$1200 Investment – What is a Quality Investment?

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

If you have $1200 and you decided the best thing to do would be to invest it for hopefully a little brighter future, what would you do with it? There are many things you can do with it but what would give you the best chance of a return?

$1200 is not a heck of a lot of money in the stock market and as for real estate, the escrow lawyer would gobble that up in an afternoon. But investing it would still be a better idea than blowing it on a good night out. So what can you do?

The attributes of a quality investment are simple. You want a high return with as little capital risk as possible. That’s it. If you can find an investment with such properties you would be doing well. A high return would be defined as anything above 14% for the whole year, because that is the historical average of real estate. So if you can beat 14% with just $1200 dollars seed capital, you not only beat an investment that typically requires at least $10,000 to $20,000 in deposit and entry fee’s but you did it with a humble $1200.

The other criteria is low risk and that can be eliminated in the same way real estate eliminates risk. When you buy property as an investment, you actually receive a tangible and insurable asset in exchange for the money you hand over. This asset has a ready market and can be liquidated back into cash without too much effort. To replicate this at the $1200 level you could just as easily purchase a bottle of vintage wine as an investment, Or maybe a cheap car that you can clean up and resell for a return.

Using a Mixer Insert Jack as a Direct Out

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

When connecting a mixer to a digital audio interface or multi-track recorder, you normally connect the Direct Out jack of each mixer channel to a track’s input on the interface. For example, let’s say your kick drum mic is connected to channel 1 of the mixer. If you wanted to record the kick drum to track 1, you would connect the channel 1 Direct Out to the track 1 input of the interface. You would then connect the channel 2 Direct Out to the track 2 input of the interface, etc. Using the Direct Outs in such a way takes each channel’s signal post-fader and post-EQ and sends it straight to the recording device. This allows you to record that one instrument (and only that instrument) to its corresponding track on the recorder or in your DAW software.

But what if your mixer doesn’t come equipped with Direct Outs? Many lower-priced mixers, or mixers designed more for stage use, do not. It’s also common on many 16-channel mixers to only have Direct Outs on the first 8 channels. If your mixer doesn’t have Direct Outs (or doesn’t have enough of them), you could always use the Main L/R Outputs of the mixer, but there are only two of them. But the problem with this is that ALL of the channels in use will get mixed together and sent to those outputs, which is generally not what you want. If your mixer has Subgroup outs (or „buses“), you could use those, but on a 4-bus mixer, there are only, well–4 of them. So what’s a guy to do if he wants to record each mixer channel to its own track? Fortunately, there’s another alternative–the Insert Jack.

An Insert Jack is a TRS (Tip-Ring-Sleeve or 1/4? stereo) jack that is typically used to connect a signal processor to only affect a single mixer channel. An example would be a compressor or noise gate that might be connected through the Insert Jack of a mixer channel to only affect a single vocal mic. To use the Insert Jack in such a way, you need a „Y“ cable with a stereo TRS plug on one end (connected to the Insert Jack) and two mono TS (Tip-Sleeve or 1/4? mono) plugs on the other end. One of the TS plugs is connected to the input on the signal processor and the other is connected to the output of the same device. So essentially, the Insert Jack creates a signal „loop“ that both sends the signal for the channel out to an external signal processor and then returns it back to the mixer, all through a single jack (the Insert Jack). However, if you’re not using an Insert Jack for its intended purpose (and you often will not), it has a handy second function–as a Direct Out.

There are a few different ways of using an Insert Jack as a Direct Out. First, you can use a standard TS to TS patch cable. Plug the cable all the way in to the Insert Jack. The only drawback here is that the signal is sent to the recorder from the Insert jack, but the signal is „interrupted“ and is no longer sent to the mixer’s main outputs. This may be okay for some recording situations, but in other cases, you will want the signal passed on through to the main outputs as normal, for monitoring purposes or for connection to a power amp and speakers in the case of a live concert.

The next option using a regular TS to TS cable is to only plug the cable in to the „first click“ of the Insert Jack. This will tap the signal and send it straight out to the recorder, while still allowing it to pass on through to the mixer’s main outputs. The only drawback to this is that if you don’t get the cable plugged in just right (to only the first click), you may end up with either no signal to your recorder or no signal to the main outputs (or both).

So a better alternative than the „first click“ or the „all-the-way-in“ method is to use a special cable or adapter that both passes the signal for the channel to the send of the Insert Jack but still passes it on through to the mixer’s outputs as normal. To do this, you can use a Stereo Plug to Mono Jack adapter with a normal mono TS to TS cable. Or you could buy a special Insert Direct Out cable adapter.

However, if you’re like me, you like to keep your connections and cable runs as simple and clean as possible, in which case you don’t like using adapters or plugging cables into cables. So the most elegant alternative is to use a specialized Insert Jack/Direct Out cable for just this purpose. Assuming that you have some very basic soldering skills, this cable is very easy to make, which I will now describe.

Start with a regular mono patch cable with TS plugs on both ends. Remove one of the plugs from the end with some wire cutters or tin snips. Now, solder a stereo TRS plug onto that end of the cable, shorting the Tip and Ring together, and connecting the shield to the Sleeve as normal. This will effectively send the signal to the output of the Insert Jack, while simultaneously returning it to the mixer, which will pass the signal on through to the Main outputs.

insert_as_direct_out.jpg

Some audio snobs might scoff at such a technique, saying that an Insert Jack wasn’t designed to be used this way, and therefore it shouldn’t be. However, some audio purists argue that for recording purposes, this method might actually be superior to using a Direct Out, because the signal path should be the shortest, cleanest, and most uncolored. The reason is that the signal is being sent directly from the preamp to the recorder, without going anywhere else. It’s not passing through the EQ or even the fader, which could, in theory, color or degrade the signal.

Now, of course, like anything else, there are some pros and cons to using this technique. We’ve already covered the pros, so now for the cons. First, when using this technique, the only control that you have over the level of the signal being sent to the recorder is the Trim or Gain knob on your mixer. Because the Insert Jack is pre-fader, the fader becomes useless in terms of the signal being sent to the recorder. However, the fader will still control the level of the channel in the main mix. Second, when using this technique, you are bypassing the EQ, so if you like to use some EQ for preliminary shaping of the recorded track, you’re out of luck. But in most cases, I don’t use any EQ when tracking. I use the parametric EQ built into my DAW software for shaping the sound of my tracks after recording, so this isn’t really a concern for me. Finally, if you’re using the Insert Jack as a Direct Out, you can no longer use it as an Insert. So if you wanted to patch a Compressor into the channel to tame some peaks, you’d have to connect it another way (i.e.: Insert to Compressor to Recorder).

In conclusion, if you need to do some multitrack recording, but don’t have a mixer that’s equipped with Direct Outs (or enough of them), the Insert Jack makes a handy replacement. Or if you’re an audio purist who wants the cleanest and shortest possible signal path between your mic and recorder, the Insert Jack may be the way to go.

How to Really Make Money Watching Commercials

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

You’ve heard about websites that allow you to make money watching commercials. That sounds too easy to be true, does not it? After all, watching commercials is something we’ve done our entire lives and it really does not take any special skills, or does it?

The opportunity to make money watching commercials is a legitimate one. However, it’s important to understand that it’s not quite what you may be thinking it is. The watching commercials part will continue to be relatively easy. The making money part is going to take some work.

How permission marketing works

Permission marketing is a recent trend in advertising that makes all the opportunities where you get paid to be exposed to commercial messages possible. Permission marketing means advertisers have to ask first before they can blast you with their message. In order to get you to say yes, advertisers are willing to pay you some cash.

On a per ad viewed basis, though, the incentive is pretty pathetic. We’re talking a penny or two for a thirty second ad. That does not even add up to $ 2.00 an hour.

So how do you really make money watching commercials?

Another thing about advertisers is they want as many people exposed to their ads as possible. There’s a reason advertisers have paid millions for spots on the Superbowl. They know millions will be watching the game and those same millions will see their ad.

Advertisers are willing to pay you not only for viewing ads, but also for getting others to view the ads. When you invite five friends who each invite five friends down to four levels, you end up with a downline of 625 people. If you invited ten people who each invited ten people down to four levels, you have a downline of 10,000 people. Now we’re talking serious cash. If each person views ten ads, those fractions of pennies per ad start adding up. Essentially, permission marketing has gotten married with network marketing to provide an opportunity for you to make money watching commercials.

How to make the most of the opportunity

The only way the opportunity to make money watching commercials will work well for you is if you recruit others into the opportunity. There are two ways to do this.

The first is to invite all your family and friends. Some people find this easy to do; others find it more difficult and awkward. When inviting people you know, take care to not spam anyone. Do not send out a mass email about the opportunity. Take the time to write a personal email or personally call each of your friends. Be upfront about your reason for writing or calling, briefly explain the opportunity and give them a call to action (check out the opportunity through your affiliate link) and a promise to follow up after they’ve had time to consider it.

If attempting to recruit your friends and family makes you squeamish (that’s always been the icky part of network marketing, has not it?), You can still build your downline through Internet marketing. In many ways, Internet marketing is a better way to do it because rather than having to persuade people to sign up who have never even thought of it, you will be intercepting the people out there who are already looking for such an opportunity. You just have to let them know of the opportunity. You do this by targeting keywords they are likely to search under.

Internet marketing is not difficult to learn, and believe it or not, you can run an entire campaign without having to pay a dime. You need to learn how to do it, then you need to take action on what you’ve learned. Your opportunity to make money watching commercials should be free (if it’s not, it could be a scam, so beware), which will remove one major barrier in convincing the people you encounter to join.

You absolutely can make money watching commercials once you build a solid downline of people doing the same. You can build your downline by recruiting people you know and / or through Internet marketing.

Canadian Olympic Coins, 1976

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

In order to honor and additionally celebrate the Olympic games being held in Canada in 1976, special series went into production starting in 1973. There were seven of them in the Olympic collection and they have now become a good value for the average collector. There were five and ten dollar silver coins with rare one hundred dollar gold prime collectibles that were minted in the year 1976. The ones that are gold are a collection item for casual and series fanatics alike.

The value of the Canadian Olympic silver collection is not more than what they were initially valued at. The five dollar items are typically worth five dollars, and the ten dollar valued at ten dollars. Those that have never been in circulation may go for slightly higher. If someone is really interested in making a profit from them, they may be able to receive twice their value when melted down into silver. Those that are in mint condition and packaged in collectible cases will also fetch a higher price on auction websites and specialized websites.

Gold Canadian Olympic coins are worth at least double their face value on the market. Sites that sell them will usually claim the value if in mint condition and cased at over two hundred dollars. The reason is that they are in fact made of gold which has increased in value. Also, not many of them were made making them harder to find in the collecting community, although not completely uncommon.

People who are interested in them will find that they are not only limited edition but they are also pleasing to the eye. Anyone who has an appreciation for coins will be able to see the careful designs and imagery used to represent Olympic events. Each series of the coin covers a different part of the Olympics including summer sports, team sports, and even souvenirs. These coins are not only a great addition for a coin collector but also for fans of the Olympics and people who want to remember the Olympic events that year.

Breast Enlargement: Reduce the Risk of Rippling

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

Rippling, or wrinkling as it is often referred to by cosmetic surgery professionals, is a fairly common side effect of breast augmentation surgery. Unfortunately, this side effect ruins the appearance of augmented breasts as the skin can appear „wrinkled“ or „rippled“ much like water rippling on a river or pond. These creases of wrinkled skin are actually a result of the implant beneath the skin taking on a rippled appearance. Whichever way one looks at it, the last thing any woman wants is to have her new implants ruined by unsightly ripples.

There are numerous factors that do contribute to the rippling of breast implants, and there are most definitely ways to ensure you reduce the risk of rippling.

Firstly, saline implants are much more likely to ripple than silicone implants. The wrinkling is most likely to occur due to under-filling the saline implant, and although surgeons often lean towards over-filling as a way to avoid this, it is by no means a practice which is supported by manufacturers as this could lead to deflated implants in the longer term.

Thinner women are also more likely to experience rippling as they tend to have less of their own breast tissue to cover the implants. Again, even thin women are much less likely to suffer from wrinkling and rippling if they opt for silicone implants.

In addition to all of this, the placement and texture of the implants can also contribute to the risk/ reduced risk of rippling. For instance, implants placed beneath the muscle run a much lower risk of rippling along the upper and inner side of the breast, than those placed above the muscle. However, this does not mean that they can’t ripple along the outside and under regions as these are not covered by the muscle. In terms of texture, smooth implants run a much lower risk of wrinkling, whilst textured implants may be more likely to ripple.

Lastly there is profile and natural breast tissue to consider. For whatever reason, high profile implants tend to ripple less than low profile implants, although the choice between the different profiles is usually dependent on the size and shape of your body and not always in the control of the patient. Whilst we are speaking of factors out of control of the patient, it is important to speak about natural breast tissue.

When it comes to breast enlargement and rippling, the bottom line is the patient’s natural breast tissue. The less you have in terms of your own breast tissue, the higher the risk of wrinkling. No matter what precautions you end up taking, if you have little or no breast tissue, you will be more likely to develop wrinkles than a person with a fair amount of their own breast tissue.

The good news for women that have already had breast enlargement surgery that has resulted in a rippled or wrinkled outcome is that it is possible to rectify with a corrective surgery and possibly new implants. This is by no means an ideal however it is possible with a credible and reputable cosmetic surgery provider.

Forex Pooled Account

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

Before we get started in our analysis of the pros and cons of „pooling“ money to maximize profits, reduce or eliminate taxes, and of course personal privacy; we have to say yes we do manage a Private Forex Pool for people we consider friends and acquaintances.

Preliminary details of our Private Forex Pool Account are given at the conclusion of this analysis and interested parties may contact us for information.

What is a „pool account?“

Definition: Any fund in which multiple investors contribute assets and hold them as a group. InvestorWords.com, Web Finance, Inc

Pros

  • The advantage of a pooled account is the simplicity of setting up one account over a separate investment account for each individual participant.

Pros

  • Have you ever wondered why the CPI, GDP and employment numbers run counter to your personal and business experiences?The problem lies in biased and often-manipulated government reporting.

„John Williams‘ Shadow Government Statistics“ is an electronic newsletter service that exposes and analyzes flaws in current U.S. government economic data and reporting, as well as in certain private-sector numbers, and provides an assessment of underlying economic and financial conditions, net of financial-market and political hype.

Cons

  • The disadvantage is that the plan sponsor is liable for investment decisions made in the account. In addition, a pooled account will not take into consideration the different investment styles and time horizons of various plan participants. If the plan sponsor invests aggressively, and the plan takes some short-term losses, an older participant nearing retirement could conclude that the plan sponsor did not invest the retirement plan in his or her best interest. The same could be said of a younger employee who would prefer an aggressive investment style, but is stuck in a conservatively invested pooled account.

Cons

  • A forex (or foreign exchange) scam is any trading scheme used to defraud traders by convincing them that they can expect to gain a high profit by trading in the foreign exchange market. Currency trading „has become the fraud du jour“ as of early 2008, according to Michael Dunn of the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission. But „the market has long been plagued by swindlers preying on the gullible,“ according to the New York Times.

  • Time for Change: Why the Corrupt Few Wreak So Much Death, Destruction, and Suffering on the Rest of us

Perhaps the most important question of our time why, throughout human history, have despicable characters repeatedly risen to the pinnacles of power. The 20th Century alone witnessed an estimated 140 million war deaths and another 16 million from genocide. Mass starvation kills millions in an era when there is plenty enough food to feed the world. And not coincidentally, in the world today 40% of the world’s wealth is held in the hands of 1% of its inhabitants, while the bottom 50% owns only 1% of the world’s wealth. That means that the top 1% owns 40 times more than half the world’s population.

There are of course numerous reasons for this sorry state of affairs. But certainly the tremendous wealth and power disparity in the world, along with the abuse of that power by so many who have the most of it explains a great deal. Why have so many despicable characters throughout history acquired the ability to inflict so much suffering on the rest of humanity?

Summary

As you can see for yourself the necessity and outright emergency to take advantage of any investment that provides a legitimate opportunity for self preservation is in one’s best interest.

Basically, the only pitfall to „pooled accounts“, aside from the obvious skill in trading is the honesty and integrity of the fund manager. You must know who you are dealing with and you must know they can be trusted. If in doubt, visit the fund manager for lunch and invest a small sum to get started.

Develop trust, confidence and friendship with the fund manager. Hopefully, the fund manager is a person that shares your vision and their energy (vibes) resonates with your own.

Why Anti-Spyware Software is Important

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

Spyware programs have been designed to affect PCs across the world. A recent review states that almost nine out of every ten computers are affected with spyware. This is because most home users are unsuspecting and also freely use the internet for all purposes. Anti spyware software comes in various packages and formats, you can get them on trail basis and if you like the software than you can buy it without having a second thought. Free spyware removal programs are easily available on the internet for download free of cost.

Spyware can very easily get into your computer without your knowledge. They silently follow you each and every activity on the internet and steal your private data, which may include your e-mails ids, credit card or bank account numbers and passwords. They are capable of doing all the criminal activities on the internet. Some spyware programs make advertisements luring the user to click on it, and once user click on that attractive program, they instantly get in your pc without your knowledge.Though there are free options that will help you to feel more secure (it’s definitely more secure than having nothing), paid options are much better. All in all, you will be happier and more protected with a paid program that offers frequent updates, support and service, and gets the job done more efficiently. Always do your research before buying an anti-spyware software; make sure other customers have great things to say about it.

Getting Spyware on your PC is inevitable. Your PC is prone to spyware attack and can be infected in many ways. It may be just from opening a wrong email or loading a wrong website or downloading music/movies/anything from a wrong source. Whenever you download a program or file or click on a pop-up ad, there is always a danger of downloading spyware and adware into your system. Whatever may be the reason thousands of the PC’s are prone to spyware each and every day.

Paid anti-spyware is much better in the long-run because it should be constantly updated with new algorithms and detection tools. You pay for the service and receive updates periodically that change with the new threats present on the internet. You also get better support services with paid software. If you need help with a technical issue, paid software usually comes with help 24/7 to get you through the issue and back up and running. It has more support because it’s trying to turn a profit; it needs to be the best to have people continue to subscribe. Check out the customer service of the paid software you’re interested in. If it wants to keep it’s members, it will probably have excellent service. In contrast, many free programs come without technical support or service at all.

The severity of the spyware and adware attack is very huge. There are around 80,000 spyware and adware programs on the web and all of them can be a serious threat to your PC. These programs install themselves and slow down the speed of your PC by taking up vast amount of hard disk space and it is impossible to remove them manually without the aid of anti spyware or anti adware software.

Traffic Fines in South Africa a Joke?

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

In South Africa outstanding traffic fines have become a major issue, the police are arresting people in random roadblocks all over the country. The Cops work to make a killing off of motorists and South African drivers by fining citizens as a simple way to create a much needed but dirty flow of cash from the citizens.

Many motorists feel these fines are invalid and should have never been alleged in the 1st place It doesn’t matter your guilt or innocence, the police are required to follow strict policies and guidelines when it comes to fining for traffic violations

Recently in the news media and in the news papers, the abuse of power has been highlighted. Mnet’s Carte‘ Blanche and SABC3 Special Assignment have done cover storeis uncovering the entire racket we are now witnessing. Are your traffic fines valid or, are they just an easy way for the police to buck the system and stick their hands in your pockets?

This is clearly an issue of money.

What makes a Fine Valid?

The police know how easy it is to win in court. Citizens rarely raise a fuss. So, they are quick to make mistakes.. Its an issue of Rands, not enforcing the traffic laws.

The Metro Police typically avoid this argument.

Here are things that MUST be considered when validating a Traffic Fine:

– Checking that the fines don’t have irregularities before sending them.
– Using faulty or un-calibrated speed measuring equipment.
– Tampering with photographic evidence to make you look guilty.
– Not keeping or logging information required for prosecution when issuing fines.

Before paying any outstanding traffic violations, these are just some of the hundreds of issues you must consider.

Don’t pay for fines you don’t deserve. Did you know that irregularities like those listed above would likely cause your case to be thrown out of court? Don’t make the police’s job easy.

It is reported that around 80% -90% of traffic fines issued in South Africa when speed measuring devices are used have some form of irregularities found on them. This is shocking and disturbing and should not be overlooked.

Note that none of the above irregularities listed stop the Metro Police from sending you a notice of infringement AARTO traffic fine.

Unfortunately, the issues we are talking about here are rarely overseen or closely regulated. Once you’ve admitted to a fine, you would not be able to claim a refund if the courts ruled that your traffic fines issued were invalid.

Become a Millionaire Overnight Without Doing Anything?

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

Are you the sort of person who could be attracted by a headline such as the one above? Do you really believe that it is possible to make that kind of money without any effort on your part? Of course you don’t because you are a sensible rational adult who know that in this life you get nothing for nothing.

So if you and I cannot be fooled by these sort of smoke and mirrors claims who are the millions of people who respond to headlines and sales letters with almost as outlandish claims every day? Guess what, it is people just like you and me.

Be honest have you never responded to some advertisement or sales letter that seems just too good to be true. I suspect like me you probably have and within a short time you have realised that what may have appeared a great idea on paper is simply is a load of old rubbish.

So what is it in all our natures that make us want to believe that there is some hidden secret of creating wealth from nothing? I suppose that it is the same reaction as when we buy a lottery ticket and just for a few minutes we imagine what life would be like should we win.

I think possibly it is the optimists that get suckered into these wild schemes because somewhere in the back of their brains they know that the plan almost certainly will not work, BUT.. it just might. Most people use the glass half full half empty image to define optimists and pessimists but I have another analogy. An optimist is some who when buys a lottery ticket EXPECTS to win, a pessimist KNOWS he is not going to win.

Quite frankly there has never been a better time for anyone to build themselves considerable wealth. It is possible to start with practically nothing and in a relatively short time build considerable wealth. A ex work colleagues have mine has a son you was going to go to further education and wanted to get some cash to pay for his time at university. He came up with a simple idea, got some press coverage and made over $1 million in a very short time. He was the guy who got the idea of selling 1 million pixels on his web site for $1 a time; you may have read about him.

The formula for how to become wealthy can be broken down into plan, effort result. You need a plan or idea, add dedication, effort and determination and this will equal wealth. If you take a plan or idea and add nothing that will always equal nothing.

Someone once told me that there is a name for having a goal but taking no action, it is called day dreaming.
