An elephant doesn’t forget… how to climb a fence: Animals have learned how to avoid barbed wire and even electric shocks
Nellie the elephant steps over a barbed wire fence, knowing one false move could result in big trouble.
The African elephant acrobatically avoids trampling on the fence despite its huge frame and trunk.
A second elephant was also caught stepping over a electric fence near the Kruger National Park in South Africa

This was a posed photo - we did not go over the fence.
Being Wrong Versus Being Confused
Cultural issues related to wrong choices
An example of being wrong might be if you purchased a large top load clothes washing machine that did not fit in the space that a traditional front loading washer would have fit. Using the same example, being confused would be if you did not understand the differences between the two types of washers in terms of benefits, water consumption rates, and so on. The result typically is you postpone the decision.
Postponing a decision from being confused reduces the risk and possibly the embarrassment of making a mistake but it also can mean missing the opportunity to have gained. Both involve risks. Different cultures approach risk in different ways
Just one more night and the battle begins, for one of the awaited boxing match in the year. Manny “The Pacman” Pacquaio versus Ricky “The Hitman” Hatton. This fight looks like both Manny and Ricky are very prepared and neither would want to go down. They have trained very hard for months and now it's almost time to show who had their trainings worth.
Apple Versus Android Security
Online security has always been a big issue, and while mobile devices have been relatively immune to viruses and malware in general, the widespread use of these devices have made them prone to the attacks of unscrupulous individuals and groups. In the world of desktop and laptop computers, it is generally accepted that Windows is the weakest. That is also mainly due to the number of its users.
In the mobile arena, we have two main players, Apple iOS and Android. Which one is better when it comes to security?

Time Management Versus Life Management
When most people say that they want to improve their time management, what they are really saying is that they want to improve their life management. By this I mean that for most people it isn´t just a case of how to best organise the tasks they have to complete. Most of us find ourselves in a more complex situation with multiple demands that go beyond the number of hours that there are in the day and with conflicts of motivation that affect our focus and effectiveness. It is one thing knowing what you should do; it is another actually feeling enthusiasm about it and doing it.
Therefore, we need the next generation time management approach, which is life management. Life management is the intelligent response to multiple choices, demands and your motivation that enables you to take control of your life.
So, if time management is simply organising well your time and tasks; how does life management differ from this?
What is the Deal with Computer Addiction?
You have just spent all of the hours you needed for sleep on the Internet. Your body is crying for sleep but you still wonder if you got any reaction from your followers about your latest post or tweet. You have to check your email one last time, too. Welcome to the world of a computer addict.
I have to admit, when I started blogging, a post about the proper position while using the restroom was not on my list to write!
Are children still taught proper manners and etiquette?http://wakeupamericamybeautiful.blogspot.com/2012/10/manners.html
Improper advertising placement
The kids can be forgiven, but their parents cannot. Improper behavior at pro games is often fueled by alcohol and crowd psychology. The “adults” then bring that same sad act to the youth sports events that their children are participating in, and those children learn from their parents how to act.
Gone are the days you remember when you and all the other kids in the neighborhood gathered at the local playground and played until the streetlights came on.
How to Deter Online Image Theft
Today I'm probably sharing one of the most innovative ways of deterring online image theft that keeps our online photographs linked to our identity and our ownership! What if that watermarked photograph on your blog was pinned and repined, stripped of all it's meta data and shared on twitter and facebook. Then downloaded by someone, your watermark cropped away and uploaded back on to the web again for the whole sharing process to start all over again.

My husband drives an hour each way to his office. It’s not just the office that is far away. Except for the post office and the elementary school, there is nothing closer than 40 minutes from our home.
In the past year, I’ve learned to love the boonies. Living in the country, with acreage for the kids to roam and explore, has lots of benefits. It’s the way my husband grew up and he loved it . I think his work ethic, creativity, intelligence and good health are at least due in part to his growing up in the sticks.
Our kids don’t watch TV or play video games (though they do watch DVDs on the computer sometimes). They climb trees, build forts, grow vegetables, build animal traps, hunt bears (especially the 4-year-old), and let their imaginations run wild. We breathe fresh air, eat fresh chicken eggs, and enjoy a large garden’s produce most of the year.
