Lets face it, Google is helpful. I sometimes ponder about life before Google, about those arguments with friends that used to last days or those pub quizzes where only the geography buff knew the capital of Indonesia. Google is something familiar, a way of life (of sorts) and having great search skills can really open you up to a universe of useful and useless information.
Here are some things you might not have known Google can do.
1. Google is a translator
2. Google is a currency converter
3. Google is a calculator
4. Google is a Weight converter
5. Google is a timer
Did you know there is a hidden game inside Google called “ZERG RUSH”?
Search Zerg rush in Google to start a hidden game, quickly click the incoming 0’s to kill them before they destroy your search results.
Google will also tell you what time sunrise is at!
So there you have it, some things to explore in your next searches. Remember, there is a universe of information out there and your search engine is your vehicle. Learning how to correctly search and developing your search skills will greatly increase your chances of finding the information you want.

Today my 5 tips are aimed toward using the microwave.
Over 90% of food poising cases occur at home, one of the contributing factors to this is improper use of the microwave. The heating of food in the microwave is a cause of major concern in Ireland.
Read the instructions on the packet. This is the first and most important step. We need to know whether the food needs to be cooked completely or just reheated, whether it can be cooked in a microwave or needs a conventional oven, cooking time and wattage. (generally your wattage is displayed on your microwave, if not consult the manual.)
To make best use of the microwave and to heat the food properly and evenly, heat your food in short bursts. For instance if the packet says 4 mins, put in for 2.
Make sure to take the product out and stir it thouroughly.
Put the product back in for the rest of the time needed.
5.Let it stand
Once the product is thouroughly heated through, leave it stand for 1 minute before consuming.
