    Going on dates is such a pleasant experience so make sure you will not ruin this special day in your life. (Photo: meetingwomensecrets.com)

    Having a date is a special event for a person’s life. Most of those having a date wished that everything will go smoothly on the special occasion. In reality sad to say but not all dates is a success. To get victory in a date there are four things you need to avoid.

    1. Eating too much

    To enjoy your date and get handsome rewards in the end you should be careful on the foods you eat. Make sure during your date your food intake is just normal in order not to ruin your date. If a person is focus more on eating than the actual date itself there is a very big tendency that your talk will be minimized which could be bad for the date. Always remember a date is a time to spend time and know someone better so better focus on the agenda at hand and not on the foods to take. The trick here is just to be calm and confident and to watch your food intake.

    2. Constant talk with your date

    Like what I said earlier, a date is the special occasion we spend time to know a person better.To achieve in this purpose you need to constantly talk with your date. To go on date is not easy that result in nervousness that will hinder our chance to talk more to our date. If you are a person who experiences nervousness especially in talking to people you need to carefully plan and rehearsed your date. Make sure when you are on a date you can talk more to your date in whatever topics the two of you might discuss. Your date will surely have a positive impression on you if your date conversation is marvelous.

    3. Unusual body movements

    One embarrassing tendency in a date is the unusual body movements caused by nervousness of the person going on a date. It is not good to look for the public most especially from your date if you drum your fingers on the table or the knee shake. What is bad about this type of movements is the fact that most of these are done subconsciously which means it hard to avoid. To counter this, a person just need to be fully aware of his body so that when this tendency starts to occur you can immediately focus yourself to the conversation and not allow this thing to ruin your date.

    4. Too much drinks

    Drinking too much is a big no in almost all occasions especially during a date. One or two drinks is fine but beyond this number could be disastrous for a person going on a date.If you drink too many the possibility of getting drunk and losing control of yourself is very much likely. If you want to leave impression with your date better be sober and avoid drinking too many.

    3. Understand your partner

    One key ingredient in keeping your marriage strong is to be patient always with your partner. It is a reality that being patient in all instances is not easy especially dealing with our own partners. If ever your patience is being tested in marriage just remember that you need to keep your cool for the sake of your relationship, children and love. To fully understand your partner require time to do some researched on information regarding your partner especially on the things that your partner love to do.

    4. Take time to discuss family matters constantly

    To avoid conflicts in marriage, couples should take time to discuss matter concerning their family such as finances, career plans, children and other matters that affect them as couples.

    In the wake of the global financial crisis, Toyota Motor Corporation has reasons to smile and to be optimistic these days.

    Toyota said based on their assessment their global production increased for the first time in a year in August. The biggest automaker in Japan is very happy with the latest data since they are on the road to recovery after the March 11 earthquake and tsunami in 2011.

    According to the data released by the company, Toyota’s production rose to  10.6 percent from a year earlier to 626,817 vehicles. The company revealed production rose at both domestic and overseas factories, especially in South Africa, Australia, Asia and Europe.

    Toyota said their exports of passenger cars also climbed 15 percent, but domestic sales fell more than 25 percent. Moreover, the company said they are preparing to ramp up production in the coming months to make up for losses caused by the March earthquake and tsunami, which wiped out auto parts suppliers.

    Between October and March 2012, it plans to build an extra 350,000 vehicles. Toyota was founded by Kiichiro Toyoda in 1937 as a spin-off from his father’s company Toyota Industries to create automobiles.

    Three years earlier, in 1934, while still a department of Toyota Industries, it created its first product, the Type A engine, and, in 1936, its first passenger car, the Toyota AA. Toyota Motor Corporation group companies are Toyota (including the Scion brand), Lexus, Daihatsu and Hino Motors, along with several “non-automotive” companies. TMC is part of the Toyota Group, one of the largest conglomerates in the world.

    The military defense of Taiwan from possible military attacks from China just got a much needed boost.

    This developed after the United States government is set to approved through Congress the request of their Asian ally to supply new arms and sophisticated radar gear for its existing F-16 fighter fleet as part of an upgrade package valued at up to $5.85 billion. According to reports, the US military will formally inform Congress on the request Taiwan this week.

    A US military official said Taiwan made the appeal to buy new military weapons in the wake of the growing military power of China. The official revealed the upgraded A/B models would have essentially the same capabilities as the C/D version Taiwan had sought at a lower price.

    Taiwan and China are at odds politically since the latter wants to control Taiwan as its territory. However, Taiwan asserted that they are an independent nation and not part of China. Military experts said if Taiwan achieves its goal of buying new weapons from US, the defense the highly industrialized island is made even stronger against possible attacks from China.

    Rumor: Facebook To Announce Partnership With Hulu

    18. September 2011

    Facebook is set to announce new features of TV and movie contents sharing on the widely popular social networking website. (Photo: hotclub101.com)

    Facebook had to face problems of losing millions of users due to the search giant Google’s social networking site, Google+. A recent threat from the hacker group Anonymous, through a video clip, is also a big reason to worry for Facebook. Ultimately, Facebook is now in a fix. However, in this situation, to gather more users, the CEO of the social networking giant, Mark Zuckerberg, is going to launch new features, sharing TV and movie contents on Facebook, at the f8 developer conference next week, according to a rumor.

    The main theme of the conference is to highlight a new music service. On the other hand, according to the rumor, Facebook is also going to strengthening its relation with premium TV content service, Hulu, in the conference.

    The new features would help users to see what their friends are watching on Hulu and share video content between their personal Facebook networks. Hulu will provide free content with a simple content sharing facility. Hulu also has a pay tier site named Hulu Plus, which has been offering free use for a month to encourage users to connect their Hulu accounts to Facebook.

    The source believes that though Facebook didn’t take the first step to form partnerships, it may select other video providers. However, there are also some premium TV content providers in the list of Facebook board members. “One source familiar with the conversations said Netflix is also very close to Facebook. Netflix CEO Reed Hastings is on the Facebook board, but because Netflix is a subscription site, is more difficult to integrate,” according to the New York Post.

    There is no doubt, the new step would be very effective to gather more users on Facebook. Obviously, a successful relation with the social networking giant Facebook will bring more video traffic for the sites.

To cope up with the difficult situation, couples should have a good communication lines with each other.  The couple should discuss their situation properly and hear each others side on the matter. Each of  the couple should set the barometer of their relationship to determine the expectation and concern of each other.

    B. Seek guidance from friends

    08. September 2011

    Switzerland is one of the places on earth that people need to live since the scenic country is considered as the most competitive nation today. (Photo: switzerland-trips.com)

    If there is one country that continue to grow amids the global economic crisis, that nation would definitely be Switzerland.

    According to the latest data from the World Economic Forum report, Switzerland ranked first in the most competitive economies in the world today. The data is taken from the survey among 14,000 executives in 142 countries and 12 categories which includes institutions; infrastructure; economic environment;health and primary education; higher education and training; goods market efficiency; labor market efficiency; financial market development; technological readiness; market size; business sophistication; and innovation.

    On the same report, it was discovered that the United States only ranked fifth, a notch lower to their fourth place ranking last year. Klaus Schwab, founder and chairman of the forum explained the low ranking of the US could be attributed to their weak economy and the low trust rating of its officials.

    Taking the second place in the prestigious list is Singapore. The forum said the  results show that while competitiveness in advanced economies has stagnated over recent years, it has improved in many emerging markets, helping their economies to become more robust and mirroring the shift in economic activity from the West to developing economies.

    Switzerland expressed joy over their position in the list and they hope to retain their standing next year. Switzerland is a federal republic consisting of 26 cantons, with Bern as the seat of the federal authorities. The country is situated in Western Europe, where it is bordered by Germany to the north, France to the west, Italy to the south, and Austria and Liechtenstein to the east. Switzerland is also the birthplace of the Red Cross and home to a large number of international organizations, including the second largest UN office.
