Women and Heart Disease: Heart Healthy Fats # 2

Part 2: Unsaturated and Trans Fats

In part 1, we learned that we do need some fats, and why saturated fats are not so good for us. In part 2, we'll learn about unsaturated and trans fats. In the last part, we will learn how to incorporate heart healthy fats into our diets.

Monounsaturated Fats
Monounsaturated fats have one double bond. Sometimes monounsaturated fats are called omega 9 fatty acids, a term which describes where the double bond is in oleic acid, the most common monounsaturated fat.

Monounsaturated fats are used in our bodies mainly to make cell membranes. Cell membranes that are mostly monounsaturated fat are flexible and fluid, so they can adapt to different conditions.

Nuts and avocadoes are high in monounsaturated. Olive oil is mostly monounsaturated fat. Other oils that contain good amounts of monounsaturated fats are peanut oil and canola oil.

Polyunsaturated Fats
Sometimes you'll see polyunsaturated fats called PUFA's (polyunsaturated fatty acids). PUFA's have more than one double bond, so they can participate in metabolic activities. Their shape makes them flexible, kind of like a spring, and they are an important component of cell membranes, especially in some specialized areas of the body. Most of the polyunsaturated fats we use are omega 6 and omega 3 fatty acids.

Omega 6 fatty acids
Omega 6 fatty acids are essential for a number of metabolic processes, and especially for the inflammatory response. Inflammation is a response to some kind of threat to the body. Inflammation can occur at the cellular level or it can be a systemic (whole body) response.

Omega 3 fatty acids
Omega 3 fatty acids are also essential for metabolic processes. Omega 3 fatty acids balance the omega 6 fatty acids, and they have an anti-inflammatory response.

Additionally, a particular type of omega 3 fatty acid, DHA, is an essential component of brain and nervous system cells, eye cells and sperm.

Few of us get enough omega 3 fatty acids. Many of the "diseases of civilization," such as heart disease, cancer and arthritis have been linked to omega 3 deficiency. Specifically, research has proven that adding omega 3 fatty acids to your diet helps prevent heart disease.

Omega6: Omega3 Fatty Acid Ratio
Ideally, omega 6 and omega 3 fatty acids balance each other out. We are not sure yet what the ideal ratio between them is, but we think we need about twice as much omega 6 fatty acids as we do omega 3 fatty acids. Unfortunately, in the Standard Western diet, we get about thirty (30) times as much omega 6 fatty acids. Many people feel this is why we have high rates of heart disease and other illnesses.

Trans Fats
Trans fats are made when other fats are heated to high temperatures. Oddly enough, trans fats have the same chemical formulas as polyunsaturated fats. It's their shape that's different. They bend the wrong way, which prompts them from participating in the metabolic reactions that PUFA's do.

Like saturated fats, trans fats are stiff and inflexible. When they are incorporated into cell membranes, the cells can not function normally.

Cunninlingus For Beginners – 3 Steps to Make Her Squeal With Delight!

One of the hardest things to do as a guy, is to go down on a girl and provide amazing cunnilingus. In all honesty, it does take some practice and some learning on the different techniques that work amazingly well. But there are definitely some things you can do as a beginner to make her squeal in absolute delight. Let’s get started:

1. Warm her up. Don’t dive right in, but rather warm things up by kissing, touching and licking. Slowly make your move downtown. Once you are there you want to continue to warm things up, by kissing and licking the thighs and the vagina area. Once you hear that she’s getting excited, then you can zero in on the clitoris and go to work.

2. Go gentle with a FLAT tongue. You can experiment later with a firmer, more pointed tongue, but for beginners it’s best to use a flat tongue to start with. Girls can be very sensitive and many have stated a firm, pointed tongue can be too harsh. Go gentle and feel her out. If she’s sensitive then take it easy and maneuver slowly.

3. Use this Technique. For a good starter technique, simply focus on tongue circles. Just go round and round with your tongue as if you are making circles. This is a basic, but effective technique. Beyond your circle action you can vary the speed, you can go from small circles to occasional larger circles and then back to small, and you can do spiral circles where you start small and gradually go larger, then reverse it. There are many variations you can perform, just pay attention and see how well she responds to the particular circle technique you are performing.

What Human Growth Hormone is and Keeping Away From Synthetic HGH

Human Growth Hormone or HGH as it is commonly called is a peptide hormone secreted by the pituitary gland. It drastically boosts and heightens tissue growth by encouraging protein to form.

Usually it is produced naturally by the brain, but as we age the amount that we produce slows significantly, especially after age 30. It is responsible first and foremost for growth, but it is also thought and seen to be the fountain of youth since this is what improvements tissue repair, cell replacement and brain and enzyme activity.

Because it is thought to be the main hormone for growth HGH has been successfully used to reverse and fix problems of abnormally short children, giving them some extra inches.

It has been used to increase muscle mass in the aging, and significantly reduce the fat that they have had in their bodies.

But is there a way of avoiding all the injections, pills, and sprays on the market and create your own fountain of youth?

Studies have shown that there can be a significant amount of side-effects not to mention exorbitant costs of human growth hormone products, so there must be another way to work around aging.

In reality the body does not stop typically producing HGH, but it just produces less and less of it as the years go by. Through through proper dieting, and more importantly through high impact anaerobic exercises your body will produce higher levels of growth hormone. Furthermore trying to keep your body fat to a minimum while maintaining your muscle mass will help greatly in maintaining a fit and trim body. In essence you do not need all these HGH products. Remember that muscle burns calories faster than fat, so it is always better to keep and maintain certain levels of muscle mass as we continue to age.

Stress is also one of the causes of premature aging, those who mull and muse about their problems too much and think negatively usually age and get sick much faster. Those living with a healthy and positive outlook in life often age more gracefully, and they look it too, without ever needing any HGH enhancements.

Stay away from negative people who seem to see the worst in life instead of the best in life. Count your blessings and forget your troubles. Try smiling everyday, as studies have shown that laughter can be beneficial for your health. Laughter is after all the best medicine.

Aging and the Human Growth Hormone will always have a connection. Many have branded HGH as the "elixir of youth." The results may be encouraging but nothing beats an all natural approach to trying to stay and feel young. There are ways to keep fit and stay young without the need to take HGH. Perhaps this article will help people remember that aging gracefully is sometimes a lot better and more effective than aging artificially through doses of Human Growth Hormone.

Differences Between Damask, Brocade, and Jacquard

Often times, uneducated individuals use the terms damask, brocade, and Jacquard interchangeably with one another. It can often confuse those who are unfamiliar with the world of fabrics. Jacquard is a decorative or woven pattern that is created by using a Jacquard attachment on a loom. The attachment resembles the punch card on a piano. It is purported to offer better versatility and fabric control for the operator of the loom. The Jacquard technique can be applied to a variety of fabrics, and it is commonly used on brocade and damask fabrics. It is commonly used in a variety of apparel and home goods, from tablecloths to bedding.

Brocade is defined as a lavishly decorated, shuttle woven fabric. It is primarily woven from silk; although, it is possible to find brocade constructed from a blend of silk and synthetic fibers. Often, it will be embroidered with gold or silver thread. Brocade can trace its origins back to India, where weaving is a traditional art form. It is typically woven on a loom, and it may or may not be woven using the Jacquard technique. It is also characterized by the manner in which the brocaded or broached parts of the fabric hang in loose groups or are clipped away. Although the scenes and patterns on brocade appear to have been embroidered, the scenes are actually woven into the fabric using advanced weaving techniques that involve manipulating the weft and weave of the fabric. The most common types of scenes depicted on brocade fabric are those of floral prints.

Damask, similarly to brocade, is a fabric that features woven scenes of floral patterns, intricate geometric designs, or simple scenes of domestic life. It may be woven of silk, wool, linen, cotton, or synthetic fibers. However, it is most commonly created from silk. It is primarily different from brocade in the fact that its woven fabric pattern is reversible, while that of brocade is not. Similarly, shorter weft patterns in damask allow for more subtle effects in the fabric to be created as it plays off of shadow and light. Damask weaves also contain a higher thread count than that of brocade. Double damask weaves are the highest quality of damask produced; however, it is also the most expensive.

MLM Leads – How to Generate Them Without Cold Calling

Do you hate cold calling people to join your multi-level marketing business? If so, then you and I are very much alike. I see cold calling as a very inefficient means to an end. Furthermore, I hate receiving cold calls myself. In order "to treat others as I would like to be treated" I generally try to stay away from this annoying tactic. A frequent problem is that cold calling is a common method that uplines instruct their downlines to perform. Here is a quick definition of "cold calling" in case you are not aware. In the most basic terms, it is calling a person who has not shown prior interest in your product or service. I am going to complicate things a little by adding in two layers which may not be traditionally seen as cold calling. The first part is obtaining a genealogy list of previously multi-level marketers and calling them one by one to pitch your program. The second part is calling your "warm list" of personal contacts. In either case, I see each as cold because they have not made the first move in showing interest.

I will explain this a little further.

I see calling MLM'ers on an old genealogy list as a cold call tactic because there is no way to know if they really are interested or even in MLM still today before calling the person. Odds are that these people will not be interested in your program. Second, I include calling your "warm list" in this definition since these individuals have made no objective action to indicate that they are interested in what you have to offer. Most people on your "warm list" are there simply because your know them or you "think" they may be interested in your offer. In each case you are really only going off of your perception that these people might be receptive to you.

There is a better way to go about all of this. This can be illustrated through a story that shows a common practice in other industries.

Imagine there is a restaurant located in a mall. Have you ever noticed how many of them give out free samples of their food? If you think about what they are doing it makes sense. They are ruling out all the objections in your mind that their product may not be the right choice. If you have ever heard that it is better to give than to receive than this is the concept in action. If you do not know how another restaurant's food tastes and you know from the sample that the other restaurant is pretty tasty, odds are you will make your purchase with the restaurant that get out the sample. They took the time to build a small relationship with you. They showed you what they have to offer is top-notch. By giving away a small amount, they receive much more in return.

There is one other thing you must notice about this tactic. The restaurant owners do not hire twenty different people to give out samples and run around the entire food court. They give samples mostly to people that linger around their area trying to make a decision. If they cave out samples to everyone and anyone, they would quickly realize that they were wasting their time.

With this basic premise in mind, how can we use it for another industry like MLM?

What can you use as your free sample?

You have two different routines you can take. One is to give away your product. The other option is to give away your knowledge.

Before I tell you which one I choose, make a mental note about which one you would choose and why?

Ok, ready?

The best method in my opinion is to give away your knowledge. There are a number of reasons for this. First, you are not really giving away your knowledge because even after you share it, you still have it. Second, by displaying the knowledge you have, you position yourself as an expert. This is critical because most people in MLM do not know what they are doing. If you have heard the saying, "the blind leading the blind" then you should get my point. I do not like to give away samples of product in this particular instance because in network marketing, your business is more about networking than retailing. You have to sell yourself first for people to join you. The product is really secondary because without the know-how even the best product will not "sell itself". People that join MLM are buying a machine with the potential to produce residual income. However, most people have no idea how to operate this money machine. That is why it is critical that you prove to your prospects that you not only know how to buy the machine, but you can actually run it also!

Now you know how to generate interest. However, you still need to know how to present this knowledge to the right people. Just like the restaurant can not hire 20 people to give out samples, you can not waste your time calling up cold leads and trying to dazzle them with your knowledge. You have to take a different approach. You need to get prospects coming to you first that are already in a state-of-mind that is conducive to what you have to offer. A very simple way to do this is the place advertisements in various locations that offer helpful information to your prospects. By doing this, people who are actually interested in your services will come to you. This situation is much more advantageous to you since you do not have to waste your time with the majority of the population which will have no interest.

What Is Modernization?

Modernization is the process of change in the sectors of the economy, politics and social systems. These changes reflects the movement of societies from a traditional stage to a more modern phase.

How does modernization occur?

Modernization occurs through:

1. Colonialism: this is an important reason for modernization. The Indian colonial master introduced the English language which was the first sign of modernization.

2. Migration: this is also a reason for modernization. This can especially be illustrated by the migration of Europeans to the colonies in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Aspects of modernization

The following points are the basic aspects of modernization:

1. The modern way of living: this happens when the old way of living changes into a modern way. Example replacement of mat with a dining table or replacement of pitcher with a water cooler.

2. Changes in residence: for the comfort of living, some people changed their residence from wooden huts to houses made with bricks.

3. Mass media: A communicate through narration has now being replaced by newspapers and internet.

4. Urbanization: The domestic migration to cities or urban areas from rural areas. Example: Just after the independence of Pakistan, 87% population was living in villages and 12% was in cities. But presently 68% lives rural ares and 32 % can be found in urban areas. This is one of the main characteristics of modernization.

5. Change of profession. In the beginning, the economy was agrarian in nature, but in due time industrialization occurred. This is another main feature of modernization: the rapid industrialization of societies.

6. literacy and education: a situation whereby the population literacy rates increase dramatically.

7. High per capital income: the significant rise of the per capital income is important due to the higher purchasing power of the people which will, in turn, boost significant economic growth.

Economic aspects of modernization

The economic aspect of modernization can be derived from the following points:

1. Money: this takes place when the barter system has now been replaced with paper money.

2. Wage system: this happens because in traditional societies wages were not connected to time whereas in modern societies wages became related to time.

3. Communication system: communication is compulsory for economic development. because communication is important for economic, social and political functioning.

4. Technology and its application: through modernization, the technology applied in daily lives of the people has replaced the old ways of doing things with manual/animal powert.

5. Preservation of food products: the storage of food and other products and the distribution of such items in a systematic way increases the consumption and production of food products..

Political modernization

Political modernization is regarded as the result of economic development and social mobilization.

Political modernization contains three elements:

1. Validation of authority

2. Development of political participation

3. Differentiation of structure

Characteristics of political modernization

The following are the most important characteristics of political modernization:

1. It increased the influence of a single Authority: with the process of political modernization, the influence of a single authority and its agencies increased and become widespread.

2. Variation of functions: political modernization has brought a clear picture of the differentiation function.

3. Ultimate power rest with the people: political modernization can be observed with the shifting of ultimate power to the people which occurred slowly and gradually.

4. Democratic values and principles become popular: Like Nelson Mandela said: one man, one vote and regular elections to clean up the political swamp.

5. Secularization of politics: the separation of religion and state.

Honesty and Integrity – What Does This Mean to You?

Honesty and Integrity go hand-in-hand, but in today’s world, it seems that people have grown so lax that both of these traits have flown out of the window. In fact, if you ask the majority of today’s youth to give you the truest definition of honesty and integrity, they may be able to tell you that being honest means telling the truth, but they probably won’t be able to tell you anymore than that.

Although most people understand what honesty is – telling the truth – do you understand what telling the truth entails? For example, yes it is wrong to lie, but isn’t it also wrong not to tell the whole truth, or the whole story so to speak? Many people believe that withholding portions of the truth is the same as lying, and if you are doing this, you are not practicing honesty.

But, again, if you ask today’s youth about integrity, most won’t have a clue what you are talking about. This is a word that they know how to spell. They have some small idea of what it pertains to, but they have no real grasp on what it means to have integrity, along with honesty. If you have integrity, it means that you live your life in a moral and ethical way. Honesty covers lying, but integrity seemingly covers everything else in life.

Once we grow up, and are forced to face reality, we learn that the world can be a cold, hard, cruel place. As we work our way through life, often we lose site of our own values. We are trying to get the bills paid, get the kids educated, taking care of elderly parents, trying to hold our marriage together, and trying to live to see our own retirement years and grandchildren. With all of this going on – seemingly all of the time – it isn’t hard to lose sight of our values, which in turn affects our honesty and integrity, even if we never intended for that to happen.

Before you can live your life with honesty and integrity, you first need to have a good sense of who you are, and what you stand for in life. We all have strong feelings concerning certain issues, such as abortion, firearms, and things of this nature. But as big as these issues are, these are the easy ones. Here, you are either on one side of the fence, or the other.

But in the small day-to-day things, where do you stand in terms of your values. For example, is your honesty and integrity so great that if you ran a red light, you would pull over the next policeman that you saw and insist that he give you a ticket? The chances are good that you won’t. But if the cashier at the lunch counter gives you too much change, the second you realize it, are you going to give that extra money back? Hopefully your honesty and integrity would come into play, and you would do everything in your power to get that money back to that cashier.

In order to live a life based on honesty and integrity, you must know who you are and what you stand for, and you must also police yourself on a daily basis, ensuring that you aren’t doing anything that conflict’s with your own values or moral code.

How to Recover Deleted Emails and Restore Them Completely

It can happen to anyone. We accidentally delete an email that we really need. And it just happened to be important work file, attachment or picture. So now what? How can I recover that email? Is it at all possible? Surely, it can be permanently deleted?

Well, there is good news and bad news.

Let’s start with the good news.

Restoring Deleted Emails

If you delete an email, it hasn’t really gone anywhere. Even if you’ve emptied your recycle bin or the “Trash” folder in your Inbox – the email still isn’t deleted. It’s just that your computer system now has no way to figure out where it is. But it’s there, still on your hard drive. By using special email recovery tools you can recover deleted emails because these programs identify these ‘missing’ files and can bring them back to life.

Now the bad news.

Act Quickly and Increase Your Chances

The bad news is you have to act quickly. You only have a small time-frame in which to try to attempt to recover your lost email. Every minute that you waste and continue to use the drive for anything that isn’t related to recovering your emails, you severely decrease your chances of successful email recovery. Why?

Well, because your hard drive is constantly overwriting files to make space for new information you put into it. If your hard drive is full and there is not much space or memory available – it is highly probable that the email has already been overwritten and deleted – permanently.

Other Problems with Recovering Deleted Emails

Not all deleted or lost emails go to “Trash” folder. If you have suffered a computer crash or hardware failure or your operating system is corrupted in some way, then it is unlikely that emails you have deleted can be recovered.

Also, if you haven’t opened the email at all or it hasn’t been deleted the usual way due to file corruption, you probably will have less of a chance to recover and restore the email in its entirety.

Nothing to Lose

Recover deleted email programs search and locate the emails that you have deleted. You can search by entering a specific keyword for example. Then, you can choose to preview the email to see it’s contents and if it’s been recovered in its original state by the program. You can also select to scan for what ever email program you are using (and need to recover) – either web based emails such as Hotmail, Yahoo and Gmail or Outlook Express.

Best bit is this. Most of these email recovery programs are free to download. When they start scanning your hard drive looking for the deleted email and then manage to find it and when you are completely satisfied that that’s your missing email – then you can then proceed to purchase the software.

In essence, you have nothing to lose (if the email is not there – it’s not there) and everything to gain.

Well, at least you can get your deleted email back.

How to Get Approved For an Apartment Even With a Criminal Record

One of the most frustrating episodes ones can encounter is a denial of housing. Apartment complexes, which in reality are run by real estate management firms, use a number of factors to determine who should rent and who should not. One of the most common factors that they use is criminal background check. A criminal history can be one of the greatest huddles one can ever come across in the process of renting an apartment.

The reason apartment communities request a criminal background check is first of all for the safety of the overall community. There is a general consensus that people with violent pasts are bound to fall back into their previous destructive habits. The concept of history repeats itself seems to be a prevailing belief in many places when it comes to criminal history and nowhere more so than in apartment leasing offices.

Another reason why apartment leasing offices conduct a criminal background check is so as to create the appearance of safety in the community and in so doing have the justification to charge more for rent. If a neighborhood or apartment housing community has a high level of crime, then tenants will not want to renew their leases and this means that there will be more housing units which are vacant and which the management has to fill (or risk being censored by the owner). The more housing units are vacant in an apartment community the more it hurts the management bottom line because this drives down the rent.

When conducting criminal background checks, apartments normally concentrate on felony convictions. Misdemeanor crimes which are only punishable by fines are generally not a concern. If you have a misdemeanor, you should not be concerned but if it is a felony you may get a denial.

There are two main ways to get an apartment approval if you have a criminal record. The first one is to check the nature of your offense and see whether you received what is called a deferred adjudication. This is a probation granted to first time offenders and is also known as community supervision. If you were convicted of a misdemeanor, and got probation, you can go to the county clerk’s office and request for what is called a court deposition. This is a print-out that shows the offense, the court that heard the case, and the judgment that was rendered and the fact that you have deferred adjudication. The printout also states that you have successfully completed the community service without any other incidences and that you should not be discriminated against when it comes to services. You can take a copy of this document to an apartment manager and in most cases they will approve you.

Another way to get an apartment is to get an expungement. This is the sealing of your criminal records and can be done depending on whether you’re eligible. There is an excellent eBook out in the market regarding how to get an apartment even with an existing criminal record and bad credit and you can get it at [http://www.simplecreditsecrets.net]

Isolateral Exercise – What is it and Why is it Beneficial? The Answer is Here!

Isolateral exercise is a technique that is used in strength and fitness training to work one particular side of the body at a time rather than trying to train both sides at once. For instance, if you are used to doing traditional push-ups then a more isolateral based movement would be to execute a one-arm push-up. This a great way to maximize the strength on that one side of the body.

So why do people do isolateral-based movements? Well to start, when considering developing a highly effective strength and conditioning program one must include isolateral based movements in their program to optimally develop symmetry and equal total-body strength. There are basically 2 benefits to executing this type of movement. The first is that you allow the working side of the body to lift the weight or resistance on its own without any assistance or compensation from the other side. This allows for a greater increase in strength independently on each side of the body.

The second benefit includes a transfer of strength, or cross transfer, from the working side of the body over to the side that isn’t executing the lift at that particular time. This is why it is still beneficial to train the body, if possible, even during an injury. Your body can still benefit from exercise even if you aren’t training a particular body-part. An example here would be that if a person broke their right arm and that arm is in a sling, then it can’t perform any tasks. However, the left arm can. Doing something as common as arm curls with the left arm can cross transfer strength over to the injured right arm.

So now you know what isolateral exercise is and how it works. You are beginning to learn the secrets of strength and exercise!

How to Fool a Breathalyzer

Want to trick a breath machine into a low test result? Or make sure that you’re not causing a false high reading? Not that difficult, says a law firm of San Diego DUI attorneys and lawyers: just control your breathing.

The simple fact is that these breath machines which determine guilt or innocence in DUI cases are not exactly the reliable devices that law enforcement would have us believe. There are dozens of factors that can cause false test results. An example of that unreliability is the fact that the results will vary depending upon the breathing pattern of the person being tested. This has been confirmed in a number of scientific studies.

In one, for example, a group of men drank moderate doses of alcohol and their blood-alcohol levels were then measured by gas chromatographic analysis of their breath. The breathing techniques were then varied. The results indicated that holding your breath for 30 seconds before exhaling increased the blood-alcohol level by 15.7%. Hyperventilating for 20 seconds immediately before the analyses of breath, on the other hand, decreased the level by 10.6%. Keeping the mouth closed for five minutes and using shallow nasal breathing resulted in increasing the blood-alcohol level by 7.3%, and testing after a slow, 20-second exhalation increased levels by 2%. (“How Breathing Techniques Can Influence the Results of Breath-Alcohol Analyses”, 22(4) Medical Science and the Law 275.)

Dr. Michael Hlastala, Professor of Physiology, Biophysics and Medicine at the University of Washington has gone farther and concluded:

“By far, the most overlooked error in breath testing for alcohol is the pattern of breathing… The concentration of alcohol changes considerably during the breath… The first part of the breath, after discarding the dead space, has an alcohol concentration much lower than the equivalent BAC (blood-alcohol concentration). Whereas, the last part of the breath has an alcohol concentration that is much higher than the equivalent BAC. The last part of the breath can be over 50% above the alcohol level… Thus, a breath tester reading of 0.14% taken from the last part of the breath may indicate that the blood level is only 0.09%.” 9(6) The Champion 16 (1985).

Many police officers know this. They also know that if the machine contradicts their judgement that the person they arrested is intoxicated, they won’t look good. So when they tell the arrestee to blow into the machine’s mouthpiece, they’ll yell at him, “Keep breathing! Breathe harder! Harder!” As Professor Hlastala has found, this ensures that the breath captured by the machine will be from the bottom of the lungs, near the alveolar sacs, which will be richest in alcohol. With the higher alcohol concentration, the machine will give a higher — but inaccurate — reading.

The 20 Year History of the Toyota Motorhome

For almost 20 years various manufacturers made the Toyota motor home in several models. During its heyday, this little camper was produced in over 60 different models and styles of motor homes.

Beginning with the rather small Toyota Chinook camper and carrying on through the largest of the Toyota based Winnebago and Itasca models, the Toyota based motor home help to establish many manufacturers in the RV industry.

Because of the large number of manufacturers it is not uncommon to see similar campers and very different names. The small overall size had to limit the variety of floor plans available. This caused a lot of the manufacturers to build virtual duplicates that varied only in some of the fit and finish type of details.

It wasn’t long until the manufacturers began to expand the size of the camper bodies. Using conventional manufacturing techniques found in the travel trailer industry, the stick and staple type of construction with aluminum siding became the standard.

In the decade of the 1980s production of the Toyota motor home peaked. Many different companies were producing many different models. Some of the larger companies that were in this business were national RV, the producers of the very popular Dolphin series. They also produced the Seabreeze models. At the same time Winnebago was producing the Brave, the Warrior, and the deluxe Itasca Spirit models.

Damen Corporation of Elkhart Indiana produce the Escaper motor home, while Coachman produced the popular Coachman and Savanna models. Leisure Odyssey was building the Americana, Santa Cruz, and the Laguna campers.

The Mini-Mirage was built by Mirage industries, while the still very popular SunRader was constructed with a fiberglass body by Gardener Pacific.

By the late 1980s the length of the camper body had expanded to 22 feet. This caused a severe overload problem on the original half ton pickup axle. A national safety recall was issued by the United States government to correct the problem. Most of the models were given a new one ton axle. However there are still a few units available today that have the unsafe axle. Caution is advised if you are looking at in 1980s version of this very popular camper.

In 1989 V6 appeared on the market in the Toyota chassis. This increased horse power became very popular with the camper owners and production continued until 1994 when Toyota stopped supplying the pickup chassis to the camper manufacturers for safety reasons. Winnebago produced some of the last V6 versions in 1994.

During its production lifetime, the Toyota motor home enjoyed a great popular success and was widely distributed across the country. Today the greatest number of units on the road seem to be concentrated on the east and west coast areas but these motor homes will turn up just about anywhere in the country.

What is the Average Reading Speed and the Best Rate of Reading?

The average reading speed of a child in primary school is around 200 words per minute (wpm). By the time we reach adulthood, it hasn’t improved very much, as, on average, most adults read at a rate of about 200 – 250 wpm. While comprehension at this rate is considered reasonable, at 250 wpm it will be difficult to read large amounts of information in a short period of time.

Certain individuals claim to read at speeds of 10 000 wpm or even 25 000 wpm and say they are still able to understand all they have read. Even though rates like this may be achieved by these exceptional individuals, a speed of 1000 – 1200 wpm is the rate at which contestants read at the World Championship speed reading competitions. Therefore, if your average reading speed comes anywhere near this rate, you can consider yourself doing fantastically well. Do not feel that you need to reach championship levels in order to achieve your learning and reading goals. It is up to each and every individual to decide how far to push the speed limits!

For a person interested in increasing his abilities, a goal of 500 – 800 wpm is an excellent target. At this rate it is possible to get through large quantities of work in a short time and maintain a comprehension level of about 75% or more. This is an excellent level of comprehension and probably more than adequate for any of your required purposes. Compare this to the average reading rate of adults (200 – 250 wpm), where their comprehension level is only half or slightly more of the material they have read.

800 – 1000 wpm would be an outstanding achievement. In order to have reached this level, an individual may have invested in an excellent speed reading course and practiced speed drills. Believe it or not, comprehension at this level is also outstanding, reaching levels of 100% or very close to 100%.

Results of 100 – 200 wpm is considered a basic reading rate. In adult terms this is a below average speed, but for children between the ages of 6 and 12, it may be considered as average. Only low levels of comprehension are achieved at this rate. An adult who reads at this pace will be amazed at what some of the simple techniques will do for his reading speed. Reading at any pace below 100 wpm will probably be read by someone who is still learning to read or perhaps by someone who is reading in a second or third language. At this rate comprehension will be difficult.

Foods To Increase Your Penis Size And Get A Harder Erection – Can Food Help You Get A Bigger Penis?

Is it possible to increase your penis size just by eating certain foods? Food is your daily supply of nutrients that are necessary for maintaining a healthy body. Without these nutrients, your body will suffer from health problems and physical weakness.

But, how does food affect the size of the penis?

Certain foods increase blood flow and can help you get a longer and thicker erection, which can make your penis appear bigger. These foods include eggs, milk, tuna, salmon, liver, carrots, tomatoes, broccoli and brown bread, rice and pasta.

However, these foods won’t actually help you add inches to your size, they will simply improve your erection. To get a much more powerful effect, you need to use certain herbs such as:

  • Catuaba: it is derived from several different kinds of Amazon trees. The natives always considered catuaba as a male aphrodisiac and also a potency enhancer. Catuaba is usually combined with Muira Puama. This combination gives us a powerful remedy that elevates your mood, increases semen volume, enhances erections, makes your penis look longer and fuller and increases libido. Both of these herbs have a very low level of toxicity and virtually no side effects.
  • Maca (also called Lepidium meyenii) is a plant native to Peru. Several clinical trials have shown that maca can increase libido and improve the quality of the semen. However, Maca does not actually affect sex hormones directly, but it is used by the endocrine system of the body. This way it boosts the testosterone level naturally. Furthermore, it also fights impotency and acts as an aphrodisiac. Maca is known as the Peru’s Natural Blue Pill and can increase your sexual stamina and improve athletic performance.
    Tribulus terrestris is a plant native to southern Europe, southern Asia, Africa, and Australia. This plant increases the body’s natural testosterone levels and can improve sexual performance and muscle building.
  • Tribulus enhances sexual stamina by stimulating the androgen receptors inside the brain. The Chinese have been using Tribulus for thousands of years to treat men with low testosterone.
  • Barrenwort: barrenwort is also known as Horny Goatweed and it contains icariin, which has been shown to improve penile blood flow. Barrenwort is actually a quite rare plant that thrives beneath trees with shallow roots.
  • Eleuthero (also called Eleutherococcus senticosus) is a small shrub that is native to Northeastern Asia. Eleutherococcus senticosis enhances immune function and physical performance and leads to increased endurance. Eleuthero is considered to be an adaptogenic herb that can improve sex drive and increase the production of testosterone and blood flow to the penis.

10 Signs That He Likes You

You met this great guy and you’ve been dating each other for some time. Not in an exclusive relationship, but you have been spending time together. Phone calls that lasted for more than an hour, flirty smiles are exchanged.

You feel good about him.

Now is the million dollar question that you want to find out.

Does he like you? Is he into you, or not?

How to know the answer? What are the tell-tale signs that he is into you?

Well, besides using your woman’s intuition which is not something I can describe here nor teach, I’ll do my best to “simplify” this complicated thing call “love”.

10 Signs That He Likes You

1. Watching the same movie twice

He’s seen the movie. Although he wasn’t very impressed with it, but because you haven’t catch it he suddenly changed his tune and said he really would like to watch it a second time.

And so by the way, if you haven’t seen it too, why not let’s go catch it together, he asked.

You know his intention is then not on the movie, but the company really.

So girls, do not expose his true intentions. It’s enough to know the underlying truth, be appreciative ok?

2. His car is playing songs that just sound too, familiar?

Because those are your favorites! You have merely casually mentioned to him once, and the next time he drives you, you’re in for a musical feast.

Is he always so attentive to everyone’s needs and preferences? Well, you observe how he interacts with others and you tell me.

3. He asks that question!

Well, he will try to be as casual and nonchalant about it as possible. But no matter how cool he acts, deep down inside he is burning and dying to know the answer to this question:

“So, are you single?”

If your answer is yes, then this will be the next one:

“No way. How can someone like you be single? You mean, you don’t have a boyfriend?”

Now watch his body language closely. If you notice he is feeling tensed up by now, and totally relieved when your answer is “No” then you get the message.

4. He asks for a follow-up date even before the date is over

Now if he isn’t interested in you, why would a man be so anxious to “book” your time for another date with him even when the date is only half-way through?

Unless you look like Jessica Alba, or you can give him a million-dollar job like Donald Trump. If you aren’t either one of the two or belong to either one of the category, then this can be a clue to his heart…

5. Your name is not foreign to his friends

If you do get a chance to meet up with his friends, which you know you can create such opportunities, you’ll get some nice juicy bits from them.

But this may not be very fool-proof, neither are all of these signs, but if his friends raise their eyebrows or grin sheepishly when he introduces you to them, then that means word has been around within that gang on someone in particular, which could very well be you.

6. He can’t remove his eyes from you

Ok, we know that’s not the kind of stare-through-your-clothes type, but rather a slightly more loving kind of gaze that speaks of admiration and liking.

If the eyes could speak, they may just pop this question on behalf of their owner “You are the most beautiful lady I’ve ever seen. Would you like to be more than friends?”

The best test? When a bombshell or super gorgeous babe sashays past, you need to alert him before he notices her. (Of course, this is really carrying it a little far ha ha…. what does it take to stop a man’s roving eyes? I can’t find the answer yet)

7. He prompts you

Every now and then, he will find a chance to ask you what type of guy you are attracted to and are looking for in a partner.

Unless he’s doing what I’m doing (which puts me in a really privileged position to ask ha ha), what business is it for him to know what kind of man you like if not for the fact that he is secretly plotting his way to become the most suitable candidate?

Don’t be surprised if he starts putting himself down or discrediting himself by saying things about him that don’t fit into the list you described. He is testing waters to see what your reaction would be, which will give him some clues on how you feel for him.

For example you listed “having a good sense of humor and making you laugh” as one of the traits which you will be attracted to, and he says “Oh, I’m a boring guy actually. I don’t know how to crack jokes or make girls laugh. I must be boring you then” be careful of what you reply him.

If you say “Ya, I don’t think you are the type of humorous person either” versus “Oh is that so? But I never find you boring at all. In fact, I feel we have lots of things to chat about” he will either be secretly weeping in sorrow or jumping in joy .

By saying things like that, he is kind of “forcing” you to give a respond, and either way you will be giving away clues on how you feel. So girls, if you fancy this guy too, you know what kind of answer you should give, right?

8. He is doing you favors

Yes, he doesn’t mind ferrying you around if he has a car. He will also volunteer to accompany you all the way to an out-of-the-way place to satisfy a sudden craving you have for a food delicacy that is sold there.

He wiil help you with your school work, express his interest in lending you a hand for errands you need to run, buy some things for your family etc.

If a man isn’t interested in developing something further than friendship with you, unless he is too bored with his life or he’s Mr Super Ultra Nice, then I wonder what could it be that prompts him to be everywhere when you need his help.

9. He’s very anxious about celebrating special occasions.

Like Valentine’s Day (if he asks you out on that day, I would really suspect his intention, wouldn’t you?) and your birthday.

He would long to celebrate this special day with you, and preferably alone.

10. He buys you gifts

Sending gifts on no apparent occasion and for no reason is the easiest way for a man to declare his interest in a girl without verbalizing it. By giving you something, he is testing to see how you react. Usually he will do this when he still isn’t sure of how you feel towards him, so at least he won’t feel rejected if you reject his gift.

At the same time, he is hoping to make you happy with that gift. And if you are happy, he will be too!

Summarizing the above, they may not be 100% fool-proof scientifically proven signs to show he’s into you. They came from pure experience and observation. I purposely didn’t include things like body language where he will check how he look before meeting you, pointing his leg and facing his body towards you etc because I just want to make this as non-scientific as possible.

So ladies, hope this gives you some clues to how this man who is appearing in front of you pretty often lately feels about you. Does he has only platonic friendship in mind, or something more?
