first_imgFestival season is almost over, but it’s still the hottest time of year. Beyond the obvious methods of sleep, hydration, and sunscreen, we’re here to give you a few tips to survive these next few weeks, so that you can return to work on Monday without feeling like a total sun-dried tomato.Without further ado, here are five easy ways to survive multi-day music festivals:5. Keep the bugs away by putting dryer sheets in your pocket.That’s right. If you put a Bounce dryer sheet in your pocket, it will naturally repel mosquitoes from eating you alive. It’s a simple, affordable solution to one of the most annoying problems that we almost always forget to anticipate in an outdoor setting. So as you’re packing for the weekend, you might as well pre-pack each pocket with a dryer sheet. For maximum results, wear cargo shorts.4. Drink 1 liter of coconut water every day.Coconut water is an extremely valuable source of hydration. It also facilitates digestion, reduces blood pressure, provides necessary nutrients, and is a natural hangover cure.According to lifehack.org, “The ingredients in coconut water are way more effective at hydrating the human body than those of sports and energy drinks. During rigorous exercise or extended periods of physical activity, the human body loses mineral-rich fluids. However, coconut water serves as an excellent replacement medium with 294 mg of potassium and 5 mg of natural sugar per glass, unlike your favorite sports drink that only contains half of the potassium content and five times the amount of processed sugar.”So put that sports drink away, and grab what the Earth has already provided for us. Make the liter last all day and you’ll be hydrated and ready to go all night long! Best to be consumed before bed and/or when you wake up.3. Sit down as much as possible, and close your eyes.Remember that it’s a marathon, not a sprint. If you have a foldable chair, bring it. Give those puppies a rest, they deserve it! Then close your eyes. You don’t need to fall sleep in order to get rest. If you close your eyes for just a few minutes, you will save your brain enough processing energy to last just a little bit longer later on. 2. Eat a plant-based diet. Food = Energy, so make it count. If you load yourself up with processed, fried, or saturated fats, your body won’t have enough energy to last its full potential. Instead, you should eat as many fruits and vegetables as possible to ensure that your body’s energy level will sustain through the long days and nights of walking, dancing, and everything else involved in these adventurous weekends. 1. Shower. Sleeping outside is no excuse not to shower. In fact, it’s really just another reason why you SHOULD shower! Pick a time where the lines aren’t long and get yourself in the water. Not only will it bathe you of all germs and odors, but it will revitalize your very existence with a wave of fresh energy that is otherwise unattainable. A shower will save your life (and make you more pleasant to be around). Soap recommended.Have a great weekend!last_img read more

first_imgI recently came across a survey of America’s self-confessed money mistakes. Some of the findings struck me as catastrophic, not in their nature, but because there is a bombardment of information to warn us against making said mistakes. I took it a little personally. After all, what have finance writers like myself been doing for our careers if not trying to help people not make these very mistakes?The survey, by Finder.com, a comparison site for credit cards and other financial products, found that in a recent poll that over half of people surveyed regretted at least one of these money moves. Here is a breakdown of the top errors, along with all the data that you can use to scare yourself into not making the same mistakes:21 percent regret not finishing their education  You know that student debt has reached federal crisis level, with the average student this year graduating with about $35,000 in loans. Those with debt but no degree are more than likely to default (read more about this nightmare at USAToday). Meanwhile, weekly income for people with a college degree is nearly double that of those with a high school diploma only, at $1,193.Takeaway: If you go to school, finish school. If you’re not sure about a path of study, or have interests outside of traditional academia, check out technical and community college programs that have a high ROI post-grad, like those listed here. continue reading » 29SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

first_imgXeroxTheir product name was globally accepted to describe a normal business activity. The brand name was a synonym for “photocopying,” and for some reason they tried to change that. After attempting to expand the brand in the direction of more advanced automation and computing, their market share of copy machines fell sharply.When you are a common household name, you’re already winning. Trying to innovate your brand can confuse consumers and disassociate you from what you’re known for.DisneyDisney excels at marketing, and knows exactly how to run with what is hot. Rewind back to when Hannah Montana was on top (before Miley Cyrus turned into the eclectic artist she is today). Disney moved to quickly merchandise as many Hannah Montana products as possible to capitalize on the hype. The karaoke microphones and lunchboxes made sense and were appropriate to the show itself. Though they should have stopped before they got to the official Hannah Montana cherries.Opportunities present themselves to you all the time, but before you go overboard, give them some thought first. Does it make sense to your brand? Does it fit with your marketing goals? Is it appropriate?The GapThe American clothing giant has been around for nearly forty-eight years. During that time, they changed their logo twice. They made the first logo change just over six years ago to an image they hoped would appeal to a younger hipper crowd. They spent millions of dollars on rebranding only to have their second logo change happen two days later, back to the original.There is nothing wrong with rebranding your business, but you have to think of all of the effects it may have. Marketers focus on the metrics but less quantifiable factors like a customer’s feelings can have a huge impact on the adoption of change.PanasonicI got a good chuckle from this, but trust me it’s a completely warranted bit of schadenfreude. Back in the nineties, Panasonic was looking for a mascot to show off their new PC. They ended up choosing Woody the Woodpecker, a solid cartoon with a cute and approachable appearance. It was a good start, until they decided to name the new PC, “The Woody,” and decided to call their groundbreaking touch screen technology “Touch Woody.” I wish I was kidding, and unfortunately there’s more. They also named their automated online support functionality, “Internet Pecker.”Despite the hilarious nature of this marketing mishap, there is actually an effective lesson here. Remember that Panasonic is a foreign company and back in the early nineties struggling with a language barrier was a more common problem. Now, can you say that you are speaking the language of all your consumers? Before you run a campaign, try running it past people from different walks of life who are slang-savvy. 42SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Tyler Atwell Web: www.cuinsight.com Detailslast_img read more

first_img“Our resources are mostly going down to New York City, currently, since they have a lot of cases down there,” said Polhamus. While staffing is being drained, so are supplies. But the Southern Tier is stepping in to help. For more on the coronavirus, click here. The Union Volunteer Emergency Squad says two of its workers are out on quarantine because of COVID-19 exposure. Another is out while experiencing symptoms. Now when responding to a scene, EMS workers are taking extra precautions. If you have any personal protection equipment to donate, call the station at (607)754-3414. It all starts at the dispatch center. The Union Volunteer Emergency Squad is specifically looking for N95 masks, gowns, gloves, and eyewear. “While we’re all out on the front lines, the least you can do is just stay home,” said Polhamus. “Our community has donated a ton of surgical masks, they are making them and donating them, which we cannot thank them enough, as well as donations of food have been coming in to our station,” said Polhamus. Since the coronavirus outbreak hit the Southern Tier, EMTs have had to make changes to their routines. So while EMT workers are out saving lives everyday, do your part to help save theirs. “When they call 9-1-1, it would be imperative for them to tell the dispatcher they’re experiencing flu-like symptoms or if they have been exposed to the coronavirus, whether if they have or their family member has,” said Union Volunteer Emergency Squad deputy director Amy Polhamus. (WBNG) — First responders put their lives on the line every day. But now is an unprecedented time, even for them. “So now we’re already down three employees and we’re working to fill those holes as well as trying to take care of our mental aspect of our providers,” said Polhamus. “Before we used to just put on gloves and safety glasses, now we’re putting on surgical masks, gloves,” said Polhamus.last_img read more

first_imgStuff.co.nz 19 June 2016Family First Comment: A record number of submissions does not mean the law has to be changed. It simply shows how controversial the issue is, and how split the public is on the issue. What will be interesting is the breakdown for those against and those for euthanasia. That may be quite revealing! The Labour Party is supporting an inquiry into the euthanasia debate, but it’s not a priority.A record-breaking public response to a petition to legalise assisted dying has renewed calls for politicians to take action.The Voluntary Euthanasia Society (VES) said it has received 22,000 submissions on a the petition that sought an inquiry into public opinion and a law change. The final tally of submissions is yet to be confirmed by the Health Select Committee.Labour leader Andrew Little said other issues such as homelessness, employment and healthcare that would be put before a euthanasia campaign.“It would be nice to be able to do everything from Opposition but we can’t, we have to focus on those things that are about building a better nation,” he said.“That’s gonna be our priority, I make no apology for that.”In 2014, a bill which would legalise voluntary euthanasia was dropped at Little’s request, even though he was in favour of it.READ MORE: http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/health/81219380/renewed-calls-for-euthanasia-debate-as-petition-submissions-set-to-break-recordlast_img read more
