NATIONAL SWAP IDEAS DAY

National Swap Ideas Day, which is observed annually on September 10th, encourages us to share a creative or helpful idea with someone and trade them for their ideas in return.

Swapping ideas today does not have to be done on a one-on-one basis.  It would be fun for a group of people to get together and share ideas.  People could share their thoughts and concepts and also learn from each other, while gathered in a social grouping.

Image result for leopard gecko Image result for scorpions  Image result for african millipedes 
A museum in Philadelphia is short a few bugs. Well, more than a few. Approximately 7,000 insects, spiders and scorpions — and a number of lizards — were recently stolen from the Philadelphia Insectarium and Butterfly Pavilion.
The purloined critters are estimated to be worth about $40,000, and museum officials suspect that the thieves will try to sell many of the highly prized creatures to collectors.
Exotic species such as orchid mantises, giant African millipedes and leopard geckos are among the missing, and museum employees are thought to be responsible for the theft, which is currently under investigation by the FBI.

Did you know????

Music and Emotion

Music and Emotion - SyncProject


Your Brain is Musical, Even If You Think You Might Not Be

Focus. Classical music is a winner at helping you focus. Music that has a tempo of 60 bpm (beats per minute) increases the efficiency of the brain in processing information. The best way to use it is to have it playing softly in the background as you get on with your tasks.
Expression. The next time you’re finding it hard to talk about or express your emotions, try turning to music for help. Creating your own music – whether simply strumming a guitar or composing lyrics to a song – can help you express and process your emotions. It’s more about how it makes you feel, than how it sounds. Remember that no one ever has to hear your music if you don’t want them to.
Social connection. Music can stop you from feeling lonely or isolated. Whether it’s sharing playlists with your friends, or meeting new, like-minded people at your favourite band’s next gig, music connects people.
Relaxation.Okay,so this isn’t a huge scientific breakthrough, but it’s worth repeating: music helps you to relax. If you choose the right kind of music, change into some comfy clothes and put your feet up, it’sa safe bet that you’ll feel relaxed in no time.
Motivation. You need to vacuum the house/study/get some exercise, but you just can’t get off the couch? Use your favourite music as a motivational force. Crank up the volume on a killer tune and chances are you’ll find it that much easier to get started.


MAKE IT A GREAT DAY, E.R.!!!

DID YOU KNOW????
Image result for Hurricane Florence Image result for wild horses of the outer banks
 Hurricane 'Flo' - How will it affect the Wild Horses of the Outer Banks of North Carolina?
As Hurricane Florence approaches, many are expressing concern about how the horses will fare during the powerful storm.Wildlife experts say they needn't worry. Wild horses are believed to have first settled on the Outer Banks hundreds of years ago and have survived many powerful storms. A wildlife biologist based at Cape Lookout National Seashore, where 118 wild horses live on Shackleford Banks, said the horses are highly sensitive to weather changes and instinctively know what to do in a storm. They go to higher ground during flooding, including the dunes, and head for shrub thickets and a maritime forest during high winds.

Thought for the day.......Image result for how volunteering helps your wellness

Think about volunteering.      Why?
https://kyndhub.com/kynd-kit/
ClassWish.org
volunteers@dorotusa.org, Carrie Jacobs       Help a Senior celebrate their birthday!!!

Benefits:

 

When you help others you also help yourself. Volunteering brings the community together to help the less fortunate or improve quality of life for everyone. Whether you are working to save animals or mentoring children, volunteering is a rewarding way to help your community. Medical health experts have also discovered that it imparts many health benefits on you. 

Builds Self Esteem Volunteering forces you outside of your comfort zone. Whether it is meeting and working with new people, or mastering a new skill, volunteering forces you to grow as a person. According to University of Minnesota psychologist Mark Snyder, “people who volunteer tend to have higher self-esteem, psychological well-being, and happiness.”
Reduces Stress Modern life can leave us anxious, alienated, and overburdened. When you volunteer, you check your own problems at the door to help someone else with theirs. The social interaction, meaningful work, and exercise decrease stress levels.
Creates A Sense of Purpose Philosophers aren’t the only ones looking for a sense of purpose in life. Many people struggle to define what their life is all about. The truth is that most jobs are not all that fulfilling. Volunteering gives you the opportunity to find a cause you identify with and believe in and gives you a way to accomplish it.
Social Support  Most volunteer organizations muster the collective effort of a whole team, fostering close connections and creating tight bonds between volunteers.  Studies show that volunteering helps create a social connection that decreases depression and loneliness. It is particularly beneficial to help older people and retirees maintain a social network later in life.
Cardiovascular Health A Carnegie Melon study identified a tentative link between volunteerism and decreased risk of hypertension among adults 50 years or older. The study found that older adults who had volunteered at least 200 hours over the course of a year were less likely to develop hypertension than nonvolunteers.  It suggests higher levels of physical activity and better mental health as possible explanations.
Lower Mortality Rates
Improved cardiovascular health is just one of the ways that studies show volunteering decreases mortality rates.
Promotes Travel Volunteering strengthens your local community. Chances are you can find a great cause just down the street. But what if you want to save the whales, or provided medical assistance elsewhere? Global volunteer opportunities draw conscientious people from all over the world to help on a cause. At HFR we celebrate anything that promotes travel. Volunteering expands your horizons and lets you see the world while helping others. Now that’s a worthy cause.
Makes You Happy Think of the last time you were undeniably happy. When you felt a radiating feeling of contentedness and positivity that could not be mistaken as anything else. Maybe you felt it right after a hard workout on a beautiful day, or over a home cooked meal with friends and family.

************************************************************
Where did the "FRINGE FESTIVAL" come from??

Such festivals have their roots in Scotland. Upon its launch in 1947, the Edinburgh International Festival of performing arts was eclipsed by a more grassroots event.
In makeshift venues around the city -- "round the fringe" of the official performing arts festival, one journalist put it -- artists began mounting small-scale, independent performances.
The "fringe festival" concept was born.
This freewheeling style of celebrating the arts is finally gaining a foothold in America: the U.S. Association of Fringe Festivals lists 24 annual events in its directory; of these, half are 5 years old or less.
Fringes are generally distinguished by short, unconventional performances, low-cost tickets and a large share of ticket sales returned to artists. Many open their stages to amateurs as well as seasoned acts.

For monarchs, that overwintering ground is found high up on just a few mountains in central Mexico. Once there, the monarchs huddle together by the millions on the branches of oyamel fir trees.

Pepperoni Pizza Day September 20

According to legend, Raffaele Esposito created the first pizza in June of 1889 in honor of the Queen of Italy, Margherita of Savoy. He created the Pizza Margherita, a pizza topped with tomatoes, basil and mozzarella, which represented the colors of the Italian flag. While pizza has evolved since that time to include a multitude of toppings from anchovies and pineapple to sausage and bacon, pepperoni remains the most popular.

Italian-Americans developed the ever-popular topping through time-honored sausage making techniques. The seasoned pork and beef sausage is smoked and cured until the resulting product is ready to be sliced and placed on a delicious pie.

The songs of humpback or blue whales remain the most well known, but new research is helping to confirm that an even more impressive songster swims, and sings among them.

The bowhead whale has the most impressive repertoire of all whales, and scientists have just recorded 12 unique songs being sung by bowhead whales on their annual migration.

Jeans are pants made from denim or dungaree cloth. They were invented by Jacob Davis and Levi Strauss in 1873 and a worn still but in a different context. Jeans are named after the city of Genoa in Italy, a place where cotton corduroy, called either jean or jeane, was manufactured. Levi Strauss came from Germany to New York in 1851 to join his older brother who had a dry goods store.

In 1853 he heard about Gold Rush in the West so moved to San Francisco to establish Western Branch of the family dry goods business. There he sold, among other things, cotton cloth. One of his customers was Jacob W. Davis, a tailor from Reno, Nevada. Davis made functional items such as tents, horse blankets, and wagon covers.

One day, his customer ordered a pair of sturdy pants that could withstand hard work. He made them from denim that he bought from Levi Strauss & Co and made them stronger by placing copper rivets at the places pants rip the most: pockets and flies. When he wanted to patent them, he wrote to Levi Strauss, and they became partners. They opened a bigger factory, and that is how jeans were born.

A museum in Philadelphia is short a few bugs. Well, more than a few. Approximately 7,000 insects, spiders and scorpions — and a number of lizards — were recently stolen from the Philadelphia Insectarium and Butterfly Pavilion.

The purloined critters are estimated to be worth about $40,000, and museum officials suspect that the thieves will try to sell many of the highly prized creatures to collectors, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported.   

Exotic species such as orchid mantises, giant African millipedes and leopard geckos are among the missing, and museum employees are thought to be responsible for the theft, which is currently under investigation by the FB
