The Practice Of Zen Shiatsu - The Japanese Art Of Good Health
Of the numerous health therapies to originate from the orient, Zen Shiatsu is perhaps one of the least known. In point of fact, it's a very close cousin of two popular treatments - reflexology and acupuncture. Another name for Shiatsu is 'acupressure', which gives us some insight into the relationship of the two therapies. Acupuncture has been around for many years in Western countries, but Zen Shiatsu much less so. Westerners have a tendency to believe that this form of health treatment is...

Standard Sizes Of Envelopes For Use At Home Or At The Office
Almost 50% of the approximately 450 billion envelopes manufactured every year world wide are made by automated machines, and there are many dozens of sizes of envelopes available on sale. Not all envelopes are used solely for mailing, but for other uses like pay packets or sending gift cards, etc. American and Canadian postal rules are not like those in other countries of the world. Envelopes are still deliverable worldwide, but in the United States the sorting machines will not handle...

Keeping Your Home Secure And The Correct Type Of Lock For Your Home
The first basic tumbler type door lock was created in approximately 2000 BC, was fabricated out of wood and probably didn't do much of a job deterring the more focused burglar, but it represented a start point. There was little choice for any one owning something of value, but to make sure it was hidden, or lock it inside a building or some kind of safe. Sadly, this basic state of affairs hasn't changed that much - even if most folk don't have diamonds in the house, the total contents in the...

How Important Is A Name? When It Comes To Internet Domains, Choosing The Right Name Is Vital
Is a name important? As you probably know, when we talk about internet domain names, yes it is. There are several things we should take into account when looking for that ideal name, bearing in mind before beginning that the chances are that your perfect domain name won't be available! There are a vast number of domain names on the internet, and the very short focused names have been in use for quite some time. There are also other factors affecting your choices, the most important is the...

A Brief History Of Kiting - From China To Asia
Nowadays, we tend to think of the kite like a child's toy, but this isn't the case. There exists a huge variety of kites employed for lots of uses, even military! There are kites for competition, racing, associated sports such as snow-kiting, and also for eminently practical purposes, such as carrying supplies or radio antennae. Although Chinese Kites are an especially ornate form of modern day kites, China is actually the kite's country of origin. They were first used around 2,800 years ago...

Reiki And Zen Shiatsu - Two Branches Of The Group Of Therapies Relating To Energy Flow In The Body
Out of all the alternative health therapies available, Zen Shiatsu is perhaps the most pragmatic and intelligible. Other methods, such as Reiki for instance, take a leap of comprehension and trust to appreciate, but Zen Shiatsu is based on physics, would you believe. Even though the two practices work with energy flow inside the human organism, and how this should be balanced for health, a Reiki therapist tries to channel universal energy into or out of the human organism. You can even pay a...

The Use Of A Geothermal Heat Pump System For Heating And Air Conditioning
Heat pumps can be operated in two basic modes - they can either remove heat from the atmosphere outside the house (although it may not seem warm out there!), and put it inside your house, or they could be a ground-source type, which takes heat from the earth and does the same thing. The great thing about heat pumps is that they can be reversed, removing heat from your house and depositing either in the atmosphere outside, or back into the ground. The features of heat pump operation make a great...

Cyber Shopping And The Increase In Cheap Personalized Gifts
Of all the items we could give someone we care for, something with a unique style seems to say more than an ordinary store-bought item. A personalized gift says something more. It says " I have taken the trouble to make this gift special, because you are special to me! " Naturally this goes for both men and women, but ladies especially value the extra thought - it's normal to feel taken for granted when running a home and doing those all-important mundane chores every day. Whenever the time...

Solar Hot Water And Photovoltaic Panels - Renewable Energy Available To The Home Owner
Generating electrical power from sunshine is particularly interesting, as we use electricity for a great many things in our everyday lives. Regrettably, the solar panels of photovoltaic crystals are not cheap and will be so for the near future, unless significant advances in technology are made. The photovoltaic method of creating electricity has no pollution and is renewable. The little cell units forming commercial photovoltaic panels are a kind of crystal lattice which is manufactured in...

Noddy - From Simple Beginnings To Present Day Media Icon
For most folk on the American side of the Pond, the name of Noddy signifies absolutely nothing, but for the majority of children of a certain generation in the UK, he was an incredibly popular kid's TV and book character. Making it's launch on UK television in nineteen fifty four and continuing in that same way up to the 70s, it was a established favorite for kids between two and eight years of age. Of course, children nowadays have a substantially more acute and grown up perspective of the...

Shopping Online and Trust - Women's Clothing Boutiques
Cyberspace has been the engine of growth for so many areas concerned with shopping and its not surprising that clothing for women has been at the forefront of this phenomenon. Without doubt, choice is a fantastic thing, but also brings it's particular problems, specially when purchasing at a distance. How do we know we can trust the website? Are our payments safe and refundable? How can we be sure of the quality? These questions, and many others, are the ones we should be asking ourselves...

Renewable Energy Options For The Home Owner - Photovoltaic Systems For Electricity Generation
It's increasingly obvious that our home, planet Earth, is in short supply of carbon-based energy, and that we need to begin exploiting renewable energy in the very near future. What are the forms of renewable energy, and what are the solar power advantages and disadvantages? For the hard-pressed house owner, the premier question is inevitably 'how much does it cost?', which is naturally really important. Other questions relate to the practical aspects for home use and 'what will it do for me?'...

Balance Transfer Credit Cards And Credit Cards For Bad Credit
Virtually every body knows that uncomfortable sensation of having several credit cards, a few of them with an elevated interest rate, and heavy payments. It's not too difficult to understand how this can happen - auto problems, the family needing money, unexpected job loss or just the desire to give the family a good vacation, can all send us a little too far financially. Applying for a loan to repay a credit card account is a bad tactic. Balance Transfer Credit Cards You might think that the...

The Pros And Cons Of Renewable Energy Sources For The Home
The use of renewable energy for home use has been gathering momentum during the past few years, and house holders have been exploring the most cost-effective types to integrate into their homes. There are several applications, but some are better suited to large scale applications, like the use of water turbines. Amongst other forms of renewable energy, some have a downside that make their use less attractive. The common types of renewable alternative energy systems are the solar applications,...

Saving Electricity In The Home Using Photovoltaic Panels For Generating Energy
Saving electricity at home comes under two general categories - economizing on what we already consume with our family electrical items, or changing appliances for better ones that may be more efficient, thereby saving energy automatically. The benefits of these courses of are twofold, primarily to consume less of the earth's resources (also reducing green house gases) but also to reduce household costs. Sometimes, we may not realize how much electricity we tend to use in little things, like...

Martina Cole, A Crime Writer From Britain At The Top Of Her Calling
Martina Cole came into the world in nineteen fifty nine in Essex, Britain and is a keenly popular British crime writer. She was raised in the district of Aveley, and her novels focus on the mysterious and dark, violent world of the London criminal fraternity. The television dramas based on her novels Dangerous Lady, The Jump, The Take and The Runaway have received high ratings and firmly put her at the top of the women's crime writer's niche. Her debut novel, The Jump, was an instant best...

Alternative Health Treatments And Some Well Known Therapies
The big interest in alternative health therapies over the preceding decade has tended to focus on acupuncture and shiatsu, but these are only 2 of the disciplines related to Chinese medicine. It appears that there has been a public resistance to modern medical techniques, because chemicals (drugs) are used too much, and there are often undesirable consequences of the treatment. Chinese medicine and modern practices vary in various ways, but the most elemental is the way in which the 2...

The Novels Of Nelson Demille, Mystery Thriller Author With A Warped Sense Of Humor
Nelson Demille was born in New York in nineteen forty three, and brought up by his father, who was Canadian (serving in the American Navy in those years), and his mother who was a native of Brooklyn. The family moved to Elmont in Long Island and his father became a house builder - his mother was a homemaker, and brought up Nelson and his 3 brothers. Demille was very interested in several sports and was soon involved in football, wrestling and track whilst he attended the Elmont Public school...

Credit Cards With The Biggest Rewards And Cards For Bad Credit
There should be quite a few of people out there who have known the utter delight of destroying all the credit cards in their possession. There's nothing really like it. Unfortunately, it isn't usually a spiritual happening that causes this radical action, but instead a severe financial crisis. What I mean is, we either cut them up due to the fact that they can't be used any more (they've been blocked), or because we can't stop loading them up and payments are galloping out of control. Either...

John Grisham Books, His Writing Style And Brief Description Of His Successful Novel 'The Firm'
John Grisham is is known the world over, and not only by the avid readers of his legal thriller novels. The background of courtroom legal wranglings is not everyone's idea of a good time when looking for a mystery thriller, but Grisham pulls it of magnificently, perhaps because court room battles were a part of his career in past years. Raised by modestly well off parents, his early dreams of being a pro baseball player came to nothing after he reluctantly admitted to himself that he wasn't...

Limoges Pottery And Verification of Authenticity
As all good antique collectors understand, it's not that easy to discover a worthwhile collectible that is also the real thing, but with some care it's possible to take certain steps if we have some guidelines to aid us in identifying Limoges Marks. Real Limoges porcelain was, and still is, manufactured in the city in central France called Limoges. If you uncover an item that seems really good, and possibly the real thing, you need to confirm that it is indeed authentic by verifying the place...

Differences Between Eastern And Western Medical Concepts
Chinese Medicine is not just one discipline, but a collection of several and includes therapies associated with smell and touch, amongst others. Over centuries, medical treatment in Eastern countries followed a rather different path to that followed nowadays in the West. In our Western culture, we do use preventative medical practices, but largely we send for a a doctor or seek medical help when we're not well, which makes perfect sense to us. In actuality, usually this is our undoing. It...

The Art Of Zen In The Western World
It appears to be a common anthem in occidental countries to go 'zen', and we sagely nod as if we know exactly what Zen is. Except for some faint idea of a calm state, gardens of sculpted sand and pictures of Buddha, most of us don't honestly know. Even those of us that do seem to misread the meaning. The word itself originates from a word in Chinese Ch'an, which is in turn derived from a Sanskrit word dhyana, meaning 'meditation'. So far so good, but of course the definition of meditation is...

What Is The Product 'Medical Healing Clay' And Does It Really Heal?
That is a really good question. It seems as though each time an alternative remedy comes into fashion, a new variation of it is promoted in the market place. Obviously, clay has existed for thousands of years - it's in the planet when all said and done - but can it do the things that folks say? There's no doubt that clay holds some fascinating conundrums and probably many of them are still unknown. These should, and will be, be the subject of further experimentation in the future as medical...

The Art Of Zen Cooking - Borrowing Old Recipes And Antique Tools
If you have ever had the occasion to put together a kitchen utensils list, then you've probably found that the biggest difficulty is knowing when you have finished! The diversification of our cooking and eating practices during the previous 50 years or so have been accompanied by an increase in the variety and style of kitchen accessories available. Of course, we can't purchase everything, and often some of these devices designed to save labor make us more work than they save. So how do we...

Orange Juice - Simple Goodness In A Busy World
Generally, fruit juices are very good for our health, and a particularly great example is orange juice. Drinking a complete glass of orange juice every day gives enormous benefits to the human organism. A cup of orange juice holds a high concentration of Vitamin C, which boosts the body's immune system. This means you're not as prone to become sick or catch the common cold or influenza. Certain medical studies tell us that drinking orange juice additionally helps bring down cholesterol and...

Two Events That Changed The Course Of The Second World War
During the second world war, two events had a pivotal effect on the ultimate result - the Battle of Britain and the attack on Pearl Harbor. The Battle of Britain took place in the skies between August and September nineteen forty. After the German victories, the retreat from Dunkirk and the capitulation of France, Britain was alone facing Germany. The Battle of Britain is perhaps the best known battle of World War Two. In order to dominate the English Channel, the German air force had to...

Mom's Ideal Birthday Gift
I think that we are mostly creatures of habit and immediately relate the idea of a birthday gift to a physical item. Of course, this needn't be the case - we can try something different. Gifts arrive in all types of packages. The traditional gift is meant to be kept as a memento of your love. In this way, it acts as a reminder each time it's seen or used. The job can become difficult, specially when looking for birthday ideas for Mom. Believe it or not, your Mom was young not so long ago and...

Essential Oil Of Tea Tree - Magic In A Bottle
Tea Tree essential oil (Melaleuca Alternifolia) is a derivative from the leaves of a small tree originating in Australia, and has a powerful fresh odor. Captain Cook's sailors used the leaves to make a kind of tea, but the natives knew of it's other properties relating to human well being. After 1920, these properties were investigated more and more, and tea tree oil became employed as a disinfecting agent. Although largely pushed to the rear by the arrival of chemical medicines, it remains a...

Credit Cards With Rewards - What Form Of Rewards Might You Expect From This Kind Of Card?
Credit cards have played a big part of our financial lives for so long now, that we sometimes take them too much for granted. Competition in this market place is huge and has motivated the creation of a card that gives you something back as you use them - the cards reward you with either cash back or points that can be redeemed against something useful each time you use it. How important is it to shop around for the credit card with best rewards? Of course, in our complex society, reward...

Using Tactics In Chess
Tactics in chess means a series of moves that cuts down the opponent's options. Chess strategy and tactics are not the same things. Tactics are at a more definite, local level than strategy, which is broader and is the overall design of how we think we will defeat our opponent. In tactics, we can either attack or defend - doing nothing is not possible, (just like life!) I like to think of the competition between two people as '2 player chess', because more and more games are played against...

Characteristics And Uses Of Common Essential Oils
In fact essential oils aren't oils in the strictest sense, but the very concentrated liquid derivatives of some plants. For example, it may take thousands of leaves or petals from a plant to produce just one small bottle. The concentrate contains all the essential components nature provided to defend the plants from disease and harsh growing conditions, and these compounds can be very beneficial to human health and well-being. Frequently nowadays they are inclined to be considered as aromatics,...

Using Strategy In The Game Of Chess
Of course, none of us likes to be defeated at any game, whether it's chess, rowing or wrestling! Many forms of human competition are quite simple and direct - this is not true for the game of chess. Often considered the supreme gaming activity, chess has a special place in our human society. Many authors have even stated that chess reflects how we live our lives and wage wars, for example. In both we need an an unbeatable strategy. When that strategy is defined, we employ tactics in order to...

Principles Of Zen Shiatsu
Though it isn't strictly speaking a kind of massage, Shiatsu is a therapy using touch which acts with the energy flowing through the human body. In Eastern medecine, an energetic force (called 'ki' in in Japan and 'chi' in Chinese) flows through the body and is said to have a more concentrated movement through particular paths or meridians. The basic form of Shiatsu is called 'accupressure'. Poor health can be created as these energy flows become out of balance, a state that can be addressed...
