Egyptian Jewelry And It’s Beginning

The jewelry industry has probably existed since the beginning of civilization. Man’s earliest need, beyond food, shelter and clothing, was that of attracting the opposite sex and establishing a place of importance within the primitive society.

This led to the importance of being different, even before the first words were uttered. What started with leaves, twigs, stones of various colors and shells and even bones has now culminated into a prosperous industry that uses precious metals like gold, silver and platinum, alloys and gemstones to accentuate beauty.

The very first established and recorded civilizations was that on the banks of the fertile river Nile. The “Gift of the Nile” or Egypt, has a special place even in contemporary history because of the influence it has had on world events that have rippled down till today. The pharaohs and their extravagant lifestyles are still the dream of many of our celebrities.

The civilization was unique in every aspect including lifestyle, beliefs, festivals, gods and even jewelry! The very first established jewelry making industry in Egypt thrived around 3,000-5,000 years ago! The people were known to give great importance to luxury and rarity to prove their social status. They preferred the workability that gold offered over other metals that were accessible to them via extensive trade practices.

The Egyptians acquired much gold from the deserts of Africa and Nubia. This they captured as spoils of war and the tributes from defeated nations. Jewelry in Egypt symbolized power within the community. They wore and flaunted their jewelry when alive and even in death! This fact and the exquisiteness of their jewelry comes from archeological evidence on excavating the famous tombs of the rich pharaohs.

The Egyptians used gold jewelry with settings of colored glass and precious gems. They had access to gemstones from the world over, however their preference for the colors they could create in glass is amply seen in the recovered jewelry. They went to the extent of actually creating a glass formulation to replicate nearly each gemstone.

According to their ‘Book of the Dead’, each color used in jewelry making denoted something. The color of the jewelry was very important to them. According to the book, a necklace of Isis around a mummy’s neck should be red in color to symbolize the need for blood, while green jewelry stood for plenty and fertility.

Egyptian jewelry was designed via customization demands made by royalty, in large workshops that were attached to the temples and palaces. The Egyptian men and women wore elaborate gold and silver designs for the popular religious ceremonies, which were practically on a daily basis.

Jewelry-making was a significant craft. The designs live on today in the world market dedicated to the replication of the multitude of gold, silver and semi-precious stones and artifacts. The demand for embellished gold figurines, close-fitting collar necklaces, jewel-headed pins, ankle bracelets and heavy multi-strand necklaces is ample proof of this.

Jewelry in Egypt was set with brightly-colored stones, real gemstones and glass replicates in the form of leaves, spirals, cones, and bunches of grapes. Egyptian jewelry demands the use of a wide variety of sophisticated metalworking techniques.

Emerging Technology Involving Credit/Debit Cards

With an increasing trend in online shopping and transactions happening across the globe, there is an imperative need for a plastic card, which will be safe and secure to use. We need to address online fraud, more so in cases where card not present (CNP) transactions like a telephonic order. Every day, millions of consumers use the plastic currencies to make or receive payments across the globe conveniently and quickly. Is it safe and is it getting better?

Visa has a two-fold responsibility – to protect the information of the cardholder and to transfer value in a safe and secure environment devoid of fraud and theft. These transactions may be online or made in person. Visa Europe partnered with EMUE Technologies Pty Ltd to develop a stylish and powerful solution to address the growing cases of CNP fraud. They have been addressing these issues with initiatives like CVV2, and verified by Visa. They are testing a new Visa card with the help of MBNA (UK), Corner Bank (Switzerland), Cal (Israel) and IW Bank (Italy). This card has a built in computer that will generate a one-time password in a random manner. This new design has incorporated a microprocessor, a 12 button key pad, 8 digit number displays and a battery lasting a minimum of three years. It is a fully ISO compliant card, authentic and user friendly. This card can also be deployed for identity card purposes as well.

The card holder is given a pin number secretly. The individual is required to enter the pin into the card. This will then generate a number randomly and is displayed. This will remain the security code (CVV code) for all transactions and is generated only once. The validity and secrecy is maintained with only the individual having access to the PIN number.

Issuing banks have been given an unchallenged method in preserving the integrity and security during online, telephonic, personal transactions and a much safer method in cases of fund transfer. Thus, they ensure that the individual does not have to share his credentials with any other source that cannot be trusted upon.

For now, let us just wait and watch the response gained as these are monetary transactions before stepping in for action.

About EMUE: EMUE Technologies is a privately held Australian firm with a vision to address issues regarding authentication in an attempt to mitigate theft. They have partnered with Deloitte Touche Tohamatsu in 2006 to help roll out of the products and services. They are leaders in providing secure access.

Visa Europe became independent of the new global Visa Inc. in the year 2007. The new global Visa Inc. restructured and listed in the New York Stock Exchange in the year 2008. They have begun trading publicly with one the largest initial public offering in the U.S. A membership association was formed and operated by approximately 4600 European member banks in the name of Visa Europe. Together, they operate electronic payment network in a global manner by facilitating global commerce. They transfer information and value amongst financial institutions, merchants, consumers, and governments across 170 nations and territories.

A Review Of The JET JMS-12SCMS Sliding Compound Miter Saw

Most professional woodworkers, or anyone interesting in woodworking, knows the name JET when table saws come to mind. And this has been true for many years. What’s not well-known is the fact JET has been selling dual bevel compound miter saws for the past two or three years.

The lineup consists of two models: the 10″ JMS-10SCMS and the 12″ JMS-12SCMS. The features of the two models are nearly identical so we’re just going to talk about the JMS-12SCMS here.

How Buyers Rated This Saw

It was difficult finding buyer reviews for the JET miter, telling me just how unknown it is. But of the six or seven I did find, all but two gave it a solid five star rating. The remaining two gave it four stars, one didn’t like the dust collection bag – a normal complaint with miter saws – and the other didn’t care for the plastic handles and control knobs.

“Accurate right out of the box” is what a couple of buyers said and another was especially impressed with the 60 tooth blade that comes on the JMS-12SCMS.

Make Your Job Easier With These Features

The unique features of this saw will help you do your work faster and easier and with more precision. And some to make it last longer, with less maintenance and cleaning. First off, the controls are all up front, even the bevel lock. To unlock and lock the bevel setting on most miter saws you have to go to the trouble of reaching around to the back, and that’s time consuming. With the Jet miter saw, that’s history.

And then there are the swing-out arms to give additional support when you’re cutting wider stock, that I’ve never seen on any other saw. Also, there are wheels on the edge of the clear blade guard to make it glide smoothly over wide boards.

The JMS-12SCMS also has a green laser, not the usual red, to help you make precision cuts in any lighting conditions.

One obvious difference in the JMS-12SCMS that you notice as soon as you see it is the power train. The motor is mounted out of the way, directly above and to the back of the blade. The manufacturer points out that this gives you greater cutting capacity but I think it’s important to point out it also gives you better visibility; the motor housing won’t be blocking your view of the cut area or casting a shadow on it.

JET made this motor location possible by using a belt drive, instead of the gears most manufacturers use, and as a bonus, it’s also quieter. And with the belt inside a sealed housing, dust getting into it is not a concern. The same can be said for the slide rail system, by the way.

Negatives

As mentioned by one buyer and referenced above, the dust collection bag leaves a bit to be desired. However, this is a common complaint with most miter saws. Most professional carpenters connect their saw’s dust chute to a shop vac or some other dust extraction system for this reason.

One other possible problem I noticed in the specifications is the JMS-12SCMS has a 5/8″ arbor, where most 12″ saw blades come standard with a 1″ bore. Meaning, to replace the blade, you’ll probably have to buy a reducing bushing and these aren’t readily available at the big stores like Home Depot. I do know of one online blade dealer that sells bushings and if you order your blade through JustSawBlades they’ll have the bushing thrown in free. They also handle some 12″ blades with a 5/8″ bore.

Conclusion

It’s surprising to me that such a good sliding compound miter saw hasn’t made a bigger impact on the market, especially since it carries the name JET. The JET JMS-12SCMS is a well thought out and precision machine, like their well-known table saws, but it’s actually more competitively priced, right in the range of Milwaukee, DeWalt and Makita.

Diesel Generators Selection Criteria!

Once again, you are sitting in the dark wondering where the candles and torches are; wishing you had bought one of those diesel generators after that last black out. Rummaging through the cupboard to get a little light back into your life, you promise yourself to check out the price of diesel generators as soon as the power is back on.

Most of today’s world is completely dependent on electricity of some sort; whether you are connected to a power grid or you use a generator. Power grid outages are more common than ever before and while electricity suppliers work quickly to get the power back on, the reality is most of us would find a diesel generator handy. Most homeowners have always thought diesel generators were priced out of their reach. This is not necessarily so. You need to look at diesel generators as an investment in your future. Weigh up the differences between the different fuel types, sizes and brands before deciding what is right for you.

The big expensive diesel generators are the ones that supply backup power to schools, hospitals and businesses; and in emergency situations. But there are diesel generators for domestic use that are a lot more affordable. Diesel generators cost more than other types initially, but you will be rewarded with more reliability and power output if you keep up the recommended servicing for the life of your generator.

Diesel generators are much more reliable than other fuel types if they are used correctly. They like to work hard, so starting your diesel generator for short periods of time will do it more harm than good. A diesel generator is designed to work at around 75% of the maximum load. These machines are known for their staying power where others fail. It is unlikely you will have had to do any major work to a diesel generator by the time another comparative fuel type needs a complete overhaul or replacing. But you must follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for preventive maintenance to keep your diesel generator in top working order. There is nothing more frustrating than buying something to do a job it is not suited for ��” make sure you do your research. It is important you take a look at what you need your generator to do as it will cost you more in the long run if you don’t buy the right generator in the first place. Buying a diesel engine is about cost-effectiveness over the long term so don’t be fooled by cut-price specials at local discount or hardware stores.

Diesel generators come in all sizes from 1 kVA to 10 kVA for portable ones; from 8 kVA to 30 kVA for small commercial businesses and households; and anything up to 2000 kVA for hospitals, big buildings and manufacturing plants. Choosing the one that suits your needs at home is quite easy. Add up the output of all the appliances in your household that you want to run. Then add about another 20% to allow for appliances like air conditioners that regularly start up and run. Do get advice from your local supplier.

Many people associate diesel generators with old, dirty noisy machines. These days manufacturers have designed their diesel generators to be environmentally friendly and relatively maintenance-free. Another advantage of diesel generators is they are tougher and more reliable than their competitors and use up to 50% less fuel than gas powered generators. No matter what you need a generator for you will find one that meets your needs.

Taking The Wedding Back

There is a point in the preparation of any wedding where you want to throw your arms up in the air and just scream “That’s it, I’m done.” It’s the first time in the six or seven months leading up to the wedding where the idea of just running off to Vegas seems like anything but a joke. This is typically around the time where you’re debating whether to get a mustard sauce or a honey mustard sauce for your appetizers, and trying to decide whether a titanium ring will clash with cufflinks that the groomsman is going to wear. The thing is that this is an important moment in any wedding: this is the moment where you take a deep breath and realize that a wedding is for the bride and the groom and everyone else, no matter how much they want to input, can just butt out of the equation.

I didn’t mean for that last sentence to sound so mean, but having multiple people making decisions on a wedding day will only lead to a lot of drama and even more hurt feelings. Most wedding’s run into difficulties when advice is taken by other parties. How do I know this? Because I’ve gone through it. When I got married to my husband we were young and naïve and decided that we needed the help of our parents to plan our dream wedding. Well, after a few months, we realized that our dream wedding had turned into their dream wedding, with more issues arising from the fact that each parent had a different idea of what exactly a dream wedding should consist of.

There came a point where we found that we needed to make a decision: either take it over ourselves or just be miserable at our own wedding. It’s not that the ideas that our parents had were bad, it’s just that there were too many of them. We found ourselves having to combine all the ideas into a wedding that began to look increasingly unattractive to us. So with about four months to go until the wedding we decided to take back control and do our own wedding. We hurt a few egos and had to make some tough phone calls, but in the end we were able to put together a wedding that we wanted.

So when you hit that point where you feel like your wedding is skidding away from you, the best decision you can make is to take a step back and look at what you really want in your wedding and what others are making you do. It’s one of the smartest things you can do.
