Creating a Rich Text Signature in Gmail

How many times have you received an email from someone that didn’t include an email signature? I can personally attest that I get this at least five to ten times per day (and it is rather annoying). You have very little information to go off of — like who pat123@gmail.com is.  As a business owner, this is an extremely unacceptable practice, as you are not only limiting your customers from contacting you, but you are also missing out on promoting your businesses website as well as other way’s people can connect with you.

So what do you do in this situation?

If you’re a Gmail user (which I highly recommend), just this morning, Gmail added in the ability to add in rich text into your email signature. Read More

Low Vitamin D levels may increase risk of depression in the elderly.

Research has shown that lower blood levels of vitamin D have been associated with the increased occurrence of elderly health  issues. A new study in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism (May 2010), followed the vitamin D levels of 531 women and 423 men, over 65 years of age, for a period of 6 years. Participants’ depressive symptoms were assessed (using the Center for Epidemiological Studies-Depression Scale-CES-D).  Those exhibiting lower blood levels of vitamin D (< 50 nmol/liter) scored significantly higher on the depression scale.  The association between blood vitamin D levels and depression was also found to be more observable in women than men.  Previous studies have supported the need for vitamin D for the physical health of the elderly.

Conquer Entertainment holds UMO in New York, New York

Tuesday evening in a crowded room, Amanda Ridinger, the woman behind Conquer Entertainment, introduced their UMO training in conjunction with Internet retailer, Market America to a packed crowd.  For those of you that are unfamiliar with the term UMO, it stands for University Major Overview and it is a driving force for entrepreneurs looking to find a focus towards earning their financial freedom.

Not only were attendants treated to a night where Amanda detailed how Conquer Entertainment would benefit the artist, but she also showed how non-musicians could also take advantage of this new program as well (building a business and helping to create a stream of residual income in the process).

Coenzyme Q10 supplementation and enhanced exercise performance

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is an important vitamin-like compound whose recognition in the United States is growing due to its support of cardiovascular health and more. It plays a key role in the production of energy in all cells of the body. As an important fat-soluble antioxidant, CoQ10 protects the mitochondria (cell’s energy factory) from free radical damage. A recent article published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research has evaluated the effects of oral CoQ10 supplementation on performance in supramaximal exercise. Examples of such exercise include sprinting and cycling. The study evaluated 15 healthy and sedentary men during two 8-week periods. Mean power increased with CoQ10 supplementation as compared to placebo, indicating that CoQ10 may be beneficial during repeated bouts of supramaximal exercises by enhancing performance. Read More

Market America Mobile and iOS4

Are you currently running iOS4 on your Apple iPhone 3G, 3GS or shiny new iPhone 4? With the recent launch of iOS4, the Apple iPhone added in a number of great new features and enhancements to an already superb phone.

Market America Mobile running iOS4 on the Apple iPhone 4

While I’ve personally tried out iOS4 on my previous iPhone 3G and on my new iPhone 4, I can personally attest that both phones will run differently.  If you have the 3GS model, it runs everything great — minus the improved camera and video capabilities along with the retina display (which is amazing)!

A breakdown by model:

iPhone 3G

  • Create folders for applications (12 applications per folder)
  • Phone feels a little snappier
  • No video recording capabilities
  • No improved camera with flash
  • No retina display
  • No image resizing on the fly

iPhone 3GS

  • Create folders for applications (12 applications per folder)
  • Multi-tasking
  • Phone is fast, but not as fast as the iPhone 4.
