Rising Oil Price a Boon for the US Economy

According to the investors, the high-ceilinged oil price has come up with positive news for the U.S. economy. The price rose because of the fact that the private sector added almost 111,000 jobs in October 2011. The Automatic Data Processing reported that the service industries got plenty of benefits.

As a result of soaring oil prices, Benchmark crude rose by 32 cents to end the day at $92.51 per barrel in New York, while Brent crude lost 20 cents to finish at $109.34 a barrel in London. After a two-day meeting of the Federal Reserve, which doesn’t announce any new policy, the prices on oil may slip a little bit.

The studies depicted that the decision taken by the Fed has a greater impact on oil prices. Last year the Fed decision supported the prices of oil as well drained $600 billion into a bond-buying program. Hence, such things influenced the currency and commodity markets. As a result of alteration in oil price, Benchmark crude mounted 20% higher in 2010.

Despite the fact that consumers are ready to spend more, it is a very difficult task to manage downside risk. Hence, the economy is losing its importance on the commodity market. If the economy stays standstill, then the central bank assures to take a leap step.

As mentioned by the Energy Information Administration, the prices on U.S. oil and gasoline climbed up in the last week in October 2011 because of less demand for oil. Another point to note down here is that the demand for distillate supplies that include diesel and heating oil dropped enormously. However, the demand for distillate supplies, especially in foreign countries resulted to increase in export.

The demand for diesel is escalating because farmers require the fuel for harvesting. In North America and U.S. industries, many energy companies are expanding oil and natural gas drilling operations.

The retail price on diesel has increased 80.1 cents higher per gallon. Its price will keep on rising because of the existing market scenario. According to, Wright Express and Oil Price Information Service, gasoline prices fell less than a penny to a national average of $3.432 per gallon. The price of gasoline is soaring at $4 per gallon. However, a gallon of regular oil is available at reasonable rate.

According to the energy trading, the heating oil lost 3.72 cents to end at $3.0007 per gallon. Gasoline futures finished at $2.6272 per gallon. Natural gas lost 3.2 cents to end at $3.749 per 1,000 cubic feet.

The History of Printer Ink Cartridges

With the introduction of the inkjet printer and printer ink cartridge in 1984, the task of printing your documents and changing printer ink cartridges became more convenient, reliable and cleaner than the previous methods of changing ribbons or inserting a toner cartridge.

Prior to 1984, the ink delivery systems were not as dependable as they are now. The inkjet system replaced the old dot matrix method, which required changing a ribbon. It wasn’t long before the printer industry began conceptualizing a new ink delivery technique, including the drop on demand method. Several companies were the driving forces behind developing the inkjet technology, and by 1990 the method was widely accepted. Today it is the method of choice for printing requirements, and will print both black and white documents as well as color graphics and photos.

The quality is excellent, thanks to the development of printer ink cartridges. It is possible to print on many different sizes and types of paper, fabric, film, etc. These printers are used in businesses, in schools and the homes of millions of people worldwide.

Each printer uses a specific printer ink cartridge, most often one each of black and color. Each cartridge is given an identifying number and lists the model number of each printer in which it can be used. While each printer manufacturer recommends its own brand of printer ink cartridge, it is possible to refill the cartridge yourself, or purchase a refilled, remanufactured or a compatible cartridge.

There are two types of refilled cartridges: You can do it yourself with a kit that allows you to refill your own cartridge. Refill kits are available at a very low price and are sometimes the choice of those who don’t mind doing the filling in order to save money. The other alternative is to buy a refilled cartridge from a manufacturer. This method involves drilling, filling and sealing an empty cartridge.

A remanufactured cartridge is an original printer ink cartridge that has been taken apart and outfitted with ink and new parts if necessary. It is then inspected and tested before being placed in the marketplace to re-sell. The workmanship in these cartridges is usually guaranteed against defects during the life of the cartridge. The lifetime is generally the same as the original, they are safe to use in all printers, and the warranty on your printer will not be affected. The cost is lower than the original.

Another kind of cartridge that has evolved in recent years is the “compatible” cartridge. Simply put, it is a cartridge that is built to the same specifications as those of the original manufacturer and is generally cheaper than the original. It is also guaranteed against defects during its lifetime.

Inkjet printers using printer ink cartridges have a bright future ahead, thanks to their capability to produce high-quality printed material quickly and inexpensively. The manufacturer’s printer ink cartridge is one option, and the use of alternative printer ink cartridges is another option. When shopping for printer ink cartridges, always buy from a reputable dealer. A huge inventory of hundreds of types of cartridges can also be found by shopping on the Internet, which is a convenient, safe and reliable method of finding the best deals on printer ink cartridges.

Optimize Windows 7 Startup Performance

If you have been suffering from Windows performance problems recently to the point that it is adversely impacting your productivity, then you may want to seriously consider taking the steps necessary in order to optimize Windows 7 startup performance. You would think that after seven releases of the most popular, best selling operating system of all time, that it would be an operating system that would require very little in the way of optimization and tuning. But alas, such is not the case.

As a matter of fact, when you think about it, today’s modern cars still need to be optimized, tuned, and maintained, in order to run in tip top shape, don’t they? If today’s modern cars still need to undergo the rigors of routine preventative maintenance from time to time, then today’s modern computers are by no means an exception to this rule.

Think about it for a moment. With all of the software that you install or download onto your computer or with all of the hardware that you connect to your computer from time to time, each and every little thing is bound to take its toll on your operating system, slowly bogging it down to the point where your computer begins to exhibit signs of performance degradation.

And nowhere is this performance degradation more pronounced than during the boot up of your computer. If your computer is taking an unacceptably long time to load, then you will want to take the measures necessary in order to optimize Windows 7 startup performance.

Do you have any programs configured to automatically launch as soon as you power up your computer, or as soon as you log onto your Windows account?

Do you have any services configured to run in the background which would launch automatically upon startup of your computer?

Even if the answer to the above two questions is no and you have ruled these out, one thing you will want to check for is for the presence of viruses and / or spyware. Believe it or not, spyware can remain hidden in your operating system by means of stealth, and you would have no way of ever knowing that it is running. This spyware can tax your system performance without your knowledge.

The good news is that in order to optimize Windows 7 startup performance, we can rely on software programs that are designed for that purpose: automating the process of streamlining the startup experience. A typical Windows optimization software utility will collect all of the information it can find from your system about the programs that are configured to start, and it will present this to you, for you to decide what to disable and what to allow, at start up.

Also, as alluded to above, it is important that you run antispyware and antivirus software on your computer at all times. This will keep any unauthorized, rogue processes from running on your machine at boot time that could be not only slowing down your startup experience but also spying on and collecting data from your machine unawares.

Active Learning 5 Ways to Chain an Elephant

Active Learning and Elephants.
Using math games for active learning is like trying to chain an elephant. Let me put this is perspective. You can’t chain an adult elephant because they are simply too powerful. They would simply bust the chain with a single foot movement.

You must start when elephants are small.
A small chain is placed around the foot of a baby elephant and, like difficult students, they struggle and fight the chain.
They soon learn they can not bust through the chain and resign to the fact that the chain won’t hurt them.
Using math games for successful active learning when relief teaching, is a little like chaining elephants.
You take little steps but make allowance for attempt at breaking the chain.
When you first use these games, the kids might struggle. Active learning will certainly be active but usually not much learning occurs at the start.

The difficult kids, especially, will try to circumvent the game and not participate in the learning.
Like little elephants, they will fight the learning process but have heaps of fun with the games.
You may even question why you chose it in the first place. But it changes quickly.

So why choose math games?

Elephants are eminently suited to working in their environment. Using math games for active learning is the same.
In the appropriate relief teaching environment, they are great tools, especially for difficult students.

The kids are in charge of where the learning goes and grows – the very definition of active learning.
These games are the source of active learning because kids feel, and they actually are, in control.
How their math learning evolves depends on the success of the game. So how do you make games successful when relief teaching?

1. Make the learning open-ended.
There needs to be a correct answer but vary the learning processes by which students get there. For example in 41 Math Games, the student can vary the operations and, using the brackets, vary the groupings by which they arrive at the answer.

2. Provide controls that don’t stifle active learning.
There are a number of options that make learning exciting. If there is a way to beat the system, kids will find it. Keep the rules of the math games simple enough to provide a structure but flexible enough to provide a challenge.

For example, have a template but these can be completed by using the luck of the draw and the math choices.

3. Have a winner.
Kids will often forget the purpose is to explore math learning. They will attempt to beat their opponent to a pulp to the Rocky Theme. Have a winner so that there is a purpose to the game.

4. Make the processes easy but the mastery difficult.
A teacher needs an activity that they can use a couple of times at least. Effective math games will have a skill that is easy to use but take a while to master. You need several variations for each game so skills learnt in one game can be applied to another.

5. Use activities that suit all learners.

Even difficult students love math games. They love the competition and also the less intrusive nature of the learning. This is a bonus for relief teaching. Reluctant learners are supported by the shared active learning of the game especially those included in 41 Math Games.

Reviewing Homework In High School Classes

Setting homework has no real value unless the teacher has a regular review process. Without this review, students will not see homework as important because they feel that the teacher doesn’t see it as important enough to review.

Homework is designed to consolidate learning that has occurred in class. What your review does is to further consolidate that learning through the recency/frequency aspect of learning.
Below is how I went about reviewing homework. First, there was my preparation.

I instructed my students to write down any questions that arose as they did their homework on the page where their homework was done, ready for them to ask during the next period’s homework review.

Personally, I would review the homework tasks beforehand, deciding what I needed to emphasise or reteach (if necessary). I might also prepare answers in hard copy form if I deemed it an advantage for my students.

Now, here is what I usually did at the start of the next lesson in reviewing homework.

• I would check to see who had done their homework. (If students had not done or been able to do their homework, they were to see me before the lesson to discuss the issue).
• I would look around at the rest of the class observing body language that might suggest that others had not done their homework.
• If there were signs, then I would have all the students turn their books to the front so I could check. (This emphasised that I was serious about homework). I would note these defaulters and talk to them in their time.
• Next, I would ask if there were any questions from the homework. These I would answer plus any follow-up questions.
• I would model my answers to the class, i.e. I would do this verbally and on the board. I might later provide a hard copy of my ‘model’ answer.
• Following this, I would discuss any other issues I felt were important to stress about this topic, e.g. misconceptions, frequent student errors and so on.
• Next, after setting the work to be done by the class for this lesson, I would work with those students who say ‘they don’t understand’. Here, I would ask them where they ‘got lost’ and proceed, from that point, to reteach the topic to them to create the best understanding I could for these students.
• It is important to have a follow-up for the defaulters. A first step for them might be to do their homework during the next break and bring it to you at a specified time. Consistent defaulters might incur more serious consequences. I kept a diary record of all defaulters. This was useful at parent teacher interviews and at reporting time.
• Lastly, I never believed that students had no problems with their homework. I know from experience which areas would give students problems. Therefore, I would ask students questions in those areas as a review of the homework. I would highlight any other important points before I went on with the teaching program.

Remember:

• The review of homework is as important as the students doing that homework and,
• Homework is a component in the process of learning study skills. That is important for future academic success.

ACHIEVING THE MAXIMUM POTENTIAL LIFE

ACHIEVING THE MAXIMUM POTENTIAL LIFE

Everyone longed for a better future; successful in your career,
household and social relations, but we often hit by various
constraints. And it was the biggest obstacle to ourselves.
Through his work, Joel Osteen challenges us to get out of the mindset that
narrow and begin to think in a new paradigm.

There are 7 steps that we achieve maximum potential life:

* The first step is expanding horizons. You should see life
with the eyes of faith, look at yourself being bolted to a higher level.
You must have a clear mental picture of what you will achieve.
This picture should be a part of you, in your mind, in your conversation,
seep into your subconscious mind, in deeds and in each
aspects of life.

* Step two is to develop a healthy self image. That means you have to
underlying picture yourself on what God says about you.
Achieving the goal of your success depends on how you look
yourself and how you feel about yourself. Because it will determine
level of confidence in the act. The fact that you will not be
never shot higher than what you think about yourself

* Step three is to discover the power behind your thoughts and words.
The main target is the mind of an enemy attack. He knew if he
managed to control and manipulate what you think, then he
be managed to control and manipulate the entire life.
Thoughts determine the behavior, attitude and self-image. Mind set goals.
The Bible warns us to always keep our minds.

* The fourth step is the release of the past, let it go …
You may have lost everything that no one should experience
in this life. If you want to live in victory, you can not use
trauma of the past as an excuse for making bad choices today.
You must have the courage not to make the past as a reason for your bad attitude
during this time, or justify your actions to not forgive someone.

* Step five is to find strength in the worst circumstances even
We have to be: “I may have dropped a few times in my life, but
but I will continue to stay down there. “We all face
challenges in life. We all have experienced things that come
attack us. We may be imposed from the outside, but the key to life
victory is to learn how to rise again from the inside.

* Step six is ​​to give with joy. One of the biggest challenges
we face is the temptation to live selfish.
For we know that God does want the best for us,
He wants us to prosper, enjoy the grace and more that He is in store for us,
but sometimes we forget and get caught up in selfish behavior.
Indeed, we will experience more joy than I ever imagined
if we want to share life with others.

* Step seven is to choose to be happy today. You do not have to wait
until all your personality  resolved. You do not have to put off happiness
until you reach all of your target. God wants you to be happy any condition,
now!
