Product Review – Can a Swimsuit Make You Look Slimmer?

It’s certainly an alluring tag for swimwear: “Look 10lbs lighter in 10 seconds!” – but can a swimsuit really make you look slimmer?

The US concept, which launched in the UK in 2004, also claims that a swimsuit will make you feel 10 times younger and 10 times more confident. However, it is easy to claim these things but is it as easy to show that they are true?

I don’t know how they’ve worked these figures out… (We never got to work on equations like that back in maths class…I wish we had!) But the fact remains that the Miraclesuit is here to stay. With the imminent launch of its fourth season, those people who thought this ‘miracle’ was merely a fad have been proved wrong.

The suit is made from a material called Miratex, a fabric containing three times as much Lycra as most fabrics, and boasting three times the hold of ordinary swimwear.

The Miraclesuit, with the help of Miratex, has the power to “contour, shape, slim and firm”. Or so their company claims. And many women seem to agree with them, judging by the popularity of the swimwear.

Mike Eve, director of Patricia Eve, the company that represents Mircalesuit in the UK, thinks there’s a growing demand for quality products and a “backlash against cheap goods.”

Does Miraclesuit swimwear work? Eve puts it, “Its success shows that the Miraclesuit is a product that actually does the job it says it will, and is not just an idle boast.”

Dieting is the sure way to look slimmer but we are all looking for the easy option of an instant miracle fix. We tested the suit and found that it does indeed make a person appear slimmer by ‘readjusting’ the wobbly bits making them look firmer and less obvious and enhancing the parts of a ladies body that look better when they have a bit more shape. Whether this gives a person more confidence is more difficult to measure but it seems an obvious follow on from an improved appearance.

The Importance of Workplace Safety Posters

Workplace safety posters play an important role in effective safety communications, safety precautions and safety warnings to workers. It is one kind of safety communication. Their applications in chemical industries are very common where various potential hazards present.

Safety regulations and legal require the use of workplace safety posters. Generally, these posters have to be placed in workplaces where hazards exist. They warn workers about specific hazards that accompany their jobs and naturally appear in such workplaces.

Government or Department of Labor in each country has may already established the required workplace safety posters. And in some cases, the government has prepared these printed posters that can be used directly.

When the safety regulation requires such posters application, there will be certain penalties or fines for violations. In general, the employers will be fined when workers get injured due to lack of safety posters as required by the regulations.

Some employers may think that these posters for workplace are only devoted for the workers or employees. But, actually they are wrong. These posters are purposed to protect both workers and employers.

Employers would not responsible for any incident happen in the workplace if they have applied the required posters. As an example is the usage of eye goggle. When the employers have displayed the poster of eye goggle according to the regulation, then when worker or employee gets injured by chemical splash without using eye goggle, the employer does not responsible. The reverse condition is also applied.

However, before displaying any safety posters in the workplaces, always bear in mind that these posters should be relevant, clear and to the point. Use only common words and communicative images or pictures to get workers’ attention.

Should You Produce Your Own Video or Hire a Professional Production Company?

Like everyone else who is considering video marketing to launch or grow their businesses, you too must be in dilemma. The choice between going on your own to produce your video or hiring a professional service to do it for you requires careful consideration.There are several reasons why you should entrust this task to a professional even though it will cost some money.

First, you have to determine the product or service that you want to feature in the video. Secondly you have to decide on the duration of the video. Too long a video and your audience may switch off, too short and you may not be able to say or feature all that you want to display. You must strike the right balance and write a functional script before you shoot the video.Next, you have to choose whether you will yourself present the products in the video putting yourself in the anchor role, or hire someone professional to do it for you. You may save the cost of hiring someone, but the end result may not be satisfactory, because your body language, voice pitch and modulation may not create the impact required.Even the equipment like cameras, tripods and sound recording that you possess may not be of professional quality. A video shot on camcorder and something shot in studio under controlled conditions and lights will definitely give better results. Home use camcorders even though very convenient and easy to use are no match for studio quality equipment used by professionals. Editing the final cut requires dexterity and creative skills.Trial and error in this department will prove to be a disaster. Professional video editors know exactly how much to shoot, where to make appropriate cut in the final version and how to keep the video within the time limit and still incorporate all the essentials of the story it wants to tell.Consider the time spent in learning all the stuff, wasting precious resources and missing the bus when you should already be selling, than struggling with your camcorder.
