Some thoughts into Earth Hour


I know that a lot of bloggers are buzzing about Earth Hour day that will happen soon which is today. For you guys who didn’t know about Earth Hour day, let me give you a quick and brief introduction to it. Earth Hour is an annual event held by World Wide Fund for Nature/World Wildlife Fund or also known as WWF. This event was help on the last Saturday of March every year since 2007. This year, today is the last Saturday of March and people who are supporting Earth Hour will be switching off their non-essential lights and electrical equipment for an hour starting from 8.30 PM till 9.30 local time world wide to show awareness to the global climate change. Although this is an annual event, hopefully people will do this everyday and not taking Earth Hour day as an exit sign to be responsible to Earth only on that moment.

Psychology site with lots of articles

I stumbled across a nice psychology site. At first, I just think it’s just a normal blog instead of psychology website. Silly me. Seriously, I bet you will think the same too. Maybe the site is using WordPress as CMS for the psychology news.

Anyway, back to the main topic. What do you know about psychology? Give me your best shot of the definition on psychology. According to Wikipedia, psychology is an academic act and applied discipline in studying human behavior involving brain functions and human reactions according to situation.

When talking about psychology, I always remember the movie Hannibal starring Anthony Hopkins. I’m sure you guys watched the movie right? That’s what psychology all about. Maybe you all ever come across psychological test on the internet, where they asked you a series of questions and they can predict what is your personality right? I’m amazed with this type of sites but if you look on how to learn psychology and the secret behind it, I can pinpoint you to a site full of psychology articles for you to read.

On the site, you will find a big list of articles on psychology topics. It ranges from easy reading to the heavy stuff for more complex readings. There are more than 11000 articles on the site and nicely indexed. You should check the “Most Viewed Artciles” section. It offers really interesting topics on psychology. One of the title that might interest you guys there is “Over masturbation and the effect on health”. I know a lot of you might be intrigued to read this. There are a lot of other articles that might interest you, not just that one itself. So head over the site and read all you want. The best part of all, you are able to download psychology articles to your computers as PDF files too!

I don’t really know if my readers are interested in psychology or a psychologist, but hopefully this post has some benefit for my readers. Remember to give feedback after you checked out the site :cool:

Survey : Do you have water filter at home?

If you read the titles above, you might think I’m someone who wants to promote water filter products to some potential customers right? Well, seriously, I don’t sell any water filters here, so you can safely read this on without any doubts. :mrgreen:

Anyway, back to the point. So do you have  water filters at your home? Maybe some of you have, but I believe most of you don’t. The truth is, I don’t have any too. I rely on the services provided by the condominium management and I trust they have done their job well. The water is clean, doesn’t have any bad smell and it taste good when I drank it. So does that mean the water safe for you?

I always wondered about that and I made some online research myself. Turns out, the points that I gave above is not sufficient to prove the fact that the water is safe. It’s true that the water looks clean, no bad smell and tastes fine, but that doesn’t guarantee the safety of it. The fact is, although the water seems fine, it still has some unwanted minerals, a bit of mud and chlorine. Do you know that our skin is the largest organ in the system and chlorine can make the skin dry unnaturally? In order to protect our largest organ from any harmful causes, we need to have a shower water filter. This is to prevent any harmful substance especially the chlorine from affecting our skin.

If you think that water filters are expensive and wasteful or you asking if we can make our own water filters, here’s how to make a water filter. It’s simple, easy to do it yourself and much cheaper than the commercial product. It might be low in cost but it does provide the same effect as the commercial product. Remember to have a safe way of drinking the water because water plays an important role in our body function. :grin:
