Manage Your Stress with Olive

olive-bracelet-930x360

Everybody has stress, and we all have our different ways of dealing with it. Some of us are maybe not so good at it, though, so our stress overwhelms us, to the detriment of our emotional and physical well-being. The trouble I’ve found with a great deal of the stress …

Hoverboards Are Being Kickstarted, The Future Is Now

hoverboard

Has there been a more sought-after fictitious movie item than Marty McFly’s hoverboard in the Back to the Future series? Sure, we joke about flying cars and when I was kid I really wanted a pet mogwai (I would’ve definitely turned it into a Gremlin on accident), but Marty’s pink …

Please tell me I’m not the only one. I have never, and I do mean never, inserted a USB plug the right way on the first try. Not once. Not even when I look at it first, because invariably the port is the opposite way of how I …

Junk-Press-andrew-simpson-1.jpg.662x0_q100_crop-scale

There are days when all I find in my mailbox is junk mail. Coupons for products I’ll never buy, ads for businesses I’ve never heard of, and this time of year 847 political flyers per day. I don’t dare miss a day cleaning out the box, though, because I shudder …
