Vitae Coco Water

Vita Coco Coconut Water is procured directly from young green coconuts and contains naturally-occurring sugars in an amount that is easily absorbed by the body, as well as electrolyte minerals such as potassium and sodium. In addition, Vita Coco has 24 calories per 100ml serving, with no fat or cholesterol. It’s a great tasting, fat free and low calorie route to natural hydration that will see you feeling fresh and re-fuelled.

Vita Coco comes in a few flavours: Lemon, Pineapple , Peach and Mango.

A few days ago, I tried each of the flavours and must say it has a unique taste. I looked at the fat content – and there wasn’t any. But , remember, you must chill it – leave it in the fridge for an hour or 2 to enjoy the taste.

Impersonation on twitter

Recently I found a profile on twitter impersonating someone I know.

I thought that I would utilise the reporting method provided by twitter at the following link
click to report profile for impersonation.

But so far, I have done this process about 5 times and the imposter profile is still running and nothing has happened.

Your message could be PENDING

If you have not yet seen the following scenario, here it is.

I sent someone that was not on my facebook friends list a message. The message goes to the `other’ folder, a sub-folder of the inbox. It is a method to limit the amount of spam on the site, but it also causes the receiver never to read the message unless they make it a habit to check the inbox and other folder.

How safe is your CV ?

How safe is your cv ?
In these days of high unemployment, numerous dodgy advertisements pop up on the internet, so you should be really careful about the information you supply in your CVs.

You usually include a variety of confidential information – especially your full contact details (home address, cellphone number, identity number, and so on).

But you never know who sees it and who does not.

If you are responding to an advertisement on Gumtree, for example, you will notice that there is an upload attachment box.

The upload attachment box is used because the advertiser has hidden their email address and they do not want you to see it.

So when you reply to one of these advertisements you should write “To whom it may concern, I believe I am the ideal candidate for the advertised position. Please find attached my CV.”

But instead of attaching it, don’t.

If the person who placed the ad cares about hiring you, they will take the time to respond: “Dear Bob, Nothing was attached. Please resend.”

Now this helps in two ways: 1) It shows that the other side cares and
2) It shows the advertiser’s details (name@name_of_domain.com)
If the person is emailing you from a gmail address or free email address – ask them to send their website details and physical address.

Now I don’t say all those using free email addresses could be dodgy, but they should have alternative contact details, especially if the advertiser wants you to work for them – there should be a physical address to go to.

Hero Cat Saves Boy

I love animals.

But I love cats more…

A cat by the name of Tara, in Bakersfield, California, came to the rescue of a vicious dog attack.
The dog belonged to one of the neighbours randomly attacked a 4-year-old boy, Jeremy Triantafilo as he is playing on his bike in the driveway.

Jeremy had to have stiches, but the attack could have been far worse.

The neighbour’s dog had to be euthanised.

Fighting Gravity

Truly amazing performance by Fighting Gravity on America’s Got Talent …

Andrew De Leon

Growing up, Andrew De Leon was a big fan of Marilyn Manson and Rob Zombie. Listening to them was an escape for him, for he was an outsider. He felt alienated because he was not interested in athletics or other interests commonly followed. Andrew developed an interest in singing, but by his audition, he had never sung to anyone in public, including his family.
