Something You Should Know

You may have heard the advice to not allow your gas tank to get too low before refueling. Is that really necessary? What’s the harm if you let it go to E? And can’t you just go by the thing on your dashboard that tells you how many miles until empty? This episode begins with an important explanation. https://www.bostonherald.com/2021/07/27/2386931/ Do you have things in your home you never use? Who doesn’t? Clothes, appliances, books you will never read, and the list goes on. You probably even have boxes of things and you don’t even remember what’s inside those boxes. Getting rid of old stuff is hard for many of us – even if we never plan to use it. It turns out though, that if you could just get started you will likely find the experience rather satisfying according to Matt Paxton. Matt has spent over 20 years helping people confront their stuff. He was a featured cleaner on the TV show Hoarders and hosts the PBS series “Legacy List with Matt Paxton”. Matt is also author of the book Keep the Memories Lose the Stuff (https://amzn.to/3tWDiyj). Listen as he joins me to offer some great advice. We all experience the passage of time. Yet how we measure time has changed a lot. For most of human history, knowing the precise time wasn’t all that that important. Today however, we use amazingly sophisticated instruments to keep very precise time all around the world. It is an absolute necessity. Joining me to explain why and discuss the fascinating story of how we keep time is Chad Orzel. He is an associate professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Union College in Schenectady, NY and author of the book A Brief History of Timekeeping: The Science of Marking Time, from Stonehenge to Atomic Clocks (https://amzn.to/3H9lVOI) Sometimes when you look at the front of a car, it seems to resemble a human face which sort of gives it a sense of personality. Some cars look happy while other cars have a more serious - almost intimidating or aggressive “faces.” You may have wondered if that was intentional or just a coincidence? Listen as I give you the explanation. http://www.fsu.edu/news/2008/11/26/car.personality/ PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS!
