Self Motivation

Self Motivation

Self motivation is the ability to satisfy a desire, expectation, or goal without being influenced to do so by another person. Self motivation is the key to a paradigm shift or behaviour changes amongst individuals. Many motivation courses or peak performance training mainly address this aspect but the cumulative effect is temporary and the key factor always is the presence of a constant reminder.

Self motivation is a difficult concept to grasp, though comparable to the key concepts and idealisms of many central religions and other such belief systems. Examples would be faith in Christianity, where through God all things are possible. Taoism also expresses a similar concept through the realm of meditation and focus, where one draws energy from the universe and the world. Bushido also relies on a similar concept, focusing the warrior mind through intense meditations and practices, all of which are meant to bend the mind in such a way as to increase the warriors reaction time and skill. Each of these ideals teaches the person on how to become independent in order to better realize their tasks though the through God concept is dependent on God, it does require the individual to focus their own beliefs and energy.

As mentioned in these ways of life, self motivation is the act of calling an eternal energy. By learning how to focus ones mind on his tasks, one can achieve much more with less strain than if one were unfocused, or distracted. A familiar term, mind over matter, comes into play here; if the mind is in control of itself, the body will have better control over its own realm.

This definition is part of a series that covers the topic of Motivation. The Official Guide to Motivation is Keith A. Shaw. Keith A. Qigong, also known as Chi Kung, has been used to improve health for thousands of years.

How would you feel if youve entered a contest, but there are no prizes for the winners? Its not very encouraging, isnt it?

The same principles apply to selfmotivation. Reward yourself after accomplishing a goal. Set a particular incentive for every objective.

Lets say if youve achieved a particular task, youll treat yourself to your favorite restaurant. When youve finished a bigger task, youll go on a vacation.

Radiant Historia

Radiant Historia

Played this for a few hours so far, and it has potential to be a great game.

For those that dont know, the main draw of this game is the ability to change history as you see fit. The catch is, you can only change the history of your experiences; so you cant go to places youve never been or go to a time before you were born.

The battle system is more indepth then I thought it would be. Enemies are placed on a 3x3 grid, the closer the enemy is to the front, the more damage they do when they attack. Your party has attack skills that send them from the front to the back, move them side to side, and even forward a square. The point of all this is to gather as many enemies on the same square at the same time, since attacking that one square will hit every enemy on that square.

Turn order is also a bit different. Whenever allies or enemies can act one after the other in the turn order, they will attack simultaneously. So you want to have all your characters all go one after the other; to take out the enemy quickly.

The characters so far all seem realistic. And the music, while being mostly subtle so far, is nice to listen to.

And to pick out a negative to even things out, Stockes MC footsteps are really loud on some surfaces.

Currently, I decided to remain a special agent at the first major history node.

So, I havent read any reviews, but I think I know what they are talking about now. I cant do my initial stay with the branch to the end plan, because the game wont let you.

I think I may have a personal problem on how the game uses time.

So. you have an origin point, and you can do A or B. Both A and B will branch off and become their own histories. From my own understanding of time, A and B should be completely unattached to one another. Essentially, two different universes. in A you walked left and events unfolded in B you walked right and events unfolded

But not so here. Using the game example, your informant that youre waiting for never arrives in A. Youre told that something happened to him in the B branch, so you go into that branch, save the informant, and he proceeds with his mission to rendezvous at a certain spot. and now you can continue your mission on the A branch to meet with the informant, since he was saved on the B branch.

So, does that make sense? Should it make sense? I realize I should just accept how the game is using time and enjoy it. and I am. It was just bugging me, and I dont even know if Im in the right or not.

Negative Effects Of Television On Kids

Negative Effects Of Television On Kids

Nutrition and ObesityTelevision often promotes unhealthy eating habits and excessive television viewing has been linked to obesity. Children view an average of 15 food commercials every day and 98 percent of these commercials are for food of low nutritional value, cites a National Institutes of Healthfunded study from 2009 in the Journal of Health Communications. The commercials indicate that eating these foods makes you happy and cool. Additionally, kids see unhealthy eating habits portrayed in their favorite TV shows. The hours spent in front of the television are generally hours of inactivity and snacking.

Cigarettes, Alcohol and DrugsChildren see smoking, drinking and doing drugs glorified on television. Although cigarette ads are banned on television, kids still see smoking in TV shows and the number of alcohol commercials has increased by 30 percent from 2001 to 2006, according to a Center on Alcohol Marketing and Youth study. Additionally, a longitudinal study cited by the AAP found a positive correlation between television and music video viewing and alcohol consumption among teens.

SexTelevision is one of the leading sources of information about sex for kids, says Dr. The longitudinal study, presented to the Pediatric Academic Societies in 2009, found that the younger children are exposed to content intended for adults in television and movies, the earlier they become sexually active during adolescence. TV shows often make risky sexual behaviors seem cool and exciting, failing to address their reallife consequences.

Your little girl is about to turn 16. Sixteen!! Wasnt it only yesterday that. Hey, snap out of it and grab a pen and paper. Its time to start planning a birthday party extravaganzaand if you dislike conflict, we recommend involving your teen in the planning process from the get go.

From favors to invitations and food, this article will help you throw the perfect bash for your daughter. Use these ideas to plan your daughters special day. Heres how to throw a sweet 16 party.

Turning sixteen is one of those milestone birthdays. Its also a busy time in a teens life. Theres school, maybe a parttime job, SAT preparation, college applications, or all of the above. The point is: Dont leave the planning to the last minute.

Is she cool with displaying photos and other personal memorabilia at the party? If so, does she want to curate the shrineor, at least, get a final sign off?

When it comes to ideas, well, the options are just about endless and really depend on your teen, your budget and the limits of your imaginationand tolerance. Lets talk about how to plan a sweet sixteen birthday party!

Step one is to ask your daughter what shes most passionate aboutmusic, sports, clothes, dessertand then building your party around it. If you or she is feeling at a creative loss, just type sweet 16 party themes into Google and let the good times roll. The Internet has tons of good ideas for how to plan the party. People are hosting dances, luaus, Las Vegasstyle casino nights, old fashioned sleepovers for those parents brave enough, and things called Mardi Gras Madness, Americas Next Top Model, Hollywood Sweet 16 and Car Crazy where the invitations mimic the teens drivers license, decorations feature flashing traffic lights and custom street signs West Jennifer Way and everybody heads home with favors in the form of a dashboard hula dancerin a pink grass skirt, of course. But we digress.

Your party can include princess invitations, tiaras and fluffy dresses at a hotel banquet hall, or baseball caps and burgers at the local bowling alley. As long as the revelries dovetail with your daughters dream sweet sixteen party and include her favorite people, its bound to be a success. One teens dream party was having a limo pick her and her closest friends up from school on Friday and drive them to a dance party where, after dancing, eating and playing deejayled games with other guests, the limo would whisk them away to a hotel suite for a weekend of swimming, shopping and staying up all night. Count us in for that one!

Sixteenyearold girls like to invite everyone they know. They want to be able to say, My sweet sixteen party was awesome! And they want everyone to witness just how awesome it really was. However, you may find a huge, elaborate party intimidating, impractical or expensive. Giant parties can be a blast. For efficiency sake, you might want to ask your daughter if shes interested in planning a party with one or more of her close friends who are also turning 16. The one downside to a big party is that it often doesnt allow for quality time with any of the guests. However, the birthday girl may be thinking about all of the gifts shell get at a big party. This is an important passage from childhood to adulthood. The celebration should be totally fun, but it should also be, you know, meaningful.

If you want a more personal experience for your teen, you can use these tips to plan a sweet 16 birthday party thats smaller. You might encourage her to think a little smaller and more selectively about the guest list. For example, suggest that she invite family, close friends from school or work, and maybe a few favorite parents of friends. Having a small party will allow you to save on decorations and spend more on a fun outing or gift. Think of fun places that are more relaxed and intimate. A weekend away or a spa day with five best girlfriends might be more fun and memorable than a wild dance party for the junior class. Plus, think about all the favors youll need for a party that large!

When planning a sweet 16 party, there are many choices when it comes to the venue, including your own home. Although, People dont usually want 16yearolds partying in their house, so they have them out at a place where the damage deposit isnt too high, says veteran Seattle party planner Wendi Hroncich. Hotels, restaurants, country clubs, community centers, boats, amusement parks, swimming pools and bowling alleys are all popular choices. The time of year may also influence your decision. Summer birthdays cry out for pool, beach or backyard parties. Winter is perfect for ski trips. If youre having a party in October, think about throwing one that requires everyone to wear costumes! A hotel, restaurant or country club will generally handle all of your food needs, providing eats and drinks along with tables and chairs, linens, glassware, etc. With other venues, youll probably have to hire a fullservice caterer or bring your own food and party supplies, and youll probably be responsible for the set up and clean up. Think about corralling some of that teen energy for a party committee that can help you with details like song lists, decorations and favors. Just be sure that the committee knows how to work on a budget!

Some essential party supplies are stationary to be used for invitations and thank you notes. Make sure you send them out on time. Plan to get your invitations out at least three weeks before the event, and sooner for any outoftown guests. This is your first chance to advertise the fun, creative spirit of your teen, and signal the kind of party you intend to throw surprise, dress up or down, etc.. Its also good to ask invitees to RSVP so you can get a headcount for food and beverage planning. If the teen guests dont respond on time, have your daughter text them asking if they are coming to her birthday party.

You may decide to have your invitations done professionally, or to make your own. There are lots of party sites out there happy to help if you go the DIY route such as Snapfish, Party 4 Sweet 16, and more, but all you really need is a computer and a printer, preferably color. One mom who was hosting a sweet sixteen party on the beach scrawled the details on beach balls, deflated them and mailed one to each guest in a manila envelope, along with instructions to bring the ball, a beach towel and a bathing suit along. The envelopes are just another creative canvas. You can add custom seals with a My Sweet 16 Birthday imprint or your teens name or initials. You can stuff them with plain confetti, or Photofettiyup, tiny photographic shards of your teens life. Postal Service with the birthday girls mug shot on them. And while youre making or ordering invitations, dont forget the thank you notes. They should be sent out in the month following the party.

Teenagers are usually easy to please when it comes to food. However, when planning this, remember that food is one of the most important aspects. Having a buffet is always a good, flexible serving strategy and your menu can feature any combo of the standard teenage farepizza, pasta, burgers, hot dogs, ribs, tacos, saladsor something a little more exoticChinese or sushi, anyone?

Get ideas for food based on your daughters culinary leanings and the party theme. Just remember that teenagers tend to eat, like, a lot, often twice as much as adults, especially if teenage boys are coming. Note to self: Part of knowing how to throw this type of a party means recognizing that you should buy in bulk when it comes to food. As for drinks, have a talk with your teen up front about your presumably no alcohol policy.

The dessert could be any of the following: A special birthday cake is traditional, and you have your choice of tiered, carved say, a guitar shape if your kid is a rocker or sheet cakes. All can be made with personalized decorations or candles. We love cupcakes for their variety and individual portion size, and because theyre kind of girlie. Dont be afraid to add a personal touch when it comes to the dessert. A homemade dessert is a great optionmaybe great grandmas coconut cream pie that your daughter just loves. This is always a crowd pleaser and a loving sentimental gesture. If your daughter is an ice cream nut, maybe hot fudge sundaes would be the perfect way to finish the meal.

Sweet sixteen party themes are super popular. In addition to the Mardi Gras and Americas Next Model ideas mentioned above, there are dozens of different themes out there. A theme can be carried throughout the invitations, event and even in the favors. Therefore, you should take some time determining a fun theme. Consider ones from Fashion Glam and Formal Balls to Alice in Wonderland, Go Green for the sustainability crowd, Makeover, Sleepover, Karaoke, Diamond Princess, and even the old Toga Party. Our personal favorite is the Limo Scavenger Hunt. You can never go wrong with a limo. My apologies to the Green party people. A survey by one party site concluded that the most popular theme was a glowinthedark neon dance party. The important thing is that the theme reflects your daughters desires or interests. If shes a jock, go with sports. If she adores New York, have a Big Apple party. Fluent in French? How about a Paris themed brunch with crepes, berets and cappuccino if you dare?

When determining how to plan this party, youll need to consider the dcor. Your theme will, of course, influence the decorations. But there are lots of additional decorative touches and ideas you might consider: balloons, candles and flowers, personalized signs or banners, crepe paper streamers, paper lanterns, old jerseys or instruments or costumes, banner size photos and life size cardboard standees of your teen, Photofetti sprinkled tastefully around the tables, or showered on the guest of honor as she makes her entrance. For a dose of kitsch, theres always the giant, blow up birthday cake for the front lawn.

Whether you have your sweet sixteen birthday party at home or at a venue, youll definitely want some entertainment and activities. One of the most important parts of this is making sure you have something fun for everyone to do. Your teen will surely have ideas in this area. Music is a must. Deejays are the popular choice, though we prefer live music. If you go the deejay route, be sure to provide him or her with a list of your daughters favorite music. Karaoke can be fun, as well as palm or tarot card readers. If your teen is in drama club, choir, or gymnastics you might convince her fellow members to perform special skits, songs, or routines. In addition, dancing, water slides, volleyball, badminton, croquet, horseshoes, bocce or tugofwar are all fun and easy ways to involve the group and burn off some of those chips and salsa. One party host rented a mechanical bull, but remember that the goal is to spend your time at the party, not in the ER.

Dont forget those extra little touches that will help make this a day that your teen and her guests will remember and cherish. At the party, create a tasteful display to honor your daughters life and achievementsphotos or photo albums, trophies, awards, uniforms and mementos. Hire or designate a photographer to capture the festivities, and hand out disposable cameras so guests can snap pictures, too. You can always enclose a candid shot of each guest in your thank you notes. Have party favors. Chocolates or tea are always nice; maybe you can include your daughters favorite in a customized wrapper. Did you know you can also get personalized fruit rollups with her name on them? Nonedible favors include customized water bottles, feather boas, rings, sunglasses, hair fobs and more. This is one of the fun parts of the planning that you and your daughter can collaborate on, giggle over, and laugh about for years to come. Now you know how to plan a sweet 16 birthday party! Start planning the biggest birthday bash yet for your little girl!

Nanotechnology Uses

Nanotechnology Uses

Sunscreen Many sunscreens contain nanoparticles of zinc oxide or titanium oxide. Older sunscreen formulas use larger particles, which is what gives most sunscreens their whitish color. The photocatalytic effect means that when UV radiation from light hits the glass, nanoparticles become energized and begin to break down and loosen organic molecules on the glass in other words, dirt. By coating fabrics with a thin layer of zinc oxide nanoparticles, manufacturers can create clothes that give better protection from UV radiation. In other words, silver smothers harmful cells, killing them.source: The Ecologist

New products incorporating nanotechnology are coming out every day. Wrinkleresistant fabrics, deeppenetrating cosmetics, liquid crystal displays LCD and other conveniences using nanotechnology are on the market. Before long, well see dozens of other products that take advantage of nanotechnology ranging from Intel microprocessors to bionanobatteries, capacitors only a few nanometers thick. While this is exciting, its only the tip of the iceberg as far as how nanotechnology may impact us in the future.

In the next section, well look at some of the incredible things that nanotechnology may hold for us.Nanotechnology is making a big impact on the tennis world. In 2002, the tennis racket company Babolat introduced the VS Nanotube Power racket. They made the racket out of carbon nanotubeinfused graphite, meaning the racket was very light, yet many times stronger than steel. Meanwhile, tennis ball manufacturer Wilson introduced the Double Core tennis ball. These balls have a coating of clay nanoparticles on the inner core. The clay acts as a sealant, making it very difficult for air to escape the ball.

How To Loosen Up Tight Hamstrings

How To Loosen Up Tight Hamstrings

Spending too many long hours sitting in your office chair can tighten your hamstrings. While tight hamstrings are not the most painful condition that can happen to your legs, they can be quite uncomfortable and can make walking and even sitting a drag. If you have tight hamstrings, here are some of the easy ways to easily loosen up your hamstrings.

Use exercise balls. Of all the exercise devices that have been invented, few are as useful for tightened hamstrings as much as the exercise ball. The exercise ball is an inflated ball that is large enough to allow you to lie on it, sit on it, and do various exercises on it. It can provide excellent exercise for your hamstrings when you sit on the exercise ball, because you will use your hamstrings to balance yourself as you are sitting on the exercise ball.

Lying hamstring stretches. Not everyone has an exercise ball, however. If you dont have one, you can simply do hamstring stretches while lying down. This is easy to do and can be done before sleeping, or after you wake up. In any case, it will keep your hamstrings toned for the rest of the day. Simply lie on bed and raise your leg. As it is raised vertically, bend it for a few seconds. Hold the position for around three to five seconds and then repeat on the other leg. You only need to do around ten stretches for each leg each day.

Stretching. Another reason why a lot of people end up with tight hamstrings is because they have not properly stretched their bodies before engaging in exercise. Exercise is a great way to naturally loosen your hamstrings, while keeping your body toned and fit and while increasing your blood circulation. The problem, however, is that the muscles can get sore if you do not stretch. Make sure that you spend at least ten minutes before each exercise session to stretch, including your hamstrings. After exercise, cool down with another set of exercises.

Use vibration plates. If you are not the kind of person who likes to exercise, you should consider using vibration plates. These are devices that create vibrations that reach all the muscles in your body. When using vibration plates, the tissues in your muscles are relaxed and are toned; this in effect loosens them up. This includes your hamstrings. Most gyms and fitness spas today have a vibration plate that you can use.

Running. Another way to easily loosen up your hamstrings is by engaging in some light running every day. A quick jog across the neighborhood will not only give you some fresh air and your recommended daily dose of exercise, but will also dramatically loosen up your hamstrings. Best of all, you get better legs for it.

iii Diagnostic Test

iii Diagnostic Test

The third edition of this popular test, the Millon Clinical Multiaxial Inventory MCMIIII, has been published in 1996. With 175 items, it is much shorter and simpler to administer and to interpret than the MMPIII. The MCMIIII diagnoses personality disorders and Axis I disorders but not other mental health problems. The inventory is based on Millons suggested multiaxial model in which longterm characteristics and traits interact with clinical symptoms.

The questions in the MCMIIII reflect the diagnostic criteria of the DSM. Millon himself gives this example Millon and Davis, Personality Disorders in Modern Life, 2000, pp. 8384:

. The first criterion from the DSMIV dependent personality disorder reads Has difficulty making everyday decisions without an excessive amount of advice and reassurance from others, and its parallel MCMIIII item reads People can easily change my ideas, even if I thought my mind was made up.

The MCMIIII consists of 24 clinical scales and 3 modifier scales. The modifier scales serve to identify Disclosure a tendency to hide a pathology or to exaggerate it, Desirability a bias towards socially desirable responses, and Debasement endorsing only responses that are highly suggestive of pathology. Next, the Clinical Personality Patterns scales which represent mild to moderate pathologies of personality, are: Schizoid, Avoidant, Depressive, Dependent, Histrionic, Narcissistic, Antisocial, Aggressive Sadistic, Compulsive, Negativistic, and Masochistic. The configuration of the results of all 24 scales provides serious and reliable insights into the tested subject.

Critics of the MCMIIII point to its oversimplification of complex cognitive and emotional processes, its overreliance on a model of human psychology and behavior that is far from proven and not in the mainstream Millons multiaxial model, and its susceptibility to bias in the interpretative phase.

Im with matte, use Nortans ghost or some other shadow copy type software, make a duplicate of your drive and bury it, get another another one and just remember to backup eveery week. I backup all all the office emails and documents to a 200gb external every Wednesday, someone different takes it home every week Works just fine using windows backup set to incremental.

online backups are harsh on bandwidth, time consuming and how certain can you rally be that the backup server isnt in the middle of some natural disaster area. ye know. cheap storage and all that

so to me, the really appealing thing about the online backup systems is that they backup any new files on your computer daily when your computer is idle as not to suck up your bandwidth

If I forget to close a program, I have it set to automatically backup once per day. I have a 500 GB network drive and use acronis to create incremental backups daily sheduled

To over come this I scedule both pc,s to back up at a time I know the are not bieng used If that doesnt fit just hit back up when you know you have time

I have never managed to get a shadow disk to work ie gohst or such like always get the file corrupt message so I rely on online and network backups.

Hypnosis Techniques

Hypnosis Techniques

Age regression is one of the more popular hypnosis techniques used by accredited hypnotherapists. With this hypnosis technique, hypnotherapists place suggestions into the patients mind, allowing them to revisit thoughts and feelings that they have had at a certain point in their life.

The way that the hypnosis technique of age regression therapy works is by helping the patient to remember the very first time they experienced the problem or bad habit that they are trying to correct. This helps the subconscious remember what needs to been forgotten and acts as a release of the emotional trauma from an earlier time. This occurs if the memory has a negative emotion attached to it. When the subconscious mind is aware that you are ready to deal with the emotion, it can represent the memories for resolution.

Age regression brings a person back to help find the reason for current blocks and clear traumas from the past. At times, for unapparent reasons, things bubble up to the surface of a patient regardless of how how much they want them to stay uncovered. Much like a volcano, they leak out, splattering on everything and there isnt much the person can consciously do to stop it. Things may trigger these thoughts or emotions. These triggers could be a smell like grandmas apple pie, or an idea or a word that is said in an every day conversation. Age regression is a way to go back to those occurences and traumas that left an imprint on the person to finally deal with them and move on.

While in a hypnotic state, an individual can access their subconscious mind. The subconscious mind stores everything we have ever experienced, as well as all the associated sounds, smells, and feelings. Within the subconscious mind, people are much more aware, and more in tune with their senses. The subconscious mind can remember behaviors that patients have utilized as a way of protecting themselves and repeats them until they tell it not to.

So if youre having a difficult time kicking bad feelings, or a bad habit, age regression may be the answer youve been looking for. There are several hypnosis techniques used by hypnotherapists, and age progression is one of the more successful ones.

Incentives May Reshape Medicare

Incentives May Reshape Medicare

The proposed rules spell out how medical providers can form highly regulated groups that have a chance to pocket part of what they save Medicare if they prove they meet key quality care standards.

The rules have the potential to reshape not just Medicare but health care in general, said Manny Fernandez, chief executive officer of Medical Specialists of the Palm Beaches, because private insurers are looking for similar results.

His group has invested millions in new digital medical record and practice management software in anticipation of becoming an Accountable Care Organization as defined by the rules, he said.

This next, major step in the unfolding of the federal health overhaul is one that will last, regardless of legal challenges, Fernandez predicted.

The concept of payment reform is not going to go away, said Fernandez, who runs the largest primary care group in Palm Beach County. The system, the way it is funded, is broken. Something fundamentally has to change.

Administration officials stressed the perverse incentives of the current system. Doctors arent paid for time spent discussing patients care with other doctors. And hospitals earn more if Medicare patients are injured or have to return to the hospital because of an infected wound. Department of Health and Human Services.

One in every five Medicare beneficiaries who leaves the hospital is back within 30 days, and in many cases its because they failed to receive appropriate followup care, Sebelius said. These results are unacceptable, but when you look at how our health system works, they are not surprising.

Under the new rules, primary care doctors the internists and family practitioners who offer general care will take on the role of quarterbacks, tracking the health of patients with chronic diseases like high blood pressure and diabetes, dispatching patients to specialists when needed.

Their electronic medical records will be used by Medicare to assess their performance. If costs are kept down because patients arent getting care, the organization wont get its incentive payment.

Many of the measures depend on patients following their doctors orders and taking their medication.

The government proposed 45 quality measures in all, organized into five groups: patient experience, care coordination, safety, preventive health, and care of atrisk and frail elderly patients.

They include reporting on the percentage of hypertension patients who have kept their blood pressure under control, the percentage of heartattack patients prescribed beta blockers, the percentage of diabetes patients who had an annual eye exam.

Its those type of onesizefitsall quality measures that may make some doctors uncomfortable, said Dr. Mark Gocke, a Jupiter physician.

Thats one of the problems to say that every individual should be treated as xyz? Its like saying everyone should or shouldnt eat one food, Gocke said.

South Florida health providers who join Accountable Care Organizations may have a tougher time qualifying for the incentive payments than their peers elsewhere in the nation, cautioned Linda Quick, president of the South Florida Hospital Healthcare Association.

Thats because South Florida hospitals and doctors now have some of the highest costs per Medicare beneficiary in the nation, and its likely they may have to make much greater changes than their counterparts in other parts of the country, she said.

Specialists, in particular, are disconcerted over this, she said. South Florida is sort of the poster child for perhaps overuse and physicians who have used defensive medicine as a rationale for more tests, more care.

Corporate health attorneys like Jeff Cohen, of the Florida Health Care Law Firm in Delray Beach, said everyone in his industry is poring over the finer points of the rules. What has surprised him so far is the extent to which Medicare beneficiaries have a say in whether to stay in an Accountable Care Organization if their doctor joins one, and to decide whether their data will be used in the performance accounting.

I think it is a tremendous responsibility and invitation being made to the public to take a more active role in their health care, and participate in this experiment, he said.

The expectation of the rules has been fueling a major surge in consolidations at every level of medicine, he said. To qualify for the incentives, the partnerships must cover at least 5,000 Medicare beneficiaries. The mergers will continue, he said.

Microsoft Dexterity Customization Upgrade Overview

Microsoft Dexterity Customization Upgrade Overview

Microsoft Great Plains Accounting Software ERP Development overview for programmeMicrosoft Dynamics GP 9.0 LATAM support, customization, upgrade, implementation overviewBefore you jump into GP upgrade, you should get some hints on how to understand your GP Dexterity upgrade routes. In this small article, which is not technically challenging, but requires IT and potentially programming development background, we will try to give you initial orientation.

Dexterity Customization Technology Utilized. Well, first of all Dex was designed as DB and computer graphical platform independent IDE. Later on, when Microsoft purchased Great Plains Software, Dexterity was optimized for Microsoft SQL Server DB platform and support for other DB platforms, such as Pervasive SQL 2000/Btrieve and Ctree/Faircom was discontinued. For you this means, that first thing to look at is are you on legacy DB platform: Pervasive or Ctree. If you are on mentioned legacy platforms, then your dex custom modules uses socalled Dexterity cursors these may work and may not for newest version of Microsoft SQL Server 2005 plus performance might be not optimized reengineering is recommended to move Dex cursors logic to MS SQL Server Stored Procedures

Dex sanscript in VBA/Modifier code. This technology was used around 19982000, it also sometimes referred as Continuum code generation Continuum for VB and Delphi. In the time, the advantage of this technology was the ability to switch Great Plains third party modules within your VBA scripts and then apply dex sanscript logic to third party dictionary we remember examples when Intellisol Project Accounting and Advanced Purchase Order Processing modules were manipulated in described technology. Drawback of this technology is inability to debug sanscript code in VBA debugger and as such problems with version upgrade, especially when Intellisol Project Accounting was not selected by Great Plains Software to be purchased and integrated into GP set of standard modules

Customized Objects. Dex allows you to customize virtually everything in Great Plains, however the impact on upgradeability depends on the customized objects type. The first idea is to upgrade existing GP objects, such as Sales Order Processing form, for example, however if you do so, when GP releases new version you virtually had to recustomize SOP Entry form again. Opposite to modifying existing forms, you should try to create new forms or if this is not possible and you still need custom logic to hit existing forms, consider Dexterity form trigger approach

Dexterity Reports. These are candidates to be redesigned in SQL Stored procedures or SQL views and moved to SRS preferred or Crystal ReportsGreat Plains.

innovazione mondiale che parte dallItalia

Fino adoggi, i siti di Annunci Gratuiti Online hanno sempre proposto ed organizzatogli annunci di vendita in base alla regione o alla citt dove si trovaloggetto stesso, invitando gli interessati a ricercare quanto desiderato nellapropria regione o citt. Questo modo di pensare certamente comprensibileconsiderando la problematica delle truffe online, che colpisce magliai diItaliani ogni anno creando danni per decine e decine di magliai di euro. Questetruffe, che avvengono spessissimo sui siti di Aste Online, sono presenti anchenegli Annunci Gratuiti, dove che acquista un oggetto da un venditore che nonrisiede nella propria regione o citt, pu vedersi recapitare, dopo aver pagatoquanto dovuto, il classico mattoneoppure assolutamente nulla. Ecco il perch del consiglio di ricercare laffaretra gli annunci della propria citt. Parliamo quindi di un movimento importantedi Annunci Gratuiti, che sono per quasi sempre denominati Annunci Locali. LopzioneCompralo Online non solamente un carrello della spesa dove definire epagare la propria transazione, ma un vero e proprio sistema di transazionisicure. Normalmente, colui che acquista ha 24ore di tempo dal momentodella ricezione per controllare loggetto ed eventualmente inoltrare un reclamoa BaaaM, che in questi casi bloccher il pagamento al venditore, fino allarisoluzione del caso. Questo sistema stato programmato e testato dalla MB EcommerceSolutions su un periodo di 3 anni con risultati incredibili in termini disicurezza e prevenzione delle frodi. PaoloBortolin, uno dei fondatori dei progetti BaaaM e SimplyOffer, sottolinea che Attraversoquesta nuova opzione integrata per la prima volta al mondo in un sito diAnnunci Gratuiti, pensiamo di poter rivoluzionare questo settore e fare in modoche tutti coloro che cercano un vero affare online, possano spingere ivenditori ad utilizzare il sistema dacquisto sicuro per vendere i proprioggetti, per tutte le transazioni che avvengono fuori dalla zona di residenzadel venditore. Questo stimoler lo scambio delle merci su tutto il territorioed aumenter per ognuno la possibilit di fare un buon affare, ci che nonguasta mai in questo periodo di crisi economica. Inoltre, attraverso il sistemada noi proposto, speriamo di poter ristabilire la fiducia che molti Italianihanno perso nelle transazioni online, a seguito delle migliaia di truffe cheavvengono ogni anno negli acquisti online. Tra laltro, BaaaM propone anche unsistema di negoziazione del prezzo direttamente online tra acquirente evenditore che permette ai potenziali interessati di risparmiare moltissimotempo e disturbo ai venditori. In effetti il prezzo pu liberamente esserediscusso attraverso il sistema automatico gestito da BaaaM , e quindi prenderecontatto col venditore unicamente quando il prezzo proposto viene accettato oquando si avvicina a quanto desiderato. un sistema divertente, moltoLatino, che contrasta con il sistema anglosassone delle Aste Online, nonsempre apprezzato alle nostre latitudini, spesso complicato, e che impegnaallacquisto definitivo colui che sottopone unofferta . Questainnovazione nel settore degli annunci gratuiti porta anche molti benefici acoloro che intendono vendere un oggetto online e per il quale inseriscono unannuncio gratuito. Ilprimo vantaggio evidente la promozione del proprio oggetto su tutto ilterritorio italiano e non pi localmente, come nel caso degli annunci gratuiticlassici. Neconsegue un incremento notevole delle possibilit di vendere il proprio oggettoe unaccelerazione dei tempi di vendita delloggetto in questione. Bortolin continuadicendo che Quando avremo sviluppato ulteriormente il sistema di acquistosicuro ed integrato la possibilit di effettuare transazioni tra diversi Paesi,potremo allora parlare di Annunci GLOBALI, invece che di Annunci LOCALI. I venditorihanno anche molti altri vantaggi. Tra i pi importanti vi il fatto che nondevono preoccuparsi di come incassare limporto della vendita, in quanto BaaaM sioccupa di tutto ed offre ai propri utenti acquirenti molti tipi di pagamento,tra cui le carte di credito, le prepagate, i bonifici bancari e i pagamentielettronici direttamente da conti bancari IWBank e IWSmile. In questi casi, il venditore ricever comunque lincasso della propriavendita. SHOPPRO permette di aprire un vero e proprio negozio/vetrina onlineallinterno della piattaforma e di avere una visibilit maggiore sia per lapropria azienda che per i propri articoli in vendita.

Nursing Malpractice on the Rise

Nursing Malpractice on the Rise

have had a field day when it comes to reports detailing the number of deaths each year attributed to medical errors. The numbers are in the millions for deaths and for medication mistakes. If that doesnt throw up a few red flags, then I dont know what will.

Medical malpractice or medication errors med mal isnt within the exclusive domain of just doctors. Nurses have similar high standards to live up to when caring for patients, and for the most part they do their jobs with skill and precision. Unfortunately, things happen and a nurse may be negligent on the job causing an oversight that leads to an injury or death. This kind of a situation is usually referred to as nurse malpractice.

Nurse malpractice is on the rise, more so over these past few years than it was previously. Many pundits point fingers at the medical system and decry the deplorable shape it is in, citing shortages in manpower as being the major reason for nurse malpractice. Keep in mind that nurse malpractice isnt something that is done on purpose. It happens for several reasons.

A nursing shortage isnt really news, but what happens as a consequence of a shortage may be. For instance with fewer nurses on duty, staff works longer hours sometimes over 12 hours and double shifts and the error factor increases dramatically. Fatigue may be a killer in a nurses uniform. Thanks to the shortage of RNs, nonlicensed Nurses aides are also hired to fill the duty rosters.

The most frequently seen nurse malpractice situations deal with nurses not following doctors orders, performing medical procedures without the proper qualifications, giving the wrong dose of medication to someone, or giving the wrong medicine to the wrong patient and not keeping a close enough watch on a patient that needs extra care.

In the cases that I have handled, the consequences of nurse malpractice have been organ damage, death, coma, infections, cardiac arrest and a toxic reaction to drugs. None of these cases were pretty and none of them happened on purpose. They happened because of a variety of factors. Nonetheless, if a patient has been harmed by nurse malpractice, they are entitled to take legal action.

Jfa Watch Winders

Jfa Watch Winders

JFA watch winders are distributed by James Feldman Associates, an Illinoisbased concern made up of several different companies. Since 1972, JFA has been the exclusive distributor of watch winders made by a German company called MTE. The core competency of MTE is turntable motors, seen everywhere on display racks and showroom floors.

It only made sense, then, for MTE to expand its expertise into the world of luxury watches. But the cost of doing business overseas can be prohibitively high, which is why JFA and MTA teamed up to bring American consumers the best, most affordable product available. The combination of MTEs size in the international market, coupled with JFAs domestic reach, makes JFA watch winders a real value for serious watch collectors.

JFA watch winders are designed to keep the mainspring of your watch wound when youre not wearing the piece on your wrist. Winders are built to exacting standards that match the engineering specs of your specific watch. An average watch can lose enough power over the course of a day to warrant anywhere from 300 to 800 turns. Opt for a cheap winder and you may well end up overstressing your watchs mainspring and damaging the watch.

There are several different factors to weigh when shopping for any watch winder. Aside from the aesthetics of the winder, which certainly matter, especially to style mavens, youll want to consider the rate at which your winder turns, the direction in which it turns, and the number of turns per day. If youre not sure what your luxury watch requires, check with the manufacturer or, better yet, consult the instruction manual that came with your purchase.

Its Never too Late for Prudent Business Practices

Its Never too Late for Prudent Business Practices

Could it be that there are some things you overlooking? Getting complacent when things are going well can be a dangerous thing to do. We must always be on the alert for those issues, risks, and occurrences that can knock us off course.

There is an infinite list of issues that can arise that can endanger the success of your business. Not a very comforting statement, I know, but it true. And just like one needs to minimize their risk exposure by selecting which risks to attack or prepare for, you can also pick and choose which issues you might address in a proactive manner to save your business much potential time, dollar and data loss.

As a small business entrepreneur, I been very lazy on both of these fronts in the past. I gone with an unprotected local area network and I gone without regular backups.

While I know for a fact outside users jumped on my unlocked network, I don believe at any time that any of my equipment or data was harmed or infiltrated in any way save for one unfortunate email spamming takeover that got me shut off from my ISP for a day till I removed the damaging spyware. I now use a WAP key to protect my Internet connection from intruders, thus protecting both my data and my bandwidth.

Backing up is a far different story. I lost a third hard drive in my main laptop, which contained all of my critical business files and emails. Unfortunately, at that precise moment due to poor planning, I was without any recent backup. I essentially lost a year worth of data. Normally, it can cost $5,000 or more to attempt to recover the relatively small 120gb of data that I lost, but thankfully I have some good connections and may eventually get most of it back for free.

The message is don take anything for granted. Backup regularly. Personally, I switched to a Macbook, bought a Time Capsule and I now backing up every hour using Time Machine. That may be overkill, but I comfortable with it. Whatever you do, do something.

Small business owners are often unaware that the employment discrimination laws apply to them. Since such business owners usually do not have the luxury of having large human resource departments or inhouse counsel such businesses are often caught in the dark about their obligations under these laws.

Any employer that has 15 or more employees must comply with Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 VII and the Americans with Disabilities Act Employers with 20 or more employees must also comply with the provisions of the Age in Employment Act

As a small business owner/executive, this means that you must educate your managers and employees on employment discrimination laws as well as educate them on the prevention of sexual and other forms of unlawful harassment. Seriously though, once you covered two of your three most important resources data and personnel then it time to move on to protecting your overall mode of operations and, thus, your customer in the longrun.

Step back and review how you do business. Look at the business processes that got you to where you are today. Are they doing what they need to do? Are your customers happy? Is your marketing plan working? Are your supply channels what they need to be and costing you what they need to cost? It never too late to reevaluate all the processes and activities that makeup how you do business and to rereview where you spending your money.

New processes can make you leaner and greener, and therefore more profitable and probably more desirable to your customer. If you don roll with the changes, you destined to be consumed by them. Be proactive about change, and you beat your competitors to the punch. Mr. Egeland is married, a Christian, and father of 7 living in sunny Las Vegas, NV.

Interview with Tobias Ratschiller phpwizard

Interview with Tobias Ratschiller phpwizard

Tobias also appears at seminars around the world giving talks on a number of business and web development issues. PHP Wizard provides a number of free PHP web applications visitors can implement on their own sites. As well as this, PHP Wizard also provides many resources aimed at web developers and programmers.

First off, can you give us a brief primer on what PHP actually is? Also, What kind of additional things does it allow web developers to do with their web pages?

PHP PHP Hypertext Preprocessor is a server side scripting languages used to generate content for the Web. You can use PHP to query databases, generate dynamic graphs, output PDF on the fly, and do many other things. You can compare PHP to technologies like JSP, ASP, ColdFusion, and Mod_Perl.

In your opinion, what advantages does PHP have over other serverside scripting languages such as ASP?

PHP was designed specifically for the Web unlike Java, VBScript, and similar languages. It has over 1600 functions just for dealing with the Web; this offers unparalleled flexibility, development speed, and ease of use. For example, all major databases including MySQL, Postgres, Oracle, and SAPDB are supported natively, without having to go through a slow ODBC driver.

Plus, PHP is free and Open Source. This means, that in case you have a problem, you can fix it yourself or hire someone to do it you dont have to rely on a third party. The new major release, PHP 4.0, is now also ready for enterprise demands, with its full connectivity and high performance.

One of the disadvantages I have heard mentioned about dynamically generating web pages, is the delay for processing when the user requests a page. Does this problem need to be considered or is the delay so slight it is not worth worrying about?

The processing time greatly depends on your specific application. If you have very complex database calls and calculations, it can certainly become a problem, even with fastest technology like PHP 4.0. Generally, though, the execution speed is nothing to worry about. If youre in doubt, benchmark the page and see if it really is much slower than a static page. If it is, you can still use Zend Technologies free PHP Optimizer, which reduces the loading time of the application. With that tool, your pages can even be delivered faster than static ones!

Another issue Webmasters need to consider is the fact that many search engines do not yet index dynamically generated pages. Google has recently announced it will start indexing some dynamic web pages, which is hopefully a sign of things to come. Do you think other search engines and directories will follow down this path?

This is of course an issue. For the search engines, it is difficult to consider the content of dynamic pages. After all, it could look totally different on a second request for example, with a joke of the day application indexing such pages would not make much sense. On the other hand, many sites are purely dynamic, because it makes administration easier. Not indexing these kind of pages would be foolish.

Many search engines solve this problem by not indexing dynamic pages at all. But how do they know whether a page has been generated dynamically or not? After all, its always the same HTML. Knowing that, we already have the solution: Remove all these indications from your site. This way, no search engine will be able to tell that your site is in reality dynamic and index it just like any static site.

Any Webmaster of a contentbased web site which does not use a database or other methods to generate pages will tell you the same thing. It is a nightmare to update and maintain pages manually. What advice would you give Webmasters faced with this problem on the steps towards a more manageable web site?

Learn to use PHP. :

There are different factors playing a role here. For one, many developers simply want to be appreciated and love the emails from users telling them that their application rocks and that their code is terrific. Then, many tools are not developed with a commercial background. For example, I needed a tool to administer my MySQL database, so I wrote phpMyAdmin. Because I had never intended it to make me money, I simply gave it away for free. Last and not least, many developers are users of other Open Source software, and want to give something back to the community by sharing their application.

Finally, from where you stand, what changes in the use of PHP, its functionality and features can you see over the next few years? Does it stand a chance in overtaking ASP in terms of usage?

PHP will certainly evolve to bring even more features to the Web developer and the enterprise. Over the last years, we have seen a continuing trend to more openness and standard compliance. PHP will play an important role in this field, and strengthen its position as leading Web scripting language.

Wine Conoisseurship

Wine Conoisseurship 101

First of all the most basic of questions. What indeed is wine? Wine is nothing more than fermented grape juice. Wine has been known and documented to mankind since Noah of the great flood fame. Genesis 9:24 Covenant of the Rainbow. When Noah awoke from his wine, Every culture on earth except for the Eskimos in the frigid north, where the climate was too cold for normal fermentation , learnt to develop simple alcoholic beverages.

Biologists have long noticed that not only primates such as chimpanzees and man are naturally drawn to the smell of ethanol produced by fermented fruit but also birds. Have you not noticed birds feeding on your fruit or apple trees? They are there for that sensation that fermented fruit will give them. This sensation arises from the alcohol in this fermented fruit, The birds are drawn to your fruit trees much as your neighborhood drunk is drawn to the local tavern or even your fully stocked liquor cabinet and wine cellar.

Humans certainly took an early interest. In fact, historical records provide detailed information on wine and wine growing areas which began in ancient Mesopotamia and Egypt. Today, France and Germany, Hungary, Italy and many other European countries proudly boast wine histories dating all the way back to the Romans.

Wine itself in the end can be made of almost anything not only grapes. Wine can be derived from grape, elderberry juice, dandelions, peach, and apricots and of course apples and even crabapples.

What about the color of the wine. The color of the wine is the result of the length of time the skins remain with the juice doing the fermentation process. Basically wine comes in three colors red reddish purple to light brown, whites whitish pale yellow to amber and the mid range blush: which is of peach to light pink coloration.

Most wines are naturally dry. Sweetness occurs when the fermentation is interrupted before all of the sugar can be converted to alcohol during the fermentation process. The producer of the wine can also add unfermented grape juice or a sweetener such as sugar or honey to the wine in process. Usually this is done for ease with a liquid form of the sweetener.

Most wines are unfortified. That is they contain only the alcohol that was provided for in the fermentation process itself. However there are some wines for example Port, Sherry and Madeira that have their alcohol content increased artificially. This can be done by the addition of anything from simple addition of straight alcohol to the softer form of brandy.

In the end though it is safe to remember that wine is nothing more than fermented grape juice of different colors and bottled in different colors and shapes of bottles. Everything else is just filler..

Why You Forget Peoples Names And How to Remember Them

Why You Forget Peoples Names And How to Remember Them

If you go out of your way to identify and amplify names, it is the easiest thing to show people you appreciate them. A person name is the difference between a stranger and a friend; the difference between a prospect and a client; and the difference between guy, and my newest customer.

But in addition to mastery of these skills, it is equally important to understand why you forget them. If you target this problem at its source, you discover ways to eliminate name forgetting before it begins. I can only remember faces. I always forget people. I don think I ever improve my memory for names. I feel guilty when I ask the person to repeat their name again and again.

Change your attitude! You can continue to make excuses and apologize to people if you forgot their names. If you tell yourself you terrible with names, you always going to be terrible its a self fulfilling prophecy. Moreover, if you apologize to people, you only remind them that you terrible!I failed to focus on the moment of introduction. I was too busy worrying about the correct handshake. I was overly self conscious about my first impression with the new client. I thought about me and not about them.

Forget about you. on them. This is the foundation of customer loyalty. Smile and make eye contact as soon as they say their name. Repeat it back to them within four seconds. Don worry you do remember their name, you will make a good first impression.

The Name Itself

I forgot their name because it complicated. I forgot their name because it too long. I forgot their name because it derived from a culture different than my own.

Ask them about the spelling, origin or context of their name. The longer and more unusual a name, the easier it will be to inquire further. As such, this not only allows them to repeat their name, but you appeal to their personal interests. It shows them you care about their personal information, flatters them and makes them feel valued. I drew a complete mental blank. I was humiliated.

This occurs because a person name is the single context of human memory most apt to be forgotten. So, widen other areas of your memory circuit and repeat the name out loud in the beginning, during and at the end of the conversation. I assume my coworker will introduce me. I assume names aren a big deal.

Be the first to ask. Go out of your way to find out people names. Take your colleague aside and tell them to introduce you to the person clearly and properly. When they do introduce you, be certain to make eye contact with your new associate. I confused people faces. I saw someone name as an arbitrary fact, and did not turn it into a meaningful representation of them.

Look at people facial features when they tell you their name. Dramatize those features and make a memorable connection between the person and their name. My brain was overloaded. Five names went in one ear and out the other. My memory for names has diffused.

Ask the person who introduced you to quietly repeat everyone name in your ear. Then, go around the group and say their names to yourself while you look at their faces. Say them over and over again in your head during the conversation. Do this several times. If all else fails, write the names down, look at their business cards, and/or visualize the person face while you consult your notes.

Practice. Practice. Practice. That the hard part. But over time you will learn how different methods and tools for name memory will work best for you. Whichever learning style best suits your personality; use any combination of visual, aural or dramatic techniques to remember names.. . That the easy part. As practice enhances your name memory over time, it only takes a few seconds to decide to change your attitude. Don tell yourself that you can remember names! Once you have made the decision to go out of your way to remember them, it will only be easier to acquire and master the skill.

Whether you on a sales call, in the field, work at a conference or serendipitously meet someone again at the grocery store, if you remember someone name it will be more valuable to you than gold.

You know how it feels when someone goes out of their way to remember your name. That warm sense of appreciation rings in your ear and resonates like a bell down to your heart. It is a pulse of pure human energy. And every time it happens, it brings us closer together. It fulfills our capacity to instantly and effortlessly connect with each other.

How To Custom Finish Concrete

How To Custom Finish Concrete

Stamped concrete is all the rage in construction projects these days. Instead of just leaving your concrete with a dull, grey and flat finish, you can do all sorts of things with stamping. You can simulate different finishes, such as stonework, concrete slats, bricks, and the like. However, dont limit yourself to stamping and painting the finish. You can use different tools and implements to make a custom finish on recently poured concrete.

Brooming or raking. This particular finish can be useful on driveways or pathways. Dried concrete is usually smooth and slippery. You can add grooves on concrete with the use of a flat broom or rake. Wait for the concrete to harden a bit, and then pass a broom through the concrete in one direction. The texture of the concrete will depend on the coarseness and hardness of the broom. A soft broom will produce a relatively smoother finish, while a harder usually steelbristled broom or rake will produce a coarser effect.

Swirling. This kind of design is easy to do with a trowel. Use the edge of a trowel and move across the concrete in arcs. You can produce wavelike patterns if you do it in regular intervals. However, you can also produce a random effect by just moving your trowel in random arcs, interconnecting at the ends.

Checker board. Create a grid on your drying concrete by using lumber as guides. Run a flat trowel or a bull float in alternating and perpendicular directions to produce this effect.

Exposed aggregate. Exposed aggregate is adding aggregate into concrete, and then washing the surface to expose the pebbles. As the concrete dries, spread small pebbles into the concrete, and press with a board or float until these are almost no longer visible. When the concrete is nearly setting, wash the surface with running water and scrub with a stiff broom to expose the pebbles. Then, leave the concrete to dry and set for another four hours. After this, scrub the surface again with a solution of 20% muriatic acid and water.

Flagstone effect. You can draw lines on the concrete to mimic the effect of using flagstone. Draw lines to create recesses on the concrete. These should meet at random points. Recesses on concrete can also help with water drainage and can further help create a nonslippery surface.

Stamping. Lastly, you can try stamping your concrete, for easy customization. You can purchase custom stamping tools at the hardware or home improvement store. You can check the catalog of custom stamping companies for ideas.

You can combine these different finishing techniques to produce a more dramatic effect on your concrete. Remember to create a custom finish depending on the need and application. For example, a driveway might need a larger pattern. Your backyard might need a more textured surface if it has a swimming pool, though, to prevent any slips. Remember that once cured, your concretes finish will be difficult to remedy, and will require another pouring if you get it wrong.
