We’re All in the News Business Now

It all used to be so simple. Newspapers, TV and the radio ran the news, and businesses used conventional advertising alongside editorial to generate business. Both editorial and advertising ‘worked’ and there was rarely any crossover between the two.

Now conventional media is threatened by the perceived free-for-all that the internet has delivered, the ‘citizen journalists’ rival the TV and the newspapers from their back bedrooms, and advertising seems to have lost its effectiveness as viewers, readers and listeners stop paying attention.

This is bad news if you are a conventional media outlet or a conventional business, but great news if you’re prepared to jump into the news business, at least in terms of spreading the news about your business!

If people are no longer responding as enthusiastically to sales messages, everyone continues to be interested in information – and more and more information – about ‘things’. The internet allows us to research products, services and companies ad nauseam before making a decision to buy. This means that potential customers are now much better ‘qualified’ when they (finally) contact you, since they have found out most of what they needed to know. And the businesses that win these customers are the ones that have the most information on the internet about what they do. This information – in the broadest sense of the word – is ‘news’.

So if you’re currently in a position where there is not much ‘news’ out there about your business, how do you go about rectifying the situation? For more info please visit these sites:- creditcana.com


  • Start telling people your news


The easiest way of doing this is with a regular (ie at least once a month) email newsletter or update. It doesn’t really matter what you call it, as long as it goes out regularly and is primarily informational, that is it’s not just a sales pitch. And if you put a signup box on your website with enough good reasons as to why anyone would want to receive your newsletter, you can grow your list.


  • Start updating your website with this news


Search engines give preferential treatment to websites that a) have a lot of content on them and that b) are updated regularly. You can score on both counts by putting your newsletter articles up in full text on your website every time you send it.


  • Start sending some of this news out to ‘the media’


Don’t expect great results from sending news releases out to your local paper or to a national TV station, unless you have worked out why either of these outlets would want to cover your story. Instead look at your story and work out which media outlets would really like it. The best places may be industry journals or specialist magazines or websites.

Any positive coverage online will not only drive people to your website, it will probably generate inbound links which will help your website’s search engine rankings. Any positive coverage offline will also drive people to your website (whether or not the web address is mentioned) and will raise the profile of your business much more effectively than any advertising can.

News Writing From Forums – 4 Angles to Look for

News writing is an ideal outlet for forum opinions. This form of writing is a great way of turning the views of forum contributors into a strong and readable news article.

Forums are important barometers for online and offline marketers, lobbyists, stock brokers, journalists and others who wish the gauge public sentiment.

Niche forums can tell you exactly how people feel about certain products or issues as well as provide guidance as to what their needs are. For more info please visit these sites:- creditkranti.com

Forums are rich hunting grounds for those seeking information because there are massive amounts of quotes to work with. Journalists love quotes and will make use of their news writing skills to extract the pertinent information and turn it into news.

A news writing expert would have a number of options when tackling his or her forum article and will keep an eye out for the following angles.

1. Reaction – after an important event within the community, you can trawl the forums to measure people’s reactions. This is among the common forms of news writing derived from forums. For instance, you may like to write about the reaction to Martine Scorsese’s Oscar victory, the Colts’ Super Bowl triumph or the election race. The list is endless. You would report on good and bad reaction or even make them into separate articles.

2. Trends – this is not only about fashion. It is a measure of how people think, behave, spend, travel and do anything else in life. You can keep an eye on forums and try to spot changes in how people behave and feel within a community. Is opinion about the war in Iraq shifting? Do people travel less often? Is soccer becoming more popular in the United States? It could be a treasure trove of articles for news writers.

3. Unusual – look for opinions that go against the general. Using news writing techniques, highlight an unusual view and tell people how it goes opposite to what almost everyone else is saying. Bizarre views make for great copy.

4. News – as obvious as it sounds, has somebody said or revealed something that is truly newsworthy? Did anyone claim to have been abducted by aliens? Has someone boasted to have invented the next best thing since sliced bread? Maybe somebody has performed an amazing feat of athletic skill that is worth telling the whole world about.

These are only some of the methods you can use to extract news from a discussion forum. You do not have to be a professional journalist to identify news angles but to have the right impact, you should try to employ proper news writing standards when putting your article together.

This means using  who, what, where, when, why and how system and ensuring that the key piece of information you want to relate is right at the top. You should also make sure that you attribute what you write to the forum contributors, highlighting the url and the date, in case the moderator decides to withdraw the posting later on for whatever reason.

Social Media News Releases Explained

You’ve surely heard the term “social media news release” in all the buzz about the new, social Web, but what does it mean? A social media news release is just like a traditional news release, except that it is also social media and Web 2.0 optimized. In short, this kind of news release encourages interactivity, is easily shared in the social Web, and contains a number of other Web 2.0 elements.

Generally, these additional elements include:

* Multimedia items, such as downloadable images, PDF/DOC files, or audio/video files.
* A way for readers to comment directly on the news release content.
* An obvious and easy way for readers to bookmark the news release in social bookmarking sites, or to share it via email.
* Technorati tags and links to purpose-built del.icio.us pages.

If you or your business produce online or email press releases regularly, you should be utilizing social media news releases. Like everything else on the Internet today, there is an expectation that content will be interactive, easily shared, and will offer sources to similar information. If your news releases do not live up to these expectations, your chances for major media coverage may be hurt. It’s fairly simple to create your own releases, or you can use a service like PRWeb. And, since a social media news release is just a traditional release with added elements, you do not need to change your present format, just include some additional sections. These added elements include: For more details please visit these sites:- crestreports.com

Multimedia section: Here you will offer a number of downloadable items, including PDF or Word documents, such as book excerpts, advanced reviews, white papers, brochures, etc., and images, like author photos, company executive photos, book cover art, company logos. Also provide any relevant podcasts and video clips in this section.

Technorati tag section: Use this section to list links to Technorati pages that are tagged with a list of good key terms relevant to your news release.

Social bookmarking section: In this section, provide links to any of your relevant purpose-built del.icio.us pages. You could also provide links to relevant pages on Digg or any other social bookmarking and crowd-sourced news sites.

Sharing and commenting: In addition to the sections listed above, you should also make it as easy as possible for your readers to share or bookmark your release in any number of ways. Allowing visitors to comment on your news release makes it truly interactive.

Social media section: If you don’t have a newsroom to refer your readers to, you should consider adding a section to your news release that lists where you have a presence in the social Web. Link to your profiles in places like MySpace, Facebook, Squidoo, Twitter, Flickr, YouTube, etc.

Creating your news releases using a blogging platform like WordPress makes it easy to incorporate the additional social media optimizing features. Commenting is already built in, and there are a number of good plugins for adding Technorati tags to WordPress posts and for social bookmarking, among other features.

10 Ways to Use Your News Releases in Addition to Generating News

Recent reports of the imminent death of the news release as an important source of information about your organization have been greatly exaggerated.

Actually, the news release is alive and well and holding its own as an effective public relations and marketing tool. It also remains an efficient means to keeping your company’s name and positive developments associated with it in front of the media — regardless of reporters’ and editors’ oft-stated disdain for such documents as a source of hard news.

Well crafted, informative news releases enable organizations to chronicle information for their own in-house use and to distribute such information to many important and appreciative audiences other than the media.

As the Internet continues to blur the line between public relations and marketing, the news release — when used effectively — remains an important means to maintaining your company’s bottom line as well as preserving its positive reputation.

Besides delivering newsworthy information to the media, here are 10 ways you can use, benefit from or otherwise squeeze mileage out of your company’s news releases.

1. The very act of gathering information then compiling it in a single document — a news release — that tells a story for the world to read, forces everyone involved in the release development process to agree what’s fact, jettison the fiction and prepare to stand behind the result. For more details please visit these sites:- globalmedianext.com

2. News releases become part of your organization’s permanent record which can be referred to and applied for public relations, marketing, policy-making and many other purposes. You can optimize certain press releases by linking them to an in-depth explanation of technical, scientific or other complicated or potentially confusing information.

3. News releases give you a convenient and appropriate means and reason to communicate with external audiences such as clients, community groups, vendors, contributors, shareholders and legislators.

4. News releases give you a means to inform and communicate with internal audiences including employees, directors and trustees.

5. A cogent, factual news release gives your sales force an effective and efficient tool to communicate with prospective clients and remain in touch with current customers.

6. Posting each new release on your company’s website strengthens the site’s informative value for Internet search engines in addition to providing new information for frequent site visitors.

7. You can post your releases on your company blog and get the information circulating quickly throughout the Internet.

8. You can use your releases to inform bloggers who track your company and your industry.

9. You can use news releases to inject information about your company into social media outlets such as Twitter, LinkedIn, MySpace and others.

10. Wherever your news releases appear or are quoted, you can direct your clients and other important constituencies to these media hits to leverage the publicity and marketing impact.

The key point is that by packaging important information about your company into news releases, you create a means to both preserve and disseminate that information. And when done properly and thoroughly, you strengthen your company’s positive reputation as well as its bottom line.

News Until You Puke

I listen to way too much news. I feel if I don’t, I’ll miss the Second Coming, spreading Tsunami, in coming meteor, rising melt water from glaciers, a solar flare that might fry me, alien invasion or next terror attack that has been promised for the past four years. Since I don’t want to miss these things, landscapes I listen to way too much news.

Beause I listen to way too much news, I know way too much about beheadinigs and bullet riddled bodies. I know way too much about car bombs and body parts lying around. A few days ago they found a few dozen heads in boxes in Iraq. This is no way to get ahead in war. I wish I didn’t know about that, but I do. It makes me wonder where the rest of them went. I only know this stuff because I watch and listen to way too much news.

I know too many darn opinions about way too much stuff. I used to listen to Limbaugh, but I don’t think he believes himself sometimes and O’Reilly is just way too angry, smart assed and repressed for my taste, but I know about these guys, because I listen to way too much news. I did hear a few things…in the news about their personal lives, and that was pretty cool to know they aren’t as righteous as they would have me believe. I learned that on the the news. I listen to way too much you know. I listen to Air America. Now that’s a pretty newsy bunch if ever there was one. I like them. They scare the hell out of me, but I like them. They say everything about government and this administration that all the other news I read about them makes me think. They make me feel that the thoughts I have about about all the other news I read about is at least normal. At least I don’t feel so alone in my reaction to all the news I read way too much of.

I know way too much about Politicians, especially Republican ones that love Jesus so much, some of them seem to love making war more and more so he can return or something it seems. They make love too, but seem to often get caught doing it with the wrong people and even the wrong sex. Yikes, but honest, I read it in the news. I read Mrs. Bush moved out of the Whitehouse recently because Mr. President was goofin around with…well, others. Wow, that’s pretty darn big news. Didn’t see it on Fox or AOL though, so maybe it’s not news, or maybe it is but not news for the masses, who knows? Some news tells me I won’t see this news on the news because they won’t make it news, so I guess we lose. Gosh, the news even tells me that this President might not even be the real President and that so many people had their vote thrown out, OK Democratic voters did. Now that would be depressing, but seems true to me. I hear it is true, from the news, twice! For more info please visit these sites:- homeforlostboys.com


Because of the news, I know way too much about CEO’s who take way too much from everyone else to enrich themselves. I mean a LOT of them do. The news fills me in on how much Congressmen and Reps take from the public till, but CEO’s are getting pretty darn good at it too. I see it in the news. Million dollar birthday parties, retirements that make God jealous since now he doesn’t own all the cattle on a thousand hills after all. That former CEO does! Or at least he can. Smirking chimps all, because they always seem so sorry AFTER they get caught, and so shocked because they are soooooo innocent, but I just bet if no one noticed, they’d not be sorry a bit and take some more. But then at least later, we’d have more news. I read in the news where Enron just didn’t hand out the power they said they didn’t have, but did and got big bucks from old people in California trying to keep warm or cool…I forget which. Made me kinda mad. Those guys went to jail, but I hope we don’t read in the news that their best friend, Mr. President, pardons them or something on his way out the door. I read in the news he can do that. It concerns me because I also read that when the President left Texas as Governor and was asked who would clean up after all the damage he did, he said it was not his problem. I hope I don’t read he said that again when he leave office this time. I bet he does. I read in the news once that people don’t change much in their lives and what they were they still are for the most part.

Why do I do this to myself…you know, reading and listening to all the news and opinions about the news and the people in the news who make the news and wish the news never found them? How many heads in boxes do I really want to know about or squashed humans in earthquakes? I have to say, I am worried that if I don’t keep up with the news, I’ll miss the really big one, whatever that might be. I tried once to not watch or listen to the news or the opinions the big boys have about it, but it didn’t work. I got nervous not knowing what I was missing. I read in the news once where they want us to be nervous about the news because fear makes a good factor in controlling us and changing all the rules so we don’t have the same freedoms we had before they made us afraid. Gosh, I can’t win with this news thing! Now I even read news about why the news is the way it is!
I read once where what I thought was news was really not. It was more like a government advertisement that was made to look like news. But they got caught. I saw that on the news.

Well, I guess it’s news, news, news, until we puke or at least until Jesus comes back and shuts down the presses and makes us all go to the church of someone else’s choice so we can be happy. I read where then we’d have to go by Bible rules and stone our rebellious kids and women who were naughty and tithe to the chosen leaders of God. It would be like Jesus Land but for our own good and gay people and whoremongers, but not WARmongers, (what’s a monger?) would get slain and we could only watch stuff like Oklahoma and Nemo finds Noah…and and and..oh never mind, I read about the rapture in the news and I am hoping that at least that will get these people out of here so we can fix the stuff they broke. I’m scaring myself again with stuff I read in the news. I’m breathing hard again..I gotta take a walk. Gosh, I hope if I am blown up or gassed by some terrorist while out walking, they at least get my name right. I read on the news where they mixed up two accident victims…doh…see what I mean!

Coffee News Franchise Establishing Themselves As the Cream of the Crop

William Buckley can tell you first hand that the seeds to entrepreneurship are often found during more difficult times. Almost 20 years ago, revisitall Buckley lost his job with one of Maine’s largest savings banks due to a merger. After several interim jobs, he discovered Coffee News, a small publication given out in coffee houses and other eateries. The advertising opportunities intrigued him enough to buy his own Coffee News local territory.

To say he took to this business opportunity would be a bit of an understatement. Buckley and Coffee News went together like, well, coffee and the morning paper.

It took only a year for the Canadian based company to see something special in Buckley, and offered him the rights to franchise all of the U.S. Eventually, Buckley would go on to purchase the company and gain control of the world wide publishing and distribution rights. Coffee News now has 1075 franchisees in over 22 countries.

Coffee News is a weekly restaurant publication delivered free of charge to restaurants, coffee shops, hotels, hospitals, nursing homes, doctors offices, walk in medical clinics, employer break rooms or anywhere people sit, and wait or eat. Coffee News only has good news and no bad news and is filled with fun interesting stories, jokes and trivia. Small and medium sized advertisers purchase space in the publication in exclusive ad spaces. Only one business per industry category and restaurants are not allowed to advertise unless in tourist areas.

Like most home based businesses, franchisees can choose to run their territory on a full or part time basis, but he states that they “prefer full time publishers. Some stay at home Moms can publish one or two franchises if the children are in school. On the other hand we have some publishers who own 22 franchises and employ several people.”

With over 1000 territories being run, including home offices in Mexico, Venezuela, Spain, Canada, and New Zealand, franchisees come in all shapes and sizes. “We look for people who like people, have good sales and networking skills and are self starters,” says Buckley. “If they have a desire to work for themselves and be independent and make in excess of 100k per year, we would like to talk to them. We have had some excellent military retirees, and other early retirees who have done extremely well. They must enjoy going out on the streets to meet the business owners in their stores.” For more info please visit these sites:- https://www.thewikibiz.com/

Business is thriving, up nearly 25% this year alone. “Coffee News is a very affordable advertising medium for small to medium sized businesses that do not have large advertising budgets. People love to read Coffee News. It is universally attractive so advertisers get great results.”

All this points to a great work from home business opportunity.

According to the Coffee News website, surveys show that the Coffee News publication is read five to seven times. “It has been proven that people absorb more advertising messages before or during eating, as there is a need for mental input – food for thought – during this time period. Coffee News is designed to take full advantage of this fact.”

In 2008 Coffee News purchased a large printing company in Houlton, Maine. This facility is responsible for printing over 11 million copies of Coffee News a year. Not outsourcing the printing is one of the many ways the franchisor keeps costs down, making it one of the more affordable franchises to buy into. To buy into this home based business, a franchisee needs only $8000 for their first territory. Additional territories are then discounted to $5500. Financing is also available after the purchase of the first franchise. The average publisher owns 3 franchises.

To help franchisees reach their potential, free 2 1/2 day training sessions are offered led by corporate staff and veteran publishers. Some topics that may be covered are sales, ad design, billing, collections, distribution, marketing, and startup. This program is optional to take, however, 95% of existing Coffee News publishers have attended. Additional support includes mentor programs, personal calls, free Quickbooks software with a built in Merchants services program for charge cards, conferences, newsletters, regional meetings, and online chat groups.

Advertising experience is not a necessity to be a successful Coffee News franchisee. The operations manual not only teaches how to design ads, but also how ads work, giving the franchisee a better understanding of the business as a whole. The tools provided will allow franchisees to help small businesses even in trying times, making this a home based business opportunity that can thrive during recessions.

“Why be limited to a paycheck when you can make as much as you want” offers Buckley.

There are thousands of franchises available, and Buckley is proud to point out that only 2% of them have over 1000 franchisees, a true sign that his quick growth was no fluke. Will this type of success continue? Its safe to say that as long as coffee and the morning paper continue to form a powerful partnership, we can expect to see Coffee News take advantage and thrive.

Is Your Favorite News Station Biased?

Current news affairs have undergone a lot of changes in the last years and the constant migration to the online world has to be the most monumental of them all. However, gowikia not even the internet can abolish the bias that most accept exists inside our world news. Everything published through a corporation or massive news outlet often has its own secret agenda and those publishing it often do so with their own personal bias. Perhaps not always intentional or even noted by the company, but there’s no denying that exists in a lot of places and has harmed the news industry quite a lot.

It’s Apparent Everywhere

A prime example of the bias of many news corporations was the constant coverage of President Obama, beginning early in his presidential campaign and has yet to slow down in the slightest. Studies have shown that Obama received more attention from the media than any previous or current candidate, but much less negative coverage than any of his opponent. Now of course this didn’t decide the elections, but there’s no hiding the biased opinions various news-casters held on Obama be it good or bad. They no longer delivered powerful and informative news, but rather a stream of personal opinions regarding him or the situations. This sort of newscasting has become a problem for current news media, but online integration has done a lot to combat this issue.

Republican vs Reporter

Many stations that deliver current news affairs take a strong and public political biased on many situations, but don’t see it as wrong. Whether you’re Republican or Democrat, For more info please visit these sites:- https://www.goxfinity.com/
https://www.nytimesday.com/ it should not matter when your duty is to deliver the news to the people who want to hear it. If the news-man is a strong conservative, it should not affect his deliverance of a certain news-story at all, yet it does and is often encouraged by those higher up. Atop this more obvious political bias, there’s a less seen advertising bias. This comes in the form of a certain company or office donating or making an advertisement with a specific news outlet. This almost always ensures that the news media takes a standing with them on most issues, regardless of who or what the situation really concerns. Now how does online news deliverance help minimize this issue? By firing the reporters and corporations.

Welcome to Your New Job

Putting the news in the hands of the people means the people will more often hear or read what they want to. Sure, there are still those who deliver bias reports that favor political parties or are being paid to advertise in their writing, but if you find one writer too bias there’s almost always more who are writing on the same subject.

Serpholic News Media is a great example of a site that allows news to be delivered by the people, but takes a strong standing on letting heavily biased news-reports take a stance on their pages. Hopefully more sites like this will emerge with time and put a stop to the one-sided current news affairs that we see each and every day.

Tips For Booking a Cruise Through Online Travel Agents

Working with an online travel agency to book a cruise can be daunting, since you are not actually face-to-face with a representative. Still, by working with an online travel agent, referral codes you can often save a lot of money. If you decide to book your cruise using an online agent, here are a few tips to keep in mind:

Tip #1: Book through a reputable company that has representatives willing to work with you over the phone.

It is unfortunately not difficult for anyone to set up what looks like a travel agency. In reality, though, these scammers take your money but never book your trip. You do not want to get to the airport only to find out that there had never been any reservations made in your name. Make sure that the company you are working with has a good reputation in the travel industry. If the name is not well known, contact the Better Business Bureau to make sure that complaints have been laid against them. One easy test you can do is to call their phone number to talk to a representative. Phony sites usually have fake numbers, phone numbers that never lead to a real person, answering services, or no numbers at all. A real travel agency will be more than willing to help you book your cruise over the phone.

Tip #2: Read the fine print of your contract carefully and ask questions.

Like with every contract, there will be fine print. Online, it can be easy to miss certain clauses that can end up being extremely important. For example, what happens if you cancel your trip? What happens if the cruise company cancels or goes out of business? Will you have to pay interest if you do not pay for the entire trip upfront? Do you have flexibility to change your dates or flight times?

It is also important to understand exactly what is included in your cruise. When you book online, there is no one sitting in front of you to tell you these things, so read about it and, if your questions are still unanswered, call the tour company before you book the cruise.

Tip #3: Don’t enter your credit card information until you’re ready to book the trip for sure.

You should not have to enter your credit card information just to get a price quote or read information about the cruise that interests you. By entering your credit card information, you might be entering into a contract. The site in question might not require you to book a cruise, but you might be paying for a site membership or confirming that you will book a cruise with the company within a certain timeframe. Make an attempt to not enter any personal payment information until you are 100% sure that you are ready to book the cruise. For more info please visit here:- booking a cruise

Tip #4: Shop around when looking for travel insurance.

Most online travel companies automatically add a travel insurance policy to your vacation unless you manually ask for it to be removed. This can be a good thing – travel insurance is important – but if you shop around, you can likely find a better policy through a third party. Look for a policy that protects you medically and financially when traveling, as well as a policy that will make sure you get a refund in case you cannot go on the trip, for whatever reason. Even if your cruise is domestic, never leaving United States waters, it is important to have an insurance policy covering you.

Tip #5: Ask for information via mail on your destination of choice.

Before you make any decisions, call or email the company and ask them to send you information about the cruises available. Sometimes, having the literature in front of you makes the decision process much easier, since you are not going back and forth between pages online. Hard copies of the information can also make it easier for you to understand exactly what kind of cruise you are booking, and for most people, it is visually easier to understand what to expect when you have the ship information. Asking for a hard copy also helps legitimize the business, making it easy for you to spot scammers.

Role of Sun in the Healing of Ailments

For as long as there have been poets there have been voices telling us that the heart is a seat of consciousness. For as long as Anyone has received a message from the God that created them they have reported back to us to “listen to your hearts”. Each train of religious thought references the heart as a vehicle for discernment.

Ever see what the Dalai Lama does when he replies “I see.” or, bunnydirectories “I understand!”? Why, he looks you right in the eyes and places his hands over his heart. Does he know something we don’t? How could he? Everybody and their Aunties have been telling us as long as we’ve had ears that the heart has a greater place in our consciousness than we allow ourselves to embrace.

It hasn’t always been like this. Somewhere along the line, though not exactly discredited, the thought of living within and using the consciousness of the heart took a major back seat to, well, the thought that the brain is the center of our ability to receive, process and assimilate information.

Lyrically, all the information is there. In fact, the concept is a part of our shared human experience, regardless the language, custom or orientation. What’s exciting is that today, science is beginning to cut loose and reveal to us empirically what we have always known — in our hearts, of course!

Dr. Joseph Chilton Pearce, a pioneer in the distillation of scientific research as it is applied to human development (and especially childhood education) is the author of The Crack in the Cosmic Egg, Exploring the Crack in the Cosmic Egg, Magical Child, Magical Child Matures, Bond of Power and Evolution’s End. He has been gathering information from scientific studies around the globe that provide strong evidence that heart-consciousness is much more than just a metaphor.

There is more than enough data available to begin using what has been learned and to begin to apply it to real-life experience. Much of my own distillation process I owe to the work of Dr. Pearce, who has given me permission to share information based on his lecture materials.

We hear of test-tube babies. In reality, that’s only where they get their very first start. Unless the fertilized egg is implanted into the womb of a mother-host very soon, it will die. Why? Because this new organism cannot become viable until, literally, the spark of life is passed on to it from another living organism of its kind. Life itself, the spark of life of which we all share, has been received by the offspring as passed on through the mother back to humankind’s first ancestor. The electromagnetic field, which lives inside the mother activates the pulse of the newborn.

That pulse is taken on by a clump of cells in just about the center of the new organism. But do you know what these cells are? Science has named them atrial-neural cells: cells that have the capability of functioning as either heart (beating – atrial) cells, OR Brain (information processing – neural) cells. For more info please visit these sites:- https://iemlabs.com/

This is no tiny concept, but there’s a cute little visual that hammers it all home. After a period defined by phenomenally rapid cell-division within the developing organism, a number of beating atrial-neural cells “migrate” in two tiny streams (like horns growing out of a head) from that central clump to a position closer to the outer edge of the organism. There, they come together to grow to become the organ that we know as the brain.

Think about this a moment: The brain actually comes from the heart. It is, in fact, an extension of it. Now feel this for a moment. If you can’t differentiate between thinking about the concept and being able to feel the experience of it, don’t worry, you’ll be getting some tools to help you sharpen your abilities.

But the whole thing gets even juicier, because something more interesting develops. After a while,

Mangoes – The Eternal Favorite

Huge golden mounds of mangoes are a delight to the weary summer eyes. Mangoes are easily the most favourite fruit in our country. One cannot think of summer and not think of mangoes. The hot humid days would become unbearable but for this heavenly fruit.

Scientifically mangoes belong to the genus Mangifera Indica, consisting of numerous species of tropical fruiting trees in the flowering plant family Anacardiaceae. The mango is indigenous to the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia. Cultivated in many tropical regions and distributed widely in the world, 7mgg mango is one of the most popularly exploited fruits for food, juice, flavor, fragrance and color. Its leaves are ritually used as floral decorations at weddings and religious ceremonies.

Mangoes are a sweet favourite across the length and breadth of our country. Each region has its own favourite and some like the Alphonso are loved by every one. Mangoes are consumed both in its raw and ripe state. When raw, the mango is invariably green in color and really sour.

No summer is complete without the ritual of pickling raw mangoes. Whether as pieces or as shreds the variety of pickles that can be made are amazing. Sweet or savoury, spicy or not the mango pickles and murrabas are irresistible. The combinations it makes with chick peas, carrots, manguerose lemons and other such ingredients are marvelous. Pickles made in the northern parts of India taste very different from the ones made in the southern parts. The basic difference being that in the north usually mustard oil is used for pickles whereas down south the pickles are made in gingelly oil.

Raw mangoes are also used to make hot & spicy chutneys and even a sweet’n’sour concoction called loonji. In northern regions of India the raw fruit is used to make aam panna, roomideawhich serves as a coolant against the hot dry winds Loo, which blow across northern and western India. The raw fruits are boiled and the pulp extracted to make this sweet & sour drink. With sugar and dried mint leaves it is the best protection available from the hot dry winds that blow in the northern regions. Raw mangoes are also the source for an important Indian spice aamchoor. It is deseeded and cut into thick pieces which are dried in the sun and then powdered. It is added to various dishes to give a tangy flavor.

Ripe mangoes come in different hues of yellow, orange and red depending upon the regional flavor. The fruit is often red on the side facing the sun and yellow where shaded. When ripe, spaice the unpeeled fruit gives off a distinctive resinous sweet smell. In its center is a single flat oblong seed that can be fibrous or hairy on the surface.

When ripe, mangoes are easily the most delicious fruit around. Its heady aroma is enough to tempt the hardiest of them. Ripe mangoes are largely consumed as they are.

Peel them and dig your teeth into the heavenly flesh of this fruit. Peel them, cut in chunks and then devour them. Just slice them without peeling and eat the fruit right off the peel. Feeling too lazy to cut or peel them, no problem. Squeeze the fruit lightly with your hands softening it. Remove the part where the stalk joins the fruit and then suck that heavenly fruit pulp straight from the fruit. As they say it, “untouched by human hands.” Do as you please or rather eat as you please.

A favourite north Indian way of consuming this fruit is the aamras. The fruit is peeled and cut into chunks. The mango chunks are then blended with a little milk, water and sugar. Voila it’s ready. Normally this is consumed as a part of the meal rather than as a dessert. Another hot or should I say cold favourite is the amrakhand wherein mango puree is blended with hung curd and sugar. Many people add rose water, saffron strands and powdered cardamom to both these dishes to enhance the flavours.

In many parts of India the mango is also consumed as fruit bars or aam papad. Ripe mangoes are cut into thin layers and put together and then desiccated. It comes in two varieties: one is a pretty dry form and the other is a little more fleshy and juicy.

These are the traditional forms of consumption which are still the favorites. Today the mango is consumed as smoothies, ice-creams, and puddings, in custards, fruit salads and what not. Some creative chefs have also come up with interesting ways to combine them into traditional sweetmeats like kalakand (made from milk which has been thickened by boiling for hours).

The mango is not only a delicious fruit but also a good source of various vitamins and minerals. An excellent overall nutritional source, mango is rich in a variety of phytochemicals and nutrients that qualify it as a model superfruit. It is a rich source of not just antioxidant vitamins like A, C & E but also that of B Vitamins and essential nutrients like potassium, copper and 17 amino acids. The skin of certain varieties is edible and is a high source of dietary fiber. Even the seed is used for its medicinal properties.

Online Casino – What Exactly is an Online Casino?

Online casinos are what the name suggests, casinos that are available to play on the internet. You can play the same games as you would expect to find in a bricks and mortar casino.

You can expect to find similar odds that you would find at a land based casino; however, some online gaming sites claim better odds with their slot machines than bricks and mortar counterparts. Some publish their payout percentage audits on their websites, this is something you should definitely check out, if possible, when deciding on an online casino to join as you can chose the one with the highest payout percentage thus increasing your chances of winning.

Online casinos can be divided into three groups depending on how the player can play their games. These groups are:

o Web-based
o Download-based
o Live

Web-based Casinos allow the player to play the casino game of their choice directly on the internet, without the need to download any of the casinos software to their computer.

Stock Market Investing – A Primer for Beginners

Investing in the stock market and making money consistently and in large quantities is something that most dream of. The legendary Warren Buffet was in India a few months back and tomes and more tomes have been written on the methods that he adopts to make money in the stock market. His idea of value investing, primers for sale which he credits to his mentor Benjamin Graham, has many followers. In this article we look at some of the important aspects that you need to be aware of while investing in the stock market. The article is for beginners and for an investment horizon of 3-5 years. The article is specific for Indian investors though most of the ideas expressed are universal.

Investing in Stock markets

Investing in the stock market gives superior returns over the long term and is more tax efficient than all other forms of investment. If done rightly you can get a return of 12-15% over the long term. You can either invest directly or through mutual funds.Stock market investing requires patience, dried sea cucumber for sale risk-taking capability and time. Never invest on tips or just because a particular company is the flavor of the season. Reading financial reports and checking financial ratios may not be easy for everybody but you could look at a few things before making that investment.

Going by your gut instinct is good if you have long experience in picking stocks and if you keep in touch with news flow on what is going on in the sector or the particular company. If you are a beginner it is better to test your hypothesis with some data before you jump in to buy. It would be a good idea to start reading a business magazine which gives in-depth articles about companies or a particular sector.

If your investment decision is based on recommendations by some popular business news channels then the outcome may not be very positive. It is best to take information from all media, do some study yourself, arrive at your own conclusion, and start investing. Stock Market Investing is not rocket science and if you can keep in mind a few points, adderall for sale you too, can pick up good stocks and reap the benefits of higher returns. If you plan to invest in the stock market then the first lesson is to cultivate patience and humility. Try not to invest when the market is running up. Do not think that you will lose the opportunity and buy at a higher price. Always time your purchase when sharp corrections take place. Always remember that success does not beget success in the stock market. Do not be overconfident if you get a few picks right.

Choosing a company to invest

There are more than 6,000 stocks listed in the Bombay Stock Exchange and over 1,200 stocks listed in the National Stock Exchange. Many are listed on both. The stock exchange itself takes the best stocks [30 for BSE Sensex and 50 for Nifty] to make the index and usually picks the companies that are consistently profitable and those that have good corporate governance and show consistent performance. So one easy way out is to select a few among these index stocks in a downturn.

Another method would be to check the last quarter performance and then select a few companies that have shown good growth in sales and profitability. You can get this data from moneycontrol.com (website) or stock specific magazines like Capital Market or Dalal Street. Then look at quarterly performance over, say last 4-6 quarters and see if operations are improving. Look for consistent sales, operating profit and net profit numbers. A rising interest cost without a significant rise in sales in the subsequent quarters will indicate that the capital is not being deployed efficiently. If other income is contributing to a big chunk of the profit, be cautious. Do not go for companies which have mountains of debt. You can check this in the balance sheet or just by looking at the interest being paid from the quarterly result statements. In this way you could get a fix on a list of stocks that you need to keep watch on. Once you have a list of companies ready, cash77 visit their websites and check out the products they make. Search the Internet for news on the selected companies. Make a start, put in maybe 1 hour a week and you will soon be surprised to find that stock picking is not as difficult as you thought.

While buying the selected company fix an amount you would like to commit to a particular stock and allot about 50% of the money and then watch the movement. Please do not get into the habit of monitoring daily. You can do it on weekends and incase the stock moves down you could steadily increase your holding. If it runs away do not jump and invest the balance; wait for it to stabilize and see if it offers value at the higher price. Time your buys in a falling market and sells in a rising market

Profit Booking

Warren Buffet’s philosophy is to buy a stock and sleep on it and reap value. It is often mistaken that Warren Buffet never sells his stocks. This is not true. He is an exceptional stock picker, so unlike us he starts with a big advantage. But he too reviews his investments and sells ones that make money or deviates from his stringent criteria. I would recommend that once you have picked up a stock and it has risen more than 25-50% [you can decide on the limit] you should sell maybe 10-15% of your position. This helps you to recover the capital until you fine tune your stock selection and learn your ropes in the fine art of stock selection. You could temporarily move this profit to a fixed income instrument for further investment in the same stock or any other during the next correction or switch to some other company that you have identified. Never have any emotional attachment to a stock.

Day trading /Short term trading

Stock market investing comes at the higher end of the risk spectrum. If you think that making money everyday by buying and selling on the same day [day trading] and for the short term [within 1 year] is easy, it is fraught with greater risk. In the short term, stock market movements are volatile and impossible to predict. You may think you are an expert at spreadsheets and reading graphs but most of the time it is like throwing a dice. A few can do it but they usually make money more out of years of experience in analyzing daily movements. If you plan to do day trading be extremely cautious. Never do day trading on tips. If you are doing short term or day trading you should never keep your loss making companies with the hope that one day it will give you profits. Sell and move on if the loss is more than 5 %. Likewise if your position is profitable start selling in two or three lots if the market has a rising trend.

Stock market investing if done with discipline, can give extremely good returns. With diligence and patience you can easily get the hang of picking up stocks. Just like in sports or for that matter any discipline, you need constant practice and an effort to update your knowledge. If that is done you are well on your way to successful stock picking.

How Cryptocurrencies Are Adding Complexity to the Divorce Process

If you don’t personally invest in cryptocurrency, then it’s likely that at this point you have friends, cryptoby family members, or colleagues who do. Cryptocurrencies have risen from a very niche market to becoming nearly fully mainstream, and they’ve done so in a very short amount of time. Now that they’re so ubiquitous, there’s a new question to wrangle with, and that’s the matter of how cryptocurrencies are handled in the divorce process.

Determining and distributing financial assets, as well as determining alimony payments, are central issues to be resolved during the majority of divorce proceedings. There are many tools at an attorney’s disposal for the disclosure of financial assets, however when you combine Bitcoin and divorce, you’re left with something entirely new.

Handling Bitcoin and divorce is different from handling other financial assets for several huge reasons. One is the sheer volatility of their value. Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies have been known to undergo absolutely wild swings, both up and down, in value. Therefore, amendedfirearms value either needs to continue to be tracked and updated on the fly, or set at a particular time, when it could end up being worth something much different down the line. In either instance, it’s a less than ideal circumstance for determining and distributing assets or setting alimony.

Another key issue to understand between cryptocurrency and divorce is that these markets and their transactions were designed to be both anonymous and secure. Looking up the holdings, accounts, or transactions of an individual is not the same as looking into a bank account, retirement account, or stock portfolio. The traceability of an individual’s crypto accounts will be difficult at best, and whether or not the courts put any subpoena power behind that remains unclear at this time.

Clearly this is only the beginning of the issue of Bitcoin and divorce, because all cryptocurrencies are still on the rise. As more people begin or continue to use them, and they become more common and accepted, how they’re handled as financial assets during divorce proceedings will continue to be in the spotlight. It’s the fact that they rose so quickly to begin with that has left many people off guard today with how to treat them in such matters. Keep in mind, Bitcoin was launched less than a decade ago. For more info please visit these sites:- https://transmissionsmedia.com/

As always, be sure to consult with an experienced professional in y our local area. While there’s still much uncertainty about how Bitcoin and divorce will be treated, and what types of rulings may await us in the future, an experienced divorce attorney will be able to guide you through the process, and offer insight into the areas of financial discovery and all aspects of a pending case.

Luxury Villas in Thailand

Thailand has, over the past few years, tennis class Singapore seen a large increase in the number of private villas available for holiday rent. Here we investigate the villa market, and make our recommendations as to how to find and book a villa, and where to stay on your next holiday.

These alternatives to hotel or resort accommodation often offer exceptional quality and high standards, but a number of very second rate properties are also broadly advertised on the internet and in some cases offer no more than a room in a tired condominium in a poor location: it is important for the holidaymaker to know how to find an appropriate villa, and to understand the pricing structures generally in place, in order to be sure of securing an enjoyable, clean and properly serviced villa at the right price.

It is perfectly possible to rent your own villa in Thailand for your holiday and to enjoy not only superior accommodation, but also a plethora of services, at rates that in fact make such a holiday the sensible alternative to booking a room – or indeed, for those with friends and family, a number of rooms – in a resort.


Why Thailand?

Thailand is a perfect destination for those who wish to rent their own house or villa, for a number of reasons:

– the Thais are widely recognized as a welcoming, smiling people

– The kingdom’s cuisine is world-renowned; whilst most visitors will know the famous dishes such as Tom Yam Kung, the variety of cuisines and regional specialties is great, and even a serious glutton would have trouble trying to experience the exhaustive array of Thai food dishes in just one stay.

– Thailand is a shopper’s paradise, offering unique silks, handcrafted furniture and a plethora of exotic items at a fraction of the cost of such goods in the West. Clothes, leather goods and decorative items are often at the top of the visitor’s shopping list.

– Thailand offers exceptional value for money: even five star hotels cost a fraction of what they do not only in the West but even in other Asian capitals such as Hong Kong or Singapore.

– Thailand welcomes millions of visitors to its shores annually, smoke-island and personal safety is generally excellent. Any reported crimes tend to be minor, involving jewellery scams and the like, but the more experienced traveler is hardly likely to fall for these. Most visitors will feel infinitely safer in Thailand than they ever would in equivalent capitals such as London, Paris, New York etc.

Which Thai region should I visit?

The visitor to Thailand today is spoiled for choice, with villas available throughout the kingdom.For shorter stays, we would recommend a single destination stay, so that you can avoid the hassles of travelling and fully explore your chosen location. For longer stays, why not combine a stay in two very different locations, allowing you a greater exposure to the country and its diversity, whilst taking advantage of its inexpensive domestic travel networks? (see below)

Thailand is generally divided into four main regions.

Bangkok and the central Plains

Bangkok is a sprawling metropolis which, despite its famous gridlocked traffic and teeming streets, offers a great variety of things to do and to discover, to those with patience and a will to explore. The restaurants in Bangkok are second to none, whether you seek Thai or foreign cuisines, and its weekend and other markets deserve to be explored, as do many of its lesser know temples. A cruise on the Chaophraya river – perhaps by privately chartered long-tail boat – is an excellent way of seeing much of the city without being reduced to tears by the traffic.

The North

The North of the country is home to cities such as Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai and Mae Hong Son. With tropical jungles and hills, the North attracts those looking to go trekking or seek out places of natural beauty. Do try to avoid the larger cities, as tourism is so developed here that you run the risk of simply being “processed” through a number of popular elephant camps and well-trodden hill tribe treks…

What Is Aluminium Free Deodorant?

As the name suggests they are deodorants (and anti perspirants) that are made without the use of aluminium as an ingredient. The next two obvious questions are – why would this be an important consideration when choosing a deodorant? And should I avoid aluminium in my deodorant products? copart

This article will attempt to answer those important and relevant questions. Firstly – why would aluminium content be an important consideration when choosing a deodorant?. The answer to this largely resolves around the belief / theory that aluminium salts may be linked to some forms of cancer (i.e. they may be carcinogenic). By applying deodorants that contain aluminium you are essentially smearing aluminium salts directly onto your skin where they may well be absorbed across into the bloodstream. At this point in time the linkage to cancer is purely theoretical and no definitive studies exist that have irrefutably proven a causal linkage between the two. However many people now believe the sensible option is to err on the side of caution and therefore to avoid the use of deodorants that contain aluminium.

Linked to the above point is the fact the many aluminium free deodorants are also free form a group of chemicals knows as Parabens. Parabens are very widely used in the cosmetic and toiletries industries as preservatives. They have been linked with a range of health problems, notably breast cancer, skin irritation, allergic reactions and interaction with oestrogen levels. They have also been linked to accelerated skin ageing and damage (particularly when exposed to high levels of sunlight). Whilst there is a body evidence to support these health worries it is not yet sufficiently robust to be absolutely conclusive. Unsurprisingly due to the widespread use of this chemical group the cosmetic industry strongly refutes any linkage between health problems and Parabens. Again a cautious consumer may do well to avoid products with such ingredients until the scientific debate is finally settled. woles4d

This leads us onto the second question that was posed – should I avoid aluminium in my deodorant products?. Unfortunately the answer this question is not definitive – it largely depends on two factors, do you believe there is a health risk in such usage? (and the evidence on this is divided) and will the aluminium free products meet your deodorising needs?. There is some debate as to whether aluminium free products are as effective those that contain aluminium. Consensus seems to indicate that overall aluminium free products are not as strong as other deodorants however this should present a problem to the vast majority of people. However if you suffer from conditions such as hyperhidrosis where excessive sweating occurs then these products may not be suitable. It is also claimed that many of these so called “natural” alternatives are not only less effective sweat inhibitors but also more likely to cause skin irritations and rashes, again the evidence for this is anecdotal and no in depth scientific evidence exists. Aluminium kozijnen

At the end of the day it boils down to personal choice – if you want to be extra sure about your health and you do not have an excess sweat problem then you are probably better selecting a Paraben / Aluminium free deodorant.

The Key (A Fairytale) Chapter 14 – Seven Days (Part 4)

“There is only one way that my training can be taken to heart,” Weepasa warned, “and that is if mindfulness is uninterrupted each wakeful moment of each day. Do you understand what I have just said? Each wakeful moment of the day! Initially you will feel lost and confused because when your mind is not permitted to retain recall of what it observes, it becomes very insecure with only awareness without registration. legenday

“But do not succumb to fear. Don’t be concerned about your physical health either, for if you are, you will constantly scheme to keep yourself safe, and this will generate thought and break your mindfulness. You truly must be a fearless warrior to reach the key, for you can easily die from the exertion here. But so be it. The effort will serve you well in the next lifetime.” lgdsilicone

Weepasa just said that I could easily die from training with him here! I finally had to face it; it was time to decide if I was willing to risk everything. After all these years of looking inward, however, I had to ask myself who exactly is was that is risking what?

“Life is very short,” added Weepasa. “If all that you do in this brief moment we call a lifetime is to constantly save yourself again and again, you will never face the ultimate challenge. Saving yourself for the future can be an ongoing delusion, for when that future arrives, you will then save yourself repeatedly. Your habit pattern of quitting will become so ingrained that you will create kamma, the inclination to save yourself continuously, and therefore you will never find the courage to go beyond your ‘self.’ rajafantasy

“Here you have an opportunity to break this pattern of many lifetimes of fear, the fear of emptiness, but a man such as you will never find his limits until he goes there. Don’t stop halfway as you have done so many times in the past. For once in your uncountable lifetimes, overcome your past kamma and proceed to finality without concern.

“Your training begins now. You must practice the inner work of insight every waking moment until you meet the dragon. Seven years of unbroken mindfulness and the dragon will be yours. Never mind seven years – seven months of unbroken mindfulness will accomplish your goal. In fact, if you maintain unbroken mindfulness here for only seven weeks, you will find your key. Disregard seven weeks, for you, seven days of unbroken mindfulness and you will become a key keeper. yateartificialgrass

“You may ask one question.”

The question arose spontaneously in my mind, but it didn’t come from me. I couldn’t say where it came from: “Why help humanity if they posses no self?”

Weepasa’s answer was immediate, almost as if he anticipated the question, “Because humanity suffers.” And with this, the master waived me off.

I left Weepasa’s room with mixed feelings of apprehension and expectation. This definitely would be the most intensive thing that I had ever attempted, for even in the cave I had some control. Now, I would not be in control but would undeniably be completely free to remain within my inner work because of the structure and support here. This was the Master of Insight that the sorcerer had promised, and I knew that I was very close to the Dragon of Atta. I must not falter. How difficult could it be to maintain complete mindfulness for a mere seven days! autoperformancepartsdirect

I began the schedule and quickly discovered that relinquishing control wasn’t easy. After all, I had been controlling my life for over seventy years! But, for some reason, my trust in this teacher was unconditional, and I found that by following this extremely restrictive training of the mind, I was able to let go of my “self,” little by little. I did this by being aware of each thought impulse as it arose, as well as the physical emotions and mental feelings, and then releasing them immediately.

I sat perfectly still during my inner work, not moving once I settled into my position. Any inclination to move was always preceded by a thought or physical sensation that I would let go of immediately therefore invalidating the action that would have normally followed. If I felt the inclination to move, I would release the inclination. This involved becoming mindful of all those initial contacts with my body or mind that precludes action, so that I could see the stimulations clearer and not be so automatic and unconscious in my responses. If the body needed to relieve itself, I noticed the initial sensation in the bladder and the building impulse to urinate. gambleonlineblog

I found that practicing the inner work while walking was not much different from sitting, except that if I became very mindful during walking, the mindfulness became even more refined when subsequently sitting. While on the walking paths, I did not associate with anybody, no talking or looking around, not even a sideward glance. This was enormously important because I knew that only a one-minute conversation; a one-minute escape would ruin my mindfulness for days – if not weeks. I walked at a slow to normal pace from one end of the path to the other with my arms hanging relaxed and my hands clasped in front. I didn’t consciously direct my attention to anything once the walking began. There was only the walking, keeping my eyes two paces ahead on the path. With my mind aware and concentrated, I paid strict attention to the various sensations that arose, and then immediately released them, such as the sensations of the feet touching the ground, and the various joints moving. bbcforbes

In many ways, I was becoming my own teacher, where something beyond myself was helping me see, or rather ‘feel’ in my heart. With the help of my years of inner work, it became known to me instinctively that this mindfulness must be unbroken. One peek away from my mindfulness during my walking practice would ruin it, and therefore I kept my focus intense, and remained within each moment as if I was perched on a high wire hundreds of feet in the air.

My mind struggled and attempted every diversion to free itself from the restraints of this intense inner work. Severe doubt resurfaced, and memories of the past attacked me. I was well aware that these kinds of doubts and hindrances were merely indicators that my deluded mind was squirming, and that the practice was becoming effective, so I didn’t fall prey to any of the beginners’ mistakes of succumbing to uncertainty and reverie. I knew that if I did yield to these things, Insight would be finished.

I tried to never think without being aware that I was thinking, and never talk to anyone. I was completely self-enclosed, and since everything was provided for me, I could simply follow the bells. One bell meant that it was time to sit in my room and practice. Two bells meant walking practice on the paths. Three bells announced the meal in the main building and four bells alerted me it was time to sleep, while five bells awakened me. My entire existence consisted of alternating periods of sitting, walking, eating once a day, and four hours of sleep each night. This was my training – simply following the bells and remaining in a constant, wide-open awareness.

College Football Handicapping Information With In-Depth Analysis-Week 1 Picks

Well tonight is the big night or what we all in the professional handicapping business call “Christmas in August.” Its officially the beginning of the NCAA college football season tonight at 8 PM on ESPN as the LSU Tigers get set to take on the Mississippi State Bulldogz in a nationally televised game. The game currently carries a spread of 17 1/2 to the road team(MS) and this game figures on becoming a showcase to the national championship hopes of LSU. While I have a strong preferance with this pick, I will save my analysis for later in the article. techpiled

As the title of this article states, I am here to offer some specific handicapping advice for Week 1 of the college football season. Now our professional handicappers have been at work all spring and summer long breaking down every team in D-1 with the express purpose of being ready to successfully handicap our games from the get-go like always. For those who aren’t familiar with us, we our currently in our tenth year of professional existence and our website can be accessed by clicking on the link at the bottom of this page. We offer deep analysis and handicapping info on NFL and NCAA football, MLB, NHL, and NCAA b-ball. Out ten year cumulative handicapping record puts us at the 59 percent success mark and has made us a source of trust for many in this line of recreation. What us so good at what we do is that we don’t make boastful claims of pickign at 80 percent(which no one possibly do). We are realistic when it comes to this game as our nearly 60 percent mark is genuinely legit and has allowed us to bring in hundreds of loyal subscribers each year. We have over 4 dozen time-tested game scenarios and trends that we specifically look out for and that have been proven to be big winners. This has enabled us to have great success in this very unpredictable game. So enough with the preaching. Lets look at a few of the trends we like to look at when evaluating Week 1 games specifically. realisticmag

Now week 1 in any sport is a very difficult time for almost all handicappers. The new season brings lots of questions about a team’s legitimacy and whether a team really is as good as they look to be in their press clippings. So you must tread with great caution in week 1. Since this article is about college football, we will stick with this sport in discussing potential pitfalls. mommasays

One thing linesmakers like to do in Week 1 is overinflate the betting lines when a big name, championship caliber team is involved. No one knows before Week 1 whether these so-called “Big Time” teams really do have what it takes to succeed and whether they are fraudulent contenders. Many a team has come into the year with big plans and hype, only to fall flat on their faces. So what you see many a time are these teams giving a bigger than usual amount of points to their underdog opponents and thus in turn make these underdogs live bets. Looking at the lines heading into week 1, we see this scenario unfolding in a bunch of games. Here are some games where a much hyped team is giving a ton of points to its opponent without having anything to show for warranting such favoritism.

WEST VIRGINIA 24 W. Michigan

VIRGINIA TECH 24 East Carolina

MIAMI 18 Marshall

NEBRASKA 21 Nevada

UCLA 17 Stanford

TCU 21 Baylor

OKLAHOMA 40 1/2 North Texas

TEXAS 38 1/2 Arkansas State

PENN STATE 38 Fla. International


These are just some of those type of games mentioned above. Now we don’t feel that all of these favorites won’t cover the spread! We are just simply pointing out how these numbers are so large with no games being played to warrant this type of line. Week 1 historically has seen underdogs dominate the covers and so you must be on the lookout for these types of LIVE PLAYS in order to maximize your intake. Now we like a number of the underdogs listed above along with some of the favorites but since we are a business, I can’t simply give them to you on here. I have broken down two of these games for free on the website but the others are part of our Week 1 subscription package which includes between 15-18 games each week with 5 BEST BETS that have come in successfully at around 65%!

So hence we have our first lesson for college football 2007. I have dozens of more game-winning trends like this that I will periodically share from time to time so make sure you check us out.

BIG 12 Conference:

IOWA STATE(-3 1/2) VS. Kent State: This will make the first game of new Iowa State head coach Gene Chizik and figure on the Cyclones to come out flying in front of the home fans on Thursday night. Chizik is a very detail oriented, disciplined coach, which was lacking under the previous coaching regime and so expect Iowa State to show a great deal of spark and determination as they look to impress their new leader. Iowa State should be able to put up points as Chizik inherits talented QB Bret Meyer and WR Todd Blythe and this matchup is key since Kent State struggled all last season stopping the opposing teams passing offense. Kent State is also adept at putting up points however as QB Julian Edelman is a big time passer who always gives his team a chance. RB Eugene Jarvis should also have a big year running behind the mammoth Kent State offensive line. When you break it down, this game should be a shootout and in that type of scenario, you go with the points when it’s more than 3. THE PICK: KENT STATE(+3 1/2) For more Info please visit these sites:- https://ivu.ro/

Colorado(2 1/2) VS. Colorado State(In Denver): What a way to start the season for both clubs as Denver will host these historic rivals in a battle for ultimate state bragging rights. Was a mild surprise to see Dan Hawkins’ listed as the favorite year due to the fact they struggled mightily in 2006 finishing off games. Hawkins was the right hire for this team in more ways than just game preparation but this team still needs to infuse itself with more talent and less me-first players that marred the previous regimes. This will take time and thus 2007 figures to be another year of struggle for the Buffaloes. As far as Colorado State is concerned, this team definitely can get into the bowl picture as RB Kyle Bell is back healthy after a torn ACL hurt his 2006 production. Any team that can run the ball in the Big 12 is a plus and Colorado State should be able to control the game with its running back and open it up with the occasional big pass from QB Caleb Hanie. Colorado State returns 20 starters altogether and this veteran presence should allow it to deal with the opening game jitters much better than their younger counterparts in the high altitude community. THE PICK: Colorado State(+2 1/2)


Missouri(-5) VS. Illinois: This game is one of the toughest on the schedule to handicap as its being played at a neutral site in St. Louis and also due to the fact that both teams can go either way as we enter the 2007 season. Illinois looks to be a team on the rise as all of fantastic recruiting that head coach Ron Zook has done over the years should pay great dividends this year. Missouri on the other hand has the looks of a potent offense as they return 9 starters from that unit. The Tigers are led by QB Chase Daniel who made great strides in 2006 and who will have two star TE’s in Chase Coffman and Martin Rucker. These two will be incredibly tough matchups all season to opponents as their speed and pass-catching ability will make it tough for most defenses. On the other side of the ball is where the problems lie as the Tigers were atrocious at stopping both the pass and the run last season. So winnings shootouts might be the way this team gets itself into bowl contention. As far as Illinois is concerned, the defense returns fifth-year senior J Leman who racks up tackles by the boatload while also adding three top-100 recruits. The offense also returns QB Juice Williams and RB Rashard Mendenhall. So the pieces are in place for a step up in level of play. This game however will be won with the offense as Missouri’s largely intact unit should put up a ton of points on a talented but green Illinois defense. Illinois QB Williams is a great runner but struggles with his accuracy and so a weak Missouri D should not be pressured as much as they would with a more high powered offensive opponent. Give Illinois time and they will be good to possibly great. This is the season opener however and so go with the more experienced, game-ready squad. THE PICK: Missouri(-5)

What Does the Ultimate Business Team Look Like?

When I was younger and involved in sports I was on all different types of teams. For the first 4 years that I was involved with organized sports from the time I was 9 till 12 Every team I participate on was undefeated champs. It was really remarkable to part of a group like that. I was involved with Football Wrestling and and Track, but mainly my focus was Football. sokaworld

We were not the types of teams that would dominate with speed or size we would execute and win because we worked as a team. I then moved to a new town when I was 13 and got involved with teams that had never won before. To say it was a culture shock was an understatement.

Again it wasn’t so much that the talent was worse it was the fact the the team was dysfunctional and did not operate well together. The was no consistency in the practice, the drills, the play calling. The players on the team were not used in the positions that would serve the team the best. So when times would get tough on the field the players had nothing to rely on. Nothing in their minds that they could think well we will com ack and win because we can run these plays or do these things consistently. kinmagazine

As I went on to high school and college teams I was a part of some pretty successful turn arounds. When I came to my high school they had never had a winning season in football in their history. My last 3 years all were winning seasons. My wrestling team was 0-10 in dual meets and last in the district, my senior year we were 10-0 and Champs of our Division. When I went to Wrestle in College the team had a losing record my last 2 years we were State and Conference Champions. businesschamp

It was interesting to be involved in building champions from losing teams and that is what I do now. I come into organizations that are dysfunctional and identify there challenges and help them turn around. A Ultimate team will identify the strengths and weaknesses of their people and put those people in the best position for them and the organization to succeed.

Teams Build upon their successes and come to trust and rely on the people around them. There are simple inexpensive assessment tools you can use to evaluate your talent and maximize there potential by putting them in the best position for them to succeed. Turnover is reduced by 50% in organizations that we work with because people understand they are part of something special and something that will grow and succeed. businesssalt

Once you have the proper people in place it is easy from there. You put in place lead generation systems that supply you with a flood of people looking to buy your product. You marketing is setup so that people are educated and ready to buy when they contact you. You have a Sales system in place to address the customers needs and you follow up with great customer care and a personal touch. For more info please visit these sites:- https://mibabyshower.org/

One of the factors I personally live by and that propels my success on a daily basis is the philosophy of continually educating myself. Education should be a fun journey and not just a destination. Time is precious. Each day you wake up you have the option of going through the daily motions or taking small incremental steps on a daily basis to improve your life and to get a grasp of the fundamental knowledge necessary to become a success.

When I first started out marketing on the Internet in 1998, I came from pretty much nothing. I wish I had The Network Marketing Magazine Blog to get me started. Luckily I had a place to stay but not much else. The first 2 years I spent learning a lot of stuff and doing a ton of testing. Right off the bat I was earning money but it was about minimum wage online money. I invested 50% of what I earned into Marketing Courses and education. Fast forward to the year 2001 I earned a much more substantial education.

Here is a quote from Robert Kiyosaki. “If you think education is expensive, try ignorance”. My point is I can’t tell you how many multi-million dollar opportunities slipped right through my fingers because I didn’t have the knowledge to take advantage of them. And the most scary thing was I knew this was happening but was powerless to do anything about it.

What Are the Types of Barcode Scanners Available?

Barcode scanners have been around for a long time and have developed along with technology. Scanner technology can be broadly characterized into 3 groups, CCD, Laser and Imaging scanners. สล็อต50รับ100

CCD or Contact scanners, as they are sometimes known, are the oldest of the technologies in use and are being phased out by manufacturers. CCD scanners need to be placed in close pr oximity to the barcode to be read. CCD scanners are traditionally slow to read and process barcodes. 3D Scanners

Laser scanners come in 2 form factors, Hand Held and Presentation.Laser scanners are fast and can read smaller and more tightly packed barcodes. Omni Directional or Presentation scanners produce multiple scanning beams and bench or counter top mounted. Older laser scanners have a rotating mirror which makes them less reliable. However new technology is overcoming the reliability problems with fixed mirrors. Scoopeya

Imaging scanners are the latest technology and come in hand Held and Presentation form factors. A linear Imager can only read standard barcodes. An Area imager can read Linear and 2D barcodes which makes them the most versatile scanner available. Imaging scanners are solid state devices with no moving parts and therefore very reliable. Digital Imaging Countertop scanners are a great solution for retailers that don’t have to take the scanner to the goods. These scanners are very cost effective and don’t take up too much space on the counter and they are extremely reliable. adifferentkindofwork

CCD scanners are the cheapest. Laser scanners vary in price dependent on form factor. Imaging scanners are moderately priced. All technologies are available as tethered (with a cable) or non-tethered (WiFi or Bluetooth) scanners. air conditioning

The large PDT scanners with keypads-long favored by the big retailers for stocktaking, price checking and receipting deliveries-are decreasing in size and more importantly, weight and now come with much faster processors and faster, longer range scanners. These scanners are still ideal in warehouses and distribution centers. However the smaller retailer is well catered for with very small, lightweight scanning PDTs. These units save the busy store time and money and make it easy for staff to receipt goods and do rolling stock takes. fashionburner

The QR code, now seen on many advertisements, has revolutionized mobile scanning technology. Most smart phones with the right app, are able to scan the QR codes and take the user to a landing page offering product information, stockiest information, pricing and discounts that was previously only available from a website that could only be viewed on a PC or laptop. hastighedsoptimering

The CCD Handheld Barcode Scanner – Considering Your Needs

The handheld barcode scanner has revolutionised inventory management, allowing your organisation to have instant access to a massive amount of information almost instantly. Its operation depends on a light source hitting the sensor in a pattern that is determined by a barcode, which is then interpreted by the barcode scanner as a readable string of information. Software then takes over this raw data and interprets the data into numbers, which in turn accesses the relevant records. สล็อต50รับ100

An elegant and simple solution that has saved many man hours and increased productivity, handheld barcode scanners have varying technologies but all serve the same purpose. So which one should you really go for?

Brand is probably the first thing you will come across when choosing a handheld barcode scanner. Among the most common are Symbol (Motorola), Datalogic, Metrologic, Trakker, Intermec and the popular and highly rated Wasp barcode scanner range. For a more integrated solution – that is, the ability to integrate both software and hardware, Wasp Barcode Scanners offer a great range of software to complement their barcode scanners. Scoopeya

Price is always top priority with businesses, especially when it comes to their own assets. Barcode scanners can range from as little as $40 to up and above $1500. What exactly do you get for your money? Four things: durability, scan quality, speed and features. A laser scanner is always going to be more expensive, purely because of the laser itself which is expensive to manufacture. A CCD barcode scanner, on the other hand, is much more economical (see ‘The CCD Barcode Scanner: A False Economy?’ for more details on how economical they can be). Better imaging technology means that CCD barcode scanners are getting to the same quality as laser scanners. Durability really applies to PDA scanners which employ an LCD display making them prone to damage. You can either buy additional protection in the form of rubber sleeves or buy ‘rugged’ barcode scanners which have a number of damage-resistant features built in. adifferentkindofwork

Now we’ve already mentioned it, PDA handheld scanners need to be considered. These scanners make use of both laser and CCD technology, unless your PDA has a camera, in which case you can already utilise its CCD imaging technology using specialised software. A laser scanner Compact Flash card can cost around $300 (the Pretec CF LASER Barcode Scanner for PDA, for instance), while a CCD barcode scanner CF card can cost around $170 (check out the Socket Communications range of scanners). Even though most people will be inclined to try out the CCD scanner add-on due to price, do your research on finding up-to-date drivers and a manual that will guide you through the process. Without either of these, both installation and usage could be a minefield. fashionburner

The last important consideration to make when looking for a handheld barcode scanner is the difference between wired and wireless. If you are working in a POS environment, go for a wired scanner without a doubt. Wireless handheld barcode scanners have a good battery life now, however, up to around 50 hours (the range of Wasp barcode scanners) whilst a CCD barcode scanner may have around 30 hours or 25,000 scans. Also, make sure you choose a scanner that has an integrated battery with docking station for easy recharging – this is the only way to ensure you won’t get caught out when scanning. medicalessentialdiagnostics

When considering your needs for a CCD barcode scanner, always have in mind three things when buying: Brand quality, pricing and needs, features and freedom of movement. Only then will you make a sound buying decision as a result.

Fill Your Sourcing Needs! How to Avoid Scams and Find Legitimate Wholesalers or Liquidators

Sourcing product! This is probably the hardest step to do when you’re just starting out, trying to find something to sell on eBay and make a profit. eliquidsoutlet

But don’t give up! Every successful eBayer has had to go through some of these steps and it can take time. Use this handy information we’ve learned along the way and help yourself to success, sooner!


Searching for Wholesalers

Searching the Internet for Wholesalers can be tricky. In one regard, you can find some legitimate companies with a pretty easy search effort. However, if you found them by searching online, then its likely a lot of other people have found them that simply as well. Then, even when you think you’ve done your research, lurking within the list of companies you find, probably more than half of them either don’t look to be real, professional companies or they offer product at too high a price to make a profit.singsanam

When you search for a Wholesaler or Liquidator, sometimes one of the best ways to find a good one is to search for obscure terms that would really be on a Wholesaler’s web site. vigorousism

Do a search for something like accounting terms, perhaps, like ‘Net 30 days’. Be creative! Once you find a real company that looks to offer product for a nice price, note what terminology and phrases are on the site. Maybe you could search for the words ‘Vendor’ and ‘Wholesale’ together because Wholesalers don’t just like to sell goods in lots, they also buy in larger bulk from vendors for their items to sell. kratom tablets

Another good term to search for is ‘Reseller’. Often, a real Wholesale company will let you fill out a form indicating that you intend to resell the merchandise you’re buying, so that you can avoid paying taxes on those items, since you’re not the ultimate consumer of those goods. allblogsidea


Research the following entities to find Wholesalers


  1. Your Yellow Pages under your chosen product type then “Wholesale or Manufacturers”. (Example: “Womens Apparel – Whsle & Mfgrs”, etc)
  2. Regional Merchandise Marts
  3. Outlet Malls
  4. Wholesale Trade Shows
  5. Manufacturing Firms
  6. Jobbers or Brokers



Find Merchandise to Sell Locally


  • Local specialty markets
  • Your local Craigslist site
  • Kijiji, free classified ads from eBay
  • Newspaper Auction Listings
  • Garage Sales
  • Moving Sales
  • ‘Going Out of Business’ Sales
  • Church Sales
  • Goodwill or other Thrift Stores
  • Estate Sales
  • Government or Local Auctions
  • Fleamarkets
  • Newspaper Listings (and not just your main newspaper but even the free newsletters you find at restaurants, etc)



Avoid Scams and Ripoffs

When using any of the resources suggested here or found on your own, please be especially careful before spending your hard earned money. There are certain things you can do to ensure you’re less likely to be bitten by a false company or a company that takes too long to ship. Tourism Africa

One somewhat backwards way to try to find out about a company is to search Forums or the Internet for the name of the company. Often, I have done this with success to hear a buyer complaining about something in regard to their order. Perhaps the complaint isn’t a big thing, or maybe its a one time thing. Maybe it sounds like everyone who orders from them is getting very sub standard merchandise. From comments like these, it is a little easier to assess whether or not the company may be worth giving your business. For more info please visit these sites:- https://indposts.com/

Suggestions include:


  1. Look for a phone number and call the company. Ask questions you know a Wholesaler should know.
  2. Check out the physical location, even if just done over the Internet thorough online mapping/satellites sites.
  3. Find out if the company will be at any upcoming Trade Shows (or just recently participated in any past ones).
  4. Ask for references and follow through on contacting them.
  5. Find out if they belong to a Trade Association. If not, try to find out why.
  6. Check the Better Business Bureau, local to the company or nationwide, for reports about the company.
  7. Use a free email account when you register with any of these companies in order to avoid odds of spam, phishing, etc.
  8. Check online consumer alert web sites to see what is being said about the company, if anything.
  9. Ask for samples or place a small order initially.
  10. If ordering from an eBay Seller, check their feedback.
  11. When paying, use Paypal’s technology to create a new debit card number to pay with so you won’t be giving out your actual credit card number.
  12. Find out about Shipping and Handling charges before placing an order.
  13. Look up the whois information for the domain name of the Wholesaler’s web site.
  14. Check Market Intelligence sites such as Hoovers, Edgar Online, ThomasNet, and/or Dunn & Bradstreet for business information.
  15. Do a search on the Internet for the name of the company plus the word ‘ripoff’ or ‘scam’, etc. Note: You can probably just about always find someone complaining about a company but you can get a better feel for what type of issues the postings indicate. Did the person not even get their order, was it all salvage items but was supposed to be shelf pulls, or did the shipment arrive later than expected? Depending on the severity of the issues you see, you may find you don’t want to do business with this company.


Even following through on all these suggestions will not guarantee the company is legitimate. What you’re trying to accomplish is getting to a point that you feel more comfortable and can handle the situation so that it leads to the best outcome for you.

Knowledge Process Outsourcing – The Big Game

KPO has developed two years back to encircle several specialist areas that were initially forbidden for offshoring. Take for instance, it has develop a legal outsourcing firm which employ lawyers; a pharma R&D outsourcing company which recruits doctors, PhDs in life sciences and an auto engineering outsourcing firm which requires engineers with CAD/CAM expertise. knowledgehype

According to a Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) study, KPO will grow at a compounded annual growth rate of 46% to be worth $17 billion by 2010, of which $12 billion will be outsourced to India. NASSCOM projects that the KPO sector in India may reach $15.5 billion by 2010, up from $1.2 billion currently.

India, however, remains the proven and favored destination, way ahead of other competitors in most areas, especially financial research, legal and healthcare/pharma research. gossipcare

The reasons that usually influence buyers’ decisions regarding choice of destination are:


  • Availability of qualified manpower
  • Political stability
  • Infrastructure
  • IPR/Data security issues
  • Communication skills
  • Lower wages
  • Proven delivery capabilities


If you are curious to gather these benefits of outsourcing but not possessing gusty willingness to take the calculated risk, go for the option of captive route as it will enable you to protect yourself against possible IPR threats and feared loss of patented material.

Because of the significant hype, industry will now need to take significant initiatives to cope up with the shortage of quality supply of professionals and have to ensure strong training methodologies for their recruits too.

Issues of upgrading data security and patent infringement are need to be addressed more proactively, when you are doing more complex jobs as billing rates also get higher simultaneously. The onus lies on the industry to yield weighs even more heavily as there is positive buildup and expectations from India in the KPO space.

Entrance in KPO is not a deal, but to survive and emerge as a winner will set apart the stronger players in the long run. For every single large KPO player, there are estimated 10 small players offering similar services generally at lower billing rates. We are looking forward for the wave of consolidation in the industry between 2006 and 2008. For more info please visite Here:- odorix

High degrees of specialization and innumerable niches will let even relatively small firms to persist profitably and create a large pool of acquisition targets. So, even as consolidation picks up the pace, the explosion of new service providers will create further fragmentation.

Adding Physical Activity to Your Busy Day

There is no disputing the fact that we are living fast paced existences however at some point we have to make ourselves a priority. For many of us this realization comes after we have hit a physical wall and have begun to experience health problems. In practice we tend to be reactive instead of proactive. thebusinessdays

It is never too late to start and a little is better then nothing. No matter what your situation or day to day routine there are always opportunities to add physical activity into your life. The goal is not for you to come out looking like a body builder or marathon runner but to impact over all health. Most professionals are in agreement that adding small sessions or making small shifts in your routine will lead to greatly improved health. sportsyearly

Whether you are sitting at a desk all day or running around after kids there are ways to incorporate movement. It is recommended that you walk around 5000 steps per day; this does not have to be all at once. By wearing a pedometer and small a conscience decision you can quickly add up the steps. If you work and drive to work park a little further away from the front door of your building, take the stairs whenever possible, and use your breaks throughout the day as an opportunity to get moving. bareng88

In most cases we get a couple of breaks throughout the day, make the decision to not go sit in the break room or lounge but instead go for a walk around the block or walk to the restaurant you plan on eating at. The excuse for many is that they are just too tired or do not have the time. If you have the time to sit and have a coffee you also have the time to walk around the block or down the street with a bottle of water. These are all choices; the interesting thing to remember is a simple walk will give you much more long term energy and alertness then a shot of java. storygame

For stay at home moms, engage in activities that are beneficial for both you and the kids. Spend ten or fifteen minutes dancing, play tag, skip rope, play hopscotch, get on the trampoline with them, or chase a ball. Instead of watching the kids or trying to multitask get involved in just one game a day. Nobody can play a game with kids and not end up laughing and having fun. Make yourself a play date.

Another option for stay at home parents is exercise videos; they are great because your kids (even the three year old) will have fun trying to participate. If you do not take it too seriously and make it into a game everyone can benefit and have a good laugh. Not only will the kids feel great but so will you. As you engage more and more with physical activities you will find you have much more energy. theprimegrill

When you engage in physical activities even if it is for ten minutes on a work break you allow your mind and body a chance to re-energize. You will be much more alert throughout the day, have more patience and be much better equipped to deal with stress. The benefits of physical activity are not just about bigger muscles and slimmer waist, they are about overall health. pariswoman

When you move through out the day you are less likely to be over whelmed by stress, at the end of the day you will fall asleep faster and you will sleep more soundly through the night which in turn leads to more energy the next day. This is a continuous cycle of endless benefits.

Another interesting thing about physical activity and your mind is as you make the effort to move more you automatically make other changes that you are not even aware of. For instance when individuals exercise they will automatically be more conscience of what they eat. This is not the same as dieting it is more subtle but at the same time has huge health benefits. As well once you make the choice to implement one or two small changes to your activity level you will effortlessly make others changes as this becomes your new lifestyle.
