On Beauty, Personality and the Influence of Confidence
2011-12-31 03:40:00
Although I fully subscribe to the idea of beauty being in the eyes of the beholder, there are still cases where beauty cannot be seen, no matter how hard you look, and how permissive and easygoing the beholder may be. There are people who are simply not beautiful, not by any classical or modern standards. Of course, the question may arise what exactly is beauty, and we might get into a discussion of geometrical proportions, including symmetry, shapes and sizes. And many may cry out how beauty is relative and subjective, and I fully agree with you, but notwithstanding all that, we do, more often than not, agree on what is deemed beautiful and by exclusion what is not. So what if you happen to score low on the beauty level? So what if you are not certified to be among the sexiest men and women alive? Exactly, don't despair. You still have a go at beauty because there is still the matter of personality. Personality is another shady area though. The main problem of personality is that ...

Home Ownership Confidence Shifting Among Younger People
2011-10-28 07:00:00
An October paper prepared by economists at the Boston Federal Reserve Bank measures the confidence level of consumers in today's housing market. The paper asked a series of questions and grouped the answers according to age, ZIP, income, gender, among other factors. Not surprisingly, the paper showed that older consumers have more confidence in the market and would consider buying another home. It is the younger generation that has doubts. Us older geezers, we've had to listen to our parents and grandparents lament about the Great Depression. My mother never shut up about it. Whenever something awful happened, she'd draw a comparison to the Great Depression. She still saved pieces of aluminum foil and had a hard time throwing anything out. I wonder if today's kids are growing up with the same impression?

Foreigners Losing Confidence in Holding US Treasury and Agency Debt
2011-10-27 16:42:00
By Bud Conrad, Casey Research Foreign central banks buy US Treasury and Agency debt through accounts at the Federal Reserve, where it is held in custody. Without these central banks buying our debt, the US federal government would have to find a new source of funds or the result could be higher interest rates. Looking at the data on a monthly basis (and then multiplied by 12 to give the annual rate), here is the dramatic picture of how foreign central-bank purchases of our debt have shifted, from buying $500 billion to selling off $1 trillion. At this rate of selling over several months, interest rates would go higher – if other things were equal. Of course, things are . . . → Read More: Foreigners Losing Confidence in Holding US Treasury and Agency Debt

Rani (3 years old female) hailed from a good bloodline, as her pigmentation and structure said, but did not have the essential mental trait of a pure bred German Shepherd. She was a bit too difficult to be handled. Shy was shy and sometimes too aggressive to human. She used to bark continuously when kept alone, while couldn?t tolerate other dogs when kept together. She was highly unpredictable. This was due to the fact that she had lost trust in human beings, which is too common in most abused dogs.Most German Shepherd Dogs that have been abused often becomes too difficult to be handled.

Lose Fats - Gain Confidence When You Lose Weight was written by Chris Chew from"How do I lose 5 kg or 30 kg?""How do I gain some muscles and tone up sexily?"It is simple. Yes, you heard it right, it is simple. All it requires is your commitment and discipline on your part. Do I hear you say "Yes" to that? If so, here goes.NUTRITION ? Physiologically, you have to burn 7000 calories to lose 1 kg or 2.2 pounds. You can lose those weight through a combination of decreasing caloric intake to a healthy level and expending calories through physical fitness activities.For example, let's say you currently take in 2,000 calories a day. If you decrease that by 300 (half plate of chicken rice) and added 200 calories worth of exercises a day (25 minute jog), you would be at a 500 caloric deficit. So, eating 300 less calories a day and expending 200 calories a day through physical fitness activities will result in a net of half kg lost per week. This can be done too by eating...
