When to take the pregnancy test

One of the most commonly asked questions is when to take the pregnancy test. Well, a pregnancy test should be taken when you feel or suspect that you are pregnant.

Pregnancy test

bnbnbnghghghggh

A pregnancy test is used to tell whether an individual is pregnant or not. The pregnancy tests are formulated in a way that the blood or urine is tested for a hormone called the human chorionic gonadotropin that is commonly referred to as hCG. This hormone will immediately available in the body after the fertilized egg is attached to the fallopian tube of the woman. This usually takes approximately six days after fertilization. So once a woman is expectant the hCG levels in her body will stand increasing rapidly and start doubling after every two to three days.

Types of pregnancy tests

There are different types of pregnancy tests. The most popular type of pregnancy tests is the blood and the urine tests. Let us explore these tests in detail as to what they entail;

The urine test

This is the most common type of pregnancy that can be done in the doctor’s office or at home. Many women usually take the urine test after they miss their periods by five or so days. One advantage of the home pregnancy tests is that they are convenient and private. This is ideal for individuals who want to prevent nosy people from poking into their affairs. They usually come with easy instructions which the user is required to follow to the letter. Following the instructions as detailed in the pack will yield accurate results. If the test is invalid, it can be retaken.

The blood test

The blood test is usually done at the health facility. It is not as common as the urine test. However, it is critical to note that this type of test can detect pregnancy faster than the urine test. It can detect this test after between six and eight days after fertilization. However, it takes a longer time to get the result as compared to the urine tests.

A qualitative hCG test

The qualitative hCG test is commonly referred to as the beta hCG. It works by measuring the exact quantity of hCG in the bloodstream. It can detect even the lowest level of hCG in the bloodstream. Since this test can be used to determine how concentrated the hCG is, it may be helpful in tracking any problems that may occur during pregnancy.

Best ways to raise capital for business

Funding a business can be a tough challenge. This is more so for the start-ups. One can have a very good idea, but it becomes hard to implement it due to lack of funds for the same. The following are the best ways to raise capital for business. Do not let your idea die before being implemented for lack of funds.

Personal savings

r4ty5jgrgefIt is a common saying that people should spend what is left after saving. Well, if one wants to implement their idea through business, then they should adopt this. Saving for your business may take you some time This method calls for patience since one cannot save for their business capital at a go. It also calls for discipline from the person saving the money for them to reach their goal. One may also need additional sources of income for them to make savings from. Their budget should also be adjusted to ensure they do away with the things they spend money on that are not necessarily a necessity.

Contributions from friends and families

If one’s savings are not enough to cover for the start up, they can approach their friends and relatives to help them contribute towards the same. One should be careful as they approach their friends and relatives so that they do not feel they are being bothered. This can only be achieved if one keeps constant communication with their friends and families.

Angel investors

The advantage is that one does not have to refund the money back even if the business fails. Neither does one need security so that they get angel investors. When the business succeeds, it is an advantage to both of you since you both gain. The other good thing about the angel investors, they invest not only the money but also their time, skills and expertise. This is attributed to the fact that the investor is also a share holder in the business so would do anything to ensure the business succeeds in every way possible.ertyhthrtr

Factors that facilitate good photography

It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words. Yes, that is true. A picture speaks more than words could ever tell. There are several factors which affect the quality of photography.

Factors that facilitate good photography

The location

Photography is about capturing and freezing a moment. Where the photograph was taken from plays a major role in making it a good photograph hence good photography. Most people prefer a serene environment to have their photos taken from depending on the reason for the photography. The location serves as a background of the photo. However, a good photographer can use any location to bring out a good photograph.4355yjtgfd

Expertise of the photographer

The photographer is the person behind the lens to ensure that the best photo is captured. A skilled and experienced photographer knows what it takes to make good photography. The photographer will ensure that the people or objects being photographed are well arranged, they can be seen in the lens and the photo is being taken at a good angle. All these are necessary to ensure that the end product is good photography. To gain this expertise, it will not hurt one if they considered going to school and adding some knowledge on this. The numbers of photos they take also play a major role in ensuring that they gain experience in their work.

The camera being used

The kind of camera used will determine what kind of photos that will be produced. A good camera produces high quality, clear photos. One should have a high-quality camera with clear lens and wide angle to ensure that a good image is captured. One can look online to see if they can find a good camera. Be careful to consider the camera’s specifications and know how each of its specs will affect the kind of photograph that will be produced.

Lighting

Light plays a major role in photography. Light is needed to ensure that the photo looks good. That is why some cameras have a flash light to ensure that they add that extra light when a photograph is being taken. This is why some photography sessions are scheduled depending on the weather. However, with the use of technology the light in a photo can be adjusted to make the photo brighter if there will be a need for that.

Organization

456ythrtereThis is basically how things are arranged in the photo to ensure that the end product is appealing. The people or objects are arranged in a certain defined order to ensure that they are captured at its best. This involves their sizes, color, and items being photographed. All these are determined to come up with an arrangement in a better way to ensure they come out looking their best.

The above are some of the factors that facilitate good photography. There are many other factors like orientation, the brightness of the photo among others. Choose an experienced photographer, and they will surely not disappoint you.…

Beck Lake Dog Area

Beck Lake Dog Area

Beck Lake Dog Friendly Area

The Beck Lake Dog Friendly Area (DFA) provides a safe, friendly environment for dog owners to unleash their dogs legally. Allowing our dogs to run freely is essential. It not only allows us to experience the joy of seeing our dogs so happy, but gives them the exercise they need to stay healthy.

Beck Lake DFA is not only for dogs, it is a place where the whole family can spend time together or enjoy a nice walk in the woods with their canine companions. A DFA is a place where people can recreate with their dogs, whether going for walks in the woods, playing a game of Frisbee, retrieving, etc. A DFA is a place that can be enjoyed by the entire family.


The gate must NOT remain unlocked!!!!!! Cook County Animal Control ONLY approved the dog park on the condition that the gate remain locked.
WE MUST KEEP THE DOG PARK PROBLEM FREE. Anyone there without a permit visible around their neck DOES NOT belong there!!!!
Group members must self police the area and help keep the dog park problem free.
DO NOT TAKE OUR DOG PARK FOR GRANTED, IT CAN BE TAKEN AWAY AT ANY TIME!!!!!!!
For more on this, see notes from recent meeting with Cook County Animal Control.

The entrance of our DFA can, at times, become congested. This can be frightening to shy or nervous dogs. For this reason we have moved the existing picnic benches away from gated area. PLEASE DO NOT ALLOW YOUR DOG(S) TO RUSH AND MEET NEW ARRIVALS ENTERING THE DFA. In order to avoid this problem, next season we will ask the F.P.D. to move the entrance of our DFA to a different location.

For people who are not registered with the Beck Lake Dog Area Group and do not receive newsletters through email or snail mail, Ed Burckart will post our newsletters on the large sign by the pond.

Beck Lake Dog Area Group gratefully acknowledges these individuals and organizations for their financial support in the early days, when it mattered most:
