Tell Me What You Really Think

My accuser stated, “… it is the high IQ white males who claim to be Christian who nonetheless do nothing to alter the mind of mass white man.” I assume by this he means that the high IQ white males are doing nothing to convince the people who believe that God is dead to believe that He is in fact alive and well. I do not know if he thinks of me as a high IQ white male. I am a white male. He has in the past described me as high IQ but I am not sure if he did that to butter my bread and get me to agree with him. I also do not know what he expects me to do. Does he want me to preach on the streets? Does he want me to go door to door? Does he want me to start arguments on the internet as he does? I simply do not know.

 

I am also not sure why he is feeling so out of sorts. Certainly if God is all powerful He can work to change the hearts of man. For example, in the Book of Genesis God created a world flood which undoubtedly cause extensive water damage Utah all over the place. I am not sure why my accuser thinks that I am not pulling my weight in the war for souls or whatever he wants to call it. I also do not think picking fights with people on the internet is the best way to achieve the outcome he professes to want to achieve.

 

It is obvious to me that what he professes to want to achieve and what he actually wants to achieve are two vastly different things. I do not think he really wants to appease God so as to prevent Him from inflicting more water damage Utah upon the face of the Earth. What I really think he wants to do is to make another anonymous person on the internet feel ashamed of himself just like he does.

Organize Your Speech

Organize Your Speech

The second speech given by a new member of a Toastmasters club is called Project 2 “Organize Your Speech.” The objectives of this speech are as follows. First, the Toastmaster must create an outline of their speech that is easy for listeners to follow and understand. For example, if the speaker is talking about taking the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery because they are a candidate for enlistment in the United States Armed Services, they may want to discuss first how they prepared for the ASVAB by taking multiple versions of an ASVAB practice test and then how they performed on the actual test. The speech is only five to seven minutes in length so the outline need not be long or elaborate.

 

The second objective is to make the message of the speech clear. This message should include supporting material which contributes directly to the effective delivery of the speech. For example, the message of the speech might be that taking multiple versions of the ASVAB practice test is the best way to prepare for taking the actual ASVAB test itself.

 

The third objective is for the speaker to use transitions in the speech that appropriately move the speech from one topic to the next. In other words, the speaker should try to avoid abruptly switching from one topic to another because this is often confusing for the audience and detracts from the overall effectiveness of the speech.

 

The final objective is to create a strong opening and conclusion. These two elements book end the speech and contribute to its effectiveness. The opening tells the audience what the speech is about and effectively gives them a roadmap to follow. The closing sums up the speech and hammers home the main points the speaker wants the audience to remember after the speech is over.

The Envy of the World

The Envy of the World

The modern United States Armed Services are the envy of the world. Its soldiers are arguably the best trained, best funded and best equipped soldiers on earth and perhaps in the history of the world. In addition the United States Armed Services is steeped in tradition and rich in history. Accordingly, any candidate for enlistment in the United States Armed Services should feel proud to be considered a candidate for such and august institution. This is true regardless of the branch of the United States Armed Services the candidate for enlistment seeks to join be it the United States Army, the United States Navy, the United States Marines Corps, the United States National Guard or the United States Coast Guards.

 

Before a candidate for admission in the United States Armed Services is accepted, however, he or she must sit for the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery or ASVAB. The ASVAB is an exam that tests the candidate’s knowledge in ten distinct subject areas including science, math and English among others. The candidate’s performance on the exam will determine both their fitness for entrance into the United States Armed Services as well as which job within the United States Armed Services they are probably best suited to perform. Accordingly it is important for the candidate to properly prepare for the test prior to taking it. Many candidates prepare for the ASVAB by taking multiple versions of the ASVAB practice test.

 

By taking multiple versions of the ASVAB practice test the candidate for admission into the United States Armed Services will benefit in two primary ways. First, the candidate will become familiar with the ASVAB test format. Second, by taking the ASVAB practice test, the candidate will come to know the subject areas in which his or her knowledge base is lacking and therefore know what subject areas will require further study.

A Complete Set

A Complete Set

My bedroom contains a king sized bed with the most uncomfortable mattress in the world. When I bought it I thought that I would like a mattress that was more on the firm side of the hardness spectrum. But now I am waking up with a sore back and I think that it is the fault of the mattress. The next mattress I purchase will be softer. I am not sure when that will be as mattresses are expensive and times are tough.

 

Even though times are tough my bedroom was recently cleaned by a maid service Salt Lake City. The maid does not make my bed or wash my sheets. Typically she mainly focuses on cleaning and vacuuming the floors and wiping down surfaces. I think the price I pay for her services is well worth it because I feel much more relaxed after her work is done.

 

The bedroom also contains other furniture. These other pieces of furniture include two dressers, two night stands, a desk and a cedar chest. Inside the cedar chest is a bunch of sheets and blankets. The cedar is supposed to repel moths and other insects. It seems to work as I have never observed any moths or insects inside the chest. Nor have I observed any evidence that moths have been present in the form of holes in the fabric of the sheets and blankets.

 

The cleaning service Salt Lake City comes every two weeks. This seems to be the proper interval. It is short enough so that things do not get out of hand in terms of messiness but it is long enough so that I do not feel like I am spending too much money. Accordingly, although my king sized bed, two dressers, two nightstands, my desk and my cedar chest comprise the furniture inside my room, the last piece of furniture is the housekeeping service Salt Lake City that visits every two weeks which makes the room a complete set.

The Clean and Simple Truth of it All

The Clean and Simple Truth of it All

The simple truth regarding the process of hiring of a maid service Salt Lake City is that once the hiring has gone into effect the person who has hired the service no longer has to clean their own house. This is true for the very obvious reason that the house keeping service once hired will then perform the house cleaning thus relieving the person who hired them of this obligation. Accordingly, once freed of the obligation to clean his or her house, the person who hired said home cleaning Salt Lake City service becomes free to pursue all those other activities he or she would have not had the time to do so because he or she was busy cleaning his or her house. What other activities might that person be able to perform? The possibilities are only limited by the specificity of terms used to describe these other activities whatever they may be. The possibilities are also limited by any physical or mental handicaps that person may be suffering from. There are far to many factors to answer this question with the specificity required to satisfy the reader. As such the answer to that question is quite beyond the scope of a three hundred to five hundred word article written for the purposes of making another website more relevant in a search engine’s listings.

 

But I digress. Once that person who hired a maid service Salt Lake City to clean his or her home becomes free to perform all these other activities he or she then becomes a changed person. In truth every day we become new people as uncountable numbers of the cells which make up are bodies die and are created. More than that, each day the sum total of our life experience has increased. As for the person who hired the cleaning service, he or she now has shaped his or her life in a new and tidy direction.

Getting Comfortable With the ASVAB

Getting Comfortable With the ASVAB

The best way to properly prepare and get comfortable with the ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery) test is to take multiple versions of the ASVAB practice test. When a candidate for enlistment in the United States Armed Services takes the ASVAB practice test he or she will be exposed to the test format as well as the ten distinct subject areas tested on the exam. The first subject area is General Science and covers generally the material contained within a typical high school science curriculum. This includes but is not limited to a smattering of biology, chemistry, physics, and geology. The second subject area, Arithmetic Reasoning covers the basic operations of arithmetic testing the candidate’s grasp of how they function on a logical level. The third subject area, Word Knowledge covers basic vocabulary and tests the candidate’s breadth of exposure to language necessary for effective communication. The fourth subject area is Paragraph Comprehension and deals with grammatical rules related to the construction of paragraphs and the written word. The fifth subject area is Mathematics Knowledge which differs from the second subject area Arithmetic Reasoning in that this section will test the candidate’s working knowledge of the various functions and operations inherent in basic mathematics. The sixth subject area is Electronics Information which tests the candidate’s comprehension and basic theory of electronics and it practical functioning. The seventh subject area is Automotive and Shop Information which probes the candidate’s understanding of the construction, operation and maintenance of automotive engines and related equipment. The eighth subject area is Mechanical Comprehension which covers material related to the understanding of the operation of mechanical components and the machines in which they operate. The ninth subject area is Assembling Objects which will test the candidate’s ability to understand how objects interrelate and come together to create tools and other multi-object constructions. Finally, the tenth subject area is Verbal Expression and will test the candidate’s ability to communicate effectively using the spoke word. Every candidate who takes the ASVAB practice test will become familiar with each of the aforementioned subject areas.

Utah has one of the fastest growing wedding industries in the entire country; the high number of couples married each year in the Beehive state has given rise to countless wedding vendors including photographers, caterers, reception venues, florists, and so on.While all aspects of your wedding day are important, perhaps there is one that can truly make the experience for all your guests one to remember: the food.

Too often engaged couples give too little thought to the food that will be served at their impending wedding reception. If there is one thing wedding guests recall long after a wedding (besides the bride and groom), it is the food served. Delicious food has a way of remaining in the mind of guests long after the event is over.

One of the most difficult and often frustrating parts of making sure your wedding food is delicious, is actually selecting the right caterer for the job.

Not to worry, we have narrowed down the steps that need to be taken in order to find the perfect caterer.

References

Gather references from friends and families who have used a local catering company in the past. These are typically the most valuable references you will find because they will be honest and candid and will give you a really good perspective of which caterers you should pursue. If you attended an event in the past where you found the food to be heavenly, ask those who put on the event the name of the caterer they used.

Online Websites

Another great way to track down potential caterers is to simply browse online. Since the internet has become so common in the past few years, most companies (especially vendors of some sort) have a website. The more professional the website, chances are the better the caterer will be. Often they will list contact information, pricing, and pictures of their past events.

Schedule Interviews

Once you have gathered references and made note of prospective caterers, contact each one and set up an interview time. Be aware of caterers who lack enthusiasm or are in the slightest way hesitant to work with you. Interviews should be conducted in person, not over the phone. This will give you an idea of how they interact with others professionally and if they are personable (remember, you will be dealing with this person or company for an extensive amount of time). You should also look over their portfolio of past events and of course, sample the food. If you are not impressed with the food, move on!

Costs

During the interview, ask about costs. Many companies charge on a per person basis, so you should have an idea of how many guests you will have so you can get an estimate. Inquire about any additional costs that you may want, such as cake cutting, bar tending, etc.

Menu Options

You want the menu to be as unique as you are; if the caterer does not offer something you want, ask if they would be willing to do it. Many caterers will customize menus for their clients. If you do this, make sure you get a breakdown of the costs.
