I recently blogged about Congressional hearings that were called to consider problems with new U.S. nuclear weapons programs. It appears that faulty electrical components that were purchased on the retail marked for electronics resulted in huge cost overruns and delays. I now have more details on those problems to share.
Part 1 of 2 Parts
One of the biggest problems with nuclear power generation is the accumulation of hundreds of tons of spent nuclear fuel with no system of permanently disposal. All nations using nuclear power have a problem with disposing of spent nuclear fuel.
Lately I'm obsessed with Jordan's Skinny Mixes, and for good reason: they are calorie-free, carb and sugar-free and taste incredible. If you don't do artificial sweeteners, unfortunately they don't have a lot of natural sweeteners, but I'm hoping that their collection grows. In the meantime, I'm grateful for the swaps, especially the really flavorful blends like Unicorn, which is blue raspberry flavored and my favorite.
If you're ready to take game night out in the world and away from your introvert haven, a great place to begin is... the art museum! This sounds weird, but if you and your friends want to try something totally different, these games are a great way to embrace new experiences. If you're teaching kids and teens about art, you can use them for that, too.
It's the season of all things pumpkin, but that doesn't mean that everything has to be complex--or that you have to venture out and spend a lot of money on desserts. In fact, if you have a bottle of pumpkin spice syrup or a spice mix on hand, you can pretty much make whatever you want. I like to blend pumpkin spice blends with my coffee and some cream or coconut milk for a frothy treat!
One of the easiest ways to stir up controversy today is to discuss whether or not you support a reboot of any movie or TV show in history. It's really easy to make people big mad this way, which really makes no sense since a lot of what they like is just a reboot or retelling of something else and they don't even know it.
People raise a lot of stink about the germs found on keyboards, kitchen sponges and cell phones, but the equipment we use to work out at the gym is also covered in gross bacteria microbes that you wouldn't want to touch if you knew they were there. A treadmill, for example, has 416 times the amount of bacteria as a toilet!
Even though I have more pets than many people I know, between our dogs, cats, chickens, guinea pigs and mice, I can't really empathize with people who feel the need to take perfect pics with their pets. I have an ancient, outdated Android that has never taken decent pics and I use it on my own family members, let alone the critters, and while sometimes I do wish for better picture-taking skills, I'm usually okay with this.
There weren't very many people "storming" Area 51, which led to some hilarious memes about thousands of people RSVPing to a party and only a handful showing. We all know how that feels (and it's ridiculous, so stop RSVPing if you're not going already, and get rid of the maybe option, Facebook!).
Remember the Great Pumpkin Shortage (which sounds like it should end with Charlie Brown) a few years ago? It was impossible to make anything pumpkin, from pies to dips to even beverages, unless you bought them pre-made, at least where I live. Pumpkin syrups like this one help remedy that problem by not only giving you the flavor you want without the pumpkin, but also cut the calories and sugar you would normally add. (Actually, combatting climate change would be a better help to saving any produce from freak weather patterns, but that's another post!)
If you've ever been around deer before, you know that they're like prettier goats. They look so gentle and serene with those big eyes, but they will eat everything you've got--including your wedding bouquet, as this bride found out during her wedding shoot in Holland!
I'm a big fan of Jordan's Skinny Mixes, and the more of them I try, the better recipes I find. Take this super simple one for Unicorn Sparklers. All you need is some champagne, your syrup and the whipped foam, if you want it. Poof! A gorgeous, tasty drink in seconds. I suggest Unicorn because it's my favorite Skinny Syrup, but you could make this with so many other syrups that they offer that the ideas are really endless.
