Is Drinking a Pot of Coffee Yourself Bad?

Golden lane - Prague

As a coffee lover myself, I was hesitant to begin my research about the adverse affects of coffee. Though I was happy to learn that my two cups every morning are only considered a modest amount of coffee; a moderate amount would be three cups. However, if you are consuming a pot of coffee a day, we are talking about nearly ten cups of coffee. So, yes drinking a pot of coffee by yourself is bad. Here’s why:

The caffeine in coffee is a central nervous system stimulant. While it can increase alertness, reduce fatigue, improve mood, enhance reaction time, and improve performance, consuming too much can do more harm than good. The unpleasant side effects of a caffeine overdose include:

  • Jitters and trembling
  • Difficulties falling and staying asleep at night
  • Nervousness, dizziness; especially profound in those with panic or anxiety
  • Stomach discomfort and digestive upset
  • Extreme fatigue upon waking in the morning

Most likely, you did not wake up one day and drink a whole pot of coffee yourself. As your coffee habit took hold so did your body’s dependence on it, resulting in nothing short of an addiction. Caffeine mimics your body’s natural neurotransmitters which are responsible for the transmission of nerve impulses. Too much caffeine sends your nervous system into overdrive and your body responds by reducing its own production of neurotransmitters. The result is that your brain and nerves now depend on this external neurotransmitter source just to function normally.

Another theory suggests that caffeine becomes habit forming when your body crashes after its temporary heightened state of awareness and alertness. You may end up feeling more sluggish or fatigued than you did before you starting drinking your coffee, causing you to go back for more; and the cycle continues.

Ironically, your friend who enjoys one or two cups of coffee a day reaps the same benefits from coffee as your full pot provides you. Your body has built up a tolerance so you can handle more but you also require more. The good news is that with some work, you can cut back on your consumption. When you do, the moderate amount of three cups a day will satisfy you completely and your body will once again operate properly under its own steam.

Famous Bearded Collies in the Movies and TV

I want to be...

While Bearded Collies are known for their roles as show and working dogs, the breed has also been seen in television, movies and catalogs. Some of the credits which can be attributed to the breed include the Shaggy Dog, a 2006 comedy from Walt Disney featuring Tim Allen. Agent Cody Banks is a 2001 film which shows Cody walking through a scene with a Bearded Collie. In September 2001, in an issue of a Lands End catalog a Bearded Collie was featured. Other onscreen credits include Please Don’t Eat the Daisies, which was a television show from the 1960’s; the co-star was a Bearded Collie. Tiger, the dog from the Brady Bunch was also thought to be a Bearded Collie as well.

Most people are used to viewing a German Shepherd and traditional Collies on television and in movies, however, we often forget about the Bearded Collie. We just may have believed the shaggy, lovable dogs were picked because of how they looked. Perhaps on the other hand the breed was chosen because of their dependable nature and natural performing ability. Nobody can deny the lovability of the sweet shaggy dogs that played in some of the most memorable TV and movie roles. Whether in a working capacity or as a family pet, a Bearded Collie is a gentle, sweet natured dog that gets along well with children and other animals.

The gentility of the breed has made the dog a popular choice for both movies and other media outlets. It is obvious by the dog’s appearance that they are quite able to take commands well and perform on cue. In spite of the breed being traced to working origins, the dog seems to possess a natural ability to perform at will when necessary. Not only are Bearded Collies great show dogs, they are also exceptional in the capacity of working dog, family pet, or when used in an acting role.

With past experience being favorable for the Collie, we should expect to see more of these fluffy, even-tempered dogs in future media productions. The dog is a quick study and learns commands easily, making them ideally suited to media exposure on TV or in movies. We don’t often think of the dog when we see them on TV or in the movies, but when a producer is seeking a perfect dog for a television show or movie role, they need look no further than a Bearded Collie.

Before one considers bringing a Collie into their home they should realize the breed requires a regular grooming commitment which must be followed diligently. With a coat of long, shaggy hair, a Collie can track in all sorts of mud, leaves, grass and other debris into the home. The dog also has strict exercise requirements and needs the opportunity to burn off extra energy on a regular basis. When thinking about all the breeds to have as a family pet however, a Bearded Collie is a devoted, loving companion that is sure to adapt well into the role of happy pet with relative ease.

What Makes a Writer a Writer?

01:52 a.m. Last view of Stykkishólmur before close my eyes... =O)

An interesting discussion on LinkedIn is swirling around the topic of when a writer can call themselves a writer .. As I've watched the discussion unfold, some interesting ideas have cropped up. They are worth considering.

A writer is someone who has been published offline.

Considering that a large segment of the writing work available is almost exclusively online today, this definition just can not hold true. While it is almost guaranteed that someone who has broken into hard print is a very good writer, it does not preclude someone who has never had their work published in traditional media from being considered a writer.

A writer is someone who knows their grammar, punctuation rules and how to spell things correctly.

I'm not prepared to say this is true because I know that publishers, magazines and newspapers all hire copy editors for one very good reason. Not every writer on the team has good spelling skills. No writer's punctuation skills are perfect. And everyone has certain words they almost always type incorrectly. I've been a copy editor. It's always easier to see others mistakes.

For me, I have to watch dropping the "r" on your, adding a "d" in college and several other persistent misspellings. There are words I consistently add extra letters to and others I drop letters from almost every time I type them. And most of the time, they are words, so spell check does not catch them.

At the same time, if a writer can not tell the difference between when to use your and you're or its and it's, it will be an obstacle to achieving a higher pays scale. Excellence in every aspect of writing is essential if you want to be taken seriously.

A writer is a professional who makes a consistent income from writing.

This can be true. The definition of consistent may vary. I know that I began by approaching only a few hundred dollars a month from writing work. I had some months where I had no income from that source. At the same time, I was consistently seeking work. As a writing professional I took action.

  • I actively built my portfolio.
  • I built a free website on Office Live.
  • I focused on bridging the gap from when I studied journalism to what the market demands of writers today.
  • I applied every piece of knowledge I gained into strengthening my ability to write compelling materials.

To put the title "writer" on a resume, suggest you need to be more than someone who has started their own blog. Despite the fact that I have a ghostwriting tips blog, it is not this blog that makes me a writer. It's the fact that people read this blog and actually benefit from it that supports my claim that I am a writer.

A writer is someone who can explain different topics in language that the average person can understand.

This truly is a skill that not everyone possesses. In some ways, every writer needs to have a teacher's heart, the ability to break things down into understandable packages. Some writers are gifted with the ability to reach very young minds. That's why there are writers of children's books. Other writers just can not get down to that level, yet remain effective writers for a different audience.

A writer is more than someone who starts their own blog.

There are good blogs and so-so blogs. To truly claim to be a writer, the blog can not be riddled with grammar errors. A few spelling and punctuation errors are forgivable, especially as most blog writers can not afford a separate set of eyes to edit their work.

A writer is someone who crafts words to influence others.

It's the power to dig into the meaning of words and craft them as you have done that signifies a writer. The fact that you can express your arguments succinctly using words in their written form defines that you are a writer. Maybe that is the definition we should be holding to here. "A writer is someone who can write with words so effectively they can influence others whether they do it for pay or not."

It's not whether your work appears on the eviscerated remnants of a tree or on the electronic representation of a page that makes you a writer. It's whether your words move and / or motivate. A novelist may move through the creation of characters and plots. A web writer may motivate to action by carefully chosen words.

Both are writers. Both use their power over words to create an experience in the mind. That experience would not be there without the writer's ability to craft words.

What makes a writer a writer? We'll probably never be able to agree on a single definition. Too may people would disagree with the writer's version of the artist's definition, "A writer is a writer because he / she writes."

How To Gain Readers' Attention

My Favorite Pen

An article only serves its purpose when it appeals the user to click on the link during search and read it completely. It attains high value only when it routes good visitors', liked by readers, and has numerous organic comments. Everyone wants to write a high value article but only a few gets success. Let us inform you the secrets of successful content writing for good money generation. We have illustrated below the most essential techniques to write a quality and result-oriented article.

Select a Hot Topic

Write what is famous and is in hot trends. For example, an article on 'Wireless Network Storage Devices' will get more attention than one on 'Punch Cards'. You can make use of Google Trends and Google Alerts to know the latest topics. You can also write on the National or International Controversy with few lines what an end user can do.

Do your homework

Complete your homework before writing an article. Conduct an in-depth research on the selected topic and create a strategy how you will write your article. You can also take help of publishing media such as newspaper, magazines, etc. In addition, refer to the famous blog sites like CNET, EzineArticles, Squidoo, Infobarrel, Helium etc. to collect more information on your topic.

Attractive Title & First Paragraph

Only title is important to bring the user to your article page. Therefore, you have to work hard upon it. Most of the visitors just read important points like first paragraph, bulleted / numbered items, and last paragraph. We suggest you to write an eye-sticky first introductory paragraph.

Follow Modular Approach

Divide your articles into sections and give a proper heading to each section. Make sure that each section should serve a purpose and must have the content in a proper flow. Please do not break the flow when a reader switches from one section to another. If each section is self-narrative then there are good opportunities that reader will stick to your article until it finishes and revisits your website for more such articles. Include headings, sub-headings, Note, footnotes, etc. wherever necessary. You can also give number to the section headings and sub-headings.

Use bullets and numberings to highlight the main points. This will break up the clumsy text and grab reader's attention. The readers give more preference to the bullet / numbered items instead of big paragraphs. You can also cite the facts and figures in bullets.

Be Personal with the Reader

Have you ever visited a Mall or a Retail Showroom nearby? You make purchases only in two situations – when you need a specific product or services, and / or when you are impressed with it. Will you be impressed with a product or service if no one is there to help you and guide why you should buy this? The same thing you have to illustrate in your article.

Be personal with your reader and explain specifically for which he / she is looking. Write your article like you are talking to the reader. Make use of words like "you", "they" etc. while writing. This will make the reader a center point of your article and let him to read your article.

How to write?

Write from the readers' point of view and not according to the search engine. If your article is more readable then search engines will consider it automatically. Keep following points in mind while writing:

  • Write original and relevant content on your own.
  • Be specific and clear in your writing. Remember – to be or not to be. Say your observations directly and do not leave the reader in a state of confusion. Make sure that your article is fulfilling the promise made in the title and introductory paragraph.
  • An image is much better than thousandsands words. Insert relevant images in your content.
  • Use statistics, testimonials, experts' advice, and a lot of credibility in your article. Try to be authoritative.
  • Check your content for spelling and grammatical errors in a good Word processor like Word, Open Office Writer, and Works etc.
  • Check your written content at a plagiarism-checking website like plagiarism.org, plagium.com, and Copyscape.

Formatting

Select an appealing font and good font size of your normal text, sub-headings and headings. You can also use h1, p, h2, span, etc., tags to be browser-specific. Italicize your message and bold the specific words to gain the readers' attention.

Finishing Touch

You must know how to finish your article without breaking the flow irrespective of the word limit. The experts in writing always suggest including PS (Post Script) in the end of article. You can write three to four lines briefing your article and summarizing it in the PS section.

The above tips will help you to write an effective article to have better, gain readers' attention and to have more comments.

PS

You should give an attractive title, eye-sticky first paragraph, and use personal tone to capture the readers' attention. Make use of personal verbiage and conversational words to make the reader a center point of your article. Use proper formatting topics like italics, bold, strikethrough, and other fonts to focus your message.
