4 charging mistakes you should not ignore

Many phone users tend to complain that their device’s batteries discharge quickly. Here are some 4 mistakes that users typically make when charging their phones.

1. Low Battery

Avoid waiting for your battery to reach a critically low level before charging. The effect of this on your phone battery is not immediate, but over time it begins to manifest and it eventually stresses out your phone battery and shortens the battery life.

2. Keeping your phone case on while charging

Your phone typically emits heat when charging. To avoid exposing your device to ambient temperatures, it’s advisable to remove the phone case while charging your phone so that the heat emitted from your phone while charging can escape. This way you can prevent your device from becoming hotter and potentially overheating when charging. Charging your battery at uncomfortable temperatures can permanently damage battery capacity.

3. Charging wrongly

You should mind where you charge your phone because not doing so can negatively affect your battery capacity. Phones have a temperature range they can function normally and charging your phone in a hot area can raise the temperature and stress the battery out. Also, charging your phone in especially low-temperature areas, like in front of an air conditioner, can also cause problems for your battery that will eventually affect its optimum performance.

4. Charging your phone overnight

The least you’ll sleep throughout the night is most likely going to be between 5 to 8 hours, your smartphone battery typically only needs 2 to 3 hours to fully charge. Charging your phone overnight, constantly stresses your phone battery each night. Sooner than later, your phone is likely to have battery problems. In addition, the temperature rises when the battery is overcharged, so apart from shortening battery life, it can also threaten user’s safety in the event it quickly heats up and explodes. It’s better to charge your phone before you sleep and switch it off while sleeping to preserve the battery till the next day.

Reason why late kobe Bryant love helicopter

The world is in mourning over the death of the 41-year-old Los Angeles Lakers legend. The basketball star, who shared four kids with wife Vanessa Bryant, passed away on Sunday morning in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, Calif. Kobes 13-year-old daughter Gianna “Gigi” Bryant, along with seven other people, were also killed in the devastating crash.

At the time of the crash, the helicopter was believed to heading to Kobes Mamba Academy in Thousand Oaks, Calif. Kobe was the coach of his daughters basketball team, and fellow passengers on the helicopter included Gigis teammates and Kobes assistant coach.

As news of the crash emerged over the weekend, tributes for the beloved star began to appear online. In the tributes, its often mentioned how much Kobe loved his family and how much he enjoyed talking about them. In a 2018 interview with Alex Rodriguez for The Corp With A-Rod and Big Cat, Kobe explained how much family time meant to him, and why he started taking helicopters from his home in Orange County up to the Los Angeles area for basketball.

“Traffic started getting really, really bad,” Kobe said during the interview. “I was sitting in traffic and I wound up missing like a school play because I was sitting in traffic.”

“This thing just kept mounting, and I had to figure out a way that I could still train and focus on the craft but still not compromise family time,” Kobe explained. “So thats when I looked into helicopters and being able to get down and back in 15 minutes.”

While Kobes wife Vanessa offered to pick the kids up, Kobe told her he wanted to do it because being on the road for basketball often kept him away from home.

Kobe added, “Every chance I get to see them and spend time with them, even if its 20 minutes in the car, I want that.”

In addition to Gigi, Kobe and Vanessa are parents to Natalia Bryant, 17, Bianka Bryant, 3, and Capri Bryant, 7 months.

Our thoughts are with the families affected by this tragedy during this heartbreaking time.

Manchester united agree 26 million euro for a attacker(guess who?)

Manchester United are consistently linked with Sporting CP attacking midfielder Bruno Fernandes and the latest reports going on in the media seem highly positive.

According to The Sun , Man Utd are expected to agree a five year contract worth £26million that will make the player earn £100,000-a-week. The British source have revealed that the Portuguese international will finally complete his move to Old Trafford after playing in the derby contest vs Benfica

Similarly, Nicolo Schira tweeted that the attacker will play his final game for the Lions vs the Primeira Liga leaders and after that, he will finalize his move to the Red Devils. The renowned Italian journalist further mentioned that Man Utd and the player’s agent fully expect the transfer to be completed.

So, if reports in the media are anything to go by, we can expect the highly rated Seleccao star to be a Man United player in the next few days.

Ideally, I would have liked Fernandes to join early enough to be ready for the crucial contest vs Liverpool but reports suggest (A Bola via Sport Witness) that the former Sampdoria star could watch the North West Derby from the stands.

Not to forget, Rashford, who has been our best player this term by some distance, suffered an injury last night vs Wolves and was taken off the field. If the England international is absent on Sunday then we will have more than a mountain to climb to get anything from Anfield against the European Champions, who have been in record breaking form this season.

We are the only club who have so far managed to stop them from winning in the Premier League in the current campaign. Can we do it again in their own backyard? Last season, Klopp’s men won 3-1 at Anfield.

Let’s hope that we can sign Bruno Fernandes this weekend and see him in action when the Red Devils face Burnley in the Premier League next week at Old Trafford.

4 Ways To Grow Your Hair Naturally At Home

Our natural hair is exposed to chemicals and extreme heat usually from styling tools all in an attempt to make our natural hair appear longer, smoother and straight.

Growing our natural hair faster doesn’t require so much. It all depends solely on knowing the perfect and right product for your hair type.

4 ways to grow your natural hair faster

1. Apply Mostly shampoos : strip the hair of its natural oil after use. So it is advisable for all natural hair to begin their wash days with a pre-poo treatment. A pre poo treatment is a treatment that is applied on the hair before using shampoo. You can make your own pre-poo treatment from the comfort of your home, using a protein-based conditioner or any essential oil of your choice.

2. Always use a conditioner after every wash : Conditioners help to restore oils and moisture to your hair.

3. Keep your hair moisturized always: This is actually one of the best things you can do for your hair. Having enough moisture helps to promote fast hair growth and protects the hair from breakage and split ends. All you need to do is get a spray bottle, fill it up with water, glycerin and any essential oil and just go ahead to give your hair a good spritz from time to time.

4. Use hair growth oils( or Sheabutter): It is important to use oils that protect and promote hair growth. These oils are very good at encouraging natural hair to grow faster. When applying such growth oil, it is important to massage deeply to ensure it gets into the hair follicles.

A man who chop his lover head wit a merchant

Police and residents gather outside a home where Portia Rama kanji, inset, was killed in Tshino village. / SUPPLIED A woman who was chopped to death, allegedly by her boyfriend, was warned to file for a protection order after years of physical abuse.

Portia Ramakavhi, 35, from HaMutsha village, outside Thohoyandou in Limpopo, was stabbed with a sharp object on her upper body and chopped with a panga on her head on Saturday.

Ramakavhis uncle Owen Mulovhedzi told Sowetan yesterday he had on several occasions advised his niece to secure a protection order against her abusive boyfriend, fearing he would kill her one day.

“She took my advice lightly. I said this because I could see the man had turned her into a punching bag. He would even beat her inside my yard.”

Mulovhedzi said he secured a protection order against the man earlier this year. “After he assaulted her in front of me in my yard, I went to the police and got a protection order. I even told Portia to do the same but she only promised to do so.”

The uncle said the family was now facing a mammoth task of raising Ramakavhis six-year-old daughter.

“We are still going to explain to her when she grows that her mother was killed. It is a painful thing to say to a child.”

Mulovhedzi said the law must take its course.

Provincial police spokesperson Brig Motlafela Mojapelo said the incident happened in the suspects home in Tshino, Vuwani.

“It is alleged that the suspect accused his wife of cheating and after a heated argument, he then stabbed and chopped her with sharp instruments. The victim died on the spot. Angry community members pursued the suspect, caught him and started beating him up,” he said.

Mojapelo said the police were called and the 45-year-old suspect was taken to hospital where he was admitted and placed under police guard.

His family said that the man, who cannot be named until he appears in court, returned home very angry on Friday.

His cousin said the man accused his girlfriend of cheating after coming back from her place on Friday.

“He didnt say much because he was drunk. The next day, he invited her to his mothers house and argument ensued in the house,” she said.

“The incident shocked us, we didnt think he was capable of something so horrible. They were not staying together, she only came to visit.”

The cousin said the pair had been dating for five years.

Provincial police commissioner Lt-Gen Nneke Ledwaba condemned the incident and violent behavior when dealing with domestic issues.

“The SAPS will deal decisively with any perpetrators of gender-based violence and this arrest should send a strong message about our determination to stamp it out.”

MEC for social development Nkakareng Rakgoale said: “The very sad state of affairs cannot continue. We simply cant comprehend what drives some men to do this to the very people they have vowed to protect and love.

“The impact on families, especially children, in such cases, is just too huge to comprehend. Men need to understand their boy children will emulate their actions and therefore, we need men to take the biggest stand against this scourge.”

Tips on how to improve your relationship this year

Whether you’ve been dating your partner for six months or have been married to him or her for five years, relationships are created from commitment and are continued due to mutual respect and effort. To say your connection is special would be an understatement — and to not wish to enhance it would be unfortunate.

While every relationship is different, no relationship is perfect. By doing these 10 things to improve your bond, you won’t only ensure a quality relationship with your partner, but you’ll also prove that you’re determined to work for one.

1. Ask your partner something new

Communication is the determining factor of success for every relationship. It’s nice to ask how your partner’s day went, but it’s boring when you ask over and over again. Enhance your conversation by putting in the extr\n10. Make time to focus on yourself a effort to question your significant other on something more specific. Through this adjusted approach, you avoid falling into routine and begin holding more meaningful discussions.

2. Designate a monthly date night

Amongst both of your busy schedules and nonstop responsibilities, the most foolproof way to guarantee that you make time for each other is to set a night every month dedicated to doing just that. Regardless of if you’re looking to spice up your relationship or wanting an activity that doesn’t include Netflix, the commitment to go on a date is one night — but the happiness that comes from it will last much longer.

3. Express your appreciation

The comfort that a relationship brings is the reason we tend to overlook what our partners do and treat their acts of kindness as our forms of expectation instead. To put it honestly, your partner doesn’t have to fill your gas tank or buy your favorite ice cream — he or she chooses to, and your acknowledgment of this type of effort will reinforce your partner to be thoughtful and remind you to feel thankful.

4. Tweak your schedule

We know — you’re independent and don’t plan on stopping your life for anyone (and you shouldn’t have to). Even though you have other commitments outside of your relationship, it’s a kind gesture to compare both of your schedules to see if it’s possible to spend more time together.

Maybe your partner can go to the gym a little earlier to attend the movie premiere you wanted to attend, or maybe you can wake up earlier to get your projects done so that you can make it to your partner’s intramural game. While you shouldn’t have to sacrifice your life to satisfy your partner, your ability to compromise should be enough to make him or her happy.

5. Remember the small things

Another way to add meaning to your conversation is to truly listen to what your significant other is saying — and talk about it in the future. If your partner mentions a conversation that he or she wants to have with a manager, take note on your calendar and remember to ask about it the day of. The fact that you’re able to refer back to the topics and details that your partner spoke about is one that will touch him or her. Overall, it’s the little things that mean the most, and there’s no better way to show this that n starting with your relationship.

6. Let go of the past

As a culprit for many potential arguments and the underlying issue for future ones, what happens in the past doesn’t always stay there — and it’s difficult to move forward in a relationship when you’re still thinking about what happened in it from another time.

If you find yourself continuing to dwell on the past, it might be a sign to take a step back and consider why — are you naturally less forgiving or is what happened something you can’t seem to forgive? By focusing on the reason for this recurring feeling, you’ll find more clarity within yourself and what you want from the relationship with your partner.

7. Show your affection

Along with expressing your gratitude to your partner, expressing actions to show how much you care about him or her is also suggested. From grabbing your partner’s hand at a restaurant to going to bed together at the end of the night, you know how you feel about your partner, and he or she should be able to witness it as well.

8. Learn your partner’s boundaries

Does your partner wish to be left alone when he or she is upset? Does he or she mind that you want to text throughout the day? These questions are simple, but the answers to them will help you understand the boundaries of your partners and stop you from crossing them. Overall, your partner’s sense of privacy is most likely different from yours, and knowing his or her boundaries is the best way to respect them.

9. Know when to apologize

Sometimes being right isn’t as important as being compassionate. Whereas conflicts with your significant other will vary, not every argument is a challenge that needs to be won. Don’t get us wrong — we aren’t telling you to take blame for everything, but to decide which battles are worth fighting for. Although there’s glory in knowing you’re right, there’s maturity in apologizing during an argument that isn’t as important as the person you’re arguing with.

10. Make time to focus on yourself

How we feel about ourselves is how we’ll act in a relationship — for example, if you lack confidence in yourself, you’ll look for assurance in your relationship. To prevent any toxic behaviors from happening with your partner, it’s essential to have a strong sense of self. Invest in a new hobby, make plans with some friends, and take steps in discovering who you are as a person. By falling in love with yourself, you’ll naturally be your own best version for the person who happens to be falling in love with you.

Disadvantages of cheating and ways on how to deal with a cheating spouse

If you have asked the question why do men cheat, you probably know that infidelity has many downsides. However, we shall outline some of the problems that come with a chronic cheating habit. Men who cheat are:

• Likely to do a poor job of fulfilling their parenting duties: often, men who cheat are bad role models for their children

• Unlikely to be loving, caring and supportive husbands

. Likely to infect their wives with STIs

• Unlikely to make their marriages and relationships work

How to deal with a cheating spouse

Anyone who asks the question, why do men cheat likely wants to know if it is possible to make a man stay committed. Please keep in mind that you can’t make anyone stay faithful to you. If they want to cheat, they will always find a way.

However, if you are with a partner who recognizes that they have a problem and they sincerely want to change, you can help them by:

• Understanding your spouse’s emotional and physical needs

• Accepting their sexual advances and being open to intimacy and sexual intercourse when they need it

• Spicing up your sex life

• Communicate effectively and listen to their needs so you can know what areas of their life need work.

• Spend quality time alone together

• Appeal to his sense of worthiness: tell him he’s valued and that you appreciate his role in your life

• Work on yourselves: exercise together and maintain a healthy diet

Remember that man’s decision to cheat is entirely his. Often, there is nothing a spouse can do. If his cheating is as a result of attachment disorder and sex addiction, he’ll need to see a psychologist for his problem.

So, why do men really cheat?

Men stray for a wide range of reasons. If your man is cheating, it is natural to blame yourself for it. You should remember not to blame yourself too harshly. Cheating is often premeditated meaning that they thought about it before they did it.

If you decide to stay in the relationship and this decision is yours to make you can talk to him about what could be making him stray. The idea is to work together to find a solution.

It is important to note that communication is key. Open up the communication lines and keep them useful. Whatever you do, avoid nagging. Insults could end up driving a bigger wedge between the both of you.

If you want to keep your relationship, you can win him over by showering him with love and respect. Let him know how cheating affects you and your relationship with him. Tell him about the side effects of his actions, too.

Reasons why men cheat

Men and women cheat for all sorts of reasons. Women often stray because they want an emotional connection or money or both. But experts believe that men tend to cheat for the following reasons

• Feelings of insecurity, unworthiness and being unloved

• An opportunity presents itself and they grab the chance to try something new

• Lack of satisfaction in their sexual relationships with their spouses, especially when the woman repeatedly denies them sex

• Seeking attention and physical contact

• Probably feels jealous that the wife has been paying too much attention to the baby and little attention to him

• There is a communication gap in their relationship

• An attachment disorder or a sex addiction problem

• The man might be battling with childhood baggage abandonment, abuse, or was raised in a dysfunctional family

• Monogamy sounds like a joke to him

• He has been socially conditioned to believe that infidelity is a man’s right

• They think they can get away with it

According to a recent study, men who feel less committed to their relationships are more likely to cheat on their partners. Unlike women, many men are perfectly capable of emotional dissociation. Such men can feel attached to one woman (usually the wife), lust after another woman, and be romantically involved with another.

Experts are still trying to find out how the human brain evolved to juggle different relationships at the same time. But one thing is certain: infidelity has many disadvantages.

Check out this magnificent Chelsea January signing

An ex Stamford Bridge favourite thinks that the Frenchman has all the attributes to be successful at Stamford Bridge under Frank Lampards tutelage

Floyd Hasselbaink has urged Chelsea to try and sign Lyon striker Moussa Dembele in the January transfer window.

The Blues were unable to bring in any new players over the summer due to a FIFA imposed transfer ban, but after seeing those sanctions lifted in December, Frank Lampard is free to make changes to his squad in the winter market.

Chelsea have relied heavily upon the talents of first choice forward Abraham since the season started, with Michy Batshuayi and Olivier Giroud restricted to back up roles.

Abraham has hit 12 goals in 20 Premier League outings, but Lampard has been tipped to bring in another front man to provide extra competition for the English international.

Dembele is thought to be near the top of his list of targets, despite the fact Lyon are determined to keep their price star.

Hasselbaink former QPR boss witnessed Dembeles talent up close while he was on Fulham books in the Championship, and thinks Drmbele would be a “magnificent signing” for Chelsea if a deal can be pushed over the line in the coming day.

Chelsea need to make new signings because you have to keep the rhythm going and just to get some kind of new blood coming through the door,” says ex Blues strike “It is always good when you make a signing. It gives everybody new energy, you know?

“Tammy Abraham is doing really well but he is the only one really who is doing really well. Batshuayi is not making a difference. Giroud, I think, he does not really fit in with their plans.

“They need to get a striker in. Moussa Dembele would be a magnificent signing for Chelsea. I know Moussa quite well. I faced him when I was QPR manager, he played ever so well and killed my defence.

“Having already tasted that and gone through that pressure, and if Chelsea buy him, he is familiar with that.

Hasselbaink went on to express his belief that Lampard is capable of turning Dembele into an even better player, while insisting that Abraham cannot shoulder Chelseas goalscoring burden on his own.

“Frank will improve him Dembele with Jody Morris, in his combination play, that can be better and improved,” he said.

“But what you can’t teach a player is being somewhere at the right time, and he has that a lot. Tammy has that as well, but at a big club, you have to have a couple of strikers who are really good. You need competition

10 Biblical Reasons Why Hell Might Not Exist

Today, many Christians believe in a place of eternal torment where sinners are sent after death, commonly referred to as “Hell” in English. Which is strange, because some say the evidence for eternal punishment as an integral part of the Christian religion is virtually nonexistent. See what you think!

10. The Bible Barely Mentions

Christian believers in the idea of Hell will tell you that it’s a place of punishment for sinners and evildoers. But does that idea have a scriptural basis? See Romans 6:7, “he that is dead is freed from sin.” So if a person’s sins are cleared with his or her death, then what’s with the additional punishment of Hell? Well, Romans 6:23 goes on to state that “the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Note that there is no mention of sinners being condemned to everlasting torture, they simply don’t get the reward for living a righteous life. Similarly, 2 Thessalonians 1:9 says that the punishment for those deemed wicked is not fiery torture, but destruction, “shut out from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his might.”John 3:36 strikes roughly the same note, declaring that sinners “will not see [eternal] life.”


Advertisements

Meanwhile, Jude 1:7 does mention “eternal fire,” but only in the context of Sodom and Gomorrah, which are literally destroyed by the eternal fire of God’s wrath. That leaves brief mentions in the Book of Revelation and two of Christ’s parables as the Biblical basis for the fiery Hell of popular imagination (more on those verses later). But if a place of eternal torment was truly intended as an integral component of Christianity, surely it’s strange that the Bible never seems to pay much attention to it?

9. Endless Punishment Doesn’t Make

From a Christian perspective, the idea of Hell is not only cruel and unusual, but totally excessive. Would a God described in the Bible as “a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right” decide that infinite punishment is just and fair? 1 John 4:8 states that God is the very concept of love. Would a loving father eternally torture his child as punishment, even if the child did something seriously wrong? Deuteronomy 19:21 famously states “an eye for an eye,” a principal of equal punishment that seems rather out of sync with the idea of literally endless torment as retribution for the sins of a short mortal life.In fact, the fiery Hell of popular imagination seems even harsher after considering God’s words in Jeremiah 7:31: “They have built the high places of Topheth in the Valley of Ben Hinnom to burn their sons and daughters in the fire—something I did not command, nor did it enter my mind.” If the idea of humans being burned in fire is so unappealing to God that it never even came into His thoughts, then what’s His deal with Hell?

8. Many References To Hell Were Mistranslations

When it comes to misconceptions about Hell, the popular 17th-century King James Version (KJV) of the Bible has a lot to answer for. For example, in the KJV, the prophet Jonah was in the “belly of Hell,” while David bafflingly insists that God would be with him even in Hell. Even Jesus pops down to Hell after his death on the cross.This obviously makes no sense. The Bible repeatedly states that Hell, whatever else it is, involves separation from God. So why is Jesus swinging by for a visit and why is David so sure that God would be with him there? In fact, if God is with David, why would he be in Hell in the first place? The answer is that the KJV lumps a whole bunch of different Greek and Hebrew words together under the English term “Hell.” The words in question are Hades, Sheol, Tartarus, and Gehenna, and they can have very different meanings in their original context.That’s particularly important to Hades and Sheol, which are roughly equivalent words in Greek and Hebrew. Neither can reasonably be translated as “place of torment,” which is what the word “Hell” now generally implies. A better translation might be “the grave” or “the afterlife.” Neither term carries a value judgment in the way that “Hell” does only the wicked go to Hell, but all souls are in Sheol after death. So David’s weird KJV claim that God would be with him in “Hell” is better translated as “the afterlife” or even “the depths.” While the KJV references Jesus being in Hell after his death on the cross, the New International Version makes a much less dramatic reference to him being in his “grave.” In fact, the New International Version only refers to Hell 15 times, compared to a whopping 54 mentions in the KJV.Other modern Bibles try to avoid such problems altogether by simply leaving “Sheol” and “Hades” untranslated, although this hasn’t quite undone the influence of the KJV. As the Encyclopedia Americana of 1942 put it: “Much confusion and misunderstanding has been caused through the early translators of the Bible persistently rendering the Hebrew Sheol and the Greek Hades and Gehenna by the word ‘Hell.’ The simple transliteration of these words by the translators of the revised editions of the Bible has not sufficed to appreciably clear up this confusion and misconception.

”7‘Gehenna’ Is Controversial,

So if “Hades” and “Sheol” don’t 8atch the modern perception of Hell, that leaves “Gehenna.” (“Tartarus” is also sometimes translated as “Hell,” but the term only appears once in the Bible, and not in relation to humans, so it has limited relevance here.) “Gehenna” is certainly the Biblical term most often rendered “Hell” in English. For example, the New International Version of Matthew 5:30 states: “If your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into Hell.” Scary, right?It all comes down to the controversy over the exact meaning of “Gehenna.” The word itself is a Greek rendering of the Hebrew terms ge-hinnom and ge-ben-hinnom, which mean “valley of the sons of Hinnom” and refer to an actual valley just outside ancient Jerusalem. The valley first appears in the Old Testament as the location of fiery pagan child sacrifices, which continue at least until 2 Kings 23:10, which describes how Josiah ravaged the site so “that no man might make his son or his daughter to pass through the fire to Moloch.” By the time of Jesus, the term was apparently used metaphorically to refer to a place of fiery destruction, and Jesus uses it 11 times in this context. It’s interesting to note that Hebrew had no word for such a concept and Jesus apparently felt no need to introduce one, preferring to make historical allusions instead.Or maybe not. According to some scholars, the valley of Gehenna had essentially become Jerusalem’s incinerator by the time of Christ. It featured constantly burning fires, which consumed the city’s garbage and the bodies of criminals and the disgraced. This tradition is quite old, but not supported by any real evidence or ancient accounts, although it is strange that Jesus refers to bodies being destroyed in Gehenna as well as souls.In any case, none of Christ’s references to Gehenna suggest any kind of eternal torment. Certainly, the fires of Gehenna are described as eternal, but Jesus specifically warns that they will be used to “destroy both soul and body.” Removing unrighteous people from existence, as that verse suggests, doesn’t sound particularly like torturing them forever. The second meaning can only be inferred by readers who already have that concept of Hell.

6. Jesus Didn’t Invent His Parable About

So is the idea of a fiery Hell completely alien to the Bible? Not at all. It’s right there in the Parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus, as recorded in Luke 16:19-31. In the story, a wealthy man lives it up while ignoring a beggar named Lazarus. But the pair experience a dramatic role reversal after their deaths, when Lazarus is carried off by angels to a blissful existence in the bosom of Abraham, while the rich man finds himself tormented in a blazing fire. The rich man begs Lazarus to take pity on him and bring him some water, but Abraham points out that the rich man had a great life and never took pity on Lazarus. Abraham also refuses to resurrect Lazarus to warn the rich man’s family to change their ways, arguing that they can choose to follow the prophets or not, but witnessing a miracle won’t suddenly make them good people.This is probably the closest the Bible gets to the modern conception of Hell. However, it’s important to note that the Bible doesn’t present it as a true story or a straightforward warning about the afterlife. Christ’s parables are clearly fictional stories designed to convey a message. As Warren Prestidge points out, the Rich Man and Lazarus is immediately preceded by the Parable of the Unjust Steward, where a servant defrauds his master and gets rewarded for it. If you ignored the deeper meaning of the parables, you’d conclude that Jesus thought stealing from your boss was great.In fact, Jesus didn’t even come up with the story in the first place. Scholars have long identified the general outline (a beggar is rewarded after death, while a rich man is punished) as an Egyptian folktale that became popular with Jewish religious teachers like the Pharisees, to the point that early Jewish literature contains at least seven versions of it. In Luke’s account, Jesus only brings the story up after the Pharisees mock his original Parable of the Unjust Steward, thus using one of their own favorite stories to demonstrate their hypocrisy. With this context, it’s hard to see the parable as a serious account of the Christian afterlife.

5. The Other Verses Aren’t Conclusive

The Bible also contains a reference to eternal fiery torture in Revelation 20:10-15, which refers to a “lake of burning sulfur” where entities are “tormented day and night for ever and ever.” Of course, the entities involved apparently include “death” and “Hades,” which are not actual people able to experience actual suffering. In other words, this is symbolism. Just as these aren’t literal people, neither is the location they are assigned to.That leaves the Parable of the Sheep and the Goats, as found in the Book of Matthew. In the story, which hovers somewhere between a parable and a straightforward sermon, Jesus appears to speak of the Last Judgment, when sinners will be banished “into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.” This section of the sermon/parable is fairly direct and clearly not part of a fictional story like the Rich Man and Lazarus. The parable ends with an apparent reference to unending torment: “Then [the unrighteous] will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.” For these reasons, the Sheep and the Goats is generally considered the key Bible passage behind the popular conception of Hell.However, many theologians argue that this interpretation of the Sheep and the Goats contradicts a number of other Bible verses, which explain the fate of the unrighteous at the Last Judgment as fiery destruction via “the second death.” If the unrighteous are destroyed, they can’t be tormented forever. Some Biblical scholars argue that, while the fire of punishment is described as eternal, that doesn’t mean the wicked will be punished there for all eternity. Rather, the punishment is total destruction in the holy fire, which has always existed. In other words, the eternal punishment (“aionios kolasis“) has lasted forever, but the punishment itself is simply immediate destruction.Jehovah’s Witnesses and other groups who not believe in Hell go even further, arguing that the word kolasis shouldn’t be translated as “punishment” at all. Citing its derivation from a Greek term for pruning trees, they suggest that it would better be rendered “cutting off,” “destruction,” or even “death.” The last interpretation would turn “aionios kolasis” into “eternal death,” making a nice contrast with the “eternal life” promised the righteous. The “pruning trees” meaning also invokes John 15:6: “If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned.” Kolasis only appears twice in the New Testament, but the Old Testament in Greek uses it to refer to punishment in general and to death as a form of punishment, suggesting that “eternal punishment” and “eternal death” are both valid translations.

4. Even The Church Fathers Couldn’t Agree On Hell

Since many hold the early church fathers as the authority on matters of faith and doctrine, many would find it surprising that even they couldn’t agree if Hell existed and, if so, what it actually was. Justin Martyr, Clement of Alexandria, Tertullian, and Cyprian were among those that held that Hell was a literal place of fiery torment. Origen and Gregory of Nyssa disagreed, countering that Hell was simply separation from God. While the idea of eternal fiery damnation can be found as early as the apocryphal second-century Apocalypse of Peter, it doesn’t seem to have become dominant in Christian thinking until around the fifth century AD.Ironically, this view was heavily inspired by a non-Christian, the Greek philosopher and mathematician Plato, whom the French historian Georges Minois credited with “the greatest influence on traditional views of Hell” of all the early philosophers. Plato’s Story of Er features an afterlife in which sinners are punished or rewarded in proportion to their misdeeds in life. Whatever your views on Hell’s existence, Plato’s sin-specific punishments definitely have no Biblical support, but the philosopher’s ideas can still be detected in many popular versions of the Christian afterlife, most notably Dante’s Inferno.In modern times, many Christian denominations have moved away from Saint Augustine’s conception of Hell as a physical place beneath the Earth. Even the venerable Catholic Church has apparently decided to go with the flow, with the Catechism of the Catholic Church, approved by Pope John Paul II in 1992, declaring that Hell is simply a state of “definitive self-exclusion from communion with God and the blessed.”

3. Some Aspects Of Hell Seem Distinctly

Plato might have had the greatest role, but non-Abrahamic influences on Hell date back a long way before the Greeks pioneered philosophy. The Ancient Egyptian religion, for example, featured a cavern containing a “lake of fire” where the souls of the wicked were punished for their transgressions. The early Mesopotamians also believed that the underworld lay underground, although it was more dim and miserable than a place of eternal punishment.A particularly interesting comparison can be made between the popular idea of Hell and Zoroastrianism, an ancient religion originating in what is now Iran. In the earliest Zoroastrian texts, the souls of the sinful are judged after death and condemned to eternal punishment in the underworld, which the Book Of Arda Viraf describes as a pit full of fire, “smoke, stench and demons.” The souls are tortured according to the severity of their sins in life and the whole thing is presided over by Angra Mainyu, the great evil spirit, “who ever ridiculed and mocked the wicked in hell” for following him instead of their creator god.That sounds remarkably like the Hell of modern pop culture. And what’s just as remarkable is how many of those details have no basis in the Bible. Zoroastrian hell is staffed by demons and ruled by a devil figure, whereas the Christian Devil and his followers have no role in the afterlife and are the one group clearly stated to be destined for punishment in “Tartarus.” There’s certainly no reason to believe that a Christian hell would make the punishment fit the crime, whereas the demons of Zoroastrianism seem to delight in devising inventive tortures for each particular sin. In fact, the Book Of Arda Viraf is distinctly reminiscent of Dante’s Inferno.

2. EvenThe Concept Is Alien To The Old Testament

the thin evidence for Hell in the New Testament looks vast in comparison to the Old Testament, which clearly has no concept of Hell at all. Rather, scriptures like Job 3:11-18 suggest that death is simply a cessation: “Why did I not perish at birth, and die as I came from the womb . . . For now I would be lying down in peace; I would be asleep and at rest . . . There the wicked cease from turmoil, and there the weary are at rest.” Pretty self-explanatory. Ecclesiastes 3:19 sounds even more skeptical about the possibility of an afterlife, sourly observing that “Man’s fate is like that of the animals; the same fate awaits them both: As one dies, so dies the other. All have the same breath; man has no advantage over the animal. Everything is meaningless.”Even at the very start of the Bible, in Genesis 2:16-17 and 3:19, Adam and Eve’s punishment for breaking God’s instructions and eating the forbidden fruit was not the threat of hellfire, but rather a promise that they will eventually die, “for dust you are and to dust you will return.” If Adam and Eve were at risk of being tormented forever, wouldn’t they have been warned of that? Would God lie and tell them they were going back to the dust if his plan was really to lock them in a furnace? When Cain kills Abel, God sentences him to wander the land and even gives him a mark to stop people from killing him. If judgment awaits in the afterlife, surely that was a bit counterproductive?

1. Hell Is Little Scare Tactics

While religions like the Jehovah’s Witnesses and Seventh-day Adventists do not teach the doctrine of Hell, many churches and denominations still cling to the idea. But why?It cannot be denied that, throughout history, the idea of Hell has been used as a scare tactic to keep people in line. An 18th-century preacher named Jonathan Edwards became famous for his fire-and-brimstone sermon “Sinners In The Hands Of An Angry God,” which warned that God could “cast wicked men into Hell at any moment.” So terrifying was his depiction of hell that other clergymen had to rush to the aid of distraught members of the congregation. Even in modern times, the theme of “believe or you will go to Hell” is common, complete with vivd descriptions of grinding teeth, the shrieks of the damned, and the odor of scorching flesh. Writing on the topic, one author describes having seen a young child scream in church, confessing that he was “afraid of Hell.”Others, such as Queen Mary I of England, have used the doctrine as an excuse for perpetrating barbarism. Before sentencing a group of Protestants to be burned alive, she supposedly declared: “As the souls of heretics are hereafter to be eternally burning in Hell, there can be nothing more proper than for me to imitate the Divine vengeance by burning them on earth.”Like all scare tactics, the idea of hellfire can exert a powerful grip on believers. However, the Biblical evidence for the horrifying doctrine is rather lacking. In fact, the Parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus, often cited as Biblical proof of the doctrine of Hell, actually has the opposite message. At the end of the parable, Abraham declines to send Lazarus back to Earth to warn sinners of some terrifying fate awaiting them in the afterlife, arguing that righteousness can only come from belief, rather than fear of some supernatural punishment.My mission is to turn the sprinkler on hell.

3 Easy Step On How To Smell Nice Without Perfume(just three)

1. Buy an essential oil (your favourite scent from the health food store) and dilute it with a carrier oil, like almond oil.

2. Spread coconut oil on your body after you shower. It will give you an appealing scent and make you smell like the beach.

3. Convince yourself to go fragrances free and let your natural scent (ie. pheromones) attract others to you because pheromones actually have a biological purpose — to attract the opposite sex. Sounds funny, right?

Perfume Is Dangerous To The Health- A Must Read

Call it a perfume, cologne, toilette or whatever, the truth is weve all been victimized by it. How?

Do you remember having a headache or sneezing badly, because of someone else perfume? Yes, the perfume was so strong that regardless of how you tried you couldn’t resist the fragrance, right?

Well, it happened because you’re inhaling potential toxins and harmful substances that are causing a reaction in your body. And as weird as this may sound, it is potentially just as bad as “second-hand smoke”.

Research has even shown that there are MORE chemicals in perfume and cologne than in cigarette smoke. And as a matter of fact, each puff of cigarette smoke has 250 chemicals while perfume and cologne can have up to 3000 different chemicals that make up a signature scent.

It is, however, important to state here that about 95 per cent of the chemicals used in fragrances are synthetic, petroleum-based compounds.

And it’s s normal for these chemicals to cause allergic reactions like sneezing, itchy watery eyes, wheezing and headaches.

Also fragrance can exacerbate asthma, environmental illness (EI) and migraines.

According to the findings of an investigation into fragrances, perfumes, and colognes by the Environmental Working Group (EWG):

16 per cent of the reviewed products contained ingredients that may cause cancer

5 per cent may contain harmful impurities linked to cancer or other health problem

18 per cent contained penetration enhancers that increase exposures to carcinogens and other ingredients of concern

And As odd as this may sound, especially if you’re hearing it for the first time, perfumes are not good for you because they are made of carcinogenic substances that make them hazardous to your health.

98 per cent of products contained ingredients not assessed for safety in cosmetics or with insufficient data

76 per cent contained ingredients that are allergens

13 per cent of products posed other potential health concern.

Here is what you can do if you’re disturbed by the fragrance

If you’re one of the many people that feel ill when exposed to fragrances, it is advisable for you to opt for fragrance-free varieties of all your personal care items, or at least choosing products that don’t t contain synthetic fragrance.

You should also inform your family members and friends, especially your co-worker, who wear perfumes that upset your system that you’re reacting to the chemicals in their perfume/cologne, etc.

Do this politely for a positive result; however, if they refuse to oblige, continue to tell them politely until they do.

Brandt Jean, the brother of Botham Jean, received an award Tuesday from a law enforcement organization for his “display of empathy and forgiveness” toward ex-cop Amber Guyer.

Guyer, the former Dallas police officer who killed Botham Jean, was sentenced to 10 years in prison in October after she was convicted of murder.

In an emotional and stunning moment in the courtroom, Brandt Jean asked State District Judge Tammy Kemp if he could hug Guyer. The two embraced and whispered to each other after Guyger was sentenced.

“If you truly are sorry, I know I can speak for myself, I forgive you. I know if you go to God and ask him, he will forgive you,” Brandt Jean told Guyger during victim impact statements following the sentencing.

The Institute of Law Enforcement Administration selected 18-year-old Brandt Jean to receive the 2019 Ethical Courage Award. The presentation took place at the organizations Plano office.

Botham Jean, 26, was sitting in his apartment when Guyger walked in and shot him. She said she thought she was entering her own apartment and believed Jean was an intruder.

The September 2018 shooting sparked protests in Dallas and across the country, with many activists saying Jeans death was another example of police brutality against people of color.

Botham Jean was black and Guyger is white.

After the conviction and sentencing, Brandt Jeans act of forgiveness helped the community heal, said Gregory Smith, the director of the Institute of Law Enforcement Administration.

“Despite an unimaginable loss, he saw the humanity in the person responsible for his brothers death,” Smith said in a written statement. “He saw her pain and regret, and had the ability to show empathy, caring and forgiveness.

5 major secrets spouses keep that hurt marriages

1. Unhappiness in the Marriage

Many people wander into a place where they are discontent with their marriage. The reasons for keeping it a secret could be fear of hurting feelings, thinking the problems will eventually sort themselves out, or maybe they just don’t want to admit that they have become unhappy. Sometimes it’s no one’s fault in particular. Sometimes bad habits have developed by both that just need work. In the end, though, the problem(s) is (are) not going to go away by themselves. They have to be brought into the open and dealt with. Otherwise, you and your spouse will continue to separate.

2. Fulfilling Intimacy Desires from Someone or Something Other Than a Spouse

It’s easy to see how an affair is hurtful to a marriage. But it’s the subtle things that are easily missed or justified long before an affair starts that lay the groundwork for disconnection. S** is designed to build intimacy between a husband and wife. Sexual satisfaction and fulfillment are reserved for a spouse. When sex is lacking, it needs to be addressed, talked about, and resolved. Counseling should be sought. When a spouse secretly seeks to satisfy him/herself sexually through masturbation, pornography, or an affair, it destroys intimacy. The soul bonds with those other things rather than the spouse. With every sexual engagement apart from the spouse, the desire for that spouse gets duller until the fire finally goes out.

3. Financial Decisions

No matter who is the primary breadwinner, in marriage, the money belongs to both of you, unless you have come to some sort of divided monetary agreement. Disagreements need to be talked about and worked out, not hidden. When one party makes financial decisions in secret that violate the couple’s agreement, it is a form of financial infidelity. One of the most important ingredients for a thriving marriage is trust. Keeping spending secrets is a major violation of trust and a fast track to disaster.

4. Disagreement

Quietly disagreeing with a decision a spouse makes undermines the relationship in two ways. First, it’s a silent lie. Dishonesty equals disunity. Second, feelings of disagreement have to settle somewhere, and when they are unresolved, they usually turn into resentment. Third, a married couple should always think of themselves as having one brain. Working through disagreement causes us to make more informed decisions, even when it is frustrating. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Ginsberg couldn’t have been more opposite than deceased Justice Antonin Scala. However, in a moving tribute to Scala when he died, she said that when they disagreed her final opinion was always better because he was able to clearly state all of the weak points in his dissent. Silent dissent makes the relationship and the spouse weaker.

5. Past Relationships

Our past relationships significantly impact our current ones. We bring all of the wounds, baggage, and dysfunction they have caused into the marriage. Hiding it only leaves a spouse confused and separated. It is like a wall between one another. Do you have to share with one another all of the things you did physically in previous relationships? No. But it is important for them to know the level of intimacy and how you were affected by it. It’s good for them to know what went right and what went wrong. It helps them to know you better and how your past relational experience has formed you.

A Blind Man’s Love

A man married a beautiful girl. He loved her very much. One day she developed a skin disease. Slowly she started to lose her beauty. It so happened that one day her husband left for a tour. While returning he met with an accident and lost his eyesight. However, their married life continued as usual. But as days passed she lost her beauty gradually. Blind husband did not know this and there was not any difference in their married life. He continued to love her and she also loved him very much. One day she died. Her death brought him a great sorrow. He finished all her last rites and wanted to leave that town.

A man from behind called and said, “Now how will you be able to walk all alone? All these days your wife used to help you”. He replied, “I am not blind. I was acting because if she knew l could see her skin condition due to a disease, it would have pained her more than her disease. I didn’t love her for her beauty alone, but I fell in love with her caring and loving nature. So I pretended to be blind. I only wanted to keep her happy”.

Moral:

When you truly love someone, you will go to any extent to keep your loved one happy and sometimes it is good for us to act blind and ignore one another’s short comings in order to be happy. The Beauty will fade with time, but heart and soul will always be the same. Love the person for what he/she is from inside, not from outside.

8 Signs Your Husband Or Boyfriend Is Gay (Watch Out!!!)

Here are 8 signs we brought up to know if you husband or boyfriend is a gay as some men decide to hide it from their wives or girlfriend because they may hate or hurt them.

Here are the 8 signs;

1. Looks at other men in a flirtatious way

When youre out in public, does he spend too much time looking at other men? Is he fond of winking at people? Does he get visibly upset when someone does not return a compliment about his physical appearance?

2. Feigning attention in church and prayer groups

Have you noticed a lack of interest in spiritual issues? Does it ever seem as if he’s just using the church as an excuse to spend time around young men? Does he volunteer to mentor in all a male groups?

3. Overly fastidious about his appearance and the home

Natural men have a certain amount of grit about them. They sweat and they smell. Homosexuals often abhor this sort of thing and will also be incredibly particular about the cleanliness of the home. Does your man tweeze his eyebrows, trim his pubic hairs or use face moisturizers? Is he picky about brand name shampoos? Does he spend more time getting ready for a night out than you do?

4. Gym membership but no interest in sports

Gay men use the gym as a place to socialize and to have secret liaisons in the bathrooms. They like to work out their bodies without the competition of sports play. Afterwards, they use the showers and steam rooms to engage in sexual activity beyond the prying eyes of women. If your man returns from the gym too exhausted to talk or have sex, which is a worrisome sign.

5. Clothes that are too tight and too “trendy”

Gay men don’t need words to communicate their availability for sex “hookups.” They silently broadcast the news by showing off their lean, hard bodies in designer clothing labels. If your husband owns skinny jeans and looks at his buttocks in the mirror or if he wears an inordinate number of small a sized t-shirts, it is probably worthwhile to pay more attention to his private activities.

6. Strange sexual demands

Fetishism is a sign that a man is seeking a harder thrill beyond the normal intimacy of heterosexual relations. The woman may not appeal to the deep desires that are coming to the surface as the marriage drags on. If there is a sudden interest in sodomy, sadomasochism, lubricants, roleplay, sex toys or other nontraditional intercourse methods, this is clearly an indication of deep emotional abnormalities.

7. Too many friendly young male friends

Someone who makes an extra effort to surround themselves with younger men should raise concerns in any community. If this is the case with your husband, ask yourself if he prefers their company to that of women. Do they touch each other or embrace in long hugs? Do they exchange expensive, personal gifts like scarves or cologne?

8. Sassy, sarcastic and ironic around his friends

A man who is secretly engaged in homosexual activity with others may exhibit feminine qualities when they get together in a group. In a sense, he has “let his hair down” and this will be seen in excessive back talk and speaking with ones hands.

Tips on how to improve your relationship this year 2020 (check it out)

While every relationship is different, no relationship is perfect. By doing these 10 things to improve your bond, you won’t only ensure a quality relationship with your partner, but you’ll also prove that you’re determined to work for one.

1. Learn to communicate with your partner

Communication is the determining factor of success for every relationship. It’s nice to ask how your partner’s day went, but it’s boring when you ask over and over again. Enhance your conversation by putting in the extra effort to question your significant other on something more specific. Through this adjusted approach, you avoid falling into routine and begin holding more meaningful discussions.

2. Go on regular date night

Amongst both of your busy schedules and nonstop responsibilities, the most foolproof way to guarantee that you make time for each other is to set a night every month dedicated to doing just that. Regardless of if you’re looking to spice up your relationship or wanting an activity that doesn’t include Netflix, the commitment to go on a date is one night — but the happiness that comes from it will last much longer.

3. Express your appreciation

The comfort that a relationship brings is the reason we tend to overlook what our partners do and treat their acts of kindness as our forms of expectation instead. To put it honestly, your partner doesn’t have to fill your gas tank or buy your favorite ice cream — he or she chooses to, and your acknowledgment of this type of effort will reinforce your partner to be thoughtful and remind you to feel thankful.

4. Tweak your schedule

We know — you’re independent and don’t plan on stopping your life for anyone (and you shouldn’t have to). Even though you have other commitments outside of your relationship, it’s a kind gesture to compare both of your schedules to see if it’s possible to spend more time together.

Maybe your partner can go to the gym a little earlier to attend the movie premiere you wanted to attend, or maybe you can wake up earlier to get your projects done so that you can make it to your partner’s intramural game. While you shouldn’t have to sacrifice your life to satisfy your partner, your ability to compromise should be enough to make him or her happy.

5. Remember the small things

Another way to add meaning to your conversation is to truly listen to what your significant other is saying — and talk about it in the future. If your partner mentions a conversation that he or she wants to have with a manager, take note on your calendar and remember to ask about it the day of. The fact that you’re able to refer back to the topics and details that your partner spoke about is one that will touch him or her. Overall, it’s the little things that mean the most, and there’s no better way to show this than starting with your relationship.

6. Let go of the past

As a culprit for many potential arguments and the underlying issue for future ones, what happens in the past doesn’t always stay there — and it’s difficult to move forward in a relationship when you’re still thinking about what happened in it from another time.

If you find yourself continuing to dwell on the past, it might be a sign to take a step back and consider why — are you naturally less forgiving or is what happened something you can’t seem to forgive? By focusing on the reason for this recurring feeling, you’ll find more clarity within yourself and what you want from the relationship with your partner.

7. Show your affection

Along with expressing your gratitude to your partner, expressing actions to show how much you care about him or her is also suggested. From grabbing your partner’s hand at a restaurant to going to bed together at the end of the night, you know how you feel about your partner, and he or she should be able to witness it as well.

8. Learn your partner’s boundaries

Does your partner wish to be left alone when he or she is upset? Does he or she mind that you want to text throughout the day? These questions are simple, but the answers to them will help you understand the boundaries of your partner— and stop you from crossing them. Overall, your partner’s sense of privacy is most likely different from yours, and knowing his or her boundaries is the best way to respect them.

9. Know when to apologize

Sometimes being right isn’t as important as being compassionate. Whereas conflicts with your significant other will vary, not every argument is a challenge that needs to be won. Don’t get us wrong — we aren’t telling you to take blame for everything, but to decide which battles are worth fighting for. Although there’s glory in knowing you’re right, there’s maturity in apologizing during an argument that isn’t as important as the person you’re arguing with.

10. Make time to focus on yourself

How we feel about ourselves is how we’ll act in a relationship — for example, if you lack confidence in yourself, you’ll look for assurance in your relationship. To prevent any toxic behaviors from happening with your partner, it’s essential to have a strong sense of self. Invest in a new hobby, make plans with some friends, and take steps in discovering who you are as a person. By falling in love with yourself, you’ll naturally be your own best version for the person who happens to be falling in love with you.

2 Easy Steps To become successful in life

So many people are successful today due to hard work and some decision. You can be successful today if you follow these 2 easy steps.

1. Get rid of distractions

Distraction comes when you’re near to achieve a goal. Meaningless things cause distractions. Learn to focus on what is the most important. Never loose focus, stay away from distractions.

2. Learn from your mistakes

Ultimately, failures can be our greatest teacher. Focus on your progress not perfection. If you can learn from your mistakes, you’ll become stronger and this can help you become successful faster.

How to make New year resolutions

Be clear about what you want.

For example, if you want to take better care of yourself this year, what does that look like? Perhaps you are ready to quit smoking, to take on a consistent exercise regimen, or to eat healthier.

Understand why you want it.

Why is it important to you to take better care of yourself? Perhaps you want to set a good example for your children or grandchildren. Maybe you’re concerned about aging or hereditary diseases, and you’re taking preventative measures. Or maybe you’re just at a point in your life where your health has become more important than instant gratification. Whatever the reason, getting to the root cause of the “why” will help you stick to your resolution when you’d rather quit.

Be specific about what you want.

This specificity should take two roles: one, of a specific final result that you’ll work towards, and two, specifics about how you’ll achieve that result.

Be committed to the outcome.

Commitment is the difference between a successful accomplishment vs. another resolution that fell apart before Valentine’s Day. Be clear and firm in your commitment, and do not waver.

Put it in writing.

People who write down their goals and resolutions are more likely to achieve them than people who don’t.

Chart your progress

It has often been said that “whatever you measure will improve” and this is particularly true of New Year’s Resolutions. Taking time to measure your progress (preferably in a chart or other visual tool) can go a long way towards spurring you on to success.

Get support.

Whenever possible, find an accountability partner or someone with the same goal, and support each other throughout the process. People who commit to exercise with a partner (or group) are far more likely to stick with their exercise programs than people who choose to go it alone.

How to stay awake on New year’s Eve

Today’s is New year’s Eve and we know that there are lots and lots of parties today and if you want to be part of one but you are afraid you might sleep off then have a look at some tips that could come in handy.

Talk to people.

If you’re around friends or family for New Year’s, make conversation with them to stay awake. Keep your mind entertained by being social. Listen to stories, flashbacks e.t.c.

Stay on your feet.

Dance, walk around the house or even challenge your friends to a push up contest. Whatever you do, just make sure not to sit or lay down. You don’t want to get too comfortable or you might end up drifting off to sleep.

Do fun things.

Play games with your friends and family. Play pranks on people. Take turns making New Year’s resolutions with everyone. Do anything that entertains your mind and keeps you up.
If it’s legal in your city, shooting off fireworks can be really exciting. Just be very careful around fire and supervise little kids.
Taking pictures of everyone in funny poses can make for a really great time.

Help out.

If you’re at a party, you can help the cook prepare food for everyone. You can even play bartender and make cocktails for everyone. Volunteer to clean up a bit as well. Not only will helping out ingratiate you with the host, it will keep your mind focused and awake.

Freelance writing is a way to earn online income if you don’t mind earning some of your money with active work by forbes

One of the first websites I wrote for paid me $150 per article. This wasn’t a lot of money, but I used the opportunity to improve my writing skills and get my name out there. I don’t write as much for other people anymore, but I do know plenty of freelance writers who are earning $250, $500, and even $1,000 or more per article.

Some freelance writers I know are even earning six figures or more writing from home each year. This includes blogger Holly Johnson, who earns over $200,000 per year writing articles for other websites. Johnson also offers a course you can check out if you want to become a freelance writer but need some help getting started.

3 Steps to Be a Freelance Writer

There are many ways to become a freelance writer. I only know from experience on how I became a freelance writer:

1. Figure Out Your Writing Niche

The first step is usually the hardest step, and while you can side-step and go to step #2, I highly suggest you take the time to sit and think about your freelance writing niche.

Your niche is what will help you get paid for your writing.

Some expert tips to figuring out your profitable freelance writing niche:

  • Look at other successful freelance writers and see what niche they are in
  • Leverage your current job
  • Use past experiences and hobbies (you may enjoy traveling, love the newborn stage of life, be into the Keto Diet)
  • Look at big brands (they most definitely have the budget for a freelance writer. Think pet food, clothing, coffee, laptops, feminine products even! The list can go on)
  • Choose a niche from the list of top niches
  • Pick a few niches to try out

When looking at your niche, I like to think of it like this: what do I like to write about, have experience in or WANT to learn more about?

What’s in the middle is your niche idea.

But, once you find a niche or a couple of niches, I want you to do an extra step that a lot of new freelance writers don’t do.

It’s researching your freelance writing niche.

Google your niche or search for businesses in that niche. For example, here’s a blog post showing the top 25 best selling baby products. Find those products and run another search for the product owner and look at their brand as a whole.

2. Create Samples to Build Your Freelance Writing Portfolio

Businesses won’t hire writers without seeing their…..writing!!

The best way to show them this is with your freelance writing portfolio.

This showcases your best writing samples. But, how do you get these samples? The top three ways are:

  • Guest posting
  • Start a blog
  • Create them yourself

Okay. So, you know you need samples to land a freelance writing job. And you know how to create them, but what should your sample be about?

I suggest you write a blog post to show your writing unless you know your service. For example, if you absolutely know you want to be a press release writer, then don’t write a blog post as your sample. Write a mock press release!

But, for a lot of us, we have no idea about all of this and if we can even make it as a freelance writer, so make it easy on yourself and write a short blog post of about 700 words.

The topic of your blog post should be based on the niche you chose….generally. I’m going to tell you a secret now:

When I landed my first real gig, I did not have any samples in the niche of the job I landed. I landed a job with a newspaper in the automotive section, and my samples were about: cleaning, e-learning, and mental health!

So, while it is POSSIBLE to land a gig with ANY type of sample writing topic, I suggest that it’s much easier if you have a sample in your chosen niche.

Now, to find content ideas, you can totally check out my video to help you out! And make sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel for more videos!

As you can see, there are many ways to find that perfect blog post topic for your sample.

3. Have an Online Presence

Okay.

For a lot of people interested in freelance writing, this is a hard part of all of this – getting online!!!

Like actually showing your face and being on social media.

For many, the thought of putting themselves out there is too much (can I give you a hug? Can I hold your hand? I’m here for you!!!) – You can do it!

What I suggest to start getting online is to sign up for Twitter and LinkedIn.

These two social media platforms have given me thousands of dollars in freelance writing jobs.

Another way to start getting online is to have your own service-based blog.

A blog is where you can start attracting those high-paying jobs instead of chasing jobs.

It’s a place to house your portfolio and market your services. Here is my freelance writer website.

And, you know what?

It’s a thousand times easier to land a freelance writing job when you have a website showcasing your work and service.

5 sure ways to stop fighting and start loving the person you love

For a lot of couples, even though there might be love between them, there’s still an underlying tension or distance that seems to always be there.

The fights, arguments and disagreements just seem to erupt out of no where and neither person knows how to stop the pattern.

Some people believe they just need to learn how to “fight fair and that fighting is healthy in relationships.

We don’t believe that fighting is healthy or learn how to “fight fair because you don’t have to fight at all.

The truth is you can look in another direction to resolve your differences.

These 5 ways to create more love have worked for us and others and we invite you to try them in your relationship right now.

1. Let go of the tug-of-war rope

Even though you may think continuing to plant your feet and tug as hard as you can on the “rope” will win the argument for you, in the long term, it won’t. When you let go, you can see how you trigger each other and how you pull away.

Letting go of the rope doesn’t mean sucking in your hurts and putting on a smiling face when you don’t feel like it.

It means being “real” with yourself and with your partner about what you want without blaming the other.

It means consciously deciding not to react from old patterns but rather to make other choices–because the old ways you’ve been dealing with this haven’t worked.

It means being open to another way of looking at the situation and resolving it.

When one person lets go of the “rope,” there’s nothing to fight against and a new way of seeing it all can emerge.

2. Use Magic Words when you talk to each other

It’s a fact

When it comes to your relationships and getting the love you want

All words are NOT created equal.

Some words cause fights and arguments and others don’t.

Here’s a great strategy from our “Magic Relationship Words program you can use right now to cut fights, conflict and disagreements in half

Think about this for a second

One of the ways that many people keep a fight or disagreement going is by blaming and accusing.

You might say something like this

“How could you say or do that?” or “You don’t respect me because you said or did that.

Instead of using phrases that push your partner into being defensive and push him or her away, express what you want more of from your heart.

You might use a phrase like this to help you stay connected even when it’s difficult to do it…

If you think your partner is spending too much time away from the house and away from you, the tendency might be to accuse him or her of ignoring you and the relationship.

Use this phrase instead to open the conversation rather than close it…

“I’d love to spend more time with you. How can we make that work?”

3. Be a goods finder rather than a wrongs finder

To a great degree, the success of your relationship relies on what you both focus on.

Do you focus on what you want and enjoy in the other person or do you focus on what irritates you?
It is pretty “normal” to get caught up in only seeing what irritates you in your partner.
It just seems that as hard as you TRY to not focus on that irritating habit, it just gets bigger.
Believe it or not, many fights and disagreements are born from these petty irritations.
To stop fighting, try this for one day
When your irritation comes up, change it in your mind to something you like, love and appreciate about your partner.
Keep focusing all day on that aspect of him or her and watch what happens.

4. Appreciate Your Partner

Many fights, arguments and ill feelings begin and are kept going because one or both people don’t feel appreciated in the relationships and they don’t know how to get the appreciation they needs so they do the second best things
They pick fights and start arguments to get some attention.
If you feel like you aren’t appreciated, your tendency may probably be to withhold appreciating your partner because who wants to appreciate someone else if they don’t feel appreciated themselves.
In order to break the cycle, just try some sincere appreciation anyway.
And this appreciation should go further than “thank you,” although that’s nice to hear too.
* Important *
When you appreciate someone be specific in your appreciation.
It might be a loving thought that flits through your mind but you never say because you either assume that he or she knows or you don’t say it because you don’t feel appreciated yourself.
If you want to cut the distance and the fights between the two of you, start appreciating.

5. Stop holding grudges and holding onto being right

People hold grudges for years about things that sometimes that can’t even remember exactly what happened to cause them.
If you’re holding onto a grudge and punishing your partner for something that happened long ago but is not happening now and you find that you bring it up over and over
To stop fighting, find a way to resolve it.
Don’t hang onto it.
When you hold onto a grudge and to being right, there’s no room for listening to your partner.
One way to “let go” of your grudge is to open to listening to what your partner has to say with new “ears.”
Listen as if this is something new and listen for any truth at all in what he or she says.
If you want to cut your fights in half, resolve old issues, let them go, and focus only on the issue at hand.

The Benefits

Being freelance does require a certain amount of self-reliance – there’s no regular, monthly salary, sick or holiday pay to fall back on – so it’s not for everyone. However, for any writer brave enough to become freelance the benefits are enormous. They:

  • leave the daily 9 to 5 behind as they are able to choose their own hours
  • have the freedom to choose who they work for. So, if they want to, freelance writers can only write about dog training, cats, knitting, backpacking etc
  • do not have to engage in a daily commute as most freelance writers use a room in their home as an office
  • can tailor their work environment to their own needs with daylight simulation bulbs, ergonomic furniture etc, that would probably not be available in a traditional office
  • can take holidays without having to work around colleagues
  • can choose how many hours they’d like to work so, they can work for 5, 20 or 40 hours a week
  • Earn your desired amount

How To Make A Rich, Classy Chic Fall In Love With You

Most of the rich girls in town really are in search of true love. So if you are a guy who can give them the love and tender care they so crave for, here are some tips that can help you get them loving up fully.

These rich executive Chic’s really do not have time for a long talk. If you know the right thing to do, and how to position yourself you will have them eating from your palms.

1. Dress smart

These rich Chic’s really do not care about your money, but they appreciate a guy who has a good dress sense and a good shoe to go with it. Now I do not mean you should break the bank. These Chic’s are not about the fashion brand. Guy if you have an “OK shirt, “starch and iron it men! Look neat and wells groomed and you are good to make a catch.

2. Talk Intelligently

An empty head does no one any good. These rich Chic’s have seen it all, so do not try to impress. Just make sense and get reasonable information on every subject you can lay your hands on. “Guy no be say you dey go do exam oh!” Give intelligent advice and do not barge in on conversations. Just carry yourself as an informed person humbly. Pride turns off these rich Chic’s.

3. Find out what she loves

Get to know what she loves and be informed about it. Love what she loves with all the passion in you, and you will reap the benefits of your longsuffering. Be the person to volunteer to be part of their hobbies etc. Show interest genuinely.

4. Make her laugh

Don’t try to be a comedian. You will just fool yourself. Just have a good sense of humour. No dirty jokes, please.

5. Be busy

Do not run to them or answer their calls, anytime they call you. You too form busy. These rich girls appreciate you when you have a vision and you are working at it. Do not just paint dreams. Work towards your dreams

6. Be independent

Never ask for help financially or in any other form. Do not even ask for contacts or connection, even when you know they have it. Be a self made man. This guy! The mistake most guys make is that they quickly start asking for help when they find out that the rich chic is into them and loves spending. Guy, even when she gives you money, pretend not to want it at first, make her beg you to take it. Never ask for any favour. Always pay the bill when you go out.

7. Be real

If you cannot afford the hotels they frequently go to, tell them so. You can say “Right now, I cannot afford those kinds of hotels, but it is a matter of time I will take you there. But today let us go to mama Bose’s place They will appreciate you for being real and aspiring to get to the top.

8. Use Poetry

Use lovely, romantic poetic words to tell them how you feel about them. Do a handwritten letter. They get cards all the time. Be different unique and creative.

9. Be confident

Exude an aura of confidence. Never be intimidated about their cars, friends, house and all that. Do not be proud because those kinds of Chic’s cannot stand proud dudes that is why they are not dating guys from their class.

10. Show love for the needy: Women generally love a caring man. Genuinely show concern for the poor and you are top on their list.

11. Be a gentleman

Genuinely help her. Care for her. You should carry her bags. Make this part of you. Show concern for her and everything around her. If you do, your score is adding up.

12. Be Scarce

Just stay away for sometimes and create scarcity. The heart grows fonder when the object of its attention is scarce.

13. Do not ever demand sex

Never demand sex. If she does, brush it away. You can just give her a soft kiss and says I respect and honour you that is why I will not sleep with you. I am not like every other guy. I love you for you. With or without sex, I am your man. Even if she insists, tell her you will not. Guy! Matter don’t end. She will come looking for you all the time. Those words will eat up her head.

14. Do not ask to drive her car

Wait till you get your own. Do not jump at it the first time she asks. Have some dignity, please. Ah! Ah!!

15. Be Loyal

Do no double date. Let her know she is the only “sugar in your small cup of tea” Say it always. These Chic’s can sometimes be insecure.

Latest Dating Traps You Have To Avoid

Gone are the days when our dating life simply meant being in love, going out for dates and the lucky ones later got married and a few unfortunates ended their relationships and move on. Definitely, there were problems in their paradise but quite a different set of hurdles that the millennials, perhaps cannot, relate to these days. The WhatApp and dating app generation have their new world of dating life and with it comes trends, which has a lasting effect on their life. Interestingly, the dating trend that is keeping the youngsters busy these days is called ‘fireworking’. Yes, you read it right. But do not mistake it to the fireworks that lit the sky during Diwali. Or, maybe there is some.

Last year, ‘stashing’ became the most popular dating trend and it spread like a wildfire that caught the fancy of many. Fire working is just the opposite of stashing, which meant keeping a dirty secret. When a person treats his love life like a dirty secret by keeping his lover away from friends and family, his lover becomes the victim of stashing. Now, fire working is exactly it’s opposite. The person who indulges in fire working is called a fire worker, who dates a person only to show off the partner to the world. And he does that for some reasons either to make an ex-partner jealous or just to prove that he has an exciting love life. However, the most important ingredient which goes missing in such relationships is love. The other partner who becomes a victim of fire working may not even be aware of it. So, let’s look at a few signs of fire working.

You are treated like an eye candy

If you feel that you are being treated like eye candy, do not dismiss your doubts as baseless. Fire workers want their partner to be perfect all the time because their only intention is to show off the lover. So, the stress to appear immaculate in front of others is not without a reason.

Frequent social media updates with the partner

Most people love updating pictures with a lover on social media once they make their relationship public. But if a partner falls in love, or pretends to fall in love, just to display it on his social media, this almost qualifies as fire working. Red flag: your partner taking too many selfies with you and uploading it on his Facebook, Instagram or any other social media account even without consulting you may be a bad sign.

The partner grows cold when he is with you

If you notice a sea change in your partner’s affection when you are with friends and when you are alone with him, you need to be careful. This might be an indication that your partner’s affection for you is just a façade meant only for public consumption.

Guide to answering uncomfortable questions this Christmas

We’re finally approaching the end of the year, when cherished moments of freshly-baked holiday goodies, timeless family traditions, and anticipated gift giving circles can sometimes take over. It may all sound like the ideal Hallmark Christmas Movie, until the inevitable suddenly hits you: soon you may be surrounded by the conversations and questions that you have been dreading. The family that you probably love to pieces will now get the chance to ask you those questions that you know you’re not up to answer. “How’s your dating life going?” “So when are you two going to have a baby?” “What exactly does your business do anyway?” — the list can go on and on.

Rather than stomp down your blissful anticipation for the holidays with dread, put some thought into how you’d like to approach these conversations if they arise.

Inform and Share Without Making Assumptions

In many cases, a loved one may ask a hurtful question completely unintentionally. This is a great opportunity to educate and inform your family and friends. The spotlight is on you, so embrace the chance to share who you are. Rather than jump to conclusions and spend the rest of your dinner annoyed, try to fill them in on your current situation, beliefs, or dreams in an informative manner. This could open new doors and offer a closer connection. So they don’t quite understand what you do in your creative field, or how you make any money? Try showing them samples of your work, or sharing some of the great experiences you have had this year. Remember, your loved ones care about you and probably just want to know more about what is going on in your life.

Emphasize the Positive, But Don’t Shy Away from Complexity

It gets very hard to see someone else happy and smiling when you’re not sharing that joy. As you talk about your past year, emphasize all of the positive experiences you have had and what is bringing you joy. Your family wants you happy and thriving. Though they may not understand all that is happening in your life, they will maybe be able to understand what is bringing you joy.

In addition, try to keep conversations light-hearted. Do politics, religion, or other topics seem to always trigger an uproar with your relatives? In 2018, 53 percent of Americans agreed that talking about politics with people they disagree with is generally stressful and frustrating. Try staying away from those discussions. However, if these topics can’t seem to be avoided (maybe you or a relative work in politics, the conversation naturally builds, or you decide they’re topics you want to take on) try taking the route of the Difficult Conversations Lab conducted at Columbia University and embrace the complexity. You may not agree with the person across the table from you (and maybe never will), but ask questions, listen, and avoid generalizations. When you find yourself on a more positive course, try to talk about the newest recipe you found, a fun trip you and your significant other went on, or t

When you find yourself on a more positive course, try to talk about the newest recipe you found, a fun trip you and your significant other went on, or the new movies you are dying to see.

Incorporate the Buddy System

There is nothing worse than feeling like you are being ganged up on at your own family gathering. Try keeping a sidekick nearby to help move conversation, as international speaker and creator of Differ Well, Rachel Baby, suggested in an interview with Forbes. Is there a sibling or a cousin that you can count on? Can your partner or best friend join you for the holidays this year? Maybe drop a hint to your mom beforehand that she is in charge of keeping a certain topic of your life offs limits. Having someone that can help you answer questions that may be a bit tricky and just be a buddy to laugh it all off can be so helpful. Major points if you and this person can exchange looks across the table and know exactly what the other is thinking!

Offer Holiday Entertainment that Isn’t Your Life

If you are worried that conversation could slim down through the duration of the gets together and point towards you, plan some fun things to keep everyone busy. Try bringing out some fun board games, get a game of football going in the backyard, or organize a trip to the movies. There are plenty of ways to keep family members entertained that don’t consist of drilling each other with intense life questions. Focus on creating memories with each other and simply spending time together. This is far more fun than explaining why you haven’t found a new job yet or sharing how your apps based dating life is going.

Kindly Decline and Redirect the Conversation

Don’t forget that you don’t have to discuss anything you truly are not comfortable with. Remember that you can always kindly suggest talking about something else. Keep your holidays joyous and low-stress by discussing topics that make you happy and enlightened. Never feel that you have to delve into a hurtful experience from the past year, or describe the recent low season of life just to provide conversation over turkey and mashed potatoes. There are millions of other fantastic topics of conversation we can all take a leap into. Take a look at radio host Celeste Hadlee’s amazing advice about conversation and remember that great conversation is like a game of catch. If you aren’t feeling up for a certain topic, kindly pass the ball across the table.

So, bid adieu to the dread of the holiday season. Cherish the moments you get to spend with your family and friends. Life is far too short to choose to only see the negative possibilities in life. Embrace the twinkling lights, delicious food, and the comfort of home. New memories are waiting to be made.

Joke of the day 25/12/2019

There were these three guys. They had been walking for 3 days and were very tired. They found a hotel, rented a room and went to sleep. Then, this old guy comes in out of nowhere, and says there is a magic pool just outside their hotel room. He tells them “Ok, you must jump off the diving board, and yell out what you wanna land in.”

So the three guys go over to the pool. The first guy, a vegetarian, yells out “Bananas!” and lands in a pool of bananas. The second guy was money hungry and yelled out “Money!” and lands in a pile of money. The third guy jumps, when a bird shits on his head, and he yells “Oh Shit!”
🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂

Merry Christmas y’all

This is the best color lightening for sleep(check it out)

The idea artificial light from screens is keeping people awake at night is flawed, say scientists who have been studying the best type of lighting to nod off to.

According to the researchers, from Manchester University, this blue light from devices is not the main problem.

They exposed mice to different light settings to study the impact.

The controversial findings, in Current Biology journal, suggest the answer lies in how warm and bright a light is.

Why do the study?

Everyone has a natural, daily wake-sleep cycle.

Their body clock synchronises with the environment so they are alert in the daytime and sleepy at night.

But experts have long suspected exposure to artificial light might be upsetting this alignment.

And there is a popular view artificial blue light – the type that comes from computer screens and mobile phones – has a particularly strong effect.

What did it find?

The team did tests on mice, fixing the brightness to high or low and switching the colour from blue to yellow.

Bright light of either colour was stimulating, rather than restful, as expected.

But when the light was dimmed, blue light was more restful than yellow light.

Lead researcher Dr Tim Brown said the findings matched what happened in the natural world, with bright, warm daylight.

During the daytime, the light that reaches us is relatively white or yellow and has a strong effect on the body clock and around twilight, once the Sun sets, the bluer the light becomes,” he said.

“So if you want to avoid light having a strong effect on your body clock, dim and blue would be the way to go.”

Conversely, bright white or yellow light was better for staying awake and alert.

What does that mean?

Nights mode settings for phones and laptops reduce blue light in an attempt to lessen the damage to sleep.

“At the moment, often what people are doing is adjusting the colour of lighting or visual displays and making the screens more yellow,” Dr Brown said.

“Our prediction is that changing the colour is having exactly the wrong effect.

“Its counteracting any benefit that you might get from also reducing the brightness of the screen.”

Aren’t mice more active at night?

Mice are indeed nocturnal.

But the researchers say the basic way light affects the body clock is the same across all mammals, including humans, meaning the findings should apply to people.

They recommend more research to confirm it.

Dr Manuel Spits chan, from Oxford University, said: “This is fascinating work but we really don’t know yet that the same happens in humans. That’s the difficulty with animal work.

“It should be possible to do tests with people in the future to find out for sure.

A womans husband had been slipping in and out of a coma for several months, yet she had stayed by his bedside every single day. One day, when he came to, he motioned for her to come nearer. As she sat by him, he whispered, eyes full of tears, “You know what? You have been with me all through the bad times. When I got fired, you were there to support me. When my business failed, you were there. When I got shot, you were by my side. When we lost the house, you stayed right here. When my health started failing, you were still by my side. You know what?” “What dear?” she asked gently, smiling as her heart began to fill with warmth. ”I think youre bad luck.”

Women- How to keep your P-Part clean and healthy🍑

People often refer to the entire area “down there” as the vagina, but remember that the vagina is actually the tube-like muscle located inside your body. Here are some tips you should use to take care of your vaginal.

Tips

  • Wash soon after intercourse.
  • Drink plenty of water.
  • If you feel you must use soap, for whatever reason (although not recommended to use soap at all) go with the most gentle, scent free soap you can find. Cleanser for super sensitive skin would be ideal.
  • Always keep the vagina dry and wear clean cotton pants.
  • Getting an STD test both you and your partner(s) is a great way to know for sure if you have anything. Don’t be afraid, your health depends on it.
  • Keep a mature mind when following the above steps. Keeping a healthy vagina is part of a regular hygiene regimen.
  • Warm water is the best thing to wash the vagina with. The chemicals in the soaps may damage it.
  • Always bathe regularly and wash with lots and lots of water. ESPECIALLY when on your period.
  • Wearing pads and panty liners all month long or after your period is over can lead to skin irritation.
  • Eat foods that boost your vaginal health (e.g., yogurt, fruit, garlic).
  • Having hair removed from your genital area may cause irritation. Pubic hair evolved to keep genitals from becoming too moist and it allows the area to breathe. While there aren’t necessarily any serious repercussions, pubic hair removal does not pose a hygienic benefit.
  • Menstrual cups are a chemical-free choice for handling your period, and they can be really helpful if you tend to get irritated by tampons and pads.
  • Drink 100% Cranberry juice.
  • If you know your vagina is unhealthy, don’t have sex or masturbate.
  • Do not wash the vagina with soap or other chemicals. It causes vaginal irritation and infection.
  • Kegel exercises strengthen the pelvic floor muscles and the pubococcygeus muscle. These muscles tend to get looser and weaker with age and after giving birth. Strengthening them can help you avoid issues like urinary incontinence and also increase sexual pleasure.
  • Yogurt has the same kind of “good” bacteria that your vagina needs to stay healthy. So ensure drinking enough yogurt.
  • Eating cooked or raw garlic a few times a week is a great way to keep your vagina healthy. It has also been said to help get rid of bad vaginal odor.
  • Baby wipes will make you feel fresher than regular toilet paper.
  • The vagina is a self-cleaning muscle, so using soap will do nothing but harm the delicate pH balance. Just use warm water.
  • Peeing after sex can help flush the bacteria out of the vaginal area, promoting general health and helping you avoid those pesky UTIs.
  • Try wearing looser, lighter fabrics that breathe well.
  • Wash your vagina with hot water after sex. This will greatly minimize the chance that your encounter will have an unpleasant after effect.

How to create a snowflake with paper

Learn to create a  snowflake with paper in this few easy steps:

Angular Snowflake

Get a sheet of 8.5 x 11, or A4 paper. Create a perfect square by taking the bottom corner and folding it over to the top, at a diagonal. A 3″ (7.5 cm) or so piece will be sticking out. Cut off the excess so you’re working with just the square.
At all steps in this method make sure your creases are firm and straight. If they’re not clean and symmetrical, you may end up with a wonky snowflake.

Fold the paper in half, in a triangle shape.

This is the same fold you made in the first step and is only mentioned in case you unfolded it to cut. Once it’s folded once, fold it again, forming an even smaller triangle.
At this point, you may fold it again to create a different, much smaller, base for your snowflake. Experiment! However, for kids, folding it again renders it much more difficult to work with.

Start making cuts.

This is where the snowflake gets really good. If you get creative with it, you’ll end up with a pattern that’s intricate, delicate, and detailed. Or you could end up with a couple of slits in a piece of paper. Cut in curves, angles, and swirls to get the most out of the paper.
You may find it useful to hold on to the center of the snowflake the very tip. Though you can cut it off and the snowflake will hold together! The more paper you cut off, the flimsier it will be not necessarily a bad thing.

Carefully unfold your snowflake.

If you’ve made a lot of cuts, the snowflake may rip, so be careful. And if your cuts were very small, sometimes the layers of paper stick together (think election day 2000).
If you’re not happy with your pattern, fold it back up and take a few more whacks at the paper. Problem solved.

10 Signs You Really Love A Guy

So, there’s a man in your life. But you’re not sure whether you really do like him, or whether you’re just kidding yourself.
You may well have felt betrayed by your feelings in the past.

There may have been times when you were truly convinced you liked someone. You were sure that, this time around, it was real.
And then, suddenly, you found that your feelings had changed, or you realized that you were never that into him in the first place and you looked around and found yourself in a situation that it was tricky to get out of.
You really don’t want that to happen again.
Are you worried that you’re just lonely, or that it’s just the attention you like, not the man?
Or, are you concerned with the idea of having a man in your life that you like? Are you unsure that you like him for who he really is?

Do you blow hot and cold? Do you feel like you’re head over heels one day, and then indifferent the next?
Are you confused about your feelings, and searching for some clarity in your romantic life?
Hopefully, the signs below will help you start to figure out whether, deep down, what you’re feeling for this guy is real or not.

That way, you can decide whether to continue to put your energies into cultivating this new relationship, or to end things with him now, before you both get hurt.

1. It feels natural to be around him.

When you first spend time with him, when the sexual tension is running high, you’ll probably feel more than a bit flustered in his presence.
But it should also feel natural to be with him.
Conversation should flow, and you shouldn’t need to search around for topics to discuss or try to fill awkward silences.
You should feel able to be yourself around him and enjoy a connection that goes beyond the purely physical.
Nothing about the time you spend with him should feel forced.

2. You’ve had conversations that go beyond the superficial.

If you don’t know his surname and haven’t discussed your pasts, your jobs, your dreams, or your families, it’ll be pretty hard to know who he really is.
But if you’ve found that the two of you have naturally started to open up to each other about deeper things and you like what you’ve discovered about him so far, that’s an excellent sign that your feelings could be genuine.

3. You think about him all the time.

If you’re only with someone because you don’t like the idea of being alone or because you’re bored, then when you’ve got other company, are occupied doing fun things, or are getting attention from other men, he’ll probably be the last thing you’re thinking about.
On the other hand, if you find that even he occupies your mind when you’re out and about and socializing, that’s an excellent sign that you really do like this guy.
If you really like him, you’ll be thinking about him. All. The. Time.
You’ll get distracted at work and find that your friends have started telling you off for daydreaming when they’re trying to talk to you or tell you a story.
You’ll be constantly waiting for him to text you back, wanting him to be the one to comfort you when you’re upset, and you’ll be thinking about him first thing in the morning and last thing at night.
He’ll never be far from your thoughts, no matter how often you actually see him.

4. You always mention his name.

When you’re chatting to your mates, you bring him up.
You tell stories about that funny thing he said or did.
You just can’t help mentioning him, and they’ve started noticing.

5. This hasn’t happened overnight.

You didn’t meet this guy last week.
If you’ve been on quite a few dates and known him for a while now and things are gradually building, that’s an excellent sign that this could develop into a healthy relationship.
If he’s only just come into your life, you need to give things a chance to blossom and grow, and give your feelings a chance to mature.

6. You’ve been getting jealous.

Much as you hate to admit it, you’ve been getting twinges of jealousy.
If you didn’t like him, you wouldn’t notice him mentioning or speaking to other women, let alone get jealous about it.

But if you find yourself on high alert whenever he’s around other women and have your ears pricked for mentions of his exes or female friends, that’s a very good sign you like him.

We should never allow jealousy to rule us or get out of hand, but a pang of jealousy here and there is only natural.

7. You struggle to picture your life without him.

You don’t know how it happened, but you struggle to picture what life would look like if he wasn’t in it.

You can’t quite remember what it was like when he wasn’t around.

He’s become a big part of your life, and you’d like it to stay that way.

8. You’ve started to picture a future together.

You can imagine a shared future with this guy From what you know of him so far, you think the two of you have complimentary life goals, that you’d make a good team, and that you could bring out the best in each other.

You’ve found yourself dreaming about where you might live, or the adventures you might go on together.

Or, in the less distant future, you’re thinking about fun things you could do together at Christmas, or a few months from now.

You’re excited about making plans with him.

9. Your friends can see how smitten you are.

Your friends can tell how much you like this guy, even if you’re still unsure.

They’ve seen the way you’ve been behaving and the way you talk about him, and they know that you’re totally head over heels.

10. You’re interested in more than just his body.

The sex, if you’ve gotten that far, is great. But you’re not ringing him up or messaging him just for more of the same.

You like his mind, as well as his body.

You could spend hours talking to him. You like hearing about his take on the world and you’re genuinely interested in his opinions on things.

You want to spend time with him, even if that time doesn’t include getting physical.

Google scrapped Chrome 79 update over major bug

Google has scrapped its latest Chrome update following an outpouring of complaints over lost data.

Search engine giant Google has been forced to halt its rollout of its latest Chrome update for Android after a serious flaw was found to be deleting user data and resetting mobile apps.
After the update went live on December 10th,

Google was inundated with complaints from users who had lost essential login data in third-party apps after installing Chrome 79.
One developer said: “This is a catastrophe. Our users’ data are being deleted as they receive the update.” Others said their apps had been flooded with negative reviews on Google’s Play Store after the bug made the unusable.

Another developer of a mobile cash management app said: “When I say ‘broken’, I mean that their encrypted login information has been wiped and they can’t remember their credentials (and resetting them are practically impossible in the case of our app).”
Google developers said they had made a mistake with the update by forgetting to move the contents of local storage or web SQL into the new Chrome 79 directory, making the data inaccessible for all users.

These storage systems allow a website or web app to store data on a user’s device, inside a user’s Chrome profile directory.

local storage and web SQL are frequently used by mobile app developers. These apps are dependant on mechanisms like local storage or web SQL to save settings and user data locally.

By the time the Google halted the update already 50% had been rolled out to Android users worldwide.

Google confirmed that any app that Chrome via Android’s built-in web view system could be affected. The company said it could take up to a week to fix the issue.

According to The Register, the update does not delete the data but makes it invisible, which it can be retrieved by a developer or debug tool.

It now appears Google plans to revert the storage location back to where it was, which means the new data the users have created will become invisible, but the old data will return.

Research shows that onions are great for creating healthy blood flow circulation throughout the body to the heart.
Furthermore, onion consumption helps prevent blood clotting. But what people seldom realize is that onions help not only blood flow to the heart, but also with blood flow to the penis.

2. Spinach

Just ask your partner if it’s ok, remember don’t risk your health or organ just for satisfaction.

How do make money through betting in 2020

10 Ways To Improve Your Betting

1. Understand the concept of value

Critical. If you don’t have this, walk away. Sure you might be certain that a 1.25 favourite is going to win, but are the odds being offered giving any value?

Plenty of times we’ve heard casual gamblers say “There’s no way this team is going to lose this game.” Well they might be legitimate favourites, but is the probability of them winning better than the odds being offered? Betting with this frame of mind is a little like saying an over-priced wide-screen TV was good value just because you really really really wanted it. It doesn’t work.

Value is a simple concept, but most of the betting public don’t understand this. And perhaps thankfully so, because its this naive or ‘square’ money that can skew the market, leaving great opportunities for the minority of gamblers who do know how to recognise value.

Being able to spot value means that you are able to spot odds that are too high, consistently and systematically and capitalize on those opportunities.

In principle this is not unlike successful trading with stocks: It makes sense to buy a particular stock when it is undervalued, as this means it likely will appreciate in value later. If you are focused on sports betting, than your job each match day is to find the undervalued teams, and “buy their stock” in a manner of speaking.

Spotting value is in essence about judging probabilities more correctly than the market does. Of course it is difficult to do that for every game and every sport, but that isn’t necessary. Your big advantage over the bookmaker lies in the ability to skip matches with unfavourable odds – just like you don’t have to purchase all stocks available. The bookmaker pretty much has to offer odds for almost all games, at the very least in the most popular leagues.

Spotting value is the hardest thing to do in this business, and you will need a lot of practice to pull it off consistently. Only once you have developed your ability to consistently identify value, you will have a systematic edge.

2. Understand basic maths

If you’ve ever said the phrase “I’m not a maths guy but….”, then you probably shouldn’t be a betting guy either. While plenty of gamblers can make a success of it by betting on instinct and ‘feel’, to be successful long term you need a viable staking plan and you need to understand what the odds reflect in terms of probability.

In short, it’s a numbers game, and you need an adequate relationship with division and multiplication as a minimum.

3. Understand how the bookmakers make the odds

This depends upon the popularity of the event, but in general, bookmaker odds will be more a reflection of what they expect the general public to play, rather than on the actual probabilities of either outcome. Of course, it’s not quite that simple, but in general, bookmakers will set their odds so as to attract betting on either side of the odds, so as to balance their liability and take their commission.

This leaves smart gamblers to find great value opportunities where the general public’s opinion is just plain wrong. It also means that great value can be found on events where there is expected to be greater interest than normal by the occasional or casual gambler, who let’s be honest, knows nothing or very little in terms of profitable betting strategy. Events like the Super Bowl, Cup finals and major horse racing events are prime candidates for this sort of opportunity.

If you want to bet successfully, you need the right bookmaker. You will need to find bookmakers that actually let you win. Sadly it’s an ugly truth that most bookmakers won’t and will limit their successful customers, or may even outright ban them.

Of course that way you can’t possibly plan for success, as your winning would always stay fictional. Happily there are certain bookmakers that do not limit or ban their successful customers. One of the most well known bookmakers of this kind is Pinnacle Sports (residing in Curacao), as well as the Asian bookies SBObetand IBCbet. The latter two also happen to be the worldwide market leaders when it comes to soccer betting. On the other hand, if you consider yourself a casual betting type, going with well established bookies is the perfect choice.

The business model of all these bookmakers is based on low margins and high volumes. This means they simply want to have as much action as possible, encouraged by a small bookmaker margin which translates into better odds for the customer. These bookies accept winners not because they want to make the world a better place (that’s just a side effect), but rather because they can use that information to their advantage, for instance by adjusting their betting lines.

You should also make use of betting exchanges. Betting exchanges will not ban you for winning either, as you are betting against other customers on the exchange, rather than a bookmaker directly.

4. Possess the ability to fall in love with the ugly duck

The longer we have been betting, the more we have come to fall in love with the team that nobody likes. In fact, we feel better about a potential bet the uglier it looks on paper. Sounds counter intuitive we know, but the less the general public likes a team, the more we like the look of them in terms of value. Especially a team that might have performed well over a long period but may have had a bad run of maybe 4 or 5 games. Just watch the general public jump off them, and watch their value rise.

5. Don’t dwell on the past or celebrate for too long

Don’t let a recent losing run throw you off your game. Put it out of your mind and stay with your analysis and have faith that the wheel will turn. Similarly, don’t let a recent winning streak give you false courage and lead you to over extend yourself. Again, stay with your analysis and stick with your plan.

6. Don’t hope for The Big Score

Multi-bets. Parlays. Teasers. Whatever you like to call them, know when to bet them. And when not to. Sure they offer the promise of the big score, the big pay day, but unless you have done your analysis and have located true value, they are a terrible way to bet.

Look at it this way. If you place a multi-bet of 4 legs, and you were getting full price even money odds of 2.00 for each leg, the odds for that multi would be 16.00. Now lets look at a real world example where you’re being offered lets say 1.90 for ‘even money’ with the bookmaker taking out 5%: the odds for that same 4 leg multi would be just 13.00. That’s taking out close to 19% of the full price of that bet.

But if you have located true value, then multi’s can be tremendous value as you multiply the value into each leg. The issue is of course, locating true value. Everyone who adds a leg to a multi does so because they believe they are finding value. Nobody bets odds that don’t represent value to them. But key to creating value multi’s is in finding true value or else you’re only diminishing your chances of success with each under valued leg you add.

7. Have a long term sensibility

If you take your betting seriously, you need to think long term. Build your betting bankroll, steadily increase the amount you bet on each game, and soon enough you’ll find you’re making some decent pocket money on the side, and maybe, just maybe, if you stick with it long enough, you can make a living wage out of it.

Never forget: Betting, like any other form of serious investment, is a marathon, not a sprint. Accordingly it will take a while for your bankroll to grow. If you’re patient and successful however, the compound interest effect will be on your side. What will look like painfully slow growth initially will end up picking up a remarkable exponential dynamic.

You will have to deal with more swings, losing streaks, winning streaks, making the curve less smooth and requiring a greater number of bets. Nevertheless the general dynamic holds true – how far you can get with 5% value is quite amazing, and doesn’t even take all that long.

8. Start with a sensible betting bankroll

If you want to make money, you need to start with a betting bankroll capable of absorbing losses. If you’re going to bet in units, with an average bet of 1 unit, we would recommend a bankroll of at least 50 units. Minimum.

OK so maybe you can only afford a bankroll of 1000 euro, which means your average unit will be 20. Sounds small time we know and you want to be a high roller. Well a euro1000 bankroll can quickly turn into a substantial amount with consistent value recognition and an intelligent staking plan.

Lets say you bet 200 bets a year. And for argument sake lets say they are all of 1.90 odds, and lets say you hit at a 54% strike rate. Well with a fractional Kelly staking plan, at the end of those 200 bets, depending on your winning consistency which should even out over a long term, your bankroll will be in the ballpark of euro1100.00. Yeah I hear what you’re saying – that’s only 100.00 profit over the year. Well, that’s just betting 200 bets a year, with a 2.6% average return per bet.

Now imagine you bet 400 bets in a year and able to get still a modest 5% average return. That bankroll of euro1000 at the end of the 400 bets would be in the ballpark of euro1400 and at the end of 5 years that bankroll will be in the range of euro5000, and after 10 years, around euro30,000 with an average unit of 600.

Not bad is it. Of course the hard part is to get that consistent 5% return, and perhaps the harder part is grinding it out until you build that bank up over a number of years. But the point here is to show how starting out modest with a viable bankroll and staking plan, can turn into genuine profits in the long term

It isn’t just all about value though – the ability to correctly manage your money is almost as important. Money management is about two fundamental goals, that partially contradict themselves:

growing your bankroll as quickly as possible
while avoiding bankruptcy in the process
Provided you find value regularly, your bankroll will of course grow faster if you stake more per bet. But if you stake too much per bet, you risk bankruptcy. Sadly this aspect is often severely underestimated by most people. The random swings can be brutal even if you mostly place value bets. Luckily this can be handled easily by a very simple rule: Personally I would recommend you never stake more than 1-2% of your bankroll on any given bet.

If you are able to come up with a reasonably accurate estimation of your actual value, you can use the Kelly-formula to make the most of your edge – and stake ever more efficiently.

9. Let go of the need to ‘make it interesting’

If you want to make it big in betting, value alone will not cut it. You need to find that value in sports and leagues that you can bet at reasonably high betting limits (these are limits that apply to every punter, rather than just a select few winning ones).

But soccer is not the only avenue. For example for American Sports, Pinnacle Sports and Matchbook allow for high stakes as well, British Horse Racing is another good possibility on Betfair and Betdaq. However, it should be noted that early market odds will often have low limits and restricted betting until the market develops in the days leading up to the event.

For example, a bookmaker such as SBObet may offer stakes up to 5,000 for a Premier League game a day before kickoff, but will likely only offer a tenth of that on markets posted a week prior. It’s also worth noting that many traditional bookmakers such as Ladbrokes do not quote their bet limits as unlike Pinnacle Sports and SBObet, they will not apply to the majority of their customers.

On the other hand it will be pretty tough in more exotic sports and leagues, even if you find great value there. Bad odds and low limits are usually insurmountable obstacles in that regard.

While a number of bookmakers cater to professional punters seeking high stakes, Pinnacle Sports is by far and away the leader when it comes to limits on major sporting events. Here are Pinnacle Sports current bet limits for popular sports leagues and markets:

How to get money through Affliaite marketing 2020

Let’s begin with the broad definition of affiliate marketing.

Affiliate marketing is one of the oldest marketing practice which gains affiliates a commission in the case of sale based on the affiliate’s recommendation. It is one of the cheapest and easiest ways of marketing as you don’t need to create and sell a product. Just one thing you need to do is to enable a linked connection between buyer and seller and take your commission when the sale is made.

Many online companies that sell shoes or domain services offer an affiliate program. By signing up for the program, get your unique tracking link and use this link whenever you write about their product. There are different affiliate programs that use different payment terms.

  • Pay Per Click (PPC): You make money online based on the number of visitors redirected by your affiliate site to the advertiser’s website.
  • Pay Per Sale (PPS): You make money online when the purchase is completed. The advertiser pays you a percentage of the sale.
  • Pay Per Lead (PPL): You make money online when the visitor provides his/her contact info on the advertiser website.

How To Make Money In Affiliate Marketing

As you see, affiliate marketing is a passive income source. It is highly competitive it is true but still it may be so easy to make money online with affiliate marketing. To be successful, you need to learn what works and what doesn’t while promoting your products. If you ask yourself “How can I do affiliate marketing”, here are the tips:

Be Patient

There are many affiliate marketing works. So, you need to be patient. You can feed your website with qualified content to get high ranking positions and raise awareness, attend affiliate marketing events, seminars or webinars and join a discussion forum or online communities to meet new people. All make a great contribution to develop you. Naturally after these contributions you will be more passionate to make money from affiliate programs. If you are patient enough you will make money with affiliate programs.

Choose More Attractive Products

It would be a definite mistake to promote everything by registering with different affiliate programs. You can’t focus on each of them deeply and the result would be a disappointment. Instead of promoting everything, just promote a few products which are unique, profitable or can reach large masses. So, you need to understand market needs and desires and place your products accordingly to make money as an affiliate.

Use Several Traffic Sources

The chance of making money online raises together with the more traffic you send to the sales page. It is not wrong to run ads on just own site, but it has some missing points. The best example belongs to Google Adwords. By making an ad in your Adwords account, your sales page gets targeted traffic from various channels.

Attract Targeted Traffic

The core function of making money is to push people to click your affiliates’ links. So, you need to attract visitors. There are four ways; paid advertising, free advertising, article marketing and email marketing.

You need to combine ad copy, graphics, and a link effectively on paid services like Google AdSense in paid advertising while placing links and advertisements on free websites like Craigslist or US Free Ads in the free advertisement method. Payment methods of both of them are PPC, that is earning money regardless of whether a reader buys the product or not.

For article marketing, you need to have a higher ranking in search engine results to be a credible source. There are many article submission websites like Ezine Articles. As a marketer, you submit your article and affiliate marketers republish your article. The marketer who published the original article gradually earns higher search engine rankings. For email marketing, affiliate marketers embed an email subscription option for website visitors.

Test, Measure, and Track

Testing any action and measuring the performance help you exploring what works and what doesn’t. According to tracking results, change or keep your actions. For example, your banner ads aren’t gain you much. So, try to be placed them in different areas and compare and contrast all results. Sure, some places earn you more.

Research Product Demand

If you remember, I said “understand market needs” at the beginning. Let’s deep into this step. If you have decent traffic, view your daily, weekly, quarterly and yearly traffic and sales chart in order to explore customers’ behaviors and choices. If not, spend a time to find out how the product you are thinking to promote meets users’ needs.

Follow New Methods and Techniques

Everybody is typing to Google: How to make money affiliate marketing. Everyone wants to make money with affiliate programs. Digital marketing trends are very dynamic. So affiliate marketing is. Try to be updated with the latest techniques and methods to be successful in a competitive environment. Getting out of date results in falling behind while staying up to date results in utilizing new techniques.

Select The Right Advertiser

The quality and service of your website are as important as the advertiser’s website. If your visitors become unhappy and dissatisfied after purchasing the product you advice, they think nothing of taking your advice, again. I mean it hurts your credibility. So, focus on choosing the ones that offer good customer service while promoting the person or company.

Use Tools

You need to make your campaign efficient. There are many helpful tools that let you conduct market research, competitor research, track and convert your ad campaigns.

In order to get inspired by topics, you can use BuzzSumo and Feedly. For social media planning and tracking, Buffer would the best choice while Bitly and ClickMeter are good for link creation and tracking. In order to beautify your website with images and GIFs, you can try Unsplash and GIFMaker. For monetization, you can use Google Adsense, VigLink, and Flippa.

One of them I suggest is GO Trace by App Samurai, a smart affiliate link testing and monitoring tool, which you can use for free to test. You can test your affiliate links whether there is any broken one or not. It is useful for both advertisers and affiliates.

Affiliate Marketing Types

Wwbsit Affiliate Marketing

Most common affiliate marketing type is doing it by a website. However, with the increased amount of smartphone usage, we think it may be useful to talk about another type of affiliate marketing:

Mobile Affiliate Marketing

Mobile affiliate marketing is simple you will do mobile affiliate marketing by promoting affiliate links provided by the product owner (advertiser), which you share in your mobile app. All you have to keep in mind for mobile affiliate marketing is that your mobile advertising inventory must be a user-friendly mobile interface, it should have new functions and tools for comfortable navigation from any mobile device, be familiar with constant updates and upgrades and so on. If you apply these to your mobile product, you can easily do mobile affiliate marketing.
