Why We Got a Monitored Home Security System

Jimmy I. Valentino List

We wanted a 24-hour monitored home security system for our home. We wanted it for the fire, carbon monoxide and intrusion protection it offered. We also have pets that are home alone while we are away at work and school. It is nice to know that emergency services will automatically be sent if there ever is an emergency. I went to home-security.co to check out what was offered there. I really liked the low monthly monitoring fees provided by the security company. The installation of a basic system was very budget-friendly too. We should have done this a long time ago. What got me to do it now was a series of arsons in the neighborhood.

Finding a Great Contractor for Roof Repair

Jimmy I. Valentino List

A couple of days ago, there was a bad storm, and a limb fell out of a tree during that storm, and it hit the roof of my house. I did not realize it, until it rained last night, that when impacting the roof, the limb had put a hole in the roof. Last night I got a rude awakening to this fact, in the form of a leak in my house. It caused a bit of a mess before I noticed it, and now I am going to have to find roof repair in Brooklyn NY to get my roof repaired so that it will not leak anymore in the future.
The roof is only 5 years old, and so it is very unfortunate that it was damaged in this way, so soon after being put on my house. I never would have thought something like this would happen. I wonder if it is covered by my home owner’s insurance.

The House is Almost Ready Now

Jimmy I. Valentino List

We bought the place right at the start of the Spring and it took us all summer to get it in shape for us to move in. The first thing we had to do was to get a heating contractor in Bergen County NJ to come in and re do the entire heating and cooling system. It was not worth trying to fix the old one and of course it is a job that is best done before you go to working on the rest of the house. It is not like we did a top to bottom renovation of the house, but we did a very big amount of work and it cost a bit more than we were hoping that it would cost us before we got done. I did a lot of the work, or at least as much of it as my ability was up to doing. That is not as much as it could have been.
In fact if you are patient and time is not a big issue you can pretty much learn how to do just about any job while you are sitting at the desk looking at your computer. I must have watched a couple hundred youtube videos of Do it yourself projects. I spent a lot of time trying to figure out how to best use the time that I had. Of course I have a full time job and this is not something I was doing bright and early every morning of the week. I would do what I could at night, but there is a limit to the number of jobs that make any sense for you to in short bursts like that. Most of it was done on the weekends and a lot of times I hired guys to supervise me.

Not Sure if the House is Going to Work out for Us

Jimmy I. Valentino List

After talking to the home inspector Lee and I called up this plumber in Bergen County NJ and had him come to look at the place for us. He told us that the home inspector was pretty much right, the pipes on that house were bad and they had to be replaced. Obviously the idea would be to go in there and do a complete remodeling job while you were at it. You would be gutting a lot of the place and while you were at it you might as well do the entire thing. That would be the idea of course, but it would also be very expensive to do right after you put down the down payment on the house. It is a big deal to buy the house for the two of us, but buying the house and then turning around and spending a big pile of money fixing it up would be too much for us to manage. At least for now we could not do much of a job of it if we tried.
The truth is that we are not really sure what to do, because there is not going to be able to get a house that does not need some work done to it. We are just thinking that we need to be able to get it done gradually as we get the money to do it. They are going to be too expensive right away if we get this house and then get to work on it at the jump. Of course the location for it is about perfect, which is the only reason that we are still looking at it in spite of all of the other problems with the place. It is about half as far to my job.

Just Got Up to Seattle

Jimmy I. Valentino List

I just got to Seattle last night and the truth is I still have not finished taking my stuff out of the boxes. In fact I have to go find some cheap furniture some place today. I still have the trailer I rented and I am going to go buy a dresser and a couple of little things like that. I already spent the morning finding and setting up an appointment for high speed internet for Washington. I am living about a mile and a half from campus, but it is a really big campus. This is a much bigger effort to get around. Obviously you may as well not have a car while you are in college and I am going to have to round up a bike really quick if I want to enjoy getting around here. I was about ready to head up here when some one cut the chain on my bike and rode off on it. I left it in front of the Library at Cal State Northridge and some person must have stolen it in broad daylight.

Of course I reported it stolen and I had all the information engraved on the bike, but it is not like there is a good chance you are going to get it back. It was the second bike I had had stolen from me and I know this one girl who has lost three bikes. It was a big deal for her because she was a serious cyclist and she had a really nice Cannondale bike that was designed for all terrain use. My bike was just some piece of junk I bought second hand from another guy and for all I know it might have been stolen from some other student at Cal State before I had it.

Great Information About Choosing Dish Network

Jimmy I. Valentino List

I have never had a satellite television service before in my life, but it is something that I figure I should look into. I am going to switch my television provider in the near future, because I am unsatisfied with my current provider. They have annoyed me for years, but I have finally reached a breaking point, where I am not willing to go through them any longer. I want to look into dish network information because I know relatively little about the company, and the services that they offer.
For example, I do not even know if they offer Internet service. That would be some pretty helpful information, because I am likely going to be looking for a new Internet service provider as well, since I currently get television service, and my Internet connection, through the same provider. That is unfortunate, since I now despise the company, and do not want to have any further relationship with them.
I am going to focus on finding a new television provider first, because that is more important to me. I do not really care too much about my Internet connection, other than I know that I need to have one. It does not matter to me, to a degree, how fast it is, and rather I care more about the pricing. But I do care about the selection of channels that I get for my television. I like to watch a lot of television, and therefore, I want to be able to have access to a lot of different television channels. I am also curious to learn about any sort of incentives that Dish Network might have for signing up for their service. That could be what it takes to convince me to purchase their services for being my new television provider.

Why I Switched to Satellite TV

Jimmy I. Valentino List

I used to have cable television, but that came to an end when my bill was raised for the third time in five years. I don’t mind paying more when something genuinely goes up in price, but I knew that I could get the same channels for a lesser price simply by switching to satellite tv. The only reason why I hadn’t up to that point was because I do not like change. When I get something, I tend to stick with it for as long as I can. When it starts costing me money to do that though, I know that something does have to change because I am not going to get poorer so someone else can get richer.
I looked at my different options, and I realized that Direct TV was the best deal for me. I wanted to make sure that the equipment that I got was DVR ready, and I found out that it is even more advanced than what my cable company was offering me.

Best Direct TV Deals in New Jersey

Jimmy I. Valentino List

I moved up to New Jersey recently, to take up a job offer, and I think that it is going to make me a lot of money eventually. The starting pay isn’t really great, but I have the chance to move up a lot in the company, and that is what I intend to do. I just hope that I will be able to find some direct tv in new jersey deals, so that I can get television for a reasonable price. I can’t live without television. Well, that is kind of a dramatic thing to say, and it is also an exaggeration.
However, it is true that I watch a lot of television, and I watch it on a lot of different television stations.

Found a Really Great Apartment

Jimmy I. Valentino List

I did not realize how nice this apartment complex was when I moved in. I just got this place before I ever set foot in Dallas. It was just a place to stay temporarily until I got a permanent location. However it is pretty much perfect. I found out the other day when I was waiting for reliant energy in dallas to hook up my power. I had not really even gotten moved in yet and so I was carrying boxes in from the trailer I had parked out front. After a bit I realized that the place was simply crawling with very attractive young ladies. It seemed like it was some sort of dream for a bit, because a car pulled up and there were three cheerleaders in it.

My First Taste of Kopi Luwak Coffee

Jimmy I. Valentino List

When my friend invited me over for breakfast, I wasn’t sure what I was going to be eating or drinking. She has the most unique tastes of anyone I know. Some days, we may eat pancakes and drink juice. Other days, it could be a tofu omelette and freshly juiced celery. Everything is always really good though, which is why I never miss an opportunity to go there when invited. This time though, even I was a bit hesitant to try t he kopi luwak coffee she presented before our meal of homemade veggie mush.
I have had the mush before, and it is simply delicious. The coffee though, I had never even heard of it before this.

Reputable Senior Care Services in Brooklyn Area

Jimmy I. Valentino List

My mother is far too old to live on her own, but she simply will not listen to me when I ask her to move into a retirement home. She actually says that she would rather die than move, and I guess that I will not be able to convince her otherwise, even though I have tried really hard to do so. I want to find senior home care in brooklyn ny and I would like to start home care for my mother as soon as possible. She has not been feeling very well lately, and I know that she has lost some weight. She is 85 years old, and that is one of the reasons why I am so worried about her. It is pretty hard to live on your own, when you are that old. A lot of tasks that are trivial when you are younger, become much to difficult for you to accomplish. She has a bad back as well, and I am worried that she is going to seriously hurt herself by trying to do chores around her house.

Deciding on Internet Service After a Big Move

Jimmy I. Valentino List

I just moved to a new area and I am not very familiar with the businesses and services around here. Whenever you move there a lot of things that you need to think about, such as which company you are going to select for your Internet service provider. It’s one of the things I’d prefer not to have to think about because it’s easy to be confused by all of the options available out there. That’s exactly how I felt before I talked to my friend. He told me that I should check out centurylink because that’s what he uses. I always welcome recommendations, so I decided to find out what additional information I could gather.
I found this one particular website that lets you compare different Internet service providers based on a lot of different factors. I was able to see that this particular service provider was available in my area. In addition, they have a really good customer service record which is really important to me. I felt like my old service provider didn’t do much in the way of customer service. I was always on old for really long time, but that’s not the case with my new service provider. I’m able to get someone on the phone right away if I need them.
I’m really glad that my friend took the time to give me this very important recommendation, otherwise I never would have known what to choose. I plan on being the same way in the future. If someone asks me for a recommendation regarding utilities or anything else, I will be as helpful as I can. I believe that it’s not always a requirement to know the answer, but it’s very important to know how to find the answer. Using this website allowed me to find the perfect solution for my needs.

Best Power Companies Near Richmond, Texas

Jimmy I. Valentino List

I am going to need to get electricity hooked up at my new house in the near future. This is my first house, and I am pretty proud that I am finally a home owner. I am not sure how much electricity is going to cost in this part of the state, as I used to live a couple hundred miles from here. As such, I am trying to find power companies in richmond, tx that have good prices on their electricity. I would like to find the cheapest electricity around, but I am not sure how much that will cost.
I have been looking at some of my other utilities, and it seems like I am probably going to spend a lot to get television and internet hooked up in my house. Since that is the case, it would be nice to try to save some money on the electricity bill.

Moving Near by My Sister

Jimmy I. Valentino List

My sister turned twenty years old and just picked up and went to Florida. She had lived in Connecticut her entire life and did not know one person when she moved down to Florida and she started to look for apartments in tampa when she got there. She paid to live in a hotel for one week while she found a job and an apartment to live in. I knew that she was going to find a job working with horses since she worked on a farm her entire life. She found a great place to work and she found a house to rent instead of an apartment. The apartments were actually a lot more expensive to live in than the house that she found. I was happy for her that she found a house that had two bedrooms, a bathroom, and even a pool in the back yard for less than six hundred dollars a month.
I could not believe how much money she was paying for a house down there and I knew that it was a lot nicer than the weather that we get in Connecticut. I wanted to make sure that I would be able to take some time to go down there and look for a job but when I told the store manager where I worked that I was thinking of moving to Tampa that it was going to be very important to me to get a recommendation and she told me that I could get transferred down there without a problem. I was so happy to hear this that I was thinking that I was going to ask for the transfer and I was able to right away, I was so happy to know that I could move forward with my move and be happy.

Learning More About Investing in Real Estate

Jimmy I. Valentino List

Deciding what you want to invest in is a decision that needs to be planned carefully. Whether you are looking for something that is high risk with long term goals or moderate risks within a shorter time frame makes no difference. You have to be able to plan accordingly and understand that in most investments, there is going to be some kind of risk that you will have to take in account for. I decided to invest in real estate three years ago by buying property at the riverbank @ fernvale. I knew that development would soon take place and snatched up as much of the land that I could before they had a chance to even lay the first foundation into the ground. Real estate usually isn’t such a short term profit unless you are going to be flipping houses for a living but I took an opportunity that opened up and with a little luck, it worked out in my favor without a hitch.

A Change in Your Regular Service

Jimmy I. Valentino List

With the Internet becoming more and more accessible with the help of newer technologies and companies providing devices that easily access it, we are experiencing a surge in the different methods in which we connect our devices to the Internet. From cellular data, digital cable and even DSL, we are lucky enough to have a diverse selection at our whim. I found http://cheapdslinternetserviceproviders.com when I was looking for a new Internet Service Provider after I had a falling out with the company I had been with for over a year. After they were bought out and the prices were jacked up by the new company, I felt that I was getting the raw end of the deal.

Will Satellite Internet Be the One

Jimmy I. Valentino List

With so many different Internet providers offering their own brand of service, it can be an overwhelming experience when deciding what company or what sort of service you would like to sign up for. When I moved to this area, I was accustomed to only having Cable Internet rather than FiOS or DSL or even Satellite Internet. I had no idea that there were other ‘types’ of service that could offer a range of quality and speeds! I came across internetproviders.us/satellite-internet-providers/, a fantastic that was able to give me all kinds of insight into what I was looking for and what I would need based on my type of Internet use.

Solid Advice For Expectant Mothers (and Fathers)

Renee W. Pettit List

Don’t forget your partner or spouse when you’re pregnant. It’s very likely that he is as scared as you are. He needs some comfort as well. Spend lots of time doing things together, from long walks to watching movies. This time in your lives should be enjoyed before your new bundle of joy arrives.

If you are not ready to reveal your pregnancy but have to publicly abstain from alcohol there a few ways to disguise it. For example, if you are asked, explain that you are currently taking medication. Alternatively, a red juice within a wine glass could pass for red wine, or simply pretend that you are drinking your favorite alcoholic drink, but discard it when no one is looking. In some cases, you may need enlist the help of your partner to keep this secret. Getting enough sleep and rest during pregnancy is important to keep you healthy and to allow your baby to develop properly. Wear comfortable pajamas and keep your bedroom at a comfortable temperature, and that should help you get good, restful sleep. Be sure to get your name on the list right away for prenatal classes, since these groups tend to fill up quickly. You can do this as soon as your pregnancy is confirmed. Your doctor and your hospital are great resources for finding information about classes that are available to you. If the class you take doesn’t take you on a visit to the maternity ward, you may want to do this on your own. When pregnant, avoid drinking excessively before you go to sleep. It is important to drink enough fluids during the day to keep you hydrated. However, you should stop drinking about two hours before going to sleep. This will help you avoid frequent trips to the bathroom when you should be sleeping. During pregnancy, eat plenty of bland foods during your day. Keeping your stomach full with these foods will help ease nausea and vomiting. Avoid highly acidic or greasy foods which can roil your stomach and increase the occurrence of nausea and heartburn.

You will be doing well if you are positive about pregnancy and how you should go about it. Just try to keep stress to a minimum during the pregnancy process, even when you are trying out the techniques that you have learned here.

Have a good stretch before bed to relax your muscles and help you drift off to sleep. Leg muscles experience more strain during pregnancy, which can cause painful cramping. Stretching before sleeping makes the muscles relax and lowers the chance that they cramp during the night. Stretching can also make your entire body more relaxed which will allow you to sleep better.

Some negative issues with regards to pregnancy include aches, hormonal changes, stress and hunger. This article will help you resolve some of the issues that go hand-in-hand with pregnancy. The months of pregnancy are a possibly magical journey, especially if you apply the advice in the following paragraphs to your own situation.

When pregnant, keep an eye on your body’s intake of iron. If a pregnant woman does not take in enough iron, this result in poor consequences for the baby’s birth weight; it can also cause the mother to experience fatigue. Your prenatal vitamin should be fortified with the recommended amount of iron. During pregnancy, you may find you need to pay special attention to your teeth and gums. The hormones that increase during pregnancy might make your gums tend to swell and bleed from brushing and flossing. Try brushing with a softer toothbrush and continue flossing, but do it gentler.

This will keep your body’s weight under control and your health in check. Just remember not to go overboard. Exercising will not only lower the risk of miscarriage, but will also help reduce labor complications.

Avoid going to the store when you are hungry. Cravings for unhealthy foods will occur frequently during your pregnancy. It’s definitely okay to snack or indulge sometimes, but for the most part you should maintain a nutritious diet for the benefit of you and your unborn baby. By feeling full when you’re shopping, you’ll find that you don’t drool over all the tasty items available at the store.

How much I figure out – Muscle Building Advice That’s Scientifically Proven To Work

Renee W. Pettit List

Healthy fat sources are beneficial to the process of building muscles. These fats help increase testosterone levels in your body; in addition, they also help lubricate your joints. Avoid eating saturated fats and sugar that are counterproductive to muscle gain. Try to consume mostly non-saturated fats, as they are a healthier alternative for your heart. Do not overlook the importance of carbohydrates if you are attempting to build muscle. Carbs are vital for energy so that you can last an entire workout, and if you do not get enough, your body converts your stored protein for energy instead. Consume enough carbohydrates so that you can function and make it through all your workouts. If you are trying to build muscle, eat several small meals a day instead of three large ones. Your body will most effectively use the calories, vitamins, minerals, and protein sources that you put into it, if it only has to work on digesting a small amount at a time. This can lead to increased fuel for the muscles that you are working.

Proper warm-up exercises are essential when you are trying to increase your muscle mass. As you strengthen your muscles, you also place a heap of additional stress upon them that may increase the likelihood of injuries. Warming the muscles up prior to exerting them is a key factor in avoiding injury. Prior to doing heavy lifting, spend five to maybe ten minutes exercising lightly, followed by three or four warm-up light and intermediate sets.

Focus on form when you are new to muscle building activities. More weight will be used over a period of time, but if do not use the proper form, it will be even worse later. If you lift heavy weights with bad form, you could do more harm than good to your body, and you could even end up with some serious injuries.

When building additional muscle mass, be sure that your diet includes plenty of protein. Protein synthesis is the way in which your body stores protein. Muscles grow bigger by using this system. Fish, pork, beef, pork and chicken are foods that have a high amount of protein. Make sure you do not eliminate good fats when you are building muscle by lifting weights. There are a number of healthy fats that are essential to growing muscle. If your diet does not contain enough of these fats, then you will not get the muscle growth you are aiming for. Consuming plenty of healthy fats is also thought to help increase testosterone levels, which is essential to fast muscle growth. Pre-exhaust is a useful strategy you can use if a certain muscle group is giving up on you early and reducing the effectiveness of subsequent exercises. For example, before lats on the rows, your biceps might feel fatigued. The way to get around this is to isolate the problem by doing an exercise that targets the problem muscle group. In this case, you can isolate the lats by doing lat pulldowns. This causes the lats to be exhausted prior and when doing rows, the biceps should not limit you.

Watching your intake of calories is important, when trying to build muscle. There are good calories and bad calories, and you need to know the difference. When you do not make smart food choices in the number of calories you consume, you will not build muscle; instead, you are more likely to gain fat. Do not skip breakfast, especially when your goal is to increase muscle mass. Consume a high quality breakfast filled with protein and fiber to start the day properly. When you eat breakfast, your body begins to build muscle rather than burning it, plus you have more energy for your day. You must exercise great care when choosing how often to do your muscle building exercises. If you do too little in your workout, you won’t see much progress. However, it is important to not to push yourself too far either. If you work out too much, you risk stretching out your skin and leaving permanent marks.

This article probably gave you some good advice you can use to improve your overall health. Along with improving health, muscle building can also be a great source of confidence. Stay focused and dedicated and you will see great results in the way you look, and feel amazing results in your strength and physical functioning. Listen to the advice of experts when you want to create a muscle-building routine. Tips from professionals can boost your competitive edge, and help you create a routine that maximizes your success. Use the knowledge you gain to motivate you and provide a surge of confidence during your workouts.

Become informed to ensure that you’re performing the most effective exercises for increasing muscle. There are different types of exercise techniques that work on different things, such as toning or muscle building, as well as different muscle groups. Use a variety of exercises and techniques to get the results you want for each of your muscle groups.

Butcher Block Kitchen Countertop

Joseph K. Rivera List

Butcher block kitchen countertops, I agree, can be very beautiful. They are manufactured by gluing select strips of wood together in order to create one solid piece of wood. Butcher block countertops are available in a multitude of colors and finishes. Is it any wonder that they add a certain charm and warmth to any kitchen?
A tree, a replaceable natural resource, can be transformed into a breathtaking butcher block kitchen countertop. Jatoba, a very hardwood tree common to the Caribbean, Central and South America, is a tan/salmon color with black stripes that, in its own time, evolves into a rich red color. What a striking kitchen countertop that would make. Red maple, white oak, black walnut and cherry are some of the other varieties of wood that are used to fashion an impressive butcher block kitchen countertop. Teak and birch, which are softer and less durable woods, are usually used only for decorative designs.
Offsetting the obvious beauty of natural wood is the simple fact that wood can and does develop fissures and cracks. These cracks are a result of the wood expanding when it is wet and shrinking when it dries. However these cracks can be the source of dangerous bacteria growth, which is an absolute negative factor of wood kitchen countertops. Special precautions must be taken when preparing raw meats or uncooked poultry in order to prevent cross contamination to other foods that are eaten raw. Applying a coat of mineral/vegetable oil, lacquer or varnish should help control this problem that is very common with wood kitchen countertops. This coating should also help protect the butcher block kitchen countertop from cutting marks left by a sharp knife.

So we are dealing with the beauty of wood kitchen countertops as well as the high maintenance of wood kitchen countertops. This is a hard choice.

Most effective 3 Tips and hints – Have Questions About Interior Design? Get Answers Here

Renee W. Pettit List

Think about what your children want when designing their rooms. Keep in mind that a child does not see a room in the same way that you see it. Ensure that everything is safe and easy to use. Look at it as your kid would and get rid of possible hazards.

If you are designing a small room, make sure the furniture you choose is appropriately sized for the space. Large furniture will make your room look smaller and cluttered. Your furniture should be appropriate to the size of your room.

Fine art is a great investment for any room. You may not have been putting a lot of thought into art, but one small piece of artwork can unify the look of a room. A good piece of wall art can be a good source of inspiration for decorating the rest of the room.

When it comes to interior design, it helps to take advice from high-profile designers with a grain of salt and follow your own instincts. Your home will become that much better once you realize what exactly it is that you are looking to create, and it is always best to rely on your own judgement. It is ideal that most pieces of artwork are placed at the eye level of those occupying a room. Hanging a piece of art too high or too low throws the balance of your room and can even make the room look smaller and more disorganized. Have children? In that case a slipcover is a great idea. Simple slip covers on your furniture will give you a wide variety of design choices and colors, while protecting fabrics from contact with young children or pets. Think about using a new pattern every season. You can’t go wrong if you choose light colors to brighten up a small room. Beige or even off white can make any room give off a bigger appearance. Dark colors make a room feel smaller, so use them sparingly.

If you paint your ceiling a lighter shade, you will create the illusion of a bigger space. Dark ceilings look lower, and can quickly make a room feel small. A nice, bright ceiling gives off the appearance of a bigger and more expansive room.

An important interior design concept is to always consider the amount of light a room has. If you are lacking in window area in your room, you should paint the walls a light and bright color.

A great interior design tip is to make sure your blinds and drapes go with the rest of your room. If the blinds are modern looking but the drapes are old fashioned, then it will look kind of odd. They should make a room instead of destroy it, so do not forget them as you decorate. Children and adults will find this decorating hint helpful. Buy cheap, but unique picture frames for your walls. Instead of framing photographs, why not paint a series of images or words directly onto the wall within the frame? If you like to paint or draw, you have then created original masterpieces without buying expensive works of art. One of the most effective and attractive principles of interior design is the “Rule of Threes”. Especially when hanging things on walls, the general rule of “three” is a great designing strategy. Whichever way that you hang them, either horizontally, vertically or staggered, keep them in groups of three.

When you are choosing a new paint color to freshen up your ceiling, consider using “ceiling white.” This is a high-gloss paint that is designed to reflect your lights. The paint will result in much more light in whatever room you use it in.

Since you now have the knowledge that you need, do not wait to get started with your interior design plans. There is nothing better than trial by fire to really put your new knowledge to the test. With a positive attitude, you will soon enjoy great success.

Using pretty area rugs on concrete or tile floors will provide a cozy surface for your feet. To prevent too much damage to rugs, move them around often. You can easily remove dust and debris by hanging your rugs outside and hitting them with a stick.

New Hampshire Supreme Court Nullifies Jury Nullification Statute

Joseph K. Rivera List

The Fully Informed Jury Association reports that the New Hampshire Supreme Court has ruled unanimously that New Hampshires RSA 519:23-a, created by the passage of HB 146 in 2012, is not a jury nullification statute.
Drop By AD with regards to Paf :Paf

Helena, MT (PRWEB) October 24, 2014
The New Hampshire Supreme Court today issued its ruling in the appeal of the case of The State of New Hampshire v. Rich Paul (case number 2013-426), largely nullifying the law as a jury nullification statute. The court writes in its unanimous ruling that: “although RSA 519:23-a requires the trial court to allow the defendant to inform the jury of its right to judge the facts and the application of the law in relation to the facts in controversy, it does not require the court to allow the defendant to inform the jury that it has the right to judge the law or the right to ignore the law. In other words, it is not a jury nullification statute. Further, it is of no moment that the courts instructions may have contravened or undermined the defendants jury nullification argument because the statute gave the defendant no right to make such an argument.”

In 2012, New Hampshire passed and signed into law HB 146, a fully informed jury bill, which guaranteed that the defense be allowed in court to inform the jury of its right to judge the facts and the application of the law in relation to the facts in controversy. The New Hampshire legislature made clear in the text of the bill its intent “to perpetuate and reiterate the rights of the jury, as ordained under common law and recognized in the American jurisprudence.” The measure took effect on 1 January 2013 in New Hampshires Revised Statutes as RSA 519:23-a.

“This disappointingalbeit not surprisingruling underscores the continued importance and relevance of our educational mission here at the Fully Informed Jury Association,” said Kirsten Tynan, executive director of the Fully Informed Jury Association (FIJA). “Government has proven itself throughout history to be reluctant at best, and more often downright hostile, to the notion of informing jurors accurately and completely about their long-standing authority to conscientiously acquit defendants when the law is unjust. Indeed, this is why FIJA exists. We, the people, must educate one another about rights of jurors that government wishes would be forgotten. The New Hampshire Supreme Court has chosen an interpretation of HB 146 that circumvents its spirit, but this ruling has done nothing to diminish the right of jury nullification that jurors in New Hampshire had prior to the passage of the statute and continue to hold still today. Our mission to educate everyone about that right continues to be quite relevant in New Hampshire as government officials obviously cannot be counted on to accomplish this,” said Tynan.

After an early, successful use of this law by defendant Doug Darrell who was acquitted on victimless, marijuana-related charges, marijuana activist Rich Paul attempted to use this in his own defense in April 2013 when he stood trial over five victimless drug-related charges. Whereas the judge in the Darrell case, acting in accordance with the spirit of the law, issued jury instructions consistent with the statute, Judge Kissinger in Rich Pauls case declined to issue either of the suggested jury nullification instructions to the jury put forth by the defense or the prosecution. Instead, the judge instructed the jurors that they must follow the law as he explained it to them, even though they have the inherent right to set aside the law when a just verdict requires it and to conscientiously acquit the defendant, effectively circumventing the New Hampshire law intended to fully inform jurors of that right.

Even after passage of HB 146, jury nullification educators have continued to be active in the state of New Hampshire. In light of this ruling, they will continue their educational efforts to inform everyone throughout New Hampshire that:

Jurors cannot be punished for their verdicts.
Jurors have the right to deliver a general verdict and are not required to explain the reason for their verdict.
Jurors have the legal authority and the ethical duty to consult their consciences and to render a just verdict, even if it requires setting aside the law to do so.
About the Fully Informed Jury Association
FIJA is a non-profit, educational organization dedicated to informing the public about their rights and responsibilities as jurors in delivering just verdicts. The organization publishes and distributes educational literature, organizes and assists volunteers in local outreach, offers educational programs, and maintains a web site at FIJA.org to inform the general public of their traditional, legal authority to protect human rights by refusing to enforce bad laws. FIJA encourages all jurors to consult their consciences when deliberating over a case and to refuse to enforce any law that violates human rights.

ID Technology Introduces New Model 252 3-Panel Label Printer Applicator for Pallets

Joseph K. Rivera List

New 3-Panel Tamp Module for ID Technologys Model 252 Label Printer Applicator designed for customers requiring application of multiple labels to boxes or pallets at the same point in the production line. | See ID Technology at Pack Expo International; booth N-5406.

Fort Worth, TX (PRWEB) October 24, 2014
ID Technology – powered by Pro Mach, a leading provider of labeling, coding and marking solutions, will be debuting the new 3-Panel Tamp Module for their Model 252 Label Printer Applicator at Pack Expo International; booth N-5406.

The module is designed to work with a standard Model 252, the #1 selling printer applicator. The 3-Panel module was specifically built for production lines requiring the application of multiple labels to boxes or pallets at the same point in the production line. The result is a unique printer applicator that does the work of three.

Drop By Marketing Campaign on the subject of Paf :Paf
As a pallet approaches the printer applicator a tamp assembly, with a label on the tamp pad is extended. Once the tamp assembly is fully extended, the tamp pad rotates towards the approaching pallet and applies the label to the front panel. The tamp assembly then retracts to home position. As the pallet passes by the printer applicator, the tamp module extends just far enough to apply a label to the side panel. Once the pallet has passed the tamp module, the entire assembly extends again. This time the tamp pad rotates towards the back panel and applies a label. For added flexibility, operators can select label application to one, two or three panels of pallets or cases.

The Model 252 Label Printer Applicator and all related modules are built with ID Technologys revolutionary Centerline Modularity design philosophy. The goal of Centerline Modularity is to create an easily identifiable reference point for default calibration in product identification machinery. This is accomplished through a proprietary process that identifies and catalogues all possible points of adjustment in a machine, and then eliminates as many of those adjustment points as possible resulting in increased uptime and lower operating costs.

Learn The Skills The Basketball Pros Use

Renee W. Pettit List

Make layups count by taking off with the foot that is opposite to your shooting hand. Use your left foot when shooting with the right hand. This keeps your body balanced and moving toward the basket and keeps your body between yourself and your defender. As you can see from above the game of basketball is a lot of fun and simple to learn. Anyone can play basketball, but in order to play it well you need to master some simple tips, just like the ones you learned about here. Take all this information and use it to help improve your knowledge about basketball. Practice makes perfect. This is especially true in basketball. Learning how to shoot a basket, how to dribble and how to pass a ball is important to playing good basketball. Spending as little as 30 minutes practicing a day can really help develop your game and make you a better player.

To play solid defense, if you are guarding the person with the ball, keep your eyes on the basketball. If you look at his eyes instead, he will fake a pass one way, just by looking in that direction, and then dribble around you the other way. The ball can’t lie about where it’s going. As with almost all sports, good mental conditioning is as important as physical conditioning. It is a good practice to use deep breathing exercise before a game to get yourself in the proper frame of mind. A clear mind, focused on the game, is less likely to make mental errors during a game. Keeping calm and reacting maturely to getting beat is as important to your game as anything else. If your opponent has played harder and has out-hustled you, don’t get upset or stressed out, as your game will only suffer. Instead, think about how to match the intensity of your opponent. Beat them at their own game.

Practice as many different shots as you can. You never know when you will need one during a game. If you only practice bank shots, then you will feel less comfortable making a 3-point shot or a lay-up. Practice them all and you will see improvements in all of your shots. When you’re dribbling the ball, you should avoid looking down at the ball. You should be able to dribble without staring at the ball. If you can dribble without seeing the ball, you’ll be able to keep your eyes on the rest of the game. This will help you to know who is open for a pass or if you have a chance to take a shot.

Keep a basketball in your hands or arms as much as you can. This pertains to off the court. Dribble whenever and wherever you can. Just carry a basketball around with you, playing with it gently when safe. You want to be as familiar with a basketball as any part of your own body.

Make sure you warm up enough before a game starts. Your warm up activities should be enough to make you break even a just a minor sweat. If you don’t, you’re going to risk injury. However, you’re also going to risk getting winded early in the game, which opponents will take advantage of. Practice looking in the opposite direction when you make a pass. This trick can be used successfully to confuse defenders. If you do it right, the look makes members of the opposing team look in the wrong direction, which gives the person to whom you passed the ball plenty of time to make the shot. When completed correctly, it creates an awesome play. Practice makes perfect. This is especially true in basketball. Learning how to shoot a basket, how to dribble and how to pass a ball is important to playing good basketball. Spending as little as 30 minutes practicing a day can really help develop your game and make you a better player.

Employing Personal Development To Boost Your Thoughts, System And Disposition

Joseph K. Rivera List

One simple step to your personal development is doing things for the benefit of other people. You can see things from a different perspective, and gain some understanding about people who may be less fortunate. You will be a better person, and be recognized as such, when you take steps to benefit other people, regardless of your own gain or loss.

When trying to battle depression, focus on diet and boost your complex carb intake. If you dont get enough complex carbs, you will be low on serotonin. Eat more vegetables and fruits, whole grains, nuts and beans. Pick out what you wish to do in life and go do it. You can put all the thought into it and devise a perfect plan for life but if you never put it into action, then you will not see results. Therefore, you should get off your butt, and actually do something to turn your dream into a reality. You can make changes to your life by researching your issues and adopting a positive attitude. You also have to follow through no matter what. A more fulfilling life can be just as accessible as this article. Your mental health can be directly influenced by the physical heath of your body. Have healthy meals that are full of nutrients, and be sure to exercise as much as you can. Remember, a healthy, fit body can contribute to a healthy mind.

Teach your self to practice common habits of successful people. Begin with the basics, and practice them over and over until they become ingrained in your daily regimen. You should keep it up for at least 21 days to make it a habit.

You should always have an idea as to what you personal values are before you develop a plan for personal growth. It makes no sense to concentrate on things that are at odds with what you value. Try and improve areas that coincide with your values. If you do this, you can make lifelong positive changes, both personally and professionally. You should always look at the person you are on the outside rather than the person on the outside. Top of the line clothing or model-looks does not always make you a better person. Your personality is what will prevail in your life. Work to improve your inner beauty and self instead of concentrating on the superficial changes. Leadership is essential in your personal development. There are a number of ways to define leadership, but it is frequently defined as “influence.” Understand the events in your life that make up your leadership journey. Think about the circumstances that have had the most influence in your life. How did the events that took place have an effect on you? What personality characteristics define you as a team player? Analyzing these questions can help you generate a team perspective and allow you to lead by example. When dealing with personal development, not making a decision means forgoing an opportunity. This may mean you need to make decisions without having perfect information about the outcomes of those decisions. Being able to make good decisions sometime requires you to trust your instincts. Bad decisions have value though because they are experiences that teach lessons. If you make a wrong choice at one point, then you will ensure that your next one will be better. Make friends who are positive-minded and bring joy to your life. Surrounding yourself with negative people can have a poor influence on your mood and can rub off on your way of thinking.

Look to your internal beauty, rather than your external appearance. It does not matter if you wear the most expensive designer clothes or look like a super model. However, the personality you cultivate will be the one thing you are ultimately judged on. You will find greater reward if you focus on character growth rather than external modifications.

If you would like to move forward in personal development, you should be humble. By accepting your insignificance in the grand scheme of things, you begin to comprehend your ignorance and lack of wisdom. Once you realize this, you will be able to understand and improve upon yourself.

Life should be approached with wisdom and modesty. You can learn from the situations that you deal with on a daily basis. Ensure you can recognize what circumstances cant be changed in your life. A little modesty goes a long way in helping your work within your boundaries. The wisdom you have learned from the past will help you make better decisions, with better outcomes, in the future!

You must stop spending your time worrying. Worrying can cause you undo stress about situations that have no guarantee of ever happening, resulting in negative consequences to your well-being. Instead of worrying endlessly about what might happen, start preparing for those scenarios. Instead, you might feel prepared and more at ease in your mind and day-to-day life. Sometimes people establish goals and then dont stick to their plan, so they fail. The key point is to stick to it and dont ever give up. Whatever your goal is, just hang in there and day by day you will inch closer to realizing your dream. You will be so happy once you achieve your goal. Research positive habits that have helped others become successful. Pick out the most essential success habits from each person you research, then practice these habits until they embed themselves into your daily routine. Persevere in developing good habits, realizing that they come in time. Many people accept the adage that habits are engrained within you in as little as 21 days.

It is a lot easier to plan a personal development program when you are clear about what you want Guts Casino out of life. One of the things that will make the biggest difference in your outlook is having long-term goals.

Read some good books about personal development. A good book can provide you with the information that you need to get started on your journey toward a new you. Be sure that you pick out a book that has been favorably reviewed because a lot of the times, these type of books can be poorly written.

Alternatives ! ! ! – Advice On How To Play Golf Successfully

Renee W. Pettit List

When looking at used clubs, you must look at the head. You will be able to easily notice wear and tear on clubs that have had a lot of use in the past. This kind of wear can seriously affect your shots. If you believe your swing is too quick and your club’s head doesn’t have the ability to properly guide you in your swing, then an excellent solution is to use a grip that is more lightweight. Using a heavier club can help you focus on swinging all the way through the shot. Practice your swing whenever you can. If you are able to access a golf simulator, use it! Practicing your swing with regularity will help improve your game overall, so in order to be good, keep swinging that club. If you wiggle your toes a little before you swing this can tell you about your posture. If you have no trouble moving your feet, then you need to reduce the angle at which you are leaning relative to the ball. Lean enough to allow your feet to move slightly. Leaning too far results in your feet moving too much.

Graphite shafts can be used for more than just your driver. Take a moment to browse the newer graphite shafts on the market, and discover how ongoing changes in technology have allowed these ultra-diverse shafts to be a strong option for every club in your bag except your putter.

Maintain the correct stance. If you don’t know if you are standing properly, try tapping your toes down and up while not moving your feet. There should be some room for play without a lot of effort required. Leaning forward too much will make this nearly impossible. However, leaning back further than what is appropriate will make this too easy.

Check your grip on the club before you make your swing. Your palms will be firmly on the handle with the thumbs pointing downward. Your hands should be touching each other. When you want to hit your shot as far as possible, you must choke the club slightly as you swing.

If you are feeling that you are swinging too fast and that that your club head is not able to really guide you through your swing, one easy trick to help is to try out a more lightweight grip. This solution helps the club head to feel a bit more heavy throughout the swing, and it can assist you in staying focused mentally on your mechanics of your swing.

A great suggestion for beginning golfers is to make certain of the tee height. Your drives might not be efficient if the tree height is not right. Try to aim your golf ball a bit higher than the center of the club. If you want to have a good golf swing, your arms must be strong, flexible and limber. Take care of your arms, and ensure they are massaged, relaxed, and worked out on a regular basis. A massage will also help keep muscles limber, and give your joints an advantage for optimal mobility. Another way of keeping your body parts limber for golf is by trying a little yoga.

If you don’t have a lot of time to practice, prioritize putting and chipping practice. Work on your chipping and putting abilities. These skills will definitely pay off and help you feel more comfortable with a club. Find more time to work with wedges, 7 irons and more wedge shots on a short range for a perfect routine. When holding your club, utilize a neutral grip. You shots will lean to the right if you grasp you golf club too tightly. By the same token, an excessively loose grip will pull the ball leftwards. Use the way your shots go to figure out the right grip for yourself. One of the best things you can do for your game is practice your swing religiously. If your pro shop has a golf simulator, make use of it. Just practicing your swing can improve your game greatly.

You must have a solid and accurate grip on your golf club in order to swing it properly. A solid grip is key to hitting shots from different distances, and on different terrain. It is important to grip with your glove-hand correctly so that you can make better shots.

16 Asia,

Check this – Don’t Struggle With Great Nutrition. Simply Get Started With Juicing!

Renee W. Pettit List

If you can put whole fruits into your juicer instead of chopping them up, always remove pits before juicing the fruit. Otherwise you might be looking at a large repair bill, or you will have to purchase another juicer. You will also want to core apples in order to remove seeds before you put it in the juicer, because apple seeds are known to contain a small amount of cyanide.

The best type of juicer to use, whether beginner or expert, is a masticating juicer. This type of juicing equipment works to extract the juices in a more gentle way and the liquids retain more nutrients as a result. When juice is produced in this manner, it has greater stability and can be stored more successfully.

You need to include fruit and vegetables in your juice which you don’t get in your meals, and then add a few sweeter options to add flavor. You want this variety so as to get the ultimate nutritional advantages. Two great ingredients to use to mask flavors you don’t like are lemon juice and apples.

You should try produce that you would normally not consume, as you can always hide their flavors by using more popular tastes. If you never vary your routine, you will likely miss out on many key nutritious options. Lemons and apples help conceal flavors that you may not like.

Many people swear by freshly squeezed pineapple juice as a supplement to weight loss. A good mix with pineapple is apple or cranberry juice. Combine it with water to make the juice last even longer. Pineapple juice usually tastes best when served over ice. Always juice with fresh vegetables and fruits. It is unwise to use extremely ripe items, as they are not optimal for juicing. Also, be sure to cut away all bad spots on fruits and vegetables before you add them to the juicer. This will ensure that the juice you make is high in quality and tastes great.

Add as many low-calorie foods to your juice to increase its nutritional value and help burn fat. The most popular negative-calorie foods are broccoli, cabbage, kale and herbs. In addition, fruits that are high in fiber are an excellent choice, because it requires a large amount of digestion in order to effectively break them down. Try juicing as an interesting and delicious alternative to forcing vegetables onto the plate of a finicky child. Many children are not big fans of vegetables. Juicing fruit and vegetables in one drink will give you children a tasty, nutritional option.

Homemade pineapple juice is great to have in your arsenal of weight loss foods. You can add apple or berry juice to it for a great combination. Juice from the juicer is quite concentrated so adding pure, filtered water is a very good idea. Pineapple juice over crushed ice is a very tasty way to serve it. Always keep the juicer visible and ready for action. You will get more use out of your juicer if you keep it in this location. By keeping it visible at all times, you will be more likely to use it.

If you store your juicer in plain sight in your kitchen, you will be more likely to use it frequently. You will think much more frequently about making juice than you would if the juicer were stored in the cupboard.

Follow the colors when deciding what to juice. Reds, oranges, yellows and greens: they all add different nutrients to the final product. This enables a culinary experience that is high on nutrition value and bursting with flavor.

If you have diabetes or hypoglycemia, try juicing vegetables as opposed to fruits until you talk to your physician. Do not drink fruit juice because it can cause your blood sugar to rise rapidly. You need to monitor the use of fruits in your juices to accommodate your medical condition. Vegetables can give you powerful nutrients without the risk.

To fight against any type of bladder or urinary tract problem, you should mix up some cranberries into any juice recipe you’re drinking. Start adding them the moment you feel there may be a problem.

Juicing is something that anyone can do, even if you don’t have a lot of time or money. With the advice in this article, you’ll be able to make tasty fruit and vegetable juices that will boost your overall health. Once you get started juicing, you may find that you’re unable to stop.

Ellis Paul at the me and thee!

Joseph K. Rivera List

Ellis Paul at the me and thee!
Event on 2015-03-27 20:00:00
"Despite his success and sense of history, Mr. Paul remains an artist with his eye on the future and an interest in discovering the transformative potential in his music." – The New York Times Some artists document their lives through their music. Others chronicle their times. It's a rare artist who can do both, telling their own story through songs that also encapsulate the essence of people and places who have helped define their era overall. Woody Guthrie comes to mind, and so does Bob Dylan. Bruce Springsteen certainly as well. Yet few others, for whatever genius they may possess, can relate their own history to the history experienced by those who find that common bond, be it in a coming of age, living through the same realities or sharing similar experiences. Ellis Paul is one of those gifted singer/songwriters.Though some may refer to him as a folksinger, he is more, for lack of a better word, a singular storyteller, a musician whose words reach out from inside and yet also express the feelings, thoughts and sensibilities that most people can relate to in one way or another, regardless of age or upbringing. The exhilaration of the open road. A celebration of heroes. The hope for redemption. Descriptions of those things that are both near and dear. The sharing of love…, intimate, passionate and enduring. These are the scenarios that emerge from Ellis Paul's new album, Chasing Beauty, a set of songs which detail, in typical Paul fashion, stories of people and places that reflect larger truths about us all. "Kick Out the Lights (Johnny Cash)" pays tribute to that fearless American icon name-checked in its title. "Plastic Soldier" offers homage to a wounded soldier returning from Afghanistan. A real-life barnstorming pilot takes the spotlight in "Jimmie Angel's Flying Circus," while iconic Boston blue collar musician Dennis Brennan takes the focus in "Waiting on a Break." Even the Empire State Building and the Boston Red Sox get their due, via "Empire State" and "UK Girl (Boston Calling)," respectively. In reality, these stories are a continuation of tales Paul has told for more than a quarter century, over the expanse of nineteen albums, numerous critical kudos (15 Boston Music Awards alone), inclusion in several movie soundtracks, and stages he's headlined both near and far. "I've got a car with over 475,000 miles on it, and it's my third road vehicle," Paul declares. "I've been doing 200 shows a year for over twenty years. There isn't a town in the country where I won't find a friend. I'm a nomad. And I'm gonna write and play until I'm gone." No doubt he will. Still, it's somewhat ironic that Paul gravitated towards this bigger world of intent and expression given that the place Paul considers his hometown these days isn't New York or Nashville, or Boston or Austin or Charlottesville, VA. where he lives, but rather Presque Isle, Maine, a tiny enclave surrounded by three rivers. Not surprisingly, the name translates to "almost an island." Presque Isle shares a vanishing tradition with many small towns these days, where family farms are giving way to industrialization and giant corporations, and earning a livelihood from the land is no longer the simple option it once was. Nevertheless, it's still a haven for traditional values and for people as real and authentic as the soil they once tilled. If there's one grace left to cling to, it's the grace of nature's beauty, sealed off by the surrounding mountains and fields. Likewise, his geographical origins also couldn't have been further from the world at large. He was born in the dead of winter in the small town of Fort Kent, Maine, a place nestled right up next to the Canadian border. He came from humble origins, a family of potato farmers who could count among their forebears a veteran of the battle of Gettysburg, whose heroism on that field of honor earned him the 140 acres of Maine farmland that his descendants would continue to sow. It was the place that taught Paul the meaning of hard work and self-reliance, and the values that accompany as much drive and determination any individual could muster. As a boy, Paul found his escape in athletics, working out as a runner and testing his mettle in the open spaces near his home. He became a star competitor, and enjoyed the advantage of traveling throughout the nation after being given opportunities to compete. Along the way, he saw more of the country than most people do in a lifetime. "I was lucky to be able to travel for competitions all over the U.S. and to see places I once could only dream of," he recalls. "The Olympic Stadium in Los Angeles, the endless plains of Texas, the Kansas prairie, the Rocky Mountain in Wyoming. Every trip was funded by a hat the town passed around on my behalf, and it never came back empty." When Paul finished second in a nationwide track competition, he was met at the airport by the high school marching band and a fire engine with spinning lights that drove him in triumph through town. In an expression of hometown pride, the mayor handed him the key to the city. No one ever told Paul he had to follow in his family's tradition. He was a dreamer after all, and he had seen enough of America to know there was more out there than his little town could ever offer. Consequently, his ambitions were never destined to stay bottled up for long. He would write, paint, play trumpet and sing in the school choir. "I never had anyone tell me I had to be a farmer," Paul insists. "I had plenty of people telling me how my hard work and talent could take me places. That's enough to get you dreaming, And enough to make you believe those dreams are within reach." Indeed, Paul found those dreams were within his reach, at least in terms of his imagination. However their pursuit would take him far from home. His first destination was Boston College, courtesy of a track scholarship. Yet as Paul describes it, his athletic endeavors, combined with his academic responsibilities, served to rob him of his creativity. It was only after he suffered a knee injury which forced him to take a year off that he rebounded with a new form of expression, made possible when his girlfriend's sister gave him a secondhand guitar. "A mysterious, lustful partnership with the instrument followed," Paul concedes. "It became a marriage, a friendship, a lifelong bond that only comes when you find that one thing that becomes an extension of yourself. I played for hours, choosing to write my own original songs and sing instead of studying, socializing or exploring what the Boston streets could offer after hours." After graduation, Paul did find time to explore those paths, while taking opportunities to indulge his creative ambitions. Working as a teacher and social worker with inner city children by day and pursuing the possibilities offered by Boston's fertile music scene at night, he gained prominence in local coffeehouses and open mic nights. It was the same circuit that opened the door for other like-minded artists of the day, and in turn, gave Paul exposure to such creative contemporaries as Shawn Colvin, Dar Williams, Patty Larkin, John Gorka, Catie Curtis, and Bill Morrissey. It also helped him win a Boston Underground Songwriting competition and placement on a Windham Hill Records singer/songwriter compilation, bringing him his first hint of national exposure at the same time. The major tipping point in his career came with the opportunity to open for Bill Morrissey, one of New England's most prominent folk artists. Paul would repeatedly ask Morrissey about his own influences and seek his advice on who he ought to listen to. "You know, that's a very smart thing to do," Morrissey muses. "It helped set him apart. A lot of young singers I meet are not curious about what went on before; they just say, 'I want to sing another song about my life.' Paul has a sense of roots, of connectedness to the whole history of folk music; he sees the thread that runs through all the generations of this music." It was mutual admiration that caused Paul to ask Morrissey to produce his first full album, 1993's Say Something. It was released on Black Wolf Records, the label he founded with Ralph Jaccodine, the man who would become his manager. "Ralph was fulfilling a dream to get into the music business," Paul recalls. "Starting with a folk singer isn't a rocket launch, but we got off the ground. We started a label and began a lifelong, DIY partnership and have been in the trenches for over 20 years." Paul also became infatuated with the music of Woody Guthrie, drawn to Woody's social consciousness and the humanitarian streak that ran through his work. He even had a tattoo of Guthrie imprinted on his right shoulder, referring to it as "a badge of who he was." His commitment to Guthrie's legacy eventually led to his inclusion in a ten day celebration of Woody's work held at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in September 1996, an event that included such notables as Bruce Springsteen, Billy Bragg, the Indigo Girls and Ani DiFranco and which was presided over by Guthrie's daughter Nora. Later, when Guthrie's hometown of Okemah, Oklahoma hosted the first Woody Guthrie Folk Festival in July, 1998, Paul was tapped as one of the headliners. He has since made this an annual part of his touring schedule, garnering the honor of being named an honorary citizen of Okemah in the process. The connection with Guthrie continued into the new millennium when Nora Guthrie invited him to put music to a set of her father's lyrics. He later participated in the "Ribbon of Highway" tour, a communal salute featuring such luminaries as Arlo Guthrie, Marty Stuart, Ramblin' Jack Ellott, Nanci Griffith, Guy Clark and Janis Ian, among others. There's likely no greater evidence of how Guthrie's insights and humanity have rubbed off on Paul than in this particularly telling tribute from Nora Guthrie. "A singer songwriter is only as good as the times he reflects,"she said in praising Paul. "In times like these, when so many nuts are running the show, it's comforting to know that Ellis Paul is actually holding our sanity on his own stage! Wise, tender, brilliant and biting, Ellis is one of our best human compasses, marking in melodies and poems where we've been and where we might go if we so choose to. Personally Ellis, I'm goin' where you're goin'!" Where Paul is "goin'" is to practically every place a microphone beckons and a crowd of the folk faithful awaits. He's become a staple at the Newport Folk Festival, played Carnegie hall, and venues from Alaska to Miami, Paris and London. In addition to his 19 albums released on the Rounder and Black Wolf record labels, his music has appeared on dozens of distinguished compilations. A Film/DVD entitled 3000 Miles — part concert film, part documentary, part instructional video — provides a further prospective on both the man and his music. He's also released a pair of children's albums, earning him honors from the Parent's Choice Foundation for both. His latest, "The Hero In You" has been turned into a picture book, detailing the lives of great American heroes. Ellis' literate, evocative and insightful writings are further showcased in a book of poetry and short stories entitled "Notes from the Road," already in it's third pressing. It's no wonder then that recently Paul received a prestigious honor: an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree from the University of Maine, which also asked him to write the school's alma mater as well as deliver its commencement address in May 2014. Happily, his music has been shared with a wider audience as well, through commercials, documentaries, TV shows and in the soundtracks of several blockbuster films, among them three by the Farrelly Brothers — "Hall Pass" (starring Owen Wilson and Alyssa Milano), "Me, Myself, & Irene" (starring Jim Carrey) and "Shallow Hal" (starring Jack Black and Gwyneth Paltrow). Peter Farrelly summed up the sentiments of all those who have come to know and appreciate Paul's music by referring to him as "a national treasure." Not surprisingly, Paul's consistently been heralded by others as well. One writer noted "that it reminds you how much we need storytellers back in pop music — storytellers with empathy, fine eyes and an understanding that even though we live in a soulless, indifferent would, out music doesn't have to reflect our culture." Another reviewer was even more pointed. "Ellis Paul is one of the best singer/songwriters of his generation," she commented. "And for many of us he is the face of contemporary folk music. Few are as smart, as literate, as poetic as Paul. I cannot think of another artist on the acoustic music scene is better loved by fans, or more respected by his contemporaries." Indeed, he is all that, and in a very real sense, even more. He's an observer, a philosopher, and an astute storyteller who shares with his listeners the life lessons he's learned, and in turn, life lessons they ought to heed as well. By affirming and defining who he is, Ellis Paul affirms and uncovers the essence of us all. — Lee Zimmerman (writer/reviewer for American Songwriter, No Depression, New Times, Country Standard Time, Blurt, Relix, and M Music and Musicians)

Artist Info:
The story of Smallpools is mostly a series of happy coincidences. Vocalist Sean Scanlon and guitarist Mike Kamerman met at SXSW in 2007 while both of them were playing in different bands. After forging a friendship based on a mutual love of music and a shared frustration of not seeing their respective bands actually take off, the two eventually decided to join forces and, ultimately, leave the East Coast behind. Moving to LA in 2011 (We threw all of our stuff in a van and drove cross country from New Jersey, says Kamerman), both musicians had no solid plan other than to try and make music and not starve to death in the process. It just seemed like eventually something would have to happen, recalls vocalist Sean Scanlon. As luck would have it, eventually something did. After randomly crossing paths with bassist and recent Portland transplant Joe Intile (who, in turn, would randomly cross paths with drummer Beau Kuther, himself recently uprooted from Portland and dropped in Los Angeles for work), the newly assembled band booked some studio time in Atlanta to bang out three songs that would ultimately serve as a template for their burgeoning sound, a first in a series of happy surprises for the band.
The biggest surprise for me was the moment in which we realized that our friends were reacting favorably to the songs we were working on, says Kamerman. When we all got together and decided that we wanted to start playing music together, the real goal was to play a gig or two a month and just tap back into that creative sides of our brains again . Individually, we were all in similar places in life where we knew we wanted to play music but the reality of doing it for a living was looking grim. For me, the band and rehearsal and what not, was just meant to be this easy escape at night where I could go and play some music and forget about my day of waiting tables.
We had a lot of random ideas when we started, continues Kamerman, But once we kind of hit on the sound, I think we all knew it. We grew up listening to the same stuff that our parents lovedBilly Joel, Paul Simon, Springsteen, Elton Johnso the goal was always to push ourselves in writing what we thought were good songs. The actual sound of it just sort of came from this new world we suddenly found ourselves living in. After a year of really struggling in LA, the songs became the way out.
Recorded with up-and-coming LA production team Captain Cuts, the tracks on the self-titled EP nicely encapsulate the kind of kaleidoscopic rock/pop explosion Smallpools is all about. Dreaming is a potent statement of intenta propulsive synthsplosion that blends stadium-sized hooks with Scanlons euphoric vocals. When he sings the songs titular lyricPlease God tell me were dreaming!Its easy to imagine a million summertime sing-alongs happening in unison. Elsewhere tracks like Mason Jar and Over and Over have the kind of guitar lines and buoyant choruses that would make any lover of classic FM radio exceedingly happy. Given that all four bandmembers are seasoned musicians, the pristine pop of Smallpools music is no accident. The airtight songs dip and soar at all the right moments thanks to the no bullshit indie-pop hooks that seem to be embedded in their DNA.
Right now things are moving quickly for Smallpools. After Dreaming was unleashed on the Internet, the band was happily shocked to see the song shoot to #1 on Hype Machine and rack up over 100k in streams (and a small avalanche of blog attention) less than seven days after the song was released. Just eight months after they first experimented with making music together, the foursome behind Smallpools found themselves signing a major record deal with RCA, abandoning their day jobs and preparing to hit the roadthe novelty of which is not lost on any of them. Its the kind of fantasy career trajectory that musicians often dream about but seldom get to experience, but according to the band, Smallpools is still very much involved in the uphill climb. Despite the obvious struggles of being in a new band, much of Smallpools appeal seems to lie in the inherent optimism that seems to be the core of their songs.
Its really great to hear people say that they think our music is optimistic and uplifiting but at the end of the day I really just want the listener to feel SOMETHING; anything at all really, says Kamerman. I really hope that people can take away whatever they need from our music when they make that conscious decision to put it on, whether it be a feeling of invicibility or vulnerability.
Its such a wild thing, says vocalist Sean Scanlon. I keep thinking about when a lot of these songs were being written. I was working as a valet at a very fancy building in Westwood. The building had a 3-bedroom, fully furnished, multi-million dollar model unit that was completely vacant with a grand piano. I was able to spend hours there throughout the night writing lyrics and playing as loud as I wanted, which I couldnt possibly do in my one-bedroom apartment that I was sharing with Mike. There were nights I would work till11pm, go up to the model unit to write for a few hours, take a nap, and then come back downstairs for my 7amshift.Having that space available was a perfect getaway and vital to the songwriting. Once we signed a record deal I was able to quit the job, but I remain friends with most of the staff (all aspiring actors/musicians) and I still utilize the model unit to write songs.
These days, Smallpools is like a group of brothers with ADD working in their dads factory on an assembly line, explains Scanlon. Everybody has their roll, but sometimes one will wander into anothers department, to help or to frustrate. And every now and again everybody just stops production and plays a game of Street Fighter or gets lunch.
Weve all done our time working on a million projects that didnt make it, confers drummer Beau Kuther. And just when you start to think its time to maybe give up, suddenly everything youve been working for suddenly starts to come together. Its kind of like falling in love, as soon as you stop trying so hard, then it happens. Thats basically the story of our band.
We had our expectations set so extremely low for success, says Kamerman. Success wasnt even a thought actually. The objective was to challenge ourselves musically and have fun doing so. We were working these shitty jobs, struggling to pay rent and racking up debt on credit cards. We just wanted to be proud of something again and we knew we needed to be proud of the sounds we were creating. Sean and I had spent the majority of the first year in LA trying to figure out how to fit in. Once we realized how stupid that was of us, we were so mad at ourselves. We didnt realize it at the time, but meeting Joe and Beau definitely saved our sanity. The energy in our rehearsal room was so exciting to us and were just extremely flattered that it was exciting to others out of the gate.
Long before Axl Rose stepped off the bus and into the unknown in 1987s Welcome to the Jungle video, hopeful musicians have made the pilgrimage to Los Angeles in hopes of making it big in the music business. Unfortunately for most, the journey to the City of Angels is often just a shortcut to heartbreak (and a career in the service industry), but for a select few this gamble can still apparently pay off. In the case of Smallpoolsa band of L.A. transplants making sublime power popthe gamble of running away to California and starting a band has just started to pay off serious dividends.
As for the future of Smallpools, everyone in the band agrees that they are in it to win it, with the expectation that the story of the band is one that is only just beginning to be written. My wildest fantasy for this band would just be for us to continue writing exciting music that were proud of for years and years to come, says Kamerman. We are going to finish a full-length album and tour as much as we physically can, confers Kuther, I want create a community of Smallpools enthusiasts that will stick with us for a long time and make this band a career band. We are striving for longevity, not a quick success.

10 Directions – A Crash Course To Dealing With Pregnancy.

Renee W. Pettit List

If you are switching to healthier foods and a healthier lifestyle, advise your partner to join in and follow suit. This makes the switch to a healthier diet easier, and it gets you both on track to better nutrition, which you will both need in the years to come. You might need to add more proteins to your diet. Protein is necessary for your baby’s development and your body needs it to keep up with the demands of your developing baby. Foods that are high in protein include nuts, legumes, eggs, chicken, hamburger meat, sunflower and pumpkin seeds, and tofu.

Snack on more neutral foods like dry crackers during pregnancy. Snacking on these types of foods can ease nausea and help keep your stomach settled. Choosing foods with more acid or grease instead has the reverse effect, adding to stomach discomfort and other digestion issues.

Don’t overeat while you’re pregnant to avoid having to lose a lot of weight after you have the baby. Don’t stuff your face with twice what you normally eat. A common accepted guideline for proper fetal development is to take in up to 300 additional calories daily for the final six months. Unusual amounts of vaginal discharge during your pregnancy should be reported to your doctor. It may be a vaginal infection which can be common in pregnancy, or it may indicate a more serious problem that needs to be addressed. Whether you snored before pregnancy or not, it is quite a common occurrence for snoring to increase while you are pregnant. This occurs due to the swelling of the nasal membranes. If it becomes a sleep disturbance to your partner, you can try nasal strips to open up your nasal airways. Another option is having your partner wear ear plugs.

Staying relaxed and as stress-free as possible during pregnancy is essential. The stress has very adverse effects on the pregnant body, as well as possibly severe damage to the unborn child. If some cases, large amounts of stress could make the baby come out too soon.

If you apply the suggestions from this informative guide, you will find that pregnancy is truly a time to be cherished forever. These simple yet valuable hints and tips can relieve some of your stress and help you gain confidence that both your and your unborn baby are going to remain strong and healthy.

Although skin is naturally elastic, even the most supple skin is limited in the amount that it can stretch. In many cases, the expanding skin of a pregnant woman’s belly will itch. When trying to make the situation more bearable, it is important not to bathe in hot water. Hot water will wipe away the natural oils on your skin and make it more dried out and itchy. Be sure to moisturize with something heavy, such as cocoa butter, or petroleum jelly. Make sure that the clothing you wear does not rub against the skin too tightly and avoid scratching! There are a few foods you’ll need to avoid eating while you are pregnant. Unpasteurized milk, raw seafood and some cheeses are best left alone until after your baby is born. When you are pregnant, you will want to limit the amount of alcohol that you consume. This means that when you are out with your friends, you will need to become more responsible for the sake of your baby. Practice good drinking habits to maximize the success of your pregnancy.

It’s not necessary to learn everything in one day. After all, you have quite a few months of pregnancy ahead of you. Take all the information in at a slow pace so that you do not become overwhelmed. Start with the advice that this article has taught you, and expand on that as you move forward. More than anything else, simply relax and have a wonderful pregnancy!

Psychic Witches and Witchcraft

Joseph K. Rivera List

Psychic Witch
Historically speaking, witches were people who were hunted down by the church and found guilty of doing witchcraft.
Besides for displaying psychic abilities, a person could find herself on a burning stake for being a social reject, for angering the wrong people, for following different spiritual traditions, for willingly or unwillingly evoking fear in others, or for simply being a woman with a lowly social status.
(Its a familiar situation: by playing to the intense, subconscious fears of the masses the few powerful people could pretty much doom anyone to death.)
Every village had a wise person who was in possession of some knowledge passed down through the generations, and to whom people turned to help of semi-spiritual nature. In these times being a witch was not a voluntary declaration of identity, but a judgment from others.
A modern, self-declared witch is someone who is pursuing the path of the psychic through the few tradition-remnants of these ages.
Psychic Witchcraft
Witchcraft is a term which covers a wide area and can mean many things, not unlike the term psychic.
The main difference between the two is the context in which they are used:
Witchcraft is something witches did, in a world ruled by simple-minded religion on one hand and a vast amount of superstition on the other. Today, our world is most influenced by scientific progress, and this is the context in which the term psychic is used.
Both psychic understanding and witchcraft attempt to describe and influence the spiritual realm with words, concepts and ideas which are most abundant around us.
On the more practical side, modern witchcraft generally relies more on rituals, spells, spirits of nature, and cosmic laws, whereas the psychic path focuses on the psychics mind and consciousness – and goes forth from there.
Psychic witchcraft is a pragmatic approach: use whichever method is suitable to you to enhance your understanding and achieve your goals.
