A fitness plan for the whole family

Guest post written by Betty Adams

I think that it's so much easier to work out when you have someone else to hold you accountable. Then if you have your family to hold you accountable too, then I think your fitness plan will be that much more successful!

We eat a lot of junk food in our home and I've decided to get us all to start eating better and working out too. I looked online to try and find an idea on how to get everyone fit together. While I was looking online for those ideas I found the site WildBlueDeals.com. Even though that wasn't what I was looking for, I looked through it some and after that I decided to change over our home intenret service to th! at one.

I also found this one walking and sprinting fitness plan and I think that I'm going to try that out this week with our family. Our neighborhood is really great for walking so we can try it there. This is supposed to be really good cardio, so we'll see what everyone thinks after we try it out.

Biozone Ultraviolet Air Purifiers

Looking out the window today I can tell from the glorious sunshine that summer has finally arrived. If you like lazing out in the sunshine, catching a few rays and generally relaxing in the warmth that's great news. If, on the other hand, you're someone who burns easily or has a ferociously growing lawn then it isn't so good! The warm summer sun can also signify trouble for hay fever sufferers, with all the pollen floating about in the breeze.

Thankfully help is at hand for hay fever and other allergy sufferers alike - air purification systems. The Biozone air purifiers utilise state of the art technology to break down the nasty little contaminants that trigger allergies. Ultraviolet light is passed through the air and breaks down the bonds in contaminant particles like dust, pollen and dust mite feces. The UV zapped air is much easier on the lungs, so that's good news if you're an allergy sufferer.

The air expelled from the Biozone air purifier is also less likely to harbor contaminants. This is because the UV treatment produces air of a high energy gaseous state, which helps to break down large organic particles when it is expelled from the purifier. These expelled gases sanitise surfaces 100 to 2000 times faster than most other decontamination processes, meaning your room stays cleaner and fresher for longer.

Online Marketing

With the ever expanding reach of the world wide web, more and more companies and individuals are turning to the power of the internet as a marketing tool. According to the latest figures released by Internet World Stats there are 1.4 billion people surfing the internet on a regular basis - that's 1.4 potential customers for your business. It's little wonder that the use of online marketing techniques has rocketed in popularity.

One of the fundamental principles of search engine marketing is the ability to use search engine optimisation (SEO) to increase your product or service's exposure in the search engines, thereby driving more targeted organic traffic to your site. A balanced and considered approach to SEO management is essential to achieve the best results.

Another popular form of online marketing, employed by experienced and novice businesses and webmasters alike, is pay per click (PPC) advertising. PPC is a medium that displays ads of interest to your website visitors, with the intention of attracting them to the product or service featured. A small payment is received for each click a PPC ad attracts. Again, an effective approach to PPC management is essential to ensure the best conversion from the ads displayed.

With your potential customer base increasing daily, there has never been a better time to learn more about online marketing.

Arm Chair Tourism

Aurora australis (the Southern Lights)
as seen from Antarctica.

As some of you might be aware it wasn't all that long ago I was a student. Probably one of the most important things I learned during my eight years at university (no joke) was how to look after my money. I'd go to the supermarket and buy the cheap food just coming up to its sell-by date, I'd buy all of my train tickets months in advance for the cheapest fares and I'd carefully limit the amount of socialising I did. Travelling was probably my biggest expense after tuition fees and rent. There were so many places I'd like to see but I just didn't have the finances the cover it. It's even worse now with all the airlines charging a fortune to cover their rocketing fuel costs.

Thankfully there is a partial solution to all those people who would like to travel but haven't got the time, inclination or money - arm chair tourism. The Arm Chair Tourist is a neat little blog that brings together live webcam feeds from the some of the world's most desirable travel destinations. Each post covers a different place of interest and comes with a few images, little introductory chit chat and useful links to the webcams and related information.

The Arm Chair Tourist has so far travelled to the bright city lights of bustling Hong Kong, the foamy white waters of Niagra Falls and the relaxing turquoise seas of the Carribean. Sydney, California and Antarctica are just a few of the other destinations in this action packed travel guide.

Tidying Up Your iTunes MP3 Collection

One of the worst things, if there is such a thing, of having a fast broadband connection is that you spend the day downloading lots of media files. My MP3 collection is overwhelming and, having diverse taste in music, I sometimes have real difficulty locating the tracks I'm looking for.

Thankfully there is an easy way of tidying up your iTunes collection in four simple steps:
  • The first thing you need to do is ensure that the ID3 tags on each track are correct. This is necessary because the tags sometimes get damaged when the files are transferred across to iTunes from a different medium. On rare occasions the tags can even get lost altogether during the transfer process.
  • Re import your tag corrected files back into iTunes.
  • Remove duplicated files from your iTunes collection. It is much easier to do this if the tags are correct - simply use the ‘Show Duplicate Songs’ command in the iTunes Edit menu.
  • Add album art to your tracks. iTunes doesn't automatically add the artwork included on CDs. iTunes artwork can be achieved by using software that transfers images across from Amazon to your CDs.
If you'd like to learn more about how to sort your iTunes collection efficiently then head over to Connected Internet and check out their articles on the subject.

Orlando Visiting

I remember when I was younger how much I used to love all the Disney movies. We'd have a different Disney movie shown each week at school and they were an absolute sell out. All the kids and their parents went along to watch the old classics and sing along to their simple, yet melodic musical scores. Even now, as a fully grown man, I still reach for my Disney music albums and sing along to modern day classics from the likes of The Lion King, Pocahontas and Aladdin.

For Disney fanatics only one experience can surpass the enchantment and mystery of their movie back catalogue - that's a visit to the Magic Kingdom itself.

Orlando Visiting is the perfect site for people planning a journey across to the Disney World resort in Orlando, Florida. Their regularly updated blog brings you the latest Disney news, giving you an essential taste of what's happening during your stay. Unlike many information sites Orlando Visiting also includes a Disney World forum where recent visitors to the Magic Kingdom can share their thoughts on the best rides, restaurants and bars, accommodation, local tourist attractions and much more. As the contributions come from fellow Disney tourists you can be confident they'll give an honest reflection, helping you get the best out of your visit to Orlando.

If you want to experience the magic of Disney first hand then Orlando Visiting is the site for you.

Palm Beach Travel

Imagine being in a place miles away from work, with the salty sea breeze taking the edge off the intense sun, sand between your toes and the reassuring sound of water lapping up the shore. No, this definitely ain't Blackpool - you'll not find any donkeys, candyfloss or coconut shies here because the golden sands we're talking about are in Florida.

If you've just suffered the discomfort of a long haul flight the last thing you want to do is spend hours hunting for the local amenities - the best beach venues, car hire companies, shopping malls, local restaurants, theatres and that sort of thing. Fortunately the nice people of Palm Beach Travel have done all the leg work for you.

Palm Beach Travel is an essential resource for anyone traveling to Florida's east coast. For the practically-minded there are details of West Palm Beach Hotels and for motoring enthusiasts West Palm Beach Lexus might be worth a visit.

Looking through the archive I see they have posts covering an exciting range of holiday pursuits. What better way to see the aquatic life of Florida's turquoise bays by taking up scuba diving. For people who just want to laze the days away with fine wining and dining, there are features about the local eateries and country clubs.

Whatever your holiday intentions there's no better place to start your research then Palm Beach Travel.
