LED Strip LightingThe power and strength of LED strip lighting emanates from LED lighting lamps whose revolutionary approach to illumination will soon change the entire lighting industry. LED lighting lamps utilize semiconductors and diodes to produce low voltage lighting with minimal heat. LED lighting lamps consume far less energy than any other form of light bulb, and with reduced heat they offer little, if any, fire hazard and no damage to their immediate environment. Phantoms LED lighting lamp technology offers the best and most technologically sophisticated value for task and aesthetic lighting needs of both residential and commercial clients.Phantom strip lighting employs LED lamps that operate for up to 50,000 hours and produce ZERO UV rays. Patrons of the art find LED lighting lamps the optimal solution to the problematics of heat and UV radiation that can damage oils and canvases. They especially appreciate the added value of longer burn time, as LEDs do not have filaments that emit heat. LED lighting lamps feature an on board heat sink to dissipate heat and extend lamp life. LED technology offers backward compatibility benefits as well. LEDs can be used as replacement lamps for any lighting strip operating at 12V. Their miniature size and high output diodes benefit users with maximized effects and reliable performance. Virtually maintenance free and requiring only rare replacement, they continue to rise to preeminence as the favored lighting technology of designers, manufacturers, and contractors.Phantom Lighting uses the finest light emitting diodes on the market with tight lumen output and color binning that produces up to five times the output of typical festoon lamps. LED lighting lamps are available in four color temperatures: 2950K, 3500K, 5000K, and 6500K, each with specialized application to task, functional, aesthetic, and commercial lighting needs. 2950K LED lighting lamps produce levels of brightness comparable to 7-watt incandescent festoon lamps up to 42 lumens. Our 6500K LED lighting lamps produce up to 50 lumens and produce a level of brightness and clarity that commercial and retail establishments find equal, if not superior, to more costly halogen and fluorescent light sources. Phantom strip lighting clients range from commercial entities such as jewelry storeowners, industrial manufacturing facilities, fine art galleries, on to residential arenas such as private art collections, bookshelf and fine furniture lighting, and task lighting for work areas and kitchens.If technology continues to evolve at its current pace, LED lighting lamps may soon replace all other forms of lighting. As energy prices continue to fluctuate problematically, the cost effectiveness of low-voltage lighting is readily apparent as an energy saver. Furthermore, as environmental awareness mounts worldwide, gasless lighting offers a green alternative to toxic gases used in older technologies. Reduced risk of fire hazard, lower maintenance costs, and longer burn time per unit offer added value to LED lamp lighting-all of which translates into reduced overhead and superior illumination throughout both industrial and commercial markets.

Many Eggs In Many Baskets

Many Eggs In Many Baskets

So youre lucky enough to be making a four figure income a month from adsense on your site or sites? Well, thats just great. I applaud you. But what happens if, for some unknown reason, that revenue was taken away from you? What would you do?We have all heard the horror stories. I hear one Id say once every day on the webmaster forums I frequent. Some poor webmaster gets the Blue Mail Of Death from Google TELLING them they clicked their own ads or they have been involved in some sort of click fraud. Then thats it. Game over. No more adsense. And to salt up the wound a little more, they keep whats in the account. Be it legit, or fraudulent. It seems too that Google like to top it off by waiting until payday to announce thisNow while this has never happened to me and while I find it hard to believe that the smart people over at Google are stupid enough to cancel accounts as blatantly and without much reason than above, this does appear to happen. (Id like to clarify here that I am only aware of one person/site that I am absolutely positive was banned for the wrong reasons)So what now?You can beg Google to let you back in, you can complain on the webmaster forums, you can bitch and moan. Thats about it.I have spoken to people that are 100% sure they are innocent and got their accounts reinstated by CALLING Google rather than mailing them.Call and ask for the highest position representative available, but be polite and explain your situation clearly. DO NOT piss Google off!Unless you had some sort of backup in place or contingency plan. You do have a contingency plan right? Try not to despair; there are a few other decent contextual ad companies out there. YPN appear to be good (I am Irish so I have no experience with them) and Adbrite have been nothing short of amazing for me.Anyway, getting back to my point. In this scenario, all eggs were in one virtual basket. If this was your entire business, its pretty much game over for you.Say for example, you were making $4000 a month with Google Adsense.Had you had spread your income out as follows:Google adsense: $500YPN: $500Direct Advertising: $1000Other: $1000You would only be down $500 a month. This would at least give you some time to research alternatives, or come up with some new ideas to fill in your revenue hole. I know this seems VERY obvious, but youd be surprised how many people I hear crying out for help in this department.I have my online businesses spread out amongst 4 contextual ad networks, 5 CPM/CPA networks, direct advertising, software sales, services and some small ecommerce. If one of these fails, or for some reason I am wrongfully accused by the powers that be, I still have the others.If you have all your virtual eggs on one virtual basket, I strongly urge you to start thinking about the worst case scenario and consider the possibility that the base of that basket may someday fall through.

Writing Eulogies That Honor Those Lost

Writing Eulogies That Honor Those Lost

Losing a family member or close friend can be devastating and can have a lasting effect on all who knew the person who has passed. Dealing with the loss of a loved one can be difficult and may require talking about your feelings, expressing your condolences to a family member or writing about your grief in a diary or blog. Funeral or memorial services are also a means to share in the pain and express love for the deceased in order to heal.One reason for the elaborate ceremonies around death is to help with that loss. Funeral rituals are designed to help ease the transition. In many cultures and religious traditions, part of these rituals is the delivery of a eulogy a short memorial message celebrating the persons accomplishments and important moments.If you have been asked to deliver a eulogy, appreciate the honor you have been given. You may feel that you are too sad or that you dont have the skills to write and deliver an appropriately moving tribute at a funeral or "memorial service" . If giving the eulogy is overwhelming to you, remember that while it may seem daunting, there are tips that can help you manage your anxiety and help you provide a service to both the living in their moment of loss and to the one you have lost.If you are asked to deliver a eulogy for someone you know, take a moment to sort out your feelings about the deceased and gather your thoughts. A eulogy is designed to memorialize and celebrate the good things in the persons life. Pulling together a selection of memories and comments about those things can be a remarkable way to begin to deal with your own grief. Also, ask other family members and friends to share their memories, anecdotes and stories of how that person touched their lives. Hearing and sharing these memories can help you create a more complete picture of the person for those who are hearing you.Once youve gathered your information, decide how you will organize it. Eulogies can take a chronological approach, where the eulogist traces the persons life in the order in which it happened. They can also be given as a story of a variety of portraits of important moments snapshots of tender times, gently humorous anecdotes, and the like. If more than one person is delivering a eulogy, coordinate with them so both approaches are used.If you find it hard to think of moving things to say, you may want to look at various sources for inspiration or short quotes to include in your speech. From the Bible or other religious texts to anthologies and websites of eulogy poetry and inspirational quotes, you may find the words you seek. Be careful, however, your own words are more important than anything you can find elsewhere. Keep the tone of the eulogy personal and use simple language so that the listeners can connect more directly to your words and the memories it conveys of the deceased. Typically, a eulogy runs around five to ten minutes in length.Giving a eulogy is an honor. It is a chance to help others begin the transition to a life after the persons passing. The eulogist has a chance to ease the pain of others by providing them with a picture of the best things about that person, something they can hold on to in the difficult days to follow. To be asked to deliver a memorial tribute is to be given the responsibility of assisting many. A little time and preparation in the writing stage can make a huge difference in the impact of your delivery and can help you and your friends and family in their time of need.~ Ben Anton, 2007

The Fax Machine Makeover

As technology keeps on advancing, some more modes of communication get obsolete. Newer and newer developments in the field of communication are emerging. Communication has reached a far more advanced state today than it ever has been. The bullock carts have been replaced by sports cars and jet planes. Real estate is no longer limited to the earth. The postal worker and his letters have already been replaced by the computer and email. In addition, landlines are now on a decline due to the rise of mobile phones. Times are changing and one cannot afford to stay put in the same place. One must adapt to and learn the benefits of the newest modes of communication on the block. Truly, when it comes to communication, one must not be unwilling to move with the times.Even when it comes to the good ol' fax machine, it has been given a great new look. Remember the old days when we had nothing other than the single fax machine to send out a fax to a client? Back then, we couldn't help obsess over the possibility of the fax not going due to a busy signal. Worse still, what if that fax number was out of order? Thank heavens that we no longer need to be stressed out by all those tensions.We are now able to see the emergence of the online faxing service. Yes, even the fax machine has become acquainted with the Internet now. I suppose, the fax machine companies have realized the danger of the Internet to the poor old fax machines. Moreover, what is the best way of combating this danger? Just take advice from some old sayings: If you cannot beat 'em, join 'em. The moment you make use of a premier fax service, you realize the fax companies have paid attention to the good old wisdom. And hey, it has borne fruit for faxing services everywhere.Email inboxes are now also in the process of emulating the fax machines of yesteryear. And email addresses have the facility of sending faxes to fax machines. An email to fax service. How easy that makes life. We just seem to have been given everything on a platter. Desktop faxes are what you can't do without anymore. A fax machine within your computer that does not interfere with the phone lines -- just what we've been waiting for. Moreover, as a result of the fax entering directly into your email box, confidentiality is maintained. All those people who love to nose through other people's faxes will have to look for something else to satiate their curiosity.
