Gimme, gimme never gets

Just home from a week in paradise, at the Hollyhock Retreat Centre. My life is truly blessed. I worked and hung out with 30 environmental activists who are working in a variety of ways to protect and restore wildlife and nature in the west – from San Francisco to Alaska, from Vancouver Island to Winnipeg (with one pleasure activist from New York City thrown in there to help mix things up a little).

With all the giving of themselves that these activists are doing on behalf of all of us who don’t have the time or inclination to fight the battles that need to be fought on behalf of all the species and ecosystems that are under threat, I am compelled to both give today and to ask those of you reading today to help me out in a small way.

A friend of mine recently co-wrote a book with a best-selling author. This book is called The Power of Giving: Creating abundance in your home, at work and in your community.

The book's goal is to start a movement to dramatically increase giving in our communities. And that's why the authors are donating 100% of the profits from sales of The Power of Giving to the registered charity, Tides Canada Foundation.

The Power of Giving explores all the ways we can give: time, money, kindness, forgiveness, and much more. Best of all, you'll create more abundance in your personal life, your home and your work when you follow the simple yet powerful messages in this book.

That’s the sales pitch. And here’s a lesson in marketing and why the appeal is to buy a copy of The Power of Giving today:

If 200 people purchase a copy of this book today, on June 30th, The Power of Giving will become an Amazon.ca bestseller. If it becomes an Amazon.ca bestseller, then bookstores will order more copies. If bookstores order more copies, then more people will buy the book and more money will be donated to charities. If charities have more money…they can do more work on our behalf.

Easy! You benefit from the great wisdom in the book, and charities will benefit too. So hook yourself up with The Power of Giving by purchasing a copy today. It’s just $12 Canadian...and it makes a great gift…I bought four copies myself…mom, dad, mom-in-law, you'll each be getting one.

One of your articles is good but other are average. Your blog is good anyway.

Texas Hold'em is the most popular poker game in the world. Almost all the major tournaments are played in this version. You can use the set betting limits or no limit play. The basic rules of the game are relatively simple and can learn quite quickly, but in the achievement of mastery can take a long time. This article presents the most important rules of Texas Hold'em poker.
GAME
In Texas Hold'em usually plays in a standard 52 card deck. The game can participate from two to ten people. Before the start you need to determine which player will be a symbolic "dealer" in the hand. This does not mean that the player actually has to deal cards (online cards are dealt automatically and casinos deal with the dealers). Place this player marked a special ring (called "dealer button" or "button"). It lists which players must pay for their blinds (called "blinds"). These plants are the nucleus of the pot, so that every hand is "anything to win". Always two players must pay the first blind bets (they are put into the pot before the players see their cards). One person pays the "small blind" (called "small blind"), and another on the left - the "big blind" (called the "big blind"), usually two times the small blind. What symbolic hand dealer is changing, so that each of the players from time to time is the dealer, paid a small and big blind - all at the same frequency. Gratis bonos poker

When the blinds are already in the pot, every player gets two cards face down. These are the player's hole cards (called "hole cards"), for inspection only to the owner and he can only use them in the game. Then the middle of the table is gradually taught the five community cards that all players can use to create the best hand. Of the seven cards available to make the best possible five-card hand.
ROUND FOUR AUCTION
Before the flop (PRE-FLOP) - first round of betting. All play that occurs before detection of the first three community cards (the "flop") are referred to as "pre-flop". Players are watching their hole cards and have a chance to play first.
The player sitting to the left of the person who paid the big blind, the first decision. This item is called "under the gun" (literally "under the gun" / "under the gun"). This is because it is the worst in terms of decision-making.
Each player has at this stage to play the following options:
Belt / fitting of / Reset card (called fold): Playing it means giving up the game later in the hand and muck. Match, you lose the right to the money inserted into the pot, even if you have paid the blinds.
Check (called call): Playing it means that the alignment of early plant you want to continue playing the hand. Remember that after the flop will also be able "to wait" (called "check"), if no one before you has not paid the first bet.
Skewer (called raise): Playing it means that you want to place a bet higher than its predecessor. If your round of betting nobody else's set, your play will not puncture, only placing a bet (ang "bet").
