The Shattered Identity

In the movie “Shattered” (1991), Dan Merrick survives an accident and develops total amnesia regarding his past. His battered face is reconstructed by plastic surgeons and, with the help of his loving wife, he gradually recovers his will to live. But he never develops a proper sense of identity. It is as though he is constantly ill at ease in his own body. As the plot unravels, Dan is led to believe that he may have murdered his wife’s lover, Jack. a thriller offers additional twists and turns but, throughout it all, we face this question:

Dan has no recollection of being Dan. Dan does not remember murdering Jack. It seems as though Dan’s very identity has been erased. Yet, Dan is in sound mind and can tell right from wrong. Should Dan be held (morally and, as a result, perhaps legally as well) accountable for Jack’s murder?

Would the answer to this question still be the same had Dan erased from his memory ONLY the crime -but recalled everything else (in an act of selective dissociation)? Do our moral and legal accountability and responsibility spring from the integrity of our memories? If Dan were to be punished for a crime he doesn’t have the faintest recollection of committing – wouldn’t he feel horribly wronged? Wouldn’t he be justified in feeling so?

There are many states of consciousness that involve dissociation and selective amnesia: hypnosis, trance and possession, hallucination, illusion, memory disorders (like organic, or functional amnesia), depersonalization disorder, dissociative fugue, dreaming, psychosis, post traumatic stress disorder, and drug-induced psychotomimetic states.


Consider this, for instance:

What if Dan were the victim of a Multiple Personality Disorder (now known as “Dissociative Identity Disorder”)? What if one of his “alters” (i.e., one of the multitude of “identities” sharing Dan’s mind and body) committed the crime? Should Dan still be held responsible? What if the alter “John” committed the crime and then “vanished”, leaving behind another alter (let us say, “Joseph”) in control? Should “Joseph” be held responsible for the crime “John” committed? What

Hypnosis Good Or A Bad

There are many things in this world which can be used in both ways. In both ways come the good ones as well and even the bad ones are included in both. Now the choice of selection depends upon the person who has that ability to make the use of that thing.

Like medicine; there many other examples in this world which can be used in the both ways. Similar to this condition there is a state known as hypnosis.

Many of the doctors but especially the physicians are using this technique for the betterment of people.So this state is used by physicians for making people relief who are suffering from different kinds of mental stress and anxiety due to which they cannot live happily.

When they want some information from a particular person they make use of this state on that person and they get the important point from him and they resolve their problems.Now the bad effects of this state come. Many people who have the knowledge about this thing also use hypnosis

Satellite TV Programming Why go Anywhere Else for Children’s Programming

For years TVs and TV programming services really didn’t undergo that much change and everything seemed to stay the same. Sure there were some changes along the way, in small steps, but major leaps in technology were few and far between.


The TV screen its self changed from black and white to color decades ago and that was the end of it. , changing from black and whit to color the only improvements that the TV underwent, were mostly cosmetic. It changed shape and size and there were things like projection TVs, but the picture its self stayed the same because the technology never really improved.

The programming on standard TV and cable did undergo some change over the years, it got worse and worse. Tragically one area that standard TV programming really took a nose dive was in the area of children’s programming.

Forty years ago children’s programming was in its zenith, with great cartoon programming that featured a multitude of cartoon characters that all seemed to have good deeds on their mind and those that didn’t were constantly getting whomped on by those that did.

Underdog was a crime fighter that always had the time to help someone that was in need. Daffy Duck and Buggs Bunny spent their days playing practical jokes on people like Elmer Fudd and Yosemite Sam. It seemed that every time Elmer Fudd would stick his shot gun down Buggs Bunnies hole, Buggs bunny would bend it around and aim it up out another hole, right at poor Elmer’s back side with predictable results when he pulled the trigger.


Children’s shows were hosted by great people like Hobo Kelly, Sheriff John and Captain Kangaroo. If you turn on the TV now and go to children’s programming, what you will find is computer generated cartoons that have no message and will cause a headache if they are watched too long and soap opera like programming in the evenings that is aimed at preteens that is chock full of sexual innuendo.

Cable had the run of things for decades and didn’t pioneer any major improvements in anything. They charged top dollar for everything that they did and their programming just stagnated.

The Desire For Money, Do You Have Business Sense?

owned them, the world of business can be quite a mystery. Even more so if we’ve dared to try to start one of our own. There is the factor of what type of business to start – a product or service business. There are the issues of doing a good market analysis, licensing the business, understanding the codes of law governing businesses, and determining just what type of business structure to choose – especially if the business will have employees. For example, should we start a sole proprietorship or a corporate business? It’s a lot to work on, and it’s not an , process to the road of success. But, the most crucial challenge to whether a business succeeds or fails lies deep within the realm of emotional versus financial intelligence.Many start-up businesses fail within the first year of existence. This is especially so with businesses started from home, or exist without the traditional bricks and mortar structure we are so accustomed to. And, far too often the reason many start-up businesses fail has to do with the emotional challenge the new business owner faces. The challenge of seeing him or her self now as a business owner, rather than a paid worker for someone else’s business. It means dressing differently, thinking differently, and talking differently. It means believing that you are already successfully established even if you have a long ways to go on the business’s balance sheet. To put simply, if the business owner doesn’t have a firm belief and commitment in the business and his or her role as the owner, then others simply won’t be convinced that this business is the place to get what they need. Then, there is the crucial issue of having the financial intelligence to keep the business going in the direction the new owner desires. To put it simply, if the new business is only taking money to operate and not making money, it won’t be long before the doors of opportunity become closed. No matter how much motivational self-talk and emotional pump-me-up the new business owner does, it is the results shown on the bottom line that determines

The Ever-Evolving Canvas: Exploring the Depths of Art

Art, the timeless expression of human creativity, has been an integral part of human existence since the dawn of civilization. From the ancient cave paintings to the contemporary digital masterpieces, art has served as a mirror reflecting the society, culture, and emotions of its time. In this exploration, we delve into the multifaceted world of art, tracing its evolution, impact, and significance in the modern era.

Art Through the Ages

The history of art is a rich tapestry woven with threads of diverse cultures, traditions, and movements. Each era has birthed its own distinctive styles, techniques, and schools of thought, leaving behind a legacy that continues to inspire and influence artists today.

Ancient civilizations, such as the Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans, adorned their temples, tombs, and public spaces with intricate sculptures and vibrant murals, immortalizing their gods, heroes, and daily life. The Renaissance period witnessed a rebirth of classical art, marked by a renewed interest in humanism, perspective, and realism, as exemplified by the works of Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Raphael.

The 19th and 20th centuries ushered in a wave of artistic revolutions, from the romanticism of Delacroix to the impressionism of Monet, the cubism of Picasso, and the surrealism of Dalí. These movements shattered traditional conventions, challenging viewers to see the world through new eyes and embrace the beauty of experimentation and innovation.

Art in the Digital Age

In the 21st century, the advent of technology has revolutionized the way art is created, consumed, and shared. Digital tools and platforms have democratized the artistic process, allowing aspiring artists to explore their creativity without the constraints of traditional mediums.

Digital art encompasses a vast array of forms, including computer-generated imagery (CGI), digital painting, animation, and interactive installations. Artists harness the power of software programs like Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and Blender to bring their visions to life, blurring the lines between reality and imagination.

Social media and online galleries have become virtual canvases for artists to showcase their work to a global audience, fostering communities of like-minded individuals and sparking dialogue around pressing social, political, and environmental issues. Platforms like Instagram, DeviantArt, and Behance serve as hubs of inspiration, connecting artists with collectors, collaborators, and critics from every corner of the globe.

The Intersection of Art and Technology

The fusion of art and technology has given rise to groundbreaking innovations, such as virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR), which immerse viewers in immersive sensory experiences. Museums and galleries are embracing these technologies to enhance exhibitions, offering visitors a glimpse into the artist’s creative process and the historical context behind their work.

Artificial intelligence (AI) has also made its mark on the art world, with algorithms generating original artworks, composing music, and even writing poetry. While some view AI as a threat to human creativity, others see it as a tool for collaboration and exploration, expanding the possibilities of what art can be and who can create it.

The Power of Art to Inspire Change

Beyond its aesthetic value, art has the power to provoke thought, evoke emotions, and inspire change. Throughout history, artists have used their craft as a means of protest, activism, and advocacy, shining a light on injustice, inequality, and oppression.

From the anti-war paintings of Picasso’s “Guernica” to the feminist sculptures of Judy Chicago’s “The Dinner Party,” art has served as a catalyst for social movements, galvanizing individuals to question the status quo and envision a more just and equitable world. Street art, graffiti, and murals have transformed urban landscapes into open-air galleries, reclaiming public space and amplifying marginalized voices.

Looking to the Future

As we stand on the threshold of a new era, the future of art holds endless possibilities and untapped potential. Emerging technologies like blockchain are revolutionizing the way art is bought, sold, and authenticated, offering artists greater control over their work and ensuring transparency in the art market.

The rise of virtual reality, artificial intelligence, and bio-art promises to push the boundaries of artistic expression even further, challenging us to redefine our understanding of creativity, identity, and consciousness. Yet amidst the rapid pace of change, one thing remains constant: the enduring power of art to inspire, unite, and transform the world around us.

In conclusion, art is not merely a static object to be admired but a dynamic force that shapes our perceptions, challenges our assumptions, and connects us to our shared humanity. As we embark on this journey of discovery, let us embrace the boundless potential of art to transcend boundaries, ignite imaginations, and illuminate the path towards a brighter future.

Maximizing Efficiency: The Key to Effective Heating Systems

Efficiency in heating systems is not merely a buzzword; it’s a fundamental aspect of sustainability, cost-effectiveness, and comfort in any space. Whether it’s a cozy home, a bustling office, or a large industrial complex, optimizing heating efficiency is crucial for both environmental responsibility and economic prudence.

Understanding Efficiency Heating
Efficiency in heating systems refers to the amount of useful heat produced compared to the energy input required. In simpler terms, it’s about getting the most warmth possible out of the energy consumed. This concept extends across various types of heating systems, including furnaces, boilers, heat pumps, and radiant heating.

Efficiency in heating is not a one-size-fits-all concept but rather a multifaceted approach involving technology, maintenance, and building design. By prioritizing efficiency in heating systems, individuals and organizations can simultaneously reduce their carbon footprint, save money, and enhance comfort and well-being. Embracing efficient heating practices is not only responsible stewardship of resources but also a strategic investment in a sustainable and comfortable future.

You have a great idea for a video game – What should you do?

Maybe you have thought up a really neat and unique idea for a video game and you are thinking “If I can just get in touch with the right people I can sell it and make a lot of money. And I get to see my idea turned into a game that people will play”.

Well, that may be true, and it is possible to do but, to be honest, it is very unlikely.
Developing a video game takes a lot of work. A typical game for today’s mass market takes a team of people two years and thousands of hours of work to create. There is a tremendous amount of work involved and much of this work is very creative which can be expensive.

Maybe all of that is a bit discouraging and if you really think you have an idea that is unique there are some things you can do and I will explain the steps and processes you can take to move your idea for a game out of the world of fantasy into the world of possibility.

The big obstacle to getting your idea made into a game is the question of who is going to do all that work? It is an important question. A group of people have to believe in the idea and have to do the work to take it from idea to reality, and generally you have to rely on yourself. If you believe in your idea you need to be the person that will spearhead the work and get it from idea to reality. If you can do this, and if your game is unique and different the rewards can be astonishing.

Three Possible Paths to Success

There are three possible ways to get a game made from your idea:

Simple Steps to Hypnotize Yourself

changes that we want to happen to our lives. Well, you can always do self hypnosis techniques and start to change for the better. Here are easy-to-do steps to hypnotize yourself:

1- Get it started. Find the most comfortable spot that is free from any forms of distraction. Start the process by breathing slowly and easily. Relax yourself from head to toe. Energies are more powerful in an unperturbed body. Now, ask yourself, “What do I want to achieve at the end if this process?” Once you have decided, your subconscious will work on an issue, not just on the suggestions you will feed your system. Therefore, you also have

to make a purpose statement: “I will hypnotize myself to allow my subconscious to guide me in my purpose.” You must add your purpose into this statement. This shall run through your thinking and will be fulfilled after the hypnosis process has been done.

2- Work on the external process. You are now set in a relaxed and undistracted mode. Sustain this condition until the end of the process. Slowly look at three things in front of you, one by one, allowing a pause for each moment. You may look at a door knob, a chair or whatever you can see. Then, you go to the auditory sense using same techniques. After hearing the sounds of your environment, focus on sensations that you currently feel – the texture of your shirt, the sweat that drops down your forehead, etc.

3- Go on with the internal part. Close your eyes and slowly gain the power. If there are distractions, incorporate them in the process; do not allow yourself to get distracted. Become aware of a feeling and name it – “the air that touches my skin”, “the warmth that embraces my body”. Repeat the same procedure on auditory encounters. Expect that there is a new feeling that revives your body, which only means you have gone through the process very well. It will help you to have strong concentration and stay relaxed completely.

4- Follow Hypnotic Inductions. Now, it is time to follow hypnotic induction CDs. You can create the CD yourself if you do it professionally. If you do not have hypnotic voice, hire a hypnotist in your area to do it for you. Another option is to buy self hypnosis CDs from online stores. Personally, I would recommend buying hypnotic induction CDs from online stores instead recording them at home, as they record these CDs with the help of professional hypnotists. So, most of them have high quality.

Time of the hypnosis sessions depends on the self hypnosis induction you use for the process. For example, if you are hypnotizing yourself just for relaxation, then it will take only 20-25 minutes for the induction, but when you a

No Fee Balance Transfer 0% Intro APR Credit Cards Still Exist

Ever since zero percent introductory annual percentage rate (intro APR) credit cards were introduced to the American market several years ago, they’ve been very popular. All types of consumers have been taking advantage of 0% offers. Most consumers use 0% deals to save money by avoiding interest charges on their credit card debt,
while other money-savvy consumers use 0% offers to make money by playing the 0% credit card arbitrage game (also known as “stoozing.”) Many 0% credit card offers come with a catch: you have to pay a fee for transferring a balance. There are, however, a few select credit card products out there where you don’t have to pay a fee for the first or initial balance transfer.

Feeless, 0% intro APR balance transfer deals — perhaps the most sought-after 0% deals on the Internet — are a dying breed. Dying, but not dead. The pool of banks that offer feeless 0% deals has been shrinking. Why? Because the banks and credit card companies know that
by eliminating the balance transfer transaction fee, a balance transfer “surfer” can transfer a credit card balance to a card, sit out the interest-free period, then transfer the balance out to a new 0% deal — thus denying the bank any opportunity to make money off the surfer. The balance transfer transaction fee gives a bank the opportunity to get at least something out of the deal.

The Discover More family of credit cards, offered by Discover Financial Services (DFS), has been exceedingly popular for transferring credit card balances. Why? Because, heretofore, with any Discover More card, you could transfer a credit card balance and pay no interest on the transferred funds for 12 months, with no balance transfer transaction fee. But that’s not all: with Discover More, you could (and still can) get a 0% rate on new credit card purchases for 12 months to boot. It’s no wonder that the Discover More family of credit cards has been a top-ranked collection of credit cards at many top-rated websites.

But DFS recently made a change to the terms and conditions associated with the Discover More family of credit cards: you now have to pay a fee for transferring a balance; the minimum transfer fee is $10. The Discover More group of cards still offers great value, with a 0% intro APR rate on both balance transfers and new purchases for one year, but the nascent balance transfer transaction fee may turn off some folks out there in the market for a hot, 0% credit card deal.

OK, now for the good news: Citi®, American Express®, Bank of America® and Pulaski Bank still offer consumer credit cards where you can transfer a balance at zero percent for 6 or 12 months (depending on the card) and pay no balance transfer fee. Furthermore, Citi® and CitiBusiness® have business credit cards that provide an option to transfer balances at 0% without charging a transaction fee.

If you plan on hunting (or continuing your hunt) for an attractive 0% credit card deal after reading this article, remember two things:

In your search for “no fee balance transfer” 0%

Craps Online Betting: A Comprehensive Guide

Craps is a dynamic dice game that offers a variety of betting options, making it a favorite among online casino enthusiasts. This guide explores the different types of bets you can place in online craps, from the popular Pass Line Bet to the intriguing Hardways. Learn how each bet works, the odds involved, and some fascinating statistics that few people discuss.

Types of Craps Online Bets
Pass Line Bet

The Pass Line Bet, also known as the “Front Line,” is the most popular and straightforward bet in
craps. You are essentially betting that the shooter will win. This bet is typically placed before the “Come Out” roll. If the first roll results in a 7 or 11, you win. Conversely, you lose if a 2, 3, or 12 is rolled.

Winning Odds: Approximately 49.29%
House Edge: 1.41%

Don’t Pass Bet

The Don’t Pass Bet is the opposite of the Pass Line Bet. Here, you are betting that the shooter will not win. This bet is also known as the “Back Line.”

Winning Odds: Approximately 47.93%
House Edge: 1.36%

Odds Bet

An Odds Bet can be placed once the shooter establishes a point in the “Come Out” roll. This bet can be added to your Pass Line or Don’t Pass wager. The casino has no advantage in this bet, making it a popular choice for seasoned players.

House Edge: 0% (True Odds)

Come Bet

The Come Bet functions similarly to the Pass Line Bet but is made after the point is established. The next roll becomes the “Come Out” roll for your bet. A Come Bet wins with a 7 or 11 and loses with a 2, 3, or 12. If any other number is rolled, your wager moves to that number, and you must hit the point before a 7 is rolled to win.

Winning Odds: Approximately 49.29%
House Edge: 1.41%


A Hardways bet involves betting on doubles, such as 4+4 (Hard 8) or 5+5 (Hard 10). These bets are more challenging to win but offer higher payouts.

Winning Odds: Varies (e.g., Hard 8 has a 9.09% chance)
House Edge: 9.09% for Hard 6 and Hard 8, 11.11% for Hard 4 and Hard 10

Enhance Your Economic Opportunities with an Eb-5 Investor Visa

If you want to be an American citizen yet you don’t meet the ordinary requirements of citizenship such as through naturalization, registration or being born in the country; your best alternative is to look for $1,000,000 or at least $500,000 for you to get an eb5 investment visa. These are the kinds of moneys that will grant you citizenship if you can manage to find an investment plan that will be acceptable to the US immigration authorities. This program that allows potential investors to become American citizens is called eb-5 investor visa. It has terms and conditions that are not difficult to meet if you are a determined investor.

Given below are some of the requirements that you should meet:
• Have a clean source of investment capital. This can come from inheritance, direct

earnings, a grant or from any other lawful source; you should have documentation to show its source in terms of income statements, pay slips, title documents and tax remittance forms.
• Employ at least 10 Americans excluding your family members or dependents.

However you should have an open mind that the entire process may not be easy as it is depicted. It is a fact that most of these regional centers are adept in marketing their services by publishing interactive and nice looking brochures which do not necessarily reflect the reality on the ground. Therefore, to ascertain what you have been told, you need to contact an immigration attorney who is conversant with the affairs of the regional centers. T

The Most Popular Roulette Games

A Brief History of Roulette

Roulette, which means “little wheel” in French, has a rich history dating back to 18th-century France. The game is often attributed to Blaise Pascal, a renowned mathematician and physicist, who inadvertently created the roulette wheel while attempting to invent a perpetual motion machine. Although his machine failed, it laid mega888
mega888 apk

the groundwork for one of the most iconic casino games.

The Evolution of Roulette

Initially, roulette wheels did not feature the zero. The single zero was introduced in the 19th century by Francois and Louis Blanc to increase the house edge. The double zero, which is a hallmark of American Roulette, was added later to further enhance the casino’s advantage.
Popular Roulette Variations
American Roulette

American Roulette is distinguished by its double zero (00) in addition to the single zero (0), which significantly increases the house edge to 5.26%. This version was introduced to the United States by French immigrants in New Orleans and quickly gained popularity. The double zero was added to make the game more profitable for casinos.

Key Features:

38 pockets (1-36, 0, 00)
Higher house edge compared to European Roulette

European Roulette

European Roulette is often considered the standard version of the game. It features a single zero, which reduces the house edge to 2.7%. This version was popularized by Francois and Louis Blanc, who set up their first casino in Germany due to gambling restrictions in France. The game later gained immense popularity in Monaco, thanks to Prince Charles of Monaco III.

The Timeless Allure of Art: A Journey Through Creativity and Expression

Art, in its myriad forms, is a timeless testament to human creativity and expression. It transcends boundaries, communicates profound emotions, and offers a glimpse into the soul of both the creator and the beholder. From the earliest cave paintings to contemporary digital masterpieces, art has been an integral part of human civilization, reflecting our history, culture, and innermost thoughts.

The Evolution of Art

Art’s journey through history is as diverse and dynamic as humanity itself. The prehistoric era’s cave paintings, like those in Lascaux, France, reveal early humans’ attempts to document their experiences and connect with the spiritual world. These rudimentary images laid the foundation for the complex visual languages that would follow.

As societies evolved, so did their art. The ancient Egyptians created elaborate tomb paintings and sculptures to honor their gods and pharaohs, believing in the power of art to ensure a prosperous afterlife. In ancient Greece, art became a celebration of human beauty and intellect, with sculptures and pottery depicting gods, athletes, and everyday life in stunning detail.

The Renaissance period marked a significant transformation, characterized by a renewed interest in classical antiquity and an emphasis on realism and humanism. Artists like Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Raphael pushed the boundaries of artistic technique and subject matter, producing works that remain iconic to this day.

Art as a Medium of Expression

Throughout history, art has served as a powerful medium for personal and political expression. The Impressionist movement of the late 19th century, led by artists like Claude Monet and Edgar Degas, broke away from traditional techniques and subjects, focusing instead on light, color, and everyday scenes. This shift not only altered the course of art history but also reflected broader societal changes and the desire for new perspectives.

In the 20th century, art became increasingly experimental and abstract. Movements such as Cubism, Surrealism, and Abstract Expressionism challenged conventional

notions of form and composition. Artists like Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí, and Jackson Pollock explored the subconscious mind, dreams, and emotions, pushing the boundaries of what art could convey.

The Contemporary Art Scene

Today, art continues to evolve, shaped by technological advancements and global interconnectedness. Digital art, installation art, and performance art are just a few of the many forms that have emerged in recent decades. The internet and social media have democratized the art world, allowing artists to reach a global audience and engage with diverse communities.

Contemporary artists often address pressing social and political issues, using their work to provoke thought and inspire change. Banksy, for example, is known for his provocative street art that critiques societal norms and injustices. Similarly, Ai Weiwei’s installations and sculptures challenge political oppression and advocate for human rights.

The Impact of Art on Society

Art’s impact on society is profound and multifaceted. It fosters empathy, encourages critical thinking, and promotes cultural understanding. Art education has been shown to enhance cognitive abilities, improve academic performance, and nurture creativity and problem-solving skills in students.

Moreover, art can serve as a catalyst for social change. The Civil Rights Movement in the United States, for instance, saw artists like Jacob Lawrence and Norman Rockwell create powerful images that highlighted the struggle for equality and justice. Today, movements such as Black Lives Matter and climate activism continue to inspire artists to produce works that raise awareness and drive action.


Art is an enduring and essential aspect of human existence. It captures the essence of our experiences, challenges our perceptions, and connects us across time and space. As we continue to navigate an ever-changing world, art remains a beacon of creativity, offering endless possibilities for expression and understanding. Whether through a classical painting, a digital illustration, or a piece of graffiti, art’s timeless allure will continue to inspire and transform us for generations to come.

How to Find the Best Gaming Laptops under 90000 by Display?

A. Screen Size and Resolution:

Though many of us think that a large display might be the best fit for gaming, it is not always true. Most of the time the large display won’t give you the ultimate viewing experience you are looking for. This is great why a compact size is recommended. For this budget, any gaming machine with a minimum 15 inches is perfect. And for the resolution, a full HD visual in a 1920 x 1080 screen resolution is fair enough for 70k. However, if you find a machine with more than 15 inches display size and an FHD resolution, we will suggest you to go after that.


B. Refresh Rate:

There are three types of screen refresh rate found in the modern-day gaming laptops: 60 Hz, 120 Hz, and 144 Hz. The refresh rate is important in gaming, as it will allow the machine to load the real-time images without any buffering. And, under the 70k budget you will easily get tonnes of devices with 120 Hz refresh rate, which is enough for gaming, video editing, and streaming HQ media files. Anything less than that will not be up to the mark, but if you find a machine featuring 144 Hz refresh rate in this budget, you should go after that.

C. Response Time:

Apart from the above two specifications, response time is one more thing that you need to check on the display screen while you are finding the best gaming laptops under 70000. With years of experience handling various machines, we will suggest you choose a machine that features a response time less than 3ms. Anything more that can cause screen ghosting in the middle of gaming and freeze the game frame.

D. Aspect Ratio:

Vitamin C skin care – The challenge

Vitamin C is often regarded as a wrinkle fighter or an anti-aging agent. The main objective of ‘Vitamin C skin care’, in scientific terms, is to increase the synthesis of collagen (a structural protein that is found in skin).  The additional benefit of ‘Vitamin C skin care’ is related to its capability of countering free radicals which cause damage to the skin. Vitamin C skin care, however, faces a major challenge today. This is related to the oxidation tendency of Vitamin C skin care products. On coming in contact with any oxidising agent (e.g. air), the Vitamin C in the Vitamin C skin care products,  gets oxidised; thus making the Vitamin C skin care product useless (in fact counter-effective). The oxidised Vitamin C imparts a yellowish-brown colour to thes Vitamin C skin care product. This is something that you need to check before buying a Vitamin C skin care product. Even after you buy a Vitamin C skin care product, you need to store it properly and keep checking that it’s still good to use (i.e. it hasn’t attained a yellowish-brown texture). The manufacturers of Vitamin C skin care products have tried to deal with this (oxidation) problem in multiple ways (and research on Vitamin C skin care products is on the top of their list). One such method of retaining effectiveness of Vitamin C skin care products for a long term is to keep a high concentration (say 10%) of Vitamin C. However, this makes the Vitamin C skin care products even more expensive. The Vitamin C skin care products are already pretty inexpensive and making them even more expensive will throw the product manufacturers out of business. The other way is to use Vitamin C derivatives (like ascorbyl palmitate and magnesium ascorbyl phosphate). These are not only more stable but also inexpensive.  Even though the derivatives based products are not as effective as the Vitamin C skin care products, their stability against oxidation is a very desirable feature that makes them very attractive.  Moreover, these are known to be less irritating too. Talking of effectiveness of Vitamin C skin care products, it’s important to mention that not everyone responds to Vitamin C treatments. So it’s not a magic potion in any way.  If you don’t see a noticeable difference in your skin, it might be because of your skin not responding to Vitamin C treatment (and the Vitamin C skin care products might not be at fault, at all). As more research goes on, one can only keep our fingers crossed and wait for a complete solution to the challenges faced by ‘Vitamin C skin care’ today.

Australian Terrier: Your Ultimate Small Dog Guide

Balancing Alertness with Affection

The Australian Terrier thrives when it’s able to fulfill the role of an alert watchdog, innately perceptive to any changes in its environment. This breed’s watchful nature makes it an excellent guard dog, always at the ready to protect its territory and loved ones. Yet, its keen alertness doesn’t detract from the warmth it extends to its family. These terriers demonstrate unabated affection and devotion to their owners, often forming an unbreakable bond signifying deep-rooted companionship.
The Importance of Consistent Training

Despite its smaller size, the Australian Terrier’s feisty personality necessitates consistent training to navigate its eagerness to dig and fondness for a spirited chase. The breed’s intelligence lends itself well to learning; however, early and continuous training is crucial to curtail any undesirable behaviors. A systematic approach to training, coupled with patience and positive reinforcement, can
channel this terrier’s energy into constructive habits, reinforcing its natural propensity to please and concurrently respecting its spirited tenacity.
Coping with the Australian Terrier’s Independent Nature

Owners of the Australian Terrier will observe that an independent streak runs deep within the breed. This characteristic, a hallmark of the breed’s identity, requires acknowledgment and respect. The independent nature of this terrier means that it may not always seek approval before acting on its instincts. Therefore, acclimation to a variety of situations and early exposure to other pets and dogs is paramount to foster social skills and discourage dominance, ensuring a well-rounded canine citizen.

A good motivator to keep you on track is to have a family member, friend, or coach hold you accountable.  If you slip up in your efforts to proactiv

Boost Self-Esteem Rapidly: Effective Strategies for Immediate Results

Understanding Self-Esteem×280&!5&btvi=2&fsb=1&dtd=76894

Self-esteem is fundamentally about how we value ourselves. It affects every aspect of our lives, from how we operate in our careers to the quality of our relationships. Low self-esteem can be a barrier to achieving our full potential. According to the American Psychological Association, self-esteem levels can influence life satisfaction, happiness, and the ability to cope with stress.

Practical Steps to Enhance Self-Esteem

Change Your Wardrobe, Change Your Mindset

Dress Confidently: Clothing significantly impacts our self-perception. A study from Northwestern University introduced the term “enclothed cognition” to describe the influence that clothes have on the wearer’s psychological processes. Wearing clothes that make you feel confident can boost your self-assurance.

Monitor Your Self-Talk

Implement a ‘Self-Talk’ Swear Jar: Place a jar in a visible location and each time you catch yourself using negative self-talk like “I can’t” or “I’m not good enough,” put a quarter in it. This method acts as a cognitive behavioral technique, helping to reduce negative patterns by increasing awareness of them.×280&!6&btvi=3&fsb=1&dtd=76895

Prioritize Personal Pleasure

Schedule Regular ‘Me’ Time: Engaging in activities that you love, whether it’s crafting, cooking, or playing music, can significantly boost your mood and self-esteem. Personal satisfaction is crucial in fostering self-worth.

Indulge Yourself

Enjoy Your Favorite Foods: Allowing yourself an occasional treat meal without guilt can reinforce positive feelings and can be a celebration of self-care.

Alter Your Routine

Switch Up Your Daily Habits: Small changes like using your non-dominant hand to brush your teeth or taking a different route to work can heighten awareness and help break patterns of negative thinking.

Dance Away the Blues

Therapeutic Dancing: Research indicates that dance can decrease depression and improve psychological wellbeing. A study in the Arts in Psychotherapy journal found that dance movement therapy can promote emotional expression and foster social integration, which can be beneficial for those with low self-esteem.×280&!7&btvi=4&fsb=1&dtd=76884

Prioritize Sleep

Get Adequate Rest: Lack of sleep can affect your mood and self-esteem. The National Sleep Foundation recommends 7-9 hours of sleep per night for adults, as proper rest can lead to better health, mood, and cognitive function.

Embrace Humor

Find Reasons to Laugh: Laughter can be a powerful tool against stress and low self-esteem. Humor can disrupt negative thought cycles and provide a fresh perspective on challenging situations.

Reflect on Progress

Avoid Dwelling on the Past: Focusing too much on past mistakes can hinder self-esteem. Practice mindfulness and redirect your thoughts to present achievements and future aspirations.

Use Positive Affirmations

Practice Saying ‘Happy’: Repeating positive words or phrases can influence the way you feel. Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) suggests that such “pattern interrupts” can change habitual thinking.×280&!8&btvi=5&fsb=1&dtd=76863

Model Confidence

Channel Your Role Models: Think of someone you admire for their confidence and emulate them. This “fake it till you make it” approach can build genuine self-assurance over time.

Engage in Play

Incorporate Play into Problem-Solving: Turning a challenging situation into a game can lighten the mood and make the problem seem more manageable, enhancing your coping skills and self-esteem.

Help Others

Experience the ‘Helper’s High’: Helping others can lead to a rush of endorphins, boosting your mood and self-esteem. Engaging in volunteer work or simple acts of kindness can have profound effects on your self-pe

Self Employment Tax

Self Employment Tax  Self Employment and Taxes

 Self-employment tax is a tax consisting of Social Security and Medicare taxes primarily for individuals who work for themselves. It is similar to the Social Security and Medicare taxes withheld from the earning of most wage earners. You can compute self-employment tax (SE tax) yourself using Schedule SE (Form 1040). Social Security and Medicare taxes of most wage earners are figured by their employers. Also you can deduct the employer-equivalent portion your SE tax in figuring your adjusted gross income. Wage earners cannot deduct Social Security and Medicare taxes.

 The 2010 Tax Relief Act reduced the self-employment tax by 2% for self-employment income earned in calendar year 2011. The self-employment tax rate for self-employment income earned in calendar year 2011 is 13.3% (10.4% for Social Security and 2.9% for Medicare). The Temporary Payroll Tax Cut Continuation Act of 2011 extended the self-employment tax reduction of 2% for calendar year 2012 so the rates for 2011 remain in effect for 2012. For self-employment income earned in 2010, the self-employment tax rate is 15.3%. The rate consists of two parts: 12.4% for social security (old-age, survivors, and disability insurance) and 2.9% for Medicare. For both 2010 and 2011, the first $106,800 of your combined wages, tips, and net earnings are subject to any combination of the Social Security part of self-employment tax, Social Security tax, or railroad retirement (tier 1) tax.

Navigating the Landscape of Respite and Home Care Service

Understanding Respite Care: A Relief for Caregivers

Respite care is a service that provides temporary relief for primary caregivers, allowing them to take a break from the demands of caregiving. This type of care can be provided in various settings, including the care recipient’s home or specialized facilities. It can range from a few hours to several weeks, depending on the needs of the caregiver and the individual receiving care.

The Importance of Respite Care

Caregiver burnout is a significant concern, with long-term caregiving leading to physical and emotional exhaustion. Respite care addresses this issue by offering caregivers a chance to rest and recharge. According to the National Alliance for Caregiving and AARP, approximately 53 million Americans serve as unpaid caregivers for adult family members or friends. The availability of respite care can make a substantial difference in their lives, reducing stress and improving overall quality of life.×280&!5&btvi=2&fsb=1&dtd=2168

Inpatient services are typically provided in nursing homes or long-term care facilities, where care recipients can stay for a set period. Outpatient services, on the other hand, may include in-home care or adult day care programs, where individuals can participate in social and recreational activities in a safe environment.
