homeinvasionMany of us have always thought that a home invasion was the same thing as a break-in or burglary, but they are completely different in that the criminals that are committing the home invasion count, in fact plan, on the fact that there are people home during the invasion. They want us to be home for the mere fact that they can FORCE the victim to give up their valuables because these criminals get a kick off of threatening someone of violence or even death.

Possibly one of the most dreadful crimes out there probably is a home invasion.It could be because a home invasion destroys the basic foundation and emotional content of an individual personal control by violating the peaceful serenity of one’s private intimacy domicile. Perpetually these criminals also conduct an invasion of your home for the purposes of looting and stealing with the added major crimes against a person such as kidnapping, torture, rape, and murder to name a few.

It can be known that since these crazy predators are taking advantage of the home’s privacy, thus making them feel more secure, sex crimes and murders tend to take place more often in a home invasion.

Home Invasion/Crime Facts and Figures

Property Crime Facts:

According to the FBI in the US: www.fbi.gov

  • One property crime happens every 3 seconds.
  • One burglary occurs every 10 seconds.
  • One violent crime occurs every 20 seconds.
  • One aggravated assault occurs every 35 seconds.
  • One robbery occurs every 60 seconds, or 1 minute.
  • One forcible rape occurs every 2 minutes.
  • There were over 2 million burglaries in 2005.
  • An increase in burglary offenses was the only property crime to increase in 2005 compared with the prior year data.

Home Invasion Facts:

  • According to a United States Department of Justice report:
  • o38% of assaults & 60% of rapes occur during home invasions.
  • o1 of every 5 homes will experience a break-in or home invasion. That’s over 2,000,000 homes!
  • According to Statistics Canada, there has been an average of 289,200 home invasions annually over the last 5 years.
  • Statistically, there are over 8,000 home invasions per day in North America
  • According to Statistics U.S.A., there was an average of 3,600,000 home invasions annually between 1994 and 2000.

So what are the odds of being a victim of a home invasion? Perhaps a better question is what are my odds of preventing one? Well, Don’t Make It Easy for Them to Physically Break in.

A criminal, especially a veteran, who is determined, is eventually going to find their way into any home.A homeowner’s job is to find a way to buy some time by making the criminals’ break-in a little tougher than usual.Rather than waking up in the middle of the night with some psycho shining a flashlight in your face while he’s stabbing you in your bed, if you awaken at the noise of a difficult break in, this allows you to escape or gun up and get ready, while you dial 911 and wait for the police.

There are several angles at which to approach home fortification. Certainly home protection devices such as the Dual Function Door Brace or the Super Door Stop Alarm and windows modifications are a priority. There’s something newer out there than standard window bars called Hurricane film for windows which is a transparent stick on glass coating that’s supposed to be amazingly resistant to typical foot or object breakage.

Protect your home with some sort of loud audible alarm device. Before ADT and silent police alerting alarm companies dominated, there used to be something called an “Outside Ringer”. Mostly at businesses and factories, it was nothing more than a large and raucous and hammer and bell ringer that could sometimes be heard for hundreds of yards away. It was hooked up by a magnetic door or window sensor and when set off somebody would hear it and always call the police. Burglars would know this and quickly leave. Homeowner’s are quickly taking advantage of survival kits that provide various devices for protection.

The easiest and quickest solution for your home defense is to have a good defensive barking dog, an outside emergency ringer/anti intrusion alarm system, a stun gun/taser and a high capacity pistol or at least one of the above if one or another is not an option.

Even your car alarm on your wireless key chain lock could function as a “panic button” outside ringer hack, if your car is in range. So you could keep your spare one with duplicate car keys in a belt key chain or in your pocket as you walk around your place.

Just by doing at least some of the above proactive measures, and expanding from there when you can, will create an environment that is uninhabitable for most, if not all, home invaders. Usually they’ll stop the invasion and run away at the first layer of defense when it begins to disrupt their plans.

Start now on improving your security situation as soon as you can. You won’t be sorry!

When it comes to skin care products, you will find that a lot of people are very particular about using only natural skin care products. They treat all the synthetic products as harmful to the skin.

So, are natural skin care products the answer to all of our problems? What if a natural skin care product is not available for the treatment of a particular skin disorder? Are the synthetic skin care products so harmful that they should be banned?

banner2Different people have different answers to these questions. However, the reality is that due to presence of synthetic preservatives, it’s really tough to find a natural skin care product that is 100% natural. There are natural skin care products that have natural preservatives, but their cost might be detrimental. Moreover, such natural skin products have a shorter shelf life and hence are not preferred by the manufacturers of natural skin care products.

Some people carry a wrong notion that since natural skin care products are natural, they cannot cause any harm to the skin. The suitability of a skin care product is not based on whether it is synthetic or natural. An unsuitable natural skin care product can harm you in almost the same way as a synthetic one. So, use natural skin care products, but be open to synthetic ones too (you might need them when a natural solution is not available) 

Your selection of a natural skin care product should be based on 3 factors: young

  1. The skin type (dry, oily, normal, sensitive) of the person who will use that natural skin care product 
  2. The climatic conditions in which it will be used e.g. hot and humid condition would warranty the use of oil-free natural skin care products.
  3. The process for application/use of the natural skin care product. A good natural skin care product (in fact any product) can seem useless if not used in the proper way. 

You can also make natural skin care products by yourself, by using the recipes that are readily available on the internet and in the books at book stores.

Use of organic fruits and vegetables is also popular as a natural skin care procedure. Some essential oils, herbal oils, are useful too and are known for their moisturizing and antiseptic properties.

However, using a natural skin care product does not mean that you can exercise carelessness with other aspects of skin care. Natural skin care products should be used like supplements to the following ‘essential’ recommendations: healthy eating habits (avoiding oily food), regular exercise, drinking a lot of water (8 glasses everyday), and cleanliness. This will then form a perfect and completely natural skin care routine that will help maintain a healthy beautiful skin for longer time.

age

 

‘Antiaging skin care’ is a very poplar concept in today’s world. Today everyone wants to hide their age using antiaging skin care procedures (and a number of people are successful too). However antiaging skin care is not achieved by any magic potion. ‘Antiaging skin care’ is about discipline. It is about being proactive. Antiaging skin care is retarding the aging process. Here are a few tips for proactive antiaging skin care:

1. Maintain healthy eating habits: A well balanced diet is the key to maintaining a proper body metabolism. Eat a lot of fruits and vegetables (raw), they are the best source of fiber and have a very refreshing effect on your body. Avoid oily and fatty food; not only do they lack in essential nutrients but also cause obesity and other diseases which aid the aging process 1369_Page_3

2. Beat stress: This is probably the most important antiaging skin care measure. Stress disturbs the body metabolism and accelerates the aging process. Sleep, exercise and a relaxing bath, are all good ways of beating stress. Aroma-therapy is also known to bust stress. 

3. Drink a lot of water: Antiaging skin care can’t be any simpler than this. Water helps in flushing out the toxins from the body, hence keeping it clean and making it less prone to disease. Around 8 glasses of water (per day) is recommended by all doctors.

4. Regular exercise is a wonderful antiaging skin care procedure. Besides toning your muscles, it also helps in cleaning the skin by flushing out the toxins in the form of sweat. Exercise should be followed by a warm shower in order to completely remove the toxins.

5. Avoid the use of strong, chemical based products on your skin. Natural skin care products are a good option. Use of organic skin care products (home made or commercial) can be a very effective antiaging skin care measure.

young6. Do not overuse skin care products. Excessive and harsh application, both are harmful.

7. Do not ignore skin disorders; it can lead to permanent skin damage. Try over the counter medication and if that doesn’t help, immediately visit your dermatologist and seek his/her advice.

8. Vitamin C based skin care products are very popular means of antiaging skin care. However, these seem to oxidize very quickly (which makes them harmful for the skin). So store them properly. If the product turns Yellowish brown, it means that vitamin c has oxidized and the product is no longer suitable for use.

9. Protect your skin against UV radiation ; UV rays are known to speed up the aging process. So, a good sunscreen lotion should be a part of your antiaging skin care routine.

resumelogoIn today’s competitive job market, employers relay on well-written resumes to screen potential candidates. In many instances, employers look through job search web sites, such as CareerBuilder.com or Monster.com, to find professionals with skills, education and experience that fit their needs. These employment search web sites, along with many companies’ own online applications, require candidates to upload their resume in order to express interest in a specific opportunity. Without an opportunity to send a personal email, or a cover letter, you have to make sure that your resume expresses your personality in addition to listing your professional and educational experiences and achievements. To do so, you can include a professional profile or summary at the beginning of your resume that allows you to market yourself through a narrative. This section allows your potential employers to learn something unique about you and your career, as well as get a good feel of your communication skills.

To write an effective summary, you should first understand what information should not be communicated in your resume. While a summary provides an insight into what is unique and competitive about you, it is not a place for you to indicate any personal information that does not relate to your career. Information such as ethnicity, marital status, sexual orientation, religious beliefs and affiliations, etc. should be left out of your resume. While descriptive of who you are, this information is not relevant to your potential employer in order to pre-screen your qualifications for their opportunity. Additionally, the summary should not contain your previous professional experience, unless you can clearly demonstrate how such background can be of value in your future career development. Beware of generic statements, such as “I am well organized and detail oriented.” Employers want to hear your unique voice and get a sense of your communication skills while reading the summary portion of your resume. Using generalizations about your abilities will make the employers believe that you are either a poor communicator or are using such statements to fill up space on your resume.

Your summary should be in form of a short paragraph or bulleted statements, containing only several sentences. There isn’t a sentence limit, but as a rule do not take up more than one quarter of the page. Your summary should begin by a headline that summarizes your professional title and/or your professional statement. Emphasize your title by featuring the headline in bold and larger font, as it allows your potential employer to grasp who you are quickly. For example:

Financial Planning Professional
Achieved Double-Digit Return for All Clients through Well-Balanced Financial Portfolios

It is important that this title is well crafted, as it is the first impression your potential employer will have of you.

There are three things a well-written summary should address:
–    Your experiences and skills as they relate to your idea job
–    What you can bring to the organization and the open position that no other candidate can
–    Your professional goals.

Even though your resume summary is written by you, it should be composed in third person, in present tense. Think of it as a summary of what one of your best colleagues would say about your professional achievements. Reinforce your title, and sell only the experiences and skills that meet your career objective. If you have multiple career objectives, such as you wish to get a position in either marketing or public relations, develop separate resume summaries for each of the objectives.  A summary can also contain a brief bulleted section highlighting only a few vital competitive skills that you bring to the table. An example of an effective summary would be as follows:

Successful financial planning professional with over 15 years of personal and retirement planning experience. Managed a small financial planning firm, achieving double-digit financial returns for all clients by developing personalized investment portfolios. Leader in development and professional growth of four other financial planners in the firm through effective and motivating mentoring strategies.

Key competencies include:
o    Personalized portfolio development
o    Financial forecasting
o    Retirement portfolio management
o    Development on-going professional growth strategies

Much like your overall resume, your summary should be well-written and error-free. Make sure to review your summary, and customize as necessary for the various opportunities of interest. An effective summary will help you “hook” your employer; it should sell you as a primary candidate for the job, leaving your employer with a great first impression of you.

resumelogoA resume is a one- to two-page document summarizing your career objectives, professional experiences and achievements, and educational background. The heading of the resume should contain your name, address and contact information. The body of the resume should be broken into the following sections: career objective, profile/summary, professional experience, achievements, scholastics, and references.

Your career objective should be brief, up to two sentences; it should give your potential employers an idea of how you wish to move forward in your professional life. A concise profile or a summary should discuss who you are and how your skills and experience best apply to the job you are interested in. The summary, as well as other parts of your resume, should not contain personal information that discloses ethnicity, sexual orientation, marital status, age, living situations, or any other personal information that is not directly related to your career.

Personal profile/summary should only contain a few well-written sentences that convey what you can bring to the table in terms of the specific job. Use this section to attract the employer’s attention, but don’t go overboard in trying to be creative – stay professional. Your experience listing should include information on one to five jobs you’ve held, starting with your current or last job, and listing previous positions in chronological order. The listing should include the date range of your employment, name of the companies or person(s) you have worked for, and the city and state where the place of employment is located (full address of employment is not necessary). List your title and your main responsibilities, with emphasis on duties that are applicable to the type of work you are seeking. Your education should include college, graduate and post-graduate work, as well as any courses or professional certifications that are relevant to your career development. Achievements, volunteer positions, publications and interests should only be listed if they apply to your professional work experience References should be listed if requested; best practices suggest not to list generic statements about references being available upon request as this is understood.

In the competitive, internet-driven world of job searches, your resume represents you to potential employers. It serves as your tool to attract attention, get the interview and/or get a job. A great resume will make you stand out from other candidates by showcasing your aptitudes. Think of your resume as your sales pitch – you need to sell yourself in the best possible way. Invest some time and research into developing your resume. You will want to make sure that your resume is error free – double check your grammar and spelling, make sure that all company and school names and cities are spelled properly. A resume containing errors, no matter how minimal, will give your potential employer an impression that you do not have attention to detail, that you don’t take time to double check your work, and that you are a poor communicator.

Additionally, make sure that your resume is formatted well. Stick to basic fonts, like Arial and Times New Roman. Keep the font size and color standard; don’t use large fonts or multi-colors in your resume. Don’t go overboard with bold, italicized, or large-cap text. Keep your format consistent and make sure that the resume looks great when viewed online as well as when printed out. Keep your resume to one or two pages – any additional pages give an impression that you either don’t know how to concisely summarize your education and experience, or that you are listing unnecessary information for the sake of taking up space. If you’ve never written a resume before, reference books, Internet resources or seek assistance from a professional resume writing service. A well-written resume can make a difference between being stuck at your current job and getting an interview to land the job of your dreams.

banner1From the beginning of our birth, our body endures many changes. As we reach young adolescence, however the body experiences a series of senescence, or bodily changes abnormal, which the bodily functions start to decline. The body makes these changes, which most people will notice, the difference.

The musculus-skeletal system is the first area that most diseases and illnesses start. For this reason once, a person turns 35 years of age regardless of their activities, athletic nature, etc. Still, one can reduce such disease by avoiding injuries to the muscles and joints. You can do this by avoiding accidents when possible, abuse, excessive alcohol, drugs, tobacco and so on. You can increase your health by exercising, eating healthy, socializing with positive people, and avoiding environmental toxins.

Visiting your doctor is essential to prevent disease as well. When you visit your doctor, he takes the time to study your physical status based on the family history you gave to him. The doctor will consider family history, including hereditary diseases. Your doctor will take family history into consideration as he studies diagnostics, cures, prevention, and treatment to help you avoid disease. As noted earlier, our body starts to refuse by age 35, which our sensory organs will also start to take a rain check. At this time, the eyes are affected since they cannot remain focused on objects up close. In medical terms, this condition is known as presbyopia. This is why you see many people in the world over the age 40 wearing glasses, contact lens, bifocals and so on. Still, you see the younger generation with these same needs, which is a clear sign that aging progression is starting earlier for some. This is a note signaling hereditary makeup, or lifestyle based on environment, etc.

Many people as they grow older lose a degree of hearing. In some instances, people go deaf after 40. This condition is called presbycusis, which is a sign of aging. Since this condition is common for those aging, it is natural to dislike things you once liked. For instance, if you enjoyed concerts when you were younger, and now find that you do not enjoy concerts at all, it is because your hearing has changed, which means that the high-pitch of hearing is affected, which slowly wore down the lower hearing tone. When hearing is impaired, it often seems like those talking are inarticulate. Since the hearing is tarnished, the person will hear speech differently. For instance, the use of K may sound distorted, which affects comprehension. In other words, a person older may here the CH in a word, such as Chute Up, and think that someone is telling them to shut-up. The CH is distorted. You can help those with hearing difficulties by learning sign and body languages to help them relate to you. These people can also benefit from hearing aids, or Assistive Listening Devices. The devices act as hearing aids, since it allows a person to block out noise in the background while focusing on the speaker.  

We see natural healthy aging in this picture, yet in some instances aging signs are unnatural. For instance, if you incur lung cancer based on your history of smoking, or being around second-hand smoke, then the cause is unnatural.

As a person grows older his or her, weight changes as well and more so for those with family history of obesity. The body fat starts to change up to 30% by the time a person reaches 40. The changes affect the body tremendously, since this is the start of wrinkles and other natural aging signs.

Resume

Have you tried looking for a new job lately? Well just so you know, the process of looking for a new job has changed considerably. There was once a time when professionals would print out their resume and mail them to hiring managers, well those times are well in the past. In today’s busy world, resumes and cover letters are largely uploaded via the Internet or emailed directly to a company’s human resources department.

How you send your resume is not the only facelift that any job seeker must make. Just over the past decade, resumes themselves have gone through a change too. Therefore, you might want to tweak your existing resume in the following ways to increase your chances of finding a new job – especially if you’re a professional!

  • Show accomplishments rather than responsibilities – A majority of hiring managers have been doing their jobs for some time that they have become knowledgeable enough to understand the responsibilities of certain positions. For example, let’s say your previous employment was as a Regional Sales Manager. Instead of listing or summarizing your responsibilities, put what accomplishments you achieved during your time with that employer. It is recommended that in this area you be as specific as possible, listing any sales goals you exceeded and awards you might have won. Your achievements are what set you apart from other candidates with similar work histories, so use your resume to highlight those achievements instead of listing your responsibilities.
  • Keep things brief – Briefness should be your best-friend when emphasizing your accomplishments on your resume. Utilize your accomplishments on your resume, but make sure that you keep it short, sweet and to the point. That should be enough to secure an interview, and that’s when you can go into greater detail. But try to keep your resume to one or two pages.
  • Remove older positions – This is especially important if you’re a seasoned professional. I can guarantee you that after reading about your accomplishments as a Regional Sales Manager and an Operations Manager, no hiring manger wants to see an old position, such as a long-ago college internship . On the other hand, if you have long since changed careers, you may not need to include much about your previous positions in another field, especially if your work experience in your new field is extensive. Hiring managers likely won’t be interested in a past work history if it’s irrelevant to your current field.
  • Consider a new format – The times of sending your resume via snail mail has really past. In fact, I don’t know of many job postings were the hiring manager is asking for that; therefore, you probably won’t be printing your resume as a Microsoft® Word document and mailing it to prospective employers. You may want to consider a different format when submitting your resume via a company’s Web site. Word documents might be acceptable, but such documents can easily become encoded in the uploading process or won’t be readable especially if the hiring manger has a different version of Word than you do. Consider uploading your resume as a PDF or as plain text, as such formats are less likely to become scrambled during when they are uploaded or downloaded.
  • Upload your resume to a professional networking site – Having your resume on a professional networking site is starting to become more a norm than it was a few years ago. In fact, many hiring managers have even told me that they have started to ask for the applicants LinkedIn® profile instead of a resume. I am sure that many of you are hesitant to upload your resume to a business networking site such as LinkedIn®. It could be because of fear that your current employer will feel that you are looking for a new job, but I can assure you that so many professionals are now members of such sites that it’s no these type of sites are no longer associated with a job search as much as it is an easy way to keep in touch with professional contacts. In addition, many recruiters rely on sites like LinkedIn to find qualified professionals, which only makes it easier to find your next job.
