Always have a few prepared. Don't be afraid of silence, but be ready for when it's just too awkward:
You probably know this moment well: everyone has said what they wanted to say and an awkward silence fills the room. Well don't be afraid and save the day with a few of your best stories worth telling.

A good strategy for getting the most value.
Whether you're negotiating some kind of business deal, there are a lot of ways you can approach it. A recent study suggests, however, that the best strategy for negotiating down might be to offer a "bolstering range offer."

The "bolstering range offer" seems pretty common sense to me, it's the technique I regularly use anyway.

Get all your friends together:
Planning your or your family's meals ahead of time is a great way to beat stress and save some cash. If you're not up for doing all that cooking alone, you can host a freezer meal party and cook with your friends.

It's ridiculous how easy it is to stream media nowadays.
When was the last time you burned a DVD so you could watch a video on your TV? Or set up a laptop on the living room carpet, cables strewn about, so you could watch a video on the big screen? That's all becoming old hat, thanks to apps like AllCast.

Rice cookers...what can't they do?
Rice cookers aren't just for rice. They can make giant pancakes, cook up a batch of biryani, and can even do double duty a humidifier. They can also make a killer mac and cheese.

Control the caffeine in your cup of tea:
Tea is a wonder drink for health but tea lovers also drink it for the enjoyment and an alertness boost. If you care about the amount of caffeine available to you from the tea, tweak the recommended brewing times.

I'd be glad to consider another dr. deemed more credible than the Oz. But until then he is the Donahue of medical media.

If you have one grater in your entire kitchen, make sure it's this one.
When it comes to kitchen equipment, there are some instances where you must accept no substitutes. Like for a sharp chef's knife, or a heavy-bottomed cast iron skillet. Or a Microplane rasp grater.

Snap your windows into place every time.
Mac: We've seen a lot of apps that mimic Windows' snapping feature where open windows are automatically opened in different positions, but Better Window Manager manages to combine a lot of features into a small package. It allows you to save window states, manage shortcuts, and more.

The Intel Edison's a cool device, but it's a little complicated to get started.
The Intel Edison is a DIY electronics board that we haven't talked a lot about here on Lifehacker, but is incredibly popular for internet of things projects. It's a little confusing at a glance, so Instructables user DangerousTim put together a beginner's guide that covers the basics of setting it up.

It's not always a nice, linear progression.
If you're losing weight, your progress will stall at some point. Even if you are doing everything right, the number on the scale will stop budging. Here's what to do when this happens.

Over planning your time and work might be a one-way ticket to burnout.
Short-term thinking gets a bad rap when we talk about time management, but if you focus purely on your long-term goals, you might be on the road to burnout. Neglecting your immediate, short-term needs can just stress you out more, despite your meticulous planning.

I can't think of the last time I met someone that thinks too long term. Quite the opposite, most don't think long term enough.
