Get Lean Fast and Free With Resveratrol

Unless you are absolutely brand spanking new to the world of health, fitness and working out, you have probably heard about the benefits of resveratrol as a supplement to a healthy lifestyle. And in fact, even if you have not heard of resveratrol, you've most likely heard about the benefits of red wine in the diet, right? Regardless, if you want to get fit and healthy fast, you need to read the rest of this article.

It's been known for years that in parts of the world where moderate red wine consumption is a part of daily life, people have generally had healthier ears and lower obesity. Well, resveratrol is the active ingredient found in red wine, extracted and concentrated so that people can now have the focused benefits of plenty of red wine (the net benefit equivalent of hundreds of glasses of wine per day without what would clearly be some negative effects of consuming that much wine in one day, much less on a regular basis!)

For the past couple of years, resveratrol has been at the forefront of health and longevity discussions because it has been undergoing some extensive research and reports coming from the likes of the New York Times, the Mayo Clinic, Harvard and WebMD have all had very encouraging things to say about it.

These notable and highly respected resources have said that resveratrol shows promise to not only help active people and athletes with things such as greater endurance and improved reaction time, but also helps people to lose weight, have higher energy levels and improved memory. And if that were not enough, it also looks like it can help with chronic diseases that plague our society such as heart disease, cancer and neuro-degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's.

Another 'health secret' you may have heard about is that of significant calorie reduced diets. It has been shown that rats who were given very seriously reduced daily calories showed a tendency to live longer than rats fed a regular diet. With so many methods to extend people's lives, this was an intriguing study. The only problem is, who wants to live significantly longer if you do not get to eat! Well, resveratrol looks to fit in nicely here.

It sees that with the addition of resveratrol, the benefits of drastic calorie reduced diets can be achieved without actually needing to reduce your daily calories. How cool is that!

Of course with such a wonder supplement, many people rightfully expect the costs to be astronomical, to the point where they assume they simply will not be able to afford it, and so they never even bother to look into it. This is a real tragedy because you can actually get very high quality resveratrol supplements at a very reasonable price. In fact, you can even try it for free to see if you have any adverse reactions to it (which is highly unofficially). And when you figure all the health benefits awaiting you, why not at least try some for yourself?

SDS Carbide Tipped Drill Bits For Drilling Concrete

What is a carbide tipped drill bit?

Whenever a post-installed concrete anchor is being used to attach a fixture to cured concrete, a hole must be drilled in the concrete. One popular type of drill bit that is used to drill into cure concrete is the SDS carbide tipped drill bit. SDS is simply the bit retention system – or how the bit is held in the drill. There is some debate as to what the "SDS" acronym stands for. The original German interpretation was "Steck-Dreh-Sitz" meaning Insert-Twist-Stay. As the bit evolved, it has come to be known as a Slotted Drive System or Slotted Drive Shaft. The SDS carbide tipped drill bit is a masonry bit designed for concrete drilling. But unlike ordinary bits, the SDS drill bit provides a longer service life. These carbide tipped masonry drill bits are more durable due to the hardness of the heads- making them tougher and more resistant to extreme loads.
How is a carbide tipped drill bit made?

The SDS drill bit is made up of 5 parts.

1. First, there is the shank, which has two sets of grooves (for a total of four grooves) that fit into the hammer drill collar. The smaller of the grooves are two slots that are not open at the end and prevent the bit from falling out. The larger of the grooves are two grooves that extend to the end of the shank and when chucked in the drill, guide the SDS bit to a positive rotation. This set of grooves also allows the bit to slide in the chuck, enhancing the drilling torque and hammering energy of the tool.

2. The next component of the SDS bit is the land – which is the raised portion of the spiral (similar to the crest or peak of a wave).

3. The third area is the flute, or the trough section of the spiral. The flute facilitates the removal of the concrete dust as the hole is being drilled.

4. The last two components of the SDS bit are the head and the carbide tip, which work together to break up the concrete. The carbide is brazed on to the head to harden the tip of the SDS bit to assist in the breaking of the concrete.

How is this type of drill bit used?

SDS bits are designed for use with a rotary hammer drill. The SDS bit is placed into the end of the drill and is held in place by twisting the chuck of the drill, locking the bit in the collar. The SDS masonry bit is not held solidly in the chuck of the drill, but slides up and down like a piston. The slots in the shank of the SDS bit accept the two ball bearings in the spring loaded chuck of the hammer drill and will remain chucked until disengaged by the user.

The hammer drill should only be used in the hammering and rotation position when using an SDS bit to drill into concrete. The bit will both rotate and reciprocate at the same time. When the trigger is dropped on the hammer drill, a gear driven crank moves a piston back and forth within the pneumatic chamber. The compressed air inside the chamber propels the SDS carbide steel bit forward, delivering a concrete destruction impact. The use of a SDS drill bit in a hammer drill can drill a 3/4 "diameter hole, 4" in depth, in about 30 seconds.

A good rotary hammer drill can drive an SDS bit into concrete without too much effort from the user. In most drilling application pushing harder on the drill will speed up the process. This is not the case with a hammer drill and SDS bit. The SDS bit is actually reciprocating and turning at the same time. Pushing down on the drill will only slow its progress and cause the bit to deteriorate faster.
When should a SDS carbide bit be used?

The SDS carbide tipped drill bit is used for two reasons. The first is to drill holes into concrete, brick or block for the installation of a concrete fastener. The second is to drill holes in concrete, brick or block to create a path for installing wiring and plumbing.

When using an SDS carbide drill bit to drill into a wall, it is important to support the weight of the hammer drill. If the drill does not receive the proper support, the bit itself will carry a portion of the weight. This may cause undue pressure on the flute of the bit possibly causing the drill bit to break in the hole.

It is important not to drill a hole deeper than the intended drilling depth of the bit. This could cause an interruption in the dust removal and increase the amount of heat on the carbide tip. Heat build up on the carbide may melt the brazing material, allowing the carbide plate to move. This possibly could lead to the bit failing in breaking the concrete.
Some suggestions for increasing the life of your SDS drill bits:

* Before drilling, check to see that the carbide tip is in good shape.

* Inspect the connection to make sure that there is not excessive wear. This helps prevent the drill bits from getting stuck in the chuck.

* Lubricate the connection end of the bit to allow the bit shank to slide in the chuck. This is done by applying a small amount of grease to the grooves of the shaft (no more than a quarter inch dollop).

* Let the tool do the work. When used in a quality hammer drill, the SDS drill bit will cut into concrete with relative ease. Hold the drill level and apply pressure evenly through the hole drilling process.

The SDS shank is the most widely used shank type when drilling into concrete. The SDS shank has superb hammer performance, high torque transmission and the ease of one-handed, quick chucking operation.

Please remember with all fastening jobs to keep safety in mind. Always follow safety instructions on all tools, and refer to manufacturer's installation instructions when available and always remember to wear safety goggles!

Five Sales Training Lessons Sales Professionals Can Learn From Donald Trump

Let’s start with what we already know to be true about Trump. About fifty percent of people love him and fifty percent of people hate him.

There doesn’t seem to be a whole lot in between.

People either like Trump or they think he is the biggest jerk to ever come down the pike.

He does an awful lot to alienate and offend certain groups of people. And by the same token, there is a similar number of people or a list of people that Trump appeals to.

So, what is the application for us, as sales professionals? The application is that you and I are very much like Trump. No matter what we do, we are going to have a significant number of people who like us and we are going to have a significant number of people that don’t like us.

Sales Training Lesson #1 Some Will Like You and Some Won’t. It is very instructive and important that you come to the realization that no matter what you do, some are going to like you and some are not going to like you. If you try to be all things to all people, and you try to appeal to every group type or individual that you come in contact with, you are going to constantly be trying to be something that you are not. And it is awfully hard to be something that you are not. You are better served if you will just be whomever it is you are and let the chips fall where they may.

In certain situations, you have to alter your communication style. Unlike Trump, who refuses to alter his communication style, we can alter our communication style without changing who we are, without changing our values, without changing things that we deem to be important. It is important that we be true to who we are, that we let people know who we are, let people know what we stand for and what we don’t stand for. It’s just as important for people to know who you are not as it is for people to know who you are.

Sales Training Lesson #2 Losers Hate Winners. It doesn’t matter what you do, when you start to win and achieve any significant degree of success and rise above mediocrity people are going to be jealous.

When you start ascending the ladder of success, particularly financial success, and it becomes obvious that you are achieving greater and greater financial success, you are going to have a lot of people, who really don’t like you and are going to take shots at you.

When I started my business in 1996, I was driving an old Honda, and my wife had a minivan. Within just a couple years, we started to do really well. My wife got a BMW and I got a Mercedes. They weren’t brand new, but they were nice vehicles. They were certainly a step up from a Honda and a minivan.

One day at church, one of the longtime parishioners, who I thought was a friend said to me, “you know, money isn’t everything. Don’t forget to stop and smell the roses.” I thought that was an odd comment until I started to reflect upon it.

This guy lived in the neighborhood I lived in. His house was kind of run down and beat up a bit. His wife drove an old Pontiac Bonneville, which was on its last legs. He was working as an employee in a blue-collar, dead-end job. He looked at me, and he saw that I used to be in the same boat as him, but then all of a sudden I started making a quarter of a million dollars more than I had previously made and it became evident that I was doing well. It really made him uncomfortable, and the only way that he could make himself feel good was to take a shot at me.

Now, you notice this with Trump. Every one of the other Republican candidates that were running for the nomination, every single one of them, has taken a shot at him.

He probably is worth more money than all the other sixteen people he was against put together. They don’t like it and they see a way to elevate themselves. In their eyes, the way to elevate themselves is to take a shot at him. But the bottom line is, every one of them is insanely jealous of him.

They can’t stand him because he’s so successful. That comes under the heading that “losers hate winners,” and if you’re going to join the ranks of the financially elite, you’re going to have most people in life not like you because most of the people in life aren’t financially successful and they see you as something of a threat to them.

The more successful you become, the more people are going to dislike you, and that just comes with the territory.

Sales Training Lesson #3 Stand for Something. There is a principle in physics that basically works this way; the greater the attraction of two things, the greater the repulsion of those same two things. If you take two magnets and put them on the desk and face them positive to negative, they will go together instantly and you can barely pull them apart. If you then turn one of them around and put positive to positive they will chase each other all over the table and never connect.

If something works in physics, it has to also work in everything else, including human relationships. The human relations application for this is that your ability to attract is directly proportional to your willingness to repel.

If you want to learn more about human relationships and human nature, you should study physics because everything in this world is related. Everything goes together. There are no exceptions to what happens in human nature and what happens in physics. The same principles apply.

If you are afraid of offending people or insulting people because of something you say or do, you will not have a very strong attraction to other people because people are attracted to people who have strong opinions, and the stronger your opinion about something the greater the potential to attract.

The key in business is you want your message to attract your ideal client. And, quite frankly, you shouldn’t care about anybody other than your ideal client. Now, if you are offending your ideal client that’s not a good thing. But, if you offend people who aren’t your ideal client, that’s okay, because they’re not going to become your client or give you money anyway.

So how does that relate with Trump? Trump seems to repel just as many people as he attracts.

Sales Training Lesson #4 Self Confidence. If you are not right on the borderline of arrogance, you won’t be as successful as someone who exudes extreme self- confidence.

People do not buy products and services. They buy the people or the person who is doing the selling. Buyers do not buy products and services because they don’t know enough to make great, unbiased, well thought out decisions about the products and services that you and I sell.

What they do recognize, and what they are attracted to, is our supreme level of confidence about how we sell and the advice we give. They become a client because of your supreme confidence. That’s another lesson that we can learn from Trump.

When in doubt, be bold about what you’re doing. Don’t “Mickey Mouse” around, don’t be hat-in-hand, or meek and mild. Step up, be bold, and people will be attracted to that.

Sales Training Lesson #5 Personality. What does Trump really get paid for? If you listen to him, and have read and kept up with what he’s talking about, and listened to him, he doesn’t really have a great fundamental understanding of the issues. It doesn’t appear as though he has spent much time studying the issues. In fact, I’m not even sure he cares about the issues.

I think what he cares about is being Trump, and the persona of Trump. And so, what does Donald Trump really get paid to do? He gets paid to be Donald Trump.

People seem to be attracted to that personality. They don’t seem to care that he doesn’t have a clue about some of the issues and some of the things that some of the other candidates seem to have a pretty firm grasp on.

The takeaway for all of us is that we need to realize and become more of a personality-based marketer, rather than a product and service marketer. Buyers are attracted to personality. They’re drawn to a personality like a Luna Moth is drawn to a fire. They’re not going to be drawn to a product or service, because they don’t understand a product or service, but they sure as heck do understand personality. So, you and I both should spend a lot of time creating a persona, and projecting that persona into the marketplace.

Now that personality, that persona, may or may not be the real person that we are. We may be one persona in business, and another persona, or person, outside of business. That’s okay. I’ve said it before, and I truly believe this: Selling is an acting job. If you want to learn how to sell better, take some acting lessons, because the best sales people are really actors. It’s not who they are, it’s the role they play.

When they put on their suit in the morning, it’s show time baby, and they go out and project the image, the persona, the courage and all the stuff that they need to do in order to influence and persuade people to do what they want them to do, which is to trade them their money for their product or service.

There’s absolutely nothing wrong with that, and Mr. Trump seems to be very, very good at doing that.

Roofing Works and Services

Roof covering installation and assembly

Roof structure is often called "roofing pie" and not without reason – indeed, any rooftop constants of several elements, which, sort of stratifying on each other, create strong custody for housing. Each of coating construction's layers performances its own designated role, whether that be moisture-proofing, noise insulation, or defense against heat loss. During roof's installation it is important to pay particular attention to the sequence of coats in order to ensure the effectiveness of their functions. Basic elements are:

– damp-proof membrane and vapor sealing pellicle;

– warmth-keeping lagging;

– protection against wind;

– roof-boarding material;

– ventilation arrangement;

– other components.

Roof installation imprints creation of such a "pie", which at the final stage is covered with cladding or that, and, if necessary, is painted. Material selection to obtain the desired hermeticity and durability is transported out with due regard to climate characteristics, building's design and architectural peculiarities, roof's structure (flat or pitched). In addition, it is important to consider a degree of loads imposed by snow, winding and other atmospheric phenomena.

Assembly of flat-deck and enclosed roofs, other roofing activities require different approaches, equipment and appropriate knowledge of installers. Let's take a detailed look at different roofs' specificities, and focus on such important operational aspects as repairing, maintenance and mounting of rainwater systems.

Features of flat roofs installation

Flat roofs with a slope less than 2.5 degrees are arranged by means of fusion-bonded reel-fed materials or polymeric membranes. These stuffs are specifically designed for terraced-roof option, customized in light of its profile, that gives them maximum protection against weathering, ultraviolet exposure, etc. Assembling rolled materials is accomplished by welding sheets of roll composition roofing using hot air. Various mastics allow achieving waterproof membrane's perfect impermeability.

Assembly of membranous rooftops is executed by attaching the fabric to roofing's screed; membrane sheets are fastened between each other by hot-air welding method. Extruded heat retainers, mineral wool rigid insulants and expanded plastics are applied for flat-deck roofs' winterization. Installation technologies and insulation's choice is determined by roofing type and loads intensity on it.

Pitch roof installation notes

Pitched roofs with a slope of above 8-12 degrees are covered with different roofing materials, which which the most common are clay roofing shingles , metal tile, profiled sheeting, flexible bituminous shingle and cement-sand tiles. In most cases choice of suitable option id driven by customer's personal preferences and size of budget allotted for housetop arrangement.

Corrugated sheets and metal shingles are installed by laying on lathing and fastening with special self-drilling screws. Folded covering assembly involves the use of specialized equipment, by which galvanized steel sheets are bonded in seams (single or double). Flexible bitumen tiles are laid on roof's substructure, which is preliminary necessary to be carefully prepared – cleaned and dried. Mounting versatile bitumen plates is executed overlapping or on self-adhesive tile layer (in certain cases – asphalt coating compound), or by means of nails. Species of slate are laid on prepared lathwork; shingles are attached using stencils with rubber gasket and anticorrosion cap. Holes for nails in sheets of slate are drilled in advance. Thermal insulation of inclined roofs, implying the presence of loft (or mansard), is produced using fiberglass or mineral-based materials having density from 35 to 125 kg / cubic meter. Depending on whether attic or mansard will be arranged, heaters are attached along the slope or on ceiling slab respectively. Qualitative carrying out of works on roofing weatherization can substantially reduce electricity consumption for heating and improve reliability of the entire roof structure.

Roof repair

Despite the fact that installing carried out by professionals ensures housetop's trustability and its primary function – protection against atmospheric precipitation, soonheless sooner or later a necessity of repair arises. Roof repair, regardless of its type, is divided into current and capital. Current repairing includes eliminating small defects in coating (cracks, bumps, depressurization of joints), and if necessary, elements' partial replacement. Major overhauls replacing roofing material, concluding dismanting of old covering, restoration of roof structure, installation of thermal insulation, installation of new coverage and painting (if necessary).

Timely construction of current repairs allows to maintain the roof in excellent condition with minimal resources and efforts. Permanent maintenance performed by professionals is important to detect and correct defects.

Roofing maintenance

In order to extend roofing's service life and eliminate the need for major repairs, attendance is conducted, implying thorough inspection and elimination of existing defects. Different types of covering require individual approach and high professionalism. Examination should be done at least twice a year for timely detection of potential problems. Roofing service may also include roofing cleaning spillway chutes and pipes, sealing elements of roofing system, cleaning debris, snow and ice from the roof, painting elements that have lost their original appearance and many other things.

Drainage systems arrangement

Organization of gutters is necessary action in building any rooftop. For pitched roofs exterior drain system is used, consisting of pipes and gutters fabricated of metal or PVC. Properly organized water disposal shields facade and basement from premature destruction upon exposure to humidity and, in addition, allows giving the house more finished attractive look.

Choice of material and shape of the drain elements is dictated by customer's financial resources and personal aesthetic preferences. In most cases, installing PVC gutters is less expensive, but because of their properties to change under influence of temperature, plastic pipes and gutters can lead to leakages. Modern rainwater systems' manufacturers for this purpose develop special sealants delivered with PVC gutters, which can significantly prolong their lifespan.

Copper cunettes are considered to be the most durable, but other metallic watercourses also have an excellent performance and can serve for decades. "General Builder" also offers solutions for flat roofs, where internal runoff systems, including spillway funnels, pipes and connectors, are organized. Professionals' participation is necessary for optimal calculation of load, imposed on drainage system. Works should be carried out with clear correspondence to requirements specified in regulatory documents, taking into account structure's slope, dimensions, and many other factors.

How to Refinish Laminate Cabinets

Many people absorb laminate cabinets can not be finished, but this is far from the truth! There is no need to replace laminate cabinets because they are old or outdated. Instead, you can simply refinish them! Instantly brighten, modernize, and alter the look of your kitchen's laminate cabinetry all within your budget. It is important to review the correct process for laminate cabinet refinishing in order to achieve the best possible results. For those uncomfortable with do-it-yourself hand work, there's no need to worry; you can hire a professional contractor and still stay within budget! Continue reading for a brief guideline to refinishing laminate kitchen cabinets, and who to call for general general contractor work for kitchen remodeling in your town!

Laminate Kitchen Cabinets

If you are determined to refinish your kitchen laminate cabinets on your own, then good for you! Take a look at the guide below to learn some of the major components and key points for these particular projects. Be sure to prepare by first gathering all the necessary supplies and tools to get the job done right. These include:

  • Paint and Paint Primer ( Water-Based )
  • Foam Rollers
  • Rolling Pans
  • Painter's Tape
  • Sandpaper ( 240 & 150 Grit Sheets )
  • Old Bed Sheets or Drop Cloths
  • Disinfectant Spray
  • Clean Rags
  • Microfiber Cloth
  • Permanent Marker
  • Screwdriver

For an even more updated look, you can purchase and install new, more modern-looking cabinet handles. These are available for a variety of designs and prices at any hardware or home store. If any laminate is peeling or cracking, it will need to be replaced exclusively. Do not proceed to refinish peeling or cracked laminate cabinetry. However, if it is only slightly peeling in one corner or so, you can simply sand the exposed area behind the laminate, and then re-glue it using a water-proof adhesive. Use masking tape to hold it in place while it dries. This works best for small areas and corners. Once you have accumulated all the tools and supplies you need, you are ready to get started.

Here's how:

First clean all of the cabinets. Dust them with the microfiber cloth to remove solids, and then follow with a thorough wipe down using the disinfectant spray. This provides stronger primer adhesion and ensures a cleaner smoother finish.

Using the screwdriver, remove each cabinet face and its handle while keeping track of where each one goes. Use the permanent marker to label each one so you will remember where to replace it later.

Place the cabinet faces on the drop cloths, making sure the edges remain exposed and accessible. Be sure the drop cloths cover enough surface area to protect the surrounding environment from paint.

Use the painter's tape to line the inside edges of the cabinet faces to prevent paint drips. Take your time on this step to ensure accuracy.

Use the 240 grit sandwich sheets to manually sand the cabinet faces. You may choose to use a handheld portable sander if you are familiar with its operation. Just be sure to not over-sand.

After sanding, use your microfiber cloth to wipe away the residual dust and sanding debris. Do this thoroughly and remove as much dust as possible.

Using your foam roller, apply a coat of water-based paint primer to each cabinet face. Allow this to dry completely, usually 8 to 12 hours depending on the brand.

Once the primer is applied and has served completely, sand each cabinet face again using the 150 grit sandwich. Remove excess sanding dust with your microfiber cloth afterwards.

Do steps 7 and 8 again.

Once both coats of primer are applied and have washed, it is time to apply your water-based paint choice using your second foam roller. Be sure to use v-strokes during application to promote even paint marks and distribution.

Repeat step 10.

Allow the cabinets to dry for at least 72 hours before reattaching hardware and reassembling them in their rightful place. This ensures that the paint has been discharged and hardened completely.

Not a DIY Kind of Person? No Problem!

You may choose to hire a professional painting contractor instead of tackling this project on our own. If you are not familiar with a handy work, and have never painted before, it may be the wisest choice. And you can still stay within a cost-effective budget when you hire professionals for the job.

Roof Repair – How to Repair Leaking Roofs

Your roof will eventually have damage. And with that damage comes more problems. Leaks can occur, pouring water to the interior of your home. If you do not want this to happen, then you can try replacing your entire roof. But that would cost a lot, especially if you have shingles. An alternative method here would be roof repair. Roof repair can be done by you and with the help of your family or friends. So if you want to stop leaks without using a large sum of money, then you better try roof repair. How do you repair Leaking roofs? Here's how:

The first thing that you have to do is to ready the materials you would need in the roof repair. You would need binoculars, flat-soled shoes, weighted marks, hammer, nails, metal bristles brush, rags, sharp knife, roofing cement, trowel, roof patching fabric and gloves.

Check out your roof for any signs of imperfections in it. You need to use the binoculars to scan your roof from the ground. Take note of all the problems you see on your roof. Now try walking all over your roof. Begin walking on one end and walk on every possible areas. Again, take note of the possible problems you see on the roof.

Observe all of your vents, skylights and air conditioning units. You need to look for places in which the roofing feature is separated from the roof. Find the places where the roofing tar or cement has cracks. Now, get a flashlight and start looking for water trails inside your home. Look for the origin of the leak and pierce that part with a nail. This is done so that you can identify the place later. If you see sunlight shining in from the ceiling, pierce a nail on that part too.

Before doing this next step, make sure that you have found all the origins of the water leak. Now, go to the shingles that you've identified to have problems. Pull up those shingles and apply roofing cement benefit it. Replace any nails on it and cover those nails with roofing cement. Now, you need to repair the roofing cement or tars that have cracks. Usually, you have to remove the fixture (such as the air conditioning unit) to repair the crack. Remove the old roofing cement / tar, clean the area and let it dry. Put the fixture back and put roofing cement on it and the roof itself. Put small holes on the cement to drain the water.

Fix any cracks and other source of leaks in flat roofing materials. Put roofing cement on it, then a piece of roof patching fabric and add roofing cement. With this, roof repair should be complete.

The Mathematical Colours of Human Survival Technology

The Romantic Era of the Arts from the mid 18th Century to the mid 19th Century was inspired by the ideals of a lost ethical ancient science. Its leaders were concerned that humans had deviated into being governed by a lifeless mechanistic culture. The philosopher of science Wolfgang von Goethe considered that Isaac Newton had betrayed the science of colour to reduce all to a black and white mechanistic reality. Goethe’s linguistic colour perception theories were revived in 2012 as a book of the year ‘Through the Language Glass’, written by the linguist-physicist Guy Deutscher. However, few people are aware that in fact, Isaac Newton actually refuted the idea that the mechanical theory of the universe was complete and that like the Romanticists, he had derived this opinion from the same lost ethical science.

The work of other poets and artists during the Romantic Era that had attacked Newton for having a science derived from a clockwork description of a mechanical universe has now been linked to important DNA discoveries and the issue has become a crucial human survival one. It is an outstanding achievement that in 2017 the World Fund for Arts in Russia has taken upon itself to rejuvenate the Science-Art ethos belonging to the Romantic Era of yesteryear.

Newton’s mathematical genius supported a more profound description of the universe than that of a lifeless mechanistic cosmos. Science, economics and religion approved of the mechanistic model, the basis from which a false quantum mechanics was derived by teaching that Newton’s world-view was mechanical. Both political and commercial science, together with religious persuasion gained control of our unbalanced modern science. Along with the scientists, religious institutions were in denial that the living process evolved to infinity, evoking religious laws to enforce their opinions. The lost ancient ethical science could not come into its own until the time for knowledge about living human DNA arrived. It is now possible for quantum mechanics to be made complete by researching its entanglement with the science of quantum biology.

Arthur C Clark’s television documentary ‘The Colours of Infinity’ was about Benoit Mandelbrot’s discovery of infinite fractal mathematics. Within the documentary a comment was made that the evolution of civilisation was not included in the purpose of an infinite universe. The reason for that is because prevailing science is governed by the ‘Universal Heat Death Law’, which states that all the heat of the universe is going to radiate away into cold space and eventually all life in the universe must become extinct.

History’s most famous mathematician, Georg Cantor was also history’s most despised mathematician for daring to challenge the global scientific death cult. His declaration that a dysfunctional fear of infinity had infected the minds of modern age scientists created an international scientific and religious furore. World famous mathematicians, strongly objecting to such a pronouncement, joined together to savagely condemn his concept that the life force process could be evolving toward infinity. Influential religious leaders were enraged that Cantor’s mathematical conviction overturned their stubborn insistence that only a Supreme Deity could permit any access to infinity. The religious leaders, with differing Gods, were all willing to fight to the death as soldiers bravely upholding their sacred responsibility to protect their participation within the global death cult.

The NASA High Energy Project has published a paper by the Science Advisor to the Belgrade Institute of Physics, Petar Grujic, showing that ancient Greek mathematics incorporated aspects of infinite fractal logic. From the jumble of old mathematical ideas an ethical atomic political science emerged to guide democratic ideals, vaguely referring to the evolution of an infinite moral wisdom. This proposed science was designed to guide an ennobling form of government so the civilisation could become part of an ethical universal purpose. Such a science was held necessary to avoid the extinctions belonging to the giant fossilised remains of previous life-forms that had not survived their tooth and claw arms race. In Plato’s Republic, the ancient atomic theories had advanced to the stage where Platonists defined ‘Evil’ as a destructive property within the atom, which could emerge to destroy civilisation. Therefore, the lost pagan atomic political science warrants our immediate attention. We need to balance the destructive aspect of atomic mathematical emotion with the atomic mathematics of what the ancient Greeks called virtuous mathematical emotions.

The Greek mathematics governing ethical atomic evolution posited the idea that the 28-day cycle of moon movement influenced the development of the female fertility cycle. It held that harmonic vibrations emanating from the moon resonated with the atoms of a mother’s spirit to explain her ethical love and compassion for children. Ancient Indian mathematical logic was not so vague about the concept of a living infinite mathematical reality. Sanskrit mathematics, developed before the Greek political atomic science came into existence, alluded to a future technology to be derived from the mathematics of infinity. However, today the prevailing thermodynamic heat death culture prevents adequate investigation into the development of such a technology.

The harmonious Greek mathematical process belonged to the ‘Music of the Spheres’, which the scientist Johannes Kepler used to make his famous astrological discoveries. Enough scientific discoveries have since followed to prove that the thermodynamic heat death cult information, governing every aspect of our ensured path to extinction, is quite simply a nonsense concept. During the 1980s Australian researchers proved this is to be an absurd situation.

In 1979 China’s most highly awarded physicist Kun Huang, gave Australian Science-Art researchers the methodology to measure the life-force governing seashell growth and development. They proved that our extinction law is what the mathematician Cantor said it was, a neurological malfunction within the scientific mindset.

Seashell life forms have existed for 50 million years and have not become extinct. In Australia the ancient Greek infinite mathematics was programmed into a computer to generate seashell evolutionary simulations over a 50 million year period. The computer simulations matched perfectly with the mathematical language written within the seashell fossil record. The dysfunctional mathematics upholding our thermodynamic death culture can only generate distorted or carcinogenic futuristic seashell simulations. Therefore, the law governing healthy seashell evolution toward infinity belonged to the mathematical messages coming from the living creature within the seashell.

In 1990 the world’s largest technological institute IEEE, based in Washington, placed the discovery alongside such names as Louis Pasteur and Francis Crick. However, eminent scientists locked into their association with the Australian Government’s thermodynamic culture became extremely hostile when confronted with this simple factual observation.

The hostility toward the prediction that the seashell research was socially important had begun in 1979, following the Commonwealth Science Unit of Australian National Television in that year documenting the seashell research background into its internationally screened series, The Scientists – Profiles of Discovery. Scientists and Government Art Administrators joined forces in 1986 to attack the validly of the seashell discoveries published by Italy’s leading scientific journal, Il Nuovo Cimento, during the 1980s. Later in 2009 they abruptly ceased their constant deprecation of the Science-Art research when it was awarded a Gold Medal Laureate by an Academy of Science in London.

The Science-Art theories of the molecular biologist, Sir C P Snow, delivered at the 1959 Rede Lecture at Cambridge University and the ‘Letter to Science’ in 1974 written by the Nobel Laureate cancer researcher, Szent Gyorgyi, had one thing in common. They both argued that the existing obsolete thermodynamic scientific culture belonged to the primitive mindset of our Neolithic ancestors.

The extreme difference between ethical and non-ethical mathematical emotional language is now very obvious. Poker machine mathematics, accompanied by sound and colour vibrations, can create a strong emotional compulsion to enter into states of financial and moral bankruptcy. Plutocratic governments (government by the wealthy), wage constant unethical poker-machine-like warfare against each other. They employ this deceitful mathematical-artistic phenomenon, forming alliances to maintain global power, for the militant protection of the people (Szent-Gyorgi’s ‘Crazy Ape’ tribe) that they represent.

The accompanying disregard to damage suffered by their constant creation of bankruptcy victims, simply echoes the harsh reality of the seeming naturally occurring law of the survival of the fittest paradigm. The salient point to be made however, is that to the ancient Greek science, the poker-machine mentality was correctly predicted to be based upon false emotional illusions.

In 2010 the fusing of the controversial Australian research with quantum biological cancer research in partnership with Quantum Art International was important. It resulted in the discovery of the antidote to the global epidemic of dysfunctional illusory scientific information transmitted by the mass production of communication and information devices.

The primary evidence as to the technological potential of the antidote contained an important visual proof. Unlike the poker machine designed to employ colour vibrations to control the mind the antidote reverses the process resulting in the mind controlling the colours in a painting. The electromagnetic emotional field bringing about this phenomenon can now be visually demonstrated.

In 2016 their presentation of the antidote theory together with relevant artwork at the International Contemporary Arts Competition in Russia, under the auspices of the World Fund for Arts, won a first prize. In 2017 the President of the World Arts Fund appointed the Founder of Quantum Art International to assist establish a Science-Art Research Project for the betterment of the global human condition.

The above mentioned ‘Evil’ within Plato’s ethical atomic political science can now be considered as a form of a neurological cancer threatening global civilisation. It can be reasoned that the antidote can best be introduced by a powerful military complex employing what is referred to as a soft military diplomacy, a sharing of mutual beneficial information technologies with other nations. From the DNA perspective that humans can be considered to belong to one race this diplomacy could overcome fanatical violent religious persuasions. From the DNA viewpoint, humans attacking humans is obviously a nonproductive neurological form of cancer. By simply programming the dysfunctional world-view’s entanglement with the antidote information the survival blueprint simulations can be generated for humans rather than for seashell life forms.

To summarise, Sir Isaac Newton most certainly did not believe that the mechanical description of the universe was complete. In his 28th Query Discussions he published, under the threat of being burnt alive by the Church for his statement: that those who thought that gravitational force was caused by the mass of objects in space were pretentious and illogical. He actually stated that the more authoritative scientific understanding of the matter came from the ancient Greek science. The discoveries of the great scholars of the artistic Golden Era of Romanticism had also derived their ethics from that same lost ancient science.

The social significance of all the above was dramatized by the Australian Science-Art author/artist Chris Degenhardt in his book “Democracy on Trial – The verdict” published in 2002. From the perspective of DNA discoveries made since that time he published a retrial involving new evidence exonerating Sir Isaac Newton from Wolfgang Von Goethe’s charge that Newton had destroyed the science of emotional colour perception. In 2017, the Retrial edition of the above book was published under the auspices of Feedaread Publishing, in association with Amazon Books.

Current Trends For Painting Contractors

The year 2010 sees the emergence of innovative painting products and applications that characterize the post-crisis atmosphere of the building industry. New paint colors reflect the light-hearted ambiance of people who are slowly getting their buying powers back. Eco-friendly painting applications sum up the ever-maturing green consciousness of the public.

Paint Color Forecasts

An evolution in paint pigments appears in many manufacturers’ pallets this year. The array of hues caters to a variety of consumer tastes and preferences, summarized below:

1. Comfort Colors

Painting contractors can choose muted neutrals for a subtle calming effect in facility interiors. These colors are mixed with undertones that adjust to the surroundings. The final look is one of understated simplicity and comfort.

2. Warm and Vibrant Colors

Paint colors that are bright and rich are offered for interior applications. Painting contractors can use these playful and vivid colors to create a positive and dynamic room atmosphere.

3. Artistic Colors

Manufacturers have produced a collection of pastel-colored paints for walls and murals evocative of Monet paintings. Vibrant earth-toned colors are also being offered to create ethnic, Asian and African themes. Painting contractors note that this year there is also a resurgence of “worn” or “old-world” themes using muted patinas.

Green Painting

Ecologically-friendly paints are cornering a wider market than before. This is apparent in the line of offerings from major manufacturers:

1. Low-odor water-based latex paints that contain low- to zero-VOC (volatile organic compounds) are used as interior coatings systems.

2. Acrylic coatings applicable for outdoor conditions and constant exposure to the elements. These paints dry faster than regular exterior coatings.

3. Paint biocides increase in demand as the construction industry turn away from harmful solvent-based to water-based systems, driving down the cost of paint biocides further downward. The result is the increased market for hygienic coatings.

4. Green paint supplies ranging from recycled nylon-bristled brushes and rollers to biodegradable trays and other earth-friendly materials.

Painting Contractors

To adapt to the new trends in the industry, painting contractors are changing their methodologies, techniques and mind sets:

1. Painting contractors increase their familiarity of paints and finishes, particularly the newest released products in the market.

2. Painting contractors deepen their skills to support nearly all requirements of building construction, repair and maintenance. They cross-train personnel on tasks like interior and exteriors renovations, carpentry, wood-working, and wallpaper-work, among others. A wide expertise in just about every aspect of the job allows them to deliver complete quality service to clients.

3. Painting contractors comply with industry standards and certify themselves in industry regulating bodies to increase their competency.

4. Painting contractors establish relationships with their trade partners to deliver more benefits to clients.

Future Forward

Various researches are being conducted to advance the state of the painting technology. The aim is keep in step with environmental goals of energy efficiency and lesser environmental toxicity.

The paints of the future will roll out from these research labs and into painting contractors’ hands thanks to a variety of research initiatives done today. These areas are not limited to:

1. Improved paint application efficiency

2. Better paint curing and drying

3. Paint disposal and recycle-ability

4. Smart self-cleaning paints

5. Better paint monitoring and control

The Mass Appeal of CFD Trading

The similarity between traditional trading and CFD trading is that they make money on moving share prices and other investment instruments. In both cases you need to have some knowledge of the market scenario around you to make sound judgment and split second decisions.

What Is A CFD?

A Contract for Difference is an agreement according to which you are not dealing in actual physical instrument but only on the movement of the value of the instrument. You are trading on the difference in its buying and selling price.

For example, the value of a particular stock is $ 5. You buy 100 CFD's of that stock. When the value of that stock goes up and your share CFD's is $ 5.50 each, you sell the stock. You earn a profit of $ 0.50 x 100 this way. Thus, $ 50 is your profit.

Other Factors Involved

This is simply the basic nature of the trading that takes place. There are a number of other points that affect the profit percentage. First, there will be commission charged that will be taken out of the profit. This will be part of the costs that you incur on buying the contracts for difference in the first place.

Next, you need to put up some amount of margin money upfront for deposit. This amount is variable and changes depending on the broker, the client or volume of the trade.

It is not necessary that the value will increase on the CFD of the stock that you have bought. You need to have enough money in your account to handle such issues.

What You Can Do To Minimize Risks

CFD Trading is not for someone who buys stock and hopes about it till the time it moves up or down. This is a very volatile and fluctuating market. You need to keep a close eye on the prices so that you can make informed decisions and buy or sell accordingly.

If you understand market scenarios and have an idea of ​​stock trends you can make sound judgments and profit in a very short time.

You also have the option of a stop-loss. To minimize the risk you can put in a stop at the trading when the value comes down to a certain point. If it continues to fall then you have saved your position by stopping at that particular value where you can take the risk.

Appeal Of CFD Trading

Since you are not dealing with actual shares but only derivatives you can take advantage of fluctuating price movements. If you have the habit of watching the market trends and speculating successfully the future of that stock then CFD trading is the best for you. You can make a tidy profit without having to buy the shares in the first place. But your account should also have enough to handle the risk if it goes the other way.

Since CFD trading does not happen in the markets, you can take your time, learn the market trend and the latest news and inform your broker even when the markets are closed. With the benefit of online trading at your fingertips you can do this from home itself.

Main Advantages and Disadvantages of Coffee-Pod Machines

Capsule machines provide a great alternative to automatic espresso machines. They bring together all of the advantages of a fully automated system for a fast coffee making process.

Advantages

  • Capsule machines simplify the whole process of making coffee, cutting out the grinding, the pressing and the storage of the coffee.
  • These small hermetically sealed containers, coffee capsules, guarantee the coffee’s freshness for up to 6 months.
  • The coffee in the capsule is ground to perfection and sealed at optimum pressure.
  • To make a fresh coffee, all you have to do is pop the capsule into the machine, press a button and wait for the machine to do all the work.
  • Being a simpler version of traditional coffee machines, these are generally much smaller. This means that you don’t have to worry about whether it will fit in your kitchen, as they make the most of the reduced space available in today’s homes.
  • You also avoid having to deal with the messy waste from the ground coffee, as it is all contained in the coffee-pod. All you have to do is get rid of the empty pods.

Disadvantages

  • Although single-serve machines are smaller than traditional espresso machines, this isn’t reflected in the price as they generally cost the same.
  • Single- serve machines can only be used with the capsules on offer from that same manufacturer, that is to say, you can’t use coffee-pods made for one machine in a different one. For example, Nespresso capsules can only be used with Nespresso machines.
  • So you should make sure beforehand that you like the kind of coffee on offer from your machine’s manufacturer.
  • Buying the capsules generally works out quite expensive

Coffee-pod machines are best suited to…

  • … small offices with limited space and limited time to buy and make coffee.
  • … homes of 1-3 persons.
  • … anyone who can afford to buy the coffee-pods and who would benefit from these machines’ unique features.

Blog Best Practices

A blog is an opportunity to showcase a company’s culture and personality while shedding some light on the products they offer. The goal of blogging is establishing authority through content that adds value to your industry, which in turn will, ultimately position your company as an industry leader. The following are a few best practices to keep in mind when creating content for a blog.

#1 Compelling Blog Titles

Compelling titles entices your reader to the content that follows. Research shows that 80% of people will read headline copy but only 20% click to read the content of the article. For this reason, having a clear idea of your message must shine through in your blog title.

#2 Length of Blogs

Blogs can be short or long in length. However, when at all possible, try to go long. Research says that an optimal blog length is 2250 to 2500 words. If your subject needs to be short and to the point, try to write at least 500 words as blogs index better after that count. Additionally, blogs are about information both written and visual, so words can be replaced by images or video. When using images or video, be sure to credit the creator and add a description to be referenced on the blog.

#3 Address a specific topic

Each blog should address a specific area that your company excels. When writing a blog post, don’t concentrate on the length instead focus on the message you wish to communicate with the reader. It is better to read something that has value than a long blog that never gets to the point.

#4 Show the Reader You Know Your Topic

Don’t rest on your laurels. Let your blog visitors value the content you are creating. Be sure to do your research, provide current statistics, and reference factual content. The goal is to build a trust with your audience so they will return for more information.

#5 Blogs Need to Be Useful and Informative

Content should be useful to your audience no matter if they are a client or not. Two good questions to ask when writing the blog is “Would I find this useful?” and “Would it be worthy of sharing with someone I know?”. If you can’t say “Yes” to either go back to the drawing board by creating new content.

#6 Call to Action

Triggering an action is always a great way to end a blog. Having them “Act Now” or “Learn More” about your services or product is a great way to close a blog.

#7 SEO and Frequency

Posting on a regular schedule increases reader loyalty and click through. Different types of content will enable a larger keyword index link for SEO. Additionally, backlinks and long tail keywords will increase our blog’s indexing. This will ultimately drive more traffic to your website.

Microsoft Excel Tips – Adding a Table to Excel (Excel Tables)

Decide on the list of information you need to keep in the Table. With your mouse highlight the entire area. Next go to the menu at the top and select insert. Now you will have an option for Table. When you select Table, Excel 2007 also lets you select a new style for the table. (Short Cut key is Ctrl L or Ctrl T) Keyboard shortcut You can also press CTRL + L or CTRL + T.

The new styles are called Themes. Notice you can place you mouse over a Theme and the Table you selected will give you a preview of what the new Table could look like. When you find one you want click on it with the mouse. If you do not fine any themes you like look to the right of the sample Themes and you will see arrows that will expand the list.

Several really nice things about a Table are that you can filter the data. Say for instance the first column is Inventory item, and the second column is the warehouse it is in and they third is the vendor you purchased the product from and so on. Now without anything else you can simply filter to see what items came from a specific warehouse, or that would be purchased on a specific day.

Another benefit of a Table is that it is dynamic. In may example go to the bottom right field and press the TAB key. You will see a NEW record appear. You do not have to change the Table information; it automatically changes as you go. If you have a named field it does not change, but if you make the named area inside a Table then the named field becomes dynamic.

Sterling Style – How to Avoid Tarnishing Your Beloved Silverware

Of all the metals man has given value to and prized over the centuries, it is silver that is one of the most valuable and one of the most practical. This combination of versatility and beauty has made silver products some of the most prized possessions in the collections of many illustrious owners. And naturally, as is the case when many things that are beautiful and valuable, a lot of people go to great lengths to obtain them and maintain their beauty.

But silver, no matter how pure they may initially be when they get added to your collection, can and does get tarnished. Many chemical reactions occur between silver and substances that have sulfur. When silver and sulfur combine, it forms a compound called silver sulfide. And this is most probably the source of the tarnish in your silver.

So what can you do to avoid getting that annoying tarnish on your silver? Here are a few things you can try:

– Keep rubber away from your silver: Rubber contains a lot of sulfur and if you took notice of the effect sulfur can have on silver, you’d do well to keep your silver away from any rubber bands, silverware holders, placemats and dishmats that may happen to be lying around your house.

– Food, food, food: As much as silverware is one of the grander things that can be used for eating in high society, prolonged exposure to food can cause your silver to corrode. Mustard, mayonnaise and egg are the most usual culprits.

– Not being used enough: On the other end of the spectrum, not using your silverware enough can also lead to corrosion. So use it as regularly as you can, while observing the proper ways of taking care of silver products.

Types of Resins For Casting

Different types of resins are regularly used for making casts. Polyester, epoxy and polyurethanes may all be resins, but their properties vary greatly. Many people just end up getting confused about which resin is suitable for a particular purpose.

A detailed look at each class of resin can help clear the uncertainty:

Polyester resin – This is a viscous liquid that is well-resistant to heat, fire and chemicals. It is flexible, cheap and comes in a variety of colors. The excellent features of polyester resin are commonly used to make any porous material rigid and weather resistant – such as fiber glass, bottles, surfboards, skis, fishing rods, laminates and so on. It enjoys great use in fabricating various parts of ships, aircraft and so on.

While it is quite easy to use, there are numerous other issues associated with polyester resin. It needs to be reinforced with fiber glass to make it mechanically strong. It tends to shrink unpredictably, turns yellow with age, can break easily and lets off a noxious odor. In fact, the user has to use safety gloves, goggles and a respirator to protect himself from the carcinogenic fumes. Proper ventilation is required even during curing to safely air out the fumes.

Epoxy resin – This is the highest performing resin but works out the most expensive too. It has a brownish color and clear ones tend to cost even more. Epoxy resin boasts of excellent mechanical, chemical, electrical and weather resistant properties, making it a favorite in ship, boat and aircraft components. This resin has low shrinkage and strong adhesive properties. Additionally, there are no toxic odors either.

However, it may take several hours or even days to cure completely. This can still be hastened by changing the curing agent. It is used for multiple purposes – as an adhesive, sealant, paint, varnish and for casting purposes.

Polyurethane resin – This is a versatile, tough and durable material. It has good physical, chemical and electrical properties and can be effectively combined with other resins to increase its usefulness. Polyurethanes come in various viscosities, tend to cure quickly and have a low odor that does not require a respirator either. The only drawback is the moisture sensitivity – they fail to cure properly in humid conditions or in molds containing water.

Polyurethane resin is used as an adhesive, insulation, foam liner in clothing and quick casting of prototypes. Polyurethane casting resins come in opaque and water clear varieties. The former set within a few minutes itself to an ivory color while the latter take a little longer and also need to be de-aired prior to use. Polyurethane casting resins are suitable for making cold castings and expandable ones are also available in the market.

In sum, there are various casting resins and each comes with its own set of benefits and downsides. While polyester resin will cost low, it can be dangerous to use and polyurethane resin may be heavier on the pocket but trumps in versatility and tenacity.
