A popular budget category hotel, it is situated on Chakratirtha Road making it close to the Jagannath Temple as well as the beach. It has nice and well equipped rooms that will rates starts from Rs. 1500 and above for a night.

The prime reason behind its popularity is its location i.e. in a really calm locality away from the bustle of the town of Puri. Weary travellers are also attracted to it for its great service and for its hospitable staff that ‘maintain cleanliness religiously’. Even with its multiple advantages, former guests have pointed out that it still needs improvements in clean amenities like mattress and needs to address its pest problems.

Victoria Club Hotel

Victoria Club Hotel is situated near the sea beach at Puri and that has been one of its several key features that customers love. It is a nice and cheap hotel with rooms that cost Rs. 700 per night making it ideal for those travelling on a budget.

According to former customers, the hotel’s cleanliness and service have been its high point. One customer has even attributed cleanliness to be the ‘key factor’ that helped in making the choice. The only hitch in this popular hotel is the deteriorating condition of room maintenance and the apathetic behaviour of housekeeping staff.

Coco Palms Puri

This is one of those ‘luxury hotels near the beach’ that customers are always looking for plus it also has a stretch of private beach which is again a big plus. Needless to say, the service and ambience here are top notch with several guests validating that in their reviews. Even then, the property is not without its share of problems. Guests have focussed on its lack of proper housekeeping and maintenance as one of the hotel’s negative points. Some have even pointed out that it is too pricey and not exactly a great ‘value for money’ hotel in Puri.

Mayfair Heritage

Mayfair Heritage is another one from the popular breed of ‘Luxury hotels near beach’ kind. It is a 4 star property in Puri and its location is Chakratirtha Road. The cost of rooms for a night is Rs. 8402
The hotel’s great location near the beach and its easy access to major landmarks such as the railway station make it a good place to stay. Other than that guests have praised its service standards and its ambience the most. The hotel also offers individual cottages which again are a huge hit among couples.

The only contention that several former customers have is that the property is too ‘pricey’ and the rates are exorbitant plus there are several maintenance issues too that customers have pointed out.

Hotel Holiday Resort

Hotel Holiday Resort is one of the best mid-budget hotels in Puri that will cost you upwards of Rs. 2491 per room. The hotel is situated right opposite the Puri sea beach making it one of the ‘hot properties’ in Puri.

On the flip side, several guests have pointed out its small size of rooms and its service to be ‘below expectations’

Ananya Resorts

Annanya Resorts is situated on VIP road, Puri and is another popular mid-budget hotel with room rates from Rs. 2863. The hotel has been praised by its former customers for its great food and its cleanliness that has impressed many patrons. Guests consider the hotel to be a great ‘value for money’ hotel in Puri. The only complaints that guests have are its slow room service and location that is neither close to the main temple nor to the beach

Buying Iraqi Dinars: 5 Critical Signs You Should Know

At first glance, buying Iraqi dinars online looks easy. Almost too easy. There are a lot of dealers trying to sell them nowadays. So all you have to do is pick one. Right?

Wrong! As with any “hot” merchandise, scams are common and you should know how to spot them, well before you hand out your hard earned money.

Here are 5 critical signs that you should know before buying Iraqi dinars online.

Does the dealers’ website look credible enough?

A couple pages thrown together, with nothing else than a bit or two of text often copied from other web sites are often not a good sign. Take your time. Look at a couple other sellers. Compare them. If something looks fishy, it probably is. Don’t rush and buy Iraqi dinars from the first online dealer you happen to come across.

Are any testimonials, preferably not on the seller’s own web site, from satisfied users that bought Iraqi Dinars from them?

Satisfied customers sometimes leave testimonials to show their appreciation. But beware! It is quite easy to fake pretty much anything on the Internet. And testimonials make no exception. Again, take your time; contact the ones who wrote them if you can. An extra hour you put into this iraqi dinar  research, before you decide where to buy Iraqi dinars, may make the difference between a successful purchase and a failed investment.

Does the seller show his physical location somewhere on the site?

It’ll be quite hard to track an individual or company when all you have is an email address or web site URL. A physical address can help you quickly locate them in time of need.

Is there a phone number you can call and talk to a real person?

Verify the phone number on their contacts page. Call them. Ask them a couple questions to see if they really know their business. For instance you could ask them to tell you the Iraqi dinar security features. Or what denominations do they sell. Ask them anything you can think of that can help you make a decision.

Are they registered with an organization such as the Better Business Bureau?

Odds of getting scammed are pretty thin if the company you’re considering doing business with is a member of BBB or another organization that tracks customer satisfaction and records complaints. But beware! Simply displaying the BBB logo isn’t enough to earn your trust. Take your time and verify they’re actually who they say they are.

Buying Iraqi dinars is considered by some to be a great investment. The safety tips shown here should help you when selecting your dealer.

The Psychology of Successful Dog Bathing

“Can I wash my own dog? It can’t be that hard can it?” These are the words that I hear everyday as I go about my business working at the Pooch Parlor in Northern Idaho. Each time I walk a customer through this process, I find myself wondering why in the world something so simple is so doggone hard to explain. Washing your own dog may seem simple, but – only if you think and speak ‘dog’ – the language of your own dog.

I run a shop for full service and self-service dog grooming and bathing, and I LOVE it! There are dogs, and owners, of every size, every breed, and every temperament that come in to use the self-service doggie wash. Most owners are excited, some are scared, and some are cocky, but no matter who they are, or what they do for a living, there is nothing quite as intimidating for them as washing their own dog in public! The thought of doing this can give even the most confident person, performance anxiety, and for good reason! It is a true test of trust and tolerance and friendship for the person and dog companion. And, on a very basic level, it is an honest mirror for the owner, and how he or she deals with life, and with conflict. The likelihood of a successful experience for both is completely dependent upon the psychological relationship that exists between them, and, to a large extent, the ability of both to comprehend the body language of the other. You may be surprised to know that I have found that dogs are supremely better at reading their humans than their humans are of reading them. It is this relationship between human and canine, that shows itself without modesty during bathtime, and, keeps me coming to work day after day with a smile on my face.

My clients have been giving their dogs baths in my shops for 10+ years now, and, each year is more entertaining than the last when it comes to watching regular people washing their own regular dogs. The average person that comes through our doors is highly successful, which usually means – intelligent – and, because like attracts like, so is their dog. And, so why oh why, they ask me, should this simple task of cleaning their dog be so difficult? I ask them time and again, “Well, how well do you speak dog?” Invariably, their reply is a blank stare. So, this is the time to ask yourself, “How well do YOU speak dog?”

There is a lot to say about the theories of why dogs and humans behave the way they do, but I’m going to get back to the practical things to look for while bathing your own dog. The bottom line to remember is that your dog’s energy and personality traits are a mirror to your own. Take this into consideration when attempting to get him into the tub and have him be happy about it.

1. Deciding when to bathe your dog. Timing and Personality traits: Timing is important. Look at your own needs regarding timing to know how your dog will react. Are you the kind of person that is up for anything anytime? Or do you need to accomplish your day in a scheduled, systematic way? How do you do with new experiences? Do you find them refreshing and fun, or do you feel fearful until comfortable with a new activity? Your dog is going to deal with the bathtime experience in the same way you deal with life experiences. Remember that your dog is going to reflect your own personality traits – not necessarily the traits you show the world, but the traits that are truly inside you.

a. Fun-loving, extroverted, and social humans. If you enjoy regular physical activity, then so will your dog. For this type of person and dog, I suggest you take your dog out for a bout of exercise before the bath. In the city where I work, we are fortunate to have a designated beach on the lake just for dogs and their humans – dogbeach. There is a long path to run or walk on, and there is a large beach area to swim and play in. This is the perfect scenario for pre-bath timing. The dog can choose to get muddy, run, socialize, or just enjoy being outside. In any case, the dog is able to spend big reserves of energy outside in a fun way, just like letting human children play before naptime. If you love exercise, do something like this with your dog before taking him into your own tub or a professional facility for a dog bath. A common fault of the social dog and owner: Just because you are friendly, out-going person does not mean everyone wants to accept your friendly, and out-going gestures. It’s hard to fathom, I know, but it is true. If you have a very social dog (if you are a social person), it is easy to forget that many dogs (like their owners) are not social and do not appreciate the social requirements (like butt-sniffing) of others. Please remember to doghint  respect their space when in public or otherwise. Keep your dog restrained and under control, even if your dog has the friendliest intentions.

b. Non-social, active, or inactive humans. If your personality is not conducive to social interaction, then I still suggest that you walk your dog or do something that is comfortable within your life that involves light exercise before bathing your dog. Taking a walk with your dog does wonders to alleviate excess tension or stress for both human and dog. By getting rid of stressful energies during a walk, it does not present itself during bathtime. Getting exercise is especially important for those humans,( I mean dogs), that are highly nervous. I recommend giving your dog Valerian root (liquid form) or Rescue Remedy (liquid or spray) orally 30 minutes before the bath. Both of these products are natural remedies to calming down jittery nerves- and it works great for humans too. If timing is important in your life, take your dog to a self-service bathing facility when the least amount of people are there, usually early or late in the day. A common fault of the non-social dog and owner: they communicate poorly within their own species and with other species. Many people that tend towards isolation, often do this because they never figured out how to communicate effectively in human society. Their dogs typically have the same problem. I have seen it happen many times that owners of aggressive dogs unwittingly encourage their dog’s unwanted behavior, when they think they are doing the opposite. They do this by projecting their worrying thoughts about the ‘what-ifs’ of a social situation. Dogs of this type of owner act out their dog interpretations of their human owners signals. The dogs often pick up the ‘what-if’ fears of the human as the request of their human, actually creating the ‘what-if’ behavior to occur. Without human intervention and boundary setting by the owner (requiring advanced communication skills), it is quite common for this type of dog to exhibit increasingly aggressive behavior. Most owners are dismayed by their dog’s aggressive behavior, but they simply lack the skills required to communicate what behavior they will and won’t allow from their dog. I recommend that if you have a dog that is displaying increasingly aggressive behaviors to consult a professional dog behaviorist or trainer. Just a few simple tricks will convey an accurate message to a dog that is most likely misunderstanding your expectations.

How Coaches, Content Creators, And Info Marketers Can Spin “Digital Driftwood” Into Cold, Wet Cash

If you are a content creator who wants to squeeze out more sales and money from content you’ve already created, then this article will show you how.

Here is a true story to illustrate what to do:

Not long ago, I was visiting my mom who lives in a small village by the ocean, and I decided to whip my phone out and create a teaching video out of it for a professionally-produced video series. Usually, I would just immediately create and put such content on my mobile app and share it as value to get immediate engagement and possibly even see some immediate cash flow, depending on what the content is selling. But this was for something entirely different and one of those rare cases where I wanted studio-like production value.

Anyway, the topic was about what I call:

“Digital driftwood”

It was inspired by some driftwood I saw on the beach.

And what that means is, almost everyone I know or know of who has any kind of content creation, any kind of coaching, or any kind of info marketing or other kind of solo entrepreneur thing going has all kinds of content you’ve had forever and aren’t aware of it. And one reason why a mobile app can be so valuable to those who use one is, it lets you put all that content floating around on your phone, on your hard drive, on your YouTube channels, etc right onto an app you control, on a platform that is yours, and do it via a simple & easy-to-use interface your audience and clients and customers can instantly experience and enjoy.

Everyone has all of this digital Driftwood in their business.

I would bet the biggest alligator in Florida you do, too.

You’re just not putting it to use in a mobile app which is designed to help you profit from.

Dan Kennedy talks about his idea of “unused capacity” – assets, time, resources, talents, space, media, friends, contacts, networks, etc you could be using, that you already possess, but aren’t, but if you did you could potentially add another “0” to your current business income.

Well guess what?

Digital driftwood is like hundreds of big, fat LOGS of unused capacity floating down a river you could be gathering, and using, selling, and building your business with.

If you want to start profiting and using yours, here is what I suggest doing:

1. Build a mobile app or find an affordable zΩservice that lets you utilize mobile app technology – as statistics are clear that 70% of people now consume content on a mobile phone, and 90% of that content is consumed in a mobile app specifically (not a browser on the phone).

2. Start loading all your digital “driftwood” content onto it.

3. Start sharing, selling, or using it to engage.

And that’s all there is to it.

Doing that one thing alone – with content you already have “floating” around – can not only potentially make you quick sales, but possibly even be something you build an entire coaching, info marketing, or content creation business around.

To get your own professionally created & prestigiously branded $100,000+ quality mobile app for profiting from your own digital driftwood… and get it for less than the cost of your monthly cell cable bill… go here for a free test drive

How Much Does a Franchise Cost?

Are you someone who is considering purchasing a franchise? While a lot of people consider owning a franchise, not many take the time to do a proper calculation of a franchise cost. It turns out that there are several factors that affect the final cost of the franchise which means that each company will be different. However, no matter which restaurant you’re interested in, there are a few common costs that are the same in each situation. This includes the franchise fee, all build-out costs, contractor fees, professional fees, signage, and your inventory. It also requires that you have enough working capital to open and stay in business until the business can actually support itself. Let’s take a moment to further discuss the common costs that come along with a franchise opportunity.

1. Franchise Fee

Every company will require that you pay the initial franchise fees. These fees cover the cost of training, support as well as site selection. The benefits (or items) that are included in these fees are different from one company to the next. In certain instances, these fees are simply an upfront licensing fee which gives the owner the right to use the company’s name. This is why it’s a good idea to take the time to do research into what you will be getting in return when paying your franchise fee.

This fee can range from $20,000 to $50,000. For example, McDonald’s franchise fee is on the higher end at $45,000. However, there are some cases in which your fee may be less than $20,000. Those with lower franchise fees are typically mobile or even home-based.

2. Legal and Accounting Fees

If you are interested in purchasing a franchise then you should consult with a professional franchise attorney. He or she will be able to help you review the Franchise Disclosure Document, better known as the FDD. They can also help you to better understand the franchise agreement. While there are no set fees, in this case, you should expect to pay anywhere from $1,500 to $5,000 to enlist the help of a franchise attorney. The amount you pay also comes down to how much time you spend with your attorney.

Just remember to keep a thorough and clear record from the very beginning. You may even consider hiring a professional accountant to keep an account specifically for your meetings. Not only can the accountant ensure that you don’t go over budget with your legal fees, but they can also make sure that you have enough working capital.

3. Working Capital

The cash that you have available from day to day is referred to as working capital. This amount needs to be able to cover a specific length of time. This time period can range from two to three years-whenever your business starts to pick up. McDonald’s requires a working capital of $750,000.

The franchisor will usually provide estimates of the amount that you need, however, it’s a good idea to do your own research if you want to make sure that your calculations are based on your market rather than system averages.

4. Build-Out Costs

Build-out cost is another factor that can vary from one franchise to the next. Once you have decided on a location which the company approves, you will be able to determine the build-out costs. This includes furniture, equipment, signage, and fixtures. It may also include the professional fees for architectural drawings, contractor fees, security, insurance, and landscaping. There is one exception: home-based franchise; these franchises have no build-out costs.

5. Supplies

You can’t run your franchise without the proper supplies. This may be something as simple as plastic utensils to your everyday office supplies. Franchisors will usually provide a list of what is needed. This amount can vary, but an owner should expect to pay well over $100,000 in most cases.

6. Inventory

If you are buying a retail franchise, or any other franchise where you are selling a specific product, you must stock up on inventory. Once again, every franchise is different and has different requirements. You may be required to buy between $20,000 and $150,000 worth of inventory.

7. Expenses While Training

Franchisors provide training for owners and at least one employee. In fact, completing training is usually a requirement. Although the training is usually covered by your franchise fee, the owner will be responsible for travel and living expenses. This amount can also vary based on location and the needs of the individuals.

As you can see, owning a franchise is not a straight-forward endeavor. If you want to be successful with your purchase, then you need to understand all of the different factors that come into play financially. In cases of franchises like Mcdonald’s, your total costs will amount to more than $900,000. However, with diligent research and realistic expectations, you should be able to secure a place with your chain of choice.

Collapsed Glass in Thermopane Windows

Surgery may correct distance vision, but it creates the need for reading glasses. Reading glasses look like normal glasses, but they actually give you good distance vision and good reading vision. For detail activities such as prolonged reading, have a pair of reading glasses made that provide balanced near vision. Almost a third of the American population needs reading glasses, but engineers designing web sites are typically under 40 with perfect vision. This often leaves them with perfect reading vision, without glasses, in old age, despite having lost accommodation through presbyopia. People who do not need glasses for distance vision may only need half glasses or reading glasses. In the past, traditional eye exams for near vision have resulted in glasses suited only for reading printed material, not for viewing computer screens. People with natural 20/20 distance vision will likely need reading glasses when presbyopia develops. Even if you achieve excellent vision through surgery, reading glasses are usually necessary beyond 45 years of age. If you have Lasik to correct your distance vision, you’ll still need reading glasses around age 45. Of course, one can use two different pairs of glasses, each with single vision lenses – one pair just for reading, and another for looking into the distance.

Distance

This is what reading glasses are about; they let you focus in on fine detail at a close distance. Baby boomers who have LASIK may end up trading in their old distance glasses for reading glasses. For those who need distance of midfield glasses, bifocals can often be the answer to providing for both distance and reading needs. Other customers may wish to consider the option of owning two pairs of glasses; one pair for distance and another for reading. And with half-eye reading glasses, you can look down through the lenses for reading and over the lenses to see in the distance. They will turn your standard distance glasses into reading glasses or your reading glasses into super magnifying lenses.

Wearing Your Glasses

Contacts have given me back some youth, but when I have them in I have to wear reading glasses. Speaking of glasses, I wear reading glasses when using a computer. I would recommend this group to anyone looking for unique and/or quality reading glasses – Roseanne-Arizona. And despite Dorothy Parker’s famous quip, women do look attractive who wear eyeglasses for reading. This means to wear the compact reading glasses down a bit on your nose. If you already wear regular glasses or reading glasses, you may be tempted to dismiss the need for computer glasses. Even non eyeglasses wearers can wear them over their sunglasses when working or reading outside. You wouldn’t wear reading glasses for driving, or at least I hope you wouldn’t. I think it was because I kept reading books with dimmed lights that made me started to wear glasses. There is no need to wear reading glasses underneath your safety glasses ever again.

Computer

These glasses give these people the ability to have proper eye protection, and allow easy reading of plans, instructions and computer screens. Some may need to use reading glasses for close work such as reading, using a computer, or sewing. For activities like reading or working on a computer, patients who’ve had cataracts removed commonly require reading glasses. Caution should be used concerning buying ready-made magnifying or reading glasses off the rack in stores to use as computer glasses.

Case

By using a reading glasses case you will prevent accidents that could ruin them. Mini reading glasses almost always come with a case designed specifically for this type of reading glasses. Plastic or metal reading glasses can be used with either a hard or soft case. Most likely a soft case will come with plastic reading glasses. The soft fabric protects the lens while the soft case is basically just storage for the reading glasses. Often such readers come with a hard case that is designed to store a specific style of reading glasses.

Lens

That is when you start reaching for reading glasses, because you need the extra power that your own lens can’t provide anymore. Off-the-rack reading glasses have the same lens power in each lens. Flip-up reading glasses – these are like the flip-up sunglasses, except they provide a magnifying lens. Even contact lens users often use reading glasses.

Prescription

If you’re experiencing those problems, visit your eye doctor for a reading glasses prescription. While pinholes are not as cheap as off-the-rack reading glasses, they are considerabley cheaper than individual prescription glasses. Purchasing reading glasses made up to your prescription is the perfect way to solve this problem. If they say you need a prescription, tell them that reading glasses can be bought in drugstores without a prescription. Over-the-counter reading glasses are inexpensive eyeglasses that can be purchased in variety, drug, and discount stores without a prescription.

Write a good copy before your links. Ask your readers to click the link. It has been proven that making a direct suggestion to click the link can generate traffic rather than just placing your link there passively.

You should make an offer if you want readers to visit your site. Tease them a little with suggestions of benefits and more free articles if they click on that blue link. There is no great come on for web users than free stuff. Use it to the maximum. Aside from free articles you can also offer free subscriptions to your e-zines.
