Strict Moms Contribute Much To The Success Of Their Daughters, Science Says

To nag or not to nag, that is the question that has troubled probably any mother that ever lived, and dramatic teenage girls’ reactions to nagging aren’t making this decision any easier. Luckily (or sadly), mothers can rest assured that their at times annoying preaching actually helps their teenage girls in making the right decisions as far as their education is concerned, as a study from the University of Essex shows. It also helps them to make better choices in life in terms of getting well-paid jobs and avoiding teenage pregnancy. Pushy moms had it right all this time According to the study conducted on 15,500 teenage girls aged 13 and 14 between 2004 and 2010, this does not go on to say that a child of a nagging mother is much more obedient and will approve of every piece of advice she is given, but quite contrary, that a child will, on a somewhat subconscious level, remember mother’s advice when it comes to making important decisions and do the right thing.

Genuine team spirit As they were coming home after a rugby game, students from Cooma North Public School in New South Wales showed a true team spirit outside the field as they together with their parents and teachers rushed to help an 81-year old struggling with woodpile in his garden. It didn’t take long time for these boys to move the logs to the back of the garden and put a smile of gratitude on the old man’s face. The great deed didn’t go unnoticed. Apart from affecting the old man, the students’ doing has deeply moved anyone who has heard or read about it. The school’s principal was full of praise for the boys in her Facebook post that got more than 14,000 shares. Entire community honored the boys’ noble act in their comments and likes, the most grateful being the daughter of the gentleman. Tru

4 Surprising Reasons Tomorrow's Technology May NOT Be More Advanced

In the past 100 years, we’ve seen incredible technological advancements become increasingly commonplace. To realize just how quickly things are moving, consider this: the Intel Pentium 3 processor, produced from 1999 to 2003, had a max CPU clock rate of 1.13 GHz . The iPhone 7’s A10 Fusion processor’s max clock rate? 2.34 GHz — more than double that of the Pentium 3’s. However, there are multiple reasons why technological advancement may hit a dead end. Here are four of the main ones, including one which may slow down the growth of the internet in the very near future. 1. Battery Life Speaking of the iPhone — did you know that the battery takes up most of the space inside its case ? That’s because we’re still using a variation on the same rechargeable lithium-ion battery technology that was first commercially released in 1991 by Sony. As gadgets become more complex and power-consuming, those batteries need to be larger to power them. Unless we find a new way to power our device
