Organic Vegetable Garden Basics (part 2 of 2)

Pests are the biggest threat to your organic garden. To fight them, you can use birds, frogs or other insects. You don’t have these creatures to fend off other insects. You simply have to create the ideal environment by putting a bird house or a small pond. Once they are in place, they will do the rest by patrolling your garden and eating those who seek to eat your crops.

Putting up a few barriers can also help. Row covers are known to prevent moths from landing and laying eggs. You can also use sticky traps and foil collars to stop pests and borers.

There are also organic pesticides around but some of them can only kill one or two kinds of pests. So before you buy them, make sure you know what you are dealing with.

Crop rotation is the best way to preserve the fertility of the soil. This is done after you harvest the vegetables so it is ready for planting once again. For this to work, you have to plant in the same area a different vegetable.

Anyone can learn organic vegetable gardening basics and soon have their own little farm in their backyard. It is fresh and you can pick this anytime you want which is very convenient as these are only a few feet from your home.

Should everyone get into organic vegetable gardening? Perhaps because there is a food shortage right now and most of the vegetables imported do not use this technique. The government for its part has given incentives to farmers here to shift to this method but its going to take more effort to persuade countries that do business with the US to do the same thing.

Organic Vegetable Garden Basics (part 1 of 2)

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to plant vegetables. But if you want to do this the old fashioned way which has been proven to be very effective, you should know the organic vegetable gardening basics.

The first thing you have to know is what is organic vegetable gardening? It is simply a way of farming that does not use any synthetic products which includes fertilizers and pesticides. In short, you work with nature to get what you want.

When choosing the right vegetable to plant is knowing which of these are suitable to the soil and the climate. If you live in an area that experiences droughts, buy those that do not consume that much water.

Before you drop seeds into the soil, make sure the land is ready by tilling the land so it is clear both of rocks and weeds.

The next step will be to add compost, bone meal or rock phosphate and greensand to the soil to supply it with nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium. If the pH level of the soil is too high, add lime or sulphur to adjust it.

One more thing you have to do before planting the seeds is putting in organic fertilizer. You can use recycled leaves, grass clippings, coffee grounds, eggshells and kitchen waste which should be applied a month before planting begins.

Then it is time to plant the seeds. Each seed must be spaced by a certain distance the roots do not fight for water. In between each of the vegetables, you can plant other things as well because the tighter the space, the lesser the chances that weeds will grow.

Mineral Makeup Allergies (part 2 of 2)

The downside is that bismuth oxycloride tends to enter the skin pores and block these pores.   This would cause skin irritation.  That is why some women who use mineral makeup complains that they end up with itchy and blotchy red face.  Since this mineral is similar to crystals it can be itchy whenever applied.

Carmine, which is also a mineral used in mineral based cosmetics, can also cause allergies.  If you have sensitive skin and you noticed that carmine is a part of the ingredient list,  then it would be better to consider another product.  Carmine came from the shells of cochineal beetles.  The shells are crushed and there would be red pigment.   This red pigment is used to provide color in cosmetics.

When exposed to allergens, the skin breaks down.  The outside skin gets injured resulting to allergic symptoms like itchy patch of skin, scaly skin, or sometimes even bumps on the skin.  There are studies showing that there are 10 percent of the population showing allergic reactions to cosmetics.  Allergic reaction to cosmetics often occurs in women, most likely because women use cosmetic products than men.

Once you have noticed that you have an allergic reaction, stop using all the mineral makeup that you have.  Then after the allergy has subsided, try using them one by one.  By doing this, you would identify which of your makeup is triggering the reaction.  If the symptoms would not go away even if you have stopped using the product, then it would be for the best to consult a dermatologist or your doctor.

Mineral Makeup Allergies (part 1 of 2)

Nowadays, it seems possible to get allergic reaction from anything.  There are women who get allergies from a certain kind of makeup.  With this increasing sensitivity about what we put into our body, women are trying to look for alternative cosmetics that would not provoke an allergic reaction.  That is why most women are opting for mineral makeup.

But even if mineral makeup are chemical and preservative free, it does not mean that users are safe from any allergic reactions.  It is true that there are dermatologists who recommend mineral-based makeup to their patients with skin problems acne, sensitive skin, rosacea and oiliness.  But this is not an assurance that all patients would respond to mineral cosmetics well.

The reason why dermatologists recommend mineral makeup for those with sensitive skin is that is has zinc oxide which is a natural anti-inflammatory drug.  This calms the skin making the skin look refreshed.  Titanium dioxide is also present which protects the skin against the dangerous ultraviolet rays.  Also mineral makeup contains than moisture in the skin, that is why it is talc-free.  Keeping the moisture in makes the skin hydrated and maintain a healthy glow.

With all the benefits and good things you can get from  mineral makeup you should still be conscious when picking out the cosmetic that you would use.  When you are choosing mineral makeup, take notice of the ingredient list.  If the label does not have this information, then research it by talking to a personnel or visiting the company website.

Common cases  of allergies attributed to mineral makeup is almost always connected to bismuth oxycholoride.  This mineral is a product of lead, copper and other metals.  This kind mineral is uncommon.  What is its purpose?  They are included in the makeup because they provide a certain shine.  Bismuth oxychloride is important since it can cover the fine lines and wrinkles customers are trying to hide.

How to Look for Startup Money for Your Computer Business (part 2 of 2)

Angel investors.  Angel investors are individuals that like to invest in business startups.  If your business focuses on computers and technology, you're in luck.  Most of these private individuals like businesses that offer high-tech solutions because they have the most potential for rapid growth.  Many of them work as a network.  You could get in touch with them through your chamber of commerce, a small business development agency in your area, online or through ads in the papers.

Bank.  Banks can offer you a variety of loans to suit your needs, whether you require money to purchase inventory, supplies, equipment or real estate.  Check your local bank for the types of loans available to a startup business such as yours.  A loan officer can guide you on what you need to know – requirements, qualifications, amount of money you can loan, payment terms, etc.

Depending on the type and amount of loan you want, a bank may also require collateral from you in the form of personal assets.

Support your venture with a business plan.
Unless you can find someone to loan you the money for your computer startup business, you will need a good business plan in order to obtain a loan or grant from most lenders.

If you're planning to talk to a bank or a state funding agency, you will have to be able to show a business plan.  For one, most lenders will require a business plan and for another, you'll need this to help guide you on how much money you will need for your business.  Without a business plan, you could either ask for too much or too little, which, either way will not be helpful for your business.

How to Look for Startup Money for Your Computer Business (part 1 of 2)

Anyone who wishes to start a computer business will always have two words in mind: 'how much?'  While the computer industry remains robust with a huge potential, many entrepreneurs dreaming to be the next big computer don will find that in order to gain entry into this market, you will have to spend.  If your mission is to find funding for your computer startup business, here are some information you might find useful:

Determine the best source of money for business funding.
There are several sources of startup money you can use for your computer business.  You might want to look at several to determine which one is most feasible for your needs.  These are:

Personal savings.  Personal savings are the quickest and easiest source of money for a startup business.  For one, you don't have to pay anyone back and won't be under a lot of pressure because the responsibility rests on no one else but you.  On the other hand, if you use personal savings, you could deplete your nest egg severely or, you may not have enough saved to fund your capital.

Personal loans.  Another good source of funding is a personal loan.  You could obtain this from family or friends.  Just make sure to treat these personal loans with seriousness and respect.  Just because the money is obtained through friendship or family ties does not exempt you from paying on time and as agreed upon.

Credit cards.  Credit card companies do offer loans but the amount will be determined by your capability to earn (and therefore pay) and your credit standing.  Should you go this route, be careful about the payment terms, interest rates and repayment schedules.  Credit card companies tend to be rather unforgiving when it comes to loans.  If you default, it could affect your credit standing negatively.

Deforestation Problems: A Major Global Threat (part 2 of 2)

On the other hand, South America fortunately remains to be the most untouched of all forests over the entire Earth. Drastically though, the rate of its destruction is also going at the highest speed.

Europe is one of the least forested areas of the world, but is has the most disrupted forests too. For this reason, the green lands of Europe are almost imperceptible on the map already; and the rates only continued to shoot up ever since.

Asia is one of the continents which is the richest in tropical rainforests. But because of certain factors such as economy, mismanagement, and corruption, deforestation practices have spread across the continent widely.

The last of the continents to be greatly affected is Oceania. With every passing second, the rates of denuded forests are ever increasing; and like Asia, it is greatly affected by political and economic factors.

Problem Prevention

Deforestation problems have been happening through the thickness of time, and measures have come in every corner of the world in an effort to try to reverse and repair the ecological problem. Biological ways of preserving things have been put to practice, and these have proven to be of great help in the conservation of our very resources. The last things we need right now are men who do not participate in the preservation of the remaining living part of the world.

Deforestation Problems: A Major Global Threat (part 1 of 2)

Over the course of human history, men often found it easy to destroy forests.  Settlers of different tribes and races habitually burned trees down to have terrain to plant crops with, and some even smoldered forests to build up grasslands full of hefty game animals. Through the corridors of time, men were found out to be the very leaders of almost all scopes of evils here on earth, and one of the greatest troubles which impose a great threat to world's survival is the deforestation problems.

Deforestation entails a variety of problems both to man and nature. Some of them are very crucial that the root of the problem should immediately be cut. Some however come to pass without leaving much damage and mark on the Earth. But no matter how big or small the tribulation may be, it must be faced with total responsibility and accountability of man's actions.

Deforestation became a major global menace since the turn of the 19th century. Scientists and environmentalists alike envisioned what the world could be like if depleted and deprived of these forests. We might just wakeup one day and find out that we are living in a God-forsaken world. Although such things seem hard to believe, the possibilities are always true especially if man never stops to destroy and harm nature. Keep in mind that the more we scathe nature, the more it retaliates back at us.

Deforestation Problems In Different Landmarks

The problem of deforestation is not only confined to a single area or a small locale. The entire world usually experiences all the troubles that deforestation brings. Each and every human therefore took part in the destruction of some of the most vital areas of our world. Hence, such things should immediately be put to a stop. To begin with, the problem is faced not only by a single continent, but the whole world instead. Here are the most affected landmarks of deforestation problems: Africa, South America, Europe, Oceania, and Asia.

The rich and the cultural world of Africa have been devastated by deforestation problems. If you think that Africa is just a wide jungle with a very open savannah, then you may consider thinking twice again. Its open plains have now been reduced to cattle farming and animal grazing. It's becoming less and less of a nature, and the effects of mankind's acts upon it has totally denuded what used to be a prosperous land.

A Simplified Look at Composting (part 2 of 2)

Adding a lot of straw would do just fine. What the straw does is to create air pockets and allow the pile to be aerated. You can expect your compost to be developed at the same rate as when you employ the traditional “turn-over” composting technique. When you use this composting technique, be sure to get your compost from the bottom of the pile. Just add new organic materials on the top keeping in mind adding coarse materials as well.

If the only available composting materials in your yard are piles and piles of leaves, then don’t worry. Creating composts from leaves alone can be done. You just need a couple of things, and some very simple techniques. Select a place where you will make your compost pile. For the leaves, the place ideal would be a well shaded area which will help keep the pile damp or moist. Also keep in mind that the pile should not be packed tightly. Keep it loose to allow the air to circulate.

In four or six months, the compost from leaves should be finished and ready to be applied to the soil. Take a mental note, however, that the compost created from the leaves does not contain enough nutrients and microorganism to function as a fertilizer. The finished compost, however, is great as soil conditioner.

When composting, you will need materials rich in carbon and nitrogen namely fruits and vegetable scraps and other table scraps except left over bones because they attract a number of pests and animals. Other products include eggshells, grass or shrub clippings, pine needles, seaweed and kelp, coffee grounds, wood ash, tea leaves, cardboard and shredded paper, corn stalks, wood chips, and sawdust.

To discourage fruit flies and other pests from grouping together on your pile, it would be best to cover the pile or add lime or calcium over the top or whenever you add new materials to your compost. The lime and calcium also help neutralize the odors from your pile.

I hope you were able to have a simplified view of the composting and got some useful and simple tips from the article. Just remember that composting is difficult only if you want it to be.

A Simplified Look at Composting (part 1 of 2)

That of course is the general idea behind this article. There’s a lot of materials out there about composting and compost and the last thing you need is another one that explains the technical aspect of the process and the scientific basis behind the importance of using composts.

Although, I’m not denying the fact that technical explanations such as those are necessary as well, but it would be nice to hear or read something more of layman’s approach on the subject. Well that’s something that this article would like to do, anyhow.

Compost is an organic substance that is added to the soil which functions more than just being a fertilizer. It is a mulch, a soil conditioner, and something that will help the soil give the best nutrients and minerals your plants need. With compost, the soil also is able to hold more water, which is also beneficial to your plants.

There are several composting methods which you can employ or use. The so called “no-turn” composting method seems to be the easiest. Like what the title of the method indicates, you don’t need to turn the pile of compost at least once every week to quicken the process of decomposition. In this “no-turn” technique, all you need to do is add a lot of coarse materials to your compost.
