When marriages start to become a little bit rocky, the parties involved may either stay calm and approach the situation in very subtle manner or they may panic like as if the whole world is on fire and about to become ashes. Nonetheless, panic or no panic you still need to do something about and not wait for your marriage to become a failure. When you start to see tall tale signs that your marriage may be failing, you need to sit down and talk. One of the most common recommendations towards addressing a marriage that might be failing is go see a marriage counselor. That is what some people claim is the most straightforward way in saving a failing marriage. But is it really that effective?
In understanding the facets of saving a failing marriage, there truly is nothing wrong with seeing a licensed marriage consultant and asking him or her about advice on how the solidity of the marriage’s foundation can be restored. In fact, some may work but then some may not. The very first thing that any couple should do when they sense a drift in their marriage’s passion is to sit and down and talk. In short, hear each other out. Sometimes one party may feel that the other party is responsible but in reality, the fault is with them. Marriage is about giving each other equal footing and not letting one party be the dominant voice. This is that one time where you have get rid of your ego and have an open ear and mind for everything. Find out what you have been doing wrong and make a steadfast commitment that you will change it. The same should go for your partner. Compromise and set expectation with yourself and your partner. In the eventuality, that you cannot work things out by just sitting down and talking like civilized people, you need to see someone who can help you and that’s when the marriage counselor comes into the spotlight. Remember, both of you need to be 100% decided that you want the marriage to work. The absence of one’s commitment to make the marriage work will result to nothing except the dissolution of the marriage.
Last but not the least, always put God as the center of your life and pray for guidance. Saving a failing marriage can never be complete without a little divine help from the Man above.
Internet Marketer Appeals for Good Samaritans of the World to Help Philippines
Internet marketer Joel Escol, who is based in the Philippines, is calling for good Samaritans of the world to come out and help the country, recently hit by one of the world’s worst typhoon Haiyan.
Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda in the Philippines) almost mapped out the entire Visayas Region from the Philippine map, 10,000 Filipinos were feared dead, destruction of properties and agriculture could also reach to billions of dollars and millions of survivors became homeless as a result of the devastation.
Experts have reported the recovery and rebuilding efforts would take the country at least 2 years. The level of destruction is great and the country is now in worst situation. Rescue teams are currently digging debris looking for more dead bodies. Since its third week today but some areas still have stinking smell which the United Nations feared could trigger epidemic diseases if not addressed properly by the Philippine government.
“My hometown Cagayan de Oro was also hit by typhoon “Sendong” two years ago and I knew the feeling of losing your homes, loved ones, relatives and friends. Sendong wrecked havoc in my hometown that resulted to the deaths of over a thousand people, destroyed millions of properties, and left several thousands of people homeless. “
YOU ARE LUCKY
Many people are lucky this tremendous suffering didn’t happen to their family so that he is urging people of the world, especially the “good Samaritans”to help. I still believe there are a lot of people with good hearts. “Please help us. Help the Philippines.”
“We hope to visit them on Christmas Day and bring truckloads of rice. If this would happen, then this will be the happiest moment of my life. So, I am really knocking at the hearts of so many good people of the world who are blessed with abundance in life, to support this campaign, and together let us touch lives,” he added.
THIS PROJECT MATTERS
Millions of people around the world would be able to help in their own little ways and that’s why it matters most if your small act of generosity could be joined together to make things happen. It can feed the hungry stomachs of hundreds of typhoon victims.
“Happy are those who can feed the hungry and help the less fortunate because they will also receive tenfold of the blessings from the Lord.”
BUY HAIYAN MEMORABILIA ARTWORKS
To support his campaign, Escol also hold his second Modern Artworks Exhibits from November 27 up to December 27, 2013, and this time it will be an online exhibit, so that it can b viewed by many art collectors of the world who also have the heart to give and become a blessing and inspiration to others.
“You will receive this benefit if your donation ranges from $300-500. The artworks are framed and will be shipped to your address. Consider this as your Christmas gift to the typhoon victims. Remember that while you celebrate lavish xmas parties, a lot of typhoon victims in the Philippines have suffered much from hunger and they need your help. Make a difference now and make yourselves a hero in your own rights.
An American exchange student who is currently enrolled at a university in Beijing is looking for crowd funding sources to fulfill his dream of producing an independent documentary of an exchange student in China.
The upcoming movie will be lead by Michael himself according to Agata Fornasari, also one of the lead stars of “The Exchange Student.” The said independent film is currently filming in Beijing and other places in China.
“I’m Michael Baptiste and it’s my great dream to release an independent film about my actual life as a student in Beijing University. I come from a university in Florida but my passion to travel abroad ignited me to start this mission of producing my very first independent film.” The reason I’m writing you this letter is to ask you for your support in this massive moment that is in the works.
You see, I’ve been studying as a college student for several years – and during my studies it was always my dream to travel to another country to see what life was like there.
I even got depressed and had to see the school therapist to confess that I was down about not being able to travel the world – true story!
Then one day an idea hit me, and I decided to risk everything and come to China to study abroad for four months. After I made a decision to come abroad it was a roller coaster journey that I began to record and capture with my iPhone 4. I went through emotional pitfalls, I hit emotional peaks, and I even had to raise more than $10,000 through scholarships and support just to get here.
Fornasari said it was really a dream come true for Michael who is willing to risk everything to fulfill his dream of going to China as an international exchange student.
“I’m sure many students will enjoy watching as well as people in the academe as this documentary film is all about the life of students who went to other countries to study and discover the different cultures,” Fornasari said
Gardening is one of the best forms of exercise any person can have. It does not only make you fit and healthy but it also relieves stress, beautifies your garden and makes your plants and flowers healthy.
But in doing any gardening work, you need a gardening tool, depending on the work that you will do. These tools can surely help you do the work much faster and easier.
A gardening tool can be an equipment used to trim stems, branches and any parts of plants. These are the tools used in planting, doing land preparation for planting or any important works in the garden.
A gardening tool can either be used manually or powered by gas or electricity.
A particular gardening tool is used in a specific work in the garden. But there are tools that are used in multiple garden works such as hand pruners, pruning shears, grass shears and saws. Other tools used in the garden are rakes, spades, forks, shovels, hand trowels, hand cultivators, garden hoes, lawn mowers, hedge trimmers, chainsaws, mini tractors, leaf blowers, lawn aerators and leaf sweepers.
Lawn mowers are the first power tool that are used and have become popular among gardeners.
But in all work in the garden, a gardener must wear the correct clothing and accessories to prevent possible accidents. Like when using chainsaws, gardeners must wear eye glasses to protect the eyes from sawdust and ear pads to protect the eardrum from possible injury. Chainsaws produce loud noise, which is harmful to the ears. A work helmet is also important to protect the head from falling branches or stems and work gloves to prevent abrasion to the hands
When choosing a gardening tool, the most important thing you have to consider is the materials used by the manufacturer, if the tool is durable, if it is of top quality, can stay sharp even with heavy-duty use, can last long and if the manufacturer provides a lifetime warranty for the product. For the tool to stay sharp even with heavy-duty use, choose those that are coated and are resistant to rust.
For quality products, consider buying in companies with good reputation and are known to provide dependable and long-lasting gardening tools. You can also ask your friends or relatives for recommendations on where they buy their best gardening tools. Most often, recommendations and good reviews work best in choosing top quality equipment and tools.
Cutting or trimming trees is not an easy work since this is very risky and might endanger the life of the person doing the job. This, if he is not trained enough to do the cutting or is not equipped with the right tree tools for the specific work.
Before cutting or trimming trees, the right tree tools should be readily available. These are the tools that are suited in a particular cutting work.
Cutting trees involves climbing hence the person doing the job must invest on different kinds of climbing ropes.
Ropes come in different sizes and the right size depends on the weight of the person and the thickness of the tree parts that needed to be cut.
Some ropes are coated with urethane which makes it resistant to abrasion while some are made to be shock absorbent.
Aside from ropes, other tree tools needed include rigging gears, the right climbing clothes and other accessories.
Among the rigging gears needed are snap hooks, single or double pulleys, quick link, single or double pulley ascender, wire or screw gate, single up to triple lock carabiner, double or single swivel, hook auto lock, a carabiner eye and a forged ring. You might also need a steel rigging knife for emergency cutting work.
In choosing rigging gears, consider those that are made from stainless steel which are more durable and won’t get rust easily.
The kinds of pulleys available depend on the sizes of the ropes to be used. Some pulleys can accommodate ropes as thick as 16mm.
Other accessories needed are chains, lanyard, a rope back pack, a throw bag, tree sling and adjustable chain sling.
But the most important tree tools you need to have are climbing gloves, a work helmet and the right clothes that are comfortable to wear. Climbing a tree is definitely not comfortable when you’re wearing tight pants and long sleeve polo!
Cutting or trimming trees can be so much fun and easy if you use the right tree tools, particularly the correct clothes. Just remember that safety is the most important aspect of any garden work.
Choosing the correct tree cutting tools for your trimming job is not easy since there are dozens of tools offered in the market, all which claim to be of top quality and can make your cutting job easy.
If you still don’t know what tools to use for your cutting job, try axes and hatchets.
Axes are tree cutting tools that can give precise cutting for different kinds of trees. They come in different sizes, depending on the size and the thickness of the branches of trees to be cut.
Making use of the internet to earn is definitely the in-thing today as hundreds of people are now getting huge money from it. And one way to make money through the web is internet marketing, which is now getting popular among web fanatics.
Getting started in internet marketing is easy and absolutely free. You don’t have to shell out money to start your own business — at least for a start since as you go along, you will need to spend money, to make money.
Here are some suggestions on effective internet marketing:
Study the business thoroughly. Your commitment to learn all what it needs to be learned in internet marketing is one sure way to success. You can’t be successful without learning even the basics of internet marketing. The one basic area that you must need to learn first is search engine optimization or SEO. You cannot be successful
online if you don’t know the basics of SEO, unless you choose to outsource it. To know about SEO, join the 30 Day Challenge or learn from various websites. There are free trainings available but you need to share a part of your time to learn all.
Choose a niche and domain name. Do an extensive research about money making niches that you can try and choose a good domain name for your website. These are two key factors in effective internet marketing and can either make or break your first attempt to make money online. For money making niches, consider the competition. Look for something that is in demand but not so competitive.
Come up with good articles for your website. It is important that you put articles in your website so you must come up with good articles that are free from typographical errors. The best article directory to begin with is Ezine. Google and read a few good articles in the website and make your own. Never copy the articles but you can
use the style of the writers and how they came up with their stories. Learn from their ideas. Coming up with good articles is one way of promoting your site and your products.
Create your own website. If you prefer a blog, you can create your own at Blogger. But if you prefer a full-blown website, you can create your own free at weebly.com or freewebs.com. First-timers can easily make their own blog or website since this is easy to learn. However, if you find it confusing, go to youtube.com and search for tutorial
videos that can provide step-by-step instruction on how to create a blog or website. If you have the money, you can buy a domain name at wordpress.org and pay for web hosting at $20. But it’s better if you try first the platforms that are free as a test and buy later a domain if you desire.
There are many ways to do effective internet marketing aside from the ones mentioned above. Some ideas include building a list, website promotion, video marketing and auto responders. Some of these may require you to shell out money since free ones are only for start-up. If you have the resources, pay for it. You can get back your investment later on.
If you plan to trim your plants, you need a variety of garden scissors to cut off any unwanted stems or shrubs. Since a garden understandably has different kinds of flowers and plants, then you also need different kinds of garden scissors.
Garden scissors come in different shapes and sizes and with different blades. A specific type of garden scissor is used in a particular kind of plant.
A pair of all-purpose scissors can be used not only for cutting thin stems but also in opening food packages or plastic cellophanes. This type of scissors has soft vinyl handles.
Some garden scissors have straight edge blades with a contoured wooden handle for easy grip. These types of garden scissors can be used to trim bushes and thin branches of trees.
Other garden scissors have curved stainless-steel blades for a much precise cutting with plastic handles that are perfectly designed to fit the hands while some have polished steel blades that stay sharp longer even with continuous use, which also come with comfortable plastic handles that are designed both for right-handed and left-handed users.
When buying any garden scissor, choose those with soft-grip handles to prevent fatigue to your hands and with a scabbard for easy storage. Placing the scissors in the scabbard also protects the blades from rust and prevents any accident especially when there are children around. And make sure that the scissors can be cleaned easily to prolong the life of the blades.
Gardening tools were earlier produced using copper and later, iron. Now, some manufacturers use steel in producing these tools, and with the advent of technology and more in-depth research, the tools have evolved into becoming more durable even with heavy-duty usage.
But even how durable your gardening tools are, if you don’t know how to take care of them, they would easily get worn out so you should clean them after every use and properly store them, away from water and moist.
Gardening tools are a must for anyone who takes care of plants and trees so better make these tools – particularly garden scissors — available at all times for use not only for your scheduled trimming activity but also for emergency cutting.

Beautifying your garden is not done everyday, except when you are watering the plants. But once you noticed that your plants or trees have grown big with additional branches that you think are dangerous, then it’s time to trim them off.
When trimming your trees, of course you need some tree trimming tools to help you do the work easily and fast.
But tree trimming tools are not just ordinary tools. They have to be durable, comfortable to use and can easily cut off even a large branch.
One of the tree trimming tools you need in cutting off branches is a saw.
A saw has a blade with teeth that easily cut any wood as long as the teeth are sharp. It can either be used manually (by hand) or powered by electricity or battery.
A manual saw is commonly used by some gardeners in trimming trees since they can easily maneuver it when cutting branches that cannot be easily reached using a powered saw.
Among the types of saws that you can choose when trimming trees are hand saws, reciprocating blade saws, back saws, circular-blade saws and mechanically powered saws.
Hand saws have thick blades for a stiff cut. You can choose from among the different types of hand saws such as buck saw, fret saw, frame saw, coping saw, hacksaw, crosscut saw, plywood saw and Japanese saw.
If you want to shape your trees, use a turning saw since this is used for cutting curves or a rotary saw for accurate cuts. Or if you want to turn your cut logs into lumber, use a whipsaw.
Back saws have thinner blades so you can use this when cutting off thin branches of trees. Or you may choose circular-blade saws which can cut any kind of material such as wood, plastic or even bricks.
If you plan to trim your trees, make sure all tree trimming tools are available, particularly different types of hand saws. This is because hand saws are the most easy to use and can cut either small, big, thick or thin branches.
Hand saws are also useful in cleaning off your cuts to produce a much smoother and cleaner finish.
But whatever tree trimming tools you choose, make sure they are of good quality, durable and comfortable to use.
