Just some random things that interest me!

Cocktail Attire

Cocktail attire is what is typically worn to an event that is semi-formal – not completely formal but also not casual. For men, cocktail attire may be a suit with or without a tie, a sports coat, or a collared dress shirt. For women, cocktail attire is often a cocktail dress, which is typically a knee-length, solid color dress worn with a jacket or sweater.

What is Glycerin?

Glycerin is a natural by-product that is commonly used in beauty products. It is a thick, colorless liquid that has a sweet taste. Commonly, glycerin is used in things like soap and lotions because it is a humectant, meaning it can help to seal in moisture.

Cortisone Cream

Cortisone cream is a topical ointment used to reduce inflammation and relieve itchy. It is commonly used in conditions such as eczema, arthritis, psoriasis, diaper rash, or poison ivy. This ointment is available in prescription and over the counter forms.

Pleather

Pleather is a form of imitation leather made out of polyurethane, or plastic. Pleather is used in place of leather in many fashion items such as jackets, purses, or pants. Pleather can be easily dyed, unlike leather, so it can come in many different colors or patterns.

Nubuck

Nubuck is a type of leather that comes from cattle. It is one of the most durable leathers available and it has a very soft feel to it because it is sanded. It is similar to suede, although it is more durable and lasts longer. Nubuck is often used in furniture, shoes, purses, and clothing items.

Lymphatic Drainage

Lymphatic drainage is a process carried out naturally by the human body’s lymphatic system. The drainage will move a clear fluid from the lymph nodes so the body can be healthy. If a person does not have functioning lymphatic drainage due to a condition like lymphoma, they can receive treatment and massages that help drain the lymph nodes manually.

Mechanical Digestion

Mechanical digestion is when food is broken down through physical means such as chewing. Mechanical digestion prepares the food that we eat for chemical digestion in the stomach. Chewing thoroughly ensures that food is more easily digested in the stomach.

What is a GSM Phone?

A GSM phone is a type of mobile phone that uses the Global System for Mobile Communications. GSM phones are a good choice for people who often change phones or carriers, as they use a SIM card which allows someone to transfer their data instantly. GSM phones may also have a clearer signal when  making calls.

What is a Proton?

A proton, along with a neuron, makes up the nucleus of an atom. A proton is stable and subatomic, and it will have a positive charge.  The proton is thought to have been discovered by Ernest Rutherford and theorized by William Prout.
