When my grandmother said that I needed to meet her to go look at monuments in Essex County NJ recently, I was confused. She is only 65 years old, and I didn’t understand why she felt that we needed to go look at them. She explained that she is at an age where anything can happen to her, and she did not want me to have to deal with picking out her headstone after she passes away. She is my only relative who is alive, and she said that she wanted to make sure that she handles everything. However, she thought it would be a good for me to go with her so that I will understand everything she is picking out early for herself.
My grandmother has always been fun and quirky. She is also very loving. I lost my parents when I was young, and my grandmother took me into her own home. Read the rest of this entry
So how does recycling your old mobile phone impact on the environment?
When you recycle something like a mobile phone it creates a circular supply chain. These types of supply chain benefit the environment in a number of ways. They reduce carbon emissions, as there is no longer a need to produce all of the components such as printed circuit boards. This has an effect further back on the supply chain, as less of the primary materials are sourced-so the carbon footprint reduces further.
Another benefit is waste management. At this point emissions are reduced as there is less metal and electronic waste (e-waste) which ends up in the landfill recycling process. Nearly all metal waste can be and is melted down to its purest form and re-used: It is important that we do this to keep scarce natural resources in circulation. Although the waste from your recycled mobile phone still has to be recycled, this it carried out by specialist, private companies and does not impact on government waste management funds.
There is an estimated 20-50 million tonnes of e-waste produced each year which can house harmful components such as lead and cadmium. This waste makes up 5% of all solid waste and with an average lifespan of only 2 years for a mobile phone (in developed countries), it can only increase.
Still think its just too much hassle to recycle your phone?
Perhaps you should think about not only the long term environmental damage e-waste will do to our planet, but the long term damage it will do to your finances. When you choose to throw away your phone with general household waste it is taken away by your local Council. This service is paid for with your taxes and if we continue to increase the levels of household waste we produce then ultimately we will pay.
It also impacts your pocket at the point of sale. Not re-using valuable metal and electronic components means the manufacturers have had to pay to source and develop new materials. You can guarantee that rather than make a loss on profits the companies will up their prices to cover these costs, so it all comes back to the consumer.
The real benefits
Recycling your phone benefits the environment in terms of reducing emissions, lessening the use of scarce natural resources and reducing the amount of waste that ends up in unsightly landfills.
Not only do you feel better for knowing you did your bit to help us reach our carbon emissions target, but you know youve saved yourself money in the long run, and thats certainly worth the time.

Dialer’s cars today often come in a set of “power tools”. These integrated features go a long way in increasing the productivity of individual sales representatives and whole sales teams. Auto Dialers calls automatically patch through sales representatives. These calls are based off of a list of Loaded and increase the number of calls each representative can make in a single day. An auto dialer can triple the number of contacts made in a typical work day from eight hours to reduce the time spent dialing individual numbers and eliminate human errors that occur with manual dialing.
The CTI (Computer Telephony Integration) provides a more automated control for sales reps using an auto dialer. This technology connects the marker to a CRM (customer relationship management system customer). With CTI, previously collected data on each call is automatically displayed on the screen of the computer sales representative. This allows the agent knows what has to happen with every call he or she is doing. This information can be edited and added to the call while performing, and notes and monitoring tasks can be loaded from the screen directly to the company CRM.
Lead nurturing technology also improves the productivity of an auto dialer. Lead nurturing is the process of preparing to convert leads into customers in the future. This often involves the use of fax, email and voice messaging. These options can be integrated directly into the interface of an auto dialer that gives sales representatives the option of leaving these messages quickly without spending a lot of time to do. Pre -made and recorded messages are saved in the library automatic marker posts and with a mouse click sales representatives can send these messages to your prospects as they move on another call. The auto dialer will even voice messages automatically, and the sales rep does not have to wait for the message to be completed before the call is disconnected.
Auto makers are versatile tools that can be used in the generation of lead as well as contact leads. They can even be used successfully in customer service and customer care programs. Auto Dialers help employees make better use of their time more lead contact and reach their sales goals. Auto Dialers can be customized to meet the needs of any business and are a valuable investment for any team of inside sales.
In this way we can get maximum benefits through Cloud based Auto Dialer software.

It is important to keep the body as cool as possible during the summer months, which can be sometimes an -uphill task- for Muslim women that wear hijabs. The obvious tip is to suggest thinner and cooler fabrics in hotter weather – but it is also important to stick to absorbent materials as well. Fabrics such as georgette, chiffon and lace are therefore obviously great choices for the summer months.
Clothing with -air holes- – which allows more air to flow – are great in summer, with lace undercaps and loose crocheted caps both being very effective. Scarf headbands have become with the modern young Muslim and are a useful alternative to undercaps as they provide almost the same coverage but with a lot less material – as they just cover the forehead.

Reducing the amount of material wrapped around the neck and top of the head is a wonderful relief on hot days – as this is where a lot of body heat leaves the body. Experiment with styles and how you pin your khimars. For the cooler summer days, a hat (should never substitute a khimar) could be a stylish addition to your wardrobe and they can be great play on style during the summer months.
Al-Amira hijabs are always worth a recommendation. The translation of the name means -princess scarf’ and it’s a slip over hijab style comes in two pieces; one piece of which serves as a hair cover while the other piece as a slip over from the same or near matching colour. Al-Amira hijabs are ideally suited for hotter climates as most of them are made out of light and absorbent materials.
Al-Amira Regular Plain Hijabs No Lace
Sarongs are a huge length of fabric that is very versatile and there is nothing stopping you from using one as a summary khimar. They are traditionally wrapped around the waist as a skirt by women and are usually made of very absorbent materials. They also come in a variety of stylish colours, patterns, and various sizes that would add some flair to anyone’s summer wardrobe.
Although not specifically designed for Muslim women – maxi dresses can be practically perfect for Islamic women after a slight moderation -just add a long sleeve shirt or jacket to make them more Muslim friendly. These light, modest and informal dresses usually reach the floor and provide excellent light and cool coverage.
Wearing clothes like this should make summer 2010 a much cooler experience for Muslim women everywhere!
