Banana Coffee Smoothie

Banana Coffee Smoothie  There are actually a lot of soy milk recipes to choose from. It all depends on your style and mood. You can choose whether or not you want to prepare something that is just a swift or you can choose another delicate dish that needs styling, patience and that oriental feeling.

My Banana Coffee Smoothie
I am very fond of drinking coffee. As we all know, it is an antioxidant, therefore it's good for the body. Every time I get to taste the bitter-sweet elixir, everything becomes a blessing. So what I am going to present is one of my favorite recipes. It's actually made of soy milk and it tastes better and not to forget healthier, compared to a regular cow's milk. The ingredients are as follows: First, we need to make our soy milk. We have to soak our beans overnight to soften it and put it out in the morning. When it is fully soaked, we can now wash it and scoop the beans into the canister. Add water up to the line indicated in the machine. Next thing is to replace the lid and secure the locks. Plug the machine and push the start button. Then we wait for the machine to grind and press the milk out of the beans.
When the soy milk is ready, let it cool. The next step is to prepare the other ingredients. We need two small frozen bananas, 1 and ½ cup of fresh soy milk, 1 container of low-fat coffee yogurt, approximately 8 oz., ¼ teaspoon of ground cinnamon and a dash nutmeg.
Combine the ingredients into a blender. The bananas need to be frozen so that the smoothie will be cold. Turn the blender on and wait for the mixture to purify. If the mixture is already smooth, that's the time to turn the blender off. Pour the mixture into glasses, this recipe can make two, and garnish it with fresh slices of banana and mint depending on your taste. I don't add sugar anymore. If you want to make it sweeter you may do so.
I hope you find my soy milk recipe with banana coffee smoothie enticing. For those coffee lovers out there, I suggest you try it. It is low fat so it can not destroy your diet, plus you get to enjoy your beloved elixir in a different level. It's a nice treat especially during the summer when the heat is overwhelming, or you can also serve it to your friends during a gathering. I'm pretty sure they will love the taste, not knowing that it's actually made from soy milk. You can even ask those people with lactose intolerance to try it. I'm pretty sure they will not get an upset stomach because as we all know soy milk has 0.0 lactose content. The children will also love it but you can use chocolate instead of coffee or try to experiment on other ingredients, they will surely enjoy making it.

Choosing Right Flooring Kitchen Tiles

Choosing Right Flooring Kitchen Tiles Kitchen tiles can make a big difference to the overall look and feel of your kitchen and for this reason you should choose the slabs that match perfectly with the design of your cooking area. There is a huge variety of slabs available in the market but you should take certain factors into considerations when shopping for the designer flooring material for your cooking area.
Price is the main concern and the first thing you need to do is to set aside a budget for kitchen renovation. By assigning a budget for the project, you can narrow your search and thus find the best slabs.
Select the right flooring material
A massive array of kitchen tiles is available in the market and each variety exceeds the other at different jobs. Home interior designers say that with creative use of the slabs one can dramatically enhance the appearance and increase the functionality of one's cooking area. You can choose vinyl slabs if you are looking for budgeted flooring material. If it is the look of the slabs that matters most for you then look no further than stone pieces. Homeowners who are interested in buying a flooring material that is both good looking and cost effective can consider ceramic slabs.
Choosing a color
Use dark color kitchen tiles because they are highly resistant to staining. Stubborn stains are less noticeable on dark colored slabs. On the other hand, white or light colored slabs can't hide even the smallest stain. If you are considering using white slabs on kitchen backsplash and worktop then be prepared for the massive cleaning work. After choosing the color, you need to determine a laying pattern. There are many patterns available on Internet and you can also find some interesting patterns on the packing of the slabs. Choose a pattern that matches well with the design of the cabinets, drawers and fixtures in your kitchen.
Shopping around
Since kitchen tiles are available on every stone and tiles stores, you won't find any hassle in shopping for these slabs. But if you can shop around then you can get quality flooring material at very affordable price. There are some online stone and tiles retailers that offer lucrative discounts on selected varieties. You can track some discount tile dealers and save some money while buying perfect slabs for your home. For laying slabs, you can hire expert masons or try do it yourself and save more money.

Soundtrack Hindi Movie 2011

Soundtrack Hindi Movie 2011 Soundtrack is an edgy, modern day portrayal of India's most prolific musician and DJ. It traces his alcohol, drug and sex fuelled meteoric rise, as he battles his internal demons and a damaging handicap.
When an album is titled Soundtrack, the least you expect is - what else but - a good soundtrack. With Midival Punditz and Karsh Kale coming together for this rather loaded album (there are 12 tracks here), one looks forward to some new age sound in the offering here. Of course there are some apprehensions as well, since Soundtrack isn't a quintessential Bollywood affair, which means experimentation could go either ways. Still, with good interest and reasonable excitement, one plays on Soundtrack.

Write your own music review of Soundtrack

Soundtrack begins with 'Symphony Of The Streets', a musical piece sans any singing involved, which starts with the sound of a train running on tracks. There are other interesting bits and pieces of seemingly live music added as well which makes it a good lounge piece.

Next to come is a song which could be one of the most straight forwarded of all when it comes to the title. Rendered with aplomb by Anushka Manchanda, it goes as 'What The F'. A club track that has good beats accompanying it and surprisingly doesn't have a 'remix version' attached to it, 'What The F' is a song with an attitude and is co-written by Dhruv Jagasia, Anushka Manchanda and Gaurav Raina.

Though Soundtrack manages to attract your attention by now, there is a downer in the form of 'Mein Chala' which has a strange choice of singer in the form of Kailash Kher. He co-composes as well as writes this song which seems like an extension of one of his philosophical/spiritual trance numbers that he has attempted in the past. Though there is a Western treatment given to the song, there isn't much in it to warrant a second listening as it gets too heavy after a point in time.

It's an all around show by Vishal Vaid as he writes, co-composes (with Karsh Kale) and sings 'Ek Manzil' (along with Khalid Alvi). This one has a non-film appeal to it and while one has to listen to the song quite carefully to understand what it is eventually trying to say, the overall arrangements too are of the kind that end up lending a sad feel to it. The same sound is later used to create another musical piece which is titled 'The Soundtrack Theme' and comes towards the end of the album.

The album also incorporates a couple of old Bollywood tracks in the form of 'Ruk Jaana Nahin' and 'Yeh Jeevan Hai'. Surprisingly, none of them manage to add much value to the album and seem to have been picked out of one of those average sounding cover version albums that was a trend during the late 90s/early 2000s. While 'Ruk Jaana Nahin' is sung again by Suraj Jagan and doesn't make you really fall in love with it, 'Yeh Jeevan Hai' by Malini Awasthy belongs to quick skip variety as it is difficult to listen to it even once in entirety.

Thankfully, there is something to look forward to in Soundtrack all over again with Ankur Tewari playing a triple role of composer/lyricist/singer for 'Jannat'. Best track of the album which belongs to soft rock mode and is the most enjoyable of all, 'Jannat' is the kind of song that one was always expecting in Soundtrack to begin with.

Unfortunately, this excitement is short lived with Papon composed and sung 'Banao' turning out to be weird more than anything else. Leave aside the fact that the overall treatment of the song is hardly appealing; one can't even fathom what it is eventually trying to say. A slow paced number, it tries to be cool and contemporary but only ends up making you look the other way. He makes an added contribution with 'Naina Laagey' which has a classical feel to it and thankfully turns out to be better than 'Banao'. Still, this co-composition with Midival Punditz doesn't quite make you go wow as you move ahead in the album.

After 'Ek Manzil', Vishal Vaid returns with 'Fakira' where Midival Punditz and Karsh Kale join him in the composition department. Belonging to the same genre as the kind of songs that were once in vogue when Feroz Khan made films like Qurbani and Jaanbaaz, 'Fakira' with added vocals by Aslam Parvez manages to cover some distance but just about. With a trance feel to it, appeal of 'Fakira' is restricted to a selected play in clubs.

Last to arrive is 'Atomizer' which has the kind of sound which is associated with Quentin Tarantino movies though with somewhat lesser verve to it. Still, it does manage to excite to some extent at the least as Gaurav Raina and Karsh Kale come together with Midival Punditz for this dance number. Karsh Kale is the common element in music, lyrics and vocals department while Tapan Raj adds on to little lyrics that one hears in this track.


Soundtrack doesn't quite turn out to be an album that it could have been. Now that's sad because with Midival Punditz and Karsh Kale at the helm of affairs, one expected something that was really cutting edge and also to a good extent commercial. However, what one ends up hearing in Soundtrack are barely a couple of numbers that actually end up staying with you for a while at the least.

Know About Water Filter Systems

Know About Water Filter Systems Many of us live in areas where the water quality is not as good as we'd like; in some cases long-term exposure to contaminants in public or private water systems can be hazardous to your health. Fortunately there are many different water filter systems on the market, ranging from the relatively inexpensive to the very pricey whole-house systems. Given the importance of the issue and the potential confusion in having so many choices, it is worthwhile to understand better the main options.

In addition to studying the different water filter systems, it might not be a bad idea to obtain a copy of the water quality report issued by your city or county. Not all areas have these, and you might need to make a phone call or visit to your water agency for this information. If your water quality is pretty good, you may not want to spend on a whole-house water filter system, for example, but may just want a filtered pitcher for drinking water.

In short, the main water filter types are summarized below.

Filtered pitchers you can refill from the sink and place in your refrigerator. These usually include a charcoal filter element that you change out a couple of times annually. The cost is probably around $20 to $30 for the pitcher; each replacement filter cartridge is a few bucks.

A variation of the pitcher is the Berkey water filter system, which provides almost four gallons per hour in a setup that looks a bit like a cross between a large coffeemaker and a bottled water dispenser like you'd get from Sparkletts or Arrowhead waters. This system can run up to $300 or more but is amazingly effective at filtering out unwanted contaminants; it reportedly can remove food coloring from water, not that you'd typically be testing it that way. This is better suited for situations where you don't mind manually adding water, especially in rural or camping situations.

Inline filter cartridges are another water filter systems option. Often these come in arrays of different filter elements designed to remove specific substances. The cost might be around a couple hundred dollars, depending on capacity and what types of filtering you need to do (check that water quality report). These may be placed in the water line leading to the kitchen sink, for example, to provide filtered water for cooking and drinking.

Whole house filtering systems can cost multiple thousands of dollars and are installed on the main line coming into the house (some even treat water used for irrigation of landscaping, depending on your water quality) and therefore must handle a higher capacity than the inline cartridge filter assemblies. Some of the whole house systems have the ability to flush the contaminants from the filter material, thereby extending the life of the filter. These might be combined with water softening systems.

The highest level of treatment comes from the reverse osmosis water filter system. Originally used in military vessels to make drinking water from seawater, modern systems are generally affordable, although the cost per gallon can run a lot higher than filtered water (but cheaper than buying bottled water). The water is forced under pressure through a membrane that has extremely small pores. Consequently this filtering method is particularly effective. A typical reverse osmosis system will include conventional filters to remove the easy stuff before the water is run through the membrane. We suggest you not go with the cheapest products in this category; it is a pressure vessel and if production quality is poor, you'll have all manner of problems too soon.

Your choice of water filter system will depend on your needs (health issues?), budget and quality of water before treatment. An organized approach to selecting a filter system is the best way to ensure a wise decision.

J. M. Key is a civil engineer who has written widely about a variety of technical topics over the past 30 years. Key has discovered a lot about some of the clever new water filter systems, including information about reverse osmosis water filter systems.

Control Portion Sizes for Weight Loss

Control Portion Sizes for Weight Loss Calorie is a great way to control how much you're eating in order to lose weight. Not everyone is able to count calories at each meal and not everyone wants to count calories in the weight loss process. Can you lose weight without counting calories? Yes, you can! There are ways to control your portion sizes so that you keep your calories in check. Controlling portion sizes may not be the most accurate way to judge how many calories are in your meals but has been successful for many people in losing those extra pounds. Here's how you can control your portion sizes for weight loss.

1. Eyeball Method - This is by far one of the most common ways to measure how much food you take in. Used in major diets around the world, the eyeball method provides a way to measure portion sizes without needing any additional tools. Your protein portion should be the size and thickness of the palm of your hand. Carbohydrates in the form of starchy carbs should be the size of your clenched fist. If you opt for carbohydrates in the form of vegetables and fruit, you can measure two fistfuls. Last, for fat, you'll want to use the tip of your thumb to measure fat that you add into your meal. Easy enough? You can use this method to control portions at your home, at a restaurant and even at a party. When at a restaurant, it's a great idea to portion out your meal and put the rest into a take home box. Ask your server to bring you a doggy bag right away so you aren't tempted to eat the rest!

2. Measuring Cups - Yep, you can carry measuring cups around in your purse or laptop bag. Grab your 1 cup measuring cup and use it for protein, fat and carbohydrates. Your protein portion should be about ½ - ¾ cup. Carbohydrates of the starchy kind should equate to approximately 1 cup and carbohydrates from veggies and fruit should measure about 2 cups. Fat should be just a smidgen at the bottom of the measuring cup or about 1 tablespoon. This method may provide a bit more structure as you can actually measure out amounts. Some people may or may not want to tote around a few measuring cups though.

3. Portion Control Gadget - The Meal Measure gadget is a tool that you can actually put on your plate to fill each section with the perfect amount of protein and different types of carbohydrates. A little bit more controlled, this option offers a plate size tool that is great for home use. You may or may not want to tote this bad boy to a restaurant - your choice. Either way, this is an excellent source to keep your portions under control.

4. Use Smaller Plates - Smaller plates make portions look bigger. Sometimes this weight loss game is one that involves tricking yourself into believing that you're taking in more than you actually are. It gives the mind a little bit of satisfaction. Instead of using full dinner plates, use a few smaller plates for your meals. Side dishes and saucers make great portion control tools. Use a saucer for protein and carbohydrates like bread or pasta. Use a side dish plate or salad plate for salads and veggies and get your teaspoon or tablespoon out for fat like olive oil or canola oil. This method is great because there is no need to buy any extra tools and most restaurants won't mind bringing you a few extra dishes.

Measuring what you take in can be easy and convenient. It's important to truly stick to the portion sizes listed above or you can easily find yourself eating too much again. Once you get yourself in the groove of eating the correct amounts, you'll find it hard to eat much more than that. Pick one method above and stick with it for at least 6 weeks to determine how it works for you. If you're not seeing the results that you want, you may want to reel your portions in a little more or try counting those calories to get the success you're looking for.

Build Your Own Classic Car

Build Your Own Classic Car There has never been a better time to build a muscle car project. The availability of aftermarket parts, crate motors, disc brake kits and other upgrades make almost anything possible. The other plus is the relative low cost of these parts. One can literally start with a bare shell and build a complete top notch car using aftermarket/new parts exclusively. The sky's the limit!!

Another plus with these older era rigs is the simplicity of the cars themselves. They are much easier to work on or build than the newer stuff. No emissions, electronic fuel injection, abs brakes, air bags or any other advanced systems that require extensive specialized training. All the non-sense is outta the way!!

With sites like eBay and Craigslist, there are tons of sources to find solid project cars. You can find just about any make/model imaginable without a lot of effort.

Choosing A Make and Model:

One of the coolest aspects of this whole car building business is choosing your project. You may want to build a numbers matching 100% correct car and re-create a piece of automotive history, or you may want to get an old "mongrel" for cheap and play the creative angle to build something unique. Cost is a big factor here, a highly sought after numbers matching rig is gonna be much more expensive to acquire and build than an old "grocery getter", but both have advantages.

Comparatively, a 1969 RS/SS numbers matching Camaro is gonna fetch top dollar if done well, if being at the top of the food chain is important to you. The same 1969 Camaro with a puny 327/powergide that was never anything more than a basic model is obviously going to cost less initially and be easier to find than the "top dog".

I think the lower model is more fun to build because the sky's the limit. It was never anything special to begin with, so it's really a blank canvas that can be cloned or modified with any crazy mods/upgrades. The engine, tranny, color, pretty much any variable is possible. You really can't do that with an advanced model without de-valuing it.

Wheelin' and Dealin':

There are running, driving cars that need a little tlc, or there are absolute basket cases out there that can be had for cheap. It depends on the amount of ambition you have. I prefer the basket cases for lots of reasons.

The main reason is there are lots of 'em laying around. Lots of guys start these projects with a lot of enthusiasm, but eventually get in over their heads. They don't have the money or the expertise to see the project through to the end, and it becomes a nightmare. It's not unusual to find projects that come with tons of new parts and killer stuff that cost a small fortune, and now the owner just wants it all gone. If a car on jackstands in someones garage disassembled in a billion little pieces doesn't scare you, there are very good deals out there for you.

Assessing The Condition:

The number one thing i look at when assessing any project is structural condition. Look at the frame rails, suspension mounts, crossmembers etc. for damage or rot. Measure the frame diagonally to be sure the frame isn't crooked. Measure from the cowl area to the outer corner of the radiator support to ensure it's dimensionally correct. It doesn't have to measure "dead-nuts" on, but if there's obvious heavy damage you should find it early.

The good news is that any possible damage is fixable! Just because there is a 2 inch square hole rusted through the rear frame rail doesn't mean the car should go to the crusher!! If fact, the more problems you find are just ammunition you can use to get a lower purchase price. DON'T BE AFRAID OF DAMAGE/RUST! It's all fixable.

Look at door hinges and latches. Window regulators. Dashboard wiring. Is the fuel tank dented? Is all the door glass tinted the same? Has someone hacked up the car in any way to do some freaky custom stuff? Are all the nuts/bolts/fasteners there? Brackets? These are often overlooked details that can be a royal pain to deal with later.

It should go without saying to be sure the title is clear. Previously wrecked cars can be re-titled as "salvage" vehicles. This doesn't mean the car is really damaged beyond repair, it means that the insurance company determined that the cost to repair the car at the time of the damage/accident exceeded the value, so it was "totalled". For example if you owned a 1967 Dodge Dart in that was damaged in 1981, it wouldn't take much damage to exceed "book value" on what was at that time a run-of-the-mill grocery getter.

This affects re-sale value more than anything else, it is a mild deterrent from buying the car, but again, it's leverage to negotiate. If you never plan to sell the car, re-sale value wouldn't be an issue.

Practical Thoughts:

It's very possible to spend years looking for a "perfect project". The problem with that type of conservative thinking is that you'll never find anything "perfect". At some point, you have to stop picking every prospective car to death and jump into the game. For example, is a carved up dashboard really going to be the difference in a successful build and a life altering nightmare? It doesn't take long on any project to find surprises, dealing with them without catastrophising them is the difference in cars that get finished and old rustbuckets on jackstands. A finished car with flaws is worth more than a car that'll be perfect someday. There's an old saying in business: At some point it is necessary to shoot the engineers and begin production.

Calculating The Cost To Finish The Build:

This is where most would-be projects go wrong. You should have a clear idea of what it's all gonna cost before you even look at a car. The bad news is these projects can get out of control really quick if you're not careful. The good news is there are lots of good sources for parts, and catalogs to job-cost the project.

A good first time project would be to just re-condition an old rig without a lot of upgrades. You can expand your skills with really super trick stuff after a few builds. It doesn't take long before you'll be able to build about anything you want.

Here's an example of a basic budget for a simple recondition project:

Initial purchase: $4000

Sheetmetal/body parts: $350

Paint/body materials: $800

Rebuild brakes: $175

Rebuilt engine/longblock: $1000

Engine add-ons: $1350

(headers, holley carb, HEI ignition,

trick valve covers, etc.)

Drivetrain upgrades: $300

(u-joints, tranny cooler, steering

linkage, etc)

Bumpers/trim mouldings: $1000

Windshield: $135

Interior Kit: $800

Tires/Wheels: $1200

Misc surprises: $1000

Est cost to build: $12,110


Building these cars is a real kick, there is nothing like rescuing an old car with your own hands. The only way to learn to do this is to just get a project and go for it. The good news is it's not that difficult. A willingness to get your hands dirty goes a lot further than high mechanical ability. Someone with basic mechanical aptitude can certainly build a musclecar.

Understanding Triglycerides Cholesterol

Understanding Triglycerides Cholesterol Triglycerides are the liquid form in which most fat exists both in food and in the body. They can also be found in the blood stream. They are carried through the blood stream to various parts of the body. Most fat in the body is stored as triglycerides which is stored for use as energy. Having triglycerides is important for good health, but too many can result in heart disease.

Eating too many saturated fats or refined carbohydrates can elevate triglycerides in the body. Most triglycerides are obtained from food or are synthesized by the liver. Triglycerides are one of the three major sources of metabolic fuel for the body. The others are carbohydrates and proteins.

Having too many triglycerides in the body is known as hypertriglyceridemia and is commonly associated with atherosclerosis.

To avoid triglycerides you should avoid food with simple sugars, alcohol and saturated fats. To help the body maintain a normal level of triglycerides increasing physical activity and taking fish oil or flax seed oil has shown to be beneficial.

Cholesterol is also needed by the body, but only in the correct amounts. Cholesterol is a waxy substance that waterproofs cells and many other things in the body. LDL or Low Density Lipoprotein is considered the bad cholesterol where high amounts is correlated with disease. 160mg and up is considered too high. HDL or High Density Lipoprotein is considered the good cholesterol. Keeping this type higher helps your body avoid the bad cholesterol and helps to keep you healthier. 40mg or lower is considered too low.

Research has shown that increasing aerobic exercise, losing weight, avoiding smoking, cutting out trans fats and saturated fats, increasing monounsaturated fats in the diet and fiber helps to increase the HDL or good cholesterol in the body. This also helps to lower the LDL or bad cholesterol helping to avoid heart disease and keeping you healthy.

Total cholesterol is LDL plus HDL and one fifth of triglycerides. Research shows that it is best to keep this level below 200. Borderline is considered to be around 200 to 239; anything over 240 is considered to be high.

Statin drugs have been shown to reduce bad cholesterol in the body. However, Statin drugs have been linked to serious side effects such as muscle inflammation and injury. Some people use Red Yeast Rice which is a natural statin and supplement. It has been used in China since 800 A.D. The dosage is 1200mg twice daily.

Internet Marketing Education

Internet Marketing Education Most of today's successful online marketers do not have any formal Internet marketing education. They had all learned the ropes on their own, or through mentors who are experts in their online business specialties. Most of them had started without any investments at all yet have made good. These days, there are now schools offering courses (and award degrees) on Internet marketing. Internet marketing education has now gone on to a new level.

Lately, veteran marketers are now investing on themselves and their people by sponsoring and taking these courses. The main reason, of course, is simply to invest on growth and more knowledge in anticipation of better business and, ultimately, better income.

More options

Today, aside from these formal lessons, getting an Internet marketing education can be had in some other ways that are just as good, depending on your passion for learning. First on the list would be Internet marketing books and e-books.

The next option would be the good old mentor-student arrangement. As of today, there are now very good mentors that can give you the best set of lessons all about the Internet and doing business in it. Successful mentors can both work in groups or can offer one on one coaching.

Other programs

There are now groups and clubs with paid memberships for you to avail programs that can help. These include market research, templates, scripts and other Internet-related information and other data for your business.

There are also courses, either online or offline, where you can further your marketing knowledge. These include seminars and workshops, webinars, and live instructional lesson. They are all there to teach you how to move up in your present Internet business model.

Other trade tools

There are others who take some extra initiatives in expanding their present knowledge. Educating yourself on the ramifications of the Internet, online business and their other important aspects are taken care of by getting your hands on available software and specialized websites.

There are many available tools you can invest in to help you expand, grow, or better manage your online business. Consider the best methods that will move you forward with your Internet marketing education.


You increase your knowledge on themes to improve your appeal and that of your business and products to your customers. There are also tools to help you manage your mailing lists, help you reach more customers and other related things.

You can also begin your lessons by having a book or two on an Internet area you are not very familiar with. All these lessons are cheaper and you can pace yourself as you imbibe all the information you needed.

Major elements

For serious students who really want to embrace the Internet marketing education curricula, experts have isolated the five major elements that are the most important aspects that one needs. These include search engines, email, social networks, online magazines (and blogs) and ads.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is a means to have a site be found by a search engine. Designers tinker with such items as "tags", "metatags", and "keywords". After which, the site has greater chances of being visible during searches.


Effective email campaigns usually produce results. This is because campaigns of this sort are built on solid research using addresses gathered via legal ways.

It also provides information on the product, creates relationships with clients and businessmen. It is also a profitable way to interact with a client.

Social network marketing

This aspect of online marketing is the current flavor after having exploded into a phenomenon that it is today. Tweeting, maintaining a Facebook presence and using LinkedIn to network other professionals is the main thing these days.

Blogs podcasts and ads

Your Internet marketing education is inadequate if it does not include blogging, podcasts, and even the ads. First, there is a marketing or article clearing house. There are also online sites for freelance writers, bloggers, and podcasters who publicize their businesses (and products) for free. They are usually paid flat rates for their work or they can make money based on the number of hits they get. Finally, for a student who wants to have a full Internet marketing education, the ads is another rich area to study considering that these little line ads generate billions of dollars of business.

Home Based Business Profitable Alternatives

Home Based Business Profitable Alternatives Home-Based Business - Today's Profitable Alternatives

The growth of home-based business had developed concurrently alongside the growth of the online business. With the explosion of so much businesses and other online commerce in the Internet, businesses that are home-based also grew as well. The reason is simple: A home-based business that was known only by word of mouth before has now the whole world as its main market after going online.

The exponential growth of online business in the Internet promptly carried with it some other businesses. The dime store in the corner had become a multi-million company after it went online. This sudden rise to prosperity had included those little operations that were formerly run from the insides of private homes.

Businesses and more

There are some considerations when one talks about a home-based business. Currently, this classification lists down legitimate businesses like buying and selling merchandise.

For purposes of simplification, this grouping also includes jobs or projects undertaken by someone who works from within the confines of their own homes. The rationale is that accepting jobs is also a form of business enterprise.

In formal business terms, service can be classified as a form of merchandise which can be bought and sold as such. The following are some of the more popular ones listed and classified as items in a home-based business enterprise.

Writing articles

If you have a knack for writing, this piece is good news. This was an offshoot when companies started growing and their staff cannot keep up with the writing requirements of their sites that need new articles regularly.

These companies with sites began outsourcing the writing jobs. The rationale, again, was that hiring freelancers to do the writing frees their staff to attend to more pressing stuff.

Another discovery was the fact that outsourcing is economical than utilizing in-house services. Outsourcing had also allowed them to find genuine writing talents who are passionate writers. It did not hurt that these writers come in cheap, too.

If interested, gather a small portfolio of pieces of your writing and send them out to companies that are looking to hire. You can also check out sites like Elance, ODesk, and GetFreelancer.

After getting some favorable reputation online, you can make quite an income writing for a living. (Some sites reportedly pay up to $50 an article.)

Website building

If you are secure with your writing and you wanted to have your own site and write those items you've always wanted to, then start one. Download a free website builder (WordPress is one very good candidate), take some classes on website building and write away those articles closest to your heart.

What Makes Them Tick Entrepreneurs

What Makes Them Tick Entrepreneurs We call them entrepreneurs. They are the new breed of men and women who run their successful businesses in the most divergent, non-traditional ways that we know of from actual business enterprises and from schools. In practice, there had also been people like them in the past - business mavericks that succeeded beyond anybody's imagination. However, with the unprecedented growth of online businesses nowadays, the number of successful entrepreneurs also grew.

From what had been observed by experts (and amply demonstrated in the past) these enterprising men and women have always been unafraid of taking risks. They have an uncommon sense of creativity (financial and more). They also possess an uncanny eye in identifying the banal from the sublime when it comes to business.


Entrepreneurs are usually found to work on small niche markets in trying out their unconventional ideas. One other common characteristic they have is fondness for taking calculated risks in everything they do.

People like them are different because they actually love challenges, and they look at the risks of going into new ventures as perfect challenges. They do this because they do not have much to fear. Somehow, they must have felt or probably known most of the things in those areas they set out to conquer. Knowledge usually erases the fear factor.

Still, they can be instinctively creative in most everything they do. You can also see it in kids who run lemonade stands, sell candies to their friends or organize a garage sale. (Of course, not everyone who did businesses as kids will grow into top businessmen.)

Other characteristics

Most entrepreneurs begin their businesses solely based on their personal passion and vision. Most of them, however, (like the rest of us) sometimes stumble into new ideas by solving old problems in some innovative, unconventional ways. The difference between them and us is the speed with which they seize the opportunity.

They formulate their big business decisions on their own, sometimes founded on solid set of facts. However, a big chunk of this talented group does their decision-making mostly based on their hunches and gut feel. At other times, they do seek advice from experts and other experienced people, although these cases are rare.

More skills

These enterprising types of people have innate skills in making good plans. They seem to follow what somebody said before that "failure to plan is a plan to fail."

In the real world, many small businesses do not last long enough. The main cause is the lack of a concrete plan. Successful people look like they are unafraid to make risky decisions. It had been found that those decisions have been based on solid, sound business plans.

Negotiation skills

Entrepreneurs have been discovered to be gifted with innate negotiating skills - that of making both sides a winner. For ordinary people like us, negotiations have always been characterized as trying to get as much as we can from a deal.

These people have the talent and instincts to make everybody on the negotiating table going away satisfied. They have the knack of making everyone - colleagues, suppliers, even competitors - feel like winners.

People skills

More than the next regular guy, they also possess that special ability to delegate the right work to the right person. They can size up a person and his abilities the first time around.

This is a vital gift in the sense that in many new startup companies there is always the danger of the wrong person doing the wrong line of work. This usually happens in new setups where nobody had tested each person's capacity, aptitude and skills.

Networking /EQ

These people also know in their guts that entrepreneurship is not something you do on your own. In a society such as ours, inter-connectivity is a vital lifeline to anyone, without exception.

The idea and the methods might be your own, but working on it and making it possible still needs the support of everyone - family, friend, colleagues, and probably someone who shares his experiences.

Entrepreneurs also have that other special gift termed as emotional intelligence (EQ). In a nutshell, this is a set of skills that allows you to understand and influence the behavior of yourself and others. This is very important because as entrepreneurs you must have the varied skills of handling other people, the situation and yourself.

Rotational Core Strengthening Exercises

Rotational Core Strengthening Exercises Your core muscles involve not only your abdominal muscles, but also your lower back, pelvic floor and hip muscles. Your core strength needs to be included in your weekly strength and conditioning program because your core muscles are used in nearly every single aspect of Judo. Training your core is usually associated with sit ups, crunches and the plank but in order to more specific for Judo you must include only exercises that 'rotate' the trunk of the body. Whenever you attempt to throw your opponent you are never performing a movement like a crunch, you are rotating your opponent around. Therefore your core training should involve exercises that I like to call 'rotational core."

Rotational core exercises are important for Judo but so is upper body strength. Therefore you if can include rotational core and the upper body you are in for a winner when it comes to training your core for Judo.

Exercises that include your upper body and rotational core include:


Starting with the medicine ball at your right hip bring the ball up past your head in a 'wood-chopper' motion.

Wood-chopper Tips:

- Keep your arms slightly bent through the entire movement

- This is a great exercise to warm up your arms and shoulders

- I recommend using a ball 4-6kg.

Hanging leg raises:

- Hang from a chin up bar

- You can either have your hands facing away or towards you

- Contract your abdominals and raise your straight legs up as high as you can

- Lower and repeat

- Inhale when lowering and exhale when lifting your knees

Hanging Leg raise tips:

- If you contract you abdominals before you raise your knees it will assist you in not swinging

- If you cannot hang off the bar your fitness facility may have a harness that allows you to rest on your elbows

- You may also use a roman chair to perform this exercise

- If you have had shoulder injuries I suggest you replace this exercise

Cable Twists:

- Clasp a handle with outstretched arms

- Keep a slight bend in your elbows

- Using your core muscles rotate from the right to the left

- Once you reach your limit in terms of rotation, slowly return to the starting position

- Repeat

Cable twist tips:

- Really try to use your core muscles opposed to your arms

- Don't use too much weight as this may force you to use your arms opposed to core

- You may also use a Theraband to perform this exercise

Barbell rotations:

- Place a barbell in a corner with a heavy dumbbell on top of it

- Hold the barbell at the end

- With arms slightly bent rotate your body to the left

- Be sure to turn your feet and hips as well

- Contract your abdominals and turn to the opposite side

- Repeat for desired number of reps

Barbell rotation tips:

- Concentrate on using your abdominals, not your arms, when performing this exercise.

- This exercise is rather hard and due to the fact that a barbell is already 20 kilograms you should not have to add much more weight

Push up twists:

- Assume a pushup position

- Bring your shoulder blades together

- Contact your abdominals as you slowly begin to raise one hand above your head

- Maintain balance

- Look at where your hand is travelling as you slowly reach the top of the movement

- Return the hand to the starting position and repeat on the opposite side

Push up twist tips:

- Go slow - this exercise is a slow and control exercise.

- For added difficulty you may place your supporting hand on an unstable surface such as a Dura disc or pillow

Remember in order to train your core for Judo you must be using 'rotational core' movements besides a crunch or traditional leg raise.

Solo Judo Techniques Do at Home

Solo Judo Techniques Do at Home There are times when you are just too busy and you cannot get to Judo practice. There are plenty of solo exercises you can do at home that can improve you Judo training. These exercises include:

Mental Imagery of Uchikomi:

You may be on the bus or on the couch but there is always time to do Judo with mental imagery. Simply close your eyes and practice a few Judo techniques in your mind. Try to picture yourself entering for a throw and throwing someone. Attempt to feel your whole body moving into position while you are sitting down.
Once you are in the feel of mental imagery Uchikomi begin adding in some combinations or speed Uchikomi into the mix. This will really help you not only you getting in tune with your body but also gets you to think about each and every aspect of a throw. When I had my knee reconstruction back in 2007 I had 11 months off Judo completely. Every night in bed I would do 200 Uchikomi of Ippon Seoi Nage. Then when I came back onto the mat it was like I had never left. Id didn't lose the feel of Judo at all.

Shadow Uchikomi:

If you have enough space in the lounge room or garage then move around and attack as if you had a partner with you. Concentrate on keeping your knees bent and back straight. Try to 'feel' your throws opposed to just doing them for the sake of it. Shadow Uchikomi is great because it gets you thinking and moving like a Judo player. I highly recommend my students do shadow Uchikomi as a warm up because they can never have an excuse for not having a partner. If you are good at shadow Uchikomi you sometimes don't need a partner.


If you don't have enough room to do some shadow Uchikomi then walk up and down the hallway attacking with Ashiwaza techniques such as De Ashi Barai, Okuri Ashi Harai, Harai Tsuri Komi Ashi, Ouchi gari and Ko uchi gari. Make sure when you are practicing these techniques that you are using your upper body simultaneously with your feet.

Hip escapes

Many Judoka neglect the Ne Waza aspect of training at home. There is plenty of mobility and agility exercises and drills you can do at home that will greatly increase your awareness on the ground. Practicing hip escapes over and over again will not only strengthen the legs but also make you an extremely hard person to pin. The hallway is the perfect length to practice hip escapes and the small width of the hallway will really sharpen your technique.


Basic gymnastic drills will always benefit a Judoka. Forward and backward rolls, cartwheels, hand-stands and basic gymnastic movements assist in keeping you supple as well as increase your spatial awareness. If you don't have enough room in your house then head out to the local park or tennis court and do some basic movements.

Here are just a few ideas of things you can do by yourself that will improve your Judo. Now you will never have an excuse about why you haven't done Judo in a while.

Know About Egg Donation Risks

Know About Egg Donation Risks Being an egg donor is a wonderful thing to do. This is because you know that you are helping other women who cannot have children get pregnant and begin a family. It is a very satisfying experience, especially if you get to know the recipient and can share their joy with them. However there are also some egg donation risks that donors and recipients should be aware of.

These risks are not that common but they do affect both donor and recipient. Firstly let us look at the risks a recipient might have. The news that you are infertile may be a depressing one and the thought of using an egg donation program may be a little disconcerting. You may not feel entirely comfortable with the fact that you do not have genetic ties to your future child. However the hope of having a baby of your own can certainly offset any worries you may have about egg donor risks. It is important to discuss any problems you may have with using other people’s eggs.
You will undergo a physical examination to ensure that you can carry a child full term and to eliminate any medical risks. You may have multiple births; in fact there is a 40% chance of this. Multiple births are exciting but can carry some risks of their own. They can often be harder to carry to full term and there is a risk of having a miscarriage or premature baby. The mother can have a higher risk of complications like high blood pressure, bleeding problems and diabetes.
The risks to a donor are mainly due to having to take fertility pills to produce multiple eggs. There are generally no complications but occasionally the donor can experience hyper stimulation of the ovaries. This allows around 30 eggs to be created in the woman’s ovaries and fluids leak from the blood vessels into the abdomen, causing bloating and nausea. These medicines can also put a strain on the kidneys. Very rarely death has been reported due to these drugs. Mood swings and infections can develop due to these medications.
In order to cut down egg donation risks to recipients it is necessary to find a good egg bank that screens the donors for any genetic problems. They should also have a physical and mental screening. In the profile of the donor you may also see pictures of their family and children. This will let the recipient make a good judgment about the quality of the donor’s eggs.
Both donor and recipient should be careful of their health. This will cut down the chance of anything happening to either of them during the process. They should try to reduce stress and eat a healthy diet that is low in fats and junk food. This will help them to stay healthy and have a better chance of producing a healthy child.
It is very important to find a good reliable egg donor risks bank. In case the woman does not get pregnant it is wise to deal with an egg bank that will offer a guarantee. This means that the money will be refunded in the event that the woman does not conceive. Various facilities provide screening for both donors and recipients to lower the risks for both the women trying to conceive and the donor. Some also provide a guarantee incase of failure to get pregnant as well as a flexible schedule for donors to come in for the screening and have tests that are done during the egg process. This will make sure that only quality eggs are donated.

Concerns Regarding Cost of Donor Eggs

Concerns Regarding Cost of Donor Eggs The cost of donor eggs has been a major issue amongst people donating and couples wanting to have a baby. The country’s price for a donor egg was previously $4,000 but today there are fertility centers that agree to pay as much as $15,000 for a donor egg. However, there are still many donor egg agencies that refuse to release their figures. The price of a donor egg actually varies from one clinic to another and from state to state. It is advisable that couples do research to get information for the various clinics in their area.

Unfortunately, this black market practice of buying out women to provide donor eggs at low compensation rates has been going on for some time. This unfair practice has even reached colleges and different universities where female university students are encouraged to donate their egg cells in order for them to earn money. Many more women are discouraged to take part in commercialized egg donation.
The cost of donor eggs will likely depend on the prospective parents. There are couples who seek someone who has an intelligent line of ancestors and then they will choose her eggs in the hopes of having a child of above average intelligence.
People who have been married and are striving to have a child only to discover that they are barren, realized that this is a very depressing experience. When couples encounter this dilemma they will not consider the cost of donor eggs. In their minds, they just want to have a baby and more often than not, they overlook the importance of getting a quality donor egg.
Why is it important to know the price of the donor eggs?
Women who are fertile tend not to understand fully those women who cannot bear a child. Adding to the problem, are the fertility clinics and certain hospitals that take advantage of the predicament of couples; they then charge them a hefty cost for donor eggs. The sellers of the eggs regard the eggs’ price to be cheaper than what a couple pays for when a woman delivers her baby.
As far as the purchasing of the donor eggs go, the intended parents will have difficulty with being able to find a suitable egg donor who will live up to their expectations. There is also this issue that in vitro fertilization clinics overlooked wherein the woman donating the eggs should not be paid again when the eggs she gave produced good results. The moment she donated the eggs and the clinic paid her the money for donating her eggs, is well enough.
The Actual cost of donor eggs.
The payment for the purchase of the frozen donor eggs includes the travel reimbursements and the medical bill of the donor. The bill starts from the series of examinations all the way to the fertility procedure itself. The sum also takes care of the legal charges between the two prospective parents and the donor- sometimes there are other agency fees that the couple are obliged to pay. This implies that after the transaction, the total cost of donor eggs will be approximately $12,000 and in some instances it can even amount to $15,000 depending on the circumstances. The donor is fortunate if she is given the sum of $5,000, for usually the payment is even lower than the said compensation.

Smokeless Cigarettes Health Benefits

Smokeless Cigarettes Health Benefits Smokeless cigarettes are not actual cigarettes but an electronic gadget that simulates the act and flavor of traditional cigarettes minus the major health risks. Smokeless or electronic cigarettes, as what they are commonly known, are popular and widely available in the market today because they are one of the best smoking cessation techniques proven to be effective and safe.
Also, electronic cigarettes do not contain tobacco making them a healthy alternative to traditional cigarettes.
There are several reasons why a smokeless cigarette is preferred by people who want to quit smoking or at least minimize their cigarette consumption. One of these reasons is the components or the technology behind smokeless cigarettes. It contains water solution, propylene glycol, nicotine and that rich tobacco flavor. When the electronic cigarette is turned on, the mentioned substances are heated thereby creating a vapor which is then inhaled by the smoker. The act of smoking a cigarette and having the same sensation is what makes this product popular among smokers especially those who are geared toward quitting the habit due to health problems.
Another important health benefit of fake or electronic cigarettes is that they only contain a small amount of nicotine and they do not contain carcinogenic substances like tar and other harmful chemicals. A lot of people are already conscious of the damages brought by regular a cigarette that is why smokeless cigarettes have become a popular option. Since it is smokeless and only emit water-based vapor, this type of cigarette can also be smoked in places where traditional cigarettes are normally banned such as public areas, inside airplanes or public utility vehicles. And because of this, secondhand smoking is reduced making it safe for fake cigarette smokers to take their nicotine fix even when they are with kids or with people who are sensitive to cigarette smoke.
Smoking fake cigarettes do not mean you would no longer enjoy smoking cigarettes. The fact of the matter is, it comes with different refillable flavors giving your system an impression that you are still smoking traditional cigarettes thus your cravings for nicotine is lessened. Also, smokeless cigarettes come in different nicotine levels that can better aid you if you intend to quit smoking. You can get a fake cigarette with the highest nicotine content then shift to those that contain less and less amount of nicotine until you finally kick the habit. Gradual cessation through fake cigarettes also eliminate withdrawal syndrome which is associated with people who suddenly stops smoking.
Aside from health benefits, smokeless cigarettes can also be beneficial to the pockets. A pack of traditional cigarettes costs $5 or more and if you consume two packs a day, that would be $10 the least. On the other hand, the cartridge of electronic cigarettes only ranges from $2 to $4 and each cartridge is equivalent to one and a half pack of cigarettes making you save a lot of money on your cigarette expenses plus you get to preserve your health and the welfare of the people around you.

Now is a smart time to buy as well, as the prices will be lower and you will have plenty of time to look at the different products available and determine which is best for you. Lighting is one of the most essential elements of any festive season, yet it can also be one of the more dangerous.

Simply place them in the right locations and plug them in and you will have a festive atmosphere filled with light this December.
Flameless candles come in many forms, some wired and some battery operated. For a traditional look, you can purchase imitation candles made of wax which look just like the real thing. They will flicker and glow like a proper candle via the small light bulb embedded within them. You can also purchase smaller tealight candles which illuminate the room through a small amber LED placed at the top of each light. Finally, you can find lanterns which look just like they have a small candle placed within them so that you can light up your home in a festive manner without having to worry.
While candles are synonymous with the festive season, these special lights can also be used at other times of year. Because flameless candles never burn down like their traditional counterparts, they can light up your home for years and years, at Christmas and at any other time. Not only are they safer but they are also more cost effective, meaning that you can purchase decorations for this upcoming festive season and then use them for the following few years as well.

understand solar power efficiency

understand solar power efficiency The question of how efficient are solar panels is important in its viability as a power generating technology and as a profitable one. People often have the misconception that solar power is free because sunlight is free and so we should use solar power. But the development, production and implementation of solar power on a wide scale is dependent on how efficient are solar panels. Though the technologies of solar cell production have contributed to a rise of efficiency and a lower cost, solar cells continue to be an emerging technology instead of a widely utilized one.

Solar power is an important green energy technology as sunlight is virtually limitless in supply and does not produce pollution. Knowing how efficient are solar panels and how to increase efficiency will be important in spreading the use of this green energy.
Measures of Efficiency in determining how efficient are solar panels
There are many ways of measuring just how efficient are solar panels. This includes the thermodynamic efficiency limit and theoretical energy conversion and actual efficiency. This just indicates just how much energy from sunlight can be converted into electricity and how much energy the solar cell actually can convert. While in theory over 80% of sunlight can be converted into energy, given normal conditions the conversion of a single junction silicon solar cell will have an efficiency of just over 30%.
How efficient are solar panels is also important in marketing it for commercial use. Currently there are several applications for solar panels aside from large scale power generation. Commercially available solar panels have an efficiency range of about 15%. While this may seem low, it is actually enough to provide for various needs. Solar panels are now used for charging various gadgets and even as backup power for homes and car
Another way to measure how efficient are solar panels is to compute for the cost of power generation. Price ranges are from $0.30 to $.50 per kilowatt-hour. This value is actually comparable with the peak cost of $.50 per kilowatt hour in worldwide figures.
Efficiency and Marketing Solar Power
While we may know how efficient are solar panels we also must know how this technology can also be widely used. People need to understand not just how efficient are solar panels but what this efficiency actually means. We may hear numbers thrown around on how efficient solar panels are but their actual effect and power generation capacity should be understood to appreciate their contribution. Although commercial solar panels may have efficiencies below 10%, they cost far less to produce than those with the highest known efficiency of above 30%. This means that we do not need to produce higher efficiency solar panels yet and we can get higher outputs through different combinations of lower efficiency solar panels which saves us a lot in terms of costs.
How efficient are solar panels of tomorrow
Solar power continues to develop as we aim to reach higher efficiencies and lower production costs. The question of how efficient are solar panels now extends not just to silicon based solar panels but to other materials as well. Materials such as Selenium, Gallium and Cadmium are also possible for use in solar panels. Crystal solar panels have by far the best efficiency in commercial applications while thin film solar panels need less materials of construction.
Knowing how efficient are solar panels will also help in looking for ways to achieve the highest efficiency. Concentrating sunlight as well as combining types of solar panels may help in achieving this efficiency. While for now we may still be wondering how efficient are solar panels, with developments continuing to be made we may soon instead ask how we can use solar power in our everyday lives.
Welcome to SolarPowerGeneratorsOnline, Do you know How efficient are solar panels? Solar energy is efficient enough to make a difference. Since solar power generators created energy from a renewable energy source, any amount of energy produced is helpful to people and the environment.
