  • Role Of The Moon In Education

    ROLE OF THE MOON IN EDUCATION

    All astrological texts and astrologers accept that the Moon, inter-alia, is Mind and the question for consideration in this small write-up is whether and to what extent education can be acquired by benefic or malefic Moon. At the same time, the involvement of major significators for education namely Jupiter and Mercury cannot be ruled out. Similarly certain signs and their lords play their parts. However, though total consideration of the horoscope may be needed but the discussion shall be confined to the specific question of the role played NATAL MOON in acquiring ‘Education’.

    What constitutes ‘education’ for purposes of astrology would differ from native to native and in view of the modern times, astrology would cover education from primary to secondary, secondary to graduation and therefore graduation to post-graduation augmented by higher studies. At the same time it becomes inevitable to mention that’ education’ is a word of wide importance and taking the dictionary meaning into consideration, education stands for bringing up or training as of child, instruction, strengthening the powers of the body or mind. Further analysis would say that education includes ‘culture’, technical education, and cover various fields of Art, Music, Drama, Archaeology, Economic and Sanitary Science and Psychological healing. This apart, the word ‘education’ has come to stay for the process of training and developing the knowledge, skill mind and covers normal schooling. However, education cannot be restricted to scholastic education only. It would cover all steps of learning apart from education through schools/colleagues and universities. Hence the need for mind (Moon) for any type of ‘learning education’ would differ from native depending on the personal horoscope.

    The Moon in mind. The Moon represents ‘Chitta’ or emotions of all sorts. The Moon represents the highest state of mind and learning in all kinds of liquids, including water and milk, is inter-alia, provided by the Moon (a watery planet). The requisite skill (education) to rule general public is governed by the Moon. In astrology, the Moon has also been treated as an eye, specially left eye and no education would be possible without proper eyesight, thus the Moon plays its role though in Modern times, even a blind-man can learn to read and write.

     The Moon in various signs and houses also influence the scope of education to be acquired by the native. Briefly, the Moon in Taurus makes the native intelligent (with or without proper schooling), the Moon in Gemini makes the native scholarly and learned, and intelligence is also conferred by the Moon in Virgo and Libra, though in Libra, the native would be of balanced mind, the moon in Sagittarius make the native well versed in literature and some natives may become authors and the Moon in Aquarius makes the native learned with power of institution.

    The internal darkness of the native dispelled by the rays of the Moon and is said to rule over the lives of the beings on the earth. All this amounts to self-realization and …

  • Watch The Descendants Movie 2011 Online Megavideo

    PLOT: Matt King (George Clooney) is the descendant of Hawaiian royalty, and, along with his many cousins, owns a big chunk of highly valued land. On the eve of a big land deal, in which Matt is the trustee, his wife has a boating accident, that puts her in a coma. Essentially brain-dead, her living will means that she’s going to be taken off life-support, and before she dies, King wants his two daughters (Shailene Woodley and Amara Miller) to make peace with their mother. However, it turns out that Matt has a peace of his own to make, when he discovers his wife has been carrying on a long-term affair.

    REVIEW: THE DESCENDANTS is Alexander Payne’s long-awaited follow-up to SIDEWAYS. Like that film, THE DESCENDANTS is a pitch-perfect mix of humor and drama. While the plot line makes this sound like a tragedy, it’s actually one of the more life-affirming movies I’ve seen in a while. We all have baggage, regardless of our backgrounds, and the opening narration by Clooney, which is superimposed over the day-to-day, seamier side of Hawaii (far away from the beaches and Mai Tais) reaffirms the fact that just because you live in “paradise” doesn’t mean your life is perfect.

    Clooney’s Matt King is an interesting character. Fabulously wealthy, he’s a disciplined man who refuses to live off any of the money that he inherited, embracing a relatively thrifty lifestyle, where he supports his family solely on the income he makes as a fairly successful land-lawyer. While not stated explicitly, we get the feeling that King’s wife might have married him for his money, with her grief-stricken father (played by Robert Forster) admonishing him for not given his wife the material things she wanted, like a boat, or a home abroad.

    The heart of the film is Clooney’s relationship with his daughters, with his workaholic ways meaning that he’s essentially a stranger to them. His older daughter, a wild child who’s a lot like her mother (a strong turn by newcomer Shailene Woodley) was estranged from the family, mostly due to the fact that she knew her mother was cheating, and threatened to expose her. The scene where she tells him about the affair is likely going to be the film’s signature scene, as instead of throwing an angry fit, he throws on his sandals, and clumsily runs through the streets.

    A good chunk of the film follows Clooney and his daughters on a trip to the island paradise Clooney and his family owns, ostensibly to survey the land, but really to track down and confront his wife’s lover (played by a maturing Matthew Liliard), who’s got a family of his own (with his wife played by Judy Greer). This section of the film gives the audience the beautiful scenery they’d expect from a film set in Hawaii, and it raises some interesting questions about how all the beauty we have left in the world is being snatched by greedy land-barons to turn into mini-malls …

  • The Popularity of Newspapers: a Few Reasons

    Newspapers serve news. With rates of literacy going up there is an increase in the margin of newspaper readership. Nobody wants to be left out of the purview of newspapers. Everybody wants to read one. People who are unable to read want others to read newspapers out to them. Even people in a country like India with low literacy rates have now taken to newspapers big time for their daily dose of Tamil Nadu news or UP News or West Bengal news. In fact, newspapers are extremely popular in India. They are published in variety of regional dialects apart from the three principal tongues of Hindi, Urdu and English. They are read with great interest, even listened to with an equal amount of interest and seem to exert tremendous influence on every individual.

    • The principal function of newspapers is to bring news belonging to far away corners. For example, one may be able to read Tamil Nadu news from Kashmir or up News sitting in Andhra Pradesh or know everything about the latest West Bengal news from Maharashtra. News is the chief USP of every newspaper. They are instrumental in informing us about the stuff that is happening not only in our country but in other nations of the world as well. It would be difficult to imagine a world without newspapers. Our universe would have become a restricted one without them.
    • India is a democracy and in a country like ours newspapers are one of the major factors behind the creation of public opinion. People would ideally comment on current affairs and end up appreciating the present Government strategy. Through news from Tamil Nadu people in North India get to know about the problems faced by citizens out there. Again, Bengal news tells so much about the conduct of political parties there. It is after a thorough assessment of all such news that people form an opinion about certain matters.
    • Apart from the above functions newspapers may also be regarded as an important means of communication between the Government and its people. Governments place their policies through newspapers. For example, local Governments in Tamil Nadu will choose Tamil Nadu newspapers to put forth their policies before the public. The same applies in case of up newspapers and the governments out there or for so many other states of India.
    • Newspapers are also one of the principal means for advertisements. They help trade and commerce. If an industrialist is eyeing an expansion of profit margins, he may as well place ads in newspapers. Be it a Tamil Nadu newspaper or any other state news papers advertisements have come to occupy a special place everywhere.

    India may have several states and their news papers may be different but the same feelings are floated through them obviously. One cannot ignore the fact that whether Tamil Nadu news, UP news or west Bengal news it is ultimately Indian news altogether.…

  • Bathroom Lighting Tips

    Home lighting means providing beauty as well as light, but unlike other rooms, your bathroom lighting should be first and foremost designed for function. But keep in mind that it can be beautiful as well.

    The bathroom is where you and your family prepare yourselves to greet the world and so it needs the right kind of lighting . At the same time the modern bathroom is also a place to relax and where you go to read a book or simply to lie and wash away the cares of the day. Doing it right means achieving a balance between these two things – on the one hand a bright light for practical uses and on the other a softer light for more relaxing moments. In other words, combine task lighting for those practical moments, ambient lighting for general use and accent lighting for when you want to highlight certain areas.

    This article will focus only on the task lighting in a bathroom. In the bathroom, especially around the vanity mirrors, task lighting is critical. When shaving, preening or plucking, you want the light to be bright enough to reveal even the sneakiest of chin hairs, yet natural enough to avoid those embarrassing makeup muck-ups.

    Here are some suggestions to improve your bathroom lighting:

    1. Remember you don’t want your lights to be too strong or too dim, and lighting that comes from the sides is generally more flattering than lighting that comes from above (there’s a reason lights run up and down the side of mirrors in Hollywood dressing rooms!). It will cast an even light across the face and eliminate shadows.

    And, consider installing a small lit concave mirror near the main vanity mirror. The concave curvature of the mirror will magnify what you see in the mirror and the additional light will help improve the lighting for special tasks such as shaving or applying makeup.

    2. Whether you choose incandescent, LED or even fluorescent bulbs, make sure the light they emit is within the natural daylight spectrum. Bulbs that are mostly yellow or white will not reflect your natural skin tone.

    It is recommended that special neodymium light bulbs be used in the vanity fixtures since they provide excellent light that very closely simulates sunlight. A neodymium light bulb is an incandescent light bulb that has a slight bluish tint to it. The bluish tint, created by a thin coating of neodymium inside the glass envelope, will cause the light bulb to provide less yellowish light like a standard incandescent light bulb and, therefore, be more like the sun.

    3. Recessed lighting is an excellent choice for lighting up showers, tubs and toilet areas. In the shower and tub, recessed lighting can be angled to bring out tile design, stone inlays and other decorative design features in those areas. And anyone with a full magazine rack next to the stool can imagine what a recessed light overhead can do for that space as well.

    4. In the …

  • Buying a Treadmill? 3 Mistakes Most Buyers Make

    Buying a treadmill? Did you know there are several mistakes many new buyers make? I’ve made them – and I’ve heard from many people who have also made them.

    But if you can avoid these mistakes, you can save yourself a lot of trouble. Here are 3 simple mistakes that most new buyers make – followed by 3 tips for buying a treadmill at a discount.

    #1 Buying A Cheap Treadmill To Run On

    Running takes a toll on the body. It stresses the joints and ligaments. Because of this, runners need a higher quality of treadmill with high-end cushioning and a super strong deck.

    But, far too often, people get lured into the bargain buys and go cheap on their treadmill. They get a ‘deal’ and buy a discount treadmill with below average construction and poor cushioning.

    While this kind of treadmill may be alright for occasional walking, it’s not good enough for runners. Before they know it they have all kinds of injuries – all from running on a cheaply built treadmill.

    I know of one woman who could barely walk after 3 months running on a cheap treadmill. She’d strained her hips and had to wait for another 2 months before she could run again (on a different treadmill of course!).

    If you – or anyone else in your family – is planning to run, skip the cheap department store treadmills. Go for something that’s well made with strong deck and excellent cushioning system. It could save you a lot of pain and expensive visits to the doctor.

    #2 Not Counting The Extra Costs When Comparing Prices

    Most people will compare prices on the treadmill they want – and with the Internet, it’s easy to do. But they often forget to add in the extra costs when doing their comparison.

    For example, the local store may offer your treadmill for $100 less than the online store – but they’ll charge you $200 to ship it. Many online sellers offer free shipping. That makes it $100 more expensive to buy from the store than online.

    Then there’s also sales tax at your local store – whereas many online sellers (at least at the time of this writing) won’t charge you sales tax.

    So when comparing prices, make sure to figure in all costs to get an accurate take on which treadmill is cheaper.

    Another thing to consider is whether you want a treadmill mat, magazine holder, laptop holder, handweights, etc. These are all incidentals that can also add to the bottom line.

    #3 Getting Seduced by the Treadmill Goodies

    Goodies on a treadmill can turn a boring old workout into your own personal entertainment station. And there are more being added to treadmills each year. You can find TV’s, iPod docks, speaker systems, personal trainer workouts and even wireless Internet connections.

    There’s nothing wrong with buying a treadmill with lots of goodies. Just don’t let that seduce you into buying a cheap treadmill that doesn’t have the basics …

  • Controlled Circulation and Future Objectives in Business Publications

    The circulation of many business/trade publications as well as some consumer publications are either paid or controlled. Recipients of controlled circulation magazines receive the magazine free of charge because they qualify for it some way, such as because they are employed in certain industry profession, represent a targeted group of buyers of specific category of products or represent a group of particular interest to certain types of advertisers. Controlled publications qualify their subscribers after obtaining detailed information about them and their originations.

    Controlled publications are delivered to individuals mainly they have requested for it and qualify to receive the publication.

    As the global economy fast evolving and shifting in recent years and business-to-business publication scenario is changing, business-to-business publishers must change with it. To succeed in this more dynamic environment, companies need to excel at managing a mix of monetization models across advertising, subscriptions and commerce. Publishers who support the business-to-business market are facing the challenges of reworking their business models to support new ways of gaining revenue with targeted audiences. Business-to-Business Media has always centered around a targeted audience but of late it is becoming more diverse and becoming more difficult to maintain.

    Many experts believe that the controlled circulation model of business to business publishing is not sustainable in its current form and advising the use of free social networking technology to launch new money-making spin-offs for its brands and even supporting the idea of charging for online content in some way. New strategy can be to connect communities with as many routes to market as possible and using a free marketing tool for subscriptions, events and webinars.

    As traditional advertising revenues are showing significant drops and industry is trying new methods to realize this goal of increased revenue and monetize their content, one thing is clear – business-to-business publishers must adopt flexible circulation models that encourage a diversified approach to their business. The current business environment has brought about new trend in media shift like growth and diversity of digital media, growth in custom media, and decline in print media.

    By implementing a flexible circulation model, a hybrid system that can handle both paid and controlled circulation; you diversify into new revenue models and seek new ways to monetize your high value content. Monetization of content can come in many forms, from the type of media like print, online to the distribution method such as paid or controlled. Shifting to mixed monetization models and how best to track the revenues they produce can be a challenge. It is important to take this fact into account that transition will not work for every publisher and will affect the future business also.

    When businesses are seeking to monetize data, it is important to note that readers should see that fact that in current business avenue information is specialized helps in saving and making money. And subscribers see the high value of the data being provided and thoroughly analyze possible paid content offerings.

    While it is true that business in …

  • Prison Break Season 3 Said to be "best Yet"

    With the highly anticipated return of the phenomenally successful, Prison Break, on FOX next month, fans and critics alike are wondering just how well the third season of the series can possibly stack up to the monumental triumph of the first two installments. According to Dominic Purcell, who plays the lead character Lincoln Burrows, the upcoming offering promises to be even better.

    “I’ve seen some cut-together stuff and it’s really impressive,” Purcell revealed in an interview with TV Guide. “When you see it, you’ll understand what I’m saying.”

    E! Online provides several major details to watch out for, when Prison Break resumes in September.

    First off, the series will revisit its original winning formula revolving around key characters struggling with their incarceration. When the series left off at the close of season 2, Michael Scofield, Alex Mahone, Brad Bellick and Theodore Bagwell were locked up in the South American prison called Sona.

    In season 3, Scofield, Lincoln’s brother and mastermind of their daring escape from Fox River prison, commences planning their Sona jailbreak by episode five. Meanwhile, former FBI agent Mahone is doomed to a year of waiting for the start of his trial. His imprisonment becomes doubly difficult as he battles withdrawal from the pills he’d been addicted to. Former Fox River head guard Bellick is reduced to the bottom of the food chain at Sona.

    Outside the confines of a correctional facility, Lincoln devotes his time and energy in locating Sara Tancredi, who finds herself with Lincoln’s son, LJ, at the hands of a mysterious stranger.

    Finally, Dominic Purcell hinted at increased attention to his character in season 3. “It’s kind of been described as Lincoln in his own private little spy story,” Purcell intimated.

    He also mentioned that Burrows will find himself in far more pleasant company as his alter ego is finally given a long overdue love interest.

    “And it’s about time. Lincoln needs to get laid,” the actor admitted.
