Five things you didn’t know about Neptune | E-Neighborhood Advisor

 

On September 23, 1846, German astronomer Johann Gottfried Galle discovered the planet Neptune, the eighth planet in our solar system. To celebrate this landmark event in astronomical history, here are five things Trivia Today tells us about the planet Neptune...

The Discovery of Neptune is still a Controversy 
The first person to have seen Neptune was likely Galileo, who marked it as a star in one of his drawings. However, since he did not identify it as a planet, he is not credited with the discovery. That credit goes to French mathematician Urbain Le Verrier and the English mathematician John Couch Adams, both of whom predicted that a new planet – known as Planet X – would be discovered in a specific region of the sky. When astronomer Johann Gottfried Galle actually found the planet in 1846, both mathematicians took credit for the discovery.

Neptune is the Coldest Planet in the Solar System 
The temperatures on Neptune can dip down to -221.45 degrees Celsius (-366.6 °F). That’s almost three times the coldest temperature ever recorded on Earth (-89.2°C; -129°F), which means that an unprotected human being would flash freeze in a second!

Neptune's has the Fastest Wind Speeds in the Solar System 
Neptune's winds can reach speeds of up to 1,500 miles per hour, faster than the speed of sound. Scientists are puzzled exactly how an icy cold planet like Neptune can get its cloud tops to move so fast. One idea is that the cold temperatures and the flow of fluid gasses in the planet’s atmosphere might reduce friction to the point that it’s easy to generate winds that move so quickly.

Neptune Has Dark Rings 
Neptune has five rings, all named after people involved in the discovery of Neptune (Galle, Le Verrier, Adams, Arago, and Lassell). The rings are not bright like Saturn's, so it's difficult for people to spot the rings even with powerful telescopes. The rings may be the remnants of a moon that was destroyed in an inner orbit, possibly by Neptune's gravity.

Voyager 2 Is the Only Earth Spacecraft to Visit Neptune 
Despite all the probes and telescopes that have been launched from Earth, the only spacecraft that has ever visited Neptune was NASA’s Voyager 2. Voyager 2 made its Neptune flyby on August 25, 1989, passing within 1,860 miles of the planet’s north pole. Voyager 2's data showed geysers on Triton (Neptune's moon) and dispelled the notion that the moon was all ice; it also proved the theory that Neptune has rings. Voyager 2 also viewed Neptune’s “Great Dark Spot,” the rotating storm system which has since disappeared, according to observations by the Hubble Space Telescope.

How to Upgrade a Home Office on a Budget



Photo by Ivan Samkov on Pexels

Working from home is not going away soon, so you should consider upgrading your workspace. To upgrade your home office, you don’t need to break the bank as you can reuse many items already in your home. With a small budget, you can create a conducive working environment in your apartment or townhouse. Here are the ways you can upgrade your workspace on a budget, presented by Capell Flooring and Interiors.

Use Your TV as an External Monitor

A small screen size can hurt your productivity, so upgrading to something bigger could make your work easier. If you have a small laptop screen, you don’t need to buy an external monitor as your TV can work just perfectly. You need an HDMI cable, an HDMI adapter, and a wireless keyboard to create a clean setup that will allow you to complete tasks faster. While some laptops come with an HDMI port built-in, some new models offer a USB-C adapter or Mini Display Port. If you want an extra visual workspace, you can use your TV as the second monitor. Choose the option to extend the screen instead of viewing on a second monitor. This comes in handy when creating content, as it allows you to handle all files in the same place.

Add Plants

Adding plants to your workspace impacts your mood and productivity. Some of the benefits of office plants include the ability to reduce stress, clean the air, and increase productivity. Plants make your workspace more attractive. Seeing greenery and nature promotes calm and can reduce stress, helping you focus on the tasks before you. You can adopt one or two plants to get a mental boost. If you have pets, research the plants that are safe for animals. Place some of the plants on shelves out of your pet’s reach.

Comfortable Furniture

It’s good to splurge a little on a comfortable office chair. Because you spend a lot of your time sitting on a chair, it’s a good investment. Figure out what’s the most comfortable for you. Get a chair that is supportive and comfortable. Features like height adjustability are good and ensure there’s enough padding to keep you in good posture. You can buy it from an office supply store and sit on the chair to know how it feels. If you’re ordering online, check that the store offers a return policy in case the item fails to match your expectations. Also, ensure you have a desk that can accommodate your items, and consider adding storage shelves to your office for the organization. 

Improve Lighting

Poor lighting can lead to fatigue, eye strain, stress, accidents, and headaches. Invest in good office lighting for benefits like less drowsiness, improved mood, fewer mistakes, reduced eye strain, and fewer reports of headaches. If you do zoom calls, you need a lighting setup that will make you look fabulous. Even a classic adjustable table lamp will work perfectly in your home office if you know how to position it. This offers clean lines and flexibility and can help you focus on tasks.

An upgrade on your lighting system is recommended if you don’t have natural light. While making improvements, you should consider changes like your overhead lighting that can boost your property value. This is important if you’re looking to sell soon. Take before-and-after photos to highlight the changes.

Improving your performance in your home office can be a matter of adding a few items like better lighting and more comfortable furniture. These enhancements don’t need to cost a lot as you can find budget furniture that will work perfectly in your home office.

Train your brain | E-Neighborhood Advisor

 

By the time you finish this article, your brain will be different -- according to Fast Company.

The reason for this cerebral shift is neuroplasticity—or the brain’s ability to change and restructure itself. Every time the brain processes new information, neurons fire, new pathways form, and the malleable brain alters its shape and structure.

What is neuroplasticity?
In a nutshell, neuroplasticity is the brain’s ability to learn and adapt. Until relatively recently, experts believed that our brains were fixed by the end of adolescence and that, in terms of neurons, it was all downhill from there. But the latest research has proved the opposite: that our brains can actually grow and change throughout adulthood. That is, if we treat our neural pathways right.

9 techniques to “rewire” your cognitive pathways:

1. Feed your brain
Your brain makes up only a tiny proportion of your total body weight, but it uses up a quarter of everything you eat. If you want enhanced neural pathways, you’ll need an enhanced diet. That means grabbing snacks like walnuts, blueberries, and avocado during the day. Vitamin D and magnesium are top priorities if you want to promote neuroplasticity.

2. Take naps
Obviously, a good night’s sleep of between seven and nine hours will always set you up for a better brain day. But a short afternoon nap of around 20 minutes will elevate your neuroplasticity potential even further. A short nap encourages the growth of dendritic spines, which act as crucial connectors between the neurons in your brain.

3. Don’t let the workday linger
Like muscle-building, neuroplasticity needs downtime in order to do its work properly. Managers should embed and enforce a “close the day” ritual that prioritizes reflection and gratitude for small wins. An end-of-day Slack message saying “Thanks for the great ideas in the brainstorming session today, everyone. See you tomorrow,” can help the team feel valued. Putting a hard stop to the stresses of the day in a way that also boosts endorphins creates perfect conditions for neuroplasticity. Bonus: it also sends the signal that it’s OK to “leave” work and unplug for the evening.

4. Expand your vocabulary
Try to learn one new word every day. According to experts, this simple act will spark a multitude of new neural pathways, both visual and auditory. (Give it a few months and it’ll make you unstoppable at Scrabble too).

5. Use the “wrong” hand
Non-dominant hand exercises are excellent for forming new neural pathways, as well as strengthening the connectivity between existing neurons. For instance, if you’re right-handed, try brushing your teeth with your left hand – and then try it while balancing on one leg for a double neuroplasticity bonus.

6. Learn to juggle
Juggling is frequently cited as an excellent means for improving neuroplasticity. Keep a small set of balls in your work drawer for a brain boost whenever you have a few spare seconds between tasks. The better you get, the bigger the benefits.

7. Play chess
Embrace chess – a game that has endless potential for neuroplasticity. Chess players have significantly more grey matter in their anterior cingulate cortex than those unfamiliar with en passant and castling. And you don’t even need another player or a board in order to reap the mental benefits. Simply log onto chess.com for a quick blast whenever you have a few minutes. (You don’t need to finish a game to get the neurological boost.)

8. Do mnemonic drills
Teaching yourself mnemonic devices, like formulas or rhymes, can enhance connectivity in your prefrontal parietal network, paving the way to new, positive pathways in your brain.

9. Be mindful, as a team
One of the best things you can do to promote neuroplasticity in a work force is to incorporate regular group meditation. There are multiple online options available to get you started. Not only does it help with the positive brain rewiring process (while expanding several useful parts of the brain), it also results in team members reacting to problems with an increased sense of calm, passion, and awareness. Neuroplasticity at its finest.

Welcome to September 2021 | Capell Flooring and Interiors

 


Dear friends,

I hope your fall is off to a great start! I always love this season and everything it brings with it.  Cooler weather, excitement for a new school year, and with that it seems weekends are granted a whole new level of importance.  No more long strings of days flowing into each other.  This year it seems that the more regular schedule that comes with the end of summer seems even more important for some reason. 🤔

The change of season often brings with it a moment to look back at the summer as it ends.  Has the summer foot traffic taken a toll on your floors?  Kids (and adults) coming in and out of the house more often, tracking in a bit more of the backyard, or pool water, than during other seasons can make your floors look and feel a bit worse for the wear.  

No fear! Capell Flooring is here!  Come see us right away, we’ll have your floors back to their beautiful best in no time!

Your friend,

Matt Capell
