Indian International Student On The Most Surprising Things About America

A worthwhile post overall, but this one stood out:

An almost-classless society: I’ve noticed that most Americans roughly have the same standard of living. Everybody has access to ample food, everybody shops at the same supermarkets, malls, stores, etc. I’ve seen plumbers, construction workers and janitors driving their own sedans, which was quite difficult for me to digest at first since I came from a country where construction workers and plumbers lived hand to mouth.

Also, (almost) all sections of society are roughly equal. You’ll see service professionals owning iPhones, etc. as well. This may be wrong but part of it has to do with the fact that obtaining credit in this country is extremely easy. Anybody can buy anything, for the most part, except for something like a Maserati, obviously. As a result, most monetary possessions aren’t really status symbols. I believe that the only status symbol in America is your job, and possibly your educational qualifications.

Full post can be found here. This point reminded me of this post from economist Don Boudreaux. Both articles are wothwhile reads.

  • Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

  • 年をとった女性の気になる髪の薄毛。 薄毛の原因から対応をまわりに知られずに自宅でケアしたい。 そんな方の薄毛の対策には育毛剤がおススメです。 薄毛は、男性だけのものだと思っていませんか? 近頃では、薄毛に悩んでいる女の方が急増しています。 男性とは異なり、さまざまな原因が複雑に絡んでいることが多いのが女の方の薄毛の特徴。 最も大きな要因のひとつとされているのが、女性ホルモンです。 産後や、更年期を迎えて薄毛の症状を感じる女性は多いです。 こういった変化はいずれもホルモンのバランスが乱れることで現れてきます。 女の方が薄毛を感じるタイミングは、出産後と更年期です。 出産後は、多くの女性ホルモンの分泌量が急激に減少してしまいます。 更年期に入った40代は、女性ホルモンの分泌が減少しだんだんと生えてくる髪の毛が細くなりコシなりだす頃です。 女の方のカラダにさまざまな不調をきたしますが、薄毛もその原因なのです。 女性の薄毛の予防と改善は、よい食事と頭皮のケアが良いとされています。 食事は、大豆製品を多く摂取ことをおススメします。 薄毛や細毛の要因としてあげられているのが頭皮の血行不良です。頭皮の血行を促進させることが大切です。 頭皮の血行を促すには、毎日のシャンプー際のマッサージが効果があります。 頭皮の汚れもちゃんと落とすことができて、血行も良くなるため薄毛や抜け毛の予防につながります。 シャンプー際には、続けて頭皮のマッサージをするといいですよ。 今では、若い女性でも起こる薄毛の要因として喫煙、食生活の乱れ、睡眠不足、極端なダイエット、ストレスなどがあります。 今のうちに生活習慣を見直し薄毛・抜け毛を予防しましょう。 薄毛の原因は人によって違いますが誰にも知られずに育毛剤でケアするのがおすすめです。
