FAVE! DATELINE: My kid will never do that

Dateline has this awesome hidden camera segment which I really find interesting and amusing, it’s a series called “My kid will never do that”. In this series there is a set scenario for kids where their values formation and critical thinking will be tested by using hidden cameras to record their actions. While their own parents and some child behavior experts analyze the child’s choices about a number of things like cheating, stranger danger and discrimination.

Here's one of my fave episode, DATELINE: My kid will never do that

Each and everyday parents try to instil to their kids the right values and choices in life but until that value is tested out there in real life, there is no saying what the kid’s reactions will be. Most parents passionately believe that they are teaching the right thing to their kids but the reality is, it’s hard to tell if the kid is really grasping the values that parents are instilling on them.

People are starting to share their sweet thoughts online, friends are already giving out dating advice to girl friends and people are posting early valentines hint on social media sites such as Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Google Plus, and Instagram and so on.

A lot of different personalities will pop up during this very romantic day, rants will be posted on Facebook, dates will be posted on Twitter and date food photos will be pinned on Pinterest as well.

WILDCARD! Home Remedies for Dandruff

Stop Scratching that Dandruff
Besides the fact that it will greatly wound your scalp, you are merely dispersing your dandruff to your shoulders, sleeves and basically all over your head if you continue scratching them. If you break the skin on your scalp, it will even get irritated with medicated shampoo and can even cause hair fall.

Wash your hair regularly with mild shampoo. 
I would recommend that you wash your hair everyday with a dandruff shampoo until you feel that the flaking of the scalp skin subsides. However, be wary that excessive shampooing can really dry out a scalp, and might even cause more dandruff.

Let's Turn the Table (January)

Trolls seem to be so fearless in sites such as Youtube. These people love to criticize and malign other people by posting negative and offensive comments which often times lack the linguistic sophistication. They are so blunt, obnoxious, rude and fearless because they do these criticisms behind their computer desks, which give them the anonymity protection that they need. This linguistic troll problem is so prevalent these days that I am making a monthly list of these Youtube comments so as to perhaps shed some light on the most common misused, misspelled and abused words online. Here are some:

Before you call someone “EVIL”, first make sure you know the proper spelling of pageant.
