Video feedback for the vintage 30 speakers.

As ever, my son sought my husband’s opinion on the affordable vintage 30 from guitar center but the only difference this time was he bought the guitar speakers first and then waited for the opinion.

I thought it odd because my son never bought anything related to sound without asking his father who is known to have sound ears. He can spot the quality of a sound even while relaxing on the beach where the wind made people to talk very loudly to be heard.

Nevertheless, my husband listened for full five minutes before speaking about his impression on the vintage 30 guitar speakers. He said only one thing to my son, “Roshan, you should have bought two pairs of them to really enjoy the rich sound”.

He is now in the process of making a video feedback for the vintage 30 speakers.

After school activities.

The academic year is coming to an end and the students are waiting to break free from me. However, teacher’s duty is not yet over. For millions of parents around the world, the year does not end with the final school bell. There have to find ways to keep their children active throughout the holidays usefully.

Keeping children happy, teachers and parents have devise after school activities.  Teachers know that after school activities thrive only if they are backed by sufficient parental involvement.

Many children attend guitar or violin classes, followed by ballet and squeeze in some time for play dates in between just before they rush home in time for bed.

I am contemplating on drawing out some unique activities this year. I have looked into creative scrap books made by a few Aussie students. On a business perspective, I am thinking of motivating some students to learn wedding decoration.

Let me see how it all goes.

The benefits of social networking for business as well as personal cannot be put into words; one has to be present in Facebook to understand. Nowadays, no one is surprised if even a road side vendor is using mobile. In fact, you may not know that he is the one who is effectively using mobile to grow his business.

It won’t be too long before he too jumps into the Facebook wagon by outsourcing. As a matter of fact, a small time realtor who depends only on mobile communication for his business had one taken my help to advertise his services in Quickr. I am sure by this time; he would have his fan page in Facebook.

We all know that Facebook networking has grown from personal to profession. This growth and change is a result of professionals, entrepreneurs who have realized that the crowd that lingered around Facebook is their potential customers and clients.
Social networking for business growth is an economically viable option. Let’s look at how Facebook networking can benefit your business.

Huge Exposure
 One of the things Facebook is famous for is the scope for infinite exposure. It’s really unbeatable. When it is used strategically and consistently, you will notice a distinct increase in your company’s brand visibility.  If you are posting comments, tips, advice, and offers regularly, you will build credibility and respect, which in turn will lead to increased sales.

No Cost Marketing
If you use the Facebook page in combination with other applications, you will discover that there are a number of excellent tools you can use to market your products/services and promote your business. Though it will take you a little while to learn to use all these tools, but you will master them in due course.

Sunny Isles and Sothebys-what a combination!

Looking constantly for a place to live for the rest of our life seems to be the one preoccupation for which there are no exceptions. This applies even to those who have just moved into a place of their choice after a long search.

We never seem to be happy with our chosen home when we see a real estate advertisement similar to sothebys miami that allures us with better neighborhood or more independence for a slightly higher price than our present house.

If wooded background is preferred by most of the Indians, then, beach side homes are all time favorite of Americans. When it comes to sea side living, Miami is the first choice of Americans. Miami offers a sea facing house for all. Condos beckon middle class people and villas and palatial bungalows are grabbed up by the rich and famous.

A distant cousin of mine recently moved into a condo in Sunny Isles, Miami built by Sotheby’s. When I looked the photographs, I came to understand why Miami is the most sought after place in America.  Just fantastic house.

A question to Ganguly and Dravid.

Dear Ganguly and Dravid. Being a big fan of both of you, I always read whenever your views about Indian cricket team is published. As I already expressed, I was really shocked when you expressed your strong opinion about the way Dhoni led his team in New Zealand.

Both of you wanted Kholi to lead India. It was obvious that the BCCI heeded to your opinion and Kholi got the captaincy within a few weeks of your views. I thought Kholi's temperament would disqualify him to be a leader though he is the best batsman in the world today.

Now, Indian team is back without the Asia cup. What did Kholi do that India did not win? How his captaincy is different from that of Dhoni? Please cite specific instances when you are affirmative.

Two ways to overcome Childhood Fears

Of all the fears we carry to our grave, fears that we picked from our childhood dominates other fears. Do you agree with me? None is an exception in this aspect. As children, we are more prone to develop fears because of our limited understanding capacity.

We could not understand the behavior of other children of our same age, our parent’s admonitions etc. It applies to our reasoning capacity in terms of identifying what is rational or irrational.  May be that is why childhood fears are always cited as irrational fears.

Nevertheless, we need to understand developing fear is completely normal. Irrational fears are more commonly known as childhood fears since they are not triggered by actual material world and are often imaginary.

It is an effect caused by the development of a child's mental and emotional activity, as well as exposure to new people or environment. However, a few also insist that childhood fears must be conquered as it can potentially be harmful and limiting for the child.  I agree with this view.

How do you overcome childhood fears?

Most individuals who suffer from childhood fears do not really learn to let go of that fear and as a result carry that fear with them even when they're grown up. This level of fear is often categorized as childhood trauma .

Here are two effective ways to face and conquer childhood fears that I happen to read recently. I am reproducing them here.

Confronting Fears
Recognizing fears is your first step towards finding overcoming it. Unless you identify the source of your fears, you will never be able to find a solution or treatment for it. Since most childhood fears are irrational, it is best to talk about it with your friends or family members. Talking enables you to release any emotional burden that you experience as an effect of these childhood fears. Though it seem rather easy, talking about your childhood fears to other people is never easy. However, you need to be open with this idea in order to relieve any tension.

Seeking Professional Help

If you are not open to the idea of discussing your fears with family or friends, then seeking professional help is the best step towards overcoming childhood fears. Psychological experts are equipped with the proper training and knowledge that would help people suffering from fears and traumas to release their fears. You can also benefit from seeking psychological help in order to deal with your childhood issues and let go of any fears that you had to deal with over the years.

I heard it clear; Did you?

The world is becoming noisy. Stage performers found it a necessity to have sound reproducing equipments that beat the external noise and still deliver high quality and undistorted sound. The evolution of speakers started and ended at good behringer eurolive b212d, a 550 WATT speaker system with a built in woofer which was also a part of the speaker evolution.

This speaker system is built based on a sound principle: “In order to overcome the external noise, you don’t have to shout more”.  I am sure this explains why this PA system is turning out to be the hot favorite in the music industry.

The said speaker (look at the image) makes you guess it is heavy. On the contrary, it is not considering the high quality 550 watt sound it delivers. It weighs only 16.32 KGs.
Built on Class D amplifier technology, it is meant to consume less power than speakers of same specifications.

What an invention!
