I Have Herpes

By Vance Larson Having an STD can be scary. Do you know what is even scarier? The stigma that comes along with it.Actually, I don't. But what was your first thought? Did your opinion of me change? I ask, because this is a very real situation that many have to face on a daily basis. Let's talk about stigma.Let me start with a quick story that happened to me. About 30 years ago I was working as a crisis counselor for the HIV/AIDS communities. And while many of my clients had multiple health issues and co-occurring disorders, it seemed like so many people wanted to know what it was like working with someone with AIDS? While it is true that I entered the AIDS era at a time {late 80's early 90's} when we were still learning about the modes of transmission and pathology, there was a stigma attached to it that scared, upset and downright pissed some people off. I can recall at one AIDS march in Washington DC, there was a church group there screaming the most vile things to u…

Benefits of Hiring Boutique Technology Consulting Firms

By John DsouzaHere are the advantages that a small firm has over a large IT firm:Specialized Services
If you are looking for specialized services such as education endowment technology, legal services etc, it is best to hire a boutique technology firm that specializes in that particular field. These boutique firms not only keep themselves abreast of their respective field, but also keep a tab on upcoming global trends, changes in their field and therefore can offer matchless services. Bigger firms which sell everything under their cart can never match the experience and expertise of boutique firms catering to specific services.Responsive management
A small IT firm will have fewer tiers and it is more likely that the consultants working on your solution are more responsive to your ideas and issues. Also, with fewer tiers in between the management and the customer, it is quite likely that the clients will be directly dealing with the top management and as such the response would be mu…

How To Start A Low Carb Diet

By Vladimir CiplicLow carb diets include cutting out carbohydrates from your diet, or at least limiting them, and adding more proteins and fats. But even if you cut out grains, starchy vegetables and fruits, will it still help you lose weight, and even more importantly, will you be healthy and will the weight loss results last?If you cut out all vegetables, fruits and grains, the answer is NO. Your body needs the nutrients it gets from those important foods to keep you healthy. In fact, if all you eat is protein and fat, you are more at risk of heart disease, cancer and other types of diseases. But there is a way you can follow low carb diets and still be healthy. Here's how.Eat whole grains instead of processed grains like white rice and white bread. Those are empty carbs, while whole grains can actually help you lose weight. Eat brown rice, for example, instead of bread or pasta.Select green, leafy vegetables and broccoli. A leafy vegetable, like kale for example, paired with b…

What Is Live Streaming HDTV Service?

By Scott KleinThe new buzz in the TV and media space is "Live Streaming HDTV." Let me say this before I answer that question: "In the next 2-3 years Live Streaming HDTV will out subscribe the Dish and Cable."So, what exactly is live streaming TV service? As opposed to receiving service from a satellite dish or a cable running through your house your TV service "streams" through your Internet connection. So if you don't have an internet connection then you can't stream.Assuming that you have the internet all you do is download an app that will have all the live streaming channels. Like any other app that you download, that has certain functions and abilities the app that you'd download to stream will access all the main channels that you already watch. Let's say that you like to watch TBS. Your current provider allows you to watch TBS as one of their channels. Your live streaming service will also include that channel. In fact, from my exp…
