How to Mesmerize Women Into Wanting You

How to Mesmerize Women Into Wanting You

Hypnosis is the quickest way to attract women, but most men don’t know where to start learning about this seduction tactic. You must have heard about this in other circles, but have never thought of hypnosis as a seduction tool.

This seemingly mysterious art is often used by master seducers albeit very subtly. You see, being subtle and being smooth are the keys to making hypnosis work for you when seducing women, even the most gorgeous ones. Here are four tricks you can use as soon as you can find a woman you want to date.

Make women want you by mesmerizing them – use these 4 surefire methods…

1: “Deep and Significant Connection”. Building rapport means making her feel loved and special. You must show genuine interest, and be able to generate the same level of attraction in women to really build rapport. Hypnosis allows you to connect with a woman on the emotional level, making it impossible for her to resist your advances. When she feels that inexplicable feeling of attraction for you, she instantly becomes enchanted by your personality. Who said love at first sight doesn’t exist? It does happen; in her mind and in her heart.

2: “Reversal”. This psychological prompt effectively puts you in control of the situation. Your conversation becomes compelling when you make it clear that you won’t readily agree to everything she says. Egging her on, and making her debate with you while keeping that aura of silent confidence around you will mystify her. Before she knows it, she’s hanging on to your every word and she’s seeking your approval at every turn.

3: “The Reckless Guy”. If she feels that there’s something noticeably evil about you, she’s genuinely attracted. Why? Because women love bad boys, or pseudo-bad boys (nice guys who can act evil on a whim). Being too nice will not make her feel deep emotions for you, while being perceived as bad has the opposite effect.

4: “Fractionation”. Here’s a trick you should definitely know about. Almost all the experts of seduction know about this method of making women fall in love through hypnotic conversation.…

Stalin’s Lovers and Wives

Stalin’s Lovers and Wives

My life was strongly influenced by the Soviet dictator, Joseph Stalin, as described in my autobiography (the link is in the resource box below). That is why I am so interested in his life. As a young man I glorified him; as an old man I condemned him. Stalin, born to poor Georgian parents (in 1879), attended a Russian Orthodox seminary. But instead of becoming a priest he became a revolutionary agitator. He helped to organize strikes in Georgia, and participated in terrorist activities–to raise funds for the Russian communist party created by Lenin. Arrested several times, and sent to Siberia, he managed to escape.

After the second Russian revolution (1917) Stalin became a close associate of Lenin. In 1922, after the civil war ended, Lenin promoted him to the post of the general secretary of the Bolshevik party. That position allowed Stalin to become the supreme ruler of the country after Lenin’s death (1924). Stalin was a brutal fanatical leader responsible for tragic deaths of millions of Soviet people. My own father was one of his victims. That aspect of Stalin’s activities is described in many books. But most of these books focus on Stalinism as a political system, not on the private life of the Soviet leader. A more recent book, “Stalin: The Court of the Red Tsar,” by British historian S. S. Montefiore, is an exception. What follows is based on information from that book.

Stalin’s first wife, Ekaterina Svinadze, from a cultured Georgian family, was a sister of his revolutionary friend. They married in 1906. But she died in 1907, at the age of 22, after giving birth to their son Yakov. That child, raised by the Svinadze family in Georgia, was subsequently sent to Moscow. But his relations with Stalin were not good.

Maria Kuzakova was another woman in Stalin’s life. They met in Siberian exile, where he was sent after one of his arrests for revolutionary activities. Their out-of-wedlock child, Konstantin Kuzakov, was born after Stalin’s escape. After returning to Georgia, Stalin met Olga Allilyuev, the wife of his fellow Russian revolutionary, Sergei. Close relations between Stalin and Olga are mentioned by Montefiore. It is interesting that the daughter of Sergei and Olga, Nadia, became Stalin’s second wife, fifteen years later. She was 18 and he was 39. They had two children, Vasily and Svetlana. But that was not an easy marriage; Nadia killed herself in 1932. Some believe that she was actually killed by Stalin, to free himself of his interfering and neurotic wife.

Subsequently, Stalin had casual relations with many young women: actresses, ballerinas, opera singers, etc. But his last love affair, with a simple Russian peasant woman, Valentina Istomina, was long-lasting. Officially she was his housekeeper, beginning in 1934, when she was nineteen. But she became a devoted mistress, and a second mother to Stalin’s daughter, Svetlana. One might say that Valentina, whom he called Valechka, was, in effect if not in fact, Stalin’s third wife.…

Birthday Gifts for Old Men

Birthday Gifts for Old Men

We all love to recognize the birthdays of our loved ones, friends, and family members with meaningful and unique gifts. Some people, though, are easier to buy for than others. Perhaps a good friend has clear loves, hobbies, and the like, making them easy to buy for. Maybe a loved one is good at letting you know exactly what they want for their upcoming birthday. For every person in your life who is easy to buy for, there’s someone who is a tough to pick out gifts for. Very often, these toughies are old men.

Picking out birthday gifts for old men is a challenge first and foremost because they already have most of what they need day-to-day. When they do have a need, old men tend to fill it on their own, preferring to be independent to asking others for gifts. While this can make it difficult to pick out birthday gifts for old men, it’s also an opportunity to buy a gift that they would never think to buy for themselves – something unique and meaningful. Here are a few ideas:

Birthday Newspaper: I’m not suggesting you swing by the news-stand on the way to the party. There are a number of services that can provide you with an authentic newspaper from just about any specific date ranging back to the late 1800s. What an interesting walk back through history this can provide. Think of the impact the gift of a newspaper from the day of their birth, their marriage, or other important life event would have on the old man in your life.

Land – Lots of Land: Yes, you can pick up 50 mini-parcels of land for only a few dollars for your grandfather. Of course don’t expect too much for the twenty bucks. You’ll get fifty one-inch square plots; one in each of the 50 states. But I’m sure he’ll love the legal Deed of Land supplied with his name on it. You can frame it or put it on a plaque. Now he’ll have 50 different places to dream about retiring on (not really!) but fun!

Old Time Radio Shows: When choosing birthday gifts for old men, consider that they might enjoy taking a walk down memory lane by re-listening to some of the greatest radio shows ever produced. The golden age of radio is long past, but remembered fondly by many senior citizens. Unfortunately, it’s pretty unusual to hear these shows rebroadcast over the air nowadays. Fortunately, you can purchase compilations of variety and sketch shows, radio dramas, detective stories, and much more, including an excellent collection put together by media legend Walter Cronkite himself.

Ballpark Pens: In generations past, baseball truly was the American pastime, and just about everyone was a fan of the game. This means that most old men have some fondness for the sport, and cherish memories of sitting in the cheap seats at this stadium or that, long-since demolished, replaced, or changed forever. Enterprising business-folks have reclaimed to …

Is Your Business an Energy Star?

Is Your Business an Energy Star?

As a green business, you are probably aware of how Energy Star appliances can help you with your production and environment while helping you cut costs and be a responsible member of the world community. What you may not know is that your business itself can earn the Energy Star. That's right; The rating is not just for the appliances you use to build. It's not easy rating to achieve but nothing worth doing is easy. You work hard to make your business the best it can be in other areas; Making your Texas business the best it can be energy wise just makes sense.

Energy Star uses the EPA's rating system based on how your company stands up to other similar businesses throughout the country. To qualify for the rating a business must make the best use of sustainable energy and conservation resources. The company needs to be in the top 25% of the EPA's Performance Rating System.

It does not cost anything to apply for an Energy Star rating, but the value received can be without measure. Having this rating gives your Texas business top billing in the ecologically minded communities and will help you build customer satisfaction and draw more loyal clients to your doors. The areas surrounding major metropolitan cities in Texas such as Houston, Dallas, Austin and DFW are growing in their desire to make the best use of sustainable energies. You can prove your participation in a way that has national resonance by achieving Energy Star status.

Getting your company ready to participate in the program can be complicated if your structures are already in place, but not impossible. Replacing old fixtures with conservation models, replacing heating and cooling systems with more efficient systems that use sustainable energy like solar or thermal power. Finally, and maybe more difficult, are the methods with which waste matter is distributed depending on your type of industry. Compliance with all Federal levels of toxic release will greatly influence your Energy Star rating.

It is much easier to incorporate green building methods with new construction. However, showing that you can create a green atmosphere from old buildings and methods will put you in a great position for positive media and community recognition. That recognition translates into excellent PR and development of consumer loyalty.

Along the community recognition and customer loyalty, you will have the satisfaction of knowing you are working toward making the environment safer for yourself, your children, and all of the people around you. Energy Star works hard to promote the companies that meet their requirements for this rating as well. You will gain media attention and have the honor of being a partner to give your company a fantastic boost in the eyes of consumers everywhere. Having the most recognized symbol of efficiency behind your company is priceless. …

Sleeve Garters – The History and Future of a Classic Men’s Fashion Accessory

Sleeve Garters – The History and Future of a Classic Men’s Fashion Accessory

Gamblers and cardsharps, gunslingers and knights-errant, traveling jazz musicians and punk rockers, even office clerks have had a hand in shaping the long and colorful story of sleeve garters — one of the classiest underrated accessories in the history of men’s fashion. Although often regarded today as novel anachronisms from a bygone era, arm garters have meant much to the men who have worn them throughout the ages — from practical necessity to the highest symbol of honor and loyalty, the sleeve garter may not be as prevalent today as in centuries past, but it’s looking better than ever.

Garters in the Middle Ages and Camelot

The sleeve garter has been making sporadic appearances in fashion since the Middle Ages, during a time when leg garters were a common accessory for both men and women — in the era before elastic, both sexes used leg garters to hold up their stockings. These garters were often fanciful, highly decorative, and worn to be displayed, a trend that dominated men’s clothing clear through the 18th century.

Great Britain’s ultra-exclusive Most Noble Order of the Garter, in fact, was a product of this period, having been established by King Edward the III sometime in the mid-14th century as a fellowship of chivalrous knights bound by the symbol of the garter. The organization, still in existence today, is limited to royalty and foreign sovereigns and is regarded as one of the most elite societies in the world.

The reason Edward III chose to use the garter as a symbol of his fraternity is shrouded in legend and has been the subject of a great deal of controversy and debate. Some trace Edward’s inspiration to the Crusades, where knights were said to have tied garters around their legs as talismans that would assure them of victory. Others say the source can be traced to the leather straps that knights of the period wore around their arms to bind pieces of their armor. The inspiration of the garter has also been attached to none other than legendary Camelot, where many members of King Arthur’s Round Table, most notably Sir Gawain, wore garters as a sign of solidarity, loyalty, purity, and brotherhood.

By the end of Elizabethan England, arm and sleeve garters had largely faded from fashion but were destined to make a big comeback during the 19th century. With the Industrial Revolution came the introduction of mass produced textiles, making clothing like basic pants and shirts more affordable to the average person. But mass produced clothing, which couldn’t be pre-fitted to the wearer, tended to come in only standard sizes while most men’s shirts were produced with sleeves in only one length, extra long. Arm garters were a convenient and, for those who couldn’t afford their own tailor, necessary way to adjust the length of one’s sleeves by keeping excess material bunched above the elbow near the shoulder.

Though production techniques improved over time, leading to …

Forex Executor: What Makes This System Different?

Forex Executor: What Makes This System Different?

If you are hearing about the latest forex trading service – Forex Executor – for the first time and you want to do some of your own investigation into it, you can research the Forex Accurate program in order to gain some insight. This newest entry into the forex field is based on the aforementioned Forex Accurate program, put together as it was by the same team of associates: Victor Harrisson and Richard Chandler. If you’d rather save yourself some time, you can read this article, wherein we will disclose a few of the dirty little secrets about Forex Executor and what you may expect from it.

Before we begin, we think it only prudent and fair to state that programs such as this are as dynamic as living organisms – progressing, changing, correcting, and improving all the time. What has happened in the past may not always be a reliable gauge for future performance. We assert that this applies to both the positive and the negative side of the coin.

Most people interested in the forex market are familiar with the proliferation of trading robots that have hit this market in recent years. What makes Forex Executor different from all the rest of these products?

For one thing, FX Executor is not a trading robot. It contains a trading copier software that allows it to enter trades on the member’s behalf based on an actual human trader’s activities. In other words, it duplicates that trader’s trades within the participant’s own account. Or at least, that is the stated objective. The early results in the Accurate program were hopeful, as members were impressed by the working functionality of the auto-execute trading aspect. But as time wore on, problems surfaced with disconnections so that trades were not being made. We’ll have to wait and see if any of these problems have been addressed in the Executor program.

Another aspect that is different is the availability of a variety of trading styles – based on the models of conservative, moderate, and aggressive – from which program members are able to choose. The run-of-the-mill robot product usually utilizes only one trading style. So you’re stuck with that, whether it works well or not. In the case of the Executor program, though, each member’s trading portfolio can consist of a combination of one or more trading systems. Members can have any combination of up to five different trading styles associated with their trading portfolio. This factor provides members with the ability to diversify their investing objective to balance poor performing trade styles with good performers and to eliminate any trading style that is not performing.

Clients of FX Executor have the capability to filter the currency pair, setting the money management parameters to suit their individual risk profile. Trading decisions are centered in one master account, managed and monitored 24 hours a day by a human trader. If you want to limit, for example, the lot sizes chosen by the trader for your automated …

A Review Of The Landice L7 Treadmill

A Review Of The Landice L7 Treadmill

The L7 Series Treadmill is its most popular home treadmill. It comes in three models; the Pro Sports Trainer, Cardio Trainer and Executive Trainer. When you review each of the Landice L7 Series treadmills there is one model that is clearly the best buy out of the three.

Landice makes the L7, L8 and L9 Series of treadmills. Although the L7 is the cheapest it’s still an expensive piece of exercise equipment. The 3 home edition models of the L7 Series range from $3,600 to $4,700.

All of the units use the same motor, frame, treadbelt and so on, with the only real difference being in the treadmill’s console. You get the same ultra solid steel frame that supports a maximum user weight of 400 pounds. The motor is probably the best in the industry; an American made beast that is 3 hp continuous duty. The steel rollers are 14-pounds and are 2-1/2″ in diameter. You get a 4-ply treadbelt that is 20″ x 58″ with 15% electric grade elevation. You also get a speed range of 0.5 to 12 mph even when carrying the maximum weight of 400 lbs.

But which of these models represent value for money?

The Landice L7 Series Cardio Trainer Treadmill

The selling point of the Cardio Trainer is that it comes with a contact heart rate crossbar and transmitter strap, which is used in conjunction with any of the 4 Heart Rate Control (HRC) programs provided. The first two standard heart rate control programs maximize workout time by instructing the treadmill to automatically change speed and inclination in order to maintain the targeted heart rate for the duration of the program. There are also two user HRC programs that allow you to create separate custom HRC programs. Each HRC program is broken down into 20 programmable segments for more variety in your heart rate controlled workouts.

While monitoring your rate in conjunction with a treadmills speed might be nice for some, the price of the Cardio Trainer is $400 more than the ProSports Trainer. You have to ask whether the extra 400 bucks is worth it. Probably not, and besides, other treadmills that offer this system, like the Smooth 9.25 treadmill, are cheaper and offer better value for money.

The Landice L7 Series Executive Trainer Treadmill

The control panel of the Executive Trainer is quite awesome. You get numerous alternative displays. You can select the Virtual Situation Indicator (VSI), the Road Display, the Training Calendar, the Track Display and – well, the list goes on. The Executive Trainer is the most expensive of the 3 models, so you’ll be paying around $4,700, which is more than $1,100 more than the ProSport model.

But you have to seriously ask if getting a very fancy console is worth the extra money. Quite frankly, you’re paying a lot of money for what amounts to ‘execute toys’.

The Landice L7 Series ProSport Trainer Treadmill

All this brings us to the cheapest model. You don’t get the fancy cardio-system …
