Man Made Diamonds – Save Big Money And Avoid Mined

Man Made Diamonds – Save Big Money And Avoid Mined Diamond Scams

by: Robert Joseph

High quality man made diamonds are a bargain at about $80 per carat, and they do not increase in price exponentially as carat weight increases. For example, a one-carat synthetic diamond costs about $80; a three-carat man made diamond would then sell for $240. A one-carat mined diamond that sells for $3000 would go for $45,000 in a three-carat size, all things being equal, which with mined diamonds is never the case. Perplexing comparative evaluations, exponential price growth, consumer confusion, and the reality of diamond industry antics is why the mined diamond business is awash in dirty tricks. Here are descriptions of the most sneaky and pervasive mined diamond scams:

Are Obese Women Getting Short-Changed By Chemother

Are Obese Women Getting Short-Changed By Chemotherapy Treatments?

by: Naweko San-Joyz

How much chemotherapy does an obese woman need? Typically an obese woman with breast cancer would receive reduced doses of chemotherapy as they battle breast cancer. Back in June of 2005, a study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine concluded that obese women should receive chemotherapy based on actual women, and not in reduced amounts as the standard practice.
And now again a study presented in the August 2005 edition of Lancet claims that doctors should not reduce chemotherapy doses for obese women when no receptors for the hormone oestrogen have been found on the breast cancer cells. This type of cancer is called oestrogen-receptor negative.
Clinicians often reduce chemotherapy doses for obes...

“An Ultimately Feminine Experience”

“An Ultimately Feminine Experience”

by: Angela Butera Dickson

Having my period is a feminine experience. I don’t think of menstruation as a punishment, a sentence, a burden or something I want to be rid of. It is the natural flow of female hormones. Those hormones protect my bones, my heart, my sex drive, my skin and more. And I know that menstruation is often a barometer of a woman’s reproductive health, showing that her body is running smoothly. Menstruating can sometimes be uncomfortable and a bit of a hassle but I can live with both for the benefits those hormones provide.
Culture vs. Change
Patriarchal views have been subjugating women for centuries. D.H...

Horology – Back in Time

Horology – Back in Time

by: Martin Smith

You should be familiar with some terminology before you learn about watches. Horology is the art of making clocks, watches and other devices for telling time and it is also the study/science of measuring time. An effort has been made to measure time since man appeared on earth.
Using candles marked at intervals, tracking the sun in the sky, oil lamps with marked reservoirs, and hour/sandglasses are some of the ways in which time was measured. Cords with knots were use as well as small metal or stone mazes filled with incense that burned at a certain rate. Water clocks did not rely upon the watching of the sky or of the sun.
Around 1500 B.C. the earliest water clock was found in Amenhotep’s tomb...

The Emergent Feminine

The Emergent Feminine

by: Judith Richardson

In the beginning of 1990 I was being guided to explore the nature of feminine and masculine, feeling the shift in the re-emergence of feminine energy. As a storyteller, I am called to “seed” the story, myth, legend through the mediums of words, sound and movement, whereby individuals can choose to become stimulated and awakened.
The historical role of women is often visible only through the records kept by men, which often minimizes or distorts the role of women in the shaping of culture and society. Much of the material that has been passed down to us reflects a male bias that does not feel whole. Building ourselves up by putting others down keeps us stuck; I choose to acknowledge and move forward from the positive past.

Dolphin Jewelry Promotes Environmental Awareness

Dolphin Jewelry Promotes Environmental Awareness

by: Sam Serio

“And when the day comes that we can communicate intelligently with dolphins, they may introduce us to the concept of survival without aggression, and the true joy of living, which at present eludes us. In that circumstance what they have to teach us would be infinitely more valuable than anything we could offer them in exchange.” — Horace Dobbs
First of all, let’s take a look at the rationale behind dolphin jewelry. What makes dolphins so attractive as jewelry motifs? Moreover, what would make them so important as to deserve a second look by jewelry-lovers, especially the socially conscientious?
Well, for one thing — if there is any ocean-dwelling creature that is said to be the smartest and most compassionate – it is the dolph...

Ceromancy: The Fine Art of Candle Reading

Ceromancy: The Fine Art of Candle Reading

by: Sam Stevens

Lately, I have been asked a lot of questions in the Psychic Realm chatroom about “ceromancy”. That is the fine art of reading a situation by studying the way a candle burns. Are the flames leaping high? Is the wax sizzling and crackling and popping? What does it mean when the flame goes out?
Many people in the Realm over the last year have become avid candle-burners and realized quite instinctively that the way a candle is behaving is often a mirror of the situation as it presently exists and its outcome. It is, after all, one of the world’s most ancient forms of divination. The leaping and reaching candle flames are seen to represent the souls of the individuals involved in the situation being read...

You’ve likely heard about or seen the impact that the ugg sheep skin boot has made in the world of fashion recently. It’s one thing for the boot to be trendy, but what about beneficial?

Is Bigger Better? The How-To’s When Shopping For D

Is Bigger Better? The How-To’s When Shopping For Diamonds

by: Alex Miller

Buying a diamond can be an exhilarating but daunting adventure, especially if you’re a newbie.
If I could offer only one piece of advice it would be this: Learn as much as you can about the 4Cs before you go shopping.
For the uninitiated, that’s cut, color, clarity and carat weight. And I like to add one more – common sense.
Choosing the perfect diamond (and there’s no such thing as the “perfect” diamond, although a few have come close) is as much a matter of personal taste as it is a matter of the diamond’s characteristics.
Some couples are willing to forego quality for size, others prefer the brilliance of a flawless blue-white diamond over a larger stone with less clarity...

Wanted… Experienced Women who can Make a Difference

by: Jo Ball

The kids have taken the best years of your life. You gave it all willingly – even through the tantrums and the constant ‘Why? Why?’ of childhood into the raging hormones and cupboard raiding of teenage.
Now they’ve moved on and you’ve moved to mid-life. With the financial pressures of raising a family gone, you’ve begun to think about you for the first time in a couple of decades. You find yourself wondering what you used to do before you had children, or, more to the point, what you’re going to do now.
There’s got to be a good decade or two left for you to work, but you’re capable and could do most jobs standing on your head, with your eyes shut and your hands tied behind your back...

Keep a Man Coming Back for More

Keep a Man Coming Back for More

by: Terry Hernon MacDonald

Ben* has been happily married for 19 years. He recently told me the prime reason he married his wife is because, “She was the only girl I dated who could control me.”
I had no idea what he was talking about. I don’t know many people, men or women, who enjoy being controlled.
“What do you mean?” I asked.
“I dated a lot of girls, some of them pretty seriously. I was actually close to being engaged to one of them, but I didn’t go through with it because she couldn’t control me.
But my wife Christine* could. If I wanted to go out with my friends, she’d say, ‘Have fun,’ and that was it.
It was such a change from the other girls I dated, who used to give me a hard time, wanted to know where I was going and why they couldn’t come with me...

5 Tips To Select The Best Wedding Reception Location

by: Tim and Tammy Smith

Being disc jockeys, we get the opportunity to evaluate many reception facilities while having little or no bias to “sell” one location over another. Most Brides and Grooms know where they will be holding the ceremony before they decide where to have the reception, so we have compiled five observations that can help you when selecting your venue.

Secrets To Get To The Heart Of Your Loved One

Secrets To Get To The Heart Of Your Loved One

by: Caroline Therancy

The other day, I was home with my sweet love when my sister called. She was in a bad mood because she was babysitting my cat (I was out of town) and my cat had made a mess in her sofa. I was sorry that happened. I went in the bedroom to think it over in silence.
After a while, my sweet love joined me and the first thing he said was :
‘’I can see this situation seems to bother you, isn’t it?’’
In that moment, I thought he was the greatest boyfriend ever. I felt understood and comforted. I was in a better disposition to be the best partner that I could be for him. Then I realized that he was talking the same language of love as mine. I am a Visual and I understand better when we communicate with me in visual ways...

Crack the Clandestine Code of Diamonds

by: M J Plaster

Precious, brilliant and expensive—why wouldn’t diamonds be a girl’s best friend? When giving the most significant gift of a lifetime, most men, and even the women who receive them, know precious little about diamonds.

Crack the vocabulary, and you’ll be on your way to purchasing your first diamond with confidence.
The Four Cs
