Planning to Relocate a Business

Planning to Relocate a Business

Moving your business can be an overwhelming task. There are so many factors that have to be considered, carefully thought out, and planned in excruciating detail.

The most important factor that can make or break your relocation deals with the timeliness and quality of communications that you will have with both your employees and your customers. The rumor mill travels at warp speed, so it’s very important that everyone has an accurate understanding of what will occur and how it will affect them.

Address the move as early as possible by conducting frequent meetings with your employees. Employees want to know whether or Brooklyn self-storage will impact their jobs and customers want the reassurance of continued excellent service.

It is necessary to figure out who will be in charge of the move. The smaller the committee is…the better your final results will be. Get as much cooperation as possible. Announce the move early on as preparation takes plenty of time…..dates for reviewing competitive bids must be set, flow charts prepared, diagrams and blueprints must be drawn up, deadlines must be set and met and a checklist is absolutely essential.

You’ve already decided that moving your business is the right thing to do, so now it’s time to start the planning process. Here is a list of items that should be addressed very early in the planning process. Each one can have extreme impact on your business and they can best be described as…

Liposuction FAQs

Will it make me slim?
It is only safe to remove a maximum of 4 lbs of fat in any liposuction operation, so it won’t make you slim unless you have quite a number of operations! There is also some evidence that whilst you won’t put weight on in the same place (the fat cells have been removed) you can still put weight on elsewhere and nearby, sometimes creating some strange shapes! Liposuction does not get rid of cellulite either, as the fat is removed from a deeper level. Liposuction works best on people who are slim with ‘pockets’ of fat they want to remove, so it is no real substitute for diet and exercise.

What are the risks?
Some of the risks are the normal risks associated with surgical operations. These include infections, blood poisoning and complications from the anaesthetic. The other potential risks are:

  • Removing too much fat can lead to major complication, including heart disease and even death;
  • The tubes used (called cannulas) are thin but can still cause damage if not used carefully;
  • Damage to nerve endings can cause skin numbness for months or in rare cases even permanently;
  • The bleeding and bruising can cause anaemia;
  • If the fat is not removed carefully and uniformly by an experienced surgeon, the fat left can cause a permanent lumpy and uneven shape;
  • Skin tones can change for up to 6 months and if fluid isn’t drained properly, skin can pucker or go puffy, sometimes permanently.

How much will it cost?
This depends on the extent of the liposuction and the area of the body involved. Expect to pay between �2,000 and �3,000 per operation.

I still want to go ahead, what should I do?
It is essential you find good, experienced back doctors in Edison to reduce the risks and maximise the chances of a good result.

Digital imaging is rapidly becoming an art form in it’s own right. A form distinct from photography, painting, or any other established media. Through the use of Adobe Photoshop®, artists find themselves freed from the camera, able to delve into their own mind, and bring disparate images and objects together to create fantasies of their own creation. Although much of what is accomplished can also be done by traditional photographic means, Photoshop® facilitates the movement, placement, and blending of objects, freeing the artist to do what artists have always dreamed of doing – create.

Maggie Taylor began her career as a photographer by making still lifes with a 4×5″ view camera. In 1995 she began using the computer as a retouching tool for her images, scanning her 4×5 negatives. When she realized she could place objects right on the scanner and not deal with film, camera, or darkroom chemistry, she fell in love with the idea. Except for an occasional digital capture of elements that prove difficult to scan, Maggie has almost completely stopped using a camera.

About 10% of her work is spent creating commercial book covers or images for music CD’s. The other 90% is fine art. She likes to give her fine art images general titles, so they mean different things to different viewers. They are meant to evoke a little “daydream” or “private” moment that is unique to each viewer.

Maggie says she is compelled to make new images all the time. “Making images for me is a way of life. I can’t imagine not doing it . . . I guess in terms of what motivates me, the best answer would be, if I don’t make images I’m unhappy.”

She begins by collecting items at flea markets, trade show photo booth rental, garage sales and on E-bayTM. She particularly likes to collect photographs from the 19th century, especially tintypes and ambrotypes. In addition she collects old toys and objects ­ things that have a sense of history and presence. She prefers antique shows or flea markets to E-bayTM because she often doesn’t know, until she holds an object in her hand, if it will work well for an image.

She scans her collected objects on a flat bed scanner ­ usually with the lid of the scanner open. Once they are scanned she starts constructing an image. Working intuitively, she approaches the image without preconceptions. Starting with one or two objects, or an old photograph, she usually has only a lose idea of how they might work together; but things change and start to come together when she’s working in Photoshop®, putting things together then taking them apart again, making as many as forty different layers in an image and sometimes more, watching how things interact with each other.

The Facts About Fruit!

How Nutritious Is Fruit?
Fruit is great for you. Fruit is an important source of vitamin C, folic acid, beta carotene, potassium, and magnesium. All that nutrition means that your bones, blood, skin and eyes will all be healthier if you eat enough fruit. They also provide a useful source of fibre. The most nutritious fruit is the kiwi fruit. They contain two thirds more vitamin C then oranges as well as vitamin E, potassium, magnesium, fibre and antioxidants.

How Well Do They Keep?
Heat, water and the air destroy some of the vitamins in fruit. They are especially vulnerable when cut open, so make sure you keep the fruit salad refrigerated and in a sealed container.

Won’t The Sugar In Fruit Lead To Cravings?
Not necessarily. Some fruits have low glycaemia indexes, which means that the sugars are released slowly into the blood. This will actually suppress your appetite rather than cause cravings. Low glycaemia fruits include cherries, grapefruit, grapes, oranges, kiwi fruits, plums, peaches, apples and pears.

Are Some Fruits High In Fats Or Calories?
Nearly all fruits are very low in fat and so provide only small amounts of calories. In fact, filling yourself up on fruits will not increase your calorie intake and will substantially improve your health. It will also reduce cravings for sweet foods which are high in calories. Even black olives have only 3 calories each. The only fruit which you should limit yourself on are avocados. Although they are extremely good for you, an average avocado contains 20 grams of fat and 275 calories. You should also be careful about the amount of dried fruit you eat. Fresh or tinned apricots have around 30 calories for 100 grams (about 4 oz), while the same amount of dried apricots would contain over 150 calories. However, dried fruit often has a more concentrated level of nutrition, so it is still good to eat dried fruit in moderation.

Are Frozen, Tinned And Dried Fruits As Good As Fresh?
Fresh, raw fruit usually contain the highest natural amount of vitamins, especially vitamin C. However, the older the fruit, the greater the level of reduction in these vitamins. Dried fruit does not contain as high a level of vitamin C, but it can actually have higher levels of iron, fibre, potassium, and magnesium. Frozen fruits can provide better nutrition in some cases than older raw fruit as they are generally frozen within hours of being picked. Tinned or canned fruit may be lower in nutrients, although added fruit juice can actually increase the levels of vitamin C. However, it is still very good for you, and will still count towards your 5 portions a day target.

Could a virus be causing your weight gain?

Imagine if you could catch obesity like you can catch flu or a cold. It would mean that no matter how much exercise you did, or how closely you watched your diet even with help from a Connecticut infrared sauna, you could start to gain weight and be completely powerless to stop it.

Sound Farfetched. We thought so at first too, but remember that just a few years ago the idea that bacteria could be the cause of stomach ulcers would have been laughed at too. And the facts are more persuasive than you might think. Some 23% of adult Americans are classed as obese with a body mass index of over 30 and many obesity experts feel that this rise in obesity from 15% in 1980 cannot fully be explained by dietary and lifestyle changes alone.

In 1998, an Asian doctor named Hikhil Dhurandhar discovered a strain of a virus named SMAM-1 caused chickens to gain almost 50% more fat than chickens not exposed to the virus. The chickens also had lower cholesterol levels. Dhurandhar was interested enough to test the blood of 52 of his most overweight patients and discovered that 10 out of the 52 patients had SMAM-1 antibodies in their blood meaning that they had been exposed to the virus. These 10 patients were the heaviest and they also had lower cholesterol levels, than the other patients.

Other obesity researchers had already identified three other viruses that caused obesity in animals, usually by damaging the part of the brain that regulates appetite. Dhurandhar begin researching other viruses affecting humans, including a virus that caused diarrhoea, Ad-36. When chickens were injected with the virus, they gained weight and reduced cholesterol. The effect was the same with mice. Even more surprising, monkeys infected with the virus gained three times as much weight over a 6-month period than monkeys not infected.
