Most people are aware that plastic grocery bags can be harmful to the environment and more and more shoppers are choosing not to use them. In fact, some countries have an outright ban on them – including Bangladesh and Rwanda. Other cities in England, India, Australia and Mexico have started to ban or tax them as well.

Markus Lattner believes when it comes to success in business, playing to one’s personal strengths is key. The first step, Markus Lattner says, is identifying exactly what those strengths are. For many, that self-knowledge only comes after decades in the workforce.
A quicker route to self-discovery, believes Markus Lattner, is in taking an unbiased assessment of your strengths. A number of books by Gallup are available which can be very helpful in pinpointing those strengths so that you can put them to work for you.

Individuals who consume a higher number of calories than their body burns off in a 24-hour period are subject to numerous health problems, says Garrett Hoelscher.

Occasional overindulgence isn’t the core issue. The problem, according to Garrett Hoelscher, is widespread chronic overeating and it is an issue that needs to be addressed starting now.
