5 Things You Should Know – Part 122

Here are 5 things you should know.

1. You can download the entirety of Wikipedia, and store it on a USB drive.

Wikipedia constantly dumps the database for their entire website. You can go to the link to find the right one for you.

The recommended one is described as “approximately 14 GB compressed, 58 GB uncompressed”. Use this in case your internet goes out and you gotta do research/kill time!

Here’s the page!

2.  Pedialyte is great to keep in your fridge for a hangover or when you feel super dehydrated.

Much better than sports drinks, albeit not as tasty.

3. The University of Illinois has a fantastic stain removal database that you can search for how to deal with almost any type of stain.

You can check out the database here: http://web.extension.illinois.edu/stain/index.cfm

It lets you sort by type of stain and gives step by step instructions for various materials.

4. Residents of the US that are 62 and older only have few days left to get a National Park Lifetime Pass for $10.

Starting on August 28, 2017, the senior lifetime pass increases from $10 (+ $10 online processing fee) to $80.

” The Senior Passes admit pass owner/s and passengers in a non-commercial vehicle at per-vehicle fee areas and pass owner + three adults, not to exceed four adults, where per-person fees are charged.”

5. Google Scholar provides a simple way to broadly search for scholarly literature, sources, and more.

Google Scholar is a freely accessible web search engine that indexes the full text or metadata of scholarly literature across an array of publishing formats and disciplines.

From one place, you can search across many disciplines and sources: articles, theses, books, abstracts and court opinions, from academic publishers, professional societies, online repositories, universities and other web sites.
