Palmistry Love Line: How Will Your Love Life Pan Out?

palmistry love linePalmistry, also known as palm reading, is an ancient practice that allows a reader, by simply looking at the lines and mounds of the palm, to not only look into the character and personality of the person being read, but also to foretell any future occurrences regarding money matters, the influence of fate, and our topic today, love. The love line is sometimes referred to as the heart line, or the mensal line, and runs horizontally across the hand. It not only can tell about present and future relationships, but also how healthy the heart will be down the line. If you’re curious about other methods of predicting the future, this course on fortune telling will show you how to see ahead by using cards, as will this article on tarot card spreads.

Face Reading Techniques: Your Face is an Open Book

face reading techniquesMost people think they can control how they present themselves to the world, and for the most part, that’s true. We can dress a certain way to look professional or casual, and we can style our hair in such a way that will impress our boss, or our date, but there’s one thing we can never change (at least not without some plastic surgery), and that’s our face. Love it or hate it, we’re stuck with these eyes, cheeks, chin, and nose, and not only is your face the first thing that the world will see, some people will even be able to tell all about your personality just by your facial features. Try as you might, anything short of a surgeon’s scalpel can’t change these tell-tale signs of the inner you.

Today, we are discussing these face reading techniques, also known as physiognomy and personology. These techniques have been around for quite some time, and have had different applications as time went on. Aristotle was the first person to extensively study and record his findings, then the practice became tied to astrology in the medieval era. In the 18th and 19th centuries, physiognomy was used to detect certain criminal tendencies, and most recently, it’s been used to interpret mental faculties and character traits.

8 Consumer Rights and Responsibilities: How to Be Protected

consumer rights and responsibilitiesChances are, you’ve returned at least one product before in your life – perhaps it was defective in some way, or was given to you as a gift, and didn’t fit, or maybe it wasn’t quite what you expected. There was a time when you, the consumer, would have had a tough time getting your money back, and all consumers had a difficult time being treated fairly by manufacturers. In March of 1962, that all changed, when President Kennedy gave a speech to Congress introducing the Consumer Bill of Rights. In this speech, Kennedy, with the help of consumer rights activist Helen Ewing Nelson, and aide Fred Dutton, laid out four basic rights that consumers should have, which was then expanded to include four more rights.

These eight privileges covered not only people’s rights as consumers, but also grew to include basic human necessities, such as food, water, and shelter. However, along with these rights come responsibilities, and we as consumers must earn these rights, and exercise them wisely, and not take advantage of them. Today, we are discussing these rights and responsibilities, and how they relate to our everyday lives. If you’re interested in this topic, but see yourself on the other side of the equation, this article on online marketing tools, and this course on internet marketing for local business will show you how to reach as many consumers for your business as possible.

Advantages of Hydropower: 8 Benefits of Water-Based Power

advantages of hydropowerPeople have been taking advantage of water’s power for thousands of years, with the Greeks, Romans, and Chinese using it to turn mills for many different purposes, and the technology eventually reaching Europe around the 8th century. The major reason for using water power is that it never runs out, as opposed to the animals who used to power mills, who would inevitably need rest and food. Water has been used as a power source for countless applications, including grinding grains into flour, sharpening metal tools, and cutting trees into lumber, among many others. Grinding and sharpening may not be the preferred use of water any more, with hydropower being used more in the forms of hydraulics and hydroelectricity, with dams and turbines the tools of choice for modern hydropower, as opposed to paddles and wheels.

While no source of energy is without its faults, and hydropower has its share, including pollution, habitat disturbance, and initial cost, today, we are focusing on the benefits and advantages of this type of energy. If you’re curious to learn more about people’s relationship with water, this course on the history of water and humans relates the story of how we’ve been benefitting from H20 for the last 10,000 years.
