Think before you speak

It is easy to do something in the heat of the moment and then regret it later. Take a few moments to collect your thoughts and then speak. Allow others to talk during the time you are thinking.

With vinegar

Vinegar is highly acidic, and as such, kills plants quickly and effectively.

Fill a spray bottle with vinegar and spray the ivy thoroughly. Be careful to only spray the ivy, as it will kill any nearby plants. After a couple of days, the leaves should turn brown. You can then remove the leaves to minimize any chance of propagation.

If there are still some green leaves, spray those too and repeat the process. Removing leaves that are still alive can damage tree bark and do more harm than good.


Virtualization enables you to use several operating systems on your computer hardware at the same time.

On a Mac, virtualization uses a hypervisor (a software layer), for emulating the underlying hardware. Because of this, a guest operating system that runs on a virtual machine runs noticeably slower than in Boot Camp. But unlike Boot Camp, you can run the Mac OS and the guest OS both at the same time.

For Mac, there are 3 primary virtualization apps: Parallels, VMWare Fusion, and VirtualBox.

Start your essay with a quote

Quotes are a fun and easy way of starting an essay as it takes some pressure off you as a writer. It hooks your reader’s attention and adds the narrative element that gives your essay a creative and engaging opening. Example:

“Our problem is that we don’t learn our history! One often hears that said in the black community.” - John McWhorter

Interactive sessions

Learning management systems like Edmodo, Moodle, and Blackboard are capable of creating interactive learning activities like quizzes. Just go through the instructions for creating them and you will have set up an excellent way to teach your students more engagingly.

Use a knife

You can use a knife to zest a lemon, but it will take a few minutes longer than using a zester. Use a knife only if you don’t have a zester, peeler, or grater. Hold the lime down on a counter. Take a knife and cut the thinnest stripe of the lime. Avoid cutting the white part as it is bitter. Put the peeled slice in a cutting mat and cut it into equal strips. You can cut it again into dice if you want to use it for baking.

Avoid Backhanded Compliments

Women hate compliments that compare them or insult them. A compliment that insults her kind, race, gender, or anything that she is proud of will be a turn-off. Avoid saying things like; “You are too smart to be blonde” or “If you were'nt so pretty, I would have never dated you”
