Plastic Surgery and the Rejection Factor
During consultation for plastic surgery, plastic surgeons dedicate time to discuss the reasons why the procedure is desired. Some people interested in plastic surgery voice that they would like to improve their appearance. This may involve altering a slight or significant imperfection. Others may wish to improve medical conditions, functionality or enhance quality of life in daily activities that are otherwise avoided. When the concerns are reasonable, plastic surgeons will perform plastic surgery. It is rare for people who see a plastic surgeon to have unreasonable concerns about their appearance. Yet, this may occur for some people afflicted with body dysmorphic disorder. Body dysmorphic disorder is characterized by unreasonably elevated concerns about minor physical flaws. Plastic surgeons screen for body dysmorphic disorder to reduce the risk of unnecessary surgery and re-operation. It is important to note that there is a difference between body dysmorphic disorder and seeking out plastic surgery to resolve rejection.
Plastic surgery is sought after to reduce the risk of rejection by some people. The Body Image published the results of a study in the June issue showing that people who experience rejection because of their appearance are more likely to be interested in plastic surgery. …

Overheard at the WSOP…
* “Honey, you just can’t be chickenshit at these things. You just wouldn’t survive here. No offense.” –Man on the phone with his wife explaining how his bluff got called to knock him out of the $3000 NL event
* “I’m on tilt.” –James “KrazyKanuck” Worth sitting down at a lowly $125 single table satellite…with me…after he busted on the TV bubble in a $5000 event (Incidentally, I went on to chop that one, something I’ve done in my last three single table sats. Also, incidentally, the Kanuck is one really nice guy and it was fun to sit next to him).
* “Tell me your bad beat story: $5 $2.50” –Seen in magic marker at a manned table in the hallway.
* “You’re still here.” –Ernie, the room service waiter who served me two weeks ago, then went on vacation with his family, then returned to find me in the same room.
* “She’s been classically trained.” –Dr. Pauly, at the hooker bar, while a Rio cocktail waitress danced on an elevated stage.

How Much Does Social Media Marketing Cost?
I was reading and article on how much does social media marketing cost. This quote below pretty much sums it up.
Creating a comprehensive strategy for social media marketing and outsourcing all work for all channels (with a minimum of two social networks) costs anywhere from $3,000-$20,000 per month, with the industry average settling between $4,000-$7,000 per month. If you want the social media agency to start the accounts from scratch and consult on a 4- to 12-month contract, you’ll pay between $3,000-$15,000 per month. What do they mean by channels, minimum of two? That’s just a fancy way of saying that the cost includes both Facebook and Twitter…I’m betting there’s probably an upcharge if your company wants Google+, too. — Content Factory
They then go on to claim a spot dead center in that spectrum, while I claim a spot near the bottom of that spectrum.
Why do I dispute that social media marketing cost?
I have a system. I’ve been using it for years, and have taught a handful of select small business proprietors how to use it. It works. It’s efficient. It’s productive. I offer training in how you too can achieve social media marketing success …

Poker’s small slothoki world
…just a brief entry to freak out a little.
A few weeks ago, I sat in a poker tournament across from a guy I’d never met before. He was a friend of a fellow poker blogger. He came along to pony up the $50 buy-in, have a little fun, and bust out of the tourney first.
In case you don’t know, when I’m not a poker playing Otis, I’m a journalist who often covers the court system.
Flash forward to a criminal trial I covered all of last week: The last slothoki on the stand (and perhaps the one that convinced the defendant to cop a plea) was a guy by the same name as the guy who played in the tourney.
2004 WSOP Episodes #5 & #6
Turns out, he did not only have the same name, but also the same DNA.
Now, I’m fully aware of how small a world it is, but it freaks me out a little bit that a poker blogger I only met a month or so ago also happens to be friends with a guy who played a major role in a case I’ve been covering for the past year and a …

Sensitive Skin: How to Cleanse?
Cleansing can be a challenge for those with sensitive skin or dry skin. While washing and cleansing are necessary and important for proper skincare, it can also dry out or irritate the skin if it is overdone. People with sensitive skin react easily to minor irritants, and unfortunately some soap including the traditional bar soap can contain many of them.
DON’T WASH TOO OFTEN:
Showering or bathing once a day should be plenty for most people. This may be different for those who work labor jobs in the summer or have a similar circumstance, but for most people that work in a temperature controlled environment, the amount of dirt and dust that is accumulated is limited. Washing too often dries the skin, leaving it prone to irritation and itching. For those with sensitive skin, this effect is amplified.
DON’T USE HOT WATER
Hot water is rough on the skin, and drains the moisture. Long hot baths get the blood flow going, and also temporarily weakens the barrier of the skin, causing itching and irritation. Use lukewarm water to bathe, or better, shower, and limit your time in the shower. Short, warm washing once a day or once in two …

6 Best Secrets of Real Estate Investors
Real estate investment is a source of passive and active income. This is due to steady rate of property appreciation. Prospective investors finding ways of saving for investment may consider real estate business.
However, the business experiences varying degrees of risks. Despite the real estate risks, a few investors emerged successful. While countless of other investors are running into losses that are avoidable.
Let us examine real estate during 2007/2009 global economic recession. Then, we can discuss the secrets of successful investors.
Brassica investment claimed that unprecedented foreclosures filings took place in America in 2007/2009. During the 2007/2009 global economic crisis. “Florida filings soared 133%, hitting more than 4.5% of all households, while Arizona filings jumped 203% to 4.5%”. Also, “..California had the highest total number of filings for any state, 523,624, more than double 2007 levels”.
According to statistics by Forbes:“the median sale price for a home in the U.S. was $200,000”. By the time the market reached bottom, “prices had dropped 29%, to $140,000”. Suffices to say that the foreclosures crashed the value of properties. Although, the business saw untoward crises in the past, that doesn’t stop regular earnings of investors who know the secrets.

His Year Rolls On: Erik Seidel Wins the Five Star bandar judi pulsa High Roller Event
If you are a golf fan, you have been privileged to watch Tiger Woods plying his craft from 1997 until now. Granted, his last 18 months have been marred by personal problems, injuries, and a golf swing that seems to be in constant flux, but on the whole, you and I have never seen a man dominate golf as he has done. Consider the following: Woods has won 71 PGA Tour Events and 14 Majors, both tops among active players. He was the fastest player to ever reach the 50 win plateau, leads all golfers in career winnings, and has piled up 11 World Golf Titles as well. By every measurable standard, you’ve seen a golfing legend when you see Eldrick ‘Tiger’ Woods on the course. And yet this is a poker article, but Woods is relevant, because I’ll suggest to you now that Erik Seidel’s run of live tournament success thus far in 2011 is poker’s equivalent to Woods on the links. If you’ve not yet noticed the run of tournament success that Seidel has built up in this calendar year, allow us to bring you up to speed on a legendary streak of excellence.

Video 789bet login Poker Appendix 5
This appendix presents my analysis of Chase the Royal video poker. The rules for Chase the Royal are as follows:
The game is based on conventional video poker. The player may choose among four different video poker variations and either 3-play, 5-play, or 10-play.
If the player is dealt a pair of jacks, queens, or kings and made a max coin bet then the player may exchange the high pair for 3 cards to a royal flush. This Chase the Royal option does not apply if the pair is part of a higher hand (for example a two pair) or if the player also has 4 cards to a straight or royal flush.
The 3 cards to a royal shall be chosen at random from among the 40 possible (4 suits by 10 ways to choose 3 ranks out of 5). The player may see the specific three cards before deciding to switch.
If the player opts to chase the royal then the other two cards will be dealt immediatly from the remaining 49 cards in the deck.
As an incentive to chase the royal a straight shall pay 10 and a flush shall pay …

A new video poker game (currently at the Orleans and Suncoast) pays the player both on the their initial 5-card hand and their hand after the draw. Half the coins bet will pay based on the intial hand and the other half based on the draw. If the player bets an odd number of coins then the extra coin will go toward the draw of one hand.
