ThreeThingThursday 2/28

ThreeThingThursday is a weekly post detailing three random–yet interesting–tidbits of information that are new to me this week. Arbitrary as they may seem, sometimes it’s the smallest things that lead to the greatest inspirations!

[ONE]: Cure a cold, through your feet

Thanks to the recent roller coaster of winter weather Ohio has been graced with, this might just come in handy!

A nice home remedy for a chest cold: put a layer of Vick’s Vapor Rub on your feet before bed. And, probably, wear socks. Sounds skeptical–and kind of gross–but it has my sick roommate’s full endorsement!

[TWO]: Pinterest is going pro

Just when brands are mastering Pinterest, there’s a new player in the “creative social” game. The Matboard is “like pinterest for inspiring creative professionals,” according to Mashable.

The Matboard will follow the “pinning” concept, only with less clutter and even more visual appeal. But it’s going to take more differentiation than that alone to break my allegiance to Pinterest, for now.

[THREE]: Feel like you’re running in place?

In an otherwise brutally boring assigned Anthropology reading, a theory called the Red Queen Hypothesis caught my attention. To keep it short, sweet, and (most importantly) interesting, this evolutional theory states that we must constantly evolve only to keep up with an ever-changing environment.

Basically, this Alice in Wonderland-inspired hypothesis states that constant improvement only allows us to keep up–never to get ahead. (Endless applications, no?)
