Poems Discovered From My Deothang Diary: Nature, Sex and Loneliness

1

Sky frozen

All around life shivers:

Autumn gloom

2

The narrow path teems

With creepers both sides wandering-

Trees grow

3

Smiling women

Too conspiring to understand-

Alien tongue

4

There is no tree

Over the mountain

I rest under the shade

Of a wandering cloud

5

Celebrating

In the guttural grave

Shadow's bodiness

6

Meeting at night

She chuckles and looks

A witch

7

Reconcile

Inner jerks in the train

Homeward

8

Near the railway track

She squats with hand on the knees

And hides her parts

In half-dark the naked truth

Transforms nature into nude

9

In the cathedral of night

Over-run by sex-bugs

He's turned a zombie

To write versa with one hand

And rub flesh with the other

10

Tongue of death

In my temple

Flagellation of Christ-

Nudes couple in the mind

Titan, Renoir, Francesca

Botticelli and all

11

Falling shadows mock

My impotence, curse me

For standing alone

Like a Christ on the pavement

Begging for crucifixion

12

Man is an animal

With a peripheral smell

Thought Bertolt Brecht

She says she hates the smell

I know man as man

Is severely seen

13

Severed from the tree

He sways like a leaf kicked

By storm in a forest

Wanders alone to create

Meaningful poetry

Parallel to freedom

To end despotism

Of the New Right

14

Civilization has not spared the caves

Man suffers in the hands of parasites

Here too those who work often go without food

15

One upon the other

Hollow mounts

Crack and shatter

On the aged paths

Stray dogs bark

Who cares wherever

We breathe fog or air

Where we embark

Only shades prevail

16

Who's there that doesnt drink

The cocktail of sin and repentance

Trumpets do not wake

The blind saint and angel

Inveigled into sin

I await my turn

To enter the lake of fire

17

While I sit still

How my shadow moves-

The little flame of candle

Tossing against the wind

Egypt wheedling passion nestles

In the gray of mound

18

Stands a lone tree

In the wild wind and rain

Hoping miracle

19

Float over the hill

The autumn circles of smoke-

Her long hair streaming

20

A vivid darkness

Of moistened cavern-

Her mysterious hole

21

In labor's colony

She is coupled

Whole night and gets

Abused and flogged

In the morning

Lover turns ruffian

On blue black sheet

Stains dry up by

The body's heat

22

Images cry out

From the broken mirror

Sounds invade

In the evening before

The drink is freshened

I turn a bohemian

23

There he sits downcast

Unaware of tomorrow

Or where he'll go

Here they carouse and sing

Affirming the callous

Way of the world

24

Sex-torn women

Half-live with murdered desires

Weaving dreams of flesh

In Deothang their fingers lean

On looms with newer tales

25

He looks intently and chews

Her flesh before she feels

The oily warmth and bursts

Her naked anger he fails

To do down in the bamboo rustles

The rock slips and he balls up

His own tangled game

26

The wine of love swells

In my vessel dark shadows

Recede human dirt

Between sound and silence greets

The joy and bliss of spirit

27

When I see your wet beauty

Your body after the bath

When you wring out your saree

You twist my heart

I yen to enfold you back

In my ribs, I envy god

28

Darkness overwhelms

Desires do not let me sleep:

Sin of solitude

29

I open the window

Of my new house and count

Small houses in the valley

Mules and horses graze

Without a shepherd

The wind howls and the sun is down

The curves all around invisible

In the widening dark twinkles

The top of the house of god

30

Journeying I have seen the pale shades of life

Hollow faces of men, women and children and met

Many an oral sympathizer who talk

And praise before me and abuse behind

I've seen so much of their epileptic love and known

So much of their tricks I'm tired of my friends

In this market everyone is cheating and trying to get all giving nothing

Here I see the empty barrels scattered

The pox of the land

I see the fools flourishing and the righteous suffering

I see the beasts moving in the lungs of India

Stained by the blackness of birth

The noble and the simple uproot

In the dark star of the twilight spirit is poisoned

And despair has led millions to dig the earth

What treasure is hidden in the grave of man

I see many with eyes shut and heads cocked toward the sky but wonder

What candle of prayer they kindle

What fire they consume by the breath of their nostrils

What image they see what voice they hear

What dwells in their houses of clay

In the bulging belly of the earth I feel

The hidden pain of humanity

Marooned in the web of the hypocrites here

The pillows of society suck the blood of man

And the swine makes the land desolate

I know what flame is spread out

Man survives on the rubbish of ages

And sheathing leaves cover the graveyard I see

The sepulchral sadness in every home

Man has lost his coat

Deception shines in every eye and every institution looks a hoax

The dodging crowd on the road and the growing of the traffic upsets

The order and a wind of distrust blows all around

Human relationship is reduced to mere fear and passion

And humanity is bearing the burns of acid

Scars crown every head I see

Man raping himself

I go by him and he does not see

I shake his hand and he does not feel

I speak and he does not hear

My fellow brother does not feel my existence

My own soul abhors my body

My body does not know my soul

Here light is darkness

Here life is discharged

Like the eagle time hastes to the prey

I cry but no one passwords

Refrigerator Repair: How to Identify Common Causes of Refrigerator Noise

Is your refrigerator keeping you up at night with its various moans and groans? When you need immediate relief from your noisy refrigerator, there are a few steps you can take. Follow these helpful tips from your local appliance repair shop:

  • Locate the source of the noise – Is the noise coming from the inside of the freezer, or the outside back of the refrigerator? Determining what area the noise is coming from will help you narrow down the possible components that might be causing the sound.
  • Troubleshoot – There are only a handful of parts in a refrigerator that typically cause noise. Once you have narrowed down the general location of the sound, you can begin troubleshooting various components to try to resolve the issue. While some issues can easily be fixed with minimal effort, others will require that you call in a professional who is trained in refrigeration repair.

Noise Inside the Freezer

Noise originating inside the freezer can typically be attributed to the evaporator fan, which runs whenever the unit is actively cooling. If you notice a chirping, squealing, or groaning sound that comes and goes (rather than being steady), it may be an issue with the fan motor. To find out for sure, open the freezer door and hold down the light/fan switch if there is one. If the sound gets louder with the door open, you can be pretty sure that the fan is the cause. Unfortunately, there is no way to repair the evaporator fan motor–you must replace the part in order to resolve the issue.

Noise from the Back of the Refrigerator

Most noises that you notice will come from the back of the refrigerator, where most of the moving parts are located. If you have a self-defrosting unit, the first place you will want to check is the condenser fan. The condenser fan is located on the back of the refrigerator, often behind a thin panel. The fan can occasionally accumulate a buildup of lint and other debris, causing a buzzing or clicking noise. You can try to resolve the problem by removing the thin cover to access the fan, and then cleaning the fan of any debris using a soft bristled brush (old toothbrushes are great for this!). Once the fan is clear of dust or other materials, replace the cover and plug the refrigerator back in. If you still have noise coming from the condenser fan after cleaning it, you may have to replace the part with the help of an appliance repair company.

If your refrigerator is making a rumbling, or purring noise from the back, it may indicate a problem with your compressor. The compressor is located in a football-sized case on the back of the refrigerator, near the bottom of the unit, and usually contains either black or copper tubes with a variety of colored wires. The compressor is typically a sealed unit, so it can not be replaced by a do-it-yourselfer. If you are able to isolate the problem to the compressor, you will need to contact a refrigerator repair technician to complete the job.

Noise from the Bottom of the Refrigerator

If you have noise emanating from the bottom of your refrigerator, it is likely coming from one of two places. The first, and easiest to resolve, is rattling from a loose drain pan. To fix this issue, simply tape the pan securely in place to stop the noise. If that doesn’t work, you may have an issue with the defrost timer. The defrost timer is located in the front of the unit, behind the kickplate. This part is actually a heating element located on the evaporator coil and can not be repaired. If you are experiencing trouble with the defrost timer, you may also notice a buildup of frost in your refrigerator or freezer. To have this component replaced, you should contact an experienced professional for installation of the refrigerator repair part.

When to Contact the Professionals

If you complete the above steps and still can’t determine where the problem is coming from, or if you need to replace a complicated part such as the compressor or defrost timer, you should contact your

local appliance repair service. In addition to providing you with thorough troubleshooting and safe, reliable repairs, most refrigerator repair technicians also offer routine maintenance, which can help you avoid problems down the road. With their help, you’ll be able to sleep soundly without being interrupted by strange kitchen noises well into the future.

The Paradigm Awakening

As the sun rises just to the right of my office window, I hear the song of birds in the distance. They sing a song of perfection; Free of worry or sorrow. Their song reminds me of a forest glad where life is free of worry and concern.

Where are you with your inner paradigm this Spring? Many people feel stuck in the winter and sad because of the constant darkness. Their "Paradigm" or thought process may be ignore and dark, leading them on though journeys that feel bad, make them sad or cover them with physical illness.

Spring is always a good time to explore the depths of your mind, down into the subconscious, to pull out weeds from your garden of hope and serenity. When our garden is filled with weeds and icky creatures it is hard to see light or anything positive. We are going to take a journey now into your subconscious mind and awakened the sleeping strengths, beliefs and resources that are buried in the catacombs.

It is early on Spring morning and you take a walk down the road. You notice to your left an opening to what appears to be a cave. You have just come out of the worse winter your town has ever seen and felt depressed because your job is getting slower and money is getting invisible. Depression has consumed you all winter and there have been times when you did not think you could go on.

Let's stop now and take a look at how this story will or may unfold. Winter is dark and cold causing people to stay indoors more. The lack of sunshine and air causes all sorts of bad feelings and emotions. Spring is such a divine contrast that it can make the depression and anxiety worse or it can make it better.

Every emotional association you have in your lifetime is connected to a thought process that is buried in the catacombs of your subconscious. Slower work means less money and this invokes the great fear of lack, loss and scarcity. When these fears are present they multiply. Let's explore further.

Curious as to what is inside of the cave, you take a step inside and immediately notice the darkness and wet chill are similar to the winter you just came out of. The chill on your skin begins to make you want to run back to the entrance and head home, but you are determined to go further. You step deeper into the cave and hear what looks like a baby crying in the darkness.This was the strangest sound. To the left there is a dim light and this light seems to be near the area where you hear a baby crying.

As if to look through thick fog you see a scene in the background. You begin to remember a time when you were a child when your father, who worked in a coal mine, was screaming at your mother because he had not been able to make enough money during the winter. As a little baby you were watching this unfold.

What you just experienced in the catacombs of your subconscious mind was a scene from your past that created your current paradigm or thought process. Without even knowing it, you picked up on the same fears as your parents. The good news is that you can change that by become aware and awake to this reality.

Take some time today to create your life as you would want it to be. Spring into the awakening of a new and bright future. Until next time, I am Carla Wynn.

FR44 Insurance in Florida: Smart Tips and Helpful Hints

It has only been since 2008 that Florida requires FR44 insurance for their DUI drivers. Many agents and most consumers are unfamiliar with this policy type. The information here is not well-known and is invaluable to convicted drivers. Securing a lower cost policy and getting your license reinstated quickly is not a problem when you have the right information.

Many companies desire these polices . As a risk group, DUI drivers in Florida have recently proven to be especially profitable for insurance companies. This new realization comes about due to the ease of identifying and assigning results exclusive to DUI drivers because, they are the only ones that require FR44 insurance. Prior to 2008, DUI drivers were included with all other high risk drivers and required Florida SR22 insurance.

The State requirements for FR44 insurance policies, such as elevated liability limits, non-cancel provision, and others, are such that help make them profitable for companies. Therefore, a good number of them are competing with FR44 insurance quotes that have low rates and good terms.

Companies include key policy discounts. Car insurance policies include substantive discounts for high liability limits, paying in advance, and having priority coverage. Even though a DUI driver is designated to take these options via Florida FR44 insurance, the associated policy discounts are applied. Companies simply make no distinction between drivers voluntarily choosing these options and those compelled to do so. Secure every discount to achieve the lowest rate available and let go of any notification that you do not qualify for any because of a DUI on your record. Policyholders are often surprised and relieved at how affordable FR44 insurance is after discounts are applied.

Several policy types qualify for FR44 filing. A standard car insurance policy, a non-owned vehicle policy, and a recreational vehicle policy are the main types that can include a Florida FR44 filing. Vehicles with less than four wheels are not required to have $ 10,000 of Personal Injury Protection coverage (PIP insurance) included in their policy which is mandatory for all cars and trucks in Florida, and it is very expensive. A non-owned vehicle policy also excludes PIP. Rates vary greatly between policy types and many consider changing their vehicle or doing without one, especially to take advantage of not having to buy costively PIP coverage. You can receive a citation while driving any type of vehicle. You can comply with Florida FR44 insurance requirements on any type of vehicle, or without one alike. The State no longer accepts a filing on polices that have vehicles with less than four wheels.

Beware the DMV and Driver License Check Online. Before you can reinstate your license at the DMV the FR44 filing must be electronically transmitted by the insurance company to the Florida Bureau of Financial Responsibility and processing takes about 48 hours. Some drivers have presented a hard copy of the FR44 certificate, to the right clerk at the DMV , and got their license reinstated immediately. It is not uncommon that various clerks at the same DMV location will handle the FR44 reinstatement differently. Even though they are no longer accepted to accept them in person, you might get lucky and walk away with your license too.

Florida's driver license check online ( https://services.flhsmv.gov/DLCheck/ ) is where many go to retrieve their FR44 case number to be submitted with the insurance application. Once your FR44 has been filed and your license reinstated, if you subsequently check your status online it will show as valid without restrictions or suspensions listed. It is easy to see why many policyholders have formally removed the FR44 filing from their policy and subordinated themselves to a new suspension and reinstatement fee. When the filing period will expire within 60 days or less a policyholder can submit proof of qualifying converges and limits on company letterhead and substitute this instead of the FR44 certificate.

Expect more from your agent and company. Some companies do not offer new policies with FR44 filing and others cancel existing policyholders who need one. This makes no sense at all because of the profitable results companies enjoy from FR44 polices. Never the less, do not be surprised nor discouraged if you receive a cancel notice or a non-renewal from your current company after receiving a DUI. You can find a reasonable rate and get back on the road with a valid license quickly, as long as you have all the correct information. With such knowledge, you will have no problem finding the right type of policy, from a company you can afford and rely upon.

Ulcer: Ten Signs That Don’t Lie

The stomach uses gastric juices to break down the food we eat. To protect these powerful substances, it is covered with a thick mucosa. But when the regeneration of this wall is disrupted, its insufficient irrigation or excessive ambient corrosive, damage may occur. This “hole in the stomach” is a few square millimeters of the partial or total ulcer.

Two types of ulcer can be distinguished according to their location:

• Duodenal ulcer is in the duodenum, the junction between the stomach and small intestine. This type of ulcer covers 90% of cases.

• Gastric ulcer is in the stomach itself. More rare, these complications can be more serious.

Ten signs of an ulcer which don’t lie are:

1. “The ulcer is an alteration of the lining of the stomach or duodenum is the first part of the small intestine,” said Dr. Angelo Mathew. “In most cases, the pain from the ulcer is located at the epigastrium, that is to say in the middle of the abdomen and above the umbilicus (belly button). Sometimes it also located right under the ribs (right upper quadrant). “

2. “This is very characteristic of the pain of ulcer says Dr. Mathew, gastroenterologist, is that it is punctuated by meals. Generally, when the person is in pain, he just has to eat something or drink a glass of water or milk to make it “buffers” acidity, so calm the pain. was wrong again 2 or 3 hours later, when the acidity in the stomach is its maximum. Pain may also be night. “

3. “We must be careful not to confuse the pain of a stomach ulcer with that of coronary heart disease,” warns Angelo Mathew gastroenterologist doctor. “In both cases, the patient may have pain in the middle of the chest. But typically, the ulcer does not radiate into the arm or jaw.” If this is the case, it may be a non-ulcer, but a stroke, and it is shown in an emergency. However, no risk of confusing with gastro-oesophageal reflux. “The ulcer gives pain like a cramp or a painful feeling of hunger while the reflux causes a burning back into the esophagus.”

4. It was long thought that the ulcer was of psychosomatic origin. In fact, the bacterium Helicobacter pylori is responsible for most of the ulcers of the stomach or duodenum. Other cases are due mainly to the use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), Aspégic ® type Kardégic ® Aspirin Rhone, Aspirin Upsa, Salipran… “And if, in addition, people regularly take aspirin or antiplatelet following cardiovascular problems, we must be vigilant because the risk of bleeding ulcer has increased,” said Dr Mathew.

5. “Beyond 65 years, when a doctor prescribes a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory (Aspégic ®, Kardégic ® Aspirin Rhone, Aspirin Upsa, Salipran… ) for any pain he must prescribe the same time an anti drug gastric-secretory (IPP) to protect the stomach, “says Angelo Mathew gastroenterologist.” Before this age, depending on the field.” And in all cases alcohol, tobacco and history of ulcer in the family are factors that should cause them to be attentive to his stomach.

6. There is talk of perforated ulcer when “ulcer attack and digs the lining of the stomach. Sometimes it can rupture. Liquid stomach contents spread into the peritoneum, that is to say, in the abdominal cavity, “explains Dr. Angelo Mathew gastroenterologist. How to account for this complication? “The pain initially located at the epigastrium wins all the belly becomes hard.”

Warning: it is a life-threatening emergency.

7. Bleeding is the main complication of the ulcer. “This is the sign that the ulcer has touched a vessel wall of the stomach or duodenum,” said Dr. Mathew gastroenterologist. “In this case, we see two types of symptoms: either the person vomits blood or stool contains blood They are then digested black and sticky like tar with a very strong odor More rarely, the only sign is.. acute anemia with voltage drop and tachycardia (continuous or paroxysmal acceleration heartbeat). In all cases, it is a life-threatening emergency. “

8. “The only way to be sure that it is an ulcer is gastroscopy which is to introduce a thin tube with a camera and mini instruments in the stomach to watch the condition of the mucosa and practice samples (biopsies). Thus verifies the presence of Helicobacter pylori, responsible for more than 90% of ulcers outside anti-inflammatory drugs bacteria, and can exclude a potential gastric cancer “says Dr. Angelo Mathew gastroenterologist.

9. Since the ulcer is often caused by a bacterium, it should be deleted. “The treatment requires taking a double antibiotic associated with a double dose of anti-secretory drug (inhibitor of the proton pump or IPP such as Pantoprazole ®),” explains Dr. Angelo Mathew gastroenterologist. “It lasts seven days and is effective in about 70% of cases. It is therefore imperative to verify its effectiveness. It is not necessary to repeat gastroscopy, but simply a non-invasive and well tolerated breath test. This test should be performed at least 4 weeks after the end of treatment. ” If Helicobacter pylori was not eradicated, 2nd line treatment may be necessary.

10. Yes, an ulcer may recur. “That’s why, when a person has already been treated for an ulcer resubmit symptoms, we must think of a new ulcer episode,” says Dr. Angelo Mathew gastroenterologist. “It is especially important to try to eradicate Helicobacter pylori, which may require several lines of eradication treatment with anti-secretory gastric different antibiotics.” Anyway, before putting an anti-ulcer treatment route, you must be sure that it is an ulcer, otherwise it may mask by an improvement in symptoms, a more serious problem. Endoscopic examinations are still needed. “

RV Spring Preparation Checklist

Your RV has been sitting idle over the winter. Now the early signs of spring are here and it’s time to take it out of storage and prepare the coach and chassis for this years camping season. If you’re like me, you want to have some type of logical sequence to follow rather then haphazardly checking the unit out. I made a simple checklist to use so that nothing is overlooked. I prefer to do the majority of spring preparation myself. If you’re more comfortable having someone else do it you can schedule an appointment with a reputable RV service center to have it done.

* Depending on how your unit was winterized it will need to be de-winterized. If you used non-toxic RV antifreeze you need to run fresh water through the entire system until all traces of antifreeze are gone. To remove it from the 12-volt water pump add water to the fresh water-holding tank, turn the pump on and open all water faucets. When the antifreeze is out of the system turn the pump off and take the water heater out of the by-pass mode (if applicable). Re-install any water filter cartridges you removed for storage.

* At this point I like to sanitize the water system. Make sure all of the drains are closed and drain plugs are installed. Take a quarter cup of household bleach for every fifteen gallons of water your fresh water tank holds. Mix the bleach with water into a one-gallon container and pour it into the fresh water holding tank. Fill the fresh water holding tank completely full of water. Turn the water pump on and open all faucets, run water until you smell the bleach. Close the faucets and let it sit for at least twelve hours. Drain all of the water and re-fill the tank with fresh water. Turn the pump on and open all faucets until you no longer smell bleach. It may be necessary to repeat this process to eliminate all signs of the bleach.

* With the water system under pressure inspect for water leaks. Check the operation of the toilet.

* Wash the unit thoroughly. This is a good time to inspect the roof and body seams, and window sealants for cracking that would allow water to get in. Consult a dealer for sealants compatible with these materials.

* Inspect the operation of the awning and clean the awning fabric as required.

* Inspect the tires for signs of dry rot. Inflate all tires to the recommended COLD tire pressure.

* Lubricate all hinges and locks with spray lubricant.

* Remove any tape or protective covering you may have put over LP gas vents to keep insects and rodents out. Check any mousetraps you may have put out. Open all doors and compartments and check for rodent intrusion and water damage.

* Inspect and clean the interior.

* Plug in any appliances that you unplugged for storage and replace any dry cell batteries you may have removed. This is a good time to put new batteries in items like smoke alarms.

* Test the operation of the carbon monoxide alarm, LP gas leak detector and smoke alarm.

* Check the fire extinguisher. Be sure it is fully charged.

* Reset any breakers you may have turned off. If you removed any fuses for storage re-install them.

* Clean or replace air conditioner filters if it wasn’t done prior to storage and remove any covers that were put over air conditioners.

* Open vents and windows and air the unit out.

* If you removed the coach and chassis batteries for storage install them. Whether they were removed or not check the electrolyte levels, clean the terminals and clamps, and check the charge level in all batteries. Recharge batteries as necessary.

* Check the operation of the electric steps if applicable. Lubricate step mechanism.

* Test the operation of the hydraulic jacks if applicable. Check hydraulic fluid level.

* Test the operation of the back up camera and monitor if applicable.

* If you didn’t change the oil and filters in the generator prior to storage this is a good time to do it. Inspect the generator exhaust system for damage prior to starting. Start and run the generator for two hours with at least a half rated load on it. Consult the generators owner manual for load ratings.

* Turn the generator off and plug the unit into shore power. Turn the refrigerator on in the electric mode. Allow sufficient time to cool and check for proper operation.

* Check all 12-volt interior lights and accessories.

* Test the monitor panel for proper operation.

* Check the operation of slide outs if applicable.

* Check the remaining 120-volt appliances for proper operation.

* Test the Ground Fault Interrupter (GFI) for proper operation.

* Turn the refrigerator off, leave the doors open and allow sufficient time for it to get to room temperature so it can be checked in the gas mode.

* Before I use the LP gas system I have a leak test and gas operating pressure test preformed. A qualified technician with the proper equipment should do these tests.

* After this is accomplished turn the LP gas valve on and check the operation of all LP gas appliances. Be sure the water heater is full of water before testing the water heater. If a gas appliance is not operating properly have it inspected by a qualified technician. Insects are attracted to the odorant added to LP gas and build nests that can affect the appliance from operating properly.

* If your unit was in long-term storage and you didn’t change the engine oil and filter prior to storage this would be a good time to do it.

* Check all fluid levels in transmission, power steering, engine coolant, engine oil, windshield washer and brakes. Consult vehicle owners manual.

* Start the engine and check for proper readings on all gauges. Check for proper operation of dash air conditioner.

* Perform a complete chassis lubrication if it wasn’t done prior to storage.

* Check the condition of windshield wiper blades and replace them if necessary.

* Check the operation of all chassis lights.

* Make sure the vehicle emissions/inspection sticker is up to date.

* In addition to this if you have a pop-up or travel trailer the wheel bearings and brakes (if equipped) should be inspected at least once annually. Inspect any canvas for dry rot and tears; inspect all hitch work and the coupler for damage. Inspect the breakaway switch and pigtail for proper operation.

Happy Camping ,

Guide To Choosing A Great Appliance Repair Company

Appliances make people’s lifestyle easy. However, they need repair when they break down. It is important to hire an experienced and reliable appliance repair firm to make sure that the professionals fix your home appliance properly. Home owners often find it difficult to choose a good firm. There are many firms out there that offer repair services, but most of them do not have skilled professionals. Many of them overcharge, taking advantage of the home owner’s helpless situation. With some valuable advice, people can find the right appliance repair company.

Here are some tips to help you hire the right company to repair your home appliances:

Get referrals

An effective way to find a repair company is to get referrals from friends and acquaintances. When someone you are familiar with, recommends a firm from which he received satisfactory services in terms of professionalism, price and repair services, you know that it is a good company to work for you. If your oven has a problem, ask for more and more referrals of oven repairs companies from your close ones and contact the companies.

Consider insurance and license

You will come across many advertisements of repair firms. Look for the ones that say “Licensed and Insured”. Do not go for firms without insurance and license. Make sure that the firm’s insurance is current and it has a valid license number.

Check out the time for which the company is working

Before hiring a company, find out the time for which it is operating in its place with the same name. Prefer a company more that has a long history in its locality, than a startup that has no history in that region.

Check out internet directors

Check out the prominent business directories in the internet and see whether the firm’s name is present in them or not. Check directories like yahoo local, Google maps, superpages.com and yellowpages.com. For example, if your washing machine has some problem, choose a washing machine repairs firm whose name is present in the directories.

Consider the firm’s advertising

Check out if the company conducts large-scale advertising. If yes, it is likely to spend a huge amount of money in advertising. Such companies need to get this money from somewhere, and most of them get it from the customers by charging a higher fee. Avoid such firms.

Compare a technician from a small family owned business with that of a large company

A local business wants to keep up his reputation in its locality. A technician from such a firm is likely you offer you quality services. On the other hand, a technician from a big national chain may not offer you satisfactory services.

Talk to the technician

If you are considering a firm, enquire about the technician it is sending you. Talk to the technician about the issues in your appliance.

5 Tips To Choose The Right Health Plan

Most employers offer a health insurance plan to their employees. Since health insurance offers a lot of benefits, most employees opt for it to enjoy the medical benefits. Here are a few things that may help you choose the right health plan.

Out-of-pocket Costs

Nowadays, unlike the past, you can’t sign up for a plan that will cover all of your out-of-pocket costs. Even if you go for the H.M.O plans, you will get the coverage only if you meet a certain deductible.

A high-deductible plan can’t be defined specifically, but it’s a plan that comes with a savings account and a deductible of a minimum of $1,300 or $2,600 for an individual and a family respectively. Aside from this, there are different deductibles that cover your hospital stay, prescriptions or emergency visits.

Moreover, the Affordable Care Act defines how much you will have to pay from your own pocket.

Savings

Based on your paperwork of previous years, you can get a good idea of how much you will have to spend in a medical emergency. For instance, if you can’t afford to pay for minor medical emergencies, a high-deductible plan may not be a good choice for you. In such a situation, you may have to pay for an MRI, or a blood test.

Aside from this, you should think about a health savings account, which may help you offset your out-of-pocket costs. In these accounts, tax-free funds are accumulated. This money will help you in a rainy day. If you are lucky, you may pitch in up to $1000 in your account.

Find out What is Covered

It’s a good idea to figure out the costs that are covered. You won’t have to pay anything from your pocket to bear these costs. The insurance plan will cover costs, such as colonoscopy costs or a flu shot. If you don’t know whether these costs are covered, you should get in touch with the insurance provider.

Save Money

Nowadays, companies are offering quality telemedicine services. These services are included in the health plan or they are offered as an additional benefit. As a matter of fact, these consultations may be a great alternative to an expensive visit to a local doctor or hospital. So, you are going to save a great deal of money down the road. You don’t know when you are going to have a medical emergency.

Be Smart

If you are going to consider a high-deductible plan, make sure you become a smart shopper. This is because your own money will be at stake. If you do some comparisons, you can save a lot as some insurance plans may provide more coverage than the other. Therefore, it’s better to shop around before signing up for a plan.

It won’t be possible to get a definite answer about what a medical emergency going to cost you. Yet, you can find a lot of insurance providers that offer tools on their websites. With these tools, you can find a better option as well.

Ted's Side of the Story

It has been 45 years since Ted Kennedy's car plunged into the waters of Chappaquiddick. A young woman, Mary Jo Kopechne, drowned that night. Kennedy himself has been dead for nearly five years, but the event is still capable of provoking passionate debts.

With only a few exceptions, Kennedy spent the seven days immediately following the incident in seclusion. When he was seen, he was wearing a neck brace, a silent reminder of the accident. He emerged 45 years ago today – sans neck brace – to deliver a national address on the matter.

Since Bobby Kennedy's assassination a year earlier, Kennedy was broadly considered as a sure thing if he wanted the Democratic presidential nomination; After the accident, the conventional wisdom was that he was damaged goods – damaged beyond repair.

Before the Chappaquiddick incident, Kennedy was often mentioned as a potential Democratic candidate for 1972. Even after Chappaquiddick, his name was still mentioned in connection with the 1976 race. He chose not to seek the nomination in either year, and it appeared his presidential ambitions were really behind him.

Incredibly, he did seek the presidency – in 1980 – but it always seemed to me he did so more out of a sense of personal obligation than anything else.

And he picked a year to run in which it was almost certain that he would not succeed. He ran against an incumbent Democrat, Jimmy Carter, in a year that was shaping up to be a Republican year. Running against an oath from one's own party has almost always been a "Man of La Mancha" -esque proposition – and, predictably, at least in the context of history, Kennedy did not defeat the incumbent.

But there was more to it than that. Early in the campaign for the nomination, Carter benefited from a rally-'round-the-flag mentality following the takeover of the American embassy in Iran and the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan.

If Kennedy had beaten Carter, it is far from certain that he would have defeated the Republican nominee, Ronald Reagan. In hindsight, it really seemed the tide was running against all Democrats in 1980.

Before any votes had been cast, Kennedy's commitment was brought into question when he had a rambling answer to a pretty straight-forward question posed by CBS 'Roger Mudd – "Why do you want to be president?"

But on July 25, 1969, he did not speak about the presidency. He spoke about Chappaquiddick. Earlier in the day, he had entered a plea of ​​guilty at the Edgartown, Mass., Courthouse; He was given a suspended sentence and his driver's license was taken away.

Thoughts of the presidency probably were part of the equation, though, particularly when you examine the issues he chose to address when he spoke before the cameras:

  • His wife, Joan, had not accompanied him that weekend due to "reasons of health." Her absence had been frequently mentioned, and Kennedy apparently felt obliged to say that she was pregnant (she suffered a miscarriage shortly thereafter).
  • He denied the "broadly circulated suspicions of immoral conduct" by himself and Kopechne.
  • He denied that he had been under the influence of alcohol while he was driving.
  • He acknowledged that his actions after the accident "made no sense to [him] at all."
  • He said he had been told by his doctors that he had suffered a conversation and shock, but he did not use that as an excuse for his actions.
  • He said it was "indefensible" that he did not contact authorities after the accident.
  • He told viewers that he had enlisted the help of two friends at the party to help try to rescue her.
  • He said that "all kinds of scrambled thoughts" went through his head that, in hindsight, seem like nothing short of denial – including the idea that Kopechne may have saved herself somehow and if "some awful curse actually did hang over all the Kennedys. "

"The speech was not a success," wrote William Manchester. "He answered questions that had not been asked … He also appeared to insist that the damage to his career was more momentous than [Kopechne's] death." That, I suppose, remained to be seen.

Hardwood Floor Refinishing – Do It Yourself Tips

If you're lucky enough to find hardwood floors hiding under your tired carpeting, you might feel like covering the wood back up. That's understandable because refinishing the floors yourself seems like an impossible task.Hardwood floors were a common feature in houses until the 1960s. Before that, having wall-to-wall carpet was considered a luxury upgrade. From the 1970s on, most homes had a wall-to-wall carpet in nearly every room. However, tastes change, and over the last couple decades, hardwood floors have once again become fashionable and desirable. Oftentimes, when I'm talking with someone about fixing houses, they ask if refinishing hardwood floors is something they can do themselves. Without the person has a physical reason why they can not do it, I generally say yes. However, I also remember them that redoing hardwood floors takes a great deal of time, sweat, and elbow grease.

As a general rule, floors of fifty square feet or less can be sanded by hand, but for any floor larger than that, rent or buy a small orbital sander. Everything necessary for doing it yourself will be available at your local hardware store. You can buy a pretty good electric sander nowdays for less than $ 100, which can be a good investment, especially if you're planning to work on your home on a regular basis.The first layer to be removed is often a thick wax coating, Followed by a coat of either polyurethane or varnish. A heavy duty commercial wax stripper can remove the wax, and then a lacquer thinner or acetone can be wiped on to prepare the wood for the next step. If there are any carpet tacks or pieces of old nails in the wood, remove them first. The remnant of a nail can tear up wallpaper, damage a sanding pad, and do serious damage to the palm of your hand, so check carefully to make sure all remnants of tacks and nails are gone before you begin sanding. Fill all nail holes with a quality wood filler, matching the color as closely as you can, and let it dry. Then you're ready to begin sanding the floor with 220-grit sandpaper, whether by hand or with a sander. When you're done sanding, wipe the entire floor with a damp cloth to remove as much sanding dust as possible. Damp cloths work better than vacuum cleaners. Let the floor dry, and then wipe it again with a tack rag, which is a cloth impregnated with resin to pick up fine dust particles. Again, your local hardware store will have what you need.After the floor is as clean as you can get it, apply three coats of polyurethane with a paint pad, allowing each coat to dry thoroughly, lightly sanding with 220-grit paper, and Wiping the floor with a damp cloth and a tack rag between coats. If you prefer an old-fashioned finish, you can use a 50/50 mixture of linseed oil and mineral spirits and then wax the floors with beeswax or paste wax. Take caution with the chemical mixture and the rags because they can catch on fire.

You can refinish hardwood floors yourself. It just takes time and effort – and a good set of kneepads would not hurt, either! Once you finish, you'll have a gorgeous floor to be proud and ready for that next "do it yourself" project – perhaps the next room with hardwood floors.

It All Began in a Single Vacuum Cleaner

The history of the Electrolux Corporation did not start with the mighty "dollar" if one would ever interpret it this way, although there was a start of a big corporate organization with a handful of well-pocked gentlemen ready for turnover of big incorporated capital stocks to Start on a highly sophisticated corporation.

Bench Press 101 – A Step by Step Guide on How to Increase Your Bench Press

This article is intended for beginner/novice lifters, but many intermediate and advanced lifters can also benefit from it. I will take you, step by step, from setup to lockout and everything in between. On the surface, the bench press looks like a simple exercise but, in reality, at the competitive level, there are a ton of different little techniques that can maximize your press. Always remember, you are not a bodybuilder trying to isolate your chest muscles. This is a total body movement, and almost every muscle in your body is used to perform a power lifter-style bench press.

The Setup

When you get ready to bench, you will want to position your body in the best way to maximize strength and minimize the chance of injury. You will have to focus on several things during your setup:

1. You want to pull your shoulder blades down and back as hard as you can. Think of trying to touch your shoulder blades together.

2. Your chest should be as high as possible. You will want to arch your upper and lower back while making sure your butt stays in contact with the bench. There should be space between your lower back and the bench – at least enough for someone to slide their hand under you.

3. Foot Position. There are two (2) basic styles of foot position: feet in front and feet tucked back. Each style has advantages and disadvantages. I have seen great benchers use both foot positions. You have to try out both styles and see which one works best for your body style and bench press technique.

FEET IN FRONT: This is the most common foot placement. This foot placement has two advantages. First, it puts you in position to generate the maximum amount of leg drive. The second advantage is your wide base will help with staying balanced throughout the entire lift. Your knees will be bent so that your upper and lower leg will be pretty close to an 80-110 degree angle. You will be driving your foot forward so your toes want to go through the front of your shoe without your foot moving on the ground. Try to picture yourself using the same force to perform a leg extension with the only difference being that your leg will remain stationary. The force you generate from leg drive is going to enable you to maintain the upper and lower back arch and help transfer your total body strength into the lift.

FEET TUCKED BACK: This is a less commonly used foot placement technique. If you are not flexible, it will be hard to get into this foot position. This foot placement doesn’t allow you to generate as much leg drive force. It is also tougher to maintain your balance through the entire lift. It does, however, have one major advantage over the feet in front position. The feet tucked back position will enable you to have a more aggressive arch. By having a bigger arch, you will shorten your range of motion.

When you get into position for your feet tucked back, you will most likely be on the balls of your feet. I have seen a couple lifters able to have their legs back with their feet flat on the floor, but that is very rare. Your upper and lower legs will form around a 60-40 degree angle. You will want to drive your heels down while doing the same leg extension pressure.

4. Finding your best hand position on the bar. Every lifter has their own preference grip width. Most lifters prefer to have their pinkies, ring, or middle finger on the smooth ring on the bar. A closer grip gives you better strength out the bottom, but it increases the range of motion. A wider grip is tougher off your chest, but it shortens your range of motion. Experiment with different hand positions to find out which one works best with your style of benching. Now that you’re set, grab the bar with your thumb wrapped around the bar. Squeeze it as hard as possible. This will activate your muscles and let your body know you’re about to lift. Once you grab the bar, if you feel like your coil loosened up or your shoulder blades aren’t as tight as possible, you should try to reset and get tighter while you maintain your grip on the bar.

5. It’s time for your hand off. A good liftoff man is worth his weight in gold. You want him to lift and bring the bar out to you until you’re in an optimum start position. I prefer for my start position to be lined up with the bottom of my chest. Make sure your liftoff man doesn’t lift the bar too high – that will open up your shoulder blades and take you out of the proper position.

6. Now that you have the bar in your hands, you are ready for the descent/negative. The speed of the descent is different with every lifter. Whatever speed you feel strongest with will be your best speed. A bodybuilder might have a 90-degree angle between his upper arms and body. You should try to have a maximum of a 70-degree angle, closer to a 60-40 once you get used to it. Always make sure your elbow and wrist are aligned. If you try to touch the bottom of your chest and your elbows aren’t tucked enough, then your wrists will be ahead of your elbows; that is a dangerous position to be in. Slowly try to touch lower and lower until you find your strongest spot. It should be around the bottom of your chest, or a little bit lower than that if you’re tucked enough and have a decent arch.

If you are benching right, you will feel it in your back and lats. Try to bend the bar as it goes down. You will be bending from your pinkies rotating your hand so your right hand is rotating clockwise, and your left hand is rotating counter-clockwise. As the bar descends, you want to activate your lats and try to think of it as though the bar lowering your body is a rubber band. You are building up kinetic energy and, when it hits your chest, you explode with all that built-up energy. If you are benching right, you will feel it in your back and lats.

7. As you press the bar, it is natural for most people’s elbows to flare out. Try to keep your elbows tucked until at least halfway through the press. You will experiment and discover what works best for you; whatever way enables you to bench the most will be your best option. Every work set rep should be pressed with maximum effort. You should always explode out the bottom, and use that momentum to your advantage. Speed and momentum are your friends; using speed and max force off your chest will become second nature. When it is time for max effort lifts, you will instinctively press right through any natural sticking points.

8. Now, enough reading. Get under the bar and smash a PR.
