Buying the Right Table Saw for You

By Ron Pawlowski The table saw is the heart of any workshop. Purchasing the right table saw is critical as it will affect the quality of your work, your productivity and the limits of what you can actually build in your shop.Table saws come in four categories and I'll explain each one and outline the pros and cons of each one. The table saw you ultimately purchase will be largely influenced by your budget, this space you have available and in some cases the actual type of floor that you will be working on.Portable Table Saw ($150 to $300)Portal table saws are the most popular selections in most home workshops because of their cost, weight and size. These models can be installed directly onto a workbench or a floor stand. They're easy to handle, transport and move around the shop. Some woodworkers with tight spaces will actually stow them away under their benches, in a corner or even in a closet. Although these table saws offer low cost and portability these saws have several …

How to Choose a Pair of Headphones That's Perfect for You

By Mia Kulyabina Headphones come in many shapes and sizes, from small and portable, to huge and clunky. But most people nowadays will probably only own the set of earbuds that came with their cell phones. They may be fine for a while, but they're usually only good for making hands-free calls on your phone. Sound quality is often not their strong point. They will probably not be great for using in the office or while gaming either, so you should probably consider buying something better.So many choicesFor a first-time headphone buyer, the choices can be daunting. If you only need headphones for one specific purpose, the choice is fairly simple. With an unlimited budget, you can even buy a specialist set for each different purpose. But seeing as most people don't have that luxury, it makes more sense to buy something fairly versatile, that works best for the purpose you use it for most.It can take many pages of writing to explain all the different specifications that headphones…

The Passive Income Myth

By Gregory Anne Cox According to the IRS there are three categories of income: Active, passive, and portfolio.Active is what it sounds like. You do income-producing activities that you get income.Portfolio is also what it sounds like. You invest money into things like stocks, real estate funds, or other investment vehicles and - in the best of times - your investment yields gains, or income.Then there is passive income.The sacred cow of network marketing companies and continuity/membership site experts.The goal of every over-worked, under-earning, praying-for-a-miracle self-employed type.Passive intimates no work. You, on the beach, cocktail in hand, checking your PayPal account for the sales every few hours. Or, better yet, you, on your couch, in your jammies, binge watching GOT or House. Again.I googled a ton of content on passive income and although there are some sound possibilities out there - lend money for interest for instance - many take a sound idea and run it right off the…

Long-Term Health Consequences of Alcohol We Must Know

By Barbara Odozi Alex was a man his family admired and friends envied. He had a great job, loving family, extensive social circle and investments here and there. Unfortunately, he was also heavily into drinking. But his habits rarely bothered anyone as he was a star performer at work. At home too, he devoted time and rarely got disoriented until one day when he was pronounced dead due to stroke.Long-term alcohol consumption is associated with a host of adverse health outcomes like:Brain disruptions - Even occasional drinking can disturb the balance of neurotransmitters in the brain, causing delay in transmitting the signals due to which one may feel drowsy.

The Specific Heat of Humans

By Elizabeth Anne Williams Pancake is to waffle as man is to aluminum? Well, yes, actually. Pancakes and waffles have lots in common and as it turns out, so do metals and humans too! What is this shared value? Specific heat! Remember back to high school chemistry class when we would set fire to different metal objects and then measure just how fast or slow the object would heat up and cool down? This value would vary drastically by metal. As a refresher, aluminum foil, just like what you use in your kitchen, heats up very quickly and also cools down very quickly. Aluminum is very different from iron, which on the contrary is slow to increase in temperature and likewise slow to cool off.When it comes to emotions, humans have their own unique specific heat value too. Some of us get 'heated' (see what I did there?) rapidly and then calm down quickly but others exhibit remarkable patience up until a point and then get very heated and take a considerable amount of time to cool off…
