Mini Homes

It depends on who you ask, really. There rising trend of building extremely small homes out of extremely cheap materials is something that is both practical and alarming.

Saudi Female Driver

It’s pretty difficult for those of us in western society to have any comprehension at all about the life of those in eastern countries, particularly those with completely different laws, lifestyles, and worldviews.

Genetic Variation May Make People Hate Cilantro

Cilantro

From the world of fuzzy science comes the theory (some call it a fact) that there’s a genetic variation that causes people to despise the taste of cilantro. Granted, the test was pretty darn comprehensive – it consisted of nearly 30,000 people.

There are really two questions that need to be answered. First, how is it possible that an herb that is utterly despised by so many people (21% of east Asians hate it, for example) loved by so many others. For a food to be so polarizing is amazing and does not play well with the evolutionary thoughts of taste. The second (and arguably more important) question is why on earth would someone take the time to do genetic testing on 30,000 people to find out why they hate cilantro?

Bonus question: why would someone then make an infographic about the hatred towards cilantro? For better or for worse, here it is…

Touchdown

They say a goal is a dream with a deadline. It makes for a great saying but is it really that easy? Well, almost.

Sometimes, the easiest way to achieve your goals is to make them the right ones from the beginning. If your goal is to be rich, that’s not really something that can actually get you there. The intermediate goals that can help you achieve the end goal are the ones that you’ll want to focus on. Otherwise, you’ll be stuck in a rut and wondering for years why you’re still not rich.

Here is a quick infographic from iHarry that breaks down the steps from setting to achieving.
