One more guitar added to his inventory by my son meant the beginning of a search for guitar speaker that he is yet to try. Before he began his search online, he spoke to some of his friends in his amateur troupe and the name screamin eagle came up thrice.
That did it and he started searching first for reviews of Screamin' Eagle 12" 50W Guitar Speaker. I knew what he will do next. Irrespective of the reviews he read online, he would then start to look for used Screamin' Eagle 12" 50W Guitar Speakers just to try them out.
A few minutes ago, he asked me to watch a video review of the screamin eagle. I obliged and what I saw did not convince me. Nevertheless, my son did not bother about my opinion. Well, that was expected too.
He was convinced that he wanted to be among the few elite people that boasted of using screamin eagle and borrowed one from his troupe member. It won’t be long before he bought a new one.

My son is a living proof for the above statement. In spite of my stern disapproval of his addiction to playing video games even while watching TV, he kept on and I can firmly say that it improved his logical mind to a great extent.
In addition, video gaming equipped him with trying various options while trying to solve a problem in real life. His decision making skill became sharp.
While many people believe that online video games can increase anti-social behaviors, violence, loss of communication skills, and even health issues, such as obesity, some critics seem to agree that online video games can help the game players increase hand eye coordination. However, I am glad that most critics have already recognized the beneficial effects of video games.
Online educational games provide game players brain training that can help them become even more intelligent. These games work by testing the cognitive functions of your brain, such as memory, reasoning, logical decision making, and so fort .Let’s visualize yourself working out at a local health club to get your body in shape, playing educational video games is just like taking your brain to the same gym to get mentally in shape.
Educational games are often viewed as boring, un-cool, and primitive, but the truth is that educational games could be as much fun as any other types of game. Often, those educational game player could have a lot more fun because they feel rewarded from the game.
Think back to that game of trivia you played with friends a few years ago, do you remember how good you felt when getting the right answer? That's a type of feeling the game player could get from education games. The more people play these games, the greater confidence they have and which could bring them a better chance of succeeding at whatever they set their mind to achieve.
After you play a few on line games, ask yourself if you've learned anything new and you will be probably surprised with the answer.

To put it simply so that even a layman can understand, a battery is used as a type of device that is used to store energy, making it available for use in an electrical form. It consists of one or even more cells.
History of battery:
It may surprise you but Baghdad Batteries are thought to be the first known in history, dating back from sometime between the years of 250 BCE and 640 BCE!
Batteries can be divided into two main categories, rechargeable batteries and non-rechargeable batteries.
Disposable batteries are also known as primary cells. They are intended for a one time use only, to be used until the chemical changes used to induce its electrical current supply have been finished. Their common usages include smaller, more portable devices that have either a low current drain or are used away from any alternative power source.
Rechargeable batteries, also known as secondary cells, have a longer usage life since they can be recharged after their power has been drained. You can do so by applying an externally supplied electrical current. This causes a reversal in the chemical changes that occur during the battery’s use. These devices used to do this are commonly known as rechargers or chargers.
The ‘wet cell,’ or lead-acid, battery is the oldest form of the rechargeable battery that is still in today’s use. This battery contains a liquid found in an unsealed container that requires the battery to be kept in an upright position. The area in which it is used must be well-ventilated so as not to cause the ventilated, hydrogen gas to display its explosive qualities.
The lead-acid battery is quite heavy, although its cost to manufacture is low and the high surge content levels allow it to be a commonly used battery in places where its weight and handling ease are not of any concern.
The most common form of a lead-acid battery is the car battery.
A gel battery is known to be an expensive lead-acid battery type, containing a semi-solid electrolyte that is used to prevent spillage.
The portable types are considered to be ‘dry cells.’ They are sealed units that are useful in appliances such as cell phones and laptop computers. These types of cells also include, nickel-cadmium or NiCd, nickel metal hydride or NiMH, and lithium-ion or Li-Ion, listed in the order of their increasing power density and also their cost.
Both disposable batteries and rechargeable batteries come in various standard sizes. This is so they can easily be used in a wider amount of appliances. The most commonly known types of batteries are the A-series, including A, AA, AAA, and AAAA. There are many, many more less common battery types, and their usages vary greatly.

The wisest advice our forefathers gave us is: Money saved is money earned.
While there are several ways to save money such as not buying something that we can live without, buying online and comparison shopping, we can save real big money by making use discounts offered by thousands of online shops.
When we buy online, we either directly open our preferred shopping web site such as buy.com or do a comparison shopping by looking for the same item we want to purchase in several websites. This is a sure fire way to save money.
While doing a comparison shopping, we might spot discount offers boldly displayed in some of the websites. If we can make use of such discount coupons, we could save enough to pay for our annual car insurance or a monthly mortgage payment! Yes, the savings could be as high as that much!
We wish there is some way that we could get notified of announcements of discounts offered websites. It is a genuine wish; there is nothing wrong in it. Only smart people wish like that.
I know of one Jared Moss. He maintains a website exclusively for publishing discount offers announced by several leading online stores. In fact, I even saw my favorite Shari’s Berries offer up to 15% discount. If you don’t know Shari’s Berries, it is where you can get the most beautiful and the tastiest chocolates in the world.
Jared Moss’s web site is called “Coupon Audit”. He publishes all the discount offers offered by various online shops and arranged it under several categories that include:
Home & Garden
Similarly, one can shop by the name of the store arranged alphabetically. Now, don’t ask me to list all the stores here. It could run to several pages. I noticed big names that include Lacoste, Spencers and so on.
Overall, I believe couponaudit.com can be your personal money saver.

I was skeptic when I read that even social media groups are likely to spread computer viruses. As an avid internet marketers, I have been associated with more than 400 FB groups and 300 Google plus communities. My computer was never infected because of my involvement with them.
So, who actually spreads computer viruses and malware? It is difficult to assimilate the reports that they are people who deliberately sabotage computers with viruses.
What Computer Viruses Really Are
You can call any malicious computer program a virus. In reality, there are at least seven distinct types of malicious software, or malware, commonly affecting computers today. The most common of these are worms, Trojans, and spyware.
So, what's the difference between computer viruses and the other types of malware? The difference is that computer viruses are just about the only ones that regularly shut down computers and cause other obvious damage. The most common of the other kinds of malware--worms, Trojans, and spyware--are usually only detectable with a special scan.
The Real Danger of Computer Viruses
If the other types of malware are so unobtrusive that they can only be detected with a special scan, then what's to worry about? For starters, these programs are called malicious for a reason: they are designed to cause some kind of damage, if not to your computer, then to someone else's.
Worms are most famously used to damage, destroy, or disrupt other computer networks than the one on which the host computer is located. For instance, worms have been used by website owners to shut down rival websites by sending overwhelming numbers of requests to the computer that hosts that website.
Worms have also been used to send out viruses to other computers, often without infecting the host machine--after all, what would it benefit the worm to shut down its host computer?
Trojans, in turn, are often used to insert worms and other malware on your computer, even if the Trojan itself does no damage.
But even if you don't care what happens to anyone else, you should still be concerned about one kind of malware: spyware, a kind of malware that, true to its name, collects data from your computer and sends it back to a remote host.
Most spyware is only interested in monitoring your internet usage so it can tell other programs, called adware, what advertising to popup on your computer. However, there are criminal spyware programs that steal financial data, or perform a thorough identity theft. Don't think you have personal or financial data on your computer?
Some spyware programs contain a keylogger, which is a program that copies whatever you type, usually in order to snatch passwords. Even if you keep no financial information on your computer, if you ever buy anything over the web, the keylogger would allow its owner to buy stuff using the same information you typed in to buy stuff yourself.
I used to warnings from my web host that my site is infected with malware but when scanned I found them to be really harmless though I would immediately delete them and get back my site up and running in a few hours.
