HOW TO Stop Body Odor Naturally…

Step 1 – DEODORANT

If your deodorant isn’t able to stop body odor effectively for you, you don’t have to buy a more expensive brand. Simply apply a slightly heavier coat of deodorant than normal. Then, apply baking soda on top of that layer, like you were applying baby powder. Be careful not to inhale baking soda. It’s not toxic, but any lung contaminate can result in respiratory problems.

Step 2 – BAD BREATH

Try adding baking soda to your toothpaste, or purchase a toothpaste with baking soda as an ingredient. You can also mix half a teaspoon of baking soda with your mouthwash and use it to swish and gargle.

Step 3 – HAIR

Your hair traps odors and oils produced by your scalp. In fact, more body heat is released through your head than through any other part of your body. These oils not only look bad, but carry an unpleasant odor too.

Try adding a touch of baking powder to your grooming routine. In the shower, after washing and conditioning, mix a small amount of baking soda (2 tbs approximately) with enough water to create a paste. Apply this paste to your hair and massage in thoroughly. Allow to sit for 3 minutes, then rinse. Your hair may feel slick even after rinsing. This is because a small amount of baking soda will cling to your hair, helping to absorb odors throughout your day.

***NOTE*** If you are in a situation where showering is not an option, baking soda can be applied directly to your hair and combed through for a similar effect. Do not mix the baking soda with any water. Again, be careful not to inhale baking soda.

Step 4 – SHOES

You are probably aware that baking soda is a common additive to innersoles and other shoe inserts. However, you don’t need to purchase the insert to have the same odor fighting effects.

Pour enough baking soda into your shoes to coat the inner sides. Spread the baking soda on all inner sides of the shoe as though you were coating a baking pan with flour. Allow soda several hours to absorb odors. Then, turn shoe upside down over a trash bin and pat with your hand to remove excess powder. Repeat as often as you need to keep up with foot odor.

Step 5 – LAUNDRY

Adding baking soda to your laundry will help stop body odor. This method works best with natural fibers like cotton, denim blue jeans, linen.

WASH METHOD ~ Wash clothes as normal with regular detergent, but add 1/4 cup baking soda to the wash.

DRYER METHOD ~ Wash clothes as usual. Moisten a clean washcloth, sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of baking soda. Add the washcloth to the load in your dryer. Dry as usual. ***This method works best for ongoing prevention of body odor***

Step 6 – BATH

There are many benefits to adding soaking in a a baking soda bath. It will help relieve skin irritation, moisten your skin, relieve itch. It will also help fight odor.

Add 2 tablespoons of baking soda to a comfortably warm bath.

Step 7 – HAND ODOR

If you are one of many people who find that any odor your hands come in contact with is difficult to wash away, baking soda is the answer. Baking soda is highly effective in removing unpleasant smells like onion and garlic. Simply wet your hands, apply baking soda liberally, scrub, rinse. Odor is gone.

Tips & Warnings

– If skin irritation develops, discontinue use of baking soda.

– If you have existing skin conditions, consult your doctor before using baking soda in any of the methods described in this article.

– Do not expose eyes to baking soda.

– Do not inhale baking soda.

A Car Accident then came Success!!

Have you ever wondered how some of the worst things that happen in your life turn out to be some of the best experiences you’ve ever had?
 
Well, a fellow member of my church once told a story about one such experience that changed his life.
 
For years, he had difficulty saving to buy a house because something would always occur and consume more money than he had expected to spend.Despite his efforts he simply could not go long before spending the extra cash that he had saved.
 
Then one day a car accident badly damaged the car his wife was driving.Their mechanic estimated the cost of repairs at five thousand dollars. Unfortunately, they were presently in a financial bind and so the car would have to wait. After contemplating the situation he realized that they needed a solution to their financial problems. To remedy the situation he worked long and hard for weeks, saving and managing his money in a way he had never done previously. In a few months he had saved enough funds to have his wife’s car repaired.
 
Once the car was repaired he discussed with his wife how quickly they had put aside the money they needed. During their discussion his wife encouraged him to open a second account so they could continue to put away the same amount of money that we were saving every week for the car repair. This money would go towards the house they had always wanted to purchase
 
He was convinced that if he could save thousand of dollars in a few months he could eventually save enough to buy a house. For many years they had both wanted to buy their dream house but could not seem to come up with the down payment. However, in a little over a year he had saved more than twenty thousand dollars and was able to make the down payment.. He had done something in a short while that he had failed to accomplish in his previous attempts to properly handle his finances
 
Consequently, this man’s experiences gave him a different feeling about money. He and his wife have continued to maintain their second account. This time they have decided to start saving for their retirement, putting away just a little less every week than they did for their house.
 
One man embraced a new set of traits because he had a goal that was imperative for him to achieve-he made a plan to achieve it and followed through. The experience of a single misfortune taught him a valuable lesson and challenged him to reprogram his saving, and spending habits.In the process he also changed his family’s life. He now enjoys the material benefits along with a sense of accomplishment and pride
 
The value of making the most of our experiences is that they teach us lessons about life- about failures, successes, and everything in between….
 
In the midst of our challenges always remember success often comes in disguise.

Fish Oil – Sure it’s Good for You

1. Less Pain and Inflammation.
Omega 3 fatty acids, particularly EPA, have a very positive effect on your inflammatory response. Through several mechanisms, they regulate your body’s inflammation cycle, which prevents and relieves painful conditions like arthritis, prostatitis, cystitis and anything else ending in “itis.”
 
2. Cardiovascular Health.
Omega 3 fatty acids have also been proven to work wonders for your heart and the miles and miles of arteries and veins that make up your cardiovascular system. They help to lower cholesterol, tryglicerides, LDLs and blood pressure, while at the same time increasing good HDL cholesterol. This adds years to your life expectancy.
 
3. Protection from Stroke and Heart Attack.
 When plaque builds up on arterial walls and then breaks loose, it causes what’s known as a thrombosis, which is a fancy way of saying clot. If a clot gets stuck in the brain, it causes a stroke and when it plugs an artery, it causes a heart attack. Research shows omega 3 fatty acids break up clots before they can cause any damage.
 
4. Better Brain Function and Higher Intelligence.
Pregnant and nursing mothers can have a great impact on the intelligence and happiness of their babies by supplementing with fish oil. For adults, omega 3 improves memory, recall, reasoning and focus. You’ll swear you’re getting younger and smarter.
 
5. Less Depression and Psychosis.
 Making you smarter is not all omega 3 does for your brain. Psychiatry department researchers at the University of Sheffield, along with many other research studies, found that omega 3 fish oil supplements “alleviate” the symptoms of depression, bipolar and psychosis (Journal of Affective Disorder Vol. 48(2-3);149-55).
 
6. Lower Incidence of Childhood Disorders.
Just to show how fish oil fatty acids leave nobody out, studies show that children (and adults) with ADD and ADHD experience a greatly improved quality of life. And those with dyslexia, dyspraxia and compulsive disorders have gotten a new lease on life thanks to omega 3 oils.
 
7. Reduction of Breast, Colon and Prostate Cancer. And finally, omega 3 fish oil has been shown to help prevent three of the most common forms of cancer – breast, colon and prostate. Science tells us that omega 3s accomplish this in three ways. They stop the alteration from a normal healthy cell to a cancerous mass, inhibiting unwanted cellular growth and causing apoptosis, or cellular death, of cancer cells.

Indian Stock market make History on 18/05/2009

The trading on the BSE and NSE was halted for the full day as the markets hit the 20 per cent circuit breaker after they reopened at 11:55 am. The Sensex zoomed 2,110 points to 14,284 while the Nifty touched 4,323, up 651 points. This is for the first time that trading was halted for the full day on the BSE and the NSE. The near-decisive mandate for the UPA in the polls brought cheers on the Dalal Street, with investors hoping for a stable government that would take more steps to restore the India growth story again. The markets had hit the upper circuit within minutes after opening and then trade had to be halted for two hours till 11:55 am. And when trading resumed again, it hit the circuit breaker again. On the sectoral indices front, the BSE realty index jumped 15.8 per cent and the BSE bankex rose 13.6 per cent. The BSE capital goods index and the BSE metal index surged over 12.3 per cent each. The oil & gas index on the BSE advanced 11.9 per cent. Raamdeo Agrawal, director at Motilal Oswal Securities, said that Indian markets are poised to move up sharply and it is time to get back to investing aggressively into markets. Meanwhile, Morgan Stanley raised its 2009 Sensex target to 15,300, after a near-decisive mandate for the UPA. It also raised GDP forecast and earnings growth of Sensex companies. Among the Sensex stocks, BHEL rose 32 per cent to Rs 2,266 and L&T advanced 29.5 per cent to Rs 1280.00. DLF and ICICI Bank also jumped over 25 per cent each. Reliance Industries also surged over 20 per cent. Shankar Sharma, director at First Global, said it is important to book profits after the sharp rally. The other stocks that saw whopping gains were IBREL and IVRCL Infra. The counters jumped more than 38 per cent each. The BSE implements on a quarterly basis the index based market wide circuit breaker system, which is applicable at three stages of the index movement either way at 10 per cent, 15 per cent and 20 per cent. This circuit breaker brings about a coordinated trading halt in all equity and equity derivative markets nationwide. The market wide circuit breakers would be triggered by movement of either Sensex or the NSE S&P CNX Nifty whichever is breached earlier. In case of a 10% movement of either of these indices, there would be a 1-hour market halt if the movement takes place before 1 p.m. In case the movement takes place at or after 1 p.m. but before 2.30 p.m. there will be a trading halt for 1½ hour. In case the movement takes place at or after 2.30 p.m. there will be no trading halt at the 10% level and the market will continue trading. In case of a 15% movement of either index, there will be a 2-hour market halt if the movement takes place before 1 p.m. If the 15% trigger is reached on or after 1 p.m. but before 2 p.m., there will be a 1 hour halt. If the 15% trigger is reached on or after 2 p.m. the trading will halt for the remainder of the day. In case of a 20% movement of the index, the trading will be halted for the remainder of the day. The percentages are calculated on the closing index value of the quarter. These percentages are translated into absolute points of index variations (rounded off to the nearest 25 points in case of Sensex). At the end of each quarter, these absolute points of index variations are revised and made applicable for the next quarter. On March 31, 2009, the last trading day of the quarter, Sensex closed at 9708.50 points. The absolute points of Sensex variation (over the previous day’s closing Sensex) which would trigger market wide circuit breaker for any day in the quarter between 1st April 2009 and 30th June 2009 would be as under

Difference among Resume C.V. and BioData

People use the words RESUME, C.V., and BIO-DATA interchangeably for the document highlighting skills, education, and experience that a candidate submits when applying for a job. On the surface level, all the three mean the same. However, there are intricate differences.

 

RESUME

Resume Is a French word meaning “summary”, and true to the word meaning, signifies a summary of one’s employment, education, and other skills, used in applying for a new position. A resume seldom exceeds one side of an A4 sheet, and at the most two sides. They do not list out all the education and qualifications, but only highlight specific skills customized to target the job profile in question. A resume is usually broken into bullets and written in the third person to appear objective and formal. A good resume starts with a brief Summary of Qualifications, followed by Areas of Strength or Industry Expertise in keywords, followed by Professional Experience in reverse chronological order. Focus is on the most recent experiences, and prior experiences summarized. The content aims at providing the reader a balance of responsibilities and accomplishments for each position. After

Work experience come Professional Affiliations, Computer Skills, and Education

 

C.V CURRICULUM VITAE

 C.V. is a Latin word meaning “course of life”. Curriculum Vitae (C.V.) is therefore a regular or particular course of study pertaining to education and life. A C.V. is more detailed than a resume, usually 2 to 3 pages, but can run even longer as per the requirement. A C.V. generally lists out every skills, jobs, degrees, and professional

affiliations the applicant has acquired, usually in chronological order. A C.V. displays general talent rather than specific skills for any specific positions.

 

BIO-DATA

Bio Data the short form for Biographical Data, is the old-fashioned terminology for Resume or C.V. The emphasis in a bio data is on personal particulars like date of birth, religion, sex, race, nationality, residence, martial status, and the like. Next comes a chronological listing of education and experience. The things normally found in a resume, that is specific skills for the job in question comes last, and are seldom included. Bio-data also includes applications made in specified formats as required by the company.

A resume is ideally suited when applying for middle and senior level positions, where experience and specific skills rather than education is important. A C.V., on the other hand is the preferred option for fresh graduates, people looking for a career change, and those applying for academic positions. The term bio-data is mostly used in India while applying to government jobs, or when applying for research grants and other situations where one has to submit descriptive essays.

Resumes present a summary of highlights and allow the prospective employer to scan through the document visually or electronically, to see if your skills match their available positions. A good resume can do that very effectively, while a C.V. cannot. A bio-data could still perform this role, especially if the format happens to be the one recommended by the employer.

Personal information such as age, sex, religion and others, and hobbies are never mentioned in a resume. Many people include such particulars in the C.V. However, this is neither required nor considered in the US market. A Bio-data, on the other hand always include such personal particulars.

The Success Secret of a 9 Year Old – story

When I was 9 years old, one of my favorite meals was sausages and mash potato. The only problem with this meal was that it usually came with brocolli.
 
Each time I was faced with this meal, I would enjoy my sausages and mash potato and then toy with my brocolli in the hope that it would eventually get cold and I wouldn’t have to finish it. This approach transformed dinner into a long and drawn out process.
 
Then one day, my best friend whose name was Sean Sullivan came over to my house for the day to play. When it came time for dinner, Mum made us sausages, mash potato and brocolli.
 
As I stated eating my sausages and mash potato, my friend Sean did something that completely amazed me:
 
– He ate all his brocolli first without touching his sausages or mash potato.
 
I couldn’t believe it!
 
I thought he was crazy until I got to the point where I was toying with my brocolli and realised that he was now enjoying his sausages and mash potato.
 
On that day I learnt a lesson that I have never forgotten and that I still use every day. The lesson was this:
 
When faced with a list of things to do, always do the hardest task first.
 
Here’s what this means in the real world:
 
Each morning when you check your daily To Do list, you will notice that some of the items on your list will be easy to do but will only have a relatively small impact on achieving your goals. Other items which are usually more difficult to do will have a much bigger impact on moving you forward.
 
One of the most effective ways to increase your overall productivity is to start your day by working on the difficult tasks that will make a real difference to your progress.
 
To do this, you must resist the temptation to “Just do the easy things first ” because often this means that you keep putting off the high impact tasks that will really make a difference to achieving your goals.
 
Another advantage of ‘eating your brocolli first’ is that when you are feeling less productive at the end of the day, you are often still able to complete the easy tasks on your To Do list.
 
So today, I’d like to encourage you to prioritise your To Do list based on the impact each item will have on achieving your goals and follow the example of my 9 year old friend and learn to eat your brocolli first.
