How does the credit card work

MostOld Plastic money (project365 - 17/365)

How does the credit card work

If a caveman came back and made his way to a store
offering Point of Sale (PoS) payment mode, he would be
baffled by the ease at which Homo sapiens do their own
version of hunting.

In truth, the simple act of swapping a small card into
a terminal to effect a transaction would bewilder the
uninitiated, and not necessary the early man.

What happens?

How the payment is finally processed?

These are just some of the questions that even some
card holders don’t bother to ask, either to themselves
or anyone (it is a possibility that some store workers
don’t fully understand it as well), so you are not
alone.

Here are some quick hints.

Every time one uses a credit card to purchase
something, several industry players offering different
services then come forward to complete the
transaction.

Once the card is swiped across a PoS terminal, the
terminal electronically reads the cards holder
information and then through a phone line, it asks for
an authorization to complete the transaction from the
processing network which is responsible for
translating the information given at the PoS sale
point.

The data is then sent to the issuing bank to check
whether the account is valid and that the transaction
is within the allowed credit limits.

The network is then triggered to send an approval code
to the PoS terminal. The details are then saved at the
PoS which are then sent to the processing bank at the
end of the day which then pays funds into the
merchant’s account.

Yoga is not just doing yoga and executing the poses

Mrs. Bright SideDay 26The Way Things Ought To Be

Yoga is not just doing yoga and executing the poses.

Following these tips will help you.

1. Why not try private lessons? You can book some one-on-one sessions with a teacher in your area. Most yoga instructors offer private classes or can help you design your own program. This is a good way to get started. You can always take group lessons or practice at home after youíve had private lessons and learned the basics.

2. Listen to your body and be aware of your physical abilities. You don’t want to hurt yourself. Make sure the instructor understands your level of experience and any limitations you may have. Donít allow anyone to push you ahead too quickly. Remember, this is supposed to be fun and relaxing.

3. Find a yoga class that best fits your abilities. Talk to prospective teachers, and decide whether of not you can handle a program before you sign up. Itís very important to take it one step at a time. Try a few beginner classes before you attempt more vigorous classes. Donít move ahead too quickly. Allow your body to adjust to your exercises.

4. Eat lightly before practice. Wait at least two hours after meals before yoga class or practice. An empty stomach is best, but donít let yourself get too hungry to think. You won’t be able to focus on the poses or enjoy yourself during the relaxation or meditation exercises.

5. Find a yoga buddy. Itís nice to practice with someone and it will help reduce injuries. Itís also a great way to keep up your enthusiasm and interest.

6. Talk to your doctor and explain what type of yoga poses you intend to practice. Show your doctor pictures of the poses for illustration. Your doctor may rule out specific poses if you have high blood pressure, glaucoma, a history of retinal detachment, or heart disease. Make sure you follow your doctorís recommendations.

7. If you canít find a class that meets your needs, you can always practice yoga at home. There are many books, programs, and tapes available to help you get started. Search for the best products on the Internet and read reviews. Talk to others for recommendations.

A recent study out of Yale University School of Medicine had 33 men and women who practiced yoga at that rate. This lowered their blood pressure and improved their blood vesselsí ability to expand and contract by 17%. Researchers believe the improvements are based on the stress-reducing benefits of yoga.

 

 

If you want to learn the yoga positions for beginners, you can learn it easily at home or at school where yoga is taught.

Chinese Rice Recipes

Chinese Rice Recipes

Rice has always been a traditional part of Chinese
life. It’s cheap, filling, tastes great, and can be
used in many different ways.

Everyone has had steamed rice and fried rice and those
two very simple dishes are a great addition to many
different meals. More popular in the warmer Southern
China, rice is grown all over the place and it has
been for thousands of years.

If you have a Chinese rice recipe that sounds great,
just take your time and learn to cook rice first.

Many people think rice is simple to cook and very hard
to mess up. That couldn’t be farther from the truth.
Rice can be completely ruined in many ways.

There could be too much water, too little water, it
can be overcooked, undercooked, and burnt. Anyone who
has had restaurant quality rice and then tried to
recreate it has learned this lesson.

Chinese recipes usually call for a specific type of
rice that is cooked a certain way. If you think your
jasmine rice will taste just as good a little crunchy,
you are very wrong.

Improperly cooked rice can annihilate even the most
delicious Chinese recipe and the reaction from friends
and family might turn you off from cooking Chinese
food for a long time.

The easiest way to cook rice is with a rice cooker.
These are fairly cheap and automatically shut off when
the rice is finished.

You can never mess your rice up again as long as you
follow the directions of the machine and the rice
itself.

By adding perfect rice to accompany a great Chinese
recipe, you will have a much better reaction from
everyone who eats it.

Chinese Recipes

 Chinese recipes for cooking are some of the most
interesting and delicious types you can find.

From your standard stir fry to more exotic dishes with
shrimp or duck, Chinese recipes are sure to be a big
hit at your dinner table or any type of get together.

There are thousands of Chinese recipes out there you
can find in cookbooks, on television, or on the
Internet.

Chinese recipes are often handed down throughout the
generations and some have origins that date back
thousands of years. Granted, there wasn’t near the
technology we have today with electric woks, rice
cookers, and deep fryers but the recipes remain
unchanged.

Chinese recipes have a very rich history and cultural
heritage but many were created by the lower class who
worked very hard and needed to have a good meal. This
is why so many Chinese recipes revolve around China’s
main food staple. Rice.

Rice is a very important part of Chinese recipes. Not
just for it’s filling properties but because the
climate in China is perfect for rice.

It grows fairly fast and has a high yield making it
the perfect food to accompany a meat or seafood dish.
By adding rice, a meal for two can easily become a
meal for five. This is accomplished in the same way by
using another staple of Chinese food which is noodles.

Chinese recipes vary from being easy to taking hours
upon hours to prepare. If you are not used to Chinese
cooking, you may need to buy some new cookware that is
suitable for what you will be making.

A wok is very handy for stir fry and deep fried dishes
and is a lot less messy than your standard frying pan.
With a little trial and error, you can make many
different Chinese recipes a fun new addition to your
menu.
