The Benefits of Using a DSLR Rig

The first benefit of a DSLR rig is an obvious one. It will improve the ergonomics of your camera. Digital single lens reflex cameras are still designed, primarily, with the stills photographer in mind. For someone shooting video, handles and increased points of contact are essential to provide a comfortable shooting position and increased stabilization – especially when filming for long periods of time. Adding a DSLR rig to your camera will provide you with multiple handles and grips allowing you to hold the camera in different positions comfortably. Some DSLR Rigs come with a shoulder mount which will further increase stabilization.

The second benefit of a rig is that it will provide a level of protection for you camera. As a videographer your camera is your main source of income. It is the most important piece of your kit. Protecting it should be a priority. A high quality rig will provide a decent level of protection, were your camera accidentally to be knocked over. This is because most DSLR rigs are made from aluminum or high density plastics that extend far beyond the dimensions of the camera. Like a roll cage in a racing car protects the driver in a collision so too does a rig when your camera takes an unexpected knock.

The third benefit of making use of a DSLR rig is that it provides you with a platform for adding industry standard accessories. Like in all industries, there are always standards that help to simplify the trade. In the film industry the standard has always been a simple device consisting of two rods 15mm in diameter, 60mm apart. This provides you with a base to which you can add accessories, transforming your camera from a consumer luxury into a film making workhorse.

Fourthly, a DSLR rig will allow you to obtain shots never before possible. When the DSLR film making boom first started, most rigs were limited to rod supports, camera cages and perhaps a few handles. These days, the number of new accessories hitting the market every month is endless – and they are not just limited to ergonomic accessories. In recent years the market has been flooded with pieces of equipment focused more on dynamic image acquisition than just stabilization and comfort. Camera sliders, jibs, remote pan tilt heads and hand-held camera stabilizers are just a few of the rigs designed to provide unique and aesthetically pleasing camera movement to your shots. Never before have ordinary hobbyist and small business videographers been able to achieve such amazing footage on such a small budget as today.

Finally, a DSLR rig will give your company or studio a more professional image. Unfortunately the videography industry is an industry of perceptions. Your clients will arrive with certain perceptions of what you and your equipment should look like. If you or your gear don’t meet those perceptions, it could result in them doubting your ability and expertise, or worst case scenario, choosing a different service provider. A DSLR rig will give your camera a more professional appearance. In the competitive industry that videography has become first impressions carry more weight than ever before. Looking the part has become almost as important as fulfilling the part. A good, high quality rig will definitely increase your appeal amongst your clients.

Am I an "Old Maid?"

Am I an “Old Maid”? If this is a question you are asking yourself than there are some important things you should know first. Historically, an “Old Maid” is someone that is alone, shy, unsocial able, and shows no signs of changing that. People that usually fit this profile are not always happy with that they want to change; this is because they do not know how or are scared to try. This usually leads to unhealthy living habits, such as obesity, loneliness, obsession, and are easily lured into situations by people that take advantage of them.

One way to avoid being an “Old Maid” is to be around people in social settings. No one says you cannot be alone and independent, but you should communicate with other people to keep current and avoid being lonely. The more you stay up to date without becoming someone your not will help you find someone that will fulfill you in every way. Everyone wants to fall in love, but you cannot accomplish this without getting out there and meeting people. Just finding someone to talk to besides yourself is important not only for you but your sanity.

A second way to avoid being an “Old Maid” is to try and be the one to initiate social situations and not be scared of what people think or say. Some people avoid doing this because it puts them in an awkward position. Being awkward and feeling awkward are two different things, sometimes thinking too much will only convince you not to do it. Even going to the store can be a way to learn how to talk to people because they are being paid to be nice to you. It doesn’t matter whether they really want to or not.

A third way to avoid being an “Old Maid” is to find people that have the same interests as you. For instance, if one of your hobbies is baking pastries, take a pastry class. You do not have to change who you are in order to change your life for the better. No one wants to be alone, whether you have one good best friend or have found love you want to be happy and the only way to accomplish this is to not be alone all the time. Everyone needs a little me time, but sometimes it can be unhealthy.

Finally, to avoid being an “Old Maid” shouldn’t be what is driving you to try these things. Enjoy life; be happy with who you are and learn to love yourself and except yourself for who you are. Once you’ve convinced yourself of that than it will be easier for other people to see it to. This will make it easier for you to meet new people and hopefully find someone you can enjoy your likes with together. You are never too old to change, and every day should be lived to the fullest. The smallest changes in your life can make all the difference and avoid being an “Old Maid” forever.

Multigenerational Homes – Pros and Cons

Do you live in a home with your children and your mother and father? For some cultures this is a very usual way of living and in Canada it is becoming more common among every culture. As with all things, multiple generations living under one roof will have positive and also negative points. I want to show you a few of them in this article. If you have already left your parents and are thinking of moving back, for whatever reason, this article may also help you make that decision.

Let’s start by looking at the positive side.

  • it may make better economic sense. If the property is very large, with a floor for each family, then this may not occur.
  • you are living with your complete family surrounding you. A cosy family feeling with positive, close relationships is another benefit.
  • if there are younger children in the house, then there is no need for babysitters, as they is normally going to be at least one family member around. The older generations are able to support or advise the younger generations, especially with regard to bringing up a youngster.
  • the older generations may have health matters, therefore the younger members of the property can support them to living independently as much as possible. Assisting each other is the big benefit of living together, think about coming home from a long day at work and someone has prepared a meal for you.
  • the older generation can feel by themselves, primarily if they are housebound or have lost their life partner. Living with their children and grandchildren could help combat these feelings, as they will always have someone in close proximity that they can call on.

So what are the not-so-good points?

  • some of you might feel like they have no real private space, like they are never really alone.
  • parents and grandparents could feel that you are interfering in their lives, or you may feel that they are interfering in yours all the time.
  • how you bring up your kids could also create issues, with other family members ignoring what you want for the child.
  • a very close relationship between children and their parents may not always be a good thing (women normally hate to be compared to the mother of their partner – eg “nobody can cook like my mom”).
  • having to adjust to and having to respect the requirements and wishes of other age groups (sometimes they may be surprisingly different). Of course, it is inevitable to live in a home, which is capable of accommodating more family members Forest Hill houses is ideal for this.

It is very hard to give all the universal good and bad areas with regard to multiple generations living under one roof – it all depends on the relationships between family members and laying down clear rules right from the beginning. Put your point of view forward, don’t tell people what you believe they want to hear, be open. Just because someone else in the family wants to do this, that doesn’t always mean you do, so don’t be persuaded into it. When all said and done, if you are a bit miserable person, then other individuals are going to feel that, which makes for a very tense home and relationships could break down.

When You Need to Wear a Suit Jacket

The world of business is becoming more casual and informal. The formal, stiff, two or three button suit is going out of fashion for all but the more conservative professions and organisations and even those are loosening up. The power suit can date a woman and give the impression of stuck-in-the-past thinking and attitudes.

So the question comes up! What do you wear when you are speaking, being a Master of Ceremonies, receiving an award or attending a more formal networking event? A jacket is called for but what do you choose so that you look like a modern 21st century woman.

Here are my three pieces of fashion advice for Baby Boomer and over 40 professional or business women. Let us apply some modern dressing skills to the formal suit jacket.

Add a Belt over Your Jacket

This is a simple solution for those classic suit jackets that are still in your wardrobe.

Stop worrying that your waist has expanded over the years. Wear your belt comfortable but not tight.

It is your choice whether you wear a narrow, medium or wide belt. The only way to find out which looks best on you is to experiment. Try it in privacy at home or wear the suit jacket to a store and try on different belt widths in the privacy of a change room.

The second consideration is whether to wear a matching or contrasting colour. The best coloured belts for classic suit jackets are black, brown or beige. Red belts are for extroverts.

You can also wear a narrow black belt over a patterned, frilled-neck formal jacket. This allows you to be formal while still retaining your femininity.

Modern Jacket Closures

If you are looking for a new modern suit or a versatile modern jacket, look at a jacket that has a hook and eye closure at the waist. This keeps the formal look with a modern edge. A rounded or pointed hemline also keeps the jacket from looking dated.

An alternative to a waistline hook and eye is a jacket with a zip closure that goes from collar to waist. It can be centred or slightly off-centre. Off-centre zips look better on modern collar styles.

A third alternative is a half-revere collared jacket with an odd number of closely placed button and loop closures that come to the waist only.

All three styles create a smooth slimming colour across your upper body. They are modern because they all meet in the middle rather than having one side fold over the other.

Soft Fold Jackets

Buttonless, draping jackets are today’s modern classic style. For occasions when a suit jacket is required, buy one in a thicker weave material. Also choose ones that create a lapel effect. The lapel can start at the neckline or from just below the collarbone.

It is your choice whether the edges meet, are slightly apart or drape down your princess line. Go for whatever looks best on you.

Choose a hem shape that flatters you – either straight or angled. A good fashion tip is that angled hems makes your hips look smaller. Keep the length to a normal suit jacket length – wrist length if you are petite or medium height; fingertip length if you are tall.

Last Words

The modern suit jacket can be worn over a dress or with a knee-length skirt or tapered pants. It is always handy to have one in the wardrobe for those important invitations. Use this Baby Boomer fashion advice and know you can choose a belt, a modern closure or soft folds. Out you go now and shine confidently.

The New Cougar Dating Trend

After 20+ years of formal international research on the topic of younger men dating older women, I am seeing the Cougar dating trend changing. I am excited to see the last barrier to male/female relationships finally being dissolved and seeking its own level toward permanence. There are still older women who want a boy toy or a no strings attached relationship. They may be permanently fed up with seeking something long term, don’t want to remarry and enjoy the freedom of having a friend with benefits where there is limited or no drama. And that’s fine. As I often say on my Cougar dating site,”There is a lid for every pot.” But what I am noticing and hearing from both men and women on my site is that the younger men who are not “thrill seekers” or inexperienced at Cougar dating and the women who have gained positive experiences dating younger men and do not want to go back to dating men their age or older are looking for something more long lasting, meaningful and, dare I say it? Permanent.

Yes, statistics from my site are showing that some 90% of women are looking for love and perhaps even marriage to a younger man. The BBC reported in a documentary that 25% of our neighbors across the pond are happily married to younger men. 30% of older women are open to and dating younger men in the United States. Although there are many newcomers to Cougar dating, 45% of women who have dated younger men before and don’t plan going back to dating men their age or older. I am finding that the older Cubs, primarily mature young men in their late 20’s to 30’s and older, are interested in long term relationships, especially if they have previously dated or been married to older women. The Boy Toys (which is what I call the ‘serial players’ tend to be men from ages 18 to mid and even late 20’s who are inexperienced with women, laboring under what I have termed “The Myth of Stiffler’s Mom”, or thrill seeking with as many women as they can get preyed upon by. Yes, Virginia, the 30 year old male virgins do exist, and many of them are looking for an older woman to show them the ropes. The interesting thing is, once they experience a well rounded relationship with an older woman, they are way less inclined to suffer through the immaturity, selfishness and lack of life experience of a girl their age or younger. This is when many Boy Toys convert to devotees of Cougar dating. As one young Cub from Atlanta told me, “I was not looking for love. I wanted to hunt as many Cougars as I could and just have fun. And then I met this wonderful woman from New York.” He is totally in love; and isn’t love grand? He went from wanting to work his way up the age ladder to falling head over heels with his Cougar woman. I just love when people find each other, and as I often say, “there is a lid for every pot.”

Since Cougar dating is becoming more mainstream in the United States, more and more women are coming out of the closet. I am seeing more women from the midwest and the southern states joining the site this year over last year, when the majority of members were from larger cities such as Los Angeles. The UK and Canada have historically been “out” and you’ll be hard pressed to find anyone who has not heard the term “Cougar”. Hate it or love it, it is here to stay so women are starting to embrace it and define it for themselves. It is losing its derogatory connotation and men are finding that there is no “one definition fits all” Cougar. As the myths of the leopard print wearing, female predator gives way to soccer moms, secretaries, bank tellers, attorneys, the every day woman replaces the adolescent male fantasy, and women are becoming more comfortable looking at men 7 years or more their junior and saying, “Why not?” And more and more younger men are telling me they are falling in love with their Cougar women.

Mainstreaming Cougar dating is leading to world wide acceptance of this cross generational dating trend; a trend which is here to stay. My members are coming out of the closet to their friends and family members. Actuaries will even agree that statistically speaking, it just makes sense for an older woman to meet, date, mate and marry a younger man. I spoke with a retired Harvard trained medical doctor recently who told me that biologically it made more sense for a woman in her sexual prime to date and marry a man in his sexual prime. The women enjoy being with a man who is attentive, affectionate, energetic, vital, protective, fun and has less baggage than his older male counterpart. The men love being with a woman who is nurturing, mature, has life perspective, knows what she wants, isn’t needy, insecure or shallow. The pots have found their lids. The lids have found their pots!

It is only a natural segue and an easy look into the Cougar crystal ball to see the obvious: There will be more long term Cougar and Cub relationships and marriages just around the corner. Thrill seekers, however, need not apply.

Teaching Supplies – Inviting More Senses Into the Classroom

Without the help of caring people such as teachers and parents, students may not be able to create a genuine interest in learning. Teaching is perhaps the most rewarding profession and having the right teacher supplies make the job easier and fun for learning. Children really can learn if they have the great school supplies, and innovative lesson plans.

The need of having the right teaching supplies is to enthrall students with learning experience. Every business has its own supplies and trade-specific tools to make the job easier for the individual. Teaching students with school supplies is no different. Teaching job can be done without the right teaching supplies, but it becomes all more complicated than it has to be.

When you consider everything, inviting more senses into your classroom is not really that difficult. Teaching Science, Math, English or almost any other subject can be well explained with right equipments and supplies. It is but natural, people learn better when they are involved in activities- so the more exciting activities you can involve your students with, the better is the possibility for them to create an example for upcoming generations doing the same.

Craft supplies are better option, especially for younger students. The more fun engaging craft supplies the lesser would be their complications. When a child is indulged in creative activity then his imagination is awakened and the educational experience is much higher than others. You can easily encourage creativity and education by using the appropriate craft supplies.

Musical supplies are also the better option to create a supportive and lively learning environment to the students they have always craved for. Teachers can reach younger students using songs for alphabet counting, learning colors and building vocabulary. There are wide range of CDs, Videos, and DVDs available in the market to bring out all the musical love and talent within each child.

Having some extra school supplies for teachers is always favorable as your students will not always be prepared with the right teaching supplies such as Mathematics supplies, Science projects supplies, Earth science supplies, Music Supplies, Craft Supplies, Scientific Education Supplies or English supplies. Therefore, all teachers should keep some basic teacher supplies in the classroom for various projects bursting during the year.

Finding teaching and classroom supplies is easy, but where to find quality supplies at lowest price is a million dollar question. Some basic supplies such as Mathematics or English supplies can be had at great prices but those looking for sophisticated items such as bulletin boards, educational toys and interactive play games require little more searching. An online school supplies for teachers will have the essentials for all your classrooms at huge discounts.

Although you may possess great skills in teaching others, you can still do certain things in an effort to maximize your work flow. You can take the advantage of teacher supplies to maximize your efficiency in your classroom. Also, last but not the least is the foundation of a genuinely meaningful relationship with your students. You must combine the essentials in abundance- compassion, love, patience and acceptance to ensure that your student is able to appreciate your help.

What Can We Do Now?

Yes we are still talking about them…every day 10,000 Baby Boomers turn age 60. The generation that has had all of the attention showered on it since the 1960’s are now turning 60. It is a simple demographic fact that the post World War II population boom has been the focus of media, marketing, Wall Street and main street because of the sheer number, 78 million plus.

With each passing day we realize that no other country is able to lead the world out of this downturn. It is clearly up to the USA, and it’s economy to find the way out. Politics aside, tax cuts, stimulus, I am not here to argue, my question is what can “we” do?

My call today is to all of the “Boomers” to whom so much has been given; a free country, peace in our time, highly educated and for most of us the opportunity to pursue “self actualization”. Now is the time to give back to our nation and our fellow citizens.

In your local community find a way to form support groups and reach out to those around you that have been impacted by this difficult economy. Churches, Synagogues and other houses of worship are a good place to begin. Many people turn to their house of worship in times of need. Recently, at our church we started an out reach group for people who are out of work, under employed or concerned about the future of their job and industry. This concept has been well received and we are seeking ways to help all participants. NPR Story. Find the way.

Many years ago John F. Kennedy said, “Ask not what your country can do for you, but what can you do for your country.” Now is the time to put those words into action.

Dangers of Reverse Mortgages – Top 3 Things to be Aware of

As the baby-boomers prepare for retirement reverse mortgages are going to be the next mortgage boom according to most analyst. The baby boom began in 1946 and continued through 1964. During those 19 years, 76 million people were born. As this segment of America begins to retire a large portion of them will need to rely on their homes equity to make “ends meet.” How they access that equity will be the mortgage industries primary focus in the years to come.

The traditional “forward” mortgage has the homeowner borrow the money by way of a traditional mortgage or home equity line and make payments on that amount. The homeowner takes the money, places it in a safe interest bearing account and uses the money to augment their income. The interest that is earned on the money is used to supplements the monthly payment that the homeowner has to make. The problem is that the interest shrinks as the money is used and the mortgage payments stay the same.

Reverse mortgages have actually been around since 1989, but their popularity is skyrocketing as a result of the wave of baby-boomers that are retiring. These mortgage products are safe and beneficial when applied to the right homeowner and circumstances. Lendfast.com recommends that borrowers use FHA-insured Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) when considering these mortgage products. Getting a reverse mortgage from the private sector may include more headaches and costs. However, as with financial product, there are some dangers that you need to be aware of; here are the top three reverse mortgage pitfalls to lookout for.

1) Repayment and Forfeiture – Most, if not all reverse mortgages will not require you to make payments or repay the loan for as long as you live. Once you pass on your heirs will have the opportunity to remortgage the debt or sell the house and repay the loan. If the home has equity above the amount owed to the bank your heirs will receive those proceeds. If the home is “upside down” your heirs have no obligation to repay the debt, but they will forfeit the home unless they pay the amount owed.

However FHA rules state: “When you sell your home or no longer use it for your primary residence, you or your estate will repay the cash you received from the reverse mortgage, plus interest and other fees, to the lender.” The danger here is “no longer use it for your primary residence. This means if you have to go to a hospice, nursing home or intend to live in another home and use the house as a second home the bank will call the debt due. This is definitely something you want to consider before taking out a reverse mortgage.

2) Cost and Interest Rates – At the inception of reverse mortgages they were almost exclusively offered with adjustable interest rates. Adjustable rates are still standard practice and you are almost certain to be offered this option to begin with. Don’t! There are fixed rate programs available now and at today’s rates adjustable rates are only going to go up in the future. It’s easy to be lured into an adjustable rate because lower interest rates in a reverse mortgage have higher monthly payments. If the interest rate increases your payment decreases, as does the time frame you have to draw on the mortgage. Just remember, adjustable interest rates are a gamble and Las Vegas wasn’t built on winners.

A considerable downside to reverse mortgages is the high up front costs. This cost can be compensated by a lower interest rate over time, but some seniors choose other options to draw on their home equity. Reverse mortgage closing costs should be about the same as most loans except the 2% mortgage insurance premium that FHA charges to insure the loan. FHA insures the lender will be paid regardless of the home’s value when and if the lender has to take over the property.

At Lendfast.com we have noticed that many homeowners are paying higher closing costs for reverse mortgages than traditional forward mortgages. We believe this is because most homeowners are unfamiliar with reverse mortgages and tend to not shop around as with traditional mortgages. This is why we recommend the FHA insured type of reverse mortgages because they have closing cost limits that lenders must abide by. Always get two quotes or use the “lenders compete” method to apply for a reverse mortgage. You should also read How Does a Reverse Mortgage Work an article that explains reverse mortgages better.

3) Upkeep, Taxes and Insurance – On traditional mortgages your escrow payments are added to your payment but they are subtracted from your monthly check on a reverse mortgage. Most of the time you will be shown the monthly amount you will receive each month BEFORE the escrows are taken out. This means that you could sign up expecting to get $900 per month and only receive around $700. Make sure you are given the monthly payment LESS your escrow payment. Like most mortgages you will usually be given the option to escrow or not to escrow, however the bank has a vested interest in your home. Meaning if you do not maintain your insurance and taxes as they deem responsible they can call the loan or force an escrow account on you.

When you consider that the bank is basically buying your home you can understand why they would want you to keep their property in good shape. The problem is that this loan is being made to senior citizens. As they age they may become unable to do the necessary maintenance that the bank requires.”Good shape” can mean thousands of dollars out of pocket for the homeowner when you consider what a new roof or a fresh coat of paint costs these days. Ask the loan officer what the lenders policy is on maintenance and repair. You may want to take enough money up front to have future repairs taken care of so that your monthly payment stays the same.

HOMEBIZMANIA And Abraham Maaslow’s Hierachy Of Needs Theory – A Corellation?

In this article, I’m going to discuss what I call the phenomenon of HOMEBIZMANIA which is presently taking the world by storm if you permit me to use that world. Agreed, HOMEBIZMANIA has been around for some years but how is it that it has continued to flourish despite the gradual reduction in those propagating factors that account for its growth?

So I will bring my own perspectives and attempt to show the connection between HOMEBIZMANIA and a twentieth century motivational theory propounded by Abraham Maaslow which he called “The Hierarchy of Needs”

What is HOMEBIZMANIA?

This is a word that I’ve used to coin the wide acceptance and continued growth of Home Based Businesses.

Why are more Home Based Businesses being set up despite the weekly rise in the number of jobs created in the economy? One would expect that as more jobs are being created in the economy, there will be a reduction in the number of Home Based Businesses being created. But this is not the case.

This is a question that is puzzling to many Economists and Management experts.

The well known reasons for setting up Home Based Businesses are enumerated below:

The Home Based Business Owner wants to earn extra income to supplement the monthly salary earned from the 9 to 5 job

After retirement, you realize you’re not really tired and in order to keep busy set up a Home Based Business. The retirement income may not be good enough and setting up a Home Based Business could also be a good way to supplement it.

This is very popular with baby boomers who have become stronger and healthier.

Others have been laid off at their places of work and decide to set up a Home Based Business to earn income

For some other people, they just want to be their own boss and try out some ideas that they have.

For some, they see it as a “fad” and want to be part of it.

So why are many Home Based Businesses being set up despite rise in the number of jobs being created in the economy and the rise in the number of people being hired?

There are many reasons for this:

The failure rate of Home Based Businesses have reduced due to the fact that a lot of Home Business Owners now have business management training experience and this has helped them to manage their Home Based Business more efficiently

Also with the giant strides in modern Information and Communication Technology, there are now many Tools available in the market to facilitate the job of the Home Business Owner. With the help of some software, the Home Business Entrepreneur can multitask and carry out the job of running his/her business with more ease and efficiency.

The power of the Internet, Email marketing coupled with an effective Customer Relationship Management System help the home Business Owner perform better.

Also using a well- designed interactive website helps to give the Home Based Business a global exposure.

The use of Freelancers also help the Home Business Owner to access expert help at a lower cost.

All the factors mentioned above have emboldened more people to attempt to have a shot at setting up a Home Based Business. But I reluctantly agree with this position.

So what is the main motivator?

It’s here that I would like to introduce the Hierarchy of Needs Theory of Abraham Maaslow.

Abraham Maaslow was a motivational Psychologist and propounded this theory in the year 1943 when he presented a paper titled” A Theory Of Human Motivation “

Maaslow’s Hierarchy Of Needs is usually depicted as a Pyramid.

At the bottom of the Pyramid are the most basic needs of man which he described as “Physiological Needs”.

At the top of the Pyramid, you have the need for “Self Actualization” Moving from the bottom to the top of the Pyramid, Maaslow described the various factors that motivate the individual to progress along the steps of the Pyramid.

Self -Actualization is described as the final stage of attempting to achieve one’s full potential as a human being after surmounting the other basic needs.

My Take?

I believe that Self Actualization could be the main reason why many people are now keying into the Home Based Business Industry. Self – Actualization is the main reason why people are still busy setting up more Home Based Businesses despite improved employment indices

Over to you; Do you agree with the ideas raised in this post? Please send in your thoughts.
