Now say good bye to extra fats

There are lots of ways to lose weight. The question is how do you lose weight and keep it off? The bottom line with weight loss is that you have to eat fewer calories than you burn. Adopting sensible behaviors and sound eating habits that you can live with for a lifetime is weight control that works. You can still have the foods you love – just eat them in small portions, balance them with other foods, and eat a variety of nutritious foods each day. Don’t try to manage your stress with food. Many people eat in response to stress. Unfortunately, food does not help you cope with stress; it simply adds calories to your daily total. Find more effective alternatives: exercise, take a bath, call a friend, surf the internet.

• The great American author and satirist Mark Twain would come to mind “Losing weight is easy. I’ve done it hundreds of time.”

• Clench your fists when you have a food craving. A series of studies published in the Journal of Consumer Research in 2011 found that people were better able to control their impulses when they tightened a muscle for at least 30 seconds.

• Women burned more fat and calories when they ate 1,000 to 1,400 milligrams of calcium per day, according to findings published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. That’s three to four servings of dairy.

• People, who jiggle their legs, talk with their hands, and incorporate small movements into their day can burn as much as 350 extra calories daily, according to research from the Mayo Clinic.

You need to have realistic weight-loss goals, in terms of losing the weight and in terms of the target weigh you would like to reach”. Although a lot of people who get this procedure don’t achieve their weight loss targets, this is because they don’t introduce exercise into their daily lives. Losing an average of 1kg a week through a moderate exercise and a balanced diet is best for the body.

How to delete windows folder on other drive

Most of the times you have been in a situation where you have two windows installed on two different drives. One of them is Windows 7 and other version you want to delete but you don’t know how to delete windows folder on other drive because the OS doesn’t let you do so.

There are many ways to do so. One of them is to Take Ownership. You can do so by Right Clicking on Folder->Properties->Security->Advanced->Owner->Edit, Select your username, and check the “Replace the owner on sub containers and objects” box and click OK, and then try deleting it.

If the above option doesn’t work for because Windows 7 doesn’t allow you to delete the system folder in this way, this was the case with me.

So the solution is to try to download and install a very useful utility by clicking here. Installation procedure is described on the link.

It will show you a context menu item as show below.

Take Ownership

Clicking the Take Ownership item will take the ownership of folder and its contents. Then you can just right click and delete that particular folder.

Hopefully you will be able to get rid of other version of windows which you don’t want to use or you cannot delete..

Brand yourself for your career success

You ever had a feeling that someone else is getting credit for your good work. It’s a truth which we cannot deny and that someone can be your colleague, your manager, your subordinate (who is trying to be smart in front of management). So you should brand yourself for your career success and to avoid such kind of situations.

You will notice, only those people will have enjoyed far greater success who have been the most conscious of the importance of their reputation, or “brand”. This means that the competent individuals who put little more effort to be properly recognized for their success are the one enjoying long term benefits. Although there might be some other people as well who were part of that particular success story.

This doesn’t mean that they didn’t share the success recognition with others who deserved it as well. But the way they reinforced their value to the organization without taking away the value of others who were also involved is good. It’s a good management approach as well as a smart career strategy.

You can think of it in another way e.g. you are looking for someone internally to head an important department, selecting the lead for a new initiative or want to make an existing department more efficient, the first person comes to your mind is the one having reputation of getting things done.

In the same way, if you are looking to hire someone who can bring fresh and innovative ideas, you will go to find out a person in the industry who has a good reputation or brand.

So in the end it is always for your benefit to build up your brand. If you are starting a new business, focus on one-branding approach, select your brand carefully and go for it. Same goes for the corporate as well. Success of individuals benefits the organization. Do not let anybody to steal your ideas. Strive for smart career management by taking credit of your work.

Top 10 reasons you should quit IT field

If you are an IT pro, you know that IT is a tough field and you should keep yourself updated with latest development in your field of work as well as other technological advancements. If you are not really up for the challenge, there will be someone else who is.

There is a question, how do you know whether you are really suitable for IT or not? Here are Top 10 reasons you should quit IT field, which describe that you are not fitting into this field.

1. Lack of patience

IT requires patience, if some problem occurs, whether it’s in the code, network, DB or anywhere related to IT, it requires time and patience to debug and solve it. If you don’t have patience you will give up, you will lose your mind, you will lose the track. There is another way of your patience being tested and that is by the end user. The problem is, sometimes end user doesn’t know anything about technology and they ask you questions to frustrate you. If you lose patience you are not fit for this field.

2. Not willing to continue the education

IT is always evolving to new standards, methods, technologies, frameworks etc. If you don’t have a desire to continuous learning, you cannot keep up the pace with this field. You should always be constantly learning something new. Learning new things can be in the form of taking classes, attending workshops, doing certification or reading technical stuff either online or in the form of physical books.

3. No work outside 9-to-5

Disaster doesn’t come within 9-to-5. Servers can go down whenever they want. Machines can stop working at any time. Also you cannot do the deployments in working hours but the business must go on. So you should be willing to work outside of office hours. It might be a midnight when you have to bring the server up and running. If you refuse to work like this, you are out of this field

4. You don’t like customers/end users

IT field doesn’t build anything for machines; it builds the systems for customers, clients and end users. If you don’t like to interact with them, you don’t want to listen to them, you don’t want to solve their problems then you should consider changing your career.

5. You give up too quickly

This means how much consistent you are in solving a problem, you give up too quickly or you go till the end to resolve the issue. If you give up too quickly that means you left the problem unsolved which is not an acceptable approach in the field of IT.

6. You get frustrated easily

In this field anyone can get frustrated. If you become frustrated too quickly and you can’t keep your nerves calm then you will be suffering from high blood pressure all the time. In this case definitely it’s not a right field for you.

7. No multitasking

In the field of IT everybody is doing multitasking, i.e. doing multiple things at a given point in a day. You might be handling multiple projects, dealing with multiple issues at the same time. If you try to stick to one task at a time, this field is not going to accept you as a pro. This doesn’t mean that single minded people cannot succeed in this field but they will have a tougher time as compared to the multitasking pro.

8. Dream of big promotions

In the field of IT you cannot get big promotions, or you cannot climb up the corporate ladder. If you dream of climbing up and getting more promotions then you should consider going to some other field. Because in IT you can go to CIO at max, but if you are aiming to become CEO then IT might not be a right field for you.

9. You hate technology

If you hate technology and you still work in this field which you hate, there will be an added level of frustration you will experience and it might end up your career earlier than expected.

10. 24/7 availability

You shouldn’t turn you phone off at night but you should be available 24/7. Many IT pros work like this and their routine revolve around networks. If they don’t want to work like this, they might not have their jobs in hand. Sometimes IT job runs in the background waiting to pull you from sleep, family functions, and birthday parties. If you tend to turn you phone off after work hours or ignore calls from office then you are not fit for this field.

If you suffer from any of the signs above, don’t consider yourself out of this field but there are few more signs out of above ones appearing in you then should rethink over your career choice.

Five ways IT departments waste money

This article has been taken from the following URL:

 

http://blogs.techrepublic.com.com/hiner/?p=3005&tag=nl.e099.dl091104&tag=nl.e099

 

Lets look at five of the most common ways that IT lets some of those precious dollars slip right through their fingers.

 

No. 1: Wasting energy

 

The electric bill is a huge expense for most companies and the IT department is a BIG user of energy. You can save more money than you might suspect by adopting even a few quick energy-saving tips. For example, IT personnel can power off unused servers and systems, force power-saving settings on desktops with solutions like Verdiem Surveyor, and simply turn off the lights when not needed in IT offices and server rooms. And that’s just the tip of iceberg.

No. 2: Spending too much on mobile technology

Smartphones and mobile devices are the hip gadgets for IT pros, but company-provided equipment and plans may be costing more than necessary. A recent survey showed that only one out of four employees uses 75% or more of the voice minutes their companies are paying for, for example, and almost half have services on their plans that they never use at all.

 

No. 3: Using consultants when the job could be done by staff

 

It’s a common scenario: Employees have been telling management for months or years that changes need to be made, but they’ve been ignored. Then the company hires a consultant, who charges hundreds of thousands of dollars to do a study and arrives at the same conclusion. If your staff has expertise in a particular area, it’s generally more cost effective to allow them to do the job than to bring in an outsider who will spend a slew of billable hours getting up to speed on how your company operates and what its needs are.

 

No. 4: Hiring full-time employees when contractors would be more cost effective

The flip side of the previous item involves being afraid to use consultants or contractors when it’s appropriate. Hiring full-time employees to handle a workload that’s likely to be temporary in the hope that you can eventually move them on to something else once the project is over. This is when independent contractors make sense, especially when you have great staff members who can guide and manage those contractors.

 

No. 5: Overspending on hardware

 

Buying new hardware can actually save you money, if you do it right, especially when you’re doing server consolidation or buying hardware that’s less expensive to maintain due to lower maintenance costs or better power savings. Where a lot of companies waste money is by purchasing equipment for a project that requires intensive resources for only for a limited time. An alternative option is to use a cloud-based service like Amazon AWS that allows you to purchase server capacity that you can scale up or down to fit your needs.
