Eradicate Unemployment With Tax Breaks

It always astounds me the amount of people unable to find work no matter how well the economy is performing, there are people who have not been employed for years even during the good times, it seems a shame as they are perfectly fit and able to work and I presume they do want to work! At this moment in time the employment rate is pretty average 5.9% a lot better than a few years ago when it peaked at 10.7 but right now we are talking around 7 million Americans not working.

Better Local Healthcare Options for the Elderly

Healthcare in the USA is now at a record price and there are no signs that it will become more cost effective anytime soon, the USA healthcare system is more complex than ever now we have obamacare added to the mix but it’s a good system if you compare it to other types of healthcare around the world.

Big Business Funding Smaller Businesses

Small to medium sized businesses have always been and will always be the big businesses of tomorrow you only need to look at the tech industry of the 1970’s – 1980’s with the once tiny start ups Apple and Microsoft, both now huge businesses in their own right providing a wide range of products and services to the entire world and making billions of dollars.

It’s not easy operating a small business in fact it one of the hardest things I have every done I believe it’s a big learning curve for anyone attempting to get an idea off the ground with little or no money but it shouldn’t be this way starting a business should be encouraged by governments not hindered like the reality of starting a small business today.

Hunting: Why It Should Never be Banned in the Community

There are enough people in the population that utilize hunting as a method for gathering food and one biggest reason why it should never be banned in the first place. But of course, arguments can be made of people acquiring food cheaply than making a grocery store purchase. But this isn’t frequently the case. And even if it’s true, parts of rural society would suffer since a ban on hunting would mean taking a huge chunk of their culture.

Here are some reasons why hunting shouldn’t be banned in a community:

1. It represents a form of wildlife management
Hunting should never be banned since it helps prevent overpopulation of animals. Failing to contain the animal population can lead to the spread of disease and a drastic degradation of animal habitat and their ecosystem. There are many great websites talking about hunting, how it’s used for food, wildlife management and more, and you can find the best hunting websites online over at hunter insight

2. It unites people and environment together
One reason why some people are willing to see urbanization take a toll in the environment is because they have no direct connection to the land they’re staying in. A majority of rural communities (and hunters) still care about their open land as well as the water, animals, and greenery living in them. It’s also part of helping preserve the environment for their next generation.

3. It keeps people interested in preserving wildlife population
In the past years, U.S. wildlife population have depleted significantly. A majority of this is blamed on excessive market hunting. But with professional management becoming part of each state’s management system since the turn of century, the animal population has rebounded. Most conservation and monitoring efforts of the wildlife population today are actually coming from hunting organizations.

While these reasons of why hunting shouldn’t be banned in communities would stand on their own, there are still hunters out there who bring shame to the activity by hunting excessively. However, this isn’t entirely the case since industrial and urban aspects have led to polluting the environment.

Similarly, the case shouldn’t be made of unlawful hunters to take complete blame of the demise of hunting. Having a well-managed and regulated hunting system should be enforced as part of the country’s future.

We can thank Wes from for todays information. Thanks Wes!

New Petition: Repave Park on Lot Avenue

I wanted to write you all a notice about the upcoming community vote regarding the Lot Avenue Park and the plans to repave it.  As you know, we’ve had a few harsh winters the past 3 years and the government has not taken any independent initiative to repave the sidewalks and bike paths that have been pestered by potholes.  Our children are left with uneven ground, adding to the instance of trips and falls, and decrease in annual visitors to the park itself.  I personally visit this park weekly, as both of my children are actively involved in community sports and games are held in Lot Avenue’s particular fields.  It would be a shame to see such a once beautiful park go downhill from neglect.

During one of my daughter’s lacrosse games I noticed a little boy with all necessary safety equipment riding a small bike for children across the way. His his father was with him and they were clearly trying to make the most out of a sunny day by bringing his son to the park.  What was supposed to be a fun, carefree day headed south once the child hit one of the many bumps on the path that was once specifically used for bike riders.  Although the child was not hurt in any major way because he was on a balance bike and he was easily able to hoist himself up with his feet, I could sense the panic on the father’s face.

I walked over to have a chat with the father and it turns out that he has been attempting to teach his son how to ride a two-wheeler, hence the balance bike.  He said that even though Lot Avenue Park is closer to his house, he stopped taking his son there to practice because of how bad the potholes were.  The only reason he decided to take his son out to Lot Avenue this particular day was because he got called into work and wanted to get a quick practice in beforehand.  Apparently, the father knew of a man, an avid cycler, who recently broke his femur because of the potholes in Lot Avenue Park.  I think that fact would turn anyone off to using the bike path.

Being that I do have ties with the government, I brought this attention to our local city councilor and she has decided to bring it to a neighborhood vote, since the cost would adjust the current budget.  If this park gets paved once again to its original glory, it could once again be a place where cyclers felt comfortable to ride and where parents could bring their children’s balance bikes to help them learn.  It could help drive the park’s attendance once again.

The vote will be held at the next city council meeting taking place next month.  I hope all of you find time to schedule in this important community vote.  I also encourage my fellow neighbors to bring their comments and suggestions on community improvement to the monthly city council meetings.  If you don’t speak up, how can the government help serve you?

How To Build A Dog-Friendly Neighbourhood

In order to establish what is needed to make your neighbourhood more dog-friendly there are three areas to consider.

Dealing with people who don’t love dogs (do they really exist?)

The first of these is the position of those who are not dog or puppy lovers. While we all want our dogs to be accepted everywhere we would like to go, no reasonable owner would want to do so at the discomfort of others. Establishing why others would rather keep dogs out of certain situations might provide solutions to the problem.

For some the issue might be that of dog waste. It’s not pleasant and it’s totally unnecessary. At a basic level the disposal of your dog’s waste in an appropriate way, however unpleasant for you, is far better for everybody else. Arguing for the establishment of dog waste stations in the area, not only reassures non dog lovers that this issue is being taken seriously, but tells dog owners that their pets are welcome.

Approaching local businesses with a plan for allowing them to permit dogs on their premises with minimal inconvenience to their other customers can be another approach. By offering to establish ground rules and by discussing the matter with them it is often possible to identify their concerns and allay their fears.

Changing our own attitude

The second area to consider is our own attitudes and behaviour. It is a wonderful idea that dogs should be accepted into any situation but the fact is not everybody has our devotion to our canine friends, some are actually scared of dogs, so trying to force such people to endure the presence of pets they dislike or fear is not going to encourage dog-friendly relations and will make matters worse by alienating these people even further. Politeness and the willingness to listen and compromise go a long way.

Finally there is the needs of our dogs to consider. What do our dogs need in order to make them feel comfortable in whatever situations we wish to take them. Taking a dog to a place with loud noises or too many people is going to make them nervous and unpredictable.

For your neighbourhood to accept dogs there must be a sense of trust built up between owner, dog and public. We should also be aware of the behaviour of other dog owners who might be less understanding towards others, allowing their dog to foul sidewalks or simply letting their dog run free around the neighbourhood is going to cause friction with all concerned. Where appropriate a quiet word might be in order. Otherwise speaking to the authorities is a harsher solution.

Dogs are members of our families: they are friends, loved ones, children, a whole host of different things to different people. If they are to be accepted more widely in business places and with neighbours it is important, for the dog’s sake, to treat ownership of them as a privilege. As dog owners we would love to be able to take them wherever we go but this will only be achieved by accepting the limitations of those who fear them and by not alienating those whom we would persuade to accept dogs more.

How To Avoid Polluting Your Local Streams and Marine Life When Power Washing Around the House (and Avoid Getting Fined)

Most people don’t realize that washing your car and letting all the waste water go down your local storm drain is not legal and you can be fined for doing so. How is this possible since 90% of people wash their cars in their driveways? The simple answer is the written law is only enforced if the offender is like a big car wash business and they don’t have a sani-sewer to collect the wastewater. Us at home washing our cars without the proper permit are simply left alone. Think of it as a similar situation to jaywalking – unless you do it on a dangerous with a cop right there watching you you’re okay.

In this post you will learn the actual rules regarding power wash discharge and essentially all the rules regarding letting the wastewater go down the street drain. Keep in mind, that street drain in most areas is a direct line to your local creek or lake. And that creek and lake supports marine life.

What are the rules?

Think about it: if you’re power cleaning your oily dirty concrete driveway and just pushing all that discharge towards the drain you’re also pushing all the oily waste into the storm drain. This is not compliant with the Clean Water Act and enforceable by 5 figure fines. The Clean Water Act is the Environmental Protection Agency rule that deals with water in the USA. It states when and how you are allowed to “pollute” your communities local area. The gist is that you need a permit or that you need to live an area where that street drain first is feed into a sani-sewer that cleans the water before releasing it.

How To Prevent Getting Fined

Like I said the fines are steep and although you never hear about these fines issued to people just for washing their cars out the front of their house they are issued to larger businesses who don’t comply. There have been instances of companies fined upper 5 figures and having to declare bankruptcy just to deal with the fines. But in the end it was their fault for not complying. So how do you comply? How do you avoid getting fined and still keep your car clean? Let’s take a look in the next section.

How To Prevent Water Going Down The Drain When Pressure Cleaning

Option 1: The easiest way to prevent the problem before it occurs is to not let the water go down the storm drain. This is accomplished by sandbagging off the drain and the letting all the water evaporated before vacuuming up the waste solids.
Option 2: A more expensive but less time consuming method is to have a suction hose connected to your pressure washer surface cleaner that sucks the water through the hose to a mini sanitary system on the back of your truck that either cleans the water or just stores it for disposal at the correct location. You find some of the required information on the attachments and other methods at this pressure washer blog.

Option 3: Akin to not letting the wastewater down the drain this method involves making sure all the water discharges to landscaping. So if we’re talking washing your car – wash it on the grass lawn. If we’re talking pressure cleaning your driveway – push all the water to the garden and lawn. The landscaping filters the waste and it never is able to pollute your local waterway.


The Clean Water Act is their to protect your local water sources and marine life. When you pollute these you are damaging your town and so you must abide by the rules. Be a good neighbor and inform your local friends and community of this.

How Farmer’s Markets Can Help Improve a Community

Farmer’s markets, showcasing their ability to remain self-sufficient, are the foundation to rural communities. Local communities benefit from local farmers since they buy goods from local stores and offer employment, which in turn supports the local community. In this scenario, everybody wins. I can not tell you how many times I’ve been out with my friend suzy (who runs and we have seen many people she knows from the food industry. We’ve seen chefs, sous chefs, and personal chefs shopping for their cooking for the weekor for new ingredients to try in future meals.

Typically within one day of being harvested, produce that are locally made are fresher and taste better compared to chemically-altered foods that have been shipped for an extended period of time. A community can do their part to ensure local farms will remain for the next generation while offering nourishing and abundant food.

Here’s how a farmer’s market today can help improve a community:

  • It financially benefits both farmers and the community

    Nowadays, farmers receive less than the retail food value. When a farmer’s market sell directly to the consumer, no middleman is involved, thus giving more profit for farmers. Farmers then circulate their profits within the community with local merchants. This creates a cycle that aids in building a strong local economy.

  • It reduces the chances of farmers to sell their land for development

    The agriculture landscape will last longer as long as farmers are around. Family-operated farms that have been managed properly value resources offered by healthy soil and clean water. Cover crops are specifically grown to curb erosion, replace lost nutrients, and take in emissions. A plethora of wildlife species are well-suited in the patchwork of farm fields, ponds, and hedgerows. This actually benefits the environment.

  • It ensures fresh, healthier, and better-tasting food

    Latest studies show that fresh produce tend to lose nutrients a lot quickly. Produce that are bought in any local farmer’s market within a day or two offers flavorful and crispy food. Consuming locally-grown food makes your community and family strong. Food shipped for long distances are made for longer shelf life, not for taste.

  • It protects genetic diversity

    There’s very little genetic diversity in grown produce that meet today’s commercial standards. Only variants that can handle long distance, shipping, and long shelf life are picked. Therefore, only a few vegetable and fruit variants can meet such demands. But on the other hand, local farmers can create produce variants, some of which are heirlooms being passed down from one generation to the next due to their good taste.

  • It protects the local environment

    Local food doesn’t require long travel. This is a good thing since it minimizes carbon dioxide emissions and packing materials. Purchasing food from a farmer’s market makes farming more profitable and discourages selling farm land for development.

  • It safeguards the community’s health

    Knowing where the food that you eat comes from and how it’s grown allows you to make safe food choices. For the most part, a farmer’s market is trustworthy since all of the food sold are safe and free from harmful chemicals.

Wing Chun is a Good Way of Teaching Kids Discipline

Kids can be rowdy at the best of times. There are a lot of things that can be done to keep them in line, however, a lot of these things may not be within the jurisdiction of a school, or even a community. The main principle which works out to keep kids out of trouble is to keep them occupied. In agricultural areas, this is not hard to do. There are a lot of things that a kid can do outdoors without the parents worrying about them. In urban areas, community centers have a hard time keeping up with children in their neighborhood. Lately, novel ways have been tried as after school activities for kids of every age.

Along with sports, martial arts, and dance, there are some non-traditional approaches which have been tried. Among these are tai-chi, wall climbing, and exercises using the wing chun dummy. According to the site, the use of the wing chun dummy is interesting in itself. First of all, it is not a fairly common martial arts device. For another, it is not a punching bag or a dummy. In the market are a lot of punching bags and other devices which aid in kicks, punches and lunges. These come in the form of heavy bags, speed bags, kickboxing dummies, and others of the sort. Unlike these other martial arts aides, the wing chun dummy is not meant to be punched or kicked.

It is NOT a form of violence

Although it is sturdy enough to handle rugged use, including punches and kicks, the Wing Chun dummy is primarily designed as an aid to teach proper form. What is interesting is that kids would be playing around with it with minimal instruction. They won’t hurt themselves, because they are not supposed to be punching. Instead, wing chun exercises would teach the children how the hands and arms would move around the stationary device. The pegs or arms are there to guide the hand and arm movements. Instructors need only to show the basic stance, and the movements and let the kids work out with the dummy on their own. Another interesting thing about this is that kids don’t need to spend more than 30 minutes a day working out on the dummy. Even as little as ten minutes a day can be a great help to teach proper martial arts forms. The arm and hand muscles, as well as the hips, and legs would learn the movements and commit them to memory.

How does the Wing Chun Wooden Dummy Help?

There are several benefits to the Wing Chun dummy. First off, these are designed to be passive devices. They just stand there and the only movement these do is the flexing when in use. Planted squarely in place, these do not bounce back and cannot hurt anyone. For another, since the kids are not supposed to be punching the device, they would not hurt their hands. Since the kids do not exercise punches, the movements teach defensive stances without the need of a human partner. There is no need for constant supervision when a child works out with a wing chun dummy.

When Should Kids Use the Dummy

While working out with a wing chun dummy, the exercises teach accuracy, discipline, as well as restraint. Unlike boxing, this form of martial art does not focus on the power or intensity of the punch. More often than not, restraint and defense are the key lessons when training with the dummy. The important value or lesson is not to inflict the most harm on the other person (in case of a fight), rather to disarm the opponent (if he has one), and to defend oneself from blows and punches. The beauty of this form of martial artis is that it is strong and effective but does not seek to cripple the other opponent.

It also helps children center and focus their energies (sometimes, even intense emotions) and help them calm down after practice. Check out It is a useful site where Wing Chun afecionados share information and their experiences about the art. They post interesting interviews with other well-known Wing Chun enthusiasts and techniques that can help you improve.

Taking Part in Community’s Health Improvement

A great number of factors influence health and well-being in a community. There are various entities and individuals in the community have a role to play in responding to the health needs of the community. The committee sees a requirement and a qualification for a framework within the community that can take a complete and comprehensive approach to maintaining and improving health. One approach is assessing the health needs of the community to take part in getting information and baseline data. Secondly, determining its resources and assets for promoting health is essential to know where to get equipment in providing emergency care. Another is developing and implementing a strategy for action in helping the community achieve health needs. Also, establishing where responsibility should lie for concrete results is another significant point needed by the community.

In this article, it describes the right process for community health improvement. It provides a framework or structure to specify the needs to promote health. Crucial to this process is the performance that monitors activities to ensure that appropriate steps are being taken by responsible groups and that those actions are having the intended impact on health in the community. It also includes a discussion of a communication system needed to support performance monitoring and health improvement activities. An excellent way to monitor the performance of health improvements is through communicating the results through a Virtual PBX.

To develop a program for improving health, each community will have to consider its specific circumstances. It includes factors such as resources, health concerns, capacities, social and political perspectives, and the needs to compete. The committee cannot choose what actions a community should take to address its health concerns or who should be responsible for what. However, every community believes that communities need to open up these issues. It should have a system in different approaches to health improvement that makes utilization of performance monitoring these tools that will help them achieve their goals.

Proposal for Health Improvement

Every committee is obliged to make different plans in the community for health improvements. It is a process as a basis for responsible community in collaboration with various officers to provide right monitoring on overall health matters. It allowed the community to address specific health issues for implementing actions to take. The process can support the development of shared community objectives to improve health. Also, the actual implementation of a planned and integrated approach to achieving those goals will be addressed.

The community would operate through the two primary interacting cycles. Both of these will rely on the analysis, action, and measurement of the operation. One way to make this operation successful is to have specific small business phone systems for the community to utilize. The community can just gather information for them to analyze and make plans of action in supporting health needs. An excellent process for health improvement should be taken seriously. It is the best way to make proper analysis and plans for the implementation of actions in providing health care to the community.

Organize an Eco-friendly Archery Tournament

Since archery is becoming popular, you can create a tournament and raise environmental awareness too.

Archery has become a lot more popular these days. Thanks to Hunger Games and how archery is portrayed in the film and it caught the interest of many people. In fact, there are a lot of people who have started with the basics of archery. This is a good thing though as archery provides tons of benefits. Those who have tried archery will not just be more physically fit, but will also become more mentally prepared for challenges. Archery requires mental preparedness and focus to hit the target. Thus, it is definitely worth the try.

Archery tournaments

With the surge in the number of people interested in playing archery, more tournaments are organized these days. The tournament is divided into different categories. It includes the professional, advanced and newbie category. As long as there is something for everyone, then people will surely register for the tournament. Add to that the exciting prizes they could possibly get should they win it. If this is a tournament for a cause, then more people will even support it. If they know that the money for registering or for watching will go to certain charity organizations, then it is easier for them to decide to participate.

Making it eco-friendly

If you have already gathered a huge number of supporters for the tournament, the next thing to do is to plan the details. You have to organize the schedule and invite sponsors too. If there are places where archery can be done in the local area, then it is good. If not, you can just set it up. There are experts who can do it any time needed.

To make it more eco-friendly, the first thing that you need to do is to place garbage bags around the area. This will make people avoid throwing away stuff everywhere. This is usually the problem with big activities. They end up being so messy. However, if people know where to throw their garbage, then they will be more responsible. Of course, announcements have to be made as well so that people are informed.

Another way to make it eco-friendly is to support bow makers who use indigenous materials. They should also maintain environment-friendly processes in creating the bow. If you want to know more about the best recurve bow, then check out Take A Bow and Arrow. This company assures you that they will provide only the best.

To top it all, you have to make environmental awareness announcement throughout the tournament. You can also place posters around the area to provide people with more information. It also helps that the proceeds of this event will go to environment related causes.

A huge success

Aside from the number of participants joining this tournament or the amount of money you have raised, this can also be considered a huge success if you have raised awareness and told more people about how to help the environment. For sure, you will be encouraged to do the same activity in the future.

The Government vs The Supplement Industry

Let’s be honest for a minute. From what I know, nobody with any common sense really believes that a (majority of) politicians actually know what they are doing. At worst, they just do things that they believe will get them votes. This is definitely the case when it comes to supplements and the government’s ever growing involvement in trying to regulate them. Most people think their involvement is based in actually trying to do the right thing, especially when it comes to protecting our children from potentially harmful supplements. But the old saying “The road to hell is paved with good intentions” comes to mind when I think of the government attempting to regulate something they have no idea about.

Most politicians don’t know the first thing about supplements. What they do know is that if there is an opportunity to have a successful platform that protects innocent children, they will take it. So what they have to do is look to so-called “experts” in the industry to fill in the gaps in their knowledge about supplements. That’s the first problem in this equation because depending on which “expert” you talk with, you will either come away with the impression that all supplements are going to kill you, or all supplements serve a purpose and are perfectly healthy in the correct dosages. The truth, however, is usually somewhere in the middle, but that doesn’t always sway the voters. So these politicians go with the “expert” that is warning these supplements will kill you (even though millions of people who are using the supplements aren’t dropping like flies). Scare tactics are more effective in promoting change, it seems.

I spoke with Dallas Mitchell, who runs the supplement information website The Muscle Review, and asked him his thoughts on the subject. He brought up some great points, with the best one being the link between steroids and supplements. When I asked him if he trusted the government to do the right thing when it comes to regulating supplements, he said “When you talk about supplements, people immediately start thinking of steroids. Since steroids are bad, then supplements must be bad too. That’s simply not the case.” He went on to say, “Testosterone boosters are always a target for new regulations but what does the government know about what makes the best test booster on the market safe and what makes it dangerous? I’m all for getting the dangerous supplements off the market, but there is no consensus about which supplements are bad and which are good”.

Dallas brings up some other good points and more reasons why the government should probably stay out of regulating supplements until they do their due diligence and hear legitimate testimony from both sides of the argument. It’s a touchy subject, especially when you start talking about protecting children, but there are many things out there that are safe for an adult but unsafe for kids. I believe some supplements fit that category as well. I’m not advocating that the government just let supplement companies run wild, but they also need to be more careful and do their homework about what they are really trying to regulate. These regulations can cripple an entire industry and bring a weak economy down even further if they hit the industry too hard.

Organize a Christmas Party for Your Constituents

Make your stay as an elected official more meaningful by organizing a Christmas party.

Being a politician is not easy. Given the image of several politicians all over the world, people will surely have this notion that when you are in politics, you are either corrupt or you just don’t care. Thus, you need to make them feel that you are doing something. The people need to realize that you are a leader who cares. Yes, you can go on with your usual projects related to infrastructure, education and communication. However, you should also spend some time, money and effort to do activities that your people will remember for the rest of their lives.

Organize a Christmas party

Christmas is the time of the year when people are in a very festive mood. Whether they have a lot to give or they also lack money, they always find ways to celebrate. Thus, you need to make the most out of it. You need to make them feel that you are on with them in joyous celebration. The best way to do it is to organize a Christmas party. You can invite all of your constituents to the community part or a local gym to gather. You can prepare some games and prizes for them. You can also prepare performances from local officials or from local celebrities. This is just one night, but this is something that they will never forget. You might be out of sight most of the times. However, for a night, they can feel like they are with you. Thus, it is worth every effort.

Don’t forget the details

To make this party more memorable, you need to be keen of the details. Make sure that you don’t miss on anything. If there are local Christmas activities that have been practiced for years, then do it. For the meals, make sure that you use local ingredients and prioritize local dishes. To top it all, there should be a real party. There must be performers and people can dance along. To top it all, you need a snow machine! This will make everyone feel like it’s really Christmas. Of course, they can’t have a snow party outdoors because it will be very cold. However, you can bring snow indoors through this machine. This snow machine works with the help of an air compressor which you can easily buy.

If you can the best air compressor, check out viair 00073 70p. You can also try a good air compressor for parties, which is the best portable air compressor. By then, everyone will have fun like there is no tomorrow.

Not about politics

People might think that you are organizing this event because you are campaigning. Thus, you need to be careful not to appear that way. You have to appear really sincere. You need to let them know that there is no motive for doing what you are doing. It is just a day for fun and for everyone to gather like a real community. Whether they will reelect you or not, it doesn’t matter. The point is that you make them happy during Christmas.
