How To Combat ADHD in Kids Using a Timer

Children who have ADHD often have a difficult time waking up in the morning and staying on task throughout the day. They often become overwhelmed when they are given several sets of instructions at the same time and are easily distracted. Using a timer can help them schedule their tasks, estimate how long each task will take, take breaks without being distracted and schedule their most important task for the time of day they are most productive. 

 Alarm Clock

A timer is more useful to children who have been diagnosed with ADHD than an alarm clock because it can be set to go off at certain intervals until it is disabled. Children who suffer from ADHD commonly get up when their alarm clock goes off, but return to bed as soon as it is quieted and continue sleeping until much later in the day. Having a timer that sounds every five or ten minutes helps to ensure they will get out of bed and start their day at the right time.

Spam – The Less Than Obvious Destruction

Are you one of the millions of people who read their spam messages before the delete them? If you are, then you are a contributor in creating millions of metric tons of Green House Gas emissions every year just by reading spam messages. You may not have thought of it, but you use an energy source to boot up your computer and to read your spam messages. And you’re just one of many, trillion that is, that does the same.

The United States is the largest producer of spam messages. China closes in at second place, and then India in third. Through the use of infographics like this one, we can help spread the word to reduce some of the spam people receive in their inboxes. If everyone would only delete their spam messages instead of reading them, we’d be able to cut down on the amount of Green House Gases emitted into the atmosphere every year.

Take a look at the infographic before you continue your reading.

Carbon Dioxide Chokes the Environment

The amount of carbon dioxide produced when over 52% of people read and then delete their spam messages is astronomical. Every year, there is 28.5 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emitted into the environment every year. People use an energy source to power up their laptop or pc, which causes an increase in Green House Gas emissions. It’s even worse if they forward or print them.

You don’t want to be the one who contributes to global warming by reading their spam messages, now do you? It’s time to recheck your email filters and doing your little – but important, none the less – part in keeping global warming in check.

Now that you know more about how to relay powerful messages through infographics, you may want to find an SEO company to create one for your company. Post written by guest blogger Shane.

Getting An Insight Into Your Personality Through Your Teeth

Many believe that palm readers can tell a lot about a person based on the intricacies of their hand. While that is a false claim, interestingly, the same principle can also be applied to someone’s smile. Not only are teeth indicative of overall health and hygiene, but they can also be an indicator of many personality traits and habits. Even a complete stranger can get a better understanding of someone’s disposition by looking at the size and shape of certain teeth.

Some of the information that can be deciphered from tooth structure includes gender, age, and whether the person is generally calm or anxious. Negative behaviors such as smoking, high anxiety, or chronic stress can physically alter the shape of someone’s smile. Reducing these recurrent behaviors can prevent premature aging and destruction of the tooth. The most common problem that occurs as a result of all of this physical and emotional stress is grinding of the teeth. If a dentist notices evidence of this behavior at a checkup then it might be time for a lifestyle change. Let us explore more in the infographic below.

An Infographic Guide To Surviving a Nuclear Attack

A nuclear holocaust can be a challenging time for many individuals and their families. While a nuclear holocaust may result in the death of billions of people and the erosion of humanity’s promising future, there’s several steps that one can take to make doomsday a more relaxing and enjoyable experience.

It’s important to make sure that one has adequate food and shelter when planning for a nuclear holocaust. Since a nuclear winter can last for several decades, it may be necessary for one to live permanently underground. Since it can be challenging to build an adequate structure, it’s often a good idea to re-purpose an existing missile silo or other underground structure. This can be a great way to save money and ensure one has access to a facility.

In addition, it’s important to have an underground farm for raising crops. It may be necessary for generations of future children to live underground.
