Incase you're wondering, "What makes you tick?" is an English expression (idiom) that loosely translates to mean, "What's your reason for living? What gives you motivation to wake up in the morning?

We really hoped the storm would weaken and stop.…

All the unfamiliar names of people or places

Yes, I mean all the unfamiliar names of people or places in an article, news report or blog post. Usually there are so many unfamilar names of people or places in what you're reading, which may impede/hamper your reading. This can be a problem. I wonder how you'll deal with it.
