Embroidered Baby Clothing

When a good friend has a baby most of us want to offer unique and memorable gifts that will stand out from the clutter of stuffed animals, diaper cakes and blankets. It’s not easy being original these days and often times the price of a unique gift can be way out of your price range. However, there is always a tried and true option for offering truly exceptional gifts and that is to personalize specific items with the baby’s name.

Many different baby gifts can be personalized but none look quite as catchy as embroidered clothing. You can personalize furniture, toys and photo albums but these are more keepsake items and not necessarily for everyday use. But with personalized t-shirts, sweaters, sweat suits and bath robes your baby boy or baby girl will have a special reminder of who they are no matter where they go.

Roll neck sweaters are gaining popularity with infants and toddlers and you can find boy and girl sweaters in terrific colors including classic navy blue and pink. Made from 100% luxuriously soft cotton roll neck sweaters are super comfortable and keep babies warm when the air gets nippy. Best of all roll neck sweaters can be embroidered in a number of ways including monogrammed block, script or funky style lettering to match your little one’s unique personality.

Great for everyday apparel t-shirts never go out of style and you can find comfortable and durable t-shirts made from high quality material blends including cotton, polyester and spandex that make for great baby gifts. Double layer t-shirts can be found in baby boy blue and baby girl pink for classic baby apparel and can be personalized with a baby’s full name, initials or single letter.

If you really want to make an impression on that newborn baby boy or baby girl then consider a fresh looking personalized velour sweat suit that will keep them current with today’s trendy fashions. You can find high quality baby track suits that feature pink, blue or white piping, matching gusset and interior hood lining for added comfort.

Infant velour sweat suits are ideally sized for infants and toddlers between 6-12 months and the cuffs are snug so the sleeves stay baggy to keep up with the latest styles. Keep it simple and plain with a single embroidered letter that looks cool and gives your toddler a sense of his own identity.



Naughty Text Sex – 5 Text Messages That Will Get Your Woman In The Mood And Ready For Sex

Imagine the following scenario:

You come home from a hard day at work and as soon as you open the front door – your woman leaps into your arms, with a HUGE SMILE ON HER FACE.

Her smile then turns to a cheeky grin and she KISSES YOU PASSIONATELY and takes your hand and leads you to the bedroom.

An hour later you both collapse in a sweaty heap, having had AMAZING SEX.

Sounds great, doesn’t it?

Sadly, the reality for most couples is that they get home from work and collapse on the sofa. Then they watch television, have dinner, shower and go to bed.

Without sex.

What happened? Where did the passion go?

I’ll tell you where – most couples let work and other stresses in life get in the way.

Here is how you can keep the passion with your woman:

5 Text Messages That Will Get Your Woman In The Mood And Ready For Sex

Use these text messages whilst you are at work to keep your woman thinking about you…

1. “I’m thinking about you”

This is a simple, slightly mysterious text message to send to your woman.

She will most probably respond with something like:

“Oh really? What are you thinking?”

From there – make your next message a little sexier…

2. “I’m thinking about how good you’re lips are going to taste when I kiss you tonight”

This will get your woman starting to fantasize about you kissing her.

She might reply with something like THIS:

“I can’t wait darling. Works so boring. Looking forward to being in your arms tonight!”

When your woman sends you a message like that it is your signal that she is getting a little turned on. YOU are definitely on her mind at this point, NOT HER WORK/JOB.

Follow her response up with something a little more naughty, like this:

3. “I’m looking forward to slowly kissing every inch of your body baby”

When you send your woman a message like this – you can reasonably expect her to be getting more than a little turned on and SEXUALLY EXCITED.

The fact that she is feeling like that at work (possibly in a packed office), is even more exciting and NAUGHTY for her.

She may respond with:

“Oh babe, I’m really turned on”

Or, she might say:

“Babe, STOP IT – I can’t take this at work”

Whichever reply she gives you – CARRY ON.

No matter what she says, she wants to hear more. Your text messages are most likely ten times more interesting than whatever else she is spending her day doing.

Keep the conversation going with something like this:

4. “Ok I’ll stop texting you now babe because I don’t want to distract you. Just before I stop, this is what I’d have said if I was going to carry on messaging you… After I’ve taken all your clothes off and kissed every inch of your body, I’m going to lick you right where you want it! My hot breath and warm tongue are going to drive you crazy and I’m going to keep going until you come for me like my good girl”.

Now hear me out…

YES, that is a long text message. BUT believe me when I say it – IT WILL DRIVE YOUR WOMAN CRAZY.

Try it and see.

She will almost definitely come back with something like this:

“Oh babe, what are you doing to me? You are driving me crazy and I’m meant to be working! That sounds amazing. Tell me more…”

And of course – you do exactly that… tell her more…

5. “I’m going to make you feel so good babe. After I’ve given you an orgasm with my tongue I’m going to give you the best sex ever! Deep and hard – just how you like it. Got to get back to work right now though. See you tonight”

Listen up – this is priceless!

I’m smirking as I type this because I know how POWERFUL this is. The reason I know is because I do it with my girlfriend all the time.

When you send your woman a message like this one, you can guarantee several things:

  • She WANTS YOU and she wants you badly
  • She wants to hear more (don’t give her anymore though. TEASE HER and make her wait till you see her that night)
  • She is wet (and this will feel very naughty to her because she’s probably wet at a totally inappropriate time – whilst she’s at work)

Once you get good at this whole “naughty text sex thing” you can just make it up as you go along.

Just remember, much the same as with regular sex – it pays to start slowly and then get more naughty.



How to Write a Motion Graphics Design Or Animation Treatment

Give Yourself the best chance of winning the Design or Animation project with these guidelines

The Title & Introduction

The very first thing you will write on any treatment is the name of the project, so it is highly advisable to make sure you get this part correct. When taking a brief it is always a good idea to take as detailed notes as possible about all aspects of the project including the people involved, key words, reference material, technical aspects or limitations, audio preferences and project working titles. These notes will assist when putting the basics into a treatment, and showing your fullest understanding of the brief, like the correct title, or key words that the client was at pains to describe the project with.

Once you have a clean leading page with the clients name, the name of the project, and any subtitle, you are ready to add the first and most important body of text, the introduction or approach.

The introduction, outline, premise or approach to a treatment is a vital and concise 2 or 3 line paragraph, clearly telling the reader what it is they are about to read, and the reason for reading it. Ideally this paragraph will ‘grab’ the reader immediately and tweak their interest, wanting to read the rest of the document.

The Writing Style

The use of descriptive language is an important part of the art of all writing, no less with treatments, where you ideally need to squeeze all the information into one or two sides of a4 paper to paint a clear picture in the readers mind’s eye of exactly what they can expect the final film or animation to look like.

When describing your concept, try and use flowing and elegant phrasing while being descriptive and to the point. A wide use of vocabulary will keep the reader interested and their brain visualising the result.

For example, The brief is for a television crime drama title sequence, and the Director wants the style of the title sequence to reflect the period, atmosphere and subject matter of the script. The Director may use quite descriptive words in a brief like, dark or chilling, ensure to re-use these words in your treatment and add some of your own to further embellish. For example; dark foreboding blackness, or chilling, spine jarring finale.

Try not to repeat the same word too many times, and think of alternative ways to describe the same or similar part of the project. For example; when mentioning a transitional effect in the animation or film, try and find new ways to write about that effect.

Your Branding

Ensure that your business, company or studio logo and branding is clearly marked on the front of the treatment, as well as the body of the treatment to ensure that all who read it will know where it is from and who wrote it. It will also help ensure your ideas stay as your own and are not borrowed by someone else. Another consideration is to flatten your document to ensure that the logo and graphics are displayed correctly and no one is able to edit your treatment or take paragraphs for re purposing into another document. Saving your MS Word or other word processor document as an Adobe Acrobat PDF file is an ideal way of achieving this.

The Concept

This is the main body of text where you can flesh out the idea in more detail. It is important to ensure that this paragraph is easy to read and to the point. Use this part of the treatment as a way of quickly describing the rest of the information that you eloquently touched on in your Introduction. Try and keep the sentences brief with enough space around them to be absorbed easily. Allow the sentences to flow together easily to ensure the reader does not get lost partway through, it is vital that your idea makes sense from start to finish giving your reader the chance of constructing the piece in their own minds eye.

Imagery

Consider including images to assist your concept.

You will probably be producing a storyboard separately to your treatment, but using additional reference images, character illustrations, environment and backgrounds or mood board images in your treatment can really help the reader to grasp what you are saying. Positioning the images is also important, breaking up the paragraphs can lose the readers flow, so try adding an image or series of images under a paragraph.

Using a large image under the Introduction can act as a real eye grabber for the rest of the document.

Reference Material

Reference material is key to helping sell your idea, especially if you can reference your own past work. It is another chance to showcase your work and give the client every confidence in your ability to deliver what you are writing about. References can be web links, embedded links, images, sounds, music tracks, illustration or video. If possible, try and collate it all into one place, an ftp location, a website, a file share location or as zipped attachments to make it easy for the client to explore your references and not have to go to many different internet sites. Again, keeping the treatment easy to read, follow and absorb is paramount.

The Technical Breakdown

The technical section of a treatment should be very factual, very brief and very clear. The clarity will, once again, illustrate to the reader that you have carefully thought the process through and understand exactly what it will take to achieve the finished result. You will always be able to change your thinking with kit later, but at least at this early stage you have approached the idea with a way of technically creating your masterpiece. This paragraph will also illustrate your ability to handle both aspects of any motion graphics project, creativity and technical knowhow, the core components to any motion graphics designer.

Think about outlining what and how many computers you will need, how much disk storage space and backup will be required, which software packages will you be using and are there any specific plug-ins or presets that are relevant. Also take into account the amount of rendering time and hardware that will be needed, archiving considerations, and final delivery formats and other delivery aspects.

Music and Audio

As we all know, music and sound effects can really bring animation and video to life and is a major part of any visual experience. Touch on ideas you have for the music and sound design, include references to other similarly styled videos and describe the tone and atmosphere that the music will evoke with your visuals.

The Budget & Estimated Costs

Costs and quotes are also a huge factor in whether you will succeed in getting the project you desire, but refrain from including any mention of money in the treatment. Instead provide a separate quotation document including any reference to technical or creative specifics in the treatment.

The Conclusion / Summary

The final part of your treatment should act in a similar way to the introduction.

It is a short paragraph that allows you to quickly remind the reader of the key points you discussed in the rest of the document. It is also a chance to use good language to leave the reader wanting to see what you have described, wanting to explore further, wanting to make it come to life.

List of Components

INTRODUCTION – short and sweet

CONCEPT – main descriptive body of text

IMAGES – reference material

TECHNICAL – geeky but essential breakdown

AUDIO – style and reference guide

SUMMARY – the final roundup



The Complete Guide to Pricing Your Tattoo Design

I often get asked by people looking to get a tattoo how much do you think this will cost? Of course each person has their own unique design in mind and everyone wants to know exactly how much their design is going to cost them. However, pricing tattoos is very difficult. You can not give a simple answer to a question like that. The price of a tattoo can vary on a lot of factors. However, here is a general guide so you know some of the factors and some price ranges that would be considered decent.

First Factor: The Shop

Every shop has it’s own pricing guidelines and even every tattoo artist in the shop might have their own ways of pricing a tattoo. The more famous the shop or artist is the more expensive the tattoo will be. Also the price can change depending on how busy the shop is at the time you go in. If they are packed up with clients then they are going to quote you a much higher price then if they are looking for work.

Second Factor: The Design

Another factor that goes into the final price of the tattoo is the design itself. If you have a really large tattoo design in mind and you want the art work to be drawn by the tattoo artist it is going to cost a significant amount more then if you have some flash design that you found at their shop on the wall. So the size of the design and the difference between custom drawn and flash will significantly change the price.

Third Factor: Time

Another factor that always goes into pricing the tattoo design is the amount of time it will take to do the work. A large back piece is going to take a significant number of hours over a small wrist tattoo. If you are looking for something really big like a full back tattoo or a body suit you are going to be spending lots of hours over multiple visits to the tattoo shop and it is going to cost a huge amount of money. You should easily spend thousands of dollars for a full back tattoo. However, small designs that can be done quickly in one sitting of 30 minutes to an hour are obviously going to cost much less.

General Rules

First and foremost don’t ever go bargain shopping for a tattoo design. Do you really want the guy that is the cheapest to do you tattoo design? This is a permanent tattoo design that you are going to live with for the rest of your life and you do not want it coming out all messed up just to save a few bucks. Second you do not ever want to try and negotiate or bargain down a tattoo artist. This will infuriate the artist and can often offend them. Most tattoo artists do their work for a living. Yes they might love creating designs and making tattoos but in the end they do this to put food on their plate and pay the bills. They have worked hard to get to the level they are at and be able to charge the prices they are charging. Negotiating with them is like doubting their skills. With that in mind you do not want to negotiate and you do not want to go with the lowest price it can be wise to search a few different shops and get quotes from different artists. Thus way you can find an artist that you connect well with and someone who you like their designs. The price often will seem reasonable to you if you shop around and find an artist that you really like.

So this gets us down to the question we started with so how much will my tattoo design be? Obviously due to what is stated above this is hard to answer. However here is a general guideline that can help you but it into some ranges and perspective.

Small tattoo design (wrist, foot, ankle) – Between $50 and $150

Medium tattoo design (forearm, leg, upper back, lower back) – Between $150 to $500

Large tattoo design (Full back, sleeve, full leg) – Between $500 to $2,000



Dos and Don’ts While Shopping Baby Clothes

Little Infants are the most amazing and loveable creatures in this whole wide world. Babies have 5 times more sensitive skin than an adult so they also need extra special care of every expect either clothing or baby products that we are using for them. If you are confused of what to shop for your new born baby then you don’t need to be embarrassed or worried because there are plenty of parents like you out there.

Many first time parents find themselves confused when it comes to buying clothes for their infant. From my experience I am telling you that buying clothes for these little adorable babies is a very exciting task. From the experience of raising 2 kids I would like to share some do’s and don’ts while buying clothes for your infant.

Do’s

1. Give Priority to Fabric:-

There are varieties of fabrics available in the market for sensitive baby Skin. Always keep in mind that a baby’s skin is much more sensitive than you can even think of, that is the reason why parents must look for soft smooth and skin friendly fabric. You can turn the cloth inside out and feel the softness with your hand. Babies get rashes to easily so try to avoid harsh and scratchy stuff, they can harm baby’s soft skin. So cotton is the best option. Cotton cloth gets shrunk 10% after the first wash; buy 1 or two size ahead than your actual baby size.

2. Comfortable Clothes Gives You Happy Baby:-

Always buy comfortable cloth for your baby. Avoid harsh patches on the clothes. Look for no collar or soft collar upper-wear. The collar and the patches make the cloth adorable but does not feel comfortable for baby it can give rashes to baby’s neck. You will regret just after 5 minutes you put it on your beautiful child’s body. Make sure the cloth that you are buying has enough space to go through baby’s head; putting tight neck cloth through the newborn infant’s head can hurt him many ways.

3. Buy Clothes According to Weather:-

Always buy clothes that are appropriate for your baby according to the different weather conditions. For winter season consider one-piece outfits that even keeps baby feet warm. Avoid something like sticks around the baby’s waist and makes him comfortable. Don’t buy jeans or pants, although they look fashionable by they are not comfy. For summer season look for open neck cotton upper wear with soft shorts. Buy those cloths that can protect them for heat.

4. Save Money:-

Do not buy exact size cloth of infant always go for 1 or 2 Size ahead of its actual size, the reason behind is babies grow quickly and some fabrics get shrink 10% after first wash. Some stores sell clothes at cheaper rates when you buy them in sets, it does not mean you buy all clothes for summer only. If your baby is 8 months old, buy 14-18 months baby clothes also. You can even sell your old used baby clothes at various websites online.

Don’ts

1. Avoid Choking Hazards:-

Always avoid clothes with extra buttons and zips, your precious baby can swallow them accidentally and from time to time always look for any loose button and broken zip on baby cloth if there is any fix it or change the cloth. In summers buy open neck t-shirts for baby and for winter season buy one piece outfits with no button on sleeves.

2. Don’t Buy Expensive Fashionable Clothes:-

Never buy expensive clothes for your baby there are two reasons for it. First one is babies grow faster so soon those expensive clothes will be worth nothing. Summer clothes are of no use in winters vice versa. The Second the most important reason is fashionable clothes are not comfortable for babies they got patches, zips extra buttons and many more which can irritate baby skin even give him red patches.

3. Don’t Buy Tight Elastic:-

Try to avoid tight elastic pants, jeans, and t-shirt sleeves. Tight elastic cloth can make infant extremely uncomfortable and it can even scratch the part of the body where the elastic rubs. Always look for shorts or pants with mild elastic or with no elastic. Always consider skin friendly clothes for little toddler.

Some Tips Parents Must Take Into Consideration:-

  • Buy mild colors for newly born baby.
  • Choose fabric that does not create any problem in baby’s breathing.
  • Try to find the reason if baby is crying constantly, clothes could be troubling him.
  • Don’t buy tight clothes, always look for bit bigger size than actual baby size.
  • Choose clothes that are easy to be put on and put off.
  • Baby gloves and socks must be extra soft. Giver extra care to the baby’s neck, hands, feet and waist.
  • If you are tempted by fashion go for it but stay in baby’s comfort zone.
  • If there is a sale going on do not buy clothes in bulk for one season, think intelligently



Psychology Of A Suicide Bomber

It could be you.

Terrorist attacks are not about terrorism. Politicians like to spread the view that terrorist attacks are carried out by ‘evil’ men in order to spread terror. Nothing is further from the truth. Just as “warfare is politics being carried out by other means” – to use Major-General Von Clausewitz’s famous phrase, so is terrorism. Just as the number of soldiers likely to be killed in a particular war action is almost incidental to the general who plans it, so is the number of civilians likely to be killed in a terrorist action. What is very clear about all acts of terrorism is that they are carried out as specific acts designed to achieve specific political results.

Take for example 9/11 in New York City in 2001. This was a general declaration of war following a series of build-ups by both sides. American needs for oil and Saudi Arabian Wahhabism. The kicking out of US oil corporations from further developmental work in Saudi Arabia. The Gulf War against Saddam’s take-over of the Kuwaiti oilfields. The closure on the part of the Saudis of the last US base, as well as the full adoption of Shariah law in the constitution of Saudi Arabia. The build up of a massive US base in Qatar and Special Units around Saudi Arabia. The 9/11 attacks were specifically planned against the Pentagon, the White House probably (which didn’t succeed) and world trade in general, symbolized by the Twin Towers. The large number of people killed was incidental. No one believes for one minute that Mohammad Atta thought the World Trade Center Towers would actually collapse.

Too easily the word ‘mindless’ is used by politicians in conjunction with terrorists and their acts when, in fact, terrorists are far from being ‘mindless’. Suicide bombers are not the mindless, evil individuals they are often portrayed to be. They are, more often than not, well educated and more sensitive than the norm for their age groups, and they see themselves as carrying out political acts rather than terrorism per se. Furthermore, suicide bombers are not necessarily confined to religious protesters.

This is the conclusion reached by Dr. Ariel Merari, Director of the Political Violence Research Unit at Tel Aviv University. It is also the conclusion reached by a host of other political analysts and counter-terrorism experts throughout the world.

Most suicide bombers anywhere appear to be normal. Study after study has shown that suicide terrorists are better off than the average for their community, and better educated just as well. They are also rarely suicidal in the pathological sense. Dr. Merari in particular has traced the background of every suicide bomber in the Middle East since 1983, and has found symptoms of mental illness or drug and alcohol abuse in very few. Furthermore, suicide bombers do not have to be Islamic extremists either, or even radicalized by faith. True, the 9/11 attackers were all Muslims, as are the vast majority of suicide attackers in Iraq, Afghanistan and Israel. Yet many of the suicide bombers in Lebanon in the l980’s were from secular Christian backgrounds. And one of the modern pioneers of suicide terrorism, the Tamil Tigers in Sri Lanka, are secular Marxist-Leninists.

The question, then, is how can normal, well-educated young men, some with above-average sensibility, end up sacrificing themselves and killing civilians for a cause that seems a long way from their daily lives? The answer is, much more easily than one would think. The key lies less with the bombers themselves than with the organizations that recruit and prepare them.

Virtually every suicide attack in modern times has been conceived and managed by militant groups, and they all employ the same methods:

[ ] First find people, usually young and male, who are sympathetic to the group’s cause and organize them into small units.

[ ] Second, exploit their motivation to fight for the cause using religious or political indoctrination, emphasising the heroic nature of their mission and the nobility of self-sacrifice.

[ ] Third, have all members of the unit make a pact declaring their commitment to what they are about to do. Beyond this point, it becomes psychologically very hard for them to back out.

Dr. Merari and others who have studied suicide attacks across the world have found this pattern in just about every case, from kamikaze pilots to the 9/11 hijackers. The sense of duty to a small group of peers that the process creates can, they say, turn just about anyone into a potential suicide bomber. The crucial factor is not the psychology of the individual but, rather, that of the group. Many researchers have shown that it is not difficult to persuade normal, rational people to do evil things if you apply the right conditioning. Persuading someone to die in the doing is not as fantastical as it seems.

The immediate reaction to suicide bombers is to label them as animals, or inherently evil. But this will not do. Blowing themselves up in a crowd is often the first evil thing these people have done in their entire lives.

And they are not animals. The most difficult thing of all, in fact, is to recognize that suicide bombers are, alas, all too human.

World of Warcraft Classes

In World of Warcraft (WoW), there are a total of 9 playable classes. You can not freely choose race and class, as it is somewhat limited. Not all races can be combined with all classes. To choose your class will be your most important choice in the game. This is because you define your play style within WoW with your class, whether it is healing and support, dealing much damage, or be the one who takes the damage and controls the monsters. Do not fear; there are a few roads you can walk within each class as well which you can change whenever you want. These “roads” are called talents. With talents, you specialize in a part of your class. For every level you achieve, you gain one talent point which you can spend on whatever talent tree you want. Every class has three talent trees. In other words, you can walk three different roads with your character per class.

Warrior

A warrior is strongly specialized in fighting with powerful two-handed weapons to deal damage or with a one-handed weapon and a shield to take all the pounding from a monster (called tanking). Very wanted for Arena teams as damage dealer and very wanted for instances and raid dungeons as tank. Warriors have the following talent trees: Arms (Damage), Fury (Damage) and Protection (Tank).

Samsung Gear S3 VS Gear S2: A Side by Side Comparison

Samsung has just disclosed its seventh smartwatch, the Gear S3 along with its two variants, Classic and Frontier. The fresher model comes with some incredible features and makes various improvements on last year’s watches. Here, we are going to compare both of these exceptional watches so you can analyse better which one to shop and which one to ignore. So, let’s get started with side by side comparison of Samsung Gear S3 and Gear S2.

Variants Comparison:

First, let’s discuss the variants of these two great smartwatches. Both Gear S3 and S2 come with two separate and unique designs. The Samsung Gear S3 variants are Gear S3 Classic and the Gear S3 Frontier. Overall, there is no big difference between the two forms, except its strap style and weight and Frontier with LTE built-in. Inversely, The Samsung Gear S2 alternatives were named as Gear S2 Basic and Gear S2 Classic.

Design Comparison:

The design of Samsung Gear S3 is elegant, unique, and rugged but it is not suited for women due to its bigger size and wrist styling. Samsung Gear S3 Classic version appearance is almost similar to the LG Watch Urbane than the S2 Classic.

Overall, S3 comes with a dress watch style in comparison with S2, which looks more like a sports watch due to its sporty plastic curves. The rubber strap has been upgraded with a leather strap and a 22 mm pin in a metal body similar to the S2 Classic.

It is more loyal to compare the S3 Classic with the S2 Classic, which had a standard 20 mm leather band. However, the S2 Classic smartwatch delivers more visual features in comparison with the S3 Frontier. Frontier version of S3 is more sporty, according to the majority of people.

Size Comparison:

When it comes to size, the Samsung Gear S3 is one of the largest smartwatches in the market nowadays. 46mm size is way too big for the individuals with smaller wrists. While on the other hand, Gear S2 was the smaller ones.

Weight Comparison:

With additional size, Samsung Gear S3 is bulky too, almost 30% heavier than its predecessors. Frontier version is even 8% to 10% heavier than the Classic. Due to its bigger size and weight, S3 is not suited for the individuals with smaller wrists. And it will not attract women either.

Display Comparison:

The screen size of both Samsung Gear S3 variants is larger than its predecessors. S3 has 1.3-inch 360×360 pixel AMOLED Always-On display with a pixel density of 278ppi.Although the bigger screen size is convenient to read but it also increases the overall dimensions and the weight as well as decrease the pixel density of the device, which is not good at all. As the body weight increased up to 30% in the current model than the previous versions, the display size has also been increased by 15%. As far as display material is concerned, both Samsung watches use Corning Gorilla Glass. The S3 uses the SR+ composite, which is more damage resistant.

All in all, the Gear S2 technically has a brighter but smaller display. In comparison, S3 can display more on its Always-On display, which also keeps color intact instead of going to grayscale and delivers the best customisation.

Performance Comparison:

Performance wise, Gear S3 is far better than its predecessor. With the powerful processor, improved operating system, and more RAM, S3 is beating S2 in almost every department. It delivers 50% additional memory and battery comparing with its predecessor.

Battery Comparison:

Now let’s come to one of the most vital considerations of any gadget device, the battery. Samsung Gear S3 is loaded with 380mAh ambient light yet powerful battery that gives extra 24 hours than Gear S2’s 250mAH battery, and you remain connected up to 4 days. However, it may vary according to the usage of the device.

Software Comparison:

If you experience the Samsung Gear S3’s operating system then you will know that it is the same as was active on the S2 smartwatch, except now you can spin the bezel to accept or cancel calls and there are some minor visual changes. According to the manufacturer, both devices are compatible with Android and iOS.

Price Comparison:

Price is one of the most important aspects when it comes to buying these powerful and stunning smartwatches, and it would be your main concern too. Well, the basic model of Gear S2 costs 299 USD, and the S2 Classic is available at 349 USD. On the other hand, the Gear S3 opening price is 499 USD. Through a well-reputed shopping comparison engine; you can get your favourite smartwatch at the cheapest price while cutting the additional charges and taxes. These types of price check sources provide the best deals from the top retailers of any particular location.

Other Features Comparison:

Water Resistance

Both smartwatches are completely water-resistant and provide great protection against splashing, rain, and water drop with IP68 dust & waterproof rating. IP68 water resistance means you can put it under the water of up to one meter deep and for maximum 30 minutes. It is far better than Apple watch that can’t be worn in rain or while swimming.

Wireless Charging

Both models of Samsung smartwatch support wireless charging.

Speakers

Unlike Gear S2, speaker and microphone are pre-installed in S3 that let you call more freely.

GPS & Connectivity

GPS is only active in the 3G variants of the Samsung Gear S2. Inversely, all the S3 models have built-in GPS. In addition, the Frontier version of S3 has built-in 3G/LTE connectivity, so you can make and receive calls as well as check other activities without even using the phone.

Samsung Pay

Samsung Pay has been added into the Gear series since 2016. However, the 2015 models were NFC-only, and so retailers were required to use an extra NFC scanner for accept payments. The 2016 models have both NFC and MST technology, and thus you can shop from anywhere. While doing online shopping, try to compare prices for getting the cheapest deals.

Final Words:

With the bigger display, bigger RAM, and bigger battery, Samsung Gear S3 has already given Gear S2 a tough time but it doesn’t mean that S3 is replacing the Gear S2. Both models have their own ups and downs. And so picking up a one between these two is not an easy decision to make. Although S3 is built with some amazing new features, but it is also a bit bulky and due to the bigger size it’s not well suited for the individuals with smaller wrists. At first look, it looks like that the S3 is made only for men. On the other hand, S2 has a perfect size and includes all the major features of a well-equipped smartwatch. But it doesn’t offer LTE. So it is worth spending some time to compare features and prices of both these watches and choose a one according to your preferences.



Fever Blisters

Debate on exactly how to treat fever blisters has been around for some time since the variant of the herpes simplex virus has been known for several centuries. But exactly what are fever blisters? First off Fever Blisters are more commonly known these days as Cold Sores or Oral Herpes (herpes simplex virus which is a sexually transmitted disease). The most common location on the body for fever blisters is on the lips or around the mouth area.

Fever blisters are highly contagious and when in the blistering state, be sure to stay well away from anyone that doesn’t have it or does have it. And it is also a good idea not to share any eating utensils or food while you or the person has a outbreak.

Since there is currently no known cure for fever blisters the best prevention is abstinence while an outbreak is occurring. A outbreak can last from 2 to 12 days but it can be controlled.

What are the symptoms?

Some experience a tingling sensation around the mouth area. Some people experience an itching where the blister is going to appear. This is the time to react and take action. Cleaning the area and preparing it can often reduce the cold sore in its blistering stage.

What can you do?

Firstly do not scratch the blister, you can use a hot face cloth and soap to clean the area but be sure not to leave the cloth laying around. Throw it directly into the washer. Afterward you should apply some petroleum jelly or lip balm to stop the spread of the blister. Make sure it is not a stick lip balm as you will have to throw it out. Because this can keep re-infecting you.

Some common cold sore home remedies that have been used are using salt pressed on to the affected area to burn the blister. But all that does really is dries out the blister and can cause cracking plus it causes a lot of pain.

Placing a tea bag on the area, leaving it there for several minutes in hopes of having it heal the blister. You have to have the tea bag steaming hot for it to work. So to endure that much extreme heat for several minutes to stop the further outbreak could be too much for you. Proceed with caution!

Using witch hazel on a cotton swab, this stings a bit but has some healing qualities. This is the same as using benzyl alcohol to clean and clear the blister. The only problem would be finding witch hazel as it is not commonly found in most pharmacies.

Over the counter medications such as Abreva for cold sores have some results but also can have some side effects. Since every person is different you should seek advice from your doctor!



5 Reasons Little White Bumps Are On Your Face and How to Get Rid Of Them

Are you making these mistakes each time you spot a little white little bump on your face? Fixing those little white bumps starts with a small dose of education and ends with a big dose of prevention. After understanding the five reasons below, your little bumps should give way to clearer skin.

Reason #1: You have no clue what those little white bumps are anyway.

Little white bumps, or milia, are keratin-filled cysts, or simply little globs of protein under the skin. There are generally two types of milia. Primary milia may result from oil glands that have not fully or properly developed. Secondary milia result from trauma to the skin.

Reason #2: You think all little white bumps are acne, and treat them that way.

Just because you have little white bumps on your face does not necessarily mean that you have acne. Milia, are little balls of protein beneath the skin that do not have a pore, or hole in the skin through which to escape.

Comedones or whiteheads are excess fats and wastes that are trapped in a hair follicle and so they clog up the pore. In short, milia are proteins trapped within the skin, while comedones are fats and skin debris trapped within the pore.

Exfoliating the skin, or removing the dead skin cells from your skin with an abrasive product or chemical, is beneficial. But brutally scrubbing your face with soaps and chemicals too frequently may actually create milia. To avoid this, remember that gentle exfoliation helps prevent excess dead skin cell build-up that could clog your pores and cause whiteheads, not milia.

This gentle exfoliation helps make eventual removal of the milia easier because the skin layer around the milia becomes thinner, with frequent, yet gentle exfoliation. In short, Exfoliate your skin to prevent milia, not to cure them.

Reason # 3 You have no idea what causes those little white bumps anyway.

When you were a baby, you were probably covered with milia that disappear after a few days. Or, you may have inherited milia from your parents.

On the other hand, you may develop milia after excessive exposure to the sun. The reasons for developing milia after sun exposure are debatable. According to some studies, the active ingredients sunscreens like Parsol 1789 may cause sun allergies and later lead to a milia breakout. Other studies blame the sun itself for “damaging” the skin can thus causing little white bumps.

Some people experience milia around the mouth. This could be the result of fluoride irritation from toothpaste.

Reason # 4: No one ever told you how to prevent milia.

The best way to prevent milia is to avoid treating your skin with excessively harsh chemicals and to limit sun exposure.

To reduce creating milia around the eyes, use eye creams with the least amount of ingredients possible to avoid irritating the delicately thin eye area. Also, gently touch the eyes and avoid rubbing the eyes vigorously so as not to damage the skin.

When brushing you teeth, try to keep the pasty foam from staying around your mouth too long. This limits possible fluoride irritation to the skin.

Use a sunscreen with the least amount of ingredients. Extraneous ingredients like fragrances may irritate your skin. Additionally, purchase sunscreens that offer physical sun blockage that contain active ingredients like titanium oxide or zinc oxide.

Reason #5: You still want to know what you can do right now to get rid of milia.

The key to getting rid of milia is realizing that they have no escape route, those little bumps are trapped under the skin. So, to get them out, you’ll need to have a professional like a dermatologist or aesthetician extract them. You can extract the milia yourself, but this involves risks.

Precautions

You need to ensure that you milia are not symptoms of some underlying disease or illness. Also, if you extract the milia yourself, you may have trouble completely pulling out the cysts, as the removable process may prove too painful.

Otherwise, if you are confident with your health and courage, you can cleanse your hands and face. Then wet a cloth with warm water and apply it to your face for a few minutes. Gently apply a sterile needle to the center of the little white bump to create a tiny opening in the skin.

Wrap your thumbs in a clean tissue and, using your thumbs, proceed to gently squeeze the contents of the little white bump out. Finally, cleanse the area of the extracted little white bump with an astringent.

Now, you have no reason to walk around with little white bumps on your face. If you still think you do, please consider the possibility that you’re just telling yourself little white bumpy lies.
