  •  Patients often do not think in terms of specific treatments, such as being on a ventilator, but rather what their life will be like after being on the ventilator. Will it hurt? Will I be able to talk to my family? Will I be able to walk out of the hospital? Will I still be able to live on my own?

  • Facebook lets you memorialize a deceased person’s profile so it will stop prompting you to poke someone in a casket, and as of this week, lets you appoint a person to take over your account when your status is ‘no longer living.’ Google has a death manager you can use to let loved ones into your email after you’ve gone searching for the heavenly gates. Apple…. well, Apple, hasn’t really addressed what happens to iBooks and iTunes music after iDie,
  • With Instant-enabled cars — like the one I rented — it’s possible they’d continue to be rented post-owner-mortem as those rentals require no action by the car’s owner beyond checking to make sure it’s cleaned out between rentals. Zaid said Getaround would “find out naturally” because all owners are assigned a community manager who would likely notice if communications dropped off.

I think you might not need life insurance if:
- You have no dependents.
- After you do the calculator it seems you have enough money in your emergency fund to pay for the total at the bottom of the page (TOTAL life insurance needed to pay off debts and expenses at death AND to provide additional monthly income to dependents).

  • 1. Who Needs Life Insurance, and for How Long
  • a “forever” life insurance policy—what the industry often refers to as a permanent policy. They are unnecessary and way too expensive.
  • Once you have accumulated assets that your dependents can fall back on—say, a sizable retirement fund or other significant investments—you no longer need life insurance.

Funny video on how to talk nerdy.
Wonder why they're called bullet points? Because they'll kill your presentation.
Sure, you can say "spatial and temporal," but why not say "space and time"

Don't say you study trabeculae…say it's the mesh-like structure of our bones because it's important to understanding and treating osteoporosis.

    1. Unstick Drawers. Remove the sticky drawer and rub a candle along the runners. Put the drawer back in and open and close a few times to make sure it sets well.

     

    2. Caulk Your Home. Candle wax is a cheap way to fill in gaps and holes around doors and windows, and save you money on your energy bill.

     

    3. Quiet a Sticky Door. Sticky doors can drive you crazy! Remedy that by removing the door from its hinges, and rubbing a candle over the hinges.

     

    4. Fix a Dent in Wood Furniture. Fill in chips and dents in furniture by rubbing a candle on the area, so the wax fills in the space. Next, use a furniture marker to match the color.
