Is it better or what?
Fender has made electric guitars since the 1950s. In the late 70s there were many inexpensive guitars being produced in Japan and exported to the US. Some were even very good copies of the Fender Strat. To compete against the less expensive guitars, Fender launched it Squier line of guitars in 1982. They were made in Japan by some of the plants that had been making the best Strat copies already. Now they were made to Fenders specifications and had the Fender Squier Series logo. These were intended to compete in the beginner and casual player market.
So at present, the low end Squier models are as good as any guitars in their price range. They are good guitars for beginners. The higher end Squier models are very good guitars for the casual players. So far it is the best fender squier. no doubt about it.
The common opinion is that Red Bull is bad for you, but is this true? Is it the caffeine? Is it the taurine? What is taurine? If it is bad for you, why is it even available?
Red Bull is sold in 100 countries worldwide, but only France and Denmark have banned the drink. Britain’s Committee on Toxicity investigated Red Bull in 2001 and found that it was safe, but warned pregnant women against it because high caffeine intake has been linked to a risk of miscarriage.
A study by the French Scientific Committee on Human Nutrition found that Red Bull contained excessive caffeine. The committee also raised concerns about the drink’s other ingredients – taurine, an amino acid the company claims can ‘kick-start’ the metabolism – and glucuronolactone, a carbohydrate. The EC’s Scientific Committee on Food said more studies were needed to assess the dangers of taurine and glucuronolactone.
High levels of caffeine can be dangerous for people with high blood pressure or anxiety disorders. Not much is known about taurine and glucuronolactone, but high levels of them could affect the body
Taurine (from taurus = ox, as it was discovered in ox bile) is an acidic chemical substance found in bile – Manufacturers claim that taurine enhances the effects of caffeine, but to date there have been no studies performed to confirm this.
Glucuronolactone is a naturally occurring chemical compound produced by the metabolization of glucose in the human liver. It has received some notoriety due to rumors that it was a Vietnam War-era drug manufactured by the American government. The rumors go on to say that it was banned due to several brain tumor deaths at the time. These rumors are not based on documented facts. Some of its positive benefits have been known to include acting as an antidepressant, stimulant, and helping in memory retention and concentration.

I am no handy man when it comes to repairing stuff but trying to , sometimes you gotta do what man can do especially if they’re not home. This is what i know,

Oh yeah you read it right.. Singing bowl. What exactly it is? well i never own one but i always wanted to have an Antique Singing Bowls. I know they are used during meditation and chanting etc, but why? What is their purpose and what do they aim to do?
Well on my understanding, The repetetive notes from the bowls can help relaxation, increased eurphoria and helps to induce a trance like state of mind. Similiar to the monotonous beating of drums that some religions use to induce this state of mind also when you rub the edges of it with the special handle, it vibrates and makes a noise. You are supposed to put it on a part of your body, like your head for instance, and make it vibrate. It is supposed to relax your muscles and help with meditation. Oh, and when you put water in it and vibrate it, the water bubbles. Pretty Cool huh? I want to own one.
TAKE A LOOK! How someone found this record-setting python in South Florida. This is actually a pet.. This is why it should be illegal to own these things outside of a licensed exhibit of some sort. Private ownership should be outlawed.

That is a lot.. AS in A LOT!! Birth Control does have side effects, it won’t make you gain weight in the sense that it packs on pounds. It makes you hold more water weight so you might want to take a water pill you can purchase at a local market. It will definitely help your cramps during your period, you will hardly feel them anymore.
The other yasmin injuries it you might have brown discharge during your period because you aren’t bleeding as much. It is worth taking the pills. I was on yaz for 2 months the first month i got my period as normal, although after my second month, i didn’t get my period, although during this whole month i never had unprotected sex, i doubt that i could be prego, because after looking at some of the different forums many women have had the same experience! although it is still worrying.
Im inlove with these shorts… too bad i feel im too old to wear those kind.. I’ll just let my daughter wear it. If you linve here in Jacksonville, Florida, You can get this at Platos Closet.
I dont like People Smoking inside my house or even in my car ,especially when kids inhale it, Its bad.
When you smoke in the house the whole family inhale that smoke. It smells on the carpet, the couch, everywhere is covered with nicotine. I remember when i used to go to my mom’s house who happens to smoke a lot, she always smoke outside whenever were there because of the kids. I told her to Quit.!! It gives you bad breath,yellow teeth,darker gums and Lung Cancer.
So this Mother’s day, I gave her a el cigaret , so she can still smoke even at the mall or even inside her house without the health issue. El Cigaret has no tar, carbon monoxide and does not produce any second hand smoke. While providing nicotine, it only produces a transparent vapor with no odor.
This helps eliminate your nicotine habit without violating any local smoking bans so you can smoke everywhere with this. Electric cigarette a completely non flammable product that uses state of the art micro electronic technology to provide users with a real smocking experience without the tobacco and tar found in real cigarettes. Not only are they brilliant to replace smoking in public places, but could very easily replace all cigarettes that someone smoked, a much healthier option as the electronic version does not cause any medical harm to the user or third parties. This is Probably the greatest invention of the new millenium.
What Koreans think about Filipinos?
PLEASE TAKE TIME TO READ THIS
MY SHORT ESSAY ABOUT THE PHILIPPINES by Jaeyoun Kim
Filipinos always complain about the corruption in the Philippines . Do you really think the corruption is the problem of the Philippines ? I do not think so. I strongly believe that the problem is the lack of love for the Philippines.
Let me first talk about my country, Korea . It might help you understand my point. After the Korean War, South Korea was one of the poorest countries in the world. Koreans had to start from scratch because entire country was destroyed after the Korean War, and we had no natural resources.
Koreans used to talk about the Philippines , for Filipinos were very rich in Asia . We envy Filipinos. Koreans really wanted to be well off like Filipinos. Many Koreans died of famine. My father & brother also died because of famine. Korean government was very corrupt and is still very corrupt beyond your imagination, but Korea was able to develop dramatically because Koreans really did their best for the common good with their heart burning with patriotism…
Koreans did not work just for themselves but also for their neighborhood and country. Education inspired young men with the spirit of patriotism.
40 years ago, President Park took over the government to reform Korea . He tried to borrow money from other countries, but it was not possible to get a loan and attract a foreign investment because the economic situation of South Korea was so bad. Korea had only three factories. So, President Park sent many mine workers and nurses to Germany so that they could send money to Korea to build a factory. They had to go through horrible experience.
In 1964, President Park visited Germany to borrow money. Hundred of Koreans in Germany came to the airport to welcome him and cried there as they saw the President Park . They asked to him, “President, when can we be well off?” That was the only question everyone asked to him. President Park cried with them and promised them that Korea would be well off if everyone works hard for Korea , and the President of Germany got the strong impression on them and lent money to Korea . So, President Park was able to build many factories in Korea . He always asked Koreans to love their country from their heart.
Many Korean scientists and engineers in the USA came back to Korea to help developing country because they wanted their country to be well off. Though they received very small salary, they did their best for Korea . They always hoped that their children would live in well off country.
My parents always brought me to the places where poor and physically handicapped people live. They wanted me to understand their life and help them. I also worked for Catholic Church when I was in the army. The only thing I learned from Catholic Church was that we have to love our neighborhood. And, I have loved my neighborhood.
Have you cried for the Philippines ? I have cried for my country several times. I also cried for the Philippines because of so many poor people.. I have been to the New Bilibid prison. What made me sad in the prison were the prisoners who do not have any love for their country. They go to mass and work for Church. They pray everyday. However, they do not love the Philippines . I talked to two prisoners at the maximum-security compound, and both of them said that they would leave the Philippines right after they are released from the prison. They said that they would start a new life in other countries and never come back to the Philippines.
Many Koreans have a great love for Korea so that we were able to share our wealth with our neighborhood. The owners of factory and company were distributed their profit to their employees fairly so that employees could buy what they needed and saved money for the future and their children.
When I was in Korea , I had a very strong faith and wanted to be a priest. However, when I came to the Philippines , I completely lost my faith. I was very confused when I saw many unbelievable situations in the Philippines. Street kids always make me sad, and I see them everyday. The Philippines is the only Catholic country in Asia , but there are too many poor people here. People go to church every Sunday to pray, but nothing has been changed.
My parents came to the Philippines last week and saw this situation. They told me that Korea was much poorer than the present Philippines when they were young. They are so sorry that there are so many beggars and street kids. When we went to Pasangjan, I forced my parents to take a boat because it would fun.. However, they were not happy after taking a boat. They said that they would not take the boat again because they were sympathized the boatmen, for the boatmen were very poor and had a small frame.. Most of people just took a boat and enjoyed it. But, my parents did not enjoy it because of love for them.
My mother who has been working for Catholic Church since I was very young told me that if we just go to mass without changing ourselves, we are not Catholic indeed. Faith should come with action. She added that I have to love Filipinos and do good things for them because all of us are same and have received a great love from God. I want Filipinos to love their neighborhood and country as much as they love God so that the Philippines will be well off.. I am sure that love is the keyword, which Filipinos should remember. We cannot change the sinful structure at once. It should start from person. Love must start in everybody, in a small scale and have to grow. A lot of things happen if we open up to love.
Let’s put away our prejudices and look at our worries with our new eyes. I discover that every person is worthy to be loved. Trust in love, because it makes changes possible. Love changes you and me. It changes people, contexts and relationships. It changes the world. Please love your neighborhood and country. Jesus Christ said that whatever we do to others we do to Him. In the Philippines , there is God for people who are abused and abandoned. There is God who is crying for love. If you have a child, teach them how to love the Philippines . Teach them why they have to love their neighborhood and country. You already know that God also will be very happy if you love others.
That’s all I really want to ask you Filipinos.
I sincerely hope that this essay inspire us all and show LOVE for our homeland.
