Starting a small business requires a financial investment. This is true no matter if you are starting a small construction business, a cleaning business, or opening a small café. You are going to have to invest money in your business in order to purchase equipment, products to sell, and to get the licensing and insurance you need for your business. However, if you find creative ways to save money, you will not find yourself in a lot of debt throughout the course of starting your business.
Some business owners try to do everything on their own. They only think about the money that they are handing over to a professional when they are paying for a service to get their business going instead of thinking about the true long-term cost of the item. For example, some business owners will try to design their own website or make their own business cards even though they do not really have a lot of experience in these areas. Just think of all the time it will take them to figure out how to do this when they can be focusing on more important aspects of their business. Hiring a professional to do certain jobs when starting your business is really cost-effective over the long term.
Another way that business owners try to save money is by purchasing the least amount of items that they may need for their business. For example, just think of individuals who have a janitorial or cleaning business. They may only purchase cleaners that are needed for a house or office that they are working on that week. However, when you compare the price of bulk cleaning supplies with individual cleaning supplies, you can see that it is a lot less expensive to purchase in bulk. If you use Advanage cleaner in your business, when you compare the amount you will have to pay for one small bottle with how much you will get if you purchase in bulk, you will see that you will save a lot of money over the long run. When you invest in supplies, you save money, and you will not have to go through the trouble of ordering or purchasing supplies often.
Depending on the type of business you have, it may be advantageous for you to rent certain types of equipment until you are in a better position to purchase the equipment. For example, some construction business owners use a generator every now and then when they work at isolated construction sites. If they only use a generator occasionally, it may be a good idea to just rent a generator on those days. After the business is established, they will be able to afford one.
In less than 2 months I have to say goodbye in one of my blogs. It is not easy to let go my health blog but I need to. I’m doing blogging for a long time already and this is my source of income. So, it is important that all my blogs are earning enough. My health blog is not doing well for a long time. It doesn’t give enough earnings so I need to say goodbye to this one. I don’t think it is worth to continue my health blog because as I said it doesn’t give enough earnings and we know that in order to run blog, you need to pay domain and hosting. Where will I get money to pay these? I think better to stop; anyway, I still have 4 blogs currently running.
In the coming days, I will get some of the contents of my health blog and put it here or in my other blogs. I just realized it is hard to let go blog especially if you’re managing it for years already. This is the second time I will do this. The first one wasn’t hard to let go because the blog wasn’t old. Just managed it for a year and decided to let go because I didn’t receive any earnings from that blog. My health blog was long time ago and received earnings way back but not for a year. Anyway, I hope this is the last time I will say goodbye to my blogs. So, please advertisers wherever you are, I am here to work for you, hahah!
When many people think of high temperature insulators, heavy brick, hard and thick ceramic tile and asbestos materials often come to mind. But many industrial equipment applications cannot withstand the weight of heavier insulators. In other cases equipment may need a flexible insulator that contours to the shape of the machinery used. When engineers need a lightweight, flexible material to protect from excessive temperatures, they look to ceramic fiber paper, or CF paper.
Ceramic fiber is a mixture of aluminum and silicon. Through a special fiber washing process, the materials are liquefied and blended together. In the washing process impurities are removed. It is then heated and formed into large, thin sheets. The dried product is then spun into large rolls between 24 and 48 inches in width, much like roofing paper. For higher temperature resistance, zircon is used in place of alumina.
Despite thicknesses as thin as 1/32 of an inch, CF paper can insulate against temperatures as high as 2300 degrees F. and continuous temperatures as high as 2000 degrees. Average thickness ranges from 1/32 of an inch to ¼ of an inch. Ziconia based CF paper has even higher thermal resistance properties and is able to protect against temps as high as 2600 degrees.
Because impurities are removed CF paper retains both uniform thickness and chemical composition. The latter characteristic is critical, because at extreme temperatures, even small weaknesses over the surface area of the insulation can create a disaster. Additionally, CF paper normally shows excellent corrosion resistance.
The applications of are virtually limitless. CF paper can be bonded to many flat surfaces such as kiln decks and oven doors. It can also be used as a lining for receptacles in extreme temperature settings. It can also be used to wrap metal tubing or piping. Electronic wiring and conduit can be wrapped when needed and unevenly contoured electrical components can be covered with CF paper sheeting.
It is often used as a fire protection material or a spark protection barrier when combustible materials are close by. Finally, CF paper can be cut and shaped into gaskets and seals. The shaped CF gasket can then be used as a thermal barrier between metal components or metal and glass components. When weight constrictions are present or where non uniform equipment requires thermal protection, CF paper is becoming the popular choice.
Beware of WILD diseases during rainy season. WILD stands for Waterborne diseases, Influenza, Leptospirosis, and Dengue.
Waterborne diseases are common during rainy season especially when children drink contaminated water. If it happens children may suffer from diarrhea or cholera. Parents should look for signs of dehydration like little urinary, parched, and haggard eyes.
Influenza – more commonly known as the flu. This is characterized by colds, cough and fever . Child who has flu is advised to stay at home and not to go to school. Influenza is usually heals within 5-7 days. Paracetamol should be given to the patient and not antibiotic. However if the child has a hard time breathing or taking more than 40 breaths per min, it could be pneumonia, if this is the case the child should immediately be brought in the hospital
Leptospirosis – bacterial infections from infected urine of rat. Even after the flood, it is not safe to play in the mud because the disease is transmitted here.
Dengue – Public urged to destroy breeding places of mosquitoes to avoid this deadly disease. To avoid mosquito bites especially the children be sure to wear long sleeves and long pants.
Whether you spend most of your waking hours picking up after five children or closing sales, performing menial chores is probably the last thing you want to do. Other people might look at you askance upon discovering that you employ any of the tips listed below, but you’ll be the one relaxing with a magazine at the nail salon each week while they’re stuck doing laundry for two hours.
1. Use disposable dishes and cutlery
This isn’t the most environmentally sound idea, but when your seven-year-old is having ten friends over for a sleepover that involves ice cream sundaes and macaroni surprise, you’ll probably do anything to avoid the inevitable clean-up. Just make sure to only break out the paper plates when you have guests over, or you’ll find that the amount of waste you produce in a given week may increase exponentially.
2. Buy a lot of clothes
Personally, I find that I run out of clean underwear and bras before I find myself low on shirts or jeans. If you wear a particular item of clothing frequently, having plenty of them on hand can drastically prolong the amount of time you can go between visits to the laundromat. For items such as block-color t-shirts or bras, buying them wholesale is a cost-effective option. Uni Hosiery offers a number of wholesale underwear and active wear options, including these delightfully comfortable mamia bras.
3. Prepare extra ingredients while cooking
If you find yourself using certain items in most of the dishes you cook, make extra so you’ll have some already on hand next time you’re putting together a meal. For me, frequently used items include vegetables such as tomatoes, mushrooms, and onion. Rice and potatoes are carbohydrate staples used in many dishes appropriate for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Just be sure to place a piece of masking tape on the container with the date of preparation so you can easily avoid eating anything that might be spoiled.
With the right amount of planning and foresight, you can drastically increase the amount of free time you have available. Now the trick is to figure out what to do with all those extra minutes in your day!
It is rainy season once again. One of the illnesses that we are afraid of during rainy season is the deadly dengue, this is cause by the bite of mosquito called Aedes Aegypti. Say no to mosquitoes. One way to prevent the harmful bite of mosquito is by using insect repellent. We all know insect repellent is not cheap so it’s best to find other alternatives or make our own insect repellent.
I saw this on TV; do it yourself insect repellent, I find it easy and cheap to make so I will surely make any of these insect repellent.
1) Lemon Citrus Insect Repellent
Citrus fruits like lemon contains lemonine which mosquito and other insects doesn’t like the smell. It is easy to make the solution, all you have to do is boil water and put slices of lemon when the water is already boiling, wait until the extract comes out. After this let it cool, filter and transfer in a spray bottle. You can use 1 lemon only. It is advice to apply the solution every hour because this is a mild lemon base insect repellent.
2) Essential Oil insect repellent – we can make this kind of repellent using different kinds of oil such as essential oil, castor oil and alcohol. Essential oil gets from natural sources like flower, seed of plants, and fruits. Alcohol is also needed because this serves as the carrier of essential oil that will make the solution absorbs in the skin. Aside from alcohol olive oil and cooking oil can be used as carrier.
How to make Essential Oil insect repellent?
1 Tbsp alcohol, mix with 1 tbsp oil, 10 drops of castor oil and 10-15 drops of essential oil of your choice. They said the most effective is citronella and eucalyptus oil. Mix all together and put in spray bottle.
3) Lemongrass Insect repellent
Citronella is known as natural shield in mosquito but it is more effective if mix with lemongrass. Citronella is also from lemongrass family so it’s ok to combine.
If the mosquitoes smell citronella, eucalyptus, lemon oil and lemongrass they are destructed and tend to go other direction.
To do the solution, slice lemongrass and mix in small pieces of citronella, put in blender. If it’s already refined, transfer in a bowl and put 1 tbsp oil. Boil in a saucepan to get the extract. Let it cool, strain and put in spray bottle.
Voila, three easy do it yourself Insect Repellent. All these are environment friendly, effective, and very cheap to make.
Every year, on the last Friday in April, we celebrate the majesty and importance of trees to our community and our planet with Arbor Day. There are many ways you can celebrate this important holiday, including throwing an Arbor Day party, volunteering for a planting event, or spreading the news at a charity function. While it’s important to make a practical difference and help the environment, you can also do it in style. Here are some tips to making your next arbor day both useful and enjoyable. The earth will thank you for it!
First, look for planting events in your area and attend those events with your trusty shovel. You can easily help transplant saplings to a protected area with little to no tree-planting experience. It really is as easy as digging a big hole, placing the root ball in the hole, refilling the hole, and adding some water. Mulch will keep down on weeding, but someone should plan to water the new tree regularly until it is established. Unless you can find room to plant a tree on your own property, work with a charity group to find your planting opportunity.
Next, consider campaigning for trees at a charity event or political occasion. Lobbying for more natural areas and parks or agitating for more green space in urban areas are all good ways to celebrate the value of trees. Again, nonprofit organizations are the best way for you to find out how to help. Let your voice be heard in your community by speaking out on the importance of trees.
Finally, consider throwing a party to celebrate Arbor Day, either to raise awareness or to raise money for a tree-related cause. Get an ecologically-minded band to play, or hold contests with appropriate prizes like the willow tree figures by Coppin’s. You can even get a tree-themed mascot or entertainer to keep your guests amused. You’d be surprised how much money and attention you can raise with an exciting event. Tell the world about the importance of trees on the holiday dedicated to their importance.
The world needs its trees, especially with the current environmental crisis that is looming. Trees clean our air, prevent erosion, and feed us. Arbor day is the perfect opportunity to spread the word about how trees make the earth habitable. You too can make a real difference for trees.
