Family relationships have always been difficult, regardless of the time in history, the authors say. Too often today modern families erroneously conclude they are confronting matters with which no one has dealt with before. Instead, the authors say similarities between past and present situations abound.
In "Families of the Bible: How They Coped with Today's Issues", Howard Hovde and Louis Moore examine biblical families' lives and offer practical tips for parents of modern-day homes.
In this matter-of-fact look at the lessons that can be learned from biblical families, Hovde and Moore inspect 12 different familial situations from the Bible and extract the important connections with issues in today's society.
The authors begin with a study of the family system and analyze why problems occur within families. Hovde and Moore then tackle topics such as murder, grief, infertility, sibling rivalry, adoption, the loss of a child, the importance of a spiritual family, empty nests and more. To learn how parents should interact with each other and with their children to provide the best home life possible, Hovde and Moore dive into the lives of Cain and Abel, Abraham, Jacob and Esau, Moses, David, the Prodigal Son, Paul and others.
Hovde and Moore hope this unique material will "make the journey with family easier and more exciting." This book is perfect for parents who need help within their family, but "Families of the Bible" could also be helpful as a basis for a sermon series or a Bible study, or as a device used within premarital or marital counseling sessions.
Howard Hovde, Ed.D. has been a marriage and family therapist, a pastor, and director of the Laity Lodge Retreat Center in Kerrville, TX. He is a popular speaker at seminars conferences, and programs on marriage and family life. He and his wife, Carole, live in Kerrville.
Louis Moore has been a newspaper reporter editor, book author, and media manager for a religious denomination. He and his wife, Kay, have led marriage enrichment retreats for couples throughout the United States and internationally. They live in Garland, TX.

Thomas is known as one of the fiercest linebackers to ever play the game. He was selected All-Pro eight times and fans honored him with nine trips to the Pro Bowl. To this day, Thomas owns the record of seven quarterback sacks in a single game. Derrick still holds NFL records for number of sacks, interception and recoveries in a game, career records for sacks, forced fumbles and fumble recoveries for the Kansas City Chiefs.
During the ceremonies of Super Bowl 43, it was announced that Thomas would take his place in Canton alongside other football greats.
"We are all so thankful to Derrick's fans, voting members of the Hall and fellow Hall of Famers for honoring him with an enshrinement into the Pro Football Hall of Fame," says Edith Morgan, Thomas' mother. "We lost Derrick much too soon. His family and friends are comforted each day by hearing from his fans on how much he meant to them and their desire to see him in the Hall. We are so very thankful that he is being recognized for his achievements on and off the field, and we will continue his good works so that his legacy will shine forever."
Mrs. Morgan established the Moms 2 Moms 58 Foundation to honor her son's legacy and further his charitable spirit. The foundation works with professional football players, non-profits, community leaders, politicians, faith-based organizations and entertainers to educate the public on car seat and seatbelt safety, children's health issues and sports safety outreach to youth.
With the help of donors and previous grants from the National Traffic Highway Safety Administration, Moms 2 Moms 58 has traveled the country speaking to high school students on the importance of using seatbelts; organizing free car seat installation demonstrations and give-a-ways; and mobilizing athletes to speak in communities on various health and safety topics. Each year, Moms 2 Moms 58 hosts the "Celebration of Life Celebrity Weekend" in Derrick's hometown of Miami, FL. The Celebration of Life was established to honor the life and charitable works of Thomas through music, entertainment and fundraising for community enrichment
programs. Moms 2 Moms 58 and Celebration of Life are administered through 501(c)(3) partnership.
Moms 2 Moms 58 hopes fans will connect in celebrating Derrick's induction and upcoming legacy celebrations. Fans can connect on Twitter @Moms2moms58, LinkedIn.com and on Facebook join Moms 2 Moms58/Hall of Famer Derrick Thomas.
Please join Moms 2 Moms 58 at the "Celebrate" Derrick Thomas festival on July 31, at downtown Kansas City (MO) at City Market for the FREE celebration.
The Road to Canton ends in Canton, OH at the Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement of Derrick Thomas on Aug. 8. Tickets are still available for several of the enshrinement events and Hall of Fame game. For those unable to join Moms 2 Moms 58 in Kansas City or in Canton, please celebrate Derrick's entering the Hall in the spirit in which he lived and played football - with fun, love and great faith.

Such a scenario, (as detailed in The History of Money Part 1, found at http://www.xat.org/xat/moneyhistory.html), is precisely at the root of the United States secession from Britain. In his autobiography, Benjamin Franklin wrote that, �The inability of the colonists to get power to issue their own money permanently out of the hands of George III and the international bankers was the PRIME reason for the Revolutionary War."
The founding fathers of the United States clearly deposited the power to make money in the hands of Congress, as an effort to avert tyranny. This is defined in the U.S. Constitution. Nevertheless, the history of the U.S., up until the early 20th Century, spun �round the hub of a never ending battle by banksters coveting control of currency against democracy�s defenders.
In 1913, the tide turned. It flipped to fatally favor a greedy group that would come to manipulate affairs. Today this cartel is at the zenith of power in the U.S. and across much of the globe. It was this year the plan to launch the Federal Reserve Banking system was born. It hatched from a private pow-wow of bankers and bureaucrats in a secret meeting. At Georgia�s Jekyll Island resort, these designs were designated and kept cloaked in secrecy.
Eustace Mullins wrote in his 1983 book, (excerpted at http://www.thirdworldtraveler.com/Banks/Jekyll_Island_TSOTFR.html), that in Georgia, the richest of the rich picked the name Federal Reserve to deceive the citizens "�into thinking it was not a central bank. However, the Jekyll Island plan would be a central bank plan, fulfilling the main functions of a central bank; it would be owned by private individuals who would profit from ownership of shares. As a bank of issue, it would control the nation's money and credit.�
This Federal Reserve corruption became the norm with the establishment of this institution by congress. It was signed into law by President Woodrow Wilson and took effect in 1914. The way this scam works is simple and highly profitable. This network of banks, owned by the wealthiest international bankers, prints Federal Reserve notes known on the street as U.S. dollars.
All the banksters need is the ink and paper to print on. In other words, the cost is minimal. Then it lends this money to the U.S. government with interest. Pennies that print a 5, 10, 20 or 100 dollar bill multiply into mammoth mounds of money. Of course, the selling of this money is highly profitable. So what if the debt only grows and capital is never paid back? These guys that own the FED are literally making money out of thin air for profit.
This system is the cornerstone keeping corporate banksters the driver�s seat of the United States and much of the world. Does this sound like an exaggeration? Take a look at Barack Obama. The biggest corporate sector for his 2008 campaign is banks and securities firms. Five of his 20 top contributors came from this sector for a total of $14,808,875. If you don�t take my word, check out the Federal Election Commission�s figures at open secrets.org.
I don�t know about you but I think that�s a hefty chunk of change! No wonder he was quick to continue the Wall Street bailout. He was only paying back the favor to these same firms.
The Federal Reserve corruption is more alive today than ever. In Washington, Obama has an economic team packed with Wall Street wonders, ex Federal Reserve members and other banksters. They�re making sure your tax dollars are working for them.
� Be fair to yourself . Not only beginner level players have the tendency of explaining their mistakes to themselves but also those who have played for a longer time explain their wrong decisions with a lack of luck or weak player who had not understood their tricks. It is however important to honestly confess your own mistakes before you and used them to learn the craft of poker.
� Play your game-Seeing in action such players as Tom Dwan or Phil Ivey will for sure touch your imagination. Let�s remember that they are the greatest poker stars, and we have just started our career. Let�s play what we can do best and not monkey the tricks peeped from the best.
� There is life outside poker. If we are at the initial stage of poker fascination it is easy for an excess and playing just for revenge. We should remember that when we are tired or our head is webbed with different problems , it would be better to meet our friends , see a film or go out for a pint of beer, instead of loosing our money in front of the screen.
� You should know when you�ve got it enough-this point is connected with the previous one. If during the session after a few bad beats were drive into tilt then let�s finish the game and have a short break and not try to forcibly compensate our losses. It is one of the main reasons of high losses and this we would like to avoid for sure
The decision for buying one does not matter. It is something that everybody should think about - but most individuals do not really buy one because they do not know how much they should be spending on one. As we all know there are dozens of unique types of air purifiers that you can use and this makes the price range very broad.
The price tag of one of these air purifiers will count on numerous things that include:
What brand you buy from
What type of purifier you wish to have
Does it use an air filter
What size it is
All of these are very essential to consider and your answers to them will greatly influence your decision and help you to narrow down the options and how much you want to spend. These might cost as little as $200 or as high as $1,000.
If you are someone who hurts from loads of allergies or is influenced by the weather and even dust then you need to think about spending more money to get something that operates to take away absolutely everything from the air. There are a couple that will only remove dust and allergens - but will not take away the detrimental pollutants. One brand name that is great at taking care of people who desire their air cleansed thoroughly are Living Air Purifiers.
If you want something that is easy to take care of then you should consider one that does not use an air filter. These models will save you money after long periods of time because you will not have to spend hundreds of dollars each year to interchange the filter.

Solar energy is the most versatile of all the Renewable Sustainable Energies that we know of. It is a universal source available over most of the earth in abundance. The sun�s energy is harnessed through a series of solar panels that are generally place on the rooftop. These panels convert the heat radiations into electricity. The solar power concept is most commonly used in homes and in some power stations as well.
Wind is another one of the Renewable Sustainable Energies that is quite popular. This energy is harnessed through the help of windmills. Although windmills have originally been used to pump out water as in the Netherlands, they are now used on places like farms to generate power.
Tidal energy or wave energy is the only one of the Renewable Sustainable Energies that cannot be harnessed anywhere as the prerequisite for these is a water body with a tidal current that is strong enough. This is one of the very popular Renewable Energy Sources Canada, because of the presence of glacial ice that melts during the summer. Tidal energy is created by placing large turbines in the path of the current or the tide.
How then can a company that has a legitimate, creative idea for an email advertisement series avoid getting caught in the spam trap? There are three key steps good copywriters and marketers can take to set themselves apart and boost their message open rates.
A Cautionary Tale
Important campaigns usually succeed or fail well before they're ever launched - in the planning stages. Consider a recent and already infamous Intel advertisement. The advertisement had athletic sprinters lined up to race, a reasonable attempt to link the company's processors to speedy performance. It failed because these athletes all were African American gentlemen who appeared to be bowing to a tall, smug looking Caucasian businessman. This was a clear breakdown in the planning process. No one asked the fairly obvious question 'What could be wrong with this image?' Intel pulled the advertisement and publicly admitted the mistake, but the image remains as a vivid reminder that cutting corners in the planning phase can bruise your brand.
1. Lay the Groundwork
The lesson here is that simple research, like enlisting a test audience, can mean the difference between hit and miss. The same holds true for email advertising campaigns - research is vital. Just because you can send out 100,000 generic emails within a few minutes of setting up a campaign idea does not in any way mean you should. Strategic planning up front not only can save you time in the long run, it also can secure your results.
2. Know the Audience
Previous articles have referred to the phenomenon of audience-influenced brands. This is particularly true now that the Web has become so extensively accessible. People's opinions can catch public attention almost instantly, and word of mouth can spread across the entire world in a heartbeat. Whether or not you want the audience to control your brand is irrelevant; it can and will happen of its own accord, and you should be prepared for it.
Have you taken the time to really get to know your audience? There are thousands of Internet communities dedicated to every conceivable topic, hobby, interest, or fad and your product very likely falls into one of these. Visit these user forums, find out what people are saying, what needs are not being met, and what the general opinion is. Also, don't just mine for information, but participate in the discussion. Engage and learn how people think and what they want to know about things. This isn't a chore; this is an opportunity that businesses have rarely had in the past, a goldmine of information for any marketer to tap.
3. Kick up the Content
In many cases, businesses fail to treat email as a legitimate medium, although they're eager to take advantage of it. Disregarding outright spam, even some well-intentioned 'campaigns' amount to little more than a poorly organized message presented in a jumble of mismatched colors rather than a serious attempt at focused communication.
The content of the email has to be strong. The first line has to provide a good hook, the body has to get the core, essential details out quickly and effectively, and the end has to have a call to action (be it a purchase or a website visit). Take the time to craft a message that shows you respect the reader's intelligence, and put as much thought into the structure of the email as you would any other example of your best writing.
Once these three key elements are in place, consider a test circulation of your campaign before officially kicking it off. There is very little substitute for getting another pair of eyes to look over your hard work. They can spot unfortunate mistakes, call attention to strong points, and help you refine the process before the message is irrevocably out on the Web.

Aromatherapy and essential oils have become very important in the fight against fatigue and helping to revive the body’s energy. Most people can agree that the body has a distinctive and important flow of energy that keeps it going. Some people take this fact a little farther and believe that the energy comes together at certain spots or intersections in the body and crisscrosses the energy. This phenomenon is referred to as the chakras and many people believe they are very important to the quality of life. There are 7 different and distinctive chakras in the body. Each chakra corresponds to a different body area or part and each is responsible for a set of emotions or feelings that help to contribute to the flow of the energy in the body as well as keep it balanced. The practice of aromatherapy helps to increase this positive energy through the usage of essential oils which lead to an increase in the energy.
There are hundreds of essential oils and each one has a distinctive purpose. Essential oils are natural products made out of plants and some of the plants used are known for certain characteristics which will help to lead to the purpose of the resulting essential oil. Certain essential oils when applied to the body generally immediately give the body a calming feeling. Such as Lavender if it is used in the correct dosage.

Always read the instructions to see how the essential oil should be used some oils may require more drops than other. Essential oils work great in small dosages.

The answer to this question and all other worries that business owners have is to make use of mini storage steel buildings. With these, you can now customize the kind of storage facility that you want to build � whether it is the size of a small room or like a shipyard! Every business is unique with its own inventory requirements. This means you should have the freedom and flexibility to choose the right kind of storage. With steel storage facilities, you can design the way you want for exactly your own needs.
A steel storage building has several other advantages too. For example, steel is fireproof, which means your inventories inside are completely safe and secure. This also reduces your insurance cost. In addition, steel buildings are all weather proof, which keeps them safe from storms and cyclones and other furies of nature.
On the cost front, small businesses need to be economical. By giving you the choice for the size and dimensions of your steel storage facility, you are already saving a huge deal. In addition, there are very little or no labor costs involved when you opt for prefab steel buildings. Also, since steel is one of the strongest and toughest building materials, you will need only a minimal quantity of material for construction. This again saves greatly on the cost front. In a nutshell, steel storage facilities are the perfect solution to all your storage needs.
The short term benefits of installing a seemingly cheaper option can prove to be a disastrous long term investment once you take into consideration the costs of repairs to an inferior quality of system.
What are the key questions that need to be asked about any pallet racking solution prior to awarding the contract?
1. Can the pallet racking be relocated and reconfigured at a future date?
You can't plan for the future which is why you need to build in the ability to move any storage system. Ideally you should be able to easily and economically add to frame height, change frame depths and add different accessories.
2. Can it be used for different solutions?
What you want to use racking for today may be different tomorrow as your company grows. By recognising potential growth and developments you can design in the potential to modify the existing design to store different products or indeed convert the solution to high density solutions such as pushback or live storage.
3. Does the pallet racking system feature safety components such as barriers and upright protectors?
By designing these elements into the system at the start, you can not only ensure the operating tolerances are maintained, but more importantly the modest additional investment will reap significant long term returns by reducing the risk of damage, collapse or injury and the significant financial consequences this may cause your organisation.
4. Have the loads been calculated and displayed using approved SEMA signs?
The racking solution you install should last you for many years to come and as a result may outlast many personnel within the company. It is therefore vital that the capacity of the system is clearly displayed to provide user guidelines, prevent overloading and potential structural damage.
5. Are additional components for repair or extension to the racking system (economically) available?
In our experience a storage system is never a one off purchase. Whether you are looking to incorporate additional bays, or beam levels, you need to be able to get your hands on these without being held to ransom.
Unfortunately we are seeing some suppliers selling what is cheapest this week regardless of its future availability and we know that many smaller companies have changed their suppliers several times in the same number of years in an attempt to capitalise on seemingly improved deals.
Ensure the proposed pallet racking is an established range in the market; that they offer some of advanced options and accessories and ask if it is capable of being integrated with any existing systems in the market.
6. When repair work is required what is the likely cost of labour and equipment?
Getting the components is one thing but you must also take into consideration the additional costs such as the time involved in making the repairs and the cost of equipment such as mobile elevated work platforms (MEWP�s) which are required.
It is vital that you optimise the design to make repairs as quick and as economical as possible to ensure any repair is carried out at minimum cost and most importantly minimum disruption to your business.
7. Does the design strike the balance between capacity, floor space and budget?
It is important that you explore all the options available to you before you decide on the right solution for your organisation; however it is vital that you achieve the right balance of capacity, floor space and budget.
This can only be achieved by a thorough site assessment by an experienced project manager who not only understands the products being stored but more importantly appreciates the commercial objectives that you are trying to achieve such as freeing up valuable space for other uses or reducing travel and picking times.
8. Does it improve the efficiency of the work space
Any business investment must deliver a return and your racking solution is no different. To ensure you�re racking continues to provide you with long term benefits, it must take into consideration the existing work patterns, accessibility requirements, picking times and travel routes.
Any changes to the day to day operations must demonstrate measurable improvements and not sacrifice performance over capacity.

As you know, there is a huge variety of elitemakeup foundations on the market. Makeup brands are improving their formulas everyday and offering a bigger choice, which makes our task even more complicated. When choosing a foundation it�s important to know what type of skin you have, since there are specific products for each type of skin. You can find foundations that are fluid, in powder, compact, with matt effect, brightening, oil free, etc.
It�s important to moisturize the skin before applying foundation. This will nourish the skin and make the makeup last much longer.
If you�ve got dry skin
A fluid, nourishing and creamy foundation is ideal, especially if you�re looking for a foundation that covers the skin. Compact makeup that turns fluid when you apply it is best for this skin-type. You can also use foundation on a stick or bar. You apply both using a sponge and the degree of coverage will depend on how many layers you apply.
For oily skin
It�s important to choose an oil-free fluid with a matt finish. You can also use colored face powder made up of 80% powder and 20% fluid. This kind covers the skin easily and, while the powder eliminates excess shine, its nutrients moisturize dry areas. Apply these in circular movements using a wide brush.
For mixed skin
I recommend a foundation combining fluid and powder. It moisturizes skin while eliminating shine, due to the powder�s velvety effect.
It�s important to keep up to date with the latest releases and know what type of skin they�re suitable for.
Foundations in mousse have an aired creamy texture that�s easy to apply and is appropriate for oily and mixed skin, since it turns to powder when it comes in contact with the skin.
Sprays are a good option for skins that do only need a slight coverage. They create a natural finish due to the combination of hot and cold. To use this foundation you need a bit of practice, since it�s easy to get dirty when applying them.
Brightening foundations create a radiant effect. Many of them combine fluid with iridiscent pigments, silver and red tones. It gives the skin a unique glow. You can apply them to the whole face or only to specific areas to create a certain light effect.
Those looking exclusively to unify their skin tone and not wanting to look made up as they usually do not use foundation, will find colored moisturizing creams very useful. You can use them on their own or as a pre-foundation to your usual fluid. They will brighten the face and make foundation last much longer.
You can also find some foundations which combine color and treatment. They can be moisturizing creams with sunscreen and with a lifting or tensing effect. Most of them are for dry or mixed skin.
I hope my elite make up advice has been useful and that you can put it into practice when choosing the foundation suitable to your skin type. I�ll see you in the next issue, with more make up tips.

Below is a guide to help you narrow down areas by price range. These values are intended for houses. Of course, you can get condos or townhouses in areas that you wouldn�t otherwise be able to afford. However, for simplicity�s sake, this guide is for buyers considering houses only!
Under $150,000: The best areas for houses in this price range are Summerville, North Charleston, Hanahan, and Goose Creek. If the quality of public schools is important to you, Summerville is the best option because it has some of the best public schools in all of Charleston.
$150,000-200,000: Although it is possible in this price range to find houses in areas closer to downtown and the beaches (Mt. Pleasant, James Island, West Ashley), you will find that most of these houses are simply not very livable. They may look great in the listings online, but they need more work and repairs than most buyers in this price range can afford. And, the resale for these areas is less than ideal. So, I would recommend still looking in the Summerville, Goose Creek, North Charleston, and Hanahan areas.
$200,000-250,000: You�ll find good starter homes in areas like Mt. Pleasant, James Island, Johns Island, and West Ashley. Mt. Pleasant has excellent public schools, and James Island is also quite good for schools. Both of these areas are also the closest to downtown Charleston and the beaches. West Ashley and Johns Island are slightly more affordable, and they�re still a great location in the Charleston area. If you�re willing to live further out (in the Summerville, North Charleston, Goose Creek section of Charleston), you will be able to find a much nicer home in this price range.
$250,000-400,000: This is an ideal price range if you are considering houses in the main Charleston County area. In James Island and Mt. Pleasant, this is the average home price, so you will find a large selection of homes for sale. In West Ashley and Johns Island, this is slightly upper priced, and you will get a little more home for the money in these more affordable areas. In the cities further inland (like Summerville, North Charleston, and Goose Creek), this price range is reaching the top of the market. So, you�ll be able to find homes overlooking golf courses and community lakes with lots of upgrades.
$400,000-600,000: Most buyers in this price range prefer Mt. Pleasant and James Island. You will even be able to get marshfront homes in the upper part of this bracket. And, of course, West Ashley and Johns Island are also good options. However, you will also find more areas available to you after you reach the $400K mark. Daniel Island and downtown Charleston have good homes in this price range, but you certainly will not be able to get waterfront or any other especially good location (since these 2 markets are more expensive). Although you will find houses in Summerville, North Charleston, and Goose Creek in this price range, you will really be at the top of the market if you buy in those areas. For resale, it would be better to consider the areas mentioned above because those markets easily support home values in this range.
$600,000-800,000: In addition to finding waterfront or fully upgraded homes in Mt. Pleasant and James Island, you will also find options on Johns Island and West Ashley. In Daniel Island and downtown Charleston, this price range is considered pretty average, so you will find nice homes in the middle of their markets. The beaches will have some houses under $800K (or you can get waterfront townhouses or condos in this price, too). Folly Beach and Isle of Palms are the most affordable beaches in Charleston, so they will be your best bets in this range. However, it would also be worth considering Wild Dunes, Seabrook Island, and Kiawah Island for that occasional house that is listed under $800K.
$800,000 plus: For resale value, it is important to be in a market that can support million dollar homes. In James Island and Mt. Pleasant, you will find the very best homes that are available in those areas. Almost all of these will be either on deep water or overlooking the Charleston Harbor. The beaches also support million dollar homes very well. In addition to Isle of Palms, Folly Beach, Wild Dunes, Kiawah, and Seabrook, you will also find homes on Sullivan�s Island. Daniel Island would also be a good investment because its strict community rules ensure that homes are well cared for. Downtown Charleston is always a good market, too. It has always been in high demand from home buyers, but only a percentage can actually afford living downtown. In this price range, however, you will find a good selection of historic homes in the most desirable neighborhoods, like South of Broad.
To the surprise of many Americans, many of the diet sodas being touted as a healthy alternative to the more popular and unhealthy, high-fructose sodas such as Pepsi and Coca-Cola are in fact just as harmful to your body and your health.
Many of us are familiar with the infamous chicken bone test -- the test in which a chicken bone was placed into a cup of Mountain Dew and disintegrated overnight into oblivion. Such decay was due in part to the phosphoric acid contained in soda which leaches calcium from your bones after every drink. Since that study, medical researchers have continuously broadcasted the harmful effects of daily soda consumption.
Overtime, drinking soda causes your body to become dehydrated due to its caffeine and sugar makeup. Instead of quenching your thirst, a can of soda actually makes you thirstier as the sugar you are ingesting acts as a diuretic of sorts. With so much bad news floating around about regular soda pop, there has been an increasing flock towards diet soda. Many Americans operate under the belief that because the can says "diet," it must be good for the body. This is a misconception that needs to be nipped in the bud.
Contrary to popular belief, research has shown that consumption of diet soda is no more beneficial to your health than the removal of regular soda. In fact, in an 8 year study performed by the University of Texas, researchers found that those individuals who made the switch to diet soft drinks increased their risk for obesity by as much as 41 percent. In some cases, soda drinkers gained more weight after switching to diet soda than before they made the switch.
So what makes diet soda so fattening and why aren't more Americans aware of this alarming fact? The answer is two-fold. One reason why Americans are not privy to the harmful effects of diet soda is due in part to the fact that diet sodas are touted as the low to no calorie alternative for your caffeine fixation. Because regular soda is high in calories, and Americans equate calories as the enemy, diet soda has reigned supreme as the alternative.
In actuality however, while diet soda may contain less calories, the artificial sweeteners in diet sodas that help give it taste also create negative hormonal responses in the your body. Such responses cause your body to crave more of sweets and even increases fat storing hormone production. As a result, instead of craving more food, your body craves more soda. Overtime, diet soda drinkers find themselves packing on more calories that they believe are due to the various foods they are eating, yet the culprit is staring them right in the face.
In the end, if you wish to decrease your intake of sugars, whether high fructose or in the form of artificial sweeteners, it is best that all soda consumption be removed from your diet and in its place should be healthy fruit drinks, or nature's best friend: water. Remember, not from a tree, the ground or occur in nature...drop it like it's hot!
The two which stand out as being impossible to cure and often impossible to treat effectively are: genital warts and genital herpes. This is due to several reasons. The first is that genital warts and genital herpes are caused by viruses and many of the others are caused by bacteria. Traditionally, a virus is much harder to kill off effectively than bacteria are.
However, even among these two viral infections, there are a number of symptoms which makes them different from one another. To begin with, they are caused by two different viruses. Genital warts are caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV). Genital herpes is caused by herpes simplex II. These two viruses have different symptoms, different ways of being transmitted and different ways of being treated.
One of the main differences between the two viruses is how they are spread. Herpes is spread through infected bodily fluids. It is most easily transmitted when the infection is in an active stage, such as when skin sores are open and weeping. Genital warts however can be transmitted through simple skin to skin contact. This can cause problems because they often occur in areas where condoms do not cover and this means that even using condoms can mean that you can still contract genital warts.
Both genital warts and genital herpes cause small sores in the genital region. However, while herpes sores come and go, genital warts will usually not disappear unless you treat them. Genital herpes begins with flu-like symptoms and a feeling of heaviness or pain in the lower abdomen. Then, small pimples will appear and will burst open, turning into weeping open sores. These will crust over in time, but can be quite painful while they are healing.
Genital warts however appear as soft raised bumps. They can be red or pink. Usually they appear in a more spread out pattern but they can also group together in clumps. They may also appear as cauliflower-like growths. Although they often are quite painless they may itch and burn. They can appear anywhere in the genital area or the anus as well. Often genital warts may be very small and hard to notice, so it is important for you to get checked out by an annual physical that includes a pap smear.
The treatment for genital warts and genital herpes is different as well. Herpes treatment includes topical creams and pills which can prevent outbreaks from taking place. It is important to use safe sexual techniques since you can spread herpes even if you are not in the middle of an active herpes outbreak.
Genital warts have several treatment options. You can have the warts surgically removed and there are also topical creams which can get rid of them. It is important for you to speak with a medical professional about how to treat them properly in order to keep from developing complications.
The ultra filtration process ensures that casein proteins do not undergo any changes of pH while being processed. The protein that is found in Micellar casein does not get denatured and holds the Biological Value 77. It is found to be of tremendous health benefits.
Micellar casein has seen much increase in its demand in the recent years as a sports supplement. The presence of high quantity and naturally occurring bioactive components; glutamine; immuno-supportive properties; and growth factors reason the popularity of Casein. The bioactive fractions that are found in the protein in abundance help in protein digestibility, muscle growth, mineral bioavailability and protein quality; all that hold crucial importance in the proper activity regime of hard-training athletes.
Since Micellar casein makes for a high anti-catabolic protein and gets released in the system gradually and effectively, it is also advised for people who are protein deficient. This is why many people prefer taking it before they sleep giving the protein ample time to get absorbed in the body while they sleep peacefully. Otherwise, it is also a great breakfast supplement to be taken before facing a strenuous day ahead. These proteins are very remarkable in the aversion of muscle breakdowns.
They are also known for promoting the process of immunity in the body along with enhancing muscle growth. Having a property to form a gel in gut of the human body and helping in steady discharges of the amino acids in the blood stream, the Micellar Casein is certainly a long-lasting anti-catabolic protein.
What is most encouraging is that the Micellar casein proteins can be accessed easily via Internet and are affordable. Ready to be procured in the easy to digest and mix powder form, Micellar Casein comes as an efficient health supplement.
cannabis tincture as pictured was medical marijuana in its purest most effective form. It was an alcohol extraction of high quality potent bud. The bud was soaked in 100 proof alcohol for weeks in darkness, and shaken regularly.
The plant matter was removed with a strainer and the tincture was ready for sale. This stuff was administered in extremely small doses because it was very potent.
It would be common to see one ounce of bud mixed with one pint of alcohol on the local drug store shelf. They used indica bud for this process and still to this day represents the peak of medical cannabis technology.

Marijuana Scientifically Proven To Reduce Stress?
When someone is all stressed out and you connect them to a waveform or EEG machine the results show what is called beta waves and this is experienced as worry or fear. When someone is in a state of well being, the machine will show what is called alpha waves. When someone smokes or ingests marijuana, the machine also responds with alpha waves.
Does this mean that marijuana actually puts you onto a good or positive vibration? Some do report laughter as a side effect of ingesting or inhaling marijuana
Now, with this information, should we all not take a little closer look at marijuana and what it can actually do for stress? When someone is stressed or fixated on a subject that they perceive as negative, marijuana allows one to readjust their mindset. In a nutshell pulling you from a bad vibe to a good vibe.
Now with these machines lowering in price as years go on, maybe we will see more of these test popping up and leaving us with physical proof and no doubt that marijuana actually does reduce stress.

If your lazy like I am but want to advertise your home business on auto-pilot but still have a cash flow come in, then this might be the most important article you have ever read. Imagine,for a moment, 6 months today you were still getting leads from marketing materials that you created a year ago without spending any more extra dollars on advertising. Well that's what I want to talk to you about today.
Yes it's true Although many entrepreneurs are experiencing success at marketing effectively online, 90% of the people who try end up failing. So what is the big difference between the ones who win and the ones who fail at advertising a home business.
Let's face it if you want to have your advertising go on auto-pilot then you have to have a formula, here's exactly what I did. I wanted to get my business in front of as many people who were interested in joining my opportunity as possible. So the first thing I did was did some keyword research on the terms that I thought people were searching for when wanting to join my business.
I saw some terms getting about 300 searches per month. What I did was create some articles around that topic and put a link to my website at the end of the article. Then the prospects who clicked on my article link would go to a capture page where I would explain how they could be successful working with me.
So that simple article system was working but I wanted to supercharge everything. So the next thing I did was make videos around those same keyword terms. Now people will know who I was and can connect with me at a different level when advertising my home business. And again I put a link on my description box to go to my capture page so I can create a relationship with my prospects and recruit them to my company.
The next robot I put in place was using an auto-responder. I put together a free training series that would educate my prospects on how they would be successful working with me, how much it will cost, and what kind of access they would have to me when they needed help advertising their home business.
Now even after a year my videos still bring in leads, my articles still bring in leads, and many of my other free advertising methods still bring in leads today while my auto-responder handles all the objections and pre-sells my prospects for me. All while I sit back and relax like the lazy marketer that I am. This is the secret to advertising your home businesses even if your on a budget.
Advertising your home business can be a rewarding experience or a hear ache. See how to dominate online right now by visiting Online MLM Marketing

Unfortunately, many men and women in our society have underdeveloped, flat, scarred, or otherwise unattractive buttocks. Transgendered and transsexual persons may also be seeking to modify their bodies to better reflect their lifestyle choices. For these and many other reasons, Americans today are enhancing the shape and contour of their buttocks using surgery in order to improve their overall body aesthetic.
This surgery may be called a �butt lift�, a �butt job�, or any of a number of other names, but all refer to surgical buttock augmentation treatment.
In most cases, buttock surgery is a means of correcting damaged on unattractive buttocks. Patients who desire firm, round, full buttocks may wish to consider implants. Buttock implant surgery adds volume and contour to the buttocks by placing implants within each cheek; each bearing within itself a spongy, gelatin-like plastic substance. To carry out the operation, the surgeon makes a small cut near the gluteal sulcus � the crease where the hind part of the thigh meets the butt cheeks � and inserts the implants. The wound is then sewn closed.
Fat transplant is another option. Known as the �Brazilian Butt Lift�, this form of buttock augmentation puts the patient�s own excess body fat to work for him or her. During the procedure, fat cells from elsewhere in the patient�s body are extracted, then transplanted into the buttocks using liposuction equipment. Fat cells are taken from various areas of the body, such as the abdomen, hips, back, or thighs, through liposuction; the fat is then inserted through small incisions into different layers of the buttocks to match the patient�s desired shape and size.
More than one session of injections may be required, depending on how much augmentation is desired by the patient, but many patients prefer fat transplant because the body�s own cells are used, thus eliminating the possibility of tissue rejection.
Recovery time after each of these procedures is small. Patients are able to sit down immediately after surgery and can return to work in about one week. Transplant patients will need to wear a compression garment for up to two weeks after the procedure. Postoperative massage and ultrasound treatments may also be recommended.
Certain risks come with all types of surgery. Those who have had buttock augmentation surgery face the risk of secondary infections, swelling, tenderness, stiffness and other complications of surgery. Serious side effects are rare, however.
Buttock augmentation is no laughing matter. It a serious medical procedure requiring serious consideration. Prospective buttock augmentation patients should determine their goals, then discuss the options all the options with your surgeon.

Many bemoan the fact that as we age our eyesight becomes poorer, but few relate this to the simple truth the eye is supported by muscles just like any other part of the body. If you do not keep them in shape they will become weaker; the muscles will lose their tone and become rigid, causing decreased elasticity in the eye which can lead to sight loss. Exercising your eyes regularly will keep them healthy and relieve eyestrain.
The increase in computer-related jobs and free time spent online has also added to many eye problems, which can be greatly aided by keeping your eyes refreshed and exercised. Eye exercises are physical therapy not just for the eye, but also the brain, due to the optic nerve which connects them both. Relieving eye tension will also ease up on your brain strain, in turn, relaxing your entire body.
The ciliary muscles of the eye tense up when we focus on nearby objects, and relax when we focus further away. Below are some exercises you can practice to not only keep your eyes healthy as you grow older, but may also improve poor vision for those already relying upon contacts or eyeglasses.
1. Sit in a chair, posture erect, spine straight, body relaxed. Keeping your body motionless while moving only your eyes, find a point you can focus on in front of you without straining and move your eyes from your lap, to this point, and back again. Repeat five times.
2. Close your eyes, placing your hands tightly over each eye so that no light gets in. The heels of your palms should rest upon your cheekbones. Breathe deeply. This relieves eye tension and strain and is very relaxing. Practice for three to five minutes.
3. Move eyes slowly upwards as far as you can, then downwards. Repeat five times. Blink rapidly to relax the eye muscles. Repeat this exercise, only now moving your eyes slowly from left to right and back again.
4. Gently squeeze eyes shut for three seconds, then open them and repeat five times. This is an excellent exercise to relieve computer strain on the eyes by stimulating the tear ducts.
5. Hold an object in front of you at arm�s length, waving it slowly back and forth in a figure eight while following it with your eyes. Do this for approximately 10-15 seconds. This helps stimulate the nutrient flow within the eye while improving eye coordination.
6. This exercise helps strengthen the iris and is best done at night, in front of a bright lamp. With no other lights on in the room, sit in a comfortable position facing the lamp with your eyes closed, switching the lamp on and off in time to your slow, relaxed breathing.
7. Focus on a small object at arm's length, such as a pencil, inhale, then move it slowly in to touch the tip of your nose. Exhale, keeping your eyes on the pencil and move it slowly back out again. Repeat three times.
8. This is a fabulous method to relieve eye tension for those working in offices with access to windows. Focus on a distant object outside for eight seconds then slowly refocus your eyes on an object close at hand. Repeat three times, and often during the day, at least once per hour.

Many of them reported that they had suffered from impotence or premature ejaculation. While these disorders often can be attributed to external factors, such as alcohol, nerves or peer pressure � especially on the first sexual experience - the research did confirm that genetic factors also played a part.
The research confirms previous studies performed in Holland which suggested that men who experience premature ejaculation may share a specific gene, responsible for the production of serotonin, a hormone that regulates mood. The Finnish study seems to support the findings of the Dutch researchers.
Since it was first accepted as a medical problem, doctors have struggled to understand what causes erectile dysfunction. As with all disorders, the hope is that the more we understand the better the treatments we can develop. At the end of May, tributes were paid to the scientist who took the first steps in developing a cure for the problem, after Robert Furchgott died aged 92. Mr Furchgott in 1998 won a Nobel Prize for the work he did to show that nitric oxide played an important role in cardiovascular system. This work was used as a base for the development by drugs company Pfizer of the first erectile dysfunction medication Viagra in 1998.
Though its status as the �first� mean many men automatically buy Viagra over any other alternatives, in the years since it first hit the shelves other companies have produced their own versions of the drug. Bayer created Levitra, approved for sale in 2003, but it failed to really make its mark. In the same year, Eli Lilly launched Cialis, which has proved to be Viagra�s biggest competition. While the three drugs are all roughly as effective as each other, Cialis gained a head-start due to its longer-lasting effect times, allowing men to achieve an erection for up to 36 hours after taking a tablet.
As the patents on the medications are due to run out soon, the pharmaceutical companies are very worried that generic versions of the medications will eat into their profit margins, as generic sellers are likely to dramatically slash prices. All are interested in being the first to develop the next generation of erectile dysfunction medication, something to mark them out from their competitors. Some kind of gene-based treatment might be just the thing, but promising though the Finnish study is, we are still a long way from seeing a treatment developed based on the information uncovered.

There is another question that is very common from a fresher who is just thinking of gambling just for refreshment � Is gambling online considered legal?
Well, that is not a difficult but contradictory question. The reason is the legal factor varies from state to state country to country. For instance, in USA gambling in a land based casino or gambling online is considered illegal. But there are some sites that allow US citizens to gamble without restrictions.
If you directly place the question (Is gambling online considered legal?) to any government body, then the answer you can expect is that they are on the way of studying the matter, yet they did not come to any conclusion.
In UK , you can get open opportunities to gamble without any legal restrictions. British citizens have every right to bet online or gamble online freely.
Lottery is also a form of gambling. But you will find that state lotteries and other lotteries authorized by the government are openly promoted and played. Sometimes small government bodies are hosting and operating the lottery game show by themselves and also accepting bets from foreign countries.
You can find several instances where local patrons have been penalized or banned for establishing a lottery business that is similar to Lottos. But you really don't have to worry about the legal aspects of an online gambling website. In the first case, these websites abide a specified code of conduct formulated by the gambling association.
The gambling websites online are generally licensed. But there are some scam sites that are not licensed because they actually have designed the site to cheat online gamblers and disappear overnight.
In a way to protect the legal factors, Internet gambling websites verify few information of visitors willing to be a member. Few eligibility criteria are like - all members should be eighteen or above, it is a must to create an online account to gamble online etc.
Some websites do not allow American citizens to play or gamble online due to the complex response of the American Government. Illinois have already banned Internet gambling. But they do gamble online for charity purpose.
Whenever you sign up to be a member of a gambling online website, check the disclaimer or agreement form to better understand the requirement. Moreover you will get a clear insight about whether you are allowed to be a member or restricted, so that you can make your decision accordingly.
Search engines have a complex ranking process which judges sights by a variety of factors including; meta-tags, relevance to the searched topic and internal and external links. Internal links are generated within the site itself to create structural strength and in turn improve its ranking in search engines. External links on the other hand are one of the most vital players in raising a sites profile as they are a key factor in how search engines judge the quality and hence the ranking of a site. As a result site promoters have undertaken an array of methods (some good, some bad) to increase the number of external links to their site.
Link Baiting is the ideal method of gaining links. The most important thing about getting a website noticed is to provide interesting or invaluable content. That's what websites are all about. They should always offer some kind of valuable information or service. Hence, if a site has some good information there is a good chance it will get noticed and users will create links to it in forums and blogs. In turn this will organically bring up the sites ranking and popularity.
On the other hand, viral advertising has sprung up as a successful way of marketing and generating links. What viral advertising has in common with good content is that it relies on others to generate its sights strength. The difference is that viral videos may have nothing to do with the sites content. They are created to be funny, entertaining or shocking in order to provoke reaction and debate from web users. These web users in turn post links which benefit the site.
Micro sites are a somewhat more controversial method of attaining links. Also known as link farming, this involves the creation of smaller orbital sites with links directed to the main site. In theory this should generate greater link strength and hence ranking for the parent site. However, search engines such as Google often pick up on and disregard these sites rendering them worthless. Furthermore it could be more prudent for companies to spend their time strengthening the content and internal linking of the main site than creating micro sites.
Alternative methods such as directory submissions can provide useful linking and improve awareness of your site. What is most important overall is to know your market and tune your site toward this. A reasonable amount of research and the use of tools such as Google Analytics will assist in assessing the proper website design and how to fine tune SEO.
By applying the right methods to promote your site and generate links you can increase traffic and improve rankings the way you want.
You can determine if you can afford the home or not by observing if you are able to pay the rent of your existing home. If you have difficulty paying your rent, then it's obvious that it would become difficult for you to pay your mortgage as well. Likewise, if you possess a bad credit history or are not working in a dependable job, then it would become difficult for you to secure the mortgage. If your budget is not much, then you should not go and make an offer on a mansion, which is in the center of the city, especially if your earning is pittance.
The next thing to be considered is the location of the home. The home which you are buying should be close to the places you visit frequently, such as your place of work, church to go on Sundays, market, shopping malls, schools for your children, hospitals, etc., which you require on a daily basis. This element would be very important because you are spending so much money buying your home, and so, you would not have enough money left for your other essential requirements, like transportation, etc., and you would not have to spend more time in the traffic. Therefore, consider a strategic location.
Then you should look out for comfort and beauty. That is, make a wish-list as to what are the things you want in your home. For example, if you need a driveway or not, if you need a fenced yard or not, etc. While buying a home, you should think on a long term based on the probable family growth, as you would be buying it for your rest of the life and not for today. You should consider comfort and beauty as you would want to be a proud owner of the home you are buying, which you won't hesitate to show-off to your lover, friends, colleagues, boss, and all the important people in your life.
Keep in mind that your home should not be gaudy as it would give an impression of being tasteless and unattractive. Therefore, look out for a simple and practical home which has simple and functional style, furniture, and fixtures. This would get you admiration from your friends, peers, bosses, etc. After considering all these minute things, you should find a good real estate agent who would help you through the whole process of buying a home from pre-qualification to signing the final paper, i.e. he should check every step and should make you understand if there are any issues or concerns.
When you are looking out for houses with your agent, try seeing yourself in that house for some time, and see if you are comfortable and happy living there because your home is supposed to be your extension, and it is a place where you find comfort and peace of mind. So, be very particular when buying a home.
