Eating Clean Challenges: Family Not on the Same Page

DebtFreeHEALTH.com I recently posted of my decision to ‘Eat Clean’ and my first trip to the local Farmer’s Market. Well, when I came home, my husband announced he did not see ANY food among the things I brought home. I realized that as long as I was clean eating for me, I got the support, but the moment I decided I was going to cook this way for the family – well, they let me know – THEY did NOT make the same decisions I did. Now what? I don’t plan to do two sets of supermarket shopping and cook two sets of meals. Any suggestions? I look forward to hearing from you.

Wikipedia

The Great Blue Turaco (Corythaeola cristata) is a turaco, a group of African near-passerines. It is not only the largest turaco but the largest species in the diverse Cuculiformes order (which includes the cuckoos). Generally, the Great Blue Turaco is 70–76 cm (28–30 in) in length with a mass of 800–1,231 g (1.8–2.71 lb). In the Bandundu province of the DR Congo, the Great Blue Turaco is actively hunted for meat and feathers. The blue and yellow tail feathers are prized for making good luck talismans. In the area of Bandundu around the city of Kikwit, it is called "Kolonvo".

The Great Blue Turaco (Corytheola cristata) has to be one of the more challenging species. Whilst these stunning birds provide hours of entertainment with their boisterous and ungainly nature they can prove to be a bit of a handful. Aggression can be sporadic and spontaneous and can disappear just as quickly, yet some individuals can be incredibly shy.

Housing this species was a matter of personal preference. They adapt well and thrive in both heated glass aviaries or outside flights in sub-zero temperatures. The species is a frugivore but are also very happy to consume leafy material. This can be supplied in various forms with lettuce being of particular interest. The diet itself heavily depends upon the resources available. Most fruits are accepted, the softer and more juicy fruits being preferred, cucumber should also be added to this list of fruit. The diet as with most softbill species should be enhanced with a vitamin/mineral supplement and the provision of a fruit-based softbill mix.

Perching, as with most turaco species is paramount and the provision of strong and securely hung perching is necessary. The Blue Turaco is a great fan of ‘crashing around’ which can be misconstrued as being quite deliberate, especially during an early weekend morning! Fortunately the species isn’t destructive so aviaries can be well planted. Certain species of fruit bearing tree can be targeted for green forage so to plant expensive tropical fruit trees in the aviary may be a mistake. Otherwise the species rarely comes to ground and shows little destructive quality for the majority of aviary plants. Some damage in the form of leaf shredding may be seen on plants such as the banana, but in this case the plant shows no ill effects caused by the damage.

The blues are short-range strong fliers and will readily use the space afforded them. As mentioned secure perching is required in all areas of the aviary and if given the option the birds will bounce across an aviary rather than fly despite their agility in the air.

How is it possible that a zero coupon Treasury bond has the same yield as a regular Treasury?

Question by tripplet7: How is it possible that a zero coupon Treasury bond has the same yield as a regular Treasury?
How is it possible that a zero coupon Treasury bond has the same yield as a regular Treasury bond with the same maturity? I would think that since zero coupon Treasuries have no reinvestment risk (because there are no coupon payments), it would have a lower yield to maturity than a comparable maturity Treasury bond that pays coupon interest. How is it possible that they both offer roughly equivalent yields?

Best answer:

Answer by JoeyV
First off, are you comparing yields in the same way? Treasuries would usually be quoted on a yield to maturity basis and a zero would be quoted on a discount yield.

Second, there are lots of different treasuries out there and they are priced differently for the same time until maturity. People pay differently for premium/discount bonds. The on-the-run bond (most recently issued bond) is 100x more liquid than any other bond of similar maturity so it commands a premium. Often “Treasury yield curves” are quoted from the on-the-run bond which is just nuts and messes your comparison because the zeros likely aren’t from on-the-run bonds. The cheapest-to-deliver bond for the futures contract also sells for more than it would otherwise be worth.

If you are talking about the same maturity then the Treasury bond has lower duration than the zero and the zero would usually have a higher yield. However, if the term structure of interest rates is sufficently inverted the zero can have lower yield. It’s just usually the case that long term yields are higher than short term yields which means that it is usually the case that duration costs which means zeros should be more expensive and have smaller yield (This is true now).

For a fixed duration (which means the Treasury has longer maturity) the zero will always cost more because it has more convexity. That means you lose less when interest rates rise and gain more when they fall with a zero than a coupon bond. Convexity always costs.

Zeros can be stripped from coupon bonds and then reconstituted back into whole bonds through the Treasury STRIPS program. That means that the zeros are almost always priced in an arbitrage-free way or some bond dealer would fix the problem.

Cooking Tips – You Can Teach Your Own Children Then They Don’t Have to Go Down the Same Path

Cooking Tips – You Can Teach Your Own Children Then They Don’t Have to Go Down the Same Path

We have all been there; you grow up and at some point need to start your young adult live on your own two legs. You get you own place to stay, sleep and, of course cook so you can eat. The first time was a very strange and maybe evens a scary moment. People who had the biggest problem in this stage of their lives are the ones that were not given any cooking tips when they grew up.
For more details go to: www.bread-bakers-assistant.com People who never got any advice on cooking when they were young could even a problem warming up some hot dogs. We need to make sure that our children learn how to cook so they won’t be surprised the moment they need to cook on their own. We don’t want to see them eating out in all kinds of, maybe fast food, restaurants.

Even if you didn’t get any cooking tips in your childhood and because of this hardly know how to cook for yourself, it is not too late. You just need to get good tips on cooking but you have to make sure that you learn from someone who has been giving lessons for a long time or who knows how to pass on this knowledge to others. Another option is to get a good book on the subject and try it that way; you could even consult the internet for good recipes and try it that way. The main thing is that you learn to do it your self so you can teach your own children then they don’t have to go down the same path that you gone. And isn’t the idea nice that maybe one day the recipes you thought your children will passed towards their children.

Trial and Error come before Success

We all would love to just learn something and then reproduce that in to a successful end result but we all know that almost never happens. The same goes for cooking tips you learn. For help visit: www.tailgating-recipe.com The first time you will probably fail but by doing this and knowing what you did wrong you can perfect it for the next time you try it. When you teach your children the fine art of cooking and you them making a mistake let them make it. And after they see what went wrong they will learn from it. There is no harm in a little experimenting in the kitchen, great recipes were born from doing just that, probably it will taste less then is should but they will learn what happens if you mix certain things together and they will have fun in the kitchen. Always give some of your personal tips and secrets to the ones you teach so they will see it as a reward of their efforts. When we speak of letting them make mistakes we mean the kind that doesn’t burn the house down but only influences the taste of the recipe a bit.

It is important we know how to cook when we start living on our own, teach your children the fun of being in the kitchen. Make the kitchen a place the family likes to stay in when you’re cooking. That way you will interest them for cooking food and will benefit them once they become adults.

Can I Use the Lowe’s 10% movers coupon on multiple items purchased at the same time?

Question by crf4dci: Can I Use the Lowe’s 10% movers coupon on multiple items purchased at the same time?
The coupon says….. Limit one coupon per household. Good for a single purchase of any in-stock or Special Order merchandise only up to $ 5,000 (Maximum discount $ 500).
I forgot to add this would be used on some Lowe’s “priced matched” appliances.

Best answer:

Answer by mps
Yes. The coupon is good for all Stock or Special Order items purchased on the same receipt. However, the discount does not apply to labor for an installation project.

If the store is ‘price matching’ then No. The cash register will accept the coupon but will not give the additional discount. That’s what’s called “double dipping”. Furthermore, now that your coupon has been scanned, it will no longer be valid.

I reccommend saving the coupon for another purchase.
