The History of Mini Computers

The History of Mini Computers

The mini computer, or personal computer, was created as a theoretical possibility in 1971 by Xerox, Inc. Previous computers were large, cumbersome machines that required entire rooms to house a myriad components, therefore they were not designed for personal use. As solid state electronics gave way to integrated circuitry, it became possible to produce smaller computing machines. By 1977, Steve Wozniak built the first modern personal computer using raw IC parts, marketing it as the “Apple.” The design of the first Apple computer spurred competition, and within a few years there were hundreds of mini computers on the market.

Computation devices have been used since ancient times, such as the abacus, but these still required the human brain to provide answers to queries. The first independent computers did not use electricity, but a complicated set of gears and sprockets that could give an answer to simple mathematical questions. Charles Babbage is credited with the first mechanical computation device in the early 1800’s, called the Difference Engine. Other inventors had tried to produce such devices up to the time of Babbage, but many were not accurate or affordable. Advances in mechanical gear design allowed these mechanical computers to evolve, and by the advent of World War II they had become extremely complex. The Enigma Machine is considered the pinnacle of mechanical computational devices, and was used by the Axis and Allied forces to encrypt data for transport between offices. With the invention of vacuum tubes and solid state circuit components, the mechanical computer became obsolete.

The basic idea behind electronic computers is the switch, where an “on” or “off” position designates a “1” or a “0” respectively. With the advent of electronic circuits, the switch was miniaturized to a point where several thousand could fit into a large container about the size of a large filing cabinet by 1953. The platforms of all computers up to this point used fixed programs, and the main computation programs could not be altered without modifying the machine’s hardware. The goal of the industry at this time was a computer that could accept new programming without the need to re tool the device. Computers of the time, such as the ENIAC or EDIAC, required this reconfiguration to be reprogrammed. With the creation of the IBM 701, programmable computers became possible, and by 1958, Control Data’s CDC1604 used solid state electronics and punch cards to set up programs for multiple computations. This technology evolved over the next 20 years, and by the mid 1970’s several thousand large “mainframe” computers existed at major institutions.

The next major evolution of personal computers came with the invention of the Integrated Circuit, or IC chip. This thin wafer could handle thousands of switches, and is the basis of the modern computer chips that we use today. When many IC chips are combined, they can handle millions of computations a minute, far exceeding the larger solid state computers of the past. Intel Corporation created the first microprocessor using IC technology in 1971, and made it possible to create computers that could make millions of computations a second, instantly out dating all previous models. From 1955 to 1970, the primary method of programming computers was a perforated strip of paper, or “punch card”, or “punch tape.” After the creation of magnetic storage devices and recordable magnetic tape, computers could be programmed with spools of mag tape, which could store a vast amount of information when compared to punch tape.

In 1975, the first personal programmable computer, called the Altair, was made available to consumers. It has no keyboard and no monitor, and used a series of LED’s (light emitting diodes) to display results from input. The first real personal computer was designed by an enigmatic young inventor in his garage in 1977, and was so popular that it gave birth to the modern computer revolution; Wozniak, with promotional help from Steve Jobs, created the Apple computer system. Complete with a full keyboard and monitor, it was an instant success. Corporations and smaller companies alike quickly developed their own designs, and by the advent of Wozniak’s second generation, the Apple II, hundreds of types of mini computers were available to consumers. Through the 1980s and 1990s, advances in the microprocessors allowed for more powerful computers, but the basic design has remained the same for decades.

Hearty Shiitake Mushroom and Miso Soup Recipe

Hearty Shiitake Mushroom and Miso Soup Recipe

In a large soup pot over medium heat add the scallion white parts, ginger, garlic, and sesame oil. Cook for 1 minute and add 8 cups water. Rinse the kombu and add it to the pot along with the bonito flakes. Bring it to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes do not let it boil. Remove the kombu and set it aside. Add the dried mushrooms and miso to the pot and let it simmer gently for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the mushrooms are hydrated and tender. Add the bok choy and simmer until it is tender, about 10 minutes. Add the tofu and cook for another 5 minutes. Ladle into bowls and garnish with the reserved green parts of scallions. You can also top it with slices of the Campfire Pan Roasted Chicken and garnish with the Crisp Soba Noodles.

Regarding light miso, the term “light” does not refer to the same thing as lite/light yogurt, it refers to the miso color. Miso is available in three colors: white, yellow and red. This recipe uses the lightest color of the three white. Although each type of miso is made from soybeans, the process and some of the complementary ingredients in the paste are different, resulting in different flavors. White has the most delicate flavor, whereas red is the most flavorful.

Hubpages How To Add Anchor Text Html Back Link

Hubpages How To Add Anchor Text Html Back Link

I have written this hub about backlinks and how to create an anchor text html hyperlink because of the comments I have received after writing my hub on backlink strategy It seems that many people, like myself have struggled a bit with all this jargon and understanding how to get started.

In my backlink strategy hub, I talked about article marketing as one of the ways of building backlinks to your hubs or other web pages. Many article directories require you to put your backlinks in your resource box in html format, they do not allow you to put them in the body of your article in the way that hubpages do with the little icon in the dashboard of each capsule representing a link in a chain whichenables you to insert a link. So, as I found it hard to understand how to create one of these html hypertext backlinks for my anchor text, I am going to explain how you create them and it is really quite easy.

With article marketing, you can write an article on the same subject as your Hub or website, or on a linked subject, publish it on an Article Directory and create a link back to your site. You must not duplicate your content, what you write must be a new and original article but it need not be as long, around 400 words or even slightly less is ok for most sites. By creating these free backlinks to your page, you gain increase traffic to your website and Hubs in two ways, firstly from people directly clicking on the link in your article and secondly by increasing the number of backlinks to your page, you increase its ranking in the search engines which helps people to find it when they are looking for the keyword phrase or topic you have written about.

Increase website traffic by using article marketing and you will get the benefit of targeted traffic because not only have people read your article and been interested in what you say, they are interested enough to click on the link you provided. This sort of targeted traffic is far more likely to bring you increased earnings because they are more likely to buy or click on another advert of interest on your page. can be very helpful if you want to drive traffic to a website that is not selling a product or service over the internet, but is providing service or product offline in a particular geographic location for instance, if you were a plumber with a small website, working in Somerset UK, you could write articles using keywords related to your service (plumbing services in somerset, best plumber in somerset and so on) and very quickly get your site to the number one position in Google for the keywords you target because there will not be a huge amount of competition for those phrases. However, if you use anchor text links cleverly, you can get traffic back to your sales page and in addition, have the opportunity to gather more information from your visitors so that you have the opportunity to sell additional products or services to them in the future.

Write Articles For High Ranking Article Directories Such As Ezine

Let’s take an example of my hub about Pop up Displays. If I was to write a short article about Pop up Displays or another aspect of Exhibitions and Trade Show stands, I could submit this to an article publishing site such as Ezine Articles which is a top ranking and probably the most popular of all the article directory sites. By creating an article here, I can get free backlinks to my Hubs or any other Webpages I want to promote. Ezine has a Google Page Rank of 7 and the value of the links you create will be much higher than links from a new directory with only a page rank of 0. Article marketing is a great way to get backlinks for free.

It is easy to set up an account at Ezine and once you have gone through the set up process, you will be able to submit the article. Unlike Hubpages who make it really easy for you to enter links into the body of your hub by providing link capsules where you just have to put the URL of the site or page you want to link to, in Ezine and in many of the other article directories, you have to create a html hyperlink yourself in order to create a link back to your site or hubpage. It is not permitted on Ezine to put these hyperlinks in the text, you have to put them in what is called the ‘resource box’ at the bottom of the page. Some article directories, do allow you to put links in the body of the article and provide you with a build link button like Hubpages do. Read the submissions guidelines though as many directories do not allow you to put your links in the first paragraph.

Contextual Anchor Links Are Very Valuable

An anchor text link is the most valuable link you can build in your articles. By anchor text, I mean choosing one of your main keywords or keyword phrases as the anchor text and making these words ‘clickable’ as the link to your page, the words ‘anchored’ to the URL you are using as your link.

The reason for this is that contextual anchor text links tell Google that (for example) I have written an article about pop up displays and I have a link for the keyword phrase pop up displays coming from a high page rank page. It would not do me much good to write a hub about pop up displays and then create an anchor text link ‘pink fluffy bunnies’ because Google would see that it had nothing at all to do with what the page was actually about! This is why it is called a contextual anchor link it is in context with the subject of my page and ideally should be your main keyword phrase from your title.

How To Create Anchor Text BacklinksSo, let’s pretend that I have written an Ezine article about creating backlinks. It is general and not copied from this hub or my other backlinking hub and I have copied it all into Ezine and I am now ready to create my resource box with the links.

If I wanted to make the actual words anchor text into my anchor text link, I would have to create an html hyperlink and this is how you do it.

In the example below, I have used the URL of my Hubpage on Backlink Strategy in the Hyperlink text. The URL of your Hubpage is the address, beginning with http:// that appears in the brower window at the top of your screen when you are actually viewing the page.

One of the readers of my last article (“Dogging the Dow . . .”) asked if I could apply my criteria to the S 500. Indeed I could, and did the results are below. Before discussing the S however, I thought it would be worthwhile to discuss some modifications to the criteria hopefully the last that became desirable as I applied the criteria to a larger selection of companies.

Setting the Criteria

Using the criteria to select companies from a field of thirty candidates as was the case with the Dow was pretty easy, particularly since the criteria were able to pare the field down to 10 companies, and that was the precise number that was needed to compete head to head, as it were, with the Dogs of the Dow. To get that number, however, I had to set aside both of the performance criteria and, in the case of McDonald’s (MCD), round off the quick ratio from.99 to 1.

Both steps were okay. I make no bones about the criteria being “fundamentally fundamental” in nature, and that the (technical) performance data, while designed to guide the selection to those companies that are generally moving upwards, are not essential to the functioning of the criteria. Next, while there is a difference between “.99″ and “1,” for a company as large as McDonald’s the difference is a drop in the bucket, so rounding off would seem to be permissible.

I didn’t need to cut corners with the S 500. With everything in place except the performance criteria there were over 100 candidates. Adding both performance criteria narrowed the field down to 69 candidates. In the earlier uses of the criteria I had included a filter for dividend yield, but that was when I was looking for companies that offered double digit dividends; however, there aren’t any companies in the S 500 that satisfy the criteria and offer yields of 10% or more. By fiddling around, it turned out that a dividend yield filter of > 2% gave over 20 candidates, where a filter of > 3% left only six candidates.

However, dividend yield while certainly an important factor in selecting an investment is not as important as the fundamentals underlying a company. My primary concern in developing the set of criteria I’ve been using has been identifying just those companies that offer sound fundamentals. If the criteria are letting too many companies through, they need to be strengthened.

One of the things I look for when I consider an investment is the level of debt a company has, and its ability to pay that debt. The criteria as they were being applied addressed the management of the company, its ability to generate revenue, its ability to pay the dividends it claims, and the ability to pay its debt. Nothing in the criteria, however, limits the debt a company could have. Some of my candidates have debt equity ratios that were as high as “2+” (owing more than twice what they had in equity). As it turns out, the criteria as they currently stand do seem to limit the extent to which a company can realistically be in debt, as by removing the quick ratio filter the results include companies with debt/equity ratios of 35 or more (!); but is there a way to further limit results?

Given my choice, I would prefer to invest in companies that have no debt at all, but that is simply unrealistic for most market sectors. Some debt is almost a necessity, and is certainly a part of business. Where to draw the line, though?

Bowing to reality, then, I would prefer that a company owe less than it actually owns; that way, the company is for all intents and purposes able to cover the repayment of its obligations. (That may not be practicable, but this is coming from principle.) To be realistic and still maintain an expectation that the companies in which I invest keep debt to a minimum, I am adding a new criterion (which I expect to be the last one): the debt/equity ratio must be less than “1.”

We can let this be our “final” formulation of the criteria, then:

Return on Equity > 0 or 1; Return on Assets > 0 or 1; Return on Investment > 0 or 1; Quick Ratio > 1; Debt/Equity Ratio Payout Ratio 100%]; Operating Margin > 15%; Performance (trailing 12 months) > 0; Performance (most recent quarter) > 0, (keeping in mind that the last three criteria are flexible, and that the last two are even optional). I am also going to refer to the criteria as “PIC,” which is the acronym for “Pedigree Identification Criteria” (since they were used to identify the companies the “Pedigrees” I am testing against the Dogs of the Dow).

Of course (as one commenter observed) solid fundamentals do not equal great performance. So far, the Pedigrees of the Dow are close to, but not yet better than, the Dogs of the Dow. But in a greater sense, it’s a matter of what one considers to be “great performance.” Some will say that it means higher returns, while others will say that it means less chance of losing. I’ll be happy to settle for a bit of each.

With that in mind, let’s PIC on the S PIC ing the Pedigrees of the S 500

While it isn’t as popular or as widely recognized as the “Dogs of the Dow,” one of the other contributors to Seeking Alpha, StockMarketPundits, has constructed “Dogs of the S 500″: fifteen of the highest yielding companies among those making up that index. The strategy is fairly new, and a detailed result for last year’s lineup is not available (although my colleague Mark, at Pundits, advises me that the list did not perform as well as the S as a whole the same as happened to the Dogs of the Dow). However, there is a list for this year, and I will keep track of it but more of that later.

There are some indicators of the S that can be examined: three ETFs that are based on the general S (rather than, say, the large caps, or the dividend growth funds). The ETFs are:

SPDR S 500 ETF (SPY) iShares Core S 500 ETF (IVV) Vanguard S 500 ETF (VOO) Overall, for the period of January 1, 2012 (actually, at closing of December 30, 2011) through December 31, 2012, the S 500 moved upward by 13.4% (approximately) to 1,426.19, up from 1,257.60. The three ETFs above fared a bit better:

(click to enlarge)

All three ETFs out performed the S SPY by 210 BPS, IVV and VOO by larger margins, 500 BPS.

Can we PIC better performance?

Using PIC, approximately 50 companies were selected. These companies are all fundamentally sound within the parameters established by PIC; what remains is to determine how to choose from the resultant list. Here there is perhaps a lesson to be learned from the Dogs of the Dow: let the selection be based on the highest dividend yields on the list.

Limiting the list to ten companies, here are the Pedigrees of the S 500 (references to the companies’ performances for last year include dividends paid):

Seagate Technology (STX) is one of the more prominent names in data storage devices. In 2012, Seagate returned a noteworthy yield of 105%. Share value reached $30.42, up from $15.57 at the start of the year. It is one of five technology related companies on our list of Pedigrees.

Eli Lilly Co. (LLY) is one of three pharmaceutical and four biomedical firms on our list. They currently have more than 20 drugs on market, notably in the area of the treatment of diabetes. Their drug pipeline has more than 60 drugs in Phase I, II, III or Review levels of research or which are being investigated for additional treatment or reformulation. Their total yield for 2012 was 29.17%.

Pfizer Inc. drug manufacturer, accounting for well over 100 prescription and over the counter drugs currently on the market. Pfizer also has an active drug pipeline with over 70 drugs in various levels of development. Having lost exclusive rights to Lipitor, Pfizer is preparing to release a treatment for Rheumatoid Arthritis tofacitinib which is being touted as its next “Lipitor” in terms of application and popularity. Last year, Pfizer had a total yield of 24.63%, and has increased its dividends for 2013 by 9%.

Johnson Johnson (JNJ) joins Lilly and Pfizer as one of the three pharmaceutical companies on the Pedigree list; however, while Johnson Johnson accounts for 25 prescription drugs and a wide variety of consumer products and over the counter medicines, they also have a significant position in the medical supply and the medical device technology areas. Last year, Johnson Johnson yielded a 14.64% return to their investors. (It is worth noting that both Johnson Johnson and Pfizer are also Dogs of the Dow and Pedigrees of the Dow.)

Mattel Inc. (MAT) is the only company on our list that is not in either the medical/healthcare or technology sectors. Mattel is also, arguably, one of the most recognizable names on our list of Pedigrees, and influences people from their earliest years through the rest of their lives. Fortune has identified Mattel as one of the “100 Best Companies to Work for”, and Corporate Responsibility lists them as one of the “100 Best Corporate Citizens.” Last year, they rewarded investors with a 41.48% yield.

KLA Tencor Corporation (KLAC) is involved in the semiconductor, nanotechnology, and other technology industries. Their products facilitate defect inspection and yield management. Last year they achieved a total yield of 5.28%.

Analog Devices Inc. (ADI) is recognized as one of the top 100 innovative companies in the world, having been selected for inclusion in Thompson Reuters Top 100 Global Innovator program for both 2011 and 2012. ADI specializes in technology for data conversion and signal conditioning. Their yield for 2012 was 24.74%.

Cisco Systems, Inc. (CSCO) is one of the leaders in networking technology at every level from home networks to enterprise systems. Last year, Cisco realized a yield of 14.08%.

Top 10 amazingly dangerous vaccines to be aware of

Top 10 amazingly dangerous vaccines to be aware of

I wouldn’t say that this one is even dangerous, just inhumane! We inject ourselves with dead babies in order to protect us from smallpox! 14 month old male baby lung tissue to be exact, (these babies are aborted for scientistic purposes!) Kind of ironic isn’t it? Baby, small. Anyways, with smallpox on the verge of exstinction, isnt strange how recently we’ve been trying to collect more MCR 5 cells? Even more ironic how there have been a lot more abortions now than in the 50’s 70’s. I mean obivously people have their reasons to do it so its not too great of an assumption, but still, its not like they tell us what they do with the aborted babies, as far as we know. It is also very suspicious how it is forbidden for labs to put an expiration date on MCR 5 cells kept in storage. There is no hard evidence saying that its harmful or un harmful. I myself find it highly suspicious as to why we experiment with such things. Since we do, shouldn’t we consider that if those babies have DNA, and babies and children are being injected with dead baby lung tissue, doesn’t that seem dangerous? What if that dead baby came from a mom who has a family line who have suffered from heart problems, or even lung problems? Overall, although the evidence on this is vague and somewhat opinionated, I don’t think that it shouldn’t be something to turn a blind eye to.

Did you know that you might be part cow? Me neither! Did you also know that the word bovine comes from the Latin word bovinus meaning ox? You didn’t? Wow, small world! Well, you can imagine that cattle are pretty animals right? Weighing anywhere from 500 to 1500 pounds! Seems like a pretty big chunk of pure meat if you ask me, to top it all of off, cattle get 2 pounds bigger everyday from childhood to adulthood! So where do vaccines come in? Well basically bovine extract causes increased growth rates of the body and hormones. So it helps you grow big and strong! Even though I’m pretty sure the human body can do that on its own just fine! You would think that bigger is better, but bovine extract is already in milk, I don’t see any beneficial aspects of injecting it in humans. If anything, bigger organs means a bigger chance of getting infections or diseases, especially if grown unnaturally by the body. Keep in mind that many cows have mad cow disease and other various diseases, so being injected with cow DNA doesn’t really help our chances from not catching it too. This is Just an opinionated theory, but it does seems a bit likely that Bovine extract may be unhealthy. I mean think about it, cows themselves are being injected with who knows what to get bigger, and then we get injected with those pre injected cows? Something just doesnt seem right in that aspect.

First of all, let me just remind everyone that aluminum is a metal! Most importantly, this element is not a soluble in water in its pure form. Aluminum is used in multiple vaccines! Every dose of vaccine carries around 250 mcg of aluminum! Some common aluminum based ingredients include Aluminum Hydroxide (used to make glass, ceramics, and waterproofs your favorite fabrics), Aluminum Phosphate (also used to make glass, ceramics, as well as pulp, paper, cosmetics ,and paint), and Aluminum Sulfate (used to make paper, fire extinguishers, used as food addictive and to tan leather). Very useful for houseful items and very harmful to the human body. The toxic in aluminum can decompose bones, nervous systems, block blood to the brain. Allergic reactions include rashes, not being able get nutrients from food, and vomiting. Stay away from aluminium products!

This ingredient is so good, we use it in gum, food, lotion, medicine, cleansing items, and vaccines! “Well if its so commonly used, what does it do?” Great question Ken, let’s find out! Well for one, it helps keep all the other ingredients together. “Like glue?” Yeah Ken, like a gluing agent within the product. According to its MSDS sheet (Material Safety Data Sheet), Polysorbate 80 has been known cause cancer, irritation of the skin and eyes when ingested or inhaled, infertility problems in animals (We are what we eat :), and has even sometimes known to tamper with your genetics! Its not like they didn’t know this either! In 1993, when testing this on female rats, the symptoms that occured to them included increased rates of maturity and decreased weights of the uterus and ovaries. Good thing we tested it out on rats first before putting it on the market right? It’s amazing how medical companies hide such crucial information about such deadly toxins like this from us, and yet I can’t even hide the contents in my car from the police!

Also known as Formalin or Methanol, this aldehyde used is in vaccinations as well as specimen preservation, manufacturing car parts, paints, explosives, as well as other everyday use items we cherish so dearly. In fact, 90% of our upper atmosphere contains formaldehyde in the air! Thank you cigarette smokers, forest fire starters, and car users! I mean sure, we convert formaldehyde into formic acid (also in venom and stingers), but if 1 ounce of any solution containing at least 37% formaldehyde can kill a human adult, as well as the correlation of formaldehyde exposure leading to multiple asthma development cases, not to mention our smell and sight tolerance only being able withstand 1 ppm ( parts per million, Ex: 1 formaldehyde cell./ 1 million hydrogen cells), of formaldehyde gas at a time, shouldn’t we be a bit careful about injecting this into babies?

This organic material is a colorless liquid that is generally used for its preserving and disinfecting properties. It has also been used variously in cosmetics, x rays, animal housing, clinical applications, paper, labs, and oil and gas pipelines. Although hard to trace how direct injection of Glutaraldehyde affects us, it is blatantly clear that the workers exposed to this via inhaling (exposure limit= .2 ppm) or skin contact suffer from one or more of these symptoms; throat and lung irritation, asthma, breathing difficulties, nasal irritation, sneezing, thick coughing, severe eye irratations, and conjunctivitis(aka pink eye). It also can burn the skin in high concentrations, cause nausea, drowsiness, dizziness, and chronic eczema (looks very painful physically and mentally!). Its funny how you find all the places where people are exposed to Glutaraldehyde with ease except for in vaccines! What’s even funnier is that it is guaranteed to be poisonous if injected. Just see how it increases birth defects when tested on animals. I’m guessing when they were testing it on humans they thought it would equally as harmless.

Not the worst ingredient vaccines have to offer from such a widely fague collection. Although Glycerin or Glycerol, is used in soaps and fragrances to prevent skin dryness along with its traits to lubricate medicine, and produce great laxatives, its absorbing capabilities can be a bit more dangerous than helpful. How you may ask? in 1937, when it was deemed safe by the federal food, drug, and cosmetic act, there was an “Elixir Sulfanilamide” incident that occurred. A medicine that was under this name used diethylene glycol, or DEG (a cheaper and far more hazardous form of glycerol). Lets just say that Elixir Sulfanilamide was the greatest medically prescribed poison of its time! Described by a mother who gave her daughter the medicine, said that she saw how much her daughter was in constant agonizing pain until she died. What is worse it that in 2007, a Chinese factory started to sell DEG under the code name TD glycerine as a glycerin substitute in cough syrup. However, later on they found that DEG caused MODS (multiple organ dysfunction syndrome), which basically causes multiple organs to shut down at the same time. Take a moment to think about what that would be like. Oh yeah can’t forget how it killed over 10,000 people in Panama, its main importer of the goods’. If the cheap stuff kills, the expensive stuff couldn’t be that much better! could it?

Also known as Neomycin Sulfate; Neomycin is used in creams, ointments, eye drops, vaccines, and many other medical products. Its antibacterial properties have been renownedly used since the 1950’s. Also known to be virtually harmless to the human body. However recent studies have shown that Neomycin may be toxic to the body. It has been known to paralyze the respiratory system, skeletal muscles, and many other parts of within the body. What’s worse is that medicine containing Neomycin have known to be addictive! Side effects of Neomycin include numbness, hearing deficiencies, loss of balance, diarrhea, and abdominal cramps ( what a great drug!) Neomycin is not recommended for use if you are pregnant ( and yet we put this in vaccines why?), of old age, or have kidney problems. Neomycin kills the kidneys! How would I know, because for one it decreases your urine, and for two they never give this medicine to people who have kidney diseases! In fact, doubling your daily prescribed doses of this “medince” can lead to a fatal overdose! The only safe ways to take in neomycin is via eye contact, inhaling, and ingesting it. NOT BY INJECTION!!!!! Put it this way, if such a chemical causes significant damage to adults by ingestion, imagine how much it could weaken a child’s kidney filtration when injected.

2. Octoxynol 10Well I’d say that is one to certainly look out for if you want to get messed up! (Not in a good way either!) Oc 10 contains visible amounts of ethylene oxide (not even recommended to be used in household products! Did I forget to mention it use to make mustard gas in world war 1?) And in 1,4 dioxane (has killed people who work with this stuff. This stuff can burn! Also in some of your favorite household products).

It has been deemed so dangerous that the state of California has banned it from being used because of its linkage to caner, birth defects, and reproductive harm! (Just the kind of medical illnesses I need to get through my day!) This stuff weighs more than air (even in its gaseous state)! What’s even better is that when it enters the body, it burns the cell walls causing cells to ooze out everywhere! Now I know you wouldn’t want to be injected with this fine ingredient, but what if I told you did. Ill give you a hint, Influenza vaccines. Oc 10 is used in cleaning products people! Whenever you get bleach or Windex what does the back and/or front of the bottles always say? “DO NOT INGEST! WILL CAUSE HAZARDOUS EFFECTS!” (Or something like that) So why do we get it injected into us instead?

I singled this vaccine out because this was the only vaccine I found that hides its ingredients from the public. Luckily, one may run and still be found in its hiding spot! You ready for the ingredients? If you’ve been intensively reading, you may be already familiar to some of the key ingredients: Monkey kidney cells (many of which sampled have diseases), polysorbate 20/80, formaldehyde, aluminum, mercury, chlorine, egg protein, chlorine, and other ingredients that aren’t fully conformed as a “proven.” I have no idea why vaccines like these aren’t thoroughly checked enough on a public scale. I feel as though we put a little too much trust in vaccines. Especially considering the fact that we let doctors inject such hazardous liquid that they don’t even put inside their own kids as they tell you that these vaccines are safe! The more we get told about what to do, the more we get tricked into doing into what people say. It may very well be true that vaccines prevent what they claim, but not without an equal amount of dangers. Polysorbate80 dangers, you can look up its msds sheet):

The balance statistics according to TLPD were already balanced before they decided to make extended thermal queens and metabolic overlords. The fact that some Zergs who had accomplished absolutely nothing in their starcraft carreers popped up from nowhere top is where the term came from

Zerg was buffed, of course previously weak Zergs would do better. That was the point.

This time around though, I glad I decided to click on that link.

Top 10 hottest car seats

Top 10 hottest car seats

A car seat is arguably the most important thing you will buy for your baby. Because of this, most moms agonize over which one is the best for their new little bundle of joy, but when it was my turn, I was so overwhelmed after choosing everything else on my registry, the entire process went like this

Me: Hey BFF, which infant car seat should I buy?

I didn even think twice about it until I walked into my first Mommy and Me class and was greeted by 25 new moms and 25. Yes, apparently I missed the new mom needs a Graco Snugride memo. Must have been out that day. Here are the top car seats from each category. The bonus with these is you can pop it in and out of strollers and, if you purchase multiple bases, you can use it in different cars.

1 Infant Car seat ($154.99)

Inexpensive, safe and long lasting, this classic is still bringing home the bacon in this category; however, I will say the new Britax Chaperone car seat (below, red $229.99) is coming in strong at second place. Especially when you consider it has only been on the market for about a year. Fans of this model love the unique anti rebound bar which stabilizes the seat in the event of a crash.

Forward facing only seats that lets your child use a 5 point harness release for longer.

1 Toddler Car Seat ($279.99) Talk about growing with your child this seat goes up to 85 lbs in 5 point harness mode and 120 lbs in the belt positioning booster mode. Huh?? 120 lbs??? Wow a few of my friends could sit in that seat. Haha. Graco Nautilus ($169.99) came in at 2 in this category with users claiming it easily from one car to another. Huge selling point because it saves you from having to buy multiple seats for different cars.

These car seat are best rated for features. I want moms to know that as a Child Safety Seat Technician, ALL carseats are safe unless recalled/on a recall list (tose purchased new from a store are almost always good) and that there are cheaper seats on the market in case price is an issue. The cheaper seats are just as safe, that just might not have a colorful cover or cup holders, etc. Don let the price intimidate you. Look for something affordable if you need too. You are not skimping on safety. For recall information check NHTSA website.

Hi Danielle yep, this list was pulled together based on sales, not safety. As Elizabeth points out, all of the seats are safe unless they have been recalled. As for the BundleMe I never heard that they aren safe. I will have to dig in there to see if there are any warnings. In this case, the photo was supposed to tie to my story up front about my lime green seat not safety. The larger photo would show you that the straps are loose because he actually on the floor, not in a car. Still, I get your point and will look into your claims on BundleMe.

Clearly an article for people for who research only flirts with the most superficial levels.

Just wanted to mention that while the baby in the pic is SUPER cute, that the seat is unsafe and really, that picture shouldn be used in an article that discusses car seat safety. Even one this superficial and simplistic. The bundle me in the picture (you can see it there under and over the baby) is an aftermarket product. They are not considered to be safe as they are not tested with all seats. ALSO, having anything between the harness and baby is unsafe as it can get compressed in a crash and cause the straps to be too loose, and the baby can be ejected from the seat.

We can also talk about that sweater being too thick, and between it and the bundle me that baby is barely held into that seat.

You want to put a pic of a baby in a seat in an article about car seat safety, please make it a picture of a baby safely seated in one.

Ancient Greek Weapons Tools

Ancient Greek Weapons Tools

The early Greeks, like the Mycenaeans, were a warrior culture. Painted frescoes often showed the Mycenaeans in great battles and their dead were buried with weapons and helmets or shields. Weapons were commonly made out of wood or stone. It was not until around 800 BC when iron was cast for weaponry. Some were able to afford to have bronze weapons. Spears were made from long wooden rods with a sharpened rock fastened to the end. Shields were typically made of wood and covered with leather. Chariots were constructed out of wood and dragged by horses. Helmets were generally made of leather and had boar hair or tusks sewn on to intimidate enemies.

Houses in Ancient Greece were made out of wood, plaster and clay. People of meager means typically lived in a house with one to three rooms and holes in the walls for windows. Rich Greeks lived in large homes with several rooms and multiple levels. Roofs were made from dried clay, and were made in much the same way pottery was created. The clay was formed into tiles and the tiles were laid on top of each other in a descending fashion. The walls of the houses were made from mud bricks covered in plaster.

As ancient cultures evolved from hunting and gathering communities to farming cultures, the tools for cultivating food changed. An ancient from of the plow, called a Arotron, was used to turn the land. Although the dry and nutrient weak soil made the cultivation of many foods difficult, it was well suited from growing olive trees. The olives were collected in wicker baskets to be sold in the market. Fishermen used nets made of braided rope to catch fish in the Mediterranean Sea to sell in the market.

How To Build A Portable Changing Room

How To Build A Portable Changing Room

A Portable Changing RoomA portable changing room is an amazing asset to any fashion vendor who attends and participates in expos or fairs. As a Vault Denim Fashion Consultant, I have found that having a way for my customers to try on the jeans is essential to my success at any show! I made a portable changing room with a PVC pipe frame that is easy to set up and just as easy to break down! It was the perfect solution! With a few personal touches it makes an eye catching advertisement for every show!

While it may look complicated and even “sound” complicated, it really is very simple. I was able to purchase the materials, make necessary adjustments, put it all together and even sew the drapes within a few short hours one afternoon! That was all done from a vision I had in my head! Hopefully with the instructions listed here, you will be able to make your own changing room in a much easier manner! Good luck!

Begin With A PlanThe first step is to begin with a plan. What do you need your portable changing room for? Is it for a business expo for your business or is it for camping? Make it fit your need. I needed one suitable for trying on jeans. That meant it needed to be big enough to have a chair, big enough to tug up a pair of jeans, big enough for a little one to go in with Momma, yet small enough that I could put it up anywhere and small enough to collapse and carry with me to anywhere.

I decided that my changing room would be about 3 feet square and about 6 feet tall. It needed to be tall enough that most people could not look down into it, but most women are under 6 feet tall, so it would feel private enough. The next step was to break it down and figure out the frame. I wanted the fabric drapes to be made of denim (just made sense selling jeans!) so the frame would need to be solid enough to support the weight of the fabric.

Several sketches later I had a plan for a frame and I headed to the local lumber yard!

Gathering SuppliesI went to the Joplin Home Depot and began gathering fittings and PVC pipe. They were amazing and even cut the pipe to fit for me! I made a couple of adjustments later at home and trimmed up the pieces with a hacksaw in mere minutes.

I used 1 inch diameter PVC pipe. It was a bit stronger and only pennies more, definitely worth the money! The fittings were a bit more expensive, but again the stability of the changing room was worth the added investment.

8 corner pieces

8 T shaped fittings

6 pieces of 10 foot long 1 inch PVC pipe these were each cut into 3 3 foot pieces and 1 1 foot piece you will use a total of 16 3 foot pieces, 4 2 foot pieces and 4 11 inch pieces

9 yards of fabric

decorative ribbon as desired

sand paper or metal file

Fitting It All TogetherBegin by trimming off about 1 inch off of each of 4 of the 12 inch pieces. This will give you 4 11 inch pieces. This allows for the extra inch added by the added fitting in the back panel. It is important to keep the height of all four sides equal.

You will also trim 4 pieces down to 2 feet each. These will be placed with the 11 inch pieces in the back frame. It really does all go together correctly! The added bars in the back lends added strength to the frame. Hang in there!

Once that is done, use either sandpaper or a metal file to smooth the edges on the pipe. This is essential for the smooth piecing together and taking apart of the pieces. Test each end into a fitting until it goes in and comes out smoothly. When setting up at a show, you will be glad you took the time for this vital step!

Begin by piecing together the back panel and then the front panel. Next lay the back panel on the floor and work from the ground up and place the side posts into the frame. Place the front panel on and snap into place. Go around the entire frame tightening the pieces into the fittings to ensure a secure frame.

I am adding a picture graph of the pieces and the sizes and how they fit together. I also have the sewing on the drapes on it, but we will go into that in the next segment.

Best way to put it together is by putting together the back panel first. Begin by making 2 posts with a 2 foot piece, T fitting, 11 inch piece, T fitting, 11 inch piece, T fitting, 2 foot piece. Connect the Tops and bottoms with corner fittings and 3 foot pieces. Follow with putting together the front panel by making 2 posts of a 3 foot piece, T fitting, and another 3 foot piece. Connect the tops and bottoms of these posts with corner fittings and 3 foot pieces. Connect the front panel and the back panel with the side bars by placing 3 foot pieces into the T fittings. You may have to turn the T fittings to get the right angle. Make sure your front is an open doorway!

The frame is light weight and easy to “flip” to put together.

Sewing The Drape PanelsI purchased 9 yards of fabric which I cut into four panels each measuring 6 foot and 6 inches long. I chose denim to provide my customers with the most privacy possible. In addition to providing privacy, the weight of it will help to keep it from blowing around in a breeze. Some have used regular curtains and even shower curtains for changing rooms, but I would be leary of changing in one of theirs!

Anyway, begin by folding down the top three inches of each panel and sewing a pocket for the rod to pass through. Next with right sides together, imagining the panels to be labeled A,B,C, and D, sew them together leaving the top 3 inches below the rod pocket unsewn. When the panels are all sewn, then attach panels A and D at the top for only about 9 inches. This keeps the drapes a single unit, but leaves the opening for the doorway. The bottom edge can be hemmed if you choose, but with the denim, the raw edge was perfect!

Slide the top rods into the pockets making sure to keep the doorway at the right spot! Once the fabric is on all four rods, snap them tightly back into place with the fabric on the outside of the frame. You can add ribbon and decorations as you please. One advantage to making the changing room yourself is that you can customize it to fit your business designs. I added zebra ribbon and turquoise netting with rhinestones glued to them to make the changing room pop!

The doorway can be kept closed by using a large clam shell type hair clip on the inside to clamp it together. The clip can also be used on the outside to pull the doorway back and show that it is open for use.

The Final TouchesA few final touches can make the changing room a classy addition to any booth. In addition to the zebra ribbon, blue netting and the glued on rhinestones, I bought a zebra folding lawn chair to place inside to make changing easier for my customers. I also got a rug to fit the floor area. I have a mirror that I purchased from the local department store which hangs from hooks. It is easy to hook over the back wall inside thus providing customers a way to check out their “look” in private. I have GOT to get a battery operated light, though! These personal touches make the changing room really feel like a changing room and less like a tent thrown in the corner. The last thing I added was a banner from Vistaprint with my company name, Denim Chic More, to advertise from afar. It catches the eye and draws them in. The $159 sign up fee is the only investment required. Carey.
