There is a small appliance that is growing in popularity in America. This small appliance is the rice cooker. This little appliance can do much more than just cook rice. It is at home both in the kitchen and in the dormitory room.

Of course, best rice cookers make perfect rice, but they can also be used for cooking hot cereals, deserts, stews and soups. They can also steam vegetables to perfection, even while cooking rice.

The best rice cookers are made in Japan. There are other models that may be less expensive from other countries, but you will enjoy using the Japanese rice cookers the most.

Rice cookers come in many sizes from the small three to five cup cookers to the giant fourteen plus cup cookers. Choose a rice cooker that corresponds to the amount of rice you normally cook. They work best when used to cook rice at capacity.

Remember that a Japanese cup is only six ounces. Most Americans are more used to an eight ounce cup. To adjust recipes, remember that rice cooker cups are approximately three fourths of an American cup.

Most Japanese households favor the mid-sized rice cookers.

A non-stick cooking pan in the rice cooker makes cleanup very easy. Rice cooker manufacturers use a high quality non-stick surface that works perfectly with rice. Be sure that you only use the plastic rice paddle to remove food from the pot.

There are several types of rice cookers available. Choose the one that meets your needs and budget.

The least expensive models of rice cookers simply turn off when the water has been absorbed into the rice. These cookers are still very versatile and do a great job when cooking rice.

The next step up in rice cookers will keep the rice warm when cooking is finished. They do not have a true off position, so be sure that you unplug the cooker when finished. You will need to buy at this level or above to get a rice cooker with a non-stick pan.

Some of the more expensive rice cookers have fuzzy logic. This means that they have differing settings for soup or brown rice. Some of these machines even allow you to choose the texture of your finished rice.

The newest and most expensive rice cookers offer induction heating. Rice comes out perfect each time as they can compensate for variations in measurements.

If you enjoy steamed vegetables with your rice, be sure that the rice cooker you choose has a steamer basket. You can steam vegetables as the rice cooks. For extra flavor in your rice add a couple of bullion cubes to the cooking water.

Do not forget that a rice cooker is perfect for a college student who is living in the dorm. They can cook their own meals in a small rice cooker and avoid the expense of the college cafeteria as well as all the unhealthy fast food. Be sure that they are stocked up on rice, canned soups and top ramen for quick meals.



With ever increasing cost of doing business, no funding from the government, and an escalating demand for their services, charitable organizations are staying in business by requesting bigger donations from more donors over and over again than ever before.

Donors should go about their donations strategically and require accountability of the organizations asking for their support.

Individuals contribute over 80% of the money charities in this country raise. In order to ensure that these generous givers are not deceived and help them make judicious giving decisions, the BBB Wise Giving Alliance (the Alliance) offers the following tips on charitable giving:

The Basics

Do not give cash; always make contributions by check and make your check payable to the charity, not to the individual collecting the donation.

Keep records of your givings (receipts, canceled checks, and bank statements) so you can document your charitable giving at tax time. Although the value of your time as a volunteer is not deductible, out-of-pocket expenses (including transportation costs) directly related to your volunteer service to a charity are deductible.

Don’t be fooled by names that look impressive or that closely resemble the name of a well-known organization.

Check out the organization with the local charity registration office (usually a division of the state attorney general’s office) and with your Better Business Bureau.

When you are approached for a contribution of either your time oryour money, ask questions, and don’t give a donation until you’re satisfied with the answers. Charities with nothing to hide will encourage your interest. Be wary of their reluctance or inability to answer questions.

Ask for the charity’s full name and address. Demand identification from the solicitor. Ask if your contribution is tax deductible. Contributions to tax exempt organizations are not always tax deductible.

Ask if the charity is licensed by state and local authorities. Registration or licensing is required by most states and many communities. However, bear in mind that registration in and of itself does not imply that the state or local government endorses the charity.

Don’t succumb to pressure to give money on the spot or allow a “runner” to pick up a contribution; the charity that needs your money today will welcome it just as much tomorrow.

Watch out for statements such as “all proceeds will go to the charity.” This can mean that the money left after expenses, such as the cost of written materials and fund raising efforts, will go to the charity. These expenses can make a big difference, so check carefully.

When you’re asked to buy candy, magazines, card, or tickets to a dinner or show to benefit a charity, be sure to ask what the charity’s share will be. You cannot deduct the full amount paid for any such items, as the IRS considers only the part above the fair-market value of the item to be a charitable contribution. For example, if you pay $10 for a box of candy that normally sells for $8, only $2 can be claimed as a charitable donation.

Call your local BBB if a fund raiser uses pressure tactics such as intimidation, threats, or repeated and harassing calls or visits. Such tactics violate the BBB Wise Giving Alliance’s recommended Standards for Charity Accountability.

The industrial age came to an end in 1990, and the information age ushered in. In the information age, a critical medium called the internet came into play. Most people who embraced this paradigm shift became millionaires and billionaires in their early ages. The internet is a great source of passive income to compliment your day job income that could otherwise not be enough to satisfy your daily needs. Let’s look at some of the online passive income ideas that you can utilize to compliment your day job earnings:

Creating and Selling Your Goods or products Online

With the internet almost everything is automatic. You can sell your product through online marketplaces like Amazon and eBay. But you have to create the product first and nurture the lead to realize sales. For instance, you can write a book, market it online and once customers have read and it befits them, they would give positive reviews. After that, the book would sell itself for the rest of your life.

Join Affiliate Marketing Programs

Affiliate Marketing means you’re selling other people’s stuff or products. Today, numerous affiliate programs dot the internet, for example, Amazon Affiliates and ClickBank. You must first register with the company as a member and obtain your ID. The ID would enable the Affiliate company track your sales and establish your commissions. You can sell those products through your website, Facebook pages, Twitter handle and so on.

Writing Software Programs

If you have the experience and expertise on how to create Software programs you can earn good passive income. You can create software that is supposed to make work easier and faster, and people will buy it. In the Internet age, a lot of individuals are looking for means to automate business processes, so the market is all but assured.

Selling Ads on your website

Ideally, it’s Google Adsense, a free and simple method to earn passive income by plastering ads on your website. Operating Google Adsense is a rewarding passive income idea if your site receives a lot of traffic. Your followers could stumble across those ads and consequently lead to a sale. You would be rewarded by receiving monthly commissions for the sales.

With today’s volatile economy and the shift towards outsourcing by most Fortune 500 Companies, the online space would save you the blushes of having to put up with unsatisfactory payouts. The aforementioned online passive income ideas can be a great source of alternative income to spruce up the quality of your life.

What do you think?

Does money bring happiness?

The answer is so clear to me like the difference between night and day. I have started to question many of the proverbs like, money is root of all evil  or money isn’t everything. I wonder who said these?

It seems like a rummer that someone starts and at the end the message we get has been totally changed.

Why am I saying that? The statement that money isn’t everything is totally true and clear. Money is money and nothing else, like money is not a book or neither a book is money. But you can buy a book and sell a book for money.

It is the value of money that should be talked about, not the physical money itself. So when someone says: “money doesn’t buy happiness” we can say:

 “Money can’t buy happiness, but neither can poverty.” ~Leo Rosten

To prove that money bring happiness, think about these four points.

Point one: Financially, there are 3 groups of people in the world:

1. People who are broke all the time.

2. People who break even  (live paycheck to paycheck)

3. People who have surplus of money.

I promise you that group one and two always try to get to the higher group and group 3 doesn’t want to lose it’s position. Do you agree?

It is very logical, isn’t it?

I know I can concluded that people in group 3 are financially happy to be where they are, but the other two groups are trying to be happier by moving up to another group. It is logical and natural part of life that you would want to move up to higher levels financially from where you are. No one likes or would want to move downwards financially. Ask yourself, which group has less financial stress?

According to a study of 450,000 Americans and how they evaluate their happiness, a salary of $75,000 a year is the magic number after which people’s day-to-day happiness no longer improves. This study was done by psychologist Daniel Kahneman and economist Angus Deaton. From The Wall Street Journal: “It turns out there is a specific dollar number, or income plateau, after which more money has no measurable effect on day-to-day contentment. After that, it is just more stuff, with no gain in happiness. That doesn’t mean wealthy and ultra wealthy are equally happy. More money does boost people’s life as all the way up the income ladder. People who earned $160,000 a year, for instance, reported more overall satisfaction than people earning $120,000, and so on.”

So, according to Wall Street numbers, you won’t be any happier on a day-to-day basis if you’re making $75,000 or $750,000—though you’ll likely feel like you’ve got a better life overall.  See what Arnold said long time ago:

What is another name for satisfaction:

Fulfillment of one’s wishes, expectations, or needs, or the pleasure derived from this.

Is it possible for any one not to be happy by fulfillment of wishes. I do not know your answer, but I will take more money to do what I desire and that would make me happy. Look like someone is playing with words, not me I am very honest and I am sure the difference between $75k and $750k is a lot and most people would be happier with $750k.

Don’t know what the true intension of this reacher was, but I don’t agree with it at all and I think it is a sick idea to force a message to people that is not logical and doesn’t make sense. My point is there are so many thing that is myth (another word lies) and we need to find out the truth and wonder who says what?

 Point two: Smallest amount of change can make a difference in people’s life.

Smallest amount of change can make people extremely happy as if they received a million dollars. I used to live in Downtown Los Angles and walk to my work.  You may have heard, downtown Los Angeles is one of the busiest business centers, crowded and traffic is crazy. Each street is some kind of a district. For example you have the garment district, diamond district, flower district, fruit district and the famous Ally which you can buy just about anything in there.

So everyone working to make some money to provide for their family. On my way to work, I would come across people parking in meter parking area but didn’t have coins or small change to put in the parking meter.

I know fine was $25 dollars and no one in the right mind would want to risk not putting 4 quarters and later on pay the $25 fine. I would always carry quarters with me and give it to people that didn’t have change. This is the time that you could see how the smallest amount of change made people so happy specially with not expecting anything in return.

Now, you tell me if one dollar can make someone so happy or not.

Let me give you another example. Have you ever found a dollar in the street? How did it make you feel? It makes me very happy to find a dollar. My point is smallest amount of money can make you happy.

Point three: Lack of money

Below is a list I put together, it shows how lack of money could effect a person. Surly, all of us would want to have enough money not to worry about bills, be able to eat well, spend more time with our family or have money to travel and have fun. I consider lack of money problem and sadness and having enough money a must to live with freedom and a good indicator of happiness. Even as a well paid marketer – thanks Azzurro Blu 🙂 I still suffer from the same financial worries that most of my friends have

Money Lack of money
– financial freedom – not much of freedom
– better schooling – no school or not a quality school
– less family problems due to finance – lots of family problems
– no worries about bills – lot of worries
– no worries about mortgage or rent – lot of worries
– cars are great – maintaining and paying for gas are problems
– eating well – eating cheap and unhealthy
– no worries about old age retirement – big issue for golden years
-vacation, travel and fun – hardly go anywhere
-able to help others – can’t help even though wants to
– being comfortable – not so comfortable

The table above show lack of money and financial freedom. You can decide for yourself which group you want to be in. My answer is clear, I’d like to have money because it gives me financial freedom. Financial freedom gives me the time freedom to do what I want to do on my own terms.

Being in control of your finance is a great stress reliever.

There are other myths about money that I don’t agree with, you can read about them here. Money is root of all evil or is it?

Point 4: Can you be happy without money or live modestly?

My answer is yes, because many famous people in the world have lived a simple life and were very happy and there are a lot of people who live in poverty and they are happy, too.

Here are a few examples about very famous people who lived a simple life and were very happy.

Jean-Paul Sartre was a French philosopher, playwright, novelist, political activist, biographer, and literary critic. Born: June 21, 1905,  Paris Francedied: April 15, 1980,  Paris France. From what I read, all his life he had only a cane, pair of glasses to read and a few clothes. He never bought a mansion or any property which he could have bought. He won the Noble Prize and Refused it.

Here is another example:

Diogenes of Sinope: Greek philosopher who lived in a barrel and did not even own a cup to drink water or had any dishes to eat his food in.

According to legend, Alexander the Great came to visit the Greek philosopher Diogenes of Sinope. Alexander wanted to fulfill a wish for Diogenes and asked him what he desired. According to the version recounted by Diogenes Laërtius, Diogenes replied “Stand out of my light.”

Diogenes of Sinope believed being happy comes from having less and thinking less about things.

Another example is Mahatma Gandhi

Mohandas Gandhi was the preeminent leader of Indian independence movement in British-ruled India. Born: October 2, 1869, Assassinated: January 30, 1948. He lived a very simple life and wore a white sheet.

There were and are many people who had it all, but lived very happy without money.

In my opinion these people had access to a lot of money if they wanted to, but they chose to be a role model and said that life is not all about money and happiness comes from within. I agree that happiness can be choice and a mindset, but I am not sure if they didn’t have any access to any money or there were in poverty they would have said that happiness is within since a hungry stomach would not be happy until it is feed.

I think when you have enough money to be comfortable and your primary needs are met like food, shelter and clothes then some people can have a mindset that they don’t have to have much to be happy, but still for most of the people with below average income or below poverty level, money easily could bring a lot of happiness. I am talking about majority of the people in the world not a few ultra rich that say more than what they have would not make them happy.

Traditionally, a nation’s economic health is measured by its wealth. But increasingly, some leaders and policymakers are turning their focus to a more human notion of well-being: happiness.

That’s the motivation behind the World Happiness Report, an analysis published by the Sustainable Development Solutions Network, a UN organization that aims to fight poverty by stoking sustainable development. The annual rankings, first published in 2012, aim to quantify happiness using Gallup World Poll data that asked people to evaluate the quality of their own lives on a scale of zero to 10. Here, based on that metric, are this year’s 25 happiest countries:

Most of the happiest countries you see above are rich countries with higher income average except Costa Rica (#12), Mexico (#14), and Brazil (#16), Venezuela (#23), and Panama (#25).

I have visited Mexico, Panama and I have been living with my wife in Costa Rica. My observation is that a lot of people in these three countries live in poverty and they make the best out of what they have. I am sure if you ask any of these poor people that if having more money will make them happier or not, you’ll find the answer to be, YES.

In Costa Rica minimum wage is about $3 an hour, however cost of food, gasoline, electricity, water are as high as USA and in some cases food items are even higher than USA. People may seem happy but they live on rice and beans.

I have a friend that anytime they invite me to their house, I see that their refrigerator is empty. Many people raise chicken so that once in a while they can have better food.

Some people plant corn and beans in their backyards because it is cheaper and go hunting and fishing (not for fun but because it is all they can afford). Some people in Costa Rica work 12 hours a day, six or even seven days a week with no vacation.

Now, you tell me would money bring these people more happiness or not. My answer is 100% yes.

Conclusion: Does money bring happiness or does it?

It depends who you are asking from. Arnold had 48 million and extra 2 million didn’t make him happier even-though it made him more comfortable and financially secure.

If you ask the most famous people who wanted to make a point that money is not everything (even-though they had access to as much as they wanted to and knew they could get to their money at any given moment) they would say no.

If you ask majority of people in the world who live in poverty and don’t have food, clothes, shelter and opportunity in life, majority would say $1.25 could feed a family of four for a day and money for sure can make four people happy for a day.

I value your opinion so please tell me what you think?

If you want new furniture, you may be cringing at the prices on some of your favourite choices. In current times, many families who may have been able to afford to go out and get the furniture set they wanted just two years ago simply can not afford to do it now. If you want something new, but you have to watch how much you spend, there are some great ways you can get a furniture discount on just about anything for your home. If you have some time, and are willing to be flexible, you can save money on some great pieces for your furniture needs.

One thing you should always do is to shop around, but it is even more important when you want to get a furniture discount. Sales are down in almost all areas of retail, and stores know they may have to cut some prices to get you to buy. Unless you live in a very rural area, you probably have a few different stores from which you can choose. Go to all of them, see what you like, and make it clear that you are shopping around and that you are going to go with the store that is willing to give you the best deal. Banchory furniture store owner, Joseph says, “with a great sale on in our store, there’s no price we can’t beat!”

You may or may not get some offers this way. Make the most of your trips by seeing what you like and what prices are out there. You may not find the same set in another store, but you may find one with the same qualities that you like just as much. Take note of the price. You can ask each store if they are willing to give you a furniture discount based on what you found at the other. They may not, but you may get what you want. It never hurts to ask. Some stores know an outright ‘no’ may mean you walk out and never come back.

If you still are not sure if you are getting the furniture discount that is the best that you can do, take some time to look online. Some stores have furniture items on their web sites that are discounted and not available in their show rooms. It can be harder to buy a couch or living room chair this way, as you should always sit on something to make sure it feels good, but you can find some great deals this way. When calculating the furniture discount you may be getting, be sure to factor in shipping or delivery charges.

Don’t forget about the items that were never delivered or picked up. Most stores have orders that come in and the customer changes their mind, usually because they discover they can’t afford the set or they found something at a much better price somewhere else. At times, these may even be special ordered and can not be put out in the main showroom. Ask to see any of these items your local store may have. You can find great items and sets with a fabulous furniture discount to boot. You won’t have a huge selection, but you may find something you love this way and a price you can truly appreciate.

Home theatres continue to be a part of the entertainment units of many houses. A reason for this is that home theatres have different settings and tweaks that are credited with the difference people experience for their investment. To end up with the best home theatre system you should first ensure that you are aware of every aspect of its technology. Most people find themselves victims of ignorance and end up paying too much money for old technology and this is because they did not take time to check if their equipment had the latest technological features.

When looking for the best home theatre you should also understand the requirements, view a huge range of entertainment systems at The form and dimensions of the place where the home theatre will be placed is another important consideration as placement of the system can affect delivery as well. To get the best place for the system you should measure the existing distance from your sitting area and the screen. The distance will play a big role in determining the screen.

The screen to be used with the home theatre is another consideration if the combination is to be effective for use in things like movies. The best TV to use with a home theatre system is a plasma TV or wide-screen LCD. There are people who prefer LCD TVs as they see them as being more durable. There are people who buy the sound system for the sole reason that they need good sound for the music and movies and if you are one of them then you should really look into the home theatre’s sound systems before actually buying it.

The sound system can be surround sound or loudspeakers and both are quite important as you will be assured of a movie-like experience every time you use it. The best home theatre system for the home should also be of the latest make and model. This will ensure that you have bought the system with the latest features. The cost of the home theatre system is another factor you should consider before buying a particular system because if it does not fit in your budget it will affect other needs.

When putting up the best home theatre system for your home it is very important that you follow the guidelines availed by the manufacturer. There are very many settings that you will have to deal with but to ensure that you have everything right it might be advisable to bring in an expert to help with the setting up. Finally, many people have fallen victims of con artists who sell fake products. To avoid being such a victim you should carry out a research to ensure that the company from which they are buying their home theatre system is a genuine company.

There are skilled electricians for every type of electrical work- Commercial, industrial, and residential based on the services provided by an electrician. For those in the industrial market, it is crucial to hire an electrical firm which is typically acquainted with performing industrial jobs. Here is some information on diverse industrial projects and services your local technician may provide:

One kind of industrial electrical service is transmission and distribution. Subversive power transmission is frequently seen in industrial applications. Overhead distribution is also generally seen among industrial sites. It is crucial to have this type of power supplied safely and beyond the reach of workers and employees of an industrial firm.

Several manufacturing plants need professional industrial electrical services for operating them. Majority of the electrical equipment in a manufacturing plant is built in a manner that the workers are protected and also to prevent equipment damage. Custom enclosures are an area of expertise of industrial electricians. Operating large manufacturing plants also needs some unique thinking due to the amount of power that is required to be availed at all times. Your electricians will work to create methods to make the site in the maximum possible energy efficient manner.

Solar power might be installed and used in many diverse types of industrial situations. One of the main purposes of solar power is to help the main power of a plant or building. Electricians can design a specific area of a warehouse or plants to entirely run on solar power, and install the panels that will be the primary source for this kind of energy.

Another useful method of generating industrial power is through utilization of wind. Huge windmills can be installed to generate naturally existing wind into energy and electricity. Other things which will be installed with this system are transmission lines, substations, and underground distribution. Systems such as these require instruments which need to be integrated for acquiring energy as an end result.

Industrial electrical services are complex and they may prove dangerous if not handled by a professional. Such type of repair or installation needs huge electrical systems which receive great degree of care during planning and installation phase.

Its often thought that, in business at least, perfect opportunities are hard to come by, but that’s not entirely true. People only tend to miss out on great opportunities because they keep seeking the perfect one. As a matter of fact, any opportunity that presents itself to you could be the perfect opportunity if only you treat it as one. Any opportunity is as ordinary as the other, and it only becomes perfect once it yields success.

There is a certain skill, however, in knowing how to turn that great opportunity into a golden one. And that is where the question now lies – Can you turn an ordinary opportunity into the perfect one?

Skills can be acquired, sure, but talent cannot. And trying to better yourself to fit every job out there will ultimately prove futile. Noone can be tailor-made for every job.
Nevertheless, people in the same career must have a common trait that makes them good at what they do. Teachers must be more than just sympathetic, they must be compassionate. Winners are perceptive, with very keen senses and a heightened level of common sense. These and many other traits make them victorious.
Leaders need to have same traits as well, being able to listen, to follow, to deliberate, and to lead. Sum it all up, and you get a trait that’s rather difficult to acquire regardless of your career – Leadership.

Everyone knows what it means to become a leader, but to know what it takes to become one is a different story. Leadership is a huge burden to bear, and an almost impossible task. The cliche describes it well, Leaders are not made, they are born. One cannot just Google his way to leadership.

Leadership is not a status one earns over night as we have often witnessed at Appetite For Business. Years and years of hard work, and of both triumphs and failures create a good leader. But one does not necessarily have to be old to become a leader. Many a brilliant minds today reach their leadership statuses by learning empirically, and at the same time immersing in leadership development. Seminars that offer leadership development help aspiring leaders to get that sought-after top management spots.

People who value leadership understand the requirements and demands of becoming a leader, For these requirements to be met, an aspiring leader may choose for the rest of his life experiences to teach him lessons, or he can focus on leadership development to help him identify the traits that make him a leader and more importantly, how to make the best out of it.

Don’t pop that zit! Surely you’ve heard that statement before. You may have even heard your mom say it when you were about 13 or 14 years old. Well, the truth is she was correct. It is not a prudent choice to pop pimples and hope they heal up and go away. This can not only often make them worse, but it can cause scarring as well. So instead of pinching, poking, prodding and popping, you should seek out the best acne medication for your skin type and condition. Allow the blemish cream or acne toner to do the work for you. Not only will these help clear up your complexion, but they can additionally aid with preventing new whiteheads and blackheads from forming.

Where do you go to find the best acne medication and treatments currently available? What about a general acne related website like this? The truth is there are several routes to take when it comes to clearing up your skin. One method is to visit a licensed dermatologist and see what he or she recommends for your skin. More than likely they will tell you what type of acne you have and then suggest a prescription medication. Although these are generally topical, they may even prescribe you an oral medication to control your hormones and oil production from the inside. These are often quite effective.

If you take some time to look online, you will notice a lot of websites claiming to offer the best acne medication. Probably the most notable one at this point is Proactiv Solution. This company has sold millions of acne treatment kits and products to individuals all over the globe. They now have an excellent reputation for being effective in treating and preventing acne breakouts. If you take a peek at their official website, you will notice that a started kit can be purchased.

Local drugstores offer all sorts of over-the-counter acne blemish solutions. As far as the best acne medication or cream goes, this generally depends on the person. For example, maybe you prefer a topical medication with the drying agent benzyl peroxide, or you may also like toning aids that contain salicylic acid. While the first ingredient aims to dry out blemishes, the second component is an exfoliant that aims to clear away dead skin cells and allow the pores to breath. While both can effectively assist with clearing up blemishes like whiteheads and blackheads, you have to decide for yourself which one is the best acne medication for you and your skin type. Some of these products can irritate certain individuals, while others are milder. The key is to try out a few different topical creams and gels, and then decide which one is working for you. There are also acne cleansers to give a shot.
