Overview About Mist Eliminators

Mist eliminators, also known as demisters, are devices that remove liquid droplets or vapor from the work atmosphere. This device has found some applications in many industries where such vapors are released as a by-product of the different chemical processes. Manufacturers produce standard or specialized devices to work as an important part of various industrial operations which include absorption towers, distillation towers, separation tanks, gas separators, evaporators, and so on. Various industries like metallurgy, petroleum, medicine manufacturing use demisters in their production processes or environmental protection measures.

Working Principle of a Mist Eliminator

Standard demisting devices work on the principles of inertia and dispersion. The liquid vapor rises with the gas and passes through the eliminator pads. These pads are fitted with wire meshes with openings that correspond to the predetermined average vapor droplet size, which is generally in the range of 3 to 5 micrometers. Due to the increasing inertia of these droplets, they get attached to the wire meshes. With subsequent passes, these collected droplets get heavier and heavier due to the tensile and adhesive properties of liquids, ultimately falling off the pads. In this manner, the vapor liquid is essentially separated from the gaseous emissions passing through standard eliminator pads.

Advantages

Eliminator manufacturers of today produce demisters of various sizes and capillary openings based on the above principle. A standard mist eliminator has various advantages as listed below.

· It is an essentially simple device; its size is only dependent on the gaseous emission pathway dimensions

· For such a basic device, it is highly efficient in removing liquid vapors with minimum disturbance to the actual process

· Eliminators improve the output by removing vaporized impurities; they also make gaseous emissions, safer by helping to separate potentially harmful compounds

· With no external power needed for its operation, it is a cost-saving device

· The liquid deposits may be collected and re-processed

Types

According to the requirements of specific industries, there are various types of these devices produced and operating in several industrial applications. However, we may segregate mist eliminator devices into three basic categories as discussed below.

Standard Mist Eliminator

These are the basic demisters that may be used in normal work environments. These devices can work efficiently in standard gaseous emissions, separating liquefied vapors. The mesh sizes of these devices are bigger, and they can sustain low to moderate amounts of gas pressure.

High Efficient Mist Eliminators

These demisters are capable of efficiently handling moderate to high levels of gaseous outputs. The mesh diameters of this type of eliminator are generally smaller for higher liquid retention.

Shock Absorption Mist Eliminator

These are the optimum mist elimination devices meant for use in high-speed machines, where there is a high amount of gaseous emission in an enclosed space. These smallest mesh diameter pads can absorb liquid vapors with the highest degree of efficiency and minimum impedance.

Thus, eliminators are a simple but essential part of those industrial processes requiring efficient and cost-effective liquid vapor separation.

The Ultimate Guide to Becoming A Sensual Man – 8 Things Any Man Can Do

What does it mean to be a sensual man? There are a number of things sensual men do, routinely and naturally, that make them more sensual than the rest of their brotherhood. Some do a few of them and others do all of them but none of these men consider any of these things to be an affront to their masculinity.

Would we call them Metrosexuals, Ubersexuals, or Heteropolitans? Would we say that they’re in touch with their feminine side? Maybe. I would say that these guys are evolved. As I wrote in a blog post a couple of months ago, they are a different breed of cat. They allow themselves to freely and unabashedly express their true selves in a very sophisticated, yet authentic way. They’ve gotten out of their own way, broken through the stereotypes of maleness and refused to accept the teachings of the caveman.

It isn’t about being ego-centric, vain, self-absorbed or a walking fashion model wannabe. This is a man who has confidence in himself, who is clear about what he wants out of life, how he wants to show up for himself, his family, his lover, his friends, his colleagues and the people he encounters on a daily basis. He either has a natural predisposition toward the finer things in life or he has developed a healthy appreciation – in either case, his lifestyle is a life-of-style laced with a generosity of spirit for him and others.

Before going further, there’s a precept worth underscoring here. Men can develop their sensual side – it is a matter of mindset – it’s a decision. It does take time for the evolution to occur but the effort is worth the result.

Here are 8 things any man can do to develop your inherent sensual side.

1. Grooming Heads the List

From head to toe, a regular grooming regime is essential. Good grooming is just a habit and once you get into the swing of it, you won’t even think twice about doing it.

• A good haircut that is style forward, age appropriate and works well with your type of hair is critical. It is one of the first things people will notice about you so it is essential to keep your hair trimmed and looking sharp.

• If you want to cover grey or spruce up your natural hair color, leave it to the professionals. The extra expense is definitely worth the result.

• Use a face wash/scrub in the shower. The skin on your face is more sensitive than the rest of your body so it’s best not to use bar soap or shower gel for face cleansing. If you have a beard, keep it well trimmed and make sure you shave your neck hair. Get a good personal groomer for the nose and ears.

• Moisturize your skin after shaving. Get a good moisturizer and eye cream. Many men are buying anti-aging creams lately. Moisturizers and eye creams make a big difference with hiding fine lines and wrinkles. Don’t forget to include your neck in this routine.

• Keep your nails trimmed short and clip the cuticles. Consider the possibility of getting a manicure and pedicure once a month or so.

• Trim your eyebrows in a natural shape or go to a salon for waxing or threading.

2. Dress Appropriately For Every Occasion

You’ve heard the expression Clothes Make the Man (Mark Twain). What you wear says a lot about who you are. Again, it’s one of the first things people will notice about you. In fact, they will draw conclusions about you based on your attire. Whether you’re fashion forward in your clothing selections or not, there are certain things you need to keep in mind.

• Keep your clothing clean, pressed and neat looking. Have your shirts done professionally. Make sure the buttons aren’t broken and are sewn on securely. If the garment starts to fray or the cleaners can’t get a spot out completely, it needs to be thrown away or donated.

• Color coordinate. If you have trouble with color, invite a trusted friend over to help you pair up your shirts, ties, suits, socks, belts and shoes.

• Keep an eye on the fashion magazines to see what’s in style. Buy a few new things each month to keep your wardrobe fresh and to make you feel sharp.

• Hang up your clothes at the end of the day. A suit that hasn’t been hung properly on a good hanger will look rumpled and people will notice.

• Put some thought into dressing for an occasion. If you’re not sure what the attire should be, ask the host or hostess

• Make sure your shoes are polished and in good condition. Also, make sure your belt and shoes are the same color – don’t mix your blacks and browns.

3. Women Love a Man Who Cooks!!

Lots of guys Barbeque and that’s great but what I’m talking about here is preparing a full meal from shopping to serving.

• There are lots of cookbooks out now that have easy recipes that anyone can follow and foodnetwork.com is packed with great information and cooking tips/techniques.

• If you’re new at it, practice on yourself. When you get a recipe down pat, invite a friend over and the next thing you know you’ll be throwing dinner parties.

• Women love it when a man cooks for them. They’ll see it as thoughtful and incredibly endearing.

4. Your Home is a Reflection of You

The sensual man knows how important it is to live well. Your home may not be a penthouse but it needs to be well kept, attractively decorated and welcoming.

• If neatness doesn’t come naturally to you, consider the possibility of hiring an organization professional who will help you categorize and sort through your belongings so that everything has its place. Once you

have that tackled, you just have to practice picking up after yourself.

• Consider hiring a housekeeper to clean thoroughly at least every other week.

• Keep the dishes washed and at least in the dish rack – not sitting dirty in the sink.

• Make the bed daily and keep the towels hung neatly in the bathroom.

• If you don’t have a good sense of decorating, ask a friend to suggest some ideas or hire a decorator. If money is an issue, think about hiring a local college student from the School of Interior Design. Remember, you don’t have to do everything in one go.

5. Entertain Your Friends

Entertaining is your opportunity to share your home with your friends and do something special for them. You don’t need to wait for a special occasion, just decide it’s time for a party and start planning.

• Plan the food and drinks carefully to ensure that your guests are comfortable, well cared for and have fun (there is lots of information on the Internet to help guide your plan)

• Try to have coordinated plates, cloth napkins and nice glasses for your guests as opposed to paper and plastic.

• Buy a few candles, including candle holders to make the room warm and inviting.

• Put a candle (preferably scented) in the bathroom and make sure there are clean hand towels for your guests.

• Make sure the house is neat and clean

• Select music specifically suited for the people who will be attending.

• Unless you are throwing a big bash, make sure there is enough seating for all your guests.

6. Are You Listening?

An evolved, sophisticated man understands the art of conversation and the importance of learning more about someone else’s life by listening and asking questions. Here are some tips for perfecting the art of conversation.

• Ask thoughtful and follow-up questions to pull out more details. Listen to their answers and maintain comfortable eye contact while they’re speaking.

• Don’t interrupt

• Avoid preambles and life stories – make your point and move on

• Be careful about getting too personal, especially at a first meeting.

• Don’t engage in one-upmanship – it’s annoying

• In a group setting, don’t talk to just one person and don’t dominate the conversation.

• Think before you speak – keep your foot out of your mouth.

7. Cultural Well Roundedness

The sensual man fits in anywhere – from the Sports Arena to the Opera House. He stays up-to-date on contemporary culture, he knows what is on exhibit at the major museums, he attends the theatre as often as possible and from time to time he enjoys the Ballet, Symphony and the Opera.

• Read – it increases your vocabulary, stimulates your imagination and deepens your knowledge base enhancing your conversational skills

• Familiarize yourself with current events

• Expose yourself to what’s happening in pop culture – read top blogs, know what is popular on TV, stay current the music world and the latest movies.

• Travel for enjoyment and to learn about other cultures

8. Emotionally Speaking

Expressing and showing emotion doesn’t come naturally to most men. I learned recently that testosterone actually dampens feelings in men. So, men have to work at it but when they do, they find that they are happier and their relationships are happier too. I found the following useful tips on a website called Men’s Line Australia:

• Be aware of the sensations in your body. Emotion always manifests somewhere in the body. Anger might be experienced as a flush of heat in the face, sadness as a tightening throat, anxiety as a knot in the stomach. Practicing some forms of meditation can help you to get in touch with these sensations and learn to understand what they mean.

• When you are feeling angry, ask yourself what other emotions you might be feeling? Are you really sad underneath, or afraid?

• Take the risk of showing your vulnerability with people who you feel safe with. Give yourself permission to be a human, not a robot.

• Break the mold; ask for help when you need it.

• Learn to put words to what you are feeling.

• Try counseling. Talking with a ‘professional listener’ may help you identify the feelings behind a particular concern.

• Identifying and expressing feelings is learned behavior – it only takes practice.

How to Affect a Smooth Transition

It isn’t always easy to make changes in our lives but here are a few tips that you can employ easily to make this or any transition go more smoothly.

• Goals: Set out measurable goals complete with target dates. Start your day by rewriting and reading your goals to keep them firmly planted in the forefront of your mind. Goals are actions not wishes.

• Balance: Incorporating the sensual side of you into your lifestyle requires that you find balance among all of the demands on your time. Notice the times when you feel overwhelmed and think about what is causing it. If you can’t eliminate the stress factors involved, consider the possibility of changing the way you react to them. You have a right to your life; you are in charge of it and you always have choices on how you live. Always.

• Set priorities: You don’t have to react to every email, text or telephone call.

• Nurture yourself: Your mental and physical wellbeing is a critical element to your fulfillment. Get plenty of exercise and rest. Eat well, drink plenty of water, go for a massage, and try meditation. If you treat your body well, it will reciprocate.

• Time management: If you are a procrastinator, take a good look at the level of stress that is bringing to your life. Make a list of the things you need to get done and think of creative ways to get them accomplished. You don’t always have to do everything yourself. There are plenty of people who will handle the things you don’t want to do and it doesn’t have to cost a lot. Outsource.

• Be positive: Take a few minutes every day to think about what you’re grateful for. You can do this one at the same time you are rewriting and reading your goals. It will help you see how far you have come, appreciate what you have and inspire you to move forward to greater things.

• Love yourself: True love isn’t something that’s going to come to you someday, from someone else. It starts with you. Giving yourself the gift of becoming a more evolved, well rounded, balanced human being will open your mind, your soul and your heart.

The Simplast Guide to Pressure Cookers

Are you slowly daft when it comes to the kitchen, everything that is in it and what happens inside? Be glad to know that you are not exactly alone in the world with this quandary. Feel even more fortunately that there are pressure cookers which will avert those hungry days and nights.

When someone buys anything with a thick instructional booklet, he or she instantaneously thinks that this is useless. Completely ignoring this is one of the biggest mistakes of most people. The first tip in this very simple guide to pressure cookers is to read that guide and understand it well.

A lot of manufacturers will state easy to follow instructions how you will cook with it, clean and then store it properly. You should also remember that each cookware will have different guidelines on use. Spending a few minutes of your time on this can help you a great deal and prevent so many problems in the process as well.

Once you have read this, make sure that you will follow it to the letter. For instance, one of the most important things that you should do is to keep the lid closed and securely locked. Another vital instruction which will prevent burns and other accidents is to make sure that pressure in the chamber has already dwindled before you open it.

More often than not, brand new cookers also come with a recipe booklet. Follow this well, too. Apart from the step-by-step method on how to prepare your meal, the suggested cooking time of various meals are also printed.

There are also some tips for using pressure cookers that you will not find on the booklet but are all over the internet. Do your research. For instance, you should slowly shake the cooker when the pressure is increasing so that the temperature inside will stabilize.

Cleaning and storing are also of great significance – especially if you want your cooker to last you a long time. You will be lucky in cleaning if your cooker is dishwasher safe. If that is not the case, you should take the pieces apart very before you wash and then dry this meticulously. There are other pieces of advice about this but you will certainly succeed in doing this if you read the guide first.

So, what if the pressure cooker you have was passed on to you by your grandmother? Do the same thing, really. Read. If it does not come with a handbook, do your research. If this is actually obsolete, it would benefit you more if you buy one of those cookers instead.

The newer versions created which are safer and more convenient for homemakers out there. Electric pressure cookers are so wonderful nowdays that you can cook the food within the right time. No more undercooked or overcooked meals for your family no more. These are also easier to clean and store.

Now, even if you are completely dim-witted with that stove, even if you have hundreds of recipes to follow, cookers can help you prepare food that is surprisingly delicious, healthy and fast to make.

So many people are talking about how valuable the pressure cooker is in their kitchens and you are thinking of getting one for your home. Lucky you if you decide to get the electrical version – that is way easier to use and you have a guide to follow.

Build a Solar Energy Panel As a Another Activity

Build a Solar Energy Panel as a Fun Activity.

I am certain you have been on the web and happened to see writing on solar technology. I was recently on the web and I came across a relatively exciting handbook. The guidebook said it could teach a regular homeowner how they could save money on their electric fees as a result of building a solar energy panel. I need to declare I believed it was a bunch of hype. On another hand my child had a science fair approach therefore I believed it may possibly be a nice project we could take on then enter it into the fair.

What I Found Out Was Truly Amazing

When we watched the video guide. My kid and I looked at each other then I said "well it does not appear to be hard" Keep at heart he is only 9 years of age that my son had an amusing look on his face once I said it. What we found out was pretty amazing. It was incredibly straightforward to stick to the video tutorials plus it did not cost me a whole lot of cash to fabricate my original solar energy panel.

"Dad Will It Really Work"

This was very low-priced and painless to build. Conversely even though it had been a cool assignment to accomplish I did wonder the identical thoughts as my child. Once we completed the solar energy panel my son looked up at me and said "dad will it really work" Hmm I do not know let's give it a stab.

"Currently I am saving Energy as well"

As soon as I followed all the video instructions plus hooked everything up. I still can not believe it to this date. We could not believe this inexpensive effortless to make solar energy panel is really generating electrical power. I need to state this was an exceptionally painless project to undertake and I am happy I decided to buy the "solar energy panel video guide" because at this time I am saving energy as well.

"Even when the environment is not your craze"

The truly magnificant part regarding this endavor is you do not have to be very into the whole environmental aspect to accomplish this. Even when the environment is not your craze. I found this to be an incredibly easy way to save cash plus in accomplishing this I discovered an innovative hobby. We are now making another solar energy panel used for my big garage I'm extremely convinced it is going to power the entire ship for nothing.

Candida Diet Eating Plan – Eating Starches Only at Your Last Meal

In your candida diet eating plan, have you tried eating your starchy vegetables (potatoes, squash, corn, etc) and bread only at your last meal of the day? That way, if you become tired after eating, you are set up for bedtime when your energy naturally slows down anyways. This suggestion was given to me by a “medical intuitive” at a workshop I attended last time. She said this was what she did because she had also had candida and allergies that she had dealt with and still watched what she ate and when.

Eating starches only at your last meal is exactly what the Carbohydrate Addict’s Diet is like. I get great sleep with carbs as my last meal. That was not a last snack, by the way. No one should be eating too close to bedtime. It takes about four hours to digest a meal. If you eat a carb meal at 6:00 pm and go to bed at 10:00 pm, you will be able to follow the four hour rule you were told.

Feeling weary after a meal as well as dozing off is a classic sign of a bad digestive system. It may mean you are eating too large a meal at one goes. I have also been told by another person that our first meal of the day should be our largest meal, lunch should be a bit smaller, and the evening meal the smallest of all. Also, a lot of people benefit from having small meals throughout the day rather than three bigger meals.

For a person who goes to bed around 3am and has her last meal at 11pm, I suppose it gives just enough time for the food to be digested if she is active between those times. But, not getting really sleep could also be a sign your digestive system is still active.

Brazilian Wedding Traditions

Brazilian Weddings are rich in tradition and culture. They are often very expensive and the bride’s parents usually pay for the wedding, but that is becoming less common because of the overall cost. Brazil is a Christian nation and, therefore, holds several customs similar to other Christian regions; however, there are a few traditions that are different.

Wedding Rings

Unlike in the US, engagement rings are not that important and instead the couple exchange wedding rings. The rings are placed on the right hand and then are switched to the left hand during the wedding ceremony. It is customary for the bride and groom to write each other names on their ring. It is considered bad luck to drop the ring during the ring exchange and is told that the marriage would not last if it was to happen.

Kitchen Shower

Unlike a typical wedding shower that is done in other countries, in Brazil they throw what is called a Kitchen Shower. It used to be a small gathering of close friends of the bride so that they may catch up and give gifts that the bride will use for her kitchen. However, the gatherings have been getting bigger and not even men are able to join.

Wedding Party

A Brazilian bride may wear whatever color dress she wants, but white is a tradition. However, it is custom to wear golden shoes. It is considered bad luck for the bridesmaids to match; therefore no two people are able to wear the same color. Unlike in the US and other European countries that pick out their grooms-men months in advance, in Brazil, the groom could wait up to the last hour before picking his. The wedding party is often three couples who are very close to the bride and groom, they however do not have to be in a relationship together.

Before the Ceremony

It is a tradition that the day before the wedding the Brazilian bride and her family go to a spa to take a break. There they can get a message, as well as do their hair, hair and make-up before the big day. However, when the wedding actually is there, it is a tradition for the bride to be at least 10 minutes late, for it is considered it good luck. There are times where the groom and the rest of the guests have to wait a few hours before the bride finally shows for her big day.

Wedding Ceremony

The wedding ceremony is done like most Christian weddings. However, some differences are that the bride has two flower girls accompanying her, one that distributes the flowers and the other one who is more like a ring bearer. Then the bride and groom will recite their vows and then switch their rings from their right hand to their left hand to symbolize the change from betrothed to marry. Most wedding ceremonies can last up to an hour, but at other times it could last even longer.

Wedding Reception

The wedding reception is a huge party that the guest and newly-wed couple drinks, dance, and give speeches. One tradition is for the couple to exchange presents to their parents. Often the bride will take off her shoes and place them in the middle of the dance floor. As the guest dance around, they will drop money into the shoes to help support the newlywed’s financial future. Instead of a wedding favor, it is custom to give a Brazilian sweet, bem casado (meaning “well married”), to their guest as they leave.

Confessions of an Acetyl-L-Carnitine Powder User For Bodybuilding

Acetyl-L-carnitine powder has become a vital component in the regimen of many athletes and body builders. With its antioxidant effects, ALCAR supplement protects the brain cells from damage and helps in the biosynthesis of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter vital in brain and nerve function. As an amino acid, it is used by the body to burn fat and turn it into energy. Anyone will appreciate an extra boost in energy, especially those who engage in strenuous activities. To attest to the beneficial effects of acetyl-L-carnitine powder in his physical performance, a body builder shared his first hand experience with the said supplement to provide information to other body building buffs.

Why?

Upon sharing his experience, Stephen warns that, as with other personal evaluations, a certain level of subjectivity may affect his account on his experience with acetyl-l-carnitine powder, as every individual responds to things differently. Like most male gym aficionados, Stephen’s motivation to pump iron was to lose weight, look and feel good, and develop in himself a gravitational pull no woman can resist.

How?

To attain this goal, he does plenty of cardio exercises and asked for the help of his gym buddy, acetyl-L-carnitine powder, whom he met while reading up on ways to bulk up. The literature’s claims that acetyl-L-carnitine powder can help him to concentrate on his workouts, provide mental clarity, which he really needs while at work, and aid in burning fat into energy are what convinced him to take 600 milligrams of ALCAR supplement, three times daily, before workout, mid morning and mid-afternoon.

Oh, no!

Despite going through two gross days of cough, runny nose and green discharge, he kept on because he already anticipated this from what he heard from others who also took the bodybuilding supplement. Good thing these effects did not last long. However, he also experienced disrupted sleep at night, characterized by restlessness, nightmares and frequent waking up, each time he took his daily last dose after four in the afternoon. Such terrible nights were prefigured with a bout of jitters. If he skips the mid-afternoon shot, he gets terrible headaches in the evenings, like a withdrawal symptom to nicotine or caffeine. So he made it a point to take this famous daily last dose before four in the afternoon. He took these side effects as a sign that acetyl-L-carnitine powder is really at work and is not just a placebo.

What happened?

After sometime of acetyl-L-carnitine powder intake, he noticed that he has more focus when at work and during workout, he was even able to more than double his cardio endurance level. He had also shed off fat but he is unsure if he can credit it solely to his intake of acetyl-L-carnitine powder as he wants also to acknowledge the beneficial effects of his diet and exercise routine which has toughened up when he started taking the supplement.

This is a personal experience of one body builder who supplemented his workout program with acetyl-L-carnitine powder. Indeed, he achieved the goals he has set for himself. However, due to the presence of other factors, we cannot credit this workout success solely to acetyl-L-carnitine powder, albeit we can sense that Stephen somehow felt satisfied with the said supplement. His results, however, is consistent with findings in some animal and human studies showing that acetyl-l-carnitine powder can increase endurance and can aid in shedding fat. The best way for you to find out how it is is to try it for yourself.

Improve Your Technique To Score Match Plays In Golf

If you surf on line and search on golf techniques a number of sites come up with free training videos, than you can compare your techniques against the one demonstrated by professional.

Physical limits based on condition are common, and it is important to practice, in order to get our bodies to perform correctly by stretching and training our muscles.

To work multiple shots with an eye on improving your overall technique is vital, you want to get your post and you grip on the club in good form all the way around.

It is important that you think in positive terms because you subconscious mind does not understand commands framed in the negative. For example if you think in your mind do not forget to aim translate into forget to aim and that what's happens in reality.

So, it is paramount to exercise your muscles, think in positive terms, and watching yourself to correct your mistakes. After you taking in consideration these elements, scoring at each hole below comes down to strokes in a smooth way. Your aim is to hole the ball in fewer strokes than the opposite side.

Match play is usually performed on a full 18 holes, but the game can also be prolonged or brief if necessary in order to determine a winner.

Terms such as: holes up, all square (when both side are in tie), so many to play (if you are halfway through a typical course), and dormie are common used in match.

This is some of the basic but if you want to check is better to use an up to date rule book in order to completely understand what to do in cases such match concessions, hole, stroke and penalty.

Choosing the Best Indoor Lighting

Looking at the grand scheme of things, lighting would seem to be on the bottom of the priority list when decorating a home. Not so! The type of light and the type of lighting fixture can make or break a room. Choosing the proper lighting can be fairly involved to determine exactly what you need. It is definitely advantageous to spend a bit of time looking at all the options available before settling on just any fixtures for your home.

To determine what type of light should be in a certain room, take a look around. View the light that's in each room at different times of the day. A room may appear to be flowing with light in the morning, but may look dull and uninviting come the afternoon. Be sure to keep drapes and blinds as you would normally. If generally speaking you keep the blinds shut, you should keep them that way while determining the light flow in your room.

Next, take a look around at dark corners that need to stand out a bit. Especially if darkness lurks in a spot that you perform various tasks in, it will be important to think of lighting options for that area. Not only is this important for the appearance factor, but having the proper lighting can help decrease eye strain.

Allow natural light to flow into any room possible. Natural light is a mood booster. We feel better when the sun shines through and it is relaxing.

Take a look at all style options available. A decorative lamp or light fixture can make a room come together. Some rooms in a home might also benefit from having a ceiling fan attached to lighting. Depending on the room, a ceiling fan fixture can help with the overall feel of the room with not only the lighting aspect, but the temperature as well.

With so many styles, prices and features available, it is possible to make every room in your home feel inviting.

Meaning of Dreams – Dreaming About Your Past

When you see dreams in which you are living in your past house, wearing old clothes, or being much younger, this means that you are repeating the (usually wrong) behavior you had in the past.

Your dreams have a specific meaning, which you’ll be able to verify in practice once you learn the scientific method of dream interpretation, discovered by Carl Jung and simplified by me, who continued his research, discovering more and proving that he really discovered the right code for a perfect dream translation.

I turned his complicated method of dream interpretation into a very simple and clear method of fast dream translation that even a child can learn. The dream language is like any other language made only by words. The difference is that instead of speaking through words, the wise unconscious mind speaks through images and scenes.

You’ll observe that the unconscious mind is your protector and sends you many warnings when you are wrong, when you are making mistakes, and when you cannot see what is happening to you.

If you are living in a past situation in your dream, this means that you are still attached to your personality as it used to be when you were living the past situation you see yourself in.

This is not a good sign, unless you used to be wiser when you were younger, which is not probable. Usually dreams about past situations remind you of your childish personality, about a time when you were too ignorant and didn’t understand the meaning of your behavior.

Your behavior reflects your mental health. If you are behaving like a child, this means that you are being dominated by your primitive side, the side of your conscience that didn’t evolve like your human side that is sensitive and can discern what is good and what is bad. Your primitive, animal side, is totally immoral, cruel and sneaky like a wolf.

It imprisons you into false, inadequate and ridiculous behavioral patterns, so that it may lead you to craziness and despair, completely destroying your human conscience, and this way, control completely your behavior.

Never be indifferent to the unconscious’ warnings in your dreams!

If you are repeating a wrong past behavior, this means that you are in danger: you have to live in the present, and have a better behavior, be more mature, and more serious, so that you may escape from the traps of the absurd side of your conscience, and from the traps of the dangerous world where you are.

Face reality and abandon your childish thoughts and feelings. Learn how to automatically translate your own dreams the same way you learn how to translate automatically English to Spanish, and use this tool forever.

You’ll have constant advice and guidance in all aspects of your life. The unconscious mind will help you become more intelligent, and find real happiness, without being threatened by hidden dangers like now.

Run Your Business Like You Run Your Family

The business plans adopted by most companies offer little or no room for creative thinking. However, these same plans want the business to be more productive this year than last. If the business manages the employees and the sales in the same manner year after year, they will soon hit the glass ceiling of productivity.

That glass ceiling is there thanks to the stringent beliefs that business is somehow different than family. On the contrary, if you run your business the way you run your family, you will see increases in productivity, sales, profit and more.

In your home there are certain rules that may be unspoken but understood. When you finish a meal, the dishes are washed, dried and put away. When there is laundry to be done, the clothes are neatly folded and placed back where they started, in the drawers or closets. When it is time to go to bed, the children hustle off to brush their teeth and the day is completed in a successful manner.

In your business, these same things need to occur with the same efficiency. When a mess is made, both literally and figuratively, that mess needs to be cleaned up. Waiting around for another person to delegate the task on is simply a waste of time. Sure, there are higher managers who believe they are below changing out the towels in the men's restroom, but it is not better to make the change now rather than have to deal with someone complaining about it later.

In the office setting, goals that are set up as future goals need to have regular intervals of productivity reporting. Everyone needs to stay in communication and when things go wrong, the entire team needs to work together to find a solution in the same way a family works together.

Life in the business world is not much different than life in the world of home life. If you run your business with the same goals and expectations of your family, you will see the profits increase, the productivity soar and, if you are lucky, a bond between the business and the employee will be born.

Are Bamboo Or Cork Floors Right For Your Home?

If you've decided to undertake a remodeling project this year, you might be surprised when it comes time to look at floating options. The traditional carpeting and vinyl options that dominated the market for decades are giving way to a growing number of eco-friendly materials, such as cork floors and bamboo wood flooring. Made from renewable resources with limited chemical treatments, these floors promise to deliver a cleaner, greener home environment. But do they live up to these claims? And are they right for your home?

Cork Floors
The last time you popped a bottle of champagne, you probably never imagined that the same cork could also double as a sturdy, eco-friendly flooring material. Cork is highly sound-absorbent and is one of the most easy-to-clean types of floors available, which makes it ideal for the kitchen, playroom, or family room. It's also a naturally renewable resource made from the bark of the cork oak, making it a natural, green flooring choice.

If you choose a cork floor, look for the real thing-steer clear of products with formaldehyde added or cork-vinyl composites, which contain toxic chemicals. And make sure to select a sealer with a low-VOC content, to prevent chemical gases from harming the air quality in your home.

Bamboo Wood Flooring
No longer just a staple of panda bears, bamboo is quickly becoming one of the most popular eco-friendly flooring choices. Although it is the world's largest grass, do not be fooled-bamboo flooring is harder than red oak or maple and will last 30 to 50 years. This durability, along with a clean, elegant look, makes bamboo an excellent choice for any room. Bamboo is a renewable, biodegradable resource and is also among the few flooring types that require minimal modification in manufacture.

When purchasing a bamboo floor, look for an adhesive without formaldehyde, a toxic chemical. And make sure to ask the installer to conduct as much sawing and sanding as possible outside of the home to protect your indoor air quality.

Hit the Floor Running
If you're looking for a durable, environmentally-friendly flooring option that will not harm the air quality in your home, cork floors and bamboo wood flooring are ideal choices. Both are affordable investments that will enhance your home for decades. So what are you waiting for? Show your friends and family your eco-friendly style, and hit the floor running on your next remodeling project!

How Does Smoking Cigarettes Reduce Stress?

It is said that cigarettes help to reduce stress and help people relax, a fact smokers regularly produce when asked why they can’t quit smoking. “I can’t quit I’m too stressed out.” Is a common sentence uttered by many a smoker every day. And when in a tough, problematic, critical and anxious situation a smoker will more than likely ‘need’ a cigarette to calm his nerves.

And smokers also get several other benefits from smoking including increased concentration, an added energy ‘boost’ mental ‘strength’ to deal with tough situations, curing boredom and relaxation.

These aspects can be condensed into two main beneficial areas of smoking. Firstly that, smoking is calming and relaxing, and secondly, it helps smokers concentrate and think clearly.

So on the Calming and Relaxing side – cigarettes take the stress out of life (relaxation) and help relive tension and stress. The benefits of smoking are to help smokers calm down and reduce anxiety and stress. When you visualise or think of relaxing what comes to your mind? It’s usually a slumping of the shoulders effect, that aaaaaahhhhhhhhh… slip into your arm chair and letting go feeling – you are relaxing.

On the Strength and Boost side – smoking is uplifting, helps with concentration, keeps smokers on their toes and gives them mental strength. The other benefit of smoking is that it lifts smokers up a level – their senses are awakened. When you visualise or think of yourself concentrating and being uplifted what comes to mind? Generally it’s a head up, on our feet, eyes open, chest out, shoulders back and an alert state of mind and effect – it gives you that I’m ready, let’s do it and let’s go feeling.

So cigarettes can have two effects – at times cigarettes can make you feel more relaxed and calmer – a general feeling of tranquillity or peacefulness. AND cigarettes can make you feel more confident, more capable, better equipped to deal with tough situations and they can give you increased concentration – a general energetic and empowered feeling.

But how is it that this same product or substance can do both of these things? Two different things that are complete opposites?

Smokers have been told, and believe that cigarettes not only help to lower stress levels but they also help to keep you on your toes – two completely different effects. Relaxation is a suppressing feeling while concentration is an uplifting feeling.

How can the same substance or product make the body feel up and raring to go and also make it relaxed and increase inner tranquillity?

The truth is that cigarettes can’t make or help smokers do both, or either – it’s impossible. You’ve also been told that cigarettes can cure boredom, help you enjoy your coffee and tea and meals and also sex more.

But again, how can cigarettes do all of these things? Yes nicotine does have a stimulating effect, (as it releases dopamine, the body’s natural pleasure drug, into the brain) but how the hell does it make you feel up, down and everything in between?

Basically we have been told that cigarettes can pretty much do whatever you want them to, depending on the circumstances surrounding you while you smoke. So if you need some mental energy or strength – have a cigarette and if you want to relax and forget about your problems then you should have a cigarette too! How can the same cigarette make you feel how you want to feel, depending on your choosing?

The truth is that despite nicotine releasing dopamine into the brain, all the other substances in a cigarette actually put a huge strain on your brain and body – they make you feel more tense, more anxious, more stressed and more on edge. No matter how much you argue against this it’s the cold hard truth!

Look at the undeniable stressful effects of smoking on you and your body below.

1. When carbon monoxide and nicotine enter your body they reduce the amount and supply of oxygen to your brain. Without this oxygen (the fuel of the brain), your brain struggles to function properly, think clearly and concentrate.

It is a fact that nicotine and carbon monoxide reduce oxygen levels in a smoker’s body and it is also a fact that the body needs oxygen to concentrate, not even the doctors and scientists can deny that!

Essentially oxygen is the basis of all activity in the body – any effort the body makes (from thinking to running), is harder with less oxygen. The carbon monoxide and nicotine in cigarettes prevent oxygen from reaching the brain and the other organs in the body – this simply cannot help you relax or concentrate. It’s impossible!

The nicotine may give you a little pick me up, but it and cigarettes simply cannot do all of the things that millions of smokers, just like you have been led to believe and continue telling yourself.

2. Nicotine is a vaso-constrictor – it shrinks your veins and arteries in size, meaning that your heart is forced to work harder to pump the same amount of blood around your body, but through a smaller space. Add to that, the fact that tar and the other chemicals in cigarettes are being deposited in your veins reducing blood flow even more.

The result is that your beats 35,000 times more per day than a non-smoker and your blood pressure is also ten to twenty points higher than it should be, under this added workload.

3. The effect that nicotine has on the insulin in your blood puts your body under constant stress. Every forty five minutes or so, when you smoke, the nicotine in your body blocks the release of insulin (this is the appetite suppressant effect).

Once this nicotine has worn off your insulin is re-released, and forty five minutes to an hour or two later you have another cigarette.

This stop start process puts a huge strain on your body – a non-smoker’s body will only reduce the flow of insulin when he really needs it – when he hasn’t eaten in a while. But smokers make their body’s stop-start this process twenty times more, or more a day than a non-smoker. This is an added stressful workload on your body.

4. The several thousand chemicals, poisons, toxins and carcinogens in a cigarette force the body into a state of shock.

When you inhale the smoke from a cigarette your body has to adapt to the presence of harmful chemicals. Each of which are deposited in your veins, lungs, heart, arteries and other organs in your body, then when you stop smoking for a few hours (e.g. at night) your body does it’s best to clear out the foreign substances.

You will also experience this process through a ‘smoker’s cough’ in the day and also in the morning, when yours body has had eight hours or so to start the cleansing process, and you cough up a lot of mucus.

Both of these attempts at cleaning out the toxins puts your body through a strenuous cleansing regime

process every time you stop smoking, every day of your smoking life. A non-smoker will only experience this cleansing process, as extensively as a smoker when he has a virus or infection or if they smoke a cigarette.

The truth is that smoking is only an ‘effective’ stress relief tool because you believe cigarettes and nicotine can help you. And that is the key – you believe.

It all comes back to what you think. Because you tell yourself that cigarettes calm you, you think they do. Because you tell yourself that they help you concentrate, you think they do (despite the fact that you are putting a huge strain on your system – your heart beats an extra 35,000 times per day due to the reduction in vein size making your blood pressure higher).

So even though cigarettes and nicotine are having a harmful and weakening effect on your body, which you have always known, you believe that they make you stronger and more capable of dealing with life. It is a clever trick that the tobacco companies have played on you!

They have shown you on films, on TV and in commercials that cigarettes help you concentrate, relive stress, beat problems, enjoy sex more and that they make men more manly and women more sexy.

You have to give them credit because it has worked and it is still working! But once you take a step back and look at the overall picture, you can see that advertising and your beliefs have led you to believe that you need cigarettes and nicotine, and that they bring you many benefits. When in fact that is all in your head!

But it can’t just be the placebo effect (believing that something will happen, makes it happen) that makes you concentrate and relax can it? The truth is no, but only to an extent.

So yes when you smoke you may feel slightly relaxed – this is down to the way you breathe when you smoke. Have you noticed any difference in the way you breathe when you smoke? Take a minute and put your fingers to your lips and pretend you are smoking, or better yet – light up a cigarette!

Have you noticed anything different in comparison to your normal breathing patterns? You should have noticed the two following patterns.

Firstly, your in-breath was much stronger when smoking. Try it again, inhale as if you were smoking a cigarette. This deeper in-breath sucks in a lot more air than normal breathing because you are sucking air in from the bottom of your stomach (your diaphragm). With this extra air also comes more oxygen – your brain and body’s fuel, up to 20% more oxygen in fact than when you breathe normally.

The second thing you should have noticed is the way you exhale. Your out-breath was also much stronger and deeper, when smoking. Try it again, breathe out deeply without cigarette smoke, do it several times.

How do you feel? You feel relaxed and calm don’t you! Exhaling feels good, especially when it is done strongly. Have you noticed that when you laugh and when you sigh you exhale and breathe out strongly? Breathing out has a calming and positive effect on the body. So even though the smoke puts a strain on your system, when you breathe out strongly you feel good.

So basically when you smoke you are just practicing deep breathing exercises. The deep breaths provide your body and organs with more oxygen, which helps you to relax and release stress to a degree. I say to a degree because that extra oxygen is not enough to compensate for the strain that the chemicals in a cigarette put on your body.

So smoking itself doesn’t actually reduce stress, or help you concentrate in any way – it’s the way you breathe that does that for you. Have you ever wondered why people tell you to take deep breaths when you feel a craving or withdrawal symptoms? It’s because the deep breathing mimics the way you breathe when you smoke.

Every time you have a cigarette you put your body under stress. Then your body tries to clean out the chemicals, which again makes you feel uncomfortable, and puts you under stress. And you do this every day going round and round in circles, no wonder you a re so stressed!

Then when your body realises it has extremely low blood sugar (no nicotine to block insulin which releases your sugar stores) you get pangs and cravings because your body needs sugar – it becomes stressed. You then have a cigarette to relieve that stress. Then after forty five minutes or so the process starts all over again! You are just going around in one huge destructive and pointless circle.

People say smoking reduces stress, when in fact – the stress is caused by the last cigarette – when nicotine and the chemicals enter your body you put it under a huge strain. Then when the nicotine leaves your body it becomes stressed – because there is no nicotine to release sugar into the blood.

Tobacco increases stress and then relieves it (artificially by playing with your blood sugar levels) when you smoke. So smoking is basically like hitting yourself over the head with a hammer because it feels really good when you stop!

A major reason why people say they can’t or won’t stop smoking is – they feel they would be giving up a very effective stress management technique. But once you stop smoking for a short period of time, you will become calmer, even under stress, than when you were a smoker.

Another smoking myths is that it ‘cures boredom.’ This argument is so pointless that it hardly merits much attention. Yes some people believe that it cures boredom, but so does banging your head against a wall and stabbing yourself with a fork. That doesn’t mean it’s either good for you, effective, productive or an adequate way to deal with the situation.

Again if you rely on cigarettes to cure boredom, all you are doing is telling yourself – ‘I am not good enough to deal with this situation on my own. My cigarettes will take care of it.’

If you smoke due to boredom, you need to pay particular attention to changing your habits so that you have adequate new methods to keep yourself entertained.

Smoking as a stress relief mechanism is just and excuse. Many smokers know this but continue to lie to themselves because it prevents them from admitting that they cannot stop smoking.

Finding new ways to deal with stress is essential if you are going to make your stop smoking attempt a success.

How Long Will It Take to Recover From Traction Alopecia?

People who suffer from traction alopecia or other forms of hair loss commonly want to know how long the recovery time is until their hair begins to grow. Traction alopecia is different from other forms of alopecia as it is brought on by physical actions placing tension on hair follicles. In other words, you develop traction alopecia after you have pulled your hair constantly.

The pulling is commonly a result of a hair styling process or routine. Additionally, hair extensions have also been known to cause traction alopecia and those women who often wear extensions are at the highest risk of developing the condition.

Hair loss caused by traction alopecia generally begins at the front hair line, but can also occur at the crown of the head or in the form of generalized thinning of the hair. Much like other hair loss forms this condition can cause the sufferer to have a reduced lack of self confidence. The hair loss in other assorted areas of the head can significantly reduce the number of hair styles that can be used; thus creating more stress.

The good news is that you can re-grow the hair you lose from traction alopecia. However, before choosing surgery as the treatment plan, it is suggested that you first allow your hair a chance to grow back naturally. The process will certainly require patience, time, and caring for your hair but the end results will be well worth the effort. Traction alopecia recovery times can range from just a couple months to years. Recovery time will directly depend on the degree of damage caused and the length of time the abuse lasted for.

Whether you like it or not, during traction alopecia recovery times you will have to avoid the hair styles that caused the damage in the first place. Regardless how many articles you read that claim extensions or braids are okay as long as they are not tight on the scalp, don’t listen to this advice. The weight alone from the additional hair will cause additional stress to hair shafts that are already weak and aggravate follicles that are already sore. Hair extensions and braids that are fitted can lead to scalp inflammation. The inflammation alone symbolizes the scalp is stressed. So, it is in your best bet to avoid all activities that further stress the hair follicles and scalp. However, there are a couple things you can do to speed your scalp’s healing process up.

First, you need to halt the application of damaging chemicals such as colorants and relaxers. For example, relaxers are used to permanently straighten hair that is naturally curly. The chief reason hair is curly is due to the keratin products that make up the hair contain amino acids referred to as cysteines. The cysteines link each other by disulfide bonds as two sulfur atoms connect to each other. The more disulfide bonds contained in the hair, the curlier the hair will be.

Relaxers simply go in and dissolve the disulfide bonds and cap them so they cannot reform chemically. Commonly, relaxers use a base or reducer like lye (sodium hydroxide) to break up and cap the bonds. Sodium hydroxide in itself is a very strong chemical that can damage your hair or burn your skin. Even if a commercial relaxer is considered safer and gentler, they still use the same chemical reaction to break the disulfide bonds and cap them. When a scalp is affected by traction alopecia, it contains follicles that are damaged and may be inflamed already. Applying a relaxer to a scalp like this will only further aggravate the situation as it will burn and irritate skin exposed from missing patches of hair; thus prolonging your recovery time. You are not recommended to relax your hair until it completely grows out again.

Nutrition and diet play important roles in recovery as well. Eating foods rich in proteins, vitamins, and minerals such as fruits and vegetables will also help start the biological healing process. It may also be in your best interest to begin taking supplements to make sure you are receiving nutrients essential for hair growth. You can always choose a supplement specifically for hair growth. Many of the vitamins made specifically for hair contain 200mg of Biotin and other nutrients such as magnesium, iron, zinc, and selenium. In particular, biotin is great for increasing the length of time your hair remains in the growth phase which will also keep your follicles actively producing hair.

Protein, however, should be of the utmost importance to you. In fact, lean sources of protein almost always contain vitamins essential for hair growth. However, most importantly your hair is created for protein which makes it essential for the production of keratin. Easy ways of increasing protein intake is by consuming protein cookies, shakes, and bars.

In conclusion, to reduce the recovery time for traction alopecia you should begin by quitting the hair styles that stress your hair follicles out the most; you only want to wear hair styles that do not apply any tension at all to your hair. Additionally, refrain from applying chemical relaxers and colorants to your hair. Finally, make sure your hair follicles are being nourished from inside the body by consuming proper amounts of vitamins, minerals, and protein. If you cannot consume these essential items naturally, then you should begin a supplement regimen that offers them for you.
