By Brook Myers

Whiplash is a severe affliction caused through traffic accidents, it's generally caused by a vehicle suddenly jerking forward, either because of road situations, or someone just slamming on the brakes too hard. This is how someone ends up with a compensation claims process on their hands.

Around 120,000 adults and children every year are [reported said]to have whiplash, and because of the huge strain it places on the back, anyone affected with it, are unable to function, as 24 hours of bed rest is advised for anyone who have been afflicted.

It's advised that after an incident like this occurs, you should first see a physician, then you need to carry out the treatment they prescribe, because it may be vital for the future. That is of course if you don't wish for your spine to hurt for the remainder of your life.

Ways To Protect Your Intellectual Property

By Levy Hans

Even intangible property like ideas having commercial worth require safeguarding from people who could misuse them for their benefit without the consent of the creator or owner. Intellectual property or IP rights enable you to protect your idea legally as well as to take action against violators. Some of the options for safeguarding your interest in your intellectual property are mentioned below.

First and foremost, you should ensure that no person other than you has a comprehensive knowledge of the idea that needs to be protected. You need to be very careful about the details of your idea, while sharing it with others, especially on unsecured mediums such as internet. If you want to share your idea with your colleagues through email, you must ensure that your account is secured with a strong password.

It is good to be personally conscious of some of the fundamental intellectual property laws. This legal understanding will aid you in shaping your company's policies to guard your intellectual property and prosecute those who try to take undue advantage of it. For example, if you engage a team to further improve upon your idea, you can make the members of the team know that what you are providing them is classified information. One way of ensuring confidentiality is by asking all the associates to sign non-disclosure agreement, so that you can turn to legal action if required.

It is always recommended to take suggestion from a lawyer, who can figure out specific provisions of law for protecting your rights. The related laws can many times be quite complicated and it is always better to rely on an intellectual property lawyer for these issues. The law expert will be able to instruct you on how to patent or copyright your work so that no infringement takes place.

It is important to remember that the nascent stages of the idea development are the most appropriate time for hiring an IP lawyer. An early application for patent or copyright can save you a lot of time and effort later.

Tips on Prospecting To Generate New Leads

By Head Rocha

You know how hard it is to start that daily commitment to exercise. Well, proactive prospecting seems to be as difficult. We know it is something we must do to gain positive results yet most sales people will try to avoid prospecting like the plague.

We need to have a starting point. Begin by blocking out one or two hours per day to prospect. Yes, we have put it off long enough. Start by using your sphere of influence to prospect. Prospecting, like anything will require commitment and discipline. This time is yours and you are important. Once you start you will feel more important and this will be a positive projection of your attitude when you talk with your sphere of influence.

Write down what you are going to say and practice saying it to yourself in the mirror. You will come across more confident to the person on the other side of the phone. Consider talking about something of value to the customer. It might be something related to the economy or the real estate housing market. People love knowledge and education. Provide them with information that will draw their interest.

Accurately define your target market before you begin. Determine how many calls you will make in that hour or two. Some sale people will call until they get an appointment or make the sale. Or you could decide to make 20 calls in that allotted time. Whatever you feel comfortable with and reasonable within the time allocated.

I would highly suggest having a database of at least one month's supply of names. The time allocated for prospecting should not be wasted looking up names or deciding at that moment who you are going to talk to next. Be prepared and watch how much more productive you will become.

Work without interruption. Do not take calls or schedule meetings during your scheduled prospecting time. Take full advantage of the prospecting learning curveas with any repetitive task, the more often you repeat it during a contiguous block of time, the better you become. Prospecting is no exception to the rule. Your second call will be better than your first, your third better than the second, and so on.

Consider prospecting during off peak hours when conventional prospecting times don't work. Some of your best work will be done between 8:00 AM and 9:00 AM, between 12:00 PM and 1:00 PM, and between 5:00 PM and 6:30 PM. Vary your call times. We are all creatures of habit. So are your prospects. In all likelihood, they are attending the same meeting each Monday at 10:00 AM (or whatever time you can't seem to connect with them). If you cannot get through at this time, call this particular person in your sphere of influence at other times during the day or on other days.

Don't stop. Persistence is one of the key virtues in selling success. Most sales/valuable contacts are made after the fifth call, and most sales people quit after the first.

How Productive is Your Time? Here Are Some of the Top Timewasters

By Deleon Shaw

There is only one measurement where we are all equal, and that is in the amount of time each of us is given per day. It's the same 24 hours we all get to invest in whatever manner we think is best. We've all been reminded to "work smart" instead of "working hard", but few understand the difference. Our personal strategies of time management may vary, but we can agree that everyone should be constantly looking for ways to improve their individual performance.

One of the most popular "timewasters" is Procrastination. How many times have we told ourselves, "This project can wait until tomorrow?" We find ourselves practicing this constantly, whether it's an exercise program, a plan to quit smoking or getting rid of the clutter of paper on our desk. Procrastination seems inevitable when we are setting goals or proactively working our business plan.

LACK OF SELF-DISCIPLINE. We are blessed or cursed, depending on your viewpoint, with a non-negotiable need for discipline in our jobs. We might be Independent Contractors, have a Home Based business or work for a Corporation at home. Since we probably don't punch a time clock, and are somewhat out of sight most of the time, we are responsible first to ourselves to provide the proper mindset of success and the energy necessary to accomplish our goals.

We tend to get so caught up with our customers and clients and want to provide them with the best service possible. This will at time give us the inability to say "NO". We can accomplish this tactfully without disrespect to our customers or clients. We are terrified we might lose our customer or their business. We have to be confident in ourselves and this will project through to the client. There will be time we have to say "NO" when a customer is possibly asking for major concessions, a price reduction or additional services.

We most likely communicate with all different types of clientele. Evaluate the current business model you are using and determine if improvements can be made to become more organized. Improved organizational skills will save you critical production time and increase your net worth.

Ever hear, "Don't bite off more than you can chew"? Again, another huge timewaster and we are all responsible for it. By attempting to do more than we can handle, will make our time even more unproductive. Look at your written goals and analyze them cautiously. This will help maintain your control of time and will help you reach your target faster.

Goal setting is vital to our business growth and development. Without written goals there are no objectives. Clearly understanding the importance of this will lead you to the path of success. Daily review of your goals and objectives will keep you focused. We are repeatedly interrupted and are bombarded with distractions each day and must stay focused.

Our time is valuable and cannot be replaced. Once used, we cannot get it back. What we do with our time is a personal choice and must be measured to perfection. We are rewarded for our performances and controlling how we use our time, will effectively eradicate the "time wasters". By doing so, could be the difference between a "weak" performance and a "superior" performance.

Meet Herb Vaporizers

By Johnny Miller

Are you familiar with the herbal vaporizer? If you are not, well this is a great time to be acquainted with it.

Herb vaporizers are devices ran by electricity or battery power and they can heat the herbs and let the active ingredients be released through a vapor. So if it's a cannabis or a tobacco fix you're waiting for, you can just buy vaporizers and you can get your fix easily. But that's for the weed and nicotine addicts. For fixes like those, most addicts simply smoke cigarettes or rolled weeds but that's harmful because of the actual act of burning. So if you want to get the normal fix without burning, you must just use herb vaporizers. Vaporizing helps you get your fix without the detriments of burning such as tar, carbon monoxide, carcinogens and other forms of toxins. This way, there are no toxins and no second hand smoke. It's win-win for all.

Since it is known that vaporizing is truly a better alternative to smoking, there are no bans against vaporizing. However, what you need to pay attention to, though, is if cannabis is legal in your country. If it is not, even if you use a vaporizer to get your fix, you are still violating laws. Better be safe than sorry.

Now that it's pretty clear that vaporizing is a better method than smoking, there are no laws against vaporizing. The only thing, that you might need to note, though, is if weed or cannabis is legal in your area. If it's illegal, then you CANNOT make it acceptable through the mere act of vaporizing. So be warned early. On a different note, herb vaporizers are not just used for nicotine and weed fixes. There are also relaxation benefits which you can get from vaporizing. In fact, there are numerous homes, wellness centers, spas and even hospitals which use high quality digital vaporizers to utilize the therapeutic benefits of the aromas of chamomile, rosemary, lavender and other herbs of the same nature.

So how does the vaporizing process work exactly? Here's a quick low-down. First, the herb vaporizer heats up the herb. There are three methods used for heating. The first one is through thermal conduction. In this method, the herbs will be placed on a heated metal plate and it will eventually heat up. The next method is convection. With convection, the herbs will be heated with just hot air passing over and there will be no contact with the herb. The last method is called thermal radiation, which, as the name implies, uses light or radiation to heat the herbs up. When the herbs are heated, the vapor will form. If you wish to inhale it ASAP, you may use the tube to inhale it. If you wish to inhale it later, you can store it through a jar or a bag, which the vaporizer houses.

Even when you buy the best vaporizer, it is important that the temperature that will heat your vaporizer to will be verified. If the heat levels are low, vapors will be simply therapeutic and they might not contain the active substances of the herbs you're using. If such substances are not present, then there won't be a physiological effect. On the other hand, if the heat levels are high, the active substances will be IN the vapor and you will inhale them in high density.

So that's it for the usage and performance of herb vaporizers. Be sure to get yourself a very good brand!

The Results Of Getting An LCD HDTV

By Lillian Sheriff

Today is a very good time to buy a high quality television set that will last a long time for a very reasonable price. In growing technology, TV also improves very fast, the new HDTV broadcasting format becomes more standardized so the prices may fall but not too much.

What are our thoughts on LCD HDTVs? What makes them so special, and what should you look for when buying one?

It was a natural decision to adapt LCD technologies to HDTV format after LCD monitors have been used with computers for several years now. As compared to projection TVs and the earlier CRT television sets, the LCD TVs are a lot slender in size and weigh considerably less, thus making them perfect for use in smaller sized rooms where larger TV sets could not be accommodated before TVs with LCD or plasma technology were introduced in the market.

Many people even mount LCD screens to the wall using special brackets that hold them securely in place, and this is perhaps the ultimate in space saving design. If you have such a great, eye-pleasing monitor you now need to have programming that takes full advantage of the screen's viewing capability, and that's where HDTV comes in.

It is two technologies that were meant for each other. HDTV allows television broadcasting to be sent in a signal which is very dense with digital information about the video as well as sound. Compared to the former analog method of TV broadcasts, this is a huge advancement.

In fact, the HDTV signal can carry up to ten times as much screen resolution information as an old analog signal. For a complete viewing experience, the combination of rich resolution and a LCD screen that displays the sharpest picture available, this set provides consumers exactly what they are looking for.

When you are purchasing a LCD TV, you need to make sure that it is equipped with a HDTV tuner or that it is "HDTV Ready" so that your cable or satellite can be hooked up to allow you to receive HDTV programming.

Viewing programs with the combined technologies of HDTV and a LCD monitor will make you wonder how you could be without it till now.

Home Made Power Plant Review - Is It Worth It?

By Tim McDonald


Before starting to read the Home Made Power Plant guide, we thought the claims were far-fetched and too good to be true, but once we received the download, the advice was accurate and easy to follow. If you you are one those do-it-yourself type of people, you will love this guide - but you may have to figure a few things out on your own, since support was quick but not very helpful in their reply.

What we like about it:

1: The best diagrams

Home Made Power Plant definitely had the best illustrations. The diagrams for the solar power instructions were colorful, large enough to actually see, mainly to scale, correctly labeled, and really easy to follow.

2: Nice Freebies

Home Made Power Plant came with some great freebies. It showed how to maintain our systems and what legal issues we may have to consider. But what what really impressed us, were the power-saving tips. Just using those alone, we have saved almost $300 dollars in power bills over the past 5 months.

3: Improves your home's value:

We have to admit that this advantage actually applies to all the diy energy guides on the market, but it is a huge plus. We were told that renewable energy systems add value to your home. We were not so sure that was true, so we decided to get the house valued before and after. We were really amazed! After adding 2 home wind turbines and 2 solar power systems, they had added $5000 to the value of our home. The funny thing was that the valuer thought the systems were professionally installed!

Problems with the guide:

1 - Poor customer support

We did run into a few problems with customer support. We could not figure out the best way to wire up the solar power system. When we contacted support, they were not very helpful. They simply replied with something like, "It has all been explained in the guide". But our situation was unique and they never seemed to realize that. So we eventually worked it our ourselves.


With great diagrams, and interesting additional information, Home Made Power Plant is a well-written guide that even a non-technical person can understand. The plans were fairly easy to follow, and although we never had a good experience with customer support, at least they were quick to reply.

Professional Negligence - The Basics

By Simon P Jennings

The act of neglecting clients by professionals such as doctors, advocated, accountants, and architects is known as professional negligance. Whether this neglect has stemed out of a mindful and intended motive is irrelevant when it comes to the establishment of this act.

Such carelessness can be very expensive for the professionals. If a client or an employee is not satisfied by the professionalism of an individual, they could, and probably would, file a law suit against you for professional negligence. Although such lawsuits are mostly filed by clients, it is also very likely that they will be filed by employees against employers. If the later is the case, then you should pay heed to the following basics, because a suit filed by an employee is disgraceful, and will also create a negitive impact on other employees.

The professionals may find it cumbersome to defend such law suits. The employees or clients who sue are often prejudiced rather than objective. This is the rule rather than the exception. One must try to find witnesses to testify in favour of the case of an individual. It could be a colleague who knows one well, or an established authority in the field. If such people could testify that the charges of professional negligence are baseless, it could give significant weight to the case. Although one must be thoroughly prepared for witnesses who are testifying against the case.

There are steps that one can take to rule out such horrid ends. Foremost of all, the quality of work of an individual should be of such a high standard that it entirely leaves out any chances of employees, colleagues, or clients being dissatisfied, or left feeling neglected. Concern towards them will allow the professional to live in a relaxed manner with peace of mind.

Another very important point to consider is that any relationship that a professional has, be it with a client, or an employee should be of respect. This way, you will be conscious of the needs, and requirements of the clients and employees, and pay heed to what they think. If we take the example of doctors, it is very important to listen to what the patient is saying, answer each question, and do not lose your patience, no matter how futile the questions might be.

An extension to the previous line of reasoning, it is also crucial to give your professional opinion in various things. One should give the risks, and the benefits of the options that arise in discussions. If for example, a client says that he/she wants a basement right under the staircase, it is the duty of the architect to adhere to their wishes. However, this certainly does not mean that they do everything as the client says. They have to give their professional opinion; if the flooring will not support the staircase, one should inform the client beforehand.

Furthermore, another way through which to satisfy clients is through being organised. Such a skill speaks volumes about professionalism, and keeps both clients and employees happy. Through this practice of meticulous records and files, one can easily attend to their needs, and satisfy them to the best of his knowledge.

In conclusion, it is essential to remind the professional once more that his clients and employees have rights upon him. Therefore, he must make sure that no act of his ever impinges on their rights. All of this is not being said to make the professional unnecessarily wary. It is being said to advise him to employ caution, so that he may never have to face the horrid possibility of defending himself in a courtroom.

Revealing Four Best Learn Japanese Courses

By Miriam Price

Most people cite having a lack of time, as being the main factor that keeps them from learning another language. They simply cannot imagine driving off after work to sit in a class to be added to their already busy schedule. On top of all that, their money has been budgeted for other things. This is very discouraging for those who truly feel they could benefit from the study of Japanese language, but the good news is now there's an alternative. Software based courses are available that can give you the opportunity to learn Japanese through a variety of media enhanced exercises and lessons. There are many such programs to choose from, and considering the convenience they offer, it's no wonder they are rapidly growing in popularity. However, choosing the right program for you might seem a bit difficult, so how about starting off by reading through the following reviews of the four top Japanese language learning software packages.

1st - Rocket Japanese. Don't buy Rocket Japanese just because it outsells its competitors; buy the software program because it is the most cost effective. For only $99, you will also receive lifetime upgrades so you know that your software will never be outdated. The program contains 31 effective tracks that teach you about Japanese speech, way of life, and correspondence. Rocket Japanese, however, provides you with a tutor and a whole host of activities and courses that will help you learn how to read Japanese. These activities and courses were created to help the student better retain what they have learned.

2nd - Rosetta Stone. With this program you will quickly learn how to speak Japanese. But don't take our word for it. The program allows you to monitor your own progress with convenient tests after each new segment. Unlike in traditional classes, this program gives you the flexibility and control to learn in your own time!

3rd. Pimsleur Japanese. This is an extensive language program that serves learners in three different levels. The effectiveness of this program has been scientifically explained in the following manner: it reduces the amount of time it takes to learn a language by only using words actually spoken by native Japanese people. From the beginning, students are immersed into Japanese conversations, thus introducing them to Japanese language syntax and structure.

4th - Complete Learning Suite. This Japanese language course has consistently been included in the top consumer review websites. That is because it provides a complete curriculum and a long itemized activities that will help you speak and understand Japanese at the shortest of time. It is one of the flourishing programs in aiding vocabulary and conversation practice.


While Complete Learning Suite provides a complete Asian acquisition course, it lacks instruction or meaning materials, especially on Japanese alphabets. It also leaves little training on how to feature Japanese characters. With Rocket Japanese, you are presented a tutor that integrates fun games with your acquisition experiences. This is its technique of establishing better retention. For instance, its MegaHirana mettlesome code presents a broad acquisition agency for datum Hirana characters. Pimsleur may be superior when it comes to thoroughness and effectiveness in language teaching, but it may be too much considering the amount of poverty in Asia today. Rosetta Stone Japanese language instruction presents a great acquisition course, but it lacks transmission and connectivity as MP3 frequency capabilities, which could have made acquisition more flexible. With Rocket Japanese's $100 value, you get a complete acquisition package with lifetime free updates.

You can go about and do it in many easy ways. You can easily overcome all your doubts and hesitation if you follow these steps and apply for scholarships.

Once you visit a scholarship website, you should always carefully read the content and the indirect reference hidden inside the content. You should first read and understand the content and then act according to the instructions. For later, you should remember to use websites that are easy to use.

The first step is to stop wasting your precious time, on a website where you cannot find what you were looking for, then you should avoid wasting time and move on to the next website. A good web site does not let the user take more than five minutes for the necessary information.

If on an easy scholarship website, you cannot find the required information you are seeking, you should quit looking there and try to find it elsewhere, as that website will be of no use to you in terms of financial assistance.

After finding an easy scholarship website, it is simple to inform other students about easy scholarships and to apply for it. By doing so, you are also saving the time they would have spent to find the sites through the internet, and in a way you are helping your fellow students.

You will encounter another important feature of doing this as some websites about easy scholarships are not so popular and unclaimed due to wrong marketing and publicity methods used for them. But some links are useful to help locate the easy scholarship websites posted on the internet.

These scholarships are called easy scholarships because even though they are put together by local companies and organizations and may not provide huge funding but they are relatively easy to find and apply.

Your school counselor can also guide you and help you find the right scholarship for you, so you can avoid wasting your time with the dingy ones that you do not need.

Now that you know how you can find easy scholarships through websites and you should always remember to help others as you go along and make progress in this regard.

You should apply and start using easy scholarships for the betterment of your professional life coming ahead of you.

Whey Protein Creates a Lean Body

By Nathaniel Millsby PHD

Protein powder can be an extremely effective tool in helping you build muscle mass, but it's not a miracle worker. A scoop of most protein powders, for example, is about 20 grams of protein, that's the same as a 3-ounce chicken breast. So it's no miracle worker.

Dairy products as well as eggs, cottage cheese, soy and vegetable protein also contain good amounts of protein. Nevertheless, none of these sources compares in quality or ease of use like whey protein. Whey protein has the highest value in providing branched-chain amino acids, which result in building and retaining muscle tissue.

Whey protein (the highest quality and best form of protein) is incredible stuff. It provides the body with the necessary building blocks to produce amino acids that are used for building muscle tissue. Whoa! Nearly every bodybuilder knows the importance of protein supplementation.

Studies have been conducted that compare whey protein to other sources. They have found that whey protein contains the perfect combination of overall amino acid makeup... and in just the right concentrations for optimal performance in the body.

Luckily, it has been found that most varied diets - including vegan get plenty of protein through daily intake of various food combinations. However, some people like to supplement their protein intake, or occasionally substitute a fast, easy protein shake for a meal.

A lot of people struggle with getting enough protein at their breakfast. Stir that protein powder into your milk, pour that over your cereal, perfect. Stir it into your oatmeal.

So using it strategically to boost the protein at certain times of the day you need is gonna help you then increase recovery, increase muscle mass, increase strength.

But just because you use a protein powder, if you're using it in replacement of another meal, it's not gonna be a miracle worker. It's not automatically gonna make you stronger, faster, leaner.

Protein powder is designed to be taken everyday as a dietary supplement. Even if you aren't a bodybuilder, starting your day with a protein powder shake can provide nutritional benefits. While many nutritionists advise consuming protein throughout the day, a healthy boost of protein first thing in the morning can stabilize your blood sugar levels throughout the rest of the day.

Real Estate Investing Marketing: The 2 Secrets to Success

By Nancy Geils

"We buy homes for cash" - Everyone has seen those small signs around neighborhoods. There's a reason why there are so many: It's because they work. Direct mail works, too.

But what if you want to let people know that you are a real estate investor and you'd like to buy an inexpensive home for cash? What should you do? Will your small "we buy homes for cash" sign be seen beside all the others?

Here are 2 secrets that you need to know in order to successfully market your real estate business:

When there are a dozen of those "we buy homes for cash" signs on the street corner, it's hard to see the difference between one and another. But if you have yours in the window of a store or on the side of your car or on a free mug that you fill with candy and leave on the doorsteps of homes in your target neighborhood, you're setting yourself apart. You're being different. When you do that, you're likely to be heard above the noise. It's not that your message is any different, it's just that you're reaching your target market in a way that no one else is.

How else can you be successful in this way? If no one else is doing postcards, do a postcard. If no one else is hiring a clown to go door to door to hand out flyers, do that. Do whatever it takes to look different from your competitors.

When you are marketing your business to people, remember to always keep coming back to the fundamental acronym: WIIFM. That means "What's in it for me?" and the "me" in this acronym is your audience. Don't go to a homeowner who is down on his or her luck and say "I'd like to earn an income by selling your home to someone else. That's focused on you! Instead, say "I'd like to help you get back on your financial feet." Notice the difference?

It works the same for everyone else, too. When you approach a bank, remember that their primary concern is trying to recapture as much of that money as possible. Going through a foreclosure for them is extremely expensive so you can point out to them that you can make it cheaper by taking a property off their hands.

Remember these two important secrets and you'll never miss out on potential business again!

Wearing Khakis will be more beneficial to you for healing and relief instead of jeans. The more air that can hit the area, the faster they will heal and the more relief you will get.

Changing your diet will help you reduce the chance of repeat hemorrhoids. If you add more grains and fiber into your diet, it will help with your digestive system. This will also put less strain on your body during bowel movements. Everyone reacts to a change in diet differently, so if your dealing with persistent hemorrhoids, you can think about what you've been eating that might be causing it.

Should You Get a Solar Hot Tub?

By Stanley Gerterd

If you are trying to save money on electricity you might be interested in getting a solar powered hot tub instead of a regular type. One concern of any new hot tub owner is always how much the heating bill will be for the hot tub and is there any way to reduce it? On the surface, a solar hot tub sounds like it might be a solution but is it really going to work and save energy like you want it to?

Hot tubs typically don't completely turn off and maintain the temperature at a high level so the unit is always using power to some degree. This is actually cheaper than turning off the power and letting the water cool between uses. One thing any hot tub needs to keep in the heat and use the least power is a cover that traps the heat. If you have a cover that does not do the job, you will have costly heat loss that will use unnecessary energy.

Some hot tub covers have solar cells on them to assist with maintaining the heat but of course you need to live in a sunny climate for this type of cover to be effective. If you dont live somewhere where the sun is out frequently, any sort of solar accessories for your hot tub will probably be a waste. The reason why the manufacturers don't make solar tubs is this very reason that most people don't live in a place where there is sun year round.

If you do have a lot of sun, is it really worth the extra price you might pay to get one? Will you truly save energy and how long will it take for you to recoup the extra dollars you might have to spend to get one? These are questions you should research before you spend too much time and money equiping your hot tub with solar cells. Solar cells are usually expensive so you have to know what you are doing first.

Of course, if you are just trying to save energy and go green you will not care about the money savings or whether it is truly economical. But solar hot tubs are kind of like the hybrid car in that they might not be worth it in the end. Now that gasoline prices have gone back down, sales of hybrid cars have plummeted because they are so much more expensive and not worth the extra investment. Solar hot tubs are probably much the same in that you may never get your money back in energy savings.

Procedure For Registering A Trademark

By Laarni Brown

A trademark is a key intellectual property right that helps in protecting the ownership that a company or any other body has over its brand name or symbol. For legal validity of trademarks, they need to be duly registered with the appropriate authority. A registered trademark serves as a notice of its approval by law, thereby preventing any unscrupulous persons from making use of it as it is or in any form that may have a close resemblance such that it can be confused with the original mark.

It is advisable to have your brand name duly registered as soon as you have made a final decision on it. If you delay the registration, there is a chance that someone else will register a similar or even the exact name before you and you will have to relinquish your right of its use.

Firstly, you have to undertake an extensive check on the existing names to verify if the name you want to use is available. You must undertake a comprehensive search for similar trademarks duly registered by other companies to find out whether your trademark will be unique. The database maintained by the registration office can help you figure this out.

The next step is getting the required form for registration and filling up information like the name of your firm, the type of product or service that it offers, and your official address. The form duly filled in should be then submitted with the specified amount of registration fee. However, you should keep in mind that if you fail to do the needed check, then your application will not be accepted and your application fee will also not be refunded.

After your are done with these formalities, you might be required to answer certain queries from the authorities. Such questions are required to be answered within a certain specified time. If your application is accepted, the authorities will provide you with a certificate stating the necessary details of your trademark that will give you all legal rights over your trademark along with right to sue for infringement.

Creative Real Estate Investing For The Skilled Investor

By Nathan Williams

Creative real estate investing is a different way of obtaining real estate than traditional methods. Most buyers will obtain a mortgage from a bank and provide a down payment. Some buyers will pay cash but most buyers don't have a lot of money laying around.

One method of creative real estate investing is an option. This is when the property is being sold to a buyer at a specified price or strike price during a certain period of time. The owner will sell the buyer an option before a determined date. On the determined date, the buyer can complete the purchase of the option or sell it to another buyer. This will depend on the value of the house. An option is used to buy a house with little cash.

The sandwich lease is a method of creative real estate investing that occurs when a tenant wants to leave their unit without having the option to leave written into their lease. To get out of their lease, the investor would find a replacement tenant who becomes their tenant and not the landlord's tenant. The replacement will pay the rent to the investor who pays the landlord and keeps the profit. The new tenant will contact the landlord if they have problems with the unit. At the end of the lease, they will notify the landlord and not the investor. Their next lease will make them a tenant of the landlord.

A wholesale is when an investor buys large quantities of real estate from the bank and sells them quickly for a small profit. Distressed buyers will make a deal with the bank who will sell to the wholesalers. After buying the house from the bank, the wholesaler can make a quick profit by selling the house at markup.

A tax lien or deed is when the state sells a property after the taxes have not been paid. The owners of the property are given a certain period of time to pay their taxes. If the taxes are not paid in this time, the state will sell the home. Some states sell the tax lien at an auction. Depending on the state, the investor can obtain the property for the amount that is owed. Some states will start the auction at that price. The investor will own the property free and clear. Other states will sell the deed at a public sale. The investor can still get a great price and many have the convenience of buying the properties online.

Easy CSET Test Strategies

By Dan Williams

I am not a big fan of test taking strategies but when you take the CSET there will be some questions you just do not know and so you will have to make an educated guess.

There are some guessing strategies that will give you a slight advantage if you know them.

These guessing pointers will work on any test you take.

How to Guess to Your Advantage - Secret Clues that Give Away the Right Answer

Respond to questions in a strategic order: first off respond to simple questions to institute self-confidence, rack up points, and mentally orient yourself to vocabulary, concepts, and your subject area. Then go to harder questions or those with the greatest point value with objective questions, first of all reject those answers you make out to be erroneous, or are in all likelihood wrong, don't appear to concur, or where two selections are so similar as to represent both as incorrect. Hunt for the correct answer in another question. It is very common to be able to find elsewhere on the test the information necessary to answer the question you are currently working on.

Resist the urge to leave as soon as you have completed all the items. Review your test to make sure that you have answered all questions, not mis-marked the answer sheet, or made some other simple mistake. Proofread your writing for spelling, grammar, punctuation, decimal points, etc.

Do not outguess yourself and modify your first reactions. Research has demonstrated that your first suspicion has a greater chance of being correct. You should only modify responses to questions if you originally misconstrued them or if you have ran across data elsewhere in the test that reveals with certainty that your first choice is false.

If two options are opposite each other on the multiple choice section, chances are one of them is correct.

If there are answers that have absolute words like never, always, or every substitute these words with a qualified term like sometimes, frequently, or typical and see if the sentence can now be eliminated as a possible choice.

Appear similar choices: in all likelihood one is right; pick out the better but get rid of options that mean basically the equivalent thing, and therefore invalidate one another. Rule out choices you know to be wrong. Call into question choices that grammatically do not correspond with the stem.

Wear a watch to the test. At the beginning of the test, check the time (or start a chronometer on your watch to count the minutes), and check the time after a few questions to make sure you are on schedule. It may be easier for you to monitor your pace based on how many minutes have been used, rather than how many minutes remain. If you find that you are falling behind time during the test, begin skipping difficult questions (unless you know it at a quick glance). Once you catch back up, you can continue working each problem. If you have time at the end, go back then and finish the questions that you left behind.

Cheap and Easy Meals for College Students

By Ryan Sullivan

This is such an expensive time for you and your family. One way you can help cut back on costs is to think outside of the menu when it comes to eating. In other words, you don't have to waste precious money on restaurant tabs when you can whip up something to eat in your dorm or apartment for most days. Find the nearest grocery store and pick up the following:

1. Pasta with Sauce, Mac ... Cheese, Ramen Noodles. Everybody love carbs, right? Let's face it, you're walking a lot more than you used to and you can probably use the energy anyway. These handy meals are easy to microwave and will warm you up on a cold day. With plenty of options in packaged ramen noodles, you could probably choose a different flavor every day and not get bored. Add some fruit and a little salad and you've got your nutritional bases covered.

2. Breakfast foods. Who said you can't have cereal for dinner? Or waffles for lunch? Did you know you can scramble eggs in the microwave? The point is, most breakfast foods are easy on the wallet but go a long way in satisfaction. Forget popcorn at the movies too and put some dry cereal in a baggie to munch on instead.

3. Sandwich night. Some whole wheat bread and a package of deli meat will go a long way. It's easy to get your vegetable fix in there too if you just pick up a tomato and a head of iceberg lettuce once a week. If you grow weary of ham or bologna, don't forget that a can of tuna and some mayo can make enough tuna salad for a few sandwiches. Also, an egg sandwich is a delicious alternative to lunch meat.

4. Frozen pizza. Don't pick up that phone! Delivery pizza can be a budget buster for sure. There are plenty of options in your grocer's freezer and almost all of them are under five dollars. Just sprinkle on some canned parmesan cheese and settle in for the night.

If these suggestions leave you a little flat, get creative and think of other ways to feed your cravings on a budget. Walk up and down the aisles at the store and you'll surely come up with ideas.Meals need not be expensive to be good.

Block Out The Light With Polarized Sunglasses

By Holly Cano

Polarized sunglasses protect the eyes from glare, which reflects off glass, water and ice. After we have worn the glares we do not squint at objects or the scene before us which is a life-saver while driving on the fast-moving highway or even participating in sports.

They allow us to see clearly in the high-risk jobs like flying helicopters and planes or even jet-skiing, fishing, yachting, and other high-adventure sports. As the Polarized, offer better vision therefore people prefer them to the cheaper conventional glasses, these are perfect for people working in high-glare conditions like construction-sites and heavy traffic conditions where one needs to have share reflexes.

Other Polarized glasses dim the entire field of vision affecting our judgment that may cause accidents as oppose to this these glasses, which absorb the glare selectively. People with affected vision like patients of albinism and cataract can be highly benefited by the sunglasses that protect their eyes from glare of the sun and other reflective surfaces.

Glare is nothing but a reflection of light where most of the light reflects off in a horizontal direction rather than being evenly distributed. The filters absorb the horizontally oriented glare by blocking most of the glare out. No more driving for the seconds or longer straight into the sunset and without a view of where your driving. The blinding light will be reduced and scaled down with filters.

The sunglasses can be a safety hazard for the skiers as they absorb the glare bouncing off the small mounds of ice making them blind to them, which may cause accidents. The ability to operate the devices with LCD or digital screens such as ATM machines is reduced when a person wears these sunglasses; the ability to see the GPS cell phone is also affected through them.

The Sailors and pilots have made such reports to the important flaw in these glasses affects their visions and decision-making ability based on reading screens, in these high-risk jobs. Otherwise, the sunglasses are excellent companions on the jog, hike or even running chores within and outside the house, protecting the eyes from glare; they even prevent squinting which give rise to crowfeet and wrinkles around the eyes.

There are other benefits to Polarized sunglasses; they come as bifocals and progressive lenses for people who manifest presbyopia and like the outdoors. There are photo chromatic glasses that lighten in shade and darken in the sun, perfect for people who wear glasses consistently

I Don't Want To Be A Criminal Attorney Afterall

By Adriana Noton

I grew up wanting to be a criminal attorney. I changed my mind after my first DUI case. I went to a small unaccredited law school. This meant I could take the bar exam but I would not have the job offers graduates from ABA accredited schools would get. But that was all right. I figured I would break into criminal law somehow.

One of the drawbacks to going to a small non accredited school was limited job opportunities once I was ready to look for a law job. No large corporate law firm came to our campus located in an office building recruiting for entry level associates. But that was all right with me, I simply wanted to be able to take the bar. I would worry about finding work later.

However, the practical experience in criminal law came from working for the government. Most criminal attorneys working in the private sector started as a deputy public defender or deputy district attorney. And I was not going be able to break into that area coming from a small school. On top of that when I graduated the state had a hiring freeze because of budget constraints. About a year later however, the freeze was lifted for one opening. I interviewed and scored an 88 out of a possible 100. This was not good enough to land the only opening in a year with all the competition out there I knew.

A week later, I received a letter from the state saying that the hiring freeze was reinstated. They did not even fill the one position before putting the freeze back on. I decided to take a continuing legal education course on drunken driving defense. The course was a three day program and after the course I thought there was really nothing to it and it should be simple enough.

I ran a small ad in my local shopper after I finished the course. It cost me twenty five dollars a week. My phone started ringing off the hook. I never realized how many people get arrested for drunk driving. I went to court with my first client in the municipal court of the city I grew up in. Across the street was the college I graduated in. I had never been in their courtrooms.

There was no defense to my client's charge. As my DUI class instructor said sometimes lawyers are there simply to hold their client's hand in court. That was my job. But I wanted to go through the steps just the same. I walked over to the district attorney's desk. She was chatting with the female bailiff.

I went over to the deputy district attorney to discuss the charge and the penalty she would agree to as I learned in class. She was chatting with the female bailiff. I patiently waited for her to finish. The bailiff looked me up and down, turned her nose up and walked away. When I asked the deputy district attorney about the charge and penalty she curtly said I would find out from the judge. She said this without looking up from her files.

I was treated very politely by the female judge however. I think she probably came up the ranks of the public defenders office. My client got the basic penalty he was due and although his license was suspended for one year, I was able to allowed to drive to and from work and while he was working since driving was part of his job. But I pulled the ad from the shopper. One DUI defense was enough. One criminal case was enough for me to change my mind about criminal law. At court I felt like I was the one who was on trial not my client. But the truth of the matter is, the criminal attorney is the agent of the accused and has to know that going into not only the courtroom but into law school.

The Benefits of Walking

By Margo Lemon

I was pretty bummed about the idea of having to give up my car when I moved to a city. Then again, there was a hidden benefit that I never realized existed. People here are slimmer.

The logic of it didn't really add up, because there are plenty of restaurants serving greasy food, and plenty of patrons inside these places. People can't play sports as often here either. Why was this happening then?

Why, then do people weigh less here? I believe that the answer has something to do with the fact that the average Manhattan resident does a lot more walking than the average American citizen on a regular basis.

We don't think of it as much, but it all adds up over the course of a full day. People will happily walk 15 blocks to work, or 3 blocks away to the nearest convenience store. In a regular situation, one would likely drive this distance.

This would be an afterthought in most places, since cars can easily get us from place to place. However, it's led me to realize that walking regularly can very effectively be a means of keeping one's weight down.

They say that every mile walked will burn somewhere between 50 and 60 calories. That's the equivalent of 7 grams of fat, which really adds up over time. Walk this distance both ways, and you'll definitely begin to see some benefits over time.

That's over nearly the equivalent of running a mile at a pretty aggressive pace. You'd have to think that someone who ran a mile per day would be in pretty good physical condition, wouldn't you?

If you think it might be boring, set the time aside to call a friend or someone else who you enjoy talking to. Find a friend to walk with if you prefer not to do it alone.

Try walking in place of driving once daily and watch the results as they add up over time. This isn't an overnight miracle cure, but a steady habit such as this one will definitely prove its worth.

How To Define Success in Life, As A Young Person

By Peter Stephenson

For as long as mankind has been around, so have the notions of being successful and achieving in life. From our grandparents, through to our parents, and through to ourselves, in other words for at least three generations, the way that success is perceived has remained fairly constant. Three major aspects stand out.

First of all, being successful means different things to different people and in different scenarios. Making a fortune is not the only definition. Success may be simply doing one's best and making the most of one's own abilities, whatever they may be.

It may be about making the most of your life. Not only for yourself, but also in terms of your impact on the lives of others. It may mean a combination of success in work life, family life, social life, and in life at various stages from birth through to maturity.

One life is all we have. So therefore, perhaps the it makes sense to look at success in life in its full breadth. This includes the work part of our lives as we all have to make money to live, but it also includes success in our whole life experience.

Next, life success tends to comes about as a result of intention. It doesn't just occur accidentally (although chance can often play a role here). What I mean here, is that success in life, however you define it, is something usually intended, or aimed for.

I found 85% of the 100 successful world famous people I studied, rated ambition or striving for success, as important characteristics when they were young. For them, life success was more about intention. For them, life success was not just going to happen by chance.

Third up, success in life has been a comparable theme for quite a few generations. So whether it's once parents or grandparents, their thoughts about success are very comparable to those of their young. This means that parental and family influence are important aspects relating to a young person's development and life success.

65% of the world famous people who became successful, whose bios I researched, experienced positive family influence when they were youngsters. They would roll model their parents. They would also on specific occasions, accept their advice.

I now encourage you to try to define for yourself what you mean by success in life. Clearly this will likely have something to do with work and career. Importantly, it will also have something to do with the rest of your life.

News has been spreading that may change the landscape of the test taking industry for admissions to our nation's MBA programs.

ETS's GRE exam vs GMAC's GMAT Exam

Traditionally, business schools only accepted the GMAT exam for admissions consideration. The GRE exam was out of the picture as it was used by universities for consideration in graduate programs, not including the MBA.

In an effort to expand their reach of potential applicants, some top business schools are accepting GRE scores in addition to GMAT scores. The scope of GRE test takers includes more English majors, artists, and females than the current pool of GMAT test takers. GRE test takers could contribute to the diversity of business schools.

How do they compare?

There's two things going on here: 1) ETS is claiming their GRE test is almost the same as the GMAT--when it comes to the content that is being tested. 2) GMAC is claiming that their GMAT test is superior to GRE. Stanford, University of Chicago, MIT, Instituto De Empresa in Madrid, and John Hopkins are all jumping on the GRE + GMAT bandwagon, as opposed to the GMAT-ONLY wagon.

And now, a portion of Harvard called the 2+2 program is allowing both GMAT and GRE results beginning with the class of 2012. On their blog, Harvard announced: "Beginning with the class of 2012, HBS will accept both GMAT and GRE results. We think that both tests will provide adequate metrics of what a standardized test can tell us about a candidate. It will take a while for us to do a complete update of every reference to these tests on our website. In the meantime, please accept this as official notification of this change."

No wonder why the GMAT stated they are changing up the exam come 2013!

So how will this change the game? Well, here are a few topics and my predictions of what will happen.

In terms of who applies to business school, what will happen? Well, there are two trends that could take place.

1) A portion of those who originally were considering a master's degree in subjects like psychology, English, sociology, mathematics, and chemistry will now also consider business school.

2) Those who were going to take the GMAT, might consider taking the GRE instead.

So now, will competition to enter Americas top business schools become even more intense in coming years?

Admissions committees will allocate a smaller percentage dedicated to those who came from backgrounds such as investment banking and consulting. And a larger percentage will be allocated for less quantitatively intensive, but more creatively focused fields.

What about admissions acceptance rates?

The admissions acceptance rate will also go down as the number of spots stays the same but the number of applications go up. But if we subdivide applicants into sections of what their previous background is, I would say the competition will get tougher for those already in business and finance while those in less traditional business fields will have a slight leg up over time.

Is the GMAC just going to sit there and let ETS enter their business school turf without doing anything?

Of course not! The GMAC has already announced they will be launching a next generation GMAT in 2013.

Personally, I believe business schools are starting to realize the value of the GMAT is diminishing over the years for several reasons. One, recent cheating scandals involving websites posting live GMAT questions several years ago as well as news of professional GMAT test takers bypassing security to sit in on the test for several students have triggered alarm among business schools' perception of the GMAT test.

Also, the average GMAT test score has been going up and up-perhaps because of good prep programs ranging from Kaplan to The GMAT Pill Study Method as well as the availability of free prep material on the internet.

With these trends of average test scores going up and increasing security issues with GMAT questions, no wonder why business schools are hunting elsewhere-and for good reason. The GRE will increase the number of female applicants (almost all business schools have a 2:1 ratio of males to females) and help business schools better balance a diverse class. Moreover, the GRE arguably tests very similar concepts and may be a decent substitute.

There is still much to be decided in coming years. But a trend is happening. And there may be some significant changes to business school policies in coming years as a result.
