Take a Leap Into the Unknown: 4 Exciting Bungee Jump Techniques!

Take a Leap Into the Unknown: 4 Exciting Bungee Jump Techniques!

For many, a bungee jump is a once-in-a-lifetime, adrenaline-filled activity that you’ll remember forever – and you’ll forever be able to tell people about your jump! There are many ways to skin a cat, and some of these bungee jump techniques will make your jump even more memorable. Whether you’re a seasoned jumper or will only take the plunge once in your life, there is a thrilling technique out there for you.
Feel Like You Can Fly Techniques!

 

The Swallow Dive is one of the most popular jump styles in use today, and for good reason! Especially beloved by adrenaline seekers, you have to take a big running jump off the platform with your arms stretched out as wide as possible (like a swallow). This will let you soar through the sky to the ground below. There will be a huge adrenaline rush as you feel like you’re flying through the air… and as an added bonus, as the cord begins stretching you will be pointing downwards – perfect for a smooth and easy deceleration.

Be aware: if the body harness you’re kitted out with has a front cord attachment, ensure you twist 180 degrees so by the time the cord tightens out you’re facing upwards. Don’t worry, your instructor will know all this! But the more you know before your jump, the more relaxed you’ll be before the big event.

The Bat Drop is a little trickier than the swallow dive, and much more daring! For this jump style you’ll have to be positioned hanging upside down (!!!) on the edge of the platform. Someone else will need to be holding your feet, and once they release you you’ll shoot off like a bat or vampire into the darkness of the night!

The Back Dive is another jump which is considered to be a little more difficult. You’ll really need to put your all into launching off the platform so that when you’re at the end of your fall, your head will be pointing straight down. Just like the swallow dive, be sure to be facing upwards at the end of your jump if you happen to be using a front-connected body harness.

The Elevator is a technique you’ll definitely have seen somewhere before. You simply step off the platform with your feet pointing down at the ground, and when you reach the end of the bungee you’ll be automatically flipped the right way round.

Top tip: only do the Elevator if you have access to a rubber (Kiwi/ Euro) cord to avoid hurting yourself and doing your ankles some serious harm!

Using Membership Software To Power WordPress

Not many new entrepreneurs starting an online business understand the benefits of using membership software or its implementation process. It’s far easier to sign up with an online mega-store, add a few products and copy-paste the widget code on to the website template. But webmasters who will be the most powerful monetization tools for websites.

The basic advantages include full payments instantly available in the seller’s bank account, without the cut of the sales being taken by the online mega-store. There will be no annual or monthly fees to pay either. Other benefits include versatile member management, multiple payment provider options and integration of third-party scripts including affiliate programs. It can also be used for managing newsletters and email lists.

The control and flexible choices available with membership software is another big plus point. Sellers can create any number of items and categorize them under any number of subscription levels. Some may have a specific type of content, while others may have less or more content. Members who sign up can choose which level they want to have access to. There may even be a level offering incremental content, with new content being added daily or weekly and members being billed accordingly.

When signing up with an online store, sellers can accept payments from customers through credit cards and maybe a couple of other payment gateways. This tool, however, has no such limitations since sellers can integrate just about any kind of payment processor. They can even accept payments via mobile phones or offer a “cash on delivery” option if they are selling products that can be delivered.

It’s also possible to integrate the member area with a CMS (content management system) and other traffic tools and scripts in use on the site. For example, if the CMS and affiliate program can be plugged into it, then visitors refer by a affiliate link or banner can be sent to a special landing page for that product. This page can include a preview and a call-to-action to encourage visitors to sign up as a member and log in to the member’s area to view the full content.

For webmasters, the administration is much easier and more powerful. The control panel can be securely accessed online using a web browser. Administrators just have to log in a couple of times a day using an admin password and manage users. This may include deleting users, changing passwords, sending newsletters and notifications, going through daily reports, and so on.

In some cases, the control panel can also be installed locally on a personal computer. The member-area script is still installed on the web server and offers password-protected access to members. Only the admin tool is locally installed and connects to the web server via an FTP connection. It can be used to remotely issue commands to the script and download or upload data as required.

In addition to all the benefits described above, the right choice of membership software will also make the website and its owner seem like a more professional outfit. Of course, all this ultimately depends on the availability of exclusive and original content that users find useful or interesting enough to renew their memberships. Once the site is capable of this, it becomes a self-sustaining growth engine as an old member of the newly added renew and new ones.

Why Procurement and Marketing Go Hand-in-Hand

 

Ever worked in a large organization? If so, you may have heard of procurement and marketing.

Procurement and marketing may be the same as two completely different things.

Believe it or not, procurement and marketing may be more similar than you think, especially when it comes to tendering.

For marketers who want to find a new tender, it can be difficult to get what you need from procurement.

Lucky for you, we’re here to help you combine procurement and marketing.

Let’s take a closer look at procurement and marketing and what it means for your company.
What is Procurement?

People may mistakenly think of procurement for purchases, and vice versa. And it may be easy to understand why.

Procurement involves vendor selection, setting up payment terms and purchasing goods and services. In most cases, procurement is an essential part of business strategy.

Often, the purchase is only one part of the procurement. This refers to buying goods and services, along with receiving or sending payments.

Although procurement is important, it is not possible to create or destroy the company itself.

To better understand the true value of procurement, let’s consider a study conducted by Hackett Group.

According to Forbes, the study shows that top procurement organizations spend 25 percent less on procurement than other companies.

What does this mean for businesses? You do not need to spend too much on getting the best results.

What is the Relationship Between Procurement and Marketing?

Conflict sometimes arises between procurement and marketing departments.

Procurement wants to help businesses maximize return on any investment – without exception.

Meanwhile, marketing requires procurement to help launch a campaign.

Marketers want to run a campaign and need money to do it. With a good relationship with procurement, marketing can get the money it needs.

How to Bridge the Gap Between Procurement and Marketing

With the right approach, marketing can be a new friend of procurement.

There are several ways to bridge the gap between procurement and marketing, among others:

Maintain open communication. Do not leave procurement or marketing in the dark. Maintain constant contact, and everyone will be able to keep up to date.
Make the procurement process simple. Long negotiations will not be useful for the marketing and procurement department. But a simple procurement process reduces stress for everyone.
Choose a value above the cost. What campaign costs are less important than the benefits they can make to a business. If procurement and marketing are value-focused, they can see closely how a campaign will help the company.
Building relationships Procurement and marketing want to help ordinary businesses become successful brands. Together, procurement and marketing can build trust and respectful relationships to help the company achieve its goals.
Procurement and marketing go hand in hand. If you take the time to build a bridge between procurement and marketing, your company can enjoy its benefits for years to come.

Sacred art meets sophisticated technology!

Sacred art meets sophisticated technology!

Multi-media entertainment studio Moment Factory creates a multi-sensory experience within Montreal’s grandiose Notre-Dame Basilica using sound, light and video projection-mapping.
Designed by Irish-American architect James O’Donnell in 1824, the Notre-Dame Basilica in Montreal is a picture of divinity. Now, as part of the city’s 375th anniversary celebrations, the iconic heritage landmark has been given a new, and luminous, lease of life. Montreal-based multimedia entertainment studio Moment Factory has created AURA, a transformative experience that propels visitors on a sacred journey using layers of augmented reality and spatial orchestral scoring within the walls of the Gothic Revival cathedral.

 

Since its opening in March 2017, AURA, which seats 600 people at a time, has been performed over 400 times. The 45-minute experience, presented in two acts, unfolds beneath the grandiose Basilica’s lofty rood screens. Before being seated, visitors are encouraged to discover and connect with sublime artworks highlighted by multimedia-enhanced installations on a self-led tour.

The second act, when the Basilica’s interior is bathed in a series of animated projections, is just as, if not more, breathtaking. Coupled with an orchestral composition interpreted by 30 musicians, 20 chorists and the Basilica’s resonant organ, the experience is soul-stirring.

Conceived in 2015 by the Moment Factory team and the cathedral’s managers, Fabrique de la Paroisse Notre-Dame, the project was produced by over 100 people. Bringing this vision to reality required an intensive year of musical composition and recording, four months of visual content production, 90 days of installation and a month of content integration and testing.

The technical rig of a total of 21 projectors — seven for the exploratory introduction and 14 for the second act — and 140 lights, four lasers and 20 mirrors is but one of the cogs in the machine.

To fully utilize the cathedral’s intricate architecture as a complex digital canvas, in a seamless manner, Moment Factory developed X-Agora, a specialized projection-mapping software that permits the creation of complex 3D maps of concave surfaces and ornate carvings. The video projections were also tuned to match the cathedral’s vibrant chromatic palette so as to enrich the existing details.

Introduction to Working Online: Set of Thoughts


First, do not panic!

I know there are many informations that need to be closed and I know that you feel your brain will explode. Think slowly and do not worry.

Here’s something I think might help. Good friend and great inspiration once said;

“What do you know the second you were born?”

I know, the question is crazy but actually I am very serious. On the day you are born, when you leave your mother’s womb, the first breath of air you take, what do you know?

Do you know how to talk … Walking? Dance? Song? Write? Reject?

Do you know what was the first time love? How about Moonlight Sonata? Can you play Sonata Moonlight of Beethoven? If you do so, you must be in the Guinness Book of World Records. Actually, if you do, I will LOVE YOU and shake your hand! Heck, I will also pay for a meal!

My point here is that we all do not know anything higher than the first time we are brought into this world. Our knowledge is only “instinct”. It has been taught for years that we learn to talk, guide, write, sing, dance, etc. We must “learn” first before this.

Our brains are empty, just waiting to be fed knowledge. We do not know anything. Instinctively we know how to breathe, who our mother is, you get what I say. This is something that needs to be always remembered by the crowd. Why? Because I also fall prey to some kind of wrong thinking.

When we are born, we are developed by our teachings and experiences with what we are surrounded. Our brains are like computers, they only know what they eat and what we face every day. This is our belief system. When we face negative, we tend to see things in a negative way and vice versa.

I can not tell you how many people I am competent with who told me “I can not do it.” “I do not know how to do that”, “I will never have money to do that”, and others. This type of thinking ALWAYS makes a person trapped. For some people, they are fine with it because there always seems to be fear when taking something that has not been done before. He is scary, I understand, believe me, everything is fine.

I started to run away from the opportunity because I was sure I could not do it. I do not think I can. “Where is this origin from?”, I do not know and before you know it, I live by believing that I can never be more than that time. I accidentally chose to get stuck. It is an easy path. The sound is crazy but that’s the process of my thinking.

I had to force myself out of this confusing belief but I still do not know how to do it until one day it comes to my mind … “What do you know the second that you were born?”. It is like the bright light of my life has finally changed! I answered myself, “Nothing”

Because of this awareness, I know that now I can do nothing. What I need to do is spend some time to learn.

Look, I’m not charging as a type of author. I’m sure any of these professional readings can easily show all my grammatical errors in a second, but the way I see them is as follows … if you can read the words I am taip and receive messages that I am conducting, then a comma or period What’s wrong is not the end of the world.

Do you think the richest people on this planet just know how to do what they do? Is their bank account full and willing to leave? No! In fact, the richest man, at one time, at first, did not know anything. What they do know is that it is time to learn and see where the path will take them and see where they are now.

How many stories of glory do you see lately from housewives, single parents, unemployed people and have lost everything, turn it around by learning new ways to earn income? They also do not know anything about it, but choose to try. They do not give any confidence. They start somewhere, learn how, and generate more income than they ever dreamed and keep doing this. Why, because they make a decision and try.

Deciding On A Vacuum Cleaner That Is Suited For Hardwood


Do not drive too much. Whilst sweeping, this can lead you to pull the dirt particles throughout the floor, scratching it. Once you’ve swept up remember to clean. Switch your canister often. Keep in mind, you are utilising the vacuum cleaner for effectiveness. A full vacuum bag is not only ineffective, it stinks very poor too. Canine or kitten “issues”? Clear it up quickly and precisely. Never expect to use your vacuum parts to simply pull up the mess. The chaos will get swept up in the floor cleaners hose pipe, and you will have a tough time removing it.

The wand connection, which comes with your vacuum solution, is great for getting rid of big particles from hardwood flooring. Possessing a hard wood flooring is lovely but sometimes it can be a job to provide for. So, here are some hardwood floor cleaning tips. Mop flooring using a spray bottle blended with standard water and floor cleanser. Now get a very clean damp cleaner and ground massaging in the cleanser. Doing this cleans along with treating your flooring.

Keep the vacuum cleaners wheels clean. Sometimes, grit can stick to the wheels and abrade the hardwood flooring. Try to invest some time and discover a cleaner that’s well suited for the sort of floor you have.

Always make sure that the vacuum bags are emptied before you begin to use it. You’ll get spillages; wipe them up immediately. Do not distribute the liquid, work from the outside to the center of the leak. Great attention should be used when vacuuming wood floor. This is especially valid if you are not specifically designed for wood floor coverings.

Once the hardwood has been cleansed, never polish it. This will make your flooring slippery, trigger accidents, and spoil your floor. Hardwood floor surfaces are usually used because of their appearance. They are manufactured from planks crashed from a bit of wood. These types of Wood bits are set on the flooring. Mop the floor by using a spray container with water and floor cleaner. Now get a very damp cleaner and mop the floor massaging in the cleaner. Doing this cleans as well as treating your floors. Dirt on a wood floors is much like sandpaper on apparent plastic. When you go walking through the floor, the soil abrades the safety finish on the hardwood which in turn makes it lifeless. Unless you get the dirt up, you’ll grind away the finish with every single footstep. Applying inappropriate or strong chemical compounds on the floor can make it change color and even ruin it completely.

Exactly like your automobile, some things are better dealt with using an expert. Easier to spend a few dollars for a yearly service then to get a new vacuum cleaner prematurely. As soon as the wood has been cleaned, never polish it. This can make your floor slippery, cause incidents, and destroy your flooring. The vacuum sweeper is an option you might like to think about. These sweepers are made in a simple way that maneuverability around sides.
