A Mother’s Day Wish

Any holiday is tough to get through after the death of a loved one, but Mother’s Day can be especially hard for those who have lost their mother, and for those mothers who have lost a child. Holidays tend to be painful reminders of what you’ve lost and how you used to celebrate that day. Whether you’ve lost your mother or you’re a mother who’s lost a child, this Mother’s Day is for you. Find a way to celebrate it in a way that brings back memories of your departed loved one and sheds light on the wonderful celebration of mothers everywhere.

Buy Flowers

Flowers are one thing that any mother would love to receive. If you have lost your mother, buy a beautiful bouquet and deliver it to your mother’s memorial. Pay her a visit and tell her how much you still love her. If you are a mother who has lost a child, buy a bouquet for yourself. Set the flowers out to remind yourself that you are a wonderful mother, on this day and every day.

Celebrate with Your Children

If you’re suffering the tragic loss of a child, there’s no doubt that mother’s day will be tough. But don’t forget the other miracles you have in your life. If you have other children, let them celebrate you the way you deserve to be celebrated. It’s okay to be sad and to reflect on the loss of your child, but try not to shut out your other children. They love you very much and will want to take this opportunity to show you.

Celebrate with a Different Mom

Losing a parent is heart-breaking, no matter how old you are. You relied on your mother for things that no one else could provide; support, advice, and unconditional love. Although no one can replace your mom, you can still honor Mother’s Day by celebrating a different mom. Maybe you have a grandma or aunt in your life who you are particularly close with. Perhaps your friend’s mom has been particularly supportive to you over the years. Reach out to one of these other moms this Mother’s Day so that you don’t let the day go by uncelebrated. Your mom would be happy to see you connecting with someone in her absence.

The reason Mother’s Day is so special is because it gives us a reason to give thanks to the woman who brought us into the world and for the many wonderful things she did for us thereafter. If you are that woman to someone, this day is for you, whether that ‘someone’ is with us here on Earth or not. If your own mother has past away, there’s no reason why you still can’t celebrate her on this very special day.

9 Ways to Successfully Create Good Habits and 5 Reasons Why You Fail At Breaking the Bad Ones

9 Ways to Successfully Create New, Good Habits and the 5 Reasons Why You Fail At Breaking the Bad Ones

"Your net worth to the world is usually determined by what remains after your bad habits are subtracted from your good ones." – Benjamin Franklin

We all have habits. Some are good, healthy habits, while others are bad and possibly even dangerous. Throughout our lives we often set goals to try to create new, good habits or to break the bad ones we already possess. Many people try again and again to change their habits for the better only to meet with failure in the end. Learning a new habit can be just as difficult as breaking a bad one that you've struggled with for years. There are reasons for this and steps that you can take to help ensure your success.

Establishing good, healthy habits can enrich your life in countless ways. When an action becomes a habit, it becomes automatic and you don't really have to give it much thought. Some of the healthy habits that people try to develop include; eating healthier, exercising regularly, meditating, completing chores around the home, or simply taking time out daily for them-selves. These are just a few examples but, basically anything that you want to do on a regular basis that will enrich your life and make you happier can become a habit.

Here are nine, simple tips that are easy to follow and can help you to turn healthy activities into lifelong habits.

1. Take baby steps. – You cannot expect to just dive in and be successful when developing a good habit. Start with small manageable steps. If you would like to make healthy eating a habit, start by swapping out specific foods or meals for healthier options. If you make sudden, drastic changes to your lifestyle, the odds are good that you will not be successful.

2. Make yourself accountable. – Tell a friend or family member whose opinions matter to you. By telling a trusted friend or family member about your intension to develop a new habit you promote accountability. You will be more likely to stick to your habit if you know that you will have to answer to someone other than yourself.

3. Treat yourself. – You should be proud of the fact that you are trying to make positive changes in your life. Reward yourself regularly when you stick to your new habit. Treat yourself to a pedicure or a warm bubble bath. Spend a Saturday morning sleeping in, or play a few rounds of golf on the course. Whatever it is that you love … do it.

4. One habit at a time. – Work on developing one habit at a time. If you are anything like me, there are a ton of new, healthy habits that you want to incorporate into your life. Focus on one at a time so that you don't get overwhelmed. Developing a habit, like exercising regularly might seem like a small change but it's not. When you begin to develop a new habit of any kind you are changing the way that you live your life.

5. Make sure that you really want it. – The more you want to make even small changes, the more likely you will stick with them. Don't ever begin to develop a habit that you don't want just because you think, or have been told, that it's the right thing to do. If you try to force yourself to do something you hate, you will avoid it at all costs. If you hate going to the gym, don't do it. There are plenty of good habits that you can develop that will enrich your life and that you will enjoy.

6. Plan it out.- Sit down and make a list of the good habits you would like to develop. Prioritize the list and determine what habits you would like to develop first. Once you have this figured out, write out a plan. By putting this in writing you can refer back to it whenever you need a bit of extra motivation and it will help you stay on track.

7. Be very specific. – Don't just say, "I want to make it a habit to drink more water". Instead, say, "I want to begin drinking eight glasses of water each day". By being specific you know exactly what you have to do to develop your new habit and will not become overwhelmed. If you are too vague, you could easily rationalize that you drank more water today than yesterday, even if it wasn't your desired eight glasses.

8. Use tools. – Utilize every resource that you have at your disposal. You can make lists, journals, charts, spreadsheets … anything that will help you to keep track of your goals. I often use sticky notes around the house. I will place reminders on walls, mirrors, the refrigerator, and anywhere else that I think they may be helpful. They may not look pretty but they help me to stay motivated.

9. Don't berate yourself for slip-us. – We all slip up from time to time. Just yesterday, I was snacking on a few potato chips while watching television. Before I knew it, the entire bag was empty! It happens to everyone. Realize this, and don't be too hard on yourself. Remind yourself of why you wanted to develop the habit in the first place, and then start again

"A man who can't bear to share his habits is a man who needs to quit them." – Stephen King, The Dark Tower

Why is it so difficult to break bad habits? There are things we do on a daily, or even hourly basis that we know aren't good for us. We bite our fingernails, smoke cigarettes, make unhealthy food choices, procrastinate, lead sedentary lives, etc. Every one of us has a bad habit that we would love to break, but we often have difficulty doing so. This is because, once a habit is developed, we rarely even notice we are doing it. It becomes part of who we are. If we want to improve our lives, breaking bad habits is a wonderful place to start.

Here are 5 common reasons why we often fail at breaking bad habits.

1. We expect results too quickly. – We didn't develop our bad habit in one day, and we certainly can't expect to break it in one day either. Breaking a habit takes time. We must be patient and persistent in our goals.

2. We have a low level of self-awareness. – I have been a nail biter for the majority of my life. I do it without even thinking and am usually not even aware that I have been chewing on them until I feel pain or see blood. This is because I am not always self-aware. We often go through life on autopilot, but when we are trying to break a habit, we need to slow down and pay attention to everything we are doing. We must make an attempt to really live in the moment. If we develop a stronger sense of self-awareness, we can head off our bad habits as soon as we begin doing them.

3. We use our habits as an emotional crutch. – Many of our habits, like smoking or turning to food when we are in need of comfort, serve as a coping mechanism for emotional stress or pain. We need to look for other, healthier substitutes for these habits. When I was trying to quit smoking, I would often exercise whenever I would feel an urge. The exercise took my mind off of my immediate craving and helped me to relieve my stress in a healthy way.

4. We don't tell anyone we are trying to break our habit. – Breaking a bad habit is extremely difficult. It is even more difficult when we do not have the support of our friends and family. We often fail to tell them out of fear. We think that by not telling them, we can avoid disappointing them if we fail. In order to successfully break a bad habit we must tell those we love and trust. They will give us the support we need and they will also make us accountable for our actions.

5. We are too hard on ourselves when we slip back into old patterns. – Just as developing new habits is hard, breaking old ones is extremely difficult. We will all slip up from time to time. We must stay positive and remember why we want to break our habits. Do you want to be a better role model for your children? Do you want to avoid a second heart attack? Do you want your nails to be beautiful for your wedding day? Whatever your motivation is, remember, there is a very good reason why you decided to break your bad habit in the first place. When we slip up and fall back into our bad patterns, we must take a moment to remember why it is important to break the habit. Then, we must start again.

I hope that these tips will help you to feel guided in having motivation to break habits you're not happy about or develop new ones you're proud of.

"Successful people are simply those with successful habits." -Brian Tracy

Picture Search Engines As Your Tool to Find High Quality Pictures Online

Picture search engines aim to do the impossible: to read pictures. The problem is that search engines in general are only able to read texts. That’s why even big photo sites have to make use of clear descriptions of each photo, because without the text they will not be able to index the pictures and the photos will remain unknown for the web surfer.

You need to know these limitations of search engines if you search for pictures but also when you use pictures online yourself.

The special picture search engines are developed to make the most out of the impossible conditions when searching the web for photos and other pictures. Google and Yahoo and other big search engines (SE) have had to develop special search engines to cope with picture search.

The special search engines for pictures are making use of the file name of the pictures. It is easy to locate picture files. Firstly they are often located in a folder called images, because that is a widespread practice. Secondly and more important the pictures will have one of the special extensions for pictures of which the most common are .jpeg, .jpg, .gif, and .tiff .

So to locate the picture files is not difficult for the SE. The problem comes when the search engine algorithm shall estimate the content of the pictures that is what the picture is about.

If the picture has a filename like dog.jpg it is not difficult. But if the file name is snoopy.jpg it is not so easy. The SE make use of the ALT tag. In the ALT tag an additional text is provided that is coupled to the picture when it is inserted at the webpage. You can see the ALT text when you mouse over the picture, or if for some reason the picture is not being shown on the webpage.

The ALT text is a tool to help blind people to get information about the pictures. As the picture search engines are picture blind as explained they will also make use of the alt text to get information about what the picture is about. In reality only a smaller number of pictures are providing this additional information in the alt tag.

In addition to these approaches the picture search engines are using the text around the picture to estimate what the picture is about. When a caption is obvious it should function as a source of very useful information for what the picture is showing. In practice many captions are not so precise or useful.

You can try to take a look at a number of well visited websites and check if the pictures are easy to identify form their file name, from their alt text (if any) and from the text near to these picture. You will probably see many examples of how these aspects on the websites could be greatly improved.

Anyway the special picture search engines are becoming better and better, and the number of indexed photos and other pictures are immense in the special search engines for images like Google Images and Yahoo Image Search. These search engines for pictures are harvesting the pictures they find on websites and do their best to make them searchable.

You will get at mixture of thumbnail pictures of very low quality – probably the most common pictures online – and better quality photos and other pictures. The high quality photos and pictures in general are more difficult to find or at least more difficult to sort from the mainstream use of low resolution online pictures. High resolution pictures of professional high quality are rather difficult to locate with the picture search engines.

If you are simply interested in seeing a picture as a source of information, like you want to see a picture of an old car model, the picture SE are the first choice.

When you need to find pictures online by searching with the picture search engines you have to be aware of the limited quality of the files as most of the pictures are from amateur photographers, or even from school children. In addition to this limitation you cannot always count on the caption to the pictures. Maybe the car model is not the correct one stated in the caption compared to the car model shown on the picture, and so on.

Besides these considerations you have to be aware of the copyright problems you can get into. So please use a few minutes to update your knowledge with the information below.

The Top 5 Strikers in the English Premier League This Season

As we’re coming to the end of the Barclay’s English Premier League (EPL) this season it’s time to take a look back at some of the strikers who have really lit up the league and fired in the goals. Luckily, this season we’ve been blessed with some truly brilliant attacking play and some fantastic strikers who have made this happen. I’ve picked out my top 5 strikers for the season (both in terms of how many goals they’ve scored and their overall performances):

Fernando Torres – While being injured for long parts of the season, when Torres has been fit he’s been in absolutely scintillating form terrorising defences to no end. While his club (Liverpool) hasn’t had the best of season’s, many believe that if Torres can stay fit and firing on all cylinders then Liverpool will be able to finish in the coveted fourth spot.

Didier Drogba – While his best days may be behind him, Drogba continues to be the battering ram for Chelsea’s title challenge and has enjoyed one of his most prolific scoring seasons ever.

Wayne Rooney – England’s best striker by miles and the person they’re calling our best player of this generation hasn’t failed to live up to his potential this season. Always a scorer of great goals, he has now become a great goal scorer.

Darren Bent – While not the flashiest or most technically gifted striker ever, Bent certainly has that special knack of popping up in the right place at the right time to score a crucial goal.

Jermaine Defoe – Another English striker and a really lethal finisher. Defoe has pace and is someone that only ever needs one chance to score.

Playing It Safe – The Future Of West Ham United

While the move is widely expected to attract new investment to the club which could potentially fund their rise in the league the owners need to tread very carefully. While they have purchased a few players in this summers transfer window with more expected arrivals they need to ensure one thing stays the same. The club must remain a Premier League outfit. A drop into the Championship for The Hammers would scupper all current plans for the club and their move and could spell financial meltdown. The biggest opportunity for West Ham will be the advertising possibilities after their move. The Olympic Stadium will still host some of the biggest sporting events even after they move in and the Hammers will have full control over advertising no matter what the sport. The income this could generate could elevate the club into a financial state they have never been in before.

The talk amongst West Ham fans who agree with the move is that the new stadium, extra funds and bigger exposure could lead to West Ham being taken over in the same way teams like Chelsea and Manchester United have and have a multi-billionaire who would be more than willing to pump millions into West Ham to get them World Class players and push for a first ever Premier League win. Of course this is wishful thinking and while most of the teams outside of the top four of the Premier League wish this the chances of it happening are very slim. When Chelsea was taken over by Roman they had no worries of spending and salary caps and the Man City owners came in just before the cap came into play meaning that they could spend £ 100 + million rebuilding their squads but West Ham may not have the same opportunities and will have to settle for a very slow build to the team with substantial investment in the following 3-5 years after their stadium move further up the table and maybe fight for the Premier League.

In my opinion the move to the Olympic Stadium was the right one to make and the two David's are making funds available to Big Sam to try and stay in the Premier League but I just feel that the club has to be very cautious going forward. They recently told Big Sam that he needs to adapt a more attacking style of play to entertain the fans but this is a manager that is the king of not getting relegated and keeping a team in the top flight. The fans are with him one week and against him the next but fans need to understand that his job for the next couple of years is none other than to ensure survival in the Premier League. Better things will come and in the years to come West Ham fans may be singing "We are the champions" but for the time being do as you've always done best and get behind your team and manager no matter the match outcome and be that important 12th man you have always been for the club.

West Ham will move to the Olympic Stadium in 2016.

City Failed to Reach the 4th

Manchester City failed to rise to number four while the Premier League standings, on Sunday (25 / 4). The Citizens only played a goalless draw against a strong team, Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

Seizing the fourth English Premier League this season is no less exciting with the seizure of the first position. Chelsea and Manchester United took turns filling the top positions in the last three weeks this season. Fourth place or last place to get into next season’s Champions League zone contested by Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City.

Manchester United’s game this week to temporarily pushed into the top position after beating Spurs 3-1. The result is an opportunity for Roberto Mancini’s squad to be able to shift from the safe zone Hotspur Champions League with a requirement to pick full points from Arsenal at the Emirates today

However, it seems luck has not sided with the city. The Gunners are still too strong to be conquered, let alone play at own game. Can hold 0-0 draw with Arsene Wengar team has been a fair enough result for the club, who recently was suddenly rich. Facing the team that stuck in third place this time, Man. City can not do more in the game today. Because, in the first round Carlos Teves et al. never bother goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski. This situation caused most of the City players busy doing defense and difficulties to build a dangerous counter attack.

In the second half after Emmanuel Adebayor enter The Citizen occasionally can be done to pressure Arsenal. However, the host did not loosen the attack, especially when substitute Nicklas Bendtner Theo Walcott signed. Strikes, strikes Gunners far more dangerous in front of goal City. Swift pressure to City defense. City, forcing Shay Given had to fall up to secure post.

As a result, minute-76 goalkeeper was no longer able to continue the match due to injury in his shoulder after a hard kick to block the release Abou Diaby. Gunnar Neilsen Given that replaces the task may look good with an opportunity to confront all Arsenal until the game ended.

The draw makes Manchester City remains stuck in fifth position achieve standings with one point in three games left this season. While more difficult to shake Arsenal in third place despite the Premier League title chances have been closed.
