Free Diapers- Welcomed by Mothers by Dana Marie

Monday, November 23, 2009

Rearing a kid can be quite dear. Although the initial few things you'll be brooding about kid costs, particularly if you are a first time Mom, will be your child's future education, his infant formula, his shots, his crib and push-chair and many other desires that may certainly make a dent on the budget.

little are you aware that one sure thing that you'll be purchasing all the time and will become rather expensive in the long term is his set of nappies. Diapers are indispensable in the life of an infant unless you are willing to wash all the time a fabric nappy full of your child's pee and you know what. Getting free diapers would surely be a pleasant and welcome surprise to Moms who know more than anybody else how important they are to their babies. More so if they will learn that these free diapers will be supplied for a complete year with no costs to be shouldered at all . the truth is, there are several nappy companies in the internet which will offer you free pieces of nappies purely for you to try them out and realize what a good product they're offering. This is their method of advertising their products and have you coming back for more. It is also expected from this style of advertising that you, as receiver of the free diapers, will be spreading out the news to others who might be interested, so accelerating the quantity of people who will be recognizing their products.

To top it off, the participating nappy brands are the leaders in the sector and are famous for their quality products like Pampers.

Not only is it a sure way to save tons of money on nappies, you may be certain that your baby will not be irritated with these quality types of diapers.

Speeding-Up Mitigation Measures. by M.E.Reza

Thursday, November 19, 2009

Reflecting upon the recent International Day for Disaster Reduction (14th October 2009), one cannot help feeling overwhelmed by the enormity of the challenges and tasks involved. It’s an ongoing race against greater losses from natural disasters. Economic losses resulting from natural disasters have increased tremendously, averaging from US$75.5 billion in the 1960s to US$659.9 billion in the 1990s. An average of 326 climate disasters occurred annually from 200 to 2004 according to the United Nations Development Programme report, which affected more that 200 million people, mostly in Asia. So, where do we go from here?

The climate is changing and the disasters getting more frequent. Worst still, the disasters are getting deadlier. There would be more intense typhoons, flooding, droughts and forest fires because of climate change. You can bet on it. Observe the trend and the numbers of disasters, the magnitude of their force and damage. See the fearful patterns, not only in the Asia Pacific region but also in Central America. The linkage between climate change and increasing disasters are obvious. Inevitably governments should be better prepared and speed up measures to mitigate their impact. Most recent call for expediting implementation of mitigations measures were expressed by none other than the UN Under Secretary General for Humanitarian Affairs, John Holmes.(i)

Recently, several disasters have hit the Asian region including devastating floods in the Philippines, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam and Nepal, affecting millions. Holmes who is also the UN’s Emergency Relief Coordinator said that 99 per cent of those killed by natural disasters were in the Asia Pacific region. Hence disaster prone countries are encouraged to spend one tenth of their development funds on efforts to reduce disaster risks. Comparatively, the international community spent US$12 billion on disaster relief in 2008. Allocating such an amount into disaster risk reduction against spending on response and even development would be a good investment. Incidentally, the UN-International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (UN-ISDR) emphatically stress this important step through its slogan “ Invest Today for a Better Tomorrow”.

The severity of natural disasters’ impact on lives and livelihoods as well as the development of nations could no longer be ignored and disaster risks should be taken seriously. Marginal investment in incorporating hazard resistance could have protected property and assets. Without appropriate mitigating measures, development achieved over years of investment could be completely wiped out in a natural disaster. Since vulnerability rest with the communities at the ground level, building effectiveness of disaster management at the community level is of utmost importance as local needs and risks could be adequately assessed and managed.

It is incumbent then for those states affected by these risks to reinforce their commitment to disaster risk reduction through continuing their efforts toward implementing the priority areas of the Hyogo Framework for Action. In addressing disaster management, putting into place policy, infrastructure and operational mechanisms to ensure coordination and partnership with all pertinent stakeholders thus become essential. With the rising magnitude of natural disasters growing beyond the capacity of affected countries to manage it, the changing humanitarian environment calls for comprehensive collaborative and collective action.

A welcomed development in this area is the recent launch of the International Society for Integrated Disaster Risk Management (the IDRiM Society) at the 9th IIASA-DPRI Forum on Integrated Disaster Risk Management (IDRiM Forum) in Kyoto, Japan. (7). The Society’s main objective is to promote interdisciplinary research on integrated disaster risk management modalities for efficient and equitable disaster risk reduction by people, businesses and governments exposed to the natural disasters.(ii)

A Valentine's Day Ecard to Save the Day

Saturday, April 11, 2009

Is there someone special in your life that you want to let know how you feel, but you're too shy to tell them? With Valentine's Day coming up, the pressure is on. You need to tell them before it is too late and you have to wait another year!

Lucky for you, this year you've got a secret weapon. That's right, now you can send free Valentine ecards to your secret crush. You won't need to worry about what to wear or what to say; the ecard says it all for you.

For those of you who don't already know, ecards are greeting cards that you can send to people through their email. All you have to do is find an ecard website (there are many to choose from), choose an ecard, and enter in somebody's email address. The website does it all for you; it has the picture, the text, even the music, if you choose one with sound. Or, if you don't have anybody to send one to, you can just put in your own email address, and you'll have a nice little surprise the next time you log in.

Of course if you want to personalize it, at least a little bit, there are ecards you can choose that are basically templates for you to write whatever you want; they just have a picture on them, or a nice background. You won't ever have to worry about finding a good one, because there are so many to choose from.

There are funny cards, serious cards, birthday cards, and 'just because' cards. For Valentine's Day, you can choose from cards that are more intimate for serious relationships, or you can choose from cards that are meant for any kind of relationship, whether it's family or a friend.

You don't have to worry about claiming brownie points for a good ecard either; the receiver will see that the ecard is from you! Unless, of course, you're sending love ecards to your skeleton in the closet crush and you don't want them to know it's you.

You can choose to make your ecard anonymous, or you can put a fake name. Then when the receiver checks their email, they'll open up a colorful Valentine's Day ecard gushing with unidentifiable love and adoration.

They won't know it was from you until you want them to know and you no longer need to worry about telling them in time for Valentine's Day. You could also put a name that only your crush would recognize, some kind of inside joke or shared experience. That way, if you don't get the response you were hoping for, you can deny that it was you. The name was just a coincidence, obviously.

The card will tell them how you feel, and you can choose to let them know it was you whenever you feel comfortable. The pressure is off your chest and the extreme need to say it is off your mind. by Sarah
