World of Warcraft Videos

One of the really fun things about World of Warcraft is the amazing number of videos related to the game that are available on the internet. World of Warcraft videos can be more entertaining than anything you'll see on television today or at the movie theater next week. Admittedly, that's not saying a whole heck of a lot, but it's still something.

To think that watching a video made from a video game would be entertaining even without the context of necessarily knowing what's going on would be unthinkable to most people. But even if you've just started playing the game and are not familiar the places, characters or events going on inside these videos, they can still capture your imagination.

In most of the World of Warcraft videos, the animation is smooth and the direction is top notch. In fact, many animated television shows and movies suffer in comparison. While most are not very long and exist primarily as commercials that are not nearly as annoying as the real thing, some of them also contain valuable information and fascinating background on the game. For instance, you can track down interviews with game designers in addition to your basic trailers.

The number of web sites on which these videos can be found is nothing short of astounding. Although more than just a handful of them require that you be a member to access and download their video collections, there are many sites out there that offer up completely free access to their videos. No matter what your preferred method of video playback on your computer – both PC and Mac – you can find quality video to download.

While the trailers and other advertising-oriented videos are the highest quality, some of the World of Warcraft videos that are the most fun to actually watch are the ones made by the players themselves. Many of these feature not just screenshots of the game, but footage of the players, often acting out little plots that tie in with the screenshots. Among the trend in making homemade WoW videos are producing little music videos that combine game screenshots with a storyline and a musical soundtrack, often an original song produced by those making the video.

Because there are so many moviemaking software programs out there that essentially let your capture video from any source and combine them together, the possibilities for making one's own World of Warcraft video is ultimately endless. Indeed, the only limit to what could possibly be done with the wealth of raw material available would seem to be the filmmaker's own imagination. And with so many web sites devoted to showcasing these videos, a player with a little video editing know-how stands to get his masterpiece seen by more people will see the average winner of an independent film festival.

To Start Making Cash from Your Online Writing, You Must Draw Blood First

Writers write just like painters, paint on canvas. This is one of the reasons why it is important that you launch your writing career by getting some freelance writing work that you can get paid for doing.

It does not matter how small the job is or how little the money is that you get paid for it, the important thing is to "draw blood" and get paid for your writing. Everything else you do towards being a $ 100,000 writer will have to start from there.

You can not do any serious online writing without coming across the phrase "keyword rich articles".

What are keyword articles? Keyword articles are articles that repeat a certain key word or key words. Keywords have the valuable power of attracting search engines. This is a complex subject but simply put, keywords are selected carefully in an effort to attract as much search engine traffic as possible to a site.

With the growing popularity of Google AdSense pay per click ads broadly posted at web sites and blogs, keywords also have the important function of attracting the right Google ads to a site or blog that will earn the publisher the highest amount of cash when visitors to the Site click on them.

You must begin by aggressively looking for freelance writing assignments for keywords. In the second part of this article we will suggest a few buyers of keyword articles that you can start off with. But they will only purchase quality articles that you have simply not copied or lifted from somewhere else. So it is very important that before you seek keyword articles, that you actually write a couple first and post them at leading article directories and article announcement sites. Visit sites to see how keyword articles are written and also visit my blog and read this article that uses the keywords (debt consolidation). Here is the link to the article.

Egypt this one

Http://marketingurhomebiz.blogspot.com/2005/05/before-you-can-effectively-market-your.html

Observe firstly how the article on a totally different subject from what the blogs are covering is made relevant to the blogs. Then take a close look at how the keywords are repeatedly used.

So now you are ready to write your first keyword article.

I can hear you ask the question.

"What on earth am I going to write about?"

Why not write about your keywords article business. You intend to supply keyword rich articles do not you?

Read the articles at my other blog ( http://big-online-story.blogspot.com ) carefully. Are there any of the articles that you can re-write in your own words without telling any lies about your past achievements as a writer so far? Please do not copy entire paragraphs from my blog. I have not given you permission to reproduce my articles. I have simply asked you to do what you can do with any site or blog online. Read and digest the central ideas and then write an article using the ideas as if there were your own. Select any simple keyword that you want to use that will be the central or key point in your article. (We will deal about the subject of selecting keywords for your articles later on in this blog).

Remember that you will really have to be convincing so select topics that you care about enough and believe in my blog, to be convincing. A writer who is not convincing in their writing will never be successful at any type of writing, so this is a very critical skill you will need to acquire if you are to succeed.

Next you will have to compile your resource box. This is a skill on it's own and I have an extremely useful article on the subject at my blog http://marketingurhomebiz.blogspot.com . It is titled "Your article resource box will kill or lift your internet marketing."

Read it and carefully use the valuable points gained from years of experience and trial and error to create your best resource box to launch off your career as a writer.

Greeting Card and its Importance

A Greeting card is just a small piece of paper printed or hand painted or handcrafted with printed or handwritten message to convey your feelings to someone. Nowadays there are so many ways we can express ourselves, our feelings to someone such as a SMS, an email massage, an ecard, a fax message or just a telephone/cell phone. But still Greeting Cards are being used for this purpose. Some people think to such an extent that why to spend money and time in purchasing and sending a greeting card, instead why not send a SMS, so cheap and time saving option!!!

Nowadays what matters in every field is the presentation. Greetings card is also one of the means of presenting your feelings. I would say that the Greetings card is an esthetic looking packing of your feelings/expressions so that the recipient feels delighted and honoured.

Hence Greeting cards can be used for almost all occasions, only thing that you should select the right card, appropriate color, design or picture along with the printed message or your own handwritten massage, which will reveal your affection. As Greeting cards are for many reasons, occasions and hence there are many types of Greeting Cards available in the market:

  1. Birthday card
  2. New year card
  3. Anniversary card
  4. Thank you card
  5. Thinking of you card
  6. Sorry card
  7. Best wishes card
  8. Good Luck card
  9. Get well card
  10. Flower card
  11. Congratulations card
  12. Engagement card
  13. New baby card
  14. I Love you card
  15. Valentines day card
  16. Christmas card
  17. Dipavali card
  18. Diwali card
  19. Navratri card
  20. Ugadi card (Hindu New Year card)
  21. Gudhipadawa card (Hindu New Year card)
  22. Sankranti card
  23. Mothers day card
  24. Fathers day card
  25. Congratulation card and so on.

Hallmark Cards and American Greetings are the largest producers of greeting cards in the world. In the United Kingdom, it is estimated that one billion pounds are spent on greeting cards every year, with the average person sending 55 cards per year.

In the United States, many adults traditionally mail Christmas cards to their friends and relatives in December. Many service businesses also send cards to their customers in this season, usually with a universally acceptable non-religious message such as “happy holidays” or “seasons’s greetings.

The Historians say the custom of sending greeting cards is started by to the ancient Chinese who exchanged messages of good will to celebrate the New Year. Egyptians in ancient times conveyed their greetings on papyrus scrolls. By the early 1400s, handmade paper greeting cards were being exchanged in Europe. The Germans are known to have printed New Year’s greetings from woodcuts as early as 1400, and handmade paper Valentines were being exchanged in various parts of Europe in the early to mid-1400s.

By the 1850s, the greeting card had been transformed from a relatively expensive, handmade and hand-delivered gift to a popular and affordable means of personal communication. Thanks to new advances in printing and mechanization. This was followed by new trends like Christmas cards, the first of which appeared in published form in London in 1843 when Sir Henry Cole hired artist John Calcott Horsley to design a holiday card that he could send to his friends and acquaintances. In the 1860s, companies like Marcus Ward & Co, Goodall and Charles Bennett began the mass production of greeting cards. They employed well-known artists such as Kate Greenaway and Walter Crane as illustrators and card designers.

There are two major categories of greeting cards, one is mass produced ( printed on offset printing machines etc.) and other is handmade greeting cards. Hand painted greeting cards is also a separate category of greeting cards. These cards are also available but this type of cards can not be mass- produced as each card has to be individually painted. So every hand painted card is unique.

Wasp Stings; There May Be An Upside

Can we use WASP venom to spur on and activate certain proteins, which are found in the human brain to increase cell growth, brain capacity and neuron transmissions? The reason I ask is that every poison to man seems to stimulate a reaction to fight it. And the old adage “That which does not kill us makes us stronger”. Here is some interesting thoughts on the actual known and studied effects and conclusions.

[http://w1.351.telia.com/~u35108105/bee_and_wasp.htm]

Now then is such a difference. We know that the venom in WASPS is substantial. And we know that there are about 10,000 known chemicals in the brain. 2000 very prevalent and 200 or more acting in significant amounts during normal brain activity operations. Now then if these chemicals are increased in the brain they will change the current thought. I as most of us can attest that venom from a Bee or Wasp when injected increases adrenaline and increase heart rate. But what else does this do to the human. We know that this poison effects the central nervous system and therefore does act upon the brain since it is connected to the central nervous system. But what if it is exactly injected into the scalp or that part of the body where blood flows interact with the brain. What if we inject it into the brain directly? What is the Genome of the venom? Scientists have mapped out the WASP, Mosquito, Bee, Fly and those things associated with such virus or disease vectors. For instance Malaria, which kills a child every 30 seconds and about a million a year in Sub-Sahara Africa. But the ability to make venom and what it is made of and what travels within it is of significant value in creating anti-viruses, antidotes, etc. One Witch Potion, without going into witch doctor propaganda, Harry Potter Best Selling Books or hocus Pocus, it has been discussed through the ages in many cultures throughout recorded history. So then what good can this provide, what does it do to the human brain and why is it many Bee Keepers seems to be better observers and thinkers than other folks? HMMM? This is an interesting post. Yes it is and there seems to be something to this. People who are allergic to bee stings can die. Those that are not obviously have a defense mechanism and immune system, which jumps into action. But few are without some reaction.

[http://ohioline.osu.edu/hyg-fact/2000/2076.html] .

Well before you get all excited about what this venom is made of, they have figured it out.

http://www.biocristalografia.df.ibilce.unesp.br/publications/abstracts/abstract29.html

Turns out it has some ten amino acids in it amongst other things such a proteins. This when shot into a human even at such small amounts is not without an effect. Is it good or bad. Well it maybe good in some regards and it certainly forces the body to defend itself and therefore triggers the manufacture and discharge of a whole other set of naturally made proteins in the body. We know from the relationships between mankind and other species that throughout the last 160,000 years and as many as 1 million years we have in some form or another been living together. Everything affects everything else.

http://bmj.com/cgi/content/full/316/7141/1365 .

Those, which are allergic to bees are rarely allergic to wasps. And vice versa. The Wasp has certain proteins, which do not exist in bee stings. There maybe a correlation to the natural brain stimulants found in the protein PWS 120MCG/V, or that protein triggers the body to counteract the venom and forces a defense system which increases brain activity or changes the areas of the brain which are used in certain ways and for certain things. It is an observation that people who live in areas where wasps live have a percentage of intellectuals coming out of those regions who do not have the benefits of good schools, proper nurturing or balanced diet or high in protein foods which are prevalent.

What is also of interest is during hotter summers we will see a higher degree of these species in North America. And as well, more mosquitoes on other similar genome insects as well as the Killer bees we saw climb into Northern Climates during the last decade. As climates change and cycles come forth, we may find ourselves needing to study these things more and learn how to adapt and create symbiotic relationships with these insects as we attempt to share the country with them. These invaders have different niches but some which coincide and collide with mankind. We need be sure we know which is which. For instance the West Nile Virus is a real problem with animals and livestock. These are sources of our artificial food chain to sustain life as we know it.

We need to know how each creature works and its place in our lives and eco-system so that we can live accordingly and harvest the important things for ourselves. For instance if Wasps eat Mosquitoes and we can harvest the venom then we can have the best of all worlds for us. If Wasps feed on certain types of Mosquitoes such as the common house Mosquito, Culex pipiens, which sucks the blood from birds and occasionally humans, also known to spread West Nile Virus then the global heating will bring in the Wasps and they will take care of the Mosquito populations. The venom if it stings people would not transfer and the Wasps have adapted not be affected by the disease itself. Problems being that Wasps are territorial and might sting people and they just keep stinging and can cause issues such as the ones stated in the previous listed websites above. Now then if we are to really go after these mosquitoes we might have artificial robot or scare crow dummies like humans, which give off a scent or odor that the mosquitoes pick up on and then the flesh like surface would contain underneath acetone or Wasp venom proteins underneath killing the mosquito. Every member of the food chain appears to have an enemy and the giant Mosquitoes with the once inch wing span eat, the other mosquitoes but cannot sting humans, thus they too are positive contributions to the food chain which keeps the biting mosquitoes away. The protein in Wasp Venom is an interesting one and we need to study it more. The Wasp is also used to eat aphids in many places where they are sensitive to the use of insecticides or that the level of potency of insecticide to kill them is too much since the aphids, mosquitoes and other insects have grown accustomed to the insecticides and are resistant now. These are all real issues in modern farming.

There are many types of Mosquitoes about 80, which harm man or carry diseases. We know of as many types of WASPS, some of which like to eat aphids and certain smaller insects like the common house mosquito, which has killed hundreds and seems to be killing more each year with West Nile Virus, which is not very funny. Now then we also have a bark beetle problem so if we can find a genome which likes to eat sand flies for the beach goers and surfers and kite surfers, likes to eat aphids for the farmers, Culex type mosquitoes for the West Nile Situation and Bark Beetles for the forests we are good to go. Meanwhile scientists are trying to decide how to genetically modify organisms such as mosquitoes so they will not carry West Nile virus. If they do that Malaria, Yellow Fever and a host of other terrible problems maybe only one more step away. Think about it.

Automotive Scan Tools and the Modern Car

Thanks to the increasing complexity of modern automobiles over the past few years, most professional auto shops and garages now require a selection of automated scan tools with which to carry out day to day diagnostic work in order to pinpoint any problems with an engine or engine management System in order to discover what action is needed in order to effect a repair with the minimum of error and maximum efficiency.

There are a variety of different tools available to carry out diagnostics and scans on different types of car and to prepare to repair as effectively as possible. Knowing in detail what issues are causing a car engine to have in a particular manner is the key to being able to correct the fault in a timely and effective manner.

Perhaps the best known manufacturer of automated scan tools is OTC, who make a range of tools designed for the highest quality and best price. A comprehensive range is available to enable mechanisms to be able to tackle any job they come across, and the range of OTC automated scan tools is recognized as one of the top choices for the professional, as well as being affordable enough for domestic use under certain Circumstances.

Different jobs require different tools, and some are more complex than others. Typically, any job to repair a modern car starts with plugging the scanner into the engine management computer and downloading a log of current performance date. This will include fuel consumption, and time since the last service. It will give the mechanic a complete overview of how the engine is operating, and where there might be errors occurring. The scan will show the mechanic examining the engine if there are any problems with the fuel supply, the electronics, the air filters, and the running temperature, it will also provide plenty of insight into whether any problems are related to an issue within the engine Itself, or indeed within the way the management system has been set up.

A complete diagnostic of a car's engine management computer system will typically offer an almost immediate list of the performance details for the vehicle, and a good automated scan tool will shave hours off an other lengthy repair task, as the mechanic will be able to tell almost Immediately what is wrong, and what needs to be done in order to repair the damage.

Of course, technology only works well in the hands of those who understand it, and are able to skip through the data provided through a scan and interpret it correctly. However, the latest OTC automated scan tools have been designed to be almost fool proof, and are able to draw on the experience and insight of hundreds of different programmers and mechanic's personal records in order to provide a more accurate overview of the data and even present Possible solutions to many of the most common problems that a mechanic might encounter.

While some manufacturers release their own range of tools, that are aimed at main dealers, a commercial mechanic may deal with many different models and manufacturers in their day to day role, and this is why it is often an idea to purchase OTC automotive scan tools , As they will be compatible with a range of different vehicles from different international makers, and therefore offer greater flexibility without having to compromise on quality or pay repeatedly for scanners for every single car that is on the market.

While commercial level automated scan tools are expensive to install and themselves require regular system updates that carry the latest settings for each new vehicle released, they pay for themselves almost immediately thanks to the time that they are able to save, and the fact that without them , Even the most experienced mechanic would struggle to discover the inner workings of the latest car engines, which have been designed to be efficient, and robust, but are increasingly complex for anyone but the experts to consider carrying out any work on.

Success and Peter Parker's Day Job

Subtitled: "Success and the web slinger – where's the story, Parker!"

A few years ago I was waiting with my daughter in an agonizingly slow 75 minute queue for the SpiderMan 2 ride at Universal Studios Theme park in Japan.
And as I was getting bored watching the repeating clips from old Spiderman cartoons on the TV screens around us, I found myself reading quotes from the Daily Bugle's editor (Spiderman's day job employer). These were displayed all over the walls in the waiting area.
One in particular cure my self-coaching eye:

"You do not win a Pulitzer prize by sitting on your assci characters. So let's get moving!"

Aside from chuckling at the deliberate wordplay around misspelling 'asci', I felt that Peter's cigar smoking editor was bellowing some great personal development mantra!
Goal setting is great in and of itself but without action it is like a news story that is never run in the paper.
Because it was never written down?
Perhaps.
There are loads of people who have ideas and plans but they either forget them or dismiss them as unrealistic.

Mistake number one is not to write them down.
For those that actually do write them down, they can easily be consigned to the "inside pages" of their life because there is no attention grabbing headline to inspire them.
Great goals often flow naturally from a vision of what could be. That is the equivalent of an inspiring headline in a newspaper article.
And they are fueled by the emotional power of imagination. Just as Peter Parker's photographic assignments were to capture the reality of 'real life' stories.

You have an advantage over Peter Parker who could never obviously get that priceless photo of Spiderman in action.
And that is your creative imagination.
You can see, touch and feel your very own goal setting webslinger just by choosing to do so.

Good luck! And see if you can bring back a snap shot or two!

How to Get Richer and Richer

Have you ever noticed that rich people seem to get richer and richer? Have you also noted that poor people seem to have trouble after trouble when it comes to money? If you want to be someone who gets richer and richer, instead of someone who struggles for money, then you are in the right place.

It is not how much money you earn that makes you rich, it is about what you do with your money that makes you rich. I have seen many rich people who have spent their entire lives working and learning upwards of $ 100,000 per year, and after 40 years they are still not financially free. I have also seen people come from nothing to become financially free in a small space of time because they knew how to get their money to work for them.

Rich people get richer because of what they do with their money. Rich people are constantly using their money to purchase assets that increase their income. Poor people use their money on temporary things or things that cost them money to own. If you want to get richer and richer the best way to do it is to seek to increase your income.

Most people only earn an income from their jobs, so if they stop working then the income stops. The key to becoming richer and richer is to turn your earned income (money that you have worked for) into passive income (money that you do not have to work for). An example of passive income is income from a rental home, where the rent is more than all of your expenses, leaving you with a surplus.

By generating a passive income you are doing two things. You are giving yourself more income, because you now have your job AND your passive income, and you are also giving yourself more time. Because as your passive income goes up you can work less and less. If you want to get richer and richer then the two things you need are time and money. Money to invest with, and time to find good investments (and to live the high life).

Starting your passive income stream is not as difficult as it might sound. One of the best streams of passive income is from positive cashflow real estate. That is real estate where the rental income is greater than all expenses. This is a great way to build passive income because you can get a lot of tax benefits and it is also great because as inflation goes up your income will also go up, making you increasingly richer.

You can also invest money into stocks, bonds and mutual funds, though these offer less control and often lower returns if you do not know what you are doing.

If you do not have a lot of money then your first step might be starting a business. Starting a business is a great way to build an asset for cheap, and eventually can become a great source of passive income. If you have no money to spend starting an internet business can be less than $ 100 and the income is unlimited. Open your mind and think about how you could start a business in your spare time, while still working to pay the bills.

Learn the German Language – Is it "Der Stuhl" Or "Das Stuhl"?

Is it “der Stuhl” or “das Stuhl”? As any beginner German student knows, noun articles are very frustrating to learn and sometimes just do not make sense! Below are some reasons why we have difficulty learning them and a tip to overcoming these challenging nouns as they appear.

Step one – What is an article?

Here is an example of an English sentence without articles, “Yesterday I went to shop and bought dog. I gave dog apple”. As you can see, articles like “the”, “a” and “an”, are extremely important in our own English language.

Step two – importance of articles

Why bother learning them? As seen in step one, a sentence just does not sound correct without articles. This is the same for the German language, if you do not know the correct noun article, the German person will understand you but it will sound wrong. If you want to speak German well, it is imperative to correctly learn the articles.

Step three – Gender cannot always be relied on

der is known as masculine

die is know as feminine

das is known as neutral

One of the most common German mistakes made by English speakers is to assume that everything feminine should be labeled as “die” and so on.

Unfortunately, this is not the case, an example of this is ‘die Flasche’ (the bottle). As you can see, “a bottle” has been given the feminine “die” article. Here are another few examples, “das Bett” (the bed) is neutral, “der Stuhl” (the chair). Why is a bed neutral, a chair masculine and a bottle feminine? As you can see, there is not always a reliable pattern to understanding noun articles.

Step four – A picture tells 1000 words!

Now that we know that there is no actual rule to follow for nouns, we are left to learning strategies to memorize these nouns. Using mnemonic Links are an extremely good strategy that will vastly improve your memorization.

Here is the technique: For every article we use a symbol. For the article “der” we’ll use something male, for instance a man. If we need to learn the word “the chair” – “der Stuhl”, we could imagine the following “a man sitting on a stool”, or something more memorable “a man breaking a chair with a stool”. As just mentioned, these phrases or pictures have a tendency to stay in your mind.

Conclusion – paint a picture in your mind

In step four we used a mnemonic method to remember the words “The chair”, can you remember it? “A man breaking a chair with a stool”, “der Stuhl.” Paint a picture in your mind when you need to learn a German noun, make it as silly as possible and you will never forget it.
