Europe walk walk walk

Europe's most popular cities and places to stay for leisure or business includes Paris , London , Manchester and Birmingham. How nice it would be if i am able to travel to all these places. Every city has its own attractions and every city will take me at least one week to slowly see all the attractions. There's the famous Eiffel tower in paris, London Bridge in london, man u in manchester, and the Birmingham art museum.

I would definitely want to visit all these places and more in europe. The experience would be wonderful.

If you are thinking of where to stay in all these cities, you can stay in

The Blue Man ~ Paul Karason

5 comments - Post a comment



Wonder if you have seen the story about "The Blue Man", the guy who according to the news became blue due to colloidal silver. To cut the long story short, it was a major disinformation produced by a PR firm and paid for by a pharmaceutical interest. The fact is that guy did consume silver but it was ionic silver or silver protein and NOT colloidal silver.

Any way, the main point is that we should not fully trust what's in the news to be the truth. It maybe true to a certain extend but there's usually a hidden agenda behind it. It may be the media manipulating the public or it may be the reporter having his own agenda. It could even be a miscommunication or a 1/2 truth. This just teaches us to take whatever we see on the news with a pinch of salt.

Then is colloidal silver really all that wonderful for you? Colloid means silver particles, not silver ions, so before you determine the usefulness of colloidal silver, you'll need to understand what is meant be colloid. If it's real colloidal silver then it's beneficial to you, else you'll just become Mr Blue.

NFR ~ Catch the cowboys and cowgirls in action!

4 comments - Post a comment



The National Finals Rodeo, organized by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association, is the premier championship rodeo event in the United States. The NFR is held every year in the first full week of December, at the Thomas & Mack Center on the campus of the University of Nevada in Las Vegas, Nevada.

It will definitely be an event worth waiting for as you imagine yourself sweating over the riders. There will be 8 champions waiting to be crown at the end of the NFR. The events are Bareback riding, Steer wrestling, Team roping, Saddle bronc riding, Tie-down roping, Bull riding, and Barrel racing (the only event exclusive to women). If you count properly, you will find that there's only 7 events. So where did the 8th champion came from? It's actually from the Team Roping event where, since 1995, the PRCA awards separate championships to the top "header" and "heeler".

In order to ensure you have the tickets to the WNFR Tickets, you'll need to book early to avoid any disappointment.

I would definitely want to attend this NFR as it's not everyday that we get to see people riding a horse or a bull. What we see everyday is just metal machines moving on the road. We have totally lost touch with nature. The NFR will be one of the few opportunities where we'll have a chance to be close to nature and feel the excitement at the same time.

I wonder if you are feeling the same way as i do but even if you are not a nature person, it's great to be in a competitive atmosphere where the audience cheers for the participants. The feeling and experience you get live in the stadium is totally amazing.

Ikariam ~ A online graphical strategy game

1 comments - Post a comment



I was introduced to a nice online game at www.ikariam.com which is a time-based strategy game which is very graphical. Normally online web-based games are text based with lots of figures and texts but very little picture. ikariam is very different; not only is it very graphical, there's quite a lot of things you can do in the game. You'll have to determine how much gold or wood you want. Then, you'll have to decide what to research and how much to spend on research. It's really an interesting strategy game as you try different configuration to achieve maximum growth in the fastest time.

Once you are ready, you'll be able to attack other online users to pillage their resources and grow even quicker. However, you'll have to strive to achieve another balance between attack and defense.

Overall, it's an interesting game to try and it won't take up too much of your time as you'll just have to click some pictures to get growing while you wait for the research or attack to be completed.

IVF1 is an in vitro fertilization and PGD (pre-implantation genetic diagnosis) center located in Chicago and Naperville, Illinois. Fertility specialist, Dr. Randy Morris, helps couples understand and resolve infertility issues.

The technique of in vitro is the technique of performing a given experiment in a controlled environment outside of a living organism. This lead to IVF which as describe in wiki as:

In vitro fertilization[1] (IVF) is a technique in which egg cells are fertilised by sperm outside the woman's womb, in vitro. IVF is a major treatment in infertility when other methods of assisted reproductive technology have failed. The process involves hormonally controlling the ovulatory process, removing ova (eggs) from the woman's ovaries and letting sperm fertilise them in a fluid medium. The fertilised egg (zygote) is then transferred to the patient's uterus with the intent to establish a successful pregnancy.


This technique offers women a chance at pregnancy where there wasn't any in the past. It's a really great discovery and childless couple now has one more hope of having a baby.

I shifted to my university hostel, and overseas for an exchange programme. Everytime, it's a pain as i pack my stuff into several bags and moving the heavy bags is another problem. If you move interstate, that's an even bigger problem as you'll need to transport your stuff over huge distances.

There's help now! Relocation.com offers careful moving of your stuff from your home to another place. You can get a quote from them by letting them know how much stuff you are shifting and where you are shifting.

As i was site hopping, i came across a pretty interesting experiment. A millionbloglist.com aims to find out how long it takes for 1,000,000 blog to get listed on the site. The site uses the wiki template and code to allow blog owners to add their blogs to the wiki. I am #706

I guessed that it will take between 1 - 3 months to complete this goal. As the site was started on 10 Apr, and there's 706 blogs added in just 10 days, going at the same rate, it will take a few months. However, as more of readers of the blog listed add their own blog to the list. The exponential growth rate will possible enable the site to meets its target in 1 - 3 months time.

Making money with bux.to

No Comment - Post a comment



While surfing the net, i came across another website's attempt to monetize the internet. They are offering $0.01 for viewing advertisers website for 30 seconds. Advertisers are charged $19.10 for 1000 views. So, the site is earning $0.0191 per view. Subtracting the $0.01 they are give you, the site is actually earning $0.0091. Wait a minute! How about referrals? For each referrals viewing the 30s site, they are paying an additional $0.01. So effectively, for each view, the website is paying $0.02; subtracting the $0.0191 per view, the site is making a loss of $0.0009.

There's also the premium membership @ $59 per year. With a guaranteed 20 ads per day, $0.25/pay times 365 days gives you, $91.25. Thus, if you click everyday, you will get back $32.25. A pretty low return isn't it. The amount will increase exponential if your referrals are increasing exponentially. Hmm .. can the site survive?

Probably, the site is earning from some other tie-up with alertpay. The referral program from alerypay is paying up to $10 for referrals who transacts(sending/receiving) $250 online. So probably, bux.to is waiting for their members to transact up to $250 to get the $10 referrals. Now, that would be a substantial amount that could cover the $0.0009 loss per page view.

The selling of unrefereed members could also be earning the site money. These members might or might not be surfing the ads. Thus, the risks is transfered to the buyers. If they are active members, the buyer will rejoice but if they are not. The buyers could only bang their head.

Probably, the site is surviving in the short term as since they are paying you $0.01 for 30s of your time. I think it's pretty worthwhile to sign up for it and refer to your friends.

You can sign up for it @ www.bux.to and let me take an extra $0.01 from the site.

The huge Atlanta Underground also provides an endless shopping opportunities. The food court there also let you sample their food which is a pretty nice way of marketing their food. There's also Domino Pizza in Atlanta and the pizzas there are cheap and good.

What does it mean to lead? John C. Maxwell describe leadership as the amount of influence you have. The more influence you have, the better your leadership quality. I truly agree with his idea as being a good leader means you need to be influential. The people you lead must be willing to be lead by you. So why should any one be willing to follow you?

That's what we have to learn. How to get people to follow you?? The most important way is to read up books on leadership and think through how you can make use of the ideas found in the books and turn yourself into an influential person.

Game for a game?

How long has it been since your last game? I haven't had my dose of games for quite some time. All my time have been spent on this blog or at work. Games like backgammon or blackjack has now become foreign to me.

If you are really into the game, you will definitely be reading the news about the game. In case you have not been reading, let me update you on some of them. One of the backgammon Masters is applying for Guinness Gamer World Record in Farthest Backgammon Dice Toss. I wonder if he can really do it. But i do hope he does and his name will then be recorded in the record.

Do you also want to have your name listed in the record? Any way, there's so many name inside the record that i think it's no longer a special privilege to be recorded. I think the status of the record has diminished over the years. There's too many no. 1 to remember.

Any way back to backgammon is really a game of strategy and memory. Basing on the initial dice roll, you can memorize the best moves for the roll and use it as your first move. Having a good start really helps a lot in backgammon.

Blackjack on the other hand is a bit more reliant on luck. However, some have manage to memorize the cards and thus able to guess which card is next and thus can make better informed choices to stand, hit or double.

Any way, enjoy a few games of backgammon and blackjack will make your life more interesting.

Then how does all the problems come about? I think they come about because of other problems. In this complex world of ours, everything is interconnected. Every solution will bring about some problems which will be resolved by other solutions.

Thought of the day~ A book a day keeps brain degeneration away

93 comments - Post a comment



We must learn to learn everyday. In this rapidly developing world, there's a constant need to keep improving yourself in order to keep pace with society. The minute you slow down and stop learning, you will find that the rest of society will speed past you leaving you way behind.

In order to constantly improve yourself, you will need to read. Constant reading will keep the brain working and prevent degeneration. Reading will also increase your knowledge and enable you to perform more efficiently and effectively.

The books you need to read are those books that improve your better skills. I believe that it's better to work on your good areas to make them the best instead of working on your poorer skills to make them better. The former will make you the best in your field while the latter will only make you better in your poorer ability.

Think about it. Do you want to be the best or do you want to be the normal person?

To rent or to buy?

1 comments - Post a comment



Ever thought of buying or renting a DVD but ended up not watching at all? It's a very common problem. The cost of renting a DVD sometimes most of the time does not warrants a purchase of the same DVD. However, in some cases, renting the DVD might cost more than buying one.

This will happen when you rent the DVD for more than a certain number of days. Company usually charge by day and thus, the longer the rent a DVD the higher the cost of rental. If you plot a graph, you'll see that there's a point when the rental and purchase cost the same. After this point, the purchase price will be stagnant while the rental price keeps increasing by the day.

Thus, if you really want to save some money. You should only rental if you intend to only watch the DVD once. Otherwise, it will be cheaper to just buy the DVD and watch in the comfort of your own house.

Articles paid or free?

2 comments - Post a comment



How do you like your articles done? Paid or free? I personally prefers them free rather than paid. Any way, netizens are used to free things. Free emails accounts, free web hosting, free short domain, everything free, everybody likes. The same goes for articles, everybody likes them free.

However, most of the free articles lack depth and in-sights. They are written just to publicize the author. Thus, the more articles written, the better outreach of the author. It basically the law of probability. The more articles written, the higher the probability of anyone reading one of the works. Thus, reaching more people.

Thus, paid articles are still very sought after as the author puts in time and effort and expects to be renumerated for the hardwork.

Employee who blogs are actually contributing to the good of society by providing quality blog entries and informing the world about what's going on.

With the interconnectivity, it's no secret that blogs are fast becoming the main stream mass communication means. News spread through blogs like fire blaze through forest. I foresee that newspaper will no longer be printed but will be spread through blogs.

Setting up a physical shop?

2 comments - Post a comment



Guess why i need to include the word "physical" in my blog title? I think you would have guessed it if you are reading this post. Yes! You are right! You and Me, we are both internet savvy and if i just said setting up a shop, you would probably be thinking of an online shop or a ebay shop or maybe an amazon shop.

Thus, i really need to include the word physical in my post! Although the internet is ever popular and online shop are sprouting our every seconds, the good old physical shop is still going strong, as we really want to feel some goods before we actually buys them. What's the most important thing in the physical shop? I would think it is the POS system. Only with this system can you sell and keep track of your stocks and finance properly.

There really isn't any need to buy new one as a Refurbished point of sale does the same job for a cheaper price. By the time you machine life is over, it's about time you upgrade to a better machine due to expansion.

Therefore, refurbished pos is really the way to go for your new business. With a lower startup cost, you can reach your break even point faster. One of the brand you should look out for is ibm surepos pos which is a better pos for your business.

The latest craze, spreeing in Singapore

1 comments - Post a comment



It's interesting to see how spreeing has become so popular in Singapore. However, if you look at the geographical details of Singapore, you will understand why spreeing is so popular. Due to the limited land size, Singapore's populations need to look overseas for the best deals. Having broadband access to the Internet, enables them to quickly source the best deal on the internet.

However, international shipping rates are extremely high and thus, the idea of spreeing was born. Grouping together to share the shipping costs really brings down the total cost of the item. The basis of spree lies on the trust with the organiser. The organiser of the spree will make orders on behalf of the participants after they make payments. Thus, there isn't any gurantee that the organiser will really deliver your goods after you made payments.

So, how can you make sure that you will definitely get your goods after making payments? You'll need to do some research and look at reviews of the organiser. From there, you'll be able to make informed decision on which organiser to go to. There's definitely be more than one organiser for a particular brand.

One such directory that tries to list all the available spree site can be found @ http://www.sgspree.biz The site is based on wordpress with the ability to review listed spree organiser through the comments system.

With these reviews and ratings, you'll be able to know which organiser is good and which organiser is not so good.

From my feedjit widget, i came across quite a few traffic coming from http://www.powerdropping.com i had no idea why there are traffic coming from this site and i don't remember adding my blog to the site. Maybe i have have included it but forgotten about it. Anyway, i am glad and very happy that i am getting quite a bit of traffic from www.powerdropping.com and thus, i feel that it is right that i write a post about them. :)

Although the layout of the site is very simple. It performs it's role and purpose as a traffic generator very well. How else will my feedjit widget reports traffic coming from powerdropping.com :P

After reading more, i found out that the owner was the one who took the trouble of looking at all the 4000+ blogs in entrecard and generating the list on the site. He must be very patient to perform this feat. I would have run out of gas at the 100th blog.

Thank www.powerdropping.com for bringing traffic to my site!

Remember my previous post about facebook app? I wanted to get started in creating one but it didn't happen. The only app i did was the tutorial demo application which is a very simple "Hello World" application.

There's so many things facebook api can do but there's not much idea i can come up with to build an app. I wonder how others came up with so many innovative ideas. How should i get started in generating ideas?

Maybe i should start a post on ideas. Maybe that'll work. :P

The design of your website makes or breaks your site

2 comments - Post a comment



Seriously, the very first impression of your website lasts very long and determines if you will ever get a repeat visit. But what exactly does the web browsers see first? Using HTTP protocol the website will be sent to your web browser which will interpret the code and display accordingly. Thus, having a good design doesn't mean anything unless your visitor browsers can support your code and display correctly. Otherwise, what you are seeing on your computer, may not be the same as what your visitor sees.

Furthermore, when there's so many different resolutions available for your visitor to choose, their resolution may not be the same as your working resolutions and thus, you will need to test your website on a few resolution to ensure that it still looks good. To make matter worst, there's normal screen and wide screen, CRT and LCD. Arrhhhh... how can your site design be good?

The only thing you can do is to get your friends to help you look at your site from their own computers. If they find it ok, then most probably your site is ok. Any way, think of looking good for 80% of your visitors. The 80 - 20 rules does apply here as well.

You'll only need to do 20% work to make your site good for 80% of your visitor.

Website Directory in a Niche Market

1 comments - Post a comment



How can you start a website directory in a niche market? I have been exploring this question for quite a while. In this world of the internet, everything under the sky can be found on the internet. Google.com being one of the most popular search engine in the internet is highly utilize but highly general.

However, the english language is a special language. A word or phrase in different context would have entirely different meanings. Thus, searching for something can be agonizing in google. In addition, some words are location bias and thus, different location entails different meaning for the same word.

Thus, i think that's a market for contextual search facilities. The result will be bias towards your desire instead of returning what google thinks is popular and thus you should be looking for it as well.

However, there's always limitation to this approach as it's very tedious to sort out the massive amount of information on the internet to view only the relevant one.

Real Estate Crisis? Maybe not!

2 comments - Post a comment



Although the whole world is thinking that the real estate market in us will crash, i beg to differ. There's a saying in the stock market that the best time to get into the market is when the rest is going out. Now that everyone is out of the real estate market, it's now time to enter the market and go for a bargain shopping grabbing all the sales items.

While you are looking at great property at discounted price, you must keep in mind that you need a lawyer to settle all the legal stuff for you. You can look at philadelphia lawyers to assist you. If you think you can DIY, you should think again. The knowledge and experience of the lawyers are what you do not have. They are doing it daily in a professional way while you are only doing it once in a while. The time and effort you put in to do the same job will be much more than what the lawyers need. Thus, spend some money and leave the work to the experts.

They also provide many services to help you in your injuries claims, auto accident, medical malpractise. If you need additional help, you can just always discuss with them. Help is just a phone call away.

There's too much things we need to know in this complicated world that we can't possibly know all of them. Thus, we always need to exchange money for knowledge and expertise. Everyone is best in their own field, you just need to hunt for the right person to get the best value for money.

Facebook money making ideas?

No Comment - Post a comment



How do you make money from facebook? There's so many idea for facebook apps and they are all free. So why should anybody pay for facebook app when there's free apps around??

I have been thinking about this for a while and there's a few ways i thought of. One would be to offer premium paid services on top of basic free services. There will definitely be some who prefers premium services and is willing to pay for it

Another method would be through advertising on your facebook apps. Putting some ads there will generate some income base on PPC or PPV. However, people don't usually click on ads and thus, the income would be quite low.

If you have any methods to share, do feel free to left a comment and maybe we can collaborate and work toward a common goal.

Where do you get the best domain??

I just purchased a domain package from some other website at about US$70 per year, and I thought it was the best one I could find after looking at google for half a day. The list of domain provider goes on and on but the cheapest i can find is US$70. One day after, this website http://www.paylessdomains.com.au was introduced to me and it provides domain from US$11.95 per year. Along with every domain registration, some free stuffs listed below are provided.

24/7 Customer Support
FREE Email Hosting
FREE URL Forwarding
FREE Management Tools
FREE Domain Name Parking
FREE Member Account
FREE Renewal Reminders
FAST Domain Approval

Almost the same service as what I purchased. Now you can imagine how stupid I found I was. Luckily I still have some extra cash in hand, and I intended to buy another domain here since it’s so cheap. During domain registration
through, http://www.paylessdomains.com.au/g/25076/register-a-domain-name.html, paylessdomains website will tell you which domain name is already taken, and best part is it will suggest some similar available names and if you buy more, discounts are available to you too. After registration, you just follow instructions, step by step, such as

Which are pretty convenient to use.

So, if you wish to purchase a domain, do consider this website because it’s cheap and good.

Running out of ideas to blog?

Ever heard of writers' block? Every writer encounter this blocking every now and then where creative juices runs dry and there's nothing to write about. However, with blogging, even without ideas, you can still blog. Cause you can talk about why you are having this block, like now.

I have no idea what to write before i begin this post and thus, this idea came into my head. To talk about writer's block. Usually writers overcome it by visiting new places, and experiencing new things. Blogger on the other hand does it by blogging about writer's block. Interesting, isn't it?

Just by writing about writer's block, i can add another 100 words to my list of posts. That's the benefit of blogging. The ability to write about the inability to write. :)
