Mesothelioma – History, Hazards and Dietary Advice History of asbestos. There are four main types of asbestos; Amosite (brown fibers), Anthophyllite (gray fibers), white Christie, and blue Crocidolite.

They can adhere to skin or clothing and are easily swallowed or inhaled. Half a century ago, asbestos was hailed by many as a miracle product. They said nearly anything could be made from this mineral. It as used as an additive to reinforce mortar and plastics. Asbestos...

The mansions still remain and many can be visited and toured throughout most of the year. A trip around Newport conveys a city with a distinct nautical past, and which for many...

Or perhaps you’re newly single and suddenly striking out on your own for the first time in years. For example, you lose your electricity, and suddenly, it hits you that you should have purchased a reliable flashlight. Take some time to assemble a home “first aid kit,” for lack of a better term. This kit will be your compilation of necessities. The average first-time homeowner/renter never considers their importance until...

Gold and Silver Maple Leafs Get New Packaging

Gold and Silver Maple Leafs Get New Packaging

Gold and Silver Maple Leafs Get New Packaging Gold Maple Leafs and Silver Maple Leafs are receiving packaging makeovers, changes clearly mandated by investor disfavor with packaging that the Royal Canadian Mint has used since the coins were introduced. Gold Maple Leafs debuted in 1979, Silver Maple Leafs in 1988.

Since inception, 1-oz Gold Maple Leafs have been packaged ten to a tube. Because Maple Leafs are 24-karat, pure gold, they...

Valuation of Business Personal Property (BPP)

Valuation of Business Personal Property (BPP)

Valuation of Business Personal Property (BPP) The huge range of assessed value for business personal property (BPP) makes obtaining substantial property tax reductions highly probable. It is not unusual for the range of assessed value for BPP accounts for similar properties to vary by 5,000%! For example, furniture and computers for companies within the same office building sometimes vary from $1 to $50 per square foot. Market value and unequal appraisal are two options for appealing BPP assessments. Given the inequity in BPP assessments and the subjectivity of valuing BPP, property owners have a high probability of success when properly...

The Value of Concrete Countertops – Customization Increases Aesthetic Appeal and Real Estate Investment for Homeowners From top-dollar homes in the San Francisco Bay Area to sprawling mountain homes in the Colorado Rockies, discriminating homeowners are demanding custom designs and finishes in their kitchens. In particular, they are looking to express their individuality and distinct design preferences with the fast-growing design material of choice — concrete. In fact, concrete countertops have become somewhat of a status symbol for kitchens, rivaling granite and other high-end countertop surface options. Consumer Reports Magazine (August 2004) ranked concrete highest for its “customization” and “exclusivity”...

Spain’s capital Madrid

Spain’s capital Madrid

Spain’s capital Madrid Madrid is relatively young when compared to the other great Spanish cities such as Seville and Valencia and so it lacks the traditions of the ancient Andalusian and Castilian towns. It lies on a vast open plateau and is subject to extremes of temperature, the daily variation is sometimes 22°C. The locals sum up their climate as nine months of winter and another 3 months of hell. It is the nation’s chief transportation and administrative centre. Its commercial and industrial life developed very rapidly after the 1890s and today it is nation’s chief transportation and administrative centre,...

10 Ways To Save Time And Money With Packing And Shipping On Ebay One problem with eBay is that unless you are careful you can end up spending far too much time on routine tasks such as packing and shipping.

Kensington Palace and the Glorious Revolution

Kensington Palace and the Glorious Revolution At some time, no doubt, upon our travels together, we will pass by this royal palace, where once upon a time a prince and princess used to live in happier days – namely the current heir to the throne and the now deceased Lady Diana, who became the Princess of Wales. So you may ask, what on earth could be the direct connection between this Royal Palace and a revolution that was known as “Glorious”? Why glorious anyway, you may well ask? Well, there we are – the story gets longer and longer, and...

China’s Energy Plan to Reduce Its Dependence upon Coal According to a U.S. Congressional – Executive Commission on China, which held a series of Issues Roundtables in late 2004, it was estimated that 12 Chinese mine workers die for every million tons of coal produced. Most are killed by methane gas explosions while inside the coal mines. China Business Weekly reported in July 2000, “To prevent gas explosions, China emits 6 billion cubic meters of methane from mines annually, seriously polluting the environment…” Last year, instruments on the world’s largest environment-monitoring satellite, the European Space Agency’s Envisat, revealed the world’s...

Bosnia – An Economy in search of a State

Bosnia – An Economy in search of a State

Bosnia – An Economy in search of a State Bosnia-Herzegovina (heretofore “Bosnia”) is an artificial polity with four, tangentially interacting, economies. Serbs, Croats and their nominal allies, the Bosniaks each maintain their own economy. The bloated, fractured, turf conscious, inefficient, and often corrupt presence of the international community, in the form of the Office of the High Representative, among others, constitutes the fourth – and most dominant – parallel economy. The divergence of the economies of these components of Bosnia is so high that the inflation differential between them amounts to 13%. The Bosniak-Croat Federation experienced deflation in 1999 –...

Visiting 3 Beauties from the 1930s Being the architecture buff that I am, I have really been looking forward to checking out Toronto’s free architecture festival: Doors Open. A few years ago I went to Chicago with a few friends for a May long weekend, right at the time when Chicago’s architecture festival was on, and I am really happy that Toronto now has an architecture festival of its own. The architectural period I am most fascinated with is the Jazz Age and the early part of the Great Depression, the era of the Roaring Twenties and the much less...

Investing In China: Sample Local Investment Incentiives (Henan Province And Zhengzhou Municipality)

Investing In China: Sample Local Investment Incentiives (Henan Province And Zhengzhou Municipality) Additional incentives offered by local and provincial governments significantly increase the foreign investor’s incentive package. They tend to become more generous as one moves westward from the coastal provinces to the heavily populated interior, this allowing the foreign investor to cash in on China’s fierce domestic competition for foreign investment. There are national regulations, however, that are applicable to the tax incentives that a local government is entitled to offer Foreign Invested Enterprises (FIEs), and if these limits are exceeded by overenthusiastic local governments they can be revoked...

Does a Faulty Barometer Herald a Storm for Stocks? Should you fire your financial advisor and hire a month in order to optimize your asset allocation? Probably so, if you believe proponents of a time-honored indicator of future stock market performance known as “The January Barometer.” The Barometer simply states that “As goes January, so goes the year,” and it’s racked up a seemingly remarkable forecasting record since well before Yale Hirsch of Stock Trader’s Almanac first popularized it as early as 1972. Since 1938, the direction of change of the benchmark S&P in the first month out of the...

Rediscover Tea – A Personal Story I grew up in a tea farm about 20 miles from Taimu Mountain in eastern Fujian province of China. Fujian is one of the major tea growing regions in China. The famous Oolong tea Iron Goddess (aka Tie Kuan Yin) is from southern Fujian. Taimu Mountain is the origin of the exotic White tea.

The farm is very large with two separate locations on two different...

More Return On Equity For Your Investment Property Dollar

More Return On Equity For Your Investment Property Dollar Few would deny that real estate is a solid investment. It provides an attractive combination of stability, reliable cash flow, preservation of principal and capital appreciation. However, many investment property owners nearing retirement find themselves in a quandary. They are equity rich, but cash poor, with increases in the value of their property far outpacing income growth. They also are often tied down by the day-to-day issues of property management and, particularly in cities like San Francisco, California, shackled to the constraints of rent (and eviction) control. In fact, San Francisco...

Aviation Insurance – More Than Sky- High For The Fly Boys “Those magnificent men in their flying machines…” Ever since the Wright brothers pioneered our ascent into the skies we have strived to fly higher, faster, further with aeronautical advancements surpassing one another at an ever-increasing rate. Taking to the skies is, of course, much more than the romantic notions upheld in quaint versions of “Up, up and Away” or “Come fly me, let’s fly, let’s fly away…” It is, for most aircraft owners, a significant part of their livelihood and not to be contemplated without the proper insurance.

Why Men Should Wear Skirts

Why Men Should Wear Skirts

Why Men Should Wear Skirts Until now, men have considered the idea of wearing something other than pants or long shorts in public to be nothing less than a sacrilege against humanity. Although, throughout history, the concept of men wearing skirted garments was all too common. After all, pants were not widely used by any society more than three hundred years ago. – Pants were originally an invention to make it easier to ride a horse. The idea stuck, and the two-legged garment became standard apparel for working men to stave off cold and abrasion. At the onset of the...

Assault on the American Homeowner

Assault on the American Homeowner

Assault on the American Homeowner Sixty-nine percent of Americans are homeowners, and they are under siege. A number of “unfriendly” policies, proposals and court decisions within the past year have produced an atmosphere which is arguably antithetical to the American dream of carving out a slice of the apple pie and plopping a single family residence on it. The assault weapons have catchy titles, such as inclusionary zoning, smart growth, density bonus incentives, eminent domain and mortgage interest tax reform. It could be said that corporations and developers attack from one side while politicians and government officials, acting in the...

Buying Medical Supplies Online Is About More Than Saving Money There are some people who tend to be more athletic and self-dependent than others, so when they sprain their ankle, twist their wrist or are looking for support for their knees, they often choose not to see a doctor. Instead they find what they need, to treat their injury or to help prevent an even worse injury, from a home medical supply store. Similarly, there are people who, after seeing a doctor, are told that they need particular medical supplies. Rather than getting the back supports, compression stockings, orthopedic knee...

I was on my bank’s Internet site, wildly trying to ascertain whether an important money wire had been deposited into my account. It hadn’t. I thought perhaps it could be somewhere in the system, so I wanted a warm body to either calm my fears, or establish what my priority was going to be on that day. One of my biggest frustrations with websites is trying to find contact information when I need it, and of course, even for those sites that have it, there...

This can be illustrated by referring to the biggest purchase we all make in our lifetime – Real Estate.

What I mean is the seller doesn’t become your first mortgage holder, the bank lends the money...

Something everyone should “use” if they ever wanted to be included in the “winners” side at the end of the game. Regretfully, the game is over already for many smokers that had to suffer the most common consequence of smoking, i.e., an early death. The...

The book of Romans contains a wealth of wisdom for the Creation scientist and anyone else wanting to learn something about the natural world. Chapter 1 is a good starting place, as it explains how nature (Creation) so clearly reveals God that to deny His existence is insane. In chapter 8, we read that “creation groans.” The earth, and everything on it, is in a state of decay. Think about it. Everything gets older, and there...
