Hot Or Not – The App For Rating And Dating People

Hot Or Not – The App For Rating And Dating People

Share/Bookmark

Do you remember Hot or Not? The rating website, that started it all had come out with a new iPhone app released a few years ago, which allowed you to rate people. Hot or Not allows you to pass judgment on other people on a score of 1 to 10. Most of the features are free, but you can upgrade to a monthly subscription in return for some virtual gifts and ratings. If all you’re interested in is meeting some singles in your city, I’d say you stick to the free version.

hot not app for rating Hot Or Not   The App For Rating And Dating People

Hot or Not is a social networking dating app from Or Not Limited, available for Android and iTunes in the social networking category. You can get to know interesting people and chat with them, get scores on how hot you are, like Facebook friends and so on.

However, to access the app, you need to use a third party website such as Twitter or Facebook so that your social profile gets linked to the Hot or Not website. You can rate anybody but there is a limit to the number of ratings that a member can give in a day. I guess people like it, as it is fun to go through when you are bored.

Here’s how it works – You use Facebook to help you find friends who are interested in dating someone. Just go through the singles’ profiles on Facebook and ‘like’ them if you wish. People take a look at your picture and vote whether you are hot or not. If you also think they are hot, you can get introduced, chat, have fun and even meet each other – it’s up to you to take it further.

Teenagers above 18 can upload their photographs on this site and ask people to rate them – am I hot or not? They can then log back and get an ego boost or a slam. You’ll need to keep in mind that everyone can see your ratings, both friends and enemies.

Say, you want to meet an 18 year old from San Jose who likes windsurfing, you can find one. You just send a request saying ‘I’d like to meet you’ and if he/she is interested, you set up a date. The Café feature allows you to play with either friends or strangers and view the ratings they have given for other photographs. It’s a global party and you can meet anyone living in your area. It’s easy to view profile albums and check out the people nearby. Get to know who has visited you and if there are any mutual attractions.

It’s a great app, so what’s not to like in it, you might think.

Though the site can be fun, I’d recommend kids to stay out of it, as setting up meetings with strangers could end up ugly or downright dangerous. People on the site may not be what they claim to be. Of course, the submissions on the site go through moderators and there are normal people who are looking for a healthy relationship.

The bottom line is that you come out of the site losing your self-esteem or by pumping up your ego. If you are a 9 on Hot or Not, you feel good and if you are a 2, it’s time you got out.

My Broken Heart – Stress And Depression Busters For People Going Through Divorce

My Broken Heart – Stress And Depression Busters For People Going Through Divorce

Share/Bookmark

You thought your marriage was going to last forever, a till-death-do-us-part thing, and then it ended when your husband cheated on you. You both tried to patch things up, of course. You even went to a marriage counselor. Unfortunately, you found no other solution to your marital problems but divorce.

broken heart stress depression busters My Broken Heart   Stress And Depression Busters For People Going Through Divorce

Divorce is very stressful. It affects not only the couple but the children as well. They go through a lot of emotions that, at times, the whole harrowing experience becomes very overwhelming. If you are weak, you could easily succumb to the stress and depression that usually comes with divorce procedures.

Do not let your divorce procedure get the most out of you and turn you into a bitter recluse. Below are some tips to beat the stress and depression that usually accompanies divorce.

Spend More Time with the Children

Yes, you want to sulk in one corner and lick your wounds, but if you have children, then think of them. Children are, after all, the most affected by the divorce, and they cannot fully comprehend yet what is happening around them. You have to help them understand their situation and why their parents’ marriage ended up in divorce.

Spending more time with the children though does not mean that all of you have to wallow in this sad situation and talk about it all the time. Instead, you can spend it to strengthen your relationship with them. Go for a walk with your children, visit theme parks, dine out, set up a “camp” in your bedroom, just do fun things with them. The divorce procedure need not be that depressing for them as well, and you can make them remember that there is still something to smile about.

Make Some Money

Divorce can be very costly, says Tad Nelson & Associates, a Texas-based law firm that specializes in family law and divorce, and it is going to take a huge bite out of your finances. If divorce really is the last option, then you have to prepare for the cost.

There are some things that you can do to prepare financially. For one, you can turn a hobby into a money-making small business. Say for example you crochet baby things, then you can set up a simple yet eye-catching website where you can sell them. You can promote them in your social networking sites. This new venture can be a family effort, something you can work with your children. They will love the new activity and the chance to bond more with you. Two, you can also look for a part-time job. This means extra hours away from the whole drama.

Working while going through the divorce proceedings may seem very difficult when all you want to do is to hide from the world. However, it will be a very welcome distraction from all the stress and negativity that divorce brings. Also, think of the benefits of earning some extra cash and preparing for your new future.

Divorce really is difficult, but it need not be that depressing and stressful. Stay active, and in time, you will get over the whole heartache that it brought you and your family and move on.

I Want To Look After People And Make The World A Better Place!

I Want To Look After People And Make The World A Better Place!

Share/Bookmark

There are lots of different sorts of people in the world, but one of the best kind are those people who really care for others and want to devote their careers to helping people. The thing is, there are so many ways that people need help, and so many things that you could be doing, that if you are this kind of person, you may be a bit stumped as to what sort of profession would suit you best. There is of course, the medical field, which on its own has hundreds of different careers, including everything from being a surgeon to a physical therapist, a nurse to a pharmacist, or a midwife to a clinical psychiatrist. Outside of medicine though, what are some good job paths for people who live to care?

Charities

There are charities for every conceivable good cause, and all of them have a variety of roles that need to be done to continue their work. This means you can be someone on the ground, as it were, for example helping build villages in Africa or rescuing neglected animals, or you can work in fund raising, which is of course essential for any charity. As well as this, there are usually paid jobs in things like IT, administration and other operational things that while not directly related to ‘helping’ per se, allow people who have a leaning towards a certain type of profession outside of the caring field (like a knack for web design) to still do work that helps make the world a better place.

Counseling

If you want to work with people who have problems face to face and have a real chance to make a difference in their lives that you can see emerge over time, counseling can be a really rewarding thing to do for a living. Counselors work in all kinds of environments, including with children, troubled teens, people who have experienced serious trauma (for example soldiers), people who are recovering from addictions, and sometimes just ordinary people who are at a bad point in their lives (perhaps due to a bereavement or divorce). It is a common misconception that counselors are there to advise people. In actual fact, their role is to encourage people to talk through their problems in a constructive way, and to listen.

Care Work

Another field where you can be hands on with people who need help is as a professional carer. You can do this in places like hospices or nursing homes, or on a residential basis, and there are all kinds of people you can work with, including special needs children, elderly people, people with disabilities and people who are terminally ill. It is quite easy to find this kind of work as it is usually in high demand, so a good way to start can be to contact local home help agencies and discuss what they look for in entry level employees. You can also talk to local nursing homes, care homes and hospices and see if they hire people directly, rather than through agencies, as well.

Car Maintenance: 10 Common Mistakes Most People Make

Car Maintenance: 10 Common Mistakes Most People Make

Share/Bookmark

Owner abuse and lack of maintenance play major roles in car breakdowns, but good maintenance does help considerably. Remember this simple formula: Good driving + preventive maintenance = dependability. You must be aware that some vehicles will cost more to maintain properly. It is very important that you know up front what it is going to cost to own and maintain the car you are considering buying.

car maintenance Car Maintenance: 10 Common Mistakes Most People Make


1.Driving with badly maintained brakes

The most important part of your brake system, in most cases, is the most neglected: the brake fluid. This fluid should be replaced every two years, as it attracts moisture. Most automotive manufacturers do not have a replacement interval for this fluid, which is kind of scary.

Brake pads should be inspected annually for freedom of movement. If the brake pads do not move freely in the brackets, as they are designed to, this can cause your brakes to overheat. This is especially not good if your brake fluid has a high content of moisture in it. When the brake pads are stuck in the brackets, it is like driving around with your foot on the brake pedal. Needless to say, this does not help your fuel mileage at all!

2.Buying cheap tires

The most important thing between you and the road is your tires. Most people, if they are on a budget, will purchase the cheapest tires they can. Sometimes you can luck out and get a set of cheap tires that are actually round! Another common problem with cheap tires is that sometimes the steel belt is not centered perfectly within the tire. This can cause the vehicle to pull to the left or right. Oh sure, you could rotate the tires to the rear and the pulling may go away. However, the pulling will return when you rotate the tires back to the front. The only way to correct this permanently is to replace the defective tire.

3.Ignoring the bad suspension health

You should pay attention to any new noises when driving over bumps. Also, you should take notice of differences in handling characteristics when you are on the road. As you drive your car, no one will know the car like you do; you will know when something does not feel right. You should have your car looked at if something does not feel right with it, even if it just passed state inspection the month before!

4.Not replacing battery on time

A battery that tests good one day could fail the following day, if exposed to excessive heat or cold. Also, a battery that may test good could still be weak. A weak battery will cause your starter to work harder, because the battery does not have the cranking amperage that it once had. Your alternator will also have to work harder to try to replenish or keep the battery charged fully. A weak battery can cause premature failure of your starter, alternator, and other electrical components in your car. If your battery is four to five years old, I recommend that it be replaced to provide you with maximum reliability.

5.Not keeping a watchful eye on engine oil

Oil is as important to your car as blood is to your body. Unfortunately, your car can’t maintain its oil level all alone. By keeping a watchful eye on the level and cleanliness of oil in your engine, you can make sure your car runs healthy and strong for years.

6. Not Protecting The Car Paint

At least twice a year, try to use a high-quality wax on your vehicle to protect the paint. If you have a bird leave a deposit on your car, hose it off as soon as you can. This nasty stuff can burn and bake into your paint, causing permanent damage. After you wax your car and it rains on your car, you will notice that the water beads up nicely and rolls off, but not all of it does. When the sky clears and the sun comes out, these remaining beads of water are heated by the sun, acting like little magnifying glasses. They can burn little water spot circles into your paint. This can also cause permanent damage. Get yourself a drying chamois; you can purchase them at almost any parts store or department store.

7.Driving with low coolant levels

Most coolant reservoirs have a minimum and maximum level. If the reservoir is empty, this may indicate that the engine is burning up the antifreeze. If your coolant reservoir is not getting topped off, when you get your car serviced, an air pocket can form in your engine’s cooling system. When this happens, it does not allow the coolant to flow as it should. Your engine can overheat as a result, causing engine damage.

8.Using deteriorated wiper blades

If you haven’t devoted much time or energy to car maintenance, chances are you have a streaky windshield. This is usually caused by deterioration of the wiper blades due to aging and the environment. If the wipers are really damaged, metal might be scraping your windshield, in which case you should not use the wipers until you have replaced the blades. If you see your blades need changing, you should take care of it right away.

9.Using bad fuses

Every car has fuses installed in its electrical system in order to protect components from an over-current situation that could cause damage or electrical fires. A fuse’s job is to fail if too much current goes through the line for any reason. Once the fuse fails, electricity cannot get to the components in the line that are past the fuse. This ensures that having too much current on a line will only blow a fuse that costs a few cents instead of your pricey stereo system or electronic gauges. It also prevents your systems from drawing too much current and overheating, which could result in melted wires or a fire.

10.Driving with a bad axle

Next, you should drive the vehicle to a big paved parking lot that is fairly empty. Come to a complete stop and turn the steering wheel all the way to the right until the steering wheel stops. Now accelerate the vehicle and drive it in a complete circle and come to a stop. Now do the same thing, but steer the car to the left in a complete circle and come to a stop. When doing this, if you notice a loud clicking noise from the front end, it indicates that the vehicle has bad axles or bad constant velocity joints. All vehicles today with front-wheel drive have constant velocity joints, usually called CV joints for short.

Nothing lasts forever, but by following the advice given in this article, you can have your vehicle last as long as possible, while staying dependable.
