The Convenience of One-Cup Coffee Makers

  • Posted on October 19, 2017 at 5:40 pm

The one-cup coffee maker has many benefits. Perhaps you are the only coffee drinker in your house, and you are tired of pouring good coffee down the drain because you made too much. Maybe you enjoy gourmet coffee, but do not have the time or inclination to grind beans for a full pot. Or perhaps you want a convenient, mess-free way to enjoy a fresh cup of Joe at your desk.

If any of these are true, then a single serving brewer may just be for you.

Most of these individual coffee brewers have a built in filter. You just drop in a sealed cup or pod of your favorite coffee, hit a button, and in less than a minute, you have a fresh, steaming mug of java.

You can use your favorite cup with most of these, and some come with a thermal travel mug. There are compact machines that will even let you choose between coffee and tea.

If you do opt to go with a smaller version of the coffeepot, make sure you drink your coffee within 20 minutes, or it could turn bitter.

The one-cup coffee maker is perfect for your office at work, or for your desktop at home. You can have everything you need for a freshly-brewed cup sitting right in your desk drawer, never needing to interrupt yourself to get a quick coffee fix. The best part is that they are not messy, and cleanup is a snap. Any removable parts can be rinsed or thrown into the dishwasher.

Here are some favorites based on customer reviews.

o Melitta Single Cup – This sleek, modern-looking machine has earned the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval. A metered tank allows you to brew up to five cups before having to refill, and it comes in three color choices. Use your own mug and have a hot cup of coffee in less than 60 seconds, or a cup of tea in about 35 seconds.

o Keurig – One of the most popular brands of single-serve coffee maker today, the Keurig offers an adjustable brew size – up to 11.25 ounces. The programmable functions and removable water reservoir add to the ease of use, and its quiet brew and auto shut-off functions add to its appeal. Beginning at around $99, this is one of the more expensive single-cup brewers.

o Senseo – Another of the nation’s favorites, Senseo’s compact design allows you to use your favorite mug, and removable parts can go right in the dishwasher. Brew either four-ounce or eight-ounce cups with an auto-shut off feature. Priced at around $70, this one-cup roaster is a great bargain.

o Black & Decker – The little Brew-n-Go percolates fresh coffee right into a handy travel mug. The auto shut-off feature will give you peace of mind. This little bargain model is another customer favorite.

o Bialetti – This java maker lets you make the perfect cup of espresso at home. Just put your water and coffee into the specially designed pot and heat up over your stove. Starting at around $47, this little coffee pot gives you the choice of brewing two cups or four.

o Bunn – The fast brew option on the My CafĂ© not only gets your coffee ready in a hurry, but allows you to brew between four and twelve ounce increments.

If you choose to use your one-cup coffee brewer to make tea instead, there are two ways you can enjoy a steaming cup. One is to put the teabag into the filter, where the coffee pod would normally go. Fill with water, hit the start button, and let it brew. In just a few seconds, you will have a steaming cup of tea.

The other method is to run hot water through the machine and place your teabag inside your cup. Heated water fills the cup, allowing the tea bag to steep like it usually would.

Either way, you will have an enjoyable hot treat.

The only potential disadvantage to the one-cup coffee maker is the lack of variety in coffee choices. If you prefer to experiment with various flavors and roasts, you may find yourself wanting more choices with the one-cup option. With these little coffee brewers, you are required to use the appropriate cup or pod designed for your machine.

On the other hand, many of the coffee pods available on the market are of the gourmet variety, allowing you to taste some exotics blends and roasts without spending a fortune. The convenience of the packets makes them so easy to use. Simply toss into the trash when you are finished, with no loose, messy grounds to concern yourself with.

The one-cup coffee brewer may also be a perfect addition to your kitchen for those times when you are in a hurry, but really need that pick-me-up you get from a fresh cup of coffee. You only need to delay yourself for one minute, and then you will be ready to fly out the door, coffee in hand.

The units are small enough they hardly take up any room, making them easy to stow in a cabinet, desk, or cubby. Add one to your list of “must haves” for your office, or put it on your birthday list. When you discover the convenience of the one-cup coffee maker, you will be glad you did.

Semester 1, Gas receipts Reaches 18.7 Billion U.S. Dollars

  • Posted on October 19, 2017 at 4:40 pm

JAKARTA – State revenue from the management of the oil and gas industry-upstream (oil) in the first half of this year reached 18.7 billion U.S. dollars, or higher than the target of 18.4 billion U.S. dollars.

Meanwhile, oil production per day has reached 99 percent, or an average of 831 118 barrels per day from the target set in the state budget in 2013 amounted to an average of 840,000 barrels of oil per day.

Unit chief Special Executive Upstream Oil and Gas (Migas SKK) Rudi Rubiandini claims, the achievement is unprecedented in a period of 3 years.

“The achievement of national oil production up to 99 percent of the budget target has never happened within the last three years. During the period of last three years of national oil production performance was always below 99%,” he said, Wednesday (07/31/2013).

He said the success achieved oil production and revenues is the result of hard work in SKK Oil workers, all workers Cooperation Contract (PSC), leaders and workers in the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources and all stakeholders in the upstream oil and gas industry.

Therefore, Rudi appreciation to all stakeholders in order to increase production of oil and natural gas nationwide so that the target could be exceeded state revenues.

Although there are many unsuccessful PSC oil production exceeded the target set in the state budget in 2013, but some of them have worked very well exceed those targets.

Exceed Production

There are seven PSC, which surpassed the target of state budget in 2013, namely ConocoPhillips Indonesia Ltd, Vico Indonesia, Medco E & P Indonesia (S & C Sumatra), PHE ONWJ, Chevron Pacific Indonesia, Medco E & P Indonesia (Rimau) and ConocoPhillips (Grissik) Ltd..

The details are as follows: ConocoPhillips Indonesia Ltd managed to achieve oil production by an average of 34 867 barrels per day from the target in the state budget in 2013 amounted to 32 890.

Vico Indonesia managed to produce as much as 13,740 barrels of oil per day from the target of 13 010 barrels per day. Medco E & P Indonesia (S & C Sumatra) managed to produce 6,841 barrels of oil per day from the target of 6,630 barrels per day;

PHE ONWJ managed to produce 38 996 barrels of oil per day from the target of 38 080 barrels per day; Chevron Pacific Indonesia managed to produce 323 014 barrels of oil per day from the target of 319 430 barrels per day.

Medco E & P Indonesia (Rimau) managed to produce 14,086 barrels of oil per day from the target of 14,060 barrels per day.

For the PSC still can not meet the target set in the state budget-2013 as well as the target in the Work Programme and Budget (WP & B), Rudi hope they can improve their performance.

“Performance targets are not reached so soon improved to the national oil production target can also be exceeded. What we are doing right now is working for the State, for the national interest because it lets us collaborate and work together, “he said.

Find The Right Acne Treatment Cream For Mild To Moderate Acne

  • Posted on October 19, 2017 at 2:39 pm

Acne vulgaris can be classified as a mild, moderate or severe case of acne, and although severe forms of acne are rare, they can cause a great deal of problems to the person who has them. Each type of acne is different and requires a different type of treatment.

In this particular moment we will review the three classes of acne vulgaris. However, before getting started you should be warned that if you suspect that you have severe acne, you should check with your dermatologist. Early detection and treatment can help reduce acne problems derived from this skin condition.

Mild to Moderate Acne Vulgaris

These types of acne are usually characterized by the appearance of whiteheads, blackheads, papules, and pustules. Whiteheads appear when a pore is completely blocked with oil, bacteria, and dead skin cell while blackheads appear when a pore is only partially blocked.

Papules are inflamed, tender bumps. Pustules are also inflamed and tender, but they contain pus. Neither one of these should be squeezed as this action could lead to more damage.

How to Treatment Mild to Moderate Acne Vulgaris

Mild and moderate acne vulgaris can be treated by following a regular cleansing routine. Here’s what a basic cleansing routine looks like:

Cleansing

In order to cleanse your skin properly, use a soapy cleanser that contains sulfur or salicylic acid. Both ingredients are known to help regulate the amount of sebum produced by your skin. In fact, salicylic acid can help penetrate the pores and unclog them from within.

Tone and Exfoliate

You should only use a toner (oil-free) if your cleanser does not removed all of the debris on your skin. However, if the cleanser is able to eliminate all the excess debris, you can skip the toner. Exfoliate once a week (more if you are in your forties).

Moisturizing

When moisturizing use an oil-free, non comedogenic product. Don’t skip this step as dehydrated skin will elevate the production of sebum. This increase will, in turn, elevate your chances of acne breakouts and defeat the purpose of your cleansing routine.

Acne Creams

Use an acne treatment cream that is made with salicylic acid or retinol for stubborn areas. Retinol can help increase cell turnover and reduce your chances of getting acne breakouts.

Severe Acne Vulgaris

This type of acne is also characterized by nodules and cysts. Because nodules develop underneath the skin’s surface they are usually more painful than cysts.

Cysts are soft lesions similar to nodules. Just like nodules, cysts usually lead to scarring. This type of acne lesion is usually referred to as cystic acne.

Severe Acne Treatment

Cystic acne treatment usually requires intralesional cortisone shots to help dissolve nodules and cysts. Basic cleansing is also important with this type of acne. Remember that finding the appropriate scar treatment routine to achieve scar removal is priority for people with this type of acne.

Piano Lessons Improve Kids’ Grades

  • Posted on October 19, 2017 at 1:00 pm

Piano lessons do a lot for children; they improve hand-eye coordination, focus, and concentration. As they progress and improve, the classes also instill in them a sense of accomplishment and help them develop a love for music and the arts.

They also help the kids do well in school. In the mid to late nineties, much research was conducted on this topic. One such study revealed its results in the Neurological Research, February 1997 issue.

Dr. Frances Rauscher, psychologist, collaborated with physicist, Dr. Gordon Shaw in a study of pre-schoolers and the effect of music on spatial intelligence. One group was given piano lessons and there were two other control groups who were not.

At the end of their research, Rauscher and Shaw discovered that the children who took the classes scored more than 30% higher than the control groups in math and science tests. It is interesting that learning the arts can positively affect performance in the sciences like math, engineering, and other problem-solving curriculum.

Other similar tests show that kids who take piano lessons score high in IQ tests and generally do better in math and sciences, particularly in abstract reasoning. These studies suggest that there is a correlation between the development and stimulation of neural pathways and listening to music, learning, or playing it.

It may even be beneficial to children with developmental conditions such as autism. It offers them an outlet for expression that they may not have otherwise. Of course, it would take a very special teacher for it to work out.

This is a great argument for getting your kids interested in music and fostering a love for creating it through piano classes. You don’t even have to tell them that the training is good for them.

While it may not make your child a genius, there is enough proof that learning to play the instrument will help your child. It is better to start as early as possible, but all hope is not lost for teens and adults. Rauscher and Shaw also noted an improvement in spatial reasoning among college students who simply listened to piano music.

So, while most of the benefits occur early on while the brain is still developing those neural pathways, learning to play an instrument benefits everyone.

But, if you want to give your child a head-start in life, find the right instructor and sign her up. It can be a very positive experience for him/her. She may even turn into a great concert pianist or, if his/her skills aren’t that great, she may still become an engineer or a scientist.

If you want to improve the concentration of your kid through enrolling him/her for piano lessons Kenner Louisiana based premier establishment for piano services can be the best choice. Enjoy the programs designed for all levels of students. For more details, visit

Organizing A School Fundraiser

  • Posted on October 19, 2017 at 8:50 am

Feeling stumped on how and where to begin with a school fundraiser? You need to think about the demographics of the target group. It is very important to consider who they are, what they enjoy, and how you can appeal to them to get their attention.
School fundraisers have started to have a negative connotation in several circles, mostly among parents. The same old discarded magazines, over-priced peanut clusters and undersized-sized candy bars show up each year. With today’s economy, over-burdened parents are trying to maintain a budget and keep their money straight. Also, it’s no longer safe for elementary students to go door-to-door and sell to strangers, so the same relatives often feel obligated to buy fundraising items throughout the year.
To make your life a little bit easier, here is a simple direction to ensure that your school fundraising events reach their goals and run smoothly. Once you’ve decided which school fundraiser to introduce this year, there area few things to prepare before it’s initiated. Here are a few suggestions on how to organize a fundraiser.
Set your goals: Decide how much money you need to raise. Take into account all costs that you anticipate to acquire. On the other hand, determining how much you need to raise can be quite a job. It is also essential to have definite goals in mind. Managing a school fundraiser campaign with a vague goal will probably not get a lot of support by parents and students. Have individual group members volunteer to manage a specific task, such as promotion, form collection and product delivery.
Announce your fundraiser to your group and community: Know how you will promote your school fundraiser. The easiest way to endorse a fundraiser is through ample communication. Be sure to send an informational letter home with your sales brochure to the parents well before the start of the event. Parents can be busy and sometimes things slip their mind. Send home flyers with group members, publish announcements in your school’s newsletter or community newspaper and make announcements in morning homeroom.
Devise a sales incentive structure for your top-sellers: Decide what prizes you want to give away and begin acquiring them. The incentive used in a school fundraiser, will help more with the success of that fundraiser than any other factor. A school could almost sell five dollar bills for ten dollars and do very well if they motivate the students and parents correctly.
At any rate, themost significant issuefor your group is to keep your members motivated about your event. Your group’s success depends on your ability to keep your members eager about winning prizes and raising money for the group’s goal. Use these steps to plan your events. If you plan your work and work your plan, everything will fall into place.
