T25 – A Focusing Exercise

EH

T25

Think of Focus T25 like is a bunch of twenty five minute workouts that have the sole purpose of making your heart rate increase. People always think that it’s an easy program because it is so short, but they are completely and magnificently wrong! Just because the workouts are so short it doesn’t mean that they are easy. You are working for every single second. That’s how you lose weight.

This is taught by the zen master and popular weight loss guru, Shaun T, who is a very professional and learned trainer and dietitian. He will carefully take you through the zigzagging booklets and manuals and videos. Everyday you look on the calendar and choose the corresponding video and/or course materials. It’s like you’re back in school again (even if you currently are).

T25 is divided into 2 completely and utterly different sections: they are alpha and beta. Instead of like a video game (where you test in BETA), you will start in alpha and THEN go into the coveted beta stage. It’s funny because usually beta is what you DON’T want to be. But in this case, the beta will get you looking alpha! Read this T25 workout review for more information.

Packaged in the Program

This spectacular workout includes:

  • Eleven videos of Shaun T working out (100’s of minutes altogether)
  •  Easy Guide
  • Organized Calendars
  • 15 lb resistance bands
  • Five Day Nutrition Plan

Diet Information

T25 gives you a nutrition pamphlet completely free of charge, that is set to make you lose the fastest and most amount of weight. It will let you know how many daily calories you should be eating and even break them down into when they should be eaten (breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks).

The nutrition plan will not work if you do not stick to it. It is an essential part of the program and you need to treat it as such. Too many people think that they can just workout and eat junk and they will look good. This is absolutely false – a folly.  You diet heavily influences what your body will end up looking like.

Make your body proud, happy, and healthy!

Tips On How To Get A Job in Chicago

Getting a job these days is becoming increasingly difficult. The good news is there are a few things you can do to improve your odds of landing one. If you want to know how to get a job, then check out these tips below.

Highlight Your Strengths
Regardless if you are filling out an application or submitting a resume, you want to highlight at least 2-3 of your strengths. Most applications have a section that allows you to mention your work experience or reasons why you’re good for the job and things of that nature. This is where you want to shine by highlighting the 2-3 areas you are the strongest in. For example, if you have strong leadership skills, then highlight why you have good leadership skills and give examples of how you’re a good leader.

Update Your Resume
People often make the mistake of not updating their resume. They end up submitting resumes that are years old, which can hamper the chances of them getting a job. When you are looking for work, make sure your resume is updated and contains references that you are still in contact with. If you’re not good at creating resumes, then have someone else do it for you. There are professionals who can create a resume for you or you can use software or a template to help you create an updated resume that will grab the attention of businesses.

Research The Company You’re Applying For A Job With
When you apply for a job, one of the questions usually asked is why you want to job or why you want to work for the company, and the answer to this question can make or break your chances of getting the position. Do a little bit of research on the company and find out things such as major accomplishments they have achieved throughout the years and find out exactly what your position will entail. Mention a few of the company’s major accomplishments and how impress you are with them. Doing this will show you have done your research and will make a good impression on hiring managers.

Apply For Jobs Daily
Don’t just apply for one job and hold out hope you will get it. Instead, apply for job openings on a daily basis. If you want to really improve your odds of getting work, then apply for 2-3 jobs per day, even on the weekends. Fill out applications online, build a resume online, mail resumes, make phone calls and so forth. The more jobs you apply for, the better your chances are you will land an interview.

dress-to-impress

Dress To Impress
This may sound like commonsense, but too many people dress way too casual for interviews. First impressions are everything and most employers will notice if you’re not dressed to impress. Take time to make yourself look presentable. Even if the interviewer tells you that you can dress casual for an interview, don’t. Always wear a nice shirt, pants, tie and so on.

That is how to get a job in today’s world. Keep those tips in mind and you’ll be working in no time.

Where to Host Your Anime Blog

If you are anything like me, then you probably are absolutely in love with Japanese animation. However, anyone like me knows that it’s not called “Japanese animation”. You see, we actually have a shorthand phrase we use to describe our love for this art form. We simply call it “anime“. According to the internet, anime is hand-drawn (sometimes computer animated) television or movies that hail from Japan. This is a type of cartoon that often has a very color filled color palette matched only by it’s colorful characters. They are usually set in some type of wondrous fantasy or alternate world or time period. 

It can be truly hard to find a good place to watch these quality television shows. That is precisely why you need to find a website that is hosted in China. That is the only true way to know that it is part of the culture that you so enjoy. And yes, we know that China is not Japan, but it IS in Asia. As far as your IP is concerned, Asia hosting is not USA hosting.

It’s not like an anime is any better because you are watching it on a site that uses Hong Kong web hosting, but the chances of it being taken down or removed are drastically less. Any avid fan knows that searching for a very specific show can be extremely tough, and that you always end up on a deleted site or broken link.

The truth is that a few of these hosts in China are no good, but the ones that we have linked to in this article are definitely the best that you can find. Not only that, but they offer some of the most competitive prices in the industry. If you don’t believe me, I invite you to research it yourself. Let me know if you find anything better, though that is quite unlikely.

If you have been a loyal reader to this site, you will know that feedback is always appreciated and expected. You know my most famous saying here in the underground: if you read this, you’re already a friend!

Looking for Stickers? Check Underground

There is a saying that goes around the inner city areas of downtown Chicago. The saying goes something like: Whether you know where I am or not, I’m always underground. The underground city really is a terrific gem. Think about in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets when the title character needs to go to Diagon Alley via Floo Powder. He mistakenly yells out DI-gon alley which sends him to Knockturn Alley. Our favorite character finds himself in the vicious belly of the wizard underground.

Now yes, I understand that this is not the best example, as it is made to be a very scary place (from which Hagrid has to rescue him), but some underground places are really truly awesome. You see, often times, it is simply fear of the unknown that turns us off to new possible experiences. It’s like in that Star Wars RAM commercial where a couple is looking up at a shooting star and the girl comments that “it looks so peaceful”. We, the audience, find this hilarious because we see the chaos that is going on up above on that speeding meteor.

One of my favorite things about this underworld were all of the various ways that people used to express themselves. There were people singing jolly and forlorn songs, reciting unique and interesting poems, playing various instruments and much, much more. I saw a whole lot of graffiti art posted on nearly any and every wall within sight and earshot. Most of it was probably very trashy, but some of it was absolutely magnificent. The great artist Banksy very well could have done some of it.

Another major key that I noticed was all of the car stickers that were scattered around every vehicle. When I say “every vehicle” I mean literally any motorized object that moves. We’re talking cars, trucks, SUVs, motorcycles, semi trucks, four wheelers and more. Oddly one of the things that was immensely popular down there were the rat fink stickers. I know it’s a little old fashioned, but I’m just reporting what I saw. Believe it or not but they were very gorgeous. They were the creepiest creatures for 25 cents. There were tons of them – take a look at the video below for some nostalgia. 

Isn’t that hilarious? They are actually very valuable now – so once you order them don’t ruin them. The best thing to do is to buy a bunch of them and start collecting them. One day they will be worth a ton of money (if they are authentic). Hopefully you find these decals as endearing as I do.

I also had a great time watching movies while I saw down there. Now, these were student made films – so they weren’t exactly winning any Oscars, but I still had a great time. Some of the films were better than a lot of mainstream films. It’s not about how much the budget was, it’s about the quality of the picture.

There’s a ton of fake love out there, but just know this: my love is real. Do not be swayed by imposters or pretenders, they will come at you with slick intentions. Do not be fooled.

Thank you for reading – please join us. It’s fun down here.

It’s Your Chinese Business

When you think about women from China, one of the first things that come to mind is naturally the beauty they possess. It’s certainly true that Chinese women in general are some of the most gorgeous on the planet. They tend to have lean and trim figures, they are petite, high cheekbones, gorgeous lips, smooth skin and silky black hair. Beyond their physical features, the women tend to take care of themselves quite well when it comes to health and grooming. They seem to have an innate sense of style, but really, they can look great no matter their style.

Of course, we all know that it’s not solely about the way a woman looks. When you are dating and looking for that someone special, it goes far beyond their appearance. It becomes about personality, character, humor, and what she really brings to the table as a human being. It’s those things that you will be able to experience when you meet her online. You may see pictures of her, but you will be able to spend more time getting to know who she really is beyond the exterior beauty. It’s time to consider this if you want to meet asian women.

When you are considering just what it is that you want to look for in a beautiful woman, always make sure you are going beyond the mere physical. Honestly, you will be much happier when you find someone that offers the entire package – beauty, intelligence, and humor. If you are only seeking beauty, you run the risk of finding someone who is nothing but an empty vessel, a gorgeous vase with nothing of substance on the inside that appeals to you. Think about the type of woman that you want to meet and that you would like to have a conversation with, not only look at.

Chivalry Is Not Dead When Dating

When you look at the ways that some people who are together and claim to be in love treat one another, you would think that good manners and chivalry had gone the way of the dodo. You’d think it is gone, kaput, and extinct. However, chivalry isn’t dead, especially not when you are dating Asian women. Very simple displays, such as opening doors for women when at the car, or going into a building can be an actual turn on for many Chinese women. This is because it’s less common to find these acts today, particularly when it comes to men in China.

Having a good heart goes hand in hand with chivalry. The way you treat her, along with her family and friends, will certainly color her opinion of you. However, it goes deeper than that. She wants to see how you treat others in the world around you. If you are not a kind and goodhearted person, then it is a turnoff. This applies whether in real life or on a Chinese dating site.

However, you have to keep a mind that there is a difference between being chivalrous and being overprotective and trying to do everything for her. She’s a big girl, and probably very strong and capable in her own right. What you need to do is strike a balance between modern man and knight in shining armor. Ideally, you will learn enough about her to follow her lead and know what she wants.

When you are kind and chivalrous, and when you show the woman the respect she deserves, your value will rise in her eyes. Instead of merely being a man that she met and dated, you could become the man that she sees as a large part of her future, and that’s just what you want.

Due to the fact the merchandise in any provided pawn shop will fluctuate at any supplied time, you will want to frequent them often.
