NO HALO of romance hangs over the head of Harry Tracy. He does not belong to the old West. He
had no Bret Harte complex. There is no chance that blended fact and fiction will make of his life a
legend. He was a criminal at heart, a cold-blooded killing machine. But it must be admitted that in his
own line he was preГ«minent.
The most thrilling man hunt America has ever known began on the morning of June 9, 1902, at the
gates of the Oregon Penitentiary, and continued with unabated vigour until August 5th. Early on
June 9th Harry Tracy, murderer and convicted burglar, assisted by his partner, David Merrill,
escaped from prison after killing three guards, wounding a fourth, and shattering the leg of another
prisoner who attempted to wrest from him the rifle with which he was armed. For nearly two months
this keen-eyed, resourceful, and desperate outlaw wrote in blood the most thrilling melodrama ever
enacted in real life. No "penny dreadful" ever bristled with such fascinating impossibilities; no
character in fiction ever combined with such wonderful nerve and daring so much shrewdness,
dogged determination, deadly skill with weapons, and knowledge of human nature as was displayed
by the outlaw Tracy. To say that not once, during the months in which he was hunted by hundreds
of armed men and by bloodhounds, did he show the white feather, or even the slightest excitement,
is to tell but a small part of the truth. Many men on the Western frontier might have emulated his
coolness and nerve, but not one of them could have paralleled his smiling audacity, his contempt for
fearful odds, the skill with which he eluded his pursuers, and the unfailing accuracy with which he
executed his carefully planned manœuvres. Whenever the arm of the law was stretched forth
to gather him in, Tracy like a tiger at bay, showed his teeth and bit so suddenly and so fearfully that
brave men stood aghast. His fight for liberty was the most desperate in the criminal annals of
America. The exploits of the famous Jesse James gang are not to be compared with the lurid
escape and subsequent pursuit of Harry Tracy across hundreds of miles of unfriendly country. For
daring, fertility of resource, and cold-blooded nerve his fight for liberty against almost impossible
numbers is without a parallel. Hunted by thousands of armed men, with a reward of $8,000 on his
head, dead or alive, Tracy for months defied capture, leaving dead and wounded men behind him
whenever he was hard pressed.
On June 9, 1902, the foundry gang of prisoners at the Salem (Oregon) Penitentiary was marched
to its work as usual by Guards Girard and Ferrell. The convicts were counted in and announced as
all present by Girard. While the words were still on his lips a rifle shot echoed through the yard, and
Ferrell fell forward with a cry of agony. He had been killed by Harry Tracy, a convict, who had
already murdered two men in Colorado and was serving a twenty-years' sentence for burglary along
with an accomplice named David Merrill. Tracy, seconded by his partner in crime, now turned upon
the other guards and began shooting. A life prisoner, Ingram by name, leaped upon Tracy with the
intention of disarming him, but was immediately shot down by Merrill. In the confusion the two
desperate men scaled the prison walls by means of a ladder which they found near at hand. Once
over they turned their attention to the fence guards. S. R. Jones, patrolling the northwest corner of
the stockade, fell, pierced by two bullets. Another guard, Duncan Ross, was wounded. Guard
Tiffany emptied his rifle at the men but failed to hit his mark. He was himself wounded and fell from
the wall to the ground, where he was picked up by the two escaping prisoners, who calmly used him
as a shield while they retreated to the woods. At the edge of the forest they shot him, took his rifle,
and disappeared into the underbrush.
Tracy and Merrill were well armed with short Winchesters, which it is thought must have been
secretly supplied to them by sympathizers who visited the prison in the guise of excursionists. They
had already killed three men in order to escape, and while at liberty were a menace to the
community. So an urgent call was sent for assistance. Sheriff Durbin, with a heavily armed posse,
immediately answered the telephone message sent him, and appeared at the prison to assist
Superintendent Lee, of the penitentiary, in recapturing the escaped convicts.
The two criminals, however, managed to elude pursuit during the whole day, and under cover of
night passed through Salem. Here they held up a man named J. W. Stewart, made him disrobe, and
took his clothing. Later an expressman named Welch discarded, at their orders, an overcoat and a
pair of overalls; and the stable of one Felix Labaucher furnished them with two fast horses. One
notable fact in the escape of the desperado Tracy is the fear which he somehow managed to instil
into the minds of the hardy frontiersmen among whom he lived for the next two months, and which
stood him in good stead on many occasions when he was hard pressed.
Bloodhounds sent down from the Washington State Penitentiary followed the scent of the fugitives
for some time, but finally lost it. The pair were seen next morning at Brooks, a station on the
Southern Pacific Railway eight mlles north of Salem. During the night they had found it necessary to
get rid of their horses. On June 11th the two men were surrounded by a posse of fifty men near
Gervais. They were still on the line of the Southern Pacific and were headed north for the State of
Washington via Portland. The couple were known to be exceedingly well armed, for during the night
they had had the audacity to hold up two of the pursuing posse and relieve them of their weapons!
Before noon a hundred men surrounded the woods in which the men lurked. Every man within a
radius of ten miles who possessed a gun was summoned to join the posse, and Company F of the
Oregon State National Guards also arrived upon the scene. A complete cordon surrounded the
apparently doomed men, but during the night the two desperadoes slipped silently through the lines
and escaped.
The escaped prisoners pressed forward to Clackamas County, where Sheriff Cook with a posse
and three companies of militia took up the chase. As they continued north the desperadoes lived on
the country, holding up farms for food and horses as they travelled. They always boldly announced
who they were. A dozen times they were shot at, several times they were surrounded, and once
Tracy fired and winged one of his pursuers. The reward for the capture of the convicts was doubled,
and doubled again, and public excitement grew intense. For five days the sheriff and his posse
continued the chase, and then gave up, weary and discouraged.
Meanwhile, Tracy had forced a farmer at the muzzle of his revolver to row him and his companion
across the Columbia River into Washington. They dined at the house of a farmer named Peedy,
whom they tied and gagged before leaving. Sheriff Marsh, of Clarke County, with a very large force,
took up the chase with energy. A four-cornered duel took place between the fugitives and two of the
posse who came in touch with them, but the convicts again escaped unhurt. For some days after
this episode their trail was completely lost.
It was on July 2d that Tracy reappeared to enact the most stirring scenes of his melodramatic
career. He had been heading for the Puget Sound country, and after holding up a farmer or two for
practice he modestly decided to honour the city of Seattle with a visit. It was early morning, and the
sun was just breaking through the mist and fog that hung over South Bay, near Olympia, the state
capital, when a man entered the tent of an oyster fishery company and ordered Mr. Horatio Alling,
the manager, and his two men to furnish him a meal.
A launch lay at anchor near the tent, and Tracy ordered one of the men to call her captain to
breakfast. The convict waited coolly till Captain Clark and his son had finished breakfast and then
ordered Clark to get up steam at once, as he desired to go to Seattle. Before leaving he tied Mr.
Alling and the cook hand and foot and helped himself to any clothes that took his fancy.
From 1894 till 1898 I had lived near Seattle and at this time I was back there visiting my parents.
Alling had been a very close friend of mine, and his adventure with Tracy stimulated my already
keen interest in the chase. Later, in the capacity of a newspaper correspondent, I saw a good deal
of the men who had charge of the capture of the out- law and was at one time with the posse
(entirely as a pacifist) which operated near Bothell.
During the launch ride to Seattle Tracy remained at one end of the little cabin, his gun resting in his
lap ready for use in case any of the actions of his crew appeared to him suspicious. For twelve
hours the bandit was complete master of the situation. He was easy, unconcerned, and debonair,
ready to joke and to laugh with his unwilling servants, but his steely eyes never relaxed their
vigilance for a moment. Someone asked him where his partner Merrill was.
"Yes, I killed him. He had no nerve and he was a traitor. I read in the Portland papers after our
escape that it was due to information from Merrill that I was caught in the first place--that time I stole
the engine and was knocked senseless by a glancing shot. Merrill had told them where they could
find me. Then, too, he was a coward, always ready to bolt. He was no good. The man was
frightened to death all the time. It made me angry when the papers gave him half the credit for our
escape. I told him he was a coward, and he got huffy. Then we decided to fight a duel when we
were near Chehalis. We were to start, back to back, and walk ten paces each, then wheel round and
begin firing. He haggled so in arranging the terms that I knew he meant to play false. I couldn't trust
him, so when I had taken eight steps I fired over my shoulder. I hit him in the back. The first shot did
not finish him, so I shot again. He only got what he deserved. The fellow meant to kill me
treacherously and steal out of the country through the big timber, leaving my dead body among the
All day Tracy displayed the greatest carelessness in regard to human life. At one time he desired
the captain of the launch to run in close to McNeil's Island, where a government military prison is
located, in order that he might get a pot shot at one of the guards. During the day he dozed slightly
once or twice, but, as his rifle was across his lap and the slightest movement awakened him, the
crew dared not interfere with him. At Meadow Point, near the city of Seattle, Tracy finished his
yachting trip, tied the captain and crew up, and went ashore, forcing one of the terrified men to
accompany him as a guide. The ascendancy this man acquired over everybody he met is
The outlaw headed toward the north end of Lake Washington and was recognized more than once
before he reached Bothell. Here he lay hidden till morning in the dense brush and secured some
much-needed sleep. It was raining hard, but there is no doubt that the escaped convict found shelter
from the storm under some big logs Meanwhile, Seattle was full of wild rumours about Tracy Every
stray tramp was an object of suspicion, and the greatest excitement prevailed among people. Before
night the excitement had increased tenfold. Harry Tracy, it was reported, had come into touch with
two posses, had engaged in battle with them, killed three officers and wounded one, and had
himself escaped unhurt!
Persistent reports came to the city of Tracy's presence near Bothell. It was said that he was
surrounded in a brickyard; that he had several times been definitely identified by men who saw him
skulking in the heavy timber. Sheriff Cudihee, of King County, a fearless and efficient officer who
had a good record for running down criminals, at once ordered posses to the scene and hastened
there himself. It may be stated in passing that from that moment to the time of Tracy's death Sheriff
Cudihee hung doggedly to the trail of the flying bandit. Other sheriffs took up the hunt and dropped it
when the convict had passed out of their bailiwicks, but Cudihee alone followed him like a
bloodhound wherever he went, until the question of Tracy's escape or capture came to bc a
personal issue between Edward Cudihee and Harry Tracy, two of the most fearless and determined
men that ever carried a gun.
At Bothell the posse separated, and every road was guarded. Two officials from Everett, several
from Seattle, and Mr. Louie B. Sefrit, a reporter for the Seattle Times, started down the road toward
Pontiac, part of them following the railway track and part the wagon road. About a hundred yards
southeast of where the railroad track and the wagon road cross again there were two small cabins
standing in a yard which was much overgrown with grass, weeds, and old tree stumps. Three men,
named Williams, Brewer, and Nelson, jumped through a wire fence and started toward the cabins,
while the others went down the track to examine the cabins from that side. Said one Raymond to
Sefrit, the reporter:
He never finished the sentence. From behind the stump arose Tracy himself, his rifle at his
shoulder. There came a flash, and Anderson, one of the deputies, fell. Still another spit of flame
belched from the rifle, and Raymond fell back with a stifled cry. He was quite dead before help
reached him. Sefrit took a shot at the desperado with a Colt's revolver, whereupon Tracy wheeled
and let drive at him. Sefrit, realizing that he was in an exposed position, fell as if shot. The outlaw
fired again at him, then waited watchfully to make sure he had killed his man. A bunch of grass lay
between Sefrit's head and Tracy, but the reporter could see the convict crouching behind the stump
and knew that the slightest movement meant death. So for some minutes the Times reporter lay
there in an agony of suspense, expecting every moment to feel a bullet tearing through his breast.
Then Tracy slowly began to back away in the drenching rain. Two more shots rang out, and Jack
Williams, who had been coming forward from the rear, fell, desperately wounded.
Tracy scudded away in the thick underbrush, and half a mile from the scene of battle relieved a
rancher of a horse he was riding. This he presently discarded, impressing into his service a farmer
named Louis Johnson, with his wagon. He forced the farmer to drive him to Fremont, which is a
suburb of Seattle. By this time the escaped convict was very hungry. He made Johnson hitch his
team to the fence outside the home of Mrs. R. H. Van Horn and then invited himself to dinner. Mrs.
Van Horn at once recognized Tracy from his published photograph.
"Food, madam, and clothing," returned the urbane murderer. It chanced that there was a man
named Butterfield in the house, and from him Tracy coolly took the dry clothing which he wore.
Being in a good humour, the bandit dropped into the kitchen and conversed with Mrs. Van Horn
while she prepared his meal for him.
Nevertheless, she took occasion to nod her head toward the door and whisper the one word
"Tracy" to the boy. He understood, and two minutes later was lashing his horse along the road
toward Fremont. When Tracy rose to depart an hour later Sheriff Cudihee lay in ambush within six
feet of the Johnson wagon.
Tracy thanked Mrs. Van Horn for his meal in courteous fashion, then stepped down the path to the
road with Butterfield and Johnson on either side of him. Meanwhile, the vigilant Sheriff Cudihee lay
in wait for his man near the wagon. As Tracy sauntered down the path the sheriff of King County
covered him every inch of the way with his Winchester. There was just a shadow of doubt in his
mind as to which of the three was the man he wanted. He decided to wait until the outlaw climbed
into the wagon.
The desperado wheeled and fired point-blank. Breece fell over, a dead man. Twice more the
convict fired, this time at Rawley, and the game warden went to the ground mortally wounded. Tracy
dashed through the fence and made for the woods. The sheriff levelled his rifle and fired twice at the
disappearing convict, but owing to the darkness neither shot took effect. Harry Tracy, burglar,
outlaw, and murderer, had again broken through the death trap that had been prepared for him. Had
it not been for the recklessness of interfering officials Cudihee would undoubtedly have caught or
killed his man.
With the curious mania which he had for continually doubling on his tracks Tracy again headed for
Bothell, near which point he held up Farmer Fisher for clothes and provisions. Cornered in a strip of
country not twenty miles square, in the midst of which was a city of one hundred and twenty
thousand population, though three bodies lay in the county morgue to attest his unerring skill and
others lay wounded near to death in the hospitals, yet Harry Tracy still roamed the country like an
Apache, uninjured and untamable. Whenever men bearded him he left a trail of blood behind him in
his relentless flight. He himself condoned his crimes because, as he said, he killed to satisfy no lust
for blood but simply to keep his cherished liberty.
In order to understand how one fearless man was able for so long a time to defy the law, the
nature of the country must be considered. The Puget Sound country was at that time the most
densely timbered on earth. The underbrush is very heavy, and a rank growth of ferns some four feet
high covers the ground like a carpet. A man might slip into the ferns and remain hidden for months
within a dozen yards of the roadside provided the food question were eliminated. The one thing that
Tracy feared was the bloodhounds which were set on his trail, and after he had shot these, his mind
was more at ease.
After holding up another household of Johnsons, Tracy--accompanied by their hired man,
Anderson, whom he forced to attend him as a human pack-horse--doubled back to Seattle by way of
Port Madison. He skirted the city till he came to South Seattle, and then cut around the end of Lake
Washington to Renton. At this point he made himself the uninvited guest of the Jerrolds family.
Walking up from Renton with his unwilling companion, Tracy met Miss May Baker, Mrs. McKinney,
and young Jerrolds picking salmonberries. Tracy stopped them, smiling. "I guess you have heard of
me; I am Tracy," he said; then added, "You needn't be afraid of me. I never harmed a woman in my
life, and I don't intend to begin now."
Talking easily with the women, Tracy walked along to the house, in the rear of which he tied
Anderson to a clump of bushes. He called the Jerrolds boy and handed him two watches, which he
wished sold in order to buy two 45-calibre single-action Colt revolvers and a box of cartridges. He
threatened to kill everybody in the house in case the boy betrayed him, but the lad was no sooner
gone than he told Mrs. Jerrolds that this was mere bluff. This iron-nerved murderer and outlaw
actually shed tears at this point.
Presently Tracy brightened again and was laughing and talking with the three women just as if they
had been old acquaintances. It was nearly time to prepare dinner, and Tracy carried in wood and
volunteered to get the water from the spring. Rifle in hand, he sauntered down to the railroad track
and filled his bucket with water. As he did so a special train, bearing the posse which hunted him,
came round the bend. He ducked into the bushes to let it pass.
"I reckon there are some gentlemen in that train looking for me," he remarked carelessly when he
had reached the house. "I saw a reporter there. They are always in the lead. First you see a
reporter, then a cloud of dust, and alter a while the deputies. It's the interviewer I'm afraid of!" And
he laughed.
There was much gay talk and laughter during the meal which followed, in which Tracy took the
lead. His repartee was apt and spirited, and his sallies were irresistible. The Jerrolds boy had
informed the sheriff's officer of Tracy's whereabouts long ago, and by this time the deputies were
beginning to surround the house. Everybody was alarmed save the outlaw himself. He strolled to the
window and looked out at an enterprising photographer who was trying to take a picture of the
As the day wore on the deputies gathered thicker and thicker around the house, cautiously drawing
closer and closer, for they knew that the outlaw was a dead shot. Finally Tracy concluded that he
had better be going. From his Chesterfieldian manner he might have been bidding his hostess
good-bye after some elaborate function. From the back doorstep he waved them all a merry good
day and wished them all manner of luck. As it happened, just at that moment poor Anderson had
been discovered tied to a tree. One of the deputies gave a shout, and the others crowded round to
see what was the matter. In the excitement Tracy quietly slipped down to the river and disappeared!
Day after day the chase after this extraordinary man continued. Hundreds of men beat the woods
and patrolled the roads in vain. Once Tracy was wounded, but managed to keep under cover until
he was again able to travel. He played hide-and-seek with the officers of King County for weeks,
then suddenly broke away for the Cascades on horseback. Weeks later he turned up in eastern
Washington en route for his old stamping ground, the "Hole-in-the-Wall" country. More than once his
fondness for loitering for days in the same spot showed itself. His effrontery knew no bounds. At one
place he made use of the telephone to call up a sheriff in order to tease him about his ill-success in
capturing Tracy. Before he left, however, he gave the poor official one grain of consolation. "You've
done better than the other sheriffs," he said. "You've talked with the man you want, anyway.
Good-bye; I'm afraid you won't see me again."
But he did. Eastern Washington does not afford any such hiding ground as the big forests of the
western part of the state. From point to point the telephone handed on the message that Tracy had
just passed. He doubled here, there, and everywhere; but he could not shake off his relentless
pursuers, aided as they were by the telephone wires. Sheriff Cudihee, now thoroughly aroused,
swore never to leave the chase till Tracy was taken. Sheriffs Gardner and Doust and Cudihee held
the passes and closed in on him.
Tracy had reached the rough country south of the Colville Indian reservation. He had become
gaunt as an ill-fed wolf. Hunger, cold, and exposure have tamed more bad men than fear. They sap
the physical well-being which in some men is the spring of courage. But they did not affect the iron
nerve of his man. He was still as savage and as dangerous as on the day when he broke out of the
penitentiary. For two days and nights the outlaw hung around the Eddy ranch, not far from Creston,
until a young man who saw him there raced with the news to Sheriff Gardner, who hastened to the
scene at once.
Meanwhile, a party of five citizens of Creston, which is in Lincoln County, stopped forever the evil
career of the man who had travelled four hundred miles and baffled thousands of pursuers. C. C.
Straub, deputy sheriff, Dr. E. C. Lanter, Maurice Smith, attorney, J. J. Morrison, section foreman,
and Frank Lillen Green, all armed to the teeth, proceeded to the ranch of Mr. L. B. Eddy, where the
outlaw was known to be in hiding. The country thereabout is very rocky, and the party took every
care not to be caught in an ambush. They saw Farmer Eddy mowing his hay, and while talking with
him observed a strange man emerge from the barn.
Like a flash Tracy jumped behind Eddy and the team and bade the terrified farmer lead the horses
to the barn. When near the door he made a break to reach his rifle. A moment later he reappeared,
rifle in hand, and started headlong down the valley. Again his iron nerve had brought him out of an
apparently certain trap. Two shots he fired at his pursuers, but neither of them had effect
The man hunters took up the chase at once. Tracy dodged behind a rock and began firing rapidly.
It was growing dark, however, and he missed his men. Then he made a dash for a wheat field near
at hand, the officers firing at him as he, ran. Suddenly he stumbled and fell on his face, but dragged
himself on hands and knees into the field. He had been hit.
Sheriff Gardner and his posse now arrived on the scene and surrounded the field. Presently a
single shot was heard by the watchers. That shot sent the notorious bandit into eternity. In the early
morning the cordon cautiously worked its way into the field and presently stumbled upon Harry
Tracy's lifeless body. The most famous man hunt in the history of the country had ended. Crippled
and bleeding, hopeless of escape, the bandit had shot himself sooner than let himself be taken.
After escaping from a dozen sheriffs, slipping cleverly out of death trap after death trap, and
leaving behind him everywhere a trail of blood that would not have discredited an Apache chief,
Tracy fell at last by his own hand rather than lose the liberty which he apparently prized more than
life itself.
I went to get tested because someone with whom I’d had sex with contacted me to say he’d
recently tested positive. He had been a risk - the condom split and in a moment of weakness we
carried on anyway. He advised me to go and get tested myself. So it was on the back of him getting
a positive diagnosis just through routine testing, and for me the diagnosis was unexpected and out
of the blue. I was 27 at the time.
I went for my test knowing I had been at risk and this experience was tiring and stressful. When I got
tested the staff at the sexual health clinic were kind, helpful and accommodating - sympathy and
advice, not judgement. They were pretty clear about the level of risk that I had. They made it clear
that it was not guaranteed that I would become positive, but that I had been exposed by someone
who had recently contracted HIV so that makes it a higher risk since the virus in their body is at high
I felt a sinking dread at the point of diagnosis, I had been tested on a Friday so had the whole
weekend to stress and worry about the results. At the end of the day on the Monday I called the
clinic and asked for results over the phone. I felt that (thankfully rare) woeful feeling when
you’ve spent lots and lots of time imagining every scenario, good and bad and it happened to be
worst suspicions confirmed.
So, it wasn’t a surprise really, I had geared myself up for it but it was still a shock. It wasn’t
a slam-in-your-face shock since I’d had so much time thinking about possibilities, but it did still
feel quite shocking and quite a bit of bewilderment. It was like, “Okay. What do I do next? I
don’t know what to do or how to feel or how to go through this―
Health care has been absolutely fantastic. People bitch and moan about the NHS all the time but I
have had nothing but positive experiences when dealing with my sexual health care and all the other
bits-and-bobs that have been going on with my health; even referrals to GPs and things like that.
Whether it has been my imagination or whether it is the case I think the GP seems to pay a bit more
attention to me now than they did before. Everyone else has been willing to go to the extra mile,
whereas before it might have been, “Come back another time― or “take two Asprin and
see how it’s going― everyone seems to be more, “sit down and lets get to the bottom of
this―, paying attention to what I say.
It felt quite good to be able to get it off my chest and talk about it. Every time I was able to talk to
someone new about it, it was going over the feelings & thoughts again for me and iterating through
dealing with it, exploring how I felt about it, it felt like each time I was able to process and get to
grips with it a little bit more.
Telling my partner, whom I met not long after being diagnosed was a strange and different
experience. I umm-ed and arr-ed and worried about it, and spoke to some support agencies for
advice, because it was not something I had thought I would have to deal with so soon after being
diagnosed. I thought it would be something that would be far off in the distance, not months after
being diagnosed, but I seemed to be plunged in head first.
Telling him was actually really good and rather unexpected. I had imagined and anticipated a lot of
scenarios including questions that he might ask and how he might take it, but when I did tell him, his
biggest question and concern was for my health, not about the risk to him but all about me. I
hadn’t anticipated or expected that at all, so it was really sweet, kind and disarming to be able to
say “I’m fine and I’m not going to drop dead any minute―
I guess that condoms are more on my mind than they once were. I am a bit ‘Captain
Contingency’ so I have to always have condoms & lube there ready, just in case. I guess I think
about it more, but I’m probably no more extra prepared than I used to be. I have always been
quite good at remembering condoms and being prepared. I am looking forward to trying out a whole
range of condoms, I didn’t realise until after diagnosis just how many options there are.
It no longer feels scary or frightening, but feels like a background responsibility in the same way
unfinished work or unwashed dishes do; something that is always just in the back of your mind as a
very low-level burden, demanding occasional attention. It feels like an extra responsibility that
I’ve taken on (and will have to consider to some degree every day for the rest of my life); while
it’s not a huge stress and doesn’t demand all my focus all the time, the fact that the
consequences (to me or someone I care about) are potentially so major means that when an
HIV-related situation (health, sex life) does crop up, I do properly think about it.
It feels like I now have one strike against my health; HIV won’t kill me, and the next serious or
long-term condition I’m faced with probably won’t either. But it might give me a second
strike against my body, and then there really will be no more safety net. I can’t feel complacent
about my health, or risk pushing my body too hard anymore, because I don’t have that spare
strike to spend that most of my friends do... becoming diabetic or contracting hepatitis-C would be
serious but manageable for them, it would be very dangerous for me.
When I was diagnosed I was single and decided that it would be easier if I had a partner who also
had HIV. I looked on the internet and found several dating sites specifically for HIV sufferers, and
have met several people through these sites. Some of these became partners, some of these long
term friends.
When I was told I was HIV I didn’t react in any way as I was expecting it to happen, and I just
carried on with my life in the best way I could. My initial thought was ‘ Well I was expecting
that’, so it was no surprise. I was sad of course, but all I could do was carry on as normal, the
best I could and do as my doctor at the sexual health clinic asked me to do regarding taking meds
As for my brother and his partner they guessed I was HIV although I have never confirmed it to
them. They were very cutting and spiteful and me and mum and have cut them out of our lives for
three years meaning that mum never got to see her grandchildren. My brother is back in our lives
now, he has a new partner and life is good, we get on well and HIV has never been spoken about
I have been very lucky as I have never had any problems with my medication. I have never had any
side effects, I am one of the few people I know who hasn’t. I have never missed taking my meds
nor have I ever missed an appointment at my HIV clinic. It is very important not to. I do as I am told
by my HIV doctor and I carry on as normal.
My GP also knows and they are fine about it. They were pleased I told them just in case they
prescribed any drugs that might interfere with my HIV Meds. I think I get appointments more or less
straight away with my GP. I don’t know if my name flags up on their system, but I can call in a
morning and get an appointment in the afternoon which is great.
The first time I got the meds I read the leaflets inside and thought, ‘Why would you possibly want
to take these tablets that could possibly make you feel 10 times worse than you already are feeling
now?’ and I nearly didn’t take them at all. It was my siblings who said to me ignore the
leaflets and take the meds. Initially I was unwell for about a month of taking them, feeling sick and
tired but that soon passed. Compared to how some people have reacted to their meds it was
nothing really.
In 1990 I got tested for HIV at a sexual health clinic in Fulham. I had been working in Zambia and
had a brief affair with a man I worked with. At the age of 18 I was told I could not have children, so I
had never asked a man to wear a condom. I didn’t know how to ask the Zambian man to wear
one, plus he looked healthy and I naively thought HIV was more a problem for gay men.
When I phoned to get my test results, I was told I had to go to the clinic. I immediately knew it was
not looking good. The clinic were very kind, they told me I probably had eight years to live if I looked
after my health, gave me a leaflet and the number of Positively Women. The next day I went back to
work but I never felt the same again. For a while I felt very separate from the world around me, I was
suddenly an outsider. And although it has since become part of who I am, the burden of secrecy and
stigma means that I can never return to the me I was before that day in the Fulham clinic.
Last year I had to come off meds for six months. I felt vulnerable, anxious and unwell. My viral load
shot up and made me feel ill. It is the only time I have felt unsupported by GUM. But my consultant
and the clinical nurse have been wonderful. I have become so used to the relationship they have
built with me,that I was taken aback by the impersonal nature of clinical reviews that I have
experienced in other hospital departments.
I was 26 at the time that I got tested and living in Brighton. My boyfriend was away on a trip at the
time I got tested. It wasn’t a shock to me at the time because my partner had been recently
diagnosed with HIV. I just went down to the beach, it was a lovely day. I stood there taking
photographs of the sea and the sky. I thought “That’s it; I’m going to die. I’m not
going to have a future―.
The first medications were terrible. I was fit and toned and muscular at the time and the medications
stripped me of my body. I got peripheral neuropathy in my hands and feet. I started to walk funny
and I would fall down the stairs. I had diarrhoea, weight loss and I couldn’t sleep. I went to see a
neurologist and decided to take a break from the medication.
I had about one and a half years off work as a result of the side effects to the medication alone.
After I became more stable my health improved and I was able to return to work. However, I
suffered from nerve damage. The first three years were really negative. Now I am stable I feel like I
have a future, like my life has been extended.
The irony is that I mucked up the treatment as soon as I started it. I was taking the wrong pills at the
wrong times. The side effects were interesting; it was like I was drunk for two hours every time I took
them. This went on for a couple of weeks too. I still have very vivid dreams (which I don’t mind
at all) and I used to get diarrhoea sometimes too, but since I quit smoking and changed my diet
it’s all fine now. Luckily I’ve had no other side effects.
It was 2004 when I got tested. I had gone along because I had an NSU and when I was at the clinic
they asked me when the last time I had been tested, it had been a few years, so they suggested that
I got tested. It seemed to make sense to do it. And funnily enough I almost knew, I had like a second
sight about it. My partner at the time even came with me for the results which they didn’t
normally do, and I got called into the room and it almost felt like a death sentence really. I still can
remember friends die from HIV. Really my knowledge of HIV was still in that vain that it was a death
sentence. I hadn’t really kept up to date with my education, the latest med or anything like that.
So the only thing in my mind was ‘this is it!’. My partner was then called in the room and it all
felt a bit clinical at the time. The person that gave the results said, ‘you will be seeing a lot of
us’ and one thing they said at the time which really sticks out was ‘get a good dentist’,
which seemed bizarre at the time.
I remember going for a drink at Gun Warf in Portsmouth and me and my partner looking out over the
water and being very tearful about it and my partner saying ‘What am I going to do without
you?’ I was trying to be upbeat about it and saying it is not what it used to be, but all the time
feeling that ‘this is it’.
I feel very different now, HIV changed a lot of things for me. It changed my relationship, I had been
in a long term relationship for 15 years when I got diagnosed. We went on for another 4 or 5 years
after my diagnosis but the relationship really changed because my partner and I suppose something
changed for us. We had an open relationship but I guess I had over stepped a mark.
I was in the vain that all the time I was not taking medication everything would be fine and that I
could just keep going on not taking medication. When I eventually had to start, that was another
watershed in so many ways. Saying that, I didn’t have any bad reactions (excessively) with the
medication and very quickly my viral load became undetectable and CD4 was 500 plus. I have
always been very good with taking my medication, my adherence has always been around 100%
I had a bad experience with my dentist to be honest with you. I made a decision to tell all my health
care providers, my GP was superb, just so supportive. The dentist was ok, but I always had to have
the last appointment, which got up my nose a bit really, because it was sometimes difficult to have to
have the last appointment of the day. I just thought, ‘Hang on a second; I have declared to you,
you know about my status, exactly my circumstance. There are people out there you are treating
who don’t know that but you are singling me out for preferential treatment’. I just
couldn’t understand that because they should be treating everyone else the same, but you just
have to go along with that. I have subsequently changed dentists, they know the score and they
don’t treat me any different, so that was the only negative thing that has happened to me.
It was an immense relief to tell my children. They are old enough to understand, they were in their
20s when I told them. They were great. My daughter doesn’t ask all the time but asks if I am
okay and they are always there really. I have no regrets about telling them and just felt I had to, just
in case anything happened and then at least they could understand.
I decided not to tell my parents because they are quite elderly. My mother died about 4 years ago
and she never knew. My father may have got a suspicion because he knows I go to the hospital
every 3 months and has seen the big bag of meds that I get, but he doesn’t ask and I think
it’s best that way.
Trading in your sports coupe for a minivan was bad enough, but nothing says “I’m an
adult now” like buying insurance. No, it’s not fun to think about the disasters that
could befall you, but for anyone with a family or property to protect, insurance is a necessity. The
good news is that a few minutes of preparation can save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars
in premiums. Read on to find out how.
A much better name for life insurance would be income replacement insurance, because its main
function is to provide for people who once relied on your income after your death. If you have kids or
a spouse or a business partner who depend on your earnings, you need insurance. On the other
hand, if you’re not supporting anyone else, you don’t. Children definitely
don’t need insurance on their own lives.
If you do need life insurance, shop around. Compare quotes at, or, and always buy from a broker, who represents several insurance firms, so you can
compare prices. Keep in mind that the premiums that different insurance companies charge for the
same coverage can vary tremendously. For instance, 10-year term policies for $500,000 of
insurance for a 35-year old male smoker in Ontario have annual premiums ranging from just over
$500 to more than $1,000, depending on which insurer you choose.
You’re wasting money if you buy more insurance than you need, so think about how much
you contribute, after taxes, to your family’s income. You should buy enough insurance to
replace about 75% of your lost income, plus a bit extra for funeral expenses and legal fees. For
instance, if you figure your take-home pay is $60,000 after taxes, you’ll want to leave a lump
sum that could supply your family with an annual income of about $45,000 for however many years
you think appropriate. How many years should that be? It depends on how old your kids are and
your spouse’s job situation. There’s no single answer that fits every situation, so talk
matters over with your spouse before settling on a figure.
When you head out to get quotes, ignore the insurance company’s pitch for complicated
whole- and universal-life policies. These add a savings or investment element to your insurance, but
are only appropriate in special cases. Instead, stick to renewable term life insurance, says William
McLeod, author and insurance expert. Often, he says, combining your investing with your insurance
leaves you vulnerable to large, hidden fees. “Under no circumstances should you buy a
whole-life policy, and universal life is only appropriate in rare cases,” he says.
“It’s usually only for people who are in their 50s or older.”
You can often find good deals on home and auto insurance through university alumni associations,
says McLeod. Engineers, teachers and other professionals can also get breaks through their
professional associations. If you don’t qualify for such plans, check out quotes at and from a good independent broker. Sometimes you can negotiate a cheaper
bundled rate if one company provides both your house and car insurance. And you can reduce your
rates even more by raising your deductible — it’s not unusual to reduce premiums by 25%
or more by raising the deductible to $5,000 from $500. If your car’s not worth much, you
could drop collision and comprehensive insurance altogether.
Supplementary health insurance pays for medical bills the government doesn’t cover, such
as prescription drugs, dentist visits, glasses and care outside your home province. If you
can’t get this coverage at work and you’re not covered by your spouse’s
plan, you still may be able to get a group rate through your alumni or professional organization. If
you decide to get your own coverage, be prepared for sticker shock — these plans are expensive.
But you can lower your premiums by choosing a plan with a higher deductible.
Disability insurance, which covers you in event of disabling injury or illness, is important but often
overlooked. Most people get disability insurance through work. If you don’t, says Bruce
Cohen, author of The Money Adviser, you should arrange your own. “Disability insurance is
even more important than life insurance,” he says. “Statistically, you’re more
likely to suffer a disability early than you are to die early.”

“The course enabled me to clearly see what obstacles I am bringing into my life, and gave me a
variety of tools to empower myself to live an authentic life, and choose the experiences. I
appreciated the variety of ways to immerse myself in the course, and practice the skills with mind,
body and soul. I felt challenged to step out of my limited perceptions and assumptions, and I felt
compassionately guided by David, Nitai and Scott. The experience allowed me to see the common
goodness and sincere appreciation of participants, and gave me a safe space to give up a false
sense of being alienated from fellow humans. I recovered my sense of trusting. Thank you! Thank
you! Thank you!―
“Satvatove 3 is comprised of awesome exercises, deep spiritual truths, and tools to create
mental peace. I got immense value from this course. Much of what I have gained from it is a
progression of aspects of myself which I have been fostering for some time. I feel I now have the
most established and tangible sense of peace with myself and gratitude for my lot, that I have ever
had. Since the Satvatove 3 course, life has brought me a couple of disturbances, things which
before would have bothered me for some time; and I found I was able to completely move on from
these and return to happiness, gratitude and peace, very quickly. It is as if my innate being has
become set in a higher level of awareness and appreciation.”
“I found the Satvatove 3-Day Foundational Course to be one of the most positive and
empowering experiences in my life. I cannot put a price or real words to the value of welcoming the
core principles of the Satvatove Institute into my life and I deeply thank you for sharing your
knowledge so generously.
“I really enjoyed the Satvatove Foundational Course. I found myself at various times inspired,
awed, moved and transformed. Sometimes I felt all of those emotions at the same time. I walk away
from this building (to start the “actual seminar―) a lighter, clearer, more engaged person. I feel
very privileged to have met the 14 participants and to have had the opportunity to learn and be
inspired by the founder of this program, David Wolf. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to be
part of this wonderful process.―
“Right now, I have to say I feel like I need a hot bath and a good cry! This weekend has been
incredible and not always happy happy. I was shown a lot about my character, my rackets, and lack
of backbone and it wasn’t always pretty, but I appreciate the mirror. This is why I came- to face
my junkyard of broken agreements, get rid of my defensive armour and dance in the field of
heavenly abundance! I have made a few commitments that I know I will keep, one being deepening
relationships and the other, my career path that I have been procrastinating on for months. From
now on, my Be-Do-Have is I am happy, creating consciousness-raising events, and have a full,
meaningful, amazing life! Much love, Lisa―
“I have come to so many realizations through this course- I will try to list the more profound. I
have been struggling with stress in my life for what seems like always, and most recently have been
trying to find some way to combat it besides ulcer medication. When David suggested stress was
nothing more than a crutch- to help stave off others increasing the demands on my time, also that it
may be a way to deal with and feel important in life- it was like someone turned on a light- I now
have a handle on how to deal with it and eventually I will overcome it, sooner rather than later.
……The second realization was how I had been holding on to a broken promise and anger- I
believe now thanks to this course I will not only be a better communicator but also a better person.
Thank you!―
“Thankful! I am so very thankful and appreciative that I came to the Satvatove Seminar this
weekend! It seems some (a few) realizations have slapped me hard across the face! I’m aware
there are more to come and I am afraid and excited at the same time. In various processes I
realized false perceptions of myself, society, organized religion, and family. Through these three
days I dropped so much resentment that I wasn’t even aware I was carrying. I am excited to
take the Foundational Course again! Thank you so very much for showing me the tools and
demonstrating how to use them!―
“I had several personal realizations throughout the course but there is one in particular I care to
share. I came into the course with what I thought was an open mind but which in fact was full of
skepticism. By giving me the space to be angry with you, I was able to confront my own limiting
beliefs that I have used as a protection mechanism. I feel that the confronting of these beliefs in the
class is part of the necessary process by which I will be able to make deeper and fuller connections
with others. Thank you.―
“Most involving and transformational course I have ever taken. I realized how much magnificent
capacity I have to express myself in a myriad of ways. Also I realized how connected I feel, to myself
and others, when I truly choose to be open in my communication with others. I feel enlivened and
realize at the core of my being that I can choose to connect to my essence. I have breathed into the
possibility of being in a life of love and importance. I see how lack of unconditional self love has
been stopping me and I have connected to loving myself and expressing myself unconditionally in
this course. …..I also realize the power of the spoken work and the commitments we make to
“My realizations are so many. To start, I have the power to let go anything that has caused me
any damage in my life. I created my lie and everything that happens in it. I’ve realized that
where there’s a will, there’s a way. I am capable of forgiving, and I am more than willing to
do it. …I have realized that I can connect and communicate with everyone I know in a deep
way….I’ve realized that if I am, then I do and then I have. Nothing can keep me from being
happy, successful, safe, reliable, trustworthy….I’ve realized that I can keep my promises to
myself and that will make me stronger and my confidence levels will go up…I’ve realized that
warmth, empathy and genuineness are more important than any degrees I have.―
“David had the ‘sight’ to see into an aspect of a disowned part of myself and confronted
me on it, helping me to realize something that I had cast into my shadow. David also, through his
astuteness, tuned into how I was using transcendental ideas to deflect painful realities for myself.
The way I see it is that David handed me a pin and helped me to see the inflated spiritual ego
bubble I had wrapped myself in and then presented me with the opportunity to pop the bubble. This
occurred in a demonstration to the group where he used empathic listening and mirrored back to me
my own emotions and words. It was life-changing to see this divide between the spiritual ideals that I
want to govern my experience and where I’m at. It was very valuable to see where I am at in
several ways on my healing journey. I also now see myself as competent to communicate with
people in emotionally heightened or distressed states, which I didn’t prior to the course.
Profoundly life changing!―
“It was a wonderful course. The content was enlightening, the exercises inspiring. I have done
similar work in group therapy sessions but the careful scaffolding of exercises, the clean and
concise explanations, the examples, each step of the seminar is so well conceived that I felt I was
able, in 3 days, to surpass the 3 years of progress in other contexts…..this course helped me move
beyond a plateau I’d been on for a while. Thank you.―
“…I have identified areas of my life where I must give greater attention- communication, pulling
weeds, being sattvic = BEING…….I experienced transformation- FOR SURE and I am totally
stoked to do it beyond this wonderful intentional community….I have found greater stillness,
gentleness and preciseness in my communication….I am no longer afraid to feel my pain…I have
seen my own light again…I want to experience profound connection with others and with my own
spirit….Thank you, David. I was and am inspired by your skilled teaching, inspired techniques and
your quiet radiance. Your smile is wonderful!―
“Satvatove 3 is a beautiful experience, one that I wish for everyone to get a chance to
experience. It is a proof that God exists, that Spirit exists, that we are Spirit, that life force is within
us, waiting to unfold itself, urging us to sing and dance through life, eager to spill itself out and
create a joyful experience of life.―
“I learned so much about myself through my experiences in the Satvatove Advanced course. I
was able to look deeply and honestly at the deep, dark places that have been causing me to live my
life in fear. I connected with sadness, trauma and anger. I had insights about my feelings and
actions that I hadn’t been aware of before. I was able to accept who I am and what I feel – to
accept and forgive myself. I am incredibly grateful for Satvatove for essentially helping me to find a
new invigoration for life.―
“My experience at the Satvatove Foundational Seminar this weekend was profound. I became
aware that spiritual concepts can actually become a box in which ego can hide. David helped me
open this box and find more baggage located inside. I decided from then on to approach the
weekend from a human perspective instead of from a spiritually knowledgeable perspective which in
turn opened up more doors than expected. Insights are too many to write. The course is extremely
effective. Thank you.―
“I have received more insight and clarity into myself and who I am. I feel more grounded and
confident to speak my truth in any situation. I have acquired the communication skills I have only
dreamt of for so long. There is a richness and depth in my personal life that is without price. I feel
more open-hearted and less fearful to speak what’s on my mind. “
“Realisations were very numerous. To keep things brief, I was not helping myself or the
people I love. I was not a very good community member, and I found that out very quickly. This is a
good beginning, and I am very grateful I even took these small baby steps towards being a better
wife, daughter, mother, friend. I fully expect and hope to take this experience into the rest of my lifeall the good and the bad. It will change the tone of all my future interactions for the better and for
that I am deeply grateful.”
“Powerful experience! I found it very productive to find out who I am as a person and clear
out many of the blocks I am experiencing in my life. I feel like I have some very useful tools now and
a real experience of how to apply transformational communication. I’ve never taken a course
quite like this before and I was hesitant to take this one, but very glad I did!”
“I have taken all of the Satvatove courses, been involved in a Life Mastery Program, and am
also attending the Life Apprentiship program in the fall. Of all the courses, Satvatove 3 was the most
impactful for me. I feel that I walked away from that course a totally different human being with a
whole new perspective on life. I was finally able to grasp the true concept of what taking full
responsibility for my life meant. I was finally able to detach from my expectations that I held for
certain loved ones in my life. I was able to look upon a situation and clearly detach the emotion from
the reality of what was going on and then clearly and responsibly choose how I am going to react.
Now, I live in higher state of ‘God consciousness’ and remembering how I co create
everything in my life. I am fully responsible for the results in my life. I highly recommend this course
to everyone I know. I want to take it again. It integrates much of the knowledge from the other
courses, but it still impacted me tremendously beyond what I ever thought. It was a beautiful gift to
my soul, my emotional well being, and it has helped my life in every single area. I encourage you
also to give yourself this gift.”
“Satvatove 3 has inspired me in ways that I did not know were possible. I have been
involved with Satvatove programs for several years and am now building my own client base.
Satvatove 3 has given me a huge boost in my effectiveness as a coach and facilitator. I am truly
astounded with the value I received taking this course. During the course I touched a part of myself
that brings so much more to my life. I am a richer and wiser person with deeper compassion.
“I went into Satvatove 3 full of anger and rage in regards to a personal situation in my life.
This was an issue I had been struggling with for months. Within 3 days it had completely gone and I
no longer carry the burden of that hate, it literally vanished overnight. I am now friends with the
person again and we now laugh and smile together.”
“Thank you for this experience! It allowed me and my brother to face our business in a clear
and conscious way. It allowed me to be a witness and to be witnessed in a sacred space… It
helped me to find my voice and to deepen my relationships to strangers and old friends. It
strengthened my confidence in being able to face any challenge or obstacle. I began to touch the
truth of what empowerment means. I learned about the power of keeping agreements… I
realized that I am my only obstacle to true self-exploration… Thank you for all that you have given
“I am grateful to David Wolf for his honest work, well designed, and motivated by only one
thing, the well being of others. I have a picture in my mind of a teacher that teaches you to fly with
your own wings and once you are ready, happily encourages you to continue to fly on your own, in
your own space, on your own way. Thank you very much.”
“This course has been for me an unforgettable experience. I really loved it. I was impressed
by the joyful and serious atmosphere. Some persons that I think I know since 15 or 20 years or more
and I discovered them anew as there was no more barriers of false identification. I saw many
participants endeavoring to reveal themselves with simplicity. That’s it. This course is helping us
to develop that spiritual quality, simplicity. Thank you from the core of my heart.”
“The Foundational Seminar, for me, this time was both humbling and very enriching. I feel I
could take it ten times and continue to benefit every time. This has helped me feel stronger and
more rooted in my path. The more I use and commit to this communication, awareness , and
accountability practice ; the more connected I feel to myself. For this amazing gift, I wish to share my
deepest appreciation and gratitude for your work and the opportunity to be a part of it. Thank
“The first thing I would like to say is that I have attended personal growth and transformational
seminars all over the country for the last thirteen years of life and nothing has touched me so deeply
or assisted me so quickly in discovering deeply embedded patterns and also offering the tools or
‘the way out’…thanks for changing my life. I have never encountered anything
like Satvatove before. How powerful. Thank you.―
“Thank you and your staff members for leading us through this seminar very successfully. I
felt really cared for and it was done professionally but it didn’t interfere with the feeling that you
are doing this seminar as a service to all of us. This seminar is the best start and foundation for
future good communication and relationships even with God. Thank you”
“This course has expanded my ability to express myself and truly helped me uncover why I
am so valuable. I can listen with full intention of hearing in a place that suspends judgements and
allows people to be comfortable … I have and continue to make many realizations in my life
that are continually helping me connect with who I truly am.”
“My experience of the Advanced Seminar was, to say the least, life changing. I am extremely
grateful to David for putting the seminar experience together, because it impacted my life in such a
remarkable way… I feel much more in integrity with myself, and everyone around me, and
it’s a great feeling.”
“Thank you very much for having this seminar. It was a dynamic change in my way of
thinking, in my realisation, and in my dealings with friends and family. Although my English is very
poor still these processes that I learned in the seminar dynamically worked for my wife and me. Now
I have strength to keep my promise and am conscious of myself being sat cit ananda”
“Enlightening! I don’t recall having so much positiveness – nothing is impossible any
more. I went through some hard moments and sometimes felt angry at David. But when the exercise
was done, my heart flooded with gratefulness … I commit to not turning back to my old habits of
self-denial and negativity. From the core of my heart, from my guts – thank you.―
“Thank you very much to all the staff, and especially to David, for helping me to see and unlock
sides of myself I had not been aware of. This was truly a life-enriching experience for me and
I’m very excited to go deeper, look deeper, relate deeper in a truer genuine way. I feel I
have some very brilliant tools to help me in many aspects of my life and the life of others.―
“There are not words to express my thankfulness. Taking the advanced seminar has made an
amazing change in me. I feel awake and aware of myself; even if it is dark, I see hope. I feel open to
challenge and ready to fight. I appreciate so very much your kindness and support. I feel more
connected. I am very thankful for all of you. I feel I’m back from under the rug. I feel rescued
and ready to face the future.”
“I came to the Advanced Seminar knowing something was missing in my life – and
left knowing what it was: ME! Satvatove allowed me to clear space for mySELF, and experience the
wonder, power and peace of my own being. I am glad to say that I underestimated Satvatove
– being who I am now is thanks to my courage and the facilitators expertise.
“The key realization, which was a theme to the rest of my realizations and experience, was
my understanding of self-worth. In the seminar I was able to get all I wanted just by being myself. I
was able to find a new-found confidence and trust that allowed me to be more accepting of
situations and of how I handle those situations. This new feeling of acceptance allows me to feel
more at peace and that is something I’ve been struggling to find for a while – until
“The Advanced Seminar helped me learn how to take responsibility for everything I do and
how to build relationships that will last forever. It opened me up to myself in such a way that made
me realize that I was living/experiencing life only at 50%. Now I am choosing to live my life
“I am so grateful for the opportunity Satvatove provided me to connect with my true authentic
self. The self realizations that have occurred have been so powerful and I feel my life has
transformed. I will choose to embrace the awareness I have gained and to go further into my own
self growth forever. Life is awesome.”
“Thank you again for designing the Satvatove Advanced course. It really allowed me to get in
touch with myself. Allowing me to communicate and understand others around me in a far deeper
and richer way. I have already used some of the tools in my communication with my partner and
understand where she is coming from and what she is saying.―
“It has catalyzed my being more the master and source of my experience: what I might call the
freedom and creativity arising from taking responsibility for my life… I felt empowered and
encouraged, respectfully, lovingly and firmly, to go beyond where I’d been; to be the leader I
want to be; the creator and master of my own results… The name of the seminar, “An
Adventure in Conscious Living―, suits it to the “T―. I got new tools – and experiences
of applying them – that will serve me the rest of my life!―
“I realized that some people view me as not being fully present all the time, which is kind of true,
but I didn’t know that I was revealing that to people. I also realized that I definitely have a long
way to go to where I want to be, but I’m ready for the journey. I learned a lot about
communication and the things possible. I also realized that I have a good head on my shoulders and
that I can go places with my life that I haven’t even imagined possible. A process on the second
day of the seminar was awesome and I realized that I sometimes let other people lead me down the
path I don’t want to go.―
“This seminar exceeded all of my expectations and I left feeling complete, peaceful, fully
satisfied and deeply connected to myself and my eternal relationship with God. I experienced
resisting in the beginning, and through that experience, finding my grounded self and where I really
stand. My overall experience was one of watering my creeper of divine devotion and nurturing my
soul deeply. I noticed that many subtle weeds were removed without even putting energy towards
them. I left with a newfound urgency to live my life on purpose.―
“In this course I realized many things about myself that I was keeping deep inside, or that I know
but didn’t really want to face or name. I mostly learned about my “dark side”,
the things that I couldn’t be proud to say I have, I learned about my deepest fears, and
where they are really coming from. I learned about my desires in life, my hopes and my dreams. I
also learned how to look at life from the positive side and how much the thoughts I have or the way I
see things influence the way my life will manifest, turn out to be. I learned that I am a pure, powerful,
beautiful person who has full power and control over her life and there is nothing and nobody to
“I really appreciated the very practical skills that were taught about empathic listening,
communication skills and building effective relationships. Normally I don’t like emotional
processing. However I was able to get in touch with deep emotions during the broken promises
exercise. This was quite a turning point for me… It is the first time I have come across such a
universal programme that works for both people on a spiritual quest and also corporate
“To retake the Foundational Seminar was an extremely valuable experience for me and
I’d like to thank you for this opportunity. I didn’t think it would be such a deep and
meaningful experience I could have in only three days… I feel that in the processes I went
through I could really leave many doubts about myself behind and fully accept myself where I am
“I experienced the Satvatove 3 course as very powerful. I was able to connect with subtle
blocks I didn’t even recognize were keeping me from connecting with God and living on
purpose. I left the course fully aware and connected to the areas of my life that I need to focus on
and the blocks that are holding me back. Since the course ended I’ve experienced more
awareness, connectedness and meaning in my actions and interactions. It was an invaluable course
that came at the perfect time!”
“The workshop was brilliantly designed so that it was perfect for my self-development and
spiritual realization. The rich, vital experience was filled with blessings and resulted in lasting
changes. Through it I am learning about living as a distinction… has been the most powerful
experience I have had so far. During the thrill-filled four days, I found the “1″ that
makes the string of zeros valuable. In the process of finding the “1″, I also let go of
baggage that I thought would be forever with me… My heart feels open, at last, with a
tremendous new sense of peace, calm, and acceptance of myself and others that I have not known
“… With each process I felt closer and closer to my soul, the ultimate divine power and
my life purpose in connection with that. I am still amazed at the height of blissful spiritual
experiences some participants had. At first I thought, this is the height of spiritual experience, it
cannot get better, but quickly realised there is no limit to such spiritual experiences…”
I experienced what a conscious world looks and feels like and I am more confident about a
conscious world happening now rather than some day in the distant future. For me, the Satvatove
3rd Level Course is a uniquely powerful vehicle for conscious living and being happy and free for no
particular reason.
“Satvatove 3 gave me the opportunity to experience myself living consciously
moment-to-moment. I saw myself with fresh new eyes and I began the journey of discovering what it
means to be me as a distinctly unique person. I experienced a sense of community that honoured
the individuality of each person. I realised how nourishing and soul-enriching relationships could be
when each person is real, genuine, and courageously themselves. Somewhere deep inside me the
lights have come on and I feel purposeful and clear.”
“In 6 days the Satvatove Advanced Seminar Experience liberated me in a way years of therapy
would never be able to. I can only describe my experience under the loving and inspirational eyes of
Dr. David Wolf and Marie Glasheen as an awakening from inhibitions and self limiting beliefs and a
journey into a solid sense of joy and self-love that I hadn’t felt in 18 years.―
“It was beyond my expectations and imagination. The experience was deep and healing. It is the
best thing I have ever done for myself and my growth. David and Marie knew exactly what I needed
during the seminar. I highly recommend Satvatove Advanced Seminar to anyone who is committed
to their self growth and creating the life that they want.―
“Satvatove allowed me to get back in touch with myself. It unlocked some deeper truths that
I had buried very deep. I am no longer sleepwalking through life. Things that seemed hard before
are now easier. I am not stumbling in the dark, instead I am now walking with eyes open. I
encourage everyone to give themselves this gift. It’s repeatable science, it works.”
I feel alive, happy, and brand new after having completed the course. I have reconnected with so
many long hidden qualities such as assertiveness and self confidence. I am definitely feeling
empowered to speak out and let my voice be heard. I have turned self hatred into self love. My
commitment to maintaining my spiritual practices has deepened and for this I am most grateful.
“This has been a truly invaluable experience. The quality of your attention and your education is
beautiful and powerful. Thank you for helping me uncover my personal value and room for growth,
and for hold me accountable for my self realisation. I am very grateful for your clarity, and your
intention. The love in the room abounds and I thank you for that.―
I first discovered Satvatove Seminars when my daughter sponsored an event in our home town.
After participating in that event I knew I still had some emotional baggage which was triggered by
ongoing patterns in my life that needed changing, especially with close family members. I knew this
but had not been able to ‘figure it out’! It was too personal. So I enrolled in the Advanced
Seminar held in Florida.
“I truly enjoyed the personal transformation life skills workshop. What really enforced the
concepts were the role-playing and the games. The experience I felt while putting into practice what
I learned is something I can draw on. I know these skills will only serve to enhance my work with my
clients and my relationships with my family. Thank you.”
“I thought that this course was very valuable. I learned skills I will apply in my personal and
professional life. It was very helpful the way the class was set up – when we learned a skill
we immediately applied it so as ‘to use and not lose’. I was amazed at how quickly
we were able to penetrate and get to the real issues… On a scale of 1-10 I would give it a
“I feel greatly benefited from taking the course and feel confident that the effect will begin to
snowball as I continue practicing what I’ve learned. In particular, I feel an increased
awareness of how to communicate more effectively and how to be a real helper to another person.
Besides all the helpful skills I learned and increased awareness I experienced, I had a lot of fun! The
loving mood of our group and our growing experiences together made me wish it would never end.
Keep teaching the course!”
“I so relish the taste of mastery and excellence that permeated the course… I love
poetry. The course stimulated poetry-in-motion – i.e. all styles, lengths, meters, euphony,
cacophony – produced interesting and diverse strains of music, planting seeds of
remembrance of who and what we truly are and the potential we all possess for reclaiming our
“During and upon completing the Advanced Seminar Experience, I found that it was possible to
feel completely free from the anxiety, confusion and pain that was a constant part of my life before. I
may not always be free from it now, but I know that it’s possible, and that brings hope, positivity,
and the power to reconnect with that soaring feeling of the true me – without any
“ “Living as the soul―. That realisation has been the most powerful for me, having taken
the Satvatove Advanced Seminar. Throughout my life, I have heard that we are spiritual beings, not
of this mundane body and mind. That our material experiences are due to the mind and ego, but
that the goal is to transcend these things and live as the soul.”
“… In the course I really plugged into my true, genuine being, and the courage and
self-respect to express myself and BE myself, whatever that may be. It’s still a work in progress,
but I know now that I have the tools and experiences necessary to keep that going in my life.
Thanks Satvatove.―
“I enjoyed the course. It exceeded my expectations in all ways. There was a mixture of
lectures, brain-stimulating activities, and group interactions… I found the whole process made
me so much more aware. Not only did you present knowledge on specific skills, but you also gave
knowledge that improves and empowers our overall state of consciousness. I feel totally rejuvenated
because of that… I will definitely recommend this course to others.”
“The course has given me invaluable tools for dramatically increasing the quality of my life. I can
openly and honestly say that it is the best course I have ever taken. The facilitation created such an
incredible atmosphere required for transformation to take place. It seemed like you knew exactly
where everyone was coming from, where they needed to go, and how to get there.―
“Taking the Foundational after the Advanced Course was like taking a completely different
course than the first Foundational experience. I have undergone a rapid transformation since the
Foundational and approached this Foundation with a completely different consciousness and was
able to gain just as much if not more this time than last time. I was able to be a sponge this time,
taking in as much as I could.”
I have never seen it’s equal and I have studied with the best, with the inventors or those who
studied with the inventors of processes from rebirthing to EST, Gestalt, Rolfing, Somatics, kundalini
yoga, and other psychomeditative processes. I have found your work to take people to just the right
places. I am impressed to see all that I have studied come alive in such a concentrated and
devotional form.
“Satvatove was the best decision I’ve made in 2009 and it’s not my habit to
make poor decisions. Since that weekend and because of what I learned about Kyle, I’m
now closer with friends & I communicate in all aspects of my life (business, family, friends, dating)
with much more assertiveness and understanding.”
I’ve had two main careers and several other ‘jobs’ in my 51 years. Taken a
plethora of courses in self-help and improvement. Grown spiritually, emotionally and mentally.
NOTHING compares or comes close to this experience as a catalyst for personal growth. This 3-day
course is intensive as advertised, and very well organized. Marie and staff, thank you for what you
do and most of all- sharing who you are.

JCV provide different types of Landscape Product for providing a rich appearance for landscapes.
Landscape architecture can range from the creation of public parks and parkways to site planning
for campuses and corporate office parks, from the design of residential estates to the design of civil
infrastructure and the management of renovation of degraded landscapes such as mines or landfills.
The landscape architecture can visualize the overall concept and prepare the master plan, from
which detailed design drawings and technical specifications are prepared. Computer-simulated
renderings enabled the Landscape Architects to depict the finished colors and textures of the cook
center. Colored, salt rock, poured-in-place concrete paving complements the structure of the roofed
with stucco columns and built-in cook center in the rear yard.
A pilaster is an architectural element that looks like half of a column, or a column built into a wall
those projects slightly from the front of a building. Pilaster attached to and projecting slightly from the
face of a wall and equipped with a base and capital like a column and also it is a similar form used
Stone landscaping products are used in many areas in a landscape design including patios, lawn
pathways, decks in pools, frames, columns, foundations for cottages, gazebos, porches and other
concrete structures. The shape of the stone is also important to consider. If the landscaping around
the home looks drab and dingy, it could benefit from a fresh planting. Just like painting, planting and
landscaping is well within the skills of most homeowners.
A steel landscape edging over other products is the ease of installation. You can easily install this
type of edging without having to consult landscaping companies. The edges are very smooth and
straight and provide clean lines for the edge of your project. Generally, this product is perfect for
providing the finishing touch to any of your landscape projects in your yard.
Contemporary landscape architecture can be used either unify architecture and the surrounding
landscape, or it can be utilized to starkly contrast the differences between the two. The
contemporary architecture into unity with the landscape itself, variety of species in plantings is
frequently replaced with geometry as a means of mirroring the structural features of buildings.
Terra Nova Biosystems deploys over 200 strains of powerful, biological microbes specifically
designed to break down non-native contamination in soil. After microbial bioremediation of the
contaminants, the byproduct is clean, contaminate-free soil, containing enriched, natural fertilizers.
The benefit of such a process is clear: it gets rid of the pollution instead moving it, burning it, or
simply leaving it.
For quality assurance, Terra Nova Biosystems' process has undergone extensive third party,
EPA-approved lab testing for certification. This has shown that the Terra Nova remediation process
is so effective that it can pass even the most stringent EPA and state level requirements. The three
following cases are provided to show just how powerful this bioremediation process is for complete
soil remediation.
Terra Nova Biosystems successfully remediated oil sludge from a former steel mill facility which is
now in a redevelopment phase. The chart shows what we were able to achieve in only 21-days with
our treatment. The dark brown column is the level of the contaminant prior to any treatment. The
cream colored column is the EPA/DEQ hurdle level for residential soil for the various contaminants.
The green column is the level that Terra Nova Biosystems was able to achieve after 21-days of
bioremediation treatment.
Leaking Underground Storage Tanks (LUST) are some of the most common sources around the
world for soil contamination. In just weeks, Terra Nova Biosystems is able to efficiently remediate
the contaminants that would commonly be found in leaking underground storage tanks, which often
include, but are not limited to: Benzenes, Ethylbenzenes, Naphthalenes, Toluenes and Xylenes. The
chart shows Terra Nova Biosystems' remediation results. The dark brown column is the level of the
contaminant prior to any treatment. The cream colored column is the EPA/DEQ hurdle level for
residential soil for the various contaminants. The green column is the level Terra Nova Biosystems
was able to achieve using our proprietary remediation technology.
Coming as a surprise to even the most ardent Apple fans and supporters, on May 26, 2010, Apple
officially became a higher valued company than Microsoft. At the close of the day, Wall Street had
valued Apple at $220 billion, verse a valuation of $219 billion for Microsoft. While Microsoft does
have much stronger revenues ($58 billion vs. just shy of $43 billion for Apple), this only makes the
closing numbers even more interesting. Much of the value placed on stocks hinges on how the
company is expected to perform in the future, clearly the feeling on Wall Street is that Apple will
enjoy a brighter future than that of Microsoft. Obviously, this news is of great interest to Internet
Marketing and Search Engine Optimization specialists, as the shift may create new opportunities
and introduce different methods and strategies to their processes. However, in this article we will
examine how Apple overcame Microsoft, and what it will take for them to remain in the lead.
After surpassing Microsoft, Apple has now become the second most valuable company in the
western hemisphere, behind only Exxon ($278 billion). Obviously this growth on behalf of Apple has
much to do with the success of its hardware, as its computers, phones and devices have become
household objects and must own products for people across the globe. However, they also have
some very profitable software suites their loyal customers can be counted on to keep moving off
store shelves. Despite this software success, they have not been able to make much of a dent in the
Operating System wars, as their install base has remained relatively flat over the last few years.
While they make money from software, they are making history with their hardware.
Microsoft can almost be viewed as a polar opposite of Apple. Making most of their money off
software, Microsoft has long supplied the vast majority of Operating Systems to the computers of the
world. They also enjoy huge sales from their Office products and many other software suites. Where
Apple has seen limited success with software, Microsoft has suffered the same fate with their
hardware experiments. Their game consoles are constantly losing them cash (though they make up
for this with profitable game software), and their hardware such as the Zune and their tablet
computers have failed to catch on in the marketplace. Additionally, they have made some poor
investments (purchasing tragically underperforming game developer Rare for a staggering $375
million), and are hit with multiple hundreds of millions of dollars in fines and legal fees every year.
Still, none of this has stopped them from being the second most successful business in the country,
until now.
Apple has earned their lead through constant innovation, both with product designs and
functionality. When the iPod launched, there were already dozens of other mp3 player solutions on
the market. Apple's product became the standard due to its clever design, large capacity and the
support of the iTunes platform. The iPhone has earned its popularity on the strength of its design,
functionality and support of the app store. The common thread in these two success stories is the
supportive environment Apple launches its products into, and the constant tweaking and improving
these products receive. If Apple can continue to put out quality products, back them with impeccable
infrastructure and keep a steady stream of upgraded versions available to its customers, there is no
reason their dominance should end anytime soon. They do have to be on the lookout for a few
things, however.
First, you can never count Microsoft out. The folks at Redmond could, any day, surprise the world
with a new product announcement. Also, while their hardware offerings have been less than stellar
thus far, this does not mean that the trend will continue in the future. They got where they are by
being aware of their competition, and outdoing them. In short, they will not take this lying down.
Secondly, Apple must be careful to not alienate its customers. Many Apple buyers are hit with
intense waves of buyer's remorse when a purchased product receives an upgrade shortly after they
acquire it, leaving them with a brand new, yet outdated piece of hardware. Even as the iPad was in
the pre-release stage, its noticeable lack of features showed consumers that Apple was no longer
truly innovating, but holding back features strictly to roll them out in future product iterations. Finally,
there is the possibility that, in trying to conquer all types of media (TV, music, hardware, computers,
devices, etc) they will spread themselves too thin. A similar situation was already seen with their
Apple TV line which, when it did not launch to an enthusiastic reception, seemed to drop down on
their priority list, leaving customers disappointed at the lack of follow through their device received.
With that said, as long as Apple can keep a solid perspective, remain alert and stay the innovation
course they have ridden to this point, there is no reason why their lead over Microsoft cannot
continue well into the future.

Widgets. You can access Dashboard by clicking on the icon in the Dock or pressing F12 on your
keyboard. You can add and delete widgets by clicking on the "+" sign at the lesser left hand side of
your screen as well as download new widgets on apple.

email account's information into the application when you launch it for the first time. Mail also allows
you to keep notes and make To Do lists along with the usual, compose, send and automatically
receive email from your account.
Address Book is the next app you'll see. Address Book lets you input all of your information for
contacts for anyone you know, including phone numbers, web pages and, of course, addresses.
You'll find this application also has excellent integration with other applications on your system and
is more useful in other applications more than on it's own.

F8 or assigning a hot corner in System Preferences.
Time Machine is the second to last application on your Dock. Time Machine is a backup application.
Time Machine will backup anything you ask it to to an external hard drive that you attach to your
computer via USB or Firewire. The last, and arguably the most useful application you'll see is the
System Preferences. System Preferences lets you set up your computer exactly how you like and
lets you configure any of the built in features of Mac OS X. Remember, all of these apps come
standard with any Apple computer, weather it's a Mac Book or a Mac Pro or anything in between no need to buy all those additional programs or applications like on a PC.

In 2008, Mibelle Biochemistry Switzerland launched an entirely new active cosmetic ingredient
based on apple stem cells. In line with their motto ‘inspired by nature; realized by science',
Mibelle Biochemistry has created a basis to combine nature & science to obtain new
Phyto-ingredients that were previously unavailable.
At this time, the apple species 'Uttwiler Spätlauber' was grown in many areas as this apple was
particularly suitable for storage. This was due to its high content of tannins and its long-lasting cells.
Today, however, this species of apple is almost extinct. It has been replaced by more modern,
optically more attractive apple species that also taste much better. Storability is no longer an issue,
because nowadays fruits can be imported in the winter.
Mibelle Biochemistry has established a plant cell culture from one of the few Uttwiler Spätlauber
apples from one of the few trees that still exist. Thus the valuable ingredients of this species of apple
- that in principle only exists on postage stamps - are now again available to the cosmetics industry
in the required quantity.
There are epidermal stem cells in human skin. These are effectively the ‘mother cells' of all
cells in the epidermis and are thus responsible for the formation of new cells and for the
regeneration of damaged cells. As the skin is a tissue that constantly regenerates itself, the skin
stem cells (epidermal stem cells) are considered to be the most important skin cells.
PhytoCellTecв„ў Malus Domestica offers entirely new opportunities in cosmetics. By using
plant stem cells to protect skin stem cells skin chronological and environmental induced skin aging
can be delayed. PhytoCellTecв„ў Malus Domestica maintains the power of regeneration for a
young and vital looking skin. In a recent edition of US Vogue it was revealed that even Michelle
Obama is a fan of this ingredient.
Apple said earlier this week that it will hold an event on March 2 in San Francisco, with all signs
pointing to an iPad 2 unveiling. This lit up the blogosphere with predictions about what might be in
the iPad 2, whether or not Steve Jobs will be presenting, and, of course, what might be the "one
more thing" Apple is famous for at these events.
Consensus has the iPad 2 sporting at least a front-facing camera, more memory, and a thinner and
lighter body. There is a good chance of a rear-facing camera, more storage, a more powerful
graphics processor, better speakers, Replacement batteries and iPhone 4-like sensing capabilities
such as gyroscope.
If Apple can keep the iPad 2 price on par with the original iPad (starting at $499) or even lower, this
would take the wind out of the sales of the Motorola Xoom being launched today. The Xoom tablet
and iPad rival costs $800 (or $600 with a two-year, $20-a-month Verizon data plan). It doesn't take
much imagination to envision a smirking Jobs teeing up the iPad 2's unbeatable price tag on the
heels of Xoom's launch.
Predictions are risky business in the world of Apple, but a tidbit from Apple's annual shareholder
meeting this week offers a clue (or at least a possibility). Apple said its massive $1 billion North
Carolina datacenter, wrought with delays since late last year when it was supposed to open, is
expected to open this spring. The data center will support iTunes and MobileMe services.
Apple's "one more thing" might be that the long-awaited iTunes in the cloud is coming. If so, you'll be
able to store libraries and backups in the cloud, stream music and video, save precious local storage
space. More importantly, you're days of syncing to iTunes on the desktop would come to a happy
Your Unique Value Proposition (UVP) is defined as the unique value you or your business offers to
its audience or customers. It\'s why your customers, employers, constituents, patrons, members,
etc. will want to do business with you. Here\'s a personal example of one thing that differentiates me
from my competition: my interpersonal ability- my ability to connect with all kinds of people on a real
level and get clear on the goal. Understanding your UVP is paramount to the level of impact that you
can have in your endeavors.
Typically, it\'s mainly corporations and entrepreneurs who are encouraged to have a solid UVP.
Personally, I think it also applies to working professionals, consultants and others who are looking to
\"sell\" anything. For example, even if you are requesting to be on the PTA board for your child\'s
school or to organize the food drive for your organization or association, have your UVP honed and
be ready to articulate it when asked why you\'re the one for the job. Whatever work role you may
have at this point in your life, crafting your UVP statement can be very advantageous and potentially
help land you that great opportunity!
3. Next to your measures in the second column you can rate your competitor(s) on the same
competencies. You may or may not know of a specific competitor. In the case of trying to get that
big contract or dream job, you may not know your specific competitor, but you can generalize based
upon what you know about \"typical others\" going for the same gig. Take your best shot based upon
the knowledge you have or do some research.
4. Circle the competencies that are unique from your competition. Even if you\'re a \"53 on
something, but you\'re competitor is a \"3,\" that\'s a unique competency. Now step back and look at
your unique competitive strengths. How are you different? How is this different from others vying for
the same audience?
Our lives seem to \"fly by\", as the saying goes. So, when you are unhappy with the progress you
are making in your life or work it can weigh you down and affect how happy you are in general. I
know what this feels like. I found myself going in each day to my corporate job with VERY LITTLE
sense of meaning, purpose, appreciation and satisfaction. I felt \"stuck.\"
I took action to change that, and now I am doing creating the life I want, pursuing what I am
passionate about. Whether you want to make a change in your relationships, work, etc., you can
step out and take action too. I can help you get crystal clear on your goals and partner with you to
create change through my PROVEN 6-STEP PROCESS. You will quickly start moving forward and
feel more happy and in charge of your life right away.

My accountant loves it. those who expect me to not have receipts or documentation should hate
how quickly I will notice supporting documentation for no matter issue i am researching.
I've found it's easier to simply scan everything that may not already on my laptop or already in pdf

Windows Phone 7 is Microsoft's latest attempt at making a mobile OS that somebody might actually
want to use. And this time around, Microsoft seems to have been extremely successful. Windows
Phone 7 is a sleek, sophisticated operating system with all the power that one would expect from
any version of iOS. This is the takeaway from the hands-on with various Windows Phone 7 devices.
The Media Player in Windows Phone 7 is extremely strong. Microsoft has chosen to integrate the
Zune software into the phone, which is mature and full-featured, having been in the Microsoft Zune
for years. Windows Phone users can even use the online Zune features, and therefore play any
songs that they bought or rented for their regular Zune on their phone.
Microsoft Office is probably the best reason to use this phone. It is Microsoft's flagship software and
something that is not available for any other phone or mobile operating system. Every program that
is in the standard Microsoft Office will be included, and with the excellent on-screen keyboard, it
could make a road warrior much more productive.
So far there are no third-party applications, which is the feature that many base their phone decision
on. However, Microsoft has been paying Apple developers to develop for their platform, so it is likely
that at launch there will be many more applications available. While not as many applications as for
other platforms, there is nothing to worry about here.
This is perhaps the worst part of the phone. Microsoft is using Internet Explorer as the integrated
browser, which has never been very well-represented in mobile. It is extremely ugly and lacks for
many basic features. One can only hope that there will be good third-party browsers available.
Adobe Flash is not supported.

The apple diet is a question I get asked by weight loss clients every once in a while when they first
join my program.Ð’Â What is it?Ð’Â Does it work?Ð’Â Is it safe?Ð’Â All valid questions for those
looking to lose weight quickly.Ð’Â Asian women get their skinny bodies by using natural fruits like
apples, but in a different way than you might expect.Ð’Â Let's take a look at how apples can either
help, or hurt, your chances of burning fat quickly!
The problem with this method is that we as human beings are not able to get 100% of the vitamins
and nutrients we require from just a single food source.Ð’Â We evolved over time by eating
thousands of different types of food, and taking the best parts of each one of them as we digest
what we've eaten.
By eating an apple prior to dinner,Ð’Â you get a tremendous boost of fiber and healthy calories.Ð’Â
This has two effects in that it makes you feel more satisfied and less hungry when you sit down to
eat the main meal, so you eat less, and you also will eat more slowly because you're not so crazy
from hunger.
You eat less, and you eat slower, both of which allow your body to better absorb the calories you're
consuming without exceeding your metabolism's ability to burn those calories for energy.Ð’Â Just
that simple action, one apple before dinner, can cause you to eat between 200-400 fewer calories at
dinner...which in a month means you saved between 6,000 and 12,000 calories that you otherwise
would have eaten!
Not just losing your phone, but there can be other incidences like hardware failure, upgrade your
device. How much of that data would you be able to get back? It's important to know that your files
and contacts are all secure and in a place that you can easily reach out to whenever you wish to or
need to. Your files on BackupandShare are stored securely at a central location so that you can

An important feature in Chinese architecture is its emphasis on articulation and bilateral symmetry,
which signifies balance. Bilateral symmetry and the articulation of buildings are found everywhere in
Chinese architecture, from palace complexes to humble farmhouses. When possible, plans for
renovation and extension of a house will often try to maintain this symmetry provided that there is
enough capital to do so. Secondary elements are positioned either side of main structures as two
wings to maintain overall bilateral symmetry.
Contemporary Western architectural practices typically involve surrounding a building by an open
yard on the property. This contrasts with much of traditional Chinese architecture, which involves
constructing buildings or building complexes that take up an entire property but encloses open
spaces within itself. These enclosed spaces come in two forms: the open courtyard () and the "sky
well" ().
Although large open courtyards are less commonly found in southern Chinese architecture, the
concept of a "open space" surrounded by buildings, which is seen in northern courtyard complexes,
can be seen in the southern building structure known as the "sky well". This structure is essentially a
relatively enclosed courtyard formed from the intersections of closely spaced buildings and offer
small opening to the sky through the roof space from the floor up.
These enclosures serve in temperature regulation and in venting the building complexes. Northern
courtyards are typically open and facing the south to allow the maximum exposure of the building
windows and walls to the sun while keeping the cold northern winds out. Southern sky wells are
relatively small and serves to collect rain water from the roof tops while restricting the amount of
sunlight that enters the building. Sky wells also serve as vents for rising hot air, which draws cool air
from the lowers stories of the house and allows for exchange of cool air with the outside.
A stone-carved pillar-gate, or que (), 6 m (20 ft) in total height, located at the tomb of Gao Yi in
Ya'an, Sichuan province, Eastern Han Dynasty (25-220 AD); notice the stone-carved decorations of
roof tile eaves, despite the fact that Han Dynasty stone que (part of the walled structures around
tomb entrances) lacked wooden or ceramic components (but often imitated wooden buildings with
ceramic roof tiles).
The projected hierarchy and importance and uses of buildings in traditional Chinese architecture are
based on the strict placement of buildings in a property/complex. Buildings with doors facing the
front of the property are considered more important than those facing the sides. Building facing
away from the front of the property are the least important.
As well, building in the rear and more private parts of the property are held in higher esteem and
reserve for elder members of the family or ancestral plaques than buildings near the front, which are
typically for servants and hired help. Front facing buildings in the back of properties are used
particularly for rooms of celebratory rites and for the placement of ancestral halls and plaques. In
multiple courtyard complexes, Central courtyard and their buildings are considered more important
than peripheral ones, the latter which are typically used as storage or servant's rooms or kitchens.
Classical Chinese buildings, especially those of the wealthy are built with an emphasis on breadth
and less on height, with close heavy platform and a large roof that floats over this base, with the
vertical walls not well emphasized. This contrasts Western architecture, which tends to grow in
height and depth. Chinese architecture stresses the visual impact of the width of the buildings.
The halls and palaces in the Forbidden City, for example, have rather low ceilings when compared
to equivalent stately buildings in the West, but their external appearances suggest the all-embracing
nature of imperial China. These ideas have found their way into modern Western architecture, for
example through the work of Jrn Utzon. This of course does not apply to pagodas, which are and
limited to religious building complexes.
The use of certain colors, numbers and the cardinal directions in traditional Chinese architecture
reflected the belief in a type of immanence, where the nature of a thing could be wholly contained in
its own form. Although the Western tradition gradually developed a body of architectural literature,
little was written on the subject in China, and the earliest text, the Kaogongji, was never disputed.
However, ideas about cosmic harmony and the order of the city were usually interpreted at their
most basic level, so a reproduction of the "ideal" city never existed. Beijing as reconstructed
throughout the 15th and 16th century remains one of the best examples of traditional Chinese town
Usof large structural timbers for primary support of the roof of a building. Wooden timber, usually
large trimmed logs, are used as load-bearing columns and lateral beams for framing buildings and
supporting the roofs. These structural timbers are prominently displayed in finished structures.
However, it is not known how the ancient builders raised the huge wooden load bearing columns
into position.
Sweeping: Roofs with a sweeping curvature that rises at the corners of the roof. The types of roof
construction are usually reserved for temples and palaces although it may also be found in the
homes of the wealthy. In the former cases, the ridges of the roof are usually highly decorated with
ceramic figurines.
The roof apex of a large hall is usually topped with a ridge of tiles for both decorative purposes but
also to weight down the layers of roofing tiles for stability. These ridges are often well decorated,
especially for religious or palatial structures. In some regions of China, the ridges are sometimes
extended or incorporated from the walls of the building to form matouqiang (horse-head walls),
which serve as a fire deterrent from drifting embers.
Unlike other building construction materials, old wooden structures often do not survive because
they are more vulnerable to weathering and fires and are naturally subjected to rotting over time.
Although now nonexistent wooden residential towers, watchtowers, and pagodas predated it by
centuries, the Songyue Pagoda built in 523 is the oldest extant pagoda in China; its use of brick
instead of wood had much to do with its endurance throughout the centuries. From the Tang
Dynasty (618907) onwards, brick and stone architecture gradually became more common and
replaced wooden edifices. The earliest of this transition can be seen in building projects such as the
Zhaozhou Bridge completed in 605 or the Xumi Pagoda built in 636, yet stone and brick architecture
is known to have been used in subterranean tomb architecture of earlier dynasties.
As for the commoners, be they bureaucrats, merchants or farmers, their houses tended to follow a
set pattern: the center of the building would be a shrine for the deities and the ancestors, which
would also be used during festivities. On its two sides were bedrooms for the elders; the two wings
of the building (known as "guardian dragons" by the Chinese) were for the junior members of the
family, as well as the living room, the dining room, and the kitchen, although sometimes the living
room could be very close to the center.
Sometimes the extended families became so large that one or even two extra pairs of "wings" had to
be built. This resulted in a U-shaped building, with a courtyard suitable for farm work; merchants and
bureaucrats, however, preferred to close off the front with an imposing front gate. All buildings were
legally regulated, and the law held that the number of storeys, the length of the building and the
colours used depended on the owner's class. Some commoners living in areas plagued by bandits
built communal fortresses called Tulou for protection.
There were certain architectural features that were reserved solely for buildings built for the Emperor
of China. One example is the use of yellow roof tiles; yellow having been the Imperial color, yellow
roof tiles still adorn most of the buildings within the Forbidden City. The Temple of Heaven, however,
uses blue roof tiles to symbolize the sky. The roofs are almost invariably supported by brackets
("dougong"), a feature shared only with the largest of religious buildings. The wooden columns of the
buildings, as well as the surface of the walls, tend to be red in color. Black is also a famous color
often used in pagodas. They believe the gods are inspired by the black color to descend on to the
Only the buildings used by the imperial family were allowed to have nine jian (, space between two
columns); only the gates used by the Emperor could have five arches, with the centre one, of
course, being reserved for the Emperor himself. The ancient Chinese favored the color red. The
buildings faced south because the north had a cold wind.
Beijing became the capital of China after the Mongol invasion of the 13th century, completing the
easterly migration of the Chinese capital begun since the Jin dynasty, the Ming uprising in 1368
reasserted Chinese authority and fixed Beijing as the seat of imperial power for the next five
centuries. The Emperor and the Empress lived in palaces on the central axis of the Forbidden City,
the Crown Prince at the eastern side, and the concubines at the back (therefore the numerous
imperial concubines were often referred to as "The Back Palace Three Thousand"). However, during
the mid-Qing Dynasty, the Emperor's residence was moved to the western side of the complex. It is
misleading to speak of an axis in the Western sense of a visual perspective ordering facades, rather
the Chinese axis is a line of privilege, usually built upon, regulating access - there are no vistas, but
a series of gates and pavilions.
Numerology heavily influenced Imperial Architecture, hence the use of nine in much of construction
(nine being the greatest single digit number) and reason why The Forbidden City in Beijing is said to
have 9,999.9 rooms - just short of the mythical 10,000 rooms in heaven. The importance of the East
(the direction of the rising sun) in orienting and siting Imperial buildings is a form of solar worship
found in many ancient cultures, where the notion of Ruler is affiliated with the Sun.
The tombs and mausoleums of imperial family members, such as the 8th century Tang Dynasty
tombs at the Qianling Mausoleum, can also be counted as part of the imperial tradition in
architecture. These above-ground earthen mounds and pyramids had subterranean shaft-and-vault
structures that were lined with brick walls since at least the Warring States (481221 BCE).
Generally speaking, Buddhist architecture follow the imperial style. A large Buddhist monastery
normally has a front hall, housing the statue of a Bodhisattva, followed by a great hall, housing the
statues of the Buddhas. Accommodations for the monks and the nuns are located at the two sides.
Some of the greatest examples of this come from the 18th century temples of the Puning Temple
and the Putuo Zongcheng Temple. Buddhist monasteries sometimes also have pagodas, which may
house the relics of the Gautama Buddha; older pagodas tend to be four-sided, while later pagodas
usually have eight-sides.
Daoist architecture, on the other hand, usually follow the commoners' style. The main entrance is,
however, usually at the side, out of superstition about demons which might try to enter the premise.
(See feng shui.) In contrast to the Buddhists, in a Daoist temple the main deity is located at the main
hall at the front, the lesser deities at the back hall and at the sides.
The tallest pre-modern building in China was built for both religious and martial purposes. The Liaodi
Pagoda of 1055 AD stands at a height of 84Ð’Â m (275Ð’Â ft), and although it served as the
crowning pagoda of the Kaiyuan monastery in old Dingzhou, Hebei, it was also used as a military
watchtower for Song Dynasty soldiers to observe potential Liao Dynasty enemy movements.
Although mostly only ruins of brick and rammed earth walls and towers from ancient China (i.e.
before the 6th century AD) have survived, information on ancient Chinese architecture (especially
wooden architecture) can be discerned from more or less realistic clay models of buildings created
by the ancient Chinese as funerary items. This is similar to the paper joss houses burned in some
modern Chinese funerals. The following models were made during the Han Dynasty (202 BCE 220

Used to describe the symptoms of physical and emotional over-strain, the term of burnout syndrome
refers especially to the consequences of professional overload. If in the past it was the harsh
working conditions that overworked a person (overcrowded, ill-ventilated and poorly-lit rooms; very
low or very high temperatures; rude tools and equipment, etc., nowadays it is too heavy an amount
of activities and responsibilities, prolonged working hours, less time of rest, relaxation and
recreation; less time spent with family and friends, professional demands exceeding the employee's
training, very high standards of productivity and efficiency, etc., that does it. One other aspect that
must be taken into consideration is the personal perception of the situations that we deal with on
daily basis. A stress factor may be positive or negative. It is our mind that gives these factors an
emotional charge, matching information from the environment with former experiences and with our
present emotional state. Therefore, tasks and events in our professional or private life may bear a
positive charge for some people or a negative one for others.
It is believed from a medical point of view that, if prolonged, a state of professional over-strain will
trigger a number of specific reactions in the body. They damage the organic, metabolic, immune and
cardiovascular activity. Consequently, a good ground is created for the onset of a number of more
serious diseases.
In the traditional medicine, treatment of burnout syndrome is centered upon relaxation and tension
release of the central nervous system; reconstruction of the hypo oxygenated or poorly vascularised
cerebral areas; relieving the osteoarticular and muscular system of stress; dealing with the tisular
and the organic disorders; balancing metabolism and immunity; improving concentration and
memory; restoring the physical and emotional balance. Acupuncture procedures and medicinal herb
extracts tonify the thesaurus organs and the cerebral areas, regulating their activity: lungs, to
improve cell oxygenation; kidneys, to revitalize the body; liver and spleen-pancreas, to purify and to
detoxify the body, but also to manage a better absorption of the food nutrients.
The physician-patient dialogue is centered upon the professional and personal reevaluation;
reorganization of the emotional and affective life and upon stress relieving. Consequently, the
intellectual and emotional resources will be reactivated and the patient will get reintegrated into his
professional and familial environment.
Stress and physical and/or intellectual stress; anxiety and nervousness; discontentment caused by
career accumulate a nervous tension with bad consequences upon the cardiovascular system,
especially upon artery tension. Hypertension is betrayed by profuse perspiration, palpitation,
tachycardia, headaches, fatigue, vertigoes, insomnia, tinnitus, pressure in the temples and on the
nape, blurred vision, numbness in the arms, etc. Should artery tension show high values over a long
period of time, and tension fits are also recorded, there is risk of myocardial infarction,
cerebrovascular accident, retina hemorrhages, or of other, more complex, diseases (myocardial
Digestive disorders occur mainly because, in the absence of regular meal hours, foods are quickly
ingested; people eat foods with low nutritional value or fast foods. Excess of coffee, instant coffee,
and fizzy juices upset the gastric balance. As symptoms, the following can be mentioned: bloating,
nausea, burning esophagus, pains of the xiphoid process, soft stools or constipation, slow digestive
transit. Digestive discomfort upsets emotional processes. Therefore concentration and memory are
diminished and so are body's resistance and endurance. Immunity is affected, too, taking into
account that a balanced intestinal flora helps maintain a strong immunity. Unless the alimentary
habits are corrected, there is threat of more serious diseases, such as: gastro duodenal ulcer,
gastritis, hepatic and pancreatic (pancreatitis) diseases, biliary dyskinesia, biliary calculus, obesity,
etc. Intestinal transit, hepatic and pancreatic functions are restored with the help of a diet with
detoxifying and revitalizing effects; also by stimulating the energy centers that regulate the recovery
of the intestinal flora; also by administering medicinal herb products with detoxifying, antispastic and
cicatrizing action; protective of the digestive tube; antiseptic and anti-fungal action; regulatory of the
intestinal transit; hepatic stimulatory and protective; with cholagogic action (it helps evacuating bile
into duodenum).
Scoliosis, kyphosis, inflammation of the vertebral discs, of ligaments, and paravertebral muscles are
pathologic manifestations caused by a bad body posture, which is maintained for a long time during
work. Spinal column disorders must be treated without delay, especially because of the negative
impact they have upon the entire body. There are many nerve centers in the spinal column.
Therefore, any vertebral displacement will affect their activity and, consequently, the activity of the
innervated organs.
Work at computer for more than eight hours a day, without a break at every hour; reading of official
documents without a pause and working rooms without natural light or poorly lit strain eye muscles.
The accumulated eye tension will travel to the optic nerves' ramifications, posing the threat of
irreversible lesions. Vision grows poor because of overstrain, and an extra effort is required to fulfill
professional duties. Eye tension will be restored, too, within physiological limits with the help of
certain medicinal herb extracts, which restore local metabolism, tonify and fortify eye muscles, but
also by acupuncture procedures with similar action. All these therapies will recover the elasticity of
the eye muscles and they will restore the circuit of ocular humors.
1.   Audio quality – Crystal clear sound quality and volume control is a must, as it
is useful during weak connectivity. Look for Digital Signal Processing (DSP) Technology, which lets
headset speakers to automatically boost the listening volume level and balance the background
noise. You can try many outstanding brands, such as the Aliph Jawbone Bluetooth headset, an
excellent noise-canceling headset.
2.   Comfort – Ease of use is another primary element you should take into
consideration. If the headset has an ear clip, double check if it fits perfectly around your ear. If it has
a boom, most likely, it has size selections to make it more comfy to wear. The “in the
ear” Bluetooth is the least suitable option, however, its crisp sound quality and precision still
make it a good choice if the positioning is not a concern.
8.   Compatibility – The headset should use at least Bluetooth 1.1 technology.
1.2 version is quickly catching up and becoming more widely-used, as it helps lessen radio
frequency interruption through a frequency hopping selection, improving security. 2.0 version has
been also launched on other devices, which has faster transmission and lower battery consumption.
10.   Look and style – Appearance may sound unimportant, but it’s
actually a major factor to most. There are two main styles available for Bluetooth headsets: Boom or
No Boom. Boom is a mouthpiece accessory that looks like something a telephone operator would
normally use. While it’s quite heavy and bulky, it offers enhanced clarity. No Boom can either
be “in the ear” headphones (less snug to wear but more secure), or headphones that
are worn around the ear using a foldable clip.
Bluetooth technology is constantly developing as time goes by. Likewise, Bluetooth accessories are
becoming more and more modern. So make sure to choose a wireless headset that is compatible
with a wide array of Bluetooth versions and devices to allow greater usage and worthy of any future
It's rather apt, when you think about it, that Sony Ericsson should be the ones leading the way in the
revolution in camera-equipped mobile phones. After all, it was them who began it all, long ago, in
2002. Let's not forget that they were the first phone-maker to unleash a mobile phone that had a
camera built in, within the British marketplace. That mobile was the Sony Ericsson P800, but it didn't
get the mass market penetration Sony Ericsson wanted, as it was an amazingly (compared to other
mobile phones at the time) top-end smartphone. But, their most iconic mobile in history was about to
be unveiled, and that one DID get great market penetration. That was the Sony Ericsson T610, and
it entirely altered the mobile landscape. Here you had a phone that stood proudly over the rival
mobile phones around it. It was compact, it was slim, and the country went MENTAL for it. Plus, let's
not forget that the Sony Ericsson T610 had also got a built-in camera, and that it was actually the
first mobile to go to the mass market, and make them think, 'Wait a sec, we really do want our
mobile phones to have cameras in 'em!'
There's no denying power, and one thing is for certain: the Sony Ericsson C905 has loads and loads
more raw power than all other mobile phones you can get in the UK. Why is it so special? Simple,
this is the first camera phone to be unleashed upon the UK that's got an 8 megapixel camera. Yes,
you read that right. 8. That's a disturbingly huge pixel count, and it means that with the Sony
Ericsson C905, you have the ability to take the absolute most incredible pictures you've ever
experienced, from any camera-equipped mobile phone, ever. Oh, and of course, don't forget that
Sony Ericsson have packed it full of Cyber-Shot technology, and that's going to make the pictures it
produces even more sumptuous. Combine that with a stunning multimedia player, WiFi, HSDPA and
built-in GPS, and you have to come to the conclusion that the Sony Ericsson C905 is, basically, the
number one!
I've done a few articles on the Sony Ericsson X1, so I'm not going to get too bogged down in the
features here. I could do, and I COULD go on about the 3 megapixel camera, or the GPS, or the
media player, or the brand new interface, or the fact that the X1 is the first Sony Ericsson mobile
phone to use Windows Mobile. But I won't. Instead, I'm going to focus on what features make it the
king of internet-enabled mobile phones. It has to be said, that most of the reasons for it being so
good online come from it being based on Windows Mobile, so you get things like MSN Messenger,
Internet Explorer and Outlook, built into the Sony Ericsson X1. Combine that with the blisteringly
quick HSDPA internet access, and the absolutely marvellous QWERTY keyboard, and you get one
heck of an internet device. Between the camera-tastic Sony Ericsson C905 and the high-end X1, I'd
say they really do have the chops to dominate the world of mobile phones, this Christmas.

I recently was asked by a friend to take a look at his computer because he was getting frustrated by
how slow it had become. My first question to him was, "What version of Windows are you running?"
and he replied, "Windows XP". Not being surprised, I told him that I would be happy to fix his PC. If
you find yourself having this same problem and wondering what makes Windows XP slow, you're
most certainly not alone.
As with all software developed these days, there are the good, the bad and the ugly. I have yet to
come across anything that I could honestly say is perfect, although there are some applications out
there that get really really close to it. Having said that, Windows XP is by far, less than perfect. If
you're interested in the reasons what makes Windows XP slow, I'll give you a short explanation,
otherwise you can just scroll down and follow my list of things to speed up your PC.
To be quite blunt, it's everyday use of your computer. Unfortunately, Windows XP was released with
a whole bunch of problems, and that's why they keep issuing Service Packs. Basically, they try and
make it work a little better than before, but it doesn't always work out that way. If I had to put it down
to one thing that makes Windows XP slow, it would have to be the Windows Registry. This small
component of the Operating System (that's computer speak for the Software that controls your
computer and is exactly what Windows XP is), causes the most problems amongst the average
computer user.
After a while, the Windows Registry begins to fill up with a number of entries that are not always
valid. The best way to think about it is to consider the Registry to be like the phone book for your
computer. It stores all the programs and settings for your computer (the equivalent to a person's
name in the phone book) and what the computer should do when it has a request from you, the user
(the equivalent to the phone number). As you can imagine, this can get rather large over a long
period of time and it's the reason why your computer is slower now than when you first purchased it.
Add to that a number of entries that are no longer valid (phone numbers that are disconnected) and
you have what we experience a really slow Windows XP computer.
Change your Virtual Memory Pagefile Size: Right click on 'My Computer' and select 'Properties'. At
the bottom of the screen, take a note of how much RAM you have. Then click on the 'Advanced' tab
at the top and click on 'Settings' under the Performance section. You'll then need to click on the
'Advanced' tab and click on 'Change' under the Virtual Memory section. Here is where you'll need to
select the 'Custom' radio button and enter in both the 'Initial Size' & 'Maximum Size' boxes with the
number that you get when you do this quick calculation. The amount of RAM that you noted above
multiplied by 2. E.g. If you have 2,024MB (equal to 2GB) of RAM, then you would enter 4,048 into
both boxes. Then click OK- Disable Automatic Network Search: For this, you'll need to open 'My
Computer', select 'Tools' from the menu at the top of the Window and click on 'Folder Options'.
Select the 'View' tab and un-tick the box next to the line that says 'Automatically search for network
folders and printers' Run Disk Defragmenter: This can be found in the start menu's AccessoriesNow that you have a better understanding of what makes Windows XP slow. You should be aware
that these are great ways to help speed up your computer however, like I mentioned earlier, you'll
need to fix the Windows Registry eventually. This is what will make the most significant
improvement. For that, you're going to need some specialised software.
For the uninitiated, Point and Figure charting is the only charting method that analyzes price without
the noise of time. The noise amplification of time in other forms of charting – Candlesticks,
Heikin Ashi and OHLC is visually disruptive as you toggle between daily, minute, weekly and
monthly charts.
Jeremy trained as an automotive engineer, then studied as an economist, but gave both up to
become a Technical Analyst. He founded Indexia Research in 1983 and pioneered the firm’s
development of PC-based Technical Analysis. In 2002, he led the merger of Indexia with Updata
plc, where he is currently the Head of Technical Analysis and software design.Ð’Â While most of
the clients of Updata are institutional clients, namely European and US commercial and investment
banks, the Point & Figure methods he teaches in the book are universal and relevant for retail
trading purposes.Ð’Â He is aÐ’Â Fellow of the Society of Technical Analysts (FSTA) in the UK, and
a member of the American Market Technicians Association (MTA).Ð’Â The MTA awarded him the
designation of Chartered Market Technician (CMT).
The engineering precision coupled with the factual economic rationale forms the solid cornerstones
of this almanac on P&F methods. With 456+ pages and over 300 charts in full color, the book is
aptly sub-titled “A Comprehensive Guide to the Theory and Practical Use of the Point and
Figure Charting Method.”
Jeremy is the alternative and consummate “financial engineer”. He avoids heavy
economic jargon and Fundamental Analysis is dismissed early on in the book, referred to as the
“F” word. What he needs to say is effectively captured in the way he visually
communicates through the charts.
2.Ð’Â Characteristics and Construction. This chapters deals with the logic for chart constructions
using Xs and Os, Up and Down moves, Xs and Os called boxes, Box size, Reversal Size, Variable
Sensitivity, Gaps, Price on Y-axis but no time on X-axis, Two-dimensional charts, No Volume,
Demand and Supply and Naming Point and Figure charts.
Chapter 2 covers the foundational attributes for building Point and Figure charts. What is covered
here, that is glossed over in most P&F books, is the added emphasis on varying the sensitivity of
charts by changing the box size and reversal size.Ð’Â Gaps are eliminated and do not feature in the
charts at all.Ð’Â Volume is already embedded in the Reversal counts of the P&F chart, without
having to graph volume separately.Ð’Â There is no need to fuss with reconciling price against
volume-based studies.Ð’Â P&F chart construction excludes time altogether.Ð’Â Unlike time-based
charts (e.g. Candlesticks/Heikin Ashi/OHLC, etc.), where a minute/day/week/month chart results in
different views causing visual confusion.
The sub-section on 1-box, 2-box, 3-box and 5-box reversal charts is what makes this chapter
different. Most literature on the subject concentrates on 3-box sizing with token treatment of other
box sizes. This where Jeremy’s depth of experience becomes evident. 34 pages are
dedicated to the effects of raising price sensitivity (1-box reversal and 2-box reversal) for
intra-day/day trading purposes versus lowering price sensitivity (5-box reversal) for trading
multi-month positions or highly volatile products. A 3-box reversal chart is the default and is more
relevant for trading positions held for weeks going a month. It is applicable to the majority of
Indexes/ETFs. Practical reasons are given for changing the reversal count, which adjusts the
weighting given to the prevailing column and the underlying’s statistical volatility. This affects
the intensity of price continuing or discontinuing along its trend.
3.Ð’Â Understanding Point and Figure Charts. The topics covered include: Point and Figure
Signals, The strength of the pattern, differences between 1-box and 3-box patterns, Traps,

with the trend or against the trend, Trend lines on Point and Figure charts. Ð’Â
Clear illustrations are given on demand pushing price up a column of Xs, whereas supply pushes
price down in a column of Os. Thorough examples are given of how patterns vary according to the
reversal size used. There are binary rules to ignore or trade buy/sell signals that are part of a larger,
more complex pattern and patterns that can trap the untrained eye into a trade that should have
been avoided in the first place. 45В° degree Bullish Support and Bearish Resistance Trend Lines
are used to remove subjectivity if a certain price level qualifies as Support or Resistance.Ð’Â
Congestion Analysis looks at the width of patterns, where the area taken up by a pattern determines
the strength of price advancing or declining that signals potential trade entries or exits.
4. Projecting Price Targets. P&F price targets are established on vertical and horizontal box counts.
This section deals with Counts on 1-box reversal charts, Counts on 3-box reversal charts, Nearest
counts must be achieved first, Clustering of counts, Negating a count, Opposing counts, Combining
counts with trend lines, Unfulfilled counts, Improbable and impossible counts, a Good counter or
Bad counter, Counts of log scale charts and Risk to Reward ratios.
Estimating a price target with P&F charts is not subjective but a clearly computed forecast based on
box counts. Each box is sized as an identical square without exception.Ð’Â As box sizes are
uniform, the counts identify unambiguous targets. They target may not be 100% accurate every time
but they are unambiguous. Establishing the vertical and horizontal count of Price Targets is
necessary to determine the intensity of strength and weakness in price trends.Ð’Â There is a
uniqueness in using 3-box reversal charts, which enables both vertical and horizontal counts to
assess the viability of a price target. Whereas, a 1-box reversal chart is limited to horizontal counts
only.Ð’Â The more counts that cluster around a particular price target, the stronger the target is.
5. Analysing Point and Figure Charts. This chapter integrates the foundational techniques covered
in chapters 2, 3 and 4 with practical trading examples. The emphasis is on application and covers
these topics: Reversal Size, Choosing the correct box size, Choosing the data series, Log scale
charts, Analysis of 1-box, 2-box and 3-box reversal charts, Stops in Point and Figure analysis and
Early entry points.
Changing the box size affects the time horizon, not to be confused with time frame, as P&F charts
exclude units of time (day/week/month/year).Ð’Â The smaller the box size, the shorter the time
horizon, e.g. 1-box reversal charts suit intra-day trades versus 3-box reversal charts are geared for
trades lasting 30-60 days.В All trends lines are standardized to one standard of a 45В° degree
line. This is not a rigid but consistent methodology and is possible as variability in time as discreet
variable has been removed from the charts altogether.Ð’Â Trend lines are the most important
element of any P&F chart and must be given first priority above buy/sell signals. The more complex
a Bullish/Bearish pattern becomes the more significant it becomes.Ð’Â To validate trades to avoid,
enter or and exit continually assess the price target, trend lines and vertical count of a
column’s height and horizontal count of row’s width.
9. Advanced Point and Figure Techniques. This chapter is what sets this body of work apart from
other P&F literature.Ð’Â It covers how to use moving averages on Point and Figure charts, the need
to differentiate between moving averages on a 1-box reversal chart versus a 3-box reversal chart,
using the Parabolic stop and reverse (SAR) Indicator on a P&F chart and the Overbought/Oversold
analysis on P&F charts with Bollinger Bands.
The moving averages are a straightforward confirmation to accept or reject a Point and Figure buy
or sell signal.Ð’Â The Parabolic SAR pinpoints trends to qualify a P&F buy/sell signal as one to
avoid or take for trade entry. With Bollinger Bands, there is a further refinement of the methodology
on Squeeze points – statistical volatility contraction/expansion is considered significant
where the column length between bands is equal to or less than the previous squeeze.
In conclusion, Jeremy du Plessis revives a revered ancient craft of pure price analysis to transform
demand/supply analytics into relevant trading practices for current market conditions.Ð’Â It is the
depth of his insights that gives you the foresight to thoroughly understand why charting price using
only P&F methods is conclusive, without the need for other forms of charting.

The apple is a native of Caucasus Mountain and has been cultivated from Pre-history times. It is
now grown in all parts of the world. Apple is a fleshy fruit of the tree of the species Malus domestica
and it is in the rose family Rosaceae. The apple is a pomaceous fruit, prized for its high yields and
long storage life. The tree is believed to have originated from Asia, and now more than 7,500
varieties of the fruits are grown all over the world. The apple tree usually grows to about 5-12 m in
height. They are available in a number of sizes, shapes, colours, etc. Apples are very helpful in the
maintenance of good health and in the treatment of many diseases. Apples are indicative of good
health as shown below:
They are a source of mineral called boron, which helps promote strong bone growth. Apples are
useful in dry hacking cough. Apple juice is useful in kidney stone trouble. Apples aid in the lowering
of blood cholesterol level, with the help of Pectin present in them. Good for asthma, heart disease,
and cancers such as lung, breast, colon, and liver Apples are very useful in acute and chronic
dysentery among children. To maintain urinary tract health. For the treatment of constipation apples
are very helpful.
Granny Smith apples are freckled green. They have a mild flavor with a good balance of sweetness
and tartness, moderately juicy flesh. Available all year round. McIntosh apples were developed by a
farmer named John McIntosh. It has a bright red skin sometimes tinged with green, and a
medium-crisp, tart-sweet. Available September to June.

Apple cider vinegar has been used by women since centuries, for getting a soft, clear and beautiful
skin. It promotes circulation in the small blood capillaries that irrigate the skin. It is antiseptic and
combats yeasts, viruses and bacteria that can cause infection. Apple cider vinegar also dissolves
fatty deposits on the skin's surface and reduces scaly conditions; thus, promoting a softer, smoother
appearance. It serves as a good topical treatment in most cases of acne. This is because it helps in
dissolving the oil and sebum that clogs pores. The vinegar has been used in various toners and
masks to clear acne and get a smooth appearance. Read on further to know some apple cider
vinegar facial recipes. How To Make Facials With Apple Cider Vinegar Boil 1 cup of water. Remove

CafГ© Seating Columns are basically ashtrays that stand up and stand-alone. Mostly they are
made of metal and allow outdoor smoking without leaving cigarette butts on the ground. This keeps
the cigarette trash out and keeps the area clean and free of debris. There are many different types
of CafГ© Seating Columns, and it depends on what color, size and costs that you want in a
CafГ© Seating Column. Most outdoor venues have some type of outdoor ashtray for smokers.
The one that is most popular is the CafГ© Seating Column. This is a type that fits on a table and it
requires little maintenance.
You can’t even tell that the Café Seating Column is an active ashtray. It looks like part of
a tabletop. This is also vandal proof, which saves on repair bills and replacing the column. There are
different costs depending on who you get your cafГ© seating column from and where. You can
order this from anywhere and have it installed or install it yourself. This keeps a clean place for
people to smoke and it gives them a place to dispose their used cigarettes. This really is an
innovation for a smoker.
The cafГ© seating column is very popular with restaurants and other outside businesses who
have smoking patrons. This is a way of keeping both smokers and non smokers both happy. This is
also in accordance with laws and regulations regarding smoking areas. This has to be taken into
consideration as well as comfort of your patrons. Most cities have quite a lot of regulations regarding
outdoor smoking and smoking areas in general, and the rules are getting stricter.
To keep in accordance with local laws, let me suggest that a cafГ© seating column will be your
best bet if you have any type of outdoor cafГ© or outdoor business that have smokers as patrons.
This will help you keep in line with the laws of your particular city, state, or county. The beauty of this
column is the fact that it basically looks like an umbrella so that it does not look like an ashtray.
On 27 February 1917 Sir Alfred Mond, an MP and First Commissioner of Works, wrote to the Prime
Minister David Lloyd George to propose the establishment of a National War Museum. This proposal
was accepted by the War Cabinet on 5 March 1917 and the decision announced in The Times on 26
March. A committee was established, chaired by Mond, to oversee the collection of material to be
exhibited in the new museum.
This National War Museum Committee set about collecting material to illustrate Britain's war effort
by dividing into subcommittees examining such subjects as the Army, the Navy, the production of
munitions, and women's war work. There was an early appreciation of the need for exhibits to reflect
personal experience in order to prevent the collections becoming dead relics. Sir Martin Conway, the
Museum's first Director General, said that exhibits must "be vitalised by contributions expressive of
the action, the experiences, the valour and the endurance of individuals". The museum's first curator
and secretary was Charles ffoulkes, who had previously been curator of the Tower of London
armouries. In July 1917 Mond made a visit to the Western Front in order to study how best to
organise the museum's growing collection. While in France he met French government ministers,
and Field Marshal Haig, who reportedly took great interest in his work. In December 1917 the name
was changed to the Imperial War Museum after a resolution from the India and Dominions
Committee of the museum.
The museum was opened by the King at the Crystal Palace on 9 June 1920. During the opening
ceremony, Sir Alfred Mond addressed the King on the behalf of committee, saying that 'it was hoped
to make the museum so complete that every one who took part in the war, however obscurely,
would find therein an example or illustration of the sacrifice he or she made' and that the museum
'was not a monument of military glory, but a record of toil and sacrifice' . Shortly afterwards the
Imperial War Museum Act 1920 was passed and established a Board of Trustees to oversee the
governance of the museum. To reflect the museum's Imperial remit the board included appointees
of the governments of India, South Africa, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. While the Act was
being debated, some Parliamentarians felt that that museum would perpetuate an undesirable war
spirit and Commander Joseph Kenworthy MP said that he would 'refuse to vote a penny of public
money to commemorate such suicidal madness of civilisation as that which was shown in the late
War' . By November 1921 the museum had received 2,290,719 visitors.
In 1924 the museum moved to the Imperial Institute building (demolished in the 1950s and 1960s to
make way for Imperial College) in South Kensington. While this location was more central and in a
prestigious area for museums, the accommodation itself proved cramped and inadequate and in
1936 a new permanent location was found south of the River Thames in Southwark.
The building, designed by James Lewis was the former Bethlem Royal Hospital which had been
vacated following the hospital's relocation to Beckenham in Kent. The site was owned by Lord
Rothermere, who had originally intended to demolish the building entirely in order to provide a public
park in what was a severely overcrowded area of London. Eventually the central portion of the
hospital building was retained while its two extensive wings were removed and the resulting space
named Geraldine Mary Harmsworth Park, after Lord Rothermere's mother. Sir Martin Conway
described the building as '...a fine building, really quite noble building, with a great portico, a
distinguishing dome, and two great wings added to it for the accommodation of lunatics no longer
required. This particular building can be made to contain our collection admirably, and we shall
preserve from destruction quite a fine building which otherwise will disappear' . The 'distinguishing
dome' was added by Sydney Smirke in 1846 and housed the hospital's chapel, and is now the
museum's reading room. The museum was reopened by the Duke of York (later King George VI) in
its new accommodation on 7 July 1936.
With the outbreak of the Second World War in 1939, the museum began to collect material
documenting the conflict. The museum initially remained open but was closed for the duration of the
war in September 1940 with the onset of the Blitz. On 31 January 1941 the museum was struck by a
Luftwaffe bomb which fell on the naval gallery. A number of ship models were damaged by the blast
and a Short Seaplane, which had flown at the Battle of Jutland, was destroyed. While closed to the
public the museum's building was used for a variety of purposes connected to the war effort, such
as a repair garage for government motor vehicles, a centre for Air Raid Precautions civil defence
lectures and a fire fighting training school. In October 1945 the museum mounted a temporary
exhibition, the first since the end of the war in August, which showcased technologies developed by
the Petroleum Warfare Department. These included the submarine fuel pipeline PLUTO, the fog
dispersal method FIDO, and flame weapons such as the Churchill Crocodile and Wasp Universal
Carrier. However, due to bomb damage to both the building and exhibits, the museum was obliged
to reopen its galleries piecemeal. The museum reopened a portion of its galleries in November
1946. A third of the galleries were opened in 1948 and a further wing opened in 1949.
In 1953, with Commonwealth forces engaged in Korea and Malaya the museum began its current
policy of collecting material from all modern conflicts in which British or Commonwealth forces were
involved. However, despite this expansion of remit, the early postwar period was a period of decline
for the museum. Dr Noble Frankland, the museum's Director from 1960 to 1982, described the
museum's galleries in 1955 as appearing 'dingy and neglected' and in a 'dismal state of decay' the
museum's 'numerous stunning exhibits' notwithstanding.
In 1966 the Museum's Southwark building was extended to provide collections storage and other
facilities, the first major expansion since the Museum had moved to the site. The development also
included a purpose-built cinema. Two years later in 1968 a pair of 15-inch naval guns were installed
in front of the Museum. Both had previously been mounted in Royal Navy warships (one from HMS
Ramillies and the other mounted on HMS Resolution and later HMS Roberts) and had been fired in
action during the Second World War.
Later that year on 13 October the Museum was attacked by an arsonist, Timothy John Daly, who
claimed he was acting in protest against the exhibition of militarism to children. He caused damage
valued at approximately 200,000, not counting the loss of irreplaceable books and documents. On
his conviction in 1969 he was sentenced to four years in prison.
By 1983 the museum was again looking to redevelop the Southwark site and approached
engineering firm Arup to plan a phased programme of works that would expand the building's
exhibition space, provide appropriate environmental controls to protect collections, and improve
facilities for visitors. The first phase of these works, started in 1986, created 8,000m2 of gallery
space of which 4,6002 was new, and saw the conversion of what was previously the hospital's
courtyard into a centrepiece Large Exhibits Gallery. This gallery featured a strengthened ground
floor (to support the weight of very heavy exhibits), a first floor mezzanine and second storey
viewing balcony. Into this space were placed tanks, artillery pieces, vehicles, ordnance and aircraft
from the First World War to the Falklands War, and for some years the museum was marketed as
'The new Imperial War Museum'. This atrium, with its concentration of military hardware, has been
described as 'the biggest boys' bedroom in London'. This first phase cost 16.7 million (of which 12
million was provided by the government) and was opened by the Queen on 29 June 1989.
Panorama of the atrium. Ground floor exhibits include: 'Devil' a Mark V tank; 'Ole Bill' an LGOC
B-type bus, V-2 and Polaris missiles, and (sand-coloured, extreme right) a Grant tank used by
Bernard Montgomery. Suspended aircraft include a Sopwith Camel, Heinkel He 162 and (partially
obscured) a Supermarine Spitfire which flew in the Battle of Britain.
A second stage of redevelopment, providing a further 1,600m2 of floor space was completed in
1994 and a third stage in 2000. The latter expansion, the Southwest Infill, was partly funded by a
12.6 million grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund and provided 5,860m2 of gallery space and
educational facilities over six floors The development included the installation of the museum's
Holocaust Exhibition which was opened by the Queen on 6 June 2000. This was the first permanent
exhibition dedicated to the Holocaust in a UK museum, and had taken five years at a cost of 5
This period also saw the use of the surrounding park for purposes of commemoration or the
promotion of peace. In 1999 a Soviet War Memorial was unveiled by the then Secretary of State for
Defence George Robertson, and the Russian ambassador Yuri Fokine. The date of the unveiling (9
May) was significant as that day is marked as Victory Day in Russia. Also in May 1999 the Dalai
Lama opened a Tibetan Peace Garden, commissioned by the Tibet Foundation, in the park. The
garden features a bronze cast of the Kalachakra Mandala, contemporary western sculpture, and a
pillar inscribed with a message from the Dalai Lama in English, Tibetan, Hindi and Chinese.
In August 2009 the museum announced the creation of the Imperial War Museum Foundation.
Chaired by Jonathan Harmsworth, the great-grandson of the 1st Viscount who had secured the
museum's Bethlem building, the foundation is charged with raising funds to support the
refurbishment of the museum's permanent galleries. At the time of the announcement, the museum
was planning for the refurbishment of its First World War gallery by 2014, the centenary of the
outbreak of the war, and for the refurbishment of its Second World War and Post-1945 galleries by
2020, the museum's own centenary.
From the 1970s onwards the museum began to expand onto other sites. The first of these sites, a
former RAF and United States Army Air Force airfield at Duxford in Cambridgeshire, was opened to
the public on a regular basis in June 1976. HMS Belfast, a light cruiser moored in the Pool of
London, has been under the care of the museum since 1978.
The Duxford branch of the Imperial War Museum houses its large exhibits, including the aircraft and
military and naval vehicles collection. The museum has seven main exhibition buildings with nearly
200 military and civil aircraft. A historic airfield, used for military flying since 1916; the last
operational flight at Duxford was made in July 1961. The museum originally only used one of the
site's hangars as temporary storage for part of its aircraft collection; however, following a series of
popular air displays from 1973 onwards, the museum acquired the entire site for its use in February
The aircraft collection includes types such as a British Aircraft Corporation TSR-2 and the only
SR-71 Blackbird on display outside the United States of America. The military vehicle collection
includes command caravans used by Field Marshal Montgomery. The naval collection includes an
example of an X-craft midget submarine and the Vosper motor torpedo boat MTB-71. The site
provides accommodation for a number of regimental museums (including those of the Parachute
Regiment, named Airborne Assault, and the Royal Anglian Regiment), and also provides additional
collections storage. The site remains an active airfield and hosts regular air displays.
Care of the light cruiser HMS Belfast, which had served throughout the Second World War, was
transferred to the museum on 1 March 1978 after Shirley Williams, the then Secretary of State for
Education and Science, accepted that the ship was "a unique demonstration of an important phase
of our history and technology".
She had been preserved for the nation since 1971 in the Pool of London under the care of a private
charitable trust, the HMS Belfast Trust; the first such preservation of a naval ship since
HMSÐ’Â Victory. The museum, along with the National Maritime Museum and the Ministry of
Defence, had been involved in an earlier plan, which took place in the late 1960s, to preserve the
ship, which the government on that occasion had declined in 1971.
HMS Belfast was a notable vessel. Launched in March 1938 she served throughout the Second
World War, participating in the Battle of North Cape and firing some of the first shots of Operation
Overlord. She later served in the Korean War. The ship left Singapore on 26 March 1962 for the UK
where she made a final visit to Belfast and after an exercise in the Mediterranean was paid off on 24
August 1963. In service for 24 years HMS Belfast was, in the view of historian Noble Frankland,
capable of representing "a whole generation of [historical evidence]".
In 1984 the Cabinet War Rooms were opened to the public as a branch of the museum. The War
Rooms are an underground complex that had been used as a command centre by the British
government throughout the Second World War. Located beneath the Treasury building in the
Whitehall area of Westminster, the facilities were constructed before the war in anticipation of
extremely destructive aerial bombing of London. They became operational in 1939 and were in
constant operation for the duration of the war. The complex was abandoned in August 1945 after
the surrender of Japan. The historical value of the Rooms was recognised early on, and the public
were able to visit the War Rooms by appointment. However, the practicalities of allowing public
access to a site beneath a working government office meant that only 4,500 of 30-40,000 annual
applicants to visit the War Rooms could be admitted. During the 1970s the Cabinet Office and the
Department for the Environment, which was responsible for the Rooms after 1975, raised the
possibility of the museum taking over the War Rooms. The museum was reluctant due to its new
commitments related to Duxford and HMS Belfast, but agreed in 1982. The scheme was keenly
supported by the then Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, an admirer of Britain's wartime Prime
Minister Winston Churchill, and she opened the War Rooms in April 1984.
Following a major expansion in 2003 a suite of rooms, used as accommodation by Churchill, his wife
and close associates, were added to the museum. The restoration of these rooms, which since the
war had been stripped out and used for storage, cost 7.5 million. In 2005 the War Rooms were
rebranded as the Churchill Museum and Cabinet War Rooms, with 850m2 of the site redeveloped
as a biographical museum exploring Churchill's life. The museum, the development of which cost a
further 6 milion raised from private fundraising, makes extensive use of audiovisual technology. The
centrepiece is a 15m interactive table which enables visitors to access digitised material, particularly
from the Churchill Archives Centre, via an 'electronic filing cabinet'.
The Imperial War Museum North was opened in Trafford, Greater Manchester in 2002, the first
branch of the museum outside of southeast England. The museum's first floor main gallery space
houses the permanent exhibitions. These consist of a chronological display which runs around the
gallery's 200m perimeter and six thematic displays in 'silos' within the space. The walls of the gallery
space are used as screens for the projection of an hourly audiovisual presentation, the Big Picture.
Though exhibiting fewer large objects than other museum branches, Imperial War Museum North
features in its main gallery a Russian T-34 tank, a United States Marine Corps AV-8B Harrier jet,
and a British 18-pounder field gun which fired the British Army's first shot of the First World War.
The museum also hosts a programme of temporary exhibitions, mounted in a separate gallery.
The project to construct a branch of the museum in the north of England, was launched in January
1999 by the then Culture Secretary Chris Smith. The new building was the first of the branches to be
purpose-built as a museum. Designed by architect Daniel Libeskind, it was his first building in
Britain. Libeskind building, overlooking the Manchester Ship Canal at Salford Quays, was based on
the concept of a globe shattered by conflict into shards and reassembled. These shards,
representing earth, air and water, give the building its shape. Originally budgeted at 40 million, the
museum was eventually completed for 28.5 million after anticipated funding was not forthcoming.
The museum was funded by local, national and European development agencies, by private
donations and by Peel Holdings, a local transport and property company which contributed 12.5
The Imperial War Museum has had three homes. Originally housed in the Crystal Palace at
Sydenham Hill, in 1920, the museum moved to space in the Imperial Institute in South Kensington
during 1924, and finally in 1936 the museum acquired a permanent home in the former Bethlem
Royal Hospital in Southwark. The hospital building was designed by the hospital surveyor, James
Lewis, from plans submitted by John Gandy and other architects, and construction completed in
October 1814. The hospital consisted of a range of buildings 580 feet long with a basement and
three storeys, parallel to Lambeth Road, with a central entrance under a portico.
The building was substantially altered in 1835 by architect Sydney Smirke. In order to provide more
space, he added blocks at either end of the frontage, and galleried wings on either side of the
central portion. He also added a small single-storey lodge, still in existence, at the Lambeth Road
gate. Later, between 1844-46, the central cupola was replaced with a copper-clad dome in order to
expand the chapel beneath. The building also featured a theatre in a building to the rear of the site.
The building remained substantially unchanged until vacated by the hospital in 1930. After the
freehold was purchased by Lord Rothermere, the wings were demolished to leave the original
central portion (with the dome now appearing disproportionately tall) and Smirke's later wings. When
the museum moved into the building in 1936 the ground floor of the central portion was occupied by
the principal art gallery, with the east wing housing the Naval gallery and the west wing the Army
gallery. The Air Force gallery was housed in the former theatre. The first floor comprised further art
galleries (including rooms dedicated to William Orpen and John Lavery), a gallery on women's war
work, and exhibits relating to transport and signals. The first floor also housed the museum's
photograph collection. The second floor housed the museum's library in its west wing, and in the
east wing the map collection and stored pictures and drawings. This division of exhibits by service,
and by civil or military activity, persisted until a wide-ranging redisplay of the galleries from the
1960s onwards.
The original hospital building is now largely occupied by corporate offices. A 1966 extension?
houses the library, art store, and document archives.Redevelopments in the 1980s created
exhibition space over five floors, along with the acquisition of the All Saints Annexe, a former
hospital building in Austral Street off West Square. The 1867 building, which backs onto Geraldine
Mary Harmsworth Park, was originally an orphanage opened by local philanthropist Charlotte
Sharman, then later used as a hospital. It houses the museum's photographic, film and sound
archives, and offices.
The Imperial War Museum's original collections date back to the material amassed by the National
War Museum Committee. The present departmental organisation came into being during the 1960s
as part of Frankland's reorganisation of the museum. The 1970s saw oral history gain increasing
prominence and in 1972 the museum created the Department of Sound Records (now the Sound
Archive) to record interviews with individuals who had experienced the First World War. Since the
opening of the Holocaust and Crimes against Humanity exhibitions, a collecting department has
been established to support them. The museum maintains an online database of its collections
named Collections Online.
Material from the collections are displayed at each of the museum's branches, and on five levels at
the Lambeth Road site. The basement is occupied by permanent galleries on the First and Second
World Wars, and of conflicts since 1945. The ground floor comprises the atrium, cinema, temporary
exhibition spaces, the permanent Children's War exhibition (extending into the basement), and
visitor facilities. The first floor provides the atrium mezzanine, education facilities, and a permanent
gallery, Secret War, exploring special forces, espionage and covert operations. The second floor
features the atrium viewing balcony, two art galleries, a temporary exhibition area and the
permanent Crimes against Humanity exhibition. The third floor houses the permanent Holocaust
Exhibition, and the fourth floor provides a further exhibition area in the vaulted roof space. From
November 2010 this area will accommodate the Lord Ashcroft Gallery, exhibiting the museum's own
collection of Victoria and George Crosses, and the private collection of Victoria Crosses amassed by
Michael Ashcroft.
The Department of Documents holds private papers such as letters and diaries from both individual
soldiers and civilians to high-ranking officers such as Field Marshals Bernard Montgomery, Sir John
French and Henry Maitland Wilson. Also of note are manuscripts by war poets Isaac Rosenberg and
Siegfried Sassoon. The Department holds the official British records of the Nuremberg and Tokyo
War Crimes Tribunals and a variety of other official records. The Department also houses the UK
National Inventory of War Memorials.
The Art department holds much of the work of official war artists from both world wars, and
contemporary art from after 1945. As early as 1920 the art collection held over 3,000 works and
included pieces by John Singer Sargent, Wyndham Lewis, John Nash and Christopher Nevinson.
The collection expanded again after the Second World War, holding around 70% of the 6,000 works
produced by the Ministry of Information's War Artists Advisory Committee. The collection also
includes a large number of propaganda posters from many countries and periods.[a] In 1972 the
museum's Artistic Records Committee was established to commission artists to cover contemporary
The Film and Video Archive is one of the oldest film archives in Britain and preserves a range of
historically significant film and video material. The collection includes the official British film record of
the First World War and the 1916 feature film The Battle of the Somme, which is inscribed on
UNESCO's Memory of the World register. The collection also includes the official British film record
of the Second World War, amateur film and film of other conflicts since 1945. Material from the
collection was used to make a number of well-known TV documentary series including The Great
War and The World at War.
The Photograph Archive preserves the official British photographic record of both World Wars and
conflicts since 1945. It currently holds more than 6,000,000 images and the Second World War
collection includes the work of photographers such as Bill Brandt, Cecil Beaton and Bert Hardy. Both
the Film and Photograph Archives are official repositories for material produced by the Ministry of
Defence and so include material from contemporary operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The Department of Exhibits and Firearms is responsible for the care of the Museum's collection of
three-dimensional objects. The cores of the collection are the firearms collection, collections of
artillery, ordnance and vehicles, and medals and decorations such as the Victoria Cross and George
Cross. Many of the department's larger exhibits are on display and can be seen in the photographs
below. Other exhibits include artillery pieces whose crew won the Victoria Cross, a Lee Enfield rifle
used by T. E. Lawrence, and a Colt 1911 automatic pistol owned by Winston Churchill.
The Department of Printed Books is responsible for the Museum collection of printed materials
including books, maps and ephemera. When the Museum was established the distinguished
historian Sir Charles Oman was given responsibility for the library. In 1922 the library collection
contained a reported 20,000 items and 60,000 items in 1953. Today the Museum gives the size of
its library collection as 270,000 items.
The Sound Archive, originally named the Department of Sound Records, administers a collection of
over 56,000 hours of historical recordings and was opened to the public in July 1977. The core of
this collection are oral history interviews with people who were affected by war in the 20th century.
This collection has been used for a series of radio programmes and books, called Forgotten Voices,
about war in the 20th century. The collection also includes historic broadcasts, and actuality sound
effects recorded during conflicts.
The Department of Holocaust and Genocide History supports the Holocaust and Crimes against
Humanity exhibitions. The department seeks to acquire archival material and artefacts to illustrate its
subject; notable acquisitions include the Gianfranco Moscati collection which documents the
persecution of the Jews during the Second World War. The department also answers public and
academic enquiries, advises other bodies working on related subjects, represents the museum at
relevant events and supports the museums' educational activities. It also occasionally undertakes
external consultancy, for instance assisting with the establishment of a memorial room at Srebrenica
in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Since 1917 the museum has had six directors. The first was Sir Martin Conway, a noted art
historian, mountaineer and explorer. He was knighted in 1895 for his efforts to map the Karakoram
mountain range of the Himalayas, and was Slade Professor of Fine Arts at the University of
Cambridge from 1901 to 1904. Conway held the post of Director until his death in 1937, when he
was succeeded by Leslie Bradley. Bradley had served in the First World War in the Middlesex
Regiment before being invalided out in 1917. He later became acquainted with Charles ffoulkes,
who invited him to join the museum where he was initially engaged in assembling the museum's
poster collection. Bradley retired in 1960 and was succeeded by Dr Noble Frankland. Frankland had
served as a navigator in RAF Bomber Command, winning a Distinguished Flying Cross. While a
Cabinet Office official historian he co-authored a controversial official history of the RAF strategic air
campaign against Germany. Frankland retired in 1982 and was succeeded by Dr Alan Borg who had
previously been at the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts. In 1995 Borg moved to the Victoria and
Albert Museum and was succeeded by Sir Robert Crawford, who had originally been recruited by
Frankland as a research assistant in 1968. Upon Crawford's retirement in 2008 he was succeeded
by Diane Lees, previously Director of the V&A Museum of Childhood. She was noted in the media
as the first woman appointed to lead a British national museum

Today, the Apple iPod is considered the market leader; it attracts all the attention from tech- savvy
consumers across the globe. Infact, 2007 industry statistics show that the Apple iPod has sold more
than 110 million units worldwide. This makes it the best-selling product in the history of digital audio
players. Let us know why:
Apple iPod is considered the best MP3 players till date and why not, its interface is simply great, and
has only improved over time. It is the most user-friendly gizmo; you just have to love music and you
can start playing the moment you lay your hands on an Apple iPod. Moreover, the iPod is typically
the smallest and lightest music player available. And to top it all, Apple iPod has a large memory
capability built into a compact concoction, and little headphones that fit right into your ears.
If there is one thing Apple is known for, it is constant product releases. Each of their products has
several different sub-types, and the Apple iPod is the prime example of this practice. Among the
popular models of the Apple iPod are the iPod Touch, iPod Classic, iPod Nano and iPod Shuffle.
These too have subtypes or what is popularly known as different generation. Infact, there are as
many as 20 different avatars of the Apple iPod.
The Apple iPod is not only good for music but also if you prefer it to watch movies and play games.
The iPod indeed has superior memory that efficiently performs these functions. Of all the Apple
iPods, the iPod Touch is the frontrunner. This amazing device can be summed up in two words:
style and ease. The media player's touch screen controls, 'cover flow,' album art, EQ settings, play
list management, and even screen transitions are simply beautiful.
Apples are delicious fruits that are also very nutritious and it has been discovered that eating apples
prevents various diseases from affecting the human body. It is for this reason that you should know
how to grow apples. Growing of apples is a process that needs to be adhered down to the last
detail. The first thing to do when thinking of growing your own apples is getting the seeds and this
can be saved whenever you eat an apple in order to save of buying the seeds from a store. The
seeds should be laid out for a few days in order for them to dry so that there is no moisture on the
After the drying process the seeds they should be covered with a damp paper towel and placed in
the refrigerator for a month and you should check regularly to make sure the paper towel is still
damp. After this the seeds should have sprouted and then you can proceed to put them in a small
cup of potting soil where they should be watered daily. A small apple seedling should appear after a
few days and this is when you should transplant it to a larger pot and maintain the daily watering.
You can then proceed to pick a location for your tree and this should be somewhere that gets full
sun and also convenient as well as big enough to grow. Note that a matured apple tree can go as
high as 20 ft. after the little sapling has gotten big enough you should then transplant it and be sure
not to cut off any roots. It is advisable to plant in spring and the planting hole should be dug much
wider than the roots in order to allow them to grow easily.
The tree is supposed to be watered so as to eliminate air pockets and then spread a mulch of
hardwood chips a few inches thick and this is in a 3 ft circle around the tree. You are not supposed
to add any nitrogen resources such as fertilizer when planting so you should wait a month or two.
Nature should take care of the rest as after one year you can stop watering the tree unless you live
in an extremely dry area. You can try and mesh fence the tree to avoid it being damaged and spray
it with homebrew spray.
Pruning is supposed to be done as little as possible in the first few years and this is so that the fruit
bearing will not be delayed. It is not a must however that the tree will produce a fruit so you should
be hopeful that it does. The growing of the fruit will take pruning, thinning as well as keeping insects
and diseases at bay among other things. It is for this reason that you should also research on the
pests and diseases that are in your area in order to know how to avoid them from affecting your
apple tree.

If background noise has ever bothered you when listening to music, then noise cancellation
headphones may be just the thing you need. There are many places where listening to music on
headphones can be a relaxing escape, such as on a commuter train or bus. However, surrounding
sounds such as traffic and conversations can be very annoying if you've ever tried this. Sometimes
even your home can lack the peace you want, with the unwanted sounds of lawn equipment, TVs
and radios, and neighborhood children.
How do noise cancellation headphones work? The headset contains a small circuit that samples
noise in the environment and then creates a sound wave which has the opposite polarity. This
sound wave cancels out the noise in the environment for the person wearing the headphones. This
leaves only the music to be heard.
It can be challenging to find a pair of noise cancellation headphones that really work. Some
low-quality brands just eat up batteries without really reducing your unwanted noise at all. Paying a
higher price doesn't necessarily mean you will be getting higher quality noise cancellation
headphones. The best thing to do is visit a store that sells a wide variety of options and test them
out yourself.
One thing to keep in mind as you try out different noise cancellation headphones is how long the
batteries are expected to last in each model. You should be able to use the headphones for at least
20 hours with a set of batteries. If you find a pair that work well but require a lot of batteries, think
about using rechargeable batteries in your noise cancellation headphones.
Are you bored and want to release your tension? Then music can be the best option for you and its
very helpful from very old times as well. You can have n number of Audio systems which you can

In a smart phone market dominated by the iPhone, Blackberry and various Android offerings,
Microsoft certainly has its work cut out to stake a viable claim on the market. In this spirit, it has
recently released 10 new phones running its Windows Phone 7 operating system. These phones
are manufactured by a range of companies – 5 by Android specialists HTC, and others by
LG, Samsung and Dell. With so many to choose from, which are the best and what are their key
The HTC HD7 comes with some great features, including a massive 4.3inch touchscreen. It has HD
video recording capabilities, a 5 megapixel camera and up to 16GB of storage, all of which make it
one of the most eagerly anticipated offerings from the Windows Phone 7 range. Apps such as Notes
and Photo Enhancer are good and a definite plus point. The screen is a good size but there's a
comparatively low number of pixels, which leads to the display quality being reduced. The build
quality is also not brilliant.
By contrast, the HTC Mozart boasts excellent build quality more familiar to regular users of HTC
phones. It's also thought to be the most successful Microsoft phone and it comes with an impressive
specification, including an 8 megapixel camera with Xenon flash. This provides good picture quality.
There's a 3.7inch touchscreen, making it an ideal size for carrying round. The apps are similar to
those on other HTC phones but they're definitely worth the money, as is the 8GB storage capacity
and attractive phone appearance.
Samsung's Omnia 7 is another good example of a Windows Phone 7 phone. It comes with a 5
megapixel camera and the high contrast AMOLED screen blows other LCD out of the water. The
loudspeaker is good, too, with barely any distortion. The apps from Samsung admittedly aren't that
brilliant, but the camera is excellent although you have to be patient with the focus. The build quality
and appearance of the phone are brilliant and the layout is also excellent, with the exception of the
location of the power button.
The LG Optimus 7Q gives you the best of both worlds in that it's (as yet) the only Windows Phone 7
phone to offer both touchscreen and QWERTY keyboard, although the addition of the keyboard
does add considerable bulk. It comes with a 3.5inch screen with 480 x 800 pixel resolution, plus a
decent 5 megapixel camera. The phone has 8GB storage capacity and good connectivity, which is a
plus. Overall, it's a good phone but its bulk and slightly uncomfortable keyboard let it down slightly.
Boot Camp tool is a comprehensive part of Apple's Leopard and Snow Leopard OS that assists Mac
users in creating a partition and installing Windows on Intel-based Macintosh computers. Although it
is designed for non-destructive repartitioning of hard disk, but sometimes it might work different from
what is expected. According to many Mac OS X users, Boot Camp has often been found to corrupt
or delete Mac OS X partitions, making it impossible to access the data by normal means.
In most of such situations, running fsck or Disk Utility doesn't bring any affect and thus the only
option left with the users is to recreate the lost partition. Doing so can no doubt be a suitable
workaround for this problem, but data restoration is possible only if you have a valid data backup in
place or use a Mac Data Recovery Software.
After a general description, here is a specific problem that narrows down this issue. Suppose you as
a Mac OS X user use Boot Camp to create a Windows partition. After the installation is successfully
done, when you view Mac OS X partition(s), they appear to be missing. More specifically, just a
single partitions that doesn't correspond to any of the existing partitions.
Reportedly, many Mac OS X user cannot view their partitions on trying to install a Windows version
that Boot Camp doesn't support. Most of these problems have been reported when attempt is made
to install Windows XP SP1. Service Pack 1 of Windows XP is not supported by Boot Camp, so you
should instead try to install Windows XP SP2 or later version.
This is the case of partition map corruption, so the prime solution to make your Mac workable is to
recreate lost partitions and restore from backup. In cases, when you cannot restore from backup,
running a Mac File Recovery utility can aid in recovering all lost files and folders. Mac Recovery
Software are exclusive products that can scan your crashed Mac drive and recover all the possible
information safely.
Stellar Phoenix Macintosh Data Recovery is one of the best ever-designed Mac File Recovery utility.
Compatible with Mac OS X 10.6.x Snow Leopard, 10.5.x Leopard, 10.4.x Tiger, and 10.3.9 Panther,
this software recognizes almost all file types for recovery. In addition, it provides you advanced
options like, disk cloning, RAW data recovery, and others.
Since the advent of Windows XP in 2001, there has been little change in the world of Microsoft
operating systems. However, in the intervening years, Apple OS X has taken the lead in the "ease of
use" stakes for operating systems. Windows Vista was Microsoft's challenge to that. It failed, as it
was not widely accepted, and was generally criticised by the IT community at large.
Microsoft learnt from the problems it faced at the initial release of Windows Vista. There was wide
incompatibility with various devices (all NVidia products were incompatible – that's over 50%
of graphics cards in the world) and other problems. These were eventually addressed, but Microsoft
didn't want to face the same problems with Windows 7. Thus they decided to run a very extensive
beta test of Windows 7 before release. By providing free beta versions of Windows 7 to anyone who
wanted it, Microsoft managed to iron out the major bugs before release.
Windows 7, due to its extensive beta testing, is one of the most well rounded and secure operating
systems ever released. Utilising the same User Access Control mechanism that Vista introduced, it
can provide an incredibly secure environment, especially for children. Parental Controls mimic those
found in Mac OS X, and can be set to restrict a child's exposure to unsuitable online content. Of
course, unlike Vista, in Windows 7, you can set the level of User Access Control that you would
prefer for your own usage.
Windows 7 is also covered for viruses by the free suite of security tools from Microsoft –
Microsoft Security Essentials. Deemed as a very competitive alternative to paid suites, Microsoft
Security Essentials will cover general day to day usage of the computer – from online
banking to youtube. For business users, all major internet security suites, including Babeltech
favourite AVG, now run on Windows 7.
The problem is that 32 bit computers can only see up to 4Gb of RAM. That includes all RAM: video
card RAM and main system RAM. As programs get more complex, the use more RAM, so things
start to slow down. By using a 64 bit structure, the computer can see up to 192Gb of memory
– not currently available to any consumer computer.
Along with this, Windows 7 makes use of ‘prefetching', which basically means that it loads up
the available memory on login with the programs you use the most. This means that those programs
appear to start up much faster than normal. Essentially Windows 7 is much faster than Windows XP
on a day to day scale.
The general user interface in Windows 7 is called Aero. Aero is a glass like theme, allowing the user
to change the opacity of windows, and generally get more out of multifunction of a computer. By
using Aero Peek, you can quickly flip through the currently open windows and see what's happening
The taskbar has changed as well. No longer will each open window list as a new item in the taskbar
– they will be grouped under the program name. When you scroll over the program icon, you
will see a popup of all currently open windows, which you can click on to pull into the foreground. Of
course, if you don't like this, you can always change it back to the traditional taskbar arrangement
– that's another option in Windows 7.
The file structuring has changed slightly as well – Windows 7 is trying to introduce library
folders to the file system. Essentially this means that instead of having to root through directories to
get to a specific file under My Documents Say you want to have all your backed up documents on
your external drive and all your normal documents viewable under the same "folder". This can be
achieved by setting them all with the "documents" library tag. It's very simple, and works well.
Windows 7 is designed to make everything easier. Not only is it infinitely customisable, but it's far
easier to get everything going. No longer do you have to install specific drivers each time you plug
something in – Windows 7 will simply look for the driver on the internet and install it
automatically. In fact, in the majority of cases, when we initially installed Windows 7 on a client's
computer, by the time the main screen booted up, the computer was fully functional, requiring no
more drivers to be installed.
When Windows XP came out, there was no concept that it would survive as long as it has. Whilst it
has been patched in the form of several service packs to provide operability, it is still not designed to
work that well with modern computing components. For example, 64 bit processing wasn't
considered to be a consumer level option in 2001. Since then, there has been a 64 bit release of
Windows XP, but it is not widely compatible.
Windows XP in general will not be able to keep up with the increasing requirements of RAM in
modern computing. More and more, we'll see programs come out that require substantial amounts
of RAM, such that it will make Windows XP non-functional in a multifunctional world. Windows 7 has
been designed from the ground up to take into consideration the modern components available for

Basically, a headphone has three parts: the driver, the earpiece and the attachment system. The
driver is the ‘sound producer’. It is a transducer which converts electrical signal to the
audio sound that you hear once you place the headphones on your ears. The earpiece is the
physical part which you put to your ears. There are a lot of types of earpiece that you can choose
from. Finally, the attachment system is the part which holds everything together. This can either be
the headbands - for types which have one - or the wires which hold two ear buds together. The job
of the attachment system if to make the earpiece somehow fit your ears.
Headphones can be attached to any music player, to mobile phones or to a personal computer. If
you want to get rid of the outside noise and you just want to concentrate on the sound, there are
noise-canceling variants that you can choose from.Ð’Â The open-type headphones generally have
better sound quality than the noise canceling type.
When it comes to the design of the headphones, then you can choose one that will best suit your
application. Clip-on headphones do not have headbands, the earpiece can easily be attached to
your ears. There are also wireless headphones that are available. Ear buds are made up of
earpieces that can fit the inner part of your ear. Headsets combine the functionality of a microphone

Spandex is a rapid development in recent years, the high elasticity of synthetic fibers, it is an
extraordinary extension of and respond to performance makes clothes fit better and more
comfortable. Spandex bare yarn can be in the form of use, but in most cases is to be further
processed into bare wire core yarn, covering yarn, or co-twisting, so as to different proportions with
natural fiber, chemical fiber mix, knitted or woven through the formation of multi - the various forms
of elastic fabric.
As the yarn is a spandex core, outsourcing one or several non-elastic staple fiber spun into yarn.
Get a good feel spandex core-spun yarn and appearance, with natural fiber yarns for the
outsourcing of fiber moisture absorption, and can be used according to the product flexibility to
choose different values. Spandex Core-spun elastic yarn compared with other notable feature is the
yarn tension state in the core wire is not exposed, so dyeing effect is good, should do so, including a
variety of colors, including dark-colored products. And compared to other types of elastic yarn, core
yarn strength low, most single yarn strength is only equivalent to the same size outsourcing fiber
yarn alone 80% -90%.
Is a spandex as the core, inelastic filament or staple fiber yarns by spiral-shaped way spandex
elongation of the state to be formed coated elastic yarn. Spandex Covered Yarn is a hollow spindle
with a special equipment for processing the whole machine is divided into elastic core yarn feeding,
stretching and relaxation-coated take-up such as three parts. Covered Yarn and other elastic yarn is
one of the most obvious difference between the core wire-free twist.
Spandex Covered Yarn in the silk and the outsourcing of core-sheath layer of the relationship
between the clear layer of the core wire and the outsourcing together hold between the degree of
harmony was significantly lower than core yarn twisting, so the elasticity is higher than the latter two.
Covered Yarn Tension state has exposed the core phenomenon, it would be inappropriate to do a
dark-colored products. Covered Yarn touch, a more hard-core-spun yarn, its strong outsourcing
layer filament or yarn strength, so strong compared with core-spun yarn with a high specification.
Covered Yarn winding for relaxation, depending on the use of their take-up rate is generally 60%
-95%, which is different from the core yarn Hop twisting, weaving process parameters for greater
Will be stretch Spandex side while the other inelastic two twisting yarn blend made, and generally
install a special yarn feeding devices produced on ring twister. Spandex yarn or filament yarn with a
variety of stretch combined with the production of twisting, and are suitable for small batch
production of many varieties, and even a twister can simultaneously process several varieties. In the
tension state, the spandex yarn and other yarns twist around each other between the relations, and
therefore a state of spandex yarns in the yarn tension exposed staining could easily lead to color
flower color, not so dark products. Spandex combined with the twister's strength is equal to the
non-elastic yarn with the powerful, it is more spandex core-spun yarn with high strength
specifications. All twister in spandex spandex with other non-elastic yarn holds together have less
than between the spandex core-spun yarn, reflected in spandex core-spun yarn is higher than the
degree of retraction, it combined the flexibility of higher core-spun yarn twister .
Spandex core-spun yarn on a spinning frame spinning in general, for the production of Slub Yarn,
slub yarn device needs to be added, but also to transform the existing spinning machine. In
stabilizing the front roller speed at the same time, after the adoption of the changing speed rollers to
achieve the purpose of a bamboo, which is mentioned in front of the slub yarn long bamboo
production methods.
To stabilize the product quality, the first roller gear at close to adding a switch sensors, to control the
front roller speed, due to mechanical reasons, the 5% range of fluctuation within the servo motor
can be adjusted by the weight of the yarn irregularity. Spinning the front, rear rack column to double
column yarn for the installation of spandex yarn guiding body, which may be changed to
single-column two-column, rear column because of location too small, the double column yarn shelf
bracket transformation, in the care Block Center for drilling, re-create column wick will not affect the
strength of demand.
If spinning hairdryer Department by space constraints, can not install spandex sprocket bracket, you
can observe the mouth of the hairdryer to retain under the premise of the hairdryer truncated,
re-welded case back. In line with spandex Situo seat width, the installation of a bracket, to facilitate
the front roller chain adjustment, so that chain roller seat can be adjusted freely in the horizontal
direction, and sometimes need to re-processed according to the width of cradle handle custom
spandex wire wheel bracket, so that the guide wire with the right wheel and cradle.
Equipment modification, due to the cotton fibers coated with polyurethane, the original use of leather
roller pressure arising due to the higher hardness does not open, spit hard-head phenomenon, the
need to replace the low hardness of soft rolls, in order to improve the level of the base Yarn uneven
. Equipped with gauge blocks and wire ring in the interest of some of the base yarns and bamboo
mixed numbers to consider, with a relatively small gauge blocks and wire rings, bead cross-section
in order to use the friction coefficient is small, does not damage spandex prevail in order to ensure
yarn quality. Spinning on the cradle, if used for too long, uneven pressure will lead to drawing force
and drawing force gripping areas are incompatible, resulting in abnormal bamboo, therefore, need to
re-adjust the cradle pressure, if necessary, replace the part of the spring in order to solve the
problem unusual bamboo.
As part of Spandex slub slub twist is small, easy-coated spandex yarn can be adjusted periodically
based guide wire wheel hand position, so that spandex should be maintained at locations and with a
roving yarn guide hooks, so that smooth roving yarn guide and found that timely processing of
non-performing parts replacement. In order to prevent hollow yarn, yarn and broken wire dual-core
yarn, tube yarn breakage is no longer joints, after re-insert the air traffic control, the joint use of the
media, and yarn, spandex yarn should always check whether the tour to normal feeding, bamboo is
normal, to ensure that the operating normally. Equipment has been modified after the spandex
core-spun yarn, spinning 5.83-7.28tex Spandex slub good effect, spinning regular and irregular
bamboo two kinds of bamboo yarn to substantially increase the value-added products, we can use a
smaller input to obtain a higher economic efficiency.
Slub Yarn Slub parameters include bamboo roughness, slub length and slub spacing three
parameters, different combinations of these three parameters directly affect the style and thickness
of knitted fabric, knitted products and thus the different parameters of the bamboo different
requirements. Are classified into thin bamboo bamboo slub thick, coarse bamboo slub; slub slub
slub length is divided into short-and long bamboo slub yarn; bamboo spacing generally have
short-term and long-pitch festival distance of the points, short pitch slub yarn pitch in the context of
2cm-10cm long slub yarn pitch pitch is generally 20cm-40cm range. The bamboo roughness, slub
length and slub spacing are referring to general situations, special circumstances beyond those
limits may also be a breakthrough.
Knitting with slub yarn spinning process to apply basically to the traditional knitting yarn process.
After the district in which spinning drafting multiple, generally should be between 1.2 times -1.3
times, and that means drafting the appropriate multiple of enlarged area, appropriate to reduce
distraction force, reduce the volatility of drawing power will help to reduce a "hard head . " Under
such circumstances, the base yarn, the smaller numbers of Fine Slub is particularly important.
Gauge block matching Spinning JAW should facilitate fiber drawing force control and stability, slub
yarn, it should be in the average numbers and the numbers have to choose between the base yarn.
Knitting with slub front roller speed settings generally lower than regular knitting yarn 10% -20%, for
the bamboo coarse, long slub yarn, in order to reduce the yarn strength evenly, reducing spun yarn
breakage, front roller speed should be further low settings. Clearly, the size of the front roller speed
settings and a resolution of the base yarn, bamboo roughness, length and other parameters of
Choice of rings should be conducive to reducing the size of the fluctuations in gas-ring tension,
whether it is medium or coarse yarn numbers are appropriate to adopt the self-lubricating ring. Wire
ring spun Slub Yarn-matching are the difficulties of cross-sectional shape of wire loop with high arch
is appropriate. Spun yarn twist factor generally set at between 340-360.
In order to spin a good knitting slub, slub yarn according to the basic requirements and quality
characteristics to ensure that spinning in a good state, for the drafting system, to ensure pressure
stability, rubber roller, rubber ring, the pin without playing Gordon, For the winding twisting system
must be steel collar, spindles, guide yarn hook mind, to minimize fluctuations in the tension during
winding. Strengthen the spindle disk, spindle with the maintenance, to reduce the differences in twist
caused by mechanical factors.
Spandex fiber, there are two varieties of a type that polyester-based polyurethane, and the other for
the polyether-based polyurethane. Spandex fibers in the molecular structure of human chains are
rigid and flexible chain segment, form a mosaic copolymer structure, making spandex fibers have a
strong flexibility and extensibility, maximum elongation of up to 700% of the original length, while the
elongation of 500% the flexibility of response rate of up to 95%.
Two-way stretch Spandex warp knitted fabric, only to wear a spandex yarn, combed through the flat
pad to make yarn, needles, after sliding due to a short extension lines are short, and by looking hair
mat yarn, helium-lun yarn combed yarn covered by the former. Not easy to damage. Other bars
have taken under the regular nylon fabric requirements yarn, polyester yarn or cotton yarn. Since
the formation of nitrogen-lun yarn coils, therefore, through the direction and weft have good
flexibility. In the ordinary Tricot machine knitting, the spandex yarn let-off to be completely positive,
and lead screw with a flexible alternative to rotary tension rod: playing with ways to ease the volume
cloth, so that warping, warp the course of spandex yarn Stretch a certain recovery of the cloth to
form a good roll.
Plain elastic fabric is actually woven through the velvet, the fabric has a good two-way flexibility and
plain cloth appearance, reasonable control of spandex stretch yarn warping ratio, and two guide bar
of the let-off amount of the content of spandex yarn can be controlled in about 15%, widely used in
small swimwear, skating clothing, women's gym and other sporting events, clothing.
Would not fall stretch velvet fabric is actually a single-needle-bed 2 comb fabric. In the comb and
combed for weaving cloth elastic manner, the former Salisbury multi-pin back-sliding away from the
needle to form a long extension cable. As the role of spandex stretch, the former combed yarn to
form an extension line of arch similar to the terry, finishing when the first conduct a mild nap, and
then shearing, the former hair extension line of yarn to form into a dense and difficult to erect
hair-like down , plush highly dependent on the length of extension lines.
Reasonable control of spandex yarn warping draw ratio and the guide bar of the let-off amount of
spandex yarn usage can be controlled within 7% of the total weight of less help to reduce production
costs. The product has elegant appearance and feel, a good two-way flexibility is a very good
clothing and home decoration warp knitted fabric tomorrow.
One-way stretch Spandex warp knitted fabric generally use thicker spandex yarn in Raschel knitting
machine integration, wearing a spandex yarn to make a special post-comb pad weft insertion yarn,
spandex yarn to make the main show in the fabric of the vertical, and is clip among other local
organizations. The more rough spandex yarn, spandex yarn showing the direction of the flexibility
the better.
In recent years, spandex and the type of very rich variety of materials, including various
specifications of plain, twill, satin, small jacquard spandex refined stretch wool fabric woolen fabric,
and a variety of yarn-dyed stretch shirt face Branch, stretch denim, in the a long stretch fabric,
various elastic dyeing cloth, stretch poplin, stretch khaki, stretch velvet, stretch knit fabric, as well as
supporting various types of clothing such as elastic rib and cuffs. In addition, the spandex warp
elastic corduroy for the development of non-woven fabric also has good prospects.

The apple was the first fruit mentioned in the bible, not always allowing the noble apple to prove the
life enhancing powers it does possess. The pectin in the reddest apples has among the most
antioxidants of any natural food. Science continues to show cases of high priced medications
contain potent versions of what we are eating naturally all the while. A healthy recipe for healthy
living does include the humble apple.
Apples help our bodies fight cancer; studies have shown that there are several components in juicy
fruit, such as apples, which help to prevent the growth of cancer cells. Healthy apples are most
potent when the fruit is eaten whole, including the skin, and by choosing the darker apples, such as
deep Red Delicious, Fuji, Jonathan, Rome Beauty and Red Spartan. Apples are a good source of
vitamin C and fiber. Italian researchers found people who ate more than one apple a day lowered
their risk for oral, esophageal, colon, breast, ovarian, prostate and other cancers by 9 to 42%.
Apples benefit our health by helping to fight cholesterol. Two key components, the pectin in the
reddest apples and poly-phenols, which have the most anti-oxidants of any natural food, can help to
lower cholesterol, and prevent the oxidation of LDL, which is the bad cholesterol. Bad cholesterol
results from the chemical process that fills the arteries with clogging plaque. Save the apple skin; it
has two to six times the antioxidants that the actual flesh of the apple has, science shows, and most
of us need all the help we can get when it comes to healthy eating.
Apples make us smarter. Apples boost the production of acetylcholine, which is a chemical that
transmits messages between nerve cells. In a recent study from the University of Massachusetts,
researchers suggest that apples may keep your brain 'smarter' as you age and the components help
boost our memory, potentially lessening the possibility of getting Alzheimer's disease.
Apples help us to breathe easier. United Kingdom researchers found that children of pregnant
women who ate apples during pregnancy, were less likely to wheeze or develop asthma by the age
of five. This healthy fruit may also protect the lungs of adults, help in the prevention of asthma, lung
cancer and other diseases.
Many people have eaten apples all their lives but ppeled for them in order to not take in all the
pesticides used in apple growing. Recently, many have changed their thinking and have taken to
organic, whenever possible, or washing the regular treated apples thoroughly, in order to eat the
healthy peel. Organic is wonderful, but not always available.
The next reason to eat healthy apples daily is, that apples are a difficult food to eat; they require
chewing a great deal, as they are dense and firm. This healthy food is packed with fiber,
approximately five grams per apple, and is low in calories, approximately 80 for a medium sized
apple. Apples contain a natural sugar which enters the bloodstream slowly, keeping our insulin
levels steady; a much better choice than a sugary snack, which will give us a fast high, then a low in
our sugar levels, creating hunger faster, as well as giving us little nutritional value.
Apples are truly a beneficial choice for healthy living. It is highly recommended you keep eating
apples, as they are one of nature's perfect foods, and after eating these gems, you will feel full
longer, keep your cholesterol lower, be smarter, breathe easier, help to boost your memory, and
keep your insulin at a decent level. What more could we ask from one healthy food?
RF Headphones is an acronym for radio frequency headphones which is a wireless system that
transmits radio waves all around your home. This basically means that you would be setting up a
mini radio station right in your home which gives the ability to emit radio waves and then converted
into pure music at the receivers end. The best thing is, only you can receive those radio wave
transmissions through your RF headphone. The wireless headphones act as the receiver of those
radio waves. It is really great to be able to move around the house without being confined to wires.
The only problem is, you will need to have batteries to charge these RF headphones. It would be a
great idea if you get a couple of rechargeable batteries. This way you can keep the other one in the
charger awhile you use the other. So when the battery dies out, you would have a new one to
replace it immediately.
These RF headphones come in different technologies. Some versions use light to transfer the
sound. These are IR headphones and IR actually means infra red. You would need to be in a
location where the light is visible for it to transmit those music successfully. If you are in the same
room as the transmitter, it works great. As soon as you move out, you will not be able to receive
those transmissions anymore. If you move around the house often, you will need to go for the radio
frequency headphones. It works wonders even when you are at a considerable distance away from
the transmitter. Some of these RF headphones are Bluetooth compatible. So if your computer or
laptop has a Bluetooth adaptor, you can listen to music if you get connected to the computer.
If you desire total freedom and mobility, then an RF headphone would work wonders. You can take
them out with you when you are in the lawn or sitting next to the pool. If you want some music when
you are exercising and you do not want the house to hear it, then you will need an RF headphone.
You are free to move about when the headphone you are using is wireless. It is always relaxing to
listen to music no matter what you may be doing currently. And if you encounter a task you do not
want to do, music help to make the job easier and more pleasurable.

You churned out a resume that rocks. They were impressed enough to invite you to a face-to-face
interview. They grilled you in the first round, invited you back for a second interview, and then a
third. You went through round after round but they didn't knock you out. You just kept coming back
for more. And just when you thought to yourself "When are they going to offer me that job already",
you get the call. They want to make you an offer.
You did it! Smooth sailing from here. Right? Not so fast. What happens when the job offer letter
doesn't meet all of your expectations? Don't despair. You don't have to accept the offer as is, and if
you go about properly, you need not worry that asking for more is going to jeopardize this career
opportunity you worked so hard to get. Here's how to negotiate a job offer without turning you future
employer off.
2. Evaluate all of the elements of the job offer letter and determine how each one measures up to
expectations. The best way to do this is in writing or on a spreadsheet. Create three columns on the
page. In the first column, write a vertical list of categories such as salary, bonus, vacation, benefits,
401k, etc. At the top of the second column, write "Job offer letter", and at the top of the third column,
write "Expectations". In the "Job offer letter" column, summarize the main points of the offer letter
next to each category. So for example, next to salary, indicate the salary offered in the offer letter.
Then in the "Expectations" column, write down the salary you want. Do that with each category so
that you have a concise view of how the job offer letter compares to your expectations.
3. Focus on the things you want most. I'm a proponent of win-win negotiation and I believe that to
succeed at negotiating a job offer letter, you need to be ready to make some compromises. Don't try
to have everything your way. Decide which elements of the job offer letter are most important to you
and put forth your counteroffer on those items in clear terms. But it's important to remember that
there are some things you may want that they may not be able to offer because of company
policies. It's always a good idea to keep several options in mind so that if they can't agree to
something you want, you can offer them an alternative that will make both parties happy. For
example, if you want three weeks vacation but their company policy is that all employees get two
weeks vacation, consider if you'd be willing to forego the extra week of vacation in exchange for
flexible working hours.
4. Of all the elements of the job offer letter, people tend to worry most about how to negotiate a
higher salary. But it doesn't have to be that difficult. If the salary offered doesn't meet your
expectations and you want to ask for more, be prepared to explain why you deserve it. There are
lots of websites that provide in depth salary information. If you do your research, you'll be in a
position to show why someone with your skills and experience should get paid more for the position.
But again, company policy may dictate what the employer can offer. If you can't get the salary you
want, be prepared to propose alternatives such as a higher bonus.
5. Always maintain your professionalism. You must be prepared for them to say no to things you
want. Don't let your emotions get the best of you and don't make any rash decisions. Take a day or
two to think about their final offer. You may come to the conclusion that the opportunity is worth
foregoing a few perks.
Keeping pace with the current times, Apple has come up with various different products. For
example, in the market you will find the Apple laptops, desktops, iPod, iPod Touch and iPod Nano.
All these products are phenomenal products from Apple. They are actually very highly rated in
comparison to those offered by the competitor. Apple has strived to maintain its competitive edge
over the other competitors. They are always giving us something more.
Apple has introduced new excellent features to its iPods. This has left the competitors challenged as
none of them has been able to match this features so far. The iPods new features have kept Apple
at the top of the game. As the saying would go, the more the better. So why not celebrate with this
new features. They are just perfect additions for the users.
Apple has modified its iPod and actually reduced the size. The size is very small and portable. This
Makes it very convenient to carry around. Though, the question one would ask is, has the reduction
of the size had a positive or negative impact? The answers to that rests on the customers' reactions,
but remember tastes and preferences differ.
Apple has got a very powerful desktop PC. They have also added additional components making it
perform much better. The Apple PC has been the preferred choice for many especially those
ambitious professionals. The MacBook is a very good and promising feature introduced for the
desktop PC and is very easy and enjoyable to work with.
Apple can proudly boost of its diverse range of quality products that are readily available in the
market. Therefore, if you are looking at getting yourself a new iPod, consider one from Apple.
Though it is always wise to gather product information and acquire all the knowledge you need
before you make a purchase. Look out for Apple; we don't know just what additions they will
introduce next.
After looking at the operating systems (OS) coming from Google (Android), Apple (iOS4) and other
Microsoft has come up with an intelligent OS in Windows Phone 7. Although, the OS name may not
sound good to you but it has been the problem with the Microsoft. However, it is making a lot of
buzz in the Mobile Phones market for its excellent and intelligent features and applications.
LG Windows Phone 7 is known as LG Optimus 7 device, it is more or less similar to other Window 7
smart phones from different mobile phone makers which mean it keeps the slate like looks with
three navigation buttons on the front. It is no different from other Window Phone 7 in the market; it is
mostly because Microsoft has standardized the WP7 hardware for everyone. But, LG Optimus
Window 7 phones offers a little more than what other phones have.
I think there is no need to tell that LG Window 7 phones run on the Window Phone 7 platform by
Microsoft and is supported by 1GHz Qualcomm snapdragon processor. The device comes with a
3.8 inches capacitive touch screen display which is responsive to the finger touch and easy on eyes
with its brightness and contras. The Window 7 phone from LG Mobile Phones offers a bright camera
proposition to the mobile phone users with their 5MP (mega pixel) snapper that also offers LED flash
to the users to capture pictures in the dim light. The overall quality of the camera is quite
appreciable. The camera also performs the video recording function of 720pfs of HD quality.
Code 58292 is the column 1 code whereas 58294 is the column 2 code. You won't get reimbursed
for a column 2 code performed on the same day as the associated column 1 code - unless the edits
permit you to use a modifier, says Marvel J. Hammer, RN, CPC, CCS-P, PCS, ACS-PM, CHCO,
consultant with MJH Consulting, Denver.
Explanation: Reversing the order corrects the fact that 58292 has a higher relative value unit (RVU).
Also, CMS does not consider the two codes mutually exclusive as the only difference between these
two vaginal hysterectomy codes is that one includes removal of the tubes and ovaries, while the
other does not.
IPPE: CMS bundles G0402 (Initial preventive physical examination; face-to-face visit, services
limited to new beneficiary during the first 12 months of Medicare enrollment) as mutually exclusive to
all problem E/M codes (99201-99215, Office or other outpatient visit …). In order to bypass this
edit, you'll have to use modifier 25 (Significant, separately identifiable evaluation and management
service by the same physician on the same day of the procedure or other service) on the problem
E/M code.
Hysterectomy: The first set of ME edits have an effect on hysterectomy procedures. The codes
58263 (Vaginal hysterectomy, for uterus 250 g or less; with removal of tube[s], and/or ovary[s], with
repair of enterocele) and 58270 (Vaginal hysterectomy, for uterus 250 g or less; with repair of
enterocele) are now part of 58280 (Vaginal hysterectomy, with total or partial vaginectomy; with
repair of enterocele). You cannot report more than one vaginal hysterectomy on one patient. Hence,
these three codes are mutually exclusive procedures.
Portable Mp4 Digital Players attract more consumers all the time with features that have some
definite advantages over smart phones. While many people wouldn't be caught without their smart
phones, other people are realizing how smart it is to go with portable players. From the latest MP4
and Digital Mp3 Player to an Internet tablet, people are rethinking their portable investments, which
can not only save a bundle of money, but also provide a far more satisfying multimedia experience.
It Costs Nothing to Run a Portable Media Player Portable MP3 digital players with Windows Media
Players cost nothing to run, but smart phones can get expensive. Smart phones lock users in to
long-term service contracts with monthly billings that can add up quickly, even for the most basic
data service plans, which can then restrict users from certain Internet access and communications.
Many people are learning that for one flat upfront cost, they can have free unlimited access to the
technology and possibilities of a media player. Portable players make it possible with Wifi
technology to access the internet and email-and even to access internet phone services with the
use of add-ons. The best portable media players not only provide access to the internet, but to
countless applications and ample storage for every kind of movie, video and entertainment across

April wasn't a great month for Apple. The tech giant endured the lost iPhone 4G debacle, and CEO
Steve Jobs' strongly worded post against Adobe on Apple's official blog has now caught the
attention of the federal government. The New York Post reports that the Department of Justice and
Federal Trade Commission are negotiating over which agency will begin an antitrust inquiry into
Apple. Apple is accused of hindering competition by excluding Flash support, limiting app
development to Apple-only gadgets. Though an investigation is unlikely, a change in Apple's stance
on Flash could encourage positive changes in the future.
The antitrust inquiry would focus on one key part of Apple's developer agreement which restricts
iPhone and iPad app development in third-party technologies such as Flash. Without the option for
Flash, developers are required to use Apple's approved programming tools. The Post reports that by
limiting development options, Apple is essentially blocking its competition. Antitrust suits are
notoriously difficult to prove, as it must be found that the company in question is not only a
monopoly, but that it also abused its power as a monopoly. Apple is clearly not a monopoly
– its market share in the U.S. smartphone market was only 25 percent at the end of the last
quarter. Fortune's Philip Elmer-DeWitt commented on this fact, writing:
"Apple's doesn't enjoy that kind of market share. Its slice of the U.S. smartphone market is smaller
than Research in Motion's, and Google's Android share is rapidly catching up. And while there are
companies that can legitimately claim they have been harmed by the success of the iPhone вЂ―
Palm comes first to mind вЂ― Palm can hardly blame Section 3.3.1 of the SDK for its troubles."
In Steve Jobs' blog on the subject, he points out that Apple chooses not to include Flash support on
its products because it makes the products weaker, not stronger. Though the post is full of technical
details, it's clear Apple's decisions are made with customers and developers in mind – not
for the purpose of killing competition, as the Post reports. If anything, Apple encourages healthy
competition and creativity by requiring development outside of the Flash environment. Apple may
exclude Flash, but it supports many other popular programming formats such as HTML5, CSS and
JavaScript. An excerpt from Jobs' post says, "Our motivation is simple – we want to provide
the most advanced and innovative platform to our developers, and we want them to stand directly
on the shoulders of this platform and create the best apps the world has ever seen."
Every once in a while, Microsoft releases Service PacksÐ’Â that are primarily a bunch of updates to
the Windows operating system that have been packaged up into one download. These Service
Packs serve as new versionÐ’Â of the operating system so much so that some applications and
programs require that your PC be updated to the latest Service Pack before installation. However,
until Service Packs are released, the updates trickle in fromÐ’Â MicrosoftÐ’Â as individual
installations. Although generally tested to be stable, these updates occasionally behave in ways the
company did not intend. Luckily, Microsoft built into Windows 7 an easy to use interfaceÐ’Â for
uninstalling individual updates.Ð’Â Computer Service Hong Kong tells us step by step process to
uninstall Windows 7 Updates.
Begin by logging into Windows 7 with an account that has administrative privileges. Then, click
onÐ’Â Start. Under theÐ’Â Programs and Featureslink, click on the link titledÐ’Â View Installed
Updates. You should now be looking at theÐ’Â Uninstall an Update window. You should note a few
things here. First, note that each update is automatically categorized by program. Second, note that
the next column indicates to which program the update belongs.Ð’Â Third, the next column indicates
the version. Note that few updates use this column so don't be alarmed if almost all of the updates
have this column blank. Fourth, the next column indicates the publisher of the update. Microsoft
often makes use of this column but many other publishers do not. Again, don't be surprised to see
this column mostly blank. Fifth, the last column indicates when the update was installed. This
column is particularly important because it can help you diagnose a malfunctioning computer. If you
install an update and your computer starts to act strangely, you can sort the updates found in this
windowsÐ’Â by date and uninstall the most recent updates to try to fix your PC. You can uninstall
any update in this list simply by clicking on it. How the update uninstalls depends on what kind of
update it is. For example, Microsoft updates prompt you to ensure you really want to uninstall it.
Other updates may simply uninstall without asking you to verify the un-installation. For this reason,
be careful what you do in this window or you may inadvertently uninstall an important update.
However, don't worry because you can always download it again by running Windows Update.
Windows 7 makes it easy to view and uninstall individual updates. HoweverÐ’Â Computer Upgrade
Hong Kong recommends unless you have a good reason for doing so, don't start uninstalling
updates to fix a problem with Windows. You may make matters worse and open up your computer
to malwareÐ’Â and other attacks from which the update was protecting your PC.
Microsoft was once the dominant handheld devices, but in the Apple iPhone launched in 2007 after

software, to facilitate the archiving and computer synchronization. "Picture" can help you integrate a
snapshot, and a number of platforms such as Facebook and photos.
The design of these hubs are easy to use, but it is difficult to fully support. For example, in the
"crowd" does not list using Facebook, but Twitter does not support. In the "picture", the use of
Facebook and Windows Lives are great, but run into Flickr, becomes difficult. Of course, laptop

We like the benefit of getting high-quality photographs as well as video clip on the go by having an

hasn't supplied ways to easily sync this particular press back to the personal computers, or possibly
a method to back up precious pictures in the cloud which means you don't need to import all of them
so frequently. Due to the $1.99 general CameraSync iphone app through Organic Software program
Ltd., this is now as simple as simply starting the application as well as letting it to perform the factor.
Following beginning CameraSync in your iOS system, you'll be greeted having a listing of
cloud-based providers will retailer your photos as well as video clip -- included in this tend to be
popular options for example Dropbox,, Amazon S3, MobileMe iDisk, Reddit or even the
File transfer protocol host of your choosing. The actual builders associated with CameraSync
suggest Dropbox, which is the easiest method in order to add your own press as well as like magic
sync it to each pc or perhaps gadget which you have the customer computer software set up.
Additionally, you'll have the ability to effortlessly look at these types of documents from your
Dropbox application upon iOS or perhaps Android os devices.
In order to hyperlink CameraSync back, basically touch about the Dropbox image and also get into
your own qualifications in the form of an e-mail deal with as well as pass word. Should you don't
curently have the Dropbox accounts, faucet "Create a good account" to start out 1 -- your own very
first 2GB associated with storage space is totally totally free, so there's pointless to not try it out. Any
time completed, faucet the hyperlink option as well as go to Synchronize Choices.
Around the next display, you'll hold the choice of syncing almost all existing pictures on your own

CameraSync produce a file on Dropbox for your press, or even selecting one of the own. Any time
you've produced your alternatives, faucet Completed to check out the particular Options display
Following establishing your own Dropbox account, you'll end up in the actual Configurations lite.
From this level you can include additional balances in order to upload articles in order to, as well as
designate what sort of content to connect, and the way. CameraSync leaves absolutely no natural
stone unturned and provides an individual optimum overall flexibility to determine the way you want
to deal with the press.
If you tap with an present accounts, you'll discover 3 choices: Modify Consideration, Content label
Accounts as well as Erase Accounts. The very first enables you to make positive changes to
Dropbox connect to an additional accounts, as the next allows you to change the account name :
ideal for offering a unique identify to a FTP account, for example. Finally, you will find the substitute
for get rid of your bank account entirely from CameraSync.

which can be toggled upon or even off: Connect Photos, Connect Video tutorials as well as Connect
Camera Imports. The first 2 provide you with the substitute for upload just one kind of press if you
undertake to do so -- you are able to accelerate your own syncing by turning away movies, for
instance. The 3rd choice lets you disregard press imported for your Digital camera Move, which
include files preserved off their apps or imported from the camera using the ipad tablet Camera
Relationship Package.
The following area, "Sync Settings", lets you manage how big your own submitted pictures along
with four choices: Complete quality (that offers the most top quality through posting your own
authentic pictures), Big (optimum size 1600 by 1600), Method (optimum size 1200 times 1200) or
perhaps Small (optimum size 400 times 400). In the event that you're worried about possessing
excellent backup copies of the iOS device media, you'll desire to select Full here.
There are also three selections for choosing how your own sync is shown: "Show Percentage" gives
you a visual signal as to what lengths together your own sync is actually, whilst "Show Icon Label"
places the badge on the app's symbol, showing the number of documents are still to visit; "Disable
Display screen Sleep" enables you to maintain the display conscious during upload so you can
observe it's development. Lastly, there's a choice to be able to Totally reset Published Storage, that
will pressure a brand new connect of the info just in case one thing goes completely wrong.
As soon as you depart the actual Configurations pane through tapping Done, you'll see the principal
CameraSync display populate together with your Digital camera Move press plus a synchronize

open up package at the bottom to point success. To prevent an add beginning, faucet the little
whitened octagon, that will after that change to a good inverse arrow. Touch the icon to create the

From now on, each and every time a person available the particular iphone app, CameraSync can
look for brand new press in your iOS device and add what ever this locates to be able to Dropbox
(along with other services a person include). In the event you remove personal files from your
Dropbox file, the actual iphone app will disregard the removed document and never try to add this
once more.
CameraSync can also be a great or free proposal - as you can easily manage which type of articles
you need to publish, a person can't choose which photos or even movies acquire submitted. If it's
brand new, this will get send to the fog up; if it's recently been synced prior to, it's disregarded. This
makes the app incredibly easy to make use of, because each and every time a person open up
CameraSync, it will what it's programmed to do without having overthinking the procedure.
There are some restrictions, nevertheless. Currently, it is possible to just use a single account for
each service : which means you can't include several Dropbox accounts, or even make use of more
than one MobileMe iDisk at any given time. However, should you create several several types of
storage, CameraSync will add your press to each simultaneously, which is quite useful.
Furthermore, the application is just made to sync a proven way -- in the app for your impair
safe-keeping, not really the other way around.
Finally, CameraSync uses its own naming structure on your photos and videos, as the year, month,
time and date when it was taken. Which means if you use iPhoto in order to straight transfer photos
out of your gadget, you may get replicates if you opt to import CameraSync's exported data files
also. Fortunately, the actual iphone app will contain all the graphic and Gps navigation data, which
is why the application is needed to require your own authorization just before making use of your
place info whenever this very first starts.
When you've utilized CameraSync in order to publish media from the iOS gadget, you'll without
doubt end up being asking yourself in the event that there's some way to automatically importance
individuals pictures as well as movies straight into iPhoto with out handbook treatment. The fact is,
the actual designers perhaps you have engrossed in a good AppleScript which makes brief perform
of the job, so long as you're using Dropbox or even iDisk regarding uploading.
Following doing your preliminary sync along with CameraSync, down load a little piece of software in
the developer's web site. Open up a Locater eye-port and browse to the /Library/Scripts/Folder
Motion Scripts/ file of the Macintosh HD (not your own person directory). Drag as well as fall the
actual "add - importance in to iPhoto.scpt" record to the place.

Ok, Mets fans -you did make the World Series in 2000, but you lost to the Yankees. Does losing in a
World Series really count for anything? Beyond that, the Mets have wandered woefully through
many losing seasons and have suffered because of some inept management and decisions at the
general manager level.
The Yanks have a rising star in Robinson Cano, while the Mets can counter with 3B David Wright.
Carlos Delgado is the Mets big bopper, while Alex Rodriquez holds that title in the Bronx. Pedro has
the scandalous background as does Jason Giambi, and both bullpens feature a large amount of
money invested in closers.
At one point in the winter, the Mets were a 12-1 pick to win the World Series, and now, that has
been lowered to 7-1. The gap is closing between the Yankees and Mets, but in the end, it probably
will not be enough. The Mets were the hot team last year, but faltered at season's end. The Mets
might still be a year or two away in the National League, having to overcome the powerful Cardinals
and the flying Phillies.
Either way, the Yankees and owner George Steinbrenner know how important this series and the
final set of games back in the Bronx are. It is all about image, and until the Mets can prove year after
year that they are contenders and can win down the stretch, New York will always remain a
Yankees town.

Google Page is free and easy to use. Google Page offers 41 page skins (templates) and a simple
editor to create pages. Simply add text, upload pictures, video, music and files, click
“publish” and your page exists on the world wide web. Google offers 100 Mb of space

non-official help pages and forumsÐ’Â GPC) which is still in testing phase (Beta).
Example: You might decide that your home page layout should have a left column for navigation, a
center column for a short explanation and a right column for pictures all on a grey skin background.
Your next page might have much more text and you can decide for the left column navigation but to
combine the center and right column into one all on a white background. By shifting between the
Change Looks and Layout options you can make each page different from the other. You also have
the option of using headers and footers when and where you want.

publish the page and view it online in your browser. You can either view the page source or save the
file as an html document on your hard-disk. Using a text editor you can then add the AdSense script
in the left column and close the file. Go back to your Google Page editor and upload the xx.htm file
from your hard disk. Link to it from existing Google Page documents and you have a custom page.
A small disadvantage at the moment is that you cannot use the GooglePage editor to make changes
to the page since the editor will automatically strip out the script. This will change.

The Windows Mobile 7-powered HD7 phone, with a code name of 6HTHD7XM, is shipped with a
4.3-inch TFT LCD capacitive touchscreen running at 800Г—480 pixels resolution. It is driven by a
fast and powerful 1GHz Qualcomm QSD8250 Snapdragon mobile processor beating at its core. The
device will have HTC's own customised version of Sense User Interface for WP7 phones.
The HD7 has separate music and movie players that can render MP4, WMV, H.264 and H.263
video formats as well as MP3, WMV, WAV and eAAC+ audio formats. Superb-sounding audio is
provided by an enhanced Texas Instrument chip. There is a built-in microphone plus a 3.5 mm audio
jack that provides headphone connectivity as well as acts as an FM antenna support.
The HTC HD7 is slightly bigger which is due mostly to its wide 4.3-inch touchscreen. It has
measurements of 122 x 68 x 11.2 mm, thinner than most smartphones in this category. The design
is stylish and sleek with a build quality that appears to be first-rate. There is the standard WP7 Back,
Start and Search buttons beneath the display as well as a kick stand at the back of the device.
The HD7 smartphone, like the latest batch of mobile handsets, includes a wide range of connectivity
features including EDGE, GPRS, a GPS transceiver with A-GPS support and 3G HSDPA. Additional
connectivity options are provided by Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g, Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP and microUSB 2.0.
The HD7 phone comes with a new version of Internet Explorer Mobile, which is a definite
improvement over the previous ones.
The spinal column is not completely solid and there are several discs which make the spinal column
what it is. Apart from the bony structure of the spinal column there are also several cushions and
spaces along which the shocks are absorbed. There is a network of nerves and which allows for the
shocks to be absorbed.
These spaces in the spinal column are extremely critical when it comes to the movement of the
spine. If these spaces are blocked, the nervous impulses cannot move forward and the blood flow is
impeded. For the right kind of blood flow to continue throughout the spine, these spinal spaces and
cushions should ideally be healthy.
Spinal stenosis is a condition where these spaces and cushions are not healthy. When these
spaces narrow down due to inflammation or any other condition that affects the spinal column, the
person experiences pain in the back and rigidity due to the restricted blood flow. Spinal stenosis is
an extremely uncomfortable condition and needs immediate relief.
Spinal Stenosis Treatment is required by those suffering from this condition. Usually, this condition
occurs due to the degeneration caused by ageing. Osteoarthritis is another condition which causes
spinal stenosis. Sometimes, an accident may cause inflammation in the spinal column, leading to
the onset of spinal stenosis. In such a condition, spinal stenosis treatment requires the treatment of
the injury and the inflammation.
The symptoms and spinal stenosis treatment is based completely on the causes of the condition. If
the condition is caused due to a tumor in the backbone, a surgery may be required to treat it. The
symptoms of stenosis may also be important in considering the treatment of this condition. The back
pain may start slowly when the inflammation is less and as the inflammation grows, the pain in the
backbone also intensifies.
There are plenty of methods for spinal stenosis treatment. However, there are chiropractors in San
Fernando Valley who have extensive experience in dealing with the treatment. Since the pain may
be relieved by flexing and stretching, the chiropractor may simply realign your spinal joints to make
the movement of blood more comfortable. this also improves the amount of spaces in the spinal
column, allowing you to continue with your daily life.
As you schedule appointments with your chiropractor, you will realize that your pain continues to
lessen day after day. The back and the outer limbs are the first of your body parts that begin to lose
their sensations of pain. As the comfort increases, the spine itself gets relieved of the pressure of
the blocked blood flow. As the decompression therapy continues, you will feel rejuvenated and find
new vigour in the movements of your spine, much of which may have been lost due to the
inflammation and the pain.

A barometer is a device for measuring atmospheric pressure.The average atmospheric pressure at
sea level is 1 atmosphere, which is the pressure that will support a column of mercury 760mm
(29.92 inches) high, i.e., about 1Kg/cm2 (14.71 1b./in2 ). This would correspond to the pressure
exerted by a column of air about 5 miles (8 Km) high if its density were constant and equal to that at
sea level.This explains why the barometric pressure on the top of a mountain is, say, 10,000 ft.
(3000m) high, the column of air pressing down at the top is only about 3 miles (assuming constant
Actually the atmospheric pressure at any particular altitude is never constant, but varies by relatively
small amounts about the average.These variations provide data for weather forecasts. When a
rubber suction pad is pressed against a smooth wall, it will remain adhering to the wall. By pressing
the pad down flat against the wall surface the air is expelled from the cavity under the pad and a
vacuum is formed there.
The air pressure which originally acted in that cavity now no longer thrusts against the inside of the
pad. When the latter is released, it will remain in the compressed position because the air pressure
acts on the outside only and thus presses the edge of the pad down so firmly that no air will
penetrate into the cavity, which therefore remains void of air.
The external air pressure thus keeps the suction pad firmly pressed against the wall. Difference of
air pressure is also utilised when we drink a liquid through a straw. Air is sucked out of the straw ,
and the barometric air pressure, which acts upon the surface of the liquid in the glass, will force the
liquid up through the straw.
If a long glass tube, which is sealed at one end and open at the other, is filled with mercury and is
then stood upright, with the open end downwards, in a dish containing mercury, then so much
mercury will flow out of the tube until a column of mercury not more than 760 mm in height above
the mercury surface in the dish remains. The air pressure which acts upon the surface of the
mercury in the dish is therefore able to hold up a 760 mm high mercury column.
One of the main factors that contribute to back pain that we experience on a regular basis is
carrying around too much weight.Ð’Â I'm not talking about carrying boxes are lifting heavy items,
I'm talking about the weight that we carry around at all times.Ð’Â If you are just 20 pounds
overweight, you may be putting a strain on your spinal column and perhaps even throwing your hips
out of alignment to the point where you are going to experience pain on a persistent basis.Ð’Â In
order for you to overcome this problem, you need to lose the weight and there is no way getting
around that.
Think of it this way, have you ever tried to lift a 20 pound box?Ð’Â It may not be all that difficult to lift
the box but try carrying it around all day, every day.Ð’Â It won't take very long for you to realize that
20 pounds is actually quite heavy and you will be wanting to put it down rather quickly.Ð’Â The
same is also true if you are carrying around fat on your body that does not belong there.Ð’Â It is
going to take a toll and many of us carry around a lot more than 20 pounds of extra weight.Ð’Â If
this is the case with you, you need to make a change to feel a difference.
The easiest way for you to lose weight is to modify your eating habits and to get a little bit of
exercise.Ð’Â It is not necessary for you to go to extremes in order for you to do this.Ð’Â Simply
work out the larger muscles of your body, your legs and you will begin to burn calories as a result of
the additional muscle mass.Ð’Â You should also work on strengthening your core muscles as this
will also help you to overcome back pain that you may be experiencing.
As far as your diet is concerned, it is really just a matter of simple math.Ð’Â Try to figure out how
much you are burning in the way of calories on a daily basis.Ð’Â Reduce your eating so that you
are anywhere from 500 to 1000 calories underneath that number every day.Ð’Â By doing so, you
will put yourself in the calorie deficit and you will lose anywhere from one to 2 pounds every week

Wireless means you most likely have to stay in the line of sight of the base unit. The technology
behind this is similar to that of your remote control for the television. The standard range is about 30
feet. Some units are available with more mobility, but signal strength can be lost. This makes most
of these units more compatible with home or office use than anywhere else.

Those apps, which appear in most countries' versions of the App Store, do not currently appear in
the Chinese version. Another app related to Rebiya Kadeer, who like the Dalai Lama is an exiled
minority leader reviled by China's authorities, is unavailable in the China App Store as well. The
apparent censorship comes after carrier China Unicom launched iPhone sales two months ago,
making regulatory approval of the phone's contents in the country necessary for the first time.
At least five iPhone apps related to the Dalai Lama are unavailable in the China store. Some of
those apps -- named Dalai Quotes, Dalai Lama Quotes and Dalai Lama Prayerwheel -- display
inspirational quotes from the Tibetan spiritual leader. Another, Paging Dalai Lama, tells users where
he is currently teaching. A fifth app, Nobel Laureates, contains information about Nobel Prize
winners including the Dalai Lama.
Test searches done on four out of five iPhones displayed at the Apple Store in Beijing this month
returned no results for the term "Dalai." The apps also did not appear for searches done with a
computer on iTunes after switching the country selection in the program to China. One of the
iPhones at the Apple Store did display the Dalai Lama apps, though it was unclear why.
Chinese officials condemn the Dalai Lama as a dangerous "splittist" seeking to separate Tibet from
China, and have called him a "devil with a human face." The Dalai Lama fled Tibet in 1959 after
Chinese troops crushed an uprising in the capital city of Lhasa, solidifying Chinese control there.
The religious figure remains widely revered by Tibetans.
Apple lets developers choose in which countries' versions of the App Store to sell their products, but
it is unlikely that the Kadeer and Dalai Lama apps are unavailable in China by the choice of their
makers. The app about Kadeer was submitted to the App Stores in all countries, James Boldiston,
the app's developer, said in an e-mail. Other developers said they could not recall if they had
excluded China, but most had other apps for sale in the China store, showing that in other cases
they had included the country.
"Given that Apple has cooperated with China before (by not distributing games), it's of course very
likely that it's Apple, not the developers, that are preventing certain apps from appearing," said one
China-based app developer, who asked not to be named, in an e-mail. Games were not sold in the
China App Store before recent months.
Apple joins other U.S. technology giants including Yahoo and Google that have come under fire for
complying with Chinese government demands on sensitive political issues. Human rights advocates
criticized Yahoo when Shi Tao, a Chinese journalist, landed a 10-year prison sentence in 2005
partly because of e-mail evidence gained from his private Yahoo account. Yahoo said it was
obeying Chinese law by handing the evidence to authorities.
The Chinese iPhone also appears to be subject to the country's set of Internet controls known by
critics as the "Great Firewall." Searching the App Store for "Falun Gong," the name of a spiritual sect
banned in China as a cult, caused iPhones in the Beijing Apple Store to display a results loading
screen indefinitely, though no Falun Gong apps appear to be offered in any countries. In contrast,
searches for other terms quickly returned a results page.
There are a range of Skype headset which are available in the range of $15 to $80. If you read the
reviews and check out the comparison chart, it will help you decide which Skype headset is the best
for you. The most common amongst all headsets are the Plantronics range of headsets as they are
the ones which are recommended by Skype.
Before discussing the headsets, let us have a look at what Skype is. Skype helps people to make
calls through the internet. It allows all Skype users to call other Skype users. All you need to do is to
download the Skype software from their website which is free of charge. As the download is free, the
user just pays for their internet connection and can then make international calls for free.
The basic problem of Skype is that one user can only call other Skype users. Skype out is a service
which allows users to call normal telephones. For this service, the charges are on per-minute basis.
There is a switch (like the ones in Global phones) which is used in order to terminate calls. For more
information about this, you can visit the Skype website.

to know what you are listening to, you may want to consider using headphones. Nowadays, there
are many types of headphones available in the market to choose from and one of them is
“Cordless Headphones”.
Some wireless headsets use infrared rays for receiving signals, like a remote control. These have a
limited range of receiving of a maximum of 30 feet. Cordless headphones, on the other hand, use
radio waves. The headset should be adjusted in frequency with the base station so as not to
interfere with other devices. These headsets have a greater frequency of up to 2.4 GHz and can
reach up to 300 feet.
While there are many places from where you can buy your cordless headphones, there is need for
you to buy from a trusted dealer so that you can be assured of quality. When buying cordless
