kite runner spark notes

With the increasing amount of CD duplication options
for equipment, its very important that you read the
reviews for the different types of equipment you
are considering before you make that final decision
and choose your model.

The best CD duplication equipment for your project
will all depend on the volume of CDs you plan to
duplicate at a time, and the amount of money that
you are planning to invest on a particular piece of

Your best source for reading reviews of CD duplication
equipment is on the Internet. There are many
different consumer websites out there that will allow
users to post reviews of equipment, then rate them
on a five or ten point scale. Anytime you are
reading reviews, it's very important that you get
your information from a trusted and reliable source.

Websites that are up by the owner of the product, or
those that are trying to sell you specific hardware
normally aren't the best to turn to when you need to
read a review. No one who is trying to get you to
buy a certain piece of hardware is going to tell
you about the flaws the equipment has, or even let
you know about a competitor who has a similiar item
for sale at half the price.

All across the internet, you can find many different
websites that offer the information you seek. There
are several that offer forums, where other users
will tell you honest opinions and give you feedback
about the equipment they own. This can be a great
way to find out about the duplication equipment
your interested in and what else is available for
you to purchase.

Another excellent place to look for CD duplication
equipment reviews is trade magazines and even
electronic magazines. Magazines will normally test
equipment then share their their opinions with their
readers. Always be sure when you are reading a
review that it's an article sponsored by the
magazine and not a paid advertisement.

CD duplication reviews of equipment are a great
resource when trying to find a piece of equipment
to use. With so many on the market, its always
good to have resources when you need to make
an important decision. A review will also tell you
everything the label and description of the
product leaves out, which can help to ensure you
get the best piece of duplication equipment for
your hard earned money.

Kiteboards Information and Learn about Wakeboarding

. Sunday, June 14, 2009

Kiteboards- A Fundamental Tool For All Kiteboarding Enthusiasts

What is kiteboarding all about? Simply put, you fly a specifically designed kite and let it propel you as you use kiteboards to surf the water. There is no need for any motor boat or any other artificial wake. You simply let the kite do the propulsion for you and simply use the power to move over the water.

Kiteboards are specifically designed boards made out of wood, foam or, as is the recent trend, composite fiber glass. There are many factors to be considered when opting for kiteboards. Some of them are listed below:

a. Length of the board

The length of the board is one of the most important factors to be considered when purchasing kiteboards. The most parameter to be considered when purchasing the kiteboard is weight of the individual. If you weigh more than the average individual, you should opt for a board in excess of 150 cm in length. Further, if you are just beginning to participate in this sport, then you should opt for a longer board. The board will be slightly difficult to maneuver. This will prevent you from going out of control even by mistake. Experienced surfers should opt for kiteboards less than 140 cm in length. This makes it very easy for the surfer to control the board and even perform tricks if needed. The lightest kiteboards are best for really advanced tricks like spins and inverted tricks.

b. Width of the board

Kiteboards for experts are short in length but more in width. This makes the ride very smooth and also helps the individual control the board better. If you weigh a lot, a shorted but wider kiteboard will serve you well.

c. Rocker

Kiteboards with low rockers are very stable and facilitate easier acceleration and better control. On the other hand, a higher and sharp rocker will make it easier for the individual to perform tricks and stunts.

d. Edge of the kiteboards

The edge is called the rail. Sharp rails make it easier for the individual to accelerate quickly. This helps the board grip the water better and this has a huge impact on the performance of the kiteboard.

e. Safety

Safety has become a very important issue for kiteboards. People often lose control of kites and land on other individuals or even on hard places thereby injuring others or themselves. To enhance safety, the bottom of the board is made as flat as possible. The recent trend is to design the bottoms with a concave shape to make it stick to the water and give additional traction to the rider.

f. Bindings

These boards too have bindings like wakeboards. However, there are three types of bindings which include foot straps, plates and boots. The foot strap merely straps your foot to the board. This is a cost effective solution but is not the most comfortable option. Plates are footpads combined with foot straps. Boards that integrate this option are more comfortable than those that offer foot straps. On the other hand, boots, just like wakeboards, are perfect as far as comfort is concerned. However, you will find it very difficult to get it off in an emergency.

Spicing Up Your Relationship

. Friday, June 5, 2009

by Ron Zvagelsky

Recognizing that your relationship has dulled is heart breaking. Luckily there are many fun and exciting ways to spice things up again. Most of the time, the reason the spark has gone out is because things have become mundane or routine. The fastest way to rekindle that flame is to change things around and break that routine.

If you and your partner are accustomed to having sex at the same time of the day or at a certain day of the week, chances are that you have started to think of sex as a chore or something to schedule. Simply having sex at a different time of the day can spice things up. Changing your position can also raise your couple temperature. Purchase a book with illustrations of new ways to connect. Look at the book together and once the giggles have subsided get creative.

While you are having your spontaneous sex consider using a mirror as a prop. Position a large mirror so that you both can watch. Humans respond to what they can see and watching each other in a mirror can really heat some things up. If your shyness or vanity makes you one of the types that can't do it with the lights on, try positioning some scented candles around the mirror. The soft glow will only add to the ambiance and heighten the passion.

Other things to try involve creativity and fun. Start your evening with an innocent board game, but change the rules. For each point earned in the game a kiss is exchanged or an article of clothing is removed. Soon the game will be long forgotten and you will be finding new ways to score. Writing each other love notes is another way to heat things up. Place the notes inside a suit pocket or briefcase. Maybe you can allude to what you will do when you see each other again. The anticipation of a romantic night alone is an amazing aphrodisiac.

Plan a romantic date for your special loved one. Remember how hot things were when you first met and try to recapture some of that energy. Sex experts also highly praise spending a night in a hotel. The change of scenery without the distractions of our daily life can relax us. If booking a hotel is out of the question try taking sex out of the bedroom. There is no reason why an exciting time can't be had in the rest of your house.

Creating your first Mind Map


by Rose Angell

In this article I am going to help you through the simple instructions on creating your first mind map. Firstly you decide on the topic in question, it is important to remember that there is no limit to what you can mind map, ranging from university lecture notes, preparing a speech/presentation or simply in organising a party. In this case we are going to mind map going on holiday. The process of mind mapping can be split into 3 levels.

Take a sheet of plain paper and some coloured pens. Turn the page so it is in landscape position. In the centre of the page draw an image that personally represents being on holiday for you. Now label this image e.g. the destination of your holiday or simply 'my holiday'. Always start in the middle of the page as this gives your thoughts freedom to spread out in all directions and for your brain to express its self more naturally and without being maintained in the boundaries found in linear note making.

The next step entails thick colourful branches radiating out from the central holiday image. These branches will represent your main stream of thoughts. There is no limit to the number of main branches but the recommendation is approximately five or six. On each branch clearly state in bold colourful capitals your main thoughts using a single key word. Use your imagination. It is important to use colours as they are exciting to your brain; they add energy to your mind map and enhance your creative thinking. To get your thought flowing you may need to ask yourself a few questions i.e. taking our example of holidays you may ask 'where will I be going' therefore you may decide that 'DESTINATION' is an appropriate 'key word' label for your first branch. In this example mind map will label are branches with the key terms 'Budget', 'booking', 'type', 'equipment', 'clothes', and 'shutdown'. The two main principles that make mind mapping so effective are imagination and association. The brains thinking processes is naturally image filled so in order to incorporate this natural process it is important to include images and pictures on your mind map as 'a picture is worth a thousand words'. Not only will it save you time in comparison to note taking but it is also easier to remember as they are interesting and help to keep your mind focused on the task.

Finally, use association to expand your mind map to the final stage. Look at the key words on the main branches to achieve this. These key words should spark of further ideas. Draw smaller branches that stem from the key words to accommodate the associations you make. The number of sub-branches is limitless, it is dependent upon the number of ideas that you can think of. For example the sub-branches of 'budget' may be 'currency', 'overall' and 'daily'. The sub-branch may then trigger mores thought and ideas associated with the key word of that branch leading to the development of the next level of sub-branches. Continue this process until all your thoughts and ideas are on your mind map. File the map safely so you can return to it in the future, adding more thought and ideas to it as they come to you or simply so you can use it as a revision or study tool.

At the end of the task you should have successfully produced a map that represents your thoughts in an organised, creative and effective way.

Article Writing - Crack the Creative Nut with Journaling


by Jerret Turner

Think journaling is old fashioned? Think again. Are you having a hard time getting started on your article writing? Combine writers block with journaling to spark your article writing frenzy.

Journaling is a powerful tool for brainstorming ideas, keeping your writing skills sharp, and for storing ideas and notes for future article pieces. To make the most of your journal, I suggest the following 4 tips to all article writers, beginning through advanced.

1) Get the right tools. I love shopping for writing notebooks because there's such a wide variety available today. Looking for a journal with flowers and other fancy designs? Try Barnes and Noble or Borders bookstores. Wal-Mart and office supply stores sell functional albeit less expensive journals. Make sure it feels good in your hands. Too small and you'll breeze through the pages too quickly. Too bulky and you won't take it with you for fear someone might snicker.

And, don't forget your writing utensil. Your pen options are either rollerball or gel. I use a 0.38 Uniball pen. I've only been able to find them in OfficeMax. I adore the fine point but they do tend to run out of ink faster than other pens. Use what you like best. If you hate to smear ink, or are clumsy like me and get gel all over you hands, shirt, and pants then stick with a ball point. Or, better yet, get a pencil. I don't use pencils because I tend to erase too much.

2) Make it a habit. This goes without saying. If you want to be successful at journaling, you have to journal. Pick a time and spot where you can write everyday. Then just do it. Stay away from your computer so you won't be distracted by everyday business.

3) Fire your inner critic. I used to think that all writing should be critiqued, reviewed, and revised. Once I let go of my inner critic, I began to enjoy journaling. Many times I pen random thoughts that would have been lost otherwise. Journaling should be inspirational, not drudgery. For those of you who are perfectionists, this step will be harder to master. Don't write on your computer. When you see the autocorrect marks lighting up your screen, you'll be tempted to make corrections. It's less tempting to use paper and pen.

4) Use your journal for article food. Can't think of anything to write? Flip through older journal entries. I guarantee it won't take but a few minutes to find and idea or inspiration to get started. I purposely review journal entries to find new article ideas.

Journaling is an exercise to help you let go of yourself and break through any writer's block. The important point to remember is that there is no wrong way to journal. Try to journal at least once a day. Don't think you have anything to journal about? Write down your daily to do list. Sometimes just getting something on paper will get your mind working. You never know until you try. Have fun, enjoy the time, and get writing! is a full service article marketing and link building firm.
