For those who work in manual labor jobs such as construction, high-visibility clothing is not only a safety precaution but a necessity. Workers can easily go unnoticed by moving vehicles and machinery, which can lead to work injuries or even death. 4,836 workers were killed in work-related accidents in 2015 alone and, in 2014, workers in their late teens missed an average of four work days because of a work-related injury.

Providing workers with contrasting apparel such as reflective pants, cargo work pants with reflective tape, high visibility t shirts, high visibility winter jackets, or a fluorescent vest will make them more visib

5 Fun Facts About Watches That You Probably Didn’t Know

Written by Shopping Magazine on May 5, 2017. Posted in Uncategorized

wood watches for menWhile timekeeping has been around for thousands of years, it wasn’t until 1868 that Patek Phillipe developed the very first wristwatch. The “Platinum Perpetual Calendar Wristwatch” sold for approximately $3.1 million in May 2008.

It is safe to say that watches are pretty important both as timekeeping devices and fashion statements. But even though you might pride yourself on your all wood watch, there’s probably a lot you still don’t know about the fascinating world of watches. Here are a few fun facts about wooden wrist watches and other timekeeping pieces that you might not have thought about before.

Alarm Watches
The first wristwatch with an alarm function built into it wasn’t developed until the 1900s. A Swiss company called Eterna was the very first watch making business in the world to produce such a thing. Full-scale production began in 1914.

World War II
While WWI started to leave pocket watches behind, it was WWII that effectively eliminated them as a fashion trend. During the second World War, soldiers were forbidden to wear any timekeeping piece that wasn’t a wristwatch. Of course, wood watches for men weren’t really an option back then, but the wooden wrist watches then certainly paved the way for modern natural wood watches.

Stanley Kubrick
Rather than use fake props, Kubrick actually approached a watch making company, Hamilton, to make digital timepieces for his film “2001: A Space Odyssey.” Although an electric watch had already been introduced, this paved the way for the first LED displays on watch faces.

Intended for Women
While men were using the pocket watch, wrist watches were originally developed for women of nobility. Queen Elizabeth I and many other royal women were known to have “arm watches.”

Watch Displays
Did you know that watches are typically displayed to show a certain time? Many watch displays have the timepieces set to ten minutes to 2:00, also known as “Happy Time” as the watch hands make a smile. So next time you’re searching for wood watches for men or women, take note!

Whether you want stainless steel watches or Hawaiian wood watches, these facts should make your next shopping experience an interesting one!

    Charity donations

    So many of us in the Untied States do not even realize the amount of good we can actually do simply by spending a Saturday morning going through our closets and drawers and donating the clothing we no longer wear.

    We might go for months without even thinking about the extra clothing objects we have around our house. We put things in the attic or in the basement and forget about them. When we go through our things and find that we have plenty to give away, we might not think what we have is worth the trouble to even give away. So, we through our clothing and textiles into the trash, where it gets hauled away to the dump or landfill to be of no use whatsoever.

    What we do not often realize is just how important it can be to donate what we no longer have a use for. Clothing donations lead directly to support
