8 Weird Things You Never Knew About Your Eyebrows

By Natasha Burton for Daily Makeover
Many of us spend a lot of time (and money!) maintaining our eyebrows, from waxing to plucking to threading to filling them in. Most people, however, don’t know just why we have these arched patches of hair on our foreheads in the first place—what purpose do they really serve? What does the shape and composition of your brows actually say about you?
Well, wonder no more! Read on to find out 8 fun, odd facts about eyebrows. You’ll never look at yours the same way again!
1. They’re designed to help us see.
The real function of our brows (aside from making us look glam, of course) is to keep moisture out of our eyes when it’s raining or when we sweat. That arched shape helps divert liquid to the side of our faces, keeping those peepers clear.
2. There’s a lot of hair in there!
According to the Bosley hair transplant company, the average person has about 250 hairs per eyebrow. However, some reports show that never-plucked brows can have as many as 1100 total hairs. (Wow!)
3. Brows have a lifespan.
The average lifespan of an eyebrow is four months, meaning the time it takes for each hair to fall out and new growth to fill in.
4. They’re crucial for facial recognition. 
A study done by MIT found that people had more trouble correctly identifying the faces of people they knew when they were presented with images of them missing their eyebrows. Thus, researchers concluded that brows may be more important for facial recognition than eyes themselves.
5. Brows are voice-controlled … kind of.
Brows help us signal emotions, but they’re also on autopilot: As the pitch of your voice rises, so do your eyebrows and vice versa. Not only that but when you make an expression without thinking, like when you’re surprised, eyebrows move in a way that’s symmetrical to each other. Conversely, when you make what’s called an ‘intended’ expression, like suspicion and curiosity, your brows will furrow asymmetrically.
6. They give humans a special edge.
Many mammals have brows and use them to express emotions, but we’re the only species that has eyebrows against bare skin — which, apparently, provides us with an evolutionary advantage because our expressions are easier for our fellow men and women to see and interpret.
7. We’re not the first to beautify our brows.
When we pluck and define our brows, we are actually taking part in a long, long history of facial grooming. Every culture and time period has had a different way of shaping their brows: In Florence during the Renaissance, people shaved their eyebrows off completely, while the colonial elite in 18th-century America preferred to beef their brows up using grey mouse skin (ew!).
8. Your brows say more about you than you know.
According to the book Amazing Face Reading by Mac Fuller, J.D., the type of eyebrow you have defines who you are. Curved eyebrows indicate someone who is people-oriented and needs real-world examples to understand a problem, while straight eyebrows imply that someone is more direct, factual, and logical, thriving on technical details. Angled eyebrows, Fuller says, show someone who likes to be right and strives to be mentally in-control, no matter the situation.

How to Clean Your Stainless Steel Sink

Make It Shine:

How to Clean Your Stainless Steel Sink                    

If your kitchen sink is a bit dingy, then make it look just like new with eco-friendly materials you already have in your kitchen. And there's no scrubbing involved with this quick clean that basically costs nothing to make. Safely buff your way to a fresh and sparkling basin that will stay that way for weeks.
Keep reading for the easy directions.
What You'll Need:
  • Sponge
  • Baking soda
  • Vinegar
  • Lemon or orange peel
  • Olive oil
  • Paper towel
  1. Give your sink a quick wash and rinse, removing all dishes and any food bits from the drain. Then sprinkle the entire sink with baking soda and use a soft sponge, working in a circular movement, to scrub the basin. Baking soda softly cleans without scratching stainless steel.
  1. Rinse the sink with vinegar, which will bubble and fizz. Vinegar naturally disinfects while helping remove hard water stains from your stainless steel sink. Then lightly rub with the sponge and rinse the sink with water. You can also drop a garbage disposal refreshing bomb down the drain to keep the entire sink smelling fresh.
  2. Put lemon or orange peel to good use, and rub the entire sink basin with a section of peel, rubbing the skin against the stainless steel, which helps deodorize the sink while helping the basin keep its new shine.
  1. Finish by buffing with a paper towel and a touch of olive oil. Your sink will stay wonderfully shiny for several weeks before needing a refresher.

Simple Household Tips That Will Save You Thousands of Dollars

Simple Household Tips That Will Save You Thousands of Dollars

Follow these easy steps from Business Insider and you could be saving tons of money!
These days, people are willing to go to any extreme to save a few bucks. But we're not going to tell you to eat beans and rice or wash your hair with eggs. There are ways to save that are sitting right under our noses –– and our roofs. Here are some simple household savings tips that could save you hundreds of dollars a year.
RELATED: Save Hundreds on Your Next Vacation
  • Install low-flow water faucets and save up to 60 percent on your water bill. Do you really need a faucet with fire hydrant strength flow to do the dishes? Chances are the answer is no, and by simply replacing your faucets with low-flow models, you could cut your water bill by 25 to 60 percent. They cost around $10 to $20 a piece, which is well worth the investment.
  • Update your light bulbs and save up to 75 percent on your electricity bill. Switching out old light bulbs for compact fluorescent could save up to 75 percent on your electric bill. Yes, they cost a bit more than traditional bulbs, but they last 10 to 25 times longer and use power more efficiently. Only 6 percent of the electricity sucked up by traditional bulbs (those older than 14 or 15 years) is turned into light –– the rest becomes very inefficiently used heat. 
  • Unplug your electronics at night and save $100 per year. The typical American home has 40 electronics powered up at any given moment –– TV, cell phone chargers, blenders, etc. What people don't realize is they are using electricity even when they're powered off. U.S. households spend as much as $100 per year powering these "vampire" electronics. Simple fix: Plug your devices into power strips and switch them off at once at the end of the day.
Read on for more.
  • Insulate your hot water heater to save up to 9 percent on utilities. Insulating your hot water tank (and the pipes around it) is an simple way to save money on utilities, since it keeps heat from escaping and getting wasted in colder months. Buy a $20 insulating blanket and you'll be able to trap in up to 40 percent more heat, saving as much as 9% on your bill.
  • Seal windows and doorways to save 20 percent on heating costs. A third of a home's total heat is lost through drafty windows and doors, and the EPA estimates sealing up cracks and adding proper insulation can save up to 20% on heating and cooling costs. Try using insulated window shades, weatherstrips or plastic film kits to seal up openings. Caulk is also a simple way to fill cracks in floors, windows and doorways. For drafty basement or attic windows, try gluing a piece of foam board to 3/8-inch drywall and fitting it snugly into the window frame. 
  • Stop buying bottled water and save $2,000 for a family of four. Bottled water is one of the biggest money sucks out there. If drinking from the tap is too much to bear, investing in a water filter is a simple and cost-effective alternative. An example from TLC found a family of four throws away more than $3,000 on bottled water per year. With a basic pitcher-style filtration system (about $20 + a new filter every 40 gallons), they would spend just $119. Savings: $2,900. 
  • Use curtains and blinds to cut cooling costs by 45 percent. Summer and winter are the best times to use curtains sun as a natural heating/cooling system. Highly reflective blinds can reduce heat gain by around 45% during summer. The opposite applies in winter, when you should use window treatments to trap heat in. Most conventional draperies can reduce heat loss from a warm room up to 10%. 
  • Use free veterinarian clinics to save up to $340 per year. Even if your pet is the picture of good health, annual veterinarian checkups can cost up to $140 for kittens and puppies and as much as $340 for geriatric cats and dogs. Save by seeking out free clinics, which some vets host one or two times a year. "My husband and I always schedule check-ups and vaccinations during these times," writes Kendal Perez of Hassle-free Savings. "If your vet doesn't offer this service, check with your local Humane Society or animal-control unit for recommendations." 
  • Stop buying all-organic produce and watch your grocery bill shrink. Plenty of regular produce isn't "dirty" (ie: laden with pesticides) enough to warrant paying top dollar (as much as 150% more) for organic versions anyway. For example, avocados are one of the cleanest foods out there, and organic versions cost an extra $1 a piece. The Environmental Works Group has an excellent chart detailing the "dirty" and "clean" products we should worry about. 
  • Ignore 'Sell By' dates to stop wasting food and save $6,000 a year. The average American wastes about $28 to $43 in food each month, roughly 20 pounds of food, according to the National Resource Defense Council. This has to stop. It helps to start ignoring "Sell-by” and “use-by” dates. They are not federally regulated and do not indicate safety, except on certain baby foods, the NRD says. They are simply suggestions, and a lot of foods can last at 15 days after those dates. When in doubt, throw it in the freezer to get the most out of it.
  • Browse the web for coupon codes before buying anything online. If you're shopping online without browsing for coupon codes, you're missing out on a lot of potential savings power. We love RetailMeNot, CouponSherpa, and, all of which have handy apps you can use on your phone. And we use to find all sorts of coupon codes for free shipping online. 
  • Plan your shopping trips around common sales cycles. Everyone knows the best times to find deals on summer clothing is typically in winter, and vice versa. But there are even more sales cycles to learn about and leverage. For example, winter is high season for sporting goods, boats, computers and wedding supplies, according to Spring is best for electronics, cookware, and thrift store deals. As it happens, March is known for excellent deals on frozen foods. There's a great list of grocery sales cycles at
  • Invest in a programmable thermostat and save $180 per year. If you work long hours or are away from home much of the time during the week, a programmable thermostat is a no-brainer. It adjusts heat and cooling settings according to a pre-set schedule, saving up to $180 each year in energy costs. 
  • Change your car's air filter and save up to $450 per year. If left unchanged, air filters get clogged up with gunk that can cut your fuel efficiency by 10 to 20 percent. At current gas rates for a typical driver, that could cost up to $450 more each year. Change the filter yourself or drop $25 for a mechanic to do it. How often you change it depends on your road and weather conditions, but the general rule of thumb is every 10,000 to 12,500 miles. 
  • Clean your dryer lint trap to increase efficiency by 75 percent. It seems like a no-brainer but forgetting to clean the lint trap on your dryer makes a huge difference. Depending how much lint builds up and the type of dryer you have, you could see your efficiency reduced by 75 percent. And a less efficient dryer means two things: Higher energy bills and a shorter lifespan for your appliance. 
  • Use the right-sized cookware and save $36 per year. Size does matter when it comes to picking out cookware. Using pots and pans with flat bottoms that fit the burners can mean the difference between saving or wasting a ton of energy. For example, a 6" pot on an 8" burner wastes over 40 percent of that burner's heat. The average savings earned by using the right pots are about $36 annually for an electric stove and $18 for a gas range. 
  • Boil water in a microwave other than a stove to waste 60 percent less energy. Boiling water in a microwave rather than on an electric stove-top uses 60% less energy. "Simply put, for every cup boiled in the microwave, it takes me about four minutes less time to do it than on the stove top," says Trent Hamm of The Simple Dollar. "It also saves approximately $0.03 doing it that way." 
  • Regularly check your car's tire pressure and save $0.11/gallon at the pump. The health of your tire's tread and air pressure can increase your gas mileage by up to 3.3 percent, for a savings of $0.11 per gallon. You can find the proper pressure specifications on a manufacturer's note (usually found on the inside of the driver's door). 
  • Take shorter showers and save $100 per year. A bath requires up to 70 gallons of water. A five-minute shower uses only 10 to 25 gallons. You don't need a math whiz to realize the potential savings by changing your bathing routine. Take this example from the Christian Science Monitor: "Let’s say that you take a twelve minute shower every day, and your shower head produces two gallons of water per minute. If you cut that down to four minutes, you’re saving sixteen gallons of water per shower, or 5,840 gallons per year. Depending on where you are, that will save you $10 to $100 a year in water usage, according to these rates."
  • Change your A/C filter every three months. In an ideal world, you should check the filter in your A/C unit each month, especially during the winter and summer. But the EPA recommends changing it out at least four times a year. All the dirt it sucks in can really cramp its efficiency and drive up your heating/cooling costs –– not to mention saving you a visit from the repairman when grimy build up wears it out. 
  • Buy produce when it's in-season and save up to 15 percent on grocery bills. If you buy produce when it's out of its natural growing season, chances are you'll not only get an inferior product, but you'll pay more for it, too. Ethnic grocery stores are an excellent source for regionally-specific produce like avocados, mangoes and limes, and buying produce that is in season could help you save 10 to 15 percent on average ($30/year).
  • Bike to work if you live within a few miles from the office. Due to rising fuel costs and tire upkeep, the cost of owning a car increased nearly 2 percent in 2012 to $8,946, according to AAA. It costs just $308 per year to keep bikes in shape––nearly 30 times less than cars, per the Sierra Club: "If American drivers were to make just one four-mile round trip each week with a bicycle instead of a car, they would save nearly 2 billion gallons of gas. At $4 per gallon, total savings would be $7.3 billion a year."
  • Shop around for home insurance policies and save 25 percent. You're only cheating yourself if you haven't shopped around for a better home insurance policy. Insurance companies will negotiate if they're not willing to lose a customer and you can come up with a better rate somewhere else. You can also try raising your deductible in order to cut your overall cost by 25 percent. Find free insurance quotes through or

Ecological new designs are a great way of preparing ourselves for a greener future. However, this
does not solve the waste problems we are experiencing today. Reusing waste materials is a great
solution to reduce the vastly growing pile of rubbish we’re stuck with due to the immensely popular
throwaway-products. Whether you go for reusable bags at the groceries or refurbishing old furniture,
you don’t have to start big to make changes.

Reusing Glass Bottles 2

Reuse design is exactly what inspired Spanish designer Tati Guimaraes to create the Dvinus collection
for Ciclus, an environmentally friendly and sustainable design company located in Spain.

Reusing Glass Bottles 5

Dvinus consists out of a variety of polished wooden table tops with holes cut out for the table’s legs.
All accessories are absent, which means you have to supply the legs yourselves using empty bottles
from your trash can. This means you can shape your table as you like, using your favourite wine
brands as classy design objects. The reusing motion makes you reconsider your everyday lifestyle to
prevent throwing out useful materials in the future

Reusing Glass Bottles 1

Dvinus is ideal for an evening of wine tasting on the couch while showing your brand new coffee
table to your dinner guests. The combination of design minimalism and durability whilst promoting
an eco-friendly lifestyle makes this product an absolute must for design fanatics.

Solar and Lunar Eclipses in 2014

There will be four solar and lunar eclipses in 2014. Two of them will be total lunar eclipses as well as one annular and one partial solar eclipse. They will be mostly observable in Asia, North America and Oceania. Sun and Moon eclipses are one of the most breathtaking sights observable in nature, and sometimes there can be seven of them in one year, although the last time this happened was on the year 1982. In 2014 there will be only four eclipses, which is the fewest possible. However, two of them will be total lunar eclipses when the Moon moves into the Earth’s shadow and won’t be visible at all.
Unlike solar eclipses, moon eclipses happen during full Moon and can be observed anywhere from Earth where to Moon is above the horizon. Of course, there is also a little luck involved when it comes to cloudiness. Solar eclipses occur only at new Moon, when the Moon’s shadow crosses the Earth’s surface and stands directly between us and the Sun. The Moon is much smaller than Earth, so casts a smaller shadow, which narrows the areas on Earth where the solar eclipse can be seen from.
The reason why eclipses can’t be seen monthly is because every new and full moon the lunar orbit moves about 5 degrees to Earth’s orbital plane. If the Moon’s body is completely hidden because of the Earth casting its shadow on it, the eclipse is considered to be total. This can last from seconds to several minutes and can be observed only from a small area of the Earth’s surface, usually just around 100 miles or 160 kilometers wide. On the other parts of the Earth a partial Moon eclipse can be observed.
April 15th, 2014 Total Lunar Eclipse
(Visible in West Asia, North-East America, parts of South America)
In the early morning of the April 15th, 2014, the first total lunar eclipse in two and half years can be seen. If the skies are clear, the totality of eclipse can be seen in North America and western South America at 7:46 Universal time. The whole lunar eclipse will last for 78 minutes from 5:58 until 9:33 UT. An interesting fact is that this will be the first of four consecutive total lunar eclipses, which is a quite rare occurrence. The next time this will happen is in 2032.
April 29th, 2013 Annular Solar Eclipse
(Visible in South Asia, Australia, Pacific, Indian Ocean, Antarctica)
Once the full Moon from the lunar eclipse on the 15th of April turns into new Moon, it moves in front of the Sun, creating an annular Solar eclipse. This means that the Moon will stand between the Sun and the Earth. On the 29th of April it will be possible to see the Moon’s silhouette perfectly fitting the Sun’s disk. This is an unusual occurrence, since more often than not annular Solar eclipses usually have an off center ring. This phenomenon will last for only 49 seconds and can be observed only from a small area in Antarctica at around 7:07 UT. The rest of the world can watch the sky for a partial solar eclipse.
October 8th, 2014 Total Lunar Eclipse
(Visible in West Asia, West Australia, parts of North America, South-East America)
The second lunar eclipse in 2014 will also be a total lunar eclipse. The mid-eclipse can be observed at 10:55, which is quite late. If you are watching the sky from Australia or Eastern Asia you will see it shortly after the sunset. The beginning of this total lunar eclipse will be at 9:15UT and the end at 12:34UT.
October 23rd, 2014 Partial Solar Eclipse
(Visible in East Asia, most North America, Pacific, Atlantic)
The second solar eclipse in 2014 will be a partial eclipse on the October 23rd. As seen from the Earth the Moon will partially cover the disk of Sun. At some parts of Northern America and Russia it will be even possible to see the Moon covering four fifths of the Sun’s diameter. The expected start of this eclipse is at 19:38UT and it will last until 23:52UT.
Let’s keep an eye on the sky for lunar and solar eclipses in 2014!

Top 10 Eco Cars in 2014

GreenBuzzz is looking ahead for the most eco-friendly cars that will be released this year. Eco cars in 2014 will be a mix of electric, low emission diesel and gasoline, as well as plug-in hybrids brought to the world’s market by well known brands to show their innovations that are even more environment friendly than their previous releases. To mark vehicle innovation this year, high tech, but low emission models launched in 2014 are featured in this top 10 list. All of them are finalists of famous car contests such as the Next Green Car or Eco Car:The Next Challenge and all of them are featured in USA and UK government rankings of the most fuel efficient cars.
Audi A6 TDI
Audi A6 TDIAudi’s 2014 A6 TDI shows that making the car more environmentally friendly doesn’t necessarily mean that it should influence the joy of driving. This sedan has luxury, style, comfort, on-board electronics, while carbon dioxide emissions are significantly reduced.
Volkswagen Passat BlueMotion
Volkswagen Passat BlueMotionThis midsize Passat shows the smart strategy of Volkswagen. Its fuel efficiency hints at possible future technologies that would make the vehicles more fuel efficient without resorting to hybridization. BlueMotion main concept is deactivating cylinders to turn the engine from an inline four-cylinder to a straight-twin for optimal efficiency.
Tesla Model X
2014 Tesla Model X doorsTesla Model X is the third completely electronic car produced by Tesla Motors. It stands out among others with its rear “falcon wings” that are not only functional, but add a little bonus point to the style. Fanciness aside, it is a green car with zero emissions and great performance.
Mazda 3
Mazda3Mazda has a vision for safe and eco-friendly cars. The Mazda 3 in 2014 is an embodiment of this concept. It is a comfortable, good looking model whose aerodynamics to acceleration and braking is one of the best in its class.
Fiat 500e
Fiat 500eReduced fuel emissions are good for environment, but zero emissions are much better. FIAT 500e is a car with zero emissions, because it is a 100% battery operated electric car. On top of that, this model keeps the same cool looking Italian style, while keeping a strong and smooth accelerations and aerodynamic bodywork.
Kia Soul EV
Kial Soul EVKIA Soul EV will be the first electric KIA’s car that is sold outside Korea. It stands out among the others not only because it has zero fuel emissions, but also because KIA took eco-friendliness very seriously. Not only the engine is good for environment, the plastics, foam and fabrics in its interior are made from biological materials.
Toyota Corolla LE Eco

Ford Fusion Energi SE
Ford Fusion EnergiFord Fusion Energi SE not only has the looks, it is also one of the safest cars in the market. This family friendly car has a hybrid engine. Ford went to plug-in technology instead of pure electric cars when it turned out that it is much less resource effective. However, this strategy turned out to be successful, because this car is loved not only by people that don’t care much about the environment as well as die-hard green enthusiasts.
Honda Accord Hybrid
Honda Accord HybridHonda Accord Hybrid is definitely one of the top eco cars in 2014. It has won the Green Car of the year award because it has evolved to meet the current market that is looking for the best fuel efficiency as well as improved environmental impact. Honda Accord Hybrid not only does exactly that, it is currently the most efficient mid-size hybrid car in the market by achieving up to 50 highway miles per gallon.
We hope you liked the overview of the top 10 Eco Cars in 2014. Buckle up, drive safe and eco-friendly!

The First Aerial Footage of a Penguin Colony… Shot by a Bird

Filming nature from the air sometimes can be really difficult. Not only the camera has to be good, but also the aerial vehicle often needs to be motion stabilized for perfect aerial shots. However, many great things happen by accident.
Falcon Films a Penguin Colony
Take a look at this wildlife shoot. The angle doesn’t seem traditional, but the view is amazing and seems to perfectly depict the everyday life of a penguin colony. It might have been shot by an artistic documentary camera man. As you might have already guessed, this is not the case. It is actually shot by a bird, a very curious falcon.
Falcon with a Camera
Yes, this guy. :)
This is the time of the year when most of the penguin eggs have already hatched, and penguins are on guard over their young day and night. This falcon thought he got lucky to find one egg that hasn’t hatched yet. As it turns out, there is a good reason why it hasn’t happened. It was actually a disguised camera. Nevertheless, this bird of prey chose to steal it, and as the result, an incredible footage of the penguin colony was made.
When the bird finally realized that a camera doesn’t make a good treat, a pair of vultures descend and fall for the same trick and this time make the camera roll down the hill while penguins themselves don’t seem to care much about what happens.
If we let the nature go its own way and play by its own rules, amazing and amusing things can happen

20 Most Amazing Microscope Shots Pictures !
