Pocahontas – The Noble "Savage"

Published

on

Pocahontas is the daughter of the Native American chief, Chief Powhatan. She is a strong and independent woman who helps lead the tribe alongside her father, and is very kind to everyone.

When the British come to Virginia, they treat the Indians like savages. Pocahontas meets John Smith, and tells him about the life of the Native Americans and how they treasure nature and that no one owns the land.

Through the song “Colors of the Wind”, she explains how everyone is equal despite the color of our skin, and how nature is important as well displaying the wisdom that she had learned over the years with her tribe. She tells how animals are her friends and how even the trees and the rocks need to be respected. John and Pocahontas fall in love, and John realizes her point. Unfortunately, the Indians and the British get into a fight, and Chief Powhatan tells them to stay away from the “White Skins”.

John tells the other settlers that there isn’t any gold where the Indians live, but he isn’t believed. The Indians begin to get ready to fight the settlers, and so she runs to tell John. Pocahontas and John are discovered by the Indians and John is taken to be executed. She convinces her father to let John free, but the British come and attack Chief Powhatan anyways. John saves the Chief and is sent back to Britain, he says his goodbyes with his love, who the other British call the “noble savage”.

MIG and TIG Welding

Published

on

By

MIG and TIG welding both use an electric arc to make the weld. Some of the major differences are that one process uses a continuously feeding wire, this is MIG. And with TIG welding you use long welding rods and slowly feed them into the weld puddle.

MIG welding is a very simple and easy process to learn compared to learning how to TIG weld. The technical names for these are metal inert gas (MIG), and tungsten inert gas (TIG).

A MIG welder works by using a continuously feeding spool of welding wire that burns, melts and fuses both the base and parent metals together. You can weld a variety of materials such as mild steel, stainless steel and aluminum.

A range of material thicknesses can be welded from thin gauge sheet metal right up to heavier structural plates.

TIG welding on the other hand is more commonly used for your thinner gauge materials. Items that are made with this process are things like kitchen sinks and tool boxes. The biggest benefit is that you can get your power down really low and not blow through the metal.

Pipe welding and other heavier tasks can also be performed, you just need to have a unit that is capable of putting out the amount of power that you need.

The main difference between MIG and TIG welding is that one method uses a continuously feeding electrode and is a very fast way of putting down welds. The other way is a much more fine and delicate welding technique.

The most versatile machine is the TIG welder as you can weld many different types of metals. The downside is that it is very slow. For anybody wanting to do some welding at home your better choice of machine to buy would have to be the wire feeding MIG welder.

How to Help Your Disorganized Child – Seven Tips For Better Organization

Published

on

By

It’s not just ADHD kids who are disorganized? Kids who don’t have ADHD sometimes can’t remember to bring homework home either. Can’t remember to take the homework back to school when they did bring it home. It’s not intentional. He really means to get his homework done. He just forgets. Maybe her school materials are poorly organized. Maybe he has poor time-management skills. With all the distractions bombarding kids today, it’s not surprising that they forget so much and are so unorganized.

Without some basic organizational strategies, kids do poorly in school and their grades plummet. Some kids end up cheating or lying–whatever it takes to survive school with a minimum of criticism and punishment. Disorganization and forgetfulness get in the way of success at school.

You can teach your child how to be more organized. Maybe you’ll even find some of these tips useful around your home.

Seven Tips to Help Your Disorganized Kid

1. Color code: Help your child organize his school books and notebooks by color-coding them. Use colored book covers, stickers, labels, stars, or markers with one color for each subject. You can also color code the books by adding colored stickers.

2. Clear book covers: Consider using clear book covers to cover books so that your child can always see the covers.

3. Locker organization: Help your child organize his locker. Brainstorm with him to come up with the best solution. Often locker organizers or locker shelves help a lot. Put morning  books on one shelf  and afternoon books on another, or math and science on one shelf, language arts and social studies on another, for example. Label the shelves.

4. Extra set of books: Keep an extra set of textbooks at home. Before you buy them, ask if the school can provide them. Check the web too for companies who rent textbooks.

5. Organizer: Help your child develop daily schedules. Some schools provide daily planners. If your child’s school doesn’t give out planners, you’ll need to buy one or a PDA (personal digital assistant) from an office-supply store. While you’re there, you and your child can look around at other products that help with organizing.

6. Structure: Offer to help your child organize her homework time. As soon as she gets home, go over the list of assignments due the next day as well as any long-term assignments. If you wait until later, it may be too late to get an assignment from a friend or a book from school. Help her decide which assignment she’s going to do first. Then help her figure enough time for each assignment.

7. Home organization: You and your disorganized kid need to decide on one place to put finished homework. One place to put everything that needs to go back to school including his lunch. One hook for his jacket. And keeping his room uncluttered helps also. Have him set a weekly schedule for cleaning and organizing his room. For some kids, they’ll need to do this every day for awhile until organization becomes a habit. Just as you did for his locker, find shelves and cubes to put things in. Color coding helps here also. You may need to help them at first.

Kids will do best at this new organization routine if it’s simple, and they’ve had a say in deciding what will work and what won’t. Disorganized kids can go overboard with color coding, labels, and stickers which only leads to more disorganization because it’s too complicated. They may need help in making it easy.

Being organized gives kids a sense of power and control over school and their lives. As they begin to feel good about themselves, they’ll start doing better in school.

Is Colleen Slater’s Blog Inferno Worth the Money?

Published

on

By

Colleen Slater, the self proclaimed 60 Minute Affiliate, is about to release her Blog Inferno system which claims to be the best niche marketing guide on the internet.

Ms Slater has put together a collection of articles, mind maps, templates and videos which she claims will help the average affiliate marketer increase their online income.

I was lucky enough to receive a preview of the Blog Inferno system to review exactly what has been put together and get the chance to see if it is worth its salt or if it is just another scam.

Now first up, I want to tell you that I like Colleen’s work as the 60 Minute Affiliate. She offers a large array of guidance and tips which will help niche marketers get ahead of the competition. She even offers free one on one coaching to those struggling to make the sales that they had initially hoped for.

Blog Inferno is a collection of these guides turned into one ebook, with some of the ideas expanded upon slightly. As with many affiliate marketing guides, a lot of the information contained within the book is already readily available at no cost elsewhere.

What Ms Slater does do is offer video tutorials for the struggling masses. If you have time and patience to watch step by step guide, and you are a visually oriented person, this may be a great thing for you to do.

Blog Inferno won’t get you website rankings in minutes, and it won’t make you sales within days. But it does offer some insights for those who are just starting out in the world of affiliate marketing.

If you really want to make some impact on the internet world – your money is best spent on Andrew Hansen’s Firepow. Firepow is a tool which will have your website getting top rankings on Google within hours, as well as some neat tricks that aren’t available anywhere else – not to mention support from the a community of successful online money makers – including Hansen himself, who is quick to respond and a pleasure to deal with.
