Hot Shot Z Trains

Hot Shot Z Trains

In the last portion of the 20th Century, this train was known on the Atchinson, Topeka & Santa Fe as the 991. Seen here, the ZWSPNBY speeds through Empire, CA., on a warm afternoon. This train crew is doing their best to make up time as computers in Fort Worth, TX., are causing havoc system wide. Meanwhile, the Amtrak California San Joaquin train I was aiming for, leaves a trail of dust in the distance.

Healing A Broken Heart From Love – Take Time To Realize

Healing A Broken Heart From Love – Take Time To Realize
Healing a broken heart from love? Healing is a difficult process to attain because before it, you will be facing rough roads first. But, even if it seems to possible to do, things will fall into place and in time and sooner or later, you will be able to overcome all the pain and hurt from the break up. Remember, it will take time and in your part, you will be feeling better as you you will be getting to live your life once more.

I know that last sentence may sound odd. You may be saying to yourself, ‘Well that’s stupid, of course I want to get over my pain’. In a way though many people actually hold on to their pain. They do not actually mean it and may be even unaware about it, but really they do it more often than not. If you keep on doing such holding back of feelings without your awareness, you will not be able to successfully overcome it.

Make sure you are not so much hurt to the point of being afraid of committing again for something new. If you are, you really should consider finding some help. Life is always beautiful and living with hurt and fear can make you vain and bitter. You will never learn to live a happy and beautiful life if in your heart are grudges and pain.

A therapist can help you work through all your hurt and pain and help you find ways to heal them so that some day you can move on and find love again.

While learning to heal, take some time to live by your own. This time, forget about dating and all you have to do is to take time to be with your friends and do things that you enjoy when you are with them.

Do you still remember when you were still single? What are the things that you are interested in and what do you do that you enjoy a lot? Most of us put at least a little of ourselves on hold when we start dating someone else. That’s the way it really works. Our partner sometimes does not like what we are doing even if you love and like it, so when you are still together, you cannot do those things you love and enjoy. Now that you are single, take time to do all those things. Those things will make you know yourself more and they will give you great feeling of love and contentment which can be a great help on the process of healing a broken heart from love.

One thing also to work out is to be able to make things happen for you, those things that you selflessly desire to do. Actually, these are the things that you supposedly do but you have given up for the sake of the relationship. The best time to do them is now. Have you been meaning to take a class, learn a new language, or just rearrange your living room? This will be a good start for you, go for it and enjoy the time being. You might not think that you can have any fun quite yet but when you start doing the things you have always wanted to do you might just be surprised at how good you will start to feel. Keep in mind that when you always find every reason to be happy, it is one way of showing that you are on the process of healing a broken heart from love.

Johnny Wayne personally believes that all relationship can be saved but it all depends on how much effort is being put in. You can find out more about our Review of Second Chance Romance and the tips on How To Get Over Being Dumped.

How To Maximize the Benefits of Real Time MLM Leads

How To Maximize the Benefits of Real Time MLM Leads

Maximize the Benefits of Real Time MLM Leads

If you are hoping to build your own multi-level marketing force, finding a source of real time MLM leads is the key to doing so. Converting MLM contacts is far different from the process of converting leads for any other type of promotional outreach. Often, the individuals who supply their names are actively seeking out home business opportunities. As such, they will generally have supplied their contact information to a number of similar companies. The one with whom they choose to partner will often be the first that reaches out to them.

Whether you are generating your own leads or working with a company who supplies them, make sure that you contact them as soon as they come in. Few leads in MLM are exclusive, so timing is everything in winning conversions. The initial outreach should be as close to immediate as possible. Not only that, but staff must be prepared to field responses as soon as they come in. Response rates tend to be high, so do not send out emails when you will be out of the office.

Have all the information that converts will need to get started immediately read to send. Most individuals who are looking to start work as an affiliate are willing to start right away, and you should be ready for them to do so as well. Create informational packets of information to send electronically to all respondents. They should contain all the information that they need to get started, including a synopsis of what your company does and an idea of what their marketing copy should look like.

Be willing to have live chats with contacts as necessary. Though initial exchanges are often done via email, business managers should be prepared to schedule phone calls and live chats for the next few days after each email blast. This will give new converts the opportunity to ask any questions they may have and talk about your expectations and best practices.

Real time MLM leads are the key to creating a network of marketers who can help you promote your business and build your client base. If you have never worked with affiliates in the past, an experienced network professional can help walk you through the process of getting started.

Don Drapers is a human researching machine and being part of the internet by writing useful articles about Real Time MLM Leads is just one of many “must read before you buy” articles he has written in the sales lead industry. Before you spend marketing dollars on Leads of any kind, make certain you visit now, and learn what you must to say to a Real Time MLM Leads provider so they’ll WANT to give you the very best leads they have. Alternatively, say these wrong things to any lead provider and you are highly likely to get burned. Visit and quickly learn how to be in control of your lead providers. Knowledge is power. How smart are you?

The Importance Of Real Time Payment Processing & Multiple Payment Options

The Importance Of Real Time Payment Processing & Multiple Payment Options
An event is a medley, where attendees and delegates from around the world and walks of life congregate. To provide registration convenience for registrants, you have already added an online registration option. This is an excellent start to doubling your attendee numbers. However, to truly maximize your attendee numbers, your real time payment processing facility needs to have multiple payment options.

Why? Here are some reasons ‘why’ it is necessary to add a real time payment processing and multiple payment options to your event website:

Offer delegates registration ease and convenience
An event website without a real time payment processing solution is like a prettily packaged present without anything inside. If your event website does not have a real time payment processing solution, you are losing out on a great opportunity to close the sale with a registrant and ensuring that your profit numbers look healthy. By adding a real time payment processing solution with multiple payment options to your website, you encourage interested parties to register immediately and can close the deal by collecting the registration fee instantly. This is a mutually beneficial feature as you are assured of attendee attendance and the attendee receives instant confirmation regarding his or her registration.

Lack of payment options raises the number of abandoned registrations
Audience at an event is typically diverse and such, not all of them will have a credit card. If you only offer credit cards as a payment option on your website, you will find a lot of mid-process abandoned registrations. By offering them multiple payment options, you widen your market reach. In fact, accepting multiple payment options on your event website is one sure fire way to reduce the number of mid-registration abandonments.

Instant payments, no fraud concerns & no more chasing delegates for payments
As an event organizer, you know that potential delegates or attendees call and block seats but fail to pay for them promptly. You either end up constantly calling them to remind them to pay or have empty seats and a loss in potential revenue. A real time payment processing solution prevents such situations from happening as the registrant confirms his registration by paying for registration or ticket instantly. It automatically processes the transaction as long as you have seats available and the delegate has the funds to pay. If you don’t have seats left, the registrant is generally transferred to a waitlist sign page. If the card is not valid or he lacks funds, the transaction is declined, leaving your seats open for other interested parties.

To summarize, all delegates are different – they come from different locations, they have accounts with different banks etc. If you want to successfully target and capture, your diverse target audience, you have to ensure that your online registration and payment processing solution has the ability to accept payments using multiple payment options.

Real Time Streaming Protocol

Real Time Streaming Protocol
Presentation control protocol, commonly known as Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP), is a standard protocol widely used for efficiently controlling the streaming of audio and video data over the internet. The protocol is developed by Multiparty Multimedia Session Control Working Group (MMUSIC WG), also a joint venture work of RealNetworks, Netscape Communications and Columbia University during 1990s.

Unlike the traditional HTTP which uses progressive technique, real-time streaming protocol delivers continuous streams of requested data without actually storing it on the hard disk, the technique known as real-time streaming, thus acts like a remote control enabling the flow on demand. The protocol is used in applications such as Windows Media Player, QuickTime, RealPlayer, MPEG4IP, JavaFX SDK for Windows platform, Skype, for uni-cast streaming (where data transfer occurs between one client and one server) and multi-cast streaming( between one server and multiple clients).

Real-time streaming protocol uses a combination of protocols such as TCP (connection based protocol), UDP (connectionless protocol), and RTP to achieve various functions by maintaining session/state between server and client through an identifier. In other words, the RTSP server and client can send requests simultaneously by choosing the appropriate delivery mechanism, an advantage over other protocol types.

The session begins with Setup from the client or already defined transport information that indicates the server to allocate resource for data stream, Play, where the data is transmitted according to the request from client, Pause, in which the streaming is temporarily disabled without actually disconnecting the server, Record, where the streaming data is recorded by the client as per the time-stamp carrying the information of start and end time, and Close, where the resources are freed and the client-server session comes to an end.

The other advantage of RTSP is, it is extendable, in the sense new features, parameters and methods can be easily added while coding and/or can include features from other protocols like HTTP, TCP etc. The RTSP provides secure and reliable connection by letting the end user choose the appropriate authentication type.

Since the data can arrive from various servers, this type of protocol is generally prescribed for professional presentations. Also, the client can identify which features are enabled and which are not, in the requested server, making that information available for other purposes.

RTSP uses the standard ISO 10646 UTF-8 encoding (hence called a text based protocol) where each lines are terminated by CRLF, which is then interpreted by the receiver on the other end. Due to this nature of the protocol, it is extensively implemented for scripting languages like Perl and VB. The RTSP is a proposed standard in its preliminary stage and hence some RTSP servers use RTP as the transport protocol and others RDP for the audio/video stream.

All data types are not supported by this type of connection and RTSP option is not recommended for those who do not want to compromise on video quality. The real time streaming protocol is vulnerable to packet loss, transmission delay, congestion and other jitters, just like any other communication protocols, but can prove to be advantageous in many instances such as a conference which could be viewable to many people at once regardless of location.

Construction Software With Real Time Payroll Data – A Worthy Investment

Construction Software With Real Time Payroll Data – A Worthy Investment

Having the right tools for a job is almost as important as having the skills necessary to complete the task.  Yet, many construction companies fail to see the need for a construction accounting software package that captures payroll data in real time.  No doubt they have the skills to complete the job, but this tool can help to make that job more profitable. 

Payroll is an inherent piece of any construction project budget and final cost.  It reflects the manpower labor costs necessary to complete the job.  As such, it is key to have this data at your fingertips at all times and it needs to be as accurate as possible.  The most accurate way to collect this data is in real time.  Having real time data allows decision makers to make sure the project is properly directed and helps them make better decisions before and after deviations are made from the plan.

Estimating up to date figures is inaccurate and takes time, which costs money.  The amount of time it takes is often increased due to the pay structure of many construction companies – often workers with more diverse skill sets receive higher wages.  Calculating the potential costs for 12 workers for varying time periods that have different wages can get confusing and will most certainly take time away from activities that a manager could be doing that add value to the project. 

Real time data leaves no need to estimate or get confused about the financial impacts of using a different labor force.  Even data that is only a day or two old can lead to ineffective monitoring of the project’s bottom line, which can result in decisions being made a day or two later than they should have been.  The impact of these 2-day-late decisions on the bottom line can be pretty big if you consider multiple decisions like this made over the life of a project that lasts for several months. 

These factors have led construction software manufacturers to begin including as much real time data as possible, for good reason.  Today’s market moves faster than ever and new risks arise every day, requiring decisions to be made in the middle of the project that were not expected.  Would you rather make those decisions with the most accurate data you can possibly have or with old data and some estimates?

Beware, however, that too much real time data can be overwhelming at first.  If you’re used to working with the old system of old data and projections, a wealth of real time data can be intimidating.  However, after an initial getting used to period, you’ll soon realize that real time data leads is simply the best tool you can have when it comes time to make those on-the-fly decisions. 

In a perfect world, every construction project would be executed exactly according to plans and would finish exactly on budget.  However, unexpected changes, weather, supply chain issues, and other common hiccups lead to projects that rarely (if ever) follow the initial plan. 

For example, perhaps a big milestone is approaching for a particular project and the supervisor realizes that he does not have the personnel on hand that was planned to complete the task.  As a result, the supervisor has a different group complete the task.  Thus, the actual cost of that piece of the project will either be over or under the budgeted amount.  With real time payroll data, decision makers will be able to see those different costs reflected in actual costs as they happen.  With this data, they can make the best possible decision for how to make up for the overages and finish on budget or how to continue to operate under budget. 

Construction software with real time payroll data gives companies an additional bit of flexibility when executing a project.  Since deviation from the original plan is more of “the rule” versus the “exception,” being able to move forward with the project with the most accurate data possible is a benefit that is most certainly worth having.
