Press Releases Are A Small Businesses Best Friend

By Brock Hamilton

Every small business knows that there are certain aspects of running a small business that you will have to face when you own your own business. One of the hurdles that you will have to face is the fact that one day you will have a major announcement that you need to make and will need a way to get it to several people all at once. That my friend is where the press release comes into play.

The press release will be helpful as this will help to get your message out to the rest of the world. So what all is a press release and how will this help me in my quest to spread the word about my product or service to the rest of the world. First you will need to understand the basic concept that is behind the press release. First look at a press release as you would a announcement that you would make about a change in your management structure.

Maybe you are going to announce the new product line up for the fall, you would want to use a press release for such an event. You will need to cover the basics in your release who, what , when, and where this will tell the person all of the important information that they will need in order to get the overall picture as to what is going on and when it is happening.

Many people think that you have to write a 3 page description in order to get the most from your press release. This is not the case as many a press release can be written and all in under a page itself. If you are not one of those people that feel comfortable with writing a press release then you will be able to hire a person that will write it for you so that it will come across as being professional. Many small businesses and even the larger ones will have a person on staff that will be assigned the task of writing a press release when they are needed.

These tips are the basics of a press release; now sure there are other things that will make marketing your business a success but that will be just a lot of time and expense that you might not always have available to you in your budget. Writing a press release can be easy and less time consuming than other methods of driving traffic to your site. Plus it works really well when you write the press release right.

If you need to drive traffic to your website fast then you need to sit down and outline what it is you want to say in your press release. Once you have the outline done, write the press release and start sending it to as many blogs, ezines, and opted in email lists you can get your fingers on!

Make Business Cards Online - Guide to Making Business Cards On The Internet

By Jessica Carlton

Are you wondering how to make business cards online? In this article I am going to tell you how to make business cards on the net.


Having a plan of what you want your card to look like before you actually begin to make the card is always the best idea. Have a broad idea of what is going to work for you and then you can work around what is available on the site that you are going to use.

Picking Your Design

The design that goes onto your card is awfully important. You should always think about what your consumers or contacts would find pleasurable. Having something that the person can relate to on the card might actually make them keep the card longer than if it were not on the card. For instance, if you give a card to someone that loves cats they are much more likely to keep a card with a cat on it versus a card with flowers or boats.

Place Your Information

You should make sure to place your information on the card with a font that is easily read but you should make sure not to bunch up your info together so that it is hard to read. Find a font on the site that you think looks great on your card and then you can test out others easily with the preview feature.

Maybe your business has a lot of info such as a title, address, company name, email address, fax, your name, phone etc. If you clutter your card too much it will not look attractive and your card can appear less professional.


It is a good idea to put your photo on your business card. You will be remembered more quickly if you have your photo on the card that you gave them. In this article you have learned how to make business cards online. You can now easily get quality cards.

Why You Need Power Factor Correction and TVSS Do Not Save Energy

By Robert Holdsworth

In today's energy climate more and more people have become motivated to accomplish what they can to become more energy efficient to conserve energy and money. Regrettably this same climate has encouraged some to take advantage of innocent consumers' desires to save energy and reduce operating expenses.

Vendors that advertise power factor improvement (kVAR correction) and transient voltage suppression to save energy are a good case in point of this bad trend. Recently we are seeing more and more of these businesses cropping up and we believe it is time to set the record straight.

First off, transient voltage surge suppression (TVSS) plays an important part in improving power quality to guard sensitive equipment inside a facility. However, TVSS does not save energy. TVSS's are barely active an infinitesimal portion of a second to defend against voltage surges which only last for less than a millisecond. To actually decrease energy use the TVSS would need to essentially cut power consumption for an extended amount of time which is not what they are designed to do. Again, TVSS is essential to protect susceptible electrical equipment but consumers should steer clear of vendors promising, or even guaranteeing, a reduction in energy consumption.

And what about salespeople who maintain that increasing power factor will save 15% or 20% or 30% of energy consumption and resultant costs? This is false but also a bit trickier.

For homes, power factor correction does zero to save energy because the average home already has an average power factor of approximately 0.97 which is nearly the perfect power factor of 1 or unity. Additionally, the unit (called a capacitor) is installed at the homes main circuit breaker. According to IEEE capacitors must be located at or near the individual inductive motor loads to decrease power system losses by reducing heat and distribution losses known as I2R losses.

So what about commercial and industrial facilities looking to use power factor correction to shrink energy expenditures? It is completely appropriate for a business that is incurring penalties or a kVA billing structure from the utility company to improve the facility's overall power factor by installing a capacitor bank at the main electrical service entrance or individual capacitors at or near the particular motor loads. Doing so will do away with the power factor penalties and/or reduce the kVA demand charges on the electric bill which can save considerable money and provide a significant ROI on the investment.

But what about power factor correction reducing kWh consumption? IEEE also tells us that at most I2R losses only account for 2 to 5% of the total load in a facility. Simple arithmetic tells us that it would be in opposition to the laws of physics to obtain the 15% to 30% energy reduction claimed by some vendors. Consider it. Even if your facility had 5% distribution losses and you could correct 100% of the predicament via power factor correction at every load (which can't be done) you would still save no more than 5% at most. No where close to the claims of some capacitor reps and manufacturers.

All that said, power factor correction when done appropriately will eliminate utility penalties and kVA demand charges, improve facility power quality, increase electrical system capacity, and save a modicum of energy when applied at the proper motor loads in an industrial facility.

So make an investment in transient voltage surge suppression and power factor correction when appropriate and necessary. But caveat emptor!

Green Energy Power!

By Robert Holdsworth

Buyer Beware - Using Power Factor Correction and Transient Voltage Surge Suppression to Reduce Energy Costs.

Today's energy conscious climate has motivated many to do what they can to become more efficient and conserve energy and money. Unfortunately this same climate has prompted others to take advantage of unsuspecting consumers' wishes to save energy and reduce expenses.

Companies that tout power factor improvement (kVAR correction) and transient voltage suppression are a good example of this bad trend. Lately we are seeing more and more of these companies cropping up and feel it is time to set the record straight.

First, transient voltage surge suppression (TVSS) plays a valuable role in improving power quality to protect sensitive equipment inside a facility. However, TVSS does not save energy. TVSS's are only active a tiny fraction of a second to protect against voltage surges which only last for less than a millisecond. To actually reduce energy consumption the TVSS would need to actually cut power consumption for an extended period of time which is not what they are designed to do. Again, TVSS is important to protect sensitive electrical equipment but buyers should avoid vendors promising, or even guaranteeing, that they will reduce energy consumption.

Now what about vendors who claim that improving power factor will save 15% or 20% or 30% of energy consumption and corresponding cost? This one is a little trickier.

For residential applications, power factor does nothing to save energy because the typical home already has an average power factor of about 0.97 which is almost the perfect power factor of 1 or unity. In addition, the device (called a capacitor) is placed at the main circuit breaker. According to IEEE capacitors must be situated at or near the respective inductive loads to reduce power system losses by reducing heat and distribution losses known as I2R losses.

No where near the claims of some capacitor vendors and manufacturers.

All that said, power factor correction when done properly will eliminate utility penalties and kVA demand charges, improve facility power quality, increase electrical system capacity, and save a little energy when applied to the appropriate motor loads.

So make an investment in transient voltage surge suppression and power factor correction when appropriate and necessary. But caveat emptor!

Private Placement Memorandum and OTCBB: How to Make Investors Come Out of The Woodwork

By James Scott

If you are trying to raise capital with a PPM or public entity like OTCBB you need to understand the mind of the investor. After the business plan sells the investor on the business concept you need to sell them on you and your executive staff. You need to stack your executive positions with professionals with a proven track record of success and possess a solid reputation in the industry. You must paint the picture for investors that your business is run by the who's who in your industry and this pedigree is demonstrated by your education, degree, grades in college, professional organizations of which you have been and are currently a member, advisory board positions with other corporate organizations, a track record of setting up and maintaining strategic alliances, networking contacts and more.

When an investor looks at your human resource list on your PPM, business plan or public offering docs it needs to scream power, authority and confidence. Each individual that you place on your advisory board must have a massive contribution other than 'advice'. Advisors should be able to prove their ability to assist in crucial decisions, connect your company with strategic partners and help you get to the next level.

Your legal counsel and CPA should be well known organizations with a long list of successful, well known organizations on their client roster and they should have a lot more to offer your company than just their fee based services. Again, these organizations should be able to set you up with partnerships that will help grow your business. As far as corporate awareness you must include a publicist. The publicist that you choose must be well versed in their comprehension of your industry genre.

They must be able to take your company and get you in front of the proper audience that is conducive to enhancing your growth potential. They must be able to demonstrate their knowledge of viral online marketing as well as traditional means of radio, TV and article promotion. They should be able to reach into their contact list and set you up with one interview after another targeting your specific audience.

These are just a few things to take into consideration when you jump on the fund raising trail. Every individual you have listed on your docs must be able to pass due diligence and have the appeal that reaches into the 'comfort' zone portion of the investor's mind.

Change Your Life for 20 Bucks in 11 Minutes - Be A Winner

By Dr. Jay Polmar

Spend twenty dollars, and 11 minutes of your time - it will change your life in ways you never imagined.

Yes you read this right. In just 11 minutes, you will hear my story, and learn 3 secrets to improving your life through .... Reading. I am sure you know how to read, after all you are reading this article. But just how long will it take you to read this short article. 2 minutes, 5 minutes, longer.

If you are a smart person, you already know what I am talking about - learning how to use your brain properly so that what you read becomes usable data, and knowledge to help you create greater success in life.

Today a story came out on Mexico's national television, of a woman who was imprisoned for shooting her husband because he beat her, and repeatedly sold her to her friends for sexual use and beat her if she refused. Well, she just killed him and went to prison.

While incarcerated, for the first time in her life - she was exposed to books of all kinds. She knew she did wrong but she had years to pay for her mistake and her repayment was to ready and study and enter university through the prison system to study to become a lawyer.

So -- the more you read of a similar subject, the faster you read that subject. The faster you read the subject that you are familiar with, the more that it becomes a part of your long-term memory. That's why when you first study basic primary school math, and you follow it and study smart, and go all the way through college - math is a thing that you become accustomed to. If you've studied really smart, it's really easy, and you can do some of it in your head without calculator or paper and pen.

With reading, it's similar, yet different. Imagine it this way - we teach you in 11 minutes how to read all kinds of materials more rapidly with greater comprehension than before, and get what you need out of it. Of course, it a beginners course, but in 11 minutes your increased your reading speed say 60-80% and as you use the techniques over the next few days the speed increase, and so does your understanding and comprehension.

Once you've spent $20 and studied for 11 minutes you will accomplish a great deal. But, what if you learned also, how to read a book for best understanding and comprehension for test-taking or pleasure, and what if you also learn to write a paper for school, or grad school - without stress in 10 days or less, would that make your life easier.

Change your life in 11 minutes for 20 bucks, you really can't lose. Remember also, the more you read, the better you read, the more you remember - that's how the brain works.

Online Biker Show

By L.J. James

I have been active in the Motorcycle Community for many years. I've stood up for Biker's Rights. As a freelance writer, I've written about Clubs, the Community, and the Brotherhood of the Biker World. I've also been involved in many Biker related events either as a DJ or MC.

For as long as I can remember, I've wanted to combine all of this into a Biker Style Radio Show. A show where I could present and discuss topics that are important to Bikers as well as educate the outside world about the Biker Lifestyle and what it means to be a part of the Biker Community.

I knew it was going to be tough. I spoke with some local radio stations about my idea but, they either wanted a lot of money or they weren't interested. They claim that the "Biker Market" is a niche market and Radio Stations want shows that appeal to everyone.

In the summer of 2008, a guy from Florida called the Paisan, sent me an email stating he had read some of my articles and would like to interview me on his internet radio show, Sunday's Sauce Pot. I gave him a call and after speaking to him, I agreed to be on the show.

I did the show with Paisan and his partner Danny Dawg. It was an unforgettable show and I had a great time. I kept in touch with them and we soon became friends. I told them how I had been thinking about doing my own show. They were only too happy to explain to me how I could have my own internet radio show.

Since the show would be broadcast over the internet, I was a little skeptical. After doing some research, I realized that Internet Radio is an up and coming medium. Even now, some radio manufactures are making radios devoted to broadcasting Internet Radio.

I quickly realized that Internet Radio is more suited to what I wanted to present than traditional Radio due to the fact that I could broadcast my show to all over the world instead of being limited like I would be if I broadcast out of a local station.

The other thing that appealed to me was the fact that people could listen to my show any time they wanted to. Bikers like to travel. With Internet Radio, it doesn't matter where you are as long as you have access to an Internet Radio or Computer and WI-FI or broadband, you can catch the show. The fact that you didn't need a lot of money to start up was also very appealing. With a little help from my friends, I went to work. Finally, after 10 years of dreaming, I was On the Air. The Biker Lowdown Show was born.

The road to success was a little bumpy at first. With the addition of Chuck ( as my co-host, the road got a little smoother. With both of us researching information, we are able to share much more with our ever increasing audience. The addition of a website to compliment the show adds to the experience. The hard work of my webmaster Bjorn has resulted in a website that offers Articles, Video's, a Motorcycle Forum, and more.

I am sometimes amazed by the success of the show. Our Audience continues to increase each week. The Biker Lowdown Chat Room gets busier each week, letting listeners know they are really part of the show. Although we've come a long way, we're still working hard at making the show even more entertaining and informative for all those who ride or dream of riding. We plan on hitting the road so that we can meet and talk with people and reward our listeners with T-Shirts, Bumper Stickers, and more.

Of course we couldn't do it without the support of our listeners and sponsors whose donations make the show possible. To them, THANK YOU!

I invite everyone to check out the show at, and let me know what you think and what topics you'd like to hear discussed.

I am your Bro, LJ James

How To Get An Ex Girlfriend Back With Ease

By Tom Freeno

If you have been searching for advice on how to get an ex girlfriend back you may be overwhelmed by all the information out there. If you have ever heard there are certain "secrets" that will help you get her back then I hate to tell you that you have been lied to. However, there are some things you can do that will help you get her back, they just aren't secrets. But, out of the hundreds of tips I am sure you have read, I am willing to bet there is one that you have never heard of, and this is sad because it is the most important tip out there.

This one tip has the power to make her come closer to you or turn away from you. Once it is used correctly, you stand a great chance of getting her back quickly and easily and having a relationship that is stronger than before the break up even happened. I understand that may sound like a bit of an exaggeration, but it isn't. It is just that powerful.

So what is this tip?

Your Mindset!

If you feel as though you have just been lied to then go ahead and leave. If you are interested in hearing more, then good for you. The only way to get her back is by taking action, but if you don't have confidence when taking actions you are going to struggle when trying to win her over again. You need to be consistent and never give up. If you have the proper mindset you will not give up.

Most people confuse having the right mindset with positive thinking. But once you look at each one in detail, you will realize positive thinking is a good thing, but not near as good as having a proper mindset.

With positive thinking alone, no action is being taken. When you have a great mindset it will drive you to take action. Having both a proper mindset and thinking positive can be an extremely potent thing when trying to get her back.

If you don't already know, having a strategy is incredibly important for getting her back. Make sure you don't try to develop a strategy without the proper mindset.

By Charlie Zelan

Free cell phones for low income families are becoming more common place in recent times. Many low income families find that paying for a regular cell phone plan can be a financial challenge.

The use of cell phones have become all too common these days. Practically everyone has a cell phone. They can be particularly useful during times of emergency. But picking up your cell phone you can make a quick call for help in seconds.

In order for you to obtain free cell phones for low income families, your income has to below a certain amount. If your family gets food stamps then you can probably get free cell phones too.

There is a limitation to using free cell phones though. You are only allowed a certain amount of minutes to use for free each month. After that you have to pay for more minutes which you can do by purchasing prepaid minutes.

Free cell phones for low income families are not free forever. Once you and your family are not considered low income anymore, then you cannot use the cell phones for free. The cell phone company has to check your income every year.

To get free cell phones, you have to find a cell phone provider that has this program. Many states may not have this program yet since it is fairly new.

Once you get in contact with a carrier, fill out their application and provide to them pertinent information. These information may include your pay stubs and W2s.

Be sure you keep track of your minutes used every month. You do not want to run out of minutes when you really need it most. Check the amount of minutes you have used frequently each month. You can even make a schedule detailing how many minutes you can use each week.

Due Diligence Problems? Pass With Flying Colors

By James Scott

Why pay a publicist outrageous fees to get you a tiny insignificant article in a newspaper or magazine rag when you can literally become an industry niche sensation overnight using a carefully constructed video and a handful of long tail industry specific keywords?

Traditional publicity firms have become that'72 bowling ally loitering, disco dancing undesirable while a new breed of publicists have stepped in and transformed the industry from paper, to cyberspace in only a few short years. Why traditional publicists have been adjusting that pathetic comb over hairstyle, young and aggressive publicists have been creating publicity techniques that deliver results in 24 to 48 hours as opposed to 6 to 8 weeks and as far as results, there is no comparison.

Online marketing and publicity techniques such as creative video submission, if done properly can transform the direction of a failing company to "THE" industry powerhouse almost instantly by loading the video with solid, well thought out descriptions and targeted long tail keyword tags. A publicist who understand the concept of pure video publicity can tailor a campaign that can outperform any traditional publicity technique ever devised by the good ole' boy networks who overcharge and under deliver for their clients.

Video promotion will expand far past the tiny geographic proximity of a city, across state lines and into international territory. Publicists that specialize in video marketing and other online methods used in strategic combination with one another, will have the client dominating every aspect of their industry niche.

Targeted video advertising by the Web 2.0 type publicists translates into instant client results that build stronger client relations and can transform the future of any company in any industry. Publicity marketing will always offer a turn-key solution to massive amounts of traffic, branding, marketing exposure and all the bells and whistles of a dozen traditional publicity firms.

Taking A Company Public Only Works With The Right Publicity

By James Scott

As a publicist I'm constantly barraged with the latest and greatest way to get my client's brand out to the public in an orderly yet expedient manner. Fly-by-night methods and organizations come and go, yet the original promotional concepts that yield that greatest results are still at the forefront of the publicity industry, they've just evolved and taken a different shape.

Pursuing to the emotional pressure points of the populace while weaving a web of information and post hypnotic cues through the cynical conscious minds to the unconscious faculty of legions of oblivious targets (oops! I mean 'potential customers') is still the name of the game. Television, the visual stimulus that fed exhausted, lackluster minds with a temporary, emotional escape from reality has been replaced by web-mercials and the fast pace of viral media.

The informative minds that would gather facts on industry, politics and special interest concepts once supplied by the New Yorker and the New York Times is now replaced by the 24/7 information tornado of Web 2.0. Those colorful ads in Time and the Sunday paper have been overshadowed by interactive flash ads that cater to the senses of sight and sound. And of course the idiot radio DJ that would spit out grotesque and perverted one-liners while simultaneously converting the listeners mind matter to mush has been replaced by special interest audio and video Podcasts.

The actions and reactions of the general population have kept the same structure, but the adaptability and ability to absorb messages has evolved. When marketing to the masses the path to the decision making sector of the mind is still initiated with a single stimulus such as an image, sound or scent. When the attention is attracted, keep that initial stimuli active like the hypnotic dance of the cobra, then use the other senses to input messages for instant or future action, in most cases this action is a purchase.

Using radio and TV to promote a business on a shoestring or unlimited budget is like passing up a brand new luxury sedan for a'85 Hyundai. These methods are out of date and should only be used as modest forms of passive branding while the heavy lifting of promotional branding and call to action publicity marketing should be done with online video, social and news bookmarking, press release distribution, blogging, unique article distribution, Podcasts and other innovative white-hat methods that cater to habits of modern man.

Tips for Spyware Detection and Removal

By Scott McKenzie

Speak and Understand The Italian Language

By Robertson Kunz

There are many foreign languages to learn but if you are considering Italian, great! Italian is the descendent of Latin but is considered to have much simpler grammar than its ancestor. Additionally, Italian is used by over 60 million people so you will have plenty of people to practice with.

You may be interested in learning Italian for a variety of reasons. Perhaps you are going on a vacation to Italy or intend to live there.

If you already speak another romance language like Spanish or French, you will find that Italian is very similar. Many linguists estimate that the lexical similarity between Italian and French is 89% while the lexical similarity between Italian and Spanish is 82%. Even if you have only studied Spanish or French in high school, you will find that the grammar is quite similar and easy to pick up.

For English speakers, Italian is often remarked to have a "pleasing" sound to it, most likely due to its great use of vowels and especially its use of vowels at the end of words. Unfortunately, this stress of vowels also means that listening to Italian seems like an incomprehensible stream to most English-speaking Italian language learners just beginning their studies.

Italian differs from English in that nouns are split into two genders, masculine and feminine. Also, English speakers will find that Italian has verb conjugations that are quite different depending on the subject of the sentence.

Word order, however, is quite similar between Italian and English. Both languages are subject-verb-object languages and because the syntax is similar, it will be very easy for you to start putting together your own sentences in Italian even as a learner.

By Phillip Guye

How does it work?

Green screen technology is the mixing of 2 images together. A solid background color is utilised so that another image can be transposed in front of the main picture. More frequently than not, green is the color used for this reason though blue is also commonly used. Green is more popular among filmmakers because image sensors in camcorders are delicate to it. Green camera channels have less noise and can make the cleanest masks. Also, the color green is sometimes used as it doesn't have to be illuminated much, as compared to other colors. This makes the green screen the ideal background of different productions from weather reports to big budget Hollywood flicks.

One vital use of the chroma key screen is that it permits the user to get rid of the need to find an honest to goodness background. Green screens permit filmmakers and photographers to be flexible. With green chroma key screen technology, any image can be added and used as the final background. This is how many Hollywood personalities end up in far flung regions of the universe or in traditional towns that no longer exist in this time.

Green screen Hollywood technology is principally used by pros. Except for being a typical tool employed in movies, it is also used for mag shoots, TV adverts, and studio photography. This is how shocking photographs and visual spectacles are made available to anyone who would desire something special for movies and photographs. When used the best way, green screens can help produce great pictures only the imagination can cook up.

Green Screen Hollywood - Brief History

By Phillip Guye

Green screen Hollywood technology, a. K. A chroma key is a technique used by filmmakers to mix 2 separate pictures together. This works by making the background ( a solid color which is usually green or blue ) clear in order to show another image which is the particular background that'll be shown on film. This strategy of filming is a. K. A color keying, blue screen, and color separation overlay ( CSO ). It was primarily used for weather reports. Forecasters were shot in front of chroma key screens and the background was replaced by actual maps that indicate weather predictions. The chroma key strategy is also used by filmmakers and photographers alike.

The green screen first made its appearance in the 1930's at RKO Radio Pictures. The background used back then was blue. This technique of film making was developed in order to create special effects for the film "The thief of Bagdad." aside from the chroma key strategy, filmmakers trusted a really tedious and laborious process called "travelling matte." This made transition such as "wipes" possible.

Larry servant is thought to be in charge of pioneering the blue screen system. In fact, he even took home an Academy Award for visible effects for his work in "The burglar of Bagdad." After his success in the 30's, butler was the first individual to use chroma key technology in Technicolor, paving the way for modern green screen Hollywood technology.

The first films to take advantage of Chroma Key technology was the flick adaptation of Ernest Hemingway famous short story, "The Old Man and the Sea," starring Spencer Tracy. After the "Old Man and the Sea," more films used the chroma key methodology. Some famous film that employ chroma key technology are The Empire Strikes Back, Lord of the Rings, Titanic, Star Trek, and even three hundred. Films that make use of CGI or computer generated pictures are also made with aid from green screen technology. This is how having out of this world settings and amazing creatures are able to be shown on film.

Today, green screen Hollywood technology isn't just restricted to big budget flats. It's also utilized in photography. From the initial blue screen, green was used later on because filmmakers discovered that a green background doesn't need boring lighting. Cameras are most delicate to this color, so the result of films shot on green screens are easier to work with and manipulate. With that said, chroma key technology is now known to photographers and filmmakers' best friend.

Research Gives Phones A Clean Bill of Health

By Jon Hunter

A scientific survey shows that we can now be sure that cell phones do not pose a significant brain tumour risk. These findings come from detailed analysis of trends in brain cancer in European countries in the 30 years up to 2003, which did not tie any cancer trends to patterns of cell phone usage.

Researchers spent years analyzing annual incidence rates of the two widespread types of brain tumours-glioma and meningioma-among a sample of people aged 20 to 79 from Scandinavian Countries from 1974 to 2003.

Over the 30 years which the study examined, nearly 60,000 patients were diagnosed as suffering from one of these two types of brain tumour.

The finds of the research conclude that "In Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden, the use of mobile phones increased sharply in the mid-1990s; thus, time trends in brain tumours incidence after 1998 may provide information about possible tumours risks associated with mobile phone use,".

They did discover a small, steady increase in brain tumours, which started in 1974, long before mobile phones became a factor.

"No change in incidence trends were observed from 1998 to 2003', researchers have stated. Which would have been when researchers expected tumours should start to manifest if they are linked to mobile phone radiation, based on the assumption that it took five to 10 years for a tumour to develop?

It is feasibly possible, Deltour's team wrote, that it takes longer than 10 years for tumours caused by mobile phones to turn up, that the tumours are too rare in this group to show a useful trend, or that there are trends but they are in subgroups too small to be measured in the study, however these weaknesses are common in research and such trends would buck the evidence presented as yet.

It's known that brain tumours latency can be up to 30 years, so some consider this absurd to try and draw conclusions from this short period of time. Also, the researchers did not mention age-specific incidence of brain tumours, even though you will see an increase in age-specific incidence of brain tumours before an increase in the general population.

Also on this point, the research data was actually collected and available up until 2007, but the researchers cut the analysis off at 2003. This is currently being ire examined to find out if the extra four years of data would alter the study results.

Educational software: Learn With Fun

By Benedict Perez

Now a days children of small age show interest in computers. The basic thing for which they use computer is for playing games. Whenever you see a small child sitting in front of a computer, it is definite that he is playing game. By looking at this thing, educational software is being developed. Education software means teaching in a computer way. Let us discuss this in detail.

Education software consists of numerous games. But just notice one thing, everything comes in form of games. This is because children enjoy playing games and educational software is designed in such a way that children playing these games can both enjoy and learn new things.

Educational software is also for adults. This software consists of lessons on different subjects like learning a new language; learn to play a musical instrument, practicing for a new exam, etc. Adult software is not with games but with enjoyable lessons.

You will find a number of educational software for children, teens and adults. These software are Learn to type, language software, school software, toddler, and preschool and kindergarten software, grade school software, middle and high school software, reading and writing software, SAT and other exam prep software, math software and math games, science software, history software, storybooks, animals and wildlife, software for deaf, art software, learning games, drawing games, thinking games, mystery games, chess, learn to play an instrument, dictionary and bible.

Now we will discuss some of the tips that you should keep in mind before buying educational software for your little toad. First of all you should verify by reading all the things on the cover of the software. Then go and read the reviews given by other buyers on the internet. Check on internet if the game is available at low price. If it is then prefer to get it from there. Also check if the software you are going to buy is not pirated and does not cause any harm to your computer.

Always buy software that is made for a particular age. Suppose your child is four years old. Then buy one that is specially formulated for that age group. If you will buy software which is not formulated for that age group, you will only end up wasting your money. You can find the information about the age on the box. So read all the instructions before buying one.

Before purchasing educational software check its specifications. Check if the specifications match the specifications of your computer. So it is important to read the package instructions before buying one for yourself. Just take an example: Mac software will not run on PCs, and PC software will not run on Macs.

Lastly check the difficulty level of the software. If the software is high on difficulty level then it is important that you buy software of low difficulty level. Start from the first level of the game and then work on. Children enjoy playing games that are designed in educational software.

By Michael Shinoda

You can expect more than a Slider mobile phone with 8MP camera, excellent sound quality and A-GPS with Google Maps and touchscreen control for your media functions with Sony Ericsson Aino.

The Sony Ericsson Aino is a touchscreen phone with a slide-out alphanumeric keypad. It has an excellent 8 megapixel camera, WiFi and GPS, and is the first phone to feature Remote Play support. This lets you control and access media content on your PS3 from your Aino using an HSDPA or Wi-Fi connection. It's a powerful multimedia phone with a compact design and good looks. But it's expensive and we're not big fans of the keypad.

After all, who wouldn't want instant access to their digital content on their PS3 from their mobile phone? As long as there is mobile internet available on the Aino, the user can sit back at watch whatever content is on that large PS3 hard drive.

In addition to that huge connect-to-PS3 as their biggest selling point, the Aino can also sync wirelessly to your PC. Other features include a 8.1 Megapixel camera, 3G connectivity, and assisted GPS. It also comes with a Bluetooth headset, a wireless dock, and light-up headphones.

We like the Aino, but it's not perfect. Gripes include the keypad, the lack of a 3.5mm audio jack, and the general feeling of the phone being overpriced. Looking at the positives, you get a great looking phone with powerful multimedia features, remote Play support for your PS3, and plenty of extra accessories for your money.

A Satellite Direct Scam Option

By Eric Blake

You've probably heard about this new style of software on the web these days. Many companies are coming up with programs that give you access to thousands of television channels, all from your computer.

One of the leading companies offering such a platform is Satellite Direct, whose one-time payment of less than 50 dollars allows users to watch more channels than they could ever possibly need.

No matter how ready someone may be to hit the purchase button, anything on the web should always get special attention before it's bought. People end up doing research to make sure that it's not a Satellite Direct scam gives them the information they're looking for

This article is going to focus on some of the key points you should know about Satellite Direct TV for computers. Whether you know these things or not, I'm not sure, but I imagine that you'll learn a few new things nonetheless. The following questions are those that I'm asked most often when it comes to the product.

The first thing people wonder is whether Satellite Direct is legal. The answer to this question is yes. Thanks to some legislation known as the free to air laws, all of these channels are legally broadcast and transmitted via satellites.

Hidden fees is another area of interest that usually seems to arise. No one wants to pay something up front with the unexpected need to pay all kinds of costs further down the line. Thankfully, you'll legitimately only pay for this software once, making the cost of lifetime access extremely reasonable.

Those who are less tech savvy often wonder whether they may need to buy some extra equipment necessary to make this all possible. If this accurately describes your situation, you'll be glad to know that all you need to do is download and install the software.

After answering these frequently asked questions, I'm hoping that I covered whatever it was that was on your mind. If I've addressed your concerns, I think you'll be amused by what this software has to offer.

Download Games For Wii

By Bryan Gem

Now it's not just the console that is great, Games For Wii are swell too. This is a real breakthrough for Nintendo. After all, video games are the lifeblood of their console. With the likes of Wii Fit, Mario Kart, Wii Play and many, many others going great guns, Nintendo is now firmly perched atop the pack in console game titles. According to market researcher NPD Group, Games For The Wii grabbed the top three spots.

Now that the Wii Download has secured pole position in both console and game titles, what can Wii fanciers look forward to? Like a good company, Nintendo would do well to galvanize its advantage with a price review. Price of the Wii console is already by far the most competitive in the top league but that cannot be said of its game titles. With the critical mass already nailed, wouldn't it be win-win if Wii dropped its game price in return for locking down its fan-base?

The Wii Download is made for across-the-board gamers. For every man, woman and child, there is a game to play. Skill, thrill, fitness, brains, anything, it caters to all age groups too. Not unlike the television onto which it's wired, the Wii is fast becoming a standard household item. So in order for it to essentially serve its purpose, the price of Download Games For Wii games must be affordable and acceptable by the entire audience, not just the hard-core section.

Reports have shown that the average Wii gamers purchase less than 4 games a year. That's hardly near its potential. With the kind of new titles that are coming on fast and furious, the sales of games for Wii should shoot right through the roof unless of course there's something like the costliness of the games squarely in the way of its own gamers. That seems to be the case so the natural forces of commercialism duly go to work.

Actually, die-hard Wii-gamers have not turned over and die. What they have resorted to in droves lately is to Download Wii Games Free from membership sites online. The steep price of Wii games may have turned out to be a blessing in disguise for these fans as they now have access to unlimited download on not only Wii games but all sorts of media too for barely the price of a single game disk from Nintendo. Nintendo cannot slumber on.

Gamers will find a way to get their fix, one way or another. They also want a real good bang for their buck ala Download Games For Wii Free. Nintendo just must slug it out, starting with price. Copyrights infringement lawsuits are have no place in the matter either. These 3rd-party providers do stretch the OB markers but they still toe the legal line. If the heat is too much, people can get out of the kitchen. Trouble is: Nintendo owns the kitchen!

What It Takes To Find A Free Cell Phone

By Traci Bolton

What to know about obtaining a free cell phone means learning the two major methods for doing so. The most common is that one will find a wireless provider that is giving away a phone as a promotional item. For sure, just about everyone today is doing so. In the other, one will participate in a government sponsored program that helps people of certain incomes obtain phones and the airtime to use them.

This second method for obtaining a phone can be a real boon to those who just don't have the income to have a phone in the household or a cell phone that they can make use of. For sure, risking going without some form of telephone coverage really puts people at a disadvantage, especially if there is an emergency at some point or another. Relying on the kindness of others can be a bit uncertain.

A number of companies and organizations exist -- with all having websites on the Internet -- that will aid in helping the person get their free cell phone. Not only will they get the phone, but they'll also have regular cellular service and a certain number of minutes per month which will roll over if they are not used. They will have to provide proof that they meet certain income guidelines, though.

Generally, people wishing to obtain a phone in this manner will also need to be participating in one of a number of federal or state aid and assistance programs, including Medicaid, food stamps or are living in public housing. When it comes to the income levels or guidelines that people must meet, it might be a bit surprising to know that those levels are not that steep.

Those who are receiving less than-5% of the income laid out in federal poverty guidelines or state guidelines generally qualify. Also, no one else in the household can be participating in the cell phone program that is available via sponsorship of the government. However, most people will not have this particular problem when it comes to obtaining a phone.

Keep in mind that anyone wishing to be approved for this sort of aid must also have a real home address and not just a post office box. And, those who hope to be approved will need to be able to supply proof of their participation in one of the programs discussed above. This also is generally no problem, as both the federal government and the states provide plenty of documentation.

When you get right down to it, what it takes to find a free cell phone means that one will be looking at either these government programs or entering into a very basic agreement with just about any wireless cell phone service provider. Many of them are practically throwing in free phones just as a promotional gimmick in order to get someone to sign up with their service these days.

Does The Sender Need A Computer For Fax To Email

By Graham McKenzie

In the current technology based world many people are choosing to take on the advantages of using e mails to receive the faxes that they usually do by fax machine. This is what I would to talk about today so that you can be aware of the benefits to this innovative way to receive copies of documents without having to spend money on any machinery. This method is fax to email

Using a fax machine can prove costly when you think of all the extra expenditures. Not only do you have to maintain the machine itself, you also have to keep refilling the paper stocks, as well as the toners. To add to this you have to pay for the use of the fax line and number then you have to pay for each fax that you send, which can soon add up when you send quite a few.

When you get your faxes by email instead you will find that you will not have such costs, you will just be using the internet in the way that you usually do, therefore no extra costs will be incurred.

You will only need to print pages off when they are needed allowing you to store the information or delete it if it is not needed. Pieces of paper are easily misplaced where as with online storage also being an option, even if your computer breaks you are able to retrieve vital information.

When personal information is being faxed to you, or about you, the last thing you will want is for it to get into the wrong hands. As there is no paper and retrieving e mails is done using a password, this is something that you no longer have to worry about. You will not have to take up space in the office as you can place information you have received in a file on your computer or online.

Rather than having to spend all day awaiting the arrival of a fax you need, you are able to go elsewhere, even pick it up from home or anywhere that you can get any internet access. This will allow you the freedom to get on with other things you may need to do and means that you will not be tied to the one building until documents arrive.

If the person you are communicating with does not have internet access this is not a problem as the service works both ways and will allow you to send an e mail that they can receive by fax. This will mean that you are not incurring the sending costs either. As you can now see there are many benefits from using this service over the fax machine plus you get to free up space for other things that you need and it takes away the clutter and fire hazard that lots of paperwork can cause.

By Mitzi H. Hewitt

When you travel to Australia or even if you live there you may want to let other people know, such as friends and family that you are having a great time and that all is well. When you are on vacation you do not have the time to sit and write a letter yet you would still like to keep in contact with those you care about. A way to do this is by sending the postcards Australia has to offer.

There are many beautiful landmarks, and beautiful places which are printed onto the postcards, only sometimes you want something a bit more personal and a way to avoid having to look around for a post office that you can buy a stamp from.

You are able to create a postcard online and use your holiday snaps to create it. This means that you are able to do so anywhere you can get internet access, which is not hard in this day and age, Some people can do all of this from their phones as long as they have uploading capabilities and this will mean that not only can you show off where you have been, you can also show through pictures the amount of enjoyment you are getting from your trip.

Because you are able to do all of this from your laptop using wi-fi, your phone or another place you will find that you can also save a lot of time as you do not have to search around for a stamp as all of this is included in the price.

Be unique as you will never find another postcard on sale that is the same as yours which will allow you to send a postcard to friends and family who collect them and know that you will not be replicating another person's gesture.

You are able to show a lot more feeling that you can put into words when you send a personalized picture and you can also add messages if you wish to the postcard as you would any other only even those with the worst of handwriting will be able to get the message across, and the same goes for sending one to people who are unable to read. This kind of postcard is effective yet looks as though you have put a lot more effort in than you actually have.
