: It does not matter if you are a Doctor, a Lawyer or an infantry soldier in the Army if you want to be the best and get ahead, you will need to take risks. A doctor may have to take risks when working with a patient. The Doctor may have to experiment with different forms of medications or new surgical procedures when all else has failed in an attempt to help the patient. A lawyer may have to argue a case in an unorthodox manner to win the case, but if the lawyer wants to become the top lawyer and make millions of dollars fighting high profile cases lots of risks have to be taken. A soldier may have to take a risk and run thru gunfire to save another injured soldier, to complete their mission, or just to secure an area from being overrun by enemy troops, after going days with little to no sleep, but if a soldier wants to get promotions and eventually lead men into battle they also need to take risks. These risks are not unlike someone looking to get rich in a casino, they have to be willing to risk everything they have to get that million dollar payoff. If you play it safe in a casino you may get lucky and win a big jackpot on the slot machines, but if you want to make millions you are going to have to play games such as Poker, Blackjack, Roulette and Craps . These are the games that with some skill, some luck and a lot of risk taking you can retire off your winnings. The same can be said about life in general. No one gets ahead in life from playing it safe. You will not meet your special someone if you are too afraid to risk getting rejected by someone, you will never get that big promotion unless you take risks at your job. It is very important to continue to take risks in life. To stop taking risks means to stand still in life. Standing still in life is one of the main causes of depression. These are usually the people afraid to confront the boss and tell him that they demand a raise; they are the ones that allow life to pass them by out of fear. The entire purpose of fear is to stop you from taking a risk. Fear is nothing more then the unknown. If you have always wanted to quit your job and open a shop but you are too afraid to do it, this is because you are afraid of failing and risking what you already have. It is important to learn to take risks in life if you want to be happy, you may not always get the things you risked for, but you will know that you tried, and in the end it does not matter in my opinion if you succeed or not it is how many risks you try to make that is the real test of how successful you are. Just remember if no one took risks we would be a world without flight and probably no automotive vehicles at all, maybe we would have no electricity. So risk truly is needed to improve the world.
Are you asking why you should consider taking an online nursing class? There are many reasons for taking your nursing degree online. Let’s face it. Today, there are so many people that are busy with all that life throws at them that there is just not enough time in the world for a spending four years dedicated to nothing more than living on a college campus and studying. So, if you are wondering why you should consider taking an online nursing class, first ask yourself what you do not like or can not have in a traditional school. Do you have trouble excelling in a traditional classroom? Then online learning may be the best bet for you. You can work at your own pass at your degree and obtain the hours of study that fit your needs. Sure, 4am may not be the best time for others to hold class, but for you, it is the perfect time. There are plenty of other reasons as well. Consider your goals. If you would like to have a bachelor degree in nursing, you traditionally would need to dedicate about four years of full time attendance. With online degree programs, you are likely to cut this down considerably, if you would like to. On the other hand, you will be able to lengthen that time if you need something a bit more flexible and part time. The time frame for you to finish schooling is more up to you than it would be in a traditional school environment. Another benefit to think about is the cost. The cost of a traditional school is much higher, especially figuring in room and board costs. The online school that is accredited for teaching the same curriculum as your traditional school can often cost a fraction of the cost with all the same abilities and benefits for financial aid. If you are still asking why you should consider taking an online nursing class, then you are missing out. Consider what they have to do for you and what you can become if you do take this step.
The idea behind college that a lot of high school graduates do not grasp is that college is not a simple extension of any prior education. To attend college is not just a step up on the educational ladder, like grammar school to junior high to high school. What sets college apart is the very concept of it: it is a crossroads to something else, a limbo of not only education, but exploration as well. Experience college as a winding roadmap destination: to know where it all leads to is beside the point. All the fun to be had is in getting there. You should go to college to meet people. What sets them apart from the kind of folk you would meet in, say, a bar or a shopping mall lies in their interests. College campuses come loaded with behavioral presets; certain people take certain classes, and so on. Discover a niche and follow it along. It may be a passionate interest, or merely a passing one. Very few institutions will offer such benefits, especially from such a collective of varied minds and hearts. Take risks, go out of your way, and establish new modes of how to approach a situation. Explore new surroundings with the desire to conquer. Network. Regardless of what plans may lay in the future, network with those whose own interests spark a common connection. This can create a goldmine of later opportunity and potential. The reality of the real world is inscribed in stone: nobody ever got anywhere on their own. Help those that help you, and vice versa. And who can really say what the future will bring? It may be true to know your destination at the end of college, what you want to be, but always allow room to stretch and to breathe. Study in whatever capacity your mind will allowplete general education to resample what had already been learned in high school. Pick new classes that sound intriguing. Make detours. Take a class that dives into an old childhood interest or one that scares you, just to test your very limits. Explore what was never charted. There may very well be a hidden passion inside of you, for any undiscovered subject. Bring it out into the open and exploit it to your hearts content. Just keep busy. Visit the library and pick random books with neat titles, eat along the small brick walls that line the campus sidewalks, stroll around and inside buildings that do not concern you, (go to parties). Even when you decide to ease up on the reigns of your day, be sure to pull over to a stop along the corner coffee shop; because college extends beyond classes and education. It can tailor to an entire lifestyle, a lifestyle currently in the making. It does not quit. And the idea will always remain the same: to reshape and to remold the prior mind. At the end of it all, will you be the same person as when you began?
Many people were hoping that if the Democrats won control of Congress they would reverse the online gambling ban, but experts doubt they will even try or that if they do that the will be successful. Once the bill was passed and signed into law by the president, it became much harder to reverse the law. The democrats would need to bring up the law and get it to a vote, then after the vote passed it needs to go to the president for his signature. The problem with this is that the current president is the one who signed the bill into law in the first place. Another problem is because the gambling ban was attached to another bill, it means that to reverse the law the entire bill needs to be reversed, but the other part of the bill is for an increase in port security, so any congressmen who recommends reversing this law, will be going on record as trying to reverse the increase in port security. Because of this trying to get the law reversed could ruin a congressman’s chances of ever getting elected to public office again for the rest of their lives. It is more likely that it will have to wait till the end of George Bushes term in office and then get an amendment to the law that reverses only gambling ban part of the law. So if you are on Online Gambling enthusiast and you were hoping that after the election the online gambling ban would just disappear I am sorry to say you were mistaken and that you are going to have to wait a little longer, but that does not mean you need to sit quietly by. The key is to make sure that you are heard, write letters to congressmen, and attend protest rallies anything that will keep this issue in the front of the minds of the politicians so they know that just as the Republicans lost the house so can they. The republicans used the online gambling ban to try to gain votes for them in the last weeks before the election, but it backfired on them and lost them more votes then it brought in. Hopefully the Democrats will learn from the mistakes of the Republicans and will understand that banning something never works, and that it is only thru regulating the online gambling industry that will ensure that it is safe and honest to play and that no underage children manage to play. Other wise I am sure that the Democrats will also see the wrath of the American voters when it comes time for the next elections. The American people are tired of having the government controlling every aspect of their lives and I think this election may have made their point for them. So if the question is will they try to reverse the law I am sure they will try, but how successful they will be is still up in the air, and no one can really know what the outcome will be.
William has been the name of many famous and influential people throughout man’s brief history here on planet earth. To name a few “off the cuff”, we have: William Boyd, Hopalong Cassidy William Boyd, 3rd Earl of Kilmarnock William Boyd, 4th Earl of Kilmarnock William Boyd, the writer William Boyd, western musician William Boyd, the US immunologist William Boyd (Colonel), United States Army Air Forces William Boyd, actor These are just a few, we can add to that right now, with the author of this article, William Boyd, Internet Marketing Professional. Now, if we consider the name William, on its own, and it’s abbreviation, we open up to even more, highly recognized individuals, and they all seem to have an uncanny similarity in their goals, achievements, and values! William Wallace, Scottish legendary hero Will Smith, actor William Shakespeare, poet William Windsor, the Goat! (See my blog for that one) William Windsor, Prince William Over 36 Kings and Noblemen in the last few hundred years Why is that? Is it because the name William has some magical power to determine how individuals act, react, and behave? Or is it because we all become what everyone else expects us to be, based on the achievements of previous Williams? Or could it be that the name William really is a naturally auspicious name? I have dedicated a whole website to the name William, and its many variations such as: Bill, Billy, Will, Willy, Wilhelm, When I look at the meaning of the name ‘William’ I am truly amazed at closely its definition accurately describes the characteristics of the well known Williams, and the not so well known. Now, you could easily argue that the meaning of the name is derived from the characteristics of these famous people, so their roles in life are what modern people use to determine the meaning from the name William. This is an ongoing debate about the theory of nature or nurture, feel free to discuss this at length on my Blog. (link below) What is the meaning of the name William? Here’s one of the most common interpretations: From the Germanic name Wilhelm, which was composed of the elements wil “will, desire” and helm “helmet, protection”. So this can be interpreted to mean that “William” means “need protection”, “To protect” as does a helmet But, what about the vast number of Williams in the world today that can truly say they had no idea that their name means “to protect”? I for one didn’t know about this, until recently, and can honestly say that, protecting has always been my role in life. Without going into a lengthy biography, I can say that 90% of my life has been protecting others. Looking at the short list above, there appears to be another commonality with William, and that is creativity or artistic ability. Is that only because it’s the creative and artistic people that we hear about? Or is it something to do with the name William? These are all interesting points for thought, what are yours?
The wind farm is an alternative energy platform that has existed for years, but most people don’t realize it. It is particularly prevalent in the United Kingdom. Wind Farms in the United Kingdom Wind has been used as a power source for many thousands of years. Windmills were used in many cultures in order to mill grains and harness the power of the wind for daily use. More recently, wind has become a great alternative power source for countries all over the world. Using the power of the wind is relatively simple, while also being ecologically sound and completely renewable. Wind farms are the easiest way to harness large amounts of wind power at a time, and the farms in the UK provide perfect examples. . Wind farms are large collections of wind turbines, all located in the same place, that are generating electricity. In the UK, wind farms are controlled by the British Wind Energy Association. The BWEA operates 127 wind farms with 1618 turbines all over the UK. These wind farms produce 1694.55 megawatts of electricity annually, which is enough electricity to power 947,506 homes a year. Think about that for a minute. The wind farm project produces enough energy to power a fairly large city. These wind farms are incredibly safe compared to other energy sources with no recorded public injuries by wind turbine since the introduction of wind farming. They also produce no waste or pollution, making wind farms very ecologically advantageous. In fact, eight out of ten people are in favor of using wind energy as their power source. Wind energy is also completely renewable, as it takes no fuel or other resources that can be expended. Many people wonder whether wind farms are noisy, or if they affect the area surrounding the farms. The BWEA assures us that this is not the case. Wind farms do not produce excessive noise, and they have not shown any affect on farms, other livestock, or tourism concerns. The wind turbines themselves are quite large, at about 65 meters in diameter and 25 to 80 meters in height, but they are non-disruptive to the area surrounding them. Their efficiency is also pretty impressive, considering the unpredictable nature of wind, with a rating of 60 percent efficiency. Wind is an excellent alternative to other power sources. Wind farms can help to reduce our world's dependence on fossil fuels and other destructive fuel sources, while not adding to the pollution already present in our skies. Choosing wind to power our lives is one way that we, and our governments, can help to reduce the stress on an already battered environment, and also help the economy while we're at it.
If you're an international college applicant, you are probably unfamiliar with the format of the SAT exam. The SAT is normally required for all applicants at most schools. Internationals are required to write the SAT as well as Americans. However, colleges do understand that international students may not be familiar with the SAT (with the exception of internationals studying in American schools abroad) and thus may not do as well as their American counterparts. This is especially true for applicants whose native language is not English. Do colleges give some leniency to international students with regard to the SAT? The answer depends on which college is in question. Some colleges may have a policy whereby if an international applicant scores 2000 or higher, then SATs are out of the way. Many others have no clear policies though. At highly selective institutions, the difference in weightage for Americans and internationals may be small. In my opinion, even as an international, you should strive to do as well as you can on the SAT. There’re many books that are dedicated to SAT preparation on the market; just browse the shelves of any well-stocked bookstore. College Board itself has produced several excellent preparation materials that you should use as your preparation materials. If you can afford it, you can even join one of the many prep courses available. Why is it important? First of all, international students with high critical reading scores have considerable advantages (hook) over other international applicants. As there will be many internationals who willl probably not have scores in the high 700s in the critical reading section, scoring well earns you some advantage over the others. It shows your willingness to learn something totally new to you. Besides, some universities such as Northwestern and Virginia will waive the TOEFL requirement if your criticial reading score is above a certain threshold, as an acknowledgment of your English proficiency. Therefore, doing well on the SAT can only work in your favor.
College students struggling to write the perfect paper often turn to friends or parents for help in correcting everything from punctuation to syntax errors to misspellings. Chances are, however, that unless Mom and Dad are working for The Washington Post, some things are going to fall through the cracks, and junior may be less than thrilled with his final grade. Students have another resource for help polishing those all-important essays: online editorial services like Scribendi. "It's important to have someone check your work before you hand it in," says Chandra Clarke, a director of Scribendi. "Especially if you've been working on it in the wee hours of the morning, as students often do." A variety of research supports the need for an objective set of eyes to critique writing and fix errors. A study by Meredyth Daneman and Murray Stainton of the University of Toronto tested whether proofreading one's own writing is harder than proofreading someone else's. Subjects spent 30 minutes writing an essay, then proofread their own papers as well as those written by others. The results showed that subjects were less able to detect errors in their own essays. The reason? Self-generated text is too familiar to the writer. In other words, people usually see what they expect to see in their own writing, not necessarily what is there. And while most writers will run spelling and grammar checks on papers before turning them in, this is not a foolproof solution. That's because there are two types of spelling errors: non-word errors, which create a string of letters that do not make up a real word, and word errors, in which the misspelling results in a real word that is incorrect in the context of the sentence. Humans catch only 75 percent of word errors, according to Raymond Panko, professor of information technology management at the University of Hawaii. Spell-checkers catch non-word errors but miss word errors - the very mistakes that people have a hard time finding. An editor, however, can provide a fresh set of eyes and catch errors that a student didn't even know existed. In addition, editors tend to look at the text with no preconceptions about what is supposed to be there, so they won't miss those image-hurting mistakes. Some services like Scribendi go a step further by offering constructive criticism and explaining word usage issues and standard writing practices. Students get a better document while learning how to improve their own writing. - NU
The old clichй, "If you want a friend, get a dog" still stands in the 21st Century. It is well established in the medical community that animals can do much to extend the human life span as well as improve the quality of life. Don't live on or vicariously through your computer. A pastor once said his job was to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable. Thus we have the difference between a real live pet and an inanimate electro-mechanical object - in this case the personal computer. The pet comforts while the computer, improperly used and/or over used, is a thief and a murderer. Besides, the computer, especially if you run a Microsoft Operating System and Microsoft production software, requires much more maintenance than does a pet. This alone is enough to drive most users' blood pressure through the roof. How many times do you suspect that needs to happen before it begins to take a toll on the human body? It is even more aggravating than the days when we only received three (3) snowy channels on a small black and white television and each channel required another trip outside in the rain, in the cold, in the snow, in the heat to adjust the huge antenna attached to a corner of the house which spilled the rain directly into your face as you looked up to see in which direction the antenna was pointing. If you were lucky someone was in the house calling to you when you got the best picture. You know what I am talking about... like when your computer locks up with a box popping up on the monitor's screen saying it needs to restart now, and won't let you do anything else until you acquiesce and reboot. There goes your last few minutes of work. Another blood pressure jump! It sure is for the Tennessee Mountain Man! Father may know best, but mother knows even better and she always made the children set across the room from the TV concerned about it ruining their vision. Now that same mom allows the children and grandchildren to set on top of a twenty-one (21) inch monitor, even closer to a laptop, and play games ad infinitum. The result being more and more of our children are wearing glasses and contact lenses at younger and younger ages. Mom also insisted that little ones spend much more time outside playing in the yard than obsessing over the magic box in the corner, and the children were healthier. There were fewer cases of childhood diabetes and hardly any childhood obesity. Children learned skills greater than cheating x-box and PSP, and mom and pop never heard of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. The computer man and everyone else is seemingly required to work on or at computer consoles to some extent these days. As a result, the entire family now either suffers from a computer related ailment or is at real risk of developing one. With the advent and prevalence of the personal computer and gaming gizmos, the heart, which is a muscle, gets little or no exercise. As if the TV did not create enough couch potatoes resulting in what amounts to atrophy of the heart muscle, the PC seems to have claimed the remainder of man. A computer cannot hold you on cold nights or enjoy a walk hand-n-hand with you in the moonlight. It cannot comfort you when you are sick or improve your mood when you are sad. It cannot feed you when you are hungry nor give you a drink when you are thirsty... at least not yet. The PC cannot yet carry on a civil or reasoned conversation. Irrespective of one's addictions and all the attractions on the internet, it is not true social interaction and it certainly cannot satisfy the libido try as some may. Used improperly it can and does drive wedges between husbands and wives, and between children and parents. Like a drug, once addicted, and it is addictive, it can cost one his job and it has. Like a nosy gossiping neighbor or ticked off lover, it has the propensity to tell the world (friend and foe alike) everything it knows (both good and bad) about you. And, in case you didn't know, there are hackers from people with malicious intentions, to your employer, to Microsoft, to insurance companies, to financial institutions, to the government who have the ability to ask your computer what it knows about you whenever they wish. And, your computer... your friend in whom you confide everything, like a spurned lover is more than willing to betray her paramour and spill her guts literally. My computer... my friend? With such friends who needs enemies? If you don't know how to protect yourself from a gabby computer you might want to seek the help of professionals like the folks at Remote Helpdesk 1. Now shut the glib computer down, and go outside and play.

Plastics are synthetically produced non-metallic compounds. It can be molded into various forms and hardened for commercial use. Plastic molding products can be seen everywhere. Examples are jars, protective caps, plastic tubes, grips, toys, bottles, cases, accessories, kitchen utensils and a lot more. Even the keyboard and the mouse that you use are made through plastic molding. Even the plastic parts of the chair that you are sitting on are created this way. The basic idea in plastic molding is inserting molten liquid plastic into a ready shaped mold, for example the mold of a bottle. It will then be allowed to cool, then the mold will be removed to reveal the plastic bottle. Plastic molding can also custom-mold a wide variety of plastic products including: garden pots, cabinets, office trays and boxes, barriers, barricades and traffic signage and displays for product and marketing promotions. If you are planning to go into a plastic molding business, you should first know the different processes. Choose from a plastic molding process that fits your budget, your expertise, and your resources. Here are basic definitions of various methods of plastic molding. The Plastic Molding Processes: 1. Injection Molding In Injection Molding, melted plastic is forced into a mold cavity. Once cooled, the mold can be removed. This plastic molding process is commonly used in mass-production or prototyping of a product. Injection molding machines were made in the 1930’s. This can be used to mass produce toys, kitchen utensils, bottle caps, and cell phone stands to name a few. 2. Blow Molding Blow molding is like injection molding except that hot liquid plastic pours out of a barrel vertically in a molten tube. The mold closes on it and forces it outward to conform to the inside shape of the mold. When it is cooled, the hollow part is formed. Examples of blow molding products are bottles, tubes and containers. Equipments needed in setting-up a blow molding business are relatively higher than injection molding. 3pression Molding In this type of plastic molding, a slug of hard plastic is pressed between two heated mold halvespression molding usually uses vertical presses instead of the horizontal presses used for injection and blow molding. The parts formed are then air-cooled. Prices of equipments used for compression molding are moderate. 4. Film Insert Molding This plastic molding technique imbeds an image beneath the surface of a molded part. A material like film or fabric is inserted into a mold. Plastic is then injected. 5. Gas Assist Molding Also called gas injection molding is used to create plastic parts with hollow interiors. Partial shot of plastic is then followed by high-pressure gas to fill the mold cavity with plastic. 6. Rotational Molding Hollow molds packed with powdered plastic are secured to pipe-like spokes that extend from a central hub. The molds rotate on separate axes at once. The hub swings the whole mold to a closed furnace room causing the powder to melt and stick to the insides of the tools. As the molds turn slowly, the tools move into a cooling room. Here, sprayed water causes the plastic to harden into a hollow part. In this type of plastic molding, tooling costs are low and piece prices are high. Cycle time takes about 40-45 minutes. 7. Structural Foam Molding Structural foam molding is a process of plastic molding usually used for parts that require thicker walls than standard injection molding. Inserting a small amount of nitrogen or chemical blow agent into the plastic material makes the walls thicker. Foaming happens as the melted plastic material enters the mold cavity. A thin plastic skin forms and solidifies in the mold wall. This type of plastic molding can be used with any thermoplastic that can be injection molded. 8. Thermoforming In this plastic molding process, sheets of pre-extruded rigid plastics are horizontally heated and sucked down into hollow one-piece tools. When the hot plastic solidifies, its shape conforms to that of the mold. Tooling costs are usually low and piece prices vary on the machinery. Plastic molding is a very technical process. It needs experts in this type of manufacturing business for it to be competitive in the market. Therefore, a very scientific and systematic study should be first made before going into this endeavor.

A new system that lets teachers get immediate feedback and real-time accountability for all students in the classroom is getting high grades. The wireless response system was created by a provider of computerized assessment and progress-monitoring tools for pre-K-12 schools. It provides teachers with comprehensive real-time data in an easy-to-read graphical format so they can optimize their lessons and deliver individualized instruction. "We just recently started using the Renaissance Classroom Response System and already are seeing a difference. The immediate feedback we receive is such a great way to gauge the progress of each student, and helps me determine the lessons I need to review," said Dawn Deher, English Teacher, Milford (Delaware) High School. "My students' enthusiasm and engagement in class has increased substantially. Several of my students have said to me that they wished they had the Responder available to them in their other classes because they see how it helps them in the learning process." How It Works The Classroom Response System (CRS) uses leading radio frequency (RF) technology and best of class, easy-to-use interactive software with a remote wireless Renaissance Responder handheld device. The Responder encourages participation by all students by allowing them to respond to verbal prompts or answer questions on quizzes and tests. The real-time scoring helps educators provide immediate intervention and individualized attention for each student, supporting explicit systematic direct instruction of skills. By using the system, educators can wirelessly send questions, individual notes, and assignments to a high-resolution LCD graphical display on the student's Responder, eliminating the need to print documents or use a projector or TV screen. Classroom Efficiency The system provides significant classroom efficiency in identifying problems in real time-and when they occur-so teachers can spend more time teaching. Grading student assignments and creating tests and quizzes is very time consuming. Now, with this program from Renaissance Learning, Inc., teachers can create the test questions in a fraction of the time it takes using traditional methods.
