Western Zodiac goes Metric in 2020

Western Zodiac goes Metric in 2020 by The Social Science Editor, Prue Crouch In a controversial decision, the Secretariat of the International Astronomical Union based in Paris has announced the metricification of the Zodiac meaning that from March 21 2020 there will be 10 star signs rather than the current 12. Each of the remaining 10 star signs will be given an extra six or seven days depending on the length of the month that their influence starts in. This announcement is associated with another decision the union made in August 2006 when Pluto, the smallest planet in the solar system, was demoted from planet status to dwarf planet because it did not meet the three criteria to be a true planet. "To be a classified as a true planet the body must have cleared away other objects from its area of orbit," astrophysicist Nigel de Grasse Tyson said when contacted by the Australian. "Pluto has not cleared its orbit, and as a result, those Sun signs with a strong Pluto influence will be absorbed into other signs. The two signs to be delisted as part of the metrification process will be Capricorn and Aquarius", Professor de Grasse Tyson said. Newspaper astrologers are outraged at the change labelling it draconian and arbitrary. Stella Walters, staff Astrologer with the Illawarra Herald said: "This decision will disenfranchise 16% of our readership. How dare some French standards body kill off two of the Zodiac's star signs, star signs that have been with us for ov...

How Lasers Are Used For Treating Varicose Veins

Varicose veins are enlarged and swollen veins that are visible underneath the skin’s surface. Laser treatment is usually used to treat varicose veins and works by using a highly focused beam of light to heat the varicose veins to the point of scarring. This scarring damages the veins, causing them to wither and close, eventually dying and becoming no longer visible. There are two major types of laser treatments for varicose veins, these are: Simple Laser Treatment – this treatment is used for treating veins close to the surface of the skin, such as tiny varicose veins and spider veins. It works by applying a laser charge on the skin over which the varicose veins are visible. The objective is to scar the vein without affecting the skin. This treatment is usually safe, painless and highly effective, and is carried out over a number of sessions - usually every 6 to 12 weeks. The spacing is to minimise the effects of the lasers on the skin by giving it enough time to heal. For more details, see this article from lasrer veins brisbane. Endovenous Laser Treatment – this treatment is used for treating larger varicose veins, especially those buried deep beneath the skin surface. It works by making an incision on the skin through which a thin tube (catheter) is inserted. This catheter is then guided by an ultrasound so that it enters the varicose vein and is positioned correctly. Once in position, a laser is passed through the catheter and into the varicose vein and begins delivering ...

Jesters – Not Anyone’s Fools

A jester or fool was a type of entertainer and archetype in Medieval Europe, similar to a modern clown or comedian. With their colorful, eccentric outfits and repertoire of juggling, acrobatics and wit, jesters were a favorite of commoners and noblemen alike. Jesters were commonly travelling minstrels and acrobats, performing at village fairs and festivals. Those who were especially lucky or talented would be hired as court jesters, becoming a regular fixture of a noble or royal court. They would perform tricks, sing fables and satirize daily court life in front of the upper class. Court jesters were granted special privileges, and were allowed to speak in a way that other commoners were forbidden to. With this license to offend, court jesters served as a “voice of the people” in a culture with rigid social barriers. A court jester could openly mock and satirize their social betters without consequence, and were often favored by their lords as trusted advisors who could always speak their minds. Queen Elizabeth I is recorded as having scolding her court jester for not being harsh enough on her. A successful jester had to be skilled in both physical acts and possess a quick wit and knack for singing and storytelling. Jester performances were usually a mix of juggling, acrobatics and magic shows combined with fables, songs, jokes and political commentaries. There was no fixed costume for a jester, but costume usually involved loud, motley colours, bells and baubles and a ...

How to find a good Property Manager?

If you ask the right questions while shopping around for property managers, you will get a better idea of ​​who would make the best fit for your property. Ask them these questions when discussing your property to see if they are the right property manager for you: 1. What type of properties have you managed? Experience counts for a lot in property management, and it can separate the good ones from the ones you should steer away from. Experience in this field, however, isn’t just about the number of years worked in the field; it’s also about what type of properties they’ve managed. Depending on what type of property you have, you can either go with someone who specialises in managing properties like yours or someone who has more varied experience managing different types of properties. 2. How do you screen potential tenants? Screening potential tenants is one of the most important steps to property management, so the way they do this often reflects their level of service to your property. Ask them how they’ll match tenants to your property and what their process is like for finding tenants. This will give you a better idea of how they operate and what lengths they’ll go to to find the right match for your property. 3. How do you handle late payments by tenants? Finding tenants is just one phase of property management; the longer phase involves managing the tenancy itself. Asking them this question will show you what their management style is like and how they’ll...
