A variety of flat screen TV wall mounts can be found at home appliance stores or online. Wall mounts are important accessories as they can really increase your TV-viewing experience. If you get an incompatible TV wall mount or you fix one incorrectly, you may not have the best viewing experience and you don’t want to risk having your TV fall onto the floor and breaking. The following are some easy tips that can help you to find or repair a wall mount in the best possible manner.

Check Out the Specs

Before rushing to the store or clicking on the”add to cart” button, be sure that you understand the wall-mount specifications of your TV. They are usually mentioned in the user manual of your flat screen TV. The specifications of the TV wall mount that you buy or have should also be read thoroughly. The wall mount needs to match the screen size of the television.

Usually, a particular mount is ideal for holding a TV within a specified range of display size. By way of example, some wall mounts have a 26-50 screen size, which means these mounts are best for holding a TV screen within the size selection of 26 inches to 50 inches. Make sure that the weight capacity is more than the actual weight of the TV.

Flat TV screens come with pre-drilled holes on the trunk. Caps made of plastic or some other material occasionally cover these holes behind the TV. You need to remove these caps before mounting the TV. Use a screwdriver or a small knife to remove the caps. An important aspect here is that the space between the holes. These will be located in the corners of a square or a rectangle. The TV wall mount should have mounting holes in precisely the same distance.

You can find an idea about this distance from the VESA (Video Electronics Standard Association) standard. By way of instance, VESA 75 means the holes are in the corners of a square with a side 75 mm long. VESA 100/200 means the holes are at the corners of a rectangle with the sides 100 mm and 200 mm long. Check the VESA evaluation of your flat screen TV and make certain the VESA standard of the wall mount is compatible with that of the TV.

Cosmetic and interior decoration plays a role in finding the ideal place for mounting the flat screen TV. However, one has to give more significance to the viewing angle. You can see the best image when the TV display is at a direct, head-on angle. A sideways angle often spoils the image clarity.

The height of the mount is also an important factor. The TV needs to be set in a place slightly higher than eye level. You can find an perfect location after some trial and error. Additionally, when finding a place on the wall to set the flat wall mounts, you need to make sure it’s devoid of any kind of glare. That would be awful.

Take your time and you will be sure to be proud of your work. You will enjoy watching shows, movies and sports very quickly. Good luck with your job!

Bahamian History

Bahamas Sunset Pier Dock Sea Island Caribb

On July 10, 1973, the Islands of the Bahamas, became an independent nation, while, too, staying, as a part of the British Commonwealth. The nation began, with limited finances, etc, and small infrastructure. But it also, fortunately, began with a focus, vision, goals, priorities, and somewhat, visionary leadership. Sir Lynden Pindling was the George Washington, of the nation, and served as Prime Minister, for its first 25 years, of its existence. In the early 1980’s, when I was involved in managing and operating, a tourism industry, focused on the Bahamas, I had the joy of meeting, for the first time, this awesome individual. We had several conversations over the following, almost – two decades, and I developed a much greater understanding of what our Founding Fathers, and those of most countries, must have, to a degree, underwent. There were certain decisions made from the onset, which directed the Bahamas, in the future. These included: 1) Capping the Bahamian dollar to the United States dollar; 2) Mandatory education; 3) A parliamentary, democratic government; 4) An infrastructure program; 5) Commitment to employment; and, 6) a main emphasis on banking, tourism, etc..

1. Mission and vision of Founder: Since there are limited natural resources, and the ability to compete, in terms of exporting products, is limited. This meant focusing on friendliness, service, and bringing tourists, to return, repeatedly. There were many challenges, but when one finds, the number of amazing restaurants restaurants, shops, and so on, and the short – life of the nation, is inspirational!

2. How mistakes/ challenges are managed: Things did not always go, as easily, as the government hoped. From the mid – 1980’s, the Cable Beach Hotel, and then, Crystal Palace, were built, in addition to several other significant projects, but many of these, were negatively affected, by the downturn in the world economy. As opposed to give – up, or move, negatively, they faced the challenges, admitted there were issues and challenges, but continued, in a focused way, towards a better future. When the greatest project, ever intended, for the Caribbean region, was planned, and began, about a decade ago, hopes were high, but the first developer faced economic difficulties, there were many legal battles, etc, but finally, the $4.5 billion, Baha Mar Resort opened, and after, visiting last week, exceeded anyone’s expectations!

3. Encourage foreign investment: When the Bahamas, became a nation, one of the principal objectives, was to ensure qualified Bahamian employees, received the bulk of the jobs, in any project, etc.. That country recognized, the need to promote foreign investment and investors, however, to also, protect citizens. Major projects such as the Atlantis, the Towne, the Baha Mar, along with many others, followed these principles. Many banks and nations, have a substantial economic presence on those Islands, such as: China; the United States; Canada; United Kingdom; etc..

4. Infrastructure needs: Roads have been designed, and improved, constantly, throughout the nation’s history! In a country, representing a variety of races, and nationalities/ ethnicities, there is a relevantly low amount of racial biases, etc..

5. Overcome challenges: This country has proceeded, and overcome many obstacles, because it proceeds, with an attitude and attention, o challenges, rather than problems!

If the Bahamas, in its brief history, can be, where it’s, and, although, still having to confront many future challenges, shouldn’t all of us learn some lessons? I’ve witnessed many changes in the nearly 40 years, I have visited, and have to admit, I am motivated by the progress, so far!

laser weapons for future battles

Blaster Laser Gun Space Blaster Blaster Bl

 

The Space Race and Cold War was in full blossom and coming to an end, mainly because of the USSR running out of cash and economically imploding attempting to keep up. Back then, we didn’t have laser weapons, but desired themmuch was a bluff, but soon, these laser weapon systems will be everywhere and used for all sorts of uses. Let’s talk shall we?

Not long ago, I was interviewed about the future of innovative laser weapon systems. Daniel the interviewer asks;”Do you believe we will soon see laser weapons? Why?”

Yes, and in the US we’re really there, now on the challenge of miniaturization. Perhaps building a little laser system the size of a small refrigerator to fit into the bomb bay of an F-35 or F-22 and I don’t have any doubt that will happen within 5-10 years, great for our allies who purchase our stealthy F-35, but awful for all adversaries. We’re focusing on a smaller system mounted on truck and Humvee, we have proven concept.

In the USA we also have boat mounted laser weapons devices for protection also. In the long run perhaps even a hand-held device, not like a Star Trek Phaser, but more like a bigger version of an assault rifle. There are still challenges with these types of weapons like air-density and the type of laser in airborne applications. Also the power needed, especially in the case of man-portable units. Another challenge is that the time required on goal to get a good kill when using lasers to shield against swarm attack.

Laser weapons do not make sense for every market in the battlespace or future battlespaces, but they’re viable nevertheless. It could be the science fiction loving minds of researchers or our love for Star Wars that has been guarantee the funding for such things. But high-tech weapon systems merely for the sake of it, makes no sense. Cash strapped nations should consider costs of such systems, and they will.

The US has many allies who would like to have those systems, and BAE and others are working on systems of their own now.

Luckily, these systems are hard to engineer, hard to produce, and hard to get right – but people are the smartest of the planet’s primates, and every nation with an advanced military has rounded up their best 150 IQ, Human+ scientists to work on such projects. For now however, it’s a matter of getting the most bang (zap) for the dollar.

Surviving the end of the world

Mask, Post Apocalyptic, Danger, Doomsday

This week Pakistan declared that when we, the U.S. ever pulled a stunt like the one we pulled the week earlier, we would be in big trouble. What is that mean? Pakistani D-Day on a beach south of Los Angeles? Probably not. I guess they’re referencing their nuclear aresenal. Yes, Pakistan has nuclear weapons. They probably don’t have a delivery system that can drop Nuclear-grade Weapons directly on top of us, but perhaps they do. Maybe? You really can never tell. Especially if someone’s thinking outside the box.

I believe a lot of us consider that. Kids who grew up under the threat of an imminent Soviet First Strike. Everything doesn’t get killed outright. In reality a lot of stuff survives. Major metropolitan areas may be destroyed but there is a lot of an in-between. People have thought about this so much that there are even games like Fallout and Metro 2033 that imagine the big what if of life after Nuclear War. Ther’s a genre of fiction named Post Apocalyptic Fiction, or PA fiction. You’ll find it right next to the zombie books.

I think one thing everyone can agree on in this scenario is that society, national and international, will collapse for awhile. It’s happened before. Think about the Dark Ages. Most do not expect much beyond the most powerful i.e. motorcycle gang, local warlord types maintaining control over a limited area the size of state a town. Society collapses pretty fast when people have firearms and resources are scarce. Especially when there’s no recognized authority figure to enforce social contracts you’re probably looking at some hard times what with the bike gang and all.

So let’s say your one of the few who create it. You’re far enough away from the devastation which you may collect some supplies and endure. But what abilities do you require? I have a friend who spends his life training for the apocalypse. He is constantly teaching himself new skills and knowledge so that he will in fact be prepared in case of. . .whatever. He is not crazy. In fact it’s really only his own syllabus as he continues to improve himself post-college. It is how he spends his weekends.

And maybe it’s not so startling. Society goes sideways pretty quickly. Whether it is a flood. An earthquake. The government can’t pay its bills. Even when you’re on vacation and the country you are staying in collapses economically. These skills could come in handy.

A list of things you may want to start learning. Danger abounds. Stuff happens.

Learn to purify water. Get comfortable with understanding how to find and identify drinkable water. Chances are the stores will be looted and vending machines run on power. But there’s a crowbar for that.
Learn how to shoot a gun. Guns are complex pieces of equipment. From the security to the cleaning and maintenance aspect, guns can be complicated. Not all ammunition matches all guns. Some guns perform specific actions. Taking a basic gun safety course is a skill even those who oppose firearms should think about. The truth is, because of their very nature, firearms require a healthy amount of respect. Plus you might want to eat something.
Which brings us to another skill. Field dressing an animal. Sure you can take an animal and eat it. However, you may make yourself sick. An animal has to be field dressed until it could be skinned and then prepared for dinner. What’s field dressing? It mainly involves removing the bladder and some other parts so the meat doesn’t get infected with waste and feces. Weird huh?
What do you do if you get sick or hurt? A course in basic first aid is probably great no matter what. A friend may not go into shock as soon as they see downtown being burned to the ground, but they may have a heart attack at a restaurant or during a fight. Understanding CPR and other first aid skills is likely handy now or following the fall of society.
The next skill is’a choose your own adventure’ skill. Here you might want to have a craft. Sewing, cooking, metal work, tool making and so forth. Being handy in a craft based skill generally allows a certain amount of familiarity at working with your hands and problem solving. Plus if society does start to rebuild your job at writing code might not be there for another hundred years. Understanding how to bake or make leather goods is something people will exchange goods with you . See they were right in camp once you learned to make leather wallets!
There are quite a few other skills you can learn. The majority of them end up being fun and you will probably never ever have to use them in an emergency, but they’re good to have. You can justify learning to sail and other experience skills in the interest of being ready.

THE OLD MAN AND THE WASTELAND is avaible on Kindle, Smashwords and NickColeBooks.com

I have thought about this subject and survival skills for quite a long time. In the course of my research for the novel I learned about how to live in the desert, flora an fauna of the South West and how to create traps. So there’s a lot of things you can do with this apocalypse knowledge. Look at making this the year you attempt to learn at least one ability you may need if everything goes Ka-Boom.

The Unconscious Mind

Face Soul Head Smoke Light Sad Thoughts Mi

How can the head get programmed in the first place?

The events in our early years have the best influence over us in many instances. If we received strong ideas which came at a time when we did not have the capacity to critically analyse what we were being told, we would have accepted the ideas without question.

Many of our most deeply held beliefs come from our parents and our culture. Even our grandparents have brought their heritage into our lives in some way.

As we grow older, we develop the ability to be critical of new ideas and concepts. This becomes a filter to the subconscious mind. However, we often still carry old, outdated ideas about money, life, work and relationships with us from our youth.

If our parents struggled financially, by way of example, there’s a strong change that we developed some negative thoughts around money. This can become a belief and hold us back in life once we want to move forwards. If we have picked up some negative emotional baggage around finances, you can bet that they’ll be holding you back from making more money.

But how can we change these ideas, if they are rooted in our subconscious mind, from view? One answer is to start observing how you talk and think about the subject you are trying to change in your life. What do you say about money, work and yourself? Your thoughts around money will lightly stem from your beliefs about money. In case you have a negative impression from your childhood around money, you’re probably creating a blockage. To change this, you can track it out and quit giving it more energy.

For example, if your rhetoric about money is something like”You must work hard for money”, you can replace it for”money comes easily and often”.

Think about how often you have repeated to yourself or someone your previous view on money or about what you will need to do to make it. Through the years, this becomes a belief that you cling to as if your life depended upon it. But what if it was a lie? Developing a new belief will take a while. You want to counteract your previous belief by copying your new affirmation over and over.

You can also use meditation to learn how to quieten your mind. This can have a two fold benefit. Firstly you can notice your inner dialogue much better. By watching your mind, you can see precisely how you continually speak to yourself. This inner dialogue feeds into your subconscious mind and creates the cornerstones of your belief system over time. Listen to what you say closely in the event you want to change things in your life.

Your self image too, is responsible for lots of your thoughts about what life offers you. Self image is a powerful focus for your unconscious mind. It controls how you think about yourself. If you consciously want something, but you don’t believe it’s possible, your unconscious belief will prevail.

Or, in the event that you consciously want something but don’t believe you are worth it, you are going to find ways to sabotage your conscious attempts to prove yourself right. Then, you’ll justify not achieving your desired outcome in some way which agrees with your self image and prevailing mental attitudes.

This is the reason why reprogramming the unconscious mind can be so powerful. Your subconscious mind has a large part to play in your life’s choices and outcomes.

Anger Originates Where?

Free stock photo of wood, black-and-white, fashion, man

Deep within our mind we have triggers that closed down logic and common sense and take over our brains with anger. We have all felt it and at times it begins with fear or jealousy. If it’s permitted to intensify, it becomes anger that may cause the death of others, both or suicide. With many instances of the scenario in recent times it’s important to comprehend how and why this occurs.

The main point in a number of these instances is revenge. The emotion tripping that is a feeling of loss and feelings of hate towards and punishment for a perpetrator.

In the past month or so in Australia we have seen a grandfather shoot dead his whole family before killing himself. While this has shocked the nation it’s followed by a father who murdered his two teenaged children before turning the gun on himself.

Both these instances followed custody battles in court where the two guys lost out. In the event of the father he combined a shooting club to acquire a license to get guns. That happened weeks or even months ahead.

In the event of this grandfather there were other indications as he became more violent as the end approached. The court result might have had little to do with his final action but there’s signs of jealousy or fear going out.

There are many killings which aren’t associated with court outcomes, like when a spouse is killed by their ex or current lover. The reasons aren’t always apparent but most are motivated by jealousy and or fear, particularly if there’s a break-down in the connection.

The question is how can one avoid reaching the point of committing murder or becoming a victim of a killer? Every situation is different and each outcome is equally unpredictable. Girls, however, are more vulnerable since they’re the weaker of the two. The solution must, therefore, lie at the signals exhibited.

It’s very likely that one who is planning this outcome has mood swings and other things that point to a change in their thinking. Although it’s not possible to provide positive answers the ideal strategy is to encourage you to think things through rather than act due to the force inside that blocks out common sense and logic.

Alcohol and panic attacks

On The Street, Road, Street, Space

When people feel depressed, they often turn to alcohol to temporarily forget their problems. The same thing happens when folks encounter anxiety. But, did you know that experiencing stress, panic attacks and alcohol are all related?

Some sufferers turn to alcohol in an attempt to self-medicate or to reduce the signs of the disorder. This greatly complicates the person’s life and ability to seek suitable treatment.

Rather, the consumption of alcohol, while not necessarily a cause for anxiety attacks, does seem to aggravate them.

Alcohol is a vasodilator, which makes people feel hot and sweaty. Due to this, alcohol can lead to a panic attack in reaction to increased stimulation, particularly for those whose anxiety or anxiety attacks are brought about by heightened sensitivity to bodily stimulation and physiological reactions.

Research has proven that alcohol addiction relates directly to cravings and irritability. These can spark a panic attack. Another study has shown that alcohol use is a significant predisposing factor towards being anti-social in kids. Alcoholism is associated with dampened activation in brain networks responsible for emotional processing.

People today think that alcohol initially helps social phobia or anxiety symptoms. But, with longer term alcohol misuse, it can often aggravate social phobia symptoms and can lead to panic disorder to become worse during alcohol intoxication and particularly during the alcohol withdrawal syndrome.

Even moderate drinking can lead to recoil anxiety syndromes and sleep disorders. Someone who is experiencing the poisonous effects of alcohol won’t gain anything from other therapies or medications because they don’t target the root cause of the symptoms, which is alcoholism.

When the effects of alcohol wear off, the body becomes in a miserable state. A bunch of these episodes can mean having anxiety disorder. Panic disorder is described as the abrupt and recurring sequences of acute fear together with physical symptoms that may include chest pain, heart palpitations, Wildlife Control, shortness of breath, dizziness or abdominal distress.

Too much consumption of alcohol can be among the primary causes of repeated panic attacks. The depressing effect alcohol consumption can cause someone to linger over undesirable emotions and stress. These can cause their panic attacks.

If one can’t absolutely eliminate alcohol, it is best to reduce alcohol intake. Additionally it is crucial to understand what the relationship is between one’s panic episodes and alcohol consumption. Rather than asking your physician for drugs, try to evaluate your habits. Do you always drink caffeine? Are you an alcoholic?

Are you stressed all the time and easily angered? Slowly eliminate 1 factor after another, so you can eventually rule our our panic attacks. Steer clear of cigarettes and first and foremost, have a moderate use of alcohol.

Did you know this about the Human body?

Anatomical Anatomy Body Gut Health Human MDid You Know?

Our bodies need a lot of nutrients to perform the work they have to in order for us to maintain a standard level of Bee Removal Orlando health. What are some of these daily functions?

1. 103, 680 times on average daily.

2. Our lungs breathe out and in approximately 15 times plus in 1 minute. That’s 900 breaths in 1 hour and about 21,600 breaths per day.

3. We have on average 2 reasonably sized meals a day that the digestive system must breakdown into usable energy supplies.

4. Our sensory organs are in continuous use.

5. Our kidneys and urinary systems flush out unwanted products.

6. We sweat when we exercise.

7.

8. We have an internal system of hormones which are responsible for many internal functions including cell development, reproductive patterns and cell reproduction.

9. The skin is your body’s largest organ.

10. The liver is considered the 2nd largest organ after the skin and weighs approximately 2kg in an adult.

Our bodies are working constantly: night and day. There are an enormous quantity of physiological processes occurring while we’re awake and while we sleep. Our diet is the capacity to provide our bodies with the nutrients it needs for these tasks. A balanced diet is one that includes all of the nutrients you need, that is it contains the right number of proteins, vitamins and minerals, carbohydrates, enzymes and fibre.

Pollutants, Chemicals and Bacteria

Our bodies have to process these also, as we breathe them in or digest themthe good and the not-so-good.

· Cigarette smoke.

· Bacteria & germs.

· Chemicals from make-up, hair products and skin products.

· Food chemicals & preservatives.

· Farm pesticides in the air or in food.

· Artificial growth compounds in plant produce.

· Compounds from medications and chemical solutions.

Finding the Correct Balance

Our bodies are working continuously, the internal organs are diverse in function and frequently complex in procedure. Our diets are supposed to contain the nutrients and materials we will need to be certain that our bodies perform their activities to provide us with energy and health.

However, it’s not always that easy, there may be other factors that intercept, for example hereditary conditions. And it is also true that this is just a single equation in the many health formulas which are in existence or that will come into existence. However, it is one which may be user-friendly. It is one that allows each of us to have a look at their own health and weigh up the toxins we take in with the nutrients we provide to our bodies.

The Health Equation: More Nutrients than Toxins

Providing the body with more nutrients than poisons creates a more healthy equation and herein lies a great task. Let’s compare the nutrients we supply to our bodies as favorable defence-building compounds.

On the opposite side, toxins are like an enemy into the human body’s defence mechanisms, they invade and behave as unwanted cells. The body’s defence system reacts to toxins, it works hard to deactivate them and then eliminate them. But what if there are a lot of toxins for the immune system to handle? Then the equilibrium goes out and our health condition declines.

If the game becomes taking in enough nutrients to keep our bodies healthy; to maintain a pro-active immune system that is not overloaded and to maintain the balance of nutrients and toxins in check, we then give our bodies the helping hand they need. Our bodies are a natural system and nature offers many varied and wonderful food sources, for us to benefit from and for us to learn from also.

Fun facts about skateboarding

People, Man, Skate, Board, Sport, Hobby

There are some fun as well as interesting skateboarding facts out there that you may not be aware of. The very first skateboard was released in 1950 and it was an immediate hit. However, it featured a handle bar just like scooters do now. It took several years until they were made without this part of it to have the basic style that we are knowledgeable about today.

While skateboarding is well known across the world, it might surprise you to learn that more than half of all skateboarders are in California! This is due to many things including the love of surfing there. Skateboarding is quite similar in nature with the exception that one occurs in the water and the other takes place on property. Since the weather is nice year round in California, it is also a sport people are able to get involved in any time of the year. California is also one area that promotes skateboarding rather than making it difficult to enjoy in certain locations.

There are less than 500 skateboarding parks located in the United States. Many of them have just been constructed within the past 10 years. One reason for the growth is because of the information about how kids will need to be motivated to work out more. Another reason for them is that many communities want to offer their youth a place to have fun without the use of alcohol or drugs.

However, they are extremely expensive to construct. Normally, it is going to cost $40 per square foot to construct one. Many communities justify it though by saying it retains youth from engaging in negative behaviors. The price of the law enforcement, courts, and fixes from these types of behaviors will be far more than paying for a skating park.

Did you know that skateboarding is in the top 10 sports events around the world? The position for it moves a few spots either direction annually. Right now it sits at #6 which is something to be very proud of when you think about all of the other types of sports that could fill up these top 10 positions.

Exercise with pogo sticks

Image result for pogo sticks

A shocking statistic is that 80 percent of parents believe their children are getting enough exercise but actually less than 10% actually do!

This lack of exercise has been caused partly by the rise of the”playstation civilization” which means children just don’t go out and perform any more. This has caused a major rise in childhood obesity and related illnesses.

The problem can be persuading your children that exercise is fun and can be enjoyed. In fact, many adults would benefit from being taught this lesson too!

Volcano Euruption

Image result for mount kilauea

The majestic Mount Kilauea on the Big Island of Hawaii is a shield volcano which began erupting in 1983 and hasn’t stopped Wilton Manors Wildlife Removal. Located in the famous Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Kilauea’s current on-going eruption draws its lava from 60 km in the earth, through the volcano’s own internal plumbing system. The fiery molten ooze explodes from the tip of the volcanic cone (called”Pu’u’O’o” meaning”high point on the skyline”) and cascades 11 km down the volcanic surface (or”Pulama Pali”) to the Pacific Ocean. This breathtaking image of black stone surface, orange flame, rollicking sea waves, and the smoky volcanic fog that surrounds this natural wonder is an absolute must-see for anybody who visits the Big Island.

Mount Kilauea’s first known eruption was probably about 300,000 to 600,000 years ago; and besides the eruption that began in 1983, it has erupted 34 times since 1952; these eruptions add about 40 acres of new land each year, explaining the moniker”Big Island,” which if measured from the ocean floor is higher than even Mount Everest. Hawaiian folklore is replete with stories of Pele, the Hawaiian goddess of fire, volcanoes, violence, lightning, and dancing, who lives at Mount Kilauea (and was, incidentally, cast as a villainess in DC Comics’ 1990s name,”Superboy”). Legend has it that due to a familial squabbles in a house with more 15 siblings, Pele escaped from her home in Kuaihelani and arrived at the Big Island’s Mauna Loa. Endowed with great powers by the Fire God, Lono-makua, Pele was famous for her deep love and rage towards her family and her many love affairs, also oftentimes marked by rage: many of the young mortals she seduced were not lucky enough to escape the fistfuls of molten lava she hurled at them during her fits of jealousy and anger.

Even after the old faith was abolished in 1823 from the missionary, Reverend Ellis, locals continued to worship and pay homage to the goddess Pele, making offerings of flowers, fruit, and fish to soothe her fury and to thank her for her generosity in enlarging the great land of Hawaii with her perennial eruptions. It’s believed that the perennial lava flow from Kilauea can pave a road three times round the earth!

Today visitors from all over the world can come to pay homage to the passionate Pele and her fiery home of Mount Kilauea. Ground tours offer travelers an opportunity to really walk alongside the vents of Kilauea and even learn a little bit of the volcano’s history. Some helicopter tour companies will even hover over the opening of Kilauea, providing visitors with awe-inspiring aerial views of the volcanoes.
