Covering Textured Paint

Textured paint gives smooth walls color and depth at the same time, often eliminating the need for separate applications of wall texture and pigment. Unfortunately, the bumpy surface makes it difficult to paper over at a later date. Whether you want to remodel the walls to provide smooth, painted surfaces or apply wallpaper, proper preparation is necessary to bring the walls back to their original, smooth form.

Remove any nails or other hardware from your textured walls. Scoot all items of furniture and other movable fixtures to the center of the room and cover them with large drop-cloths. Close the door to keep sanded paint particles from entering other areas of your home. Open any windows to help remove airborne particles from your work environment.

Use a hand-held power sander with medium-grit sandpaper to knock off the rough particles of texture on the walls. Start sanding in an upper corner, working your way across and down, until you reach the opposite corner near the floor. Move quickly over the walls to avoid creating depressions and gouges in the surface of the walls.

Buff the sanded walls with a fine-grit sandpaper to create a smoother finish that leaves no sign of bumps, dents or ridges. Avoid sanding into the wallboard behind the textured paint. Run your fingertips over the wall to feel for any invisible differences in elevation. Although these are hard to see, painting or papering over surface variations will draw attention to the differences.

Brush the walls with a clean, dry towel to remove the dust covering. Vacuum and dust the room to remove the fine layer of paint particles from surfaces. Examine the smoothed walls for scratches or gouges. Fill these in with a smear of wallboard joint compound using a putty knife. Allow the compound adequate time to dry, according to the label instructions. Sand down the edges of any patches to create a smooth, even surface. Wipe the sanded walls with a piece of tack cloth to pick up any remaining dust particles and lint.

Trump Administration Threatens Net Neutrality

Tom Wheeler, the previous chairman of the FCC, utilized his last public speaking engagement before leaving office to caution organizations and buyers that their choice of cloud services and business applications could be extremely constrained if the approaching organization strikes down the 2015 open internet arrangement that he and his team set up. This request situated the FCC’s unhindered internet control that keeps Internet Service Providers from abating or blocking activity on their systems. This gives all activity level with circumstance and speed and counteracts arrange bias.

Wheeler additionally demonstrated sympathy toward the Internet of Things, a territory of financial development that is rapidly getting to be distinctly top of brain to numerous organizations and strategy creators in Washington.

“[T]he development of the web of things is another territory that relies on upon the open network of those things,” Wheeler said. “On the off chance that ISPs can choose subjectively which IoT gadget can be associated, or support their own IoT action over their rivals, the splendid eventual fate of IoT diminishes.” Wheeler proceeded, “As everything goes into the cloud, the capacity to get to the cloud free of guardians is basic. In the event that ISPs get the chance to pick which applications and mists work superior to anything others as far as get to, speed and dormancy, they will control the cloud future,”.
Wheeler’s position may not be an unexpected now but rather given his past as a lobbyist for the link and remote area his support of internet fairness may come as a stun.

Bill Wilson, an expert for BBL, Broadband Landing, stated, “Wheeler might underplay the earnestness of the circumstance. Internet fairness is the greatest arrangement that nobody truly gets it. On the off chance that customers and private companies really acknowledged what the web would look like after it was purchased and sold by substantial partnerships that was be stressed. This would be every one of that was being discussed.”

Wheeler has a similar question numerous organizations do, specifically will Trump disassemble an arrangement that is unmistakably working? With republicans straightforwardly contradicted to internet fairness things do appear to be desperate for the approach.

Wheeler’s discourse not just goes about as a notice to the approaching organization additionally unmistakably endeavors to extend the extent of the internet fairness wrangle all in all. Shopper effect of the open web request is quite often the lead in any talk of internet fairness yet here Wheeler’s concentration was on the threat to organizations and their expanding utilization of distributed computing. Interference or the moderating of these administrations is more damaging than a video playing moderate. Organizations may be required to totally change back office administration frameworks. An organization like could have their client base separated between clients that have an ISP that permits their activity and ISP’s that won’t. Circumstances of this sort could be rehashed crosswise over numerous business administrations. On the off chance that AT&T purchases a firm that gives CMS to deals and advertising bunches, it is not unfathomable that they would demonstrate inclination to this firm over others.

Wheeler particularly gets out Verizon and AT&T for the “zero rating” programs that give a few organizations free access by not charging clients for the information they utilize. While this isn’t the dreaded “Fast track” unhindered internet has been attempting to stay away from, it might really be more regrettable.

Wheeler completed his discourse with, “It now tumbles to another arrangement of controllers, to another FCC and to the individuals who advocate before it and the Congress to decide the street that they need to take from here,” Wheeler said. “We are at a fork in that street. One way leads forward and alternate leads back to relitigating arrangements that are certifiably working.”

While the byway similarity fits, it’s really more extraordinary than Wheeler makes it appear. One street leads forward and alternate leads back 10 years and afterward off a precipice into a gap loaded with crocs.

Decorating Either Side of a Wall-Mount TV

Many homeowners struggle with how to decorate around a wall-mounted TV. It is important to find a decorative style that does not conflict with the overall theme of the room. But you should also choose a style that does not distract the eye while watching television. The decoration options are limited by the size of the TV and the mounting height.


Use tall floor speakers. Speakers come in a variety of shapes and heights. Tie the TV to the floor by placing a credenza, floating shelves or media storage center below it. Some people mount their TVs over a fireplace. Choose the solution that leaves a maximum of between 6 and 12 inches of space below the TV. Place the speakers on either side of the TV to give it an entertainment center feel. Paint metal wire covers to match the wall and hide the wires to keep the design clean. The speakers may be placed on top of the floor anchor piece to match the height of the TV if necessary.

Use lamps to accent the sides of the TV. Place tall floor lamps or mount lamps on the wall on both sides of the TV. Use a floor anchor piece to complete the desired look. You may also use tabletop lamps if the floor anchor piece permits it.

Use framed pictures to decorate the wall beside the TV. Avoid using frames of the same shape and size as the TV. Use several small, square frames on just one side, for example. Use long, vertical frames on both sides to give the TV an enclosed look. Use this technique in conjunction with a floor anchor piece for added visual effect.

Place plants on either side of the wall-mounted TV. Use tall floor plants or set the plants on the piece that anchors the TV to the floor. Plants work better than flowers because bright colors tend to draw the eye away from the TV, which may become distracting when watching a program.

I Just Learned That Snapchat Can Be Hacked

I was looking around on the internet the other day and I ran across this article which was talking about the top ten snapchat hack programs. I was surprised that this sort of thing was openly available, so I tried to research how the laws looked at something like that. Obviously technology is always going to be in front of the law, there is always going to be some new thing that is not quite covered by existing laws. At the same time laws about electronic eavesdropping vary a lot from state to state. The main concept that you find when you look into these things is ownership and that makes a lot of sense when you think about it. For example if you record a conversation it makes a huge difference where you do it. Specifically something that would be illegal in another person’s home, might be legal in your own home.

Old Metal Brought to Life

I get a lot of ideas from the do it yourself channels on a video sharing site. People take scrap parts and make all kinds of creations. I had the idea of making a walking mechanical dinosaur just for fun. I looked at some scrap metal prices and bought some sheets to complete my project. I had a design planned out on paper of how I wanted the dinosaur to look. Coming up with the frame for the dinosaur was easy, but figuring out how to place the electronic components on the inside was a harder task. Everything had to be aligned just right for the dinosaur to be able to walk without falling over.

I scavenged some motors from devices that I found at the thrift store. People get rid of old printers all the time, and the store sells them for a cheap price. The same goes for old VCRs, since people mostly stream their movies over the Internet and don’t need them anymore. Continue reading →

Caught This Guy Snooping on His Girlfriend

I was in the library the other day and I happened to notice this guy across the table from me. I had a class with him, but I did not really know him that well, however I realized that he was using some sort of kik spy program to spy on this girl. He had apparently hidden it in an email that appeared to be from It seemed more than a little creepy to me, but of course it really was not that much by business. I was quite curious as to how it worked. Continue reading →

Setting Up My New PC

I have been working on my new computer for a week now. It is not anything special really, but it is quite an upgrade from the computer that my Mom and Dad gave me while I was still in high school. Of course it is nice to be able to play modern video games, my old computer did not really have much of a video card in it. I am finally up and running. Right now I am moving stuff from the old PC to the new one. Stuff like figuring out the sign in and stuff like that. In all I only have about four hundred dollars in this computer.

Took a Look a Conversion Project

A friend of mine called me up the other day and tried to gauge my interest in this project that he was considering. He was looking at this industrial building which had about 2500 sq. ft of floorspace. However the roof was thirty feet high and he was planning to add a second story. To be precise he wanted to know what I would think I would charge him for the job. It had some problems obviously. The building had asphalt roofing which had to be replaced, meaning that you had to remove everything that was on the roof and replace the lot of it. If you are lucky with such a roof then you can just put a new coat of asphalt on top of the old roof, but that had already been done as many times as you could safely do it. Obviously a roof or any other structure has a load capacity which can not be safely exceeded. Continue reading →

32 Easy Ways to Get Rid Of Diarrhea Instantly at Home

Diarrhea Treatment is Easy

Diarrhea occurs when stools become loose and go often without any consistency. It is an effective way to remove the unwanted substances from the body. The symptoms are vomiting, stomach pain, consistent thirst, fever, nausea or even dehydration. The results are potentially dangerous in children as well as in people older than 65 years. There is loss in fluid of the body by vomiting that needs to be replaced. Diarrhea, in most cases, is a symptom of another problem. It is caused by food poisoning due to bacteria and food allergies. It may also be caused due to the excess alcohol consumption, laxatives or caffeine.

It can be cured with the help of some natural remedies without obstructing the work of our immune system. Our body uses diarrhea to remove the bacteria or viruses that we might have taken while eating. Stopping diarrhea very soon is not a good idea. However, when it comes for several days then dehydration and loss of several important nutrients from the body can be dangerous.
Causes of Diarrhea

Diarrhea is an intestinal dysfunction that causes frequent and liquid or semi-liquid stools, and abdominal pain with loss of fluids and minerals vital to the body.

Diarrhea can be caused by:

Contaminated water or spoiled food
Food allergy
Antibiotics or other medications
Excess alcohol
Excessive use of laxatives
Lactose intolerance
Parasitic infection
Extreme stress
Organic bowel diseases (eg Crohn ulcerative colitis).

Some Precautions to be taken

Drink lots of water, as a measure of first aid to avoid dehydration due to loss of fluid and minerals.

Avoid foods such as pears, peaches, plums, beans, cabbage and Brussels sprouts, as they make the stools soft which make the diarrhea continue.

Check if you suffer from lactose intolerance If suffer from diarrhea every time you drink milk, it can be a lactose intolerance. To be certain, you should refrain completely from consuming dairy products for one to two weeks. If diarrhea stops, then use milk products gradually. If the diarrhea starts again, you can confirm lactose intolerance. In this case, you should avoid most dairy products except yogurt and some aged cheeses such as cheddar.

Check your medicines, as some can cause diarrhea. Example: Antacids, because they contain magnesium which can cause diarrhea. If you suffer from this condition, you should try antacids containing only aluminum hydroxide without magnesium. You need to consult a doctor if you suspect other drugs to be the cause.

Medical care is must in the following cases:

Infants and young children
Diarrhea that persists for more than three consecutive days.
A fever accompanied by diarrhea, abdominal cramps, vomiting, jaundice (yellowing of the skin and whites of the eyes) or extreme weakness.
Diarrhea that has blood, pus or mucus in stool.


Tip: To prevent diarrhea known as “traveler’s diarrhea”, when you go to foreign countries, instead of drinking regular water, drink carbonated water. It makes water acidic enough to kill microorganisms that cause diarrhea.

Home remedies for Diarrhea
1) Orange peel tea

The orange peel tea is another effective home remedy to control symptoms associated with diarrhea. To make a cup of orange peel tea, you should wash the orange well to remove any traces of pesticides, then remove peel and cut into pieces. Place the chopped orange peel in half a cup of boiling water and let stand for some time. Once it has cooled, add a little honey or sugar to sweeten. This tea will help in the digestion process. You can drink this tea two or three times a day.

2) Chamomile

Chamomile is often used in the treatment of various intestinal disorders, including diarrhea. The high amount of tannins present in the herb can relieve the symptoms of diarrhea. To make chamomile tea, put a teaspoon of chamomile flowers and a teaspoon of mint leaves in a cup of boiling water. Let stand for about fifteen minutes. Take this herbal tea at least three times a day to speed up the healing process.

3) Blueberries

Blueberries contain an element known as anthocyanins, which have antioxidant and antibacterial properties. Blueberries also contain plenty of pectin, soluble fiber that can help a lot in treating the symptoms associated with diarrhea. The best option is to chew dried cranberries several times a day. This will kill any germs causing diarrhea. You can also make a cup of tea, boiling dried and crushed cranberries in a cup of water for about ten minutes. Drink this tea several times a day.

4) Ginger

Ginger is excellent for the digestive system and may also be used in the treatment of diarrhea. You can use dried ginger or fresh ginger to make a cup of tea. When ginger tea consumed two or three times a day, it relieves cramps and abdominal pain that sometimes accompany diarrhea. Another option is to mix the same quantity of ginger juice and lemon juice with a little crushed pepper. Consume this solution at least three times a day to get rid of diarrhea quickly. You can also take ginger in capsule or try foods like gingerbread cookies or gingerbread. Those who suffer from high blood pressure should not use these remedies for diarrhea.

5) Fenugreek seeds

Due to the high content of mucilage present in fenugreek seeds, it is also considered a useful natural remedy for diarrhea. Eating fenugreek seeds will make your stools more bulky and will be a significant improvement in the severity of diarrhea and discomfort. Take half a teaspoon of ground fenugreek seeds with a little water. Drink this solution for the immediate result of the symptoms of diarrhea.

Some Teas for Diarrhea
6) Black tea

Tea not only keep the body hydrated, but contains tannins that reduce intestinal inflammation.
7) Peppermint tea

Peppermint tea is good for an astringent effect and fennel tea to soothe and heal the digestive tract.
8) Cinnamon tea

Have a cup of cinnamon tea as needed. In a cup of boiling water add one teaspoon of cinnamon powder. Let stand for 15 minutes, strain and drink.
9) Orange peel tea

Strip 1 organic orange peel and cut into pieces. Pour it in a pint of boiling water. Cover and let it cool. Sweeten with sugar or honey and drink.
10) Blackberry tea

If the diarrhea is mild, you should drink blackberry tea.
11) Sage tea

Drink warm sage tea in small sips.
12) Water

Staying hydrated is one of the most important things that you need to focus while suffering from diarrhea. This is mainly because the body loses fluids and electrolytes and can cause dehydration. You can solve the problem by drinking plenty of fluids. The best option here is to drink eight to twelve glasses of water a day. For best results, add half a teaspoon of salt and four tablespoons of sugar in a liter of water and drink this mixture throughout the day. Similarly, you can also drink green tea, fruit juices, vegetable juices and even sports drinks. Stay away from caffeine and alcohol.

13) Brown Rice

You can also consume brown rice to control the symptoms of diarrhea. The high amount of starch and B vitamins present in brown rice can help reduce the amount of fluid lost, restore intestinal flora and cause stool less watery. This in turn will accelerate the healing process. Take half a cup of brown rice and boil in three cups of water for about forty-five minutes. Once done, you can eat the rice by adding a little salt and drink the water after. For the treatment of diarrhea is recommended to use brown rice instead of white rice.

14) Bananas

Bananas can also help solve the watery stools problem. The pectin present in banana is a type of soluble fiber that helps to absorb liquid in the intestines and therefore alleviates the problem of watery feces. Additionally, the high level of potassium present in bananas helps replace electrolytes lost while suffering from diarrhea. Take a mashed ripe banana and add a teaspoon of tamarind paste, a pinch of salt and mix well. Eat twice a day to solve digestive problems. Similarly, it is a good idea to consume one or two ripe bananas at breakfast.

15) Potato

The potato is another starchy food that can be used in the treatment of diarrhea. Eat boiled potatoes frequently to restore lost nutrients and relieve upset stomach. Another option is to cook white rice and potatoes together in plenty of water until you have a thick puree. Remember, when suffering from diarrhea, you should not make the mistake of eating chips or spicy foods, as it may worsen your condition.

Simple Tips to Maintain Your Skin

As the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. When it comes to your face, it’s better to keep your body in good shape by following a healthy lifestyle than to try and fix problems after they arise. For good skin:

Eat a healthy, balanced diet that includes green vegetables and protein-rich food and minimal processed food. Dark green vegetables and lean protein help with the regeneration of cells.

Get at least 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep per night. Cultivate a before-bed routine to help you fall asleep quickly and consistently.

Fruit is very good for your skin, as it is rich in fiber, vitamins, and water. Fruit is great for healing digestive issues as well as skin problems.

Maintain your skin hygiene. Clean your face at the end of the day to wash away any pollution. Wash your face with a cleanser suitable for your skin type, avoiding soap. Soap contains sodium carbonate which dries out the skin.

Wipe off your makeup with either a makeup remover or a light carrier oil before going to sleep.

Massage a light oil like almond oil in your face, neck, hands, and any part of your body which is exposed to the elements. Almond oil nourishes your skin and keeps it healthy. If possible you can massage your entire body with almond oil.

Avoid prolonged stress, which can result in dull, lifeless skin and wrinkles.
Exercise regularly. Not only does physical activity reduce stress levels, it improves circulation, giving your skin a healthy glow.

Organized Cupboard Storage – A Cheap and Easy Solution for Your Home or RV

The unused space on the back of a wooden cupboard door can easily be used to store small items.

Besides freeing up space inside of cupboards, it makes things like first aid supplies, and pot lids visible and easily accessible.

Using inexpensive picture hanging hardware — eye screws and tough flexible wire — you can keep several small items ready for instant use.

It makes sense to keep home medical supplies on the back of a cabinet door.

You won’t have to go searching through the soap, toothpaste, shampoo and makeup when you are really wanting to kill the sting of an insect bite, or cover a minor cut with antiseptic and a band aid.

Your first aid book can also be tucked in with your supplies, just to make sure you know where to find it when it is needed.

What You Need

The supplies you need for this easy storage solution are inexpensive, probably costing less than four US dollars.

A packet of eye screws, with a closed loop on the top rather than a screw head. These come in different sizes. Pick the ones that are best for your particular need. For the first aid supplies, 17/33″ or 1,3 cm eye screws were used. The ones for the pot lid hanger were a little larger. The length of the screw will also depend upon how heavy the load will be and upon how thick the wood is on your door. Make sure you don’t get ones that will poke all the way through to the other side.
A roll of picture hanging wire. The wire is often a strand that has ten or twelve fine metal “threads” twisted into a strong, thin, flexible rope which is easy to bend and twist together at the connection ends. You can get both of these items together in a picture hanging kit, but it might have only two or four eye screws. If you are thinking thinking of stringing six or seven lines, it might be more economical to buy the items separately
A pair of needle nose pliers with a built in wire clipper is helpful for screwing in the eye screws and cutting the wire.
A knife with a sharp point– or an awl or ice pick. This is a good tool to start a small hole in the wood for the location and the entry port for the eye screw.

Usually you can hand turn the screw for a couple of rotations, then finish seating it by using the pliers to hold and turn it until only the eye shows and it is oriented either vertically or horizontally.
Finding pot lids is easier when they hang on a wire inside the cupboard door.

What else can you store like this?

Instead of medical items, you may want to put everyday ritual products for hair care or dental hygiene where they can be easily found while you are still in a drowsy morning state.

Open the cabinet and it’s all in plain view.

Keep in mind that lightweight items an inch or less in depth work best for storing with the eye screw and wire idea.

Small, lightweight plastic tubes that are tapered are ideal for this system. These are also the items that are easy to lose in a well-filled cupboard, and often they are not self-standing.

Glass bottles, jars, small appliances, and other heavy or breakable items probably need to be stored elsewhere. The lighter, more easily lost items, are best secured in this system.

Depending upon what you want to keep in the inside of your cupboard door, the width and thickness of your wood, and other variables, you may want to use larger eye screws and heavier wire.

Before you decide on the placement of the hardware, you need to determine that the screws and the items being held will not interfere with the sides of the cupboard, the shelves inside or the contents of the inside space.

Use your powers of visualization and do some measuring, or even make a pattern if you are unsure of how things will fit. Another good thing about this system is it is easy to alter if mistakes are made.
The wires can be adjusted according to what you are storing.
The wires can be adjusted according to what you are storing.
Where is that lid?

For hanging pot lids, especially on a larger door, you may want to use larger eye screws.

You will also need to leave your wire a little slacker to allow for the size of the lids.

Again, you will need to determine the level of the wire, so the lids will fit without interfering with any shelves or hardware. Try them for fit before you secure the wire to the outside fastener.

Having your most used lids on the inside door near the stove is very convenient and much easier than having to search through pots and pans stacked inside the cupboard.

You will probably think of other ways to use this simple hanger. It could even be a way to hang ties, scarves or other small items on the back of a bedroom door.

Yes, you can buy special racks and hangers for the back of your doors, but I have found that they are more expensive, harder to install and never quite fit the things you want to put in them.

Some ready-made hangers might be appropriate for heavy or bulky items. These ideas can take care of a lot of small items.

Deep and Narrow Cupboard

Next to my stove is a deep and narrow cupboard where I store spices and seasonings. It is very handy, but tiny containers tend to get lost and are hard to see. I found these Spice Gripper Strips on Amazon and they work great.

As with the other door-back ideas, you need to plan carefully so things do not interfere with shelves and hardware when the doors are closed. They come in a twelve clip package (Three strips of four each)., On my cupboard door I could only fit two per level, but they can be cut apart easily to fit your space.

The peel and stick adhesive on the back of these strips is VERY strong, so make sure to place them where you want them. The clips hold the containers firmly, but it is easy to remove and replace the items.

These happened to be on sale when I got them, and I thought they might be flimsy. I am surprised at how well they work — definitely worth the price.
Appliance Directions
Those information papers, like small appliance directions and cookware care, won’t get lost if you tape them to the inside of the cupboard door.

Other ways to use cupboard doors…

Even without the wire system, cupboard door backs can become a handy place to post calendars, phone lists, frequently used recipes, instruction sheets and other useful information.

Get rid of clutter by using those hidden places to organize the things you want to find easily.
