Kick Start The Healthy Water

Kick Start The Healthy Water

 

Imagine a typical day, when you shower yourself to get rid of the day's tiredness. You wait in the bath tub and watch the contaminants and the deposited dirt on skin and hair soaked away. You finish this freshening process, dry yourself, move out of the bath tub and this is what you feel:

More tirednessMore stickiness on the skinIrritation in the eyesThe hair that look permanently mismanaged

What could have gone wrong?? It's your water!!

Surprising but true. Most of the water purifying plants use chlorine as the main part of the purification process. While the chemical plays its role in dealing with the contaminants, it also leaves the room for the side effects that are very typical to the usage of chlorinated water. If present in considerable amounts, the chlorine vaporizes with the steam, and enters the lungs and pores of the skin. The irritation in the various parts including eyes, nose, throat, lungs and mucous membranes is very common. Not just this, chlorine in any form is hazardous to the skin and hair as well. The dryness and itching find the permanent way to offer a prematurely aged appearance.

Fortunately, there are ways to tackle this. The simplest and the most cost-efficient is by using the water filters. This leaves us with the two main areas in the house which require attention in terms of chlorinated water usage:

5 reasons that explains Rolex’s popularity

5 reasons that explains Rolex’s popularity

Many people decide to own a Rolex watch. Despite them being more expensive when compared to others, owning a Rolex watch is what people across the world yearn to do. The same also applies when the decision has been made to sell Rolex watches because demand is high. There are various reasons that are behind why a Rolex watch remains very popular and shows no signs of abating:

Recognised around the world

There are many brands whose popularity hasn’t been affected no matter what happens. Along with Nike, Levi, McDonalds, Cadbury and Coca Cola, Rolex is an infamous brand. Although other watch manufacturers i.e. Cartier, are also recognisable, they are not as well-known as Rolex. The reason that explains why is largely attributed to the consistent high quality of every model.

They become more valuable

Many Rolex models don’t retain their value. In fact, some models become increasingly valuable over time. When a Rolex watch is purchased and kept in its original box in a safe, it can be worth far more in the future. Many people decide to buy a Rolex watch because they view it as an asset. Parents even purchase a valuable model so that it can be left to their children in their Will.

What if???

What if???

What if…..?

I woke up this morning to find that my wife was already down stairs with my six week old son. As I lifted myself from my king size bed I thought, What if I could install the machine out of Wallace and Gromit. You all know the device I’m talking about, the machine that tilts you out of bed, showers you and brushes your teeth for you. I know this sounds lazy but just imagine how awesome this would be if you could buy something like this on the market. Or what if a large suction tube descended upon you just after you get out of bed that washes you, dry’s you and dresses you. We live in the 21st century, we can send out unmanned drones to strategically fire missiles right up the back side of anyone unfortunate enough to be on our naughty list. So why can’t I have a device that carries out the tedious tasks of personal hygiene?

Once I’ve grunted, groaned and stretched off, I wrap myself in my dressing gown and head towards the toilet, and then once again I had another crazy machination. What if, instead of wasting time on the toilet, wasting toilet paper and baby wipes, imagine there was a device that can digitally remove your bodily waste as and when requested? I mean, our bowel movements aren’t exactly a pleasant experience for all, not to mention we could save money on toilet cleaner, and air freshener. I saw an episode of Family Guy, this particular story encompassed the possibly of the multi verse theory. The theory states that there are millions of universes all parallel to each other in different dimensions. Well in this particular episode one universe is so advanced that all bowel movements can be requested at will and are digitally removed and sent to another universe. Also AIDS is a curable disease, by simply taking a pill and it is obliterated immediately, also another what if question to think about.

The Hauppauge gaming edition - Gameplay recorder

The Hauppauge gaming edition - Gameplay recorder

The Hauppauge HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition is a high definition recorder, designed for creating your own personal game play videos and for sharing online via Youtube, Twitch or even Twitch Live Streaming, or simply showing your friends whilst at home. According to the retailer at Tech Inventory the PVR 2 records footage from your gaming console and downloads directly straight to your pc or laptop using HD H.264 format. The unit requires installation of the ArcSoft ShowBiz Suite, which is included with the Hauppauge HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition purchase. ArcSoft ShowBiz Suite will capture your real-time game play, and edit previously recorded games, though, it is worth taking into account there are better video editing applications on the market. ArcSoft ShowBiz Suite does have a wide range of video conversion tools as well. 

 The current generation of gaming has seen thousands of video uploads to YouTube and other social networking websites. Short films made by gamers showing off their skills, usually showing First person and Third person shooters. This unit is a birth product of the gaming revolution, and is of no surprise to me that such a gadget should rise from the evolution of video games. 

 PVR 2 sounds like the gamers dream accessory, it looks good, and does exactly what it says on the tin. The unit records directly to your PC and stores data automatically much like Garmin Swim does. The PS3 connector has to use its older more out of date component cable, whilst the Xbox uses its HDMI connection. This is apparently due to Sony making it illegal to do so, but it is more likely Sony simply couldn’t be bothered to contest against Microsoft; hopefully, this will change with the introduction of the next generation consoles that are rumoured to be hitting the market in the next year.

Garmin Swim

Garmin Swim

At first glance this just appears to look like any other digital watch. However upon closer inspection we realise that this could be the best swimming product since the invention of goggles. Garmin have designed this fabulous little swimming aid that can really help to improve your technique and assist your concentration whilst in the water. Garmin swim is a swimming tool that counts the laps you do whilst you concentrate on your strokes and speed. The little accessory has a sleek design which cuts through the water so it won’t slow you down, and you can replace the battery yourself around once a year as per the manufacturer.

Garmin Swim has an easy to use basic interface so anyone can use it. Once on your wrist you simply input the size of the swimming pool your about to use and it automatically calculates the amount of lengths you swim. Also with Garmin swim you can input swimming drills and find out how fast you pace yourself through the water. Another great feature is that Garmin Swim is also a watch and an alarm can be set, and to help you stay motivated it displays your weekly accumulated distance under time of day.

My favourite feature that comes with Garmin Swim is the fact you can upload the data you collect to Garmin Connect, and online free feature so you can analyse your workouts. You can share your progress with friends and family, and whenever you’re in range of your computer; Garmin automatically uploads data using a program called ANT+, a wireless technology compatible with Windows and MAC.

Flo Rida - Good feeling

Flo Rida - Good feeling

Flo Rida – Good feeling

This is, personally an amazing music video, probably one of my all time favourites. Not only is the song very catchy, bouncy and makes you want to move but the video is very tech heavy and we get to see what someone like Flo Rida use’s all these different bits of kit for. The video includes super cars, some very cool looking exercise equipment and some fashionable clothing.

The video starts with Flo Rida, looking out over the landscape of a city, probably Los Angeles, dressed in a red training kit, which includes shorts, a hoody and sun glasses. The opening sequence feels like a Rocky montage from the future. We then see Flo Rida shadow boxing between double rows of boxing bags, followed by the rapper jogging in a black t-shirt and black shorts.

The sequence then moves onto Flo Rida preparing to and boarding a plane and landing in Paris. It is then that he finally starts rapping and the good times appear to start rolling. The first part of the video that catches my eye is the trick with I pad Flo Rida does. He holds it in front of his face and the screen shows him boxing, exercising and rapping. He shows several different videos by sliding his finger across the screen. My personal opinion is that this is the coolest part of the video.

Top 5 things you need to carry in your handbag

Does your handbag have a permanent weight of 20 pounds? It is definite that it contains surplus things that you will never need at all. If you look inside your handbag, you can find things like dried pens, stray earrings, used tubes of emollients, crumpled papers and shopping bills, and many more things that remain dumped in your handbag and add to its weight. So, it is high time that you clean your bag and throw away the unnecessary things. But you must be equally aware of the things that are essential in a handbag. 

Wallet

You cannot move an inch without money. So, the first thing that needs to be put inside your handbag after cleaning it is your wallet. If your handbag contains additional patch pockets in its internal portion, you can pick up one of them as the safest place for your money filled wallet. Putting the wallet is such as easily searchable yet concealed part of your bag will be helpful as you do not have to search the entire bag every time you need to take out money from your wallet for paying the taxi fare or shopping bills.

Cellphone

Your handbag is the safest place for keeping your cellphone as you can remain assured that it will never get misplaced. So, this is the second most vital thing you should keep in your bag. But in case of your cellphone, an external pocket in your handbag with closure will be ideal. This is because you can take it out instantly as soon you hear it buzzing and keep it away when you are done. When you keep the cellphone in such a position of your handbag, you will never miss any calls even in a noisy place.
