Adding Programming to My Mobile Plan

I have had AT&T for nearly a dozen years. I knew that they had recently merged with Directv, but I had never researched adding that service to my package. I had cable from a local company, and I was happy enough with them. However, once I received a letter stating they were raising my prices by nearly 20 dollars a month, I knew it was time to look for other options. I looked here and there on the internet because I wanted to find the best deal. That is what is so great about finding entertainment nowadays.

When I first moved here, cable was really my only option unless I wanted to go with a satellite company. I liked the offer given to me by the local company because they were on an aggressive campaign to win customers from the satellite TV companies. Nowadays though, it seems people are streaming programs more than watching them as they air. That is not good news for the cable companies, but it is great news for us consumers.… READ MORE ...

It is important to feed your pet the right pet food for a long and healthy life. Searching online and talking to veterinarians, will help you decide what is best for them. Ask questions and get answers for your pet, because they rely on you to feed them properly.

It’s very difficult to know what nutrients are right for your animal, as they all claim.

Most of the meat used in dog or cat food, is a by-product that is not considered a human class. There are some big supporters of raw food for domestic dogs and cats. This diet is similar to wild animals. Proponents feel that commercial pet food is a poor substitute for raw feed.

If you decide to feed raw food to your animals, make sure they receive the right nutrition. Animals have different nutritional needs than humans. And that may not be immediately apparent, if there are deficiencies. Many homemade foods, maybe unbalanced and incomplete for your pet.

Get Out of Your Career Rut

Are you not making changes in your job right now due to increasing uncertainty about work?

Do you want to do something different but don’t think you have the confidence to take the next step?

Get Out of Your Career Rut

Do you want to take your business to the next level but don’t feel very brave?

Many people think that because the UK is officially still in a recession, it is not the time to take risks or move out of their comfort zone. The media is constantly reminding us that the economy is struggling, there is increasing joblessness, and financial woes.

I am not disputing that it feels like there are challenging times ahead. But I also believe that the way we approach life impacts on the way we project ourselves in both our day to day lives and career.

Let me be blunt, for many people the threat of the recession on jobs is a good excuse for not doing anything about being fed up at work. It is easy to stay with your existing employer, stay in a job you don’t like, or put up excuses like those I have mentioned above. You may think that more companies are making redundancies, fewer organisations are recruiting and more people are applying for the small number of jobs that are being advertised, or it is easier to keep your head down with your current employer to avoid facing redundancy.

In the current economy, it doesn’t stop the brave from making big choices, taking changes, setting up new businesses or facing new employment, it just takes courage, bravery and confidence to take the next step.

How would it be if you could be successful, step out of your comfort zone and live the life you desire?

How would you feel if you could face the next year with the mindset that you know you will be successful?

To kick start your next steps in 2010, here are my top tips.

1. If there are less people applying for jobs that are being advertised, why don’t you become one of them? If you can show how you stand out from the crowd, you will be in great demand for the role.

2. If you want to change your career, take some time to understand your transferrable skills and strengths. Then research the opportunities available to you.

3. Improve your networks. Develop great contacts with people who can help you to source the job or career you desire, or put you in touch with influential people.

4. Find out what organisations are hiring staff at the moment and apply to them direct. If they are attempting to cut costs, you never know, you may be the right person at the right time.

5. Ensure that your CV is up to date as it is a great marketing tool that demonstrates why you are the best person for a job. When you are applying for jobs, make sure it reflects what is required within that role.
