How to of the Day
How to Tell if You Are Self Absorbed
No one likes to be told that they're self-absorbed. Someone who is self-absorbed is primarily interested in himself or herself and shows little concern for others. We all want to think that we are empathetic and compassionate human beings who consider other people’s feelings as well as our own. However, it can be easy to fall into the habit of focusing on yourself instead of others. Identifying whether you show characteristics of someone who is self-absorbed can allow you to make changes to your habits or mindset in order to be more inclusive of the needs and feelings of others.
How to Use "Etc." Correctly
You might think that it's easy to use et cetera, which translates to "and others" or, more literally, "and the other things", and is abbreviated as "etc." Surely everyone knows how to use "etc." correctly, right? Well, it's not all straightforward––et cetera can be commonly misspelled, improperly punctuated and even mispronounced! The use of et cetera isn't usually taught in schools or tutoring because it's considered to be just an abbreviation. Regardless, it's important to know how to use it properly. See Step 1 to get started.
How to Attract Blue Jays
Blue jays can be beneficial for the environment due to their proclivity of "planting" seeds and acorns. This, in turn, populates the environment with foliage. Today, you can find blue jays in just about any habitat, although they prefer oak woodlands. While they can be a bit raucous, they will add a beautiful vibrant pop of color to any yard or scene.
How to Merge Two Households
Merging two households takes a lot of work, but with careful planning you can make the job easy and even fun. First, do a purge and give away everything you don't really use. Figure out what items you really must keep, and create a new, fresh space with a combination of everyone's most treasured items. Finally, merging two households can involve running things a little differently to coexist well with the people you'll be sharing a home with.
How to Trace Your Ancient Ancestry Through DNA Sampling

The existence of genetic markers found in modern peoples has been studied to create a picture of how ancient peoples migrated around the world.
