Top 4 Ways of Getting Rid of Skin Tags at Home

You can always get a doctor to get rid of your skin tags; however, because it is generally considered a cosmetic problem, many insurance companies won’t cover the procedure. This leaves you paying a large bill for what is considered a fairly simple process. Before you head off to the doctors office, why not try these simple home methods for getting rid of skin tags. The first option you have for getting rid of your skin tags is to simply cut them off. It is important to note when doing this that there is a serious risk of infection if you use this method improperly. You should not only use brand new implements for this procedure, but you should also sterilize them first. You can clean them either by soaking them in a sanitizer (the kind you clean yourself with, not your house) or putting them in fire for a minute or so. Just be sure to let them cool first if you put them in fire. You can clip off the skin tags with small scissors, but you may find it easier to use nail clippers. Simply snip the tag off at the bottom near the healthy skin. This sounds like it hurts a lot, but is generally not too painful. Be sure to have cotton balls or bandages around though, just in case you do bleed some....

ESL Vs Bilingual Teaching

After what it may appear at first glance, ESL (English as a Second Language) and bilingual teaching are quite different. They both involve learning English, but this is where the similarities stop. This article will examine both types of education. ESL English as a Second Language training is based around bringing a student up to speed in English. It usually involves classes that are related only to the subject of the English language and is almost always carried out in that language. This is probably the fastest method of learning English since it requires almost total immersion for the period of the class, causing the student to start thinking in the language he or she is learning. ESL classes may be rented out one on one, in small groups or in a proper classroom setting with up to 50 students sitting in. Depending on the language level of the students, the teacher will offer instruction and examples of each part of speech. A large part of early lessons typically includes vocabulary to help students reach the point where they can actively participate in discussions. Part of the reason ESL classes are so popular is because they are almost inevitably taught in English, forcing the students to learn the language if they want to continue. It is focused specifically on learning English and no other subjects are involved. However, some...

The Master Skill of Coaching: Building Rapport

The master skill of coaching is building rapport; without it all the other skills become increasingly redundant. In building rapport it is useful to think of a three step process: knowing you, liking you and finally trusting you. This is as true in coaching as it is in sales; for ultimately we are all into selling our ability to influence others. Are you conscious of building rapport, especially when you meet new people or when working with a client? How do you build rapport? What steps do you take? KNOWING YOU Start with the body: smile, introduce yourself and what you do, and then thank them for their time in speaking with you. That sets a scene for ‘knowing you’. Clearly, how you introduce yourself is critical: one has to think not about overloading people with ‘me’ statements and assertions designed to inflate one’s own importance; but, more significantly, to excite curiosity about you and what you do, or enable them to see how talking to you will benefit them. The principles of physically meeting somebody so that one can say one ‘knows’ them are also true online: we create a persona online and this too needs to be welcoming, warm and more about the client than the self. LIKING YOU For them – the client – then to like you there are five triggers which can increase liking....

10 Ways to Treat Endometriosis Naturally

What is endometriosis? Endometriosis is a painful condition in which endometrial tissue, which lines the uterus, can appear in the pelvic cavity and elsewhere in the body where it doesn’t belong. Endometriosis is one of the most frequent diseases in gyneacology, affecting 15-20% of women in their reproductive life, contributing to 5% cases of infertility. Scientists do not know exactly how the tissue ends up where it doesn’t belong but there are a number of theories which I mention below. Regardless of where it is located this endometrial tissue will behave in the same way as the uterus lining by responding to monthly cycling of hormones and bleeds during menstruation. In the case of Endometriosis, because the shed endometrial tissue and blood in other parts of the body can not leave the body through the vagina as the menstrual blood can, it forms scar tissue and painful adhesions. Endometrial growths are most commonly found in the pelvic cavity and can grow on ovaries, pelvic ligaments, tubes, bowel and bladder. There are a few theories as to how the tissue manages to migrate. Some suggesting retrograde flow of menstrual blood and seeding or attaching to other tissues, while others suggest endometrial cells being laid down in the wrong places during the embryologic development of the foetus. This theory emerged as it could not be explained how endometrial tissue reached the...

Build Trust With Text Messages – How Text Messages Can Make a Girl Like You

Did you know that text messages can build trust in a relationship? Often we think of text messages as less intimate forms of communication. Surprisingly, if you use it right, it can plant seeds of care and rapport that can help build trust and show her that you are thinking about her. Here are ways in which text messages can build trust. First off, texts show her that you keep her in mind. When someone gets a text, it reminds them of the person who sent it. This has a couple of effects. First, it shows her that you were thinking about her and wanted to communicate with her, which is a compliment. More importantly, studies show that the more we are exposed to someone, the more we are inclined to like them. Even better, if you get her curious through texts, she may even start chasing you a little. This shifts her mentality because, the more she invests in you, the more she trusts you. It’s helpful to think of texts as icing on the cake. They do not build the relationship, but they tip the scale in your favor. By making her aware of you, you become a familiar name in her mind, which always helps. And believe me that these little things make a big difference. One side note is that you do want to make...
