How To Make A Girl Feel At Home

It is what you have been angling for all night or maybe all month. But she has finally decided to come over to your apartment for dinner or movies or whatever you have suggested. What can you do to ensure that her visit is comfortable and will make her want to come back again.

Here are some ideas.

Now this first one should be a no brainer, but it must be said. Your place must be spotless. You must take some time to clean and pick up your place. You need to pay special attention to the bathroom and the kitchen. I guarantee you this is way more important than a clean bedroom. A girl is going to notice if you keep the bathroom and kitchen clean, so expend most of your energy in this area. Then pick up the rest of the apartment or house and look for obvious signs of dirt such as heavy dust build up or crap all over the carpet. Easy fixes. But make sure your kitchen and bath are spotless.

The next thing you need to concentrate on is making sure the temperature in your apartment is comfortable. If it is a steamy hot summer night, you better have an army of fans or air conditioner. If it is cold, crank up the heat ahead of time and if that is not sufficient, then invest in some space heaters. Make it a little warmer than you would naturally. Women like to be warm and cozy. The womans comfort is key here, right?

Ambience. This really matters to women. It can be achieved cheaply and simply with lighting and music. Even if you dont have a lot of extra cash, you can invest in some cheap votive candles and holders. In fact, one of my tricks is to save my fancy Bonne Maman jelly jars and then put small white votive candles in them and put them EVERYWHERE around my place. You can string white Christmas lights to evoke a romantic mood as well. Soft lighting is flattering to women and they love it. Bring on the romance! Ambience also involves smells. Dont clutter your place with chemical smells from cleaning or other strong smells from incense or candles. Buy non scented candles, especially for where you eat. Because people have such different preferences for scents, I always avoid any because nothing is worse than walking into a place with a smell that turns you off and not being able to get away from it.

Think about what music you want to play in relation to what sort of mood you want to build, as well. Have your music ready to go. The ambience of your place could really make or break your date.

After ambience, I would be sure to have something nice to drink really whatever she likes. Maybe even a bottle of champagne or a great bottle of wine and have that chilling and ready to go. Have something yummy to much on. Maybe some good cheese and some olives or some treats.

With a little bit of preparation, you can make your home inviting and make your girl want to come back over and over again.

Princes William and Harry host the Concert for Diana

Princes William and Harry host the Concert for Diana

Monday, July 2, 2007

Performances by Sir Elton John and the English National Ballet featured in the Concert for Diana, held in Wembley Stadium, London on Sunday to commemorate the late Diana, Princess of Wales life on what would have been her 46th birthday.

As a result of the terror attacks in the United Kingdom on the days prior to the event, heightened security precautions were in force, with a high police presence around the venue, and bag searches taking place. Despite the security fears, over 63,000 attended the concert. It was televised to 120 countries around the world, with a potential audience of 500 million.

The concert, broadcast by the BBC, featured acts from many groups and individuals including Sir Elton John, and the English National Ballet. It was hosted by Princes William and Harry and opened and closed by Sir Elton John, who is remembered for having played a unique rendition of Candle in the Wind at the Princess’ funeral.

Performances were interspersed with tributes from various public figures including Tony Blair, the former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, and Nelson Mandela, the former President of South Africa. Films showing parts of Diana’s life, with testimony from those who worked with her, were also aired, publicising the Princess’ work around the world, which was to be supported by profits from the concert.

Pyrotechnics at Ecuador nightclub rock concert trigger 15-fatality fire

Pyrotechnics at Ecuador nightclub rock concert trigger 15-fatality fire

Monday, April 21, 2008

A nightclub hosting a rock concert in Ecuador’s capital Quito has been swept by fire ignited by pyrotechnics. At least 15 people are dead and 35 injured.

The nightclub was located around 500 metres from the city’s main commercial centre, which is in the south of the city.

Figures for dead and injured come from the Red Cross. 300 people had flocked to the Factory club for a music awards ceremony.

One of the deceased, who were all between 24 and 25 years of age, has been identified but their name is not public. The rest are badly burned and may take up to ten days to identify. 16 of those injured remain hospitalised for burns and suffocation. According to Vice Mayor Margarita Carranco those killed “died because they were in the rear area where the blaze ignited, or because they were trampled by the crowd”.

While rescuers continue to search for any remaining bodies, police are investigating the disaster. One line of enquiry concerns whether adequate safety precautions were taken. Quito Fire Chief Jaime Benalcazar informed local radio that the emergency exits were padlocked shut. Preliminary investigations show that a roman candle lit by a band member triggered the disaster. The Factory had not been authorised to hold the event.

City authorities declared three days of mourning and vowed to sue alongside relatives of the deceased. The city will pay all costs for DNA testing, burial and transport of two bodies to other provinces.

New Zealand government denies financial assistance for Overlander

New Zealand government denies financial assistance for Overlander

By |

Monday, September 25, 2006

The New Zealand government today has announced that they will not provide financial assistance to the Overlander train service between Auckland and Wellington, which is set to stop service on September 30, if no assistance is forthcoming. ONTRACK will retain the North Island main trunk line, while looking for tourism operators to start a tourist rail service.

Trevor Mallard, acting Finance Minister, said: “In making this decision… Cabinet recognised that there was no prospect of the current Overlander service becoming commercially viable. It was not a fuel-efficient operation and at an average passenger rate of 50 passengers each way per day, it was used by relatively few people.”

It is cheaper and faster to travel either by bus or plane rather than the 12-hour train journey. “The fares already overlap with airfares, and the reality is that the service is just not well-used. It can not compete with low-priced air travel and coaches. Cabinet considered the regional implications of ceasing the Overlander service and accepted that the current bus services run by the InterCity Group met the needs of those communities,” Mallard said.

There has been numerous petitions from the public and from the Green Party of New Zealand to continue the Overlander train service, including one petition signed by 16,000 people presented at the Parliament Buildings on September 14, 2006. “While there have been a number of propositions about retaining the Overlander service, all of the propositions would require government funding in one form or another,” said Mallard.

Mallard said that the government will only support rail services if it significantly benefitted the community.

The Government estimates that financial assistance to the Overlander train service would cost NZ$1.75 million a year.

“Finally, the government does recognise and value the importance of a viable and efficient rail network in New Zealand’s transport infrastructure. This was a critical factor in the government’s decision to buy the rail network back from Tranz Rail. The government has also committed $200 million to upgrade the national rail network between 2004/05 and 2007/08. A further $600 million has been provided to upgrade the Auckland rail network between 2005/06 and 2009/10.”

All You Need To Learn About Attraction Marketing

If you’re like most people, you’ve never heard of attraction marketing. Or if you have, you probably thought it was a gimmick or a scam. The truth is, attraction marketing is based on perfectly sound and effective principles. This valuable approach to marketing teaches that the goal is to get lifelong customers, rather then short-term profits. When you live sale by sale you will never get anywhere; you need to to earn customer loyalty in order to preform well. The general tendency of online shoppers is to avoid call to actions; they simply want things suggested to them. Though you may see someone who is frivolously spending money, never push them; gently coax them in. To put it simply, attraction marketing is successful because it eliminates the struggle of sales pressures and operates instead on the power of positive energy. When you do this, you’ll make a lot of sales without even looking or sounding like a salesman. As you continue to read, you will discover all that there is to making attraction marketing a vital part of your business practices.

Easily one of the most important facets of any internet based business should be to deliver real value to the customer. Unfortunately, many people are so driven by the short term focus that they never really give their customers any significant value. Attraction marketing will work wonders, but you do need to have some insight on giving a beneficial proposition to customers. Regardless of whether you are acquiring new customers or just maintaining your current customer list, if you are not providing value, your business will lack a crucial element. You should be intimately familiar with your target market and be aware of what they really need.

You need to come across as giving value to your customers, not just hard selling the value. When customers recognize you as honest and eager to help them with their needs, they will become loyal to you. This simple change in attitude will go a long way to helping you build your project! By concentrating on this one factor, you will be able to zoom ahead of your competition in more than one way. There are many different things to take into consideration about your site but from top to bottom your site should show what sorts of benefits you can offer and allow your customers to see how you operate. Online users are always looking for the next better thing down the line. If you can give them that great experience they’re seeking you will create a loyal customer base that will be with you for the long haul.

You need to make sure that you create a unique shopping experience for your customers. In other words, don’t use a template for a blog that everyone else has, get a professional to do something original for you. Not only will you be viewed in a new light by your customers, you will be seen as a professional with a legitimate business. Through being original, you will carve out a place in the online business world of your own. Don’t just do what everyone else is doing, create a unique statement. Usually this facet of attraction marketing is over looked, and it’s a fatal error.

Last but not the least, try to think of having quality everywhere in your business. Whether it’s the content of your site, your email messages or a simple post on your blog, don’t go for anything mediocore. Always be professional, make your content easy to read and navigate, provide quality and value – these are what you need to make attraction marketing successful.

Interview: Drupal founder Dries Buytaert balances community and company interests

Interview: Drupal founder Dries Buytaert balances community and company interests

By | June 27, 2017

Sunday, February 24, 2008

In the year 2000, Dries Buytaert created Drupal, a freely licensed and open source tool to manage websites, as a bulletin board for his college dorm. Since Dries released the software and a community of thousands of volunteer developers have added and improved modules, Drupal has grown immensely popular. Drupal won the overall Open CMS Award in 2007, and some speakers in Drupal’s spacious developer’s room at FOSDEM 2008 were dreaming aloud of its world domination.

Buytaert (now 29) just finished his doctoral thesis and has founded the start-up Acquia. The new company wants to become Drupal’s best friend, with the help of an all-star team and US$7 million collected from venture capitalists. Wikinews reporter Michaël Laurent sat down with Dries in Brussels to discuss these recent exciting developments.

“Anonymous” plans to protest Church of Scientology on February 10

“Anonymous” plans to protest Church of Scientology on February 10

By |

Tuesday, January 29, 2008

The Internet-based group “Anonymous” released a new video on YouTube Monday, announcing international protests outside Church of Scientology centers set for February 10. The video “Call to Action” uses the same computer synthesized voice as a previous video titled “Message to Scientology”, which was posted to YouTube last Monday. The “Message to Scientology” video has been viewed over 1,400,000 times, and the “Call to Action” video has already been viewed over 237,000 times.

Anonymous is taking action against the Church of Scientology in response to what it sees as suppression of freedom of speech on the Internet. The group was first motivated after the Church of Scientology issued a copyright infringement claim to YouTube regarding a promotional video of Scientologist Tom Cruise speaking about his beliefs and using Scientology jargon. The Church of Scientology also issued a legal complaint to the website which is also hosting the video, but Gawker has stated it will not take the video down because it is newsworthy.

Anonymous set up a movement called “Project Chanology” to coordinate their efforts, and took down several Church of Scientology websites through denial-of-service attacks. Members of Anonymous have also participated in prank calls to Church of Scientology centers, as well as protests or “raids” outside Scientology buildings, and have posted some of their exploits to YouTube.

Anonymous is a collective of individuals united by an awareness that someone must do the right thing.

In the “Call to Action” video, Anonymous denies that they are composed solely of “super hackers”, stating “Anonymous is a collective of individuals united by an awareness that someone must do the right thing, that someone must bring light to the darkness, that someone must open the eyes of a public that has slumbered for far too long.” The video goes on to state “We want you to be aware of the very real dangers of Scientology,” citing what they term “gross human rights violations”.

Specific controversial events in Scientology history are cited in the video, including Operation Freakout and Paulette Cooper, and Operation Snow White. Operation Freakout was the name of a Church of Scientology operation whose goal was to “get P.C. [Paulette Cooper] incarcerated in a mental institution or jail or at least to hit her so hard that she drops her attacks.” Paulette Cooper had written a book critical of Scientology called The Scandal of Scientology. Operation Snow White was the name of a Church of Scientology operation where members of the Church’s secretive Guardian’s Office infiltrated United States government agencies in Washington, D.C. including the I.R.S. The F.B.I.’s investigation into Operation Snow White led them to discover the planning of actions taken against Paulette Cooper.

The video concludes by inviting the viewer to “take up the banner of free speech” and protest with Anonymous world wide. In an email to CNET News, Anonymous stated that cities where unknown activities are planned on February 10 include New York City, Montreal, Houston, London, Melbourne, and Los Angeles.

On Friday, two spokespersons for the Church of Scientology commented on the recent actions of Anonymous. A spokesman told “These types of people have got some wrong information about us,” and Church spokeswoman Yvette Shank told Sun Media that she regarded members of Anonymous as a “pathetic” group of “computer geeks”. On Monday, Radar reported that the Church of Scientology has asked the U.S. Attorney General‘s office in Los Angeles, the F.B.I., and the LAPD to start a criminal investigation of possible criminal activity related to the Internet attacks. A source told Radar that the Church of Scientology is arguing that the Internet attacks are a form of “illegal interference with business.” Radar also reports that the Church of Scientology is emphasizing its status as a religious organization in the United States, in order to assert that the Internet attacks can be classed as hate crimes.

I’m mainly concerned because you shouldn’t be doing things that are illegal, you just shouldn’t.

On Saturday, Mark Bunker of the website posted a video to YouTube criticizing the illegal actions of Anonymous and suggested legal methods for them to retaliate against the Church of Scientology, including peaceful protesting, writing letters to their government representatives, and persuading the United States government to take away the Church of Scientology’s tax exempt status. In the video, Bunker states “I’m mainly concerned because you shouldn’t be doing things that are illegal, you just shouldn’t. It’s not morally right, and it’s not right when Scientology does it, it’s not right when we do it.” Bunker’s video post has been viewed over 156,000 times. On Sunday, Bunker posted a follow-up video to YouTube where he gives advice to Anonymous on how to peacefully picket. He also provides viewers with resources and weblinks to more information on how to hold a peaceful protest. He concludes this video by imitating Obi-Wan Kenobi‘s Jedi mind trick technique and voice from Star Wars, stating “And if I may, as Obi-Wan, tell you: You will do nothing illegal “.

Saudis boycott Danish dairy produce

Saudis boycott Danish dairy produce

By |

Friday, January 27, 2006

On January 26, 2006, a massive boycott of dairy produce from Arla Foods started in Saudi Arabia over what is perceived as a Danish attack on Muslim values. The Saudi ambassador to Denmark has been recalled for consultations.

The Danish/Swedish dairy company Arla is facing a massive loss after a spreading boycott of its produce in Saudi Arabia. Four Saudi retail chains have already removed Arla products from the shelves. One retail chain has placed yellow warning tape (common fare for accidents and crime scenes) over Arla products. There have been cases reported of Arla delivery trucks being attacked by stones thrown from bystanders. Marianne Castenskiold, a senior consultant for Dansk Industri, expressed a fear that the boycott will spread to other countries in the region and have detrimental effects on other Danish products. Denmark is one of the leading exporters of agriculture in northern Europe, whose economy is heavily dependent on foreign trade and investment.

The boycott has been announced at Friday prayer services in Saudi mosques since January 20, 2006, obviously helping to foment popular support of the nation’s response to Denmark’s alleged ignorance of Muslim values. On at least one occasion, a delivery truck has been greeted by thrown stones.

The boycott is a response to the publication of an article in a major Danish newspaper, Jyllands-Posten. In its September 30, 2005 issue, the paper printed 12 drawings of the Muslim prophet Muhammed, as a response to previous news reports that the publisher of a forthcoming childrens’ book about the prophet had had difficulty in finding an illustrator, due to fear of extremist reactions; drawings of the prophet are prohibited by Islamic Law (see aniconism). In an attempt to start a debate over freedom of speech in Denmark, the newspaper printed 12 drawings of the prophet. Four of these were of a satirical nature, with one showing the prophet with a turban hiding a lit bomb.

The immediate reactions to the publication of the drawings included ambassadors from 12 Muslim countries demanding that the Danish Prime Minister, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, denounce the newspaper. Rasmussen rejected this demand, stating that “Danish freedom of speech does not allow the government to control what newspapers print”. He further noted that the only possible legal action against the newspaper would be one under the charge of blasphemy.

A debate ensued over the following months about freedom of speech and its value in relation to avoiding religious taboos. In mid-December 2005, a delegation from several Danish Muslim organizations went on a tour in several Middle-Eastern and Arabic countries, reportedly to gain sympathy for their point of view. Several reports state that during the tour the difficulties faced by Muslims in Denmark were grossly overstated.

Malaysia Entrusted Hope In The New Growth Model

By | June 25, 2017

By Christina Xia

“New economic model programs” background yes “Hou crisis era,” the global economic pattern of major adjustment in emerging-market countries in the world economic stage play a more important role, as the last half century, the most active emerging market countries Malaysia , which will become an essential core members. In this case, Malaysia believes that to be as soon as possible “post-crisis era” of the global economy, reasonable to define their own position and to develop long-term economic development strategy.

In the “program” before and after the official promulgation, in order to ensure its smooth implementation, the Malaysian government for this reason, the four support strategy: First, in April 2009 Declaration of Nagy’s ruling that “a Malaysian, and people-oriented, immediate performance,” It “program” implemented to provide a good mass base; Second, in January of this year, including six major areas of reform to develop the “government reform plan,” which is “program” the implementation of the provision of efficient government services; Third, in March of this year through reform initiatives, including eight “economic reform plan,” which is “program” to implement the driving force; 4 issued in June this year, “Malaysia’s Tenth National Development Plan,” its “program” in the next 5 years carried out a detailed implementation of the provisions of the details.

Specifically, the “program” of the main frame can be summarized into four levels: three major advantages of development, three strategic objectives, policies and measures four and eight power.

The advantage, first, relatively prosperous Malaysia, wealth, and has good infrastructure; followed by years of construction, Malaysia already has a “world class” manufacturing base; again, China, India, Indonesia and the Australian economy sustained and rapid growth, the formation of the four countries present world economic circle as the “active plate”, Malaysia is in the “plate” of the center, with excellent geographical advantage the economy; Finally, Malaysia has diversified cultural, ethnic and biological resources, which will be the economic development of “soft power.”

Meanwhile, the “proposal” put forward, we should improve the quality of life for citizens of Malaysia as the “new economy” the ultimate goal, which needs first to achieve three objectives: first, into the “high-income countries,” ranks, which in 2020 for Jiang Ren Jun the level of GDP increased to 15,000 to 20,000 dollars; second is the formation of “share-type” growth model, even if all citizens have equal and equitable sharing of wealth accumulation and economic growth; third is to maintain sustained economic development, that is not the price of sacrificing the welfare of future generations of high-speed growth for a time.

In addition, in order to achieve strategic objectives, “program” that requires four levels of power: first, firm leadership, “fortitude” and political “will power”; second is a strong “civil consensus” force generated by the reforms; third synchronization policy measures and actions “boost power”; Fourth, the strategic implementation of the strategy of constantly refining and improving the “resilience.”

Finally, the “program” designed eight specific reform measures: First, re “activate” the economic vitality of the private sector; second is to train high quality manpower resources to reduce dependence on foreign human capital; third is to build a competitive domestic economic environment; Fourth, strengthening the public sector; 5 is to promote the implementation to keep the market transparent and friendly “affirmative action”; 6 is consolidating domestic “intelligence” base, speed up the “knowledge” infrastructure; 7 through reforms for the economy new sources of growth; 8 through the financial system and other reforms to ensure sustainable economic development.

“The new growth model” long way to go

“Program” in the implementation process will be subject to political, ethnic and religious, and many other factors. Among them, the biggest obstacle came from traditional politics in Malaysia, “affirmative action”, the policy is intended to help with the local Malays and indigenous ethnic minorities, including the Chinese competition. The short term, significant change in Malaysian government more economic incentives to enjoy the status, it is very difficult to do. However, if you do not change this “unfair” policy, it is difficult to achieve economic justice and fair market, Malaysia must in the “middle income trap” in the mud in a more long-term struggle.

However, to bring people to Hope, this year in June, in its “Tenth National Development Plan”, the Malaysian Government to “step by step towards high-income countries” as “plan,” the subtitle, and in the “plan” text repeatedly pledged to overcome all difficulties to comprehensive economic and social reform. The “program” in the text of the final also threw out a very encouraging statement, “is the time for a change: Malaysia should be so.”

As for Malaysia into or about to enter into “middle-income trap” and other Asian countries, this can not but say that is also a call and encouragement.

NASA sets launch date for Space Shuttle Discovery

NASA sets launch date for Space Shuttle Discovery

By |

Saturday, March 7, 2009

After almost two months of delay, NASA has set March 11 as the launch date for Space Shuttle Discovery. On February 22, NASA had stated that they indefinitely delayed the launch of Space Shuttle Discovery, which was originally scheduled for takeoff on February 12. Launch was then further delayed until February 25 before being delayed indefinitely on February 22. NASA cited the need for additional time to evaluate the shuttle’s hydrogen fuel flow control valves.

Liftoff is set for nighttime on Wednesday, March 11, at approximately 9:20 p.m. (EST) from Launch Complex 39A in Cape Canaveral, Florida. The official countdown to launch will commence Sunday, March 8.

“The team came through, worked hard and was efficient. It’s time now to step back and think of everything else we need to watch before launch on the 11th. There’s no better team than this one and I thank them for putting the right analysis together,” said Bill Gerstenmaier, associate administrator for Space Operations at NASA.

NASA wanted to perform additional tests on the valves which control the amount of hydrogen fuel pumped into the external tank when the shuttle is taking off before making a decision to launch. When Space Shuttle Endeavour went into space in November 2008, one of the valves broke. NASA fears that if one breaks off on this mission, then it could damage the outside of the shuttle.

The current scheduled mission, STS-119, is set to fly the Integrated Truss Structure segment (“S” for starboard, the right side of the station, and “6” for its place at the very end of the starboard truss) and install the final set of power-generating solar arrays to the International Space Station. The arrays consist of two 115-foot-long arrays, for a total wing span of 240 feet, including the equipment that connects the two halves and allows them to twist as they track the sun. Altogether, the four sets of arrays can generate 84 to 120 kilowatts of electricity – enough to provide power for more than 40 average homes.

Commander Lee Archambault will lead Discovery’s crew of seven, along with Pilot Tony Antonelli, and Mission Specialists Joseph Acaba, John Phillips, Steve Swanson, Richard Arnold, and Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency astronaut Koichi Wakata.
