WoW PVP Warlock Pets

As Warlocks we see so many players that use their character differently then we do. Different talent trees, different use of gems, stat foods, and most confusing, different use of pets. In a PVP situation we need to know what pet is going to keep us alive longer and help us rack up the honor points.Here are a few observations that I have made as a Warlock and watching other Warlocks in PVP situations concerning pets.

Many Warlocks chose to use an Imp. The Imp is who we are most familiar with, he is by our side almost from the first minute of leveling. He gives us a stamina buff that keeps us alive longer and when certain talent points and glyphs are used he can be quite deadly! Many PVP Warlocks use an Imp but simply put him on passive. They rely on fear and dots to kill enemies and use their Imp only for the stamina buff or have him attack a player when they are clearly losing the fight.

The Voidwalker is a protector. We learn early on in the game that a Voidwalker is there to keep us from getting hurt while we hurl away spells. We also learn that the Voidwalker doesn’t help very much when it comes to dealing damage, he is strickly a wall between you and another player but with a scroll of defense he is as protective as if he were wearing plate armor.

Pesky humanoid on your tail? Pull out the Fel Guard! Complete with leather outfits and whips she will charm an enemy into paralyzation. The lash of pain she can deal to an enemy can do quite the helpful amount of damage. I don’t see many people using the Fel Guard, however because lets face it, she cant seduce everyone!

If you are having trouble going up against players who deal magic damage, take the fel hunter out for a spin! The fel hunter devous magic and spell blocks! A caster is nearly defensless against him. He also deals a respectable amount of damage while he keeps casters off of your back. However, the Fel Hunter needs to watch his back when it comes to melee, he can be sliced and diced in a short amount of time.

The best of the best, in my opinion is the Fel Guard! You see him in many PVP situations. The Fel Guard is the ultimate protector, he can take damage like no other pet and deal it nearly as well. The Fel Guard can stun the enemy, deal damage, and keep him off of your back while you blast him away with spells.

While I have seen a number of pets used with different talent points, glyphs and scrolls, in my opinion there is only one way to go in PVP and that is to take my Fel Guard by my side. With him around I am protected and fearless.



What Types of Vegetables Can I Eat on the Candida Diet?

Loading up on vegetables is a terrific dieting strategy. Vegetables are filled with essential vitamins and nutrients and are a great choice for any healthy diet but are all vegetables created equal? Believe it or not some vegetables may not be appropriate for certain types of diets. The candida diet is one of these diets in which you must pay particular attention to what type of and how much of certain vegetables you eat. To understand what types and why you must eliminate or reduce certain vegetables you must first understand what the goal of the candida diet is.

The candida diet is the cornerstone of treatment for a condition known as candidiasis. Candidiasis is a condition in which Candida albicans, a typically benign type of yeast become and opportunistic organism in the intestinal system. Candida albicans is an innate part of the microflora of the intestinal system which ideally will work in accord with “friendly” types of bacteria to keep the body healthy. Unfortunately, external factors such as overuse of antibiotics, steroids, oral contraceptives, stress and a diet high in processed foods/sugar foods often cause an overgrowth of Candida albicans. When this happens an abundance of toxins are released into the body and cause a variety of seemingly unrelated health problems. Symptoms of candidiasis include but are not limited to chronic yeast infections, chronic sinus infections, irritable bowel syndrome, anxiety, depression and fatigue. The candida diet seeks to cut off the food supply of the Candida albicans by eliminating food that encourages its growth. While the main culprits are sugar, vinegar, fermented foods, glutinous grains and quick acting carbohydrates there are other foods that candida diet guidelines suggest consuming in moderation. Complex grains and high starch vegetables fall under this category because all though they do not break down into sugar as quickly as the simple carbohydrates they do in fact break down into sugar and feed the candida. So which vegetables can we eat freely and which do we eat in moderation on the candida diet?

Vegetables to Eat Freely

Bulb vegetables such as chives, garlic, leeks, onions, scallions, shallots and water chestnuts are all great choices for the candida diet. This group of vegetables can be used to add flavor and texture to meals and onions and garlic in particular have antifungal properties which help combat Candida albicans. Inflorescent vegetables such as artichokes, broccoli, broccoli rabe and cauliflower make great side dishes. Use leaf vegetables such as arugula, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, chicory, collards, endive, lettuce, kale and spinach to complement main dishes and to create delightful salads.

Fruit vegetables, which include avocados, cucumbers, eggplant, okra, peppers and squash will help you to create delightful yeast free meals. Stalk vegetables such as asparagus, celery, chard, fennel and kohlrabi also have a wide variety of uses on the diet.

Vegetables to eat in Moderation

The two types of vegetables that you should eat cautiously on the candida diet are root vegetables and tuber vegetables. Beets, carrots, parsnips, radishes, rutabaga, cassava, potato, sweet potato and yams all belong to this group. You can still enjoy these vegetables on the candida diet but plan meals so that you are not overloading on these types of vegetables.

Understanding The Psychology of An Attacker

There are many reasons why someone commits rape. It is important for you to know the various mindsets of different rapists/assailants. There are those who did it because of their low self-esteem. Below is a list of situations that could apply to them.

1) His family background is not normal

2) He hates himself thus committing a crime helps to boost his own self-confidence. In this case, putting up a spirited struggle is usually effective in discouraging him from continuing his assault.

3) There was a lack of love, or even outright abuse when they were young.

4) He is trying to prove that he is not coward and is longing for some respect so by committing a crime it will boost his male-ego.

5) He is merely looking to satisfy his mental perversion. He derives pleasure from overpowering his victims. In this case, struggling will even excite him. Nevertheless, a good counterattack will still make him hesitate attacking you.

Well, after knowing the background of the attackers, knowing what goes through their minds is of paramount importance. What would be the psychology of an assailant who attacks another person?

1) He is tense and nervous.

2) He aims to complete his job as soon as possible. This is because he know that the faster he finish his job, the lesser his chance of getting caught. That is why it makes him tense and nervous.

3) He does not want to talk. By talking, he feared that he might reveal his fears to his victims. His mind is set on completing the job he has set on doing as quickly as possible. Those who are tense will be unlikely willing to talk.

4) He is afraid of brightly lit areas. This is to avoid his victims recognizing and remembering his face. Other than that, if he assaults you in a well-lit area, there is a chance that others may notice him. Besides he does not want to draw attention.

5) He is afraid of crowds. This is simply because crowds will be able to interfere.

6) He prefers to stay close to the victim. This gives them a chance to terrify as well as putting his victims under more control.

7) He expects that his victims to be fearful of him and be submissive. This is because most people who are attacked do not fight back or even resist. That is why it is important to put up a struggle to further confuse him.

8) He fears that his target is able to fight back. This is because knowing that if his victim is physically and mentally prepared, then his job would be much tougher now. His tendency to back out will increase as his chances of getting into trouble increase. He would want to avoid being arrested. However, it is very important to note that any weak and half-hearted resistance will tend to be provocative instead of a deterrent.



Russian Superstitions

Russians are very superstitious people. They will deny this, but it is true. These superstitions affect my life on a daily basis. Most of the time they are harmless and I go along with them to humor my wife. Sometimes I tease her about them.

New superstitions pop up all the time, as new situations arise in our life. I keep telling her that I need a rulebook for them. Perhaps someday I will codify them in a book.

Russians are raised with these superstitions so they have no need to consult a manual.

Here are some of them. It is by no means an exhaustive list:

1) You can’t whistle in the house or car, as they believe that you are whistling away your money.

At a dinner party at our house, a friend of mine started whistling. My wife silenced him immediately. She explained to him, “You can whistle in your own house, but you can’t whistle in mine. In my house, it’s my money you are whistling away.”

When she first came to America, she would see people standing at intersections holding signs. She asked me what they were doing. I told her they were asking for money. She asked me why. I told her that they had done entirely too much whistling in their house for their own good.

2) If you step on your spouse’s shoe by accident, you have to let the other person step on your shoe, or you will have an argument.

I never tested this superstition. It seemed easier to go along with the remedy than pay the price for violating it.

3) If you leave your house, you cannot go back inside for something you have forgotten, or your trip will result in ‘nothing good,’ as my wife says.

4) If you must go back in to get the forgotten item, you can try to mitigate the bad effects of returning by looking into the mirror at your own reflection for a moment before you leave again.

5) Never demonstrate another’s surgery or wound on your own body with your hand or other means as you are likely to visit that upon yourself.

In the few times I have done this, my wife has tried to remedy this by wiping away the spot where I made the imaginary incision with her hand, blowing on her hand to blow it away to the wind, and covering it with the sign of the cross.

6) Never give a Russian woman an even number of flowers. Even numbers are for the dead. Always give odd numbers. When you order a dozen, or two dozen roses, for her, ask them to throw in an extra one for good luck.

7) Never give yellow flowers to a Russian woman. It signifies infidelity and may mean that your relationship will not last.

8) Never give a watch as a gift to a Russian woman. Time is running out on your relationship.

9) Never give knives or handkerchiefs as gifts. I don’t know the reason for this one.

10) Never celebrate a birthday early. You are pushing your luck.

11) Don’t show your newborn baby to strangers until after forty days. They are waiting for their soul to arrive and they may take on another’s soul or energy during that time.

12) It’s best to cut your hair or nails during a full moon.

13) It’s considered bad luck to shave or cut your hair when a family member is in danger or bad health.

14) Whenever someone praises you or offers a positive comment, you knock on wood or imaginarily spit three times over your left shoulder so that you are not jinxed by the comment.

15) Do not shake hands or kiss over the threshold of a door. It forms a bridge that allows the devil or evil spirits from the outside to enter the house this way. When I have done this by mistake, my wife usually pushes me back outside or pulls me inside before greeting me with a kiss at the front door.

16) Before anyone takes a long trip, the whole family sits together silently for a few minutes before the traveler leaves.

17) The truly superstitious have been known to eat ‘lucky’ bus tickets, when the sum of the left three numbers equals the sum of the three numbers on the right.

18) Recently, while preparing to give my infant daughter a bath, the little tyke peed on me while I was taking her clothes off. My wife laughed and said that it was good news. It meant that I would live to dance at my daughter’s wedding!

This list is not exhaustive by any means. Superstitions vary by country and locale. There is a popular Russian television show that travels around the country exploring the unique superstitions of each particular town or village.

Many of the superstitions came from folk tales or fairy stories, Russian Orthodox tradition, or had peasant or agricultural roots. Most Russians are only one or two generations from the farm or village.

At any rate, be aware of the superstitions and try to show some respect for them whether or not you believe in them. Your Russian friends will appreciate it.



Avoiding Accidents at Intersections

Intersections can be dangerous for drivers and pedestrians alike. Traffic is often moving in several different directions at an intersection, which creates a high risk of a collision. Inattentive drivers, reckless drivers, high speeds, and low visibility can all lead to a serious accident at an intersection. Knowing the major risks of an intersection accident and how to avoid them can help to minimize your chance of a crash.

Intersection Safety Tips

There are some key safety tips that every driver should follow when approaching an intersection. No matter how safe an intersection may seem, a motorist should always keep the following in mind:

  • Always complete a full stop at a stop sign, and look for oncoming traffic from both sides before entering the intersection.
  • Check for cars twice before pulling into any intersection, even if you have the right of way. Sometimes drivers fail to see a stop sign and may pull out in front of you or run into you.
  • Watch out for vehicles that may run the red light. If you are first in line at a red light, when the light turns green be sure to check for traffic from both sides of the intersection before stepping on the gas.
  • When making a turn, look for pedestrians and bicyclists who may be in the crosswalk. When making a right turn, check your right side for pedestrian or bicycle traffic before completing your turn.
  • Use your turn signals appropriately. Without the proper signals, another driver may not be aware that you are turning and may pull out in front of you or hit you.

Following these key driver safety tips can help to reduce your risk of an accident at an intersection. Sometimes, however, accidents happen in an instant and are unavoidable. It is therefore important to have the proper car insurance to make sure that you are covered in case you are ever involved in a collision.



What Are 1-877 Numbers?

Want to know more about 877 numbers? The biggest misconception about 1-877 numbers is that if you call the same number with 1-800, you will get the same company. However this is not the case at all. Toll free numbers with different area codes are for totally separate businesses.

What is so confusing sometimes is when various companies choose the same vanity number, but with different prefixes including 866, 877, 800 or 888. You might think you are calling an attorney in your city, but if you dial the wrong prefix, you can get a totally different person across the country.

Like their 800 cousins, 877 numbers are completely free for the customer to dial. Along with that they provide many benefits to the end user, like ease of use, affordability and sense of professionalism.

Let’s back up a bit to find out more on these friendly digits. Toll free numbers actually date back as early as the 1960s, but their purpose was widely different than today’s. The toll free number was initially created as a way to cut back on using phone operators. The process was also created to offer customers more options rather than collect calling.

Along with that, they were normally controlled by the major phone companies. It wasn’t until the 1990s that the FCC helped consumers have more leverage in this area and keep their 800 numbers even if they changed phone services.

Later, 800 numbers associated with vanity phrases became widely popular. This newfound recognition fostered the need for more 800 prefixes. That’s when additional area codes like 877 (circa 1998) came on the scene.

As businesses and the global economy grew, the need for more area codes was never as urgent. What’s more, longer vanity characters were in demand too. The newer toll free prefixes such as 866 and 877 became highly sought for their wide-ranging and longer vanity selections.

Some of the digits in the area codes can be swapped for alphabetical letters, while standard 800 numbers cannot. For example, with an 877 or 866 area code you can have the vanity number 1-US-RENOVATIONS.

Vanity numbers even with the 1-877 toll free prefix appeal to marketers. First of all, they offer more vanity options, which become etched in consumers’ minds more so than numeric value phone numbers. Plus, like any toll free number, they are easier to call, have branding benefits, and can increase response rates.

A toll free number with an 877 area code is yours forever. Even if you move, you can still keep the same exact number. The same holds true for the other prefixes too. In the old days, a business that moved usually lost customers.

Even today, communicating your new information proves challenging. You can send out as many “we moved” reminders or emails and still get missed calls. E-mail can get snatched by spam filters and anything that even resembles “junk mail” in your regular mailbox usually gets tossed. So classically, people have viewed 800 numbers as an asset.

All in all, today an 877 number is like any other toll free line, but you can get more vanity choices.
