Photoshop Buttons – How to Create a Green Glass Button

In Photoshop you can create many different types of glass buttons and many different colors. There are many different styles of glass buttons. In this tutorial I will show you how to create another style Glass Button and we will make this one green. I will write the first part of this tutorial for beginners and the second part for the advance. So let’s begin.

How to Create Green Glass Buttons in Photoshop for Beginners

Open your Photoshop program and let it load. Now you will need to create a new canvas. Go to the top of your Photoshop window and click File  gt; New to create a new canvas. Create you canvas about 300 pixels by 300 pixels and set your background to white. Then click OK. Now you should see your new canvas in your photoshop for mac window.

Now you will need to draw your button. Select the Rounded Rectangle Tool from your toolbar. Draw your button on your canvas. You can make your button any size that you want. Don’t worry about the extra room, you can crop your button when you are finished.

Now you will need to Rasterize your Layer. If you do not see your Layers Panel then press F7 on your keyboard to bring it up. You will see two layers in your Layers Panel. Background and Shape Layers. Right click on your Shape Layer and select Rasterize Layer from the pop up menu.

Now you will apply the effects in the Blending Options to achieve the Glass Button effect. Right click on your Shape Layer again and select Blending Options from the pop up menu. The Blending Options dialog box will open and you will need to apply all the effects below. Don’t close the Blending Options until I tell you to click OK because you will need to apply more than one effect in this box.

The Lord of the Rings- Unmatched Popularity Analysis

There are certain things that are like old wine that keep getting better and better with time. They are truly timeless in the sense that they are able to connect to each new generation without being categorized as old school.

You can find numerous examples like Marlon Brando, Elvis Presley, The Beatles, etc. in the field of entertainment and fictional novels like Sherlock Holmes, Huckleberry Finn, jungle Book and so on.

There is a different category of novels that have been made into successful film franchises because movie makers across the world wanted the characters to become alive on the big screen like Harry Potter, The Godfather, The Mummy, The Lord of the Rings and the list is endless.

Franchise

Everyone is aware of the Lord of the Rings as a movie but not many are familiar with the fact that it was adapted from a novel of the same name, atleast not when it was released back in the day.

Now, with the advent of social media, there is nothing that you can’t know about with any flick but let us discuss about its novel and how its movie franchise has given us various moments of cinematic masterpiece.

Even the author, J.R.R Tolkien, would not have thought of even in his wildest dreams that his novel would be such a game changer and he had just set the foundation for a successful franchise of films that continue to be popular to this day.

Let us look at the finer aspects of what makes it work like for its visual effects and other important factors. Keep in mind that this came out around the same time as The Mummy Returns and Scorpion King, which had already registered a bumper opening at the box office.

It was difficult for any film to compete within the same lines but luckily, Lord of the Rings lived up to many expectations and emerged as one of the highest grossing films whose main background was a suspense thriller adapted from a novel on similar lines with Harry Potter.

Subplots

While the book is more layered than the movie and for obvious reasons as it can be read at times of leisure and a two hour movie can’t incorporate each and every line into its story, the latter has many adventurous subplots to watch out for.

It gives you the thrills of Numenor where elves coexisted in perfect harmony with men and this film perfectly explored their relationship to perfection with excellent character development of both sides even though many viewers were curious to know why elves were tall compared to other races.

Each and every character is neither completely good nor bad but all have shades of grey without tilting completely towards either side while the action sequences are narrated exactly as given in the book.

Lord of the Rings has a depth to its core plot which bridges the gap between this world and parallel world where the author’s powerful imagination is reflected through the range of breathtaking locations used in the movie.

Finally, the fight between good and evil where the former is tempted with riches and dreams of joining the latter side and you are left wondering whether it will truly let his greed get the better of him.

Review: Belkin Share N300 Wireless N Router

After a nearby lightning strike, I found myself in the market for a new wireless router for my home computer network that supports five computers via a DSL connection. My previous router, a Linksys, had served me well, but being on a budget, I was looking for an economical replacement. After all, the wireless router was not the only item needing replacement after the electrical storm. I had two cordless phones, one television, a pool pump timer and a lawn sprinkler system controller to replace.

I had purchased other Belkin wireless products in the past, so the option of buying a Belkin wireless router was not going to be a compromise in quality, just a smart buy. The Belkin Share N300 falls in the middle of the six different models Belkin offers. I chose it over the other models, weighing price vs. features. As with all the models, the N300 comes with a 2-year warranty. The Belkin Share N300 has four LAN ports and a single USB port for either an external backup hard drive or printer. My household only has one printer, an old HP DeskJet that is not wireless capable, so the idea of being able to share that printer without having to give up my computer to other users seemed a marvelous idea. The external backup and external printer are just two of the “Apps” that come with the N300. The unit also “automatically detects and resolves network problems and runs routine maintenance scans ….” A good feature, but it also means that the router drops offline for a minute once in a while to reboot.

The Belkin Share N300 has a small footprint and takes up very little space. The antenna is hidden inside the unit housing and makes the overall appearance very appealing. Nice style but not stackable like the Linksys routers that are better suited for multi-unit commercial applications. The wireless system operates at 2.4 GHz and supports transfer rates of up to 12 megabits per second. The system is encrypted, 64/128 WEP, so you do not end up sharing your connection with your neighbors. One nice thing about the encryption code, is already printed out on a card for you, unlike my previous Linksys router. The encryption code, however, is much simpler should you have concerns about the teenager computer geek living next door hacking into your system.

The Belkin comes with all the standard cables required for hookup to either DSL or cable modems. The system is compatible with XP with Service Pack 3 or higher, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Mac OS v10.5 and v10.6. Computer requirements are minimal, so unless you have some ancient system from the early days of computers, there is no concern about your computer being able to support this wireless router.

The hardware installation is simple enough, but not exactly plug-n-play. Getting the Belkin router to communicate between the modem and computer was not so easy. Not a real problem as Belkin has excellent 24/7 Tech Support. The person at Tech Support was very knowledgeable and walked me through the system setup just like the Netgear ex3700 manual. It was a little complex even for the seasoned Tech, but it only took about ten to fifteen minutes for the Tech to get all the setup kinks taken care of, and I was happily surfing the net once again.

Setting up the other household computers to use the printer was quick and easy. Just load the Belkin setup disk into each remote computer and follow a few simple steps. If your printer driver is not found on your remote computers, you will need the printer driver disk or download the driver off the internet.

Overall I’ve been very pleased with my selection of the Belkin N300 wireless router. A good product at a reasonable price and great 24/7 Tech Support should you ever need it.

Mastering the Case Interview

Any consulting candidate can look great on paper, but can you really offer a valuable service to businesses? That is exactly what hiring managers want to know, and they determine the answer to that question through case interviews. Typically, the case interview will be the conclusion to a lengthy interview process in which the hiring manager will learn everything he or she can about your qualifications, past successes, education, work ethic, and your management skills. Although, you can improve you management skills with the help of balanced scorecard powerpoint easily. 

Case interviews are most commonly used for the following consulting positions:

  • Management Agencies
  • Law Firms
  • Police Departments
  • Government Organizations
  • Non-Profit Organizations
  • Social Work Institutions
  • Marketing  amp; Advertising Agencies

When consulting for any of the above companies, your output directly affects the success or failure of the business in whatever capacity you will be hired to perform.

In most cases, the case interview will involve a series of real-life situations for which you will have to determine the best possible solution. They are commonly called “What If” situations or “Suppose…” situations. The hiring manager will outline the details surrounding the fictional problem, and you will be given a set amount of time to come up with a plan of action.

The consulting candidate can use any number of available resources to best impress the hiring manager. Software, graphs, charts, sums, projection charts, and models are completely acceptable ways to illustrate your idea to the hiring manager. The most important thing to remember is that the more logical and well-developed your idea, the more impressed the hiring manager will be.

The good thing about case interviews is that there are no right answers. Your services as a consultant are required because the current business officers don’t know how to handle certain issues. They can describe those issues to you, but your solution must only impress them. If your ideas are logical, then they will most likely be accepted as viable.

To make case interviews progress more smoothly, apply the following suggestions.

  1. Be a professional. The hiring manager is looking for a take-charge, confident consultant who can step right into the company’s shoes and make changes without supervision. Don’t hem and haw about several different avenues; choose one and proceed forcefully with it as though it were the only intelligent solution.
  2. Explain in detail. You not only have to tell the hiring manager what your solution is, but you must also describe how you arrived at that particular conclusion. Use variables and hypothesis to explain in detail why you feel the way you do, and what benefits your solution poses over alternatives.
  3. Be prepared. Before you enter the case interview, learn as much as you can about the business for which you will hopefully be working. Learn about the cash flow, the operations, and about the nitty-gritty details the hiring manager will not expect you to know. The more you know about the company, the more likely you will be to deliver a plausible solution.
  4. Be a detective. Approach each question from a neutral and logical perspective, and work it in a logical fashion. You can’t solve a case based on circumstantial evidence just like you can’t solve a business problem based on hypothetical assumptions.
  5. Be proactive. The hiring manager will expect you to come on board with guns ablaze’. This means that your responses to the case interview should be entirely proactive. Don’t tell them what you could do; tell them what you will do. This will allow the hiring manager and business officers to feel confident in your abilities.
  6. Go above and beyond. Just because the hiring manager gives you a small problem doesn’t mean that you can’t jump ahead. Explain why your solution will affect sales and production ten years from now, and what your subsequent steps would be to keep the ball rolling.

Case interviews can be stressful, but if you approach them with a calm, clear head, you can make immediate headway with the hiring manager, and hopefully land yourself a consulting position.

Resurface Your Kitchen Cabinets in a Contemporary Stainless Steel Flower Motif

Resurfacing your kitchen cabinets in a contemporary flower motif is super easy and a fun way to add a fun and whimsical touch to a kitchen cabinet, playroom cabinet, or even the surface of an armoire as there are different types of drawer slides that you can choose from according to your kitchen style. 

I have lived in many old homes and resurfaced many kitchen cabinets in a variety of different paint treatments. This technique combines a combination of paint and three-dimensional flowers made out of silver stainless steel sheeting material!

To Resurface Your Kitchen Cabinets in This Contemporary Stainless Steel Flower Motif You Will Need:

  • Stainless steel sheeting
  • Tin snips
  • Primer
  • Paint
  • Epoxy Glue
  • Black sharpie marker
  • Paint
  • Paintbrushes

So, to get started you will need to sand and paint your kitchen cabinets any color you wish. Primer first and then paint to ensure a long-lasting finish on the cabinets.

Now, while all the paint is drying you can start working on your stainless steel contemporary flowers.

I made a video showing you how to cut out and assemble the flowers. Click here to watch it. In the video, I am using fabric, but thin and pliable metal sheeting will work well!

So, all you need to do it layout your sheet of thin stainless steel metal. If you do not want to go through the trouble actually using real metal sheeting you could also use some of that contact paper that looks just like stainless steel! It looks great and will work equally as well to update the surface of your game room cabinets, kitchen cabinets, or studio cabinets.

By the way, try mixing and matching copper and silver metal sheeting for a sophisticated look.

Now, use your sharpie marker to draw out the large daisy outline on a sheet of card stock. Now, draw a slightly smaller daisy on the card stock as well. The large daisy outline should be about 3 inches across and the smaller flower about 2 inches across.

Now, cut out these little templates and use them to trace onto your metal sheeting or contact paper. You will need two large daisies and four small daisies for each flower.

Assemble the flowers as shown in the video. Use epoxy glue to glue them together and let this dry completely for twenty-four hours. Be sure to read your specific type of epoxy glue for the correct drying time.

Now, once all paint and glue have cured or dried you are ready to start adhering the contemporary metal flowers to the kitchen cabinets.

You can do this in any pattern you wish, but I think it looks awesome to adhere to them in a checkerboard type pattern.

You can also create swirls of flowers starting with one flower in the center of the kitchen cabinet and then spiraling outward. The look can be as whimsical as you want.

This simple kitchen cabinet resurfacing project is for the artistic and whimsical individual who loves a unique and contemporary look in their home!!

For a contemporary metal, the garden tries gluing your flowers near the top half of your cabinet doors. Now, use your metal sheeting again and cut out systems and leaves as well! They can also be glued onto the fronts of your outdated cabinets!

Gods: Land of Inifinity: Reviewing Turn-Based RPG for PCs

Gods: Lands of Infinity is a turn-based role-playing game set in a mythical medieval world. Your character is a woman named Vivien, who has been sent to rescue the world from evil by assembling the pieces of a mighty weapon. You start out in the city of Slavingrad, which is a base of sorts. Here you receive your first quests, weapons, and armor. As you level up you are granted more powerful attacks, but these are designed so that they can only be used once every few turns. The turn-based system is simple: Attack and you use up attack points, defend and you gain some back. The stronger the attack, the greater the amount of attack points used. This is also the same with magic. Although with magic you also need to have mana along with your attack points to cast spells. As you journey through the game you will encounter a wide variety of enemies and locales. Many of the locales have no enemies but instead offer simple quests or the opportunity to serve as a delivery person in order to make a little money. Money is hard to come by in this game, so spend very carefully, especially when it comes to the secondary characters that come and join your party at different points during the game. You have full control over the actions of the secondary characters as far as their attacks and spells are concerned. The armor and weapons have slots for gems(the better the weapon or armor the more slots). There are gems that boost attack or magic power and others that raise hit points or mana.

Graphics:

The graphics of the game are above average, and many of the locations are extremely picturesque. Some of the backgrounds and border areas can be a bit blocky or lower res, but overall the look of the game is quite good.

Sound:

Most of the talking done in the game is of the “you read it” variety. There are a few exceptions and when there is voice work it is competent even if the English translation isn’t always perfect. The music is gorgeous and haunting, varying from locale to locale, giving the game an epic feel. There are some areas, though, where there is no music at all. Instead you get background noises which consist almost entirely of birds chirping and squawking.

It is a pleasant sound to the ears, the kind of which you hear early in the morning at dawn when birds start chirping at the rising sun. This sound was also used in Pokemon go account games which involved pokemons.

Gameplay:

This is class turn-based role-playing. The battles are both exciting and challenging, requiring strategy as well as strength to win.

Replay value:

Not much. Although you can designate Vivien as either a fighter or magic user, you run across enough of both in your party members and get a feel for what it would be like being both. The game is fairly linear, and after playing it once, you won’t run across any new surprises.

Verdict:

As RPG fans know, there are VERY few turn-based games available on the market. If you truly crave a turn-based game, there is much to like in Gods: Lands of Infinity. For those with only casual interest in turn-based games, this will quite likely seem a bore. As a turn-based fan myself, I would give this game a 7.2 out of 10.

Don’t Wear Your Gucci to the Grocery Store: How to Wear Designer Clothing

Up until recent years, designer clothing labels like Gucci, Prada, Valentino, Oscar de la Renta, Chanel, and Versace have been associated strictly with Hollywood socialites and celebutantes. Not only was the matter of the heavy price tags of these labels a factor in weeding out the average consumers (it is not uncommon to see one garment costing upwards of $10,000.00), there was also the matter of status. Just being able to afford a designer’s artwork was not always enough to be able to wear them with confidence. Preferably, you also had to be a desirable person in the label head’s eyes. Designers wanted their clothing only on certain individuals’ bodies.

Fortunately, the divide between the Hollywood jet setters and at least the upper class of the rest of society is beginning to dissolve. Designers are beginning to create high-end, remarkably well made pieces for the less wealthy (albeit definitely not for those of average income levels, by any means). Simple blouses can be bought for as little as $2500.00 now, and shoes can be purchased for a meager $700-$800.00. While still high enough to deter most, these prices are just low enough for those willing to put in the extra overtime at work out of sheer desperation for the newest pair of Christian Louboutin heels. This phenomenon has created a generation of individuals, mostly women, who are able to buy designer clothing without the slightest idea as to how those pieces were intended to be worn. To avoid going into thousands of dollars of credit card debt only to be embarrassed later on when you are told that your $1500.00 handbag is not right for the occasion, read on.

Designer clothing is not meant for everyday wear. Even celebrities wear mall clothing every once in a while to give their designer duds a break. Wearing a designer’s label means that you are literally representing them. Therefore, choose the locales in which you will be seen in these pieces carefully. No, you won’t receive a phone call from a designer’s executive office if you commit a fashion faux pas in one of their pieces, however those in the know will look at you unfavorably if you wear designer clothing in a distasteful manner.

Now, when we say “designer clothing,” we are not referring to your favorite pair of Levi’s or that Tommy Hilfiger polo that you’ve had for three years. Furthermore, we generally are not talking about anything that you can purchase at a department store or mall. We are talking about designers who have specialty boutiques only in select cities. When wearing this type of clothing, make it a point to learn which locations are appropriate for them and which are not in order to avoid appearing clueless, or worse, like “new money”. In other words, a Gucci bag looks ridiculous at a grocery store or utility company. Using designer clothing this way is a desperate cry for attention in the midst of a crowd of individuals who probably cannot tell Michael Kors from Michael Moore. Save your designer pieces for professional or prestigious venues only, where they will be appreciated. Certainly, you can use your rfid minimalist wallet when you’re just buying some grocery or running some errands, but it is not advisable to wear designer clothing and stylish bags when you are not in a formal and prestigious event.

Next, it is important to know the difference between last season’s designer looks and this season’s. For one season, school-girl plaids and knee high boots will be all the rage, while the next season will feature soft pastels and chunky platforms. There is usually a marked difference between each season’s runway looks. Therefore, while purchasing last season’s designer clothing, accessories, or shoes may be easier on your budget, unfortunately it is considered a bit tacky. It makes one look as if he/she is unable to afford this season’s look (which may be true, but there is no reason to advertise the fact). However, a great alternative to buying new clothing from your favorite designer each season is to stock up on essential vintage pieces in classic styles. Vintage heels, dresses, and bags can overflow your closet forever with little danger of ever going out of style. This makes them excellent investments, especially for those just learning the ropes of designer label shopping.

Finally, never mix and match your discount clothing with your designer clothing. While it is perfectly fine to mix a department store’s pricier items with your less expensive pieces, it is unacceptable to wear a combination such as Manolo Blahnik heels with Target jeans. If you are going to wear the labels, wear them from head to toe.

With the above tips in mind, you should be ready to go out and violently abuse any designer boutique’s credit card machine. Remember, when this season’s pricey items are out of style, you can sell them back to resale stores for excellent rates in order to restock for the current season. Therefore, make it a point to buy only what is in style right this minute if you are going the designer route, and leave those urges to go cheap at Wal-mart, where they belong.

Is Coffee Bad for Your Skin?

Should you stop drinking coffee to achieve beautiful, radiant skin? Well, there are pros and cons when it comes to drinking coffee. Coffee is loaded in caffeine which can produce negative and positive effects on the body. The key is not to drink too much of it.

Some pros of drinking coffee is that it contains antioxidants. Antioxidants help ward off cancers of various types, including skin cancer. Coffee contains a lot of caffeine which has actually been found to retard the aging process, improve short-term memory, and help fight off Alzheimer’s disease. If caffeine is consumed after exercise, it is found that it actually blocks the chemical that activates pain receptors, thus reducing muscle soreness. It is believed that it works better than pain relievers at doing this. Coffee is also used to exfoliate the skin. You can rub wet coffee grounds onto your skin to exfoliate; or after rubbing them on, you can let them sit on your skin for a few minutes before rinsing to reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Some cons to drinking coffee is because it is loaded with caffeine, it can mess with your sleep schedule. Sleep is necessary for beautiful, healthy, glowing skin. The only time your body repairs itself is during sleep. Since caffeine can stay in your body for up to 12 hours, make sure to drink it in the morning. If not, you might deprive your body of the sleep it needs. Coffee is also a natural diuretic, so if you drink too much it may cause dehydration. You don’t want that to happen because your body, including your skin, need fluids to transport essential nutrients throughout. For protection of the skin, Fresh coffee from supplier should be purchased at reasonable rates. It will not have any bad effects on the skin and health of the person. 

Drinking small amounts of coffee shouldn’t affect your skin. It seems that there are more pros to drinking coffee than cons. Just limit it to one cup of coffee per day. The worst thing it could do for your skin, is mess with your sleep. And sleep is very, very important for the health of your skin and body. Also, remember that too much caffeine is not good for your body.

If you can, try drinking Green tea instead of coffee.Green tea has powerful antioxidants. It is supposed to be really good for your health and is great for your immune system. It also contains caffeine just in case you need that dose in the morning. Another benefit: it seems that drinking green tea daily will benefit your acne problem. It seems to act as a calming agent (Check out my guide to clearer, acne free skin). Just make sure you steep your tea for at least 10 minutes for all those antioxidants to leek in, and drink before an hour’s up.

The Deterioration Of Social Networks &; Loss Of Friends After Divorce

As with any end to a relationship, there are many dynamics to consider. For most couples, whether married or not, the end of a relationship marks the beginning to a change in finances, living status and even the emotional connection, whether positive or negative.

This change in relationship, whether by divorce or separation, can lead to great stress and anxiety in either individual. Often, when we are in the process of divorce or separation, we lean on the individuals we are closest to. But, what if those individuals happen to be your in-laws or friends and family who were part of your relationship?

While we consider a divorce or separation to be extremely difficult, emotionally, this feeling is often based on our own inter-family dynamics and changes. What you may fail to realize is the sudden loss or change in your social network may also impair the separation or divorce, making the transition into your new life far more difficult.

Yes, there are several ways now on how you can grow your followers and audience on different social media networks such as Instagram through cheap and fast instagram views from Buzzvoice. But this is ideal for businesses, vloggers, bloggers and among others. And they are mere strangers. They cannot be compared to your relatives and loved ones.

When reaching out to your social networks, do not be surprised by the sudden disinterest some individuals may have in your needs, wants and desires. This is especially true if the social network relationship is one in which your former partner may have carried more weight or may have been more highly regarded. Often, this is difficult to understand.

If you are going through a divorce or separation, and you find that some of your family and friends have begun distancing themselves from you, take a look at the subconscious thought process that develops as a result of your separation and divorce. Often, without even realizing it, your friends and family may assess the benefits of continuing a relationship with you, and assess the cost and benefits of maintaining a relationship with your former partner. Once these considerations are made, your family and friends may find it necessary to re-structure their relationship with not only you but also your former partner.

While these changes in your social network may be surprising and even offensive, try to look at them objectively. As you struggle through the transition in your life, understand that those around you, who are impacted by your separation and divorce, as also just as likely to struggle with the change. Respect their decision to modify the relationship with you as, in most cases, this change is short-term and, when respected, may lead to a development of a long-term relationship after the separation or divorce period has passed. The key, here, is to avoid alienated those you love and allow them to create a new path for communication as they see fit based on their need for future social networking with you.

Louis Vuitton- Handbags Of a Lifetime

There is no limit to a human being’s desire as everyone wants to achieve anything and everything at the same time. What is your first reaction when you go out shopping and see your favorite item or product displayed right in front of you inside the shop?

There is an underlying fact, especially for women, that whenever they are out with their husbands or friends shopping for supplies, they will be more interested in window shopping and would not hesitate to purchase almost half the shop if the occasion called for it.

What are the things the women are most fond of? Well, many of them like jewelry, makeup kit, cosmetics, handbags, etc. to name a few and similarly men too have their fair share of interests but are more careful to suppress their desires due to budget constraints.

Biggest Weakness

We are now going to talk about Louis Vuitton, one of the biggest brands as far as handbags are concerned with a lot of variety to their name which has been the talk of the town for a longtime.

This may seem quite odd but it is true that Louis Vuitton is perhaps the most versatile brand in nature and that too in handbags alone due to the different sizes and shapes that they come in, which is why they are the most relatable and preferable among women and can be classified as their biggest weakness as well as the best friend.

The popularity of this brand can be gauged from the fact that it became a source of envy for rival companies making similar handbags and they were so intrigued by its super success that they started manufacturing Louis Vuitton Replica in the hopes of fooling consumers as though there was a fake Louis vuitton competition at play and the best duplicate model will get the first prize.

History

There is a long story regarding the origins of this renowned brand and is a product of Louis Vuitton, a French fashion designer cum businessman and entrepreneur, who had noticed the craze for leather products, especially the woman folk who could hardly contain their excitement for shopping, though it was a rare phenomenon in the 19th century.

Vuitton came from a well known family of artisans and carpenters and his parents too were well known in this profession and it was their untimely deaths that prompted him to try his luck in this field in his late teens.

His life struggles are too long to be documented and we will save it for another day but now it is suffice to mention that he launched this brand under his name in 1854 in Paris and the sales price of his first product was a $10000, a princely sum for the time which became a hit.

Monumental Craze

To sum up, the craze for Louis Vuitton handbags is monumental to say the least, especially during the times of World War II, which was when Vuitton was exclusively producing leather products to reap international benefits and Germany was the country where such brands were most popular as leather was high in demand for the Nazi army to use as punishment for the Jews.
