Simple Rules of Encryption for Better Data Privacy



It is recently reported by the online media that some high-profile celebrities have been caught by a photo hack, which is a kind of online hacking trap. They have suffered a lot of public humiliation due to what hackers did to their personal files. But it is not only limited to celebrities rather everyone of us is under threat and thus we need to keep our vital information and files protected. If you know how to keep your sensitive data protected, then you need not worry about anything. Given here are some simple rules to follow to ensure your data privacy.

Device Settings

All those who have installed a cloud app like iCloud, Dropbox and Google+ need to understand that their pictures get uploaded automatically. It is an alarming concern for which you need to be careful while you are busy clicking and saving pictures. You also need to understand that when you delete a picture from your device then don’t assume that it is erased from cloud as well. It is just a scratch on the surface of stuff. If you want to remove it from there then you need to login to your Cloud account and get rid of it from there manually.

Data Encryption

Data encryption goes a long way when it comes to data privacy and security. All your files get saved locally but when you share them then you require encryption. There are numerous ways to encrypt a file; given here are three most popular data encryption methods.

Using 7-Zip

The most popular medium of encryption is 7-Zip that helps encrypt files that are in an archive. A passphrase is used to protect archived items. If you are using Windows 7, then you can download it easily. After downloading it the menu of 7-Zip will be added to your File Explorer and from here, you encrypt your files.

• For encrypting multiple files, select a file and right-click, then select 7-Zip, and add it to archive

• Name the archive folder along with a passphrase to protect it, now your file gets encrypted

• You can perform it on the cloud as well as your e-mail


BitLocker is yet another tool for encrypting your drives. The feature of TrueCrypt enables in encrypting sets of files as a container. For Linux users they can use Tomb for this purpose, and then your complete hard drive is going to get encrypted. It comes handy for local storage of your system. This program is available for free if you would want more out of it then you will need to go for the paid version.

PGP Encryption

PGP or Pretty Good Privacy is the most effective data encryption tool. You can create and manage your files with it by using gpg4win for Windows 7 users. If you are a Mac OS X user, then you can use the GPG tools by using GnuPG.
PGP, however, helps in two ways by providing a private and a public key that helps in encrypting your messages and files. If you want to encrypt a file for another user then use the public encrypt key but if you want to decrypt a file then use the private key.

Utilizing these tree encryption programs, you will be able to protect your pictures and other sensitive data from hackers. You can enjoy sharing stuff online without having to bother about privacy issues anymore.


Learning How to Enjoy Skateboarding




As we all know, skateboarding is Great Fun. I’m sure that you know how cool it is to learn new tricks and show them to friends and everyone. However, skateboarding can be very frustrating sometimes. If you feel that you are not a successful skateboarder, you should try concentrating on different things. Skateboarding is all about high speed, relaxedness and having fun! Nowadays, when people starts to learn skateboarding, they always want to learn those ollies, kickflips and 360 flips before everything else. It isn’t the very best way to start skateboarding. If you really want to enjoy skateboarding, try to remember following things:

1) Make sure your skateboard isn’t out-of-date. Clean up your bearings in order to roll properly. If you need a new grip, buy it from your local skateboard shop. You should Never forget to take care of your skateboard.

2) Avoid misfitting clothes for example tight jeans. Ensure that you can move your body parts, especially legs, well enough.

3) Do not wear sneakers while skateboarding! The truth is that sneakers aren’t made for skateboarding, they are made for jogging. The best way to find proper shoes is to visit your local skateboard shop and ask for skateboarding shoes.

4) While skateboarding, sometimes it is refreshing to forget all those complicated tricks and just roll with high speed. Learn to handle your skateboard by rolling in a skateboard ramp and in a pool, if you can find one. Try to do some “old school” tricks, for example “downhill slide”. It feels cool and it looks cool as well. The main focus is on feeling your board. Feel it completely!

5) There are always times when you should not skateboard. Do not go skateboarding when you are angry or tired. It can be very damaging for your skateboard and for yourself. Always remember that skateboarding is just about having fun.

In my opinion these things are good to recall when skateboarding doesn’t just feel good. A good skateboarder isn’t just good at making tricks, but he can really have fun and enjoy.

Comments are welcome. Feel free to share your opinion!

Google PageRank Principles That Work




Let me explain. While there are countless SEO tools you should incorporate in your bag of tricks, some are more important than others.

What is Google PageRank anyway? PageRank refers to the frequency of visits to a particular page. Put briefly, it determines page importance in relation to other pages like it. It emphasizes the importance of a given site in relation to the inbound and outbound links of sites with similar content or themes. Google PageRank principles serve two common purposes: to check the popularity of a site and to evaluate competition, respectively.

As far as Google PageRank principles go, there are three SEO tools in particular that you should master, as they will have a direct impact on your Google PageRank.

Principle number one, and the most important, is to have useful, relevant content. Never underestimate the fact that content is king. In other words, develop worthwhile content or don’t create it at all. Article submissions should be specific to your subject or cause. Forget the fluff; it just doesn’t pay off. Mega-sites, ones that create new content almost constantly, have higher Google PageRank numbers and for good reason. Mega-sites create thousands of links that point back to their main page, giving a sense of importance. If you’re building your site and adding pages on a regular basis, make certain to use links that return to your homepage. Good quality links are a necessity.

Google PageRank principle number two involves manual directory submissions. Directory submissions are one of the best ways to get Google ranking. They create incoming links from sites with related content. It’s a repetitive and boring, but worth the time and effort. If you don’t want to take on the task yourself, hire someone to do it. There are companies out there that are eager for your business.

The third Google PageRank principle involves creating appealing page descriptions for search engine robots. Meta tag descriptions and top ranking go hand in hand. It’s important to note that although a good Meta tag description is important and may get you top ranking, it does not guarantee a website’s success.

For example, let’s image that you’ve done everything right and included a series of Meta tag descriptions, but the chosen descriptions are dull, basic and boring. Now let’s say that a competitor, ranked directly under you, has displayed informative, exciting and enticing descriptions for their site. Which site will get more clicks? The number of clicks to your website is highly dependent on effective Meta tag descriptions; it can determine just how many potential customers take the time to visit your site.

When all is said and done, it comes back to website traffic; and as you can see, Google PageRank principles, when applied effectively, can turn your website from an unpaved gravel road into a four lane interstate.

Your Guide to Paid Marketing During COVID-19




Useful Paid Advertising Campaign Strategies

If you’re wondering how COVID-19 is affecting paid advertising campaign strategies, you’re not alone! And the answer is: both negatively and positively.

On the one hand, people are home more, and doing virtually everything online. But many people are reducing what they spend because they’ve lost their job or are trying to save some money to get their family through the pandemic.

And while some businesses are seeing a surge of traffic during this time, others with products or services that aren’t in demand are seeing a dismal trickle of traffic or are having to pause or stop their campaigns entirely. Influencer Marketing Hub reports that 69% of the 237 brands they surveyed expect to decrease ad spend in 2020.

I’ve previously spoken about how it is essential to pivot to meet the needs and wants of your target audience. This means taking a closer look at what you can offer people during the COVID-19 crisis-both as a small business owner and as a member of the community.

This time, I’m sharing some tips on managing PPC during the coronavirus. PPC stands for pay-per-click advertising, also known as non-organic traffic. (Organic traffic comes from unpaid SEO techniques).

Depending on your small business, you may run paid ads on:

  • Google Ads/display ads on the Google Display Network
  • Facebook
  • Instagram
  • Twitter
  • YouTube (and in-video ad placements)
  • LinkedIn

3 Steps to Getting Started with Paid Marketing During COVID-19

Even if you currently run an ad campaign, it’s important to take a look at your keywords and ad copy. Are they as effective as they can be?

Just because people are practicing social distancing doesn’t mean they aren’t actively looking and shopping online. However, the ad copy that you used before may not resonate with-and could even offend-your target audience now.

1. Research your keywords.

It’s always essential to research your keywords, and especially now! You want to be looking at your target audience’s buying behaviour related to COVID-19.

You might be surprised to learn there’s a new niche keyword you could go after, or that your customers are using a different search term than you expected.

Also, look for keyword opportunities within your business around topics like:

  • Working/schooling from home
  • Streaming services
  • Health products/services
  • Communication tools

There are a number of keyword search tools out there, or you could hire a professional SEO/SEM company to handle everything from keyword research to reporting on data.

2. Revisit your value propositions.

Many entrepreneurs are updating their value propositions to better serve their customers.

You can increase the appeal of your ads and encourage more people to click with relevant value propositions, whether it’s free shipping, home delivery options or a limited-time discount-just be sure you’re not using anxiety or fear around the pandemic to sell.

3. Review your negative keywords.

You can use negative keywords when you want to make sure your ad doesn’t show for a certain keyword. This saves you money on wasted clicks and keeps your ads more relevant, which increases your quality score (which lowers your cost-per-click).

You might want to set certain keywords around in-person services to negative now, so you’re not paying for clicks related to things you aren’t offering your customers at the moment.

You can also limit where your ad shows up. For example, maybe you don’t want your advertisement appearing next to COVID-19-related content during this sensitive time.

However, because there’s just SO much COVID-19 stuff out there, you may drastically limit your brand visibility by doing that. And according to a recent report by Integral Ad Science, 78% of people they surveyed wouldn’t see general ads near coronavirus content as a bad thing.

So, you’ll have to use your judgement for this one, based on what you sell and how you position your ads.


READ: “4 Marketing Strategies for the COVID-19 Crisis” on our website:

From connecting in our relationships to running our small businesses, COVID-19 has transformed the way we live, work and socialize. I do feel fortunate that my family and I are healthy and safe, and I’m trying to find the positive opportunities in all of this.

As we continue self-isolating to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, I wanted to share 4 marketing strategies to consider to help you keep your business running smoothly and successfully.


Why You Need Short- & Long-Term Paid Advertising Campaign Strategies

Of course you need to be focused on the present and how you can best move your small business forward now. But as you’re navigating paid marketing during COVID-19, don’t forget about your future!

Use what you’re learning now to drive your decisions. Look at your keyword data: what’s resonating with your customers? What’s not getting traffic?

You may find you can continue with similar paid advertising campaign strategies after COVID-19 is over, and/or you may realize you need to drastically adjust your sails.

It’s a good idea to think about how your small business is going to come out of this pandemic, as far off as that might seem. Create an advertising plan now so you’re not left scrambling down the road.

Sure, it may change, and you may have to pivot again, but at least you’ll have a marketing foundation to build upon.

While advertising during the coronavirus may be anything but “business as usual,” it’s critical you’ve got the tools to face this new challenge head-on. The entrepreneurs who are going to be successful when all of this is over are the ones who embraced the unknown and kept going!

I hope all of my coronavirus resources, including these tips for advertising during COVID-19, have helped you. I’ll continue to post relevant content in the weeks ahead. Take care!

The Ultimate Windows Disk – How to Use Spotmau PowerSuite 2010 to Fix Your Windows




We are all familiar with this problem: we turn on our Windows PC and instead of the familiar boot screen we see nothing but a black screen with some kind of cryptic error message. Most PC users feel quite helpless in such a situation and do not know what to do. The following way shall give a few helpful tips on recovering or Windows PC that does not boot properly.

First of all, you should verify that the PC is actually connected properly, has power, and that all the basic hardware works properly. The hard disk should be revving up, and the LED lamps should be lighting up.

Also, you should be getting a picture on your monitor screen. If that is not the case, you should verify that the monitor cable is properly attached to the graphics card port and the monitor itself. Once you have done that, the next thing to worry about is whether you get to the BIOS screen. If you do not, then in all likelihood you have some kind of hardware issue – for example a problem with the RAM, or a mainboard error. If you can see the BIOS screen you should touch Del or some function key, for example, F8 or F10, to go into the BIOS and reset it to the default settings. If you have recently installed hardware or changed settings in the BIOS it is best to revert them to the original condition. Next, if you’re sure that the BIOS settings are okay, you should watch out for the error message that is a Windows is producing and when booting up.

At this stage, depending on what the error message actually is, you have a few choices. If the error message is related to the boot loader configuration, you probably have a good chance of fixing it by using one of the powerful Windows recovery software tools available nowadays, such as Spotmau Power Suite 2010. This is a complete software suite which can rightfully be considered the ultimate Windows boot disk. It contains tools for restoring the Windows boot section, repairing windows partitions, recovering lost passwords, retrieving erased data, and a good deal more.

The way you use the tool is by getting an image of the CD and creating a bootable CD which you then can watch your PC from and either recover your Windows system, or perform any other maintenance and repair tasks.

After booting from it, you see a menu with a selection of options. For recovering a Windows system without hardware problems, you can select the 3rd option from the top (recover Windows), and pick the version of Windows you have. The rest happens automatically.

Alternatively, you can use it to backup data from your system partition, if you do not have the original Windows CD handy, or retrieve a lost Windows administrator password.

Use AutoCorrect in Microsoft Word




AutoCorrect will:

· Correct common typing errors such as “teh” instead of “the”

· Capitalise the first letter of days of the week. So “Monday” is converted to “Monday”

· Capitalise the first letter of sentences

· Correct incorrect use of the Caps Lock key such as “sHOULD”

· Correct two initial capitals such as “SHould”

These options can be customised to fit you.

To open the AutoCorrect Options:

In Word 2003

Click Tools > AutoCorrect Options

In Word 2007

Click the Office Button > Word Options > Proofing > AutoCorrect Options

Check or uncheck the required options and click Ok

Add an AutoCorrect Entry

You can add an entry to the AutoCorrect dictionary. This is a fantastic feature to use to improve your productivity. It can greatly speed up data input and also help reduce spelling mistakes.

After adding an entry or changing the AutoCorrect options in Word, they are updated across all Microsoft Office applications improving your productivity when using Excel or Outlook also.

Let’s say I want to add Microsoft Office training to the dictionary so that whenever I enter mso into a Word document or Excel spreadsheet it automatically replaces the text with Microsoft Office training.

1. Open the AutoCorrect Options as mentioned previously depending on the version of Microsoft Word you are using

2. Enter mso in the Replace: box

3. Enter Microsoft Office training in the With: box

4. Click Ok

5. Click Ok again

Now whenever you enter mso into an Office application the text is automatically replaced with Microsoft Office training.

Preventing Automatic Replacement of Text

When Word replaces the text, a blue line appears below the first letter of the first word entered. If you point the mouse to this blue line a smart tag will appear providing AutoCorrect Options.

This tag allows you to stop Word automatically changing mso. This is useful when you need to enter the text mso. It may be somebody’s initials, an acronym, or the name of a project or company.

Click the AutoCorrect Options smart tag and select either Change back to “mso” or Stop Automatically Correcting “mso”.

This is useful but not particularly efficient. A good trick of the trade when using AutoCorrect is to precede the word to be replaced with a symbol. For example, instead of mso we could have used /mso or ?mso.

By using a set prefix for all your custom AutoCorrect entries, it will prevent the possibility of using the word mso in the future and AutoCorrect incorrectly replacing the word with Microsoft Office training.

Removing an AutoCorrect Entry

To remove an entry:

1. Open AutoCorrect Options

2. Enter the first few letters of the word in the Replace: box and select the word in the list

3. Click Delete

Pot CEO Offers $10k Bounty to Get Lebron to His Comic-Con Booth




BudTrader Exec is Determined to Show Lebron the BudTrader Experience and Ask the New Laker a Few Pointed Questions

SAN DIEGO, CA, July 16– BudTrader CEO Brad McLaughlin is setting his sights on throwing the most hype party experience imaginable at San Diego Comic-Con International. The cannabis tech entrepreneur will offer $10,000 to anyone who can get NBA superstar Lebron James to attend BudTrader Nerd Headquarters at this weekend’s convention.

In a statement, McLaughlin laid out very clear rules for his bounty on LeBron.

“You can’t kidnap him,” stipulates McLaughlin. “No, I mean you literally can’t. He’s 6’8″, 300 lbs, has a 40 inch vertical and he’s the greatest athlete of our generation. So we’re going to have to appeal to Lebron in other ways besides brute force.”

The second rule put forth by McLaughlin is that LeBron has to hang out at BudTrader Nerd Headquarters for at least 23 minutes. “No walk through!” says McLaughlin, “We want to get to know him and see what he’s all about. Is he that into us? Is he here to win titles? Or is he here to go to Magic Johnson’s ‘how to become a billionaire and own an NBA team’ private school? What we really want to know is: “is he just waiting for the time to run out, punching a clock, stuck in this messed up LA traffic just like the rest of us, until he can retire and cruise for 22 year old models at sky bar like every other retired guy in LA?”

Thirdly, McLaughlin says that he will allow Lebron to ‘turn himself in’ by showing up to BudTrader’s Comic-Con experience on his own. In this case, BudTrader will donate the $10,000 reward to a noble cause. McLaughlin suggests that LeBron consider putting the money toward what he considers to be ‘the most noble cause’, hiring an In-N-Out Burger truck to come to the BudTrader experience at San Diego Comic-Con and feed the attendees from SoCal – Lebron’s new fans. The NBA megastar just signed on to the Los Angeles Lakers in an incredibly hyped decision. “If Lebron is a Los Angeles Laker now, and an LA guy, he needs to know about In-N-Out burger damn it! We’re trying to win and NBA Championship here people!”

Next, McLaughlin lays out the fourth rule for his LeBron James bounty: No smoking out LeBron! “Not the first time we meet him, at least!” he adds, following up with some solid reasoning, “Magic Johnson, The Lakers and his management team aren’t gonna let him near us if they think we’re gonna smoke him out. All we need is for Lebron to test positive for THC and get suspended by the NBA because of BudTrader. I have enough problems right now so… No smoking out King James people! Wait until we win a Championship and then we’ll smoke with Lebron, Magic, Shaq, Kobe, Phil Jackson, Jack Nicholson and Rick Fox (I feel like since Rick Fox is a handsome dude, he’d be a good guy to have at the Championship after party sesh. Hot chicks probably follow him around and we don’t want the Championship after party to be a sausage fest.)”

BudTrader Nerd Headquarters is slated to be one of the most talked about events at Comic-Con, and is being touted as a live broadcast experience to rival even the big-budget studios and shows. “Our audience is going to be bigger than TV networks like TBS entire audience” McLaughlin said. The brand will host daily events like exclusive previews of movies and TV shows, video game tournaments (including a showdown between all-female professional gamers), celebrity interviews and live performances from a mystery top hip-hop star. The whole experience will be broadcast live across TV, radio, Twitch, and live stream in collaboration with local and national channels to beam the BudTrader Experience to millions of people. McLaughlin says the events that have been announced publicly so far only represent a fraction of the tricks BudTrader has up their sleeves to wow attendees of 2018’s Comic-Con International.

This will not be the first year that BudTrader has made a scene at Comic-Con. BudTraders infamous superyacht party of 2017 resulted in their controversial ejection after just two days. The Budtrader yacht was unceremoniously removed from the harbor in the middle of the night. This caused BudTrader to lose out on their planned Saturday extravaganza, along with tens of thousands of dollars in losses due to the cancellation. Last year, BudTrader’s presence at Comic-Con was covered by publications such as High Times, Times of San Diego, The San Diego Union Tribune and over 400 other news outlets.

BudTrader is the largest online cannabis marketplace, with platforms available in the 28 states where cannabis use is legal, as well as Canada and Puerto Rico. With over one-million people registered to their platform, BudTrader’s user base rivals that of industry giants Weedmaps and Leafly.

Pokemon Cards – The Right Way to Trade Them




There is a wrong way and a right way to trade Pokemon cards. Many people go about trading cards the wrong way and frustrate the person they just traded with, or end up distraught themselves. This happens all too often, yet most folks do not realize exactly why or how a bad trade occurs.

Whether the unfairly treated party realizes they were gypped at that current time or even just 10 minutes later, they most likely will not be able to do a trade back, as a majority Pokemon card players will not agree to that. That is why it is so important to know how to trade Pokemon cards correctly.

If you abide by the following five rules of Pokemon card trading, you will never again be caught on the wrong side of a deal.

1. Do Not Create Elaborate Deals

By this, I mean do not trade 20 cards for 1 or 2 cards. Try to keep your trades in ratios of 1 to 1. Some of the worst trades arise when one person has an extraordinarily rare card and the other party offers several dozen not-so-rare cards for it. One person in this deal is bound to be ripped off.

Now obviously there are some cards that are worth more than others of the same rarity, but the closer you can keep the trade to one card for one card, the better your odds are at receiving a fair deal.

2. Never Feel Forced

Do not feel as though you are obliged to complete a trade; if you do not feel comfortable about it, just pick up your cards and walk away. No one is forcing you to trade your Pokemon cards. Only do it if you feel good about the trade.

Even if you do feel confident about your trade you should still adhere to rule number 3, which is…

3. Ask for a Second Opinion

Ask one of your friends what they think about the trade. The person you are trading with should do the same. This is a great idea to make sure you two are not blatantly missing out on something. You may have forgotten that a certain card has recently risen in value, thus making an unfair trade.

The more people who weigh their thoughts on the trade, the more equal it is bound to be.

4. Trade With People the Same Age as You

Some of the most lopsided trades I have ever seen occur when an older individual trades with a younger person. The youngster often does not realize the value of their cards, and the older player tries to capitalize on that.

If you trade with people the same age as you, you are far less likely to be hustled.

5. Be Happy About the Trade

Even if you have established a fair trade, if you are not content about it, then don’t do it! Just because each of you are getting equal value does not mean the trade has to be completed. There may be sentimental value in your cards which cannot be compensated for.

Only complete the trade if you are utterly pleased with the proposed deal.

In closing, as long as you follow those five rules of trading Pokemon cards, you should never have an issue again. It is super simple to prevent a bad trade from occurring with this knowledge. Make sure to teach your friends these rules, so that they never fall into the trap of a bad trade again either.

Launching A New Product – Building Anticipation With Online Hype




Are you planning on launching a new product at some point in the very near future? There are many things that need to be taken into consideration throughout the process in order to ensure that you are able to receive the best available benefits and also create a product launch that is both exciting and fun for those that have been following the launch of your product. A few different strategies that you can use that will help you to launch an excellent product include the growing of a mailing list, announcing and promoting your product throughout the weeks leading up to your launch, and using the connections that you have made through networking to grow your internet marketing efforts and grow your online business. Taking your time to appropriately market the release of a product can help to ensure that you receive positive results in the end.

Grow a Mailing List

One of the best decisions that you can make is to grow a mailing list in the weeks leading up to the release of your product. This should be your main goal, and the capturing of the information needs to be front and center in the weeks leading up to the release of the product or service. You will find that really taking your time and creating an informational newsletter can really help you to ensure that you are growing a mailing list that is large, and allows you to ensure that you are able to notify those that are interested in what you have to offer as soon as the product becomes available. A mailing list makes sure that you can immediately get into contact with those that are interested in your product, and make as many initial sales as possible.

Announce and Promote Early

Under no circumstance should you be waiting to promote your product until it is nearly released. You need to make sure that you are able to begin promoting your product well in advance of the release. You have to make sure that you are able to evaluate the options that are available to you, and also begin creating a buzz for your project early on. Start by making sure that you are constantly promoting your products in the weeks and months leading up to its release, as soon as you are sure that you are able to generate buzz to the best of your ability. Of course, you will likely be promoting to individuals well in advance of the release, so if it is possible you should make sure that you are able to offer a pre-order option to interested individuals.

Network Early and Often

A product launch is always going to be much easier when you are able to network to the best of your ability leading up to the release. By networking early and often, you will make sure that you are receiving promotion from several different angles. You will find that networking early allows you to get information about your products posed on a variety of different websites. This will allow you to ensure that you have individuals with blogs and websites, with an active readership that trusts their opinion on a variety of different subjects, promoting your business and the release of your product. Guest posts and reviews on other blogs will make it easy for you to gain attention from individuals that will be interested in what you have to offer.

Market Features Individually

When you are releasing a product, particularly an online product that will have the features updated over time, announcing each of the features individually can be a helpful way for you to drum up hype and anticipation for the product. You will find that taking your time, evaluating which features are going to be the most interesting to those that you are playing with, and also making sure that you have a wide range of different features lined up, with the exact dates that you will be able to announce certain features, so that you can create your marketing materials well in advance of the release of the features. This allows you to ensure that you get the best possible results, and give your users a lot of information over a very short period of time.

Find Promo Opportunities

Throughout the release of your product; you have to make sure that you are seeking out as many different promotional opportunities as possible. By taking your time, evaluating all of the different options that you have available to you and also working to build new promotional opportunities, you will increase your exposure. Your goal should be to get your best marketing materials in front of the best suited audience, and in general in front of as many eyes as possible. Seek out different platforms such as social networks, classified advertising campaigns, new posts for information about your business, and also ensuring that you are able to receive the best possible results in the long term. There are many things that need to be taken into consideration throughout the process, but promotional opportunities are ridiculously hard to find if you are not actively seeking them out.

Guest Post

Guest posts are another very important aspect that needs to be utilized to the best of your ability. By being able to post articles on active blogs with readership about your business, you will find that they provide you with the best opportunity. Guest posts differ from other promotional opportunities greatly. However, they do allow you to ensure that you are vouched for by other individuals in your industry.

Weight Loss Menu – The Foods Asian Women Eat To Drop Inches And Lose Weight FAST!




The food you choose for your weight loss menu can have an immediate and dramatic effect on your ability to lose weight or not. All too often people choose the wrong food items after getting bad information, which leads to that dreaded “yo-yo” cycle of losing weight only to gain it back quickly later.

For centuries, Asian women have identified the key food items that help them lose weight and get skinny, even right after having a baby! And today we’re going to look at a selection of their picks that you can use to get shrink your waistline quickly without going hungry.

Weight Loss Menu – The Skinny Asian Way

A list of which are the best foods for a weight loss menu is something students in my fitness program request often. It helps them be selective when at the market, or when out at a restaurant and trying to decide on what to order, and it can even help their children learn how to enjoy foods that are good for them.

And while you’re not going to learn ALL of the ways Asian women get rid of stubborn fat from their belly and thighs in just a single short weight loss menu, you CAN pick up some tips that will allow you to get started on the road to a new you:

Catherine Cheng’s “Master Weight Loss Menu” List

First a single guideline: If at all possible, I want you to buy “organic” items, even if they’re a little more costly than the norm.

I know it can be a hassle, but the research coming out of major universities showing the damage that pesticides and genetic manipulation are causing among our children who are accidentally consuming them is very worrying.

Stick to organic when possible, and if you can’t, please be sure to wash everything very thoroughly once you get it home from the store as most of the contaminants are located in the skin or peels of the fruits and vegetables.

1. The right base items – I call lean protein a “base item” meaning I want you to make it the center or focus of your meals. It’s the biggest portion on the plate, let’s put it that way. Great sources of lean protein are skinless chicken, eggs, fish, beef, pork, soy, and tofu. Protein is your #1 weapon on the weight loss menu, even more important that vegetables, so make it a top priority.

2. The right vegetables –Keep a supply of pre-washed and sliced/shredded carrots, mixed greens, beets, broccoli, and lettuce on hand for fast salads that can really satisfy. You can also try both frozen and/or canned veggies if you have trouble keeping fresh items available, just be sure to rinse them well as they tend to have some added salt for taste.

3. The right fruits –They satisfy your cravings for sweets and loaded with disease-fighting nutrients. Best yet, they’re low calorie as well! Stick to berries (especially antioxidant-rich cranberries and blueberries), oranges, apples, bananas, and pears. Grapefruit is also a great pick for breakfast, try to get used to the taste.

4. The right condiments – You can really add nasty calories from picking the wrong ketchup and/or mustards for your meals, make sure to look at the labels of anything in a bottle that you buy and avoid those high in sugar. Better to go with things like honey, ginger, garlic, wasabi, or balsamic add-ons if you’re looking for flavor.

10 Tricks to Get Your Ex to Have a Change of Heart




Are you looking for a way to get your ex to come back to you after a break up? There are some tips and tricks you can use to get your ex to have a change of heart and return back into your open arms. Read below for ten common ways you should consider.

1. The first tip is just to let your ex think you are over the break up and moving on with your life with no problems. The idea is to remove the confidence in your ex because they think you can go on with your life without them.

2. If your ex is pinning the break up on you, agree with them. Take the heat for causing the break up whether it is true or not. This can take the steam out of them because they have nothing left to blame you for.

3. Try acting hot and cold towards your ex. At some times you can be friendly with them if need be and at other times come across as being aloof towards them. This technique will keep your ex guessing as to what your intentions are.

4. Maybe its time to change your looks. Get a haircut or new hair style. If you need to lose weight do so. Whatever it may be, do what you can to improve your looks which in turn will improve your outlook. This in turn will get your ex to wondering if they were holding you back from improving your life.

5. Don’t waste time getting back to living your life. Once your ex encounters you going about business as usual their ego will be bruised thinking they are no longer the center of your universe.

6. One way to get your ex to have doubt about the decisions they have made is to get their friends and family on your side. This will isolate them and force them to re-think their situation.

7. If you want to make your ex jealous try lightly flirting with someone in their presence. They will not take kindly to someone else being interested in you and want you even more.

8. Have control of your emotions. Do not let your ex pull any of these tricks on you, just ignore them. This will make their plan useless and put the power in your hands.

9. You can try to get a friend to go on a fake date with you. Doing so would make your ex jealous and have them trying to get you back.

10. Always be in a positive mood. Do not let your ex see you in a bad mood or looking down and out. You want to appear as if you are doing great and are happy with your situation.

The idea of using any or all of these tricks is to defend or reverse any strategy your ex may have, ultimately to get them back with you. Even if they have not thought of getting back with you these tips may get them thinking about you again.
