What You Need to Know Before Deciding on a Caller ID Spoofing Company

There are a few important things you should know about caller id spoofing services before you decide on just one. This article will bring attention to the important things you should look for in any spoofing service.

What you need to know about caller id spoofing services

This is what matters when it comes to caller id spoofing. I put these here for you.

There are a few quick notes about caller id spoofing cards and services that you should know about. Knowing about these tips will allow you make the best decision before going out and spending money on a service.

It does not matter how you use caller id spoofing

  • Doctor needing to disguise home number
  • Worried spouse wanting to find the truth
  • Calling back an unknown number
  • Responding to classified ads
  • Hiding your location
  • Just because

What does matter is your security

You want a company that knows what they are doing and even more critical, you want a company that plays by the rules. This is important because there are spoofing services that have already been shut down. The most important thing about caller id spoofing is the company you trust.

Do not waste your time, go with a company that really knows the legalities involved with caller id spoofing.

Caller id spoofing is easier when you have useful, quality features

Call quality, usefulness of features, and ease of use should not be forgotten.

What good is a caller id spoofing card if it does not work completely or sounds terrible and fake? Make sure the company you choose for caller id spoofing lets you try the product before you buy it.

Pay attention to call quality as that is so important if you need to have others listen to the them in the future. Another thing you should always look at before deciding on a caller id service is their online control panel. Some services will come with an interface you can access on the Internet, those are the services you want to look into.

Some services are better than others. Research and go with the best.

I am not going to waste your time

The truth.

I use and trust the smart people at SpoofCard because they know what they are doing, the recorded call quality is incredible, and the male voice sounds just like that guy from the Saw movies.

I said I was not going to waste your time and I meant it. I have tried a number of caller id spoofing services and so far, SpoofCard is the only one that I will talk to my friends about because their whole operation is legit and respectable.

Do not pull out your credit card for any caller id spoofing service unless the company you are planning to do business with lets you try out their service first. Some services will require you to download something and some do not require software. I recommend choosing the company that does not require you to download an application.…

How To Build The Perfect Home Library With A Relaxing Twist

Even with the increased popularity of e-books, the home library remains an essential element in decorating for passionate readers, but also for people that are just looking to create a relaxing and educational room in their house.

A house without a library lacks personality, it is like a room without windows, or as Marcus Cicero used to say, like a body without a soul.

On top of that, a house filled with books everywhere in piles, even if it looks unique, it is not the best example of a functional home. It is easy to find a compromise, by creating a home library that reflects your personality, and it offers relaxation at the same time.

 

Where to put the home library

You will probably have a complete room to use it as a library, but even if you don’t, it will probably occupy a large part of your living room. If you are looking for multiple usages for your chair, you can buy a massage chair for health to use both for your home library and for watching TV.

It also depends on how many books you have. If you are the type of person that buys more books than one can read in a lifetime, you will probably need a tall room and many shelves. However, vertical home libraries are a lot more stylish these days. It is a major change compared with the trends some years ago, recommending short but wide libraries that could take up an entire wall.

If you are buying a tall library, you can also think of a tall ladder. This way, you can arrange the books you already read on certain superior shelves, to keep the ones you want to read handy on the inferior ones.

Besides this, the library place in your house also needs a small cupboard, where you can keep your glasses, book signs and every little accessory you need for a perfect reading experience.

The key part of your reading space will be the armchair, for two main reasons: first, it will be in the center of the area, being seen as an important part of the layout, and it must also be comfortable for the long hours in which you submerse in the world of your favorite book characters.

If you are thinking about creating such a space for your parents and you know they like to fall asleep while reading, you can think about buying them a massage chair for health. However, be aware that actual reading might be affected by the comfort given by these modern devices.

If you are looking to give a twist to your home library and make it unique, choose a smart lighting system besides your massager for health. Good lighting is needed not only for reading, but also for highlighting the personality of your little piece of heaven.

Add some organic elements on the shelves such as small flower pots, pine cones and other decorations. Another useful trick is to use special supports for collections of your favorite authors, or for books that you want to highlight in the setup.…

Finding and Buying a Green Home

About ten years ago we were considering solar panels for our home, but found the price a bit prohibitive for our budget at the time. Looking back, we should have figured out a way to do it. Now being green is so much more expensive.

The good news is because of the current economy housing prices have dropped significantly so purchasing a home that is already green or finding a less expensive home and making green renovations is definitely an option.

If you are thinking of buying a new home and want to take steps to ensure the home you buy is eco-friendly, here are some things to look for as you shop.

Location is an Important Green Consideration

Actually, whenever you purchase a home experts will remind you that location is an important factor in your decision, because while you can change the look of your home, it’s a lot more difficult to change the location. So make sure you put location high on your list when shopping for a green home.

Specifically consider how the home is set on the property in order to take advantage of the sun all year round. If it’s an older home, look for vegetation that offers shade (properly placed trees that protect rooms from the hot summer sun) and noise abatement. Look at the lot for things such as rainwater runoff and possible rodent infestation from nearby fields.

Another green consideration is the home’s location to retail, schools and public transportation. Being able to walk or ride a bus or train to work, school or shopping not only helps the environment, it may reduce your home insurance rates.

Make Sure the Home Was Built Green

While many people think of LEED (Leadership in Environmental and Energy Design) certification when it comes to commercial buildings, there is actually a LEED for homes, too.

While the certification process for homes is extensive, some of the things required include the use of products which are locally produced (this means extracted, processed and manufactured within 500 miles of the home), fitting the home with ENERGY STAR® lights and a programmable thermostat, and using water resistant flooring in the entryway, kitchen, bathrooms, laundry room and spa areas – no carpeting.

You should also be sure the home is properly insulated (i.e. insulation with the appropriate R-factor, a measure of heat loss) and that there is weather-stripping on all doors and windows. And speaking of windows, while they are great for the natural light they offer, look for eco-friendly, energy-efficient windows that are NRFC rated (National Fenestration Rating Council).

Finally, make sure the home was built with a good plumbing system. An ENERGY STAR ® tankless water heater which eliminates the need for a 40-gallon hot water tank and heats the water immediately (no wait time), plus you’ll want low flow toilets, showerheads and faucets. And check to see if there is a graywater (also spelled greywater) disposal and recycling system for reuse of irrigation and laundry water.

Select Green Flooring, Appliances and Landscaping

If you’re moving into a new home, you may have the opportunity to select many of your own amenities such as flooring, appliances and landscaping.

When we were recently shopping for new flooring for the dining room, they steered us toward bamboo and cork because they are natural, non-toxic, and durable. They are also quite beautiful. In addition to reclaimed wood, linoleum, and stone tile, they are considered the top eco-friendly flooring choices.

As for appliances, keep the ENERGY STAR ® label in mind for your refrigerator, ceiling fans, dishwasher, clothes washer and dryer.

On the outside of your home, look for non-invasive, drought-tolerant, native plants with low irrigation needs. Use mulch to retain moisture in the soil and plant trees along sidewalks, patios and driveways to offer shade. Also consider landscaping which discourages invasive species to minimize demand for synthetic chemicals.

There are a lot of ways to make your home more eco-friendly and these are just a few of the things to mull over as you look for you new green home.…

How to Make Your Home Greener?

There are people who make the efforts to keep their home greener but they struggle to keep the home greener because they don’t know how to maintain it. Here are some ways that can help you to make your home greener and will help to maintain it.

First of all let us consider the people who want to make their home greener and there is nothing at their home. Some people believe that making their home greener means planting trees and plants. But, that is their misunderstanding. There are so many other things apart from planting trees that can make your home greener. But, yes planting trees is also an important option. When you are thing to make your home greener, that is the first option to be used.

Let us talk about the plants you can plant in your home to make your home greener. The first plant you can think of in your house is one of your favorite plants, a Christmas tree. Yes, Christmas tree is one of the best trees that is easy to plant in the house because normal home temperature conditions are best suitable for it. Place a Christmas tree at a place in your house that is safe from direct sun light because direct sun light is not suitable to this plant. The biggest advantage of planting this tree in your house is that it gives your house a fascinating look.

Another plant you can think of planting in your house is the money plant. Yes, it is known as money plant that gives the beautiful looks to your house. It is a plant that takes the support of straight bar (or any other support) to grow on. Probably, you might think that why it is called as money plant?

Go for dark green option while you think of tie a net on the windows.…

Build Your Family Library on the Cheap

Have you always dreamed of having shelves and shelves of books? The theory is great, but when you consider the cost of buying so many books, you might decide that it just isn’t worth it and stick to a library card instead. However, it really doesn’t have to be that expensive to build your own home library! Here are a few tips to help you get your collection underway on a budget.

 

The first thing to do is to set aside a small amount of money each month specifically earmarked for books. This could be just the change you end up with at the end of each day, deposited into a “book jar” or you might budget a certain amount, $5-50 each month. The amount you can afford is really determined by your personal finances, but it doesn’t have to be a lot. Now, with your money, it’s time to start shopping for books!

Check out the used book stores in your area. At one time, it was possible to buy used books from these dusty shops for just pennies, but with the cost of living and the rent going up, you are lucky to find used books for $5 in most cases. But don’t worry, used bookstores often have a sale rack or a bin where they toss books that have just been hanging around too long or that are damaged. Take the time to look through these bins. Most of the books will be drivel, but you will occasionally find a gold nugget that is well worth the fifty cents being asked!

Garage sales are another good source of used books, often in excellent condition. Since books rarely sell, it is likely that you will be able to buy them at a nice, low price. If the owner seems reluctant to give a good price, ask if you can come back or call after the sale is over and buy any remaining books for a discount. Rather than pack up the leftover books, most garage sale owners will say yes. You might also get a discount if you offer to take the entire lot, instead of picking through them.

Another often overlooked source of used books is your local library. Ask when they have their sales. Libraries usually get rid of older or damaged books once or twice a year. These books will be stamped with “DISCARD” and may have the book cover marked or cut up, but they are also dirt cheap and you can find some very good books this way.

Regular thrift shops usually have a book section as well. Since these shops will often be earning off their clothing or other goods, the books will be very low priced, often just ten or twenty cents each. Many of the books will be out of date, but for novels and the like, it really doesn’t matter and you can build your library for just a few dollars.

Yet another place to get used books for cheap is the school. Schools regularly discard their old library books and sell off their out-of-date texts. This can mean big savings for you. The readers are full of illustrated stories for children and come in every grade level. They are often sold for a dollar or two, so you can pick up what basically amounts to an entire book full of stories for next to nothing!

As you can see, there’s no need to spend the big bucks on getting books for your family library. Used books are just as good as brand new ones and just a fraction of the price! So take advantage of the used book sales today and start building a library!…

Five of the World’s Most Unusual, Eco-Friendly Home Furnishings

With all this talk about taking care of the Earth, and learning to efficiently use the world’s resources, I thought it would be interesting to take a look at some inventions that are little known to the rest of the world. There are plenty of us who religiously and meticulously separate our waste materials. But it seems that there are organizations who are taking the “green” movement a little bit farther than the average consumer. In my quest for life’s most interesting conversation pieces, I lucked up on a several different mind-blowing home decorating options (most of which are made of recycleable materials). Mind you, each and every one of these are fully-functional, and in most cases, some of the most beautiful pieces of home art you’ll ever find…

 

  1. A FIREPLACE IN YOUR TABLE – Those not fortunate enough to have a cozy spot in the house for gathering around a toasty fire are finally in luck. Schulte Design is marketing a line of furniture called “Fire Furniture”, with one of the more popular pieces being a small coffee table which has a fireplace integrated into the center of its structure. In case you’re worried about pollutants, do not be. The fire is created with a liquid that is emission and smoke free.
  2. BOOKSHELF…OR COFFIN? – The Shelves for Life, which made their debut at the [Re]Design 06 exhibition in London, are perhaps the most functional bookshelves ever invented. After you’re finished using the shelves to hold your most precious literary items, you can use them to hold your most recently deceased. Yes, the contemporary, multi-slat shelves can be dismantled and re-assembled into a fully functioning coffin.
  3. THE KITCHEN CHAIR– I know what you’re thinking. There isn’t any thing strange about a chair being in the kitchen. But what about a chair that actually doubles as a kitchen? Vestal Design has developed a home décor solution for those with extremely limited space. The DoubleSpace Kitchenette is essentially a chair which can be flipped over (via an internal swivel mechanism) and used as a fully functioning stove.

    The “kitchenette” contains a countertop and two stove burners. It was also designed with a safety feature which will not allow the stove to be operable when the unit is used as a chair. Furthermore, the device is mobile, and can be rolled around at your leisure. Under the assumption that one will never cook and sit at the same time, this unit was developed to conserve both space and energy.

  4. DINING ROOM IN A BOX– This isn’t a reference to a bucket of chicken, or any variation of “boxable” fast food. The MealBox, created by Igland Design is actually a complete dining room set which fits neatly into a cube measuring almost a 1 ½ feet high.

    The furniture itself consists of several jigsaw puzzle-like slats which fit snugly together to form a low coffee table or mini-dining table. The six “chairs” are simply stackable seats which closely resemble foot stools covered in “tush-sensitive” Neoprene rubber seating. This dining room can be taken literally anywhere.

  5. AN IV FOR YOUR HOUSEPLANTS – Green thumb? What’s that? Everyone who has attempted to grow houseplants and failed understands that these lovely greenies need water, sunlight, and lots of happy conversation. Sometimes, we forget to supply the first ingredient.

    But if you happen to have Vitamin Living‘s I.V. Plant Pot, then you shall fear no more the imminent death of your beloved household plants. This contraption is a real I.V. which continually provides your plant with its necessary nutrients. When the clear I.V. bag goes a bit flat, you’ll know that it’s time to fill up your plant’s water supply once more.

As I combed the internet and browsed various sites, I was amazed at exactly how many different kinds of companies there are which are solely dedicated to providing innovative solutions to space and energy conservation. By taking a closer look at how we use our square footage and energy, it’s possible to discover brand new ways of conserving the earth’s resources.…

How to Have a Clean Environment for Successful Work

If you are like me, it’s hard to sit down to get anything done if your desk is cluttered with trash, empty plates or cups, and other items that are not necessary to being productive. Today I set to clearing the clutter.

 

You can view photos of the process here.

Separation of Work and Play 
Since I am returning home from college and using freelance writing as my summer job, my bed room has become my office. To separate work and play, my desk faces away from my bed, books, and stereo. I’ve learned that even looking at the items will distract me. Oh how tempting naps are.

For many, the situation is much different. If possible, it would be best to set aside an office space (another room, large closet, etc.). For me, dedicated on half of my room to a space to write.

Clearing the clutter 
I always begin cleaning by throwing away all of the trash. This leaves you only the items that need to be sorted. From there you can organize your belongings, put them in storage, or donate them if they are no longer something you need.

Since the space I use is also my bedroom, I disposed of trash, put all my clothes away, and organized the necessary items for writing such as pens, pencils, sticky notes, etc.

Beware getting distracted 
When you begin to sort items you can get side-tracked in many ways. For instance, I came across some of my possessions that held significance with me, when placing them in their correct location, I found other things of significance. My items of significance were old year books, which I spent nearly two hours looking through. It’s great to have these moments, but not when you should be working. So set a time frame on cleaning and stick to it.

Tips 
– Decide where you are going to work and what environment you work best in. 
– Separate work and play as much as you possibly can. 
– Clear away all unnecessary items like trash, plates, or anything that will distract you. 
– Set a realistic time limit on preparing this space and keep track of that time.

Once you have a clean environment to work in that is specific to you, you will feel much more productive. And, everything you need will be within an arm’s reach.

Other projects lead to restoring the environment, such as conservation of coral reefs, or rain forests, this can often lead to eco-tourism opportunities.

For other projects such as land restoration, soil remediation, we have seen mining companies and land developers working together with environmental companies to restore the lands and develop new projects.

But overall, some of the new opportunities such as carbon credits, water rights and biodiversity are new financial instruments that you should certainly consider in your revenue model, and you maybe surprised of the upsides they can bring to you.

Question 3: Do CleanTech / Environmental Investors invest in these projects?

Yes, they do, and there are specialized investment funds dedicated for these projects (see our report Global CleanTech & Environmental Capital Providers Guide for more details) ‘” there are certain investment funds investing in forestry managements and eco-tourism projects, even though they are not usually mentioned on their website as part of the mandate.

In terms of locations, our research has shown that investment firms in Australia, Canada, US, Switzerland, Germany and UK are particularly the ones worth investigating. There are also different Government grants and incentives available ‘” some are available in Asia Pacific and Middle East (if they relate to water management and soil remediation). You should certainly look at international opportunities when comes to capital raising.…

How to Become an Advertising Freelancer

There are essentially three kinds of businesses in this world: Those that can afford to have an advertising agency handle all their advertising; those that can’t, but can do their own advertising and marketing in-house; and finally, those businesses that can do neither. That’s where an advertising freelancer comes into the picture.

 

A freelancer works on a project-by-project basis. No case too small. The benefit to the business is that they can have the freelancer work with their relatively low ad budget. The freelancer charges either by the hour or per project for their services. In doing so, they can provide professional advertising campaign management with a budget far lower than advertising agencies can feasibly work with. It’s becoming a better option for more and more businesses that simply don’t have the ability to do it on their own.

This creates an outstanding opportunity for advertising professionals who want to break out of the corporate conundrum, and get out on their own. Freelancers enjoy a greater amount of independence and self-determination than advertising professionals who work in a firm. They can take on numerous businesses as clients and have multiple streams of revenue. This means better financial stability for the freelancer.

So, say you’re an advertising pro and ready to cut the agency apron strings. Here are some simple, logical steps to get going:

1. Come up with a marketable name. Some freelancers make the mistake of working as a single person, (“Jane Schmo, Advertising Freelance”). This tends to “shrink” the freelance’s abilities in the eyes of a prospective client. Instead, come up with a professional company name (more like “Schmo Advertising and Marketing”). Present yourself more in the light of a project manager-type that will produce, supervise and manage a company’s ad campaign with the aid of other creative advertising professionals if needed. This will go a long way in projecting your image as an advertising professional who can take on any kind of campaign.

2. Once you have a name, have professional materials made up to build your image. This includes the obvious: business cards, stationery, brochures, etc. But also be sure to include other items such as advertising premiums – such as pens, key-chains, notepads, personalized calendars, and other “schwag”. You want to get your name and image out there and on the desks of the very business owners you want to work for. Image and name recognition is everything in advertising more so than any other segment of business. Get your name out there.

3. Produce an impressive info-pack – Be sure to include a detailed resume and history of past campaigns that you have worked on in your professional career. Be sure to highlight your more successful campaigns, the ones you think your prospects may have come across.

4. Put up a website – This is non-negotiable if you want to be taken seriously as a professional. You MUST have a website with a good, easy to remember domain name. Make sure ALL your materials have your web address. Your website will be your living, breathing resume. Don’t skimp on it, and update it regularly. Put up nothing less than a professional, clean and slick website and be sure to have your burgeoning portfolio on-line for your prospects to peruse at their leisure.

5. Determine your rates – Research your competition and see what the going rates are for the kind of services you will be offering. Price yourself somewhere in the middle. According to most advertising trade publications, freelance copywriters get anywhere from $350-450 per billable hour. Keep in mind that many business owners like to have a good idea of what the total cost of the project will be from the get-go. Look into pricing an entire project to get their business. Just make sure you don’t price too low and end up working way too much for too little.

6. Nobody can do everything great, so make sure your prospects understand that you have other professionals at your disposal. Such as, graphic artists, web designers and other creative specialists, to make their campaign a well-packaged success.

7. Know the ins and outs of on-line advertising! This is the future of advertising, and …
