Food is not only a necessary source of energy for your body. It can also help you get through a difficult moment – who has never dug into a tub of ice cream after a hard breakup or just a rough day at the office? Food can also be a fun way to discover new cultures. And some foods, well they can be downright weird. Each year sees new food trends, some more strange than others. Here are our top six weird food trends at the beginning of 2019. [Read more…]
Scientists have long been interested in the role first impressions have in human interactions. Not many of us like to think that we make decisions and judgements about others within the first few moments of meeting. It sounds prejudicial or unfair, to say the least. However, research has been widely reported around the world that suggests we may be more susceptible to the power of first impressions that has ever been considered before. It seems that we don’t make our first impressions within the first minute or two of meeting – it can be as little as a few seconds. What does the latest scientific research tell us about first impressions and how to make good ones? [Read more…]
If you didn’t know that sporting activities were good for you, it likely means that you’ve ignored every conversation you’ve ever had with every human. Or at least every conversation you’ve had with someone who does Crossfit or Yoga.
Sports are, essentially, a great form of regular exercise. This helps burn up excess weight, keep your heart going, and lower bad cholesterol levels. If you’re looking to manage your weight, there is no better option than getting involved in one or the other physical sport. You will, let’s just be clear about it, probably live longer. Unless of course you get hit by a bus. No amount of jogging or rowing will save you then. [Read more…]

Imagine you’re Sony and you’ve just taken a look at the calendar, only to realise that the holiday season is incoming and you really don’t have that much on offer. At least not as far as new hardware is concerned. Yes, there are the big video game releases that are all but expected, but in terms of something physical, it seems to have slipped your mind. Panic!
Don’t sweat it. There is always an answer; you just have to give it a little thought. What hardware can you release that won’t require any additional effort in terms of technology, and can literally use something that already exists? But perhaps it just needs be tweaked a little to appear new and revolutionary. [Read more…]
Bullshit Jobs; A Theory, is a book by David Graeber. Although controversial and widely debated by a number of critics, the book has still resulted in many corporations taking a serious look at their corporate structure, and asking just how many of the official jobs are actually necessary. Although it is not just asking how necessary many job titles are, but if they are actually mentally scaring to those who have them. [Read more…]
New Zealand is a wonderful part of the world to live in. From the stunning landscapes to the world-class cities, there is little that a resident can complain about, and spending time in the sun is part and parcel of the local lifestyle.
However, there is one aspect of the country that is only recently being properly investigated, and that is that New Zealand has the highest rate of skin cancer in the world. Australia, New Zealand’s nearby neighbour, comes in second place, highlighting just how much of an issue the disease is in this part of the world. [Read more…]
Android is the most popular operating system when it comes to mobile phones. With approximately 55% of the market it’s no wonder, especially considering the plethora of apps users can access.

Video poker, like online blackjack, is a casino card game of luck and strategy. Wild Jack Casino has loads of online video poker variations for your online gambling entertainment, and they are all fun and exciting.
How to Play Video Poker Online
It is important to understand that video poker is not played against the dealer or against other poker players. It is a solitary game in which the object is to obtain a winning poker hand and collect a payout according to the payout table.
You start your video poker game with five cards. You click on the cards you want to “Hold”, and click “Draw” trade in the others for new cards. Then you compare your final hand with the payout table to see if, and how much, you won.
Winning at Video Poker
The best hand in video poker is a Royal Flush. That’s a 10-Jack-Queen-King-Ace, all of the same suit. In an online video poker game like Jacks Or Better, a Royal Flush will pay you 4,000 coins on a 5-coin bet.

How to Play Roulette
The roulette wheel has little numbered pockets ranging from 0 to 36. Your goal as a roulette player is to predict which number the roulette ball will land on. If you predict correctly, you win your roulette bet.
A bet on a single roulette number is called a Straight Up bet. That’s the bet with the highest payout odds when you win: 35-to-1. A winning bet on all the Red or Black numbers or all the Even or Odd numbers pays 1-to-1; in other words, you double your money.
There are all kinds of other roulette bets with names like Split Bet, Street Bet, Corner Bet, and Column Bet.
