How Can You Get Rid of Warts?

| Articles | December 31, 2009

Warts are very common. In fact virtually everyone will experience them at some point in their life. They are very contagious and are spread by person to person contact. And although they are painless, unless they are on the soles of your feet, their dark appearance can be felt to be unsightly. But the good news is that warts are harmless enough and normally disappear by themselves within a couple of years.

Although treatment is not needed for most warts, and the wart itself will clear up in time, some people do feel the need to remove these unsightly growths. Plus, one of the other reasons people get them treated is because treatment helps to prevent warts from spreading to other parts of your body and also to other people. There are various types of treatment, and they generally involve the physical or chemical destruction of the lesion. Medical professionals have differing treatments they can offer, and these include Keratolysis which is removal of dead surface skin cells usually using salicylic acid, blistering agents, immune system modifiers or formaldehyde.

Over-the-counter medications can remove warts. These are applied to the wart every day for several weeks. DO NOT use these medications on your face or genitals. It helps to file the wart down when damp (for example, after a bath or shower) before applying these medications. There are many options you can use to remove warts. Over the counter and going to your doctor. It is up to you on how you want to go about getting them removed.

Interestingly, placing duct tape over a wart may help it disappear. A small study had people wear duct tape for six straight days, remove it, wet and scrape the wart down using a file, and then reapply the tape the next morning. This was done until the wart disappeared, for no longer than two months. The people wearing the duct tape had as much luck getting rid of the warts as those who had warts frozen off by a doctor. This method might be worth a try if you have a painless, yet unsightly wart. If there is pain there, you may not want to try the duct tape. You may want to wait until you have gone to seen a doctor about it. Because if there is pain there, it could be infected or something else. You need to contact a doctor to be on the safe side.

So, whilst warts are very common and most people will experience them at some point in their lifetime, and they are caused by a viral infection they are generally harmless and will disappear in a couple of years. And even though warts are actually benign tumour’s of the epidermis caused by a virus it is nothing to worry about. And bear in mind that warts are highly contagious, and if you do get one it has probably been transmitted from person-to-person contact.

How To Download Digital Music At No Cost

| Articles | December 30, 2009

If you are like me and love to listen to digital music but do not know much about downloading music on a computer this will hopefully help you to understand it a little better. I looked at many different sites on downloading music. The majority of them cost money. Then there are some sites where you can listen to the digital music for a short period of time and then have to pay so much per each song you want to hear.

I also saw some sites that you can use the site for about a month then have to pay so much each month after that. I thought that would be OK at least I could listen to free music for a month. I found out I could listen to the music but I could not download it. I was talking to some friends and I was told about frost wire. I thought there would have to be some kind of catch to use this site but there was no catch.

You go to this site and it will have a place where you can type in just the title of a song you want to hear or you can type in what group or individual you would like to hear. It will pull up all the digital music you are looking for. This site also has genre on it. This shows all the different types of music you can pull up on the computer. It has country,rock,blues,disco easy listening, r&b, rap, ballad, big band, oldies,etc…. It has so many different types of music I can’t list them all.

Frost wire also has a search engine,community chat,and a library where it stores all your music in alphabetical order. In the library it has continuous,play option and also it has shuffle. You can check mark shuffle and it plays the songs at random. This site also has audio, video, images,shared files, and incomplete files. After you type in a song or artist hit search and it will bring up all the digital music from that artist or individual.

When you see the song or songs you like you will see the type,size,and speed of the song.On the majority of the songs you will see 4 stars to the left of the song,and you will see some numbers on the left. It is best to download a song that has a number by it. The song will download faster. After you download your song you will see a clear / inactive button. You will want to click that clear / inactive button. This will save it into your library of music.

Anytime you want to find a new song or artist just click on the search button and that will bring you back to the original site where you started downloading. I also think it is important not to download more then one song at a time. It will take much longer to download if you try to do more then 1 at a time. So if you really want to find the digital music you really enjoy and do not have to pay a penny go to this site and try it out. I am sure you will enjoy the music as much as are family does.

How Meditation Helps Insomnia

| Articles | December 28, 2009

Insomnia simply is a chronic inability to sleep. I have had many restless nice with only a few hours a sleep. Many nights I would only get 3 or 4 hours of sleep. I had tried everything to help me sleep.I tried things like Tylenol pm.mild nerve pills and even was tested for sleep apnea and had a breathing machine to use at night for the sleep apnea.That machine made me feel as if i could not get any oxygen. Insomnia can make you crazy after awhile.

I was having a very difficult time breathing with it. I had to quit using the machine because it was so uncomfortable.I was getting very irritable from not sleeping so a friend told me how using mediation helped her.I went on the computer and found out many ways meditation helps people for many different problems. The first thing I learned is that having insomnia can also be a mind thing.

You can actually train your mind to go without sleep.I know that I think about the struggles I go through everyday and keep that on my mind so I cannot sleep well. Through meditation I have learned to calm down,relax and know that getting so upset over things I cannot change will just make things worse. Now when I come home after a exhausting day I don’t let things bother me so much. I actually first started my mediation in the morning before I left and again when I get home.

In the morning I get up about 30 minutes earlier then the rest of the family so I can have time to myself. I go into the kitchen get a book I like or a newspaper,fix me some coffee and just meditate before I have to start my hectic day. When I come home at night I know that with my insomnia I will have another restless night so I start preparing for my night after I get supper cooked the dishes done and kids to bed.

For my meditation at night I will first relax by listening to soothing music. I will turn on a music channel on my television and just kick back and relax. I then get in a hot tub and sit there and let the hot water sooth me. After I get out of the tub I do not wait to go to bed. Since my body is now very relaxed I go straight to bed. I have learned by staying awake watching TV after I am so relaxed will only make it harder for me to sleep.

Since I used my meditation while listening to comforting music and relieving my tension with a hot bath why get upset by watching television. I turn my fan on low get under the covers take some deep relaxing breaths and go to sleep. I’m not saying that I am cured and get 8 hours of sleep every night but I can say that using mediation to relax me has helped me at least get a couple of extra hours of sleep then I use to.

My husband also turns on the little clock radio to a country channel and leaves it on low all night to help him get some sleep.You have got to remember meditation is simply clearing your mind of thoughts that upset you. Once you have cleared your mind over whatever is bothering you it will be to your benefit.

Relaxing is the key to having a better day and night. So find a way of meditation that will help you relax and just enjoy your night. You are worth it and most of all after all you do for everyone you deserve to have a few moments of relaxing meditation.

How Karate Can Help With Meditation

| Articles | December 27, 2009

Although the ancient origins of karate are somewhat unclear to us,The one thing I can tell you,is that about 1400 years ago,while teaching at the Shaolin Temple in China,Daruma Daishi used techniques that were similar to karate.Later these techniques developed into forms of karate known as Shaolin Boxing.

You need a clear mind to use Karate and meditating is the best way to clear your mind when you are in a sport such as karate.In 1955 one of master funakoshi’s last direct pupils cam to the United States and was the first person to teach karate in this country.That same year he put together Southern California Karate Association,which has grown over several years to now become a national non-profit organization.

As I meditated I continued to learn more about karate.I learned in 1961,which happens to be my year of birth,Mr Caylor Adkins,One of Mr Ohshima’s first black belts, began attending CSULB and soon formed the school’s first karate club.In 1968 after being gone for a while he returned to CSULB along with a gentleman named Mr Don Depree. Mr Depree carried on the tradition and led the growing club until the year 1992,when he entrusted the leadership of the club to Mr Samir Abboud.

Still keeping my mind clear by meditating I learned that Mr Samir Abboud was a continuing student of Don Depree since the year of 1969.Samir was the CSUBL captain of the karate club,and assistant instructor to Mr Don Depree for many years. Through meditation children and adults learn breathing techniques that help them concentrate on karate. When first starting karate you will want to start with the beginners belt.The purpose of this level is orientation.

Students will be taught the general structure of the class,basic commands,the importance of self-defense and some basic combinations of self-defense moves. By concentration with meditation the student will learn to be familiar with and to perform any of the moves on the curriculum sheet.The students also should be able to stand in a Chunbi position for 1minute without moving.Minimal proficiency will be required.

The practicing time 5-10 minutes 3-4 times a week will be plenty for the beginners level.It will usually take 4-6 weeks to start your next belt. So whether you are a child or and adult learning karate for whatever reason,remember the key to karate is first using your breathing techniques and your meditation will help you to practice your breathing.

Meditation books are also very helpful, if you are interested in learning more about meditation just go to your local library and check some of them out. Take time out to study meditation and you could be feeling much better real soon, which is something that most of us all want for ourselves. Good luck and remember that keeping a positive attitude can really make a difference in your stress levels. Please take time out for yourself for meditation.

How Anti-Virus Keeps Your Computer From Crashing

| Articles | December 26, 2009

I’ll be the first to admit I did not know much about computers.I always thought when you got a computer it came with everything you needed.What I didn’t know was that you always need an anti-virus on your computer to keep it from crashing.My computer of course came with that,but I did not know after a certain length of time you have to pay to renew it.

I always thought the terminally on a computer was strange.Things like anti-virus,checking the cookies,The mouse,seemed crazy to me.Well after I found out that I had been running my computer with no anti-virus program I didn’t know what to do.My husband and I are on a fixed income so I couldn’t really afford to buy anything else for the computer.It took me years to save up to get this computer.I never expected you could get something at no cost to you.I found out that there are many free sites to get a anti-virus program.

A lot of these sites let you download the anti- virus protection for free.That was right up my alley,free! Well after I downloaded it I had to figure out next how to use it.I am not really swift on a computer.I learned that I just hit the button that says start scanning and the anti-virus program scans everything and tells me if my computer has any viruses on it.I also learned you should not put a lot of things on your computer you really don’t have to have on it.I love music so I would download a lot of my favorite songs on my computer.

That way when I get on my computer I can play my favorite songs.I did not know that slowed your computer down.I also loved to play games on the computer such as bingo or slots.I sure found out pretty quickly that not only can you lose your money fast,downloading those sites could have caused problems on my computer.I was told that the anti-virus program protects my computer from sites like those.After I was told I really didn’t need those kind of things on my computer I went to my add and delete program and delete them.

My computer actually started to run faster after I did that.I also go to run and type in cookies and clear everything out of it.It would be to easy for someone out there who knows how to hack into peoples computers to get my personal information.Identity theft is also a big concern these days.I really trust my anti-virus program to protect me from such things as identity theft but I have to do my part also.

I need to be careful about putting my social security number over the computer,or most important my credit card number or my banking information.So remember to be smart about those kind of things and try to use your anti-virus program at least twice a week.

How You Will Save a Lot of Money by Owning and Driving an Electric Car

| Articles | December 25, 2009

In today’s economy, we have to face the fact that we need to save money for emergencies. With the way the economy is performing nowadays, you really can’t exaggerate when it comes to saving money. This is also one of the reasons why more and more people are now selling their old gasoline powered cars and are buying electric cars.

So, just how can electric cars make you save a lot of money?

For starters, electric cars run purely on electricity. This means that if you own and drive an electric car, you no longer have to buy gasoline or any other petroleum products ever again in order for you to power your car or make your car run.

This is the main advantage of electric cars. So, just how do electric cars work?

Basically, electric cars work by using electricity to make the wheels of the car roll. It’s really very much like your battery-operated RC car but on a larger scale. Just think of it as a large RC car where you have batteries for power and that you can actually ride in it. Also, instead of using a remote control to make the car go forward or reverse or turn or stop, you control the car just like your average gasoline powered car.

You need to understand that electric cars are not a new concept. In fact, this concept has existed since the first car was developed. The idea of electric car was scrapped back in those days because the technology for efficient battery and lighter materials for the car’s body still didn’t exist.

It took hours upon hours to charge the batteries and the power to weight ration for the car was really terrible. Electric cars in the past were expensive and it wasn’t really as practical as gasoline powered cars.

Even today, gasoline powered cars are still more powerful than electric cars. But, because of the unstable price of gasoline and also because of the recent global economic crisis, the electric car idea was resurrected as some people may describe it.

Initially, electric cars were developed because of the growing concerns for the environment and also global warming. However, because of the financial crisis that the whole world is experiencing today, electric cars are now becoming very popular among a lot of people.

Unlike in the past, electric cars today are now equipped with the latest battery cell technology, which really made it more efficient and also a lot more practical. In addition to that, electric cars are now made a lot smaller and are also made with lighter materials. Combine this with powerful electric motor and state of the art battery cell technology, you will have a good power to weight ratio.

Today, you will see that you will not only save money on gasoline if you own electric cars. The batteries are so efficient that a single charge that will cost you a dollar on your electric bill will now be able to take you a hundred miles or even more.

And, because the federal government is encouraging people to buy electric or hybrid cars, you will also enjoy tax breaks offered by the government for people who own and use electric cars.

As you can see, electric cars can really help you save a lot of money. As an added bonus, you will also contribute to the well-being of the environment and also help stop the effects of global warming. These are the benefits of owning and using an electric car. It won’t be long in the future that you will see that more and more people will now start using electric cars as their primary vehicle for transportation.

How much protein should one eat?

| Articles | December 24, 2009

The perfect diet, which can provide the right kind of nutrition, is composed of a diet with rite combination of carbohydrates, proteins, minerals, and vitamins. Among all these components protein has a different and very essential role to play to keep the body in shape and make it strong. The main function of protein is reviving the dead tissues and enabling the growth of cells. Another essential function performed by proteins in body is making of hormones in the body and other serums required by the body. Proteins from plants are as nutritious as animal proteins. The total calorie intake should comprise of 20 percent of it. Proteins are made of essential and non-essential amino acids.

A normal diet should contain 15-20% of protein. The intake of protein shouldn’t be more than 20% as suggested by the new researches. Protein contributes 4calories of every gram consumed by the body. The right combination of essential amino acids as per the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) 1989 is: Isoleucine (10 mg), Lysine (12mg), Leucine (14 mg), Phenylalanine (14 mg), Methionine (13 mg), Threonine (7mg), Valine (10 mg) and Tryptophan (3.5 mg). These are those amino acids, which the body needs but cannot make them and are thus only made available to the body from food intakes comprising of these amino acids. And the protein needed by an infant is Histidine (28 mg). These amounts of proteins are taken in accordance with the body weight, per kilogram of it per day, by the body.

Requirement of protein depends on different factors like weight of the body, sex, age and the physical condition of the body. A normal human need for protein varies from that of the needs of an athlete or a body builder, or a person who is sick and lacks essentials required for a fit body. The body intakes essential amino acids that further help in making other non-essential amino acids required by the body to replenish the complete protein requirement of the body. The protein requirement of a body-builder is different from that of a normal workingman; the protein required by them is whey protein. Proteins from plants and from animals are the only outer sources of protein; milk has all the 8 different amino acids that the body requires for building muscles, hardening of bones and repairing cells. Eggs also provide complete protein, especially the white part of the egg.

An individual should take proper amount of protein, because any lesser than that or more than that can affect the body functioning adversely, which may result in body discrepancies. The amount of proteins suggested by physicians all over the world and by Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) has been agreed universally as the right intake of proteins for individuals with normal physical needs. The right combination of protein should be the proper combination of proteins from vegetarian food and non-vegetarian food. Vegetarian people are advised to take some dairy foods along with vegetables to keep the protein level in body at par. Dairy foods have high and good quality of proteins in them.

How Electric Cars Work: The Basics of Electric Cars

| Articles | December 23, 2009

If you watch TV today, you may see plenty of cool and modern gadgets being featured in the news all the time. Some are still prototypes while you will also find gadgets that are already available in the market today. One such modern gadget is the electric car.

Electric cars are now considered to be the “in” thing today. Because of the fact that it will enable you to save a lot of money on gasoline or diesel, electric cars are becoming more and more popular among a lot of people. In addition to that, electric cars produce no pollution at all, which means that you will be contributing a lot to the environment and help fight global warming.

Basically, electric cars are powered by an electric motor instead of a gasoline engine. From the outside, you really won’t have any idea that the car you are looking at is electric as electric car models today are now being designed to look like a conventional car. This means that you won’t look geeky when you drive an electric car. In fact, some people are even converting gasoline powered cars in to electric, which means that you really can’t tell if the car is electric or not unless you look under the hood.

Because the electric car uses pure electricity to work, there will be no combustion inside the motor like the ones you will get in gasoline engines. Because there will be no combustion or explosion, the electric car will run silently. In fact, the noisiest part when you drive an electric car is the wheels rolling on the pavement.

Electric cars run purely on electricity. This means that the car will be carrying battery cells in order to store electricity to power the car or the electric motor. Because of the huge advancement in technology, electric car batteries are now lighter, smaller and are also able to last longer in a single charge. Overall, this means that you will be able to drive electric cars in cross country trips unlike before where you can only drive electric cars inside the city.

The batteries for electric cars can also be charged very fast. This means that you can go on cross country trips and charge your car while you eat lunch during the trip.

Today, you have to consider that the electric car technology is still in its infancy. It’s basically why electric cars are not yet being driven by majority of people. However, if better batteries are researched and developed, it won’t be long that you will be able to see that all people will be driving electric cars.

If you want to save money on gasoline but you are not so sure about electric cars, you may want to settle for hybrid electric cars. This particular model is basically an electric car and a gasoline car. This uses both technologies in order to share the load which will enable you to save a lot of money.

Electric cars may not be perfect today, but if you take a look at how fast its development is, you can bet on it that you will soon see people driving electric cars and will soon start selling their old conventional gasoline powered cars and switch to electric.

How To Inspect Your Pool

| Articles | December 22, 2009

With several different swimming pool designs and equipment out there, thinking in terms of safety can be very confusing. From different swimming pool liners to buying different toys, you surely have a lot to choose from. You can always ask questions at a local supply shop to find out more, as the experts there can surely help you. There are a lot of needs with swimming pools, especially when you get everything you need.

The first thing to do when inspecting your swimming pool is to figure out your average depth. Your average depth will help you determine your swimming pool capacity. You can figure out your average depth by adding the deep end to the shallow end, then dividing by 2. The average depth tells you a lot about your swimming pool, including the design and capacity. Once you know your average depth, you can pretty much buy any accessory you need without any problems.

Your design of swimming pool will help you in choosing the best cover for your swimming pool. There are a few covers to choose from, most of which vary from season to season. You can use different covers for summer, spring, and winter, each one offering you something different in terms of protection. Nearly all supply shops have a lot of covers to choose from, and as long as you know your design – you can further inspect your pool and select the right cover.

Once you know your average depth and capacity for your swimming pool, you can move on to other inspections. The liner is next, as it protects the quality of your water. A liner will maintain the pH level of your water, and help prevent algae from forming and growing. When you inspect your pool to select a liner, you should think in terms of material. Most are plastic or vinyl, and can provide you plenty of attraction along with great protection as well.

With your swimming pool, you’ll also need to think and inspect your swimming pool in terms of safety. If you have a belowground swimming pool, you should always remember that it can attract a lot of visitors. Due to this fact, you should always have someone watching the pool, or an adult around at all times who can swim. Or, you can simply use a locking gate that surrounds your pool to keep people out of it when you aren’t around.

Another area of swimming pools that most people find enjoyable are the toys and accessories. The more must have accessories and toys are goggles, as they will help little children protect their eyes from the chlorine. You can also find several different types of floats as well, as they are fun to lay on and also help kids stay afloat. Swimming belts and water wings are great as well. If you have thought about adding toys to your pool, you should always look around and shop for the best prices.

Inspecting your swimming pool can be fun, although it is something that you simply must do. You can inspect in terms of maintenance as well, although you’ll need to inspect your pool before you buy any type of equipment or other things for you pool. When you visit your local pool supply store you’ll need to know different things, which is the reason for inspecting. Inspecting your swimming pool doesn’t take a lot of time – yet it is something that you simply must do if you want to get the best out of your swimming pool.
