Things For Your Dad to do in San Diego

So your family’s going to San Diego, eh? Maybe your dad is excited but doesn’t really have much in common with the rest of you. (I imagine he looks something like this for the record.) I promise, no matter how out of this world he might seem, he’s not all that bad! He may not be into tanning, local shops, or local beer, but there’s plenty of things for your dad to do down in San Diego.

On the Beach

Two words: Metal Detector. Every dad loves a gizmo, and every dad loves finding new things. Plus, it’s a way for him to make money when he’s not at work. Beaches are notorious for dropped coins, and I bet, your dad being a dad and all, he already has a metal detector he can pack in the car on the way (if you are, in fact, driving and not flying). Will he get rich? No, but I bet you can keep him occupied while you’re tanning or swimming! This idea is gold, you’re welcome.

Sports & BBQ

I bet that if your dad wears hawaiian shirts, he likes barbecues. And I bet if he wears cargo shorts, he likes sports. So that’s double the chance he’ll like a sports & bbq restaurant! There’s several local ones around San Diego that I would recommend taking your pops to, and a simple google search will lead you there. The first is Phil’s BBQ Restaurant, on Sports Arena Blvd in San Diego. They have super high ratings, two dining areas, and a bar. There are over 10500 reviews for this place and the average is 4.5 stars. That may be a good place to start, and you can a tour of the place here.

USS Midway Museum

My father had a father who fought in WWII, and he himself was in the army. I’ve found a lot of people in similar situations, with family who was in the military and such. That’s why I recommend the USS Midway Museum, the longest serving Aircraft Carrier of the 20th Century. Admission is about $16 per person, which may seem like a lot but it’s pretty good for attractions down there. You can take flight simulations, watch active duty military ceremonies, simulate air combat, and see how things were operated on this ship when it was actually operating.

SeaWorld… The Water Park there!

All dads enjoy taking their kids swimming or to water parks. Turns out, the SeaWorld in San Diego has one. So while SeaWorld may only be entertaining for a small amount of time, you could probably get him to enjoy a longer day of rides with the family at SeaWorld’s water park. If he’s like my dad, he’ll sun screen up and encourage you to do the same, and then take you on the tallest, scariest rides he can find. This is total dad material. And water parks usually have hot dogs, burgers, and ice cream. Essentially, your dad is set at this place!

What else would your dad like? Let me know on Twitter @Robolitious.

You should wear rubber boots (and gloves) when using one of your appliances while standing and working on a wet area. Don’t forget to keep towels with you as well so you won’t become a conduit for the electric current.

Be wary of live wires

Live wires are another object that can definitely electrocute you. This is why you must always be wary of them.

Your family’s wellbeing should always come first, which is why you must follow these safety tips and avoid any issues you could possibly have with your electrical appliances!

The Pros and Cons: Hair Bleaching

Today’s market is filled with various cosmetic products for hair, face, and body. And people have a tendency to buy them out, unwilling to wait whether they really are worth all their efforts and money. Some of them don’t even bother to check out and read things like the best whitening soap review in Manila, which unfortunately results to them having regrets in the end.

But you can easily avoid it by doing some research before purchasing a product or try out a “beauty regimen.” For instance, before bleaching your hair, you might want to read how the process works and its pros and cons.

Here are some of them now to enlighten you:

Hair bleaching is usually being done when you want to color your hair. A number of people have decided to do this to their locks to achieve the following advantages:

  • Simplest way to lighten your hair color – There’s nothing wrong with having dark hair. But some people like to experiment and make them locks lighter from time to time. Essentially, they can only get this look through bleaching. If you are sick of your dark curls, you might want to try this out to give you something new.
  • More effective than DIY hair colors – DIY is short for do-it-yourself. DIY colors can be bought in numerous department stores and cosmetic shops. They usually offer you a chance to change your hair color in the comforts of your own homes – meaning you don’t have to visit the salon to do it. This option may be cheaper but is not often effective. If you really want to change your hair color, you will try bleaching them first.
  • Great for color transition – Colouring your hair is not an easy feat – as implied above – particularly if you have natural dark hair. The color you want to apply on your curls will hardly show because of your hair’s pigmentation. But you can easily remedy this by bleaching your hair first. This will enable your hair to become lighter and then show the color you currently want to wear, no matter how eccentric they are.

Cons of Hair Bleaching

Unfortunately, hair bleaching has some disadvantages as well. Here are 2 of them:

  • Hair damage – The primary thing you don’t want to achieve after bleaching your hair is the damage it will cause. Take note that this process is extremely harsh and can leave your curls looking weak, brittle, and dry. This means that if you often do it to your hair, it will ultimately seem like it was completely fried, which is why you must think twice before you do it to your locks.
  • Needs constant care and coloring – Bleaching will essentially weaken your hair, which means you would have to take extra care of it, if you want it to look at its best. You would need special shampoo, conditioners, and hair treatments in order to achieve that. Furthermore, you also have to color it as often as possible so that your natural dark hair won’t show on your roots.

Bleaching your hair has its pros and cons. Remember to think about it well before you go on about it. Keep in mind that the damage it brings to your locks may be irreversible!

Five Tips For First Time Travelers To Croatia

Croatian Coastal Architecture

Croatia is located between Central Europe, Southeast Europe, and the Mediterranean. This relatively small country is rather rich with natural wonders and long cultural heritage. So it’s no wonder that Croatia has seen significant influx of travelers in the past ten years. It is after all a peaceful and beautiful place with pleasant climate and plethora of attractions, so people from all around the globe are coming here in search for something new and exciting. If you are visiting Croatia for the first time this summer, we have prepared few useful tips that will help you during your stay.

Have The Cash Ready

City Of Split In Croatia

Let’s face the facts, Croatians just love to use cash. It’s not that card payments are not accepted, at the majority of places they are, but cash is always preferred method of payment. This sentiment is not something that’s unique only to Croatia. In fact, all neighboring countries in Balkan area of Europe share the same sentiment. It’s not entirely known why that is, but fair guess is that card payments were introduced to everyday use just some 10 years ago. Younger people and business owners haven’t had much of trouble embracing credit cards and that type of payment, but older generations – not so much. Also, people here don’t have much trust in banks and banking systems, and with everything considered, that’s not so unjustified.

Don’t Hesitate To Use English

You might be surprised how well people in Croatia actually speak English language. It’s a language that’s taught in more than 90% of Croatian schools from the very first grade. So asking younger generations for instructions and directions is pretty much a safe bet. And in case that they don’t know the answer to your questions, they will try and find someone else who does. This might seems strange, but people in Croatia are actually really approachable and have high level of hospitality. After all, you are a guest in their country and they want you to feel pleasant and welcomed. Especially if you are showing interest in learning more about local traditions and history.

Don’t Call It Yugoslavia

Croatian Coastal Architecture

Speaking of (recent) history, Croatia has gained independence from Yugoslavia in 1991. It was a long, thorny and painful process, and needless to say – Croatia is proud of it. So taking everything in consideration, Croats don’t have much love for their former country and don’t like to be remained of it either. But still, if you travel around the country you’ll be able to spot some of the old symbols of Yugoslavia, mostly in form of monuments and memorial boards on town squares, around museums and similar places.

Using Car Is Preferred Way Of Traveling

If there’s one thing that’s most inconvenient for tourists is Croatian infrastructure. Although Croatia is fairly small country, traveling around it is quite slow. Trains and buses can be sporadic, you most likely will have to improvise and combine both of those traveling methods to reach your destination. And for travelers, that’s kind of a deal breaker. Croatian government is aware of this problem, so is European Union, and in the next few years situation should be improved drastically. But for now, tourist (and locals) often rely on car rental services. Roads in Croatia are actually quite well maintained, so touring the country in a car is by far the best and fastest option, especially if you aren’t traveling alone. And who knows, maybe you’ll come across some lovely place you would have had missed otherwise.

Don’t Be Afraid Of Traveling By Boat

City Of Primosten In Croatia

As you may be aware, Croatia has a long coast on the Adriatic Sea and is a home to almost 2000 islands. And that’s an impressive number. Some of these islands are small and uninhabited, others are quite large and well populated, while few are used only as secluded beaches. So it would be shame to miss out on all that beauty. You can rent a boat in pretty much any place along the coast. Croatia is known as one of the most famous boat and ship building countries in the region, so you are pretty much guaranteed to get a well built vessel. And if you aren’t too confident to manage it by yourself, there’s always an option to get a good guide.

And there you have it, these are the basics that should cover you during your stay in this small European country. Be sure to explore and enjoy in everything it has to offer, and you will surely take some wonderful memories back home. Have fun!

Top 9 Causes of hair loss in men

Extreme stress usually sends the body into the situation of shock, which results in disturbing various hormones and metabolites. This may lead to shedding of hair known as telogen effluvium. While the effects of severe stress on hair are well understood, mostly this type of hair loss is long term.

This is the leading cause and we can’t do much to avoid it. Male pattern baldness, scientifically known as androgenetic alopecia, indicates to hair thinning in an “M-shaped” hair pattern that is usually mentioned when men talk about balding.
