Tweetplomacy and Thoughttweets: The Hallmarks of the Trump Presidency?

Presidential candidates have used media, and in more recent years, social media, to communicate and connect with their voters. After being elected, Presidents have continued to use various media to keep the people of the country informed of the administration’s policies and notable actions and achievements.Even before he assumed the Office of the President, Mr. Trump used tweets to convey what he thought about various events and issues. Such use of tweets can be appropriately labeled “tweetpolicy” when the contents of such tweets make reference to, for example, the current healthcare policy. Technically the tweets are not policy, but do provide clues regarding the direction that his policies will take.When the contents of Mr. Trump’s tweets include references to actions of other countries and its leaders, the correct term to use to refer to such tweets would be “tweetplomacy”. Mr. Trump has used “tweetplomacy” to send signals to other countries.It can also be argued that Mr. Trump has used Twitter.com to convey his thoughts throughout his campaign and after he won the Presidential elections. Because such thoughts were conveyed via tweets, they can be labeled “tweetthoughts” or “thoughtbytes.” Politicians have for many years used sound bites to convey their ideas to their constituents.Mr. Trump has used social media to convey his message to his constituents in the form of “thoughtbytes.” I am not suggesting that the thoughts conveyed by Mr. Trump are either correct or wrong, I am just stating that he has conveyed his thoughts in the form of short tweets. It is up to the people to either accept or reject his thoughts.Another set of tweets that Mr. Trump has sent were aimed at companies that were planning to start manufacturing facilities outside the United States. Because the contents of such tweets apparently made the companies change their plans, they can be labeled “armtwisttweets”.Yet another set of tweets can be called “slamtweets” or “tweetslams” because the contents of these tweets slammed what Mr. Trump’s opponents were saying. A case in point is the tweet slamming the idea that Russian hackers were responsible for hacking the emails of one of the political parties.Many people are worried and think that Mr. Trump’s use of Twitter.com is inappropriate. However, it is possible that his use of tweets will make his Presidency more transparent than the administrations of his predecessors.Past Presidents have used newspapers, radio, TV and the World Wide Web to communicate with people of the country. Twitter.com is a service or medium that allows people to communicate their thoughts, feelings and ideas and share them with anyone who has created an account at this social networking site. Why should a President not use it to share his thoughts and ideas with the citizens of the country?

Pros and Cons of Cable Internet

Being connected via a cable, the same as for cable television, has allowed many more residents of the United States to partake in the broadband bandwidth boom. This is largely due to the fact that there is already a plentiful network of coaxial cable spread across the continent, far more than fiber optic lines. You could say that cable got a head start with very little competition. Many telecom carriers are undoubtedly envious of the once entertainment revenue driven companies. Through the use of a cable modem, one can be hooked up to high speed Internet whereas other physical modems require phone land lines.Pros of Cable Internet 1. Advantages of cable Internet starts at the extreme-speed of the connection. Speeds of up to 12 Mbps can be obtained within a household enabling faster streaming of video, smoother online gaming, and faster downloads.2. Because no land line is required for cable, you are able to stay connected to the Internet continuously. There is no dialing required for the modem which is often touted as the greatest convenience in our fast paced society. Additionally, there are no phone bill costs associated with the Internet connection which have been an issue for customers having to call via Intralata long distance.3. Other connections such as DSL are substantially slower and can often cost twice as much to reach the speeds that cable Internet can achieve. The costs for this Internet connection is able to be offered substantially at lower cost per Mbps adding value to the consumer end because of this.4. Cable Internet connections are not just always on, but tend to remain more reliable than DSL or wireless Internet. Dropped connections are very rare and often only happen during important updates to the network, not during peak hours.5. You can additionally bundle your Internet with other services to add value and convenience to your monthly communications expenses. This can include phone service, broadband (of course), and cable television entertainment packages.Cons of Cable Internet 1. While you may have ordered the largest cable broadband bandwidth for your home, during peak hours you may find you don’t receive all the bandwidth you originally have ordered. This can also happen when too many are connected to your Internet connection in your home via your wireless router.2. The cost per Megabit is a fair price, however there are not any slow cable Internet connections being sold. This leaves you open to paying more and having to buy possible more bandwidth that you need resulting in higher monthly costs.3. Sometimes you are required to buy more than just the Internet service. Many cable companies have taken advantage of their place in the market and will insist you buy a cable television package in order to receive Internet services at all. This can alter the value when it comes to cost savings.4. Installation costs can be somewhat hefty if you didn’t have a coaxial cable running through your premises originally. This can run into the high $100+ bracket.5. Due to the Internet connection always be on, you will have to invest in a good anti-virus program to ensure your computer is kept safe. Not only that, but viruses can be uploaded to your computer much more efficiently with cable Internet, so keep that in mind.

Having a Wood Burning Stove Fitted – What Happened to Me When I Had to Replace My Old Parkray Boiler

First things first, the house or cottage in which we live was built in the late 19th century mainly of stone construction, for farm workers to live in close to their work on the farm ( normally called a tied cottage) and had been occupied by a family working on the farm prior to our move into the property in 1987, since when a certain amount of modernisation had been done by ourselves over the years, new bathroom, showers and kitchen etc.At the end of July this year we had the chimney sweep in to clean the soot from our two chimneys.The one that had been used non stop over last winter as our main heating was the worst as it had a Parkray multi fuel heater fitted into the wall with a surround of tiles and tiled hearth; this fire had been there since before we moved in and although pretty ugly had given good service over the years by heating four radiators and the hot water in the winter.We had it fuelled by anthracite eggs or ovals, which gave plenty of heat but this fuel is getting very expensive, it also comes with certain ecological issues attached being a fossil fuel, which spoils our carbon footprint. We had occasionally burnt wood in it but it was not an ideal wood burning stove due to the grate being built for a coal based fuel.”BAD NEWS” said the sweep when he had finished the job, “your back boiler is leaking into the grate and there is a lot of wet in the bottom of the grate”.So, we had to bite the bullet and replace the fire with a new one of some sort, we had looked at all the different options over the years and decided against oil because we have access to plenty of wood from the farm. Also most of the modern systems depend on having electricity to ignite and control their burners, and because we are subject to power cuts in the winter, just when one is most vulnerable to the cold; it was important for us that we had a system that will work on its own, we wanted it to continue to heat the water and the radiators upstairs by convection to keep the house warm until the power supply returns.Off we went to StoveTec in Hereford UK to look at what was available to us and just how much it would cost, we looked at all the models in the showroom and chose a Hunter multi fuel with internal boiler (Hunter are a part of the Parkray Group apparently), with single door with one clear pain of glass in the front, which I liked because it had none of the fiddly bits just clean lines and simple design.Steve the owner of StoveTec then arranged to come out to do a site survey on the next Wednesday; whereupon the measurements for the base and the layout of all the pipe work was checked, and the chimney stack was inspected from the garden.The quote, which was very reasonable and included the fitting of a new stainless steel chimney liner, was accepted and it was arranged for the men to start work the next week.The team duly arrived and proceeded to start with the removal of the original fireplace, in preparation, I had already turned off the water and drained the system with the garden hose prior to their arrival.As with all building workers, we made sure that copious amounts of tea, instant coffee and biscuits were available throughout the day in large mugs with a good quality tea bag per mug with various spoon-fulls of sugar and whole milk according to taste, which after the first day we learnt off by heart.The removal of the old fire place created a large amount of dust and noise from the hammer drill and chisel, and a large quantity of waste rubble and a pile of bricks that I decided to save for any small garden project which may require a few bricks, a barbecue comes to mind, which is not a high priority for us but may come in handy in the future .Once the old tiled hearth and surround had been broken up, the feed pipes to the boiler were now exposed enough to be able to get a hack saw in to cut the pipes and free up the stove for removal. It was very heavy and had to be manoeuvred onto a sack trolley to be wheeled out of the house and lifted in to the truck for scrap.It was then that we were able to see what we thought was the full extent of the space available at the back of the fire, we could see a large amount of brick and stone infill, for what we thought must have been the original cast iron black grate; complete with an oven on the side, which looked so pretty in pictures but were extremely difficult to get the oven up to temperature and were dirty as the fire was open and not enclosed; but they normally had a trivet to hang or place a pan or kettle over the fire for cooking soups and stews.But No, they had to remove two more courses of brick before the final aperture was revealed in all its glory, it really made the room look so much bigger, once all the rubble had been removed and a bit of tidy up had been done.Meanwhile the men had placed the climbing frame and ladders up onto the roof and around the chimney stack so that the new stainless steel liner could be lowered into the chimney stack, once it was in place a plate was cemented in and a new chimney pot and cowl fitted to top out the flu.Where the liner came down into the fireplace it was fitted into an enamelled stove pipe via a socket fitting on the end of the cut flu liner, and then into the socket on top of the new Hunter Stove.Before the new stove can be placed into position there had to be a new base fitted on the floor of the cavity, we finally decided on large pieces of slate, which is more in keeping with an old cottage than the polished granite that we thought about first, this is fixed in place on the floor of the base level with a coat of cement and tapped level.The next job was to fit a metal plate to the inside of the fire place above the new stove, where the new flu came through a hole cut in the middle to block out the rest of the chimney and stop any of the soot from the old fire falling down into the room in the future; this was sealed around all the edges to finish the lower part of the chimney off (this was later sprayed with black enamel paint).With the hot water pipes connected to the boiler (the out flow hot to the top, and the inflow connected to the bottom on the opposite side of the boiler cold), the water was then turned back on and the system filled to check for leaks and and test under pressure with the pump running.Then it was all systems go for ignition to see how it all worked with a fire burning in the grate. It was simply amazing just how fast the boiler heated up and hot water started to move up the pipes to the hot water cistern. It is now a week since we have had it up and running and we have now got the hang of it managing to keep it in over night with the aid of some very dry seasoned oak blocks.There is no doubt in my mind that the main thing with running a wood burning stove is to have dry seasoned wood at all times otherwise it will not burn correctly and it willl not get hot enough, plus it will clog up the chimney with tar and get the glass front of the door all covered in a dirty black coating of soot and tar. I always think that if the wood burns slowly down like a cigarette glowing across its length the stove is working correctly and that the wood is dry.The best types of wood to burn locally around us is oak or ash if you can get it, but I also have access to plenty of willow, which is OK if very dry, I occasionally get a bit of pine, which burns very fast and noisily spitting and popping away in the grate.I can thoroughly recommend our wood burning stove and I look forward to many years of warm winters by the fire in the future.

Accounting Sub Journals and Cash Book

The accounting procedure, for recording information, involves two steps, namely journalizing and posting. It follows that every business must maintain a journal (books of original or prime entry) and a ledger (principal book). Thus the system of book-keeping originally envisages that all the transactions must be recorded first in the book of original record, i.e., journal and then each transaction so recorded in the journal should be posted in the principal book, i.e., ledger. Subsequently it was experienced that the labor of recording each transaction with narration in the journal and then posting each entry in two different accounts in the ledger was enormous. The procedure was more time-consuming and resulted in higher establishment cost.It is but natural that in every business most of the transactions relate to receipts and payments of cash; purchases of goods ;. sales of goods etc. It was found to be convenient and economical to keep separate books to record each particular class of transactions. Each separate book meant to record transactions of a particular class is the book of original or prime entry. It is also known as sub-journal or subsidiary book. The system under which transactions of similar nature are entered in the relevant’ subsidiary book and on the basis of which ledger is written is known as the ‘practical system of book- keeping’. This system reduces labor and time of recording the transactions as impersonal accounts, viz., sales account, purchases account etc., receive the posting of totals and not of individual transactions. However, this system also conforms to the basic rules of the double entry system.Generally the following subsidiary books are used in the business:(1) Cash book : records receipts and payments of cash including transactions relating to bank;(2) Purchases book: records credit purchases of goods meant for sale or for conversion into finished goods;(3) Returns outwards book: records return of the goods to the suppliers due to several reasons;(4) Sales book: records credit sales of the goods dealt in by the business;(5) Returns inwards book : records the return of goods by the customers to the business ; (vi) Bills receivable book: records the receipts of bills of exchange, promissory notes and hundies of various parties;(6) Bills payable book: records the issue of bills exchange, promissory notes and hundies to the various parties:Advantages of sub-journals(1) It results in saving of time by (a) enabling the recording procedure to be carried on simultaneously in different subsidiary books and (b) by posting the periodical totals in the impersonal accounts.(2) It makes information available regarding each particular class of transactions.(3) At the time of preparing trial balance the checking is easier because books being many, different persons can carry out the job.Cash BookIn any business, perhaps, the largest number of transactions of one nature must relate to cash and bank. It is so because every transaction must, ultimately, result in a cash transaction. Now if every cash transaction is to be recorded in journal, it will involve an enormous amount of labor in debiting or crediting cash or bank account in the ledger for each transaction. Therefore, it is convenient to have a separate book, the cash book, to record such transactions. Maintaining of cash book removes the necessity of having cash and bank accounts in the ledger. This book enables us to know the balance of cash in hand and at bank at any point of time.Cash book consists of cash and bank accounts taken out of ledger and maintained separately; thus it is a substitute of ledger for cash and bank accounts. It is also a book of original entry because cash and bank transactions are not recorded in any other subsidiary book.Types of cash booksThe type of cash book to be used by any business will depend upon its nature and requirements. It may be anyone of the following:(1) Single column cash book (cash column).(2) Double column cash book (cash and discount columns).(3) Triple column cash book (cash, discount and bank columns).(4) Bank cash book (bank and discount columns).Generally, each business will use anyone of the above types of cash book along with “petty cashbook” which is maintained on memorandum basis.Distinction between cash A/c and Cash bookActually cash book is a perfect substitute of cash account. In both, cash transactions are recorded date wise in order of occurrence. Cash balance as on any date can be ascertained by balancing both on any day desired. Yet there are some differences between the two as given below:Cash account1. Is an account in the ledger.2. Cash account is part of the ledger. Cash account is opened in the ledger in which posting is done from some book of original entry i.e. journal3. In cash account posting is not followed by narration.4. It only records one aspect of transaction involving cash and bank.Cash book1. Is a separate book of accounts forming part of accounting system.2. Cash book records entries directly from transactions and these is no need for a book of prime entry.3. In cash book entries are followed by narration also.4. It records both the aspects of this transaction in cash and bank columns to complete double entry posting.

"Polynesian Bodies" – Why Polynesian Bodies Build Muscle Better

Polynesian people are descendants of those early mariners that crossed the great waters and became the original inhabitants of the South Pacific Islands. In order to survive those long cold oceanic journeys, their Polynesian bodies evolved to develop maximum muscle building capabilities as a means of generating and preserving body temperature.This was a direct adaptation to an environmental factor. Those that could not adapt died, whereas the survivors carried with them genetic advantages, creating a hybrid body of sorts, capable of performing enormous feats of physical labor, on very little calories, and very little water.Colonization of the Pacific Islands only encouraged the Polynesian body to propagate these gene characteristics, as the early Islanders literally hacked their homes out of the forests with their bare hands. Domesticating wildlife and horticulture, was a herculean feat, and the scarcity of fresh water developed a need for the Polynesian body to store fluids efficiently.These early evolutionary patterns form the basis of the contemporary Polynesian body. It enables Polynesian bodies to:1. Build muscle easily2. Possess unique strength to mass capabilities3. Withstand harsh environmental conditions more easily4. Endure long periods with little food and little waterUnfortunately these adaptations also mean Polynesian bodies will1. Store excess energy more easily in the form of body fat2. Store excess water subcutaneously3. Burn calories at a slower more gradual paceIn the absence of the extreme physical labors performed by our Polynesian ancestors, and the readily abundant food in western cultures, it is no surprise that Polynesian bodies have a tendency to gain unsightly body fat. This storage of excess energy was a survival adaptation for the days of leanness prevalent in the island cultures, but completely absent in western cultures.Here are 3 of the best tips to improve a Polynesian Body1. Exercise, choosing intense weight training over cardio.Polynesian bodies are designed to work out with maximum intensity. Once or twice a week is sufficient. If you are weight training 5 – 6 days a week, I guarantee that you can train twice as hard once or twice a week. Another way of looking at it is this: If you can weight train for 90 min’s, I assure you, you can train harder for 40 min’s. Remember that you can train hard or you can train long, but you can’t do both. Always choose to train hard. Intense training triggers the release of muscle building hormones into the blood stream. Jane Fonda workouts do not. Polynesian bodies respond well to incredibly intense training regimes performed less often.2. Don’t eat everyday.This one may come as a shock to you, especially if you are Polynesian, but it is true. You may have heard that if you don’t eat every few hours then your body goes into starvation mode, yada, yada, yada. Who came up with this idea, did they get the rest of the day off for such brilliance? It is simply not true. Polynesian bodies have descended from a genetic strain of humans that could survive for weeks without food and rest and very little water.Early man tracked herds over vast expanses, on foot, and when they finally engaged their prey they could somehow muster the strength and energy, in this depleted state, to run down and kill a beast more than ten times their size. I know one thing’s for sure. Put a bunch of these early hominids in the NFL and they would stomp the snot out of those juice heads. We need to tap into that power, and utilize the body’s stored energy.The idea that you feel tired all the time, and that you need to eat constantly to maintain your energy levels are fabrications of the weak modern mind that prevent us from exploiting the vastness of our true human potential.3. Eat real, natural, unprocessed foods indigenous to the islands, and eat just enough to be satisfied.A Polynesian body can store more water, so drink plenty to discourage water retention.Organic fruits, vegetables, seafood, coconut oil, taro, along with chicken, pork and beef are the mainstay of the Polynesian diet. These are the foods which Polynesian bodies have adapted to assimilate efficiently through hundreds of years of evolution. Polynesians should not consume processed foods. Canned foods and commercially packaged foods combined with the naturally high fat Polynesian diets create metabolic mayhem in the Polynesian body. Eliminate all processed and man made foods gradually.Through the evolutionary process of natural selection, Polynesian bodies can become the ultimate muscle building powerhouse, or an unsightly storage system for excess energy and water weight. Polynesian bodies can build muscle more efficiently because they possess slightly lower metabolisms, and have a genetic propensity to store more water. Over 70% of muscle is water. This is a wonderful adaptation for gaining muscle mass, but slightly detrimental when the desire is to burn body fat, and flush subcutaneous water. Polynesian bodies also possess a unique hormonal environment that allows muscle gain to take place more effectively. A gift to the contemporary Polynesian body from their ancestors who survived some of the most brutal oceanic endeavors.To approach genetic potential a Polynesian bodybuilder should train with extreme intensity, less often, control caloric intake and manage their water correctly.

Fax Reverse Lookup – Reveal the Owner of a Fax Machine Number Number

A fax reverse lookup service is an aide in finding the owner of a fax number, which are no more than regular phone numbers. These types of phone numbers can be used as dedicated fax numbers or can be used as alternate fax/telephone numbers. Fax phones can be traced back to the owner, the same as regular phones.A fax number can be listed as published or unpublished. If it’s published, the number is easily traced with most free online phone directories. However, unpublished numbers are different because an unpublished number requires more work to search and find the owner using a reverse fax directory that can be found over the internet. In order to conduct an online fax reverse lookup, you can expect to pay a nominal fee anywhere from $1.00 up to approximately $15 – depending on the online service.If the fax in question is repeatedly sent by the same person or company, then more than likely it’s being sent as spam. You can then report it to your own phone company as a harassing call. Most times, the fax number is printed on the cover sheet, but if if you do not find it listed there, you can use your caller ID device to view the number. If it isn’t listed on the cover sheet, or if it shows up on the Caller ID device as unknown, you can call your phone carrier and ask them if they would trace the number for you. They will cooperate more, if the caller is a repeat spammer or harassing or threatening you in any way. If it escalates and becomes more serious, by all means get the authorities involved.There are many reputable fax reverse lookup directories online with a database of millions. Some online services are not as good as others, so make sure to surf the internet until you locate a professional reverse number phone search service. Whitepages, an online company is a good start, and it’s a reputable online directory – however, it only works for published fax numbers and not the unpublished ones.Once you find a good reverse number phone service, it’s then just a simple matter of entering the 10-digit number into the form which in turn reveals the city and state where the number is located. It will then direct you further so that you can get a detailed report, including the full name of the owner, home or business address, phone company and carrier and all regional information – usually with immediate results if available online or, if not available online, then guaranteed results within 48 hours, or your money back.With a good fax reverse directory service, you’ll be able to conduct a fax reverse lookup in complete privacy and always 100% confidential!

9 Important Factors to Consider While Selecting a WordPress Hosting

WordPress has become an inevitable part of any blogger’s life. So, choosing the host provider for WordPress is as important as your blog. If you do not make the right choice, there are high chances that all your blogs/contents go in vain. Also, it is necessary that, you make an informed decision rather than just choosing it just because your friend chose it. We know that, almost every Host provider gives innumerable choices, resources and attractive packages. However, it is in our hands to see through the offers that they provide and choose wisely. Here are few things that you need to keep in mind, before choosing a WordPress Host provider.1) Price:Anything that is economic, attracts us. We ultimately end up buying the cheaper product/service. However, you should not jump into a conclusion of choosing a provider on the basis of price alone. There are chances that cheaper services may not be of great quality and satisfy your requirements. Also, it does not necessarily mean that the big name providers are always suitable. Check all the features and the offers of all the providers and later compare the prices. This will help you to take a better decision.2) Preference:It is a known fact that, each WP host provider, offers a variety of services and differs in characteristics. Not all the providers give what you want. You might have a set of requirements or preferences which matches with only some of the host providers. This way, you can easily shortlist the host providers.3) Free WP hosting:Free WP hosting is a great chance for new comers where they can share the server space with someone else for free. To start with, it is good. However, in a long run it is not recommended. Usually, the person/forum that provides the free server space will not be reliable. There are chances of them putting their own ads without your knowledge. Also, they might add some unnecessary text or images that will have no connection with your website. These services are highly unreliable as the free hosting can stop at any point and the sad thing is that you can’t even question the individual or the forum about it. Thus, if you are really serious about page or website, do not opt free hosting services.4) Customer Reviews and feedbacks:This factor is something you have to be very careful about. Nowadays, there are high chances of faking reviews in social media. So, try to read as many reviews as possible. Post questions in forums like Quora and get to know the honest reviews and feedbacks. Check if the host providers will get back to you in 24 hours in case of any query or issues. This will help you in a great scale.5) Load Time/Speed:Currently, almost 90% of the providers provide 99% up-time. However, there are only a handful of providers that load your pages in very few milliseconds. So, you have to go for providers that assure and provide speed.6) Support and responsiveness:Providing support and being available always is something you have to look for. Not all the companies are approachable and available 24/7/365. So, when you choose, look for the platforms that can be contacted via various means like phone, email, chat and ticket submission.7) User Interface:This is something inevitable. When you choose a host provider, it should be in such a way that you don’t call them every step in your setting up process. The user interface and the dashboard must be easy to use.8) Backups and restoration:Backups have become a crucial part of any host provider. Also, it must be easy to restore data easily. So, see to that, the host provider you choose allows automated backups and single click restoration.9) Security:Make sure your provider notifies you in case of security threats (hacking) and also a high standard security system that monitors your site time and again.Now that you have some idea on how to choose a WP host provider, it is you who has to make the final move.
