Snowboarding Training and Fitness

October 28th, 2009

snowboarding-training.jpgTo think you can go up and snowboard without any degree of physical fitness or training is simply not a good idea. You might be able to learn the basics without any ill effects except some sore muscles, but once you begin to take the sport seriously you must have a solid degree of fitness in both the upper and lower body.

The majority of the strength needed to snowboard comes from your lower body. However, in freestyle riding, the most popular discipline today, an overall level of fitness is needed. That’s because of the twisting and turning involved in the tricks. So while the majority of the effort comes from the legs, to be physically fit throughout is important. Balance and flexibility are also key ingredients to overall snowboarding success.

How to Buy a Franchise: Three Common Problems Explained

October 26th, 2009

buying-franchise.jpgWhen looking at how to buy a franchise business, the problems facing most beginners stem from a lack of understanding about the relationship between franchisor and franchisee. Buying a franchise is like buying a stream of income. A good rule of thumb is that the more reliable the stream of income, the more the franchise will cost, and the less control you’ll have over your own business. Franchisors generally make their money by selling franchises, selling goods and services to those businesses, and receiving a percentage of revenues. The better franchises are those that make the lion’s share of their profits through the franchisee’s ongoing operations. That gives them a strong motivation to help you succeed. The better you do, the better they will do. Below are three common problems that you may have when buying a franchise:

Central Bank of Nigeria Scam

October 25th, 2009

nigeria-419-scam.jpgOur latest spam warning focuses on an email that has been making the rounds over the past few months and has become known as the Central Bank of Nigeria scam. This is really just another version of the old 419 advance fee fraud trick, but it follows a recently popular pattern that I like to call the “fake scambuster” tactic. The basic idea is for the spammer-scammers to pose as some type of authority figures (in this case as officers under the authority of an “executive governor” of an apparently legitimate bank, with assistance from the Nigerian government) and make it look like they are trying to protect you from the “real” scammers, implying that the sender of the message is somehow more legitimate and trustworthy.

How to Find Good Small Business Supplies and Suppliers

October 23rd, 2009

small-business-supply.jpgWhen sourcing small business supplies, the more you and your suppliers act like partners, the fewer problems you’ll have. However, in order to act like partners you’ll need to be well suited to each other. Partnerships, whether between individuals or companies, require that the whole partnership equals more than just the sum of its parts. The best partnerships are those in which the parties complement each other, providing skills, traits, and abilities the other lacks.

The classic example of this symbiotic relationship is a retail partnership between an “inside person” who focuses on the bookkeeping, management, and buying supplies and an “outside person” who concentrates on the sales, marketing, and promotion. The equivalent example of a business/supplier partnership is a small entrepreneurial business that focuses on its core operation, which teams up with a large full-service supplier that provides every kind of customer service under the sun. Such a relationship will work wonderfully because the supplier offers exactly what the entrepreneur needs, while the entrepreneur provides the one thing the supplier lacks, an outlet to sell their products to consumers. As long as your relationships with your small business suppliers fit this partnership model, you should have relatively few problems.

Air Force One Shoes Review

October 22nd, 2009

air-force-one-nike-shoes.jpgAlthough the phrase “Air Force One” is usually associated with the president of the USA, it also happens to be a very popular brand of shoe manufactured by Nike. While the quality of this article by Arijit Roul still leaves much to be desired even after heavy editing, the actual product should prove to be much more agreeable. If you are looking to buy some new Air Force One shoes or want to read some other reviews of them, these are available here from Amazon.com. The page that I have linked to is for the classic white men’s variety; however, after clicking through you can find many more colors and styles (including women’s models) from the same retailer.

Most of these shops offer a pretty large variety of silver coins and tokens which are dated from the 1800s to the current date and are available in the form of silver rounds, casino tokens, and silver art souvenirs. Sometimes you will even find gold coins or occasionally silver ones with a touch of brass border. They have denominations ranging from $3 to $10, although $7 tends to be the most common one used.
