The Risk Of Online Shopping

norton72890

Although there are many who enjoy online shopping, there are others who have fears about online shopping and do not enjoy this type of shopping. For these shoppers there too many concerns which prevent the shopper from feeling completely comfortable shopping online. This article will address these concerns and offer information about how shoppers can help to avoid these online shopping dangers and feel more comfortable about the process of shopping online.

Misuse/Theft On Credit Card Or Personal Details
Identity theft is a very real concern because unscrupulous individuals who acquire sensitive information about an online shopper can do a great deal of damage to the individual’s financial situation and credit score. While identity theft is a very valid concern, online shoppers are not completely vulnerable to identity theft in most cases. However, the online shopper should know how to determine whether or not the information they provide online is secure or not. This is important because while the risk of identity theft associated with online shopping through a secure website is relatively small, this risk is significantly larger when the website is not secure. For this reason, online shoppers should carefully examine the web address for any website in which they submit sensitive information. Fraud resulting from making payments over unsecured web pages and using an unsecured Wi-Fi connection. Websites which start with “https://” as opposed to “http://” indicate the information is being submitted through a secure server. Most reputable online retailers will provide a secure website for shoppers but some smaller online retailers may not offer this degree of security.

Paying For Goods That Never Arrive
This can happen quite frequently, but fortunately as consumers we have considerable protection from this when using reputable vendors. Sites such as Amazon and eBay offer ways to compensate consumers who could be ripped off by fraudulent third party sellers. Again we recommend you carefully check customer reviews and rating before making your purchase.

Cyberspace companies
Companies on the Internet may appear to be bigger or more credible than they really are. This means you risk dealing with bogus companies.Bogus online companise are those fake websites and email offers for goods and services that do not exist.

Dealing with Returns
Another problem which faces many online retailers is the potential for problems which result from the need to return items purchased online. In most cases the return process with online retailers is quite simple and is not more difficult than returning items to a regular store. In fact online retailers who have a traditional store often allow online shoppers to make returns to these locations instead of shipping the item back to the online retailer. However, returns are not always this easy. In some cases the shopper will be financially responsible for the cost of shipping the item back to the online retailer. This can be costly if the item is oversized and could require pricy insurance if the item is expensive. Online shoppers who have concerns about the return policy for an online retailer should carefully review these policies and inquire if they have any questions about the process before making a purchase.

Misleading Product Descriptions
Receiving goods or services which do not match the advertiser’s description. This may include product descriptions which are intentionally or unintentionally ambiguous. The concern in this situation is that the shopper will purchase the wrong item or an item which is not as described by the online retailer and the buyer will have difficulty returning the item if necessary.

Counterfeit, Damaged or Stolen Goods
This is detrimental to the consumer in many ways, the most obvious of which is being landed with a substandard product. However, it is also possible for the customer to put their own health at risk by purchasing an item which is simply dangerous.Counterfeit drugs can cause damage either by containing harmful ingredients or by simply not containing any active ingredients at all, leading individuals to believe they are being treated when they aren’t.

Flying A Radio Controlled Airplane

A radio-controlled airplane, often called RC aircraft or RC plane, is a small flying machine that is controlled remotely by an operator on the ground using a hand-held radio transmitter. Radio-controlled airplanes can rack up quite a bill when you consider all of the different things you have to buy in order to enjoy the hobby. You have to buy the plane model itself, as well as all the radio and motor equipment to keep it in the air. Then you have to buy gasoline, or pay for electricity to charge the battery. All in all it can be a very expensive venture. After you spend all of this money, nothing is worse than seeing your investment crash to the ground and erupt into a huge fireball (well, maybe not the fireball part; however, you can expect all of your components to be smashed beyond any working state). So when you fly your plane for the first time, you have to use extreme caution in making sure that you don’t ruin your plane and consequently waste your money.

The most important part is to choose the day and the place carefully. On the ideal day, there are perfectly clear skies, with little to no wind. Hopefully it is also warm, but if it isn’t that won’t jeopardize your mission (unless you are shivering so much that you can’t effectively control the plane). You should go to a place that offers some sort of good take-off point. Sidewalks and roads are perfect for this. You should also try to look for an area that is low on houses, trees, and preferably doesn’t have many people around.

First you need to check all of your equipment. Even if you are a pro at handling radio controlled planes, nothing can save you from faulty equipment. Check and double-check everything before you send the plane up. Be sure to pay special attention to the landing gear. Make sure it is secure, and that it will be able to withstand the force of impact when the plane touches the ground after you are done flying. Also check all of the connections between the motor and the fuel supply or batteries. Test all of the radio equipment to make sure that every motion is interpreted by the plane. Hold it in your hand as you or a friend tries all of the levers and knobs.

Set your plane on some sort of surface that will act as a good runway. If you’re in a park with sidewalks, find a large strip of sidewalk that will give your plane plenty of room to roll, gather speed, and take off. Just make sure there are no people walking in the way. Get up to speed, and if everything goes right you should lift smoothly in the air. Hopefully you will have read through the manual that came with your plane. Every radio controller is slightly different, so I can’t give you detailed instructions on that aspect of the flight. You will have to read your manual to find out how to do it well.

After the flight you need to do yet another inspection of the equipment. If it was in good shape at the beginning of the flight and the flight went by without a hitch, it isn’t likely to have some sort of new problem that has suddenly shown up. However, you should always investigate anyways, and save yourself some grief in the future. If you notice something wrong, you can take the plane directly home and take care of it, rather than wait until you notice it the next time you come out to fly.

Follow all of these procedures, along with any local laws or regulations that may affect your flying session. Flying is a fun hobby, and if you are able to follow all of the guidelines that I have provided, as well as any other factors that may affect you personally, then you will find it to be a very enjoyable and worthy pastime.

Safety Tips For Online Shopping

Here’s a checklist of what you can do to minimise the risk becoming a victim of Internet fraud.

Use Trusted Websites/Vendors – There are many simple ways to improve your safety when buying online. By shopping from trusted vendors you can be sure to stay safe.

Don’t Shop Publicly – Do not do any transaction when using an unsecured Wi-Fi connection. These blackhat hackers can easily hack your personal information through this unsecured Wi-Fi connection.

Make Sure your Device Is Protected – To ensure that your security program’s protection stays updated, keep its virus and malware signatures up-to-date. Ensure you have effective and updated antivirus/antispyware software and firewall running before you go online.

Choose Credit Over Debit Cards – Credit cards can be the safer choice for online shopping. Remember that paying by credit card offers greater protection than with other methods in terms of fraud, guarantees and non-delivery. If someone manages to intercept your financial information online, they can do less damage and you have more recourse than if you’d used a debit card. This is for two reasons:

  • Credit cards have spending limits, while debit cards—which are directly linked to your bank account—do not.
  • You can dispute fraudulent charges made to a credit card without being out-of-pocket the amount in dispute, but money withdrawn directly from your checking account by a debit card is much more difficult to recover.

Payment Via Secure Payment Site – When making a payment to an individual, never transfer the money directly into their bank account but use a secure payment site such as PayPal or Google Checkout, where money is transferred between two electronic accounts.

Website Security – Make sure the order checkout area is encrypted. Before you purchase anything from a website, verify that the vendor has encrypted its payment form. There should be a padlock icon in the browser window frame, which appears when you attempt to log in or register. The website address should begin with ‘https://’ instead of “http:”. The ‘s’ stands for ‘secure’.norton3002501

Double Check – Double check! Double check! Double check! Double check all details of your purchase before confirming payment.

Keep Copies Of All Correspondence – When you place an order online, most companies will send you an e-mail confirming the order has been received.Print or save the confirmation and keep it until you receive your product.

With risks that differ from traditional stores, online shopping requires extra precautions. To protect yourself and your information, follow these steps before you key in your credit card information and proceed.

Radio Controlled Plane (RC Plane) For Beginner

DJI Tenth Anniversary Promotion
When you are going to buy your first RC Plane, you should go for something that will be fairly cheap to purchase, and will give you a chance to learn how to fly remote controlled planes before you move onto more advanced planes. If you buy the first plane that you see, you could end up having a very bad experience for your first time, and be completely turned away from the hobby. This is why it is very important to know that there are many different characteristics that you can look for.

First you need to assess your own building skills. You can buy airplane kits that require you to build the entire thing from scraps of wood, or you can buy kits that just require you to snap a few parts together. If you want to make a huge, prolonged project out of your radio controlled plane, then you can buy one that requires full assembly. However, you should always be sure that your building skills are up for it. If you don’t want to spend the time required to do this, or if you don’t have the prowess to build it, then you can buy a plane that does not require any assembly at all.

Next you will want to look for something that has stability for people without are flying for the first time. It may not seem like it, but to fly a radio controlled plane you need at least some skill. But, if you search for the right item you can find something that is more geared towards beginners. Slow flying speed is always a benefit, just as driving slow is a good way to learn how to control a car for the first time. You will want a light plane with larger wings that can catch the wind better. This will make takeoff easier. You will also want to look for planes that have flat bottoms, and wings mounted high on the body. If you get a plane that has all of these features, your maiden flight will be as smooth as possible.

Next you need to consider the model of the airplane you are going to buy. You can get model replicas of almost any type of plane, from the first Wright Brothers’ plane to modern military jets. If you are buying a model plane, you are probably already interested in planes to begin with. Think of what plane you are most intrigued by when you look through plane books, and see if you can find a kit that is modeled after that plane. This will give you a personal interest in the model that you are getting. When you fly it for the first time, it will be almost like being in the cockpit of the actual plane.

After you have decided on these issues when picking your plane, the rest is just up to personal preference. Hope these can help you to get your first radio controlled plane that suits you. But if you pay close attention to these and pick your plane carefully, you will find that radio controlled flying is a great way to spend your time. It is a very rewarding hobby, and it can last you a lifetime if you choose planes that are compliant with your level of skill. After all, you don’t want to go out on your first flight and then crash your plane directly into the ground or a tree.

Superfoods

Superfoods are a special category of foods found in nature.Though there is no legal or medical definition, superfoods are nutrient powerhouses that pack large doses of antioxidants, polyphenols, vitamins, and minerals, nutrients that we need but cannot make ourselves. Eating them may reduce the risk of chronic disease, and prolong life, and people who eat more of them are healthier and thinner than those who don’t.

The Benefits of Superfoods

  • Improving your nutrition: All the superfoods are rich in the nutrients your body needs, and they’re very low in bad fats and processed sugars that can ruin a diet.
  • Strengthening your immune system: The nutrients and phytochemicals in many superfoods keep your immune system strong so you’re less likely to catch colds and the flu.
  • Fighting free radicals: Superfoods are rich in antioxidants, which destroy the free radicals that can damage the cells in your body. This protection improves your health, reduces your risk of disease, and helps you age gracefully.
  • Reducing the risk of cancer: The nutrients, fiber, good fats, and phytochemicals found in superfoods reduce your risk of several types of cancer.
  • Keeping your heart healthy: Those same nutrients, fiber, good fats, and phytochemicals also protect your heart by reducing inflammation and keeping blood vessels healthy.
  • Feeling better: Superfoods help you feel more energetic.
  • Boosting metabolism and watching your weight: Many of the superfoods are high in fiber and low in calories, so you can load up your plate without adding many extra calories. Some of the superfoods that are a little higher in calories are rich in protein, fiber, and good fats that keep hunger at bay, and some superfoods actually increase the number of calories you burn.
  • Maintaining your youthful complexion: The antioxidants in superfoods reduce damage to your skin, and many foods are rich in vitamin C that keeps connective tissue strong. The combination means beautiful, healthy skin.
    Flooding you with flavor: Who says healthy has to be dull and flavorless? Superfoods are delicious and can be used in all kinds of recipes.

By choosing foods packed with nutrition, you’ll get the most out of your munching and get serious health rewards.

 

The Top Superfoods


For you to have a healthier life, it’s time to recreate your diet plan. Here are some important superfoods for you to add into your healthy diet plan.

Whole Grains – Switching to whole grains is one of the easiest ways to significantly improve your health.Whole grains help stabilize blood sugar and insulin and may protect against heart disease. Whole wheat flour, brown rice, barley and oatmeal are all whole grain foods. Products labeled with the words “multi-grain,”“stone-ground,” “100% wheat,” “seven-grain,” “pumpernickel,” “organic,” or “bran” may actually contain little or no whole grain. Experiment with ancient grains such as amaranth, spelt, kamut, and quinoa. These have more protein and fibre than wheat. Quinoa is glutenfree, which is a good news for those who suffering on wheat allergies.

Avocado – Though avocados contain more fat than almost any other fruit, it’s virtually all monounsaturated fat whose many benefits include raising good cholesterol, lowering bad cholesterol and preventing heart disease. They’re loaded with fiber and are a good source of lutein, an antioxidant linked to eye and skin health.

Kiwi – Kiwi is an antioxidant all-star. It offers an unusual array of health-promoting substances. One very important thing it does is it promotes heart health by helping to lower triglycerides levels and reducing platelet hyperactivity.

Green Tea – Green tea is rich in epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) — a powerful antioxidant that not only inhibits the growth of cancer cells but improves the flexibility of veins and arteries so they are less vulnerable to clogging. Green tea may also increase mental alertness, aid in weight loss, reduce LDL cholesterol, and protect the skin from sun damage.

Berries – Raspberries, blackberries, strawberries and blueberries make their “all-star team of superberries.” Each should be added equally to a diet to reap their individual benefits: strawberries for potassium, raspberries for vitamin C, blueberries for fiber and blackberries for vitamin E and more. These berries are full of phytonutrients that neutralize free radicals (agents that cause aging and cell damage). The antioxidants in these berries may also protect against cancer and reduce the effects of age-related conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.

Cabbage – Brassica vegetables (including broccoli, bok choy) contain compounds called indoles, which have been shown to reduce the risk of cancer dramatically. Eating cabbage more than once a week cut men’s colon cancer odds by 66 percent. Cabbage also stimulates the immune system, kills bacteria and viruses, and is a good blood purifier. If you go for the red variety, you’ll also get a healthy dose of anthocyanins (the same pigment molecules that make blueberries blue), another powerful antioxidant with an anticancer punch.

Beans – Such as pinto beans, black beans and lentils are another series of foods to lower cholesterol, combat heart disease, stabilize blood sugar, reduce obesity, relieve constipation and lessen the risk of cancer.Black beans are full of heart-healthy fiber, antioxidants, and energy-boosting iron.

Red Wine – A small amount of any kind of alcohol each day does your heart good by increasing HDL cholesterol and reducing the risk of blood clots. Resist a refill, however: More than one drink daily has been linked to high blood pressure. Red wine also contains powerful antioxidants, resveratrol and saponins, which may provide additional cardiovascular benefits. Recent research indicates that red wine can also help prevent Alzheimer’s disease.

Salmon – Salmon contains omega-3 fatty acids, which the body cannot produce by itself. These fatty acids reduce inflammation, improve circulation, increase the ratio of good to bad cholesterol, and may slash cancer risk. Salmon is a rich source of selenium, which helps prevent cell damage, and several B vitamins.

Dark Chocolate – Chocolate is good for us, but only if it contains at least 65 percent cacao. Dark chocolate contains about eight times the antioxidants found in strawberries. Compounds in dark chocolate help regulate blood pressure, LDL cholesterol and hormone levels, and chocolate also provides endorphins and serotonin — which are mood elevators.

Paintball Game For Team Building

Paintball game has been rapidly gaining popularity for decades. The game’s focus on teamwork and strategy combined with pure, adrenaline-pumping fun makes for an unforgettable experience. To succeed you need a well-devised strategy, careful planning and effective teamwork.

Tactics
Paintball is a tactical game. You have to know your team’s strengths and weaknesses. As a rule, it is best to use your team’s strength to win rather than trying to cover up your weaknesses. What really matters now is how to prevent the other team from exploiting your weakness and making it a turning point in your battle.

Role play
Paintball also requires your team to have a battle plan. Who will be the designated shooter (sniper)? Who will charge and start all the action for your team? These are just two of the different positions and strategies that your team will have to determine so that your team can win.

Sensibility and Creativity
Paintball is designed to bring out the creative side in people. You have to make sure that your battle plan allows for a contingency plan for when mistakes happen. You are never really sure how your opponent will react when you stage a certain part of your plan. The sign of a great “General” is knowing the different plans that your opponent will make to counteract every thing you do. A general should not be rattled when every plan he has made has failed. He should be able to devise new plan in the middle of the fight.

Flexibility
Paintball also requires your team to be flexible. Just because you are not a designated hitter does not mean that you cannot do that to your opponents. Your team should understand each others job and make sure that when one of your teammates falls, there are others who can carry on the job he was doing.

Good Interaction
Paintball requires good communication between teammates. You should have your own signs and you should learn to bond with your teammates so that you will know what he wants by just a look of the eye or nod of the head.
10% Off. Use Coupon Code SAS2014Paintball is also not just about winning as a team, it is also about experiencing losing as a team and experiencing all of the hardships of playing and surviving as a team. Paintball relieves stress while promoting teamwork in a fun and interactive atmosphere. Team spirit and friendships build as the day progresses.

Online Shopping For Appliances

Just a few clicks, you can find a great bargain at online retailers of appliances.The majority of these popular retailers offered online which makes shopping for these appliances even more convenient for the consumer. From small appliances like toasters to large appliances like refrigerators shoppers can find a variety of options available to them. This article will discuss some aspects of shopping for appliances online including tips for comparison shopping for appliances online and special considerations when shopping for appliances online.

Comparison Shopping for Appliances Online
Consumers can use websites provided by online retailers for comparison shopping purposes even if they intend to make their purchase from a traditional store. Traditional stores which also have an online store typically offer the same products in their online store which are available in the traditional store. As a result consumers can visit the online retailers for several different stores to browse the inventory available. The alternative to this method of comparison shopping would be for the consumer to visit all of the local stores offering appliances and compile the information. The information obtained will likely be exactly the same but the consumer will spend considerably more time comparison shopping at traditional stores than they would online. This is especially true if the stores are spread out and the consumer has to travel a considerable distance to compile the information necessary for comparison shopping.

Special Considerations when Shopping for Appliances Online
There are some special considerations for consumers who wish to shop for appliances online. Typically one of the major advantages of online shopping is the ability to shop at retailers located around the world.

Another factor to carefully consider when purchasing appliances online is the measurements of the appliance. Most online retailers provide all of the necessary measurements in the product description. This will help to ensure the appliance fits properly. It will also help to prevent the consumer from having to return the appliance. This can be a costly mistake because there will likely be a fee involved with either having the appliance picked up or shipping the appliance back to the online retailers.

Consumers who opt to purchase an appliance online may have a number of choices available to them including having the product delivered or picking up the product from a store.
