Your Questions About Google Maps

September 15, 2012

Sandy asks…

How can I submit my business to google maps when my business is a service for people in their homes?

Usually when I search for a type of business google has many names and addresses of the businesses immediately and it’s included on google maps. But if my business consists of services primarily provided in a customer’s home (and I don’t have an office yet) can it still be listed? Without an address?

admin answers:

There’s a new feature in Google Places for businesses that allows you to list a “service area.” When you do this you can also exclude your address.

Not showing your address seems to lead to lower rankings, so I would definitely add it if you get an office sometime down the line, but this will at least get you listed for now.

Paul asks…

How I can set the scale in a google maps embedded in my site ?


I mean: using google maps wizard I set a map with pin points of my interest. Following rules, I embedded the map in my site, but when I see it, I can’t see in proper scale: I see my entire country or a little slice and I have to zoom in and out.

So the question.

There’s a way I can set the right scale and fix it in my embedded google map wizard created ?

Thanks in advance.

How can I collate a land map with Google Maps satellite view?

I’m considering investing in a tract of property, and the boundaries and borders of this property are displayed on the land companies website. It is shaded and graphed out well, but the over-all map leaves a lot to the imagination. It doesn’t show neighboring property or anything.

Is there any way that I can collate the shaded part of the land map I’m considering investing in, with Google Maps satellite view? Any information would be greatly appreciated.

admin answers:

I did this once, by stitching screen captures of google maps section in a photo editing program like Photoshop. When you have the google map area displayed on screen, hold down the key ALT and press key “Print Screen”, this will copy the content of your screen into a memory buffer. In your photo editing program, make a new blank photo file then press Ctrl-V or “File -> Paste” in the menu, and your “screenshot” will be pasted into the the new file. Make sure your new blank file resolution matches your screen resolution. To stitch other screenshot into the same file, you will have to resize the resolution of your file to double the original file, or make that file at the required resolution in the first place.

For example: if you have your screen resolution at 1024×786, make your blank file at 1024×1572 if you want to stitch two screen shots vertically, and 2048×786 if you do it side by side. After that you would want to clean up the image by cropping out unwanted areas, flatting it in case of Photoshop and save it in JPEG format to save disk space.

Robert asks…

Is Google Scholar a right scholar to refer to when working on my University essays?

admin answers:

Google Scholar is just a search engine for journals and theses. You would get the same results from the main Google search, but most likely buried in the middle of other, non-peer-reviewed articles.

It’s a great way to look up articles, but they may not all be public domain. You may have more luck with the journal databases purchased by your school’s library.

Your Questions About Eye Exercises For Lazy Eye

May 13, 2012

Mark asks…

How hard is it to train a Standardbred?

I’m going to be getting my first horse in a couple months. I have ridden for nearly 7 years and people say I’m a naturally talented rider. I’ve also retrained an Arab mare (former costume class horse, all she knew how to do was gallop around being pretty) and helped exercise a one-eyed Arab mare after a big surgery that made her unrideable for a year.
At first, I wanted to buy a easygoing, lazy, push-button horse, but after reading about how many off-track racehorses are sent to slaughter every year, I decided I wanted an off-track racehorse. There are only harness racehorses in my area, so I would have to get a Standardbred.
My question is,
how hard is it to train a Standardbred to be ridden and would it make a good first horse for me?
I would really like to save a horse’s life.
Thanks! =)

admin answers:

It always depends on the horse, but generally it is very easy to retrain a STB to be ridden. Most of the ground work is complete and generally you won’t have problems trailering, clipping, bathing, etc.

My current STB is so laid back I hopped on him the first day we had him and rode him around the pasture. I was planning on taking it slow, but he kept falling asleep when I saddled him and didn’t even flinch when I put weight in the stirrup so just hopped up and went. In 10 years of riding him he has never bucked, reared, bolted, or raced off and most of that time he has been ridden by a beginner. Every STB I’ve retrained has been the same and I’ve been on them in less then a week. I know a lady that took her STB to an endurance ride (and won it) less then a week after they took her off the track. The STB I’ve gotten my hands on came from my parents or family friends so I know those horses were with excellent trainers and never abused. If your horse was abused then you may have more issues.

A plus is that most STB don’t associate being ridden with racing. My current STB is laid back, calm, and can be ridden by a complete beginner, but you hook him up to a cart and he can get hot and takes an experienced driver.

There are some gotcha’s. STB race hollow backed, head up high, and on a tight rein as they often lean into the reins. If you want your horse to canter and balance himself look at getting dressage lessons. It will take some time for him to build topline muscle that will allow him to collect so don’t expect to much too soon.

Don’t fall into the trap of trying to get your horse to canter by pushing him as fast as possible so he “breaks” gait. When you do this your horse will put his head up high and hollow his back which is exactly what you don’t want. Dressage lessons will really help you get over this and will prep your STB for whatever else you end up wanting to do with him.

If you haven’t checked out New Vocations I recommend you do.


They generally are really helpful in placing horses and if you are in an area they don’t have any horses right now they may still be able to hook you up with a horse.

Personally I think STB make great first horses and that is why I chose an OTSTB to be the first horse for my husband. My husband who maybe had 3 rides under his belt before we got him and the STB has been very patient and forgiving. I can’t imagine a better first horse.

One other thing because the STB have a lot of miles on them and tend to race a lot more then other breeds get a vet check (I’ve seen vet checked sound STB on New Vocations that had over 200 races under their belts). You don’t want to find an amazing horse and get attached to find out he isn’t sound for what you want.

Good luck and I hope you find the right horse.

im seeing things out of the corner of my eyes and hearing things?

i dont think this is a mental illness i think that my mind is playing tricks on me because my life isnt going very good right now i’m out of shape, i dont leave the house almost ever the only time i leave is when i go to me GED prep classes and my sleeping schedule is really messed up so i’ve realized i need to get out of the house more im so paranoid of everything i see in the corner of my eyes for example if i see movement in anyway in the corner of my eye i freak out and look to see if im seeing things but it will just end up being my shadow and i started hearing things also like police sirens, music like my brothers ringtone for his phone is a song by bruno mars and sometimes i swear ill hear it ringing and i’ll start looking for it but its no where to be found i live in colorado and its snowing really bad right now im looking for a job but getting no luck yet dont really have any friends anymore do any of you have any suggestions what i can do to get out of this house? and is this normal that im hearing and seeing things? i read a recent post where i guy was seeing/hearing things and someone answered saying to exercise, sleep right, eat right, and get out of the house im scared im going to go schizophrenic i really want to get a breath of fresh air and leave this house but i cannot dedicate myself to it ive always been the lazy one in my family who never really wants to do anything do you guys have any ideas to get me to dedicate myself to doing something? i know in the end im the only one who can help myself but i really need a push forward and my mom isnt that push for me because she lets me do whatever i want which i wish she was different because if i wouldve got forced to do stuff in my life i wouldn’t be at this point right now where the only thing i wanna do is stay home and stare at a comp screen. anyway give me your thoughts please

admin answers:

This sounds a little worrying. I think that previous advice, of getting out of the house, eating a bit better and exercising will REALLY help. And maybe seeing a doctor.

Exercise will help you with sleeping because you will actually be tired, and it just makes you feel more relaxed and better in general. I really suggest trying that. It’s a bit hard because it is snowing….and I’m not too familiar with the weather in Colorado, but try and get outside for a walk at least every second day. You can make it to go and do something you like if you aren’t motivated. For example, you could walk to a store and buy something you like, like a magazine. If there isn’t anything like that in walking distance, you could drive, but park furthur away to get some walking in.

If that isn’t possible, you could always start smaller…you live anywhere close to the movies? An internet cafe? Even hanging out at those kinds of places a couple of times a week might help you to get out of the house. Maybe even meet some people.

You kinda sound like you need something to do with your days…what about volunteering somewhere? They always need people, and you can meet people! Its good to have something scheduled because it is a reason to go out, and a reason to wake up in the morning.

Also getting sleeping back on track will help. Don’t have any caffiene, and not too much sugar in the few hours before bed. Don’t play on your computer for at least an hour before you plan to go to sleep…things like computer games and tv and movies activate the brain, they wake you up. Try reading instead, or listening to calm music – it naturally winds your brain down (edit: reading on a book, not a screen).

If you aren’t motivated then it’s hard and nothing I can say will help much, but think of it this way: you sound like you already know that the way you are living now is not good for you. I’re hearing things…kinda worrying. You should probably speakl to a doctor as well as trying the above :)

Susan asks…

Help! my guinea pig is sick!?

I have two guinea pigs, Boo and Twix. Boo was fine for a while, until she showed signs of a lice. I took her to the vet and she was treated for lice and it is gone now. Next, Boo showed signs of a fungal skin disease, and she is in the process of getting medicine shampoo for it. Now, Boo has red eyes, and there looks to be like she has “fatty eye,” but wouldn’t fatty eye be harmless? She looks like her eyes really bother her, and there is crust on her eyes ALL the time! I am scared because she isn’t wheeking when she gets her food anymore, and she seems lazy around her cage (which is pretty big). Boo will be going to the vet asap. But I just want to have some idea what is going on with her. And I have a few ideas: URI, or a regular eye infection.

Also, I would like to know if I am doing anything wrong while I take care of Boo/Twix because it seems like Boo always gets sick.
-She has a big C&C 2by4
-I spot clean her cage every single day
-She has a friend that she loves(Twix)
-She always has hay and pellets
- I feed her fresh fruits and veggies every day (only veggies that are ok for g-pigs)
-She has floor time at least 3 times a week
-Her water bottle is always full and it doesn’t have any vitamin c “juice” in it
-I don’t put her in any harmful situations (ex. exercise balls)
-I usually bath her every 6-8 weeks with guinea pig shampoo (except she has that infection so it is painful to bath her until her medicine comes)
-Her nails are always trimmed

I don’t know what else I can do! She always has something wrong with her!
Please help.

admin answers:

It sounds as though your are doing every thing correctly, just in case you are not I will give you guide lines to follow so you can see if there is any thing wrong at all OK. Feed your guinea pigs as follows, this is for one guinea pig

Unlimited guinea pig pellets that are 18% protein and have Vitamin C with no nuts, seeds or other colored stuff in them

Unlimited hay, timothy, orchard grass or any goo grass hay you can find at your local Feed and Seed store, that is where your local farmers shop and every thing is much fresher and at least 1 1/10th of what you would pay for them at a pet store.

1/2 to 1 cup of dark green leafy veggies daily such as kale (the best) romaine lettuce, swiss chard, dandelion greens, mustard greens, parsley, red and green bell peppers, a mix of these daily with the pellets provide all the Vitamin c they need.

Fruit should be fed every 3 days only as a treat as it is to high in sugar to be healthy for your guinea pigs also it is high in acid so if fed daily it will cause sores in the guinea pigs mouth.

Change the water daily to assure it is drinking ample water.

Actually you should not be bathing them, that can cause problems for their skin and if the shampoo were to get into the eye it could cause issues there. It can also cause an URI. Guinea pigs make a white milky fluid in their eyes that they work through their fur with their front paws, it is their natural conditioner. When you bathe them you wash this out and risk harming their tender skin. Only bathe them when them have been ill and messed up their fur. If their cages are properly cleaned there is not need to bathe them. One of the biggest errors many people make is not putting enough bedding in the cages so it is not absorbent enough. They get worried about the cost, however, if the purchase pine shavings at the Feed and Seed store they can get a 12 cubic foot bag for only $10.00, I have to cages that are huge and one bag lasts me 2 1/2 months as I only have to throw out 1/2 of the bedding that is wet, the other half is just fine and I put in on the bottom of the cage with 3″ of new bedding on top of it. Bathing can also just be stressful for some guinea pigs and the stress alone will cause them to get an URI.

Your little tyke does sound like she may have an URI, the crusty eye, not eating, not moving about are all signs of URI but the red eye does not necessarily go with it so she may have a couple of things going on.

Some times we just for no reason get a guinea pig that has a weak immune system. I have that with my little Suzzi, she was a rescue, she and her sister had mites so bad at 5 weeks old they had lost all their fur except a bit on their heads, they were locked in a cold unlit bathroom in a 12″ X 12″ box and they had been treated with Ivermectiom for horses and she was given to much and it has really affected her little life. The poor little thing is so dumb, she has no reasoning ability, poor little thing, but she is sweet. I was able to re-home her sister but I lovingly had to keep her due to her medical problems and she is always at the vets.I do know how you feel, I know I take perfect care of her but there are times I just think I should be able to stop her form getting sick, I know she suffers when she is sick and I don’t like to see her suffer.She gets consent sinus infections.

Good luck, hope every thing works out well

Your Questions About Improve Vision Naturally

December 1, 2011

Daniel asks…

how to improve eyesight naturally?

hey, im around 15-16 years old now and i want to be a rescue swimmer. I think my chances are better with 20-20 vision… last time i was at the doctors i had 20-10… now i think im a level below that if not farther. is their any techenique to improve my vision…? thanks,

admin answers:

There’s really not much a person can do to improve their eye sight once it’s been damaged. If there were, you wouldn’t see so many people with contacts and glasses. You can still be a rescue swimmer — you just need to make sure that if you have contacts, you don’t wear them while in the water. Also, your vision isn’t too bad, so everything won’t be a complete blur once you get in the water, and you should still be able to do your job well.

Mandy asks…

How can you recover vision NATURALLY?

Does anyone know how you can recover vision naturally? I am a 13 year old boy and I CAN’T get surgery. I’m too young, the surgery is too expensive, and it’s not permanent and could cause side effects. Right now my vision is 300/350 and I really want to improve it. I can’t go anywhere without my glasses! Does anyone know how? Please tell me if you know!
I don’t really know the exact acuity of my vision or how it’s measured. Sorry if I confused you. All I know is that everything is harder to see from the distance and I can’t recognize letters or numbers clearly unless they are right in front of my face. If I am using the computer I can’t recognize the letters unless I am about a foot away or closer to the screen.

Jenny asks…

Can you correct your vision without surgery?

I have to wear contact lenses (or glasses) in order to see clearly, and I really wish I didn’t have to. I have -2.25 vision in my left eye and -2.75 in my right, and I’m only 14 years old. I’ve been wearing glasses or contacts (I have both) since the 5th grade, and I want to correct my vision before I turn 18, and this isn’t possible with surgery because I’m too young and because it’s expensive as shit. I’ve read in a few places that by getting a lot of certain vitamins and taking good care of your eyes can eventually improve your vision, naturally. Is this true? If it is, can it completely correct your vision or just slightly improve it? If it can completely correct your vision, how long does it take?

admin answers:

The so called easy ways of correcting vision like glasses and contacts can sure end up being a hassle. Glasses are always finding a way to get dirty, and contacts are a pain. They dry out on your eye and aren’t very sanitary, not to mention if you lose one it’s basically impossible to find it. But there is a different way to correct your vision. And no it’s not surgery. LASIK surgery is not the way to go. It is way too expensive and can have very bad consequences. The best way is simply made up of two different methods. And by following these methods you will correct your vision forever. No more trips to the optometrist and no more buying prescription eye glasses and contacts.

The first method is all about sleep. You have to allow your eyes to rest. Without rest you’re putting a big strain on your eyes. And in return only makes your eyesight worse. You will need to have around seven to eight hours of good steady sleep each night. That’s about the normal amount to fully rest your eyes from a day’s work. And as your eyes rest they very slowly start to correct themselves. Your eyelids massage your eyes as they are closed and massaging will help correct your vision.

Now the second method is all about learning how to work your eyes to their full potential. And you will do this by performing certain exercises on each eye every day. These exercises include blinking really fast then closing your eyes tight. As you keep doing this you will be allowing more circulation around your eyes which is critical for vision. So by following these simple methods you will be on your way to naturally correcting your vision in no time.

You’re not restricted to having to wear prescription eyewear or paying for LASIK eye surgery to improve your vision. There is a natural way to improve your eyesight within a few weeks. If you are tired of having to worry about glasses or contact lenses and you’re worried about the risks of surgery, there is an effective, natural way to get better vision.

If you’re tired of the cost of your glasses or contacts and you just want to have the freedom that better vision affords you, it can be done naturally. You can see better just a few weeks from now. People just like you have improved their vision through the use of eye exercises. It’s your turn now to see better.

How to Improve Your Eyesight Without Glasses

How to Improve Your Eyesight Without Glasses


There are a number of different things that you can do to help improve your eyesight without glasses. For many people, their eyesight is excellent until the time they start school, and by the time they are in their teens and as a young adult, their visions have worsened. Vision problems are very common in today’s society. Your eyes are like any other organ in your body – if it becomes stressed and over strained, it ability to see are diminished

I’m sure if you spend a lot of your time reading, or staring at a computer screen, you’ve no doubt experienced times where after a long and stressful periods of focusing on reading or fixating on the computer screen that you find your eyes are tired and that your eyesight seems to be a bit worse than normal. After some rest and relaxation, you’ll eventually find that your eyesight is back to normal. This is a rather common thing that many people will experience.


During times like these, you need take a little time off, just a few minutes, to relax and rest your eyes. Take your focus and eyesight off from your work, and look outside your window far off into the distance. You should also spend several minutes to do some eye exercises such as palming, eye rotation exercises, and eye focus exercises. These all work to help relief stress and strain on your eyes.

While correct lenses such as eyeglasses and contact lenses help you see better, they never actually help you improve your natural eyesight. Most people start off with just slight degrees of eye vision problems, but as they rely on their glasses and contact to help them see, they never really correct the problems that caused them to have bad eyesight in the first place. For a normal person, your eyesight can fluctuate from day to day, even if you might not notice it. If you’re in good health, in a good mood, and are relaxed, you might find that you can see slightly better than normal. On the other hand, if you are stressed out, in poor health you’ll probably notice that your vision is slightly worse than normal.

You can help improve your eye health by regularly relaxing your eyes. Your eys are made up of tiny internal and external muscles, and these muscles help move your eyes, help you focus, and can control the shape of your eye. The key to improve eyesight and eye health is relaxation. Take a little time out of your busy workday and work on relaxing your eyes and your eye muscles.

Learn how you can naturally improve your eyesight, and begin to see better.
