Health from Nature

Free radicals cause turmoil within the body.

Oxidation occurs inside the body during the normal process of metabolism. It is also caused by air pollution, radiation, cigarette smoke, sunlight, environmental chemicals and exposure of metals and biological materials (including food) to oxygen.

A free radical is an unstable molecule, often a form of oxygen, that reacts with other molecules in a destructive way. Why is this dangerous? Molecules are stable when they have pairs of electrons around their nucleus. When the number is uneven, it is unstable, and that free radical steals an electron from another molecule…this theft of electrons is called oxidation.

Free radicals are unstable oxygen molecules that punch holes into our body’s cellular walls, damaging DNA, the genetic material within. As this damage accumulates, our bodies become rusty, like an old car. A rust bucket of a car is likely to break down. A body damaged by free radicals has a reduced capability to combat aging, cancer, hardening of the arteries, and other degenerative changes. An excessive amount of free radicals cause diseases such as heart disease, cancer, etc.

Oxidation at work

Take a bite out of an apple and expose it to the air for a few minutes. The exposed flesh of the apple soon turns brown. That’s oxidation. Oxidation provides needed energy for life, yet within our bodies the process is a two-edged sword. Unfortunately, a small number of the oxygen molecules we breathe are converted within our bodies to unstable free radicals. Free radical-caused oxidation produces premature aging and sets us up for serious illness, including cancer and heart disease. Natalie Angier, science reporter for The New York Times, calls the damage by free radicals “the price we pay for breathing.”

Oxidation is literally decay. Oxidation in our environment is seen as rusting of metal, rotting of meat, browning of apples, and the brittle changes in old rubber. Oxidation in our bodies, like rust or rot, is thought responsible for premature aging, wrinkling of skin, hardening of arteries, stiffening of joints, formation of cataracts, development of cancer…

“Because of overexposure to free radicals, our bodies need help. Because our diets are inadequate, we need to take antioxidant supplements. Premature decay leads to premature aging, degenerative disease, and life-threatening illness.

The link between free radicals and disease

“It’s the most important medical discovery of the last 50 years,” claims a former heart surgeon. “In a few years, Nobel Prizes will be awarded to the scientists who are making these discoveries — Unlocking the secrets of aging, cancer, heart disease, arthritis…and a whole list of medical problems.”

What is this revolutionary discovery? It’s the link between free radical (oxidative) damage and disease. And the former surgeon and heart specialist making these bold statements also claims a 99% success rate reversing heart disease–in patients who have been told they need angioplasty or bypass surgery–with antioxidant therapy.

Robert Willix, Jr. M.D., states his case very strongly, “There is a single cause responsible for aging, cancer, heart disease, stroke, arthritis, and a host of other ailments,” he says – free radical damage. Dr. Willix calls nutritional antioxidant therapy the biggest medical breakthrough since Pasteur proposed the germ theory of disease. Poor nutrition leads to disease Many other medical experts are making equally strong statements about the relationship between nutrition and disease. In March 1994, The Alliance for Aging Research, a non-profit senior citizens group in Washington DC, announced that their panel of medical experts had concluded that “a diet rich in antioxidants is effective in guarding against heart disease, cancer, cataracts, and other conditions associated with aging.” Most of us may think that we eat balanced, nourishing meals. However, studies show that at least 80% of Americans do not get the daily recommended servings of fruits and vegetables. The most frequently consumed foods are coffee, white bread and sugar, in that order. Not to mention the shortfalls of the prevalent “fast food diet”. Even if we prepare “well-balanced” meals, how can we be sure that the food is not nutrient- poor? Due to over-farming, chemical farming, processing, and refining, the nutrient content of much of our food is questionable. Thus, many believe that the majority of Americans are overfed and under-nourished.

THE NUTRITIONAL SOLUTION: Lizard Labs and Antioxidants A common term for free radical scavenger is “antioxidant.”

Antioxidants protect our cells from unhealthy oxidation by free radicals. Many components of a healthy diet are, in fact, antioxidants. The two most well known antioxidants are vitamin C and vitamin E. Thousands of research reports have been published in scientific journals all around the world about their importance to health. Vitamin C is water soluble and is important in protecting the “aqueous” parts of our cells and tissues, while vitamin E is oil soluble and protects the “lipid” portions, especially cellular membranes. Antioxidants and other phytochemicals (phyto = plant) are Mother Nature’s protection from assaults by free radicals. Masquelier’s OPCs are as much as 20 times more potent than vitamin C and 50 times more potent than vitamin E in their ability to provide antioxidant protection. The potential benefits of antioxidants appear more obvious with each study on nutrition and disease. Some experts even predict that antioxidants will revolutionize health care – that we’ll be able to test your sensitivity to oxidative stress, treat you accordingly with specific supplements, and extend life longer than anyone currently thinks possible. “One key to stopping premature aging and preventing many degenerative diseases is for the body to be able to repair the damage that does occur. The other key is to protect the body’s tissue cells from the free radicals before they cause mutations. Antioxidants are substances with free-radical chain-reaction-breaking properties. They include any substance that significantly delays, inhibits, or prevents oxidation caused by free radicals. Phytochemicals are literally chemicals that come from plants. These plant chemicals fight many diseases. Many photochemicals are antioxidants, but they also have other properties, such as stimulating plant growth, and providing color to plants and flavor to vegetables. In humans, phytochemicals enhance the body’s own healing powers.” (Dr. Anderson’s Antioxidant, Anti-aging Health Program, by James W. Anderson, M.D. & Maury M. Breecher, M.P.H., Ph.D., 1996)

Stop the destruction

Is antioxidant therapy really the biggest medical breakthrough of the last 50 years? We believe it is, as do other prominent researchers and physicians. We also foresee that general acceptance of antioxidant therapy in the medical community will be slow. It may be another 20 years before the majority of physicians fully realize it’s importance and potential.

Until then, we can sympathize with Louis Pasteur, father of the last great breakthrough in modern medicine, who was widely ridiculed for proposing that surgeons should wash their hands before operating. WHO IS DR. JACK MASQUELIER? In 1947, Professor Jack Arthur Masquelier was the first to hold the result of his first patented invention in the palm of his hand: oligomeric proanthocyanidins, better known as OPCs. Dr. Masquelier’s products have a proven scientific track record of over half a century. They have been validated in France by the Ministry of Health and production takes place under control of French Pharmaceutical inspection. The antioxidant qualities of MASQUELIER’S� OPCs is what makes them so very potent against free radical attacks usually responsible for the many forms of atherosclerosis, heart disease, and cancer. Medical studies conducted at the University of Illinois demonstrate the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects of OPCs in the membranes of grape seeds. They have the ability to inhibit all three phases of the cancer process: initiation, promotion and progression.

Kisangani Zaire – Our Favorite Cameraman in 2020

Kisangani must have been one of the toughest stories most cameramen ever covered, we guess he use these lenses buying guide for Nikon D3500 camera. Not only were the images so horrific, beyond anything anyone had ever seen, but it also had a physical toll on the cameramen. Disease was all around. Diseases that the Western world had never even heard of. And many fell ill.

Into the Heart of Darkness The trip from Nairobi to Kisangani took the whole day, flying over the land of a thousand hills and a thousand lakes, and finally over the Zairian rainforest. This rainforest hid diseases unknown to man and science. The land where the Ebola virus is believed to have originated, where malaria, dysentery and salmonella are a part of daily life. This forest would be home to us for the next three weeks. We were all a little bit nervous, as we did not know what we would be facing there. Looking down from 19000 feet, nothing indicated the suffering and the fears of the land. Distance is a great barrier, you felt untouched, safe, flying above the clouds. From up there, the forest looked like a massive broccoli vegetable. You could not see land below, only the treetops of the tropical forest, and it made you wonder how the hell the refugees had crossed this land without perishing. We would not have survived a week in this hostile land, but the refugees had been walking through it for the previous six months. And that was where we were heading, to see those refugees, to bring their images to the attention of the outside world.

Thousand of refugees walked for months to come here

A child waits for food Located in the middle of the forest, the camp was a carrier of disease.

The refugee camp was on the other side of the Congo River. Everyday cameramen, journalists and aid workers crossed this large river, either in the state run ferry or in dug-out canoes. The ferry was in bad shape, an aid organization having donated a water pump to pump out the water the ferry took in, and the 15 minute crossing seemed to take forever. Everybody joked that you should make sure you were at one of the ends of the ferry, for if it capsized you could jump off quickly. The dug-out canoes were slower and probably not that much safer, but you could not take your vehicle on them so the ferry was the only real way to cross.

Once across, you had a one hour drive through the rain forest on a narrow dirt road, and with the constant rain the trip became exciting! But you were in no hurry to get to the camps; the images you saw there were ones many of us had seen before. These people had walked for six months through the most hostile environment, weakened by malnutrition, disease and war wounds, and it was a wonder they had made it that far. People with open skull wounds, broken limbs, dying babies…

The rain made things harder. Water (a carrier of disease) was everywhere, human extracts floating around, people lying in the mud too weak to stand. The images were apocalyptic. You couldn’t stop wondering if you had reached hell without knowing it. But the cameramen were there again, and behind the protection of the viewfinder filmed images that would remain in history, images that brought the story to the world. Editors did not have a problem of sufficient good shots; the problem they had was what they could show on TV. Did people back in Europe really need to see a woman wandering around in the mud, her head split open, maggots eating her dead brain cells?

It was hell on earth. I remember a good friend, a photographer who had seen wars and destruction so many times before, who could take no more and went home.

Those were the kind of images one confronted daily, but that was only the beginning. After we had all left that God forsaken place we soon discovered what kind of a price we had to pay for having been there. Cameramen and journalists started to fall ill, the issue being who and how they had fallen sick. Malaria was the most common cause, followed by salmonella and dysentery. One cameraman contracted something that baffled even the British Tropical Disease Center. There was one ironic story: a UN freelance photographer escaped with no illness whatsoever, only to be hospitalized in Nairobi, after being hit on the head in a mugging incident. We all felt for him, to survive in Kisangani and get it in Nairobi, that’s the way Africa makes you pay, eventually. No cameramen died from Kisangani, but the danger of disease was so great that it prompted the BBC to do a special presentation by Martin Dawes, the correspondent, on the dangers we had all faced there.

Mario Kart DS – Still the best classic game in 2020

To me, Mario is like gold. When you see his face on a game, there is a 99.9% chance that the game will be fun and innovative. He is one of the most beloved characters in videogame history. When I was in LA a few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of going hands-on with Mario Kart DS for the Nintendo DS system. This was a game I have been dying to play for the double screened gaming system for a very long time. I finally had my chance to do just that. In the very large and cool-as-hell Nintendo booth, I played against 3 other players in Mario Kart DS. One player was on a TV screen in front of us playing from Nintendo HQ. That person was none other then the voice of Mario himself, Charles Martinet. I started out in 1st place for the first lap, but someone ended up owning my parse with a shell and I ended up in 3rd. Either way, Mario Kart DS was a great experience not only in what this system can do in terms of power and looks. But also the fact that we were all playing on Nintendo’s WIFI Internet connection.

Image source rocket league boosting

Everything ran smooth, and it felt like everybody was in the same room playing. If this is what is to come from Nintendo’s WIFI service, I truly cannot wait!

The track we played on was a basic Mario Kart track. It was basically a full circle track with no bells and whistles like most of the other tracks have in Mario Kart games. The finished product will have about 30 tracks with some from the past few Mario Kart games for the SNES, N64 and GameCube. Everything ran at a smooth 60 fps and it felt like I was playing the GameCube version in the palm of my hands. The graphics are some of the best I have seen on the DS. Bright and colorful character designs as well as the tracks. Everything just looked awesome. And I just sat there in awe of the game, not realizing what I was playing until I sat in my bed in the hotel that night. I thought to myself :Damn, I just played Mario Kart DS! Let’s just put it this way, it earned my vote for Portable Game of the Show.

The tracks still have those special rainbow boxes that you can run into and collect various power-ups and special items.

I kept getting those special speed mushrooms that will give your kart a nice speed boost. But even those were not enough to save me from the humiliation of going from Hero to Zero. The sounds and music are pure Mario Kart. Very poppy Mario-esque music along with the many great voice samples from all of the cool Nintendo characters. I also found that the feel of the DS during the game was also very comfortable. Everything felt just… good! Controls are your basic Mario Kart greatness. Everything just seemed too perfect, but it does help when you are playing against the man who has voiced Mario, Luigi and Wario. I was buttered up, and I was loving every minute of it! Charles Martinet would break out in voices during the race, making everybody laugh and lose concentration. Thats fine though, I’d rather have come in 3rd and played against a legend then come in first and not play against him at all.

So my thoughts on Mario Kart DS? Lets put it this way my Nintendo loving friends (and Nintendo enemies, I know you are out there! Curse you all!) Mario Kart will be worth the wait. You will be able to see greatness in the next coming months when Nintendo releases this title to the masses that slowly and eagerly await it. I was impressed with the few minutes I had with it, and I even look down on my desk at the Mario Kart DS stylus that I got for playing it. How I miss you Mario Kart DS. But fear not… I will be playing you before too long on my Nintendo DS. Yes my friends.. it will be worth the wait.

Play a Great Range of Slots on Your Smartphone at NextGen Mobile Casinos

To any of our readers, NextGen might feel like one of the smaller casino software developers in the world and we couldn’t really disagree with that, although they do have an established track record of success behind them, having been formed in the late 90s. While they’re one of the older players in the industry, one of the main reasons for them still being considered as something of a smaller developer revolves around their selection of games. Indeed, even if they had released a new game every year that they have been in business, their selection would be larger than it is now.

Another slight issue for many players is that the company only deals in slots. We are firm believers that any casino that is worth playing at, mobile or otherwise, needs to tick certain boxes when it comes to games. An eclectic mix of slots, table games and video poker are the bare minimum for any operator and the latter two are missing from the NextGen portfolio. They have their own game delivery platform, Nix Interactive, but it simply is not the kind of thing that many casinos would take a risk on alone as players expect more than just slots.

It is for this reason that many casinos opt to carry NextGen’s games alongside a more established developer and why the company is likely to remain one of the small fish in the industry. Nevertheless, it has managed to make the best of the situation with various other platforms carrying the NextGen range as standard, not least the well-known Quickfire platform.

NextGen Mobile Games vs 토토사이트

While NextGen’s scope may be somewhat limited, they have taken the increasing popularity of mobile casino gaming as something of an opportunity to reinvent themselves. Having released only a dozen online slots in as many years, the availability of a whole new industry has seen barely a week go by without a new mobile slot release from the company. Like Microgaming, which is at completely the other end of the spectrum when it comes to size, NextGen has built its own development and delivery platform around HTML5. What this effectively means is that any newly designed and developed game is instantly suitable for desktops, mobile and tablets as soon as it hits the virtual casino floors.

While the company has not shifted away from its vision as a slots only provider and this will continue to mean that it will never be the sole provider behind any mobile casino, the fact that they have reinvented themselves almost puts them in the category of a mobile only developer. Whereas their online slots were showing their age and kind of plugged on with reckless abandon, their mobile slots all feel new, fresh and of excellent quality. Not all of their games are graphical masterpieces by any stretch, but the likes of Genie Wild and Medusa indicate a certain level of proficiency and commitment to the mobile gaming market that is always a pleasure to see. It is also no coincidence that NextGen has been picking up industry awards for the first time in recent months, which indicates just how far they have come as a developer.

Where to Play NextGen Mobile Games

As noted, NextGen never looked likely to be the kind of casino developer that was going to single-handedly power a mobile casino. Fortunately, a common trend in the industry at the moment is to pull together as many different developers as possible for a wide and varied selection of games. After all, different players have different ideas of what makes a good game, not to mention their own personal favourites and if a mobile casino wants to sign up such a player as a member then it is up to them to ensure that such a game is available on their platform.

Two of the biggest names in mobile casino gaming that operate as such games aggregators are Vera&John Mobile Casino and Leo Vegas. At each of these operators you can enjoy literally dozens of games on your smartphone or tablet, although the most important thing in our coverage of NextGen is of course that all of the company’s slots are also available as part of that range. With the likes of Microgaming taking care of table games and video poker, NextGen has a thoroughly suitable route to market where they can focus on what they do best. You can find out all about Vera&John Mobile and Leo Vegas, two of our most highly recommended operators, in the mobile casino review section here on the site.

Internet Texas Holdem, are you in?

Internet texas holdem poker is one of the better pastimes I have come across in a long time. I never played poker in the card rooms and only recently did a colleague of mine introduce me to playing poker online. I guess it makes sense; the web is used for many of my daily tasks including work, banking, and current events. I might as well add entertainment to that list since I now play internet texas Holdem games on poker ace 99.

People tell me that the online experience is much different that playing poker at a live table.

I don’t know the difference since I’ve only ever played internet texas holdem and a few other online poker games. Internet texas holdem has a steady pace and is very easy to learn. Before I played internet texas holdem for money I practiced at the free-play section of the poker room I frequent. Playing with demo money I picked up some valuable tips and experience, including some bluffing and player-reading techniques. Internet texas holdem has its fair share of bluffers and I would recommend learning some of the online reads before getting into real money action. Players are more apt to bluff I think because they face less risk of embarrassment. I am certainly no stranger to the internet texas holdem bluff.

After playing internet texas holdem for several months I can easily see why this game is so popular.

Poker in general is a unique blend of skill, luck, and perhaps what is best described as common sense. Patience is definitely a poker virtue and although important, it is less relevant when playing internet texas holdem because of the quick pace. Poker gurus will tell you that internet texas holdem is not better nor will it ever replace the live game, and they may be right. Internet texas holdem is a great game for those new to the game especially those of us most comfortable and accustomed to the online environment. The internet is always improving and always multi dimensional and changes will inevitably be seen in internet texas holdem.

 

My verdict

I personally look forward to experiencing what happens when technology meets tradition and internet texas holdem evolves even further. Until the next innovation I will continue enjoying a great game.

How To Gain From Networking: The Spirit Of Generosity

A simple, but effective, training tool for learning to network is learning to be generous. Think of most networking functions. Most people are too petrified to do more than stand around. Some stand alone. Others huddle in groups with friends they brought along or with people they barely know. Mixed in with the frightened masses are a few outgoing people who step up to a new group, or new person, and ask what they do.

Most of us are grateful to be talking to anyone, but there is a mercenary quality to the question;

  • “So what do you do?”
  • Seminar presenters and book-writers pull down big books teaching you how to answer the question, “So what do you do?”, but how many people hear the unspoken words that follow it?
  • So what do you do, and how can I profit from it?
  • So what do you do, so I can determine whether I need to move on to someone else?
  • So what do you do, and answer quickly so I can tell you what I do.

There’s nothing wrong with asking someone what they do, but the intention behind the question is seldom curiousity. It’s a transaction of information – and it’s why we hate networking. So I want you, both as a candidate, and as a salesperson (and we’re all salespeople), to think of networking in a new light. Networking opportunities, whether they be user groups, career fairs, industry conferences, or standing in line at the local grocery store should be boiled down to one goal – Get the other person to view you as a generous individual.

We love generous people, if you are one of them you can click here to find others. From big-hearted philanthropists to gift-bestowing grannies to Santa Claus, the idea of someone giving without requiring something in return is an indicator of a good soul, a kind spirit, and in most cases, a very effective icebreaker. The way to do so is simple to say;

“My name is Jim Durbin, and I’d like to know what I can help you with.”

Now, you should use your own name, but this little sentence will change the way you view networking events. When you approach someone, think of your goal as finding a way to help them. Give them advice, a number, a name, a website. Introduce them to someone else you met. Offer to get them a drink. Do anything that will make their lives easier and help them fulfill their goals. It doesn’t have to be earth-shattering, but it does have to be sincere. The benefit of sincerely wanting to help people is that you gain, both in personality and stature, when you adopt a giving attitude. And in most cases, the cost of giving is small, and the impact, much bigger.

You can’t go through life giving and not have it affect you.

This is the best part of the exercise. The intangible benefits of helping other people gain you the advantages that you hoped to procure by networking in the first place, but not in a tit-for-tat manner. You’re building a network of good will that helps them. Just as profit is created from raw materials through the exchange of goods, benefit is generated in excess of the cost through successful networking, which means everyone who chooses to participate, wins. This manner of thinking is counterintuitive, but correct. And for those who are scratching their heads, the idea of generousity does not apply to your entire life.

Giving away all you earn or your services or time for free is a quick route to the poorhouse.

The principle of giving in networking only applies to small cost, large impact decisions. So be generous. Learn to help others. Pass around names. Take the time to give numbers. Actually call your contacts and tell them to talk to the person you offered to help. Send the email from your phone while standing there. Take the focus off your needs and put it on others, and you’ll find that networking boosts your energy and productivity, instead of being another chore you slog through.

Bottom line

To a stingy man, the world is a window to be closed, keeping what is yours and preventing others from taking it. To a generous man, the world beckons like an open doorway, promising riches, excitement, and pleasure the rest of his day. Networking isn’t just about finding leads, or job prospects, or people who can help you. It’s about improving your social skills, gaining critical knowledge, and branding yourself as a go-to candidate. Take the focus off yourself, and you will find that people respond to good will.

How to Get Rid of Red Skin

Many of us know what it is like to get a sunburn. Especially the kind that leave us really red when we have somewhere special to go or something to do and we were actually looking for a tan. Or perhaps you have rosy cheeks all of the time or just can’t explain why you always look red. Rest assure there are ways to reduce or get rid of red skin altogether. [sniplet AdSense Skyscraper] The first choice for many is aloe Vera. Aloe Vera is made specifically to aid in red or sunburned skin. It has a great cooling effect and many people even like the way it smells. It is best applied after a warm shower. Don’t over use it all at one time because you want it to actually soak into your skin for it’s full effect. Apply it as often as needed or at least 5 times a day to help reduce redness. The aloe Vera naturally speeds up the process for treating red skin.

Another great way that may sound just a little strange but also logical is to drip eye drops that are specifically for red eyes onto the red areas you want to eliminate. It actually does work a lot of times. Many people use it to reduce the redness around a pimple. It has great benefits that actually fight the red color helping it to not look so red.

St. Ives apricot scrub is also a great way to reduce redness. It peels away at the dead skin that covers your body helping to reduce the redness. It actually takes off layers of dead skin that is keeping your body looking red to make it look healthy and glowing. It is a great product and very reasonably priced and can be bought at many stores such as Walgreen’s or Walmart.

Whether you stayed out in the sun to long or have just been looking very red and flush lately there a many treatments to help you. If it is not a sunburn and you don’t have a skin condition such as rosacea maybe you should consider switching whatever lotions, detergent, shampoo, conditioner, soap, perfume, make up and anything else that you use that could have things that irritate your skin. Always be sure and use sun block because if your red skin is in fact a sunburn it is actually sun damage and can have harmful effects to your skin over a period of time.

Night Photography | How To Photograph Car Light Trails

Night photography can be challenging, but inevitably gratifying when you manage to capture those “home run” photos. One of our favorites are photographing car light trails at night. If you plan it right you can capture a really engaging night photo as a result.

Let’s begin.

As you can guess, it is necessary to accomplish this type of night photography . A good SLR (Single Lens Reflex) Camera and some creativity will allow for even the novice to produce professional looking pictures. It is best that you are familiarize yourself with the camera’s exposure capabilities as well as shutter speed manipulation. Pick out a great place to shoot, which will allow you to involve as many trails as possible. Ideal locations should be somewhere with a high volume of traffic, and can provide an elevated viewpoint such as a hill, a bridge, or building, enabling you the perfect overlook at the cars in the night.

When choosing shooting angles remember that cars coming in your direction will provide yellow light trails, while those facing away will provide red, so keep that in mind when you decide what kind of effect you want with the colors.

Now focus on your exposure. A longer exposure will give you more trails, and extend their length, but if your exposure time is too long you will see the brightness of each trail beginning to fade, something you may want to avoid.

Use you viewfinder to find out how long a car needs to pass your scene, then add a couple of seconds on your exposure time. It is best to experiment with different shutter speeds to achieve your desired trail length.

Use a tripod if you want the trails to be straight, if you want some motion in the picture try holding your camera. Try different positions, zoom in and out, spin the camera.

Just be creative enjoy night photography and have fun with it. Good luck!

Add Transition Effects between Movie Clips in Windows Movie Maker

Windows Movie Maker is well known Video Editing application for home users implemented in Microsoft Windows. With him, every home user can capture, edit and export his home movies to another home video camera, digital video recording device or just on DVD discs.

Non-professional home videos are specific with short movie clips scenes, because the recording of live scenes are spontaneous and without any preparation like lights, decors, etc. For this we just hurry press Record button on the camera and press it again when the action scene is finished. For this on one video storage (video tape, miniDVD, memory card) very frequently have written many video files with short duration. To get more smooth performance when playback it is good to insert some transition effects on the clips to get some blending feel on the audience when the video scenes are changing.

With this tutorial I will show you how to add transition effects between movie clips in Windows Movie Maker.

First Import your video clips into Collections like shown on the picture below:

Next put the video clips on Storyboard panel. Here you can arrange the video clips depending on the place where recorded, by chronological order or just to be suitable for adding the transition effects.

When ready open Video Transition and select the transition. To preview the transition click on it and next play in the preview player. When you choose suitable transition, select it and next drag and drop to Storyboard panel. Transition have to be placed in small container between the movie clips which you want to be blended with this transition like shown in the picture below:

When ready go to File / Save Movie file … and wait until the file is saved. Now lets see the result: Get the Flash Player to see this content.

Stop Smoking

What happens when you try to quit the smoking habit on your own? Are you quickly pushed back into smoking by stress, nagging thoughts, or overwhelming cravings?

What is happening is that your own subconscious mind is fighting your conscious efforts because it believes that smoking is good for you. After all, wasn’t it really great to smoke when you were young? All your friends were doing it and it drove your parents crazy!

Since you began smoking every time you lifted a cigarette to your lips it has triggered those same feelings of confidence and security associated with smoking when you first started. The sheer repetition of the habit continually reinforces in the subconscious mind that all you need to do to receive those good feelings is to smoke a cigarette.

Hypnosis can teach your subconscious what you already understand consciously: that cigarettes are not good for you and you no longer want them in your life! With hypnosis we can remove the effects that come from years of constant smoking. We can give your inner mind a new source for those good feelings, a healthy source that adds to life instead of taking from it. The subconscious accepts those suggestions easily. When this is properly done you no longer feel a need for something outside yourself to feel good. And you also don’t replace the smoking habit with a habit of overeating. There is no battle going on inside of you. You simply don’t think about cigarettes. You are a nonsmoker.

Understand that hypnosis will only work when you have the proper motivation. You must truly want to quit smoking for yourself. When you have reached a point when you can say “I hate these things and I want them out of my life!” is when you are ready to make your hypnosis a success. Say it out loud and see for yourself. Look at a cigarette and say these words: “I hate you and I don’t want you in my life anymore.” If you can’t say those words with feeling, then save your time and money. If you can say those words and mean them, then hypnosis will work beautifully for you.
