Your words are a currency

I bet you do write a lot but if you have been in one of those Facebook groups in which whenever a shady profile posts “work”. Hordes of “writers” start commenting interested. 

You look at sixty-three comments and wonder if it’s even worth commenting “interested”?

It isn’t. 

But this post isn’t about that, it’s about telling you that right now your words are a currency.

Digital property 

Websites are digital properties, it’s like owning a house or a shop. Every website needs traffic like every shop needs a steady flow of customers. 

The Navigator 

Google is the navigator, it connects the searcher to web content, how does google do that? , by search query: the little keyword people put into google’s search bar.

Google’s spiders crawl the web looking for the most unique, most relevant, and most useful content and this is where your words become a currency. That article you sold for a thousand rupees is now online and somehow it is on google’s SERP, the ten blue links. 

Let’s say they are running ads on the website, or they are selling merchandise, now all those clicks are turning into dollars. 

Bottom line, your words are a currency, without written content, there is no web.

Lesson 1

Three Kinds of Sources and Their Uses

Sources are conventionally categorized into three kinds: primary, secondary, and tertiary (think first-, second-, and third-hand). Their boundaries are fuzzy, but knowing these categories can help you conduct your research.

Consult Primary Sources for Evidence

Primary sources are “original” materials that provide you with the “raw” data or evidence you will use to develop, test, and ultimately justify your hypothesis or claim. In history, primary sources are artifacts or documents that come directly from the period you are studying: letters, diaries, objects, maps, even clothing. In literature or philosophy, your main primary sources are usually the texts you are analyzing, and your data are the words on the page. In the arts, your primary source would be the works of art you are interpreting. In social sciences, such as sociology or political science, census or survey data would also count as primary sources, as would data obtained through observation or experiment in many fields. The primary sources for those collected data are reports of original research in scholarly journals or government and commercial databases.

Read Secondary Sources to Learn from Other Researchers

Secondary sources are books, articles, papers, or reports that are based on primary sources and intended for scholarly or professional audiences. An article in a scholarly journal analyzing Alamo stories would be a secondary source for researchers working on those stories. The body of secondary sources in a field is sometimes called that field’s literature. The best secondary sources are books from reputable university presses and articles or reports that have been peer-reviewed, meaning that they were vetted by experts in the field before they were published. Secondary sources also include specialized encyclopedias and dictionaries that offer essays written by scholars in a field.

You use secondary sources for three purposes:

  1. 1. To keep up with current research. Researchers read secondary sources to keep up with the work of other researchers, to inform and refine their thinking, and to motivate their own work by adding to a published line of research.
  2. 2. To find other points of view. A research paper is not complete until the researcher acknowledges and responds to the views of others and to his readers’ predictable questions and disagreements. You can find most of those other points of view in secondary sources. What alternatives to your ideas do they offer? What evidence do they cite that you must acknowledge? Some new researchers think they weaken their case if they mention any view opposing their own. The opposite is the truth. When you acknowledge competing views, you show readers that you not only know those views but can confidently respond to them.
  3. 3. To find models for your own research and analysis. You can use secondary sources to find out not just what others have written about your topic but how they have written about it, as models for the form and style of your own paper. Imagine a secondary source as a colleague talking to you about your topic. As you respond, you’d want to sound like someone who knows the field, and so you’d try to learn how she reasons, the language she uses, the kinds of evidence she offers, and the kinds she rarely or never uses. The “conversation” would be in writing, so you’d even imitate stylistic details such as whether she writes in long paragraphs or breaks up her pages with subheads and bullet points (common in the social sciences, less common in the humanities).

You can also use a secondary source as a model for your conceptual analysis. If, for example, you were analyzing Alamo stories, you might study how a source treats Custer’s Last Stand. Is its approach psychological, social, historical, and political? Its particular reasons or evidence will probably be irrelevant to your project, but you might support your answer with the same kinds of data and reasoning, perhaps even following the same organization.

So if you come across a source that’s not exactly on your topic but treats one like it, skim it to see how that researcher thinks about his material and presents it. (You don’t have to cite that source if you use only its general logic, but you may cite it to give your own approach more authority.)

You can even borrow evidence from secondary sources to use in your own arguments, but you should do so only if you do not have access to the primary sources from which that evidence was originally taken. If you’re doing advanced work, check the accuracy of important quotations, facts, or numbers you draw from secondary sources.

Of course, if you were studying how the Alamo story has been analyzed, then secondary sources offering those analyses would be your primary sources.

If you’re new to a field, you may find secondary sources hard to read: they assume a lot of background knowledge, and many aren’t clearly written. If you’re working on a topic new to you, you might begin with an overview in a specialized encyclopedia or reliable tertiary source.

Read Tertiary Sources for Introductory Overviews

Tertiary sources are books and articles that synthesize secondary sources for general readers. They include textbooks, encyclopedias (including Wikipedia), and dictionaries, as well as articles in publications for broad audiences, like Time and the Atlantic. In the early stages of research, you can use tertiary sources to get a broad overview of your topic. But if you are making a scholarly argument, you should rely on secondary sources because these make up the conversation in which you are seeking to participate. If you cite tertiary sources in a scholarly argument, you will mark yourself as a novice or outsider, and many readers won’t take you—or your argument—seriously

Law of Attraction

How to manifest objects out of thin air

Law of attraction

You draw whatever you give your energy, thoughtfulness, and effort to. If you’re thoughtful about it, you’re attracting it to your existence — whether it’s progressive or damaging.

Everything is energy. Including your thoughts. you’re made up entirely of energy. The chair you’re sitting in is made from the same quite energy. The planets and stars and everything else alive is additionally made up of the same quite energy. And everything that’s made up of energy vibrates at a specific unique “frequency.”

This means that the truth around you is basically just a results of how your physical senses interpret the vibrations of whatever you encounter Since everything is energy …and everything is connected at that basic spirit plane …you are technically connected to the entire universe around you. and therefore the entire Universe (including the energy of everything that you simply want!!) is connected back to you. due to this connection to everything within it, the Universe knows EVERYTHING.

Manifestation through meditation

There are really only 2 ways i do know of for meditating successfully. One is by directing your thoughts and focus during a selected direction (that you choose). the opposite has no thought within the least and emptying your mind (if you can).

When it involves emptying your mind, there’s no real magic formula. you only practice it until you get good at doing it. it always isn’t something that comes naturally to most of the people , so it requires patience. And if you really want to meditate during this manner , your best bet of getting a productive session is to:

• confirm you’re always taking deep calm breaths.

• Stay in quiet surroundings where you won’t be bothered.

• Accept the very fact that — within the beginning — thoughts will certainly intrude.

• …And just patiently and gently let those thoughts go as soon as they are available …until it eventually begins to urge easier and easier over time.

OR …you can do what i like better to attempt to to , accompany the first method, and instead intentionally like better to consciously hold some extent of focus during your meditation session. this feature is that the simplest one for several people, and it’s extremely potent and effective.

As for what qualifies as a useful and easy point of focus, there are many options to choose from. you’ll count your breaths. you’ll consider a selected image to specialize in . you’ll visualize a scene in your head. you’ll be within the scene that you’re visualizing. the chances are endless.

And if any unwanted thoughts intrude, they’re way easier to affect since you’re not worried about keeping your mind absolutely silent — and you will instead just readdress your attention to somewhere you would like it to be.

Objects to manifest

Human life boils down four things. There are four things we would like , love, wealth, health and inner peace. In other words, a partner, financial security, a healthy body and spiritual philosophy in touch life’s trials. within the next few paragraphs we’ll teach you ways to manifest money, wealth, health and spiritual strength literally out of nothingness . you want to be wondering how it’s even possible. the solution is straightforward . With the facility of your subconscious and law of attraction everything is feasible .

Ways to manifest objects

The Gratitude Stacking Method

The Gratitude Stacking Method for manifesting your desires is as simple and direct as they are available . It’s also an excellent exercise to try to to if you don’t have tons of your time .

Step 1: Write out an inventory of things you’re grateful for.

Step 2: Recite through each entry on your list.

Step 3: As you’re reading them — one at a time — take 20-60 seconds (however long you personally prefer) to actually feel the gratitude of whatever you’re describing.

Feel free to write down down anything that provides you a sense of gratitude. once you undergo each “item” on your list, say it aloud . As for a way long this could take you, it’s really up to you since you opt how big you would like your list to be. you would possibly have 10 things, or just 5, or if you’re really during a rush — you would possibly only write 3 things that day.

Whatever you set down, you’ll list things that have happened within the past, belongings you have now, or maybe things that you simply wish to possess within the future.

Regardless of “when” each thing occurred, it should be phrased within the present (even future events), and start with wording similar to:

“Thank you for…”

“I’m so happy and grateful for…”

“I’m so happy and grateful now that…”

“I’m so thankful now that…”

“I’m so excited now that…”

“I’m grateful for…”

It’s called the ‘stacking’ method because you’re stacking a bunch of things on top of 1 another in one big list of gratitude.

How to manifest wealth through Pennies To Millions Method

Remember, your focus creates your reality. This means the best way to bring financial abundance into your life …is to simply find easy ways of noticing it more.

Money isn’t “big” or “small”. A coin, or a bill, is still money. The energy and money is everywhere!

So you’ll turn whenever you discover one on the bottom into a chance to magnify extra money . The way you do this is simple. Unlike the Universe, you continue to see things as “big vs. small”, “fast vs. slow”, and “easy vs. hard.” So instead of taking over the firmer job of anticipating sums of money a day , simply shall manifest a minimum of one penny on the bottom (which for you, is clearly an excellent easy thing to attract) instead. And then go about your day.

Most likely you’re going to find a penny and when you do, Universe confirming that this works, giving you money, and reminding you that there’s PLENTY more on the way!

Thank the Universe. I’m truly thankful for this and that I gladly would accept more.”

The Story Scripting Method

“story scripting” method is story writing.

For example, the story of your day in school is just a story. But it’s also factual, and it really occurred.

But now journal your day in a manner of living your dream life. Include details of what you would possibly have, what you would possibly do, and what you would possibly feel if what you wanted was already here.

Be as broad or as exact as you would like. You can focus on your contentment and describe different things now being the way you like them to be. Or you could pen your journal as if one goal that you wanted has now been achieved.

Write It into Reality

There are two methods of Story Scripting. The major one we’re covering is written scripting.

Step 1: Begin with a press release of gratitude such as:

“I am thankful for $10,000 monthly…”

“I’m so pleased with my new profession…”

“Thank you for the delightful connection I’m now in…”

“I’m glad to be in love”

“I’m so content with my existence right now…”

Manifest through Visualization method

Think of a blue elephant. Now imagine it pink. Change it to orange. Now transform the elephant into a lion. Hear the lion roar. Go over to comfort it. Don’t worry, it’s safe. Look down to see you’re wearing blue sneakers which tell the lion you’re a friend. Stroke its mane. Pet it’s back. It’s inactive next to a heap of boxes. They’re filled with cotton candy. Smell the cotton candy. Transform the cotton candy into pizza. Grab a slice and have a bite. It has your favorite toppings. Taste how good it is. The lion wants some. Hold out a slice because it gently takes it from you with its mouth.

It is to visualize.

People frequently put needless burden on themselves while they’re visualizing, trying to “force” what they want to appear. But “force” only presents conflict.

Sure, you’re going to be counting “outcomes” in your meditations. But you would like to stay things light and fun and as close as you’ll to whatever feelings you would possibly have if you were experiencing that outcome immediately.

This doesn’t mean you have to fabricate exciting delight out of thin air. If you’ll convincingly feel that, that’s great. But it’s not essential for you to get what you desire. In the end, no matter how magnificent life is going to “feel” when the things you won’t begin to materialize, it’s still going to be regular real life.

The fundamental to envisaging is choosing something brilliant to you that matches (as closely as possible) how it might be in real life. But it’s also extremely important to simulate this experience in your mind WITHOUT it feeling sort of a struggle or a chore.

The beauty of this is often that if you’ve tried out any of the gratitude or scripting techniques yet, you already know you’re ready to do that easily.

The success of your visualizations is based on their quality of them. The quality is based on your creativity. While your ego would like to make this difficult for you, it’s not as complicated as you would possibly have originally thought.

The Moment In Time Method

Envision a classic day that you might experience when what you want has come into your existence. It’s only “typical” because whatever delightful possessions you’re feeling are now normal everyday events. 

Choose a ‘scene’ to run through. It can be from ninety seconds to five minutes or even 10 minutes. 

What’s happening in this scene? Where are you? Who are you with? What are you wearing? What do you look like? What are you doing? Are you indoors or outdoors? What season is it? Are you relaxing or are you doing an activity? What are the wonders, noises, and odors around you? Are you dressed differently than you used to? Is your hair styled differently? 

Do this meditation for at least 90 seconds. But five or ten minutes is much better. This is also a great meditation to do as you’re drifting off to nap, since this experience will be your latest thought of the day and therefore a clear instruction for your hidden awareness (AND the Universe) to begin working towards while you slumber. 

Auto suggestion

Autosuggestion is a procedure of self-induced idea in the beliefs, feelings, or conduct of an individual are directed by oneself.  It is in spirit the silent talk we say to ourselves, about ourselves.  And when we are speaking to ourselves, we are speaking to our intuitive thoughts. Practice using “I AM” declarations that clearly imitate the new you

When these self-affirmations are specified on a steady foundation, they ultimately descend into intuitive thoughts and are taken at face value.  Optimistic words and judgments concerning the nature of the self have the aptitude to conversion your internal biosphere, make new opinions, alter feelings and in due time change your authenticity.  New intelligence waves initiate to be shaped and the working configuration of your mind starts a procedure of enduring transformation. After years of examination, neuroscientists have established that when we direct new material to the brain, new communication trails between the neurons are shaped. The mind can then form and manifest a new being.

SEO de-mystified

By Kashif Nasir

Every time you go in for an interview, the first thing they are going to ask you is: “what do you know about SEO?”

Let’s face it you are never going to be able to talk through it because the subject is just too complicated. So let me simplify it.

SEO and Grocery store analogy

SEO is online stores fighting for shelf space in Google’s search results. Yes, you heard it right. Bear with me for a minute; you have been to a grocery store. You see all these products on shelves, you cart your Malt drinks and favorite snacks come back home, and don’t think about it.

But the products on shelves didn’t magically appear there. They are carefully, selected, placed, and cataloged by the staff.

Similarly, a user enters some keywords into a search engine; Google’s search bots run through the available internet pages and bring the user the closest possible search result.

In this analogy, the user is the customer, the grocery store is the world-wide-web, the staff is Google’s search bots and SEO content is the product on the shelf.

So how does one product sells more than the other? How does one product gets listed above the other?

Simply, the product that meets the needs and wants of the customer. This is where good SEO content writers come in. The better SEO content we write, the more we raise our chances of getting into Google’s top search results.

On writing good SEO content    

Writing good SEO content is, understanding the mentality, needs, and wants of the search engine users. But it’s far more complicated than it sounds. It takes intelligence. It takes your ability to put yourself in Google user’s head and there are billions of heads out there sir. 

Will “key-words” get you there?

Most writers use “keywords” thinking it will rank their article. Let me give you an example. Let’s say you have an online clothing store. So there are several types of customers you are going to have.

Customer number 1: He is an old customer, he already knows your store, so what he is usually going to do is run a navigational query. He is just going to Google the store name and he will be redirected to your website, so far so good? Wrong! Using your store name as a keyword only gets you customers that already know about your store. Meaning you are going to lose the rest of the new potential customers.

Customer number 2: Knows the cloth he wants but doesn’t know where to buy them from.

Customer number 3: Doesn’t exactly know what he wants but is browsing to see what’s out there. (This is an ideal target; you can sell him whatever you have).

And it doesn’t stop here; there are Google users with different budgets, different emotional motivations, different levels of education, different levels of familiarity with using search engines, different tastes, and different previous experiences with online shopping.   

Conclusion

Your SEO content should be tailored for all the above top three customers.  Here is my advice: write less. Yes doing less is the backbone of IT, why write longer code when you gain the same benefits with writing less?

Google is not looking for lengthy posts. Nowadays Google even doesn’t redirect to a website. It just shows highlighted text right on the search page. So write precise, concise, in other words, write less.  Understand your potential customer, anticipate his or her needs. Learn and adapt. 

IV Infusion

IV Infusion

IV Infusion is the administration of nutrients, electrolytes, minerals, and fluids into a patient’s veins. IV infusion allows the intake of nutrients when gastrointestinal absorption of food is inaccessible or insufficient.

History of IV Infusion

Current IV therapy is less than 100 years old. Yet, the knowledge of IV infusion is ancient. But because of a lack of understanding about sterility, infection control, and other scientific methods, original attempts to deliver IV fluids and drugs met with little success. The greatest advance in drugs, equipment, and procedures has occurred in the past 25 years. The methods and parameters of IV therapy are developing.

Importance of IV infusion

Good nutrition is important for the maintenance of health and to avoid disease. Malnutrition problems occur during a hospital stay. Patients are either unable to feed themselves by mouth or they dislike hospital food. IV Infusion solves the problem of malnutrition by bypassing the oral route of food intake. IV infusion delivers minerals and nutrients straight into the bloodstream where they are readily absorbed. In critical-care situations rapid effect of fluids delivered into the bloodstream is essential.

Advantages of IV Infusion

  • IV Infusion is life-saving for patients who cannot maintain nutrients intake for long periods.
  • Body fluids lost by, diarrhea, vomiting, or excessive perspiration produce illness and can cause death. IV Infusion is a quick way to compensate for the loss of bodily fluids.
  • The relationship between the concentrations of sodium and potassium electrolytes in the cells and the extracellular fluid causes the water to flow into and out of the cells. In case of shock electrolytes balance can be disturbed. IV Infusion can restore the electrolyte balance within the body.

Who needs IV Infusion?

Patients with the problem of

  • Loss of appetite.
  • Loss of consciousness.
  • Inability to swallow.
  • Dehydration
  • Excessive nutrient loss.
  • Intestinal failure.
  • Excessive metabolic demands.
  • Unavailability of eternal tube feeding.
  • Pancreatic disease
  • Small intestinal disease.

IV infusion is needed after surgery. IV Infusion is the only solution for patients who suffer from respiratory problems, in whom ETF cannot be used.

Weaknesses of oral administration

  • Advancement of age causes impairment of swallowing which hampers oral administration of medicine.
  • In graphic studies of transit rates of hard gelatin capsules and tablets, elderly subjects were frequently unable to clear the capsules. This appears to be due to the separation of the bolus of water and capsule in the oropharynx, resulting in a ‘‘dry’’ swallow. As a result, capsule adherence occurred in the lower third of the esophagus.
  • The oral administration of many drugs and drug candidates is prevented by their poor penetration through the intestinal barrier.
  • The rate of absorption of medicine by Oral administration is 10 percent compared to this IV Infusion has more success.
  • Most of the data about orally administered drugs are obtained from healthy individuals. However, many drugs are administered to patients who are sick. A disease might affect either their absorption or overall bioavailability.
