There’s a giant 26-foot-tall Knife Angel sculpture in the UK, built entirely out of 100,000 donated knives. But besides the impressive statistics, it’s also a monument built out of morbid necessity to remember the victims fallen to the increasing knife violence in the United Kingdom and to finally acknowledge that there is a real problem.Show Full Text The angel’s creator, Alfie Radley, has spent two years designing and building the sculpture which features police donated knives that were actually used in violent crimes all over England and Wales, some of which even have the names of the victims engraved onto the blades.

Successful People Know When and What — to Give up and Move Forward

Productivity
“Never give up,” is a common piece of advice that we’re given when we’re facing difficulties.

The Anatomy of Procrastination

Productivity
By procrastinating, a person doesn’t know what they have done for around 218 minutes a day. In other words, more than 3 hours go missing every single day, and about 55 days — almost 2 months are lost every year.

We all procrastinate, and we procrastinate a lot. Even if you do make an effort to fight procrastination, the tide is against you. Modern Living Has Made It Even Easier to Procrastinate Not only is procrastination tough to beat – but it’s getting even tougher. The percentage of chronic procrastinators has grown from about 5 percent in 1978, to 26 percent in 2007, as shown in a study by Unive
