Rudraksha is a seed of a broad-leaved tree generally grown in the foothills of the Himalaya around the Gangetic plain. The origin of the name of the tree or the seed is a Sanskrit word Rudra, means Shiva and the reason of the name is the hidden power of the Hindu God Mahadidev Shiva in the seed. But, there are several types of Rudraksha depending upon the number of vertical lines of furrow on the structure or widely known as Faces and the power of the seed too changes as per the number of faces. So, to know which one is best for you, you must have to know the powers first.

What are the powers of different Rudraksh?

Here is a brief detail of different Rudraksha as per the number of faces.

Single-Faced: It is one of the rarest forms of Rudraksha with the divine power of the Lord Shiva in the incarnation form that can fill a person s life with all richness, happiness and prosperity.

Flexible displays soon to be in production

Thursday, March 17, 2005 

Roll up displays for use in hand-held gadgets will be available for mass production by March 2007 according to co-developer Philips. Working with US based paper pioneer E-ink, Philips have developed a 13cm wide screen which is just 0.1 millimetres thick and can be rolled up so that it is only 15 millimetres in diameter.

The screen, which Philips hope to license to makers of in-car satellite navigation systems, mobile web browsers and smart phones, uses no back light and displays a monochrome image in four shades of grey as well as black and white. According to Philips the screen is able to give a “paper-like contrast”.

The screen consists of a backing layer of plastic film which contains a matrix of transistors. This is topped off with layer transparent “electronic ink” capsules and a layer of clear plastic. The capsules are approximately 50 micrometres in diameter and contain polarised black and white particles. Using the transistors, a pattern of positive and negative charge can be applied which manipulates the particles to form monochrome images.

Fifteen killed in apartment fire in Osaka, Japan

Wednesday, October 1, 2008 

A seven story concrete apartment building in the Naniwanaka Naniwa Ward of Osaka, Japan was set ablaze, killing at least 15 people. The fire started early in the morning on October 1st in the Video DVD Cat sex shop on the first floor.

At least eight people were rescued from the building, four of whom were seriously injured in the fire. Most of the injuries and deaths were caused by smoke inhalation and carbon monoxide poisoning. According to authorities, all of the fatalities were in private viewing rooms in a video shop that was located on the first floor of the building.

The sex shop had 32 cubicles for watching videos, all of which were equipped with a bed, television, and video deck. Due to the beds, and a shower, shops like this are often used as cheap hotels. A customer, who fled to safety when the fire started, said to the media that the inside of shop was dark, and that he had difficulty seeing where he was going as he escaped.

Witnesses said that they first noticed a burning smell at 2:30am local time, and that the fire was reported to Osaka Fire Department around 3am. 40 fire trucks and 120 firefighters took part in the efforts to bring the blaze under control. The fire was extinguished at around 4:30am, after burning for about one and a half hours. The cause of the fire is not yet known.

3. Got kids around? Get them to help you out. As long as the chores are age appropriate you should have some happy little helpers making your work load easier. It s a good way to get the family involved and reduce the workload.

4. When you have a large amount of cleaning to do instead of getting overwhelmed, just take it one thing at a time. Really busy for a few days and have lots to do before friends come over? If you think about how you have to clean the whole house that can get upsetting, but if you divide it up to just cleaning the bathroom or the bedroom it gets much easier. It s a mental game with your self but it works.

5. Make a schedule for the week. You don t need to clean a bathroom every day but a few times a week is not a bad idea. So plan out your week, make sure everything gets hit but spread it out. In conjunction with tip #1 this can strongly reduce your workload throughout the week.

6. Instead of putting dishes in the sick after meals, simply load them strait into the dish washer. It will keep clutter off of the counter and out of the sink. Run the dish washer at night if it s full but don t wait too long.

7. Listen to music while you clean. There are many proven benefits of music related to stress relief. It can give you energy, calm you down, or even make you happy. It even makes the end result that much more enjoyable.

With these 7 tips housekeeping can be made easier. Owning a home is work, there is no way around that, but it can be made easier. Keep on top of the cleaning, spread it out over the week, and try as you can to split up the workload and everything will work out great. It is not difficult on anyone to spend a few minutes a day cleaning. So from your caring Hawaii Home Builder happy cleaning!

All About Online Debt Consolidation

Submitted by: Armandina Rathbum

With our slow economy there are more and more people that are finding themselves in a poor situation financially. Even those who have pride in their good credit score can find themselves in a difficult situation and with that credit score falling. Many people are constantly looking for ways to improve their financial position and ways to reduce their monthly debt payments. Online debt consolidation is one viable way that can help to reduce your debts. There is so much information on the internet and that includes information and help on your financial obligations.

When looking for advice online though you should always be careful as there are a lot of different information sources and different companies selling online debt consolidation services. Although many of these companies are legitimate, there are unfortunately some that aren’t. Don’t let that scare you off though because there are a lot of great sources that can offer you help.

As long as you do your research then you can find some great information from some good companies, it is just a matter of knowing how to tell if a company is good or not. The first thing you need to look at is how long the company has been in business for. The longer record they have the more assured that you can be about using their service. As there are more and more people struggling with finances and getting into debt there are also more and more online consolidation companies appearing. A brand new company will not have the same reputation as an established company does when they deal with your creditors. You also have to be wary of a brand new company too since it doesn’t yet have a reputation so it is difficult to tell if it legitimate or not.

Some of the online debt consolidation companies will offer you a loan of the amount of debt that you owe and with that loan you would pay off all your debts and then you would have just one payment every month to pay. This single payment makes it easier to keep track of your debt and should be at a lower monthly amount than what you are currently paying. If you consider one of these loans just keep in mind that the company with the lowest monthly payment isn’t necessarily the best company. You need to consider the interest rate and the term of the loan because even though the monthly payment may be less, if the term of the loan is much longer then you will pay more money in the long term.

Some online debt consolidation companies don’t offer a loan but instead will work with you and your creditors to get a better deal on all of your debts. Because these companies deal with creditors all the time and have a reputation then they can often negotiate a better deal for you. When they have negotiated better deals with your creditors then they will add up your debts and work out how much your total monthly payment will be. Then you will pay them that amount each month and they will distribute the payment to all your creditors. This way you have only one payment each month to worry about and you have less to pay each month due to the negotiated debt amounts and interest rates. This time of company is often referred to as a credit counseling service and they will also help you to budget so you can avoid getting into a difficult financial situation again in future. They will charge a small fee but you will still be better off than you were beforehand.

Online debt consolidation can really help you get out of a difficult financial situation, pay off your debts and get back on your feet. As long as you do some research and get the best deal for your own situation then you will soon be on the road to financial recovery.

Police remove valuables from unlocked cars

Thursday, August 27, 2009 

Police officers in Richmond in south-west London, England are removing valuable items like handbags and laptops from unlocked vehicles and leaving notes telling owners to collect their items in Twickenham police station in a bid to try and encourage car drivers to lock the doors of their vehicles.

There is a high number of in-car thefts or “smash and grab” attacks in the borough. Last year, 1,300 of these attacks were reported in the area. 220 of those cases involved satellite navigation systems or sat-navs. But the numbers of these thefts occurring have been rising recently. The figure has risen by 40% until July.

25 cars have been targeted so far but there has been only one car where an item has been removed with a note left for the owner to collect it. If there is nothing on display but the car is unlocked the owner will be sent a letter telling them to be more careful. These tactics should only be attempted by police officers if they cannot find the owner nearby.

The project has received the backing of Richmond Council. A council spokesman from Richmond-upon-Thames said: “We have issues with theft in the borough — particularly theft from cars. We see our borough as a green and pleasant place. Car owners therefore can be lulled into a false sense of security in that they leave items displayed prominently in unlocked cars.”
