Distance Learning Homeschool Curriculum For Autistic Students

Many families that include children with autism, autism spectrum disorder (ASD), or Asperger’s Syndrome make the choice to homeschool their children. They can make the choice for a variety of very personal reasons, but the majority of families choose homeschooling because it provides a safe environment for their children. It allows them to teach their children according to their unique learning styles. Homeschooling also allows families to create a curriculum that challenges their children and offers them variety that they might not get in a traditional school environment.

If you are considering homeschool your child with ASD, Asperger’s or autism, consider a distance learning school as the core of your homeschool curriculum. An accredited distance learning homeschool will be able to accommodate the learning needs of your child. An assessment will be made of your child, and a learning profile will be constructed. If you child with ASD has trouble with auditory processing, the curriculum he will follow at a distance learning school can be very visually based.

The majority of students attending an online high school are involved in a college prep curriculum. The distance learning homeschool will help you develop a curriculum that meets the graduation requirements, but also one that interests and challenges your child. Many children with ASD have specialized interests. Some are interested in the sciences, some in math or history.

Because distance-learning homeschools have the ability to tailor their curriculum to meet the special needs of your child with Asperger’s or ASD, many families choose to enroll their children. A distance learning high school will have many specialists on staff to help guide your child and help him choose the courses that will best suit his needs and interests.

Are You Popular Enough On YouTube?

YouTube is probably the most famous website for uploading and sharing videos to people all over the globe. Users of this site can upload, share and view videos. While most people are contented with just watching other people's videos, a lot of people are also making YouTube their primary career site. Many people have actually become known through their videos, and some, I must say are already rising artists, such as the Asian beauty Marie Digby.

How then are you expected to get popular on YouTube? How do you get the number of views that you desire? I know how difficult this is. You can upload a video of you and get severely anxious if people would like your video or not. Comments do matter, and they will determine your popularity and how well your video is created. In this article, I am going to provide you with 3 tips on how to get popular on YouTube. This is not at all an assurance, but they are worth a try. Here they are:

1.) Content

Your video content will significantly determine your number of views. Before posting a video, ask yourself these following questions: 1) Is my video relevant to many people ?; 2.) Is my video entertaining ?; And 3.) Is my video of poor or high quality?

Aside from these questions, you should also consider your field of expertise. If for example you are a good singer, then give your audience a great sample of your singing talent. If you are a dancer, then show the world that you are an extraordinary one. If you have multiple talents such as playing the guitar and piano and you also know how to sing, then show it. It's the best way to lead a viewer to subscribe to your channel. They want to see more of your videos when they just can not get enough. Stick to your talent. Do not try so hard in other fields that you are certainly not good at.

2.) Title

This is the second most important part in uploading a video. You have to compose a catchy title. Make sure that you use words that are highly searchable in YouTube by users. This way, users will also get to browse through your videos which have similar titles to their intended videos.

3.) Comments

Leaving comments in other people's channel is also effective. Just make sure that the channel you are visiting is a person having similarities with the videos you are offering. Let's take for example a popular guitar tutor in YouTube. People viewing his / her page are most probably also interested in guitars. Once they see your comment there and see that you are also offering guitar lessons, there is a high chance that they also want to see your videos. …

Penis Health Improves Dramatically With Shea Butter

If you suffer from dry or irritated skin on the foreskin or shaft of the penis, Shea Butter is a potent topical product that may help. Shea butter is the vegetable fat extracted from the nut of the African Shea Tree (Vitellaria paradoxa). Used for hundreds of years throughout Sub-Saharan countries for its skin healing, moisturizing and decongestant properties, Shea Butter is now industrially extracted for use in cosmetics and skin products worldwide. Unlike many other pharmaceutical products though, it causes very little or no irritation, promotes tissue health and skin nutrition long-term, and may resolve some skin conditions. If you suffer from nut allergies, use Shea Butter products with extreme caution.

Bioactive Against Skin Disorders

It is a medicinal product which may be beneficial to penis health, especially if a man is suffering from any inflammatory or pathogenic skin conditions. Between 3% to 10% of Shea Butter contains bioactive fractions that have therapeutic properties when applied to human tissues. While more research is still needed on the chemicals in Shea Butter, scientists have so far identified catechins (the same antioxidants found in green tea), vitamin E, triterpene alcohols that reduce inflammation, and lupeol which reduces enzymatic actions causing skin aging. A recent study from Nihon University in Japan confirmed the anti-inflammatory, anti-viral and anti-cancer properties of Shea Butter. If a man is diagnosed with eczema, psoriasis, itching, dry skin or an infection, it may be beneficial as a complementary topical treatment.

Vitamin E

When protecting penis health, nutrients such as vitamin E play an essential role. Vitamin E, also known as tocopherol, is found in high quantities in it and is responsible for some of its antioxidant, anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties. When levels of Vitamin E are adequate in the tissues, skin cells on the penis are more resistant to UV-A and UV-B rays which penetrate clothing, signal transmission between nerves in the penis occur more quickly, and blood flowing to the penis travels easily during arousal. One recent study has linked vitamin E as a possible complementary therapy for male erectile dysfunction, confirming that vitamin E is an important vitamin for both health and pleasure. Using Shea Butter and products containing Shea Butter will help to enhance vitamin E levels in the body and in the local tissues of the male organ.

Skin Integrity

It improves the look and feel of the penis skin. Dehydration, poor nutrition, eczema, dry rubbing, excessive masturbation and vigorous sex all contribute to dry skin on the foreskin and shaft of the penis. When the skin does become rough and irritated, it is one product that may help restore skin moisture and strength. The Shea nut is a rich source of triglycerides, such as stearic and oleic acid, which are softening and moisturizing to the outer layers of the skin. Once absorbed into the deeper tissues, these triglycerides help to improve the feel of the skin on the penis, and improve sexual pleasure. Both the cosmetic and the pharmaceutical industry have recognised it’s …

Lying on Your Resume Could Be the Best Thing You Could Do For Your Career

Have you ever been passed over for a job despite the fact you KNEW you could have done the job in a stellar fashion? Are you frustrated because you never got a college degree yet do the EXACT same job as someone who does and you get paid thousands of dollars less? Have you been hampered from moving up in the professional world because you lacked the "right" job title despite the fact your employment experience was exactly what the job description listed? If this describes you then sometimes it's time you wrote a fake resume.

As an executive recruiter (headhunter) for many years I saw first hand how that was played by the "rules" more often then not lost the best jobs to those that lied on their resumes. I'm not talking about a bit of embellishment, but outright lies such as mentioning degrees never earned or positions never held. According to the Society of Human Resource Managers over 53% of all job applicants lie to some extent on their resumes. Over 70% of all college students said they would lie to get a job. The higher the salary, the more often candidates lie. The web site http://www.fakeresume.com was started as a way of teaching people how and why they are unknowingling losing jobs to those that lie.

Why write a fake resume? There are many legitimate reasons for writing a fake resume. Perhaps your current job title did not properly convey all the duties or responsibilities that you had. Maybe you were unemployed for a period of time. Everyone knows that does not look good on your resume. Did you assist a manager who was incompetent and you made them look good on the job? Better yet, YOU did their job but for whatever reason, because because of nepotism you could never get promoted to their job. Out of frustration you quit but now you CAN NOT put that fool's job title as your own despite the fact that you did his / her job! Worse yet due to jealousy or animosity because you quit and now for the first time they have to do their own work they will not give you a good reference.

The bottom line is if you know you can do the job, then why should not you fluff up your resume a bit? We all know a great deal of people who have held jobs that they were not qualified to have. Yet there they were day in and day out collecting big paychecks while other people corrected their frequent mistakes.
Can this be considered lying? Perhaps, but do not you deserve a shot a job you know you can do?

What about your prospective employer's honesty? How open and honest are they to their employees and future employees? Anyone who's read the newspaper or watched the evening news has witnessed the lack of integrity that runs rampant in today's corporate world. In my experience very few employers will fully reveal any …

Hip Hop Music Is Timeless: Do not Put an Expiration Date on Your Favorite Music

Music is an art and Hip Hop music is not only an art but a culture. Hip Hop artists should strive to make their music timely. Think of artists like the O'Jays, The Rolling Stones, and The Isley Brothers. They have been making music for many, many years and what if someone would have told them they could only make music until they were 25 years old?

What if the world put a time limit on how long we could create art? Can you imagine Eddie Levert doing something other than making good music? What about Chuck D from Public Enemy or KRS-ONE? I can still enjoy a good show by De La Soul any day of the week.

These artists have been around for years and they are true to their craft. They put out good music consistently and they do not let anyone tell them when to stop doing what they love.

That love for what they are doing is the key ingredient to a successful career. When you start making music just to make some money or to satisfy a record label or whatever ever, then you are on the way out. The people with long careers are passionate about their music. They are passionate about their fans. They are in touch with their fans and their fans are in touch with them.

Their music is not about winning awards or fancy marketing and promotions tactics. It is about making good music. Music they can be proud of … music that will stand the test of time and create a mental shift in the mind of the listener.

We will always remember the first time we heard a song from one of our favorite artists and when we hear it now it makes us feel a certain way. That is what artists should strive to do with their music. Then, the music will be memorable and timeless!

So what is the formula for making timeless music? It can be summed up in the following steps:

  1. Have a passion for your music
  2. Find a way to record and distribute your music
  3. Promote your music to as many people as possible
  4. Give great live performances
  5. Repeat Steps 1-4

Using this formula, any artist, Hip Hop or otherwise, should be able to record and distribute their own brand of timeless music as often as they want to. So what are you waiting on? Now is the time to get started creating a legacy for yourself and your music. …

Will Confidence Help To Make New Friends In College?

A while back, I was at a house party. I arrived with some friends. On the way to the house party we ran into another crew of people. The leader of that crew was very confident. He was louder than everyone, he kept egging on some of the guys in my crew just for the sake of causing drama. It was all in good fun. He put all of us into a good mood.

When we all got to the house, the party was not very exciting. Some people were dancing in a comatose fashion by themselves, one or two other people were "grinding", but that was it. Our crew of people were more excited to get to the party than the people who were in the party.

This confident guy I spoke about grabbed the cutest girl he could find. Dragged her to the dance floor, and immediately started "daggering" her. If you do not know what this is, it's a Jamaican dance move. Look it up on YouTube right now, and you'll understand exactly why everyone at the party immediately amped up their excitement by at least 1000%.

I was taken off my guard, (I rarely expect other guys to out do me at the party), so I was the second guy to grab a cute girl and we took the boring party, and turned it into one of the most electrifying bash I've seen in University.

When people are around someone with confidence, they feel relieved. It's like they have permission to do the things that they wanted to do in the first place. This is literally what people me when they say, "He was the life of the party." Without that confident guy, people would not feel like they had permission do have the fun that they were having.

People are silently looking to be lead, that's why when you have confidence, people follow you. There is a direct correlation between confidence and leadership. As the party went on, I noticed that EVERYONE in the room was looking at my confident friend. If he did something, that meant that they could too … However, while everyone was looking at my friend friend, he never noticed them, he only focused on himself. Confident people have the ability to forget outside circumstances and focus on only on themselves. They can do what the famous spiritual author Eckhart Tolle calls, "be present".

Being present, allows you to have that full confidence that other people admire you for. It is the opposite of being self conscious – or caring what other people think. Spiritual leaders have all sorts of weird esoteric methods for being present. I will teach you how, without getting to complicated.

Confidence and insecure are the opposite ends of the same spectrum. Do not try to get from one end to the other. This is too difficult. When you feel insecure at a party, just try to get to the half way point of the spectrum. That …

Herbal Remedies – Ancient Wisdom Now Tested By Science

Herbal remedies have been known to man for thousands of years, right from early civilization, though it is impossible to put a date on their discovery. The oldest records of herbs being used as medicines date as far back as 2800 BC; these records were discovered in China.

It is well known that people belonging to Persia, India, China, Egypt and even the Red Indians (America) used herbal extracts to treat the ailing members of their community. Scientists also have evidence that animals, especially apes, know about the medicinal properties of some plants and therefore, scientists reason that herbs could have been used as medicine even before the first human evolved on our planet.

After humans discovered the medical values ​​of plants, herbal medicine became part of folklore and it spread by word of mouth and other antiquated means of communication through the centuries. In the 15th century, the printing press was invented, which helped in spreading the popularity of herbal medicine – herbal medicine recipes were printed on paper and passed around; naturally, they caught on like wildfire. By the 17th century herbal medicine was all over the place. Then allopathic medicines caught on and proponents of the allopathic chain of thought rubbished herbal medicine and claimed that it was too weak as compared to the stronger and effective allopathic medicines.

In 1985 the World Health Organization (WHO) was of the view that herbal medicines are an important constituent of health-care. Even today, debate rages on over the efficacy of herbal medicines. Here are a few herbs which natural healing properties have been scientifically validated:

Ephedrine was an early asthma drug that was derived from the herb, Ephedra.

The plant Meadowsweet contains salicyclic acid and polyphenols – salicyclic is related to aspirin and polyphenols protect the stomach.

St. John's Wort is known to be effective in treating depression.

The plant, Echinacea, has been proven to be effective in boosting the immune system.

Garlic is recognized for its effective cholesterol-lowering qualities.

The goodness of ginger helps protect against heart disease and fight cholesterol too.

Digoxin, a heart medicine, comes from the foxglove plant; Quinine, used to treat malaria, comes from the bark of the Cinchona tree; and, Morphine, the painkiller, comes from the poppy plant.

Although herbal medicines are effective, doctors prefer to stick to the regular medicines because there are many unknown quantities of herbs that still need to be known. Only time and effort will tell how and when the medicinal properties of herbs are fully understood. …

Commercial Real Estate Sales and Leasing As a Career Change

In every property market around the world there is an abundance of residential real estate. It’s not hard to understand how to sell residential property given that we all live in houses and know the local area in which we live.

On that foundation you have lots of real estate agents selling and renting residential property in all markets and locations. The same agents however are not always as skillful when it comes to commercial property sales and leasing. Here is why.

The commercial real estate agent has to have a sound knowledge and skill base in things such as these:

  1. Property performance and analysis
  2. Return on investment, capitalisation, summation, and comparable price analysis methods
  3. Rental types used in the current market for different commercial properties
  4. Lease types and terms used in different lease situations
  5. Marketing methods for investment property
  6. Income generation from properties of all types
  7. Expenditure controls and benchmarks from property
  8. Tenant mix strategies together with anchor tenant opportunities
  9. Lease documentation and strategies in different property types
  10. Vacancy analysis and minimisation as part of property performance
  11. Supply and demand for commercial property and space
  12. Tenant movement and placement
  13. Business sentiment in the local area
  14. Services and amenities required by tenants in the current market
  15. Comparable prices and rents with local properties sold or leased over the last 5 years
  16. Landlord investment requirements and strategies that can solve them
  17. Time on market for selling or leasing commercial property currently

To start a career in commercial property from a base of residential property experience, there is a reasonable amount of study required in the local market, and with the types of property that changes hands. The information is available from convenient sources such as the local existing property listings, existing agents in the region, internet, and property owners.

Importantly the reason a property owner will use a particular agent to market a commercial property for sale or for lease, centres on knowledge of the local market, market share, and experience in handling the property. If you as a real estate agent are considering changing or expanding from residential real estate property sales, then the opportunity awaits.

A career change to commercial property will take some time but the rewards are many. Choose to be the best in the market and build your skills towards that.…
