Consolidate Debts
Refinancing also allows you to consolidate your debts if you wish. Debt consolidation has gotten a bad reputation over the years, but the advantages they bring – when used at the right time by the right person – shouldn’t be denied.

Vietnam – The New Kitesurfing Destination (part 2 of 2)

Payment for the courses is often inclusive of equipment rentals. This means that you need not have your own equipment to learn the sport. This is good news to beginners who are still testing the waters, so to speak. The prices of new equipment can be quite expensive, so it is best not to purchase equipment yet. And even if you insist on buying, the price is not that costly. They sometimes sell used equipment, at a fraction of the cost for new ones.

Another reason why Vietnam is popular is because of the prices. The prices are relatively low compared to kitesurfing lessons in some exotic island in the Pacific or in South Africa. They have great kite-surf packages, perfect for the tourist who likes to learn kitesurfing on the side.

Lastly, the place is not that crowded yet. Many are yet to discover how beautiful the beaches of Vietnam are. But this shall not be for so long. Kitesurfing activities in the island are slowly picking up, and the number of tourists is increasing every year. In fact, some resorts are undergoing expansion plans.

These are some reasons, and more. With the friendly people in the area, you are sure to enjoy your stay. Kitesurfing in Vietnam is a great way to relax and unwind. You need not be an expert kitesurfer to enjoy the sport.

Even as spectators you can appreciate the freestyle moves and techniques that other more seasoned kitesurfers do. So what are you waiting for? Take this much-needed vacation now. Mui Ne beach is waiting for you.

Vietnam – The New Kitesurfing Destination (part 1 of 2)

Imagine warm sunny beaches, steady winds and scenic view, coupled with low fare and accommodation rates, and look what you got – kitesurfing in Vietnam. It is hard to reconcile how a quiet, exotic place like it could become the home for the more adventurous, thrill-seeking kitesurfers.

Kitesurfing, as they say, is not for the weak-hearted. That is why it is considered as an extreme sport for most people. Kitesurfers would swear by the adrenalin-pumping rush that they feel as they freestyle their way across the beach. Such excitement is felt by spectators as well.

But why they should choose Vietnam, you may ask. For one, the place is perfect for the sport. Mui Ne is the place where most kitesurfing activity takes place. It is an 18-kilometer strip of white sand, palm trees and nice resorts. Winds average between 18-30 knots, which is great for kitesurfing. There is also internet access, so you can keep in touch with people back home.

If you don't feel like kitesurfing anymore, there are other water activities that you can do. You can do windsurfing and kayaking as well. Some resorts offer other activities such as sight seeing, mountain safari and golf.

Secondly, there are many kitesurfing schools in the area. But because there are many of them, unlicensed schools also abound. Make sure to check if the school is licensed, and if their instructors are certified by the International Kiteboarding Organization.

You can choose between a beginner course and intermediate course. For the beginners, they are taught of the different conditions such as the wind, water and beach. They are also taught of kite set up and handling; kite control, launching and landing; and, more importantly, safety and self-rescue information.

Top 10 Last Minute Travel Destinations (part 2 of 2)


Like NYC, Nevada or Las Vegas in particular is a city that comes especially alive at night. If you think gambling is the only thing to do in Vegas, think again. You can drop by at Caesar’s Palace, for instance, at certain times in the evening and you’ll be treated by a special presentation…for free.


First stop: Hollywood. Walk around Beverly Hills, buy a map to know where the stars live, walk a couple of minutes more and you can spot a famous actor or two while shopping in any of the equally famous boutiques lining the streets. A food tour won’t be amiss because Cali is a melting pot of various cultures! You’ll see a Thai restaurant right next to a fine-dining French restaurant and a fastfood joint.


History buffs wanting to do some last minute travel should immediately head to London. There, you can visit Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, the Tower of London, and let’s not forget London Bridge, the ultimate star of nursery rhymes. If you have extra time, check out Thames Park – this used to be the most fashionable place for nobility to see and be seen.


Hawaii has nice tropical weather all year round. They may have stormy bouts once in a while, but the weather channel will easily let you know if visiting the islands now would be bad timing. In Hawaii, you can enjoy luaus after frolicking in the beach.


Pyramids! There’s no need to think when you get to Egypt. You can also try riding a camel and visit the various museums found in Cairo.


Take advantage of the currently welcoming regime in China and see the secret wonders of this once-forbidden country. The language barrier could take a bit getting used to but the extremely cheap cost-of-living makes struggling with Mandarin worth every second.

Top 10 Last Minute Travel Destinations (part 1 of 2)

You know as well that it’s imperative to give the street-lining cafes a try for authentic French cuisine, to walk around and just enjoy the romantic atmosphere and appreciate the works of Bohemian artists.

New York

Another city you won’t lack for excitement is the Big Apple. But beware, native New Yorkers don’t like it when people refer to NYC as the Big Apple. Because it’s a city that never sleeps, you’ll always find something to see or do no matter what time you get there. Just be careful of pickpockets. That’s one authentic NYC experience you can certainly do without!

Differentiating A Living Will And A Living Trust (part 2 of 2)
Most people opt to appoint themselves as the trustee in command of supervising all the assets of the trust. In this fashion, you can still be in control of your properties even though they've already been put into a trust. On the other hand, you may also assign a successor trustee – either an institution or a person – to administer the trust's assets in case you become unwilling or incapable of performing your duties.

So basically a living trust guarantees that your assets will be handled according to your preferences – that is if you become incapable of managing them yourself. In setting one up, you may initially want to serve as its trustee. However, it would be best if you also select a successor trustee while you're still of sound mind to make the decision.

The trustee may take over the management of all your assets under the mentioned circumstances. And in case you pass away, the successor trustee you have appointed will act similarly to an executor of a will.

The usual functions will include gathering your assets; paying any remaining debts, taxes and claims; and distributing your properties according to your orders. Then again, unlike a will, all of these tasks may be carried out without court approval or supervision.

In comparison to a living will, a living trust is not normally considered a top priority and not everyone would benefit a great deal from it. For instance, a young couple without kids and noteworthy assets do not require the creation of a living trust. People with uncomplicated estate plans may not gain much from it too.

On the other hand, wealthy individuals who prefer court supervision for the management of their estate should steer clear from living trusts.

So you see, a living will and a living trust definitely differ in a lot of ways. The first is usually appropriate for almost anyone, while the latter is typically viewed in a case-to-case basis.

Differentiating A Living Will And A Living Trust (part 1 of 2)

The two terms living will and living trust may seem a bit vague. Oftentimes, people may even use them interchangeably. However, you have to understand that a living will is certainly different from a living trust. Although both may share a number of similar characteristics, you have to know their exact definitions for you to be able to fully utilize them to your advantage.

Living Will

It is a legal document that states your wishes regarding health care decisions in the event of an unfortunate occurrence such as a terminal illness or a permanent vegetative state. This form of advanced directive will only take effect once you have shown evidence of incapacity to participate in the decision-making process with regard to your medical treatment.

Basically, the policies that govern the making and application of living wills are based on state laws concerning the matter. The statutes may hold differing views from one state to another. So be sure to follow state-specific procedures to avoid conflicts since this is, after all, a lawful document.

Other states may not have particular laws pertaining to living wills. Then again, you may take advantage of the option to appoint a health care surrogate in case you become too ill to participate in making health care decisions for yourself. As the name implies, your surrogate will act and decide on your behalf under the mentioned circumstances.

Living Trust

In essence, a living trust is a written lawful document that partly takes the place of a will. It allows you to place all your assets (i.e. residential properties, bank accounts, or stock shares) in a trust to be administered to your advantage for as long as you live. In the unfortunate event of your death, all your properties will be transferred under the names of your beneficiaries.

You Can Submit Your Pictures to a Magazine Publishing (part 2 of 2)

If you want to get the CD back after submitting it to the magazine publication, make sure to enclose the return postage otherwise, this will already become their property.

Should there be a date and time on each photograph, turn it off because those who will be viewing it do not have the time to do that.

For any other concerns you may have regarding the guidelines in submitting photographs, shoot them an email or give them a call.

Aside from following the guidelines, there are a few things you should never do when submitting images. You must never email huge unsolicited images. If the magazine publication is asking for images concerning a certain topic, only send those that are relevant.

If you think it will be smarter to send the memory card from your camera, don’t because you have to submit this to them in the format that they require. In most cases, in a CD-Rom. To ensure the quality of the images sent, don’t use a cheap CD.

There is a limit to how many images can be stored in a CD-Rom. In order to maximize it, only send the best ones to the magazine publication. When these are being sent, do not use 3rd party software as this may not be compatible with what they are using.

Submitting your own pictures to a magazine Publishing could be your stepping stone in landing a full time job working for them. So if you have something to share, try it out and see what happens next.

You Can Submit Your Pictures to a Magazine Publishing (part 1 of 2)

Most magazine Publishing companies have their own photographers. But since these individuals cannot always be there to take that perfect shot, it gets the services of freelance photographers. Can you submit your own pictures? The answer is yes as long as you follow certain guidelines.

First, you cannot submit photographs that have already been printed. This is because before it is sent to the printers, their digital team will clean up the picture. The best thing to do will be to send your images in a CD-Rom.

Pictures that are submitted must be in the correct pixel size and resolution. This will enable the magazine publication to see your images regardless of the operating system they use. You have to remember that although a lot of people use Microsoft Windows, some companies have shifted to Linux while others use Apple’s Mac.

If the pictures you took are for example 72dpi and what they want should be in 300dpi, invest in software that can do the job.

Images can be saved in different formats. The three most common are jpg, gif and png. The one that is compatible regardless of the operating system used is the JPG format.

Whenever you submit images, make sure to include your name, address and synopsis of the contents of the CD.  A simple way of doing this is with Photoshop. You simply go to file, automate and then lastly go to contact sheet. Once there, find the folders where your images are, pick the paper size and the number of images on each sheet of paper.

Do You have Kidney Stones (part 2 of 2)
The Intravenous Pyelogram or IVP is another option and this can only work after you have been injected with a contrasting agent. Once this is flowing through your kidney, it will be easy for the machine to see if you have a kidney stone blocking the ureter.

There are risks for conducting this test especially if you have a slight allergic reaction to the fluid that was used.

The ultrasound has other uses and letting you know the size of your baby is just one of them. The doctor may also use this device to check if you have kidney stones located in your upper urinary tract or in your ureter. Unfortunately, it cannot be used to check for kidney stones in other parts of the body.

Another test is called the retrograde pyelogram is a cytoscopy. This test is similar to the IVP because it also uses a contrasting agent. The only difference is that once you are injected, a slam telescopic instrument is sent it to check the bladder.

In most cases, patients who may have kidney stones do not need to undergo these tests because the others mentioned have already confirmed that.

When doctors are sure that you have kidney stones and determined the type this is in your body, only then will they be able to treat it. The doctor may or may not have to give you medication. In extreme cases, surgery may be the only option.

Kidney stones happen more often to men than women. If you feel something wrong down there, don’t wait until things get worse to see your doctor.

Do You have Kidney Stones (part 1 of 2)

Is there blood when you urinate or do you feel pain coming from your back or pelvis? If your answer to these two questions is yes, then you may have kidney stones in your body and the only way to be sure is to have yourself examined by a doctor.

The two symptoms mentioned are just some of the symptoms that tell you if you have kidney stones. Other symptoms include fevers or chills, feeling or being sick, frequency urinating and feeling a burning sensation when you urinate.

It is hard to tell just by how you feel if you do have kidney stones because these symptoms are also felt by those who have UTI or urinary tract infection.

When you go to your doctor, he or she will have to do a system of checks. This will include reviewing your medical history, conducting a physical examination and doing some tests.

The best way to rule out UTI is to extract a sample of urine or blood and scanned using one or two machines that may be a computed tomography (CT) scan, intravenous pyelogram (IVP), retrograde pyelogram or X-ray.

To give you a better understanding of what these machines are;

The CT scan is used not only to tell if you have a kidney stone because it can be used for other purposes. In the case of kidney stones, the doctor will tell the technician to focus on your urinary system.

The only problem with the CT scan is that it cannot detect small stones when these are located near the bladder. TO be sure, an x-ray will be done to tell the doctor its orientation, shape and size.

Why Patterns and Measurements are Important in Dressmaking? (part 2 of 2)
The right way to measure

When it comes to patterns in dressmaking, it is best to always consider the standard measurements used by the dressmaking industry to be able to get accurate results. It is always advisable to make use of the measurement charts that can be found in various pattern books because these are based on the standard measurements used by almost all tailors.

The major considerations when it comes to dressmaking patterns are the accurate measurements of the person's bust/chest, waist, hips, and back length for blouses and tops and the measurements of the crotch area, butt area, and leg length for skirts and pants.

Remember, when taking measurements from these key body parts, always make sure that they are taken with undergarments on using a tape measure that is held just enough to get the correct size and adjustments. It is always best if two people will work on taking these measurements so lesser errors will be committed. If you are the one who is taking the measurements, ask the person to stand up in his or her usual posture to get accurate clothing measurements.

If you are taking bust or chest measurements, make sure that you place the tape measure around the person's body—just across the chest or breasts—and slide it under his or her arms across the back. For the waist, always get the person's natural waistline by placing a string around the waist before using the tape measure. While the measurement of the hips is usually taken below the waist, the back length's measurement is taken from the bone that is most prominent in the back of the person's neck.

Once you get all the measurements correctly, you can proceed to using the right pattern for the person who will wear the clothes and you may proceed to the dressmaking process. To make sure that you won’t have any problems in losing the measurements that are very important for patterns, make sure that you always keep a spare copy.

You can do this by photo copying the listed measurements or by simply copying the measurements in the logbook.

Why Patterns and Measurements are Important in Dressmaking? (part 1 of 2)

In dressmaking, a pattern is very important because it gives you the initial outline of the dress or any item you are trying to create. Aside from providing you the outline, patterns also give you an idea how much fabric you should use and the ideal kind of the fabric for the project.

Dressmakers who have been in this industry for so long would agree that in order to get the right patterns for dressmaking, the tailor must first decide what kind of item he or she wishes to make and then the list of measurements needed. Compared to tablemats or curtains, patterns are more valuable when it comes to clothing or dressmaking because the "wearability" of the clothes will basically depend on the patterns chosen.

Where to find patterns for dressmaking

A specific pattern that will be used for dressmaking will greatly depend on who is going to wear it. Nowadays, since more and more people are into sewing and dressmaking, there are so many sources of patterns available. They come in various types and designs which aids comfort when sewing for clothes.

These patterns are available from almost all craft stores or specialty stores meant for dressmaking. You can get it from craft stores or specialty dressmaking stores where you bought the materials like fabric, thread, and the like for your project. Aside from buying these patterns at stores, you can also get it from various magazines that feature basic sewing or in online sewing sites.

When To Shove People Out To Make Way For CNC (part 2 of 2)


CNC machines do specific instructions. They will never assume anything, nor rebel against the program loaded to them. Imagine the security of knowing that you will "reap" exactly what you "sowed". Let's say, something goes wrong during the process. Assuming the machine is in perfect condition, you CANNOT put the blame on it because it just performed what you told it to do so.

Secondly, there is the blanket of consistency. It provides a certain level of safety and ease to the head supervisor. If you have overseen the operations today, most likely, it will be exactly the same tomorrow. The feeling of knowing what to expect is always a good thing, especially when there's money involved.

Lastly, there's speed. CNC machines do not stop to think. After you do the thinking, they do the power-jobs that they need to do. It’s that simple. There is a minimized set-up time and back-job time pocket.

What you will find a flaw about CNC though, is that logic-wise, CNC machines cannot think of better ways to perform a task (IF there is a better way). A CNC machine is purely mechanical; when it was sold to you; the salesmen never mentioned the word “creative” or "innovative". I hope you did not miss that.


CNC machines are also assets of the company. When assets like this are purchased, there is little or no emotional investment that goes with it. You won't even train it! It is expected to do certain tasks and that’s saving you a lot of time from all the explaining, demonstration and reminding.

Also, when a CNC machine is performing its task, it is void of any emotion. So no matter how hot the weather is, or how noisy the workplace is, the CNC machine will do its job just like any other day. It is different as compared to people - who have the tendency to space-out when doing very mechanical and tedious jobs.

Although the CNC may want to, it also cannot complain. That's really convenient. What you will need to note now is your electric bill. Beware, for when getting CNC machines, it may betray you in the form of lofty bills. All the emotions you’ve saved might just be unleashed.

When To Shove People Out To Make Way For CNC (part 1 of 2)

The normal businessman’s mind is always geared towards profit, profit, profit. No matter how much the company spends, at the end of the day, the revenues should exceed the expenses (including tax). Although innovation is a major requirement to a business' growth, many small-time businesses just lie back in comfort. They think that as long as they're earning and they have a steady market, it’s all right.

This holds true for businessmen who are contented with being small-time (though it's hard to find one). However, for businesses that are aggressive towards getting ahead, acquiring a CNC machine seems to top their list of priorities.

CNC stands for Computer Numerical Control. A CNC machine is a computer "director" which is composed of machine tools that read a specific set of instructions (in G-code) and is able to “direct” certain manufacturing tasks repetitively. The top industries that use the CNC technology are the Metal and Woodworking industries.

If you are a regular member of a techie forum for entrepreneurs, CNC may be showered with praises because of its performance. Most businessmen also swear by saving a lot of money and time when they started employing CNC technology in their production processes. However, if you are still considering CNC at the expense of the jobs of your employees, it is best that you prefer CNC at two levels: the logical level and the emotional level.

Critical Path To Controlling Deforestation (part 2 of 2)

Simple ways such as saving paper, fixing car fumes, and lessening energy consumption could always be ways to help nature minimize the floating carbon dioxide in the air. These greenhouse gasses are answerable for destroying the ozone, which then is responsible for the UV rays coming in. You see, if we do not take part in the preservation of wildlife, we can lose the battle at any time of the day.

Bigger contributions to nature's rehabilitation are replanting and controlling the degree of damage to the forested lands. Government policies should strictly be implemented and followed. Illegal use of the forest and its natural inhabitants should thus be constrained. If people are governed by laws which threaten them, they will surely back off from any unlawful and illegitimate activity.

The Future Paths

The future path of deforestation actually depends on human answers and decisions. The endpoint is obviously fatal if things continually get out of hand. Various remodeling and rebuilding efforts are on the move right now; and if the trends continue to rise the good way, the scenario can be totally overwhelming.

Government reinforcement should clearly be demonstrated to finally control deforestation rates and to put unlawful programs to an end. Creation of repression and reserves are the measures used to finally stop unauthorized practice. If things go about this way, and if people are eager to follow, the future path of the world can clearly be predicted.

The critical step to controlling deforestation is asking people to join. Without the world's largest number of inhabitants on the move, our drive to halt deforestation could not take place. The support that the government and the citizens can give is the most crucial ingredient to finally say goodbye to such unlawful practice.

Critical Path To Controlling Deforestation (part 1 of 2)

It is at increasingly alarming rates at which deforestation runs right now. More than 80% of the forested areas have been compromised since the year 2003. If you try to take a look at the satellite overviews of deforested sites, you can almost actually see that there is nothing left of the green lands that we richly used to possess.

Now, you can only watch bits and pieces of it floating separately and widely away from each other. Controlling deforestation is a controversial issue these days; and the means of plotting the rate is available for man to use. However, man could be the only key for the future survival of the planet. Without much enthusiasm and care for the remaining part of nature, it is likely to flourish one day without us knowing about it.

The Earth is totally threatened by the loss of nature because it remains to be our number one hope in breathing and living on this planet. Unbeknownst to many, the biggest forests are the homes of carbon and the lungs of the earth. Without them functioning properly, our vital means to live will be lost; and there is no way of taking it back anymore. The support nature gives us should be repaid with utmost care and affection. Man should follow the path to nature restoration before everything else gets out of control.

Simple Ways You Can Do To Preserve Nature

There are complex ways where we can reach our hands out to nature. First, distinguish environmental necessities from luxuries. The latter are the ones that are nice to have but are actually costless. Necessities are the basic things we must have in order to survive. Combat ecological change through knowing what can be eliminated and what should be retained. All that threatens nature, safety of the people, and health should be disregarded.
