Toothpaste – a regular product that we all have at home without spending too much time thinking about it. Because well, whichever one you prefer, they’re all the same right?

There are so any different types of toothpaste in the world; whitening toothpaste, anti-cavity toothpaste, toothpaste for sensitive teeth.. you name it! It’s understandable that all these options make it pretty hard to make a good decision.

That is why most of us buy all-in-one toothpaste. You know the ones that are supposed to take care of all of our dental problems at ones. However, did you ever notice that those tubes have a black square on the back? And that is not actually a good thing… Perhaps you may have already noticed that every tube of toothpaste has a colored square on the back. This square can be green, blue, red or black. These colors represent the ingredients that the toothpaste is made out of.

What color is on your tube of toothpaste?

 

Green square: Do you see a green square on your toothpaste? Then lucky you, that means you’re using a toothpaste that is completely natural!

Blue square: If you see a blue square, that is still good because that means that you’ll find both natural and chemical ingredients in your toothpaste.

Red square: When you see a red square on the back, we have less good news for you because that means your toothpaste is made out of lots of chemicals and as you might suspect that isn’t really good for you teeth.

Black square: The worst type of toothpaste you can use is the one with a black square. These toothpastes are purely made out of chemicals that can really damage your teeth overtime.

So, the best toothpaste you can use to take care of your teeth is the one with a green or blue square on the back! Did you know about this? What color do you find on the back of your toothpaste? Share this article with your friends and family to let them know about this.

KFC Shuts more store in chicken crisis

Delivery problems will mean some KFC outlets will remain closed for the rest of the week, while others will have a reduced menu or shortened hours.

About half the fast food chain’s 900 outlets in its UK-based division were still closed on Tuesday night.

That was fewer than the 575 closed as of Monday evening.

Last week the fried chicken chain switched its delivery contract to DHL, which has blamed “operational issues” for the supply disruption.

Earlier, a KFC spokesperson expected the number of closures to fall in the coming coming days as teams “work flat-out all hours to clear the backlog”.

“Each day more deliveries are being made. However, we expect the disruption to some restaurants to continue over the remainder of the week, meaning some will be closed and others operating with a reduced menu or shortened hours.”

DHL’s managing director of retail, John Boulter, said the delivery firm regretted the “interruption of supply” and apologised for the “inconvenience and disappointment caused to KFC and their customers”.

“The reasons for this unforeseen interruption of this complex service are being worked on with a goal to return to normal service levels as soon as possible,” he added.

“We are committed to step-by-step improvements to allow KFC to reopen its stores over the coming days.”

KFC has set up a web page where customers can find their nearest outlet that is open.

What caused the problems?

Until 13 February, KFC’s chicken was delivered by specialist food distribution group Bidvest.

But after the contract switched to DHL, many of the food giant’s outlets began running out of chicken products.

The GMB union said it had warned KFC that switching from Bidvest to DHL was a mistake. The change led to 255 job losses and the closure of a Bidvest depot, said Mick Rix, GMB national officer.

“Bidvest are specialists – a food distribution firm with years of experience. DHL are scratching around for any work they can get, and undercut them,” he said.

“KFC are left with hundreds of restaurants closed while DHL try and run the whole operation out of one distribution centre. Three weeks ago, KFC knew they had made a terrible mistake, but by then it was too late.”

The distribution network uses software developed by the firm Quick Service Logistics (QSL).

DHL said: “Due to operational issues, a number of deliveries in recent days have been incomplete or delayed. We are working with our partners, KFC and QSL, to rectify the situation as a priority and apologise for any inconvenience.”

A KFC spokesperson said the decision to change supplier had not been taken lightly.

“DHL have estimated that winning the KFC contract and opening the new distribution centre has created 300 new jobs,” he added.

How much is it likely to cost KFC?

KFC’s spokesman said he did not have a figure, but any calculation is likely to be complicated by the fact that 95% of KFC’s outlets in the UK are run by franchisees.

Some media reports say the crisis could be costing the chain £1m a day, but any such figure is likely to be guesswork.

What’s happening to KFC staff?

Workers are being encouraged to take holiday, but would not be forced to do so, the company has said.

It said that in the restaurants owned by the chain, staff on short-term contracts would be paid the average hours worked per day over the past 12 weeks, while those on salaries would be paid as normal.

“Franchisees will be seeking their own independent advice, but we’re encouraging them to adopt this policy too,” said the chain.

A KFC worker in London who contacted the BBC said he had not received any shifts for the past week.

“This problem isn’t our fault, but we are the ones who can’t work.

“I have got bills that come out of my account on Friday and I feel terrible about the whole situation. I am looking for a new job,” he said.

How to Act Around Your Ex

Break-ups rarely lead to what the name promises—a clean break. Much as you may wish to avoid it, there will be situations in which you have to be around your ex. It can be difficult to interact with someone you used to be close to, but there are ways to make it less painful.
1. Be patient.
You’re used to being emotionally and physically intimate with each other, so don’t expect to establish new relationship patterns right away.
  1. Don’t seek your ex out socially, especially at first. Experts recommend taking at least eight weeks without any sort of contact. Seeing your ex right after the breakup can make it more difficult to move on.

Seeing Your Ex Socially

2. Treat your ex as you would treat a colleague.

Be friendly and respectful without indicating too much closeness.

Keep your interactions light. Especially if you have not seen each other in a while, resist the urge to address long-simmering relationship issues

– Him: I did. They need new management.

– You: The relief pitcher looked pretty good. Maybe he should have started.

– Him: Yeah, I didn’t understand that decision.

– You: Well, good seeing you. Hopefully they make it to the post-season.

If your ex brings up a contentious issue, try changing the subject to something you agree on.

– Him: Hi, Melanie. Did you try the pierogies?

– You: I did. They remind me of the ones your mom always made.

– Him: How would you know? You never went to visit her.

– You: I think we both appreciated her cooking.

– Him: That’s true.

3. Avoid alcohol.

Emotions will already be riding high. If you’re drinking, you’ll be less inhibited and more likely to say something that you’ll regret.

4. Disengage from your ex online.

Unfriend him on Facebook and avoid him on other forms of social media. Yes, keeping tabs on an ex online is tempting—you want to know if he is miserable without you, if he has started dating someone new, etc. Research shows that it is better to avoid this temptation, though.

  – It’s easy for these behaviors to get obsessive, turning into what psychologists call “interpersonal electronic surveillance” and the rest of us call Facebook stalking.

– It’s also bad for your own emotional health. Like seeing your ex in person, interacting with him online can make the heartbreak last longer.

 – If you do insist on continuing to follow your ex on social media, remember that what you are seeing is a highly selective view of his life. Don’t think that you’re struggling more than he is just because he doesn’t post about it.

5. Tread cautiously when trying to be friends.

Many people want to stay friends after a breakup, which makes sense—you enjoyed being around your ex at one point, and he was a large part of your social life. Why shouldn’t you continue to act as you did before, going to baseball games together, calling him to vent about your boss, or asking for his jacket when you get cold? Plenty of reasons, it turns out.

– Maintain physical and emotional distance to avoid ambiguity. Behaviors like flirting and touching can cause confusion for both of you.

– Limit your interactions. You shouldn’t be checking in multiple times a day, or even once every day. It’s fine to be friends, but your ex should not be the person you turn to first with good or bad news.

 – You should not pursue a friendship with your ex as a guise for trying to get him back. If you want to rekindle the romance and he does not, you are better off cutting off contact entirely.

6. Don’t let your relationship affect special occasions.

With overlapping social circles, you and your ex will likely run into each other at special occasions including birthday parties, graduations, and weddings, probably for years to come. Be prepared for this inevitability. 

  1. Don’t ignore each other at big events, but don’t sit together, either. If you’re not on the best terms, you run the risk of making a scene. Plus, don’t want to have to answer questions all night long about whether you two are back together.
  2. Divide up smaller events. You can both go to your friend’s play, but you might not both want to go to the intimate dinner she’s having afterward. No one likes to miss out on fun events, but it can be preferable to the alternative of a huge confrontation.

7 Ways for Dads to Strengthen Their Relationship With Their Daughters

While fathers certainly love all their children, it sure seems that more dads spend a lot more time with their sons. Perhaps they think that they have more in common with their boys, or maybe they are a little intimidated by the girls.

The Benefits of Father-Daughter Relationships

But with a little more understanding, fathers can feel just as comfortable around their daughters as they do their sons.

It is certainly important for fathers to connect with their daughters. Family research suggests that daughters who have secure and loving relationships with their fathers:

  • Have better grades in school
  • Feel better about themselves
  • Are more assertive without being aggressive
  • Feel more confident in relationships with men in general
  • Are more likely to be admitted to graduate school and get a degree.

Having a daughter with those attitudes and directions is worth a lot to a father. But in addition to the lifelong positives of a good father-daughter relationship, nurturing that kind of relationship can be a real opportunity for a father in the here and now.

So what can a father do to create a loving and secure relationship with his daughter?

Start on Her Birthday

Fathers who best create this positive relationship start on the day she is born. Get involved in her life from the very outset. Take an active role in caring for this baby girl.

 The more time you spend with her earlier, the easier it will be to continue building the relationship later.

Teach Her New Things

While it is great when a dad teaches his daughter to ride a bike or to read or do chores, often the best things he can teach her are “guy things.” Skills like fixing a car, fishing, golfing, or home repairs will serve a girl just as well as a boy and will give her confidence that she can tackle anything.

Just being with her dad doing things he is good at will be a real treat for her.

Listen Lots

Many of our daughters love to talk and girls tend to vocalize more than the boys do growing up. What a dad can do to build his relationship with his daughter is to listen more. Pay attention to what she says when you are together. Listen to what she is thinking, dreaming and wishing in her life. And most of all, keep confidences. When she shares something with you that is private and bares her soul, don’t repeat the story. It is one sure way to hurt your relationship when you violate a trust.

Make Time For Fun

It’s important to make daddy/daughter dates. We suggest checking out the latest toys at the toy store or go out for an ice cream treat. Do things together that are fun and entertaining such as miniature golfing, hiking, swimming, going to library story time and going to plays. Building fun memories in a positive environment can make a big difference.

Tell Her She’s Beautiful

This will sound a little corny to some fathers, but it is important. Modern culture and the media often give our daughters messages that they need to be the right weight, wear the right makeup, dress stylishly and sometimes immodestly to be beautiful.

When you tell your daughter she is beautiful, emphasize the importance of being beautiful inside – more than skin-deep. Compliment her when her eyes sparkle or when she breaks into a big smile.

Write Notes and Letters

You may remember from your dating years that girls love cards and notes and letters. Take the time occasionally to write your daughter a letter expressing your feelings, letting her know how you feel about her and how proud you are of her. These little personal expressions mean and lot to our daughters and are a good way of showing love.

Be a Great Example of Manhood

The way your daughter sees you treat women makes a big difference in how she will see ​men later in her life. Be on your best behavior with her, her mother and other female friends and relatives. Simple courtesy and kindness will go a long way in helping her know what to expect of men in her later life.​

Making time and expending energy in building your relationship with your daughter will pay big dividends over time. Even though it may seem like more fun to spend time with the boys, there is still nothing quite like the relationship that can develop between a daughter and her daddy.
