The innocuous question went viral and sparked a polarising online debate, with Twitter users divided into several parties over the topic: those who stick toothpaste straight onto their dry toothbrushes; those who rinse the brush under the tap beforehand; and those who apply the paste and then wet their brushes.
Books on the list will be accessible to students with a range of reading abilities, and will represent a diversity of characters and experiences. Each spring the students vote, at school or at the public library, for their favorite book from the list. Sponsoring adults collect and submit the votes online through WYLA.org. The committee announces winning titles through the WLA and Wyoming State Literacy Association listservs. Teachers and librarians also share this information directly with students and patrons.
Supporters of wetting your toothbrush first say there are multiple advantages of this approach. For example, it softens the bristles, making the brushing experience more comfortable. It also allows the toothpaste to stick to your toothbrush more effectively and rinses off any debris that came into contact with your toothbrush since the last time you brushed.

Unless being used for personal medical oxygen, the gas cylinder regulator valve must be completely disconnected from the cylinder (in other words, the cylinder has an open end that allows the TSA officer to visually inspect the cylinder). TSA officers will NOT remove the seal or regulator valve from the cylinder. If the gas cylinder is sealed (i.e., the regulator valve is still attached) and not required for personal medical oxygen, the gas cylinder is prohibited, regardless of the reading on the pressure gauge indicator.
Squirting the dye out and spreading it all over your hair may be easy (and fun!), but this method can be messy and imprecise. Get a bowl and a brush, like salon colorists use, to mix and paint on dye with less mess and the most even, professional results.
When someone has a declining short-term memory that begins to have an impact on their work, social and home life, it may be an early sign of dementia. They may not just lose things (such as keys or remote controls) or misplace them in odd places, they may forget what they are for. They may forget to do simple household jobs or go to the shops and forget what they want to buy. They may have difficulty remembering something they have just read or seen on the TV, in recognising familiar faces (such as the Prime Minister) or recalling recent events. However, they may be able to recall in detail things that happened many years ago.
A person showing early signs of dementia may put everyday things in unusual places (for example, a loaf of bread in the washing machine, money in the oven, or washing-up liquid in the fridge). They may have difficulty recognising familiar items such as a chair, soap, toothbrush, cutlery, kettle, coffee jar, cooker or fridge.
Car seats cannot be donated due to liability issues, and there are very limited recycling options for them. Please read the recycler notes carefully for preparation instructions. It is recommended that the straps be cut off to render the seat unusable if the car/booster seat is placed in the garbage.
The classic Denman brush has been a curly-hair staple (say hi to the 63,000+ positive reviews) for good reason: It can do a little bit of everything for any curl type. A Denman brush can help define coils on type-4 hair, and it can also help create curls on type-3 hair. It can section, brush, detangle, and style. How? Because it has a rubber base (which creates tension when twirling) and stiff nylon bristles (which easily grip sections of hair). The result is a hair-defining MVP that deserves a spot in your kit.

Brushes purpose-built for climbing make a mockery of tooth and gun brushes. These can have nylon or natural boar-hair bristles. Climbing brushes have at least twice the surface area as a toothbrush, and some have up to four times that. They have robust handles and a denser pack of bristles. They last longer and do the best job of cleaning holds.
One popular theory is it was caused by genetic mutations as a result of the lack of sunlight once humans began to spread north. Another more controversial theory has it that blonde hair began to develop in Scandinavia as a result of sexual selection, as it was deemed more attractive.
Great article! I live in Fargo, ND and have Norwegian ancestry. I can confirm that the blonde hair/blue eye stereotype is very much believed in these areas to be a fact instead of a myth!Thanks for sharing!
But I always thought the mutation happened in Scandinavia due to lack of sunlight. How do we know that the people who settled in Scan after Ice Age 11,000 yrs ago were already blond/blue?What about the Lapps /Sami people who live in Northern Scan., do they have blond/blue combination? But I think they have dark skin similar to Eskimos. Also have heard and seen blonde/blue eyed dark skinned Solomon Islanders. Did the Vikings go all the way to the South Pacific ? Kase 2b1af7f3a8
