Here are 5 more things you should know.
01. How to tell if a number is divisible by another number
1 – Always.
2 – If the number is even.
5 – If the number ends in 5 or 0.
10 – If the numbers ends in 0.
3 – Add all of the digits in the number. If the result is divisible by 3, then so is the original number. (Note that this rule can be repeated with the result if you still don’t know.)
4 – If the last 2 digits of the number are divisible by 4, then so is the entire number. If you don’t know then halve the last 2 digits twice. If you still have a whole number then it is divisible by 4.
6 – If the number passes the ‘2’ rule and the ‘3’ rule, then, yes.
8 – If the last 3 digits of the number are divisible by 8, then so is the entire number. If you don’t know then halve the last 3 digits three times. If you still have a whole number then it is divisible by 8.
9 – Add all of the digits in the number. If the result is divisible by 9, then so is the original number. (Note that this rule can be repeated with the result if you still don’t know.)
7 – Remove the last digit from the number. Take the number formed by the remaining digits and subtract by 2x the removed digit. If the result is divisible by 7, then so is the original number.
88-(9×2) = 88-18 = 70
=> 889 is divisible by 7.

04. In the US you can receive compensation if you are an innocent victim of a crime

05. How to use mammalian diving reflex to combat anxiety
All mammals have something called the “mammalian diving reflex” that forces the parasympathetic nervous system (PNS) to kick in, which functions to relax us and calm us down. When in an extremely heightened state of emotional arousal:
· Fill a bowl with icy cold water.
· Bend/lean over.
· Hold your breath.
· Put face in icy cold water for 30 seconds.
· Make sure that area underneath eyes/above cheekbones (most sensitive part of the face) feels the icy water.
