What Is Video Conferencing (part 2 of 2)

The chicken feet also known as acoustic echo cancellers are equipment that is usually hung from the ceiling. Basically, what this does it’s add both clarity and depth to the resonant frequency response of your audio sub system.

But the most important which you have to understand is the network connection. There are two protocols namely the H.320 and the H.323. If the one you are talking with is using a different one, it will be impossible for you to talk with one another because while the first uses ISDN lines the latter which is much simpler uses IP lines similar to what you use to browse the web.

The good news is that you can still talk to the person on the other end using the older system by using a bridge that is able to handle these mixed protocols.

The advantage of the new system is that you can transmit for multiple uses when the old one can only handle one. The newer version is also cheaper and faster so you get to talk in real time.

How much will you have to spend to get your video conferencing system up and running? Personal users will spend less than $500 while corporations could spend $100,000 or even more. You just have to shop around and see which one is able to fit your needs so you get value for your money.

The video conferencing system of today is one of the highlights of living in the digital age. No longer do we have to send a message and wait for awhile to get a response when you can get a reply right then and there which increases productivity and saves time and resources.

What Is Video Conferencing (part 1 of 2)

When you call for a conference, everyone is expected to arrive at a designed time and place to discuss an issue and resolve it. But if the people you need to speak with are in different states or countries and those cost of getting them to come is quite expensive, you have to try something else like video conferencing.

But first, what is video conferencing? Basically, this is a system that allows you to conduct meetings or trainings in different places simultaneously. It incorporates audio, video so you are able to talk and send data which takes away the barrier of distance that separates these individuals.

To make video conferencing possible, you need to buy the equipment. You also have to choose the method of transmission because the one you might be using may not be compatible with the other person.

These include the Codec unit, the camera, microphone, video display, network connection, stands and equipment charts if these will be mobile or stationary, NT-1 and chicken feet.

Most of these are self-explanatory so we will just focus on the Codec, NT-1 and chicken feet.

The Codec is considered to be the “brain and heart” of the video conference system. This is what compresses everything so you can send and receive messages on real time which can be viewed on the display device.

The NT-1 on the other hand is an electronic device otherwise called an terminal adapter that converts ISDN to your IP format. There is also the NT-3 version so instead of using one line, you will be able to use three.

Tai Chi for Health and for Science (part 2 of 2)


Science has discovered more benefits derived from being engaged in Tai Chi. By studying the smallest living organism inside our body, it is concluded that Tai Chi works through atoms and molecules inside and out. It has become a major exploration to research on what Tai Chi can and cannot do to our body.
Tai Chi conditions the different parts of the body. It cultivates a certain energy that travels through the sleeves of every muscle and nerve and those that come in between like films that are responsible for supporting and separating the different organs. Tai Chi reduces every cross-linking chemical that can contribute for cells to rust that may result to malfunctioning or strictly dying.
Aside from that, Tai Chi serves as a communicating factor for the relationship of organs to be more intimate. If Tai Chi is practiced at a certain level of discipline, it will, by then, be able to precipitate healthy changes deep inside the body like flushing out blood and making it flow freely around the vessels without the slightest fear of having a heart attack.
At the age of 50, physical strength declines. But with the help of Tai Chi exercises, it makes the major muscles in the body and almost all joints produce the perfect rhythm thereafter. It primes the body and increases the legs for it to become more flexible and loose. Studies show that people who are in the 80s and 90s are less prone to falling and their blood pressure decreased upon practicing Tai Chi.
It is most advisable to practice Tai Chi in the early morning when the sun is expected to rise to be able to catch more vitamins from the freshness of sunlight.

Tai Chi for Health and for Science (part 1 of 2)

Tai Chi is not only a mere form of exercise. It can look like that but in reality and basing on the principles of every movement, it is more than what meets the eye. Tai Chi focuses in a lot of things but most especially with two main factors: health and science.


Tai Chi is a Chinese tradition carried down from generation to generation that is done by slow flowing moves and balance shifting that strengthens the legs. While doing so, it conditions the ligaments and tendons of the knees, hips and ankles. It will increase the range of a person’s motion and make him or her more resilient and decrease the tendencies to be prone to pain and muscle spasms.

This shift in constant weight trains the body to balance and be more aware of its own status. It will lead to a more confident smoothness of movement that is practiced in the form and can be incorporated with everyday living. Tai Chi, through its physical exercises will readily focus the mind and condition the body. To practice Tai Chi for 15 to 20 minutes will dissipate stress and reduce any stress-related factors that will help increase stamina and strengthen the will and body.

People in the medical field recognize the advantages of practicing Tai Chi. Some of the benefits that were said – reduce risk of hypertension, increase oxygen intake and utilization that can lead to a more efficient breathing, strengthens the cardiovascular stamina, increase strength of joints and range of motion, the legs and knee are more powerful, and flexibility is increased. Stress hormones are reduced; making immunity improved and will heighten states of your mood.

Boxing Tips: How To Keep Standing And Fighting (part 2 of 2)

Increasing the pain tolerance through strength training and other special training is important as well. Accept it, while the main concept of boxing "hit and not get hit", no matter how good you are, how quick you are, and how smart you are, you cannot escape the punches of your opponent. And since it is a given fact, all you have to do is to deal with it.

Pain tolerance may be one of the most difficult aspects in boxing training but it is one of the most useful when you step into the ring. And no matter how hard you curse your trainer while enduring all the pain at the gym, you will have to thank him once you have realized that you have actually survived the punches of your opponent.

Improve your defenses. I am sure you are familiar with the phrase, "the best offense is the best defense." There is no argument against it. In boxing, defense has 2 purposes, to avoid getting hit and to create an opportunity for a counter attack. Defense has to be either of the 2. If it is not, you are not defending at all.

Finally, focus. Mental training is as important as physical training. Focus allows you to concentrate, think and remain calm. There is no window for mistake. If you want to win, you have to work hard for it.

Your opponent will not give it to so fight once you hear the first bell until you hear the last.

Boxing Tips: How To Keep Standing And Fighting (part 1 of 2)

In boxing, there is a clear line between fighting to win and fighting not lose. If you are fighting to win, you have an offensive mindset; whereas if you are fight not to lose, you are the defensive kind who are just trying to survive the round and can't wait to hear the sound of the bell. Fighting to win sounds good but it often ends there, especially if you are up against an opponent who is stronger and more aggressive than you.

It is even tougher to fight if your opponent knocks the wind off you and your instinct tells you to sit down, suffer the mandatory 8 count and hope you can get back up to fight. What if you are in this kind of scenario? What should you do to avoid a 10-8 round or worse, let your opponent score a K.O. at your expense?

First thing you should remember is to train hard. Manny Pacquiao, considered to be one of the best boxers in the world and the best in Asia, said "If you train hard, the fight will be easy." (From the documentary made for his fight against Oscar Dela Hoya.) This can be interpreted to many things but the bottom line is: the best way to avoid hitting the canvas and avoid defeat is to train hard.

Build your strength during training. Do not believe those who claim that fighting in the ring makes you stronger. It doesn't! Fighting will make you tired, weak, and even afraid. But if you have prepared for it well, you have a greater chance of making it and scoring a win over your opponent.

Train to last several rounds more than the actual fight schedule. This is where sparring and stamina training are very important. Sparring simulates your actual fight. Stamina training allows you to last during dozens of rounds of sparring sessions.

Really? Hydrogen peroxide for yeast infection (part 2 of 2)

Since our body produces only very little hydrogen peroxide, you can help by purchasing commercially  available ones in the local supermarket or in your neighborhood pharmacy. What you can do is mix a teaspoon of ordinary 3% hydrogen peroxide to a cup of water and apply it on the affected areas. Because hydrogen peroxide is produced naturally by the body, the chemical does not harm your vagina or the general health of your body.

What makes hydrogen peroxide very effective against Candida is the fact that peroxides breaks down into water and oxygen upon application. The oxygen helps the chemical application kill the fungal yeast infection. You need to be careful, however, when creating your own mix of hydrogen peroxide treatment solution. Too much hydrogen peroxide in the solution can cause a burning sensation in the affected areas. This burning sensation may likely to occur especially if the area has been inflamed or the infection is already quite serious.

A teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide on a cup of water seems to be an okay and safe mix. So far no bad reactions or complaints have been noted against this mixture of hydrogen peroxide and water for treating yeast infection.

You need to understand, however, the using the mixture of hydrogen peroxide and water is not meant to be a sole treatment solution for yeast infection. Natural remedies like this one is more effective when combined with other forms of treatment like proper diet and the use of other treatment techniques like the use of garlic paste, yogurt, and cider vinegar and water mix.

Other times, the condition might have reached an already critical stage that hydrogen peroxide for yeast infection treatment is no longer advisable. You need to consult a doctor and employ several other methods of treatment to cure your yeast infections.
