Here are 5 things you should know.
1. You can bypass “disable your adblocker” walls on websites (like Forbes) by visiting google’s cache page for that article.
You know how when you visit a website like Forbes that doesn’t like your ad blocker because it’s cutting into their advertising profits?
They won’t even let you get to the article without disabling your ad blocker but you really want to check out the content.
The easiest workaround is to simply view the cached version in google search results
If you found the article by googling then you would simply click on the small link that says “cache” and you’re golden
If you’ve reached the page directly then you would simply search Google for the title of the article and then click the cache link
You will be taken directly to the content without all of the interstitial attempts at blocking you for whatever reason.
2. There are blood banks for pets.
Yes, there are blood banks for your furry friends. Obviously, mostly focused on dogs and cats since they are most popular.
These services often are in need of proper and reliable donors.
The blood banks exist for the same reason human blood banks do – to offer transfusions to sick pets and those undergoing surgery.
Greyhounds are the most common dog donors as they genetically have more red blood cells in their blood.
Any cat can donate, but most banks prefer they are on the larger side, weight wise, to handle the rigors of donation.
3. Resolver, a website which helps you resolve disputes with companies.
Especially useful if you have had long flight delays and cancellations you want to be compensated for.
Here’s the link. https://www.resolver.co.uk
4. Essential oils are called that because they are the “essence” of a plant, NOT because they are “essential” to human health.
An oil is “essential” in the sense that it contains the “essence of” the plant’s fragrance—the characteristic fragrance of the plant from which it is derived. The term essential used here does not mean indispensable as with the terms essential amino acid or essential fatty acid which are so called since they are nutritionally required by a given living organism.
There are a lot of alternative medicine practitioners who deliberately take advantage of the misleading name “essential oils”. While some essential oils do indeed have health benefits, most of them don’t do anything at all and some of them can actually be harmful.
5. If you use Amazon, make sure to shop from smile.amazon.com.
You pick an organization (such as the ACLU) and they will donate a percentage of your purchase to them.You’re shopping there anyways. Just use a different URL.
