Everybody knows the woman called Oprah. She is in the Forbes list of 100 richest and most powerful celebrities in the world. Aside from being a talk show host, magazine publisher, and producer --- she is also known as a philanthropist and a global media leader. Oprah Winfrey is one of the most well-known celebrities of our time. She is also considered as the most influential celebrity in television history. Her book club makes celebrities of authors and when she turns the spotlight on an issue, that issue makes headlines. The woman gets things done and she does it in an entertaining and enthralling way. The Oprah Winfrey Show is now the longest running daytime talk show in the US. The show is very influential especially among women. Topics discussed on the show such as weight loss, depression and relationships have literally glued millions of women on their television sets. She also includes counseling sessions on her show by guesting psychologists, life experts, and spiritual mentors. Oprah Winfrey's life was less than glamorous as it is today. Her life story is filled with stories of child abuse, struggle, and poverty. Oprah was born in Mississippi to unwed teenage parents in 1954. Her mother brought Oprah to her grandmother where she was encouraged to go to school and have a religious upbringing. As a child, Oprah never wasted a minute of her young imaginative mind on something that seemed to be boring. In her early years, the only friends she had were farm animals. She gave them parts in the plays she made and included them in games. There were plenty of opportunities for her to display her talents. Her abilities to read, speak, and memorize were unbelievable. Oprah attended Nashville East High School. She was well-liked by students and teachers. She later became well-known because of her skill in public speaking, making her a frequent guest in different churches and women's group meetings. At age nineteen, Oprah got her first broadcasting job at WVOL in Nashville, Tennessee. She became the first African-American woman to anchor at Nashville's WTVF-TV. She moved to Baltimore, Maryland in 1976, and after being co-anchor at WJZ-TV for two years, she was hired to host the station's chat show, “People Are Talking.” In 1984, Oprah moved to Chicago and took over the morning show “A. M. Chicago.” By September of the next year, the show was very successful that it was expanded to an hour and renamed it “The Oprah Winfrey Show.” Her show has remained the number one talk show for 20 consecutive seasons. She was introduced into the Television Hall of Fame in 1994, and has won many awards. Oprah also tried acting. She made her acting debut in 1985 as “Sofia” in Steven Spielberg's “The Color Purple”, for which she received both the Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations. She also has been lauded for her performances in the made-for-television movies “Before Women Had Wings” (1997), “There Are No Children Here” (1993), and “The Women of Brewster's Place” (1989). Now, Oprah still continues to host her popular show. Aside from her “O” magazine, she also has her own site, Oprah. com and, as expected, it is visited by millions of her adoring fans around the world. Oprah. com is a premiere women's lifestyle website. It offers advice on everything from the mind, body, and spirit --- to food, home, and relationships. It provides comprehensive resources related to The Oprah Winfrey Show; O, the Oprah Magazine; and Oprah & Friends. In addition, the website has a unique original content, including Oprah's Book Club, which offers free in-depth reading guides for each book selection, online discussion groups, and Q&A sessions with literary experts. Oprah knows that as long as she is making a difference in people's lives, she will continue with her endeavors. She started out as a determined little girl who made her dreams come true. Oprah has become a financially successful woman, but shares them to the less privileged. She has touched many people's lives. To the underprivileged with who she has shared both laughter and tears, she is a modern-day saint. Today, she mentors millions of people and continues to make a huge impact worldwide as a humanitarian, philanthropist, and advocate for education, human rights, and the empowerment of women.

Outside pressures on the typical insurance adjuster

Insurance adjusters are not without outside pressures they must deal with every day of their work life. It would be advantageous for all readers to be aware of the most important of these because they could put money in your bank. The first of these is your State Department Of Insurance. Every state has a Department, or Commissioner, or Bureau of Insurance that overseas the antics of all Insurance Claims Adjusters and their superiors in that particular state. Each has a Consumer Complaint Division.

If the adjuster you’ve been dealing with has refused to make any offer at all, has engaged in what you consider to be unethical conduct, or has made what you believe to be a ridiculously low offer, you have cause for a complaint. The mere mention of a complaint to the State Department of Insurance may bring the adjuster around to making a better offer. Adjusters would rather not have to deal with a complaint and they positively don’t want copies of them ending up in their personnel file ! Your complaint to the State Insurance Department will accomplish several things.

First, his boss will now become aware that there’s a claimant who intends to do whatever it takes to obtain some positive settlement dollars. That will often inspire that person to take a closer look at your case and come up with a better offer. Also, if indeed you write to the Consumer Complaints Division, it will evolve into what’s always a costly effort because a complaint with the State Insurance Department will add an additionallayer of work, supervised by an extra contingent of personnel. When it’s realized this will likely come to pass they’ll try harder to get rid of you and settle your claim. The vast majority of insurance adjusters dream of one day being promoted to a higher position within the company they work for. They're acutely aware of the fact if their personnel file has correspondence flowing into it from claimants they've handled(plus copies of the letters which have been sent to the insurance commissioner) and those will, somewhere down the line, be read by one of his companies executives. In many instances this will be a man who doesn’t want a “Problem” claims employee spluttering, splashing and crashing about his office area causing headaches and extra work within the framework of that particular executive’s command. The adjuster is fully aware that such complaints will keep him, out on the road forever, and will surely prevent him from moving up the corporate ladder. OTHER CRUCIAL ISSUES THAT THE ADJUSTER IS AWARE OF When it comes to the reality of the way things work in the actual, daily, experience of personal injury claim negotiations and settlement, is often vastly different from the stipulations found in the “Formal law”. That is, legal theory, as it’s written and allegedly supposed to work. What this means, simply stated, is: Adjusters can settle a case, whether their decision to do so is based on “The Law”, or not. In the real world of Personal Injury settlements a “Compromise” (one which often has little and often nothing to do with "The Law") is the order of the day. It’s commonly accepted among those is the business (because that’s what makes their work life so much easier) that in any given case there’s almost always a likelihood of negligence on both sides, rather than just one. What this boils down to in practical terms, is this: Irregardless of the law practically no claim is without merit or totally lacking in value - - especially if the “Value” is simply to “get rid of it”. QUESTION: "How does Dan Baldyga know this to be true?" ANSWER: "Because he was an Insurance Adjuster, Supervisor, Manager and then Trial Assistant for over 30 years. He's been there, and observed that." Although it’s never expressed to him “officially” every adjuster quickly learns, should your case go to trail, compromise will usually be the order of the day, even in cases of questionable liability . This fact alone gives him plenty of room to make a compromise settlement before your case ends up in his Defense Attorney’s hands where such a move will usually take place anyways! Why will this come to pass? Because the costs of preparing for(and then proceeding into)a courtroom battle will skyrocket. Being aware of this is always bubbling and boiling in the gray matter between every adjusters ears. If there’s any question whatsoever (regarding who was at fault in the accident you were involved in) don’t ever give up. Keep pounding away! When faced with a determined claimant who’s willing to wait and haggle and refuses to go away, the chances are the adjuster will eventually make an offer. This comes to pass because the adjuster(especially if your claim has some value) doesn’t want it to end up as a complaint at the State Department Of Insurance. Plus he knows you’ll be made, a settlement offer, somewhere down the line, anyway! So, better he settle it now, before the cost of defending it gets blown out of proportion, later. In order to continue to look good (especially to those who watch their progress and the way they handle the outside pressure’s that haunt every one of them)insurance adjusters - - who want to climb their corporate ladder to success - - must be very cagey individuals who must work hard to please those they work for.

Uxc president to u s utilities buy american

Summary: In the face of Asian competition and possible supply shocks to the uranium market, UxC president Jeff Combs urges U. S. utilities to “support the expansion of production in the United States.” He believes there’s a good chance for $50/pound uranium this year. “Any shock to supply could send prices much, much higher.” StockInterview: How would you sum up the uranium market right now? Jeff Combs: There’s a very tight supply/demand situation that exists now for deliveries over the next several years. If you were going out today to buy uranium for 2007, 2008, and 2009, there’s not that much available supply. The supply/demand balance is very tight, and I think that’s going to be reflected in prices continuing to rise for a while as utilities seek to fill demand for those delivery years. Since most contracting in uranium is done on a term basis, you’re always looking out several years. By the time you reach 2009, for example, you’re looking to fill needs in 2012 and beyond. By that time, supply might have responded sufficiently, or even “over-responded.” Of course, whether or not the supply/demand balance is tighter then depends on how nuclear power expansion is progressing at that point and what happens with respect to the HEU deal. But, in the meantime, production will have had more time to react to higher prices, and this could alleviate some of the supply/demand pressures. StockInterview: How are escalating market-related contracts impacting the uranium price? Jeff Combs: It’s pretty much a sellers’ market right now. You have escalating floor prices that are maybe not too much lower than the current spot price. If you have ceiling prices, they’ll be much higher than the current price, and those will also escalate. In some cases, you don’t even have ceiling prices. In rare cases, you don’t have either ceiling or floor prices. Most producers are looking to sign market-related contracts and not fix the price even on an escalated basis in the future, although they would want floor protection. To a large extent, the utilities don’t have too much choice in the matter except to wait and hope that the competitive landscape changes in the future. However, in many cases they need to procure uranium now and can’t afford to wait. Thus, they must accept what is being offered. StockInterview: Do you continue to see a speculative frenzy in the market? Jeff Combs: There’s still some speculative activity in the market, but I wouldn’t call it so much a frenzy. The importance of this speculative buying has been somewhat over-blown. Total hedge fund/investor volume to date is about 11 million pounds. This buying started towards the end of 2004. The bulk of it was during 2005, and it has continued into this year. It will be much less over the first part of this year versus the first part of 2005; about a half a million pounds so far this year versus 5.5 million pounds through May of 2005. There is probably too much emphasis put on the role of hedge funds or investment funds in the market. If you look at the market, the price – especially the long term contract prices – has been leading the spot price up. The speculators really aren’t involved in that part of the market. Over the same time the hedge funds/investor funds were buying, you’ve probably had a third of a billion pounds transacted under long-term contracts. If you go forward several years from now, you see a very tight supply/demand situation in the market. If you wanted a pure base-escalated contract, the base price for this might be close to $50 today, a good bit higher than the spot price and about a third or so higher than the long-term price at the beginning of the year. StockInterview: We’ve been led to believe the HEU deal with Russia will not be renewed. What is your feeling? Jeff Combs: You need to consider how much things have changed from when the current HEU deal was signed. At that time, the Russian economy was struggling, as was Russia’s nuclear power program. Now Russia’s economy is much more robust, thanks to energy exports. Russia is experiencing a nuclear power renaissance of its own. From this perspective, I think it’s quite unlikely that the HEU deal will be renewed. When I say that, I’m referring to the deal between an agent acting for the Russian Government and an agent acting for the U. S. Government. I don’t think that necessarily means that there will not be any HEU blended down after the current deal is over, but that could be done for internal consumption in Russia or be used as supply for countries where Russia is exporting fuel for Russian-supplied reactors. StockInterview: The trading volume on the spot uranium market has fallen off after what transpired in 2005. Jeff Combs: The volume now is certainly less than what it was last year. Volume so far for the year is 6.3 million pounds on the spot market. If this rate were maintained, it would put volume close to 20 million pounds for the year. This would make it more of a typical market in terms of volume from the standpoint of recent history before 2005. Whether or not volume is higher than this depends a lot on the extent to which utilities that are out in the long term market, right now, are able to get offers to cover requirements in 2007, 2008, and 2009. If they’re not successful, they might come back into the spot market. That could boost spot buying somewhat later in the year. Also, some producers have been buying on the spot market. If this buying picks up, it could add to volume as well StockInterview: Do you believe we’re going to see $50/pound uranium in the near term? Jeff Combs: Oh yes, I think there’s a good chance that we’ll see $50 per pound uranium this year, more likely in terms of long term contracts. I think the highest prices may be reached within the next couple of years. I think that’s when supply will be the tightest. In our uranium market report, we develop three price scenarios – a base case, a high-price case, and a low-price case. Price spikes or overshoots its long-run equilibrium in all three scenarios. In the high case, which would be the most dramatic spike, I would say it would be somewhere in the $60 - $70 range. Price certainly could be higher than this if the wheels come off the wagon. I think you’re definitely looking at price going into the $50s. It’s not too difficult to see a scenario where price goes into the $60s. And then it would come down from there. StockInterview: What goes up must come down? Jeff Combs: I don’t think these higher prices are sustainable in the long term. You also have the situation now where utilities are going out to buy uranium, and they’re not finding what they want over the 2007-2009 period. It might be the case that some of these newer producers, or producers in the process of expanding production, really aren’t in a position to offer the supplies in those years. Ultimately, they will have the supply to offer in maybe 2009 or 2010. Since they’re not offering it right now, price can be pushed up a fair amount, setting up the possibility for a correction in a few years when more of these supplies become available to the market. In the short term, uranium supply and demand are very inelastic. This sets up the potential for an explosive response in price, as witnessed by the recent behavior in price. I have to admit we’ve had to adjust our price projections upwards on more than one occasion. StockInterview: What would be on your checklist of “shocks to the market” or the “wheels coming off the wagon”? Jeff Combs: What we’ve pointed out for a while is that you have the vast bulk of supply coming from a few major production centers and blended-down HEU. If you have a problem with any one of those, it can have a large impact on the market. Obviously, we’ve already had problems at Olympic Dam and McArthur River, and now Cigar Lake, even before it gets into production. If you have problems at any of these in the future, or at Rossing or Ranger, it’s going to impact the market. If you had some problem with the HEU deal between U. S. and Russia, it could have a devastating impact on the market. In the past, these problems have been caused by fire and floods, but other factors such as trade policies or the shortage of equipment could negatively impact supplies going forward. StockInterview: But then why did the Cigar Lake delay seem to pass by unnoticed? Jeff Combs: It hasn’t seemed to have gotten a lot reaction in the market. I think it depends on how people look at it. I’ve heard somebody say, “Well, it just means that it just takes 2.5 million pounds of production out of the market because it gets delayed 6 months.” Unless Cameco increases the rate at which it ramps up Cigar Lake, then it’s going to take more than 2.5 million pounds out of the market, because it’s not going to get to its desired production level until half a year later. Production will be lower in the intervening years, as well. The problem is that this delay in production is coming at a time when supplies are very tight in the market, the 2007-2009 timeframe. I think it could also impact the market by increasing the levels of inventories held because you really don’t know when the next flood or next problem is going to occur. Until production expands more, any shock to supply could send prices much, much higher. StockInterview: What should U. S. utilities do to protect their supply channels in the face of possible market shocks and especially in light of the aggressive Asian appetite for uranium? Jeff Combs: That’s a good question. I think that U. S. utilities should support the expansion of production in the United States, in addition to maintaining their supply channels to major uranium producing countries, or perhaps developing them in the case of Kazakhstan. I think it’s more of a case that U. S. utilities should look at what all their options are, try to stimulate additional supply options, and in the process promote domestic production. Right now the market is fairly concentrated. There are not a lot of suppliers. While foreign utilities haven’t been, to date, looking at the U. S. as a supply source, they also have a desire to promote supply diversity, and could look to the U. S. for supply in the future. StockInterview: To be blunt, are U. S. utilities going to get caught “with their pants down,” at some point during this decade? Jeff Combs: If you had some kind of supply interruption or shock as we were talking about before, certainly that would create problems, not just for U. S. utilities, but for any utilities that were uncovered or have contract payment terms that relate to the market price with no real ceiling price protection. If you have really aggressive nuclear expansion in China, if India is allowed to play in the market, and if Russia goes ahead with its reactor expansion program, this makes the chances of price getting out of control somewhat greater down the road. We’ve been warning of these issues for a while. I clearly don’t think we’re out of the woods yet. When I say that we’re not out of the woods yet, I still believe that some utilities may be putting too much faith in current prices in that they believe that the now higher prices will take care of the problem of future supplies. While higher prices will certainly stimulate more production, I think that you must ask the question whether these prices are the antidote for the supply problem, or whether they are more a symptom of a severe deficit of supply that the market is facing. The answer to this probably determines how proactive utilities will be in securing future supplies. We wrote an editorial in 2003 that I think pretty well captured the state of the market at that time and the market environment we have seen since.

How to turn an idea into 100 000

Do you ever wonder why some people seem to get all the lucky breaks in business while others struggle to barely get by? They seem to be in the right place at the right time. Fact is, maybe they’re not at the right place at the right time; maybe they just know how to make things “happen.” As a business advisor I often see people begin and end a business before they have given it a chance to grow. For some reason, they seem to think that all they have to do is have a product or service to sell and the rest magically takes care of itself. Nothing could be further from the truth. For any business to succeed there are steps that must be taken. Success in business is actually quite simple. Not always easy, but it is simple. As the top rated home-based business in the state of Utah for 2004 I speak from experience. My success is a direct result of the actions I have taken on a daily basis. My success is also a result of having some great mentors over the years. Mentors who were willing to share time and knowledge in order that I could grow my business. My choice with the information that was shared was to either use it or not. Fortunately, in many cases I listened and applied what was recommended. On the other hand, I often had people who served as a warning of what not to do in business. People who struggled day in and day out and yet, were more than willing to tell others how to succeed in business. To me they are as much of a benefit to the growth of my business as those who serve as a model. I was able to look at them and see what I didn’t want. I could also see that in many cases they wanted instant success without the effort. One of the greatest lessons I have learned from my mentors is to explore ideas I get. Not just explore, but have a plan of action and a systematic approach to implementing the idea. And to trust my instinct. And be willing to take risks. It has been said, “With risk comes reward.” Granted, not all my ideas have been wildly successful. As a matter of fact, some downright “failed.” And yet, out of every failure was the seed to another idea that held the possibility of success. Regardless of the type of business you are in, you can achieve a high level of success. It’s a matter of your level of commitment and having a vision of what you want to achieve. Such was the case with an idea I came up with a little over a year ago. Although I had some of those “warning” folks tell me it could never work, I chose to listen to those who have been successful in idea implementation and explore where the idea could take me. Thank goodness I followed my instinct and implemented the idea. That one idea has made me over $100,000. The really amazing thing is that out of that one idea have come others. An offshoot idea is a FR*EE report in which I outline step-by-step what the idea was and how it generated the revenues.

Educate yourself to amazing car finance

When it comes to making a car purchase, paying for it is a big part of the battle. Even mid level new cars run into the $20,000 range. Because of these prices, few people pay cash for cars anymore and statistically about 7 out of every 10 people use car finance to pay for their new vehicle. In order to get the best car finance possible, you need to understand how the whole process work. First, you want to figure out where you are going to get your car finance.

There are a number of institutions that can get you financing. Banks, credit unions, the dealership, or even auto manufacturers can provide financing for your new or used vehicle. Second, with a car finance, you need to realize that whether you buy a new or used vehicle will affect your financing. As a general rule, interest rates will be lower on new cars than on used ones. Also, new cars can often qualify for financing over a longer period of time than can used cars. Next, when it comes to our car finance, don’t believe everything you see or read. Commercials for special financing for those who are first time buyer or have bad credit abound in papers and on the television. These are usually a little too good to come true and come attached with requirements such as extra high down payments and extremely high interest rates. In some cases, both apply to the loan.

Before you go to get your loan, make sure you know about your own credit history. Get a copy of your credit report and go over it with a fine toothed comb. Look at the score as well as the payment histories on it. If anything at all looks incorrect, make sure you get it cleared up. When a lender looks at how much money to give you, they will check out your debt ratios, how long you have been at your job, your history with similar loans, and your credit report as a whole. Once you are armed and ready to consider your car finance, shop around. It is usually a good idea to look for the financing before you buy the car. You will better know what you qualify for that way. Also, you can use your information to bargain further with the dealer. In order for them to finance your car, you should ask them to beat the rate you have from wherever else you have looked.

Remember that everything is negotiable. Just because the car finance rate you got is pretty good, it doesn’t mean that you have to pay what they ask. Negotiate the rate of your loan, the price of the car, or anything else you can talk to them about. It can’t hurt and you could save yourself a lot of money that way. As the process goes on, don’t get caught up in the numbers. The dealers will try to give you monthly payment numbers only so that you don’t notice any added charges. However, sit down with a calculator and just figure out the payments yourself and you will have nothing to worry about. Always know that car financing may seem complicated, but it doesn’t have to be. Educate yourself, shop around, and make sure you know what is going on and you should have no problem.

Better yet, you will find yourself with a great new or pre-owned automobile.

Cisco ccna certification exam the osi model s physical layer

To pass your CCNA exam and earn this coveted certification, you've got to master the seven layers of the OSI model and what each layer does. For those of you taking the two-exam path, you can expect quite a few OSI model questions on the Intro exam. In this seven-part series, we'll spend some time taking a look at each of the OSI model layers, starting with the Physical layer. Often, CCNA candidates ask if the OSI model has any practical uses for network administrators. I used to wonder the same thing, and I can now tell you that the answer is definitely yes! The OSI model isn't something you want to memorize and then forget about, as using the OSI model gives you a structured approach for troubleshooting. Whenever a network device isn't working properly, I always say to "start at the physical layer". The Physical layer is Layer One of the OSI model, and this is where troubleshooting should always start. Is the device on? Is it properly connected? If everything is fine at Layer One, you just move up to Layer Two, and continue in this structured fashion until the problem is identified. The Physical layer is the layer at which bits are transmitted over the physical media. There is no routing or switching going on at this layer. The data has been broken down into more manageable pieces until the data takes the form of ones and zeroes at the Physical layer. Even though there's no routing or switching at the Physical layer, CCNA candidates should be familiar with a couple of network devices that work at Layer One. A repeater is a device that regenerates an electrical signal, allowing the signal to travel longer distances without fading. (The process of an electrical signal gradually fading in strength over distance is "attenuation".) A hub is basically a multiport repeater, and both of these devices are considered Physical layer devices. Ethernet and Token Ring both operate at the Physical layer as well. Learning the OSI model's Physical layer isn't just important in your CCNA exam studies, it's the first step in any network troubleshooting. After all, your network's end users are going to have a tough time sending print jobs to a printer that's turned off!

Cosmetic dentistry education; learning the science of cosmetic dentistry

Cosmetic Dentistry Education; Learning the Science of Cosmetic Dentistry It takes a minute to grab attention. And a beautiful smile can give you just that! But it also takes white even teeth to flash the most beautiful smile. From there originated cosmetic dentistry. This is the science that deals with reconstructing your worn, irregular teeth into something far better looking. And because it is increasingly becoming famous through the years, many schools have been built to offer cosmetic dentistry courses. From there cosmetic dentistry education became one of the most sought after courses in the field of sciences. Cosmetic dentistry education teaches the different types and procedures a cosmetic dentistry practitioner should learn. Among these are how to diagnose a patient and what procedures should be advised to go through. They are also exposed to contouring, veneering, bonding, reshaping and resizing, and whitening among the many other procedures. They are even made to get through real life diagnosing and treating before they could ever finish their chosen cosmetic dentistry education. Most of these students choose to treat friends and immediate family because these procedures are very expensive as well as very sensitive that no non-acquaintance will be willing to take a chance. As learned in the cosmetic dentistry education they enrolled in, every student is made to choose a patient as well as the procedure that they will practice on them. Most uses the following procedure to their ‘patients’: 1.) Dental whitening. This procedure is the procedure that surprisingly turns teeth into eight times brighter and whiter teeth. The procedure can be exercised in two ways: by laser or by gel trays. The laser dental whitening is the most prevalent way of whitening teeth because of its immediate result. A patient can expect good results in as little as an hour in a dental clinic or lab. The gel tray dental whitening, on the other hand, is the old way of whitening the teeth. It takes more than a visit to enjoy the good results. The treatment will also include your participation as it will have to continue even when you are at home. The similarity of these two procedures is in the result, while the great contrast is in the professional and treatment fees. 2.) Dental reshaping and resizing. This procedure will result into even and properly aligned teeth that everyone wants to have. The treatment can be done in one or more clinic visits, depending on the number of tooth to be treated. Usually, an excellent cosmetic dentistry practitioner advises more than one-sitting treatment for both the student and the patient’s convenience. 3.) Dental veneering. This procedure involves the use of dental models as the cosmetic dentistry education practitioner will make crowns and porcelain veneers to be placed over the irregular teeth. As a result, the patient enjoys even, whiter teeth in one or few visits to the student trainee. 4.) Dental bonding and root canals. These procedures have something in common—dental restructure and recovery. The root canal procedure will use bonding as soon as the patient’s decaying teeth or tooth is ready. Usually, root canals are done when there is an inflammation on a tooth or teeth but the patient wants to go through a restoration process. The cosmetic dentistry practitioner will clean the decay and cut the root of the teeth from its nerve, which is causing the inflammation. Depending on the situation, the student may choose to immediately close or bond the affected tooth or if the condition needs more cleaning and taking off the inflammation fluid, the patient will be advised to come for more treatments.

Being in debt is a natural occurrence especially for people who have more wants than what they have. On the other hand, there are people who could not even meet their basic necessities so they are forced to borrow from people and from credit institutions. Borrowing may be normal but once it gets out of hand then it can already become a serious problem. There are people who earn enough for their basic needs but who yearn for more material things so they tend to borrow excessively. Spending too much and beyond your means can be dangerous because it can lead to indebtedness. When a person’s expenses are way beyond his earnings then he may be in trouble. People who cannot control their spending habits often end up with nothing on their backs. Statistics show that Americans have at least three credit cards per household. This means that majority of Americans are living comfortable lives because of credit. Using credit cards could not be helped due to the popularity of plastics.

However, credit cards have been known to wreck reputations and even people’s lives. Being indebted up to your neck can be a horrible situation. A person who has numerous debts is often harassed not only by his creditors but also by the feeling of being helpless in honoring all his obligations. It is useless to play hide and seek with your creditors because it will ultimately ruin your credit rating and can even land you in court or worse, in prison. The sad fact is that people are most often buried in debt because of the very high interest rates they impose on the credit they give. If you happen to be one of those debtors who have a lot of creditors and no means of paying them immediately then you must start thinking about the possibility of debt reduction.

No matter how indebted a person is, there is always a possibility of reducing his debt through a proper debt reduction program. Availing of a debt reduction program can bring back the financial independence of a person as well as a better credit rating. Debtors can choose from a variety of solutions for their credit problems like consolidating their debts, getting counseling for your credit, filing for bankruptcy or negotiating with their creditors. Debt consolidation can be a good solution but it will only create another debt in order to pay the old accounts. Credit counseling can work but since the counseling companies get a certain percentage from the amount you pay your creditor, they would be more loyal to the creditors than to you. Bankruptcy is also a choice but not a wise one since it can ruin your credit rating as well as your confidence and reputation. Debtors now have a better choice and that is debt negotiation. This means haggling with your creditors to allow you to make affordable payments on a monthly basis and without interest.

There are plenty of companies offering debt negotiation services and you can leave the trouble of negotiating with creditors in their hands. While debt negotiation is the best option available to achieve debt reduction, people should always bear in mind that credit will always be good but it carries with it a serious responsibility.

Something for seniors to smile about

A generation ago, dentures and bridgework were all too common among U. S. seniors. Today, according to a recent report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Americans are keeping their natural teeth longer. In part, seniors can thank endodontists, the dentists who specialize in performing root canal treatment and saving natural teeth. Endodontists' advanced training and access to cutting-edge technologies allow them to save older teeth that once were considered hopeless. As people age, the canals inside their teeth narrow, making tooth-saving procedures more difficult.

Using new technologies, such as ultrasonics and operating microscopes, endodontists can locate even the smallest canals to remove inflamed pulp and nerves, and preserve natural teeth. Digital imaging, which is used in place of traditional X-rays to take pictures of teeth, is another tool that significantly increases endodontists' ability to find the cause of pain in even the narrowest root canal. "Endodontists are accustomed to working within a very small space," says Dr. Marc Balson, D. D.S., president of the American Association of Endodontists. "Our background, which includes four years of dental school followed by two to three years of advanced training, allows us to perform root canal treatment efficiently on any patient." During root canal treatment, the endodontist removes the inflamed or infected pulp (the soft tissue inside teeth), carefully cleans and shapes the inside of the canal (a channel inside the root), then fills and seals the space. A well done root canal is like a solid foundation in a house - it allows for further restorative work to be done on a tooth with a likelihood of long-term health and stability. Endodontists' training also helps them deal with seniors' special medical needs. The same prescription medications that allow older Americans to lead healthier, more active lives can pose problems when it comes time to undergo dental procedures. Endodontists routinely conduct a thorough assessment of elderly patients' medical histories in preparation for root canal treatment, so as to avoid harmful drug interactions and safely treat patients with high blood pressure and other chronic conditions. The most important advantage endodontists offer older patients is experience. On average, endodontists perform 25 root canal treatments each week, while general dentists perform two. This means that seeing an endodontist for root canal treatment is the healthiest way for seniors to avoid dentures, bridgework or artificial implants, and preserve their smiles for a lifetime.

Emergency preparation

Emergency Preparedness For a Hurricane There is nothing anyone can do when nature decides to leash out its fury. There is no way to stop it so people should brace for the worse and seek shelter. In order to minimize the loss of life, most towns and cities have created emergency plans. Sirens are placed in strategic locations to announce a major evacuation; the emergency broadcast system is in place in the event that power and electricity has been cut off as well as stockpiles of food, water and medicine. Those who live in the coastal communities will usually be battered by hurricanes. This happens between the months of June until November in the Atlantic and from May to November in the northern Pacific Ocean. When this is first spotted on radar, the forecaster will already inform the public about it. There is no need yet to panic here since the weather conditions may change in the next few hours but if there are no improvements, it is time to activate emergency procedures. The hurricane may pack winds exceeding more than a 100 miles per hour that can make cars, pieces of metal or wood cause severe damage to the home. Households can board up the windows and doors of the house with hurricane shutters and plywood. People will rush to the supermarket to stock up on food, water and other essentials. These include candles, batteries for the radio and the flashlight as well as fuel for the generator. All of these things are necessary especially water to prevent dehydration so every possible container must be used including the bathtub. The most important which must never be forgotten is a medical kit. This should have bandages and some antibiotics to be able to treat anyone who is ill or injured until the person can be brought out to a medical facility for better treatment. Should the incoming hurricane be classified as a category 4 or 5, residents are advised to evacuate and seek higher ground. It will be a good idea to travel light so only a few pieces of clothing, food and water must be brought into the vehicle. The citizens are also advised to drive slowly and avoid panicking since this could cause accidents on the road. The hurricane will pass within a few hours. This is the only time that people will be able to go out or return to see how much damage was done. It is only after assessing the damage that towns and cities can say whether the emergency preparedness procedures that were sent in place were effective or not. One indication that it works is if no casualties are reported. This is because a house or even a building can be repaired but the life of an individual can never be replaced. The people who live in the household can rehearse the emergency preparedness plan to see if some improvements need to be made. This is because time is off the essence in order to be safe in this type of crisis. Emergency preparedness is key to ensure the survival of everyone present. People who live through this annually know what to do but those who are moving into the community should learn fast to be able to survive the onslaught of the hurricane.

Five christmas survival tips for the divorced single parent

For the over 50% of marriages that end in divorce, Christmas can be a hugely trying time. Since the season is one of the most stressful times of the year anyway, this onslaught of raw emotion to the divorcee can be overwhelming. This is reflected in the Christmas surge of suicide rates. The feelings are that much more intense if there are kids involved. I know for myself, nothing could have prepared for me for the crushing sadness I felt during my first post-divorce Christmas. As a father of two young girls, it was like I was emotionally disconnected from everyone. The joy of the season was something I just switched on, for brief periods, when my little girls were at my house leading up the holidays. When they would leave until their next visit, the joyful glow of the Christmas lights and Christmas tree seemed to turn cruel and I would turn it all off. It seemed I had an inverse reaction to the level of season joy around me: the higher it was, the worse I felt. Going to the shopping malls, alone, just intensified the feelings of disconnect, as I watched parades of children that weren't mine, going through the usual excited frenzy. I remember sitting on my couch, alone in the dark, watching movies on Christmas Eve, counting down the hours until the girls arrived on Christmas Day at Noon. In the middle of the night of that first Christmas Eve, I reached my lowest of lowest and for the briefest of seconds, dark thoughts crossed my alcohol free mind about putting an end to the pain. Mercifully, I did nothing except scare myself. In fact, because now I appreciated how intense all of the feelings were, I knew I needed a plan to get through the season the next time. From that point on, I came up with the following five step plan. Step 1 - Do not be alone. You have to reach out and ask for support, from family, friends or whoever. The Crisis Line is always there to re-assure you (I know). Step 2 - Know you are not alone and connect with other people in your same circumstance. I met several people over the next year, male and female, who were in the same boat as I was. We actually had a house party on Christmas Eve the next year because no one had their kids. Everyone had a few laughs, cursed the Exs and yearned for their kids, together. Step 3 - Do not feel guilty. Your kids are enjoying two Christmas celebrations instead of just one. What kid wouldn't love that? Step 4 - Give to charity or volunteer at the Food Bank. This really helped me appreciate that even in my sadness, I still had food and a home and there were people way worse off then I was. Step 5 - Don't be so hard on yourself. From the time we were kids, the Christmas season commercial frenzy creates a ton of expectations in all of us. During divorce, with your own kids jumping between houses, those expectations become very difficult if not impossible to maintain. This compounds the feeling of being a failure because you cannot emotionally keep pace with the joy you see around you. Over my 5 single Christmas seasons, I learned a whole new way of appreciating the season. I started to celebrate the fact that I was surviving on my own, learning to live my life differently and being a fantastic father every 2nd week. Christmas became less about gifts and more about patting myself on the back for keeping it all together. That attitude shift made a world of difference. I truly learned that the biggest gift you can give the people around you, especially your kids, is your own survival. That's what they'll always remember.

Weight loss hypnosis

Obesity is a national epidemic. 58 million Americans are overweight and 80% are more than 25 lbs overweight. 70% of heart disease and 80% of all type II diabetes is directly attributed to obesity. 15% of children are obese and 70% between the ages of 6-8 believe that fast food is healthier than home cooked meals. Today’s children could be the first generation whose life expectancy is less than that of their parents. Much of the problems associated with obesity begin in childhood.

We make concrete decisions about self-image, what food means to us and how active a life we will lead, very early in our lives. There are also cultural influences which can dictate the nutritional paths we take. Another factor is the emotional and compulsive connections to food. Millions use food to feel good or to at least feel better. Food offers temporary relief from symptoms of depression, loneliness, anger and stress. Another factor is how productively our body’s function which can have a major influence in how we look. A hypoactive thyroid slows down the metabolism making it next to impossible to lose excess weight. In addition to all of this there is the problem of social hypnosis or advertising which bombards us with a never ending stream of useless, unproductive and unhealthy information 24 hours a day, everyday. To make matters worse advertisers aren’t even consistent with their manipulative message.

On one hand they say we need to be anorexic to be beautiful, and on the other they say that ‘happy meals’ qualify as healthy nutrition. Long term problems begin when these unhealthy patterns are repeated over time. We are creatures of habit, we are what we think. Consistently repeating patterns of unhealthy nutrition and sedentary living ensures that they will continue. It’s the repetition that gets them deeply rooted in our long term memory, or subconscious mind, where they take on a life of their own. When an individual attempts to alter the path of an established pattern conflict results. This is what a smoker goes through when trying to quit on a conscious level. They experience mood swings, cravings and palpitations. Conflict with dieting occurs when an individual eat things they really don’t want to eat and does things they don’t really want to do, like exercise. When the subconscious doesn’t get what it expects individuals become uncomfortable and stressed. The only way to make things right is to give the subconscious mind what it wants. Intellectually they know the changes they should make and the type of body they want to have but when this inner conflict arises the individual feels powerless and more often than not they revert to their old ways. Hypnosis melts away the conflict. It helps uninstall old patterns and rapidly download new applications supporting new positive thoughts, actions and results. By stepping into this peaceful inner daydream world individuals have the unique opportunity to take control in way they never thought possible. Mental imagery is one of the most powerful benefits of hypnosis. The hypnotist taps into the client’s imagination which is in the subconscious. This enables clients to create powerful images of ultimate health and fitness. Then the hypnotist offers suggestions supporting how easy it would be to make a few changes if this is the reward. This establishes a linear subconscious connection between action and positive results, and by routinely reinforcing this peaceful message clients easily go from concept to reality. Making changes on the subconscious level makes new thoughts seem automatic. It speeds up the learning curve. A good clinician will record your session so you can listen to it on your own. Repetition rules with the problems and solutions as well. It took years of repetition to create the problem but the good news is that hypnosis dramatically speeds up the process to success. With hypnosis an individual can disconnect from patterns of compulsive or emotional eating. One method directs the client to regression back to where compulsive or emotional eating began. Usually there is a general idea of how and when such patterns began. Then they imagine a past event is replayed and they can see and feel the stress, concern or compulsion with food begin. It’s important to recreate the anxiety because then they get to make it go away. They picture a thick glass dome being lowered over the past event and the lower it gets the more freedom and relief they experience. In moments the doom locks down into the floor completely preventing this experience from ever affecting their adult life again. Once they are free from the past they move forward and freely begin to choose new paths supporting fitness and fulfillment. Success with hypnosis depends on how open the client is to relaxing, whether they are truly committed to creating positive change and if they give themselves the opportunity to become proficient with the process. Serious minded individuals with a strong desire to learn and grow usually do very well. In addition to weight loss clients become more relaxed, centered and focused. They are much less affected by the day-to-day stress of life. This type of routine relaxation produces more smiles, laughter and an easy natural progression to shaping the body they were meant to have.

How to make tinctures from herbs

The philosophy behind tincture is to capture the spiritual and physical essence of the plant. This is done by using the power of ethyl alcohol to dissolve and preserve the herb in question. The substance used to extract the herbs is known as the menstrum. The herbs you are tincturing are known as the mark. Tincturing will extract and preserve both the water-soluble and alcohol-soluble properties of an herb. In the interest of taking a more involved stance in their health, many people are turning to homemade tinctures made from fresh or dried herbs. Tinctures have proven to be more powerful and longer lasting than dried herbs. Dried herbs can get moldy or be eaten by insects, tinctures do not. Tinctures will keep up to two years and keep their potency if stored properly. Making your own tinctures will save you quite a bit of money.

If you purchase tinctures in a retail store you will get a few ounces whereas if you make it yourself it will yield about a quart. When purchasing herbs, make sure you are buying from a reputable source. Better yet, grow your own herbs to be sure of the highest possible quality. When growing your own you can make any number of combinations to make up your tinctures. I have also found that when growing my own herbs I get the most enjoyment, knowing not only did I make the tincture but I grew the herbs. I become part of the process from beginning to end. There are several items that you will need to make your own tinctures. First you need either powdered herbs or fresh cut herbs. Vodka, brandy or rum, 80-100 proof to cover the herbs. Mason jars with lids. Muslin or Cheesecloth that is unbleached. Lastly, labels for the jars. You will need 7-10 ounces of chopped fresh herbs for every quart of vodka, brandy or rum. I prefer to use fresh herbs when making my tinctures. When using powdered herbs, I use 4 ounces of herbs to one pint of liquid. If you are making a tincture from bitter herbs it is best to use rum as it will mask the taste of the herbs. To make a non-alcoholic tincture use distilled water, glycerol or vinegar. Keep in mind that if you use vinegar the tincture will have to be refrigerated. Put your herbs in the mason jars and then pour the liquid over them so that it comes up to about an inch above the herbs. Seal tightly and label the jars then put them in a very dark, warm area. Keeping them in a paper bag has worked well for me. You will have to shake the jar everyday, several times a day if you can mange it. At first check the solution daily to make sure the vodka, brandy or rum still covers the herbs. Let the mixture steep for at least two weeks and up to three months. When you reach the allotted waiting period, line a sieve with the cheesecloth or muslin and pour the liquid thru the sieve into another bottle. Gather up the ends of the cheesecloth and squeeze to extract all of the liquid. You can now fill small bottles with droppers with the tincture for ease in use. Be sure to label the jar with the name and the date. The dose is one teaspoon tincture in a cup of tea, juice or water taken three times daily. There are no right formulas for making tinctures. Experiment with different combinations. Be sure you write down the formula so when you come up with a winning combination you will have it on file. Here are a few ideas for treating colds. Make tinctures from the following herbs: * echinacea (leaves, flowers) * elder (leaves, flowers, berries) * eyebright (leaves, flowers) * ginger (root) * peppermint (leaves) * yarrow (leaves, flowers) * catnip (leaves Copyright © 2006 Mary Hanna All Rights Reserved.

Emagrece sim weight loss diet pills fda warning

Amidst confusion and controversy over the safety and efficacy of Emagrece Sim, the U. S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has finally released a formal warning to consumers. The warning states that the use of Emagrece Sim and Herbathin Dietary Supplements may be harmful. In fact Emagrece Sim, also known as the Brazilian Diet Pill contains a cocktail of dangerous ingredients, some of which are controlled substances and found in prescription drugs. The side effects of the use of Emagrece Sim may be serious and the FDA is advising that use could result in injury. The drug is made by Brazilian pharmaceutical companys Fitoterapicos and also Phytotherm Sim. http://1drugrehabcentre. com reports that all efforts are currently being made to stop further shipments of Emagrece Sim from entering the United States although the task may prove difficult. The current demand for weight loss drugs is almost insatiable in the majority of the country however the FDA hopes that by alerting their field staff, they may be able to contain much of the traffic. Although Emagrece Sim is currently the focus for authorities, experts are saying that there is a growing problem with potentially dangerous products entering the U. S. market. Like Emagrece Sim, the unknown quantities and quality of many drugs that claim to assist people with weight loss, is becoming a serious problem. Emagrece Sim actually contains a drug called Fenproporex, a stimulant that the body converts to amphetamine.

This means that aside from the immediate health risks of taking Emagrece Sim, people may unwitting find themselves failing urinalysis testing for amphetamines. The drug comes in pill form and is available in a range of strengths although all levels of potency have now been outlawed says http:// rehabcentreinfo. com . Unfortunately Emagrece Sim is still available on the internet, but the emphasis is now on educating people of the dangers of this weight loss formula before irreversible damage is done.

Why aren t you using online fitness coaching

If I were to tell you that you could burn away as much fat as possible by sitting at your computer twiddling your fingers and toes, would you believe me? Well I sure hope you don't! However, losing weight in the confines of your own home at your computer is not only possible, it's a reality. What I mean is that you can use the advice that's given to you through online fitness coaching to pursue a more productive way of burning off undesired fat and reach your fitness goals. Any program, no matter how difficult or time consuming takes EFFORT. Through online coaching, anyone can receive the advice and the motivation to put 100% effort into their fitness goals. The end result whether its weight loss, toning, and muscle gain can be achieved with certainty. It's all about saving time and money! If you can imagine yourself with a personal trainer at the gym, receiving face to face advice, and helping you out physically with your exercise routine. Then by all means sign up to one of your local programs and off you go! There's nothing wrong with having your own personal trainer. But the down side is that these expert trainers cost money. Some can charge $150 per hour, and many find this service so expensive to the point where their wallets are paper-thin and overdue bills are pilling up! The cost each type of personal training (offline - meet your trainer type) varies with different levels of service and convenience, let's investigate some of these services on offer. Personal training in a health club: This has to be the least expensive due to the fact that you're already paying the club a membership fee. You could be stuck with long cues for equipment let alone the discomforting stares of fellow exercisers. Working out at home: With a personal trainer, this can obviously be the most convenient provided you have some equipment at home. You might find yourself walking to the bank more often with the higher rates these "come to your home" types charge. Private training studio: If you've accepted the invitation for personal training at their studio, chances are you'll be paying fees that would fit into the "pricey" category. Location is also another factor; if the studio is located further away than you can walk then it may not be convenient for you. Furthermore, if the personal trainer has a busy schedule, you may not get the appointment times you had hoped for. Although location and price can be inconvenient, there's no doubt that this method can be the most effective way to exercise. Sometimes, it's a case of confidence and personal preference to avoid certain situations, which may leave you embarrassed, confused or bothered. For example, many have been pushed into taking advantage of the local gym's personal trainers. In terms of the convenience factor, it's a plus if you've signed up for a lengthy period. But you might find that sweating and stretching in front of hundreds of people just isn't your thing! Many people just can't stand that. Diets and Personal Training are alike! The truth has to be told here. People who start an exercise routine (with or without a personal trainer), only half will continue this good habit for long-term. The rest will have thrown in the towel within 6 months. How surprised would you be to find out that old habits are repeated when you stop personal training? This obviously varies from person to person but the lack of trainer support can sometimes render a person lazy to the point where they neglect their fitness... because for many it's the external motivation that provides the will to exercise and reach their goals in life. Online fitness coaching can provide a very similar service to traditional personal training, and the costs involved are usually much lower and much more affordable for the general population. In many situations, online consultation can be an excellent service if the trainer can deliver the right amount of motivation and supporting advice to the client. This can be seen in the case of weight loss, where many clients find weight loss a difficult task due to lack of confidence. There are always that bunch of people who will shy away from a personal trainer because of misconceptions and stereotypes. They may fear loosing face having to hire one or be under false impression that trainers are just for athletes or bodybuilders. This is far from the truth - a supporting hand from a trainer can go a long way for many wanting to slim down or improve their fitness levels. Online coaching really excels when the trainer acts as a mentor and plays a supporting role to dissolve misconceptions and stereotypes about people's inability to achieve the results they're after. Let's go through some of the benefits that can be attained using online coaching: * Personal coaching no matter where you or the trainer are located around the globe can help you develop the will and motivation to exercise * Save money on travel expenses and expensive personal trainers * You can exercise when you want discarding the need for timed exercise appointments * Where self-motivation fails, online training can provide enough support to stick with a homemade program. * No need to workout at a specific place designated by the trainer, take control over your workouts at home, at the gym, at work or on the road * Sit in the comfort of your own home on your computer to receive coaching and advice * Have your training questions and problems answered with educated responses, promptly and confidentially via email * Allows for tremendous flexibility, especially for those who travel. * Allows privacy for those who are intimidated by "public" personal training, such as people who don't feel comfortable with their bodies. * The American Council on Exercise asserts that online training is an effective supplement to working one-on-one with a qualified trainer As you weigh down the benefits of online personal training, you'll find that each method will give you substantial results provided that YOU are willing to put 100% effort into your exercise & dietary program. Personal trainers can't do all the work for you, but they can guide you in the right direction to the point where you can observe results in weeks not years. Whatever the interest, the choice comes down to you. Whether you're comfortable just working out with a friend, willing to spend money to see a personal trainer, or find opportunity with an online trainer, the achievements you make will be proportional to the time you put in.

This also goes for decorations, oversized stuffed animals, and other items that you may have collected over the years. Anything that takes up space should be considered, and if it’s not necessary, you’ll want to clear it out. Nothing is more effective at opening up a house than getting rid of clutter.

Pay special attention to keeping hallways and doorways clear. Not only will this make people feel that you have a spacious home, if you're considering selling, they can easier imagine their own things inside of it.

Organic roses in the flower garden part 1

Many people believe growing their flowers and vegetables organically is healthier for them and their environment. It is natural that you may wish to grow your roses this way also. Using the pesticides and insecticides that are usually considered to go along with growing roses and keeping them healthy can cause many people have to health problems . Maybe you just don't want those kind of chemicals in your garden and around your children. This article will give some pointers in using more natural methods of growing your roses. 1. First do your homework and find out what type of roses grow well in your area. Buy disease resistant varieties. If you live in an area that has problems with a certain disease, look for a variety that is resistant to it. If you can, purchase organic roses. As they have already been growing with organic methods, this supposes they are "healthier". and not already loaded with chemicals. Thus they have a stronger immune system. Of course, buy roses with no blemishes on them. 2. Roses like full sun. Make sure they are placed so as to get 6 to 8 hours of sunlight a day. 3. Do not crowd your roses together. Ensure that stress is reduced by providing lots of space for air to circulate around the bush. Take growth of the rose bush into account. 4. Plant your roses in good loamy soil. If your soil is not ideal, then amend it with organic material such as from your compost pile. You do have a compost pile, don't you? Roses like well draining soil but they don't want it draining as fast as you might get with sand, so amend your sandy soil. If you have clay soil, an alternative requiring a bit of work is to build a raised bed for your roses much like vegetable gardeners use. It should be at least a foot deep but more is better. Fill it with will amended soil. 5. Keep your watering consistent. Don't allow your plants to dry out and suffer stress before watering. Roses can need up to 2 inches of water a week. Water every two to three days. This, of course, depends on your area and the type of weather (how much rainfall) you are getting. Also, be careful not to stress the plant by overwatering and depriving the roots of oxgen. 6. Mulch, mulch, mulch! Mulching can reduce the stress on your rose in several ways. It helps to hold in moisture which can be very good in a hot, dry climate. It helps maintain a more even temperature in the root zone. And mulch can smother weeds that could be competition for your lovely roses. As the mulch decomposes, it adds more nutrients to the soil around your plant. Lastly, it can cut down on some of your work. ;-) 7. Roses are, what could be considered, heavy feeders. They respond well to fertilizer and should be fertilized on a consistent schedule. Most organic fertilizers are slow-acting and may produce less spectacular results of a non-organic fertilizer. Some organic fertilizers to consider are composted manure, fish emulsion, alfalfa meal, blood meal, and cottonseed meal. If you wish to have a truly organic rose garden, you should ensure that your fertilizer is also organic. Of all these the only one you can be sure is truly organic would be your composted manure if you know exactly where it comes from and how the animals are raised. Perhaps you should consider your own animals raised organically. Chicken manure is very high in nitrogen and some localities allow a small backyard flock. Make sure it is composted thoroughly as chicken manure is very "hot" and will burn your plants. 8. Prune your roses in the early spring. To keep your roses healthy, get out the dead wood, damaged wood and anything that starts to look diseased (and don't compost these trimmings). Thin out your plant to keep it from being crowded. Don't allow branches to rub against each other. This will allow air and sunlight to get to the whole plant keeping it healthier. In part 2 later this week, we will discuss some organic methods of combating specific diseases and pests.

Design

The word ‘design’ is multifaceted. It can refer to plans, proposals or creative endeavors. Design surrounds us in every aspect of our life--homes, buildings, city planning, vehicles, art, theater, clothing, and toys. Even food has a design element, presentation. So, design is what makes anything functional, appealing and attractive. It has aesthetic functions that result from inspiration, research, and modeling. To some the sense of design is ingrained in their genes, while others acquire a design sense through rigorous training. The principles to be used will of course depend upon whether one is looking at architectural, automotive, computer or machinery design, which are scientific in nature and have different aims, or communication design, which is applied to advertisements, books, magazines, websites, and so on. In the case of communication design, it must have a focal point, everything else being secondary. It must follow certain simple rules: the design must be simple and clutter free, it must represent clearly the theme or element for which it is in use, it must be functional and have a visual hierarchy. The size, color, texture, and types must be varied to create depth and contrast. The keys are: alignment, proximity, repetition, and contrast. The spaces must create depth and the colors harmony. Good design is said to be 98% common sense. Before a design is visualized, one must determine what it represents, its uses, the audience, the focus, and goals. Every design must portray emotion and imagination – it must draw the eye time and again to its center, and elicit a response and recall. Creativity, the ability to listen and comprehend what others have to say and absorb the very soul of the project concerned, are the qualities of a good designer. Design straddles many worlds—philosophical, scientific, as well as creative. In each world, design, like a potter’s wheel, gives shape as well as functionality.
