How to Create Stunning Websites With Ajax

How to Create Stunning Websites With Ajax

Ajax, refers to a set of techniques, which are used for creating interactive exciting web applications. With its increased usage, there has been a rise in interactive animation on the web. It has also been instrumental in improving the quality of web services by way of asynchronous mode (instant fetching without page refreshing). It is also an interesting feature that despite the name (AJAX), JavaScript as well as XML does not have to be used - AJAX as such is a general term for all things funky and exciting in next generation web design


These days, a number of ajax applications are used for the purpose of creating draggable content boxes, creating a poll, creating tables which can be resized, adding file upload to the site, flashy pop up boxes, slick image galleries, as well as dynamically loaded content. Ajax can are be used for designing tooltips for a site, pasting Google Maps on a web page, loading the next page without changing the URL or refreshing, adding page transitions to the site, as well as calendars.


An interesting feature of this tool is that just like DHTML and LAMP, it is not at all an individual technology itself. The tool makes use of HTML and CSS in styling information, as well as marking up. Similarly, DOM as well as JavaScript is used for dynamic display as well as interaction with the information. The tool exchanges asynchronous data in between the browser as well as the server, which assists in avoiding page, reloads.


An Ajax framework refers to a framework, used for the purpose of development of web applications. In certain cases, processing at the server might need to handle requests, which becomes much easier with a framework for processing requests. As it is, ajax is all set to conquer the world and play a more vital role in web technologies in the future.

ASP.NET MVC Hosting :: Create ASP.NET MVC Localization with Language Detection

ASP.NET MVC Hosting :: Create ASP.NET MVC Localization with Language Detection

Introduction

In this tutorial we will show a simple way to create localization (globalization) for web application using APS.NET MVC framework. It should work fine with MVC 1 and 2 and we're currently using .NET 3.5 SP1, but .NET 4.0 will work as well. All code is in C# and for language translations we use XML files.

Language files with XML

For translations of different languages we use simple xml files. We store them in App_Data/messages/.xml, for example en-US.xml or de-DE.xml. Here is the xml structure:


  Home
  Products
  Services


You should have identical language files for all desired languages. All translation items should be the same (with equal "key" attributes).

Create Translator class

Main translation work will be done by Translator singleton class. Create "Infrastructure" folder in your MVC project and put class Translator there.
First, let's make class singleton:


private static Translator instance = null;
public static Translator Instance
{
get
{
  if (instance == null)
  {
instance = new Translator();
  }
  return instance;
}
}
private Translator() { }

Add the following fields and properties to the class:


private static string[] cultures = { "en-US", "bg-BG" };
private string locale = string.Empty;


public string Locale
{
get
{
  if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(locale))
  {
throw new Exception("Locale not set");
  }
  else
  {
return locale;
  }
}
set
{
  if (Cultures.Contains(value))
  {
locale = value;
load();
  }
  else
  {
   throw new Exception("Invalid locale");
  }
}
}


public static string[] Cultures
{
get
{
  return cultures;
}
}


Field "cultures" lists available cultures. "Locale" keeps current culture. And in "set" part of Locale property you can see invocation of load() method. We will talk about it later.
To keep localization data I will create simple dictionary and then use keys from XML for dictionary keys and XML item values as dictionary values. Simple Translate method will do translation job. We have indexer method for easy access.


private Dictionary data = null;


public string Translate(string key)
{
if (data != null && data.ContainsKey(key))
{
  return data[key];
}
else
{
  return ":" + key + ":";
}
}


public string this[string key]
{
get
{
  return Translate(key);
}
}

If some key cannot be found and translated, we return the key with ":" around it, so you can easy find untranslated items.
Finally, for loading XML we use LINQ to XML. we have static caching dictionary, so I don't need reading XML on every request.


private static Dictionary> cache =
  new Dictionary>();


private void load()
{
if (cache.ContainsKey(locale) == false) // CACHE MISS !
{
  var doc = XDocument.Load(
HttpContext.Current.Server.MapPath(
"~/App_Data/messages/" + locale + ".xml"));


  cache[locale] = (from item in doc.Descendants("item")
where item.Attribute("key") != null
select new
{
  Key = item.Attribute("key").Value,
 Data = item.Value,
}).ToDictionary(i => i.Key, i => i.Data);
}


data = cache[locale];
}


public static void ClearCache()
{
cache = new Dictionary>();
}

You can use translator in your controller like this:
Translator.Instance[key];
After load() methid we have ClearCache method for easy developing (you know, once read, data is cached and you have to restart IIS Application Pool to refresh localization data).
Translator class is ready, we will show you how to use it later.

Create localization helpers

Create static class LocalizationHelpers and put it in "Helpers" folder in your project.


public static string CurrentCulture(this HtmlHelper html)
{
return Translator.Instance.Locale;
}


public static string T(this HtmlHelper html, string key)
{
return html.Encode(Translator.Instance[key]);
}


public static string T(this HtmlHelper html, string key,
params object[] args)
{
return html.Encode(string.Format(
  Translator.Instance[key], args));
}


We will use this in html views for translation like this




If you want params in translated values you can use second T implementation like string.Format. First helper CurrentCulture is used in language select user control to determine current culture.

Create BaseController class

Create BaseController class that extends Controller and put it in "Infrastructure" folder of your MVC project. You should extend all your controller classes from this class. Create simple property for current selected culture (locale)


public string CurrentCulture
{
get
{
  return Translator.Instance.Locale;
}
}

You will use this in your controller when you initialize your model, for example.
In the following code I will explain language detection and saving with cookie.


private void initCulture(RequestContext requestContext)
{
string cultureCode = getCulture(requestContext.HttpContext);


requestContext.HttpContext.Response.Cookies.Add(
  new HttpCookie("Culture", cultureCode)
  {
Expires = DateTime.Now.AddYears(1),
HttpOnly = true,
  }
);


Translator.Instance.Locale = cultureCode;


CultureInfo culture = new CultureInfo(cultureCode);
System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = culture;
System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentUICulture = culture;
}


private string getCulture(HttpContextBase context)
{
string code = getCookieCulture(context);


if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(code))
{
  code = getCountryCulture(context);
 }


return code;
}


private string getCookieCulture(HttpContextBase context)
{
HttpCookie cookie = context.Request.Cookies["Culture"];


if (cookie == null || string.IsNullOrEmpty(cookie.Value) ||
!Translator.Cultures.Contains(cookie.Value))
{
  return string.Empty;
}


return cookie.Value;
}


private string getCountryCulture(HttpContextBase context)
{
// some GeoIp magic here
return "en-US";
}


First we try to get language cookie if there is any (if this is not first time visit). If there is no cookie you can detect browser language, make GeoIP IP address lookup and so on. After finding some valid locale/culture we set response cookie for next page visits. After this we change current thread culture. This is useful if you want to format some date or currency values.
You should call initCulture in overridden Initialize method.

Changes in HomeController

Don't forget to change parent class of all your controller to BaseController. Add following code to your HomeController, so you can change current culture. When you open specified URL, a cookie is set and user is redirected to index page. This URL is like example.com/home/culture/en-US. Clear cache method is for deleting current cache without restarting application pool. Access it with example.com/home/ClearLanguageCache


public ActionResult Culture(string id)
{
HttpCookie cookie = Request.Cookies["Culture"];
cookie.Value = id;
cookie.Expires = DateTime.Now.AddYears(1);
Response.SetCookie(cookie);


return Redirect("/");
}


public ActionResult ClearLanguageCache(string id)
{
Translator.ClearCache();


return Redirect("/");
}

To change current language we will create special user control which will be included in may Master.Site layout. Create CultureUserControl.ascx and put it in Views/Shared/ folder of your MVC project. Here is the code:




en

bg


In our layout we use to include it.

Conclusion

In this simple tutorial we've created localization infrastructure for ASP.NET MVC web application. Translations of different languages are stored in XML files. Then we use Translator class to load them. Current user culture is kept in cookie. You can access Translator class in html views using some helpers. Also all the translation data we cached so it will not be loaded form XML every request.
Hope this tutorial helps.

How to Create a Guitar Solo

How to Create a Guitar Solo
How to Create a Guitar Solo - Important Tips

The key factor that an acoustic guitarist should remember while creating a guitar solo is ‘how to play the solo’ instead of ‘what solo to play’. Many a times there is nothing wrong with the way many guitarists play their solos. The only things they lack are certain key elements of solo playing. As a result their solos don’t seem to attract the audience. In this regard, certain valuable tips are enlisted that will assist you to know how to create a guitar solo.


Guitar phrasing


This is one of the most important elements in any guitar solo that most acoustic guitarists tend to overlook. A proper guitar phrasing can do a world of good to your solos. As such you need to master guitar phrasing at any cost if you really want to be a professional solo guitarist. One of the best ways of mastering phrasing is by carefully studying your professional singers’ solo performances. Watch them playing their solos and observe how professionally they execute guitar phrasing i.e. how they play their notes and phrases. This will help you grasp certain valuable inputs and phrasing techniques.


Bending notes


Movement between notes is quite essential in case of solos. Singers can bend notes in both directions. However, most of the acoustic guitarists prefer to bend notes ‘down’. However, for an effective solo performance you also need to bend notes ’up’.


Delaying vibrato



Another most common practice that most guitar solo players end up doing is starting to apply vibrato as soon as they begin their notes. Though there is nothing wrong in it, but this trend has become quite a norm. Most professional guitarists, on the other hand, prefer to apply vibrato only after a few minutes of beginning their notes. This is quite effective and you can also follow suite in your solos.


Avoid manipulation of expressions


Another important thing to remember is to avoid manipulating emotional expressions from before hand, during your solos performances. Instead you must try to execute your expressions on the basis of each note that you play.


These tips regarding how to create a guitar solo will help to make your solo performance a success. So consider them seriously and try to improvise on them accordingly.

Hire PHP web developer to create amazing and interactive sites

Hire PHP web developer to create amazing and interactive sites


The Indian market in terms of manpower and technical expertise is huge and one need not struggle getting a deal that will be less than half the cost when compared to other offshore developers. Indian developers are skilled in PHP coding and can necessarily mingle it with other web application softwares like LAMP, Linux, Ajax, Flash and many others. For a real time environment the web pages need to be heavily coded but it should also be kept in mind that more the complexity of the script, the longer it will take for the page to load. Slow sites will dissuade visitors and there are several competitors who will step ahead you. Innovation and effective designing is the key and no one knows it better that the Indian minds.


The PHP programmer rates for the Indian professionals too are extremely low. This is in response to the high manpower and limited number of projects (not less though in any way). Obviously contractors and traders will choose the companies and professionals who can do the job at the lowest rates. Cost cutting is the main component of any business. This is the reason why so much offshore business is provided to Indian professionals. A good PHP programmer would know your requirements exactly and will ask to be guided the whole way till you are satisfied. To create an environment exactly the way you want needs a lot of skill and precision. Also PHP is the easiest among all softwares that exist for creating web businesses. Every step you are taking is for the customer and they will not stop criticizing if they find a si9ngle fallacy. Hire PHP developer, India who can guarantee you the success and has a proven track record in the form of an interesting bio data. The rates will definitely be the best.


One need not have a separate department for web development if they want to have a good web presence, freelance developers from the global market and several contracting companies can help with already established skills and innovation. Companies even hire PHP web developers who even have pre-designed templates with them which you can readily ask to edit and put up in the web sphere. With the world becoming a platform for business you need not really worry about the quality and price that you can get around. Just post a project of visit the various offshore companies who take overseas projects gladly.

How to Create a Team

How to Create a Team

Members of any group will develop, over time, different modes of interaction. As in any organization there are many groups. Stages of the construction of a working team:


-the construction: Since the first moments in which the group is formed, its members begin to familiarize with each other. This period is one in which relationships are build with knowledge and explanation of the situation. Often this period is characterized by uncertainty due to the fact that individuals do not have sufficient information about each other. For this reason, the leader will have to intervene and decide all these uncertainties that may occur.


-the tension: This period is characterized by relatively large number of conflicts and tense moments generated by misunderstanding or questions, despite the fact that group members feel more secure than in the first stage. Unit group is still not consolidated because their members have not yet clarified the roles that they have met. The leaders are the ones that are designed to generate a good mood inside the group. The members are encouraged to communicate, and to decide issues, to understand the real situation and most importantly, to mobilize to achieve its objectives. Leader with the ability to determine these actions can be an advantage of the strategists.


-the normal stage: This period is installed immediately after the roles are well established and accepted by all members and the previous problems have been cleared. In this stage the team is formatted


-action: Represents the period in which one becomes mature and is focused on achieving goals and solve the challenges faced. He is able to perform complex tasks and work to resolve internal disagreements in creatively. In this stage the members know each other and previous issues have been resolved, the atmosphere is relaxed and interactive.


-the dissolution: This stage is not present in all groups. Some groups are formed specifically for the fulfillment of tasks in a limited time. Is important for the group members to have the ability to quickly assemble team for a clearly specified objective, to dissolve soon after reaching it and to be able to form a new team if necessary.

The Internet Marketer - The One Thing You Need To Create Passive Income and Earn Money Online - Pt 8

The Internet Marketer - The One Thing You Need To Create Passive Income and Earn Money Online - Pt 8

On our journey to become an internet marketer, so far we have explored the concept of niches, keywords and how they relate to the information people are searching for and I have shown some free, useful tools to explore the demographics of the buyers for that market. Put simply:
1/ Find a market that has buyers who are willing to buy to satisfy their needs.
2/ Know just who your buyers are. Age, income, education, interests.
3/ Create and/or promote a product which fills one or more of the needs of those buyers.


In this article we will be looking at two more ways to gauge interest in a niche. Just as computer memory is expanding exponentially, so are the possibilities of the internet. These changes occur every day and they are distracting from the focus to earn money online. Which is not to say that we should ignore the advances that are being made, but rather that we should be aware that not every new bright bauble is absolutely essential to our quest.


I have spoken previously about the many emails which find their way to your inbox once you commence to show an interest in making money online. Suddenly, offers of new, must have ebooks, software, concepts and loopholes appear like clockwork in your inbox. My advice is to find one person you find interesting and has a good reputation and receive his emails. Unsubscribe from everyone else. Believe me, if something revolutionary appears, you will hear about it.


These emails often set off an autoresponder series which sends you emails every few days. There is a marketing saying that the sale is not made until the seventh offer. Autoresponders are one of the ten or so major developments in the actual business of selling something to somebody in the last ten years. They allow marketers to present their offers to their double opt-in list over and over again. Without a doubt, emails to a targeted list, sell. So much so that it becomes statistically useful to work out how much each name on your list is worth each month. That reliable!


Like memory, emails have exploded exponentially. Seemingly an allegory to the old saying that "work expands to fill the time available".


Just quickly, there have only been around a dozen or so revolutionary developments in internet selling in the last ten years. In no particular order:
1/ Autoresponders.
2/ Online auctions, especially eBay.
3/ Paypal.
4/ Pay Per Click advertising.
5/ The rise of social networking such as Facebook and Twitter and their siblings.
6/ Blogs.
7/ DIY websites and shopping carts.
8/ Live chat.
9/ Streaming audio and video.


There may be others, but , whatever.


To further research into the market activity of a niche. Go to Amazon. Choose "books' from the drop-down menu and type in your niche and search. Check the number of results. Greater than 150 is encouraging. There is considerable activity in this niche. Now choose "movies and TV" from the drop-down menu. Once again check the number of results. More than 25 is good. If the niche meets either of these criteria, then people are interested.


One further site that gives an excellent indication of the activity and actual buying within a niche is eBay. To be banal, people are buying and selling on ebay all the time! What better place to use to gauge activity and competition? The difference is that this time we are going to type in a far more generic niche to get the most related results. So if your niche is mp3 meditation downloads, start with meditation to get a feel of what the market is offering and, most importantly, buying.


In the left hand pane of the screen, scroll down from "refine search" and click on "All categories". This will show you how many books, dvds, movies, television and downloads relate to your niche. Now go to sales and type in "completed sales" and scan down the list of completed sales for products relating to your niche. You can swiftly gauge how many sales are being made, what is selling and for how much! This sort of information is priceless, and crucial, when you begin selling or promoting your products.


Spend some time playing with these tools and analyzing the results to further refine your decision on what you are creating or promoting. Taking action is essential for the internet marketer. You cannot follow a plan without taking action. Without action you are just reading a novel and imagining being able to earn money online.


You need a plan to achieve your purpose. You need to take action on that plan. Get a plan. Follow it. 


Kindness is more important than wisdom.

How to Create Great Headlines

How to Create Great Headlines

For the longest century, advertising has been the most used way of informing and persuading the people. It has been the art of informing and persuading people through the use of media. As technology surges, the power of advertising also grew. There came a new advent of new media paralleling the achievements of the traditional ones. What came out is the rampant bombardment of information. With this, people became too lame to absorb all the information that surrounds them. They would only absorb those that are important and they need, especially as consumers. Then, there sprung the power of a good content writer. If a content writer is asked, what do you first consider so that what you write will be read? For sure, he/she will answer a very short but true answer: create great headline


The writer carries the burden on how to create great headline for people to stop for a while and read what the he wants to say. Thus, headlines should be given greater consideration above all if you are content writer. But how will people read all the contents if they are not attracted by the headline, right? Headlines are mainly there to catch the attention of the prospective audience and to lure your target audience to read the rest of the ad. If there are show-stoppers on stage, headlines should also be like show-stopper that would catch the attention of an audience in the most unlikely circumstance and the most unlikely manner. It should arouse a need for the audience to read further the ad. If this happens, the way you create great headline is a effective. The most common of these headlines contains the words FREE.., TIRED OF...?, YOU CAN..., FINALLY..., and the like. These have been used for the past years and it did work. But in our new generation headlines are basically transformed into news type that of Cosmo and the Enquirer. These headline-containing magazines will surely radiate a need for people to crave for more. One will notice that once they are caught in the labyrinth of the ideas that the headline has, they are more likely to plunge themselves more on it. This is the essence of why you should create great headline.


In the business arena, a business will create great headline that would speak on behalf of them and that arouse a need for pre-selected audiences to be informed and later on be persuaded. One can do this by coming up with what the company stands for and translate it into words. Next, make the words work well with each other by considering the length and idea. Just keep it simple. But keep it meaningful also. For example, you are making a headline for a lotion that is protects the skin from the heat of the sun but also whitens the skin. When you have fair skin, you are said to be "in fashion," since you are endorsing a sun block lotion, use protection as its synonym. There you can have the headline: 'wear fashion, wear protection." With this headline, consumers are more likely read more of its feature because you gave a glimpse of its benefits without explicitly saying it.


As competition in the market rise, business must always take the initiative of bringing their products closer to its consumer. And the only way to do this is to use headlines. Not just headlines, but GREAT headlines.



Being able to create great headline will surely acquire you more customers. Tiphanie Ros's website will provide more effective tips and strategies on Internet marketing.

Absurd Ideas Create Success

Absurd Ideas Create Success

"If at first the idea is not absurd, then there is no hope for it." - Albert Einstein
 
I think we can all agree that Albert Einstein was a pretty smart guy and came up with some great ideas and concepts, but his quote above is also great advice to all of us in business. It's a quote that I have printed on my business card and something I embrace in creating new companies and products


A recession is a great opportunity to start a business and go out on your own, and there is an explosion of people doing just that. A huge number of Boomers, who have been thrown out of their corporate lives, think they will now become entrepreneurs and strike out on their own.  They think, "Hey, I spent 20 years in management of that corporation so I can certainly run my own little startup."


But hold on there, newbie. To be a successful entrepreneur, you may first have to retrain your brain. If you spent time at a large company in management, accounting, finance or general data control, you've been living in a left-brain world with left-brain thinking.


In a standard corporate environment, we often get stuck in logical, rational left-brain "linear thinking" following the same thought paths that the industry uses and we recognize as the norm.


That's not a necessarily a bad thing. For a big, stable company, it can be a good thing. It's a logical, secure path that we're comfortable with, but it does not inspire new ideas. You can't steer a giant battle ship on impulse - and you also can't turn one on a dime.


Right versus left is not just in politics.


A small startup is a different world that requires different thinking. In a new small business we begin to look at new and different ways to do our business. We must be creative, impulsive and move quickly to adapt to the constant changes that come with every new day. Your right brain is the creative side and must be activated and running on all cylinders so you don't get stuck on one idea or process.


Luke Mansfield, head of innovation in the London office of branding agency Landor Associates, points out that, "If your business has only one answer, or one definition of innovation, it's time to try something new. You will be amazed at the results."


Embrace the absurd! Many successful inventors, innovators, marketing and business people started out with what others considered an absurd, silly, can't-be-done idea. You know, the light bulb, wind-powered electrical generators, the list goes on throughout history.


I love kids. They are the greatest inventors.  I am always delighted by kids' boundless excitement and enthusiasm for life - and their wide imaginations. They have this uninhibited ability to think the absurd, imagine the undoable openly and without reservations.


But alas, they are then taught the linear thinking in a regimented world and join the rest of the dead heads.


We should never stop asking "What if?" and "Why not?" Be ABSURD, think crazy thoughts, have impossible ideas!


If you have or can capture that childlike absurd enthusiasm, don't let anyone cool you off or calm you down because you, my friend, are headed toward success. Just think, if Al had not thought the absurd, someone would have come up with E=ONICBD (oh never mind, it can't be done).

Create a Green Office

Create a Green Office

Creating an environmentally friendly workplace is an excellent investment, achieving significant operating cost reduction, building team spirit and creating a highly desirable employment environment. And we all know that when employee morale improves, turnover decreases and hiring and training costs decrease. Publicized effectively, environmental responsibility will also enhance marketplace image resulting in increased sales and profitability. Market your new green agenda. Employees and customers will be pleased to learn that you care about the environment and are doing your part.


Ten Ways to Improve Workplace Environmental Performance


1. Buy "green" products. Every day we find new, environmentally friendly products which use less materials, reduce waste and reduce energy use. We can choose compostable waste bags, biodegradable packing peanuts, non-toxic dry-erase markers, recycled plastic products, and more.


2. Use re-manufactured ink and toner cartridges. Remanufactured cartridges are 100% guaranteed and cost less than new cartridges. Each re-manufactured cartridge keeps approximately 2.5lbs of plastic and metal out of landfills and saves about 1/2 gallon of oil.


3. Recycle ink and toner cartridges. Approximately 375 million empty ink jet cartridges are taken to landfill sites every year. Recycling cartridges reduces landfill waste and associated toxins.


4. Use digital storage, not paper files. Print documents on paper when necessary but only when necessary. When hard-copy paper files are necessary, maintain a central file, avoiding individual, personal files.


5. Reduce, reuse and recycle paper. Treat paper as a scarce commodity. Communicate by email rather than creating written notes and faxing or mailing documents. When you must create a paper copy, print on both sides whenever you can, use it as scrap paper and finally recycle it when it can no longer be used or reused. Recycling one ton of paper saves 17 trees, almost 7,000 gallons of water and more than 3 cubic yards of landfill space.


6. Buy Energy Star qualified products. Energy Star printers, computers, fax machines, monitors and other office machines can reduce energy use by as much as 75%. Using "standby" or "sleep mode" when equipment is not in use will reduce energy use and improve the bottom line!


7. Unplug machines that are not in use. Most people are surprised to learn that equipment consumes electricity when plugged in-even when turned off. Use power strips for simplicity and turn them off at days-end and when you take trips.


8. Use compact fluorescent light bulbs. Compact fluorescent light bulbs can save up to 75% of the electricity used by incandescent light bulbs. Fluorescent bulbs last 10 times longer than incandescent light bulbs and they fit standard fixtures and deliver natural light.


9. Reduce transportation. Promote public transportation, carpooling and bicycle use by employees. Use teleconferencing or videoconferencing for meetings. Purchase from local suppliers.


10. After reducing your energy consumption as much as possible, consider purchasing an offset. Individuals and businesses can offset greenhouse gas emissions by purchasing carbon credits.

Create A Home Recycling Center

Create A Home Recycling Center

Just as we cannot blame others for destroying the environment, so we cannot look to others to protect the environment. Responsibility for both begins at home. ~Paul Griss, The Daily Planet

Step 1: Find out what is recycled in your area. Most places will recycle glass, aluminum, paper, cardboard, and plastic. Contact your local City Hall to find out what is available or at least be pointed in the right direction. Your city may also have a website with all the information you need.

Step 2: Decide how many containers you will need. This is directly related to the information you find in Step 1 and what will be easiest for you. For example, will you need/want to separate the #1 and #2 plastics?


Step 3: Find containers. You may already have containers that will work. If you have been clearing the clutter, you may find extra storage bins ready for a new purpose!: Your city may also provide bins specifically for their recycling program. Baskets also work nicely in the kitchen and office. So, just take a look around and see what you find.


Step 4: Make labels. Take all the guess work out of what can and can't be recycled by placing labels on each bin. The easiest way to make labels is to use a 8 1/2 X 11 piece of paper. Write the needed info and insert into a page protector. Tape the page protector to the bin with packing tape. This protects the label from weather if you leave it outside and it keeps the label from falling off.


Step 5: Create the space. The best place is typically the garage, but be open to see where that place is for you and your family. Make it as easy as possible to sort, take to the drop-off center, or haul to your curb. You will also want a space in the kitchen and office to initially collect items. This prevents recycling from taking over your kitchen counter as well as multiple trips to the main containers.


If this step seems overwhelming or intimidating, I suggest a couple of things. You can start with one or two recycle bins based on what you acquire most. You can also create more space by listing things on www.Freecycle.org. (You will read more about this in Step 8.)


Step 6: Establish a routine. As with everything, your routine has to be SIMPLE or it may not stick!


Here is my routine: I have a bin in my kitchen that catches 95% of all the recycling materials. I don't sort them here--they just get dumped in after they are rinsed and flattened. When it gets full, I take it to the garage and sort each item into the appropriate bins. (This is where the labels come in handy!) I do the same with my office basket which is typically paper, so it can normally be dumped into the Paper and Cardboard bin.


I also suggest writing the recycling pick-up or drop-off days in your calendar. Maybe you can designate each Friday as recycling day and take the items from the house to the garage. Or, you can make it the day before recycling is picked up. Once you get into a rhythm, it will naturally become part of your life.


Step 7: Be mindful when making future purchases.


You have heard of the 3 R's: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Notice Recycle is the last one mentioned. With mindful purchases you can focus on reducing the items needing recycled. So, on your future shopping trips, consider what products you are buying and how they are packaged. Go for bulk items you use on a regular basis. Another idea is to create a plan to take your own canvas bags to the store to reduce the need for paper and plastic bags.


Most of us are familiar with recycling and reusing, but how often do we think of the third R - REDUCE? 'Reduce' is probably the most important of the three Rs because, if we reduced, it would limit the need to recycle and reuse.(~Catherine Pulsifer, from The "Reduce" of Recycle and Reuse

Step 8: Use Freecycle.org. I love Freecycle! So far I have been able to find new homes for a broken guitar, wireless computer card, 2 toilets, a HUGE wall cabinet, blue tiles from our shower, and a cracked Pampered Chef baking stone. (Even with the crack someone wanted it!) If you haven't checked out www.Freecycle.org, you are missing out. This is fabulous for creating more space in your life and less waste in our landfills!


Happy Recycling!

Create an Inspired Life

Create an Inspired Life

Inspiration is often misconstrued as only being available to a few gifted individuals, and yet we refer to films or books as 'inspiring' or 'inspirational', which proves we all feel the effects of inspiration.


Wayne Dyer describes inspiration as being 'in spirit', which I interpret as being authentic and true to who you really are. When you feel inspired, you make choices about the things you do based on what makes you feel good rather than on the demands and expectations of others. When you're feeling good, you're a positive role model, encouraging others to feel good about themselves too.


Inspiration is like the eye of the hurricane. It's difficult to feel inspired when there's chaos all around you. You need to find calm. If you're looking for ideas, you may travel somewhere special to find inspiration - but inspiration doesn't come from your surroundings. It comes from the time you spend by yourself, with no distractions, immersed in - and yet separate from - a tranquil environment.


When you create an inspired life, you make conscious choices about the things you do, and about the way you feel when you're doing them. There are always going to be tasks which we find less pleasing than others. We then have the choice of whether to do them with grace, or stomp our feet and hold our breath hoping someone else will do them!


Inspiration is a catalyst which prompts you to do something you might not otherwise do.


In a seminar in London, Bob Proctor commented: "when you feel inspired, you don't need anyone to motivate you to get out of bed in the morning, because you can't wait to get started."


Think about a time when you were looking for a job, because you couldn't stand the one you were in. Did you find the jobs adverts inspiring, or was it difficult to motivate yourself to apply for them? You probably had to adopt a more positive attitude before you could feel inspired by other possibilities.


Inspiration is about feeling moved to do something, rather than looking for some thing to inspire you. Inspiration isn't passive. It's an active choice. First you have to make the decision to be inspired within the life you have, and then seek to change it for the better. Inspiration isn't 'out there', it's inside you. It's waiting for you to find it!

Create a Professional Portfolio

Create a Professional Portfolio

When putting your portfolio together make sure it represents your life's best work up until the current time. Give employers an insight into your work ethic and past experience. Employers like to see that you've put the effort into creating a professional portfolio to promote yourself. Follow these tips and you will be able to put together a great portfolio regardless of your profession.


Look for a good way to show off your portfolio. decide how you're going to display all your work. The majority of folks want to purchase a good looking binder made of quality material like leather. Find one in an appropriate size for the number of documents you want to include in your professional portfolio. (To learn about as many professional binders as possible, talk to people at your nearest office supply store.)


Get your information and documentation together in one place. You want to include documents that illustrate your accomplishments related to the job you're applying for, along with your overall work history. Find any training certificates, official qualifications, and yearly evaluations. Try to think of all the successful projects you were a part of, and anything else you are proud of.


In the case of a teacher, the professional portfolio you create can also include items related to your past teaching experience. A good way to begin is by sharing your educational approach. It's essentially your viewpoint about how student can and be supposed to be skilled in modern classrooms, and your approach to helping all students finds accomplishment. In summing up, put in a quantity of much loved lecture plans that in fact illustrate your instruction style. You might also put in examples of different work areas or bulletin boards from your classroom that illustrate your approach to teaching, as well as samples of student work. The idea is that the more you can include in your professional portfolio, the better.


Never forget to be confident in yourself. When you have a professional portfolio do not be too modest. You really need to show your talents and skills in order to get hired for the job! Talk about occasions when you've exceeded your expectations. Be prepared to relay a few of your proudest moments and accomplishments to those interviewing you.


Make sure you have your portfolio handy! Once you've created your professional portfolio, have it with you at all times. It may difficult to carry around all the time, but it is great for supporting your answers during an interview, and it will take the eyes off of you and put them onto your portfolio. Be sure to always keep your portfolio updated so it is always ready for new job opportunities.

How to Create a Coupon Offer

How to Create a Coupon Offer

When you begin the process of creating coupon offers for your business, the best place to start is by looking at existing coupons and particularly those of your competition. It is easy to find coupon offers, they are everywhere. Look in newspapers, magazines, stores, the mail, and even on calendars or local maps of the area. Find coupons you like and ask your self why you like them.


Here are 7 tips to help you make great coupon offers.


Tip #1: Find coupons that really stand out and have great offers.


Tip #2: Write down the way the offer was worded, including any disclaimers


Tip #3: If sent by the mail, did the envelope have any special wording that made you open the envelope. If so, make a note of the exact wording.


Tip #4: Ask yourself how you are going to create (AIDA) attention, interest, desire, and action ( the four principles of marketing) in your coupon offer.


Tip #5: Make sure that your offer includes something free, a discount, a deal, a trial offer, or an item that a prospect would not think of buying without your offer.


Tip #6: Think about what your prospective customer might want, and create your offer based on a specific benefit, need or desire.


Tip #7: Create several different coupons offers, distribute them, and keep track of the offers that were redeemed most. These are the ones to use over and over again.


You can look on the internet at various coupon sites and learn from others. Major corporations spend a great deal of time and money researching and surveying to determine which type of offers attract the most attention and boost the profit margin the most. Pay attention to these types of offers. And also pay attention to local businesses that always seem to be busy and look at their offers. It will help you get a feel for what coupon offers you should create for your own business.

Create an Abundance Mentality

Create an Abundance Mentality

A quick glance at the news these days, whether it be on the radio, TV or in the newspapers, and it is clear to see that our society at large has what I call a "lack" mentality, or a "scarcity" mentality.


That is, our focus is continually being drawn to what we don't have, or what we lack in some way, shape or form.


If you doubt this, just consider the stories which are making the news right now... The collapse of the sub-prime lending market globally, and the resulting credit squeeze in the UK. The stagnation in the housing market, with repossessions at an all time high. Wage demands in both public and private sectors being quashed and relative earnings declining as oil, gas and basic food commodity prices hit double digit growth. Jobs under threat as companies struggle to survive the economic downturn, and early retirees forced back into the workplace due to inadequate pension provisions.


But we were not born to be like this, or even to think like this. We were born with an abundance mentality - secure in the knowledge that we live in an abundant universe in which there is more than enough to go around, and where it is natural for us to achieve anything and everything we could wish for.


But somewhere along the way many of us lose this inborn feeling of security and we start to focus on all the things we don't have; all the things we lack, rather than the happy positive thoughts about the things we desire and believe we deserve. If "lack" mentality has crept into your thought processes in any way as you have progressed through your life, then I challenge you to break your state right now, and consider the possibility that you can live your life a different way.


Here is a simple, but very effective Life Coaching exercises for you to try called "Count your blessings"...


Each day before you become embroiled in the hectic business of daily life, take a few moments to mentally list and acknowledge the things in your life which bring you joy and for which you are truly grateful. The relationships you have with loved ones, for example, your fulfilling career, or your radiant health - whatever is appropriate for you, simply spend a few moments enjoying the gifts you have, rather than lamenting the things you don't.


And before you go to sleep each night, reflect on the day just gone and mentally replay all the good things that happened during the day, which brought you happiness and caused you to feel good about yourself and your life.


Remember, only YOU have the power to decide what you fill your mind with, and how you direct your thoughts...


Best wishes,

Create a Perfect After Dark Getaway

Create a Perfect After Dark Getaway

Since daylight hours are consumed with work, there is not much time left for swimming. That does not have to stop you from enjoying your pool. Adding pool lighting will expand your swimming time. By adding lights to your pool you will also create a beautiful addition to your garden. Your pool will no longer be a black void in the back yard once the sun goes down.


The type of pool that you have will govern what type of lights that are available to you. If you have a vinyl pool you are limited to surface lights. These lights are mounted to the side of the pool and will protrude some. The amount the light protrudes will depend on the brand of lights you choose. For Concrete or Fiberglass pool there are a few more options. You may choose the surface mounted lights or you can opt for flush mounted lights. Flush mounted lights are set into the side of the pool so that only the lens protrudes. It is always wise to consult with your pool specialist to help decide which lights are best for your pool.


Your next decision is what type of light source you want to use. The two most common types are Halogen and LED. Both typed will light are suitable for underwater lighting. That is where the similarities end. The LED light does on use a globe (or bulb) and does not require globe changing. The LED will last for long periods of time, but when the LED light does need to be changed the entire light must be changed. It takes very little energy to operate LED lights, which will save on power consumption. To know how long a LED light will last ask a lighting specialist or builder how many hours of burn time to expect.


Halogen lights on the other hand, will require globe changing. The halogen globe's life span is much shorter. The amount of time between globe changes will depend on the brand. Fortunately, only the globe will need to be changed. The disadvantage of halogen lights is that they use 75% more power than the LED lights.


Your lights must be water cooled at all times, meaning that they must stay submerged to avoid damage. Make sure that the lights are positioned properly. They need to be easily accessible for maintenance. The recommended depth is between 300-400mm below the coping. Burn your pool lights at least 15 minutes per week to remove excess moisture and increase the life span of the globe.


Fiber-Optic light are much less common in pool lighting. The actual light source does not have to be underwater. This will eliminate all bulb changing and waterproofing.


Adding lights to your pool will not only make it more appealing and extend swimming time, it will add value to your property.


When adding lighting or any other accessory to your pool, consult with a pool specialist when making decisions.

Create Opportunities, Live Your Dream

Create Opportunities, Live Your Dream

Don't wait for extraordinary opportunities. Seize common occasions and make them great. Weak men wait for opportunities; strong men make them. ~ Orison Swett Marden


Remember that passion you once had? A great idea or desire that has been lying dormant in your thinking. It's time to pursue it. Learn all you can about it. Don't wait for opportunity to find you; you need to find the opportunities in your life.


Do you want to start a business? Learn all you can about business plans, budgets, and business models for the enterprise you dream of. Watch for business opportunities in the paper - a small business being sold, perhaps. Learn how to take your talents and turn them into an entrepreneurial adventure!


Do you want to travel? Research the places you want to go, sign up for online notifications of travel bargains. Plan your trip in your mind and on paper. Just the commitment of 'beginning' will begin to draw what you need toward you.


Do you want to become an author, a speaker, a lawyer? What ideas, passions, and desires have you ignored - or worse, predetermined that they were impossible for you? If you can dream it, you can do it. You just have to want it badly enough, then seek the education and opportunities you need.


I once heard of someone who was in her 40's. She had always wanted to become a doctor but never had the time or resources. As she lamented with a friend, she said, "I'm too old now. It takes ten years to become a doctor. It's too late for me." Her friend wisely asked her, "How old will you be in ten years? You're going to be that age anyway, why not work at becoming what you truly want to be?"


I will be 60 this year. Little did I know at 40, or even 50, that the life experiences I've had would lead me to become an author "this late" in my life. But I am. And it's fun and scary and exciting, all at the same time! And I'm continuing to learn about this new - to me - field of writing, publishing and promotion.


What do you REALLY want to do? Real estate investments, business opportunities, financial investments and life experiences abound. People that have attained financial and personal success will tell you that they look for ways to seize opportunities. They don't wait for opportunities to come knocking on their door.


What talents, skills and life lessons have you learned that you can share with others in a more meaningful way? Are you a talented cook? Start a restaurant or catering business. Compile a recipe book. Offer to teach a cooking class for Girl Scouts, young mothers, or seniors.


Do you teach? Write a book about your classroom experiences or teaching methods. Mentor young teachers. Inspire students to share your career. Become a public speaker.


As you open yourself to the opportunities around you, don't forget the value of networking. Share your desire with people who will encourage and help you. (It's also a good idea to keep quiet around those who won't support your vision.) Talk with people who are doing what you want to do. Find a mentor.


Step out, go for it! You'll be amazed where life will lead you if you'll just pursue the opportunities around you. In ten years ... or 5 or 2, or even next year ... you could be living your dream.

Carriage Clocks Create Style

Carriage Clocks Create Style

Most homeowners want their home to have a feel that is uniquely their own. They want it to reflect their personality and style, and at the same time be comfortable and functional.


No one wants to live in a 'museum', where you can't touch anything for fear of damaging it! It takes time to create the atmosphere you are looking for, but careful choices will create that space that is 'You'.


One choice that you make is the type of clock you have in your home. If your decor is contemporary, you may choose digital clocks, or clocks with modern style frames or cases.


For the more traditionally themed home, a popular choice is carriage clocks. These timeless clocks are  excellent as a focal point or centerpiece of a room.


Some of you want authentic antique carriage clocks, and they can be found in antique stores, and maybe even pawn shops. Or, perhaps there is one that has been passed down in your family...that adds an even greater value to your clock.


Another choice is to find a reproduction. There are many quality antique style clocks or antique reproduction clocks available on the market today. With a wide variety to choose from, be sure to take the time to choose the clock that fits your style.


There really is a certain magnetism that a carriage clock brings with it. These magnificent little clocks will certainly catch the eye of all your visitors. Not only that, but when the clock chimes out the hour, your guests will be charmed!


One of the common places to display your carriage clock is on the mantel above your fireplace, or perhaps on a bookshelf or a table. No matter where you place your carriage clock, it will have an impact on the room that will be noticed by all.


The style, quality, and craftsmanship that go into carriage clocks is a rare, hard to find characteristic in today's modern clocks. It is these very characteristics that will stand the test of time. This is the type of clock that will become an heirloom to last a lifetime.



Lynn McArthur is the author of articles on a variety of subjects. After researching information available on a given subject, she likes to share what she has learned with her audience. For more information about Carriage Clocks, and the best selection and prices check out My Carriage Clocks
