UK Air Freight Company Services And Revenues Are Increasing

In 2004 it estimated that the UK Air Freight market was worth £ 726.1m and most of this was attributed to international services and the domestic service is very limited as it is controlled by road transport operators.

British Airways which offers an air freight service as a by product of its passenger operations are the largest provider of air freight capacity, but non-scheduled operations are beginning to grow quickly as well.

There are a number of positive impacts in relation to the UK air freight companies and these are as follows: –

1. Growth in world trade and the chance of new markets opening up to businesses in the UK.

2. A reduction in the price of air freight rates as a result of competition between the various air freight companies.

3. The need for people to move goods around the world faster and more reliably.

4. The change in manufacturing processes which require the widespread adoption of just-in-time working practices.

Also the services provided by UK air freight companies have become an integral part of the efficient operation of the UK's economy today which is less vulnerable than some other markets due to recession.

Many of the UK Air Freight Company services can offer such things as door to door services as well as the more typical arrival airport only variations to many parts of the world. These companies are also likely to have specialist systems set up in order to handle hazardous goods for some customers and will usually have an extensive network of agents around the world to ensure the smooth clearance of goods through Customs, as well as being able to deliver the goods almost anywhere that a customer wants.

Also many UK air freight companies have benefited from the growth in passenger travel as this now increases the amount of cargo capacity available. Because of this a worldwide network of cargo services has been created that offer the customer more ways to get their goods to the destination more quickly and efficiently.

Although the UK air freight company service market took a down turn after the attacks on the US in September 2001 but growth has resumed again and more people are looking at this as a viable way of transporting their goods efficiently and quickly.

Cunninlingus For Beginners – 3 Steps to Make Her Squeal With Delight!

One of the hardest things to do as a guy, is to go down on a girl and provide amazing cunnilingus. In all honesty, it does take some practice and some learning on the different techniques that work amazingly well. But there are definitely some things you can do as a beginner to make her squeal in absolute delight. Let’s get started:

1. Warm her up. Don’t dive right in, but rather warm things up by kissing, touching and licking. Slowly make your move downtown. Once you are there you want to continue to warm things up, by kissing and licking the thighs and the vagina area. Once you hear that she’s getting excited, then you can zero in on the clitoris and go to work.

2. Go gentle with a FLAT tongue. You can experiment later with a firmer, more pointed tongue, but for beginners it’s best to use a flat tongue to start with. Girls can be very sensitive and many have stated a firm, pointed tongue can be too harsh. Go gentle and feel her out. If she’s sensitive then take it easy and maneuver slowly.

3. Use this Technique. For a good starter technique, simply focus on tongue circles. Just go round and round with your tongue as if you are making circles. This is a basic, but effective technique. Beyond your circle action you can vary the speed, you can go from small circles to occasional larger circles and then back to small, and you can do spiral circles where you start small and gradually go larger, then reverse it. There are many variations you can perform, just pay attention and see how well she responds to the particular circle technique you are performing.

Railcar Spill Containment – High Absorbency Barriers Are Not Just for Railroad Tracks

Are you wondering whether railcar spill containment is something you could use? If you’re in need of a high absorbency barrier to protect the environment, the answer could well be “Yes.”

When railcar still containment was first developed, specifically in the form of railroad track mats, they were designed to be used between inside and outside railroad tracks. And they are still used that way. After all, railcars can drip and leak oils and other fluids onto the tracks, and into the ground, and that must be prevented.

Where else can you use railcar spill containment?

Obviously, not just railroads are in need for such protection. Once these heavy, thick, and highly absorbent barrier mats became available, they were put to a variety of other uses as well.

For example, railcar spill containment mats are used by a whole range of transportation companies, refineries, utilities, steel mills. In addition, they come in handy in many other environments where leaks and spills are common and must be prevented from seeping into the ground water.

Why would you need specialty mats?

So what makes these types of mats special? Aren’t there other absorbent mats with a lower price tag?

There are other mats available, but as always, you get what you pay for. The benefits of getting the highly absorbent railcar mats is that they only absorb oil, and a lot of it.

Imagine you had a regular all-purpose absorbent mat in an outdoors environment. Now imagine it rains. Immediately, the mat would be saturated — with water! It would no longer be able to do its job, which is absorbing oil and other oil-based chemicals.

When you use a railcar spill containment mat, however, the rain water will simply roll right off and flow into the ground. The oil that is already in the mat won’t be affected, and the mat will retain its full remaining capacity for absorbing what it is supposed to absorb — more oil.

Now think of where else you might be able to use this kind of feature. You could place those mats underneath vehicles of all sorts as well as machinery, especially if they’re parked or used outside.

What makes them so effective?

So what makes them so effective? They have a core that absorbs oil only, and in addition, they are also encased in an impenetrable barrier film, which keeps all absorbed liquids inside the mat so they won’t leach into the environment. Their cover is UV resistant, which means that they will retain their usefulness for a long time.

And just how much can they absorb? How about 3 gallons per square yard! And since it’s conveniently available in pads and rolls, it provides not just flexible railcar spill containment but also protection for a range of other machinery and environments.

Analingus – Best Tips To Consider Sexual Rimming

Just the thought of analplay for some may bring an instant reaction of ‘ick’ or ‘ewh’ especially if you’re one of the many women who’s first encounter with analingus has been by way of a rogue finger prodding your rear without prior consent. Yet done properly between two loving partners analingus can bring you a multitude of wonderful sensations and is also an excellent primer to rectal sex.

If you have not heard of analplay being described as analingus, you may be more familiar with the terms ‘sexual rimming’, ‘tossing the salad’ or ‘licking arse’. Such crude terms are enough to send any nice lady running with her tail squeezed firmly between her legs, but if you are curious and open to new adventures, analingus with the right loving partner can turn from being an unpleasant shock to a very warm and welcome surprise.

Simply, your anus is lined with many delicate nerve endings and when these are stimulated by the tickle of a tantalizing tongue the result can be quite heavenly. The trick to enjoying these new sensations is to love your bum, get over any inhibitions and embrace sexual rimming as an incredibly sensual and intimate act between lovers. It’s the total acceptance of each other’s bodies with no part being off limits that can strengthen bonds and heighten the sense of eroticism.

Speaking of eroticism, another reason analplay feels so deeply sensual is because the pelvic floor muscles lie just below the surface of the anal area. If you squeeze them now you will notice how your anus slightly contracts, and it’s these muscles that compress during orgasm. Analplay including the insertion of sex toys rouses the pelvic floor muscles and intensifies all erotic sensations.

Is Analingus Safe?

Like all forms of sex, precaution does need to be taken when experimenting with analplay. First thing first, you must get clean before sexual rimming. Ensure you both go to the toilet beforehand and then have a shower together. Use warm soapy water to thoroughly clean your anus and you can even insert a soapy finger slightly inside.

It’s important to note that despite all your best efforts at cleaning, there can be times when fecal matter clings on to the anus and skin around it. Although fecal matter is actually stored in the colon and only passes through the rectum when it’s ready to be released all the way out of the body, traces can sometimes remain in the rectum, anal canal and anus after defecation, although these can be washed out.

Don’t get yourself too much in a tizz about this possibility and don’t get too carried away with your cleaning. You can actually damage or tear the soft tissues of skin on your anus if you use too much force. Instead use baby wipes, which are excellent for the gentle cleaning of all skin folds and you also get the added bonus of their pleasant smell.

If this still completely puts you off, you could consider using a Dental Dam which is like a condom for your bum. It acts as a latex barrier between the anus and mouth and while it might not seem very sexy, it will protect you from bacteria and viruses such as HPV, HIV and Hepatitis.

Talk to your partner beforehand, decide if you are going to be the giver or receiver. Using a dental dam might just be the piece of confidence you need to get you on your way to sexual rimming.

How To Give Anal Rimming

When learning how to give anal rimming, or any form of rectal sex, it doesn’t have to be anything you don’t want it to be. The simple caressing, stroking and gentle pressing of a finger around and in the opening of the anus is analinugs enough for some people. Or it’s the gentle flicker of a delicate tongue on the nerve packed area of your anus that is simply bliss for others. Analplay definitely does not have to be about penetration. However if you keen to move on to anal sex, then analingus is essential to prepare your body for penetration.

Like other forms of oral sex, take your time, relax and gradually seduce your partner by massaging their inner thighs or the backs of their legs. Gradually start to lick these areas and use your fingernails to rub around the outside of the bum. Blow on the anus and then apply gentle pressure rubbing around the rim.

The greatest satisfaction comes from tender kisses, loving licks and variations of tongue movements circling in and around igniting all those wonderfully delicate nerve endings.

If your partner permits, you can use both hands to spread the anus wide and then point your tongue and insert it in and out. If you are using your finger, be careful of your nails as any rough edges can nick the delicate skin.

Analplay Positions

If you’re totally new to analplay, positions such as doggy, or bending over may feel too vulnerable and too exposed to begin with. If you are on the receiving end you could start with regular cunnilingus, then as your body becomes more aroused it can be a natural progression for your partner to lick slowly further south. Just be mindful to prevent any bacterial infection that once he hits your bum with his tongue he cannot go back up to your vagina.

Sideways 69 is a good position to start out with. Regular 69 can be a bit tricky for you to get in to a comfortable and accessible position that you can both enjoy, but if you both turn side on, you can massage, lick and suck to your mutual delight.

When you are ready and feel completely comfortable with exposure should you try any of the following positions:

Doggy

Doggy is where the receiver assumes the doggy position kneeling down and the giver kneels behind gently spreads each butt check to reveal the anus.

Standing Bent Over

This one is self explanatory, however you can modify it by the receiver bending over the edge of a bed or chair to maximize comfort for both parties.

Legs Up

In this position the receiver lays on their back with their legs open and bent, knees drawn up to their chest. The giver lays on their stomach in front. This position can be made more comfortable with the receiver laying on the edge of the bed and the giver keeling in front.

Honesty and Integrity – What Does This Mean to You?

Honesty and Integrity go hand-in-hand, but in today’s world, it seems that people have grown so lax that both of these traits have flown out of the window. In fact, if you ask the majority of today’s youth to give you the truest definition of honesty and integrity, they may be able to tell you that being honest means telling the truth, but they probably won’t be able to tell you anymore than that.

Although most people understand what honesty is – telling the truth – do you understand what telling the truth entails? For example, yes it is wrong to lie, but isn’t it also wrong not to tell the whole truth, or the whole story so to speak? Many people believe that withholding portions of the truth is the same as lying, and if you are doing this, you are not practicing honesty.

But, again, if you ask today’s youth about integrity, most won’t have a clue what you are talking about. This is a word that they know how to spell. They have some small idea of what it pertains to, but they have no real grasp on what it means to have integrity, along with honesty. If you have integrity, it means that you live your life in a moral and ethical way. Honesty covers lying, but integrity seemingly covers everything else in life.

Once we grow up, and are forced to face reality, we learn that the world can be a cold, hard, cruel place. As we work our way through life, often we lose site of our own values. We are trying to get the bills paid, get the kids educated, taking care of elderly parents, trying to hold our marriage together, and trying to live to see our own retirement years and grandchildren. With all of this going on – seemingly all of the time – it isn’t hard to lose sight of our values, which in turn affects our honesty and integrity, even if we never intended for that to happen.

Before you can live your life with honesty and integrity, you first need to have a good sense of who you are, and what you stand for in life. We all have strong feelings concerning certain issues, such as abortion, firearms, and things of this nature. But as big as these issues are, these are the easy ones. Here, you are either on one side of the fence, or the other.

But in the small day-to-day things, where do you stand in terms of your values. For example, is your honesty and integrity so great that if you ran a red light, you would pull over the next policeman that you saw and insist that he give you a ticket? The chances are good that you won’t. But if the cashier at the lunch counter gives you too much change, the second you realize it, are you going to give that extra money back? Hopefully your honesty and integrity would come into play, and you would do everything in your power to get that money back to that cashier.

In order to live a life based on honesty and integrity, you must know who you are and what you stand for, and you must also police yourself on a daily basis, ensuring that you aren’t doing anything that conflict’s with your own values or moral code.

Male Chastity Belt – The Pros and Cons of a Full Belt

A full male chastity belt or a small, more convenient cage or tube? That’s the choice men and women have to make once they’ve taken the decision to control and deny the man’s orgasms through male chastity.

First let’s look at the

Full male chastity belt – Pros

There’s no denying they’re secure, if you’re prepared to invest in a high-quality one. You can get “off the shelfmodels, but there’s no doubt you really do get what you pay for and the hand-made and made to measure belts like the Tollyboy, the Neosteel belts and the formidable Latowski are both incredibly secure and extremely high quality. Generally a full belt is made from surgical-grade stainless steel and finished to a high quality. I suppose it’s possible to get them made from titanium, but I don’t know anyone who’s making one and the price would be horrendous!

I had my husband, John, locked in a Tollyboy for some time and while no device is 100% secure, they’re as secure as anything else on the market. Probably the most secure belt on the market is the Latowski, but you pay for what you get…

A well-made belt is also comfortable and safe to wear, even for long periods of time. I’ve corresponded with men who are kept in very secure male chastity belts for months on end, and then after being released for visual inspection, are locked up again. In other words, their lockup in these belts is to all intents and purposes permanent (as is their orgasm denial, but that’s another thing…).

And finally… there’s the psychological aspects. Many men report a profound feeling of submission when they’re locked in a full male chastity belt, not just because they are no longer in control of their orgasms, but because they can no longer even see their penis. If you’re into male submission, then a full male chastity belt is virtually certain to enhance your experience.

Full male chastity belt – Cons

A full belt is often inconvenient — they can be the very devil to get on and off (not necessarily something that happens often – but it can be a problem if you travel by air frequently); what’s more, if you’re heavily into sports (John is a keen cyclist and also lifts weights), then they can effectively make it impossible unless you take them off. Most designs of male chastity belt are also very sensitive to weight-loss and weight-gain (one reasons I took John out of his Tollyboy and replaced it with a Lori cage is he lost even more weight and it became too small).

Aesthetically — and this is purely my opinion, so you make your own mind up — while there is something sexy and exciting about seeing your man’s penis completely locked away from his access, on balance I prefer to see him in the minimalist confinement of a cage (John has a lovely lean, tanned and muscular body and to me it’s a shame to hide it under steel chastity belt).

In terms of price, a full belt is generally more expensive than a cage or tube, and you should expect to pay anything from $800 or more for a Tollyboy and well over $1,500 for a Latowski. Be prepared to wait, too, because some belt makers — craftsmen, really — have a waiting list of several months. It can be tricky measuring yourself, too, because there are many measurements to make and they all have to be just right.

On the other hand, a Lori cage isn’t cheap and there’s a waiting list for those, too, so perhaps this isn’t such a big consideration. However there are fewer measurements to make (just 3) and they’re much easier to take, too.

Why Does My Dog’s Vomit Smell Like Poop?

Most dog owners think once their puppy reaches a certain age; they don’t have to be as concerned about everything that goes into their mouth. Not true! Even though puppies and younger dogs are the most common victims of intestinal obstruction, older dogs can also be at risk.

Be aware, if your dog’s vomit smells like stools, your dog is in a serious, life-threatening situation. What you smell is feces, that has backed up, and cannot pass normally, due to a blockage!

Most Common Causes of Intestinal Blockage

The major cause if this symptom is an obstruction or severe trauma to the lower gastrointestinal tract. The larger or sharper the obstruction, the more risk your dog faces of perforation, rupture and peritonitis.

Veterinarians have removed an extraordinary array of objects from our canine companions gut! They include, but are not limited to, coins, hearing aids, retainers, marbles, socks, T-shirts, batteries, rawhide, unchewed biscuits, bones, plastic wrap, tin foil, children’s toys, rope, twine, bully sticks, balls (including a whole golf ball!), towels, wood, blankets, toy stuffing, cat litter, yarn, pins, jewelry, and nails/screw,

Signs and Symptoms

Symptoms usually appear within 7 hours after ingesting the item However, it may take days in some cases, before the you notice there is a problem. The most common warning signs indicating something is wrong are intermittent vomiting, diarrhea, dehydration, lack of appetite, pale gums, bleeding, weakness, lethargy, electrolyte imbalance, shock, and possibly death.

Owners often get a false sense the obstruction has passed if their pet has diarrhea. Don’t be fooled. Diarrhea can work itself around a blockage.

As a rule, upper gastrointestinal obstructions usually cause projectile vomiting.

Lower gastrointestinal obstructions commonly cause a distended abdomen and vomit that smells like feces.

Intestinal strangulation blocks the flow of oxygen and blood, causing gangrene of the intestines.

Death can occur in a matter of hours.

Diagnosis/Prognosis

The sooner your pet is examined and the object is removed, the sooner the recovery process will start. Your veterinarian will exam your dog by palpating the abdominal area to check for distension and tenderness. They will examine the gums to see if they are pale. They may suggest an x-ray, to identify the item, and locate the blockage.

Depending on the severity of the obstruction, or if there are factors that complicate the situation, such as perforation, rupture, peritonitis or necrosis, most dogs recover fairly quickly.

Treatments

The treatment usually depends on the size, shape, how long the item has been ingested, and whether there is any rupture or perforation. Treatment to remove the object could be as simple as your veterinarian inducing vomiting, or retrieving the object with an endoscope. Do not attempt to induce vomiting yourself.

Most likely, your dog will be dehydrated. Your veterinarian may use IV therapy to rehydrate and antibiotics, to prevent secondary infection. They will also most likely recommend rest, and a liquid or soft diet, before moving on to your dog’s regular diet.

If the object has passed your dog’s pylorus (where the stomach connects to the small intestines), surgery is required. Post surgery requires rest, IV therapy, antibiotics, and observation for leakage, followed by liquid diet, to soft food, to regular diet. They probably will have to stay at the animal hospital for a day or two following surgery.

Bottom line: Always check what your puppy or dog has in their mouth! Supervise what your dog is chewing, especially if they are aggressive or obsessive chewers. If the object is small enough to get caught in their throat, throw it out! If you know they are sneaky thieves, make sure objects they should not have access to are well out of their reach. Do not take any risks, if their vomit smells like poop, get help immediately!

7 Ways to Make Love to Your Man’s Mind So That He Falls Deeper in Love

1. Give him that sexy look from time to time. When you look at him, make him feel that you want to make love to him. It is all in the eyes. For example, when he is getting dressed in the morning and you are in bed, let him know that you are looking at him. Let your eyes make him feel that he is the hottest guy you know.

2. When you talk to him make let him know that you love him with all your heart. Speak kind and caring words to him — they go a long way to open a man ‘s heart so that he can shower you with passionate love.

3. Support his passions. When you make your man feel that you “have his back”, he will go to the ends of the earth to do anything for you. He will fall in love with all his heart and soul.

4. Make him feel needed. Invite him to participate in important decision that will affect your life. When you make him feel that he is an indispensable part of your life, he feels appreciated, and he will appreciate and love you in return.

5. Be affectionate. Touch him, kiss him, and hug him daily. The mind and body are connected. When you do things that make his body feel good, his mind will react positively toward you.

6. Always be ready to forgive and forget. When he does something that hurts you and he apologizes to you, don’t hold his misdeeds against him. And most importantly don’t shove it in his face at the slightest provocation. When you forgive him, he will love you even more.

7. Do not nag him. Your man will never do all things you want him to do when you want him to do them. So with that in mind, go easy on him when he forgets to do some things you asked him to do. When you go easy on him, he finds it much easier to overlook some of your imperfections and love you just the way you are.

Making love to a man ‘s mind is all about how you treat him from the time you get up until the time you go to bed. When you make love to his mind daily, he will bend over backwards to love you with all his heart and soul.

Full Tilt Poker Saga Hurts Whole E-Gaming Sector

The tribulations being faced by Full Tilt Poker at present are no doubt being watched with barely understood schadenfreude by some of its competitors in the Internet gambling sector. But the events of the last few months concerned PokerStars and Full Tilt reflect badly on the entire e-gaming market.

All e-commerce is based on consumer trust but within online gambling the dependence on trust is even more crucial. Online gambling companies do not make anything or sell anything physical. They simply hold players' money and move that money around based on the event of events being they sports events or RNG-based events. Trust is a fragile commodity and anything that threatens it affects the entire e-gaming sector.

Look at recent events involving PokerStars and FullTilt from the ordinary European players' point of view.

One Friday evening (European time) in April 2011 that they logged into their account only to find that the US Department of Justice had located the domain name.

Then for FullTilt players, many were faced with a "system update" message at the end of June 2011 saying the system is down and giving an email address as a point of contact.

Most players in Europe simply do not follow regulatory events as closely as those working in the industry do, so these events would have been both confusing and worrying.

Both FullTilt and PokerStars are very high profile e-gaming firms in the UK, broadly advertising on television and in print, as well as sponsoring televised poker tournaments. Regardless of the reality of the situation, many consumers will take the attitude that if it can happen to these two high-profile e-gaming websites, why should not it happen to any other gambling site? This in turn may influence consumer behavior on e-gaming sites and their trust in them – possibly keeping lower amounts of funds in their accounts, for example, or allocating to deposit funds at all.

For consumers there is always a sense of anxiety when a business' website experiences trouble – not just in e-gaming but any sector. This sense of anxiety is heightened when it is an "Internet only" business without a high-street presence.

It is Gambling Consultancy assessment that a "clicks and mortar" strategy will be the most beneficial in years to come. This strategy could mean betting shops on the high-street, casinos, bingo halls, or, of course, lottery outlets. A state lottery is often a brand highly reliable by consumers and with an intensive presence on the high-street. They will be well-placed to take advantage of the "clicks and mortar strategy".

Many former "offshore" online gambling companies have undergone a Damascene conversion in the last few years. They now clamour to be regulated and taxed by every government in Europe rather than enjoy the benefits of low-tax offshore jurisdictions. As such, they have lost all the advantages that they had over their land-based counterparts. If you are going to be taxed as highly as a land-based gambling operation why not get some of the benefits of a land-based business too and get a presence on the high-street to give consumers greater trust in your brand?

Sperm Taste – 10 Simple Tips For Better Tasting Semen

Sperm taste is affected by what you eat, as are all secretions from the body.

It is a fact that your sperms taste can be improved and making your semen taste better, can be done with a few simple diet changes.

The make up of sperm

Semen is made up of ninety percent (90%) seminal fluids including fructose (sugar) protein, and various trace minerals and nutrients.

The PH of semen is 7 and scientifically neutral, yet it tastes slightly acidic. Let’s take a look at the actual ingredients of semen.

A man’s ejaculate is actually only 1% sperm.

The rest is composed of various proteins, vitamins, sugars, salts, cholesterol, and water. All the extras are what protect, feeds, fuels the sperm in its journey.

As you can see in terms of semen’s composition, it’s fairly obvious that what you eat will make it taste better or worse!

Getting a sweeter taste

Your aim with your diet is to eat one that helps your overall health and the above recommendations will not only make your semen taste better you will also feel fitter and healthier as well.

Keep in mind that you can eat some of the foods we don’t recommend for sperm taste.

What you put into your body takes between 12 and 24 hours to secrete out and you should simply keep this in mind before eating and deciding whether you want a better sperm taste on that particular day or not!

This Indicator Warned Us Before Every Bear Market

Stocks are selling off. Is this the beginning of a bear market, or just a long overdue pullback?

Traders try to forecast market action with indicators. Some indicators are elaborate. Others are simple. Over time, the simple ones tend to be more useful.

This might be surprising. Many of us think Wall Street is using sophisticated tools to make money. It is.

As individuals, we can’t compete with its sophisticated techniques. That’s why day traders tend to lose money. Wall Street firms are trading in nanoseconds, and our data feeds can’t process information that quickly.

But big Wall Street firms also use simple tools to make money. Many long-term trend-following strategies use simple ideas. And we can use these same tools to ride big trends in the stock market.

The Advance-Decline Line

One tool many large firms use is the advance-decline line. The advance-decline line indicator subtracts the number of stocks that closed down every day (declines) from the number that closed up (advances).

If you look at the market action before significant declines, in each case, the A-D line was in a downtrend before the S&P 500 turned lower. This happened before bear markets that led to losses of 50% or more in 1972, 1999 and 2007. It also happened before the 1987 crash.

The A-D line simply counts how many stocks are going up. In a bull market, we expect most stocks to be going up. In a bear market, the majority of stocks should be going down. That is a simple idea, but, as the charts show, it’s an important indicator to follow.

Near market tops, we see fewer stocks going up. The index is moving up because just a few large stocks are producing gains.

In 2007, housing stocks and financials were still moving up after most stocks peaked.

In 1999, internet stocks were the market leaders while most stocks were in downtrends.

In 1987, traders were buying just the largest stocks for a strategy called portfolio insurance. That insurance failed spectacularly in October.

In 1972, the Nifty Fifty became popular, and investment managers bought just the 50 largest companies.

Narrow buying always leads to a sell-off. That means we should watch the A-D line for an advance warning signal of the next bear market.

The S&P 500 and the Advance-Decline line are in synch. As long as they remain in sync, a bear market is unlikely. We might see a pullback, which is a decline of 5% to 10%. But that will be a chance to buy more stocks and prepare for the next upturn.

Differences Between Damask, Brocade, and Jacquard

Often times, uneducated individuals use the terms damask, brocade, and Jacquard interchangeably with one another. It can often confuse those who are unfamiliar with the world of fabrics. Jacquard is a decorative or woven pattern that is created by using a Jacquard attachment on a loom. The attachment resembles the punch card on a piano. It is purported to offer better versatility and fabric control for the operator of the loom. The Jacquard technique can be applied to a variety of fabrics, and it is commonly used on brocade and damask fabrics. It is commonly used in a variety of apparel and home goods, from tablecloths to bedding.

Brocade is defined as a lavishly decorated, shuttle woven fabric. It is primarily woven from silk; although, it is possible to find brocade constructed from a blend of silk and synthetic fibers. Often, it will be embroidered with gold or silver thread. Brocade can trace its origins back to India, where weaving is a traditional art form. It is typically woven on a loom, and it may or may not be woven using the Jacquard technique. It is also characterized by the manner in which the brocaded or broached parts of the fabric hang in loose groups or are clipped away. Although the scenes and patterns on brocade appear to have been embroidered, the scenes are actually woven into the fabric using advanced weaving techniques that involve manipulating the weft and weave of the fabric. The most common types of scenes depicted on brocade fabric are those of floral prints.

Damask, similarly to brocade, is a fabric that features woven scenes of floral patterns, intricate geometric designs, or simple scenes of domestic life. It may be woven of silk, wool, linen, cotton, or synthetic fibers. However, it is most commonly created from silk. It is primarily different from brocade in the fact that its woven fabric pattern is reversible, while that of brocade is not. Similarly, shorter weft patterns in damask allow for more subtle effects in the fabric to be created as it plays off of shadow and light. Damask weaves also contain a higher thread count than that of brocade. Double damask weaves are the highest quality of damask produced; however, it is also the most expensive.

Body Basics: Alimentary Canal – How the Digestive System Works

Food is the fuel of the body. But before it can be of any use, it must be properly processed. The body’s food processing plant is the alimentary canal, a muscular tube about 10 m (33ft) long which starts at the mouth and ends at the anus.

When food is put in the mouth, it is tested for taste and temperature by the tongue. Solid food is bitten off by the front teeth (incisors), and then chewed by the back teeth or molars. Even before the food is tasted, and during chewing, saliva pours into the mouth from salivary glands near the lower jaw.

Saliva moistens food, and the enzymes it contains start digestion. By the time it is ready to be swallowed; the original mouthful has been transformed into a soft ball, called a bolus, and warmed or cooled to the right temperature.

Though quick, this stage is in fact quite complex. First the tongue pushes the bolus of food up against the roof of the mouth and into the muscle-lined cavity at the back of the mouth: the pharynx. Once food is in the pharynx, several activities take place within the space of a couple of seconds to prevent swallowing from interfering with breathing.

From the pharynx, the bolus now passes into the oesophagus, or gullet, the tube joining the mouth to the stomach. The bolus does not just fall down the oesophagus because of gravity but is pushed along by waves of muscle action called peristalsis.

Except during eating, the oesophagus is kept closed by a ring of muscles called the cardiac sphincter which prevents the highly acid contents of the stomach from being regurgitated into the oesophagus. As a bolus of food passes down the oesophagus, the sphincter relaxes to open the pathway into the stomach.

The stomach is a collapsible muscular bag designed to store food (so that it is not usually necessary to eat small meals all day long), to mix food with various digestive juices, then to release it slowly into the intestine.

Food is mixed as the stomach wall contracts and relaxes and is moved along by waves of peristalsis. By the time it has spent two to six hours being processed in the stomach, the partially digested food has been converted by various chemicals to a liquid called chyme.

The stomach exit is guarded by a muscle known as the pyloric sphincter. As the waves of peristalsis push chyme through the stomach, the sphincter lets out chyme in small amounts into the small intestine.

The small intestine is in fact the longest section of the alimentary canal, measuring 20ft (6m) and getting its name not from its length but its width – about 1 ½ in. (4cm). The largest part of the digestive process takes place in the small intestine, through the action of digestive juices made not only by the intestine itself, but by the liver (bile) and the pancreas (pancreatic secretions).

As waves of peristalsis move chime along the small intestine, it is given another thorough mixing. When more food enters the stomach, a valve at the end of the small intestine opens and chyme passes into the large intestine, a tube about 3ft (1.5m) long and an average 7.5 cm (3 in.) in diameter.

In the large intestine, water is absorbed into the blood from the liquid remains of digestion. By the time these remains reach the rectum, they are in the form of solid faeces. Rather than the continuous contractions of peristalsis, the progressively more solid remains are moved along by giant propulsions that take place only a few times a day.

Finally, faeces enter the anal canal, which is kept closed by the last sphincter in the alimentary canal. In infancy, the sphincter opens automatically when the anal canal is full. But as the nervous system matures, we learn to override the automatic signals.

The alimentary canal processes approximately 35 tons of food during the course of an average life of 70 years. No wonder, then, that it sometimes goes wrong. Some ills of the alimentary canal are so common they have become household words – ulcers, appendicitis, constipation, diarrhoea and heartburn, to name a few. While some are unavoidable, there are ways to keep the digestive system healthy.

  • Do not eat (or feed children) too much. This puts a strain on the digestion and can create a weight problem. In infants it can lead to vomiting and regurgitation.
  • Chew your food properly before swallowing. The digestion of carbohydrates starts in the mouth with ptyalin, an enzyme in saliva.
  • Include sufficient roughage in your diet – fruit with the skin on, lightly cooked vegetables, bran with your breakfast cereal. Dietary fibre cannot be digested by the alimentary canal but stimulates the passage of food through the large intestine, helping to prevent constipation and perhaps some intestinal diseases as well.
  • Avoid any foods you know you or your family react to badly.
  • Minimize stress. This increases the acid secretion of the stomach and the muscular action of the whole system, causing food to be pushed along too fast so that it is not properly digested.
  • Stop smoking, cut down, because, like stress, it stimulates acid secretion.
