Atlas Model Trains

Much like other companies in the hobby train industry the story of Atlas model trains is a story of vision, entrepreneurship, and tough work, combined with a passion for a hobby that resulted in a company that grew bigger than what anyone would have imagined at the foundation.

The beginning of Atlas Model Model Trains goes back to the first decades of the 20th century, when Stephan Schaffan Sr. founded what would become Atlas Model Trains. Back then, it was a tool company not a model train business and Stephan Schaffan Sr. was so undermanned that he had his son Stephan Schaffan Jr. come and help him with the business.

Stephan Schaffan Jr. wasnt happy with the money that he earned at his dads business (if he earned anything at all). He was a young and inventive man who liked machinery. He would go after work and built model airplanes at his house. There was a local airplane model shop where he lived, and he would visit it frequently. He used to annoy the owner by asking for a side work that he could do to earn some extra money, to which the owner would always refuse.

However, one day, the owner of the store grew so tired of Stephan Jr.s requests that he gave him some old railroads and model trains that he didnt want to use any longer, in the hopes that Stephan would get away and leave him alone.

Little did he know that these old railway tracks and models that he discarded so easily would ultimately become what today is known as Atlas Trains.

Stephan Jr. went back home and worked on those trains. Being an inventive and intelligent young man, he designed a switch set, which would become the staple of Atlas Model Trains, and that allowed the user to start and stop the trains by controlling the voltage on the tracks.

Later on, Stephan Jr. invented more products which made the company grow even more, while his fathers business started to appear small in comparison. Somewhere along the line, the original name was dropped and the company took the name of Atlas Model Railroad, even though most people know it by the name Atlas Trains.

Now with Atlas Model Trains officially presented, Stephan invented quite a few devices that saved work for the folks who enjoyed the model train hobby. For example, he invented pre-assembles tracks, that saved his customers the trouble of assembling it themselves. In general his inventions made track assembling much easier.

Today, Atlas Model Trains is one of the major names in the industry. Although Stephen Jr. is no longer alive, Atlas Model Trains and his legacy made model trains a much more easily reached hobby for train lovers.

Innovation Of Transportation

Can you imagine a world without transportation? Maybe pollution wont be a problem. Theres no traffic, no sky-high gas prices on the market and maybe the world would just be simple. We really cant imagine a world without it. Transportation means movement of goods and even the people from one place to another. This migration is done for many reasons like employment, social gatherings and a lot of other purposes.

Transportation has a lot of advantages and of course disadvantages. Thats just how it is in the world. But rather than focusing on the negative, lets look at the advantages of transportation and think about life without transportation.

Different kinds of transportation vehicles include a simple engine made of cheap material up to the most expensive ones. People are very creative when it comes to their needs. Imagine, a man was able to go to the moon because of their transportation! We can fly across the country because we have airplanes. Different transportation for land, sky, even in the water are now profitable and give convenience to the people.

We are now in the 21st century that imagination is turning to reality when it comes to transportation. Transportation plays a vital role in our society in giving convenience in our daily life from work, school, and home. A lot of transportation services are now available around the globe. People from all walks of life use these services in order to survive from everyday life. Different people have different transportation needs like public vehicles or private class vehicle.

How to Train Your Voice to Be More Charismatic

There is an interesting article in the Wall Street Journal, by the same title, about the charismatic influence your voice can have in your professional life. Having analyzed the voices of leaders in countries such as Brazil, France, and Italy, scientists have found that those who exhibited charisma -use their voices to dominate, rouse and influence a large audience.-

By analyzing the voice and speech patterns of various political leaders and CEOs, they discovered that there were two areas which strongly influenced how these speakers were perceived by audiences. Both the depth of the voice as well as the ability to be expressive were the two most common characteristics of charismatic leaders.

As an example, they discovered that -CEOs with lower-pitched voices typically manage larger firms, make more money and last longer on the job than higher-pitched peers, studies at Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business have found.-

The scientists also found that speaking with expression – which means varying your pitch throughout your delivery is as important as the quality of your sound. I refer to this as color – the life, the emotion, and the animation you express by means of your vocal variety, facial expression and body language.

While none of this information was new to me, it is interesting that they seemed surprised by their findings. Let me ask you. Would you prefer to listen to a deep, resonant voice or one which is high-pitched, squawky, or shrill?

The title of the article, however, was misleading because they did not discuss how to train your voice to be more charismatic. So I will. There are two things you must do to improve your voice and speech patterns: 1.Use your chest cavity to power and amplify your voice. Most people do not use their chest as a vocal resonator, instead relying on their throat, voice box, mouth and nasal cavities to do all the work.

2.Speak with emotion if your voice is a monotone. Should this apply to you, you must first give yourself permission for your emotions to be heard and seen. A flat or boring voice does not sell. While this study only dealt with the male voice, the results they found are also true for the female voice. The most effective female broadcasters, for example, have voices which are deeper in pitch and warmer in quality than the average female voice. They sound authoritative; they sound professional; and, given the right tone, they can sound very alluring.

The Voice Lady Nancy Daniels offers private, corporate and group workshops in voice and presentation skills as well as Voicing It!, the only video training program on voice improvement. If you would like to see a dramatic ‘before & after’ clip, visit Nancy’s Voice Training Website and watch Craig’s video in the center of the page.

Yonex Badminton Shuttlecock And Yonex Nylon Shuttlecock Online

Like any other sporting equipment, shuttles too have evolved over the years. While the traditional shuttlecocks consist of 16 feathers, the more modern ones are made from plastic or nylon. Shuttles are graded according to their speed, if you are an expert you can use a standard speed shuttle and play from baseline to baseline. Conversely, if you are a beginner you can use faster shuttles till you build the necessary skill and power in the strokes. Weather and varying temperatures can affect your game, as these directly impact the flight of a shuttle. When it is cold the shuttle will move slower, and when temperatures are higher it will move faster.

Super Saver – Yonex Mavis 370 Badminton Nylon Shuttlecock

Feathered shuttles vs Synthetic shuttles

One of the first factors that are taken into consideration is price. Feathered shuttles tend to be more expensive than the nylon shuttlecock, the latter is preferred because it is far more durable, and lasts through more matches with minimal impairment.

Professional players usually stick to the feathered shuttles as it offers a better feel on impact with the racket string bed, and gives them better control of the shots. Novice players and those who play the game on a recreational level prefer the plastic ones.

In terms of performance, plastic shuttles fly slowly during initial impact, but take time to slow down when descending, which means that you cannot really a straight drop get falling. On the other hand, feathered shuttles fly fast on initial impact and slow down faster as they drop.

How To Crate Train A Dog

Need help crate training your dog? Youre not on your own. Millions of pet owners every year in the country are learning to crate train their dog. Crate training helps reduce anxiety, destructive behaviour, and house training

The Value of a Crate to a Dog

Most dogs love having a crate as a space that is theirs alone. It is safe and easy for your dog, and very enjoyable.
How to Crate Train a Dog

Puppies are easier to crate train as they are not used to sleeping wherever they want and have less reason to be upset about sleeping in the crate.

You should place the crate in a room where the family is often. During the night it is a good idea to bring the crate into your bedroom to help your dog feel safer. When your dog is more comfortable in their crate you can start to leave his crate in just one room.

The crate should be clean, and big enough for him to move around, but not big enough for him to make a mess. Make sure there is always food and water, room for him to sleep comfortably, and a something to keep him well entertained.

Try your best not to give in to your dog if he whines. Dont pay attention to him or remove him from the crate. If you do he will only associate the whining with getting attention. Only respond after he has quieted down.

When you are first starting to train him, only leave him in the crate for short periods of time. Gradually begin to leave him in his crate for longer periods of time.

Your dog will not bark too much or get destructive if you have rained him properly. It will be easier to leave him alone for periods of time.
