Method of Using HCG drops

by Charles Graham - January 9th, 2015

I oft-quoted that intake of HCG is easy and consists of two methods so it’s up to you whether you want to heal yourself through drops or through shots frequently known as the infusion by injection .If you want to reduce weight by first method then you have to give a full detail and the dream weight you always wanted to gain to the dietician who will then plan your diet according your present weight .You have to be very punctual throughout the session which will start from one and last to twenty three days demanding intake of three drops daily .But if you are following the second method then again there should be no gap during the twenty three days session comprising of one injection having 125 IU of the artificial hormone. The thing with which you should be very careful and regarding which there is no space for any mishap is the time of medicinal intake. So be regular and within days you will see difference in yourself.

With the time the things you eat during the consecutive twenty three days of the treatment session are also very much important because during that phase your metabolic system is continuously in struggle .So be careful all the time. You are not allowed to eat those foods which produce bulk in body, in simple way be a pure vegetarian in those days and be very precise and conscious for your diet. Dr. Simeons experience shows that 1.5 lbs of body weight can be reduced in day through HCG and also by cutting short the amount of caloric foods. Cutting short means reducing or limiting the amount of caloric foods not quitting them .You can still eat foods like pulses and fish meat and fruits and vegetables which are the rich source of vitamins and minerals. Eat them daily with your routine meal.

Consumption of HCG drops is workable but very few have completed this method of weight loss because during this process only five hundred calories are recommended to be taken throughout the day which result in 0.5 to 3.5 lbs weight loss in day but five hundred calories do not fulfill the demand of body for nutrients which are essential for the healthy and strong body parts .With the help of a survey we have come to know that they are not satisfied with this method .According to them the reduced amount of caloric items makes a person tired and that person will not be able to do power consuming tasks .And in front of anything tasty they are not be able to control themselves which results in an increase instead of loss in weight.

There are plenty of reasons why HCG drops are the right diet drops for you, Click here and get more details.

Motivate Someone Today

by Sue Reilly - January 6th, 2015

Motivational speakers have been playing vital roles in companies and businesses when it comes to inspiring and uniting their employees to achieve their visions and goals. They have a special skill that allows them to motivate people to be better and to aim for excellence. Some speakers are born with the gift to inspire and persuade a person to strive. Others are trained to acquire these skills and continue to hone them through time.

If one day a person wakes up and finds himself wanting to become a motivational speaker and encourage people to be better versions of themselves, then, he can definitely go out there and speak out. But, will he be effective? Will he be able to achieve his goals? Will he be able to touch the lives of his audience? He might be if he has the gift. But if not, what to do then?

motivational speaker

Even the best needed help sometimes. They didn’t become the best in their respective fields overnight. They studied, they practiced, they got feedback and accepted them gracefully, they worked on their areas of opportunities and they practiced some more. Get help. Look for classes or workshops that offer courses and training for public/motivational speaking. Be surrounded by the right people. Join internationally-acclaimed speaking organizations like Toastmasters or The National Speakers Association. Being with this crowd will give one a feel if this path is for him or not. And if it is, below are pointers on how to become an effective motivational speaker:

Prep time

Study the topic for the talk. Most of the time, a motivational speaker will be given topics that he is not very familiar with. For someone to be able to deliver an effective message, he must become a subject matter expert on the topic. This can only be achieved by one way –by studying. This is like old school, college research. One gathers data, studies them and interprets them. Once the basic information is obtained, that will be the only time that one will be able to put his own spin on it. It is very difficult to call a bluff and pretend to know a topic. At one point, someone will eventually figure it out. And when that happens, bye bye credibility.

Research who the audience will be. Knowing who they are and what makes them tick is the best ammunition any speaker can have.
It would also be helpful to write down the talk. Most effective speakers are also good writers. Plus, it won’t hurt to have something handy if forgetfulness attacks in the middle of the talk.

Showtime!

Don’t be boring. Some speakers are guilty of this. Yes, they have a lot to tell. However, they forgot that the people they are talking to are not sponges. They can’t absorb everything. Attention span can only last for about ten minutes or so thus, it is important to be informative but at the same time, entertaining. Customize and tailor-fit the talk. Make it relevant. An effective motivational speaker should be able to speak to his audience on a personal level while at the same time, promoting the common goal that he wants them, as a group to achieve. It is a unique talent and not many can master this.

Physical appearance and props are also vital during the talk. A good suit and a smile on the face will be a good start. These imply a look that is dignified but amiable and approachable. For props, think of video presentations, or actual dramatizations or power point presentations. Beware however of the “death by bullets.” Don’t kill the audience with bullets upon bullets of information that they won’t remember anyway after the talk. Instead, encourage audience participation and interaction. Make them talk, make them walk and if you can, make them dance. Let them be part of the talk and not just as observers. Let them know beforehand what they will be getting into and how long they will in that venue.

The after party

Sell it. Give handouts after the talk. Make them attractive and at the same time, informative. These will not only benefit the person who attended the talk. He or she will also become a walking advertisement, carrying that wonderfully edited and detailed hand out.

Record it, review it. What better way to assess areas of improvement than by looking at one’s self from a different perspective? It’s always different seeing one’s self in TV.

Get feedback. Audience feedback is the best source of validation if one’s talk is effective or not. Hand out short survey questionnaires after the talk. It doesn’t have to be lengthy. It just needs to be concise and specific and direct to the point. Consolidate the feedback and review them. Accept a compliment gracefully and take any criticism creatively.

Challenge Coins Outside the Military—and How to Find Them

by Derek Swanson - January 5th, 2015

Military challenge coins are so prevalent nowadays, yet if we stop and think about it, they’re actually quite a mystery. Yes, there are many hugely varying histories detailing the origin of the challenge coin—so many, in fact, that it’s become difficult to separate the cold facts from the myths. It would seem, though, that even that quality has added to the challenge coin’s appeal to folk outside the military.

Challenge coins have such a heroic aura surrounding them, it comes as no wonder that the manliest of men and the most valiant of women have succumbed to their pull. Police departments, fire brigades, fraternities, and other such organizations have long since incorporated challenge coinsinto their culture, and Harley Davidson bikers are only one among many who’ve joined their ranks. On the geeky-cool side of the community, it is the Star Wars fans as usual who have gotten hold of the military challenge coin tradition first, but die-hard Game of Thrones devotees are right there behind them.

military coins

In the case of Game of Thrones, it is not at all surprising that the demand for customizedcoins have risen. After all, one of the characters have been bestowed a particularly striking coin along with the mysterious words “valar morghulis” (“all men must die”). Who could have resisted such gorgeous and ready-made material for a special personal token?

Like the Star Wars and Game of Thrones aficionados, anyone could request a coin of their choice or design to be made simply by finding the right dealers online. If you already have a design in mind, all you’d have to do is forward it to the company and the people on the other end would do the rest. It won’t be a problem too if you need some help with the design. Most manufacturers have a designer ready to assist with the creation of the coin, and some even offer unlimited requests for revision so that you won’t have to end up with challenge coins that you’re not happy with.

The ideal base material for coin makers is brass, but there are also other metals available depending on your taste. You could have the metal of your choice plain, or you could have it plated with silver or gold. Plating would cost you more, of course, but it would make the end product extra special.

During the designing process, you could have a blast choosing everything from the shape of the coin down to its enamel finish. Did you know you could have the shapes customized? Depending on the manufacturer, you could request for a coin shaped like a clover leaf, skull, spade, heart, and many others. The finer details are up to you too, and there are quite a few important decisions to be made, for instance, the edging of your coin—the type of edge could either make or break the whole look of your coin.

If you want to swerve further away from tradition, you could take advantage of the modern custom challenge coin’s features like the aforementioned specialty edging, numbering, inserting photos under the enamel, or creating 3D images on the surfaces of the coin.

If, on the other hand, you want to keep close to how challenge coins are usually made, then opt for either die struck bronze (typically more expensive) or the much cheaper (but lacking in ideal quality) zinc alloy casting.

Other points – Members of organizations, no matter which type or denomination, want to be reminded not just of their group’s difference from the rest of the world but also of the members’ similarities that led them to each other in the first place. Pay close attention to these qualities and, as much as it can be attained, adapt them into the challenge coins you want minted. These would surely reinforce your exclusivity while also forging stronger bonds within.

What are Badge Lanyards?

by Edward Thompson - January 5th, 2015

Badge lanyards are looped cords that are worn around the neck and usually carry an item that should be visible at all times. Typically, these are used with IDs and are worn within a certain vicinity or area. They have an attachment at the bottom where a person’s ID can be placed and this attachment is secured to make sure that the ID itself will not get lost.

Lanyards have been in use within military ranks. Whistles are commonly used with a lanyard, but there are other times when they are used with a pistol or sword. Lanyards are also used to carry keys to important items and places and are only be given to those that will guard them.

Neck LanyardsNowadays, badge lanyards are commonly used to carry a person’s ID instead of a pin. This makes the ID more manageable and allows it to be more visible. The colours of a lanyard are also used to determine the department where a person is assigned to and it also helps in identifying the rank of the person. For instance, trainees may be asked to wear a yellow lanyard while regular employees may be requested to wear a black lanyard. Guests may be given a green lanyard to use.

Special events may either sell lanyards or give them away as a souvenir. Button pins and tags are sometimes included with it and the name of the event will be printed on it. Different attachments at the end of these badge lanyards will allow you to put any kind of item onto them. IDs, card keys, or a coin purse can be attached to them and they are also tough enough to hold a small electronic gadget.

There are different kinds of badge lanyards including:

•Polyester Lanyard –

This is the most common lanyard available. It usually comes in one colour and the logo that you want will be imprinted onto it. A silkscreen is used to imprint the design onto the lanyard and one colour may only be used, but the lanyard retailer may offer to add another colour at a certain cost.

•Woven Lanyard –

Polyester is also used to make this kind of lanyard. These are available in one colour, but unlike the imprinted polyester lanyard, the design on these will be woven into the lanyard itself. This ensures that the design on the lanyard will not fade and will last a long time. Since this kind of design is woven into the material, it is recommended that the design should be simple; intricate designs will not translate properly with this method.

•Nylon Lanyard –

If the event or the place where the lanyard will be used requires one with a shiny design, a nylon lanyard can be used. Nylon lanyards would have a shiny finish and are made to be durable. A silkscreen is used to apply the design on this kind of lanyard.

•Tubular Lanyard –

This also uses the same type of material as with a polyester lanyard, but it is woven in a different way. Tube-stitching is the method used to make this lanyard and it gives a soft feel when it is finished. The design that you want can be imprinted onto it using a silk screen method.

•Dye Sublimated Lanyard –

This is considered as the toughest among the lanyard types when it comes to the design. Instead of the normal silk screen process, the design and colour get printed onto the fabric itself; this will prevent the design from fading too fast. This also allows you to have two designs on one lanyard and you can have multiple colours with your design.

Storage Turned House

by Beth Woodard - January 2nd, 2015

A storage container is usually used for storing and transporting various items. These items may be as small as your little angel figurines at home to as big as your closets and beds. However, in the advent of making some big things from small things, a storage container does not only have to be purely for those two purposes; instead, they can now be turned into a nice little house!

The commencement of the use of these storage containers as dwelling places is not really known. No one can really tell when it started. But one thing is for sure, and that is, it is getting popular nowadays.

Storage containerA storage container is usually made up of durable metal. If you are wondering if this container is enough to protect you from the storm, then this would really be good news to you- storage containers are wind and waterproof! Those heavy rains will not be able to touch you inside the walls of your storage-turned-house. What is even better is that you can have it customized to suit your preference. Whether you want your house built in the woods or anywhere else, then that won’t be a problem. All you need to have is a piece of land.

So how can you actually convert your storage into a cozy little house?

1.Determine your purpose.

The first step in converting your storage container into a house is to determine what it is for. Is it for you and your small family, or is it for you visiting friends or relatives, or will it serve as a “multipurpose hall” where you can actually have some parties? Your answer will determine the type of furniture and decorations that you will need. Determining the purpose will also help you decide how to divide this one big storage into small rooms. Do you need a bathroom, a kitchen, a bedroom, etc.?

2.Check with your city building officers.

After deciding on what you want to do with your container, the next step is to go to your city building department and ask about what other things you need in setting up your house. They will also tell you which documents or permits to file for this purpose. Since the container will be turned into a house, the installation of electrical wires or water facilities within the unit is highly likely, and you may need someone to do this for you, for example, your electricians, technicians, or plumbers.

3.Clean the unit.

One of the most important things in converting this unit into a comfortable dwelling area is to make it clean. If your storage containers are as old as you are, then you might need to have it thoroughly cleaned and inspected for rusts, damage, holes, etc. You might need to contact cleaning companies to do the job because simple cleaning might not suffice.

4.Install wirings and water facilities.

Since you have already contacted your electricians, and you have already cleaned the unit, the next step is to install the necessities. Your unit would definitely need some electrical sockets and you need to have them installed before you put in your furniture. Water facilities in the bathroom and kitchen also need to be fixed. Connecting the bathroom drainage into a sewer must be considered, as well as the source of the water.

5.Furnish your little house.

This may or may not be the last step in converting your storage container into a house. In furnishing your unit, you must remember that you should not overly decorate it. You may just need to put in the basics- basic furniture, basic household items, and so on. Choosing a less bulky furniture is also recommended because this makes your house appear more spacious.

Some useful tips in caring for printed circuit boards

by Elsie Hamilton - January 1st, 2015

Printed circuit boards or PCBs are some of the most common things you can see in most consumer electric products. TVs, computers, radios, and even some toys contain these circuit boards. Not surprisingly, many electronic devices do not function well when printed circuit boards are faulty or defective. So how do we care for printed circuit boards? This article provides some of the steps:

1. Create a perfectly sealed enclosure – simply having an enclosure for the circuit boards won’t cut it. Make sure that the enclosure is durable and made from quality grade materials that are sure to prevent moisture and light debris from building up.

2. Learn more about conformal coating – conformal coating is a practice in the electronic industry where conformal coating material is applied to the circuit boards to ensure its protection against light debris like dust as well as moisture and extreme temperatures. This practice helps prevent damage to the boards which could cause it to malfunction. Coating can be done in various ways which includes, but is not limited to, brushing, spraying, and/or dipping. There are also machines which are specifically designed to perform the task of conformal coating.

Printed circuit boards3. If possible, avoid DC voltage gradients – it is a good practice to choose the lowest voltage possible and also consider the placement of the pins. Doing so will help avoid constant voltage gradient which can cause further corrosion for the circuit boards.

4. Avoid placing PCBs or their enclosures in an area with extreme environments – Consider the placement of the circuit boards. If possible, it is best to place it in a dry, place with the right room temperature.

5. Provide heat sinks and other ways to dissipate heat – After some time, boards and their respective devices will produce a considerable amount of heat and more often than not, it will be cause damage to the circuit boards. Heat sinks and other available cooling technology will help prevent heat from building up which can have a significant damage to the boards.

6. Make sure to practice proper handling of PCBs – Printed circuit boards are very sensitive to static electricity. Antistatic measures can be taken like storing or keeping them in bags which are designed to minimize static electricity. Wearing clothes suited to prohibit the build-up of static electricity will also help ensure the safety of the boards. It is also a good practice to remove materials which are known to generate static electricity. Commonly known materials that generate static electricity are Styrofoam and plastics. It also needs to be handled at the edges. Touching them by the components could also cause also lead to further damage.

7. Avoid stacking of PCBs – Stacking the boards against each other may cause considerable physical damage and should therefore be avoided.

8. Regular cleaning – like any other thing, dirty circuit boards can be overrun by dust and other dirt which could lead to other problems. For dust removal, an old toothbrush or any other fine-toothed material that can gently brush off the dust from the surface of the circuit boards can be used. Metal cleaners and polishers are also available in the market for the removal of some metal oxidation that forms around the electrical components attached to the circuit boards.

Always remember that PCBs are delicate materials which need proper care and regular maintenance for them to function well. Leaving these circuit boards unattended might be alright for the first few times but ultimately, they have to be checked and proper maintenance procedures should be applied to them to increase their shelf life and prolong their operational function.

Golf Iron Sets in Focus

by Mary Murphy - January 1st, 2015

Playing golf may be difficult and complicated at first since you need to know about a lot of equipment. The basic thing you need to know are golf clubs, of course. Basically, they are the tools used to strike golf balls. Typically, a set of golf clubs includes a set of woods, a hybrid, golf iron sets, and a putter. All in all, there should be 12 clubs. Other golfers have 14 clubs and this is the maximum number of clubs allowed in golf. Usually, these two add-ons consist of a specialty hybrid and a wedge.

Golf Iron SetsGolf iron sets in particular are made of metal and are extremely necessary for distances less than 200 yards from the green. The standard set has 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 irons and the pitching wedge. Basically, the closer you are to the green means the higher iron you should use and the higher the iron means the higher the degree of loft. Usually, the 3 and 4 irons are actually difficult to hit so most golfers are now considering switching to 7 and 9 woods with higher lofts. Beginners especially women, seniors, and golfers with high handicaps are starting to use this technique.

Golf iron sets are named differently as well. 1, 2, and 3 irons are called long irons and they have little loft. As a result, they may send the ball to a farther distance. Meanwhile, the 4, 5, and 6 irons are the middle irons. They are ideal to use of the ball is 150 to 170 yards from the green. Finally, the 7, 8, and 9 irons are called the short irons which could get the ball into the air quickly. Normally, golf iron sets contains irons 3 to 9 since 1 and 2 are quite complicated to master.

The appearances of irons are thin and their clubfaces are grooved. There are different types of irons too. Beginners and recreational ones may prefer cavity back or blade styles while experts may choose the muscleback style. The blade style has a full back on the rear of the clubhead while the cavity back is its exact opposite as it is hollowed out. Using the blade style allows perimeter weighing which could be very useful for starters.

The muscleback is more traditional consisting of a solid metal head. The design makes its metal distributed around the clubhead and as a result, this style has a smaller sweet spot. A golfer using this needs consistent swings for accurate and straight shots. If you are a novice using the muscleback, chances are you could miss your shots. On the other hand, the cavity back consists of an investment casting which allows durability and precision. Thus, there is a larger sweet spot for a golfer to hit since the clubhead’s weight is redistributed.

Buying irons may be a difficult task for a beginner but you could always seek the help of a professional or do your own research. Playing golf is a fun hobby and who knows? You might take it to the next level and play it as a pro. Just make sure that in purchasing your equipment, you choose what is best for you as not all equipment are the same. This is the reason why there are separate categories of products for men, women, and even lefties. Remember, having the correct golfing equipment will help you own your game.

If you are looking for golf iron sets, it is recommended that you limit your search to reputable dealers both offline and online. This ensures that the clubs you get are of good quality and will serve you well for years to come.

Customize ID Lanyards Easily by Knowing Their Parts

by Xena Wobbles - December 29th, 2014

Ordering ID lanyards today is easy as providers start to develop their websites with platforms used for customizing clients’ ID lace orders. Buyers can select from offered customization choices and other accessories before finalizing their purchases. However, customizing their orders may be challenging without knowing different lanyard parts like the following:

Neck Strap
ID lanyards

The strap is the main ID lace worn around the neck. This part can be made from different materials although the common material choice is nylon. Nylon threads are woven together to form the shoelace-like strap. Technology, however, gave way to using materials that meet users’ requirements (such as those regarding eco-friendliness). ID lace straps are available in flat, tubular and round shapes, but most clients choose the flat option because its surface makes printing texts easier.

Crimp Lock

Crimp locks are the metallic or plastic materials that tie the neck strap together. This prevents the badge holder from falling off once worn. Metallic crimps are often the standard options because people only choose them according to function. However, plastic options are now widely used in making ID lanyards since they serve as additional accessories for the badge holders.

Depending on the crimp lock design, it can hold company logos for branding and additional design.

Slider

A slider is a small item that slides up and down around the lace for adjustment. This can tighten the lanyard to fit the wearer properly. Sliders can be rounded or square attachments with a button-like part. Push the button to loosen its grip around the lace for sliding. Release the button and it will lock itself into place.

Breakaway

A breakaway is a common attachment on ID lanyards for easy removal. Its main purpose is to detach the lace in cases of emergency. Instead of taking the ID off their neck by letting them go through their head, users simply need to pull the breakaway apart and release the two strap ends for easy detaching.

Tail Attachment

Tail attachments refer to the accessories placed at end part of the ID lace. This attachment can be buckles, hooks or loops used for IDs or mobile phones. A tail attachment also helps in removing ID cards easier because of its easy-to-remove latch. This attachment can be made either removable or fixed on the lanyard depending on the buyers’ preference.

ID Clips

ID clips can be vinyl or plastic clips that hold the ID card. It can be attached to the crimp lock or the tail attachment. Apart from holding IDs, clips are also placed on ID lanyards to serve as additional design accessories. They are available in plain colors to complement different lanyard colors.

Badge Reels

Badge reels are retractable threads. The reel attaches to the main ID or clips. Users can pull their IDs and the reel will extend its threads for users to flash their badges easily, especially if the lanyard is too short. It will retract the thread back to the reel after the user is done flashing his ID.

Card Sleeve

Card sleeves serve as protective accessories for IDs and badges. They can be plastic sleeves enclosing ID cards for additional scratch and dirt protection. Sleeves can be made from thin vinyl plastic sheet. Other hard plastic frame-like sleeves are also available for additional protection. These choices provide extra protection from bending and damaging badges. Color options also come in varying types to complement the main lanyard design.

Knowing the parts of ID lanyards is crucial for ordering. This gives buyers an idea about which parts can be customized and how to improve their overall design upon visiting the provider’s website. Consider these attachments to get your preferred lanyard design.
