Alternative Investment Education

With growing interest in the alternative investment markets, there was an obvious need for free education. Unfortunately, it’s very hard to find a company to help you “learn the ropes”. Since all investment sites are a disguised sales-pitch, we knew that free unbiased education would catch on. Looking at this opportunity as a public service, we found our niche, creating InsideTrade LLC which is an alternative investment blog with education on managed forex, private placement, managed futures and more

The use of videos for the effective dissemination of information is very important . Therefore, we've launched TradeTube, the only website with just investment videos to provide free education to investors interested in FX, managed futures , etc.

Unlike any other website, we provide free investment education with no solicitation to our members.

How to Achieve Success in Your Life

A couple weeks ago I have read an interesting article written by my blogger friend Allen . It is about how to become success in this life as I quoted below.

Like a muscle your brain needs exercise too! If you don't use it often enough or in the right ways you'll eventually become a slouch. Some of you might find that harsh, buts its the truth. Whatever you focus on most reflects who you are in your daily life. If you use your brain often and in the right ways you will become a skilled thinker and increase your ability to focus. I believe 'Use it or Lose it' is the phrase I'm looking for!

Good Luck !

How to Control Childhood Aggressiveness

Aggressive behavior in young children aged around 3-5 years could not be tolerated at all, because the rate will be higher until eventually may harm himself or others, such as throwing dangerous objects, hitting others and so on. .


- Less consistent application of rules at home.
- Lack of discipline


1. In applying the rules, parents should be united and support each other. There should be no difference of opinion in front of children. Example: My mother forbade children to eat candy, but the father or other family members explicitly allow or even in front of the child asking the mother to allow children to eat candy.

2. Give clear warning if the child begins to perform aggressive behavior. Tell the firm tone of voice and expression (not angry) Then let the behavior of what should be done for children: "You're only allowed to eat candy once a day." Or if the child is accustomed to whining every ask for something,then taught how to ask the right such as "If you want the toy, then ask me politely ”Mother, please give me the toy."

3. Give clear warning, if the child continues to whine or to act aggressive when asking for something that is forbidden, ignore until it stops itself (while not necessarily harmful). This may take a very long time, but parents should be able to refrain from providing what has been previously banned.

4. If a child is dangerous aggressive actions (eg hitting very hard or using a dangerous item):

a. hold the child's hand tightly (to stop the blow)
b. parallel face-to-eye with the child (an adult may be in a sitting position), then say firmly, "Not allowed to hit!"
c. If the child is still trying to hit, give warning of sanctions, " Mother / father will not let you go until you stop hitting "(no need to give expression of anger, just give a flat expression on the child).
d. After the child stopped trying to hit, give a warm smile and expression on the child, saying “Okay, now it is so much better. "
This statement is important so he knows what expected behavior is. After the child is calm, explain the reasons why parents ban or do not give anything, etc.

Good Luck !

Obama’s Speech at the University of Indonesia

In the event of a visit to Indonesia, President of the United States, Barack Obama came to the University of Indonesia (UI) in Depok, near Jakarta, on Wednesday (11/10). When he started talking, Obama greeted thousands of listeners in that campus with typical familiarity utterances of Indonesia, such as "Selamat Pagi (Good Morning" and "Assalamualaikum" while he expressed his pleasure to return to Indonesia.

In his speech he stated that Indonesia is a part of him. "Indonesia bagian dari diri saya," Obama said in Indonesian language fluently. Then he continued his lecture with a brief but striking sentence, such as " Pulang kampung nih (Go home to my village)" which greeted by thunderous applause and a boisterous laughter from the audiences.

Obama also described the profound impressions about Indonesia and Jakarta
where he had ever lived during he was at elementary school. He said that he likes Indonesian foods, like : "Satai”, “emping”, “krupuk”, meatballs, and delicious fried rice.

President Obama explained, in the stage of development, he never expected when he first saw Jakarta. "There was only the Hotel Indonesia and one Sarinah shopping center. Now, the development is already growing rapidly, " he said.

Obama praised Indonesia, including praising its motto “Binneka Tunggal Ika” or Unity in Diversity, and “Panca Sila” or Five Principles.. According to Obama, Unity in Diversity is the foundation for development and democracy. That could be an example to the world in the 21st century.

In Addition, President Obama said, there are three areas which are fundamental in building Indonesia, namely : development, democracy, and religion.

He said that he never imagined connectedness between Jakarta and Chicago. In a democracy, President Obama called Indonesia is a country that adopted a democratic right. He also said that from Sabang to Merauke it should be able to implement democracy. "Development and democracy must grow in tandem in this archipelago," he added seriously.

It is said, Indonesia has also become an example of the transparency. "Having a strong leader in anticipating climate change. We also want education to be strengthened. We want a lot of U.S. students who study in Indonesia and vice versa," said President Obama.

Rehabilitation Programs After Natural Disasters

The eruption of Mount Merapi and the devastating tsunami in Indonesia recently, of course, will leave tremendous negative impact for citizens who have been hit by those natural disasters. Although they have successfully survived being evacuated by volunteers into the refugee camps, but the feeling of fear and trauma can not simply escape from themselves. Horrible experience it seems to haunt them every time. This not only happens to women and children, but also men who seem to be more rigid and though.

The changes in life circumstances happened so quickly. The volcano suddenly erupted and released heat clouds that slid down the mountain slopes at high speed. They ran hurriedly fled to save themselves. They did not get to carry things that support their lives, such as livestock for farmers.

The tragedy was very surprising, both for elderly people and children. Most of them are difficult to adapt to these rapid changes. In the refugee camps they were still confused , especially little kids. They were still wondering what the hell happened?

According to the problems mentioned above, the rehabilitation programs, both physically and mentally, should be given to them. For example, the children must be entertained or be invited to play, in order to distracting to a more pleasant conditions. To the teenagers could be given training activities, such as making pictures, recording activities in the camp and so on.

If you have any idea or suggestion, please leave comments below.
We thank you so much for your attention and deeply sympathy.

God bless you all !

Twin Disasters in Indonesia

Two natural disasters have occurred almost simultaneously in Indonesia. A volcanic eruption and tsunami killed dozens of people in separate locations with a distance of hundreds of miles.

On Tuesday (26 October 2010) Mount Merapi in Central Java erupted, killing at least 25 people, while thousands of others forced to flee deep into the mountain slopes safer. The volcano has been spewing high-temperature ash and smoke to the air above the island of Java.

Meanwhile, in the Mentawai islands that exist off the coast of western Sumatra, which lies about 800 miles west of Mount Merapi, on Sunday (24 October 2010) had an earthquake to 7.2 on the Richter scale, followed by tsunami waves with a height of 10-feet . Devastating tsunami waves had swept hundreds of homes, killing at least 150 residents of local communities, while there were about 500 people missing.

In 2006 Mount Merapi had erupted, killing two people. Similar eruptions occurred on 1994, killing 60 people. While the explosion in 1930 killed 1,300 people.

At first, many local villagers refused to move from the fertile slopes of the volcano. They said they want to stay there while protecting homes and their possessions. However, due to increasingly desperate situation, then the thousands of villagers began flocking to places of refugee in emergency shelters Tuesday night.

According to the news broadcast on television , the victims died have already reached more than 25 people, while dozens of people in critical condition since suffering serious burns from hot clouds that glide brunt of Tuesday evening . The victims were taken to hospitals in Yogyakarta.

Junk Food and Childhood Obesity

The number of children who are overweight is increasing every year. In fact, according to health research, the percentage of childhood obesity in the United States grew at an alarming rate - one of three children now considered overweight or obese. A new study released by the National Cancer Institute report has found that nearly 40 percent of the calories consumed by children aged 2 to 18 years is bad calories, most unhealthy type of calories, which come from junk food , like that comes from soda, sugar-sweet drinks, cakes, cookies, donuts, ice cream, pizza, and whole milk .

The dependency on food mentioned above has been quite alarming for the health of children. This food is for the majority of genetically modified and loaded with unnatural additives, pesticides, and herbicides .. They are packaged in many interesting colors so that children beg to their parents to buy corn syrup-laced cereal and soda.

On the other hand, actually there are also many foods that come from sources of organic food that is free from toxic pesticides and others. This means that they can increase better the caloric intake of children . All food is made through a process that is cheaper with no additional preservatives and other additives, so it contains better nutrition. We have to accustom early the children to eat healthy, so they will not be overweight.

In addition, they also will be spared from diabetes, heart disease, cancer and other serious illnesses that are usually associated with obesity..  .

Good Luck!

Sun Storms and Global Warming

A couple days ago my senior blogger friend H. Nizam has written an article about Flood in Wasior, West Papua . This article then remembered me about my writing Solar Storms in 2012 .

Referring to those above articles, it looks like there is relationship between sun storms and global warming. According to several scientific researches, I think that it is true.
The impact of the explosions in the sun can be very serious, having a variety of effects on Earth.

The recent climate change is caused by the global warming. In other hand, the global warming occurs because there are several explosions on the sun surface.
Actually we have tried to reduce the impact of global warming phenomena since long time ago, i.e by planting many, many of woods, including reforesting some regions. But, unfortunately there is no positive result yet.

Driven by interest in emerging markets, Asian stocks shot a two-year high, while the dollar edged up after the selloff last week despite speculation the Federal Reserve will increase the money supply is still ongoing.

European stocks are between half a percent and 1 percent lower in early transactions, while the dollar remained near eight-month to its lowest level against a number of major currencies, with hopes of raising the Fed will resort to the second round before the year completed the purchase of bonds to support the U.S. economy.

Next Destination : LONDON

When I was studying in London, UK, several years ago, I didn’t forget to visit the wonderful Madame Tussauds Museum . It is a really interesting place to look at, because you could meet personally the famous persons in the world, although in wax. There were Queen Elizabeth and her family, President of United States, the legendary musician like the Beatles, Hollywood celebrities, etc.

With its reputation as one of the largest metropolitan city and the world's fashion centers, there are many reasons for a visit to London, either for lovers of art, history, or the shopaholics. Beside the eternal attraction of the museum and gardens, the tourists keep coming back to London to look for something new. In this city there is no word of boring. There are a series of exhibition events held throughout the year 2010. Van Gogh Exhibition held in March and April. Celebrating of the 60's Twiggy Birhday in March. And the Sister Act musical drama began March 2, 2010.

From now you can also buy a ticket to London for 2012. At that time London will host the Olympic Games for the third times.

Hope you’ll enjoy a happy vacation in London !

Something Stupid

After listening to Clark Kent’s poem “ A walking Cliché “ from the nice blog Passion In Words , immediately I remembered the lyrics of the famous song sung by Robbie Williams and Nicole Kidman. I think that most of you know it well. Yep, that is Something Stupid :

I know I stand in line
until you think
you have the time
to spend an evening with me
and if we go
some place to dance
I know that
there's a change
you won't be
leaving with me
then afterwards
we drop into
a quit little place
and have a drink or two
and then I go
and spoil it all
by saying something stupid
like I love you

I can see it in your eyes
that you despise
the same old lines
you heard the night before

And though it's
just a line to you
for me it's true
and never seemed
so right before

I practice every day
to find some
clever lines to say
to make the meaning
come through
but then I think
I’ll wait until the
evening gets late
and I'm alone with you

The time is right
your perfume fills my head
the stars get red
and oh, the night's so blue
and then I go and spoil it all
by saying something stupid
like I love you
I love you
I love you
I love you

Well, you can find that lovely song by searching it on YouTube, of course.

Enjoy and Happy Singing !

Bali: Where Art and Business Promotion Impressive.

A couple weeks ago I was reading God Bless Indonesia. Then I remembered about the island of Bali.

Who does not know Bali? I think, almost all people in the world knew it. Even those more familiar with the name of Bali than Indonesia. Once, when I studied abroad, I was often asked, where did I come When I answered that I come from Indonesia, they looked confused. Then they asked me in return: “ Indonesia? Where is Indonesia ?”. Immediately I understood their reluctance, and said : “Do you know Bali?” They answered : “Yes, we know Bali, that Island of Paradise !”. I replied that I come from that island. Then I explained that Bali is one of 17,000 islands owned by the State of Indonesia. They nodded, knowingly.

Bali Island is really one of the famous tourist destinations in the world. The natural beautiful landscape combined with a strong traditional culture including magical ritual ceremony is the part of fascination for this Island of Paradise. Many artists, such as painters from foreign countries come here to seeking inspiration. Some of them even ended up living in Bali.

Nowadays many Hollywood movie Celebrities also come for holiday and vacation in Bali. Several years ago Mick Jagger, a rock star from the Rolling Stones, had come also here. It seems that those movie stars realized that the island of Bali is one of the best promotions and impressive places on the world.. Of course they were not throwing off this good opportunity. . So they flocked to the island of Bali to make films with local unique cultural background..

Welcome to Bali! .

Contract Management Software

Usually the contract lifecycle begins from request, authoring, negotiation, approval, execution, management of ongoing obligations to amendment and renewal of contracts. This is a very, very big job to manage, of course. In a large organization, for example, that does business with many entities, managing the numerous contracts manually can be a headache and needs very much time. But, do not worry ! In this IT millennium century we do have contract management software comes in handy.

Contract management software is not limited to large organizations. If you have smaller organizations with fewer users, then you can also benefit from the various advantages this software offers such as reduced contract administration costs, reduced exposure and better compliance.

In addition, Contract Management Software can either be open source or customized to respond to a business’ specific needs. If one chooses to go for open source software then it’s important to look for one that is adaptable to multiple systems.

Let’s Vent on Soapbox Musings !

Yesterday I received an email from my friend Eric Olsen. He mentioned that it suddenly occurred to him that something has been missing from the excellent original content we have been writing for our opinions! They have been zeroed in on news and analysis, and that's very important and will certainly continue, but everyone needs to have fun, also, and let the opinions rip! Positive or negative, of great or minor import, a fleeting or entrenched thought nagging at our craw — say hello to "Soapbox Musings" .

He then added that all TR writers have access to this feature and we are very much encouraged to use it! Soapbox Musings stories can be as short as 100 words (longer is fine, too!) and can be on essentially any topic. Of course, this is our chance to stand on the soapbox and bemoan, praise, or opine on items in the news , real life occurrences, multimedia items (embedded video, etc), writing/blogging, the Internet, technology, etc.

Whatever our gripe, praise, or opinion may be, Soapbox Musings is our stage.
Wow…., it is really a wonderful idea. I like it.

Happy venting !

How to Promote Your Sites

These tips actually have been much discussed in the sites by the senior bloggers. But maybe there are some colleagues who didn’t read them. So I describe again below
the information that I have taken from various sources.

Publicity is 90% done by the internet business. Without your blog or web publicity there would be no visitors at all. So, how to increase traffic web visitors? Here are some steps of publications ...

1. Join many communities or forums

Create a separate email specifically for the main e-mail mailing list so that you are not disturbed by the arrival of many emails.
Some Community Forums:

2. Link / Banner Exchange

Make a banner or link exchange URLs with other domain owners.

3. Search Engines
Submit your URL to many search engines:
Register your adsense URL manually into several search engines:

4. Offline promotion

Most of internet businesses have never done this offline promotion. But the offline promotion is also useful. I think you know about Multi Level Marketing business, or any other business that does not use the internet. But they were also able to make publication without the internet. They use stickers, posters, or any other kind of offline promotion.

Good Luck !

Chicago Breast Cancer 3-Day Walk

Today is August 6th, 2010. I am imagining to lace up my shoes together with my brother Brian Gardner and other people for the Chicago Breast Cancer 3-Day Walk, and start an emotional journey that will take us 60 very long and grueling miles. This walk is very hot, this walk is very painful. There is sweat, and there are many tears.

We don’t walk to get recognition. we don’t walk because we want people to think of us heroes We walk so that a little girl can grow up and spend time with her mother. We walk so that a mother can watch her daughter walk down the aisle at her wedding. We walk so that we don’t have to console another friend while a part of her life was taken too soon. We walk because we are physically able to, while others are not. We walk because we have been given so much, and we want to give back as much as we can.

We walk, because we cannot walk away… and when our time on earth comes to an end, we want everyone to know… we were here… .

Happy Walking !

Modern Channel DJ Mixer

If you want to successfully manage the sound system at a live show that many people attend, then you are advised to use a modern mixer that has an average of two or six-channel stereo audio for mixing a variety of sources. Such equipment is usually already equipped with separate controls for each channel, and also includes a few microphone inputs or additional inputs to the additional channels.

According to the above information , and based on my experience as an Event Organizer, I would like to propose you use Channel DJ Mixer ..

I hope you will be successful and satisfied with that modern equipment.

Hillary Clinton Laments Global Crackdown of Human Rights

U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton, arrived in Baku, Azerbaijan, on Sunday, July 4, 2010, after visiting Poland. On America's Independence Day, she announced to regret the global crackdown on human rights. In Poland she declared the same issue that really slowing down the development of democracy.

"We must be wary of the steel vise in which governments around the world are slowly crushing civil society and the human spirit," Clinton said.

At the international conference of democracy and human rights in Poland, she recalled Winston Churchill's warning 60 years ago that an iron curtain was descending across Europe. She noted that with the collapse of the Soviet Union that curtain no longer remains.

Meanwhile, Azerbaijan ‘s President Ilham Aliyev wished Clinton a happy Independence Day and then stressed the urgency of his country’s territorial dispute with neighboring Armenia. The two nations are in conflict since a 1994 cease-fire.

Clinton said her current trip began in Ukraine and is to include stops in the former Soviet states of Armenia and Georgia. The objective is to demonstrate the Obama administration's commitment to democracy and human rights.

She recommended that the Community of Democracies set up an independent means of monitoring repressive measures against social advocacy groups, and that the U.N. Human Rights Council do more to protect civil society. She announced that the U.S. would contributed $2 million to support the work of embattled non-governmental organizations.

Where Did Vampire Draculas Live ?

Several years ago, during the time I took my graduate studies in Romania, I often visited tourist areas there. One of those places is the famous Transylvania. It is easy to reach. If you drive a car, it would take about an hour from Bucharest, the capital of Romania.

Transylvania is a mountainous region with beautiful landscapes. It has many interesting historical notes. For example, it was told that once upon a time there lived a cruel count known as Vlad Tepes who always punished or killed his enemies sadistically.

I think that the Irish author. Bram Stoker had been inspired to write his novel ‘Dracula” after hearing about the cruelties of Count Vlad Tepes. Then his novel and its films became popular with the horror of vampires , although the author did not invent the vampire in his original book..

Beside those horrible stories above, Romania is also known as a good wine producer. Tuica is one of alcoholic drinks you can taste there.

If you feel curious and want to explore the places with sensational experiences, please do not hesitate to travel and visit Transylvania someday ..

Have a Nice and Happy Vacation in Romania !

Nuclear Vessels Development in Argentina

Article first published as Nuclear Vessels Development in Argentina on Technorati.

Nilda Garre, Argentine Minister of Defense , announced recently the possibility of reviewing the idea of using nuclear reactors to power some of its naval vessels. She said that the country wants to maintain its position of leadership in industrial and technological skills in the area, and that Argentina does not want to be left out of nuclear propulsion technology.

Therefore, an evaluation will be carried out to determine if the technical resources are available for Argentina to develop its own nuclear vessels. Small pressurized water reactors are being considered, because they have already been used in the fleets of China, France, India, Russia, the UK and USA.
Russia is already using nuclear power for a fleet of civil icebreakers, and that technology is now being used to develop nuclear power stations that allow for small marine reactors to be placed on transportable barges.

One potential supplier of reactors suitable for requirements would be the nuclear technology firm Invap, which has already developed several research reactors as well as the Carem power plant design.

Prospects of Radioisotopes for Economy Development

Article first published as Prospects of Radioisotopes for Economic Development on Technorati.
In a keynote lecture at the opening of the first World Nuclear University (WNU) School on Radioisotopes (RI School) in Seoul recently, Werner Burkart, deputy director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said that the nuclear renaissance is not just about nuclear power.
Some 60 radioisotope (RI) professionals from 30 countries, including several from developing countries, were taking part in this intensive three-week leadership development school.
In his overall outlook for the technology RI, Burkart said that there has been significant growth in this field. The prospects for high-tech technologies, such as positron emission tomography (PET) is currently growing at 20% per year. He added that more traditional RI applications in healthcare and environmental protection would also see steady expansion, notably in the context of a worldwide cancer epidemic.
Meanwhile, in his speech at the opening of RI School, the WNU president John Ritch described the use of radioisotopes for peaceful purposes, especially in the economy development. He said, "The Role of Radioisotopes for our economy largely hidden and often underestimated, but in fact it gives so much value to industry, agriculture and health. One of the objectives of the RI School is to encourage and equip you to become a leader who can help to overcome the lack of public understanding of the role of Radioisotopes for peaceful uses. "
At the RI School participants discuss various issues, including the background of worldwide shortages in the availability of the main isotopes used in 80% of nuclear medicine applications, molybdenum-99 (Mo-99). During the program, they will analyze the causes of these deficiencies, and to find viable solutions in the short-term, medium and long term.

Work At Home

What measures can the future home business entrepreneur take when traversing the abyss of home business opportunity? Let us look at some of the basic things a future ‘work at home’ or ‘home based business’ owner can do to avoid being scammed by the savvy internet marketing crowd.

Several home based businesses have proven themselves to be legitimate over the years and have been proven to return the home business owner/operator a genuine income. These home business opportunities can be looked up and verified on the internet through the BBB Internet Website. But what if your chosen ‘Work At Home’ business is not listed with the BBB?

If the home based business you are investigating requires an investment of over $500.00, then you should check with the State Business Agency of that State which the home business is located, to be sure that the business is registered with the State, as required by law. If the Home Business opportunity is not registered, then you should do your diligent duty and report said home business, as a courtesy to fellow internet marketers. There are plenty of legitimate ways to make money on the internet, why allow a scammer to swim in our pond and dirty up the water?

If the home business opportunity requires only minimal investment, your next step in your internet home business investigation is via the numerous vigilante ‘home business’ watchdog organizations that proliferate the internet. You may notice that ‘Google ads’ for assistance in determining the good ‘Work At Home’ and ‘Home Business Opportunities’ from the bad, seem to swarm around any area that discusses a home based business, like gnats hovering over ripe bananas. Remember this…Anyone paying for you to click through to their site to help you decide, has their own agenda. Unless of course, it is a Public Service site, an excellent place to ascertain the legitimacy of a Work At Home/Home Business.

A final aspect to identify a truly profitable ‘work at home business,’ is to determine if the home based business presents multiple streams of income. People’s desires and fascinations for whatever tickles their fancy at the moment, is not something to build your future on. Having only one or two items whose sales incur the bulk of your income, is like building your home business on a pile of sand. The ideal work at home business provides several diverse programs that not only provide immediate home business opportunity, but also offers residual internet business income down the road.

In conclusion; research, calculated approach, and common sense are what is required when choosing the best home based business, also these are the keys to avoid a home business scam. Often a quick and prudent check of a home business opportunity can be accomplished by typing the Home Business Name in quotes, into a popular search engine browser, along with the word scam outside the quotes: “home business name” scam. This has been a most efficient way to gain information on a work at home business, and gain knowledge of negative/positive feedback of any new home based opportunity through internet marketing blogs. That is one of the saving graces of the internet; its ability to broadcast valuable information equally and quickly.

New Vaccine for Brain Cancer Treatment

(Published on Technorati)

All the diseases that attack brain have very frightful effects. Not only they could cause permanent disabilities, they also could cause death. For example, brain cancer, which attacks the controlling function of the body nerves.
A specific vaccine has been developed to prevent brain cancer. This vaccine is in use in an experiment on Karen Vaneman, a brain cancer patient from Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center at Duke University. She had to give 21 small bottles of her blood during the first week of every month.

Guide to Nuclear Power Safety

When working with or near something as hazardous as nuclear material, it is best to know as much as possible about atomic safety. Nuclear radiation protection awareness grows more important every where. As with any measure of safety, it is important to take the most effective precautions specific to your business' situation.

In the past there have been two notable events involving commercially operated nuclear power plants: the Three Mile Island II incident in 1979, and the Chernobyl-IV accident in 1986. Both events, traumatic as they were at the time, have been “blown up” out of proportion in the past. It is now nearly 25 years after Chernobyl, and perhaps the general public has largely forgotten. But the true scale needs to be borne in mind. An international multi-agency conference was held in 2005 specifically for this purpose and it was widely reported in the media. The main conclusion was that the damage caused by the accident was not as widespread as originally thought.

The backbone of any nuclear power facility are the Policies and Operations guides that tell all personal what to do in each situation. As plants become more technologically sophisticated and security issues more important, however, the related operations and policy manuals fill more volumes than ever. Most training today is done to reinforce the use of these guides, and over time, with seasoned operators, the underlying logic and step-by-step procedures become instinctive.

Therefore, it is very important to find the most useful nuclear safety information not only for yourself, but your business.

Want to Become a Feature Columnist ?

I was surprised to receive the last Newsletter from Technorati. It contains this useful information :

Dear Technorati writers, Please take the time to read these suggestions from Technorati Executive Editor Matt Sussman about how to get the most out of your Technorati experience. Thanks!

Good evening, everyone! Hope it's warming up wherever you reside. Don't stay in the sun too long, however — we've got some great ideas for you wherein you can become an expert in your field of expertise.

There lies within the chambers of our mysterious website an untapped potential that many of you can and should harness. If any of you have ever said to yourself, "My topic of interest must not be wanted because there is no channel/category/place for it," well, you have the power to CREATE that community within Technorati.

I am, of course, talking about feature columns. Examples of such current features: "The Ballot," which pertains to the 2010 elections "The 12th Man," the definitive basketball feature "From The School House," which covers education in the news.

In case you didn't know how to get a feature started, let's go over the three steps:

Step 1: Decide what your feature will cover.

Be very specific. Few will be very interested in a topic consisting of "my unique thoughts on the world around me," but if you were to focus on a series of, say, thoughts on reality TV or mobile technology, suddenly you've defined your territory. And don't try to bite off too much.

Say you want to write about "the media." Well, that's actually a very good idea, because bloggers have unwittingly become the watchdog of the fourth estate. But there is so much media out there, and you are but one mortal human! Try sizing it down to "political media" or "gaming media" or "celebrity/gossip media." Now it's a lot easier to digest.

Step 2: E-mail any editor with the following information:

a. The name of the feature

b. At least a 100-word pitch/intro/mission statement to be published on the feature's index page. Speak in the present tense. What does this feature cover? Why are you particularly interested in this topic?

c. Two graphics to serve as logos: a banner (602x160 pixels on TR) and an icon (60x60 pixels) which will appear on the index page and every article. If you do not have image creating abilities, maybe you have a buddy who does. Maybe another writer/editor can offer their services. Editors may also be available for this task if you ask nicely.

Step 3: Write under the feature with regularity.

The best way to build a community is be as frequent as possible. Strive for writing four or five days a week if you can. Weekly is also a very consistent frequency, but volume should be as much as you think you can handle on a regular basis.

There are also collaborative features. The 12th Man, The Ballot, Social Goodness, and PerpPlexity are such examples; you really needn't do nothing more than write under these features and be proud of it. (If you don't have this listed under your "feature" pulldown, notify an editor and we will add you to it. Some of these features have specific criteria by which one must adhere.)

Indonesian Ornamental Fish

It is not difficult to bring the beauty of life in the water in our homes, whether it comes from freshwater environments, as well as from the sea. What is needed is a glass vessel and several life-support equipment such water creatures, a little basic knowledge of water chemistry, little information on occupant behavior, and a little touch of art, and time can be spent to care for .

The beauty does not necessarily mean expensive, many alternatives that can be used as aquarium, from the cheapest to most expensive. Choose which according to the tastes and abilities and align with the beauty that wants to present.
With a little touch of art, something simple can turn into spectacular works. Begin by thinking of a theme of aquatic life that wants to be presented, so that people will be easily led to the things I want to find from the look and trapped in the beauty of which is presented.

One thing to keep in mind that the success of ornamental fish, depending on the success of "maintaining" the water. If we managed to maintain the water so fish and other aquarium inhabitants will be able to automatically maintain themselves.

Occasionally we will realize, that being an ornamental fish, hobbies, like it or not, will automatically be at the same time also being an "expert" person in chemistry, physics, biology and mathematics. Do not believe? Try to start keep ornamental fish and prove it. However, you will not be alone, a lot of other hobbies that are ready to help you. If the clubs need to follow the ornamental fish in your place or join the virtual discussion groups on the internet about ornamental fish.

You can spend hours on research over the internet and at the library or book store. But why not download one utlimate guide one time and have all of the answers at your fingertips all of the time?

Enjoy and Good Luck !

Say it with flowers!

From this expression turns out that flowers have a lot of beneficial interest. Flowers can be used as an ornamental garden and yard. Flowers can be used as room fragrances. Flowers can also be used as cosmetic ingredients or perfumes for women. Even flowers can be used as medicine to heal diseases. And flowers used too as a symbol for getting peace in the war!

How to grow flowers ?

1. Get flower seeds

Pick only good flower seeds from a recognized company. This will ensure healthy flowers. You may also collect seeds from a noted flower garden as an alternative. However you should know that when you propagate from garden seeds, there is a possibility you may not get a genuine flower clone.

2. Set up garden beds

Setting up garden beds includes thawing, raking the soil surface, removing rocks and clay clods and combing the garden until a fine texture is achieved. Supplement your flower beds with compost and organics. Dig 6 – 8 inches before you put them in. Nitrogen will weaken your plants so try to avoid adding it when setting up your flower bed. Sprinkle the flower bed with water and let it drain for at least 24 hours.

3. Plant the flower seeds

If you picked fine flower seeds, it will be easier for you to plant them if you mix them with sand. This will also ensure even distribution. Use the back of your spade to press fine seeds lightly into the soil. If you have larger flower seeds, dig low trenches and place the seeds with the use of your hands. They should be fixed deep, far apart from one another. Regardless of seeds size, you have to make sure that the covering soil is both fine and porous so that young seedlings can easily push through.

4. Water the flower beds

Soak your seeds completely into the prepared soil. On the first time of watering your plants, you should be very cautious so that you will not disturb seed placement. The best way to prevent them from washing away or clumping together is with the use of a fine hand mister. Water your flower beds whenever necessary but be careful not to over-water. Doing so will cause your seeds to rot.

If you follow all these easy steps on how to grow flowers then you will have your personal haven in no time. All it needs is a little of your care and attention.

Good Luck !

My Third Writing on Technorati

According to a press release issued by LAPAN (Institute of Aeronautics and Space Indonesia) recently, solar storms are expected to begin increasing in 2012, peaking between 2012 and 2015. The impact of these explosions in the sun can be very serious, having a variety of effects on Earth.

Physicist Dr Michio Kaku has said that the main impact of the solar storms in 2012 will be on high technology equipments such as satellites, internet, television networks and telecommunications systems. Dr Michio Kaku suggested that steps should be taken to reinforce the satellites and create redundant power systems. In the United States, President Obama has already earmarked billions to be spent on the US power grid.
The solar activities may also contribute to climate change. However, when compared to greenhouse gasses, most scientists believe the impact is minimal.

How to Stop Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

Someone who has been suffering from OCD for over 25 years gave us the information as described below.

“If you or any of your loved ones are suffering from OCD, you need to know that there are millions of people around the world suffering from this very disorder. I have first hand experience with OCD as I have lived with this often misunderstood anxiety disorder for over twenty five years. My OCD started when I was just six years old. During my late teens while I was at college, things started to get really tough.

I once went to see my doctor about the OCD, who simply said that it was nothing to worry about and that it would soon pass. Well it didn't! Not knowing what to do I went to see a few specialists in this field. Although these therapists tried, they couldn't cure my problem. I also tried alternative therapies such as acupuncture and homeopathy, but unfortunately none of them helped.

That's when I started spending hours almost everyday trying to find a cure to my problems. After around ten years of research, I managed to easily cure my mind numbing disorder without any type of medicine or side effects.”

My Second Writing on Technorati

The introduction of nuclear power in developing countries faces two major obstacles, namely financing and public acceptance. Financing, because the capital costs of nuclear power plants are significantly higher than fossil power plants: on a per kilowatt basis about twice the capital costs of coal-fired power plants and three times the capital costs of natural gas combined-cycle plants. It is said that capital is scarce in developing countries and therefore should be used wisely. Public acceptance is necessary, since otherwise delays caused by protests and demonstrations could easily inflate capital costs due to possible increases in interest charges and therefore such protests and demonstrations should be avoided.

The United States Government has shown its commitment to support the development of a new generation of nuclear power plant (NGNP, Next Generation Nuclear Plant) that is more secure and safe.
World Nuclear News dated March 9, 2010 reported that two groups of technologies, each headed by General Atomics and Westinghouse, have been asked to complete the conceptual design and make detailed plans to build the NGNP.

How to Face Children Obesity

Based on the survey result in USA recently, approximately 16% of children and adolescents aged 2-19 years were obese. And according to a 2008 article in the Journal of the American of Medical Association, the prevalence of obesity among US children and adolescents increased significantly between 1980 and 2004.

This means there were negative tendencies towards overweight that will cause problems and diseases related in years upcoming. Kids will also face medical, emotional, and social consequences . In reality no kid likes to be made fun of and overweight children can be the target of peer pressure and ridicule. Extra pounds can lead to low self-esteem and social problems, not to mention high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease and orthopedic problems.

A common parental complaint is that their children spend too much time indoors with video games rather than outside getting exercise in the fresh air. Older teens, who always appear to be trying to get out of the house, may not be getting enough aerobic exercise outside of school. Their thumbs may be in great shape from all that texting but what about the rest of their physique?

What can a parent do to insure their child is getting enough exercise – and the right kind of exercise? One thing you can do is set a good example by adhering to a healthy diet and getting enough daily exercise yourself.

My First Writing Published on Technorati

Five months ago I was approved to write on Technorati. However, for several reasons, partly because my English was not perfect yet, then my article was rejected and could not be published on Technorati.

As I mentioned in my article before about "Time Has Come to Write for Technorati" on my site ON-MAGAZINE, I was not surprised when they commented about my English writing, because I am not English native speaker. I am fully aware that I am writing in English while still thinking in Indonesian. Therefore, I should improve my English writing to become really a Technorati Writer. Then I tried once again to send other writings, but they still did not want to receive them due to the same reasons.

They sent me an e-mail and stated: “Thank you for taking another shot at your article on depression treatment. I had to move it back to drafts because it's still not ready to be published. Unfortunately, a majority of the piece has bad sentence structure and doesn't flow well.”

But I did not give up. I tried again and again to continue to improve my writing quality. And finally I succeeded. Yesterday I received an automatically-generated email:

”An article of yours has just been published on .
Thank you! You can now blog or tweet about this article, this bundle of HTML might help: New Perspectives for Depression Treatment

There are now widgets for and on article pages; please help get the ball rolling by retweeting your article, and see where things go from there!Thanks again!”
