Things you probably didn’t know about the coffee.

How many people like to start their day with coffee? Did you know that your body doesn’t really need it? Today, it is the first thing many people drink in the morning.
You may think people are the only ones who like coffee. However, honeybees also love coffee as much as we do. But watch out, coffee is dangerous for animals like monkeys, cats, and even dogs.
Coffee contains caffeine which is a stimulant. It is known to increase attention, alertness and memory. It can improove your mood, stimulate brain function and decrease the chances of suffering from depression. That is probably why astronauts use a special cup to drink coffee in space. But be careful, It is never a substitute for sleep.

Good lecture

Percy Spence was working as a researcher for the American Appliance Company, when he noticed that a device using electromagnetic waves melted a candy bar in his pocket. He had the idea to make a metal box using microwaves to heat food, but the company had the patent. It isn’t fair, is it?
That was in 1945, and he received a $2 bonus but never any royalties.
Today, we use microwaves to quickly heat water, cook food, and even make popcorn

  • Commas for Lists: use commas to separate items in a list.
    Examples:
    “We have a marine museum, a few parks, and many colonial homes, which are all part of the historic center.”
    “Today, we use microwaves to quickly heat water, cook food, and even make popcorn.”

  • Commas with Conjunctions: Use a comma before a coordinating conjunction (“and”, “but”, “if”, “so”,“therefore” or “however”) when it joins two independent clauses (complete sentences).
    Example:
    “He had the idea to make a metal box using microwaves to heat food, but the company had the patent.”

  • Commas for Extra Information: Place a comma before relative pronouns (“who”, “where”, “when”) when introducing additional, non-essential information.
    Examples:
    “I am a tour guide coordinator in charge of five more guides, who, like me, love history and working with people.”
    “Percy Spencer was working as a researcher for the American Appliance Company, when he noticed that a device using electromagnetic waves melted a candy bar in his pocket.”

  • Commas for Expressing Emotion: use commas to set off words or phrases that express emotion or emphasis.
    Examples:
    “Learning about new places is great, isn’t it?”
    “It isn’t fair, is it?”

A weekend in a small town
I am a tourist guide, who lives in a small town in Southern France. One of my main roles, is to share the beautiful sights our town has to offer. We have a marine museum, a few parks, and many colonial homes, which are all part of the historical center.
If schools visit our town, I am the guide that shows them around. On the weekends, I am a tour guide coordinator in charge of five more guides, who like me love history and working with people.
Learning about new places is great, isn’t it? So, we hope you can visit us soon.
