Other fountains are there to make your wish come true, all you have to do is throw in some money and you’ll feel much luckier. But the fountains on this list are a bit different, take a look!
This interesting fountain made me to want to barf, how about you?
Whistle While You Work: How to Be Content in Your Job
Jobs are a sad fact of life in our world. People have to work in order to earn money that they use to live and buy things which in turn helps other people make their own money to live their lives. It is a viscous cycle, but every adult or even fiscally minded teenager knows the necessity of jobs to attain financial independence or at least a sense of that type of security. However, the world is full of jobs that people do not want to do but must be done in order to have the world be the way we want it. Also, some jobs are just not the ideal choice for certain people if they do not fit their skills, personal preferences, or any other million reasons why someone would not want a job. What happens though when you need the money of a job but are not too fond of the work, workplace, or coworkers? There are a few techniques though that you can utilize which can ease the symptoms of job discontentment until you find your dream job—whatever occupation or calling that ultimate goal might be.
It sounds cliché but the fact remains firm that it is true. A huge portion of attitude (particularly when pertaining to happiness) is influenced by your own approach to the situation. Basically, feelings about a certain thing or situation act as self fulfilling prophecies for the majority of people. However, to add another cliché to the mix—it is the simplest things that are the hardest. It is difficult to focus on being happy when the things that make you happy are few and far between at your job. All you have to do though is keep your eyes on the prize—the mental prize. Find a single thing about your job that you do enjoy and try to specialize in it. Make sure to do that aspect of your job everyday and try to become perfect at it so that when others need that particular job done they come to you, allowing you to spend more of your workday doing something that does not make you want to jump off the building.
Thankless Jobs That Are Vital to Our Society
Having a job is one of the main markers of transitioning from childhood to adulthood—from being a dependent to an independent. However, most people long to settle themselves in a career rather than a mere job. They want a career that they like, that they’re good at, and that can make a difference in the world so that they can feel they are needed. Our modern society and civilization has many job offerings that will fit the bill for various people. The problem comes along when there are jobs and careers that seem under appreciated or even overlooked in our world. People in these careers are faced with the knowledge that civilization as we know it would crumble without them but the rest of society tends to shrug them off or at the least undermine their work. They must continue with their jobs even though others may treat them as stereotypes or scoff at them because even if society does not know of their extremely important roles they understand the necessity of their dedication.
Passing on the collective knowledge of past generations to future generations is one of the noblest callings in the world. Without someone to teach young people basic facts, skills, and ultimately the ideas and concepts that will allow them to be the best they can be in the world at large. Teachers do not make as much money as stockbrokers. They do not have the prestige of doctors. They do not have the power of lawyers. However, they are the reason that we have those other occupations at all. Most of the time people blow them off by saying they only work nine to ten months out of the year and merely sit around babysitting all day, but the fact remains the same that they are absolutely necessary for all other jobs, careers, and professions to manifest. Also, do you recall how some students treated their teachers? Imagine putting up with that all day long and see if you do not absolutely require a month or two respite just to make sure you don’t end up having a total mental meltdown. They have to plan lessons, make tests, compose lectures, grade homework, create rubrics, and a million other things that they cannot do during the school day because they are constantly in the classroom teaching their students. They bring work home with them every night without fail just to do the bare minimum requirements of their jobs—not including duties of extracurricular activities, field trips, or chaperone responsibilities.
Tattoos are a time honored tradition of body modification that is a marking or design of indelible ink that is inserted into the dermis layer of skin to permanently stay—at least until modern laser techniques were perfected or if the person wanted a large scar from where he or she dig out the entire chunk of flesh that contained the mark. Throughout the centuries, countless tribal peoples have practiced tattooing even though the name for it that we use today actually comes from the Polynesian language’s word for them of “tatau.” The purposes of these inked markings vary for each culture, group, and time period that ever used them. Sometimes they are for spiritual purposes such as to protect against evil or to draw certain forms of magic to the person. They can also be used as identification. One of the most notorious forms of tattoo identification was the numbering of prisoners in Nazi concentration camps, but tattoos have also been used to mark rank, status, or even links with particular groups (such as gangs or even certain ethnicities).
5 Little Known Facts About World War II
The history of World War II is well documented and much more is known about this conflict than any other in history due to the amount of surviving documents and, of course, living testimony. However with such a wealth of information, many of the interesting events and facts about the war are all but forgotten, here are a few examples.
The BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) was the most listened to radio station in the world during the war. The news in particular had a reputation for its honesty about world events and millions of people throughout Nazi occupied Europe tuned in at great risk to themselves.
At the beginning of certain programs, the BBC would put in what were known as ‘message personnels’, which were coded messages to resistance groups throughout Europe. To most listeners, the messages meant nothing but to the informed few, they could mean anything from ‘blow up a section of railway line’ at a given point, to ‘a new SOE agent will arrive shortly’.
The most awaited secret message by the BBC came with the approach of D-Day and was from the first two lines of a Paul Verlaine couplet. “The long sobs of the violins of Autumn” was the first and told resistance groups to prepare, soon after, the second, “Soothes my heart with a monotonous languor”, told all resistance groups in France that the time to fight had come.
10 Cool Facts About The Human Body
Our bodies are truly amazing things. Using these vessels every day, we sometimes forget just how amazing they are. However, the human body is a truly revolutionary machine of evolution and while we don’t have wings, armor, venom, or claws, there are some truly cool things about our bodies.
Many of us think that if we were to lose one of our internal organs, we would die immediately, and while this is true for the heart, it is not so true for other internal organs. In fact, you can remove your spleen, one kidney, one lung, as well as 75 percent of your liver, 80 percent of your intestines and most of the organs located in your pelvis and groin area. That’s right, all of those organs can disappear and you will still be functioning. You may not function so well, and you may not live for as long as you hoped, but yes, you can live without those organs.
