Unemployment is holding at a steady nine and a half percent. Everyone is concerned with losing their job as many companies have to focus on who to let go and what consequences it may bring. It is across the board with all sizes of companies and their employees. Some will simply focus on little things to give them the excuse to let someone go. No doubt you want to avoid being the one. What follows are some tips on how to avoid the most used reasons so you can avoid falling off the boat during this economic tidal wave.
Avoid Getting Caught Up in the Politics
Every organization (corporate and small) has politics. It is those issues that control the flow and discourse that are all part of peoples’ power and comfort zones. It is quite possible to win the battle and still lose the job. Often these situations occur through petty arguments that reach those that are making the decisions. Allowing yourself to be pulled into debates, rather than doing the job you are there to do, can definitely make this happen and in the end you could lose. Avoid the gossip and just do the best job you can. Doing this, and delivering results that are expected, is a good way to avoid the debates.
If you are looking to make some home improvements then there will be a number of things that you will have to consider before you set out with any project.

As such, here are some tips to consider when making any home improvement.
To “show off” is something lots of people want to do when they go out, or at least that’s what they want to achieve… In various areas in Paris I get amazed of how people, over and over again, put so much effort and time into how they look, either in order to look as the current display window, or fashion magazine, like everyone else dresses… or THE ACTUAL OPPOSITE. Yep, that does exist to, you know the ones who just needs to be seen. This can of course be quite impressive, considering certain outfits…but what I really don’t understand is when people get blinded by the trends... I don’t know, I don’t see any logic thoughts whatsoever behind the ones who automatically adapt themselves after every single trend… Are their personal tastes and styles always 100% accurate with what we see in media, influencing us to buy, and to buy more and more….? Don’t know, a mystery to me…
Talking trends and inspiration for new ideas, I thought I could share with you my new collection, womenswear fall/winter -11.
My inspiration and theme is “hidden”, a collection built on the human needs of sometimes just hiding… “Trapped or just hiding?”…was kind of the ideas around this collection… Maybe in order to be comfortable one must be able to hide sometimes, or at least be able to adapt the garments to choose what to show and what to hide…
As result to this, you’ll see several examples of high collars (to cover up), even a loose one to wear as an accessory, on top of another garment. There are two kinds of “undie” dresses that can be combined with all of the tops of the collection. I call them “undies” because they’re not really meant to be worn all alone, but underneath as a basic layer, in order to feel comfortable to wear for example a really deep cut top, that falls over the shoulders. And when you wear them you feel as if you were wearing a “body pantyhose” that holds in and gives support.
Skirts and dresses, blouses and shirts are getting buttoned up! There’s a big focus on having lots of small, often fabric covered, buttons. This will be seen on both front and back parts of garments. One thing that’s once again is a big hit is the classic pencil skirt, but buttoned all the way up and/or all the way down! This means small tiny buttons, put closely together, and all of these buttons will of course make the garment adaptable if you feel like showing a bit of your legs or not (buttoning up or down…)
I don’t know if you’ve noticed the super large belts (almost like a corset but with no support for the bust, only for the waist) The belts are often put on top of blouses, dresses and tunique-like garments, in order to put focus on the waist. Some of these “corset-belts” have buckles in metal, or laces, but I recently saw one with these small types of buttons instead.
And what I’m trying to say is that the style of the belt is soon being transferred to the skirts, especially the pencils skirts! I try not to forget to look on the back of clothes, sometimes the back is far more beautiful than the front, thanks to these kinds of details. It’s very elegant to have a longer dress, or skirt (in a tailored style) with small small buttons going vertically all the way up to the neck!
Back to the pencil skirt, buttons or not, imagine it with a thin, sheer, “fluffy” blouse hanging out a bit but tucked inside of the skirt. Big generous sleeves, and maybe an oversized collar, worn with this little skirt, so tight and minimalistic.
How can we achieve well being and stay balanced during times of stress? Is there a way of remaining calm and not falling victim to the world around us? Can we escape depression, fear and other negative feelings that so easily befall so many today? As our world around us becomes increasingly unstable how can we remain calm? Can we allow ourselves to not become a victim of the circumstances we find ourselves in and remain calm through these times? Is there some type of steps we can take to help us practice staying calm?
There may become a time when things get so out of control that the best thing you can do for yourself and others is to remain calm. Fear and depression may take hold of many around you, but do not let it take hold of you. Merely knowing that those emotions will hinder you, and could cause you to make bad decisions should get you a reason to focus and remain calm. Learning to remain calm during times that are not extremely bad will also help you when and if times ever do.

There is a lot of research currently being conducted concerning pheromones and the role they play in human behavior. It has long been established that many insects, birds and animals are equipped with pheromones to excite or alter a specific behavior due to the scent emitted by the chemicals. For example, ants have been shown to use a natural chemical to mark the path between a food source and their nest for them and others to follow when returning with food.
To have the skin mole removal you can select several different procedures. Usually the surgeon inspects the mole and offers suggestions about the best method to use. Frequently the surgeon requests that you have a skin specialist check the mole first to make sure it’s not cancerous. Most moles aren’t but it’s always a good precaution.
The 1st method of skin mole removal is to surgically cut the mole from the skin. The surgeon will cut around the border so that the mole will not be able to grow back. If the mole is a deep cut then the stitches will be on the inside of the skin. If the mole is smaller then they will most often be on the outside of the skin.
