Sometimes, it is difficult to find your father a Father’s Day gift. Men are usually difficult to buy for because they are so bad at communication. You certainly don’t want to buy him the same thing as last year or his last birthday. You also want to get him something that he will use or enjoy. It all depends on what your father likes to do.

If he likes comics, he may want a toolset that is called the Marvel Thor Hammer Tool Set. He may like to do things outside in the hot sun. You could get him some Ray-Ban Sunglasses. If he likes to work out, you could get him the Tangram Smart Rope. If he likes to cook, there is a set to make your own hot sauce.

Father's Day is a national event or is at least advertised as one. But, the sad fact is, many people have fathers who weren't active parts of their lives. Statistics prove as much, especially in the United States where the special day originated.

It is said that a group of church women took mother's day cards into prison and so many wanted them to send to their mother, they ran out. So, they stocked up for father's day and went back. Only a few wanted them. That tells you that those who don't have active fathers in their lives can easily have problems that land them in trouble, like a prison. That is why father's day isn't celebrated by many - many have fathers they don't feel deserve a card.

Are you the one who can’t think of a single day without eating your favorite chocolate? Do you love to have a red velvet pastry after dinner on a daily basis? Well, for now, you have to think twice before eating your favorite dessert frequently. Shocked? Let me clarify this in detail.

Regular eating of desserts not only opens the door of various dental problems, but it also deteriorates your overall health. It is simply because desserts contain sugars and regular consumption of sugar is not healthy (in fact poisonous) for our bones (according to recent research). I am also not saying that you should totally avoid sugar consumption. It’s just consumption of anything may lead to disaster.

Here are some of the detrimental effects of eating too much desserts:

  • Dental problems: Sugar-containing eatable items are chewed less and sucked more. As a result, your teeth will flow in sugar endlessly for a long time. Sugar also invites multiple bacteria towards it which is a major cause of endless dental problems.

  • Liver problems arise: Once sugar enters the bloodstream, it goes to the liver for getting broken down. An excessive amount of sugar needs to over processing of liver that may lead to fatty liver diseases.

  • The heart gets also affected: Sugar also affects the blood circulation of your body, resulting in cholesterol problems, increasing insulin and glucose level, and sometimes heart failure.

  • Other health-problems: Your skin will eventually get premature wrinkles, dark circles, and pimples on your face as too much sugar ages the cells.

In simple words, the answer is no. You should not eat desserts on a daily basis.

One year has approximatly 52 weeks. One calendar common year has 365 days: 1 common year = 365 days = (365 days) / (7 days/week) = 52.143 weeks = 52 weeks + 1 day. One calendar leap year occures every 4 years, except for years that are divisable by 100 and not divisable by 400.

One calendar leap year has 366 days, when February has 29 days: 1 leap year = 366 days = (366 days) / (7 days/week) = 52.286 weeks = 52 weeks + 2 days. This is viable to anyone, thus we can calculate easily the days, hours, weeks, seconds, and etc.

This is a natural phenomenon also known as Contagious Yawning. Certain psychologists and biologists have studied this and they believe there are some specific factors that could be responsible for this and they're clearly not tiredness, sleepiness or empathy. It's not even infection as even reading the word "Yawn" will make you yawn often, It is common amongst almost half of the young generation, except children below 10 years of age.

According to a survey, contagious yawning has been observed more in humans and chimpanzees than any other being. Even whilst reading this answer, you might have yawned a few times. Age is the most important factor/predictor in this as the only specific age group is affected by this the most. On the other hand, spontaneous yawning is different and occurs due to boredom, tiredness or if you need some sleep.

The conclusion is that more deep research and study is needed to find a more acceptable answer to this Unsolved mystery.

Hug and Embrace are two action words. It will be very difficult to figure out the differences between the two words if you do not have an understanding of the usage of the words. Hug and embrace have almost the same meaning. Hug simply means to cling so tightly with someone, especially in the arms. This is a particular way of showing affection to someone.

Embrace also has the same meaning as a hug. For example, John hugged/embraced Esther until he felt better. The major difference between hug and embrace will be discussed in relation to how they are used in a sentence. A hug is most times used as a verb, but it can also be used as a noun, for example, I'm looking for someone who will give me a hug. Embrace, on the other hand, can also be used as a verb and also, as a noun. Aside from, embrace has other meanings. It can be used to show that you are in support of someone's idea. For example, I embraced Paul's idea because it looked good to me.

SMS is the abbreviation for Short Message Service. SMS is something you don't have to go far before enjoying its service, you can easily see it on your mobile phones and make use of it. It is a text-messaging service that allows you to send short messages between two devices. The idea of using SMS provides you the opportunity to convey effectively information to a receiver without being charged more.

When using SMS, you don't need to be connected to the internet because it is not like those online messaging apps like whatsapp and facebook that need data connection before they can be used. What SMS requires is only a strong network so as to deliver the message in a timely manner. SMS messages are stored in the SMS center temporarily in case they are not delivered or the recipient mobile phone is unavailable. And you can also set an expiry date after which a message temporarily kept in the SMS center would be deleted.

The worst Star Trek movie is Into the Darkness. It was lame and that's a fact. It was poorly put together and it obviously did not show appreciation for Star Trek fans and was like a slap in the face to us. Although some did like it, it was not well recieved by those who have been following Star Trek all these years. You would think it would have been the best one, and it should have been...but, clearly it was not. it was an insult. I, unlike most, didn't care for Beyond either. I felt it could have utilized the budget much better and that some of the scenes were expected and predictable, nothing of interest and it was hyped up way too much just as Into the Darkness was.

I, however, am not the authority on the subject but I think many true Star Trek fans share my thoughts here. The best one, in my opinion, was The Wrath of Khan. I felt it was great but it wasn't the most popular by any stretch of the imagination. Perhaps, that is what I like most about it and disliked about others. So, to each his or her own, I assume.

There is no big difference between Tuxedo and suit. The two types of wears are designed in a way that you would think they are the same when you look from afar. I think we are all familiar with Tuxedos and suits. The major difference between the two is how they are designed and the traditional or common ways people wear the two. The presence of satin in Tuxedo is what actually differentiates it from suit.

In Tuxedos, you will see satin facing on the button, pocket trim, lapels and in the leg of the trousers, you would see a stripe of a well-layered satin. Another difference is how people wear the two. Suits are traditionally worn with long ties while Tuxedos are worn with bow ties. You use the ties depending on your choice. This does not mean you can not wear bow ties on suits or long ties on Tuxedo. Another thing is suits are more common to see on people but Tuxedo is used for rare occasions.

It is definitely not safe for women to travel alone in Sri Lanka. To do so would be stupid, actually. It isn't even safe for groups of people to travel in Sri Lanka at present so for anyone, especially a woman, to travel alone would not be advised. Warnings have been issued about traveling to the country in general.

Some people ignore the warnings and travel there anyway but they could be in grave danger as terrorism is on the rise there and is a concern of safety. Women have issues in the country as far as safety goes even when terrorism isn't a part of the picture so now that it is a problem, don't travel alone there if you are a female of any age.
