How to improve your health and look better at the same time

One of the biggest health problems in the western world today is obesity. People think that the amount of food is the problem but the real problem is processed food that has a quality lower than dog food. Eating a lot of quality food probably won't result in obesity like processed food does.

You won't hear me mention healthy food, quality food is healthy in at least 90% of the time, when eaten in moderate amounts of course. Eating 10 pounds of anything isn't really good for you, one of the common questions from people trying to lose weight is pretty standard, even the number.

They ask what are 5 foods that burn belly fat. The thing is, no food burns calories or fat, but there are certainly, with exercise of course foods that burn belly fat. The important thing to know is that the five foods that burn belly fat don't really exist, but certain foods can help.

The most important thing when you want to lose weight is adopting a healthy diet and at least some exercise. For the five foods that burn belly fat you should use fiber-rich foods, if you're eating white bread either drop it or start adopting whole-wheat bread. Eat a lot of veggies, instead of eating sweets adopt sweet fruit and instead of potato chips try some nuts.

There are actually a whole lots more than five foods that burn belly fat, but they don't do it alone, but with a good diet, some exercise and most important - consistency you should have no problem losing weight.

One important thing most people overlook is that you actually have to keep it up for a sustained period of time, you have to keep the diet and exercise at lest to some degree and you will drop weight, that's guaranteed.

Best online backup storage - iDrive Reivew

Most of us can't imagine living in  a world without personal computers, which is strange when one considers that they only became mainstream no more than 10 years ago. With all the benefits that came with computers which are so many that we could go on for days on just how many there are there have also been a few, well I wouldn't say annoyances but steps one has to take to keep sane.

I'm specifically talking about keeping your data secure. Computers are machines, they fail for whatever reason either mechanical or human error, but fact is they fail and that can result in a lot of headaches but it doesn't have to.

Backing up your data today is easier than ever, you don't even have to remember to do it, you can just use an online backup solution. One of the easiest solutions available these days is iDrive. If you take a look at an iDrive review you will see that the service basically allows you to backup your data into their servers online so you don't even have to remember to do it, it's done automatically for you.

The service you can get from iDrive is split up into a free and a paid one. The free service allows you to store up to two gigabytes of your data for free while the paid one you can pay monthly or yearly. The price will depend on how much data you want and need to store on their servers. While there is a seemingly endless number of these services I've taken a look at one or the other iDrive review and customers do seem to be very satisfied with their service.

Another thing that should but isn't a standard feature is to keep your files indefinitely. Meaning that if you're using iDrive your files will remain on their servers until you delete them.

Cigarette Smoking Facts And How They Harm You

It's one of the many cigarette smoking facts that they are dangerous for your health and the people around you. Among the dangers of smoking are lung cancer, nicotine addiction which in a worst case scenario can result in increased blood clotting, joint pain, increased blood pressure, tachycardia and so on.

Most people know these cigarette smoking facts among which is that cigarettes ultimately kill but they still smoke, why?
Well it isn't the same thing for everyone but usually smoking starts with peer pressure, everyone does it so you start as well, you want to belong to a group so you "have" to do it. Most likely you won't like it on the first try, but you again meet those smokers and you smoke again and you dislike it less and by the third smoke you start liking it.

Since you like it now you do it regularly and that's when the addiction starts. Nicotine addiction is one that's very hard to break because of the effect it has on our brain it keeps us calm. The other thing that's addictive specifically about the cigarette is that you have something in your hand, a lot of people start biting their nails when they're trying to quit smoking.

Another one of these interesting cigarette smoking facts is that 80-90% (80% in women, 90% in men) of the lung cancer deaths are a result of smoking. Most people wouldn't admit this usually they don't have a lot of compassion for people with lung cancer. They figure that it's their own fault, they smoked even though they knew that it has it's dangers they got cancers and they deserve to die. You will usually find a lot of more compassion for people with any other kind of cancer than lung cancer specifically because usually smokers get it.

How To Switch From Traditional To Electronic Cigarettes

If you've finally decided that you want to get rid of the dangerous cigarettes that you've been smoking for years but aren't quite ready to drop the nicotine addiction part a good idea to try out would be electronic cigarettes.

There are a lot of advantages when it comes to electronic cigarettes compared to traditional ones and not all are health related. The first advantage you will like is that you will save money, if you add a few numbers up you will see that a lot of money goes into cigarettes especially if you're a chain smoker. Electronic cigarettes are the much cheaper alternative; the nicotine fluid used in electronic cigarettes is much cheaper to traditional cigarettes.

The other advantage that will probably be enjoyed by the people around you, but maybe you will like it as well. One of the major cigarette problems is the odor, even if you're a non-smoker you spend 30 minutes in a room filled with smokers and everything on you will smell like cigarette, your clothes, your hair and you notice that when you get in a smoke free environment.

One of the best electronic cigarette companies to have emerged recently is v2 cigs. The company is good for a number of reasons, first of all their products are of good quality and will last you a long time. Second they have great customer service you get that "small company" feeling when you have a problem (which is rare but it happens).

Also v2 cigs has a great economy started kit as they call it. This is basically one of the cheapest ways to try out electronic cigarettes and is also great for those who are not really interested in long-term usage at this point but want to see what e-cigs are like. Another interesting thing is that they allow you to pick the flavor of the fluid in your started package.

How To And Why You Should Change Your Default Router Password

When you first buy a router it will have a default router password and username. While the usernames and passwords aren't the same for all routers out of the box one router brand usually has the same default router password for all its models.

The first thing you should do after setting the network up is changing the default router password. If you don't do this anyone who has access to the router either wireless or wired can go into your router and possibly they can even collect usernames and passwords on your network.

Usually changing the password is very straightforward, you just go to the default IP of your router this also like the default router password depends on the brand of your router but in most cases it is but other common default IPs are and

When you go to that address and provided that you used the correct one for your router you will most likely see a prompt that requests your username and default router password. The default password for your specific router will probably be in the manual but if you don't have the manual you can try admin, root or Administrator as the username and admin, 1234 as the password. It is also common that you don't have to enter anything, just click OK.

After you've logged in go to the Administrator panel and you will probably have a field somewhere that allows you to change your password. If you don't see it at first look around it has to be somewhere. IF you can't find it refer to your router's manual or if you don't have the manual at hand but have internet access you can just Google for the model of your router with manual behind it - for example: Linksys BEFW11S4 manual.

Big East Basketball Tournament

The Big East Men's Basketball Tournament is a championship tournament in the men's basketball. The winning team gets the automatic bid of the conference to NCAA's Men's Division I Basketball Championship. Starting with 1983 the tournament is being held in Madison Square Garden in New York City.

The tournament is the longest running conference in college basketball. Before 2009 only 12 teams were in the conference but starting with 2009 it was expanded to 16. The first 9 to 16 teams play first-round games and the 5 to 8 teams get a bye into the second round and four of the top teams get a double-bye into the quarter finals.

Also in 2009 the tournament had a game with six-overtimes, this was the quarterfinals game between the Connecticut Huskies and the Syracuse Orange, the Syracuse won the game with a score of 127 to 117. The overtimes made it the second-longest game in the history of the NCAA; the game started in the evening of March 12 and ended in the early morning hours of March 13.

For the seeding procedure the members are seeded based on their conference records. Games outside the Big East are ignored then tiers are broken down using tiebreaker rules. Usually the first two tiebreakers are very close and then the others are played against the next best conference team.

Something else that is noteworthy about the Big East conference is that it's the only conference had every of it's games broadcast on TV nationwide and in 2011 for the first time it was broadcast in 3D on the channel ESPN3D. Also in 2011 Connecticut was the first team in the Big East to ever win 5 games in a row in 5 days and win the championship.

Afghanistan War Facts

The Afghanistan War began after the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York on September 11, 2001. Shortly after the US would launch its war on terror and American and British armed forces would make it their goal to take Al-Qaeda, the terrorists responsible for the attack, down. The forces were on their way to Afghanistan with the objective of taking down the Taliban government and replacing it with a democratic one. Among the Afghanistan war facts that remained controversial is the legality of the invasion which is still disputed today.

In the first weeks alone the American and British forces had great success, and already during those first weeks Taliban leaders and officials started fleeing to neighboring Pakistan. Al-Qaeda's leader, Osama Bin Laden soon became the most wanted man on the FBIs most wanted list. The initial motivation to go to war was to bring Al-Qaeda members to justice. However the war has been going on for far longer than anyone expected as the Taliban have proven themselves strong opponents because of their advantages of knowing the land they're fighting in, their ability to conceal themselves among the locals and maybe most important of all their ability to wage guerrilla warfare. Among the prominent Afghanistan war facts are the civil casualties caused by the US forces in the country.

In 2011 under the Obama administration a team of Special Forces killed the leader of Al-Qaeda Osama Bin Laden. Because of the cost of this war, which increases with every year the US declared that they will be pulling out most troops in 2011, around 10 000 in total. Even though Bin Laden has been killed there are still reasons to why the US has to remain in Afghanistan, the main reason is that the current government under President Hamid Karzai can't handle the remaining Taliban groups which still regularly terrorize the people of Afghanistan with frequent attacks and bombings.
