What Is BaZi?

The Chinese have always been fascinated by the metaphysical subject of Destiny. It is this profound curiosity about man’s path in life, the journey of a person, and the question of who we are, why are we here, and what are we supposed to do during our time on this planet, during our brief existence, that led the Chinese to study and seek methods for analyzing a person’s Destiny. These later evolved to become two systems of Chinese Astrology, known as BaZi (Eight Characters, also known as Four Pillars) and Zi Wei Dou Shu (Purple Star Astrology)

What fascinated the  bazinga  Chinese centuries ago remains one of the endearing and continuing quests of mankind, even to this date: to understand ourselves better, to better ourselves, and to appreciate what makes each unique and individual person, tick. And along the way, maybe figure out why is it that we’ve been put on this planet! Go to a bookstore and you will see a proliferation of books (and these days, tests), all attempting to explain to us, through scientific, psychological, biological, genetic or in some cases, just downright humorous ways, the question of WHO we are. And weighing down the shelves at another section called ‘Self Help’, volumes and tomes attempting to tell people how to improve themselves, beyond what and who they are.

These questions and many more, in fact, can be found through understanding a person’s Destiny Code, or his BaZi.

So what is BaZi?

BaZi is a system of Destiny Analysis, using a person’s birth data, namely, his date and time of birth. By calculating and determining the elements prevailing at the time of a person’s birth, an Eight Character BaZi chart is then derived. This BaZi chart is a sort of Cosmic DNA if you like. A BaZi chart is each and every person’s individual and personal Destiny Code. Within those Eight Characters, contains a comprehensive, arguably complete, collection of information about an individual and his life potential and capacity.

It may sound quite incredible but this is the genius of the Chinese Astrology system. A person’s entire life – pitfalls, trials, tribulations, wealth, status, personality, characteristics, talents, abilities – are all encoded within these eight characters.

The BaZi consultant, who understands what the various codes within the BaZi chart mean, is then able to ascertain what kind of potential or capacity a person has in their life and also, ascertain the person’s luck cycle, meaning, which years he is likely to experience good luck, and which years luck is likely to be less than favourable. In short, by decoding a person’s Destiny Code, a BaZi consultant is able to reveal what is in store for that person in their life, just as medical scientists can ascertain a person’s eye colour, if theirs will be brown and medical illnesses, by analyzing their DNA.

BaZi and Feng Shui: Diagnosis and Prescription

At a professional practice level, BaZi and Feng Shui are essential complimentary disciplines. Just like all doctors have to understand the biology of the body and the chemistry of drugs, all professional Classical Feng Shui consultants will have BaZi or Purple Star Astrology, another Destiny Analysis system, as a complimentary or back-up skill, to be used in tandem with Feng Shui. Some consultants will also use Face Reading or Mian Xiang as a third complimentary discipline and back-up system.

Many people do not realise that it is extremely important that before a person’s house or office is Feng Shui-ed, his BaZi must be taken into consideration. Why is that? Well, before a doctor can write a prescription, he first needs to know what is wrong with the patient right? Before a Feng Shui practitioner deploys his Feng Shui skills, he must first know, what is the problem that he is trying to fix.

Of course, most of you will remember that a few weeks ago, I wrote about how Feng Shui is a goal-orientated science. The client of course, must know what he wish to achieve in using Feng Shui. Sometimes, clients will tell me that they have a certain problem (for example, business relationships are problematic, or they are finding it tough going making headway at work, or the most common problem – not making enough money!). But most of the time, clients are not certain as to what their problem is, or only have a vague idea of what the problem is. Hence, the Feng Shui consultant must check their Destiny Code, before proceeding with the Feng Shui.

Sometimes, the clients know what they want (like that Abba song, Money Money Money) but even in these instances, the Feng Shui consultant must still check the BaZi. Why? This is because Feng Shui is not some kind of cosmic steroids.

If you want to turn into Arnold overnight, steroids might help you. But even then, you have to have the body and physical make up that enables you to get those kinds of muscles. Similarly, if you want to turn into Warren Buffett overnight, Feng Shui can only help you, if you have the Destiny to be a multi-billionaire in the first place. In other words, you must first have, before you can be!

In my Feng Shui classes, I always tell students: to perm hair, you must first have hair. This is in reference to tapping of Qi in the environment. If the environment has no Qi or no good Qi in the first place, no matter how you try to tap into it, no matter what formulas you use, you won’t get superior results. The ‘to perm hair, first you must have hair’ principle also applies to using Feng Shui to enhance Wealth or any other enhancement sought through Feng Shui. If in your BaZi, you are not destined to be a multi-millionaire, or your BaZi does not reveal that potential during certain periods of time, then no amount of Feng Shui enhancement, no super-powerful formula, can make you one.

You must first have, before you can be.

What’s the point in knowing if it’s all bad news?

Some people are against the idea of knowing their destiny and take the view that life should be experienced as is. More often than not, people are against knowing their destiny because they believe that it will be self-fulfilling prophecy and limit them. I have also met people who take the view that they would simply rather not know anything about the future, because they are fearful of knowing what it holds.

It is not all bad news. In life, there is only one certainty, and that is death. So too in BaZi and Feng Shui, there is no such thing as totally bad or totally good. There is no end destination, there are only journeys. Some days the sea is calm, some days it is rough – so in knowing how the winds blow, you can steer your boat the right way.

Similarly, I disagree with the argument that BaZi creates self-fulfilling prophesies, limits people or somehow encourages people to kill their dreams. In the old days, BaZi was used mainly to determine a person’s fate. In other words, the focus was on the hand you would be dealt and just knowing what kind of ‘life’ you would have. Of course, as a society and civilization, we have come a long way from that mentality and also, BaZi consultants approach this discipline in a very different way.

Today, BaZi is not about knowing the hand that you are dealt, although that is part of the goal, but in then playing that hand, as best you can, to the best of the abilities you have. It is about understanding what you can and cannot do, at certain points in time, and taking the right action to improve your life. It is about understanding yourself, and those around you, and then bettering your personal relationships, your opportunities and your life.

BaZi tells you about what your potential in life is so that you can chose to do the right thing and not be disappointed and waste time doing something you have little chance of succeeding in. It tells you when disappointment strikes, when you should throw in the towel WISELY, and when you should continue to fight the good fight. It does not destroy a person’s dream – it tells them, which dreams to chase because that is the one that can become a reality.

Choose the Grill That’s Right for You

With so many grills on the market today, it can be a little confusing when you’re ready to buy one. We understand. That’s why we put together an easy-to-read guide for you can compare the the most popular grilling methods. In the end, it’s all about helping you find the grilling style that’s right for you.

What’s the best grill for you?

That depends on what’s most important to you.  kyseii   Generally, it should be a grill that satisfies your taste, lifestyle and falls within your budget. Whatever you decide, happy grilling!

Gas Grills

Pros: If convenience is a priority, then a gas grill may be your best choice. It’s the most common grill and offers multiple burners, warmers, side shelves and a number of accessories for specialty cooking like rotisserie attachments. Start up and shut down is quick and temperature control is easy with a low cost per use. Cleaning is fairly easy, although cast iron grates require a little more care. Gas grills are attractive and come in a variety of stainless steel designs. A good quality gas grill will cost $500-$1,500 and upwards of that for commercial outdoor versions.

Cons: As convenience goes up the flavor goes down. You will sacrifice some level of taste by using gas, because the grilled taste can only come from the vaporized drippings of the food. Space is another consideration if you have a small patio or deck. Also, you may unknowingly run out fuel in the middle of cooking if you don’t check your tank prior to cooking. All metal grills become very hot while grilling, so they pose a burn hazard. The real drawback to metal grills is that they radiate great amounts of heat, which pulls the moisture from food very efficiently. It’s likely that the driest chicken breast you ever ate came from a gas grill.

Briquette Charcoal Grills

Pros: These grills offer a good charcoal taste and are generally inexpensive compared to other grilling styles-as low as $20 with average pricing of $75-$150. Briquette charcoal is widely available and is offered in a variety of brands and features such as mesquite flavored and “ready-to-light” versions. They typically have a large grilling area for direct and indirect grilling and you can even use them as a smoker on a limited basis by controlling the air vents. They are also a good choice if you have limited space.

Cons: Briquette charcoal grills typically take 20-30 minutes or more for start up. There is no thermometer on basic models so these grills take quite a bit of guesswork when it comes to temperature. Once again, all metal grills pose a burn hazard, and they radiate great amounts of heat which pulls the moisture from food very efficiently.

Kamado Charcoal Grills

Pros: If you are a serious outdoor cooker and put a priority on taste, then a Kamado-style grill is likely your best choice. These grills use a combination of ceramic shell, natural lump charcoal and air flow to offer a superior charcoal taste and the ability to cook food at high temperatures and have it retain its moistness. You can cook as low as 225°F or well over 750°F, so you can use it as an oven, a grill or a smoker. They have a small footprint and costs range from $850-$1,000. A wide range of accessories are available. Kamado grills are ready to use in 15 minutes.

Cons: Kamado grills have an initial learning curve when it comes to adjusting the airflow to achieve the desired temperature. The weight of these grills averages around 150lbs, so you may need help placing it in the cart or moving it up stairs to a raised deck or balcony. Kamado grills are ceramic and while not fragile, they are susceptible to chipping or breaking if dropped or hit with significant force.

Comparison by Category

TASTE

Gas grills: Gas grills allow for some level of grilled taste by allowing dripping to vaporize on hot lava rocks and burner covers. A smoker box with wood chips can add a modest level of smokiness.

Charcoal Grills: Adds charcoal smoked flavor to grilled food; even more if used in a smoker. Briquettes contain additives like borax, starch and sawdust from waste lumber. “Ready to Light” briquettes can leave an after taste to food.

Kamado Grills: True charcoal flavor. Natural lump charcoal is made from charred hardwoods like oak, hickory and maple. Excellent for grilling and especially for smoking meats.

EASE OF USE

Gas grills: Very convenient for start up and shut down after cooking. Great for “last minute” grilling.

Charcoal Grills: Less convenient than gas and requires a little guesswork to achieve the desired temperature.

Kamado Grills: Less convenient than gas and the desired temperature is achieved adjusting the air flow. Easy-to-read thermometer.

START UP TIME

Gas grills: Lights immediately and ready in 10-15 minutes.

Charcoal Grills: The longest start up time at 20-30 minutes.

Kamado Grills: Ready to cook in 15 minutes.

TEMPERATURE RANGE

Gas grills: Low temperatures can be easily achieved. Entry level units average 500°F for the highest temperature, while more expensive models are required to go above 600°F to properly sear meats. Low temperatures can be achieved.

Charcoal Grills: Depending on the amount of briquette charcoal, you can achieve temperatures near 700°F. Average high temperatures hover around 500°F for most models.

Kamado Grills: Consistent temperatures as low as 225°F and as high as 750°F+ can be achieved easily. Low temperatures can be retained for 12 hours or longer for smoking.

HEAT SOURCE

Gas grills: LP Gas, Natural Gas

Charcoal Grills: Briquette Charcoal

Kamado Grills: Natural Lump Charcoal

FUEL COST

Gas grills: Depending on current LP gas prices you can expect it to cost about $1.00 an hour to operate. Natural gas cost is lower, but a new regulator will need to be installed as well as a main line connection.

Charcoal Grills: Using a volume of six quarts of briquettes, you can expect a cost on average of $3.00-$3.50 per cooking depending on the brand. Kamado Grills: Using a volume of six quarts of natural lump charcoal for one cooking, on average you can expect a cost of about $1.50-$1.75 depending on the brand.

ASSEMBLY

Gas grills: Gas grills can be complicated to assemble; especially the high-end models. You should expect a 2-3 hour assembly time.

Charcoal Grills: Charcoal grills are pretty straightforward when it comes to assembly. Depending on the model you can expect a 15-30 minute assembly time.

Kamado Grills: Kamado grills come fully or partially assembled. Typically, it’s a matter of inserting the internal parts and placing it in the cart. Average time is 15-30 minutes.

MAINTENANCE

Gas grills: Gas grills carry the most maintenance and monitoring time. You’ll need to refill the tank, check the lines, venturi tubes and replace the grates as needed.

Charcoal Grills: Charcoal grills are typically a very simple design, so there is not a lot to maintain other than replacing the cooking grate if it begins to chip or rust.

Kamado Grills: Annually check the tightness of the band screws that hold the base and lid and connect to the hinge. Replace felt gaskets as needed; generally every 2-3 years.

CLEANING

Gas grills: Regularly clean the burners, igniter collector box, and drip trays. Clean the cooking grate before grilling by turning the grill to high for 10-15 minutes, then brush the grates. Cast iron grates require regular oiling. and ceramic coated grated should not be scraped to prevent flaking of the coating.

Charcoal Grills: Briquette charcoal produces a lot of ash residue. If you grill often, consider a model with an ash catcher can. Brush or scrape the cooking grate before cooking and occasionally clean the outside.

Kamado Grills: Kamado grills produce one-third the ash of briquettes, however an ash tool is usually provided that can be used to remove it. Brush or scrape the cooking grate before cooking.

SPACE

Gas grills: Typically needs the most space, and should only be considered for good-sized patios and decks.

Charcoal Grills: A small area is needed and they are a good choice for limited outdoor space like an apartment balcony. Check your rental agreement for restrictions.

Kamado Grills: Kamado grills work well in a limited outdoor space. They can also be inserted in a grill table for an additional working surface and storage.

PRICE RANGE

Gas grills: Entry level gas grills can be as low as $100, expect to pay $500-$1,500 for a durable grill with with decent features. Commercial grade outdoor grills can cost in the thousands.

Charcoal Grills: You can get a tailgate style grill for as low as $20. Standard models will run around $75-$150 and up to $500 for deluxe models.

Kamado Grills: Standard size Kamado grills range in price from $850-$1,000. If you add a grill table plan to spend $250-$750 more.

PURCHASING CONSIDERATIONS

Gas grills: If you prefer added flavor you should consider a model with a smoker box. Consider how much working space you need on the grill itself and if you will regularly need side burners to keep food warm. Determine how much you plan to cook and the maximum amount of food you will grill at any one time. This help you determing the cooking area needed.

Charcoal Grills: The model and features you need depends on how much you grill. If you’re an infrequent griller look for a basic model with enough capacity for your needs. If you grill often an ash can catcher will be invaluable. The more expensive models allow you to adjust the cooking grate for flexible cooking and some offer fireboxes for indirect cooking and a propane gas feature for starting.

Kamado Grills: All Kamado grills are not the same. Some use inferior ceramics and cheap hardware. Choose a manufacturer with a full line of accessories for the types of cooking you plan to do. Heat deflectors are a good choice for indirect cooking whether your grilling, baking or smoking. If you’re looking for working space and/or storage space, consider a grill table.

Mouth Washes: Bad Breath Solutions?

The moment I could smell an unpleasant scent coming from my mouth, I would grab a bottle of Listerine or Astring-o-sol to get rid of my bad smell. This usually happens after eating one of my favorite foods: garlic bread. The best bad breath solutions that come to my mind are mouthwashes. The stronger the better!

Besides mouthwashes, there are other various solutions for bad smell such as chewing on herbs and spices, brushing and flossing of your teeth, cleaning the tongue, chewing gum and many more. In other words, maintaining a good oral hygiene contributes to a sweet smelling breath.

However, the popular bad breath solutions which are often misconstrued to be ineffective solutions are mouthwashes. Recent studies show that mouthwashes temporarily mask bad breath for about 10 minutes after brushing.

This is true to mouthwashes containing alcohol.  astrazion  More often, these types of mouthwashes can worsen bad smell condition since it has the tendency to dry the mouth which can be the best breeding ground for oral bacteria.

However, there are new products of mouthwashes that contain certain ingredients that are powerful enough to kill odor-causing bacteria.

There are four types of mouthwashes that effectively cure bad smell. Together with a good oral hygiene practice like regular tooth brushing and flossing, these can be your best solution to bad smell.

Mouthwashes containing chlorine dioxide or sodium chlorite can treat bad. The oxidizing agent and the ability to neutralize volatile sulfur compounds reduce the growth of bacteria in the mouth resulting to a pleasant smelling breath.

Look for mouthwashes with zinc ingredient. Research suggested that mouthwash products with zinc ions reduce the concentration of volatile sulfur compounds in the mouth which causes bad smell.

Popular mouthwashes like Listerine are considered antiseptic mouthwashes. Its effectiveness is related to its ability to kill anaerobic oral bacteria that produce volatile sulfur compounds. Some experts, however, tend to disagree on antiseptic mouthwashes as the best solution for treating bad breath. It is because antiseptic mouthwashes may contain alcohol which causes the mouth to dry.

The last types of mouthwashes you should look for should contain cetlyperadium chloride. This component in mouthwashes has antibacterial properties which help control the growth of anaerobic bacteria in the mouth.

Mouthwashes should be spitted out after gargling. Do not give children mouthwashes for they have the tendency to swallow them. Using the right kind of mouthwashes can be very effective bad breath solutions.

Looking for french love phrases and unique ideas for expressing romance?

I love you in french (je t’aime) are words you are probably already familiar with. So what other french love phrases could you use (that are a bit more original?)

For something short and sweet, you could try:

 

  • amour de ma vie (love of my life)
  • je t’aime de tout mon coeur (I love you with all my heart); or
  • a toi, pour toujours (yours forever).

 

Mon cher (referring to guy), ma chère (referring to girl) means my dear; there are some very cute ones too, like ma cocotte (which literally means my hen, but roughly translated is darling, honey, or babe .

Other charming ways to speak to your sweetie is by calling them mon chou (my pastry) or ma puce (my flea).

But maybe you’re looking for something that goes much deeper than this (after all…love can be complicated!) French love quotes and french love poems are great sources of inspiration.

You could take french love quotes from famous writers, movies or songs, for example.

Take this one by french romantic novelist George Sand:

Il n’y a qu’un bonheur dans la vie, c’est d’aimer et d’être aimé.

There is only one happiness in life, to love and be loved.

Or try quoting from Edith Piaf, popular in the 1940s and 1950s for her love songs, such as “La Vie en Rose” (Life through rose coloured glasses:)

Some of the earliest of all known art (pre-historic cave and rock art) features wildlife. However, it might be more properly regarded as art about food, rather than art about wildlife as such.

Then for a lot of the rest of the history of art in the western world, art depicting wildlife was mostly absent, due to the fact that art during this period was mostly dominated by narrow perspectives on reality, such as religions. It is only more recently, as society, and the art it produces, frees itself from such narrow world-views, that wildlife art flourishes.

Wildlife is also a difficult subject for the artist, as it is difficult to find and even more difficult to find keeping still in a pose, long enough to even sketch, let alone paint. Recent advances such as photography have made this far easier, as well as being artforms in their own right. Wildlife art is thus now far easier to accomplish both accurately and aesthetically.

In art from outside the western world, wild animals and birds have been portrayed much more frequently throughout history.

Art about wild animals began as a depiction of vital food-sources, in pre-history. At the beginnings of history the western world seems to have shut itself off from the natural world for long periods, and this is reflected in the lack of wildlife art throughout most of art history. More recently, societies, and the art it produces, have become much more broad-minded. Wildlife has become something to marvel at as new areas of the world were explored for the first time, something to hunt for pleasure, to admire aesthetically, and to conserve. These interests are reflected in the wildlife art produced.

How Can a Small Business Use Google Internet Stats to Learn About Their Customers?

Google quietly rolled out Google Internet Stats in September 2009. The service was initially launched with a UK-focus, and because of this, it never really caught on in the United States and other nations. It is being speculated that Google might be expanding the service outside of the UK and if it catches on, it could become a valuable tool for small businesses.

What is Google Internet Stats?

Google Internet Stats is a microsite that acts a central resource for facts and insights published on the web. The data is pulled from a number of third-party sources and even accepted from individual users. All information is verified by Google’s market research team, which speaks to the integrity and reliability of the data. The current categories range from Technology and Entertainment to Media cscdigitalsevasolutions Consumption and Consumer Trends. Each category contains a number of subcategories and topics that provide the user with relevant statistical data. Google Internet Stats is a rich source of data, and can help small businesses find interesting information about consumers

Uncovering Shopping Habits

A small business can learn more about their customers online shopping habits by making use of Google Internet Stats. Lets say you are a business owner with products or services to sell online. If so, you can pull up the “E-commerce” subcategory under “Consumer Trends” to view statistics that could potentially be useful for your marketing efforts. For example, you can learn things such as online spending has increased despite the recession, how much consumers are spending online, consumers prefer shopping on the internet because of a greater variety, and various other details. While the information is not as targeted as a small business owner may like, it is relevant and that makes it very useful.

Potential for Personalization

A small business could potentially leverage Google Internet Stats in a number of ways, including using it to deliver personalized messages and recommendations. The service provides a wide range of data on consumers, and that information could prove to be quite valuable. It provides several categories that are relevant to most businesses, and because Google ensures that all the statistics are provided by credible sources, you can rest assured that the statistics are reliable and of the highest quality. The information is updated on a regular basis, which gives small businesses the opportunity to access the most recent facts, and stay on top of pertinent market data as it changes in relevance and importance.

If the expansion of Google Internet Stats leads to widespread usage, it could become a very popular tool among small businesses. The information it provides can be extremely powerful, especially when combined with your existing data. Many businesses use surveys and other methods to collect additional information from consumers. If that information is already accessible through a reliable source, you can adjust your strategy to go beyond market data and get feedback that allows you to better optimize the customer experience. With a few improvements, a tool like Google Internet Stats could be that source.

Sometimes, truth is a lot stranger than fiction. Do you remember where you were at 10 AM on October 3, 1995? I remember riding around with a co-worker awaiting the verdict of what was hailed as the “trial of the century”-the O.J. Simpson double-homicide murder trial. Had one been orbiting the planet when OJ was declared “not guilty,” I am quite sure he would have seen the earth tremble a bit.

In spite of what seemed like obvious motive and plenty of culpable evidence – ultimately, OJ was acquitted of any criminality in the death of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and Ron Goldman, an aspiring model who happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time. [As an aside, justice caught up to OJ Simpson in December 2008 when he was sentenced to 33 years in prison for armed robbery when he attempted to “reclaim” sports memorabilia at gunpoint.]

Jeff Ashton, who served as lead prosecutor against another famous murder suspect-Casey Anthony-has written a no-holds-barred account of the trial that shocked Florida in Imperfect Justice. In 2008, Casey Anthony was charged with the murder of her two-year-old daughter, Caylee. Although she had reported Caylee missing, Casey’s lies and malfeasance depicted her as a mother who had grown tired of the responsibilities of raising a child. Instead, it appeared as if Casey Anthony wanted to be the consummate party girl…even emblazoning a tattoo on her back indicating “Bella Vita” (meaning “Beautiful Life”) that she got weeks after Caylee died.

Ashton shares the prosecution’s case in what should have been a slam-dunk conviction against Casey. In just under 24 hours of deliberation, however, the jury acquitted Casey of any criminal involvement in her daughter’s death. The shock and outrage felt by the public was the fodder of all the news agencies covering the case. As Casey Anthony was whisked away under cover of darkness to a new life, there seemed to be very little justice for Caylee. Maybe the earth trembled once again as the verdict was announced in July 2011.
