We humans are victims of uncertainties and in this respect there is no chance of any solace or peace. We are constantly bombarded with the new do theft, murder or burglary that is why it is becoming very difficult to enjoy a peaceful sleep at night. This is the prime reason why we are now constantly on the lookout at different options that can help us in creating better control over the unprecedented situations. More
Jambo! Hello to all! We recently returned from our wonderful trip to Zanzibar (which we love to call “Zanzi”) wish to give you hope and valuable tips if you want to spend a holiday in these parts …, like all journeys, especially in Africa, there are things very beautiful and less beautiful things, you just know everything and becomes more ‘simple! The topics are grouped by type …
For information vs we started three of us: myself (Fabio) my wife Kate and our 7 year old son Alexej December 6 (evening) and we came back on the 14th.
Before the trip ...
Tanzania (and thus Zanzibar) is a part of Africa where there is so endemic malaria, yellow fever and many other “bad” diseases that you find listed in any tourist book (The Lonely Planet ed. 2005 on Tanzania eg.). Of course we must not think too much otherwise you most ‘. If, however, you are likely to nature and worry normally … Change destination, there are many others with minor “problems” that unfortunately or fortunately are typical of the African regions.
Yellow fever: is not required but if you are coming directly from Italy flown away “dark continent”, from the capital or want to do a safari in Tanzania, is mandatory! The vaccine (like all vaccines) is done at the Department of National Health Service and is their a fee). Remember that it must be a few months (at least 2) before the trip because it needs a reminder to be 100% effective.
Malaria in Zanzibar, despite all the tour operators tranquilize, has continuously cases of malaria, especially children who do not have the money for treatment. And all the giorni9 year people die because of malaria. Malaria is transmitted by a mosquito female and the type of malaria present qs region is of the worst kind. And ‘curable, but the parasite that the cause may be present in our blood throughout our lives. There is no 100% cure for malaria and in some rare cases and could be deadly if taken later. This is not to say it, but it’s the truth.
Malaria prophylaxis never covers 100% but only 98%. That leaves some small chance of contracting the disease during prophylaxis, obviously if bitten by an infected mosquito. This is unlikely during the dry seasons from July to November, while the risk increases slightly as the top becomes more ‘moist. To be avoided is the period of the rainy season, from March to May, unless you are risk takers … During our stay at the resort there were no mosquitoes (or at least were very few …), especially on the coast it was very windy and probably that the away, but inside from dusk to dawn … It is not excluded.
The best defense is to equip themselves mosquito repellents (strong ones for the tropics or taking a homeopathic treatment that generates a smell on our skin that turns out to be unpleasant for the mosquitoes …).
Making the prophylaxis or not? Many people in the village have not achieved and we took Malarone.
And ‘the ultimate in care and prevention and is very well tolerated and has no side effects compared to Lariam, which seems to have a devastating effect on some subjects. The only difference is the price: Lariam is loanable and you pay only the cost of the recipe, not the Malarone and costs in Italy more than 53 € per pack. From 12 tablets. A stay of 7 days involves the consumption of 15 tablets (starting from the day before until 7 days after your return.) Who lives close to Switzerland, can ‘buy in pharmacies Swiss in little more’ than 40 € per pack with a saving of 25 % of
Hundreds of thousands of peoples go on holiday with their children in an exotic country.
Their distribution varies considerably in different geographic areas and, even in the presence of the same pathology (such as in the case of malaria), prophylaxis and therapy may be different depending on the country in which it is contracted the disease. More
If you’ve ever taken a vacation, chances are you’ve traveled by plane. Vacations can be very exciting and enjoyable, but they can easily become unpleasant when you experience irritation caused by dry skin. The following simple tips will help your skin stay hydrated and your vacation time enjoyable.
Drink plenty of water, non-caffeinated or alcoholic beverages. There is usually less than 25% moisture in a place, this is 10% less then the level of moisture found in the typical American home. Your skin loses a lot of moisture in these conditions. Therefore, I recommend you drink two glasses of eight ounces of water more than you normally would. I know this is not easy as it was – you can buy bottled water after they have passed through the TSA security check. It ‘important to drink water, in its purest form. Staying away from other beverages with alcohol and caffeine content, they can contribute to dehydration.
Give your legs a stretch, visiting the bathroom every hour to splash some water on my face. Not only did the short walk good for the circulation, water is another way to keep your skin hydrated.
Then moisturize after splash your face with water, rub in some moisturizer and let it “dry” to better absorb into your skin. Just remember that airport security does not allow solutions in a bottle larger than three ounces.
In addition, replenish the moisture in your eyes and the nasal passage by taking a spray over-the-counter nasal and eye drops. Airplane air dries these areas, so be sure to fill it often.
Once you have landed in sunny, warm destination, remember to apply sunscreen liberally and often, as in every three to four hours on bare skin. Sunscreen with UVA and UVB rays protect your skin against burns, which can also dry your skin out.
Taking care of your skin while on vacation will help make your holiday even more enjoyable from start to finish!
Tips for Notebooks
What should I do to evaluate the purchase of a laptop? What features should have my new notebook? Brand? Processor power? Amount of RAM? Capacity Hard Disk? Battery life? Model of video card?
These are all questions that arises who should buy a new laptop and unable to extricate themselves in the jungle of CPUs, gigabytes, megabytes, chips, Cache, FSB and various acronyms. Questions that in fact do not have a single answer because a computer can be used in different ways and for different purposes: work, play, multimedia, graphics processing, audio editing, video editing, then the choice should be made considering several factors, including of course the price.
Guide to the notebook
A website that you can help is definitely www.notebookcheck.net, the English version of the site German www.notebookcheck.com: there are dozens of notebooks with the ability to make comparisons between the main models of processors (Intel and AMD) and view the its Benchmark (index / measured value of benefits). Also of note is the section devoted to reviews of notebooks with tests on individual models of the major manufacturers and FAQs and Tips on laptops with guides and information also on the video cards and LCD screens and LED notebook.

How to choose and buy a Tablet PC or a Tablet Computer? Since each person has his needs and his ideas of what is good and what is not, answer is not simple. Here are some guidelines that may help you in your choice.
For one thing, putting in search of a new Tablet PC, you have to clear it, since the sector “tablet” very confused and varied since Apple launched the iPad and millions of incompetent people have started talking about tablet without ever having seen and used.
The main thing that should be known how is that not all tablets are the same, not all allow you to do the same things and, above all, at the moment there are two large groups of devices, “tablet”: there are tablets that represent an evolution of the Personal Computer (i Tablet Personal Computer or Tablet PC) and those that represent an evolution of smartphones (such as the Tablet PC iPad or Android tablet).
What is the difference between Tablet PC and Tablet Computers? The difference between a device equipped with a complete operating system that allows you to do anything and use any PC application and a device with an operating system that, although much more usable with just your fingers, it is thought mainly for displaying content and not to create them.
In short we can say that if you look for something to read, play randomly, surf the internet and watch videos (and nothing else), a Tablet PC is what you need.
If you search for something with which to work, write, create content and operate without restrictions of applications, file formats or codecs, the Tablet PC is the device to which the choice must be addressed.
Including this one, as you can understand what is the best device? You can say many things but the truth is that each person has his needs and his own ideas and what may be good or very good for some may be totally useless for others.
It is therefore essential to understand their needs and ideas, because there is a Tablet PC or Tablet Computer best “ever” but surely there is the best tablet for the needs of a person.
Tablet Computer based on a number of general characteristics (weight, size, connectivity, …) or personal (aesthetic, price, …). Each characteristic is rated on a scale from one to ten and the sum of the individual scores indicates the goodness of the Tablet PC based on the perception of the person who assigned the scores.
What you should do then is simple: you create a list of features that are important or interesting to suit your needs, and reviews and sheets in hand, we evaluate the features in a personal way. It is important to emphasize that the assessment is personal: a person interested aesthetics might consider less suitable for the Lenovo X230t preferring the HP EliteBook tm2-2101sl, a person is not interested in pen and replaceable battery might consider Ergo Tabula more interesting than the Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 – there is a tablet absolute best.
In the picture above you can see an example of Hugometro designed to evaluate Tablet PC, and compared to the original version of Ortega, modified with custom features. Are evaluated, in particular, twelve features:
- Ability to replace a desktop PC (as a connectivity, wired or not)
- Ability to replace a desktop PC (as a power of the device is then evaluated primarily the power of the processor and video card)
- Ability to replace a desktop PC (defined as the presence of a docking station of some kind: the doors of a tablet may be limited, which may be fine in mobility, but a docking station can turn a well-made ultra-light tablet in a multi-workstation)
- Functionality Tablet PC (understood as a feature of pen: specifically, we evaluate the digitizer and the functionality of the stylus)
- Functionality Tablet PC (understood as a feature of touch: the type of digitizer, number of touches available, flush screen with the frame that offers the possibility of using also the first line of pixels, … You can even take into account an assessment of the quality of touch according to the power of the processor; eg experience touch Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 is very limited by the processor Atom)
- Mobility (defined as weight and dimensions)
- Mobility (understood as autonomy. It also assesses the presence of one or more replaceable batteries as for purposes of mobility, a device with three hours of autonomy but a replaceable battery and light is better, for the mobile user, a device with four hours of battery life and built-in battery that, when it ends, forces him to use the power supply)
- Format, size and screen resolution: it is personal assessments, but here it must be said that the screen size is critical.
- Visibility of the screen (defined as the angle of vision, clarity and brightness: if you are not going to use the tablet outdoors, anything goes, if you want to use on the move a glossy screen and a little light could result in serious difficulties’ use)
- Secondary characteristics (defined as all those things like the side scroll wheel or customizing software that are not essential but that improve – or worsen – significantly the user experience)
- Aesthetics (because the eye wants its part, this assessment is totally subjective)
The sum of sub-scores provides a numerical representation of the goodness of the Tablet PC to meet your needs.
