It has been an emotional journey for many of us involved in Markethive. After becoming involved with Veretekk about 4-5 years ago, I knew that the concept and vision of Markethive was a sure fired winner.</p> <p><img alt="" src="" style="height:96px; width:421px" /></p> <p>There is no argument that it has taken time and had various delays brought on by certain things that I will not go into now .. why? ... because I need to concentrate my energy into building Markethive and not worry about the issues.&nbsp;</p> <p>Until just 3 months ago, I was just one of the Founders of Markethive, having invested hard cash into its conception and my own time being a pro-active member. I then took on the role of Chief Engineer, to see Markethive not just to its completion, but to make sure that the systems are built on sound foundations. Many issues have been fixed during these 3 months, many enhancements have been made and I am very close to moving the whole system that is running on servers hosted by one company to Amazon Web Services. The latter is a huge task, mainly due to the way it was configured and how the code was written. For example there are&nbsp;4000 files containing code, which&nbsp;equates to around 2 million lines of code.</p> <p>I have recruited server admins, PHP coders etc... only to waste time with them and for them to disappear. Frustrating to say the least, but this is the process we must go through. To sift through the dirt and dust to find the nuggets of gold .. which I am sure I will.</p> <h2>What&#39;s next?</h2> <p>The next big enhancement will be the Affiliate Programme. This will be a game changer ... now how many times have i heard those claims from companies? .. well I can tell you .. far too many. We are different in so many ways, mainly due to the people involved and their passion .. in helping the little guy and gal to succeed and prosper... not just financially but also as a person.</p> <p>Well I am working on a new way of sharing blog posts (along with RSS Cocktails of blog posts) with members Social Media accounts. Once configured within Markethive, blog posts will seamlessly be shared across their networks, creating far more exposure than ever&nbsp;seen.</p> <p>I am also working on a Newsletter Subscription system. We know that every blog needs to deliver its message to subscribers. That&#39;s why I am creating HivesFeed RSS-to-Email (and eventually integrated with the above enhancement), the reliable solution for bloggers with BIG ambitions.</p> <p><strong>There are two important things all bloggers need to do...</strong></p> <p>1. Write great content.<br /> 2. Share that content.</p> <p>HivesFeed helps you to share your content easily, effortlessly and continuously.</p> <p>We take your RSS feed and enable its distribution.</p> <p>So there you have it .. that is my own perspective on what we have to look forward to. Here&#39;s to a great a future.</p> <p><strong><span style="color:#0000FF"><em>If you believe that my message is worth spreading, please use the share buttons if they are visible on this page.</em></span></strong></p> <p><strong>Stephen Hodgkiss<br /> Chief Engineer at MarketHive</strong><br /> <a href="" target="_blank"></a></p> <hr /> Fri, 20 Nov 2015 06:03:58 -0700 2 Life-changing Books About Wealth And Happiness <div class="challIntro"><span style="font-family:verdana,geneva">These books have helped me develop a a powerful mindset with the ability to think like successful people.

You find several job opportunities for decent pay that may or may not be in the field you want to work in. Eventually you came across a position that you like and get hired with the company. After the initial interview they request for you to come back and fill out new hire paperwork to get started. A couple of days go by and you return to the new employers office to fill out the new hire packet somewhat excited about the new position. After 30 minutes of filling out the new hire packet you come across a thick document that states &quot;Non-Compete Agreement&quot;. Do you sign it or not? What do you do?</div> <p>&nbsp;</p> <div class="itemLesson">I am going to share my own experience with non-compete agreements and tell you honestly how I feel about them. the scenario above is something that happened to me to the point where the employer gave misleading information about the context of the agreement. Note: There is much more to the story which I cannot share do to legal reasons but I will give my take on the non-compete and give you the reader excellent advise on how to proceed in a situation like this. I am going to get straight to the point here. If you are ever presented with on of these agreements from an employer, DO NOT SIGN IT EVER!!! By doing so you are giving away your right to compete in a competitive market. chance are you may get sued for pursuing your dream as an employee (I do not like the employee world and this one reason why). Non-Compete Agreements are unconstitutional for low to mid-level employees and really should only be contracted with corporate directors and such for trade secret protection at best. I am still not in favor of them. Every person should have the right to work for who they want to work for. No employer should ever have the right to tell someone where they can and cannot work. Have you heard of the case with Jimmy John&#39;s sandwich restaurant? They make all their employees sign non-competes to protect their &quot;secret sauce&quot; sandwich recipe. The company actually sued a former employee for violating the agreement. Are you kidding me??? Is anyone really that interested in stealing their recipe of ham, turkey, or roast beef?</div> <div class="postSegue">Every wonder what it would be like to have your own business that could very well make you more money than your current job? Even better, you don&#39;t have to worry about non-compete agreements!

Now the whole world lies at your feet and you can pick and choose, where, when,and how you want to work. This can be frightening for some, however&nbsp; opportunities abound and you need to be flexible, open minded to learn new skill and prepared to take risks to become successful. Hard work and producing results will usually be rewarded.</p> <p>There are few jobs that can be guaranteed, however there are drawback for employers as the sense of loyalty seems to have become lost and it is not unusual to have higher staff turnovers. Modern working tends to rely on networking and&nbsp; short term working which is more allied to working as an entrepreneur but with less risk.</p> <p>A true entrepreneur has to assume all risks with building a business and be naturally adaptive to changing situation, networking&nbsp; ability is essential and forming alliances with other entrepreneurs together with sharing ideas and obtaining feedback can ensure success of your project.</p> <p>MarketHive is becoming a favoured meeting place for budding entrepreneurs and I would like you to take a look and give me your feedback.</p> <p><strong>David Ogden</strong><br /> <a href="">Http://</a><br /> <em>Helping People Help Themselves</em></p> Wed, 11 Nov 2015 12:36:59 -0700 Email Abuse and how to be blacklisted <p>Just a bit of advice to readers here. In the old days, it was a clever trick to set up an auto-responder trying to push an &quot;opportunity&quot; on your email address account. These are also referred to as &quot;out of office replies&quot;. <em><strong>Do not confuse what I am referring to here&nbsp;with real auto-responders, when&nbsp;someone has actually signed-up to receive information from them.</strong></em></p> <p><img alt="" src="" style="height:236px; width:551px" /></p> <p>This is not liked by most ESP&#39;s (Email Service Providers). &nbsp;Times have changed. Now it is just seen as abuse and will&nbsp;not do any good for your on-line reputation.</p> <p>This will get your email address blacklisted at Amazon who we at Markethive use as our Email Provider and because we have to follow by strict rules and procedures, we then put your email address in our own blacklist, so no further correspondence is sent to it.</p> <p>So, be sensible .. remove those pesky blighters from your account settings and add a personal touch when contacting prospective clients or customers.</p> <p><strong><span style="color:#0000FF"><em>If you believe that my message is worth spreading, please use the share buttons if they are visible on this page.</em></span></strong></p> <p><strong>Stephen Hodgkiss<br /> Chief Engineer at MarketHive</strong><br /> <a href="" target="_blank"></a></p> <hr /> Tue, 10 Nov 2015 10:57:53 -0700 What Is MarketHive <p>MarketHive is an extraordinary product/system, the brainchild of one Tom Prendergast who has been marketing online from the time of the launch of the personal computers.</p> <p>It is difficult to describe exactly what it is, It is a combined flexible marketing system and social business oriented social network , but it goes beyond that, Its a place where members can share knowledge and in some cases influence the future direction of the system.</p> <p>Marketing has changed over the years to make use of changes in technology, now you have mobile devices which have multiple functions and ways to instantly communicate with friends, family, business and other systems.

We share the details of the how and why below.</p> <p><img alt="" src="" style="height:236px; width:551px" /></p> <p>Freelancers, whether they&#39;re working as virtual assistants, writers, or transcribers for local law offices, are under constant pressure to please clients each and every time.</p> <p>You know all too well how hungry the competition is. It&rsquo;s one of the reasons you always try to go above and beyond with each client. The good news is that there are five ways you can wow your clients every time so they&rsquo;ll never need to consider anyone but you.</p> <h2>Stay in Touch</h2> <p>You&rsquo;d be surprised by just how much this means to clients. Not to mention how few competitors take this advice to heart. It&rsquo;s easy to lose touch over the duration of long projects. A simple email note about the status of the project goes a long way towards helping your clients feel appreciated and preventing them from worrying about whether you&rsquo;ll be able to deliver on time.</p> <h2>Ask Questions</h2> <p>More importantly, listen to the answers and use them in your work. Clients love it when you give them exactly what they want. Sometimes, that requires asking questions, refining, and narrowing.</p> <h2>Choose &ldquo;Can Do&rdquo; Terminology</h2> <p>When working with clients, there are many times when it&rsquo;s not what you say that makes the difference, but how you say it. Learning to communicate effectively is a must when dealing with clients. However, learning to effectively communicate positively adds that extra little wow factor that keeps clients coming back for more. For instance, instead of telling your client that you can&rsquo;t have a project finished until after 3 p.m. on Friday, try telling your clients that &quot;I can have that project finished by 3 p.m. on Friday. Does that work for you?&rdquo; That subtle change has a significant impact on the way clients view you. When you use words like can&rsquo;t, they view you as someone who can&rsquo;t get things done. When you change them to can, they see you as someone with a can-do attitude who will make things happen.</p> <h2>Deliver the Goods</h2> <p>In many cases, this is all it takes. However, you don&rsquo;t want to merely deliver what the client asked for. You want to exceed your client&rsquo;s expectations and you want to make sure that the client leaves the transaction believing he got more than his money&rsquo;s worth.</p> <h2>Follow Up</h2> <p>The fortune is in the follow-up. You&rsquo;ll hear this in almost any business you enter into. It&rsquo;s not the one-time sell that becomes your bread and butter. It&rsquo;s the people who keep coming back, month after month, to make use of the services you provide or the goods you sell. Follow up.</p> <p>Make sure they&rsquo;re happy with the product, service, etc. and double-check to ensure nothing is wrong, missing, or lost in translation. Then, ask if they need other products or services you offer and invite them to call on you again. This gives them the perfect opportunity to hire you again.</p> <p>You don&rsquo;t have to move mountains, make hard sells, or walk on burning coals to make customers happy. These five steps are relatively simple and yet they deliver happy customers time and time again. Try them out and see what a difference they make for your business.</p> <p><strong><span style="color:#0000FF"><em>If you believe that my message is worth spreading, please use the share buttons if they are visible on this page.</em></span></strong></p> <p><strong>Stephen Hodgkiss<br /> Chief Engineer at MarketHive</strong><br /> <a href="" target="_blank"></a></p> <hr /> Sat, 07 Nov 2015 12:42:37 -0700 Coming up With a Niche for a Blog <p>In a sea of endless posts, how will you differentiate yourself? Keep these factors in mind when starting a blog.&nbsp;</p> <p><img alt="" src="" style="height:131px; width:540px" /></p> <p>With over 150 million blogs on the internet, starting one that stands out enough to gain followers and earn an income certainly isn&#39;t an easy task. Before the big blogging boom, it was much simpler to gain a readership, but with so many blogs out there, the first step to starting a blog is to find a unique niche - a topic that you can comfortably write about, that a lot of people want to read about.</p> <p>One reader took to the forums to gauge interest and get some insight on choosing a niche for her blog, potentially on the topic of frugal living in a high cost area. But the feedback that came back could help out anyone looking to start their own blog - so counting the feedback and adding a few more tips, here&#39;s what to consider when coming up with a niche for your own blog.</p> <h2>Is there a big enough interest for the topic?</h2> <p>Blogs that earn an income have a very high number of daily visitors. Are there enough people interested in that topic to generate that kind of traffic? The trick is to make your topic broad enough to interest a wide range of people, but narrow enough that you&#39;re &quot;not just another blog.&quot;</p> <h2>Do you have enough experience to write on the topic?</h2> <p>What information can you offer readers? If you are researching the information yourself and simply regurgitating what you read elsewhere, it&#39;s probably not a good topic for you. On the other hand, if you have quite a bit of experience in the area or are living through it as in a frugal living blog, then you may have found the right topic for you.</p> <h2>Can you write a lot of different articles on that topic?</h2> <p>If your goal is to turn your blog into an income, it will take many, many hours of work. Don&#39;t pick a topic you are not passionate about - you&quot;ll end up burnt out months down the road. If, on the other hand you can&#39;t stop talking about your topic and love anything related, that passion will come in handy managing a blog.</p> <h2>What kind of competition is out there?</h2> <p>Small blogs don&#39;t have much chance ranking in the search results behind large companies that have entire teams devoted to search engine optimization. What other blogs cover the same topic? Are there many, or just a few? Do they cover it in a similar manner, or is there something to set your blog apart? Once you&#39;ve scoped out the other competing sites, take a look at the Google AdWords Keyword Tool and type in a few potential topics you might write about, click the keyword ideas tab, then click the competition tab twice to arrange the ideas from low to high. Are there related keywords that rank low? If all the keywords you come up with are ranking high, it will be extremely tough for your blog to show up in the first few pages of the search results.</p> <h2>Can you pinpoint an audience?</h2> <p>Writing a blog involves reaching out to an audience - do you know who that audience is? Sure, your blog can have one main audience and a few smaller audiences, but you should be able to pinpoint who you are writing to. Are you reaching out to moms? Dads? Businessmen? Teenagers? A frugal living in a high cost area blog would have a very defined audience, yet that group of people is probably big enough to work with.</p> <h2>Is it easy to monetize?</h2> <p>There&#39;s more than one way to make money from a blog. How would your blog make money? Selling ads with a program like AdWords is a popular option - you&quot;ll just need to ensure your topic reaches to an audience businesses also want to advertise to. Blogs can also make money by selling ebooks or products, or through affiliate links. It&#39;s a good idea to build an audience before monetizing, but you should still consider just how your topic can be monetized before you get started.</p> <p>Blogs can be an excellent home-based businesses, if you have the passion, knowledge, writing skills and time. But every successful blog also needs a niche - consider elements like competition, interest and audience before venturing out into the world of blogging.</p> <p><strong><span style="color:#0000FF"><em>If you believe that my message is worth spreading, please use the share buttons if they show at the top of the page.</em></span></strong></p> <p><strong>Stephen Hodgkiss<br /> Chief Engineer at MarketHive</strong><br /> <a href="" target="_blank"></a></p> <hr /> Sun, 01 Nov 2015 15:51:13 -0700 Get Greater Profits With The Use Of Blogs, RSS And Article Marketing <p>One of the fastest ways to generate traffic to your site is with the use of blogs, RSS and article marketing. In addition, Bogs, RSS and article marketing are almost free to low cost, thus assuring you of greater profits.</p> <p>Blogs are easy to set up quickly and can be on any topic imaginable. It is a good idea to set up a blog to cater to a particular niche market or to have one for your existing site. Combined with the use of RSS (Really Simple Syndication or Rich Site Summary), your blog’s online content can be turned into a RSS feed and syndicated (distributed) pretty easily. RSS creates a simple headline that if clicked on leads the reader to the full story. All the reader needs to do is to subscribe to your RSS feeds through a little orange button from your site with the aid of a RSS feed reader. Blog posts are usually short and if you post often enough, spiders from the search engines will come crawling more often.</p> <p>Article marketing is simply writing articles about your niche area and submitting them to online article directories and ezine newsletters for publicity. At the bottom of the article, you are allowed to insert your author’s resource box. This is where you write a few promotional lines about yourself and your site and include your site link.</p> <p>You can use your blog posts to link to the articles that you have written. A good size article is usually longer at about 300-600 words compared to a blog post. By referencing your articles in your blog, you are giving them more publicity mileage. In fact, I highly recommend the use of article marketing to generate publicity for your site. It is almost free, save for article distribution costs that you may decide to purchase instead of submitting to the sites manually.</p> <p>Many online article directories also offer RSS syndication from their sites. This provides an avenue for online visitors to subscribe to the RSS feed for a particular category that you have submitted your article to. Chances are some of them may also be looking for RSS feeds to be incorporated into their sites for their own website visitors.</p> <p>Others may simply be very interested in this category for their own personal consumption. A good example is if your article is on constipation and you submit your article under the category of “health”. A webmaster may be on the lookout for RSS feeds for his health site. Or someone who is highly constipated may be particularly interested in what you post in your blog. Through the author’s resource box in your article, they can find your site and the RSS subscription button to your blog posts and articles pretty easily.</p> <p>Thus, RSS has the potential to give your blog great exposure to a wide audience of subscribers building a bigger readership in less time. If you also optimize your blog content and the articles that you write for your site at the same time with a good keyword strategy, then you will be assured of free search engine traffic. Lots of traffic plus huge readership can only mean greater profits!</p> Sun, 01 Nov 2015 10:17:44 -0700 5 Reasons Why You are Not Being Hired <p>Make your resume stand out by being specific with your qualifications and following all directions in the job posting.</p> <p><a href="" target="_blank"><img alt="find a job" src="" style="height:303px; width:551px" /></a></p> <p>Finding legitimate home-based jobs is not difficult. The challenge is getting hired, and it&rsquo;s not uncommon to apply for a job, but never even get a response back. There are many reasons why you may not get a response from an employer, but most of them stem from the quality of resume you submit. Most job seekers view the resume as a laundry list of skills and experience, when in fact it&rsquo;s a marketing brochure. Here are five reasons your resume might be ignored by potential employers.</p> <p><strong>Your resume is boring and generic.</strong> For every job opening, there are at least 75 applicants, according to George Washington University Office of Career Services. To compete with all those applicants, your resume needs to wow the employer. You can do that by tailoring each resume to the needs of the employer, stressing your value, and using active verbs to highlight your skills. Don&rsquo;t just list typing as a skill. Instead say, &ldquo;I type 80 words per minute.&rdquo;</p> <p><strong>Your resume focuses on duties instead of results.</strong> Employers want to know you have the skills to do the job, but you can impress them by listing how your talents will help them. Translate your skills into results oriented benefits. For example, being able to type 80 words per minute means greater productivity.</p> <p><strong>Your resume sounds desperate.</strong> While employers might care that you&rsquo;re in dire financial straits, they&rsquo;re not going to hire you because of it. They don&rsquo;t need to know your marital or parental status, or hobbies and skills that don&rsquo;t relate to the job you&rsquo;re applying for. You don&rsquo;t need to explain any gaps in your work history. If the employer wants to know any of those things, they will ask during the interview. Remember, the goal of a resume is to focus on the skills and experiences you have to do the job the employer needs. Any other information is irrelevant and only wastes the employer&#39;s time.</p> <p><strong>You didn&rsquo;t follow directions.</strong> More and more employers are vetting applicants by having them follow specific instructions for applying, such as using an exact subject line when emailing the resume. Some even state in the job listing that they don&#39;t want a standard, generic resume. Others don&rsquo;t want a resume at all, but instead a statement about why you&rsquo;re the best candidate for the job. All these instructions are important because if you don&rsquo;t follow them, you&rsquo;re showing the employer that you can&#39;t follow directions. Read every job announcement carefully, and make sure you send what it asks for, how it asks for it.</p> <p><strong>You sent your resume as an email attachment or it is illegible.</strong> In most cases, employers will ask that you email your resume in the body of an email. If it doesn&rsquo;t specify how to send the resume, send it in the body of the email to avoid getting lost in the spam or antivirus filter. To ensure your resume is readable when it reaches the employer, don&rsquo;t paste it from your word processing program into the email. Not all email programs are able to retain rich text or formatting such as indents and apostrophes. Instead, paste the resume into Notepad or another text editor, justify everything left, and then paste into your email. Use these instructions when pasting your resume into an online form as well.</p> <p>The resume is the first chance you have to make an employer take notice. If it fails to impress, you don&rsquo;t get an interview. Don&rsquo;t let your resume end up in the deleted file. Make your resume stand out and follow the employers directions to improve your chances of getting a work-at-home job.

The question becomes, how do you separate the wheat from the chaff?

While multi-level marketing may have made a few people at the top wealthy, no MLM today is creating wealth for those who are just joining.</p> <p>Second, you need to forget direct sales. Very, very few people are have a natural talent for selling; for the rest of us, direct sales is difficult or impossible, and a sure path to frustration, discouragement, and failure.</p> <p>Third, you need to embrace a company that has a proven system for marketing. So many Internet businesses fail today because business owners simply don&#39;t know how to market. After all, you can have the most attractive website in the world, but if you can&#39;t drive traffic to your site, you&#39;ll never see a penny.</p> <p>Fourth, you need to find a great product.

The main function of nail is protection and it also helps for a firm grip for holding articles. It consists of a strong relatively flexible keratinous nail plate originating from the nail matrix. Under the nail plate there is a soft tissue called nail bed. Between the skin and nail plate there is a nail fold or cuticle. Normal healthy nail is slight pink in colour and the surface is convex from side to side. Finger nails grow 1 cm in three months and toe nails take 24 months for the same.</p> <p><strong>Importance of nails in disease diagnosis:</strong></p> <p>The colour, appearance, shape and nature of the nails give some information about the general health and hygiene of a person. Nails are examined as a routine by all doctors to get some clues about underlying diseases. Just looking at nails we can make out the hygiene of a person. The abnormal nail may be congenital or due to some diseases. The cause for changes in the nail extend from simple reasons to life threatening diseases. Hence the examination by a doctor is essential for diagnosis .Some abnormal findings with probable causes are discussed here for general awareness.</p> <p><strong>1) Hygiene:-</strong><br /> We can make out an unhygienic nail very easily .Deposition of dirt under the distal end of nail plate can make a chance for ingestion of pathogens while eating. If nail cutting is not done properly it can result in worm troubles in children. When the worms crawl in the anal orifice children will scratch which lodges the ova of worms under the nails and will be taken in while eating. Prominent nail can also complicate a skin disease by habitual scratching. Sharp nails in small kids are a real danger because small wounds can injure others when they do feet kicking or hand waving.</p> <p><strong>2) Colour of the nails:-</strong><br /> a) Nails become pale in anaemia.<br /> b) Opaque white discolouration (leuconychia) is seen in chronic renal failure and nephrotic syndrome.<br /> c) Whitening is also seen in hypoalbuminaemia as in cirrhosis and kidney disorders.<br /> d) Drugs like sulpha group, anti-malarial and antibiotics etc. can produce discolouration in the nails.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<br /> e) Fungal infection causes black discolouration.<br /> f) In pseudomonas infection nails become black or green.<br /> g) Nail bed infarction occurs in vasculitis especially in SLE and polyarthritis.<br /> h) Red dots are seen in nails due to splinter haemorrhages in subacute bacterial endo Carditis, rheumatoid arthritis, trauma, collagen vascular diseases.<br /> i) Blunt injury produces haemorrhage and causes blue/black discolouration.<br /> &nbsp;j) Nails become brown in kidney diseases and in decreased adrenal activity.<br /> k) In Wilson&rsquo;s disease blue colour in semicircle appears in the nail.<br /> l) When the blood supply decreases nail become yellow .In jaundice and psoriasis also nail become yellowish.<br /> m) In yellow nail syndrome all nails become yellowish with pleural effusion.</p> <p><strong>3) Shape of nails:-</strong><br /> a) Clubbing: Here tissues at the base of nails are thickened and the angle between the nail base and the skin is obliterated. The nail becomes more convex and the fingertip becomes bulbous and looks like an end of a drumstick. When the condition becomes worse the nail looks like a parrot beak.<br /> Causes of clubbing:- Congenital Injuries, Severe chronic cyanosis, Lung diseases like empyema, bronchiectasis, carcinoma of bronchus and pulmonary tuberculosis.<br /> Abdominal diseases like Crohn&#39;s disease, polyposis of colon, ulcerative colitis, liver cirrhosis etc.<br /> Heart diseases like tetralogy of Fallot, subacute bacterial endocarditis and etc.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<br /> b) Koilonychias:- Here the nails become concave like a spoon. This condition is seen in iron deficiency anaemia. In this condition the nails become thin, soft and brittle. The normal convexity will be replaced by concavity.<br /> c) Longitudinal ridging is seen in Raynaud&rsquo;s disease.<br /> d) Cuticle becomes ragged in dermatomyositis.<br /> e) Nail fold telangiectasia is a sign in dermatomyositis, systemic sclerosis and SLE.</p> <p><strong>4) Structure and consistency:-</strong><br /> a) Fungal infection of nail causes discolouration, deformity, hypertrophy and abnormal brittleness.<br /> b) Thimble pitting of nail is characteristic of psoriasis, acute eczema and <a href="" target="_blank">alopecia areata</a>.<br /> c) The inflammation of cuticle or nail fold is called paronychia.<br /> d) Onycholysis refers to the detachment of the nail from the nail bed, usually starting at the tip and/or sides. The separation of nail bed seen in psoriasis, infection and after taking <a href="" target="_blank">Tetracyclines</a>.<br /> e) Destruction of nail is seen in lichen planus, epidermolysis bullosa.<br /> f) Missing nail is seen in nail patella syndrome. It is a hereditary disease.<br /> g) Nails become brittle in Raynaud&rsquo;s disease and gangrene.<br /> h) Falling of nail is seen in fungal infection, psoriasis and thyroid diseases.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> <strong>5) Growth:-</strong><br /> Reduction in oxygen in your blood supply affects the growth of nails and all nail problems. Nail growth is also affected in severe illness. When the disease disappears the growth starts again resulting in formation of transverse ridges. These lines are called Beau&#39;s lines and are healpful to date the onset of illness.</p> <p><strong>6) The importance of Oxygen</strong><br /> Oxygen provides life and energy to every living cell. If poor eating habits, drinking, pollution, toxins, drugs or lack of exercise abuse your own human systems of body, mind and spirit. When your cells and your genetics are deprived of vital oxygen the immune system becomes weakened.</p> <p>Low oxygen levels are undesirable because they affect the body&#39;s metabolism and may even cause it to manufacture improper chemicals and/or give rise to various health problems. <a href="" target="_blank">Cellfood</a> is only one of the exceptional products offered at Nucell Canada, take a further look at our products that allows for nail health, anti-aging, vitality and longevity.</p> <p>Stay tuned for more articles later</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Article by Val Walters</p> <p><a href="">Resolve Beyond Neurology</a>&nbsp;</p> Tue, 06 Oct 2015 13:33:36 -0600 If you want to begin holistic living, start by full body, mind, and spirit detox. <p><img alt="Market Hive marketing tools" src="" style="float:left; height:150px; width:150px" /><strong>Is there a Full Detox Plan for Body, Mind, and Spirit?</strong></p> <p>If you want to begin holistic living, start by full body, mind, and spirit detox.</p> <p>The body has its own natural way of detoxification, but if the toxins are too much, it needs some help. There are a lot of detox products available almost anywhere in the world.</p> <p>Detox products aid the body in the detox process making you feel more revitalized and energized. There are also other benefits of body detox including healthier skin and normal bowel movements.</p> <p>Spirituality plays a vital role in your daily life. If you believe in God, you know that there are certain things that you should and should not do. Holistic living is gaining more popularity these days. It means that a person should live a healthy and spiritual life.</p> <p>People with strong faith in God will likely say that a healthy life is worth nothing if your spirituality is at its lowest. These two aspects should always complement each other to achieve full body detox.</p> <p>Spirituality is also one aspect in a person&#39;s life that should also be given equal attention. Prayer is the most familiar form of exhibiting spirituality. It is part of almost any religion found in any part of the world.</p> <p>Most people will say that you should live your life to the fullest, and so why not achieve a full body detox? Detox or detoxification is a process to eliminate all the harmful toxins that have accumulated inside the body. The body, mind and spirit go hand in hand, why? The body will not function (or even not exist) without the mind, and the spirit.</p> <p>It is a sad fact that many people have very little time to ponder about their spiritual aspect of life. They are too busy looking for ways to stay healthy, paying the bills, making more money, and meet work deadlines. This may be so, because people have a choice. They can freely choose how to live their lives, as they see it fit.</p> <p>The mind should also undergo detoxification. You must free your mind from all negative thoughts. There is the so-called Psychoneuroimmunology that has been in existence for many years now in the eastern culture; it believes that the mind and body are linked to each other.</p> <p>Patients who undergo this treatment are taught how to focus the mind, and visualize the flowing healing-energy into the body&#39;s organs which needs healing. If you are successful in doing this treatment, the healing process is said to move at a faster rate. Visualization is the key to unite the mind and body, and achieve results. You can only do this if you get help from the professionals who are into this kind of mind detox. Of course, there are also other types of mind detox that you can make use. Choose one that you think will work best for you.</p> <p>There is no established &#39;right&#39; way to pray. In fact, you can pray anywhere you like, any position you like, just as long as it comes from the heart and you have deep faith to your creator. All you need to do is to find the right way of praying, one that will work best for you.</p> <p>It is then possible to get full body, mind, and spirit detox and these are just simple ways. Getting a professional help can greatly help you in achieving real and tangible results.</p> <p>Article by:</p> <p>Brian Walters - Board of Directors and Alpha Founder.</p> <p><a href="" target="_blank">Market Promotion Site</a></p> <p><a href="" target="_blank">Brian Walters Market Hive </a></p> Mon, 05 Oct 2015 13:50:27 -0600 A practical approach to My Resolve Beyond Neurology <p><img alt="Resolve Beyond Neurology" src="" style="float:left; height:100px; width:125px" /><strong>A practical approach to My Resolve Beyond Neurology</strong></p> <p>My Resolve Beyond Neurology uses a practical approach to resolving conflicts that can affect your innate systems and is a three-part positive feedback system. These innate systems I am talking about include but are not limited to; breathing, physical movement, thought processes, emotional stress resolution and so on.</p> <p>See: <a href=""></a></p> <p>The 3 part positive feedback system mentioned above takes the guesswork out of determining firstly what the real problem that ails us is, secondly, confirms the treatment and thirdly it validates the expected result of the treatment.</p> <p>Resolve Beyond Neurology System training helps find the conflict(s) in neurology. The system is simply part of my &quot;Resolve Toolkit&quot; which was (and still is) developed and taught by me as part of my Resolve beyond neurology training program.</p> <p>The way a person recovers from an injury, or a conflict, or some emotional stress should be a non-event in one&rsquo;s life. In other words, getting better should be automatic response in the right way, just like when you cut finger slightly, it mends itself by itself. It would be awesome if other traumas in life like, emotional stress, physical injuries and conflicts resolved themselves by themselves in the same way.</p> <p>However, during the healing process, if these emotional stresses, injuries and conflicts are putting some unwanted negative stimulus in our life, then this influence may begin running or at least supplying a strong influence over our innate system.</p> <p>So instead of oneself being in control of our lives, a vicious cycle starts and then perpetuates itself with results in often increasing our symptoms and our illness. So you limp continues or your shoulder continues aching and we seem powerless to erase or correct this ongoing situation.</p> <p>So how in reality does this happen? Now each muscle and nerve in our body ultimately connects to our brain through our internal electrical and nervous systems. The pain sensors trigger and begin possibly influencing our behaviours, our structure and our emotions. This then could possibly be causing many undesired influence on our daily life in a negative way.</p> <p>The way we learnt to walk, run, play sport and so on is because our brain is constantly running &quot;programs&quot;, signalling our muscles to do these things. Different &quot;programs&quot; run causing different movements that we want to make. These programs are very sophisticated enabling us when we walk for example, to also see, hear, keep our balance, talk laugh and so on.</p> <p>Let me finish this article aby way of an example of conflict resolution and how using my Resolve Beyond Neurology can help.</p> <p>Conflict Resolution Example:&nbsp; You see a person who should be doing say accountancy in life, it&rsquo;s what he is most suited to as all the tests he did at school to determine a possible career path showed he would be a great accountant.</p> <p>But he is doing a plumbers job. You say &ldquo;why aren&rsquo;t you doing accountancy&rdquo;.&nbsp; He says, &ldquo;Because my father said I&rsquo;d never be any good as an accountant&rdquo; - And he believed his father and not the school career tests he did! He now &ldquo;the plumber&rdquo; has an instant conflict that perhaps could go on for all his life, and this could make him ill.</p> <p>Using the Beyond Neurology approach in client care can highlight how these conflicts can happen. We need to be aware and look for these conflicts and refocus to find the best solution.</p> <p>Conflict Example:&nbsp; A person having trouble learning - shows they have had a conflict between what they want to learn and what they have had to learn. A person&rsquo;s truth is always with them. We can&rsquo;t teach them their own truth only they can do that.</p> <p>But what is it that is stopping them from discovering and expressing their own truth?
