The Deep, Now On Netflix!

Currently the #1 animated series on UK’s CBBC, and the #1 animated show in Australia across all networks, the second season of the animated series The Deep made its U.S. premiere on Netflix this Friday, September 22nd. Season One is currently airing weeknights on Universal Kids at 7:30pm EST. Based on a beloved graphic novel series written by best-selling DC and Marvel comics writer Tom Taylor who wanted to write something he could share with his own children, The Deep is a wonderful family-friendly show that appeals to both kids and parents alike. The show follows a multi-cultural family and their adventures and highlights non-violent conflict resolution. The fan-favorite series features the recognizable voice talents of Ashleigh Ball, Vincent Tong, Kathleen Barr, and Michael Dobson.
The Deep follows the Nekton family - a brilliant team of underwater explorers. With state-of-the-art technology and an unquenchable thirst for discovery, the Nektons explore the mysterious depths of the ocean, where most of our world lies unexplored and unexplained. While others look up to the stars, this family knows that an infinite number of things shine brightly in the darkness below. The deep is a place where leviathans swim through sunken cities, where pirates lurk amidst floating black markets, and where a mysterious group of Guardians hide long lost secrets. The Deep is adapted from the Aurealis Award-winning graphic novel series by #1 New York Times bestselling writer Tom Taylor (Injustice 2, Injustice: Gods Among Us, Earth 2,Superior Iron Man, Star Wars: Blood Ties), and illustrated by James Brouwer (Justice League Beyond). Taylor serves as co-creator and lead writer of the series and Brouwer serves as co-creator and art director.

Why And How You Should Quit Smoking Today!

When medical experts and general public talk about vices smoking is often omitted. This is due to the fact that we tend to focus on alcohol, drugs, gambling and other issues that a modern man has.

In all of that, we tend to neglect smoking thinking that this is a benign vice and that there aren’t many repercussions for doing it. This is completely inaccurate.

Smoking can be life threatening as any other addiction. The main issue is that effects are not so obvious to a common viewer although all of us are enveloped in cigarette smoke when there is a smoker nearby. Nevertheless, it isn’t something that should be taken lightly and if possible, you should deal with it in near future.

This is why I’ve made a list of different useful tricks and steps that can help you finally overcome the issue.

1. Proper planning
Like with any other vice it is necessary to create a proper plan. Just saying “I’m not going to smoke anymore” won’t get you anywhere. Of course, there are some people who can pull it off but it is harder way to do it. Instead you need to create a situation where quitting is easy be putting in place various activities and limiting some stuff that were normal until now.

2. Mental strength
However, even before you can do anything, you need to ask yourself if you’re up to the task. Depression and bad mood can affect the whole process making it that much harder. Also have in mind that smokers commonly use nicotine as a way to relieve stress. So, if there is some issue in your life, it is much better to fix it before you fully dedicate yourself to the program.

3. Removing things that remind you of cigarettes and tobacco
As time goes by cigarettes become integral part of our life. We start creating our own rituals and habits. In fact, there are certain activities and situations where we simply need to light one. You need to remove or reduce all these things that cause issues. Always remember that easiest way to relapse is by constantly remembering cigarettes. If you manage to forget them, there is a much higher chance you will succeed.

4. Substitutions
If you were a smoker for a longer period of time, it might be hard to complete eliminate cigarettes overnight. This is why electronic cigarettes exist. Electronic cigarettes or e-cigarettes use vape-juice; substance meant to replace nicotine. The very fact you made this switch will make you healthier. Still, you shouldn’t stop there are you should try to eliminate even e-cigarettes one day.

5. Get a money jar
One of the biggest issues when you quit smoking is the fact that you eliminated something that brought you pleasure. Even though this is bad for your health, you felt good with cigarettes. In order to get mental replacement and to further motivate yourself, you should get a jar where you will place all the money you saved on cigarettes. First, this will show you the actual savings. Second, you can use this money to find some other fulfilling hobby or activity.

6. Punishment treatment
This trick is similar to money jar although it works in reverse. Whenever you relapse, you need to find a way to punish yourself. This should be some smaller limitation such as skipping dinner, not being able to watch favorite series or not being able to eat cookies. As a result, this day will stick in your memory and will associate you of negative things. In fact, the worse this day is, the bigger mental “scar” it will leave. After a while you will start seeing cigarettes as a negative thing.

7. Get a puppy/kitten
Chance of relapsing increases with the number of times we recall cigarettes during the day. This is precisely why you need to do something that will occupy your attention and thoughts. Getting a small puppy or a kitten is precisely the thing. This way, you will have your hands full during upcoming period and you will also have to dedicate a lot of time to various trainings. Needless to say, don’t get a puppy just so you can quit smoking; get puppy/kitten only if you really love them and are willing to take care of them afterwards.

Fall Beauty Must-Haves

Monday, September 25 Is Math Storytelling Day!

Do you know how many spokes are on the crown of the Statue of Liberty and what that number represents? There are seven, representing the seven seas and seven continents. The single torch represents unity – just like the Olympic flame symbolizes that same global oneness. Collectively, these numbers tell the story of people from around the world coming together to the United States – immigration!
The four-color theorem states that all maps can be colored with only 4 colors so that no two adjacent pieces are the same color – but it’s more fun when you rhyme it, like this:
How many colors must you take
For any map you wanna’ make
How many colors
So in your sight
No two neighbors are alike?
...4!
What’s up with the importance given to the number 9? It is likely that, since it is the largest single digit number, 9 has historically been used to say that something is “the most” – which is usually something great – and magical! For example – If you “dress to the 9s” and “go the whole 9 yards,” you will probably end up feeling like you’re “on Cloud 9!” And maybe while you’re up on Cloud 9 you’ll see your cat, who has 9 lives, and ask that wise old cat why “a stitch in time saves 9”?
Contemporary numerals we use today are often known as Arabic numerals. Do you know why we use these rather than other ancient systems such as Roman numerals? Most historians believe the current global number system, which has become known as the Hindu-Arabic number system, and the origin of a place-value zero (0), came from India and were brought to Europe by Arab traders.
Did you watch the meetings of world leaders at the United Nations this week? Do you know how many official languages are represented at the UN? There are 6. Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish. These languages represent the five languages of the original member nations. Arabic was added later by popular request.
From Dr. Rebecca Klemm, “The Numbers Lady”
After receiving her Ph.D. in Statistics and after more than thirty years of working with and teaching about numbers, Dr. Rebecca Klemm, The Numbers Lady, founded NumbersAlive! as an innovative framework for demystifying numbers and math. Students of all ages join the inquisitive numeric characters – plush toys, puppets, and animated characters – as they explore the relevance of mathematical concepts worldwide.

Halloween And Pets: Frightfully Good Tips On How To Keep Them Safe And Happy by Charlotte Meier

With Halloween just around the corner, it’s time to think about the best ways to keep your pets safe and happy, especially if he’s nervous around strangers. For many families, this time of year is one of the most fun, with pumpkin patch afternoons and evenings by the fire with a mug of hot cider. When it’s time for trick-or-treating, it’s important to keep in mind that many pets who may ordinarily be very outgoing can become nervous or anxious when lots of new people are walking through the neighborhood, and costumes with masks might be confusing or scary. If the evening will be too much for your pet, consider letting him hang out in a kennel or in a room away from windows and doors, or ask a friend or family member to spend some time with him to help him stay calm.

While some people allow their dogs to sit outside during this time, it might be a good idea to let him stay in the house, away from the crowd. It can be helpful to pull up a chair for yourself, however, and hand out candy on the porch or on the front lawn, as this keeps trick-or-treaters from coming up and ringing the doorbell.

Candy is another concern for pets, especially dogs. If your pup is curious about people-food, keep the Halloween treats in a bowl with a lid on a high space so he can’t get to them. Be sure to talk to your family members, especially young children, about not giving the dog any candy and let them know that chocolate is dangerous for dogs. If you believe your dog has ingested chocolate or any other candy, call the ASPCA Poison Control Center right away at 1-(888)-426-4435. For a list of symptoms your pet may exhibit after ingesting chocolate, read Rover’s helpful guide.

When it comes to pet costumes, it’s important to think of them the same way you would think of an outfit you’re putting on a small child. Does it restrict movement or breathing? Are there small buttons or threads that could present choking hazards if chewed off? Are there elements that could choke your pet if the costume gets caught on something? It’s generally a good idea to try on any costumes for your pet before the big night to make sure it fits well and that he will tolerate having it on. Remember not to force anything, as this will make for a pretty unhappy pup.

One of the most dangerous aspects about Halloween for pets is something that many of us enjoy without much thought: candlelight. Most jack-o-lanterns have candles inside them, and many homeowners use them to illuminate walkways and foyers for a creepy atmosphere. For pets, however, this lovely lighting can be a problem if they walk too close or accidentally knock it over, so be sure you keep open flames up and out of the way of your pet. For more potential hazards, read on here.

If you own a cat - especially a black cat - and he spends time outside, consider keeping him in for the week of Halloween. Kitties - even those with collars--are often targets for well-meaning kids who want a classic Halloween cat to take home, or pranksters who have a more sinister agenda in mind.

It’s also a good idea to keep fall plants out of your pet’s reach. They may look harmless, but many types of plants are either poisonous or simply create gastrointestinal problems for dogs. Keep your pup safe by putting any item you’re unsure about up off the floor.

Halloween is a fun time of year, and your pet can join in as long as you have a good plan in place for keeping him safe. Make sure he has a collar with an updated ID tag on it at all times; even if he’s an indoor pet, the barrage of trick-or-treaters may create a distraction that allows him to escape. With a little preparation, you and your pet can have a great Halloween.
