5 Simple Beauty Products You Can Make From Coconut Oil By Nicole Geraci - April 2, 2013 1:20 PM ED

Many people who are very choosy about what they eat often forget
that their skin is their largest organ, and what you put on your skin
gets absorbed into your body. Unfortunately, many conventional soaps,
lotions and other beauty products are filled with chemicals and toxins.

To
replace your chemical-laden products with health-sustaining natural
ones, all you need is a jar of coconut oil and a few minutes of free
time! This superfood
isn't just great for better-balanced hormones, and a stronger immune
system--it can feed your skin as well, leaving it soft, glowing and
youthful-looking. (Not to mention delicious-smelling!) 

Once you’ve replaced your standard beauty products with coconut oil,
you’ll never go back. Instead, you’ll smile secretly to yourself every
time someone asks you how you got such soft, glowing skin.

Here
are five easy-to-make beauty products that use coconut oil as a base.
You’ll be surprised at how easy it is to incorporate coconut oil into
your daily beauty routine!


Makeup Remover
It
doesn’t get much easier than this! Simply warm a bit of coconut oil
between your palms and brush your hands over your face and eyes. Wipe
the oil away with a damp cloth and you’ll be left with clear, clean,
fresh skin.


Deodorant
Conventional
deodorants and antiperspirants contain aluminum, which has been linked
to cancer. Luckily, homemade deodorant is quick and easy to whip up! Mix
together 2 parts baking soda and 2 parts cornstarch with one part
coconut oil. (For example: two tablespoons each of baking soda and
cornstarch and one tablespoon of coconut oil). The coconut oil will keep
your skin hydrated, while the baking soda takes care of odors, and the
cornstarch keeps you dry. If you like, you can add a few drops of your
favorite essential oil for fragrance.


Toothpaste
To
make homemade toothpaste, mix together equal parts coconut oil and
baking soda. The baking soda will help keep your teeth white and shiny.
Add a few drops of peppermint essential oils for a crisp, minty flavor.
Some people also add a few drops of stevia for tooth-friendly
sweetness. 

Keep in mind that coconut oil
is solid at room temperature, so it’s important to rinse your sink with
hot water when you’ve finished brushing your teeth. 


Shaving Oil
Coconut
oil is the ideal shaving oil! Simply rub a generous amount onto your
skin and use your regular razor to shave. When you’re done, you’ll find
that your legs are smooth and clean – and you won’t even need to
moisturize them.


Body Butter
You
can rub coconut oil directly into your skin. While it might feel a bit
oily at first, it will all get absorbed. Some people find that their
skin absorbs the oil more quickly when they apply it after a warm
shower, while their pores are still open. Coconut oil is a wonderful
moisturizer that will help keep your skin hydrated and youthful-looking.

If
you prefer something a little bit more decadent, or if you’re tired of
trying to dig solid coconut oil out of the jar, it’s easy to whip up a
body butter using coconut oil as a base. Simply combine coconut oil with
a few drops of your favorite essential oil and whisk it until it takes
on a light, frothy texture. Spoon it into an airtight container and
enjoy!

If You Do Just One Feng Shui Practice For Your Home, Do This





 Feng shui is the art of applying unique variations of an ancient
practice to improve our wealth, health, and happiness. But it is not
meant to be complicated, esoteric, or even weird. Having studied and
practiced shui for almost a decade, I’ve distilled my work down to
simple mechanics that, if observed and honored, will deliver megawatt
results. The biggest darling of them all: sweeping.

What began
as a simple starting point for an overwhelmed client has become the
vertebrae for all my feng shui consults. Whether you're at a crossroads
or just want to keep your energy upright, sweeping will change the air
around you.

If you’ve never heard this before, you're in for a
fascinating surprise. Here are three reasons to grab your broom and give
sweeping a whirl:

1. Sweeping is an excellent ritual to incorporate into a daily or weekly routine.

First, think of a ritual as a servant of your intention.
And since frequency creates frequency, the more you honor any ritual
you set, the more energy you collect around your intention. Eventually,
those intentions manifest and become a frequent experience in your life.


A simple ritual I LOVE is to regularly sweep outside our front door.


This signals to the universe we're open for luck to find us. I give
thanks for the day or week and all its possibilities. Whenever we align
quality attention with a ritual, our intentions are given the spotlight.


2. If you aren’t sure where to sweep, follow me and start outside your front door.

Feng shui
holds that our entryways welcome all universal blessings into a home,
so if you want luck and opportunity to find you, make your entrance
entrancing. The more we use the front door, the more we invite
auspicious energy into our homes and lives. A sweeping ritual is the
perfect way to stitch the door’s frequent use into a meaningful routine.


The other gorgeous note of any observed practice is that we
begin showing up for ourselves differently. Something sacred happens
when we excavate what isn’t serving us and pursue simplicity as an
everyday experience. A small pattern habitually repeated makes a BIG
difference, and you'll find yourself living energetically at a much
higher octave. Better flow, more synchronicity, and a surge of
inspiration will become constant companions.

3. The act of sweeping is synonymous for out with the old, in with the new.


Not only are you sweeping away dirt and debris, you are symbolically
releasing the past and low-vibe energy while preparing room to receive
refreshments. By declaring spots in our home as sacred space and
maintaining them, little improvements ripple into other areas of our
lives. Sweeping is a simple gesture toward our home, and a powerful
statement to the universe. And this message gets her attention. Every
time.



Once you start sweeping, watch for delightful little
synchronicities — the universe will answer the call. As you reclaim your
home and all its potent power, listen to your instincts. Your house
will give you clues and cues precisely where to take your attention
next. Lean into your space and find ways to anchor your own rituals of
LOVE into your days — they will become beaming beacons of light,
attracting the necessary ingredients for a really good life. And when
you don’t know what else to do, sweep.

Huawei Honor 3C - Tips and Tricks You Don't Know

All the info you want to know about Huawei Honor 3C


Honor 3C (White)

Yes bro. Slightly higher but better than you just redeem anything at senQ for the sake of just to use the points. 
They charge 300TP for RM1, compared to senQ and Maybank 250TP only for rm1. 
Any phone, no limit, you can just convert it to cash and buy their phone at Satugadget. I juz paid around rm810 for my mi3 last time. If buy hongmi, less than rm150. Heheh

Just tell the sales rep that you want to redeem your points. But it seems like only works for Maybank treatpoints, other bank no promo so not sure.

For those facing LED notification issues, there is a
possibility that the LED is NOT a multi-coloured one as per higher end phones.
It could possibly be only red, orange and green. Hence, when you set it to
other colours, it either doesn't show up, or in another colour.




I used 
Light Manager - LED Set to
customise the LED notifications. Works fine on my Asus Zenfone 5 to test all
the available colours, which turns out, on the Asus ZF5, only shows
red/orange/green. Not much customisation can be done. I think the Huawei Honor
3C should be similiar as they are of the similar budget range.

how to make screen turn off when using
flip case ?






















use this. best app when using flipcase. it'll
automatically turn on screen when open the flip, turn off screen when close it.
it can even prevent screen from turn off accidentally while u use the phone.

DLNA is only apply to steaming media file, not for file
transfer




In Android phone, it support SAMBA
server............which is "Network Neighborhood" in PC




First, share out the foler in your PC

you can install "Solid explorer" or
"ES Explorer" etc in your android phone, then open the apps and
choose SAMBA.


keyin your PC's IP Address and now you can
access all the PC share files


just a tip that I find useful to myself:

1. Stock
Messaging app just suck big time in lag
, i have about 1000+ sms in my log.
I used Textra previously in my G.Nexus, it was speedy previously and now its
even faster.


2. To replace it as default messaging app, you
have to disable the stock messaging app. (no uninstall unless root).


3. Textra or hangouts (another atrocity by
Google) will then be allowed to assume default, choose wisely.


4. Here's the GEM - once you disable the stock
app, the gestures / motion control shortcut from sleep will be blanked and you
can actually choose ANY app you want from thereon in. Manipulate as you wish
for the other directions etc.


And also can keep XXX pictures and movies outside ur phone
so that will not be spot-check by police.  

Watch it via Wifi
streaming la. I am using Synology NAS, and use Android "DS File" to
access all files in the NAS. Full HD also no problem.


download MX player from the Play store , play
any HD video (I tried a 720p video) , next , try using the HW decoder option ,
the video will play smoothly but the UI , nav bar , everything would be laggy.
However when you try using the SW
decoder
, everything is smooth , navigating through scenes are
instantaneous , UI is smooth also.

Guys, can we use custom ringtones and

Nillkin Frosted Shield Back Case honor 3c

Instead of flip cover, I would think an all corners wrapped
up soft back casing made of TUP + tempered glass screen protector would offer
better protection and ease of use while keeping the phone slimmer than one with
flip cover.
TUP soft back casing provides shock absorption for four
corners during accidental drops and tempered glass screen helps prevent
shattered screen.

How Technology Has Changed the Face of Autism

When you first meet James, you realize immediately that there’s something different about him. He’s 16 but reads at a second-grade level. He speaks loudly, often interrupting other people’s conversations. He has difficulty recounting the events of his day or sustaining attention to any conversation. He has trouble with simple arithmetic.
Like tens of thousands of other children, James has an autism spectrum disorder (ASD), which makes life a daily challenge for his parents, Marie and Rob, who live just outside Washington, D.C.
How Technology Has Changed the Face of Autism
“I think … therefore I am not a diagnosis” by John Jay Glenn (via Flickr).
Yet, like many with ASD, James has some unusual abilities. He can quote dialog verbatim from nearly any Disney or Star Wars movie, Marie says. He can find places he’s visited in the past by poring over satellite images on Google Maps, Rob adds. And with the help of an iPad outfitted by the special-needs coordinators at his school, James can lead something approaching a normal life for a high school student.
James’ story isn’t all that unique. The number of autistic children is staggering — one in 68 has been diagnosed with ASD, according to studies by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That means there’s one in every two or three classrooms in America.
More: Eight Things You Ought to Know About Autism (but Might Not)
I can name half a dozen families that have at least one member with ASD, and I bet you can, too. Yet most of what I thought I knew about autism came from watching movies like Rain Man or reading books by Oliver Sacks.
Because April is National Autism Awareness month, I thought I’d try to learn more about this complex and mysterious disorder. One of the more remarkable things I’ve discovered is both how deeply embedded ASD is in the world of tech, and how technology is helping to make a huge difference in the lives of people who live with it each day.
The iPad influenceAssistive technology for the developmentally disabled has been available for decades, but until recently most of it has been extremely low tech or extremely expensive. The iPad is helping to change that.
For example, many people with ASD are nonverbal, even if they can understand what’s being said to them and formulate responses in their brains. In the past, parents might have spent $8,000 or more on a dedicated single-purpose computer to help their kids communicate via symbols. With the tap of a picture, the machine would recite the word associated with it; tap several in a row, and it would string the words together to form rudimentary sentences. Now kids with ASD can get many of the same capabilities by installing AssistiveWare’s $220 Proloquo2Go app.

Rob says carrying an iPad removed the stigma of carrying around a clunky device that screamed, “I am different from everyone else.”
“The iPad made it kind of cool,” he says. “He’s not the weird kid with the electronic box on his desk; he’s just another kid with an iPad.”
Communication is just one challenge for kids with ASD that can be addressed via apps. Another is learning how to engage socially, says Shira Lee Katz, senior director of education content for Common Sense Media. An app like The Social Express Home can help kids understand social norms and how to respond appropriately to others, Katz says, while Calm Counter can teach them how to cool down when they get frustrated and angry.
Children with ASD also often lack executive functioning skills, such as the ability to manage tasks and to move from one to the next. Apps like Time Timer and Choiceworks can help kids structure the time they spend on each task and follow visually oriented schedules, says Marbea Tammaro, assistive technology team specialist for Arlington Public Schools in Virginia. Even the basic apps that come with every tablet — like the calendar, to-do lists, and the camera — can be extremely useful for creating visual reminders and managing day-to-day activities, adds her colleague, Josh Taylor, an autism specialist for Arlington.
But the number and variety of apps for developmentally disabled children is overwhelming, Taylor adds, and every child is different. The best solution is to work with your school’s special-education team to find the apps that match your child’s situation.
Saved by the NetThe other great technological innovation that helps members of the ASD community is the Internet itself. For example, iPads with special needs apps aren’t always covered by insurance, so some families that can’t afford to buy them have turned to crowdfunding. Sites like GiveForward and Crowdrise have helped ASD families buy the tech they needed, says Shannon Des Roches Rosa, a writer and autism activist whose 13-year-old son is on the spectrum.
image
There are hundreds of Web resources devoted to the topic — from Facebook groups like Autism - technically speaking, which is aimed at parents of autistic kids in the technology business, to social networks like MyAutismTeam to activist sites like the Autistic Self Advocacy Network and sites like Thinking Person’s Guide to Autism, which combines a bit of everything.
Sometimes, though, the solution isn’t always cutting edge. A child who’s hypersensitive to sounds can be calmed with something as simple as noise-canceling headphones, Rosa says. And instead of putting a GPS tracking device on her son, she used a med-alert bracelet with her cellphone number.
Rosa also warns against lingering on sites that focus on the stigma of being autistic. “You need to get through that thicket of misinformation, negativity, and pity, because it will just drag you down,” she says. “You need be aware of the rights and needs of autistic people, and get to work on fighting for them.”
And if you weren’t aware of all that before, well, you are now.
