Chess Tactics

Tactics in chess refers to a sequence of moves that reduces the other player's choices. Chess strategy and tactics are not the same things. Tactics are at a more definite, local level than strategy, which is broader and is the overall design of how we intend to defeat our opponent.

In tactics, we can either defend or attack - taking no action is not possible, (as in real life!) I like to think of the competition between human beings as '2 player chess', because more and more games are played with machines as the opponent.

A piece is in an attacking position if it can capture an opponent's piece in the next move. A piece is said to be defending when it is in such a place that it could capture the opponent's piece, if that piece followed through with an attack. Normally, both players will judge the respective value of the pieces in question, and decide how to move. This all depends on the value the pieces have in the general strategy. maybe one opponent intends to sacrifice his piece as part of his strategy. Sacrificing certain pieces in the general interest of victory is one of the central tactics of chess.

If the opponent launches an offensive, we can use various tactics, which will depend on the board layout and our general strategy. We might try to seize the attacking piece, or move our piece out of the way. Could we place one of our pieces between the two, and end the attack that way? Perhaps we can mount a fast counter attack to divert the opponent from his tactic. There are many another ways in which we can attack or defend, but tactics fall into defined categories. A beginner chess player would do well to study one of the many excellent books about chess tactics and gradually develop the themes into their own strategy. Let's take a quick look at just two standard categories of tactics.

Discovered attack

This is a move which permits an attack by an opponent's piece, by moving one of our pieces out of the way of the attack. (If the attacked piece is our king, the tactic is referred to as a discovered check). This is a potent tactic, as the piece that was moved out of the way can then be used to counter attack. In this way you launch a second attack, which has the effect of putting your opponent off guard and on the defensive.

The Fork

This is a great move and definitely one of my favorites, especially if it involves a knight. It can be put in place when the other player doesn't notice the set up, while concentrating on a false offensive elsewhere on the board, for example. Essentially, a piece gets into a position where it can capture any one of two opponent pieces nearby by. Ordinarily, the opponent can only save one piece by moving it out of the way, and he must make up his mind which piece to lose. Of course, if one of the pieces is the King, then he is obliged by the rules of chess to remove it from this check situation. Queens are also great pieces to employ in this tactic, moving as they can in eight different directions.

Fork attacks are called 'Relative', if the pieces being attacked are Pawns, Knights, Bishops, Rooks, or Queen. The fork tactic is known as 'Absolute', when one of the attacked pieces includes the King.

Mold Restoration: Look Out Mold!

When someone mentions the word mold what images come to mind? Initially you see green, brown, black furry fungus right growing? The clusters vary in size and can spread quickly taking over an entire surface fast. It is never a pretty image. Mold is very serious especially when it invades your home. Mold is not only unsightly but can also be incredibly harmful to the heath of the occupants of the home.

Mold grows in environments that allow it to grow. If you have an area that is dark, damp than mold will be attracted to it. Places such as basements, bathrooms and laundry rooms are the number one areas that attract mold growth. Mold can grow anywhere though with a little bit of humidity and moisture. I have seen mold in attics, gym bags, underneath carpet and outside on areas the sun does not reach the siding. Mold restoration is the next step once you have mold. It consists of mold killer, hard work and lots of circulating dry air. If you know any area in your home is more susceptible to mold growth it is best to take necessary precautions to make sure an infestation does not occur. For instance, basements should have a dehumidifier to keep the moisture levels in check. Fresh air is important also especially during seasons that keep your house closed up often. Open the windows just a crack and turn on fans during the winter and summer seasons to make sure your home does not become susceptible to mold. Also, make sure you clean regularly using anti-bacterial products. They will likely kill spores, if present, before you even see them.

What happens if you are too late and mold has already found its way into your home? For instance, we purchased a home in which the toilet leaked and mold had started to grow behind the toilet and on the carpet in the next room. First we made sure that the leak was fixed and then decided that our mold issue was both major and minor. The mold in the bathroom on the ceramic tile and wood molding was easily removed using a mold killer solution and thoroughly cleaning the area and then allowing it to dry using oscillating fans to keep the flow of air going to help the drying process. We then determined it would be best to remove the carpet and apply mold killer to the subflooring and allowing the area to dry. It was best to replace the carpet because carpet is one area that it is tough to clean good enough to prevent the mold growth from returning.

Mold restoration is not anything to mess around with. It is best to find a mold remediation company if mold is in sensitive places such as attics where both wood and insulation is involved. Mold removal companies have special products and equipment to handle situations that normal homeowners can occur. It is especially important to have the number of a professional on hand that works with mold and water extraction after a disaster such as a flood or fire. This will help alleviate long term issues your home could end up with.

Steel Buildings Inspire Creativity

Steel buildings are fast becoming the standard for industrial uses. They go up quickly, are less expensive than traditional constructions and are, in many cases, safer than buildings made of traditional building materials. If there's a new store, storage facility, factory or office building going up in your town, chances are that they're putting up steel buildings. With the many changes and advances in metal building technology, however, there's a good chance you won't even recognize the new construction as a typical steel buildings. Thanks to those advances, steel and metal buildings are also a great solution for many home and small business construction projects. If you're considering an addition to your home for storage, workshop or additional living space, these projects based on steel building construction may inspire you to think outside the box-shaped house mold.

Plant Nursery: Greenhouses aren't always the best option for starting and growing plants in a Northern environment. Steel buildings are an alternative to the traditional wood-frame-with-plastic-sheeting construction for home greenhouses. Steel is sturdier - you won't have to replace plastic sheets two or three times during the season, nor will you have to worry about mildew, mold and wood rot destroying the frame and infecting your plants. Insulate the building, set up grow lights on a timer and a drip irrigation system, and you'll have the ideal setup to start seedlings or house a container vegetable garden through a cold winter.

Auto Shop: For the auto or motorcycle hobbyist, metal buildings provide the ideal solution for work space. You can get your hobby cars out of the garage and yard, and set up space where you can work on motors indoors. Steel garages are far more affordable than a traditional wood structure. Build one over a concrete floor, add electricity and outlets for power tools and storage shelves to hold your supplies, and you'll always have somewhere to indulge yourself in your favorite automotive hobby.

Wood Shop: Get your power tools out of the basement where the noise and sawdust annoys the entire household. Just pick out an 8-by-10 foot space in your yard to set up a , run electricity and lighting to it, and you'll have your own custom wood shop where you can build and tinker to your heart's content. With the many finishes and styles available, you can even erect steel buildings that perfectly match the style and color of your house so no one in the neighborhood will complain about the appearance.

Whether you need storage space, a home office or just a place to hang up your hobby tools and supplies, steel buildings are an unexpected and surprisingly affordable option. Before you invest a moment of time into digging a foundation for a traditional wood frame building, take a look at the advantages of choosing steel buildings for your intended purpose.

I Love Kosher Wine And Food - A Chardonnay From Israel

Ella Valley Vineyards was founded in 1997 in the Judean Hills of northern Israel While workers prepared the ground for planting the vines they discovered remnants of a settlement from the Second Temple Period (that's at least two thousand years ago) including an ancient wine press. This winery produces about 200,000 bottles a year and sells about two thirds of their grapes to other wine makers. They hand harvest the grapes at night to prevent any fermentation before the grapes reach the winery. Their wines are raised partly in oak barrels and partly in stainless steel. This particular wine comes from two vineyards, on situated at 350-400 meters (about 1000 feet) and the other at 700 meters (about 2000 feet). High elevation means the grapes have a long time to ripen without becoming too alcoholic. This wine is kosher for Passover but is not mevushal (flash pasturized).

OUR WINE REVIEW POLICY All wines that we taste and review are purchased at the full retail price.

Wine Reviewed Chardonnay 2007 KP (Ella Valley Vineyards) 14% alcohol about $20

There were no marketing materials so let me quote in part Daniel Rogov, arguably the premier Israeli wine critic. "…showing a gentle hand with the wood, with the nose and palate opening with hints of honey, flaky pastry and minerals, and goes on to show yellow plum and citrus blossoms. Well structured, long, and elegant…" And now for my review.

At the first sips the Chardonnay was lightly acidic tasting of tangerines. In fact it had lovely acidity. The initial meal centered around a commercial chicken schnitzel. The wine was feathery with fine oak that was a little overdone. When I added some Louisiana cayenne pepper sauce the wine didn't change much but the oak got worse. The side was boxed zucchini pancakes made with onions and carrots. The wine was applely and now the oak was better under control. With fresh pineapple the oak predominated.

The following meal started with a Middle-Eastern specialty kube; ground beef in crushed bulghar jackets in a lightly acidic broth brimming with Swiss Chard. The Chardonnay tasted of bananas. It was slightly sweet with pleasant acidity. The meal continued with a purchased barbecued chicken breast in a light soya sauce. The wine was quite long and somewhat sweet, tasting of tangerines. With the dessert of fresh strawberries the wine had great acidity and fantastic length.

My final meal was an Atlantic salmon steak that had been marinated in a honey soya sauce mixture. The Chardonnay was elegant, subtle, and long. The side of potato patties shortened the wine but it was still quite present, mostly tasting of tangerines.

Before the cheeses I tasted this wine with Matjes herring. The Chardonnay was elegant and lengthy with oak on the finish. The first cheese was a 4% creamed cottage cheese. The wine tasted of light citrus and honey. The second cheese was a Wisconsin Swiss. The Chardonnay was nutty (like the Swiss) and acidic. It had good length and balance with some citrus. Dessert was a French lemon pie with a buttery crust. This Chardonnay thinned but its lemony taste accompanied the pie. But the wine really couldn't keep up with the pie, it was wasted.

Final verdict. The Internet tells me that this wine is available for $20 in the United States. Frankly, I would buy it at that price and try to avoid the oaky pairings. But my local price in the upper twenties is a deal breaker.

Levi Reiss has authored or co-authored ten books on computers and the Internet, but would rather just drink fine German or other wine, accompanied by the right foods. He teaches various computer classes at an Ontario French-language community college. Check out his global wine website with a weekly column reviewing $10 wines and new sections writing about (theory) and tasting (practice) organic and kosher wines.

Beat Bacne - A Holistic Program Will Get Rid Of Back Acne Quickly And Permanently

Bacne is short for 'back acne'. It can be an embarrassing ailment because the skin on your back covers such a large area. A cure for this problem is now available. The holistic approach has a proven record for getting rid of bad acne and will make your skin smooth and even-toned.

Bacne develops when hyperactive sebaceous glands start secreting excess oil. The excess oil combines with dead skin cells to clog up hair follicles. The blocked pores are a perfect breeding ground for acne-causing bacteria. They become infected and progress to some form of acne such as blackheads or, in more serious cases, cysts and nodules. Bacteria are always present in the hair follicles but are never really a problem until blocked pores give them a place to multiply.

The back is especially prone to acne because it has a higher concentration of sebaceous glands compared to other parts of the body. The skin on your back is also thicker and tougher, and so the glands tend to be larger and manufacture more oil. This means that back acne is generally more intractable than acne on your face and is more often characterised by nodules and cysts.

Many sufferers try to eliminate bacne by controlling their perspiration. Others waste money on high-priced over-the-counters that cleanse the skin. Such treatments are largely ineffective. They may reduce the severity of the problem but are not a long-term solution because they target the symptoms of acne (e.g. the pimples on your skin) and not its causes.

The sebaceous glands of acne sufferers have a genetic tendency to produce extra oil when there is a hormonal imbalance. Hormonal shifts are associated with life cycle changes such as puberty, but they can also have triggers. Examples of common triggers include: a build up of toxins in the body, stress brought on by worry or insomnia, allergies to drugs or chemicals in some foods, and the presence of certain types of bacteria in the body.

If you're serious about getting rid of bacne, then you must choose a treatment that neutralises all your acne triggers. You need a treatment that:

1. Restores and maintains your body's natural internal equilibrium

2. Can get rid of bacne fast and permanently

3. Kills off all types of skin acne, including severe forms such as cysts

4. Follows a methodical, well-organised format and is easy to incorporate in your current lifestyle

5. Is easily customised into a strategy that satisfies your body's unique requirements.

6. Will provide you with ongoing advice and support from knowledgeable health professionals

7. Will make you look and feel better, and restore your self-esteem and self-assurance

The holistic method is a safe, natural alternative with an excellent record for getting rid of severe acne on all parts of the body. It does not rely on costly drugs or creams; it is straightforward and works quickly. Most important, the holistic approach can be customised to satisfy your body's specific needs and neutralise all the triggers that bring on stubborn bacne. It's the favoured remedy of thousands of people, and will take you down the path to a life without bacne.

The 'Acne No More' system is a premium, step-by-step holistic program with a proven record for getting rid of bacne. It has all the advantages the holistic approach has to offer and will provide you with all the benefits described in this article.

Figuring Out Your Kitchen Remodel Budget

If you are considering starting a kitchen remodeling project, it is important that you start out by preparing a budget. The reason that you have to do this is because a project like this can quickly spiral out of control. After you have been thinking about the updates you would like to make to your kitchen for so long, it is very easy to forget about the costs. You get so excited about making the updates that you have been thinking about for years, that you just start ordering stuff. If you do not keep track of the costs, you may find out that by the time your kitchen cabinets show up, you do not have any money left over for anything else.

One of the best ways to control spending for your new kitchen is to follow the general rule of thumb. Most contractors will tell you that your kitchen remodeling project should not cost more than 15% of the overall value of your home. Information is the best way to make the best decision. When you start planning for your remodeling project, talk to your friends or family that have recently completed similar projects. They will be able to provide you with recommendations and examples of what they paid for certain items or services.

You can also use the internet to research and gain more valuable information about each piece of your remodeling plan. You should expect the costs for the appliances, cabinets, flooring, countertop, etc. to take up at least half of your available budget. However, if you tend to like higher end items or if you have more appliances, etc. than most people do this cost can rise to nearly 2/3 of your budget. The remainder of your budget will be mostly for labor. However, there may also be smaller fees for things like design costs and permit fees.

Most people agree that the best way for you to start making plans for costs is to start out in your own kitchen. Look around and make a list of everything that is in your kitchen that you will be replacing. It is also a good idea to draw an outline of your kitchen space and include dimensions of the space you have.

This list is where you will start your research. Take it to the appliance stores in your area and start looking for the replacements that you want. Some people like to start out with looking at the items they love and then look at their budget. Chances are the total of all of the items you would really love to have will be too high. Then you can start looking at where you can start cutting corners by finding appliances, etc. that you still like, but that may not be as expensive. Other people prefer the reverse approach. They will start by picking out appliances, cabinets and counter tops that are a starting point, and then upgrade them according to the extra room they have in their budget.

The Humble Coffee Plant

Coffee is the second largest commodity in the world, only oil has a bigger turnover. Coffee is enjoyed the world over and is the planet's most popular drink bar water itself. Coffee houses dominate the high street and coffee is a part of everyday life. Before it reaches our coffee cup however the coffee has to be grown, cultivated and harvested.

Coffee trees will only flourish in the central region of the planet bounded by the Tropics. That is between the Tropic of Cancer in the Northern Hemisphere and the Tropic of Capricorn in the Southern Hemisphere. Coffee will not readily grow outside the tropics at least not for commercial purposes.

Though there are many different species of coffee plant, only the Arabica and Robusta varieties are cultivated for beverage use. The coffee plant is a perennial evergreen that belongs to the Rubiaceae family. Coffee plants may grow up to 30 feet tall if not pruned, so many refer to them as trees not plants. It is interesting to note that many people think coffee beans are picked from coffee plants, when in fact coffee 'cherries' are harvested from coffee trees! In fact the green coffee beans are found inside the cherries. The coffee bean is naturally green and only goes a golden brown colour on roasting.

Young coffee plants are grown in nurseries for the first year or so. after which they are transplanted into the main coffee plantation. The young plants will need to be carefully looked after for 5 years before they will begin to produce their first 'fruit' or coffee cherries. The fruit are called cherries because of their deep cherry colour when ripe. A successful coffee tree will produce a crop for as long as 25 years before it will need to be replaced.

The fruit blossom is a delicate white star shaped flower with a pleasant fragrance similar to jasmine. It takes roughly 9 months from flower to the ripe cherry ready for harvesting. There is a problem however. A typical coffee tree will exhibit all stages of development of the fruit at the same time on the same tree or even on the same branch. it is usual to find both ripe cherries and flowers on the same branch. This makes automatic harvesting by stripping the plant almost impossible and hence most coffee picking is still done by hand even today!

Globally about 20% of coffee produced is Robusta, the majority 80% being Arabica. Arabica is more expensive in general, produces the best tasting coffee and is the choice for coffee connoisseurs. Robusta coffee is considered to be of lower quality that Arabica, though it does contain more caffeine. Robusta is often used as a bulk filler to a coffee blend.

Although coffee trees like the tropical weather they do not enjoy long hours of unbroken sunshine. Consequently the best coffees are often found near mountainsides where the taller forest trees offer a partial shade. Coffee plantations are often purposely built in such regions so as to obtain the best quality crop.

Wheelchair Ramps: Making The End User Safe

Wheelchair ramps have become a staple in American businesses, thankfully. In 1990 the American with Disabilities Act set forth guidelines that make it law that places that operate for the public must allow equal access to all people making wheelchair ramps a staple in our culture. The act allows for a zero tolerance attitude when it comes to discrimination against the disabled and their access into public buildings.

When thinking about installing wheelchair accessible access to your home or business consider hiring a contractor. Professional handicap ramp installers are trained in the guidelines set forth by the ADA. They have a trained eye when it comes to obstacles that hinder the use of public spaces for people with disabilities or special needs. Professionals also know the regulations when it comes to building a ramp, the best materials to use and measures to make the ramp accessible and safe for use with wheelchairs, walkers and other devices that make mobility easier for those with special circumstances.

The ADA does list specifications on their website for do it yourselfers. If you have decided to tackle building a ramp you will need to review specifications and research materials. Wood ramps are beautiful and blend well into existing landscapes. The one drawback is that wood requires yearly maintenance. This might be offset by the difference in price that exists between metal ramps and wooden ramps.

Ramps Specifications:

1) The minimum width for a wheelchair ramp is thirty six inches. This is the amount of space that is needed to comfortably maneuver a wheelchair on a ramp. Widths can be larger to accommodate two-way traffic. Most often you will see ramps built wider for this purpose. Of course if this is a ramp you are installing at your home you most likely don't have to worry about that issue.

2) Wheelchair accessible ramps must contain railings/edges to keep users safe from spilling over the side. It is recommended to build the ramp with side rails that include handrails.

3) All ramps must have a landing where the door meets the ramps. This landing has to be a minimum of sixty inches long. This allows for the door to easily swing in or out and leaves the wheelchair user room to maneuver around.

4) It is necessary that nonslip and slip resistant materials be used for the floor of the ramp. This makes it a lot safer especially when the weather is less than dry.

These are guidelines that are set forth by the ADA you should look into your local regulations and areas specifications to determine any other needs you might run in to when building your wheelchair accessible ramps.

When deciding what type of material is should be used consider the weight of the wheelchair and occupant and it is also important to remember that electric wheelchairs are heavier and need to be accommodated for. It is also important that materials such as screws are used instead of nails. Wood should be pretreated to prevent rot. Anchor bolts should be used to secure the support posts to the houses structure to add support. Also make sure that the slope and angle are correct. Slopes that are too steep make it difficult for wheelchairs to go up and too fast to control on descend. Also, include a beveled section at the end of the ramp to allow for a gradual exit and entrance.

Ramps are very common in today's landscape. The designs and selections available to make them a natural piece of your home or business are endless. Make sure you take it to account the end user for your ramp project and follow regulations and guidelines set forth by the ADA and local authorities. If you do you will be pleased with the end result.

Does the college offer online classes as well? This is something that is becoming more and more popular. The economy has made it hard to not work, and therefore some students do not have time to attend a campus at all times. Therefore some may want a college that offers online classes that are available to complete at your own time and pace. If this is not a necessity to you, you should ensure that the classes are smaller especially if you feel you are going to need help and tutoring on some things.

The regular workout classes and dietary regimen followed in the resorts that hold these retreats enable participants to actually enjoy the process of losing weight. This is something that regular gym memberships cannot accomplish.

Most weight loss spas encourage meditation to help you refocus on your efforts to shed off those excess pounds, so recreate the look by adding in a water feature and some green plants. Leave the room as bare as possible but with a few good collections to read when you find the time. Have a point or object of focus and make the room as clean as possible. Scented candles and soft music and lighting add to the effect.

Next, replace your pantry with all natural foods, recipes, and health weight loss supplements such as the Shakeology meal replacement shake. Weight loss spas introduce healthy eating practices to their participants, so you should try to copy this as much as possible. Go online and scour for recipes that are well-balanced and low in calories. You can never go wrong with the rainbow of fruits and vegetables. Prepare slices of fruit mixes in the refrigerator so you have quick snack options. Your breakfast, lunch and dinner should be comprised of natural healthy foods that are low in fat, rich in complex carbohydrates and proteins.

Once you have prepared your environment, set up a schedule to follow. Start your day in your home weight loss spa with an early morning jog, walk or Yoga regimen. For your weight loss classes, you can follow DVD workouts or incorporate a hiking or swimming regimen to your day. After each weight loss class, make sure that you find ways to pamper yourself. A luxurious bath or a contemplative and quiet time in your meditation room is a great motivational reward for all your hard work.

Finally, to simulate the group therapy discussions that usually happen in a real weight loss spa, you can invite some friends over to share your spa experience with you. Admittedly, this takes more preparation, but limit your group to those really close to you so you don't have to worry about how your simple home weight loss spa will look like to them.

All About Nurses

People see nurses as highly-compensated professionals in white gowns, but there is more to a nurse than just that. Behind the salaries and the white gowns, what really do you know about a nurse? It is essential that one sees the hardships of a person before one starts judging what is easy and what is not. In a nurse's case, it is essential that one looks past the common misconceptions about them.

On the average, a nurse has an hourly salary range of $19-$36. Working overtime could make them earn twice as much as this hourly rate. Of course, working in intensive and acute care hospitals would get you higher salary rates. Those working in emergency rooms typically earn higher too. In this part, many people are correct about nursing being a high-paying profession. Every year, a nurse could earn as low as $40,300 and as much as $78,600.

Around 90% of the nurse population is female, but the remaining number for the male is still significantly large since there are more than 3 million registered nurses in the country. There are roughly 3 million nurse jobs in the United States, and more than 60% of these are in hospitals. Job opportunities are many and, as already said, the pay is high.

You could never be an effective nurse if you do not care about life. Every day, you would deal with many people in many different situations. A nurse would have to be as caring and as compassionate as possible. Yes, there are difficult times and they call for quick and grave decisions, and this is also the reason why a nurse is trained to make decisions under stress and pressure.

If you want to be a nurse, you need to get your high school diploma. You need to find a good college that would teach you the course in an efficient manner.

The exam is made up of many parts, and the review takes more than months for one who wants to become a nurse.

Nursing courses would determine how a nurse would take care of a patient, communicate with them and relate with them. They would teach a nurse about the theories and concepts of nursing and research. There would also be classes where a nurse would deal with legal responsibilities and values of a good nurse, and the risks of the job need to be learned too. A nurse would always be in contact with people, and knowing how a man is affected by health and illnesses is a good way to start.

Nurses also need to keep track of all the latest medical equipments especially those that they have the authority to use. Once a nurse, you should never stop learning. You need to improve in the field as you are in it.

Can Orange Juice Provide Relief to Plantar Fasciitis? 4 Tips for Heel Pain Relief

When plantar fasciitis is causing heel pain, a glass of juice is nice; however it will not provide relief. If relief is what you are after and would like to try to ease the pain at home, try frozen juice.

Juice concentrates come in a cylindrical container that will roll along the bottom of your foot. When your plantar fasciitis is causing pain grab a frozen juice concentrate. Right out of the freezer it may be too cold so you may want to place a towel over the container. This will create a barrier so that the frost does not add to any discomfort.

Before placing your foot on top of a frozen juice container be certain that it is sealed and do not apply too much pressure. The safety of your juice container and the floor below are at stake here. From a seated position you will gently roll the frozen juice container along the arch of your foot to your heel and back again. A few minutes of this can provide some relief to the pain associated with plantar fasciitis.

Heel pain that does not subside should be evaluated by a doctor. If you find that you are limping in the morning, when you first get out of bed, plantar fasciitis is the likely culprit.

After rolling your feet over the juice concentrate you can easily mix up a beverage to enjoy and relax. Resting your plantar fascia is important. When the plantar fascia becomes irritated, inflamed or torn, it will need time to heal. Spend a little more time with your feet up and less activity that may have caused the strain on your plantar fascia.

The plantar fascia is the thick ligament that connects your heel to your toes and is one of the most common causes of heel pain. Some of the common causes of this condition are a high arch, high heeled shoes, running or being overweight. A tight Achilles tendon can also be to blame. Because of this stretching your calf muscles can relieve tension on your plantar fascia.

When the heel pain becomes frequent and nagging it is time to see a doctor. Heel pain is often a complaint that people take too long to correct. One of the easiest ways to treat this type of heel pain is with prescription orthotics. Depending upon the severity of the injury (plantar fasciitis is generally caused by overuse, that causes strain and tearing of the plantar fascia) there are many treatment options. Surgery for plantar fasciitis is a last resort. There are many treatment options that may be recommended prior to surgery.

Training DVD's Available for CNA's

Becoming a CNA can be intimidating, and working as a CNA can be one of the most demanding jobs around at times. There is an ever-growing need for nursing assistants and therefore more and more people are looking into this profession. When it comes to training, there are several resources available to help you along the way. Before you can work as an aide, you need to complete a training program that can last an average of a few weeks to 3 or 4 months. It all depends on what your state's requirements are.

One of these helpful tools is DVD's. There are several ways these types of DVD's can be helpful. They are often divided into a variety of segments that hit every skill that you will come across when working in the field. They are great for showing hands-on skills which are designed to help you with real world situations.

There are some that focus more on basic skills and others that are going to go more into detail with the harder and more complex skills. There may be some that show proper care for getting a patient dressed, as well as taking vital signs, oral care, and feeding a patient. You will learn how to transfer a patient as well as how to bathe them and help with personal hygiene.

The more complex videos may include cleaning a catheter, changing a colostomy bag, weighing a patient, and doing range of motion with a patient. There are also other modules that are more focused on learning about HIPAA and OSHA regulations in the medical field. This is something that is required regardless of what field you go into in the medical field. Not following or sticking these to regulations and laws can result in jail time or other fines. They can often lead to you losing your license and not being eligible to get re-certified.

These legal issues basically talk about patient confidentiality and other issues such as damage to patient property, theft, assault and violence. Medical negligence is also covered in these modules.

There is a hands-on portion of the exam as well as will test your knowledge on skills that are chosen by the test giver.

Working as a CNA can be rewarding, but is going to be demanding as you are the person that has more contact with the patient that any other person. These training modules are being used to help get more into detail and show how certain things are done, and have shown to help increase test scores and students understanding of things. You need to pass both portions of the test before applying for your license. You will also be tested on things such as diets for diabetics and those who are on low cholesterol or low sodium diets.

Eshu and the Road To Enlightenment

Eshu is the orisha that is honored and revered in Yoruba, Santeria, and Candomblé religions. He is the protector of travelers. He is the deity that presides over crossroads. He has power over fortune and misfortune and is the personification of death. He is also known as the deity of chaos and trickery. He is the orisha of tough love, and teaches hard lessons that people can learn from. Lastly, he is the messenger.

However, Eshu is much more than that. His holy number is three, which can represent the Son, the Father, and the Holy Spirit in the Christian fate. The number three also represents the law of creation. There is the positive polarity of energy, the negative polarity, and the combination of the two creates the universal force known as ashé in Yoruba.

The crossroads has four elements, which can represent the different aspects of the human mind. It is divided into four parts, the conscious mind, the subconscious mind, the super conscious mind, and divine intelligence. The conscious mind contains all of your waking thoughts, ideas, and cognitive abilities and is best known as your reality. The subconscious mind consists of buried thoughts, beliefs, and concepts. Your worse fears are hidden here. Many people are unaware of all the pain, anger, and fear that are tucked away in the dark recesses of the subconscious mind. The super consciousness is a part of your mind that is connected to divine intelligence or in modern terms, the Universe.

If you have ever heard of the term collective consciousness, you will understand how the super consciousness aspect of the mind works. It is a plane of existence that allows you to connect with a congenial force that binds and creates virtually all aspects of the physical world. In other words, it is the world of the invisible. The last aspect of the human mind is divine intelligence. From this stage, a person is able to tap into a vast pool of knowledge. Many spiritual healers tap into divine intelligence realm for guidance.

A popular story of Eshu is of him walking down the street. The people on the left side think that his hat is red. The people on the right think that his hat is black. A battle ensues. Eshu takes off his hat and shows them that it is black on one side, and red on another. In this lesson, Eshu talks about the constant conflict that exists between the subconscious and conscious mind. In this case, one side is completely oblivious of the other. In life, people are unaware that many of their desires and much of their decisions are made based on thoughts and emotions that come from the subconscious part of the mind.

Negative thoughts, both in the conscious and subconscious parts of the mind can affect decision making. When this happens, conflict arises, bringing misfortune and in some extreme cases, death. People need to resolve the conflict between these two spheres, before they can effectively explore the other aspects of the human mind. Eshu is the messenger who guides us to enlightenment. He works as a mediator between the lower and higher worlds, teaching us lessons, so we can evolve to be whole spiritual beings.

Yamaya Cruz is the author of When The Shadows Began To Dance. She aspires to write books that are about spiritual healing, packed with emotional feeling, so people's shadows can dance.

In a princess's dream, her wedding is all white, but in the real world, that is rarely the case at all. Having a pure white wedding can be expensive and it can also be demanding on everyone involved. One other reason why brides in particular like to have another color in their wedding is because they don't want their bridesmaids upstaging them in any way. There is no secret why bridesmaids' dresses have such a bad reputation!

Wedding Color Ideas

However, just because you don't want your bridesmaids, or anyone else for that matter, looking better than you, it doesn't mean that you have to intentionally put them in an awful color. There are some very attractive color combinations you can use that will still keep all of the attention on you but will allow everyone involved to feel a little more comfortable.

You should also keep in mind that your wedding color ideas will go throughout your entire wedding, from the flowers you choose to your cake, the table settings, and more. So taking the time to choose from good wedding color ideas is important.

Consider the Season

If you are going to be married in the spring, which may vary from region to region, you will want to choose colors that are more traditional to that time of the year. These are usually softer pinks, greens, and yellows, and they can really brighten up a wedding. They also make choosing your flowers very easy.

If you will be married in the late fall or winter, then you will want to go with something altogether different. You should consider that darker colors would be appropriate for that time of the year and if you are getting married during the holidays, then holiday colors are fine to use.

Be Creative

If you enjoy swimming, boating, or the beach, then you might want to choose aquatic colors as a general theme. A nice sea foam green or light blue would make everyone feel at ease and you can continue that theme through your table settings. If you are a golfer, then a theme that more represents that passion can be fun and will also be easy to integrate with your flowers.

Don't Limit Yourself

You might think that you need to limit yourself to one color plus white, but that is not the case. Some of the most extravagant weddings use a variety of colors, but they have all been matched against the other. In other words, if you are going to pick a blue and a yellow, you need to specify the exact tone so that everything matches throughout your wedding.

There is also plenty of room for metallic colors. Some wedding color ideas such as white and silver or white and gold really work, especially during the winter months when a more formal wedding is in style. These can add a lot to the glamour of your wedding and also have the advantage of always being the right shade.

Arabica Coffee - Origins Of The Finest Coffee

Arabica coffee is widely-regarded as the best commercially-produced type of coffee in the world. It is famous for being the first type of coffee used by humankind. Most of the coffee you drink comes from Arabica plants, which are grown all over the world. This plant is most related with Africa and the Middle Eastbound, but is now planted in the coffee-growing regions of the world, as easily. Its beans make one of the most favorite beverages in the world, in all its different incarnations.

The Arabica coffee is grown on plantations from regions as far apart as Brazil and Ethiopia. This plant is a tree, which produces a berry that contains, at its midway, the coffee legume. In Java, plantations are able to harvest at any time of the year due to the conditions. Latin America has many different seasons, and many of the plants in this region are exclusively harvested once a year. There are separate varieties of coffee, such as Robusta.

Generally, the Arabica plant is thought to produce the greatest brew. It has some other remaining advantages, as well. Arabica coffee, depending upon the roast, can have low levels of caffeine. While many coffee drinkers indulge in the beverage specifically for the caffeine, there are a growing number of people trying to cut back on the amount that they consume. Arabica has lower levels of caffeine than the other types of commercially-produced coffee. Remember that lighter roasts generally have more caffeine in them as well, and that these beans are available at all levels of roast, making them good choices for those who need their caffeine intake cut down, but not out.

Arabica coffee is one of the most useful exchange crops in the world. It constitutes a better export of several Latin American and Asian countries. There are also a large number of nations which are dramatically progressive with their exports of either this coffee or Robusta, and the production of the farms that acquire this plant is favored among investors. This plant type is actually native to the people of Yemen, but since that period it has spread all over the world. This plant is a lover of mountain climates, and most plantations are set in areas where there is a rather rocky landscape.

Arabica beans are sometimes referred to as mount beans, because they mostly grow at higher elevations, commonly more than 1,000 feet above sea level. Development at a higher height results in a longer growing season and this allows the beans to achieve a deeper aroma and flavor.

Arabica beans were first cultivated in Ethiopia, but are now grown around the world. This bean flourishes in rich, volcanic mountain soil, making locations such as Columbia, Guatemala and El Salvador ideal spots for coffee production.

Because Arabica beans are considered superior to Robusta beans, the coffee that is served in coffee houses and cafes is generally one hundred percent Arabica. This particular bean produces a smoother, less acidic brew than the Robusta bean, which is why it is far more popular.

Coastal Roasters is an award winning micro-roaster of specialty fair trade and organic coffees from around the world. Their online store features a Coffee of The Month Club and other one of a kind roasts. Go now to for a unique coffee experience.

Do You Want To Have A Boy Baby?

There are many reasons why people refer to have a boy instead of a girl. Perhaps the father wants to have a boy because he wants to do all kind of "boy things" with him. Or, maybe the family already has girls and the parents want to have also a boy to complete their family. Whatever the reason is, there are some ways that can increase the odds of having a baby with a specific gender.

The gender of your child depends on the sperm of the father. If the sperm that fertilizes the egg has an X-chromosome, the baby will be a girl. On the other hand, if the sperm has a Y-chromosome, the baby will be a boy. Let's talk about an idea of getting pregnant with a boy.

If the desire of having a boy is deep, there indeed are some tricks that can help in increasing the odds. As far as you are healthy, and you don't have any major infertility issues, you can have some control over the gender of your future child. After all, getting pregnant naturally is still based on a successful intercourse and fertilization.

One important factor of getting pregnant with a boy is the time of your intercourse. There are certain days in a woman's menstrual cycle when she is at her most fertile. During these fertile days a woman is ovulating. When it comes to conceiving a boy, you should have sex as close to ovulation as possible, preferable during the ovulation.

It is a known fact that girl sperm are stronger than boy sperm. However, they are also slower. This information can be utilized in conceiving a baby boy, and that is why it is important to time the intercourse correctly.

Another important thing to remember is paying attention to your sexual position. You should favor the positions with as deep penetration as possible. Since boy sperm are weaker than girl sperm, in this way they don't have to travel so long distance in a hostile vaginal environment in order to fertilize the egg.

Many couples really want to get pregnant with a boy and have a beautiful baby boy. Even though most people believe there are no ways to conceive a baby with a specific gender, this is not necessarily true.

Todays knowledge about different characteristics of boy and girl sperm, along with improved medical technology, has made it possible to manipulate the gender of your baby. You just need to know the proper techniques.
