How To Grill The Perfect Sausage

Published

on

I love sausages and grilling them has to be one of the best ways to cook them but so often I’ve been to a barbecue party and found and absolute culinary disaster verging on a health risk

Let’s get one thing straight before we go any further and that is just because you’re having a barbecue, it doesn’t mean you have to serve poor quality sausages. So many times I’ve heard friends say “I’ve bought cheap sausages because we’re only going to burn them anyway”. Don’t accept the inevitability of it, if you buy poor quality, they will be full of fat which will spit and cause flare ups ending up with a burnt offering. There is an alternative way.

Accept the challenge, it is possible to cook a good tasty sausage on a barbecue grill and to make it easy for yourself you must start with a good quality sausage. For sure one of the fundamentals of any sausage is fat and the cooking process is effectively boiling the contents in the fat so there’s always going to be some spitting of fat but your task is to manage this.

What makes a well cooked sausage? For me it’s:-

  • A crispy texture to the skin
  • Light caramelization to sweeten the meat flavor
  • Succulent moist meat inside

One cooking method I have heard of is to pre-cook the sausage in water first to help disperse the fat so there’s less fat to spit (and so burn the sausage) when grilling but I don’t like this because it means less time on the grill to get the crispy caramelized skin that adds so much of the flavor. Maybe if you are a novice it’s worth having a pop but here’s my guide to how to cook the best sausage.

If using charcoal, be patient. You need grey / white coals that have well bedded down. If there’s any sign of black on the charcoal you’ll be susceptible to flare ups. If you’re cooking a number of things, put the sausages on last when everything is starting to die down. If you’ve got a gas grill then sausages should be cooked on low, in fact a low light under the searing plate is an excellent way.

Don’t prick the sausage. The whole idea is for the meat to cook in the fat and if you prick the sausage the fat simply runs out and the meat dries up – not to mention the fact that you’re inviting the fat onto the fire and encouraging further opportunity for flare ups and burnt offerings.

Cook the sausages as individual units, this makes them easier to handle and you can be sure that they cook on all sides. It may seem easier to use a basket so that you can turn more sausages at one time but I prefer not to because you only get to cook the sausage “top and bottom” and I think that you miss the opportunity to crisp up the skin all over and it’s also easier to serve a sausage that appears well done on the surface yet is undercooked inside.

To avoid an undercooked sausage you can of course use a temperature probe, generally you’re looking for an internal temperature of 165°F to consider the sausage cooked.

Don’t continually turn the sausages. Give them change to cook, take on color and caramelize on each side. Despite a sausage being round in cross section I typically look on a sausage as having four sides and cook accordingly. It is however sometimes difficult to cook on “all four” sides because your sausage is particularly bent. The best way to straighten a sausage is to use heat so place the sausage on the grill with the exterior curve directly over the heat first, the skin and meat on this side of the sausage will contract and it will straighten out.

I heard one gentleman talking about frying a sausage and recommending you place the sausage in the pan on a very low heat and cook slowly for two hours. Whilst I’m not recommending this length of time for the grill I hope it emphasizes the point that low and slow is the way to go.

We Cannot Give What We Don’t Have

Published

By

One of the most important things that we need to realize whenever we attempt to do something with or for another, is that we cannot give what we do not have. We must first become and/or have what we desire to give.

We cannot give neither money nor food if we have none. However, we fail to understand that this applies at every level of our being. We can only give from our essence and what is in our soul. Apparently, many of us are unable to get what we want to achieve in life because we are unable to get what we desire within ourselves first. We are not able to create the necessary conditions within our own being to have what is necessary to accomplish our desired external experience.

We must somehow change the essence of our being because there are certain concepts and understanding about how we create our experiences that were never provided to us. This is particularly true for anything in our life.

We cannot give what we do not have. We need to somehow become what we want to be in life. Consequently, we cannot love ourselves in the way we need to be loved, we cannot give love to another. We might be able to give because of a sense of duty, obligation and expectations, but we cannot give love simply because we do not have it to give.

In reality, we look for satisfaction in what we desire externally rather than finding satisfaction in who and what we are. To find satisfaction in who and what we are allows us to feel a wholeness within our being and experience a oneness in our life. Our desires arise from a desire to share the abundance in our life with others rather than looking for another to satisfy our needs.

Life maybe that complicated, but we can simplify it by being grateful and thankful of what we have. We can share to others these virtues but oftentimes ignored by some because of their incapability to accept intangible things that money can’t buy. It’s difficult to open up and love without feeling vulnerable.

I don’t know why other people impose too much. I am really a very nice person. But I am surrounded with very parasite people that they think of me as a wonder woman who can make everything possible. I am just like anybody else, imperfect but capable of loving and taking care of my family despite the odds. Why other people abuse my kindness? Can’t they see my worth?

The reason why I don’t want to stay near my family is that they want me to do everything for them despite the fact that I already gave them everything I have – time, money and effort. I also have kids who need my unconditional devotion.

You know that I would never leave you. I love you all.

What is Organizational Innovation?

Published

Defining Innovation

Organizational innovation refers to new ways work can be organized, and accomplished within an organization to encourage and promote competitive advantage. It encompasses how organizations, and individuals specifically, manage work processes in such areas as customer relationships, employee performance and retention, and knowledge management.

At the core of organizational innovation is the need to improve or change a product, process or service. All innovation revolves around change – but not all change is innovative. Organizational innovation encourages individuals to think independently and creatively in applying personal knowledge to organizational challenges. Therefore, organizational innovation requires a culture of innovation that supports new ideas, processes and generally new ways of “doing business”.

The Benefit of an Innovative Organization

In promoting a culture of innovation organizations should foster:

– Cross functional team building while discouraging silo building

– Independent, creative thinking to see things from a new perspective and putting oneself outside of the parameters of a job function

– Risk taking by employees while lessening the status quo

The value and importance of knowledge and learning within organizational innovation is crucial. If innovation is about change, new ideas, and looking outside of oneself to understand ones environment, then continuous learning is a requirement of organizational innovation success.

The value of learning and knowledge can only be realized once put into practice. If new organizational knowledge doesn’t result in change, either in processes, business outcomes, or increased customers or revenues, then its value hasn’t been translated into success.

The road to organizational innovation lies in the ability to impart new knowledge to company employees and in the application of that knowledge. Knowledge should be used for new ways of thinking, and as a stepping stone to creativity and toward change and innovation.

Steps to Innovation

To determine how supportive your current environment is in fostering innovation read the frequently asked questions and answers below, about how to build an organizational culture that encourages innovation.

1) Is a climate of innovation supported by senior management?

a. That means, that such activities as risk taking and small ad hoc work groups that brainstorm and talk through ideas need to be promoted, supported and encouraged in the organization.

2) Do managers routinely identify and bring together those individuals more oriented toward innovation those willing to think new ideas and act on them?

a. Identifying new thinkers and individuals oriented toward change helps to ensure an outlet for innovation by supporting these individuals and giving them and like-minded colleagues the time and opportunity to think creatively. This is tantamount to becoming an innovative organization.

3) Is there a process in place monitoring innovation teams and identifying what has and hasn’t worked as a result of them?

a. Maintaining and monitoring innovation is important. This requires checks and balances that identifies how innovation is developed and managed and processes that capture what did or didn’t work. In order to be able to continue to innovate in a changing environment, continually monitoring the internal and external environment to determine what supports or hinders innovation is key.

4) How can an organization be strategic and focused on it goals yet build and develop an innovative culture?

a. The value of a strategic focus remains important to a company’s success. In fact, clear direction and understanding of a company’s mission can help fuel innovation – by knowing where in the organization innovation and creativity would provide the most value. An innovative organizational culture creates a balance between strategic focus, and the value of new ideas and processes in reaching them.

5) Is there a single most important variable or ingredient that fuels an organization toward an innovative culture?

a. Similar to other successes of an organization, what drives innovation are the people of the organization. First, management must set the expectation of innovation and creativity and then “doing business” is about how to improve processes, products and customer relationships on a day-to-day basis. This mindset itself will create an ongoing culture of innovation.

Grass Colors and What They Mean

Published

on

By

Everyone knows that grass is green, but did you know that your lawn can change its color slightly throughout the year? The color of grass depends on the environmental conditions – how much sun and rain it gets and what the soil is like. Most subtle color changes are harmless, but if your lawn seems to be changing color drastically it could be a sign of an underlying problem. Below are some colors your grass may go, and what they all mean.

Dark Green

Dark green grass is a sign that it’s producing lots of chlorophyll – this is a sign of a healthy plant. It’s got enough nutrition to produce chlorophyll and thrive. Your grass may turn a darker green during the spring and summer when it has lots of sun, especially if you’ve fertilized during the spring. Make sure your lawn has enough water and you should have a lush green garden all summer long.

Yellowish

Yellowish grass isn’t producing much chlorophyll because it isn’t getting enough of the right nutrients from the soil. You may need to use a fertilizer to get the green color back. The best time to fertilize is during the spring and autumn, as this gives the grass time to take on nutrients before its main growing and ‘sleeping’ phases. If the fertilizer doesn’t work your grass may have a disease.

Red

A red tinge to your grass could mean several things. Sometimes it’s just a sign that the grass isn’t producing a lot of chlorophyll. If your grass turns red during autumn and winter, wait for the warm weather to come round again because this might cure the problem. Some grasses, like Ryegrass, have a natural reddish hue so check what species your plant is. Red can also be a sign that the plant is under stress – this could be because of environmental conditions, or it could be because of disease.

Orange

Orange color is normally produced by fungi that live on the grass plant. Rust disease for example leaves orange-colored spores that come off if you rub the grass between your fingers. They’re harmful and can kill the grass, but they usually don’t kill the whole thing off. If you do have rust disease you’ll need to treat your lawn to minimize damage.

Tan color

By the time your grass goes tan it’s most certainly dead. Tan grass has been scorched and dried out in the sun, shriveled due to lack of water, or mown too harshly and succumbed to damage. If you’ve looked after your lawn and it’s still dead it’s probably been a victim of disease.

You should always try to make sure your grass has a healthy growing environment, as this may halt or reverse the color-changes you see. Make sure your lawn gets enough water and nutrients and ensure that you mow correctly. A stressed lawn is prone to weaknesses and this is when negative (although reversible) changes can occur. If nothing works then you should assume your lawn has a disease and look into that instead.

What is the Average Reading Speed and the Best Rate of Reading?

Published

on

By

The average reading speed of a child in primary school is around 200 words per minute (wpm). By the time we reach adulthood, it hasn’t improved very much, as, on average, most adults read at a rate of about 200 – 250 wpm. While comprehension at this rate is considered reasonable, at 250 wpm it will be difficult to read large amounts of information in a short period of time.

Certain individuals claim to read at speeds of 10 000 wpm or even 25 000 wpm and say they are still able to understand all they have read. Even though rates like this may be achieved by these exceptional individuals, a speed of 1000 – 1200 wpm is the rate at which contestants read at the World Championship speed reading competitions. Therefore, if your average reading speed comes anywhere near this rate, you can consider yourself doing fantastically well. Do not feel that you need to reach championship levels in order to achieve your learning and reading goals. It is up to each and every individual to decide how far to push the speed limits!

For a person interested in increasing his abilities, a goal of 500 – 800 wpm is an excellent target. At this rate it is possible to get through large quantities of work in a short time and maintain a comprehension level of about 75% or more. This is an excellent level of comprehension and probably more than adequate for any of your required purposes. Compare this to the average reading rate of adults (200 – 250 wpm), where their comprehension level is only half or slightly more of the material they have read.

800 – 1000 wpm would be an outstanding achievement. In order to have reached this level, an individual may have invested in an excellent speed reading course and practiced speed drills. Believe it or not, comprehension at this level is also outstanding, reaching levels of 100% or very close to 100%.

Results of 100 – 200 wpm is considered a basic reading rate. In adult terms this is a below average speed, but for children between the ages of 6 and 12, it may be considered as average. Only low levels of comprehension are achieved at this rate. An adult who reads at this pace will be amazed at what some of the simple techniques will do for his reading speed. Reading at any pace below 100 wpm will probably be read by someone who is still learning to read or perhaps by someone who is reading in a second or third language. At this rate comprehension will be difficult.

How can I make real money on line? This is the question that a lot of people who are internet marketers ask. You see, there is so much hype about how you can make tons of money without having to work for it online.

The truth is that you can make money online without having to do any work. However, it will not happen overnight and it will take some time before you start seeing results.

If you are willing to put in the time and effort then there is no reason why you cannot start to see some profits.

If you have been on the internet for a while now then you have probably seen a lot of different business opportunities. However, the overwhelming majority of these businesses require you to invest a lot of your time and money into them.

So you ask, “How can I make this kind of money?” I am going to tell you.

First, if you are looking at making money on the internet then you should have a website or at least a blog. This will be your hub for everything that you do. It is also where you will be marketing your products and driving traffic to your site.

There are a lot of different ways to get traffic on the internet. However, you need to know which ones are the proven ones. For example, pay per click advertising is one of the most common ways of driving traffic to your site.

This requires you to spend money on advertising. A lot of times, this will not yield a lot of money but it can help you build a decent list.

You will also have to put up with a lot of traffic snags when you first get started. This is because you have just gotten started. This means that you are still trying to figure out how to make money online.

You may not know it yet, but that is going to be the case for a while.

One of the first things that you need to do is find out what kind of hosting company you will want to go with. You will need to decide which kind of server you want your site on.

There are literally hundreds to choose from. Your best bet is to try and find one that fits your budget.

Once you have found a good host then you can start setting up your site. There are a number of tools that are offered to help you with this process.

These tools will help you build a professional looking site in a matter of minutes. Once this part is done, you will have to focus on putting together your first copy of your content.

Once you have your site online, it is up to you how you promote it. There are a lot of ways that you can advertise your website. You can do this either with paid advertising such as Google AdSense, or you can get your website out there for free.

One of the best ways to do this is by simply submitting it to free classified ads sites. The more traffic you are able to drive to your site, the more money you will make.

When you are trying to make a real income from online, it is important that you take the time to learn how to properly monetize your website.

This is what will make you money. Without proper monetization your online business will fail. You should be able to choose between pay per click advertising, or contextual advertising, or even affiliate marketing.

As you look for the right way to monetize your site, it is important that you only ever get involved with businesses that have a legitimate reputation.

If you are going to be an affiliate marketer, it is important that you don’t just jump in with both feet and try to make a lot of money that fast.

Instead, it is wise to become a reputable marketer in order to avoid scams. Many people get involved in affiliate marketing without taking the time to become educated about it. This can be a huge mistake.

There are many programs out there that promise to help you earn large sums of money. However, there are a lot of these programs that are either scams or they simply do not work.

To avoid becoming one of these people, it is best if you spend some time doing your research before signing up for any program. This way, you can stay away from any scams, and you can also find a legitimate opportunity that works for you.

Getting Temporary Or Short-Term Car Insurance Coverage

Published

on

By

If you are looking for short term car insurance you should know that you may not even need it. If you are thinking about getting car insurance for a short time period you are probably about to rent a car or borrow a vehicle…

Renting a car:

The rental car service will offer you some form of accident protection, liability insurance, loss damage waiver, and/or personal effects coverage. You do not need any of these offered insurances as long as you have your own car insurance because the insurance coverage you have on your car transfers over to the rental vehicle. It, however, does not transfer over if you are using the auto for some sort of business trip (something that is not recreational). In the following list you will find each of the 4 rental auto insurance possibilities and why you should probably skip each one…

Liability Insurance: All car insurance comes with liability coverage, which will transfer over to any car you drive. Keep in mind that liability coverage does not protect you, your passengers or you car, but those around the car (pedestrians, property, and other cars on the road).

Loss Damage Waiver: This protects the rental car from damage or loss. Some LDW’s only cover damage to the car if you are found to be innocent in an accident. Regardless, getting an LDW is pretty pointless if you have collision coverage (which would pay for repairs to the car regardless of who is at fault) and comprehensive coverage (which pays for damage or done to the car from things such as theft and collisions with wild life).

Personal Accident Coverage: It is very likely that you do not need this type of coverage because you either have health insurance, Medical Payments Coverage, or Personal Injury Protection.

Personal Effects Insurance: Your renters or homeowners policy will pay for the loss of items not only in your residence, but outside of it as well. If you want to insure something expensive, however, be sure to fill out a floater for that specific item.

If you are not absolutely sure if you are covered by your own car insurer, read your policy and, if you don’t understand something, give your auto insurer a call. You should also know that if you pay for the rental car using a credit card, the credit card company may provide short term coverage for that automobile.

Borrowing a car:

A lot of folks wonder if they need short term or temporary auto insurance if they borrow someone else’s car. Generally, no you don’t. The borrowed person’s car insurance coverage will transfer over to you as long as he or she gave you consent to use that car, making getting any type of short term car insurance useless. However, there are some things to keep in mind…

The liability insurance of the person from whom you borrow the car may not be enough to pay for liability damage that you cause while driving their car. If you have your own car insurance, this probably isn’t an issue. If, however, you don’t have your own car insurance and are held responsible for property damage of bodily injury liability fees after an accident, the liability insurance that is transferred over to you may not be enough. Say you cause $25,000 in damage and the lender’s liability coverage only goes up to $20,000. You are responsible for the additional $5,000, unless you have liability coverage yourself, which is at least $25,000.

You can easily correct the aforementioned problem by getting a non-owners auto insurance policy.

How to Shop For an Endzone Camera

Published

on

By

Choosing the best endzone camera for your team might not be quite as straight forward as you may have thought. You could go straight for one of the well-known makes, such as Hi-Pod or Endzone Video Systems, simply because you know that other teams use those models with systems like Hudl.

However, jumping straight in and buying an end zone camera based solely on the fact that you know the name won’t guarantee that you get the best video camera tower for the best price. So, before you spend your team’s money on an end zone camera tower to use with Hudl, check out these important features that you should look at before you buy.

Software options

Before we get on to how to shop for an endzone camera, you might be asking the question; what is Hudl? Hudl is one of the best known video coaching software systems on the market and the company provides software, such as Hudl Football and Hudl Soccer, which enables coaches to analyze and share video footage of games and practice sessions. Hudl is not the only company in this market, though, there is a company called Krossover, which supplies similar software, and there is also a fairly new entrant into the market called VideoChamp Sports, which has been getting some extremely good reviews.

The camera

The first thing to think about when you are buying a video camera tower is the camera itself. If you already have a good quality video camera, you will need to make sure that the camera is compatible with the endzone tower equipment. If you don’t have a camera, be sure to check the specifications of any sports video camera tower that you look at, because not all manufacturers include a camera in their package.

Innovative design features

Some of the more established suppliers have pretty much stayed with the same design for many years. It’s well worth looking at some of the new innovative designs, which include the use of carbon fiber poles, which are lightweight and very strong, and swivel-poles, which make moving the camera for one angle to another much easier.

Check the weight

The weight of the various models of endzone camera systems can vary quite considerably, so check how much the whole unit weighs and how easily it can be packed away and carried. As a guide; 50 pounds is probably about the maximum weight that you would want to go with.

Look the battery charging options

Look at the battery life of both the viewing monitor and the cameras, and look what the battery charging options are. Some of the newer, more innovative designs of endzone cameras and remote control cameras have solar battery packs included, which can be great for using in long practice sessions when you can’t get to a power outlet.

Look at the quality of the viewing monitor

The quality of the viewing monitor is also an important consideration when you are shopping for the best endzone camera. You will get the best viewing results from a high-resolution LCD monitor that is at least 7 inches square.

Stability

For good picture quality, and for safety, you need to make sure that a video camera tower is going to stable and that it can be securely anchored to the ground. Look for systems that have independently adjustable legs, so that it can be set up level on uneven ground, and it should also have a full range of anchoring equipment, including straight stakes, spiral stakes, anchor-bags, and spike pegs.

Check the accessories list

When you are comparing the different models of endzone video camera tower systems, make sure that you are comparing like for like. Some suppliers don’t include anywhere near the same number of accessories with their tower units as others do. When you are looking at the price of video camera towers, be sure that you know what is included in the package and what you will need to purchase separately.
