• I was really excited to move to Singapore for a number of reasons, though one might be a bit surprising. I knew that I would have better work opportunities there, plus there is just so much more to do there too. I would be able to dine at restaurants that I could only read about before, plus the cultural events are plentiful here. What has me excited on a personal level though is the organic hair salon in singapore that I discovered after just a short search. I came from a small town that only had one hair salon, and they were very basic with what they offer to their customers. Read more …

  • My wife does not understand my fascination with football, but I suppose I am not the only man who has uttered those words. She gets that I like to watch the games with my friends, but it is so much more than that too. I enjoy just spending time on my own looking over stats and history as well as rumors about what is going on between the different teams. Ever since I discovered a website dedicated only to football rumours, I have been spending even more time getting to know not only my team’s intentions but others in the league as well.

    What I really like about this site is that there are trade rumours for every team in the league. I always look at Manchester United rumours first, but I like the other news too because everything either directly or indirectly affects my own team. Read more …

  • I never traveled when I was younger because I simply had a fear of flying. For some reason, I lost that fear seemingly overnight a few years ago, so I have been making up for lost time. I made several trips across the United States, but I won’t be taking my first international trip until later this year. When my sister asked me if I would like to do a switzerland tour with her at the end of this year, it didn’t take me but a few seconds to agree to go, even without knowing how much it would cost or how long we would be gone.

  • I am trying to get the bank to go through with the paper work on the house, but so far it has been a big hassle. Of course we have to get a few things worked out first. We need to find some good deals on a walla walla home insurance policy before we can get the house, that is unless we can do it with no help from the bank. If you borrow money on a house, or any other thing I would guess, then you need to have it insured. In fact if you borrow money to start a business they will usually make sure that you have life insurance, so that the insurance policy will cover their butts if you dropped dead while you owed them that money. They really do not want you to drop dead, but if you do they still want their money back and they want the interest that you agreed to pay on the loan as well. It is the exact same way with a house loan or a mortgage. Read more …

  • Adt Home Security Systems Adt Alarm System Burglar AlarmsI have purchased a new house, and now I am going to try to protect it. I had a list of all of the things that I wanted to do in advance of my family moving into the house, but one of the things that I overlooked, and did not put on the list, was to get a home security system put into the house. I believe that it is smart to have a security system in your house, especially if the crime rate is even somewhat bad in your area.

    I know that personally, if I were to forgo having a security system in my House, and something were to happen to my family, that I would feel completely terrible, and I am not sure that I would be able to live with myself going forward. As such, I think that it would be a great idea for me to get a security system that has a lot of advanced features. Read more …

  • Most people are concerned about how much money they have. For this reason, they set a budget every single month. Lots of people are trying to find ways that they can save money so that they have more money to work with in their budget. One way that people try to save money is by finding less expensive housing. Lots of people have been able to find beautiful apartments that are offered at a relatively inexpensive price at the following site: http://treepoint-apts.com. When a person does not have to spend so much money on their house, they will be able to have money for other things. Some people use this money to pay off debt. Other people use this money so that they can buy things that they want, like electronic gadgets. Other people use the extra money that they have to go on vacation. Since the person is spending less money on housing, they may actually be able to go on more vacations or they may be able to spend a longer amount of time on the vacations that they take.

  • ... rope access - Offshore Locations - Rope Access Photo Gallery - RopeRight now, I am looking for a very professional company that provides various rope access services in the UK. I am the operational supervisor at a power generation facility, and it is quickly approaching the scheduled date for a number of key inspections that the plant is supposed to undergo in the near future. I am looking at proaltus as a company to hire for the job, and the reason why we need to hire a company to do the rope access work, is that back when the plant was first opened, there were employees trained in rope access techniques, who could inspect the entire plant on their own.

    However, since the time of the last inspection, those employees have been let go, and as such, there is no longer anyone who remains in employment of the company that is properly trained to do the sort of inspection that needs to be done. The plant has two large smoke stacks that are used to cool water vapor after it is done being used to turn the turbines; it is not even proper to call them smoke stacks anyway, as they are just cooling towers, and there is no smoke, or combustion, that is involved.

    However, these are very tall towers, and they will need to be inspected thoroughly. Somebody has to be up there close and personal to inspect them, and that requires skills at using different methods for accessing such high locations. It seems like the easiest solution to a problem of nature, is to contract a company with expertise in industrial rope access, to do the inspections. That is what I intend to do, and I hope to get it scheduled in the near future. The inspection needs to be completed at some point within the next month.

    1. I’m planning to transfer this year, however I have couple “F” and “W” on my college record. I re- took those classes and got a good grades and my GPA is 3.6 right now. However, I heard that in UCLA and USC they are very strict with that and if they see more than 2 “W” or “F” they denied your application right away. Is it true? Doesn’t mean that I have no chances to get it?

      Answer by George
      I think you know you have placed yourself and your future in some stressful and hazardous places. You been involved in a high stakes higher education game and either didn’t care or didn’t realize the costs there would be to not making a plan, or having a goal and and not sticking to it.

      I can’t say what effect 2 W’s or F would have on your applications to UCLA or USC, but I can tell you that it would raise heavy cautions from many colleges and universities from the Midwest, to the East and the South.

      You have damaged your record and you should transfer. However, your transfer should probably be to a state university such as LA state, Long Beach State, or any other state college in California if you are a resident of California and if you are planning a career in a field that requires more that a bachelor’s degree to be employed and to be promoted. Most fields have raised their expectations so that many of them hire MA students for beginning level positions.

      Another strategy you might apply is to go to a community college to complete either two years and then transfer again to a college that offers a four year degree to finish up a bachelor’s degree. And then go on to an M.A.

    2. I’m still waiting for my w-2, and I still haven’t gotten it yet. Does anyone know the latest date they send it out? Isn’t there some law that they have to send it out by a certain date?

      Answer by romanov1918
      January 31.

    3. I am trying to fill out a w’4 for a new job. My husband worked full time and I am in the Army Reserves but other than that I didn’t work. We have 1 child. What is the correct number of allowances?
      He is active duty army and I can’t rememebr ever doing a w-4 before. MY daughter and I are his dependents in the eyes of the military. I’d say he makes around 35000 a year and I make about 3,000 in the reserves. Are each of us an exemption?

      Answer by Judy
      Yours is complicated and you don’t give nearly enough info. Depends on how much each of you makes at each job including the Reserves, and what he has on his W-4. Married but withhold at the higher single rate/0 might be a good start, but might result in too much withholding (you’d get any excess refunded when you file), or it might not be enough withheld.

  • A great way to get a handle on your financial health is to look for bargains and discounts whenever possible. Lose your affiliation to certain brands and only buy when you have coupons. For example, if you normally buy one detergent but one has a $3 coupon, buy the one with the coupon.

    The key to total happiness and success is money management. Capital that you invest should be well protected. Investing your current profits to grow them is a good idea, but you have to have good money management skills to make that work. Set standards for profits and what you put into capital.

    It is helpful to take along an envelope with you when you are shopping. Your envelope should be used to store items such as business cards and purchase receipts. Keep this information available as a record that you might need at a later date. They might come in handy in case you wanted to compare them with the credit card statements just to be sure you weren’t double charged.

    Be aware of your finances by making detailed arrangements for your financial stability. If you have a good plan you will be able to motivate yourself to save and not spend.

    When trying to manage your finances, you really should avoid taking on much debt. Taking a loan for a car or a house is acceptable, as long as you can afford it. Credit should be used sparingly except for emergency situations, such as car repairs or sicknesses.

    A credit card can have benefits not seen in a debit card. Once you have a credit card, put it to use for daily expenses like food and gas. Most credit cards offer some kind of rewards, like cash back on these items. Saving money and living within your means marks a mature person. It is possible for you to learn how to do so yourself. It only takes a little bit of discipline and an understanding of where you can pinch some pennies and save. By trying the ideas you’ve just learned, you can start getting your finances in good shape.

    It’s never too late to put your finances in order. No matter when you start, there will be a point down the road where you’ll be better off than if you let the matter slide. Any start is a good one when it comes to your finances.

    An access to savings that are immediately available is important. This account should have a high yield. Some of these are available at online banks, and they are all covered by the FDIC.

    To guarantee that you are not late on any payments have them withdrawn from your checking account automatically. You may not be able to fully pay off your cards, but regular, timely payments will improve your credit history. You are sure to make your payments on time every month if you have an automatic payment set up through your bank. Any month that you have some extra money, you can always make an additional payment on the credit card account.

    By practicing patience in your personal finances, you can save a significant amount of money. It is quite tempting to run out and purchase the newest electronics on offer. If they would just be patient and wait a bit, those prices will go down by up to 50%. This will give you much more money to use for other things. Try to negotiate with debt collectors who are trying to get you to make payments. It’s likely that they only need a small amount of the total to come out ahead. For this reason many will accept an amount less than what was originally owed. Use this to your advantage when paying off old debts.

  • Dr. Neubauer will speak on “Sustainability and Development: Moving from Charity to Empowerment and independence” during this event to honor the legacies of Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr.


    Incline Village, Nev. (PRWEB) December 19, 2014

    Myths And Mountains announced this week that Dr. Antonia Neubauer, President of Myths and Mountains and Founder of READ Global will be a featured speaker at the IIPT World Symposium: Cultivating Sustainable and Peaceful Communities through Tourism, Culture and Sport being held at Emperors Palace, Ekurhuleni, South Africa (adjacent to Johannesburg International Airport), February 16-19, 2015.

    The interactive and action-oriented Symposium will honor the legacies of the worlds three great champions of Peace and Non-Violent Resistance: Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr. with the aim of affirming these legacies by building bridges of tourism, friendship and peace in regions throughout the world.

    The Symposium, endorsed by Archbishop Desmond Tutu, will also commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the African Union, 20 years of South African Democracy and the 50th Anniversary of Civil Rights Legislation in the U.S.

    Dr. Neubauer will be speaking on Sustainability and Development: Moving from Charity to Empowerment and independence.

    As she contends, True community empowerment requires more than a quick fix. Transforming a village takes time and a sustainable, holistic approach to development that includes education, enterprise and training.”

    IIPT is using its historical convening power to bring world leaders of the travel and tourism industry to South Africa as keynote speakers for this milestone event including: Dr. Taleb Rifai, Secretary General, UN World Tourism Organization (UNWTO); Mr. David Scowsill, President and CEO, World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC); Salih Cene, President, Skal International; Martin Craigs, President and CEO, Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA – Nov. 2011 to Nov. 2014); Professor Geoffrey Lipman, President, International Coalition of Tourism Partners (ICTP); Mok Singh, Skal International President (2012 2013) and member, IIPT International Advisory Board as well as leading Ministers of Tourism including the visionary Hon. Alain St. Ange, Minister of Tourism, Seychelles and creator of the Carnavales de Carnavales and other Ministers of Tourism.

    The Symposium will have two basic aims: to identify strategies and best practice in cultivating productive, sustainable, peaceful and welcoming communities through tourism, culture and sports; and to determine lessons learned from countries that have experienced conflict and the potential roles of tourism, culture and sports in reconciliation and post-conflict socio-economic re-development.

    Design of the Symposium will be highly interactive with international experts in community development, community tourism, sports, culture and peace engaging with delegates in the exchange of experiences and ideas. Ministers of Tourism from countries that have experienced conflict will share their insights and suggestions related to strategies for reconciliation and healing wounds of conflict and best practices in harnessing tourism, culture and sports in the post-conflict socio-economic re-development process.

    In addition to Ministers of Tourism from Africa, selected Ministers from countries of Europe, Asia and South America that have experienced conflict have also been invited to participate in interactive plenary session panels.

    A special action initiative already begun in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the African Union is an IIPT/Skal Cities, Towns and Villages of Peace Across South Africa project with a goal of 50 cities, towns and villages dedicating themselves to peace in the weeks leading up to the Symposium. Some ten cities, towns and villages have dedicated themselves to peace including the City of Pietermaritzburg where Mahatma Gandhi was thrown off the train 120 years ago initiating the Non-Violent Resistance Movement. Other action initiatives will be announced in the weeks prior to and during the Symposium.

  • As you can see by reading this article, those who suffer from eczema can get the relief they so desperately crave. Research and sticking to a plan is what needs to be done to get relief. Your quest for eczema knowledge has begun with this article; be sure to put these tips to use.

    Avoid too many dairy products if you have eczema. The milk from a cow contains hormones and chemicals that lower the immune system and cause flareups. While having dairy products occasionally is fine, do not go overboard; there are many great, tasty substitutes to many dairy products, like almond milk and goat milk. Do not turn the water up too high when in the shower or the bath. It can cause problems for your eczema. In addition, be gentle when washing your skin. Do not rub the skin too hard, and avoid soap. Instead, use a cleanser that is safer for your body. Do you have eczema on your hands or wrists? Cold winter weather can be really brutal on these areas if they are not properly protected. The cold, dry air associated with winter can increase the dryness of your skin. Of course, this can cause a flare-up of your eczema. To help prevent this from happening, rub a ointment-based moisturizer on your hands and wrists. When you go outside, wear gloves for added protection. If you have eczema, then you’re of course going to want to do everything you can to manage the condition properly. No doubt it can feel embarrassing at times, but you don’t have to just live with it. Instead, you can focus on taking control using the information obtained from this article. If you have pets, take measure to keep their dander, dirt and dust from affecting you. That means they should not be in your bed at any time or on your couch. Consider getting their fur clipped to keep it short and to lessen the shedding. Also give them regular baths to keep them as clean as possible.

    If you suffer from eczema, try not to sweat too much. Of course, certain sweating cannot be avoided. But, it is important to try to keep the skin cool. If you do sweat, say from a workout or a jog, be sure to take a shower as soon as you are done. If you have eczema, rubbing your skin with a towel to get it dry may aggravate your eczema and lead to a flare-up. Rubbing produces friction which can irritate sensitive skin areas. It also removes your body’s naturals oils. When drying you body after bathing, use a towel to pat your skin until it’s partially dry. While your skin is still a bit damp, apply a moisturizer to lock in the bath’s moisture.

    Your body temperature could have an impact on your eczema. Being too hot could cause you to sweat, which makes the skin irritated and itchy. In the winter time, the humidity inside is quite low, which could cause the skin to dry out and become itchy. Keep these things in mind as to what could make your eczema flare up. There can be little debate about the trouble that the condition known as eczema can cause in the lives of those it affects. The truth is, however, that by learning a few key facts and pointers about the condition, it really is possible to manage it effectively. Keep reading, and you can do just that.

    Make good use of creams containing hydrocortisone. A 1% solution will help ease itching. You can use this type of preparation two or three times a day for a week. Be careful not to overuse it because it is a steroid. Using it for too long could be unsafe.

    Trim and clean your fingernails. While you likely understand that you shouldn’t scratch, you might actually do it while you are sleeping. This can cause your rash to become worse, and long nails will only exacerbate the problem. Make sure your nails are as clean as possible, too. Keep the temperature constant in your house. That means you will have to use your air conditioning system at different points throughout the year. If the temperature fluctuates too much, that can be a trigger for your eczema. During the winter, it may be best to get a cool mist humidifier as well, so that your skin does not dry out. When drying off after a relaxing bath, always use a soft towel rather than one that is scratchy. You may want to but special towels for yourself and wash them with a gentle detergent and softener that doesn’t have harsh chemicals in it. Laundry products for baby’s sensitive skin are a good choice.

  • Be sure to secure your attached garage. Often people are concerned that burglars can enter the home via the attached garage . Happily, there is a solution to this problem. A C clamp helps for garage doors on a track. The clamp actually keeps the door closed if tightened close to the track roller.

    Get advice from your friends before selecting a provider for home security. You can benefit from the experience of others that have gone before you by paying attention to their recommendations and warnings. Be sure you seek out advice by asking those people. Hide your valuables in the walls. You can hide small valuables inside the walls. Just take advantage of the phone jack, electrical outlet or unused switch plate. If you haven’t got any plates that are unused, simply install a false switch plate.

    If someone looks after your house when you’re gone, have them remove fliers from the door. Thieves will drop off flyers to see if home owners are away. If the flier is not removed, it’s easy for a burglar to suspect that the owner is away. Always get references from anyone you are considering hiring to do work inside your home. You should do a background check as well to find out their criminal history. You might not know that the maid or contractor entering your home is a crook, and this could be a very bad mistake.

    Don’t use social media to announce that you will be gone for an extended period of time. There may be a thief within this list and you would have been inviting him straight through your front door!

    Light up your home’s exterior. Burglars like using darkness to hide. Install lights by each and every entryway to your home. All doors, porches, garages and windows should be well lit.

    Get a home alarm, but only if the police are called when it’s gone off. An alarm system with full-time monitoring by a security company is the safest option. You can rest assured that the police will be called by the company. You cannot depend on your neighbors to call them. When the windows in your family room are facing the street, it is best to close your curtains every night before you go to bed. You never want to make it easy for folks to peer into your home. Someone who can peer into your home may decide that your valuables are ripe for the taking. Be discreet about what the public can see and you can reduce your chances of getting burglarized.

    Choose some deadbolts with captive keylocks for your home. These have a thumb latch that prevents others from reaching around and opening the lock via a nearby broken window. If you are going out, simply lodge the key on the lock. Do not choose a home alarm system that monitors only your doors. Windows need to be monitored too. Be sure your home alarm covers all entry points into your home. This will make your family safer.

    Your flashlights should always be equipped with good, working batteries. If the lights go out, they will ensure everyone stays safe. Be sure everyone in your family is aware of the location of emergency flashlights.

    If you like to have a key hidden in case you lose yours, place it in a safe place. Hiding it beneath the doormat is very common and most intruders will look there. Instead, try hiding a key on the collar of an outside dog.

  • An excellent hobby that many people partake in is playing card games. You would be amazed at all the games you can play with a simple deck of cards, ranging from spades, hearts, solitare, rummy, and many more. The only downside is this hobby usually requires one or more additional people to join you. However, if you can find a few people, card games can be a very fun hobby.

    Develop hobbies that increase you skills in the real world. This can include learning how to create a blog or a website, or jumping all-in to become a graphic artist. These are all things that you can develop as a hobby, but potentially use in your professional life. You may even decide on an entire career change based on things you learn from new hobbies.

    If you’re stumped about which hobby you should get involved with, consider one that gives you plenty of exercise. You could take up walking, swimming, or jogging to help pass time, and keep you busy, while burning off a ton of calories at the same time! Get a friend involved and you won’t even feel like you’re exercising. Whenever you are just starting a new hobby, remember to do it safely. Read the directions carefully for any equipment that you use. Keep your hobby area well organized and clean up at the end of every session. If possible, consider taking lessons from a person with more experience. You hobby will provide many years of pleasure if you do it with safety in mind. Now that you know so much about hobbies, you should have no problem determining what to do with your spare time. You can now choose a pastime that will fill you with great joy. Take your time as you decide what to do next and then enjoy every moment you have doing it. Find a way to help others with your hobby. Do you like to crochet? You can crochet winter hats for local children that don’t have hats. Do you like to cook? Cook a meal for someone special in your life who could benefit from it. Be creative and have fun while helping others.

    While not everyone lives by caves, caving can be a very interesting and exploratory hobby.

  • Carlos Montalvo Becomes Oldest American and First Argentine National to Summit the Active Sangay Volcano – Expedition Serves as Test Bed for Stealth Performance Technologies


    Atherton, CA (PRWEB) December 16, 2014

    Guargualla Chico, San Fernando, Ecuador Carlos Montalvo, Jr., a 57 year old former Apple and HP executive, has become the oldest American and the first Argentine national to successfully summit the 17,300 Sangay volcano in Ecuador.

    Sangay volcano is one of the highest and most active volcanoes in the world. The extreme Amazonia weather, combined with the density and the remoteness of virgin jungle that surrounds it, has long made Sangay one of the most challenging and wondrous expedition climbs in the Americas.

    Montalvo reached the Sangay summit with long-time climbing partner, Glenn Ferguson, CEO of Green Environmental after a 70 km approach and descent through the dense jungle and numerous river crossings of the Cordillera Oriental, Ecuador.

    The milestone expedition was also a proving ground for technologies from two of Silicon Valleys most innovative stealth companies, Wiivv Technologies and SenseLabs. The companies are focused on commercializing new digital augmentation technologies designed to maximize bio-mechanical and human peak performance, respectively.

    The two milestones were certified by Freddy Ramirez, Founding Director of the ASUGUIN Climbing Association (Ecuadors premiere alpine association) and Luis Anibal Tenemasa-Lema, President Centro Tourismo Comunitario Guargualla-San Fernardo.

    Montalvo celebrated the Sangay milestone with a follow-on summit of the Antisana and Iliniza Sur volcanoes with his son, Cameron Remy Montalvo.

    Over the years, Carlos has brought his experiences on Mt McKinley and Acuncagua to accomplish multiple summit routes of Ecuadors best known volcanoes – the Cotopaxi, Chimborazo and Antisana, said Freddy Ramirez. We hope that this achievement helps bring global awareness to the wonders of Ecuadors most exotic and remote wilderness areas. ASUGUIN is recognized as one of the worlds top Alpine schools and guide associations and we thank Carlos and Glenn for choosing our association for their expedition and logistics support.

    There are few places on earth where one can stand atop the hot blistering ejecta and vapor of an active volcano surrounded by virgin Amazon flora and fauna time truly stands still at the summit of the Sangay, said Carlos Montalvo.

    The Community of Guargualla Chico has built a premier example of locally supported, sustainable eco-adventuring. Our lead guide Fausto Tenemasa and his father Emillo pioneered the route which made our summit attempt possible and I invite fellow adventures to follow our lead and visit Ecuadors Jurassic Park. We also thank President Rafael Correa and his administration for investing in locally supported ecotourism in Ecuadors remote indigenous regions.

  • Divert the attention to something else. Panic attacks build up a lot of stress. This excess energy should be used to reduce the severity of the attack rather than increase it. You can try exercising or cleaning your house. If you redirect your energy to something constructive, the panic will quickly pass. Perhaps someone in your family has panic attacks. If so, you can help them by learning to recognize the onset symptoms. Then, you can provide a calming influence and perhaps deter the attack. You will know when someone is about to experience an attack because it usually starts out with them trying to gain their breath. Then it may advance to other conditions such as trembling, dizziness, sweating and thoughts of panic. You should always make sure this is not a heart attack before doing what you can to help the person through a panic attack.

    No matter how many panic attacks you have, if you’re trying new techniques to defeat them, you’re succeeding. There are a number of different techniques and strategies you can keep trying in order to eventually find one that will work for you.

    In order to prevent panic attacks in the future, you will want to be certain you are getting enough sleep. If your body is agitated, your mind will be, too. When the mind isn’t calm, the incidents of panic attacks increase. Seek professional help if you find that your sleeping is compromised to the extent that your anxiety becomes worse or panic attacks increase in number or severity. Create a down to the minute schedule to work your life around; include everything from brushing your teeth in the morning to stopping at the store after work. Get a timer and use it to see how long your tasks take so that you can schedule them properly. You will able to better tell what your day can bring and prepare yourself for it. You have to get plenty of sleep, if you are prone to panic attacks. Not getting enough sleep can not only increase the frequency of attacks, it can also keep you from clearing your head and calming down if you have one. Try to get eight hours of sleep every single night. Learn to be aware of your emotions and body signals, so that you can recognize the symptoms of a panic attack prior to one occurring. Take note of what thoughts you are having prior to an attack by keeping a journal. Review your journal weekly to get an understanding of what triggers the attacks, and what you can do to avoid them. Try to maintain some control over your thought process during a panic attack. Is this thought really helpful? Does your method make any sense? Think about the likelihood of anything negative resulting from these thoughts. Understand why you are experiencing a panic attack. Once you have understood the root of your panic attacks, you must find a way to address it immediately. Following the exchange, explain why you posed the question.

    Often times, a panic attack is much more harmful when you let the symptoms take control of you. Work through the panic attack instead of fighting it. Visualize the feelings and sensations of the attack flowing past you without touching you. Most of all, however, focus on the way you are breathing. Breathe slowly and evenly while trying to stay calm. Eventually, the adrenalin will burn off, and you will feel yourself becoming more relaxed.

    The tips should help you control and deal with your panic attacks better and let you live the life you want to live. Remember that feeling negative about things is part of your panic. It is possible to avoid a panic attack. Doing the work needed to prevent or lessen the severity of your panic attacks will be worth the effort, for the pay off is a happier and less stressful existence. It is likely that there is a support group for panic attack sufferers in your area, so look online for one near you. A support group will help you talk about the problems you are going through and you will be able to hear how other people deal with their panic attacks.

    Don’t hide by yourself if you are feeling stressed; instead, find someone you can talk to. They will be able to offer comforting words which will help you relax. If you can find someone to hug you, that is even more effective. The healing power associated with human touch helps you feel safer and calmer.

    If you go through panic attacks, it is important that you get the proper amount of sleep. When you are surviving on little sleep, the chance of having a panic attack will increase. It will also lessen your ability to cope with attacks, and to think clearly. Try for eight restful hours of sleep every night.

    Do you like those really nice door hangerswith witty sayings, photos or names that serve as a nameplate? If you are just going to use it at home, you do not really have to go to the point of going to a door hanger printing house. You can actually make your custom door hangers that speak about your style or express your creativity.

    This is actually a nice activity if you are a stay at home mom and you would like to have a nice crafts activity with your child. Her involvement will be dependent upon her age, but even a toddler can already help with applying paste or handing you the papers and the like. As they grow older, they may be able to cut the papers themselves. Below is a guide on how to make name door hangers for all the rooms of the entire family

    What you need:

    2mm Sintra Board
    Stickers
    Colored Paper
    Letter Cutouts from magazines
    A picture of each family member
    Glue or paste
    Ribbons and other embellishments
    Scissors and cutting knife
    Circle cutter

    What to do:

    1. Measure a 4.25″ x 11″ rectangle on the sintra board. Mark the corners and cut it out using a cutting knife. Make several of these, depending on how many door hangers you are going to create.

    2. Wrap each rectangle with a piece of colored paper. You can have a different color for each door, depending on the favorite color of the person sleeping in it. Coat the entire surface of the sintra board with paste and stick the paper all around. Pat and press the paper so that it will be smooth. Let it dry. Repeat the process with the rest of the rectangles.

    3. If you have a circle cutter, draw a circle shape about 3″ in diameter in the topmost portion of the rectangle. Using a circle cutter, die cut the circle shape. The hollow part can be used to hang your work on the door knob.

    3. Get a photo of the family member to whom the door hanger is intended. Paste it on the rectangle about an inch under the circle. Paste some ribbons or florets on the side to make a border for the photo. Below it, use the letter cutouts to form the persons name. For example, your sisters name is “Cindy.” Form her name using those cutouts. Choose different colors and font styles from a colored and glossy magazine so that the word formed becomes interesting.

    4. Add stickers to your design to make them interesting. For example, you may have those flower stickers or star shapes. Place them all over the blank space in the rectangle to make it look interesting.

    5. You can also make a big bow so that you can stick this at the bottom of the hanger.

    On the back side, you may stick more letters that say, “Do Not Disturb” so that they can also turn it around and tell people that they are sleeping or busy.

    Door hangers are nice and usable crafts projects that you can do with your child. But if you come to think of it, you can also endeavor to make custom door hangers and give them away to friends during special occasions. You may also go to a door hanger printing house to do the job but it is much more fun to do it yourself.

  • Try to delegate someone who will be your go to person during your wedding day. You may forget to get something or bring something, and it would be a good idea to have someone who is not part of your wedding party who could run miscellaneous errands like this for you. To be totally ready for your first couple’s dance at the wedding reception, a few days prior begin practicing dancing while wearing a long dress. Whilst you may not have any problems dancing in different attire, your partner may find negotiating large amounts of fabric difficult. This helps to curb any bumbling, especially if you have a dress that has a puffy skirt.

    Schedule your reception for midday. Your bar tab will be significantly less as people drink less in daylight. What’s more, receptions that feature lunch rather than dinner generally cost less money, so you can funnel the savings into better food or some other part of the wedding.

    Try to plan some fun group activities that your guests can enjoy on your wedding day. Engage your guests so that they are not forced to kill time between events. You can have competitions and games, or maybe a karaoke hour. When your guests enjoy themselves and socialize with everyone else at the event, they are more likely to have fond memories of your wedding.

    A wedding is often a stressful time, instead of a day wedding, plan it for a little later. This allows you to ensure that everything is done without requiring you to wake up terribly early that morning. Take some time in the morning to pamper yourself, like getting a manicure and pedicure. Even if you cannot afford bountiful floral arrangements and centerpieces, never underestimate the power of a single rosebud in a distinctive, colorful vase. Place one at the center of each table at the reception site. If you prefer a more detailed look, place the vase on a table runner made from lace doilies, artfully arranged silk, or laser-cut paper. Wedding bands are a vital part of the wedding, as they help to signify the joining of two parties. Make sure that on the days leading up to the wedding and on the wedding itself to have someone who you can count on keep track of your wedding bands to ensure security. If dancing isn’t your forte, you should prepare yourself for the first dance by donning a long skirt and taking a few practice runs around the living room. Whilst you may not have any problems dancing in different attire, your partner may find negotiating large amounts of fabric difficult. This will help with any awkwardness he may feel, especially if your dress if puffy at the bottom.

    When planning table seating arrangements, try to assign your guests so that there are an even number at each table. Try grouping tables by age groups so that they can talk about similar things.

    Try to arrange transportation from the airport to the hotel or resort for guests arriving for your destination wedding. At worst, have your guests meet up and form groups so they can share the limo or cab costs. It’s already costing them a lot to be there; try to help them as much as possible!

    One way to help remain in budget is to search Craigslist for items or services needed for your wedding. However, before giving them any money, meet up with them in person as a couple.

    Don’t fear trusting others with your wedding planning. It is natural to want to be the majority controller in the planning process for your wedding as it is such an emotionally charged day. Planning a wedding can become overwhelming, and sometimes it is in your best interest to trust the guidance of a professional for things that you are unsure about.

    When picking a DJ for your wedding, make sure you choose someone with a great reputation. A bad DJ can ruin your reception, so ask any candidates for their references along with their fees. If a candidate has no references, mark him off the list immediately! If his references are all family, that’s another reason to give him the boot.

  • When you are squared into position to take a swing at the ball, try to give your hips a swing as you move, so that you are distributing your body weight from your back foot, onto your front foot. This will strengthen your swing and increase your shot distance. As you swing, quickly swing your hips so you transfer the weight from your back foot to your front foot. This will give you a more powerful swing which lets you hit the ball farther. Always have high confidence by trying to play with other people on the same level as yourself. As a novice golfer, you should play simple courses with partners at your skill level. Playing an overly difficult course with much better golfers will just discourage you from learning the game.

    Adjust your stance to make sure your front foot is a little more close to the ball, if you have a tendency to slice the ball. When you close your stance, you’ll have a much better chance at keeping your initial shot on the fairway. There are health benefits to be had from the game, and it can be an enjoyable and rewarding activity! Nearly anyone can play golf, you just need to begin. The following article will give you advice to improve your knowledge.

    To get a better workout and save money, walk the golf course, instead of using a golf cart. Walking from one hole to another gives you extra exercise, thus supplementing the health benefits of playing golf. Plus, you will stay warmed up and loose as you walk along, thus improving your golf game.

    To ensure your posture is correct, wiggle your toes. If your toes wiggle freely, your posture may be tilted too far back. The proper position would be to lean into the golf ball, allowing your feet to move slightly, but not overly much. People of all backgrounds and ages love the sport of golf. Although a diverse group of people play golf, there’s a lot of general golfing advice that can help anyone improve his game. This article will teach you some useful skills that you can practice at any golf course in the world.

    You can stay more consistent when you are driving when you always tee off with the tee at the same height. Teeing too low can lead to grounders, while teeing too high can cause you to pop the ball up and lose valuable distance. Try to take your time and experiment to find the best height for each swing in your arsenal.

    Make sure to use your body to your advantage while you play. You have to use your body as a source of power, not just your arms. Utilize all of your body’s muscles to get maximum power as you swing your club. This will help by having less stress on your arms and you will gain more distance with your strike.

    If you want to hit a good fade, tighten up your grip. The proper grips for driving the ball and putting can be different, and is often misunderstood. You can hit a fade or a draw no matter how strong your left hand is. Oftentimes, instructors will teach you to fade using the weaker left hand, but in reality it can be done in other ways. Being mentally prepared is just as important as being physically prepared when it comes to a game of golf. Let your home problems go and instead just focus your mind on the game. If the time to practice your golf is limited, focus on improving your short game. Strive to become a better putter, and work hard to improve your chipping. Developing these skills will have a large effect on your overall game. If time is not so hurried, then you can practice your wedge shots, and some 7 irons as well.

  • After examination of Narconon Moscow graduates and review of the program model, two medical doctors conclude in a recent translation of the Russian expertise that the Narconon program provides a full solution to the problems of drug abuse.

    AD from AD Network to do with Guts Casino :
    Guts Casino


    (PRWEB) November 11, 2014

    Narconon International recently released, in its first English translation from the original Russian, a medical expertise and evaluation of the Narconon drug rehabilitation program delivered by centers in Moscow, Russian Federation, between 1995 and 1998. The two senior contributors were Dr. Yuri Gurochkin, Professor in the Department of Criminology, Moscow Law Institute, and Dr. N. N. Grigoriev, at the time of the paper Senior Lecturer in Criminology, University of Military Defense, Ministry of Interior Affairs.

    The doctors studied the cases of 32 randomly selected Narconon Moscow students. Prior to enrolling in Narconon, these students had been injecting opiate drugs or using methamphetamine. All of them had Hepatitis C histories. Medical examination of patients before and after the program, says the paper, shows a considerable improvement of their physical and psychological condition. Further, the authors state in the papers conclusion, the programprovides a full solution of the problems related to drug abuse.

    Of the 32 Narconon students studied in depth, 87% had been using drugs between 3 to more than 5 years. They ranged in age from 16 to 25 years old. After graduation, nearly half, the paper says, had either found work or returned to school. Eight students decided to continue to study at Narconon Moscow and took on staff positions. All of these 32 had lived stably drug-free lives after the Narconon program.

    The expertise also included the results of an informal abstinence survey of the graduates. Of 158 persons who enrolled in one of the Narconon centers in or near Moscow between 1995 and 1998, the paper states, 113 were found to be drug-free from one to three years after graduation — a 72% drug abstinence rate. This drug-free statistic parallels others tabulated in a Narconon compilation of 40 years of studies, evaluations, and Routine Outcome Monitoring post-graduation surveys of programs both in and outside prison, from Sweden to Berlin, Moscow to Mexico, and across the United States.

    Leonid Gedko was one of those in the Moscow case study who chose to continue his Narconon studies after graduation and then joined staff. He is still living drug and crime-free 15 years later. In a recent interview, Gedko had strong praise for Narconon. In the late 1990s, he remembers, drug abuse was skyrocketing. UNODC statistics report a 400% increase in per capita drug abuse between 1995 and 1998.* Gedko said that he personally knew people who had died of AIDs. His own life was a wreck, he said, before he enrolled in Narconons social education model program. I was totally irresponsible, criminal and very sick. My nervous system was trashed. I was sick with hangover or drug crash every day. I was a madman. But despite 10 earlier failures with other drug rehab programs, Gedko again found hope, he said, with the help of the Narconon life skills courses. My greatest gains, he reported, were at the emotional and mental level. I graduated with the ability to achieve my goals. And I found a lovely wife, with whom I am still happily married.

    The Narconon network of drug rehab centers now includes four in Russia and one in Ukraine, as well as 12 drug education and prevention centers in Eastern Europe and the CIS.

    The authors of the 1998 Moscow expertise also speak out strongly against what they call the popular myth that drug addiction is absolutely incurable. Effective treatment, the authors state, would require treatment should be complex and include not only purification of the organism from toxins, but also restoration of personal moral values, i.e. the ability to differentiate between good and bad, virtue and vice, as well as to communicate with people without discomfort. The paper goes on to describe in detail the Narconon methodology, based on the works of humanitarian and author L. Ron Hubbard, which strives to achieve just that moral renaissance in its students. The expertise decries the pro-drug information campaign of cool magazines of the time which instilled in youth the false concepts of light and heavy drugs. Out of 100 drug addicts who are on the needle, 95 first tried marijuana, state the Russian authors.

  • Go when the time and temperature is right to catch fish. For example, if you want to catch bass fish, you will find that bigger bass fish are easier to find at dawn as well as dusk because the fish that they prefer to eat are more active. If you fish at these optimal times, make sure the water is at least 50 degrees.

    If you are fishing in a boat, take with you a flashlight, radio, cellphone and first aid kit. Safety is a primary concern when fishing out on open waters. These essential items are the best way to keep yourself safe. Net your fish carefully. When netting a fish, make sure the fish goes into the net headfirst. By doing this, the fish will actually swim deeper into your net when it attempts to swim away. This helps you to have the fish securely in your net before you try to remove it from the water.

    Attach a bobber to your fillet knife to prevent loss. Fillet knives get lost pretty frequently, so it’s best to take precautions. During a long fishing excursion, there’s a good chance your fillet knife will get dropped in the water. If you make sure that it can float, then you have eliminated that problem. This can be achieved by threading a strip of rawhide through the opening of the handle, then tying an over-sized cork at the end. Although many fishermen have hundreds of lures, only a few own a large number of reels. To keep reels in working condition, they need to be stored properly. This means you should reduce star tension whenever you aren’t using you reel and also make sure your line is clean. Having the sharpest hooks is essential to good fishing. When the hook is dull, it will be hard to catch fish, even when everything else is set up properly. You can sharpen hooks as you use them, or bring extras for replacements. The best tool in a fisherman’s arsenal is a sharp hook.

    Give fly fishing a shot! Fly fishing is a productive and popular way to fish, but you need to keep in mind that it is distinctly different from other types of fishing. Anyone wishing to try it must obtain different equipment such as rods, lures and clothing. Check your fishing boat in the beginning of the spring season in order to ensure that it’s ready to go, and that the battery is in good condition. Remove it from the boat and store it somewhere dry. However, avoid placing the battery on a cold concrete floor, as that may lessen the battery’s life. Find a good place for catching fish, and then go a little upstream to cast. That will take your bait and hook past the fish. The downstream drift is going to seem more natural and better attract fish to your lure. This method is especially helpful when the fish is in an area with debris or obstructions.

    Stream fishermen should always direct their casts upstream, allow the current to present the bait to your targeted fish. This technique will make it more likely for you to get a bite. Just see to it that you do not leave a lot of slack line inside the water. Setting the hook properly is something everyone should learn. A good fast hook set is essential when you are fishing, particularly when you are fishing with lures. You do not want to place all your effort to get a bite, and then lose the fish due to improper hooking. Salted worms need to have their flavor refreshed frequently. This is most important in muddy or swift water, and also after you have caught a fish. To revive the flavor of the worm, simply rub it between your palms.

    Pay attention to what is going on around you. If you do not pay attention to your surroundings, you may have an unsuccessful fishing trip. Become quiet and settled into your environment before you cast. Pay attention to wildlife around you, wind, and temperature. You might find that elements in the environment might help you better select a good fishing location.

    To avoid terrible garbage smells after cleaning fish, consider burying some of the body parts. The head, organs and tail will usually hold the worst smells. Do not do this if you own a pet that likes to dig in your yard, however.

    It is always a good idea to have a duplicate key for your car. It will save you the hassle and extra costs of calling a locksmith if your keys get locked inside the car. Having a duplicate key is great if you dont park your car in the garage.

  • Many people do not like to acknowledge that they are growing older. The following article will help you gain an understanding of what you can do to age naturally and gracefully. They will also help you to get a firm grasp on your personal aging process, so that you might feel in control of it. We all get a little bit older every day and there isn’t a single thing you can do to stop it. So make sure that you’re also getting wiser as you get older. Be sure that you’re using the tips provided to you in the article above to do the little things to ensure that you age well and avoid complications. To keep yourself feeling young as you age, you need to do some physical activity each day. This helps the aging process slow. In some cases people slow down and become less active the older they get, sitting on the sidelines instead of playing the game. This is a leading cause of muscle loss in older people. You can stay active by taking walks, gardening, or spending time with your grandchildren.

    If you want to age with grace, be sure to stay active. Keep your mind and body active to look and feel younger. In contrast, a stagnant existence can increase negative effects of aging and reduce your overall quality of life. Take up new hobbies and endeavors to remain active. Visit your GP for a routine physical at least once a year. This will help your doctor find any health issues before they develop into a major problem. Most diseases are treated more easily if they are caught in early stages, especially the serious ones such as cancer.

    There will be a point in time when you have to be taken care of. It is the best policy to sit down and talk to people that care about you about what your options are. If your family doesn’t have the ability to care for you, then you can find a residence that specifically caters to your demographic. An assisted living facility gives you your independence but helps you to tackle your most daunting everyday tasks. Eat healthy food. Your diet should consist of lots of veggies and fruit and small amounts of fats and sugar. A well-balanced, healthy diet improves the body as well as the mind. Your health depends on the fuels you put in your tank, so give your body high-test fuel.

    There are lots of news reports out there that talk about male menopause. Don’t pay attention to these reports. While it is true that testosterone levels in men drop as they get older, you should not suffer any adverse effects unless your levels are particularly low. Normally, low levels of testosterone indicate a problem other than simply age. Research shows inconclusive evidence on the use of testosterone hormone therapy to treat men whose levels are low but still within the normal range for their age. Exercise keeps your body flexible and helps you feel younger. Studies have proven that those who regularly exercise exhibit less aging symptoms than people who don’t exercise as much. Exercising will help you develop your muscles, your heart and your lungs. In addition, it keeps your skin looking vibrant and young. Skin care is very important when thinking about aging. Our skin can really take a beating, being exposed to so many different elements. Excessive time in the sun can further the progression of wrinkles and skin cancer. To embrace the changes that come with age fully, it is important to focus on the positive and not to underestimate yourself. Many people wrongly assume they can no longer do some things without even trying to do them first. The key to retaining both your memory and your strength is using them as much as possible to keep them fresh and fit. Remember to laugh often. Laughter and enjoyment don’t just improve your quality of life; filling your life with happiness can actually extend it. You should watch some comedies, read amusing novels, or learn a new joke to add some happiness into your life. If you’re with your friends, or even if you’re alone, laugh as much as you can.

    Eat correctly. Enjoy a diet that is low in fats and sugars and high in vegetables and fruits. Having a healthy diet helps you maintain not just your physical health, but your mental health, too, and it gives you the necessary fuel you require to help you through your day.

    Restoring your hormonal balance is an excellent aging tip. Both men and women have lower hormonal levels of different hormones as they age. Lower hormone levels can translate into more fatigue, loss of libido and less endurance. If needed, talk with your physician regarding hormone replacement therapy to begin your own plan.

  • The Lateral Flow Test (MRLAFMQ) for the Detection of Aflatoxin M1 in Raw Commingled Milk is First 15 Minute Screening Method Requiring No Preparation of Materials

    Lawrence, MA (PRWEB) December 19, 2014

    Charm Sciences is pleased to announce that its lateral flow MRLAFMQ test for the Detection of Aflatoxin M1 in raw commingled milk is the first lateral flow test to receive independent third party validation. The peer reviewed report of the validation by Technology and Food Science Unit of the Institute for Agricultural and Fisheries Research (ILVO-T&V) has been published by the Taylor & Francis Group.

    Aflatoxin B1, the most toxic aflatoxin and a known carcinogen, can be passed from contaminated feed through a cows milk as aflaxoton M1, to a consumer. While aflatoxin M1 is not as potent as B1, it is still classified as a group 1 carcinogen.

    Unfortunately, there is no known way to extract aflatoxin M1 from milk, said Bob Salter, Vice President of Regulatory Affairs for Charm Sciences, so it is vital to have an effective screening plan in place. Not only does Charms MRLAFMQ lateral flow test detect aflatoxin M1 in only 15 minutes, but it requires no preparation of materials, making it extremely easy for plants to run consistently. This test is easily run on the same Charm equipment used to screen milk for antibiotics at most dairies and farms.

  • Many people swear by meditation as an effective means of improving memory function in a productive, holistic manner. Find a quiet and comfortable spot to meditate, and focus your thoughts on breathing in and out. Half an hour each day can help keep your brain fit.

    Feed your brain with the food it needs to stay focused so that you see improvements in your memory. One thing that is crucial for brain health is healthy fats. Get plenty of these healthy fats by eating foods such as fish and walnuts and using flax seed oil and olive oil instead of trans fat. Try learning how to do the method of ‘chunking’ to retain information. “Chunking” enables you to use the grouping of information to your advantage, and you are able to more easily access the information later when you need it.

    One technique for making it easier to recall information is to use “chunking.” ‘Chunking’ involves grouping your information in a specific way, so you can remember it easier later on when you have to use it.

    It is important that you get good quality sleep. Getting enough sleep at night can greatly impact your long and short-term memory. If you have a tired brain, you will not remember things as well. Getting more sleep each night is definitely the way forward to helping your memory improve. Do your best not to have self-doubt. A lot of people think that memory will fade as you get older. That’s not always the case. Making the assumption that you will eventually lose your memory can make it a reality. If people around you are questioning the state of your memory, you’ll begin to doubt yourself. If you believe your memory is good, it can help it.

    Memories cannot be accessed by simply pressing a key. We simply forget much of the information we have learned. To develop recall so it is dependable, use the tips given here. A good way to keep your memory sharp is to always learn new things. New knowledge makes new pathways inside your brain, allowing you to make a lot of new connections. Make sure you are getting an adequate amount of sleep. Getting enough sleep at night can greatly impact your long and short-term memory. If your mind is fatigued, you may become forgetful. Getting enough sleep every night will keep you remembering everything you need to. If you have an upcoming test, try varying your study environment on a regular basis. Changing your surroundings helps renew your enthusiasm and energy for learning. It also helps your memory work better. Your brain will wake up if it senses a change in its usual routine. This can make it easier to learn new information. Try not to drink coffee. Caffeine, which is in coffee and other drinks, can cause dehydration. For optimum performance your brain needs plenty of water. The brain is made up of mostly water and when it is dehydrated it does not function as well as it should. As your brain is so dependent on water, dehydration negatively affects your memory. Pay attention in order to get a better memory. Ask questions about things you need to remember, for instance the spelling of a new name you hear. You could try asking them how they spell their name as an icebreaker. This can help lock their name into your memory. Try using it a few times during the conversation to really make a difference, and you will be sure to remember it later.

    One of the most beneficial things you can do for your memory is exercising. Exercise floods the brain with blood and oxygen which allows your brain to function more effectively. Because memory is part of the way your brain functions, keeping your body and mind healthy are both important to maintaining it. One advantage exercise has in terms of memory is that it helps ward off diseases that often adversely affect cognitive function.

    You can remember information by teaching it to others. Talking often about your special memories, such as those involving your children’s young lives, will help you to retain the memory longer. By doing this, you will be reinforcing the memory, and keeping it fresh in your mind.

    To keep your mind at its prime, regularly exercise it. By playing brain games, you’ll maintain an active brain and keep your memory in excellent condition. Even the slightest variation in your typical routine benefits the brain and preserves memory. You could learn to play a musical instrument, or simply change the route on your trip home. Using your mind is important, and it will help you to improve your ability to recall things.

    1. Every year people keen about bettering their neighborhoods follow careers in protection and law enforcement. Quite a few are confused regarding the choice around learning to be a security officer or a police officer. Regardless that security guards and law enforcement officers might have comparable positions in that they defend their local communities, the jobs are significantly different when it comes to duties, security training, job opportunities and compensation.

      Guards are non-public workers generally compensated to protect residences and individuals. They will wear uniforms to make certain theyre spotted, deterring any kind of potential crime in the vicinity. Quite a few security officers dont have a major external presence. Rather they may answer shady activities on video camera or to triggered alarms. They do not necessarily impose laws; they provide protection from those planning to break the rules of the laws. It is common to see guards at work at shopping centers, concert venues, schools, parking lots, hospitals, pubs and museums and galleries. Quite a few celebrities employ bodyguards to protect themselves from harm.

      A police officer is appointed by a city to enforce all kinds of laws and regulations, including traffic offenses, misdemeanors and felonies. Some police officers focus on working with children or investigating specific kinds of crimes. Police officers get involved before, during and after a criminal act occurs. Unlike a security guard, police offers are required to step into dangerous incidents as they occur.

      Security guard training depends upon several factors, including the selection of the corporation selecting the guard. Security officers are often trained in restraining individuals until the cops turn up to do a formal arrest. Training also includes emergency response to situations which could require first aid and CPR. Security guards who bear gunsmay be needed to have specific training and licenses, based on the state they work in. Extra security officer training is required for those who wish to work with specialized scenarios, like being a bouncer or working in department shops.

      Like a security guard, a police officer will need to have excellent observational skills. Law enforcement officials must respond to crisis cases regularly, therefore it is required to have education in disaster control and supplying safety to the general public. It is also essential for police officers to communicate properly with others, especially when it comes to getting information. As opposed to the guard placement, an official of the law issues tickets for mild violations. A good law enforcement officer is extroverted and pays considerable attention to detail.

      Though law enforcement officers are employed with the city, guards are hired by organizations. Law enforcement officers are bound for legal reasons whereas security guards are bound by company agreements. Law enforcement officers typically make considerably more money than guards but also require more schooling and duties. There is no mandatory educational background to become a security guard but many law enforcement officials are required to hold AA degrees.

      Although the two professions create safety challenges, becoming a cop is the more risky of these two. Police officers pass away in the line of duty often, even in accidents. Both the work opportunities involve personnel to interact with very dangerous people as well as to set his or her self at an increased risk to guard others. Security guards will never be permitted to present themselves as law enforcement workers. Guards must refer to police officers when authority becomes necessary.

      It is vital for everybody to make the best option based upon specific passions and expertise. Both positions play essential parts in the function of the neighborhood. Both forms of workers defend people as well as the area around them.

    2. I could not say that it was really my idea, but it is going to work out rather well if things go the way that I have it planned. I shall be Moving at the end of the month because the landlord has sold the building and the new owner is not going to be allowing any of the tenants to stay. We could probably be a pain about it, because it is not that easy to kick people out for no real reason. I found a better place, and now I am looking for high speed internet providers as that is essential for me. I am basically a business that walks around in whatever pair of shoes I am in, not a big business as I am the entire thing and it all depends upon what I do myself. It has very small overhead though.

      I need a place to lay my head, a small space to work, basically nothing more than a place to put my computers. I have to be connected to the internet as well and it needs to be as big a pipe as I can get, at least as big of a pipe as I can get at a price that makes sense. I could get a T1 connection, but that would be both awesome and way too expensive for me to afford. It would be total over kill. At any rate I found a place that is great for me, because I can walk out the house and go fishing within about a quarter of a mile away. The place is a rented house, which is very small and which costs a lot less for me to rent than the place I have been tossed out of. It is not too hard to figure out it’s a good deal.

      There are many frustrated people that can’t figure out how social media sites can be their best lead generation tool. While it’s all-inclusive and goes in many directions, understand the main goal of social media is to help people. Secondly, think about the fact that you’re communicating with potential customers in a much more relaxed and unique fashion. Now it’s time to get creative! Look into opportunities where you may be able to pay for leads. Paying for leads is not a bad thing at all.

If you are looking for the secrets your competition are using successfully, then the article below will be sure to pique your interests and satiate your desire for knowledge.

This can really jump start your leads while other strategies are going to take time. In this way, you’re balancing your efforts and driving new customers to your site immediately. Find out how people are discovering your business. Use Google Analytics to determine which page they originally came from. Were they lured there through social media? Did a forum bring you the traffic? No matter where it is, it might be a great area to locate potential customers. You don’t just have to buy ad space in local newspapers to get your ads in there. Instead, consider writing an article on a topic related to your business. For example, if you are a landscaper, you can write about how frequently to water your lawn and what the best time of day is.

      Remember that trending on social media isn’t the be-all and end-all of marketing. If you can get any positive buzz at all about what you’re selling, you’re generating leads. When using social media, the content is king as long as you present it in a way which doesn’t sound like spam. If you plan to use pay-per-click ads to promote your website or social media, create ads which actually bring in targeted leads. Make sure it is clear what you’re selling and that the call to action is solid. Don’t make them blink or include fluorescent colors unless you want to drive away potential leads.

      Build your presence on LinkedIn. LinkedIn is the most business-friendly social media channel out there. People use linked in to network and even broker new deals. It’s the perfect place to create lead generation opportunities for you and your company. Invest in a Premium membership as it will allow you to see everyone who has viewed your profile.

          Moving into 2014, the photo was published in a Feb 19, 2014 blog titled "THE AMERICAN STEREOTYPES." It was also published in a Sep 23, 2014 blog titled "Im Breaking Up With Football. Again."

          ********************

          Im somewhat embarrassed to admit that, until last night, I had never been to a professional football game in my life. Baseball, basketball, and tennis: yes, of course. High-school and college football games: sure, though that was a long time ago. Indeed, the last college football game I watched (in person) was in the mid-60s, when I was invited to the annual Harvard-Yale game by a Radcliffe student I had begun dating — a development to which my MIT college roommate reacted, in shock, by howling, "Radcliffe? Youre dating a Cliffie? She must be a pig!" After which he pulled out his flute, every time he thought she might be present when he returned to our off-campus apartment, and played "Old McDonald Had a Farm" until he collapsed in gales of laughter on the stairwell. Highly inaccurate, I hasten to note, and totally unfair. But I digress…

          Anyway, a freelance writer, Mitch Ligon (whose photo you can see here in one of my Flickr sets), invited me to accompany him last night to the New York Jets – Philadelphia Eagles game out in the New Jersey Meadowlands — another first-time experience. I was given a photographers press pass, which gave me access to the locker rooms, press box, various other "inner sanctum" locations … and, most important, the football field itself. I was given a red jersey to wear, told to stay outside the yellow dashed lines that ring the field, and turned loose for the evening. I felt somewhat inadequate, because I knew that the "real" professional photographers would be equipped with high-cameras and monstrous telephoto lenses beyond anything I had ever touched, or could possibly afford; and even though my Nikon D300 and 70-300mm zoom lens is fairly respectable in amateur circles, I had no idea if I would be able to take any decent photos at all…

          The other problem is that I know little or nothing about the nuances of football, beyond the obvious fact that the quarterback either passes the ball, or hands off to someone who attempts to run the ball downfield. Punts and field-goal kicks are also a familiar concept, but if you dont have a good anticipatory sense of who is about to do what to whom, its easy to miss the "moment" when the perfect shot might be available. Also, I didnt really know anything about the players, aside from the respective star quarterbacks: Philadelphias controversial Michael Vick, and New Yorks newly-named starting quarterback, Mark Sanchez. I had looked at the team rosters on the Internet before the game, so at least I knew their jersey numbers (#6 for Sanchez, and #7 for Vick, as youll see in the photos) — but the "action" was often so far away (at the other end of the field) that I couldnt tell whether the starting quarterback, or one of the substitutes, was making the plays.

          Nevertheless, by the beginning of the second quarter I was feeling a little more comfortable — if only because I found it easy to follow along behind the other professional photographers as they marched (or ran) from one end of the field to the other, in order to get their equipment set up for what they expected would be the next great shot. By the end of the game, I had taken 1,100+ photos, including several of Michael Vick in a post-game locker-room interview; and from the sound of the clickety-click-clack of my fellow photographers, I could tell that many of them had taken several thousand. Ill spare you the technical details of my feeble attempts to get some decent shots; I had picked up some good tips from the sports-photography chapter of Scott Kelbys Digital Photography, and I did my best within the limitations of my equipment and my lack of familiarity with the situation.

          What impressed me most about the whole experience was the scale of modern professional football — the scale of everything. Its one thing to read that there are 80,000 people in a football stadium; its another thing to actually be there and hear the simultaneous roar of those 80,000 people as a quarterback is sacked or a long pass is completed. Its one thing to read that a professional football player is 6 feet, 5 inches tall and weighs 350 pounds; its another thing to stand next to several dozen such giants. Heck, I thought there were only 20 or 30 such giants on each team; I had no idea that there were 64 of them (a number which will be pared down as the pre-season comes to an end), or that there might be 20-30 different coaches. And then there are the hundreds of "staff members" scurrying around all over the place, carrying out their various duties and assignments; and there are the security guards and State Police, who spent most of the time scanning the stadium crowd rather than watching the players, presumably watching for scuffles or fights or … well, who knows what. There are cheerleaders too, in this case bearing the official name of New York Jets Flight Crew; I had expected half a dozen, but there were two dozen perky, long-haired beauties, with permanently frozen smiles, who who danced and pranced before the crowd at every conceivable opportunity.

          All of this has resulted in the photos youll see in this album. I had to delete roughly a hundred of my original images, because they were out of focus, or because a referee decided to walk in front of my camera at the wrong moment; and another 900 were "okay," but not terribly exciting. Im sure that none of them are as crisp, sharp, and well-composed as those taken by the Sports Illustrated photographer and the other professionals on the field; but I did end up with 72 "keepers" that I hope youll enjoy…

          … and, yes, I probably will attend another football game or two in the years ahead. Whether Im lucky enough to get down on the field again is anyones guess….

          ********************

          Im somewhat embarrassed to admit that, until last night, I had never been to a professional football game in my life. Baseball, basketball, and tennis: yes, of course. High-school and college football games: sure, though that was a long time ago. Indeed, the last college football game I watched (in person) was in the mid-60s, when I was invited to the annual Harvard-Yale game by a Radcliffe student I had begun dating — a development to which my MIT college roommate reacted, in shock, by howling, "Radcliffe? Youre dating a Cliffie? She must be a pig!" After which he pulled out his flute, every time he thought she might be present when he returned to our off-campus apartment, and played "Old McDonald Had a Farm" until he collapsed in gales of laughter on the stairwell. Highly inaccurate, I hasten to note, and totally unfair. But I digress…

          Anyway, a freelance writer, Mitch Ligon (whose photo you can see here in one of my Flickr sets), invited me to accompany him last night to the New York Jets – Philadelphia Eagles game out in the New Jersey Meadowlands — another first-time experience. I was given a photographers press pass, which gave me access to the locker rooms, press box, various other "inner sanctum" locations … and, most important, the football field itself. I was given a red jersey to wear, told to stay outside the yellow dashed lines that ring the field, and turned loose for the evening. I felt somewhat inadequate, because I knew that the "real" professional photographers would be equipped with high-cameras and monstrous telephoto lenses beyond anything I had ever touched, or could possibly afford; and even though my Nikon D300 and 70-300mm zoom lens is fairly respectable in amateur circles, I had no idea if I would be able to take any decent photos at all…

          The other problem is that I know little or nothing about the nuances of football, beyond the obvious fact that the quarterback either passes the ball, or hands off to someone who attempts to run the ball downfield. Punts and field-goal kicks are also a familiar concept, but if you dont have a good anticipatory sense of who is about to do what to whom, its easy to miss the "moment" when the perfect shot might be available. Also, I didnt really know anything about the players, aside from the respective star quarterbacks: Philadelphias controversial Michael Vick, and New Yorks newly-named starting quarterback, Mark Sanchez. I had looked at the team rosters on the Internet before the game, so at least I knew their jersey numbers (#6 for Sanchez, and #7 for Vick, as youll see in the photos) — but the "action" was often so far away (at the other end of the field) that I couldnt tell whether the starting quarterback, or one of the substitutes, was making the plays.

          Nevertheless, by the beginning of the second quarter I was feeling a little more comfortable — if only because I found it easy to follow along behind the other professional photographers as they marched (or ran) from one end of the field to the other, in order to get their equipment set up for what they expected would be the next great shot.
