But wait – before you crack open that textbook, it’s a good idea to think about your studying strategies and learn more effectively so you can finish faster and ace that exam.

Raise your hand if you’ve ever seen someone eat something off the floor because of the five-second rule. I am. But according to this post by the New York Times, the five-second rule is actually a myth. When you drop food on the floor, and it touches germs, the germs stick to the food immediately. I guess it makes a [...]
At first glance, I thought this was some sort of exceptional painting that took goodness knows how long to perfect. I was surprised to find that this is actually a real life photo of a Hawaiian volcano spewing lava into the sea, taken under extremely risky conditions. Obviously lava burns (excuse the pun), and straying too close will not [...]
I’m sure you have all heard of Tchaikovsky’s “Sugar Plum Fairy” before, whether you’re an avid fan of his pieces, or this piece in particular was used as background music for a movie or television show you’ve watched. It’s whimsical and light – but if you listened to it, would you be able to identify the instruments used? From an [...]
I found this quite a powerful image – instead of being provided facts about pollution, we get to look under the ocean for ourselves and see what is actually masked under the waves. 4
This past weekend, I had the opportunity to participate in a water literacy conference in Kananaskis through my school’s environment club. It was an amazing experience that shed light on water resources in Alberta and its relation to industry. We participated in many workshops, and were able to hear from experts in water related fields. The oil company Statoil even [...]
In Canada, we like to think of ourselves as the "True Great North," unaffected by the cold. We joke about living in igloos, skiing to school and having pet polar bears. So what's all this complaining I always hear about it being cold out?
Waterproof iPhone? How cool is that. Maybe iPhone 5 will be waterproofed by Apple from the factory. 2
This being my second time in Las Vegas, I truly did not know what to expect from this city so well known for gambling and parties – more for the over 21 crowd. You know you’ve arrived in Vegas when you hear the slot machines ringing at McCarren International Airport. However, there’s more than just gambling in Vegas – you [...]
I don’t know about you guys, but looking at photos of oceans, lakes, rivers, even pools (without the half-naked people running about) and aquariums, make me feel serene. There’s something about the way calm bodies of water sharply and clearly reflect the sky, the mountains, the trees, the moon. I have a huge collection of photos related to water and [...]
Many people need to realize that there’s not enough water for the future. As we can feel in our life now, the weather has been weird all around the world. The climate change is frequently happening now. There’s no substitute for water. If rain doesn’t come properly and the temperatures rise, water easily evaporates. Water pollution is not always easily found. [...]
So as you may have noticed (or may not have noticed if you happen to be out of touch with the world), Calgary is currently experiencing some…fantastic weather! Don’t get me wrong, I actually quite like the rain. I mean, what’s not to like? The rain… …creates that damp earth smell (mmm, mother nature)… …leaves behind a sense of freshness [...]
