Welding Jobs: Ideas You Can Use At Home To Make Money Welding (No Boss While You Make $100,000)

What if you could make $100,000 a year welding from home?

What if you could make even an extra $500 a month from home, using your current skills? If you are a welder with basic welding skills and you are between jobs or you are being under paid in your current job, it might be worth your time to read this article – let’s think outside the box for just a minute on how you can make money welding from home.

From Home Welding # 1:

Teaching or tutoring any skill is a very profitable business. In any town of any size you’ll see at least one tutoring business in a strip mall brick and mortar location. In that same town will be at least a dozen other tutors working from home, making good money.

Yes, most of the time they are tutoring math and reading to students. Lean back and think about what skills you have that can also be used in a tutoring business you can set up and milk cash from, like milk from a cow.

Let’s say you are good enough with TIG to weld razor blades or pop can butts.

If you can teach a non welder to operate a TIG torch good enough to go on and practice on their own at their home in about 3 hours of your hands on theirs – they will pay up to $100 an hour for 3 hours of TIG instruction. Just 2 students a day would bring you $100,000 a year. If you think I’m kidding I’m NOT! There are many reasons why education is so valuable – and that includes intense, focused tutoring in welding.

6G pipe welding is the highest paid of all welding certifications – most 6G welders make $100k to $300k a year – and demand is crazy. However, if you are a 6G welder and you want to stay home, you can set up and teach 6G in your garage. Let’s say you do this with 7 students, each paying you $10,000 for a 3 month course. Yes, they will pay it – especially if you show them how they will have more time with your hand on theirs (the #1 secret to learning 6G fast).

From Home Welding # 2:

I was in Palm Springs the other day. I have been in and around the trades for 30 years… and when you see a tradesman’s truck and it is late model without dents or many scratches, clean, organized and well equipped, it means (99% of the time) that guy is making money.

I pulled up to a light behind just such a truck – “Joe’s BBQ Service and Repair.” That’s it – that is all Joe does. He will weld cast aluminum or steel. He’ll clean and polish. He’ll replace a burner or a control. OR he’ll buy your old unit and sell / or sell you a new one.

Yes, you need a town with a lot of high end BBQs. Other than that, go get it.

From Home Welding # 3:

Large steel cut outs. In art of all kinds, size matters. For example, 20 years ago we purchased two 4′ long coat racks – each is a piece of 1.5″ x 1.5″ x 1/8″ angle 4′ long with 6 horse shoes welded to the angle to hang the coats.

On the horizontal surface of the angle is welded a scene made of 7 horse and 7 tree cut-outs. We paid $185 for each of these 20 years ago… that would be about $300 a piece in today’s dollars.

The problem with you making these is that the 14 cut outs on each unit are too small too many to cut by hand – you need a computerized plasma table to make these.

Here is where the magic of size makes all the difference.

The artist who drew the cut outs on our coat rack was good. Each of the 7 horses is different and beautiful, as well as the trees. Any – or all of these – cut outs can be scaled up with chalk onto a sheet of say 4′ x 8′ x 3/16″ steel. Now, all you need is a plasma or an oxy torch to create the large version.

What would a horse cut from a 4′ x 8′ sheet sell for?

$300 to $700. It would depend on where you are and how you market it. Marketing is a large part of any business. Good marketing is not hard – you can do it.

You can see, if you could get a “business pipe” full of inventory and sales and you were delivering 2 horses a day, you could easily make $100k. The other major opportunity with big cut outs is gates. The key to all of this stuff in the art category is beautiful line drawings. If you are not an artist, hire one on the condition that they sign the copyright to you.

There are endless ideas to utilize even your most basic welding skills from home to make an excellent living or just extra money. The trick is:

Step A:

Find what will work best for you.

Step B:

Write out a simple plan of attack. Don’t put the cart before the horse. Many small businesses fail because the owner gets all wrapped up in the details and loses site of what is important. Here is what is important: Don’t spend money – MAKE MONEY!

Step C:

The first rule of business is to GET NOTICED. That is also the end goal of all marketing – once you have enough eyeballs on you, you will succeed. The common mistake is to leave marketing for last while concentrating on every little rule and piece of paper. A business license will do you no good if you don’t make money! Save your money and get it (if you really need one) when you make some money. Towns and cities will simply say, “do you have a business license?” When they ask, say: “I’m getting one now.”

Conclusion:

You are blessed to live in a country where you can go from nothing to something in a hurry. However, to get anywhere in a hurry requires running hard. You’ll never regret it.

What should you do next?

5 Warning Signs That Your Air’s Too Dry (and How Room Humidifiers Can Help)

I’m sure your well aware that winter is a time of colds, cracked lips and inflamed sinuses. But you may be surprised to learn that room humidifiers can help.

This is because the major culprit is often dry air. The fact is that in winter we tend to seal ourselves up at home with the heating on. This dries out the air. The result is that we spend a lot of time in an arid environment and the results are not pleasant.

If dry air is your problem, you can easily solve it with a room humidifier. But to make sure you need one, let’s look at five warning signs that your air is too dry. The first sign that your air’s too dry is that your skin and hair feels unpleasantly dry and starts to itch. Next, your eyes dry out and itch and your lips begin to crack.

As time passes, you may find your sinuses aching as the membranes dry out. This can lower your body’s defenses so you may become more prone to catching persistent coughs and colds. Another giveaway sign is that your start to snore more as the mucus membranes in your nasal passages and throat dry out.

Finally, spare a thought for you poor house plants. If you see them starting to wilt, it may well be a sign that the humidity level in your home is too low. Bear in mind that the above symptoms can have causes other than just dry air. Most people have sinus problems and colds during the cold weather. But if all the symptoms appear together, it would be a good idea to check out the humidity level in your home.

You can do this with an inexpensive device called a hygrometer. The optimum humidity level is from around 35% to 45%, though 15% on either side is acceptable. If you do find your humidity level too low, you can normalize it with an inexpensive device called a humidifier. These are devices that suffuse the air with moisture and raise the humidity level. Just set it up to run and soon your rooms will have the freshness of an oasis.

Sadie "The Goat" Farrell – The Queen of the Waterfront

Volume 3 – Mobsters – Farrell, Sadie “The Goat” – The Queen of the Waterfront

She was not as vicious with her claws as the Dead Rabbits’ Hellcat Maggie. Nor as big and strong as an Amazon riverfront bouncer named Gallus Mag. But Sadie “The Goat” Farrell made more money than both women combined when she was the “Queen of the New York Waterfront.”

Sadie Farrell was born and raised in the slums of the Fourth Ward near the East River. As a young girl she hung around with street hustlers and thieves. Slight of built, but mean and vicious, Sadie usually worked the streets around the docks in concert with a male companion, who gave her the muscle backup she needed. When a mark emerged drunk from one of the local dives, Sadie would take a running start, then ram the top of her head into the victim’s stomach.

This was a dangerous maneuver, since sometimes the person delivering the headbutt does more damage to themselves than to the intended victim. But Sadie was a pro, and she made sure only the top of her head made contact with the victim’s gut, and not sensitive areas like her nose and forehead. The headbutt stopped the victim in his tracks, and as soon as he turned his attention to Sadie, her male companion used a slingshot to propel a rock to the side of the victim’s head. If that didn’t work, a bat or a sap always did the trick. Then Sadie and her partner would take everything of value from the unconscious mark, even his shirt, pants and shoes. This was small-time work for Sadie, but it still puffed up her reputation on the East Side docks.

One day, Sadie made the mistake of having one too many belts in the Hole-in-the-Wall bar on Dover Street, just two blocks from the East River. The bouncer at the Hole-in-the-Wall was a six-foot female creature from England named Gallus Mag. Mag patrolled the bar with a small bat strapped to her wrist, which she was not reticent to use on unruly customers. If after a few whacks on the head the drunk was still feisty, Mag would then wrap him in a headlock, then bite off one of his ears, before she flung him out the front door. The ear would then go into a jug of alcohol, which Mag proudly displayed behind the bar. The jars filled with ears behind the bar was called “Gallus Mag’s Trophy Case.”

Sadie being Irish and Mag being from England was an accident waiting to happen. It’s not certain who started the slurs first, but it’s a good bet it was Sadie, and that was not a smart thing to do. Mag, who was twice Sadie’s size, bopped Sadie on the head a few times with the bat, but Sadie still flailed away at Mag with a vengeance.

Another not a smart thing to do.

Mag enveloped Sadie’s head with her massive arms, and in a flash, one of Sadie’s ears had been detached from the side of her head. Mag deposited Sadie on her rump on Dover Street, then deposited Sadie’s ear in an alcohol-filled jug, and proudly displayed it behind the bar. Mag even scripted on the jug, “Sadie the Goat’s Ear.”

Disgraced and disheartened, Sadie took her show on the road and wound up on the West Side docks, clear around to other side of Manhattan from her former haunts. One day while wandering around trying to figure out how to make a score, Sadie witnessed members of the Charlton Street Gang unsuccessfully attempting to board a small sloop anchored in the middle of the North River (now called the Hudson River). The Charlton Street Gang was so inept and disorganized, the ship’s crew had no trouble beating them back and beating them up in the process. Sadie figured with her expert direction, the gang would do much better than before if she were the boss. So Sadie helped the gang members lick their wounds, and then convinced them with her brains and their brawn, they could make a very successful team indeed.

A few days later, with Sadie leading the gang, they were able to hijack a much larger sloop, and with the “Jolly Roger” (skull and crossbones) flying from the masthead, Captain Sadie led the gang up and down the North and Harlem Rivers, up to Poughkeepsie and beyond. They raided small villages; robbing poor people’s farm houses and the riverside mansion of the rich. Because ocean liners and major shipping vessels were so well-protected, Sadie and her crew concentrated on raiding smaller up-river merchant ships instead.

Sadie was so into her “River Pirate” routine, she began reading voraciously on pirate history and pirate lore. After discovering that pirates had once kidnapped Julius Caesar, she ordered her crew to go on a kidnapping spree. In the spirit of old pirate traditions, some true, some contrived, Sadie even forced several members of her own gang to walk the plank if they did not do exactly as she demanded.

For several months, Sadie and her crew were extremely successful in their endeavors. They stashed their booty in several hiding places, until they could dispose of it for cold, hard cash, though the various fences along the North and East Rivers. One of these fences was Marm Mandelbaum, who through her store on Clinton Street, was said to be the largest fence on the entire east coast of America.

But all good things must come to an end.

After several home owners were murdered by Sadie and Charlton Street Gang, the upstate Hudson Valley residents banded together and formed a force of resistance. The farm folk ambushed the Charlton Street Gang as it came ashore, and police patrolling New York’s harbor stopped them from pillaging the small merchant ships on the North River. Soon, so many gang member were killed, Sadie was forced to abandon her pirating ways. What was left of the Charlton Street Gang went back to the West Side docks, and soon they completely disbanded.

Sadie decided to return to her old haunts in the Fourth Ward, where she was now hailed as the “Queen of the Waterfront.” With the cash she had earned from her pirating days, Sadie opened up her own gin mill.

Soon after Sadie’s return to the East Side docks, the Hole-in-the-Wall bar was the site of seven murders in just two months. As a result, the New York City police shut down the Hole-in-the-Wall bar for good. But before last call at the Hole-in-the-Wall, Sadie visited Gallus Mag. The two girls made up, and Mag was so gracious, she went behind the bar, retrieved Sadie’s pickled ear, and returned it to its rightful owner.

Sadie wore her severed ear in a locket around her neck for the rest of her life.

Treatment Options for Mantle Cell Lymphoma

A rare form of the Non-Hodgkin disease is the Mantle cell lymphoma. This disease is quite dangerous because its tumor grows very fast and ends up affecting most of the organs.
Generally, people are diagnosed with mantle cell lymphoma only when the disease has affected more organs and so, treating them is a little bit difficult because several areas of the body must be treated in the same time. The most indicated treatment in this case is chemotherapy.

Chemotherapy tries to stop cancerous cells from growing or dividing. There can be used oral drugs or drugs injected into the vein or muscle that will reach the cancer cells by entering the bloodstream, and is called systemic chemotherapy. In mantle cell lymphoma doctors use a combination of four drugs administered in a single day and then repeated every 3 weeks for 6 times.

In most of the cases, mantle cell lymphoma therapy is not useful and even if the response to the treatment seemed to be good, the disease comes back very often. In preventing this, doctors have used different drug combinations and the most successful was one treatment used in leukemia too. This treatment is unbearable for many of the patients due to its side effects, and doctors will not recommend this drug combination if they feel that the patient will not tolerate the treatment.

In most cases, after chemotherapy is done, stem cells previously taken from the patient’s blood or bone marrow or from a donor will be thawed and replaced through an infusion, in order to restore the body’s blood cells destroyed by the chemotherapy.

Biological therapy has proved to be useful in treating many forms of lymphoma, and it uses monoclonal antibodies. These antibodies are made from an immune system cell and are designed to seek and destroy all the substances that can help cancer cells to grow and develop. One of the monoclonal antibodies used in treating Non-Hodgkin lymphoma is Rituximab. This antibody could be used in treating mantle cell lymphoma too.

There have been developed some new drugs but they are still under tests in clinical trials. Bortezomib is one of them and using it seems to lead to the death of cancer cells.

Using radiation therapy proved to be inefficient because it did not lead to a remarkably extinction of the cancer cells and it only weakened the human organism.

Until now there is no cure for this disease and no certain effective treatment. In order to discover a useful therapy, doctors will encourage you to join a clinical trial and help them improve the medical treatment of this terrible disease.

The Ancient Practice of Sun Gazing

Sun energy is the source that powers the brain. It enters the body through the elements of air, water, fire, and earth. Sunlight enters and leaves the human body most easily and directly through the human eye, provided it isn’t filtered out by colored lenses. The eyes are the grand portals through which sunlight enters the body.

Sun gazing is an ancient practice that can induce healing of body and mind.

The eyes are very complex organs, consisting of 5 billion parts intricately designed and functioning in unity. The primary function of the eye is light-dark perception. Even the most basic, simplest ‘eyes’, such as those belonging to unicellular organisms have no other function but to detect whether the surroundings are light or dark in order to maintain the circadian rhythms.

Acting as a photo lens, the human eye is able to break down the entire spectrum of sunlight into the different color rays – a sort of ocular prism. In a camera, the various rays of light react with the chemicals of the film and encode the pictures you take accordingly. Likewise, upon entering the pineal gland in the brain, the different light rays are chemically encoded in the brain and passed on to the organs and systems in the body.

The vital organs of the body are dependent on specific colors of the light spectrum. For kidney cells to function properly, for example, they require red light. Heart cells need yellow light, and liver cells require green light. Light deficiencies in any of the organs and systems of the body can lead to disease. Regular sun gazing can help restore balance and efficiency to all cells in the body.

The pineal gland is one of the most researched glands of the body. Scientists have established that bright light stimulates the production of serotonin and melatonin in the pineal, but there are other neurochemicals produced by the pineal that have more profound and complex effects apart from regulation of moods, sleep, reproductive function and body temperature.

Scientists at the University of Pennsylvania, including Dr. George C. Brenarr, a leading authority on the pineal gland, observed the sun yogi HRM (Hira Ratan Manek) for 130 days in 2002. They found that his pineal exhibited growth and reactivation. The average size of the pineal is 6×6 mm, but in HRM’s case it was 8×11 mm.

Scientists refer to the pineal gland as the ‘atrophied third eye’. Indeed, it, along with the pituitary, is the third eye chakra or energy center, better referred to as dormant rather than atrophied. According to Max Heindel’s Rosicrucian writings, in the distant past, man was in touch with the inner worlds through an activated pineal and pituitary gland. Considered the most powerful and highest source of ethereal energy available to humans, the third eye has always been important in initiating psychic powers (clairvoyance and seeing auras etc).

To activate the ‘third eye’ and perceive higher dimensions, the pineal and the pituitary must vibrate in unison, which is achieved through meditation or sun gazing. When a correct relationship is established between the personality operating through the pituitary, and the soul operating through the pineal, a magnetic field is created. The pineal can generate its own magnetic field because it contains magnetite. This field can interact with the earth’s magnetic field. The solar wind at dawn, charging the earth’s magnetic field, stimulates the pineal gland. This is why many spiritual teachings claim that the period between 4 and 6 am is the best time to meditate and why sunrise is the best time to sun gaze. At these times, the pineal stimulates the pituitary to secrete Human Growth Hormone. That is why sun gazers often experience rapid nail and hair growth, restoration of hair color, and general rejuvenation. Cleopatra used to place a magnet on her forehead to stimulate the pituitary to restore her youth and good looks. She did not know she already had a magnet in her head.

The technique of sun gazing demands no more than time and attention, and is very simple. One should gaze at the sun only in the morning or evening hours, about one hour or less after sunrise or before sunset. Look at the rising or setting sun once a day. On the first day, look at the sun in a relaxed manner for a maximum of 10 seconds. On the second day, look at it for 20 seconds, adding about ten seconds every succeeding day. After ten continuous days of sun gazing you will be looking at the sun for about 100 seconds. The eyes can blink or flicker and don’t need to be steady. To receive the main benefits of sun gazing, you need to increase the duration in the above manner until you reach three months. This brings you up to the length of 15 minutes of gazing at a time.

At this stage, the sun energy of the sun’s rays passing through the human eye will be charging the hypothalamus tract – the pathway behind the retina leading to the human brain. As the brain increasingly receives extra power through this pathway, you will find a drastic reduction of mental tension and worries. With access to this additional source of energy, you are likely to develop a more positive mindset and increased self-confidence. If you suffer from anxieties and depression, you will find that these go away. Sadness and depression are known to increase with reduced or lack of exposure to sunlight. With fewer worries and fears, your brain may use the saved and additionally supplied energy for healing and improvement of mental and physical wellbeing.

One of the most frequently reported benefits of regular sun gazing is improvement of eyesight.

Life giving, golden rayed, the eternal watchful eye, called ‘the beginning’ and ‘the ultimate truth’ by wisdom, the Sun is also the earliest acknowledged doctor of mankind. We have turned to him for healing since ages – since our very beginnings.

Different Types of Eye Surgery and Their Effectiveness

The use of computer technology in medical science has been extending during recent years. Laser eye surgery has become more and more popular, while non-laser procedures have also improved. Although many people think that LASIK is the only type of refractive surgery, there are in fact various types of eye surgery for correcting vision.

Laser Eye Surgery

These procedures involve the use of a laser to reshape the cornea in order to improve the eye’s ability to focus. There are several types of laser eye surgery, such as LASIK, LASEK, Intralense or PRK.

Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis (LASIK)

This procedure is used to treat astigmatism, nearsightedness and farsightedness. The surgeon removes a flap through the outer and middle layer of the cornea and then uses an excimer laser to remove tissue under the flap. This type of eye surgery usually takes about one minute per eye.

Laser Epithelial Keratomileusis (LASEK)

LASEK is very similar to LASIK, except for the fact that the flap is cut only from the outer layer of the cornea (epithelium). It is used mostly for patients with thin corneas, who are not eligible for LASIK. It is a newer procedure with a few drawbacks, such as more discomfort and slightly longer healing period.

IntraLense

This type of eye surgery is also very similar to LASIK, except that the surgeon uses an extra laser instead of a blade to create the flap in the outer layers.

Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK)

This procedure is used to treat astigmatism, nearsightedness and mild to moderate farsightedness. A laser is used to remove tissue from the outer layer of the cornea and correct vision. The surgeon doesn’t cut any flap in the cornea. The surgery usually lasts less than a minute.

Non-laser Eye Surgery

These surgical procedures involve improving vision by cutting into the surface of the eye, reshaping the cornea or using low heat radio waves. Astigmatic keratotomy incisions, intraocular lenses and implantable contact lenses are among the most common non-laser eye surgery procedures.

Astigmatic Keratotomy Incisions

This procedure is used to correct mild astigmatism. Bulgy areas of the cornea are reshaped by using a blade. Many patients undergo such a treatment in conjunction with other types of eye surgery. However, it is now less frequently used than laser eye surgery procedures, such as PRK or LASIK.

Implantable Contact Lenses

These are implantation devices used to treat severe farsightedness and nearsightedness. The lens is placed behind the iris, in front of the natural lens of the eye. Unlike normal contact lenses, you can’t feel them and they don’t need maintenance. The procedure can take from 6 to 20 minutes.

Intraocular Lenses (IOLs)

This type of eye surgery has been around for many decades now and the lenses are usually implanted during a cataract surgery to replace the natural lens of the eye. Years ago, these lenses used to help only with distance vision and patients needed to wear glasses for close vision. However, the method has been improved and now helps with close and intermediate vision as well.

While many surgeons prefer laser procedures and the newest technologies, some still advise a small number of patients to choose a non-laser surgery instead. All eye surgery procedures involve certain risks and have possible side effects, so it is best to consult a physician to fill you in with all the details about each treatment.

Facts About the Four Major Feng Shui House Types

Classical feng shui students learn about the four major house types within the first few days of instruction. These houses are described in broad brush strokes. Two of the four are supportive for health and relationships and two are not. Two of the four are supportive for financial luck and the other two are not. But to place too much emphasis on these four categories of house types, is like judging a book by its cover or a painting by its frame.

In the 20th century, these four house types were given catchy descriptions, translated from more non-literal Chinese terms, whereby we have one house type that is now labeled “good for people/good for money” (aka Wang Shan Wang Shui). The exact opposite house type is referred to as “Reversed,” as in the reverse of the best house. Then there are the two mixed house types, with one being deemed “good for people/bad for money (Double Sitting) and the other one “good for money/bad for people” (Double Facing.)

In reality, we know that life is more complicated, and yet we all know someone who is wealthy, but unhealthy or wealthy but very unhappy. We also know of people who are strong physically and mentally, with loving family members and close friendships, but maybe chronic financial struggles.

So it is easy to assume that these four major house “personalities” cast their influence on the occupants to create these real discrepancies. In studying Xuan Kong Fei Xing, there are actually 144 different house charts, but these 144 “flying star charts” can all be grouped into the four major categories. These categories are determined based on when a house was built and what direction it is sitting or facing, so it is not like seeing a house with certain physical characteristics which would be so obvious.

One of the most frustrating things I encounter frequently is a prospective client who wants me to assist them in house hunting and they have heard about this “good for people/good for money” house and they only want to live in that house type and no others. This is a very myopic way to go house hunting since what qualifies as good Feng Shui overall is based on a lot of criteria which is not determined based solely on the house’s orientation or year built. In fact, there are so many instances when a floor plan lay-out is flawed, that it seriously undercuts or over-rides the nature of the so-called best house of these four major categories.

For example, I had one client whose house was deemed this “Wang Shan Wang Shui” (good for people/good for money house type.) Meanwhile, the actual floor plan demonstrated that the bedrooms, entrance and home office were in the worst parts of the house. To backtrack a little, it should be understood that no house on the planet has all inherently positive areas. On average, there are about four of the total eight basic directional zones in any structure that are considered better or worse than the others. Here is a specific example: For a house which was built in 1985 and facing south between 160-170 degrees, the best locations (in the flying star chart) will be in the northwest, north, northeast and east sectors. The other directions (west, southwest, southeast and south) are not as inherently positive in the current times for that particular house type.

So at this point, we have not even studied the floor plan. We are just speculating about the most positive influences for that one house, being one of the 144 total flying star charts to consider.

So with this house in mind which was supposed to be so good, that client had perpetual financial problems, marital woes, problems with his children, legal issues, kidney problems for both husband and wife, as well as a serious burglary where they lost valuables totaling $100,000.00. So, I would not call that a “good for people/good for money” house. In contrast, I have a client who enjoys world-wide fame as an actor in TV and film and yet he lives in a “Reversed” house type, which is supposed to be “bad for people and bad for money.” He has a happy home life and does quite well in his career which has spanned more than 30 years. So, how is that possible? Well, aside from destiny which over rides Feng Shui, this man happens to naturally dwell in the most positive parts of his house instead of the most negative parts. His bedroom and office and convenient back door entrance totally support his good fortune. This is why I sometimes beg my clients to provide me with a floor plan when they are house hunting. So many people get the mistaken impression that all I need is an address, to look up the year built and compass reading on the internet. Without a floor plan to study, about 80% of the information is missing or based on guesstimates.

So, now I hope I have well established that the four major house types cannot and do not predict exactly what kind of fortune or misfortune the occupants may experience. The basic house type must be collaborated with the unique floor plan, and understanding of qi flow, the impact of the immediate exterior environment and even personal compatibility with the house based on the occupants’ birth data and occupation.

The lesser known fact about the four major houses styles still eludes many long time practitioners. And that important fact is that the four house types do not retain their status into perpetuity. Many practitioners assume “once a Reversed house, always a Reversed house.” And they assume the same fate for the other three house types. But this is actually, technically not so. What established the four major house types to begin with is based on criteria relevant to the Period in which a house was built. Once a house surpasses its own Construction Period, it relinquishes its title as one of the four major house types.

For example, Period 5 was from 1944 through 1963. For houses built during that 20 year Era, they are referred to as Period 5 houses. However, they are no longer the Wang Shan Wang Shui, Reversed, Double Sitting or Double Facing house type that they originally were. In each 20 Year Era, there are sixteen different house types based just on orientation and then they get further grouped into the four major house types. However, after 1964, those Period 5 houses ceased to be defined by those definitions. In Period 8, which is from 2004 through 2023, we have houses built during this time frame which are correctly classified as one of the four house types, but those terms will end in 2024 when Period 9 begins. At that point in time, only Period 9 houses will qualify as one of the four major house types. Houses from all other Periods are exempt. We have 9 Periods that each last for 20 years. This means that most houses are not one of the four major house types, even though it sounds like a category that all would fall into.

I was part of a large group of practitioners who were not initially taught all the ramifications of these house classifications. Old habits die hard and it may be a long time before the teachings are standardized to the point where every classical school or individual teacher will have this more nuanced and technically correct understanding of the four major house types, their duration, and their overall influence. Until then, many people miss out on buying or leasing great houses because they have a kind of Feng Shui-tunnel vision, as if the so-called “Wang Shan Wang Shui” house is the be all- end all of house types to seek out. Not so. This might be like a person feeling they can only function and be happy in one city in the world. We know that can’t possibly be true, but this is just one of many examples where people judge properties based on too little information.

Eye Ailments Can Be Treated With Magnetic Therapy

Even though most of the eye problems are not painful, suffering from eye ailments is one of the worst conditions you can have. This is mainly because eyes are important organs which help you orient in the world. Also, they are highly useful when wanting to get a job and have an active social life. This is why it is necessary to keep your eyesight in good function.

There are many treatments which can effectively deal with eye ailments. Yet, finding one which is not damaging for the other organs and which is still very powerful in treating your ailment can be quite a challenge. If you have not yet found a treatment which can make your eye ailments go away, why not try an alternative treatment: magnetic therapy.

Years of practice have proved that magnetic therapy is quite effective in treating eye problems. Moreover, the different appliances used in this type of treatment offer a complete healing method, which enables you to regain your sight.

The first appliance which is used in order to treat eye ailments is the low power magnet. The application of lower power magnets significantly improves eyesight and treats any possible ailment. Ten or fifteen minutes are enough for noticing great improvements in the way you see things. Yet, make sure that you do not use high or medium power magnets on your eyes, as they can make more damage than help your eyes recover.

The second option you have in order to improve your eyesight is to wash your eyes daily with magnetic water. This will not only make you see better, but it will also remove the tiredness of your eyes.

Eye ailments, such as myopia and hypermetropia, cataract, glaucoma, but also conjunctivitis can be treated by using these two methods. Thus, if you feel that your eyes are tired, if you no longer see things well or if you suffer from one of the above mentioned diseases, try magnetic therapy. You will see that your ailment will be alleviated significantly from the first applications and in time they will be totally cured.

I understand thyroid drama. Modern medicine was unable to address my Graves’ and then Hashimoto’s Disease issues. For many years I did a lot of trial and error testing until I came up with my ‘Healthy Thyroid Diet’ plan.

There are foods you need to remove from your diet and there are foods that you should add to your daily food intake. This isn’t a diet in the sense that you are trying to lose weight but a habit of healthy eating.

Not everyone will agree that there is a connection between diet and a healthy thyroid. I challenge you to give it a try for a few weeks and monitor any changes in how you feel.

One more thing before proceeding, it is import to understand that most (90%) of hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism result from autoimmune issues. This means that your immune system is attacking your thyroid..

One of the first issues I delve into with clients is their current diet.

FOOD INTOLERANCES

Do you see “gluten-free”, “dairy-free” etc popping up at the health stores today? This is because many people get off the “big five”; gluten, dairy, corn, eggs and soy and experience significant changes. To find the culprits, I always start off with an Elimination Diet and this produces clear, unbiased results. You can also get a food intolerance test (not allergy, it’s different) done but they are far from accurate. Gluten is an infamous food if you have a thyroid condition and eliminating it is key. However, often times, you would need to cut out more than just gluten.

FIX YOUR DIGESTIVE TRACK (aka GUT)

As mentioned above, most thyroid conditions are auto-immune diseases. There are tons of lymphocytes and other immune cells in the gut, which protect the body from viruses, bacteria, and other invaders. This is why most people with thyroid conditions also experience frequent bloating, gas, constipation or diarrhea. A diet change will help your gut tremendously. “All disease begins in the gut”, said Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine and I’m not sure why this is not taught in school today.

REDUCE TOXICITY

from additives, preservatives, artificial sweeteners (!), excessive sodium, trans-fats as well as toxins hiding around your house. Water toxicity is HUGE in thyroid conditions; we add fluoride in the US that is now linked to slowing down the thyroid; fluoride is believed to be leaching on to the thyroid cells inhibiting the uptake of iodine, hence the production of the thyroid hormone (T4).

DETOX

Your liver and your gut as this is where the T4 hormone (inactive hormone) gets converted to T3, the active hormone which is actually the one that powers us up. Most of our body cells need T3, not just T4. If you are taking Synthroid, you are taking a synthetic version of T4 that still needs to be converted to T3. If you have a sluggish liver and gut, you won’t convert properly. Look into doing a yearly, bi-yearly detox by fasting, juicing, etc to give your body a break.

ADDRESS STRESS and ADRENAL FATIGUE

This is huge topic, especially with women. You won’t be able to fix your thyroid without fixing the adrenals. The adrenals are also part of the endocrine system and fire up when you are stressed out. I recommend looking up adrenal fatigue symptoms to see if you have them. De-stressing by working with a therapist, life coach, getting into meditation, breathing, positive thinking; whatever work for you – is key.

REMOVE GOITROUS FOOD

if you suffer from hypothyroidism. Goiter is a substance that slows down the thyroid. It is found in bok choy, broccoli, Brussels’ sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, mustard greens, radishes, soy, soy milk, soy lecithin (often used as a filler in vegetarian food) and tofu. Cooking them reduces their goitrous properties but you should still limit them in the recovery phase.

Signs and Symptoms of Chronic Bronchitis

Chronic bronchitis is characterized by the swelling or inflammation of the airways or bronchi present in the upper respiratory system. This condition is frequently accompanied by the overproduction of mucus. This can manifest with various symptoms, and is usually hard to confirm diagnostically for the reason that the physical manifestations are so similar to other illnesses that involve the respiratory system in general and the lungs in particular. At present, 1 in 20 Americans currently suffers from chronic bronchitis. Though the documented cases have been slowly dropping since the 1970s, the number of individuals afflicted with chronic bronchitis is still alarming as it is more often than not fatal. The following are some frequently occurring signs and symptoms of chronic bronchitis:

Coughing – Cough set off by chronic bronchitis is commonly firstseen in the early hours of morning, soon after getting up from bed. The individual will most likely {cough|get a coughing attack) lasting up to several hours soon after waking up. As the illness further develops, this coughing will last for longer into the day, and in some cases will never go away.

Shortness of Breath – This symptom frequently occurs in the majority of individuals experiencing chronic bronchitis. This can possibly be aggravated by overworking or even slight activity. As the illness further develops this symptom may even be triggered by something as simple as covering a small distance, or climbing down some stairs.

Respiratory Infections – Chronic bronchitis is more often than not the causative factor of respiratory infections. Since a surplus of mucus is produced by the body in patients with respiratory infections, this this results in the upper respiratory system becoming very moist and warm. This can easily be some sort of hotbed for infection, and causes infections that are very tough to cure once they are contracted.

Fatigue – Fatigue or extreme exhaustion is commonly felt by people with chronic bronchitis. These patients tire easily just after getting up in the morning, or at other random hours during the day. This is owing to the fact that the amount of oxygen in their serum is exceedingly reduced compared to those who don’t have chronic bronchitis.

Swelling of the Legs and Ankles – Because chronic bronchitis can usually lead to more complications, due to a lack of oxygen present in the blood, it may cause the skin to turn blue or cause the extremities to swell in the later stages of chronic bronchitis. Swollen legs are also a symptom of congestive heart failure, thus people experiencing this symptom should visit a doctor right away.

What Skills Do You Need to Work in an Airport?

So you’re interested in joining the aviation industry? First thing to remember is the industry is so vast there’s almost certainly a role which fits your skills set and given the right guidance, you’ll be able to find the right vacancy for you. If you want to read a little bit about the sort of vacancies in the industry, try having a look at some other articles online – there are plenty.

In general the airline industry requires the same caliber of employee as any other industry. For example a hard-working, diligent and conscientious character is an absolute requirement. Furthermore an ambitious and proactive employee is very desirable, whatever industry you might look in to.

With specific regard for the aviation industry, some things will certainly make your application much more desirable.

The industry is an international one. While the most spoken international language (amongst airlines) is English, there are certainly occasions that a confident grasp of a foreign language could work in your favor. This it the case across the board, not just in the obvious positions like pilot, desk attendant or cabin crew.

The primary role of a number of airport employees is to make the experience for customers as comfortable and safe as possible. Previous experience in first aid and customer services might help you to stand out when applying for positions such as flight attendant, given the nature of the role and the roles and responsibilities of the job.

With so many different jobs available, there isn’t an obvious level of qualifications necessary to have a good chance getting a job in the aviation industry. Of course (as with any job application) the better your academic performance in relevant subjects the better your chances of impressing the employer. At degree level, there are a number of degrees which will help your application but any degree which is gained at a good standard will be very beneficial.

A character which reacts well to pressure and time-constraints is likely to do well in the industry: it is often fast paced, dynamic and exciting. There are of course ‘behind the scenes’ roles which are relatively less time-critical. For example a call-centre attendant will be under time-constraints less often than a flight attendant or flight manager.

I have some experience in the aviation industry, hence this article. I hope it has gone some way to guiding you towards the right career for you and giving you an idea what it might involve and require of you.

Usage of CPF Medisave in Malaysia Hospitals and Medical Centers

Less than 1 year since our initial posting, the Singapore Government acted fast and in Feb 2010, the Ministry of Health (MOH) declared officially that Singaporeans will be able to use CPF Medisave for payment in 12 hospitals/medical centers in Malaysia starting 1st March 2010. The nearest of these 12 hospitals/medical centers to Singapore is the Regency Specialist Hospital located in Johor Bahru (Regency is just an hour’s drive from Singapore or just 25 minutes away from the Johor Bahru CIQ).

With the medical bills in Malaysian hospitals expected to be some 20%-35% cheaper compared to Singapore hospitals, this is good news for Singapore citizens who now have an alternative in managing escalating health care costs. To top it up, these 12 hospitals and medical centers in Malaysia are actually owned by 2 health care group in Singapore: Health Management International (HMI) and Parkway Holdings. Expect a certain standard of medical health-care and facilities to be provided.

For example, Regency’s patient care facilities and medical equipment are comparable to Singapore hospitals. It has the latest state of the art medical and diagnostic equipment including a 64 multi-slice Computerized Tomographic (“CT”) Scanner and 1.5 Tesla Magnetic Resonance Imager (“MRI”) from General Electric (“GE”). In addition, its new Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory (“Cath Lab”) adds to the comprehensive range of cardiac care treatments for those experiencing acute coronary symptoms in need of cardiac catheterization, angioplasty, stent, balloon or pacemaker implantation.

The listing below shows the 12 medical centers and hospitals currently approved by the Ministry of Health for usage of CPF Medisave.

Holidays in Malaysia – My Experience

Vibrant city breaks, trekking deep the jungles of Borneo looking for Orang Utans, releasing Turtle Hatchlings back into the natural habitat, playing a round or two of golf, exploring the wonders of the Ocean or simply soaking up the sun on a sandy beach overlooking Crystal azure waters. Holidays in Malaysia really do offer fantastic scope for variety and has something to offer for everyone.

I have been to Malaysia many times now and I never grow tired of this place.

During my last trip to Malaysia I visited Kuala Lumpur (of course), Penang, Langkawi and Borneo

In Kuala Lumpur I stayed at the Berjaya Times Square Hotel and can highly recommend it. It’s classed as a 5 Star property however I would probably rate it as a very good 4 star. Suite was very spacious and very well priced and it offered an excellent location, within 3 minutes walk to Bukit Bintan area. I can recommend a visit to the Petronas Towers, Dinner at KL Tower and a visit to Chinatown. There is a lot more to do in and around Kuala Lumpur such as a trip to Batu Caves, and to see the Fireflies but generally 2-3 days is enough to get a good feel for the place and there is only so much you can do without stretching your time too much.

Penang is a great place but many people treat it as a Beach Holiday however I would personally recommend you stay in the Capital of Georgetown and treat it as a City Break before moving onto somewhere like Langkawi. Langkawi is just a short flight or Ferry transfer from Penang and in my opinion offers a far superior beach experience. Sights in Georgetown, Penang would be Cheong Fatze Mansion, a trishaw ride around Little India and a trip to the Fruit, Spice and Butterfly farms.

Langkawi is one of my favourite places in Malaysia. It had a very relaxed atmosphere and is an ideal place to getaway from it all for a while. It also benefits from being duty free so is a little cheaper than the other destinations. Good excursions here are the Cable Car Ride, a Mangrove forest boat trip and an Island hopping trip to the ‘Island of the Pregnant Lady’ so named because it looks like a pregnant lady laying down from a distance. There are numerous Hotels to choose from in Langkawi ranging from 3 Star Mutiara Burau Bay Resort to the luxurious Datai Hotel.

Borneo is in my top 2 favourite places in the World. I started my trip with a stay at the Shangri La Tanjung Aru Resort close to Kota Kinabalu Centre. Standards here are top notch although the beach is man made. This was not much of an issue as I was only here 1 night before I headed off on my Wildlife Tour.

After my overnight stay at the Shangri La Tanjung Aru Resort I headed off for my flight to Sandakan before transferring to Kinabatangan River. En-route I stopped at Gomontong Caves to witness where they harvest the Birds Nests for Birds Nest Soup. This place is filled with bugs and it is pretty difficult to avoid stepping on them so this is not for the faint hearted. To get to Gomontong you must walk through a forested area for around 15 minutes and I had my eyes peeled the whole time, hoping and praying I would see an Orang Utan. Alas it was not to be and I decided I was being way too optimistic expecting to seethe ‘Wildman of Borneo’ during my first encounter with the rainforest. Slightly disappointed but not too down I proceed to Kinabatangan River. It took around 1 hour by boat to reach my lodge from the Jetty and again my eyes were peeled. I checked in and we had a little time to relax before our first scheduled boat trip in search of Wildlife.

I’m not great at spending time on my own so I headed to the bar and got talking to an American couple who were finishing their round the world trip. They, along with a couple consisting of a German man and a French woman were to be my company for the 2 nights I was there and we all seemed to get on very well. After a drink or two we headed off down Kinabatangan and were fortunate enough to see the peculiar Proboscus Monkey and a Crocodile along with many birds but still no Orang Utan. In the afternoon we pretty much repeated this process albeit in a different direction and we were told there had been sightings of Pygmy Elephants but we could not find them.

The next morning we headed to an area called Ox Bow Lake and we set off on a trek through the Jungle. I felt like I was on cloud nine. I have always dreamed of going to Borneo as I am really into Wildlife and I felt like I was on a Wildlife Documentary expedition as we trekked through the Jungle. My guide was giving out calls to try and attract the Orang Utans, although he did tell me this was considered confrontational to the Orang Utans so I wasn’t quite sure how I felt about this. I decided that if my only chance of seeing the Wildman of Borneo in its natural environment was to end up in a fight with one then so be it!! We found an Orang Utan Nest but still no Orang Utan. On the way back to the boat my guide had a conversation with a brightly coloured bird. He whistled a tune and the Bird was replying, it was quite amusing to witness.

After Dinner I had planned to do a night walk with my Guide and we set off and I noticed we were headed in a different direction to everyone else. I asked where we were going and the guides response was ‘that way is to the pre-planned walk, that is for wimps, I like to make my own trek’. Excellent!!! We headed off, machetes in hand as Terence hacked a route for us through the thick vegetation. We had seen nothing other than insects and a Deer when we reached a river blocking our path. ‘Hmm’ Terence said, it seems our path is being blocked, we may have to go back’. He checked his watch and stated ‘too early to go back’ and ploughed on through the river. I was Knee deep into the river, pitch black except for the small amount of light coming from my torch. Some may not have been too impressed but I could not be happier. A real experience, what I had been dreaming of for years and to top things off I was being paid to do this.

The following morning I woke still thinking of my previous nights experience and although I had been totally blown away by my tour so far, there was still something missing. I had still not seen the elusive Orang Utan in its natural habitat. We had one more Boat ride before we had to set off and I convinced myself we would see one. We had reached the end point of our journey and it was now time to head back to the Resort to collect our bags and leave for the airport. I kept my head down, bitterly disappointed that I had not seen the one thing I had hoped to see when all of a sudden I heard a shout from my Guide, he had not failed me. He spotted an Orang Utan in a nearby tree. The captain pulled the boat up to the river bank and my guide jumped out of the boat to get closer. I concluded at this point that he was in fact a little bit crazy but in my eyes he was now my hero. The Orang Utan threw excrement at him, a defence mechanism to deter unwanted visitors but in all fairness he put on quite a display for us. I could now go home a very happy man.

On my way home I stopped at Sepilok Rehabilitation Centre to view the Orphaned Orang Utans and I witnessed the morning feeding. It is an extremely enjoyable experience watching them play with each other and it is certainly worth the stop if you are in the area.

I spent my final night at the Shangri La Rasa Ria Resort, which is located around 45 minutes drive from Kota Kinabalu Centre. This Hotel benefits from a spectacular 3km stretch of white sandy beach and has its own nature reserve within its grounds where you can visit the orphaned Orang Utans and observe their rehabilitation ready to be returned back to the wild. This Reserve is working along side Sepilok Rehabilitation Centre and together they are doing a great job in preserving this fantastic creature.

This holiday in Malaysia was by far my best and I can thoroughly recommend Borneo to anyone who has a passion for Wildlife. I cannot thank my guide Terence enough for all he did to make my stay everything and more I had hoped for. Terence was actually born in the Jungle and to him it was a way of life, not a job to him and this shone through every minute I spent with him.
