Slimming Pills

Obesity is something which is the after effect of our hectic life style; a life style in which we are engaged with our office work most of the times a day and not involve in any physical activities. So much so that we don’t get time to do proper exercise for our body and keep it healthy and fit. That’s probably why people are going after various methods to shred weight and look fit.

Having slimming pills is a way to reduce weight. But there are umpteen pills available in the market; some of which are highly effective while some others are just there to get money out of you. That’s where having a website that reviews and rates slimming pills and gives recommendations as to which one to choose helps. Slimming Pills Review site does just that. They also have a system with which consumers and experts can give feedback on a particular pill, which will be useful for a person who is planning to go for it.

High speed internet connection

High speed internet connection is something that’s quite unavoidable in a modern home. We use the internet for anything and everything. Right from buying grocery to booking flight tickets, internet has become very much a part of our life. Initially all we needed was a low speed internet connection as most of the sites were text based and required only low bandwidth. But today, websites are beaming with content that require very high bandwidth. Thus arise the need of high speed internet connection.

High speed internet connection allows people to browse through the latest the internet has to offer. It allows seamless and glitch free viewing of sites like YouTube that provide rich video content and various other sites that showcase streaming content, which requires higher bandwidth. Charter is one such internet service provider who offers high speed internet connection.

Charter Laptop a Day Giveaway, is its upcoming campaign through which they give one laptop per day for 30 days. For entering the give away, all one has to do is to order one or more Charter services online. Apart from the lucky draw of laptop per day, all those who buy the site’s services online are eligible for a free shell gas gift card. I hope every one of you make use of this fabulous offer.

Of IT and Dieting

I used to be so thin at college that I always failed to manage the BMI requirements. 4 years into working in a job where I hardly move during office hours, I have grown to stay within BMI limits now; with a fat tummy though. Since I have managed the weight requirements only with a fat paunch, I know I still am a failure in the health department. Apparently, that is the case with most of the IT guys, due to the nature of their job!

Few of my friends have joined various weight loss programs like VLCC, Inspirations and Vibes where they have to spend a lot of time in working out and following a strict diet to lose weight. I was wondering what those people would do who can’t take that much time out of their busy work schedule. That is when I heard about diet pills in general and extreme acai berry in particular. Diet pills apparently have some fat burning ingredients in it that will drain extra fat from the body.

But how to know about the available diet pills in the market? Then I came across this diet pill review site that makes the selection easier. With their help a person can find out the exact pill he/she wants.

Web Hosting

Ever since I started blogging, I have been using blogger as the platform. The main reason is that its service is available free of cost, for all you need is a Google account. Besides that, Google provides the basic stuff required for blogging. But being free also means having limited freedom. Apart from changing themes and adding or removing widgets, I am not able to do the kind of customizations I want in my blog.

There is not much of an option I have if I want to do a little more tweaking in my blog that’s hosted in platforms like blogger, word-press live-journal etc. A solution to this issue is to go for a custom domain name (URL) and buy some server space from a private web hosting company and have my blog hosted with them. But then there are a lot of private web hosting companies out there and how to choose the one I want?

That’s when I came across this site that has listed down the top web hosting packages available in the internet. The site gives an option for the user to filter out the kind of hosting he wants depending upon his personal needs. The site also gives the profile of the web hosting company. These entire features would make it easier for the user to finalize the web hosting company he shall go for.

Numerology mania

These days Bollywood films release with strange names. By strange names I mean Singh is Kinng, Kismat Konnection etc. Guess you got it. The English words in these movie names are distorted based on suggestions from certain numerologists, who predict that if king is written as kinng and connection as Konnection, the movie will gross in the box office! Now, that is awful!

I’ve never heard of any film that’s made decently becoming a flop in theatres. If that is the case, I feel film makers, instead of working hard to make good films, are focusing their attention on such petty stuff as numerology and sorts and then making bad films which flop anyways.

Ekta Kapoor’s ‘K’ mania is another example, where all of her serials start with the letter ‘K’. So much so that the great epic of India becomes ‘Kahani Hamaray Mahabharat Ki’ now!

When language, culture etc. are tainted for the inability to make good films/serials, I feel we are on an unscrupulous path. And I wonder; who these numerologists are? Are they linguists? And aren’t these blind beliefs of twenty first century?
