Just a Good Deed

This morning, around 1:00AM, I was getting gas on gayley, and a homeless guy approached me seeking for some change. I only had a twenty, so I told him I would go to the store, buy something, and give him a dollar or two. While I was walking towards it, I thought why don’t I just also buy something for him. He told me there isn’t something in that store he needs, but he needs to buy hot soup for him and his wife at Ralphs. I offered to drive him to Ralph and buy soup with him instead.

So on the car we had a good chat. We talked a bit about the government, people, annoying paperworks, geeks and the Geek Squad. Tony is homeless for awhile because he didn’t get the paperwork in, and so the government canceled his welfare until next month. Long time ago he used to be a factory worker in a chemical factory, and he accidentally got hurt, and since then had no ability to do good work. I asked him if he had hobbies if he was able to have any, and he said, “not really, maybe crossword puzzles.”

When we got to Ralphs, since it was so late, there were no hot soup. I then offered to buy him a whole roasted chicken. He was ultra-grateful and thanked me continuously. I told him the truth, that it was simply from the mercy of the Lord. I then offered to have him and his wife drop by my place some time so I can make some food to eat together. He liked the idea, but he said he can’t make a decision for both him and his wife, hence he cannot say yes to it. I told him I respect his care for his wife’s opinion.

Afterwards, he thanked me and told me he didn’t want to trouble me anymore. I told him to take a good rest because it is late at night, and make sure he doesn’t rest hungrily. He said that whenever I see him around, stop by because he wants to somehow pay me back if he could. I told him not to worry about it.

Anyway, I’m telling this not because I want to let people know that behind the craziness, I’m a pretty nice guy, but just to express that there are too little events like these that occur in society. I figured that $8 to me is worth A LOT less than $8 to this guy, and I thought it was an overall gain in the transaction. I know a lot of these homeless people choose to be like that, and buy drugs with new money, but there are poor fellas who just ended in a bad place due to bad luck. I am not asking people to sacrifice that extra boba, starbucks, or jamba juice money to the homeless people, but simply to be kind and express care. I think talking to them like a real person and expressing care is more valuable to these people than a couple quarters.

Chinese Accounting Firm Names

So the big four accounting firms have long names like PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu and such, and the reason for that is that accounting firms combine together and form a larger firm, and their original names were often named after the founders’ last names.

If this exact same phenomenon would happen in China, than this dialogue would happen:

“Hey, where do you work at?”
“Oh, I work at Chou Yang & Lee.”
“NO WAY! That’s like, one of the largest firms in China! I only work for Chen Chou Wang…”
“Haha, that’s ok. It’s still a formidible firm.”
“What about me? I work for Liu Lee & Chan.”
“Umm, never heard of that one. Probably sucks.”

How playing online bingo can improve your brain power

Bingo

The Magical Game of Bingo

Do you know that the game of bingo actually goes back several centuries! What more, it’s a form of entertainment that has helped a great multitude of people, from all walks of life, to get through difficult circumstances at various times in the world history. During the times of economic depression, people used to stay entertained by playing bingo at non-operational movie theatres.

Furthermore, it’s a proven and well-documented fact that playing bingo the conventional way or on the internet can help boost brain’s reflexes and activity- whether you are right brained or left brained. In fact, you can go to some no deposit bonus casinos and start playing bingo right away without any money (or real money) on the internet! 

Talking more about the mental benefits of bingo, in the UK, tests have revealed that people who regularly play bingo score significantly higher on the mental ability tests.

You’ll often see these people exhibiting better mental speeds, better memory and better ability of picking information from their surroundings.

Bingo trains your brains!

Research has repeatedly revealed that playing bingo positively impacts the way in which brain processes information. The thinking capacity of humans declines gradually as they age, however studies have found that playing bingo can possibly counter this effect. The stimulation of brain cells caused by the game enables you to easily process and recall the stored information.

Furthermore, if you play the harder versions of the game, for instance 75 ball bingo that features more difficult patterns, it can further improve your mental abilities. Therefore, you might want to switch to the difficult bingo versions that you had been avoiding for so long!

Improves reaction times

Another significant area where bingo can help you get better at is your brain’s reflexes. When you play this game you are required to remember the patterns and numbers within certain time limits. This can improve both the concentration as well as reaction time of your brain. Another similar game that has the same kind of impact is Sudoku.

Prevents cognitive disorders

Another bingo related benefit you should know about is that the mental stimulation caused by this game can help greatly in prevention of cognitive disorders like Alzheimer’s and dementia, at later stages of your life. Playing it regularly or even in short-bursts every now and then can both have a long-term therapeutic effect on your mind.

But please don’t become a bingo addict!

However, please note, these facts aren’t provided to make you start playing bingo at every living moment of your existence! Instead, you can consider playing this game for fun at least couple of times a week! Perhaps you could undergo a memory test before starting playing and then do another test after playing it regularly for a few months!

After all, the best way to know the effectiveness of a method is by trying it first-hand!
