1. IT Contractor versus IT Consultant - What's the Difference?

Business & Work - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 08:53:16
My name is Pandora. I'm dictating this from the landing that leads to the loft of my Palace.

Pets & Animals - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 08:52:48

Healthy Living - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 08:52:48
After many years successfully consulting in the USA, in late 2006 I moved to England. Being from another culture has been both an advantage and a disadvantage. Thank heaven we speak the same language--or do we?
This lens has been getting overstuffed with material, much of which is about living h...
6. Surgery Anesthesia for CFS / CFIDS / M.E. Patients
Business & Work - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 08:54:57

Even when it is all built in one project, we r...
8. Are All Database Engines Really The Same?
Pets & Animals - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 09:00:25
Everywhere you look nowadays, you find a database: mailing lists, customer profiles, wedding organization, routing toll free telephone calls, tracking inventory... Some are small and simple. Some are huge and complicated.
Each database runs in a database management system (DBMS), sometimes calle...
9. International Forms and Methods of Payment
Computers & Electronics - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 08:53:14
How to pay or be paid becomes a crucial choice as soon as you begin doing business across borders. When you do business internationally, there are ways of paying that you might never hear about when doing business in just one country. Some methods require extending credit. Chasing payment when so...
10. Common Headache Triggers
Business & Work - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 08:53:19

11. First Steps to a Successful Computer Project
Healthy Living - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 09:04:25

12. Grapefruit Interactions with Drugs
Computers & Electronics - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 09:00:22
Grapefruit juice can change how fast you absorb medicine and how readily your body can use the medicine (which is called bioavailability).

13. Rentals and Real Estate in Chattanooga
Healthy Living - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 08:54:59
This is the Walnut Street Bridge over the Tennessee River at downtown Chattanooga. Early every summer, about a mile of the downtown riverfront is closed to vehicle traffic for a nine-day music festival called Riverbend. A couple of the five simultaneously operating music stages are located at spo...
14. How British Can You Be? (Quiz)
Business & Work - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 08:52:58
Have you been reading my lenses about what it's like to be an American living and doing business in England? That will help you with this quiz, but it won't give you all the answers!
Settle in and see how well you know the British. It's fun in the privacy of your home (and can earn you a bunch o...
15. Staying in Touch During a Health Crisis
Culture & Society - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 08:52:31
It is no longer necessary for someone to spend an hour or so telephoning family and friends with updates when you are going through a medical ordeal. Modern technology can make it much easier to stay in touch!
You don't have to put your sensitive medical updates in Facebook where everyone there ...
16. Coping with Back Surgery
Healthy Living - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 08:51:28
My perspective is as caregiver for my mother when she went through this. I should add that the hip joint on the same side affected by her stenosis was disintegrating around the time she underwent her back surgery. The bad hip greatly impaired her recovery from her lumbar operation.

Healthy Living - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 09:04:25
In late 2006 I moved to England and in early 2013 I became a dual citizen. Being originally from another culture has been both an advantage and a disadvantage. Thank heaven we speak the same language--or do we?
My lens about doing business as a Texan in England is overflowing. I've been shoving ...
18. Consulting and Services, Including Mission Critical IT
Travel & Places - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 08:52:48

articles you can republish at no charge and with lenses that introduce you to IT basics such as how to choose the right technology for your needs
19. CFS / CFIDS / M.E. versus Post Viral Fatigue Syndrome (PVFS) / Post-Polio
Computers & Electronics - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 08:54:59
While a retroviral agent makes a great deal of sense as the primary trigger, there are other possibilities--and because diagnostic criteria have been so muddled, even when the cause is pinned down, many people with this diagnosis might really have been stricken by something else.
20. How a USA Business can Help a Charity Without Giving Money
Healthy Living - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 08:53:16

Nonprofits - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 08:54:59
If you have been hearing news about fledgling progress in Burma by Aung Sn Suu Kyi's movement, watching this movie can help you understand what the fuss is about even though the film is classified as fiction, not a documentary. It's a powerful movie anyway, but especially relevant now.
Laura is ...
22. Bonnie D Huval Lensography
Entertainment & Media - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 09:04:26

Squidoo Community - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 09:00:24

24. How to Build Pandora's Palace for Guinea Pigs
Healthy Living - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 08:54:59
My name is Pandora. I'm dictating this from the landing that leads to the loft of my Palace. There are many ways to build nice homes for the guinea pigs who live with you, but Xena and I like my Palace best. We decided to tell you how it is built so you can make one for your piggies too.

Pets & Animals - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 09:00:22

26. AntiVirus, AntiSpam, AntiLeak, AntiOutage - Email Safeguards in a Nutshell
Music - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 08:53:16

When email is only a way of exchanging notes with friends and f...
27. Travel Cost Wisdom
Computers & Electronics - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 08:52:48
You made the big sale, and it looks great... until you realize travel costs are going to eat you alive. That hurts, especially when you're a small business. It's awful when times are bad and margins are poor, or when (as in this image) you unexpectedly have to use a more expensive mode of transpo...
28. Voting in the USA While Living Abroad
Business & Work - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 08:54:59
You don't have much representation, but you still have the right to vote--most importantly, you can vote in Presidential elections. But to do so, you can't wait until the last minute. You have to act well in advance. Hop to it so you can vote in the November election!
As an American living abroa...
29. USA Section 8 Subsidies - A Renter's View
Culture & Society - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 09:04:25
Section 8 subsidizes rent for some low-income people. Many landlords do not accept tenants who get Section 8 rent subsidies. In some cases, it's a deliberate decision. The landlord has to deal with extra bureaucratic paperwork and the property must pass inspections that may be more demanding than...
30. Find Work by Cleaning Up
Business & Work - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 09:00:30
Does it seem like nobody is buying anything, hiring for anything, or contracting for anything? Do you wonder what you can do for a living in a dreadful economy? Some people thrive even in a bad business climate. One way to do it is by cleaning up messes that absolutely must be cleaned up. Look fo...
31. State of the Art in Lighting
Business & Work - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 14:31:17
What kind of light do we get from each type of artificial electric lighting? Why does so much of it look peculiar to our eyes? Does the newest lighting promise to reach a point where it can look more natural than what we've had up to now?
There are lots of different shades of "normal" room light...
32. Bone Loss and Osteoporosis
Home & Garden - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 08:53:16
You might expect that bone would be a straightforward thing to understand. You may think it is just that hard stuff keeping you from being a blob of jelly. Not so! Bone is involved with metabolism, producing immune system cells, and more. Although this lens cannot give you a complete medical educ...
33. USA Section 8 Subsidies - A Landlord's View
healthy-living - Sat, 21 Jan 2012 13:09:45
Section 8 subsidizes rent for some low-income people. The landlord has to deal with extra bureaucratic paperwork and the property must pass inspections that may be more demanding than for local housing codes. Why put up with that? Because of the money! Every month, the government's portion of the...
