She s hot in the road

Every bystander that saw you wishes that they could also have a girl like yours and they exclaimed “She’s definitely hot on the road…” and then you smile and said “Wish on brothers…this girl is mine…” Have you ever wondered why most men refer to their bikes as a she or their girl? In order to satisfy my curiosity I asked some of the boys in the neighborhood with bikes why they have to refer to their bikes as their girl. And these are some of their explanations: Boy 1: I call my bike my girl because it’s beautiful and shapely like you girls. – I don’t know about this but if I’m compared to a bike I definitely would not want to be compared with those bulky big bikes. Just think of what that implies. Boy 2: My bike is my girl friend because she’s hot…! – Again, I don’t know what to think of this comparison but it must be because exhaust of motorcycles are hot when you get in contact with it or it may pertain probably to the look of the bike. Well, it’s their opinion in the first place. Boy 3: I refer to my motorcycle my girl because I fell in love with it the first time I laid eyes on it. The same feeling I get when I’m in love. – This is probably the one answer that makes me wonder, comparing the love for a motorcycle to the love for a “real” girl. I mean come on. Boy 4: Motorcycles are like ladies because you have to care for them and not just any care but you simply have to buy them so many accessories just to look good and if that is not girly stuffs then I don’t know. - This one answer is probably the closest thing to the explanation I am searching for funny but definitely TRUE. Boy 5: Motorcycles are not the only things that men refer to as their girl but also cars. There are some names of car parts that signify women. Take for example the skirt. I guess men just love women. - Very true I have never met any straight man who is not a lover of women. After the interview as I go over the answer of the guys I interviewed I came to a conclusion that women are seen in almost everything that men came in contact with. It might be because they deem women as important to them or probably they see women as a part of them that they just can’t leave without or I might be wrong…

Finding the right vessel at boat shows

: Boat shows are the best way to check out the new seasonal offerings before you hit the water this year. As you shop the boat shows in your area, though, what, primarily, should you shop for in a new boat? This guide should help. First, look around the boat shows near you for a good selection of boat styles that fit your needs. Some want the right pontoon boat to carry more party gear.

Others need a speed boat for boat racing that reflects their fast, sleek personalities. Whatever your chosen boat style, though, understanding what you need before you walk into any boat shows is essential. Once you've narrowed things down by style, it's time to start looking at the general size of the vessel. While vessel styles may actually help you determine the size, with boat styles like speed boats, you'll have lots of choices. Keep in mind that you need to choose a boat size that fits both the trailer you currently own and your level of experience. Bigger boats take a lot more maneuvering than smaller ones do, and if your last lake boating experience was a dinghy with oars, you may need to start small or at least invest in some boating courses to get the job done right. Accessories Now that you've looked at styles and size, your next step is to start choosing the preferences that best fit your needs. Most people look at engine capacity first.

The larger the engine, the faster your boat is going to go, and boat shows are a great way to look at the engine technology that is currently available. Talk with dealers about what is new in the world of boat engines, look at demonstrations, and if you're interested, talk about alternative fuel technologies. After all, gas is getting expensive for every engine, including those you'll be seeing at the boat shows you attend. In addition to engine size, you need to consider other boating accessories. While you can do lots of accessorizing after the fact, choosing a model at the boat shows you visit that comes close to meeting your needs may help things out quite a bit. Look at the lights, seat covers, and furniture included to be sure that you're getting the right boat. If you're shopping for higher end accessories or boating apparel or you have special boating needs (fishing and so forth) be sure to ask boat show dealers what could be added to their current model to make your boating experience a bit smoother. Not sure where to find boat shows in your area? Go online. With thousands of boat shows from coast to coast, you're sure to find one within driving distance.

It's unquestionably the way to get a look at all of the hottest models of the season and help narrow down your boat purchase choices. Moreover, though, you can check out some of the awesome boating products boat makers have created for the market this year. It may just give you the fix you need to make it to the next season.

The seven deadly sins of business people 3 gluttony

If you read this introduction already, just scroll down and start reading about Gluttony, otherwise it is recommended that you read the introduction bellow. Let’s analyze how these common vices can affect your business and your overall income. You may think that the concept of deadly sins is a religious one and do not apply to you, but you may call them negative tendencies if you want. The fact is that you can find them in more or less intensity within most people. You may not realize that one of these tendencies may be affecting you until I show you the details. If you realize that there is a problem, I will also give you the solution so you can fix it. I will explain and compare now the most common negative tendencies among people with their corresponding opposite virtues.

Before we start, I need to tell you something . . . I. Most sins arise from: FEAR. II. Most virtues arise from: LOVE. III. Sins, vices and negative tendencies demonstrate weakness, while virtues demonstrate strength. In my opinion the biggest virtue of all is COURAGE/CONFIDENCE, because it is the direct fruit of love, which dissipates fear and sow all other virtues in human’s hearts. This is a series of articles about this subject. The whole series contain the following articles . . . 1. Pride 2. Envy 3. Gluttony 4. Lust 5. Anger 6. Greed 7. Sloth – Gluttony – This negative tendency is related to the desire to consume more than what we need. It doesn’t have to do with food only, but also with many other aspects and areas of life. When you mention the word gluttony, people often think about eating a lot. This doesn’t necessary has to be the case. If someone wants too much of anything, if someone wishes excess, that’s gluttony. This sin is destructive because excess is always destructive. Almost always when people seek excess in an area of life, they will neglect other important aspects that are also important and necessary. I will give you a few examples. Let’s say that some people wish to be really, really wealthy. They love money, businesses and finances. Their dream is to be billionaires. All they do is to think about how to get more money. They have no friends or don’t care about them. These people do not relax. They do not have fun. Making money is their definition of having fun. They do not do any exercise. They barely eat or sleep. Business/making money is their obsession. It is their everything. That’s gluttony. Now, let me make myself clear. Sometimes, people need to concentrate for a few years on an area, so they can accomplish a goal or objective. A start up may require their owners to focus on it and forget about everything else for a few years. Sometimes you have to concentrate on what you are doing for a while until it starts producing results. The example above refers to people that want excess. They want more than they need. Not only that, they do only one thing, neglecting other important areas of life. The point is that life, like nature, is not only about one thing, but many. Some of these obsessed people do get what they want. The problem is that when you have more than you can consume, the excess is often good only to share it or give it away. That’s what many extremely wealthy people end up doing, sharing their wealth like Rockefeller did. You may ask how is gluttony distinguishable from greed? The glutton may share some of their money from time to time. They are not concerned with running out of cash. That’s why many gluttons actually become very rich. The point is that they want more than they need. Greedy people do not like to share anything. They want to get their “fair share” or a bit more. The greedy individuals do not really get obsessed with getting a whole bunch of something, but with not losing what they already have. Many greedy individuals are also gluttons though. That’s why you see that they want more and more and they suffer if they have to share a cent. Let’s get back to gluttony. This sin doesn’t only apply to money nor food but to everything else. Some people simply work too much and they don’t do it out of necessity, but choice. Work is their drug and they dissipate many of their other problems working. They have three jobs and they are thinking about a fourth one. Again their house is paid off like their cars, their businesses are ok, everything is ok. They seem to have no financial problem. They don’t fear to lose anything. They just want more. “The sky is the limit.” These people are workaholic. They do nothing else but work. The same happens with study, work and any other area of life. When your life spins around one area only or a few ones, but nothing else, you may be getting into gluttony ground. If all you do is to think about money, work on your businesses, read about investments, try to acquire more wealth, etc, etc; you are off balance. If you spend all your waking life only thinking about money, you are off balance. Some people simply like businesses for the sake of it. I like businesses for three different reasons. Number one I like to add value to other people’s lives. Number two business is a hobby for me. Number three I like to make money. I like money and wealth. For me money is a tool, not the goal. I compare money, business and life with a car, traveling and gasoline. Life is traveling, business is the car, money is the gasoline. Money is the tool that help me use another tool (business) that help me achieve the goal. The goal is to enjoy life. I can’t achieve the goal if I am obsessed with the tools. Some people need tools: money, wealth, etc. They are very poor, so they start up confused. They get obsessed. They get many, many tools, but they don’t achieve the goal, and at the end they realize that they have far more tools than they need so they give them away. To be obsessed is not the same as to be passionate. It is as the saying goes: “Greatness requires sacrifice.” You must focus on the goal though. If you want money, what do you want it for? Your answer to that question is your goal. Now, remember that what truly matters is not the goal either, but the purpose. You can learn more about this on my other series titled: “The 7 secret keys to wealth.” Many people after reaching their goal, still feel empty. That’s why they constantly set new goals. They do not realize that there is a common component behind most of the goals they set. To understand this better read my other series mentioned above. Gluttony is the sin that opposes moderation or temperance. In other words balance. The problem with these sins or negative tendencies is that people who practice them often can’t see it nor perceive it, so they think they are ok. Once they receive the result of their attitudes, they get mad and frustrated, because they can’t understand the reason, they can’t see it! A good way to help people see, is to describe each of these tendencies little by little, so they can understand where they are missing the point. Some of these tendencies are very subtle. For example, in the case of gluttony, some people may want to have multiple streams of income, which is good, but many people fail on this project for the following reason . . . They want to have too many streams of income and they don’t give the necessary time nor effort required to make any source of income really profitable. They jump from one idea to the next for months or years without settling down on anything specifically. They do not maintain a balance between starting a business and keeping it. They start one and another and another, but most of their time and effort is focused on starting businesses not keeping them profitable. Some people have just one business, but they are unsuccessful because they focus too much time and effort in one area of the business only, neglecting other important areas. They may spend most of the available resources on the product development section, neglecting some other areas like advertisement and customer support. You may have only one business. Your life may be pretty much balanced, but you may still find some troubles because of this. On this example you may fall victim of gluttony and not notice it. If you are dedicating excessive time and efforts to an area and leaving other important aspects to run crazy, the disorder may increase fast within the business. It is as this analogy goes: Most people’s lives are made of twenty rooms. Most people spend most of their time in one or a few rooms. They keep that room clean and pretty. In fact sometimes it shines more than necessary, but don’t visit the other rooms, because you won’t like what you will see. That’s the main idea behind gluttony. Keep most rooms relatively clean. Do not try to make one room perfect while leaving all others getting dust. The problem with the glutton is that he/she often feels something is really wrong. They may think that there is only one thing they want in life, but life is not about one thing only, it is about many things. So, when they get what they want (excess) it will not satisfy them, because they will still be striving to succeed in many other aspects of life that they lack so much. Even if they could get excess in every area of life, it would still be sad and frustrating, because excess is never good and always destructive. The secret is to keep a balance in everything you do. Moderation is the virtue that gluttony opposes. If you maintain a moderate attitude in everything you do, you will keep this negative tendency away. When you start to get excessive and obsessive, you start to move into gluttony ground. When you realize that you want more than you need, it is good to understand that you won’t need that much. Sometimes it is hard to control this tendency, but not impossible. Some people know they are gluttons, but they can’t quit it. They know that they want too much, that they want more than they will be able to consume and they maintain that attitude. The problem with this sin is that it is subtle. It turns something good into something bad easily. For example, adding value to other people’s lives is good. You can do this through your job, business, work, creativity, services, innovation, productivity, etc. On the other hand, if you add too much value to others and neglect your own life, you may get sick or too tired. This may prevent you from adding all the value you could have added in the long run, if you would have kept it balanced since the beginning. Generosity is a good thing. If you are too generous and you give away everything you may end up without anything. You may say: “Am I not supposed to reap what I sow? Why is it that I have nothing? Why if I help everybody it seems that nobody is interested in helping me?” Yes “you reap what you sow” and “what is around comes around.” You may have many blessings that greedy people do not have. Many individuals may come to you and help you, but you don’t realize that you keep giving everything away to others. In my opinion, it is an irresponsible act to give away to others what you need to cover your own necessities. Some people think that by being too generous they will be blessed and they will become rich. Excessive generosity can act against you the same way that greed does. Evil people will come to you and will try to take advantage of you, if you don’t stop them, they will ruin you. Would you give the things you and your family need to friends and strangers? If your friend needs some chairs and you can not afford to purchase more chairs would you give your friend your chairs even if you have to sit on the floor for weeks? If you want to turn something good into something bad all you need is an excess of it. Take your favorite song and listen to it 7,000 times continually and repetitively without stopping. It will make you mad. You will hate it forever. Repetition is torture. Excess is destructive. LESS IS MORE! That’s the opposite of “the sky is the limit” and “more is better.” We live in an era of consumerism. Our society is guilty of this sin. More is produced than what is needed and a lot ends up in the waste facility growing dust and pollution. Our society believes that lack of something is bad, but excess is good. What’s the point in that. Excess is only good to share what you don’t need with others who have nothing. We need abundance, but not excess. You can be prosperous and wealthy without having excessive wealth. Remember that money is only a tool, not the end on itself. I like money and riches. I don’t preach against it. Do not get me wrong here. The desire to have too much though can make you poor forever. Why? Because you will never feel that you have enough to fit your definition of too much. You may often move the line up a few levels. When was the last time that you reached the horizon? You can’t do it, because once you get there, you discover that there is a new horizon. The wish for excess is like mirages in your sight. You will never feel that you have enough. You may not realize that reaching the goal is not what truly matters, but achieving the purpose. Goal and purpose are not the same thing. For example eating can be pleasurable, but the real purpose is to keep you alive. The food may be tasty. It can make you happy, but if you eat too much you can get sick. Work is a blessing, but if you work too much, you may hate it. Business is good and making money is great, just keep the excess under control. Moderation is the keyword. I will have to finish this article now, otherwise I will type excessively. I typed too much already. If you read the other articles on this series, you will realize that the common characteristic behind this negative tendencies is: selfishness. If you are absolved with yourself, you will show one or more of these tendencies on your daily actions. The solution is to live a less selfish lifestyle. By changing your attitude, you may change the outcome of your actions. You may be amazed at the results and you will feel happier and successful. EasyWebRiches © 2006

Dating tool confidence 101

I’m over it. “There’s plenty of fish in the sea,” they say. Well, apparently I have been using the wrong bait. Nobody said dating would be easy, but Hollywood sure likes to paint it that way, doesn’t it? “There’s someone for everyone,” they say. Maybe that ought to translate to, “There’s someone for everyone….as long as you’re a muscled pretty boy with washboard abs, and at least 6 feet tall.” So how does one get by this unsettling dating stipulation? Are we actually to believe that love will find us when we’re not looking? I think people who say that are normally in happy relationships when they say it. Can we “buy” outer beauty from an online store to match our own inner beauty? Somebody is buying pheromones and weight-loss pills and liposuction and facial restructuring. Hell, now people even get plastic surgery to make them look like a celebrity. Huh??? And you know what? I bet these things work for people. As long as it can build the confidence up in someone, it also strengthens the attraction. So how can we build up that confidence without spending tons of money to people who know how the game works? Sounds like a question for the shrink. I suppose its all part of why I started up a matchmaking service with a friend of mine in Los Angeles. It can be so frustrating out there. And being “alone” can only make your work day more stressful, it seems. So if I had someone to do the dirty work for me….get me the dating connections, counsel me on why I might not be getting that second date, maybe my frustration level would decrease. So I went into the business….pretty much as a means to find out what can be done to find the perfect one. OK, so nobody’s perfect, but at least maybe I can find a decent one who happens to have similar ethics as myself. Oh, and a killer sense of humour is mandatory. But looking around, nobody was going to help me, a fact that made me feel even more alone! So I had to do it myself. Such is life, right? Part of it might be that I feel a need to always be in control of my own destiny. As long as I am actively pursuing something, I am a success. Yea, that sounds right! So I joined forced with my cohort and we started Let’s Meet Here. Now I’m gonna’ find the one, right? Wrong! As it seems unethical to date my own clients (damn, I knew I’d run into some roadblock!), I figured….at least pass on any information I can gather to those who need it (and baby, we all need it!). Granted, I am learning about all this stuff now. It seems every date and every relationship is completely unique. There is no list of do’s and don’ts that applies. But I do know that going into the business has allowed me an increase in confidence that is apparent in me without my even having to think about it. I am starting to really believe that success comes from the active pursuit of a goal, whether or not the goal is achieved. The process in itself builds character…and character is attractive. So while I learn as I go, I will show as I go too. It is absolutely within my own power to be a success. And the pursuit of achievements is an achievement of its own. However, I have also learned that a little is never enough. And to settle after one’s success is no success at all. Maybe now I’m fishing with the right bait!

Warning this lease might explode any minute

Mike Caringi, owner of a small New Jersey business that sells pumps, found himself facing a gut-wrenching dilemma last summer. Should he continue paying $ 1,500 each month for essential telecommunications services he no longer receives and for leased equipment he claims was never installed? Or, should he stop making payments and face a potential lawsuit from the firm that financed the equipment under a ‘hell or high water’ lease? Mr. Caringi’s company is one of several thousand small companies around the country reeling from the bankruptcy of Norvergence, a reseller of telecommunications and Internet services. At the core of the quagmire facing Mr. Caringi and others is that Norvergence succeeded in getting customers to sign separate lease and service contracts that provided its services. When Norvergence abruptly shut its doors, it left thousands of its customers scrambling to replace telephone and Internet services while obligated to shell out over $ 200 million in lease payments to Wells Fargo Financial, CIT and 30 other leasing companies over the next five years. How can you protect your company from being victimized in a similar situation? Certainly, most transactions involving equipment leased in connection with a related service carry some degree of risk. You can reduce that risk by taking certain precautions. First, where possible, avoid leasing equipment when the equipment is proprietary to a service.

The chances are that you will be stuck with the equipment if the service provider fails. Make sure that the leased equipment has an underlying value that justifies the lease. By doing a present value calculation of all payments owed under the lease agreement and comparing that value to the fair market value of the equipment, you can see whether the lease value is reasonable. Check to see whether the equipment is used by other similar service providers, in case a switch in service becomes necessary. Finally, make sure the equipment you will be leasing can be sold in the after-market. As a last resort, you may be able to cut your losses by having the ability to buy-out the equipment from the lessor to be resold to someone else. Perhaps, one of the best protections in signing up for a service requiring leased equipment is to thoroughly evaluate the service provider before proceeding. Make sure the service provider is financially sound and has a long track record of providing excellent service. If possible, ask for and review financial information on the service provider.

Do an Internet news search to make sure there are no troubling stories about the service provider. Be partial to services that offer equipment under contracts that tie service and use of the equipment together, such that your obligation to pay is conditioned on the service being provided. Lastly, since these transactions always carry some risk, make sure that an abrupt interruption in the service will not have a material negative impact on your company or cause a financial hardship.

Collaboration software building an office without walls

The rise of the internet has given businesses a new way to think and function on both the individual level and as a whole. Today if you are in a business that doesn’t have or use the internet, then you are giving up valuable advertising and productivity. Whether or not your company uses the internet we are all aware, to some degree, the effect the internet has on advertising and promoting businesses on a global scale. However, we may not fully understand what else the internet can do. We may not realize that using the internet to our advantage can also include increased productivity by building a virtual office; one without walls. Okay, so how do we build an office without walls then? In this article I will be discussing how to basically build this kind of office and how it can help you be more productive and organized. What is an office without walls? Now if you are sitting there picturing yourself sitting on the grass outside holding hands with your fellow employees that isn’t what I meant by building an office without walls. Of course you still have physical walls but with use of the internet and collaboration software you can create an environment in which the information you share and collaborate on can be exchanged employee to employee so easily that it will seem as though there are no “walls” to prevent you from being as effective as you can be. So what is collaboration software? Collaboration software is software that is used to collect the ideas and documents from multiple people into one document without having the group formally meet together to discuss their ideas. It can be done individually without leaving the office. Collaboration software allows you to exchange your calendars, spreadsheets, presentations, and other documents with everyone in your, group, company, or whomever. How does collaboration software work? There are essentially two types of collaboration software. Most collaboration software is centralized, which requires an IT infrastructure to make it usable. Setting up an IT infrastructure can be very expensive and time consuming. Collaboration software that is centralized can be very beneficial for team collaboration but it sometimes requires that all who wish to share the collaboration documents have the same software set up on their computer. Some of the collaboration that requires the use of an IT infrastructure includes the following: Groove Network Microsoft Sharepoint Documentum Filenet There is another type of collaboration software which does not require the use of an IT infrastructure and requires very little installation time. NextPage is one example of collaboration software that doesn’t require an expensive IT infrastructure. Another advantage that NextPage has is that you can share documents with anyone; they don’t have to have the NextPage software on their machine to view the documents that you send them. This can be useful if you are preparing a document for a client where you need the input and editions from your fellow co-workers but then want to send the finished product to your client who isn’t using the same software. He/she can still open up the document when they receive it and you can easily track editions to the document using NextPage’s collaboration software. As you can see, using collaboration software can be very beneficial to keeping documents you share in your office and with clients organized and up-to-date. With the implementation of collaboration software, you can create an office without walls and without bounds with regards to productivity and organization. All that remains is for you to go get it, and get it implemented!

Organizations everywhere are starting to see the benefits of staging certain types of fundraisers. As you may have discovered through trial-and-error, some fundraisers are simply more successful than others. We all want to raise as much money as we can for our respective organizations, but there are times when we ought to give pause to other considerations. Coffee fundraisers have been massively successful in the United States and beyond. It should come as no surprise, mind you. Everyone loves coffee, especially really good coffee. It is estimated that over 200 million people in the United States alone drink coffee on a daily basis.

At approximately one dollar per cup, you can imagine how staggering the profits can be. Organizations have an excellent opportunity to tap into this market, and to brew up massive revenues for their respective ventures. The difficult part of doing coffee fundraisers, is convincing people to compromise their morning coffee routines. It may sound absurd, but many people feel very passionately about the coffee they drink. From what I have been told by some of our readers, Canadians are absolutely fanatic about Tim Horton's coffee. The challenge for people involved in fundraising, is to convince people to try something new. We have to appeal to their thoughtful side. It is for charity, after all. One of our friends has had tremendous success by putting a new twist on the traditional coffee fundraiser. Instead of offering people unimpressive gift boxes of coffee, why not consider selling bags of Fair Trade Coffee? If you are not aware of the Fair Trade movement, you should be. It is essentially an effort to ensure that farmers in developing countries are properly compensated for their labor and their products. The movement also tries to address issues regarding the environmental impact of certain farming practices, as well as local economic sustainability. There is a significant percentage of the population in America that truly cares about what is happening in the world today. The environmental movement has been going strong for decades now, and people have become both active and aware of the issues that affect citizens in America and beyond. These conditions create a wonderful opportunity for fundraisers, as we can give people an opportunity to support two wonderful causes; the Fair Trade movement and your organization! Let your conscience guide you in your fundraising efforts, and help make trade fair.

Golf fitness exercises to help your short game

The connection between golf fitness exercises and the short game often times goes unnoticed. It is usually thought golf fitness exercises help us generate more clubhead speed, add more distance to our drives, hit longer iron shots, and play more consistently from the fairway. In this mix of benefits the short game is often lost when discussing golf fitness. Believe it or not golf fitness exercises can benefit your short game in a big way. The idea of golf fitness exercises and their benefit to short game play came into focus during a conversation with PGA Teaching professional Christopher Smith. Christopher is a great instructor; he works with Nike Golf, is rated as a top instructor in the Pacific Northwest, and was recently featured in Golf Digest Magazine. Not to long ago Christopher and I filmed a couple of golf instruction videos together. One of the videos was on the short game. The video we filmed was not your “typical” short game video. Where we instructed you to place your feet here, clubface in this position, hands forward of the ball, etc, etc. It was a much better approach in the video and discussed concepts of the short game. Christopher presented ways to think about short game shots, and processes to improve your short game. One area he touched upon was how finite of an athletic action chipping and pitching are in the big picture. For example, the muscular strength in the hands, forearms, and wrists are integral parts of the short game. In addition so are the motor skills of the nerves and muscles coordinating the movements involved in such golf shots. Christopher’s question to me in the video was in relation to these exact topics. He flat out asked me: “Sean, are there golf fitness exercises that can help in the short game? I find as an instructor, physical limitations are showing up in some of my student’s short game. This is limiting their ability to perform chips, pitches, and most shots from 100 yards in. What are your thoughts?” I told Christopher there are absolutely golf fitness exercises that can benefit any golfer’s short game. I first discussed the hands, wrists, and forearms. To perform chip shots and pitches the hands, wrists, and forearms come into play. In order to execute such shots consistently and correctly a level of strength is needed within these muscles. If the muscles within these parts of the body are weak and lack endurance, the ability to set the hands where they need to be, and hold the clubface in the correct position can be compromised. I said the easiest way to correct this problem on a physical level is to implement a series of golf fitness exercises for the hands, wrists, and forearms. These exercises will increase the muscular strength and endurance in these body parts. The end result will be an improvement in their short game on a physical level. The second problem area indicated by Christopher with his student’s short game centered upon the finite motor skills of these shots. These types of shots require a very high level of motor control. Motor control is centered upon the interaction of the brain, nerves, and muscles. It is essentially your brain telling your body what to do, how to do it, and in what order. This is a result of your brain coordinating movements of your muscles through the nervous system. The execution of your brain “telling your body what to do” can be either efficient or inefficient. If your brain, nervous system, and muscles are operating efficiently, the execution of finite motor control movements such as short game shots are easy. On the other hand, if your brain telling your nerves, and consequently your muscles what to do is inefficient. The execution of finite motor control movements, again such as short game shots will be more difficult. I told Christopher motor control is the second area in which golf fitness exercises can be of benefit to the short game. The types of golf fitness exercise beneficial to the short game are balance exercises. Balance exercises are a type of golf fitness exercises. These types of golf fitness exercises incorporate your brain, nerves, and muscles. They have many benefits when it comes to the golf swing. Outside the benefit of creating higher levels of muscular strength and endurance, these exercises assist in motor control. Let me explain, we understand motor control is the interaction of your brain, nerves, and muscles. The interaction can either be efficient or inefficient. Efficient motor control is good, especially for finite muscular activities such as short game shots. Golf fitness balance exercises “challenge” your nervous and muscular system interaction. Over time as these two systems are “challenged” through exercise they become more efficient. Essentially they operate together more efficiently. Resulting in higher levels of motor control and the ability to execute finite motor skills (i. e. short game golf shots). So lets summarize this discussion between Christopher Smith and myself. Golf fitness exercises are often overlooked as a benefit to short game shots. The reality is different than many individuals think. Golf fitness exercises can assist the golfer’s short game on a physical level. It does this in two ways; golf fitness exercises increase the strength in the muscles involved in short game shots. Secondly, the short game is a finite motor control activity. Golf fitness balance exercises can improve a golfer’s motor control abilities, allowing them to execute finite activities such as short game shots with greater ease. Bottom line, golf fitness exercises can benefit every aspect of the golf swing and the amateur’s golf game. Sean Cochran

Deathstalker venom from poison to cure

For centuries, the desert-dwelling arachnids known as scorpions have been seen as creatures of dark repute. Their form is alien-looking to most humans, giving an air of otherworldliness. The secretive nature of the species has kept most humans from observing them thoroughly. Even if there were those who knew where to look, the venom in the scorpion's stingers often sent fools scampering for pain relief within seconds of being stung. There are also the unlucky who suffer from agonizing pain and slow torment until the venom takes its course and leaves them dead. However, there are more aspects to the scorpion and its venom than pain and the need for pain relief and anti-venom.

Scorpions, like most venomous creatures, are the source of the cures to the very ills they cause. The best pain relief and antidote to scorpion venom is not some random medication, but anti-venom derived directly from the scorpion's own lethal mix. One particular scorpion's venom, however, is being studied very closely by some medical research groups. The Deathstalker, also known as the Israeli Desert Scorpion, is easily the most venomous scorpion in the world. The venom is a potent neurotoxin that causes intense pain, usually due to muscle spasms, and slow failure of the entire nervous system. The venom is surprisingly only rarely lethal in humans, unless a person is stung and gets extreme amounts of the poison.

However, researchers have also found that the venom might have some use in medicine, quite ironically, to save lives. The first possibility stems from the discovery that Deathstalker venom was found to be effective pain relief for cancer patients. It is unknown what specific component of the venom is interacting with the cancerous cells, but testing has shown that patients have shown that the pain is not as intense if the venom was applied. However, researchers are still attempting to eliminate all of the other possible factors, especially since the venom usually causes pain in patients without cancerous cells. A related field of research to the one above is being conducted in the effects of the venom on people with brain tumors. There is a compound in the Deathstalker's potent venom, the peptide chlorotoxin, that has shown potential in being used as a treatment for brain tumors in humans.

The toxin compounds combine with the damaged cells and the components that cause the tumors, weakening them such that simple exposure to radiation can remove what's left. The idea is still being put through extensive testing, but if the tests prove to be successful and the synthetic (and non-lethal) version of the venom proves to be just as effective as the real thing, it might see frequent use. The procedure for using it, according to estimates, would really be as simple as injecting a solution of the compounds into the patient's head. Finally, researchers have found that Deathstalker venom, or certain components within it that may or may not be possible to synthesize, can help control insulin levels. There is still much research being done to determine just what in the venom has this effect, as well as all the possible effects it could have on a person's insulin levels. Still, there is quite a bit of optimism tied to the project, mostly because there is the possibility of using a synthetic form of the venom to treat diabetes.

Sexual health awareness and you

Modern society has adapted a very permissive view of sex that today's youth are more independent, expressive and liberated when it comes to sexual expression. In this high-tech culture where conventions do not necessarily become the rule, it is important to consider what lies ahead for you and for your loved ones, and how you can protect each other from getting sexually transmitted diseases. Sexual health is not just the absence of the disease or its dysfunction and infirmities. It is a state of physical, emotional, psychological and social well-being with regards to one's sexuality. Addressing sexual health issues involves a complex web of factors such as attitude, behavior, genes, environment, and economy. It also deals with sexual health problems such as STD, HIV, pregnancy, abortion, infertility, cancer, and a wide range of sexual dysfunctions. Those who are in a relationship must not consider an infected partner as being unfaithful. One must learn to practice a positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships and this can be achieved if the sexual rights of every individual is respected and protected. As the clichй goes, “looks can be deceiving.” It's not easy to tell if the person beside you has STD, or other illnesses for that matter, just by the way that person looks and acts.

There are STDs that are not accompanied by any obvious signs. Symptoms can be very subtle that the person infected may not even know it. Aside from your regular health check-up, it is very important that you should also take special attention in knowing your own body especially when you are healthy. So that if any changes take place such as skin infections or sores, as well as any unusual discharge or pain while urinating, it will be easier for you to recognize these signs and symptoms because you already know how your body is like when healthy. Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) are diseases caused by viruses, bacteria and parasites and can easily be transmitted through body contact during sex. There are at least 25 different sexually transmitted diseases which can be spread by sexual contact, including vaginal, anal, and oral sex. Sometimes, STDs take a long time to display any kind of symptoms. The following are some of the most common STDs that affect sexually active individuals: Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Bacterial Vaginosis, Crabs or Pubic Lice, Epididymitis, Genital Herpes, Genital Warts, Gut Infections, Hepatitis, Molluscum, Non-Specific Urethritis, Scabies, Syphilis, Thrush, Trichomonas Vaginosis, Balanitis. Sexual health awareness is very important in detecting and treating STD to avoid serious infections which can lead to long-term or permanent damage. Untreated STD may cause infertility and can be passed on from a pregnant mother to her unborn child. STD can be passed onto sexual partners easily and can aid in the transmission of HIV. Abstinence is the surest thing to avoid STD. But you don't have to be a killjoy just to be free of the dreaded STD. The practice of safe sex and sexual health awareness can greatly help in minimizing risk from STD. Always use condoms during sexual intercourse or dental dams for oral sex. Make sure to sanitize sex toys before and after use. Observe genital hygiene routines, as well as keep your hands clean at all times. Consult with your professional health care provider for sexual health advice on getting tested for STD.

Learn how to quit smoking

What do I mean by LEARN, shouldn’t I be telling you to go buy some nicotine gum or some quit smoking NRT products. Hey! It’s not that hard for anyone to stop smoking and NO you don’t really need a pill, potion, patch or gum. As a matter of fact I believe you only need one thing to help you quit smoking and that’s Knowledge, because knowledge is power. Some historians claim that tobacco has been apart of our history since around 6000BC, however a little closer to our end of the time line in the pre - Columbian Americas the native Americans cultivated tobacco for ceremonial pipe smoking. Explorers like Christopher Columbus, Sir Walter Raleigh and France’s Jean Nicot after whom nicotine was named began to popularize the use of tobacco as the new fashion throughout Europe. The process of smoking was learnt back in the early 16th century and it’s still learnt the same way today. In the US every day 3000 new non-smoker kids become smokers! Each and every person has had to learn how to smoke.

You LEARNT how to become a smoker in the first place. You practised the draw-back and various smoking techniques over and over, including all those body image traits until you finally achieved that great `smoker status' .

You may be asking yourself right now, how can I learn how to stop smoking. The answer is easy, if you want to become a non-smoker, then you need to learn how to THINK as non-smoker. The reality is that gums, patches or NRT’s won’t change your smoker mindsets, knowledge and understanding is the key! Listen ...'If you think the way you always thought, you'll have what you always had.' Answer this... Who talks to you the most? Your partner? your boss? your neighbour? your friends? your dog or cat?

Aromatherapy the fact the fiction

You've seen those mysterious little brown bottles in the health food store. But do you really know what "essential oils" are? Have you seen outrageous claims about lavender instantly curing wounds and found yourself thinking "Whoa!"? Let's take a look at one of the biggest fads to hit North America in years and try to separate some of the fact from the fiction. AROMATHERAPY--WHAT IS IT? Though the use of aromatic plant materials dates back millennia, aromatherapy is a relatively new idea. In fact, the term "aromatherapy" wasn't even coined until the 1920s. Though you'll find people who claim aromatherapy can cure everything from AIDS to dandruff let's first look at aromatherapy in its purest form--the use of fragrant plant materials to alter mood, create an atmosphere, and personalize a room. Ask an aromatherapy aficionado and he'll tell you that "true" aromatherapy uses only pure, natural plant materials. But the truth is, mood can be influenced by any scent--natural or not. Ask any realtor about the use of scents and he might just suggest baking a batch of cinnamon rolls or an apple pie while showing your home to prospective buyers. An old wives tale? Some people think so but others swear by it. IF IT QUACKS LIKE A DUCK . . . Let's face it--there are folks out there hawking aromatherapy as a cure for cancer, a treatment for depression, and even as an aphrodisiac. But good scientific studies on aromatherapy are rare. Even among natural health experts aromatherapy isn't taken all that seriously. At best it's a complimentary therapy. And while we're on the subject of quackery, let's also clarify another common misconception. There is currently no standardized certification aromatherapy program in the US. When you hire an aroma expert you've no way to be sure the person knows what he or she is doing. OK. IT'S NOT A MIRACLE CURE. SO . . . WHAT'S IT GOOD FOR? Aromatherapy may not cure terminal illness or heal burns in the blink of an eye but it's a wonderful way to bring natural scents into your home. Essential oils don't have the sickeningly sweet scent of artificial air fresheners or the solvent scent of room sprays. Whether you use them to freshen potpourri, diffuse them into the air, or use them to scent your linens, essential oils are a quick, easy way to inject a bit of your own personality into your private space. Let's look at some of the most popular uses of some of the more common oils: The medicinal scent of Eucalyptus or Tea Tree will make your bathroom or kitchen feel cleaner, instantly. Rose in the bathroom, however, harkens back to Victorian times, when rose was the scent of choice in perfumes, face creams, and soaps. Lavender is the classic "linen closet" scent. Try lightly spraying your sheets and pillowcases about half an hour before you retire in the evening. Citrus oils like Orange or Lemon make a room feel happy and alive while warm, woody oils like Patchouli or Sandalwood impart a mysterious, moody feeling. In your bedroom, the deep, exotic scent of Ylang-Ylang urgently whispers "This is a romantic space".

Hoodia prime is helping me battle my weight loss

It took quite a few too many years and a dozen or so different health supplements and diets, but I can honestly say that I finally pinpointed the ONE to make it work - to lose all of that unwanted weight and feel like myself again. I finally feel like I can handle myself when I step into a buffet or when a friend of mine asks me over for dinner and they ask me if I want seconds. It is a glorious feeling to just say NO and it is all thanks to Hoodia Prime. I had not heard of Hoodia Prime Gordonii prior to this year. I did not know that there was a new weight loss product that pretty much made you stop feeling hungry. If I had, I sure as heck would have tried it prior to when I did. I have tried other Hoodia products that made me run around like my butt was on fire or something, and then an hour or two later I was eating everything I could get my hands on. It just did not feel good or right.

Hoodia Prime, which has been everything its makers declared it would be, is the complete opposite of that. I am just not hungry. THAT IS IT! In fact, it took just a few days using Hoodia Prime and I was already losing weight, and doing it 100% safely. I took the Hoodia Prime and not too long after, I felt myself full and satiated. The feeling never entirely went away. This is how it has been for about the past two weeks. I have decided, since Hoodia Prime made such a great difference in my life, that I would reveal to as many people about it as I possibly can. You should really check out my blog on how Hoodia Prime worked for me, and made me feel from day to day right here: http://hoodiamom. wordpress. com/ I think you might be amazed! It is really GREAT stuff.

Why every home needs a backup generator

We all take the little things for granted like the use of power running the refrigerator, microwave, TV, and other appliances or electronics in our homes. Why? Because power is usually on without even the slightest problem most of the time. But what about those times when there are power outages? That is when we realize that electrical power is a great necessity to our every living from providing heat and light to cooking our meals. For those who have realized this importance and have bought a standby power generator from their homes, the idea of prolonged blackouts is not as scary.

Why does every home need a power generator? Well lets take a look at the ice storm of 1998 that plagued the North Eastern part of the United States and Canada. Many casualties from hypothermia to other causes effected the people of the region as prolonged blackouts kept homes without electricity. Those that had power generators were lucky as they were still with power and could perform everyday functions like laundry, heat baths, and other everyday activities you could not imagine going without. Those without power generators had to tough out the storm and blackouts or find someone who would lend them a generator. Just from this case alone, shows the need for power generators in every home. Many other incidents besides ice storms, like the 2003 power outage in the northeastern United States that caused several power plants to shut down, can render an area without power for up to a week. Other natural disasters such as tornados, hurricanes, floods, and mudslides can cause the same crippling damage to power lines and effect homes all over a region. Many businesses have power generators to protect their assets.

The same case can be presented for homes. Is it not a safe bet to buy a power generator to protect the people in your house from the what ifs.

How to choose the best dehumidifier

The dehumidifier is considered as an air conditioner that has coils to remove the moisture from the air. Its coils come with hot and cold and a fan that would let the air conditioner to condense the moisture created by the cold coils of the dehumidifier. It will then produce a dry air that will go through the hot coil to bring back its original temperature. The dehumidifier is not anymore needed if there is an air conditioner available in the room. The air conditioner may do the process of dehumidifying the moisture in the room. Most households experience some problems when there is too much and too little moisture in the air. This is the reason why many encounter problems of dry skin and itchy skin. The discomfort of having an air that is too dry may also lead to the cracking of furniture surfaces. The blocking of nasal passages would also be experienced because of the dry air produced by the moisture. An air that is slightly wet can also cause the same problems on the skin and to the nasal passages. The continuous condensation of the moisture in windows, the expansion of molds, and the cause of rotten wood products is the effect of the dry air that is not removed. That is why it is important to have a dehumidifier in the house. To have an idea on what kind of dehumidifier to choose, here are some dehumidifier purchase costs: 1. It can be an option to have a dehumidifier that is a heat pump. These items are more complex because they are only limited. The prices of these dehumidifiers are affordable. It is advisable to buy when springtime comes where $50 to $100 of savings is offered to buyers in this season. 2. Find a dehumidifier that has a two-speed fan. These units produce less noise and gives low humidity that lessens the efficiency factor. Try to check the units before buying it. Consider the noise it produces if in case the unit will be placed near the bedrooms. 3. Buy units of dehumidifiers that have a rating of 10 L (21 U. S. pints or 2.1 imperial gallon) a day. These units may fit on those small houses that have an average moisture resistance. Their prices may range from $200 to $250 per unit. While those dehumidifiers that have 20 L (42 U. S. pints or 4.2 imperial gallons) a day rating can cost $250 to $300 per unit. These units are best for big and town houses. 4. It is not advisable to buy chemical absorbent dehumidifiers. These units are only suitable for places that have hot and weather climates. 5. Look for the (EF) or the Efficiency Factor of the unit. This is the guide to know the amount of the dehumidifier’s operation cost. There are provided information on the brochure of the unit where the operator’s manual can give the instruction on how to get the EF. There is also a label that will indicate the EF if there are no manuals available on the brochure. The label can be found at the back of the water collection bucket section. This information on dehumidifiers may help buyers how to choose the right unit for their home. Always check the manufacturer’s reputation on selling the said product. Always look for the quality of the unit and ask for the guarantees and warranties of the unit.

Choosing the right humidor humidifier

Those who smoke cigars, take their cigars seriously. For many, it is an indulgence in which they relish; a time to relax or reflect, celebrate or seal the deal. Whatever times or occasions one chooses to celebrate with a cigar, there is one thing they all have in common; their cigars must be fresh or the experience just isn’t worth it. Keeping Cigars Fresh Humidity control is the primary way to ensure freshness for cigars. A humidor humidifier – a device which adds just the right amount of moisture to the air of a humidor is a must have device for anyone who stores their cigars for longer than a week. Collectors of fine cigars have invested a great deal of time and money into finding the finest manufactured cigars. To simply store those in a wooden box or jar would never do. These items must be stored in a properly controlled environment – namely the humidor. Sizes & Styles of Humidor Humidifiers For a small collection of cigars a small container will do. Humidity still however needs to be properly regulated. Depending on the climate in which you live and the weather conditions, there may be enough humidity in the room air. That’s fine, but the enclosed container must also have the right conditions. There are humidifier models designed to create the perfect atmosphere for any size humidor. Units can be installed in humidors holding between 25-30 cigars, or for those that hold 100 cigars. Even whole room systems are available for rooms holding thousands of treasured cigars. Small, box sized humidifiers can run for several months without needing to be refilled with enough water to create the right amount of humidity. This allows you to fill the reservoir and basically forget about it for a long time. For large collections – those held in a full room humidor – a much larger humidifying system is required. These generally hook up to a continuous water source, much like a household hot water tank would. Just as you turn on the faucet in your kitchen, the vaporizer part of the humidifier would turn on when humidity levels get too low for optimal freshness of the cigars. These electric pumps use a hepa filter to act as an internal purifier. The Role of the Hygrometer A hygrometer is the gauge that determines if there is enough humidity or not produced by the humidor humidifier. You can have the top, state of the art humidifier with endless and continuous water supply, but if the hygrometer isn’t working then it is all for naught. A hygrometer can be either analogue or digital and can work to control just humidity or temperature and humidity together as in the digital models. The right combination of both will give you the best overall results. It is important to keep hygrometers well calibrated. A quick check periodically can ensure that you are getting an accurate reading of the true temperature and humidity. If you fail to have an accurate reading from the hygrometer, then too much or too little humidity will destroy your collection.

Suggestions for training your dog

Suggestions For Training Your Dog When it comes to dog training there are no secrets. Every dog training tip is different but it has been used before and if they say its new, it means adapted. The simplest of tasks for an experienced dog master could be the hardest of tasks for the beginner. There are no magic potions, or miracle sayings that can make your dog do what you want. You have to spend time with him, loving him and training him. Many people seem to “have a way with dogs” in the sense that they can ask your dog to do anything and your dog will adhere to their command straight away, you try it five minutes later and your dog just stares at you blankly. It is true that some people have more of a chance getting dogs to do what they say, not because of some aura around them but because of experience and tone of voice. One great dog training tip is your tone of voice. Your dog needs to know that you mean business but he has to know that you’re not angry at him. The handler must find a tone of voice that shows dominance but compassion. If you are constantly shouting at your dog he is going to get used to it, he will not know when he is doing something wrong because he doesn’t know when he is doing something good. A lot of praise and attention is another great dog training tip. Dogs wont learn the difference between good and bad unless they get treated differently. When your dog does something bad don’t roar at him, strictly tell him he was bad and not to do it again. Then when he does it right shower him with cuddles, treats and praise. Dogs come to learn that when they do something that they are told they will get rewarded for it and then after a while it just becomes second nature to them, of course praise is still needed! All dog training tips are different and one dog is not identical to the next, so try them. It won’t hurt to keep trying. The most influence on your dog’s life is when they are 3-16 weeks; this is the time that moulds them into the kind of dog they are going to be when they grow bigger. When you train your dog in these weeks this is what he will be doing for the rest of his life. Make sure you try a variety of the dog training tips available to you, some may work some may not but at least your giving your dog the best start in life. Word count 449
