Eying for a Rice Cooker with Multiple Features

To have a quick admit, I love to eat rice. Back home I ate rice 3 times in a day. I have told my husband before that without a rice maybe I gonna die. Isn't that a funny perception? 

Since I get here in North America where rice is very costly I have realized that what I have told my husband was just a lie. I felt a bit embarrassed for what I have uttered because now I have proved to myself that without a rice I can still live. lol! There are lots of carbohydrates sources out there when you look in the store. I just didn't bother to look before. 

Although I don't buy and eat much rice particularly the white ones, yet I still need a rice cooker for cooking rice for the kids. However, I am not in the search for the said appliance intended only for cooking rice but of course with other  feature such as steamer. I steamed a lot esp. the veggies.

Aside from steaming, of course I'd like several usage that I can use in a daily basis. Anyways, any type you can recommend for me to buy? I'd like also to consider the price and the quality of the little appliance to bring to our home. So if you have an idea, that would be pretty much helpful to my shopping.

How Jet Ski Lifts Protect Your Investment

When people want to skip across the water for an afternoon of summer fun, many choose to ride jet skis. Owning a jet ski is a lot of fun, but it is also a great deal of responsibility. You can refer to companies such as Lunmar Boat Lifts to find out how to protect the investment you make in your jet ski by using reliable jet ski lifts. With jet ski lifts you can protect your jet ski from the dangers you can see, and you can protect it from the dangers you never saw coming.

Jet Ski Lifts

Other Boats And Jet Skis 

One of the dangers you never see coming when your jet ski is docked is irresponsible boaters that just do not watch where they are going. When your jet ski is on its lift, it is protected from damage from other jet skiers and from those speed boat drivers that put fun ahead of safety.

Branches And Other Hazards

You just never know what kinds of hazards to your jet ski may float your way, which is why using a lift is such a good idea. A tree branch that falls into the water miles away could drift towards your dock and threaten to put a hole in your jet ski. But when your jet ski is on its lift, that branch will just go sailing on by.

Kids Playing Badminton at the Park

The favorable thing I like when living close to the park is anytime I can take the kids whenever I wanted to. Like two days ago, despite of my aching body from work I took the kids to the park as they wanted to play badminton. The snapshot found in the post is what I captured while they were playing on a very lovely day enjoying every minute outdoor. What a truly priceless moment!

Making Domestic Violence A Thing Of The Past

If you find yourself in a home situation marked by domestic violence, you should know that you don't have to deal with the physical abuse any longer. To make domestic violence a thing of the past immediately, be sure to implement the following strategies:

1. Leave The Premises.

Your first step to making domestic violence a thing of the past is to leave the premises. Staying in the home will only keep you susceptible to physical violence and emotional abuse. There are several ways that you can make living arrangements. In some cases, you can explain the situation to a close friend or family member and temporarily live with them. If you do not have close friends or family members nearby, you may find it necessary to temporarily stay at a shelter. 

2. Contact A Domestic Violence Attorney

In addition to leaving the premises, it's critically important that you contact an attorney with extensive experience in the domestic violence sector. These individuals have dealt with numerous domestic violence cases and can provide you with the guidance and legal assistance necessary to get your life back in order. An attorney such as Louis J. Goodman possesses the experience and education to assist you, and you can learn more about him by accessing his website at

Why Dishwashing Detergent Not Dissolving

Obviously, the question is clear and bold. Isn't it? How frustrating would that be if such scenario happens to you - in your own dishwasher? After the extra effort of rinsing the dishes prior to putting into the dishwasher, then the undissolved detergent will just surprise you. Ah Ah! Absolutely not good! 

Detergent Brand

Would you like to know what brand we are using? Hmmm...To give you a hint, it begins with F. Have you also experienced this kind of  result folks using the similar detergent brand? 

In our case, I don't think the problem is the temperature of the hot water running in our apartment because the disappointing result is not really consistent. Roughly, 2 times or 1's in a month.

As you can see the image, there's a moisture of the hotness and still freshly washed. Having this poor performance is totally a waste of money as I have to redo it. By the way, Kitchenaid is the brand of our dishwasher.

How to Select the Right Sneaker for the Occasion

All sneakers are not created equal. Many shoe manufacturers produce multiple types of sneakers for multiple applications. It is important to select the right pair for the occasion to ensure the most comfort possible and proper support. In terms of women's New Balance shoes, design and color options are also factors to consider. Use some of the criteria below to help you find the perfect pair of sneakers for your next outing.

How to select the right sneaker for the occasion

Long Periods of Wear

If you plan to wear your sneakers all day long, support and comfort are two of the most important elements in the equation. Sneakers that are designed with extra support help your feet from feeling fatigued or heavy. Breathable fabrics are also helpful in this respect. You need a shoe that moves with your feet, rather than a shoe that holds its form, when you will be on your feet for long periods of time.

Work Sneakers

In many industries, tennis shoes are worn due to the length of time that employees are on their feet. Some are just casual settings where tennis shoes are acceptable. If you are wearing sneakers to work, it is important to wear a pair that is comfortable, provides support and a pair that has a few safety elements in place. Look for shoes that advertise non-skid soles. This helps prevent slips and falls.

In some industries, tennis shoes are acceptable, but must be steel toed. This helps protect the top of your feet and toes from injury if heavy items fall on them. Take into consideration your industry as well as how long you'll wear the sneakers every day. Your needs must come before the brand name, design or promises made via advertising.

Design Comes Last

How to Publish Stellar Social Media Posts

How to Publish Stellar Social Media Posts

If you feel that social media is integral to your business success, you should know exactly how to publish top notch posts.

How to Publish Stellar Social Media Posts

1. Use photos in your Facebook posts. Posts with compelling imagery perform much better than posts with just text.

2. Along with companies like, social media can play a big part in helping you scale your company. However, you’ll need different content for different platforms. What works on LinkedIn won’t work on Twitter, and what works on either of those platforms won’t work on Pinterest, etc.

3. Before finalizing a post on Facebook or LinkedIn, remove the link. The link will still show up below what you write, but you don’t need to keep the link in the actual text part of the post. If you do, it’ll look like you’re a rookie marketer.

4. Use one or two hashtags on each Twitter post. Tweets with hashtags get 60% more interactions.

5. Before you add a photo to a Facebook album, post it to your regular feed. If you only add it to the album, most people won’t see it.

6. When writing a blog post, keep the title to less than 100 characters so that the entire headline will show up in your social media posts. If people don’t know what they’re about to read, they won’t be inclined to click on the link.

Call it the Future: 3D Printers Allow Us to Reimagine Mobile Phones

Call it the Future: 3D Printers Allow Us to Reimagine Mobile Phones

Let’s face it, our world has changed immeasurably since cell phones became small enough to fit into our pocket, and powerful enough to look up random Star Trek trivia. That quick accessibility is important when you’re trying to win a bet, but it’s even more useful when you need directions or want to know if a restaurant is worth your money. In fact, cell phones have become such an inextricable part of our day-to-day lives that we’re now seeing 3D-printed accessories that augment, protect, and beautify our devices. Although we haven’t reached a technological level where people can print custom cell phones from scratch, that time isn’t far off. Until then, here are two imaginative objects inspired by our phones:

The Wearable Phone Glove
It’s official — the future is here, and it comes in the form of a telephone glove. Designed by Bryan Cera, Glove One goes one step further than current wearables on the market and actually puts a phone on your hand. Like an 80s sci-fi film come to life, there are working buttons on the inside of your fingers that correspond to the number keypad. The thumb has an earphone and the pinky finger has a small microphone, so you literally hold your hand up to your face in a mimed “talking on the phone” gesture. It’s a whimsical take on the smart phone accessory, and Cera has shared detailed instructions for how to build one at home.

First, you’ll need to start by gathering all of the required materials and tools, including an unlocked cell phone to place into the device. If you’re feeling particularly confident about your engineering skills, MIT’s media lab has also shared an open-source way to build your own phone from scratch. Next, you’ll need to make a paper prototype of the glove that fits your hand, so that the end product is comfortable to wear. With the prototype as a guide, you can create a digital model of the glove using 3D graphics software, which will sync up with the 3D printer. Once the plastic parts are fabricated and printed, you’ll need to wire the electronic components together and secure the phone’s buttons into the glove. Finally, take a walk around the neighborhood with your finished product and count how many confused looks you get.

Real Estate Crowdfunding 101

Crowdfunding is another way to raise money for business ventures, pet projects, charitable causes and just about anything else. Opportunities are posted on crowdfunding websites which provides access to a much broader pool of potential investors than ever before. This method of raising capital is becoming a steadily increasing force in the real estate market as well.

The Basics

Real estate crowdfunding became more broadly available to investors in 2012. That year, the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act (JOBS) was passed. It relaxed the eligibility requirements for individuals who want to invest in crowdfunding realty; a net worth of $1 million is one of the criteria. Conventional real estate investing often required a commitment of hundreds of thousands, if not millions of dollars. The average investment size for crowdfunding real estate projects is several thousand dollars.

Landlords and developers are also benefiting because it gives them another potential source of capital besides banks and more traditional financing options, which typically have more stringent requirements. According to a June 2014 Wall Street Journal article, a number of real estate crowdfunding websites had collectively raised $135 million in equity and debt for a wide variety of owners and developers.


One of the big benefits of real estate crowd funding is the diversification it provides on many fronts.

  • Geographic

 Some real estate markets are booming and others are depressed. Through crowdfunding, investors have no geographic limitations and can pick and choose the part of the country in which they want to invest.
  •     Financial

7 Valuable Mods for Your UTV

While your side-by-side is a beautiful thing on its own, you can also dramatically increase both its utility and its market value by adding the right modifications. Here are just seven useful ways to customize your UTV.

1. Heaters

Heaters are more than just a luxury. If you're hauling cargo or breaking bricks in snowy territory, your UTV heater can genuinely save your life. Don't skimp when it comes to buying the best and staying warm.

2. Custom Seats

Who likes riding in an ill-fitting seat? Splurge for custom seats that will accommodate your weight, height and any back or spinal problems that you may have. Even if you don't suffer from such conditions, custom seats can turn an average ride into a remarkable one.

3. Harnesses

Increasing the safety of your UTV will also increase its value. Look for harnesses that follow a five-point system and have straps of at least two inches. You might also decide to spend a little extra on "quick adjusting" harnesses that will allow you to rearrange them without all the usual fuss.

4. Windshield

Your UTV windshield serves a variety of purposes. For one, it protects you from the elements; no one will enjoy a ride through sand dunes without a windshield. It can also increase your visibility on the road if you upgrade from something grimy to something grand.

The Unstoppable March of Technology Towards the Future

Many are amazed at the advances that technology has made in the past few years. Things that are commonplace today were not even imagined a century ago, and just half a century ago, they were thought to be things of science fiction. An example of this is the smart phones and tablets that everyone uses. If one was to look at the science fiction of the late 80's and early 90's, they would see that many science-fiction programs had its characters using similar devices to communicate with each other, to compute, and to record the environment around them. At the time when these devices were introduced to the public in the realm of science fiction, people thought that they were novel ideas but something that would never be seen in reality. Now, when a person walks down the street of any major city, they will see thousands of individuals using these devices.

Technology growth is seen in two different areas. One area is the products that are created and eventually delivered to customers. The other area is the tools that are designed in order to measure, engineer, and manufacture the parts that are used in the devices that are distributed to the public.

A high-quality video measuring system, like the ones produced by companies like Scienscope for example, are an essential part of the production process. Video measurement tools allow designers to take accurate measurements of small intricate parts or small features of larger parts that cannot be accurately measured otherwise. Video measuring techniques are often used in connection with microscopes and optical comparators.

It Was the Sign of Business Shut Down of Target

Months prior hearing the rumors about Target's shut down, I noticed that mostly their shelves weren't replenished even though the time of daily store closing is way far. It is the usual place where I bought milk because I find it few cents cheaper to the rest of the stores where we often have grocery shopping. At times I just went to their store to buy milk and found nothing on the shelves, I got frustrated. Who wouldn't be? An image below is an evidence of that emptiness. 

Now that Target are leaving Canada, for sure the nearby stores/supermarkets will be raising their prices. Grrrr...Not good!

Order Today Your Coins from a Reliable Seller

Collecting coins is something individuals can do for both the aesthetic and monetary values of the coins they collect. However, it is sometimes hard to figure out what to keep and what to sell. Moreover, it is difficult to find a good buyer and seller of collectible coins when it comes time to purchase coins or sell pieces of a collection. Companies like the Houston Numanistic Exchange buy and sell rare coins, so collectors can find the coins they want and sell the ones they do not. With the help of the Internet, a collectior can find a coin he or she desires and order today

Buy Coins Online

Buying coins online may seem like a risky prospect. The trick is to deal only with trustworthy sellers who have a lot of good reviews to back them up. A numismatist should not endeavor to search for coins online without first getting to know how to differentiate between a legitimate dealer of coins and a swindler. For example, Craigslist may not be a great source for coins, unless a collector is willing to take a risk. A better source would be a licensed coin dealer who provides numerous good quality photos of their products. 

Benefits Of Hiring A CPA

There are many benefits of hiring a CPA. Having someone to handle the complicated tax laws can be helpful for a person who is not mathematically gifted.

Tax Code Complications

When a person clearly understands how to take care of these obligations their stress level will be greatly reduced. Understanding of the changes in the way in which things should be reported can sometimes be difficult for people who are trying to handle the responsibilities of daily living.

Blizzard of 2015: Another Historic Snowstorm

As we were watching the coverage of the horrible White storm in New York City today, I felt lucky here in BC as we don't have such dreadful snow. Tonight, starting at 10:30 to 11:00 p.m., according to MSNBC journalist that vehicles are totally BAN, except the emergency vehicles. So drivers out there in New York should take this advice seriously. Of course, there should be also no pedestrians walking on the road at this very dangerous time. Moreover, due to this storm, there are about 6,000 flights being delayed and cancelled. 

The Blizzard of 1888, which evidently made a huge dramatic change in the city's by putting infrastructures underground, including power lines and subway trains can absolutely save hundreds of lives in the recent times. The 88 Blizzard, according to a reliable Yahoo source took off about 200 people's lives as they might not prepared for it. In comparison to now, the preparedness of the emergency teams, government officials and each and everyone in their respective dwellings can possibly minimize the severe damage on both public and private properties. 

To the people who will get affected by the storm, be safe and stay focus.

The Beneficial Factors of Having Proper Manufacturing Software

The days of the clipboard, ledger and payroll book are over. Gone are the numerous file cabinets with typed payroll sheets, shipping logbooks and check registers. Today’s companies need software to compete in the global marketplace, and enterprise resource planning software can take companies into the digital age and beyond. With the proper software, industries can effectively track inventory, payroll and orders with one application instead of numerous software systems with only one purpose each.

Manufacturing Software

ERP software began originally as an attempt to automate systems that didn’t interact with the general public. Over time, what began as an idea for dealing with front office functions began to encompass other areas; designers began asking themselves why programs couldn’t be designed to bring together all the functions of a company. With a standard interface across the spectrum, company personnel could look at order distribution, payroll, forecasting and planning, and available inventory without having to switch between programs. The interface would look the same and the commands would be the same, making business decisions and research much easier for a company’s employees.
