Mustard Seed Necklaces and Their Meaning

Mustard seed necklaces are very unusual yet very tasteful Christian jewelry. However, many people, Christians and non-Christians alike are unaware of the existence of this wonderful crafty jewelry. This article will tackle the beautiful meaning of the necklaces that are made of these wonderful seeds.

The mustard seed is mentioned several times in the Bible, mostly in the parables. It symbolizes faith, God’s Kingdom, humble beginnings or change.

This seed reminds Christians of the power of faith. A little faith, even as small as a grain of mustard, can move even the highest mountains. That little grain of faith is enough to help a person enter God’s Kingdom.

It also reminds Christians of humble beginnings, for a small, almost invisible seed contains a plant that can grow up to more than fifteen feet tall, if proper nurturing is given to it.

The mustard tree was once considered a very destructive weed in the ancient times, because the seeds grow very quickly and without any care. It was even called “the one with the dangerous takeover properties”. However, now the mustard tree is considered a valuable source of food. And that remind Christians that people can change for the better, as something that is so impure can become something very helpful.

Now, if you are looking for an awesome yet very unique gift to a Christian friend, then I suggest you get them a mustard seed necklace. Most of these dazzling necklaces are found online, and If you do a quick Google search, you might find the most beautiful Christian jewelry online!

Dash Kit Installation

One nice way to improve the insight of your car is to supply it with wood dash kit. There is no need to buy an expensive vehicle to get benefits from the addition of dashboard trim to your original factory dash kit. Today car owners are always seeking for variants to restyle their cars and SUVs. Mounting the dash kit to your ride is very easy. Spending low efforts and time, you will greatly raise the value of your car. Following the installation step-by-step instruction below will help you to commit an easy and quick mounting of the newly bought dash trim kit on your automobile.

Right now I'm going to take you step by step through the installation of your trim kit. I would suggest that you first read this article through to the end before you begin the installation. Then you can restart reading, pausing when you work on each step. At the first step of the process make sure that you have correct part numbers for your particular application. Kits may be different for automatic and manual transmission, 4-wheel driving and so on. So you need to check that before beginning. The schematic will be supplied with you kit which will help you identify all the individual parts. And it is a good idea to keep this schematic with your warranty card for future reference if you ever need a replace a damaged part. The items included for the installation are:

– 3M Prep-Sol 70 wax and grease remover;
– Adhesion promoter;
– alcohol napkin;
– paper towels;
– a pair of latex gloves.

In addition you will need a heat gun or a hair drier, standard screwdriver and a scratch resistant fabric. Before starting any work use a plastic cover to protect the surfaces of the vehicle from damage. Then separate trim parts from the packing material. The actual installation begins with by testing fitting each trim piece to its proper location. This allows you to check the fit of each piece as well as familiarize yourself with its mounting location. At this time you will want to know the easiest way to properly align each part.

Check for the most obvious lines such such switches, vent or radio cuts out for a correct positioning. Because the wood trim is flat you will need to note areas which will require special attention if the need a bending to match sharp curves. Remember you're installing real wood and you want to make sure it's flexible enough before test fitting to an area. Therefore we recommend that if the temperature is below 80 degrees Fahrenheit you should use a heat gun or hair drier or the vehicle's heating system to raise temperature to between 80 and 100 degrees on the trim components. Use a low heat setting of the heat gun or hair drier and continuously moving with a back and forth movements to prevent an overheating and damaging the surfaces. The heat gun or hair drier should be 6-7 inches from the surface of the wood. However, if you are using a home type hair drier, you will need to head wood trim longer to reach the desired flexibility. It is very important to properly clean all the factory surfaces, to which the trim parts would be applied. DO NOT use the sharp fabrics for cleaning this factory surfaces or panels. Instead use soft towels and the special wipes provided. Do NOT reuse towels on the cleaning steps as they become contaminated. Apply 3M Prep-Sol 70 to a fresh towel to clean the factory surfaces. Then wipe the surfaces dry with a clean towel.

DO NOT spray or pour the cleaner directly on the factory surfaces. If the vehicle's surfaces were protected by special covers, you will need to repeat the cleaning process for 5 times. An easy test to check your cleaning process is to stick a piece of masking tape to a clean surface. If the tape does not properly stick, repeat the cleaning steps. When the interior surfaces are properly cleaned with 3M Prep-Sol 70, use the alcohol napkins to thoroughly wipe down the surfaces then allow them to air dry. Now you will again fit each trim trim piece close close attention to the operational switches, vents, ash trays, cup holders and so on. When each individual part is properly positioned, trace around the outside edge with the pencil. This will mark the area to be treated with adhesion promoter. Carefully apply the adhesion promoter to the areas in the trace line. If any promoter was accidentally applied to the areas not to be covered with new trim parts, you must immediately wipe it off before it dries. Use a clean towel wet with alcohol and carefully wipe the area. DO NOT apply …

Sore Throat

Pharyngitis is the term doctors use to describe sore throat and it accounts for 10-15 percent of all pediatric office visits. Group A beta-hemolytic streptococcal pharyngitis (GABHS), more commonly known as strep throat, is a primary concern of a person with a sore throat. GABHS is more common in children than adults. In both kids and adults viruses are the most common cause of sore throat.

The most important concern in the person with a sore throat is to rule out some serious conditions associated with sore throat, including, most commonly GABHS. Certain factors will help predict if the cause of the sore throat is GABHS or a viral infection. The factors are not perfect and the use of a throat culture is needed in many cases in order to rule out strep throat.

Important factors to know about strep include:

• It most commonly affects children between 5-15 years old.
• It does not commonly affect children under three years old.
• It has an incubation period of 2-5 days. This means that if you have been in contact with someone who is infected and are infected your disease may not show up for 2-5 days.
• Respiratory secretions spread the infection.

Causes of sore throat

Viruses cause the majority of sore throats. Bacteria cause 5-15% of sore throats, but those between the ages of 5-15 have a higher incidence of bacterial causes of sore throat. In this group, 15-30 percent of sore throats may be caused by GABHS.

Certain factors can help determine if the sore throat is caused by a bacteria or a virus. Viruses that cause sore throat are more commonly accompanied by cough, stuffy nose, red eyes and fatigue.

Possible diagnoses

• Viral sore throat – there are over 200 viruses that cause the common cold and each presentation may be a little different. Many of these viruses are linked to sore throat. Below some specific viruses that cause sore throat will be discussed.
• Hand-foot and mouth disease. This is caused by a virus that is called the Cocsackie virus. It causes blisters on the hands and feet as well as in the mouth or throat.
• Infectious mononucleosis can also cause sore throat. This sore throat is typically severe and associated with pus (white patches) in the throat. This disease is associated with swollen lymph nodes – particularly the glands on the back of the neck. It sometimes comes with stomach pain due to an enlarged liver or spleen. Those who are treated with penicillin will usually develop a rash (90% of the time). It is most common in those who are 10-25 years old and is accompanied by fatigue and a lingering sore throat.
• HIV is a rare cause of sore throat. Individuals who have risk factors for HIV (multiple sexual partners, men who have sex with men, intravenous drug users) who present with a sore throat should have this diagnosis considered.
• Bacterial sore throat. The most common cause of bacterial sore throat is GABHS. Other bacteria can sometimes cause sore throat.
• Fungal infections rarely cause sore throats. Candida infections are a common cause of fungal sore throat. The individual will have a sore throat with a white coat on the tongue and in the oral cavity that looks like cottage cheese. The white coating will bleed if it is scraped off.
• Diphtheria is a rare cause of sore throat. It presents with a sore throat, fever, tender lymph nodes in the front on the neck and serosanguineous nasal discharge. It can be prevented by routine vaccinations.
• Kawasaki disease rarely occurs but affects children under five and presents with sore throat, tender lymph nodes, fever, eye discharge, red oral mucosa, strawberry tongue, cracked red lips, swelling of the hands and feet and red rash on the hands and feet, followed by peeling of the palms.
• Peritonsillar abscess is a serious cause of sore throat and presents with fever, feeling wiped out, a hot potato voice, difficulty swallowing, painful swallowing, ear pain and difficulty opening the mouth.
• Miscellaneous causes of sore throat include: persistent cough, smoking, gastroesophageal reflux, postnasal drip secondary to runny nose, allergies, foreign body and thyroiditis (inflamed thyroid gland).

Complications

Most sore throats are caused by a virus and go away on their own. It is important that all health care consumers are aware of when sore throats can be serious and when they are likely self-limiting.

Death is a risk of life, but it is rarely related to sore throat. Throat abscess (pus filled infection in the throat) may lead to breathing problems as the swelling in the throat reduces the ability to breath. Diphtheria can lead to respiratory failure. Untreated GABHS can affect the heart valves and has the potential to …

Over The Door Mirrors – What You Need To Know

If you live in a small space or need some help organizing your cosmetics and jewelry, an over the door mirror might be the solution to your problems. Thanks to innovative designers there are quite a few options to choose from all of those that are incredibly helpful.

Basic Yet Intelligently Designed

Standard options are made to replace your typical floor or wall mirrors. And by doing so, they free up that space for other décor, furniture, or for other uses which can be a huge advantage when space is limited. They have special hooks which allow them to hang from the door itself so you will not need to drill and holes or put any nails in the door which otherwise could be unsightly but also cause problems if you are renting.

While some mirrors may come with the hooks already attached, most will require you to attach them yourself. This is a painless process as it only requires you having to secure them to the back of the mirror using a few supplied screws and a screwdriver. Then simply hang it over the door and you're done. And of course if you want to move it to another door in the house or you end up moving all you have to do is lift it up and be on your way.

Keep Jewelry Organized

Many consumers are pleasantly surprised to find out that there are even models which are made to store jewelry. Known as over the door mirror jewelry organizers or over the door mirror jewelry armoires, they look just like the standard variety just a little thicker. That's because inside they contain a secret storage space with all the hooks, drawers, and compartments you need to keep your jewelry collection from rings to necklaces. And best of all, in the most organized and easily accessible manner possible. With one of these you'll never waste time looking for misplaced accessories again, plus with everything right behind the mirror you can quickly decide which one matches your outfit best while looking at your reflection.

Even An Option For Cosmetics

Since the concept of mirror storage has been so popular with jewelry, manufacturers have also come up with another great way to use it, for cosmetics. These are ideal for any woman with a large collection as they can help to keep your makeup, brushes, nail polishes, and other beauty supplies all in one place. And, not just close to your mirror, but inside it! You can not get any more convenient than that.

When it comes to saving space and even staying organized an over the door mirror is the easiest way to go. They also make a very practical and affordable gift for daughters, girlfriends and wives that will be guaranteed to be used. And if you choose one with storage, you'll be making sure you make the most of your space, while cutting down on clutter, and saving precious time.

Types of Picture Frames

Welcome back! In this article, we will be talking about the different types of frames. There are four main types of frames.

1. Wood Frames

2. Meta Frames

3. Plastic Frames

4. Glass Frames

Wood

Wood picture frames are by far the most common. There's a good chance that all the picture frames in your house are made out of wood. There are three sub-categories in the wood category .. They are: wood veneer, solid wood, and composite.

Solid wood is pretty self-explanitory. It's 100% wood. Picture frames you see in stores are rarely made out of solid wood. Usually, they are made from composite wood (see below). The reason for this is that Solid Wood is expensive, and if you can get the same shape from using a cheaper process, why not do it? The cheapest of the three is composite wood. Composite wood is made from many compressed wood pieces which are glued together. The majesty of decorated frames you see are made from compressed wood. Also, it is the most common of the three types of wooden picture frames. When you think you're getting a real "wood" frame, you usually are just getting a composite one.Wood Veneer attempts to give a wooden frame a "real wood look" without using solid wood. This is done by gluing a small, high quality piece of wood onto the top of a composite frame. These are a bit more expensive then the composite frames, look very similar to solid wood frames.

Wood frames are usually a good choice when it comes to framing your pictures, but they do have a couple problems. Many people complain that when they get a wood frame, it often has knots or other imperfections in it. This is not a flaw in the particular frame, it's how wood naturally is. If you want a perfect frame with no wood like characteristics, you would be better off with a plastic imitation or a nice wood veneer frame.Many wooden frames come unfinished. Unfinished wooden frames can be damaged easily. Glue, water, or any other liquid substance can ruin an unfinished wooden frame. When dealing with unfinished wood frames, be very careful. If you can, try and put a stain on it or finish it yourself.

Plastic

Plastic frames are a good option if you are looking for a decent looking frame that lasts a long time. Plastic frames come in different types. Glossy, colored, and imitation-wood are three common types of plastic picture frames. Any of these will work, depending on what you're looking for. If you want a modern look, go with colored. They look good, and can really accent the color of a room. Imitation wood is great if you want a nice wood look with no imperfections, but if you get close up, it's easy to tell that it is plastic and not wood. Finally, glossy is made to shine in light. It often looks great, but fingerprints are extremely easy to see. If you're looking for a shiny frame, I would recommend a glass picture frame.

Metal

Metal is nearly the same as plastic, only sturdier. Many people use metal frames to give a slight "grunge" look to a picture. They also can look almost like plastic, but they're much more solid. If you have a problem with picture frames breaking, I'd recommend metal frames.

Glass

If you've read this blog at all, you'll know that glass frames are my personal favorite. They shine like metal and glossy plastic, but they look MUCH better. If you want to read some other benefits, check out my post on glass picture frames .

Closing Thoughts

This was just a quick run down on the types of picture frames. I hope it answered some questions for you! Thanks for reading. 🙂

What Might Jesus Say on the Same-Sex Marriage Survey Result?

WITH around eighty percent of eligible Australians having taken part in the SSM postal survey, it’s clear that most consider it an important issue. So significant, in fact, that it almost appears that the bell curve of views is inverted – everyone believes passionately at either side, fewer remaining middle of the road than ever. It can make for social war.

The result, therefore, polarised many of us. Many were elated and many, though fewer in number, were exasperated. Both the elated and the exasperated have the opportunity to conform back to the thinking of Christ.

Jesus challenged almost everyone he ever engaged with. Some were challenged for their encouragement. Others were rebuked, given cause for reflection. Others again received God’s wrath for the audacity they showed in abusing the powerless (i.e. chief priests and scribes). Few people are well at ease with the historical Jesus, except the powerless or those for whom life had crushed, who were also humbly ready to be nearer to God.

God does not change. Jesus does not change. He is the same yesterday, today, forever (Hebrews 13:8). His nature is how the Holy Spirit works. We stray off-line a tenth of a degree and the still, small, silent voice of the Lord counsels us back to the true and ancient path (Jeremiah 6:16).

I’m not entirely sure what Jesus would say. I’m not sure others can identify with precision what the Lord would say either. But I’m sure he would have many things to say – all truth-filled, balanced, wise, and challenges for us all to mull over. As we read the gospels, he was actually amazingly unpredictable in what he said, when he said it, and to whom he said what he said. Sure, we can say what he said makes so much sense, but wisdom is always logical from hindsight.

Simply posing this question helps us Christians check ourselves, before we respond – in the tradition of Psalm 139:23-24. In such a case, we might be counselled by the Holy Spirit to do what is always blessed and resist what is only occasionally blessed and at other times harmful.

Acting justly, being kind, and walking humbly –

these are always right.

***

It is good to ask unanswerable questions. They get us to stop and reflect into the mystery of life, which is God. And where we arrive at isn’t a set viewpoint, but acceptance for what is. That is God’s blessing for us, today and every day. It is great to know that we don’t know.

A safe position we as individuals can arrive at on complex matters like SSM is:

· acknowledge it’s complex, and that none of us owns every corner of truth on this issue or any other issue;

· understand our role is to act justly, be kind to others, and walk humbly with God (Micah 6:8), which means:

o we bear one another, our differences and inclinations, in mind, with respect;

o we watch what we do or say to avoid hurt and augment healing;

o acknowledge our opinions are just that – filtered through our limited way of seeing things;

o and, by doing these things, we hope to glorify God, which is our chief aim.

It’s good to avoid certain subjects socially so we can simply focus on being present with people. And if we really need to process the issues, it’s good to go to someone who will lead us to relief; someone who will listen, validate what we feel, but not fuel the fire.

We do not have to have something to say on every issue.

When everyone is respected, no matter their opinion or the strength of their view, everyone is loved.

Modern Aircraft – The Embraer E-170

The Embraer aircraft corporation of Sao Paola, Brazil has made a name for itself in recent years by designing and manufacturing regional jets. The first of these jets, the Embraer 145 made its first flight in 1995. The ERJ-145 is a 50 passenger jet powered by two rear mounted Rolls Royce turbo fan engines. It has a wing sweep of approximately 22 degrees and has a T-tail configuration.

The operational success of the ERJ-145 and its similar competitors such as the Canadair Regional Jet and the airlines’ desires for a larger model brought about the “E” series of jets from Embraer.

The Embraer 170 is the base model “E” jet. It’s a narrow body airliner powered by two General Electric CF-34 turbofan engines. Each engine is FADEC (Full Authority Digital Engine Control) equipped. The first flight of the Embraer 170 took place in March 2004 and the aircraft passed FAA certification in September of 2005.

The EMB -170 features a fully digital flight deck. The Honeywell Primus Flight Information Display provides pilots with increased situational awareness, increased information retrieval and better flexibility. The system consists of a total of 5 cathode ray screens and allows pilots to present flight, aircraft performance, terrain, weather and air traffic on the various displays.

The EMB- 170 cockpit is roomy which is a departure from the E-145. The base aircraft configuration holds 70 passengers in a 2+2 configuration with lavatories forward and aft.

The EMB-170 is operated with a crew of four. Two pilots and two flight attendants. It has a range of 2100 miles and a maximum speed of 481kt (mach .86). It’s maximum service ceiling is 41,000 ft.

Currently Republic Airlines, Shuttle America Airlines, LOT Polish Airlines, Egypt Air, Air Canada and Compass Air operate the EMB 170.

Why Silver Jewelery Is So Popular Now

Silver jewelery has never been more popular with consumers than it is currently, for a number of reasons. One factor has definitely been the staggering increase in the price of even more precious metals such as gold and platinum, which has driven those items out of the reach of many buyers. Silver, on the other hand, remains good value because its own price has also increased.

Price side, silver is very a la mode and fashionable, which is the largest cause for it to become so popular. Contemporary designers want to exude clean, crisp and minimalist sensations and the purity of silver jewelery achieves that exceptionally well. This is particularly true of polished silver jewelery, where the designer has ensured that there are flat or nicely curved areas of highly reflective, almost mirror like, facets to their silver jewelery collections. This makes them incredibly eye catching and attractive.

Silver jewelry also benefits from being quite a pure, precious metal. Sterling silver will have 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper, hence the hallmark '925' that each item must have stamped on it. When buying silver items of jewelery, always ensure that you have confirmed that it is halmarked or you may not be getting what you pay for.

Another reason for the popularity of silver in jewelery is that it can be finished in a number of interesting ways. If it is left unpolished and without a protective plating (rhodium is the normal material used for this) then it naturally oxidises leaving a rich, matt black finish. When combined together with a design that contrasts with it, such as polished silver, it creates a more visually exciting piece of jewelery.

Sun Glasses

Sunglasses are a very good accessory for your otherwise already perfect outfit. However, adding adding style to your look, they also serve other functions. For one, they protect your eyes to harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Exposing your eyes to harmful UV rays from sunlight has been known to cause the development of cataracts and the degeneration of a person's vision. Good quality sunglasses block all UV rays and protect your eyes from harm. Sunglasses also protect the skin around the eyes, which prevats aging aging and wrinkles.

Sunglasses also protect your eyes from other dangers. One of these dangers is glare. All surfaces reflect light, and some surfaces can cause an extremely bright glare. These reflections can be very distracting, even dangerous in some circumstances. Sunglasses reduce the glare and give you a more comfortable vision. Polarized sunglasses are particularly effective in reducing reflective glare.

Sunglasses can also reduce the headaches and eyestrain. In the eye, the pupil controls the amount of light that enters the retina. When there is little light, the pupil dilates to let light in. In bright light, the pupil constricts to protect the retina from too much light. There are times when it is extremely bright, but the pupil is not able to constrict enough to keep out the excess light. In this case, the person will resort to squinting. However, squinting strains the muscle surrounding the eyes, which causes fatigue. Pupil constriction and squinting can lead to headaches and eye strain. Sunglasses reduce the amount of light that can reach the eyes. As a result, the need to squint is eliminated. This will reduce the risk of headaches and eye strain caused by the sun.

Your eyes are a very important part of your body. You must do what you can to protect them from the harmful elements. Sunglasses are designed for your eyes' protection. Looking good is only part of their appeal.

The Pros and Cons of Three Sex Positions

Well, today, I’d like to focus your attention on three popular sex positions and, in particular, the advantages and disadvantages of each one. We will be considering the missionary position, the “man-standing-up-woman-lying-down” position and the cowgirl (“woman on top”) position.

1/ MISSIONARY POSITION

This is the traditional position for sex where, as I’m sure you know, the man lies down on top of a prone woman for intercourse.

Pros –

This is the easiest sex position to get into, requires little energy to get started and is great for sudden, spontaneous, unplanned sex. It is generally easy for the man to just roll over on top of the woman and their genitals are right opposite each other. This position lends itself to great intimacy because the two lovers can hug each other and look into each others’ eyes (if they are roughly the same height). Intercourse feels very exciting for the man, and the woman gets to receive some significant thrusting and a “whole body” experience. It is usually fairly quiet and can be done secretly if there is a danger of being discovered by other people in the house.

Cons –

This position has a reputation for being the “boring, married-people type of sex”, since it tends to lend itself to passionless “quickies” and can be repeated every time a couple have sex. It is often resorted to in order to avoid being discovered by curious kids and other people who might interrupt the session. The high levels of stimulation often cause the man to ejaculate quickly in less than 2-3 minutes, creating a bad habit for his body and a boring experience for the woman, whose body has hardly begun to respond to the sex before it’s all over. It is challenging for the man to create an orgasm for his woman unless he spends a LOT of time in foreplay beforehand and even then, lengthening the time having intercourse is quite difficult.

2/ Man standing up, woman lying down

This is the position where the woman lies down with her hips aligned with the edge of the bed, while the man stands up at the edge of the bed for intercourse.

Pros –

The main advantage of this position from the man’s point of view is the fact that it dramatically lengthens the amount of time he can have intercourse with the woman – anything up to 10-20 minutes or more can be achieved. Having sex standing up makes it much harder for his body to be stimulated to orgasm, so he has to thrust for a longer time to achieve it. He can also see the woman’s body much better and can use his hands to touch her breasts and upper body, which allows the woman to receive stimulation in two different ways at the same time. The woman usually holds her legs wide open by placing her hands behind her knees. He can also watch his penis slide in and out of her, the sight of which is a major turn-on. He can also thrust much deeper, so he can reach the woman’s A-spot, which can give the woman “cervical” orgasms.

Cons –

Having sex comfortably while standing up requires that the bed be at the same height as the man’s hips. Usually it isn’t – it’s lower. This means that the man has to bend at the knees to be able to have intercourse with the woman. This is tiring on the man’s legs because he has to thrust for a long time, plus there is the issue of his bent knees meaning that his legs are not flush with the edge of the bed. This can be resolved by pulling the woman’s hips off the bed, so that the small of her back is on the edge of it, but this requires that the woman change the position of her legs by folding them up against her chest in order to counteract the centre of gravity, so her whole body doesn’t slide off the bed – in which case, she will end up sitting on the floor with her legs wide open. Folding her legs up against her chest means that the man is no longer able to access her breasts and upper body, so that avenue of stimulation is closed off. Inexperienced women may not realise that they need to hold their legs open with their hands behind their knees and so they will dangle their legs off the end of the bed past the man’s body, which can be uncomfortable. There is a greater risk of injury to the woman’s vaginal tissues from heavy thrusting, since the man can go deeper.

3/ Cowgirl Position

This is the position where the woman gets on top of a prone man and straddles his …

Gucci Sunglasses Review

When shopping for sunglasses, the number of options is seemingly unending. And that includes the manufacturer that you choose. But if you select a pair of Gucci sunglasses, you’ll be choosing one of the top brands in the market.

It all began over a century ago, in 1906. That’s when Guccio Gucci founded the “House of Gucci,” which was a saddle shop located in Florence, Italy. Gucci’s specialty was leather goods. The shop first produced leather bags for horsemen, and later made luxury luggage.

Since then, Gucci has significantly expanded its line of products, which now includes a full line of high-end sunglasses. The company’s sunglasses have become one of the industry’s benchmarks in terms of quality and style. Here are some tips for choosing the right sunglasses for your needs:

1. Set a budget.

Even though Gucci sunglasses are high-end, you can avoid spending your life savings on a pair. The key is to find the model that you fancy, and then find the right price. Compare prices from at least three stores, and compare more if you have the time and effort. Search online and offline, and leave no stone unturned.

2. Choose a pair that filters out some blue light.

Blue light can cause damage to your retina and can ultimately result in macular degeneration. If a blue sky appears grey, then a pair of Gucci sunglasses is successfully filtering out blue light.

3. Check for UV protection.

Look for sunglasses with both UVA and UVB protection. These types of ultraviolet rays have different wavelengths, though both can potentially harm your eyes. Also, verify that the sunglasses provide 99% or 100% protection. And remember that darker glasses don’t necessarily provide more UV protection.

4. Choose a frame shape that matches your face’s shape and head size.

Verify that the shape of the sunglasses frames complements the shape of your face. You should also consider the size of your head. If you have a round face, then you should choose long and thin frames. And if you have a square face, then you should choose styles that are soft and rounded in shape.

Also, match up a pair of frames, with your head. Small sunglasses complement small heads, while large sunglasses complement large heads.

5. Check for polarization.

This feature is particularly useful if you work and play outdoors. The polarization feature will help to reduce how much glare reaches your eyes, which will improve the effectiveness of the shades.

6. Choose the right lens color.

One of the best options is gray, since it doesn’t affect your color perception. Consider which lens hue provides you with enough comfort, and suits your personal preference. If you suffer from macular degeneration, then one of your best options is orange-brown.

7. Choose rugged sunglasses if you play sports.

You’ll need frames that are lightweight yet shatterproof, and plastic. This will protect both you and your eyes while playing your particular sport.

For over a century, the Gucci name has been producing quality products. These tips will help you to choose the right pair of Gucci sunglasses.

If you just also happened to have paid a bit too much for the bad experience, it really gets the blood boiling.

The travel industry, as a whole, has been changing for the better part of the last three decades. According to travel experts, there once was a time when much of the travel industry was regulated by travel agents & agencies. While they did great work & were a reflection of their times, today’s travel industry is all about many options, low-cost, flexibility, and choice. The consumer-driven travel industry has made it to where even travelers waiting until the last-minute can actually book some tremendous savings that may not have even been possible about ten years ago.

Here are a few secrets travel gurus recommend if you’re looking to score big savings at the last-minute when booking a hotel room:

1. Combination Deals – If you’re looking to stay in a hotel, you probably need to travel. While some trips can work best if you drive, many people would rather fly to their destination & rent a car to move around town. Some of the best savings you can get group all of these options into one travel package, greatly bringing down the price. You do have to be persistent in searching for these deals, but they are out there.

2. Travel Websites – Part of the persistence needed to find great combo deals includes checking websites that specialize in travel savings. These sites put together the best deals from all over the internet, thereby saving you time, and ultimately money. You can also sign-up for email reminders & alerts for new deals coming through.

3. App Mania – Whether you work with iOS or Android, you are certainly familiar with the growing number of apps available to do just about anything. Look a little further, and you’ll find apps that are specific to finding incredible hotel booking deals especially for the procrastinator in all of us. With the right combination of alerts & having our mobile devices handy, finding a last-minute deal just got really easy.

4. Midweek Travel – Most travelers try to book on the weekends, which means they contend with everyone else trying to book during the weekend. Hotel industry insiders agree that by shifting your booking to during the week, you’re very likely to secure some serious savings on your hotel booking simply because hotels want to be sure to fill their rooms even if at a discount.

5. Off-Season Travel – In the same vein of traveling midweek, choosing to travel during a time of year when others aren’t can make for some big savings. This goes not only for hotel room reservations, but for just about all other modes of travel. This can be huge for those looking at combo deals.

Last-minute hotel deals are easy to come by than you think, but it’s important to note that as much as you’re playing the procrastinator, you also need to think critically in terms of how best to get the deals you want. With all of the options you have, casting a wide net & using technology to your benefit may be the best approach to getting the savings you want next time you book a hotel.

Where Does Titanium Come From?

You may have heard about all of the uses for titanium. From replacement body parts to jewelry to spacecraft materials, titanium is used to build lightweight and durable materials. However, have you ever wondered where this metal actually comes from? You may not know that titanium is obtained but never in its purest form. Before titanium can be ready for use, it must be combined with other materials to form usable alloys.

Titanium is the ninth most abundant element in the crust of the Earth. Its found in soils, sands, rocks, clays, water, plants and animals. It is never found as a pure metal because it reacts so readily with oxygen. It, instead, is found in ores. It also is combined with other materials to form alloys in order to increase the durability of the metal.

Originally named by German chemist, Martin Klaproth in 1795, titanium was named after Greek rulers known as Titans. Today, titanium is known for its light-weight and durable characteristics.

Titanium is typically manufactured through what is known as the Kroll process. During this process titanium dioxide is formed into titanium tetrachloride by being reacted with chlorine. Then, it is allowed to react with magnesium, which removes the chlorine and leaves a pure titanium sponge. This is then melted into bars known as ingots. The leading countries for titanium production include Japan, Kazakhstan, Ukraine and China.

Titanium is combined with iron, aluminum and other metals for uses in so many items. Almost 65 percent of all titanium produced is used in marine equipment and aircraft manufacturing since it is so incredibly light and strong and resistant to corrosion. It improves our quality of life since it is long lasting and therefore used in bone plates, screws, pace-makers and artificial replacements. It is extremely popular in jewelry and high-end sports cars.

Better Orgasm – Tongue Action For Her

As a woman, I can definitely speak to the fact that many women enjoy a good orgasm, but a better orgasm can create a mind-blowing, body-shaking, toe curling moment. The fact is every woman is acutely aware of every flaw on her body and as her partner, it is your duty to boost her self-confidence or the ideas I'm about to detail will fizzle instead of sizzle.

Oral sex or tongue action is a great way to a better orgasm for women since the clitoris is the nerve center of her vagina. Next to intercourse, oral sex is just as erotic and rewarding and often leads to a better orgasm.

Even better, setting the right atmosphere will do wonders in leaving her weak with anticipation. Seduce her with words before she leaves for work – send her off on an orgasmic high. Tell her in graphic details how your tongue will begin a long, slow, wet path up her thighs to her vagina.

Then drop to your knees, slowly kissing the inside of one thigh – giving her a sample of what's to come. If she does not have a mini-orgasm then and there do not worry because you've left her with a lasting impression to keep her body humming all-day-long.

What a delicious way to set the tone for a better orgasm. As she spends her day in breathless anticipation here are a few secrets ideas to continue building the sexual tension.

First, set a warm bubble bath filled with rose-petals and place decorated candles appropriately for mood lighting. Next, give her hot-smoldering looks as you run your hands over her body – make her feel sexy. And, the last tip to set the stage for a better orgasm is to feed her sweet tasting fruits such as chocolate covered strawberries … then suck the juices from her fingers one-by-one.

All of this foreplay will have her body wound tighter than a guitar string. Now you can begin strumming her body leading her towards a better orgasm. The cues that she is extremely turned on are usually erect nipples begging to be sucked, or rapid breathing indicating the orgasmic tension gripping her body.

Do not deny her any longer she's waited long enough for a better orgasm. Reach down between her legs and cares her vagina, stay clear of her clitoris since the slightest touch will send her over-the-edge. Slide her legs over your shoulders and set your body between her thighs. Fulfill your earlier promise by nibbling the insides of her thighs leaving a wet path as you head towards your goal. Hold onto her hips as your tongue reaches the prize – her clitoris. Be prepared for an instantaneous surging of her body as she is consumed by a hot, powerful orgasm.

As the clitoris can be extremely sensitive after a good … no, make that a better orgasm – stop the stimulation as her orgasm slows. Pull her body against yours' in a spooning position. As she settles into a delicious orgasmic haze, slowly cares her to create a sense of security and well-being. There you have it, a great technique for giving her an even better orgasm. And, remember … anything worth doing right often takes a lot of practice. So put your best effort – or should I say tongue action – into it!

Just What Is UV Protection On Sunglasses And Why Is It Important

Sunglasses are great in more ways than one. They can compliment your appearance while preventing you to have to squint while outside on a sunny day. But sunglasses are not simply a fashion accessory to be taken lightly. They are actually of major importance for protecting our eyes from the sun's UV rays which can lead to diseases of the eye when exposed to them over time.

The ultraviolet radiation element in sunlight is divided into two basic areas – UVA and UVB. Sunglasses block both of these types of rays. What exactly is UVA and UVB you ask? Well, UVA represents the ultraviolet radiation that passes through the Earth's ozone layer, reaches our skin and can lead to premature aging. UVB are also ultraviolet rays, but are absorb, in great amount, by the ozone layer. Still, they are very harmful and can contribute to the cause of skin cancer and cataracts.

The lenses of a pair of sunglasses should be dark enough to reduce the glare of bright light, but not so dark that they distort colors in objects, and obviously not so dark that they inhibit your vision. The point is that as long as the lenses are properly tinted, your eyes will be protected. You do not have to go 'crazy' looking for lenses that are so dark that they not only block out the sun's UV rays, but block out the actual sun itself.

The standard UV protectant level in the sunglass industry is UV400 – across the board – which protects the eyes from 98 per cent of the sun's ultraviolet rays. And statistics based on testing results from inexpensive sunglasses as compared to the more expensive brands show that even sunglasses in the $ 5 and below range, provide the same amount of protection as the more expensive variants. So, the good news is, you do not have to pay more for the best level of protection. And for those who wear prescription sunglasses, something else you might be interested in knowing is that the UV level is the same for both those and the store bought versions.

And for even further comfort and assurance, you may be happy to know that sunglass manufacturers have to follow certain FDA regulations. They have to comply with impact requirements – not saying that sunglasses must be completely shatterproof, but that they will at best, withstand a moderate impact. Sunglass manufacturers also have to follow labeling regulations. No doubt if you've ever bought a pair of sunglasses in your lifetime, you've had to peel that removable sticker off the front of one of the lenses either before you put them on or afterwards when you realize that something's obstructing your view.

They say you get what you pay for. Well, if you pay for a pair of sunglasses, you're paying for good eye health.

How To Prevent Sagging Earlobes

When you start to look in the mirror each morning and think “I look old,” what is it about yourself that makes you utter that dreaded phrase? Is your skin still in good shape? How about your neck? Can you see lines around your eyes or mouth if you stand a normal distance from the mirror? (Leaning in real close is cheating – even young people think “I look old” with every single skin cell under scrutiny!)

But there’s one body part we don’t often think about when it comes to aging. Sure, if you have facial wrinkles you might consider getting a facelift or having some Botox injected, or at the very least investing in some heavy duty anti wrinkle cream. But what about your ears? They can often say much more about your age than other parts of your body, and they often are neglected when it comes to anti aging treatments. Earlobes age just like the rest of your skin; they start to sag and droop over the years.

While your earlobes would sag on their own over time, there are a few things you can do to dramatically reduce the droop. One is to avoid wearing extremely heavy earrings for extended periods of time. You earlobes are not able to support very much weight, and heavy earrings pull and stretch the skin, which can cause sagging. If you do wear heavy earrings, you can prevent sagging or pulling by only wearing them for a short period of time. The rest of the time, choose lighter earrings or studs, which are the easiest for your ears to support without damaging the earlobes. You should always take out earrings before bed, no matter how big or small they are, to prevent them pulling in your sleep.

In addition, you want to treat your ears the same way you would treat any other body part – by applying sunscreen to your ears when going outdoors, and applying anti wrinkle cream daily.

If you’ve noticed your earlobes are already sagging, there are a few things you can do to tighten them up so they’ll hold earrings better in the future. There are manual stickers and products that you can use to help hold earrings up in their normal position, but as far as repairing the earlobe itself, you may need to undergo a minor cosmetic procedure. You can have fillers injected into the earlobe to fill in a sagging lobe and make it look fuller. This is a procedure similar to Botox. If your ear’s piercing is severely strained and stretched due to heavy earrings, you may need to undergo a minor surgery to repair the piercing.

Cosmetic ear surgeries have gotten more common, especially among patients who have undergone a face lift, as this can affect ear placement if not done properly. It is often a minor procedure that can be done quickly and easily.
