Rebounding Exercises – Cheap and Easy

Rebounding – basically bouncing on a mini-trampoline – may be one of the easiest and most convenient ways to exercise. Men, women and children of varying degrees of athletic ability will benefit from using a mini-trampoline … a rebounder. No matter the specific conditions or goals of the exerciser, rebounding exercises add tremendous value to any fitness routine. There are numerous physical and mental rewards, but here are a few key benefits of rebounding:

  • Boosts immune system – Promotes lymph movement, which helps eliminate antigens, toxins and viruses … which causes future illness. We'll talk more about lymph down the road!
  • Burns fat efficiently by targeting the lymph system which removes toxins, and the fewer toxins you have, the faster your body will let go of fat cells.
  • Slows the aging process – Improves mental performance. People who rebound find that they are able to work longer, sleep better, and feel less tense and nervous.

A couple simple reasons that rebounding is reliably easy to incorporate in your life are:

  • Affordability – compared to most gym memberships, a rebounder is a solid investment (sold on Amazon for approximately $ 100) that will garner returns for years to come.
  • Stores easily – folds up compactly and some can slip into their own carry bag. No more unsightly treadmills hogging up space.
  • Convenience – Also, rebounding is easily integrated into any hectic lifestyle. Whether it's a 5-minute energy boost or a complete 75-minute workout, rebounding can be customized to anyone's needs and schedule.

Now, I enjoy doing my rebounding exercises while I catch up on American Idol. This is a genius solution to my "couch potato problem". It's never been my intention to sit on my butt for an evening evening, but … it happens. I know … It's so unhealthy! Lack of movement creates stagnation in the body and adds stress. We are mean to move, and we feel so much better when we do.

And now, a poem about rebounding …

I used to sit on the couch all night … despite what I knew to be right. Now, every time I watch TV … I pledge to take care of me. Nice and cheap and convenient too, using a rebounder is easy to do!

Okay that was obnoxious, but I mean every word. One last thing to note: Remember how fun it was to have someone bounce you on their knee when you were a kid? Well, this probably has not been officially tested, but I will suggest to you that rebounding is a similar fun experience. Rebounding exercises add pep to your step, rosiness to your shoulders and can make you feel like a kid all over again: buoyant, energetic and youthful … That's definitely worth a hundo.

How to Start Planning a European Trip on a Budget

You can approach the planning of a trip in a number of ways. For me I narrow it down to where I badly want to go and then figure out how much it will cost. From here I can add or subtract locations or side trips. As I'm currently beginning to plan a trip to Europe I thought I might walk through the process and demonstrate at least how I begin to put a trip together. Do be aware that the costs listed below are from internet searches I performed on January 30th 2008 and should be understood to be samples of potential prices only.

Recently my Dad (who has never been to Europe) asked me to go with him and show him around at the end of April. After prodding for specifics his only request was that it be Italy, Spain or Germany. With only about 10 days to spend overseas I decided against Germany. Although Germany is probably my favorite country in Europe, Italy or Spain can really give the first time traveler to Europe a sense of being in Europe in a small amount of time. In Italy you have the normal circuit of Rome, Florence and Venice all within relatively close proximity to each other, making for easy and quick train travel. In Spain, my favorite cites Barcelona, ​​Girona, Granada, Seville and Madrid, are likewise relatively close and inexpensive. Personally, there is so much about Germany I love which is at different ends of the country a quick 7-10 day trip would not be enough time.

With my location dragged down and a trip duration in mind I begin with the most important part of a trip to Europe, the flight. Using I start by plugging in the major airports I would like to fly in and out of. Since we want to go to Italy we can start with (for simplicity wounds) New York to Rome with flexible dates during the time frame I can get off work. Of course you will want to plug in the nearest international airport to you. Searching within the last week of April through the first week in May I found the cheapest flight to be: NYC- to – Rome from the 29th through the 9th = $ 756 With this as my working number for ticket prices I look into other possible cities to fly into for cheaper tickets NYC – to – Florence from the 29th through the 13th = $ 956 —- nope NYC- to – Venice from the 26th through the 10th = $ 850 —- nope NYC- to – Milan from the 25th through the 9th = $ 852 —- nope Not finding anything cheaper I then start thinking about flying into one city and flying out of another. This has the benefit of saving the time (which is limited) of backtracking as well as the cost of an extra train ticket back. Since my working plan is to fly into Rome and visit Venice last I check these two cities on the dates of the cheapest flight above. NYC- to – Rome: Venice- to -NYC from the 29th through the 9th = $ 852

For $ 100 more I can eliminate 4-5 hours of travel as well as a train ticket that will cost at least $ 100 one way. So far this looks like a better deal. Just for the sake of argument then, why not check into what it would cost to throw in a wonderful Spanish city, Barcelona. My Dad wanted to see Spain and an over night ferry from Barcelona to a city near Rome is reliably fun and cheap when you will think about the cost you will be paying for accommodation anyways. NYC- to -Barcelona: Venice- to-NYC from the 29th through the 9th = $ 816

Well, we almost saved 40 bucks and get to see Barcelona. If we can get from Barcelona to Rome for around $ 40 we are actually making money (well not really but you get the idea). Sticking with the ferry idea for now a quick check of gives me: Barcelona -to – Civitavecchia (near Rome) (20 hours overnight) = $ 65 on Grimaldi Ferries Considering accommodation is going to be anywhere from $ 25- $ 35 in Rome or Barcelona and we saved $ 36 on the flight by going into Spain this sounds reasonable for a quick visit to Barcelona and does not cost us more at all. For even more savings we can try to fly from Barcelona to Rome but we must keep in mind that 1. It will not be an overnight flight so accommodation will be an issue again and 2. Budget airlines do not usually fly out of the major airports, making travel outside the city and issue. None-the-less checking clickair and ryanair for a few samples does not hurt. clickair has Barcelona- to – Rome (Fiumicino) on the 2nd = $ 29 (the 2nd though is a bit late) ryanair has Barcelona (Girona) – to – Rome (Ciampino) on the 1st = $ 20

All in all we now know that stopping in Barcelona is a great idea and getting to Rome will be cheap and easy. With our air plans figured out we can start to look at what this trip is going to cost us in ground transportation. I prefer trains over renting cars in Europe; I just can not relax in a car and the cost of gas and concentrating on the road usually outweighs the freedom. With that in mind it's time to figure out if buying point to point tickets is cheaper than buying a rail pass. My rough plan is to fly into Barcelona head to Rome (fly or sail) then go from Rome to Florence to Venice. Ill check the cost of point to point tickets between these cities as well as a few side trips to get a spread of costs using the worksheets at Rome- to -Florence (1-2 hours) = $ 65 Florence- to-Venice (2-3 hours) = $ 58 Rome- to -Pisa (3-4 hours) = $ 47 Pisa- to -Florence (1-2 hours) = $ 19 Florence- to-Rimini (1 hour) = $ 50 Rimini-to-Venice (1-2 hours) = $ 70 With these numbers we can see that our simplest trip, Rome, Florence, Venice, is going to cost roughly $ 123. Our most expensive plan, Rome, Pisa, Florence, Rimini and Venice is going to come in around $ 196. A quick look at rail pass prices shows us that we will only really benefit if we want to do the longer trip and then only barely. A four day rail pass (you can travel for any four days within two months) runs about $ 202. About the same as our long trip but also with an included 20% off discount on the ferry from Barcelona. The problem I see here is that traveling that much, especially since we are adding the city in Spain, is not going to give much time to see anything. At this point I'm going to opt to pay full price on the ferry and buy point to point tickets in Italy. Even adding Pisa on is only going to cost about $ 134 total.

To this point, assuming we throw in Pisa (a day trip) on our way to Florence and pay full price to take the ferry over from Spain we are looking to spend about $ 1015 to spend 10 days and see five cities in two countries in Europe. Its time now to figure in accommodation. A rule of thumb for me is to plan on spending a minimum of $ 50 a day for a bed and food. Sometimes this is high (not very) sometimes this is low (more and more each year). For the sake of demonstration however I looked up budget hotels and hostels for the locations I plan on visiting to get a rough idea of ​​what I will be spending. 30th April – Barcelona = $ 20- $ 35 1st May – Boat to Rome = already figured in 2nd-4th – Rome = $ 20 (camping) $ 30 (hostel) 5th-6th – Florence = $ 15- $ 25 7th-8th – Venice = $ 45

What we end up with is a range of $ 200- $ 265 that I need to budget for accommodation. Adding in food takes a bit of guess work but $ 15 dollars a day is a good workable number. If need be you could eat twice at a Mc Donalds and "live" or grab some bread and cheese from a grocery store and still have some left over for a couple slices of pizza or Doner Kebab. Of course if you are going to Italy for the food or wine you will have to plan on spending more money but $ 15 should get you by. Our final cost is going to be the sight seeing and extras (taking the metro, bottle of wine, train reservations). Since my Dad has never been there I will want to show him the Vatican museum, the Colosseum, Palatine Hill, The statue of David, la Sagrada Familia and a variety of other things. For a trip like we have planned above, in Italy for only 10 days, $ 150- $ 200 should be fine.

When all is said and done I can count on spending around $ 1365 – $ 1480 for the whole trip. This, as we have seen is rather bare bones so there is not a lot that can be cut if this were out of my budget (which it is very close to being). I could of course opt out of going to Pisa but extremely in terms of trains this only saves me $ 10 and that does not seem worth skipping a city I have never seen. What you will decide to cut (sometimes the duration you're overseas or how many cities you can see) will depend on what is important to you on this visit to Europe. What is important is that you find a way to fulfill your dream of traveling to your country of choice and I hope that this article helps you find a way to make it work with a limited budget.

Packing for a Ski Vacation

When going on a ski vacation, it can sometimes be difficult to know what to pack, but a bigger problem is that even if you know what to pack, it can be a tough problem figuring out to get everything from your home to your destination. Skis do not fit into suitcases, and the limited about of baggage that you've allowed, can be a huge problem if you're flying to the ski resort.

The simplest method to save on baggage space and weight is simply to take less. If there's a rental shop at your destination, and the rental fees for skis, boots and poles are reasonable, then, then why not rent? Provided of course that you do not mind skiing with rented equipment,

Another option is to find out if there are any ski shops in the resort area, and if they will buy used equipment. What you can then do is buy new equipment, use it, and then sell it when you're finished with it. Before you embark on this strategy, you'll want to get an estimate for how much you can sell the used equipment for, and by deducting this from the price of new equipment, you'll know how much this option will cost.

Another thing to consider is that the clothing that you'll wear on a ski vacation can be very bulky and tough to squeeze into a suitcase. Ski jackets, ski suits, Winter sweaters, etc., all take up a lot of space. There can be a way round this problem however: telephone the lodge or resort, and ask them whether they will hold a package that is going to be shipped to you, and hold it until you arrive. Most lodges and resorts will agree to this, and assuming they do, all you need to do is box up all your bulky ski clothes and ship them: you'll probably find that this costs less than paying the airline to handle excess baggage.

Your Budget Travel Guide

Have you always wanted to travel but feared the thought of spending beyond your means? Well, here is a piece of good news: travel need not be costly. Traveling is not the exclusive turf of those who can afford to pay their way way through anything. Whether you are an ordinary office employee, a student or a retiree, you have every right to enjoy the wonders of this world commensurate to your financial capacity. Be your own travel guide!

Deciding to be your own travel guide will help you find resourceful solutions to the endless expenses involved in traveling. Traveling is even more enjoyable when it is not heavy on your pocket. Cheap traveling is a practice that many people are yet to master. Many travelers have been duped by expensive travel guides and travel agents, not knowing that there are actually several ways to lessen the financial challenges.

Here are ways through which you can travel with minimal costs:

1. Find the Most Affordable Hostel

Hostels are reliably cheaper than hotels. Although structurally smaller and more cramped, they offer the same amenities and, at times, the same basic travel comforts as many hotels. If you are looking for free Wi-Fi connection, free breakfast and free airport transfers, most hostels offer these services, too. Others offer free laundry, staff-sponsored parties and a common room where guests can mingle and get to know each other.

The only things you have to put up with are space and, in certain hostels, hygiene. The trick is to do your research beforehand. Read reviews to know what previous guests think. You will have a clear idea of ​​which hostels to consider and which ones to avoid. Lastly, be on the lookout for promos. Hostels often offer discounts and other perks. A dormitory-type may be a lot cheaper, but if you want a cleaner and less topsy-turvy situation (particularly if you are female), then go for an all-girls dormitory. These rooms are usually less crowded and are more comfortable.

2. Walk More

Traveling on a budget means preparing to give up taxis or private cars. What most comfort travelers do not understand, however, is that they are actually spending more for transportation expenses than they are for food, lodging or souvenirs. Some taxi drivers take advantage of tourists, driving them in circles so that they will be forced to pay more than what is necessary. On one hand, if you use your feet more, not only will you be able to test and improve your sense of direction, you can also see and experience interesting spots inaccessible through regular transportation. If you are not sure where to go, then read through blogs, brochures or local magazines. They can serve as your portable travel guide.

3. Adopt a Flexible Itinerary

The worst that you can do to yourself while traveling is to be a stickler for rules. It is important to have an itinerary to keep things in order, but it is much more important to enjoy your trip and have a blast. Give a little room for unexpected adventures. Do not set your return date if you think you need more time to explore a place. Your itinerary may look great, but first-hand suggestions from locals and backpackers are the stuff that make traveling more exciting. Travel guide books and magazines may not have an inkling about these suggested spots, which are usually underrated, less crowded and far more beautiful than many tourist spots made famous by media mileage.

Spontaneity, experiencing culture, discovering uncharted territories and meeting new people – these are just a few reasons why we must travel. Stick to your budget and money will be the least of your consideration.

Vacation Time Selling

I have been in sales for a long time and one mistake I see many take is to follow the crowd and check out of the game during the various vacation seasons during the year. How many Holidays are there nowdays anyway? Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hannukah, Easter, Valentines Day, Memorial Day, Labor Day, MLK Day, and on and on. I understand the need to take breaks and spend time with our families and these are great times to do those things. These are also good times to get ahead while others are resting. The phones are not ringing off the hook in our prospect's offices. They are not inundated with meetings and other salespeople trying to grab their time. They are often in a more productive and open frame of mind. It is sometimes pretty easy to set appointments during this time because it sounds less threatening to their schedule to say "let's set up a time next week to get together".

Many times the gatekeepers are on vacation. How many people do you know that take the day off before or after an official holiday? If you have the opportunity to work during these periods of time, take advantage of this time to get in touch with those people that are historically tough to reach. Take advantage of your time with your families as well during the year, but if you are going to work, make the most of it and be aggressive. In the sales game, there are usually a few winners and mostly losers. The 80-20 rule is definitely alive and well in sales today. 20 percent of the people do 80 percent of the business.

The winners make things happen and usually work the hardest. The losers make an excuse for everything including sitting around doing nothing at every opportunity. "It's a slow time in our business – what's the point?" "It's Thanksgiving week so the whole week is shot ….. nobody works on Friday in the summer. The winners usually are the ones that keep their heads down and stay with their plan. The winners take vacations and refresh themselves occasionally, but when they are at work, they always go at it full speed.

These times that many are taking it easy are often the times that real decision makers are available. How do you think they got to be the boss in the first place? It is often because they were the ones that worked when everyone else was taking it easy and they still do it today. You may not catch everyone during these historically down times, but you may just catch some of the people that are the hardest to reach.

GPS Tracking For Service Vehicles

Efficiency in service businesses, which use vehicles, is very important, especially in the current period and paradigm of fuel prices and traffic congestion. Smart companies which need to prevent accidents, improve routing and avoid log-jams in the daily traffic are well advised to buy and install sophisticated GPS technologies for their vehicles.

There are many companies offering such technologies and one needs to do a little research to pick the one best for them. In my company currently we have a system we have designed which integrates GPS vehicles tracking with our scheduling and order systems software and we are quite pleased with the results.

A lot of thought went into our system and since so many other companies need this too, it seems we should be generous and offer this information to other service companies. Here is some information to think on.

I sincerely hope this information is of value to you in your service company. You need to check out all the different GPS manufacturers out there so you can learn what would work best for your company and how you can stay efficient. Today with $3.00 per gallon fuel prices you can see the problems, just imagine in the future. Traffic is also at an all time high and many of our roads and highways are in a state of disrepair and even with the $287 Billion Transportation bill it will be a while until we have smooth flow even on our Interstates. Today we deal with disrepair, tomorrow with construction zones and weather issues. Think on this and go GPS today, you will be glad you did.

Aviation History

Travel by airplane has a long and interesting history starting from the first commercial flight in 1933 on the modern airliner, Boeing 247. This important event made a definitive mark in the time line of aviation but was only one of many major accomplishments. The following will highlight a few of the fascinating landmarks of aviation history that punctuated the last century.

The Zeppelin Hindenburg

The 1930s revealed the so-called airship era of aviation history. The German passenger airship LZ 129 Hindenburg was one such example of the popularity of these. However, the event surrounding this airship was a sad one as tragedy struck during flight. Destined for Lakehurst Naval Air Station in Manchester Township, New Jersey, the Hindenburg disaster occurred as the airship caught on fire and crashed. Thirty-five fatalities were counted in this tragic incident and needless to say, confidence in airships dramatically decreased. News coverage broadcast the terrible news all over the globe, essentially bringing the airship period to a sad close.

Chuck Yeager Breaks the Sound Barrier

The sound barrier was broken by Chuck Yeager in 1947, marking another big event in the history of aviation. Yeager was a test pilot in the United States Air Force and flew the experimental Bell X-1 at Mach 1. The aircraft was at an altitude of 45,000 feet when this occurred. The Bell X-1 is on display in the Smithsonian Institution’s national museum for air and space. Yeager received more than one award for this accomplishment, including the MacKay and Collier trophy in 1948 and a trophy for Harmon International in 1954. The Myra, West Virginia native went on to bust through other barriers of sound and even altitude years later.

Boeing 747

Fast-forwarding from Chuck Yeager’s major accomplishment to the 1970s, many people recognize the Boeing 747 and it is often referred to endearingly as the “jumbo jet” of aircraft. Its cargo transport and commercial flight role make it a significant part of aviation history. This airliner, Boeing 747, made its first commercial flight from New York to London in the early part of that decade. Major airlines that use the model include British Airways, Korean Air, Japan Airlines, and Cathay Pacific. The Boeing 747, apart from being recognizable, is important in that it could carry such a large load of passengers or cargo. In fact, it held the record for carrying the most passengers for several decades.

Aviation Continues to Develop

The Zeppelin Hindenburg crisis, Chuck Yeager’s breaking of the sound barrier, and the introduction of the Boeing 747 jumbo jet are just three of the many turning points in aviation. While many more events exist on the historical time line of flight, these events show some of the individual pieces of the puzzle. Events like these have helped shape the history of aviation and offer opportunities for learning and reflection. Flight has come a long way and will continue to change and grow in years to come, making it an exciting part of technology and history!

Weather Flights

Korean Air is the flag carrier of South Korea. It is also considered as the largest airline in South Korea with its headquarters based in Seoul, South Korea. The international Korean flights as well as its cargo flights fly to 130 cities in 45 countries all over the world. The domestic Korean flights serve 20 local destinations. The international hub of Korean flights is at the Incheon International Airport. Korean Air is an original partner of the SkyTeam, the second largest alliance for airlines in the world.

If you are traveling long distances by air on Korean Air flights, it helps to know a few health tips to make your flight more comfortable. The temperature inside the cabin of Koran Air flights is maintained at 22 to 24, which is a very comfortable temperature. It is still best to wear comfortable clothes that are not too thick but always have a light sweater or jacket in your carry-on luggage just in case it gets chilly.

The humidity inside the cabin of Korean flights is kept at a level of 15 percent. The comfortable level of humidity for the average person is at 50 to 60 percent. The 15 percent level on Korean Air flights is already considered to be dry. In dry moisture the body moisture tends to evaporate. The skin as well as the membranes on your eyes and nose also begins to dry out through the course of the flight and it can get quite uncomfortable when that happens. The best thing to do during Korean flights is to keep yourself hydrated by drinking plenty of water, fruit juices or any kind of liquid beverages. Avoid drinking coffee and tea because these beverages can only cause further dehydration. Passengers with contact lens should remove them during Korean flights to avoid dryness of the eyes which could cause the eyes to get inflamed.

The atmospheric pressure inside Korean flights is set at the altitude of 5,000-8,000 feet. There is the tendency that the deafening of the ears may occur. This is caused by the change in the pressure inside the Korean Air flights as they land or take off. To avoid the deafening of your ears chew some gum or just move your jaw up and down as if you are chewing gum. You can also try closing your mouth and then pinching your nose while you blow out some air slowly.

Boat Insurance Can Be Found Cheap

A boat is a large investment and you have to protect your assets. It does not matter if you have you boat in storage, or if it is docked. As a boat owner you may be fearful of high premiums that this type of insurance may have. When you add boat premiums to house and car premiums, it can be a scary picture. There is no need to fear as there are ways to get boat insurance for a cheaper rate.

The first thing to note is that there are different types of coverage offered with boat insurance. One of the most basic, critical and mandatory types is called 'liability insurance'. This is required by law in all states. This provides coverage to individuals or property which are injured and damaged as a result of your boat. This goes hand in hand with 'medical coverage' tied into your boat. The only difference is that it also protects you, the owner. If you happen to meet in an accident, you have to move your boat immediately. If you have an oil leak then you will be charged. 'Pollution coverage' and 'boat removal coverage' deal with these things.

Now that you have knowledge of the different kinds of boat insurance, you must be wondering how you can still get it as such a discounted rate with all these different types of coverage. The first thing you need to do is get everything you have on the boat properly surveyed and evaluated. Make an inventory of these things along with their costs, so that if the need arises to make a claim, you can be fully covered.

From there ensure you have proper safety equipment. The insurance company sees this is a lower risk, and will give you a cheaper insurance premium. If you have no history of any previous accidents with boats, then you will get a lower premium than someone who has had one. Boat owners who have proof that they have recently taken a boat safety course can get reduced premiums. Using the same insurance company that you have used for your other insurance policies will give you an automatic loyalty discount from the agency, resulting in cheaper boat insurance.

Although it is important to consult with your current insurance agency, do not automatically assume that you are getting your boat insuranced cheap. Use their quote as a reference, and begin to get price quotes from other insurance agencies. You may be surprised to find out that these other agencies are offering a better price. Use the internet to get free quotes from multiple insurance companies all in one place.
