It has been some time that we have needed more space, but it was not all that easy to relocate. We are pretty much forced to do it at this point, because the landlord is not really interested in extending the lease on terms which make sense for us. If the location was better for us, then we might consider what he wants. However as it is inadequate now and has been for some time, we are not paying more. We need to get the more space and something more like the latest phone system and better system of networking, which is a poor way to phrase it. (more…)
When I first started to get used to my e-cigarette, I was pretty sad about putting away all my tobacco related products. Over the years I had grown fond of the social aspect of smoking which had lead me to discover a joy for all things Hookah. I fell in love with Hookah smoking after a friend and I had stopped to eat one of the local Hookah bars where we both tried our very first Hookah. There was something intimate about the shared smoking experience which touched me. Thankfully, you can now buy e-shisha as easily as you can buy an e-cigarette! While it definitely is not anything like the traditional method which involved a sense of ritual, the presence of the Hookah itself is still powerful enough to be a gathering spot for individuals to sit around and enjoy some excellent flavored shisha – even if it is of the electronic variety.
I wish there were a way that humans could adapt to the dangers of smoking – in the graphic novelTransmetropolitian, the society of the future has developed ‘anti-cancer’ pills to allow individuals to freely smoking as much as they desire. Now that is definitely some medical advancements I can get behind! Unfortunately, here in the real world that smoke is as dangerous to ourselves as it is those that are around us. I would feel absolutely terrible if I allowed my habit be the cause of harm for someone else. Knowing that second hand smoke can cause cancer is enough of a reason for me to quit. I absolutely refuse to be that irresponsible. It’s shocking to thinking that there are smokers that are out there whom still do not care one lick about the lives of those around them as they continue to puff away happily.
I own a small business and we have been in operation for about 13 years now, and I have never really put a lot of thought into pension plans and such before, but we not have some members of the company that are getting pretty close to retirement, and it is good time to try to figure out more information. I would like to talk to a ssas specialist to try to learn more about what I should do to set up pension plans for these specific employees.
I am kind of confused already, from what little I have read about the issue of setting up a SSAS and that is why it is pretty important for me to be able to talk to someone who actually knows what they are talking about. (more…)
I want to go back to school, so that I can continue my education, and hopefully land a better job than the one that I have at the moment. There are not a whole lot of jobs in the town where I live, and it is rather depressing. I actually think that this town is dying, and that more people are just going to move away. It is a sad thought, but likely the truth. I am looking for online mba degree programs, because I do not have the time to actually attend classes, and the only way that I am going to be able to get my MBA, is if I try to do it over the Internet.

The big thing we are thinking about right now is to make sure that we keep the new facility fairly safe. It is not like we are talking about a Wells Fargo armored truck depot, but the fact is that people have robbed this sort of place for valuable cargo. Mostly we are concerned about high value cargo and the focus of the cctv systems will be around an inner compound. For example a truckload of cigarettes is obviously worth a very significant amount of money. In the USA there are a lot of places where local taxes push the price of a pack of cigarettes up to around 8 dollars per pack. It is common to see the premium brands selling at 50 dollars per carton ( a carton has ten packs in it) and you could carry a box containing a gross of those quite easily, which is one hundred and forty four cartons.

I found a cash for cars web site that said that they would like to come to my house to offer me a good amount of money for my car. I have a lot of low miles on this car and while I can not drive it right now, I think that the people that are coming to my house to give me cash are going to be giving me a good amount so I could make sure that I am happy. I do not want to bring it to get a lot of different scrap yards to see who will give me the most amount of money for it, because the car is still in good condition. (more…)
The entire packaging and shipping industry is about to go through a wild revolution as technology begins to catch up to human capability. We’ve already seen a taste of what might be in store for us with the revelation that Amazon has been working on unmanned, micro drones to deliver small packages with a trial run having been done in Southern California to great success! Now with automated packaging machinery, you could have entire trucks outfitted with these two technologies. Packaging items directly within the truck itself as it goes through neighborhood to neighborhood, utilizing the drones that are launched from the back of the truck in order to deliver the goods directly to the houses.

From their days playing together as teenagers to their current acoustic and electric blues, probably no one has more consistently led American music for the last fifty years than Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady, the founders and continuing core members of Hot Tuna. The pair began playing together while growing up in the Washington D.C. area. In the mid 1960's, Jorma was asked to audition for a new band that was forming in San Francisco. Though an acoustic player at heart, he grew interested in the band's electronic gear and decided to join. Soon thereafter he summoned Jack, who now played the bass, from Washington D.C. Jack's experience as a lead guitarist led to a style of bass playing that took the instrument far beyond its traditional role. The unique sound of The Jefferson Airplane was created. Jorma contributed the band's name, drawn from a nickname a friend had for the blues-playing Jorma. Along with the other members of The Jefferson Airplane, Jorma and Jack are 1996 inductees in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
The Kaukonen-Casady duo created much of The Jefferson Airplane's signature sound, and Jorma's lead and fingerstyle guitar playing characterizes some of the band's most memorable tracks. Jorma and Jack would jam whenever they could and would sometimes perform sets within sets at Airplane concerts. Jorma left Jefferson Airplane after the band's most productive five years, and in 1969 Hot Tuna became a full-time job. Over the next four decades Hot Tuna would perform thousands of concerts and release more than two dozen records.

The tour will launch on Thursday, February 20th in her current home city of Vancouver, B.C. and wrap on Tuesday, March 25th in Seattle, WA — including a stop on March 23rd at The Fillmore. This marks Wanting’s largest tour of North America to date, following a short run of sold-out dates a year ago in support of debut album Everything In The World.
Wanting is currently making her way around Asia, where Say The Words debuted at #1 in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Macau, Singapore and Malaysia, and shot to #1 on QQ, a Beijing-based music streaming service boasting more than 780 million members. Additionally, album track “When It’s Lonely,” one of three album trucks sung in her native of Mandarin, is featured on the Chinese version of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire movie soundtrack.
With Say The Words, which she co-produced with Ron Aniello, Wanting takes her piano-swept pop melodies to the next level, introducing elements of jazz and hip-hop on such tracks as Latin-groove tinged “Time, My Friend” (featuring Far East Movement), retro-soul “Exit This Way” and empowering rock-pop anthem “STHU.” Rounding out the album are two breakout ballads, “Love Ocean” and “When It’s Lonely,” sung in her native Mandarin, and upbeat “Us Under The Sunshine,” in both Mandarin and English.

Being on your feet for long periods of time can cause sever back pain. If you spend too many hours on your feet, you can strain your back. To avoid back pain, alternate between sitting and standing positions. Your mattress may be a factor in helping you to have less back pain when you wake up. A lot of people spend a lot of time sleeping, if you do not have a good mattress you will have back pain. Make sure your mattress is of a medium firmness and keep your neck bolstered by pillows.
The occurrence of back pain is a common problem. So common in fact that four out of six people experience it. Many people believe that back pain occurs as a result of one event that takes place directly before the pain begins. In many cases, it is the last portion of a line of events that led to the pain.
