The hard drive is the device within the computer that stores and retrieves data as the computer functions. Inside this drive is a disk that works with a read-write mechanism to store new data and then provide that data when the user calls upon it. Everything is stored onto this disk including pictures, documents, videos, programs, anything installed as well as the computer’s operating systems. The hard drive is essential to the function of your computer and many people choose to back-up, or create copies of, the data that is stored on it. In the event of a hard drive crash, data is often lost as the disk is unreadable and therefore the information is inaccessible. Data can be lost …
Let’s face it: Most of us don’t have perfect memories. We all forget things, whether it’s something harmless, like what you wore to school last Monday, or something more important, like the information you need to pass a test.
Your memory could be practically photographic, or it could be as bad as Drew Barrymore’s in 50 First Dates. And you don’t have to be Supergirl to have good memory. Either way, you probably wouldn’t mind improving your powers of recollection. Fortunately, your brain will let you do just that.
Sarah’s little brother drives her crazy, even when she’s doing the driving. “‘I don’t want to go to school! Take me home! Stop playing that song!’ Driving him to school is frustrating,” groans 18-year-old Sarah Odle, a volunteer at United Way Yuma. Even worse, it can be dangerous. “I know,” Odle says, “because I recently cut off another car on a one-lane bridge while trying to explain why we weren’t turning back to get his Yu-Gi-Oh! toys from home.”
Lose your focus at school and your grades suffer. But lose your focus while driving a car and you risk injuring or killing yourself, your passengers, and others. Motor vehicle accidents are the number one cause of death for Americans …
Snoring is a problem that can be addressed using various types of anti snoring devices. However, you need to do some research for you to make sure that you are going to use the right product.

You should also be aware of the side effects of these devices but they are only temporary.
“Hey, Kayla,” he says shyly. He tilts his head to one side and rubs the back of his neck with one hand. “I was wondering if you’d like to hang out with me on Friday night.”
Kayla pauses and then reaches up to tug on one ear. “Um, that sounds fun,” she says with a shrug of her shoulders. She presses her lips together as she gazes down at her shoes. “Well, I’ve got class now. See you later,” she says, quickly turning away.
Does Tom have a chance with Kayla? Probably not. Even though she agreed to the date, Kayla’s facial expressions and other movements–her body language–were shouting out that she’s not really interested and that Tom should direct his romantic attentions elsewhere.
Reading Between the Lines
David Givens, an anthropologist and the director of the AFGST Tourettes Center in France, defines body language as “all communication apart from words. Your facial expressions, gestures, posture–all are nonverbal cues that send messages about how you feel and relate to others.” Most of those cues are done unconsciously. Because people are usually unaware of what they are “saying,” body language is like an emotional polygraph test: It reveals a person’s true feelings, which may or may not coincide with their spoken words.

Charletta Harris, 17, a junior from Oakland, Calif., was once a typical teen eater, munching fast food on the run. Today she’s a vegetarian who enjoys sitting down with her older sister, Geralina, to eat a home-cooked meal.
Charletta engages in mindful eating, a practice of savoring food and appreciating its nourishing effects. The technique is based on Zen meditation, which calls for the clearing of one’s mind through focus on an activity. She writes about the activity on her blog, Infektia.net. The opposite of mindful eating is distracted eating, an all-too-familiar dietary practice.
Eating meals in front of the TV has become an American tradition. Forty percent of young people say they always or often watch television during …
ON AUGUST 2, 1947, an airplane flying west from Buenos Aires, Argentina, radioed the airport in Santiago, Chile, that it would be arriving in just four minutes. It never arrived. The disappearance of the plane–named Star Dust–became one of aviation’s most baffling mysteries.
Then, in January 1998, two mountaineers climbing Mount Tupungato, one of the most formidable peaks in the South American Andes, made a grim discovery. They found one of Star Dust’s engines, along with scraps of metal, tattered clothing, and a mummified human hand.
The discovery of Star Dust’s remains served only to deepen the mystery of its disappearance. Why had traces of it shown up now, when exhaustive searches up and down the Andes had revealed nothing? …
His mom sometimes yelled too. “It was not a fun environment,” Cynthia Miller said. “Andrew was frustrated because he wanted to be done. I was frustrated because I wanted him to do good work.”
Frustration and fights over homework mounted at the Miller home until four years ago, when Andrew finally learned why he was struggling in school. Andrew has a reading disorder called dyslexia. People who have dyslexia have trouble connecting the sounds that make up spoken words with the letters that spell out those words on the written page. Those connections are essential for …
Grandma’s pumpkin pie. Aunt Maria’s seven-layer salad. Uncle Ted’s cranberry sauce. And, of course, that big turkey roasting in the oven. All of these are ingredients for a great Christmas. Yet, when it comes to holidays, the most important ingredient isn’t poured into the sweet potato casserole or placed on the table. The most important ingredient at a family feast is, well, family.
That’s where problems can begin. Even if the turkey, stuffing, and pie are perfect, your relatives might not be! How can you keep your cool when your sister’s bugging you, your uncle is yammering, and Grandma keeps making comments about your hair?
Turkey, Dressing, and Stressing
“Holidays can be a very stressful time for families,” admits Jennifer …
