Are Bad Business Vibes Adversely Impacting Your Bottom Line?}

Posted on May 23rd, 2017

Submitted by: Lorraine G. Jackson

Every business radiates a level of energy that can be felt and has a profound impact on the day-to-day operations of the company. If youve ever walked into a room shortly after an argument, (even if you werent there to witness the argument or conflict when it occurred) you may have sensed an uneasy feeling in the room after the incident took place.

In many instances, energy created by an unpleasant discourse or event usually dissipates on its own over a short period of time. However, when negative energy lingers long after the negative incident ended and does not dissipate on its own, (this usually occurs when something traumatic has occurred in a particular work space; or the work area is the site of constant conflict and tension over a prolonged period), these negative vibrations are absorbed into the immediate atmosphere causing the work space to store negative energy, or the Chinese term (shar chi).

Over time, like a residue, negative energy builds up, significantly lowering the vibrational level of the business atmosphere. Some indications that your business is being affected by (shar chi) include a downturn in productivity and profitability due to a prolonged period of tension, conflict and stress. Repeatedly addressing recurring issues to no avail, or experiencing constant heightened negativity such as aggravation, frustration and lethargy while spending time in a specific work area.

Once youve made a preliminary assessment of your business current vibration and determined that bad vibes are having a compromising impact on your companys culture, the following 4 simple steps can be easily implemented to immediately begin increasing your business positive energy or (chi).

First, clear the air. – Many Feng Shui consultants recommend using a technique called smudging, which is simply burning sage or other clearing incense throughout the affected area. This smoke acts like a neutralizer, clearing the air of negative energy or (shar chi).

Update your work space. Getting rid of all unnecessary clutter such as old, outdated broken furniture, office equipment and dying plants will also increase the flow of positive energy.

Re-organize your work space. In the book, Feng Shui Secrets Revealed, Author and Feng Shui Consultant, Melissa Coleman recommends rearranging office furniture and equipment using a Bagua map, A Feng Shui tool which shows where to place furniture, equipment and accessories to enhance your office or work environments positive energy.

Play relaxing meditational music. Light, airy music containing the sounds of rain, wind or the ocean is also a great way to raise your work environments energy level and reduce stress.

By becoming more consciously aware of the energy that permeates your companys environment, you can apply the appropriate aforementioned steps to create a positive business atmosphere that attracts more prosperity and allows abundance to easily flow into your enterprise.

Victoria Wyndham on Another World and another life

Posted on May 23rd, 2017

Thursday, December 13, 2007

Victoria Wyndham was one of the most seasoned and accomplished actresses in daytime soap opera television. She played Rachel Cory, the maven of Another World‘s fictional town, Bay City, from 1972 to 1999 when the show went off the air. Wyndham talks about how she was seen as the anchor of a show, and the political infighting to keep it on the air as NBC wanted to wrest control of the long-running soap from Procter & Gamble. Wyndham fought to keep it on the air, but eventually succumbed to the inevitable. She discusses life on the soap opera, and the seven years she spent wandering “in the woods” of Los Angeles seeking direction, now divorced from a character who had come to define her professional career. Happy, healthy and with a family she is proud of, Wyndham has found life after the death of Another World in painting and animals. Below is David Shankbone’s interview with the soap diva.

BDSM as business: An interview with the owners of a dungeon

Posted on May 23rd, 2017

Sunday, October 21, 2007

Torture proliferates American headlines today: whether its use is defensible in certain contexts and the morality of the practice. Wikinews reporter David Shankbone was curious about torture in American popular culture. This is the first of a two part series examining the BDSM business. This interview focuses on the owners of a dungeon, what they charge, what the clients are like and how they handle their needs.

When Shankbone rings the bell of “HC & Co.” he has no idea what to expect. A BDSM (Bondage Discipline Sadism Masochism) dungeon is a legal enterprise in New York City, and there are more than a few businesses that cater to a clientèle that wants an enema, a spanking, to be dressed like a baby or to wear women’s clothing. Shankbone went to find out what these businesses are like, who runs them, who works at them, and who frequents them. He spent three hours one night in what is considered one of the more upscale establishments in Manhattan, Rebecca’s Hidden Chamber, where according to The Village Voice, “you can take your girlfriend or wife, and have them treated with respect—unless they hope to be treated with something other than respect!”

When Shankbone arrived on the sixth floor of a midtown office building, the elevator opened up to a hallway where a smiling Rebecca greeted him. She is a beautiful forty-ish Long Island mother of three who is dressed in smart black pants and a black turtleneck that reaches up to her blond-streaked hair pulled back in a bushy ponytail. “Are you David Shankbone? We’re so excited to meet you!” she says, and leads him down the hall to a living room area with a sofa, a television playing an action-thriller, an open supply cabinet stocked with enema kits, and her husband Bill sitting at the computer trying to find where the re-release of Blade Runner is playing at the local theater. “I don’t like that movie,” says Rebecca.

Perhaps the most poignant moment came at the end of the night when Shankbone was waiting to be escorted out (to avoid running into a client). Rebecca came into the room and sat on the sofa. “You know, a lot of people out there would like to see me burn for what I do,” she says. Rebecca is a woman who has faced challenges in her life, and dealt with them the best she could given her circumstances. She sees herself as providing a service to people who have needs, no matter how debauched the outside world deems them. They sat talking mutual challenges they have faced and politics (she’s supporting Hillary); Rebecca reflected upon the irony that many of the people who supported the torture at Abu Ghraib would want her closed down. It was in this conversation that Shankbone saw that humanity can be found anywhere, including in places that appear on the surface to cater to the inhumanity some people in our society feel towards themselves, or others.

“The best way to describe it,” says Bill, “is if you had a kink, and you had a wife and you had two kids, and every time you had sex with your wife it just didn’t hit the nail on the head. What would you do about it? How would you handle it? You might go through life feeling unfulfilled. Or you might say, ‘No, my kink is I really need to dress in women’s clothing.’ We’re that outlet. We’re not the evil devil out here, plucking people off the street, keeping them chained up for days on end.”

Nothing honourable in honour killings, says Indian court

Posted on May 17th, 2017

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

India’s Supreme Court has labelled honour killings a “slur on the nation,” and warned the death penalty will await those found guilty of the crime. The court finds “nothing honourable about honour killings.”

It is time to stamp out these barbaric, feudal practices which are a slur on the nation. This is necessary as a deterrent for such outrageous, uncivilised behaviour. All persons who are planning to perpetrate honour killings should know that gallows await them.

An independent study says each year an estimated 900 people are murdered in India for bringing dishonour to their families, usually by falling in love and marrying outside their caste or within their sub-caste. Honour killings, accepted as a cultural tradition in some parts of India, are normally punished with life imprisonment. But Justices Markandey Katju and Gyan Sudha Misra have now called for a tougher stance, directing courts throughout India to use capital punishment in their sentencing.

“It is time to stamp out these barbaric, feudal practices which are a slur on the nation. This is necessary as a deterrent for such outrageous, uncivilised behaviour. All persons who are planning to perpetrate honour killings should know that gallows await them,” Justice Katju said.

The crack-down came yesterday, as the Supreme Court dismissed an appeal to lessen the life imprisonment of Bhagwan Dass. The man strangled his married daughter to death with wire after discovering she was in an incestuous affair.

The Supreme Court also condemned the traditional village councils who endorse these honour killings and order them to be carried out.

Coloring Pages As An Educational Tool For Preschoolers}

Posted on May 17th, 2017

Submitted by: Peaksel DOO

Developmental milestones are activities and tasks most children can do at a certain age. Children reach these milestones through playing, learning, interacting with the environment and obtaining certain skills. As children reach early childhood, they become more and more interested in the world around them. They are keen to explore, to learn, ask and get to know the world around them. The amount of stimuli a child experiences will influence his or her cognitive development, personality, social and motor skills.

There are many ways to influence and improve a child’s cognitive development and motor skills. One simple activity like coloring can have a positive psychological effect and it could lead to a healthier life. Coloring pages are not art therapy, but are very relaxing, stress-relieving and boost mental clarity. Some of the key advantages of coloring books are:

Motor skills improvement

Coloring activity involves holding a coloring tool and scribbling which helps the motor skills development of fine muscles in wrists, fingers and hands. This activity will help a child with writing and manipulating small objects. Later on, better coordination of fine motor muscles can have a positive influence on academic performance. Using coloring pages as a way to improve motor skills is an excellent method to strengthen hand muscles, which will support a child in later activities such as writing, typing, playing sports and manipulating objects. While coloring, a child is learning to control fine motor movements, to fill in variety of shapes, color within the lines and patterns. These are all precursory skills to dressing, eating and many other important school related activities.

Hand to eye coordination improvement

Even though it seems quite simple, coloring requires a great amount of brain activity and coordination for a child. Basic coordination like holding a crayon and doing the coloring while recognizing a color can improve motor coordination. Using coloring pages as an educational tool and a way to enhance motor development is very relaxing for a child and is an activity that every child enjoys. Simple tasks of holding a crayon, color and shape perception and recognition as well as picking a color might seem extremely easy when you are an adult, but for a child this is stimulating and fun. These activities are precursory skills to writing, tying a shoe and managing clothes with both hands.

Exposure to boundaries, structure and spacial awareness

Teaching a child boundaries is an important part of childs cognitive development. It is quite beneficial if a child learns the rules before breaking away. Coloring pages for kids can be helpful in acquiring a sense for structure and boundaries. Other than positive influence on child’s personality development, coloring pages can be one of the learning resources for shapes, colors, perspective, patterns and forms.

Creativity stimulation

Coloring activity fosters creativity among children and enhances perception for visual differences. Starting out with coloring pages early in childhood nourishes imagination and inspires children to develop divergent thinking and to think about new ideas.

Color perception and recognition improvement

It is important that a child learns the names and hues of colors. Coloring pages for kids stimulate awareness and usage of primary and most common colors. Also, a child can learn about many more subtle colors which is why coloring books can be a useful educational tool.

Handwriting improvement

In order to develop writing skills a child must have hand strength, attention to detail and dexterity. Using coloring pages for kids as an educational tool will have a positive influence on acquiring these skills that are required for writing (that will come more naturally and easily).

Relaxation and focusing

Psychologists told the Huffington Post that by engaging multiple parts of the brain, coloring allows a child to focus on the lines, shapes, movement and colors at hand. Coloring activity trains focus, calms the mind and is an excellent centering activity. A very important part of our brain called amygdala is associated with emotions, memory and fear response. While a child is enjoying coloring pages, amygdala rests which has a calming effect over time.

Gaining confidence

Even though coloring pages can contain simple pictures, it can be a challenging task for kids. The ability to complete a picture successfully builds a better self – esteem and confidence among children. Therefore, completing projects such as these will foster a feeling of accomplishment. Creating a piece of art will be a nice emotional boost for children. As a result, child will embrace its creativity and will develop a feeling of self – worth.

Self expression

Coloring pages for kids are a great way to give a child an opportunity to express him/herself differently than others. Children are visual in nature and coloring is a natural way of self – expression.

Therapeutic effect

Coloring activity is proven to be therapeutic for some kids, especially if it is done frequently. Among many benefits mentioned before, using coloring pages can reduce stress and anxiety, and can be a way of venting frustration without hurting anyone. Coloring is a simple but useful manner for processing feelings, emotions and frustrations.

Many kids like to color and it seems to be more than just a fun free time activity. Have in mind that even though educational technology has gone way up, there are some simple learning resources and tools like coloring pages that can be used to enhance cognitive development. This easy tool should be used every day as a part of educational material in every school as it is proven to be influential to personality development starting from early childhood.

Latest trial of the One Laptop Per Child running in India; Uruguay orders 100,000 machines

Posted on May 17th, 2017

Thursday, November 8, 2007

India is the latest of the countries where the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) experiment has started. Children from the village of Khairat were given the opportunity to learn how to use the XO laptop. During the last year XO was distributed to children from Arahuay in Peru, Ban Samkha in Thailand, Cardal in Uruguay and Galadima in Nigeria. The OLPC team are, in their reports on the startup of the trials, delighted with how the laptop has improved access to information and ability to carry out educational activities. Thailand’s The Nation has praised the project, describing the children as “enthusiastic” and keen to attend school with their laptops.

Recent good news for the project sees Uruguay having ordered 100,000 of the machines which are to be given to children aged six to twelve. Should all go according to plan a further 300,000 machines will be purchased by 2009 to give one to every child in the country. As the first to order, Uruguay chose the OLPC XO laptop over its rival from Intel, the Classmate PC. In parallel with the delivery of the laptops network connectivity will be provided to schools involved in the project.

The remainder of this article is based on Carla G. Munroy’s Khairat Chronicle, which is available from the OLPC Wiki. Additional sources are listed at the end.

A leak at the Sellafield nuclear reprocessing facility on Cumbrian coast, England

Posted on May 16th, 2017

Monday, May 9, 2005

At the Sellafield reprocessing plant, a leak in the process was spotted on April 19. The leak did not cause danger to people or the environment but it disturbed the normal operation of the plant.

Workers at the plant noticed a discrepancy in the amount of material being reprocessed that enters pipes that lead to a set of centrifuges and the amount of material actually arriving at the centrifuges. They used remote cameras to find the crack where the material was escaping; over twenty tonnes have leaked into a steel lined chamber.

The material, consisting of mostly uranium and some plutonium dissolved in nitric acid, would have been reprocessed in the centrifuges. The large stainless steel chamber that now contains the spilled material is too dangerous to enter due to radioactivity, though it poses no danger to those inside or outside the plant.

The plant has been shut down pending repairs.

Bath Time For Your Baby

Posted on May 12th, 2017

Bathing your baby is so much fun and when you think of it you imagine a happy baby laughing at the water. Then why are you so stressed? Well, this is only normal. The important thing is to make the bath safe and everything else will come with time.

The first thing you have to do is to prepare the bath. Chose the room if not the bathroom that you will use to give your baby a bath. Now that your baby is small, you can use any room of the house that suits you to give the baby the bath, although the bathroom is recommended as you will have everything you need. However, if for some reason your bathroom is not ideal, for example if it is the coldest room in the house, you shouldn t pick it. Then you have to think of all the things you might need. Towels, a mild soap, to unplug the telephone so that no one disturbs you. Have everything ready before you start the bath. If you start the bath and realize that you need something, ask someone to get it for you or not use it at all. Otherwise you have two choices. The one is to leave the baby alone in the bathroom and the other to carry it with you. You should never leave the baby alone not even for one second. You should avoid carrying the baby with you as it will be cold and is slippery and this will cause accidents.

Newborn babies are not ready for a bath, nor do they enjoy it that much. So avoid bathing your baby at the early stages of life. Newborns won t get dirty either. The one thing you should do is to sponge clean the baby. Use water at room temperature to clean parts of the baby that get dirty such as the face and behind the ears. Babies don t like too hot or too cold water as it damages the skin. Newborns shouldn t be having a bath every day. Just use common sense and clean the baby when it is needed.

Giving your first bath is a wonderful experience. Make sure you pay attention to some things and you will be fine. Use a room that is away from drafts as babies are very sensitive to drafts and can easily catch a cold. Make sure everything you use is clean. If you have bought a bath tub for babies make sure you clean it before you use it for the first time. Also clean it after the bath as still water can have germs. Support the baby s head when you are bathing her and never leave the baby alone in the bath. Washing the hair is not needed more than once a week.

Bubble baths are not the perfect choice for your baby as they contain many irritants and aroma that can cause allergic reactions to the skin of the baby. Leave them for use as the baby grows older. Plain water and a mild soap are ideal for you. If the baby is nagging or didn t have a calm day, reschedule the bath for another day. Clean the baby with a sponge and bathe it when the circumstances allow it. other than that, you will see that bathing the baby is fun and can be a happy time for both of you.
