Phoenix Zoo a Hotbed of Pokémon Activity

The Phoenix Zoo is home not only to numerous exotic and endangered animals, but a host of ducks, geese, lizards, rabbits and quail also live among the park's amazing horticulture. Early Monday morning, however, zookeepers and staff arrived to learn some slightly unusual creatures have decided to call the Phoenix Zoo home.

"Pokémon are here," Phoenix Zoo President & CEO Bert Castro stated. "We're excited to learn that the Zoo has so many hotspots for those playing the Pokémon GO game."

With just over 30 PokeStops, the Zoo is a hotbed of Pokémon activity and a fantastic spot for gamers to collect items, experience points and Poke Eggs. A Poke gym located inside the orangutan bilik offers a cool spot to train.

To recognize these new residents, and help beat the heat, the Zoo will open an hour early next week (July 17 - 23). Both members and general admission guests can enjoy catching, training, and socializing starting at 6 a.m. Zoo staff will set lures to attract Pokémon to specific areas so that guests may catch as many as possible during their visit. Costumed Pokémon mascots will be on site greeting visitors on Saturday, July 23. Guests are encouraged to share their favorite photos of Pokémon at the Zoo for an opportunity to have their photo included in an online gallery.

Teens & Money

Saving vs. Investing
The first thing you want to teach your teens is that spending is the anti-saving.  It can be enticing to spend money on the latest trends, but teach them to evaluate each purchase.  If they have a job help them understand how many hours they will have to work to pay off their purchase.  
Investment Tools: Teach your kids how to invest.

Queen of Clean: The Amazing Clean Properties of Hydrogen Peroxide

Hydrogen peroxide is a fantastic cleaner and disinfectant for household use.  It has the ability to quickly kill bacteria.  After being used for cleaning and coming into contact with light and air, peroxide will decompose turning into simple water and oxygen.  It leaves no harmful or toxic residue behind as do most disinfectants.  

An important thing to remember is that hydrogen peroxide breaks down in light.  That's why it comes in the brown bottle.  When you make cleaners with it, use only opaque bottles or the brown one it comes in, not clear bottles.  Do not sit it on a window sill or in the sun. 

Here's some easy ways to start using this miracle cleaner in your home. A note:  we are using regular drug store variety 3% hydrogen peroxide in all these formulas.  

Anti-Bacterial Spray
Empty a bottle of 3% hydrogen peroxide into an unused opaque spray bottle or attach a sprayer to the peroxide bottle.  Use the spray straight and undiluted as an anti-bacterial spray for counters in bath and kitchen, door knobs, light switches, toilet seats, etc.  Just the spray of the solution on the area to be cleaned and wipe with a paper towel or cloth.  

Glass and Window Cleaner
Mix 2-1/2 cups of hydrogen peroxide into 1 gallon of tap water.  Add 2 or 3 teaspoons of your favorite dish soap and mix.  Pour, as needed, into a spray bottle.  Spray and wipe.

General Daily Countertop Cleaning
Fill a spray bottle with a 50/50 solution of water and hydrogen peroxide.  Use as a spray and wipe cleaner.

To Disinfect Counters and Cutting Boards
Prepare 2 bottles of cleaner, one with hydrogen peroxide and the other with white vinegar. Spray the vinegar over areas to disinfect.  Follow with a spray and wipe of hydrogen peroxide.  After washing cutting boards with hot soapy water, spray with hydrogen peroxide to disinfect.  Simply spray and let dry.

Dish Cloths and Sponges
Soak or heavily spray a dishcloth or sponge in hydrogen peroxide to clean and disinfect. 

Plastic Water Bottles
Clean, sanitize and remove odors from water bottles with half water and half hydrogen peroxide.  Fill and let sit for a few hours, then rinse.

Undiluted peroxide is a great spray and wipe for refrigerators.

Fruits and Vegetables
Spray with hydrogen peroxide and rinse to remove germs, insecticides and pesticides.  Remove wax from the outside of fruits and vegetables by soaking in a sink of cold water and about ½ cup of peroxide. Soak about 15 minutes and then rinse and dry. 

Clean the inside of the microwave by squirting with hydrogen peroxide and wiping.
NOTE:  You may want to wear rubber gloves when using peroxide because it can turn the skin on fingertips white.  If so, simple wash and dry and apply lotion.

Scott Keppel: Cardio VS Weight Lifting, which one is the best for long term fat loss?

Cardio is a great way to strengthen our cardiovascular systems and burn more calories in a session.

Weight Lifting-builds lean muscle which in the long run burns more calories
1 lb of fat burns approx. 8 calories a day, 1 lb of muscle can burn up to 4x's the amount of calories

Instead of one vs the other, I suggest you combine the two for optimal results 
Super setting, giant sets, incorporating cardio throughout your lifting session are ways to get weight training and cardio in efficiently

Naturally, that hasn't kept his friends from calling him"Roc" ever since! When the moment later presented itself to brand himself as a celebrity chef, the choice was easy
