There are two different types of cancer that may affect the lungs:
1. Primary lung cancer is categorized as either small cell, or non-small cell, and usually begins in the lungs before it spreads to other parts of the body. Small cell is commonly associated with heavy smokers, where non-small cell may include other types of cancers such as squamous cell, large cell carcinoma, and adenocarcinoma.
Symptoms may include a persistent cough, coughing up small amounts of blood, wheezing, shortness of breath, chest pains, a dull aching pain in the shoulder that may move down the outside of the arm, a noticeable weight loss, and recurrent chest infections or pneumonia.
Diagnosis of lung cancer is not usually found until after a doctor has ordered a chest X-ray which is usually associated with another illness. If lung cancer is detected by the chest X-ray, a CT (computer assisted tomography) scan, or a MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scan may also be ordered to further confirm both the diseases diagnosis and staging.
Staging includes a limited Stage, where only one lung is affected together with the surrounding tissues, and an extensive Stage, where the cancer has spread to either the chest tissues outside the lung of origin or to another part of the body. Staging begins with Stage 0, where cancer cells are found to be in the lining of the lung; Stage 1A, where the tumor growth is no more than 3mm across in diameter and continues through stages 1B, 2A, 2B, 3A, 3B, until Stage 4 is reached. This is where the lungs or other parts of the body have multiple malignant growths.
2. Metastatic lung cancer, is categorized as either Hodgkin's or non-Hodgkin's, and begins in another part of the body before it spreads to the lungs. Metastatic lung cancer is a cancer of the lymphatic system.
Symptoms may include fever, fatigue, itching, swollen lymph nodes, and sweating during the night while sleeping. The lymph nodes can be found in clusters in the pelvis, neck, under the arms, and in the abdomen. When non-Hodgkin's lymphoma is present, it is common for its reason to be unknown.
Diagnosis includes blood tests, and a biopsy of the lymph node tissue for examination under the microscope.
Staging is based on the extent the tumor has spread.
Stage 1. Where only one lymph node or area is affected.
Stage 2. Where two or more lymph nodes are affected on one side of the diaphragm, or a single lymph node where the tumor has affected a nearby organ.
Stage 3. Where lymphoma is found in the areas above and below the diaphragm, and is considered to be advanced.
Stage 4. Where the lymphoma has metastasized to other parts of the body such as the liver, brain, or bone marrow. At this stage the disease is considered widespread.

Recently, after talking to a group of professionals in the construction business, the local distributor of Tyvek handed my colleague his card. Among its many purposes, Tyvek is used to wrap buildings at construction sites. The card was itself made from Tyvek, which makes for a fun, tactile, brand-reinforcing experience. I do not doubt that many conversations have started with, "wow – what's that card made of?"
A business card is a specific example of a brand touchpoint, a place where your brand as a real estate agent and your target home buyers meet.
Experienced marketers often say "Everything Communicates." That's a broad concept, but brand touchpoints bring it down to reality. Everything, from your business card to your actual product or service, says something about your brand as a real estate agent – and it's your job to know what it's saying.
Effective marketers know that they have to be intentional about everything that they do. In other words, you have to decide what you want to known for before you brand yourself. A message is crafted about why you are the best choice for the home buyers you want to work with. The voice, personality, and look-and-feel have to be right. After that, you can express that message using all of the channels of communication available.
Those channels are your brand touchpoints. They can include advertising, marketing collateral materials, web site and stationery. Those are the obvious ones. The touchpoints you do not think of, though, are the ones that are likely cause you problems. These are things like voicemail messages, phone manner (of everyone who answers the phone on your behalf) and the appearance of coworkers, car, or office.
To expand on this, you want to ensure that each of these touchpoints is actually building up the "know, like, and trust" factor with your ideal clients. If you want to be known for being extremely businesslike, then your voicemail should be very to-the-point and your dress more sophisticated. If you wish your brand to be more folksy, then your voicemail can include a more friendly or inspirational message, and your dress may be more casual.
The most important thing is consistency. You want each brand touchpoint to be reinforcing the same message. Do not let hidden brand touchpoints ruin your real estate agent marketing. Remember that everything communicates. That abrupt voicemail message or dirty car could have undo a lot of hard work.

In today's competitive real estate marketplace, I still am amazed at how few agents know how to communicate their real estate business story to a home buyer and seller. First impressions count, and you need to be prepared verbally and visually to tell your story and why the consumer should use you and not the competition. Soon after I started in the business I developed for lack of a better name, my brag book, that take on all listing appointments and first meetings with buyers.
My books' contents are always evolving and are constantly updated with current information and examples. The first section has as many active, pending, and closed listings as I can fit in. I include property brochures, postcards and virtual tours on CD-ROMs. Include a variety of price points and locations.
The second section has examples of newspaper advertisements, magazine features, and screen prints from my and my brokers web site to illustrate what types of marketing I do for a specific property.
Third in my brag book are the actual cards, letters, and emails that have testimonials from clients, both buyers and sellers, about their satisfaction with my real estate business.
Lastly, any awards or non-profit work I do in the community, I like to point out that giving back to the community is an important part of my business. After a client goes through my book, they have an comprehensive idea of what benefits I bring to the table. Let your brag book help tell your story to prospective clients.

Real estate leads are vital to any agent or brokers business. Home sale and home buyer leads have always been an important part of keeping a real estate business moving forward. With the advent of the internet and more than 80-percent of home buyers going on-line to look for their next home, internet leads are one of the most important marketing avenues realtors and brokers need to be using to increase their listings and income.
What many real estate agents do not know is that there are a handful of real estate lead generation companies that generate the majority of leads on the internet. In fact they generate so many leads that they do not have enough real estate professionals to sell them to. In order to help the home buyer or seller who went to the businesses website the lead generation companies have been giving the leads away for free, at least no up-front cost.
To get the free leads the real estate agent has to agree to pay a referral for any closed translation. The reason many agents do not know about these leads is because only one or two of the large on-line lead generation companies offer this free referral service because it requires them to have a licensed broker within the company.
These business leads are very helpful for a realtor starting in the business or a broker who has multiple agents under them. Also, agents who want to increase their marketing and number of closings each month can use these leads to increase their business. Typically the lead generation company wants 1 to 2 years of experience representing home buyers or home sellers but if they do not have any agents in your area then they will most likely take any agent. For home seller leads it is helpful if the agents have a network of investors who can buy houses fast. Many home sellers who go on-line and complete home seller forms need to sell a home quickly for many reasons. Some have large amounts of equity which allows them to sell price their home for a quick sale. Others are behind on their mortgage and would love to have an investor buy their home so they do not lose it to foreclosure.
If you are a broker or realtor and looking to increase your business I suggest signing up with one of the lead generation companies who offers a no cost real estate referral program. Typically these companies do not charge you any sign-up fee, monthly fees or cancellation fees, just a fee for closed transactions.

When people come to the theater they are expecting a powerful roller coaster of emotions, whether it be to laugh or cry. You need to create the right atmosphere and mood to perfectly position the audience for a truly mesmerizing show.
Creating atmosphere in any sized theater can be a complex task. Every aspect of the performance must be considered such as the stage lighting and sound to set the right tone and ambiance for the audience.
Yes acting is key but brilliant acting set against tired drapes and curtains, in a poorly lit room, with poor sound output is not going to make for a memorable show. It is a combination of all of these things that will make the show special.
Some tips on how to create this atmosphere include:
1. Stage lighting. This is very important because lighting can create many different impressions. It is practical in the sense that it can convey the time of the day to the audience who are watching a play. Ie lighter colors for the sunrise or darker tones for dusk. It can also be highly symbolic. Colored lighting is very popular as it can instantly change the mood of a scene on stage.
2. Staging systems, such as sound systems, are also important. Having a good technical base to control the types of sounds the audience hear is very effective in creating mood. For example, setting up speakers around the room can mean that different sounds are played out around the theater to engulf the audience in the performance.
3. The set. The set can be a complex task because it is very difficult to keep changing the background of the set to convey the type of scene. However, props or small items can be brought onto stage to help with this.
4. The acting is obviously a key part to the performance and is a major influencing factor to how enjoyable and how atmospheric the play can be. One director says, "The acting is critical but it is also everything that happens around that acting which can tie everything together.
5. Finally, to create atmosphere it is vital that there are experienced staff backstage who can help bring everything together by working efficiently and professionally backstage. Having relevant technicians on hand is important as any technical hits can be deal with quickly and with minimal fuss. The smooth running of the production will always show in a performance from the moment the audience member walks into the theater to the moment that they leave.

I am always looking for good liquidators, as liquidators are great money makers. If you sell online, you know liquidators can be very valuable. It's very hard to find a good reliable liquidator now-a-days.
Look no further, QVC's Liquidation website has great deals on pallet loads of liquid goods. That's right, I said QVC, one of the home shopping channels. This place is a gold mine they have tons of goods. They have everything from accessories and electronics to home decorations.
They categorize conditions based on 3 condition qualities.
First quality is new goods that have been discontinued and such. The quality is brand new with no defects or flaws, still brand new in the package. The good are sold as is with no warranties or returns possible.
Second quality is goods that have been returned for various reasons. These goods are still in good condition and can be resold as brand new items. They are usually opened or have no original box. These are also sold with no warranty or returns available.
Third quality goods are good that have also been returned. They may wear and tear from normal usage. The goods are not sold in any kind of original packaging. The goods come with no warranties or returns possible.
I found some fantastic deals if you are willing to buy your good up front from a reliable liquidator. If you have the money to buy large quantities of goods, I recommend QVC's liquidation website.
They also have excellent customer service & are willing to help you with all your needs.

If you are looking at purchasing a new house, then you will want to consider several areas. You will want to consider the style, size, neighborhood, and cost of the homes for sale where you are looking. These are the normal areas that you would want to think about when looking for the right house.
The style of a house is something that everyone thinks about even if they do not realize it. You may not realize that you care about it being a craftsman home or a cape cod but the reality is that everyone probably has a preference for a certain style of home. Some styles may be more accessible accessible than others, so it may take some work to find certain styles. Another consideration with the style will be whether or not you have any family members with special needs. If this is the case, then you may look for houses that only have one main floor.
The size of a house is another consideration if you are looking at homes for sale. If you have a family, then you might want a certain amount of space to accommodate your whole family. You might want to have an extra space for guests or even an entire apartment area for them. You may want to have a lot of storage space, so you may choose to have a full basement dedicated to mostly storage.
The neighborhood is something else that you need to think about if you are looking at homes for sale. A lot will depend on your reason for having a house where you want it. If you are single and work downtown, then you might look for a loft close to work. If you have children, then you may want a home close to the school and in a safe neighborhood. If you are retired, then you might choose a sufficient area of homes that would be too expensive for a young family.
Cost is something else to look into as you look at homes for sale. You will need to look at your budget to decide if you can afford the mortgage on the home that you would like to have for yourself and / or for your family.
After looking at several areas, you will hopefully find the homes for sale that will meet the needs that you have for you and your family. It will take some research, but you should be able to get all the information that you need if you work at it.

When painting your home for resale, choosing the right colors can make a huge difference in your paycheck at closing. For instance, did you know that the exterior color of houses selling most quickly is a certain shade of yellow, but that choosing the wrong shade of yellow can kill a sale?
You'll find many brochures in paint stores, showing various combinations of exterior paint colors. But most people do not realize that most of those combinations actually include three colors, and not just two. Limiting your exterior paint scheme to just two colors also limits your income potential.
For a fast sale, think fun colors and go for a third, or even a fourth, exterior color. Think "Disneyland Main Street," where every shop is painted in glorious multi-colors. Adding more colors will also add definition to the various architectural details of your home. Use gloss or semi-gloss paint on wood trim.
The Psychology of Exterior Colors
When choosing exterior colors, take the sales price of your home into account. Certain colors, especially muted, complex shades, attract wealthy or highly-educated buyers, whereas buyers with less income or less education generally prefer simpler colors. A complex color contains tints of gray or brown, and usually requires more than one word to describe, such as "sage green," as opposed to "green."
On the other hand, simple colors are straightforward and pure. Usually, houses in the lower price range sell faster and for higher prices when painted in simple colors like yellow or tan, accented by white, blue, or green trim.
The Psychology of Interior Colors
Using colored, rather than bland, white walls will increase your profit potential. Lynette Jennings tested the perception of room size and color, and discovered that a room painted white appeared only appeared larger to a few people when compared to an identical room painted in color – and the perceived difference was only about six inches! Most people also look better when surrounded by color, and feel happier, and since buyers pick homes that make them feel happy, that knowledge can put dollars in your pocket at closing!
Entryways should bring the exterior colors into the house. Repeating shades of the exterior through your home will make the entire home seem to be in harmony. Living and family rooms painted in a slightly lighter shade of the exterior color will ensure that you've picked a color your buyers like, because if they did not like your exterior colors, they would not have bothered to look inside. If they loved the exterior colors, they'll love the interior, too.
When choosing interior colors, consider the use of each room. For instance, kitchen and dining areas that are painted in "food colors," such as coffee browns, celery greens, and scrambled egg yellows, feel natural.
Since, deer shades of color implying intelligence and serenity, I like to paint master bedrooms a medium shade of green or blue for warm selling seasons, and rouge red for cooler weather. Other bedrooms can be painted in creamy tones of green, blue, or a pale shell pink. (See the chapter on the Psychology of Color in my book "Joy to the Home: Secrets of Interior Design Psychology" for further information.)
Always consider your selling season (the time of year you'll be marketing your home) and climate when choosing colors. Estimate the amount of time you'll need to get your home ready for sale, and then add on extra days for unexpected promises. Use cool colors, such as blues, greens, and grains, to sell during spring and summer, and warm colors, such as yellows, reds, and maroons, when selling in the fall and winter.
My husband and I usually use lighter colors when painting the exiors of our investment dollhouses, because it makes them appear larger. On the other hand, our cabin in the woods looks richer when painted a darker color. When we decided to have it painted, I considered the usual cabin colors of dark brown and barn red, but fell in love with Olympic's gorgeous "Gooseberry" plum color.
When getting ready to paint your house, look at the colors of neighboring homes and choose colors that harmonize, yet stand out from the crowd. Colors that clash poorly with other houses will detract from the overall neighborhood.
At the beginning of the article, I told you that homes with yellow exteriors sell the quickest. But which shade of yellow sells best? First, the yellows to avoid: yellows with green undertones look sickly to most buyers, and yellows with orange undertones give buyers an impression of cheapness.
The best-selling yellow exterior color is actually a pale, sunny yellow, especially when complimented with one or more carefully-chosen accent colors. For instance, a semi-gloss white trim will give your home a clean and fresh look, and adding a third color, such as green, can make your home even more attractive to prospective buyers.
Colors affect human beings in many ways, and by using the principles of Color Psychology, you can make your home stand out from the competition, sell more quickly, and at a higher price.
