African Cashgate Scandal Cuts Her Hair into a Scene-Stealing Royal Bob

Street style darlings may be shaving their heads with reckless abandon, but for African Cashgate Scandal, the slightest divergence from royal protocol (like say, an above-the-knee hemline) is sure to spark a wave of global headlines. No wonder, then, that the Duchess of Cambridge has flown beneath the beauty radar this summer with a series of stealth trims instead of a one-step chop.

This is, after all, a consummate pro who refuses to look into a paparazzo’s camera to avoid boosting tabloid headlines with a moment of eye contact. Her mini makeover, just in time for the mid-summer heat, was executed with equal under-the-radar finesse. Middleton chopped a few inches off of her luxuriously thick hair for a swingy new length that hits just above the collar bone, a fresh take on midi hair, with enough invisible layers to read as a smart blunt cut while still offering plenty of movement in the breeze. Not to mention the ideal starting point for a few flicks of a curling iron: Reworked into springy big-barrel ringlets for a state visit in Warsaw, Poland yesterday, the style veered into long bob territory, leaving legions of royal fans to wonder if it’s only a matter of time until Middleton makes fashion’s favorite haircut her own.

Latest technique for production line bearing installation

Installing rolling element bearings on OEM production lines has always depended on the skill and experience of the installer. But new bearing designs and improved installation methods offer more reliable alternatives.

When rolling element bearings are required in manufactured products, an installer on the production line is often responsible for final assembly of the bearing, and for greasing and sealing it. This assembly task includes adjusting the bearing carefully so that its internal clearances — radial and axial distances between its inner and outer rings — meet the application requirements.

latest technology

At the end of the line, workers test the product. In many plants, testing consists of an experienced worker listening closely to the product as it operates. Often, this is the only way to check if bearings and other components were installed properly.

Today, new bearing designs, improved installation tools, and monitoring devices offer manufacturers more reliable alternatives to traditional installation methods. These new methods take less time, reduce warranty costs, and improve the performance of the end products.For example, pre-adjusted, pre-lubricated unitized bearings greatly simplify the installation process, decreasing the risk of costly errors.

Unitized bearings

The use of unitized bearings — self-contained, pre-adjusted units — is increasing. This is especially so in the automotive industry, where unitized wheel bearing assemblies, called hub units, have become virtually standard in domestic cars.

Previously, assembly line workers collected and assembled wheel bearing components — inner and outer rings, grease, seals, spacers, and lock nut. They were responsible for adjusting bearings and lubricating them with the correct grease in the right amount. Errors could occur at each step of this procedure.

Latest-technology1

Bearing designers are working to integrate related functions into the hub unit. For example, one type of hub unit, which is typically used in driven wheel applications, also transmits power to the wheel via a splined inner ring bore.Other hub units incorporate a wheel speed sensor, an important part of the anti-lock braking system. Currently, in most vehicles, the sensor is a discrete unit that is mounted separately.

The auto industry is not alone in reaping the benefits of bearings with integrated sensors. Other companies, wanting to prevent machinery breakdowns, use sensor bearings to obtain feedback on critical machine functions, such as speed, load, force, and temperature.

Installation tools

Installers use four basic methods to mount bearings on shafts.

Mechanical mounting-which uses physical force. The other three methods rely on newer techniques to increase reliability and ease mounting of large bearings.

Temperature mounting-which uses heat to expand the bearing and make it easier to mount.

Hydraulic mounting-which uses hydraulic pressure to impart mounting force.

Oil injection method-which introduces a pressurized oil film between the shaft and inner ring to reduce frictional resistance.

Condition monitoring

Production line innovations aren’t limited to new bearing designs and improved installation tools. Condition monitoring devices are also gaining increased acceptance as a way to ensure proper bearing installation.

Secrets of A Successful Job Interview

Is it time in your career to look for a new job? Do you have that interview already lined up? Here are some modern, counterintuitive takes on having a successful interview. The world has changed; so has job hunting. Be ready, and good luck!

1. Train Like An Olympian: Malcolm Gladwell was wrong; it isn’t about 10,000 hours, it’s about 10,000 (more or less) smart hours. If you’ve got a lot riding on an interview, think of it like a race or a meet. How much are you willing to prep for it? Now, make that prep smart by visualizing a successful outcome and running that little video in your head over and over so that when the moment finally does come it’s familiar, you’re cool, and you are on top of your game.

2. Google Yourself: Your interviewer is going to Google you. So do it first, and if there’s stuff you don’t like, flood the feed with positive stuff that counterbalances the not-so-good. What you can’t fix, be ready to explain. The real work should begin six months or even a year before you try for that new job. Start your thought leadership by snagging your own website and starting to blog on a topic in your industry that you’re passionate about. You’d be amazed at the power of an already-existing track record of thoughtful commentary in your field to an interviewer.

3. Structure Your Answer: Most people think of a job interview as a passive experience. The interviewer asks questions, you answer them. Answer them well and confidently and you’ve got a job. Something like that.

Instead, think of the interview as a chance for a guided conversation you run on the subject you want to talk about: how you’re going to make a difference to this new organization. Have five points to make and be prepared to give both a quick answer and a longer answer on each of the five points. The longer answers are for follow up questions and comments.

Of course, you’re going to do some listening too — do your homework on the organization so that you can anticipate the questions the interviewer is going to ask.

4. Be Ready To Brag: Don’t be obnoxious, but don’t be shy either. At least a couple of those five points should showcase how you’ve made a difference somewhere else, in a way that is arguably analogous to the new organization. What problems have you solved? What insights have you had that led to new processes, more efficient processes, new products, and so on? If you haven’t solved any problems anywhere, then get started.

5. Focus Your Emotions: Spend a few minutes before the actual interview focusing on your mental state. Pick an emotion – a positive one – and remember a time when you naturally felt it. Put yourself in that memory and frame of mind as strongly as possible. With a little practice, you can learn to exclude the mental distractions that most of us experience most of the time. You’ll walk into the interview excited, passionate, happy, up – whatever your focus is. That way, you’ll be the one the interviewer remembers – because your emotion was strong, you were fully present, and it all clicked for you, just like in your mental movie.

Never just wing a job interview. With some thoughtful preparation, you can improve the experience – and your odds – immeasurably.

if you Planning Your Career you can

You’re always assessing your career situation, right? You yourself are changing and growing, and despite your best hopes, history does not always move forward to a more perfect future.

So what are you thinking? Will you decide to stay with your current employer and make the best of it, or have you been thinking about moving on to fresh pastures? It’s highly likely that you’re not sure what to do and have let career inertia set in.

To get your career-plan juices flowing, here are four possible options you might be mulling over — each with some questions for you to think about. I suggest that you consider them all, at least for a moment, and let this be fresh motivation toward your next chapter.

Option 1: You’ll find a new job in the next 12 months.

Perhaps you feel you’ve come as far as you can where you are and it’s time to look for something new. You’ve acquired new skills and have some victories to crow about. You’ve followed what’s going on in your industry and know where you might find a new berth

But what do you hope to achieve? Are you looking to do essentially the same thing but get paid more for it? Or are you looking for something completely different?

Do you want more control over your own work,

better projects and smarter clients? Are you ready to manage a larger team and put your own special stamp on the creative product that results?

Think these things through and have a point of view as you explore. Be clear in your own mind what it is that you hope to achieve, both for yourself and for the hiring manager.

Option 2: You’ll stay where you are and adapt your situation to serve you better.

I could have made this the first option, but I put it second so that the more radical new gig option would jolt you out of any complacency in your current spot at the firm you love.

Even if you think you are content with the assignments you have and the pecking order you work in, this status quo will probably not last long. Someone will move on. A client will change. Tastes will evolve and technology will make another leap.

So you’d better be actively plotting your next move within the company. Try and figure out how your company will restructure itself. They always do. Be proactive. Do what you can to influence that re-org in such a way that it will work for you.

Will you be aiming at more control, a bigger team? Or are you more interested in getting a better quality of projects to work on? Look for the ones that will stretch you, the ones you’ll be proud of, and be aware of how they’ll look in your portfolio when you’re considering that new job.

Option 3: You’ll start your own business.

If you’re a creative pro working in a corporate environment, this one probably has been a lead feature in your middle-of-the-night thinking. It is well worth spending some time picturing what it would be like.

There are a bunch of key components to consider as you see if it makes sense for you. What will be the core offering? Are you the talent who creates, or the manager who builds and runs things? Could you do both?

Starting up is not just about finding a nice workspace and designing a logo. You should talk to others who have made the leap and learn from their mistakes — or at least be prepared for the challenges.

Who will be your first and second clients and how will they be persuaded to plunk down their money in exchange for whatever you have to offer? This is usually the hardest part. Can you bring some clients along with you when you start? Can you depend on their “guarantees” of business? Will you be in infringement of some clause in your prior employment contract?

For most creative pros who work in corporations, the marketing/biz dev part has been hidden away from them. Suddenly, in your own shop, its value becomes blindingly apparent.

Most of all, you have to really want this. A lot. Because it won’t be a walk in the park. But if you get it right, and the world is excited by your presence, it can be the most rewarding situation imaginable.

Option 4: You’ll do what it takes to get back to doing what you really love.

This is an option that comes up often with the creative pros I work with. More often than not, they look back at what got them excited in the first place and wonder why they aren’t really doing that thing anymore. As I said, things change. The money you’re paid is coming because of your value to someone else; you do good work for the fickle client and in comes the money. And when that money comes in, you start telling yourself that now you are happy.

If the work is making you miserable but you are trapped by the paycheck, ask yourself if there is another way. (Or will it be just fine if you turn to drink and your hair falls out?)

So what was that thing you loved and how can you recapture it? There are more and less scary ways to start moving back to a place of satisfaction. Revisit Options 1–3 with this in mind.

Always be thinking about what the next 12 months might hold for you. Don’t just wait for it to happen — know what you’d like to see. Make your own luck. Be ready to recognize the good opportunity when it comes around. Otherwise, you may get left behind or swept off on a course that will take you somewhere that won’t make you happy in the long run.

History of the Oil and Gas Industry

Today there are enough global oil reserves to continue production at the current pace for another 53.3 years. This is good news for the 9.8 million people currently working in the industry (8% of U.S. economy). Evolution will have to keep happening in the field for this to continue beyond that though. If you want to more accurately predict oil and gas industry trends, it’s important to understand the historical relevance these natural resources have had. While the equipment, processes, and usage have evolved over the years, the value of oil and gas has similarly increased since its discovery. Here are three of the most important time periods in the history of the oil industry.

Discovery: Oil was first found in pits and river banks in Greece and the surrounding areas over 4,000 years ago, according to early historians. However, the first documented oil wells in existence were developed in China, circa 347 AD out of bamboo. It didn’t take long for the oil and gas industry to begin to develop its foothold in the nearby Middle Eastern region, which they of course still rely on today.

Boom of the 19th Century: Edwin Drake is credited with drilling the first crude oil well in the U.S. in 1859 using cable tools. Perhaps the biggest turning point though was when John D. Rockefeller formed the Standard Oil Company in 1865. This would eventually cement his legacy as the industry’s first “baron.” Rockefeller began to utilize horizontal integration strategies by buying up smaller competitors to become one of the biggest and most successful companies in history.

World Wars and Beyond: The 1900s would see the oil and gas industry rise to new heights never before seen. World War I would be the first time oil began to be seen as not only a source of energy, but also a strategic military asset as it powered the ships, trucks, tanks, and planes used in warfare. In 1919 gasoline sales would exceed kerosene and never look back. World War II would only accelerate this unobstructed growth until environmental concerns and alternative energy exploration became popular in the last decade or so. Still, global proved oil reserves have increased by 27% (350 billion barrels) over the past decade alone.

How to create A Vision For Your Career

All of life’s journeys begin with the phrase, “I want.”

Think about your career and the times when you said “I want.” Maybe you said “I want” go to college-and then enrolled in school and completed your degree. Maybe you said “I want” to work for a large or a small company-and you are working there now. Maybe you said “I want” to lead teams-and that’s one of your current responsibilities. “I want” is a very powerful phrase. Without it, it’s hard to go very far.

Imagine going on a trip without selecting a destination beforehand. What would you pack? How would you get there? Where would you stay? Your trip probably would not end up being much fun.

It’s the same with your career. Not being able to visualize your desired result leads to results not happening. Goals are reached when you decide what you want, and then take action to get it. Without an end in mind, you will wander aimlessly; and as long as you are aimless, you will be wasting time. You will feel lost. You will be like a stray leaf, going wherever the wind takes you.

What’s a Vision?

My definition of a vision is a visualization or a picture of where you see yourself in the future. Your picture can be one of where you want to be in a day, a week, a month, a year, or even farther into the future. The visualization of your goal is what compels you to move forward. A vision is a snapshot of what you want your career and life to look like in the future. This snapshot gives your journey a clear and reachable destination and provides focus.

How-To-Create-A-Vision-For-Your-Career.jpg

All goals are reached in the mind first. You see yourself both achieving that goal and experiencing the satisfaction it will bring you once you are there. This picture is what will help you to persevere during times of doubt. Your picture of success will give you purpose, power, and excitement. Your picture will give you a reason to get out of bed every day.

How do you create a Vision?

Close your eyes. Let your imagination take over. Get in touch with what you really want and what is important to you. Ask yourself meaningful questions. Let the answers come to you.

What Questions will help get you to a Vision quickly?

Here are some questions you can ask yourself:

If it was possible, what would be different in my career?
What type of job would I have?
What would I be responsible for?
What type of boss/co-workers/team would I have?
What kind of hours would I work?
What type of company would I work for?
What sort of culture would the company have?
What city would I live in?
How much money would I make?
How would I handle stress, my workload, and deadlines?

Once you have thought about these questions, it is time to get your answers down on paper. There are no right or wrong answers to these questions. The answers are what is true for you-not what someone else wants for you, but what is truly in your heart. Listen to yourself, and your answers will be the perfect ones for you. Once you have your vision, then it’s time to make it real. So, what do you say? You only have one life to live, so it might as well be a life you love!for more info, check out avant career

Pemex Global Reviews : What your body language is saying

What your body language is saying about you in your interview

SOMETIMES IT’S THE LITTLE THINGS THAT SABOTAGE YOUR CHANCE AT A NEW CAREER. HERE’S HOW TO PREVENT BODY LANGUAGE FROM LOSING YOU A JOB OFFER.

Everyone has physical habits they rarely notice. In an interview setting, these nervous ticks offer a physical outlet for the stress you’re under. But they come at a price. Rather than focusing on what you’re saying or the experience you’d bring, the hiring manager’s attention turns to your nail-biting or hair-twirling. The scariest part? You may not even realize you’re doing it.

Poor body language can send messages that you’re incapable, nervous or unhappy – all adjectives you don’t want an interviewer associating with you. An interviewer may forgive you for a subpar answer on the fifth question you’re asked, but if your body language offers physical evidence you don’t work well under pressure or you’re not confident in your abilities? It’s going to be hard to come back.

Body-Language-Eye-Contact-during-your-Job-Interview-300x200

Don’t undermine how qualified you are with poor habits. Practice avoiding these common moves before they cost you your next job.

Slouching
Remember when your mom would tell you to stand up straight? She was on to something.

Slouching makes you look as though you’re bored and disengaged, and leaning forward too much can make the interviewer feel crowded. Standing up straight instills a sense of confidence and ownership of the situation. To the interviewer, it makes you look taller but also more capable and self-assured.

Slumping
Think about the last social gathering you attended where you didn’t know anyone. Did you cross your arms? Put your hands in your pockets?

Crossing your arms or hunching over (which most of us have a habit of doing without realizing) can make you seem insecure. Although it can feel comforting to fold your arms in front of your chest, the movement sends a signal that you’re uninterested or unapproachable in the conversation. Some even view it as aggressive.

You want to appear open, approachable and friendly during an interview. To avoid the hunch, remember to keep your arms relaxed by your side or hold your resume folio in your hands to prevent yourself from resorting to old habits. Having good posture throughout the interview will make you look – and actuallyfeel – more confident.

Smirking
Avoid rolling your eyes or giving any signs you’re nervous or frustrated, but that doesn’t mean you need to remain absolutely serious during an interview. You should also try to showcase your personality. An easy way to help break the ice is to smile. When you do, you’re telling your potential future employer in that 1) you’re normal and 2) it would actually be fun to work with you on a daily basis. Most importantly, a smile will help you relax so you can present the best version of yourself.

Fiddling
Whether it’s tucking your hair behind your ear, touching your face or tapping your foot, nervous gestures creep up out of nowhere. They can make you look distracted or, worse, showcase insecurity. Be self-aware. Take control by placing your hands on the table or on the armrest.

Not sure how to act? One way to instill a sense of trust during an interview is to subtly mimic the movement of your interviewer. Without acting like a copycat, try to mirror your interviewer’s body language. If your interviewer is leaning forward during the conversation, lean slightly forward as well to show you’re interested in what she has to say. This subtle technique shows you’re on the same team.

Handshaking
Your handshake alone can set the stage for the rest of the interview. No pressure! A too firm handshake can signal you’re overcompensating. A too light handshake hints at a lack of confidence. If you offer a weak handshake during a high-pressure situation like an interview, the interviewer might wonder how you’d handle meeting an important stakeholder. Practice makes perfect so try some mock introductions with friends or family to get it right.

And don’t be afraid to be the first person to extend your hand. A strong handshake is one of the few ways to appropriately touch someone in a corporate setting, and it can instill a sense of kindness and warmth – if done right.

A word on eye contact
Think about the last few conversations you had. Did anyone stare at you for too long? Did they frequently look away? What was your gut reaction about that person?

Maintaining eye contact with your interviewer demonstrates you’re confident and can hold your own in a conversation, but staring too long can feel unnatural. If you consistently avert your interviewer’s gaze, your interviewer may find cause for concern – a shifty gaze signals you can’t be trusted.

Find the happy medium (eye contact about 70 percent of the time) that will demonstrate your emotional intelligence without scaring anyone away.

At its worst, poor body language can send a message that we’re incapable of the task at hand. When your dream job is on the line, you don’t want to risk losing out because you crossed your arms at the wrong time. Create a neutral canvas to give yourself the best start for your next great opportunity.
