In the past, the benefits of growing hydroponically have been questioned – however, 2016 is here and many people are now recognising the many advantages that growing without soil can bring.
First of all, hydroponically grown plants can often grow in a shorter time period than those grown in soil because their roots directly receive the nutrients they need as opposed to having to search for them in soil. Because they receive nutrients in this way, they are able to live with much smaller root systems, which brings us to our next benefit – you can grow more plants in smaller areas. This is ideal for both people who want to grow on a mass scale and individuals who don’t have a large growing space. Another benefit of hydroponics comes from the lack of soil needed. Soil unfortunately often carries pests and diseases which in turn can often get passed on to plants. When growing hydroponically – this risk can be completely avoided. And last but not least, don’t forget that hydroponics allow for growth all year round, what more could you want?
The only possible drawback that we can think of, is the initial start-up cost. However, don’t let this worry you. See the purchasing of hydroponics equipment as an investment as we are positive that it will bring you enjoyment and satisfaction for many years to come. If you are a beginner and don’t have any equipment yet, it would be idea to buy a complete kit as this will provide you with everything that you’re going to need.

Did you know that in the UK 15 young children are taken into hospital each day because it is thought that they have swallowed something poisonous – for instance someone else’s medication?
Child-resistant tops are not childproof, yes they help to slow children down, but it isn’t completely impossible for a child to get into these. Some 3-4 year olds can even open these bottles on their first attempt! Children are also going into their parent’s handbags and taking out painkillers and going under the kitchen sink and taking detergent capsules and similar substances. This is incredibly dangerous and because of this it is time to ensure that children can’t access these items anymore!
Lock all medicine away
This could seem like a drastic measure to some, however it is the most effective way of ensuring that you child doesn’t get poisoned. Many people have a medicine cupboard or a medicine drawer but going forward it is important that all drugs are stored in secure places, that require a key, or code to get in. This way you will never have to worry and your children will not have to suffer.

While many electric cookers offer a variety of features and in turn make perfectly acceptable cooking appliances, there is a high chance that you will be able to purchase a gas option with all of the same features for a much smaller cost. In addition to them being more affordable, gas cookers also come with many distinct advantages and offer a more traditional method of cooking.
Gas cookers can be a great investment for all homes and here are just some of the advantages:
Some things to think about
- Because the flame of a gas cooker is centralised, heat is evenly distributed enabling the perfect cook with reduced risks of scorching
- Gas cookers provide a heat often more closely suited to the recommended requirements found in the majority of cookbooks and recipes
- They emit less wasted heat than electric cookers and the flame goes completely out straight away when turned off
- Gas cookers heat up rapidly too, making the process of cooking food much quicker

Some Steps to take:
- Take time to learn how to load, cock and shoot your air gun correctly and safely to avoid having an accident. This also allows you to fine-tune your accuracy!
- Find a suitable space and location where you are certain that you aren’t going to cause damage to anything or harm anyone. If shooting a target, make sure there’s nothing behind it and also check the target’s surface to ensure BBs and pellets won’t bounce off in unexpected ways. Always protect your eyes using goggles.
- Try to hit the target (or whatever you are shooting at) from twenty-five feet away. You can buy targets or make your own, whichever you prefer.
- Print a picture off of the internet to shoot. This can be of an animal, an alien or anything else that you may like (or not like).
- Next try and hit a moving target that’s hanging from tree or pole in your safe shooting zone.
- Other things that you can try to hit are playing cards, balloons and water balloons and small items attached to clothing pegs.
- All the above steps will not only ensure that you get the necessary practice but will also be extremely fun.
- Next you can have contests and competitions with your friends to see who can hit the most targets. Be sure to keep scores.

You may look back fondly on the sports you enjoyed in childhood. Typically seen as ‘fun’ rather than sport, it may seem difficult to think they can still be enjoyed in adulthood! Keeping healthy and active is a resolution many aim for going into the New Year, and in order to make this achievable, it makes sense to do it in enjoyable ways. In this light, sport doesn’t have to be seen as drudgery and you can even take up some of the things you enjoyed in the past!
Getting fit is fun… and a blast from the past!
1) Skipping – requiring a skipping rope and nothing else, this is a fun way of burning calories and also toning you up! In fact, skipping has seen a resurgence even in gyms and is a commonly used workout technique
2) Rounders – you may associate this sport with school, but there are actually a large number of adult teams springing up across the country. Variations have even been made the game in some places so it can be enjoyed indoors!
3) Dodgeball – of course you may think of ‘Dodgeball’ the film, something which is sure to make you smile just as much is by playing the game itself. There are even classes at some sports centres; after all, it provides quite an intense workout as you run around, jump and throw!
4) Airsoft – you may have practiced with a BB gun when you were a kid, enjoying the high-adrenaline thrill. It’s good to know that there are a number of places where you can still enjoy the sporting benefits of airsoft. After all, shooting is a great way to develop your posture, aim and precision.

Moving house in general is a stressful time and it’s something that’s done to change an aspect of your life or a situation. Moving to the countryside has some incredible benefits for your health and also for mental wellbeing. Getting caught in the daily grind of a 9-5 job can increase stress levels and be catastrophic for relationships with family and friends.
Breathe a breath of fresh air!
The countryside offers cleaner air, fresh produce and a better way of life. For some people living on the outskirts of a town or city is a nice balance between working a 9-5 and having some of the peace and serenity of the countryside nearby to enjoy at their leisure. For some, moving to the countryside might be exactly what they need. Have a look at some reasons why you should consider giving up the hustle and bustle of the city:
The open countryside provides ample amounts of space, especially when compared with city flats and houses. For the same amount of money you would spend on a high-end apartment in the city, you could get a huge house, probably with land too, for the same price in the country.
When you live in the city, the air around you is full of bad pollutants from cars and industrial facilities. In the countryside the only pollution you may encounter is the smell of manure. The clean air also means you can see more of the sky at night and reveals stars, planets and satellites you would never normally be able to see from cities and towns.
Better food and drink
With the amount of space available, you might be able to start growing your own garden or farm. Even if you don’t want to, you’ll probably find farm shops nearby with organic eggs, fresh meat, milk and vegetables at cheaper than normal prices.
Get the right removal company
If you’re ready to leave the city and move to the countryside for a better way of life, contact Safe Removals today. They have years of experience with removals in London to a variety of places – including to the country.
According to the recent results of the October 2015 Morgan McKinley London Employment Monitor, London is a city seeing significant growth in job opportunities. New job roles have increased month-on-month by 7% and an even greater 28% year-on-year.
Is it really all about London?
So many major businesses are located in the capital, making it the ideal place for aspiring professionals to take their chance. With excellent transport links, including international connections, it is no wonder that companies are content to make themselves secure there.
Its scale alone could be one of the features which makes London so unique when compared to other British cities. And this shouldn’t dissuade people – but be celebrated! It means all-the-more opportunity for job hopefuls, whilst the amount of cranes and building work covering the city is also a sign of even more business taking shape.
Recruiters have the city sorted
Yet there is a difference between opportunities and achievement. It is easy to acknowledge the opportunity, but seizing it is another matter. Fortunately, effective recruiters operate in the city to make sure that job roles are filled by the best candidates. This is an important part of ensuring the renewal of the jobs market and allows for efficient business which drives further growth.
Therefore it could be seen that there is a great movement in employment opportunities, significantly supported by recruiting. This combination works well in the capital and could serve as a pattern to inspire others too.
A prime example of a recruitment to recruitment agency London expert is GSR2R. The agency works across industries and celebrates new job opportunities, as well as ensuring recruiters are in effective positions. For more information you can visit their website directly: www.gsr2r.com
Being a copywriter is great fun as well as offering you a rewarding career. But what are the attributes that will make you a successful copywriter? Well you need to have a good command of the language you are writing in, you need to be able to write concisely and with confidence but most of all you need to be curious.
Finding the USP
Being a bit nosey and curious may seem odd requirements in the trendy world of advertising and marketing but they will stand you in good stead. Why? Because you will not only need to find out about the product you are promoting but you will have to find that USP (Unique Selling Point) that can make or break a campaign.
Now simply asking your client what their USP is won’t do the job. At best it will get you the same old thing they’ve been trotting out for years, or at worst, some garbled nonsense because they don’t really know what you’re on about. So you have to be clever. You have to ask the right questions, talk to the people who make the product as well as the person hiring you. You have to find what is special about the product and how it solves the problems or enhances the lives of the customer. And, you won’t find the answer by looking on Wikipedia.
Once you have gathered all your information you will find that a USP will probably pop out and give you a concept you can hang the whole campaign on.
As you can see, being curious is a great quality for a copywriter. So, if you’re inquisitive, love ferreting out unusual facts and enjoy writing then copywriting is the perfect career for you.
A great way to enter the profession is to get top quality training with a copywriting course. The Writers Bureau offers a first-class home-study course written by experienced copywriter Nick Daws. You’ll learn how to do your research, how to write winning copy and how to find clients. It’s an all-in-one package to give your copywriting career the kick-start it needs. Plus, you can enrol anytime so you start as soon as you are ready. To find out more visit their website at – www.writersbureau.com or call 0161 819 9922 and they will send you a free prospectus.
