Inspection balls are very important when it comes with machine alignment. If you know about industrial machinery, you must have been seen by some of the components in it. One component that often found is bearing balls. By using inspection balls you are able to determine the characteristics and functions of the bearing balls. They are easy to use, simple, and multifunctional. They are used as reference points for inspection applications in conjunction with coordinate measuring machines to accurately measure the workpiece.

E&O insurance or errors and omissions insurance is professional liability insurance. Basically it covers an individual or a company in the case if a client held you or your company responsible for not providing the expected results for a service that you have provided to the client. Many like doctors, lawyers, accountants, architects, engineers, IT professionals etc may require this insurance. In India, I believe Oriental Insurance Company, United India Insurance etc provides E&O insurance.

Small business franchise opportunities are definitely not limited to food kiosks and carpet cleaning. There are literally hundreds of businesses franchised in the United States, ranging from automotive and children’s franchises to pet and travel service franchises. Whatever kind of business you might be looking for, the spectrum of choices is limited only by your imagination and level of determination.
But how do you determine if a small business franchise opportunity is really right for you?
Franchise versus business opportunity
Perhaps the best place to begin your research is to briefly explore the difference between franchises and business opportunities.
A business opportunity is purchased outright. You, and perhaps your partners, own it and operate it under the name you have chosen. Typically, the seller makes his profit by delivering the equipment, real property, training or service that you just purchased. In some cases, the seller might earn residual income from your success (as is the case in a network marketing business). In most business opportunities, though, your relationship with the seller ends when you purchase the business. Basically, you are on your own at that point.
A franchise, on the other hand, is an ongoing relationship between franchisor and franchisee. The franchisor collects a fee up-front and also receives ongoing royalties in exchange for brand name recognition, an established business model, training and support. The franchisee receives the benefit of this brand name recognition and proven-successful business system. In exchange, the franchisee is required to follow established guidelines and policies regarding the operation of the business in order to ensure consistency from store to store.
Home business franchises are booming
One of the really marvelous benefits of a small business franchise is the ability to run it from your own home. In fact, many franchise companies encourage you to do so.
A home business franchise, allows you to enjoy the enormous benefit of an established company while avoiding the expense and headache of a storefront environment. Plus, many franchise companies invest their time in training you to run your franchise business from home. Your success is certainly in their best interest, so they will make sure you are properly trained and equipped.
One of the great benefits of being a home business franchisee is the ability to drawn upon the experience of other franchise owners. You will find that this network can provide a wonderful source of advice, encouragement and camaraderie.
Knowing your strengths and weaknesses are important when considering a small business franchise
While small business franchises have a considerably higher success rate than start-up businesses, you need to consider your natural strengths and weaknesses when deciding whether this is a good fit for you.
For example, being a team player is an essential factor in running a successful franchise of any kind. While you may be your own boss, you do not make the rules. You must be able to carefully and completely follow a system that someone else created. If you are willing to do so, you can successfully avoid many of the pitfalls responsible for the early demise of thousands of businesses.
Another necessary trait is the willingness to ask for help when it is needed. Again, this is the beauty of the franchise environment in that the small business franchise wants and needs you to succeed. In fact, the motto of the franchise industry is that you are in business for yourself, but never by yourself.
Do you consider yourself a “people” person? Do you enjoy providing a service or product that brings satisfaction to others? As a small business franchise owner, you will need to build loyalty and trust among your customers. The best and probably only way to accomplish this is by developing relationships with these important people. The good news is that if you answered “yes” to these two questions, you already possess two of the most valuable assets a franchisee needs for success.
Now, how do you feel about risk-taking? If the idea of having the safety net of minimum risk when starting your business appeals to you, then a solid, well-researched franchise is probably your best way to go.
After taking a serious and honest look at each of these personal characteristics, you should have a really good idea about whether investing in a small business franchise opportunity would really be your best choice. If so, do not be afraid to take the next step and begin carefully examining your wide variety of choices within the rapidly expanding world of franchising.
With so many highly successful niche markets to choose from, you are sure to find just the right fit.
Remember, a small business franchise requires much less capital than a traditional start-up business and certainly much less than a mega-franchise like McDonald’s, while providing a recognizable brand name and a business system that works.

Does the appearance of your office design really influence the quantity of your business partners and your good mood in the whole?
Of course, it may be asserted that the interior of your office leaves an impression on your partners and, of course, if it is crowded with different pieces of office furniture, it is not for your credit. So, the modern office furniture adds elegance and confident to your working place. By the way, nowadays the manufacturers start to produce the office furniture, which “care” about the state of health of employees.
Well, perhaps, you suppose that it is unnecessary to provide your staff with the high quality office furniture, because your office is a place where people work, but not relax. But you should admit that if a person doesn’t pay attention to different uncomfortable factors, his labor productivity is higher. As usual, we spend the most part of our days in office, and sometimes we usually feel exhausted at the end of a working day. Of course, it may be connected with some individual health problems, but as usual “wrong” modular office furniture may cause back pains and head aches. All these are not very good for the productivity. So, we offer you advice to purchase ergonomic office furniture, which are created specially for preventing different health problems.
Nowadays the home office furniture market is very competitive and you may choose really high quality product for appropriate price. First of all, investigate the market and visit several companies, in order to see the product you are going to buy. If you want to save your money, we offer you to buy in bulk all the necessary pieces of office furniture at one company. By the way, ask if this company has all the necessary certificates and provides you with such services as logistic management, storage, delivery and installation.
The other very important service which are provided by such companies is space planning. It is very necessary for every person to has his own territory just within several meters. Of course, as usual, in office it is impossible, so space planning helps you to create appropriate conditions for everybody. So, your office will seem spacious enough and there will be a lot of shelves, where everybody may keep all the necessary things without cluttering up a room.
The designer office furniture are represented in different forms and colors. Choose the right color scheme where light blue or beige predominate. Or on the contrary, buy the bright contemporary office furniture. Perhaps, green or red title chair adds more energy to your lifestyle. If you admire everything light and unusual, the office furniture desk, which is made of glass is just the best choice for. This item of furniture just floods the room with sun light and inspires you for new fulfillments. Create a world of comfort in your office, because it is only up to you to design the atmosphere of energy and prosperity.
Great office furniture is not only comfortable, it is also very practical and helps you stay organised: a place for everything and everything in its place.
So much so that your office could become as comfortable as your bedroom, the only thing missing would be your actual beds.

This is an e-mail received from a person working in a software company
I am working in Blore Software City . I want to share an incident of my life with you, hoping that it may be an eyeopener to you so that you can live more years.
On 27th October afternoon, I had severe heart attack symptom and I was rushed to the hospital.
After reaching the hospital, the doctors prescribed a test called angiogram. This test is basically to identify blood flow of heart arteries. When they finished the test, they found a 94% block in the main artery.
At this point, I want to share my lifestyle, which has caused this block in my heart arteries. Please see the below points of my lifestyle. If any of these points are part of your lifestyle, then you are at risk. Please change yourselves.
1. I was not doing any physical exercise for more than 10 years, not even walking-30-minutes-a-day for years.
2. My food timings are 11:00 AM Breakfast or no Breakfast, 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM Lunch and dinner between 11:00 PM and 12:00 midnight.
3. Sleeping in very odd timings, going to bed between 12:00 AM and 3:00 AM. Waking up at between 9:00 AM and 10:30AM ……. Sometimes spending sleepless nights.
4. I used to eat heavily because of long gaps between lunch and dinner, and I used to make sure that Non-Vegie is available most of the time. There were times when I did survey on city hotels to find delicious Non-Vegie dishes. I was never interested in vegetables and healthier foods.
5. Above all I was a chain-smoker for years.
6. My father passed away due to heart problems, and the doctors say heart problems are usually hereditary.
Once they identified the major blockage, they immediately do a procedure called angioplasty, along with 2 stitches, meaning they will insert a foreign body into the heart arteries and open the blocked area.
I learned from the doctors that 60% people will die before reaching the hospital, 20% people will die in the process of recovering from heart attack and only 20% will survive. I n my case, I was very lucky to be part of the last 20%.
1. You need to have a physical exercise for a minimum of 45 minutes daily.
2. Eat your food at perfect schedule, like how you eat during your school days. Eat in small quantities more times and have a lot of vegetables and boiled food. Try avoiding fried and oily foods. Fish is better than other non-vegetarian foods.
3. Sleep for 8 hours a day, this count should be complete before sunrise.
4. Stop smoking.
5. We cannot avoid genetic problems, but we can get away from it by having regular checkups.
6. Find a way to get relief from stress (Yoga, Meditation etc.).
So I urge you all to please avoid getting into this kind of situation. It is in your hands to turn the situation upside down, by just planning / changing your lifestyle and by following the above simple advices.
Here’s a natural therapy for opening up blocked arteries.
Please pass it on to your colleagues and friends.
Remedy for Clogged Heart Veins
1) Lemon juice 01 cup
2) Ginger juice 01 cup
3) Garlic juice 01 cup
4) Apple vinegar 01 cup
Mix all the ingredients above and boil in light flame for approximately half an hour. When the mixture turns to about 3 cups, take it out from the stove and set it aside for cooling. After cooling, add 3 cups of natural honey to the mixture and keep it in a sterile bottle.
Every morning before breakfast, use one tablespoonful regularly. Your vein blockage will open up. (There would be no need of any costly angiography or bypass operation).
