love to trek to the huge mountains, forts, and the fascinating dense forests. Your destination must depend on your taste and reasoning. Reasoning means where you wish to go and for what reason you wish to go? Whether you wish to just relax or go on an adventurous trip.

There are some basic principles that you can follow to make your trekking experience memorable. Firstly decide on where you wish to go and for what long you wish to stay outdoors, a whole week, a weekend or only a day. This will help you for further preparations. The duration of the trek will decide how much equipment you have to carry with you.

Fitness is very essential element when you decide on a walking holiday. Before a trek, you have to train yourself and get fit. You have to test your mental and physical ability before you decide on a trek. A right attitude and determination are very essential elements when you want to trek. Based on your ability, attitude and determination you can decide the degree of challenge you are ready to face. Always keep in mind that when you are on a long trek, there will be little or no transport to return to civilization.

A trek is totally different from a hike. A hike is a walk in the outdoors for a day or two and the path or trail in a hike is well-defined whereas a trek requires a demanding walk and the path or trail may or may not be defined. While you are on a trek often the surroundings are unknown and the trails are uncertain. You would require a map and a compass to navigate if you are on a trek. So whenever you assess yourself be practical and realistic. Also include members in your group wisely.

A trek can be divided into three general grades easy, moderate and difficult. These grades can differ depending on the fitness level and willingness of people. What one person finds easy may be difficult for the other.

Thus easy, moderate and difficult are relative terms which can change from person to person. Along with the distance the difficulty level of a trek is dependent on the kind of topography, elevation and ascents. Moreover weather is another important factor. A trek can be easy in winter but you can face challenges in summer. All treks cannot be done in a given season. Some treks are possible in summer and some in winter. Not all treks can be done throughout the year.

An easy trek has well-defined tracks and are not very physically challenging. They are just for fun and relaxation. Moreover they are near to civilization and you can return back easily if need arises. Basic food and assistance from locals are usually easily available. Anybody who walks regularly and is generally in good shape can attempt an easy trek.

In case of moderate treks you have to push yourself a little beyond your comfort zone. The terrains are narrower and more demanding. They require significant amount of uphill walking and a little bit of climbing even though not technical climbing. While on a moderate trek you are away from civilization with no easy escape routes.

On many moderate treks you may need to be independent with respect to food, water, and other emergency supplies like medicines and first aid. Only walking would not be enough for a moderate trek. Exercising along with walking can help you to build stamina and strength for a moderate trek. Some training is required if you wish to opt for a moderate trek.

Tough or challenging treks are those which require extremely high energy levels and stamina. They require great fitness, training and prior experience of trekking.

These treks are not for the inexperienced or the beginners. These treks require long uphill walks in difficult environments and conditions. They demand your stamina and determination. The area is mostly inaccessible and deserted therefore the trekkers need to be self-supporting and ready to face harsh conditions. The trekkers may have to walk on ice or through water; they may have to face strong winds and rain or extreme cold or heat depending on the weather.

A walk in the forest, a walk to the peak of the mountains or forts, a walk for photo shoots, a fishing trip or a camping experience can be included in a trek. Enjoying the flora and fauna in the forest is very pleasing and refreshing. The thrill of reaching the top of a fort or the peak of a mountain can motivate you and boost your energy. Everyone can choose a walk that suits them best. (Supriya Abhay Deshpande/  EzineArticles.com)

f you're running a blog, coming up with fresh ideas month after month isn't always easy. When you first start out, you may have hundreds of ideas that you can get to work on, but these will eventually run out and you'll have to think of more.
Image source socialsamosa
Image source socialsamosa


Constantly having a bank of ideas is great for your blogging productivity, so you're never left wondering what to write. Here are a few tips to get you going.

1. Ask Other People
Ask your friends, your family, or your current blog subscribers. You can get talking to anybody about the blog you're running and see what they have to say. Or just see what comes up in conversation when you talk about your niche topic. Even if you don't use their exact ideas, it's a good way to pick up some new thoughts and concepts.

2. Create a Big List
Sit down and create a huge list of everything you can possibly think of that relates to your blog. For example, if you're running a blog on furniture, you can write about decorating many different venues, such as wedding halls and churches, family homes and retirement homes, businesses and offices, shops and stores and everything in between. You can write about furnishing a place for the first time or buying new items.

Give your readers ideas about how to do things, when to do things and what they can buy to do certain things. And don't forget to start with the very basics, too. Even things that sound simple to you might be useful for readers who are complete beginners to your niche.

3. Read Other Blogs
You should never copy content from other blogs, but it's a great way to get some more ideas. General ideas can't be copyrighted, so unless you're taking something word for word or using somebody else's photographs, you don't need to give anybody credit.

You might not only get ideas about what to write about, but you could pick up some tips about how to structure your posts, how to make them more friendly or how to design the page to make it easier to read.

4. Use Books and Magazines
Books and magazines are great sources of blog post ideas. As with the previous tip, make sure you don't copy anything - simply use the books and magazines as inspiration. Sometimes all it takes is scanning a table of content to get the juices flowing. Magazines are also great for figuring out what's popular right now in your niche.

for more than a decade, homeowners have embraced going green in various ways. Now, a growing number of consumers are choosing American-made solar panels for their homes—and the solar installation industry is booming.

Currently, about 13 gigawatts of solar electric capacity have been installed nationwide—enough to power more than 2 million households. Underscoring this trend is that 82 percent of people who responded to a recent solar survey said they support making solar panels on American soil.

“We’ve all heard about the importance of manufacturing to the American economy,” said Robert Fortunato, whose California home hosts 26 solar panels made by SolarWorld in Hillsboro, Oregon. “We selected our U.S.-made solar system for its quality, reliability, and financial return and because we think it’s important to support American workers.”

To this end, solar installers and electricians offer a range of domestic products.
“We made a decision at PetersenDean to only source our solar products from North America. As a result, we’re supporting the American economy, supporting American workers and reinvesting those dollars back in America,” said Jim Petersen, founder of PetersenDean, a nationwide solar and roofing company.

According to industry experts, here are the top four reasons that homeowners select solar panels from American manufacturers:

• Quality and reliability. A residential solar system is, in effect, a power plant on your rooftop that is designed to last at least 25 years. Consumers trust American solar manufacturers to stand behind their product guarantees because these companies rank high in measures of quality, responsiveness to warranty claims, accessibility for customer service and compliance with safety requirements.

• Sustainability. For those Americans who are “greenies,” there is little logic in buying a solar system made in Asia and shipped on a diesel-burning cargo ship halfway around the world. Instead, homeowners are opting to buy select American-made solar panels, produced according to stringent environmental, labor and quality standards, to reduce environmental impact.

• Energy independence.
Solar power represents an important tool for achieving energy independence for the U.S. Just as people believe the nation should not have to rely on the Middle East for imported oil, many feel that America should not depend on foreign nations for solar technology and manufacturing.

• American job creation.
The U.S. solar manufacturing industry employs thousands of Americans across the country. Studies show that technology and manufacturing jobs, with comparatively high wages and benefits, are the types of jobs that the U.S. should aspire to create and maintain

So, you say you want to learn to throw a party worthy of the Kardashians? Well, admittedly, that’s asking a lot. After all, one of their more recent bashes featured synchronized swimmers – it was a poolside event – surprising guests with a routine straight out of a 1950s Esther Williams movie.

But take heart.

The Kardashian sisters – who seemingly never run out of mind-blowing ideas – didn’t think that party highlight up themselves. Linnea Johansson, author of “Perfect Parties: Tips and Advice from a New York Planner,” did. And even if you don’t have money to throw around, she says to apply the “same principle” of doing “something unexpected” at your event.

For more on how that translates into actionable advice, read on.

• Fun in finger foods. |Out: sit-down dinners. In: small plates and finger foods like the very trendy Russian-style tapas called zakuski. As far back as Tolstoy’s 19th century, the custom was to individually plate an array of what literally translates into “small bites” and eat them in a set order.

The key to really pulling it off, though, says Johansson, a noted chef herself, is to pair the zakuski with an authentic premium Russian vodka, which to her means Russian Standard Vodka. “It’s the number-one premium vodka in Russia, and it’s perfect for drinking neat or in cocktails, and excellently paired with food.”

Creativity shines in centerpieces
.
Why spend a fortune on store-bought white roses for your dinner table? Pick some pine cones and holly leaves while out strolling, say, throw in a few cinnamon sticks and clove-laden oranges, and you’ve got yourself a masterpiece so delicious-smelling that it doubles as an air freshener.

• Toast to great times. Russians certainly know how to drink vodka, and toasting is the perfect invitation to celebrate and party. The traditional way of toasting in Russia is continuous and lasts throughout the night, which can only lead to a great time!

• House cocktail to invite tastebuds. Even if your guests’ tastes lean more toward chips-and-dip than zakuski, Johansson says that vodka – used as the base for a custom cocktail like the one below – is “a definite crowd-pleaser.”

MAPLE & FIG COCKTAIL

  • 2 ounces Russian Standard Vodka
  • 1/2 ounce maple syrup
  • 2 ounces lemon juice
  • 1-ounce ginger beer
  • 1 fresh fig

Muddle the fruit and syrup in a shaker, add the lemon juice and Russian Standard Vodka. Add ice and shake well. Strain into a glass and top with ginger beer. Garnish with a slice of fig.

The holiday season is fast approaching. In anticipation of entertaining and gift-giving, now is the time of year we really start to think about wine. Sure, there will be tons of flashy packaging and labels to help find "the best", but have you ever stopped to think about what’s actually in your wine? Heads up: there could be more than you think.

The Modern Wine "Factory" Even under FDA regulations, US mass wine producers like many in California can include up to 70 additives in their wines. Colorings like "mega purple" or "ultra-red", synthetic fertilizers, tartaric acid, powdered tannins, and gum Arabic don’t even have to be disclosed on the label. Once again, consider California wines: overall, many aims for consistency year after year.

Mass producing wine in some parts of the world is more like a factory than a vineyard. Though there is something to be said for uniformity, a lot of the magic of winemaking is lost. It’s no surprise that all-natural and organic wines are gaining popularity year after year.

What’s Old Is New Again Not all wine regions use these artificial tactics. Natural winegrowing and winemaking are not new to Bordeaux. Not only has this region been making wine naturally for centuries, but they are also literally required to do so.

They believe in the art and science of maintaining the holistic health of the region as well as each individual estate’s ecosystem. Only nature determines the wine. Artificial enhancement or even irrigation is forbidden.In Bordeaux, it’s more than just the law.

It’s a passion for winemaking methods passed down for hundreds of years. It all starts with the "terroir"- the soil and unique climate conditions where the grapes are grown. Vineyards on two sides of the same hill can produce vastly different characteristics."Every year nature provides winemakers in Bordeaux a fresh canvas," says sommelier and wine expert Joel Prato.

"This relationship with nature is evident in the unique taste of each Bordeaux vintage." In a place like Bordeaux, the seasons also have a huge influence on the character of the vintage. Weather can make or break a year. For example, a 2013 Bordeaux is a rare sight as fluctuating weather conditions meant many vineyards didn’t have a crop to bottle.

Nature determines production, not factory settings. Making Music (and Wine) Making natural wine is not always easy. To combat the elements, innovative winemakers like Damien Landouar of Château Gaby are turning heads by introducing techniques like Genodics – playing music to the vineyards to boost their natural immunity.

When you can’t count on additives and chemicals, you have to be creative. His vines most likely have better taste in music than most people. Highly Rated, Naturally If you’re new to natural wines from places like Bordeaux or want to try a highly rated vintage from the region, here are some recommendations: Château Gaby (Canon Fronsac) – Grown on a 350-year-old vineyard, Château Gaby is truly Bordeaux’s best-kept secret.

This complex and well-structured merlot blend is ranked in the top 1 percent of all wines in the region by Vivino and given 92 points by Decanter Magazine. Château Auguste Rosé (Entre-deux-Mers) – Step aside Provence. Bordeaux is making a statement with this organic rosé. Racy, precise, and light on its feet, Château Auguste celebrates strawberries and tangerines with bright minerality.

Château Moya (Côtes de Castillon) – A picture of elegance, smooth and balanced. Taste how good organic can be with Château Moya. Awarded 96 points by Jancis Robinson, this wine is a heavenly pairing for delicate cheeses and fresh, seasonal dishes.

Château Du Parc (Saint Émilion Grand Cru) – Château Du Parc is grown on older vines in an appellation known for its wine since the days of Ancient Rome. This broad-shouldered and spicy blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc was given 94 points by James Suckling.

Financial Problems Often Faced by Young Professionals and Solutions to Overcome them - For young professionals, pursuing a career may be a priority. A good job with a high salary is certainly one of the biggest goals. Moreover, young professionals certainly still have a lot of energy and time to learn while developing their potential so that living conditions improve.

Now that the initial shock of the pandemic has started to wear off, it’s time to take a step back and really start planning. Everyone is living through an unprecedented time.

The uncertainty surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic is enough to rattle even the strictest saver. Things may feel that they are all out of your control, so focus on what you can control. First things first. Listen to healthcare professionals and follow guidelines to protect yourself and others.

If you are financially impacted by Covid-19 for any reason, there are steps you can take to help minimize that impact. Even if you have not yet been financially impacted by the current state of events, it is vital to either reassess your household budget or create one if you have not already.

Involve your family in this as much as you can. Just letting your family know you are thinking about the crisis and how you will respond can be enough to help ease some of the anxiety around the unknown. When you are looking at your crisis budget, identify which expenses are absolutely necessary and which are not. It is best to make the hard decisions now, even if you have a savings account built up, rather than wait until you are forced to make those decisions.

Focus on your rent or mortgage first. You need to keep a roof over your head if at all possible. With a situation as fluid as this, it is important to realize that there are resources available to help if needed and that those resources could change.

If you are ever in a situation in which you are unable to pay your rent or mortgage, contact your landlord or mortgage provider right away. Once you have the rent and mortgage covered, then move on to food, utilities, and down on to the more non-essential items.

In the event you are unable to make a debt payment, make sure you contact the creditor as soon as you know you will miss the payment. During this difficult time, many creditors are expanding the options available to those unable to make their monthly payments.

If you feel lost when it comes to making a budget, as many do, please reach out to a Certified Credit Counselor at Family Credit Management. Family Credit Management is a nonprofit credit counseling agency that has been helping consumers in difficult financial situations for more than 23 years.
