  • I am in the middle of going to school, and living with roommates was becoming a problem. I take my schoolwork very seriously, while they spend a lot of time messing around and partying. I needed a place of my own quickly, and it needed to be affordable, too. One of my school counselors told me about Hernon Walk Apartments nearby, so I figured I would start looking there first.

    I do not own a car, so it was important that I find a place that is on a bus line so that I can get to and from school, the store or anywhere else I need to go very easily. I own a cat, so I needed a pet-friendly place. I am also a young female, so a place that was safe is something that I have to keep in mind when living anywhere, too.

    I spoke with the apartment manager at the place my school counselor told me about. Read the rest of this entry »

  • I am sick of having to buy everything that I need for medical supplies and the like at the local store. It just seems like they gouge me on all of the prices. The problem is that there is not another store for quite a way from here and so I have always gone there out of convenience. I have now been browsing apoteket 24 because it might be a better option for me to simply go online to this web store and to buy my stuff there, so I can have it delivered, and save myself the trouble of a trip to the store in the first place.

    I think that is a good option, considering that I can already see that the prices are lower here, and so much so that it is going to offset any increased price for ordering through this site that would be incurred through added delivery fees. Of course, I do not even know if they charge delivery or if they have free delivery. But either way, I am pretty sure that it is going to be worthwhile to start ordering things form this site.

    At least certain things that I buy on a regular, monthly basis, would be better to be bought online, than to go to that store that is closest to my house. I really do not like driving anyway, because I am getting kind of old, and sometimes I do not trust myself behind the wheel. The issue is mostly my vision, as I do not see so well anymore and that is why I get kind of nervous when I go out driving. For that reason, I stick to driving in the middle of the day, when there is the most light out, and I don’t drive in bad weather either.

  • I have lived without a television in my apartment for close to five years now. It has been kind of strange, and it was hard to get used to at first. I will admit that I missed it at first. But then I got used to not having one. Now I make more money, and I bought a television, and now what is left to do is to get service for the television. I am checking out in the hopes of learning about current deals on getting satellite television.

    I have no idea what to expect in terms of pricing. That is obviously because it has been so long since I have paid for television. I am sure things have changed a lot in the last five years. I am not even sure what I will find when I look at modern television shows. I am sure there will be some good ones, but it will be different, to be sure. Read the rest of this entry »

  • When my neighbor made pumpkin treats for her new dog, I wasn’t sure that was such a good idea. I know there are a lot of things that dogs cannot eat or it can make them sick. I wasn’t sure if pumpkin was on the same list that other foods are on, such as onions, grapes, and chocolate. I decided to go online to make sure, because I wanted to let her know either way. I found out that there are actually a lot of health benefits of pumpkin for dogs and puppies, and it convinced me to start making my own dogs pumpkin treats too.

    It is hard to believe that pumpkin is so healthy for them. I have never really considered the bowel habits of my dogs before because they have always been normal that way. As they get older though, I read that this can change. Pumpkin is one of the best treatments for this because it is filled with fiber. Anytime I get constipated, the first thing I do is add more fiber to my diet. It is the same for dogs, which really surprised me. Read the rest of this entry »

  • My neighbor and I both have gout. Could be that we both have it because he is my brother. Okay, enough kidding. I know gout can be really painful. However, I noticed that I was having more attacks of it than my brother, my neighbor, was having. I was missing some work days because of flareups with gout, and he was not missing anything any longer. I was at his house one day a couple of months ago. We sat down at his computer, and he told me to look over here at a website that talks a lot about gout and foods and drinks that can make it worse or a bit better.

    I used to get gout flareups about twice per year. Now I get them about four or five times. My brother went from a twice per year gout problem to no problems in the past year and a half. He said he really restricts purines in his diet. Read the rest of this entry »

  • When it comes to traveling in style, it is pretty hard to beat a limousine. Even the fanciest cars do not have the same impression as a limo with a driver. Usually only celebrities and rich people drive around in limos, but they can also be rented out on a short term basis for special nights or celebrations. This can include everything from prom night and graduation to simple nights on the towns with friends or birthday celebrations. Of course not all limo rentals are the same though, but Paradise Toronto limo definitely stands out as one of the best options on the market.

    There are a lot of factors that go into determining the best option for these kinds of services, and some of the details can be a bit of personal preference. Of course the most basic demand is that the service be very professional, as nobody wants to have a driver show up late, be rude, or be poorly dressed. When trying to make a great impression every detail accounts and things like late arrivals can put a huge damper on even the most exciting of nights. In some cases it can even cause problems to be late, so obviously timely handling of transportation can be crucial.

    Of course making a good impression is about more than just the driver, as the car itself can be a huge advantage or disadvantage as well. This is why this company focuses on having a great line of vehicles, ranging from more traditional options to the SUV’s and party buses. They have most vehicles in black and white, but they also even boast a pink SUV to really spice things up. All of the cars are spotless and clean, yet reliable and perform well to ensure that riders will enjoy every bit of it.

    Tollgrade participates in Ofgem funded projects that will deliver cost and safety benefits to UK consumers.

    ABERDEEN, Scotland, United Kingdom (LCNI Conference) (PRWEB) October 21, 2014

    Tollgrade Communications, Inc., the industry leader in redefining the global standard for reliability at the worlds largest electric utilities and telecommunications providers, announced today that is actively engaged in Ofgem funded projects with Western Power Distribution (WPD), Scottish and Southern Energy Power Distribution (SSEPD) and Community Energy Scotland. WPD will deploy Tollgrade LightHouse Sensors to monitor network capacity and renewables to avoid building expensive new infrastructure and reduce the cost passed onto UK consumers. SSEPD is spearheading a first-of-its kind project that will use Tollgrade LightHouse Sensors to monitor medium voltage overhead lines for collisions to better and more proactively protect public safety from accidental contact with overhead lines. Community Energy Scotland will assist the procurement and operation of sensors by community-owned generators enabling participants to see the power flows within their local networks; a vital element in developing local energy systems. These projects are important to UK consumers because they will help keep the costs of energy delivery down, improve public safety and combat global climate change by reducing the UKs carbon footprint.

    Distribution Network Operators (DNOs) are using LightHouse Smart Grid Sensors and Predictive Grid Analytics software to drive many innovative projects that we are not seeing anywhere else in the world, said Edward H. Kennedy, President and CEO, Tollgrade Communications. These projects are noteworthy because they will enable more resilient, self-reliant networks in the UK while benefiting consumers.

    SSEPDs Project Intends to Detect Accidental Collisions

    SSEPD delivers electricity to over 3.7 million customers across its distribution regions in northern Scotland and central southern England. SSEPD has many rural locations in its operating region, particularly in Scotland, where overhead electricity lines cross forest roads, access ways, farm roads, footpaths and rivers that are difficult to monitor in real-time. In these rural areas, early visibility and detection of accidental collisions with overhead lines can minimise the disruption of electricity supply to customers and assist the utility to take steps to safeguard the public against dangerous conditions caused by overhead line collisions. To deliver this 710,000 project, SSEPD and Tollgrade have entered into a joint agreement under the Ofgem Innovation Funding Incentive (IFI) mechanism; more information about this project can be found online at:

    Rural overhead lines are susceptible to inadvertent contact by vehicles, fishing rods and even kites, especially when crossing roads and tracks in remote areas of farm land and forest, said Steward Reid, Future Networks Manager, SSEPD. This IFI funded project allows SSEPD to work with Tollgrade to design a monitoring solution that is capable of observing overhead line collisions, providing us with information that we can use to take measures to proactively protect public safety.

    Meeting Renewables and Low Carbon Initiatives

    The energy mix in the United Kingdom is changing quickly to meet low carbon initiatives and mandates. WPD and Community Energy Scotland are expecting changes in the way electricity flows through their distribution network as consumers adopt more low-carbon technologies, including electric vehicles and renewable generation sources.

    As one of seven DNOs in the United Kingdom responsible for delivering electricity to the Midlands, South Wales, and the South West, WPD delivers electricity to more than 7.8 million customers over a 55,500 square kilometer service area. Tollgrade supplied overhead line sensors to WPD as part of WPDs Flexible Approaches to Low Carbon Optimised Networks (FALCON) project, a 16 million Ofgem funded program that aims to improve the industrys understanding of infrastructure needs in a low-carbon environment. The project is proving out the value proposition of monitoring the distribution network to better understand how the network could adapt when renewables are introduced and to understand how to get more capacity out of the current infrastructure. A video with background information on the project is available:

    Community Energy Scotland was formed in 2007 as a member-based charity, comprising over 300 community and 150 associate business members. Community Energy Scotland aims to assist local communities to build their resources and resilience, through ownership of local renewable generation and associated energy services.

    Community Energy Scotland will assist a number of community energy groups in the Inner Hebrides experiencing constrained local grids to procure these sensors. said Benny Talbot, Development Officer Local Energy Economies, Community Energy Scotland. The sensors will provide real-time monitoring of power flows on the local grid, and should allow the community groups to work with the local District Network Operators to explore ways to safely bring on and control new community-owned renewable generation.

    Demonstrations at Low Carbon Networks & Innovation (LCNI) Conference in Aberdeen, Scotland

    Tollgrades LightHouse Line Sensors that measure voltage, current and power (real, reactive and apparent) will be on display in stand S24 at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre in Scotland during the LCNI conference running the 20-22 of October 2014.

  • You probably will not be able to find the exact property you want so learn to be flexible. You may not be able to afford the perfect house in the perfect community, but you may be able to afford one or the other. If you can’t find the perfect house in the perfect area, look for it in an adequate area or find an adequate house in a perfect area.

    If you are looking for piece of property and find one with a view you love, do not overpay just for the view. Even if you love the view, and you want to sell it later on, the buyer might not agree. Purchasing a new house for the view is great, but don’t pay too much for it. Make sure that you carefully read and understand all aspects of your lease agreement before signing it. Many people assume that all that is on the lease is what the landlord has mentioned and many times there are other things there that are written in fine print. Once you sign it you will have no legal recourse, so read it thoroughly.

    An important tip to remember with real estate purchasing is to try to increase your credit score as much as possible before applying for a loan. This is important because your credit score directly effects your A.P.R., which can result in the savings or losses of thousands of dollars. Anything from checking for errors on your report, to ensuring that you aren’t carrying a high balance on any individual credit card, will help to bring your score up.

    When you choose a real estate agent, ask how many years they have been involved in the community you are interested in. If they haven’t been on the job or in the area for that long then they won’t be as up to speed on local restrictions, roads, and schools as someone else would. It is ideal to search for an agent that has actually been in the local area for a decade. The tips and suggestions outlined above will help you in your decision-making process. Follow them to learn more about how to get the most for your money. Make sure that you are confident in your real estate purchase. Investing in the real estate market is a great way to make some money. Right now you can find houses that will not cost a lot, and then resell them when the market turns around. You could also find a house that needs some work done, do the work, and sell it for more than what you paid for it. When you have kids, or are planning to start a family in the future, make sure you buy a home that can accommodate everyone. Be mindful of safety issues as well, such as swimming pools, other bodies of water close by, and steep stairs in the home. You are more likely to buy a safer home if you purchase from parents who raised kids there. When purchasing a house, it’s important to think about why the real estate in the area you’re looking in costs so little or so much. If you’re a bachelor without any plans to start a family, a town with excellent public schools will have much higher real estate values, and higher taxes, thus probably isn’t the best place to live. It can be well worth your while to purchase a home warranty. Get a warranty from the builder if the home is new, or from the last owner if the house is not. The builder needs to stand by what he or she has done for a minimum period of time. Likewise, serious sellers are usually willing to cover the cost of the warranty to ensure your repair costs are covered. A period of one year is not unreasonable for the warranty.

    When you are interested in buying a home you should always shop around for the best mortgage and deals. There are several places that you can choose from such as banks, mortgage lenders, credit unions, housing agency mortgages, local and state programs, and mortgage assistance programs. When you look around you will know that you are getting the best deals out there. Prior to making any offer on a property, be sure to hire an inspector to look over every part of the home. Nothing is quite as disheartening as moving into a home and six months later finding out that the foundation is failing. Check the inspector’s credentials, performance history and references before settling on one to inspect your investment.

    Make a list of features and amenities that you want in a home before you start your house hunting. It can be very easy to become so wrapped up in what each property offers, that you forget what it is you really need. Make your list and take it with you to each showing, crossing off each thing to make sure that this house will work for you. When purchasing real estate, you should be realistic in thinking about your resale options. If you are not going to stay in the home for the duration of the mortgage, like many first time buyers tend not to do, then weigh the cost vs. resale of the property, so you have a clear idea of the life of the purchase.

    Before you begin the home-buying process, safeguard yourself against disappointment by getting pre-qualified or pre-approved. Doing so will give you a realistic idea of your financial resources – how much you can feasibly borrow. This makes it easy for you to determine up front which properties you should tour and which might be out of your price range.

    1. Berlin-based Artist Michael Sailstorfer Honored by Winerys Contemporary Art Program

      (PRWEB) October 24, 2014

      Marchesi de Frescobaldi, the 700 year-old winemaking company from Tuscany, announced Berlin-based artist Michael Sailstorfer as the winner of its second annual program in support of contemporary art, Artisti per Frescobaldi. The ceremony took place at the Schinkel Pavillon in Berlin on October 9th.

      The judging panel comprised renowned personalities of the contemporary art world in Italy and Germany, including Dirk Luckow (Deichtorhalle, Hamburg), Angelika Nollert (Neues Museum, Nuremberg), and Letizia Ragaglia (Museion, Bolzano). Contestants Michael Sailstorfer and Jorinde Voigt (Germany) and Yuri Ancarani (Italy), three talented up and coming artists of the contemporary art scene, created pieces inspired by the Nipozzano Castle, the historical estate near Florence owned by the Frescobaldi family. Sailstorfers winning piece, Akt 1-5, 2014, depicts a man drawing with a bottle of Frescobaldi wine.

      Designed by the art director Tiziana Frescobaldi and curated by Ludovico Pratesi, the Artists for Frescobaldi award represents the Frescobaldis longstanding patronage of the arts. The family has been linked to art and artists for 700 years, including past connections with Donatello, Michelozzo Michelozzi, and Filippo Brunelleschi. With Artists for Frescobaldi, Tiziana Frescobaldi hopes the tradition is carried on for years to come.

      Our family is very proud of this program; it shows dedication to continuing our long passion for the arts. Were happy to support young emerging artists, especially in these challenging times, said Tiziana Frescobaldi. Commenting on the art works, Ludovico Pratesi added: “As the curator I would like to congratulate the three artists for the great quality of their projects. I am pleased with the choice of the jury as Akt 1-5, 2014 is mature and full of symbolic meanings.”

      In addition, the three artists designed one label each for a limited-edition 2011 Montesodi, a single-vineyard Toscana IGT produced by Frescobaldi in the Nipozzano estate. Each label will adorn 333 of the 999 globally available Magnum bottles.

      The art works will be exhibited at Fondazione Stelline in Milan (January 15th to 17th 2015), then transferred to the Nipozzano estate in Tuscany.

      3. Blue Notes.
        Image by Neil. Moralee
        In jazz and blues, a blue note is a note sung or played at a slightly lower pitch than that of the major scale for expressive purposes. Typically the alteration is a semitone or less, but this varies among performers and genres.

        "Like the blues in general, the blue notes can mean many things. One quality that they all have in common, however, is that they are flatter than one would expect, classically speaking. But this flatness may take several forms. On the one hand, it may be a microtonal affair of a quarter-tone or so. Here one may speak of neutral intervals, neither major nor minor. On the other hand, the flattening may be by a full semitone–as it must be, of course, on keyboard instruments. It may involve a glide, either upward or downward. Again, this may be a microtonal, almost imperceptible affair, or it may be a slur between notes a semitone apart, so that there is actually not one blue note but two. A blue note may even be marked by a microtonal shake of a kind common in Oriental music. The degrees of the mode treated in this way are, in order of frequency, the third, seventh, fifth, and sixth."

        Blue notes are used in many blues songs, in jazz, and in conventional popular songs with a "blue" feeling, such as Harold Arlens "Stormy Weather." Blue notes are also prevalent in English folk music. Bent or "blue notes", called in Ireland "long notes", play a vital part in Irish music.

    3. Pay attention to how much light your indoor plants are getting. If you’re living in a home that doesn’t receive much sunlight, you should consider growing plants that thrive in environments with low to medium amounts of light. If you simply must have a plant that has higher requirements for sunlight, you can use indoor UV lamps. Be aware of seasons and climates when you are watering, and change accordingly. Knowing how much to water your plants can be a difficult task. You will want to look into various things, such as time of day, quality of water and type of soil. In warm climates with high humidity, for instance, plants often develop fungal infections when water is applied to the leaves. A better method is to water the root system only. You can get fertilizer by making compost from scratch. A fun way that this can be done is by placing small worms in a compost bin. Take scraps from the dinner table and some bits of newspaper, and put them in a bin with some wiggler worms. As you are aware now, there is homework to be done and energy to be expended in setting up a real organic garden. For the best possible results, one must be willing to put forth a lot of energy into their gardening. If you use the advice in this article, you will soon see great results from your organic garden. You can keep bugs out of your organic garden by planting garlic in different areas. The smell of garlic will deter insects from inhabiting your garden. You want to plant these especially around the perimeter, as well as near those plants prone to insect damage. Garlic also has the added benefit of being a great raw ingredient for home cooked meals. A diversity of materials can be used to construct raised beds. These include brick, stone, and wood. If you are to use wood, you should make sure that the wood is not treated and is also naturally rot resistant. The most popular options for this type of project are cypress, locust and cedar woods. Consider the chemicals that will leach out of the wood before choosing anything that has been treated. Remember the affect that such chemicals will have on your plants and soil. If the ground cover you’ve used already contained treated lumber, line it with a barrier of some form.

      Make sure you look at what lies beneath in order to start off on the right foot. When you are purchasing tomato seedlings for your organic garden, you should watch out for lush green starts with bad root systems. These starts will stick around on the main plant for several weeks, hindering the growth of the seedling as long as they are present.

      Organic foods are beneficial because they have not been contaminated by pesticides. Even though you are providing a much healthier option for your family, it is important to recognize the increased need for insect inspection.

      Transform your organic garden into a shade garden. You will be happy to learn that gardens of this type are relatively easy to maintain. They will require much less watering, which saves a lot of work and time. While the plants in shade gardens grow slower, so do the weeds.

      Now you should be much more prepared when it comes to organic gardening. Even veteran organic gardeners might have learned a thing or two. Use the advice you have been given to make your organic garden bloom like never before. The ambient temperate of a room with live plants should be kept between sixty-five and seventy-five degrees throughout the day. The temperature needs to remain steady and warm so the plants can grow. If you think it would not be comfortable to keep your residence that warm in the winter, consider purchasing a heat lamp to use on the plants. When planting seeds in containers, remember that the depth should be at least three times bigger than the seed. Certain seeds are an exception to that rule, since they require sunlight to germinate, so they should be barely covered or not at all. Typical examples are petunias and ageratum. If you aren’t sure, look online or at the package.

      You can kill weeds naturally. Layer sheets of newspaper on the surface of areas where you are trying to control weeds. Weeds require sunlight to grow. With layers of newspaper on them, the weeds are not going to have light, and therefore will not grow. In time, the newspaper will decompose into the soil. Add visual appeal by placing some mulch over the top.

      2. Try keeping the balance of your credit cards as low as possible. For example, you can hurt your score if you only keep your balance above $1800 when your card has a $2000 limit, even with prompt monthly payments. If you want a higher credit rating, you will need to bring down the balance on any existing accounts. Your credit score can be raised just by reducing your balances. When balances are 20, 40, 60, 80 and 100 percent of the total credit available, the FICO system takes note of it. It is important to carefully review your monthly credit card statement. If there are late fees you don’t deserve, act as soon as possible to get the matter resolved before it can affect your credit score. Having to deal with a collection agency can be extremely stressful. Consumers can legally issue letters to collection agencies to cease and desist if they are being harassed. These letters will discourage contact from collection agencies. This will stop the calls from collection agencies, but that doesn’t mean consumers can keep ignoring the debt.

        Your record of repayment will help improve your credit. Make payments to your credit card that include more than the minimum payment amount if possible each month. If you have a late payment it will be reported and it looks bad. If you can pay the minimum balance, it will show that you can be responsible. The fastest means of improving your credit score is to focus on paying off your outstanding debt. Your credit will get worst if you do not start taking action and paying off what you owe.

        Lowering the balances on any currently revolving accounts will increase your credit score. You can raise your score by lowering your balances. The FICO system notes when balances are at 100, 80, 60, 40 and 20 percent of your total credit available. There exist several non-profit agencies that can help you repair your credit. Instead of reducing the amount you owe (which gets reported negatively) you can work with these organizations who will liaise with the debt collectors to reduce the interest rate, which in effect reduces the amount owed.

        Look over your own credit report to see if there are any missed payments or outstanding debts you have forgotten about. First check for any mistakes that may have been made, and then take action to remedy your past errors. You should first aim to pay off whichever debt has the highest interest rate. However, do not forget to make payments on all of your other debts as well.

        Having poor credit makes financing a home a nightmare. There is, however, alternative types of funding available that are offered by the banks. FHA and USDA are two such agencies who offer finance to those with lower credit scores, sometimes with low down payment and closing cost clauses. FHA loans are also great when a borrower doesn’t have the money to make a down payment or pay closing costs.

        Stay cautious and aware of scams online that can lead you to even bigger problems. There are scams all over the web that teach you how to create a new credit file. Do not think that you can get away with illegal actions. Legal ramifications can cost a lot, and you may go to jail.

        With all of the problems presented by a bad economy, low credit scores are a more common problem than ever. These tips can help you gain insight on how you can get a better credit score. Continuously maintaining a bank account is a great way to show credit worthiness. These accounts will give lenders proof that you can manage your money well and have a reliable source of income. It is, however, very important that you keep your saving or checking record clean. The accounts must look perfect to the creditors for them to be impressed.

        If a company promises that they can remove all negative marks from a credit report, they are lying. You have to wait for seven years before negative data can come off your record. You can, however, succeed at having incorrect information erased from your credit reports.

        You won’t be able to repair your credit until you are able to pay those bills. More precisely, you must begin paying your bills fully and on time. After you have paid off some old bills, you will see an immediate improvement in your credit rating.

        Maintaining a favorable credit score requires you to make all payments in a timely manner. Subscribe to payment reminders to help you stay on top of things. You can set up reminders in a multitude of ways. You can set it up through online banking, a calendar or an email reminder.

        2. Umbrella insurance is now quoted for small business owners who use the system to find price data at the Quotes Pros website at

          Dallas, TX (PRWEB) October 24, 2014

          The increasing risk of liabilities for small companies has expanded the interest in various forms of insurance protection, according to new business studies. The Quotes Pros company is now helping to connect owners of small businesses with umbrella insurance prices through its portal at

          The database of U.S. insurers that can be reviewed for commercial coverage plans has been updated through the portal this month. Umbrella plans as well as customizable policies can be reviewed or quoted for annual pricing using the elite finder system.

          “A new or existing business can have thousands of customers and obtaining a policy for protecting the company or owners could be beneficial,” said one Quotes Pros source.

          The small business owner insurance premiums that can be reviewed using the open system this year are supplied on behalf of rated insurers. Part of the new group of companies that are found inside of price database available supply more than one type of policy and price structure that can be examined.

          “Costs at the state and national level for coverage plans can be researched using our finder tool in order to present options to save business owners money,” said the source.

          The Quotes Pros website was redesigned earlier this year to improve the performance and usability by consumers. By adding new companies into the database, it is now a possibility for a person using the system to find more than commercial based coverage. The automotive, health and motorcycle insurer finder can now be used at


          The company supplies a format for researching and reviewing insurance companies using its website this year. The company first launched its test portal a couple of years ago and has made swift changes in technology to improve consumer usage. The company supports users of its database tool who are ready to buy coverage from a sorted list of agencies that appear inside of the formatted system daily.

        3. Choose trees that come to fruition in the fall. Although fall color may be associated with foliage, there’s a lot of tress that give out decorative fruit. These berries last long into the winter, showering your garden with yellows and reds, as well as bird food. Some of the best types to use are crabapple, chokeberry, holly, and hawthorn.

          Gardening can be hard on your knees. Many people can not bend over for long periods of time while they are standing up. If you kneel, you can easily work on your plants without placing stress on your back. You can kneel on a knee pad so that your knees are more comfortable. A luscious, healthy garden needs proper watering. People and plants both need water to prosper. On a day that is really hot, the soil will become more dry, so a person has to make sure they are keeping the garden watered. By neither over or under-watering your garden, it will stay its healthiest.

          Try to ensure your plants are dry and have enough air, daily! Moisture on your plants is a sure way to attract parasites and disease. A commonplace plant parasite is fungi. Proactively treat fungi through the use of fungicidal sprays and treatments.

          An effective gardening tip is to practice mulching. Mulching allows the soil to retain much-needed moisture; it also makes it easier to keep weeds from taking over your garden or flowerbed. To remove deposits of salt from clay pots, use a mixture of vinegar and alcohol. When you have plants in clay pots, ugly looking salt deposits may accumulate on the outside after a while. Mix water, white vinegar and rubbing alcohol in equal parts, and spray the combination on the pot. Wash your pot with a scrub brush that is plastic and let the salt go away. Be sure to rinse the mixture off the pot and allow it to become thoroughly dry before reusing it. The best gardens start with seeds, as opposed to plants. This is a more sustainable way to start a garden. Plastic used in nurseries normally end up in landfills. For an garden that helps the environment, plant seeds directly in the garden’s soil or purchase plants grown in organic packaging. Wearing gloves to protect your hands is very important. It is very possible to get cut on something that is lodged in the ground if you do not wear gardening gloves. The best time to buy gardening gloves is at the end of summer when all of the gardening supplies have been put on clearance. If you are growing a vegetable garden, you may find that pests can be difficult to control. One major benefit of growing your own produce is knowing that they haven’t been treated with pesticides and other harsh chemicals. Staying on top of the problem will ensure that pests don’t take over your garden. If you find any unwanted pests, try removing them by hand.

          One good way to create layers for a compost pile is to add plant materials to big plastic bags. A good time to collect compost is in fall after the leaves are raked from your yard. These bagged leaves can then be stored in a warm environment. Now, when the springtime rolls around, you have some great material to mix in with your compost.

          Climbing plants make a strong addition to walls, fences or other free-standing structures. These versatile plants can grow over fences to enhance the fence’s appearance. Often, climbers grow quickly, so you’ll get the effect you want by the time the season changes. They can be trained to grow over an arbor, or through trees and shrubs that are already in the garden. Some varieties will climb and attach using their tendrils or branches, but some will need to be trained or supported with ties. There are many varieties you can choose from. Honeysuckle, climbing roses and jasmine are among the best.

          Cooled water left over from steaming vegetables can be fed to them as a little snack. For gardenias and rhododendrons, try putting your used coffee grounds or tea bags in the soil so they may acquire the acid they need for proper growth. Some types of plant fungus problems can be solved by sprinkling with chamomile tea. Always completely protect any cuts, or wait until they are healed before attempting any gardening, as this can introduce dirt or chemicals into the wound. A cut or abrasion can become infected if it is not properly protected from dirt, pesticides and other irritants. It is possible now to get bandages that will completely seal the cut. It is important to allow cuts to completely heal before you do any gardening in order to protect the cut from exposure to dirt or chemicals. The dirt and grime you come into contact with while gardening can cause even a small cut to become seriously infected. You can get bandages that can completely seal your cut.

          Plant shrubs that have decorative fall fruit. Fall color is usually something that foliage boasts, but there are many trees that produce beautiful, colorful fruit. Colorful berries with deep red or yellow hues may provide food for birds long into the winter. Some of the best types to use are crabapple, chokeberry, holly, and hawthorn.

          2. Are you looking to invest in real estate? This is a great way to build up your assets and net wealth, but you have to know what to avoid doing and how to manage things in order to get the right results. Keep reading so that you can see what needs to be done as you get ready to be a real estate investor. Search the market for foreclosures, as these can gross you the most income during your investing. These properties will be listed below the market value of the home, as you can get some great deals to turn a profit with. There will be a bidding war, but if you win you could be sitting on a gold mine.

            As you expand your business of real estate investing, make sure to expand your network of contacts as well. People are often just as important as properties, because they can give you exclusive investment offers before they become available to the public. An expansive network can also provide opportunities in selling that you would not have otherwise known about.

            Stay away from deals that are too good to be true, especially with investors that you cannot trust or do not have a good reputation. It is important to stick with those who have a good reputation because getting ripped off in this business can cost you a lot of money. See if there are all of the stores and schools that you’ll need around the real estate that you’re thinking of getting for your family. You don’t want to move to an area where you’re not near anywhere that you need to go to. It would cost you a lot in traveling expenses, so keep that in mind when you move anywhere. Speak with other investors. It is important that you get the advice of investors who are more experienced than you. Pick the brains of all the knowledgeable people that you run into. The internet is an invaluable source for finding others. Try joining some real estate forums to engage meetups.

            Trying to manage a real estate investment portfolio without the proper information is going to put you in quite a pickle. These should be very exciting times for you as you prepare to set out on your adventure with real estate investing. So be sure you take these tips to heart and continue to seek out helpful information so that you don’t run into any trouble. Stick with the same type of real estate if you are just starting out as an investor. While certain properties and prices may look good, you will be more successful if you develop expertize in one sector first. Become familiar with regulations, rennovation prices, what lenders are looking for and other relevant details and build your investment skills from there. Pick one core strategy and get good at it. Your choices range from buying and flipping, buying and rehabbing or buying and renting. It is easier to master one of the three choices than dabble in two or three. In general, you make the most money in the long run by buying and holding. Speak with friends, family or schoolmates who have knowledge about the business and pick their brains. This can be a free source of information that can help you to develop the best possible strategy for your budget and skill level. Gaining more knowledge is imperative in this business to gain an edge. Learn from like-minded colleagues. More and more people are entering or re-entering the real estate market. This is a passion that many people maintain. You can also join forums to learn more about it. You need to become networked so that you can learn from those people. Don’t invest unless you keep a cash reserve. The money that you put aside can be used for repairs and other costs. Having cash is important if the property is not rented out soon after you buy it. Even an empty home has some overhead expenses. Look for foreclosure opportunities. There are a lot of excellent real estate investment options among foreclosures. They are near always listed well below market price, and some may likely only need minor upgrades and touch-ups. Foreclosure flipping can be a very profitable investment strategy, but do your homework before getting into it!

            While there is nothing wrong with diversifying your portfolio by purchasing real estate in different areas, states, and possibly even countries, make sure you tap into local sources. Chances are you are going to find some great real estate for investment purposes in your area, and you know this area best. At the very least, it would probably be best to get started there.

            1. Hollywood does its part to promote cybersecurity awareness month; helps spread the word that ransomware is a real threat

              (PRWEB) October 22, 2014

              KnowBe4 commended Hollywood this week, noting nearly 11 million viewers got a dose of ransomware Sunday night (October 20th), with CBSs The Good Wife depicting the grim realities of what it means to be infected. While ransomware has continued to spread, many organizations have to deal with the repercussions and expense involved with having their networks frozen. Like the television show, a company can literally have its operations shut down within an hour by encrypting their information. And similar to the TV show but in real life, one KnowBe4 customer had their seven servers killed and 75 Gigs of data encrypted in just 55 minutes.

              As one of network televisions overall Top 25 shows this past week, covering ransomware is significant. It not only signifies the impact and broad invasion by ransomware, but takes a stab at showing just how easy and quick it is to shut down a network., said Stu Sjouwerman, CEO of KnowBe4, a Tampa, FL-based internet security awareness training company. Should ransomware hit a key employee or perhaps a CEO or CFO, it can do immense damage.

              As Cybersecurity Awareness month comes to an end, KnowBe4 warns users and network administrators alike that the cyber criminals dont stop. In fact, Sjouwerman predicts that the Russian cyber mafias will step up their activities in anticipation of increased holiday spending. The new and improved Version 2 of the worlds most widespread ransomware CryptoWall, continues to encrypt files so that a ransom can be extracted if there are no backups or if the backup process fails, often a common occurrence.

              Personal information is taken from data breaches like the Home depot, Target and similar hacks. Cyber criminals then use this information and email addresses to spear-phish their targets, hoping to get more detailed financial information and passwords. From mid 2013 to mid 2014, Russian cybercrime brought in 2.5 billion dollars, as reported in a report from Group-IB.

              Sjouwerman advises continued diligence by users and businesses alike. KnowBe4 advises:

              1. Make regular backups, and have a backup off-site as well. TEST the restore function regularly to make sure backups actually work.

              2. Patch browsers as soon as possible, and keep the amount of plug-ins as low as possible as this will diminish the attack surface.

              3. Step all users through effective training on security such as Kevin Mitnick Security Awareness Training to prevent malware infections to start with.

              Sjouwerman says, Think before you click. Dont open anything from someone unless you are expecting it. Hover over an email address to make sure its from a valid domain, one you know and recognize. Backup your critical data in multiple locations that are not connected to your network as if you get ransomware, anything connected is a target.

              KnowBe4 offers a free Phishing Security Test(PST) to find out just how many of your users are Phish-prone. KnowBe4 also offers a Crypto-Ransom guarantee and is confident its training works so well, they will pay your ransom if you get hit with ransomware while you are a customer.
