5 Things You Should Know – Part 189

Here are 5 things you should know.

1. Planet Fitness has a 3 day refund policy that they do not tell you about before or after signing.

2. At Universities in the United States one “credit hour” = one hour of lecture and two hours of independent work per week (or three hours of lab work).

This makes a 15 credit hour semester a 45-hour time commitment per week. Students who meet this standard every week tend to do very well.

3. If you’re using Eventbrite for your event’s ticketing, you’re giving them rights to enter your event premise and record your event for free and also granting them copyright of the recorded material.

Just came across this clause of Eventbrite’s merchant agreement –

  1. Permissions You Grant us to Film and Record Your Events.

You grant permission to Eventbrite and its agents to enter onto and remain on the premises (including real property, fixtures, equipment, or other personal property) where your event is hosted (and any other premises you and Eventbrite mutually approve) (collectively, the “Premises”) with personnel and equipment for the purpose of photographing and recording the Premises, both internally and externally in connection with the production of digital content on the date of your event(s) and any other dates reasonably requested by Eventbrite (for example, during setup and breakdown for the event) (the “Shoot”). You, on behalf of yourself, your employees, independent contractors, invitees, licensees, performers, exhibitors, attendees, and all other individuals present at the Shoot (collectively, the “Subjects”), grant permission to Eventbrite and its agents, successors and assigns to record and use the image, likeness, appearance, movements, performances, and statements of the Subjects in any live or recorded audio, video, or photographic display or other transmission, exhibition, publication or reproduction made of, or at, the event (regardless of whether before, during or after the event) for any purpose (including, without limitation, the advertising, promotion and other exploitation of Eventbrite’s brand, Trademarks, Services, or events hosted on the Sites), in any manner, in any medium or context now known or hereafter developed, without further authorization from, or compensation to, the Subjects or anyone acting on a Subject’s behalf.
So, if you were not aware of this, probably find an alternative.

4. Not to feed bread to ducks, as it is bad for them. Instead, consider corn or diced grapes.

The most common items fed to ducks and waterfowl are also the least nutritious and most unhealthy. Bread, chips, crackers, donuts, cereal, popcorn and similar bread-type products and scraps are never best to feed birds. Feeding ducks bread is bad because the food has little nutritional value and can harm ducklings’ growth, pollute waterways and attract rodents and other pests. Similarly, ducks should not be fed any products that are spoiled or moldy, different types of mold can be fatal to waterfowl.

So what to feed the ducks?
The best foods to offer ducks include:

Cracked Corn

Wheat, barley or similar grains

Oats (uncooked; rolled or quick)

Rice (cooked or uncooked)

Milo seed

Birdseed (any type or mix)

Grapes (cut in half or quartered if very large)

Nut hearts or pieces (any type but without salt, coatings or flavoring)

Frozen peas or corn (defrosted, no need to cook)

Earthworms (fishing bait or dug from the garden)

Mealworms (fresh or dried)

Chopped lettuce or other greens or salad mixes

Vegetable trimmings or peels (chopped into small pieces)

Duck feed pellets or poultry starter pellets, they can be purchased from farming or agricultural supply stores.

5. There is a website called FutureMe where you can write letters and set the time for them to be delivered to you.
