ID Lanyard: From Military to Modern Chic

November 3rd, 2014

Most of us have used lanyards for various purposes. However, many still do not know what they’re called. A lanyard is a rope, cord, or anything that is looped so it can be worn around the neck, shoulder or wrists. It is worn to secure an object and minimize the possibility of losing them by keeping them tied to any part of the body. They are also used to ease the use of a mechanism such a whistle while a coach or a referee is in the middle of the game. Today, it is very popularly used as an ID holder called ID lanyards, which also double as an accessory. Alternatively, they are also used to tie a flash drive, tiny mobile phones, iPod and other handy gadgets. ID lanyards are now the posh way to keep IDs and other gadgets on hand or to keep them visible at all times.

Going back at history, lanyards were not meant to be worn as accessories or as convenience mechanism. Back then, a lanyard refers to a piece of cord or wire with a hooked end that is used to fire an artillery piece, or a mechanism to delay the detonation of a bomb dropped from the air. In shipping, lanyards are used as a rigging piece to secure things when lowering them to the sea.

The word first came about in France in the 15th century and was used in the military to describe an apparatus that is used for strapping a gun, sword or whistle. It was used so that foot soldiers and navy sailors would not lose their weapons during precarious situations, or would not have difficulty in accessing them whenever they are needed. Mostly, the lanyards are tied around the shoulders. Not long after lanyards became standard military apparatus, it became a decorative thing that is found in each military man’s uniform.

That time, the ID lanyards that we have come to love today were also produced in various braided patterns and in color combinations fashionable at that time. The lanyard is strapped to the shoulders of a soldier’s uniforms and is used to denote the rank, qualification or the regiment where the soldier belongs. Some modern military uniforms even still have them, though they are for decorative and symbolic purposes only.

This item has even found use outside the armed forces. The ubiquitous ID lanyard is now invading the market place and is used for various functions.

First of all, as the name denotes, it is used as part of the company or school ID package. The standard is for the ID lanyards to bear the name or the logo of the institution, and makes the identification card incomplete when worn with a different lanyard.

Aside from securing ID cards, they are also used to hold various other items that the wearers want to keep near them both for practical and decorative purposes. The lanyards are used to hold name tags, markers, pens, sign pens, whistle, name stamps, and various gadgets.

ID LanyardsThe ID lanyards have also become one of the most sought-after marketing collaterals used in promoting products, or the image of the company. As more and more people value the lanyard for the various uses it has today, they have also become the perfect medium for promotion. These are given out during company events, promotional activities, as prizes and souvenir items.

Because it has transcended its purely military and utilitarian beginnings, the lanyards nowadays come in various creative colors and chic designs. The make and the material also improved considerably. They range from the basic polyester to the gilded and glittery lanyards.

Importance of Knowing How to Determine Embroidered Patches’ Age

October 7th, 2014

Embroidered patches from space exploration missions are very valuable. Some space patches, particularly the rare vintage ones, can sell for as much as hundreds of dollars each. However, just as it is when collecting other valuable vintage items, patch collection can be a bit tricky in that some people spend huge amounts of money on items that aren’t actually as valuable as they initially thought.

Replicas and Fantasy Patches

Embroidered patchesIn the case of collecting patches, this happens when a collector is not aware that a patch is a mere replica or a fantasy patch. Replicas are imitations that are reproduced based on existing patches that are very rarely seen in the market. Fantasy patches are those that carry designs that were never really produced on patches. Oftentimes, these fantasy patches base their artworks on the designs of vintage insignias and artworks with some alterations. Other times, they are invented from scratch to represent decals that may or may not have existed before.

While there is nothing wrong with the mere production of replicas and fantasy patches, problems arise when a collector is unable to identify them for what they are. This is especially true when there are manufacturers who create these replicas and fantasy patches for the purpose of ripping off unsuspecting collectors who are easily tricked into thinking that these are rare vintage patches.

The Case of Randy Hunt

Randy Hunt is considered the most popular and notorious scammer on patch collections. With the username 4gator, he produced replicas and fantasy patches then sold them on eBay from the late 1990s until 2007, when his disingenuous methods were finally discovered. He would market his products as “rare embroidered patches” without clarifying that these were merely replicas or fantasy patches.

When a collector contacts him to ask if he had a certain patch, usually a vintage and rare one, Hunt would simply tell the collector that he’d check if he does. He would then produce a small number of modern replicas for the requested patch, then sell one to the collector, sell another on eBay, and then keep the rest to himself. Instead of selling them at an appropriate price for their actual value, he would sell these replicas for hundreds of dollars apiece.

The Difficulties of Determining Patches’ Age

Having firsthand knowledge on how to determine the age of embroidered patches can go a very long way in helping a collector avoid getting ripped off by scammers. There are many ways by which one can tell whether a patch is a modern replica or a vintage original.

But before you do your research on these methods, you have to understand that there is no single foolproof way to identify the age of an embroidered patch, or even to tell if it truly is a vintage or a very well-made replica. Even some of the most commonly used methods can’t work as a guarantee.

For example, one thing experts first look at is the patch’s backing. Patches that have wax or plastic coatings on the reverse side can almost certainly be said to have been produced after the Apollo era, because it was then that wax and plastic backings were first introduced. However, the inverse of this is not always true; not all patches with bare backings are automatically vintage patches from the pre-Shuttle era.

It never hurts to do your own research and know more about the many ways on how to tell a replica and fantasy patch from the real deal. But the thing with rare patches is that they are so hard to find that it is hardly possible to have available original samples to compare them with. This is why it is still always best to consult with the experts first, especially before purchasing embroidered patches that are being offered at very large prices because of their apparent age and rarity.

8 Tips for Being a Good Motivational Speaker

October 6th, 2014

Public speaking is not exactly an easy thing to do – there are even professionals you can hire to step in for you if you think you can’t do it; but don’t be daunted. Just because it is difficult does not mean that it is impossible. You can, of course, take public speaking classes if you want to be a good motivational speaker. So if you are considering a career in public speaking, or if you are simply trying to improve your public speaking skills, here is a list of eight things you can do to help you in your quest.

First, make sure you are familiar with your material. It is best to go with a topic you are familiar with and even fond of. Do extra research for information you can add to your speech. If the topic is very technical, add in some splashes of humor or some personal stories to make you and your audience remember the speech better.

Second, do a lot of practice. You can do this both by writing and speaking. Train yourself to think in an organized manner by improving your writing skills. You can also improve your public speaking skills through oral rehearsals. Learn when to pause and take a breath. Use timing equipment to help you plan your speech.

Third, be familiar with your audience. A good motivational speaker will even greet members of the audience as they enter the venue. It will be easier for you to speak to the audience once you have established some level of rapport with them.

motivational speakerFourth, stay calm and relaxed. Start with the standard material – address the audience first. This should calm you down and get you into a rhythm (while also giving you some time to mentally compose yourself). Do not make the mistake of rushing into the beginning of your speech.

Fifth, don’t waver and apologize when mistakes or technical problems occur. In most cases, the audience might not even realize it happened, so do yourself a favor and don’t draw attention to the mistake or problem.

Sixth, focus on the message. The speech is not about you; it is about the message you are trying to convey. Focus your attention on the message instead of on how nervous you are, and this will help you get through your speech just fine.

Seventh, think positive thoughts. This is important not only during your practice sessions, but also during the speech itself. Visualize yourself talking in front of your audience. Imagine yourself delivering perfectly and the audience giving you an applause. This will give you a good confidence boost. Keep in mind that the audience wants you to do great – they want you to be informative and entertaining, simply because they want to be informed and entertained. Don’t be afraid of them – you both want the same thing, which is for you to succeed in your speech.

Eight, and lastly, go and gain more experience. Find it where you can get it – no speaking engagement should be beneath you. Remember that no veteran motivational speaker became great overnight. It is always a product of hard work and determination. Gaining your desired expertise involves doing multiple speaking arrangements for several years. To improve, just keep in mind that you are always aiming to be better than you were the last time you spoke.

As mentioned, however, all these will take time. You simply can’t be a good motivational speaker overnight – but you can start training and practicing for it now. So if you need a speaker soon, just hire a professional this time and observe – maybe you can take care of the next one.

Trusting NY SEO Companies With Your Brand – Links and Content Marketing

August 26th, 2014

For those that are starting new websites online, you’ll find that it’s a crowded place to grow. In the past, there was so much digital real estate that by proxy of launching a page, you would be found. Today, however, you will find that it’s harder than ever before to gain leverage moving forward. You will not find yourself in a lot of circles online and could find yourself ending up lost in the shuffle of many different websites online. If you find yourself chasing the same old search results, and you cannot seem to move forward in the rankings, it’s going to be easier to hire a good company to do the marketing for you than to struggle with empirical data that never seems to have the final solution for you. Trusting NY SEO companies in today’s modern marketing world is something that definitely will help you engage the right components moving forward. If you’re not sure whether or not you want to give full reign over your branding, then make sure that you look at the bigger picture and execute the right protocol overall.

Content Marketing Is The Key To Unlocking Traffic Today

SEOIn recent years search engines have decided that they are going to rank sites and relevant data in a different way. They don’t reveal their algorithms to the public, instead they say vague statements and put out information that is somewhat difficult to understand. Some people take any information that is leaked within official forums or through Twitter pages and take that as gospel. The changes that were seen have completely thrown many marketers for a loop and you will see that in a lot of different marketing approaches online. For instance, there was a great deal of opportunity to gain market share through the use of link exchanges, web rings, and CPM advertising. Those are all but dead in terms of getting you a good deal of traffic and great overall components.

As for unlocking the real traffic generation options that abound today, you will find that the right content can really do a lot of good. The content that you create moving forward will either make or break your website’s reach, plain and simple. You could try to sugar coat it, you could try to change it, but in the end, you will need to have content that is compelling, alluring, and will bring forth the right protocols overall. If you do not establish the right elements straightway, you will not get anywhere. It’s this type of thinking that will have you looking at professional grade companies that provide optimization services.

What About Links From The Past?

Taking a look at how Google is now treating links, you will find that there is a huge amount of debate as to what is the good way to link to other pages. The key here is found with the launch of a tool known as the “disavow tool”. This implementation will allow you to have a full audit of links on your page. They’ll calculate which ones are good and which ones are bad and you will end up having to figure out what you want to stay within the index of search results and which ones you want to say have nothing to do with your marketing. Some people have found this to be an act of bullying, while others have seen it as a way to shave off the negative NY SEO practices of the past.

Suffice to say that the old world of thinking in regards to links is no longer going to play well within the search protocol that you have online. If you are chasing these old formats, you are going to end up losing out straightway. You absolutely need to make sure that you are going forward and not backwards, which means that you will need to rethink the way links are treated. If you don’t have a way to move forward with them, then hand over your brand’s marketing to a competent company that will work within the parameters of NY SEO in the real world and will build the right elements moving forward.

Not All Companies Evolved With Search engines

There are some companies that are not to be trusted. Figuring out which companies are going to deliver on the promise of good overall marketing is something that should definitely take on a new role for you. Figuring out whether or not you can move forward with the latest and greatest elements of marketing means that you need to take a step back and see what the firms are promising to deliver for you.

Too often people just give over their brand and trust to companies that are going to do nothing but cause problems with their overall reach. If you want to make sure that your site is well taken care of, make sure that you look into the world of marketing through professional services, but be wary and look at their track record. If they have a proven track record of success, then of course you will want to move forward with what they can provide you. However, if they don’t have a proven track record, walk away.

It has a flat bottom, a huge circular head and a relatively lower loft degree. For hits that require the highest distance, woods are the optimal choice.
