Why do we feel sleepy after lunch? In fact, it is after food. It is all because of the food digestion process in our body and it takes up a lot of energy from us.

Pareto Principle or the 80/20 rule by economist Vilfredo Pareto who states that, for many events, roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes.
With the same principle, 20% of the words in the book are called the keyword (nouns, verbs, adverbs, adjective) which give 100% of the meaning. The 80% non-keywords which contain 0% of the meaning. Non-keywords are the connecting words used to connect the keywords together.Continue reading
