Social Forecasting and Megatrends

Posted by patrick

By Liz Thompson

Patricia Aburdene is one of the world's leading social forecasters. For 25 years, she has helped thousands of organizations and millions of people make the most of social change and transformation.

Patricia is the co-author of the publishing phenomenon, Megatrends 2000, and she has a new book out called Megatrends 2010: The Rise of Conscious Capitalism. The book is a guide to the economic, spiritual and social trends that will shaping free enterprise, as well as how we live, work and invest.

Patricia describes 'conscious capitalism' as a holistic vision of business in which consumers, investors, suppliers, managers, and visionary CEOs all play a role. More than a megatrend, it's also a self-organizing movement, with everyone trying to restore ethics, accountability and soulfulness.

"Leading from the Middle" is a chapter from her latest book, and it reminds us to look past our narrow definition of authority to include 'informal authority', as well as a one that is more spiritual in nature.

According to Patricia, this can be called 'moral authority', and in business it has as much value as traditional types of authority. How does one lead from the middle? A very important way is to live and breathe your gifts when you're at work. The influence you can wield this way is powerful, and that makes this a recognized style of leadership.

We as consumers have extraordinary power over corporations that we disagree with or complain about. We take our values shopping with us. How are we using our vote as consumers? We vote at the cash register every day for the products we like and the products that we think demonstrate our values. We vote against those we don't think mirror our values.

Values-driven investors are those who want to earn a return, but they want to do it by bringing their values to the table, as well. This movement toward socially responsible investing has been going on in the US since the 1970s.

What is the future of the conscious capitalism? In the next five years, Patricia believes, conscious capitalism could grow from a minority culture to mainstream. Those of us who have walked the spiritual path are finally learning the power of prosperity, which is being extended out into the business world. It's time for us to align our products and investments with our values, and to bring this into the marketplace.

Shut Up And Save Your Marriage!

Posted by patrick

By Sabrina Summerfield

Have you ever considered that in order to save your marriage you may need to stop talking so much with your spouse? To many people not talking, fighting, and showing all the dramatic emotion goes against the grain of working things out, but for many it can make the difference between a vow renewal ceremony and divorce.

Most couples who are having difficulties turn to a therapist or counselor of some sort, seeking intervention to steer them through to happier times. While this does work for some people, others find themselves filling out divorce papers before they even finish their pre-paid sessions.

Why is it that talking works for some couples but fails miserably for others?

If you want to turn talk time into a rekindled marriage, you have to understand at some point that the actual talking is not what heals a marriage. What will ultimately save a relationship is both people being able to really listen to one another and then take deliberate steps outside of talk time to make things better for one another.

Talk alone will never work. While therapists can be extremely beneficial, it all comes down to how receptive both parties are to the sessions. If you both sit there holding your breath in anger waiting for your turn to list all the flaws of your partner, then you are not really listening to one another and nothing will be solved.

Another way to totally screw things up is to leave the talk session in a rage, screaming and yelling at one another. Or, you can completely shut one another out and refuse to talk at all. In either case, you aren't like to move forward with positive action to fix the problems and all the fighting or ignoring will lead nowhere.

Yet, if you can really listen to one another in the therapists office or even just while sitting down for an honest conversation, then you have a fighting chance. You don't need months of sessions or months of at-home fighting to fix a marriage. What you need is a short period of honest discussion followed by action.

If you really want to save your marriage, then realize that action counts more than words. When it comes down to rekindling a flame or letting it snuff out, what you do counts much more than what you say.

Job Interview Coaching: Add Value To Your Business, Be On The Cutting Edge

Posted by patrick

By Carole Martin, The Interview Coach

You name it - Skype Connection, Blackberry, Cell Phone, iPhone " these are the tools of this trade.

You are probably already experiencing it in your business. You reach out to someone in a far away country and work with a client via a Blackberry or an iPhone or a cell phone? Believe me, this is the way of the future, and it is already here!

Picture this scenario:

My iphone rings and I answer to find that the call is from a man who starts out by saying, Hello, I'm calling from Israel. I'm in California, USA and I am a bit shocked by this announcement. Why would someone from Israel be calling me? He is calling to get interview coaching for a job interview that will take place in Israel, in Hebrew. .

My response is, I'm not sure I can help you, I don't know anything about Israel and job interviewing there. But this man is determined, and he says that he will also be interviewing in the US. He wants feedback on his interviewing techniques and answers and has found my website on the Internet.

If he is willing so am I. So, the coaching progresses over a few weeks and a few calls, over the BlackBerry and email and even my cell phone when I am out of town visiting in the east coast. Our final session is to coach him through his salary negotiation on an offer he has received after his successful interviews.

This man got the job in a very competitive situation at one of the most prestigious companies in Israel - and was able to negotiate a higher salary offer after our work together. This is truly a wonderful ending to this story.

He is thrilled and thinks that our work together was the reason for his success. He tells me that I am a great interview coach!

This is what I call exciting work. What a wonderful, crazy world we live in. In a business where the sky's the limit!

The business of coaching is growing like crazy. In fact, it is quietly taking over the $427 Billion home-business sector by storm. The average income generated by home office households is $63,000 a year.

How do you size-up with those figures? I have learned some secrets of success after being in the interview coaching business for over ten years.

One of the secrets to success in a coaching business is to find the right niche for you. It's not always easy to find that niche, a niche where you can make a difference, the one that will satisfy your needs, and a niche where you can make some serious money.

I found my niche after some trial and error, and that niche is Interview Coaching. This is my method of being able to reach out and help people, that's what my business is all about. This is my means of connecting with people all over the United States and way beyond.

I was one of those people who wasn't satisfied with my job as an HR Manager and when life offered an me an opportunity, I took it. I had a very specific niche in mind and that was to help women in transition to re-enter the workplace. That was where I was in my own life and thought I could help these women because I had walked in their shoes. I went back to school to earn my Masters degree in Career Development.

Well, niches have a way of bending to the right and then to the left - and today I find myself coaching people from all walks of life.

A single phone call I received one day placed me as the interview expert for I have now been writing and have been quoted by for the past eight years. This started the ball rolling.

Another phone call came from someone who wanted to be an FBI agent. He asked me if I knew anything about the FBI interview process. My answer was, No. But, a part of interview coaching is understanding Behavioral Interviewing, which happens to be the basis for the FBI interview. He hired me to help him, and over the past six years I have become the Guru of the FBI interview.

These areas are very far from my original goal of helping women in transition.

My clients are not only people in job search, they are from every field imaginable including someone who wanted to be on a major quiz program and couldn't get through the initial interview, authors who want to sell their books to agents, entrepreneurs who want to sell their businesses to investors/or sponsors, and, even a beauty queen who needed answers to difficult questions.

Can you imagine how interesting and exciting this work is? There's something new every day. It's so rewarding, it doesn't even feel like work.

There are some factors that will determine what makes a really good interview coach. You might think that just anyone could hang out a sign or create a website and advertise themselves as an Interview Coach. In reality they can do that, but that doesn't mean that they have what it takes to do a good job or that they will be able to reap the benefits for their clients or themselves.

Here's a quick quiz for you to take to determine if interview coaching might be a niche for you to explore further.

__ Are you making the revenue that you had hoped for?

Getting the word out that this is your niche - or that you've added a niche is important. The amount of money you make through interview coaching will be determined by the amount of time and effort you put into marketing. The more networking you do means more money for you.

__ Are you looking for added value to give your clients?

If you already a have a career business, or are a resume writer, or even a career counselor, the more credibility you have through great results, the better the referrals, and that will give you added clients and more income.

__ Are you up to a new challenge of learning a new skill set?

Cutting edge techniques and methods will only enhance your credibility and give you the savvy to present yourself as an expert in new areas that you may not now offer or feel that you are really qualified to delve into.

__ Are you a good problem solver, able to diagnosis the problem?

The first thing you want to find out from any interview coaching client is Tell me what's been happening in your job search and interviews? Then the listening and problem solving begins. If you like diagnosing problems and getting to the root of whats going on with a person, this is right up your alley.

__ Are you ready to give straight-forward, sometimes difficult feedback?

The clients that call you for interview coaching want to find out what they can do to be the best contender, or what they have been doing wrong. It's up to you to give them the real scoop. Sometimes it is difficult to tell a client something about how they are coming across or how their appearance could be keeping them from getting those offers. Good communication skills and practice are the key to your success.

__ Are you willing to spend time marketing this new service?

If you have an established practice, this will be an add-on to your marketing efforts. If you are starting a new line or business then you will have to use some resources to get your business going.

__ Are you patient with people from other cultures?

People who contact you for interview coaching services often times will have English as a second language. It will be your decision if you can work with people who require a bit more patience and coaching on how to use the language and how they can better be understood.

__ Are you willing to be the clients rock when they get rejected?

It will be part of your job to let people know that "life goes on" when when he/she has been beat up or wounded in the workplace, and that they can't give up. Sometimes you will be asked for advice, even outside the interview arena. Sometimes this will be in the form of just plain listening.

__ Are you ready to make a greater difference in peoples lives?

You may already know how good it feels when you actually make a difference and you get those calls or emails letting you know that you have helped someone over a speed bump or given them the confidence they needed to take a risk.

Did you check seven or more of the ten skills required? If you did, I encourage you to explore interview coaching so that you can continue "to make a difference in peoples lives."

What is life after all if it isn't about making a difference? You can make a difference in your own life as well as other peoples' lives. The rewards are when a young college student sends you an email that says she just got the job. Or a man who has been on 20 interviews with no offers writes that he finally received a job offer, and he is calling to thank you for "making a difference in his life." Those successes are the emails and the calls that make my day.

Being an interview coach offers new challenges, variety and the chance to play many different roles during a single day. The roles often times vary with each client. The clients are all different; people in transition, or up for an internal promotion, or people changing fields, or even young people entering the work force. And, don't forget the walking wounded who have been laid off, or fired, or just quit when they couldn't take it any longer. These people need help, they need encouragement, they need caring for. And they just keep on coming and keep my phone ringing.

You can play a role in peoples lives, in their job satisfaction, and in their successes. It can be a very rewarding experience for you that happens over, and over, and over, extending all over the world. You can make a difference as an Interview Coach.

Agarikon (Fomes officinalis) - A Native American Miracle Mushroom?

Posted by patrick

By Dr. Markho Rafael

The medicinal mushroom Agarikon (Fomes officinalis) can live for 50 years or more, making it one of the longest living perennial mushrooms in the world. This is even more impressive in light of the fact that it starts growing on trees that are already old to begin with. In other words, Fomes officinalis can only survive in old growth forests.

Fomes officinalis is first mentioned as a medicinal mushroom by Greek physician Dioscorides in the Materia Medica of 65 B.C. where it was listed as a remedy for tuberculosis. This makes it the oldest medicinal mushroom in Western literature. [25] Written records and oral traditions from Poland and other areas of Europe suggest that Fomes officinalis was in fact the principal medicinal mushroom of ancient Europe as a whole, not only Greece.

Unfortunately, Agarikon (Fomes officinalis) is no longer a European folk remedy. It may actually be extinct in Europe today, due to its requirement of old growth forests. In fact, it is mostly extinct in North America as well; except for Washington State's last remaining old growth rain forests. Hopefully this last refuge will be preserved for future generations. If not, at least the precious genetic material of this potentially powerful medicinal mushroom can be saved through cultivation. Two U.S. companies that currently cultivate and sell Fomes officinalis are Mushroom Harvest out of Ohio and Paul Stamets' Washington based business Fungi Perfecti.

Historically, Fomes officinalis was used in the form of a poultice to treat skeletal pain and muscle pain, and as a tea for lung conditions such as pneumonia and tuberculosis (Mycobacterium tuberculosis).

Supporting this information is a Polish article from 2001 by K. Grzywnowics titled Medicinal mushrooms in Polish folk medicine. While it was still common in Poland, Fomes officinalis was used to treat lung conditions like coughing and asthma, and skeletal conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, but also open bleeding and infected wounds. In Polish tradition, Fomes officinalis tea was considered a life prolonging elixir. [147]

Native Americans were also aware of the medicinal properties of Fomes officinalis. Oral traditions among certain tribes hold that it was used as a remedy against diseases brought by the Europeans, including smallpox. One such tribe was the Haida of the American Northwest, who even incorporated Agarikon into their spirituality where it was associated with the female creator spirit Raven, and by extension to female sexuality and fertility.

Two of the rare mentions of Fomes officinalis in modern scientific literature have reported that it does produce significant immune enhancement in test subjects. [148, 149]

Finally, it should be noted that in spite of its common name synonyms "Quinine Fungus" or "Quinine Conk," Agarikon does not contain the compound quinine and is not effective in the use against malaria.

How Does Lucid Dreaming Work?

Posted by patrick

By Trevor Albitt

Lucid Dreaming, also known as conscious dreaming is the practice of remaining aware of oneself as well as the fact that one is dreaming while dreaming. While in a dream, you are conscious of the fact that the things you see and experience are only a dream. You can have some control over your dreams once you are able to practice lucid dreaming, unlike in ordinary dreams.

The power of having complete control over the direction of your dreams is something straight out of metaphysical existence. Suddenly, all the limitations you ever felt in life just cease to exist.

Is lucid dreaming as straightforward as all that? Is lucid dreaming something which can be experienced by anyone?

In fact, lucid dreaming is not too difficult a task. If you are determined to learn this powerful medium of expressing your inner desires, there are tried and tested ways of achieving this.

You need to know what you hope to achieve through lucid dreaming. Are you after something specific which can help you with other areas of your life, or do you just want to turn your dreams into a playpen of the imagination? Whatever your reason for wanting to learn lucid dreaming, know your goal and be determined to reach it.

The next step is to learn the techniques of reaching the mental state where lucid dreaming is possible. You'll have to begin learning dream recall, which is simply remembering your dreams. To begin lucid dreaming, you need to first be able to recall every detail of the dreams that you have.

The process is slow, but it can be achieved by maintaining a Dream Recall Register in which you enter as many details as you can remember about your dreams daily. Slowly but surely, you'll realize that you can remember even the most vivid details of your dreams. Periodic reality checks during the course of dreaming will train your mind to be aware in dreams.

Hypnosis can be very helpful for many in preparing their minds to have lucid dreams and can get the process of learning lucid dreaming off to a good head start. In fact, hypnosis can have people remembering their dreams in detail in as few as a few sessions. When you can do this, you are ready to try out lucid dreaming.

You will find at first that you sometimes will awake suddenly during lucid dreams. This is normal. Just recall the events of your dream as you try to fall back asleep and attempt to reenter the dream, steering in the direction that you want it go.

Another good way of inducing lucid dreams is to wake a few hours earlier than usual, then go back to sleep. The dreams you will have in these few hours are the easiest to make into lucid dreams. You may even find yourself unsure whether you have been sleeping or just thinking to yourself as you lay in bed. Just set your alarm for a few hours early, wake and reset the alarm and then go back to sleep and you will be more likely to have lucid dreams.

When learning lucid dreaming, it helps to be well aware of your sleep patterns so you know when the best times for you to have lucid dreams are.

Lucid dreaming can actually help you fight sleeping disorders, like insomnia. Whenever you are struggling to sleep at the normal sleeping hours, you just need to tell your mind that sleeping equals lucid dreaming, and your mind will take care of all the thoughts that are preventing you from falling asleep.

Lucid dreaming used to be something which took a very long time to learn. Recent technological advances, particularly in the field of audio technology have made lucid dreaming something which anyone can easily accomplish.

Many people are finding that the most reliable and certainly quickest way, of having a lucid dream is by listening to binaural beats audios.

Binaural beats audio is the playing of frequencies which are slightly different from each other, one in each ear. This causes a feeling of deep relaxation and brings brain waves into the proper state for lucid dreaming.

Before binaural audio technology, meditation was the method of choice for those wanting to learn lucid dreaming, and this was a process which could sometimes take years to master. Many simply gave up, not having the determination to pursue the practice.

Binaural sound waves, especially in tandem with hypnosis can prepare your mind and allow you to begin lucid dreaming very quickly, sometimes even on the first try!

Buy Panic Puzzle Now?

Posted by patrick

By Brian Benson

There's quite a bit of buzz about Panic Puzzle and if you suffer from panic attacks or anxiety you may be wondering if you should buy panic puzzle. Ive taken a look at the program and can make a couple of comments that may help you decide.

To begin, Panic Puzzle teaches a drug-free approach to not merely cope with panic attacks but to eliminate them. The author, Rich Presta, suffered from panic attacks himself and extensively researched every treatment tried over the last 50 years or so.

Rich didn't have overnight success. Eventually however, he developed a unique program for himself that gave him complete control over his anxious thoughts and eliminate his panic attacks completely. When he shared the with a few other panic attack sufferers he knew, they had equally remarkable success. It didn't take long for the word to get around in that community and Rich was soon besieged by people asking for help. That led them to develop and publish the Panic Puzzle system.

The heart of the program is a 4 step technique that allows you to permanently end anxiety and panic. As part of the program, Rick reveals the things most people do that actually make things worse. He also teaches you how to banish scary, irrational thoughts and quiet your mind.

The program has a lot more detailed information it I'm presenting here. I appreciated the fact that is clearly written and does news a lot of jargon on and pseudo-scientific mumbo-jumbo.

But that really doesn't answer the question of whether or not you should buy Panic Puzzle.

However, imagine for a moment what life would be like if you were free of panic attacks, if you knew for sure you could react with calm and confidence rather than anxiety in any situation? What would that be worth to you?

The Panic Puzzle system is extremely affordable. Most people that suffer from panic attacks have spent much more on just one visit with therapist.

Rich wants to help as many people as you can with this program. But he also knows that not everything works for everyone. Even though is success rate is extremely high (I believe it's over 90%!) this program may not be the answer for everyone. because of this he completely eliminates any risk by offering a no questions asked, no hassle 100% money-back guarantee. Try the program for 60 days. If at anytime in those 60 days you decide it's not for you you can get your money back.

So should you buy Panic Puzzle? Probably. If it works great! If you're one of the few it doesn't help, or you just don't use it, you can get your money back and continue your search for help. You've lost nothing.

Off-Page Search Engine Optimisation News

Posted by patrick

By Jason Kendall

Previously we discussed SEO basics and on-page optimisation. In this article, we're looking at the more crucial Off-Page optimisation. Think of it as appointing votes. If another site places a link to your site then that site has given you a vote of confidence. They're saying, "Look at them - they've got something interesting to say..."

There are 2 main bits to the link. First, the actual URL or web address of the page they are pointing to. Then secondly the keyword phrase. This will be highlighted on the web page. That page can then be seen as receiving one 'vote'. In other words one 'vote' to push the website up the natural listings.

It always works in this way. There's an irrevocable connection between the page pointed to and the anchor text. Or the process can't happen. The Search Engines use the anchor text as an explanation of what the page is all about. It's ESSENTIAL to understand this - Your site will only come up in searches it has anchor texts for.

Thus you'll understand why highlighting 'Click Here...' creates no value in SEO terms. 'Click Here' becomes the keyword phrase we've created a vote for. Whoever is going to type that phrase into the Search Engine? Clearly no-one would!

Hence why the anchor text must be used correctly. For it represents all the phrases your site will be listed for. For your information, the Adobe Reader download site features first for CLICK HERE. Is that because Adobe want to rank for 'click here'? Absolutely not! But think how many web pages include a link to their site with the words click here...

In other words, the SE's use the anchor text phrase to cast a vote for a page. Which is very logical. SE's try to look for relevancy in the same way a real person would. The content of your page isn't necessarily relevant. For if the text that is pointing to your site says Blue Flowers, then that is what you will be listed for! That's how the 'voting system' works.

Obviously, a few other things come into it - Because the SE's also use the page title and wording of the page being pointed at to correlate the results. And many more factors too. (To give you an idea, the spread of the sites linking to yours, and their relevancy to your site).

The bottom line is - to SEO successfully takes a ton of back-links. If these back links come from a variety of sites and have well phrased anchor texts, then so much the better. The quality of a site counts too... A back-link from or would be worth a lot more than a back-link from a local hardware store!

There's quite an art to choosing the right keyword phrases. Do perform sufficient competitor and keyword research before you firm up on your strategy. Fundamentally though: If someone's searching for what you do, which words are they typing into the Search Engine? The answers to this question supply your anchor text and keyword phrases.

However, you can't just use your 'best guesses! Quite often, the phrases you'd expect to see don't rate very highly. We all have different ways of expressing ourselves. You may think to Google "quality mattresses" if you're hoping to sleep better. A different person though may choose to write the words 'I need to sleep better'.

Successful on-line marketing is about more than trusting vague hunches. We can't over-stress the need to TEST and MEASURE all the phrases you're considering using. The number of people visiting your site will be in direct proportion to the work you do in this area. An analogy could be drawn with a listing in the Business Yellow Pages. You're not going to get any enquiries for Car Repairs if you're indexed as a Hairdresser! It is just as crucial to get your keyword analysis correct. Then everyone who's looking for what you do will easily find you.

Body Building Supplements, Basic Tips

Posted by patrick

By Ricardo d Argence

Bodybuilding supplements are taken by weight trainers to build muscle mass and reduce fat. They are also taken to improve a person's performance and make recovery from exercising and training easier.

When you increase the intensity of your training, it's important to take vitamin supplements the be sure your body is getting all of the nutrients it needs during such increased activity. You may not have the energy necessary to do bodybuilding, which is a strenuous exercise without these.

Protein supplements such as creatine and whey protein are necessary to help you with building muscle. You need the basic vitamin and mineral supplements to ensure you do not become deficient in these during training. Vitamins and minerals basically change the food we eat into energy. Vitamins also help with muscle building and burning fat.

Protein supplements such as whey protein, testosterone boosters, amino acids and creatine, supplemented with your training program will assist you in building muscle. To prevent muscle pain and promote muscle building these proteins are essential.

There are ways to help you burn excess fat like carb blockers, supplements that burn fat and appetite suppressants. Antioxidants such as green tea are good for a natural energy boost. There are plenty of energy boosting products and supplements available now to increase your amounts of energy and endurance as you work out.

You must eat balanced healthy meals before anything else. Supplements are necessary because it is difficult to get sufficient nutrients from our overprocessed, over-cooked food choices. Being it is not easy to get the correct nutrition from foods because the foods are over cooked, cooking, as well as other factors, it would be good for us to take supplements.

Vitamins and minerals alone will not build muscle. It takes hard work and dedication to build lean hard muscle mass and lose fat. Taking supplements alone without a good diet and training program will not help you build muscle.

Bodybuilders would be wise to avoid the dangerous practice of using steroids for muscle growth. While they facilitate building muscles rapidly, in addition they do extensive damage. Because tendons and ligaments do not increase at the same rate as muscle; harmful injuries can occur when a bodybuilder abuses steroids.

There can also be side effects including strong aggressiveness as well as affecting essential operations in the body including the liver. No magic bullet can make you fit and trim. It all comes down to effort and commitment. These products can also be dangerous.

Always remember the fact that supplements only work when your diet and your training program are desirable. They are the fundamental to your success. A poor diet and incorrect training cannot be compensated for by supplements, no matter how many you take.

How To Chose An Online School

Posted by patrick

By Michael Fleischner

Finding an online college that helps you achieve your goals takes work. Many people who start searching for online programs feel a bit of stress but you do not have to worry. The most challenging aspect of online learning is deciding that you are going to go back to school. After you have made the decision, the next chapter begins.

One of the best ways to chose an online learning program or course is to complete an online search. For individuals who are not quite sure which type of online college can meet their needs, web based research is recommended. If you are looking for business programs, visit a search engine and and type in online business programs. Then, research each of the results.

Create an evaluation list to measure how each school can meet your needs. An evaluation list is a listing of criteria you can use to find the right school. This list should include the aspects of online learning that are most important to you such as time to graduate, requirements, financial aid, and more.

Be disciplined when you review what each online program has to offer. One way you can do this is by thinking through what is most important to you and then measuring each school against these criteria. Call the school you are thinking of applying to and speak with someone on the admissions team. This gives you a good idea of the school you are evaluating.

If you need help with your application you can work with the college to answer your questions. Online schools and programs are always looking for the right students for their college. As you move through the application process continue to ask more questions and complete your application before submission.

Learning online takes a great deal of organization and discipline. As a result, you will find that most of those enrolled are focused on learning. Keep this in mind when you start your search and consider which programs can meet your needs.

Knowing The Right Doctor For Breast Augmentation

Posted by patrick

By Cheryl L. True

Dreaming of bigger breasts? It all begins with a competent doctor. Before you rush to the operating room, here's what you should learn:

Credentials - Check your surgeon's credentials, including his or her medical license and organizational certificates. Inquire about board certification and be certain your doctor is a fellow of an accredited association.

Professional Experience - Don't be afraid to ask in-depth questions about the doctor's educational background. Learn about his or her professional background and experience with breast augmentation. How many procedures has that person done? How often does that person perform them? The more familiar a surgeon is with breast augmentation, the better the chances that your procedure will go smoothly.

Client Photos - Inquire about before and after pictures of recent patients. While every patient's condition is different, before and after pics can tell you about the surgeon's abilities.

Referrals - A referral is another way to seek a competent cosmetic surgeon. Ask friends or co-workers about their experiences. But always remember that while many plastic surgeons can perform many different kinds of surgeries, only a few are experts in breast augmentation. It makes sense to limit your choices to experts in the field.

Surgery Location - Determine where the surgeon will perform breast augmentation. Will it be done at a local hospital? Is the hospital or surgical center accredited?

The Surgeon - If everything about the surgeon seems okay but you're not at ease, take note of your instinct. Breast augmentation is a delicate operation and you should feel at home with your doctor. In summary, consider these things carefully before making a decision. Have time to go and see as many surgeons as necessary to select the right one for you.

Forget all trace of rudeness. Act properly around her. Be knowledgeable about women's stuff such as fashion, jewelries, and bags.

Little information helps. You do not have to master everything.

Moreover, be aware of what's going on around you. Be up to date with current events as well so you will have a wider scope of topics to talk about. This additional knowledge will make you smarter.

What Time Is It?

Every time you go out on a date, always be on time. Tardiness is a big turn off. Also, women have the tendency to think of the worst. When you are late, many things may run on her pretty head. She may think you are not really interested and excited on going out with her, or may think of you as unreliable.

However, if you agreed to pick her at her place, do not be too early. Give her ample time to finish dressing up. You may arrive with five minutes allowance prior to schedule.

Furthermore, do not forget to throw neat remarks on your date. Women love this. Just make sure that you mean it and that it is not offensive or too much so as not to annoy or irritate her.

Have a two-way conversation. Do not steal all the limelight with the intention of impressing her. Listen to her story as well. You ask questions in order for you to know her more.

Being a good conversationalist also means being a really good listener. As much as you want her to listen to your story, she also wants the same from you. She too has a story to tell, so listen to her. Do not be selfish and talk only about yourself. Hear her voice and know what she wants to say.

Show Me The Money

Nowadays, it is obvious how women have changed so much. They even make an issue on who pays the bill when out on a date. Women are very independent now and wants to take care of most things including date bills. Naturally, guys will not allow this for they are used to the notion that guys should pay the expenditure when dating. Well, if your date insists that she wants to pay, fine. Go along with it but you have to pay at least half of the bill.

Kissing her goodnight is another issue specifically on the first date. Take note that there are women who do not like to be kissed after the date, while there are also those who feel disappointed when the guy does not.

To find out if she wants to be kissed or not, read her gestures. Or, wait if she will initiate.

If you do like the girl and wants to see her again, get her number. However, do not lead her on to believe that you will call her if you have no intentions of seeing or hearing from her again. If you are not truly interested for another date, thank her for a wonderful time, bid her farewell and walk on. On the contrary, if you want to date her again, let her know.

Dating is a whole new experience that can open up wonderful opportunities. With these dating tips and by doing things right, you have greater chances of a happy and memorable dating escapade.

Myspace PUA

Posted by patrick

By Charlie D Jackson

Did you know that PUA skills can transfer over to Myspace? What's more, it is probably easier to pick up girls on Myspace that in real life!

The following tips will make being a Myspace PUA easy.

1. Your profile picture should ideally be of a really hot girl who is smiling in your company! This will build comfort, attraction and trust! You certainly won't come across as some random weirdo trying his luck with a girl he doesn't know on Myspace!

2. Show your cool hobbies through your photos! If you're a surfer or rock climber, you need to show it off. Show that you have a life outside of Myspace!

3. Don't be one of those guys who deletes all trace of their ex girlfriends. You need to show that women find you desirable. This will build comfort and trust!

4. Turn your relationship status off! Never show that you are single as she will know straight away why you are messaging her, making it too easy for her!

5. Be intelligent! Check through your profile for spelling errors and never write like a 12 year old texting her best friend!

6. No matter how good your body is, never show photos where you're posing in front of the mirror topless. This is more common than you may think and is a major turn off!

7. Look through your wall for anything that shows you in a bad or boring way. If your mate is inviting you over for a game of poker then you really should delete it!

8. You need to collect wall posts from hot female friends, ideally asking you out for a drink, coffee or night out! Can anybody collude with you in this? For Myspace PUA reasons, this is extremely important and will make you look trustable!

Common Ways For Overcoming Depression

Posted by patrick

By Carl Clark

When a person who recently experienced something devastating in his life suddenly succumbs into severe loneliness, he might be considered depressed. According to the experts, depression is a persons standard reaction whenever he goes through challenging stages in his life. Some of these challenges involve losing work, death of a relative or close friend, having financial impediments, or relationship break ups. This condition can literally destroy the person suffering from it if left untreated. But if one exerts effort and time in overcoming depression, it is possible that will he could regain his usual self.

But as long as it remains unresolved, the symptoms of depression such as loss of self-confidence, self-esteem, libido or appetite can be very destructive. The causes of depression can be very sophisticated. One can be emotionally, physically, mentally or spiritually depressed. There are no quick answers in overcoming depression for a person must first understand the causes and treat it.

Depression that is emotionally brought about is the most usual depression type. Some examples of this include being physically beaten up, being sexually harassed and having been rejected. Another one is the physical cause, which may result out of a loved ones death or having diseases that are considered terminal. Meanwhile, mental depression is one that focuses more on defective thinking. In this kind of depression, a person completely forgets the silver lining of things and always concentrates on the bad side. With this kind of thinking, there is no doubt that it can lead to severe depression. Last is the spiritual depression, where a faulty relationship with God is present. You cannot actually believe that the physical and mental necessities alone can determine spiritual fulfillment. One should have a beautiful relationship with God if he wants to become whole inside and out. Once you forget about God, spiritual depression might sink in.

Whatever the source, overcoming depression can be achieved if the depressed person knows how to solve his problem. Are you emotionally depressed? If you are, then it is time to be honest and start admitting your faults to God and to yourself. Try to make up for ruined relationships despite your painful experiences. If you are physically depressed, it is best that you schedule a medical check-up. Do things that will help your body retain great physical shape. And if prescribed, you may opt to use anti-depressants.

As for mental causes, the best thing to do is focus on positive thoughts. Even if you find it hard, it is one crucial factor in overcoming depression. Thank God and the people that made great contributions to your happiness. Focus on them, not on your problems. This is more worthwhile than locking yourself in your home and self-pitying. Finally, is the source of depression a spiritual cause? Nothing would ever be complete without God. You cannot find total peace of mind and wholeness if you do not have a relationship with God. Not knowing and loving God can be compared to a person without a soul.

It is natural that overcoming depression will be hard at its initial stages. But the more you try to overcome your depression, the more you will feel better. If you are lonely, confide in someone who will listen to you, regardless of who that person is. It can be a professional therapist, a close friend, a guidance counselor or even your pastor. In overcoming depression, you need three things. These three things are persistence, faith and help. But most importantly, you need to be able to talk to God. Once that you pray for Gods guidance, you can find that you can overcome any obstacle without easily.

Choosing An MCSA Course Compared

Posted by patrick

By Jason Kendall

The Microsoft Certified Systems Administrator course is an ideal qualification for anybody thinking about being a network engineer. So if you already have some understanding but need to formalise your skills with an acknowledged certification, or you are just getting into the IT industry, you'll have the ability to choose a program to suit your requirements. If you're thinking of moving into the world of IT as a beginner, you will possibly have to improve your skill-set prior to having a go at the 4 MCP exams required to pass the MCSA. Search for a training organisation that's able to create an ideal program to help you - it should be possible for you to talk this through with an industry expert to work out your optimum route.

Does job security really exist anywhere now? In the UK for example, where industry can change its mind on a whim, it certainly appears not. Where there are increasing skills deficits and escalating demand though, we generally reveal a fresh type of market-security; driven by conditions of continuous growth, companies are struggling to hire enough staff.

Offering the computing business for example, a recent e-Skills analysis showed a skills shortage in the United Kingdom in excess of 26 percent. Showing that for each 4 job positions that exist across Information Technology (IT), we've only got three properly trained pro's to fill that need. This one reality alone is the backbone of why the UK desperately needs considerably more trainees to join the IT industry. Without a doubt, now, more than ever, really is a critical time to train for the IT industry.

An all too common mistake that students everywhere can make is to choose a career based on a course, and take their eye off where they want to get to. Universities are brimming over with direction-less students that chose an 'interesting' course - instead of the program that would surely get them their end-goal of a job they enjoyed. Never let yourself become part of the group who select a program that seems 'fun' or 'interesting' - and end up with a certification for an unrewarding career path.

You need to keep your eye on where you want to go, and build your study action-plan from that - avoid getting them back-to-front. Stay focused on the end-goal and ensure that you're training for an end-result you'll still be enjoying many years from now. Chat with someone who knows about the sector you're looking at, and who can give you a detailed run-down of the kind of things you'll be doing on a daily basis. Getting all these things right long before starting out on a retraining program will save you both time and money.

So, why should we consider qualifications from the commercial sector rather than traditional academic qualifications taught at schools and Further Education colleges? With university education costs spiralling out of control, plus the IT sector's recognition that accreditation-based training often has more relevance in the commercial field, there has been a great increase in CISCO, Adobe, Microsoft and CompTIA based training courses that educate students for much less time and money. They do this by focusing on the particular skills that are needed (along with a relevant amount of background knowledge,) instead of spending months and years on the background non-specific minutiae that degree courses can often find themselves doing (because the syllabus is so wide).

Just like the advert used to say: 'It does what it says on the tin'. Employers simply need to know where they have gaps, and then request applicants with the correct exam numbers. They'll know then that all applicants can do what they need.

Usually, trainers will provide a shelf full of reference manuals. This isn't very interesting and isn't the best way to go about studying effectively. Where possible, if we can study while utilising as many senses as possible, then we often see hugely increased memory retention as a result.

The latest audio-visual interactive programs with demonstrations and practice sessions will turn you off book-based study for ever more. And they're a lot more fun to do. You'll definitely want a training material demonstration from the school that you're considering. The materials should incorporate demo's from instructors, slideshows and interactive labs where you get to practice.

Purely on-line training should be avoided. Always choose CD or DVD based study materials where possible, so that you have access at all times - it's not wise to be held hostage to your internet connection always being 'up' and available.

Technology and IT is amongst the most exciting and ground-breaking industries you could be involved with. Being up close and personal with technology is to be a part of the massive changes affecting everyone who lives in the 21st century. We're at the dawn of beginning to understand how this will truly impact our way of life. The way we interact with the world will be inordinately affected by technology and the web.

And it's worth remembering that income in the IT sector in the United Kingdom is much higher than in other market sectors, so you will most likely receive significantly more with professional IT knowledge, than you could reasonably hope to achieve elsewhere. The need for professionally qualified and skilled IT workers is assured for the significant future, because of the ongoing growth in IT dependency in commerce and the huge skills gap that remains.

Why Online Bachelors Degrees Are Such A Good Option In Today's Society

Posted by patrick

By John B Maxted

There is no longer a reason for failing to obtain a degree considering the huge availability and options now available with online university degrees. There are now dozens upon dozens of different online bachelors degree courses that are legitimately accredited and carry the same weight as a degree from a traditionalprogram, meaning you can be selective and pursue the exact option you desire.

Unfortunately with these economic conditions the job market is tighter than ever. There are thousands of new people being laid off every day, and they all blend in together making it hard to land a nice new gig. But one way you can stand out from the herd is by pursuing and finishing your bachelors degree. You'll be much more attractive to an employer and you will command more respect and a higher salary.

It's not always easy going back to school though. Especially at a later stage in life, school no longer is the only priority. There are family responsibilities, your current job and much more to deal with. That's what makes online learning so appealing. You can get your degree completely online, providing a far more convenient and flexible experience that will allow you to excel.

The scope of online degree courses has expanded significantly so much so that virtually every common course can be completed online. There are many different colleges offering their courses through a distance learning program so the chance of finding something that suits your needs and objectives has never been better.

There is no longer a need to take an online program just because it is the only one that is available to you. Available courses now include business, arts, sciences, philosophy, engineering and language study courses along with almost every other subject you might be interested in. If you can do it on campus, chances are it is available online too.

There are no age requirements are other factors that inhibit you from enrolling for an online degree program, and it's an extremely convenient option. Unlike with a traditional campus, you won't have to be commuting back and forth, using up time and gas money. You also won't have to attend a local school just because it's close by. As an online student you can enroll in a program from any location with no trouble at all.

Taking an online program allows you to get your work done at the time that works for you. Normally attending a class means you have to show up to a certain place at a certain time on a certain day of the week. But with an online program, as long as you complete your work on time you can do it at any chance you choose, whether that's bright and early Monday morning or if you need to burn the midnight oil over the weekends.

While you can pace yourself, you can also accelerate your learning and finish more quickly than with a traditional on campus program. You can take several majors or minors together or take multiple courses at once to meet all of your obligations and requirements. Doing this, you can finish up a degree in half the time that it would take with a normal program.

Attending on campus courses simply doesn't work for most adults with families and job responsibilities. The good news is that online degree programs are more accepted and more accessible than ever before. You'll get unmatched flexibility and the sky will be the limit with your career and future.

Bodybuilding For Dummies, Beginners And Teenagers

Posted by patrick

By Ricardo d Argence

As with adults, when teens first start a bodybuilding workout program, it's best to work with a trained professional who can help construct a safe and effective routine that will produce results quickly.

Once involved in the sport of bodybuilding, many teen athletes will develop the dedication and discipline that is required to excel in any sport. Teenage bodybuilding also helps to improve confidence levels, self-esteem and work ethics.

The physical advantages that are there in teenage body building are increased muscular strength and endurance, kinesthetic awareness increases, bones become stronger and it reduces the risk of weight related illnesses like high blood pressure and diabetes.

The mental and physical benefits of teenage bodybuilding will continue to payoff long after these athletes have matured into adults. As with most sports, bodybuilding gives teens a focus and it empowers them to better themselves through their own efforts.

For many years, one of the greatest concerns for teenage bodybuilding was that putting growing bodies under the strain of heavy weights over and over would cause premature closure of the growth plates resulting in stunted growth. This theory has never been proven, and if teenage bodybuilding is done properly, under the supervision of trained adults, the chances of any injuries occurring are greatly reduced.

Here's the bottom line: With appropriate supervision and training, teenagers can safely and effectively improve physical health and mental strength through bodybuilding. Every sport has inherent safety issues; however, adult participation and athlete education go in a big way to lessen the risks.

So we can now ask, how do we do the right thing in teen body building? Should teen bodybuilders read the latest bodybuilding magazines? Would it be wiser for a teenage bodybuilder to learn the tricks of the trade from their friends or from a professional? Every other day or every day, which is the better way to train? Rely on supplements? How early should they start working out? Should they focus on endurance training by lifting weights? There are many questions raised and conflicting opinions about teen bodybuilding.

Refer to my website for instant feedback otherwise, watch for this topic to be covered in a future article.

Stock Market 101: Staying Clear Of Professional Traders

Posted by patrick

By Steve Wyzeck

Are you losing money in the stock market because of false breakouts? This article could completely turn around your trading...

This behind closed doors secret about institutional traders will save you from being ambushed. This secret has saved me thousands of dollars and now I'm breaking my silence to show you how to do the same.

Institutional traders use dirty tactics in the stock market that are so bad, they should be illegal.

After reading this article, these dirty tricks might make you angry.

It may even make you want to close this page and forget you saw it...

Read this entire article...

And you will be very thankful you did in the long run.

Because you will learn an entirely new way of looking at the stock market and in particular false breakouts...

First I will talk about what support and resistance lines REALLY are, and then I'll talk about false breakouts.

Seeing why support lines and resistance lines form will help you learn how to better protect yourself against false breakouts.

When most traders buy and sell, they make an emotional commitment to their trade. Their emotions can keep a market trend going, or send it into a reversal.

When stocks fall, a few traders will exit their position and take profits, a few traders will exit their position for a loss, and a few traders will stay in their position and hold on.

Everything you see on a chart is the result of emotions coming from the crowd of people trading that stock.

The Main Reason Support And Resistance Lines Form Is From Pain

If a trader is holding on to a stock and hoping that it is going to come back, and it finally does, she is probably going to sell that stock. Staying in that loser of a stock is just too painful as she laments her entry. This selling to relieve the pain will momentarily stop a rally. These painful memories are precisely why support lines and resistance lines form at certain price levels.

For example, suppose a stocks falls from $30 down to $25 where it trades for a couple of weeks. The longer the $25 level holds, the more that believe $25 is support. Suddenly, after a couple of weeks of trading at $25, the stock falls down to $20. Smart traders will sell quickly and get out at $24 or $23. Amateur traders will hold on and sit through the entire painful decline. Some amateur traders will get out at $20. Other amateur traders who haven't given up at $20 will be the first to sell when the stock gets back up to $25. They will happily jump at the chance to "get out even." Their selling will temporarily stop a rally and form a resistance level.

Resistance Lines and Support Lines Form From The Emotion Of Regret

Traders whose stock screener has alerted them to a stock that has spiked up will feel regret because they missed the move. If the stock retraces, they will quickly buy the stock for a chance at a second move up. This regret then excitement causes buying which forms a support level.

Whenever you work with a chart, draw support and resistance lines across recent tops and bottoms. Expect a trend to slow down in those areas, and use them to enter positions or take profits.

False Breakouts Are Caused By Institutional Traders

When the market rises about resistance and pulls in new buyers and then suddenly reverses and falls back below that resistance, this is called a false breakout.

A false downside breakout happens when a stock falls below support. The bears jump in and short the stock. Suddenly the stock reverses and heads back up retaking the broken support level.

Stocks that have a high percentage of institutional ownership often form false breakouts.

Institutional traders cause these false breakouts to make a ton of money off amateur traders.

Institutional traders can see all the limit orders for a given security. You and I do not have access to this information. They know exactly how many buy orders are waiting to be automatically executed above a certain resistance level.

Institutional traders engage in what is called "running the stops". False breakouts happen when Institutional traders organize hunting parties to run stops.

I will use an example so you can better understand what "running the stops" is. Let us say that a stock is below its resistance level at $10, the buy limit orders come flowing in near $8.50. Institutional traders can see these buy limit orders. They figure a calculation called the liquidity ratio which reveals how much a given stock will go up if all buy limit orders are executed at $8.50. They figure out that the stock will run to $11 if all the buy limit orders at $8.50 are executed. They then short the stock at $10 to force it down to $8.50 (they can do this because they have most of the money and can manipulate a market with their buying or selling power). At $8.50 they cover their short position and go long as the wave of buy orders are automatically executed pushing the stock up to $11. If greedy traders start piling in, the institutional trader will stay long the trade. As soon as the buy orders start drying up, they sell short and the price falls back below $10. That's when your chart shows a false upside breakout.

False breakouts will knock you out of a trade. But don't do what most amateur traders do which is to take a single run at a stock and once stopped out, go bipolar and say the stock is bad and never return. Obviously there was something you fundamentally liked about the stock in the first place and that has not changed. Professional traders will take several runs at a stock until finally nailing down the trade they want.

Is Astral Projection Something You Should Experiment With?

Posted by patrick

By Benjamin Parry

At one time or another most people have heard about doing astral projection. Maybe they have a friend that practices it, or watched some movie about it, or even read a book on the subject. Not all people clearly comprehend that you really can do astral projection and that in fact everyone can do it. You could have easily astral projected without knowing you were doing it at the time.

In order to determine if you have had an astral projection experience or to begin learning to astral project it is important to understand what astral projection is. Simply put astral projection is when your spirit body leaves your physical body. This is something that happens naturally at night when you are asleep, but it is possible for you to do it consciously and control the journey of your spirit body.

You can journey to any desired location when you astral project. You may even have done this as a child as you went to bed, as you grew into adulthood you just forgot how. No time or distance restrictions apply when astral projecting, which makes it possible to travel virtually anywhere. The astral body is what does the traveling when the person's physical body is sound asleep.

What is your astral body? It is a non-corporeal and invisible double of your physical self. It is the manifestation of your subconscious mind and as such represents your core desires and your willpower. What keeps your astral body from leaving permanently and wandering the universe? Your physical body and your astral body have an unbreakable bond referred to as the silver cord.

This cord keeps your two beings connected from the moment you're born until your last breath. As long as you live, your astral body will always come back to your physical form after its travels.

Are you trying to figure out where you go to when you do this astral projection? Well the astral body travels to what is called the astral plane, which turns out is the invisible duplicate of the Earth. This astral plane rapidly vibrates more than the physical Earth does and these particular vibrations go all the way to the Earth's core. There is another belief though that another dimension or alternate reality is the meaning of astral plane. One thing most agree about on this subject though is the fact that the astral plane is composed of several layers.

It is perfectly alright at this stage if you are concerned about possible hazards in doing astral projection. The answer to this is both no and yes. We have already mentioned these facts that the astral body always returns to the physical thanks to the silver cord, also that everyone can do astral projection. You just need to make sure you have your mind right to do this though. This means that your basic thinking skills should be strong and sound, this way you will be able to know exactly what you want and even more important where you want to go.

Let me caution you here, if your mind is in a dark place or not right then it becomes dangerous to astral project. If you are taking drugs or drinking alcohol it is not wise to astral project because you could wind up in some bad places. The lower levels of the astral plane contain the places that are bad.

This is why it is so important that you know exactly what you are doing and where you are planning to go. The goal you are trying to achieve is not just astral projecting, but conscious astral projection where you are aware of what is going on.

There are a number of ways to get prepared to do astral projection prior to starting it. Several professionals can be found to assist you in learning various techniques so that you get to the point where you have better control so that you have a gratifying experience, but on this note people usually rather be in their own house while doing astral projection.

There are several books on this subject and you can locate other aids to help you online. One type of aid is that of hypnosis recordings that are created for astral projections to get you into the desired state of mind. This helps you get totally relaxed along with taking you through that various levels. This is often the preferred method over a professional approach, because you can replay the recording as much as you need to get your subconscious mind to get the message about when it is alright to begin to astral project and leave your physical body.

Something called binaural beats, a new audio recording technique have made it possible for many people to astral project. Two frequencies which are just slightly different are listened to, one in each year. The result is that your brainwaves tune to the proper frequency for astral projecting.

You can expect the first few attempts to not be as successful as you would like them to be. Astral projection takes some practice to perfect it and get the results you want. Remember that you have the ability already, all of us have the ability to do astral projection, we have just over time forgotten the method and just need to tune our own natural ability to do it.

If you are still unsure, that astral projection is something that is known to everyone consider these things. Have you ever felt like you were falling, even though you were standing or laying still, how about dreaming about flying. Often times this is the result of astral projection. The falling feeling usually comes when the two bodies rejoin each other and the sensation of flight comes from actually moving through the astral plane. It is a real ability that everyone has, everyone can use and all it needs is a bit of fine-tuning in order to be able to do it at will.
