Aloha! The List Of Places We Most Want to Live

 

You can take the man out of the Northwest but you can’t take the Northwest out of the man.  In my 30+ years in Washington I have found residents here to be extremely loyal to their home state.  Ask a Washingtonian where he/she would live IF they could live in any of the great 50 United States and more often than not they’ll stick with Washington…BUT not all U.S. residents see it that way . 

 A Harris poll reveals the top choices if you could live anywhere in the United States from Maine to Hawaii.  In the poll respondents weren’t allowed to choose the state in which they currently reside.

Power Can Corrupt And It Makes You Tall

 

We all know the experience of doing something stupid or bad and getting called on it and the resulting consequence of  “feeling small”.  Or is it just me?  Anyway, most of us have felt small at one time or another but what about the opposite?  Have you ever done something that made you feel tall?  A good deed, a moment of character?

Well if not, there may still be a chance and all you have to do is become the boss.

The Myth of the Messy Desk Exposed!

As kids some of us were told over and over again to “clean up your room”!   In fact the material mess became the battlefield for many a family fight.  Some of us held to our disorganized ways through college (how did we survive) and into the workplace.  There, the manager-as-mom chanted the old adage about a messy desk being a sign of a messy mind .  Well, score one for our side because  

new research suggests a disorganized environment may actually foster a clearer head.  Booyah!  Read on…

Study Reveal Men/Women Really Are Different

 Ladies sit down, gentlemen brace yourselves…there’s no other way to say this than to come right out with it…you – are- different.  Yup. Not the same at all and a new study proves it! (what did we spend on that!)  Check the  Public Library of Science website and  see for yourself.

The study is based on information gather from 10,000 men and women who took a questionnaire that measured 15 variations of personality traits.  Now the study was based on an American perspective so that could be an influencing factor in the results…because hey, we aren’t the French…but the picture drawn from the responses reveal men and women feel and behave in very specific man and woman ways.  Surprise surprise!  Who knew?!

Can The Right Acid Trip Improve Memory

I am a child of the ‘60’s and I’m on acid.  Hold on..don’t get ahead of me…it’s NOT what you think!  Now where was I?   I forget…ah, but the old memory is coming back…thanks to folic acid! 

Raised on a farm in the North Dakota, there wasn’t a lot of recreational “acid” in my neighborhood but who knew there were tens of thousands of acres of folic acid growing right outside my door.

Researchers are discovering Vitamin B12 and folic acid supplements could be good for your memory. “A recent study found that older adults who took them for two years had greater improvements on memory tests than those who didn’t.”

Where does folic acid come from…I forget…kidding! Foods rich in folic acid are mainly leafy vegetables such as spinach, turnip greens, lettuces, sunflower seeds, dried beans and peas, fortified cereals, collards and broccoli. Among the other foods that contain folic acid are peanuts and wheat germ.

What the study shows is that it may take some time for the improvements to kick in, but kick in they will.
