A Sewage-Powered Wastewater Treatment Plant

Technical Writer  amp; Industrial Consultant

As a supplement to my activities as atechnical writer, I have also worked as an industrial consultant. Having worked previously as an aircraft mechanic, a builder of factories in China, and as a frequent do-it-myself fixer of my own car, I seemed naturally set up to work in industry. I had a good overall knowledge of systems, and some people-friendly savvy to spread the word about my knowledge.

While working as an industrial consultant, I was fortunate enough to consult for a Midwestern factory that specialized in making centrifuges. Because I already knew how to make biodieselin my home, my task with this factory was to apply centrifuge technology toward the production of biodiesel in fuel plants. I studied up on centrifuge design and various applications in industry, and I was soon was hired on into the factory not only as an industrial fuels specialist, but also as a part of the sales team.

Word got around that I specialized in biodiesel and other alternative fuels.

An Offer I Couldn’t Refuse

One day a colleague named Chuck – a technician who traveled to customers’ work sites to repair ailing centrifuges – approached me with an offer I could not refuse. In exchange for helping him sell more centrifuge technology to an existing customer in California, I would get to see a really innovative application in industrial centrifuge design that helped make an alternative fuel – fuel made from human poop.

Intrigued, I said yes. I would help him. Within a few days Chuck and I hopped onto a plane to go see our customer.

True Innovation

Chuck and I drove to a wastewater sewage treatment plant located somewhere on the US West Coast to go see the unique technology he had mentioned to me. Chuck introduced me to the plant supervisor “Paul” (he asked me not to use his real name nor disclose his location), who designed and built the toy.

A Self-Powered Wastewater Plant

The wastewater plant that Paul managed was a conventional one in all respects except one: it produced its own power. When I asked Paul how he managed to pull off this feat, he explained it to me with all the pride that a father bestows upon a son – except that this brainchild was a self-sufficient water treatment plant. This commercial water treatment would be very helpful for businesses. As the experts foresee that there will be water supply shortage in the future, utilizing this kind of system is really essential.

Paul’s explained: Municipal wastewater enters the plant and gets “digested” (see more on this process in my other article) in much the same way that many other plants employ. Wastewater laden with filthy human sludge and goo becomes progressively digested and concentrated as water evaporates away from open-topped tanks. The sludge gets passed from tank to tank, getting thicker as it travels.

In the final few tanks where the thickening can no longer be easily done, the decomposed sludge gets passed through an industrial-sized centrifuge (more on this here) which further separates the water from the sludge. One side of the centrifuge pushes out disgustingly thick sludge, while from the other side spills relatively clean water. The thickened sludge gets trucked off for disposal, or gets sold for untold commercial uses.

A Self-Powered Wastewater Plant

The de-sludged water coming out the other side of the centrifuge is key to the self-powered portion of the plant.

While this water is relatively “clean” of sludge and large particles, it still retains a portion of very fine waste particles ideal for use as a fuel. This water is sent through yet another centrifuge that subjects the water to extremely high-power g-forces that virtually force all remaining particles to separate from the water. The wastewater from this process is virtually free of any further particles and drains into the nearby ground where it evaporates. Evaporation of this water kills off any remaining microorganisms that were not captured by the high-speed centrifuge.

As with the previous centrifuge, the remaining particles emerge as an ultra-fine sludge that gets carted off to a holding tank. A pump slowly pushes the sludge into an extremely hot cooker called a gasifier. As the gasifier cooks the sludge at upwards of 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit (538 degrees Celsius) or more, the sludge is forced to revert to its component chemistry.

The sludge transforms primarily into methane gas which gets captured and stored in a fuel tank. The remaining components evaporate off into fuels and lubricants which later condense and get stored in other tanks. What little remaining solid left over from the fiery process is a harmless black carbon ash.

It Pays for Itself, Too!

As mentioned before, the methane gas gets stored in a tank. This gas is what’s used to power the gasifier. Any remaining fuel is used to power a jet turbine that provides power to a large portion of the treatment plant.

The fuels and lubricants captured from the gasification are sold off for a profit to commercial enterprises, and the leftover carbon is sold off as a crude form of “carbon black” – the same stuff used to make car tires.

Nothing gets wasted. Everything gets used.

Not only is this facility self-powered, it pays for itself, too.

Sadly Not In Use Elsewhere

Because the technologies associated with this operation allow a large portion of the plant’s operation to be self-powered, Paul explained to me that this technology was “politically controversial” because it condoned self-sufficiency. For political reasons, Paul’s “mini-power plant” had to be operated under the radar.

He stated that if his utility provider ever found out about his special operation, silently powerful levers would be pulled to influence his boss to get him fired, and the operation would be sabotaged with environmental lawsuits and other political wrangling – all quietly backed by the utilities.

While the technology for self-sufficiency obviously exists through his example, Paul remarked sadly that his was the only “public” operation of its kind he knew of in the US. On the bright side, he said he knew of several private facilities operating quietly under the radar that provided power in a similar fashion for smaller operations such as homes, farms, and other small-scale operators.

Trading In Cryptocurrency- A Welcome Change in the System

What is your reaction when you see a lot of money in front of your eyes? The immediate one is when your eyes pop out and you keep staring at it as though you can never look enough.

Well, given the current situation, there are many people who are willing to kill if the situation calls for it just to earn some extra cash and it has been proven time and time again, which is no wonder that we are living in sad times.

When people switched from cash to card, the dire straits came to ease up a little with but only for a short while as ATM machines started falling prey to devious methods to steal the card number and details, thereby siphoning off money.

Online transactions have been victim to cyber crime where hackers with diabolical approaches hack into the account of unsuspecting victims by posing as their well wishers with promises of doubling their income in return for a little investment scheme.

Bitcoin Breakthrough

The dawn of the new millennium brought with it a new ray of hope for people as they started thinking differently and with the advancement of technology changed times for the better.

Then, with the advent of social media, things started to look up and how? For in 2009, there came a definitive breakthrough that was to go down in the realms of history, which we all know as bitcoin.

Cryptocurrencies are generally held with skepticism due to their uncertainty as to whether they will be of any use or not but bitcoin was the first of its type to break the stereotype.

It quickly became a massive success as a result of which many people, right from rich investors to job deprived youngsters started relying upon it as they saw it as their savior that can turn their fortunes.

There is a universal stereotype regarding bitcoin that it is nothing but a modern day gambling technique which entirely depends on luck and if you’re not lucky enough, then you cannot win.

Bitcoin breakthrough was seen as a welcome change and up till now is the most successful crypto currency of all despite facing grave setbacks within a couple of years of its launch.

Increasing Value

It is a known fact that the decentralized currency is rapidly increasing in value and has high hopes of one day becoming the absolute currency of most western countries or atleast the makers think so.

There came a time in 2017 when bitcoin surged from $1000 to around $10000, which was seen as an unprecedented boom in the market trading business and such a phenomenon was unheard of.

Even its sharpest detractors were astounded at how quickly bitcoin went far ahead of any other crypto money in existence and for the next few months, the numbers kept getting better and better.

The beginners won’t need a wallet for storing their crypto money atleast in the initial stages as they just need to follow the numbers in the market and accordingly place their bets.

Trading Tips

The general question that creates a buzz is Can Bitcoin Revolution generate a steady income? To know that, let’s take a look at certain trading tips that are essential in bitcoin.

  1. The most essential step is to create or select your own trading platform, which include available currencies, trading features, little investment, etc.
  2. You need to have the knowledge of how trade crypto works 
  3. Learn to make a profit by depositing a set of funds into your account to learn trade features
  4. Buy and sell only crypto money like bitcoin, ethereum and litecoin

Where To Look And What To Look For In Swimsuit

It is that time again, the dreaded time of year for women – regardless of their shape and size. Every woman has something about their body that drives them crazy and makes them think there is just too much seen in most swimsuits. It could be her thighs, her legs or even her shoulders and upper body. The key to overcoming these thoughts is to find a perfect swimsuit, and you may have to try on twenty before you get to that point, but it will be worth it in the end.

You see, there are different types of swimsuits that flatter each and every body shape.

A halter swimsuit will flatter those bodies that are larger on top and need more support. Many halter suits are available with hidden underwire, or padded support to give a lift to the bust. Many halters are available in larger sizes, up to an F cup – and available at the local swimwear store. Considering all this, you have the option of using https://www.jets.com.au/shop/swimwear/one+piece which is an online portal that is perfect for ordering swimsuits online that are perfect for all your needs. You also get efficient and fast delivery from them making this whole process much easier for you.

Tankinis are the perfect bathing suit for those with a long torso. It causes the torso to appear shorter, but be sure to try the tankini’s on before purchasing and make sure that it is made for women with a long torso.

A one-piece that has extra fabric or ruching on the front can be perfect for the woman uncomfortable with what the stomach looks like. Regardless of what a woman may think, this extra fabric does not add inches or weight but helps to pull everything together and tuck it all in while disguising the midsection, or the lower abdomen.

Swimwear covers come in the form of dresses, skirts, shorts and are even built into the bathing suit at times. These can disguise the lower part of the body with ease and turn any uncomfortable swimming situation into less of a mortifying experience.

For those trying to appear larger in the bust than they actually are the inserts that come with certain triangle tops and bandeaus are the way to go. These inserts can add up to cup size and balance the bottom while building cleavage. It only takes a moment to sew these inserts in at the corners, or many bikinis have to insert pockets to ensure there are no embarrassing mishaps! If you are trying to increase the appearance of your bust then this is the way to go, as well, printed tops can draw the eye upwards while creating attention towards the bust line.

For those trying to minimize a bust consider a halter or an underwire bra that will lift while offering support. As well, swimsuits with a “v” neckline will draw the eye up towards the face while decreasing the attention that is shown to the bottom of the suit, as well as the bust. Full support is the important thing to remember when it comes to searching for full-figured bathing suits. Good support is going to be the one thing that makes the bust appear most minimal while creating shape and balancing the bottom half.

The Metabolism Reboot Diet

Have you ever wondered why the weight loss diets you’ve followed didn’t have long-lasting results? Maybe you thought it was just your body going against you because you’ve never been naturally lean and your genes have long decided your weight and body-built. Well, you couldn’t be more wrong. Yes, it’s true that genes dictate so many things that might affect your body and health, but it’s also true that you can reboot them. Through her book, Kate Johnson is aiming to answer all your questions about metabolism, explain the way it influences your weight and teach you how to change it and drop pounds forever.

“The Metabolism Reboot Diet” is not your typical diet book for at least two reasons. First of all, the “new get lean science” is entirely based on serious studies and scientific resources. You will learn how your metabolism works, why people are getting fatter in our society and why it is so difficult to lose weight when we gain it so fast. This unique diet uses what happens at the cellular level to fire up your metabolism and help you burn fat. This is exactly why the metabolism reboot diet will have long-term results, and this brings me to the second reason for which this book is so special: it offers you a diet that will not only help you lose weight very quickly but will also keep you lean and healthy for the rest of your life. You have the right to be happy and proud of your body and you deserve to be among those naturally blessed who eat anything they want, don’t exercise at all and still look like top models. Besides her metabolism diet, she also recommends CoolSculpting to Freeze Fat as it is an equally effective process that you can try along with your diet plan. Since there is no recovery time with this process you can easily include this in your lifestyle.

If you read this book, you will see that the metabolism reboot diet is more of a lifestyle. The program will change your metabolism in 6-8 weeks and after this period you will be able to reintroduce foods that were restricted in the first part of the diet. Slowly, but surely, you will reach the point when you won’t need to worry about the number of calories and the foods you eat because you’ll already be part of the naturally blessed group. At the beginning of the book, the author states there are people who have dropped 23 pounds in just 5 weeks without exercising or starving. This is the best motivation to start following this diet, change your life and get the body you’ve always dreamt of.

Kate Johnson will teach you everything you need to know before you start on this path. For instance, you will need to start sleeping better, find a way to relieve your stress and re-balance your life. You have no idea about the strong effects these small issues can have on your metabolism. You will also learn how to avoid hunger, rev up your metabolism, take back control over your life and rediscover the best in yourself. But this is just a glimpse of what you’re going to read about in “The Metabolism Reboot Diet (Increase Your Metabolism)”. You can find it on Amazon: http://amzn.to/ULdrzc.

You can also use Lich with Magic Wand, Boots of Speed, Bracer, Ather lense, gimmer cape, and Force staff in order to increase its defense and attacking power in the game.

If you want to try some other hero beside Lich, then you have Witch Doctor and Lion that are equally good when it comes to attacking, defense, and support.

 

Spirit Breaker

Bounty Hunter and Undying are two enemies that you can use as a replacement to Spirit Breaker. You get impressive attacking powers and HP that will surely help you with your plan.

 

India Almost Crashes Out of T20 World Cup

India, the global driver of Cricket, is facing prospects o early exit from the ongoing T20 World Cup in West Indies. It has lost both its Super 8 league matches and must now beat Sri Lanka by a margin of 20 runs and also pray that Australia beats West Indies by a wide margin in their last Super 8 match.

Although Australia can be expected to beat West Indies comfortably on current for but beating Sri Lanka by 20 runs in a T20 game sounds pretty tough. And that too by a team which is low on morale and is afraid of playing bouncing deliveries.

While teams like Australia and West Indies were making strategies to neutralize Indian batting, our players were diving on fields to impress their IPL Franchise bosses. At night, there were no meetings for upcoming T20 World Cup. Instead, it was ‘wine and dance’ with pretty girls at night parties called ‘IPL Nights’. The board members of BCCI were busy slinging mud at each other and ‘caring a damn’ about the upcoming T20 World Cup.

The players on injury list were trying their level-best to hide their injuries as to not miss a single game of highly lucrative IPL while as soon as IPL was getting over, they were the first one to opt out of T20 World cup. Case in point, Virendar Sehwag, who suddenly realized that his shoulder needed some attention.

The same players who were diving on field to save a single run, seemed least bothered to run after a ball racing towards boundary for a four in T20 World Cup. The same Captain Dhoni who seemed so glum at losing IPL League matches looked ‘least hurt’ even after being ‘almost kicked out’ of T20 World Cup. He is already talking of ‘consolation victory’ against Sri Lanka. Someone should ask him ‘consolation!’ for whom. Indian fans are not going to be ‘consoled’ with a meaningless victory. The Indian fan is not bothered by the fact that its team lost, it is bothered that the team lost ‘even without trying’.

Looking at the drama during IPL and fate of Indian team in T20 World Cup, I believe that Indian Government should dissolve the BCCI and take over Indian Cricket Board under its fold and the ipl 2020 schedule has cleared that players that are performing new in the upcoming leagues will be the eleventh player in the team and they will be given an chance to play in the match and if the team sponsor loves their performance they will the opening batsman. The players wanting to play for India in prestigious events like T20 World Cup should be given the choice to play either for their ‘respective franchises’ OR the country. It has been proved ‘twice’ in succession that our players lack the ‘skill and stamina’ to give their best to both.

We will know weather its ‘love for the game’ or ‘love for the country’ or plain ‘love for money’ which drives our cricketers. At least, we will then be able to search for at least ‘the eleven men’ from this country of ‘one billion plus’ who will want to play only for India. Those men who will look forward to ‘national anthem’ and ‘unfurling of National Flag’ after the game rather than ridiculous partying called ‘IPL Nights’.

Reviewing Your Insurance Coverage and Policies

Do you know exactly what is in your insurance coverage? Do you blindly pay it each month and really haven’t stopped to think what is covered and what isn’t covered? Is the only time you are concern with your coverage is the time you sign up for your insurance and then do you basically forget about it?

We must know exactly what is covered and what isn’t. We also must really understand our deductible amounts and what they mean.

Here are some vital things you should do when it comes to reviewing those insurance policies.

First, let’s look at your home insurance. Is everything covered? Did you add a room onto your house and remembered to add it to your policy? What about that new shed outside? Should you have it covered? You might want to consider it, especially if it houses some expensive tools and the like. Now, look at the coverage amount. If something happened to your home today would you be able to actually use that amount to buy or rebuild? Remember the costs of property values are always going up and down, but the costs of lumber, etc to rebuild always seem to be on the rise. You may want to raise the amount of coverage you have.

What about the contents of your home? Have you recently acquired any jewelry or valuable art that may need extra coverage? If so you may want to have your insurance agent add an extra addendum to your policy to cover these things.

It is really important that you pay attention to all your needs and requirements before you opt for any insurance policy. For instance, Blog insurance does exist and has many benefits and if you are a blogger then blog insurance is a necessity for you just like your home or health insurance. 

Now let’s look at your life insurance coverage. Is it up to date? Has the coverage increased as the cost of living increased? Remember if you took out that policy a few years ago, it costs more today to live than it did then. The question you need to consider is this. If something happens to you today, could your family really make it on the amount you left them? If not, you need to increase the coverage. You should also look at your bills, loans and credit card debt. Is it higher than it was five years ago (or whenever you took out the policy)? If it is, then more of your insurance benefit will go to cover those debts and then your family will be left with a lesser amount.

Is the only life insurance you have is through your work? Many times this is not really enough coverage. Workplace insurance generally will cover what amounts to a full year’s worth of your salary. Your family may need more or you just may want to leave them more in case times become more difficult. Most people do try to have an extra life insurance policy.

When looking at life insurance policies remember term life may be the cheapest route to take. But you need to remember a few things. If you should die late in your term or better yet do not die at all, you have wasted all that money. Term life insurance is cheap because you have a set amount you pay for a number of years (thus the wording of term). After that set period of time is over if you choose to renew your policy you could be paying 7 to 10 times more than you were paying in the beginning. Your other choice is a more permanent type of health insurance. If you are healthy you can get better rates. If you aren’t as healthy as you once were, maybe you should try to find one that doesn’t require a physical before you can qualify.

Finally, what about your beneficiary or beneficiaries? Are these still the same people you want to get your life insurance if something should happen to you?

Once you get the types of insurance and the coverages you like, remember not to forget about them. Once a year or so, review them again. You could even call your agent and discuss any discounts in which you may qualify. Some insurance policies will give you discounts on your home insurance if you take out a new alarm system if you redo the electric wiring, etc. If you happen to have more than one policy through your agent, see if you qualify for a discount. Many companies offer this discount and some even give you a small discount if you agree to have the cost of your insurance premiums to come straight out of your checking or savings account. Just make sure you always have the funds cover them or then they will bill you more for overdraft charges.

Insurance is a basic need. The more we acquire, the more you may need. Be sure you know what you have when and if an emergency happens.

Wonderful Holiday Season with My Boyfriend: A Modern-Day Elf

Everyone’s seen the movie. Will Farrell makes my sides hurt from laughing so much. His innocent, childlike ways…how nice it would be to see through his eyes. Considering how we all live in the real world, though, this is near impossible, right? Wrong. I know this for a fact since I happen to be dating one. An elf, that is. My boyfriend lives for December. To him, there is nothing better than the holiday season. Sure, he loves being around family and friends, attending parties and eating home-cooked meals. For most, the festivities stop there. But for him, as soon as Thanksgiving has come and gone, the door to complete chaos opens. A door leading to thousands of seasonal songs, lights galore, and every possible decoration created for this time. The best love quotes for him deep meaning is also about these festivities during the season.

I walked right into this. Our first date was at Disneyland, I should have seen this coming. He knew every ride and exactly where it was located. He could recount the history of each character and even had his watch set for when the parade would begin. Of course he would be just as excited for a holiday geared towards children and fun. So I sit now, in his apartment, while he prepares for party #1 of 2 set to take place in the next couple of weeks. Should I be helping? I did; I selflessly cleaned the bathroom, the toilet in particular (bachelor pads always need a woman’s touch with these). I also selflessly- I’m throwing this word in again to emphasize how much this all tests my patience- participated in the decorating of the trees. No typo there. Multiple “trees” is correct. As a matter of fact, that’s not even the tip of the iceberg.

When it comes time to have his huge party back east (where we’re from), this is what one will find. Six different kinds of homemade Italian Christmas cookies, 11 Christmas trees, 350 nativity scenes, and 125 of those miniature houses that light up with moving figurines in front. He returns home a week early just to cook, bake, clean and assemble aforementioned figurines. Having never been one to shop on the Friday after Thanksgiving no matter how many great sales were going on, I was beyond overwhelmed when we went on Friday…AND Saturday. He couldn’t get enough. All prepared with a list of items to buy and exactly where to find them, we bounced from store to store just as a modern-day elf and his girlfriend would be expected to do, I suppose. We had our picture taken with Santa Claus and proceeded to go see a movie. Which one? “The Nativity Story”, of course.

So, as much as I had certainly had my fill by December 5th, I couldn’t help but treat him to “The Glory of Christmas” at the prestigious Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove, CA (which I highly recommend). Throughout the performance, he pointed and gasped at all that he saw, completely surprised that there were real camels and angels suspended from the ceiling.

Is this behavior crazy? Yes. However, is it also adorable? Absolutely. For once, I actually find myself writing an article where I don’t have much to vent about. Most women would do anything to have a guy even offer to help at the holidays, let alone take it upon himself to make you feel like you’re 5 again, when there were no such things as bills, car trouble or bipolar bosses. When terrorism didn’t exist and we could get on a flight to visit family at the holidays safely, with toiletries in carry-on bags. Back when the only thing to worry about was whether Santa would enjoy the cookies laid out for him and which present to open first.

Ladies, my advice is this. If your guy has an innocent “obsession”, let him have his fun. Find the humor in it and appreciate this unique quality. And for those of you searching for that special someone, add an important question to your basic three: What’s your name? Where do you live? What do you do? From now on, also ask: “What’s your favorite time of year?” I guarantee this will set the elves…ahem, I mean, keepers apart from the rest.

Valuable Tips For Using Spotting Scope Any Hunter Must Know

Yes, you need the best long range scope for your next hunting trip, but you should know its proper use to bag more catch as well. Say, you have the Celestron – Ultima 80 Angled Spotting Scope, you must learn how to use it as an aid for finding possible targets. Note that a hunting field is wide enough even with a quality spotting scope on hand. Using powerful binoculars improperly would lead you to waste long hours without a good shot.

Now, how should you use a spotting scope properly? Good thing is, there are only few key points for you to remember.

How to optimize the use of a Spotting Scope on your Hunting Trip

  1. Buy the Right Spotting Scope

Always begin by considering the essential factors in choosing a spotting scope. Generally, think of your preferences, the environment you’re going to, as well as your intended use. For example, you may need different spotting scope for birdwatching than for hunting.

Then, weigh features such as magnification, zooming capabilities, image clarity, as well as feasibility for Digi scoping among others. Waterproof, shockproof and heatproof features are great as well.

Note, however, that spotting scopes with higher quality and more features have higher price. So, strike the balance between quality and budget.

  1. Remember Stability

It is important to give a good support for your spotting scope while viewing. You don’t want a shaky scope, so use it with a dependable tripod. Note that higher tripods tend to be shakier, so prefer those you can use while on a sitting position. Moreover, choose tripods with efficient panning and tilting controls to avoid moving your scope itself.

  1. Maximize the Use of Magnification

It is best to choose a spotting scope with good magnification range. But you must use it properly depending on the situation and your needs. Lower the magnification for viewing an entire landscape, for example, then increase it to have a closer look on a target or object. You may also need to lower it depending on the atmospheric condition, especially when it is impossible to view on higher magnification.

On a side note, image quality may decrease when the magnification increases. Choose a scope which balance magnification with image clarity. If you cannot afford such scope, consider lower magnification ranges.

  1. Handle Natural Elements Accordingly

Going hunting means you must face different elements of nature. You cannot easily change those, but it’s possible to do some workaround while using your spotting scope.

Say, you’re using your scope on a tripod, but the ground isn’t leveled enough. Instead of manually levelling the ground, use the leg features of the tripod. Make one leg shorter or longer depending on which you see fit.

Annoyed with glares? Use the shade features of the scope. A mirage locks your view? Zoom out a bit to get a better look.

Just be creative with these types of workaround, and you do not have to worry about many natural elements.

  1. Avoid Over usage

Look through a spotting scope for a long time, and you’ll surely end up with eye strains or headaches. So, limit your viewing time for only up to 10 minutes, then rest for a while. You can also interchange the use of your spotting scope with regular binoculars for every two minutes.

Remember these notes and you’ll surely have fruitful results from using your spotting scope on a hunting trip. Begin by buying the best scope, then use it properly along with other equipment.

My Car is Totaled – Now What?

Getting in a car accident can lead to many headaches dealing with the insurance company. These headaches are compounded when the insurance company says that your car is totaled. When a car is totaled, that means that you can no longer drive your car and they will not fix your vehicle.

If your car is totaled, the only way you will receive any money is if you have comprehensive or collision coverage, or are the victim of an accident that is not your fault. If you are at fault in the accident and only have liability coverage, you are out of luck and won’t receive one penny for your car.

When an Insurance Company Totals a Car

An insurance company totals a car when it costs less for them to give you the value of your car than it would fix the car. Sometimes this means a car that is totally salvageable is deemed “worthless” by the insurance company. The car probably won’t be scrapped. Someone will purchase the salvaged car, refinish it, and resell it. Unfortunately, this means that the original owner of the car usually won’t get that car back.

How Much the Insurance Company Gives for a Totaled Car

An insurance company will give you the actual cash value for your car. This is typically the NADA book value of your car. They do not give you the retail value. They do not consider how much you owe on your car, except if you have special gap insurance coverage.

This is where hiring car accident lawyers can help you in increasing the claim amount that you get for your vehicle. With their expertise, your lawyer is capable of handling the insurance company as they represent you in the court or while dealing with the insurance company’s representative. 

Who is the Check Made Out to?

If you owe money on your car, the insurance company will make the check for your car out to you and your lender. This means that the lender must endorse your check before you can have any of the proceeds. The lender will take any of the proceeds to pay off your loan, and give you the balance. If you owe more than the car is worth, you won’t receive one penny of the proceeds.

What Next?

After your car is totaled, you can try to negotiate with the insurance company if you don’t feel your car is really totaled. If that doesn’t work, you will have to purchase a new car. Keep in mind that you may not have any money for a down payment. Although this may not feel fair, remember that if you are injured in a car accident that is not your fault, you are likely to receive a payment for “pain and suffering” that should help you get back on your feet. However, this won’t come until after you are done with medical treatments and are back to work.

If your car is totaled, you will have to purchase a new vehicle. It’s unfortunate, but you aren’t alone. If you cannot afford to purchase a new car, look for a reliable used car. Always check a vehicle history report before committing to purchase a car.

How to Make Money Tutoring

If you are proficient in a particular subject and looking for ways to make some extra cash, why not make money tutoring?

To make money tutoring students struggling with school subjects doesn’t require much to get started. All you need to succeed is knowledge in the subject and an ability to relate that knowledge well to others.

Your students can range from young children in elementary school to adults in college. What’s more, your clientele isn’t necessarily limited to only students. Many people enjoy traveling to foreign countries and are more than willing to hire a tutor to teach them a new language before leaving for their trip. If your expertise is in Spanish or French or other foreign languages, you’re fortunate as there is a growing demand to be bilingual, as well as multi-lingual, in today’s world. Besides tourists, professionals sometimes need to be fluent in other languages as it helps them relate to their foreign customers.

It helps if you have a background in education, but if you’re gifted in your teaching skills and have taught children, then why not give it a chance?

How do you find clients?

As a mom—If you’re a mom, you may know of some of your children’s friends who are struggling in school and could approach their mothers. Of course, you need to be tactful, as well as sensitive, realizing that parents are protective of their children and their scholastic reputation. But if they share with you how their children need help, then that’s the time to offer your services.

As a business person—-Make up a business card describing your qualifications and services. Then ask for permission to post them on school bulletin boards. As a substitute teacher, I found several of these cards in the teachers’ lounges and lunchrooms. Go to local colleges and advertise your home business there. Post notices in local papers. But the best method, of course, is by word of mouth. Find ways to tell friends and everyone you meet about your services when chatting with them—-soon the word will get out.

What to include on your business card…

Basically you need to explain who you are and your qualifications for tutoring, as well as your rates and times you’re available. References are also helpful if you’ve tutored before, if even for free. Often schools use volunteers to tutor students. However, if you’ve never ventured out before now and tutored professionally, perhaps you could include a positive note on your ad from satisfied parents whose children you’ve tutored for free.

What should you charge?

It’s difficult to assess a standard fee as rates vary according to various circumstances. Probably your rate will depend on the grade level and amount of time and difficulty it takes working with a particular student or subject. For example, maybe you could charge about $20 per hour for tutoring a high school student while charging less (about $15 per hour) for a younger child. On the other hand, if the student is challenging to work with (such as a mentally impaired student), then you may want to increase your rate. Also, you probably should set a somewhat higher rate for tutoring a high school AP class. Depending on the subject, some college-level students may pay as high as $50 an hour. The rate goes even higher when tutoring a master’s or doctoral candidate working on their thesis.

Where should you work?

Find any setting that is quiet and free of distractions. It could be in your own home or at a school library. If it is your home, find a quiet room, shut the door, and let your answering machine take your calls. This is probably not a good idea if you have small children and pets that would interrupt your tutoring sessions. Just make sure the location is one that is conducive to learning, where you and your clients can concentrate and be comfortable.

As you add more students to your business, soon you’ll have more clients than you can handle. It only takes a few good references before your good reputation as a great tutor spreads throughout your community.

How To Set Personal Financial Goals For The New Year 2020

Many of us will remember 2009 as the year of change. Unemployment, foreclosures, reduction in payroll, layoffs and a weak economy have affected most of us with our spending habits. With 2010, quickly approaching, it may be time for us to sit down, examine our personal finances, and set goals that may better prepare us for the unknown road ahead. Here are some suggestions to help you map out your financial future.

Reduce Expenses: Without the reduction in debt, it is almost impossible to save money. Most financial advisor’s will tell you this is a necessity.A habit to cut down expenses is one of the most efficient way to keep yourself on track, which yields benefits even in the long run. Knowing where your money is going each month is the first step. Grab a pad and pencil and start writing down what your expenses are. Look at your credit card statements, bank statements and receipts to tally up items you may not remember. Most people who do this are surprised to see exactly how their income is expensed. After writing down the items examine the ones that are reoccurring. Are these expenses a necessity or luxury item? Buying five dollar coffee is not a necessity, especially when the total amount spent in one month can exceed $100 dollars. If the items are a luxury, see which can be changed or eliminated. If they are a necessity, such as utilities, examine how these items can be reduced.

Eliminate Credit Card Debt: Credit cards are great consumers of your income. Especially if you are paying the minimum balances. With the current economy, many credit card users are finding their interest rates skyrocketing, which in turn, increases the amount of payment due. If you want to know how long it will take to pay off a credit card, go to www.bankrate.com. They offer a credit card calculator. You can enter the information, and based on your minimum payment, it will tell you the length of time for payoff. Make it a goal to eliminate your cards balances, one at a time. For many, that plan may not be achieved in one year, it may take several. But rest assure, once the payments are gone, you will be on the path to financial freedom and available disposable income.

Start Saving: Do you remember when you were a kid and you saved money in a jar? In the beginning, the few coins didn’t amount to a lot, but over time, the coins grew and grew into a large enough sum to have real buying power. It is the same with saving. The in ital amount doesn’t have to be big, but as the balance grows, so will your desire to see it get even bigger. “Saving” has now become a key word with this new economy. Just two years ago, Americans were spending more than they saved, today the opposite is true. Saving for a unexpected event or retirement, must become part of your personal financial goal for the New Year of 2010.

Create a Budget: In the past, with the convenience of equity lines, refinances and credit cards, most of us didn’t give much concern to how much we spent. If we wanted it, we got it. Today, the world is much different. All of us are facing returning back to a budget. When you create a budget, you set a certain dollar amount that is applied to purchases or expenses. This means that before you buy a item, you consider how much you are willing to pay for it. Once this is decided upon, you do not deviate from it. One of easiest ways to help stick to a budget is by only using cash for purchases. The temptation to overspend is more easily eliminated when you know you are depleting your cash supply each time you buy. If needed, there are many great programs and websites that offer budget spreadsheets and advice such as, www.christianpf.com, which offers 10 free budget spreadsheet, or www.docs.google.com.

Delaying Major Purchases: Many people ask me about buying a new car, home, or other expensive items. The answer is that you need to examine whether it makes sense to take on the additional expense. If buying a new car, is being done for no other reason than to update your vehicle, that purchase should be delayed. If your current vehicle needs repairs, it is better to fix the car than to incur a debt of a monthly payment that can last up to 6 years. The purchase may make sense if it is strictly on a cash basis for a amazing deal. With many foreclosures on the market, you may be tempted to jump in and buy a home. Make sure that you have a sustainable down payment. This will help to reduce the monthly payment, making it more affordable. Owning a home comes with more expenses than renting. There are repairs, maintenance, taxes, insurance and those unexpected emergency items. Consider the possibility of these items when looking into the mortgage payment of home ownership. With the uncertainty in the job and housing market, it is important to decide if acquiring debt is a wise decision.

With the New Year of 2010 around the corner, its time to take seriously your personal financial goals and what you want for the future. The goals can be short or long term. By examining your spending habits and expenses, you will become aware of where your hard earned money is going and how to gain a understanding of how it is spent. By taking control of your finances you reduce the stress of dealing with the uncertainty of a volatile economic environment. No one can predict if 2010 will be a better year, but by setting goals and attaining them you can assure yourself, that for you, it will could be.

Models- Your Ultimate Inspiration For Getting A Natural Physique

There is nothing like a well endowed, fit physical body to give you a strong sense of self importance when you get praise and accolades from all directions which boosts your confidence to try out more and keep your body fit for an entire lifetime.

You must have seen your favorite celebrities on television everyday where they are always asked about the secret of their natural glowing skin and fit body, which reflects neatly on their diet plan and fitness regime.

While it is true that they have far greater privileges than the average common man as they can afford everything at the drop of a hat while the latter cannot do so due to obvious circumstances. 

The stars are able to afford the best fitness centers that have the best trainers in town, who in turn recommend the best and most natural food supplements and products which they consume regularly and never miss the gym even for a day, the results are there for the whole world to see.

How Do They Manage?

The celebrities, due to their status, are found giving interviews to various news channels and fashion magazines every other day and they are asked all the questions regarding their personal life, future projects, fitness secrets, etc. among others and they have to answer them truthfully, albeit in a diplomatic way so as to not reveal a little too much, leaving it to the interviewer’s and audience’s intelligence to decipher what they have said.

Fitness freaks are naturally bombarded that they have everything easy while others complain that they don’t have enough time for workout due to the office work and are victims of ridicule and laughter among colleagues.

Well, that may seem relevant in a certain context but, at the same time, it is too simplistic a viewpoint to be taken seriously as there are numerous examples of people balancing both professional and personal lives with equal flair and coming out with flying colors in both.

Celebrities like Angelina Jolie, Kellie Davis, Lori Lindsay, etc. are just a few examples who started out relatively new but are names to be reckoned with in their respective fields.

How To Become a Fitness Model

To be frank, it entirely depends on how well you are into fitness and whether you have that burning passion ignited within that motivates you to keep going and never buckle under stress and pressure and giving up in the process.

Bear in mind that one must never compare your body with anybody else, be it fitness models or even your own friends as that would be a hindrance and will bring in a sense of inferiority complex in you if they get the desired results and you don’t.

One important factor that comes into play is the body structure and the power of metabolism which is different in all bodies and which determine whether the body is taking in all that is being consumed, be it air, food or drink.

In order to become a fitness model, you will need to delve a little more into their personal lifestyle and observe their daily routine through their social media profiles like facebook, twitter and instagram and follow their official accounts as they would naturally post it on their profiles for the sake of their fans as they know that the latter look up to them as idols for emulation.

Should You Allow Your Teenager to Have Plastic Surgery?

The increase of plastic surgery procedures being performed on teenagers is growing in leaps and bounds. The decision to allow your teenager to have a plastic surgery procedure should only be made after careful consideration, proper research and the recommendation and approval of not one, but two licensed and reputable plastic surgeons. This article will offer points to consider in the very early stages of deciding whether you should allow your teen to have plastic surgery.

Does Your Teenager Want The Procedure For Comfort Or Vanity? If your teen has a very large breast size and is already experiencing physical discomfort or pain, this is far different than your teen wanting permanent eyeliner applied. The reasons behind the desire for plastic surgery should be a strong deciding factor in whether to allow this procedure to be performed. Allowing your teen to have plastic surgery to simply enhance an area of her physical appearance that she is less than thrilled about may set up a pattern in life where every perceived imperfection needs to be “fixed” before she feels content with herself.

Plastic surgery is no laughing matter and it has to be dealt with seriousness. You can’t just go to a surgeon and have your face structure changed as per your convenience because it can and has gone horribly wrong on numerous occasions and there are no better examples than film stars, who have ended up far worse looking than they did prior to plastic surgery. Regardless, Plastic Surgery Marketing has become a common practice in our society as many people want to look like their favorite celebrities but teenagers need to do their homework and not resort to childish tantrums.

Is The Plastic Surgery Procedure Covered By Your Health Insurance? Plastic surgery procedures can cost as much as ten or fifteen thousand dollars depending on the specific procedure performed. If your teenager is desiring a procedure that has no medical need, then your insurance company will not pick up even a fraction of the cost and you will need to be sure that allowing your teen to have the surgery will not put your family into unnecessary debt.

Every Surgery Has It’s Risks. Even though your teen may be having a plastic surgery at an outpatient surgical center and the procedure seems very simple and uncomplicated, there is always the risk for infection and possible negative reactions to the anesthesia. You will need to make your teen aware of these risks and prepare yourself for a possible health issue to arise from the surgery.

Are There Healthier And More Natural Alternatives To The Plastic Surgery, Or Is It Something That Time Will Take Care Of? If your teenage daughter is drastically overweight and wants to have liposuction done, is she looking for a quick fix? It may be far more beneficial and healthier to have your teen use strict portion control and exercise to rid herself of the excess weight before turning to plastic surgery. This will also help to initiate a healthier and more balanced way of life that your teen will take with them to adulthood. Are there herbal remedies to make the facial scar your son has less noticeable or has the doctor informed you that it will fade with time? Rushing to the plastic surgeon to have a chemical peel done to take care of the scar as quickly as possible may not be the best way. Researching ways to address the perceived physical imperfection and letting nature take it course may be far more sensible than immediately deciding upon plastic surgery as the only viable option.

Does Your Teen Suffer From Extreme Low Self Esteem? You may think that allowing your teenager to have a breast enlargement or liposuction will immediately and permanently change your teen’s life and make all their insecurities go away. This is rarely, if ever, the case. Low self esteem may seem to be rooted in physical appearance, but it usually has a much deeper origin. Helping your teen to develop close and satisfying relationships, pursue new interests and generally be more comfortable in their own skin can create a much more permanent and positive effect than a few hours in a plastic surgeon’s office.

Personal Guide On Avoiding Student Loan Crisis

For many Americans, student loan debt is a heavy burden that stays with us for a number of years. Often times we hear horror stories of people amassing hundreds of thousands of dollars in student loan debt for a degree that may never pay off. Then, they often get fast cash with payday loans online especially on family emergencies. Well, regardless of what sort of degree you pursue or what school you choose to go to, there are a few tips and tricks you can use to avoid building up nearly as much debt.

The biggest thing I’ve learned in the six years I spent pursuing three separate degrees (English, Foreign Language, and Business) is that the hardest thing to do is budget for college accurately. Often times we go into it thinking that tuition is going to be the bulk of our expenses. This is where we usually get duped. Besides tuition, secondary expenses like food, housing, and supplies eat up a lot of money. In my experience it is best to budget another 20 percent on top of whatever your tuition bill is.

The biggest cost for college students besides actual tuition is housing. In the two years I’ve worked for my university, the common comment I hear from students is about the amount of money spent either paying rent for near campus allotted housing, or the extra money added on to their tuition bill for staying in a dorm room. Student housing can run up to as much as a full house payment depending on the type of accommodations you choose. The best way to avoid this expense is to either live at home (sorry to any parents reading this) or to live with roommates so that the expenses are decidedly lower.

Another big college expense is food; yes, that’s right, food. University meal plans can be expensive, especially considering how busy the average student is and how little they actual get used. If you add on top of that the likelihood of eating out at fast food restaurants or dine-in places, you have one major headache coming your way when it comes time to pay the bills. The best way to avoid this is to either opt out of university meal plans and eat at home, or if you’re stuck paying for it, going for an all-inclusive dining pass that allows you to eat whenever and wherever on campus you would like.

The third major expense is supplies. Supplies can be anything from books and pencils to exam booklets cliff notes and lab equipment. The problem with budgeting for supplies is, you don’t really know until you start the class. The biggest way to avoid sticker shock is to ask questions, look up what books are required and where to get them, buy supplies early and in bulk and talk to your teacher to find out any special requirements. Once you have a solid list in hand, you can begin shopping early and be more selective.

Now that we have a better budget that lets us control how much we borrow, instead of borrowing $10,000, we can borrow $7,000, which over four years can make a major difference. As you get accustomed to the ins and outs of your particular university, you can plan better and tailor your spending habits accordingly, in the end you can turn a six figure student loan debt into a much more manageable number.

How to Prevent Back Pain During Christmas

During Christmas we just pretend to do everything that has not been done the entire year. We want to decorate our houses, clean up everything, and go shopping to find that most wanted gift on sale. The Christmas season gives a lot of chances to get back pain, especially when carrying heavy shopping bags at the mall, lifting heavy packages or decorating and cleaning the house. If things are left unchecked, one can even end up so badly as to get a Spinal fusion surgery for relief of chronic lower back pain. Back pain can truly ruin your Christmas if you don’t prevent it from the start. Once you get an injury the only way to get rid of your pain is by using medications or missing the Christmas reunion resting at home. Here are some simple tips to prevent you from experiencing back pain during Christmas.

Ask for help

Get extra help especially when cleaning the house or putting up Christmas lights and decoration to reduce the chance to get back pain. By getting help you will bend less to pickup the Christmas decoration stuff.

Prepare your body

The holiday season is a movement season and most of the people are simply not prepared for the increase in activity. The body muscles and joints are just not prepared for the load of work and the body will let you know with back of pain. Do some exercises and stretching prior the Holiday season to be in shape when Christmas arrives.

Skip Assembling the Gifts

If you want to give any type of furniture, bicycles, kid’s playground or any other gift that requires a difficult and painful assembly, you can ask for an assembly or installation service. Skipping assembling is better than skipping playing with your kids.

Drink Plenty of Water

This is something that can be forgotten often, especially in Christmas, when we are thinking in all the things we have to do before Christmas.

Relax don’t Stress on Christmas

If you need to take a break from the Christmas preparations, take it. You can go to a spa for a massage therapy, a beauty salon, or just find a good quiet place and read good book.

Stretch your Back

Stretching your back is very important to avoid injuries. Tightness can lead to a pull or strain at the back muscles. Stretching can be part of a routine when you get off the bed every morning.

Rest Enough

Get enough rest, and sleep well preferably in a good orthopedic mattress to prevent back pain on Christmas.

Wear Appropriate Shoes

Not wearing the appropriate shoes can cause back pain because of bad posture. Make sure you are wearing the right shoes for every occasion on Christmas.

Sit straight and limit the time

Sitting for long hours can lead to back pain, watch for a correct posture while sitting, and stand up more often to pickup some food, share with others, or go to the bathroom.

Eat well

Eating well can also help prevent back pain. Eating healthy food can also prevent back injuries. If you are feeling tired and fatigued the cause may be lack of nutrition. You can also take a multivitamin supplement during this holiday season to maintain a healthy immune system.

My Spine Surgery

I have worked as a medical biller for many years. It is hard to empathize with patients when you don’t really have personal experience of medical problems or what they are going through. Well, that all changed for me this December. I was having excruciating back pain. I went to a surgeon that I used to work for. I was told that I had a large piece of disc herniating and it was causing my extreme pain. I was told that surgery would be a good option for me because I was experiencing pain, weakness, and numbness. There was a possibility I could have permanent nerve damage if I didn’t go the surgical route. New Jersey Spinal Medicine & Surgery is New Jersey is where my surgery was performed. And I was really happy with my results there. The surgeons were really professional and experienced as they helped with every stage of the surgery. After my surgery, the doctors recommended the best recovery treatment as well.

I knew that it was a relatively benign surgery. They were only going in to take a piece of disc out. I wasn’t having any hardware put in, no fusions. I am young (36) and in relatively good health so I figured three weeks of recovery time and back to life as usual. I was uncomfortable the day after the surgery when I was released to go home. I thought that was just normal because I did have surgery after all. As the next week progressed the pain was not getting better. I still had pain going down my leg and felt like there was a knot in the left quarter of my lower back. I went back to the surgeon who says I am now also suffering from bursitis of the hip. I am given an injection into my left hip. Boy did that hurt. I am given more pain medicine and told to go home and take it easy for a while. Finally, after several more weeks, I went back to work. Just hoping I could make it through the day with the pain. I also thought that if I got back to my regular life eventually I would strengthen back up and the pain would go away. That lasted about three weeks. I went back to my surgeon and it was decided I needed to stay home and rest. So back to the couch I went. After a few more weeks of rest, I went back to the surgeon and he sent me to a Rehabilitation Specialist, a Pain Management Specialist, and ordered physical therapy.

The pain management specialist gave me two sets of injections in my spine. That was not fun at all. It helped with some of the pain. Enough so I could return to work. I have now been going to physical therapy for about seven weeks. I have worked hard and gotten the strength back in my left side. Before I started I could not stand on my left leg now I can do that with no problem. I still have some pain, nothing that is intolerable though. This has been a much more challenging experience than I thought it would be. I have read a lot of articles from people who have had similar experiences with back pain. I have learned that the back is a very unpredictable part of the body. Some patients can have surgery and be better than before and others, like me, spend a long time recovering and suffering. It has been a long winter and I look forward to continuing to recover and hopefully be pain-free.

Benefits Of Medical Spas

Howard Nusbaum is the President and CEO of the American Resort Developers Association. He has presided over the industry-lobbying arm for going on nine years, during which the industry enjoyed enviable double-digit growth every year.

One thing has changed – he no longer has to “yeah, but” when he tells outsiders he works with the timeshare. Recently he sat down for a wide-ranging discussion of the industry.

It is the most recent of several interviews I have conducted with Nusbaum during his tenure, but the first in about six years. (I intentionally did not reread any of the old ones; however, later this week I will dust off one of the old ones and reprint it for comparison purposes).

Here are some of the issues Howard Nusbaum discussed.

Consolidation

Among the reasons the flags (hospitality brands like Hyatt, Hilton and Four Seasons) have been gravitating toward timeshare is the added benefit they receive from maximizing mixed-use properties. Bringing more people to the property, whether they are hotel guests, timeshare owners or conference attendees increases the use of revenue-generating facilities such as restaurants, spas, and golf courses. For instance, My Ethos Spa is the elegant destination for sophisticated skin that people of any group can visit for skin treatments and care. You get affordable services that are also beneficial for our skin and body.

The Economic crisis

Unlikely to double-digit revenue growth, likely to impact new projects that would come online in a few years (Howard Nusbaum: ‘A humbling experience’)

Owner Protection

Working with developers and local authorities, ARDA makes an attempt to quash the companies specializing in resale rip-offs, especially the “postcard” companies that prey on unsophisticated owners, using lies and half-truths, making it seems like they are doing the frustrated owners a favor by taking the deed off their hands, as long as they get paid 3 grand at the same time. He feels they primarily “prey on the elderly”.

Nusbaum would like to see transparency come to the secondary market, minimizing, if not eliminating upfront fees prior to the resale of ownerships. He feels, accurately, that “too many companies focus on getting upfront fees” having little incentive to actually sell the timeshare, having been paid in advance.

ARDA has conducted Resale forums to brainstorm ideas to bolster the secondary market.

The use of the internet

Through the years ARDA has primarily been a resource used by the industry. Members of the public have not been very aware of the organization or its services. They are attempting to change that with public relations efforts, including the creation of a consumer-oriented site, VacationBetter.org, emphasizing the importance of vacations, both for quality of life and better health. Of course, the site also emphasizes how timeshare can improve the quality of vacations.

Fractionals

Already meeting the needs of the working affluent as well as the super-rich, as fractionals mature there will also be more mainstream product suited for “lunch bucket Joe.” Wyndham’s South Shore Tahoe in Zephyr Cove is an example of a more mainstream fractional product.

The rapid growth and acceptance of fractionals in part is piggybacking on the increased credibility and maturity of traditional timeshare, and timeshare has benefited from the unsullied reputation of fractionals:

“Fractionals have helped to build upon the already growing more positive image for Timeshare. In the early days, timeshare got a negative reputation that came from poorly executed hotel converted products rather than today’s more purpose-built products. So the upscale fractional image is good news for timeshare. Plus as a term fractional is a mere aptly descriptive term – a fraction of a whole interest. It also led the way for urban timeshare. And finally, imitation is the highest form of flattery. The birth of fractionals is a testament to timeshare’s success as a great vacation product.”

Long term picture.

Nusbaum is optimistic about the long-range state of the industry. Market penetration remains at about 6% of the target market already owning, leaving great potential for growth.

“A big reason Nusbaum is has a positive outlook for the long-range – the 72 million retiring baby boomers; “Boomers have a different view of retirement; not sitting in a rocking chair on the porch. This is the generation that invented Botox and Viagra. They get pizza by the slice and they want to see the world. For the price of a modest automobile, I can own vacation for the rest of my life”

Nusbaum continues, “This is the main reason timeshare is stronger today than it was ten years ago.

Plastic Surgery: Dermabrasion

A relatively quick and simple way to remove small amounts of scarring from acne or other skin issues is to have dermabrasion performed. Dermabrasion is used to remove the upper areas of skin so that new skin can form. This process eliminates the defects that were evident in the old layer of skin. The real plus to dermabrasion is that it can almost always be done with a local anesthetic in a doctor’s office. 

Dermabraison uses a spinning brush or wheel to remove layers of skin. 

Basically, dermabrasion is like giving portions of your face a carpet burn. Most dermabrasion only removes a few outer layers of skin. If deeper layers need to repaired, other procedures are usually employed. In some big instances, the entire surface of the the face is treated with dermabrasion, but this is the exception and not the rule. Dermabrasion cannot really fix deep scars, lines, or wrinkles. 

Acne scarring on the outer layers of the skin is a good candidate for dermabrasion. 

The skin is peeled away and gauze is used to minimize the bleeding. If you have a very large area treated, plan on taking a few days of vacation to allow your skin to heal. Within a week to 10 days, new skin will be covering the injured area. It will probably be pink and may itch. After a few weeks, a more natural skin tone will begin to emerge. If the pink color is a problem, just cover it with make upPlan for a short time of discomfort and healing. The fix will be permanent. 

 

 

During the procedure, the skin will be cooled to make it more firm. 

Ice and/or a freezing spray will be used to lower the temperature of your outer skin. By having the skin be more firm, the dermabrasion technique is more effective, and the doctor has more control. The cooler skin should also bleed less during the procedure. You will not be able to have dermabrasion on skin where you have had a recent face lift. Some other skin conditions may keep you from being able to have this procedure while they are present. 

The ultimate recovery time depends on you and the extent of the dermabrasion. 

Everyone’s body heals at a different rate. So, the precise healing time depends on your situation. If the dermabrasion had to be done over a large area or was used to remove deeper skin issues, the recovery and healing time will be longer. Your doctor should be able to give you the best advice on what to expect for your procedure and physical condition. 

 

 

You will need to take some precautions after the dermabrasion is completed. 

The new skin will be very sensitive to sunlight and that’s the reason why Millions of people undergo plastic surgery or cosmetic surgery every year because of sun burn and harshness. You should use a good sunscreen every day regardless of the season. Wash the area regularly to keep infection chances to a minimum. The dressings need to be changed as prescribed by the doctor. If you are given medications to take, be sure to take them as directed until they are all used. Keep your follow up doctor’s appointments. 

Simple Traning Program For Fast Weight Loss Among Women

Coolsculpting is a new solution for taking fats away from your body immediately. Freeze Fat Away with CoolSculpting in New Jersey today, and see stunning results. But if you want solutions you can do at home, fast fat program is for you. 

Fast fat loss for women is very achievable with a certain kind of strength training program. I’m a certified personal trainer. 

Foundation of fast fat loss for women: Lift heavy weights. 

Definition of heavy: Not based on the numerical value of the dumbbell, barbell or machine stack. It is based on effort level. 

There are three effort levels: challenging, difficult, and straining. For what would be considered “heavy” for your unique abilities, you should aim for the “difficult” and “straining” categories for most of your routines – if fast fat loss is your goal. 

 

 

For fast fat loss, women must get used to the idea of straining a little, but not killing themselves. 

A little straining is perfectly okay for a woman, especially a woman who seeks fast fat loss. But not every set must be straining. Most should be difficult. 

The difference between difficult and straining is that with straining, you find yourself wanting to grunt or groan, if you already haven’t, and you complete the rep even though you thought you wouldn’t. Ummmphis what it takes to complete the rep, and it’s so tough that you must concentrate to maintain proper form. 

Women will experience fast fat loss with a heavy strength training program. 

This is because heavy weight lifting will create a fast fat loss hormonal environment inside your body. For fast fat loss, a strength training program is as follows: 

Type of exercises: “Compound” should be most of them. Compounds work more than one joint. These include deadlifts, any kind of squats or lunges, leg presses, lat pull-downs, rows, and any kind of chest presses. 

 

 

Frequency, number of sets: Each strength training workout is about 45 minutes, three times a week. Number of sets can be three to five per compound routine. Triceps and biceps isolating exercises are not necessary; these muscles will get hit from the back and chest routines. 

Number of reps: 8-12. If you’re already doing this, and have had minimal weight reduction, the resistance is not heavy enough. Increase the resistance if your current routines are compound. You should be straining for the last few reps, or experiencing difficulty on the last few reps, of each set. 

Rest in between: 60 seconds! This may necessitate reducing the resistance in order to achieve 8-12 reps. On any given set, if you can do more than 12 or 13, the resistance isn’t heavy enough. 

Don’t give up on fast fat loss, women! There’s nothing as sweet as easily slipping on size 8 pants in the fitting room and gloating at the mirror! Fast fat loss is within your reach!

Helpful Notes About Female Bloating And Weight Loss

There are many weight loss solutions today, but only few produce ideal results. One of the best is coolsculpting, which is approved by many experts. However, what Is CoolSculpting? Knowing about freezing fats and eliminating it may sound not ideal for women like you, so you still go back to common weight loss methods. 

You’ve seen the television ads. Women carrying weight scales around their ankles, strapped by ball and chain, consumed with the number this scale reflects. For these women, checking “the number” every day can be a demotivator in the challenge to lose weight. As a result, many women are opting to ditch the scale and simply measure weight loss in terms of inches. While considered well meaning concept by most fitness trainer, counting inches has also left some women feeling demotivated especially when the inches, specifically around the waste area, do not seem to melt away. For these women, the issue may not be weight loss or gain but, instead, an issue of menstrual related bloating. So, what causes bloating? 

 

 

 

 

Bloating, before, during or after a menstrual cycle is a real and significant issue for women. For women working to lose weight, finding methods to control bloating is vitally important. Research has suggested eating foods high in complex carbohydrates, such as breads and various other starches, can attribute to the development of bloat within a woman’s digestive tract. As a result, when dieting, consuming low amounts of complex carbohydrates is highly recommended, even in small or moderate quantities. In addition to carbohydrate consumption, women who are dieting, and want to avoid bloating, should also avoid the consumption of alcohol and prescription medications as alcohol has shown to increase the bloating affect and prescription medications may increase the level of bloating through water retention or edema. 

In addition to weight loss dietary issues, bloating may be attributed to inactivity. In professions involving excessive sedentary work, women often find bloating is excessive and not well controlled. When working in a profession which requires an excessive period of sitting, opting for regular breaks, on the hour, will assist with blood flow and circulation, improve digestion and will improve and the bloating affect. 

 

 

In addition to regular work breaks and dietary modifications, women are also encouraged to consume at least 1,200 milligrams of calcium per day. Research has shown the calcium implication in the reduction of bloating to be significant especially in women who are bloated in response to a menstrual or hormonal fluctuation. This calcium consumption can be obtained through foods such as milk, yogurt and cheese or through a daily supplement. 

For many women, in a diet or weight loss program, the focus often moves from weight reflected on scales, in terms of pounds, to the measurement of inches lost. In doing so, many fitness experts agree the focus on inches lost will reflect an overall improvement in fitness health as well as dietary health. For women “measuring in”, ensuring the proper dietary recommendations and fitness levels are sustained, will ensure additional inches are not attributed to a bloating affect in the female body.

Tips to properly clean the urine stains from the rugs

Check the material

One of the most important things to do before cleaning the urine stains from the carpet or rug is checking the material of the rug. The method of cleaning varies with the material used in the rug. Most of the carpet free of glue can easily be cleaned, but if the rug is made up of material like silk or cotton, then you should consult any professional to perform cleaning on these rugs and get rid of urine stains.

Check the dye stability

Before starting the cleaning process, you must check the dye stability of the rug to ensure that it is safe to clean. You can check it by using a neutral Oriental rug cleaner and white cloth.

Wristwatch Review: Men’s Fossil Decker Vintage Bronze Watch

Bronze and brass. They are classic alloys. There’s something about them that makes you think of tall ships, steamers, sextants, astrolabes, old fire trucks, and Roman legions. In a world full of stainless steel, the bronze look gives any timepiece instant gravitas. I like my Fossil Model DE-5004 Decker watch because it has that classic bronze look that would have been perfectly fashionable 80 years ago. The caseback is stainless steel and the case is a bronze-looking base metal. The timepiece is water resistant to 10 atmospheres.

The Fossil has a brown leather band, a parchment-colored dial, white luminous hour and minute hands, a second hand with luminous dot, and chronometer functionality. The case is 44 millimeters in diameter and 12 millimeters thick. The band is 22 millimeters wid, but a tad short. When securing the watch to my 7 1/2 inch wrist, the buckle closes with only two more holes to go. That barely leaves room to get the remainder of the strap through the loops. Nevertheless, the Fossil Decker has a rich look and is comfortable to wear.

The layout of this vintage-looking watch makes sense and works well. The Fossil Decker has a canted date window at the four o’clock position. The date itself is presented in white lettering on a black background. Hours are marked by luminous white batons, minutes are represented by simple black hashmarks, and the bezel has tachymeter markings. The hour and minute hands are rectangular and almost entirely covered with luminous material. It makes the watch easy to read at night, but I think a more ornate set of hands might have been more in keeping with the classical style of this watch. The paul hewitt phreps manufactures the best watches ever classic either flexible this brand is serving the best of the both worlds.

The chronometer uses three subdials on the face of this Fossil. The top subdial (at 12 o’clock) appears to measure tenths of a second and runs for the first minute of chrono activation. The bottom subdial (at 6 o’clock) measures the elapsed seconds and the third subdial (at 9 o’clock) measures the minutes for up to an hour. This chronometer is controlled by two buttons – one on each side of the crown. The top button starts and stops the chronometer and the bottom button stops and restarts the chronometer. A long press on the bottom button when the chrono is stopped resets the instrument. In truth, the chronometer functions are seldom used, but they do work and could be used to casually time things for curiosity. For real athletic competitions, a stop watch or digital chronometer would be easier to read and offer more precision.

Overall, the Fossil Decker is a beautiful watch with an elegant, classical style, in rich brown and bronze tones that work well in any man’s business casual warddrobe. This watch sells for a variety of prices up to around $140. However, by shopping carefully, and taking advantage of a deal at the Fossil outlet store, I was able to get mine for around $70 because I bought two watches. It makes the perfect gift for any man with classical, refined, tastes in timepieces.

The Connection Between Obesity and Back Pain

It is obvious that people come in many shapes and sizes. Each one unique , truly no two people are the same. That being said, people are often categorized by their bone structure. Some have large bones, some medium and others are small boned. While bone structure can influence how much someone weighs, it is not an “excuse ” for being overweight and obese. Clearly these are totally different things. Obesity is one of the most common cause for back pain. Which is why you should always focus on your diet and do regular exercise. This is where you can take help from back pain in Austin TX. You get custom made diet plan and muscle strengthening exercises.

In the USA obesity is becoming a growing problem. Some consider it to be at epidemic levels. And even more alarming is the number of children that are considered obese. Why is this happening? Many people blame the food industry for allowing addictive ingredients in food products. These ingredients come in the form of additives, and these additives are believed to increase apetite . While this is only theory and speculation, what’s not speculation is the fact that children and young adolescents are becoming obese at an ever increasing rate.

Obesity can lead to other serious health problems especially when it starts at such a young age. One of these problems is that being overweight contributes significantly to back pain. Back pain is so common in American society that we often just brush it off as a fact of life. However, chronic back pain should be taken seriously.

Back pain can literally affect every part of the body. Beginning with the bones, muscles, joints, nerves, and nervous system. It is like a domino effect where one problem contributes to the next and the next. It can also become a vicious cycle. Obesity leads to back pain, which creates an situation of inactivity, and the inactivity leads to increased obesity which then again creates greater back pain! One is creating more complications for the other. Also, the inactivity decreases muscle tissue which in turn slows down the metabolic rate.

While it is simple to see why many could become discouraged in this situation, it is important to look at how taking small steps can improve the situation dramatically. By taking part in some activity everyday on a consistent basis, this can stimulate the muscle tissue and decrease muscle loss. Weight bearing activities such as walking are excellent choices. Of course anyone with back pain should avoid lifting or straining their back.

Simply by walking a minimum of 15 minutes a day, the process of fat loss can begin! And the cycle can be reversed. By increasing a bit of muscle tissue, and increasing metabolism, your body will be able to burn fat. Even by losing a few pounds at first, the pressure on the joints and body can feel liberating! The back pain will diminish and then you will be able to continue to scale up your walking even more. So in this case causing a positive chain reaction.

Setting small daily goals can help to mentally overcome the overwhelming feeling of obesity. Taking it one day at a time, and taking baby steps can really make a significant difference. And more importantly it creates a habit. If you can stick with something for 21 days it creates a new habit. Therefore, commit yourself to walking everyday for 21 days and see how your life and your body can change.

These changes in your body will include stronger muscles, less fat, better mental clarity and so much more! And as your muscles become stronger, the pressure on your back will become lighter, and the spine will feel happy again! It is also advised to add abdominal exercises to your walking routine which will significantly increase the strength of your abdominal muscles, thus taking even more pressure off your back. Stretching is also something you should add to your walking or exercise routine.

.It really can be simple! Just take a step and start today. Regardless of what activity you choose to combat obesity and back pain, it is important to consult your health care professional prior to beginning your program. This way, your progress can be monitored and also your physician may give you special guidelines to follow such as heart rate and length of exercise time.

How to Successfully Run a High Impact Promotional Sale

High Impact Promotional Sales can do many great things for your business. They can create fantastic cash flow, move old inventory, give great customer perception about your retail store and increased your sales and profitability long-term. The key to having a high impact promotional sale is to be priced right and to create curiosity and excitement.

First, it is best to price as much merchandise as possible. The more you price, the better your sales will be. Let the customers see the regular price and the sale price. Here a few tips for a high impact promotional sale.

The best time to run is before one of your peak periods. For example, you can have a sale in November until Thanksgiving. You should have the high impact sale for at least 3 weeks and 4 or 5 could be even better depending how much old inventory you have. You should have at least one high impact sale a year, but may want to consider 2 per year. This is addition to any regular sales you currently run in your retail store.

Everything on the store should be on sale. If you are at keystone, the minimum discount should be 10% off. Here is a suggested breakdown of ad prices:

10% off – Should be about 10-15 % of the store

20% off – Should be about 70-80 % of the store

50% off – Should be about 10-15% of the store

Your best-sellers should be 10% off. You should run 2-3 items for added discounts during the promotion for one week at a time. Normally, I would take some of the 20% off items and run them half off.

Normally, taking discounts of 30-40% do not produce more in sales. That is why; the discounts go from 20-50% off. Also, if you make signs, studies have shown that ½ off sells better than 50% off. If you had some old items or slightly damaged, you might want to consider 75% off regular retail. Most likely, you will be losing money, but the benefit is turning dead inventory to cash. With this cash, you can buy better selling items. The key to running a retail store is turning the merchandise.

If your products have a lower gross margin than keystone, you need to makes some adjustments to the discount amounts, but try to have most of your items still at 20% off with the help of Best Medical Website Design Firm, which can provide you with all necessary information about your business. You may want to use a lower discount, but if you dilute it too much, the promotional sale will not be effective. Too many retail owners get hung up with gross profit percents than gross profit dollars. The purpose of having this sale before a peak period is to gain new customers for your peak period.

What is the best time to start this sale? I would say for most stores, it is Tuesday. Many stores can use Sunday  amp; Monday for pricing. Many stores are closed Sunday anyway, but there is no way, you are going to give up a day’s business. If you stay open trying to price on Monday, it will never get done. Many customers on Monday will come back for the sale and will spend much more than originally planned.

I would price all the 10% and half off merchandise first. In case, you do not get finished, you can have signs and tell the customers anything not priced is 20% off regular retail. Make sure you signed anything that is marked half off and would be wise to have a display of something right near the entrance. You want the customer’s to get a perception of great pricing. Also, do not put signs on merchandise that is 10% off unless, it is a high ticket item showing regular and sale price.

How do you advertise this sale? I would either have a banner in front of your store or several signs that say” Everything on Sale”. You would be able to reuse these for future sales also. Even though it’s gaudy, colors such as Hot Pink can be seen far away and drive curiosity. You could place an ad in the local paper Monday and have radio advertising Monday. Also, send a direct mailing to your store mailing list on Saturday. Basically, tell them everything is on sale for a limited time and when the sale starts.

High impact promotional sales ran correctly can help a struggling business or create cash for the busy season ahead. Go ahead and have a high impact promotional sale, you may be surprised with the results.

Earache Remedy, Wrinkle Remedy, Clean Teeth Remedy

Natural Remedy for an Earache

We all get an occasional earache, especially our children. The best way I have found to calm the effects of an aching ear is to rub banana tree oil inside the ear. The ache will be gone within 30 minutes. Of course if you do not have banana trees to bleed, you can usually find the oil in a health food and natural remedy store.

So what is this formula for effective anti-aging and disease prevention? People go through hundreds of products every year and never find something that really works. You can even check out Purtier Placenta to see a list of effective and natural tips. You can even check put popular products and their prices that are going to help you with anti-ageing. Also, all these product are completely safe and easy to use.

However, please remember that even with the ache gone; there may be something more serious happening. The pain is there for a reason. It’s telling you something is wrong and you need to pay attention to that. I recommend giving yourself no more than twenty four hours after using the oil. If the pain returns or a fever flares up, go see a doctor right away. Most likely it is an ear infection, however, during the healing process; you can relieve yourself with the banana oil. Just a drop on the end of a Q-tip, rub into the ear that’s causing discomfort, and voila, no more pain.

Not So Natural Remedy for Facial Wrinkles

It’s scary sometimes looking in the mirror and noticing new lines on my face. There is no real cure for this, but there are ways to slow the process of aging down. There are so many creams made to “eliminate”, “reduce”, or “fade” the lines in your face. These creams run anywhere from $8 to over $100. I have even heard of some in the thousands. I admit I buy a low priced, generic anti-aging cream on occasion, but because I add another ingredient to the cream, I rarely need to purchase any. The only reason why I use the cream is to soften the texture and change the odor of the added ingredient. Many people who know this trick use the special ingredient straight out of the tube. I keep an empty facial cream jar available at all times so when I run out, I can add equal amounts of lotion and my remedy to one jar. Thus giving me two jars for just over the price of one. Some of you out there have probably heard of this anti-wrinkle remedy, but for those who haven’t, it really does slow the aging process down. When the face swells, wrinkles are created. You may not even notice the swelling, but your face does swell. The swelling causes stretching which in turn causes the wrinkles. I suggest using this mixture before bed and the first thing in the morning. The remedy? Preparation H or any hemorrhoid medication. It takes the swelling down on your “back side”, so it also works on the face and neck. I do not consider this a “natural” remedy, but it works nonetheless. And it works for everyone. Women and men.

Brush Your Teeth the Natural Way

I’m a bit obsessive, compulsive when it comes to my teeth. I brush anywhere between three to five times each day. My habits have been carried on to my children. My daughter at age fifteen has never had a cavity. My son at age thirteen has had one small cavity, but he is cursed with my sweet-tooth. As a child my mother was very concerned about our teeth. I had the worst case of cavities in the family, but eventually her persistence rubbed off on me. We traveled a lot when I was growing up, and during our travels we discovered the licorice root. The root can be found in any health food store. In between brushings you can carry the root in your mouth. Chew on it or just let it rest in your mouth. It tastes great, it keeps your breath fresh, and it cleans your teeth. What more can you ask for?! Just be sure to brush as well.

Keep your teeth clean, reduce and slow the signs of aging, and take away the pain from an earache. All three of these remedies have worked for me. I haven’t had a cavity in thirty years, people are shocked when I tell them my age, and my children are always grateful when I bleed our banana trees to ease their pain.

A To Z Guide Of Buying Foosball Tables

Ever thought of playing the fantastic game of football, without having to use your feet, inside the safe walls of your house? Well, now these thoughts can very much become a reality. These games are quite popular; every other resort seems to have one in the centre of their clubhouse.  The addition of this into your playroom will definitely boost up your fame game among your friends, at least.

A little more about these interesting games

The game consists of a table designed in the shape of a football field (you must have seen one if you are conserving buying it). Its main goal is to score a higher number of goals compared to your opponent.  The board/ table has eight rods, each studded with plastic players of different coloured jerseys. All you have to do is control the rods, thereby moving the players and getting the tiny foosball to the goal. The game can get highly competitive and just as fun. Now, these tables come in all kinds of varieties, depending on what size the customer wants. Portable tables are also available, in case you want to carry the joy around. There are many types classified on different categories;

I. Orientation

  • Freestanding

If there is a lot of space you can spare just for a foosball table, then don’t hesitate to get a free-standing table, it is normally larger and stands on four legs. You will be able to play for longer. However, there a lot of things you need to consider choosing such tables. Firstly, you should know that you cannot move the table around frequently without damaging your floor or carpet. Thus, placing the table in a convenient spot is advisable. Tables with adjustable legs are another example of the best foosball tables.

  • Tabletop

This best for families that want to casually play at home without taking it to a competitive league.  These are normally smaller than the free-standing ones. Those that are considering buying this should have a table of appropriate size for the game. Once the game is done, it can easily be kept in a storeroom until next time. However, users should take care that they don’t damage their game when moving it, which is why it is wise to pick a high-quality game.

 II. Number of players

  • Just for two

Small tabletop foosball games are perfect for two players. Users can play a small game for family time or before running off to school/ college. Such tables also come in cheaper costs as compared to others. However, only two people can play at once, so it is not ideal in situations like parties or gatherings, no one would want to queue up to play a game, right?

  • Up to four

Such tables are considered perfect, as two people would be able to play on each side. They are slightly bigger; hence, they are suitable for all ages, especially adults and older children. Though they might be slightly pricey, investing in them is a great choice.

  • Eight: more the better

If you are the type to hold many parties, or just have a large family, getting a big table is preferable. A lot of people can play at once, making the entire gathering much more entertaining. However, you do need to have a fixed spot to place the table as it tends to take a larger space.

 III. Features

  • Scoreboards

People get so involved playing that they often forget to keep count of the score while playing, leading to quarrels. Tables come with score adjusting boards, every time a player scores a goal, it can be noted.

  • Adjustable leg length

Everyone is enjoying themselves in the family gathering, and now the little kids feel the need to play too, but alas! The table is too high for them to reach! To avoid getting stuck in such a situation, it is recommended to buy tables with legs whose lengths can be adjusted. So, the table isn’t too high or too low for anyone.

  • Foldable

This feature is not commonly available, and not many need it. However, foldable tables are convenient for those who are not very keen on securing a place just for the game. It is also extremely easy to clean.

  • Cup holders

Playing is fun, but having a drink along with it makes it ten times better. Normally tables with cup holders can be bought in pubs and clubhouses. Now you won’t have to worry about spilling your drink over the surface of your foosball table.

  • One goalie

Having only one goalkeeper makes the game extremely interesting and competitive. This way, players can learn to play with quick and swift movements. Such a game also gives a feeling of the actual game of football.

  • Three means you’re free

Such type is generally preferred by less experienced/ players at the beginner level. It is much easier to block the ball with three goalies; hence, this is ideal for families with little children. But can’t be used at a competitive level.

 IV. Material

  • Plastic

This is the most common and easiest material available. They are lightweight and come in a variety of fun colours and designs. However, such tables are prone to damage, and it is not a problem if the players aren’t rough.

  • Wood

Who wouldn’t want their game room to look fancy? Though they’re expensive, picking the one that matches your décor will surely impress your guests. However, it is important to note that wood can easily get spoilt, which is why you should ensure that there are no drinks or eatables near the table.

The Pros and Cons of Buying Instagram Followers

Being an influencer on Instagram isn’t as easy as most people portray it to be. Whether you’re a content creator or a simple business account, the Instagram algorithm makes it just a little hard to build an audience and a significant following.

Buying Instagram followers, in such cases, becomes a tempting option. There are numerous services available online that allow you to buy Instagram followers for an insignificant amount of money, as a quick Google search will undoubtedly reveal. After all, while browsing through new content creators, the vast majority prefers people who already have a large following since followers account for credibility, good content and a significant influencer. So, the question becomes: why shouldn’t one buy Instagram followers?

The answer to that question is easy: engagement. The majority of followers that you buy are usually bots and inactive accounts. Such accounts do not interact with the posts and the stories of an influencer. There are no likes on photos, no comments under posts. This affects the standing of your account on Explore Pages and sometimes even prevents your posts from showing up in the newsfeed of active accounts and your actual audience.

So, even after buying a thousand followers on Instagram, your account does not grow as there are no followers interacting with the content you post. Since engagement is extremely important to Instagram’s algorithm of distributing content, buying followers will only serve as a drain on your account’s actual standing among other competitive accounts.

After all, inactive accounts and bots cannot share your content with other people, prompting others to follow your page too. Your posts will not get the traction that is needed for healthy growth and because of a lack of engagement with a fake audience, your account will be quick to fall to the last step on the ladder. Having inactive accounts and bots in your following can even sometimes affect your actual building audience, since the lack of likes and comments on your content will point towards a fake follower count, deeming your page and position as less than authentic and not self-made.

In fact, Instagram’s recent policy has been to purge its social community of fake accounts and bot accounts. So even if you do end up buying Instagram followers to attract more people to your page, ultimately an Instagram purge will waste both your time and money since it will take away the bot accounts you purchased for  a quick follower count and your following would be back to square one.

What can be done instead, then? To start from scratch on a social platform as big as Instagram, buying followers isn’t the only way to attract attention.

Instead, check this out to learn this here now: building a community through intensive interaction with your few followers by making a public business account and also engaging in good Instagram marketing techniques. Since Instagram’s algorithm relies heavily on the activity of an account, engaging with your followers through comments, regular posts and sharing relatable content can boost your standing on Explore Pages, attracting more people to your Instagram page and the content you create.

By building your account with a unique style and consistency in interaction with your audience, gaining followers becomes significantly easier. Keeping up with Instagram trends and hashtags also helps your posts appear in search results and come up on the Explore Page-where the majority of people look for new creators to follow.

In essence, buying Instagram followers might serve the purpose of attracting an audience for a short amount of time but it does not ensure engagement with content. While it’s perfectly legal and quite cheap, there are countless other ways to engage with an audience and build up your own authentic community on Instagram.

Alternatives to Bankruptcy: New Laws Make it Tougher

You’re broke, you can’t pay your bills, and you can barely put a hot meal on the table. You’re seriously thinking of moving back home with your parents, and your FICO score is so low it doesn’t even register on their charts. Should you file for bankruptcy?

Actually, the answer might surprise you. Bankruptcy laws took a drastic change in October 2005 when the courts decided that bankruptcy was just too darn easy. Individuals would run up bills, spend like crazy, max out credit cards, then hire an attorney for a few hundred dollars to help them file for Chapter 7 and have all their debts discharged.

Those days are over! Individual filings for Chapter 7 have almost become a thing of the past. No longer can you just assume that your creditors or the courts will listen to your sob story and forgive your debts.

Now, courts demand that you not only pay back a good portion of your debts, but you for all intents and purposes lose control over how you spend your future income. A large percentage is allocated to payment schedules. Miss a payment, and you answer to the court.

Before these new laws were enacted, you were supposed to declare all assets -property, furs, jewels, artwork, and even that Rolex you inherited from your grandfather. Anything that the courts could sell to repay your creditors would be taken away. Of course, there was the assumption that all the paperwork you signed had all your assets listed.

Aside from the obvious humiliation and ruined credit history, this was a fairly simply process all around. But – changes were made to this scenario! Your attorney is now held liable for the accuracy of all the assets you list, or don’t. The courts are authorized to pull ad hoc inspections at various residences, much like having a search warrant, but without one. If perhaps that Rolex, or a mink, is found that wasn’t listed on your asset sheet, you and the attorney can be held in contempt.

So, now with all these rules and regulations and heightened levels of liability have been implemented, bankruptcy doesn’t sound like the nirvana like panacea it was before. Now, it can cause more problems that it fixes.

This is not welcome news for those who have filed for bankruptcy since the past few months as things will go from bad to worse in the current scenario as this is considered the last resort in banking terminology and there comes a time when you have no choice but to wait for the opportune moment when you need to seek out the attorneys to help you out but are you Looking For Bankruptcy & Family Law? If so, then you need to look it up online and study in detail about it.

What are your options?

Check out some reputable non profit agencies that specialize in credit counseling. Do not agree to have anyone pay your bills. Just find out if they can negotiate lower amounts for you with each creditor. If they promise to do this, ask for paperwork provided by your creditors clearly outlining your obligations going forward. Keep in mind that consumers undergoing this type of credit counseling are frequently asked to freeze all credit card purchases for the duration of the payment period needed to pay off your agreed to amounts. This could mean years in advance. In other words, if you do need to use credit cards, this may not be a real option for you.

Allow your creditors to sue you. Yes, sue you! This is becoming more common than ever. Of course, creditors have always brought negligent accounts to court to force them to cough up some money. When a debt is satisfied in this manner it is called a “charge back”. During your negotiations either before your court date or during it, you and/or your attorney will agree to a sum you can pay back, and work out a payment plan.

These cases are heard in a local district court, not a federal bankruptcy court. These judges, at least for the time being, are much more sympathetic towards your plight. As far as they are concerned you are only late on one account. The judge will probably ask what you can afford to pay. You can say “$5.00 a week”. These judges are working for your benefit, not the big credit card companies. You have an excellent opportunity to agree to a final payoff – maybe even less than any credit agency could arrive at for you – and explain your side of the story. And you have a say in how and when you can pay them back.

All in all, a charge back is certainly more in line with your future goals than a bankruptcy or even a credit counseling agency. You don’t need to forfeit assets that are sold off at pennies on the dollar. You don’t have your credit cards frozen while you pay off your bills (although you might seriously think about giving up whatever credit cards still work before you get into any more trouble). And you don’t give up complete control over your future income, which is essentially what happens in a bankruptcy.

How to Plumb

Feed pipes from the cold water storage tank in your loft may be either 15 or 22mm pipes. There is also pipe work that connects the main to the cold water storage tank. Pipe work to a hot water storage cylinder will be 22mm pipe as will that going to bath taps. The basins and sinks as well as the shower will use 15mm pipe.

There are many different types of fitting for both 15 and 22 mm pipes. One type of fitting is called a compression fitting. On this type of fitting you need to tighten the nut and as this is turned the ‘olive’ ring is compressed tightly against the pipe creating a watertight seal. This is an ideal way for an inexperienced plumber to do this as it requires no special tools. They can be quite expensive and will require the use of a spanner. A solder ring fitting is another type of fitting that requires a blowtorch to be used. The solder is already built into a groove inside the outlets. They are much cheaper than compression fittings and also less bulky. It will require practice to get these fittings correct and several attempts may be required. A much cheaper and easier to use fitting is something called a push fit. These usually come in both copper and plastic versions. The most important thing when using a push fit is the preparation of the tube and this needs to be cut using a tube cutter. This will make sure that the tube remains round at its ends ready for an ‘O’ ring to be fitted.

For bending pipes you can get 90 degree elbows for going around corners, however, not all bends will be 90 degrees. The fewer connections that you need the better as there is less risk of leaks and the work will also take less time. For pipe bending work you will need a pipe bending spring. This is inserted into the pipe centrally in the place where the bend is desired. You need to bend the pipe over your knee to the angle required using this tool. It is important to note that you cannot make sharp bends and you can only bend the pipe less than 90 degrees. All bends made will be gentle turns otherwise you will note be able to remove the tool from the pipe. If space is limited you must use elbows to allow for sharp turns. However, for complicated issues, it is advisable to call for an emergency plumber in springfield pa. With the right skills, knowledge and equipment, they can certainly help you with any plumbing issues.

Winklevoss Twins Lose Latest Facebook Appeal

The Winklevoss twins have made themselves a notable footnote in history. Although the twins still aren’t credited as the founders of Facebook, the Winklevosses have spent years proving they were right at the center of the drama. Now whenever anyone talks about official founder Mark Zuckerberg, the brothers are usually linked to him and the question of how he really gave birth to the famed social networks like Socialized.me. But for all that they’ve gotten out of the saga, the twins aren’t satisfied yet – even less so after a court ruling over their latest lawsuit.

As anyone who saw the postscript of The Social Network remembers, the brothers finally won a $65 million settlement from Zuckerburg over the founding of Facebook. However, that wasn’t the end of the story, as the Winklevosses went on to claim that their stocks from the settlement were undervalued by Zuckerberg.

The original deal gave the brothers $45 million in shares, yet they claim that Facebook actually valued them to $9 a share, instead of the stated $36. Therefore, they went ahead and sued Zuckerberg once again – and may have once again lost out.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals struck down the appeal over the settlement yesterday, which might be the final salvo in the long legal battle over Facebook. In fact, the judges all but told the Winklevoss twins to get over it in their decision, as they wrote: “At some point, litigations must come to an end.”

Even with the original deal in place, the pair would still get $160 million from it once the shares are finally issued. By those standards, they wouldn’t look like they have lost that much, although their net worth is far from that of Zuckerberg’s. He remains the recognized founder of Facebook, and the youngest billionaire in the world, while the brothers remain supporting players in the founding of the world’s largest website.

There is no word on what they would do next, as their last option may be to go to the Supreme Court. At this point, that is the only thing missing in the saga, which has already spanned from computers to the courtrooms to Hollywood.

After The Social Network made it big, more people are aware of the Winklevoss twins and their case than ever before. Given that they also already have millions, Harvard degrees, past experience in the Olympics, and millions more to come, later on, some might wonder why they need more. However, they have proved that they haven’t just been fighting all these years for money – though their battle is on the ropes now.

5 Reasons Why You And Your College Roommate Should Get Individual Leases

If you are about to move into dorm rooms or an apartment for college and you will be having a roommate then you should definitely not lease as one; ask the apartments/dorm hall coordinators to draw you up separate leases if it’s possible so that you can avoid the disadvantages that would come with signing up for a place with someone else. In this article I will talk about 5 of the reasons why you should make sure that this happens, that you get a separate lease agreement.

– To never be kicked out because your roommate didn’t pay

If you are going to be renting a place with someone else and you don’t get a separate lease then you are risking loosing your place of residence if your roommate fails to pay rent at any time. You will have no control over this happening and you will have to pay his/her rent if you don’t want to be evicted even if that person stays there. Make sure to avoid this by just asking to make arrangements to not have to be responsible for the whole apartment if your roommate doesn’t comply with the payments due.

 

– To feel like the place is part yours and part your roommates and your roommate will have no say in your part.

You should also get a lease so that you can feel a sense of ownership over the place where you’re at. You will be able to say that your apartment is at least half yours for sure and therefore you have the authority to make decisions over what goes on in there. If you’re sharing a lease then you basically have to always take into consideration what your roommate wants to do.

– To have a rental agreement that you signed and can use later on when getting another apartment

If you sign your own lease agreement and your landlord reports this to a credit bureau then you will have something to start of your credit. It will also come in handy when you decide to move; your next landlord will have your first lease agreement to backup your signature on theirs. You will most likely not have to have a cosigner anymore if you do good with your first lease.

The rental agreement may create a friction in your relationship but it is the only way that you both can have your own way as difference of opinion regarding way of living, purchases, etc. are bound to come in and that won’t have fruitful results. The lease in question should not be signed on an immediate basis as the landlord will not take it kindly and can even go the legal way so never go along that path. It is not a big project like the Parc Central Residences floor plan for you to go ahead with the rental agreement but make things sail smoothly with no room for animosity and bitterness.

 

– To not have to talk about how you guys are going to pay the rent

If you are not big into building a steady friendship with your roommate and you basically just want to stay out of each others way without having to talk too much then for sure make sure to get a separate lease for the two of you. If you don’t want to talk about how you’re going to pay the rent this month, who’s going to go, and other things like that then being each on your own would be the best solution.

– To avoid having tension and stress because of money with your roommate

Money is always a problem when people are living together; it doesn’t have to be though if you’re not responsible for the whole apartments rent. If avoiding tension and stress because of money for the rent is important to you then talk to your landlord and if the worst happens (you don’t get separate leases) you should consider getting a one bedroom place or looking for another place to live.
