How Long Will You Live? Check the Strength of Your Handshake

Whenever I meet another guy, I always make sure that my handshake is firm and assertive, just like my dad taught me.  Most men were raised to give a firm handshake when meeting someone.  A firm handshake means that you're a "man," and that you mean what you say and stand for something.  A firm handshake gains immediate respect, while a limp hand places you in a submissive position.  Now, a firm handshake may mean more than that.

New Cell Phone Battery May Change Recharging Forever

Jenny and Emily typically set their cell phones on the kitchen counter each evening when going to bed and let them recharge overnight.  Why?  That's a convenient time to charge them, especially considering it takes an hour or two for the batteries to recharge.  When your cell phone is almost completely drained, do find that you have to wait for an hour or two for the battery to recharge?  This is a common situation for most people, but this may be changing soon.  New technology may be on the way.
