Here are a few job hunting strategies for people over 45
Stay focused, the last thing you should be doing is withdrawing into your shell. One candidate of mine has this routine. Get up in the morning and get out of the apartment. He does this because he knows that if he stays in bed for an hour longer than normal, he will have problems getting out of bed, and out of the home. He will feel miserable and be unproductive the entire day.
Eye contact creates an emotional bond between you and your audience. It signifies trust and confidence. One of the best ways to achieve rapport and engage people quickly and easily is to look at them. Distribute your attention around the room evenly! In a seated presentation or with small groups make sure you don’t miss the people sitting immediately to your left or right. With large audiences, you need to make it obvious that you’re shifting your gaze by moving your head too. Some presenters follow a ‘W¡¯ shape, starting at the rear left moving to the front, out to the centre back, return to the front and ending at the right back. Repeat this throughout the presentation. Others pick out small groups in different areas of the room. They shift their gaze from one group to another. Aim to give the impression you’re talking to each person personally.
If you decide you do need a script for a particular occasion, where do you start? One option is obviously to write it yourself. If you’re experienced in putting your thoughts down on paper you should have no trouble pulling together a workable script. It’s much like writing a report or a proposal.
The main difference is that you need to write as you speak. If you draft your speech ‘correctly’, as you would a formal piece of Writing, you’ll come across as stuffy and lacking in personality. Following these simple ‘rules’ will help make it sound more natural: Continue reading
Made a movie? Time to advertise it! What better way than with a trailer?
It’s easy to make a short film with iMovie, but it’s also a cinch to create a trailer with it as well. Why make a trailer? It’s a great way to announce your movie, or better still, advertise a whole series that you may have just uploaded to your YouTube channel.
Trailers are designed to grab your attention. Their timing is often crucial, so the fact that iMovie does practically everything for you means you don’t have to worry about any of these intricacies: just choose your clips, add them to your project and you’re good to go.
When you choose a Trailer Project, you select the type you’re looking for from a handy menu and once you’ve done this, it’s a simple process of following the instructions given to you; iMovie asks you for specific types of shots, like a landscape, a group shot, a close-up of a particular person, and so on. You just need to find the right clip from your collection, add it in the right place, and you’re sorted – or if you want to be a little more adventurous, add whichever clip you want irrespective of the type requested, and see if that works for you. So launch iMovie, and let’s get started on your trailer.
The word “cancer” is something that not many women, if any at all, like to hear. Fortunately, though, there are many treatment options for women with breast cancer that can be used to stop the breast cancer or kill it altogether. In some cases, surgery may be required in order to get rid of the breast cancer. The treatment for breast cancer that’s used in any particular situation, however, largely depends on the individual and the physician, though, as well as the stage that the breast cancer has progressed to in the women. Nevertheless, there are four basic overall options for treatment for a woman with breast cancer, and chances are that if you know someone who has had breast cancer or still has it then they have had to undergo one of these treatment options that will be discussed.
Hormone Therapy Treatment for Breast Cancer
One treatment for breast cancer that’s always an option is hormone therapy. In one way or another, hormone therapy acts on the cancer in the breast by stopping its spreading or blocking the action of a hormone altogether. A couple examples of hormone treatments for breast cancer include tamoxifen, estrogen, and hormone treatments that use aromatase inhibitors. Aromatase actually increases the amount of women’s estrogen that is produced; therefore, using an inhibitor on that specific enzyme blocks the production of estrogen. The aromatase inhibitor would be used as a treatment for breast cancer in a woman whose cancer was hormone dependent.
Chemotherapy and Radiation
These two treatment options for breast cancer are oftentimes used in conjunction with each other, but the one main difference of these two treatments is how they affect the woman’s breast cancer. In radiation breast cancer treatments, a doctor prescribes either an external radiation or and internal radiation system that’s used to kill the breast cancer cells or stop them from spreading in the body. Perhaps the one type of radiation therapy that’s used that is most common for many people is when it’s used in the small box that is placed outside the body.
On the other hand, chemotherapy uses powerful cancer drugs in order to stop the cancer or diminish it altogether. This treatment for breast cancer is very different and it usually depends on the stage of breast cancer that a woman is in that dictates what type of chemotherapy is used, as well as what drug and dosage is given. Oftentimes a rigorous schedule of chemotherapy injections are used for a woman who is in later stages of her breast cancer, while other types of chemotherapy treatments are used for earlier stages of breast cancer.
Surgery Treatment for Breast Cancer
The one major treatment for breast cancer that many women opt for is the surgery option. The basic idea of this treatment for breast cancer is for the physician to remove the part of the breast that’s affected by the breast cancer, or to remove parts of the breast that are affected. The lumpectomy and mastectomy are the two basic types of breast cancer surgeries. In any case, getting the breast cancer to stop spreading and removing the cancer cells is the whole goal of surgery when it’s used as a treatment option for breast cancer.

Memories are more powerful when you can actually touch them
iPhoto and digital photography have revolutionised the way we handle our images. They’re no longer kept in shoeboxes or forgotten in undeveloped rolls, but are available on our computers, organised by day or event, and easily searchable. They also won’t fade with time, and if you have a good backup policy, you won’t accidentally lose all your precious memories if something terrible to happens to your hard drive. But there’s something to be said for holding those photos in your hand, rather than watching them on the screen. Even viewing them on an iPad or iPhone isn’t the same as a printed copy. You can of course use your printer for that, but iPhoto offers you another option that greatly improves the sharing experience; you can design books that also make fantastic gifts. Continue reading
