Achieve a Flawless You

ave you had one of those days where you feel fat and ugly? This will teach you how to achieve a great looking and feeling you.

Cleanse your face regularly. Be sure to moisturize. Keep makeup simple, like you're not wearing anything.
Brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day. Brush your teeth in a circular motion, and make sure you are using a soft bristled brush. Also make sure to brush or scrape your tongue; germs that cause bad breath can be trapped.
Health is vital to beauty. Have a balanced diet, keeping junk food for special occasion. Exercise regularly.
Your clothes should match you. Make sure that what you wear matches your figure and coloring. Wear what your style is, not just what everybody else wears!
Take care of your hands and feet. Exfoliate regularly, and use lotion. Nail polish is a fun way to make your hands and feet stand out, if you want. One popular and classy type is the French manicure.
Be optimistic. Don't be over optimistic, but don't be negative either. Make sure you stay bright most of the time. Remember, you only have one life. Finding what you do best might take a while. So, enter after-school activities, clubs, or just do what you love doing.

Do anything that matches and flatters you.
Treat other people with kindness and you'll make friends easily.

Make sure you never act "show-offy" as this can give the wrong impression to other people.

Apply Makeup Naturally

Most of the time, you see girls wearing makeup that is too obvious (for example, fair skinned blondes wearing heavy black eye makeup). Sometimes exaggerated looks can be excellent, but makeup is really produced to enhance features. Hopefully, this article will help those who are aiming for a natural look.

Method One

Apply a tinted moisturizer and set with a translucent powder according to your skin color and tone.
Make sure it matches your skin, unless you're covering blemishes in which case the foundation should be slightly lighter than the other one.
Next, the eyes. Apply a small amount of shimmer right by the tear duct. For eyeshadow, use a one shade darker than your skin. Then, mascara. If you have blonde, red, or light hair, you should apply dark brown mascara, which will give you a softer look. For a really easy natural look just put on some clear mascara.
Apply a clear or slightly tinted lip gloss to finish the look.

Method Two

Choose a foundation that matches your skin tone (light, medium, or dark) and style (matt, natural, or dewy).
Apply foundation by first putting on moisturizer to clean skin. Dab foundation onto cheeks, nose, and forehead. Blend it with your fingers and use downward strokes to flatten baby hairs.
Apply concealer under your eyelids and smooth with fingers.
Apply blush using a color that matches your natural glow. Apply with fingers or a sponge to the apples of your cheeks.
Apply powder that matches your foundation color. Use a brush and tap of the excess powder. After waiting several minutes for your makeup to settle, start at the center and blend downwards.

Schedule a free makeover at a beauty counter in a department store. Ask them for a natural look, listen carefully, and consider using similar techniques if you like the results. Sometimes a professional knows best.
If you have oily skin, use a powder or else your pores will show through.
When choosing a foundation, make sure it is your skin tone. If not, you will always look unnatural.
Choose makeup that is matte, with no glitter.

E-Filling For Your Greencard Replacement

As my green card renewal countdown,I had to do some research on how to file my green card replacement. There are very few form that the USCIS allow you to e-file,which is I-90 Application to Replace Permanent Residence Card & 129 – Petition for a Non immigrant Worker. In my case, I can do the e-filing, the I-90 application. By e-filing your form you have to follow certain rules which is very important. After I e-file my form I would be getting a notice on the mail from the USCIS that will provide me a USCIS-scheduled appointment for capturing biometrics and photographs at an Application Support Center.

I must then bring all my materials to show who I am on my Biometrics appointment.
When you are e-filing your form , make sure make a copy of single form you have to submitted.

How to Overcome an Addiction

There are many types of addictions and most can be treated the same way. Here are some simple pointers on how to go about changing your addiction.

Admit there is a problem and be willing and open to change. Admit that we are powerless over drugs and that your lives have become unmanageable. Most people can't or won't. Most people won't admit they don't want to quit. They say they should and that they want to, but deep down they don't really want to. But that's okay, you can still get help. There are two main types of treatment: community-based or 12 step, both can work. They usually don't because people continue to be unable to accept
Try community-based if it suits you. Joining a new club, sports team, or other kinds of community will help you make new friends and start a new chapter of your life in which addiction is not a part.
Try a 12 Step program if it suits you. If you want to try a 12 step program, go to AA (Alcoholics Anonymous), NA (Narcotics Anonymous), SA (Smokers Anonymous), or one of the other programs that use the set of guiding principles for recovery from addictive, compulsive, or other behavioral problems that was originally developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Unfortunately most people won't go until they are so desperate and have run out of any other options so now they are ready to listen.
If neither of these approaches suit your needs, you can still try Rational Recovery. This method allows you to gain confidence, take charge, and leave your addiction behind in a healthy and private manner.
As everyone should, get rid of all prejudices and be willing and open-minded.

Go to your first meeting. Let them know it's your first meeting and you know you have a problem and need help. Ask them to please help you. Get the literature they recommend and read it. Get a sponsor. "Shut up and listen." Go to at least one meeting a day, better yet three or more. Get involved with the group. Get in a home group. Pray. Most important work the steps, but that should be a given if you've got the right sponsor. If he or she doesn't have you working the steps get rid of him or her and get a new one. Very few people will do those tips because deep down they don't really want sobriety, but even if you don't want it and you do those things sobriety will find you. It's a promise.

Be careful when things start to get better. Don't wait on that fourth step. Many of us have based all our decisions on shame, guilt and remorse. So when we start doing well we have to screw it up because we don't believe we deserve it. Complete steps fully, get through the entire fourth step. There is no 3 1/2 step. Just do it. Now, go to a meeting for the rest of the process.

Tolerate Other Guys Staring at Your Pretty Wife

I know every couple happened this to them. Do heads turn wherever your wife goes? If it's something that you don't feel it's worth trying to stop, here's how to make the best of it.

Resolve any trust or insecurity issues that might be at the root of your discomfort. If you trust your wife, and if other men are just looking (not actually hitting on her or bothering her), then there is nothing to feel uncomfortable about.
Realize that you cannot control most things in this world, particularly the actions of strangers. There is no law against looking.
Look at it from their perspective. It's human nature to look at beautiful things. That's probably one of the reasons you married her, so you've got to accept the consequences.

Tell your wife that you've noticed other guys looking at her and ask her what her feelings are about it. She'll likely be flattered and enjoy the attention, but if not, the two of you can discuss a plan of action if it continues to happen.
Be proud of it. Remind yourself that she chose to marry you because she loves you. The stares of other men are a compliment to her beauty, and should also make you realize how fortunate you are. If this woman is so good-looking that guys keep looking at her, and YOU'RE the one taking her home tonight, stand tall, look the other guys in the face, and smirk. Flaunt it.
Remember,she's probably not even paying attention. She's probably trying to stop one of the kids from pulling the other kid's hair. Also remember she married YOU. Not the creep staring at her.

If someone goes beyond staring, and starts harassing your wife or being rude, it becomes appropriate to say or do something.

Don't ever tell your wife what to wear. It may cause a situation you could've avoided and will regret

Is it Golodomor or Holodomor?

Few years ago I got to watched this movie called " Shiender List". It's a movie about Hitler killing the Jews . Making the Jews work so hard without making them eat any food. If the Jews get so skinny and cannot perform their job any longer, Hitler will order to kill them. It was a very sad movie. Take note, that movie is based on real life. The holodomor remind me of the movie.

Here is the facts about the holodomor. The Soviet famine of 1932-1933 affected most major grain-producing agricultural areas of the Soviet Union, including Northern Caucasus, Volga Region, South Urals, West Siberia, Kazakhstan, and Ukraine. The Communist governments of the Soviet Republics siezed grains from the peasantry and exported most of their Republic's agricultural output to the West in order to sustain the rapid economic transformation - "Industrialization" and "Collectivization" - policy designed by Joseph Stalin.

The term 'Golodomor' means the «mass hunger» or the «great hunger» that caused million of victims throughout the Soviet Union in 1932-1933.
Scholars estimate about 6-8 million peasants deaths during the famine of 1932-1933:
Central Russia - 2 million,Kazhastan - 1.7 million,Ukraine - 1.3 million,North, Caucasus -1 million.

Was the Golodomor a genocide?

Some Ukrainian politicians, including Viktor Yuschenko, have recently argued that the famine may have been designed as an attack on Ukraine, and therefore, should fall under the legal definition of genocide. However, the attempt by Ukrainian nationalists to manipulate the historical facts in order to make Europe recognize the 'Goldomor' as 'genocidal famine' did not find the support among the EU members. European scholars and politicians agreed that the famine of 1932-1933 in the Soviet Union was NOT an attempt to destroy the Ukrainian nation, but an ineffective economic policy of the Communist governments of the Republics of the Soviet Union.

Golodomor or Holodomor?

Since Viktor Yuschenko assumed power over Ukraine back in 2004 in the revote (52% to 44%), his approval rating has been decreasing significantly and is now below 10%. In order to keep his electorate under control and alleviate social tensions, the political populist Yuschenko decided to unite the frustrating Ukrainian nation against the common enemy , Soviet Union (and Russia). In order to politicize the issue of 'golodomor' and attract as much world's attention as possible, the word 'golodomor' have been transformed into 'holodomor' making it looks and sounds like 'holocaust', and therefore, could be considered as a genocide. However, the European Parliament in its resolution on 23 October 2008 rejected to call the famine of 1932-1933 in Ukraine as "an act of genocide" but a crime that was "cynically and cruelly planned by Stalin's regime in order to force through the Soviet Union's policy of collectivization of agriculture".

Nowadays the internet is a crazy place, and it is ever so important to keep your kids safe. Here is how to set limits and review a sites content.

   Let your kids know that before they visit a new website you need to approve it. You might want create a "safe sight list" or ask them to tell you they are going on the internet.
  If the home page or even the address makes you uncomfortable it is probably not appropriate.
  Chat rooms and blogs are usually very risky even if they are designated for kids
  If the site has "FAQs" read them. They will usually summarize alot of the features of the site

     Follow your gut feeling. Even if your kids resent you; you need to remember that you are making these decisions for their own good.
     If you can't decide get a second opinion. Ask a friend with kids what she thinks of the site.
     If you approve a site know the password and check what your child writes periodically

     the internet is a predators playground it is your job to keep your children safe.

Become a Fashion Designer

Fashion designing - sounds like a dream job, huh? It can also be one of the hardest professions to get into. But you can do it with a little hard work. There are many types of Fashion Designers. Some work for themselves, others work at medium sized companies, and others work for international businesses. Find the right type of business for you, but first you have to become a designer. This will take time, but be patient. It is worth the long run!

    Make a list of companies or brands that sell fashion. Find out what country they are from. Also write what type of fashion each company makes. These are called "fashion categories". Some examples of categories are: swimwear, lingerie, sportswear, junior sportswear, career wear and such. Decide what category interests you the most. Now start a scrapbook with pictures of that type of fashion. If you want to add sketches, that will add to the notebook. Also make a list of companies or brands in that category.
    Take an art class in drawing. Learn to draw drapery. If you can find a class that draws people or "life drawing", take that too. If you can't draw real people, start drawing from photos of fashion models. Also learn about color, and mixing color. Know what colors look good together and how color groups are assembled.
    Get a mannequin that you can pin fabric on or drape* to make designs to see how they would fit a body so that way you won't sew something and then try it on and it turns out it looks terrible.
           Draping is another word for covering, dressing, or hanging cloth in loose folds
    Learn to sew clothes. Study the patterns and become familiar with sewing pattern shapes. Sew for real people so that you get familiar with body shapes and fit. Also learn about fabric. Know what fabrics are made from (silk? wool? cotton?) and how they are woven (velvet, twill, satin).        
                       Make clothes for other people. Yes, that may be more like dressmaking than design, particularly if your subject is conservative. But you will learn a great deal about dealing with a customer and fitting the human body in all its variations. You can charge money for your work.
    Learn about fashion trends. Visit such web sites as pantone . com to see what colors are going to be in fashion. Try to predict what fashion will be popular in the future.
    Learn how fashion is sold: stores, online and such. What are the major department stores? What stores sell the category of fashion you are interested in? Also learn about the "target customer". This is the type of person who will buy the fashion. What is the average age, income, lifestyle and other traits of the shopper? What do they want to buy?
    Consider getting professional training. If you live close to a community college or university, see if that school has a program in fashion (this subject may be in a Family & Consumer Science Dept.), costume (Drama Dept.) or fashion merchandising. Plan to spend at least 2 years in any fashion design program. Don't feel that you have to spend a lot of money to get this training. Many states have public colleges or trade schools with excellent fashion training.
    Seek an internship. Ask your teacher or instructor about this. Some companies want interns to be enrolled in a specific course, and others don't care.
    Portfolio and Resume: When you graduate, you should have a portfolio of your best work. Usually these illustrations are of the one category that you are interesting in finding a job in. A good portfolio will sometimes have sample garments too. You may want to add production flats with each drawing to show the details, also fabric swatches for each design. 14" x 17" is a good size for a portfolio.
   First Job: think of your first job as 'graduate school'. You won't be a designer, but you might work for one. It will be hard work, long hours, and lots of exciting times. As you work, you will move up the career ladder, working at many positions before you become a designer. A professional designer has huge responsibilities, and only a seasoned pro qualifies to take on those tasks.
  11. Start at home by sketching down some of your clothing ideas on a piece of paper and keep them in a special folder, keep editing it till its just right and explore with colors. USE YOUR IMAGINATION !

     Develop a working knowledge of design-related software programs such as Adobe Photo shop and Illustrator.
     Subscribe to fashion magazines such as Vogue and Elle to keep yourself up-to-date with fashion trends. Also consider subscription to trade newspapers such as "Woman's Wear Daily", or regional papers such as "Apparel News". This is what the pros read, and you should too.
     Learn about historical fashion. Know fashion styles from Ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome, through the Renaissance, Elizabethan, Victorian and 19th centuries. Know the important 20th century designers: Chanel, Dior, Poiret and the others.
     Learn about ethnic or regional costumes: China, India, Africa, Mexico and others. Know the styles that people wear around the world, and how current fashion borrows from those styles.
     Go to shops which sell materials and have a good feel to them so you know which fabric will be suitable for which type of clothes.
     Becoming familiar with the computer and research is something that all fashion designers need to succeed. Try asking some people that you know who know their way around computers to give you some great tips.Cut bits of fabric that you like and buttons and lace etc. and make a collage and maybe frame it.
     Take classes in sketching and fashion illustration. Your ideas will usually be presented in sketch form. Computer aided drafting (CAD) is another useful skill.
     Professional designers get ideas on their own time. Work hours are spent dealing with vendors, fitting models, publicity, production schedules and problems.
    Be aware of how far in the future the fashion industry works to produce new styles. When fall merchandise is being shown in the fashion mags, spring or even the season after it is the focus of the designer. The color forecasts are a year ahead.
     Watch "Project Runway".

How to Be Feminine

People are so sensitive about gender issues these days that it's almost impossible to talk about what's feminine or masculine without stepping on someone's toes. If you're reading this, though, you're probably looking to get in touch with your more feminine side - those non-physical aspects of yourself that make you feel more like a girl or a woman. There's nothing wrong with being feminine, or masculine, or androgynous--we all have our preferences, and if femininity is yours, here's some advice on how to cultivate that.

    Sit down and think back to times when you've felt especially feminine. Remember those moments in detail - How did you feel? What were you wearing? What were you doing? This is the first and most important step because it reveals what you consider to be feminine, and that's ultimately what matters most. Focus on those details, and work on recreating those conditions and that feeling in yourself.
    Know the difference between being feminine and being girly. Being girly implies being feminine but in a youthful and materialistic sort of way. There's nothing wrong with that, but it's not the only way to be feminine. You can be 70 years old and wear a silk bathrobe and still be feminine because ultimately, you can still do the things that make you feel more like a woman.
      Love every inch of your body. The body is what makes you female, so how can you be feminine if you don't embrace your female form? A woman's body naturally has a higher body fat percentage than that of a man, so don't dismiss your curves. On the other hand, part of loving your body is taking care of it, so don't dismiss your cholesterol levels, either. Fortunately, you don't have to look like a catwalk model in order to be reasonably healthy.
   Be graceful. In most societies, women are thought to be more naturally graceful than men. There are always exceptions, of course, and it is totally up to you whether you choose gracefulness to be an expression of your femininity. Generally, however, many women feel more feminine when they make smooth movements, rather than jerky, powerful ones. And, of course, consider the context. You might want to be fierce on the volleyball court or shooting range, and svelte at a bar or in the bedroom. There's no rule saying you have to be graceful (or feminine) all the time.
    Dance. Dancing is an extension of your body, and through dance you can find ways to emphasize your femininity. Belly dancing, for example, accentuates the natural curves of a woman's form. A partner dance, like salsa or the waltz, can also help you feel more feminine because such dances are built upon the traditional differences between men and women--the man guides, while the woman follows and makes more fluid, extravagant movements.
    Be playful. Let's ditch the whole idea that being feminine means being perfect and ethereal. For those times when grace is lacking and you fall flat on your face in the middle of a room, the true test of your femininity is your ability to laugh it off! Because think about it: Taking life too seriously isn't very feminine in most people's books, and it's not very healthy overall. So smile a lot, flirt, tease, and play. Have fun! Ultimately, being feminine is about feeling at ease with yourself, and you can't feel at ease if you're too stiff and somber, so be the opposite: lighthearted and playful.

     These steps can also be followed by a man who wishes to get in touch with his feminine side.

     What is considered to be "feminine" and "masculine" varies from culture to culture. Some cultures even have a "third" gender.

Keep up With Your Internet Savvy Kids

Kids sometimes want to hide the fact that they are doing things online of which their parents don't approve. Here's how to stay on top of what your kids are up to online. Kids don't say savvy anymore. That's so old.

    Learn to use the computer. If you don't understand at least the basics of using your computer and internet programs, your kids will be able to take advantage of your lack of knowledge. Look for community courses, online tutorials, or read help manuals for the programs your kids use. Don't count on your kids to show you everything; they may leave out information that would allow you to control their internet experience. Of course, if you found this, you obviously know at least a little bit already.
    Research your programs' parental controls. Many programs that allow you to access the internet also let you exercise some control over what your kids can and can't do. Certain programs will let you block questionable sites, keep kids from talking to strangers, or conceal passwords so they don't give them out to anyone. Many even allow you to customize settings to be age appropriate for each child in your family. Find out what parental controls are offered with your current software and what additional programs you can purchase. Choose a password for yourself that your kids are unlikely to guess and don't tell them what it is. Check the parental control settings from time to time to make sure they haven't been changed.
    Limit your kids' computer time. If your kids are constantly online, they're more likely to sneak onto sites you don't want them visiting. Set a limit for their daily computer time and stick to it. If they tell you they need to use the computer for homework, ask them what the assignment is and check in on them to make sure they're staying on task. Watch the time here too. A child who spends hours doing research for a one page paper on worms is probably up to something.
    Learn the tricks. The original intent of this article was to alert parents on this site how to tell kids to keep parents from being fully aware of the sites their children are visiting. The bad news is that these articles are unlikely to go away. The good news is that they're just as available to you as they are to your kids. Check wikiHow and other sites for such tips and tricks and you'll know how your kids may try to conceal a visit to a website you don't approve of. (A list of some of these how-tos is provided below.)
    Talk to your kids. As your children get older, you will have less and less control over their internet access. Schools, libraries, and many other places offer computers for the public to use. Your best bet, for older kids especially, is to sit down and discuss your concerns about the internet and explain why you don't want them going on certain sites. Do your own research; don't just repeat what you heard from a fear inspiring news story. Kids probably know a lot about the sites you'll be discussing, either from friends or from personal experience, so make sure you have your facts accurate. Be prepared to listen and discuss, and have realistic expectations. Older kids will more than likely talk to people online who they do not know in real life. As long as you discuss ground rules about acceptable conversation and information that should not be shared, this should not be a problem. Talking to kids about your expectations helps them to understand your concerns and gives them an opportunity to use the internet responsibly on their own. Keeping the lines of communication about internet use open will also help you to keep tabs on what your kids are up to without constantly having to micromanage them.

     If you use parental control features or programs to block certain web content, you may be inadvertently blocking sites that could be useful to your child. Blocking all images of nudity may seem like a good idea, but what happens when your child needs to do a report on Michelangelo's "David"? Look for parental controls that offer customizing options to suit you family's needs.
     Here is a passive way to monitor your children's Internet usage: put their computer in a common area, such as the family room, with the screen facing out into the room. They will be much more careful about where they go online if someone could walk in and see the screen at any time. If your children have laptops, turn off wireless and make them plug into the router to connect. (Make sure your neighbors don't have open wireless networks your children can connect to or this won't work.)

How to Discipline a Child

No matter where a child misbehaves, it is acceptable to talk to them, and ask them to behave. At times, the problem might only be one where a child wants to get something, that you do not want them to get. Explain why, in a calm and loving voice. At other times, and to avoid being the weak parent with the child who is obnoxious in public places, or the overbearing parent who snaps and spanks a child in the aisle of a grocery store, you need to form a plan.

    Define your discipline strategy, in writing, in a time of calm. Don't make it up in response to a problem, or you're likely to overreact. Even if you throw the paper away when done (do not do so), write it down anyway. Written words force you to make very clear decisions.
    Include an escalation strategy, so that if the first disciplinary action fails, you have a back up plan.
    Recognize when a discipline situation is necessary. At that exact moment be sure to apply your strategy, without giving it a second thought or consideration. Any strategy is most effective when applied confidently and consistently, so your child knows exactly when they are overstepping the bounds you set. If immediate disciplinary action is not possible at that particular moment, then wait until you get home. This must be understood by both you and the child as the highest priority to be effective.
    Give a warning to the child the consequences of their actions. (For example, if you disobey me, your getting a time out.")
    # Understand that when the disciplinary action is completed, review why they got into trouble, but do so calmly so you do not scare your child. Ask them not to do that again, explain what will happen if the behavior is repeate. Give your child a hug and a kiss, and assure them you love them.
    Learn that it is important that you each have trust and affection for each other. Children thrive better when they have certain rules to follow, because it gives them the feeling that they are cared for and loved.

    If you have other children never compare them with their brothers or sisters ,that could lead them into low self esteem or make them feel like they have no worth.
     Never tell kids things like "you make me sad" or cry infront of them if they did something very wrong that makes them feel sad and lowers their self esteem.
     For young children, one minute of "time-out" per year of age is a good standard. Longer than that and they feel abandoned, and thus lose trust in you.
     To encourage older children to change behavior, write the problem down, discuss it, and guide the child in developing his or her own correction plan. Make it measurable, and include a punishment for failure (e.g. grounding) and a reward for success (e.g. you will be trusted with this and not bothered about it again unless necessary). Do not make the punishment or reward based on money or possessions; this will lead to neurotic behavior in adulthood (e.g. buying things to feel better about yourself).
     Everyone needs multiple chances to learn, and everyone needs a fresh start. Don't escalate for things repeated a week apart by a young child (i.e. pre-pubescent) -- just for those repeated in the same day. Young children don't have the same way of remembering things as older children and adults.

    Stick to your defined strategy, no matter how mad you are at a given moment. When you are angry, it is biologically impossible to think clearly, and it can take up to an hour for your hormones to return to normal. That's why you should decide these things when you're calm.
     No matter how intelligent your child is, remember that you are dealing with a child. Don't get into psychoanalysis; don't invite a child into an adult-level review of the problem. Tell the child the rules and consequences for breaking them, and apply it consistently. This will make the world seem to be a fair, safe, and predictable place.

Forget People Who Don't Want to Be Friends with You

Friendship can be a tenuous thing. One day, you're like family, and the next, the person won't even acknowledge you. Well, you don't deserve to be treated like that. Here's what to do.

Analyze what happened to lead to this. What did you do? If the answer is "I have no clue!" then that's okay too. However, if it is something you can sincerely apologize for, then do it. If it's not (because you didn't do anything), go to next step .
Get rid of them if they have no legitimate reason to ignore you. Let go of those good memories and send them into space. "Thinking about the good times you had" and about "What went wrong?" won't help you feel any better. It'll just make you hurt more, and you don't want that.
Know that there are good people out there. If you're currently in high school, then you don't have to worry about anything. If you don't have friends there, you will make them later on in life. For instance, college -- this is where people usually meet their true friends anyway.
Remember that everything happens for a reason. This person/these people/this team that you are no longer friends with aren't good for you, and there's a reason why you aren't their friend anymore. Good riddance!

* Be happy, because life's too short.
