In today’s world we inevitably have to spend some time in front of the computer  typing. Did you know that if you don’t exercise correct posture, your chances of being diagnosed with Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) which is a potentially disabling illness often times caused by moving your hands in the same way repetitively, such as those involved in computer use, is increased? While you spend your time to learn to type, you must be aware of the following symptoms which may include intermittent shooting pains in the hands, wrists, forearms, and back. Correct typing position is a key factor in being able to avoid the development of RSI or other pain related diseases. Very few of us type for less than 2-3 hours a week, but the majority of us who sit for prolonged hours in front of the computer should keep the below tips in mind.

 

To keep it simple, generally you are told to keep your head, back and shoulders straight. The upper arm should be straight and lower arm at 90 degree straight on the table. Your wrists should be at same level as the keys on your keyboard such that the arm muscle share the typing pressure, not only your fingers. Keep your legs straight down on the floor. The keyboard should not be hit hard and the mouse should not be gripped too tightly. Keep ample space on and under the working table. The computer monitor should be at eye level at appropriate distance from you.

 

In the ideal typing posture both the static and the dynamic muscle loads are minimized. This posture is achieved when the keyboard is below seated elbow height and the keyboard base is gently sloped away from the user so that the key tops are accessible to the hands in a neutral posture. You can relax your shoulders, arms, and neck, especially during brief rest pauses. Also, in this slightly reclined sitting position the low back rests against the lumbar support of the chair, promoting proper circulation to your hands and lower arms, the abdominal angle, and the popliteal angle (behind the knees) are opened to promote blood circulation. The feet rest firmly upon the floor.

 

Another very important aspect is taking fairly regular breaks from your typing. It is advised to take a 5 minute break after every 30 minutes of continuous activity. Make a schedule and fix an alarm if you are already suffering from RSI to alleviate symptoms. Also don’t forget to try to fit in some exercise everyday, as well as sit up straight. Be especially mindful of your weight. Having a non-sliding, five point base chair can also help your posture. Fully adjustable with height adjustments, tilts, backrest, and arm rest is ideal. If you fear you have syndromes of RSI, visit a doctor. Do not let the pain increase so much as to disturb your sleep or force you to take a break.

When trying to rank for certain keywords, we know that duplicate content on our website can cause problems. It is because search engines are always striving to offer their searches new, relevant information that this usually occurs. At the end of the day you have to think that why should search engine really care about something that has already been crawled by its spiders? As well as this, an individual searcher would find no benefit in having lots of content the same displayed to him? None is the only answer you can give to that.

But how do you find out if something is duplicate or not? After all, you want to stay onside with the major search engines and now that you know duplicate content issues are frowned upon you don’t really want to be caught out. here’s how to do this in Google.

Firstly, search for your site using its URL in Google. This will basically show you all the pages that have been indexed by Google thus far from your site. Then proceed by clicking on each one of the links that comes up in this search. If a message comes up along the lines of “to see the most relevant results we have omitted entries that are similar”, it means that Google deems some of the content on these omitted pages as duplicates.

What you can do then is click on the link that asks you if you would like to carry out the search again but this time with the omitted pages included. You will then see these omitted pages and will be able to fix them in whatever way you see fit in order to rectify things.

Granted, it is difficult to have a purely duplicate free website, but if you avoid things like reproducing articles from article directories or content you have deemed to be relevant from other websites, you should be OK.

Remain on-board your “Mother Ship.” Most affiliate marketing programs develop over time. The program owners are always, or should at least, be creating new marketing tools for their affiliate army. Read the rest of this entry

Two Hearts, Two Minds,
Two Spirits…

Two passionate simple girls running parallel lives with just a little distance in between. We are best friends and cousins, we have been as close as Sisters since as far back as 20 years. As the years kept creeping by, we never failed to stay in touch and frequently visit each other. What we have to offer each other is so special, so unique and so coincidentally similar that the draw to figure out how we can work together has always been topic of discussion.

Depending where we lived, visiting each other was always a treat, whether we were traveling across the united states or making a 3 hour drive up the freeway to spend a weekend together, we found that our interests in so many ways were exactly the same. We love design, shopping, fashion, scrap-booking, eating healthy, yoga, spas, reading, personal development, community support, giving back, non-profit, spirituality, networking and marketing, just to name more than a few of our favorites.

We have worked in similar capacities in and out of Corporate America for years, ironically we both worked in the network marketing industry, pursuing different business opportunities. This was a great way of venturing out and building a community base of friends who share the same interest in creating supplemental, residual income. Building relationships is an investment that clearly brings quality people into our lives and makes us better people. Networking has led us to where we are today and we are grateful for the many relationships we have created over the years.

Entrepreneurs are created not born. Now is the time to start something big, because 1.5 billion people using the Internet daily are searching for a gold mine. So then, why not partner up and charge the new year stronger, faster, simpler? …we did two years ago, life was unpredictable in the Real Estate world, so we used what we had, our strengths and our weaknesses and put it all together, and now, after nearly 2 years of education and training, we are on the fast track heading into 2010 with a bullet proof business concept so big, many won’t believe it or know how to wrap their minds around it.

When the Real Estate Market crashed, my partner and I were no stranger to job loss, so without hesitation we created positions of power, myself being blessed with the gifts to network and sell, my partner, blessed with the gift to create using her programming skills and the understanding behind source code. At best we are a match made in heaven, two very opposite but powerful strengths that have blended us into business together and have carved our pathway to successes beyond our wildest dreams.

Entrepreneurs are Created, Not Born. I believe every person out there has a bit of a creative side, a bit of the Entrepreneur inside themselves. The difference between those that act on their ideas and those that don’t are the opportunities that can be created from those ideas; in fact, many hero’s of our lifetime are household names, all because they acted on their idea to make change in their life as much as others. If you are wondering about that idea that keeps surfacing, then look inside and rely on yourself and nobody else and go ahead and spark the Entrepreneur within and make a difference in your new year ahead. 2010 is going to be BIG MONEY for those that separate themselves from the masses and take action. Where do you want to be?
