Three Tips for Parenting Success!

I believe there is no one way to parent. We are all different people with different family circumstances. In regards to good parenting, I think many of us agree that there are many roads that lead to Rome. So, I'm not going to try to tell you what you have to do or how you have to do it as a parent. I'm just going to give you three more tips to add to your arsenal of parenting strategies.

First, I want to point out that there is no such thing as quality time when it comes to effective parenting. Either you're there for your children or you're not. And I can certainly tell you that our kids want us to be there for them way more than they want us off saving the world somewhere else and only briefly popping into their lives in a whirlwind.

Another great tip to parenting is to build a strong food culture within your family. Countries like Italy and France that have strong food cultures also have strong family bonds. In other words, share a meal together and make it a family tradition. Now, I'm not saying to overindulge to the point where you all become unhealthy. I'm just saying that a family that breaks bread together tends to stay together.

Next, sometimes it's easier to parent other children than our own. We've all had one of our kid's friends over, and the friend was more polite and helpful than our own. This does mean our kids are lacking something. It's just natural for our kids to put themselves on auto-pilot when they are around us and their friends, who don't really know us, to be on their best behaviors when around us.

Now, as my Granddaddy always said, "Go learn, lead, and lay the way to a better world for all of us." Feel free to use these three parenting tips anytime you want to add some more options to your parenting strategies. And once again parents, thanks in advance for all that you do, and all that you will do …

Woodworking Table Saws Are One of the More Versatile Power Tools in Your Arsenal

Almost all line of work has some sort of main equipment. The painter has his canvass to pain his masterpiece. The field journalist has his trusty pen and pocket notebook to jot down hurried notes. The surgeon has his scalpel to smoothly perform an operation. Likewise, a woodworking shop would be useless without the woodworker’s centerpiece: the woodworking table saw.

Woodworking table saws have been around for more than two centuries. Some historians point to a British sailor named Samuel Miller as the inventor of the table saw in 1777. Some say that Walter Taylor built the table saw to make his primary occupation, cutting wood for ship builders, a lot easier back in 1762. Others credit the invention of the table saw to a 17th century Shaker woman named Tabitha Babbit. Who exactly made the first table saw is yet to be agreed upon. But one thing is for sure: work in almost all woodworking shop centers around the table saw.

The table saw is basically made up of a circular saw blade that is mounted on an arbor and is powered by a motor. The blade juts through the heavy and smooth surface. The raising and lowering of the blade is controlled by a handle. Modern saws have separate handles for adjusting the angles of the blade and have systems for dust collection. Yet, the basic simple structure of the table saw remains the same. The simple construction of a saw provides its main attribute: stability while cutting wood. Having a stable work surface is of prime importance. It helps a woodworker to make precise cuts and avoid mistakes.

But that is not what woodworkers value woodworking table saws for. Woodworking is such a tasking work. Various wood cuts are needed to be done throughout the day. And not only one type of cut will be needed. Throughout the day at a workshop, a woodworker makes infinite types of cuts with different angles. These saws make woodworkers’ job a lot easier because it can be used to make price cuts on almost any possible angle-be it crosscuts, rips, or bevels. Woodworking table saws are also used to square, miter, groove, shape, and join pieces.

No saw can parallel the versatility of woodworking table saws. So, it is not surprising that the woodworking saw has become the standard centerpiece of a workshop. If you are a woodworking enthusiast who loves to cut wood in your workshop during Saturdays and Sundays, or if you are a professional whose main job involves cutting wood, then you should have a table saw in your workshop.

There are many woodworking table saws out in the market. But do not just settle for the first relatively unknown saw that you happen to see on the hardware store. The sales person may talk a lot of flowery things about the saw, but do not go for it. You should see to it that your table saw would be of top quality and has a name. You’re your money count by investing on a high-quality saw made by renowned makers like Hitachi, Jet, Ridgid, Makita, Bosch, and Porter-Cable.

Although these tribute bands differ in many ways, the share the common denominator of being appreciated and enjoyed by any baby boomer loving the classic rock of the Beatles. Ironically enough, these spin-off bands began forming even while the original band was still in existence. More than simply a cover group, these bands were, and still are, deeply devoted and dedicated to the music of their heroes.

How To Determine If A Moving Company Is Trustworthy

There are many household and commercial movers in the United States and they all try to lure you with extremely cheap prices, promising high quality services. But not all of them are honest and you can be deceived if you do not know how to choose a competent mover. We want to present you the main factors to consider when looking for reliable moving companies. Check the following guide!

– Experience. For a new company it is hard to pretend that they offer high quality services at lowest price. They do not have the experience and tools to do an effective operation in minimum of time, thus consuming less fuel and working hours that must be paid to the employees by the company. On the opposite, if you find a company that has many years of experience, it likely that they have developed strategies and effective planning and human resource management. Always go with a well-established mover.

– Tools. Again, a high quality company has an arsenal consisting of modern tools and vehicles. They usually talk about these tools on their website, sometimes even presenting them in a photo gallery. Reliable companies like to advertise their brand on their moving vehicles. If you find a company that tells you that it offers the lowest price, but it does not mention a word about their equipment, chances are that it does not have a modern one or it has a few tools. It would be wise to ask about equipment before signing any paper.

– Public Image. Reputable movers want to have a clean public image and they want to make them known through various marketing campaigns. You will know that a company is good if you hear about of them more often than other companies. Usually they can offer cheap prices because they want to be ahead their competitors by providing promotional prices while they promote their image through marketing campaigns.

– Feedbacks. Positive feedbacks are also a good sign for quality results. If you find a company that has affordable prices and has good ratings and testimonials, you should check them closer. Nowadays it is easier than ever to check for ratings and general customer satisfaction. Besides checking the complaint ratio, you can access several websites and see what current and former customers have to say about the company. Naturally, a mover with numerous positive reviews should be your top priority.

Football Betting Superstitions

Superstitions are part of most people life from ancient times. In moderns times the belief that a specific action determines the positive or negative outcome of a future event is more popular than ever.

When looking for a job, when taking an exam, on your wedding day, when moving to a new house and why not when playing an important football match and placing a bet.

Before talking about football betting superstitions you should know by now that even the football players have weird game day superstitions. Here are some 2012 football team captains that follow strange rituals and hope for good luck protection:

Steven Gerrard (born 1980) and the Liverpool players like to touch the, ‘This is Anfield’ sign in the tunnel on their way to the pitch. Steven Gerrard is captain of English team Liverpool and the England national team.

Iker Casillas Fernández (born 1981), most known as Iker Casillas, Spain’s football team captain and Real Madrid goalkeeper observes a ritual in which he touches his own crossbar whenever his team scores a goal.

Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro (born 1985) or just Cristiano Ronaldo, the captain of the Portuguese national team and striker for Spanish La Liga club Real Madrid, keeps a pre-match ritual of getting his hair cut for fear of jinxing his scoring run.

Like all people, football betting fans also have their own rituals and look for good luck signs before placing a bet.

When people get some money from a bet, they say that it was because the palm of their hand started itching or because they wear the favorite colored t-shirt on the betting event.

Some people believe they should step the right foot forward or to fill the betting ticket with the left hand. As regards good luck charms, silver is used by some people for sports bets.

Television is a major supernatural superstition element. There are some people that believe that they will not win a bet if they don’t watch the game, some of them turn the TV off momentarily and then turn it on, move to other channels, stop watching the game for a moment, all this for the hope that good things will happen for the team they bet on.

There a lot of more superstition that I could tell about, but I don’t want to jinx my bet on tonight game by telling you about my lucky red pijamas.

Team Spirit – What Causes It?

Watching the matches in the FIFA world cup, I notice that the national line-ups apparently vary as to team spirit. You might wonder why this matters. Why is team spirit important? What brings it about? And what hinders it?

Sweden’s team spirit

After eliminating very good teams, Holland and Italy in qualifying, Sweden played their part, in sending defending champions Germany home early, by topping Group F. They lack individual talented players, but as a team with a collective spirit they’ve got heart and stand up to the challenge. They do well through determination and organisation.

«Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.» (Helen Keller, deaf/blind political activist)

In keeping with his no-frills squad, the manager had not picked Sweden’s all-time top scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The player had angered many of his former fans with what were seen as characteristically self-obsessed comments.

«As a team, we play as a collective, all the players together. With Zlatan, as a person, as a player, he’s an individualist, and the play goes around him. Instead, now, we play more the team all together.» (goalkeeper, Karl-Johan Johnsson).

Every single player has bought into the idea of working hard for each other and having fun together as a bigger group outside the pitch.

Leicester City’s team spirit

Winning the English Premier league, Leicester City is another football team whose performance has exceeded what might have been expected from the sum of its parts.

Leicester had some good players, but looking at the whole squad and comparing it to the so-called «top» clubs, it’s easy to see why they were such long shots to lift the title.

«You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world, but if they don’t play together, the club won’t be worth a dime.» – (Babe Ruth, baseball player)

Pundits spotted the players’ sense of team identity as a crucial factor in their success. The squad knew the manager would be there the following season. He persisted with most of the first team players he inherited. This continuity built on the legacy of the club, another cornerstone of a strong team identity.

Team spirit was also helped by the players viewing the objective of the club (i.e. avoid relegation) as one they were capable of achieving. So there was no fear of failure.

Many technical sides defend by playing lots of safe passes and so not letting the opposition have the ball. However, possession makes for a poor predictor of team performance. City were not afraid to play three misplaced passes if the forth move led to a goal. Team members felt positive and proud to be part of a group playing a successful fast-paced counter-attacking brand of football.

Other football teams

Boys playing football need to learn to pass the ball unselfishly rather than dribble past opponent after opponent until they lose the ball. They need to be a team player and not purely an individualist. Some flair adult players have been encouraged to succeed at the expense of collaboration when it is needed.

Professional football squads in England include highly rated players from other countries. These tend to have dissimilar languages, cultures, values and problem-solving approaches to difficulties. This can hamper the growth of team spirit.

Most football managers realise that team spirit can be hindered by voicing criticism of players in public. However leaders vary in their team building skills.

Trade Unions

Without any emerging team spirit within a trades union, industrial disputes would fail. Unity is strength. Members need to identity with the cause and trust each other to sacrifice short-term income. Then they have a chance to negotiate from strength and gain better working conditions and pay in the future.

Personal services

Worker’s morale is important in all walks of life. For example in many organisations dealing with human troubles and personal change – like educational, health and social services, or those to do with spirituality – team spirit can be fragile when one is faced with difficult-to-succeed-with-clients.

Many of these organisations use teams of workers with different types of professional training who may not see eye to eye. Dealing with complex and highly personal matters raises matters of deep principle. This can mean that people can be unwilling to modify how they approach things, leading to a degree of inflexibility. Leaders can help by team building encouraging the giving and receiving of support, communication and sharing. Without this, mixed groups tend to show disharmony as well as collaboration.

«Teamwork begins by building trust. And the only way to do that is to overcome our need for invulnerability.» (Patrick Lencioni, business management writer)

Unpaid volunteers tend to want to carry out their responsibilities on their own terms. With volunteers doing only short hours, team spirit suffers if members have little opportunity all to meet together to resolve different viewpoints.

Heavenly community spirit

When we make friends, we tend to do so with people who share our interests and values. With them we often feel most at home and free to be ourselves. It may be hard to imagine such a sphere where community spirit prevails. Emanuel Swedenborg painted such a picture of heavenly community. In such a scenario there are no rows about how things get done. No egos wanting their own way. People joining together in the right spirit. Only wanting what is best for each other and for the team and community as a whole.

«None of us, including me, ever do great things. But we can all do small things, with great love, and together we can do something wonderful.» (Mother Teresa, Roman Catholic nun)

Manchester United Are Back in Business

Manchester United did not have a perfect start to the current Premier League campaign. David Moyes took over from the departing Alex Ferguson and faced an unenviable challenge of meeting the pressure of high expectation. The team lost three games of their initial eight and the former Everton manager’s critics began to sharpen their knives. The Red Devils were clearly imploding and after they had fallen to eighth place on the points table, the naysayers began to question their credentials and some even stressed that mid-table was where United really belonged.

But nine matches later, and importantly, nine unbeaten games later, United find themselves in fifth place, just five points adrift of table leaders, Arsenal. How did the transformation happen? To begin with, Arsenal’s lead at the top of the table was sustained in the absence of games with big teams such as Chelsea, Man City and Man United themselves. The luck of the draw did not favor Moyes whose wards faced off against the likes of Liverpool, Man City and Chelsea, relatively early in the season.

Arsenal had been in a similar situation in 2008 when they blew a five point lead at the top of the table after an injury to their star striker. In the event the Gunners ended up in fourth place, at the end of the season. In the lead up to Arsenal’s match against United, Wayne Rooney drew attention to this fact. Given Gunners’ winning form and the perceived decline of United in the post-Ferguson era, Arsenal were expected to bank full three points from the game at Old Trafford. Liverpool had bearded the Red Devils in their den and Gunners had beaten the Merseysiders; ergo, Arsene Wenger’s men should beat David Moyes’ wards, went the argument.

But van Persie and Man United had other ideas and the home side emerged deserving 1-0 winners to bring themselves within five points of Arsenal who continue to lead the table. United have 20 points from 11 games, and apart from Arsenal, only Liverpool (23), Southampton (22) and Chelsea (21) are ahead of them on the table. It is not unrealistic to expect the Saints to drop down the table as the season wears on. With Arsenal yet to play Man City or Chelsea, the results of those games could have a dramatic effect on the hierarchy of teams on the points table. Consider also that United have upcoming games against Cardiff, Tottenham, Everton and Newcastle, all of which are there to be won, and it won’t be unrealistic to suggest that United may well be at the top of the table by Christmas.
