Have Access to Online Shopping to Satisfy Your Needs


Ashley Bruce

Where do you usually choose to buy what you want in daily life? As for this question, some people will say that they usually visit actual stores to meet their needs; other people will say that they love to have access to online stores to satisfy their needs. Of course, you can get what you want through these two ways. But before you choose one place to buy products, have you ever make a comparison with the two places and choose the more profitable one to do the shopping? Personally speaking, compared with actual stores, online stores are more beneficial to you.

The first benefit you can enjoy is the convenience of online shopping. When you have access to online shopping, you are permitted to do the shopping at any place. For example, you can buy something online at your home, dormitory, classroom and so on. Therefore, it is not strange for you to see that a lot of people can manage to buy products in some public places, such as coffee bar, restaurants. In addition, you can also choose any time to do shopping online. All the online stores will never be closed even during the midnight or some festivals. Therefore, you do not need to set your work aside so as to spare time buying your favorite products.

The second benefit is that you can buy whatever you want online with the least time. Online stores will provide you with all kinds of products. For example, you can buy electronics, household products, clothing, and handbags and so on over the internet. Most importantly, you can spend just a few minutes and then buy all these products together. The reason is that you can browse different online stores at the same time and then choose your wanted products. After you have spotted your favorite products, you just need to add them into the purchase cart. And then, you can pay for all of them at the same time.

The third benefit is that online shopping will help you get cheap products easily. With fierce competition and low cost of running business, online retailers have to sell their products at a lower price, although they are unwilling to do so. In addition, you can also reduce the price of products with the help of online


. Maybe it is difficult to find coupons in real life. However, it is really easy for you to find valid coupons for your wanted products on the internet. Besides, you can also buy cheap products through other ways, such as the clearance section and group-buying activities. Therefore, if you spend some time finding cheap products consciously, you will make it.

Two die in two-car crash near Connel, Scotland
No Comments »

Friday, August 2, 2013

A man and a woman have been killed in a road traffic accident near Connel in the west of Scotland. Seven people, including three children, were also injured in the head-on collision on the A85 road in Argyll at approximately 1830 BST (1730 UTC) yesterday.

A 74-year-old female passenger of a blue Honda CRV and a 32-year-old male passenger of a blue Vauxhall Vectra died at the scene of the crash. The Vauxhall driver, a 32-year-old woman, was transported by helicopter to Glasgow’s Southern General Hospital, where she is reportedly in a critical albeit stable condition.

Three child passengers in the Vauxhall, aged fourteen, five and two, were taken to Oban Hospital and given treatment for minor injuries, as were the Honda’s 51-year-old female driver and two female passengers aged 49 and 46.

A Scottish Fire and Rescue Service spokesperson said hydraulic cutting equipment was used during rescue efforts. “Ambulance personnel and police officers worked closely with our team throughout the incident but sadly one passenger from each car lost their life”, the spokesperson continued. “The thoughts of all emergency responders who were at the scene will be with the casualties and their loved ones as they attempt to come to terms with what has happened.”

Police have appealed for potential witnesses to contact them.

New Mars Orbiter arrives for launch

New Mars Orbiter arrives for launch
No Comments »

Wednesday, May 4, 2005

NASA‘s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO), the latest robotic spacecraft destined for Mars, arrived at Kennedy Space Center‘s Shuttle Landing Facility on April 30 aboard a C-17 cargo plane and was delivered to the Payload Hazardous Servicing Facility to begin processing. Launching is scheduled for August 10, 2005.

With a mission time line through 2010, the MRO will conduct studies of the Martian atmosphere, surface and subsurface in far greater detail than previous missions. Possible landing sites for future Mars landings will be evaluated and the orbiter will also act as a high-data-rate communications relay for surface missions.

“Great work by a talented team has brought Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter to this milestone in our progress toward a successful mission,” said Jim Graf of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) project manager for the mission.

Multiple mechanical assembly operations and electrical tests are scheduled to verify the craft’s readiness for launch. A May test to verify communication abilities through NASA’s Deep Space Network will be conducted and in June deployment of the high gain communications antenna will be tested. A deployment test is also scheduled for the Orbiter’s large solar arrays.

The MRO will be filled with hydrazine fuel in July for its “Mars orbit insertion burn” which reduces the craft’s velocity and places it in orbit about the red planet. July 26 will see the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter installed in an Atlas V rocket fairing for final assembly with the rocket on July 29.

After the scheduled launch, the MRO will spend seven months cruising to Mars and another six months aerobraking after orbital insertion. A variety of scientific instruments on board will be used to search for geological evidence of past seas, ancient shorelines.The craft was built near Denver by Lockheed Martin Space Systems which also supplies the Atlas V launch vehicle.

The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter mission is managed by JPL, a division of the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, for the NASA Science Mission Directorate, Washington. Lockheed Martin Space Systems is the prime contractor for the project. International Launch Services, a Lockheed Martin joint venture, and Lockheed Martin Space Systems are providing launch services for the mission.

Friday, November 7, 2014Albuquerque, New Mexico —Online entertainment is a booming market, and plenty of players are making their play; back in March of this year The Walt Disney Company bought the multi-channel network Maker Studios. What is web entertainment, and the arts therein? And, who are the people venturing into this field? Wikinews interviewed Mario Lucero and Isabel Ruiz, the founders of Heaven Sent Gaming, a small entertainment team. This group has been responsible for several publications, within several different media formats; one successful example was aywv, a gaming news website, which was #1 in Gaming on YouTube in 2009, from September to November; Heaven Sent Gaming was also the subject of a referential book, released in 2014, entitled Internet Legends – Heaven Sent Gaming.

Should You Get Driveway Repair In Burnsville, Mn, Or Is It Better To Get A New Driveway?

No Comments »


If your driveway has cracked, developed potholes or suffered other damage, your first urge will likely be to get driveway repair in Burnsville, MN. This is a good thing to do as long as there is a proper base for the pavement to rest on. A good, stable base made of the right subsoils is essential for the long-term survival of any pavement surface. This is especially true in Minnesota, where harsh weather conditions will cause shifting in less-than-ideal substrates.

For this reason, it is often better to replace a driveway instead of repairing it. Resurfacing or patching asphalt or concrete won’t work if the substrate is just going to shift and break the surface as soon as the weather changes. Instead, the job would have to be done on an annual basis, and this will make the maintenance cost as much as the payments for a new driveway. Therefore, professional companies will recommend driveway replacement if they suspect that the actual problem is in the underlying soil.

When you get a driveway replaced by a competent contractor, it’ll fix far more than the top layer of pavement. The old drive will be removed so that the subsoil is exposed. The inadequate driveway foundation will then be removed and replaced with good, stable subsoils. This new foundation will then be packed hard with professional equipment like steamrollers so that it can withstand seasonal changes, heavy rainstorms, and other environmental stresses. Finally, new asphalt will be put down. Since the base will now be stable, the new asphalt will rarely need driveway repair in Burnsville, MN.

Once a new asphalt driveway is installed, it will need some basic maintenance even though it’ll have a good base. Sealing is the most common type of upkeep that is required. This keeps the pavement looking nice, but its real function is even more important. It’ll keep water and ice from getting into the pores of the asphalt and causing surface deterioration. It will also protect your driveway from some stains and from deterioration caused by leaked automotive fluids. With a proper base and regular maintenance, your driveway will last for years without needing any major repairs.

One year on: Egyptians mark anniversary of protests that toppled Mubarak

One year on: Egyptians mark anniversary of protests that toppled Mubarak
No Comments »

Wednesday, January 25, 2012

Across Egypt hundreds of thousands have taken to the streets for the day, marking exactly one year since the outbreak of protests leading to 83-year-old longstanding ruler Hosni Mubarak’s downfall. The country’s decades-long emergency rule was partially lifted this week; meanwhile, a possible economic meltdown looms and a newly-elected parliament held their first meeting on Monday.

Despite the new parliament, military rule introduced following Mubarak’s fall last spring remains. Echoing the demands from a year ago, some protesters are demanding the military relinquish power; there are doubts an elected civilian leader will be permitted to replace the army.

The brief unity against Mubarak has since fragmented, with Secularists and Islamists marking the revolution’s anniversary splitting to opposing sides of Cairo’s famed Tahrir Square and chanting at each other. Initial demonstrations last year were mainly from young secularists; now, Islamic parties hold most of the new parliament’s seats — the country’s first democratic one in six decades.

Salafis hold 25% of the seats and 47% are held by the Muslim Brotherhood, which brought supporters to Cairo for the anniversary. Tahrir Square alone contained tens of thousands of people, some witnesses putting the crowd at 150,000 strong. It’s the largest number on the streets since the revolution.

Military rulers planned celebrations including pyrotechnics, commemorative coins, and air displays. The Supreme Council of Armed Forces took power after last year’s February 11 resignation of Mubarak.

Alaa al-Aswani, a pro-democracy activist writing in al-Masry al-Youm, said: “We must take to the streets on Wednesday, not to celebrate a revolution which has not achieved its goals, but to demonstrate peacefully our determination to achieve the objectives of the revolution,” — to “live in dignity, bring about justice, try the killers of the martyrs and achieve a minimum social justice”

Alexandria in the north and the eastern port city of Suez also saw large gatherings. It was bitter fighting in Suez led to the first of the revolution’s 850 casualties in ousting Mubarak. “We didn’t come out to celebrate. We came out to protest against the military council and to tell it to leave power immediately and hand over power to civilians,” said protestor Mohamed Ismail.

“Martyrs, sleep and rest. We will complete the struggle,” chanted crowds in Alexandria, a reference to the 850 ‘martyrs of the revolution’. No convictions are in yet although Mubarak is on trial. Photos of the dead were displayed in Tahrir Square. Young Tahrir chanters went with “Down with military rule” and “Revolution until victory, revolution in all of Egypt’s streets”.

If the protestors demanding the military leave power get their way, the Islamists celebrating election victory face a variety of challenges. For now, Field Marshall Mohamed Hussein Tantawi — whose career featured twenty years as defence minister under Mubarak — rules the nation and promises to cede power following presidential elections this year.

The economy is troubled and unemployment is up since Mubarak left. With tourism and foreign investment greatly lower than usual, budget and payment deficits are up — with the Central Bank eating into its reserves in a bid to keep the Egyptian pound from losing too much value.

Last week the nation sought US$3.2 billion from the International Monetary Fund. The IMF insists upon funding also being secured from other donors, and strong support from Egypt’s leaders. IMF estimates say the money could be handed over in a few months — whereas Egypt wanted it in a matter of weeks.

The country has managed to bolster trade with the United States and Jordan. Amr Abul Ata, Egyptian ambassador to the fellow Middle-East state, told The Jordan Times in an interview for the anniversary that trade between the nations increased in 2011, and he expects another increase this year. This despite insurgent attacks reducing Egyptian gas production — alongside electricity the main export to Jordan. Jordan exports foodstuffs to Egypt and has just signed a deal increasing the prices it pays for gas. 2011 trade between the countries was worth US$1 billion.

The anniversary also saw a new trade deal with the US, signed by foreign trade and industry minister Mahmoud Eisa and U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk. President Barack Obama promises work to improve U.S. investment in, and trade with, nations changing political systems after the Arab Spring. Details remain to be agreed, but various proposals include US assistance for Egyptian small and medium enterprises. Both nations intend subjecting plans to ministerial scrutiny.

The U.S. hailed “several historic milestones in its transition to democracy” within a matter of days of Egypt’s revolution. This despite U.S.-Egypt ties being close during Mubarak’s rule.

US$1 billion in grants has been received already from Qatar and Saudi Arabia but army rulers refused to take loans from Gulf nations despite offers-in-principle coming from nations including Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and United Arab Emirates. Foreign aid has trickled in; no money at all has been sent from G8 nations, despite the G8 Deauville Partnership earmarking US$20 billion for Arab Spring nations.

A total of US$7 billion was promised from the Gulf. The United Kingdom pledged to split £110 million between Egypt and Arab Spring initiator Tunisia. The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development says G8 money should start arriving in June, when the presidential election is scheduled.

The African Development Bank approved US$1.5 billion in loans whilst Mubarak still held power but, despite discussions since last March, no further funding has been agreed. The IMF offered a cheap loan six months ago, but was turned away. Foreign investment last year fell from US$6 billion to $375 million.

Rights, justice and public order remain contentious issues. Tantawi lifted the state of emergency on Tuesday, a day before the revolution’s anniversary, but left it in place to deal with the exception of ‘thuggery’. “This is not a real cancellation of the state of emergency,” said Islamist Wasat Party MP Essam Sultan. “The proper law designates the ending of the state of emergency completely or enforcing it completely, nothing in between.”

The same day, Amnesty International released a report on its efforts to establish basic human rights and end the death penalty in the country. Despite sending a ten-point manifesto to all 54 political parties, only the Egyptian Social Democratic Party (of the Egyptian Bloc liberals) and the left-wing Popular Socialist Alliance Party signed up. Measures included religious freedom, help to the impoverished, and rights for women. Elections did see a handful of women win seats in the new parliament.

The largest parliamentary group is the Freedom and Justice Party of the Muslim Brotherhood, who Amnesty say did not respond. Oral assurances on all but female rights and abolition of the death penalty were given by Al-Nour, the Salafist runners-up in the elections, but no written declaration or signature.

“We challenge the new parliament to use the opportunity of drafting the new constitution to guarantee all of these rights for all people in Egypt. The cornerstone must be non-discrimination and gender equality,” said Amnesty, noting that the first seven points were less contentious amongst the twelve responding parties. There was general agreement for free speech, free assembly, fair trials, investigating Mubarak’s 30-year rule for atrocities, and lifting the state of emergency. A more mixed response was given to ensuring no discrimination against LGBT individuals, whilst two parties claimed reports of Coptic Christian persecution are exaggerated.

Mubarak himself is a prominent contender for the death penalty, currently on trial for the killings of protesters. The five-man prosecution team are also seeking death for six senior police officers and the chief of security in the same case. Corruption offences are also being tried, with Gamal Mubarak and Alaa Mubarak accused alongside their father Hosni.

The prosecution case has been hampered by changes in witness testimony and there are complaints of Interior Ministry obstruction in producing evidence. Tantawi has testified in a closed hearing that Mubarak never ordered protesters shot.

Do you believe Egypt’s current military rulers will allow a peacful transition to civilian rule?

Hisham Talaat Moustafa, an ex-MP and real estate billionaire, is another death penalty candidate. He, alongside Ahmed Sukkari, was initially sentenced to death for the murder of his ex-girlfriend, Lebanese pop star Suzanne Tamim. A new trial was granted on procedural grounds and he is now serving a fifteen-year term for paying Sukkari US$2 million to slit 30-year-old’s Tamim’s throat in Dubai. Her assassin was caught when police followed him back to his hotel and found a shirt stained with her blood; he was in custody within two hours of the murder.

The court of appeals is now set to hear another trial for both men after the convictions were once more ruled unsound.

A military crackdown took place last November, the morning after a major protest, and sparking off days of violence. Egypt was wary of a repeat this week, with police and military massed near Tahrir Square whilst volunteers manned checkpoints into the square itself.

The military has pardoned and released at least 2,000 prisoners jailed following military trials, prominently including a blogger imprisoned for defaming the army and deemed troublesome for supporting Israel. 26-year-old Maikel Nabil was given a three year sentence in April. He has been on hunger strike alleging abuse at the hands of his captors. He wants normalised relations with Israel. Thousands have now left Tora prison in Cairo.

United Nations Report: Deserts threatened by global warming

United Nations Report: Deserts threatened by global warming
No Comments »

Monday, June 5, 2006

A new report, titled “Global Deserts Outlook,” has been released on World Environment Day by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). The report suggests that the world’s deserts face dramatic changes as a result of global climate change: high water demands, tourism and salt contamination of irrigated soils. Desert margins and mountainous areas within deserts that have been important for people, wildlife and water supplies for millennia, are under particular threat, say UNEP.

2006 is the United Nations‘ International Year of Deserts and Desertification. Yet deserts could become the “carbon-free power houses of the 21st century,” some experts believe. They argue an area 800 by 800 km of desert, such as the Sahara, could capture the solar energy to generate all the world’s electricity needs – and more.

The report, prepared by experts from across the globe, flags options that may help governments and relevant bodies deliver a more sustainable future for the Earth’s desert regions.

“There are many popular and sometimes misplaced views of deserts which this report either confirms or overturns. Far from being barren wastelands, they emerge as biologically, economically and culturally dynamic while being increasingly subject to the impacts and pressures of the modern world,” said Shafqat Kakakhel, UNEP’s Officer in Charge and Deputy Executive Director.

“If the huge, solar-power potential of deserts can be economically harnessed the world has a future free from fossil fuels. And tourism based around desert nature can, if sensitively managed, deliver new prospects and perspectives for people in some of the poorest parts of the world,” said Mr Kakakhel.

Almost one-quarter of the earth’s land surface – some 33.7 million square kilometres – has been defined as “desert” in some sense. These deserts are inhabited by over 500 million people, significantly more than previously thought. In many parts of the world desert cores remain pristine, representing some of the planet’s “last remaining areas of total wilderness,” stated the UNEP in a news release.

Desert species are on the brink of extinction the Global Deserts Outlook reports. At risk animals include various species of Gazelle, Oryx, Addax, Arabian Tahr and the Barbary sheep as well as one of the falconers favourite prey, the Houbara. “At greatest risk are the few patches of dry woodlands associated with desert mountain habitats which may decline by up to 3.5 per cent per year,” said the study.

As a result of their valuable water supplies being diverted to domestic or agricultural use, desert wetlands, fed by the large rivers crossing deserts, are probably the most threatened ecosystem. Probable impacts include those created by roads, settlement expansion and other infrastructure developments around areas of desert montane. By 2050 the report estimates that desert wilderness – those areas where there are no nearby roads – will decline from just under 60 per cent of the current total desert area to just over 30 per cent.

The pharmaceutical potential of desert plants has yet to be tapped, suggests the report. Scientists across the globe are analysing many desert plants for potential medicinal compounds – including anti-cancer and anti-malarial substances, antioxidants, as well as appetite suppressants.

Ft. Wayne, Indiana burn center treats Afghan child

Tuesday, July 12, 2005

Doctors at the regional burn center at St. Joseph Hospital in Fort Wayne, Indiana are treating a patient flown in from war-torn Afghanistan.

U.S. Army’s 113th Battalion, which is made up of Indiana National Guardsman, discovered five-year-old Zia after a propane explosion in suburban Kabul] earlier this year destroyed homes and killed six of the boy’s family members.

The blast left Zia with third degree burns on his arms, torso and legs. Guardsmen, familiar with the Fort Wayne burn center, worked with non-profit group, Northeast Indiana Burn Council to raised $18,500 to fly Zia, accompanied by his father Abdul Qahir, to Fort Wayne for treatment.

Upon arrival, he was rushed to the St. Joseph burn unit, where after a few days of recovery fromtravel, underwent his first surgery June 23. The second and final surgery was postponed ninedays from an original date of July 2 because the boy developed an infection in one of his wounds,which is common for burn patients.

The second surgery grafted skin onto burn wounds on Zia’s arm, chest and the second toe on hisright foot. Tuesday, doctors said Zia was recovering and appeared to be in good spirits. Inpreparation for their planned return trip to Afghanistan in September, doctors are teaching Zia’sfather physical therapy techniques needed for further recovery. “Without good therapy, he couldbe right back where we started,” Dr. John Mancoll, the lead surgeon on the case, said in aninterview with the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette newspaper.

Submitted by: Chickie Maxwell

Long recognized as the world’s foremost outfitter, Cabela’s specialty retail chain, by most accounts, is a sportsman’s paradise. Clearly, it represents a haven for all outdoor enthusiasts, catering not only to recreational pursuits, such as fishing, hunting, boating, shooting and ATV riding, but also to far-reaching activities, including camping, hiking and related hobbies like bird watching and astronomy. For those who enjoy outdoor life, Cabela’s has everything under one roof, outfitting shoppers for 50 years with rugged and practical clothing and equipment to enhance their recreational interests. With excellent customer service and stores throughout the U.S., print catalogs and a user-friendly website, this Sidney, Nebraska-based company has become a well-known American brand, synonymous with successful retailing.

A trip to a Cabela’s retail establishment easily resembles a fun-filled family excursion, with interior displays that are far from ordinary. Moreover, the stores themselves are designed to look like woodsy mountain retreats of stone and log, their facades promising a unique experience that will entice visitors to get equipped to “play” outside, no matter the season. While stores may vary slightly, once inside, a wonderland unfolds, revealing displays of museum quality taxidermy featuring bears, deer and geese. Aquariums, ponds, murals and mountain exhibits add to the visual delights, while a restaurant and multiple treat kiosks satisfy other tastes. There is even a gun library for those with a thirst for knowledge, and a travel service offers trip-planning assistance for adventurers more interested in safaris than beach resorts and palm trees. Since nothing about Cabelas’ stores is small, with massive exterior bronze sculptures of wildlife and gigantic interior showrooms, it s easy to forget one is not outdoors.

Cabela’s sells a lot of clothing, tastefully displayed for each sex and age group, also broken down by particular interest categories. For example, men will find hunting clothing featuring every garment a hunter would require for comfort, warmth and practicality, from outerwear to socks. This contrasts with a casual section dedicated to t-shirts, shorts and other relaxed garments and accessories for everyday use. Footwear, from athletic shoes to hunting boots and waders, is also given its due. Similarly, women can browse through an array of active-wear, sleepwear and accessories, in addition to apparel suited to camping, fishing and hunting. They can also view a variety of sandals, hiking boots and comfortable sheepskin slippers. There is plenty for children too, geared to the outdoors or practical comfort. Moreover, well-made footwear enables kids to go hunting or hiking alongside dad. And where else could parents find Berber fleece baby mittens or a toddler sized “camo” snowsuit?

Cabelas’ retail prices are reasonable, but there are also frequent sales and promotions. These promotions are not only on off-season items. Thus, the current fishing gear sale is not unusual. Moreover, there are weekly specials. Current specials features jackets, jeans, hiking shorts and pants, as well as a bevy of household items, including bedding. Additionally, in the “Bargain Cave” are cabin and woodsy home furnishings, GPS devices, boating, archery and ATV gear, clothing and accessories, to name a sampling of those promoted as “rock bottom deals. Savings run as much as 70%. When ordering via the website, a $5 shipping special is in force through mid-June, just in time for Father’s Day. The best deal for many loyal customers is obtaining a Cabela’s Club Visa, its associated rewards program earning free gear in exchange for unwavering patronage.

So, when looking for a novel place to explore, a trip to Cabela’s will most likely result in something every member of the family will enjoy. Along the way, it might also promote a healthy interest in camping, hiking, hunting, boating or just getting outside for a change of pace. That is probably the intent of a retail organization that clearly has arisen out of a passion for the outdoors.
