  • Food – Preparing and Storing It – A Few Handy Tips
    [Food-and-Drink:Cooking-Tips] In these days of advanced awareness of the shortages in the world and the recent economic problems in the whole world, but especially in the rich Western countries, which are the powerhouses of most Third World countries’ development, people are more aware of waste. It is a sin again to waste food, like it was 50 years ago.
  • Preparing Food – A Few More Tips
    [Food-and-Drink:Cooking-Tips] In these days of fast food and pre-cooked meals, people have largely forgotten how to prepare food or at least treat food wit the respect it deserves and these days, preparing food properly is more important than ever. Why? Because it seems that farmers have lost respect for the animals that make them a living.
  • Financial Statements
    [Business:Accounting] Financial statements are unlike day to day accounting records, because they give a bigger picture. They do not tell you whether you made a profit yesterday or whether that line of Teddy Bears made you 20%, but they will tell you whether your business is heading in the right direction or not.
  • Mathematics – Important Dates Before Christ
    [Reference-and-Education:Science] Mathematics is one of those subjects that you either love or you hat, is it not? Unfortunately, most people say that they hate it.

I venture to guess that everyone uses mathematics every hour of every day that they are awake.
  • Gardening – A Few Tips to Keep the Place Looking Good
    [Home-and-Family:Gardening] Gardening is a great hobby for both the young and the old alike. It is good for the older person, because it gives a reason to stay active in retirement and maintains the value of your property should you wish to sell it and move on somewhere else later.

  • Classifying Human Beings
    [Reference-and-Education:Science] The scientific study of living creatures seems to have begun with Aristotle, although early man probably experimented with breeding dogs for speed or size 16,000 years ago. In the 17th century, biology came to include the then known life sciences of zoology (the study of animals), botany (the study of plants) and taxonomy (the classification of living things).
  • Business Financial Records
    [Business:Accounting] The maintenance of good financial records is a necessary part of carrying on a legitimate business. Increased regulation means that more and more records have to be maintained, but a good business person would keep such records for himself whether the government requires it or not.
  • Creating Meaningful Financial Records
    [Business:Accounting] Given that the government requires every business to provide legible financial accounts for their business activities and also that a manager/owner cannot possibly know where his business is or how it is doing without them, it is vital to prepare and maintain decent, traditional financial records according to a recognized system such as the double-entry book-keeping method. In a typical double-entry book-keeping system, a transaction enters your system in (one of) the journal(s), which are also called the books of original entry. These entries are simply chronological entries of any transaction.
  • Corporations Or Limited Companies
    [Legal:Corporations-LLC] This article will concentrate on corporations. A corporation differs from other legal forms of business in that the law considers it to be an artificial legal being, possessing the same rights and responsibilities of an actual person. It has an existence separate from its owners and as such can sue and be sued, own property, agree to contracts, and engage in business. Additionally, because it is a legal, separate entity, it can continue to exist even after a change of owners.
  • Sole Proprietorship
    [Business:Solo-Professionals] It is very important to the future of your business to choose the correct legal entity for it from the very beginning. This is because the type of legal entity you select, affects the decision-making process, your legal responsibilities and your ability to raise finance.
  • Mathematics – An Introduction
    [Reference-and-Education] It is noticeable that a disproportionate number of ‘celebrities’ like to say in public, on TV or wherever, that they are ‘hopeless at maths’. What could be the reason for this? Is it because they consider the public to be stupid and they want to appear to be one of the gang? Or are they genuinely less intelligent than the average Joe? Whatever the answer is, I wish that they would keep that information to themselves, because it gives school children a reason for giving up on the subject to.
  • Structuring Your Business
    [Business:Small-Business] The type of legal formation you select for your business can have a most important influence on the success or failure of your undertaking.

  • Astronomy – An Introduction
    [Reference-and-Education:Astronomy] Although astronomy is the oldest science, it continues to be at the forefront of not only scientific thought, but that of the public at large too.

  • Astronomy – Important Dates Before Christ
    [Reference-and-Education:Science] There is no doubt that astronomy is the oldest science and there is also no doubt that astronomy was being studied by everyone, not only the wisemen, thousands and thousands of years ago.

  • Gardening – Another Five Tips
    [Home-and-Family:Gardening] A garden is a great place for people of all ages. I think that it is important for children to become interested in the garden from an early age so that they will know something about flowers, insects and soil, even if their school and working lives leave them too busy in later years to take advantage of a garden. An academic child will get precious little time to spend outside when he or she is in school and few adults in their twenties, thirties and forties can find the time. Childhood memories of a garden will be useful then.

These goals should relate to the accomplishment of the various tasks related to the formation and operation of your own business.
  • Business – Which Premise Shall I Choose Exactly?
    [Business:Entrepreneurialism] So, you have your business idea, business plan and you know which community you want to work and live in. You have come long way from those early days when running your own business was a pipe dream. However, you still need to house your business, do you not? I shall assume for the purposes of this article that you have chosen a to, let us say a busy high street to call home.
  • Business – Where Do You Put It? (Part Two)
    [Business:Entrepreneurialism] In this first part of this article, I talked about where you should establish your business. I gave the three most important considerations for your decision, because as estate agents say, it all depends on location, location, location. I pointed out in that article that you should ask yourself these three key questions.
  • Business – Where Should I Locate it Exactly?
    [Business:Entrepreneurialism] Once you have decided what you want to sell you have to decide which community is the best for your business and yourself. This general decision is reached by considering the population and the environment of where you think it would be good. You can best come to a decision by asking yourself four basic questions such as…
  • Business Premises – The Layout
    [Business] So, you are all set and raring to go, but you know you have to do something about the premises first. Good, you should be thinking along those lines, because once you stock up it will be too late to call the builders and the decorators in for at least a year or so. Therefore, it is time to make sure that your building is ‘fit for purpose’, before you redecorate.

    [Business:Entrepreneurialism] So, you have your business idea, your business plan and everything else is in place, but you do not have a place to put it. That will be your next problem and it is a question that has vexed nearly every entrepreneur before you to. There is no point belittling the fact that location can make or break a business. As the estate agents say: location, location, location. In fact, the problem is so big that you can not afford to leave it to the whimsy of your personal choice. Big business realizes that and a supermarket looking for new premises can take years agonizing over the decision.
  • Business – Which One is Best For You?

Have you already tried and failed or are you on the verge of starting your own business and wondering whether you have the ability to succeed or not?

    [Food-and-Drink:Cooking-Tips] Cooking was traditionally ‘women’s work’ and still is in many countries.

I now live in a traditional Thai village in northern Thailand. In that village, women take care of the kids if they have any otherwise they work in the fields along side their menfolk.

    [Travel-and-Leisure:Destination-Tips] I was very happy when we pulled away from Don Muang airport. I had got over the first obstacle – that of getting a taxi to Pattaya without being ripped off. I sat in the back, which I was asked to do, although in Europe, I typically have a preference to sit up front with the driver for a conversation if I’m travelling alone. Anyway, I sat in the back and looked around me; I soon guessed that the driver did not understand English. I did not have a difficulty with that and settled down to look at the barren scenery in silence.

    [Travel-and-Leisure] A lot of us do a lot more travelling than our parents’ generation ever did and although it is probably quicker to get anywhere these days, I don’t think it is as comfortable as it used to be.

  • 5 Tips on Buying Presents
    [Shopping-and-Product-Reviews:Gifts] It is said that everyone like to receive presents, I am not convinced about that one. I am never sure how to react when I receive a present and I have met one or two others over the course of my life who would rather not be given anything either. Then there is the other maxim, that it is better to give that to receive. I am sure that this must be true, but I go through agonies every year trying to buy presents that will ‘fit’ the recipient mentally and so not disappoint. On the whole, I could do without giving and receiving, but I know that that is considered mean, which I am not. Maybe, I just never learned how to accept a gift graciously.

Out of the way sparcely-populated places in huge countries like the USA, Canada and Australia still have to rely on home schooling to a large extent, although it is easier now with the popularization of radio, television and the Internet.

Snakes are even to be found in towns, although it is only the friendlier ones that tend to survive human wrath.
