Today was a busy day. After I woke up and ate breakfast it was time to go down to Bellevue to meet with my interior designer . She had put something together for the house for us to look at, she presented what kind of furniture in the formal living would be great in there , so as the other living room where everybody gather. I got my favorite table for the breakfast nook, it's a marble with a glass on top. I will have to show what it look like later. She also presented what she put up together for the master's bedroom and kids bedroom. And so as the office.
Over all I loved all the presentation she did. Fabric are very cooling on the eye. I will have to share the picture here sometimes. Putting all together are a lot of work, even though I wasn't the one who's putting things together.
The presentation took 3 hours,wheew!! I thought It wouldn't end.

We have about 100,000 hairs on our heads. Each hair shaft has three layers, with the cuticle, or outside layer, protecting the two inner layers.
Shiny hair is a sign of health because the layers of the cuticle lie flat and reflect light. When the scales of the cuticle lie flat they overlap tightly, so the inner layers are well protected from heat, sun, chlorine, and all the other hazards that can come from living in our environment. When hair is damaged, though, the scales may separate and hair can become dry. Because the scales on dry hair don't protect the inner two layers as well, hair can break and look dull.
The type of hair a person has - whether it's straight or curly - can also affect how shiny it is. Sebum, which is the natural oil on the hair, covers straight hair better than curly hair, which is why straight hair can appear shinier.
Depending how long a person's hair is or how fast it grows, the end of each hair shaft can be a couple of years old. So the hair at the end of the shaft could have survived a few summers of scorching sun and saltwater and winters of cold, dry air. How well you care for your hair from the time it emerges from the root plays a role in how healthy it looks.
Caring for Hair
How you take care of your hair depends on the type of hair you have, your lifestyle, and how you style your hair.
Your hair type. People with dry, curly hair have different hair care needs than people with straight, fine hair. But all hair needs to be treated gently, especially when it's wet. Wet hair can stretch, making it more vulnerable to breakage or cuticle damage. That's why using a hot blow-dryer (or other heat styling products) on very wet hair can damage it.
Some people find that their hair gets oily in their teen years. That's because the hair follicles contain sebaceous glands that make sebum, which moisturizes the hair and skin. During adolescence, the sebaceous glands may become overactive, producing more oil than needed. As with acne, oily hair is usually a temporary part of puberty.
Many teens care for oily hair by washing it once a day - or more if they're active. As long as you treat your hair gently when it's wet, frequent washing shouldn't harm it. If you have acne, it's a good idea to keep the hair around your face clean so hair oils don't clog your pores.
If you're washing your hair every day or more, it may be better to choose a mild shampoo instead of a shampoo designed for oily hair. For some people - especially people with fine, fragile, or combination hair (hair that's oily at the crown but dry on the ends) - shampoos for oily hair can be too harsh. If you have oily hair and want to use a conditioner, choose one that's made for oily hair.
If your hair is dry, it's a good idea to wash it less frequently. Some people only need to wash their hair once a week - and that's fine. Many people who have curly hair also have dry hair. Curly and dry hair types are usually more fragile than straight hair, so you'll need to be especially careful about using heat styling products. Shampoos made for dry hair and hair conditioners can help.
Your activity level and interests. Do you play sports or spend a lot of time at the beach? These kinds of things can affect your hair. For example, if you're an athlete with oily hair, you may want to wash your hair after working up a sweat during practice and games. But if you're a lifeguard or a swimmer, sun and saltwater (or the chlorine in pool water) can dry your hair out, no matter what your hair type. If you're exposed to sun, wind, or other elements, you may want to use a shampoo designed for dry hair or use a conditioner. It's also a good idea to wear a hat to protect your hair when you're outdoors.
Your hairstyle. Heat styling products like curling and straightening irons can dry out even oily hair if they're used too much. Follow the instructions carefully, and don't use them on wet hair or high settings, and give your hair a vacation from styling once in a while. Ask your hair stylist or dermatologist for advice on using heat styling products.
Chemical treatments can also harm hair if they're not used properly. If you decide you want a chemical treatment to color, straighten, or curl your hair, it's best to trust the job to professionals. Stylists who are trained in applying chemicals to hair will be able to evaluate your hair type and decide which chemicals will work best for you.
Here are some things to be aware of when getting chemical treatments:
* Relaxers. Relaxers (straighteners) work by breaking chemical bonds in curly hair. Relaxers containing lye can cause skin irritation and hair breakage. Although "no lye" relaxers may cause less irritation, both types of relaxers can cause problems if they are used in the wrong way (for example, if they're mixed incorrectly or left on the hair for too long). Scratching, brushing, or combing your hair right before a chemical relaxing treatment can increase these risks. And don't use relaxers - or any hair treatment - if your scalp is irritated.
If you decide to keep straightening your hair, you'll need to wait at least 6 weeks before your next treatment to protect your hair. Relaxers can cause hair breakage when used over a period of time, even when they're used properly. Using blow-dryers, curling or straightening irons, or color on chemically relaxed hair can also increase the risk of damage.
* Perms. Perms take straight hair and make it curly. The risks are similar to those associated with relaxers.
* Color. There are two types of color: permanent (which means the color stays in your hair until it grows out) and semi-permanent (the color washes out after a while). Some semi-permanent coloring treatments, like henna, are fairly safe and easy to use at home. Some people get a condition called contact dermatitis (an allergic reaction with a rash) from henna and other "natural" products, so be sure to test a small area first.
Other color treatments - especially permanent treatments - can cause hair loss, burning, redness, and irritation. A few types of coloring treatments can cause allergic reactions in certain people, and in rare cases these can be very serious. So talk to your stylist if you are worried that you may be sensitive to the products. Also, talk to your stylist about doing a patch test before using a product. And never use hair dyes on your eyelashes or eyebrows.
Regular haircuts are one of the best ways to help keep hair healthy. Even if you have long hair or you're trying to grow your hair, a haircut can help protect the ends of your hair from splitting and damage. In fact, cutting may actually help your hair grow better because it's healthy and not breaking off.
Dealing With Hair Problems
Here are some common hair problems - and tips on how to deal with them.
Dandruff - or flakes of dead skin - can be noticeable in a person's hair and on clothing. No one really knows what causes dandruff, although recent studies seem to show that it may be caused by a type of fungus.
Dandruff isn't contagious or dangerous. Over-the-counter shampoos containing salicylic acid, zinc, tars, or selenium sulfide can reduce dandruff flakes. When shampooing, scrub your hair for at least 5 minutes, loosening the flakes with your fingers. Rinse your hair well after washing. If your dandruff doesn't improve, see your doctor. He or she may prescribe a prescription shampoo and possibly a lotion or liquid to rub into your scalp.
Hair can break when points in the hair thicken or weaken. Sometimes this happens near the scalp so a person's hair never grows very long. When hairs break at the ends, they're called "split ends," and the splits can travel up the hair shaft.
A major cause of hair breakage is improper use of chemical hair treatments, like the treatments described above. But brushing or combing hair too frequently or in the wrong way (such as using a fine-toothed comb on very thick, curly hair or teasing hair) can lead to breakage. Hair extensions and braids can also cause breakage. Leaving them in too long or pulling them out without professional help can cause hair and scalp damage or even hair loss.
Sometimes hair breakage and dry, brittle hair are signs of a medical problem, such as hypothyroidism or an eating disorder. If your hair is breaking even though you don't treat it with chemicals or other styling products, see a doctor.
Hair Loss (Alopecia)
It's normal for everyone to lose some hair. In fact, we lose about 100 hairs each day as old hairs fall out and are replaced with new ones. With hair loss, though, hair thins at a rate that can't be replaced. When hair falls out and isn't replaced by new hair, a person can become bald or have bald patches. Hair loss can be temporary or permanent, depending on the cause. If changing your hairstyle or other treatment doesn't help, see a doctor. He or she may prescribe a drug to slow or stop hair loss and to help hair grow.
As with the rest of our bodies, hair is healthiest when we eat right, exercise, and protect it from too much sun.

It's All About Hair Care
Monday, October 27, 2008
Proper hair care will lead to healthier and better-looking hair. Bad hair care tactics, or not taking care of your hair can lead to breakage, fly away, frizziest, split ends, dull hair, and early hair loss. When it comes to hair care, there are a few basic rules that everyone should consider adopting for the long-term health of their strands.
These are the tips for your healthy hair:
Never brush wet hair. This will guarantee breakage. Use a good pick or your fingers to untangle your hair as you dry it. Hair should be about 90% dry before brushing.
Choose healthy habits for your hair. Any habits that damage your body also damage your hair. Exercise, eat well and avoid smoking and alcohol, or at least cut back. Your hair is just one part of the holistic you.
Hot air can be damaging to your hair so when using a hair dryer use the cool setting.
Don't leave the blow dryer in one spot for more than a few seconds, keep it moving and at a good distance away from your hair.
To speed up the drying process, pat your hair dry with a towel and let the remaining moisture in your hair dry naturally.
Gently use your fingers or a pick to untangle any knots while your hair is drying.
While you swim: When swimming where a cap to protect your hair from chlorinated water, if you choose not to wear a cap make sure you shampoo and condition your hair right after you are done swim. Before entering a pool, wet your hair so your hair will soak up the initial water instead of the chlorinated water.
You should wash your hair as often as you feel necessary to keep it clean, but a general rule is for oily hair you should wash it every day or every other day and for dry hair 2-3 times a week.
Try rotating the shampoo and conditioner at regular intervals,your hair responds differently to different products.
Conditioning after shampooing is advisable, because it'll moisturize your hair, give it extra protection, add smoothness, reduce static, and makes it easier to untangle.
When conditioning your hair, try to spread conditioner evenly through out your hair and leave it in for a couple of minutes before rinsing out your hair.
Right shampoo for your kind of hair: If your hair is of dry type, Herbal or Egg shampoo will suit best. If you have Normal hair, use fruit shampoo or henna shampoo. Lemon based Shampoos will suit oily hair.

Circuit training is a type of interval training in which strength exercises are combined with endurance/aerobic exercises, combining the benefits of both a cardiovascular and strength training workout. 'Circuit' means a group of activities and refers to a number of selected 'stations' positioned around the facility that are to be visited in rapid succession.
The range of stations includes those comprising resistance equipment (e.g. hydraulic equipment or free weights), as well as allocated spaces to do squat thrusts, pushups, jumping jacks, sit-ups, and other exercises. Each person should complete the activity in one station before they proceed to the next station. They then continue until they have passed through all stations once or twice as required, or until a certain time requirement has been met.

The physical aspect of yoga, the asanas, has been much popularized in the West, and devoted celebrity practitioners like Madonna and Sting have contributed to the increased visibility of the practice.
Physically, of the practice of asanas is considered that it improves: muscle flexibility, tendon strength, stamina, health and internal functioning of the body.
The emphasis on the physical part has given rise to the perception that yoga consists only of asana practice. A more esoteric intention is to facilitate the flow of prana (vital energy; qi in Chinese; ki in Japanese) to aid in balancing the koshas (sheaths) of the physical and metaphysical body.
Depending on the level of mastery, the practitioner of asanas is supposed to achieve many supernatural abilities. For instance, a yogi who has mastered Mayurasana will not be affected by eating any poison.
In the Yoga Sutra, Patanjali suggests that the only requirement for practicing asanas is that it be "steady and comfortable". The body is held poised, and relaxed, with the practitioner experiencing no discomfort.
When control of the body is mastered, practitioners free themselves from the duality of heat/cold, hunger/satiety, joy/grief, which is the first step toward the unattachment that relieves suffering. This non-dualistic perspective comes from the Sankya school of the Himalayan Masters.
Students in Utthita Ashwa Sanchalanasana (High lunge) Listed below are traditional practices for performing asana:
A glass of fresh water should be taken before performing asanas.
The stomach should be relatively empty.
Force or pressure should not be used, and the body should not tremble.
Lower the head and other parts of the body slowly; in particular, raised heels should be lowered slowly.
The breathing should be controlled. The benefits of asanas increase if the specific pranayama to the yoga type is performed.
If the body is stressed, perform Corpse Pose or Child Pose.
Some claim that asanas, especially inverted poses, are to be avoided during menstruation. Others deny this view.
Nowadays, asanas are generally not performed on floor, but on Yoga mats instead.

We had an appointment with the Basset Furniture Interior Designer for the presentation, we barely got back. I tell you, I would not want to hire her or even ask her back to do my house furniture and stuff. I like the way she present thing and putting furniture and I like the way she put the lay out design for my house. What I didn't like was the furniture and fabric she wanted to put at my house, so antique, I am not into antique furniture so NOT happening. And beside she was kind of demanding. She didn't even ask me and my hubby if we like the way the furniture look like this or if what do we think about it! So, those looking antique furniture isn't happening on my house.
Tomorrow , we are going to meet with another interior designer at Sheonfield Furniture. I like the furniture and the designer Lady at shoenfield , so i will probably hire her to decorate my house and beside she wasn't demanding. Infact she said that if I found some furniture I like outside from her store bring it and she will work around it. That's my kind of girl, she doesn't tell me what to do. Beside, she work's for me... not me working with her.

4 Elements of a Rounded Routine
Tuesday, October 21, 2008
Want to achieve overall physical fitness? Make sure your fitness training routine covers the bases: aerobic fitness, muscular fitness, stretching and core stability.
Whether you're an exercise novice taking the first steps toward fitness or a committed fitness fanatic hoping to optimize your results, a well-rounded fitness training program is essential. Base your exercise goals on the four primary elements of fitness.
1. Aerobic fitness
Aerobic exercise is the cornerstone of most fitness training programs. Aerobic exercise causes you to breathe faster and more deeply, which maximizes the amount of oxygen in your blood. The better your aerobic fitness, the more efficiently your heart, lungs and blood vessels transport oxygen throughout your body — and the easier it is to complete routine physical tasks and rise to unexpected challenges, such as running to your car in the pouring rain.
So what counts? Any physical activity that uses large muscle groups and increases your heart rate. Try walking, jogging, biking, swimming, dancing, water aerobics — even gardening and housework. Aim for at least 30 to 60 minutes of aerobic exercise most days of the week, even if you need to break it into 10-minute spurts of activity.
2. Muscular fitness
Muscular fitness is another key component of a fitness training program. Regular strength training can help you reduce your body fat, increase your lean muscle mass and burn calories more efficiently. Building muscle also protects your joints from injury and boosts your stamina. It might even help you get a better night's sleep.
Most fitness centers offer various resistance machines, free weights and other tools for strength training. But you don't need to invest in a gym membership or expensive equipment to reap the benefits of strength training. Hand-held weights or homemade weights — such as plastic soft drink bottles filled with water or sand — may work just as well. Resistance bands are another inexpensive option. Your own body weight counts, too. Try push-ups, abdominal crunches and leg squats.
Most aerobic and strength training activities cause your muscles to contract and flex. For balance in your fitness training program, it's important to stretch those muscles, too. Stretching increases your flexibility, improves the range of motion of your joints, and promotes better posture and circulation. Regular stretching can even relieve stress and help prevent injury, especially if your muscles or joints are tight.
Set aside time to stretch after each workout, when your muscles are warm and receptive to stretching. If you don't exercise regularly, you might want to stretch at least three times a week to maintain flexibility. Activities such as yoga and tai chi promote flexibility, too.
4. Core stability
The muscles in your abdomen, lower back and pelvis — known as your core muscles — support balance and stability. The final element of a well-rounded fitness training program? You guessed it. Strengthening your core muscles.
Abdominal crunches are a classic core exercise. You can also try tai chi, or do various core exercises with a fitness ball. Sitting on the ball with good posture is a good start. From there, you can try abdominal crunches and other core movements.
Cover all 4 elements
Whether you create your own fitness training program or enlist the help of a personal trainer, make aerobic fitness, muscular fitness, stretching and core stability part of your overall exercise plan. Factoring in these four fitness elements can help you promote fitness for life.

Need inspiration to start a fitness program? Explore the many benefits of aerobic exercise, from increased energy and improved stamina to disease prevention.
Investing 30 minutes a day in aerobic exercise — such as walking, bicycling or swimming — can help you live longer and healthier. In fact, aerobic exercise may be the magic bullet you've been looking for.
Take a look at the health benefits associated with aerobic exercise. See how aerobic exercise affects your heart, lungs and blood flow — and get motivated to reap the rewards!
How your body responds to aerobic exercise
During aerobic exercise, you repeatedly move large muscles in your arms, legs and hips. You'll notice your body's responses quickly.
You'll breathe faster and more deeply. This maximizes the amount of oxygen in your blood. Your heart will beat faster, which increases blood flow to your muscles and back to your lungs. Your small blood vessels (capillaries) will widen to deliver more oxygen to your muscles and carry away waste products, such as carbon dioxide and lactic acid. Your body will even release endorphins, natural painkillers that promote an increased sense of well-being.
What aerobic exercise does for your health
Regardless of your age, weight or athletic ability, aerobic exercise is good for you. As your body adapts to regular aerobic exercise, you'll get stronger and more efficient. Consider some of the many ways that aerobic exercise can help you feel better and enjoy life to the fullest.
Regular aerobic exercise can:
Reduce health risks. Aerobic exercise reduces the risk of many conditions, including obesity, heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, stroke and certain types of cancer. Weight-bearing aerobic exercises, such as walking, reduce the risk of osteoporosis.
Help you manage chronic conditions. Aerobic exercise helps lower high blood pressure, control blood sugar and relieve chronic muscle pain. If you've had a heart attack, aerobic exercise can help prevent subsequent attacks.
Keep excess pounds at bay. Combined with a healthy diet, aerobic exercise can help you lose weight — and keep it off.
Ward off viral illnesses. Aerobic exercise activates your immune system. This leaves you less susceptible to minor viral illnesses, such as colds and flu.
Keep your arteries clear. Aerobic exercise increases the concentration of high-density lipoprotein (HDL, or "good") cholesterol and decreases the concentration of low-density lipoprotein (LDL, or "bad") cholesterol in your blood. The potential result? Less buildup of plaques in your arteries.
Strengthen your heart. A stronger heart doesn't need to beat as fast. A stronger heart also pumps blood more efficiently, which improves blood flow to all parts of your body.
Boost your mood. Aerobic exercise can ease the gloominess of depression and reduce the tension associated with anxiety, as well as promote relaxation.
Increase your stamina. Aerobic exercise may make you tired in the short term. But over the long term, you'll enjoy increased stamina and reduced fatigue.
Stay active and independent as you get older. Aerobic exercise keeps your muscles strong, which can help you maintain mobility as you get older. Aerobic exercise also keeps your mind sharp. Researchers say that at least 30 minutes of aerobic exercise three days a week can reduce cognitive decline in older adults.
Need more convincing? People who engage in regular aerobic exercise appear to live longer than those who don't.
Check with your doctor before you begin to exercise. Once you have your doctor's OK, start slowly. You might walk five minutes in the morning and five minutes in the evening. The next day, add a few minutes to each walking session. Pick up the pace a bit, too. Soon, you could be walking briskly for 30 minutes a day — and reaping all the benefits of regular aerobic exercise.
Other options might include cross-country skiing, aerobic dancing, swimming, stair climbing, bicycling, jogging, elliptical training or rowing. If you have a condition that limits your ability to exercise, ask your doctor about alternatives. If you have arthritis, for example, aquatic exercises may give you the benefits of aerobic exercise without stressing your joints.
Live longer and stay healthier with just 30 minutes of aerobic exercise a day!

Cutting Out Coffee 14 Days to Break the Habit
Friday, October 17, 2008
Are you a one-cup-a-day kinda guy or more like a nine-cups-a-day kinda gal? Coffee is as much a part of the average adult’s morning routine as brushing their teeth. But how good is it really for you? Find out if it’s time for you to give up that cup ‘o joe. Plus: Try our 14-day plan for quitting caffeine, without experiencing withdrawals…
The aroma of a fresh brewed cup of coffee or the taste of a freshly pulled shot of espresso is enough to get anyone out of bed on time, even on a dreary, cold morning. Coffee is truly a comfort “food.” But while some studies suggest that coffee is practically a health elixir with its abundance of antioxidants, others highlight the negative side effects that caffeine has on our bodies.
The pros: In 2007 alone, studies concluded that caffeine supplements eased post-workout muscle pain and the combination of caffeine and exercise can reduce the risk of skin cancer. Other findings said three or more daily cups of coffee may aid memory in older women, and drinking five or more cups a day can help prevent Alzheimer’s disease.

Birds of a Feather
Thursday, October 16, 2008
Weight loss and lifestyle change are challenging, even for the best of us. However, both of these things are accessible to those who want it bad enough and who are willing to do whatever it takes to make it happen. One issue that is critical to success for lifestyle change has to do with the support and encouragement that you get from those around you. If they are supportive and always encouraging you to make healthy choices, your odds for success are very good. On the other hand, if those around you are not supportive and are constantly trying to take you off track at every turn, well, good luck! Simply put, and as that old saying so aptly states, “Birds of a feather flock together.” My point here is this: If it’s weight loss and healthy living you’re working on, you have a much better chance of succeeding if you surround yourself with like-minded birds…I mean people!
Take drinking for example. If you are trying to stop drinking alcohol, it doesn’t make a lot of sense to hang around with people who go to bars and drink a lot as a form of recreation. Their influence may be a little too powerful to resist. It might be necessary to bring some new people into your life… new people, that is, who embrace healthy living. The more time you spend with those who share your goals, the more likely you are to achieve them. I’m not suggesting you toss all of your current friends overboard. What I am suggesting, however, is that you take a good hard look at the personalities you surround yourself with and make some judgments regarding where it’s best for you to spend most of your time. When all is said and done, birds of a feather do tend to flock together!

In today's world , everything is pretty modern. We uses advance technology. Let's talk about a human eyes. Anywhere you go, you see people either wearing the actual glasses or contact lenses. They had to wear them just because of incorrect vision, either they have 20/20, farsighted, nearsighted vision or hard for them to see at all.
For this eye problem , there is one solution like LASIK technology . Modern LASIK, known as the iLASIK Procedure, uses two lasers instead of one, as in earlier versions of the procedure. In the first stage of iLASIK, wave-front technology maps the unique characteristics of the individual’s eyes. Then, an ultrafast, computer-guided laser creates a corneal flap. This laser replaces the handheld microkeratome blade used in older forms of LASIK and makes the procedure exceptionally safe. After the flap is created, the wave-front mapping data guides a second laser for vision correction. The combination of these advanced laser technologies creates a custom-fit procedure clinically proven to provide excellent safety and visual results.
iLasik procedure is not complicated — it's fast and virtually painless. Lasik has increase usage for all the man in uniforms. iLasik is been use for years and very safe.The iLASIK procedure only takes minutes. It reshapes your cornea to correct the refractive imperfections in your eye (these imperfections are essentially the reason you are nearsighted, farsighted . You get an extensive exam by an iLASIK surgeon. Computers/software are used to make an individual blueprint of your eyes; this blueprint is used to drive your laser correction and is what gives you a truly customized result. A laser is used to make a thin flap in your cornea. You'll be given numbing drops so you won't feel pain. This flap enables the surgeon to make the iLASIK correctio. A second laser is used to make the correction to your cornea, based on your unique vision/eye characteristics. This correction is completely computer driven. It's safe,2 fast and virtually painless. You can have great vision without glasses or contacts. To get more LASIK information , just visit the click above.

In the fall and winter, it is easy to overlook your thirst and get dehydrated. Make sure you consume 8 glasses a day.

Wash your hands frequently to keep cold and flu germs from spreading.
Washing your hands often will help protect you from germs. Your kids need to wash their hands for at least 30 seconds to effectively kill germs. Kids can measure the time by singing "Happy Birthday" song twice.

Cover your mouth and nose.
Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. It may prevent those around you from getting sick. Teach your children to avoid spreading cold and flu viruses by coughing into the crux of their elbows, instead of into their hands.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
Germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth.
Disinfect commonly used surfaces in your home.
From the faucet to the doorknob to the toys your kids play with, the surfaces they touch are often breeding grounds for colds and flu germs. One of the most important ways to protect your family and stop viruses dead in their tracks is to disinfect commonly touched surfaces with a disinfectant spray or wipe, such as those made by LYSOL.
Consult with a doctor.
If you're running a fever, please visit your doctor. Talk to the doctor before your family gets sick. He or she can advise you whether to get a flu shot and which over-the-counter medicines to have on-hand should someone start to feel sick.

Budget numbers don't add up; sheen of distortion colors oil issues.
HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. - Facts went astray on tax cuts, negative campaign advertising and oil exports when Democrat Barack Obama and Republican John McCain engaged Wednesday in their third and final presidential debate.
McCAIN: Claimed that Obama has spent more money on negative ads than any other presidential candidate. That's probably true — given that Obama will have raised and spent more than any other candidate.
THE FACTS: By one measure, however, McCain was wrong when he said that 100 percent of his ads weren't negative. According to one study, by the University of Wisconsin Advertising Project, 100 percent of McCain's ads have been negative.
The McCain campaign sent out an e-mail with a CMAG comparison (covering Sept. 12-Oct. 11) of how much money the two campaigns have spent on negative and positive advertising. It does back up McCain's statements that Obama is spending more than $40 million on negative advertising, but it also shows that he's spending nearly $30 million on positive advertising. According to this release, McCain is spending more than $27 million on negative ads and only $5 million on positive ads. McCain is only running 11,471 positive ads compared to nearly 60,000 negative ads, according to the release. Comparatively, Obama is running 48,729 positive ads and more than 80,000 negative ads.
So, yes, Obama is spending lots of money on negative ads, but he's also spending much more money on ads as a whole. But percentage wise — according to the CMAG numbers — McCain is spending nearly 85 percent of his total advertising budget on negative advertising. Obama is spending roughly 60 percent of his total advertising budget on negative advertising.

Make Getting Fired Work for You
Sunday, October 12, 2008
Getting a pink slip. Being downsized. Making adjustments. Reorganizing. So many synonyms that mean: "You're fired."
With the unemployment rate reaching 5.5 percent in May 2008, more and more employers are telling workers that they're out of work. While losing your job unexpectedly is never good news, it doesn't have to be a setback. It can be a chance to change directions and find a better career.
The day you get fired, you can feel angry, sad and every other emotion that comes your way. The next day, however, take steps to make the most of the situation.
Ask the right questions
You got fired for a reason, so whether it was you, the job or the boss, you need to know what did and didn't work about the situation. Todd Dewett, a management professor at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio, and the author of "Leadership Redefined," recommends asking yourself a variety of questions to assess your experience.
"Why did this happen to me? What functional or technical skills do I need to build in order to avoid this situation in the future? How does my professional network need to grow? Are there things about my interpersonal style or leadership skills I need to reconsider?"
Then, he suggests, take action. "You can innovatively and aggressively start answering these questions. The alternative is to blame others and stew in negative emotions -- and that never helped anyone get their career back on track."
You might discover that you needed to move on from that job but weren't willing to take the step. Look at getting fired as your employer giving you a little push that now allows you to make some drastic changes, says Rachelle J. Canter, career expert and author of "Make the Right Career Move."
"Finding work you love is easily a full-time job. Virtually every career transition client of mine over 20 years has been dissatisfied and made some fledging attempts to find new work," she says. "The lack of financial and employment security provides more time to look and more inspiration to get serious."
It's OK to be happy about it
After hearing that you've been fired, you might be waiting for rage to bubble up or tears to flow, but your initial reaction to getting fired might not be as negative as you expect. You might even crack a smile.
Pamela Skillings, career coach and author of "Escape from Corporate America" has seen people expect to feel bad about their job loss only to realize the benefits of getting fired.
"Of course, most didn't see their pink slips as blessings right away," she says. "It's never fun to suddenly lose your job, though I have heard many say that they were surprised to feel a great sense of relief upon hearing the news that they were being let go."
Once you've asked and answered the questions, you're left wondering what to do.
Explore your options. Decide if you want to stay in the same field, if you want to make a change or if you want to start your own business.
Make a plan. Once you know where you want to lead your career, take steps toward making it happen. For example, you might need more training or education if you're going to switch careers.
Commit. No job search is easy, especially one that you weren't planning, but you can't be deterred along the way when you don't get every position you want. You'll be tempted to return to the familiar if you're making a big move, but trust your decision to start fresh.

Well, my Saturday was very booked up. I didn't have anytime to open up my blog or check any of my money making site earlier today. We had to go to Sear and Lowes( Me and My Boo) to check out some heater tank. His parent's heater tank quit on them so it, need to be replace. After that we have to attend his nephew's birthday party at Pump It Up. The kid turn 5, It was crowded for all the classmate of his nephews attended. I didn't took any picture of the party. But it went well, eat some pizza, cake and left. LOL! The party was mostly for kids, but of course the party place was reserve for any ages , so the teenager niece and nephews got to play .
But, over all the party went well.

Help Others by Donating Goods
Thursday, October 9, 2008
Want to get involved with community outreach by connecting with non-profit organizations? Donating previously owned clothes, toys, furniture, appliances, even cars can be a big commitment of time and effort. The following steps will help you to understand and work with successful systems of donation and distribution of needed articles. These steps are for those who want to start their own donation and distribution organization and work with other organizations as well.
Find donation organizations such as "Helping Needy Families." These may be found online, through churches, community centers, etc. Many of them will have a welcome or information letter available.
Make sure they give a contact name. For example: "Hello, My name is Tami." Having an actual contact name is important for specific and consistent contact.
Find out if they are willing to help other groups like themselves, (be an affiliate).
Research the needs, both of their group and yours. For example: A mission called "Heavens Manna for the needy" is a used clothing, toys, furniture, appliances, food, etc., donation and distribution center.
Look for ways to help get involved with them. How can you receive free donations from companies in order to get started?
Get the details. Once a relationship is established, get all the relevant details: Website address, contact name, phone, physical address, purpose, supporting information, etc.
Verify the information given. Because of security concerns and possible fake organizations, be sure to validate the information for your own safety.
Enjoy working with the authentic and like-minded organization to help those in the community who are in need!
There may be an organization already in existence in your area. Makes sure to research and find anyone you can work with. They may have done some of the hard work already.
There are people and organizations that take advantage of non-profit and community outreach groups. Be sure to watch for information that does seem authentic when establishing a relationship.
Patience and persistence. There may be obstacles to be overcome.
A website for your new organization is very helpful for connecting to others.
Compassion for those who will ultimately benefit from your actions.

When you were little, people probably asked, "What do you want to do when you grow up?" Maybe you said a firefighter, or an astronaut. Maybe you said an actor, or a lawyer, or a doctor. With starry eyes, you dreamed of the day you would live in a rich mansion, with maids and butlers. Then, a career seemed like something that would happen a lifetime away. But now that the time has come to choose, your interests have probably changed. Finding the right career for you can be difficult, but not impossible.
Know who you are, and not just your name. What are your interests? What skills do you possess? Are you cheerful, bubbly, and a people-person? Maybe becoming a teacher is for you. Do you love to get out a saw and wood and create projects? Maybe an architect is the job you want. Spend an hour in a private place, or get together with a friend. Talk about the things you love. Write them down, and analyze them when you're done. See if you can put together an idea.
If you have an idea of what you want to do, read up on it! Head for the library, or surf the web. Read as much as you can about your career choice. If you decide you chose wrong, analyze your skills again. Talk with a parent, friend, or professor about what they think.
Utilize several different job search techniques and do each of them well. Don't put all your eggs in one basket.
Keep in touch with people who can positively influence your job search and career. In your future career pursuit, simple reference letter can be of crucial importance.
Try to learn about why you don't get every job you apply for. Learn from your mistakes.
Before you start applying for jobs ensure you know what you're looking for. A good job search is a focused job search. Make sure to tailor you Resume or CV according to job position that you are applying for.
Don't apply for job you aren't qualified for. One of the worst things is lying on your Resume. You might ruin your chances with a company for a job you are qualified for in the future.
Manage your references. Don't assume there isn't such a thing as a bad reference. There is. And it can cost you jobs.
Plan your career with a long term focus. Short term gain can cause long term pain.
Take command of your career. Don't rely on other people to get the job for you. Nobody knows you better than your self, just do it.
Treat your resume like it has value. While you want to send your resume to people who can positively influence your job search, you don't want to plaster it on every job board and give people the impression you can't get hired.

Unemployment is a situation the vast majority of people dread. Having to tell people such as relatives, friends and aquaintances about your jobless status can be shameful and embarrassing. Here are some ways to eliminate the stigma.
Start looking for a job on the Internet. Do this as soon as you are fired, laid off or you just plain quit your job for some reason. Nowadays, it is best looking for a job on the Net obviously for convenience. There are many job hunting websites on offer such as Monster (www.monster.com), Seek (www.seek.com.au)[If you live in Australia] and so on. Most websites give you the option to create an online resume. Do this if you don't already have one.
Register your details with a temp recruitment agency. There are many to choose from, such as Adecco, Manpower, Julia Ross etc. Usually you will have to have your resume handy and turn up to their offices to fill in the paperwork. Oftentimes these temp agencies post jobs that lead to permanency; as well as part-time, contract and casual roles.
Maintain discipline in relation to your job hunting. This requires having a daily routine very similar to when you were working. For those that have never worked before, this means to wake up early in the morning (5:30am - 7:30am) and taking a a quick shower and breakfast at scheduled times. Not having to get up and go to work in the morning at a set time is one of the advantages of unemployment, but if you are not organised, you will become discouraged and sloppy in your job-seeking.
Apply for welfare relief as soon as possible. Do this if you have little or no money left in your bank account/s. However, you should be aware that this may not be available in many countries, especially developing ones. But for those that do, receiving welfare payments (not that big anyway) will greatly help you in regards to everyday expenses such as food, utilities and rent as well as travel expenses such as if you have to go to a job interview.
Be very thrifty with your money. Do NOT spend money on unnecessary purchases such as computer games, DVD's, expensive food, alcohol or anything else that will ultimately turn you in to a lazy bum. Basically you should remove non-essential shopping from your budget until you find a steady job.
Find entertainment once in a while or else complete boredom will set in. When at home, watch TV or play video games once you have completed your set routine of job-seeking. Outside of home, be aware of the free/cheap options available to you. These would include going to the cinemas, walking around a park and walking the dog (if you have one).
Do some physical exercise. Sit-ups, push-ups, barbell curls, stretches, and running/jogging will make you more motivated as well as keeping you in good shape.
Maintain contacts with friends and family members. They may help you look for a job and give you guidance. Most of all, communicating with people you know once in a while will help you keep your sanity.
Don't feel sorry for yourself. This will make the people you know perceive you as insecure and having low self-esteem.
Be yourself and hold your head high. Besides, there are many out there who are unemployed and have a similar situation as you.
Do not drink alcohol. Do so only at friend's parties and social occasions on the weekend.
Don't sleep too late
