Lucky bets?

Do you feel that if it weren’t for bad luck you wouldn’t have some lucky? We all have days like this at the dog track, but if you have too many, maybe it’s time to do something about them. There ARE things you can do to improve your luck.

First of all, attitude has a lot to do with how often Lady Luck smiles at you. If you are convinced that you will never win, you probably won’t win very often. On the other hand, if you are arrogant and overconfident, you probably won’t win very often either.

Somewhere in the middle is the right balance to put you in a winning frame of mind, which is when people seem to have the most “luck.” Whether you believe in fate or think it’s all a bunch of bullshit, it seems that some people are luckier than others.

You may notice little things that help you make better dog choices. Maybe they are just naturally better at handicap. Whatever the reason, it is true that some people do better than others on the track with the same information that everyone has.

If you know someone who seems to be making a lot of lucky bets, ask him how he chooses the dogs. It could be that what looks like luck is actually a good handicap. If that’s the case, maybe, if YOU’RE lucky, they’ll tell you how they do it.

Remember, many times, what seems like sheer luck to a stranger is actually the result of a lot of time and effort behind the scenes. Lucky people are sometimes just people who don’t give up until they discover something and learn how to profit from it.

Evolution of the locksmith trade: from the conventional lock to the digital lock

Locksmith and his traditional role

When you are locked out of your home, you would generally look for a locksmith because it is never easy for an untrained person to open the lock. Even a newly trained locksmith may take longer to open a lock than an experienced locksmith. Both experience and skill are important when it comes to picking locks.

In the past, locksmiths not only open locks, they also repair locks and duplicate keys. However, key duplication is frequently done in neighborhood stores today and lock repair is often not financially viable because it is inexpensive to replace a lock. As such, the locksmith’s task has come down to picking the lock in recent years.

Lately, more people are ditching their mechanical locks and replacing them with digital locks. Why are more people replacing their locks with digital locks? What is the replacement rate for such locks? Would this have an effect on locksmiths for years to come? Could you continue your trade?

From conventional lock to digital lock: locksmith to fit or retreat

With the introduction of a digital lock and its popularity, the locksmith has to learn a new set of skills (i.e. opening a digital lock for the home and office, as well as the safe).

As for the high adoption rate of a digital lock, a locksmith service is likely to shift towards opening such locks in the coming years. In the article “Growing Adoption of Biometric Systems in Enterprises” dated May 23, 2017 provided by Transparency Market Research, there is strong adoption of a digital door lock system across all end-user industries, including residential sectors, industrial, government and trade with Asia- The Pacific market is expected to lead in terms of growth rate. The research estimated that the global market for digital door locks was valued at $ 1,161.7 million in 2016 and would continue to grow at a tremendous rate.

In Asia and around the world, we see more and more households installing digital locks due to their convenience and ease of use. Locksmiths who refuse to evolve with the digital age and acquire the new ability to open such electronic locks may be forced to retire in the next 10 to 20 years. It is a choice that must be made, that is, adapt or perish in this changing world where digital adoption is accelerating at such a tremendous rate.

How to lose 10 pounds in a week: 8 proven tips that helped me lose 10 pounds in a week

I desperately needed to lose weight for my wedding. I have lost 13 pounds in the first week and 10 pounds in the second. This is a pretty short time to lose weight, and not a very healthy one, I know. However, this rapid weight loss success was a kickoff for my weight loss journey and motivated me to continue losing weight, following healthy, natural methods later on. I am going to share every step I took in the second week that helped me lose 10 pounds in 7 days.

Keep in mind that extremely rapid weight loss is never healthy.

Here are the steps I took after the first 7 days to lose 10 pounds in a week:

1) First, I had a detox day, to cleanse my body and lose weight even faster. I made a drink of lemon juice, ginger, and honey mixed with water, and drank this detox drink throughout the day. Whenever I was hungry, I drank it. I felt good, as I normally do, no cramps, no lack of energy, nothing. This was not difficult at all and I am sure it boosted my weight loss results. I know some people do the whole week detox, but this is not for me.

2) I limited the amount of food, because I really needed to lose weight so fast. I ate a lot of vegetables, lean meat, fish, eggs, and some fruits (mainly apples and oranges). My new rule for eating was as follows: half the plate should be vegetables (I just tried to avoid too many potatoes), ¼ of the plate: white meat or fish, and the rest can be fruit (not bananas because they are too sweet and starchy ). I know that eating less is not always an option for lasting weight loss. But surely it is an option to lose weight quickly, and that was my goal. An easier way to reduce the amount of food is to get a smaller plate. However, I admit it, eating less was quite difficult. But I reached my goal and I am very happy now.

3) I added 2 apples and a can of black beans to my daily diet. I took the beans as my main meal, or I split them into 2 smaller meals and ate them with veggies on the side. This is a trick that no diet counts. And it works wonders, because 35 grams of fiber in a daily diet really supercharges weight loss. These fibers cleanse the digestive tract and improve digestion.

4) I started having breakfast and stopped eating at night. 7pm was the last hour of the day I had dinner. Breakfast boosted my metabolism and helped me burn calories faster, although I never believed it could be that important for weight loss. It also kept me energized. I drank at least 10 glasses of water during the day, and I still do – water cleanses the body, increases metabolic rate, and keeps you from feeling hungry.

5) I distributed my usual caloric intake throughout the day. I started eating 5 times a day, with smaller meals. This way I never had to go hungry.

6) I limited fatty, sweet, and not-so-healthy foods, and whenever I felt like I needed to eat something unhealthy, I would carry those meals into the early part of the day. Because the metabolism is higher in the morning compared to the evening, and this allows me to eat a donut or ice cream once every few days.

7) Instead of drinking juice, I always ate fresh fruit. The juice is too sweet to lose weight, if you are thirsty, have some water or unsweetened green tea.

8) I stayed motivated and busy all the time. I know that when you are busy you don’t have time to go to the kitchen. This works wonders.

This plan may seem too simple to lose 10 pounds in a week, but follow this plan religiously and you will see real results.

Gasoline Saver Device for SUV: Tips to Convert Your SUV to a Hydrogen Hybrid to Save Fuel

Sports utility vehicles (SUVs) are designed for people who want power and luxurious interior design for their cars. That is why most SUVs come with a large engine capacity and a wide range of additional accessories. However, many SUV owners are in a quandary right now due to high gas prices at the local pump station. Since the global supply of crude oil from the Middle East is limited, gas prices are expected to rise further in the near future. How can a car owner reduce his fuel bill? One recommendation is to install an SUV gas saving device. How does the concept work? This article will provide information on the science of turning a car into a hydrogen hybrid vehicle.

An SUV gasoline saving device in basically a kit that turns an internal combustion engine into a hydrogen hybrid machine. The device uses hydrogen gas (H2) as a supplementary energy source for automobiles. The H2 supply is generated from water through an electrolysis process. The extraction process is possible because water is made of 2 parts hydrogen and one part oxygen, hence its name H2O. The hydrogen kit collects H2 and releases it into the engine’s air intake compartment.

When the SUV’s engine is running, it will suck fresh air and hydrogen gas into the combustion chambers. A hydrogen hybrid vehicle generates energy by igniting the mixture of gasoline and H2 in the chamber. The explosion is much stronger due to the rapid combustion rate of hydrogen gas. The end result is strong engine power. In theory, when an SUV uses the same amount of gasoline with a higher horsepower engine, it has the potential to travel further, thus increasing its mileage. When a vehicle increases its miles per gallon (MPG), the car owner will experience fuel savings.

Installing an SUV gas saving device is a simple procedure. Anyone with some basic car maintenance skills will be able to convert. It’s a good idea to get a blueprint for modification to help you before you begin. Most of the good quality conversion guides can be purchased on the web. To reduce our dependence on fossil fuels, the feasible option is to install a fuel saving device in our vehicle.

How to start a commercial business plan

Millions of people want to know the secret to making money. Most have concluded that it is about starting a business. So how do you start a business? The first thing you need to do to start a business is create a business plan.

A business plan is a formal statement of a set of business goals, the reasons they are believed to be achievable, and the plan to achieve those goals. It can also contain background information about the organization or team trying to achieve those goals.

A professional business plan has ten parts.

1. Executive Summary

The executive summary is often considered the most important section of a business plan. This section briefly tells your reader where your business is, where you want to take it, and why your business idea will be successful. If you are looking for financing, the executive summary is also your first opportunity to capture the interest of a potential investor.

2. Description of the company

This section of your plan provides a high-level review of the different elements of your business. This is similar to an extended elevator pitch and can help potential readers and investors quickly understand your business purpose and unique proposition.

3. Market analysis

The market analysis section of your plan should illustrate your industry and market knowledge, as well as any of your research findings and conclusions. This section usually follows the business description.

4. Organization and management

The Organization and Management follows the Market Analysis. This section should include: the organizational structure of your company, details about your company ownership, the profiles of your management team, and the qualifications of your board of directors.

5. Service or product line

Once you have completed the Organization and Administration section of your plan, the next part of your plan is where you describe your service or product, emphasizing the benefits for current and potential customers. Focus on why your particular product will meet a need of your target customers.

6. Marketing and sales

Once you’ve completed the Service or Product Line section of your plan, the next part of your plan should focus on your sales and marketing management strategy for your business.

7. Request for financing

If you are seeking financing for your business venture, use this section to describe your requirements.

8. Financial projections

You should develop the Financial Projections section after you have analyzed the market and set clear goals. That’s when you can efficiently allocate resources. The following is a list of critical financial statements to include in your business plan package.

9. Marketing and sales

Once you’ve completed the Service or Product Line section of your plan, the next part of your business plan should focus on your sales and marketing management strategy for your business.

10. Appendix

The Appendix should be provided to readers as needed. In other words, it should not be included in the main body of your business plan. Your plan is your communication tool; as such, it will be seen by many people. You don’t want everyone to see some of the information in the business section, but certain people (such as creditors) may want to access this information to make loan decisions. Therefore, it is important to have the appendix within easy reach.

How to make your business plan stand out.

One of the first steps in business planning is determining your target market and why they would want to buy from you.

For example, is the market you serve the best for your product or service? Are the benefits of dealing with your business clear and aligned with the customer’s needs? If you are unsure of the answers to any of these questions, take a step back and review the foundation of your business plan.

The following tips can help you clarify what your business has to offer, identify the right target market for it, and create a niche for yourself.

A little sugar, wood pulp and sand, lowers the vitamins

I drive home from work early one morning. I am tired and need to stay awake. So I turn on the radio on my favorite Chicago radio station. It is around 4:30 am in the morning and the station is airing an infomercial.

This doctor is launching a new and improved vitamin that he had created. All I needed was a little noise to help me stay awake. Then I listen to your infomercial. What really caught my eye was towards the end of the show.

I was comparing your vitamin product to other brand name vitamin products. To do this, I was reading the ingredients on the package. First he started making fun of all the sugar in brand name vitamins. But then the following ingredients that were listed really caught my eye.

The first was “microcrystalline cellulose”, which he referred to as “ground newsprint.” The next ingredient was “silicon dioxide”, which he called “sand.” Wait a minute. Time here. Did you just say that there is sand and ground newspaper in the brand name vitamins? How could this be?

Several days later, I decided to do some research on the ingredients of the vitamins. It didn’t take long for me to discover that the doctor was telling the truth. One of the first websites I visited was the US Food and Drug Administration, they have an online database of food ingredients called “GRAS”, which stands for “Generally Recognized As Safe”. This is what I found out.

Cellulose comes from the cell walls of plants. It is found in the plants we eat. But it is also found in plants that we would not normally eat, such as the wood pulp of trees. All forms of cellulose contain the same biological properties. So if it is safe to eat one form, then it should be safe to eat another form such as microcrystalline cellulose.

When we eat cellulose, the human body does not absorb it, but rather leaves the body as part of a bowel movement. In small amounts, there is no evidence of harmful effects of cellulose. In large quantities it acts as a laxative. In the end I found out that cellulose has a GRAS rating, while microcrystalline cellulose does not. But according to the evidence, the FDA has not banned its use.

So why do some vitamin tablets contain cellulose (wood pulp) and silicone (sand)? The actual amount of vitamins found in one tablet is a small amount. Without some kind of padding, it would be too small to manipulate. Next you need a strong substance to help maintain the shape of the tablet. And strength to prevent the tablet from falling apart. That is why they use cellulose (wood), because wood is strong. The sand acts as a filler and as a “time-release” agent in the way the tablet dissolves.

Wood and sand are also used as inactive ingredients in other food products. This is how wood is used as an anti-caking agent. Microcrystalline cellulose (powdered cellulose) is used in Parmesan cheese so it doesn’t cake (form chunks) in the can. Silicon dioxide (sand) is an antifoam agent. So it is used in beer, to prevent the beer from foaming.

Plus, there are zero calories in sand and wood. It is also filling up. So sand and wood have become very popular in diet products. Sand is also touted as good for strong hair, nails, and bones. And the companies promoting these products were frank, about sand as an ingredient in their products.

But is it safe to eat wood pulp and sand? The GRAS reports from the US Food and Drug Administration are quite extensive. Here are a few lines from each report. Microcrystalline cellulose: “… There is no evidence in the available information on pure and regenerated cellulose, including microcrystalline cellulose, that demonstrates, or suggests reasonable grounds to suspect, a hazard to the public when used at levels that are now, or that could reasonably be expected in the future. “

Silicon dioxide: “… The question of whether or not silicon is an essential human nutrient remains unresolved. Silicon compounds consumed as added food ingredients contribute only a small proportion of the total silicon intake in the diet”.

Guitar Hero Review (PS2)

Guitar Hero is a fun music game for PS2. Guitar Hero developer Harmonix had previously created Amplitude and, earlier, Frequency. All three games are music-based games where you have to strum or button a song. Frequency was the first, and in my opinion (and that of my friends) better than the sequel Amplitude. While Amplitude had a much better shared multiplayer view, the songs weren’t that great and the feeling of playing the music actually decreased a lot on Amplitude. So when the kids come to play at my house, we generally use Frequency and not Amplitude.

Guitar Hero continues the tradition and I think it is an improvement over Amplitude. It actually includes a guitar controller, which is a medium-sized plastic guitar with five colored buttons on the neck. It “strums” a two-inch-long lever, and the guitar even includes a flexible bar. But you don’t have to use this peripheral if you don’t want to. Using the controller is a lot like frequency or amplitude, except sometimes you have to hold down notes over time, which was not a feature in previous games.

But the guitar peripheral makes it so much more fun, you’ll want to use it. The joystick ability is only useful when you are playing in two player mode against a friend and you cannot afford to buy a second guitar.

But how do you actually play a song? Easy to learn, difficult to master. The colored buttons on the neck correspond to colored dots in the moving score of the song. The sheet music really does get close to you, and when the colored dots get closer and cross a line right in front of you, you need to hold down the correct colored button while strumming the guitar. Then the note will change to a different one, so you will have to change your fingering before your next strum. Is easier than it looks like. Visit the IGN website to view the Guitar Hero videos.

How is? Fun fun fun! This is a great game with great songs and great multiplayer action. I’ve only played it in multiplayer with one controller, but having a second guitar there would be even more fun. I invited my friends to play this game and they all raved about it. If you like listening to music and you have a PS2 then you owe it to yourself to at least give this game a try.

Problems? Yes a little bit. My biggest complaint (although not that big in absolute terms, this is a great game) is that mapping music tracks to game tracks is not as fun as many of the tracks were in Frequency and Amplitude. In that game, you really got hooked and really enjoyed how the developers arranged the tracks. Guitar Hero doesn’t have the same creativity when it comes to laying out the tracks. Also, the game increases in difficulty too quickly. The hardest scenario is clearly impossible for everyone without a genetically enhanced metabolism. (This was also an issue with frequency and amplitude.)

But don’t let those things distract you from what would otherwise be a very fun game. And if you don’t want to splurge on the full price right away, you can give Frequency a try. It is an older game so it is now in many bargain bins. It’s a real gem and you can try this style of play for under $ 10.

Soft Penis Sex Tips: When Hard Isn’t Happening

A big and strong member is the goal of every man, but the reality is that sometimes what a man has to work with is a soft penis. Most of the sex advice related to the soft penis focuses on ways to make it hard, and that’s certainly commendable; However, sometimes the hardness just isn’t going to happen the way you want it to, even when a man maintains excellent penis health. For those times when relative softness is the order of the day (or night), the following sexual tips may be helpful.

A soft penis is not a disinterested penis.

Because the typical image of a sexually compromised penis is one that is as tough as steel, it is easy to forget that a man can be sexually interested and still be soft. This is especially true when a previously hard penis has become a bit flaccid. The tool still feels the need to snag, but physical conditions have caused the hardness factor to change. Couples who come across a soft penis shouldn’t take it as a sign of rejection, but it may mean that if anticipated entertainment involves penetration, there may need to be a change of plans.

Use the situation to explore.

Many men and their partners think that a soft penis that prevents penetration means not having sex. In fact, the presence of a soft penis can allow a couple to make further explorations of their bodies. The squishy partner can actually take a tour of his partner’s body, using his tongue and fingers to cause arousal in a variety of erogenous zones. And the partner can certainly return the favor.


Just because penetration is off the table does not mean there cannot be genital-to-genital collaboration. Many couples find it extremely exciting to lie face to face and rub each other’s genitals. Some also report an erotic tingling from having the woman lying down with her legs spread wide and the man kneeling by her side, taking his soft penis and tapping it gently against her lips and clitoris.

Take out the toys.

When a soft penis is presented, it can provide an excellent opportunity to test some sex toys with each other. For example, sharing a vibrator can be a tremendously sensual experience, as can each partner having a vibrator and pleasing the other at the same time. Edible underwear can add a playful and tasteful look to the evening. A dildo for a female partner’s vagina is an obvious choice, but men may also consider exploring anal penetration on their own a bit.


Masturbation is too often a solo activity, even between couples who have been together for years. Mutual masturbation is often practiced with one partner pleasing the other manually, but each partner pleasing themselves in front of the other is much rarer. Couples may want to take advantage of a soft penis to openly masturbate, recounting their experience as they go along and commenting on how exciting they find the activity in the moment. A person can discover a lot about the pleasures of their partner by watching her masturbate. (And partners don’t have to wait for a soft penis to occur to enjoy this exhilarating experience!)

There are more sex tips for when there is a soft penis, including mutual oral sex, body painting, etc., but these offer an idea of ​​what can be done. Soft or hard, the health of the bar is crucial, which is why a first-class penis health cream is used. (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil) it should be part of every man’s daily routine. The best is a cream with many amino acids and vitamins. Most men want one that includes L-arginine, an ingredient that helps in the production of nitric oxide. why is it so good? Because nitric oxide helps keep the blood vessels in the penis open. It is also advisable to look for a cream with vitamin C, which plays a key role in the formation of collagen and the firmness of the penis tissue. Applying the cream regularly helps maintain a soft penis, a hard penis, and any penis in between in better health.

Deer farming: how to bottle feed a white-tailed deer fawn

My husband and I received our first Whitetail Fawn when she was one day old. A few weeks before bringing it home, we applied through the Department of Natural Resources for our wildlife breeders license. You should get this and the number of breeders of the male and female the fawn came from. We let this fawn nurse its mother for 24 hours to get some colostrum before taking her home.

We put her in a dog cage for transportation home. Fawns are very scared and docile and are easily handled for the first few days. She was kept in the house for the first 3 weeks and then moved to a dog pen outside. The white-tailed deer can jump up from a very young age. We recommend at least 4 feet. fence until 12 weeks of age and then a fence 9 to 10 feet thereafter.

White-tailed deer are fed goat’s milk substitute. This can be found in many food stores or farms. For feeding we use a normal bottle with a rubber nipple. You can also buy a long red rubber nipple that is used for bottle feeding goats and lambs. The substitute bag will tell you how to mix the formula. We would mix a large batch and store it in a container in the refrigerator.

We start our fawn with a 3 hour feeding schedule. It is very important that these fawns feed at least 6 times a day for the first few weeks. Start with an ounce of formula. Our fawn stayed in bed for the first week and did not get up or move much. To feed her, we placed her on a towel and fed her while she was lying down. We had a lot of problems with his eating. She didn’t take the nipple well and we ended up using a syringe to force her to feed her for a few days. After mastering it, she ate like a pro. It is advisable to add 1-2 tablespoons of plain yogurt to each bottle to prevent diarrhea. Diarrhea can be fatal to a fawn and you can lose it very quickly. If the diarrhea still persists, it may be necessary to speak to a wildlife or exotic veterinarian about medication.

The reason most people lose fawns is because they don’t know to clean the deer butt after each feeding to stimulate urination and defecation. It is mandatory that this be done. Fawns cannot use their bodily functions on their own until about 4-6 weeks of age. They can easily become septic and die if not cleaned. We placed our fawn in a Rubbermaid tub with newspapers in the bottom. We used baby wipes to clean it and did this after every feeding.

At about 12 weeks of age, you can wean the fawn from the bottle. We started offering deer pellets and water in a bowl starting at week 3. She started eating solids around 8 weeks of age. We also feed clover, corn, and soy hay to supplement their diet. Our bottle feeding schedule is as follows:

Day 1-3 2 oz every 3 hours (force feeding as needed)

Day 4-7 4 oz 6 times a day

Day 8-14 6 oz 6 times a day

Day 15-21 8 oz 5 times a day

Day 22-28 8 oz 5 times a day

Day 29-35 9 oz 4 times a day

Day 36-42 10 oz 3 times a day

Day 43-49 10 oz 3 times a day

Day 50-56 12 oz 2 times a day

Day 57-63 12 oz 2 times a day

Day 64-84 16 oz once a day

Keep in mind that each deer is different and adjustments may be necessary. The main problem with bottle feeding is the overfeeding of the fawns. All deer farmers do things differently, we have found that this system is what works for us.
