Why You Should Consider Switching Careers

One of the biggest myths that a lot of people seem to believe in is that the career you end up choosing is something that you are going to have to live with for the rest of your life, whether you are happy with it or not. It is important to realize that this is completely false. Indeed, you can always change your career, especially if it is making you unhappy in some way. Changing careers certainly isn’t easy, in fact it will require vast amounts of hard work if you truly want to be successful, but if you stay at it you will definitely end up prospering after some time.

If you are thinking of quitting your job so that you can move on to a different career, one thing that you should definitely keep in mind is the fact that you are entitled to outplacement counselling. This is a training program that all big companies will give the employees that are exiting their ranks so that they can be trained in the various things that the job hunt will require.

The reason that you should go for outplacement counselling is because of the fact that it will help you on your quest for a new career. This sort of training program can give you a number of very useful skills, skills that will help you impress future employers. A training program for people that are exiting a company will feature all sorts of different subjects that you can look into, so if you already have a general idea of the sort of field you are looking to enter you can simply ask your counsellor. You can also ask your counsellor for advice on which field to enter in the first place!

Magnetic Drive Pumps Do The Job Better

Pumping fluids is an important process that almost all industries need in their manufacturing operations. No matter what product a factory produces, there will be many gases and other fluids that need to be moved around throughout. Some fluids might be there as a waste by-product while others might be directly needed to manufacture the product in question. Since most of these fluids are hazardous substances, it’s very important that they get pumped around safely.

One of the most dangerous things that can occur in a factory is a spillage of fluids and this where the manufacturer’s choice in pumping equipment becomes very important. If there’s a leakage of these chemicals, the workers of the factory as exposed to fumes that can be very injurious to their health. Furthermore, the spillage of toxic chemicals can also be very dangerous to the environment, which is why factories and industrial areas are legally required to make sure that no such spillage occurs.

In most cases where there is a spill or leak, it’s at the shaft of the pumping equipment used. These shafts have to be sealed and cased to prevent this from happening but due to the immense pressures inside of these pipes and pumps, there’s always the risk of a spill happening. The reason why most factories in the United States are using centrifugal magnetic drive pumps over shaft driven pumps is simply that these kinds of pumps don’t leave any weaknesses in the pumping lines.

These pumps are driven by the force of magnets and since these magnets are externally placed, there are no cased and sealed areas that could potentially leak out dangerous substances. Conventional pumps are fine when pumping out biodegradable waste material but for dangerous substances, they aren’t suitable anymore.

Reasons to Own Gemstones

Stones can be very intriguing if you think about it. Even the pebbles you find in people’s gardens are ancient and were once part of the earth’s crust before they broke of and got shaped into round pebbles by water over a course of a few thousand years. If you look closely, you’ll see that they have layer like patterns in them as well. Of course, asides from this little story of how they were formed, most pebbles are otherwise very mundane but this is where gemstones come into the picture.

Somewhere in the earth’s crust where molten rock used to flow are deposits of minerals and crystals that can be cut up to shine unlike any other rock on the planet. These deposits are formed when magma cools down and only this natural process can form them, making them pretty valuable. Of course, once we cut these rocks up and polish them they gain even more value. It’s only natural for human beings to want to covet such precious stones.

Asides from their ornamental beauty, gem stones never lose their value, which gives us another reason to buy them. Let’s say that you have a huge amount of money that you aren’t going to be using for a while; the value of this money can go up over time but it can also go down, causing you a loss in value even though the amount remains the same. However, if you had bought gold and gemstones with that money, it could retain its value for ages.

Whether you see gems as ornaments or as assets, you can find all manner of them at Galaxy Gold at the most reasonable prices you’ll ever see anywhere else.

Bracelets: A Safe Gift Option

It is important that we pay attention to the women in our lives. They really do stand as strong pillars that silently support us from the back, and at the end of the day, we rely on them to provide us with a sense of emotional stability in our lives. Now, regardless of whether you have a relative, a female friend or a partner that you want to appreciate, small gestures and gifts are a great way to show them how much they mean to you.

Now, it can be difficult to decide what to get them, however, one of the safest options you can go for is the jewelry route. Yes, not all women wear jewelry, but every one of them does have a few pieces that they keep for certain events. In terms of deciding and picking jewelry, it is easier to opt for bracelets since they are the safest option. Choosing rings can be difficult, however, with bracelets, it is still relatively easier to pick something you know they will like.

You can opt for something more sentimental by choosing a bracelet with a design, pattern or piece that you know holds sentimental value for the person, or, you can opt for more decent and elegant pieces. You can look up websites and stores that supply tennis bracelet for women, because tennis bracelets feature a very simple and elegant which involves a silver or gold plated, small bracelet with some form of stones along with it. You can find more affordable tennis bracelets, and if you plan on spending a lot of money, you can get a more expensive tennis bracelet as well, and these ones will feature actual rare stones like sapphires, emeralds and so on. So, simply put, a bracelet can make for a safe and great gift.

Offset or Digital – Which is Better?

What is digital printing and how is it better or worse than offset printing isn’t something you’d catch yourself thinking about a lot. Well, not unless you’re a designer, that is. To designers, the type of printing done really matters. Neither one of the methods is a one size fits all method and therefore, every designer should know the differences between offset an digital printing as well as the strong suits and weaknesses of either methods so that they don’t compromise their work during the printing stage.

One of the reasons why a lot of new designers don’t know these differences or are even aware of the fact that this is a thing that they need to know is because it’s just poorly explained. Yep, it’s actually that simple. If designers had a good source telling them exactly why they need to be alternating between printing methods then more of them would be going around discussing the differences. Unfortunately though, that’s not the case yet and we’re trying to improve that at lemongraphic.sg.

Designers walk in with their projects and walk out with prints all the time at all print shops but lemongraphic.sg wants their clients to know what affects their work if they aren.t noticing it. Digital printing is generally a lot faster than offset printing so any client in a hurry should opt for it straight away. However, if they’re printing critical work then it’s just better if they go with offset for the better pan tone and greater colour matching options. The sizes of a digital prints are also a bit limited but if the client chooses offset printing, they can go for bigger prints and if greater quantity – just things every designer needs to know of.

New weight classes the answer to UFC’s talent overage?

The UFC has a problem on its hands. It’s at least 100 fighters over its limit to function efficiently. Right now, if you are a fighter and you lose, you are in real danger of losing your contract with the UFC. It’s especially true if you are a lightweight or a welterweight as the number of fighters in those categories is almost astronomical.

There are rumors that the UFC is looking at investing in a 115 pound weight class. Why bother scouting new talent and then investing in marketing these new fighters to fans when you already have enough fighters under contract that people know? What is the solution?

2 new weight classes.

I realize that getting one weight class up and running is typically a handful and takes time, but with the options I will spell out, it’ll be off and running before you know it.So what are the weight classes I’m thinking of?

165 lbs and 195 lbs (aka Franklinweight).

Before you start ripping the 165 class apart because it’s too close to welterweight, realize that welterweight is the only weight class that doesn’t end in ‘5’. The weight classes that the UFC has implemented recently have all been 10 lbs apart from each other which gives some semblance of normalcy to them. There are 3 large gaps in the weight classes right now.

155-170 (15lbs)
170-185 (15 lbs)
185-205 (20 lbs)

This doesn’t even begin to speak of heavyweight which is a whole other issue.

My proposal would make it very simple:

125, 135, 145, 155, 165, 175, 185, 195, 205, HWT.

Why would the UFC want to do this? They have the talent right now to fill these 2 weight classes up immediately and without scouting. Currently the UFC has over 70 fighters under contract in both the lightweight and welterweight classes when most weight classes average about 40 (minus Flyweight). For the new 165 pound class, you could have fighters drop down from the new welterweight class (175) and some coming up from the 155 pound class. This new class would fill up faster than any other weight class as there is currently over 140 fighters between 155 and 170 pounds. Assuming only 1/3 of them transition would make it larger than the current flyweight weight class in less than half of the time.

195 pounds would help those who have had a fight with Anderson and lost get a second chance at a championship. Also some smaller 205 pound fighters could transition down as well. Combined there are almost 100 fighters in the Middleweight and Light Heavyweight divisions so again we would have a very quick ramp up into the weight class.

While it may be true that the organization can’t function properly with the amount of fighters it currently has under contract, adding 2 classes and tweaking welterweight weight limit would give some room to breathe as well as an opportunity to have more champions for when the occasional champion is injured.

Will the UFC do this? Probably not, but aren’t the possibilities fun to think about? Who would be the 195 pound champ and who would be the 165 pound champ?

Brandon Vera is one of the sport’s most talented fighters who never found his full potential. Brandon stays honest when he tells us about not being where he should be now, why his training is different and what about this fight with Shogun is so important. Fighting a legend or fighting on national TV.

“Everyone keeps saying it’s such a huge deal, it’s the main event on Fox. I don’t care, the biggest thing is I’m fighting Shogun…Dude, I’m fighting Shogun, everything else is second. I’m fighting Shogun!”

“I eat, sleep, wake up thinking about Shogun.”
