Experience Gifts – Ideas For Kids

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

Instead of giving a child in your life another useless piece of plastic or kit that will stay unopened, why not give them an experience that will really open their eyes and give them something to remember? An experience gift can do just that. Usually presented in the form of a gift certificate, an experience gift entitles the owner to a few hours or day of an experience.

These kinds of gifts come in a wide range of activities. No matter what the child or teen gift recipient is interested in, you can probably find an experience that relates to their interests.

Here are a few ideas to get you thinking about experience gifts for kids:

Craft classes.

Kids love to get messy and craft classes give them the opportunity to do just that. You can find craft classes at local art studios and children's centers. Art museums, art supply stores and community centers may also offer craft classes. You can purchase one-on-one lessons or enroll the child in a few months of classes, after speaking to his or her parents first, of course. The types of classes offered will depend on the studio or center. Younger children might enjoy painting while older children may find the challenge of pottery very exhilarating.

Behind-the-scenes tour.

A sneak peek at what goes on behind closed doors at the zoo or aquarium is a perfect experience gift. Call local attractions and see if they offer behind the scenes tours or other events that let children see their favorite attraction from a different perspective. For an add-along gift with the gift certificate, you could give the child a disposable camera.

Cooking classes.

You'd be surprised at how much children enjoy cooking, even at a young age. Local community centers, restaurants and children's centers may provide "Mom and Me" or "Young Chef" cooking classes that you could give as a gift. Make sure to ask about age restrictions and the equipment needed for the class. You could give an apron as an add-along gift to include with the gift certificate.

Horseback riding lessons.

Most children these days do not get the experience of being close to horses. You can make your gift recipient's day by signing him or her up for horseback riding lessons. Call around to horse farms in the area or search online for ranches that offer horseback riding lessons. Normally, unless the child is of a certain age, he or she has to be accompanied by an adult. You can find group lessons or private classes.

All of these ideas make wonderful gifts for kids who seem to have it all, or for children in your life who you want to honor with a special experience. Be sure to call around to find out what is available in your area.

Gas gift cards are issued by gasoline companies to accommodate their customers. These gift cards are often good for shopping not only for fuel but also non-fuel products. They may not be the most attractive gift, but they are one of the most popular gifts to give in the United States. This is because of the high cost of gas. Would not you be facilitated not to have to pay for your gas the next time you need some?

With gas prices on the rise, it's nice to know that you can charge your gas and not have to worry about paying immediately. Some gas stations offer discounts if their gas card is used. Other's offer points and are affiliated with major credit card companies. The company benefits because the card has to be used frequently to acquire enough points to redeem them for merchandise.

Not only are gasoline companies selling gift cards, but retailers like Wal-Mart and Sam's Club have also joined the ranks of retailers who offer them. You can use the card for any product Wal-Mart, and save three cents per gallon if you purchase gasoline in Wal-Mart or Sam's stations located in their lots. Most gasoline companies offer gas gift cards, and they can be purchased online. Depending on the card you purchase, an application may be necessary and a review of the buyer's credit.

Having said that, make sure that the gift you give to those who love to entertain is truly a class act. Read the list below for ten ideas that fall into that category.

1. In order for the entertainer to serve all the hors d'oeuvres he or she wants, the host or hostess needs a buffet stand. Sur la Table sells a 3 tier metal buffet stand for $ 29.95. The hostess can fill each tier with yummy trees that are easily accessible to his or her guests.

2. For those hosts and hostesses who like to serve wine at the ideal temperature, Crate and Barrel offers a wine bottle thermometer for only $ 8.95. This stainless steel reference guide wraps around a wine bottle like a cuff and directs the host or hostess on the appropriate serving temperature for any type of wine.

Confidentiality, Integrity, Availability and What it Means to You

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

Confidentiality

Confidentiality is ensuring that information is accessible only to those authorized to have access, regardless of where the information is stored or how it is accessed. Each employee within an organization has the responsibility to maintain the confidentiality of the information entrusted to them for job performance and this responsibility must be reinforced through awareness. An awareness training program should address at the minimum, the following confidentiality topics to ensure an acceptable level of knowledge is imparted upon organization employees.

a. Access Control

Access control is any mechanism used for controlling which resources a user can access and the tasks which can be implemented with the accessed resources. Passwords and biometrics are two methods of access control that can be used individually or in combination to limited access to resources.

b. Passwords

Passwords and their safekeeping are a fundamental element of system and network security and are of key interest to hackers. An intruder in the organization's physical area may check under keyboards and in drawers to find passwords that have been written down and then use it to gain access to private information. Password protection can be augmented by additional security measures such as smart cards and biometric identification systems. Employees need to be taught on password creation and handling best practices.

c. Biometrics

Biometric technology can identify individuals based on the physical characteristics of human body parts. The primary biometric technologies in use are retina scanning, facial recognition, voice recognition, and fingerprint scanning. A sample is submitted by a user requesting access and compared to a database for a match with access permissions. Biometric information is difficult to duplicate and when used in conjunction other access methods such as passwords and badges creates a very good defense against unauthorized access to organizational resources.

d. Encryption

Encryption is any process that converts readable (plaintext) data into secret code (ciphertext) to prevent unauthorized disclosure of the information. It can be used in Internet transactions, e-mail, and wireless networking. An encryption algorithm is a mathematical procedure that scrambles information to make it unreadable to unauthorized parties. Encryption has become the foundation of securing networks, communications systems, and online transactions. Employees should utilize encryption whenever possible to ensure security.

e. Privacy

Privacy is the prevention of confidential or personal information from being viewed by unauthorized parties and the control over its collection, use, and distribution. The terms privacy and confidentiality can be used interchangeably. Maintenance of privacy is essential to prevent unauthorized disclosure which can lead to identity theft or other issues.

f. Ethics

Employees should be given clear instruction, via policy, on what the organization considers acceptable behavior and should also be informed of the processes in place for clarification of ethical concerns and for disclosure of unethical activities.

Data Integrity

Data Integrity is defined as safeguarding the accuracy and completeness of information and processing methods from intentional, unauthorized, or incidental changes. Maintaining data integrity is essential to the privacy, security, and reliability of business data. Integrity of data can be compromised by malicious users, hackers, software errors, computer virus infections, hardware component failures, and by human error in entering or transferring data. Mitigating data integrity risks can allow for rapid recovery of data. Employees can mitigate risk by regular data backups and off-site secure storage of backup media, integrity monitoring tools, and encryption.

a. Configuration Management

Configuration or change management is a process to introduce changes into an information technology environment. Change in an environment can introduce new vulnerabilities and by the process of configuration management changes can be implemented in a documented, systematic, monitored, and reversible manner. Formalized configuration management processes should be implemented by organizations and followed by employees.

b. Configuration Auditing

Configuration auditing involves the verification that only approved changes have been made to systems. Auditing also verifies that the configuration management procedures are adhered to by employees and that all settings are documented. Auditing to actively monitor systems and log changes for reconciliation with configuration management documentation can be performed either manually or automated with the use of specialized systems.

Availability

Availability is ensuring that authorized users have access to information and associated assets when required. This can be accomplished utilizing data backup plans, disaster recovery plans, and business continuity / recovery plans. Employees should be trained in their responsibilities as it relates to data backups, disaster recovery, and business continuity.

a. Data Backup Plan

Data backups are an essential part of information security and an organization must be able to restore data in the event of data corruption or hardware failure. Backups should be done on a regular basis and the frequency is dependent upon how much data an organization is willing to lose in the event of loss (Recovery Point Objective). The backup media should be stored in a secure location, possibly off-site, which is not exposed to the same hazards as the primary data. Backups should also be periodically restored to test systems to ensure that the process is functioning properly and within the specified time frame (Recovery Time Objective) before the need for the backup actually arises.

b. Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP)

A DRP is a plan that is used to recover quickly after a disaster with a minimum of impact to the organization. DR planning should be part of the initial stage of implementing IT systems. DR plans are developed in response to risk assessments and designed to mitigate those risks. Risk assessments determine the frequency and extent of potential disasters; this will allow an organization to decide which technologies to implement to achieve an appropriate level of recovery. External audits can be valuable to discover deficiencies, although an organization's DRP can never be fully tested until a disaster actually occurs.

c. Business Continuity Plan or Business Resumption Plan

The business continuity plan (BCP), sometimes called a business reduction plan (BRP), is an essential part of a disaster recovery plan. This is a plan that details, step-by-step, how to continue or quickly resume normal business after a disaster occurs in a methodical manner. The BCP must also identify employees responsible for implementing the various plan components and these employees should receive clear instruction on their responsibilities in the event of a disaster. The plan must be regularly revised to ensure that any changes to business processes are reflected in the BCP.

Rubber Clothing – Why Wear It?

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

It's an intriguing question, why wear rubber?

First of all, I guess it's good to start with what is rubber?

Rubber is a natural substance, made from the sap of the rubber tree. It's collected, and treated, rolled flat into sheets and then "vulcanised" which basically means that they add sulfur and cook it in an oven!

Why make clothing from it?

Well, why not! It's just like any other material, it can be sewn, but more likely it's glued together to make garments. The glues used are very strong, as strong as the material it's bonding together. Rubber used to be seen as an "underground" material to make clothes from, for fetishists only really, but now it's getting more mainstream, it's commonly used in Film and TV to either convey "technology" or "futurism" or even "fetishism" .

An example of rubber being used in films extensively would be The Matrix Trilogy. Most of Trinity's clothing in that was made by Reactor Rubberwear (www.rubber.com.au) as a lot of the matrix was actually filmed in Australia.

So come on, why would I wear it?

Because it feels nice, it makes you look sexy, and pulls you in! Well those are not the only reasons, but they're good ones! If you're just thinking about getting into rubber, it might be an idea to start with something easy, and small, like Latex Shorts or a Rubber Bikini, these are easy to slip into and you'll know what it feels like to wear it, then move onto something a bit bigger and better!

If you've never tried it before, you must also be aware that you have to use some kind of 'lubricant' to get into rubber, usually sprinkling the inside with talcum powder will do the job. Once it's on, you have to give it a nice shine with some latex shine spray. Spray it directly into a cloth and wipe over the rubber with the cloth (saves getting shine spray everywhere!), Now your latex is looking shiny and you'll be looking sexy!

Once you've got this rubber thing, you can start looking at other garments such as catsuits, these are really sexy, they cover you from next to toe in rubber, and look like a second skin, basically you can reveal everything without revealing everything, and be covered in your favorite material. They come in a variety of styles, can come with feet or no feet, back zip or front zip, the choice is yours! They can be tricky to get on (use plenty of talc), but once on you'll feel really sexy!

What Is An Oxford Shoe And Are They Fashionable Today?

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

An oxford is a basic shoe constructed from heavy leather that laces up. The shoe originated in Ireland and Scotland. Historically they were made from untanned leather and were something plain. Oxfords of today are created in a variety of styles and are made from many different kinds of leather such as suede or tanned leather and even synthetic material. Oxford shoes are usually considered a dress or business shoe for both men and sometimes even for women. Contemporary oxfords are shoes that do not come above the ankle and most have a piece of leather carefully stitched over the upper. These are sometimes referred to as oxford caps or toe car oxfords. A dictionary definition of an oxford is, "an esthetically elegant style with closed lacing that typically comes in plain, full-brogue and semi-brogue versions."

There are five major categories of oxfords: Bluchers, Balmorals, Saddle Shoes, Kilties and Wingtips. Bluchers oxfords are open-laced leather shoes which have the sides of the shoe sewn onto the front. They appear to have four distinct segments. Shoes in this style with leather soles are often used for jazz dancing. Balmorals are close-laced shoes meaning the laces are not seen as they are under the smooth tongue flap. They appear very streamlined and almost seamless.

Saddle Shoes are oxfords with a piece of leather sewed on them in the shape of a horse's saddle, the saddle being either a different type or color of leather than the base of the shoe. The most popular and well-known variety are black and white. Another variety of men's oxfords are the Kilties. They are more detailed in their design and have a fringed leather tongue that covers both the laces and the eyelets. One of the most popular types of oxford is the Wingtip. This type of fashionable men's oxford derives its name from the toe broogging (leather embroidery) which resembles the spread wings of a bird. The most formal of the oxford family are the black leather close-laced oxford known as Balmorals. They look smashing with a suit and tie for any occasion. Black is more formal and brown oxfords can be paired with a sportier tweed jacket and slacks.

For women, oxfords have never been more fun or fashionable than they are today. Women can choose from a multitude of styles and colors, from casual saddle shoes to comfort oxfords, fashion oxfords, hiking oxfords and professional types of oxfords. Casual saddle shoes for women feature a traditional split-suede buck, a cushion crepe sole and a comfortable heel. These days they move beyond the traditional black and white to pretty combinations of pastel and other fashion forward colors. Comfort oxfords are sporty shoes with a leather lining, a removable cushion insole and a slip resistant sole. Fashion oxfords come in either platform sneakers or athletic-inspired sports shoes and have a cushioned insole, suede uppers and a lightweight flexible rubber sole. Hiking oxfords are rugged and versatile sometimes with reinforced steel toes, water-resistant uppers and slip-resistant soles.

There is an oxford for every man, woman, child and occasion. You probably have some in your closet right now. The oxford has been around for centuries and there is no sign of their popularity changing any time soon.
