Strategy Games and the Effect They Have on Your Brain
Blog / 02/21/2014

Strategy Games and the Effect They Have on Your Brain   It has been long discussed about the harmful effects computer games have on individuals. It has been said that this type of games occupy a large period of the individual’s time without offering any positive reward, or in other words, without having any good effects on human’s life in its entirety. Also, it has been argued that computer games have as main result restricting people’s interaction with each other to the virtual world, thus leading to isolation. Yet, one side of computer games which has not been given proper attention is the educational one. Computer games, and especially strategy computer games such as SimCity or Age of Empires are designed in such a way as to challenge human brain and make it find new ways to solve difficult problems. Gamers are put in front of real life situations or possible situations and are given the freedom to choose what they want to do. Without making the right moves and right decisions, the player cannot move to the next level, cannot evaluate. These games are meant to make the player think, find new solutions, evaluate them and choose the most…

Repairing Your Laptop with Your Own Hands – A Basic Guide
Blog / 02/19/2014

Repairing Your Laptop with Your Own Hands – A Basic Guide By Thomas James, Author of Laptop Repair Made Easy   In this age of modular computers, laptop repair is easy-at least if you know exactly what you’re doing. Many of the components of a laptop, including even the motherboard and RAM, and even the hard drive, are completely modular and can simply be detached and lifted out of the laptop. This makes laptop repair a very simple job, just so long as you make sure that you understand the manual. Another thing that you should do when repairing your laptop is to carefully make notes about where each thing goes as you dismantle the device. It’s better to be safe than sorry, and it is impossible for anyone who is not a qualified technician to remember where all the intricate parts, screws and components that make up the average laptop go. If the connector within the laptop uses specific settings, you need to make careful notes of those settings as well. A set of precision tools, such as jewelers or watchmakers use, can also only be helpful. Remember that most parts that fail within a laptop require a simple…

Herb Planting – Starting an Herb Garden
Blog / 02/19/2014

Herb Planting – Starting an Herb Garden   Any person who says the words “herb planting” to me, and I instantly conjure up images of my mother. I would see her mulling over books to know what herbs to plant (we didn’t have the internet when I was young, and now she sees no reason to learn how to do so), checking out the containers or pots she’d be using, plotting her little piece of land that she fondly calls her haven. My mom who has a green thumb said that some herbs can be a bit tedious to grow, but most aren’t. Through time and experience, she suggested the following herbs as simple enough to grow that even a child can do so: Basil. It grows to about 18 inches, basil is very good for flavoring tomato juice and tomato-based dishes (which worked well with the family’s tummies as her harvest would always lead to flavorful cooking). Chervil. It grows to about 2 feet and should be spaced 8 inches apart from the next plant. This is usually mature and ready for harvesting in 6 weeks time. Do not transplant, as this will eventually cause the plant to wilt…

Strengthening Your Persuasion Strategy Through Repetition
Blog / 02/19/2014

Strengthening Your Persuasion Strategy Through Repetition By Michael Lee, Author of How To Be An Expert Persuader Once is enough for the wise man, they say. But in the world of sales and trade, there is no such thing as an arrangement being confirmed just once. In order for you to finally close that deal, you will have to exercise a number of sales techniques and persuasion strategies, and one of the most effective is repetition. The more you repeat the benefits of the product or service you are selling, the more it becomes natural to you and your prospect. It is this feeling of naturalness that you want to accomplish; because when an idea becomes second nature, it won’t appear as if you’re trying to sell; but instead, you’ll just be highlighting the obvious. After watching a certain advertisement on television, notice how we find ourselves humming the ad’s catchy jingle even while we’re doing something else. That’s repetition in action. In fact, it operates on several levels. Importance of repetition Repetition is necessary to retain a certain piece of information to memory. For example, if you need to learn a certain poem, you keep repeating it to yourself,…

Bird Flu: A Chicken Raiser’s Nightmare
Blog / 02/19/2014

Bird Flu: A Chicken Raiser’s Nightmare   Since its outbreak, every poultry owner had become aware of the consequences that can happen if this deadly disease is not prevented. Bird flu or what is also known avian (meaning bird) influenza (flu), is the number one killer of poultry chickens in Asia and some parts of the world. Bird flu started in China and became a widespread disease for their chickens thus wiping out over millions of poultry businesses and dropping the chicken industry to a devastating point. The thing about avian flu is that, not only can it affect birds but also humans which makes the illness more dangerous to various lives. It can be passed from chicken to chicken, chicken to person, person to person, person to chicken, and so on. That is why authorities in the health sectors are taking this serious matter in their hands and are making strict surveillance. Avian influenza is not just a disease underlying a typical cold. It is more than that. In fact, it can kill an entire poultry habitation within a week. If passed onto a person, it can be more lethal as a person can interact with hundreds of people…

Improve your Vision – Natural Gateways It has been said the eyes are the windows to the soul, but they also our windows to look out and observe the world. Eyes are important for seeing things, reading, working, and even communicating. The eyes are sensitive though, they work hard and they need time to rest and recover from the constant strain put on them. Did you know that we can cure poor eyesight just by changing a few bad habits? We are extremely hard on our eyes and taking to the time to practice relaxation exercising can help us see more clearly. Even if you have worn glasses for years or are prone to eye problems and eye disease, learning to take the strain and stress away from the eyes can cure all that. Strain and stress are the main factors affecting poor eyesight. Everyone is born with relatively good eyesight. Throughout our school age years we are taught bad habits that cause our eyes to strain too much.

Toenail Fungus Cure
Blog / 02/17/2014

Toenail Fungus Cure   If you suffer from toenail fungus I’d be willing to bet you want it gone. Unfortunately, it’s the most difficult fungal infection to treat. Everyone is searching for the toenail fungus cure. So what is it? Well, it’s not that easy. Toenail fungus affects the nail bed, making it very difficult to treat with topical products. Oral medications can have bad side effects and take over a year to clear the infection. So what is the real cure for nail fungus? Most doctors at the current time will prescribe an oral antifungal medication like Lamasil. This works in most people, but takes a very long time and can have some pretty bad side effects. Most importantly, its hard on the liver. If you are a drinker, or if you are pregnant or nursing, you should not take Lamasil. Topical antifungals are very hit or miss. Athletes foot medications like Tinactin typically do not work for nail fungus. Many people recommend more natural products like tea tree oil, which has shown to have antifungal properties. Since tea tree oil has minimal research behind it, and is not regulated by the FDAA, it’s tough to tell if you’re…

How to Set Up a Simple Home-Based Recording Studio By Tennyson Williams, Author of The Essential Guide To Guitar Virtuosity   In this day and age, setting up your very own home based digital recording studio is extremely affordable, as well as easy to do. Not only that, but its a lot of fun! In this article I’m going to be talking about how to get started with a home recording studio that will cost around a $1000 – that’s right, one thousand dollars. Don’t worry – our little studio is going to rock! After that I will also be discussing how to expand this same studio into a more diversified and fully functional studio, but first – let’s start with the basics. 1. Computer The computer that you choose to operate with is very important. Recording software can take its toll on just any ordinary computer, so there are some performances issues that we need to keep in mind. Its true that your computer will require a good amount of RAM, but this isn’t the only big thing. The CPU is also very important. In my opinion, I believe that anything above 3GBs of RAM is overkill. I also…
