Life hack How To Open Jars?

Stop popping veins and making constipated faces just to get to those delicious pickles, strawberry jelly, or whatever you ve got packed away in a stuck jar. Instead do what Instructables user fungus amungus does: use a tennis ball. This trick may seem cute, but knives are involved. If you ve never dissected a tennis ball before, turn away from your screen—it s going to get graphic. But if you re already a cold-blooded tennis ball killer, you won t have any trouble. Just get any knife (although a shorter blade is best—think large Xacto knife) and stick it in the middle of the…

Life Hacks fresh eggs

The baking soda is optional, but if you choose not to use it, be sure to move the eggs to cold water (use ice) immediately after boiling. Blow from the tip to the broader base for faster de-shelling. My preferred eggs are Gold Circle Farms cage-free DHA Omega 3 eggs, which contain 150 mg of DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid) per whole egg. If you want to increase lean muscle mass, consider eating the yolks for their DHA and arachidonic acid content… Do you have any cooking hacks the world should know about?

I suck at hanging up pictures. I’m the eye ball it type of gal. Put the nail in and oops, it really isn’t very level. The problem is I can’t always wait for my husband to come home and hang up a new painting or frame I’ve purchased. Besides, if I ask him…he’ll know I bought something new and roll his eyes at that.

Life Hacks writing Papers

No assignment save the comprehensive final exam seems to engender such fear in students as the research paper, especially the open topic research paper. Faced with the prospect of writing 5, 8, 12, or more pages on a topic of their choosing, a lot of students panic, unsure what to write about and how to research it. Far too often, students endanger their grades and even their academic futures by turning to online essay sites or other sources and copying what they assume is decent work (it rarely is, of course).

Plus, PBS Kids plans to add new content weekly, so that should keep kids and parents coming back for more. One of our favorites: The Cookie Monster Playlist. How can you resist a Star Wars…
