***Key Concepts of Gastric Ulcer***

Medically speaking, gastric ulcer or peptic gastric ulcer is a damage on the normal tissues that line the stomach. It is different from the duodenal ulcer, which pertains to damage on the normal tissue lining of the initial part of the bowel or the duodenum. Though gastric ulcer is a common disease among Americans, diagnosis is still quite hard to perform since the clinical presentations of disease vary. Manifestations may range from asymptomatic or showing of no symptoms to nausea, acute-life foreboding internal hemorrhage, epigastric pain, and iron-deficiency anemia.Gastric ulcer is produced from torn or sored protective layers of the stomach lining. These layers produce the mucus that protects the stomach from becoming injured by harsh digestive gases and stomach acids.Causes
Gastric ulcer is basically due to the imbalanced secretion of stomach enzymes and acids as well as the components released in the mucosal lining of the stomach. This then will get inflamed that may be aggravated by aspirin and NSAIDs or Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs. NSAIDs are commonly taken to combat the symptoms of other ailments such as back pain and kidney pain.Gastric ulcer is also a result of the following conditions:
? The presence of Helicobacter pylori or H. pylori, the bacteria responsible for causing gastric ulcer.
? Lessen capacity of the stomach lining to resist the stomach acids.
? Increase in production of the stomach acids.Risk factors
Risk factors are some of the causes that may intensify the susceptibility of a person against a disease. In this case, gastric ulcer.
? Regular use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications like ibuprofen and drugs such as aspirin and naproxen
? Chronic gastritis
? Smoking
? Mechanical ventilation
? Increased age
? Helicobacter pylori infectionInterestingly enough, stress and a number of emotional problems are not labeled as risk factors to gastric ulcer. Yet there are studies that may show otherwise. They point out that stress may be a contributing factor to the aggravation of the ailment.The chance of developing gastric ulcer is further increased by regular smoking and over-use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.Symptoms
? Abdominal indigestion
? Extreme abdominal pain that may subject the patient to sleeplessness at night.
? Blood in stools or black stools
? Fatigue
? Nausea
? Unplanned weight loss
? Vomiting, especially vomiting blood
? HeartburnIt must be noted though that there may be no manifestations of symptoms in some gastric ulcer cases.Differentiation of gastric ulcer and duodenal ulcer
? Classic gastric ulcer pain is often characterized by pain attacking after every meal. The use of antacids may not be as effective and may only provide temporary and very minimal relief.? The gastric ulcer pain is typically sited at the epigastrium yet it may also be founded in the upper right quadrant of the stomach area and elsewhere.? Unlike with gastric ulcer, duodenal ulcer pain usually sets hours after meals and during night. This may be relieved using antacids and specific foods.? Pain that radiates to the back may suggest of complications involving the pancreas.? There are cases of bleeding gastric ulcers and these may show significant signs of melena, hematemesis, and attacks of presyncope.Treatments of gastric ulcer are very effective yet recurrence is possible and complications are most likely to develop. Three percent of all gastric ulcer cases advance to becoming as stomach cancer so it is extremely important to inform your health care provider of all conditions that you fell during attacks.freenetpublishing.com is a free information site that offers articles and resources.

***Simple Techniques to Get around Agonizing Rheumatism***

Simply put, rheumatism is swelling. It is characterized by swelling and pain found on the muscles, joints, ligaments and tendons. The term is used for a variety of related ailments in the past. Yet recently, rheumatism was subdivided into several conditions, which gave rise to more specific ailments.The most common symptoms of the onset of rheumatism are sudden fever, intense soreness, pain and stiffness of the muscles and the affected body components.For acute muscular rheumatism, the affected area experiences elevated sensitivity that even the lightest of the bed covers may cause excruciating pain. Rheumatism usually starts acutely which means that the onset is rapid and may go quickly as well. However, with a wrong mode of treatment, rheumatism and its effects may aggravate and will most likely develop into chronic rheumatism.Rheumatic pain is often tormenting but may also advance to a delibitating state. So it is important to give initial relief before any symptoms develop. Provided below are some of the prevalently employed homeophatic techniques to heal rheumatism and to delay its development.Treatment by means of Potato Juice
What more could be effective than using potato for preventing the onset and aggravation of rheumatism? For the juice, one or two teaspoons taken before every meal may be sufficient. This is helpful in relieving pain and in minimizing the toxic wastes in the body. The potato skin on the other hand, contains salt minerals that are typically used for rheumatism treatment. The minerals found in the potato peel may be extracted by means of boiling. This decoction can also be taken in the same manner.Treatment by means of Bitter Gourd
It is by far, easier to extract the juice form the bitter gourd than with potato. teksty cup of this juice combined with a teaspoon of honey must be taken daily to treat rheumatism. To provide more effective relief, this treatment must be used over a period of three months.Treatment By means of Celery
It is more convenient to extract the juice of the vegetable itself for treating rheumatism but the more effective way of doing it is by means of extracting the seeds. This has a tonic effect on the stomach and the kidneys. To achieve the desired relief from rheumatism, it is best to drink a hot liquid containing 5 to 10 drops of the seed extract. But you may also use powdered celery seeds as an alternative.Treatment by means of Lemon Juice
For more efficient result, the sufferer will have to drink the juice of three lemons everyday.Treatment by means of Walnuts
Walnuts must be thoroughly eaten to arrive to its beneficial effects. Half a dozen each day may be sufficient in treating rheumatismTreatment by means of Rhubarb
Remedy using this herb seldom fails and may prove very beneficial for the sufferer. The stalk of rhubarb must be pounded along with an equal amount of sugar. One teaspoon of this solution must be taken daily.These well recognized home remedies for rheumatism have been passed down from ages to ages. Though many will dispute their effectivity over the ailment, the proponents of these remedies will say otherwise. Whatever the conflict between modern medicine and homeophatic treatment there may be, the fact still remains to be that people recognized the capacity of these methods to heal. And so they are still in existence up to this date.freenetpublishing.com is a free information site that offers articles and resources.

***Healthcare & Blogs: Should We Believe The Hype?*** P unimarter UniMarter
***Healthcare & Blogs: Should We Believe The Hype?***

Physicians, healthcare executives, pharmaceutical companies and others have been slow to jump on the blogging bandwagon. The primary reason is because they have a negative opinion of blogs. Some believe that blogs are filled with inaccurate information and cannot drive sales of healthcare products and services.In some respects, this negative perception of blogs is justified. This is because
blogs are far from a perfect communications medium. Some of the reasons for this
include:- It Is Difficult To Vet Blog Content: Currently, there is no standard set of
criteria people can use to determine whether a blog is credible- There Are No Metrics: There is a lot of anecdotal evidence indicating
that blogs may impact a company?s bottom line, but no hard statistics showing how
blogs have driven sales or changed customer perceptions- Blogging Is Hard Work: Blogs take a lot of time and effort to develop
and grow. Unless a blog is integrated into an organization?s long term
communications strategy, it may not be successfulWhy Blogs Deserve teksty Serious LookDespite the many drawbacks associated with blogs, executives, physicians and other
players in the healthcare industry should take them seriously. Blogs are poised to
significantly impact many aspects of healthcare, including perceptions of medical
products and the relationship between providers and patients. Following is a brief
overview of some of the key ways blogs may influence the healthcare industry.Healthcare Blogs and the Provider-Patient RelationshipIn July 2005, Harris Interactive released a poll indicating that 117 million Americans
have turned to the Internet for healthcare information. Think about this for a
moment. This survey suggests that online health information may be having a
profound influence on the healthcare provider-patient relationship. This means that
people may already be using information posted by providers, experts, patients and
others on blogs in conversations with their physicians.Healthcare Blogs and Market ResearchHealthcare blogs are already affecting healthcare-related communications activities,
including market research. Nielsen BuzzMetrics, an Internet monitoring firm, reports
that 14 of the world's top 15 pharmaceutical companies are already using its
services to track "buzz" about their products on blogs and other "consumer-
generated content" (i.e., bulletin boards, podcasts, etc.). As the healthcare
"blogosphere" expands, the influence of blogs may only increase.Healthcare Blogs and Disease ManagementHealthcare blogs are also having an impact on medical treatment. For example, a
number of physicians have developed blogs that provide information to healthcare
providers on how to manage common and rare medical conditions. These blogs are
highly ranked on major search engines and are widely read.Blogs and Healthcare: More Than Hype So, should healthcare executives, pharmaceutical companies and others believe the
hype about blogs? Maybe so, maybe not. However, at the very least, they should
learn as much as they can about what blogs mean for healthcare and think about
whether launching one is worth the effort. When it comes to blogs, knowledge is
power.Fard Johnmar is founder of Envision Solutions, teksty.teksty.C., a full-service healthcare
marketing communications consulting firm. Envision Solutions provides
innovative products and services to not-for-profit and for-profit
organizations. For more information and insights on blogs and healthcare,

***Blogging, Nutrition and the Truth***

When my friend, Jim Larsen, sends me articles like the review of a Lancet paper from April 2005 where the authors tell their audience that they should abandon their calcium and other nutritional supplements in favor of pharmaceuticals I get my hackles up (my wife thanks you Jim. The paper he sent me is so poorly done that my 9 year old would be scolded for writing it, I have to wonder whether some people’s drive for money has so clouded their thinking that any semblance of morality was dropped off somewhere far away from their homes. The participants in the study from the Lancet had a incredibly high drop out rate (over 1 / 3rd) which in and of it self should have thrown it out but it also did not look at levels of Vitamin D (critical in calcium metabolism), did not look at hydrochloric acid levels which are necessary for proper absorption of calcium and they use too low of a dose! Many of the studies putting down calcium also used the wrong form, calcium carbonate which is a cheap but very poorly absorbed form.When you look at the advertising in journals like the New England Journal of Medicine (I commonly refer to it as the NEJ of Aggravation) and The Lancet, you can see why they consistently whore themselves to Big Pharma. You may think my words are harsh but the distortion and lying is of such a catastrophic nature, that I should be accused of being too mild in my characterizations of these people.Now to turn my focus to the other side of nutrition, the hucksters and sales sharks who tout things like horny goat weed as the solution to all male sexual dysfunction, or some self-proclaimed health truth tellers from some dark corner of the Amazon who claim they are the only bastion of truth yet when you disagree with them (with good cause), they call you Nazi’s (yes I have been accused by one such lunatic as having opinions reminiscent of the perpetrators of the Holocaust) and big Pharma shills. These are the ones that allopathic medical practitioners point to as the model of alternative minded people. They do such a disservice to nutritional health that I feel some of them may really be the big Pharma shills.While not all blogging is filled with truth sayers, by sharing our ideas and thoughts, we allow people to hear all sides of a story, not just the side that advertisers want you to hear. We blog not just to see ourselves on the net but to allow you to see what the truth might be. As for me, I will continue to blog as long as I see deceit, disinformation, falsehoods and shills.Mark Schauss is the President of Carbon Based Corporation a company dedicated to diseminating health information, especially when it comes to laboratory testing. He has lectured the world over on subjects as far ranging as environmental health, nutrition, lab testing and childhood neurological conditions, especially epilepsy a condition his oldest girl is afflicted with.Mark has also been involved in the alternative health community for over 20 years. His opinions have often times struck a controversial note not because of outrageous claims but because of his strident fervor of finding the truth. Hucksters, marketers and the dishonest are his life goal targets.Highly respected in the community, his talks spark numerous "ah ha" moments as well as a deeper understanding of the important health questions of the day.

***Rhinoplasty and the Risks it Entails***

Along with face-lift, breast enlargement and a number of other plastic surgery procedures, rhinoplasty is considered as one of the most commonly performed plastic surgery in America. This procedure works by reshaping the contour of the nose for the following reasons: for enhancing the size, change of tip or bridge, change of angle in relation with your upper lip and the nose and to narrow the size of the nostrils. It may also be that it corrects some breathing problems and other birth-related conditions.Rhinoplasty won’t help increase the ideality of your face nor will it change other people’s perception on you. Like with most plastic surgery procedures, the patient often expects that after the surgery, their psychological views about themselves will change along with the change in their physical appearances. Rhinoplasty is not a means to make other people look at you in a way different from how they currently see you or to match your ideal look.People who are considered as best candidates for rhinoplasty are those who are after the improvements it may result to and not for perfection. You have to be physically, emotionally and psychologically healthy before you may be considered as candidate or else all your expectations will become failures. It is mostly performed for aesthetic purposes. The person has the only command over the attitude he or she may take after the procedure.Age can also be part of the considerations before you may be passed as a candidate for the operation. Majority surgeons do not allow surgery for teenagers. Not until they are past the stage of development, 15 for girls and a bit later for boys. It must be noted too that the teenager’s intention is healthy.As it may be observed, all surgeries entail risks and possible failures. However, these chances can be decreased if a certified and experienced surgeon will perform the surgery. Nonetheless, there would still be some complications that can never be prevented such as reaction to anesthesia (both local and general), nose bleeding and infections. It is best to follow your surgeon’s guidelines to minimize such negative effects.There can be permanent and temporary side effects after rhinoplasty. Usually after the surgery, small spots of red blood cells may be seen on your nose. These typically become permanent, it is best to ask your physician concerning it. Scarring on the other hand is very minimal. Rhinoplasty is normally performed inside the nose so the scars wont be visible. Nevertheless, when the surgery is open, especially with the case of shortening the expanse of your nostrils, the scars may still not be visible.There is also a possibility of repeated surgery. But this is a minor issue since only around 10% of all patients will have to endure secondary surgery for correcting deformities. This can never be avoidable and may also happen among the most skilled surgeons.Communication, specifically a good one, must be made between you and your surgeon. You have to discuss your goals and see if they will work for you. On his part, in return, he has to answer all your queries and assure to it that you know all the risks that are covered by the procedure. He must also stress out the factors that will seriously affect your rhinoplasty procedure. These factors, when not properly addressed may have adverse effects on the outcome of your surgery. It is best if these will be disclosed to you.freenetpublishing.com is a free information site that offers articles and resources.

***Mexican Living: Haircuts, Doctors, and Things***

There is a universal, absolute, immutable, infrangible, and inviolable fact of the universe (like gravity and bad breath) that one rarely considers: No matter what you tell your haircut person (notice how nonsexist that was) about how you want your hair cut it will NEVER come out the way you want it, EVER!You will get the haircut the person who is cutting your hair wants to give you.This has always been true since Adam first asked Eve to cut his hair and it came out looking like the raccoon he just named. This is true. It's in the Bible.This has always been my experience whenever I went to the barber in the United States. He or she (there I am again acknowledging both sexes) would ask me how I wanted to have my haircut. I would mumble something incomprehensible, to which they would always say,"Alrighty, let's see what we can do."In addition, it would come out looking like the haircut person wanted it to. I would tell them thank you, pay them a fortune, and walk out with my head hung low.Now, imagine, if you will, having to try this in Mexico in Spanish! It is the same here. They ask you how you want your hair cut and you have to come up with an explanation.I prepared diligently for the day I knew would eventually come. I had this Spanish book with a dialogue in it called, "Let's get our hair cut!"I memorized the pertinent vocabulary. I even practiced hand gestures in the mirror to pantomime how short I wanted my hair and where to cut and how much. I had this down to a science and was confident that I was finally, for the first time in my life, going to get the haircut I wanted. You see I thought, stupidly, that somehow it would be different here.So, my wife and I went into the hairstylist place. She went, not that she needed a haircut, but to hold my hand.I told the haircut person, with unfailing linguistic accuracy, how I wanted my hair cut. He mumbled something back to my clear and succinct Spanish that I did not understand, and then got to work.When it was done, I put on my glasses. When I looked into the mirror, I looked like a taller and slightly skinner version of Drew Carey.I pulled my visor over my head, paid the guy, and slithered off.I let it grow out and tried this again only with a different "establishment." This time it was a woman who cut my hair. I went through the whole routine again. Only this time, I contacted a fellow expat, who is a fluent Spanish speaker, and got haircut-explaining lessons from him.I was even better prepared.I went through the ordeal but came out looking like a fatter version of Justin Timberlake.This is when the universal law of haircutting was first firmly established in my mind. No matter where you go on this planet, you will always get the haircut the haircutter THINKS you want and there is nothing you can do about it—ever!I knew I had to do something. I couldn't afford to go to the United States just to get a haircut.What I now do is take my passport with me to get a haircut. For my passport picture, I had my head shaved to a velvety shrub. I could use my head as a brillo-pad.This has been working every time. This leaves no room for creative license for the haircutting person and it comes out exactly as I want it each time. It is foolproof!I am happy. My hair is happy. It is one less worry. Except try going to the doctor and explain how you have the painful and embarrassing itch of hemorrhoids.Doug Bower is a freelance writer and book author.

***Is This Depression? Screening Tool and Simple Ways to Feel Be unimarter UniMarter
***Is This Depression? Screening Tool and Simple Ways to Feel Better***

“All I want to do is sleep.”
“I am crying and feel sad – a lot.”
“I usually enjoy playing games with the kids after work, but now I just want to be left alone.”We all have bad days and the ups and downs of daily living can really wear us out. Sometimes, we notice that we are having more down times than up, and the feelings of sadness or hopelessness can begin to dominate our outlook.If you used to feel good, happy, and productive and now you are sad and have trouble getting the smallest tasks finished, it is a good idea to take the time to explore the changes.Check out this list of common symptoms:
No energy
Feeling sad or hopeless most of the time
Feeling empty
Crying a lot, or, feeling like you want to cry but cannot
Not experiencing joy in life
Trouble concentrating
Trouble making decisions
Decreased interest in doing things you usually enjoy
Sleeping too much or not sleeping enough
Eating too much or not eating enough
Thoughts of death or suicide
Note: if you are in immediate crisis, or seriously considering suicide, you should go to the nearest emergency room or phone 911 for help.If you have several of these symptoms and feel down for more than two weeks, you might be experiencing depression.Depression can range from normal, mild “ups and downs” to severe depression that lasts a long time. Women are more than twice as likely to experience depression as men. Maybe it is hormones or genetics, but the stress of daily living, raising a family, responsibilities at work, finances, and the expectation that we should be “super women” might also contribute to this statistic. Depression doesn’t just affect us. When we feel lethargic and sad, our partners and children notice. This change in mood can affect our job performance as well. If you think you might have depression, consult with your doctor to see if medication is the right choice for treating your symptoms.I often tell my clients that depression is a sneaky disorder. Depression says, “Stay in bed and you’ll feel better,” when in fact, getting up and moving can actually help your brain produce the chemicals it needs to help you feel better. Here are some ways to help you regain a sense of balance.Get back into a routine – get out of bed in the morning, get a shower, and get dressed. Go to bed at a reasonable time so your internal clock can readjust. This sounds so simple, but depression can make it very difficult. Work every day toward returning to your own personal routine.Eat regularly and healthfully - Often, when we are depressed, we don’t want to eat, or we only choose “comfort foods” that feel good initially, but don’t help us nutritionally. Make a choice to eat proteins, vegetables, carbohydrates, and fruits, every day. If you don’t have an appetite, decide to eat something at mealtimes, even if it is only a small amount, to help your system get back on track.Drink plenty of water - Most of us don’t drink enough water and it helps your body function at its best. Drinks with caffeine or sweeteners are not the same as pure water.Avoid alcohol which can make you feel more depressed.Exercise – Gee, the last thing we want to think about when we are depressed is exercise. However, exercise helps our brains produce chemicals that make us feel good and it gets more oxygen into our system. Check with your doctor if necessary, and start out with small goals and gradually increase your time and exertion as you get stronger.Talk about your feelings with a therapist - It is good to have someone to talk with during rough times. Additionally, you can work together to understand events or triggers that might have contributed to the depression.Drink plenty of water – No, this isn’t a typo – drinking water can help clear toxins from your body. I believe there is a strong connection between our emotions and how our bodies feel and function. Giving your body what it needs can help restore balance to your system.Be gentle with yourself - Having depressive symptoms can feel scary and frustrating. You are giving yourself, your partner, and your family a gift by working to take good care of yourself.© 2006 Cynthia McKenna LPC, NCC - All Rights Reserved Worldwide.Cynthia McKenna LPC, NCC is a therapist and life-coach who helps people transform their lives.

***On Meditation and the Proclivity for Entertainment***

Usually we spend our free time doing various things; reading, watching movies, using the computer, playing the guitar, meditating, cooking... The empty spaces in a day are soon filled with small activities, amusements, things that pass the time more often than enrich it. The mind is engaged, all the time. Always there is a focal point for the mind, something for attention to flicker towards. Always there are things to distract us, to keep us moving.Meditation is prescribed as a countermeasure to this constant activity. There, the mind is allowed to relax. Thoughts can make their own way out, and, when one spends a lot of time meditating, over a long period, there can be strong positive effects. But even when meditating, sitting on a cushion for the sole purpose of calming the mind, there can be a purpose. The mind is engaged there, too. There is a direction to this meditation, just as there is to every other activity.But think of this: Who first discovered meditation? Who was the first person to meditate? And this person, was she doing it for the purpose of attaining enlightenment? Of course not. There was no one to tell her about enlightenment, no one to tell her about God or spirituality. Maybe she did not have a reason to meditate. Maybe she just did it, spontaneously and innocently. And think of this: Did it have the same effect on her that it has on one of us today?When we sit down to meditate, we do not do it spontaneously. We do it because we have been told it is good for us, because we have been told it will lead us to enlightenment.Maybe it will. But of what importance is the spontaneity of meditation? Of what importance is our motivation to meditate?

***Mexican Living: Too Dang Fat!*** I thought I could avoid unimarter UniMarter
***Mexican Living: Too Dang Fat!***

I thought I could avoid this when we moved to Mexico. I thought being here would effect a permanent change. I didn't think I would have to struggle with this anymore. I was wrong!The doctor just told me that I am too fat.What happened? I was doing so well. I even wrote about my progress in the book my wife and I wrote.When we first moved to Guanajuato, I dropped about 40 pounds. This was exciting beyond my wildest expectations. We moved here without a car and vowed never to get another one. And we haven't. We ended up having to walk everywhere and everyday.I was in Spanish classes, so I had to walk five days a week to and from classes. In addition, wherever my wife needed to go, I usually would escort her. We both became walking freaks.I think another reason we walked so much is that we had a tiny apartment that wasn't all that comfortable. So, to keep from being bored and going stir-crazy we got out—a lot. There was also the issue of noise in that neighborhood. The people across from us had two yip-yip, demonically possessed poodles that barked day and night without end. This drove us from the apartment often.We eventually found a lovely little house in a quiet neighborhood and snatched it. The only thing is that it is far away from anywhere. There is a downside and an upside to this.Upside: To get to town, on goods days, we walk about thirty minutes to get to the park. We rest there, have a coke, and then proceed to the stores for shopping. Lots and lots of walking is required.Downside: It is so far from anywhere that we are often tempted to take the bus or just not get out at all. Whereas we were walking 6-7 days a week at the other place, now we barely get our fat butts out of the house 2 or 3 times a week.Result: Doug gained most of his old weight back and is now "fat, fat the water rat." In addition, my blood sugar is doing things it should not be doing.Tsk! Tsk!I admit it. I confess that I have fallen back into my old slovenly Americanized lifestyle of eating too much of the wrong kinds of foods and then not exercising enough.When I told a gringo friend that my doctor told me I was too fat, he told me to get another doctor. Do you think that would work? Sigh!So, here is the plan: I have to lose at least 2 kilos, according to my doctor, per month. He said to avoid all the foods and treats I adore and to walk my butt off. (I am convinced that's where most of the weight is located—in my butt.)He told me to show back up in a month for a weigh-in. That was three weeks ago and I haven't lost one ounce. What am I going to do?My options:· Fast for a week.· Find another doctor.· Fast and jog for a week.· Hide out from the doctor and then show up later claiming I lost track of time.· Throw myself at the doctor's feet and cry for mercy.· Tell him Weight Watchers only accept women in Mexico (Oh, wait! There is no Weight Watchers here.).· Go for the office visit and introduce myself as Seńor Fat, fat the water rat."· Send someone disguised as me who is really skinny.Seriously, obesity is a serious problem and though I am struggling with this, I am determined to overcome it.Write me at mexico03expat-guanajuato@yahoo.com and tell me about your struggles with weight. Give me suggestions and maybe I will use them in this column.Doug Bower is a freelance writer and book author.

But I got in to a situation when I need big money and urgently.I have made quite a research on the Internet on making money and from all the methods out there the one described by Rob Benwell in ?Blogging to the Bank? looked the most reliable to me. I have a critical set of mind, and I will never put a cent into something that does not give me the promised returns. Somehow I believed in Rob?s e-book, maybe because of the way he wrote his ad letter or maybe because he promises a realistic income of up to $500 a day. Many others promise insane $60,000-80,000 a month for doing nothing. I consider them spam immediately.Once I?ve decided to buy ?Blogging to the Bank? I rushed doing so as I did not want to pay for it $97 instead of $47 what it costs right now. Soon he is planning to increase the price as he gets too many customers to manage the orders.However, already in my ?Thank you? letter I got an unpleasant surprise: another ad to buy a new e-book ?Blog Announcer Pro? helping generate traffic to your blog. I think it is not a smart move as customers who have already trusted him get an impression that he is just trying to squeeze money out of us. But as soon as I started reading his ?Blogging to the Bank? e-book I realized that it is a great stuff. It is full of useful information, without which I would not be able to do a thing, and he does reveal some secrets.I have just started to put everything he wrote into practice and eager to find out if it really works. Somehow I feel that it does.Sure, I am going to keep you posted on my results just keep returning to my blog.P.S. Rob also provides in ?Blogging to the Bank? a couple of software to buy. Personally, I will wait till I get some earnings using free methods he describes.P.P.S. You can learn about ?Blogging to the Bank? and get other useful links by visiting my blog at http: / / blogging-to.blogspot.com.

***Sandals and Traditional Japanese Sandals***

Before the shoes?were sandals. But in some regions, the shoes were first devised rather than the more comfortable and light sandals. Throughout the world, there are artifacts and strong evidences that sandals had been existing since human first inhabited earth. These evidences were not only found in the relics but may also be sighted in the similarities of terminology to connote something that is worn for feet covering. Take for example the Latin word sandalium, or the French sandale and even the Arabic andal. All these seem to be linked by a common idea of a sandal.The variety of sandal types today attests to man?s mastery over sandal making and the use he has found in the item. In the following sections of this article, we will discuss some of the most popular sandal types in the world. Most of the types mentioned here will only be discussed in brief since we will try to focus on the types of sandals traditional to Japanese culture alone.espadrille - is a type of sandal characterized by the rope sole or rubber sole with a cloth covering for its upper section.flip-flop - is Japanese in origin and is characterized by being backless. This sandal is held on the foot by means of a thong between the second toe and the big toe.Gladiator- named after the sandals worn by gladiators of the Roman arenas, straps that are fastened to the flat sole to hold the foot in place characterizes this sandal.huarache or huaraches - is a Mexican sandal with flat heels and woven leather thongs for straps.scuffer - is usually worn as playshoes among children and as sportshoe among adults. Scuffers are frequently made out of lightweight materials and are characterized for their sturdy sole.shoe - is a footwear that is patterned to fit the foot. Usually, the upper is made of leather, plastic or rubber and the sole is made out of much heavier and sturdier material.talaria - is frequently mentioned in most Roman myths. This is a winged sandal worn by Hermes, a Roman god.Zori or pusher - originally a Japanese, this is a sandal made of rubber sole and two straps that are held on either side which meets at the upper part between the big toe and the second finger.Among these general types of sandals, the most popular types are the zori, the huarache and the gladiator.Japanese sandalsThe three of the basic Japanese sandals are the geta, tatami and the zori. Geta sandals are more commonly known among Americans due to the popularity of Geisha women images. There are varieties of geta sandals but two of the best-known are the vinyl and the wooden. The latter is worn during ordinary days while the vinyl geta is worn on occasion. Geta is named as such because of the sound (click clack) they produce when being walked.The tatami sandals on the other hand are included in the casual category. These are typically worn for normal days and daily wear. The term tatami was derived from the Japanese word for straw. The tatami sandals are crafted from tatami, the same material used in making the mat flooring for traditional Japanese houses. Traditionally, the thong either comes in black or red velvet.For formal occasions, zori sandals are worn. Along with these sandals come tabi socks that are split between the large toe and the second toe.freenetpublishing.com is a free information site that offers articles and resources.

***Mall Information Now On Customers' Phones*** An obvious w unimarter UniMarter
***Mall Information Now On Customers' Phones***

An obvious way to help customers decide where to shop is to let them know what is available, not just after they have arrived at the shopping centre but before they have even decided where to shop. Customers can now access this information on the screen of their mobile phones - and just about every shopper has a mobile phone.A new mobile phone application puts shop specials, a centre directory, details of what?s happening and coming up in the centre, marketing updates plus other information, even the ability to provide email feedback straight from the customers phone to Centre Management onto just about any mobile phone screen. Customers don?t even have to be in the centre at the time.Information is easily controlled and updated by Centre Management. Shoppers can be at home or on the bus or sipping coffee somewhere and can check out the shops specials or see what?s coming up in their favourite centre. Customers only receive what they request and it is easy to set up and use.It operates on the normal mobile phone network and does not use SMS or Bluetooth. It is the perfect complement to a centres website and is the ideal link to customers for those centres who don?t have a website. It all happens without customers being bombarded with ads and without the centre having to install wireless systems. There is no cost to the user (unless centres choose to do so) apart from any carrier charges.There are more than 2 billion mobile phones in the world today and, when you think about it, every one of those was bought by and is being used by a shopper!With customers? service expectations increasing, one of the most common customer complaints is the difficulty in finding particular shops and services within centres. It helps to overcome this hassle by providing location details of each shop and service such as ATMs and toilets.Once installed, customers can access it easily on their phone.It really seems to be the ultimate in customer services. No doubt, a customer's decision where to shop just got a whole lot easier!Stuart HelyFor more information, contact stuarth@bluepulse.com.au or see the blog at http: / / mallsonmobiles.blogspot.com.

***Installing Nucleus Onto Your H4P Server*** In this articl unimarter UniMarter
***Installing Nucleus Onto Your H4P Server***

In this article I will explain how to download and install the Blog software Nucleus on your server. Nucleus is customisable in every way and you can have different authors using the same blog. I will be installing onto the Host4Profit.com server as this article is aimed at those who use H4P.Note: If you use a different host company most, if not all the instructions will hold true. Just the terminology will be a bit different.The only requirements are that you have a free MySQL database on your server and that your server runs PHP4+. If you are installing onto Host4Profit servers then you meet the requirements.First of all download the software from http: / / nucleuscms.org / download.php onto your desktop and then unzip it making sure you keep the directory structure.Next you will need to upload everything onto your server into a directory of your choice. I recommend using the name nucleus as then you will know what the directory is. To upload the files to your server you will need to use a FTP program, your File Manager on your server, or if you use Windows XP its? built in FTP program.Once all the files are uploaded onto your server you will need to change the permission of the file config.php to 666. To do this, find the file config.php and to the right of the name you will see 3 numbers. Click on that and in the new window, type 666 and enter.Before we go on you will need to set up a Database. If using Host4Profit it is an easy process. You will have to log into your WEBePanel and then click on the MySQL database icon to get started. Follow the instructions on that page and write down the database name (usually part or all of your domain name) and the password.Now open a new browser window and type in the address to the install.php in your Nucleus directory like this ? http: / / www.yourdomain.com / nucleus / install.phpYou are presented with some information and a set of instructions, one of which is to change the permissions of the config.php to 666. When the installation is complete you will need to change the permissions back to 444.Next you need to enter some information to set up the MySQL database. Nucleus can normally set this up for you automatically but as we are using Host4Profit, Nucleus has a problem which is why we created the database already. All we have to do is fill in the blanks as so-In the Hostname box you put - localhostUser Name ? the name you wrote down earlier. The default is yourdomain_com with 2 or 3 added depending on how many databases you have used.Password ? The password that you wrote down.After that when you scroll down the installation page there are a lot of directories and addresses that are already set up for you. The ones you should take note of are the ones that start with http: / / as these are the urls that you will use to access the admin section and to read your blog.Following on from there, you are presented with the Administrator User data. You need to fill this in and remember the user name and password that you use.Note: The username and password are different to the ones you used to set up the database. These are your admin details.After that you just need to name your blog and give it a short name. Then click the Install button.Once you have installed the Nucleus program, you need to do two things.1. Go into your File Manager and change the permissions to config.php to 4442. Delete the file install.phpThere is a wealth of information about using Nucleus both in the nucleus directory and at the http: / / nucleuscms.org / web site. You will also find a support forum, downloadable skins and plugins lot of helpful information.Martin Wood is one of a growing number
of people who have found working at home
on the Internet a rewarding experience.

***RSS: Get Notified When Your Favorite Websites Are Updated***

RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is a way for a site to publish it's updates. RSS readers can read these notifications and display a listing of the updates to you, the user.It's sort of like having a special 'inbox' for emails announcing updates to your selected websites.Many applications and websites support RSS feeds. You can add RSS feeds to your My Yahoo! page, Firefox has several RSS extensions such as Sage, there are sites that deal w / RSS feeds such as Feedster and FastBuzz. Thunderbird even allows you to set up RSS feeds similar to your inbox.There are also stand alone applications for RSS feeds like Pluck, RSSReader and SharpReader.Different readers allow you to subscribe to a feed differently. Using Firefox w / Sage, for example, you can drag-and-drop the RSS icon into your RSS feed folder and it's done.What's the benefit?You can use RSS feeds to see if there's anything new at a given site before visiting the site. This wouldn't be a big help if you only had one RSS feed. However, if you have several sites you check routinely, this can cut the time down tremendously.It gives you more of an 'at-a-glance' view of all your monitored sites. Imagine if when you went to click on your bookmark for a site that it also said right then if the site had changed and how.Also, depending on the RSS reader you use, it can tell you when you have a new update on the site.Sites with RSS FeedsThere are many sites w / RSS feeds. To know if a site has an RSS feed, look for an "RSS" link on the site or a button / icon w / RSS, ATOM or XML on it.One cool use is to set the RSS feed for a news search on a site. At Yahoo! News you can search on a topic in the news and then subscribe to that feed using the XML icon.A lot of news / info / blog sites have RSS feeds that can help you keep up to date on the info you want.It's a collection of tech info that's updated regularly. You can see if / when it's been updated in your reader, see the title of the updates and a short summary and then decide if you want to load the site or that post or nothing.Bottom LineRSS readers allow you to see the latest updates to sites (and possibly be notified) at-a-glance without having to go to all your sites and load them. It's like peaking into many sites from a single place.Bear Cahill is a software engineer in the Dallas, TX area and runs a few websites including: The Armchair Geek (thearmchairgeek.com),

Domain Registration TipsWhat should I consider when choosing my domain name?? Any .com extension can be used.
To protect your online identity first and foremost you should register. If it is not available you may wish to register an abbreviation of your trading name, add a prefix or a suffix, or include a hyphen (-). You may also wish to consider registering additional domain names that reflect your brands, products, services, venue, events, activities, professions, and / or trademarks. If you have a brand name that is commonly misspelt it is recommended that you also register the misspelling as a domain name and redirect it to your main website.? .com
.com domain names may be registered by any individual or organisation anywhere in the world as they are unrestricted. Therefore, should your preferred domain name be available in the .com domain name space it would be wise to secure it as soon as practicable while it is still available.? Should I register .com or .com.au ?The .com domain name extension, being one of the original domain name extensions, gives the impression that your business has been around for a while and has a well established presence on the web. It is a matter of personal choice depending on what you wish to achieve.http: / / www.domainregistration.com.au / domains / tips /

***I've Turned Into A...*** I?ve turned into a computer geek unimarter UniMarter
***I've Turned Into A...***

I?ve turned into a computer geek! Lord knows, I don?t know how it happened because it wasn?t that long ago that I didn?t even want to turn the thing on. I only bought one because I figured my teenage daughter would have to use it for research, essay papers or Whatever!I?m a member of the baby boomer generation. We didn?t grow up with computers. Besides, what would be exciting about sitting at a computer all day? That, to me, would be the equivalent of a ?time-out? or punishment. As children, my friends and I entertained ourselves outdoors with fun ?interactive? games like Hide and Seek, Tag, You?re It!, Kick the Can, Double Dutch jump rope, Red Light, Green Light and so on and so forth.Homework was done using brain power. And if you didn?t have it, you worked and worked until you got it. I?m not ashamed to say I used my fingers to do math problems sometimes. That may be because we didn?t have calculators, but we did have the Abacus. Remember that, baby boomer buddies? Reading was fundamental back then but we did it by reading the ENTIRE book---not using cliff notes. I?ll never forget the time my 9th grade English teacher made us read ?Moby Dick? as an assignment. I thought she must have been insane! But, in hindsight, I can now say I?m proud to have read one of the classics from cover to cover.But now here I am, thirty-five years later, doing the unthinkable. I wake up and---even before I?ve brushed my teeth or had breakfast---I get on the computer and start checking emails and responding to messages and browsing for News I Can Use for my website. But it doesn?t stop there. I?m BLOGGING?.(a word that wasn?t even in my third edition of the American Heritage Dictionary)? and I?m also networking with other folks who, for Whatever! reasons, are glued to their computers just like me. We exchange thoughts and ideas and sometimes even prayers. I do take periodic breaks to do less important things like exercise, cook meals and clean the house. But after that, it?s me and my computer until bedtime.I?m also learning there?s lots of money to be made through this machine! I haven?t quite figured out how that all works yet, but you can best believe when I do, you won?t be hearing from me as much anymore. I?ll be off somewhere enjoying the fruits of my labor and giving my fingers a much needed rest!

***3 - Blogging: Let's Talk About SEO***

Copyright 2006 Chonticha MarijneBy now, you should have a blog well-fed with satisfying, juicy content that's meeting the needs of your niche. However, you'll require more traffic to be able to generate any profit from it. Lots more traffic!How do people search for information? Indeed, with search engines such as Google, MSN and Yahoo!, to name the most popular ones. In order to get people to visit your blog, you'll need to rank high in their search results. People don't generally look much further than the first couple of pages of search results, unless it's something very specific that they're after. So if your blog is listed on page thirty, then there's more work to do!Getting your website or blog a high page ranking is called search engine optimization (SEO). It's as complex as it sounds, but don't let that stop you from conquering a few easy techniques to get you good results for certain keywords or keyword phases. Let's take "freshwater aquarium fish" as an example. There are currently over 3.1 million search results on Google. I won't even attempt to beat that, so let's narrow that down to "freshwater aquarium fish care". That gives us the more manageable 963,000 results, so in this instance, let's say we optimize your blog for "freshwater aquarium fish care".Ideally, when it comes to monetizing your blog, you'll want to optimize for keywords or keyword phrases that get over 10,000 searches a month in a market that's not very competitive. ("Home business ideas and opportunities" for instance, yields over 113 million search results, so you could say that's pretty competitive!) You can download a free keyword suggestion tool from http: / / http: / / www.goodkeywords.com.We'll start with a simple on-page SEO technique: include the chosen keyword phrase in the title of your blog. "Freshwater Aquarium Fish Care Revealed!" would work very well. The term you're optimizing for should also be contained in your page heading. That's the HTML code enclosed within the h1 and / h1 tags. In a blog, these are usually the post titles, so try to use "freshwater aquarium fish care" as often as possible, where relevant. It's also important that you use it in the body of your posts whenever possible, but be careful not to overdo it! The search engines may think that you're spamming your blog with keywords and lower your ranking dramatically as a result. Just remember that you're blogging for visitors, not for search engines!Now, let's take a look at factors outside your blog that are of great influence to your search engine rankings (off-page SEO). First and foremost is the number of links to your blog (also called "backlinks"). Generally speaking, the more backlinks you have, the more the search engines will assume that you are an authority on your blog topic and the higher they will rank your blog in their search results. However, please ensure that your backlinks are relevant. Hundreds of online dating links are not relevant if you're blogging about freshwater aquarium fish care. On the other hand, a single link from an authoritative site about freshwater aquarium fish will get the search engines crawling about your blog like spiders in "Arachnophobia"...The most cost effective way to get high quality links from other sites is simply to ask for it. Presuming that your blog contains high quality, original content, then you stand a good chance of getting webmasters to include a link to your blog on their sites or even to write about you. Aim at community-based sites and other blogs, rather than commercial sites. Just send them an email, but state that you were "looking for information on aquarium fish" and not "looking for link partners". Mention how you think their site provides valuable insight, how your visitors would benefit from their information and that you have put their link on your blog and ask whether they'd be open to doing the same with your link on their site. Do this with at least 30 suitable sites and you should soon have a healthy number of backlinks. However, don't be surprised if some webmasters don't respond to your email at all. Just remove their links from your site and move on.It's also possible to automate your link building with link exchange services such as http: / / http: / / http: / / www.linkmetro.com
.Because many individual blog posts are time-sensitive, it's recommended that you get all the backlinks to point to your main page. The text of the link (known as anchor text) is also of great importance. Anchor text containing "freshwater aquarium fish care" will greatly boost your SEO rankings for that keyword phrase, so keep this in mind when you're requesting backlinks from other webmasters.Getting high-quality backlinks to your blog will help attract more targeted visitors, enable the search engines to find and index your blog and ultimately allow you to rank higher in search engine results.Chonticha Marijne runs several Internet ventures, including http: / / www.e-Abundance.com , http: / / www.e-AbundanceTools.com and http: / / www.e-AbundanceSystem.com .

Key word relevant content: Meaning, stay focused on 1 subject and about 2 - 4 related keywords or phrases. Decide ahead of time what you will write about, do research to see if the topic has keywords that match and use those keywords.
? With those keywords or phrases spread them out so they appear within every 100 words or so.

***Flat Screen Monitors: A Technological Wonder***

You probably are already aware that there are two types of computer monitors available today: the big and clunky cathode-ray (CRT) tube monitors and the newer flat screen monitors. These flat panel monitors have a number of advantages over the older type of computer monitors. They are far sleeker, more space-saving and weigh much less. Flat screen monitors are also designed to be more energy-efficient and reduces eye strain. Flat screen monitors use the technology called Liquid Crystal Display or LCD. There are also flat screen CRT monitors available. Both LCD flat panel monitors and CRT flat-screen monitors are fast gaining popularity as a much sleeker and more modern alternative to traditional, bulky monitors of yesterday.An LCD or liquid crystal display is characterized by a thin and flat display device that is composed of either color or monochrome pixels that are arranged in front of a light source or a reflector. There are two types of LCDs: transmissive and reflective displays. These types differ according to the source of light. A reflective LCD is illuminated by exterior light. A common example of a reflective LCD is the display of a digital watch. Meanwhile, a transmissive display draws its light source from the back through a backlight. This category of LCDs usually requires high luminance levels. Televisions, computer displays, PDAs and mobile phones use transmissive LCDs.Flat screen monitors have significant advantages over the traditional CRT monitors. Because these monitors are perfectly flat visually and physically, they offer a clearer, more vivid and undistorted pictures from any angle. The images on a flat panel monitor is much more crisp and high quality. This is the reason why flat screen monitors significantly reduce eye strain among its users, another important advantage. There is no curvature on the screen?s surface that will distort any on-screen images. And since the pictures are sharper with more brilliant colors, staring at a flat screen monitor becomes more of a pleasure than a strain.Flat screen monitors are also much more ergonomic. This means that these types of monitors follow ergonomic requirements and thus add comfort and convenience for the worker. The flat screen monitor is viewable from any angle and is typically fitted on a swivel base with adjustable headlight. This allows for more freedom of movement for the user since the flat screen monitor can be easily adjusted to meet the specific viewing needs. Flat screen monitors are also very space-efficient taking up less desk real estate than older computer monitors. Most LCD flat screen monitors are only about an inch thick and weighs nearly five kilograms.If you are planning to buy a new flat screen monitor, there are some aspects you should consider. First, choose the resolution that is most appropriate to your needs. Next, assess the price. Generally, flat screen monitors will cost you about $200-$250 for a CRT screen while LCD flat panel monitors cost $500 to $700. Both LCD and CRT flat screen monitors have an average lifespan of about 5 to 7 years, and also come with warranty ranging from 1 to 3 years. Before you purchase, make sure that you do your research on the many different brands of flat screen monitors available in the market today. A flat screen monitor will definitely enhance your computing experience, whether for work or for play.freenetpublishing.com is a free site that offers articles and resources.

Recent experience and and excellent article in CIO magazine have me thinking about some of the things that are wrong about the Culture of Technology.The article in CIO magazine "How to Save the Internet", the hilarious March 28 post (India Calling) at the Landmark.org Blog (I found them because they had signed up for my "Blinking Cursor PC Security Newsletter"), my own experience with HP Technical ?Support? and Technical Support with Western Digital about an external hard drive all have something in common.They all highlight the fact that Technologists (software and hardware companies) don?t get the fact that the vast majority of their consumers are not Technologists!One of the points that the CIO article (about improving the security of the Internet) makes is that Technologists should ?Treat End Users Like The Dummies They Are.?While the characterization may be offensive, the principle is legitimate (read the article).For example, why should updating a computer system?s software to enhance security (i.e. Microsoft SP2) NOT be automatic? (Yes, I know that for SP2 as of April 12 it is ? but it?s the principle I am discussing). Why should millions of computers owned by non-Technologists be vulnerable to becoming Zombies and tools of hackers to invade and compromise other computers?Yes, there should be an option for the Technologists to opt-out (they have more complex needs), but the default should mitigate towards a higher level of security.Another manifestation of the Arrogance of Technologists is the information that comes with virtually any technology. It is almost incomprehensible to anyone not specializing in that particular aspect of technology. Try reading any of the articles in Microsoft?s knowledge base. The information necessary is there, but it might have just as well been written in cuniform.I recently purchased a 250 GB Western Digital External Hard Drive as a backup, to follow my own advice in my PC Security eBook "Help! Something?s Got Hold of My Computer and It Won?t Let Go!? The instructions from Western Digital for dealing with the file structure of the hard drive were incomprehensible to me, and even confusing and incomplete for Western Digital Tech Support. I pity the non-Techie who tried to wend their way through this problem.Finally, there is the issue of outsourcing Technical Support to other countries.I know, the first thing that pops into people?s minds is ?Here?s a guy who?s an ?America Firster? who is prejudiced against any foreigners.?My history belies that perception. I?m an ex-Peace Corps Volunteer, speak several languages and was Director of the Human Rights Center in Portland, Oregon.However the issue is customer service, satisfaction and the costs involved. As documented in Bud Stolker?s Landmark.org blog, there is a difference not only in language (yes, I know that English is the primary language of India, where much of HP Tech Support is located - but just because it is "English" does not mean it can be understood!), but also culture.Here is the script with which the HP Tech Support phone is answered in India:?Denku for galling HB. Sor, id is my gol to make zhur you ar gombleedly sadisfied doday, ifa denny dime you need me to sbeeg slowoor or rebeet zumding, I will be habby do do zo.?That?s all very well and good, that they address up front that there may be some difficulty communicating. How much better would it be if they ELIMINATED the problem?Here are the other facts HP should be considering:
1) If the average computer user is calling Tech Support he / she is probably frustrated, upset, fearful that their data will disappear and usually are under some kind of deadline.2) They usually DO have to ask Tech Support to ?sbeeg slowoor or rebeet zumding,? often many times. This costs the customer additional time and stress and results in having to make multiple calls back to Tech Support (which costs HP more money and loses them customers).3) I was once told to ?take my computer to Radio Shack,? an ?authoorized HB rebair fazilidy where a benge tegnizhun will diagnoz the broblem.?Is anyone aware of a Radio Shack that actually has a ?bench technician?? It was obvious that the Tech Support rep had NEVER been in a Radio Shack.4) When I asked to speak to a supervisor, I was told that they were all in a meeting. When I asked for the Tech Support?s name he said he was not allowed to tell me. When I insisted, he said his last name was ?Pavilion.? How strange that it was the same as the name of an HP product. See Bud?s Blog for a similar situation.In the U.S., most call centers give a first and last name, and often a Customer Service Representative?s ID number at the beginning of the call.The point is that Technology companies are insensitive to the fact that their Customers are NOT Technologists, they are ordinary people who are just trying to get the Technology to work.Steve Freedman

***What are Trolls, Zombies and Demons in The Online World?*** unimarter UniMarter
***What are Trolls, Zombies and Demons in The Online World?***

I'm surrounded by strange jargon and I feel like an extra in a B-grade horror
movie. One mailing list I'm on has "trolls", and the latest virus can turn my computer
into a "zombie", and my ISP keeps talking about "demons"! Egads! Do I need some
sort of exorcist to use my computer now??On the assumption that you aren't John Carpenter and that you aren't trolling my
weblog, let me tell the scoop here! First off, don't panic, don't call in an exorcist,
and for goodness sake, don't spill a bowl of pea soup on your keyboard!Like any community, the online community has evolved its own specialized
language to more accurately communicate concepts. There are some famous
examples of professional languages, but my favorite is that Australian butchers
created a language where they literally spoke backwards so that they could talk
without customers having a clue what they were saying.But back to our own particular form of communication!Participate on a mailing list or discussion board long enough and you'll find that
there are certain people who pop in and add messages that are either diametrically
opposed to the shared values of the group or subtly insulting or demeaning. If the
author is just offensive, well, there are people like that everywhere, unfortunately.
They're just, well, offensive.But there are other people who post offensive material for effect, to produce a
reaction and rile up the members of the community. They're trolls. If you go to an
Apple Macintosh discussion group and post "Macs are garbage and all cool people
use PCs", or go to a United Nations weblog and post "The UN is the tool of Satan" or
add a comment on the Holocaust Museum Web site that "the Holocaust is a fiction
invented by Zionists", odds are pretty darn good you're a troll.Most communities ignore trolls or, sometimes, one person responds with "troll:
ignore" or similar to ensure that even new community members avoid wasting their
time trying to engage the author in a debate. Sometimes, though, groups can spin
out of control completely where the troll engages in an increasing incoherent debate
with community members, who, predictably, start foaming at the mouth because of
this person assailing their core, fundamental beliefs.Referring to the original definition of trolls, I think they'd all do best to just climb
back under their bridges and wait for the next person to come across, personally.Zombie computers are, like the staggering mindless hulks that star in all those B-
grade movies, doing things without you being able to control them. Typically
nefarious things, like sending out thousands upon thousands of Web page or
network ping requests (that's called more formally a distributed denial of service
attack), helping spread a virus (which is so common that people forget that most
virii actually take over a computer), or, the latest twist, serve as spam relay points,
blindly sending out thousands of unwanted junk email messages.My understanding of how this works is that a computer - typically a PC running
Windows - is infected by a virus which then launches a program running secretly on
the computer. Think "brain eating fungus" here. That program then communicates
with a central control program that sends it a master email message and a list of
thousands of email addresses. The connection is severed, and your Dell, Gateway,
HP, Toshiba, or other PC suddenly starts opening up and firing off email after email.
All with your return address, your return IP on the tracking data, and without any
telltale "Mailer: Zombie Mail 1.35 (installed by B.xx virus on 2 Feb 05)" header to let
people know you're not the bad guy.To revive a zombie computer you need to sacrifice a chicken, pouring the blood into
the ... oh, no. Sorry, wrong article. What you need to do is run an antivirus program
from its boot CDROM (which, by definition, is clean and virus-free), which should be
able to at least quarantine if not kill the zombie infection.Finally, when your ISP talks about demons, she's really talking about Unix programs
that run "in background" 24x7, and they're properly spelled "daemons". If you're
reading this message, you've sent a Web page query to the Web server daemon
running on my own server, and if you then follow-up by sending me an email
message that explains why we never have angelic or positive metaphors in the
online world (which I'd love to discuss!) then your email program would connect to
my email daemon, running a protocol known as the simple mail transfer protocol
(SMTP).A long answer for a simple question, but in a medium built around writing and
broadcast communication, and initially designed by nerdy misfits who preferred
Dungeons & Dragons to cocktail parties with the sorority across the street, it should
be no surprise that the jargon is so colorful and evocative.Dave Taylor runs AskDaveTaylor!,

***Using Alive Organizer As A Scheduler*** The program Alive unimarter UniMarter
***Using Alive Organizer As A Scheduler***

The program Alive Organizer is intended for controlling one of the most important resources?time. The better we distribute our time between what we have to do and plan the current affairs taking into account long-term goals, the higher results we achieve. But planning your time with Alive Organizer provides you with not only the standard set: a calendar, schedules and tasks?but also the indispensable list of contacts with the most complete information and comfortable access, the list of notes (making it considerably easier to document minor tasks) and tasks with a set time for starting and finishing them, the list of events, the list of diaries (for documenting processes extended in time and requiring further analysis), etc.
Alive Organizer has a distinguishing set of features making it much easier to plan and manage your time. For example, you can view the to-do list both for the current date and for several days ahead. You can set an automatic reminder about starting or finishing a task. You can set any task to be carried out regularly (each year, day, hour, etc.).
In order to effectively use Alive Organizer, you should clearly understand the purpose of planning and benefits you get as a result. In other words, you should realize that the main advantage of planning is that it saves your time. The overall practical experience proves that spending more time on planning results in less time being spent on carrying out tasks and eventually in saving your time on the whole. However, it is obvious that spending more and more time on planning cannot constantly lead to saving time and increasing the efficiency of your work. Practical experience proves that spending ten minutes regularly at the beginning of a workday on planning saves you a couple of hours a day and, what is no less important, improves the way you spend your time. In other words, it is necessary to spend maximum 1% of overall period duration (a month, a week, a day, etc.) on planning.
There are a lot of tools that are used to make your control over your plans and also the planning process itself more effective. It can be a usual sheet of paper or a paper organizer. There are also a lot of software products supposed to make the planning procedure easier.
The Vitolab Software company offers its product Alive Organizer that allows you to plan you time and control your plans. Alive Organizer was developed when there were a lot of similar software on the market and that is why Alive Organizer takes into account many drawbacks present in other software and also introduces several features allowing you to make your work with the program easier and the planning process simpler.
Originally, Alive Organizer was created to be used within the Vitolab Software company. All employees in Vitolab Software use Alive Organizer to make their own schedules, to control and document their tasks. The deployment of Alive Organizer in the company allowed us to considerably increase the efficiency of the team and cut down the number of prolongations in case with projects. The overall effect of planning our time and deploying Alive Organizer was considerably higher than expenses on its development and implementation.Zavada Andrey

***Blogs Being Used to Transmit Malicious Code*** The popula unimarter UniMarter
***Blogs Being Used to Transmit Malicious Code***

The popularity of the weblog, or blog, on the internet has recently been exploited by hackers, making the blog the next in a long line of online elements of which to beware. If you've been following the Black Hat security event, you may have heard about the presentation in which spokespeople from SPI Dynamics discussed the new risk surrounding blog site visitation. In case you missed it, it goes a little something like this:

According to an SPI Dynamics new release, Hackers have begun transferring malicious JavaScript code to a user's computer via RSS and Atom feeds through which popular blogs are subscribed. The code is designed to run on the subscriber's computer, leaving it open for a hacker to install keyloggers, spyware, and other malware; scan the computer and network for open ports; and exploit vulnerabilities in the computer. Ways in which the code can be transmitted to a user's computer include:

Hackers can piggyback the code within the comments of a public blog.
Links on a web feed when clicked could lead to an infected blog.
The author of a web feed may accidentally paste the code into his blog.
The feeds themselves might directly transmit code through user download.According to Business Week Online, the Pew Internet and American Life Project reports that in September 2005, 27 percent of adult internet users admitted to reading blogs, which translates to a large number of people who could be affected by this new attack. Reading blogs, which can encompass every topic under the sun from international news to knitting to celebrity gossip, may seem like a harmless online pastime, but due to this new transferal technique, they may be more harmful than most hacker attacks. Since the JavaScript commands are code and can act without installing an outside file, the commands are able to bypass most antivirus software. Hence, there really is no way for a user to be sure that the blogs they enjoy aren't infecting their computer.

Since this is such a new threat, there aren't really any widespread solutions for it. The code itself is difficult for browser security settings to recognize as an infection because the feeds themselves are stored as HTML files instead of executable files, and HTML files are not considered a threat by security software. Turning off JavaScript capabilities can block JavaScript code, but it is not a practical solution, since so many websites rely on JavaScript for operation. According to SPI Dynamics spokespeople, JavaScript could be re-encoded, but at this time there exists no software to do this job. Bloggers and blog readers alike are advised to filter their feeds to ensure the absence of malicious JavaScript and scan their computers for existing spyware or malware that may have been deposited by a hacker. In the meantime, switching to a less vulnerable reader may help provide extra protection.home.stopsign.com
