“I made this tie for my dad when I was in 1st grade. 11 years later he wears it to my graduation,” Dylan Olivo, 18, wrote on Twitter.

Dylan said he was “shocked” when his dad showed up to graduation wearing the tie.

98-Year-Old Turns $1,000 In Stock Into $2 Million And Donates It All To Wildlife

June 5, 2017

70 years ago, Russ Gremel decided to buy about $1,000 worth of stock in Walgreens. By the time Gremel hit his late 90s, the stock was worth more than $2 million.

The now 98-year-old Chicagoan donated the stock to the Illinois Audubon Society, which used the money to establish a 400-acre wildlife refuge near Dixon, Illinois.

This weekend, the Gremel Wildlife Sanctuary was dedicated in his name.

“It’s incredibly generous,” Illinois Audubon Society executive director Jim Herkert said of the donation. “It’s allowing us to protect a really valuable and important piece of property and fulfill one of Russ’ wishes that we could find a place where people could come out and experience and enjoy nature the way he did as a kid.”

Gremel never married and never had kids. He said he wanted to see the money be put to good use before he died.

“You have to do some good in this world, that’s what money is for,” Gremel told the Chicago Tribune.

5 Quick Ways to Boost Your Metabolism

Good news: There are tried-and-true tricks to maximize your burn from a.m. to p.m. (without disrupting your lifestyle). Take advantage of these five easy power-up hacks.

1. Don’t sit still

Fidget, stand, and chew gum; these types of activities, termed NEAT (nonexercise activity thermogenesis), have been shown to help torch an extra 300 to 2,000 calories per day.

20 Ways to Torch 200 Calories

2. Become a fan of green tea

Studies indicate that green tea can increase metabolic rate by 4 to 5%. Feel free to go for seconds—it has only 2 calories per cup (sans sweetener, of course).

3. Drink more water

A German study discovered that downing two 8-ounce glasses of H2O improved calorie burning by 30% in as little as 10 minutes, and the effect lasted for more than an hour.

4. Pucker up

Add fresh lemon juice to your tea or water—it’s loaded with vitamin C. Arizona State University researchers found that exercisers who don’t get enough C may zap 25% fewer calories during a workout.

5. Get silly

A classic study published in the International Journal of Obesity revealed that laughing sparks a small increase in calorie burning. (We did the math: Fifteen giggly minutes melts up to 40 calories!)
