These artifacts/relics of immense power grant power and ability to their wielder, often numerous powers/abilities. Some objects are sentient, or have an inherent intelligence and will of their own, and are capable of taking possession of those who claim and use them; either mentally or by full body possession. The conditions of possession, if applicable, vary from the wielder being in grave danger, or when s/he is angered or enraged. Sentient artifacts/objects can speak through their host when they take full control over the host's body and mind. Most items are accompanied by Powers Via Object .
Rowe is so identified in pop culture as the Dirty Jobs guy that people who've heard of him assume that he's great at fixing things. The truth is just the opposite. He grew up being envious of his father and grandfather, who both had a much better mechanical knack and ability to use their hands. Especially his grandfather Carl Knobel, who Rowe called Pop.
"To me, Pop was a magician, and his talents a great mystery," Rowe wrote in Guideposts magazine. "As his would-be apprentice, I mimicked his every move."
But Rowe was a terrible apprentice. And it frustrated the heck out of him when he was a teenager. To which his grandfather explained, "God gave me a toolbox, Mike. He gave you one too. But he didn't give us the same one. You understand?" Rowe said he first thought his grandfather was "just trying to make me feel better" but then realized he was right. Rowe's gifts were his voice and his ability to speak in public.
Years later, when Rowe was a San Francisco TV host, his toilet backed up, and he had to call a plumber. The situation reminded him of his grandfather. "I considered a world without men like Pop. What would civilization look like without them?" he wrote. "If a TV host calls in sick, life goes on. But if our tradesmen don't report for work, things fall apart. Literally." So he used his own toolbox to do a segment called "Somebody's Gotta Do It" to illuminate what those forgotten blue-collar workers do, with Rowe as the apprentice. That idea evolved into Discovery's Dirty Jobs. Pretty touching story for a self-described "smart aleck."
This is probably the most frequently asked question when talking about going dairy-free. Good news! Nature’s best calcium sources are dark leafy greens such as kale, collards, mustard greens, and turnip greens. The calcium in these foods is absorbed at double the rate of dairy calcium. About 30 percent of dairy calcium is absorbed whereas about 60 percent of calcium from dark leafy greens is absorbed. Other rich plant sources of calcium include beans, almonds, figs, and fortified nondairy milks such as unsweetened almond milk, oat milk, hemp milk, and rice milk.
