There are thousands of migrant and native birds dying by hitting windows, which is a very troublesome situation when it comes to the fact that many bird species are now nearing extinction. However, homeowners can take some effective measures to stop birds from hitting windows if you are keen about the safety of birds and thankful about the contributions they offer to upkeep our environmental equilibrium.

Birds fail to identify plain windows as a barrier during their flight and smash to the glass and die. Some die instantly whereas some others left half dead fall prey to cats or other predators.

Birds hitting windows

It is estimated that nearly a billion birds die each year by colliding onto glass windows across the globe. During the time of migration, the count of death due to window collision increases. It is also noted that most of the collisions happen during summer migration than in spring.

When it comes to preservation of bird species, along with the loss of their natural habitats and breeding places, death due to window collision is also now becoming a major threat to the existence of many wild birds.

Migratory songbirds are found to fall prey to window collision the most, even though all types of birds apart from the bigger ones are prone to it. Most of the times, birds don’t identify transparent glass shields as a solid barrier. As they see the reflection of sky and trees on it, they may find it as an easy fly through to the open space beyond.

If you are serious about taking a vow of not letting even a single bird dying by hitting your windowpanes, here are some basic measures to stop birds from hitting windows.

Measures to save birds from hitting glass windows

  • While building a new home, consider fixing glass panes with some patterns rather than leaving it plain. With a pattern, the birds can easily identify it as a barrier and change routes.
  • If bird hitting is a frequent case at your old house, then also you can think of adding some patterns to the existing windowpanes, which can be done now easily and cheaply.
  • Some people found to use the decals of raptors and hawks, which are okay to do, but found not extremely successful in avoiding collisions. If you do it, try to space those closely so that it can be identified as a blockage.
  • Don’t place the indoor plants so close to plain windows, which attracts the birds.
  • If you are fond of feeding birds and installed feeders at the yard, ensure that these are placed closed to the window so that the bird don’t get enough space to take momentum while trying to fly up and smash the windows forcefully.
  • For a temporary fix on the plain windows, you can try placing vertical tapes 4 inches apart to form a pattern.
  • Many people use tempera paint or special window paints to be painted on to the windows to make it obscure.

The latest solution to stop birds from hitting windows to install special types of glasses which are invisible to human, but visible to birds.

Getting the Job on Hand and Hobby on the Same Plane

Everyone is busy with his or her life and the drive to work more and earn more is surely driving everyone crazy. But besides working, one has to take time out for work out or doing something that would take the stress out a great deal. Indeed, these days people have to spend a lot of time at the desk, whether they are working from their desk at office or at home. In a bid to get out of this, they have to get out of that desk and move out. A few moments of stretching, yoga, or even catching a game of football or basketball in the backyard would also be fine.

Many people feel that it is not right to go for such games because they might have long stopped playing these sports. But truth be spoken, getting back to the games is never too late.

Jon Bunge is one of the most talented professional drivers, who spend his entire working time driving through the states. He spends a long time sitting behind the wheel and so he needs time to stretch his legs now and then and even his back needs exercise.

The need for being physically fit:

Many people around the world have today, realized the importance of going for good health. Just dunking in donuts or diving in to cheesy Mc Burgers or pizzas would seem very convenient. But it is not going to help the health in the long run if you are going to sit and work. Sedentary lifestyle would guarantee a person to gain plenty of weight.

Further, sitting at the desk or behind the wheel or being in the same position, for long would cause people to have cramps and muscle sprain!

This is why people who understand the significance of being fit and agile would try to work out and even follow a strict regime.

Jon Bunge has a great love for the game of football and it is one of those games, which does not allow people to stand in one position for long. Football is a team game, but there are many tricks and styles of kicks, which any one can practice singly. Even randomly striking goals or hitting the ball and trying new styles would keep anyone interested.

The game has plenty of strategies and even if you do not want to play the game for long, you might check out the television and watch the best moves in international matches.

Football brings people together:

It is true that football game, brings people together and people who are even strangers at a pub shall find a lot to discuss in any game. They might analyze the game and these are indeed refreshing to any person.

This is why football has found so many fans worldwide. Though the European tournaments are popular, the American counterparts are also not lagging behind in fame. Call it the fad of the game or the simplicity of the game that today people like Mr. Bunge are hooked on to it.

Master Spiritualist Josias – Longing

Published by:

josias

By Josias, Master Spiritualist

We live in a society that romanticizes all forms of longing. There are numerous pop songs that speak to this longing, from “I Just Can’t Smile Without You” to “Every Breath You Take, I’ll Be Watching You” and the list goes on. Sometimes the longing is rooted in the heart, because you are feeling true love. But other times this longing is based on something entirely different.


If you find yourself in a situation, where you just can’t stop thinking about someone, your heart aches, you feel incomplete, as if life cannot continue without this other person, your longing may be spiritual in nature. As a Master Spiritualist, I will tell my clients the truth, even if it’s not what they want to hear.  I will help to understand the feelings, the person and what needs to be done, to not only look at your future, but to change your future.

Sometimes the longing indicates an authentic strong spiritual and romantic connection, and sometimes it is almost like a curse. It weighs on you like an addiction. It is important to know if the longing you feel is for the right person, or just for someone in general. People come into our lives for a reason.  There is always a reason.  And when you have a very strong, relentless feeling about a person, there is a reason – one that might not seem apparent to the other people in your life – but one that I can see, confirm, and provide guidance around. My name is Josias, Master Spiritualist. But I am not the only person who can help you. The fact is there are many authentic Spiritualists who are able to illuminate a situation and often times help you in your spiritual healing.

For everything physical in the Universe, there is a non-physical component.  Seeing, understanding and dealing with those non-physical aspects of reality, which help to shape our physical reality, is the field of Metaphysics.  All legitimate psychics deal in the realm of Metaphysics.  Some, such as myself and others, are specialists.  I don’t just tell you what I see coming up in your future.  I look at how you can change your future.  As we learn more and more about what factors go into shaping your future, there are more options for changing the future.

In my years of experience, I have found that the way to accurately and psychically predict a person’s future is to look into their state of consciousness. This is where the blueprint of your future is located. Looking at this it becomes immediately clear the trajectory a person is on. For those who wish to change their future, this kind of information can prove to be quite valuable.


Changing future outcomes is the area of expertise for
Master Spiritualists and Psychics. And especially where matters of the heart are concerned, this can mean the difference between happiness and unhappiness – often on a grand scale. If your relationship has taken a drastic wrong turn, and you want to get it back on track, a session with an expert in the field of Metaphysics will show you what’s really going on, including and especially those Metaphysical components which so often make all of the difference in the world.  

Longing is sometimes just an unhealthy obsession, on the part of a person who is fixating on another person, in order to avoid other feelings in life.  But not always.  Longing can also be a very strong indication of the depth of love you feel for another.  And what’s more, it can also be evidence of a karmic dimension – meaning that someone is meant to be in your life at this time, or for the rest of time.  Sometimes this is simply a psychological matter. But other times these questions have deep spiritual components to them. Knowing which is which and what to do – this is the work of a Master Spiritualist. If you feel that your longing has a spiritual dimension to it, I would urge you to find a reputable Psychic or Spiritualist, in your area or online, to help you look at these questions with a fresh point of view. Remember that love spells do not work. If you really love somebody whom you are deeply longing for, perhaps it is worth at least that – to look for help in what may seem to be the most unlikely place.

I Made the Decision to Let Go, But that doesn’t make it Any Easier

“A woman is unstoppable after she realises she deserves better”      – Word Porn

My personal adventure of struggles and strengths which ultimately resulted in self-awareness and the development of self-worth is a complex story, full of every emotion you could possibly imagine, leading me to the realisation of self-respect.  The five stages involved in this valuable life lesson have been detailed below.

  1. Infatuation

From that very first time we met, it was clear I was more attracted to him.  Everything about him was practically perfect!  I had visualised us settling down together, dreaming of our long and happy future and basically letting my imagination run wild.  On reflection, I now can see these feelings weren’t reciprocated.   Too caught up in my emotions, I chose to ignore any red flags that were visible.  Looking back I feel like such an idiot, yet I still can’t help but miss him, love him and ache inside as I long for him.

Love at first sight?

Despite being in two serious, long-term relationships where I had considered myself to be in love, the feelings I experienced with him were of a completely different level.  I began to doubt if I had every truly been in love with a man until now.  I told him we fitted together like a little jigsaw piece!  Despite him saying I wasn’t his ‘type’, I often told him he was perfect for me – and I meant it.

  1. Love and Denial

Many times I wonder why my love for this man resulted in me excusing his comments aimed at my weight amongst other things.  I desperately tried to convince myself that perhaps he had low self-esteem as I did and was criticising me to help himself feel better.  I openly explained how his comments made me feel, giving him an insight into my battle with anorexia, hoping he would protect me from further remarks.  He cried and apologised which surely proved he loved me too, I convinced myself.

People will only treat you how you allow them to!

As time passed, I eventually began to listen to my instincts that were screaming this was wrong.  I discovered he had been cheating on me and everything fell into place – he was never interested in me.  I felt like such a fool as the realisation set in.  If he had missed me like I missed him, he would contact me, he would want to see me, and he would respond when I called.  Blinded by love, I made excuses for his lack of contact.  This was the first time I had truly felt rejected and I didn’t want to accept this harsh reality.

He’s just not that into me!

  1. Betrayal

As I bravely approached the topic of the cheating I was literally left speechless at his lack of ability to accept he was wrong.  Instead, he insisted I was to blame for not just ignoring it.  This was the final straw.  No matter how ugly I felt, despite my anorexia and self-hatred, regardless of my sheer disgust at everything about myself I felt strong enough to know that I did not deserve to be treated this way.

Reaching a stage where you can walk away from people who don’t respect you!

I still can’t believe it but I eventually walked away.  I scraped together enough self-respect to believe I deserved better, even with my extremely low opinion of myself.  My heart was shattered into a million pieces at the thought of losing him, even though I knew deep down I never really had him.

I didn’t want to leave him, in fact I genuinely loved him more than he could ever imagine.  But I knew this was the right decision although probably the most difficult.  I felt proud of myself for doing what I knew I had to.

  1. Tears and Mixed Emotions

For endless weeks I sat alone with tears streaming down my cheeks, feeling a whole mixture of emotions.  There was part of me that felt strong, enjoying my new found self-respect.  Feelings of regret and embarrassment were also present, along with deep feelings of hurt, my heart physically aching.  I missed this man so much and I had to use every last part of strength and willpower within me to ensure I didn’t run back to him.  Even until this very day I still find it impossible to forget him, knowing I can’t be with him, but struggling to be without.

Sometimes you have to reach absolute ‘rock bottom’ before you can pick yourself back up!

Having no friends or anyone to confide in has made this whole business of ‘letting go’ even more of a challenge.  The anorexia ensured I had isolated myself, pushing everyone away.  My new best friend became ‘Google’ as I frantically searched for answers that I will never truly have.  I have learned from my internet searches that I have done the right thing and that through time things will become easier.  Apparently there will come a point when I don’t have him on my mind every second of every day and when I don’t feel an eerie emptiness inside my heart.

You would struggle to handle me now, even if instructions were provided!

  1. Finding Positive in Every Negative

She needed a hero, so that’s what she became!

Thanks to my scarily intimate online resources, I have managed to realise that I am not a fool but instead a woman with a big heart.  I have learned to let go of my anger as the only person this negatively impacts is myself.  I am praising myself for being so strong and showing my self-worth, mentally replaying the moment I told him I deserved much better.

Never settle for less than you deserve!  Having self-respect is the most beautiful quality a woman can possess.

Rather than dwell on this heart-breaking, one-sided love which I fully invested in, I am determined to make something positive come of this situation.  Yes before you ask, I did get this idea from my new friend ‘Google’!  I am able to learn and identify where I would make changes if ever in a similar situation.  I am now aware of loves dominating ability to overlook warning signs and I’m clearer about my hopes and desires managing to overpower my willingness and ability to face reality.  These are valuable lessons I will keep with me for the rest of my life.  I feel stronger and will never again accept someone behaving towards me in this way.  From the bottom of my heart, no matter how difficult it gets or how lonely I feel, I can confidently state I would rather be on my own than with someone who doesn’t deserve me.

Once you become aware of your self-worth and value letting go will be the easiest, difficult thing you do.

I hope that after reading my struggles, both past and present, you become aware of the importance of having your own self-worth.  Everything I gained from my endless, lonely online searches has been valuable and will continue to provide guidance throughout my life.  Please never settle for less than you deserve and don’t feel pity for me, this is an essential experience that will be beneficial to me in many ways during my future journeys.

My online search uncovered the exciting Cinemabox  which I really enjoyed and would highly recommend.

PlayBox HD for alternative devices

Published by:

playbox-hd

If you keep hearing about PlayBox HD and how people are getting it for their iPhones and Androids, their MACs and laptops and you are feeling left out, all is not lost. Just because you do not have one of those devices does not mean that you cannot gain access to the hottest application around.

If you have a BlackBerry, a Fire Phone, a Fire Stick or the Fire TV then you are in luck, because you can download the PlayBox HD application for all of these devices. There is even a happy bonus here, these are the easiest download processes to go through- it is completely simple and totally straightforward and will have you streaming movies and TV shows in no time.

I’ll give you a quick breakdown of just how easy it is. For your BlackBerry device all you need to do is go into Install Programs, which you will find in your App Manager under settings and just simply switch the “Allow Apps from Other Sources to be Installed” to on. Then download the PlayBox file. That is it!

The Kindle Fire follows the same basic process which requires you to enable the option of installation of applications through your settings and in devices. Then you simply need to install the PlayBox file and you are done. For the Fire Phone it is again the same process but in your settings you will find it under Applications & Parental Controls and it is the “Allow non-Amazon app installation” that you need to enable. Once you have done that you just need to download and install PlayBox.

Of all of these installations you will find the Fire TV is the most complicated, yet still easy as can be. In your settings you will find system and then Developer Options once in there you will see ADB Debugging- you need to enable that. Then download ADBFire as well as FireBox to your computer. Run ADBFire and type in the IP address of your Fire TV (you can find that in settings > system > about > network) and then install the FireBox file. You will then receive a pop up that tells you that you need to update the app, just hit Cancel.  You are now free to scroll through a bounty of movies and television shows to choose from!

Remember, while this might seem like a pain in the backside but this process does not actually take very long, it is fairly straightforward and considering the application is entirely free it is definitely worth the hassle. I think you will agree once you have had the chance to enjoy free movies and TV shows at your fingertips.

Some Selections to Make When Purchasing Your Home Sauna

Published by:

ns2-1

Having a sauna room in your home can be an extraordinary advantage, particularly when you return home with drained, throbbing muscles and you simply need to unwind. In any case, if you are thinking about making a buy, there are a couple of things to settle on before purchasing.

Likewise, worthy of consideration is the additional cash your suana could give you if and when you choose to sell your home. Frequently saw as extravagance things by real estate agents, unique components, for example, indoor saunas commonly build the resale estimations of homes. Yes, there will dependably be an initial investment joined to the expansion of a sauna room however; the potential adjustments will be more than compensate for it.

A standard pack comprises of a heap of material and directions. You do the greater part of the work, including some cutting. If you are not contented taking on this task, then this might not be the route to go, either.

Traditional sauna rooms have vast majority of the pieces pre-collected leaving just the huge, massive things for you to do. This for the most part incorporates boards, and so forth. They are snappier to finish and there is a little edge for blunder as it is for all intents and purposes set up together when it arrives.

There is a decision of whether to run with an infrared or customary sauna. More individuals are swinging to infrared in the light of the warmth source and the unified impact it can have on you in spite of the fact that the temperature that is put out lower.

Customary tends to warm the whole room regardless of what number of individuals are utilizing it and produce a higher temperature. A few people will locate these higher temperatures harsher. For them, an infrared sauna room may simply be the approach.

You have to choose how large of a unit you will require. If it is just you and a huge other, then a few man unit will do. These are the standard sizes sold to the vast majority. In any case, if you anticipate enthralling a ton in it then you might need to settle on bigger. Truth be told, despite the fact that you can purchase a 12 man sauna, you may think that it is better to contract to assemble yours if it is large.

Something that a great many people never consider is the entryway. Strong entryways hold more warmth, yet some may need a glass way to see out of and to permit all the more light inside. This might be an issue in the event that you plan to utilize the unit naked. Obviously, in the event that you have an indoor sauna, your own bareness in your own home may not be an issue than it could be in traditional sauna rooms with windows.

Ensure that your sauna room is made of good quality material. Cedar is by a long shot the best to utilize, but on the other hand is the most costly. If you consider the way that it does not twist or decay, repulses termites and holds warm, well it might be a simple choice for you.

The World’s Best Salami

Published by:

olli_product_molisana_3

All the world over there are hundreds of varieties of salami, thus proving that people of every culture love cured meats. But which country makes THE best salami? Much like the famous owl in the old Tootsie Pop commercials, the world may never know.

That’s because what we find to be the best is subjective. You might think some of the best stuff around comes from Italy, but a friend might feel that Spain does salami better. We can argue about these things all day, but the best salami is the one that you like the most.

With so many options, you’ll probably never figure out one best option. More likely, you’ll come away with several different salamis that you can’t get enough of. To properly enjoy salami, make sure you slice it very thin. Do this while it is still cold because it will slice easier, but once you slice it, let it sit out for around 15 minutes so the fat can soften. The flavors will open up, like a good wine, and it you will enjoy it infinitely more this way. Peeling it is important too. While the casing on salami is harmless, it will inhibit your true enjoyment of this delectable cured meat.

Cured meat junkies can get their fix with Olli, where we bring you quality cured meats made the traditional way for over 160 years. While going on a world tour is nice, you can find your best salami here in America without fumbling around for your passport.

Our Toscano salami is a must-try. It’s made with fennel grown from the wild hills in the Tuscan region of Italy. Intensely aromatic, it lends a chewy texture filled with complex earthy tones. With the fennel, you get undertones of licorice making for a splendid experience.

Fans of truffles should try the Tartufo salami and make it their new favorite. Savor this one bite for bite with its rich, soft and chewy pork texture mingling with truffles and seasonings to bring an earthy flavor. It’s ideal for making a special occasion even more memorable.

Perhaps you’ll find love with one of the other robust flavors of salami by Olli. Wild Boar is made with applewood-smoked cuts of wild boar meat, Chorizo is made in regular and hot varieties in the traditional Spanish way, and Norcino is a simpler salami with high-quality pork flavor that shines through.

Which of Olli’s salamis do you think is the best? If you’re not sure, you can taste them all to find out.

Pack And Play Vs. Crib: Innovations or Traditions?

Published by:

playard-canopy

As times change, new innovational things move traditional ones aside. Equipment for kids isn’t an exception, as we see with the growing popularity of pack and plays. Our parents didn’t have a lot to choose from, but modern parents have a lot of different options to use. Some of them accept the progress and buy travel yards, but others prefer more traditional approach and buy cribs for their children. But what is better?

The Benefits of Using Pack and Plays

  • Firm sleeping/playing area.

Some children feel safer having less space to sleep. These are kids who get stimulated easily. By having all toys within hand reach the kid will be calm while falling asleep and busy for a long time when awake.

  • High safety level.

There’s no danger that your child will get their foot, arm or head through, which may cause an injure. There’s also less distance to the kid to fall while trying to climb out of the playard.

  • The ability to be taken outside.

It’s hard to take a crib outside for a child to sleep or play in it. With pack and play there’s no trouble going for a picnic or to a friend’s house for a holiday. It’s also a wonderful place to leave your kid when you have other things to do – the baby will be safe and busy with toys while you use your free time.

To buy a basic crib with a mattress and other necessary things you have to spend at least $300. Travel yards are much cheaper; you can find one for less than $100 or spend more for better versions with more details and options, such as a table or a canopy. For the latter check out the TOP-5: http://www.best-pack-n-play.com/top-5-playards-canopy/.

Will Your Child Outgrow Pack and Play Fast?

Many people say it’s a big con of such equipment, but it depends on what travel yard you buy. There are multiple modifications with various small tables and other details, including parts that can be enlarged. Think about all the details that may help you choose the best pack and play playard for your child.

What Option to Choose?

Depends on what is more comfortable for you as a parent and what your kid likes better. Some children feel more confident with less sleeping place, some like more space to feel free. Some parents are more confident about the traditional equipment to raise a child, others want to catch up with the progress. It’s a personal choice for every parent.
