Tie Maintenance 101

If a tie could speak, it would implore you to treat it patiently for longevity. A badly treated tie, has a short life and you spend more money than necessary for replenishing your stock of ties.

Proper care of the tie will ensure that there is no wearing of the fabric and prevents damage to the tie. The most common mistake in the caring is at the end of the tie-wearing time period. Most of us have a tendency to just yank off the tie and pull hard to untie the knot.

To avoid damage to the tie while taking it off and untying it, exercise a little patience. Carefully loosen the tie and take it off and then untie the knot. The best way to untie is to reverse the steps used to tie the knot. After untying, loosely roll up the tie and store it.

It is highly recommended that even as a novice tie wearer, you never store your tie without untying its knot. It can lead to permanent wrinkles on the tie. Keep a few days space between wearing the same tie. This allows the tie to return to its wrinkle-free state.

Always store your ties by loosely rolling them. To roll a tie, begin by holding the narrow end against your palm, and then winding up the rest of the tie, with the wide end on the outside. Lay the roll on a flat surface on the coiled side. This will ease out the wrinkles in a few hours, leaving your tie fresh for use again. Same method is used to store ties while traveling. Another way to store ties can be to invest in a tie organizer or a tie case.

If you get a stain on your tie, take it to the dry cleaner and explain the origin of the stain. Silk ties do not fare well in dry cleaning, so the stained tie is either treated by hand or replaced with another one. Do not machine wash ties as it stretches and spoils the tie.

Do not pull any loose thread on the tie; carefully trim it down with the help of scissors.   

You can lightly iron the tie (without steam) at low temperatures to smooth out some wrinkles.  Hot ironing is not good for ties as it weakens the fabric. Use the appropriate fabric setting while ironing the tie.

You can also steam out the wrinkles by hanging the tie in the bathroom during a hot shower, or by holding it over a kettle with steam. You must not allow water to touch the tie though. To dry the tie, roll it up in a clean towel and leave for one day. You will have a wrinkle free tie the next day.

Washing your tie can lead to shrinkage so you must avoid hand or machine washing, instead trust a dry cleaner with your tie. If you dry clean silk ties or they will lose their luster and color. Also keep water away from your silk ties as it will stain them. Keep cologne away from your tie. It is the fastest way to ensure your tie loses color. Blot any stain on your tie, but do not rub it. Rubbing will spread the strain. Some patience and a little careful handling can give your tie longevity and durability.

The best part about this is that you can rely on the help of your fellow bridesmaids for assistance. Here are some tips to help you execute the planning for these events.

Get together with your fellow bridesmaids and come up with a budget for these events. The decorations, food, entertainment, and even favors will cost money. So you need to know how much everything will cost theoretically and plan accordingly. Planning your expenditures will also help give you a map of where to start when looking for all the previously mentioned items and do it in good time.

When you are done split the duties between yourselves and get started. The good news is that traditionally a bridal shower is about 4 weeks before the actual wedding and the bachelorette party is the night before so this gives you breathing room to plan for both and not feel as overwhelmed.

Now to actually find items to use as decorations think about what will be the party’s theme. A good place to start is to use information you’ve gathered from helping the bride plan her wedding. If she has picked a particular theme or color scheme use that as a guide.

If not use any specific design element that echoes something she wants in the wedding. Otherwise it is up to you to pick the theme. Make sure that it is something interesting and gets guests thinking about weddings. You can also keep a lookout for decorations online. The internet and modern manufacturing have made it possible to find items and decorations to fit almost any occasion.

Really good to have if you don’t want your website looking like your typical, run-of-the-mill “template” structure.

Tip 3 – Is it Extensible?

If the theme developer has taken the time to produce a well-constructed and robust theme, then the functionality should be in place to extend the theme as you need it to. Whether it be adding more widgets or customizing the header of your site, check the features and make sure this option is possible. A good indicator is to have these available through the WP dashboard and NOT having to get your hands dirty in the code.

Tip 4 – Search Engine Love

Also, confirm that the developer actually responds to the questions that arise – this will show that they’re active and actually care about their customers experiences.

The sad truth about making use of commercial dog food is that it gets the best of your dog. Most dogs who go through commercial dog food feeding can suffer from many ailments. Food allergies, potential kidney problems, food intolerance, sluggishness and tooth decay are only some of these.

The best thing that you can do to a dog who is suffering from any of these or any other thing brought about by commercial dog foods is to make use of barf feeding. Barf stands for Biologically Appropriate Raw food or Bones and Raw food. Yes, that is right by feeding your dog with fresh raw foods you can avoid many of the problems that were mentioned above. The main reason behind why barf feeding is better is because the systems of dogs aren’t meant to eat processed foods. These can contain many unnatural ingredients that dogs cannot digest. In the past dogs lived in the wild and they fed on natural raw food, thus making them built for this types of food.

Barf feeding includes making sure that your dog gets a good amount of meat or proteins. These are usually given in many different types such as veal, rabbit, duck, turkey, chicken and pork. You may actually go ahead and feed your dog any meat that is available. This type of feeding also includes giving your dog a good amount of raw bones with some meat on it. A good ratio of raw meat to bones is 1:2, although some dog owners make use of 1:1 also.

Skip Tracing 101

Skip tracing is the art of locating a person who is hard to find. The private investigator must use skill and coercion to locate these types of people.

Skips would include people like: criminals, people hiding from spouses, long lost loves, old friends, and so on. There are many reasons people might need a skip trace. As with most investigations you will be performing, each skip trace will require customized investigations.

Finding people who do not want to be found is a difficult task. In fact, it is the hardest thing a private investigator will ever do. The reason being, when people want you to find some one, they usually have limited information on that person. That means you will probably just have the persons name and a general location to go by.

We will create a few steps to follow to find general information on people. We can’t cover the whole of skip tracing in this article, because it would take about 200-300 pages. Each skip trace will be different, so different material will be needed for each one.

First, you need to do an online search at a free phone listing site. Your skip will probably have an unlisted number, but it is always good to look at the obvious first. Your skip might be hiding in plain site. Use information your client has provided you. Your client may not know where your skip lives, but they do know where the skip used to live. You can narrow your search to those areas for that person’s name.

A lot of times, the client will have a past phone number. You can perform a search for “reverse phone number searches” on any search engine. You can do these for free. Reverse phone number searches allow you to enter a phone number and get the name and address used with that phone number. Using the reverse phone search in combination with searching phone number listings, will often times lead you to your skip.

The next things you need to search are criminal and civil records. By now, you should have some idea of locations your skip has lived in the past. Narrow your search down to the counties your skip lived in the past. Search for the court clerk of each county online. Most counties will have an online listing of records. Look to see if your skip has any records in any of these counties. The court records, if there are any, will lead you to assets, past aliases, and associates. All of this information will be useful in tracking down the skip.

The next thing you are going to have to do is interview people. You are going to have to make phone calls and hit the streets in order to speak with friends, relatives, and business associates of your skip. This should be your final stop. A private investigator must be able to coerce information out of people. You will learn pretty fast once business is rolling in.

As you can see, a private investigator must develop research and interview skills in order to track people down. It is one of the most requested services sought by clients. Spend a lot of time studying this art and practicing the methods needed, as this will be the skill that will set you apart from all on the private investigators.

Patent Law 101

Patent Law 101

“To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, by securing for limited Times to Authors and Inventors the exclusive Right to their respective Writings and Discoveries.” That phrase is from the U.S. Constitution and it is the foundation on which our current intellectual property law is based.

What is a patent? A patent gives you the exclusive right to use a process or a product which you invented.

What are some examples? Thomas Edison’s electric light, the Salk polio vaccine, the Pentium 4, and the cardboard coffee cup holder are all patented.

What is the philosophy behind patents? One theory is that inventors should be rewarded for their hard work and the time and energy they put into their inventions. Another theory is the utilitarian notion that granting patents leads to the greatest good for the greatest number. This theory can best be understood in economic terms.  If we grant patents businesses and individuals will invest time and capital in developing new processes and products, which in turn will promote economic growth and development.

There is however a countervailing theory that runs against patents. A patent is basically a monopoly, and a monopoly is able to charge higher prices than would be possible with competition. This desire to avoid permanent monopolies helps explain why patent grants are not permanent ?they expire after a certain number of years.

Why would someone want to study patents? Several reasons. First, in order to learn what kinds of inventions can be patented. Second, to learn about what technologies are generating patents. Third, because the inventions themselves are often very interesting.

By reading up on patent cases, you become familiar with the rules governing what is considered a patentable invention and what the procedures are for getting a patent. This teaches you how to spot something that could be patented.

Part of the procedure for getting a patent is to write up what it is you invented. You have to write your claim broad enough to protect your invention, but not too broad so as to claim more than what you actually invented. For example, when Samuel Morse invented the telegraph, he tried to claim every means of sending messages using electricity. If you think about it, that wording would include not only the telegraph, but email as well.

By knowing what technologies are generating patents, you also know what technologies are important in the marketplace. What are some examples? Magnetic Resonance Imaging machines, semiconductor manufacturing equipment, biotech patents involving genetically engineered plants or microorganisms, chemical compounds with medicinal properties, computerized financial services systems, to name a few.

Being familiar with what has been done in the past can give you ideas about what similar things could be done in the future.

Patent disputes often involve new technologies that are very interesting to learn about. The patent literature often includes a great deal of technical information about the technologies involved in a patent dispute. The information is collected, organized, and summarized in a more thorough manner than you would find in a newspaper, but is not so technical that you need a PhD to understand it.

So who here at our company is eligible to submit patent ideas? Electrical Engineers doing design work are good candidates. But software can also be patented if it is new and novel and merits a patent.

The value of patents as intellectual property varies greatly. Some can be worth millions. Some are barely worth the time and cost of filing them.

Others make you smile. While reading about patents, I learned that someone actually patented his golf swing. I will now demonstrate the golf swing for you. To me this seems a little silly. But it also raises some interesting possibilities. As an ice skating enthusiast it makes me wonder if you can patent a new jump in figure skating. If you can come up with the next axel or triple lutz, maybe you can.

While pursuing my interest in patents, I learned of a special summer camp for children called camp invention. This summer camp teaches children about basic science and about famous inventions and their inventors. Children who attended this camp give very favorable reports of it.

Having an interest in patents exposes you to the great inventions and inventors of the past. It recreates some of the excitement of discovery ?of finding a way to use a new technology to solve a real world problem in a way that has never been done before. It also can expose you to new technologies that you did not know about before, and spur you to learn more about them.

Edison said invention was one part inspiration and 99 % perspiration. Be encouraged by these words. Inventors are really problem solvers. As you tackle problems, remember what Edison said.

Why Do You Need a WordPress.org Site Over a Free WordPress.com Site?

You’ve decided after a great deal of research and recommendations from friends that you’re going to use WordPress to power your personal website. So you head over to WordPress.com, excited at the possibilities.

As you begin going through the setup process, you start noticing tiny details that you didn’t notice before. For example, your site exists at mysite.wordpress.com rather than the mysite.com domain you bought. You may also learn that in order to use that domain, you’ll need to pay WordPress $ 8.25 month on top of the domain name costs. Then, once your site is running, you notice that you can’t install plugins or customize your theme.

What is going on?

In this article, we’re going to cover the key differences between WordPress.com and WordPress.org. We’re also going to show you why WordPress.org is the best choice for setting up your WordPress website.

How is WordPress.org Different from WordPress.com?

If you’re looking to build your own WordPress website, the most important difference between WordPress.org and WordPress.com is the ability to customize almost anything. WordPress.org lets you do it, WordPress.com does not. That’s it.

What is WordPress.org?

WordPress.org is home to the original, customizable content management system (CMS) itself, commonly referred to as “self-hosted WordPress”. WordPress.org is where you go to actually download the WordPress files to use on your site. When people refer to having created their site “using WordPress”, they are usually referring to WordPress.org.

Since the WordPress CMS exists on your own server, you are free to customize it as much as you want. You are also responsible for installing and hosting the WordPress platform on your own server, that you pay for. This includes installing any theme you want (free or paid themes are available), installing any plugin you want (free or paid options as well), and customizing any code.

What is WordPress.com?

WordPress.com exists on WordPress.com and nowhere else. You do not control the server or hosting, which is why you cannot customize a WordPress.com site beyond choosing from a selection of free themes.

This is also the reason why default WordPress.com sites contain advertising and exist on what is known as a “subdomain”. A subdomain is effectively a part of a primary domain. For example, mysite.wordpress.com is a subdomain of the primary domain, wordpress.com.

WordPress.com does offer a WordPress.com Premium package that starts at $ 8.25/month. It includes some features that make it somewhat more customizable, but nowhere near the level of a self-hosted WordPress.org site.

Why WordPress.org Over WordPress.com?

There are several reasons why we strongly advocate hosting your own WordPress website from WordPress.org over a WordPress.com blog:

1. Complete Theme & Plugin Control

Select and customize any WordPress themes and plugins you like. You can install free themes and plugins or use paid premium themes and plugins. Then you are free to modify and customize those themes and plugins in any way you like.

With WordPress.com you are limited to only a select set of free WordPress themes. You are not allowed to modify any fonts, colors, styles, or layouts on your site.

Once you have your self-hosted site set up, we highly recommend taking advantage of these premium WordPress theme creators:

  • Elegant Themes87 beautiful, premium WordPress themes for only $ 69!
  • ThemeForest — The largest selection of premium WordPress themes!
  • The Genesis Framework — The first and most popular theme platform for WordPress.
  • WooThemes — One of the largest selections of professional WordPress themes.
  • Headway Themes — Drag and drop theme builder for WordPress.
  • Array16 of the most gorgeous, best-designed WordPress themes for just $ 89!

2. Marketing Control

Whether you plan to launch an ecommerce site or a simple blog, you are going to want to market yourself somehow to grow an audience, traffic, or customer base.

Marketing a website can mean many things, including sign-up forms to get people to subscribe to your blog posts or newsletter or account creation capabilities to allow people to purchase your products.

With a self-hosted site, all of these options are available to you via theme features and plugins. With a free WordPress.com website, your options are extremely limited, mostly to a small blog subscription or contact form.

3. Size & Speed

By hosting your own WordPress site, you can select the best web hosting for you. This means you can choose how much space you want to purchase for your site, how fast your server will be (site speed is vital for SEO), how you want to handle your email, and how secure your website will be.

An additional benefit is being able to set up WordPress managed hosting. Managed hosting provides servers built for WordPress sites, 24/7 security, updates your version of WordPress and your plugins, backs up your site automatically so nothing is ever lost, and repairs problems if they ever arise.

We recommend the following WordPress managed hosting providers:

  • WP Engine — The best all-around WordPress host. Read why we trust WP Engine to host this site!
  • GoDaddy — Easy hosting for beginners with stellar support and the lowest cost at just $ 3.99/month!
  • Flywheel — Built for designers and creatives, with developer tools for just $ 15/month.
  • Media Temple — Premium WordPress hosting. Use coupon code: WP10125 to save 25%!
  • SiteGround — Great support and developer tools for just $ 14.95/month.

4. SEO

As we mentioned earlier, using WordPress.com’s free site option means your site is going to be on a subdomain like mysite.wordpress.com rather than a primary domain you own such as mysite.com.

Data shows that subdomains and free website platforms do not perform as well as primary domains. Think about the last time you saw a subdomain ranking on a search engine for any keyword as opposed to a primary domain? While having a free site as a subdomain on the wordpress.com network does drive traffic to a site thanks to the exposure the wordpress.com domain brings, it is rare when a subdomain out-ranks a primary domain website.

Additionally, a self-hosted website can be fully customized. Meaning you can optimize every single page on your site to make it more attractive to search engines for the keywords you want to rank for. With a free WordPress.com website, you are not able to customize at that level.

5. Make Money From Your Site

Free WordPress.com sites do not allow you to place any advertising on your website until you reach 25,000 pageviews per month. Even then, you are limited to using the WordPress Ad Control feature, which has few options and allows for little control of the advertising shown on your site.

With a self-hosted site you can advertise in any way you wish. You can place Google AdSense ads or any other type of text-based, link-based, or display advertising anywhere you like. The ability to implement this type of advertising can offset hosting and domain costs, making your website more profitable.

Reminders When Choosing to Self-Host

There are a couple of things to keep in mind when deciding to self-host your website:

  1. Paying for your site: Domain costs, web hosting, email, third-party marketing costs, etc. All of these services are generally very affordable, but keep in mind that they can add up. If you are planning to self-host, make sure you have the funds necessary or have a plan to monetize your website through selling products, services, or through advertising.
  2. Development may be needed: Though you can choose from many amazing themes and plugins on a self-hosted WordPress site, customization is almost always needed. If you are not comfortable working with code like PHP or CSS, you may need to consider budgeting for a WordPress developer to help take your site to the level you are aiming for.

Wrap Up

We hope this post has shown you why a self-hosted WordPress.org site is preferable over the free WordPress.com version. Our entire WP101 training series is based on self-hosted WordPress.org sites, after all.

If you are interested in creating your own WordPress website, we cannot stress enough how vital it is to learn how to purchase your own domain, hosting, and how to monetize your website, in addition to learning the ins and outs of WordPress.
