What is Spiritism, Spiritism or Psychic Mediumship?

There have been some interesting discussions all over the popular African Religion Forums regarding mediumship, spiritualism, and the differences between the methods used to communicate with the dead. Please see them below.

What is a spiritualist? I think for most this means a person who is a medium who can communicate with the dead and maybe see, feel and hear them. And he must know how to deal with different spirits as they come along.

What is dead? A muertero in terms of the terminology I use is the same as a spiritualist. They know how to communicate and work with the spirits of both good and evil. Spiritstas are in the same boat as the Muertero as far as I’m concerned. To me they are two different names for the same type of person. The lines are blurred depending on the beliefs or background in the areas and knowledge of spiritualism.

What are the differences between the two and their practices, if any? I recently heard the Boveda versus the Voveda… which is interesting. I communicate personally and work my dead in my Boveda. It is a place both for my eyes and for practice.

What exactly is “real” spiritualism, in your opinion? Real spiritualism in my eyes is ANY form of spiritualism. Be it Asian cross/influenced, African, Irish, and anything in between. It is communicating with spirits and learning to work with them in all aspects, if not some.

Real spiritualism is how you and your guides interact with each other. I believe that the faith you have in what you have is what will work for you. Real spiritualism is an open book depending on how you were taught to practice it. I don’t think it has a beginning or an end, it has the basic tools you need to get started, like sentences, vault, etc, but then from there it’s how and why your guides want you to do it.

My guides might tell me that I need a machete covered in 9-color tape above my door for my protection and to cut off negativity…but I can’t come to your house and tell you that the scissors you have above your door are wrong because that it is for your protection and as your guides told you they needed to protect the gate.

Vince Lombardi’s Nine Success Principles

Vince Lombardi’s nine principles of success:

“The measure of who we are is what we do with what we have.” vince lombardy

1. Commitment: “The quality of a person’s life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of activity.” Vincent Lombardy. Lombardi goes on to state, “A winner must be committed to discipline, committed to sacrifice and self-denial, and committed to hard work.”

How committed are you? If you are an athlete, are you the first in practice and the last to leave? If you are part of an organization, do you make sure that your efforts help the entire organization? Are you willing to get involved and help others even when “it’s not my job”. As an educator, do you take the time to visit with other teachers in your field, learning ways to make yourself more valuable in the classroom? Are you willing to wit? What it takes to be successful?

2. Truth: “In football and business, a leader must be honest with himself and with the people he works with. Fidelity and truth are the most sacred qualities and qualities of the human mind.” vince lombardy

Are you being honest with your biggest fan and strongest critic: yourself? Are you doing the things on a daily basis that will allow you to do more, be more, have more? Or are you being dishonest with yourself and with those who count on you on a daily basis? With today’s business ethics or lack of ethics, people are looking to be able to deal with reliable and trustworthy people and organizations.

3. Excellence: “If you demand perfection, you will rarely achieve it. The fear of making a mistake is the main cause of making one. Instead of striving for perfection, relax and seek excellence.” winter cocoon

Lombardi said, “Nobody’s perfect. But guys, if you don’t settle for anything less than the best, you’ll be amazed at what you can do with your life. You’ll be amazed at how high you can rise.” in this world.”

Perfection rarely happens…it’s the perfect game thrown by a baseball pitcher, but it requires the help and support of his teammates. It is a game of 300 bowling, rarely achieved by anyone but the best bowlers. It’s the hole-in-one in golf…a feat rarely achieved. However, the pursuit of excellence should be a goal that we all seek.

4. Results- “Winning isn’t everything, but striving to win is.” vince lombardy

Hall of Fame basketball player Bill Walton had this to say about winning: “Winning is about getting the whole team on the same page.”

In team sports, there is usually one team that wins and one that loses. The team that plays together can often overcome a lack of talent to succeed. A team with a lack of character can win games, but it will not be successful in the long run and success will be short-lived.

We always set goals for our teams, and winning was not an important goal. We felt that if we could hit most of the goals set for each opponent, victory would take care of itself. We wanted results. We wanted to improve each and every time out. What do you expect for you and your organization?

“There’s no limit when no one cares who gets the credit.” john wood

5. Passion: “I learned that if you want to do it bad enough, no matter how bad it is, you can do it.” gayle sayers

Are you passionate about what you do? Do you have the first in the office, the practice field, the classroom mentality, or do you drag when things start? Do you believe in what you are doing, in your teammates and/or coworkers, do you have it in your heart, mind, and soul, and are you willing to accept excuses from yourself and your teammates? Does that fire burn deep inside of you?

“There is only one way to be successful at anything, and that is to give it your all. I do it and I demand that my players do it.” vince lombardy

6. Habit: “The difference between a successful person and others is not lack of strength, or lack of knowledge, but lack of will.” vince lombardy

It has been said that doing the same thing today as yesterday and expecting different results is a definition of insanity. Habit is an act that we do repeatedly. It can be good or it can be bad. Psychologists estimate that 90% of the things we do are habitual. Think about it, starting with your morning routine and ending when you retire for the night. There are hundreds of things that you do the same way every day, often without thinking about them.

Robert Ringer, author of Million Dollar Habits states: “Success is a matter of understanding and religiously practicing specific simple habits that always lead to success.

7. Mental toughness: “If you’re lucky enough to find a guy with a lot of head and a lot of heart, he’ll never walk off the field second.” vince lombardy

You often hear coaches say to their players, “We have to be mentally strong.” What is mental toughness? It is one of those words that are difficult to explain. I think my definition of mental toughness is the proper mental and physical preparation that allows you to forget the price, the sacrifices you have to pay to be successful. It’s what allows us to get off the mat once again after being knocked down. It gives us the ability to work on breathing in the hurt and pain that we may be experiencing. It is what allows us to recover from the temporary failures that life sends us.

When I was practicing, we were down 92-75 with five minutes left in the game. I called a timeout and asked my players how much gas they had left in the tank. I knew the other team was tired. I needed to be told that they could reach inside, give it their all for the rest of the game. We start to push. Our mood is that we were not going to lose. The gap closed, slowly at first, and then, as if someone had opened the floodgates, we were magically back in the game. With :08 seconds left in the game, we hit a three to send it into overtime. Our opponent was exhausted… but mentally we were up for the challenge. We ended up winning the game 119-111 in overtime.

8. Discipline: “Some people see discipline as a chore. For me, it’s a kind of command that frees me to fly.” july andrew

Normally when we hear the word discipline we associate it with punishment. According to Webster’s New Collegiate Dictionary, discipline can be defined as: training or developing through instruction or exercise, especially in self-control; to bring a group under control. George Washington declared, “Discipline is the soul of an army. It makes small numbers formidable, gives success to the weak, and esteems all.”

For most of my coaching career, I didn’t set rules for my team. Our basic rule was to be where you’re supposed to be, do what you’re supposed to do, when you’re supposed to do it, and do it to the best of your ability. By following that simple set of rules, my players graduated, for the most part becoming the individuals I can be very proud of today.

9. Perseverance- “Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; genius without reward is almost a proverb. Education won’t do it; the world is full of educated bums. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.” calvin coolidge

Persistence and perseverance may be the most common quality of successful people. They refuse to lose, to give up. They know that the longer they hold out, the greater the chance of success. Thomas Edison could not have invented the light bulb more than 1,000 times. When asked by an insider how it felt to fail so many times, Edison replied that he didn’t fail, he figured out ways not to invent the light bulb.

H. Ross Perot, Texas billionaire and former presidential candidate, has this to say about perseverance: “Most people give up right when they’re about to achieve success. They give up at the one-yard line. They give up in the last minute of the game, a foot from a game-winning touchdown.”

There will be times when it will not be easy. People will doubt your ability, your effort, or your value to the organization. They may not believe in your dream or have the same passion as you. They may think it’s over their head or over the hill. What if Kurt Warner had believed all the things people said about him before the Arizona Cardinals headed to the Super Bowl?

I have been lucky enough to meet some people who have overcome tremendous obstacles to reach their goals. Kevin Saunders, bronze medal winner at the Paralympics (Barcelona, ​​Spain) wrote a book about his journey appropriately titled, “There’s Always a Way…Never Give Up!”

I leave you with this thought: “The power to endure in spite of everything, the power to resist, this is the quality of winners. Persistence is the ability to face defeat again and again without giving up, to keep going in the face of the great difficulty, knowing that victory will be yours. Persistence means pushing yourself to overcome every obstacle, and doing whatever it takes to reach your goal.” Then.

The ten steps of the bulldozer manufacturing process

In line with agricultural and industrial businesses, excavators are a prerequisite for faster and less complicated workloading. Throughout the high establishments found in busy cities and renowned commercial industry, behind them are the rough blocks and soil that were lined by bulldozers. Now let’s take a look at how this useful machine is made and how it undergoes complete machining, fabrication and sub-assembly with the help of a computer aided drafting program that assembles and integrates the different metals and parts to form the final product of an excavator.

First of all, the process of making an excavator goes through 10 steps that will be discussed in a simple way so that the public understands how this machine turns from raw materials into a noisy, gigantic and destructive or constructive engine. The complex system and intricate assemblies begin their manufacturing process on an assembly line. A schematic is prepared from printouts and engineering drawings taken from a computer-aided drafting (CAD) that will serve as a blueprint for the assembly of the parts. Components will be heat treated, annealed or painted beforehand in preparation for shipment to the main assembly line.

1. The main core, which forms the rigid inner body, is responsible for the following assembly. Cut and shape the steel plate to complement the structural shape. The main purpose behind this is to prevent high impact shock loads and twisting forces that will topple the bulldozer due to its enormous weight. In this process, the components undergo steel welding (regarding the structural skeleton); fabrication in which plates are mounted on fixtures and manually or robotically welded to the stationary central foundry; and the cross members are also welded to support the other component of the excavator. The frame is then rotary sanded on all veneered surfaces which, in turn, will be passed on to the cockpit and main assembly line.

2. On the assembly line, the diesel engine at the front and the transmission at the rear (the two are connected by a long shaft and supported by couplings and bearings) are assembled, so the power train is formed due to the long connected line of the two, with series of gears and differentials. This bolts directly to the base on the main assembly line.

3. Radiator and hydraulic lifting cylinders are located at the front of the excavator, apart from that, connections are made to join the engine water lines. Other additional assemblies such as hydraulic, lubrication, cooling and fuel systems are also built and therefore the assembly will be ready to be attached directly to the engine.

4. The cab, which in conjunction with electronic controls, is mounted on steel blocks or pads located on the dozer frame.

5. The undercarriage is mounted on the frame and assembled to the drive train.

6. Cab controls are linked to the engine and hydraulic systems.

7. The front blade is attached to hydraulic cylinders, which are attached at one end to the engine casting in front of the excavator.

8. Once the main component assembly is fitted, more hoses, electrical lines and fluid lines are connected to the tight fittings.

9. The excavator is then painted after the assembly of the necessary parts is completed.

10. Additional fluids will need to be put in and the excavator is now set up for the test station.

What’s the deal with breakfast?

You often hear people say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but what are the reasons behind that statement? Many people skip breakfast or substitute coffee simply because they don’t have time to eat properly due to the rush to get to work in the morning. So it’s important to get a real understanding of how skipping breakfast can affect your health but also your weight.

what do you mean? How can skipping breakfast affect my weight? I’m eating less food so I guess it will help me lose weight right? Not quite!

Skipping a major meal like breakfast, let alone any meal, will actually slow down your metabolism. When the body doesn’t get enough food, it goes into starvation mode, which slows metabolism and therefore lowers energy levels. The best way to maintain a healthy weight is to keep your food supply at a steady rate. Don’t eat a massive breakfast, but eat a meal that gives you enough energy to get through much of the morning. You may need to snack a little later in the morning to keep your metabolism running at a steady level until lunchtime. This is the smart way to control food intake.

If you don’t maintain a stable metabolism, by meal time you’ll be hungry and tend to overeat. When you have too much food at one time, your body can’t use it all and will convert the excess food to fat and store it in your hips, stomach, legs, or other area where you may or may not want fat. The key point here is that smaller meals eaten more frequently are a good tactic for weight control. It keeps your hunger in check and keeps your metabolism running at an optimal level.

You may think that sleeping is a lazy activity, but your body is working on repairing muscles and nerves and also working on detoxification and expelling waste from cells. That is why it is necessary to eat to replenish the energy that has been used during the night.

You can also lose a lot of water overnight, so it’s important to replenish those fluids with water (not coffee). Freshly squeezed orange juice is ideal, but drink it quickly to get the most out of the enzymes in that juice. Remember, the body is largely made up of water and needs at least 2 liters a day to function properly.

Breakfast is a start, but what do you have for breakfast? You can forget about 90% of the available breakfast cereals. These are highly processed foods full of sugar and refined carbohydrates that quickly convert to sugar in the bloodstream. These types of foods will gain weight and also give a quick dose of energy and then energy levels will plummet. Breakfast should contain complex carbohydrates, protein, and unsaturated fat. These will maintain a steady release of energy throughout the morning.

The Complexities of the Law Firm Peer Order

Working at a law firm is like no other business entity. Law firms are generally a conservative place to work. While many companies have embraced the idiosyncrasies of the younger generation, these firms frown on weird hair color, nose rings, and tattoos. Time has forgotten this world.

Law firms thrive on modern technology such as the Internet and social networking sites. They continue to remain in a world that embraces clean professionalism. However, in this professional world of law it is a well kept secret. For those who decide to enter this world as a paralegal, they quickly realize the strangeness of law firm politics and the secrecy of the pecking order.

Working in a law office is exciting and fast-paced. However, learning and understanding the pecking order is crucial. First, it is important to understand the order among the lawyers. Law office partners are no longer subject to these rules. However, new attorneys must understand the order of attorneys in the firm. Lawyers generally don’t care about the order of paralegals and secretaries.

However, for a paralegal to be successful, they must understand the pecking order of their counterparts and secretaries. The secretaries of a law firm strictly adhere to the rules of the order. A secretary who works for a partner is considered the boss when it comes to other secretaries. The top clerk has the privilege of controlling and dictating the working hours of the other clerk.

As a new paralegal at a law firm, you can expect to get all the work other paralegals would rather not do. As for the other paralegals, you are at the bottom of the pecking order and are subject to the most tedious tasks.

However, understanding the pecking order for secretaries can help you gain recognition for moving up the paralegal pecking order. Nothing offends the general secretary of the law firm more than another member of staff who violates the implied order. Once he understands who is at the top, he can begin to use the system to solidify his position in the law firm.

While it is important for a paralegal to perform their duties accurately and efficiently, it is also important for a paralegal to interact with co-workers. As a legal assistant, the goal is to earn the opportunity to work on the most interesting cases. Additionally, a paralegal may have the opportunity to accompany an attorney into the courtroom.

By developing a professional relationship with the legal partner’s secretary, a paralegal can quickly maneuver through the caseload to get the best assignments. Lawyers rely on their secretaries to help manage cases and, quite often, the lawyer’s personal life. Lawyers value the opinions of their secretaries and often request staff recommendations for important cases.

While the pecking order seems like an archaic tradition, understanding it is imperative if you want a successful career as a paralegal in a law firm. The key is to learn the order quickly and use it to your advantage.

Effective selection of ideas is essential for systematic innovation

“The key is to pick the things that you think are really important and then focus on them like a laser.” –Jeff Bezos, founder and president of Amazon.com

Of all the ways to discover new ideas, the Walt Disney Company during the Eisner years had one of the most unconventional methods. Modeled after a 1970s television show, Disney’s “Gong Show” was a huge hit with rank-and-file employees. Three times a year, Eisner and two of his top lieutenants would spend a day listening to anyone — secretaries, set designers, theme park employees — who wanted to pitch an idea. Up to 40 people were allowed to act, present, or imitate their idea until a loud gong signaled that time was up. Then, after all the ideas were aired, Eisner and his managers would discuss each one and make a decision.

A little unorthodox, yes, but it worked amazingly well. According to Peter Schneider, Disney’s president of features at the time, most of Disney’s animated films originated from these sessions, as did the idea of ​​Disney’s retail stores. Most organizations don’t invite ideas with such flair. They also don’t give instant feedback or make quick yes or no decisions. “In most companies there is no obvious strategy for selecting or even evaluating ideas,” concludes the American Management Association’s survey of 1,356 global managers. Nearly half (48%) of respondents reported that their companies “do not have a standard policy for evaluating ideas.” The next most common answer? Some 17% said they use an “independent review and evaluation process,” while 15% said “ideas were evaluated by the manager of the unit where the idea was proposed.”

An effective selection process connects your “idea funnel” with your “idea pipeline.” Without it, this victory is haphazard, hierarchical, and daunting for would-be innovators.

Advantages of a Robust Selection Process

Working with companies just beginning their innovation journey, I often hear managers say that they have “too many ideas, not too few.” How can you have too many good ideas, I’ll ask. Upon further discussion, what often becomes clear is that they have too many half-baked incremental ideas lying around that aren’t going anywhere quickly. “We never seem to kill an idea” is a comment I often hear. What this indicates is that there is no mechanism, no review board or committee, to filter, rank, reject, encourage, prioritize, and ultimately “green light” ideas. As Yogi Berra would say, “If you don’t know where you’re going, you’ll probably end up somewhere else.”

It takes 80 to 100 raw ideas to find one or two that are promising enough to pursue. So the task of the selection team is to identify one or two, but to do so without demoralizing those whose ideas are not accepted. The selection team serves not only as an evaluation body, but also as a teaching vehicle. At Disney, regular employees overcame shyness and fear of rejection to go to the boss and sell their ideas. Why? Because they knew they would get a fair, albeit brief, hearing and at least some honest feedback on why their idea didn’t get selected. When employees see that their ideas will receive a fair hearing, they begin to think of more. At Google, Marissa Mayer and a core team of managers meet several times a week to listen to an endless stream of pitches for new ideas. Googlers have up to five minutes to propose the next GMail, Froogle, Search or Google Earth. If they are shy, they can submit it through the company intranet idea management system. When it comes to selection, there is no one size fits all. Your method just needs to fit your culture and create transparency for potential intracoaches.

Establishing criteria is critical

Most companies never explain in detail the type of ideas they are looking for, so their criteria are not clear. Without criteria, all ideas have equal value, leading to bottlenecks and battles over resource scarcity and inertia. “People never give up their pet ideas at this company” is another comment I often hear.

Well-conceived criteria, on the other hand, can be used to get people to think big, to stretch them out. GE CEO Jeff Immelt requires each division to produce three Imagination Breakthroughs per year: breakthrough ideas that will create entirely new business models or product lines with $100 million in gross revenue within three years. Selection criteria are best when they are simple and memorable; they are most valuable when they are widely understood throughout the organization. At WL Gore & Associates, the criteria have been narrowed down to three words: Real, Win, Worth. Is the opportunity real? Can we win with it in the market? Is it worth following?

At Bank of America, selection teams in each business unit evaluate ideas using a highly publicized scorecard. Using a simple score from zero to five, ideas are evaluated on dimensions such as: ease of implementation, associated impact, customer satisfaction, and of course, revenue potential. At one technology company, the criteria were narrowed down to five questions:

1. Does this idea fit into our innovation strategy? 2. Does it create new value for our customers? 3. Is there demand for this innovation? 4. Will management support you? 5. Can the solution be graded?

Getting the right people on the recruiting team

Unfortunately, recruiting teams often end up being made up of people who have little or no contact with customers and market needs, and who have little understanding of innovation. Setting smart criteria is essential, but those who apply the criteria to real ideas must also realize the limits of the criteria, especially for radically innovative ideas. For example, if the criteria questions whether there is “demand for this new product/service”, it might be easy to say no. But groundbreaking innovations (the cell phone, the Post-it Note, the Internet) are always in demand. And customers don’t know what they want until they see it and use it. So while selection criteria are critical, so is having the right people on your selection/review team to make intuitive judgments.

The behavior of the selection team should not discourage the flow of new ideas, but rather should encourage greater participation. Team members must be perceived as unbiased, entrepreneurial (in touch with markets and customer needs), and adept at building ideas for themselves rather than simply judging. Selection meetings should be interactive sessions in which the focus is as much on the questions and unknowns as on the answers, both on the level of passion and commitment, and on the level of experience of the person suggesting the idea. At a large global bank I worked with earlier this decade, we established Magnet Teams in each country where the bank operated to curate ideas and monitor compliance and risk management issues. At one point, we started hearing complaints that these teams acted more like policemen than coaches who helped you follow the rules, but also wanted you to be successful.

Putting a selection process in place won’t guarantee you find innovative ideas, but it will reduce idea gridlock and allow you, as Jeff Bezos puts it, to “pick things that are really important and then focus on them like a laser.” It’s no wonder that brainstorming is fast becoming an established and essential best practice for companies looking to embed innovation into their business.

Quality is more important than quantity in exercise

How you do your repetitions in your exercise movement is much more important than how many repetitions you do. Your exercise should focus on quality, not quantity. Because it must be about quality, you will focus and perform each movement of the exercise with purpose and diligence. It is common practice to go by the number of repetitions. If you modify that practice and go with some other factor (like time), then you will focus on quality. For example, you could try doing 35 seconds of lunges instead of 10 to 12 reps of lunges. Later, after you’ve mastered your form, you can perform reps on lunges.

Also, you can overextend yourself in certain exercises. From my personal experience, I have tried to maximize pull-ups. I ended up hyperextending my shoulder joints. This affected my overall upper body routine. I should have initially focused on mastering my pull-ups. 2-3 reps of good form pull-ups are more beneficial (and safer) than 10-12 forced reps of awkward pull-ups. By keeping my abdominal muscles tight, keeping my shoulder joint tight and secure, and maintaining my proper form (perhaps trying them out using a chair or bench), this would have prevented injuries that could have a long-lasting effect on your exercise routine. As I discovered, your shoulders are a delicate and intricate joint. Requires you to have mobility movements (eg, shoulder rolls) and static stretches (eg, shoulder pulldowns or hanging from a pull-up bar) with strength exercises (eg, upright rows and pull-ups) ).

This is the lesson of quality, not quantity.

Another example of quality over quantity concerns running. I love running. It is one of the best exercises to speed up metabolism. Now, most people would assume that the longer you run, the better. They jogged, walked or ran for hours like a marathon runner. Instead, for your overall fitness, it’s better (and shorter) to do interval runs and sprints. This would be great for joints and general fitness. Both a marathon runner and sprinters are excellent athletes. But, I’d rather look like a sprinter than a marathon runner. It’s about quality over quantity.

One last example would be push-ups. I thought and assumed that the more push-ups, the better. Once you master the push-up move, you should do more complex and compound push-up moves. It is important to first master the push-up motion. You must keep your abdominal muscles contracted. You must be able to keep your body (for example, your back) straight during the movement. Later, you can do palm push-ups, plyometric push-ups, T-bends (or yoga), etc. to challenge and give more quality.

How to teach your puppy not to bite

As a dog trainer who helps people train their problem dog, one of the things I hear most often with puppies is how do we get them to stop biting. As cute as those puppies are, their teeth are like little razor blades and they hurt. I’m going to show you a way to eliminate the biting problem without any confrontation.

Before I tell you how to remove bites, I’ll tell you some ways that don’t work. I’m doing this so you don’t waste your time.

The first method that doesn’t work is reacting negatively when the puppy bites, in other words letting out a little howl when the puppy bites you.

The next is to praise your pup when you say no. You’ll be saying no forever before he stops biting.

The last one I am going to talk about today is giving him a toy when he bites you, that is, substituting the toy for your hand or your fingers. These methods sound good, but they are not effective.

Ok, now let’s cut to the chase and let me tell you the method that works. He wants to go to the local pet store and buy a small bottle of a product called Grannicks Bitter Apple. This stuff is fantastic. Now let me warn you that there are many other bitter apple products that do not work. So make sure you buy Grannicks, it’s available at all major pet stores.

Now how do we use it? Simple, let me tell you how. You are going to take the bottle with you, that’s why we bought the small one that is easy to carry in your pocket.

When your pup starts talking to you with his mouth, he will simply reach over and grab his bottle of bitter apple and spray it all over your hand. Your hand must be soaked. Then give the pup his hand back and look at his face, because he won’t like it.

Well, here’s another example. You’re having breakfast this morning and suddenly realize your puppies are chewing on your shoelaces, no problem. Go over and grab your bottle of bitter apple and sprinkle some on your shoelaces and give them back to the dog.

This method is so simple and effective that I have never seen a puppy pass up a bottle of Granniks Bitter Apple. In other words, before that bottle of bitter apple is gone, your dog will have stopped biting you, your shoes, and even your jeans. He just learns that these things don’t taste good.

This is a very simple way to teach your puppy not to bite without any confrontation, but before I finish I want to tell you one last thing. Bitter apple contains a lot of alcohol and evaporates very quickly. You may have sprayed your hand 30 minutes ago, but now it has evaporated and the puppy can bite it again. If he does, just spray again and note that when it evaporates it doesn’t have the same punch so just reapply.

Good luck and I hope you enjoy this simple trick to eliminate puppy bites.

Guide to Low Cost Auto Insurance Quotes: How to Find and Compare Different Policies Online

The best way to get affordable auto insurance is to first shop around for quotes, then take the time to compare them. Learn about the companies that offer quotes and decide which one offers everything you need at a price you can afford. Since there are many companies that claim to offer low-cost car insurance quotes, you’ll need to learn a little about each one before making a decision.

Don’t just look at big-name insurers, either. There are smaller local auto insurance companies that offer affordable quotes. And, because they are smaller, they can provide more personalized service to their customers.

Liability-only auto insurance will always be the cheapest option, as it is the absolute minimum coverage required in each state. However, it only covers things like property damage and medical bills from the other people involved in an accident for which you are responsible. What about your own medical bills? How do you get repairs for your own vehicle? These are comprehensive/collision insurance coverage options you’ll definitely want to consider.

Finding low-cost car insurance quotes isn’t just about finding the lowest monthly payment, and should only be considered if you have an older car that isn’t worth the money you pay to insure it. However, you’ll still want to factor in your medical costs. Another thing to think about is what would happen to your family’s finances if you were seriously injured in an accident and unable to work for an extended period of time? Some insurance quotes will include solutions for this as well.

Low cost car insurance quotes with good deductibles and premiums

As with any type of insurance, there is the debate of premiums VS deductibles. The deductible is the insurance company’s way of having the policyholder share some of the responsibility for an accident. The lower the deductible, the higher the premium, and vice versa. Decide what would be a better solution for your needs. If you’re not sure, ask your insurance agent or financial advisor for advice.

You can also do a little math on your own. If you opted for a higher deductible, how much could you save with a lower premium? Would the amount of money you save be equal to your deductible in case you have an incident and have to pay some of the repair costs out of pocket?

Regardless of what you decide, you may still be able to save a lot of money with discounts. Each company offers a variety of discounts, and there’s a chance you could qualify for at least one. One place you can go to find good deals and low-cost auto insurance quotes is esurance. You can start by working with a “Coverage Counselor” to find the best coverage. Also, check Esurance discounts – there are plenty and you just might qualify for one.
