 Your passport is only one of the few essential things you must remember to bring along with you when you travel. Yes, there’s sunscreen, guidebooks, your camera, and mobile phone. Also there are other important travel documents that you must have handy if you plan on crossing several borders on your trip. You don’t want to be the only one of your friends to have to trudge back home from the airport, not having been admitted entry to another country because you were missing some identification.

There’s also the first aid. Fun’s no fun if you have the sniffles plaguing you all throughout. There’s nothing like a fever that’s coming down on you like a ton of bricks to take the cool factor off of the trip. It pays to be healthy when you’re tromping along the fields and gawking around the sights of another country.

But these are the basics. While we don’t forget our MP3s, our guidebooks, our extra shirts or lucky hat, we forget the most basic of all: respect.

Sometimes we judge without thinking, comparing things with how they are back home. They’re supposed to be different. Learn to deal with the difference. Respect it. Observe the locals’ traditions, their ways. Watch without passing judgment. Don’t blunder about, thinking what you do at home is acceptable. See if it is. If it’s not, adjust.

Also, don’t forget to bring along a sense of humor. There are plenty of surprises that chance could spring on you when you’re on the road. Having the wit to laugh off even the most awful slip-ups or mishaps could keep your trip from turning into a disastrous jaunt, keeping it on a fun and thrilling keel.

So you have respect. And humor. If it’s not too much of a stretch for you, you could also try for a little kindness.

Most of the tourist-friendly places in the world aren’t first-world countries. They’re mostly the poor nations, where good-paying jobs are hard to come by and the majority of people survive on their wit and skills rather than their wealth or trust funds. Residents of these countries often work in the tourism industry to earn a few extra bucks everyday to help out in their families. They offer to drive you around, serve as your guide, provide you with transportation and basically try to make your stay a lovely and pleasant one.

When it’s time to go, don’t stiff them. Don’t pay them through the nose. They’ve worked hard to earn a living. While not all guides are hard-working or likable or charming, there are really the remarkable ones, the ones who stand out, who were kind to you, who did try to make your stay as fun as possible. Hand over an extra dollar or two if you think their service has been worth it. So long as they’ve earned it.

We’re not saying give them money because they don’t have a lot of it. We’re saying learn to appreciate the efforts that other people have put into making your stay a great one, in whatever country you are. People who made you respect them with their hard work and kindness.

It’s important to pay them back in kind, in travel and life.

Niche Marketing Secrets To Make Money Online by Patric Chan
Tue 21 Sep 2010
img



“I can't sell information products online anymore. It's saturated." Have you heard that said?

Actually, it's common to hear that. Yeah sure ... It is somewhat true if you want to sell another eBook about sales copywriting and compete with the veteran copywriters!

But you know what -- EVERYDAY, many people are laughing all the way to the bank from making sales of info-products. You see, they are smart. They don't sell another 'Harry Potter' or 'How To Make Money' eBook when they want to start their online info-product business. They sell info-products in a niche market.

You don't believe me?

Just go to Clickbank.com !

You'll find all kinds of info-products that you would never have imagined that people are selling and making money out of!

Here are a few examples:

·         An ebook info-product about Ipod MP3 players.
·         An ebook on how to do magic tricks.
·         An ebook on how to improve golf swings.
·         An ebook on how to improve your volley ball game.
·         An ebook about tropical fish.
·         An ebook about training Boxer Dog.

In a nutshell, I can give you 101 examples how these can all be home run, profitable products on the internet. The market for info-products will never be saturated if you know how to sell in a niche market. To be frank with you, I know it works because I have one of these sites that is making money for me while I sleep. In fact, you may be surprised to find out that some of these sites in Clickbank are actually mine!

Why niche marketing?

Niche marketing can be very profitable because you won't be competing with Internet gurus (They are busy with their own 'How To' niche) and your info-product can be highly 'targeted' to the prospects. For instance, someone who wants to start raising tropical fish at home, might order "Tropical Fish Secrets", which is an eBook in Clickbank. And the best part is, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to start an online niche business in less than a month!

Simple plan:

i. Get a niche info-product.
ii. Start a website.
iii. Drive traffic to it.

Of course, there is more to it than that, but by just by doing that... you should be able to start making money in an online niche market.

Note: Best-selling author and international speaker is now giving away his home course for just a few bucks-- discover the exact steps how you can make money with information products FASTEST POSSIBLE: http://tinyurl.com/29bmppw

Here's Your License to Print Money...
Tue 7 Sep 2010

If you want to learn how to do something, find someone who's a mind-blowing expert at it, and then make them spill all their secrets to you.

Do you want to make money online?

In fact, do you want to make money on demand, whenever you want?

Because I've found someone who does EXACTLY that .and I'll bet you've heard of this guy, too. His name is Ewen Chia, and he is THE affiliate every marketer wants promoting their products, because whatever he promotes, he sells a TON of. Now he's ready to spill his guts and tell YOU how he does it. Ewen has even promised to hold NOTHING back.

In fact, he's going to give you his PROVEN, step-by-step secret system that will have you generating massive cash in just a few days from now and he's backing his bold claim with his GUARANTEE that you'll make a fortune or you get your money back. http://tinyurl.com/2vyg95e

His system has been a secret until now, but he's going to reveal it all to you in a way that you can use to start seeing results almost immediately even if you're just starting out! And if you've failed in the past as an affiliate, or gotten less than stellar results, forget about it. It no longer matters, because with Ewen's secrets to success, you'll make back every single penny you've ever lost Plus you'll have the keys to earning as much as you want in the future.

Does all of this sound a little too fantastic?

It goes back to what I was saying if you want to learn how to do something, find someone who's already doing it, and then just do what they do. If you find a great tasting cake, ask the baker how he made it. Follow his recipe, and you'll have your own cake that tastes just as sweet. Makes sense, doesn't it? And once you've got the recipe, you can bake as many cakes, (or in this case, sell as many products) as you want, forever and ever!

The secret is in having the "recipe." Ewen Chia is the world's number one "Super-Affiliate." Don't take my word for it. You can Google his name, or click here for proof... http://tinyurl.com/2vyg95e So how does Ewen make hundreds of thousands of dollars EVERY MONTH? He has his own system that took 10 years of trial and error, research and testing to develop. He's perfected his system down to the last detail.

And he reveals EVERYTHING to you in "Super-Affiliates, The Easiest Way to Make a Fortune From Other People's Products." You could, of course, try to discover every secret Ewen knows through your own hard work, small successes and big mistakes, Or you could simply do what Ewen does, and start cashing those checks... http://tinyurl.com/2vyg95e

Abdou Karim and SOFthinking

P.S. So what is a "Super-Affiliate" and why would you want to become one?

Super affiliates have hyper-responsive lists. They can sell tons of copies of a single product. So product creators will literally BEG a super-affiliate to promote their products and hand them extra large commissions and incentives to do so!

Now here's a secret... it actually takes LESS effort to be a super affiliate than a regular affiliate, when you know what you're doing. And Ewen will take you by the hand to build YOUR super affiliate business from absolute scratch.

Plus he's agreed to CONTINUALLY hand you more money-crunching affiliate strategies every step of the way. But only when you click here... http://tinyurl.com/2vyg95e

Niche Marketing Success
Sun 8 Aug 2010
img

You can achieve niche marketing success much more quickly if you have a solid plan. Affiliate marketers everywhere know that narrowing down your marketing focus to a specific niche group of people gives you a much better chance of seeing those affiliate marketing riches you've been seeking. Narrowing the number of people you market to may seem counter-intuitive at first. After all, conventional wisdom says you want to reach the largest number of people possible in order to get sales. However, in affiliate marketing, this strategy could limit your income.
 
The Internet is a big place and there are thousands of people competing with you. If you just focus on broad categories of people, such as adults or homeowners, you'll probably get lost in the vast sea of other people promoting to this same enormous group. However, by narrowing your focus, you'll get traffic that’s much more likely to convert. For example, instead of focusing on people with pets, focus on cat owners who want to feed their pets a natural diet, or dog owners who want to buy sports-themed clothing for Fido and Spot. If you can find a niche that's looking specifically for the product you're promoting, and if  that hasn't got a lot of competition marketing to it already, your chances of making sales will go up a lot higher.
 
The narrower you can make your promotional focus, the better you'll do. Your websites may not get as many clicks as you're used to seeing, but those clicks will be far more valuable to you. With niche marketing, you'll see your conversion rates go up and your bank account swell. All it takes to use niche marketing to increase your earnings is a little time to research which niches are potentially the most profitable. Then, you can tweak your campaigns to focus on your chosen niches and watch the money roll in.

A Reluctant Review of "Underground Traffic Blueprints
Sat 7 Aug 2010
img
 Have you ever been in a swimming pool at a hotel enjoying a relaxing swim when someone walks up with a towel and asks how the water is? Well, have you ever lied, and said that it's kind of cold so you didn't have to share the pool with them?

Mmmm, That's what I feel like doing with my review of Jeremy's and Simon's Underground Traffic Blueprints, but what is the point; the cat's coming out of the bag on the 13th of this month so I might as well earn brownie points with you by inviting you in. http://tinyurl.com/35koqdf

It's a true game changing series of video's with a surprise bonus series at the end, which is going to change the entire Internet marketing landscape, in the next few years, in ways I don't think Eric Schmidt or Mark Zuckerberg could even imagine. Surprise aside, Jeremy and Simons, Underground Traffic Blueprints are the most informative and in depth marketing series to be released this summer.

After finishing my sneak peek, I'd have to say this series packs more punch than a hotel full of Guru's parading around on stage, in a week's worth of seminars. These two guys lay it out straight, giving up secrets only whispered in the washroom amongst gurus at such events. They show you the tools, the concepts and guide you through the "gray" areas of the underground marketing world, where the real money is made. Everything is laid out like a blueprint or a flow chart if you will, so it's easy to follow along and see the benefits or consequences, each step of the way. http://tinyurl.com/35koqdf

UTB is better than a seminar because you can pause the video to take notes or look something up as you go along. I found this series rock solid with often "off the wall" underground tactics for Adwords, article marketing, Facebook marketing, SEO domination, site building, and more (plus a surprise). We are not talking about the usual stuff here. Even when Simon and Jeremy covered a topic that I thought I knew, they soon would throw in some obscure underground twist, I never heard of before, and then continue to prove it out and show me how to integrate it into my own business.

UTB teaches you how to quickly tighten up your tactics while always pounding on the theme of keeping everything organized and done right so you can scale it to fit your success, rather than re-invent the wheel every time you move forward. I think they did a good job for "Newbies" too because they show underground tactics to put into to place from even the very beginnings of a campaign. Therefore, I am very sure, even the worst "Newbie" could pick this up and probably even do better than a seasoned IM'er who is following the herd. http://tinyurl.com/35koqdf

Best of all, along with every strategy taught, they also provide a formula for testing the tactics out, at little or no risk. Therefore, even though they had plenty of proof for their assertions, you where never expected to be required, to drop a couple of more hundred dollars to follow their advice. You could prove every idea for yourself, very affordably. I also found it refreshing that they never tried to sell me anything throughout the series.

Every tool they suggested using is free or they show you how to get it free and every site they recommend for service had a free trial or they provided another free method that worked almost as well. From just watching, the very first six videos of this 36 video set, you could make a profitable career, if you follow this systematic blueprint from start to finish, you could easily and exponentially, change your standard of living by sending TONS of targeted and eager buyers to your offers.

What I find most amazing though, is the bonus video about a new hybrid direct mail to Internet business model. It is so outside of everything, everyone else is teaching on the web, that the only reason I can think of, for why others don't teach it, is that A) either they don't know themselves, or B) they know, but don't want you to know. If it was me, well I might want to enjoy it a bit more by myself first, before sharing this hot little hybrid secret. Lucky for you though, it's almost launch time! Hit this link ring now to get one of the best marketing courses you'll ever get your hands on: http://tinyurl.com/35koqdf

pH Miracle Diet and Water Ionizers
Mon 2 Aug 2010
img


The pH miracle diet is a revolutionary new program for restoring balance to the body. By eating foods and drinks that are mostly alkaline, you remove the negative effects of acidic foods. People who have started the diet report that they experience weight loss, improvement in arthritis, removal of concentration problems and more energy as well as many other benefits. The key to the pH miracle diet is eating primarily alkaline foods, however, drinking alkaline water is also important.

Alkaline or ionized water provides your body with the right pH it needs for your cells to function. The human body and all of its cells have a pH of 7.4 that is slightly alkaline. Drinking alkaline water helps support this system. Ionized alkaline water can be created in your very own home with the use of a water ionizer. The water ionizer will take the water from your kitchen faucet and pass it through an advanced filter that will remove pesticides, chlorine and other contaminants. The water will then be pulls through an ionization chamber. In this chamber, the pre-filtered water is run over positive and negative electrodes to split it into acid and alkaline water.

Alkaline water is better tasting and has antioxidant activity. It improves your body's ability to detoxify itself and increases the oxygen delivered to your cells. The minerals within the water are microclustered for better hydration. Drinking alkaline water each day will help your body become more balanced. If you use green drinks to support your pH miracle diet, mixing them with ionized water will increase their effectiveness. Using ionized water in cooking will also produce better tasting foods. Alkaline water will help vegetables maintain their natural colors when you steam them.

Ionized water helps rid your body of accumulated acid. The water helps flush toxins from all of the body tissues and into the kidneys, where it is then excreted through the urine. If you've been eating a highly acidic diet and start the pH miracle diet it is recommended that you drink 4 liters of ionized water per day to get your system back in order. Four liters of water per day may seem like a lot, but it will be better for your health if you flush out the toxins as fast as possible.

A water ionizer has two water chambers, one with positive electrodes and one with negative electrodes. The negative electrodes will attract the positive minerals (which are all alkaline) and the positive electrodes attract negatively charged minerals (or acid minerals). The alkaline minerals are calcium, magnesium, manganese and potassium. The acid minerals are chlorine, fluoride, sulfur, silicon and copper.


The two chambers have a special membrane between them with microscopic holes. The holes are so small that the water molecules cannot mingle, but the ionized minerals can get through. After the process is complete, there will be about 70% alkaline water and 30% acid water. The alkaline water comes through the spigot, and the acid water is expelled directly into the drain.

Water ionizers have been in use for the last 60 years and were first developed in Japan's agricultural universities. The health benefits of ionized water were well researched and then water ionizers became available to the Japanese public. They are now available to residents in other countries as well.

The Quickest Way to Get is to Give
Mon 2 Aug 2010
img

It's true.  You can't really get what you want in life until you have given it to others.  Doesn't sound like it makes much sense, does it?  How can you give what you don't have?  As you open your mind to the possibility and ask this question of yourself, you allow opportunity to come to you and knock at your door.  Then you will find a way that it is possible to give to others what you want, before receiving it yourself.

It almost sounds like a chain letter and in a way it is.  The chain letter is a facetious reference as so many of us have been exposed to them by now and know they are illegitimate scams.  Yet the basic principles are: you give before you receive, and you give with the faith and expectation of receiving.  A similar modern example can be seen in the film 'Pay It Forward'.  By giving to others, you allow good things to happen to you.  And this all boils down to the simple law of attraction.

The law of attraction is like any other law of nature, like gravity.  And like gravity, it is not one that has been generally 'discovered' yet.  As a result, most of us are walking around thinking in a completely disordered paradigm.  

Disordered paradigms of thought are displayed over and over in history, and discoveries of natural laws and observations of reality have brought order to transform the mistaken beliefs that had been accepted for fact.  You can think of many examples, such as the belief that the world is flat, or the belief that we are at the center of the universe.  Or the great changes that resulted as a discovery of the force of electricity and harnessing its natural power.

In this same way, we are able to make a change in our own disordered thought patterns.  Right now 99% of us are probably dissatisfied.  Dissatisfaction means larger life is seeking to be expressed through us, and it is being blocked.  Self-sabotage is a very real process working in the invisible realms of the unconscious mind.

The good news is there are a lot of simple, small but powerful techniques you can use to reprogram that all powerful unconscious mind of yours, to order your own life as you want it.  Yes, there IS a way to eliminate the chaos in your life, and it starts within.  It starts by eliminating the often unseen chaos in your own mind.

The technique in this article is only one of a vast array that you can use on a daily basis to improve your life dramatically.  In this article you are learning how to use the law of attraction to attract to yourself what you want.

The law of attraction, like gravity, is undefiable.  You will attract what you are sending out.  Your thoughts are real in the world of attraction.


If your mind is resonating with patterns of anxiety, stress, anger, sadness, envy, grief, or any other negative emotion, you will be attracting more of the same in your life.

One step you can take to change this is to focus on giving to others before you receive yourself.  In this way you are changing your vibration and your focus.  And you open yourself to receive what you had been closing off before.

It is very simple to give.  Give of what you have, and everyone has something to give.  We all have innate value to offer the world.  An abiding philosophy in the law of attraction is to always offer an increase in value, to give back more in value than you receive in money.  In this way you continue to give more than you get and attract more and larger life back to yourself.

Take a moment to look within and find something, anything, no matter how small or simple, to give to anyone, friend or stranger.  Start the practice of giving, and you will take one step towards raising your level of vibration and enhancing the value of what you attract in your own life.  Give something selflessly today, knowing that you will receive it multiplied back in your life, tenfold.

Ideas and Theme for Your Baby Shower
Mon 2 Aug 2010
img
It is always a great joy to have someone added to your family, especially if it is a cute little baby. And how else would you celebrate the joy of having one?

Plan the most fun and unique baby shower you’ll ever have. Preparing for a baby shower should be fun and exciting. You can be as creative as you want.

Go simple or go real extravagant.

As long as you will make your party special and unforgettable, you can go ahead and experiment on the different themes you can have. You can go traditional or get a little creative and make your baby shower a lot more unique. You can spice up the party with different themes that can either be serious, adorable or humorous. Below are some popular themes ideas that would surely be a hit in any baby showers.

Color themes

The usual color themes for girls are pink and blue for the boys. These are simple themes that can be just as fun as other themes. Decorate your venue with your chosen color theme. In putting up colored ribbons, intertwine them with a white ribbon too. This would give the room an elegant look. If you are unsure whether your baby would be a boy or a girl, settle for neutral colors like green or yellow.

Baby bottles theme

You can have a baby bottle as your centerpiece in this particular theme. Use them as cute containers for game prizes. You can make fun of them too by using baby bottles as cups or mugs. Teddy bear theme Everyone loves these cuddly teddies. They are perfect for decorations. You don’t have to buy teddy bears though to fill up the room. Old but presentable ones will do. It would be memorable to have the guest of honor’s favorite teddy as a centerpiece.

Diaper theme Begin with sending cute diaper cut- out invitation. Guests should bring their own diaper gifts with a particular size. This way, you can save on diapers even up to three months! Nursery rhyme theme It’s a good idea to make nursery rhymes as theme for your party. You can make use of famous character like Humpty Dumpty, Little Bo Peep, or the famous Mother Goose.

Pictures could be nice as decorations but it would really look nice if you have some kind of a replica. You can also add on some of the line to your invitations. Themes for twins Remember the famous Noah’s ark story? All animals are paired in two’s when lodging the ark. It’s the perfect theme for expectant mothers of twins.

Don’t forget to note in your invitation that you will be having twins, this way; guests will have to bring two gifts of either the same kind or two different ones.

Fairytale Themes


There are thousand of fairytale characters that have been a tradition throughout baby shower parties. Cinderella and Snow White are the most common ones for girl. Peter Pan is the most suitable character for boys. This kind of theme can be made interesting with colorful decorations and creates a fantasy- like atmosphere.

Having a theme in your baby shower can add a little more coordination in the things you need to prepare. A theme would dictate which kind of food you need to prepare, the look of the invitations and how you would decorate your chosen venue. With a theme, you would have to be groping in the dark on how you would create that perfect baby shower. http://www.softhinking.org/babyshower/index.php

Developing Reading Skills When Homeschooling Your Child

The extreme amount of flexibility offered by homeschooling creates many educational benefits. One of them, of course, is that "home" and "school" become one, so that the educational experience doesn't have to begin and end with the ringing of a bell. By incorporating educational activities into your home life as a whole, you child will gain a more valuable educational experience.

 One of the best things about home schooling is you can come up with an educational plan that suits your child's particular needs. By working one on one with a child, you can create an individual learning system that can be more beneficial then the learning techniques used in a public or private school. When coming up with an individual education plan for your child, make sure you place focus on reading.

 Much of the philosophy of homeschooling is about not being subject to the limitations of the public school system, and an area where the public school system commonly falters is in reading. Many public school students perform poorly on standardized reading tests, which is unfortunate as reading skills are crucial to a child's education.

 Reading can't really be emphasized too much when homeschooling your child. While there should be a good balance of subject areas taught throughout the teaching day, reading should be encouraged during your child's free time. While it may be difficult to get a child into doing math or science work in his or her free time, reading is a different story.

 As soon as your child can read, he or she should always be reading something. As long as you find the subject matter appropriate, allow your child to read whatever he wants in his free time. Develop the habit at a young age of getting your child to always have a book on the go. By finding books that your child enjoys, your child will, from a young age, associate reading with a fun experience, which will do wonders for his further education.

 You must also understand how important it is to set your own example. Try and set time aside during the day in which you read, and in the evening hours, when most children would be watching television, sit down with your child and read together. When it gets close to the child's bedtime, imply that you will be going to be soon as well - because you have a good book to read.

 Reading is a fantastic educational opportunity because it is the basis for which your child will learn many other things. When a child is reading a book they are not only bettering their reading skills, they are becoming privy to knowledge contained within the book. It is important that reading begins at a young age because mastering it is a slow process, and you will be doing your child a serious disservice later in life if you choose not to focus on reading early.

7 Blocks To Creative Thinking And How To Solve Them
Sat 31 Jul 2010

7 Blocks To Creative Thinking And How To Solve Them


1. Don't Make Assumptions. When we assume, we often make an "ass" out of "u" and "me". Assumptions are examples of lazy thinking. We simply don't wait to get all the information we need to come to the right conclusions. There is the story of the customer at the bank who after cashing a cheque and turning to leave, returns and says: "Excuse me, I think you made a mistake." The cashier responds, "I'm sorry but there's nothing I can do. You should have counted it. Once you walk away we are no longer responsible." Whereupon the customer replies: "Well, okay. Thanks for the extra $20." Tip: When you feel yourself wanting to draw conclusions, just wait until you have all the information.

2. See Things From Other Points Of View. A truly open mind is willing to accept that, not only do other people have other just as valid points of view from theirs, but that these other points of view may be more valid. A story is told that the modernist painter Pablo Picasso was once traveling on a train across Spain when he got into conversation with a rich businessman who was dismissive of modern art. As evidence that modern art didn't properly represent reality, he took out a photo of his wife from his wallet and said: "This is how my wife should look, not in some silly stylized representation." Picasso took the photo, studied it for a few moments and asked: "This is your wife?" The businessman proudly nodded. "She's very small," observed Picasso wryly. Tip: Don't have a monopoly on how things are. Things aren't always what they seem. Be ready to consider other points of view.

3. Avoid Yo-Yo Thinking. Some people tend to have a tendency to swing from a highly positive mood one minute to a highly negative one the next, all because of what they see in front of them. It's like a yo-yo: up one minute, down the next. It's far more healthy to stay neutral and not let emotions get the better of you. Tip: Remember that things are rarely as good - or as bad - as you think they are.

4. Get Rid Of Lazy Thinking Habits. Habit can be a major stumbling block to clear thinking and another example of laziness. Try this experiment. Write down the Scottish surnames Macdonald, Macpherson, and Macdougall and ask someone to pronounce them. Now follow these with the word Machinery and see what happens. Most people are likely to mis-pronounce it. This is because we tend to think in habitual ways and don't like what doesn't fit. Tip: Don't think that, just because things happened in a certain way once before, that they will happen like that again.

5. Don't Think Like An Old Person, Think Like A Child. Research shows that the number of synapses, or connections, in the brain is greater in a child of two than in an average adult. The reason for this is that, while a child of two has no limiting world view, as adults we do. It's like a sculptor who starts off with a large block of clay, more than he needs, and then gradually removes the clay as he moulds his sculpture. If we use our brain like a child, accepting everything without judgment, we can actually halt and reverse the brain ageing process. Tip: Don't worry about the myth of age. With the right stimulus and a passion for learning, you can actually improve your brain's powers.

6. See The Detail As Well As The Big Picture. You may know the poem by John Godfrey Saxe called "The Blind Men and the Elephant". This tells how six blind men of Indostan go to see an elephant and each try to work out what it is from touching it. One blind man touches the tusk, another the trunk, another the tail, and so on. Of course, not being able to see the whole elephant, they come to wildly different conclusions.  Tip: Try to keep the big picture in front of you while looking at details. It will help to put everything in its proper place and context.

7. Think For Yourself. Taking time out to think is still frowned on in many organizations that prize activity over creativity. People who work in creativity-constrained organizations are likely to think the way they are supposed to think, or as others think, or as has always been the way to think. It's like the blinkered thinking that Hans Christian Anderson describes in his story of "The Emperor's New Clothes". Everyone in the land refuses to see that the emperor is naked and has been duped into believing he is wearing a splendid costume for his coronation. Only a young boy who has been ill and not party to the cultural brainwashing can see the truth and cries out: "Look, everyone, the Emperor is wearing no clothes!" Tip: Don't let others tell you how to think. When others ask your opinion, tell it to them straight.

Once you make these 7 techniques part of your habitual thinking patterns, you will amaze yourself with how easy it is to come up with fresh, innovative and creative solutions to all of life's problems.

Developing Reading Skills When Homeschooling Your Child
Fri 30 Jul 2010

The extreme amount of flexibility offered by homeschooling creates many educational benefits. One of them, of course, is that "home" and "school" become one, so that the educational experience doesn't have to begin and end with the ringing of a bell. By incorporating educational activities into your home life as a whole, you child will gain a more valuable educational experience.


 


One of the best things about home schooling is you can come up with an educational plan that suits your child's particular needs. By working one on one with a child, you can create an individual learning system that can be more beneficial then the learning techniques used in a public or private school. When coming up with an individual education plan for your child, make sure you place focus on reading.


 


Much of the philosophy of homeschooling is about not being subject to the limitations of the public school system, and an area where the public school system commonly falters is in reading. Many public school students perform poorly on standardized reading tests, which is unfortunate as reading skills are crucial to a child's education.


 


Reading can't really be emphasized too much when homeschooling your child. While there should be a good balance of subject areas taught throughout the teaching day, reading should be encouraged during your child's free time. While it may be difficult to get a child into doing math or science work in his or her free time, reading is a different story.


 


As soon as your child can read, he or she should always be reading something. As long as you find the subject matter appropriate, allow your child to read whatever he wants in his free time. Develop the habit at a young age of getting your child to always have a book on the go. By finding books that your child enjoys, your child will, from a young age, associate reading with a fun experience, which will do wonders for his further education.


 


You must also understand how important it is to set your own example. Try and set time aside during the day in which you read, and in the evening hours, when most children would be watching television, sit down with your child and read together. When it gets close to the child's bedtime, imply that you will be going to be soon as well - because you have a good book to read.


 


Reading is a fantastic educational opportunity because it is the basis for which your child will learn many other things. When a child is reading a book they are not only bettering their reading skills, they are becoming privy to knowledge contained within the book. It is important that reading begins at a young age because mastering it is a slow process, and you will be doing your child a serious disservice later in life if you choose not to focus on reading early.


 


Every education should be well rounded of course, but reading is a building block from which other education follows. When homeschooling your child, encourage him or her to read from a young age. If you so do you stand a good chance of instilling a lifelong habit that will benefit your child until the end of his days.

How To Look Younger
Fri 30 Jul 2010
img







 


The first thing you should do to look younger is to acknowledge that there are good things in store for you, and you deserve to have those. So it’s all about setting your mind to get to your end. You must value the thought that almost all good things in life are brought into fruition with the right attitude and positive thinking.


 


So now, are you set to defy aging and look young? If you are, then these age-defying tips will surely help you look youthful easily.


 


Tip 1


 


No matter what you do, whether you have a demanding schedule or just being lazy in your cozy home, make sure you are getting enough sleep- and a good one at that. Your eyes will first tell if you have had enough sleep. A pair of eye-bug-free and sparkling eyes definitely makes you look younger. But how many is the suggested sleeping duration?


 


Perhaps you were brought up thinking that you should sleep at least 8 hours a day. Well, you should not. A new study says that those who sleep 6-7 hours live longer and healthier. Too much slumber is not good for you. In fact, sleeping for five hours is better than sleeping three hours more than that.


 


To have a good sleep, take some natural soporifics.  These are substances that can induce sleeping. Milk is a very good example. Sex and a little aerobic may also help you sleep well.  


 


Tip 2


 


Keep you hair short. A long hair puts in more years to your appearance, actually making you look like a tired and worn-down witch. Trying a shorter do can improve your youthfulness. Tell your hairdresser to give you side swept bangs to expose your beautiful face. Adding layers can also make our hair look lively and shinier. A little highlight may also do. Putting on a darker hair (dark brown or black) does not only make you younger, but also coats up those grey hair. 


 


Tip 3


 


Live in a clean environment. People who live older like the centenarians have some surrounding things in common: little stress, unpolluted air, good water, and unspoiled nature. Planting more trees in your area and planting more plants in your garden can help you provide cleaner air. More plants in the area mean more oxygen to breathe. Remember that what we breathe is the exact thing they exhale, and vice versa.


 


Tip 4


 


Do not put a lot of makeup. Yes, makeup can make you look pretty. But its amount, composition, and its style can make or break you. Keeping makeup light won’t make you look like a villain. Use more pastel colors and those with lighter tones instead of the dark antagonistic-like colors. Also try lipsticks with brown shade. These would make you look more natural and a lot of ears younger


 


Tip 5


 


Take care of your teeth. Ever notice there are a lot of old people who only have false teeth? This is because as we age, our body absorbs and stores less calcium (which also explains why old women are prone to osteoporosis).


 


So avoid losing your teeth permanently. Brushing every after meal is the most basic yet the most helpful habit for a good-looking set of teeth. Use teeth whitening products that can make you teeth white and shiny. Coffee and tea can stain your teeth instantly so a brush after is really helpful.


 


Going to the dentist at least twice a year is very important. And never forget to drink at least two glasses of milk a day, like what we teach to the real young ones.

What Is Organic Vegetable Gardening
Fri 30 Jul 2010
img







 


Vegetables should be part of everyone’s diet. If you don’t want to spend a little bit more for those organically grown and sold in the supermarket, perhaps you should consider planting your own in the garden. It is very easy to do that even your kids can join in the fun.


 


Organic vegetable gardening is the “in thing” these days as people have realized that the use of fertilizers and pesticides do more harm than good. Yes it will make the vegetables bigger or enable the farmer to harvest them faster but the chemicals used in making this happen could be detrimental to the health of those who eat it.


 


But since the early farmers never did that and relied only on sunlight and irrigation, this concept is making a comeback. These will also enable you to this at home since you have access to the three most basic things namely soil, water and sunlight.


 


What kind of organic vegetables can you plant? Well, just about everything. Some examples of these include broccoli, cabbage, carrots, onions, potatoes and a lot more. You just have to know which of them can be planted during the different seasons of the year.


 


Proper drainage is important for your vegetables. If there isn’t, you can check if it is feasible to grow these using a raise bed.


 


When you have done your research, you can now buy the seeds from the store. These are usually sold in packets so don’t forget to read the instructions before using them.


 


Planting the seeds for your organic vegetable gardening is the second phase of this operation. The challenging part is making sure nothing happens to it until the time comes that this will be harvested.


 


Your vegetables may be under attack by pests, weeds and other animals. To prevent this from happening, you need to get a bird, a toad and even other insects to eat them. For weeds, the only thing you can do is pull these one by one from the ground. As for other animals, putting up fences and using animal hair, baby powder or deodorant soaps seems to be a good deterrent.  


 


Mulch is another solution. This can be made from chipped barks, garden compost, leaf moulds and manure. It must be applied at 3 to 4 inches or 8 to 10 cm from the ground in order for it to be effective.


 


Some organically grown vegetables can also be done indoors. Take for example that tomato that can be grown using an organic container made out of clay, plastic or wood. Just don’t forget to give it some water daily and sunlight so it can grow.


 


You can place the containers outside during the day and if the weather is too cold, bring them indoors and put them somewhere else like in the western or southern windows of your home.  


 


One more thing you have to remember about growing organic vegetables in such containers is not to use soil but rather a mixture of peat, perlite and vermiculite.


 


Organic vegetable gardening is challenging but it pays off when you are able to reap what you sow. This means additional savings and maybe even a small business if you want to sell whatever excess you have in the market.
