The old tree in our yard out front was rotten. It had a big vertical notch in the base of the trunk that a full grown adult could stand in. Actually, two people could fit. We even had our neighbor have a couple of her senior pictures done with it as a background prop. It was a beautiful tree up to this year. Now half the canopy was barren of leaves. No nutrients were getting to them, and that was the end of this tree. We called a company that does tree removal in Nassau County to come take it down.
They cut it from the top down using a bucket truck and even climbing gear and ropes. Continue reading
I live in a rather old house, and it was not until I was reading a news article recently that I started thinking about the wiring in my house. I am not sure when the house was wired, or if it is up to current building codes. But since this house is quite old, I am guessing that it probably needs to be rewired. I am going to find a electrician in Paterson NJ to hire to take a look at the wiring in the house and tell me what they think needs to be done.
Of course, I will probably differ to the electrician, but I am already going into this thinking that I am going to have to pay to have the house rewired. I was trying to find out some information about the wiring in my house on my own, by doing a bit of detective work. I found out that part of the house has aluminum wiring in it, and the rest has copper. I am not really sure how I feel about the aluminum wiring, but it sounds like it could be dangerous.

I never wanted to date again after two divorces. When friends asked me to go anywhere they planned to go on the weekends where the opposite sex might be, I politely said no. I assumed that it would be of no use for me to go through it anymore. One night, I went out to eat with a friend. She practically forced me to stop at a party with her. When I walked in, I saw sex toys sitting on the hall table, and a bowl full of them nearby. I wondered what I had gotten myself into. But the party was wonderful and not what I thought it would be based on what was on the table when we walked in the door.
It turned out that the bowl at the entrance to the party was a funny joke that the two party hosts were playing on another, and none of it had to do with the party. Continue reading
I went to Australia with my grandmother about five years ago, and I really enjoyed it. She was there for a funeral, so she was busy with her friends there the majority of the time there. While that was a sad occasion, I did not know the deceased, so I just kept myself entertained. I explored so much there, and I knew that I wanted to go back one day. When I was offered a job there, I knew that I was going to migrate to Australia sooner rather than later.
I did not know the process at all, but I was not worried about that. Continue reading
I would really like to figure out if my Snapchat account is secure, or not, because I say some things on there sometimes that I really would not want to have out there in the public. I think it is sad that we even have to worry about such things in these times, but it seems like the internet is getting less secure, not more secure as I think it should be. I am going to check out this snapchat hack to see if it actually works to hack into my account. I want to test the account myself to see if I can hack into it.
I will definitely feel better if I am not able to break into the account, because that will mean that it is actually fairly secure. Of course, I am not an expert at hacking or anything, and so there might be ways that can get into an account that I cannot think of to try. I have a friend, or well he used to be a friend, that is pretty good at hacking, and now he seems to think that I am his worst enemy. I am pretty sure that he might attempt to hack me in the future, in an attempt to gather information that he could use to try to ruin my reputation.
I want to defend against that possibility and if it is easy to hack into Snapchat then I am going to have to stop using it and switch to something that is more secure. I am not sure what I would switch to yet, but I am pretty sure that I can find something out there. I have heard of some things in the past that are supposed to be really secure, but I have not looked into them.
I had to travel to Singapore for business not long ago. I wish I could have made it a more pleasurable trip, but there was just too much work to be done. The one thing I did refuse to do though was to eat while I worked. I was mostly on my own while there, so I took at least 90 minutes each day to have a delicious meal where I could just relax. My first day there, I did a search for Spanish food in SIngapore because I had a taste for it.
There was a Spanish restaurant called La Ventana not too far from my hotel, so I went there for my first day’s meal. As soon as I looked at the menu though, I knew I was in trouble. There were so many different choices that all looked absolutely delicious. I chose a miniature tortilla for my appetizer. I knew I wanted some kind of seafood for my entree, but I had a hard time deciding between the House Cured Salmon Salad and the Octopus. Continue reading
We give our kids a lot of leeway in decorating their bedrooms. We let them have a little bit of the oddity that most adults would judge teenager bedrooms as looking like. Fortunately, the kids did no go too crazy. Our son did want all the walls in flat black paint with fluorescent things painted on the walls. We let him do one wall and the ceiling. It actually looks pretty cool in black light. We found rugs for sale online that also look super cool when the black light is on. The room glows at night. Our daughter is a little more conservative and only wanted thick pile shag rugs for her room and mauve for the walls. She likes floral themes, and her room is actually very nice. Continue reading
I knew that having a baby would change my life because I had always heard that from a number of other parents. But hearing it is one thing, and living it with a child is yet another. You have to actually go through it to really get it. I found myself drained after just the first three months with my son. My husband has to be up early each day, so I am the one who needed to get up each night to check on our baby at night. It was tiring, so I read baby monitor reviews after receiving advice from other moms. It was a big game changer for me.
Babies need a lot of care every day when they are awake. And needing to wake up each night to check on mine, on top of the times that he woke and needed to be fed, made me a frazzled mess. Continue reading
We found this really old house which Dawn really fell in love with, but of course it looks a lot like it might be a bit of a money pit. It is a really old house, which was apparently built around the end of the 19th century, or at least that is what the previous owner said. His family had owned the place since 1968 from what he said. He gave us a long list of the home’s issues. The big thing seems to be that we have to get quotes on AC system replacement in Manhattan, NY. It has a system, but it is not really worth trying to keep it running and since there are so many other things that needs to be done, you really may as well do this now. The current system has been there since some point in the early 1980’s. Continue reading
I have just started to set up a new home office in the spare room of my new home. Of course it is the sort of thing where you have to cut corners when it is possible. I am going to be running a few programs like Microsoft Office and Quicken 2016 so I need the sort of computer which is going to perform well on the software that I will use. I do not need a bleeding edge computer that is going to perform great with the latest video games for PC. In fact I think I can get a computer that will easily handle the needs that I have for a few hundred bucks. My friend from work is going to help me put it together. Continue reading
My wife and I watch the DIY channel a lot an often we get home improvement ideas. Recently we had the idea of making over the bathrooms and contacted a company for custom mirrors in Brooklyn. The mirrors would be the main attraction of the bathrooms, and combined with new modern style sinks and touch less faucets, the bathrooms would look like something that you would normally find in a fancy hotel. This would be our first attempt at doing a makeover on a bathroom. I bought some books on the subject to make things easier, but they really didn’t help.
Since a professional was installing the mirrors, my wife and I tried to do everything else ourselves. For the most part, putting new tile on the bathroom floor was easy, and inside the shower as well. It was a lot of work, but we did it without much problems. Installing the new sinks and the faucets were an entirely different story. Even though I had the book to help me, and a manual in front of me, installing them were still pretty difficult. Eventually, we called a friend to help us with the installation.
When my friend installed the sinks and faucets, he made it look easy. I guess since he’s done more installations that we have, stuff like this comes pretty easy to him. We finally had the bathrooms we wanted, and the first time I used the touch less sink was when I washed all of the grime off my hands from the work. I waved my hand in front of the sink and the water came on automatically. I could even adjust the temperature by waving my hand over each controller for hot and cold water. It’s amazing the kind of technology people can think of when they use their minds.
The roach problem in my home was unbearable a few months ago. I couldn’t really figure out where they were coming from, but I knew that I wanted them gone. I tried using some stuff that I got from the store and sprayed it everywhere, but none of that stuff worked. I put down various baits and traps, and even used some natural items that were said to stop roaches, all with no success. The final straw was when I installed an electric powered repeller that only attached more. I called for pest control in Brooklyn to deal with these nasty bugs.
The pest control workers came dressed in their uniforms and had all kinds of equipment attached to them. Continue reading
If you are suspicious that you may have a mold problem in your home, it is important to have it tested. A friend of mine who works with roofing contractors in NYC suggested to me that the roof is the first place that I should look. If I have a crawlspace then it’s likely that water has collected there, soaking into the wood which becomes the perfect home for different types of molds and fungi. Mold is one of the most aggressive infestations that any homeowner can battle. Too, they can easily cause a home to quickly become unlivable. Many molds have been linked to different types of health hazards including asthma and even brain tumors. This is why it is so important to get rid of the mold as soon as you find it before it’s too late for your home and family. Continue reading
I was having a hard time losing weight. With some people, this can be because they lack the willpower to eat less and exercise more. That wasn’t my problem though. I knew that I could probably do better than I was, but I was still doing enough that the pounds should have at least been slowly coming off. My doctor suggested that I see a chiropractor in Glendale AZ for help, which really confused me. I knew that would make sense if I had whiplash or was complaining of back pain, but I did not see how a chiropractor could help me with my weight loss efforts.
He told me that a chiropractor can actually help in many different areas, not just back pain. Continue reading
This was going to be my second apartment. I had made a poor choice on the first one and suffered through a year because of the lease. Now I was looking for much better apartments in Happy Valley OR. I was overconfident in my abilities as a young adult when I moved out of my childhood home when I turned 19. I had a full-time job and was attending an online university. I thought I picked a great place, and I ignored the advice of my mother and father to not take the place. They actually steered me toward Happy Valley instead.
I thought I could deal with being in an urban environment even though I was used to rural living. I had no idea about noisy neighbors and landlords that might not be up to par. Continue reading
There are many different types of contactors out there on the market, and while some work better for different people, many should just be avoided altogether. For starters, some contractors specialize in specific types of work while others do more general jobs, but there are also many who border on flat out becoming scam artists. The best option for each job can be different, but ultimately finding a roofing contractor in NYC is all about finding a quality hire. This means finding someone with a reputation that they hope to uphold by providing great customer service and overall value through their work.
Of course roof work is never particularly easy, as it is sometimes hard to judge how bad a situation can be or what materials may be needed. It is definitely a job category that should be left to true professionals, as it can be dangerous and the implications of mistakes are very important. Whether a job involves installation, repairs, or maintenance it is important to get everything right to avoid weaknesses or leaks. These can obviously lead to further problems and more damage, which in some cases can amount to costs higher than the original estimate itself.
Roof jobs can also get complicated just because the size of roofs can generally complicate things. Problems or delays in one part can cascade into making the entire project fall behind, so having a contractor that is committed to finishing regardless of scheduling conflicts will always be important. There is not much worse than getting halfway through a project only to have it placed on hold because another job came up that took priority over your own. Ultimately this can be hard for contractors to balance, but someone committed to making customers happy instead of simply trying to maximize profit will work on it.
I was talking to my daughter and she told me that she wanted to go and apply for a job after college graduation as a grant writer for the state of New Jersey. I asked her why she wanted to do this, and she told me that as a history major, there are a lot of monuments in nj that really need to be cleaned up or need an overhaul and she wants to be the person that will write the grants that will help the people in the state get their most prized possessions upgraded. She knows that it will not be easy but there are millions of dollars that are available from the government for this type of thing and it might be good for them to go and get some of the money for their own state. Continue reading
Of course a lot of the other people I go to class with are freaking out about this, because the term paper is really going to determine whether or not you are going to pass or fail the class. I know this one guy who is not particularly dedicated to his academics. The other day I looked over his shoulder and he was looking at this site called buyresearchpapersforsale.com. In fact I did not say a word to him, because I did not want to get involved. The truth is that I think he is a jerk if I had to be totally honest about it. However I am pretty sure that this is a really bad idea. If you go on the internet you can see why, although I suppose that is going to be a solution as well. You can find dozens upon dozens of web pages which allow you to check your paper for plagiarism. If you get something off of the web it is pretty sure to have been turned in some other place. Continue reading
My girlfriend and I have been together almost 6 months now, and I know that 6 months isn’t quite an anniversary. In fact, it is only half of one. But, I still feel like it is an important milestone in our relationship and I want to show her how much I care for her, and how much our relationship means to me. That is why I am looking for love poems for her on the net to see if I can find a really good one to send to her on the day of our six month anniversary. I really hope that I can find one that she will like a whole lot, but I am not the best judge of this. Still, I am going to try my best and see if I can find one that I think will be perfect.
Of course, that is not all I am going to do for the date. I don’t want to make too much of a deal out of it, because it is only 6 months, and not a year, or anything like that. But I still want to make her feel special. So I am going to get her a card, and some flowers, and put the love poem inside of the card. I am also thinking about getting her some chocolate as well, but I think that might be overkill, and it is not like it’s Valentine’s Day or anything. However, I am also going to take her out to dinner, which is going to be the most expensive, and most romantic part of all of this. I kind of want to make it all a surprise as well, and maybe say we’re going somewhere else, and then take her to the restaurant as a surprise instead. I am not sure yet though.
When my husband was transferred to the city office, I was so excited. We had been living in an area that was more rural than I liked, but we put up with it because his pay was really good. Knowing that we would finally be back to the city made both of us feel really good, and we started planning right away. It did not take us long to find a condo that we wanted to call home, so the next step was to find movers in Singapore. I was actually unsure how to go about this because the distance traveled was pretty far.
I looked for some tips online and was able to find exactly what I needed. Continue reading
Ever since I have was hired at this job, things have steadily gone down hill in terms of my relationship with my boss. At first, I thought it was going to be a great job, but it did not take long to realize that it was not exactly what I thought I was signing up for. When I was interviewed for the job, my boss seemed to be a very friendly fellow. I think it was just a front though because now I am going to call the employer helpline to see if I can get some information about business laws and employee relations.
I want to know what my rights are in this situation, because I feel like they are being stepped on, and there is no reason that my boss should treat me this way. I doubt it is even legal for him to treat me the way that he does. Continue reading
I like to accessorize my outfits by adding some fine jewelry. Although the outfits look great on their own, the addition of the jewelry creates a complete package. I recently purchased some jewlery from an online retailer. I’m usually wary of online purchases for items like this because I can’t touch them or see them up close. You really learn about the quality of the jewelry when it’s right in front of you. In this case, the prices were so good that I couldn’t pass on making an online purchase.
Out of my recent purchases, I like the bracelet the best. It has some gemstones embedded in it that make it sparkle in the light. While wearing it, I feel like some kind of pricness in a fairy tale. Continue reading
I have been working on ways that I can make some money from home and there seem to be quite a few where you are involved in transcribing audio. For example there are a wide range of legal transcription services where they pay people to listen to court proceedings and type the words that they hear. Of course it is going to depend a great deal on how well the recording is made. If everything is clear and there are no extraneous noises, then you are just going to need to be able to type fast and type accurately. They are not going to want to pay you if you can not accurately capture the events. Continue reading
I have been over here about a day and a half, we came in from Northern Italy by train. That was the most convenient way to go because we took a sleeper car train. Of course the logic behind that is that you are saving the cost of a hotel room and the trip is a breeze, since you simply get on board and then you settle in for the night. You wake up and you have gotten where you wanted to go. I am trying to figure out how to get my phone working now. Apparently Hgsyukle.com is one way to do it, or at least that is what this driver told me. Continue reading
It is a bit strange, but I know this guy from college who has shaved his head. Still he has a kinky curly weave, a wig that he wears. At first I thought he was not the sort of guy who likes girls, because this does not seem like something that you would do if you did. He claims it is a display of confidence, but I am not that sure about that. I was thinking about trying to do something similar myself, because I really think that I need a fresh look. Continue reading
A vandal was going around doing a lot of damage to people’s homes, and no one could figure out who was doing it. My house was hit, and I had to hire a painter in Morris County NJ to take care of the damage. I became so mad from this that I decided to do something about it. I went to the store and bought a security system to catch the felon in the act. The system has a 4 camera set up that looks at every angle of the home and records everything on a hard drive system.
The vandal made me a little paranoid, because I was always thinking that he would be outside of my home, ready to do more damage, especially when I wasn’t there. Continue reading
Ewen Chia is a name that is recently making the rounds on the web. He is well known for his marketing strategies which have been utilized by dozens, if not hundreds, of individuals and companies in order to improve their search engine rankings as well as their online success. It’s not surprising that individuals such as he with simple but effective ideas can make an impact as he has simply due to the fact that many online businesses, whether they’re a one man show or larger, believe that it’s as easy as starting a website. Much more goes into online marketing than a mere website or app but that is certainly the first step towards success.
While a website or mobile app serves as a digital storefront or window for users to visit and shop from, those users must become customers who are able to find the site or app in the first place. Continue reading
When I watch the news after Black Friday, I mostly see women shopping. That is because most guys don’t really want to stand in a store for hours just to save some money. It doesn’t even matter if it is an impressive amount of money, usually. I think that is the reason they came out with Cyber Monday, so guys could take advantage of some deals too. Okay, that might be a stretch, but it is probably still true. I am looking forward to a lot of huge Cyber Monday deals for 2015 because I am aiming to impress two little guys with the latest video game console.
I am dating a woman who has these two little fellas, and I know they have been wanting this game system for a long time. They aren’t the only reason I want to shop though. Continue reading
I’m a husband and a father of four children. We had one little girl, and then the next thing my wife and I knew, she was pregnant with twins. We always thought we would have only two children, so to find ourselves with 4 children was a shock. I decided that I needed a way to earn more money for my family. My father-in-law told me that I should try flipping homes. I have done well with it so far by doing most of the work on my own. Recently, I decided to hire roofing contractors in Bronx NY to help the process along. While I have done pretty well on most of the interior work on the homes I have bought and flipped, I do not know how to do electrical work and I have found that I do not do as well on roofs as the experts can.
My dad was a carpenter, so I learned some things from watching him when I was a young boy. I had no siblings, so my dad was my best friend. Continue reading
Living in New York was a dream of mine since I went to fashion design school. New York is the center of fashion and you could just sit and soak up the culture. I had found the cutest little apartment and I wanted to get a good deal on cable for my apartment. I found this website www.cable-tv.com/time-warner-cable/bronx-new-york/ to be very helpful.
Living in New York is not cheap so I needed to save money anywhere I could. I loved my new apartment and since you can’t get any TV shows with a little antenna anymore it was a must to have cable TV. Continue reading
I have started working on something at the gym lately. I have been trying to add a bit of muscle mass, but of course the idea is that I want to be remain at a high level of quickness so that you are able to cope with anything you run into on the field. Of course I am looking at some things like perhaps looking for a shakeology discount if that is going to help me add some bulk. Of course I am not looking to bulk up to no purpose. It is not like body building where you just need to strike a pose and make your muscles pop out for the audience. This is about being able to perform. Continue reading
Consumers are familiar and comfortable with conventional power sources. Power generated by fossil fuels such as coal, natural gas, or petroleum (oil) is widely used across the world and many countries rely on these finite resources as the primary sources of power production. According to the latest report by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (2011a), fossil fuels are expected to continue supplying much of the energy used worldwide, with petroleum based fuels remaining the largest source of energy.However, there are significant problems with relying on this type of energy.
Firstly, fossil fuels are not considered a renewable energy. The formation of coal, natural gas and oil takes millions to billions of years; consequently these resources will be consumed well before they are renewed. Experts have suggested that the world is currently at the peak of oil production, with only another forty years of oil reserves available and sixty five years of gas remaining. With population growth continuing to rise and the nature of economic growth and consumption, undoubtedly these fossil fuels will become very scarce and eventually unavailable. Continue reading
My wife and I are going to have to move out of her parents house. They said that we could live there, after we got married, for a time, but we have continued to live here for more than they had expected, and as a result have worn out our welcome. I am making more money now so I am going to click here on this link I found to try to find apartments in our area that are available at good prices.
I am worried that we will not be able to find an apartment that we will be able to comfortably afford. Of course, there are some pretty cruddy apartments around, if you really wanted to go bottom dollar, but I am not going to let my wife live in some of those places, they just seem to be a bit too dangerous for us. It would be nice to find a good apartment, that looks nice, and is in a good location, but realistically, that is probably more than we can expect to afford.
If my wife goes back to work, then maybe we could do it, but she is in school right now, and as a result, I do not want to put too much pressure on her. The main thing that she should be focused on is getting good grades, and I want her to know that. I really think she is brilliant and that she will be able to do great for the rest of her time in school. I am rooting for her, and she knows that. If that is not an option, then I might have to try to figure out how to make even more money. I am not sure if that is possible though, because I am already working a lot of hours.
We can get U verse now, but I have been trying to figure out how U Verse works and if it is going to be any good for a person in my position. The big thing is that we have a lot of people and a lot of tv’s in the house. It is pretty obvious that FIber Internet is a good thing and that every person would like to have roughly twice the amount of internet bandwidth as we are getting from our Time Warner cable company right now. You are talking about something that is apparently guaranteed to be around forty five or fifty megabytes per second. The cable company probably promises about half of that and when things are slow they do not give you anything close to it. Continue reading
Looking to get started on my next project, but it is going to take me a bit of time to get the money together. I could get it from a couple of sources, like for instance I could borrow from one of those online cash loans advance service if I really had to do it, but that would sort of make this whole thing illogical. It is a simple matter of math and of the risk analysis involved in this operation. If you look at the situation very clearly you can see that you have to be able to support your bets if you make them. If you risk something, then you have to be able to afford to lose it. In this case the gamble is quite real. It is something which could turn out very well for me if it worked the way that I would like for it to go. If it did not turn out right, then it could be a real problem.
If I take money from my own pocket and risk it, that is one thing. Continue reading
It is not like you can cut down on most of your bills. If I do not want to pay all of my rent that does not bother the landlord too much, he will tell me where I can get out of the place. In fact I can break my lease like that and they will likely raise my rent. If you view site on the people who run the building you can eventually find other people talking about how they tried to force them to break their lease so that they could raise the rent on some other tenants. They would change the rules so that people had to either get rid of their cats or their dogs. At any rate you get the idea. I can not get out of paying many of my bills or figure out a way to pay less. Continue reading
I did what I could to try to get out of it, but there was not much I could do without lying to the judge and those lawyers. I am not retired in name, but I pretty much operate on my own schedule these days. It is not like I can claim that I am unable to serve on a jury. In this case I am in one of the many lawsuits with regard to risperdal gynecomastia. If you do not know what that means it is not a surprise. I had no clue myself and I would have preferred it if I had not ever found out what it means. Risperdal is the name that Johnson and Johnson used to market a drug which was approved to treat stuff like schizophrenia and some related serious mental illnesses. Continue reading
Every homeowner knows that the potential risk to their home is great, as it only takes one bad storm or unfortunate accident to see terrible damage that can cost a fortune to undo. Recovery does not have to be so hard though, because while any problem may be stressful, the financial solution is obvious: home insurance. With this there is a nice safety net that helps recover by covering the costs incurred from unexpected home problems. It can be harder than it seems to find the perfect solution, but fortunately there are many carrollton tx home insurance companies offering great deals and coverage.
Perhaps the best first step is to check out the available discounts that can make expensive premiums come down to a more reasonable level without losing any of the coverage level. The discounts vary in their details but are based around a common concept: Reducing the risk associated with your home. Continue reading
There have been quite a few changes in my life recently. My brother and his wife were involved in an accident and he was severely injured. She had a few injuries as well, and it is going to take time for them to both heal. They have a small child, and they were not able to care for him properly on their own. I had been looking at a new launch ec website even prior to this, and I recalled one of the four bedroom condos that I had seen on the site.
The condo is actually two in one, and I knew that it would be the perfect place for my brother and his family to heal. My wife and I only have one child, so we were looking for a two bedroom. The doctors had already told us that my brother would never fully recover, and his wife had no job skills to where she could start earning the money they needed to keep their own condo. Continue reading
When my family decided to host the family reunion this year, we decided to really go all out for it. We have always had it at a local park since there are so many of us that attend, and we decided to switch things up a bit this year. We had secured permission from the owners of our grandparent’s property to bring everyone there to look at the changes they had made to the property. We arranged a bus charter so we would not have to arrange transportation for 40 of us. It was just easier for us all to go on a bus together for a number of reasons.
Convenience was the main reason, but there were other reasons as well. Being together is the main purpose of a family reunion, and that would not be accomplished if we were all in separate vehicles for a two hour round trip. Continue reading
There are many different professions out there these days and each of them usually has their own toolset. It can be as simple as common household items or include exotic and expensive items, the range is truly varied. In some professions the tools that are being used can directly impact the person’s ability to perform or deliver a service, which means that investing in the right set of tools can be absolutely crucial. This is the case when it comes to working as a DJ, so click here for a great selection of equipment that can help anyone stand out and get great reviews.
The equipment that a DJ uses can vary greatly within the profession, as many people have different needs and preferences. One of the most important parts of any show will always be the mixer, which is the heart and soul of any DJ setup and directly impacts their performance. Continue reading
My hair was looking dull. It used to be so shiny. My doctor attributed it to a medication I had begun to take about a year before, and simply getting older. Well, I knew I needed the medication and there was not much I could do to halt the passage of time yet I still wanted my hair to be shiny like it used to be. I looked online to find a salon that does keratin hair treatment in singapore. I wanted it to make my hair shiny again instead of being dull and lifeless.
Okay, I do understand that the actual hairs on my head are not alive. They are dead cells formed into hair. However, my hair was always strong, had nice sheen to it and highlights that the sun would bring out. Now it looks limp and dull. Continue reading
