Logic and A Healthier Lifestyle as Natural Anxiety Treatments

If you suffer from frequent worrying or full blown GAD (General Anxiety Disorder) some find it beneficial to consider the logic and healthy-living kind of natural Anxiety Treatment before using prescription drugs.
Dealing with your anxieties with a logic perspective, thinking about how you process problems and issues in your life, implementing a habit of questioning your own worries and fears and trying a little harder to view circumstances in a more constructive way can be very useful.
Quite often when a particular person is affected with constant worry they could be suffering from a kind of cognitive dysfunction, a generally negative way of looking at things. The following are a few examples:
  • Overly simplifying results: if they are not completely perfect, you find yourself feeling just like a failure.
  • From the occasion something bad did happen: misfortune will keep going.
  • Due to the fact bad things do happen: you start to ignore the good things and exclusively concentrate on negative scenarios.
  • Seeing the positives in your life as just invalid coincidences or ‘dumb luck’.
  • Accepting hasty negative assumptions and expectations as ‘facts’.
  • Automatically accepting the worst type of scenarios as the most likely.
  • Thinking that how you feel reflects what is going to take place in reality.
  • Being to hard on oneself and/or other individuals for flaws.
  • Feeling as if you are to blame for everything that goes badly.

Pakistan eyes legal action over ICC rule chang

The PCB chairman, Ijaz Butt, reportedly proposed the amendment the Pakistan board is presently fighting against

Daily Worldwide - The PCB and ICC could be on a collision course again in a high-stakes case that potentially involves Pakistan's suspension from cricket's governing body. The Pakistan board has sent a legal notice to the ICC raising questions - and threatening legal action - about a proposed amendment to the ICC's constitution, which would allow the governing body to suspend a member in case of government interference in the running of a national cricket board.
Ironically the amendment - which also requires that a member board's executive body include elected officials - is said by some accounts to have been proposed at an ICC executive board meeting in February by the PCB chairman Ijaz Butt himself. What is clear is that he didn't object to the matter at the time.
The PCB is one of the boards directly affected by the amendment. Its constitution states that the President of the country - invariably but not always a political figure - is the Patron of the board and the sole authority in hiring or firing the chairman. Nor are elections of any kind held. A number of members of the governing board - the executive body - are appointed by the chairman and all must be approved by the President. This, the PCB argues in its legal notice, could result in its suspension, even permanent expulsion, for the changes are tantamount to asking the board to throw the Patron out of the constitution.
It's not the PCB alone that could be affected by the amendment. Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) is an interim body whose major decisions go through the ministry, which also has the power to disband the board entirely. In Bangladesh, interference isn't as clear and distinct, though all board presidents are government-appointed. Thus any given BCB administration reflects the prevailing political winds of the day. The current president Mustafa Kamal, for example, is a sitting member of parliament. The BCCI would also come on the radar. Though its officials are elected, there is a clear and strong presence of senior Indian politicians at its highest levels.
The proposed changes have been on the ICC's agenda since the February meeting. At its subsequent board meeting in Mumbai, immediately after the World Cup final, the ICC board decided the changes would be officially proposed at the annual conference in July in Hong Kong, and be made applicable by July 2012.
The press release of that meeting stated the changes will be "designed to prevent undue interference by governments in the administration of cricket in Member countries, including but not limited to interference in operational matters, the selection and management of teams, the appointment of coaches or support personnel or the activities of a Member."
Despite the quite vast implications for governance of the game around the world from such a proposal, the release drew little comment. But in a series of articles for the Pakistan daily Daily Times at the start of May, eminent columnist Zakir Hussain Syed - also a former administrator - first revealed the PCB's reaction and contents of the legal notice, sent after the April 4 meeting, and confirmed by ESPNcricinfo to be accurate.
The legal notice was prepared by Mark Gay, a sports law specialist with DLA Piper who has worked with the PCB on several matters in the past, and refers to the legal framework of the country where the ICC is registered: the British Virgin Islands (B VI).
"The insertion of these provisions at this time, into the ICC constitution, in the circumstances, in which the PCB operates," the notice reads, "would constitute unfair prejudice for the purpose of section 184(1) of the B VI of the Business Companies Act 2004 (the B VI Act). As such unless the ICC agree to drop its proposal to pass such amendments to the Articles of Associations at its Annual General Meeting in July, our client will have no alternative but to commence legal proceedings against it to restrain this conduct, which we consider unfairly prejudicial to our client in its capacity as shareholder of the ICC."
The relevant law refers to members of a company being able to apply to the court for an order if they consider certain actions of the company have been, or are likely to be, discriminatory or prejudicial. The PCB argues the amendment is prejudicial because it affects only some members, "i.e. those member boards that are currently elected will not be affected," the notice says. Also, the PCB says it has "nothing whatsoever to do with the objects of the company, which are promotion of…cricket. It is a nakedly political measure."
In the April 4 meeting, PCB officials also pointed out that upon giving membership to Pakistan, the ICC was aware of the nature of the board and the relationship with the government of the day. A far more complex and awkward line of argument was also raised when officials asked how 'government interference' was to be defined. Would it include, an official asked as an example, a government deciding whether or not a team tours a country, as has happened recently with Zimbabwe and Pakistan? It has also been pointed out that holding even domestic tournaments in Pakistan often requires assistance from the provincial or federal government to provide security. The ICC says that there will be strict definitions of interference, to do with appointments in the board and its administration only.
The situation is further complicated by Butt's role in placing the issue on the agenda. It is believed that the topic was not officially on the agenda in February and was only included at the last minute, the night before the meeting when notes were passed into the hotel rooms of board members.
The matter has been informally on the cards for nearly a year as the ICC is keen to bring cricket in line with other prominent sports bodies such as FIFA and the IOC, though it was first broached officially only in that February meeting. The next day, as is protocol, a board director had to volunteer to put the amendment on the table and it was alleged later that Butt proposed it, obviously raising no objection at the time.
However, in between that and the next meeting, Pakistan belatedly realised the implications of the amendments and lobbied Sri Lanka and Bangladesh to rustle up support. They even sent them a copy of the legal notice and were, according to observers familiar with the developments, assured of support. Yet at the April 4 meeting, both boards withdrew support and voted for the amendments, leaving the PCB as the sole objector from among the Full Members.
It was at the April meeting that other board members are said to have told PCB representatives that they were objecting to a proposal officially put forth by their own (PCB) chairman. Pakistan have asked ICC officials to check the minutes of the meeting to see if this is indeed the case, but have not yet been given a response. Pakistan had taken along their legal advisor Taffazul Rizvi to the meeting to explain to the board the difficulties involved in making the proposed changes in Pakistan. He was not allowed to speak, however, by the ICC board.
Since then, there has been what one involved official said were "fruitful discussions" between the PCB and ICC on the matter. The ICC is said to be aware of the difficulties involved in the PCB asking the President to end his own involvement in cricket, and there have been discussions about extending the window of time during which they expect the changes, as the ICC understands it to be a long-term process. The ICC is said even to be willing to come to Pakistan to discuss the matter with the relevant authorities. Contrary to the ICC's optimism that it won't come to it, ESPNcricinfo understands that the PCB's reluctance will compel it still to pursue legal action if needed, even if that will be what the official said would be "contrary to the spirit of discussions."
The developments are likely to raise questions once again not only about how equipped Butt is to handle such matters at board meetings, but also the growing isolation of Pakistan. The board believes they are being victimised, alluding to as much in the legal notice, believing the amendments to be "provoked by a desire to damage the PCB or out of a desire for revenge."
This is the fall-out, the PCB says, from John Howard's non-appointment in June 2010. At the time Pakistan was one of the members supporting Howard's nomination but eventually they reversed. "We are instructed that the Australian Cricket Board put forward as their nominee of the ICC ... John Howard. It is the view of many in Pakistan that he has promoted racial policies," the legal notice says. "As such, the PCB among others, expressed its concern about his status as presidential candidate. When his candidature was withdrawn, in the view of PCB, this measure was born. If this is true, and full disclosure should reveal this, it is the product not of a desire to advance the objects of ICC, or to promote cricket, but out of the desire to disadvantage the PCB."
Over the course of this administration, since October 2008, the PCB has steadily lost allies in the ICC. Relations with the BCCI remain enmeshed in political developments. The rest of the Asian bloc is not the guarantee of support it once was, as the withdrawal of support from Sri Lanka and Bangladesh on this issue also made clear. The ECB, at best, remains cool after the fracas last summer when Butt clumsily accused the England team of match-fixing, only to apologise subsequently. Cricket Australia were not happy after the Howard rebuff and now, after the thinly veiled accusations of the legal notice, their attitude is not likely to soften.

I am fit enough to play international cricket: Jayasuriya

Daily Worldwide - Sri Lankan all-rounder Sanath Jayasuriya on Wednesday said that he is fit enough to play international cricket and is waiting for an opportunity to play in the ODI series against England later this month.

With opener Upul Tharanga unlikely to be considered for selection after being embroiled in an alleged doping scandal, Jayasuriya looks to be the most likely option to open the innings.

"Definitely I want to play for my country. That is why I have not announced retirement from One-day cricket till date. To play for Sri Lanka has always been my priority," Jayasuriya said.

"If any such offer comes my way, I would like to grab it for sure," the 41-year-old added.

Sri Lanka, currently playing a Test series in England, are scheduled to play a lone T20 match in Bristol on June 25 followed by five One-dayers from June 28 to July 9.

Jayasuriya, who had announced retirement from Test cricket in 2007 and played his last ODI in December 2009 against India, believed the break would not affect his form and fitness.

"I have been away from the game for eight or nine months hardly. I had played T20 world championship, domestic cricket, trial matches before ODI World Cup and IPL. I was not away from the game. I am fit enough to play international cricket," said the veteran, who will be celebrating his 42nd birthday on June 30.
"I am not talking about my future now. The series against England is in my radar as of now," said Jayasuriya, who is the only player to have scored in excess of 13,000 runs and capture more than 300 wickets in One-day Internationals.

The Matara Marauder also does not intend to change his style of play.

"I have never changed my style. I am playing the way I used to play 20 years back. I will keep doing that in future also," he said.

In 2008, his ODI career was as good as over when he was omitted for a series in the West Indies.

However, a stirring performance in the IPL in which he tallied 514 runs, forced Sri Lanka`s sports minister to intervene in team selection for the Asia Cup.

Jayasuriya`s selection proved to be beneficial for the team as he made useful contributions, including scoring a century in the title clash in Sri Lanka`s triumphant campaign.


Kallis named South African Cricketer of the Year

Daily Worldwide - Johannesburg: All-rounder Jacques Kallis dominated the South African Cricket Awards, winning three of them, including the prestigious Cricketer of the Year.

Kallis also won Test Cricketer of the Year award and the KFC "So Good Award!" for his centuries in both innings of the Test match against India at Sahara Park Newlands in Cape Town, where he persevered despite a painful injury.

Kallis had won Cricketer of the Year award in 2004 as well.

AB de Villiers was named ODI Cricketer of the Year and Hashim Amla, who scooped almost all the honours last year, remained the choice of his peers, being named SA Players` Player of the Year and SA Fans` Player of the Year.

Lonwabo Tsotsobe was named Pro20 Cricketer of the Year.
Former Pakistani player Imran Tahir, whose participation during the tour by India late last year was delayed due his citizenship papers not being finalised, was named SA International Newcomer of the Year.
Tahir also won two awards in the professional domestic category, being named both Cricketer of the Year and Domestic Players` Player of the Year.

Faf du Plessis was named MTN40 Cricketer of the Year.

Facebook gets younger… is this a good thing? How parental control software can help.

Daily Worldwide - Kids On FacebookMy recent post was on Internet and Facebook addiction, as specifically relates to teens, tweens, and pre-teens. In the article, I cited a recent study showing that there are actually millions of users under the age of 13, which is the cutoff to join the site. Well, in a move that can either be looked at as “if we can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em,” or an effort to help create a safer environment for those 13 and under, Facebook owner Mark Zuckerberg has decided to allow kids 10-13 to have profiles on the site. These youth profiles will come with more restrictions and precautions, the Facebook brass promises. Zuckerberg and co. rationalize the move as wanting pre-teens to be able to use the site as a “study tool”. Color me dubious.

Ultimately, kids who are on the site either have their parent’s consent already, or are savvy enough to do it under the radar. And really, all’s it takes is a fake birthday, and voilĂ  , Facebook profile. So, while some are viewing this as a good thing by Facebook, I don’t know that it will have much of an impact on the online safety of the kids. They’ll still find a way to work around the restrictions, which is more of a reason for parents to continue to stay on top of their kids’ online activity.

I also want to look at the aspect of social networking in general for kids, and the plusses and minuses. Well, I’m not really sure there are any plusses. I suppose one could argue that it could be used as a study tool by allowing student’s to easily chat with each other, create groups to share information, and just communicate in general with their fellow students. There is certainly some validity to that, however, I personally don’t believe that Facebook, or any other social networking site for that matter, are the right tools for that. They come with too many other pitfalls, distractions and all around bad stuff. And as an adult who uses these sites, I know what a time waster than can be!

There’s also the danger of “Facebook Depression,” recently commented on in this terrific article, Five Ways Parents Can Fight Facebook Depression. One thing the author recommends is banning social media altogether, which can certainly be difficult, but not a bad idea. This is one place where littleye parental control software can be a great benefit, because you can create your own safe filter as well as block specific sites. With younger kids, this is probably an easier thing to accomplish, but with older pre-teens, you may get some conflict. That’s another reason I enjoyed the article noted above, the author emphasized communication above everything, and after all, that’s what it’s all about. Try our parental control software and let us know what you think!

Are Social Networking Sites Making You Money?

Social Networking Sites -  The Hidden Pot Of Gold


What I find hilarious is the fact that so many marketers have been saying screw Google and have been crying because they lost all their precious traffic.  Some marketers have loudly switched to doing their ppc campaigns via Facebook.
What’s sad is the fact that right now people are spending a fortune learning the “secrets” (as if there really are any secrets left online) to learn how to use social networking sites  in their marketing.
The reality folks is in about a year or so Facebook will realize what Google has realized. Most marketers are full of shit! OH YA I WENT THERE, and as such Facebook will also start eliminating people from using their advertising because the truth is —-> (It is not about the marketer, it is about the consumers. )  Unfortunately like in all things it only takes a few bad apples to ruin it for the bunch.
I remember the days where you could throw anything up in Google Adwords and bid on any keywords and it  have it only cost a few cents. I was even using Adwords when words like NETWORK MARKETING cost 1.25 a click.  I also learned how to get that cost down to about 20 cents a click, but still over time I saw more and more people exploiting Adwords and taking advantage of the system kinda like people are taking advantage of Facebook now.


While I am all for using paid advertising methods, I believe most people are not using these types of sites correctly.  Facebook and Twitter have been raved about for years , this has led most people to just spam their business opportunities. This is not the way to get people to join your business online. The best use of social networking sites is to develop real relationships with people.  Most people aren’t taking advantage of what social networks have to offer.
For Example: Think about how many people on Facebook and Twitter that don’t have blogs.  You will be hard pressed to find anyone who uses these 2 social networking sites effectively who doesn’t own a blog. The reason is because blogging isn’t easy its hard and people don’t like hard. However it is the stuff the most people won’t do that separate winners from losers.
We aren’t talking about rocket science we are talking about blogging. GET REAL there are 12 year old kids blogging. There is no excuse under the sun why a person can’t afford $10 a month on a self hosted blog and learn how to blog.  If you aren’t blogging you should really reconsider doing an online business.   Most people shouldn’t be marketing online anyways, most people should get a job.

I know I sound negative, but I would rather scare someone away from online marketing and save them thousands of dollars in wasted time. I know they are out there because I talk to people almost daily who have spent a fortune online and still have empty pockets.
I spent thousands upon thousands of dollars online, but I love the industry and I love marketing to me I look at all the money I have spent as an investment in my education.

Social Networking Sites -  The Point

Like many of you I was convinced that social networking sites was a way to get people into my business. The thing was I really never understood the connection. At first I viewed it the way I viewed ppc,  “just drive as much traffic as possible to my business offers” the thing is these types of sites don’t really work that way.  People are on these sites because they like to communicate and establish relationships with people.
I created a little site that you can use to build your social following in 3 of the biggest social networking sites online.
