Why Do My Canned and Bottled Soda Taste So Different?

Do you ever buy a can of Coke, for example, and wonder why the canned stuff tastes so different to the stuff in the big, plastic bottles?

You aren’t alone. Most of us struggle with this from time to time, and it can be quite annoying when you cannot work out why the taste is so different. In a bid to help you out with that issue, we recommend that you take a look at why this unique difference in taste even exists. Most of the time, you would probably never guess why it exists!

The recipe is, according to the manufacturers and the ingredient lists on the back, identical. So, what is there such a clear and obvious difference in the taste? It’s hard to deny.

One of the main reasons why is that a can of soda often tastes milder and less ‘juicy’ – which some people prefer – due to the polymers in aluminum soaking it up. However, by the same token, if that makes you think that sounds dodgy, it’s believed that the acetaldehyde in the plastic can adjust the flavor of your juice, too.

How should I drink my soda, then?

Glass bottles, then, are where to go if you want something that is as close to the ‘real’ taste as is possible. However, one thing to note is that if you think canned soda tastes quite metallic, you are likely to be more sensitive to metals than the average person.

Therefore, it’s not so much that the soda tastes of metal, but that you’ve noted a heightened sensitivity to the taste of metal as soon as your lips touch the can.

So, keep this in mind the next time you buy a soda. The best way to get something close to the real thing is to buy it from a glass bottle. Then, find the best way to store it. Putting it in the fridge makes it extremely cold, but the coolness can actually limit how much the taste manages to come out from the drink: something near freezing cold will just taste fizzy and cold!

Always be sure to take the time to look at what kind of soda you prefer. We all have our own choice when it comes to the kind of bottle/can we like to drink from. Find yours, and enjoy it!

What Are ZIP Codes? And Why Do We Use Them?

Whenever you go to buy or order something online, from fast food to something from Amazon, you’ll have to give a ZIP code. For years, many people have just done this without ever even thinking about it.

It’s as common a part of our address as, say, our house number or our state. We put it in with everything we order – but what actually is your ZIP code? Many people might provide it hundreds of times per year when they buy something, but they don’t actually know what it is or why they gave that information in the first place!

A ZIP code, then, is a very important part of finding out where we live. Everyone has their own ZIP code for the area that they live in, and these five-figured numerical collections are vital. We have to give our ZIP code to get our mail, to get items dropped off, and through some various other factors that might be very important to make sure we get what we actually paid for.

So, why do we use ZIP codes?

The ZIP code has been in use for a long, long time. It came into being in 1963, and until then the US Postal Service only used postal zones for large areas of cities. You would always have to include the ZIP code after your address but put it before the state. It was used to help keep mail more efficient and to try and minimize the risk of items being sent to the wrong part of the USA.

The ZIP code became very useful for numerous reasons, but it was to help make postal services more effective across the whole USA. The first number of the ZIP code was designated to be used for a group of states – 0 on the East Coast, 9 on the West Coast – and the second and third numbers would be the sectional center facility that the mail would be sent to for processing.

Then, the final two numbers were included to help make sure that it would go to the correct post office or post zone. As such, the famous five-figure ZIP code was born. It was a useful system that was designed to help make life easier for a busy postal service, and to this day it still plays a leading role in making that possible.

However, the system has changed a bit over the years. Did you know that the final four figures of your ZIP code might stand for something more? Now, these are to point out more specific particular areas. The sixths and seventh numbers are a delivery sector, which could be streets, a building, or an area of minor geographical size.

The last two numbers of the ZIP code are for delivery segments, like the side of the street the building is on, or the floor that the package is aimed at in a particular office. So, now that you can grasp why this system was put in place, do you think you’ll find it easier to use and remember your ZIP code?

Jackson Kids – The Unspoken Victims

It’s safe to say that the majority of the world are familiar with (or heard of) the King of Pop, Michael Jackson. Micheal spent his life in the public eye, from the day Jackson 5 kick-started his music career, at age 13.

During the chaos of his career, he also became a father to three children; Michael Joseph, Paris and Prince Michael.

There is no denying that the late artist went through his fair share of adversities before he passed away. However, with the focus mainly being on Michael, it was easy to forget that his three children were attempting to lead normal lives in the process and were going through their own difficulties…

So who are these Jackson children? How did they cope with their bizarre situation? where are they now? Each child has their own story filled with events and experiences that might shock you.

Wow: Archaeologists Dig Up Great Stuff at the ’69 Woodstock Field

Archaeologists are always on work trying to find something from the past and evaluate its significance today. On a five day excavation, Binghamton University’s Public Archaeology Facility found some astonishing artifacts which include, parts of old aluminum that can pull tabs, bits of broken bottle glass.

However what they were exactly looking for was where The Who, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Janis Joplin and Joe Cocker cheered the crowds 49 years ago.

The project director Josh Anderson explains, “The overall point of this investigation is to kind of define the stage space…We can use this as a reference point, People can stand on that and look up at the hill and say, ‘Oh, this is where the performers were. Jimi Hendrix stood here and played his guitar at 8:30 in the morning.”

This site, Max Yasgur’s farm which is 80 miles away north from New York City is in the category on historical places on the National Register. The director of The Museum at Bethel Woods, Wade Lawrence says, “This is a significant historic site in American culture, one of the few peaceful events that gets commemorated from the 1960s”. The archaeologists will help make walking routes on the site for concert’s 50th anniversary which is in the year 2019.

The aerial shots already taken are not reliable enough to conclude the exact point where the concert took place. The exact place of the original ’69 stage is underneath a layer of trampled fill. However, the Archaeologists seem to have done their homework already. They have found the spot where wooden “peace fence” was in front of the stage and can match the photos to the specific spot on the field. This wooden piece can help them estimate where the corners of the stage were 49 years back.

The archeologist worked on the site and scraped the dirt. One of the archeologists named Paul Brown says, “It’s some science. It’s some guesswork, you hope that you get lucky.”

The artifacts such as pull tab will help the archaeologist determine the surface level of the concert which was 49 years ago. The report of the site by archeologists will also be added to the museum official records to restore the significance of the place.

People have already started visiting the place and also took pictures and explored the area. One of the people who visited the site, an old Woodstock veteran named Charles Maloney says, “There’s just something about this place that — and I’m not the only one — that draws people here, I mean, this area here could have 200 people. And you can still hear the silence.”

Female News Anchors – In Real Life

When television broadcast news first came onto the scene, it was typical for the anchors to be men. Some of the first and most notable anchors include Douglas Edwards and Walter Cronkite. Cronkite reported on news events from the late 1930s until 1981 and he was often referred to as “the most trusted man in America.” Cronkite covered some of the most notable events in his time such as the Nuremberg Trials, The Vietnam War and Watergate.

Cronkite hosted the CBS Evening News for 19 years as CBS had a retirement policy for its employees to retire at 65. While most of the anchors in the field were men in the early days of television, many prominent female anchors did appear on the scene soon after. As the medium of television grew in popularity, women became interested in pursuing careers in the field. Nowadays, a large number of women have made their way onto news programs and we are here to give you a glimpse into their real lives.

Although there are a lot of female journalists on television today, it was not always that way. Barbara Walters was one female anchor who blazed the trail for future female news broadcasters to gain respect and recognition. Walters became well-known in the 1960s when she began hosting The Today Show with Hugh Downs. She was the first woman to hold the title as host on an American news show and her career continued to grow from there. She famously went on to create and co-host The View in addition to hosting a number of special reports and conducting heavily watched interviews. At a time when there were few females in the newsroom, Walters worked her way up through the ranks and paved the way for future female anchors.

Since the success of Walters’ career, many other female news anchors have emerged on the scene. Women such as Diane Sawyer and Katie Couric have made their impact in television broadcast journalism. News organizations nowadays are hiring women to prominent positions on television. Sports caster Erin Andrews is another example, appearing on Fox NFL and from there becomong the co-host of Dancing with the Stars.

There are now so many news outlets and programs that we cannot keep track of all of the anchors on television. More and more women are becoming interested in the field of broadcast journalism, which means there are more female anchors on TV. But have no fear! We have compiled a list of some of the most outstanding and professional female anchors on television. While you may not recognize their names, you will most likely recognize their faces from seeing them on television.

6 Tips for Making the Most When Stuck in Traffic

Ever find yourself stuck in traffic, tapping your fingers away on the heat of the steering wheel to pass the time?

Do you find your brow furrowing more with every passing second? One eye on the clock and another on the traffic lights?

How often do you find yourself contorting with barely-contained fury when your phone buzzes? You already said you were in traffic; why do they need to ask again!?

Welcome to the world of big city traffic jams. Not only do they make it hard for even the most punctual person to run their life on time, they make it a challenge to enjoy any kind of experience in the car. Not only are you enjoying a wonderful waste of gas, you need to delay every plan that was set in motion due to the delays.

Thankfully, you don’t need to just sit there and think about how great it could be if you could fly. In a bid to help you make those traffic jams a touch less rage-inducing, we’ve got a few ideas. The next time you find yourself wanting to walk to work in future, try these.

Sing.

The first piece of advice that we have for you is to have a nice, plain old sing. The worst thing that you can do is put on the radio. You’ll remind that music, like most forms of art, has gone down the tubes. The same diatribe comes on with alarming regularity, and it will only make the strain of sitting in traffic that much worse. If you never bought a phone with enough charge to play the music that you do like, sing your own music. Just watch those high notes; sitting in traffic without windows might suck.

Talk Yourself Around.

So you now have X amount of minutes to have a nice little thinktank with yourself. Now, I know that can sound terrible. Most of us spend traffic jams in a mood, so your thoughts are likely to be more negative. Instead, use that anger and turn it into an energy for a purpose and sense of good. Got your eye on that cigarette deck/e-cig and want to take a puff to ‘calm down’ even though you want to stop? Now is the time to convince yourself to make a change. You might as well benefit in some capacity from this trap; use traffic time to look at how you can improve yourself, and you might come out the other side feeling productive instead of pensive.

Read/Listen to Something Worthwhile.

Instead of reading Twitter 85 times or gasping at the latest transfer rumor about your team, read something worthwhile. If you can’t read on your screen/don’t want to take your eyes off the road (advised), get an audiobook. Then you can make the most of that audio capacity on your hardware. Make it something actually worthwhile. You keep putting off that HP Lovecraft audiobook… why not listen to that instead of yet another radio show?

Prepare for Work.

We’ve all been there. Get the rear view that little mirror down. Make sure your teeth look good, and ensure you’ve got some mouthwash to help make certain you won’t upset anyone’ nostril when you get to work. Sort out the tie, and the hair, and everything else you can fix, clean and correct without being accused of being a pervert in the middle of a traffic jam.

Clean it Out.

You’ve got nothing else to do – why not give your car a bit of a clear? Admit it, it’s a bit of a sty. If you are in total gridlock and cannot move, get an empty bag and start filling that bag with whatever is lying around. Organize all of the stuff in your glove compartment. Put that scarf up that’s lying under about 804 newspapers. Simple stuff, but it’s more productive than just gritting your teeth until you get moving again.

Ask Him/Her Out. The last one is the one that you were hoping we’d bring up, and we are giving you permission. Go for it. Pick up the phone and send that certain him or her a message. Ask them out, you’ve been on the brink of doing it for weeks. Wait for any longer, and they’ll presume you aren’t interested. You’ve got a good rapport, and if he/she responds it’ll leave you in a wonderful mood for the rest of the day. That traffic jam will stop being so frustrating. Yeah, they might say no and make it worse…but you’re losing concentration anyway thinking about them, so come on – DO IT!

Act on one of these (definitely the last one, Romeo/Juliet) and make sure that you don’t keep dreading the morning/evening/whenever traffic jam quite so much in the future
