"So how could this piece of trivia from a field we may not normally study be useful to us in the workplace or at home?"
Do we have a word that could rhyme with the word "trivia"? I can't pronounce it in the right way since we have two vowel sounds? I think that the word "trivia" has two syllables and the first one is stressed. Am I right?

Many non-English speakers see it as only two syllables because it would be in their language: for example Spanish Marķa has to be written with an 'ķ' because without it the word would have two syllables. You're presumably trying to say /'trɪvja/ - wrong in two ways (number of syllables and final vowel).
