6:15 I was recently trying on some clothes...I was pissed because it should have been the right size but NOOOOO, the clothing designer made it much smaller than the it usually runs. I was pissed. I feel like trying on clothes is such an ordeal sometimes and this is why. Clothing designers make you feel like a cow whne they make most clothes small. It's funny that I had that experience because then, I saw this: (someone made me feel very validated with this)...
Clothing Designers Make Me Feel Fat When I'm Not
I am a size 12, two whole sizes below today's national average woman, and yet when I'm trying on clothing in stores, the size Large isn't big enough. Clothing sizes, especially in high-end stores, are just not realistic! Statistically, only eight percent of modern women have figures like Hollywood's leading ladies, so what we're seeing in movies and on TV is the exception and not the rule. I'm so frustrated! When will today's designers cater to the us real women and quit making us feel fat! (dailym.ai/VH1eSs)
7:15- Kids' Early Drawings May Predict Later Intelligence
How much of your kid's art hangs on your fridge? New data finds that some of those scribbles could be telling of your child's intelligence. Researchers looked at nearly 8,000 pairs of twins, and asked the four-year-olds to draw a picture of a child. They found that the more accurate and detailed a drawing the kid produced, the higher his or her intelligence level was at age 14. Researchers judged the quality of the drawings based on the amount of detail added, not on aesthetics. Study author Dr. Rosalind Arden explains, saying, "Through drawing, we are attempting to show someone else what's in our mind. This capacity to reproduce figures is a uniquely human ability and a sign of cognitive ability..." Arden added that parents shouldn't worry if their child draws badly, saying "drawing ability does not determine intelligence, there are countless factors...which affect intelligence in later life."

A Surefire Way to Maximize Your Work Productivity
Give yourself a break at work, literally, if you want to be the best possible worker.
That’s the advice of Julia Gifford, whose Latvian-based Draugiem Group is an umbrella organization for many IT-related companies.
Using the time tracking app DeskTime, Gifford says the best formula for maximizing your time on the job is 52 and 17: that’s 52 minutes of full-steam-ahead work followed by a 17-minute break or “recuperation,” as she puts it.
According to Gifford, it’s not about working longer, it’s about working smarter with frequent breaks.
During those 52 minutes, the most productive employees work with purpose and take a well-deserved break so they can hit the ground running again in what Gifford labels “the 100 percent dedication theory.”
