Wireless headphones vs normal headphones which is better?

If you thinking of buying some headphones this is probably a good article for you! Here we will be talking about what is better wireless headphones or normal ones! Wireless headphones use wifi technology to get rid of the wire and let you listen to music even if your not plugged in… But in all honesty wireless headphones may sound good but they really aren’t!

Here are some of the reasons why i think that wireless headphones are just not worth it!

Shhhhhhhh……

You better be playing music constantly otherwise you will be startled by a deafening shhhhhh sound… OR be annoyed by radio or even tv broadcasts. This is one of the major problems with some wireless headphones they are always receiving radio-waves! And it can get darn annoying!

Recharging them

Wireless headphones always need recharging where as normal ones with wires dont… This can be quite a inconvenience especially if you forget to recharge them or you are going on a long flight and cant! You dont have this annoyance with headphones with wires.

Sound quality isn’t as good in my opinion

The sound quality because the sound has to be sent via wifi can be at times a little broken up and fuzzy! Whereas normal headphones generally are as clear as possible because the sound isn’t traveling through the air and being effected.

Health risks

This may not be on your list of priorities but wireless headphones could be potentially bad for your health. How the wireless headphones work is by receiving and finding radio-waves! Normally radio-waves aren’t not a problem but considering the wireless receiver is found on the headphones constantly receiving radio-waves this long term could pose a health concern.

Premium price

Despite all these negatives because wireless headphones use the latest tech they are more expensive than your conventional headphones! Expect to pay lots more just for the privilege of having no wires!

In conclusion

I hope this quick guide on what to buy will help you decide on what to buy. I bought some wireless headphones to listen to music and movies in private when I am out and about but after a while I got sick of all the faults and bought a pair of normal headphones for much less… which have better sound quality and dont keep making me jump by shhhh’ing every time they dont receive noise. I also didn’t like the idea of all those radio-waves going straight to my head all the time.

Gain some extra height like the movie stars do!

I did say gain and not grow.. but what really does it matter as long as your taller…. right? To gain the extra height that you maybe wanting it quite simple and straight forward you may even kick yourself for not thinking of this yourself. Height insoles/inserts! The Hollywood movie stars all wear them and for good reason they are practically impossible for other to guess your wearing a pair. Comfortable for all day use! And wont wreck your style of your shoes. In Hollywood everyone’s shallow and appearances is everything. Getting that leading role in  the next major blockbuster film can come down to look rather than acting ability that is precisely why movie stars will not let anything like height get in their way and stop them landing that next big movie starring role! Being taller creates a better appearance and people respect taller people too a lot more……. Now height increasing insoles Will give you the height that you need to succeed .. all the movie stars all take advantage of the added height the insoles give you so why cant you? Don’t worry about people laughing about you wearing them to fake your height as how will they even know your wearing them as they are hidden inside your shoes….. without even a obvious taller heel to give the game away either so you have got nothing to worry about! If these insoles give you extra height that helps lift your confidence than great that’s all that matters really.

The best way to gain more confidence

How to get more confidence? It quite easy really if you have a pair of these insoles on hand.. If you are insecure about your height then gaining a bit more height will surely help you out being taller will also alter the way people perceive and act towards you for the better which will mean as people will be more positive towards you.. and less inclined to talk down to you both metaphorically and physically this will all help you to build more confidence and self esteem!

Height increasing insoles/shoe lifts helpful facts

At a affordable price, less than £10 a pair

Comfortable to wear… high heels sure aren’t and can damage your feet by positioning them in awkward and unnatural positions whereas these insoles have been made with orthotics and arch supports to help position your foot in the most natural and comfortable position you are actually more better off wearing some of these shoe lifts than wearing flat insoles in your shoes which can over time cause damage due to lack of arch support.

Elevator higher shoes are over priced… obvious and you can’t swap pairs of shoes about your just stuck with the one pair of elevator shoes unlike with a pair of insoles!

Beats other more conventional and slow ways to increase height like posture stretches which can take years to take effect… but the bets advise would be to combine the two for the best height gain!

Easily put the insoles in any pair of shoes you want to wear!

Where to buy some?

The most comfortable height insoles and the ones that can be changed in height and I think are best gotta be from nuova

So be like the movie stars! Be tall! I promise you buying a pair could be all it takes to gain more confidence and get noticed!

Uv mapping is so boring

Uv mapping is important when creating your game models but my goodness is it boring. The whole point of uv mapping is to create a map to let the computer know where to render pixels on a texture onto the 3d model. Some people are very critical of uv maps that are not perfect. A perfect uv map would be one that does not waste space on the uv map is seamless and is easy to understand and paint on, however creating a perfect uv map is easier said than done and can take up a lot of development time. If you are not that bothered about wasted space and have no plans to paint in 2d with programs such as Photoshop but instead want to paint in 3d using mudbox then there are various methods to instantly create a uv map with a click of a button that evenly lays out a uv map to allow you to seamlessly paint on the 3d model’s. There is a built in function in mudbox that allows you to automatically generate a uv map… and in autodesk maya you have a similar automatic uv generate feature to create uv maps for you. I prefer the one in maya as the mudbox ones just creates separate polygon blocks everywhere… whilst the maya one resembles a bit better to a normal uv map thats been hand created.

The good thing about automatic uv generating is that it comes in really handy for game characters.. uv mapping game characters is much harder than uv mapping solid.. and blocky game models as the forms of game characters are less mechanical and far more organic and fluid.

But bare in mind you will be restricted to 3d painting only as 2d painting will be very tricky as usually the uv map will be quite messy and all over the place making 2d painting very hard.

Healthy living tips guide

Welcome to the Healthy living tips guide that will tell you loads of great tips on how to live a healthy lifestyle. From exercise to diet this simple and concise guide will break down everything important that you should know about living a healthy lifestyle!

Being healthy should be at the top of your list of things you should do. Many of us however will always come up with excuses like we are far to busy or being healthy is just too expensive.. but even if you are on a budget and or a really busy person you can still be really healthy trust me.

Being unhealthy, inactive and not eating right will make you feel lazy, depressed and ill. Get more energy live life to the full its in your reach you just gotta take the steps and you can finally enjoy a healthy and great life where you always have the energy.

Bin those ready meals, walk the other way when you see a fast food restaurant dont sit around all day not moving.. yes I know many jobs now dont involve much else than just sitting in front of a computer typing stuff but surely you can every 30 minutes take a break stretch and walk around right? Even before you go to work you can get plenty of exercise by walking, cycling or running to work… and after the day is done dont take the lazy option of taking the car, bus or train after all you’ve been sat down all day so make sure you walk run or cycle back home!

Humans are not designed to sit around all down so..dont! Exercise!

Doing this by increasing your activity you will help your body become more efficient at pumping blood around your body as your hear will get more healthy… more nutrients, oxygen and blood will be pumped around your body giving you more improving your immune system, making you feel better and more alive!

Run run run

Running is one of the best exercises that will strengthen your heart and import for cardiovascular health helping improve circulation. Running will help you stay fit and healthy. Things that you should do when running is to prepare correctly.. make sure you know where you are going to run to and know the route their is nothing worse then getting lost. Run with friends and compete to help push your self and make it fun! Get some good comfortable running insoles or orthotics as good insoles whilst running can stop foot cramps and problems from effecting the run!

Read more on orthotic insoles here

Running isn’t the only exercise you can do

If you dont like the sound of running their are plenty more exercises and sport you can do like swimming and football that can be all turned into competitions one way or other to make it more fun for you.

Diet

You may feel that eating ready meals and fast food is a good idea when your busy as they will give you the energy you need to get through the day and they are a fast and cheap alternative to preparing your own food! But fast food and ready meals are empty calorie junk food that give you no nutritional value whatsoever…. full of sugar and trans fats that clog up your arteries eating
junk food is the one of the worst things to do… Full of sugar and quickly absorbed into your blood stream will cause spikes in your blood sugar levels. Increased blood sugar level will mean the release of insulin a hormone that you body makes which is the fat storage hormone which gets rid of the excess sugar in your blood by storing it as fat. Spike in blood sugar levels and the fact that the junk food is quickly digested and then gone means that you will feel full for a short period of time but will quickly feel hungry again meaning you will have to eat more… this all isn’t very good if you are inactive too and you can see how this can cause weight gain when you do not burn off all this excess fat.

What you should eat instead are foods that have nutritional value, health benefits and are digested slowly thus releasing their energy into the blood supply evenly and not in sudden spikes. It’s not all about the calorie count of food but what the nutrition is of the food.. that isn’t to say that you should eat more than your body burns but it does mean that you should concentrate more on the nutritional value of food and eating when your hungry and your body needs it and not starving yourself because you have eaten more than 2000 calories in one day. In fact some professional athletes because they are very active and need all the energy they can get will eat a lot more than 2000 calories some will even eat 6000 calories a day.

The important thing to remember is that 100 calories of fat is very different to 100 calories of protein…. and balance is the key. You body needs a balance of foods from all the food groups (even some fats are needed by the body) to function at its best.

five fruit and vegetables a day or more…

This rule is not just for kids! Its for adults as well but many adults forget! Eating enough fruit and vegetables provides your body with important antioxidants and nutrients that can prevent some forms of cancer.. help your immune system make you more energetic and a whole host of other health benefits and vitamins that you body needs. You have a huge range of different kinds of fruit and vegetables that can vary dramatically in taste so even if you dont like one kind of fruit or vegetables their will be at least one kind that you will like.. So you cant say that you dont like fruit or vegetables as you probably haven’t tasted them all!

You maybe thinking that you dont need to eat fruit and vegetables to get vitamins and nutrition in your body as you can simply take supplements for this…. but this is totally the wrong way of doing things as the health benefits from fruit and vegetables cannot be taken in supplement form as the nutrition and vitamins work synergistcally with one and another so taking just one type of vitamin or nutritional supplement will not work and trying to find the balance of what pills to take and how many is a impossible task (if not expensive too).
It is best that you eat a wide range of different fruit and vegetables to get a wide range of nutritional and health benefits from them.

What other foods apart from junk foods should you avoid in a healthy diet?

Good question. The white foods… bleached and stripped of all nutritional value white foods like white rice and bread offer no nutritional value.. bleached to create the appealing white appearance and stripped of fiber and other nutritional components means that eating these food is like eating raw carbs (sugar) with no fiber to help slow down the digestion process means spikes in blood sugar levels and we all know what that means now dont we?
It is best not to go for these white foods but go for the brown alternatives for example brown rice and brown bread that haven’t been stripped of their grain, nutritional value and bleached… because brown foods have got fiber also means the fiber gets in the way and makes digestion of the brown foods much longer and over the course of the day making you feel fuller for much longer so you will not fin your self snacking.

Some fats are healthy

Ever heard of omega 3 and 6 these are fats and have had a lot of media coverage over the years about how these fats can improve concentration and brain power and it is true they will! The omega fats are mainly found in fish.
Cooking fat’s olive oil and plant oil have lots of nutrition hidden inside them so cook your food in these fats instead of saturated fats.

Bad fats

Trans fats and saturated fats are really bad and should be avoided. Found in animal products and dairy.

Protein for body development, growth and repair.

Protein is essential for repairing, growing and developing your body. Proteins mainly found in meat but can be found in other foods like lentils, walnuts and milk and are really one of the most important things your body needs. Lack of protein whilst in your teens may cause stunted growth. The amino acids in protein are needed by your cells for cellular growth and repair.. it has been found that in countries that have little protein in their diets the average height of the population is considerably less of that of a country which has plenty of protein in their diet.

Strong bones with calcium

Dairy products like milk and cheese can give you the calcium you need for strong bones! Strong bones and getting enough calcium to your bones is very important if you want to avoid osteoporosis in later life. Vitamin D from the sun is also needed for strong bones! Yes sun light gives your body vitamin D and vitamin d is important in improving the bodies ability to absorb calcium from food!
Dairy products aren’t your only source of calcium you also got lentils, beans lettuce, celery and even brussel sprouts that all contain calcium too.

EATING SLAT IS A BAD IDEA.. STOP PUTTING EXTRA SALT ONTO YOUR FOOD!

Adding extra salt to already salty food isn’t very good.. and a salty diet can cause osteoporosis? Why because salt and acid foods cause imbalances in acidity levels in your stomach of which your body tries to correct by using minerals from your bones. This in effect lowers bone density level’s increasing the risk of osteoporosis. Avoid acidly products like vinegar and or lemon’s which could change the acid balance in your stomach.

Remember to drink water

Drinking plenty of water helps to keep you hydrated helping to keep your body healthy plus water can help flush out all the toxins that can pollute your insides. Drinking water helps with concentration too as much of your brain is made of water so water is what you need! Drink around 8 glasses of water a day to keep hydrated.

Healthy tips summary

Make sure that you eat healthy and have a balanced diet! I cannot stress how important this is.. eating the right amount of food with wich I mean the amount of food that your body means and not what a chart says you should have is important! Eat foods from a wide range of sources… being healthy is a lifestyle choice and not something you can start and stop when ever you feel like it. Being more healthy will give you more energy.. make you live longer, improve your mood and make you happier!

Thank you for reading the Superoito guide to healthy living. If you found this guide useful at all please share it with your friends and get them healthy as well. Good luck.

Google is the cause of online spam

Today I had one of my websites blasted by a spam bot posting garbage spam to it…(I only hope that the freaks dont build spam backlinks now to my website in a tier even though i have deleted the spam and set up even stronger anti spam measures). Having spam back-links pointing to you and having spam duplicate content on your website will loose your rank in search engines… Ironic though that it is the search engines that are causing these complete tools.. to spam your website in the first place to help with their own rankings in the search engines… some spammers will only aim for short term rankings in google before they disappear and create another website… How do these spammers find your website in the first place? Google and other search engines again… So you see that the only reason your website is being spammed is totally down to google! (Weather the search engine mean for this to happen or not)

There are ways to stop spammers including using secret hidden fields that only bots see and fill out.. once filled out the bot is blocked. however guess what hiding stuff via css is against googles terms and conditions…… WEBMASTERS CANT WIN!

They dont make The Simpsons like they used too

I still watch the classic old episodes of The Simpsons and still laugh but all these new episodes are just boooring.
The Simpsons used to one of the funniest programs on tv but now however down to The Simpsons selling out to the greedy media and tv bosses which has sucked the life out of the music industry the Simpsons has became a victim to the rich businessmen at the top. The Simpsons used to have subtle jokes here and there which made the Simpsons funny but now the Simpsons is boring.

Celebrity’s flock to the Simpsons in their masses… as obviously “you aint a celeb unless you have been on the Simpsons” ever episode now contains some celeb somewhere however irrelevant to the storyline… The Simpsons used to make the fun out of celebs but now the celebs are using The Simpsons to promote themselves and definitely not to insult themselves.
Some may argue that the reason why The Simpsons is no longer funny is that the writers have ran out of story lines for The Simpsons but i dont think that this is the real reason… I think that it is actually down to tv and media executives getting greedy.

There are a couple reasons why The Simpsons has lost its humor and why its now so boring.

Being More pc….. The Simpsons cannot risk their reputation anymore on controversial jokes instead The Simpsons must stay pc to please the masses and not to offend anyone… This means more profits as more people can enjoy it (in theory). The Simpsons has a huge fan base so why not just use The Simpsons as a way of promoting other products or even ideologies? Why waste time and profit thinking of good story lines.. time and episodes are money remember so episodes need to be made in their masses which kills creativity and humor altogether.
With boring and jokes for the sake of it in the new episodes of the Simpsons just goes to show that once something sell’s out and get too popular that’s when the rich business guys come in to squeeze as much money and merchandizing they can from it…

Do you think that the Simpsons has lost the plot? Do you think the new episodes are just shallow overly commercialized and just plain boring? Do you want The Simpsons to go back to the way they were before the invasion of celebrities? Or do you feel that The Simpsons still is funny and can never die? Comment below and share your thoughts!

Star wars movies every year? Overkill?

With the recent news that there will be new star wars movies set to be made by Disney was greeted by lots of smiles (even if it was Disney).. but then it turned out that Disney planned to release Star wars movies every year.. which turned those frowns.. well upside down (sorry had to be said). Trust Disney to do this to the greatest movie series of all time… Not only does Disney have a huge task to do by creating epic and timeless characters that must replace yoda, luke skywalker, Darth Vader, create a even more memorable storyline from the last ones.. add mind-boggling CGI…. and the list goes on but Disney says that they are going to do this each year? Really? I find this hard to believe… and rather a sign that the next series of Disney films will be boring, dull, have no depth and rather just a cash cow for Disney really… Unless the new directors of the star wars films come up with some super ideas each year on demand which I doubt it, seems that Star wars is going to be rather rubbish… And wont it become overkill if there is a star wars movie out every year surely this isn’t the star wars way of releasing movies… try a decade or more in between films series… Thanks Disney.

Modern diet vs Paleo diet

The paleo diet some nutritionist say is the best way to eat. The reason why some nutritionists believe that the Paleo (Paleolithic) diet is the only way to eat is simple… we as humans have been adapted to eat like cavemen for thousands of years. The modern diet many of us eat today is bad very bad… full of processed ingredients, chemical’s, colorings and preservatives, E numbers… trans fats… to name only some of the harmful and in some cases lethal ingredients found in our food today. Food manufactures dont just stop with adding ingredients with genetically modified food they are able to modify the food to how they want?Why do food manufactures do this to our food? Well to help preserve the food for longer.. increasing shelf life and food manufactures profits, to change the taste of food, to reduce calorie count in food and a whole bunch of other reasons. Genetically modified food is on the increase from crops to poultry just about everything is being genetically modified nowadays and it is a science that is unknown to scientists of the effects eating genetically modified foods can have on us. Some believe that because genetically modified foods create a smaller gene pool the food that has been crops or animals that have been genetically modified can pick up diseases and mutations more easily and some question whether or not these diseases or mutations could be  passed onto us if we eat the genetically modified food.

In the last 100 years what we eat has drastically changed but us as humans haven’t. We are not really supposed to eat the vast amounts of sugar that we do eat… the problem is that people eat now on the go… ready meals for convenience… fast food because its cheap and snacks because it helps to fill us up instantly.

With so much wrong with the modern diet and with the simple fact that we aren’t adapted to eat such foods anyway isnt it more healthy to eat what our ancestors had been eating for thousands of years instead? Fresh organic meat and green vegetables.. with no sugar, chemicals preservatives and processed food in our diets?

On the other hand we do have more access to different kinds of foods which our ancestors did not have… for example we can eat different fruit from around the world all year long.. But the problem is that many do not choose to eat healthy and that we can eat a wide variety of healthy food that in paleolithic times wouldn’t be available but we just simply choose to eat unhealthy food for convince, expense and because we “think” it tastes good.

How to stop negative seo

You may be penalized by google or any other search engine for that matter by not something you have done but by something your competition has done to YOUR website…Negative seo it is real… something that has emerged since the google penguin update that analyzes back links pointing to your website looking at whether the back links pointing to your website are genuine or just pure rubbish. There are even people now selling negative seo services online…. and these services wouldn’t exist if people wouldn’t be buying from them.  Simple fact of capitalism is that people will stoop to any lows to get to the top…. and there is only once place on top of google so it really is a dog eat dog world out there in the seo world.

So say your at the top of google or near the top how do you protect yourself from negative seo from one of your competitors? Well its simple use this simple principle “You take me down i drag you down with me…” Now that in no way means negative seo them back even though it sound a bit like that, the thing i am talking about is far more effective and helps ensure negative seo doesn’t exist in the first place.

Back link to your competitors. Simple.

It is as easy as this. By linking to your competitors site not only will it deter them from doing negative seo to your website as they will not want to risk then effecting there own site in some way but it will also give you a boost in google.. as google rewards sites that link to other relative websites…read  why here… so it doesn’t mean that if you link to your competitors you will then get outranked by them/ Not only that but you might actually become friends with your competitors and they may link back to you in other posts as it is only polite to do so (is more the case with blogs than shops)….

A few cons of this method include

You competitors may not see your links to their website and do negative seo on your website anyway.

Sometimes  negative seo mayn’t be from you main competitors on the first page but from a new website so you might not know who you should be linking to to protect your website.

The things you shouldn’t do if you are a victim of negative seo

Worry to much… if your website is old, established and already has lots of high pr good quality back links.. it will take a big negative campaign over a couple of months or years to see your rankings drop. There are lots of authority websites out there which have been hit by negative seo but are still up there because they are seen as a authority by google.

Another thing you shouldn’t do is wage war and negative seo people or others back in response yes you may drag them down to but if you really have been hit by negative seo hard then its best to focus on a new website and build that one up…. You dont always know who is doing it too…War will only waste your time if you are already been shoved to the serp abyss. You may think what if you negative seo everyone to restore your rankings.. but this will take up a lot of time and resources and isn’t effective at all because new website come along all the time so its best to start again with a fresh website.

If you do start a new website thanks to negative seo, make sure you get as many  high pr backlinks as you can as new websites are always far easier to be penalized than old ones… so you need a good link profile.

One positive from negative seo<<< more white hat links from others

At least there is (hopefully) going to be one upside to negative seo… more people will backlink to other peoples websites!
