Frequency of Bonuses at Online Casinos

Online casinos are offering many types and styles of bonuses to their players, in an effort to bring new players in and to retain the players that they already have. With a variety of bonuses, like Initial Deposit or Loyalty Bonuses, there is virtually something for everyone to enjoy when playing online casino games. There are some limitations, though, in how frequently you can benefit from some of these bonuses, so players today need to become savvy about casino bonuses and arm themselves with this information.

Some bonuses are considered to be “one time” bonuses, like the Initial Deposit or Sign-On Bonus that some casinos offer. These are offered on an ongoing basis, but are only available for a specific group (such as new depositing players) for a specific period of time (like, when they make their first deposit). Once this window of opportunity closes, then this bonus will no longer be available, so you will need to get all of your facts straight in order to make an informed decision.

Other bonuses are offered periodically but have specific guidelines to follow and limitations about how frequently they can be used. For example, Europa Casino has a Loyalty Program that provides a bonus each month for each player on the first deposit that they make during that calendar month. This is great for existing players; however, it is limited to one per month and only applies to the first deposit.

Achieving “Swift” Vision for Your Business or Organization

At first glance you may have read the headline of this article and immediately interpreted “swift” as fast, quick, hurried, rapid, etc. But, the “Swift” I am referring to is Jonathan Swift. And one of my favorite quotes related to strategic thinking and planning is from Jonathan Swift, who said, “Vision is the art of seeing things invisible.” And that very succinctly describes what I do everyday on personal and business levels and what I guide and facilitate others to do also.

The strategic plan model I use includes a vision statement, a mission statement, a list of core values or guiding principles and short and long term goals. And the entire model begins with “vision.” And let’s face it, the vision is invisible at first. Over my career, it has been very important for me to develop the art of seeing things invisible. This has been true in the visioning of buildings from an owner’s description in words to the visioning of a dream of what a person’s business could be.

I strongly believe it is essential to have a visionary, guide and facilitator to achieve the “Swift” vision for your business or organization. Too many times business owners, entrepreneurs and management are so preoccupied with immediate issues that they lose sight of their ultimate objectives. Businesses and non-profit organizations need a clear vision so that everyone in their organizations knows where they are heading by sharing the vision with all employees and stakeholders.

Without clear vision, there is blindness (or at least very blurred vision) of mission, purpose and goals. Included in this newsletter is an article by Larry Galler. Larry uses the term “Vision Challenged Disorder” or “VCD” in the article entitled, “Vision Getting Dim?”

It seems there is someone else that knows the importance of clear vision.

Does your business or organization have a “Swift Vision” now? Do all your employees know what the vision is? Or if you do have a vision, is it getting dim? Don’t let your business or organization fail because of the lack of a clear vision.

Maruti Suzuki Swift Vs Ford Figo Road Test

Back in 2005 small cars were treated as cheap vehicles with bare basic features. They were used to reach from point A to point B. In May, 2005 Maruti Suzuki launched the Swift Petrol. It was the most expensive hatchback in the market but it had features which premium cars carried as standard. The Swift was an instant success and many car makers have followed to Maruti to dethrone the Swift. However the car which really has the ability to do so is the new Ford Figo.

Ford became ambitious and announced the Figo in October, 2009. Everyone looked at it and said nothing until the American automaker announced the price. Since the day of launch, the Figo has been selling in hot numbers and there is a serious capacity crunch at the automakers Chennai facility. So how does the Figo compare to the Swift?

The Swift has started to age and that won’t change a buyers decision towards the Figo because the Ford is also based on an old car, the Fusion. However when it comes to interiors, the Ford has an edge with excellent built quality and features. The Figo also features various safety equipment such as Anti-lock brakes, air bags, rear defogger, rear wiper and panic brake light as standard, something which is optional in the Diesel variant of the Suzuki. Panic brake light is a feature by which the hazard lights get activated on panic braking over the speed of 96 kilo meters per hour.

Both the cars cost roughly the same but Suzuki is the more fun to drive. The K12M motor is quick and reaches 100 in 13 seconds. The Duratech on the other hand takes all of 17 seconds to reach 100 kmph. The DDiS motor takes 13 seconds to reach 100 kmph, whereas the Duratorq motor takes 15 seconds, which is quite respectable for a car of this size. The Ford is the more practical of the two with the engines working fantastically without any sort of turbo lag in the city. Mileage figures are quite similar too.

Considering all parameters, the Figo edges over the Swift slightly for the sheer value for money if offers. With the new Suzuki model set to launch in June this year, can the lead be maintained? We don’t know, but we are in for an interesting small car hatchback comparison when the new model goes for sale.

Once In A Blue Moon

Today, 31st May, 2007, presents us with a relatively rare celestial event, commonly referred to as a Blue Moon. We all use the term in every day language, but did you ever stop to wonder where the phrase came from? It’s roots may be traced back quite a way. In actual fact there are references to blue moons in Ancient Egyptian texts and hieroglyphs! More than likely back then the phenomena may have been a direct observation from some environmental event, which may make the moon appear blue on some occasions, just as it is possible now. As the Egyptian Religious beliefs were steeped in celestial observations and phenomena, it may be that a blue moon was seen as some kind of rare religious omen and revered as a sign from the Gods.

These days the use of the term, “Once In a Blue Moon”, is a very common phrase in our language. In the English language the first known literary reference to a blue moon was in a poem by Roy and Barlow, written in 1528, entitled “Rede Me and Be Not Wrothe”. An excerpt, “If they say the moon is belewe, we must believe it to be true.” which is a reference to the English nobility. Commonly in this day and age and over the years a blue moon is used as a symbol of melancholy, sadness or loneliness in songs and poetry. We are literally accustomed to the idea of the moon or Lunar, as being a symbol of Romance or Love. Therefore a blue moon reflecting the idea of sadness or feeling ‘blue’. The moon seems to be intrinsically connected to our emotions and for many of us, as is the case with your’s truly if you have any faith in Astrology, Cancerians are ruled by the moon and their moods can be affected by the various phases of the moon. It was a little ironic to learn after having dragged oneself around shroud in melancholy this week, that there was in fact, a Blue Moon on the horizon. Coincidence?

There is also a famous farmer’s manual called the Maine Farmers Almanac, which was used to record the weather and moon phases. The first full moon of the month was recorded in red on the due date and the second full moon of the month, recorded in blue. This could be the first modern day origin of the term. When there are two full moons within a calendar month, in modern times the second full moon of the month is referred to by meteorologists and astronomers as a blue moon. This only occurs once every 33 months. Not that rare really. The last one was in July 2004 and the next after today’s will not grace us with its presence until December 2009. Hence the term, “Once In a Blue Moon”.

Of course the moon does not magically turn blue in color. But there are some meteorological phenomena or environmental causes that may make the moon appear blue. These include such things as volcanic ash from any large eruption, fine grains of sand or ice crystals suspended in the atmosphere or even from the smoke of large bush fires. Also, if you have been snug in your cottage under an oil lamp and go outside to look at the moon, it will appear blue. This is because our optical organs are governed by an automatic response to ‘white balances’ much like that of a digital camera, and it will take a moment for your eyes to adjust from being in ‘yellow’ light.

Our Ongoing Love Affair With the Moon

“How vast and ancient
this dragon must be, that it
takes a month to blink!”
-Nicholas KAA Walker

It’s good to keep track and to know what phase of the moon we are in. Our behaviors and emotional responses directly correlate to the Moon’s lunation phases. When we coordinate our activities with the lunar energies we can really maximize their influence. And we can use all the help we can get, right? Plant seeds, ideas, visions at the New Moon. Weed, cull, and remove the unnecessary at the Full Moon.

Songs, poems, odes, reveries. The Moon has been the subject of endless adoration since the beginning of time. Mysterious and changeable, sometimes occulted by clouds or (gasp!) the Earth itself, our satellite, our iridescent child, the Moon floats suspended in the sky, enticing us to dream, to wonder, to reflect. To garden in the moonlight, to walk in the woods with the moon shining through foliage or bare branches, whenever we have the chance to have her silvery light embrace us we know we are being touched by the hand of the divine feminine and we are blessed.

The Moon changes signs (constellations) about every 2 and half days. The Moon is moody; she rules the sign of Cancer. If you know anyone who has a strong Cancerian influence in their chart (Sun or Moon in Cancer, a Cancer ascendant, or lots of planets, especially the Sun, in the 4th house) you can expect that person to be moody! As the Moon moves into a sign the emotional timbre of that sign is amplified. A Full Moon always brings more emergency room activity but a full Moon in Scorpio will make that activity all the more intense!

When you know the sign that the Moon sits in your own birth chart you will be able to understand your own moods and how you are affected by the moon’s movement through the skies.

Binaural Beats For the Shamanic Journey

In early October 2008 I began having a recurring dream. In the dream I could hear an audible tone like the one I often hear when helping spirits are trying to communicate with me. That tone is usually a high pitched ringing in one ear or the other. I have learned to just stop what I am doing and tune into the sound. I still my mind, go within, and open myself up like a hollow bone. I may not always understand what the message is, if any.

The tone in my dream was different than a typical ringing in the ear. It was a lower tone. I also heard a voice telling me that this tone was very important. I had similar versions of this dream several times over. The message was the same each time; it was important for me to remember and use this fundamental tone in the cycle unfolding at this time on Earth. It was necessary for healing the heart.

In recent months, the U.S. economy has suffered the equivalent of a heart attack. Researchers say the decline of Wall Street and the mortgage crisis may take a heavy toll on your heart, especially if you are already at risk for cardiac problems. People are losing their jobs and homes. Companies are going bankrupt. We have collectively experienced fear and anxiety over the course of the past few weeks. What is needed now is a healing and balancing of the collective heart.

As a drummer I work a lot with opening up the heart in people. Drumming activates the heart chakra. It is very healing and transforming. There is often emotional release and a great sense of joy and bliss. I wondered if working with tones would affect the same healing.

Tone Healing

I began researching tone healing and found the pioneering work of Swiss mathematician Hans Cousto. In 1978 Hans Cousto discovered the law of the octave as the link between different kinds of periodically occurring natural phenomena such as the orbit of the planets and musical tones. The octave is a natural measure of the harmony of universal law and is the common denominator of astronomy, mathematics, music, and color.

Through the systematic application of the law of the octave it is possible to convert the whole solar system into sound. Hans Cousto established that the rotation of the earth around the sun has a base frequency of 136.10 Hz or C#. This astronomic actually causes the changing of the seasons. According to Cousto, this tone is the primal frequency of existence, or OM. Research indicates that it relieves stress, opens blocked energy pathways, restores inner peace and balance, and activates the heart chakra.

The Number 8 in Tamil Numerology

8 as a Psychic Number aligns with serious, heavy, achievement-driven personalities. You tend to be driven by doing (rather than allowing things to just happen), and sometimes you’re a good judge of character. Still, there are moments where you are a little slow to connect all the dots. You are business-minded and you enjoy the luxurious life, but be careful about being too materialistic. You are able to manage your wealth (when you want to) and fame when you put your mind to it. Get ready for a rollercoaster, because you may find you have many up’s and down’s when it comes to your finances.

Often, you are independent and stubborn. Others may see you as the outlaw or scapegoat if you regularly clash with authority. You may find you are often frustrated by limitations (both your own and that of others.) Your confident aire may be intimidating to others. Daredevil, arrogant, serious, a loner, and reliable may also be terms that describe you. You are brave and can keep a cool head during times of emergency (you may breakdown after the threat has passed, however.) 8’s prefer to work alone, and doing so, they accomplish much.

As a Destiny Number in Indian numerology, 8’s struggle with disagreements, stalled opportunities and rejection. 8’s have wonderful endurance and ambition, which can get out of control if they continue to burn their candles at both ends. They tend to be success-minded, desiring fame and material luxury. In Tamil Numerology, a person with 8 for a destiny number wants to deliver something major in life and manifest a legacy. If you are an 8 here, you tend to isolate yourself others. On your darker side, you may get entangled with the law and substance abuse, and be prone to addictions and depression and extreme “states of consciousness”. Be careful with all that power. A reckless 8 may age prematurely, have suicidal tendencies, easily feel unwanted or unloved, or neglected or rejected. You must learn to harness your considerable power for the good of all in order for you to be satisfied.

Everyone will have their very own belief in regards to what exactly is a perfect shot, however here’s a summary account of what you’re really searching for. The perfect espresso is generally reasonably sweet, have a noticeably powerful aroma, and a taste similar to freshly ground coffee beans. The actual espresso beans you choose clearly have an effect on flavour, scent, body, PH levels and surface texture.
