One of the latest trends going around is vaping. For those who haven’t heard of the term, vaping is the practice of inhaling water vapor into the lungs. This is often done through the use of an electronic cigarette (e-cig). The e-cig is has a cartridge that is filled with a liquid of the user’s choice. The e-cig heats the liquid, vaporizing it so that the user can inhale it.

Consequences of annoying calls

Cell phones have made communication very easy since their creation. Before, the only times when people could use phones were when they found one mounted to a wall. Nowadays, everyone walks around with a phone in their pockets. Staying in touch with loved ones has never been easier.

Unfortunately, there is a drawback to this. Not only is it easier for a person to contact whoever they want, it is easier for others to reach that particular person. This is both a blessing and a curse. Just ask anyone who has ever found themselves in the unfortunate position of having their phone number on a telemarketer’s list.

What some Californians are not aware of, is the fact that making annoying phone calls can be considered a crime in the state...

Everyone has different feeling about driving. For some people, driving just means dealing with traffic and other drivers. For others, driving is all about freedom and having fun. Regardless of how a person feels about the task, driving is a great way to get wherever a person needs to be. Unfortunately, owning a car can be very costly.

Cars alone are not cheap, plus the gas they need to run, and all of the maintenance they need throughout their life. This high cost of ownership can prevent some people from being able to own a car for themselves. While this isn’t a problem for most people, since public transportation is usually available, others do have trouble not owning a car. They love to drive, and so they may decide to “borrow” someone else’s car...

However, they can be a bit expensive and, for those who are trying to go green, these modes of transit aren’t very environmentally friendly.

This has led to a rise in a new mode of transportation in cities, rentable electric scooters...

As an adult, people have the freedom to go wherever they want whenever they want. However, it can be easy to forget that people aren’t allowed in every space, even if they want to be there. This is definitely the case for private property, where people need to get permission from the property owner to be on the premises.

What many people do not realize, is that many public places are considered private property. A perfect example of this would be a grocery store. The store owner either owns the building, or rents it from someone. Either way, they have the right to choose who can enter their building because even though it is a public area, it is privately owned.

As with most people, many property owners want to protect their property...

children answering the door

The front door to a home is a portal to safety for many people. Once a person is home, they no longer have to worry about people or the outside world. They are in their own personal kingdom. They make the rules, and get to do whatever they want. A person’s home is their sanctuary, which is why people are often very selective of who they allow through the front door.

Exhausted homeowners may not want to deal with whoever may be knocking on their door. While rare, it could be a pushy salesperson trying to sell some product that the person doesn’t want or need. Dealing with that is not fun. However, maybe the person’s child may want to open the door. At what age should a child be allowed to do that?
