I am not sure how people survived the 1918-1919 influenza pandemic without an on-demand source for music, video, and book streaming.  It seems that my interest in audiobooks has drastically expanded, as has my interest in binging episodes of new and old programs.  Despite the increased streaming, the remaining moments of my free time have been devoted to comfort tracks/albums.  Even though listening with on-ear, over-ear, or in-ear headphone systems

The STEM acronym has become the en vogue educational word over the past two decades.  Schools and extracurricular activities have utilized this term to attract students and parents interested in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and technology.  Even though the idea was not new, the acronym was changed from SMET to STEM in 2001

Even though we all make earwax (cerumen), very few seem to know what it is, why we have it, and most importantly, to leave it alone in most cases.  Some may have wet wax or dry wax, some produce very little and others, like me, seem to make more than their fair share.  Few may know that the ears are self-cleaning, Earbud Cleaning Pen REVIEW

As a parent, birthdays and holiday shopping often represent a new level of struggle.  I do not feel that monetary gifts satisfy the spirit of giving and would prefer to find a thoughtful/memorable gift, despite the requests of my older children.  My wife and I are tired of junk, doodads, odds-and-ends, and things that simply take up space.

Turn Practice Time Into Game Time! Is there anything more American than baseball? Even though many credit Abner Doubleday as the founder of the game, history.com and NBC Sports (https://mlb.nbcsports.com/2020/04/02/today-in-baseball-history-a-lie-about-how-baseball-was-invented-is-born/) provided a more accurate origin story for the American pastime. It was thought to have originated from a merger of children’s game called Rounders, and the very British game of Cricket, which were played throughout schoolyards and college campuses until the Knickerbocker Baseball Club played the first official game in 1846. The rest is history. However fascinating the game history may be, the evolution of the ball merits discussion as…

BUY FROM AMAZON As life throws curveballs, let a Catalayst tip the equation in your favor As I await the launch of the latest iPhone each September, I look to my favorite case companies to protect my investment. Even though many of the service providers have trade-up and trade-in opportunities, the prices of the newest devices can remain a bit obscene. In addition, I have never understood those who carry their naked phones in a back/front pocket or who toss a device into a phone or bag. Personally, I am quite a bit more risk-averse. Instead, I err on the…

Be the party, Bring the Fun When it comes to backpacks, you can choose a boring mass-produced bag, or you can have a truly unique experience. I have used a variety of hiking/camping bags, water bladder bags, book bags, tech bags, solar charging bags, battery backup bags, and have enjoyed several of the features of each bag. Like Tony Stark choosing one of the suits from the Hall of Armor, different bags may provide advantages in some environments, while a few may excel in others. Thus, I was truly excited to hear about a Kickstarter campaign that featured the waterproof,…

Enjoy a bit of style while you Game, Work, and Play. I grew up alongside the Xennials through the ’80s and ’90s. During this time, my mother worked several jobs, learned several skills, and promoted typing as one of those “must-have skills.” By the time I took typing in middle school, I was already well ahead of many of my peers. In fact, my mother sublet my skills throughout late middle/early high school to complete dictation. I was able to earn a little extra coin, while also enhancing my skill at keyboarding. Since that time, I have developed a…
