Real Dating Advice And Tips | Marijuana for MRSA

With marriages getting delayed due to career considerations and the ever increasing divorce rates, more and more older singles are finding themselves in the ?market? again. There is quite a ?healthy? number of boomer singles seeking partners today. However, this does not mean that dating is easy for this demographic.

A positive and upbeat attitude is a must when speed (or eight minute) dating. In fact, this could be considered the most important advice of all. Serious topics or anything remotely negative or downbeat can undermine your speed dating adventures. Rather than present yourself in such a way, look towards being more upbeat in your presentation. This will deliver far better results than the opposite approach would.

For instance, some women are looking for a spouse to settle down with and spend the rest of their lives, while other women are simply looking for a great time. The dating advice these two groups of women would be quite different, and it is important for those in search of dating advice for women to understand these kinds of differences.

People who are too busy to find their love interest use the internet to find one. Online dating sites had been a tool to find someone who would be a perfect match for you. A lot of dating sites on the web offers this service. It has helped many in finding their perfect match. But you have to be careful and cautious at the same time. Check online dating advice lists on these sites to be safe.

That means you need to discover a spouse that has things in common with you and shares your personality. Only that person will be capable to walk with you through life. That is Christian dating advice you will never hear in most cases.

Learn as much as you can about speed dating before you jump into the mix. Far too often, people will try to speed date without really knowing what it entails. This is what leads to common problems and errors in judgment that sink a meeting. Why put yourself through this? It would be much better speed dating advice to perform proper research and venture into your dating with the right attitude.

I used to get relationship advice from a good friend of mine. He presented himself as a real ladies man, but the reality was much different. He got a lot of dates with a lot of different girls it was true, but part of the reason was because none of them wanted to stay with him for more than a date or two. We thought he was such a stud at the time that we listened to his dating advice, but it was always terrible. All of his relationship tips inevitably failed. Sure, his dating advice could help us to find a date. He would help us get our relationship profile in order for online dating services, or practice that perfect pickup line. He would not, however, help us make our relationships last.

Today joining an online single dating service is easier than ever and it seems that everyone who is single and looking for a mate is a member of one online single dating service or another which means when you join you will be searching through hundreds of profiles with pretty faces.

Most advice for Christians on dating merely paints it as a horrible thing and that if you can not be apart then you ought not be united. To be honest this makes no sense at all. I hate to say it but I would throw most Christian dating books out the window.

You never know who you are missing in your life until you speak to them. Another one of the best dating tips for men is getting out and trying to meet women.

Samsung says Jelly Bean update coming to Galaxy S III and Note 10.1 'very soon'

Samsung says Jelly Bean update coming to Galaxy S III and Note 101 'very soon'

It's not as specific as we're guessing some would like, but Samsung confirmed during its IFA 2012 keynote today that a Jelly Bean update is coming to both the Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note 10.1 "very soon." That is at least a bit more encouraging than the "later this year" that we last heard for the Note 10.1, and follows a leak of an official GS3 Jelly Bean build earlier this month. The original Galaxy Note wasn't specifically mentioned on stage, but it did make an appearance on the company's Jelly Bean slide, so we'd assume an update for it is coming as well, if not necessarily "very soon."

Turkish military is key factor in Syria planning

ISTANBUL (AP) ? In 2003, Turkey barred U.S. forces from opening a northern front in the war against Iraq in a stunning rebuff to Washington that raised questions about whether the politically powerful Turkish military had undercut a civilian-led initiative to help the Americans. As Turkey and its allies mull possible intervention in Syria, the Turkish military, broken as a political force, is likely to move in step with the civilian commanders it once viewed with disdain.

Questions about the military of NATO member Turkey are critical to international debate about how to handle Syria, now locked in civil war, because any move by an allied coalition to impose a no-fly zone or a buffer zone to protect displaced Syrians from attack by regime forces would rely heavily on troops in Turkey, which shares a long border with Syria. Such intervention with a U.N. mandate does not appear imminent, but Turkey, which hosts about 80,000 Syrian refugees, says it is approaching the limit of its capacity to provide shelter on its side of the border.

Turkey is also concerned that Kurdish militants are taking advantage of the chaos in Syria to organize there, deepening a threat to national security for Turkish officials who blamed a deadly bombing near the Syrian border on Aug. 20 on the rebel Kurdistan Workers' Party, or PKK. In such a fragile context, the Turkish government and the military, which once sparred openly over the direction of the country, need each other and have forged a means of cohabitation ? with Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan as the boss ? amid the traditional mistrust.

"What's really exited the scene in terms of civilian-military relations is that sense of hostility," said Soner Cagaptay, a senior fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy. "That's really new."

He said the two sides listen to each other in a way that they did not before, and speculated that the military could be "putting mild breaks" on the government in terms of what may be militarily feasible if the moment for intervention comes. Turkey's decision to open its borders to refugees, while lauded on humanitarian grounds, has drawn some criticism from some opposition figures who say authorities can no longer thoroughly monitor whether militants are operating in the area.

Hundreds of active and retired military officers are in jail on charges of plotting to overthrow the democratically elected government, which is led by pious Muslims suspected by opponents of seeking to dilute secular ideals imposed by Turkey's national founder, former army officer Mustafa Kemal Ataturk. The arrests raised concerns about morale in the mostly conscript force as well as its effectiveness as a fighting force, but the new military commander, Gen. Necdet Ozel, is regarded as a cooperative professional untainted by alleged links to military coups over the decades.

The relationship was tense in 2003, when Turkey's parliament rejected a resolution that would have allowed American forces to invade Iraq from Turkish land in the campaign against dictator Saddam Hussein. Newly elected Erdogan had backed the resolution despite its unpopularity, while the military ? still a big factor in Turkish politics ? did not robustly support it, a factor that some analysts cited as contributing to its failure.

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton was in Istanbul earlier this month as part of efforts to coordinate Syria policy with Turkey, which supports the Syrian opposition and acts as a conduit for supplies to anti-Assad groups. Senior diplomatic, military and intelligence officials from both sides met last week to go over detailed operational plans for "the full range of contingencies," according to the U.S. State Department.

Turkey and its allies are averse to intervening in Syria because of fears it could ignite a wider conflict, though Turkish government rhetoric against Syria has been among the harshest, notably after the deaths of two Turkish pilots whose jet was shot down when Syria claimed the plane was violating its airspace. Turkey disputes Syria's claims, and the Turkish military continues its investigation.

In the wake of that incident, Cagaptay said, Turkey may have "slowed down its rhetorical response" at the urging of the U.S., "realizing that it could be left alone in a conflict situation against the Assad regime."

Henri Barkey, a Turkey analyst at Lehigh University in the United States, said the Turkish military "would not mind doing something heroically and therefore cleanse their image," but he noted that it is already burdened by a low-level war with Kurdish rebels who seek self-rule. That conflict has dragged on since the 1980s without a clear result, and there are questions about whether Turkey can handle the threat from Syrian forces armed with jets and tanks, even if they are overstretched with their fight against the Syrian insurgency.

Additionally, there is no public clamor in Turkey for intervention in Syria, and a general aversion to casualties, particularly when it comes to the idea of Turkish soldiers dying to protect Syrian civilians. Turkey, Barkey said, has yet to find a strong enough justification to go into Syria without the participation of a multilateral or U.N.-sanctioned force, and its military, stripped of political clout, is on board with that cautious perspective.

"They are now subservient to the civilians and there's a very funny way in which Erdogan is now emerging as a protector of the military," he said. In this new scenario, according to Barkey, the prime minister views the military "no longer as a potential opponent but rather a child in his ward."

Against the backdrop of worries over intervention in Syria, the Istanbul funeral this month for Ozkan Atesli, a Turkish soldier killed by alleged Kurdish rebels in an attack on a military vehicle, reflected the national sense of exhaustion and bitterness at the seemingly open-ended conflict that has afflicted Turkey for so long.

Egeman Bagis, a government minister, arrived at a mosque to pay his respects at the ceremony. According to video posted by the Hurriyet Daily News newspaper, a distraught woman interrupts: "We are in great pain. We feel like revolting."

"This is a place to pray, not to revolt," Bagis says. "Ozkan needs our prayers now."

Selective imprinting: How the wallaby controls growth of its young

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

Marsupial mothers regulate the composition of their milk so that it is optimal for the development stage of their young. New research published in BioMed Central's open access journal Epigenetics & Chromatin shows that, similar to the human placenta, which regulates embryonic growth and development, insulin appears to be imprinted in the marsupial mammary gland.

Insulin is well known as the hormone which regulates blood sugar levels but it also essential for proper functioning of the nervous system, protein synthesis, and for cell growth and survival. It is also required for lactation in mammals and, along with insulin growth factor 2 (IGF2), is present in milk.

Imprinting is a way of controlling gene expression. To ensure only one copy of a certain gene is active (monoallelic), the other copy is silenced, usually by methylation. Imprinting is established during sperm or egg production so that the developing embryo inherits paternally imprinted genes from its father, and maternally imprinted from its mother. Consequently the active copy is inherited only from either the mother or father. However this is complicated by imprinting being both tissue specific and dependent on the stage of development.

Insulin was thought to be only imprinted in the yolk sac of mice, and only in the wallaby yolk sac placenta, however, in marsupials much of this growth and development occurs after birth and is controlled instead by milk that changes composition throughout lactation. The University of Melbourne looked at whether the gene wallaby mammary gland is similarly imprinted, if it was also imprinted in the pouch young (joey), and whether this imprinting was maternally or paternally inherited.

The team found that insulin gene (INS) expression in the adult tammar wallaby mammary gland was monoallelic (one active copy), indicating imprinting and that this active copy came from the father. Paternally inherited monoallelic INS expression was also discovered in both the adult and the young tammar liver, but not in other tissues tested. IGF2 was also monoallelic in the mammary gland but the relative expression of INS and IGF2 differed during lactation. IGF2 expression in the mammary gland decreased after the first few days but INS expression increased as the babies became more mature especially between 5 and 14 weeks of age.

Prof Marilyn Renfree, who led this project commented, "This is the first indication that genomic imprinting occurs in the marsupial mammary gland and suggests that genomic imprinting in the mammary gland may be as critical for regulating post-natal growth as it is for regulating pre-natal growth in the placenta in all mammals."

Kids and Teens 'Walking' Tall ? FemGuide Women Network

Modern kids and teens are often not active enough. This has led to many kids and teens being overweight and unfit. Sadly, this is a fact. Happily, there are traditional activities making a comeback and they are encouraging kids and teens to get more active. One such traditional activity that is currently trending is stilts.

August 29, 2012 by Karen In Category Baby & Kids

Source: Getty Images

Ask grandparents if they know what pogo stilts are. Not only will they know but they will remember them with great fondness. There was a time when kids and teens weren?t quite so wrapped in cotton wool. It was expected that kids would take a tumble or get scrapes and bruises. The world continued to turn and kids and teens were healthy due to enough exercise.

Like most things pogo stilts have been modernized and fine tuned. The modern variation is called pogo or jumping stilts and they allow you to run and jump like a super hero. Of course, all this super efficiency means your kids and teens must wear the appropriate safety gear.

  • Pogo or jumping stilts are made of aluminum, fiber glass and rubber frames with a platform for each foot. The frames are strapped to each leg once your child or teen places the feet onto the platforms. Beneath the feet are springs. Your stilts let your child or teen jump six to nine feet. It is possible to run close to twenty miles per hour. No wonder kids and teens are keen to get their own pair of stilts.
  • Buy stilts that come with sturdy boots manufactured onto them. This is to ensure the stilts don?t come off. The stilts also have strong straps to retain the feet inside the boots.
  • The safest stilts have a carbon fiber spring. This type of spring gives a lot of bounce and improves the more it is used.
  • Rather than cumbersome straps, choose stilts with ski binders because it allows your child or teen to put on or take off the stilts very easily and quickly.
  • Pogo or jumping stilts are available in different weights so choose what is appropriate according to the weight of your child or teen. You could buy one size up (according to weight) so your child or teen grows into the stilts. Don?t go up any more than one weight as it would be unsafe.
  • Some pogo or jumping stilts come with a helmet, elbow and knee pads. Your child or teen must be fitted with safety gear before attempting to run and jump.
  • If your kids or teen really take to this activity and keep at you could simply replace the spring when they are ready for bigger, higher jumps and faster runs.

The great thing about modern stilts is they get kids and teens out into the fresh air and being active. Even better, they don?t realize they are doing exercise because the stilts are such fun. It also gets them lots of attention from everyone else in the vicinity.

Appreciating Social Media Marketing As A Culture | Internet Mastery

The more I read about Social Media, the more I think it needs it needs to be defined differently and apart from Web 2.0. If Web 2.0 is defined as a full-fledged computing platform serving web applications to end users, social media describes the (mainly online) technologies and practices that people use to share opinions, insights, experiences and perspectives in a community setting. It is safe to say Web 2.0 is a subset of social media.
What most people in business don?t realize is how much social media has upended our conventional school of thought on marketing. In fact, persisting in the old ways of marketing becomes detriment to businesses in the social media arena.
I have to relate a conversation I had 6 years ago with an old friend of mine. We were chatting over drinks when our interaction took a strange turn at one point. My friend was beginning to talk with a different accent. Within a few minutes I knew what was going on and I was miffed. I asked him, ?Is that how you speak to your grandfather??
This strange accent my friend had projected is a ?salesy? one. He said he was just practicing ?sales talk? on me. Sure, there will always be an appropriate time and place for such a talk. In social media context however, the best form of selling is no selling at all, and you can bet it will beat consultative selling hands down.
As the days go by, this ?no selling? approach is looking less like an option and more like an imperative. To begin to understand how social media has arrived at our doorstep, let me describe some major changes to statistics that usher its arrival.
Consider these:
1) Fewer ads reached more people with undivided attention in the 1960s. Today, more ads reach fewer people paying less attention.
2) 30% of TV viewers can recall a brand they saw on TV in 1960s. Today, less than 10% can recall a brand seen on TV.
3) Product proliferation means more choices for the buyer. In the 1990s, the number of brands on grocery store shelves tripled from 15,000 to 45,000.
4) Media proliferation: Beyond established radio stations, TV stations and magazine titles, information density and quantity has exploded with Internet-based publications, citizen journalism and the ever-increasing billions of web pages online. The amount of information a man living in the 18th century could absorb in his lifetime is equivalent to the amount we can absorb in a week!
5) Access proliferation: Information access points have blossomed from the good old days of newspapers, radios and TVs to include e-mails, search engines, instant messaging, blogs, satellite channels, video-on-demand, 3G content on cell phones, podcasting, iPods, multi-purpose video game consoles etc. Yet more choices of gadgets for consumers.
Proliferation means the days of a highly consolidated mass market is over, and this critical mass is getting more dispersed. As an Internet Marketer, I spend more time online than reading the papers and watching TV combined, while my parents? habits and lifestyle would remain much the same. This means that while TV advertisers are losing out on me, I can still search for the same information as they advertise, through the Net. The stark reality today is even the TV station is advertising for TV advertisers to use its channels as a platform.
Will the days continue to get darker for TV advertisements? It seems likely. You see, the current younger generation grows up using the Internet for leisure, not watching TV. The Internet takes it further by pushing mass consumerism via participation and interactivity as opposed to passivity associated with watching TV ads, because interaction gives immediate power of access to people who know exactly what they want, and they will go all out enquiring to get it.
Think about the typical surfing habits of an Internet user.

S/he started the day with clearing e-mails, reading the news, discover who else approach them on social networks or check sport scores. S/he continues to follow up on a few more websites of specific interests and if s/he is web-savvy, publishes content on his/her own web space and sites. If there?s still time left in the day, s/he turns his/her attention to leisure pursuits like movies and music and check if there?s anything to purchase or chat up with online pals in forums.
Notice this one fact: all the websites mentioned in the diagram above have the basic technology to invite visitors to create an account. Having an account empowers subscribers to customize or filter specific news they want to receive regularly and also interact with other subscribers. By the act of account creation, part of the subscriber?s subconscious mind has given consent to the website creator to push some promotion to him/her until s/he says, ?Stop.?
You can?t say ?stop? to advertisers through the goggle box. You can switch it off but that defeats the purpose of television. Nobody buys televisions to watch 30-second product placements. It?s too brief; when people want more information about a product, they would still resort to the Internet. If you are social media-savvy, you?ll know the whereabouts of your subscribers and engage them where they are precisely at their usual meeting points.
I am not concluding that Internet advertisement is what makes people buy. Quite on the contrary, many marketers fail to recognize 2 common consumer reactions which cut across both the Internet and TV:
1) They don?t want to be bombarded at.
2) They don?t participate in an environment or activity (like buying a TV set) only to expect something else totally different or out of context (watching ads).
In this respect, SMM goes against the grain of what Internet Marketing stands for and is quite an antithesis. Internet Marketing channels are cutting-edge, but the approach is ?oh, so 60s?, especially e-mail marketing. On the other hand, SMM?s greatest emphasis is in social proof and what good and bad about a product consumers are talking after having experienced it. Effectively, the onus of advertising no longer lies with the seller, but it has shifted to the buyer.
Here?s the tough part: SMM requires the original advertisers to let go of their marketing machinery and let the word-of-mouth (both endorsements and criticisms alike) runs its course. In the initial phase, advertisers have to promote to build up awareness. The marketing campaign is controlled, coordinated and carefully executed. But once people start to buy things and talk about them, it becomes apparent advertisers do not plan for what to expect (chaos out of all that yakkety-yak) and how to handle negative remarks.
Because the online world is unbridled, surfers can be as malicious as they want under the cloak of anonymity. One of the best examples I can think of are the forums in China where the posters would lambaste their local stars for every action they take or incident they?re involved in. Have you suffered character attacks before? I do actually years ago, for the most baseless of reasons. I have no respect for such unconstructive behavior and would not bother to hit back or defend myself, but try my best to love my enemies if that?s what Jesus says so. Of course, if you think that for every person who likes you, you have 2 more haters, you?d better look into the mirror and check whether you resemble Hitler or not.
Fortune 500 companies will not get bogged down by a single complaint, but a few smart ones know how to turn that complaint into a marketing twist, thereby placing the onus of advertising on that unhappy customer (to his/her credit).
If a product is truly defective and is considered ?dead? to its function, there?s nothing to shout about. Warranty support will have to follow up. It is those products with ?disputable grey areas? that can be further marketed with a twist.
Take for example the computer game ?Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08? by Electronic Arts. A gamer discovered a glitch where Tiger Woods can walk on water. He made a YouTube video about it and got 600,000 views.
Not to be outdone, EA picked up the buzz and responded with a video of the real Tiger Woods walking on water, declaring he is really that good, not a glitch. The video received more than 2 million views now. I do not know whether EA did rectify the glitch in the end, but I wouldn?t believe more sales didn?t convert out of that 2 million views. It is at least clear to us that by engaging the gamer?s feedback, EA has found something to ride on to create a greater impact. And the company did it with a whole lot of fun.
Here?s a purely hypothetical example. Heard that dirty ?Tickle-Me-Elmo? joke? Skip the next 5 paragraphs if you don?t want to read. As it goes:
A women desperately looking for work goes into a toy factory.
The Personnel Manager goes over her resume and explains to her that he regrets he has nothing worthy for her. The woman answers that she really needs work and will take almost anything. The Personnel Manager hems and haws and finally says he does have a low-skill job on the Tickle-Me-Elmo line and nothing else. The woman happily accepts. He takes her down to the line and explains her duties and that she should come in at 8am the next day.
The next day at 8:45, there?s a knock at the Personnel Manager?s door. The Tickle-Me-Elmo line manager comes in and starts ranting about the woman just hired. After screaming for 15 minutes about how badly backed up the assembly line is, the Personnel Manager suggested he be shown the problem.
Together they head down to the line and sure enough Elmos are backed up from here to kingdom come. Right at the end of the line is the woman just hired. She has pulled over a roll of the material used for the Elmos and has a big bag of marbles. They both watch as she cuts a little piece of fabric and takes 2 marbles and starts sewing them between Elmo?s legs.
The Personnel Manager starts to kill himself laughing and finally after 20 minutes of rolling around, he pulls himself together and walks over to the new employee and says, ?I?m sorry, I guess you misunderstood me yesterday. What I wanted you to do was give Elmo two test tickles.?
Can you imagine what happened when the Sesame Street franchise caught sight of this joke? It immediately registered a site at and kick off a new line of ?Elmo with 2 marbles? toys and they were selling like hot cakes.
Well, dream on! This is not going to happen for as long as Sesame Street has a reputation to protect. However, fans of Quentin Tarantino?s Pulp Fiction will relish this wallet as the next best real thing.

Ever since the ?bonging? incident, Michael Phelps went back on track focusing on swimming again, and established himself as a winning legend in his final Olympics, but here is yet another example worthy of social hype. I had previously asked: can his agent design a marketing campaign that makes light of the incident with a funny twist and yet is also sincere and inspirational, so that he can win back the favors of more people and Kelloggs (his commercial sponsor) as quickly as possible? Because at that point Michael was not completely ?defective?, and I suggested that he could surely find a way to redeem himself by renouncing past mistakes and possibly take up an anti-drugs abuse cause, and he did pick himself up alright.
Thus it is within the advertisers? immense responsibility to be able to track the chatter of consumers online (do a simple search of the names of yourself, your company, your products and brands and see where they ended up in the blogosphere or memesphere) and respond in a ?social media? manner which is akin to ?taking part in the fray?. Most business people would think, ?Who would want to take on such a risky endeavor??
The truth is you can learn how to respond, what/when not to respond and how to get customers to respond on their own as you like them to be. In Internet Marketing, communication with your subscribers and customers can be boiled down to these few types of interactions:
1) As always, you begin with promoting a product.
2) If the product is yours, you welcome your readers to send in a testimonial, feedback, questions so you can assist them with squeezing the maximum value out of the product.
3) You invite them to join in the affiliate program so they can promote the product and earn a commission for every sale. But did you notice without the affiliate program, they will not be as motivated to spread the word about your product on their own accord?
4) You run a survey to solicit feedback on what kind of product they haven?t seen before, but would help them solve their problems, and then go to work to produce a new thing. You go back to point 1).
In all these 4 points, did you notice the Internet Marketer is doing his/her best to project him/herself as the ?know-it-all expert? and centrally and fundamentally useful to the conversations? Something is greatly amiss and it is the community setting. Without it, the marketer fails to leverage on social media.
In theory, SMM would go like this:
1) You create an online community and invite people to talk about their businesses and how one particular methodology has helped enhance their financial bottomline if they had deployed it. Encourage those who don?t use the methodology to get involved in the discussion and introduce their businesses so that other members can pitch in their helpful suggestions.
2) Meanwhile, you, as the moderator, also ?join in the fray? and help out as much and as best as possible while getting to know the members better in the process. Perhaps in the course of help, you come to a point whereby commercial information cannot be divulged and so begin to match a product to a member?s needs. When you don?t know any better, refer the member to another for better advice.
3) Anyway, since you are the community creator, you have total control over the database. Even if you don?t own the network, other members can witness your pro-activeness and conduct and judge for themselves.
You can be sure there?s a strong air of goodwill going on in this environment and you are a winner (with affiliate commissions to boot), but the biggest winner of them all is the recommended product?s creator since s/he got the word-of-mouth. S/he did not sell a single word.
According to Neilsen Global Trust In Advertising Survey, 2007, we have reached a point where 14% of people trust ads and 78% trust consumer recommendations. This is as good as saying ? of an economy is working healthily on recommendations, not from salaried jobs!
Mitch Matthews, Head of Marketing at Microsoft, said, ?We?re shifting significant ad dollars to digital media. This is the era of customer participation. The old model was ?informing, persuading and reminding?. The new model is ?demonstrating, involving and empowering?.?
Does that mean Internet Marketers will jump on the SMM bandwagon pronto? Unfortunately, that?s not going to happen. I?ve already written that IM and SMM are polar opposites. There will be a bit of struggle in shuttling between these 2 cultures. SMM will require better EQ and some getting used to of new habits, the first of which is to stop promoting at the first instance.
Take a look at this screenshot of a discussion thread about SEO from the ?What?s This Web Thing? Ning network. Out of respect, you can see I?ve given 2 ?culprits? black faces (simply to protect their identities). Out of the blue, one promotes ?get 1 million visitors free? and the other promotes DirectMatches. Nothing relevant to SEO. How do you feel when you see these ads? It really puts me off especially when the million-visitor ad just sounds too good to be true. It will never, ever do any good for both the readers and the content publisher. If a thread has a dominant subject, please stick to it. Whenever someone ask a question for help, attack the question immediately, show that you?re a competent authority in your expertise and gain a new friend in the process. If you work as a coach or trainer, SMM will be very useful as a marketing vehicle.

There are 3 powerful words you can derive from The Cluetrain Manifesto: Markets are conversations. Yessiree, conversations are truly the currency of social media. The sad reality is in our daily effort to make a living through marketing and selling, we often do not realize we stop short of listening and instead use every possible tactic to win (a sale). It doesn?t matter whether it?s win-win or I-win-and-you-lose as long as I win FIRST. This kind of conversation in which one party is always thinking of a way to go one-up for him/herself is only urging us to approach our world and the people in it with an adversarial and competitive frame of mind.
Have we lost our natural ability to start an innocent and honest conversation? Has everyone started to talk like a salesman, like my friend 6 years ago? How do you break the ice then? If you haven?t done so, download Dale Carnegie?s How To Win Friends And Influence People and read this classic. In short, if you want to engage the other party in a conversation, you must unconditionally hand the power of talking over to them, and let them talk about themselves, their lives, their passion in business, their reasons for doing it and their long-term goals.
Understand this: by handing over the power of talking, you are receiving an even greater power?of LISTENING.
In marketing context, the statement goes: Every chance you are giving up to promote something, you gain an opportunity to engage a new business acquaintance as a friend in a conversation.
Every moment you?re not doing point 1) of IM, you stand an opportunity to do point 1) of SMM. Once you can get past this struggle, you can be cool about this SMM thing and go all out to be helpful and constructive without expecting short-term returns.
If I can?t listen to you properly, how can I help you as accurately as possible and get paid for it? Perhaps if I did succeed in helping you to the fullest, you may experience a feeling of gratitude deep enough to tell the world about my service without having to register with my affiliate program.

A How To Guide For Purchasing Jewelry |

Whatever your jewelry situation is, the jewelry world can get confusing. How do you know where to find more information on something like this? You can be more educated as a consumer by reading the hints in this article about jewelry.

A good clasp is important for any form of bracelet or necklace. Without a decent clasp, you risk losing your expensive stones or chains. Anytime you buy an expensive bracelet or necklace it is recommended you request a safety clasp. There are those who add one or two extra clasps to their expensive jewelry items to be certain of their safety.

It?s a simple way to turn a plain belt into something more eye catching. Either put it near your hip or near the middle of your waist.

Apply your makeup before putting on your jewelry. The sparkle of a piece of jewelry is a magnet for loose or wet makeup, which will leave it tarnished and dingy. This is even more necessary for earrings and necklaces.

If you own gold, whether it?s in the form of bracelets or necklaces, you can keep your pieces and still make money from them. Just cut off any excess. If you have enough of these pieces, you can clip off so little that people won?t even notice the difference. You can actually make a tidy sum by selling off odds and ends of jewelry in this manner.

Take off loose rings before doing dishes or laundry. An already loose ring can far too easily slip off when plied with soap and water.

Brand should not be the only consideration when purchasing jewelry. Nobody will realize where this piece came from, and the seller may sell the piece at a higher price because of this brand. There are several high quality brands.

Don?t buy a piece of jewelry without sitting down and setting aside a specific amount of money for it. This can help keep your search on track and give you a more refined set of options.

Have you ever considered purchasing jewelry second-hand? This can be a great way to add new pieces to your collection at a reasonable price. Often, used jewelry is just as good as brand new jewelry, but you get a bargain because new decreases in value after being worn just once.

A diamond with brilliant clarity and a perfect cut can be more attractive, not to mention more valuable, than a stone that is larger but flawed. Also, remember the person?s personality who will be receiving the diamond.

Perhaps you could settle for a cheaper wedding band for now and get a better one later. You could also make a plan to receive an upgraded diamond ring on your wedding anniversary, or another momentous occasion. Ask if your jeweler offers an incentive for future purchases, such as the ability to trade in your original ring for an upgraded one.

Jewelry is a gift that suits any occasion, but your special someone might be especially delighted to receive jewelry as a surprise. Many women love surprise gifts, especially ones that glitter. You are sure to cherish that moment of surprise and happiness as you give her such a beautiful gift.

Although jewelery cleaner specifically geared toward silver jewelry is ideal, this will do if you don?t have any cleaner available. Try putting some toothpaste on a fine cloth or paper towel. Buff your jewelry using the cloth to remove any tarnish, then rinse with clear water. While it may not come out looking brand-new, the piece will certainly appear less tarnished.

When you buy a piece of jewelery, inquire about the jeweler?s insurance policy. This is to avoid any future complications. If anything were to happen you have yourself covered and to avoid complications with that jeweler in the future, they can replace or fix it for you if you run into problems. There are jewelers who offer insurance for misplaced or lost jewelry, too.

When selling jewelry via the Internet, be sure to develop attractive and persuasive imagery of the pieces. This is extra important because the customer can not handle jewelry with an online transaction. Ensure the focus of your pictures is the piece itself.

Don?t swim while wearing your jewelry. The chlorine in pool water will corrode your jewelry and remove its shine. Salt water is just as bad as chlorinated water. To safeguard your valuable jewelry, set it aside in a safe place before you go in for a swim.

There are a lot of different aspects to jewelry and jewelry appraisal. As long as you take the time to educate yourself on the subject, though, you can buy, sell and care for jewelry wisely. Welcome to the exciting world of jewelry! When you apply the above advice, you are on the right path to a successful journey.

Captors free Kuwaiti hostage in Lebanon: KUNA

BEIRUT (Reuters) - A Kuwaiti national was freed by his kidnappers in Lebanon on Monday, state-run news agency KUNA said, and the man said he had been accused by his captors of funding the Syrian uprising.

Issam al-Houti was abducted in Lebanon's Bekaa region on Saturday. KUNA had originally reported that his wife was also kidnapped but Lebanon said only Houti had been seized.

The kidnapping took place days after more than 20 Syrians and Turks were seized by a separate Lebanese group which is trying to negotiate the release of a relative inside Syria.

"The kidnappers accused me of funding the Syrian revolution," Kuwaiti newspaper al-Rai quoted Houti as saying after his release. He also said he had been severely beaten.

Saudi Arabia, Qatar and other Gulf states advised their citizens last week to leave Lebanon because of signs violence was spreading there from neighbouring Syria, which is locked in a 17-month revolt.

Parts of Lebanon's Bekaa Valley have been beyond government control for years. A number of people have been kidnapped for ransom by criminal gangs there.

The Internet: Your Source of Income While You ... - E-hustle Online

Carla E. | Home Based Business, Work at Home Tips | 6 hours ago

How to Make Cash on The Internet

How to Make Cash On The InternetAre you one of those people who dream of touring the various countries and cultures of Europe, going on safari in Africa or experiencing the numerous exotic sights and sounds of the Orient? If so, you?re in good company. Many people long to travel, yet they have no idea how to make it happen.?

Unless you?re independently wealthy, you still face the reality of needing to earn a living while you travel. By using the Internet to your advantage, it?s possible to create the very income that you need to subsidize your journey and live an independent life anywhere you choose.

If you have an area of expertise, you can use it to cash in with your own website. Whether you possess an extensive knowledge of crocheting, cycling, nursing or another activity, you can create a money-making website that showcases your talent. Update your content regularly, and create a downloadable e-book available for purchase by your readers.

Some people choose to write Internet content for a living. Whether you sell your articles and blog posts directly to the appropriate websites, or sell content on sites that offer articles to a variety of customers, you can certainly generate enough cash to live modestly in a country with a low cost of living.

Online auctions are another way to accumulate the money you need to travel. The items you find in exotic locations may appeal to locals or to those back home. Research the market and price your items accordingly. Pick up an authoritative book that outlines the process of selling via online auctions if you?ve never placed items up for bids before.

Virtual assistants are becoming more and more popular in the Internet age. Small business owners often hire a virtual assistant rather than employing a full-time secretary to handle their correspondence. If you have office experience, you can easily market yourself as a virtual assistant and garner a regular weekly pay-check.

If you?d like the security of working for a company rather than working for yourself, consider a customer service position. Many companies hire customer service reps to work from home to provide assistance to their customers. You?ll have set hours and a pay-check that you can count on.

Consider starting a travel blog to detail your experiences around the world. Once you develop a regular following, you can entice companies to pay you to allow them to advertise on your blog. The higher the number of hits you receive, the more you?ll be able to charge your customers for advertising space.

As you can see, there are numerous ways to generate an income using nothing more than your computer and an Internet connection. No matter what type of business you choose, you can receive your pay wherever you hang your hat. With online banking, you can easily link your bank accounts and credit cards together for easy money transfers. Using services like PayPal and Western Union can allow you to send and receive money anywhere in the world.

No matter how you choose to make and manage your money, there are ways you can stretch your U.S. dollars even further. Many countries have a cost of living that is significantly lower than that in the United States. Research locales that appeal to you, and search out those that will allow you to live on the least amount of money possible.

Some countries to consider when it comes to living cheap include India, Vietnam, the Philippines, Poland, Thailand, Mexico, Peru and the Czech Republic. As currency values and economies are always changing, it?s important that you research well before any move to make sure you have the most up-to-date financial information.

Once you know the ins and outs of making a living online, travel no longer has to be a pipe dream. By doing your homework and investing sufficient time and effort, you?ll be able to create an independent source of wealth that allows you to live anywhere in the world that you desire.

Lucy James is a full-time freelance writer and a part time internet entrepreneur. After reading ?The Four Hour Work Week? four years ago, cubicle escape became her no.1 priority. She arrived back in the UK from Koh Tao Island just over a month ago where she was able to live the luxurious lifestyle of a wealthy person on not much more than ?750 per month. Lucy writes for Premier Self Storage, an ideal company to use if you?re planning on mini-retirement or medium to long-term travel overseas.
