Marketing Chiropractic with Facebook

Posted By Matthew Loop DC on January 22, 2009 @ 2:08 pm

Being the fact it’s only just a few years old, Facebook has recently exploded in growth and substantially risen in the popularity ranks. Like other social networks and platforms, in no other place can you connect with so many highly-targeted people in so little time with your chiropractic marketing. Talk about one of the ultimate forms of leverage! As Facebook continues to virally sizzle with user-activity, many corporate giants are fighting tooth-and-nail to get a piece of the marketing pie.

Microsoft, Google, and Yahoo supposedly engaged in a high-stakes bidding war to just purchase a small share of Facebook’s massive appeal and success. Microsoft eventually sealed the deal, shelling out 240 million bucks for just less than 2% of the company! What should this mean to you as a chiropractor and business owner? Well, if these big-dogs are salivating at lucrative possibilities, you should be too from a new patient and branding standpoint. From the previous purchase, it’s estimated that Facebook is now worth in excess of 15 billion!

Three years ago I began my endeavor to teach social networking and social media marketing to chiropractors. At that time, MySpace was the most popular site, and Facebook was mostly college kids and no one else. Facebook has since become a global competitor attracting people of all ages and backgrounds, and now MySpace is beginning to copy some features on it’s rival. With the live-feeds on both these sites, the time is now for chiropractors to tap into the potential for success.

Ive been allowing my voice to be heard about social media sites like Facebook for years now, and its not just to hear my own voice! There are upwards of 140 million members on Facebook, and a growth of 200,000 new members on a daily basis. If those numbers don’t explain my fervor about it, then nothing will. Its an entrepreneurial goldmine.

When it comes specifically to chiropractic marketing, you’re able to connect with countless people in your community and successfully brand yourself in a way that is appealing and personable. People are going to begin to come to you with their health problems, because they have seen you and feel that they trust you. This means that social media sites will actively help you draw tons of new patients through your doors each month.

Not only is this form of chiropractic marketing totally free, but its also a fun and exciting process. Connect with people across the globe with keyword specific marketing. I have friends who have had great success selling their books by marketing for highly targeted niches and people of certain literary interests. This is just the beginning of whats possible. Make your profile personal with photos, songs, and videos that you enjoy. Poke people and send messages to others who enjoy the same hobbies and activities.

It’s blatantly obvious if mega-giants like Microsoft and Google can foresee huge profit waterfalls coming Facebook, that opportunities are abundant for any profession, including chiropractors. I recommend setting up your first account right now and begin to familiarize yourself with the social network and interface.

Begin to join groups that fit your profile on this site, and share your chiropractic story with them. Sell yourself as though you were a product, which you are, and people will become increasingly interested in you and your chiropractic practice. As your credibility and name grow in the community, you’re going to see countless new patients walking through your doors each month. All of this is for free!

Having eyelid surgery done is virtually one of the fastest and painless procedures available nowadays. However, there are certain points to take note of in order to manage your expectations from the operation. These are crucial to you enjoying a positive outcome from having had the surgery.

Eyelid surgeries result in few or no complications but there can still be the odd failed cases. It depends largely on the surgeon’s competency levels and after surgery care. The patient must also abide by the instructions given to care for the wound once discharged.

With most eyelid surgeries, incisions will be made to your eyelids in order to manipulate the layers of tissue underneath. These incisions take time to heal. Your surgeon will need you to follow certain steps in order to ensure their recovery.

One of the dangers to avoid is a swelling of the operated area. Listen to your surgeon’s advice on how to prevent the area from getting dry. This is done by applying the medicinal ointment provided by the doctor. Sometimes ice packs might be required in order to help reduce swelling and inflammation.

Any patient will be worried about possible scarring as a result of incisions made to the eyelids. This can occur if you do not heed the surgeon’s instructions on after surgery care, such as taking your medicine and applying the ointment. There might also be other precautions such as avoiding certain types of food that might increase the possibility of scars forming.

During the healing process, you might feel some discomfort around the incisions such as itching or irritation. This is part and parcel of most operations. Avoid scratching and consult the surgeon if you can unable to handle the pain.

It might take at least two weeks for your eyelids to heal after the surgery. Once that happens, you will be delighted with the results. In order to enjoy this joy after the pain, heed your doctor’s advice and stay away from environments and activities that might complicate your recovery.

Once you have completely recovered from the eyelid surgery, you will look younger with the cosmetic effects of the procedure. Whether it is upper or lower eyelid surgery done, the benefits are equally attractive and life changing. Prepare for a different you and always follow the surgeon’s instructions to the letter for a complete recovery.

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Party Food Cooking

Posted By KC Kudra on @ 2:07 pm
by KC Kudra

Cooking is part of the fun when you are planning a party but some people get into a panic, worrying that they have under- or overestimated the amount of food required, whether the food they are making will be enjoyed by everyone or whether their party food recipes will turn out right.

How Much Food for a Party?

Forget about using a scientific formula to find out how much food for a party because there is not one. The more parties you cater for, the better you can judge the right food amounts. Here are some tips, which will allow you to better estimate the right food quantities for your party without becoming stressed!

Have you only invited adults to the party or is there a need for some child-friendly recipes as well? How long will your party last for and at what time of day is it going to be? You would need a lot more food for an afternoon barbecue than for an after dinner cocktail party, for example.

Make more of the potentially popular dishes. Almost everyone loves boneless chicken recipes, so make a lot of those because there will be other dishes, such as international recipes or seafood recipes, which will not appeal to everyone.

If you offer a lot of different dishes, each guest will have less of each one. If you have twenty dishes, your guests will probably take a spoonful of each one they like the look of. If you only have five dishes, they will eat a lot more of each.

You can guess how much food for a party by multiplying the number of expected guests by the amount they will probably eat. Always round your estimates up rather than down because it is better to have some food left over after the party than run out of it before everyone has finished eating!

Make sure you have some bulk food items too, such as bread if you are having a sit-down dinner or nuts and olives for a cocktail party. People will nibble on these foods before starting on the main dishes or if they are still hungry between courses.

Party Food Portion Sizes

With appetizers, you should allow six bites per person. With the main meal, you should allow about six to eight ounces of meat or fish, an ounce and a half of grains, five ounces of potatoes, four ounces of vegetables and an ounce of undressed salad per person. For dessert, you should allow one slice of cake, four ounces of creamy dessert or five ounces of ice cream per guest. These measures are approximate because different people have different appetites of course.

Good to Know Party Food Tips

* Do not repeat the main ingredient at a dinner party. For example, do not serve a pork appetizer followed by a pork main dish.

* If you are having buffet food, offer a choice of both warm and cold foods.

* Mix different textures, such as soft vegetable purees and crispy fresh bread.

* Make sure you have a good variety of colors, so the food on your buffet table or dining table looks attractive.

Wine Choice: How to Cater to Good Taste

Posted By Tony Hampton on @ 1:58 pm
by Tony Hampton

If you have ever tried wine tasting you will have found its quite simple. You don’t need to be an expert and can even start without any recognized training. Etiquette dictates that the gentlemen should ensure the ladies are always served their wine first. Water at room temperature is normally served at any good wine tasting parties. You might find this strange but the water is used to clean your palate out prepared for the next taste of wine. Make sure that the water you are given is not too cold as this can shock the palate and ruin the taste of your next drink.

Holding the wine glass by the stem and not the bowl in the palm of your hand is very important when it comes to wine tasting. One thing that people don’t realize is that the palm of your hand is warm and this can warm up the wine therefore changing the taste.

Tasting the wine doesn’t just involve putting the wine in your mouth and roll it around your tongue a couple of times before spitting or swallowing.

Looking at the colour is the first thing you should do when wine tasting. Make sure the glass you have been given is clean and easy to see through otherwise you can’t see the true color of the wine. To be able to see the wine and its true color clearly you should use a white background, some people use a white table cloth. White wines are not always pure white, sometimes they are a shade of green, yellow and even brown. For red wines, you will observe that it also has different shades of red, the lighter the color of the red wine is, the older it is.

There is a test that can indicate the age or the flavor of the wine and that is to run the wine around the rim of your glass and look at the color. Simply tilt your glass and observe the color of the wine, if it look like a tint of brown it will be an older wine, if it is has a shade of purple then it will be a younger wine.

Testing the scent is the next step and this is done by swirling the wine around the glass to mix in the air and then breath fully through the nose after placing the glass just above your top lip. The wine could have been in the bottle for a little as six months to many years so by swirling the wine you will be releasing the flavors. It’s like cooking at home where you stir the food in order for you to blend the flavor.

How to buy a camping gear

Posted By reklicom on @ 1:34 pm
by reklicom

Go to the large shopping malls like Wal-Mart. They hold an array of basic camping gear available at a wide range of budget. They are also great for purchasing cheap but good enough camping gear (Just make sure to consider buying the more durable equipment, not just the good-for-one-use items, if you are a frequent camper).

I you have never been camping before then your first task is to get yourself some essential camping gear. Buying new gear can be a costly exercise and if you do not have very deep pockets, or if you are on a tight budget, you might want to consider used camping gear instead.

Some Disadvantages:Some people are quite fussy and will never buy anything used primarily because of hygiene or inferior quality. Just remember that a lot of people will decide to sell off their camping gear for lots of different reasons.

Some Advantages:It goes without saying that the first obvious advantage is the price. If you know where to look, you will probably save yourself hundreds of dollars for very good quality camping gear once they become used.

If you planning on staying longer, then there is a need for lighting batteries, more food supplies, or cooking equipments. It all depends on what you are planning to do on your trip. Have a list of activities to do alongside with the materials needed. Do not forget necessary items. As much as possible avoid the luxury ones. Do not bring things that you won’t be needing. The idea with outdoor travels is packing light for ease of travel.

Some used camping gear could be unwanted gifts or maybe not up to the quality that the seller had hoped for when they made the original purchase. So it definitely pays to ask as many question as possible before you buy the equipment. You can avoid spending a lot of money by buying used camping gear but you can also bring home items that are totally useless.

Share your camping gear between hiking partners. Delegate who will bring what. This reduces the possibility of bringing more than you will need. You do not need too many flashlights do you? You get the idea.

Lake George NY, A Great Place

Posted By LJ James on January 21, 2009 @ 1:35 pm

As a Biker I love to take long Rides on my 2007 Harley Davidson, Nightrain. Some times a trip to Connecticut where one has the freedom of choice to decided if they want to wear a Helmet or not is a great place to go. Often I head up to the NY Catskill Mountains, Where a Burger and a Beer at Nicks Waterfall House in West Conesville can be the perfect end to a day of Cruising threw the Mountains.

Then there is another of my Favorite places to ride to, The Lake George NY area. My Uncle has a small Cabin in the Mountains right outside of the town of Lake George where I often stay. The area has some great long and winding roads for riding, These roads will relax even the most stressed Motorcycle rider.

There is so much history to the Lake George NY area. While on a trip one year riding around with no real destination in mind, I found myself in front of Fort Ticonderoga (fort-ticonderoga.org). Being very interested in American History I had to stop in and take the tour. The Fort was built between 1755 and 1759 and has plenty of stories to tell. It had a big roll in the American Revolution. As I walked around the Fort the I could almost imagine I had traveled back to the 18Th Century, The things I learned reminded me of the sacrifices our fore Fathers made to secure the Freedoms we enjoy and let slip threw our fingers every day.

Another thing I like to do is ride on some of the less traveled roads. Riding on a road where you see nothing but Forests and small Waterfalls for miles is very relaxing. I like to search out small little Dinners and eatery’s, Stopping at them and trying some of the foods they have to offer.

I recently met up with my Mother, Sister, Brother, Nieces, Nephew and other members of my family at the Lake George Escape Evergreen Resort Campgrounds (LakeGeorgeEscape.com), I found it a great places for me to relax for a few days. There where plenty of activities for the kids and many activities I could enjoy with the kids. In the resorts game room I won my Nieces and Nephew many prizes and I played (or maybe Battled is a more accurate word) Air Hockey with my younger Brother in the game room for hours. The resort has a pond and two pools to Swim in. Each week at the resort during the Summer has a thyme and while we where there it was Halloween week. The Camp Grounds has Nightly Hay rides around the Camp Grounds and since it was Halloween week my Brother came up with the idea of throwing out candy to all the kids as we took a Hay ride around the grounds one night. The Cherry on the top of this great resort has to be the on Grounds full service Tiki style Bar where most Nights they had a DJ to help keep the party going!

Many other things I have stopped to enjoy while riding around and staying in the Lake George area is White Water rafting, Hiking and many Trips to Six Flags Great Escape & Splash Water Kingdom. The park was known as Storytown USA when it first opened in 1954. As a Kid I used to love to watch the gun fights in its old western area known as Ghost town. The park may be much larger now and have many modern day Rides and attractions, but all the old Story town, Jungleland and Ghost town areas from the 50′s and 60s are still there! Then of course there is the town of Lake George it self with many great stores for shopping including a new shop I found last year called DILLIGAF’s. Many Arcades, Museum’s, Para Sailing, Night Clubs and Many Places to eat including some Waterfront Restaurants. Now in my opinion no trip to Lake George can be Complete without a Paddle wheel Cruise on the historic and scenic Lake George itself. The lake is known as the Queen of American Lakes. There are Two maybe three Companies you can use, But I recommend you take your trip on the Lake George Steamboat Company’s (lakegeorgesteamboat.com) Minnie-Ha-Ha. I have Pictures of me getting on this Boat with my Family that go back many years.

As Bikers We are always looking for Great places to ride to alone or with our friends and family that offer both great riding areas and many things to do. I have found Lake George to be a great area for both!

Maybe I will see you there! Your Bro L.J. James AmericanBikerX.com Listen to LJs Radio Show at BikerLowDown.com

Love Energy

Posted By Charles Taylor Pennington on @ 1:32 pm
by Charles Taylor Pennington

Have you ever come across one of those people that seem to just get it?

They seem connected, they have pleasant confidence that just makes you feel good to be around them. You can feel the energy coming off these people. Back in the day, they called it having animal magnetism.

Do you think they folks are walking around life looking for all the answers?

Dont they seem like they have them already?

What gives them this seemingly super power to create whatever they desire in life?

Its not that they have all the answers.

Its that theyve asked a few key questions.

When you have the right answers, you dont need to waste time searching for them.

As a former systems engineer I spent a lot of time getting to the core of some very complex problems. The systems Ive designed and written have run several multi-million dollar corporations and have had billions of dollars run through them.

One of the reasons that I am good at diagnosing and fixing problems in these systems is because of a simple concept one of my professors made sure we understood.

Make sure you are asking the right questions, and solving the right problems.

Thats what these folks that just seem to get it understand.

They ask themselves, what is at the core of this issue? They realize that symptoms are effects and start looking for their cause.

Ive applied my years as a system engineer to the systems that we use to create our lives. I call my work Human Being 2.0 ” The Human Operating System.

In my studies I found that one simple observation, one simple shift in attitude, can short-circuit a huge number of problems that people spend years trying to find the right answers to.

One simple instruction at the core of your Human Operating System can change everything about your life.

Consider this:

Everything is energy. Energy is intelligent. All energy vibrates. All energy harmonizes with all other energy.

You are energy. You vibrate and harmonize with all that is. The act of observing and your attitude towards it is the most powerfully creative process there is.

How you harmonize with energy is, essentially, how you create your life.

The purest energy that a human can produce is love. Thats why love energy is the greatest clearing mechanism known.

The greatest, most powerful Harmonic Thoughts are those of love.

And when the energy of your being is in harmony with love, you are in tune with the purest energy there is.

That’s why Love Energy produces clarity of mind and inspiration of thought, which lead to actions that are in harmony with what you truly desire from your life.

The abundant life that you deserve.

The Love Energy Routine is part of the answer to a question I asked. The answer was delivered through a flow of inspired, harmonic thought that was given to me to help me find peace in my life.

What is the Love Energy Routine? The answer to my question was not just the text and idea for a routine to help me feel better.

It was the idea that thoughts and emotions have energy, and that this energy can be focused and tuned. The routine uses guided visualization to put you in harmony with love and gratitude.

And when you are resonating with love and gratitude, that’s when great things start to happen.

Because we know the power of the harmony of energy, we start our seminars with the Love Energy Routine.

It does an excellent job of very quickly producing a state of clarity and harmony in the group. We know that whatever baggage and clutter that folks are carrying around can be released with simple observation of love energy.

The Love Energy Routine also focuses on gratitude. Gratitude is essentially love. Love for the things you are observing in your life.

Not love for things youve had or could have had. Not love for the things you may or may not have in the future.

Gratitude is the love for the things of now. Moreover, the love of now.

The love for the creative moment that is now.

Your mind is the most powerful creative natural resource on the planet, and its point of creation is always and only right now.

You have the ultimate power and authority to create your life however you are inspired to do so.

However, you must seize the authority and power and use it. Hone the skills and craft of creating your life. If you dont, your life will be created for you.

Action must be taken. Active thought must be involved. Keen observation is required.

Inspired thought produces the most powerful action.

Clarity produces the most inspired thought.

Love produces the greatest and purest clarity.

Downloading Free Movies Is An Great Choice

Posted By gorjup syuji on January 20, 2009 @ 2:52 pm

With present day’s technology, free films that you can download are more ordinary than most people might envision. Usually, while individuals hear “Download Movies Free,” the first thing that comes to mind is the quality of the film. This is regardless if they are an avid movie fanatic and if they may save a lot of money.

Thanks to the Web, individuals could now watch an infinite number of free movies along with even telly shows right on their computer screen. There are however, many sites that offer illegal downloads, which many times come with a nice little virus of some sort. So, it is best to find authentic ones. The Infobahn is amazingly huge, far more than anyone ever anticipated just twenty years ago.

It has come to the attention of film buffs who are not into the typical web surfing, but are looking for the innovation of web pages that offer free movie downloads. With the rising costs of movies as well as cable rental channels, many businesses are now giving you the opportunity to watch free films online for a stipulated time. These days, there are a plethera of movie stores online, many of which offer free movie downloads.

Some of these are highly regarded and are famous businesses like Msn. The kinds of films you might find vary with each company, containing iFilms and Atomfilms. A key factor to consider if you desire to watch free films online is the connection speed.

If you are utilizing a broadband connection or DSL, you can get good premium films to watch. The same cannot be stated in reference to a modem, which in this present day’s guidelines flat out suck. If you have dial-up you should ponder watching films which are streaming in nature.

You can watch them as the downloading format starts as opposed to having to completely download them before observing. However, contingently on the speed of your modem, you may desire to let the download process run for awhile before starting the film. Otherwise, it might keep halting as the film speed might be playing quicker than your notebook could download as well as format it. Another method used worldwide for the distribution of free films and Tv shows is the peer to peer network, additionally called P2P network. These networks help to provide faster downloads, and are used for transferring along with downloading music, films , and Tv shows.

P2P networks are furthermore used to handle large dimension data moves. By equipping the P2P comuter program, you can exchange as well as share files of various formats over the information superhighway. Nowadays most of the websites offering downloads of tv shows along with movies, command the user to subscribe to a membership at a very practical expense.

How To Select The Proper SAP Module For Your Business

Posted By Donald Howard on @ 2:24 pm
by Donald Howard

SAP is the short form of Systems, Applications and Products. SAP is not simply the name of worlds 1 of the widest software development corporation but too the name of the software product developed by this enterprise. SAP AG, the authorized name of the organisation since it was shaped in Germany, earlier thought of providing customers with a tool with which they can interact with a single master info base for each and every application needed across the organisation.

The idea of the tool become practical in the form of a financial accounting system identified SAP R/1, the first version of SAPs iconic enterprise software. The improved version of this application, SAP R/2, was set up towards the end of 1970s, which was mainframe based business application software. Afterwards, SAP AG launched a client -server version of the software named SAP R/3, after the advent of distributed customer -server computing.

SAP R/3 Functionality:

SAP applications, made round their latest R/3 system allows R/3 to treat accomplished operation and management tasks throughout the organisation. That implies, SAP R/3 offer the users with the instrument to supervise financial, asset, and cost accounting, production operations and materials, personnel, plants, and archived documents. It functions on Advance Business Application Programming (ABAP), which is a fourth generation programming language. The R/3 system is compatible with several platforms including Windows 2000 and uses the client/server model.

SAP R/3 Modules:

SAP R/3 is made up of several personalized running software modules. These modules combine to execute every of the working and management tasks of any organization. All individual functioning module handles specified activities on its own, but is related to the others where applicable. The most widely used modules are – Logistics, Accounting and Human Resources.

Logistic Module:

Logistics is the way of supplementary a process from starting to finish on request e.g. delivering a product at its desirable location, on request. Different tasks needed in this process are Sales and Distribution, Production Planning, Materials Management, Plant Maintenance and Quality Management etc among others, each of which are integrated by Logistic module. The varied components of this module and illustration of their functions are:

Logistic Module

Sales and Distribution module: Presales support, customer enquiry processing, quotation working, sales order processing, delivery forming, billing and sales information system.

Material Management module: Purchasing processes, warehouse management, inventory, invoicing etc.

Production Planning module: Planning & preparing production operation e.g. transport and storage of raw materials, by-products and waste etc.

Plant Maintenance module: Repair of buildings, maintenance of equipment used in the production procedure, info about machine usage and possible downtime etc.

Quality Management module: All processes associated to the quality assurance of the product.

Accounting Modules:

This module executes every last financial and accounting actions or in other words this module meets every last financial and accounting needs of the company. It is automated to offer management and reporting of ledger, receivables & payments etc. which in turn allows balance sheets and Profit & Loss (P&L) accounts to be self updated, continuously. Thus, the elementary advantage of this module is that the book reflects the real situation. The several elements of this module are:

Accounting Module Examples

Financial Accounting: Accounting functions like balance sheet, Profit & Loss statements, Compliance with accounting regulations etc.

Controlling: Controls cost as well as corporations targets, Provides information needed for decision making and future preparation.

Enterprise Controlling: Collates internal data with market information to bring out subjects in marketing strategies.

Treasury: Corporate banking, Money, budget management etc.

Capital Investment Management: Aids finance corporations in their capital investments and tracking.

Project System: Project Management I, Project budgeting, Project execution/integration, Information system, Operative structures, Project planning etc.

Human Resources Modules

As the words itself specifies, Human Resource Modules leaves a accomplished HR management system, handling arenas such as personnel planning and recruitment, personnel and salary administration, payroll and personnel development.

Initially, SAP executions as well as its training were coordinated on module lines. For illustration, in a training class on Logistics, you would learn many things about SD such as SD-MD, SD-GF, SD-SLS etc but not much about the rest of the SAP system and how SD fits into it. So, the integration between modules was altogether absent. This used to result to that, the results were optimized on the modules, but missed in integration. So, to accomplish that integration, programs are nowadays being organised along the procedure lines such as:

Order to Cash (including parts of SD, FI-AR and probably TY as well)
Purchase to Pay (including MM-Purchasing and FI-AP)
Record to Report (FI-GL etc)

With adjustment of procedure lines alternatively of modules for solutions, SAP now are moving away from describing their system as a set of modules, and now are applying the term results. These Fresh Dimension Products can stand exclusively or be integrated with R/3. Its profits include elimination of duplication, discontinuity and redundancy in data and growths the return on investment made on IT implementations. It delivers quality information designed for the Enterprise as a completely Faster and cheaper which in turn presents quality info to make a quality corporation. These results are:

Financials
Human Resources
Customer Relationship Management
Supplier Relationship Management
Product Lifecycle Management
Supply Chain Management
Business Intelligence

Conclusion:

SAP is an Corporation Wide Business Answer. This signifies that organisations running SAP can effectively integrate all of its business actions including finance, purchasing, sales, human resources etc. This integration allows each business proceedings in an organisation are available to all regions of that organization and there is no duplicate of info in separated systems.
