Wear Your Thinking Cap When Gambling Online

Written by Ryan D.

I receive many emails each week from people who deposited money at an online casino, only to walk away empty handed merely minutes later. Most of them are quite upset and understandably so. When you have lost money you want to blame someone. It's part ofrepparttar human psyche and a natural reaction.

When I ask people if they were playing according to a strategyrepparttar 138786 answer is normally something like "Huh? What's that?". Enough said. Now don't get me wrong. I am not suggesting we all go out and obtain science degrees and start crunching numbers in every playing session. I am however suggesting that you arm yourself with a few important tools before you deposit your hard earned money at an online casino. These basic tools are not rocket science, but they require you to do some work before you spinrepparttar 138787 reels or lay a chip.

Money Management

This is by far one ofrepparttar 138788 most important aspects of gambling at online casino but astonishingly one ofrepparttar 138789 least discussed subjects. A sound money management strategy consists of three important elements: budget management, bankroll management and betting limits.

Budget management is simple enough. Set your monthly budget and stick to it. Only gamble with more if you are playing with winnings. In fact, I have a rule for myself where I don't even do this. I cash my winnings in immediately. There's an old belief in gambling that money you have won will go back faster torepparttar 138790 casino than your own and I buy that.

Hardness of Gold, - misconceptions!

Written by Stuart Noble

The Scottish Heirloom Company, like most jewellery manufacturers, produces our product range in Sterling Silver, 10 kt (karat), 14kt and 18kt gold.

When choosing items in gold, customers are often reluctant to chooserepparttar higher karats of gold. This is not due torepparttar 138709 higher prices, but they have heard that 18 kt gold is softer and will wear away faster than 10kt. Is this correct? - The answer is a definite "NO!".

This is usually a surprise to many customers and also to, strangely enough, many jewellery stores sales staff..

This incorrect belief is kind of understandable, as it is fairly well known that pure (24 kt) gold is too soft to be used in most jewellery and has to be alloyed with other metals to make it harder and more durable. It is then believed thatrepparttar 138710 more ofrepparttar 138711 other metals that are added torepparttar 138712 gold,repparttar 138713 harder it becomes. The sales staffs in some jewellery stores, that mainly sell cheaper 10 kt gold items, also sometime state this idea in order to help sellrepparttar 138714 10 kt items.

Here arerepparttar 138715 approximate maximum "Vickers" hardness values ofrepparttar 138716 various Karats of gold. The higherrepparttar 138717 number,repparttar 138718 harderrepparttar 138719 alloy.

10 kt ............ 170 14 kt ............ 180 18 kt ............ 230 Sterling silver .. 65.

As you can see, contrary to most people's expectations, 18 kt gold isrepparttar 138720 hardest ofrepparttar 138721 alloys.

The term 'Karat', also spelled 'Carat' comes fromrepparttar 138722 Greek word forrepparttar 138723 seed ofrepparttar 138724 Carob tree. These seeds are very uniform in weight and were once used as standard weights when measuring very fine items. The term Karat or Carat is now also used as a measure ofrepparttar 138725 purity of gold, as a number ofrepparttar 138726 parts of gold by weight in every 24 parts of a Gold alloy. The other metals included in most gold alloys are usually copper, silver and zinc.
