THE LAND OF MALAKAND

THE LAND OF MALAKAND MALAKAND DISTRICT, having an area of about 952 square kilometres and a population of over 4.5 lakhs as per population census of 1998 is situated in the lower reaches of the Swat region. Its limits start when the last boundary of Shergarh village in Mardan District touches the outskirts of Sakhakot village as one travels from Peshawar to Swat on the main highway. At the meeting point between Shergarh and Sakhakot, police and custom check posts are functioning and the point is known as Sakhakot Board. Travelling through Sakhakot one enters Dargai village, which is followed by the mountainous terrain of about 15 kilometres known as Malakand Pass or Darrah Malakand much less difficult to cross than before because of a mattled road in it now. Crossing through the same hilly pass you will enter the country’s largest Batkhela Bazar. You proceed onwards till Landakay village where the limits of District Malakand end and District Swat welcomes you.  In ancient history the name of Malakand has appeared as Mala Kund or Mullah Kandao. There exist different versions vis a vis its genesis as “Malakand”. Some historians say that the word Malakand is a combination of two Persian words i.e mala and kund. In Pushto mala means aamail (garland) and kund means ubo (water). They give the impression that when anyone crosses the Malakand Pass the river Swat looks like a mala (aamail).  Another concept is that the name Malakand has been derived from the words Mullah Kandao. Those who believe on this concept take it as combination of two words---Mullah and Kandao. Mullah means a religious saint and Kandao means a lofty place. Some people term the name Malakand as “Mlakandao”

Top 10 Benefits Of Sugarcane Juice

Top 10 Benefits Of Sugarcane Juice 1. The reason behind sugar cane being a popular drink during summers is because it gives an instant kick of energy and quenches the thirst. Sugar cane juice is good source of glucose which as we know, helps to re-hydrates the human body and gives it a boost of energy. So instead of your artificial energy drink, the next time you feel fatigued or dehydrated, consider drinking a glass of cane juice. 2. Even though cane juice tastes very sweet and has high sugar content, it is good for diabetic patients. It contains natural sugar which has low glycemic index that prevents steep rise in blood glucose levels in diabetics, so it can act as a substitute of aerated drinks for them. However people with Type-2 diabetes should consume it in moderation and after consultation with their doctors. [Read:Benefits Of Cherry Juice] 3. Sugarcane juice is considered an alkaline forming food because of the high concentration of calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, and manganese in it.  Diseases like cancer cannot survive in an alkaline environment and that’s why studies show that it is effective in fighting against cancer, especially prostate and breast cancer.

processes sugar cane to produce raw or white sugar.     Processing[edit] The mill house of a cane sugar mill Traditionally, sugarcane processing requires two stages. Mills extract raw sugar from freshly harvested cane. Sometimes “mill white” sugar for local consumption is produced at this stage using sulfur dioxide to inhibit colour forming reactions during evaporation. This is done to stabilize the sugar juices. The aim of sugar processing – both beet and cane is to minimize the formation of colour and effectively remove non-sugar impurities. [1] Sugar refineries, often located nearer to consumers in North America, Europe, and Japan, then produce refined white sugar, which is 99 percent sucrose. These two stages are slowly merging. Increasing affluence in the sugar-producing tropics increased demand for refined sugar products, driving a trend toward combined milling and refining. Milling[

From fighting dandruff and drunkenne... by Jan Baz

From fighting dandruff and drunkenness to treating coughs and cuts, honey is a powerhouse of health benefits. There is something undeniably enchanting about honey; the product of flower nectar transformed by bees, as if by alchemy – but in fact through the far less-poetic act of regurgitation – into a sweet, golden elixer.Honey has held sway over humans since ancient times. But aside from honey’s seductive color and flavor, it has some scientific superpowers that add to its appeal. Honey has an unusual chemical composition, one which makes it keep indefinitely without spoiling; as is seen whenever ancient pots of honey, still perfectly preserved, are found during excavations of early Egyptian tombs. It is uniquely low in moisture and extremely acidic, making it a forbidding environment for bacteria and microorganisms. On top of that, bees add an enzyme, glucose oxidase, to it that creates hydrogen peroxide as a byproduct. According to the National Institute of Health, honey is hygroscopic, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and has remarkable debriding action. Who knew? With this bonanza of properties, honey has been used for millennia as a medicinal remedy. the earliest recorded use of honey as a curative comes from Sumerian clay tablets, which convey that honey was used in 30 percent of prescriptions at the time. The ancient Egyptians used honey regularly to treat skin and eye problems; as did the Greeks, Romans, and a number of other cultures.   And ever since – along with being a favored gift to the gods and employed for sweetening cakes and drinks– honey has been used to treat that which ails us. It has been hailed as a fix for everything from scrapes to cancer. The following are some of honey’s best-known health benefits; whether confirmed by science or passed down through folk tradition, they prove honey to be as efficacious as it is delicious. 1. Soothes coughs It is found that buckwheat honey outperformed the cough suppressant,  (DM), in calming nighttime coughs in children and improving their sleep.  the children who received two teaspoons of honey 30 minutes before bed, coughed less frequently, less severely and were less likely to lose sleep due to the cough when compared to those who didn't get honey.

Research continues on the vast health benefits of resveratrol, found in purple or red grapes. Here are some of the amazing healing benefits of resveratrol: Power Up Your Weight Loss Exciting research led by MaryAnne DellaFera, PhD at the University of Georgia found that resveratrol (particularly when combined with soy isoflavones) works on the body in two ways to significantly assist with weight loss efforts: 1) it dramatically reduces cells’ ability to store fat by about 130 percent; and 2) causes fat cells to disintegrate at a rate 246 percent higher than normal. Protect Your Heart In research, resveratrol demonstrated the ability to improve the dilation of blood vessels, which may allow blood to flow more easily through blood vessels.  It has also been shown to relax the walls of the blood vessels, making their diameter larger, thereby lowering blood pressure, and allowing a higher volume of blood to flow through all areas of the body, delivering increased oxygen and nutrients to the body’s cells.  Another study found that just 10 mg of supplementary resveratrol resulted in a dramatic reduction in heart-attack risk factors.

One of the best bargains in your local grocery sto

One of the best bargains in your local grocery store is plain old white vinegar. You can get a 32 ounce jug of it (half a gallon) for about $1.50 and it has a multitude of uses beyond the edible ones (like pickles and salad dressings). Here are fifteen uses for white vinegar, most of which I use myself.   Toilet cleaner Got a toilet bowl that’s difficult to clean? Before you go to bed, dump a cup of vinegar in the bowl, then close the lid. I usually spread the vinegar around the bowl a bit with a brush to coat the sides. In the morning, the whole bowl will be really easy to brush. I can’t remember the last time I bought actual toilet bowl cleaner.   Refrigerator cleaner I take a gallon of warm water in a bowl, add about two cups of vinegar, bust out a rag, and use that solution to clean the inside of the refrigerator. It does a great job of cleaning things up without much effort at all. If something’s really bad, I’ll put a tablespoon or so of pure vinegar right on it, let it sit for a bit, then give it a scrub.       Sunburn Is your skin a bit sunburnt? Just rub some vinegar on the affected area and it’ll feel much better really quickly. If it’s bad, you can reapply the vinegar a few times.   Kitchen drain odors If your kitchen drain has an odd smell, pour a cup of white vinegar down

Roughly 70 percent of an adult’s body is made up of water. At birth, water accounts for approximately 80 percent of an infant’s body weight. A healthy person can drink about three gallons (48 cups) of water per day. Drinking too much water too quickly can lead to water intoxication. Water intoxication occurs when water dilutes the sodium level in the bloodstream and causes an imbalance of water in the brain. Water intoxication is most likely to occur during periods of intense athletic performance. While the daily recommended amount of water is eight cups per day, not all of this water must be consumed in the liquid form. Nearly every food or drink item provides some water to the body.

Face Whitening Tips from Beauty Experts  In the present days where most of the people are busy with their lifestyles, taking care of the skin becomes a huge issue. Concerned about our readers, we conducted an expert roundup among beauty experts and bloggers. We received wonderful tips for face whitening that we compiled below for your knowledge. 1. Iva:  I must start off by saying that I am not a huge believer in whitening and don’t ever recommend using harsh chemical’s on your skin. For me it is all about brightening your complexion and about taking care of your skin. 1. Use an AHA or a BHA exfoliator regular, depending on your skin type. This will help brighten your skin, keep it clear broom blemishes and will take off any dead skin cells. 2. Always use SPF, but especially if you are doing any whitening treatments or any type of AHA or BHA treatments at home. I don’t whiten my skin but I am never out without a SPF 50 on my face. Make sure that your SPF protects from both UVA and UVB rays. I love the Alpha H Daily Essential Moisturiser SPF 50, the Clinique Super City Block Oil-Free Daily Face Protector SPF 40 or the Clarains UV Plus HP SPF 40. 3. Listen to your skin. We get focused on one problem area or a “problem” that we see that we don’t take a step back to see the broader picture. If your skin is flaking than no matter how bright it is you need to step up your routine. Even oily skin can be dehydrated. I see this lot. Use oil free products but make sure that you are adding back lots of moisture into your skin. Use a serum designed especially for rehydrating oily skin. 2. Sherrie Berry: Skin Again has developed a formula called ‘Youth that uses a triple action, natural and safe approach to face whitening: 1. An extract from a plant called Rumex occidentalis which grows in the northern Canadian Prairies region.  Rumex extract has a strong inhibitory effect on tyrosinase, one of the main enzymes involved in the pigmentation process. In vitro and clinical data have demonstrated that Rumex extract reduces skin pigmentation for a more uniformed and lighter skin complexion. It also has outstanding results in the reduction of the appearance

In fact, as much as a quarter of the U.S. population experiences chest pain that is not related to the heart. Chest pain may also be caused by problems in your lungs, esophagus, muscles, ribs, or nerves, for example. Some of these conditions are serious and life threatening. Others are not. If you have unexplained chest pain, the only way to confirm its cause is to have a doctor evaluate you. You may feel chest pain anywhere from your neck to your upperabdomen. Depending on its cause, chest pain may be: ·         Sharp

What to Do If You Have Chest Pains

What to Do If You Have Chest Pains Most chest pain is not related to the heart. The following are clues that your chest pain is probably not caused by a heart problem: ·         You have pinpointed pain (you can point to the exact spot that hurts). ·         The pain gets worse when you take a deep breath; or, not breathing for a few seconds reduces the pain significantly. ·         The pain is related to moving or pressing on a specific part of the chest wall, neck, or shoulder. ·         Antacids relieve the pain. ·         The pain only lasts a few seconds. When to Call Your Doctor If you're not sure if your symptoms are serious or decide not to call 911, call our Consulting Nurse Service right away. They can help you decide if your pain is an emergency or not. If you have chest pain that doesn't go away, you need to see your doctor for evaluation. Even chest pain that isn't caused by heart disease could be a warning sign of other problems in the aorta (the large blood vessel that leads out of the heart), the lungs, or digestive organs. When to Call Your Doctor Immediately Call your doctor right away if you have: ·         Mild chest pain or discomfort, and you're responsible for the lives of others (such as a pilot, bus driver, or sole caregiver for small children). ·         Chest pain that isn't relieved with medicine, happens with less activity, or happens at rest when it used to come when you did activity. ·         Chest pain or discomfort for the first time with symptoms similar to those of coronary artery disease. Let your doctor know if you have: ·         A history of chest pain or discomfort caused by coronary artery disease (angina). ·         One or more risk factors for heart disease.

Basketball by Jan Baz

Basketball Basketball is a sport played by two teams of five players on a rectangular court. The objective is to shoot a ball through a hoop 18 inches (46 cm) in diameter and 10 feet (3.0 m) high mounted to a backboard at each end. Basketball is one of the world's most popular and widely viewed sports.[1] A team can score a field goal by shooting the ball through the basket during regular play. A field goal scores three points for the shooting team if the player shoots from behind the three-point line, and two points if shot from in front of the line. The team with the most points at the end of the game wins, but additional time (overtime) is issued when the game ends with a draw. The ball can be advanced on the court by bouncing it while walking or running or throwing it to a team mate. It is a violation to lift or drag one's pivot foot without dribbling the ball, to carry it, or to hold the ball with both hands then resume dribbling. As well as many techniques for shooting, passing, dribbling and rebounding, basketball teams generally have player positions and offensive and defensive structures (player positioning). Traditionally, the tallest and strongest members of a team are called a center or power forward, while slightly shorter and more agile players are called small forward, and the shortest players or those who possess the best ball handling skills are called a point guard or shooting guard History Main article: History of basketball Creation The first basketball court: Springfield College In early December 1891, Canadian Dr. James Naismith,[2] a physical education professor and instructor at the International Young Men's Christian Association Training School[3] (YMCA) (today, Springfield College) in Springfield, Massachusetts was trying to keep his gym class active on a rainy day. He sought a vigorous indoor game to keep his students occupied and at proper levels of fitness during the long New England winters. After rejecting other ideas as either too rough or poorly suited to walled-in gymnasiums, he wrote the basic rules and nailed a peach basket onto a 10-foot (3.05 m) elevated track. In contrast with modern basketball nets, this peach basket retained its bottom, and balls had to be retrieved manually after each "basket" or point scored; this proved inefficient, however, so the bottom of the basket was removed,[4] allowing the balls to be poked out with a long dowel each time. Basketball was originally played with a soccer ball. The first balls made specifically for basketball were brown, and it was only in the late 1950s that Tony Hinkle, searching for a ball that would be more visible to players and spectators alike, introduced the orange ball that is now in common use. Dribbling was not part of the original game except for the "bounce pass" to teammates. Passing the ball was the primary means of ball movement. Dribbling was eventually introduced but limited by the asymmetric shape of early balls. Dribbling only became a major part of the game around the 1950s, as manufacturing improved the ball shape. The peach baskets were used until 1906 when they were finally replaced by metal hoops with backboards. A further change was soon made, so the ball merely passed through. Whenever a person got the ball in the basket, his team would gain a point. Whichever team got the most points won the game.[5] The baskets were originally nailed to the mezzanine balcony of the playing court, but this proved impractical when spectators on the balcony began to interfere with shots. The backboard was introduced to prevent this interference; it had the additional effect of allowing rebound shots.[6] Naismith's handwritten diaries, discovered by his granddaughter in early 2006, indicate that he was nervous about the new game he had invented, which incorporated rules from a children's game called "Duck on a Rock", as many had failed before it. Naismith called the new game "Basket Ball".[7] The first official game was played in the YMCA gymnasium in Albany, New York on January 20, 1892 with nine players. The game ended at 1–0; the shot was made from 25 feet (7.6 m), on a court just half the size of a present-day Streetball or National Basketball Association (NBA) court. By 1897–1898 teams of five became standard. College basketball See also: College basketball The 1899 University of Kansas basketball team, with James Naismith at the back, right. Basketball's early adherents were dispatched to YMCAs throughout the United States, and it quickly spread through the USA and Canada. By 1895, it was well established at several women's high schools. While the YMCA was responsible for initially developing and spreading the game, within a decade it discouraged the new sport, as rough play and rowdy crowds began to detract from the YMCA's primary mission. However, other amateur sports clubs, colleges, and professional clubs quickly filled the void. In the years before World War I, the Amateur Athletic Union and the Intercollegiate Athletic Association of the United States (forerunner of the NCAA) vied for control over the rules for the game. The first pro league, the National Basketball League, was formed in 1898 to protect players from exploitation and to promote a less rough game. This league only lasted five years. Dr. James Naismith was instrumental in establishing college basketball. His colleague C.O. Beamis fielded the first college basketball team just a year after the Springfield YMCA game at the suburban Pittsburgh Geneva College.[8] Naismith himself later coached at the University of Kansas for six years, before handing the reins to renowned coach Forrest "Phog" Allen. Naismith's disciple Amos Alonzo Stagg brought basketball to the University of Chicago, while Adolph Rupp, a student of Naismith's at Kansas, enjoyed great success as coach at the University of Kentucky. On February 9, 1895, the first intercollegiate 5-on-5 game was played at Hamline University between Hamline and the School of Agriculture, which was affiliated with the University of Minnesota.[9][10] The School of Agriculture won in a 9–3 game. In 1901, colleges, including the University of Chicago, Columbia University, Dartmouth College, the University of Minnesota, the U.S. Naval Academy, the University of Colorado and Yale University began sponsoring men's games. In 1905, frequent injuries on the football field prompted President Theodore Roosevelt to suggest that colleges form a governing body, resulting in the creation of the Intercollegiate Athletic Association of the United States (IAAUS). In 1910, that body would change its name to the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). The first Canadian interuniversity basketball game was played at the YMCA in Kingston, Ontario on February 6, 1904, when McGill University visited Queen's University. McGill won 9–7 in overtime; the score was 7–7 at the end of regulation play, and a ten-minute overtime period settled the outcome. A good turnout of spectators watched the game.[11] The first men's national championship tournament, the National Association of Intercollegiate Basketball tournament, which still exists as the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) tournament, was organized in 1937. The first national championship for NCAA teams, the National Invitation Tournament (NIT) in New York, was organized in 1938; the NCAA national tournament would begin one year later. College basketball was rocked by gambling scandals from 1948 to 1951, when dozens of players from top teams were implicated in match fixing and point shaving. Partially spurred by an association with cheating, the NIT lost support to the NCAA tournament.

In the days before widespread television coverage of professional and college sports, the popularity of high school basketball was unrivaled in many parts of America. Perhaps the most legendary of high school teams was Indiana's Franklin Wonder Five, which took the nation by storm during the 1920s, dominating Indiana basketball and earning national recognition.

Unidentified flying object by Jan Baz

Unidentified flying object An unidentified flying object, or UFO, in its most general definition, is any apparent anomaly in the sky that is not identifiable as a known object or phenomenon. Such anomalies may later be identified, but depending on the evidence or lack of evidence, such an identification may not be possible, generally leaving the anomaly unexplained. While stories of unexplained apparitions have been told since antiquity, the term "UFO" (or "UFOB") was officially created in 1953 by the United States Air Force (USAF) to serve as a catch-all for all such reports. It was stated that a "UFOB" was "any airborne object which by performance, aerodynamic characteristics, or unusual features, does not conform to any presently known aircraft or missile type, or which cannot be positively identified as a familiar object." As originally defined, the term was restricted to those fraction of cases which remained unidentified after investigation, with USAF interest being for potential national security reasons and/or "technical aspects." (See Air Force Regulation 200-2.) During the late 1940s and through the 1950s, UFOs were often referred to popularly as "flying saucers" or "flying discs". The term UFO became more widespread during the 1950s, at first in technical literature, but later in popular use. UFOs garnered considerable interest during the Cold War, an era associated with a heightened concern for national security. Various studies have concluded that the phenomenon does not represent a threat to national security nor does it contain anything worthy of scientific pursuit (e.g., 1953 CIA Robertson Panel, USAF Project Blue Book, Condon Committee). Culturally, the phenomenon has often been associated with extraterrestrial life or government-related conspiracy theories, and has become a popular theme in fiction. Photograph of an alleged UFO in New Jersey, taken on July 31, 1952 Terminology The Oxford English Dictionary defines a UFO as "An unidentified flying object; a 'flying saucer'." The first published book to use the word was authored by Donald E. Keyhoe.[1] The acronym "UFO" was coined by Captain Edward J. Ruppelt, who headed Project Blue Book, then the USAF's official investigation of UFOs. He wrote, "Obviously the term 'flying saucer' is misleading when applied to objects of every conceivable shape and performance. For this reason the military prefers the more general, if less colorful, name: unidentified flying objects. UFO (pronounced Yoo-foe) for short."[2] Other phrases that were used officially and that predate the UFO acronym include "flying flapjack," "flying disc," "unexplained flying discs," "unidentifiable object," and "flying saucer."[3][4][5] The phrase "flying saucer" had gained widespread attention after the summer of 1947. On June 24, a civilian pilot named Kenneth Arnold reported seeing nine objects flying in formation near Mount Rainier. Arnold timed the sighting and estimated the speed of discs to be over 1,200 mph (1,931 km/h). At the time, he described the objects' shape as being somewhat disc-like or saucer-like, leading to newspaper accounts of "flying saucers" and "flying discs." (For details, see Kenneth Arnold UFO sighting.) In popular usage the term UFO came to be used to refer to alien spacecraft.[1] and because of the public and media ridicule associated with the topic, some investigators prefer to use such terms as unidentified aerial phenomenon (or UAP) or anomalous phenomena, as in the title of the National Aviation Reporting Center on Anomalous Phenomena (NARCAP).[6] Studies Studies have established that the majority of UFO observations are misidentified conventional objects or natural phenomena—most commonly aircraft, balloons, noctilucent clouds, nacreous clouds, or astronomical objects such as meteors or bright planets with a small percentage even being hoaxes.[note 1] Between 5% and 20% of reported sightings are not explained, and therefore can be classified as unidentified in the strictest sense. While proponents of the extraterrestrial hypothesis (ETH) suggest that these unexplained reports are of alien spacecraft, the null hypothesis cannot be excluded that these reports are simply other more prosaic phenomena that cannot be identified due to lack of complete information or due to the necessary subjectivity of the reports. While UFOs have been the subject of extensive investigation by various governments and although a few scientists have supported the extraterrestrial hypothesis, almost no scientific papers about UFOs have been published in peer-reviewed journals.[7] There was, in the past, some debate in the scientific community about whether any scientific investigation into UFO sightings is warranted with the general conclusion being that the phenomena was not worthy of serious investigation beyond a cultural artifact.[8][9][10][11][12][13][14] The void left by the lack of institutional scientific study has given rise to independent researchers and groups, including the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena (NICAP) in the mid-20th century and, more recently, the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON)[15] and the Center for UFO Studies (CUFOS).[16] The term "Ufology" is used to describe the collective efforts of those who study reports and associated evidence of unidentified flying objects.[17] UFOs have become a prevalent theme in modern culture,[18] and the social phenomena have been the subject of academic research in sociology and psychology.[7] Early history Unexplained aerial observations have been reported throughout history. Some were undoubtedly astronomical in nature: comets, bright meteors, one or more of the five planets that can be seen with the naked eye, planetary conjunctions, or atmospheric optical phenomena such as parhelia and lenticular clouds. An example is Halley's Comet, which was recorded first by Chinese astronomers in 240 BC and possibly as early as 467 BC. Such sightings throughout history often were treated as supernatural portents, angels, or other religious omens. Some current-day UFO researchers have noticed similarities between some religious symbols in medieval paintings and UFO reports[19] though the canonical and symbolic character of such images is documented by art historians placing more conventional religious interpretations on such images.[20] On January 25, 1878, the Denison Daily News noted that John Martin, a local farmer, had reported seeing a large, dark, circular object resembling a balloon flying "at wonderful speed." Martin, according to the newspaper account, said it appeared to be about the size of a saucer, the first known use of the word "saucer" in association with a UFO.[21] In April 1897 thousands of people reported seeing "airships" in various parts of the United States. Many signed affidavits. Scores of people even reported talking to the pilots. Thomas Edison was asked his opinion, and said, "You can take it from me that it is a pure fake."[22][23] On February 28, 1904, there was a sighting by three crew members on the USS Supply 300 miles (483 km) west of San Francisco, reported by Lieutenant Frank Schofield, later to become Commander-in-Chief of the Pacific Battle Fleet. Schofield wrote of three bright red egg-shaped and circular objects flying in echelon formation that approached beneath the cloud layer, then changed course and "soared" above the clouds, departing directly away from

A brief history of cricket by Jan Baz

A brief history of cricket  Click here for some more detailed aspects of cricket history The origins of cricket lie somewhere in the Dark Ages - probably after the Roman Empire, almost certainly before the Normans invaded England, and almost certainly somewhere in Northern Europe. All research concedes that the game derived from a very old, widespread and uncomplicated pastime by which one player served up an object, be it a small piece of wood or a ball, and another hit it with a suitably fashioned club. How and when this club-ball game developed into one where the hitter defended a target against the thrower is simply not known. Nor is there any evidence as to when points were awarded dependent upon how far the hitter was able to despatch the missile; nor when helpers joined the two-player contest, thus beginning the evolution into a team game; nor when the defining concept of placing wickets at either end of the pitch was adopted. Etymological scholarship has variously placed the game in the Celtic, Scandinavian, Anglo-Saxon, Dutch and Norman-French traditions; sociological historians have variously attributed its mediaeval development to high-born country landowners, emigré Flemish cloth-workers, shepherds on the close-cropped downland of south-east England and the close-knit communities of iron- and glass-workers deep in the Kentish Weald. Most of these theories have a solid academic basis, but none is backed with enough evidence to establish a watertight case. The research goes on. What is agreed is that by Tudor times cricket had evolved far enough from club-ball to be recognisable as the game played today; that it was well established in many parts of Kent, Sussex and Surrey; that within a few years it had become a feature of leisure time at a significant number of schools; and - a sure sign of the wide acceptance of any game - that it had become popular enough among young men to earn the disapproval of local magistrates.

HISTORY by Jan Baz

HISTORY The history of the development of modern badminton is a very long and complex one. Below is a brief account of the history of the game. Origins of the Game The sport of badminton has its origins in ancient civilisations in Europe and Asia.  The ancient game known as battledore (bat or paddle) and shuttlecock probably originated more than 2000 years ago. In the 1600s Battledore and Shuttlecock was an upper class pastime in England and many European countries. Battledore and Shuttlecock was simply two people hitting a shuttlecock backwards and forwards with a simple bat as many times as they could without allowing it to hit the ground. Contemporary Badminton   A contemporary form of badminton  - a game called ‘Poon’, was played in India in the 1800s where a net was introduced and players hit the shuttlecock across the net. British

A History of Golf since 1497

A History of Golf since 1497 The Birth Of Golf Golf as we know it today originated from a game played on the eastern coast of Scotland in the Kingdom of Fife during the 15th century. Players would hit a pebble around a natural course of sand dunes, rabbit runs and tracks using a stick or primitive club.  Some historians believe that Kolven from Holland and Chole from Belgium influenced the game. The latter was introduced into Scotland in 1421. However while these games and countless others are stick and ball games, they are missing that vital ingredient that is unique to golf - the hole. Whatever the argument, there can be no dispute that Scotland gave birth to the game we know as golf today.  During the mid-15th century, Scotland was preparing to defend itself against an English invasion. The population's enthusiastic pursuit of golf and soccer to the neglect of military training (archery primarily) caused the Scottish parliament of King James II to ban both sports in 1457. The ban was reaffirmed in 1470 and 1491 although people largely ignored it. Only in 1502 with the Treaty of Glasgow was the ban lifted with King James IV (James 1 of England) himself taking up the sport. Golf's status and popularity quickly spread throughout the 16th century due to it's royal endorsement. King Charles I popularised the game in England and Mary Queen of Scots, who was French, introduced the game to France while she studied there. Indeed the term 'caddie stems from the name given to her helpers who were the French Military, known in french as cadets.  The premier golf course of the time was Leith near Edinburgh. Indeed King Charles I was on the course when given the news of the Irish rebellion of 1641. Leith was also the scene of the first international golf match in 1682 when the Duke of York and George Patterson playing for Scotland beat two English noblemen.

Golf Goes International

Golf Goes International The British Empire was at it's pinnacle during the 19th century. Indeed the phrase 'the sun never sets on the empire' was coined to reflect Britain's world-wide influence. Most of the early golf clubs outside the British Isles and America were formed throughout the Commonwealth.  The first golf club formed outside Scotland was Royal Blackheath (near London) in 1766. However golf is believed to have been played there since 1608. The first golf club outside Britain was the Bangalore, India (1820).  Others were the Royal Calcutta (1829), Royal Bombay (1842), Royal Curragh, Ireland (1856), the Pau, France (1856), the Adelaide (1870), Royal Montreal (1873), Cape Town (1885), St Andrew's of New York (1888) and Royal Hong Kong (1889). Some say that the South Carolina Golf Club, Charlestown of 1786 precedes all of these.  The Victorian Industrial Revolution brought with it many social and economic changes. The growth of the railways gave birth to the mass tourism industry. For the first time, ordinary people could explore the country as day-trippers or weekend visitors. Golf clubs popped up all over the country and

Birth Of the Modern Game

Birth Of the Modern Game The dawn of the 20th century brought with it several technological innovations. The first was the Haskell one piece rubber cored ball of 1900, which practically guaranteed an  extra 20 yards. Grooved-faced irons were introduced in 1902. In 1905 William Taylor invented the first dimpled ball. Arthur Knight introduced steel-shafted clubs in 1910 though hickory was widely used for another 25 years. Within the space of a decade, golfers could hit further and more accurately than ever before using equipment which was relatively cheaply mass-produced.  The Professional Golfers Association (PGA) of America was formed in 1916 and initially consisted of a winter calendar. However by 1944 the tour was played throughout the year and consisted of 22 events.  In 1921, the R&A imposed a limit on the size and weight of the golf ball which began a 30 year split between the European and Commonwealth game and the US game (regulated by the USGA). Most of the differences were resolved in 1951 when both parties agreed to a common set of rules. However the golf ball issue was not settled until 1988 !. Today golf worldwide is regulated jointly by the R&A and the USGA. They hold a summit every four years where they agree alterations to the published official rules of golf.  The rift was accompanied by the introduction of the Ryder Cup matches in 1927. Initially the Europeans were represented by golfers from Britain and Ireland. The Americans with their wealth of talent won every event between 1935 and 1985 with the exception of 1957. Only since

14 Yoga Exercises For Slimming Your ... by Jan Baz

14 Yoga Exercises For Slimming Your Face   Don’t we crave for fine sculpted cheekbones when we see Angelina Jolie, Kiera Knightley or our very own ‘Heroine’ Kareena Kapoor? Look no further! You can now flaunt well-defined cheekbones.   There is a special makeup technique called ‘contouring‘, which gives you the illusion of higher cheekbones. Is it possible to contour our face for a sculpted look every time we go out? Here we introduce you some simple yet effective facial exercises for a lean, sculpted and younger looking face. Yes, face yoga is a promising technique that involves series of exercises which help to tone the face just like yoga for body tones and relaxes the body. Here is a brief illustration on face exercises:   A wide and perfect smile makes your face look even more beautiful. But as soon as laugh lines appear around your mouth, your beauty tones down by two times. As the body muscles need a lot of exercise, similarly our face muscles also needs a workout. The muscles of the face start loosening out as we age. We try a lot of methods like cosmetic treatment, botox, chemical peels and wrinkle fillers. Buying hoards of anti-wrinkle creams and applying them day after day won’t give you any permanent results. You stop applying them and the wrinkles re-appear. Doesn’t the idea of exercise for face sound so much more effective and appealing. Facial Exercises For Women: Yoga For Face There are some very simple face yoga exercises that reduce the appearance of wrinkles and gives you a younger looking face. Face Exercise 1: This simple exercise will work on your orbicularis oris muscle (Muscle around your mouth), zygomatic arch (cheekbones) and modiolus muscle (Muscle on either side of mouth). ·         Close your mouth pressing your lips together and blow air under your upper lip. Hold at the count of ten. ·         Transfer the air to your left cheek and again hold for another 10 counts. ·         Now transfer air to your right cheek and hold for another 10 counts. ·         Repeat this transferring of air from one cheek to the other for 10-15 times. This exercise is quite easy and very effective to delete the chubbiness of your cheek. Face Exercise 2: Another simple exercise to reduce the chubbiness and tone your facial muscles.   ·         Inhale air deeply with your mouth. ·         Transfer the air from one side of the cheek to another as if you are swishing mouthwash inside your mouth. Face Exercise 3: Vent your lips in ‘O’ shape and blow air out of your mouth. Face Exercise 4: This exercise is called the ‘Smiling fish face’.   ·

The Mobile Money Revolution That’s Transforming th

The Mobile Money Revolution That’s Transforming the Developing World   Mobile devices are indispensable to our everyday lives. We use them to connect with friends, schedule appointments, surf the Web and countless other purposes, including shopping and, yes, handling money. But for many people, especially in developing countries, mobile devices represent a powerful economic lifeline. The use of cell phones to conduct financial transactions has surged in the past few years, and for some people, their phone is now their primary means of handling money. This mobile money trend is having a major impact on regional economies, particularly those in the developing world. The Groupe Speciale Mobile Association (GSMA) estimates there are 2.5 billion people worldwide who are ‘unbanked,’ meaning they have limited access to traditional banking services, and the majority live in lower- to middle-income countries. Yet more than 1 billion of these people have mobile phones, which can enable them to send and receive currency payments, transfers and credit funding, and gain access to a secure bank account. Last year, there were over 60 million active mobile money accounts across 84 countries, with the majority of services based around Sub-Saharan Africa. In Kenya alone, billions are exchanged in mobile money transactions each month, and nearly 60 percent of the country’s adult population uses mobile money accounts.   Kenya’s M-Pesa service, which enables users to deposit money and send balance information through SMS technology, is a good example of the rapid spread of mobile money. The number of agents distributing M-Pesa recently reached 79,000, and the service is now expanding across other regions with large under-banked populations, including Europe, which

This is how Google is killing the Web by Jan Baz

This is how Google is killing the Web On our Desktops & Smart-devices, everything is just one touch away. So why on the browser do we solely rely on Search? For the past 7 years I have been on an ongoing search to present the best new sites, services & apps to my readers. Every week I find at least one site that blows my mind. I get excited about how this service could evolve into something big, it’s potential to grow into a billion dollar business, and how it can change the face of the Internet. But you won’t find these great sites on the first page of Google results—you might not find them on the first 10. As a result, these services, some of them genuinely life-changing, get lost in the dark recesses of the Internet. Even when you find these gems, you probably won’t think to access them the next time you log on. Their biggest challenge is finding a large enough audience to create a habit around their product. Creating a habit around a product is limited by the way we browse the Web. Take a moment and think about the browser user experience. It hasn’t changed much in the past 20 years and since the days of Netscape, we’ve been confined to a search box. We need to know exactly what we’re looking for, either through a search or by typing in the exact web address. This experience is based on an intention, one that is transformed into a search query. But what happens when we don’t have a specific intention in mind? These moment of non-intention define our daily Internet routine. How many times a day do you procrastinate with one of the big services available to you? Whether it’s Facebook or Twitter, NYTimes or HuffPost

What’s the catch? You can’t purchase one—not yet, anyway. Jan Schroers, who teaches mechanical engineering and materials science at Yale University, developed the technology for the cases in his lab and wants to bring the product into mass production. “This material is 50 times harder than plastic, nearly 10 times harder than aluminum, and almost three times the hardness of steel,” Schroers says. “It’s awesome.” For years, academic and commercial institutions have sought an effective technique for shaping these bulk metallic glasses (BMGs)—a new generation of strong-yet-pliable materials.

How to Lose Weight in 10 Days at Home part 1

how to lose weight in 10 days at home part 2   1. Increase Water Intake (the water therapy): Water is a very important factor in any weight reduction program. Consumption of water cleanses the toxins from the body in the form of urine. Drink about 4 to 5 liters of water every day. Different bodies have different requirements of water. A simple way to track how many liters of water your body needs in a day is to divide your weight by 20. The result you will get from this equation will give you the liters of water you must consume every day. For example: If you weigh 70 kilos, then dividing it by 20 gives 3.5 as result. So you must drink a minimum of 3.5 liters of water every single day. This is an essential step for weight loss in 10 days. 2. Green Tea Instead of Coffee or Tea: Drinking a cup of hot green tea every morning on an empty stomach can cleanse the toxins in your body. It can also help reduce the problem of constipation. Green tea has low calories and starting your day with it instead of tea or coffee is very good tip for weight loss. 3. Hot Water with Lemon and Honey: Hot water with lemon and honey is a great trick for losing weight. To make: ·         Mix a spoon of lime juice and half a spoon of honey to hot or lukewarm water. ·         Drink this every morning on an empty stomach to aid your weight loss in 10 days. 4.

TINY NEEDLES COULD TARGET DRUGS TO FRONT OF EYE

TINY NEEDLES COULD TARGET DRUGS TO FRONT OF EYE Microneedles almost too small to be seen with the naked eye may offer the best way to treat glaucoma and corneal neovascularization, two of the world’s leading eye diseases. The microneedles range in length from 400 to 700 microns and could provide a new way to deliver drugs to specific areas within the eye relevant to these diseases. By targeting the drugs only to specific parts of the eye instead of the entire eye, researchers hope to increase effectiveness, limit side effects, and reduce the amount of drug needed. A microneedle used to inject glaucoma medications into the eye is shown next to a liquid drop from a conventional eye dropper. (Credit: Gary Meek/Georgia Tech) Glaucoma affects about 2.2 million people in the United States and is the second leading cause of blindness worldwide. The goal is to develop time-release drugs that could replace daily administration of eye drops. A painless microneedle injection made once every three to six months—potentially during regular office visits—could improve treatment outcomes by providing consistent dosages which could overcome patient compliance issues. In the second disease, corneal neovascularization, corneal injury results in the growth of unwanted blood vessels that impair vision. To treat it, researchers developed solid microneedles for delivering a dry drug compound that stops vessel growth. “The power of microneedles for treating eye conditions is the ability to target delivery of the drug within the eye,” says Mark Prausnitz, professor in the School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology. “We are developing different microneedle-based systems that can put the drug precisely into the part of the eye where it’s needed. In many cases, we hope to couple that delivery with a controlled-release formulation that would allow one application to treat a condition for weeks or months.”

LIVING NEAR PESTICIDES IN PREGNANCY UPS AUTISM RIS

LIVING NEAR PESTICIDES IN PREGNANCY UPS AUTISM RISK Pregnant women living in close proximity to chemical pesticide application had a two-thirds higher risk of having a child with autism spectrum disorder or other developmental delay, according to a new study. The associations were stronger when the exposures occurred during the second and third trimesters of the women’s pregnancies. The large, multisite California-based study examined associations between specific classes of pesticides, including organophosphates, pyrethroids, and carbamates, applied during the study participants’ pregnancies and later diagnoses of autism and developmental delay in their offspring. It appears online in Environmental Health Perspectives. “This study validates the results of earlier research that has reported associations between having a child with autism and prenatal exposure to agricultural chemicals in California,” says lead study author Janie F. Shelton, a University of California, Davis, graduate student who now consults with the United Nations.  “While we still must investigate whether certain sub-groups are more vulnerable to exposures to these compounds than others, the message is very clear: women who are pregnant should take special care to avoid contact with agricultural chemicals whenever possible.” California is the top agricultural producing state in the nation, grossing $38 billion in revenue from farm crops in 2010. Statewide, approximately 200 million pounds of active pesticides are applied each year, most of it in the Central Valley, north to the Sacramento Valley and south to the Imperial Valley on the California-Mexico border. While pesticides are critical for the modern agriculture industry, certain commonly used pesticides are neurotoxic and may pose threats to brain development

History of mobile phones by Jan Baz

History of mobile phones Although most of us feel like we couldn't live without our mobile phones, they've not really been in existence for very long. In fact, mobile phones as we know them today have only been around in the last 20 years. When was the first mobile phone invented? Mobile phones, particularly the smartphones that have become our inseparable companions today, are relatively new. However, the origin of the mobile phone goes back to 1908 when a US Patent was issued in Kentucky for a wireless telephone. The story of the modern mobile phone really begins in the 1940s when engineers working at AT&T developed cells for mobile phone base stations.   The very first mobile phones were not really mobile phones at all. They were two-way radios that allowed people like taxi drivers and the emergency services to communicate. Instead of relying on base stations with separate cells (and the signal being passed from one cell to another), the first mobile phone networks involved one very powerful base station covering a much wider area. These early mobile phones are often referred to as 0G mobile phones, or Zero Generation mobile phones. Most phones today rely on 3G or third-generation mobile technology.

Too much protein in middle age ‘as bad as smoking’

Too much protein in middle age ‘as bad as smoking’ Two new studies conclude that low protein intake may hold the key to a long and healthy life, at least until old age. They also emphasize the need to examine not only calories when deciding what constitutes a healthy diet, but also where those calories come from – such as whether protein is animal or plant-based. Another key finding is the suggestion that while a high-protein diet may in the short term help people lose weight and body fat, in the long term it may harm health and reduce lifespan. Both studies are published in the journal Cell Metabolism. The first study was led by Valter Longo, a professor at the University of Southern California, who counts longevity and cell biology among his areas of expertise.He and his colleagues showed that high protein consumption is linked to increased risk of cancer, diabetes and death in middle-aged adults, although this was not the case for older adults who may benefit from moderate protein consumption. Also, the effect is much reduced when the protein comes from plant sources.The second study was led by Stephen Simpson, a professor at the University of Sydney in Australia, whose group works at the interface of physiology, ecology, and behavior. From studying mice, he and his fellow authors concluded that diets low in protein and high in carbohydrates are linked to the longest lifespans. Both studies suggest it is not just calories, but also diet composition – particularly in terms of amount and type of protein – that may determine the length and health of a lifespan. Prof. Longo says:

10 Forgotten Truths to Help You Get ... by Jan Baz

10 Forgotten Truths to Help You Get Through Hard Times “That which does not kill us makes us stronger.” –Friedrich Nietzsche The wisest, most loving, and well rounded people you have ever met are likely those who have known misery, known defeat, known the heartbreak of losing something or someone they loved, and have found their way out of the depths of their own despair.  These people have experienced many ups and downs, and have gained an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, understanding and a deep loving wisdom.  People like this aren’t born; they develop slowly over the course of time. Angel and I have worked with thousands of these incredible people over the past decade, both online and offline, through various forms of coaching.  In many cases they came to us feeling stuck and lost, unaware of their own brilliance, blind to the fact that their struggles have strengthened them and given them an upper hand in this crazy world. Truth be told, when hard times hit, and the challenges you face are great, you can either let your situation define you, let it destroy you or let it strengthen you.  The choice is yours to make. In today’s article I want to remind you of a few powerful, yet easily forgotten truths that will help you choose wisely and grow stronger even through the hardest times… 1.  Pain is part of life and love, and it helps you grow. So many of us are afraid of ourselves, of our own truth, and our feelings most of all.  We talk about how great the concepts of life and love are, but then we hide from both every day.  We hide from our truest feelings.  Because the truth is life and love hurt sometimes, and the feelings this brings disturbs us. We are taught at an early age that all pain is evil and harmful.  Yet, how can weever deal with real life and true love if we’re afraid to feel what we really feel?  We need to feel pain, just as we need to feel alive and loved.  Pain is meant to wake us up.  Yet we try to hide our pain.  Realize this.  Pain is something to carry willingly, just like good sense.  Because you can only learn how strong you are when being strong is the only choice you have. It’s all in how you carry the things that don’t go your way.  That’s what matters in the end.  Pain is a feeling.  Your feelings are a part of you – your own reality.  If you feel ashamed of them, and hide them, you’re letting the lies of insecurity destroy your reality.  You should stand up for your right to feel pain – to endure it – to own your scars – to deal with the realities of life and love, as you grow into the strongest, wisest, truest version of yourself. 2.  Mindset is half the battle. It’s okay to have down days and tough times.  Expecting life

THIS FUNGUS TURNS ANTS INTO ‘ZOMBIES’

THIS FUNGUS TURNS ANTS INTO ‘ZOMBIES’ After the “zombie ant fungus” kills a victim, it grows a stalk called the stroma, which protrudes from the ant cadaver. A large round structure, the ascoma, forms on the stroma. Infectious spores then develop in the ascoma and are released onto the forest floor below, where they can infect foraging ants from the colony. “After climbing vegetation and biting the veins or margins on the underside of leaves, infected ants die, remaining attached to the leaf postmortem, where they serve as a platform for fungal growth,” says lead author Raquel Loreto. Previous research shows that the fungus, Ophiocordyceps camponoti-rufipedis, controls the behavior of carpenter ant workers—Camponotus rufipes—to die with precision, says Loreto, a doctoral candidate in entomology, Penn State’s College of Agricultural Sciences.

15 Simple Tricks To Make Your Hair Grow Faster

15 Simple Tricks To Make Your Hair Grow Faster Such long and lustrous hair. It is dream that most have and it is not unachievable. Whether you are suffering from hair growth problems or envious of the long and shiny locks of your favorite movie star or want to get out of a disastrous haircut, we have the best solutions for all these hair issues!   The Science Behind Hair Growth 1. An average human has 1,00,000 hair follicles, each of which produce 20 hairs in a lifetime. 2. Each of our hair strands undergoes 3 stages: Anagen phase, Catagen phase and Telogen phase. About 90% of the hair on your scalp now is in the growth phase or the Anagen phase which usually takes around 5 years. During the Catagen phase, the hair follicle shrinks. This happens to 1% of hair strands and takes about a month’s time. And finally in the Telogen phase, the hair rests or falls off. This happens to around 10 – 15% of the hair strands and this period last upto 5 months. 3. The rate of hair growth varies from person to person, but the average rate is about 15 centimeters or 6 inches per year. 4. Each hair strand completes its cycle and wears off. A person loses about 50 to 100 of hair strands per day. On the day when you wash your hair, you end up losing up to 250 strands. But if you lose more than this range, you suffer from severe hair fall problem and should consult a dermatologist.   Causes Behind Hair Fall 1. Genetics: Genetics is one of the major causes of hair fall. Studies show that 60% of the people inherit the problem of acute hair fall. And sadly there are no treatments to cure hair fall caused by heredity. However you can take care of your mane to delay the process and make it healthy and shiny. 2. Improper Diet: A healthy diet is very important not only for our body, but also for skin and hair. Our scalp cells needs proper nourishment and nutrition. People who follow low protein diet can suffer protein deficiency which leads to massive amount of hair shedding. Deficiency of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients can cause hair fall and thinning of hair. 3. Prolong Diseases: Hair loss caused due to diseases or illness is mostly temporary.It is cured once the body returns to good health. Typhoid, flu, fungus infection on the scalp (ringworm) etc causes hair fall. Thyroid imbalance is another condition which leads to temporary hair fall, as both underactive and over active thyroid glands is responsible for hair loss. However it can easily be cured by proper medication from the physician. 4. Stress: Our present day lifestyle has long working hours and a hectic schedule and stress is the subversive effect. Our scalp cells, like other body cells, need relaxation and rejuvenation. Therefore practice yoga and meditation to reduce the effects of stress and thus reduce hair fall. 5. Cosmetics: Use of chemical laden cosmetics causes severe hair fall.These chemicals clog your scalp pores by forming a layer over it. Most of the shampoos and conditioners contain harsh chemicals

Epilepsy - A General Introduction

Epilepsy - A General Introduction   About 1 in 30 people in the UK develop epilepsy at some stage in their life. It most commonly starts in childhood and in people aged over 60. However, epilepsy can begin at any age. In general, seizures are well controlled by treatment in about 4 in 5 cases. There are different types of epilepsy. Other leaflets in this series include:'Epilepsy - Partial Seizures', 'Epilepsy - Childhood Absence Seizures', 'Epilepsy - Could It Be?', 'Epilepsy - Living With Epilepsy', 'Epilepsy - Treatments', 'Epilepsy - Tonic-clonic Seizures', 'Epilepsy - Dealing With a Seizure', 'Epilepsy - Contraception/Pregnancy Issues', 'Epilepsy and Sudden Unexpected Death'. What is a seizure? A seizure is a short episode of symptoms caused by a burst of abnormal electrical activity in the brain. Typically, a seizure lasts from a few seconds to a few minutes. (Older words for seizures include convulsions and fits.) The brain contains millions of nerve cells (neurons). Normally, the nerve cells are constantly sending tiny electrical messages down nerves to all parts of the body. Different parts of the brain control different parts and functions of the body. Therefore, the symptoms that occur during a seizure depend on where the abnormal burst of electrical activity occurs. Symptoms that may occur during a seizure can affect your muscles, sensations, behaviour, emotions, consciousness, or a combination of these. The different types of seizures are discussed below. What is epilepsy? If you have epilepsy, it means that you have had repeated seizures. If you have a single seizure, it does not necessarily mean that you have epilepsy. About 1 person in 20 has a seizure at some time in their life. It may be the only one that occurs. The definition of epilepsy is more than one seizure. The frequency of seizures in people with epilepsy varies. In some cases there may be years between seizures. At the other extreme, in some cases the seizures occur every day. For others, the frequency of seizures is somewhere in between these extremes. Epilepsy can affect anyone at any age. Around 456,000 people in the UK have epilepsy. Epileptic seizures arise from within the brain. A seizure can also be caused by external factors which may affect the brain. For example, a high fever may cause a febrile convulsion. Other causes of seizures include: lack of oxygen, a low blood sugar level, certain drugs, poisons, and a lot of alcohol. Seizures caused by these external factors are not classed as epilepsy. Different types of epilepsy and seizures Seizures are divided into two main types - generalised and partial. (There are also other uncommon types of seizure.) If you have epilepsy you usually have recurrences of the same type of seizure. However, some people have different types of seizure at different times. Generalized seizures These occur if the abnormal electrical activity affects all or most of the brain. The symptoms tend to be general and involve much of your body.  There are various types of generalised seizure: ·         A tonic-clonic seizure

EPILEPSY part 2

EPILEPSY part 2 How is epilepsy diagnosed?\ You should see a doctor if you have had a possible seizure or similar event. Sometimes it is difficult for a doctor to confirm that you have had a seizure. The most important part of confirming the diagnosis is the description of what happened. Other conditions can look like seizures - for example, faints, panic attacks, collapses due to heart problems, breath-holding attacks in children. Therefore, it is important that a doctor should have a clear description of what happened during the event. It may be that a person who witnessed your seizure may be able to give a more accurate description of what happened during your seizure.  There is no one test to confirm a diagnosis of epilepsy. However, tests such as brain scans, electroencephalogram (EEG - brainwave recordings) and blood tests may help to make a diagnosis. ·         A brain scan - usually a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computed tomography (CT) scan - shows the structure of different parts of the brain. This may be performed in some people. ·         EEG. This test records the electrical activity of the brain. Special stickers are placed on various parts of the scalp. They are connected to the EEG machine. This amplifies the tiny electrical messages given off by the brain and records their pattern on paper or computer. The test is painless. Some types of seizure produce typical EEG patterns. However, a normal recording does not rule out epilepsy, and not all EEG abnormalities are related to epilepsy. ·         Blood tests and other tests may be advised to check on your general well-being. They may also look for other possible causes of the event. Although helpful, tests are not foolproof. It is possible to have epilepsy with normal test results. Also, if an abnormality is found on a brain scan, it does not prove that it causes seizures.  However, tests may help to decide if the event was a seizure, or caused by something else. It is unusual for a diagnosis of epilepsy to be made after one seizure, as the definition of epilepsy is recurrent seizures. For this reason a doctor may suggest to wait and see if it happens again before making a firm diagnosis of epilepsy. What are the treatments for epilepsy? Medication Epilepsy cannot be cured with medication. However, with the right type and strength of medication, the majority of people with epilepsy do not have seizures. The medicines work by stabilising the electrical activity of the brain. You need to take medication every day to prevent seizures. Deciding on which medicine to prescribe depends on such things as: your type of epilepsy, your age, other medicines that you may take for other conditions, possible side-effects, whether you are pregnant or if planning a pregnancy. One medicine can prevent seizures in most cases. A low dose is usually started at first. The dose may be increased if this fails to prevent seizures. In some cases two medicines are needed to prevent seizures. The decision when to start medication may be difficult. A first seizure may not mean that you have epilepsy, as a second seizure may never happen, or may occur

Rajan is one of the few elephants in Havelock that can swim, so when he is not dragging timber in the forest he is used as a tourist attraction. The relationship between the mahout and his elephant usually lasts for their entire lives, creating an extremely strong tie between the animal and the human being. Staying in Asia since many years has given me the opportunity to get close to wildlife on many occasions.

Taken at 1:22 a.m. on March 11, 2008. My wife and I arrived at the 528 Causeway in Cape Canaveral with our Sony 100a DSLR. With a low, solid, overcast of clouds covering the launch site, they launched. I pushed the shutter and started a 15 second time-lapse exposure! Disaster!!! I ripped the camera off of the tripod, spun the program wheel to anything else and started to squeeze the shutter. I was only able to take two photos as the shuttle Endeavour lifted into the overcast. This is the second one. At Hok Tjing Bio, a Chinese Temple in Palembang South Sumatra, Indonesia, the photographer framed the shot at a precise moment, with the reflection, and the position of the passing dog in the middle of the tiger pictorial on the temple’s wall.

On a recent visit to a small town on the Brazilian

On a recent visit to a small town on the Brazilian and Bolivian border, I found this man tending to a field of burning debris and vegetation at dusk. Something as mundane as this may seem a daily, routine chore for one man, while offering a symbolic portrait of tranquil repose to another. These are two wild stallions from the McCullough Peak’s herd of wild horses, which is located just outside of Cody, Wyoming. This image was taken in September 2008 with a Canon Rebel XSI and a long telephoto lens. I expected them to fight but they went back to grazing after a minute of posturing. The peaks area is pretty desolate, with little in the way of water supply and a lack of trees. The main staple for their grazing is sagebrush. This is a shot of three eagles fighting over a fish in Homer, Alaska, from March 2008. You can see the fish at the top of the image flying by itself, but it was caught in its fall by another eagle. This photograph was taken during a vacation in northern India in January 2007, in the city of Rishikesh. While walking on the streets in midtown, I saw a monkey stealing a mirror from another monkey and decided to follow it. After a while the monkey thief stopped on a tree and started to look in the mirror, giving me the opportunity to take this picture.

How to Make Sky Lanterns

How to Make Sky Lanterns   Floating sky lanterns are a common sight in many Asian countries. Though their design may seem complex, you can easily learn how to make sky lanterns on your own. Make a wish, light the sky lantern and let it float up to the heavens. Method 1 of 6: Create the candle 1 Tie the fabric into a tight knot. Trim the end pieces so they are approximately 1" (2.5cm) on each side. The end pieces will become the wicks of the candle that will propel your sky lantern much as a flame propels a hot air balloon. 2 Center the two 24" (60cm) pieces of florist's wire over the knot. The two pieces should be perpendicular to each other with their midpoints overlapping on top of the knot. 3 Wrap the wires around the knot, and twist them tightly to make them secure.The four wire ends should be approximately 9" to 10" (23 to 25cm) long on each side so that they are long enough to reach the lantern's bamboo frame. Set the wire-wrapped knot aside. 4 Place the candle over a lighter or other open flame until the wax melts down into a liquid state. You should also place a plate or a tray beneath the candle to catch the wax as it melts. 5 Place the knot into the hot, melted wax and let it soak for three to five minutes. 6 Remove the newly created wick from the wax. As it cools, the wax will harden. 7 Wrap the aluminum-foil strip around the knot in the center of the wick. Twist the ends of the foil strip around the metal wire so that they cover the wire completely. Method 2 of 6: Construct the bamboo frame and add the candle 1 Cut three bamboo skewers in half lengthwise using either a razor blade or a utility knife. Run the split bamboo through the flame of a candle while subtly bending it; this will make the bending job easier and you should be able to form a a full circle in less than five minutes. 2 Line the split bamboo up end to end on a table to make a single long strip.The bottom end of one skewer should overlap with the top end of another skewer to create a 1" (2.5cm) overlapping connection point. 3 Secure the overlapping connection points together with non-flammable tape. Bring the right and left tips of the long strip together. Again, create a 1" (2.5cm) overlap with the tips. Secure the tips together with tape to make a circle. 4 Tape the ends of the foil-wrapped wires that protrude from the wick to opposite sides of the bamboo frame.

10 Unusual Things That Can Actually Make You Happy

10 Unusual Things That Can Actually Make You Happy I’m currently doing #100happydays and that’s what prompted this article. All the below things, at some point, have made me unhappy. However, being happy is a much more fun alternative. Bearing that in mind, I thought I’d explore how some things that seemed overwhelmingly and unequivocally negative could actually be positive. Here we go: 1. Traffic Could you look at it as annoying? Sure. An inconvenience? Absolutely. But, yes, this has made me happy. And no, I’m not insane (okay, debatable). I love listening to music in my car and singing and rapping along, and traffic gives me time to listen to more songs. I’ve been in traffic on roads that have beautiful views either side. I looked outside and just appreciated it. The more standstill the traffic, the better. I can switch off from driving for a bit and chill. How often have I gotten angry over traffic? A fair few times. Being happy about it is more fun. Trust me. 2. When it rains The weather seems to have a real effect on people’s happiness even though it’s out of our control. When it rains, I can sit inside and read. Watch Netflix. Catch up on my group chats. Spend time with my parents. And, one of my favourites, write articles. 3. When people complain I used to find this so annoying. And I still do, to an extent. The more I hear it, the more I cringe. I just can’t believe how negative some people are. They can’t be enjoying life. They just can’t. To jump straight to the negative like that is unhealthy. And just plain boring. However, it does make me realise how grateful and happy I am. I would love to be able to help everyone whose first reaction is to complain (and maybe one day I’ll find a way), but, for now, I’ll just let it help me be even happier. 4.

Crazy Ants Annihilate Crabs With Chemical Warfare

Yellow crazy ants especially are not to be trifled with as they apply chemical warfare by spraying formic acid into their victims’ eyes, thus blinding them, before attacking. Red crabs in particular have in recent years borne the brunt of the crazy ants’ persecution. No wonder yellow crazy ants are regarded as one of the top 100 most invasive species in the world… Attack the crab!     Says Laurie Corbett, an environmental consultant tackling the crazy ant problem on Christmas Island: “[The formic acid] makes the crabs blind, they start frothing at the mouth, and they die in as little as two hours. … The ants then eat their insides out.” Yikes!

Abandoned Railways, Trains, Stations, Tunnels & Br

Abandoned Railways, Trains, Stations, Tunnels & Bridges The railways that sprang from the Industrial Revolution revolutionised transport, and journeys that had once taken months could now be completed in weeks or even days.  Industry benefitted from the efficient movement of goods, and passenger services allowed people to commute greater distances while fostering a new means of travel and tourism.  But nothing lasts forever, and today the railways are a ghostly shadow of their former glory, offering a wealth of historic abandonments that have been documented by urban explorers.   While rail travel remains an important means of transport for goods and people, it was upstaged by cars and planes during the twentieth century and never quite recovered.  Depleted natural resources, and the longterm inviability of many industries in a technologically advancing world, have contributed to the network of abandoned railway lines winding their way across the continents.

Architecture: 10 Unsettling Rel... by Jan Baz

Architecture: 10 Unsettling Relics of the Third Reich   While the emotional and cultural toll that Hitler’s Third Reich took on Europe and indeed the entire globe is still being felt today, this is not the only legacy left by Nazi Germany. The architecture and building projects undertaken during Hitler’s time as Fuhrer was nothing short of staggering, with numerous ambitious infrastructure and building projects being completed by the Nazi regime right up until its eventual defeat in 1945. Germany may be moving in a very different direction now but there are still structures dotted all over the country that hail from that dark passage in global history. This article explores 10 examples of Nazi architecture reflected in surviving wartime buildings. Führer Headquarters, Wolfsschanze, now in Poland This structure was one the most important command headquarters of World War Two. Lying on the Eastern Front, the Wolfsschanze, or ‘Wolf’s Lair’, was built in 1941 in an area that was specially selected because of its seclusion and potential camouflage. There are only a few skeletal remains of what was once a huge complex that housed over 2000 Nazi personnel and support staff at the peak of the war. This once immense fortress is now being taken over by nature with moss, grass and other flora obscuring the ruins of one of the primary command centres for arguably the most devastating political and military movement in living memory. Though many of the buildings were destroyed by retreating German forces in 1945, there is still evidence of the vast scale of the headquarters, including the ruins of the complex’s own movie theatre. Thüringen Underground Factories and Tunnels In order to protect themselves from damage incurred by allied shelling in the later stages of the war, Hitler’s Third Reich started work on a series of underground armament factories and other sites crucial to the war effort. This relocation led to several tunnel mines in Thüringen being transformed into subterranean military facilities. The ‘Central Works’ were where those interned in concentration camps were forced to produce military equipment. Until recently collapsing structures and other dangers hindered exploration but the entrance to Tunnel A has now been reopened. It may have been previously closed due to flooding and collapse, but that didn’t prevent some urban adventurers from infiltrating the site, and it certainly didn’t hinder looters who stole large quantities of materials from the tunnels in the 1990s.

10 Abandoned Sea Forts, Towers & Anti-Submarine Pl

10 Abandoned Sea Forts, Towers & Anti-Submarine Platforms   There are few lonelier places on earth than a sea fort, especially those manned by only a handful of people at a time. Sea forts have long served as defensive positions, as lighthouses, and as early warning stations; while built, they’re out of necessity prime, peak examples of state-of-the-art engineering. As they age, though, they’re often more trouble than they’re worth to repair, and are left to the elements. This article explores 10 abandoned and repurposed sea forts, anti-submarine towers and other offshore military platforms. 10. Solent Forts, England The Solent Forts were also known as Palmerston’s Follies. They were built in the late 1800s off the coast of Portsmouth as part of England’s maritime defense network. At the time of their conception, Louis Napoleon was coming to power and emerging not only as Emperor Napoleon III, but also taking the head of a massive army. The government, understandably concerned, commissioned the four forts as early defense. No Man’s Land, St. Helens (above), Spitbank and Horse-Sands were constructed, but were incredibly short-lived. A fifth fort, Ryde Sand, wasn’t even completed when the area was found to be too unstable to safely support the fort. Advances in steam power and other technologies made it difficult to keep the forts updated to the point where they were a viable defense system. By the time they were completed, the original threat that they had been built to combat was done. They were used through World War Two mainly as signal and warning facilities, as they weren’t built for the heavy artillery that a fully armed fort would require. They were also used for the seizure of French ships off the coast, but they were ultimately decommissioned in 1956. Recently, the forts are being given new life. The Horse-Sands Fort is being remodeled and restored to its original condition, with plans to open it as a museum. Spitbank is being converted into a luxury hotel, and No Man’s is getting a face-lift and being turned into a banquet facility, dining hall, spa and cabaret. 9. Maunsell Sea Forts, England The Maunsell Sea Forts were named for their designer, Guy Maunsell, and they were a crucial part of Britain’s defense network during World War Two. Seven forts – four naval and three army – were built in the Thames estuary, and several can still be seen on the horizon today. The Army sea forts were a series of seven towers, all connected by walkways to a central control tower. Built beginning in 1942 as anti-aircraft defense, the forts were armed with both gun and searchlight towers. Constructed on land and floated out to sea where they were installed, they were a massive success, and plans were drafted to build more of the towers. Those plans were scrapped in 1952, however, although the towers are still considered among the most successful of the early ancestors of today’s off-shore structures. Of the three Army forts – Shivering Sands (top), Red Sands (above) and Nore – only two are still standing after the collapse of Nore begun by a 1953 storm that damaged the structure and compromised its integrity; it was later hit by a ship, and ultimately dismantled after the deaths of four civilian caretakers. The naval forts had two main supports and anti-aircraft guns mounted on the top. Rough Sands, Sunk Head, Tongue Sands and Knock John were all abandoned by the end of the 1940s, but had a brief – and rather weird – period of occupation after that. From 1965 to 1967, the sea forts were, perhaps appropriately, the home of pirate radio stations. The stations, which originally started in fishing boats, were headquartered on all four of the otherwise abandoned naval towers – after the Marine Broadcasting Act was passed, they were replaced by Radio 1 and Radio 2. Knock John is still in an incredibly good state today. Its guns were only removed in 1992, and all ladders have also been removed from the fort, making it impossible to board – largely due to the idea that it might have been used for smuggling. Originally, there were 49 sea forts planned for construction on the River Thames, and another 38 on the Mersey. 8. Texas Towers, United States

"Hey John," he says, "You like to cook..." then he looks me up and down, "And it's no secret that you like to eat, so tell me, when was the last time you had a bad roasted chicken?" "I guess that some have been better than others," I said, "but I don't remember a bad one." "Me neither. But I keep seeing articles about roast chicken and the writers always start out by saying how many dismal chickens they've had." "I hope their friends don't see these articles...at least not the ones that've been inviting them to dinner." "Hadn't thought of that." Frank mused, "Anyway, even though these writers sound like authorities, you've got to wonder how long it's been since they roasted a chicken. Take this chef I was listening to on the radio. He was explaining how the dark meat takes so much longer than the white meat and starts talking about protecting the breast with a foil tent. Then, get this, he starts describing how to make one. Just what I need, an origami lesson on the radio! Anyway, that proved it." "I don't follow." I said. "Don't you people pay attention? I mean, have you looked at the breasts on these birds?" "I guess not." I said. "We're talkin' big! I swear, with these modern birds it almost takes longer to cook the breast than it does to cook the legs. So that chef...I bet if we sent a hidden camera into his restaurant we'd find out that he doesn't even roast the chickens...that one of his gophers has been doing the job for years. But I've got another beef." "You mean chicken." "No, beef...well, whatever. All these articles treat chicken like it was the second coming of Thanksgiving. Now I like chicken, but who serves roast chicken to company? Or even a big family? When was the last time you cooked a chicken for a crowd?"

Visit The Abandoned Ghost Metro Stations Of Paris

Visit The Abandoned Ghost Metro Stations Of Paris (Photo Gallery) The Paris Metro is has more than a century old history. This transit system is used by more than 4 million users daily and is an iconic symbol of the Parisian life. Here, we are going to explore a unique aspect of the Paris metro system. We are going to take you to visit the abandoned and forgotten underground metro stations.   1. Croix-Rouge station  In 1939 as the World War II raged, many railway workers left Paris. Due to the staff shortages, only 85 metro stations remained operational in Paris. A few years later, most of these stations were operational again. However the station of the Croix-Rouge, located on the metro line 10, has never again been reused because it is too close to the stations Sevres-Babylone and Mabillon. 2. The Invalides station The station of Invalides on the metro line 8 remains unused and is closed to the public. 3. Martin Nadaud station  This station was on the line 3, in the twentieth arrondissement of Paris. In the 60s, the station Gambetta was remodeled and merged with the station

Vomiting: Causes And Treatment

Vomiting: Causes And Treatment   Vomiting is one health problem where advice for children and adults is completely different. If you are an adult with vomiting, you have a much lower risk of dehydration, and usually can tell by thirst and other symptoms when you are becoming dehydrated. Adults are also better at noticing signs in themselves that some other illness is causing the vomiting. But children dehydrate quickly (especially if they have diarrhea too). And they often can tell you about other symptoms they might be having. Causes of vomiting also differ based on age. Vomiting, common known as “throwing up” may result from many causes, ranging from gastritis or poisoning to brain tumors, or elevated intracranial pressure. The feeling that one is about to vomit is called nausea. It usually precedes, but does not always lead to vomiting. Most people think vomiting is controlled by the stomach, but a special area of your brain called the “ vomiting center” is really in charge of throwing up.

Breast Cancer by Jan Baz

Breast Cancer Definition Cancer is a disease characterized by the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells.Breast cancer is any type of malignant (cancerous) growth in the breast tissue. Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women and affects approximately one out of every eight women in the U.S. Description There are several types of breast cancer, but the common types are ductal carcinoma (occurring in 85 - 90 percent of the cases) and lobular carcinoma (occurring in about eight percent of the cases). Ductal carcinoma arises in the ducts (the passageway which carries milk from the milk-producing lobules to the nipple). Lobular carcinoma arises in the lobules (part of the lobe which ends in dozens of tiny bulbs that can produce milk). Causes No one knows exactly why a normal breast cell becomes a cancerous one, and there is probably no single cause. It is thought, however, that breast cancer results from a combination of risk factors. These risk factors can be grouped into several categories: Hereditary risk: It has long been known that women whose mothers or sisters had breast cancer have a higher risk of developing the disease themselves. Recently, it has been discovered that breast cancer can develop when a woman inherits a breast cancer susceptibility gene from one of her parents. The most common of these genes are the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes. These genes account for about 10 percent of all breast cancer cases and in families that have these genes, the risk of breast cancer can be very high. However, it is important to realize that 85 - 90 percent of breast cancers and NOT hereditary, and that all women need to be screened for breast cancer, even if no one in their families have ever had the disease. Hormonal risk factors: The female hormones estrogen and progesterone are involved in breast cancer formation. For example, it is known that women who start to menstruate at an early age, or who have a late menopause have a higher risk of breast cancer than women who do not. It is also known that women who take hormone replacement therapy aftermenopause have an increased risk of breast cancer. Many studies have also been done looking at the risk of taking birth control pills. To date, these studies have not demonstrated an increased risk of breast cancer associated with use of these medications. Age: Breast cancer becomes much more common as women grown older. Gender: Most breast cancer occurs in women, although about 12,000 cases of breast cancer occur in men in the United States each year. Diet and Exercise: Studies have shown that women who exercise are less likely to develop breast cancer than sedentary women. Studies have also shown that women who gain weight after menopause have an increased risk of breast cancer compared to women who do not. There are no clear links between diet and breast cancer risk, except for an increased risk of breast cancer in women who consume alcohol on a regular basis. Symptoms Early breast cancer usually does not cause pain. In fact, when it first develops, breast cancer may cause no symptoms at all. But as the cancer grows, it can cause these changes: a lump or thickening in the breast or armpit a change in the size or shape of the breast discharge from the nipple a change in the color or texture of the skin of the breast or areola (such as dimpling, puckering, or scaliness). Note: any changes in the breast should be reported to a doctor without delay. Symptoms can be caused by cancer or by a number of less serious conditions. Early diagnosis is especially important for breast cancer because the disease responds best to treatment before it has spread. The earlier breast cancer is found and treated, the better a woman's chance for complete recovery. Diagnosis The diagnosis

Researchers Develop A Device That Can Read Your Th

15 Simple Tricks To Make Your Hair Grow Faster   Such long and lustrous hair. It is dream that most have and it is not unachievable. Whether you are suffering from hair growth problems or envious of the long and shiny locks of your favorite movie star or want to get out of a disastrous haircut, we have the best solutions for all these hair issues!   The Science Behind Hair Growth 1. An average human has 1,00,000 hair follicles, each of which produce 20 hairs in a lifetime. 2. Each of our hair strands undergoes 3 stages: Anagen phase, Catagen phase and Telogen phase. About 90% of the hair on your scalp now is in the growth phase or the Anagen phase which usually takes around 5 years. During the Catagen phase, the hair follicle shrinks. This happens to 1% of hair strands and takes about a month’s time. And finally in the Telogen phase, the hair rests or falls off. This happens to around 10 – 15% of the hair strands and this period last upto 5 months. 3. The rate of hair growth varies from person to person, but the average rate is about 15 centimeters or 6 inches per year. 4. Each hair strand completes its cycle and wears off. A person loses about 50 to 100 of hair strands per day. On the day when you wash your hair, you end up losing up to 250 strands. But if you lose more than this range, you suffer from severe hair fall problem and should consult a dermatologist.   Causes Behind Hair Fall 1. Genetics: Genetics is one of the major causes of hair fall. Studies show that 60% of the people inherit the problem of acute hair fall. And sadly there are no treatments to cure hair fall caused by heredity. However you can take care of your mane to delay the process and make it healthy and shiny. 2. Improper Diet: A healthy diet is very important not only for our body, but also for skin and hair. Our scalp cells needs proper nourishment and nutrition. People who follow low protein diet can suffer protein deficiency which leads to massive amount of hair shedding. Deficiency of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients can cause hair fall and thinning of hair. 3. Prolong Diseases: Hair loss caused due to diseases or illness is mostly temporary.It is cured once the body returns to good health. Typhoid, flu, fungus infection on the scalp (ringworm) etc causes hair fall. Thyroid imbalance is another condition which leads to temporary hair fall, as both underactive and over active thyroid glands is responsible for hair loss. However it can easily be cured by proper medication from the physician. 4. Stress: Our present day lifestyle has long working hours and a hectic schedule and stress is the subversive effect. Our scalp cells, like other body cells, need relaxation and rejuvenation. Therefore practice yoga and meditation to reduce the effects of stress and thus reduce hair fall.

BOTTLE FEEDING CHANGES INFANT’S IMMUNE SYSTEM

BOTTLE FEEDING CHANGES INFANT’S IMMUNE SYSTEM     Infant rhesus monkeys that are breast fed develop distinct immune systems from those that are fed formula from a bottle, a new study shows. While researchers expected different diets would promote different intestinal bacteria (microbiota), they were surprised at how dramatically these microbes shaped immunologic development. Specifically, breast-fed macaques had more “memory” T cells and T helper 17 (TH17) cells, which are known to fight salmonella and other pathogens. “We saw two different immune systems develop: one in animals fed mother’s milk and another in those fed formula,” says Dennis Hartigan-O’Connor, assistant professor in the medical microbiology and immunology department at University of California, Davis and a scientist at the California National Primate Research Center.The differences persisted for months after the macaques had been weaned and placed on identical diets, indicating that variations in early diet may have long-lasting effects. “But what’s most startling is the durability of these differences. Infant microbes could leave a long-lasting imprint on immune function.”

BIRDS KNEW TO FLEE BEFORE TORNADO HIT

BIRDS KNEW TO FLEE BEFORE TORNADO HIT     While tracking a population of golden-winged warblers, scientists discovered that birds in the mountains of eastern Tennessee fled their breeding grounds one to two days before powerful supercell storms arrived. The storm system swept through the central and southern United States in late April 2014, generating 84 confirmed tornadoes and killing 35 people. “It is the first time we’ve documented this type of storm avoidance behavior in birds during breeding season,” says ecologist Henry Streby, who conducted the work while he was a National Science Foundation postdoctoral fellow and a visiting research scholar in University of California, Berkeley’s department of environmental science, policy and management. ' “We know that birds can alter their route to avoid things during regular migration, but it hadn’t been shown until our study that they would leave once the migration is over and they’d established their breeding territory to escape severe weather,” says Streby, who led the research team. “The warblers in our study flew at least 1,500 kilometers (932 miles) total to avoid a severe weather system. They then came right back home after the storm passed.” Notably, the birds fled while the storm was still 250-560 miles away, and local environmental cues to inclement weather—including changes in atmospheric pressure, temperature, and wind speed—were largely absent. “At the same time that meteorologists on the Weather Channel were telling us this storm was headed in our direction, the birds were apparently already packing their bags and evacuating the area,”

Woman who cares for 100,000 cockroaches in home: ‘

Woman who cares for 100,000 cockroaches in home: ‘These are all my children’ A 37-year-old woman in China shares her countryside home with the estimated 100,000 cockroaches she breeds. The South China Morning Post reports that Yuan Meixia cares for the roaches that she eventually sells to a pharmaceutical company, which uses the bugs for medicines. “These are all my children, my babies,” Yuan told the Southern Metropolis News. The insect breeder resides at a separate home in Siqian county but visits the breeding house, in the Linbian village, every day.       View gallery .

How to Maintain a Clean Home

How to Maintain a Clean Home These are tips that the entire family can and should use. All family members living in the home should help take care of the home they live in. Almost everyone can do something, even small children. There is no reason why Mom should clean up behind herself and everyone else too! After all, if everyone is partaking of the blessings of the home to live in, everyone should help take care of it. While no one will change overnight, incorporating these tips into your daily life will soon make new and neater habits for even the messiest of the messes. Steps 1 Clean up any and all messes immediately. You will get into the habit of doing this after a while. Once you walk away from it, chances are that you won't go back to it. 2 Make a habit of cleaning up as you go! This saves time and keeps your home clean and organized. Washing dishes as you cook works great and prevents the large pile to wash after the meal. 3 If you can't clean as you go, take 15 minutes a day to clean your home. It's a tempting thought to try and clean the entire house all at once, and if you can do that, great! However, most don't have that much time set aside on any one day. Instead, start with the kitchen and bathroom. These are two rooms that should always be clean and sanitary. Make it a goal to clean those two rooms and keep them clean. Then work on the rest of the home. Once you have a room clean and organized, make an effort to clean as you go so that it stays that way. 4 Keep a bag/box for items that you no longer use/need. This includes clothes, toys, books....whatever is in your home that's not being used. Keep everything labeled with the date that you put it in the bag—get rid of it after seven days. You can donate it, sell it, trash it—just get rid of them! The idea here is to get rid of clutter, not just to move it from one place to another. 5 Clean during commercial breaks. If you watch TV, have everyone hop up during commercials to do simple tasks like putting shoes away, hanging up coats and school bags up etc. Three people doing that three or four times through a 1/2 hour show equals a sum close to an hour of work! In addition, this ends up feelings more like a game than a chore. Method 1 of 4: Keeping a Kitchen Clean 1 Never go to bed with a dirty kitchen. Even if you can't get to the dishes right after a meal, make sure the kitchen is clean before bedtime to prevent an unmanageable mess.

How to Kill Bamboo

How to Kill Bamboo While bamboo can look quite pretty, it can also be an invasive plant. It is hard to get rid of, no matter what method you choose. Luckily, it's not impossible to remove. Whether you go for the chemical, organic, or physical methods, you will be doing a fair amount of digging up rhizomes (underground stems) and cutting down the stalks. The best way, of course, is to prevent your bamboo from ever becoming a problem. Method 1 of 3: Killing Bamboo with Chemicals 1 Cut the bamboo down to soil level and wait for new shoots to grow back.Before you spray new bamboo leaves, make sure that you either cut or mow it down and then allow it to regrow. It sounds weird, but you need to let new bamboo grow. Bamboo herbicide won't be effective if the canes of the bamboo are well-developed. Cut the bamboo down in late winter so that you can be applying to herbicide on the new growth in late spring or early summer. 2 Sever any underground rhizomes when new shoots start to grow back. Use a sharp spade (or other sharp garden implement) to cut down the bamboo and sever the rhizomes of the bamboo.[1] Break up as many clumps of rhizomes as possible. Rhizomes are masses of roots that grow underground. These root-stalks grow horizontally underground in clumps and then send new shoots up beyond the surface when the plant is ready to grow. You probably recognize rhizomes if you've ever eaten ginger and galangal, or have seen raw turmeric. These roots with many offshoots are what the underground rhizomes of the bamboo plant should look like. 3 Apply glyphosate herbicide to the leaves, stalks, and shoots of the bamboo.Glyphosate herbicide only kills the plants that it comes into direct contact with. This means that you'll need to be careful about applying it only to the bamboo.[2] Most glyphosate herbicides need to be sprayed onto the leaves, stalks, and shoots of the plant and allowed enough time to penetrate before any water dilutes it. Unless instructed to do so, do not apply glyphosate herbicide to the soil surrounding the bamboo, as it will be ineffective. If you're near a water supply (river, lake, ocean, etc.) make sure that you're using an herbicide that's meant for eradicating plants near water. You don't want to contaminate nearby bodies of water.

How to Build a Lamp

How to Build a Lamp Got an odd piece that you want to display, but aren't sure what to do with it? How about making a lamp? You can make lamps out of almost anything, and they provide decor and ambience, in addition to making great conversation pieces. If your craftsy side is feeling neglected and you want to spark it back into action, here's a perfect project for you. Part 1 of 3: Preparation - Watch a 10 second video 1 Find a base. The base for your lamp should be sturdy enough to stand on its own, even after you add lamp apparatus and a shade on top. If you have a hollow base that you need to stabilize, consider partially filling it with something like marbles or sand. Some ideas for lamp bases that you could use: Wine bottles Log or timber Wooden pails or buckets Toys or figurines Hollowed-out books - Watch a 10 second video 2 Buy a lamp kit. These can be found at most hardware stores. Note that it's possible to purchase the pieces separately, but buying them together will ensure a better fit. If you do buy the cord separately, choose a #18 size cord. If you don't want to buy a lamp kit, and instead want to purchase the items separately, you'll need: Detachable harp Cord set Push-through socket and socket shell Finial Assorted hardware, like nuts, bolts and washers - Watch a 10 second video 3 Prepare the base for the rod. The rod is a hollow tube that will run the cord up through the bottom of your base to the lightbulb at the top. Depending on your base, you may have to drill or cut holes wide enough for the rod at the top and bottom of the lamp. If necessary, you can trim the rod with a hacksaw or pipe cutters, but it's best (and easier) to choose a base that's fitted to your rod. Sawing your rod down to size is not ideal. - Watch a 10 second video 4 Stabilize the bottom of the base. Your lamp kit might come with a piece meant to stabilize the bottom of your base. If it doesn't, simply purchase rubber stoppers. Affix these at intervals around the base to prevent sliding and lift the base slightly off the table, allowing room for the cord. Part 2 of 3: Setup

Happy New Year~2015! Blog

Happy New Year~2015! Blog    Hi everyone!  The new year has started, and I wanted to share a festive, quick & easy cake design with you! First, I truly love the look of piped buttercream on cakes.   In fact, the more piping, the better!  It’s often a quicker option than applying frosting with a completely smooth finish, and I love the dressed up feel. I often use my trusty 2D tip to pipe vertical ribbons of buttercream onto cakes….but today I wondered what would happen if I piped horizontally instead.  The result is so pretty…and so easy!  It’s my favorite part of this tutorial ;0) First, I crumb coated my cake with a thin layer of buttercream.  Then, starting from the bottom of the cake, I piped long strands of buttercream with my 2D tip.  If you have a turntable, it makes things a bit easier so that you can spin as you pipe.  We used this recipe but any frosting that holds it’s shape nicely to piping would work well.

How to Stop Biting Your Nails by Jan Baz

How to Stop Biting Your Nails Nail biting is a bad habit that can not only make your hands look unsightly, but if you bite your nails badly enough, you can permanently damage your nails, your teeth, or even your gums. If you are tired of the nail stubs and bleeding, try these simple remedies to promote normal and beautiful nail growth. Method 1 of 6: Covering your Nails with Adhesive Bandages 1 Put adhesive bandages over your nails. Cover your nail with the pad of the bandage. 2 Keep the bandages on every day. You can apply fresh bandages every time you shower, or every few days. You can remove them for a special occasion, or choose to keep them on so you look silly during the occasion and are even more motivated to stop biting your nails. If this process is starting to hurt your nails, you can take them off at night. 3 After a few weeks, take off the adhesive bandages. 4 Notice how much better your nails look. If you start biting your nails again, put the adhesive bandages back on. Method 2 of 6: Take it One Nail at a Time 1 Pick at least one nail to "protect" at a time. 2 Go a few days without biting that nail. 3 Notice how much better that nail looks than the others. After a few days, a non-bitten nail will flourish and reward you. Do not bite it. If you must, bite one of the 'unprotected' ones. Sometimes it helps knowing that you have another nail to bite, even if you don't actually nibble at any unprotected ones. 4 Pick another nail to stop biting. Once you have grown your non-bitten nail for a while, start protecting another one. And another. 5 Continue the process until you have successfully avoided biting all of your nails. If you ever really feel the urge to bite your nails, focus on just one nail to bite. Method 3 of 6: Keep Your Hands

How to Maintain an Open Fire in Your Home

How to Maintain an Open Fire in Your Home For those of you who enjoy the natural glow of a nightly fire to stay warm on colder nights, an open fire can serve as an ideal form of small area heating. There are some important things to bear in mind when tending and maintaining an open fire in your home, however, to ensure both the safety, suitability and sustainability of the materials used, and the heating effectiveness. Steps 1 Consider safety before all else. Although the fire is confined to a fireplace, it still can present a fire hazard to your home. Some key safety considerations: Before use each year, check that the chimney is cleared of debris and that birds or other animals haven't taken up residence in the top. Keep furniture and furnishings a safe distance from the fireplace and ensure that any close furniture is able to withstand direct heat. Do not leave plastic furniture of any kind near a fireplace. Keep a space around the fire place that uses fireproof or fire resistant materials. Tiles, slate, concrete, etc. are appropriate materials to make a space around the fireplace for sparks to fall upon and self-extinguish. Do not have rugs, carpet, or flowing fabrics anywhere near this space around the fireplace - the risk of embers sparking a fire is too great. While natural fibers cope better with heat, all fibers risk catching on fire and should be kept well away; scorch marks can result on woolen sweaters for those who sit too close and if that happens, youare too close! Cotton and synthetics have no fire resistance, so take care wearing or hanging these anywhere near live flames. Use a fire screen around the fireplace to prevent embers from sparking when you are too busy to tend to the fire, such as when leaving the room for any reason, or when caught up in conversation. Fire screens are very important when young children are around and youngsters should be taught early on about correct fire safety.

How to Convince Your Family to Eat Kale

How to Convince Your Family to Eat Kale Known as a "nutrition powerhouse", kale contains a high concentration of vitamins A, C and K, folate and potassium, as well as phytonutrients (nutrients that sustain human life in an optimal way such as preventing disease).[1] According to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, eating a diet high in vitamin K can lower your cancer risk. Moreover, adding more green leaves to your diet is the absolute best nutritional means by which you can protect yourself from heart disease, diabetes and some cancers.[1] In addition to these various documented health benefits, eating kale can be a tantalizing and delicious experience. But perhaps you're not convinced and you're even less convinced that your family will think so... Indeed, while this information is valuable and suggests that eating kale should be a “no brainer,” many families turn their noses up at the green, leafy vegetable. Yet it is possible to turn moaning about kale into at least positive acceptance and maybe even sought after enjoyment. To get to this point, instead of slapping some steamed kale on your family’s plate tonight and telling them they must eat it, use a little psychology, reasoning and mouthwatering ingredients to get them begging for more. Steps 1 Talk up the health benefits of kale to family members who will listen. For younger kids, simply let them know it'll help them grow strong and stay healthy. For everyone able to understand the benefits of good health, make this anti-cancer, vitamin rich super-food more relevant by talking about why you want to stay healthy and how easily good nutrition can assure this. Some reasons to help you convince your family of why it's important to stay healthy through good nutrition include: To avoid being sidelined from their social life. Even toddlers don't want to miss a play date, so telling your children and teens that eating healthy will ensure that they don't miss their “appointments” may help them to appreciate why you are putting it on their plate. Keeping their brain healthy. While there is no cure for diseases like Alzheimer’s, many physicians and researchers believe that a preventative diet that includes foods like kale can reduce the risk of contracting the disease (along with daily exercise). Kale's vitamins A, E, K and C (also found in all darkly colored fruits and vegetables) have been known to prevent damage caused by free radicals. May help improve eyesight. Not interested in getting glasses? Eat your kale and let the dietary carotenoid Zeaxanthin go to work, keeping your eyes bright. Carotenoids protect the eyes through mopping up free radicals that could otherwise harm the macular region of the eye. Any vegetarians or vegans in the family? Research has shown that the calcium in kale is particularly well absorbed.[2] It tastes good. Okay, you're getting to this part. They need to trust you on this... 2 Consider

How to Have the Dreams You Want by Jan Baz

How to Have the Dreams You Want Dreams can have a powerful effect on our waking lives. They reflect our hopes and fears about the future and even help us revisit our pasts. Whether you want to learn how to lucid dream (i.e. actively control and be aware of your dreams while sleeping) or you simply want to learn how to have more pleasant dreams, there are a number of things you can do throughout the day and before you go to bed to have the dreams you want. If you want to know how to control your dreams, see Step 1 to get started. Part 1 of 4: Having more pleasant dreams 1 Go to bed earlier. A sleep study conducted in 2011 for the journal Sleep and Biological Rhythms concluded that university students who stayed up later tended to have more unpleasant dreams than those who hit the sack earlier. If you want your dreams to be more pleasant, then try going to bed at least an hour earlier every night and see if that has a positive impact on your dreams. One potential explanation for this finding is that the stress hormone cortisol is released in the early morning, a time in which the night-owls were likely in REM (Rapid Eye Movement), or dream, sleep. 2 Control your diet. Nightmares can be triggered by a variety of things, including late-night snacking, alcohol, caffeine, or cigarettes.[3] If you have persistent nightmares, then consider cutting out these substances, and don't eat for two to three hours before you go to sleep. This will give you enough time to digest your food and will lead to a more restful sleep. If you're serious about having deeper and more pleasant dreams, then you should avoid the caffeine after about noon. You may feel that you need the extra energy, but it'll make it harder for you to fall asleep. Though you may think that a glass of wine before bed will help you fall asleep, it will actually lead you to have a less restful sleep. And if your sleep is lest restful and you want to actually control your dreams, then this will make it harder to do. 3 Tackle stress. Oftentimes, negative dreams are a reflection of the stress or anxiety we are experiencing in our everyday lives.[4] Try not to dwell on these things while you are laying in bed trying to fall asleep. Instead, take a moment to clear your head and think of positive things. The more you focus on having a less stressful outer life, the more calm your inner life and your dreams will be. Getting regular exercise can help you ease stress levels, have better dreams, and get to sleep faster.[5] Don't exercise too close to bedtime, however, as this can keep you up. 4 Have a more relaxing bedtime routine. It's important to ease into sleep and to have a relaxation routine, such as drinking herbal tea or reading a book, before you fall sleep so that your dreams are less likely to be scary or disturbing. Find whatever works best for helping you fall asleep and stick to the pattern you have developed. Try to push any stressful or painful thoughts from your mind as you ease into sleep. Avoid watching violent, scary, or otherwise stressful movies and television shows before going to bed, as these can cause nightmares.[6] If you want a more restful sleep, turn off all visual stimuli at least half an hour to an hour before bed. That means no phones, no TV, no computer, and nothing else that will make it harder for you to turn your mind off and to have a more restful sleep. 5 Put roses in your bedroom. Scientists conducted a dream study in which women were exposed to the scent of roses throughout the night for 30 nights, and reported having more pleasant dreams than usual.[7] It is believed that the scent elicits positive emotions, which in turn make dreams more pleasant. You can also use rose-scented oils, body lotions, or candles. Be sure to blow out the candles before going to sleep, however, to prevent fires. Part 2 of 4: Preparing for lucid dreaming during the day 1 Get enough sleep. Dreams occur during REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep, a phase of the sleep cycle.[8] If you are not sleeping enough, or frequently wake up throughout the night, your REM cycles may be getting interrupted. You need to make sure to get between 7-9 hours of sleep on a regular basis and to go to bed around the same time every night so your mind and body know what to expect. 2 Pay attention to your dreams. Many people believe that learning how to notice and remember your dreams is the first step to achieving lucid dreams.[9] Before you go to bed, remind yourself that you plan on waking up and fully recalling your dreams. This will eventually train your subconscious to pay better attention to your dreams. Here are some ways to better remember your dreams: Upon waking up, ask yourself what you dreamt. Don't get out of bed immediately, or it'll be harder to remember what happened. Instead, stay in bed and focus on the details of the dreams.[10] Part of the reason people "forget" their dreams is because they wake up and immediately begin thinking about other things. Get in the habit of asking yourself this question every single morning. Write down your dreams. Do this immediately after you wake up, and keep a journal and pen at your bedside so that you can quickly write down your dreams before you forget them. This will also help you notice your dream patterns over time.[11]

How to Open a Champagne Bottle with a Sword

How to Open a Champagne Bottle with a Sword Amaze everyone at your next social function with le sabrage, or opening a bottle of champagne (or any sparkling wine) with a sword. Napoleon's officers did it––now you can, too! Teaching yourself to "behead" a bottle of champagne isn't hard, but takes a little practice (and a case or two of cheap bubbly) to perfect. Steps 1 Obtain a bottle of chilled champagne that has not been shaken. It is best if the bottle has chilled in a cold refrigerator overnight. Some people additionally advise chilling the neck of the bottle in an ice-water bucket just before sabering. 2 Wipe away any moisture on the bottle with a napkin. Remove the foil from the top of the bottle. Unwrap and remove the wire cage from the bottle. Alternatively, to avoid the risk of the cork getting pushed out on its own prior to sabrage, loosen the wire cage and raise it up to the next level, then tighten it back down on the upper flanged end of the bottle.

Children were born anddidn’t know true freedom until the wall fell, many died waiting for the wall to fall and remembering a time without a wall, and some even died trying to escape East Berlin and they would never have that feeling and excitement when the wall finally fell on November 9, 1989. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the fall of the wall. Here are 25 photos for 25 years: the fall of the Berlin Wall. 1. West Berlin citizens hold a vigil at The Berlin Wall in front of the Brandenburg Gate on November 10, 1989.

How to Get Rid of a Cold Sore with H... by Jan Baz

How to Get Rid of a Cold Sore with Home Remedies Two Parts:Topical RemediesOral Treatments Cold sores are caused by the herpes simplex virus. They usually heal on their own, but since they can be both painful and embarrassing, you might find yourself wanting to speed the healing process up as much as possible. While most home remedies are not scientifically backed, there are many that are commonly held as cold sore cures. Part 1 of 2: Topical Remedies 1 Cool it down. Hold an ice cube or ice pack directly on the cold sore for a few minutes. Keep it there until the cold has numbed the pain and remove it shortly after. Repeat this procedure once every one to three hours.[1] Note that you should only do this when the cold sore is new. If the cold sore has already broken open, ice could actually hinder the healing process. 2 Make time for tea. The simplest way to use tea is to apply a warm tea bag on the cold sore for a few minutes. Repeat every few hours. The tannin in black tea can soothe inflammation and dry the skin. Make a lemon balm tea. Steep 2 to 4 tsp (10 to 20 ml) crushed lemon balm in 1 cup (250 ml) boiling water for 10 to 15 minutes. Dab this tea on the cold sore throughout the day using cotton swabs. Note that lemon balm can reduce the physical symptoms of stress, which can cause cold sore flare-ups. Green tea is also a good choice since it contains high levels of an antioxidant called epigallocatechin gallate. This antioxidant is believed to be an antiviral. You can apply green tea bags to the cold sore directly or drink two to three cups of green tea daily to get the effect. 3 Use cold dairy. Both cold milk and cold yogurt are believed to have some usefulness against cold sores. Apply either one with a cotton ball, coating the cold sore completely. Milk contains immunoglobulins, special antibodies that can fight off viruses, and lysine, which can fight arginine, a certain amino acid that can cause cold sore outbreaks. Soak a cotton ball in 1 Tbsp (15 ml) of cold milk and apply it directly to the cold sore for a couple of minutes. Note that drinking milk can also help combat cold sores. The probiotics in yogurt can help fight the herpes virus causing the cold sore. Dab a little plain yogurt directly onto the cold sore, or eat two to three cups of non-fat yogurt daily during an outbreak.[2] 4 Try a natural oil or extract. Certain natural oils and extracts have antiseptic properties, and when applied directly to the cold sore, they can combat the virus causing it. Others have astringent properties, so they can dry the area out and prevent infection from setting in and worsening the sore. Peppermint oil can target viruses that escape from the site of infection, making it useful against cold sores. Dip a cotton swab in peppermint oil and apply the oil to your cold sore. Do this twice a day until the sore clears. Witch hazel oil is an astringent and an antiseptic. Soak a cotton swab in 1 tsp (5 ml) of witch hazel and apply it directly to the cold sore. Do not rinse it off. Apply this cure once or twice a day. Real vanilla extract is alcohol-based and makes it difficult for the virus to survive. Soak a cotton swab in 1/2 tsp (2.5 ml) vanilla extract and press it directly on the sore, holding it in place for a minute or two. Do this up to four times a day. Both tea tree oil and garlic oil can help the healing process by keeping cold sores soft. A soft cold sore is less likely to split open. If a cold sore splits open, it can reactivate or come back stronger. Dab a little of either oil directly onto the cold sore once or twice a day.

How to Annotate

How to Annotate   Annotating text is a purposeful note taking system. It helps to encourage close reading and literary analysis. Your annotation system can be highly personalized, but you should establish your method before you start to read. Find out how to annotate a text to achieve a better understanding of the plot, characters and themes. Part 1 of 4: Prepare for Reading 1 Specify what annotations are required for your assignment. Unless you are reading for pleasure, your annotations usually identify plot, character and themes. However, they can also include setting, vocabulary and figurative language. If you are in secondary school, you may want to ask your teacher for a list of suggested annotations. If you are in graduate schools, you should make a plan to annotate according to the assignment to which the annotations will apply. 2 Analyze the assignment. Choose the elements of the story that you are being asked to write about. For example, if you are being asked to write about themes, you should add extra annotations for these. If you are being asked to write about character, you may want a different annotation method for each protagonist and antagonist. 3 Ask how many changes can be made to your copy of the text. If you own the book and plan to use it heavily, you will want to mark right on the page with highlighter and pencil. If you are using a library or school copy, you may do some light pencil marking inside, because it can be erased. However, you will want to use post it notes for large annotations because they can be removed later on without costly damage. If possible, buy your own copy of a book if you plan to annotate it. 4 Create a legend for your annotations. Make a list on a separate sheet of paper or inside the book cover that lists how you will annotate different elements of your analysis. For example, you may want to circle new vocabulary, box figurative language, underline thematic statements. Be clear and try to develop a method that you can use with future assignments. After several assignments, you may no longer need to use a legend to keep annotations straight.

How to Rack in 8 Ball

How to Rack in 8 Ball There are a number of variations to the game of 8-ball pool, but all of them begin the same way: You rack the 15 numbered balls inside a triangular rack and then break them. Getting the rack right is the first step to playing this popular game. Steps 1 Locate the foot spot on the pool table. Most pocket billiard tables are marked with a white dot inside a black circle at either end of the table, about halfway between the corner and side pockets. The foot spot is the spot furthest from the end of the table where the players stand during the break shot. 2 Place the triangle rack with its apex over the foot spot.

How to Cook Broccoli

How to Cook Broccoli   Broccoli is not only high in vitamin C, folic acid, and fiber, but it's also easy to cook and a nutritious addition to any meal. Whether you're steaming, sautéing, roasting, or blanching the broccoli, it's a tasty veggie that tastes great on its own or with a variety of other meats or vegetables. If you want to know how to cook broccoli, just follow these steps.   Method 1 of 5: Steam Fresh Broccoli 1 Clean the broccoli. If you bought your broccoli at a commercial grocery store, a thorough rinse is fine. If you grew your own broccoli or bought it at a farm stand, soak the broccoli in salted water for 10 minutes, then rinse it thoroughly. Garden-fresh broccoli is prone to cabbage loopers, a common garden pest. In their larval stage, cabbage loopers are green, approximately 1-inch-long worms. Though they're harmless, they can be a real appetite killer. The worms die in the salt water. The cabbage loopers will float to the top of the surface of the water where you can skim them off and dispose of them.

How to Plant Parsnips

How to Plant Parsnips The parsnip (Pastinaca sativa) is a root vegetable related to the carrot. Parsnips resemble carrots, but are paler than most of them and have a stronger flavor. Like carrots, parsnips are native to Eurasia and have been eaten there since ancient times. [1] Steps 1 Prepare the site. Loosen the soil with a fork and remove any weeds or large stones. Use a rake to create a level surface. Use the head of the rake to lightly press down the soil and lightly rake the surface once more. 2 Lay a piece of string on the soil as a guide to make sure you dig the row in a straight line. You will also want to lay a plank of wood next to the line that you just made. Line the plank of wood up right next to the line that was formed by laying the string out as a guide. 3 Use a cane, or other tool, to dig a narrow hole that you will place the seeds in. The narrow hole that you are digging should ideally be about 1 centimeter (0.4 in) deep in length.

KITCHEN TOOLS TO LAST A KNIFETIME

KITCHEN TOOLS TO LAST A KNIFETIME Eons ago, in the years WBCC (Way Before Chicago Cutlery), early man invented the knife, and it was good. Not great, but let’s face it: The bar was set pretty low some 2.6 million years ago when cavemen first fashioned knives out of stone or bone. In the ensuing ages, knife technology, like mankind, evolved. A SLICE OF HISTORY Through the millennia, knives were made from copper, bronze and iron. But technology really took a quantum leap in the early 1900s, when the first stainless-steel knives appeared on the scene in England. In 1930, Chicago Cutlery began to make its mark on the burgeoning knife industry in the United States. And by 1969, the company was making professional-grade knives for everyday use by a wide range of consumers. Today, the company offers a wide assortment of knife product lines that are either stamped (precision cut from large sheets of metal) or forged (hammered out individually from metal blanks, under extreme temperatures). With different lines that cater to various price points, Chicago Cutlery products enable cooking enthusiasts—from enthusiastic beginners to full-fledged chefs

How to Plant Roses by Jan Baz

How to Plant Roses Roses are one of the most beautiful, traditional, and fragrant flowers that you can plant in your garden. Sure, "every rose has its thorn," but these gorgeous flowers don't actually require a lot of care. All they really need is some attention and a sunny spot with good drainage. If you want to know how to plant roses and have them blossom to their full potential, adding color and happiness to your home, then follow these steps. Part 1 of 4: Getting Ready to Plant 1 Choose your variety of roses. Any variety of rose will be a beautiful addition to your garden, but it's important to check which roses will grow best in your region by looking at a regional guide to roses. You can also consider the appearance of the roses as well as their size. Here are several of the most popular and beautiful varieties of roses: Floribunda. These are the most colorful types of roses, and they are bushy shrubs that bloom freely, creating clusters of three to fifteen blossoms instead of just one blossom on a step. These shrubs can be grown individually but look the most impressive when you plant many rows of them next to each other. Hybrid Tea. These are one of the most popular types of roses, which grow as upright bushes that grow one flower per stem. These may be the roses you're most used to seeing at the florist's. Grandiflora. This beautiful variety of rose is a mix between a floribunda and a hybrid tea. It grows up to six feet tall and creates classic hybrid tea flower clusters. Shrub and landscape roses. These roses come in a variety of shapes and sizes and they can suit any landscape. They grow close to the ground, are naturally disease-resistant, and they require less attention than other roses while bearing roses over a long season. Climber roses. These roses add flavor to any garden and typically grow on a fence or a trellis. They have long, arching canes that have many flowers which can cover pillars, walls, or any structure that offers them support. Miniature roses. These are the smallest of the rose plants and they can grow anywhere from six inches to two feet tall. These roses flower continuously and are great for container gardening, making borders, and for growing in a small space. Tree roses. These roses have a hardy root stock and are grafted to a long stem that is then grafted to a rose bush at its top. The tree rose is visually stunning but it takes more care for it to survive through the winter. 2 Decide whether you want to plant bare root or container roses. This is an important distinction to make because you will have to plant the roses differently depending on whether they are bare root roses or roses that come in a container. Both will need to be planted into the ground to make the roots grow in the earth, but you'll have to choose between the two parts below to find what to do to plant your preferred type of rose. Here's what you need to know about the two kinds of roses:[1] Bare-root roses. These roses will not come with flowers on them, but that's not a bad thing. It means that the bush can expend its energy on developing its roots, not sustaining its flowers. You can plant these earlier in the growing season, as early as six weeks before your region's last average frost date in spring and not any later than two weeks after that date. If you plant them at the right time and using the right method, these roses will grow faster than container-grown roses. Container-grown roses. These roses have the advantage of already having flowers and therefore looking more beautiful when you plant them in your garden. They're usually sold in 1 gallon (3.8 L) sizes or larger and you'll have to be more careful about growing them in true spring time because they're more likely to get nipped by frost. 3 Chose your planting site. Your planting site will determine the fate of your roses, no matter how beautiful and tough the initial roses may be. You should find a place that gets at least 5-6 hours of direct sunlight each day, especially in the morning. You should also plant your roses near any shelters, such as a wall or a fence, if they're going to be in a particularly windy area. Here are some other things to keep in mind as you choose the perfect site for your roses:[2][3] Hot climates should have some shade to protect the roses from the hottest sun. Cold climates should have a warm wall or a fence to keep the roses from getting too cold. Your soil should have good drainage. Before you plant your roses, dig a hole and pour water into it to make sure that it drains after just a few hours. If your soil is too moist, the roots of your roses may rot. If this is the case, then you should consider planting your roses in raised beds. Make sure your soil isn't too thick or sandy. Adding organic materials such as dehydrated cow manure, shredded bark, or compost can help the soil reach the right consistency. Avoid planting your roses near trees or shrubs. They will compete for nutrients, water, and light, and they will not win out. The soil should not only retain moisture easily, but it should have a pH between 6.5 and 7. 4 Gather the materials for planting roses. Having your roses and location is a great start, but if you want to plant the roses, then you have to get all of your materials in order. Here's what you will need: Fertilizer Mulch Pruning shears Gardening gloves Compost or rose planting mix A spade A shovel A filled watering pot

And you probably have a whole lotta questions. Though this holiday is a biggie and you’ve got your work cut out for you, it’ll all be worth it. We’ll walk you through some helpful dos and don’ts to make sure your bird and its trimmings are tip-top, and you won’t end up looking like a turkey!

DO ERR ON THE SIDE OF EXTRA. Don’t skimp and cheat yourself (or your guests) out of second helpings or yummy leftover turkey sammies! A good rule of thumb is to buy as many pounds of turkey as you have guests, which will ensure that there’s plenty to go around. DON’T SKIP THE THAW. Do take enough time to properly (and slowly) allow a frozen bird to thaw. We recommend the refrigerator: Set the turkey in a shallow pan and allow 24 hours for every 5 pounds. Your other option is thawing in cold water with a minimum time

Building the City, One Bucket at a Time

Building the City, One Bucket at a Time Author Robin Hammond Lagos, Nigeria, is Africa’s most populous metropolitan area—with an estimated 21 million inhabitants. It also boasts the biggest economy of any city in Africa, housing some of the richest people on the continent, as well as huge numbers of poor. Robin Hammond photographed life in Lagos for the story “Africa’s First City,” which appears in the January 2015 issue of National Geographic magazine. In a series of five posts on Proof, he chronicles this city of contrasts that is fast becoming Africa’s hub of creativity, fashion, and business. ***** Fixers are local guides for journalists and photographers. They might also translate, sometimes they drive, many act as security advisers. My fixer in Lagos, Nigeria, is also a great friend. We would go everywhere together. He refused to come sailing though. It wasn’t his aversion to the brackish water of Lagos Lagoon; it was more the rickety boat in which we would be floating. He wasn’t convinced it would survive the voyage. Much of the sand pulled from the Lagos Lagoon is dug by hand. Sand miners dive 13 to 16 feet to the bottom of the lagoon and fill the boats one bucket at a time. Launch Gallery

Shooting Chauvet: Photographing the World’s Oldest

Shooting Chauvet: Photographing the World’s Oldest Cave Art Sephen Alvarez photographed the cave of Chauvet-Pont-d’Arc for the story“The Origins of Art” that appears in the January 2015 issue of National Geographic magazine. Here, he chronicles his experience shooting some of the world’s oldest cave art, under extremely challenging circumstances. ***** At our core, people are visual communicators. Nothing has ever confirmed my faith in that like seeing the ancient art in the cave of Chauvet-Pont-d’Arc in Ardèche, France. Standing in front of a 35,000-year-old painting, every possible thing separates me from that painter. We share no language, no culture. The lives of those first European hunter-gatherers are so far removed from mine that they are unimaginable. An abyss of time yawns between us, yet the images on the wall transcend time, erase barriers, and let those artists speak as clearly as if we were in the same room. The connection with the ancient artists is visceral. It is a magic that no other form of communication can manage. Entering Chauvet is like entering a time machine. Stephen Alvarez photographs ancient art in Chauvet cave by kneeling on a narrow metal walkway. He was only allowed inside the cave for a total of six hours. Launch Gallery Twenty-two thousand years ago, the entrance that overlooked the Ardèche Gorge collapsed, sealing the cave. Nothing entered and nothing changed until 1994 when three cavers shimmied through a tiny crack and rediscovered the chambers and their art. Except for a metal walkway installed to protect the cave floor, and a heavily monitored submarine door to keep out the curious, it remains exactly as it was in Paleolithic times. Preparing to photograph in Chauvet, I thought carefully about what my role should be. I am the only non-scientific photographer to shoot Chauvet this decade. It’s closed to all but a handful of researchers. That knowledge gave me a tremendous sense of responsibility. It also left me with a strong feeling of connection to those Paleolithic artists. I wanted to photograph the paintings in a way that let the original artists’ voice come through

How to Grow Carrots

How to Grow Carrots Carrots had their literal roots in the foothills of Afghanistan. When the carrot appeared in Europe sometime around the 12th century, they were likely grown in vibrant colors like red, yellow, orange, purple, and white. Belonging to the family Umbelliferae, carrots share similarities with parsley, celery, parsnips, and fennel, among others. Carrots are very easy to grow from seeds in your garden, a planter box, or even in a large pot. As long as you appropriately prepare the soil before planting, your carrots will thrive in almost any climate. Follow the steps below to grow beautiful, juicy carrots in no time.[1] Method 1 of 4: Choosing a Variety - Watch a 10 second video 1 Choose a variety with a root size and shape appropriate for your soil. There are five main categories of carrots that contain several subtypes. Chantenay. Chantenay carrots grow five to six inches into the soil and can be grown in most soil types, though they prefer rich, heavy soil conditions. Ball-type. Also known as "Thumbelina," Ball-type carrots are extremely similar to Chantenay, though they do not grow quite as long. [2] Danvers. Danvers carrots are large block-shaped carrots that need heavy, nutrient-rich soil in order to thrive. The soil does not have to be deep, however. Nantes. Originally from France, Nantes carrots are cylindrical carrots with rounded tips that grow between six and nine inches deep. Like Danvers, they thrive in shallow rich soil. Imperator. This variety, commonly found at the grocery store, needs deep, airy soil. Imperator carrots are characterized by their particularly long, spindly roots that hang on to the tip of the carrot. They are very particular about their soil conditions, so make sure your soil is deep, rich, airy, and has good drainage before attempting to plant this variety. - Watch a 10 second video 2 Select your seed type. Carrot seeds come either raw, coated with a layer of bentonite clay, or treated with a fungicide. Clay-covered seeds are better at retaining moisture during germination than seeds that do not have an applied coating on them. If you want to get a leg up on the growing game and make the germination process easier, choose coated seeds. Additionally, coated seeds are easier to handle and thus you can control where they are spaced better than non-coated seeds. Accurate spacing eliminates the need to thin plants later in the growing process.[3] Method 2 of 4: Prepping Your Garden - Watch a 10 second video 1 Choose an area with full or partial sun. Though full sun is best, carrots can handle some shade as they are a cool weather crop.

7 Lies You Believe About Nutrition by Jan Baz

    7 Lies You Believe About Nutrition   The world of nutrition is plagued with lies.   It’s full of misconceptions, misnomers, bad science and greedy companies trying to get their hand even further into your wallet. So, it’s time to cut through the noise. I want to bring to light the 7 biggest lies you’ve been told about nutrition, with research backed evidence to show you the light. If you’re ready to have your current beliefs rocked, come with me as I expose these 7 common lies: 1. ‘Saturated Fats Are Bad For Your Heart’ Your whole life you’ve been told that eating high fat foods was bad for your heart and your cholesterol. That butters, creams, cheeses, steaks and all your favourite meats were slowly taking you towards an inevitable heart attack. In fact, that couldn’t be further from the truth. The above study pieced together 21 studies of over 350,000 people of which 11,000 had heart disease, which covers a span of almost 14 years. Their conclusion? There is no correlation between eating saturated fat and heart disease. So, I suggest you go out and eat a butter-fried steak to celebrate. 2. ‘You Must Eat 5 Meals A Day To Lose Weight’ The old body-builders adage of ‘eat before you’re hungry, stop before you’re full’ has been the method behind the madness of personal trainers and dieticians for decades. Probably, well, since Pumping Iron took the world by storm. Everyone wants abs like Arnold after all, right? Well, studies show that eating meals more frequently isn’t shown to favourably change the body composition of sedentary people. Put simply: unless you’re an athlete, or exercising intensely more than 6-8 hours week, you’re not going to lose moreweight doing following this method. It’s more about what you put in your mouth, instead of

4 Simple Ways To Prepare Coconut Milk At Home

4 Simple Ways To Prepare Coconut Milk At Home Do you want to add a dose of richness to your food? Want to make your meal more nutritious and wholesome? Then coconut milk is something you should try out! But then, the coconut milk you get in the market isn’t pure or healthy. So what can you do? How about making coconut milk right at your home? Sounds great, right? Want to know how you can prepare your own coconut milk at home? Then this post is a must-read for you! Nutritional Highlights Of Coconut: Coconuts have high nutrient content, and as well as fiber, vitamins and minerals. They are a rich source of: Vitamins C, E, B1, B3, B5 and B6. Minerals including iron, selenium, sodium, calcium, magnesium, manganese and phosphorous. Coconut contains unusually high amounts of healthy fatty acids like lauric acid, also found in breast milk, and caprylic acid, known for its potent antiviral and antifungal properties. Manganese is essential for metabolism and collagen formation and helps keep the blood pressure normal. Copper plays a big role in immunity and bone health, and selenium is critical for thyroid function, as well as, healthy skin, nails, and hair. Apart from this, coconut milk, unlike cow’s milk, is lactose- free. This makes it an excellent milk substitute, especially for vegans (people who shun milk and its products, apart from animal food) and those who are lactose intolerant. If you select canned coconut milk, you may be exposing yourself to toxic BPA (Bisphenol-A), a known human endocrine disruptor and probable carcinogen, which is found in the lining of cans. This carcinogen can get into the coconut milk, making it unsafe.   Coconut milk in tetra packs comes with its own set of health risks. If not fresh, it can be bad for your gut health, and if fortified, it can cause allergies and digestive problems. It is also too thin and low in fat to be of much use for making curries. So, the best option remains the homemade coconut milk which is fresher, less processed and healthier and also friendlier for your wallet. Homemade coconut milk made from dried coconuts is many times richer in vitamins, food enzymes and nutrients than canned coconut milk. How To Make Homemade Coconut Milk? There are many ways to make coconut milk. However, in this post we are going to be talking about four common methods. You could also choose to ferment the coconut milk for making coconut yogurt. This way you will get even more proteins and nutrition along with a healthy dose of probiotics for better digestion. 1. Coconut Milk From Shredded Coconut: Tools: A good blender Muslin cloth, fine cheese cloth or strainer bag Ingredients: 2 cups shredded coconut 4 cups hot water

How to Peel Peaches

How to Peel Peaches Peach season peaks in the early summer and there is often an excess of local harvest, making it relatively cheap to purchase these flavorful, nutritious fruits in quantity. And, peeling them is often the first step to making bright, flavorful cobblers, pies, and jams. Peeling peaches isn't hard if you know the right way to go about it! Steps 1 Select ripe peaches. Peaches that are at their ripest are much easier to peel. When peaches are ripe, the skin tends to fall off without taking any of the fruit with it. Choose those peaches that are highly fragrant and indent only slightly when pressed with your thumb. If a peach feels hard as a rock, it's not yet ripe, so it is best to avoid those that are still a little green. If you easily break the skin when you press it with a finger, it's overripe. Overripe peaches are still good for making cobblers and other dishes. Just make sure the peaches you're using aren't rotten:[1] On an unripe peach, avoid small circular spots that get bigger or join. On a mature peach, avoid deepish lesions. These may grow rapidly. Avoid tannish-gray spore masses that are sometimes found upon close examination. (These are sometimes found all over the skin and sometimes in localized patches.) Avoid shriveled brown, black, or brownish-black fruits. 2 Rinse the peaches. Give the peaches a quick rinse under cool water before proceeding, especially if they have visible dirt or other debris. You don't want dirt (or bacteria) ending up in your finished dishes.

Explaining World’s Biggest Spider

  Explaining World’s Biggest Spider The world’s largest spider has crept back into the spotlight, thanks to a scientist who describes a harrowing encounter with a tarantula. Harvard entomologist Piotr Naskrecki recently recounted on his blog coming across a puppy-sized, foot-long (0.3-meter) South American Goliath birdeater (Theraphosa blondi) a few years ago in Guyana (map). “I could clearly hear its hard feet hitting the ground and dry leaves crumbling under its weight,” Naskrecki wrote about his nighttime run-in. “I pressed the switch and pointed the light at the source of the sound, expecting to see a small mammal, a possum, a rat maybe. And at first this is what I thought I saw—a big, hairy animal, the size of a rodent.” (Watch a video of the world’s biggest spider eating a mouse.) Instead it was a specimen of T. blondi, a tarantula whose weight can reach six ounces (170 grams). Last Halloween, Carrie Arnold wrote an explainer about this monster of the spider world, which we’ve drawn from for this article.

On the Hundredth Anniversary of the Start of World

On the Hundredth Anniversary of the Start of World War I, Remembering the Part Animals Played Horses, dogs, pigeons—even glowworms—were crucial participants in the war to end all wars. An American soldier demonstrates the use of gas masks for men and horses in France in 1918. Tucked between two lanes of traffic at Brook Gate, in London's leafy Hyde Park, two heavily laden mules, cast in bronze, trudge terrified but steadfast across an imaginary battlefield. In front of them, carved into a long wall of white Portland stone, is a frieze of other animals—an elephant, a camel, dogs, carrier pigeons—with an inscription that reads, "They had no choice." The film adaptation of Michael Morpurgo's 1982 novel War Horse vividly captured the plight of horses. "Eight million horses died on all sides in the First World War," says Jilly Cooper, author of Animals in War and the moving force behind the memorial in Park Lane.The sacrifice of the nearly ten million men who died from 1914 to 1918 will always remain the focus of our remembrance. But on the eve of the hundredth anniversary of World War I, we can also reflect on the fact that animals played a big part—and paid a high price. Indeed, throughout history no other conflict has seen as many animals deployed as the "war to end all wars." "They died in battle and shellfire but also from exposure and disease. They were so hungry they ate their rugs and died choking on the buckles. Many drowned in the mud." With so many horses at work in France, on the home front alternatives had to be found to haul heavy loads. In Sheffield, for instance, a circus elephant named Lizzie carried munitions and machinery around the city. On the battlefront, it wasn't just horses. Pigeons carried messages, oxen hauled guns, and even glowworms—collected by the thousands in jars—were pressed into

Dispatches From the Dawn Wall Author Mallory Benedict Every photographer has their comfort zone—the place they feel most at home when they’re shooting. For Corey Rich, that place is thousands of feet above the ground. Rich accompanied climbers Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgesen throughout the majority of their ascent of the Dawn Wall of Yosemite’s El Capitan over the course of 19 days. Caldwell and Jorgeson became the first climbers to free climb the 3,000-foot vertical wall, realizing a dream seven years in the making. And Rich was right alongside them. “I’m not just photographing strangers; these are very close friends,” said Rich. “To see someone who’s so close succeed and really push themselves, push the envelope and change climbing history, to be part of that as a documentarian is very satisfying.” In addition to the obstacles

PUMPKIN CARVING TIPS FOR JAZZY JACK-O’-LANTERNS

PUMPKIN CARVING TIPS FOR JAZZY JACK-O’-LANTERNS They glow from front steps and twinkle from windows, warmly greeting trick-or-treaters and their protective entourages. Carving smiling (or scary!) jack-o’-lanterns for Halloween is one of those long-standing traditions that never gets old. But to make the cut as the neighborhood pumpkin-carving Michelangelo (or Edward Scissorhands), you need more than just a sharp knife; a bit of how-to common sense and carving acumen helps, too. With that in mind, here are some tips that’ll make pumpkin carving safer and more fun for all. 1. USE YOUR GOURD AND PICK WISELY Look for an unbruised fruit with a flat base so it can’t roll. Check out the bottom, too; soft spots or punctures will lead to rot. Another clue to a healthy pumpkin—a sturdy stem. (But never use the stem to lift a pumpkin!) Also keep in mind that larger pumpkins are easier to carve. Smaller ones are better suited for cooking because their flesh is more tender and flavorful. 2. GET THE INSIDES OUTTA THERE

Blogging from Greenland:

Blogging from Greenland: Sharing a trip to a place  no one goes Valley Advocate photographer Paul Shoul and GoNOMAD.com Editor Max Hartshorne went to Greenland in early November 2006. The opportunity to see the world's largest island and share this unknown place with readers was worth minus ten degree temperatures and ferocious wind chills that November brings to this sparsely settled and beautiful landscape. As the polar ice cap melts and recedes, Greenland is changing, and despite its remoteness, it is becoming a travel destination.  Air Greenland will begin regular air service between the US and Greenland in May 2007. Below are some of the daily posts from Max's blog, Readuponit, put up during the trip. Greenland: A First Glimpse of Life Above the Circle We landed in Greenland's biggest airport called Kangerlussuaq, above the Arctic circle, and stepped onto the windy tarmac. Inside the small airport, four youths stood in a row, as if waiting for us, they had features of eskimoes, the high cheekbones and Asian eyes.  We had a late dinner of reindeer, smoked halibut and salmon, and in the middle of the plate, a little bowl of 1/4" long white squares with black at the ends. This was whale blubber, chewy, indistinct taste, but the flavor stays with you the next day. We were shown to spartan rooms, (this is a former military base), with common bathrooms and I fell deep asleep while the wind howled outside. The next morning I got a glimpse of Greenland. It was stark, barren, absolutely treeless, and the only snow I saw was a dusting on a faraway mountain.  Our first excursion was into a huge 16-wheel tundra buggy that took us 38 km out onto the inland ice cap, that covers about 85% of this home-ruled Danish territory. The inland ice at the Russell Glacier was breathtaking -- aquamarine stripes in white, crevices and huge frozen streams where tons of water spews forth to a giant river during the summer. The glaciers here melt off more water in a day than NYC uses over 2 years! The billions of gallons that melt into the sea would make Saudi Arabia cry. In places there was clear ice, and walking on the pack, you looked for snow to step on so you wouldn't slip. There were

How to Apply for a Guinness World Re... by Jan Baz

How to Apply for a Guinness World Record Got an idea for a Guinness World Record but don't know how to get it verified? Whether you're planning on breaking an existing record or you've come up with a crazy new one, it's not difficult to send in your record and get it approved. Plus, it won't cost anything (unless you request an adjudicator, which will be explained later, for a small fee). Anyone can apply, but those under 18 must get approval from a parent or legal guardian first. Read the following article to learn how you can apply and increase your chances of having your very own Guinness World Record title under your belt. Steps 1 Choose a record. When thinking about what kind of record you want to break, keep the following in mind: Avoid going for non-records - Your claim must involve a breakable record! Is it the tallest, longest, heaviest, smelliest? You may be able to lick your elbow, but it's not considered a record! Guinness World Records Ltd. rarely accepts "firsts" -- unless it's a "significant first", by which they mean really significant, such as "First man on the moon" or "First movie to gross over $1 billion". Do not engage in animal cruelty - Don't overfeed your pets just to make them the heaviest or fattest. Your pets will suffer in the course of your attempt to break a record, which could result in their illness or even death. Do not attempt to break the law - Driving at high speeds on public roads is dangerous and illegal, so just don't do it. Do not attempt highly outrageous and dangerous stunts such as "teenage surgery" - Teenagers performing surgery or medical operations isn't cool: you're being a danger to society. As are "speedy house builders" who try to build homes in the fastest time. They come down just as fast! Make sure your record will be interesting to a wide range of people, such as "Tallest man" or "Most yo-yos spun on one hand".

Also known as Solanum quitoense or ‘little orange’ in Spanish, lulo fruit has many wonderful health benefits that can blow your mind (1)! 1. Boosts Immunity: Lulo fruit is rich in vitamins A and C.

One of them is promoting tissue health. Lulo contains a good amount of ascorbic acid, which is a great antioxidant. However, vitamin C plays a vital role in collagen development. It helps build collagen, which supports the connective tissue, blood vessels and the organs (3). 3. Improves Digestion:

How to Make a Bow Pencil Case by Jan Baz

About the Blog For many centuries the hearth (a stone or brick fireplace) was the central and most important feature of a home. It was indispensable because it heated the home and aided in food preparation. Some hearths are located in smithies instead of in homes. These hearths, known as forges, are used by smiths to heat metals. The metals become easier to shape when they are hot, allowing smiths to use tools such as hammers and chisels to forge the metals into various shapes. Given the roles of the hearth in the home and smithy, the term is now sometimes used to describe centers of vitality and creativity. In many ways, these definitions—a gathering place that provides warmth and nourishment, a place of formation, a center of vitality and creativity—embody the spirit of this blog. The posts featured here address the “stuff” of life—budgeting, communicating in marriage, housekeeping, maintaining friendships, etc. This blog is a venue for thoughtfully discussing these sorts of everyday topics in a way that facilitates growth into Christ’s likeness, supports cultivation of family, and provides inspiration for making a positive difference in the world. That’s quite a mouthful, so I sum it up by saying that OF THE HEARTH is a blog about faith, family, and forging a difference in our communities.

Nutrition-wise blog                         Is the Mediterranean diet more than a diet? The Mediterranean diet has come to be viewed as a model diet for good health. But a recent article in the journal "Nutrition Reviews" postulates that factors besides the diet itself might play a role in the benefits attributed to the Mediterranean diet. For example, could differences in types and varieties of foods and methods of preparation play a role?The Mediterranean diet gained notoriety following the Seven Countries Study, which compared diets of people living in southern Italy and Greece with the diets of people living in the U.S. and northern Europe in the 1970s.

SMoking Kills- Effect of smoking on your

  SMoking Kills- Effect of smoking on your   body Nicotine is the addictive drug in tobacco smoke that causes smokers to continue to smoke. Addicted smokers need enough nicotine over a day to ‘feel normal’ – to satisfy cravings or control their mood. How much nicotine a smoker needs determines how much smoke they are likely to inhale, no matter what type of cigarette they smoke. Along with nicotine, smokers inhale about 7,000 other chemicals in cigarette smoke. Many of these chemicals come from burning tobacco leaf. Some of these compounds are chemically active and trigger profound and damaging changes in the body. Tobacco smoke contains over 60 known cancer-causing chemicals. Smoking harms nearly every organ in the body, causing many diseases and reducing health in general. Dangerous chemicals in tobacco smoke The most damaging components of tobacco smoke are: Tar – this is the collective term for the various particles suspended in tobacco smoke. The particles contain chemicals, including several cancer-causing substances (carcinogens). Tar is sticky and brown, and stains teeth, fingernails and lung tissue. Tar contains the carcinogen benzo(a)pyrene. Carbon monoxide – this odourless gas is fatal in large doses because it takes the place of oxygen in the blood. Each red blood cell contains a protein called haemoglobin that transports oxygen molecules around the body. However, carbon monoxide binds to haemoglobin better than oxygen. In response, the body makes more red blood cells to carry the oxygen it needs, but it makes the blood thicker. This means that when the body demands more oxygen during exercise, less oxygen reaches the brain, heart, muscles and other organs. Hydrogen cyanide – the lungs contain tiny hairs (cilia) that help to clean the lungs by moving foreign substances out. Hydrogen cyanide stops this lung clearance system from working properly, which means the poisonous chemicals in tobacco smoke can build up inside the lungs. Other chemicals in smoke that damage the lungs include hydrocarbons, nitrous oxides, organic acids, phenols and oxidising agents. Oxidizing chemicals – these highly reactive chemicals (which include free radicals) can damage the heart muscles and blood vessels. They react with cholesterol, leading to the build-up of fatty material on artery walls. Their actions lead to heart disease, stroke and blood vessel disease. Metals – tobacco smoke contains dangerous metals including arsenic, cadmium and lead. Several of these metals are carcinogenic. Radioactive compounds – tobacco smoke contains radioactive compounds that are known to be carcinogenic. Effects of smoking tobacco on the body Inhaling tobacco smoke causes damage to many of the body’s organs and systems. Effects of smoking on the respiratory system The effects of tobacco smoke on the respiratory system include: irritation of the trachea (windpipe) and larynx (voice box) reduced lung function and breathlessness due to swelling and narrowing of the lung airways and excess mucus in the lung passages impairment of the lungs’ clearance system, leading to the build-up of poisonous substances, which results in lung irritation

8 Simple Ways To Get Rid Of White Hair At A Young

8 Simple Ways To Get Rid Of White Hair At A Young Age Are you just in your teens and already have white hair? Does that make you feel embarrassed when you are amongst your peers? White hair during a young age might be a common problem, but it does sap the self-image of the individual. How can any youngster get rid of white hair? Are there any simple tips? Well, there are! And that is what this post is all about! Read on and get to know of the ways in which you can prevent premature hair whitening! 1. Heat Protection: This is a preventive as well as curative measure against hair whitening. Excessive heat and sweat make the scalp dry. The hair follicles become weak and start to age. As a result, hair goes grey and white. Use caps and umbrellas whenever you step out in the sun. Avoid hot water bath; and also, say no to direct heat from blowers that you use to pat your hair dry. If you have already damaged your hair due to heat, apply cool hair packs to reverse the damage. The scalp gets moisturized with a regular use of such cool conditioner hair packs. Once the normal pH level of the scalp gets restored, white hair follicles wither away. It further promotes new hair growth. 2. Eat Vitamin B12 Rich Food:

Tingling sensation and numbness are disorders that can cause quite a stir in your life. But then, what causes these conditions? And what are the remedies for it? Want to have the answers? Then go ahead with the post! Causes Of Tingling: Tingling sensations are common conditions that most people experience in their life. They are usually temporary and are a result of awkward postures or pressure applied on a certain body part. The characteristic ‘pins and needles’ effect usually happens with inactivity. Although usually temporary, you can suffer from outbreaks of tingling and sometimes even chronic tingling.

Causes Of Numbness: Numbness is another manifestation of tingling and usually occurs in the same way. Nerve pressure or inactivity or damage is a leading cause of numbness. Sometimes other conditions like tendon pain and repetitive motion syndrome lead to numbness in fingers and toes as well. Sometimes, lack of blood circulation can also lead to numbness and tingling sensations (2). Now that we know about the causes of tingling and numbness, let’s look at some natural remedies to cure these ailments!

How to Improve Your Sense of Smell

How to Improve Your Sense of Smell There are many reasons you may wish to improve your sense of smell. For one thing, it's closely linked to your sense of taste. Try tasting food with your nose pinched! It is also a required skill to describe aromas in wine, coffee and beer, even tea. And in general, being able to smell the subtleties in the scent of a flower, or someone's skin, or autumn leaves, can offer a deeper dimension of enjoyment. Also, did you know that the average human nose can detect nearly 10,000 distinct scents? Steps - Watch a 10 second video 1 Pay more attention to what you already smell. People often say "use it or lose it" about muscles, but the same can be applied towards senses. The more you use your senses, the better you get! Learn how to describe smells. You might even want to keep an olfactory journal! For extra practice, have someone hold various things to your nose while you're blindfolded and see if you can identify the smells. - Watch a 10 second video 2 Note how certain smells make you feel. The nerves that sense smell are directly connected to the emotional part of your brain, leaving your rationality out of the equation. Studies found, for example, that the smell of fast food wrappers, fresh bread or pastry increase the likelihood of road rage; peppermint and cinnamon improve concentration and decrease irritability in drivers; and lemon and coffee promote clear thinking and high concentration levels in general.[1]

How to Begin People Watching

How to Begin People Watching People watching involves observing people to get a feel for the beauty and rhythm of the community around us. People watching is amazing. You can have some of the funniest laughs ever with you and your friends, especially in a place full of bad scruffs. For some people watchers, it's about creativity, using the moments of watching to try and guess at another person's story just from mere observation, and embracing the fun of what is, in effect, an amateur social science. People watchers observe speech in action, relationship interactions, body language, and activities; it's also common to include listening in to conversations. Indeed, all the senses can be put to good use when people watching, even down to trying to guess a person's perfume or aftershave as they walk by. Here are some suggestions for enjoying the art of people watching. Steps 1 Decide the parameters of your people watching. It helps to know why you're watching. There can be any number of reasons but the main impetus is observation of how other people live and behave and guessing at their motivations and life stories. And people watching is not about feeling superior to others or judging them; more than anything, you're a non-judgmental observer with a penchant for unearthing life's stories as an art of love and empathy. Some reasons for people watching include: It's relaxing and enjoyable. Seeing other people have fun, dressed up, going about daily activities is enjoyable and even soothing as you sit somewhere comfortable like a cafe or park bench under the sun. People are fascinating, so this reason really needs no more explanation! It passes time while you're waiting or while you're sitting with people who don't interest you much but you're obliged to stay with them. It restores a sense of wonder. Children are renowned for people watching and just by trying it again, you can regain this sense of wonder for a brief moment in time. It's informative. If you're writing a book or developing characters for a play, observing people can be an excellent way to find traits and styles for your characters. In addition, if you're an actor, observing other people is a window to other ways of standing, walking, talking, and interacting in a natural environment. And it's a great opportunity to test your learning or theories about body language. It's an excellent source of artwork or photography. If you're an artist or a photographer, unaware people can make brilliant subjects. It's inspiring. Watching people can lead to writing a symphony, movie script, or a blog post.[1] It's a healthy alternative to Facebook or Instagram stalking. 2 Practice naturalistic observation not intrusive nosiness. Naturalistic observation is the practice of observing subjects in their natural habitat.[2] This means being unobtrusive, unnoticed, and non-interfering. The moment you become any of these things, the spell is broken and you've interacted and it's no longer "people watching". Realize that some places are better for people watching than others. New York City, Paris, Miami, Rio de Janeiro and Venice present ideal venues for people watching because people know they're on display, and being seen. Any city where people dress up to show the world their fashion flair or sense of style is likely to be an ideal people watching place. Less so the country town or the little city unless you can do so with great care and not draw attention to yourself. Some observation methods are likely to be more acceptable in some places than in others. Taking photos of people in New York City usually won't have anyone blink an eyelid; doing so in the only main street of a local town might raise concerns. Know where it's fine to take shots of people and where it's frowned upon and don't cross that line. If someone does see you taking photos of them and they don't like it, oblige them by erasing the shot; this isn't about causing bad feelings.

Colon cancer, just like other forms of cancer, can be deadly if not prevented at the right time. So, how can you easily prevent colon cancer without expensive medicines? And what are its causes and symptoms? This post has the answers! Continue reading! Colon Cancer – A Summary: Colon or colorectal cancer is a type of cancer that occurs in the large intestine. Found in the lower part of your digestive tract, it is also known as colon. Rectal cancer is the growth of abnormal cells in the last several inches of your colon. When they are put together, it is called colorectal cancer. Colon cancer begins very slowly and gradually. Noncancerous lumps of cells, known as adenomatous polyps begin to develop. Polyps may be small and tend to produce a few symptoms. This is the reason most doctors recommend daily screening tests so that colon cancer and polyps can be identified. Taking medication daily and treating yourself from the very beginning will soon heal you from this condition. Symptoms Of Colon Cancer: There are many cases of colon cancer that come with no symptoms. But here are a few that do show up when you are afflicted with this disease! Diarrhea, constipation and nauseous feelings. Sudden weight loss. Very narrow stools. Unexpected changes in bowel habits. Feeling of tenderness or pain in the abdominal section. Causes Of Colon Cancer: Colorectal cancer is one of the biggest reasons for cancer-related deaths all over the world today. However, if you are diagnosed early, chances are you will be completely cured.   There is no single cause of cancer as such. All of them begin as benign polyps that slowly develop into cancer. There are higher chances of developing colon cancer if you can relate to any of the following: Your age is above 60 years. You come from a European or African-American descent. You have colorectal polyps. You have a family history of colon cancer.

How to Make a Boat in a Nutshell

How to Make a Boat in a Nutshell Walnut shell boats are quaint little models to make at home with the kids or just for your own amusement. They actually float, making it possible to have races with friends when you've made a few. For young and old alike, walnut boats are super fun. Steps 1 Assemble the items needed. These are listed below under "Things You'll Need." Walnuts still in their shells can be purchased from farmers markets, fruit and vegetable grocers, Asian markets and some supermarkets. Or perhaps you have some growing on your backyard tree if you're lucky! 2 Crack the walnut as carefully as you can. Make sure that it is in two perfect halves. A hammer would be the best tool to use, but with a bit of patience you might be able to use a knife. Don't forget to take the nut out! Keep a few walnuts with you just in case you make some mistakes. In fact, if you're aiming to make a few, have a little production line ready to go. 3 Cut a small shape out of the paper to create a sail. It can be a rectangle or a few triangles; get creative, although you might like to try different shapes to see which sail best.

How to Chlorinate a Well

How to Chlorinate a Well   Having your own well provides you with a source of fresh water. Over time, however, the well can become contaminated with bacteria and other harmful pathogens. One effective treatment for this is to add chlorine bleach to the well water, which will kill the bacteria. This process takes a day or two, so it's best to prepare yourself for minimal water usage. Part 1 of 3: Preparing to Chlorinate 1 Know when you need to chlorinate your well. It is a good idea to chlorinate your well at least once a year, preferably in the spring. Outside of that, there are several other circumstances under which chlorinating your well becomes necessary: If your annual water test results show that bacteria is present. If you notice a change in the color, smell or taste of your drinking water, you should test for bacteria and will need to chlorinate the water if the test comes up positive. You should also determine the water constituent that caused the change in water quality and take measures to treat the water to remove anything unpleasant or unsafe. Your local environmental agency will be able to provide direction in this endeavor. If the well is new, or has recently undergone repairs, or new pipes have been added. If the well has been contaminated by flood water, or if the water turns muddy or cloudy after a rainfall.[1] When you are preparing to abandon the well. 2 Gather the necessary supplies. Chlorine: Obviously you will need chlorine in order to chlorinate your well. You could use HTH chlorine tablets or granules, but this article assumes that you are using a 5% solution (or greater) of regular household chlorine bleach. Just be sure to use an unscented variety. You may need up to 10 gallons (37.9 L) of bleach, depending on the volume of water within your well and the strength of the bleach. Chlorine test kit: A chlorine test kit can be used to precisely measure chlorine levels in the water, rather than relying on scent alone. These test kits are usually used for swimming pools and can be found at any pool or spa supply store. Make sure to get OTO liquid drops instead of the paper strips, as the paper strips only indicate chlorine levels in the range that is ideal for swimming pools. Garden hose: To recirculate the water in the well, you will need a clean garden hose. Some sources recommend using a hose with a 1⁄2 inch (1.3 cm) diameter, rather than the standard 5⁄8 inch (1.6 cm) size, however this is up to you. You should cut the male end of the hose at a steep angle. 3 Calculate the volume of the well. In order to determine how much bleach you will need to adequately disinfect your well, you will need to calculate the volume of water it contains. To do this, you will need to multiply the depth of the water column (in feet) by the gallons per linear foot for your well. This depends on the diameter of the well or casing (in inches). To get the depth of water in your well, you will need to measure the distance from the bottom of the well to the waterline. You can do this using a fishing line and a moderately heavy weight. The line will remain taut until the weight hits the bottom, at which time it will go limp. Once this happens, retrieve the line and measure the wet portion of the string with a tape measure. Alternatively, you can mark the line at the top of the well casing and measure the total depth of the well, then subtract the distance from the top of the casing to the surface of the water within the well. This can be found by tying a short stick securely to the line, lowering the stick into the well, marking the line when it goes slack, and measuring the length of the line from the stick to your mark. Alternatively, a rough measurement should be stamped on a plate affixed to the slab poured around the well casing or you can contact the drilling company who constructed the well. They are required to keep records on all of the wells they've worked on in most jurisdictions. The number of gallons per linear foot is related to the diameter of the well casing. This number should appear on the well log. Drilled wells will usually have a diameter between 4 and 10 inches, whereas bored wells range between 12 and 26. Once you know the diameter of your well, you can use this table to figure out the gallons per linear foot of water within your well. Now that you have measurements for the depth of the water in the well (in feet) and the amount of water per linear foot in gal/foot), you can multiply these numbers by each other to get the total volume of water in your well. You will need to use 3 pints of 5% chlorine bleach for every 100 gallons (378.5 L) of water in your well, plus an extra 3 pints to treat the water in the household plumbing.

How to Be a Responsible Host by Jan Baz

How to Be a Responsible Host When hosting a dinner party or picnic, there are a few key obligations on you to act as a responsible host in order to ensure that your guests have a good time and travel home safely. Here are some ideas to assist you. Steps 1 Remove objects that can be broken or damaged during the evening. It is better to keep things out of harm's way and avoid potential embarrassment and even injury to guests who might accidentally break something, as well as avoiding you the disappointment of a broken heirloom or expensive item! 2 Check for allergies and dietary preferences beforehand. If possible, ask people about dietary preferences and allergies prior to the event. If this is not possible, ask on their arrival. Always have some basic back-ups tucked away somewhere for those who are with faith-based food restrictions, vegetarians, vegans, gluten-intolerant, dairy-free, egg-free, and for dieters. It sounds worse than it really is; for example, you can easily deal with all of these people with a single dish such as quinoa salad, roasted or steamed veggies, rice pasta main course, and a fruit salad for dessert is always an easy option! 3 Do not overstock your bar. Aim for about 1 drink per person

How to Scrimshaw by Jan Baz

How to Scrimshaw   Scrimshaw is an American folk art form once perfected by New England sailors. They would etch designs onto whale ivory with needles or knives and color it with ink or soot. While the whaling trade is no longer viable or legal, the art of scrimshaw lives on. Part 1 of 5: Finding Materials 1 Shop around old salvage yards or thrift stores for small pieces of ivory. If you are using whale ivory, make sure it was harvested before 1972, when the Marine Protection Act outlawed whaling in America. You can also use old ivory piano keys, bone or white acrylic.[1] 2 Buy a pen-like X-acto knife with a replaceable head. Insert a pin into the front and secure the pinhead inside the knife. 3 Get some good quality beeswax, black, brown or blue ink and some acetone nail polish remover. Part 2 of 5: Sealing the Surface 1 Apply beeswax to the surface of the bone or ivory to seal it. If possible, attach a disk to a Dremel tool and apply the beeswax to the disc. Then, apply the beeswax evenly to the surface of the ivory, coating it completely. Why seal the ivory? Ivory is very porous. Sealing keeps the ink that’s tattooed into the ivory from spilling over into unwanted sections, leaving an inky cloud. When properly sealed, the ivory will absorb ink only into the grooves that you etch into it. 2 Use a cloth and work the beeswax into the surface by hand for five minutes if you don’t have a tool with which to apply it. Rub the wax cloth over and over against the ivory until it has a uniform surface. 3 With a clean cloth, buff the ivory until all the beeswax has been removed. The ivory should look shiny but not feel very waxy. Set the beeswax cloth aside, since you will need it later. Part 3 of 5: Transferring a Design

How to Improve Your Personality

How to Improve Your Personality   Your personality changes many times during your life.[1] Although you may not notice it happening, as you grow older behaviors become ingrained. The key to improving your personality is changing behaviors to reinforce good personality traits and limit negative personality traits. Grab your pen and paper and get ready to be introspective. Part 1 of 3: Identifying Traits 1 Sit down and list your positive personality traits. Try to number them in order of how confident you are that you possess these traits. For example, traits include good listener, outgoing, expressive, introspective, thoughtful or intelligent. 2 List your negative personality traits. These are the things that people tend to respond to, or things you think stand in your way. For example, shy, angry, talkative, judgmental or nervous. Keep in mind that positive and negative are subjective in this scenario. Someone might think they are too outgoing or that being talkative is a positive thing. Personality changes should be based on your opinions and desires for self-improvement. It is most likely harder to make this list than your first list. Take your time and consider how your personality when you're with others or when you're alone, since these may be the main things you want to change. 3 Put a line through anything you don’t want to change, at least not right now.You can’t instantly change everything about your personality. 4

How to Brighten up a Dark Room

How to Brighten up a Dark Room Three Methods:  Getting Creative With Lighting and Color Sprucing Up the Accessories and Furniture Making Structural Changes If there's a room in your house that's a bit dim, there are many tricks you can use to brighten it up right away. Changing the lighting and color will make a dramatic difference, and choosing lighter furniture and decorations can also help a room feel spacious and bright. If you want to make a bigger investment, adding windows and replacing the flooring will change your room from a cave to a haven. See Step 1 to learn more about how to brighten up a room. Method 1 of 3: Getting Creative With Lighting and Color 1 Paint the ceiling white. If the room's ceiling is painted a dark color, or has dark wooden beams, it is probably casting a pall over the entire room. Buy a can or two of white paint and give the ceiling a fresh coat. The bright white will reflect light instead of absorbing it, and you'll be amazed at what a difference it makes. If you prefer to use color instead of plain white, try a pale yellow, mint or cream. Even if you don't paint the walls white, painting the ceiling white will still make a big difference. 2 Limit accent colors. You might be tempted to paint the room your favorite rich, deep color, but it's best to save bright and bold colors for accent walls or trim. In a dark room, a deep color won't look brilliant - it'll just add to the dark feel of the space. If you absolutely must use dark blue, green, red or another rich color, choose one small wall to paint, and paint the rest in a much lighter color. Another way to incorporate some color without making the space darker is by adding a stenciled accent trim along the ceiling. Buy or make a stencil in a shape that suits your taste - flowers, leaves, and abstract designs are popular - and use your favorite paint color to make a pretty pattern. Painting the baseboards and door trim a contrasting color is another way to add a festive touch to the room without making it too dark. 3 Make full use of natural light. If you're working with a dark room, chances are you don't have a lot of natural light coming in, but it's important to make the most of what you have. If your windows are covered with dark shades or blinds, you're blocking out your best chance for brightening up the room. Instead of keeping your blinds closed, try the following: Choose airy, light-colored window coverings that don't completely block out the light. For example, cream-colored linen or canvas curtains will provide privacy while still allowing the sunshine to filter into the room. If you prefer blinds, look for cloth blinds in a light fabric that isn't completely opaque. Avoid wooden or plastic blinds that block out all of the light. 4 Replace overhead lights with soft perimeter lights. Harsh overhead lighting can actually highlight the fact that a room is naturally dark. Instead of flooding the space with fluorescent lighting, choose your artificial lighting carefully so that it looks as natural and pleasant as possible. Track lighting can really brighten a space without creating a harsh atmosphere. Use plenty of strategically-placed floor lamps with light-colored shades to diffuse light all over the room. 5 Use diffused lighting. If you have a dark corner or a room where there's no ceiling fixture, use multiple lights pointed towards the ceiling and walls. This reflected light provides a soft, overhead glow which minimizes harsh shadows. Candles shouldn't be overlooked as a pleasant source

How to Keep Roses Fresh by Jan Baz

How to Keep Roses Fresh Three Parts:Selecting the Freshest RosesPreparing the StemsDisplaying the Roses Roses are beautiful, fragrant flowers that come in a variety of colors and sizes. Given the right care, roses can stay fresh for a week and a half or more after being cut. To keep your roses from wilting, be sure to change their water every few days, use a very clean vase and keep them in a cool spot. See Step 1 to learn more about how to keep roses fresh. Part 1 of 3: Selecting the Freshest Roses 1 Cut your own roses early in the morning. If you're cutting roses from your own rosebush to display indoors, cut them as early as possible in the morning, before it gets hot outside. Cutting them while it's still cool will keep them from wilting just after cutting. Immediately after cutting the roses, put the stems in a clean bucket of fresh water. The night before cutting your roses, water the rosebush. Well-hydrated roses will stay fresher longer than roses cut from a bush that hasn't been recently watered.[1] Cut the stems at a 45 degree angle using a clean pair of hand pruners. 2 Buy cut roses from a florist you trust. If you're not cutting your own roses, try to buy them from a well-reputed florist, preferably one with whom you have a relationship. That way you'll be able to get your hands on roses that were very recently cut, rather than roses that may have been sitting there for a week. Ask the florist which flowers arrived that very morning, and try to select the very freshest roses possible. Choose roses from the refrigeration unit, since roses that are kept cool last longer than those that have been sitting out at room temperature. 3 Squeeze the roses where the petals meet the stem. This is a sure way to tell whether roses are still fresh. When you're examining roses before making your purchase, gently squeeze them at their base, where the petals come together at the stem. If it feels loose and squishy, the roses are old, and you should avoid them. If it feels firm and taut, the roses are fresh. 4 Inspect the roses for bruised or broken petals. Look for roses with well-formed, colorful petals. Examine the tips of the petals to make sure they aren't bruised or brown. When you bring the roses home, you can remove a few outer petals that have been damaged, but there's not much you can do to improve the appearance of damaged tips on the inner petals. Intact petals are more attractive and will stay fresh longer than bruised ones.

Is It Safe To Eat Potato Sprouts?

Is It Safe To Eat Potato Sprouts? How safe do you think is eating potatoes with sprouts? Did you ever wonder if there might be any ill effects a potato with sprouts might cause? Some say it is absolutely safe while others claim that sprouted potatoes can be lethal. But then, which is true? This post can give you the answer. Would you like to know? Read on! Science Behind Potato Sprouts: Mature potatoes that have become soft and have grown produce two lethal chemicals; solanine and alpha-chaconine. They are lethal for humans as they are herbicides and are used to ward off pests from eating the potato plant. Potato sprouts are nothing but warning signs that tell the potato has undergone chemical reactions and that it is no longer healthy. As a potato over-ripens, the carbohydrates in the tuber get converted into sugars, and these undergo further conversion into alkaloids known as solanine and alpha-chaconine. Incidentally, these alkaloids are highly concentrated in the stems, leaves, the potato sprouts, and as well as the green-coloured

How to Make a Basket from a Garden Hose by Jan Baz

How to Make a Basket from a Garden Hose Three Methods:Identifying a Purpose for the BasketCreating the Hose BasketMaking the Handle Create a unique and handy outdoor basket for your gardening tools or other small outdoor equipment using a regular garden hose. Method 1 of 3: Identifying a Purpose for the Basket 1 Identify where this outdoor “basket” will be helpful. Is there an area in the backyard where the gardening tools get thrown in the corner or do you need a handy holder for swim items like goggles, flippers and pool toys? Figure out how you will integrate the basket into your outdoor décor, as this will likely effect the color and style of the basket you create. 2 Choose a color according to your purpose. While you could just create the basket from an old garden hose you have laying around, it's probably best to spring for a new hose in a color that matches your outdoor décor. If you hit the lawn and garden store you will most likely have several colors to accommodate your needs––they may even have some fancy patterns! Consider matching the zip tie color to the hose color or purchase zip ties in a complementary, contrasting color. Method 2 of 3: Creating the Hose Basket 1 Bend the blunt hose nozzle in

How to Build a Lamp by Jan Baz

How to Build a Lamp Three Parts:PreparationSetupFinalization Got an odd piece that you want to display, but aren't sure what to do with it? How about making a lamp? You can make lamps out of almost anything, and they provide decor and ambience, in addition to making great conversation pieces. If your craftsy side is feeling neglected and you want to spark it back into action, here's a perfect project for you. Part 1 of 3: Preparation 1 Find a base. The base for your lamp should be sturdy enough to stand on its own, even after you add lamp apparatus and a shade on top. If you have a hollow base that you need to stabilize, consider partially filling it with something like marbles or sand. Some ideas for lamp bases that you could use: Wine bottles Log or timber Wooden pails or buckets Toys or figurines Hollowed-out books 2 Buy a lamp kit. These can be found at most hardware stores. Note that it's possible to purchase the pieces separately, but buying them together will ensure a better fit. If you do buy the cord separately, choose a #18 size cord. If you don't want to buy a lamp kit, and instead want to purchase the items separately, you'll need: Detachable harp Cord set Push-through socket and socket shell Finial Assorted hardware, like nuts, bolts and washers 3 Prepare the base for the rod. The rod is a hollow tube that will run the cord up through the bottom of your base to the lightbulb at the top. Depending on your base, you may have to drill or cut holes wide enough for the rod at the top and bottom of the lamp. If necessary, you can trim the rod with a hacksaw or pipe cutters, but it's best (and easier) to choose a base that's fitted to your rod. Sawing your rod down to size is not ideal. 4 Stabilize the bottom of the base. Your lamp kit might come with a piece meant to stabilize the bottom of your base. If it doesn't, simply purchase rubber stoppers. Affix these at intervals around the base to prevent sliding and lift the base slightly off the table, allowing room for the cord. Part 2 of 3: Setup

How to Clean a Fireplace

How to Clean a Fireplace A crackling fire is a domestic delight, not only a cheery sight on cool evenings but a reliable source of alternative heat. However, soot deposits eventually condense into creosote, a tarry, toxic, and potentially lethal substance that can actually set your chimney on fire. Cleaning a masonry fireplace and chimney is a messy job but, with the correct equipment, not especially complex or time-consuming. The peace of mind and self-confidence in creating a safe space for your fire is well worth this relatively small investment. Steps 1 Protect against the mess. Wait at least until the next morning after your last fire. Dress in old clothes and put on a pair of gloves, since you’re going to be touching moderately toxic substances. Sturdy leather will do but rubber household cleaning gloves are best. Put some sheets of newspaper on the fireplace floor, arranging them so they go up the fireplace walls by several inches (centimeters); they will catch the soot you dislodge. Protect your furniture, carpet, and floors with a cheap plastic drop cloth. A large trash can lined with at least two plastic bags will also prove helpful. 2 Hold your hand over the ashes to check for residual warmth. If the fire was a large one, probe through the ashes with a poker or fireplace shovel. Pick up the fireplace grate or andirons and take them outside for later cleaning. Slowly shovel the ashes into a metal bucket or use a shop vacuum. 3 Inspect the chimney. Grab a flashlight, get on your knees, and look up into the chimney all the way to the flue, which usually looks like a small metal door near the chimney top. The flue is often controlled by a metal pull; give that a yank and if the little door moves you know you’re looking at the flue. You want that open until you’ve finished cleaning. You will almost certainly see soot, brown or black powdery residue. That’s easily disposed of. If your flashlight beam picks out material that is dry and crackling to the touch in thick and flaky layers or shiny, hardened black deposits, you’ve got creosote, and the time to get rid of it is right now.

How to Make a Lava Lamp with Househo... by Jan Baz

How to Make a Lava Lamp with Household Ingredients Two Methods:Making a Temporary Lava LampMaking a Permanent Lava Lamp Have you ever caught yourself being hypnotized by a lava lamp? You hold it in your hand, move it slightly, and watch as the liquid quivers and separates into different shapes and colors. Then you look at the price tag - and put it back. To do your wallet a favor and make a lava lamp with household ingredients, follow these instructions. Method 1 of 2: Making a Temporary Lava Lamp 1 Rinse out a large soda or water bottle. Any tightly sealable container works, but you probably have an empty water bottle laying around somewhere. Try to find one that holds at least 16 ounces or 500 milliliter, so you can clearly see the display. This method is safe for kids to follow on their own, and much faster and easier than making a permanent lava lamp. Young kids can ask an adult to do the pouring for them. 2 Add oil, water, and food coloring to the bottle. Fill the bottle ¾ of the way full with vegetable oil, then top it off with water and about 10 drops of food coloring (or enough to make the solution appear fairly dark). 3 Add salt or an Alka-Seltzer tablet to the water. If using a salt shaker, sprinkle it in for about five seconds.[1] for a more exciting, fizzing lava lamp, instead take an Alka-Seltzer tablet, break it into a few pieces, and toss them all in. Any other tablet labeled "effervescent" will work. These are often sold as Vitamin C tablets at drugstores. 4 Put the cap on and tip the bottle back and forth (optional). This will cause the tiny droplets of colored water moving around inside the oil to join together, making bigger lava-squirt blobs. That's what scientists call them, anyway. Add more salt or another effervescent tablet whenever the blobs start moving. 5 Place a strong flashlight or searchlight under the bottle. This will illuminate the bubbles for maximum effect. But don't leave your bottle on top of a heated surface! Plastic will melt and you'll get oil everywhere. 6 Understand what's happening. Oil and water never mix into one fluid, instead just breaking into the strange blobs you see slipping past each other. Adding the last ingredient really stirs things up. Here's why: Salt sinks down to the bottom of the bottle, dragging a blob of oil with it. Once the salt breaks up and dissolves in the water, the oil floats up to the top again.

How to Make a Portable Reading Lamp

How to Make a Portable Reading Lamp Three Methods:Portable reading lamp from a milk jugPortable reading light from glowsticksTurning a flashlight into a lamp When you're camping, traveling by car, sleeping under the stars or having a sleepover, reading by sufficiently diffused light can be a challenge. While a headlamp, flashlight or lantern might do the trick, they have drawbacks such as being brightly focused on one spot and not across all of the book page or they might be noisy or inadequate for others to read by too. The tote anywhere reading light is a very simple solution to this, by creating a light that gently diffuses light in a way that lets you read in comfort. Method 1 of 3: Portable reading lamp from a milk jug 1 Gather the items needed. Make sure that the milk jug is clean, to avoid bad odors. 2 Fill the gallon milk jug with water. Screw the lid on tight to prevent spills. 3 Attach the headlamp so that it sits around the middle of the milk jug. Face the lamp inward. 4 Use. Simply switch on the headlamp. A gentle reading light will diffuse throughout the area where you're reading. This lamp will sit solidly inside a tent, a camping vehicle, a car, on a camping or picnic table, or wherever you need it. The light from this hack is much gentler on your eyes than other portable lights and you should find reading by it very comfortable. 5 Finished. Method 2 of 3: Portable reading light from glowsticks This light can be used for reading by closely (such as inside a tent) or for photography illumination. 1

Objection

 Ghost Rider in Zelve Valley The open air museum of Zelve tells much the same story as other places in Cappadocia. Previously a monastery retreat from the 9th to the 13th centuries, in later years, Turks and Greeks lived side by side in the caves, carved out of the soft volcanic rock. It was a fully functioning community until the end of the Turkish War of Independence in 1923 that resulted in the Treaty of Lausanne requiring Greeks to return back to their homeland and vice versus. Then in the 1950s, falling rocks were a safety hazard so local Turks deserted the old village to move to modern housing nearby. These days, Zelve Valley and its old cave homes are integrated into the tourism market as an open air museum, albeit they are not as popular as the UNESCO world heritage site of Goreme, also in Cappadocia. The plus side of this is that I avoided the

How to Build a Book Lamp

How to Build a Book Lamp For the avid reader, nothing could be cooler in your home than an actual book lamp. Using old hardback books, you can create an unusual, yet functional lamp that will shed better light on some of your favorite literary works. Steps 1 Stack books together to form your lamp base. Consider how you’d like them displayed and whether you want all titles facing the same way and/or if you are looking for a symmetrical or disorganized order. 2 Open the top hardcover of the first book and screw through the pages in order to connect the books together. Screw all the way to the bottom of the book. 3 Turn book over and add a screw to the bottom of the book, following the same hole you made when you screwed together the top of the book. 4 Add the pancake box to the top of the book. First trace the box using your pencil. Cut into the top of the book with either your Dremel or the box knife; following the pencil lines. You are cutting into the top of the book to make room for the electrical box. Go over the circumference circle until you’ve created a hole deep enough for the box to sit inside the hole.

How to Crochet a Butterfly

How to Crochet a Butterfly Two Methods:3D Butterfly2D Butterfly Outline Crochet butterflies can be used for a variety of purposes, including appliques and similar decorations. There are different ways to crochet a butterfly, so you should choose one that matches the look you're interested in. Method 1 of 2: 3D Butterfly 1 Form a circle. Attach the yarn to your crochet hook using a slipknot, then make six chain stitches. Slip stitch the last stitch of your chain together with the first stitch of your chain to create a circle. If you do not know how to make a slipknot, chain stitch, and/or slip stitch, please see the "Tips" section of the article for instructions. 2 Double crochet into the round. Chain stitch three times, then work two double crochets into the center of the round. Chain once more before continuing onto the next step. Note that the initial set of three chains counts as your first double crochet stitch. As such, when you are counting your stitches, you will count three double crochets instead of two. If you do not know how to double crochet, check the "Tips" section for further information. 3 Double crochet seven more sets. Work three double crochets into the center of the round, followed by another one chain stitch. Repeat this pattern six more times. When done, you will have eight sets of three consecutive double crochets. 4 Close the round. Slip stitch into the third chain stitch of your previous chain-three set to finish off your first round. Note that you will have eight spaces formed by each chain-one you worked into the previous round. These spaces will end up becoming the butterfly wings. 5 Advance to the second round. Work a slip stitch into the first chain-one space from the previous round, then chain two. This will count as the first double crochet of your next double crochet set. 6 Finish off the double crochet set. Work two double crochets into the same chain-one space used in the previous step. Chain one again, then make three more double crochets into the same space. 7 Double crochet around the rest of your second round. Make a set of three double crochets, one chain, and three more double crochets into each of the remaining seven chain-one spaces. When done, slip stitch the last loop into the second chain of the chain-two you initially created for this round. You should be left with eight sets of six double crochets, each separated by a chain-one space. 8 Advance to the third round. Work a slip stitch into the first chain-one space of the previous round, then work two chain stitches. This steps also counts as the first double crochet of your next set. 9 Create the first double crochet set of this round. Work seven double crochets into the same chain-one space, then single crochet into the stitch lying between the two chain-one spaces. This single crochet will anchor the wing, keeping it rounded. If you do not know how to single crochet, please see the "Tips" section for more information.

How to Make Wire Stitch Markers

How to Make Wire Stitch Markers All you need to make these simple stitch markers is a bit of wire (paper clips will work) and a pair of fine-point pliers. Because they are an open loop, these stitch markers can be inserted and removed at any point in the knitting or crochet process. Steps 1 Start with a spool of craft wire or straighten a paper clip or two. Any small paper clip will do, whether or not it is plastic coated, as long as it it is made of wire. Craft wire, if you have it, is a little softer and easier to work.  2 Grip the very end of the wire in the pliers. Loop the end of the wire closely around the tip of the pliers.

How to Crochet a Rug

How to Crochet a Rug Two Methods:Oval RugMandala Rug Crocheted rugs can give a room a touch of quaint flair. As with most crochet projects, the instructions vary depending on the type of rug you want to make. Most are fairly time-consuming but otherwise simple. Method 1 of 2: Oval Rug[1] 1 Use two strands of yarn. To create a more durable rug, you will need to work with two skeins of yarn at the same time. Treat the two strands as one as you make your stitches. 2 Tie the two pieces of yarn onto the hook. Use an adjustable knot called a slip knot. 3 Chain stitch and single crochet your first round. Make 21 chain stitches to provide your rug with a foundation. Work 40 single crochets into this foundational chain. Make your first single crochet into the second chain stitch away from your hook after you complete the foundational chain. Single crochet 20 times down one side of the chain. Single crochet another 20 times down the other side of the chain. 4 Single crochet the second round and increase. Make the second round by working another single crochet into each of the 40 stitches completed in the previous round. Increase twice at both the starting and finishing ends of your first round. To make one increase, chain stitch once. To make two increases, simply chain stitch twice. 5 Single crochet the third round and increase. The third round will essentially be the same as the second. Work another series of single crochets into the all of the stitches of the previous round, including the increases, until you travel around the entire perimeter of the piece. For this round, you need to increase three times at both ends. To increase three times, make three chain stitches. 6 Repeat this pattern for five more rounds. For rounds four, five, six, seven, and eight, single crochet once into each of the stitches from the previous row, including the increases. Increase at both ends for each round. Continue adding an extra increase for each round. Round four gets four increases. Round five gets five increases. Round six gets six increases. Round seven gets seven increases. Round eight gets eight increases. Note that if the rug begins to seem too loose or floppy, you can reduce the number of increases you use at the ends of each round. 7 Change colors before continuing. Change colors before making the ninth round. After you do, make another five rounds using the same pattern: single crochet once into each stitch of the previous round. Continue adding increases at the ends of each round. Round nine gets nine increases.

Create a Quote Teapot

Create a Quote Teapot Three Methods:Selecting a suitable teapot and quotesTest driving the markersCreating the Quote Teapot Whether you're looking for a unique gift for a loved one or want to try your hand at crafting on ceramic, covering a ceramic teapot inspired by quotes from a favorite author will provide you with a wonderful opportunity. You will need a ceramic teapot, colorful Sharpie pens and 25 to 100 quotes from your favorite author. Method 1 of 3: Selecting a suitable teapot and quotes 1 Choose a white, ceramic teapot. The teapot needs to be large enough to hold all your quotes. Depending on how large you write and the number of quotes you’ve gathered, base the teapot's size on the amount of writing that will be transferred to the teapot. The quotes will be written using permanent marker, so check that the teapot material will hold the ink and allow for quick drying. For a standout look, go for white. Otherwise, if you find a dark colored teapot, use reverse (white, metallic or light colored) markers. 2 Wash and dry the ceramic teapot. Remove any dust or debris before writing on the teapot. Simply wipe clean with warm, soapy water, rinse with clean water and then dry with a soft cloth. 3 Gather your quotes. If you're creating this for another person, find a book penned by his or her favorite author and dig up as many quotes as possible. Or, use online quote websites for fasting sorting. You might even like to ask directly for quotes that your recipient holds dear, in order to make the teapot extra special. It's a good idea to write out or type up the quotes to keep on hand as you create the teapot. You can reference your sheet as you write, making it easier.

Make a Ceiling Look Higher

Make a Ceiling Look Higher Low ceilings are often found in modern homes. If you have a low ceiling that is making you feel a little cramped and closed in, here are some simple decorating tricks to make the ceiling feel less closed in. Steps 1 Paint the ceiling with white paint. White will create a sense of height and expansiveness and it will reflect a lot of light, giving rise to the sense of increased height. There are two schools of thought as to whether or not a matte or high gloss finish is better for making a ceiling appear higher, so both are provided here for your own assessment: Apartment Therapy states that high or semi gloss paint is ideal because it will create a reflective sheen and the reflection will give the impression of height and additional space.[1] On the other hand, Art & Home states that a matte finish is better because it allows the ceiling to "disappear", with all of its faults being subsumed under the matte finish.[2] 2 Consider lighter colors rather than plain white. White isn't always the ideal color for a room and it isn't necessary to stick to a plain white where you'd prefer a color. Choose cool colors, especially from the pastel shade range. The important thing is to ensure that the color chosen is lighter than the wall colors.[3] 3 Use vertical patterns to good effect.

How to Hang Art with Pop Tabs

How to Hang Art with Pop Tabs Having a hard time figuring out how to get that artwork or framed poster on the wall? No hook on the back of the painting? Don’t despair, you can create a makeshift art hanger using a pop tab in less than five minutes. Steps 1 Remove the pop tabs from the tops of the soda or beer cans. Carefully remove the tab to avoid damaging it. Twist and turn the tab so it releases itself from the can. This may require a little patience. Take care when removing the tab, as the metal can cut your fingers. Consider wearing work gloves when performing this task, especially if you're removing tabs from multiple cans. 2 Choose a central spot on the back of the painting or artwork to place the screw. Use a measuring tape to determine where the center is and how far up you should place the screw. 3 Use a pencil to mark the perfect spot for the screw. A simple large pencil dot will work.

How to Crochet a Baby Hat

How to Crochet a Baby Hat Three Methods:Single Crochet BeanieDouble Crochet BeanieBaby Bonnet Baby hats can be a moderately challenging project for beginning crocheters, but with a little practice, you can craft a variety of designs using only a few basic stitches. Method 1 of 3: Single Crochet Beanie[1] 1 Tie the yarn onto the crochet hook. Create a slip knot on the hooked end of your crochet hook using one end of the yarn. Note that the unattached end of the yarn will be left alone for the remainder of the pattern and is referred to as the "tail end." The end still attached to the skein is the "working end," and you will be drawing yarn from that end as you make the hat. 2 Chain two. Make two chain stitches from the loop on your hook. 3 Form a ring. Work six single crochets into the second chain from the hook. This should form your first round. Note that the second chain from the hook is also the first chain you created. 4 Single crochet into each stitch. To complete the second round, make two single crochets into each stitch of the previous round. When done, this round should have a total of 12 single crochets. Mark the last stitch of the round with a plastic stitch marker. If you do not have one, use a safety pin or paperclip. 5 Single crochet the third round. Work one single crochet into the first stitch of the previous round. Work two single crochets into the stitch that follows. Repeat this pattern to complete the remainder of the round, working one single crochet into each odd numbered stitch and two single crochets into each even numbered stitch. When done, this round should have 18 stitches. Move the pin marker to the last stitch of this round. 6 Increase the size of the next round. Work one single crochet into the first stitch of the previous round. Work another one single crochet into the second stitch. For the third stitch, work two single crochets. Repeat this pattern, making one single crochet, another one single crochet, and two single crochets around the rest of the round. When done, you should have 24 single crochets in this round. Move the stitch marker to the last stitch in this round before continuing. 7 Work additional single crochets for the fifth round. Make one single crochet in each of the first three stitches of the previous round. Afterward, make two single crochets into the fourth stitch of the previous round. Repeat this pattern until you reach the end of your round. You should make a total of 30 single crochets for this round. Mark the end of round five with your stitch marker. 8

Shapoor Zadran, cult hero

Shapoor Zadran, cult hero   The sight of long-haired Shapoor Zadran promises to be the one image a fan will remember this World Cup by   There is no greater liar than the memory of the sports fan. That's why, as has been the case at probably all of the last four World Cups, this one has added healthily to the literary genre of cricket nostalgia. In the realm of nostalgia, facts blur. Falling within the 28-40-year-old cricket fan demographic as I do, I place more stock than I should in cult heroes of the 1992 World Cup. My mental image - and that apparently shared with literally millions of others - is of offspinning opener Dipak Patel celebrating wickets, and the pinch-hitting Mark Greatbatch cutting a glorious six at Eden Park. In my memory, he gave every single delivery that treatment.   Never mind that Patel took only eight wickets in nine games, placing him behind 19 other bowlers (poor, neglected Anderson Cummins…), nor that he didn't always open the bowling. It doesn't matter that Greatbatch's apparently whiplash-inducing 313 runs came at what would now be considered a middling strike rate of 87.92; these men still feel deserving of our adulation. Part of this can be attributed to youth, of course. My most depressing moment this week came upon the realisation that 1992-issue Mark Greatbatch - who looked like mid-'80s Gene Hackman back then - was during that tournament actually three years younger than I am now myself. There comes a point when sportspeople stop looking like the grizzled father of one of your friends. Greatbatch sat in the sweet spot. What I'm failing to get to here is that the older you get, the harder it is for cult heroes to really imprint themselves on your imagination. You miss out on some of the magic. Or so I thought until I watched Afghanistan pacemanShapoor Zadran marking out his ludicrous run-up at Manuka Oval last week. This tournament is only two weeks old, but Shapoor is my man and that's not going to change. Chris Gayle made 215 against Zimbabwe, Tim Southee took 7 for 33 to embarrass England, but still I haven't wavered and I won't. Are there kids out there thinking the same thing about Shapoor? Are grown adults as giddy as me about the sight of him charging in like the love child of Shoaib Akhtar and Brendon Julian? I hope so, but more on him in a minute. The story of this World Cup so far is the Associate nations. I hope that remains the case, even when we lose our minds during the final series in which only Ireland of the Associates is a serious chance to compete. The momentum

Friendships are among the most complex but meaning

    Friendships are among the most complex but meaningful relationships in our lives. These unique bonds often run deeper than family ties, and sometimes last longer than our relationships with spouses or lovers. Yet there are few agreed-upon ground rules or roadmaps…   Because of the cultural and social taboos associated with failed friendships, it’s not unusual to feel embarrassed and/or uncomfortable when a friendship ends or goes awry. For a variety of reasons, it may be difficult to talk about what happened, both to other people around you or with the person who once was your friend. Yet, most of us yearn to better understand what happened so we can repair a fractured friendship or avoid the same landmines in the future. Dramatic changes in the ways women live, work and communicate have made navigating the terrain of female friendships even more daunting. This website aims to help readers navigate the awkward misunderstandings and disappointments—as well as the long silences and distance—that often crops up among friends. It organizes the expert advice that The Friendship Doctor has dispensed over the years along with the crowd-sourced wisdom of thousands of readers from every walk of life.

How to Bedazzle Your Sneakers

How to Bedazzle Your Sneakers Three Methods:Bedazzling with GlitterBedazzling with Crystals and RhinestonesTrying Other Creative Ideas Transform a pedestrian pair of white sneakers into something unique and special using some simple craft materials like Mod Podge, glitter and crystals. This craft will not only produce fashionable shoes, it's also a great activity for parties and sleepovers!.Start with Step 1 below to begin bedazzling your sneakers! Method 1 of 3: Bedazzling with Glitter 1 Gather your supplies. To make these glitter sneakers, you will need a pair of sneakers, some fine glitter (in the color or colors of your choice), a pot of glitter paint, a paintbrush, a roll of painters tape and a pot of Modge Podge. 2 Prepare your sneakers. Make sure your sneakers are completely clean, or else use a brand new pair of sneakers for this project. If you're using an old pair of fabric or canvas, consider putting them in the washing machine. If they are not machine washable, use a damp cloth to remove as much dirt as possible. Remove the laces from the sneakers, then take the painters tape and use to it to cover up any areas of the shoe you don't want to bedazzle -- such as the rubber sole and the tongue. 3 Mix the glitter paint and loose glitter. Pour a large drop of glitter paint onto a paper plate, then sprinkle the loose glitter on top. Mix with a paintbrush or lollipop stick until you achieve a slightly grainy consistency -- but don't allow the paint to become too chunky or dry. If necessary, add more of the glitter or paint until you achieve the right consistency. 4 Begin painting the shoes. Take a paintbrush and dip it in the glittery paint. Place your free hand inside the shoe to hold it up, then start painting! Try to apply a thin, even layer of the paint over the entire shoe. If you pile it on too thickly, the paint may take a very long time to dry. Once you have finished painting the first shoe, do the same with the second. Remember that you can always paint an extra layer of glitter paint once the original layer has dried. It's better to apply several thin layers than a single thick coat.

How to Choose a Craft Project

How to Choose a Craft Project If you craft, you almost certainly have unfinished projects sitting on the shelf. Did you ever stop to think about why or where those came from? Would you like to choose projects you're more likely to finish and use? Here are some factors to consider when choosing your next craft project. Steps 1 Have a purpose in mind. Your purpose might be to make a gift for someone, to have something to exchange with another crafter, to use up certain materials you have on hand, to practice or demonstrate a new technique, to produce a useful or decorative object, or to encapsulate memories or sentiments. Knowing your purpose will guide your design decisions. For example, it will help you to create an item that is sufficiently durable to withstand its later use. A bag that will be used to carry objects will need sturdier materials and construction than a wall hanging. 2 Have an audience in mind. Will you use or display the resulting craft yourself, give it to someone you know, or perhaps sell or trade the craft? Thinking in terms of a purpose and an audience or recipient at the beginning will help you to choose a particular craft and design. It will also focus the process itself and make it more likely that you will persist and complete the project. 3 Experiment and invent. Give yourself the time and space to doodle or tinker without purpose or direction. This is the opposite of the previous two steps, but crafting is a creative endeavor. At least every now and then, don't be deliberate, at all; just play. You can use scraps and leftovers if you'd like to conserve resources.

Make a Ceiling Seem Lower

Make a Ceiling Seem Lower Not everyone is enamored of high ceilings. There are some drawbacks to height when the room feels cold, unfriendly and lacking in coziness. To bring down some of the height and make the room more appealing, there are several ways to trick the vision into seeing the ceiling as lower than it really is. Steps 1 Paint the ceiling a dark color. Look for a dark, warm color, such as deep crimson, dark green, oranges, browns, reds etc.[1] The color should be darker than the color used for the walls. Paint Café points out that warm tones make a room seem friendlier and dark tones make it seem more intimate.[2] 2 Attach a picture rail or wooden wall edging. Bring the ceiling paint down to meet with the top of the picture rail or edging.[3] It is recommended that you bring the ceiling painting down at least a foot.[4] 3

How to Make a Bud Vase from a PVC Pipe by Jan Baz

How to Make a Bud Vase from a PVC Pipe Three Methods:PreparationAdding the PhotosAssembling the Vase Looking for the perfect gift for a loved one that not only shows your creativity, but also is functional and serves as a memento? By making a lovely bud vase from a PVC pipe that carries precious photos, this nifty gadget can be used for a variety of occasions from Mother’s Day to Valentine’s. Method 1 of 3: Preparation 1 Cut the PVC pipe(s) to size. Depending on the look you want to achieve, you can create two or three bud vases to sit inside the wooden block or you can have a single vase. Determine the size (height) before you cut. Consider having the hardware store employee cut the PVC pipe to size (if possible). Otherwise, you will need to cut it yourself using a hand saw. 2 Select enough photos to cover the PVC pipes you’ve chosen. Print the photos onto laser photo paper. You may want to make several copies, or generate them in several sizes in order to obtain the right fit. 3 Add the caps to the PVC pipes using PVC glue. Set side the pipes with glued caps to dry fully. Method 2 of 3: Adding the Photos 1 Cut and size the printed photos to fit the pipes. It's recommended that you test the positioning of the photos first by placing a small piece of tape on the photos and sticking them to the pipes. Perfect the arrangement before adding the photos permanently. 2 Dip the laser printed photos in water. The images should not be saturated; dip just enough to wet them.

Take a clean paintbrush and start applying it to the sneakers. The Modge Modge will seal the glitter (making sure it doesn't fall off) and add shine to the sneakers. Don't worry if it looks white at first, it will turn clear once it dries. Leave the shoes to dry overnight, then reinsert the laces and enjoy your new glitter shoes! 6

Create a Bread in a Bottle Gift

Create a Bread in a Bottle Gift Three Parts:Choosing the Elements of the GiftFilling the BottlePackaging the Gift Looking for a unique housewarming or hostess gift with a personal touch? Instead of the old, staid picture frame or bottle of wine, present a gift that provides both function and flair such as “quick bread in a bottle.” All you will need a large empty bottle (such as an old fashioned milk bottle) and the “fixings” for quick bread. Part 1 of 3: Choosing the Elements of the Gift 1 Find the right bottle. Old fashioned milk bottles can be a lovely way to present this gift, if you can find some. Check online or look in a local antique store. If not, you can also use large canning jars or even another type of bottle (as long as it had a lid) to house your creation. 2 Determine what kind of bread you’d like to include. It's best to provide the ingredients for a quick bread only as they're easier to make. If you want to provide a more detailed recipe, you'll need to include more items, such as packages of dry yeast and specific instructions. Find a recipe that most people will like and can make. Something overly complicated may be a turn off (unless the gift recipient is a genuinely good baker). 3 Choose ingredients that have a long shelf life and will remain preserved for some time. Take into account the weather when packaging your bread. In warmer climates, items like chocolate pieces may melt and ruin the presentation (not to mention the prospect of baking the bread). 4 Consider using supporting supplies or items such as labels, recipe cards and ribbon. You’ll want to package and present the gift in an attractive manner so keep in mind everything you might need (including glue or the

How to Hard Boil an Egg by Jan Baz

How to Hard Boil an Egg Here's a fool-proof, reliable way to hard boil eggs. At a Glance: Hard-Boiling Eggs Discard eggs that float in salt water. Cover eggs with cold water, 1 inch / 3 cm above the eggs. Add a pinch of salt. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Turn off heat and wait 10–15 minutes. Run under cold water and refrigerate. Steps - Watch a 10 second video 1 Sort the eggs. Place them in a bowl of salt water—if the egg sinks to the bottom it means it is fresh; if it floats at the top, get rid of it. Place the fresh eggs gently in an empty pot. Be sure to do so one by one to avoid breaking the egg. Similarly, do not place more than four layers of eggs in the pot.[1] To prevent cracking of the eggs, place a folded cheesecloth on the bottom of a pot (on a table, not a hot stove.) If you accidentally crack an egg, add salt and/or vinegar to the water. This may help the proteins in the egg white coagulate faster, thus plugging the cracks in the shell.

How to Care for a New Tattoo by Jan Baz

How to Care for a New Tattoo Two Methods:Initial Cleaning and CareWhat to Avoid Choosing a reputable tattoo artist is only the first step towards having a tattoo you can be truly proud of. How you care for your tattoo afterwards is equally, if not more, important. Even the best tattoo work can be ruined by poor aftercare. Guidelines vary from artist to artist, but here's an overview of what you need to do to keep your tattoo clean, bold and clear. Method 1 of 2: Initial Cleaning and Care 1 Listen to your tattoo artist. If you've done your homework and chosen a good tattoo artist, he or she will provide detailed instructions on how to care for your new tattoo, which you should follow carefully. Every tattoo artist will have a slightly different opinion on the best way to care for a new tattoo, but don't worry, most reputable artists have had years of experience in caring for new tattoos, so their methods have been tried and tested.[1] Think of your tattoo as having a warranty; if you don't follow the artist's instructions, you might void the warranty and he or she won't give you free touch-ups. Remember: tattoo artists want your tattoo to heal perfectly and look good just as much as you do, so they shouldn't give you any poor advice. The following instructions may vary slightly from what your tattoo artist tell you, but should serve as a good guideline. 2 Leave the bandage on for 2 to 4 hours. Once the tattoo is complete, your tattoo artist will clean the area, apply an anti-bacterial ointment and cover the tattoo with a bandage or some dressing. Once you have left the tattoo parlor, try to resist the temptation to open the bandage to take a peak or show off your new tattoo to your friends. The bandage is there to protect your tattoo from airborne bacteria, which can penetrate through your broken skin. The bandage should be left on for a minimum of two hours before you remove it. Thick, absorbent, non-stick ABD wound dressings are the most common type of bandage used by tattoo artists. These are very effective as they allow the tattoo to breathe, while also being thick enough to protect the skin from bacteria and bumps. They are also extremely absorbent..[2] There are many tattoo artists out there who are firm believers in wrapping new tattoos in plastic wrap, while there are many more who believe that this is the worst possible thing you could do for your tattoo. Proponents of plastic wrap believe that it is the best way to wrap a new tattoo as it is easy to apply and remove without sticking to the skin. It also forms an effective shield which blocks any bacteria from getting near the tattoo. Those who oppose plastic wrap do so on the grounds that it prevents oxygen from getting to the tattoo, and oxygen is essential for healing. It also seals in moisture and raises the temperature of the skin, creating a perfect breeding ground for bacteria.[1] Whichever type of covering your tattoo artist uses, be sure to follow his/her advice carefully. Both types of bandages have been used successfully before. Just remember that plastic wrap will need to be changed and the tattoo cleaned much more frequently than with other bandaging, to prevent the build-up of bacteria. 3 Carefully remove the bandage. The jury is still out on how long a bandage should be left on before it is removed. Most artists agree that you should keep your tattoo covered for a minimum of two hours before removing, but the recommended maximum amount of time varies between 4 and 6 hours. Tattoos covered in plastic wrap are the exception, plastic wrap should never be left on a new tattoo for longer than two hours.[3] In reality, the amount of time will vary according to the size and placement of the tattoo, along with the level of tattoo seepage and the type of bandage used. In most cases, it is best to follow the advice of your tattoo artist, but you should also use your own judgement and common sense. To remove the bandage, soak it with warm water to prevent it from sticking to your skin. It should come off easily once wet. Discard the used bandage.

How to Dodge a Punch by Jan Baz

How to Dodge a Punch Four Parts:Preparing to DodgeDodging a Punch by Moving BackDodging a Punch to the Face by Moving InRolling with a Punch to the Body Skill in dodging punches mainly comes down to practice, not innate reflexes. Reading this guide once won't make you a master fighter, but it will teach you the correct form to use while practicing. Try to turn these motions into second nature, and remember the vital tips for minimizing injury. Part 1 of 4: Preparing to Dodge 1 Hold your fists up. Hold your clenched fists in front of your face to protect it. Keep them around cheek level to protect as much of your face as possible. Clench your fists with the thumb on the outside, not the inside. 2 Keep your elbows at your side. Your arms and shoulders should be relaxed for easy movement, with your elbows kept down to protect your torso. 3 Tuck your chin down. Keeping your chin down makes your face a smaller target and protects your neck. Don't tuck it so far down you have trouble watching your opponent. 4 Adopt a defensive stance. Turn slightly sideways with one leg (usually the right leg for right-handed people) further back than the other so your torso isn't facing the opponent.[1] Your legs should be at roughly shoulder width or a little wider. Keep your knees bent so you can stay balanced and mobile. Don't turn too far sideways; if you are standing at right angles to your opponent you can be knocked to the side. 5 Stay alert but don't stare in one place. Your eyes detect movement faster from the side of your vision than from the front, so an unfixed gaze will serve you better than a close stare at your opponent's hands.[2] Be aware of your opponent's shoulders, eyes, and foot movement as well as their hands. If a particular opponent always steps forward before punching, you can use that information to react more quickly. The more practice you have, the faster your movements will be. Part 2 of 4: Dodging a Punch by Moving Back 1 Combine these steps into one movement. If you successfully dodge with this method, you will end up on the outside of your opponent's punch,

Unexpected Side Effects Of Sugar

Unexpected Side Effects Of Sugar Are you a sugar addict? Do sweets and other sweet tasting foods make you go crazy? Then it’s high time you did something about it, because your addiction is definitely not something healthy. Sugar cravings are something everyone have experienced at one point in their lives, some more than the others. We all know it’s bad for us. Now, we should also now just how bad sugar can get if we consume too much of it. This post talks about the harmful effects of sugar. Read on to know them! 1. Sugar Makes Us Fat: Let us begin with the obvious. Although few unfortunate souls are genetically predisposed to obesity, there is no reason we should let sugar ruin our heath. This sweetener is truly a bitter pill to those unable to stay away from sugary foods for too long. Researchers have, several times, established a direct association between sugar consumption and fat development (1). Every time you indulge in a sweet pleasure, the extra sugar seems to be converted into the next fat reserve in the body. People of all age groups fall prey to this epidemic, as you don’t need a gene to become obese if you have bad food habits. 2. Sugar Is Addictive: Yes! Very like alcohol, no less. Sugar can make the mind feel less satiated, and you simply want more and more of the same. For many people, sugar is literally an addiction as it can release the happy hormone called dopamine in the brain. Consequently, advising someone with a sugar addiction to cut back on it would backfire, the same way it would for an alcoholic. There would surely be withdrawal symptoms paired with intense sugar cravings. 3. Sugar Dulls Your Brain: Mental health is something you must guard carefully. And believe it or not, sugar practically

Accessorize a Living Room

Accessorize a Living Room Accessories are the small touches, accents and pieces of furniture that bring a room together and set it apart from the ordinary. Accessorizing your living room can help to add color, interest, detail and comfort to the space, making it both user friendly and visually complete. Steps 1 Start by creating a focal point in the room. A focal point can be artwork, a window, a fireplace or a television; arrange all the furniture to face it. 2 Soften the floors with throw rugs of different colors, patterns and textures.Create layers of rugs on top of wall-to-wall carpeting or scatter them across bare floors; either way will help add color and pattern to the room. 3 Add throw pillows on the couches and chairs that pick up accent colors in the room. The pillows can be prints or solid colors. If using prints, make sure they pick up colors from drapes, rugs or wall art to tie them in. 4 Add window treatments in a solid color that picks up one of the colors in the rugs, pillows or art work to tie everything together. 5 Add bookcases to the room as a way to display reading materials as well as knickknacks, pottery, framed pictures and other items of interest. Position the bookcases below wall art or a wall-mounted television, or place them behind chairs.

Although milk itself is an extremely healthy food, the subtle ways that it affects the body can sometimes cause more harm than good. Let’s look at some expert views on the Pros and Cons of Cow milk. 1. Nutrition: In terms of nutritional benefits, there are many conflicting opinions on whether cow milk is the best thing for you. Long mooted as the complete nutritional food, leading doctors of the past and present have studied and detailed their findings on cow milk. Dr. William Sears, leading pediatrician and Assistant Clinical Professor at the University of Irvine, said in a study in 2006: “Milk is one of the most nutritious foods. It contains most basic nutrients growing children need in fats, proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals (except iron). Although, you can derive most of these nutrients from seafood, legumes, and other vegetables, milk is a one stop shop for most of these nutrients. Children eat more amounts of dairy products more consistently than other foods. Although, whole milk might not be the best calcium source, it is the most practical.” Dr. Benjamin Spock, Author of “The Common Sense Book of Baby and Child Care”, one of the most comprehensive books ever written on the subject, concluded in 1998: “There was a time when milk was in vogue and considered to be one of the most nutritious foods. However, we need to rethink this as dairy products lead to many health problems. Dairy products inhibit iron absorption in children and can lead to faint blood loss from your digestive tract. Moreover, milk has no iron of its own, and this leads to iron deficiency.”

How to Drive in Icy Conditions

  How to Drive in Icy Conditions Three Methods:Using Techniques to Stay on the RoadWinterizing Your CarMaking Smart Driving Decisions Knowing how to drive in icy conditions is an extremely important skill, especially if you live in a colder climate with harsh winters. Icy conditions can occur suddenly and without warning, so you have to be prepared every time you get in the car once the temperature drops. Bridges are especially dangerous in these circumstances because they ice first due to the absence of warm ground below them. See Step 1 to learn how to be safe in icy driving conditions. Method 1 of 3: Using Techniques to Stay on the Road 1 Pump your brakes. A mistake many people make when they feel the tires start to slip on the ice is slamming on the brakes. This locks the breaks and causes the tires to slip even more. It often results in a loss of control over the vehicle. Instead of slamming your brakes, pump them. Use your foot to gently tap the brake pedal when you want to slow down. The car will remain under your control as it slowly loses speed. But there is the danger if the road is too icy that slowing down will make the car lose control and start skidding. This effect is worse when you are at high speed. Skip if the road is too icy. Give yourself plenty of time to brake, too. Start breaking long before you actually need to stop, just in case the car skids. If you don't quite understand how or why you need to pump the brakes, try practicing the technique in a safe but icy spot, like a completely empty parking lot with plenty of room. Drive on the ice a little, then abruptly brake. See how the car skids? Now try it again, this time pumping. The difference in control should be clear. 2 Accelerate with ease. Your tires need time to connect with the road and get a grip. If you accelerate too quickly, your wheels will spin and you may lose control of your vehicle. Accelerate very slowly and gently, testing to see whether your tires have good traction. If you don't feel them gripping, slow down and start the process again. If you find yourself in a situation in which your tires can't get a grip, sprinkle the area in front of them with sand or gravel. You may also need to dig out some of the snow around them to give them room to move. Accelerating slowly is another technique that can be practiced in an icy, empty parking lot. Try starting the car on a patch of ice and going hard on the gas. The tires will probably start to spin. Now try again, this time slowly pushing the gas to let the tires get a trip. 3 Learn how to steer out of a skid. First take your foot off of the accelerator so your car will slow down and regain traction. Gently steer your car in the direction you want it to go. If you overcompensate for the skid and begin sliding the other way, steer back in the direction you want to go. It may take a few subtle movements to straighten your vehicle out.[1] When you're moving in the right direction, you can gently pump your breaks or accelerate to regain control. Remain calm if you skid. Resist the urge to overcompensate by swinging your wheel too hard in the other direction. Gentle, calm steering will correct your car's direction and set you back on track. Practice losing and regaining control of your car in safe lot. Approach an icy patch and accelerate into it so that your car begins to skid. Gently steer your way out of the skid by guiding your car in the direction you want it to go. Method 2 of 3: Winterizing Your Car 1 Get a basic maintenance check up. Toward the end

How to Eat Quail Eggs by Jan Baz

How to Eat Quail Eggs Three Methods:Boiling Quail EggsPickling Quail EggsFried Quail Eggs Quail eggs are gaining a following, as more and more people begin to enjoy the pretty shells and high mineral and protein content. You can purchase quail eggs at farmers’ markets, Asian markets and some specialty markets. They can be cooked and eaten much like chicken eggs, or used as a garnish for fancier dishes. The cooking times should be adjusted since the average quail egg is just 9 grams, and the average chicken egg weighs approximately 50 grams. Method 1 of 3: Boiling Quail Eggs 1 Heat a small saucepan two-thirds full of water on the stove. Bring it to a boil. 2 Place three or four quail eggs inside a large slotted spoon or pasta-serving spoon. Lower them into the water. 3 Boil the eggs until they reach the desired doneness. Quail eggs are much smaller than chicken eggs, so they require shorter boiling times. The following are the times for different consistencies of boiled eggs: Boil for two minutes if you want soft boiled eggs with the yolk still runny. Boil for two and a half minutes for a soft-boiled egg. Boil for three minutes for a medium boiled egg. Boil for four minutes for a hard-boiled egg. The yolk will be completely set. 4 Remove your eggs with a slotted spoon. 5 Make an ice bath in a bowl with some water and ice cubes. Set the eggs in the water for five minutes. 6 Peel your eggs very carefully. Serve immediately. These eggs can be eaten by themselves, used in recipes or served as a garnish. Method 2 of 3: Pickling Quail Eggs 1 Purchase a pack of at least 24 quail eggs, so that you can do an entire batch. 2 Fill a medium saucepan with cold water. Add the eggs to the saucepan. The water must

Become a Night Owl

Become a Night Owl Three Parts:Transitioning to the Night Owl LifestyleReaping the Advantages of the Night Owl LifestyleStaying Healthy Winston Churchill. Voltaire. Bob Dylan. Charles Bukowski. What do these men have in common other than being political, creative, or philosophical geniuses? They are known for being night owls. Studies show that night owls tend to have a higher IQ than early birds, and this may be because there’s a link between creative output and the dark hours of the night.[1] However, if you want to join this elite group of people, you have to know that night owls are also more prone to depression than morning birds, and you should make sure to stay healthy as you transition to this exciting time of your life.[2] Part 1 of 3: Transitioning to the Night Owl Lifestyle 1 Go to bed a little later and wake up a little later every night. The best way to transition into the life of a night owl is to take it day by day. Unless you’re in a rush, you should try going to bed and waking up 15-30 minutes later each day until you’ve reached your ideal bedtime. Night owls typically go to bed anywhere between midnight and five in the morning, though you can decide what the term “night owl” means to you. The most important thing is that you find a schedule that works for you and that you stick to it once you’ve transitioned to your ideal sleeping and waking time. In fact, it’s just as important to go to bed and to wake up around the same time as it is to get the 7-8 hours of sleep that most people need to get. Getting 8 hours of sleep each night won’t make you feel rested if you have an erratic sleep schedule. Once you’ve found your routine, your mind will become accustomed to your new energy cycle and will be able to work more efficiently. 2 If you can’t wake up later, plan for naps. If you have to wake up at a certain time every morning but are determined to go to bed later, then you should make sure to make up for that sleep during the day as much as you can. Though taking long naps lasting over thirty minutes can actually make you more tired, if you just take one or two 10-15 minute power naps throughout the day, whether it’s on your lunch break or in the late afternoon, then you may be able to get the rest you need. People also say that 10 minutes of intense focused meditation can be equal to an hour of sleep. If you want to be a night owl but you still have to get up early in the morning, then you may want to look into meditation in the mornings. All you have to do is close your eyes, keep your body still, and focus on your breathing, letting all distractions fade away. 3 Make sure to give yourself some down time so you don’t have trouble falling asleep. Transitioning to the night owl lifestyle will, of course, lead you to go to bed later, but you should still plan to have a time for yourself to wind down so that you actually do make it to sleep. You should turn off all visual stimuli, which includes your phone, your computer, or your TV, at least an hour before bed so your mind begins to go into “sleep mode.” Relax with some light reading, camomile tea, and soft music before bedtime and you’ll be in dreamland in no time. If you watch hours of YouTube videos and then attempt to go straight to bed, your mind will still be racing. 4 Let your friends or family members know about your plans. It’s important to let the people you live with, as well as your friends, know about your new lifestyle change. This will keep your parents or roommates from making too much noise in the morning or expecting you to have late morning brunch plans with them, and will lead them to respect your lifestyle. If you live alone, letting the friends you see frequently know about your decision can be helpful because they won’t call you or come knocking on your door early, and they won’t send you emails at seven in the morning expecting a response any time soon. Your friends or family members may also be open to hanging out with you later in the evenings, since they know you’ll be staying up late. 5 Find work that supports your new lifestyle. If you’re really committed to being a night owl, then you should find a way to work or study that syncs up with your way of life. You can work for an international company in a completely different timezone, so you can communicate with your coworkers and get business done in the middle of the night. You can also be a writer, blogger, or have a contract position where it doesn’t matter when you work, as long as you get the job done. If you’re in school, you can set up a study schedule that allows you to be productive at night, and to get up in time for your exams. If you’re in a creative field, such as painting, photography, design, or acting, then you may be able to create, practice, rehearse, develop photos, or get much of your creative work done in the nighttime. In fact, it may even be easier for you to do so because you’ll have fewer interruptions! Part 2 of 3: Reaping the Advantages of the Night Owl Lifestyle

Arrange Living Room Furniture

Arrange Living Room Furniture Four Methods:Creating Appealing ArrangementsMaking a Small Room Feel SpaciousMaking a Large Room Feel CozyTesting Arrangements without Buying or Moving Furniture Whether you are redecorating your living room or designing your first space, arranging your furniture is an important consideration. Follow these instructions to create the atmosphere you desire regardless of the space you have available. The information below should help you select furniture as well, by understanding how various pieces alter a room. Method 1 of 4: Creating Appealing Arrangements 1 Empty the room. Remove all your furniture using a furniture dolly or assistants. This will give you a better idea of the room's shape without the existing arrangement influencing your judgement. If you don't have enough storage space, remove as much as you can, then place the remaining items in unobtrusive corners while you plan. 2 For most living rooms, select a few large elements and a few small elements.Unless you consider your living room extra small, extra large, or an unusual shape, follow these guidelines. A few large pieces of furniture should make up most of the furniture by volume. End tables, ottomans, and similar small items should complement these and provide footrests and drink stands, not obstruct passage through the room or turn a pleasing arrangement into a busy mess. For instance, a couch, an armchair, and bookcase can outline the usable space and set the color scheme. Two end tables and a small coffee table then serve useful functions and provide smaller objects for more visual interest without taking attention away from the larger pieces. See the Small Room and Large Room sections for advice on arranging unusually sized spaces. This can also apply if your living room is an odd shape, especially with angled walls that make the space appear too crowded or too spread apart. 3 Select a center of attention. Every room benefits from a center of attention, or focal point, which can be any object or area that attracts the eye and gives you something to orient your other furniture around.[1] Without choosing something to draw attention, the overall design can look messy and unplanned, and there may be awkward spaces that make guests uncomfortable. The most common focal points are up against one wall, such as a television, fireplace, or set of large windows. Place seating arrangement along the other three sides of the room, at right angles or angled slightly toward the focal point. If you don't have a focal point, or if you want to encourage more conversation, create a symmetrical arrangement of furniture, with seating on four sides. It is harder to accomplish an appealing design this way, however; consider decorating a bookcase or other tall piece of furniture instead to create visual harmony without distracting guests. 4 Leave space between the walls and furniture. If all your sofas are pushed back against a wall, the room can seem cold and unwelcoming. Pull the furniture inward on at least two or three sides to create a more intimate area. Follow the guidelines for distance below, but feel free to adjust these if you prefer smaller or larger spaces.[2] Allow 3 ft (1m) wide spaces where people will be walking. If you have energetic kids or household members who require extra space, increase this to 4 ft (1.2m). If you don't have the space to create walkways on three or four sides of the room, pull the furniture inward just enough place a lamp behind it, either standalone or standing on a narrow table. The light creates the suggestion of additional space. 5 Place your furniture for convenient use. Some of this comes down to personal preference, and you can always readjust to match your household's habits. Still, these simple design "rules" are a good place to start: Coffee tables are typically placed 14–18 inches (35–45 cm) from seating. Shorten this distance if your household members have short arms, and lengthen this distance if they have long legs. If you have both types of people in your household, place the seating closer on two opposite ends and further on the third, or vice versa. Designers place side chairs 48–100 inches (120–250 cm) from the sofa as a default. Just make sure there's enough space to walk between them if you don't have sufficient room. Television placement varies greatly with size of room, eyesight of viewers, and personal preference. As a rough guide, begin by placing the seating facing the television three times further from the TV as the height of the screen. For instance, a 15-inch (40 cm) tall screen should be positioned 45 inches (120 cm) from the sofa and then adjusted to suit taste. 6 Use symmetry to create restful designs. Symmetrical arrangements feel orderly and calm, and are great for resting the mind or low key activities. To create a room with bilateral symmetry, imagine drawing a line across the exact center of the floor; the furnishings on one side should be the mirror image of the furnishings on the other. The most common symmetrical arrangement: a focal point in the center of one wall, a couch directly facing it on the other side, and two chairs or smaller couches on either side of the couch, facing inward. A coffee table and/or end tables complete the space. You don't need identical furnishings to pull this off. For instance, you can balance an L-shaped couch by placing a low end table on the opposite side of the "L" arm. The overall shape is more important than the exactly matching elements.

Make Handprint Art

Make Handprint Art Three Methods:Imagine Your ProjectPrepare for the ProjectCreate the Design For an art project keepsake, create handprint art that will capture your child’s small handprint for a moment in time. Even babies can participate in this project as long as there is a willing adult ready to guide his or her precious hand to paper (and clean up the mess). Method 1 of 3: Imagine Your Project 1 Determine what you hope to accomplish with this project. Do you want to create a single piece of artwork to give to a grandparent or relative or are you planning to track your child’s hand size through time using artful designs? If tracking the changes in hand size, purchase a large art folder to keep the paintings in. Always date the back of each piece of artwork for reference. (It's a good idea to keep digital copies too, in case of damage or loss of the original handprint artwork.) Another method to keep a series that tracks your child’s development, is to create small cards with your child’s hand and mount them to a long piece of tag board. 2 Choose your designs. How will you create art from your child’s handprint? Will you turn his or her chubby print into swimming fish or animals or perhaps recreate the alphabet? Have a design game plan ahead of time and even sketch out how it will look. You may want to design something more permanent, possibly using clay or even plaster. Take your child’s age, time commitment and supplies into consideration before deciding which type of art project you will attempt. 3 Decide if your child is ready to participate. Although even a baby can make handprint art, be sure your child is in the right frame of mind and whether the project will be more of a difficult task rather than an enjoyable experience.

NeverSeconds

  NeverSeconds One primary school pupil's daily dose of school dinners.   10 million! Wow, 10 million hits! That's brilliant because that's 10 million thinking about kids and food. I am still working away quietly trying to raise money for Mary's Meals. Together we've raised £131,666.79 so far and I know the total is going to jump because last week I got told that Lidl are donating £7500 as part of the Young Fundraiser award and there's a big lump from my book! Keep an eye on the total to see how much it jumps! I have been asked to talk at lots of conferences. I find it hard. I always ask my dad to help. Last year I went to Copenhagen to talk at the MAD food conference. It was an amazing experience. It is organised by Renee from Noma and his friends. I learnt loads from the other speakers. Roy Choi spoke about feeding communities in America and I ate food cooked by ladies from a souk in Lebanon cooked by ladies with different religions. When it was my turn to speak every one cheered and my nerves got me.  Martha Payne: "Changing the World, One School Dinner at a Time" from MAD on Vimeo. I was very glad my dad was there to help. Sorry Renee! My whole family has also signed up to join the Scottish Food Family!  It's brilliant. It's all about better food lessons in school, improving school meals and being really proud of Scottish food! There's also going to be a Scottish food day. I love growing food. I've got my very own sheep now and she is in lamb! We've loads to be proud of in Scotland. Scottish food isn't just haggis even if it is one of my favourites! You should make a haggis lasagne....it's awesome! It's great getting 10 million hits. Shows how important food for children is both in Scotland and around the world.     Surprised! October is the month for surprises I think! Last year I was in Malawi at Lirangwe (video) visiting the kitchen we are all supporting with Mary's Meals. This year I was in London helping Mary's Meals when this happened... You can read all about it in the Mirror newspaper. Jamie is brilliant and I am so glad it was him that surprised me. It was all filmed as well so you will see how surprised I was. ITV came to film at Mary's Meals and at my house but I thought it was for a documentary and I didn't know anything about the Pride of Britain awards. I have been quietly busy helping Mary's Meals and school dinners all year. There's lots going on. Mary's Meals is feeding more and more children a free school meal every day. I can't wait until we can say we're helping 1 million children a day! In England children will get a free school meal starting next September for their first three years at school. What a difference that will make. I am waiting to hear what will happen in Scotland. I hope it will be just as good and maybe better than England. There is so much you can do in a school with a great school dinner.  I am looking forward to London at the weekend. I think it will be good for Mary's Meals and school dinners. My whole family

Make a Garland With Scrap Fabrics

Make a Garland With Scrap Fabrics Two Parts:Preparing the Scrap FabricMaking the Garland Do you need to recycle your left over bits of fabric? Is your fabric stash outgrowing its allotted storage space? This is an opportunity to up-cycle those fabric left overs and decorate for holidays at the same time! Part 1 of 2: Preparing the Scrap Fabric 1 Sort through your fabric stash. Coordinate the scraps by their color. Determine how much yardage you have. You will be able to make approximately 30 inches (76cm) of garland per yard (91cm) of fabric you have on hand. Choose 2 to 4 coordinating fabrics to use for your garland. 2 Launder the fabrics. If needed, press them smooth. 3 Cut the fabric into strips. The strips should measure five inches long by one inch wide (12.5cm x 2.5cm). You can cut them longer if you wish, but you will need to cut them all the same length for best results. A rotary cutter and mat make this part of the project a breeze. You will need approximately 24 strips per linear feet of finished garland.

Make Perches for a Hummingbird Feeder

Make Perches for a Hummingbird Feeder The best hummingbird feeders are easy to disassemble and clean, and have perches for the birds to sit on while drinking nectar. The most commonly available hummingbird feeders have a base and a removable nectar reservoir, but no perches. You can get more enjoyment out of your hummingbird feeder by adding perches. The birds will be much more likely to stay for several minutes, and you'll have better luck seeing and observing them. Heavy coated wire can be used to make an inexpensive but effective perch for the birds to sit on. Steps 1 Prepare the feeder. Remove the base from the reservoir and place the base on your work surface. 2 Make the anchor wire. Measure around the point where the reservoir attaches to the feeder plus 1" (2.5cm). 3 Secure the anchor wire. Bend the last 1/2" of each end of this wire into a little hook. Bend the wire into a circle and hook the ends together. Bend the wire a little more if necessary to make it round. Fit it over the feeder base. It should be a loose fit. 4

Use Natural Cleaning Products by Jan Baz

Use Natural Cleaning Products Five Methods:Using Salt for Scrubbing PowerUsing Vinegar to Remove Stains and DeodorizeCleansing with the Power of Baking SodaTurning to Lemons for FreshnessPolishing with Olive Oil For those who want to eliminate or reduce the toxicity in their lives, cleaning with natural or plant-based products can contribute to healthy living. Typically you’ll only need household baking products that not only can help you bake a cake, but contain magical cleaning powers as well. Method 1 of 5: Using Salt for Scrubbing Power 1 Pour a half cup of salt down clogged drains. The grit from salt has sandblasting properties to reduce and remove built up scum. After pouring salt down the drain run warm water for a few minutes so it works its way through the system. 2 Remove grease from pans using a teaspoon of salt. Sprinkle liberally over the greasy pan and then follow up with a clean wet sponge or rag. 3 Sprinkle salt on hot oven food spills. Scrape away any superfluous food and then sprinkle salt on the spill. Allow to simmer for a few minutes before scraping away, followed by a wet washcloth. Method 2 of 5: Using Vinegar to Remove Stains and Deodorize

Are Sugar Free Drinks Healthy For You?

Are Sugar Free Drinks Healthy For You? Who does not enjoy a tall glass of milkshake of their favourite fruit, be it the middle of the day or at the end of the day? But have you thought if that glass loaded with sugar, is healthy? While we all know that sugar can be fattening, we often tend to ignore the fact and binge on sweets and dishes made of sugar! In today’s time, an appealing external appearance has become significant in every walk of life. While men aim for a perfect V shaped physique, women desire for hourglass body contours. In pursuit of such figures, everyone desires to lose their excessive layers of fat. Switching to sugar free drinks seems like the most convenient mode of weight reduction in recent times. The markets are flooded with products formulated from sugar substitutes. The list includes drinks, jellies, ice creams, candies and yoghurt. The question that looms large on the minds of most consumers is that are these products actually safe for consumption. Let us scrutinise the actual ingredients. Comprehensive Understanding Of Sugar Substitutes: Sugar substitutes are products that are devoid of the traditional form of sugar that is sucrose (1). Some of the variants under the umbrella of sugar substitutes are artificial sweeteners, natural sweeteners, novel sweeteners and sugar alcohols. The terminology can be extremely confusing and misleading for a layperson. Manufacturers wrongly lure consumers under the false designation of sugar-free. In fact, some sugar substitutes sold as natural are actually processed during the manufacturing stage. Sugar-free drinks are also referred to as diet or zero calorie drinks. These are versions of carbonated drinks that are devoid of sugar. Instead, they contain artificial sweeteners. Obesity is one of the leading factors behind diabetes (2).  And the potential buyers of sugar-free drinks are patients of diabetes, those involved in vigorous sports activities and, of course, the large proportion of population desirous of weight reduction. Whether you opt for a sugar-free Red Bull or Diet Coke, it is cardinal to evaluate the safety of the product. Everything comes with its own merits and demerits. In contrast to the conventional sugar laden drinks, these innovative forms of beverages are certainly low in calories. However, the question is that, are they actually healthy to consume. The Pros: 1. Zero Calories: The biggest asset of sugar-free drinks is that they are non-nutritive in characteristic. With an almost zero level of calorie content, these beverages form a perfect weight reduction option. In contrast to this, a 12 ounce can of normal sweetened drink or cafe latte has the potential to add 125 calories to your system (3). 2. Aids In Controlling High Sugar Level: Sugar free drinks are certa

Use Citrus Fruit Peels in the Home and Garden

Use Citrus Fruit Peels in the Home and Garden Eight Methods:Which peel appeals?Lemon peelOrange peelGrapefruit peelCooking with peelHousehold uses for peelPests begone with peelPeel as scent Citrus peels can be used in myriad ways instead of simply tossing them out or composting them. In a household that consumes many oranges, lemons, grapefruit, tangelo, and other citrus, making use of the peels can save you money and produce some wonderful results. This article presents a few suggestions to get you started. Method 1 of 8: Which peel appeals? 1 Know your peel. There are many types of citrus, including orange, mandarin, kumquat, grapefruit, lemon, lime, pomelo, citron (citrus apple), tangerines, etc. Always wash the peel extremely well before use. If possible, prefer organic sources rather than those which have been sprayed, especially for any food or internal use. If you can't get organic fruit, use a very good fruit and vegetable scrub to remove chemical traces. See "Warnings" below for the possibility of dermatitis and allergic reactions to citrus peel. 2 Use kumquat peel. Use the peel of a kumquat to make marmalade. Just cook the chopped peel with sugar-water until it's like a syrup — use your favorite marmalade recipe. Method 2 of 8: Lemon peel 1 Use lemon peel. There are so many potential lemon peel uses that entire chapters in books have been devoted to it. 2 Here are some great ideas to get you started: Peel a lemon and use it to bathe yourself in the shower. It leaves your body and hair smelling fresh and clean. Infuse lemon peel in your tea to add a delicious lemony taste. Prepare fresh lemon peel Make candied lemon peel Make lemon brandy Citrus peels such as peel of lemon work well for roasting chicken. Put peel into the chicken and roast. You will find a great smelling and good tasting chicken. Lemon is often used as a cocktail garnish. Method 3 of 8: Orange peel 1 Use orange peel. Orange peel also has many possible uses. Here are a few: Use the peel to keep your brown sugar soft by putting it in the packaging with the brown sugar. Make candied orange peel. Make preserved orange peel. Use as a garnish on fruit juice drinks, cocktails, and salads. Method 4 of 8: Grapefruit peel

Exercise Regularly to Keep Lifestyle Diseases Away

Exercise Regularly to Keep Lifestyle Diseases Away Cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and osteoporosis - Indians are facing an unhealthy future burdened with a slew of lifestyle diseases. But instead of expensive medication and therapy, the cure lies in making exercise a compulsory part of everyday life, health experts say. "Indians are increasingly leading a sedentary and machine-dependent life, which may seem comfortable but has extremely adverse effects on health," T.S. Kler, Head of the Department Cardiology, Fortis Escorts Heart Institute and Research Centre, told IANS. Kler said with increasingly hectic lifestyles, most Indians in urban areas nowadays do not walk to the neighbourhood store but rather order groceries on phone for home delivery or drive down. "We do not climb stairs any more, with lifts being omnipresent. Riding bicycles to work or to school is not cool in urban areas any more.

How to Add a Snap to Leather

How to Add a Snap to Leather Snap closures are a practical and economical method to add sturdy fasteners to leather items. However, snap setting is a task that many leather crafters find daunting. Posts sometimes bend, caps become misaligned, and the list of pitfalls can be exhausting. With the right tools and a few simple steps, learning how to add a snap to leather can be rewarding. Steps 1 Select your snaps keeping in mind that the length and style vary considerably. The width, length and style vary considerably, so it is important to choose the right type of snap according to the type of garment and the thickness of the leather. Many leather crafters prefer industrial quality snaps, since they consistently remain firm in their setting, while lower quality snaps tend to loosen up over time. 2 Measure the diameter of the snap posts in relation to the width of your hole-punch tool. The proper sizing is imperative to insure that the snap is set snugly.

SweetWorks Celebration Candies - Bears

SweetWorks Celebration Candies - Bears I’ve been putting off this review ofSweetWorks Celebration Candies for months. I’ve seen them at stores quite a bit lately, not just the bears, but SweetWorks makes a wide variety of shapes and color variations for different party needs. My hesitation was that they look great, but didn’t taste like much at all. This particular variation is little candy coated bears in pearlescent yellow, green and white. The sparkly coating is created with food-safe mica based pigments. I got a sample of their peg bag of this variety that’s 12 ounces, but I’ve seen smaller 6 ounce bags and of course some wholesalers will sell by the case. They’re a very popular item for candy buffets, or for decorating and party favors for baby showers and birthday parties. They’re made by OakLeaf in Canada. The package says that it’s peanut free, tree nut free and gluten free, however, the package says that their facility does use milk and soy. The bears don’t smell like much, a little perfumey but otherwise a clean smell. I don’t know if they have particular flavors, as the package only mentions what you can do with them: candy buffet, baked goods, party favors, themed events, candy dish, bridal shower, baby showers. Nowhere does it mention just eating or how they’ll taste. They’re a pressed dextrose candy, a compacted powder made from glucose (dextrose) is flavored and stamped out under high pressure to make the candies. Then they’re tumbled with some colors and glazes to make them even prettier. What is also nice about them is that they’re designed on both sides, so the front is the bear’s face and belly, the back has a tiny little buttocks tushy thing going on. When I was at the Lolli & Pops candy store, I noticed that they had some uncoated multicolored bears as well, so I picked those up to see if there was a flavor difference. These are actually quite different from the coated version, which is kind of sad, because these are nicer. The texture is a little on the powdery side, compared to the SweeTarts tablets but not as chalky as Smarties. Green is Lime - which is rare. It’s a more floral flavor than most lime candies, and much less sour than a traditional SweeTart. Red is Cherry and passable, though more sour than cherry flavored. Heck, it might even be strawberry. Orange is Orange and has a good orange soda flavor that balances the tart and juicy flavors. Yellow is Lemon or maybe Pineapple. It was terrible, sweet and soapy. Purple is Grape and probably my favorite - tart, floral and completely artificial. Blue is Raspberry and so flowery, it was more like a soap. These are nice edible decorations, but not great candy. I think the pearlescent bears may work well in decorating recipes since they don’t have a flavor, they won’t compete with anything. OakLeaf also makes Cry Baby Tears, which are the candies you’d want to get if you want something extremely sour with very little flavor variation.

Make a Zoetrope

Make a Zoetrope A zoetrope works similar to a flip book: if you move many images through a single spot fast enough, it creates the illusion of a single, animated image.

How to Apply Polyurethane

How to Apply Polyurethane Polyurethane is a type of synthetic varnish used for finishing and sealing wood. In interior applications such as finishing floors and wood furniture, polyurethane is harder and more resistant to abrasion than its naturally-derived counterparts. It is also cheap, easy to use, and available in a range of different finishes from glossy to matte. Learning how to apply polyurethane in a wood finishing project is a straightforward matter requiring only a few tools. Steps 1 Position your work for applying the polyurethane. You will need to work in a well-ventilated area, because polyurethane produces harsh fumes. It is also important to have either old towels or scrap newspaper on hand to catch spills; polyurethane is designed to bond to surfaces, and is therefore very difficult to clean up. 2 Sand your wood before applying any finish coats. Whether your wood is unfinished or has an old finish on it, go over the whole piece with fine-grit sandpaper. Sanding removes dust and debris, and also improves the polyurethane's adhesion. 3 Wipe the piece down with a clean tack cloth. This removes any dust or small wood particles left behind by the sandpaper. Generally, sanding should always be accompanied by a cleaning with a tack cloth or a clean lint free rag lightly soaked with mineral spirits.

How to Dry Mushrooms by Jan Baz

How to Dry Mushrooms Three Methods:Drying Mushrooms In The OvenDrying Mushrooms NaturallyFreeze-Drying Mushrooms Dried mushrooms are a big deal--they are packed with flavor, fantastic in tons of dishes, and can be stored for essentially an eternity. You can rehydrate them and use them in soups, risottos, pasta dishes...pretty much every delicious recipe you can think of. Follow the steps listed in this article to make your own dried mushrooms. Method 1 of 3: Drying Mushrooms In The Oven 1 Clean the mushrooms you are going to dry. If possible, use a brush or dry paper towel to wipe any dirt off of the mushrooms. You want to avoid getting the mushrooms wet while cleaning them because the water could cause other competing fungi or mold to grow on the mushroom while they are drying or after they have been stored. This extra fungi or mold could, in turn, make you ill if you eat it.[1] If there are renegade spots of dirt that won’t allow themselves to be brushed away, you can use a damp cloth or paper towel to scrub them off. Just make sure to wipe that same spot with a dry cloth or paper towel to absorb any moisture left behind. Ad 2 Cut the mushrooms. The thicker the mushrooms, the longer it takes for them to dry out. To speed up the drying process, cut the mushrooms into slices approximately 1/8 inch (0.3 cm) thick. They will still have enough flavor packed into the slices that they will be an excellent addition to any dish, but they will dry in a much shorter amount of time than whole mushrooms. 3 Place the mushrooms on a baking sheet. Make sure that the mushrooms lay flat and side by side. None of the mushrooms should overlap, as this could cause them to fuse together while drying. Lay them out in one layer. Do not oil the sheets, as the mushrooms will absorb the oil, changing their flavor and causing them to take longer to dry. 4 Preheat the oven to 150 degrees Fahrenheit (65 Celsius). Once the oven has reached the designated temperature, place the baking sheet with the mushrooms into the oven. Leave the mushrooms in for one hour.[2]

How to Buy a Puppy by Jan Baz

How to Buy a Puppy Four Parts:Preparing for a PuppyAdopting from a ShelterBuying from a BreederChoosing the Right Puppy If you’ve made the exciting decision to get a new puppy, you’re probably ready to bring one home as soon as possible. Taking some time to figure out which breed is the best fit and preparing your home for a puppy will make the process go more smoothly. Then it’s time to decide between adopting a dog from a shelter, where you’ll be asked to pay a relatively small adoption fee, or buying a pedigreed puppy from a responsible breeder. Part 1 of 4: Preparing for a Puppy 1 Make sure you really want a puppy and the pros outweigh the cons. While a puppy is a cute furry blank slate, it also requires a lot more time, attention, and money. Make a list of all the things you want from a dog and consider whether you can find that in a dog that's over a year old. Ad 2 Choose a breed that’s right for your family. Research breeds with characteristics that make them a good fit for your life situation. Dogs come in all shapes, sizes and personalities, and choosing the wrong breed can result in heartbreak for all when you realize it's not a good fit for your home. Here are a few important factors that might influence what type of breed you get:[1] Consider the energy level of the breed. For example, if you don't enjoy being outdoors much, getting a Siberian husky probably isn't the best idea. Huskies love to jump and run, and they need hours of daily exercise. Better to choose a puppy who will grow up to be a dog that likes napping and hanging out with you at home. Think about how much you want to groom the puppy as it grows older. Some breeds need to be brushed at least once a week, while short-haired dogs like Boston terriers and dalmatians require less grooming.[2] If you rent, keep breed restrictions in mind. While the breed of your dog might not be a problem now, it might be a problem when you relocate. 3 Make sure you have enough space. It's one of the most important things to consider before you bring a puppy home. Remember that some breeds grow quite large and need a lot of room to stretch out and play. Others may not get as big, but they have energetic natures and require plenty of space in order to thrive and be happy. Some breeds require more than others, but they all need room to play and exercise. Consider these questions when you're decide which breed to get: Do you have an outdoor area where the dog can play? If you don't, is there a dog park nearby? It's really important to have easy access to a place where your dog can go to the bathroom and get regular exercise. If you have a yard, is it fenced? If it's not fenced, are you willing to fence it? 4 Reconsider your schedule to make time for a puppy. When you first bring home a puppy, you'll need to devote a lot of time to training. Puppies need to be fed three times a day and taken outside every few hours. When they grow up, some dogs are more independent than others, but they all need a lot of time and attention. If you're away from home during the day, you'll need to find someone to feed the puppy and take him out on a schedule. Make sure you have time to give the dog adequate exercise, too. Puppies need a lot of play time, and when they get a little older they need frequent exercise to stay healthy and happy. 5 Create a budget to factor in all the expenses. Aside from the initial cost of the puppy, factor in how much you'll need to spend on food, toys, grooming supplies and vet care. Raising a puppy isn't cheap, and it's important to make sure you can afford it before you buy a puppy and bring him home. A purebred puppy will be more expensive than one you adopt from a shelter. Plan to spend anywhere from $100 to thousands of dollars up front, depending on the breed. Depending on the breed, you can expect to pay anywhere from $55 to $235 monthly for the dog's entire life. That doesn't take unexpected vet bills, kennel cost, and other special needs into account.[3] 6 Puppy proof your home. Part 2 of 4: Adopting from a Shelter

How to Use a Pedometer by Jan Baz

How to Use a Pedometer Three Parts:Recording Your StepsSetting Step GoalsBoosting Your Fitness In recent years, physical fitness has become a global health concern, so more people than ever are looking for ways to work exercise into their daily routines.[1] For many, pedometers offer a convenient way to track daily physical activity (usually in the form of the number of steps taken). These handy devices are smaller than a pager, affordable, widely-available, and easy to start using with just a few simple "steps!" Part 1 of 3: Recording Your Steps 1 If necessary, set the length of your steps. Most kinds of pedometer will automatically be able to detect your steps without any input from you. However, to be able to calculate the total distance you've walked, some require you to set the average length of your stride. If you're unsure of whether your pedometer requires this information, consult its operating manual. To find your average step length, grab a tape measure, start walking in a straight line, stop suddenly at a random step (like, for instance, step number seven), and measure the distance between the heels of your feet.[2] No two models of pedometers are exactly alike, so the way you input your average step length for one may not be the same as for others. Some common pedometers are set like this: Press the "Mode" button until you see a reading for your miles traveled. Press "Set." You will see a default step length setting — usually about 30 in (75 cm). Adjust your step length with the appropriate buttons on the pedometer. Ad 2 Fasten the pedometer on. Pedometers count your steps by recording the number of times they feel a "shake" or "bump" that occur throughout the day. Usually, these happen with each step you take, so the number you see on your pedometer is usually a good (sometimes even exact) measure of how many steps you've taken. Because pedometers work this way, for a pedometer to be able to count your steps, it has to be attached to your clothes or body. The most common types of pedometers are worn by clipping them to the edge of a pocket, the waistband of a pair of pants, or a belt so that they rest on the hips.[3] These usually work best if they're aligned with the center of the thigh. If your pedometer comes with a safety band, try fastening it to a belt loop to prevent the pedometer from falling off. Note that not all pedometers are worn at the waist. Some, for instance, are worn around the wrist.[4] In this case, the pedometer is usually secured exactly like a wristwatch. Some high-end devices called accelerometers that function similarly to pedometers are even worn on the foot or ankle.[5] 3 Start moving! Once you've attached your pedometer securely and ensured that it's on, you can usually begin moving and it will count your steps automatically. Every time the pedometer shakes from the up-and-down motion of an average stride, it registers another step. No input is needed on your part — you can simply forget about your pedometer until the end of the day! You're not limited just to walking when you wear your pedometer. You can alsojog, run, or sprint and the pedometer should record your steps during these activities as well.

How to Grip a Sinker Pitch by Jan Baz

How to Grip a Sinker Pitch A sinker pitch, also called a two-seam fastball, drops just before it reaches the plate, throwing off the hitter. It drops more than a typical fastball but moves almost as fast, and it's a great addition to any skilled pitcher's repertoire. Your fingers grip the ball parallel to the seams, with your thumb directly under the ball. Practice the sinker pitch with slightly different positioning to find out what grip gives you the best motion for the pitch. Steps 1 Position your fingers along the seams. Turn the ball so that your forefinger and middle finger are position along the seams where they're closest together. Your fingers should lay directly on top of the seams, parallel to each other. Tuck your ring finger and pinky finger back. Try an alternate grip. Instead of positioning

How to Bend Bamboo

How to Bend Bamboo Three Methods:Bending Bamboo Using WaterBending Bamboo Using a KnifeBending Bamboo Using Heat Bamboo is a widely grown, renewable resource. It is used in crafts, furniture making, and even as a building material. When bamboo is freshly cut and green, it is very pliable, and can be shaped and manipulated for various uses. Learn how simple it is to bend bamboo to meet your needs. Method 1 of 3: Bending Bamboo Using Water 1 Fill a tub with lukewarm water. Place your bamboo poles in the tub and allow them to soak overnight. As with wood, bamboo requires moisture to bend. The moisture softens the lining and hemicellulose in the bamboo cells and allows them to flex. Without heat and moisture, these molecules crystallize making them virtually immovable.[1] Depending on the size and thickness of the bamboo, soaking time may be longer. 2 Test your bamboo. Pull the bamboo out of the water and slowly bend the bamboo, attempting to coax it into the shape you need. If you hear a crackling sound, the bamboo has not been soaked long enough, and needs to be placed back in the water. 3 Draw your desired shape. Take a large sheet of paper and sketch out the shape you want you bamboo to take. Place this paper on top of your large piece of plywood. 4 Nail the design. Using the sketch as your guide, hammer nails into the plywood, following the sketched shape. Each nail should be approximately an inch apart. Hammer in a second row of nails. This row should run parallel to the shape you just nailed and the distance between the two rows should be slightly larger than the diameter of the bamboo.

How to Build a Bird Bath by Jan Baz

How to Build a Bird Bath A carefully placed and well-constructed bird bath can bring new species of birds to your yard or garden. Placement is critical so that birds feel safe visiting the bath. Bird bath construction can be completed in a few steps. Steps 1 Decide where to place your bird bath. Birds must be able to easily access the bath while feeling safe. Do not place the bird bath too close to brush. Cats are natural predators of birds, and because they can easily hide in nearby brush, birds are likely to avoid proximity to these plantings. Keep the bird bath out of wide-open areas. Because hawks can swoop down from a high-glide and capture birds out in the open, birds will not frequent a bath without access to protected areas. Place your bird bath in a location that gets midday shade (around 1:00 p.m.). Some sun is important; seek a balance of lighting to ensure you build a bird bath the birds want to visit. 2 Place a wooden post in the ground. For this simple bird bath design, a mailbox post (or comparable) will do. Dig a hole where you want to place your bird bath using a shovel. The hole should be large enough to seat the post.

Natural Remedies For Heart Palpitations

Natural Remedies For Heart Palpitations Ever had that dreaded feeling in your chest, as if something bad is about to happen? Do not mistake it for your sixth sense; it is actually your heart beating out of tune. If you experienced heart palpitations, then you know the fluttering feeling can be more than just excitement. But worry not, these palpitations can be controlled by using simple natural remedies. Would you like to know what they are? Then take a moment and have a look at this post! Heart Palpitations: The heart is one of the most important organs in our body. So, let us first understand why our heart slips out of rhythm sometimes. Heart palpitations are disturbances in the regular heart beat. Also called cardiac arrhythmias, they make you feel like your heart has skipped a beat (1). There is a distinct drumming in the chest brought on by heartbeats that are too fast and hard. It is only obvious that they fill us with anxiety. However, in most cases, heart palpitations are not serious and subside on their own. With safe interventions, they go away sooner. Few people with medical conditions should consider palpitations seriously as they may hint towards something worse. Those flutters may mean congestive heart failure, coronary artery disease or heart attack. Palpitations accompanied by chest pain, dizziness, fainting, chest pain and shortness of breath are sure signs of a trip to the emergency ward.

How to Reheat Bread by Jan Baz

How to Reheat Bread   Beginner VersionIntermediate VersionAdvanced Version   If you bought a special loaf of bakery bread and you're wondering how to reheat it to preserve its taste and texture, your best bet is heating it in the oven for about 15 minutes. You can reheat bread on the stove, too, but some breads will come out a little chewy this way (and don't even try the microwave). And if you're looking for a classic, quick reheating method, nothing beats making toast. Method 1 of 3: Using the Oven 1 Preheat the oven to 350 °F (177 °C). This is the best temperature for reheating bread. Any hotter and the bread could burn quickly. A lower temperature would require a longer cooking time, resulting in dry bread. If you want a soft interior with a chewy crust, 350℉ (175℃) is the way to go.[1] It's better to slice the bread after reheating rather than slicing it before reheating. Sliced bread will heat quickly and become hard and crunchy if you're not careful. However, if you want to make bread crumbs or croutons, you can slice or dice the bread. Toss it with some melted butter, a dash of salt and pepper and some garlic powder, and you'll end up with a delicious topping for your salad. 2 Wrap the bread in foil. This will protect the crust and help stop it from getting burned while the inside of the bread heats. If you try to reheat it unwrapped, the crust could overcook and turn out hard. 3

How to Create Your Own Hand Painted Kitchen

How to Create Your Own Hand Painted Kitchen Two Methods:Preparing the SurfacePainting A hand-painted kitchen beats a factory finished kitchen hands down every time. It has a classic look that you just won’t get from a spray finished kitchen. If you have a kitchen that is looking dated, and you would like to really transform it without having to rip out the whole lot and put a new kitchen in, then think about a hand painted kitchen. You will be surprised by how much of a difference it will make. Painted properly, your old kitchen will be given a new lease of life. Method 1 of 2: Preparing the Surface What's on the surface of your kitchen cabinets really dictates the type of preparation needed before painting. For laminate kitchens it's best to remove the laminate from the doors first if you can. If the laminate is well fixed then leave it on. 1 For previously painted or varnished kitchens Ad 2 Give the surface a good rub down with a 150 grade sandpaper. 3 Dust off before wiping down with white spirits on a rag. For wooden kitchens that have been oiled or waxed in the past 4 Give them a really good scrub using the white spirits and wire wool. Every square inch will need to be cleaned. You might need to scrub them a couple of times to be sure you have removed the wax or oil. Method 2 of 2: Painting If you are painting over a previously painted surface then you can jump to Step 3. 1 Use the bin primer and start painting from the top of the kitchen and working your way down. Bin primer dries very fast so likewise you will need to move as quickly as you can with it. When painting the cabinet doors start with the outside first before painting the inside. Make sure to lay off the paint with brush strokes going from top to bottom, not left to right. If there are panels on the doors, then paint these before painting the surrounding door. 2 When the bin primer has dried use the sanding sponges to rub the paint smooth, then dust down the whole kitchen with your dust brush and finally wipe it down with spirits on a rag

How to Score in Curling

How to Score in Curling Three Parts:Game BasicsMaking ShotsScoring The rules of curling are simple to understand, but actually scoring points can be difficult to master and requires the use of considerable strategy. Part 1 of 3: Game Basics 1 Know how teams are set up. Each game of curling is played with two teams, and each team has four members. Each member of the team will throw two stones per end, and each of those stones is played one at a time, not back-to-back. The other players will help direct the stone toward the house. Players will determine their order of rotation before the game and follow that rotation throughout all the ends. 2 Understand the layout of the ice. The actual playing surface is called a sheet, an each sheet has a house and a button.[1] The "house" is the target or dartboard at the end of the sheet. The "button" is the bull's eye of this target. Both teams will aim for the same house and button. Players will start from a position that is 57 feet (17.4 m) away from the house. To stay in play, the stone must stop in between the hog line, which is 21 feet (6.4 m) from the center of the house, and the back line, which lies behind the house. 3 Send eight granite stones down the ice. During each end, each team will send eight separate granite stones (sometimes called “rocks”) down the ice toward the goal. Each stone weighs 42 lbs (19 kg). The teams will take alternate turns. In other words, Team A will curl one stone, then Team B will curl one stone. Team A will then curl their second stone, and Team B will curl their second after that. This continues until each team has used eight stones.

How to Braid String

How to Braid String Three Methods:Three-String BraidFour-String (Flat) BraidEight-String Braid Braiding string creates a strong, thin thread for jewelry or other crafts. Learning to braid with string is also a great way to test out new types of braids before you use them on hair, rope or ribbon. Try your hand with three, four and eight string-braids. Method 1 of 3: Three-String Braid 1 Purchase spools of string. If you want your string braid to be one color, cut three lengths of the same string. If you want a multi-colored braid, cut three lengths of string in different colors. Make sure that you cut the string in the same exact length each time. A length of one foot is a good starting point for braiding string. 2 Gather the ends of the string. Pull them so that they are even. 3 Tie a knot 2 inches from one end. Cut a three-inch (7.5cm) piece of tape and then tape the knotted end to the table. Smooth the tape on the table’s surface so that it will stay while you pull on the string.[1] 4 Separate the three pieces of string on the table. Pick up the right string between your right thumb and index finger. Pick up the left string between your left thumb and index finger. 5 Pick up the third, and middle, string with your right middle finger. As you braid, you will pass the middle string between the middle fingers of your right and left hands. 6 Twist the right string toward the center, over the middle string. Your wrist will turn counterclockwise. 7 Grasp the new center string with your left middle finger. Twist the left string over center string. You wrist will rotate clockwise. 8 Repeat this motion, exchanging the right string for the center string and the left string for the center

Luckily, with this guide, a few popsicle sticks, a creative mind, and few other household items, you can now build a glorious bridge of your very own. Part 1 of 3: Preparing Your Supplies 1 Determine the length of the bridge you plan to build. Deciding on the length of bridge you would like to build is something you should consider prior to shopping for supplies. There are various sized popsicle sticks on the market and prior planning will be helpful when gathering supplies for the project. Laying a yardstick on a table may help to give a better idea of the length of bridge you would like to create. 2 Prepare your workspace. Place a piece of cardboard or construction paper on a table or any other type of smooth, flat, and level surface. Make sure that the size of your workspace is large enough to accommodate the bridge you will be constructing. 3 Know what you're building. A truss bridge is a bridge that uses triangles in its frame to give great strength to its structural integrity. Part 2 of 3: Constructing the Beams of the Truss 1 Plan out your truss beam layout. These four beams will run along the length of the bridge and are the units that the triangles will be added to in future steps. Lay out 12 rows of popsicle sticks, making each of the rows equal in length. Use scissors to cut four popsicle sticks in half. Place each of the popsicle stick halves at the ends of the middle

How to Install a Chandelier by Jan Baz

How to Install a Chandelier Three Parts:Removing an Old FixtureInstalling Support for your ChandelierAttaching the Chandelier Chandeliers are an attractive lighting option, and basic installation using a strong, existing ceiling support should take an hour or so. Be sure to take the extra time to install an appropriate support as described below if your chandelier is heavier that your previous light fixture. An assistant is recommended to make this process faster and easier. Part 1 of 3: Removing an Old Fixture 1 Turn off the power. Switch off the power to the circuit where the chandelier will be located or unscrew the fuse for the fixture you are replacing. If the circuits are unlabeled, you may have to test them with trial and error until the current fixture turns off. If you don't know where your electric panel is, see How to Find the Fuse Box or Circuit Breaker Box. Consider taping a note to the circuit box to let other people in the house know that you'll be working with electrical wiring and that the circuit should not be turned back on. 2 Verify that the power is off. Turn the light switch on and off a few times to make sure there is no power running to the current fixture. If there is no fixture currently installed in that location, use a non-contact voltage tester or circuit tester to test each wire. You may use a multimeter instead, although the device is more complicated to use. Follow instructions carefully when using a multimeter to test for voltage. Using the wrong settings could give you a false reading or damage the device. 3 Remove detachable portions from the old fixture. If a fixture is currently installed that includes light bulbs, glass light covers, or other detachable parts, remove them now and set them aside. This makes it easier to detach the fixture without breaking these pieces. You may skip this step if the fixture is small and you have an assistant to help you remove it. 4 Detach the old fixture. You may require a screwdriver or wrench to remove any screws or lock nuts attaching the fixture to the ceiling. Make sure you or an assistant has a firm grip on the fixture before you detach it from the ceiling. Do not detach the wires yet. This step may be much easier with an assistant to hold the fixture. A stepladder may also be required. Do not let the old fixture hang with no support other than the wiring. This will likely cause the fixture to fall and could damage the wiring as well. 5 Note how the wires are connected. There should be two or more wires connecting your old fixture to your home electrical system. They may be color coded with white and black insulation, or identified with a ridge or lettering. While full wiring instructions will be given later on in these instructions, you may have an easier time if you make a diagram of where each wire is connected. If the wires are not easily distinguished from each other, mark them with colored tape. 6 Disconnect the wiring. Unscrew the plastic wire connectors counterclockwise and detach wires. Transfer the old fixture to a storage space where it won't get in the way of the installation. Part 2 of 3: Installing Support for your Chandelier

How to Build a Gnome Home

How to Build a Gnome Home Building a gnome home is fun. Even if you don't believe in gnomes, these magical houses are still fun to make. They are usually fairly small, as gnomes are supposedly the size of your thumb. There are many different gnome homes, but the easiest is the lean-to. Steps 1 Find a good spot for a gnome home. It is really easy, just find a suitable tree, not way too wide, but not thin like a birch. White pines work well. 2 Collect sticks and pine needles and other things that you think might be useful. Don't use trash, since gnomes are very protective of the environment. Also don't break sticks off of live trees or destroy animal habitats.

Build a Trebuchet

Build a Trebuchet Three Parts:Planning Your TrebuchetBuilding Your TrebuchetUsing Your Trebuchet A trebuchet (pronounced TREB-you-shay) is a medieval English siege engine or catapult that consists of a large arm mounted on a cart or stand. In the counterpoise style of trebuchet[1], a counterweight pulls down the arm, launching a large stone or other projectile from its resting place in the sling opposite the counterweight toward the target, much like David using his sling against Goliath.[2] Trebuchets can be built large or small, but all trebuchets, correctly built, illustrate the principle of leverage. Part 1 of 3: Planning Your Trebuchet 1 Decide where you will use your trebuchet. This will determine what size of trebuchet you’ll want to make and what materials make it out of. If you plan to use your trebuchet indoors, you’ll want to make a small trebuchet. You can make a wooden trebuchet with a base about 12 inches (30 cm) and a swing arm of about 16 inches (40 cm) or a smaller and lighter model out of popsicle sticks. If you plan to use your trebuchet outdoors, you’ll want to make a larger trebuchet. A backyard trebuchet could be made of wood or PVC pipe with a 24-inch (60 cm) base and a 32-inch (80 cm) swing arm. A trebuchet to demonstrate at a Renaissance faire could be several times larger than this, if you have sufficient space to launch its projectiles, but you’d have to design it to be taken apart for transport and reassembled on site unless you have a pickup or trailer to haul it around in. The instructions in the section “Building Your Trebuchet” are written for building a trebuchet using pieces of wood. You can adapt them to whatever building material you choose to use. 2 Consider what you want to launch with your trebuchet. This will have an impact on what material you make your trebuchet from, how large and durable your sling must be, and how heavy a counterweight you should obtain. An indoor trebuchet could launch grapes, paper wads, or Nerf balls, while an outdoor trebuchet could launch water balloons, tennis balls (perfect for Renfaire mixed doubles), golf balls (for Renfaire golf), clay balls, ball bearings, croquet balls, billiard balls, or even actual rocks. (Medieval trebuchets launched not only rocks, but also chunks of burning pitch and dead horse carcasses, a Middle Ages form of chemical warfare.) Whatever you decide you want to launch with your trebuchet, your counterweight should be from 100 to 133 times the weight of your projectile.[3] If you want to launch items of various weights, you can set up your trebuchet with a bucket or bag to hold and adjust the counterweight. (If you use a bucket, its weight forms part of the overall counterweight.) Part 2 of 3: Building Your Trebuchet 1 Cut and sand the frame pieces and swing arm. For an indoor trebuchet, you can use 1 x 6-inch (2.5 x 15 cm) planking. For an outdoor trebuchet, you can use 2 x 4-inch (5 x 10 cm) planking. You’ll need to cut 8 pieces: Two long base pieces. For a small trebuchet, you may want to make them 1 foot (30 cm) long; for a larger trebuchet, they can be longer. Two uprights. These should be about 5/6 the length of the base pieces or as long as the base pieces, but no longer. If you made the long base pieces 1 foot (30 cm) long, they would be 10 to 12 inches (24 to 30 cm) long. Three cross pieces. These can be 1/2 the length of either the uprights or of the long base pieces. You want the trebuchet to be fairly narrow to ensure that it throws its projectiles in a straight line. One swing arm, or beam.[4] This piece should be 1 1/3 times the length of the base pieces; if the base pieces are 1 foot (30 cm) long, the swing arm should be 16 inches (40 cm) long.[5]

How to Build a Siren

How to Build a Siren Three Parts:Building the Siren's Spinning CylinderBuilding the Siren's Outer PortionFinishing the Siren The distinct rising and falling sound of an air raid siren is produced by a relatively simple machine. While the flatter pitch of most modern emergency vehicle sirens requires electronic circuitry to reproduce, the mechanical siren can be made with basic carpentry tools. Start small, since larger sirens require sturdier materials and precise building to function without breaking. Even a small siren will still probably end up loud enough, in your neighbors' opinion. Part 1 of 3: Building the Siren's Spinning Cylinder 1 Understand how a siren works. The heart of a mechanical siren is a spinning cylinder, or rotor, inside a stationary object, or stator. Both the rotor and the stator have holes cut at regular intervals, so air is alternately blocked and forced through. This results in a wave of pressure through the air, or in other words, a sound wave.[1]Because this design involves heavy materials moving at high speeds, a homemade siren can be difficult to make and potentially dangerous to operate. Starting with a siren rotor no more than 6 inches (15 centimeters) across is recommended. This can still be quite loud if attached to a motor. Alternatively, you can purchase a kit or download a plan for building an electronic siren. These use circuitry to send out a sound wave instead of mechanical air flow, and building them does not require any carpentry. While these instructions assumes you are using wood, it is possible to build a small siren out of almost any material. Try using thick cardboard, or a wide, shallow cookie tin. 2 Cut out two or three plywood circles. To make a simple, one-pitch siren, you'll only need two circles. If you would like a siren that has the distinct, two-tone sound of an air raid siren, cut out three circles instead. Trace each circle to the same size using a compass or circular object, then cut them out using a jigsaw or router. Optionally, for greater accuracy, attach a circle-cutting jig to your jigsaw before cutting.[2] Circles no more than 6 in. (15 cm) across are recommended for your first siren. A larger circle can produce a louder noise, but this will require a more powerful motor and more careful building to prevent the siren from breaking during use. Eye protection is recommended while handling high-speed saws. 3 Make holes in the center of the plywood circles. The first plywood circle will need a hole for attaching the shaft of a motor, in order to set it spinning. Drill this precisely at the center to keep it balanced, and choose a size that will tightly fit the shaft so it does not slip off. The second (and third) plywood circle should have a much larger circle removed using a jigsaw, 1/3 or 1/2 the radius of the full circle. This turns the second (and third) plywood circle into a disc shape. 4 Trace out a "shark fin" shape. Trace one of your circles onto a new piece of plywood. On this trace, use a flexible tape measure to measure 1/12 of the circle's circumference and mark it off at either end. Draw a concave line from one end and a convex one from the other, tapering toward each other to meet at a point, which will just touch the inside edge of your plywood discs. This should look similar to the stereotypical shape of a shark's dorsal fin, pointing toward the circle's center.

How to Create a Bedspring Vase Three Methods:Choosing a Suitable Bedspring and BasePreparing Your Bedspring and BaseCreate Your Holder Sometimes vases can get really boring. If you ever wanted to make a vase with a twist of spirals, you better try this one out! Method 1 of 3: Choosing a Suitable Bedspring and Base 1 Select a base of your choice. This can be a tin can's base, a round piece of metal etc. It is important to know what to choose as if affects the appearance of the work a lot because you can see the base. 2 Search for a bedspring with a design of your choice. It can be rusty or smooth depending on the effect when you use it on your flowers. The size of the bedspring is also very significant. Make sure it fits your base exactly. Make sure that it is suitable for flower also and is high or short enough. It's great if you could find a bedspring where it has equal circles so once you put in your flowers, they won't fall out but an uneven one looks better aesthetically. 3 Choose your soldering equipment for this project. It will be needed to stick the base to the spring. Don't forget about your gloves and safety goggles. Method 2 of 3: Preparing Your Bedspring and Base 1 Clean your bedspring. This helps the bedspring to be spray painted easier. Dust it with a brush or something light to remove the dirt.

How to Prevent Hair Breakage

How to Prevent Hair Breakage Three Methods:Changing the Products You UseSwitching Up Your Hair Care RoutineAvoiding the Worst Habits that Lead to Breakage When hair becomes dry and brittle, the shaft breaks, leading to frayed and split ends. It’s a common problem that can be avoided when you know how to take good care of your hair to keep it well hydrated. By changing the products you use and being gentle with your hair, you can have shiny, vibrant, healthy hair that won’t break. Method 1 of 3: Changing the Products You Use 1 Use shampoo that’s right for your hair type. If your hair is naturally brittle, it’s important to use a gentle shampoo that won’t strip away all of its natural oils. Dry, coarse hair is more likely to break than hair that’s oily. Look for a shampoo made with replenishing oils like shea butter, argan oil or almond oil. These will trap water against your hair shaft and help it stay hydrated and healthy. Look for shampoo labeled "sulfate free." Sulfates are harsh cleaning agents (the same ones used in dish detergent and other cleaning supplies) that strip the oils from your hair, leaving it dry and defenseless. Choosing a sulfate free shampoo is better for your hair. This is especially important if your hair is curly, wavy or coarse. It's more difficult for sebum, the natural oil produced by your scalp, to travel to the tips of these hair textures.[1] Consider low poo or no poo methods if your hair is extremely curly or coarse. Many have found that foregoing shampoo altogether and washing using only honey, conditioner or even plain water is better for their hair than using shampoo. 2 Use a hydrating conditioner. This replenishes the oils that your hair loses when you shampoo your hair. No matter what kind of shampoo you use, you should condition your hair to keep it from getting too dried out. Choose a conditioner that does not contain silicones, which coat your hair. Silicones are added to conditioner to hold moisture in, but they can only be washed away using harsh sulfate shampoos, so it's better to avoid them. Look for conditioners that contain oils as well as aloe and other natural hydrators. Deep condition your hair once a week by treating it with a deep conditioner product such as Moroccan hair oil, letting it soak in for several hours, then rinsing it out. This will protect your hair during the course of the week, helping it to stay hydrated. Coconut oil or olive oil are both great natural deep conditioners that you might already have in your cabinet. Comb a teaspoon or so of oil through your hair, put on a shower cap for 2 hours, then wash out the oil. . 3 Avoid styling products with harsh chemicals. Most commercial styling products are loaded with an array of chemicals that aren't very good for your hair. In addition to sulfates and silicones, you'll find alcohol, fragrances and other components that don't do you hair any favors, especially if your texture is coarse or curly. Toss out the hair spray, mousse, gel and other products with an inch-long list of ingredients that are hard to pronounce. Switch to a natural hair spray and mousse. You can make your own hair styling products by soaking a tablespoon of flax seeds in a cup of water overnight.

How to Match Colors by Jan Baz

How to Match Colors Three Methods:Developing an Eye for ColorMatching Colors in Your WardrobeChoosing Colors to Decorate Your House Whether you’re assembling your wardrobe, decorating a room or matting a painting, it’s helpful to know which colors help each other pop and look most appealing to the eyes. You can start by looking at a color wheel and learning which colors look best grouped together. Experimenting with different color combinations will help you develop a sense of what matches and what clashes. Method 1 of 3: Developing an Eye for Color 1 Learn about the color wheel. The color wheel is diagram of colors that provides a useful illustration of what colors match and what colors don't work well together.[1]The first color wheel was developed by Sir Isaac Newton in 1666, and variations on his design have been used as the basis of traditional color theory since then.[2] The color wheel is divided into the following parts: Primary colors: red, blue and yellow. These are the colors that cannot be mixed using any other colors. Secondary colors: Green, orange and purple. These colors are made by mixing primary colors in different combinations. Secondary and tertiary colors: Yellow-orange, red-orange, red-purple, blue-purple, blue-green and yellow-green. These are created by mixing a primary color with a secondary color. 2 Match primary colors with other primary colors. The concept of matching is also called "color harmony," which is achieved when colors create a pleasing effect. Red, yellow and blue always harmonize. These colors are bold and eye-catching, and they never really go out of style. Whether you're putting together a palette for your wardrobe, a painting or your dining room, you can depend on primary colors to lend your project a cheerful and bright appearance. Bold primary colors are often associated with young children, tropics, and sports teams. However, there is no reason you cannot play with darker or lighter hues. If you want your project to look more sophisticated, you might want to consider using just one or two of the primary colors, rather than all three. A red, blue, and yellow outfit might look a little juvenile, but a yellow and red combination be more sophisticated. 3 Match complementary colors. Look at the color wheel and pick any color, then move your finger to the color just opposite. Colors opposite on the wheel are complementary colors. When you place them next to each other, they help each other stand out and the combination looks appealing. Complementary colors of the same brightness and hue will always match. Popular complementary combinations include blue and orange, purple and yellow, and green and pink. When you choose two colors from random spots on the wheel, they may work well together, they may not, depending on the the project. 4 Match analogous colors. The concept is to stay within one color family in order to achieve harmony. These are the colors that are next to each other on the color wheel, like blue and indigo. Using varying shades of colors in the same family creates a nuanced look that has a beautiful, pleasing effect. For instance, a denim skirt with a light blue T-shirt and indigo scarf will likely go together well. Pick a favorite color and match it with a color to the right or left. Red goes with pink, yellow with orange, and so on. Any gradations in the same family will match as long as they are the same hue, brightness, and so forth. 5 Warm and Cool colors. Warm colors like yellow, orange, and red are on one side of the color wheel, and cool colors like blue, green, purple are on the other side. Any color can have an element of warmth or coolness depending on what is mixed in. For example, if you mix basic purple with red, you end up with a warm, vibrant reddish purple. If you mix purple with blue, you end up with a cool, calming violet purple. When

How to Card Wool

How to Card Wool Four Parts:Washing WoolDrying WoolHand Carding WoolRefining Carded Wool Wool carding separates and straightens sheep’s wool so that it can be used to make roving for fiber art or yarn for knitting.[1] These instructions take you through the process of hand processing wool at home. Part 1 of 4: Washing Wool 1 Shake off any superficial dirt or vegetation that has gathered on your wool.Freshly shorn sheep’s wool will also have dirt deep in the fibers, so you will need to wash it well. 2 Grab a bucket or clean out a sink to use as a washing basin. 3 Fill your basin with warm water at approximately 180 degrees Fahrenheit (82 Celsius). Water that is too hot will strip the wool of natural oils. 4 Pour in several squirts of Dawn dishwashing detergent. You can use any detergent with a pH between seven and nine without bleaching additives. Mix the detergent into the water. 5 Submerge your wool. Rub it with your hands to wash it thoroughly. 6 Drain your sink.

How to Cook Ahi Tuna

How to Cook Ahi Tuna Three Methods:Searing Ahi TunaBaking Ahi TunaMaking Tuna Tartare Ahi tuna, also known as yellowfin tuna, has a deliciously meaty taste. This hearty fish is an excellent source of protein, is low on fat, and it's extremely simple to prepare. Ahi tuna steaks are mostly grilled or seared to bring out the best in their flavour, but you can also bake them to reach a different texture. In case you are buying a piece of sushi-grade tuna, you can forego cooking and serve it raw. Method 1 of 3: Searing Ahi Tuna 1 Choose fresh or frozen tuna steaks. Ahi tuna is sold in form of large steaks or fillets that can be cooked in a similar fashion to beef steaks. Look for deep red tuna steaks with firm flesh. Avoid steaks that have a rainbow sheen or look dry, also avoid buying fish that looks mottled or pale in color. Buy a six-ounce steak per serving you need. If you're using frozen tuna steak, thaw it completely and put in the refrigerator before using. Fresh tuna is in season from late spring to early fall. If you're choosing fresh tuna, it's best to get it while it's in season. Frozen tuna is available all year round. Ahi or yellowfin tuna from the United States or Canada is the best choice, since it has relatively low levels of mercury and is not in danger of being overfished. Bluefin tuna should be avoided, as the mercury levels are higher and it is being over-fished across the world.[1] 2 Make a spice mixture for the tuna. Seared tuna is frequently coated with spices that complement the tuna's meaty flavour. You can use a steak rub or any other type of spice mix that includes ingredients like garlic powder, pepper and dried herbs. Try making your own spice mix by combining the following ingredients in a bowl (makes enough to coat one six-ounce steak): 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder 1/4 teaspoon dried basil 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano 3 Heat your skillet or grill. Tuna steaks and fillets are easy to sear on either a grill or stove top. The key is to fully heat the cooking implement you're using before adding the tuna. This will ensure that the tuna cooks evenly and attains a good crunchy sear. If you're using the stove top, heat a cast iron skillet or other heavy skillet over medium high

How to Frost Glass

How to Frost Glass Three Methods:Frosting a Large WindowFrosting a Glass-Panel DoorDesigning your Frosted Glass Frosting is crucial for adding privacy to the windows in your home, especially those in the bathroom. The process involves spraying a "foggy" solution onto parts of the window to make it slightly opaque. This allows natural light inside the room while obscuring the view into the room. Frosting glass isn't difficult, but it requires focus and attention to detail to ensure that the frost is applied correctly. Here are some ways to frost glass. Method 1 of 3: Frosting a Large Window 1 Wash the window thoroughly with a rag and window solution. Scrub until you have removed all dust and debris from the surface.[1] After washing, dry the window completely. Make sure you leave no paper or fabric on the surface as this could affect the look of the frosted glass once it dries. 2 Tape a border along the inside of your window frame. This border will be the area of the window you don't want frosted. Use blue painter's tape to create your border. Painter's tape is specifically designed to endure wet applications and has a weaker adhesive, allowing it to be easily removed once application is finished.[2] For windows with lattice work or muntin bars (strips of wood between the glass), you will need to cover it with tape as well. If the 1-in. painter's tape width isn't a thick enough border, lay another piece alongside it. Use a tape measure to ensure that all borders are symmetrical to each other; having uneven borders will result in an awkward-looking final product If your window does not have a frame, simply tape along the outside edges until you have created a border. 3 Cover the interior walls of the work area with masking paper or plastic sheeting. Cut it with scissors and tape it using the painter's tape. Avoid leaving any openings or gaps where the spray may enter. When working indoors, open doors and windows and turn on fans to help circulate the air. Consider wearing a particle mask to protect your nose and mouth. The spray fumes aren't just pungent, they can be hazardous to your health.[3] Take the window outside if you can. This will ensure a well-ventilated work space and will decrease the likelihood of "overspray," or frosting drifting onto other objects in the work area. 4 Shake your frosting spray can for the suggested length. The proper length can be found on the back label, but is usually 1-2 minutes. Frosting spray cans can be found in most craft and home improvement stores. As you shake the can, you should hear the small ball inside begin to rattle. Test by spraying on a small piece of cardboard.[4] If the can sprays correctly, prepare to frost your glass. If it is still not spraying at a steady rate, continue shaking and testing in 1 minute intervals. 5 Spray the window using large, back and forth motions to cover the surface.Hold the frosting can at least 12 inches (30.5 cm) from from the window's surface to avoid splotches and runs in the paint. Apply a light coating at first. It is easier to go back and add a second or third layer to even out the frosting, but it is difficult to remove gloppy or runny patches. Expect it to take between 5-10 minutes of spraying for the frosting to appear on the glass.

Method 1 of 3: Applying Nail Polish 1 Find extremely sharp fabric scissors. The sharper the scissors, the better the edge of the ribbon will be. 2 Measure the length of your ribbon. Snip the edge at a 45-degree angle, or cut it in an inverted “v” shape to discourage fraying. 3 Purchase clear nail polish. Use a good quality, trusted brand that you know encourages long wear. 4 Dip the nail polish brush into the nail polish. Wipe the brush on the top of the bottle to remove excess polish. 5 Apply a thin layer to the edges of the ribbon. You can either hold the ribbon in your hand and paint it at the very edge or lay it flat and paint one side, and then flip it and paint the other side. 6

How to Make a Book Style eReader Cover

How to Make a Book Style eReader Cover Own an eReader? Miss the feeling of a holding a book? Read on to learn how make a cover for your eReader that will mimic the texture and comfort of a book. This is a fun way to have several covers if you're an accessory fan, or you can make covers to give as personalized gifts. Steps 1 Find a book that is a little thicker than your eReader and about an inch (2.5cm) larger in length and height. It can be large in length and height, but will need to be cut to size.

While there is a wide range of kawaii food possibilities, this article is a starter to help you think of ways to make your own kawaii food creations. Steps 1 Always think "cute". The food designs should be cute and appealing to the eye, as well as the accompanying serving dishes. Ways to help achieve this include: Using small shapes and small portions. Using cute colors. Pastels or very bright colors can be cute when properly matched. Using faces and happy expressions. Keeping the designs "fun". Fun motifs help to make the food "cute"; think such fun things as monsters with smiles, winking hearts, baby creatures with huge eyes, grinning hamsters, etc., as designs. Match the designs for size. While keeping everything small, evenly matched sizing can help create an overall cuteness. 2 Use animal designs. Animal shapes are ideal kawaii food candidates as they're easy to replicate using food pieces, with many different forms.

There are many varieties of the onion—white, yellow, red and green globes. They also differ in size, color and taste.

How to Eat Passionfruit

How to Eat Passionfruit Three Parts:Picking the Perfect Passion FruitWashing and Cutting the Passion FruitIdeas for What to Do with Passion Fruit Passion fruit may be one of the most delicious fruits on the face of the planet. What makes them even cooler is that they come in their own little pods that you can take with you on a hike, to work, or just to carry around the house until you feel like eating a snack (just make sure you have a knife of some sort on hand.) Follow these steps to learn how to pick, prepare, and feast on passion fruit. Part 1 of 3: Picking the Perfect Passion Fruit 1 Consider the texture of the passion fruit's skin. You want to pick ones that are slightly wrinkled and a deep purple color--these are the ones that have ripened the most and will be the sweetest. It is good to remember that while you may want to buy clean passion fruits, it really doesn’t matter as you only eat the flesh (or inside) of the fruit. The softer the shell, the more ripe the fruit will be. 2 Shake the passion fruit. You should grab a passion fruit and shake it. If you feel a lot of liquid or pressure in there, that means there are a lot of seeds and liquid (meaning a lot of deliciousness to eat.) Compare them with the others to see which one has the most flesh.[2] 3 Smell the passion fruit. You can also determine the flavor if you smell the fruit. If you can smell a lot of tropical aromas then it will taste good. If you can't smell anything, it'll probably either be too sour and or tasteless.

Pakistan set to end six-year drought

Pakistan set to end six-year drought     Big picture   It's cricket, but it's much, much more. This series will be less about what happens between bat and ball and more about what happens beyond the boundary, or more precisely, what does not happen. Security threats have meant that no Test-playing team has visited Pakistan since the 2009 attack on the Sri Lankan team bus and no Test-playing team would have if not for Zimbabwe, although they won't be playing any Tests. Against the advice of the international player association, FICA, and their own country's foreign affairs ministry, Zimbabwe have done much more than hold out an olive branch to Pakistan; they're planting a forest. Their 10-day, two T20 and three ODI tour could cultivate the comeback of international cricket to a country most teams are too scared to travel to. At least, that is what both the Pakistan Cricket Board and Zimbabwe Cricket hope. In many ways, the PCB and ZC are perfect for each other because each has what the other wants. The PCB wants to host cricket for its team, ZC wants its team to play more cricket, and that is what brought the two together. The actual cricket could be a periphery to those desires but it will be important for both nonetheless. Pakistan will be before their home fans once again and that alone will be motivation enough to turn things around from their recent tour of Bangladesh, where they were blanked in the limited-overs matches. They will be smarting after that, desperate to show they have not sunk to a new low, and there will be no better place to do that than in front of their own fans. Passionate supporters have already caught the Zimbabwean players' eyes with many of them sharing on social media their excitement to be received so warmly but they will know those eyes do not want to see Pakistan defeated. And those eyes won't be expecting anything like that. Zimbabwe are historically poor travelers and lost every match on their most recent away trip to Bangladesh. They have not played any cricket since the World Cup but are hopeful of a(nother) new beginning under Dav Whatmore. They have a packed winter schedule and will hope to get off to a good start in Pakistan.       There has been no international cricket for 2271 days in Pakistan

How to Replace Damaged Roof Shingles

How to Replace Damaged Roof Shingles Two Parts:Removing Damaged ShinglesReplacing Shingles Damaged shingles can seriously cut into the life of a roof. To keep your house secure, it's important to regularly evaluate and replace damaged shingles to make sure your home is safe and dry. You can learn to properly evaluate, remove, and replace damaged shingles efficiently. Part 1 of 2: Removing Damaged Shingles 1 Use the proper safety precautions. Any time you're getting up on the roof you need to practice roof safety. Wear protective eyewear, heavy-duty gloves, and gripping boots appropriate for walking on the roof. Preferably, you'll also install roof jacks to have something to stand on, and harnesses to protect yourself. Never do roof work alone. How you access the roof will depend upon the roof itself and the location of the damage. Always use a secure, sturdy ladder when you're climbing up on the roof, and have a helper to secure it at the base. When walking on the roof, always walk slowly and secure your footing before taking another step. If you're just trying to assess the damage and replace a few damaged shingles, it might seem like overkill to install roof jacks and harnesses, but depending on the complexity and the height of your roof, it might be the safest option. Roof work isn't something to rush. 2 Assess the damage. Find the damaged area of shingles and determine how many new shingles you'll need and the extent of the damage underneath. Look at the corners on the shingles surrounding the damage. Are they curled and pulled up from the roof? Check the damaged area for damage to the moisture barrier or flashing, and check the damaged area for signs of seepage. If the surrounding shingles aren't doing the work of keeping moisture out, you'll need to replace everything in the square around the damaged area.[1] In some cases, it might be better to remove all the shingles from a roof in urgent need of repairs and re-roof the house instead. If the shingles in the area surrounding the damage are old, brittle, and dry, it’s probably not worth taking the care to re-secure them to the roof. Cracked or split shingles may be repaired without removing them, provided they're still in good condition. You can learn more about securing the shingles in the following section. 3 Remove shingles in cool weather. Asphalt and asphalt sealant will heat up in hot weather, making it moldable and much more difficult to remove. It's a lot easier to remove shingles that are cooled down and slightly more brittle than the moldable, so do the work of removing them first thing in the morning, before the sun has beaten down upon them considerably. Wet shingles to cool them down before removal, if you must work in the heat. Wetting them down with a small amount of water will

Build an Outdoor Garden Water Fountain

Build an Outdoor Garden Water Fountain Three Methods:Planning Your Water FountainPreparing Your Fountain PartsBuilding Your Fountain A water fountain can add a beautiful touch to any garden. It can introduce movement in your garden, and can heighten its sense of tranquility. Having a water fountain also means you can introduce aquatic plants into your garden, or bright splashes of color if you choose to put fish in your fountain. To build a fountain, you will first have to plan it out and familiarize yourself with some tools. Method 1 of 3: Planning Your Water Fountain 1 Consider the area where you are going to put your fountain. Take into consideration the area’s size. The size of the area you plan to put it in will determine how large a fountain you can build. Think about whether the area is conducive to handling leaks that your fountain may have. Will you be able to access the fountain easily in the area that you are planning on putting it? Ad 2 Remember that fountains can be very heavy. Once you install your fountain, it will be very hard to move, or even shift it slightly. If you are planning on putting your fountain on a balcony, deck, or in a rooftop garden, keep in mind the weight of the fountain. Make sure that the surface you are planning to put the fountain on can bear its weight. 3 Figure out how you are going to power the fountain. You will have to determine where you will run the line that will bring power to your fountain’s pump. Another option is to install a solar-powered fountain. Solar powered fountains are easier to install and are environmentally friendly, but you have to work in a sunny area for the solar powers to efficiently power the fountain. 4

How to Split Gnarly Firewood

How to Split Gnarly Firewood Gnarly, knotty, crooked-grained hardwood can be difficult to split for firewood, but there are occasions when it either must be split, or left to waste and rot. If you have a strong back and the right tools, most wood can be split. Steps 1 Get out your tools. For normal wood splitting, an axe might be all you need, but for gnarly wood, if you don't have access to a hydraulic log splitter, you will need the following: Axe Maul (AKA: splitting maul, busting maul, etc) Sledgehammer Steel wedge (preferably more than one) 2 Cut your wood to the shortest usable length. Because the crooked, irregular grain, (and likely knots) will make the splitting job more difficult, start out with the shortest cut you can use. 3 Cut a large, flat section of log for a splitting block, to place the segments you are splitting on. This will save a lot of bending over, and make the use of the Sledgehammer and maul much easier. 4 Look for checks (splits which occur as wood dries) in either end of the block you are splitting. These indicate weak grains, which may be easier to begin a split in.

Craft stores and dollar stores carry all the supplies you need to make these colorful creations. Read on to learn how to make foam calla lilies, violets and mums. Method 1 of 3: Calla Lily 1 Cut a circle out of a sheet of foam. This will become the calla lily bloom. The circumference of the circle can be as small or as large as you want. 2 Fold the circle in half. Make sure it's folded neatly, so that the shape of the calla lily will turn out right. 3 Alter the circle to create a rounded heart shape. Start by placing the scissors at the bottom point of the folded foam. Cut along the edge of the circle, then dip the scissors in at the top of the circle to make a rounded edge. when you unfold the circle, it should look like a rounded heart, with two subtle humps at the top; the bottom of the heart should remain rounded. The classic heart shape has a sharply pointed bottom tip, but in this case you want to keep the bottom rounded with a slight point. Don't make the humps at the top too pronounced; they should be subtle. 4 Make a small slit between the humps. This will make it easier to form the foam into the cylindrical shape of a calla lily bloom. 5

How to Attract Birds

How to Attract Birds Three Methods:Providing FoodCreating Nesting SpotsMaking Your Yard More Inviting Songbirds' natural habitats are dwindling, and you can help by making your backyard a safe haven for all of your favorite birds. When you provide birdseed, set out a birdbath and create nesting spots, your yard becomes much more inviting, and you'll be amazed at how many different species you can attract. Method 1 of 3: Providing Food 1 Research birds in your area. Find out what types of birds live in your area or migrate there and are likely to come to your property. You may want to obtain a field guide to the area so you know which birds you want to try to attract. Bear in mind that you'll be attracting different species depending on the season. It's difficult to attract just one type of bird, so aim instead to create an atmosphere that's healthy for many different species. For example, you might love cardinals and decide to put out seed they're known to love, but it's likely to bring in an array of birds. There may also be some species you don't want to attract, such as the common sparrow, pigeon or crow. While it's difficult to ensure they won't come around, you can choose certain types of seed that don't attract them as much as songbirds. 2 Choose a bird feeder. The type of feeder you choose will influence what bird species you attract. No matter what, your bird feeder should have a few essential qualities: it should be difficult for squirrels to access, it should keep the food dry, and it should be easy to clean. Bird feeders need to be washed out regularly so the food inside doesn't begin to harbor fungus and disease. Here are the most common types of feeders: Tray feeders are simple, flat trays that allow birds very easy access to seed. The downside is that the seed is also accessible to squirrels, and unprotected from the weather. House feeders keep seed in a contained area and dispense it as the birds feed from a small tray at the bottom of the feeder. Window feeders attach to your window with suction cups, offering a full view of bird activity. Suet feeders are designed to offer suet cakes, which attract different birds than seed feeders do. Hummingbird feeders dispense sugar water through a tube. 3 Provide seed and other food. Do you know what species you're hoping to attract? If you'd like to invite an entire range of native species, it's a good idea to have more than one type of feeder and offer a variety of foods. Here are the best foods to feed birds: Sunflower seeds are popular among all seed-eating birds, so they're a good choice if you want a wide variety of species. However, the shells must be raked up frequently, and sunflower seeds are also attractive to squirrels. White proso millet is a tasty treat for cardinals, quail, sparrows, doves, and crows. It's also attractive to house sparrows and other animals. Safflower seeds are good for attracting cardinals, chickadees, doves, sparrows, and grosbeaks. Corn is a favorite among nearly all birds, but it's important to use only as much as can be eaten in a day or two, since it attracts all sorts of animals. It's also important to be careful about the source of the corn, since cheap corn is often contaminated with pesticides that are poisonous to birds. Don't feed birds corn from a plastic bag or corn that has been dyed red. Peanuts are also very popular, but easily contaminated if they're left out for too long. Suet, the fat around cow and sheep organs, attracts woodpeckers, nuthatches, wrens jays and starlings. Peanut butter is a good food to provide in the winter, since it's highly nutritious. Make sure it doesn't contain additives.

Make a Necklace Holder from a Wooden Hanger

Make a Necklace Holder from a Wooden Hanger Design a jewelry hanger using a wooden hanger, a few hook screws and a small screwdriver. Customize your hanger by either removing its base or keeping it intact, depending on the number of necklaces or scarves you need to hang. Steps 1 Examine the jewelry you plan to hang. Before you can transform the hanger into something that can hold jewelry you will need to know how many pieces you plan to hang. The number will allow you to space the hook screws evenly and help you decide if you should remove the bottom of the wooden hanger. 2 Measure the hanger and determine how closely the hook screws should be spaced. If you have a large number of necklaces that must be hung consider either adding another hanger or spacing the hooks close together. However, don’t place the hooks too closely together as necklaces could become entangled.

Make a Motorcycle Diaper Cake Four Parts:Selecting the Goodies to Form the Motorcycle Diaper CakeCreating Motorcycle TiresAdding the BlanketsAdding the Remaining Elements Be the hit of your next baby shower and design a crafty motorcycle diaper cake for the mother-to-be. Ideal for a motorcycle enthusiast or just for someone who likes cute things, this craft doesn’t require a lot of crafty skills, just enough supplies and a little time. Part 1 of 4: Selecting the Goodies to Form the Motorcycle Diaper Cake 1 Purchase the colors and styles of the required items that you think the expectant mom would like. The following list explains exactly what is needed (also see Things You'll Need below for the crafting items): At least 34 diapers (newborn or early stage) 2 receiving blankets 2 bibs, a chain linked toy (appropriate for a newborn or infant) 1 pair of infant socks 1 baby bottle 1 washcloth 1 plush stuffed toy (that does not contain buttons or any items that could pose a choking hazard). Part 2 of 4: Creating Motorcycle Tires The swirls you're about to create form the motorcycle tires. 1 Line the cake pan with folded diapers. Start by lining one side and stacking the diapers on their side so they sit upright, but placed horizontally. As you build up one wall side, migrate to the other side of the pan and build up that area. 2 Continue lining the sides of the pan with folded diapers. Keep creating the swirl shape. 3 Contain the diapers in the pan. Wrap one of the rubber bands or soft elastic loops around the perimeter of the diapers. 4 Lift the diaper "tire" from the pan and carefully place on a hard surface. You may want to ask a friend to help with this because if a single diaper slips from the band, you’ll have to start the process all over again!

How to Frame a Puzzle

How to Frame a Puzzle Two Methods:Framing a Puzzle with GlueDisplaying a Puzzle without Glue Sometimes, a completed puzzle is too beautiful to dismantle, or the idea is too disheartening after all the hard work that's gone into it. Unless you purchase a special jigsaw puzzle frame, which is often more expensive than the puzzle, framing the puzzle will require gluing it together permanently. Method 1 of 2: Framing a Puzzle with Glue 1 Use this method to create a permanent decoration for personal enjoyment. If you aren't interested in disassembling the puzzle at any point, you can use a specialized glue to permanently attach the pieces together. This can create a glossier, sturdier piece of artwork, but may reduce the value of your puzzle. Because of this, this method is not recommended for antique or valuable puzzles, and some puzzle hobbyists do not use it at all. 2 Find a frame that fits your puzzle. Because your assembled jigsaw puzzle may have slightly different dimensions than listed on the box, use a ruler or tape measure to get an accurate measurement before selecting a frame. Some craft shops sell frames in pieces, which you can reassemble into rectangular frames with a custom length/width combination.[1] 3 Cut a backing material to fit the frame. Select poster board, foam board, or sturdy cardboard approximately 1/4 inch (6 mm) thick, and cut a rectangle that can be inserted into your frame.This material will provide a backing for the puzzle, keeping it flat and in the frame. A utility knife is recommended to make even cuts, along with a T-square or protractor to ensure the sides are cut to at 90º angle. Avoid using thin cardboard or other easily bent material, as this may cause the puzzle to warp over time. 4 Slide a layer of wax paper under the puzzle. Protect the surface underneath the puzzle by carefully slipping something flat and disposable, such as wax paper, underneath the puzzle. 5 Use a rolling pin to flatten the puzzle. Small bumps and loose pieces can be evened out before gluing with a rolling pin.[2] Press down on the rolling pin as you move it across the puzzle surface several times. 6 Brush puzzle glue over the surface of the puzzle. Purchase specialized jigsaw puzzle glue from a craft store or online. Use a paintbrush to apply this glue across the surface of the puzzle, covering the entire area with a thin layer. Pay special attention to the cracks between pieces.

What’s The Best Digital Camera For Study Abroad? The Study Abroad Blog’s picks for the best digital camera for study abroad You might remember from my post aboutmistakes I made while studying abroad that one of my biggest mistakes was buying the wrong camera. I got a cheap camera that took cheap photos, and while I took plenty of great photos during my time abroad, I can only imagine how many more there could’ve been if my camera had more functionality. So no one else makes the same mistake, I decided to do all the research and read all the reviews to find the best digital camera for study abroad and this is what I discovered.  1. Nikon D3100 14.2MP Digital SLR Camera – My Favorite The Nikon D3100, is Nikon’s latest and greatest entry-level offering and its first DSLR that can record full 1080p HD videos. An upgraded version of the popular D3000, it’s built around a 14.2 CMOS sensor (as opposed to the original 10) and a 3 inch LCD viewing screen. In addition to full 1080p movies, it features a high-resolution 14-megapixel CMOS DX sensor, high-quality 3x NIKKOR 18-55mm VR image stabilization zoom lens, and Scene Recognition System which automatically optimizes exposure, autofocus, and white balance. One of the best features, though, has to be the Easy-To-Use Nikon Guide Mode with intuitive controls and on-board assistance. Great for people like me who aren’t yet that into photography, but want to stop taking bad point-and-shoot photos. From someone who’s personally used it, the D3100 is above all other entry-level DSLRs.   2. Canon EOS Rebel T3i 18MP Digital SLR Camera

12 Months, 21 Days, and Another Year

12 Months, 21 Days, and Another Year “Are you sure you want to do this?” was the only utterance, phrased as a question, my mother could evoke moments after I informed her I was moving to Costa Rica. On that day, in the spring of 2010, I assured her that I would only be gone for six months with the rationale of finding myself, escaping winter, and fulfilling study abroad experiences that had up until then eluded me. Almost four years later, I returned to Canada for good. The ice storm was a nice welcome back, three days after arrival. 375 days ago I arrived in Toronto, severely hung-over and sunburnt, without a plan or idea of what the future might entail. Iwrote at the time that coming back to Canada was as much a move abroad as leaving was, and the parallels, over a year later, have proven that to be true. I arrived in both places unemployed, but managed to find teaching jobs soon after arrival, with Inlingua and ILAC, respectively; cultural adaptation and networking proved to be essential on both ventures, almost moreso in Toronto, where the job market is fierce and time away leads to a more idealistic paradigm portrayal, rather than realistic; and, perhaps most fascinating, after one year’s time in both places I wanted to stay longer. I think I told my family on three separate occasions that I was moving back to Canada without following through on it. In year two and three it had to do with promotions at work and career progression, but after year one it was purely about personal growth; I hadn’t done all I needed to do in Costa Rica, and needed much more time to

Geophysics

Geophysics From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Age of the sea floor. Much of the dating information comes from magnetic anomalies. Geophysics /dʒiːoʊfɪzɪks/ is a subject of natural science concerned with the physical processes and physical properties of the Earthand its surrounding space environment, and the use of quantitative methods for their analysis. The term geophysics sometimes refers only to the geological applications: Earth's shape; its gravitational and magnetic fields; its internal structure and composition; itsdynamics and their surface expression in plate tectonics, the generation of magmas,volcanism and rock formation.[1] However, modern geophysics organizations use a broader definition that includes the hydrological cycle including snow and ice; fluid dynamics of the oceans and the atmosphere; electricity and magnetism in the ionosphere and magnetosphere and solar-terrestrial relations; and analogous problems associated with the Moon and other planets.[1][2][3] Although geophysics was only recognized as a separate discipline in the 19th century, its origins go back to ancient times. The first magnetic compasses were made from lodestones, while more modern magnetic compasses played an important role in the history of navigation. The first seismic instrument was built in 132 BC. Isaac Newton applied his theory of mechanics to the tides and the precession of the equinox; and instruments were developed to measure the Earth's shape, density and gravity field, as well as the components of the water cycle. In the 20th century, geophysical methods were developed for remote exploration of the solid Earth and the ocean, and geophysics played an essential role in the development of the theory of plate tectonics. Geophysics is applied to societal needs, such as mineral resources, mitigation of natural hazards andenvironmental protection.[2] Geophysical survey data are used to analyze potential petroleum reservoirs and mineral deposits, locate groundwater, find archaeological relics, determine the thickness of glaciers and soils, and assess sites for environmental remediation.

How to Make a Recycled Bottle Broom Three Methods:PreparationCutting the Soda BottlesAssembling the Broom Need an extra prop for a costume or trying to decorate for a Halloween or costume party?

How to Make a Plaster Mask

How to Make a Plaster Mask Three Parts:Preparing the Work Space and SubjectConstructing the MaskFinishing the Mask Whether you're headed for a masquerade party, making a costume for a play, or preparing fortrick-or-treating, a plaster mask is an inexpensive costume option with tons of potential. Make a plaster mask with your kids or use the techniques to create intricate works of art. This article describes the basic process of creating full or half mask. Part 1 of 3: Preparing the Work Space and Subject 1 Prepare your work area. Choose a room where you have a lot of space to spread out, since working with plaster can get messy. Lay newspapers or a drop cloth on the floor. Have paper towels handy in case a stray drip lands outside the covered area. Ad 2 Prepare your supplies. Cut bandage plaster into strips. You will need enough strips to make three layers of plaster over the face. The strips should be about 2-3 inches wide by 3 inches (5-7.5 cm x 7.5 cm) long. Make some strips longer, shorter, wider or thinner. You'll need strips to cover all areas of the face. Place the strips in a bowl. Set out a second bowl filled with warm water that you will use to wet the strips. 3 Prepare your subject. The person whose face you are using to mold the mask should wear clothing that he or she doesn't mind getting wet with drips of plaster. Decide how much of the subject's face you plan to cover. It's best to have a conversation with your subject about his or her comfort level. If you wish to cover the entire face, make sure the nostril area is left clear so that the subject can breathe freely. The process is easiest if the subject lies on the floor, but if he or she prefers to sit in a chair, wrap towels around his or her neck and shoulders. Ask your subject to tie back his or her hair, and to pin bangs away from the face. Ad Part 2 of 3: Constructing the Mask

How to Make a Travel Size Craft Kit Do you hate to sit still? Do meetings, long flights, or commutes get on your nerves? Here's a quick way to bust that boredom and stay sane. Use those tedious times to make some small craft item by packing your purse with something that can keep your hands busy. Steps 1 Choose crafts you like that require minimal tools and supplies. Things likeBraiding, Macrame, Origami, German Ribbon Stars, small Sewing Projects andRibbon Bookmarks are perfect for this sort of craft kit. 2 Decide where you will carry your crafts. If you regularly carry a backpack or you can leave items in your car, you have more options than if you are carrying a tiny purse or have only the space in a pocket. 3 Consider the volume of supplies needed. You can't exactly take along an entireafghan, but you may be able to take along just enough for a few squares at a time. 4 Collect the supplies for the craft you chose. For example: A small pincushion would require only fabric, a pinch of stuffing, a needle and a spool of matching thread. A star ornament requires only the knowledge of three folds and a spool of gift ribbon.
