A complete Guide For Parents To choose the Best Toys For their Children

Do you remember how it was when you where a child? What was your main activity? Was it working? Of course not. Your main activity was playing. You had no concerns. You needed toys and your parents where supposed to provide you with them. They had to find toys you wouldn’t throw away and believe me, it wasn’t easy for them.

Now you are a parent and you are in the same situation as your parents years ago. You’re looking for toys that your child will like. That’s why you must know how to choose the right toys. My parents made one common mistake: they would buy me toys that they considered wonderful. But usually, when they would give me the toy, I would either consider it too girlish or too boring. It wasn’t fun for them to see how a toy they bought for me to play with would stay forgotten in my closet.

How to find out what’s the right toy for your child?

Just watch your child closely to determine his preferred activities, skills level, preferred band(s) and movie(s), and so on. Based on these observations you can get a clue on what types of toys your child would prefer. For instance, if your child loves the movie Lord of the Rings, I bet that he’ll also like Lord of the Rings toys…

Now don’t just go into the first toy shop and buy the first Lord of the Rings toy you find. Observations aren’t enough. There are some other very important factors you must consider. Adding them into the equation helps ensure you that your child will have lots of fun with the toy you’ll choose to buy for him.

Here are the factors you must consider when choosing toys for your child:

o Child’s age – This is very important. If you buy toys too advanced for your child’s age, chances are that he might get injured. Toy manufacturers struggle to make their products as safe as possible, but if you don’t follow their recommendations, your child may suffer. On the other hand, if you buy toys made for children with age under that of your child, he will consider them too boring. The best thing is to choose toys designed precisely for your child’s age. Here are two articles that will help you choose toys for babies and toys for toddlers.

o Child’s gender – This is exactly what I said above that my parents bought me toys that i considered to be girlish. I’m a boy, but the same is with girls too. Any detail that may make the toy look as for the other gender than that of your child will make the toy undesired.

o Toys your child’s friends play with – When your child is playing with his friends, watch to find out if he manifests interest in any of his playmate’s toys. If he does, then it’s very likely that he would like to have a toy similar the one his friend has.

o Sometimes, a child tells his parents what toy he likes or wants, thus saving them from a lot of hard work. But don’t count on this. Some children aren’t very keen to talk with parents unless they really want a certain toy.

o Safety – This is the most important factor you must consider whenever you need to decide what toy you should buy for your child. Unfortunately, this is also the most overlooked one. Usually, parents forget to check if the toy they choose for their children are safe.
o Is the toy educational? – It’s a good thing if the toys you choose for your child can help him develop new skills.

And please remember that the age difference between you and your child is of at least 20 years. The fact that you liked a toy when you were a child does not mean that your child will love it too. Children from different generations like different types of toys

Make sure you offer the toy to your child in the appropriate manner!
When you offer the toy to your child, don’t do it in a “Here’s your toy. Now go and play with it” manner. If you do it this way, that toy won’t mean a thing to your child. Rather, try to make a game. Hide the toy somewhere where the child can easily find it, and encourage him to look for it. Laugh with your child, search for it together… And when the he finds the toy, don’t just let him play by himself. Get involved in your child’s play. Make that the fun of a lifetime. A parent is a child’s first and best friend.

Eugen Lisov is the creator of Child-Toys-Guide.com, a site focused on helping parents worldwide to choose the best toys for their children. If you offer your child a bad toy, it’s the same as if you don’t offer your youngster any toy. Please feel free to browse my site; it will only help you when choosing toys for your child..

10 Online Shoe Shopping Tips

Tip #1 – Know Your feet.

The best way to buy shoes that will fit your feet properly is to take their shape into consideration. Do you feet spill out of the sides of most shoe styles? Then try wide-width shoes.

Do you have a problem with gapping on the sides of your shoes? Perhaps a narrow-width shoes will help.

Are your toes short and stubby? Then pointy shoes might not be right for you. Considering the shape of your feet will help you buy great fitting shoes almost every time.

Tip #2 – Take a Hint From the Shoes You Already Own.

Take your favorite pair of shoes and study them. Ask yourself why they fit your foot so well. Is it because the toe is square instead of pointy? Is the material soft and has molded to the shape of your foot?

Once you know why your best fitting pair of shoes fit so well, find shoes that have a similar design or are made from similar materials, and you shouldn’t have too many problems ordering great fitting shoes online.

Tip #3 – Find a Designer Whose Shoes Work for Your.

Most shoe manufacturers and designers tend to cut their shoes consistently. Compile a list of shoe manufactures that make shoes that fit your feet well, and search their online stock for that next great pair of pumps.

Etienne Aigner is one of the shoe manufacturers on my “list”, and whenever I search online for a new pair of shoes, I see what they offer first. Nine times out of ten, their shoes fit my feet like a glove (or perhaps I should say they fit like a sock).

Tip #4 – Are Cheap Shoes Really a Bargain?

Everyone loves a bargain, but are you really saving money by buying those $39. 95 pleather pumps that hurt your feet and looked trashed after only wearing them a few times. Instead of buying cheap shoes for little money, its better to buy quality shoes on sale. With proper care, quality shoes will feel and look good for years.

Tip #5 – Try on In a Store then Buy Online.

I love to scout out a great pair of shoes at the local mall and them buy them online for less. No tax, and free shipping will make almost any pair of shoes cheaper if you buy it online.

Tip #6 – Shop at Reputable Online Shoe Stores.

Make sure to buy from reputable online shoe merchants that have clearly marked return policies and secure web sites.

Tip #7 – Read Online Shoe Reviews.

Many web sites feature product reviews written by customers. Shoe Reviews will give you an idea of the fit and quality of the shoes reviewed.

Tip #8 – Keep Hosiery & Socks In mind.

When you’re buying a new pair of shoes, keep the kind of hosiery or socks you intend to wear with your new shoes in mind. For example, if you are buying a pair of boots to wear in bad weather, you might want to wear a warm, thick pair of socks with them. So buy the boots a size larger to accommodate the socks.

Tip #9 – Can you Walk in Those Heels?

If you’ve never worn a pair of 4 inch stiletto heeled pumps before, its best to try a pair on at a brick and mortar store before you buy them on line.

Tip #10 – Don’t Spend more Then you can Afford.

Just because those $325 dollar Bruno Magli Nazli Pumps are just a click and a credit card away, don’t spend more than you can afford. Believe me, I know how addictive online shoe shopping can be!

Follow these ten easy online shoe shopping tips, and you’ll be shoe shopping online like a pro. Best of all, you’ll rarely, if ever, have to return a pair of shoes you bought online again.

eBay’s New Pay to promote Your Shop System – And Why You could be Pouring Money Down the Drain

eBay is installing a new feature that lets you promote your Shop alongside listings returned when someone searches for specific products through the company’s search engines. This means, for example, if someone searches for CD cases and you have an eBay shop specialising in CD cases, then your promotion can be shown alongside appropriate listings from eBay’s search engine. It works a bit like Google’s AdWords where you only pay when someone clicks on your promotion and you bid alongside other advertisers up to the maximum amount you are prepared to pay per click.

There are three things that put me off using the new system right now:

1) The system is not easy to understand and I found no way to locate decision-making information without actually signing up to the offer. And once I sign up I could find myself bombarded with offers to increase my spend on keywords used to trigger my promotions. And it’s sometimes hard to refuse, like AdWords there’s always the temptation to spend a little more for promises of more traffic and greater profits. Only…

2) Like AdWords you could find the system sometimes costs more than it will ever generate in profits.

3) There are many far more effective ways to generate traffic to your eBay Shop that cost absolutely nothing! Hence the reason this article focuses on ways to promote your eBay Shop for free.

Those of you marketing elsewhere online will be pleased to know these techniques work just as well for driving traffic to virtually any type of Internet presence as they do at getting people to visit your eBay Shop.

Techniques listed here work long term, meaning they are best used to drive traffic to your Shop front or to product categories but not to individual products in your Shop or auction and buy It Now listings which might quickly disappear from ebay and waste all your valuable traffic.

Let me take you through a handful of many easy ways to promote your eBay Shop totally free of charge:

* Search engine optimise your eBay Shop to respond to searches outside of eBay by using words in Shop names and categories, also long term product listings, which resemble those words and phrases people actually key into search engines to locate products such as you are selling. Carefully optimised ebay sites often rank top of Google and other search engine listings even for short term auction listings. That’s because Google and other search engines are quick to list properly search engine optimised pages on high ranking sites like ebay. So you’ll need to add high frequency keywords, those that are keyed most often into search engines, to your Shop name, product categories and product listings. Determine what those words are by visiting freekeywords.wordtracker.com and key words into the search box that describe your product. WordTracker will provide a list of phrases that feature your keyword suggestion along with the number of times those searches take place each day. You should use highest frequency – as long as they are also appropriate – key words and phrases in your Shop and product category names, also long term product listings titles.

Here’s another way to choose effective keywords to help your Shop rank high in outside eBay search engine returns. Go to Google and key in words to describe your product, use a lot of different suggestions and take your time carrying out this exercise. Check listings returned organically by Google, namely those on the main list and not including AdWords promotions. Look for eBay listings, look through the first five or six pages or so and take time to study ebay sellers concerned. Look for reasons why they rank high, study Shop names, category listing names, listing titles, descriptions, and so on. Then use similar words to search engine optimise your Shop. Be careful not to copy trademarks and copyright items or you could be expelled from eBay.

* Write articles about the kind of products you sell on eBay and link back to your ebay Shop or individual product categories and long term product listings. Incoming links from high ranking article directories like Ezine Articles can grow your search engine ranking even if no one ever reads your article. As an example, if I have an ebay Shop selling pet foods and health products, I could write short articles about specific types of pet, individual breeds, the many aspects of caring for a pet, various ailments common to specific animals, and so on. At the end of each article I’d say something like ‘Avril Harper is the owner of SHOP NAME and prides herself on providing top quality food and healthcare products for all popular species of pet, and some unusual ones also. Go to shop URL for everything you need to help your pet live a long, happy and healthy life. ‘

* Start a blog focusing on the overall theme of your Shop or a specific product category. Give it a name that reflects your product type and try to post to your blog at least two or three times a week with each post hyperlinked to your eBay Shop front or individual product categories and long standing product listings. Regular posts and backlinks from high profile blogging platforms like Blogger and WordPress help raise your site in search engine rankings. Here’s another good tip: make your blog interesting and the longer people spend reading your posts, also the more return visits you get, the higher your blog will appear in search engine returns and consequently the greater the number of people who eventually visit your shop.

* Visit forums populated by people likely to be interested in your products. In my pet shop case I might visit forums populated by dog lovers or people with pets suffering specific problems such as epilepsy, for example. Spend a few days reading what other people say and get a feel for the kind of products that might satisfy their needs. These can be products you already stock in your eBay Shop or you might obtain a few items you think might appeal to forum members. Once ‘accepted’ by fellow members, meaning you did not begin marketing to them the minute you joined the forum, you can begin offering tips and product recommendations and giving your Shop url as the location for buying those items. Some people suggest this type of blatant self-promotion is less profitable than using a fictitious ID for the forum, but if you choose that latter option you must be very careful to keep your real identity secret. Find forums by searching Google for ‘forum + subject’, where ‘subject’ is the focus of the forum, such as ‘forum + dog + epilepsy’ for forums such as I visit.

* Do write-ups about the theme of your eBay Shop, also individual products, at social media sites like Digg, Stumbleupon, Youtube and Facebook, with your Shop url hyperlinked somewhere prominent.

Grocery shopping Tips to save in Everyday Spending

To begin this journey and use these grocery savings tips, be sure that you include nutritionally-dense and lower-cost foods on your grocery shopping list. This creates a “lavish cheapskate’s” win/win to fit your household budget, your grocery savings, and your health.

We’ve kept this very simple with frugal footsteps so you can overcome all the typical “money traps” that can lure you into spending more than you need to.

Simply use these grocery shopping tips and you will automatically avoid these spending pitfalls…

There are 5 Frugal Steps To Using a Grocery Shopping list

1. Choose foods that are highly nutritional and low cost to your grocery shopping list.

2. Price per ounce/serving on everything.

3. Avoid coupons as your grocery savings tool.

4. Cut back your trips to the grocery store to once a month.

5. Turn Your Freezer into Grocery Savings.

Let’s Take a look at Each of the 5 Steps…

1. Choose low-cost, highly nutritional foods…

By adding whole foods such as beans, wild rice, brown rice, and other whole staples to your grocery shopping list, you avoid the lures that Grocery stores put out their to bait shoppers into purchasing higher-cost items. Manufacturers pay grocery stores to “position food on the shelves” so that they are at eye-level knowing this is the best spot to entice more sales (they place snacks kids love at the child’s eye-level as well). By using a list of highly nutritious foods, you will naturally avoid these lures.

2. Price everything per ounce or serving…

By pricing per ounce or serving consistently, you automatically set yourself up to cut back each time you go back to the grocery store to replenish your groceries. This cuts back time in the grocery store, and it shifts your focus to “savings” rather than spending. End result? More money in your piggy bank and more money for wealth leveraging!

3. Avoid Coupons as your grocery savings tool…

To maximize your profits by using a grocery shopping list, avoid coupons. This will deter you from sticking to the list. If you do come across a coupon on a product you normally buy, then use it. The reason you want to avoid them is most coupons are “spending stimulation tickets” that manufacturers put out to entice increased sales for their brands.

4. Cut back your trips to the grocery store to once a month…

That may seem like a big leap, but once you use frugal footsteps, you will discover using these footsteps is much easier. They will save you time, money, and provide you with a simple way of living.

5. Turn Your Freezer into Grocery Savings…

Whenever meats, frozen vegetables, or any freezer-made foods go on sale, bulk up! Use the freezer to cut back on trips to the grocery store and to buy foods in bulk. This, once again, cuts back on time wasted in the grocery store and puts a stop to impulsive spending. Another way to use the freezer is using the frugal footstep in meal planning. You can visit our site for more details on meal planning to find out how to use this simple concept to cut way back on cooking time and unnecessary expenses, such as eating out, additional trips to buy more food, etc.

Various Tips to Remember When Buying Luxury Lingerie

More and more people have started shopping for luxury lingerie both online and in local stores. Women buy it for their own wardrobe in order to feel special, sexier and more attractive. Men buy it as a present for their loved ones to make their partners feel more special, while also spicing up their intimate moments. Bridesmaids also often shop for designer lingerie to give as a gift to their brides. There are a lot of options to choose from, from silk lingerie to lace underwear so it can be quite overwhelming to shop for a set. Here are some important tips to remember when shopping for lingerie that is luxurious and stylish.

For a Women Shopping for Lingerie for Herself

There are many reasons for a woman to buy lingerie. It could be to prepare for a romantic date, or simply because she wants to feel sexy and beautiful from the inside out. When selecting which luxury lingerie to buy, women must put comfort as a top priority. Nobody else, especially a man, may see the difference between satin and silk lingerie, but if a woman is not comfortable with the material of the lingerie she is wearing then her partner will surely sense it. That is why it is important to only purchase items that a woman can wear confidently. The choices would come in different colours and styles so a woman will not run out of items to choose from.

For Men Buying Lingerie for their Partners

Men have also started shopping for lingerie in order to give their wives or partners a special present for particular occasions. This is such a thoughtful gesture, but a lot of men often do not know where to start looking. First thing that a man should do is to pay attention to what their partners wear and in what size, in order to find out whether she likes wearing luxury lingerie that is revealing or not. There are women who like wearing lace underwear while some prefer wearing cotton or satin pieces. This should be a special gift, therefore men should make sure that they are buying something that their partners would love to wear.

For men who are embarrassed to visit local lingerie boutiques can instead shop at online stores. Here, they can shop in complete privacy, have the lingerie gift wrapped elegantly and shipped to their doorsteps. They can even ask for a gift receipt to be included in the present so that their partners will be able to return or exchange the product in case it is not quite right, but without the need for the women to know how much the lingerie costs. This is quite important because a lot of men forget to check the sizes for women.

For Bridesmaids Looking for Something Special for the Bride

Every bridesmaid wants to be of assistance to her sister, cousin, friend or relative who is getting married. A good way to make her feel extra special is by helping her shop for luxury lingerie that she can possibly use on her wedding night. It can be a fun activity for the bridesmaid and the bride to go shopping for lingerie together. However, if the bridesmaid is shopping for lingerie and give it as a surprise, there are a few things she can keep in mind when shopping. The key is to keep the personality of the bride in mind when choosing the perfect lingerie to give her as a gift. If she is outgoing and liberated then perhaps red silk lingerie or black underwear will suit her. If she is more reserved, she might like lingerie that is in neutral colours.

It is actually easier to shop for luxury lingerie than it looks. People who want to buy a set for themselves can shop on their own, while those who are looking to give lingerie as a present never have to be left clueless about what to buy. The available options are endless, from silk lingerie to leather underwear, so people will certainly find something they like even if they have with different tastes and styles. Any woman will certainly feel very luxurious and extra special when they wear designer lingerie.

Mens Guide to buying Diamond Jewelry As a Gift

Buying diamond jewelry can seem intimidating at first for a man who many not be all that familiar with diamonds. There are lots of fancy words about cut, carat, color, and letters and numbers that symbolize different grades. When purchasing diamond jewelry, there are a few key points to keep in mind that will help make the process simpler.

The first step is to consider what type of jewelry. There are different options available ranging from earrings, rings, necklaces, bracelets and brooches. No matter which one you choose, it will be important to keep her personality in mind. Buying a gift that the recipient will enjoy wearing is far more important than the clarity of the diamond.

Earrings can be a great gift for women of all ages. If she does not own any diamond earrings already, start with some diamond stud earrings. They can be worn with anything and are a great addition to any jewelry box. They come in various size diamonds as well. If you are uncertain which size to purchase, 1/3CT is a good place to start. If she already has some basic diamond earrings, there are many sorts of hoops and dangles available as well, depending on your budget. Earrings can seem expensive, since you are buying at least one diamond per ear.

Diamond rings do not necessarily have to be an engagement ring. There are plenty of right hand diamond rings available. These are usually made up of several diamonds and they are often in various shapes. They can be set in gold, silver, or platinum and the prices can vary. If you are interested in purchasing a right hand diamond ring, consider whether or not she already wears any other rings. If she wears a yellow gold ring on her left hand, a white gold or sterling silver ring would not match as well as another yellow gold ring. If the recipient’s ring size is unknown, the ring can be purchased in a stock size and re-sized at a later date.

Diamond necklaces are a great option. They can vary greatly from a single solitaire diamond or many diamonds can be put together to create fancy shapes such as hearts or bows. Diamonds in necklaces are often paired with colored gemstones as well. When purchasing a diamond necklace, determine if you are purchasing a necklace that can be worn with some more casual clothing or if it will be a fancy necklace that is only meant to be worn with a gown.

Bracelets make a beautiful gift. Diamond tennis bracelets are a sparkly, but pricey option. Diamond bracelets can also just include a single solitaire diamond. Bracelets often come in various wrist sizes which can usually be adjusted after purchase if necessary.

A diamond brooch can make a good option for a slightly less formal gift or for someone who already has a good collection of diamond jewelry. Diamond brooches can be pinned to jackets or a sweater and can be a fun addition to any outfit.

When purchasing diamond jewelry, the technical aspects of the diamond, such as cut and color, are important, but they are less important than the overall piece of the jewelry. Look at the big picture and ensure that the piece you are purchasing looks like something the recipient would like to wear. Spend less time focusing on the smaller details and do not attempt to become a diamond expert overnight.

Find out her birthstone and look for pieces that incorporate it into the setting.

Electron-Ness: Why Are all Electrons Identical?

Go to your local store and buy several items of the same product – say a package of three golf balls. Though the golf balls appear identical, closer examination will reveal ever so slight differences. One ball maybe fractionally larger; another ever so slightly less spherical; perhaps the third is ever so slightly lighter. The generality that extends from this is that any two seemingly identical products will have nevertheless slight variations in their properties.

Now buy a packet of three electrons (or their antimatter equivalent, the positron). Each electron, or positron, will be identical in size, mass and electric charge to as many decimal places as you care to measure. All electrons (and positrons) are 100% absolutely identical clones.

Take one electron and one positron and bring them together. They annihilate releasing a fixed amount of energy. Take another electron and another positron and repeat the scenario. The pair will annihilate releasing an identical amount of energy in the process. The amount of energy released in each electron-positron annihilation case is the same, to as many decimal places as you can measure. That’s quite unlike taking a match from a box of matches, striking same and releasing its stored chemical energy as heat energy. Another match from the same box wouldn’t release, to as many decimal places as you care to measure, the absolutely identical amount of heat energy.

How come identical golf balls aren’t but identical electrons (or positrons) are?

Electrons (or positrons), having mass, can be created from energy (just like mass can be converted to energy as in the case of the electron-positron annihilation process). You (human intelligence) can’t create identical golf balls, but a seemingly non-intelligent natural process (Mother nature by any other name) can create or produce copies of a fundamental particle, like an electron (or positron), that are clones of one another down to the nittiest-grittiest detail.

Even with quantum mechanics in force, you’d think energy could create or be converted into an electron with twice the standard electron mass or twice the electric charge, or thrice even. But no. You see one electron you’ve seen them all – every electron that is, was or will be, anywhere, everywhere, anytime, every time in our Universe. Electrons, like Black Holes, have no hair. That means they have no individual personality. In fact Black Holes can be said to have some fuzz because they can and do differ in terms of size, mass and electric charge. Electrons have the exact same size, mass and electric charge, so absolutely no hair! Relative to Black Holes, electrons (and positrons) are absolutely bald!

Invoking all things quantum is still a bit of a cop-out in that while quantum means things are this or that, one unit or two, one energy level or two energy levels, there’s no explanation as to why it’s only one or two, not one & a half. It just is, but why remains a mystery.

Why are all electrons (and positrons) identical?

1) Of course THE cop-out answer is that that’s just the way God wanted it and no correspondence will be entered into regarding the matter.

Unfortunately, there is no real evidence for the existence of any deity past and/or present that stands up to any detailed scrutiny.

2) One could resort to an explanation via string theory merged with quantum physics. String theory just replaces elementary particles as little billiard balls for elementary little bits of string (albeit not string as we know it). Now maybe, as in all things quantum, these strings can be one unit in length, or two units, or three units, or four units, etc. Any positive whole number multiple of one string length is okay. Now say that a two length unit of string is an electron. A two unit length of anti-string is therefore a positron.

Or, one can suggest that strings vibrate and can only vibrate at specific frequencies as any musician playing a stringed instrument knows. So, a string vibrating at one allowed frequency is an electron; if it vibrates at another allowable frequency maybe that’s a proton or a neutron. Again, a vibrating anti-matter string would produce manifestations of the antimatter particles, a positron being dependent upon one of the allowable vibrating frequencies.

Of the two possibilities, it’s the vibration rate theory that’s preferred. All strings are of the same fundamental length – their rate of vibration can differ, but at precise intervals. What causes strings to vibrate at the rate they do, and how they can change rates of vibration (morph from one kind of particle into others) are questions better left for another time.

Unfortunately, string theory has no credibility in terms of any actual experimental evidence, and, to add insult to injury, it requires the postulation of ten to eleven dimensions in order to fit the pieces together. If string theory gets some experimental runs on the board then, and only then, will it be time to take strings seriously.

3) Well, one other possible explanation is that all electrons are absolutely identical because there is only one electron in actual existence. If you see the same object twice, thrice of a zillion times over, then it’s the same object and the fact that it is consistently identical is not a great mystery. But how can the Universe contain only one electron? That seems to be the least obvious statement anyone could ever make – the statement of a total wacko.

Well, one explanation goes something like this. Our one electron has zipped back and forth between the Alpha and Omega points again, and again, and again. Now multiply ‘again’ by zillions upon zillions upon zillions of times. When you take a cross section at any ‘now’ point in time between the Alpha and the Omega, there will be zillions upon zillions upon zillions of electrons visible ‘now’. Simple, isn’t it?

Unfortunately, while there is no violation of physical laws at the micro level in travelling through time (apart from going forward at a rate of one second per second which we do whether we like it or not), no exact causality mechanism has been proposed to explain how and why an elementary particle shifts gear into time reverse (or forward again).

Back to the original question, why are all electrons identical? Or not, as the case may be.

4) Perhaps in other parallel universes, ones that have different physics, all electrons (if they have electrons at all) might not be identical. That possibility is akin to asking about numbers of angels dancing on pinheads. There’s just no way of ever knowing since parallel universes are beyond the reach of science as we know it.

But say each member of the particle zoo weren’t identical to every other member in kind. Say electrons came in a thousand variations of mass and electric charge; ditto the other elementary particles. You’d have a particle jungle. If that were the case, presumably it would prove to be very difficult to create identical atoms of the elements and identical molecular compounds and ultimately it would prove difficult to build up the structure of our Universe as we know it, including us. An analogy might be that it’s far easier to assemble a ten piece jigsaw puzzle and one with a billion pieces. Our particle zoo seems to be a Goldilocks zoo – not too many particles and variations thereof; not to few either (I mean a universe composed of just identical electrons is equally as bad for life as we know it). Of course if that – the Goldilocks particle zoo – weren’t so, we wouldn’t be here to ponder the issue.

Moving on up the chain, assuming all members of the particle zoo are identical then atoms of any particular element must be identical – if you’ve seen one gold atom, you’ve seen them all (though owning them all is quite a different matter). If elements come in different isotopes, then all the specific isotope atoms of that element are identical.

Further moving on up the chain, if identical atoms combine with other different identical atoms, then presumably the resulting molecules will be identical. While that’s true, it’s only true up to a point, because eventually you can get molecules that while seemingly identical, have handedness. That is, your hands, while identical, aren’t identical because one has a left-handed orientation; the other has a right-handed orientation. That’s the point things start to fall apart or break down.

That apart, macro objects, like golf balls, are composed of millions of atoms and/or molecules. If a golf ball has one more, or one less molecule than another, well the two aren’t identical.

5) Introducing the maths connection: Here, there and everywhere, on a flat surface, the shortest distance between two points is a straight line; triangles have a sum total 180 degrees; 2 + 2 = 4. In each case, it is so to as many decimal places as you care to calculate. Every 7 is identical to every other 7 – no more and no less. That’s true whether or not one is dealing with base ten, or in binary (base two).

So what’s the connection? All computer generated simulations, in whatever context, for whatever purpose, are ultimately software programs, which in turn are just mathematical constructions. All you see are ultimately expressions of maths, of binary bits, of 0’s and 1’s, something on or off. So if you simulate some object using binary software programming, and you create another object using the exact same binary software coding, then those two virtual objects are identical. Now, call what you have simulated, ‘electrons’. So if all electrons are identical, maybe it’s because they are mathematical constructions – the end products of computer software/programming.

In simulations, virtual objects can interact with other virtual objects (more mathematical wizardry). Change happens. Well, that’s what we observe in our reality too. The question is, is our reality really real reality, or simulated reality? Are our electrons identical because each is the product of an identical piece of binary software programming? That may not ultimately be the answer, but it’s an answer. Electrons are the same since they are all constructed from the same mathematical whole cloth of binary bits – of 0’s and 1’s.

Discussion: One may argue that there are indeed differences between electrons (and positrons), we just haven’t measured to enough decimal places yet. While that might be true, I personally wouldn’t want to bet on it.

Conclusion: I started out with the question of why all electrons are identical. The answer is, I don’t know and neither, I suspect does anyone else. However, the foundation of physics (itself the foundation for the other sciences) is grounded in maths, and maths, as noted above, has no problem with the concept. All identical equations yield identical results; the ‘equals’ sign itself demands identicalness. Perhaps maths has more fundamental ‘reality’ than anyone has given it credit for. That’s certainly the case if we should happen to be inhabiting a software generated, simulated Universe

Postscript: The concept of identicalness can bring us into some weird scientific and philosophical territory. Two people examining the same object will not agree to the Nth degree that the object under consideration is the exact same object, an identical object, when compared from each person’s perspective. Perception is ultimately a function of brain chemistry and no two people have the exact same brain chemistry due to various factors like genetics, age, physiology, disease, fatigue, and/or intakes of various solid, liquid and gaseous elements and compounds that directly affect brain chemistry. The differences may be really tiny and nitpicky but nevertheless present. To take another case, if three court stenographers all record and transcribe a days worth of testimony, no doubt there will be (ever so) slight differences in the final three versions.

Even the same person experiencing the same object or event a second, third, etc. time – say watching a film again or listening to a CD track again, won’t have identical experiences, again due to the internal brain chemistry being slightly different on each occasion. That’s apart from the fact that external influences like temperature, humidity, pressure, and general wear and tear (entropy) all affect that object or event and the environment between that object/event and the person experiencing the object/event. Those external factors also change from moment to moment.

People though tend to agree (brain chemistry not withstanding) on what an independent umpire says about an object or event – the independent umpire being an instrument or measuring device. Instruments are of course also subject to external influences, but aren’t affected by brain chemistry – they have no brains.

Jewelry Boxes in Endless Variety

Collecting jewelry boxes can be fun and interesting encompassing everything from famous people to different eras in our history. A collection can focus on ancient Egypt with beautiful wood boxes with mother of pearl inlaid in rectangular and octagon shapes or a hand painted cast metal box with scarabs and lotus.

Most are lined with velvet of a coordinating color. A fun collection would be one of Disney characters with the most popular ones being Tinker Bell and Cinderella. There are jewelry boxes shaped like the Cinderella castle that open with a drawbridge. Imagine a shelf of jewelry boxes with all the Disney princesses and a castle. That would be a beautiful and fun display in any room.

Like animals? A cute green turtle jewelry box or an elephant or a dolphin jewelry box all can begin a great collection of sea animals or African animals. Maybe you would like a collection with various animal patterns such as snakeskin and leopard spots? Do you have a friend that collects lighthouses? A jewelry box in the shape of a lighthouse or a fine wooden box with a beautiful painting of a lighthouse on the shore with waves lapping at the rocks can be a meaningful gift to a collector.

A collection of jewelry boxes does not have to be the large boxes we normally see on dressers that have hooks for necklaces and drawers for rings. There are trinket boxes that usually range in size from an egg to a coffee cup. These can be made of wood, metals, plastic and even box materials. The lids either left off or up or slide to one side and are often the most decorative part of the trinket box. These are a great collection starter for a child due to their size and cost.

Some people collect based on the material the jewelry box is made from or the decorations on the box whether it is carved wood or inlaid mother of pearl on the lid. Others collect based on the designer or manufacturer. A collection of any type can reflect your personality and provide you with pleasure and satisfaction.

Remember that little pink jewelry/music box with the ballerina that popped up and danced to a love song? I wonder how much mine would be worth in a collection or even more, what it would be worth to my granddaughter if she had it sitting on her dresser?

WHAT AND WHY TO CHOOSE FROM ONLINE SHOPPING SITES?

Fashion, especially women’s clothing is an indispensable part of our lives, without which we are not complete.
