How Globalization Is Affecting Accounting in the US

Globalization has led to most countries following and teaching principles of IFRS. United States based companies follow the rules of GAAP which causes complications for United States companies that want to do business internationally. Both practices of accounting provided useful and accurate interpretations of a company's financial situation. However, comparing a financial statement that was made following GAAP to a statement that follows IFRS could lead to meaningfulful discrepancies.

The United States uses GAAP or Generally Accepted Accounting Principles for financial reporting. GAAP are rules that must be followed on financial statements and only are acceptable within the US. Unlike GAAP, IFRS or International Financial Reporting Standards is principal based. This means when business transactions occur GAAP must follow a certain progress of steps to record it. Whereas IFRS is able to interpret the transaction is a few different ways. Another difference with IFRS being principle based on GAAP rules is based on you can not find a loophole in a principle as easily as you could a rule. Since principles are vaguer than a specific rule it covers more potential threats to unfaithful reporting. An example of this would be historical cost used in GAAP versus the "real value" used by IFRS for fixed assets. Historical cost used the price paid for the asset while "real value" uses the estimated value of the asset today. "Real value" is extremely useful for companies who invest in something for its future economic benefit.

Another United States companies face is double accounting work. For reporting and auditing financial information United States companies are required to us GAPP which is useful when comparing financial statement to other US based companies or internally within the business for management. However for international reporting, and in more than 110 countries, International Financial Reporting Standards is used. (Bannister) The double accounting work is intensive as well. An example would be IFRS not recognizing LIFO as an acceptable inventory system. If the cost of a product is increasing, using LIFO saves a company money because a higher cost against gross income results in less taxable income. If a company using LIFO needed to report internationally now, any financial statement involving income inventory would have to be reevaluated to satisfy IFRS. (Intuit Team) This double accounting causes an additional disadvantage other than just doing more work for United States accountants as well.

Accountants who studied in the United States are taught how to satisfy GAAP when doing financial reporting and the CPA exam certify them to do that. They are not even taught to satisfy IFRS principles, so they may not be preparing the best IFRS-satisfying financial statements. This is bad for the company reporting the information because it may not be the best reporting it could have for the company. It is also detrimental to all United States taught accountants. In an ever globalizing world economy, accountants taught to satisfies only one countries accounting rules is less valuable than an accounting who can satisfy accounting principals in over 100 countries.

Choosing the Right Domain Names and Reseller Web Hosting

It is no secret that people turn to the web for products and services. Therefore, having a well optimized website is essential. However, it all begins with choosing from among the best domain names, which is crucial if you want to run a successful website. You will find a host of names available at a domain reseller.

The importance of domain names

The domain name needs to be short, catchy and easy to remember. Most importantly, it should represent your business. You can always use a domain checker for appropriate names before you go ahead with domain registration. This will ensure that potential customers can identify with your product and help you build a brand image. Use the right keyword so that your website gets to the top of search engine results. In addition, make sure to use a distinctive name with the help of a domain creator. A popular trend is to combine words into a new name.

The name should also be easy to say rather than have to spell it out for people. Domain registration is the next step once you pick a name from a domain reseller. Make sure to provide a valid email address to your domain registrar. This will help take care of any issues including expiry and renewal.

Get help building your website

Once you have your domain name taken care of its time to launch your website. If you haven’t created one as yet, you can use a website builder and create a site within a few hours. You will also find a mobile website creator to help you launch a well optimized website for the small screen. The next big step is web hosting. Your website needs to be launched live on a server. There are many companies that offer reseller web hosting services at affordable prices.

Choose the right web hosting service

Choosing the right hosting reseller can spell the difference between success and failure of your website. In today’s competitive world, most businesses cannot afford even a few minutes of downtime. This makes choosing a reliable reseller web hosting service mission critical. The first thing to consider before you go ahead and sign up for a web hosting package. Determine the kind of support you require. If your website needs to be up and running without any glitches look for a provider that offers around the clock support. The provider must offer adequate backup with regular automatic backup facilities. Don’t register until you are aware of your host’s disaster recovery plan.

It is always recommended to shop for a reseller web hosting service that gives you an uptime guarantee. You won’t want your customers to experience a blank screen or abandon their shopping cart because of downtime. Make sure the server has multiple backup locations so that you can always switch to another server is one is not available. To save money and time, look for a web hosting provider that offers scalable solutions so you can upgrade or downgrade according to your needs. You will want to evaluate the amount of bandwidth available and how your hosting reseller can deal with unexpected surges in traffic that can eat into available bandwidth.

Frontal Lobes – (Dys) functions When They Suffer an Injury

Of the hundreds of billions of neurons and the lobes of the brain they make up, arguably the most important ones compose the frontal lobes. These lobes are where the majority of higher-level thought and decision making takes place. However, when this part of the brain sustains injury, a number of other functions can be affected.

Frontal Lobe Functions

  • Judgment
  • Consciousness
  • Initiation
  • Emotional response
  • Expressive language
  • Word associations
  • Motor memory

While survivors of a brain injury (BI) may not display signs of problems in the above-listed areas, these are problems which exist for the most part only when there is damage to the frontal lobes. Like planning complex movements, theability to plan a sequence of complex movements needed to complete multi-stepped tasks, such as making coffee (Sequencing), and loss of spontaneity in interacting with others including loss of flexibility in thinking. Additionally, the tendency to perseverate, or keep the same thought rolling over in your head is substantial.

I was talking to a doctor today, and she said, "Did you realize that you are not really flexible in your thinking?" Well, yeah, I told her, I'm bad about perseverating, too. She agreed with me, we laughed and she said " Really, you have a problem being flexible." I asked her to clarify what she mean, and she said that once I get going with a thought, even though I think I should not say XYZ, that I just get going and can not keep myself from "going there."

She was right. Sometimes it's like I get going down a hill, and just can not stop myself. It's like the brakes do not work in my car going down Monteagle Mountain. Just like there are different areas which are affected with each BI, there are dozens-if not hundreds-of ways the survivor can be affected.

Impaired justice is a major problem for many survivors of TBI: knowing what to say and what not to say. It can even translate into other areas of survivors' lives like behaviors.

Consciousness is another area in which problems can occur when someone injures the frontal lobes. I do not just mean remaining conscious, but rather being aware of their surroundings. Often survivors do not know where they are if they go to the store, and many have difficulty remembering what day it is. These are all due to a problem with consciousness.

The third area which can become problematic for BI survivors is initiation . When there is an issue with this, the survivor may have difficulty doing even the simplest things, like making lunch or deciding on a book to read. I'm not saying that we all do not have days like that, but for the BI survivor with a problem in this area, signals and symptoms are more prevalent.

The next area of ​​concern is emotional response . How the survivor deals with disappointment, pleasure, or even being told something as unexciting as what time it is, is displayed when there is a problem with emotional response. The survivor may laugh at inappropriat times or cry when a compliment is given.

The next problem which TBI can cause is with expressive language . Although being dead-pan can be appropriate and even funny at times, for a survivor with this affliction, life is no laughing matter. The survivor has difficulty knowing how to include inclection into his voice, so that "The house is on fire" sounds the same as "I'm bored." When I was early on in my recovery, the nurses in my neuro-rehab unit teased me by saying things like "I just won a million dollars" with little or no intonation while they would use gredat inflection when relishing something mundane.

When the survivor has difficulty with word associations , often he uses the wrong word for everyday objects. Like saying door for window or calling a trashcan an umbrella. The problem lies in the ability to recall words with the appropriate meaning attached to them.

Finally, BI survivors have difficulty with motor memory . This means that their muscles do not function in quite the same ways as they did before the injury. For example, my left foot acts as though it does not know where it's going as I lift it to step forward. Not my whole leg, but just my foot tends to "flop" and make a curve while in the air. Another example is swallowing. For those survivors with problems with motor memory, the act of swallowing – having the epiglottis close while liquids move into the esophagus – can prove to be most challenging.

The above listed areas are signs and symptoms of having some sort of frontal lobe damage. For the most part, when a BI survivor has difficulty in one of these areas, there are difficulties in other areas as well.

Over-The-Road Independent Truck Driver Segment – Signage Strategies Considered

Most of those running truck stops and truck washes have considered the rough economy and hardship of the American Trucker, including future challenges with higher fuel costs due to oil inventories and anticipated seasonal diesel fuel price spikes coinciding with increased freight as economy recovers (or double dip ). It was noted that the new Independent owner operators are more likely to go to a Truck Wash due to the "Hand Washing" methods, as this is of extreme value to this segment.

To attract more of this choice market and full-paying customer it was noted that better signage for trucks approaching from either direction 25 miles out with a reminder at five miles left for the truck wash made sense. One recent truck washing manager recommended a trailer with signage parked adjacent to the freeway made sense.

Ask yourself; are some buildings on the frontage outside of town that are blank block walls and sometimes, their owners might be enticed to some signage. Maybe contact the state DOT to find out about privately owned billboard rules that your Truck Wash could use and then contact freeway frontage property owners about signage on their land. It should be noted that high winds at certain times of the year would mean signage would need to be robust and maintained regularly, sometimes inspected weekly?

Many truck washes paint their roof a very unusual color so it becomes extremely visible from the freeway many miles out, reminding frequenting truck drivers on that highway or freeway where they are. One dayoping they will stop, and then killing them with great service and a first class truck wash. Some truck washes a $ 10 discount each time if you allow them to put on their mud-flaps on the back of your trailer, this can be a good deal for both the truck wash and the independent driver trying to squeeze out a little more profit and lower costs.

Your truck wash should have signage visible to all trucks pulling out of nearby truck stops, it only costs a little to put a sign across the street from a truck stop, usually they are located where the land is cheap enough. Do not be shy when it comes to sign for your truck wash. You may think you are being a "signage whore" said one marketing consultant recently in Transport Topics, but what the heck, you need to increase volume and good signage is probably the easiest way to do just that.

Depression: Hiding Behind the Facade

When suffering with severe clinical depression through my youth I became accustomed to hiding my feelings, my sadness and extremely myself from the world. I built up a façade to protect myself from being hurt anymore, and at the time, I had no idea that I was not doing myself any favors by reacting this way.

The face (or face) that I hid behind was one which to any onlooker made me look as though I was actually high on life. Anyone trying to understand me would have presumed I was a normal everyday person. I laughed, I smiled, I joked and I generally made it appear that I was OK. Fact was this was far from the reality of the situation.

If I sat and asked now, as a recovered patient why I did this I would honestly answer that my reason for doing so was because it was the only way I knew how to survive. Pretending everything was OK in my family was something that I was expected to do by my parents. In turn, this promoted other detrimental behavioral issues, my façade being one of them.

As humans, we naturally have a built in mechanism wherey our response is that of one where we respond with flight or fight. My mechanism for coping was one which meant I was on edge constantly, waiting for someone to pose; in turn this made me defensive and aggressive, especially towards anyone who may have criticized me and this was because I did not want them to tell me something I did not know about myself.

I did not want anyone guessing what was wrong, telling me what was wrong or acting superior in knowledge toward me. I figured only I knew me before I knew best and as such I would deal with my issues in my own time and my own way. All the time adding layers to the façade I was hiding behind.

Sometimes, when I went thought counseling and therapy and then hospitalization and I was faced with the question, who am I? I was not able to answer it. I had built up a pretending person and was living a pretended life in pret circumstances with pretended outcomes.

Finding out who I really was made a massive part of the healing process that I underwent to become depression free. As such, I would suggest to anyone suffering with depression – patient to patient, stop with the façade, it is OK to get help, advice and support, you do not have to prepare to be OK if you really are not there there are people who understand and who are there to help. Without these people, I know I would not be who I am today.

How to Repair Soldering on LCD Monitor Problems in Easy Way

Last month, I had received approximate 2 ~ 5 nos of faulty lcd monitors everyday from customers lived in a residential area occupied by 20000 people. I have never got such a good harvest indeed. How much wages do I get from the repair only? Unbelievable! It is $ 6400 roughly which calculates from average $ 80 x 80 nos lcd monitor.

I can tell you that approximately 40 percent of total faulty monitors are easy to be repaired normally and the rest is a bit time consuming but it is worth to perform electronic component analysis, testing and replacement. Once you got the culprit, you sold it out and replace the new part and solder it back on the circuit board.

One of the most important and essential techniques in servicing lcd monitor is the SOLDERING technique which will bring you fast dollars easily and quickly. I believe most repairers will agree with me.

Let take few real soldering examples as follows:

Case 1: Compaq FP731 shutdown from few seconds to few minutes

Solution 1: Re-sold the feedback circuit of the ccfl inverter section C215, C216, D201, D204, R215, R246, R218, D206, C242, D210, R234, R243

Case 2: BenQ T705 got display shutdown after power on for few second

Solution 2: Solder out 4 nos. shorted C5707 transistors and solder new transistors back.

Case 3: Dell e151fp (equivalent to Acer FP553 Chassis) No power or power on then shutdown shortly

Solution 3: Solder out the faulty C605, C707, C703 capacitor, the faulty power ic UC3842B, faulty resistors R613, R623, R615, faulty transistor Q601, faulty diode D604 = 1N4148 and fuse F601. Solder the new parts back into the circuit.

From above examples, no matter how severe fault level of lcd monitor, the soldering work is always involved in repairing lcd monitor. You can find the following articles explain the basic soldering to advance soldering technique of the surface mounted devices (SMD) on our website.

1) Tools for soldering

2) Soldering safety and health

3) Photos for soldering dry joints on circuit boards

4) Basic soldering technique

5) Advanced Smd soldering technique

6) Quick and inexpensive soldering station

Once you master the soldering skill, you can apply this useful skill to fix the fault electronic component on any circuit boards. Start practice and practice make perfect.

Ten Factors That Can Make Your Penis Smaller – Learn How To Prevent It From Happening to You!

There are many factors that can cause a man to have a small penis. Some factors can’t be helped, while some factors can be prevented. Here’s a list of some factors that can decrease penis size:

1) Circumcision – Circumcision is a big cause of a smaller penis. The reason for this is that when the foreskin is removed from the penis, it usually leads to scarring. Skin and penile tissue that has been scarred will be less elastic and will typically “shrink” up (and get smaller) when a scar is formed. Some estimates are that men who are circumcised lose an average of 5% of their penile length. Strangely enough, the companies and industries that profit from circumcision state that there is no scarring nor loss of penis length when a man’s penis is circumcised.

2) Scarring Due to Injury or Burns – Getting your manhood caught in your zipper, excessive masturbation, and other injuries can also make the penis smaller. Because of the sensitive nature of the penile tissues and skin, they can be easily injured. I had a friend who stepped on his dog’s tail in the dead of night. The dog jumped up, clenched down on his penis, and bit into it. After a trip to the hospital (no stitches), and once he healed up, what was the result? His penis was shorter in length and the area that was injured resulted in a scarred depression in this area of his penis.

We mentioned masturbation already, and it’s something to definitely keep in mind. Excessive masturbation, especially when a man is young and masturbating over aggressively, can damage the skin and other penile tissues. If this happens, stop masturbating and let your penis heal 110%. This type of scarring, too, can make your penis smaller.

Burns, as one can imagine, can make your penis smaller, too, and they are more common than most people realize. The most frequent cause is usually from scalding liquid being accidentally poured onto the penis. So, guys, if you like to cook, don’t do it in your boxers.

3) Low Testosterone or Growth Hormone – Low levels of testosterone while the male is still in the fetal stages can result in a smaller penis. In fact, it is one of the causes of micro-penis. When puberty rolls around, the same effect can happen if low-testosterone levels are present.

4) Hormones – Exposure to the wrong hormones can also greatly impact the size of a man’s penis. Such hormones can impede its growth (if the child is exposed) and can also make the penis grow smaller in an adult man, if he is exposed.

5) Smoking – Smoking destroys the fine capillary-bulb networks in your body, especially in your distal extremities and your penis. If you smoke, it’s wise to stop, as it will have an effect on your penis size and your ability to create and maintain an erection.

6) Genetics – Your DNA is the template for the size of your penis. If your genetic code dictates a bit smaller penis, then it’s your genes which may be the culprit.

7) Fetal Exposure to Chemicals – Many pesticides, chemicals, pollutants, and even poor diet can impede proper penis size. Especially if the mother is exposed to such chemicals while she is carrying the male fetus. Infants exposed to certain chemicals can also alter normal penis growth.

8) Radiation Exposure – Some scientists believe that exposure to excessive amounts of radiation, in the penile region of the male child or infant, can hamper penis growth. In the adult male, excessive radiation exposure can make the penis shrink in size and impede its function, too.

9) Penile Trauma – Penis fracturing and penile valve prolapse can be causes of a decrease in penis size and function.

10) The Angry Wife or Girlfriend – Most people have heard the tale of John and Lorena Bobbitt. To provide a short recap, she cut his penis in half with a knife. It was surgically reattached but his penile size was reduced from the trauma.

So, men, take care of your penis to ensure that you don’t lose any “inches.” Of course, also take steps to ensure that no one else does it for you.

How to Tile Around Light-Switches and Sockets

Tiling is not as straight forward as you think. Yes, the majority of your wall or floor tiles may be put down very easily, but then there are those fiddly corners and shapes to contend with.

But do not worry; there are methods to use in order to successfully tile your wall, no matter how many fiddly bits you have.

The main culprits are sockets and light-switches, which can prove to be a real nightmare if they are not considered in advance, or if you are new to tiling. The best thing to do is to start by tiling as close to the socket or light switch as possible. Turn off the power supply and unscrew the socket or switch enough so that you can get the tile with adhesive behind it.

For each tile that is affected, you need to draw yourself a template on card. Cut it out and leave 5mm extra which will lie behind the switch or socket. Then it's time to cut your ceramic tiles or porcelain tiles.

There are several ways in which you can do this. You can use a hand tile saw or you can use an electric tile saw. If you want to use an electric jigsaw then you will need to buy a tile cutting blade to allow you to complete the job.

So it's not all simple squares that fit together like a jigsaw; but adopt the right method and you can make even the fiddly bits a walk in the park.

How to Make Your Own Biltong at Home

Biltong is a traditional South African recipe which was adapted by many countries due to its nutrients and taste. Although many think it's similar to the Australian beef jerky, the truth is they're different especially in the manner of preparation and taste.

Although there are many people who buy biltong in supermarkets or online, there are still those who prefer to make their own biltong at home so that they can customize it according to their preferred taste. They also love to experiment with different ingredients and add spices into their own recipe.

It's very easy to make biltong so if you're one of those who consider making your own, here are the steps to bear in mind:

1. Prepare
The first thing to do is prepare. Buy the beef and other ingredients you need. Fresh beef is available in many supermarkets. If possible, go for the silverside which is meatier and more flavorful. After which, cut the beef with the grain to approximately half an inch thick and six inches long.

2. Marinade
The key to making delicious biltong is in the ingredients. For traditional South African biltong, you may only use apple cider vinegar, rock salt, and coarsely ground coriander and black pepper. First, get a strip of beef and sprinkle it with rock salt on both sides then set aside for an hour. Remember that the longer you marinade the beef, the saltier it becomes.

3. Flavor
Remove the excess salt from the beef. Place your vinegar in a bowl. Hold the beef up with one hand and using a brush, apply vinegar. Allow the excess vinegar to drip off to prevent your biltong from being too sour. Then brush both side with pepper and coriander.

4. Dry
There are two easy ways on how to dry biltong. First, you may look for a cool dry place where you can hang it up and let a fan blow on it until it completely dries. This is very tricky because if there's too much humidity in the air it can spoil the beef. Another method is by making your own biltong box made of cardboard or wood for drying. The box must be completely sealed with holes on the sides to allow air to circulate freely. Put a 60-watt light bulb at the bottom of the box. The heat emitting from the bulb will dry the beef in four days.

5. Serve
Once your biltong is discharged you may now eat it. Many love to take biltong on camping trips since they'll last for days. You may eat it raw or add it to your other recipes like pasta and muffins.
It's so easy to make your own biltong at home. Although you can buy biltong almost anywhere it is more rewarding to make it yourself.

BRAIN ILLUMINATION – The Monkey Mind VS the Mind of Light

We have just collectively stepped beyond the threshold of the Divine Doorways of illumination. What we do now is all up to you, but the question remaining is;

Whom do you TRUST ?

Which MIND are you aligned with?

As the acceleration continues many souls have reached a point of how do I continue healing my self, family and others? How do we gain a higher resonances and change of perception as many have been brought to their knees – reaching that fine line between insanity and stillness. How does one continue to easily and effortlessly transform the inner tsunami, struggling over the ruler ship of our MINDS?

Sai Baba – the Cosmic Christ Avatar once said:

' the mind can create bondage or the mind can create liberty '

These last few weeks have tested every ones patience, strength, fortitude and authenticity. We have all experienced those moments lost in continuous thoughts drowning in a sea of ​​despair and doubt, but have also risen in ecstasy with creative inspiration of new ideas birthed into reality. So in honoring our mental monkey mind to becoming a Mind of Light receptive to Divine Intelligence and allowing the infinite possibilities, undiscovered horizons yet to explore we must delve into the FEAR MATRIX of the Collective Consciousnesses. By releasing these old, worn out repressed emotional webs created from our past, ancestors, patterns and structures that have left us paralysed in contemplation for too long.

With the accelerated unfolding transformation we many have been frustrated with it not being fun anymore experiencing explosive anger suppressed for years, aeon's actually in control fear based program coercing us to go within our masculine selves this time to face the pain of the infested past. This allowed many to bear witness to these unspoken shadows of grief, bitterness and remorse, resulting in chronic headaches, sore / dry throats, endless coughing, sleepless nights and frustration.

What may have been overlooked is that this was that perfect opportunity to release / tear up the old contracts of the infectious deep isolated wounds of self-abuse torturing our emotions by leaving us paralysed in ICE-olation. By gathering courage to face these inner demons – which in fact are just an illusion – we recall that dynamic moment in time, that A-HA moment! When full realization hits to create our realities it all begins with the mind – what we think will be magnetize into our sphere – we need to become more cognitive of our thoughts and expressions – become more vigilant. Recognizing when a time out is needed, energetically clear out our homes and sanctuaries, a healing sessions, massage, meditation, an ascension walk in the woods, reconnecting with our selves, a few days away with our partners, expressing ourselves creatively, taking a workshop, playing with our children and animals, letting freedom rein. Our heart begins to beat entrained to the Earth's and the cosmos, throbbing with joy as we build a fresh new foundation gaining strength and momentum, as each magical step unfolds before our very eyes. Understanding now that all is in divine order, that our journey deep into the Shadow is really wisdom transforming bringing illumination to the past illusions of darkness to ignite the passion of heaven.

Over the past few weeks many have been experiencing what we call ' Ascension Symptoms ' or ' healing crisis ' of the energy flu, inflammation, dizziness, unexplained aches and pains, discharging old reactions as the body detoxes from the tension and stress held hostage for years. Breathing again and learning how to simply experience and observe with child like wonder – to just BE – moving on without judgment, shame, fear, escapism, attachment, denial, anger, continuing the pity game preferring to play victim or avoidance in repeating itself.

But a true passing of sorts, filling these old outworn patterns with LOVE to be passionately re-born as the Phoenix rising out of the ashes. Allowing the accelerated energy to continue flushing our bodies and cellular memory at the sub atomic particle levels – spinning our DNA faster, releasing old stagnate energy. Become more flexible, fluid, energized and vital. 2011 truly was the year of TRANSCENDCE . An initiatory gateway; a time of necessary upheavals that will reveal the gift of emergence – the Rainbow Warrior. As we continue to build our bodies of light, synthesizing the light in a dynamic balancing to birth the new human – Homo Luminance's, weaving the sparks of shimmering mists for our new webs of creation.

Recognizing and embracing new truths: that we are the MASTERPIECES , the MUSES, the fully realized master self. Igniting infinite possibilities within.

"I AM the darkness that is the LIGHT and the STILLNESS that is the DANCING" . -TS Elliote

Why not instead, dare to be the WILD CARD ! Throw out those old scripts of drama, in fact tear it up and burn it! Surrendering time and for all the pain of separation, mayhem, survival, poverty, the shame of being, unworthiness with fears of being unlovable and lonely. BE THE CHANGE! Dare risking it all by writing a magnificent new script reading moment to moment, truly embracing living in the essence of Divine FLOW enjoying the enchantment of the moment, believing and using your own magic and powers of creation to create a harmonious and magical life. Allowing the full realization of our true divinity to surface, conquering our self-imposed limitations to actualize our Diamond Alignment of Divine Bliss, living in orgasmic ecstasy fully awakened and alive … that's right RAPTURE!

RAPTURE CONTD

In the days leading up to this Hoodwinked event, I was amazed by the insanity of the repeated end of the world scenarios constantly being playing over and over again to instill fear of an impending disaster of catastrophic proportions – creating a tear in the energy fields of our auras, an almost Astral Invasion of the dark side of the lower ego leaving these scary images to replay in which ever imagination allowed it to imprint – purposefully shocking you to throw you out of sync within your center. (Remember that at the root of this energy, it still is SOURCE). When in fact it was a Cosmic explosion of harmonic balancing of the divine ecstasy, joy and bliss.

The Alchemical Marriage of the Divine Pole shift of blending, merging and integrating together in the Sacred Sexual Cosmic Union of our inner masculine and feminine selves awakening a higher resonance of our Divinity – providing brain illumination, activating our pituitary glands to unaware the ancient wisdom of ETERNAL LIFE , illuminating the Universal Designed Truths no longer held in secrecy. Assisting humanity with elevating the soul as Ascension is actually the Dissension of Spirit into Matter awakening personal power through awareness while embracing the shadow wounds of the past making the new harmonic octaves of Heaven on Earth fully realized. Knowing creation to attract our other half – the psychological aspects of the Twin Flame, the God / Goddess within to experience the RAPTURE in the ONEness Union of the Great Cosmic Orgasm of the Ecstasy Blueprint Codes giving birth to the Divine Child – or otherwise known as The Holy Trinity. Notice that the numerology of the day of RAPTURE was also in fact a 3 – Trinity! Once again leaving us to marvel with fascination at the ancient laws of the Hermetic Principle: so above, so below, so within so without.

This form of Sacred Union is still known from the ancient circles of the High Priest / Priestess Orders, in fact anyone honoring the Goddess is fully aware of this phenomena today, as the Arc of Light is ignited, strengthening ones KA body, experiencing radiant health , energy and a luminescence aura with a golden halo. Uncovering why one of the greatest stories ever shrouded in secrety about Jesus and "The Holy Grail ", his marriage and love for Mary Magdalena – who was also a very high initiate known as a Sex Priestess in the High Order of the Isis in Egypt, a very revered position but branded a prostitute by society – was hidden in plain sight.

The comical part being that in some parts of the world, Rapture is also known as Little Death giving us greater awareness to just why fear was so instilled in the collective consciousness – to keep you from the realization of your true Divinity & Power – your Sacred Cosmic Key in communion with the Universe – The Divine Mind. Practicing even for a few minutes a day to quiet, silence the mind and to just BE an inner strength unfolds trusting that all will be revealed at the exact moment.Through the rising of the inner sun, the eternal now is born where the dreamer now longer just dreams, but is fully awakened.

"Those who look outward – DREAM
those who look inward – AWAKEN "

– Carl Jung

From my heart to your heart and to the heart of all creation, wishing you all magical days and nights filled with divine cosmic ecstasy.

The Different Styles of Wedding Photography

Your wedding day is one of the major milestones of your life. With all the money you spend on that perfect dress, your beautiful flowers, your romantic venue and the many other things that go together to create your perfect day, you want your memories recorded to reflect your personality and style.

Different photographers shoot in different styles and it is important to cut through the sales pitch and the fancy jargon to find one that can help you match the vision for your wedding photographs.

I have outlined the 3 main styles of wedding photography available today, although in many cases it is possible for a photographer to shoot in more than one style.

Traditional wedding photography

Traditional or sometimes sometimes called classical wedding photography captures the traditional wedding day pictures including the unforgivable moments of your wedding day including the exchange of rings, signing the marriage register, walking down the aisle as husband and wife, family groups and the cutting of the cake to name a few.

Weddings are still considered formal occasions and this type of wedding photography has stood the test of time. With careful lighting and expert posing traditional wedding photography creates a perfect record of your family gathering. A good photographer will be able to work quickly and be able to put people at ease to ensure the placing does not look uncomfortable.

These are the type of shots Mum and Granny expect to see from the wedding photos and can often be found on display in homes on the wall or mantelpiece.

Traditional wedding photography has sometimes had a bad reputation caused by bossy or grumpy photographers or photographers taking ages to complete endless group shots with the bride and groom ending up spending more time in front of a camera and less time with their guests enjoying their wedding day.

Reportage wedding photography

Reportage, sometimes called Photojournalistic wedding photography, means literally "to report". The photographer blends into the background and photographs events as they happen and you often do not even realize photographs are being taken.

This style of photography really is the hardest to perfect. It takes many years of experience and lighting fast reactions to expertly capture a wedding in this style.

This style is not to be confused with well executed traditional photography where the skill of the photographer makes the photograph look natural and not posed.

The growth of Reportage wedding photography appears to have coincided with the growth of digital photography due to the low expenses per photograph that reportage style of photograph motives on. Unfortunately, many new or inexperienced wedding photographers use the "shot gun" approach shooting thousands of pictures during the wedding day in the hope that they capture a few good shots.

A word of warning: If you choose a photographer who shoots exclusively in this style many couples regret not having some traditional photographs in their album. With reportage wedding photography you are relying on the photographers interpretation of your day. The couples parents are usually the first to complain about the lack of traditional images in your album.

Contemporary wedding photography

Contemporary, sometimes called Avant Garde wedding photography can mean many different things to different people. By definition, to be contemporary the style is constantly changing which could mean the images date very quickly.

Contemporary wedding photography can involve unusual or "off the wall" ideas and use strange camera angles. This style of photography brings more of the photographers personality into the photograph together with the artistic vision or individual style of the photographer. Although this style of photography may be less popular, when properly made the results can be fantastic and your wedding album will be unique.

Many wedding photographers use contemporary style images in professional photography awards and you will often see this style featured in glossy wedding magazines.

The downside of this style of wedding photography is that it does not really provide a true record of your wedding day. You might be disappointed if your albums end up like an art exhibition.

Conclusion

Once you have set the date and booked your venue start visiting photographers and have a look at their work. Be sure to ask to see completed wedding albums as presented to their past clients as this will give you a better idea of ​​their overall style. Does their style fit your requirements?

I hope this little article helps you find the photographer who will record your special day exactly as you wish.

Online Home Based Business and Working With Your Spouse

Getting involved in an online business with your spouse should be easy. You have already got a relationship built on trust, you probably communicate well and you both probably have similar drive and commitment to succeed as work at home entrepreneurs.

With both of you being at home the daily tasks of washing clothes and cleaning the house can be shared and work time set while while one looks after the children. The home based business should flourish in this climate. What if it does not though?

You have to set you boundaries early in the peace. You have to plan and talk before you even start. Here are three considerations along these lines:

1. Clarify both of your expectations:

You need to do this for the business, the children, the housework and the other tasks that make your world go around. If you do not then there is a possibility that there will be frustrations from one or both sides. Remember that you are planning to be in the same house for all of the time.

As romantic as this may sound it can often end up with small bits of office equipment becoming dangerous projectiles and aimed at various parts of your body.

Having a roster helps with housework and other tasks around the home. The last thing that you want is for this mundane menial stuff to be the thing that breaks your focus and concentration on your business goals.

2. Acknowledge each others skills and way of doing things.

Chances are that both of you have developed different ways of being organized and different levels of disorganization that you can put up with around your work space. This is fine as long as you can both accept this of the other person. You do not want one side of the corporation cleaning up for the other in the time that they should be focused on their business tasks.

Other skills that you may have both acquainted to need to be acknowledged too and if you can identify some of the areas where you are both individual experts then a knowledge development plan can help you plan how to teach each other your different skills.

It may also come to pass that one of you is focused on the computer generating leads for the list while the other prefers the people contact and talking to people about their conflicts and aspirations in their own home based business. There is nothing wrong with this so long as both partners acknowledge the importance of both tasks for the overall health of your online business venture.

3.Plan to be together sometimes with all phones off:

You need to take the opportunity to plan to be together and turn off your phones and talk, walk or play. The online home based business can be all consuming particularly in the early stages or during times of fluctuating income. Remember that you have made this choice so that you can spend quality time together.

Think of some of the time that you may be saving by working at home. You do not have to commute to work and maybe this saves you two hours a day. Here is some time that you could dedicate to your family, spouse or joint hobby.

If you prefer you could both have separate hobbies and use this time to pursue these. Make sure that this is an agreed option though and one party is not in the office while the other is out hunting and gathering.

Before you start your time together each day remind yourself that this is time that if you were not an entrepreneur and having a good shot at being successful online then you would be sitting in your car in heavy traffic or an a long drive to work . This will help you to appreciate the time that you have created to be together.

The occasional lunch out together to discuss business progress or to not talk about the business at all will also help you keep focused on your relationship outside of the business. It is imperative for your inner health.

If you are lucky enough to live next to a fine coffee house then you should plan to frequent it to relax during the day. Many people find that when they start to work for themselves that they push themselves harder than any boss has ever pushed them.

You have to be mindful of your original goals of choosing to work on your online homebased business together to ensure you do not become slaves to your business.

Remember these three points and you should be on the road to success in all parts of your life.

A Guide To Lining Wallpaper

What is lining paper?

Lining paper is a plain light colored paper that usually has 2 uses, which are a base paper to reduce any blemishes on a wall before hanging your chosen paper, or it is hung on the wall and then painted with a colored emulsion paint to produce a smooth colored finish. If you are going to paint the paper wait 24 hours after hanging it for it to dry out first and then paint it.

What sizes does lining paper come in?

Lining paper comes in all different thicknesses, the thinnest being what is called 800 Grade, increasing to 1000, 1200, 1400, 1700, and then the thickest being 2000 Grade.

The most popular choice when using as a base paper is 1000 or 1200 Grade as they are easier to work with, cover minor blemishes on the wall and provide the ideal base to hang your chosen paper on. If the wall is in a very poor condition, sometimes a thicker paper is then needed and the 1700 or 2000 Grade would be used. If the lining paper is to be painted on then generally the 1400 or 1700 Grade is chosen as it is thicker, more resilient and can absorb the paint better.

How to hang the paper

When used as a base paper, the tradesman quite often hangs the lining paper horizontally instead of vertically which is called "Cross Lining", mainly so the joints of the chosen paper are not directly above the joints of the paper. However, lining papers can be 560ml wide, as against wallpapers, which are generally around 525ml wide. This means that you could hang the paper vertically and there is little chance of the joints matching until 13th or 14th drop, and on one wall it would have to be approximately 24ft long for this to happen.

How many rolls will you need?

The lining paper also comes in 3 different lengths. They are the usual standard size of 10 meters which is the same length as a standard roll of wallpaper, and a "Double Roll" size of 20 meters, and a "Quad Roll" size of 40 meters.

Most walls from the top of the skirting board to the ceiling are 2.2 meters high, so from a standard roll you will get 4 drops + 1.2 meters waste. After using 4 rolls you will have 16 drops + 4.8 meters waste. However, by using a quad roll of 40 meters in length you can get 18 drops + 0.4 meters waste. It is far more efficient to purchase 2 double rolls, or 1 quad roll as against 4 single rolls.

Fiber lining paper

Some Wallpaper Companies produce a "Fiber Lining Paper" which has a much smoother finish and is ideal for painting. These are slightly narrows around 530 / 545ml wide and are also more expensive than the ordinary paper, around £ 8 per roll compared to £ 3 per roll.
