The International Caps Lock Day Is Today

Caps lock is a key on many computer keyboards. Pressing it sets an input mode in which typed letters are uppercase by default (i.e. in All caps). The keyboard remains in caps lock mode until the key is pressed again. On some computers, holding down the shift key while caps lock is on temporarily switches to lowercase.
Keyboards often include a small LED to indicate that caps lock is active—either on the key itself, or in a row with scroll lock and num lock indicators. However, some new laptop and wireless desktop keyboards lack the LED, instead providing software that gives an on-screen indicator.

People typing case-sensitive passwords that are not displayed verbatim on the screen may not realize that caps lock is on, causing errors. Help guides, tech support materials, and sometimes the interface itself may include advice on checking caps lock before typing a password. In Windows login screens, a warning that caps lock is on is shown in a balloon near the field. In Mac OS X, when caps lock is on, a caps lock symbol (⇪) is displayed inside a password field. Operating systems may also provide audible notifications when caps-lock, num-lock, or scroll-lock buttons are toggled.

21 Million Viewers For Wednesday’s ‘American Idol’, Finale A New Low

American Idol finale was the least-watched finale in the show’s history.

The show averaged 21.5 million viewers and was down 27% and 30%, respectively, compared to last-season’s finale in viewers and advertiser-coveted young adults, according to preliminary ratings.

On the positive side for the Fox reality singing competition, the broadcast was the highest-rated entertainment show since the Academy Awards.

The show also easily beat the finale for The Voice, a competitor in the genre. It topped The Voice by 81% in total viewers and 45% in the young-adult demographic.

What Are All The Women Without Curves?

I love how you’re trying to embrace the body you have instead of changing it into something that’s not part of you. Beautiful.

If you’re on the thin side of the ruler — god knows how many models would kill for a body like yours! Get clothes that “belt up” under the bust, clothes that are human shaped (no bag-like clothing or you might look like you’re going to get lost!) Don’t try the revealing tops because that will just emphasize your small chest. Boat-neck tops are always pretty on thin people with angular bones.

If you’re just a ruler because of it — perhaps straight jeans? Or those wide-legged (dress)pants that go straight down, and it doesn’t matter if you don’t have large curves, those pants were made to go straight down. Wear simple clothes, items that have clean cuts and solid shapes to make up for your straight body.

Freedom From Smoking, How To Quit Smoking?

Smoking cessation (colloquially quitting smoking) is the process of discontinuing the practice of inhaling a smoked substance. This article focuses exclusively on cessation of tobacco smoking; however, the methods described may apply to cessation of smoking other substances that can be difficult to stop using due to the development of strong physical substance dependence or psychological dependence (in more common parlance, addiction).

Smoking cessation can be achieved with or without assistance from healthcare professionals or the use of medications. Methods that have been found to be effective include interventions directed at or via health care providers and health care systems; medications including nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) and varenicline; individual and group counselling; and Web-based or stand-alone and computer programs. Although stopping smoking can cause short-term side effects such as reversible weight gain, smoking cessation services and activities are cost-effective because of the positive health benefits.

Why We Lack Hair On our Body?

I just learned that the lack of hair on our body compared to other apes is not because we needed sweat effectively (and thus outrun prey in mid day), not because of our aquatic lifestyle, not even because of sexual selection or a couple of other theories, but most likely because of neoteny, also called juvenilization.
