  • The joys of Soundcloud

    Music in the past 15 to 20 years has changed a lot. Actually too much but for the better and things are just crazy.

    Remember the days when CDs were the best things you can get your hands on and radio was where you heard the latest music or perhaps MTV would suggest what music was in these days? Well that is all gone now.

    The fact is people have better tastes in music than they did a long time ago but it's only because they couldn't find what they really wanted to listen to. If you liked jazz music for example you can forget the likes of MTV as they are just one shite music station.

    Then came the mp3 which changed everything completely. Now people could listen to their music on their computers and download it. Then apple smacked everyone across the face with their ipod.

    Mp3 players were popular but the ipod changed things fast and now everyone has their music on mp3 format ready to go.

    Then sites like myspace came on the scene and now you could find all sorts of cool music. They were hot and then they kinda fizzled out. Now internet radio has hit the scene, although it hasn't dominated the business it is certainly popular amongst many.

    Then there was tunein radio which is another cool sick website and also a great app.

    These days my new favourite has become Soundcloud. I just love soundcloud.com now.

    So what am I listening to right now? I have no idea but the dj set is sick. All sorts of amazing djs everywhere.

  • Hantavirus Outbreak Scary Stuff!

This due to the huge numbers of people that have shown symptoms of the said virus. Some symptoms of the Hantavirus are headache, respiratory problem which include difficulty in breathing and frequent coughing, fever, and muscle pain. These symptoms may leads to serious problem and may cause even death.

And every year, millions of people visit this park. Curry Village which is located in Yosemite is suspected to be the most infected area. During this year, there are more or less 4 millions of visitors came to visit this park. This means that those visitors are more likely to become infected with the said virus.

    Among those visitors, only estimated of 3000 people have been contact and have given information regarding the virus. They were strongly advice that if symptoms persist then they need to consult their doctor for medical attention. Thus, park authorities take action by closing all the tent cabins to avoid more infections. In addition, those people who have stayed in the tent cabins are suspected to have Hantavirus. In fact, among those people who were infected, two of them died and miraculously the rest of them have healed. According to research, the virus takes 7 to 28 days in order for them to be incubated after the exposure. Therefore, people who were exposed to the virus must be always alert for any symptoms.

  • Diamond in the ruff

    If you have diamonds in your possession and you are thinking about trading them on for cash, best thing to do is to assess the value of the diamonds you have. There are a lot of factors that go into determining what makes a quality and valuable diamond. Not all diamonds hold equal weight and there are different colors associated with diamonds which are basic indicators of quality.

    It all comes down to the 4 Cs: clarity, carat, color, cut.

    Clarity is how well you can see through the diamond. The color of the diamond can be many shades. A diamond is graded as flawless which the name implies you can't see any imperfections on closer inspection and this means the value of this diamond is at the maximum. There are many different grading systems which at first seem complex but are more or less standard when it comes to grading of diamonds. There is the American Gem Society, International Diamond Council (IDC) and European Gemology Laboratory (EGL).

    Only 20% of diamonds that are mined are considered gem stones which is the best quality rating.

    Watch out for clarity enhancements which although make the diamonds look better but they are more or less considered counterfeits and with an industry like gem stones, lots of people will take the time to do anything to enhance the value.

    If you have diamonds laying around and thinking about selling them, get them checked out for quality and it doesn't hurt to get 2 or 3 different gemologists to check them for their quality and originality. 

    Now you can sell your diamonds here. Selling diamonds online is really no different than selling gold or other jewelery.

  • Discovering online casinos

    Going to an online casino is one of many ways to enjoy gaming without the long trip to a vacation destination that is filled with tourists playing slot machines.

    If you are not in favor of gambling in places where there are lots of people, you can go to an online casino that has everything that a live casino has without all the cigarette smoke, annoying tourists, and the chances to lose money. When you play online, you actually get a chance to play some games for free and other games for money. This gives you a chance to learn what to do to win certain games, and it also teaches you what to do if you are at a real casino.

    Moreover, there is much more to do in a casino besides the gaming. A sportsbook is something that most casinos have because of the heavy influence that sports has on how much money casinos can make. Having a chance to make wagers on your favorite teams as they play in games that are very interested in is a good thing for you. Not only will you get the chance to wager on sports, but you can wager on sports and immediately take your winnings and play something else.

    Though the games of chance are not as real online, they are still a great of fun. Trying to bet the right number in roulette is a thrill. Playing blackjack and dueling with the dealer is no different than in a casino, and you can learn to play poker just like the pros. You can even choose your style of poker so that you can learn the way that will benefit you in real life.

    Online gambling is more fun because you can play from the comfort of your home right at your computer. If you are one that doesn't trust the random number generators then you should consider live dealer casinos.

    This way you get to see the dealers deal your cards through a video service or webcam and the only thing you could possibly question is if the deck is stacked. One casino I tried where they had live blackjack and live roulette was guru play casino and I found more information and research at grem before I joined:

    http://www.grem.net/casino-reviews/guru-play-review

    To summarize I got a good bonus and was able to cashout and made a cool 45 quid profit playing blackjack. Most of the players at my table were clueless and kept messaging to say 'nice win'.

    I can tell you myself that I'm not complaining.
