    Climate modification is a multi-faceted and complex subject. In this article, we take a look at the relationship between climate modification and volcanoes.

    Climate Modification and Volcanoes

    The climate modification debate is a nasty one. Parties pick their positions, dig in and refuse to listen to the rants of the other side. Lost in the yelling is the simple fact that climate modification is a natural phenomenon to some extent. For proof, we need merely look at the materials kicked out by volcanoes.

    It is an undeniable fact of the earth record that volcanoes have changed the climate during certain periods. Small explosions don’t have much impact, but large explosions send massive amounts of material and gases into the atmosphere. The gases include carbon dioxide, the ultimate bugaboo greenhouse gas. Beyond these gases, however, volcanoes can kick out so much debris and ash that the material in the atmosphere can actually block out the sun or reduce the warming effect.

    Mount St. Helens is the most studied and well known recent eruption. Unless you have been meditating in a cave for the last 20 years, you know that the volcano exploded on May 18, 1980. The eruption was powerful enough to flatten everything for 17 miles, immediately turning 10 million trees into so much firewood. The huge volcanic ash cloud stretched halfway across the United States, but barely had an impact on global temperatures.

    In contrast, the eruption of the El Chichon volcano in 1982 had a measurable climate impact. El Chichon is located in Mexico and was a much smaller eruption than Mount St. Helens. Still, the average temperature around the globe cooled by one degree. What scientist learned is the climate modification impact of volcanoes is highly dependent on the type of explosion. The materials from Mount St. Helens fell out of the atmosphere quickly, while El Chichon belched enormous amounts of sulfur that remained in the atmosphere for much longer.

    One of the problems with climate modification is it occurs over a relatively long period of time. Since we started paying attention to the situation, we have not had a chance to see the impact of a major eruption. The stuff we see on television is really small potatoes compared to historically eruptions of note. For example, Mount St. Helens threw roughly a half a cubic mile of material into the air. In 1815, a volcano in Indonesia belched 24 cubic miles of material into the atmosphere. Obviously, one has to imagine it impacted the climate of the earth.

    Is there a relationship between climate modification and volcanoes? Undoubtedly. From what we see, however, the relationship is generally of a short duration and not an explanation for the rising temperatures we are seeing currently.

    A weighing scale performs a crucial function in a commercial transaction. It is the pivot about which trust in businesses is leveraged worldwide. It would be slow and painful if worldwide people could not trust one another and still had to do business together. Therefore the businesses worldwide need to trust another when it comes to measuring the weight. But the best policy is to trust but verify and for that we need to have reliable weighing equipment. The administration recognizes the need for the trust to be maintained in a verifiable manner so that businesses can operate smoothly and efficiently confident that the trust reposed by them is justified.

    And for the trust to be justified the equipment used to measure the weight has to be accurate, reliable and durable. And for such a sensitive operation as the measurement of weight it cannot be left to the manufacturers alone to assure the quality. It is for this reason that the government takes it up itself to certify the quality of legal for trade scales. With the advent of digital scales the accuracy and ease of use of weighing scales has improved a lot. And when you buy a legal for trade digital scale you assure yourself of convenience and quality.

A legal for trade scale can be expected to cost more than a similar scale which is not certified but that premium is well worth it because you can be sure to have an accurate scale that is able to perform reliably and does so for a long time.

    I was in a bank last week waiting to pay in a cheque while the 3 cashiers attended the queue of about 10 people; so 20 minutes after looking around at all the usual 0 per cent credit card offers and low rate loans, I was surprised when the cashier asked me if I had one of their ‘new’ current accounts.

    ‘New’ I thought; I’d only started banking with them in the last 8 months, how could I have an old current account!? “Oh yes” said the cashier, “we have new current accounts that offer travel insurance, mobile phone insurance and motor breakdown cover.” I thought I was in a Churchill car insurance advert for a minute!

    “Hhmmm, ‘new’ current account,” I thought – doesn’t this mean ‘monthly fee’ current account?? I like the way the current accounts that charge you on a monthly basis have all been named dramatically like the ‘Ultimate Reward’ or ‘Gold Rewards’ ‘Advantage’, ‘Premier’ etc, etc…But that’s all I like about them to be honest.

    All the benefits or ‘Rewards’ for your monthly fee seem to include ‘* Exclusions apply’ even to things like travel insurance. ‘Worldwide annual multi-trip travel insurance for you and your family’ – read the leaflet; but then a huge ‘* Exclusions apply – please refer to the terms and conditions.’ So you have to trawl through the thousands of ‘T’s & C’s’ to make sure you don’t fall into any of the exclusions! Who honestly bothers to read absolutely everything?

    I would guess that the level of insurance and motor breakdown cover you’d get with a current account doesn’t compare to the level of cover you’d receive if you bought the same mobile phone insurance, travel insurance, or motor breakdown cover as separate policies. But then again I might be wrong…

    In any case I’m ceratinly not going to start paying for a banking service that I can get absolutely free without all the gimmicks of ‘freebies’ – You get nothing for free and that’s certainly the case here because you’re paying a monthly fee, so how can it be free?! One day I might take the time to actually read through all the insurance cover terms to see exactly what you get for your money I bet it’s not that much!

    One of the great aspects of having an online business is supposed to be that you can work from home, make your own hours, work in your PJ’s and build a business of your dreams while enjoying your leisure, your family, your life. Right?

    SCREECH! What happened, then?

    Are you afraid to get started?
    Are you avoiding the things that you know will push you to the next step?
    Are you stuck behind your computer, alone and overwhelmed?
    Are you getting lost in cyber space, surfing and not building?
    Are you avoiding engaging in activity, often not leaving your home office for a day or two…
    … and leisure, what’s that?

    I call it the Online Entrepreneur Rut. This rut can leave you feeling down, lacking energy, lost, alone, and have you questioning your reasons for wanting to start this business in the first place.

    Here are Some Simple Ways to Ensure Success:

    Reach out to build or find your community, your village, your tribe.Networking both online and offline is a vital an important part of your growth.

    Surround yourself with the support of others that you can share successes with. It can be challenging to get out there and share your frustrations with another. However, most often, the case is that the person you are speaking to is currently or has had a similar situation, and ill be glad to give you thoughts and ideas based on their experience.

    Step away from it all. Really, shut down the computer, turn off the technology and get away from it all. Try going for a workout, walk in nature, listen your music to get your creative juices flowing and your energy soaring.

    Do something to re-connect to your inner dreams and goals. Do you meditate, read, journal? What will help you be re-inspired and remember why you began this journey to start with?

    Attend various networking meetings, business trainings, weekend events. Building relationships is key to success. Enjoy a few in person meetings over coffee for a much needed break.

    Call on people you trust to bounce off ideas, frustrations, and fears. I love the Buddy – System! Work with your friends and colleagues to keep accountability and get trusted feedback.

    Check in with your Coach or Mentor. Working with a coach will catapult your progress. If you don’t have one, consider doing so.

    These efforts can help make your experience as an Online Entrepreneur a rich, fulfilled and satisfying one. You may have an opportunity to gain vast knowledge, feedback, and creative ideas. These key ingredients assist your business to flourish more quickly and smoothly. In my six years full-time with my online business, I’ve used these methods to build some wonderful relationships and alliances with experts that are just plain good people. I am now grateful to have trusted colleagues and to call many of them my friends.

    Go ahead, give it a few of them a try. You are likely to feel much better after you do.

    Once a homeowner is behind on their mortgage payment, they can expect a lot of harassing calls from their bank. Unfortunately, that isnt the worst of it.

    The difficult part for the homeowner is that once you get more than 30 days late the bank requires full payment of all monies in arrears. So lets say a person hasnt made a payment for a couple of months and you manage to scrape together the 2 months mortgage payments of $4,000 and you call your bank to let them know the good news. But what you hear is the bank saying “Hey you know that $2,000 monthly mortgage and you know how you owe us 2 months worth of payments, right? Well you actually owe us $4,500 because youre two payments late and were not going to accept anything less than full payment on all monies that are past due. Oh, and by the way there are some penalties and fees and things were going to add onto that, so thats why you need to send us $4,500 to get back in our good graces. If you dont send us this amount, were going to go forward with foreclosure proceedings and take your home from you.”

    And rightly so, that freaks people out. Most families typically cant come up with two or three or four times their monthly payment in one lump sum. If they try to send monies in that are anything less than that full lump sum amount, the bank will usually, quite literally, send the person the check back. If the person says, “Hey all I can do is come up with one month payment. Ill send you the $2,000 plus fees, so Im going to send you $2,400.” and they send in the check and the bank is more than likely not going to cash it and they will send it back to the homeowner.

    With the banks refusing to take partial payments the bank will then often proceed into the next stage of the foreclosure process. Typically after 3 or 4 months that have gone by without a payment, the bank at that point is going to legally file against the homeowner and submit a legal document to the homeowners county recorders office. The document is what is called a Notice of Default (NOD). This takes the homeowner one big step closer to losing their home.

    These days wherever you turn it is hard to avoid hearing people talk about the financial crisis and its implications. Almost all news items contain some links to it, and within employment issues the consequences are still very much felt. But has the recession had any impact on the way job seekers perceive working within banking or finance roles?

    Despite the crisis people still seem to be very keen to work within banking or finance. Amongst the majority of the population it is safe to say that the reputation of banks has taken a hit, but amongst job seekers working for a bank or a financial institution remains very much desirable. Jobs for these companies are considered to be very prestigious as they still have the best technologies, the best systems and the best rewards compared to other sectors. Because of this the highest achievers still look to work for banks or financial institutions.

    What else attracts people to work in finance or banking roles? Relative to other sectors these types of roles tend to have more responsibility and involve a lot of problem solving skills. Besides that they get a chance to work with people, there are opportunities to travel and to go out for meetings, and these roles also tend to offer possibilities for fast advancement. All these factors combined make these roles very challenging and interesting for the highest achievers.

    So what has changed within the banking and finance sector? There seems to be a change in the expectations of employees that broadly run along the line of the generations. You could say that the employee profile is slowly evolving from what is called -Generation X’ to -Generation Y’. Within these generations the expectations they have of their employers are very different. Generation X will want to know -What is in it for me’, while Generation Y expects great workplace flexibility as well as wanting extremely fast progression and are less willing to work their way up slowly.

    The profile of employees within the banking and finance sectors is changing, however this is due to a change in mentality that runs alongside the generations more than being caused by the financial crisis.
