Beekeeper's Hat and Veil, Do Not Go Out for Beekeeping With Out It

Many people find that the beekeeper's hat is the most important part of a beekeeping protective gear. But, is that really the case? Than what is the importance of a veil? Is it less important than the hat? Well, to answer those questions lets have a closer look at both the hat and veil. Actually you can find many designs of a hat and veil. A hat or veil can be purchased as separate pieces but also as a combo of hat and veil. In most cases the offer is to buy the total set of a protective gear that includes a beekeeper jumpsuit, hat, veil and gloves.

It can be assumed that the hat is to protect the head, and the veil to protect the face and neck. It can also be assumed that the face and neck are the most critical parts...

The Nature Of Accounting Systems

An accounting system is a process whereby a specific output is produced by a given input. In an information accounting system, data is processed to provide information. Data is a collection of unprocessed facts, while information is data or facts that have been processed into a meaningful form. In the normal course of events, a business undertaking will enter into a large variety of transactions. The details of a particular transaction are referred to as transaction data. The term transaction data therefore refers to the facts that completely describe a specific transaction. The aim of an accounting system is to record the transaction data and then to process this data to provide information that is ultimately collected in the financial and management reports of the enterprise. There are two stages in the development of an accounting system, namely systems analysis and system design. A good accounting system must comply with at least the following fundamental requirements. The system must provide decision makers with timely and accurate information relevant to the responsibilities and requirements; the internal control measures must be adequate to ensure the protection of assets and the provision of reliable information and the system must be sufficiently flexible to accommodate changes in the volume of activities and in the operating procedures without requiring drastic modifications. A thorough knowledge of the activities of the undertaking and its information and...

Plus Size Ladies Clothes – How To Get It Right

Until recently plus size clothing equated to dreary looking ill fitting garments, (images of leggings and baggy t-shirts spring to mind). Thankfully retailers have now cottoned on to the large and ever increasing market of plus size ladies clothes and the variety available for women over size 16 is brilliant. Nowadays women of larger sizes now have as much access to trendy fashionable clothes as their slimmer counterparts. The question now is with so much to chose from – how do you know what clothes will suit your body shape? Most retailers, rather than designing clothes for different body shapes will produce the same item of clothing in sizes 6-32. Now it doesn’t take a genius to work out that what will look good on someone who is a size 8 may not necessarily look good on someone who is a size 32 and vice versa. This article will provide you with some top tips on how to shop for clothes that will enhance your figure and make you look even more beautiful than you already are! The first tip is how to slim your stomach which is the main problem area for most plus size ladies. You should: Never wear tight trouser or jeans (the muffin top look is never good)!

What Are the Steps in Writing a Literature Review?

What is a Literature Review? A literature review basically is the collating of a body of information derived from secondary sources such as books, newspapers, magazines and other appropriate sources. This information is content specific and usually revolves around a specific theme or issue. It represents a careful selection of ideas gleaned from other people's findings of a particular topic or set of topics deemed to be related in some way. Sources selected should be authoritative and be well written in good English and should shed light on the study to be undertaken. The main goal of the literature review is to set the tone for the rest of an academic paper as insights which can be made into the theoretical and methodological positions adopted by past researchers of a similar ilk. The use of subheadings can act as sign posts that guide the writer so that he / she keeps on track. Length of a Literature Review Students are regularly concerned about the length of the review. However, there are no hard rules about this. It all depends on the way the academic faculties within which students operate weigh it. It depends too on the specific details required to provide a comprehensive coverage of previous researches. In short there is no magic formula or algorithm here. Types of Literature Review Two well known styles of literature review exist:...

The 3 Cycles of Periodization: Macrocycles, Mesocycles and Microcycles

Periodization is the process of dividing an annual training plan into specific time blocks, where each block has a particular goal and provides your body with different types of stress. Some periods of training are harder and some are easier to allow for recovery. To develop an effective training program, it is important to understand the structure upon which periodized training plans are built. This structure consists of three cycles: macrocycles, mesocycles and microcycles. The macrocycle consists of the 52 weeks of your annual plan and therefore includes all four stages of a periodized training program (e.g., endurance, intensity, competition and recovery). Because of its length, you will certainly make changes to it throughout the year. Think of the macrocycle as a bird’s-eye view of your annual training plan. The mesocycle represents a specific block of training that is designed to accomplish a particular goal. For example, during the endurance phase, you might develop a mesocycle that is designed to enhance your muscular endurance (the ability to pedal relatively big gears at a moderate cadence). This mesocycle might consist of three weeks of strength training and big gear pedaling, and one week of recovery. Similarly, you could develop a mesocycle for the intensity phase that is designed to improve your functional threshold power (the highest average power you can sustain for one hour). This mesocycle might include three weeks...

The Importance of Philosophy in Hinduism

Indian has two important aspects-ritual and asceticism-and there is a third, namely, knowledge or philosophy. Its importance was recognized by the severest ritualists. They admitted it as a supplement and crown to the life of ceremonial observances and in the public estimation it came to be reputed an alternative or superior road to salvation. Respect and desire for knowledge are even more intimately a part of Hindu mentality than a proclarity to asceticism or ritual. The sacrifice itself must be understood as well as offered. He who knows the meaning of this or that observation obtains his desires. Nor did the Brahmins resent criticism and discussion. India has always loved theological argument: it is the national passion. The early Upanishads relate without disapproval how kings such as Ajâta [atru of Kâ [i, PravâhaGa Jaivali and A [vapati Kaikeya exposed to learned Brahmins philosophical and theological knowledge previously unknown to them and even women like Gârgî and Maitreyî took part in theological discussions. Clearly knowledge in the sense of philosophical speculation agreed itself to religiously disposed persons in the non-sacerdotal castes for the same reason as asceticism. Whatever difficulties it might offer, it was more accessible than the learning which could be accepted only under a Brahmin teacher, although the Brahmins in the interests of the sacerdotal caste maintained that philosophy like ritual was not secret to be imparted, not...

Convert Lumber Pricing From Per Thousand to Per Piece

It used to drive me crazy trying to figure out how to calculate prices per thousand and then convert it into per piece. It was so tedious and after awhile, just plain irritating. So I designed a quick little spreadsheet on Excel that would calculate the answer for me and I must use it at least a dozen times per day, if not more. Now that I’ve got a nice clientele, they are always asking me to convert pricing for them so I decided to do two things. Put up an interactive calculator on our website so that they can do it themselves AND write an article helping others that find themselves in the same boat. So let’s give an example and then how to convert it. You need a truckload of 2x4x8′. You phone around and get quotes on the material. The best quote is $250/M for 20 packages (294 pieces per package). What is that per piece? So how much is it for the whole load EXACTLY?!? Here’s the formula on how you calculate per piece. Step 1 – Get the board feet per piece. (See my other article – “Board Feet? How to Calculate”) Thickness X Width X Length / 144 (Make sure to change the 8 foot to 96 inches (8×12)) 2 X 4 X 96 / 144 = 5.33333 Step 2 – Take the...
