Since 1941, Americans have been celebrating this week in November not just because Thursday is Thanksgiving, but because this week in National Bible Week. This is a week where Christians nationwide celebrate the scripture.
Even if you follow a different faith, you can still respectfully listen to others this week as they celebrate the best-selling book of all time.
How can you or your company celebrate this week?
• Share your favorite verse with your coworkers or family
• Hand out inspirational Bible calendars to customers
• Attend a church service for a denomination different than yours
• Attend a Bible discussion
Do you like bubbly drinks? Do you like caffeine as well? Then today is your lucky day- it’s National Carbonated Beverage with Caffeine Day. I bet you’re thinking the best drink to fill up your travel mug today is just some good ol’ soda, or perhaps a bubbly energy drink. But did you know that you can buy or make your own coffee soda?
A few companies out there make sparkling coffee, also called coffee soda. They’re basically just coffee infused with CO2, and perhaps a little sugar or citrus juice. Or you can do a little experiment at home today- mix 5 oz seltzer water, 2 oz espresso, and 2 oz of fresh OJ.
Whichever drink you choose today, don’t forget to put it in your trusty travel mug to get you from home to work, and all the places in between.
Too often these days, men are looked upon as being power-hungry and misogynistic. It seems like the even the good guys can’t catch a break in today’s society with all the feminists swarming around and pointing their fingers.
What can we do to help improve the image of men as a whole? Today is International Men’s Day, a day dedicated to promoting gender equality and removing the negative stigma men too often have in today’s news. The worldwide holiday began in 1999 and aims to be a beacon of light in the lives of todays men and boys. The organization focuses on showing boys how to have good values and character by highlighting positive male role models.
Your company can get involved by gifting Maglite flashlights to male employees who show they are role models determined to improve gender relations and the lives of the young boys in our country.
Promotional Maglites (Maglights is a common misspelling) will display your company logo for a very long time. But did you know that their famous lifetime limited warranty was just reduced to 10 years? I wouldn’t worry about the quality of this famous flashlight. I think that the company is just streamlining its cost of production and maintenance, to keep up with the competition. If a Maglite used to last a lifetime, it will probably continue to do so.
Here is part of the text from the Maglite website today:
Your pipe diameter tape measure is probably the most valuable and simplest tool in your toolbox. It will tell you the outside diameter of a pipeline (or your arm) when you wrap it around the circumference. What if you lost your pipe tape? How would you measure the diameter of a pipe or any round object?
Use a regular tape measure, if it is flexible enough to wrap around the pipe. A carpenter’s tape is made to stay stiff, so it won’t work in this case. Since the end hook won’t let you lay the zero mark against the pipe, you would have to start at the 1 or 2 inch mark. Read the circumference and divide by 3.14159. That’s a lot of trouble.
Use an expensive caliper, transfer the reading to a measuring tape, perhaps, then divide by pi. That’s a clumsy way of doing it.
Get a real expensive micrometer. Since they have a narrow range of measuring (1 inch), it would have to be a certain size to begin with. Then measure the diameter directly. Reading the markings on a micrometer is not the easiest thing to do. You have to read the shaft measurement, then add the tumbler measurement to it.
