Traveling Tips for Severe Weather

There is a lot of forethought that goes into a trip. You think about packing, plane tickets, travel time, what to do when you arrive. However, sometimes Mother Nature can spoil even the best travel plans. Thankfully, you can take steps to prevent her spoiling the vacation you worked so hard for. Weather can impact you on every level. From what you bring, to what you buy, to what you do after you arrive, to even arriving or leaving on time. It can also affect the vehicle you rent or take around. The following are a few helpful tips you can utilize to help ensure that the elements have very little negative affect on your trip.

First and foremost, try going during the most temperate time of the year. If you plan on traveling north, try to go in the summer, or spring. If you are traveling south, fall or even winter are pretty safe bets. You can also familiarize yourself with the weather patterns of the area you are going to. If you are going to Arizona or New Mexico, check to see if its monsoon season or if there is a drought currently taking place. If you are going to a place like New York or Chicago during the winter, check the snow patterns. Some places have consistent snowfall throughout the entire winter, starting either before you expect or ending long after.

You can also pack to prepare, just in case the weather takes a turn for the worse. Normally you can buy whatever you need at your destination but a little forethought will help you avoid those unnecessary costs. Packing a heavy coat for winter states or a couple umbrellas for rainy states will go a long way in making sure you stay happy and you can spend your money on something you want rather than something you’ll end up needing.

Something else to consider is where you are staying. Make sure the hotel you are staying at is up to date and centrally located to the places you’d like to go. There are few things worse on a trip than having to spend it cooped up in four walls because a hurricane or blizzard suddenly hit. You can also rent a certain type of vehicle to help with your destination and needs. An SUV will come in handy if you are going somewhere that might have conditions that affect the road.

Finally, try and reach out to any local people in the area. They can sometimes be much more helpful than any website or television forecast. Your rental car company or hotel concierge should be able to provide you with a first-hand account of what you can expect weather-wise for your vacation. So, remember: research the area you are traveling to. Pack a light jacket, sensible shoes or a couple of ponchos. Look into your hotel location and accommodations and make sure your mode of transportation can handle most inclement weather. If you follow these simple tips, you should be ready for anything!

3 Quick and Easy Ways to Make $1000 a Week Online (Without Spending a Dime on Traffic)

Who else wants to learn how to make real money online? Are you sick and tired of being lied to? Of being deceived, duped and disappointed? If you are like most of the people who enjoy our articles about EASY online wealth creation, the simple truth is that you are just FED UP.

But…I want you to do me a favor.

  1. Imagine being able to generate a veritable AVALANCHE of traffic to any site, service or offer…and NOT having to pay a dime to do it.
  2. Imagine having your PICK of highly qualified, fresh leads that are already interested in your offer…BEFORE they arrive at your site.
  3. Imagine being able to build a BOOMING business on the broad back of FREE traffic……without ever relying on shady tricks or techniques that will NEVER work (nor make you feel good inside even if they did)

The truth is, I’ve mastered a very specific traffic generation strategy that I call content marketing…and the very best part is just about ANYONE reading this right now can do what I’m about to lay out for you.

Why should you believe me? I’ve written over 5,000 (yes thousand..:-) pieces of unique content that have generated MILLIONS of readers, tens of thousands of subscribers in many different niches and an empire of blogs, web sites and affiliate product promotions that you can COPY…simply using the 3 simple techniques below.

Ready? Here are my top 3 ways to generate a 4 figure WEEKLY income using nothing but free traffic derived ENTIRELY from content marketing methods. And remember, you ONLY need to make about $150 a day to get to that number, which may FEEL like a lot right now, but it’s not…and you CAN do it if you follow through.

1 – Root Level Redirection: Pick ONE high EPC product (I like an EPC of 80 or above if you are using one of the main affiliate networks like CJ) and simply install a root level re-direction that forwards the visitor from YOUR offsite content directly to the vendors landing page, with your cookie.

This works very, very well for a whole hodge podge of different products…and “free trial” offers can often convert at 3 or 4% using this approach. (and usually pay out 35 dollars PLUS per sign up…which adds up hyper fast)

2 – One page review sites: I love this approach, and this WILL convert better than the root level re-direction above…PLUS you get the added benefit of search engine optimization and natural traffic from natural search as well. (rather than just from the content directories themselves…which is pretty much where you’re going to be limited in our first example)

The key? Simply expand your product selection to 3 products, rather than one! Very easy…and while the actual click through rates are going to be less….you will probably make MORE money using this approach for sure.

3 – Relationship Marketing: Build a list. Build rapport…and relationships. And then sell your OWN suite of services. Become a coach. Or consultant. Personal services is the absolute BEST way to make a fortune online that endures in value…and won’t disappear if the products you’re promoting come down. (as CAN happen in our first two examples, and can also be a pain in the rear end AND your bank account when it does)

Honestly?

You can make 3, 4 or even 500 dollars a day as a coach, often taking whatever you are MOST personally passionate about into perpetual piles of profit…AND making it happen in a hurry!

Fast Weight Loss Diets That Shrink Belly Fat

Getting a Firm Belly

A lot of importance is placed upon tight flat stomachs. Marketing campaigns are always promoting items that will accomplish this. Although many individuals want to lose their belly fat, due to appearances, one main reason to reduce this fat is your health! However, experts are now saying that it is okay to have a little fat, as long as you are not overweight.

Belly flab and high blood pressure, as well as high cholesterol, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes have been linked to belly fat. In order to be at no health risk, men should not have a waist measuring more than 40 inches, and women must have a 35 inch waist or less.

Below are some good techniques to help you reduce dangerous abdominal fat and get a firm belly:

· Exercise More, Eat Better

Calories do not have to be burnt at a gym or workout class; this can be done when you participate in everyday activities. For example, yard work burns several hundred calories per hour. Whereas organized sports, like football, burn even more. Another great activity to burn calories is swimming. Still another way to burn calories is to engage in walking.

Your fat-burning metabolism will kick into overdrive with Cardio exercise. All you need is persistence and perseverance; the trick is to find an activity you like. If you stick to it, the pounds will melt away. It’s also imperative to alter your routine to ward off boredom, as well as to get maximum calorie burning results.

In order to get a firm belly, there are different exercises that you can implement into your schedule. The American Council on Exercise did a study to find out the best types of exercise to incorporate into any weight loss program. Their findings included supine bicycle, captain’s chair leg lifts, and vertical leg crunches. These exercises are thought to work the abs more than any other exercises. Other good exercises include twisting crunches and exercise ball crunches. These activities should be done several times a week in order to obtain a slimmer waistline. Detailed step-by-step tutorials for each exercise can be found on the internet. However, if you are an outside person and your yard needs mowed, this activity will move all those muscles in the right way. However you must engage in this activity at least 20 minutes, non- stop.

Different foods can help you get a firm belly. Foods high in protein and fiber are slenderizing, however sugary carbs increase belly fat rather quickly. You should look for a diet consisting of complex carbs, unsaturated fats, and lean protein sources; a classic example is the South Beach diet. The diet solution has a high success rate and is a natural way of losing weight.

· Reduce Stress

The reducing of stress can be accomplished at the same time that you are losing belly fat. This can be done through the implementation of yoga. Yoga has a two-fold effect on our bellies, as follows:

1. It reduces stress levels. Stress very often leads to weight gain. Stress-induced weight gain often results in belly fat. In this way, stress reduction can give you a flatter stomach and at the same time, actually lower your risk for many diseases.

2. Yoga also tones the muscles in your stomach. A yoga routine that includes supine poses and other postures will work the abdominal muscles. You might want to check out a yoga DVD or video tape, or you can also try to go through some yoga tutorials.

All in all, it takes time and effort to get that dream belly, but it sure is worth it!

Clothes Dryer

There are two types of clothes dryers one is gas the other is electric. The gas dryer is half gas and half electric, the gas is used for lighting a flame to create the heat to dry the clothes, the electric is used to operate the motor, timer, ignitor, coil kit and thermostats.

The gas dryer has more working parts than the electric dryer, when there are more working parts there is a greater chance of something breaking, the gas dryer does break down more frequently than the electric dryer.

The electric dryer use 220 volts to operate the heater element only, all the other parts use 110volts. Both gas and electric dryer have some basic parts: motor, timer, belt, thermostats, and thermal fuse.

These are the functions of each part.

The motor turns the belt that is on the basket, the timer sends the desired voltage to each part for the desired time that it is set on, the thermostat maintains the desired temperature and the thermal fuse shuts down the dryer if the thermostat fails.

A common problem with both gas and electric is clothes taking a very long time to dry, lint building up in the exhaust vent hose is sometimes the reason. The best way to check if the exhaust is partially blocked is to turn on the dryer. Then go outside to where the vent is, put your hand close to the vent, if there is little or no hot air coming out out, your vent hose is blocked. There should be a strong flow of hot air coming out. Sometimes birds build their nest at the vent opening because of the warm air they find coming out of it. Also if the vent comes out near the ground it sometimes get covered by snow.
