Want to Save Money and Electricity? Eliminate “Phantom Power” Drain!

Today, many of the appliances, both large and small, and electronic devices in our homes draw a small amount of power even while they are switched off. This “phantom power” drain comes from VCRs, televisions, satellite and cable boxes and DVRs, stereos, computers, printers, kitchen appliances, clocks and clock radios, cell phone and portable music player chargers, and laptop chargers, almost anything plugged into wall power. This is especially true if the device has a remote control; the circuitry that responds to the remote must ALWAYS be on or the remote will not work. As much as three quarters of the electricity used to power many of these devices goes through these devices while the devices are off.

It’s easy to cut this costly power draw by unplugging these devices when they’re off. Of course, for some electronics, like clocks, televisions and the other devices related to them, cordless phones and the like, this can be very inconvenient. If your cordless phone is unplugged, you have no phone, you will have to reset all your clocks when you plug them back in, and the satellite and cable boxes always need power. But many devices like cell phone chargers, printers, print servers, fax machines, laptop charging cords, power supplies for computer speakers, etc., really don’t need to be on or even in “sleep mode” (where they still draw some power) overnight. Even leaving your computer on overnight consumes power needlessly.

The easy solution? Simply plug the electronics that can be left unpowered for a while into switchable power strips, and turn the power strips off when the devices will not be needed for several hours, like overnight.

Plug your computers, monitors, printers, speakers, external hard drives, USB hubs, etc. into a switchable power strip (preferably one with surge protection built in) and turn it off when you leave for the night, and then turn it back on in the morning.
 
On the other hand, some chargers do their work overnight, for instance the ones for your cell phone or MP3 player. So, to charge these devices, plug the chargers into another power strip that you turn on when you plug in your “daytime devices” to charge at night. Then, in the morning to start your day, turn off the power strip with the chargers for the cell phone and other “rechargeable daytime devices” and turn on the daytime working devices like the computer, etc.
 
The important thing is always think about power use and unplug … don’t just turn off – unplug or switch off with a power strip …  anything you’re not using. You’ll save a great deal of power, lower your electric bill, and save resources used to create the power that will not have to be generated. Even if you create the power with your own wind and solar generators, if you use less washing dishes, you will have more for other things.

5 Massive World of Warcraft Money Makers

Secret #1 – Blacksmithing

One of the methods to making serious money on a continual basis with the Blacksmithing professions is to make items that need renewing. By doing this you may at last have a continual flow of revenue. A pair of expendable items Blacksmiths can make are sharpening stones and grinding stones.

Secret #2 – Enchanting

Another profession that may make some decent gold in WoW is Fascinating . You will find that there’s a massive market on all servers for enchanting materials like Shards and Dust. To make the most profit with this profession you must consider focusing in disenchanting rather than enchanting.

You can use your disenchanting abilities to make stacks of materials for other enchanters that are too lazy to get them themselves.

Secret three – Engineering

Like Blacksmithing, the best things to make as an Engineer are the things which are regularly used. Bomb’s, Explosives, and Fireworks and great examples of these.

Secret four – Small Pet Vendors

For some reasons WoW players love tiny pets, this creates a completely unique opportunity for you to earn money in WoW is by selling small pets. Straightforward travel through Azeroth and pick up as many little pets as you can, then sell them in the Auction House.

Another way that you may use pets to make money if by farming the, Rare pets such as the Dragonhawks and Drakelings sell for massive profits.

Secret five – Instance Runs

There are a decent number of instances in WoW that can be used to farm green items. Sell these in the Auction House or disenchant them for the materials they provide. Once you have reached level 70 or above you are going to be able to instances alone, you can make plenty of gold by doing this.

The 5 tips mentioned above are straightforward but can be extraordinarily profitable if you are prepared to dedicate a little time to apply them. Always recall that if you would like to be mega loaded in WoW – you’ll need to be ready to work a little for it.

Lover and Player of World of Warcraft.

Mill Creek and Huttonsville, West Virginia

Mill Creek is a town in Randolph County, West Virginia, United States, along the Tygart Valley River. The population was 724 at the 2010 census.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mill_Creek,_West_Virginia

The Tygart Valley River — also known as the Tygart River — is a principal tributary of the Monongahela River, approximately 135 miles (217 km) long, in east-central West Virginia, USA. Via the Monongahela and Ohio rivers, it is part of the watershed of the Mississippi River, draining an area of 1,329 square miles (3,440 km2) in the Allegheny Mountains and the unglaciated portion of the Allegheny Plateau.

The Tygart Valley was first settled by Europeans in 1753 when David Tygart (for whom the valley and river are named) and Robert Files (or Foyle) located (separately) with their families in the vicinity of present-day Beverly. Although there had been no recent history of conflicts between whites and Indians in that immediate area, that summer a party of Indians traveling the Shawnee Trail discovered the Files cabin and killed seven members of the family. One son escaped and alerted the Tygart family, allowing all to escape. No other white settlement was attempted in present Randolph County until 1772. (It has been thought that Tygart was again among those settling then, but this is not certain).

The brothers John and Samuel Pringle, who had taken up residence along the Buckhannon tributary of the Tygart (in present Upshur County) in 1761, acted as their contemporary Daniel Boone was doing in Kentucky and guided numerous immigrant settlers into the main valley of the Tygart which at that time abounded in game and fertile bottomlands. Settlers of the 1770s and ’80s included the Connelly, Hadden, Jackson, Nelson, Riffle, Stalnaker, Warwick, Westfall, Whiteman and Wilson families.

Several minor actions occurred in the Valley during the American Civil War, including the Battle of Philippi, the Battle of Laurel Hill and the Battle of Cheat Mountain, all in 1861.
