Advantages of Craigslist

There are plenty of place online where businessmen can display their ads, but the problem is, it is not easy to reach audiences. Finding the right platform to post ads is difficult and it is costly to rely on banner advertising. That’s why many businessmen turn to Craigslist and consider classified posting. Craigslist is the local online platform that businessmen rely on and it is popular for a good reason. It is popular simply because it works. Moreover, it offers plenty of advantages.

First and foremost, Craigslist has a huge local reach. This platform will allow businesses to reach to a broader base of audience just by using a single ad. Lots of people visit Craigslist and if your ad is not there, then you’re losing the opportunity to have each person look up your business. They might end up going to your competitor who decided to post an ad on Craigslist.

Craigslist is free! Thus, business owners can easily post ads and promote their products and services. However, this offer comes with a caveat and that businesses can only post 1 ad every w days and must be posted on proper categories. Failing to follow these rules will risk losing their accounts or losing their ads.

Craigslist is an established ad platform for businesses. Craigslist is one of the most visited website in the country – ranking 7th to be precise. It has 60 million visitors each month, with 700 sites in 70 countries. It has 50 billion views each month and average users would view 20 pages during each visit.

Mechanic in Transformers

Just the other day, I decided to binge watch the Transformers film series (Transformers, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Transformers: Dark of the Moon and Transformers: Age of Extinction) and there’s one thing that I noticed, only Transformers: Age of Extinction had a clear image about the relationship between cars and mechanics.

In the first film it was Sam Witwicky, a student who got caught in the conflict between Autobots and Decepticons. There was not a single scene exactly related to robots and mechanics. You would only see scientists in Hoover Damn studying the so called “remains” of Megatron. On the second film, theirs is also no interaction between mechanics and alien robots; just a bunch of soldiers, scientists, politicians and a base that’s in a garage with no mechanic in the vicinity.

Even the same thing happened on the third installation – a garage-like base without a mechanic in the scene. Ok… perhaps there are mechanics somewhere but you don’t see them working or interacting with their alien allies/visitors.But everything is different on the fourth film. Finally, a mechanic! Cade Yeager, a responsible ad loving dad/mechanic/inventor who purchased a rusty semi-truck (prime) to sell its parts for his daughter’s tuition. He is the mechanic that ended up not only fixing Prime, but also befriended the Autobots and help saved the world.

Cade Yeager is the only mechanic that has a long interaction with alien robots on the silver screen. And it is also Care Yeager who said the most impressive lines in the Transformer film series. “What do you think being human means? That’s what we do. We make mistakes. Sometimes, out of those mistakes come the most amazing things… When I fixed you, it was for a reward. That was it. That was why. The money! And it was me making a mistake. Without it, you wouldn’t be here. So even if you got no faith in us, I’m asking you to do what I do. I’m asking you to look at all the junk and see the treasure. You gotta have faith, Prime, in who we can be.”

So why am I so obsessed with mechanics in Transformers film series? It is because I grew up watching Transformers cartoon series and the cartoon series has a human mechanic named Sparkplug and he has helped the Autobots plenty times. Moreover, like what most mobile mechanic Denver CO would do, he helps in fixing cars… or in this case… fixing robots that transform into cars.

Also another reason why I am obsessed with mechanics in Transformers film is the fact that mechanics are always necessary when we talk about cars. Even if it is living and “breathing” cars.

Why Fear your Move?

If you have hire moving company and moved before, then you are familiar with feeling of being afraid – afraid of the changes. You are afraid of the new things. Most of all, you are afraid that your normal life will no longer be normal.

In my opinion, this fear is normal. Human beings are known to be afraid of changes. Heck, change would freak us out! We fear the unknown, that’s why we have plenty of superstitious belief. In moving, there are plenty many unknown things we have to confront. Then we question ourselves.

What if my neighbors are not agreeable?

What if my new neighborhood is horrible?

What if my life would change for worse after I move?

What if my old neighbors and friends forget me?

What if I can’t find good friends?

What if this. What if that. So many what ifs! If you think about all those “what ifs” you might lose your mind!

Moving brings change. Change brings adjustments. Adjustments bring stress. Whether it is negative or positive, you would never exactly know what you’re getting. This is what frightens us. This is what brings us stress. But we can cope up with these changes.

You can always reach out to a friend or a relative and discuss your situation. They can help you realize there’s nothing to be afraid of. You just have to make sure you will confide your anxieties and fears to a person you can trust. Look for someone that will actually listen to you.

When you move, you have to acknowledge the fact before you. Acknowledge the fact that you are leaving your past life behind. You have to acknowledge the fact that things are different now and you have to face it. Just keep in mind that once you have finally settled in, the feeling of anxiety and fear will lessen as time passes by.

Divert your attention to other things instead of wallowing in anxiety and fear. You can’t control the future, so why dwell on the unknown things when you can be productive instead. Why don’t you start a new hobby or find an activity that will help you forget. With this you will not only enjoy yourself but also gradually forget those nasty feelings.

You should also understand that things are not perfect. After moving you will come across a lot of nasty surprises and problems. You might feel discouraged and disappointed but you should remind yourself that this is a new challenge for you. Challenges are like hammer and you are a sword being tempered to perfection.

Most of all, you should have self-confidence. You should enjoy this new experience instead of dreading it.

Things To Do When You Are Moving

Benefits of Hiring Movers When Relocating

If you are getting ready to move, then you should know that scheduling an appointment with movers Denver co and preparing your belongings aren’t the only things you need to consider when moving.

One good example is your pets or kids. When moving day comes, you can’t have them loitering around the work area. You need to keep them out of harm’s way and have someone to look at them.

Speaking of kids, when moving for long distances (city-to-city move or interstate move) you need to prepare your kids’ school record and other important documents. You then have to arrange your kid’s transfer to their new school.

Moving is not only stressful to humans but can be stressful to animals as well. So before you move, you need to bring your pet to the veterinarian for a full checkup. See to it that your pet is all healthy for you move.

Before you move, you have to contact your utility companies to disconnect their service on the day or the day after your move. Also, cancel all your monthly subscriptions like newspapers, magazine, delivery and others. If you don’t want to cancel, inform them about your new address so that they would forward your subscription to your new address. Before you move, go to your local post office to change your address. You should also ask your most trustworthy neighbor to forward you letters to your new place. If you are driving to your new address, make sure your car is in perfect condition. Have your car checked and serviced by a trustworthy auto-mechanic. On the day of your move, make sure car’s fuel tank is full to avoid delays during transit.

You also have to make sure your phone is operational and its battery is full. This way, when an emergency arises, you have a phone ready to call for help.

On the eve of your move, you have to sleep early so that you have the mental fortitude, strength and stamina for the next day. If you lack sleep, you would feel sluggish and tire easily on one of the busiest days of your life.

The most important thing to do when moving is to say your goodbyes to the friends and people you have met during your stay. Give your kids the time to give their proper farewells to friends and classmates. You should do the same thing as well. Even though you are moving away, the people you have met have become an important part of your and it is important that you acknowledge and say goodbye to them properly.

resize banner1

Whether it is a startup or an established company, SEO is important to achieve success. However, SEO is challenging. It is even more challenging to find a suitable SEO partner. It is either you find a good freelancer/SEO company that would help you or find a horrible one that will bring you to ruin.

Indeed, there’s a thin line between a good service and a bad one. Fortunately, there’s a bright spot for businessmen. Here are some tips in finding a good SEO service.

What do you need?

SEO is a vast ocean and you can find various SEO professionals that specialize in various fields of SEO. Moreover, these professionals also differ when it comes to techniques and SEO practices. So, in order to find a good SEO service, start by defining what you need. As long as you are aware of what you need, you would be able to find the local seo experts more appropriate for you.

Ask around

If you ask around, there’s a chance that one of your acquaintances or friends would know someone. They might be able to suggest an SEO agency, consultant or professional. Use social media like Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. Someone on your network might have a good lead you could use.

Do your homework

If you are looking for an SEO service, you should do your homework. Regardless of what professional or company you would find, it is important to know their background. Not every SEO practitioner out there would say who really they are. Who knows, the company you hire may only appear good on surface but beneath the surface, they are nothing but rubbish in terms of service and results. Always research a company or professional’s background – experience, qualifications and customer satisfaction – before making a decision.

Don’t be afraid take a test

If you think a company or professional is good enough, don’t be afraid to take them for a test. Give them a few months as a trial period. Doing this will allow to determine the level of service the company or professional would provide.

Large Rats Are Nothing Compared To Their Ancestors

Subject of many urban myths (or are they really myths at all?), black rats and brown rats, the members of Rattus genus are described as large and mangy rodents that could reach the size of a domestic cat or a small dog. These rats could have grown to such size because they are hardy. They feed off at any fat filled food or rubbish that is found on the streets or sewers. The leftover McDonald’s burger you threw last time would become nourishment to these hearty eaters.

But black rats and brown rats aren’t the only large rodents. Nutria, a South American rat, is a large rodent that can reach 7 lbs. Then, there’s the Laotian Flying Squirrels that can reach 42 inches. How about the capybara, another large rodent that can reach more than 1 meter in length? Fortunately, these rodents are way different from black rats and brown rats in terms of danger to humans. Furthermore, capybara is so cute! You can even have them as pets.

But when we talk about size, none can beat the size of prehistoric rodents. The Josephoartigasia, a prehistoric rodent that roamed the Ancient South America can grow up to 8 ft. long. The Ambyrhiza or Giant Hutia is another prehistoric rodent that lived 100,000 years ago. It is 1000 times larger than any modern rat and is twice the size of an average human. In other words, it is a genuine SUPER GIGANTIC RAT. If any of these rats were alive, many of us would surely faint on sight!

So, the next time you see another large black or brown rat, you should put on a brave front and try telling this to yourself – “You rats aren’t as large as your ancestors”. “You don’t scare me at all!” But if you are not actually afraid of rats, then you should be glad their humungous ancestors are long gone. You see, even with the best pest control company, they would be no match to those gigantic rodents.

But I do know how to make my 5 year old version become proud of me. I can show to him that I am living a satisfying life that is not full of hassles. I can show to him that my work is helping a lot of people… making others smile and at the same time making me smile with the money I earn.

My 5 year old self is smart. He can understand what my point is… although I remember myself being stubborn back then so I might have a hard time trying to explain things to him.

How Mice and Rats Enter Your Home

The key to permanent mouse and rat control is to know how they get inside your house. If you don’t know this, then your rodent problem will never go away. It’s important to fully inspect your home and find all the possible rodent entry points.

Rodents are usually nocturnal creature, which is why they are not likely to enter your house through open doors or windows when the sun is out. Although mice and rats are nocturnal, that doesn’t mean they are not active during the day. When under pressure to find shelter and food, they might venture out even if the sun is shining bright. This is why you need to keep your doors and windows shut.

You have to understand the fact that rodents can easily squeeze into small holes. As long as their head can fit inside the hole, they can easily squeeze their bodies to gain entry. They can gain entry from small nooks and crannies from your house; the walls and ceilings of your house and even the crawl spaces and the attic. Rodents can enter your home in many other ways like eave gaps, gable vents, ridge caps, pipes, holes for electrical wires, roof joints, AC chases, loose siding and many others.

Never forget the fact that rodents are skilled climbers. Mice and rats can easily scale walls and climb trees. They are excellent circus performers, walking along thin branches that overhang the roof. From the branch, these rodents would drop down to your roof and then find ways to enter your home.

Once you understand how these pests enter your home, it would be easier for you to prevent them from entering and eventually rid your home of these pesky critters. But if you really insist on having professional help, call termite and pest control Los Angeles.
