Good question. Charge-ware is a "new" way for programmers to make an extra dollar off of unsuspecting down loaders like us, who download for example, "Free MP3 download". Not the popular version, which provides a genuinely awesome method by which to obtain Free music. Its the version by "Mobile Kings". Every time you make a move using this app, you are charged little fees and random charges.

Beware of this, and other "chargeware" applications!

Note: to avoid being charged "unsuspectingly," never download anything you are uncertain of with a smartphone or a tablet connected to a cellular provider, or ever give credit card information (unless you are certain of what will be charged and nothing else).

Yes, eggs can break inside a hen, and it can actually be quite dangerous. Egg yolk peritonitis is a serious condition that can occur when egg matter is trapped inside the hen’s body, causing a bacterial infection. Hens suffering from this condition usually slow down egg production or stop completely. They may also be less active, have difficulty breathing, and exhibit abdominal distension. It’s usually treated with analgesics, anti-inflammatories, and antibiotics, although sometimes surgery is required.

A few reasons. One, hardback books carry historic prestige, as they were the only way you could get a book until the 1930s, when inexpensive (and often pocket-sized) paperback books finally hit the market. The paperback format became incredibly popular, but they were inevitably perceived as somehow inferior, with lesser-anticipated titles even debuting as paperback exclusives and some reviewers only considering hardback releases. That leads us to the second reason: Because of the built-in prestige, booksellers can sell new releases in hardback (which actually cost more to make) at a higher price and make a killing, making back any money they spent in the lead-up to publishing. Then, some time later, they can re-market the cheaper-to-make paperback version and make another killing. Oh, another key reason: Hardbacks are big and easier to display prominently on bookstore shelves.

When there are too many bees to fit in an established hive, they split into two groups. One stays in the hive with a new queen, and the other ventures off into the wilderness with the old queen, in search of a new home. Those scout bees even have special dances to alert the others when they've found a suitable replacement (and show them how to find it), and they essentially choose a new home democratically, with other bees copying the dance to indicate their agreement. Maybe we should take some cues from the bees—can you imagine if you got to your polling place and the two candidates were locked in an epic dance battle, and you had to copy their moves to cast your vote for the winner? Sounds like fun to me.

An ophthalmologist is a medical doctor or a doctor of osteopathic medicine who can do surgeries and diagnose all eye diseases. Some specialize in certain eye conditions, and many are involved in scientific research. An optometrist, on the other hand, has a doctor of optometry (OD) degree. Optometrists mostly prescribe corrective lenses, but they can also diagnose eye abnormalities and prescribe medications for them. The specific conditions optometrists are allowed to treat can be restricted at the state level.

Although it’s not an exact science, there are a few facial expressions and reactions that could indicate when someone is lying, according to FBI agent Mark Bouton. These giveaways include: Eyes darting back and forth Rapid blinking Closing their eyes for more than a second Looking directly to the right, up and to the right, or down and to the right Fake smile Touching their face Pursing their lips Sweating or blushing Shaking their head

In the Southern Hemisphere, seasons are opposite of the Northern Hemisphere, meaning December falls in the summertime. Some places in countries like Australia and South Africa hold Midwinter Christmas events in July so that they have a winter feel like Christmas in the Northern Hemisphere. These countries still celebrate actual Christmas on December 25. Alternatively, the Northern Hemisphere celebrates Christmas in July ironically. The Hallmark Channel will show Christmas films during this time to coincide with the premiere of that year’s Keepsake Ornament collection, a marketing ploy that has literally helped to bolster the phrase “Hallmark holiday.”

The practical reason why walking under a ladder is considered bad luck is that it’s just plain dangerous. The more superstitious theory is that the shape of a ladder against a wall forms a triangle, a symbol of the Holy Trinity in Christianity. Some believe that walking under a ladder would “break” the Trinity, a blasphemous act that could attract the devil. That's not the only explanation, though. Some believe a ladder against a wall resembles a gallows (associated with death by hanging), and the ancient Egyptians believed walking under a ladder could accidentally allow you to see a god climbing up or down it.

When an adult is incapable of making decisions about their own life, a conservatorship can be a way to help them. A conservator takes responsibility for the conservatee's personal life and/or finances, making sure the conservatee is taken care of. In Britney Spears' case, her father and a lawyer were named her conservators in 2008 after her very public breakdown. They controlled both the personal and financial aspects of Britney's life until 2019, when the lawyer stepped down and Britney's dad temporarily relinquished his conservatorship over her personal life to a "care manager." It's back in the news now because this arrangement is temporary, set to expire on Aug. 22, 2020. A judge might renew it, but some fans are convinced Britney wants out of the conservatorship entirely, going as far as trending "#FreeBritney" in an effort to show support for the Princess of Pop. Here's hoping it all works out for the best.

The decathlon's ten events are spread out over two days. First day events: 100-meter dash, running long jump, shot put, high jump, and 400-meter run. Second day events: 110-meter hurdles, discus throw, pole vault, javelin throw, and 1,500-meter run for the second day. To determine an overall winner, the International Association of Athletics Federations sets a table to convert performance in each event to a score, and the athlete with the highest sum of all ten scores is the winner. The table is updated periodically to keep up with new world records in each event, which can have interesting effects on previous scores—a 1985 revision of the table bumped up British decathlete Daley Thompson's score from the previous year, causing him to break the world record retrospectively.

The short answer is moisture. Specifically, the moisture that comes from perspiration can cause your pillow to become discolored. A compound found in sweat called urea is often responsible for those unsightly stains. Other moist culprits of pillow stains can include saliva, lying down with wet hair, and chemicals in certain types of makeup.

The reason sloths move so slowly is because they are trying to conserve energy. Their herbivorous diet consists mostly of leaves, meaning it does not offer the benefit of fats or protein. This lack of nutrition leaves them without much energy (or desire) to move around. On average, a sloth will travel less than 125 feet per day, and it can take them up to a full minute to move just a foot.

It’s surprisingly easy for journalists in Florida to get access to police incident reports due to the state’s strong public records laws. "Florida has got one of the broadest public records laws in the country," Barbara Petersen, president of Florida's First Amendment Foundation, told CNN. "As soon as that incident report is filed (by law enforcement), we can go and make a public record request and get it." Other theories for why such an abundance of unbelievable stories surface in Florida include its large, diverse population, its year-round hot and sunny weather conditions, and its lack of adequate mental health funding.

The eight Ivy League schools are: Brown University (Providence, Rhode Island) Columbia University (New York City) Cornell University (Ithaca, New York) Dartmouth College (Hanover, New Hampshire) Harvard University (Cambridge, Massachusetts) University of Pennsylvania (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) Princeton University (Princeton, New Jersey) Yale University (New Haven, Connecticut) The Ivy League was established in 1954 as an athletic conference, so even though each of the eight schools has a long and distinguished history, the distinction doesn't necessarily have anything to do with academics.

There's a widespread belief that dogs only see in black and white, but that's just not true—they can see some colors. Structures in the eyes called cones are what allow us to see color, and most humans have three types of cones; dogs, however, only have two—they lack red-green cones and therefore can't really see those colors. They likely appear gray or brown. As for why that is, dogs' vision evolved to be optimized for hunting in low light, meaning their night vision is ultimately more important than their color vision.

The substance that would come to be known as Play-Doh was originally sold by a company called Kutol as a wallpaper cleaner. But walls in the 1950s were a lot less sooty than they had been in 1912, when the company was founded—coal's popularity was declining, and sales of the wallpaper cleaner were slumping. Kay Zufall, a teacher who happened to be the sister-in-law of one of Kutol's big wigs, came up with the idea of letting kids play with the stuff, and it was a big hit. Play-Doh hit the toy market in 1956, and it's become a phenomenon, having sold 3 billion cans since that debut. It's so iconic it even got its own perfume.

The Bastille was a prison and fortress built in the 14th century to protect Paris's eastern entrance. At the height of its use, it held political prisoners, but by 1789, it was mostly vacant except for supplies like gunpowder. In fact, the Bastille was supposed to be demolished and replaced with a town square. Revolutionaries had other ideas, though—they wanted to get at that gunpowder, so they stormed the Bastille on July 14, 1789, losing about 100 people in the process. However, they ended up winning the day and proceeded to execute the Bastille's governor and dismantle the building entirely. Interestingly enough, they don't even call it Bastille Day in France—they use la Fête nationale or le 14 juillet.

The complete digitalization of books. The textbook industry in the United States is a massive scam, as they barely change anything between editions that can end up costing students hundreds of dollars per new book! It's also made worse when courses require these new editions over old ones, making the barrier for entry based mostly on an individual's economic status. Access to these types of resources should not only be free, but made easily available via technology.

No—in fact, the CDC encourages avoiding all water in your house during a thunderstorm. Your plumbing and the water coming out of it can conduct electricity if lightning strikes your home, and that can lead to you getting seriously hurt. Granted, this is a pretty rare occurrence, but experts still advise against it as an easy way to avoid something potentially fatal. You should wait half an hour after hearing the last boom of thunder before hopping into the shower.

It's not. The "Big Ben" moniker technically refers to the bell inside the clock tower—the tower itself is officially called Elizabeth Tower, in honor of Queen Elizabeth II. The bell was installed in 1858 and was probably named after Sir Benjamin Hall, a civil engineer and member of the House of Commons whose name is inscribed on the bell. There is a less likely theory that the bell was named after Ben Caunt, a bare-knuckle boxing champion who went by "Big Ben." Though this theory is a lot more fun, it can't be proven.

Well, they do eventually, when they’re done doing their jobs. If defunct satellites don’t burn up on their way down, they usually land in the ocean or somewhere else away from civilization. As for why that doesn't happen immediately, it's science, baby. Satellites are launched into space by rockets, and even though the force of gravity pulls on them, the initial velocity from the rocket is enough to counteract gravity's pull. The closer the satellite is to Earth, the faster it needs to go to stay in orbit. Sometimes they need to change orbit to avoid bumping into another satellite or other space debris, but once they're out there, satellites can stay in orbit for hundreds of years.

Panama hats do not, in fact, come from Panama. Shocking, I know. They are, and always have been, woven in Ecuador. However, they only gained worldwide popularity when they were exported to Panama. Gold Rush travelers on their way to the mines in California picked up the delicately woven hats as they passed through Panama, and the misleading name was born.

Not my story, but my sister and cousin once ditched our other cousin's wedding reception because it was dry (as in, no alcohol), and crashed another newlywed couple's reception on the next floor up of the event space we were in. They just kinda lurked around, and even ended up in the background of some official wedding photos!

Joe Biden is currently on his third presidential run. His first attempt to make it to the White House started in 1987, but he dropped out after a few months. He decided to try again 20 years later, but of course, he ended up Barack Obama's running mate in 2008 and subsequently served two terms as Vice President. That takes us to this year, 2020, where he's the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee. Although Biden considered running in 1980, 1984, and 2004, he did not actually launch a campaign in any of those years.
