That Was The Best Party I Ever Had!

To create a special party for a child is to create a memory that lasts a lifetime. If it’s a birthday party, it has an almost-magical significance. It can be simple, and it need not be costly, but a successful party does take planning. There’s no greater reward than a hug from a satisfied child saying, “That was the best party I ever had!” The key to a successful party is in the planning. Be sure you have all the materials together beforehand for each activity scheduled. The birthday child can help in a number of ways, making the party extra-special while encouraging responsibility and creativity. A friend, relative, or the birthday child’s older brother or sister can be of invaluable assistance. A theme provides a focus and makes your party special. It reflects the interest and age of the birthday child. Make decorations to fit the theme. Decide before the party whether you will keep the decorations or send them home with the guests as favors. If they are taken by guests, be sure you have enough for each person, including the birthday child. Gear refreshments to the theme of the party, and keep them simple. Hot dogs, pizza, hamburgers, a special cake – these are the treats guaranteed to please. Artistic ability is not a requirement for designing your own invitations! There are countless internet sites to...

5 Ways to Unleashing an Ideavirus

The whole idea behind Unleashing an Ideavirus is to stop marketing at people and turn those ideas into epidemic viruses that will have others marketing for you. In the old days we sold a product by interruption marketing. Running ad, interrupting people with impersonal, irrelevant ads hoping that they would buy something. What is an ideavirus? I’m so glad you asked. It’s a big idea that takes off across a target audience that takes on a life of its own. For example, everyone watching the same TV show or reading the same book. It creates a buzz around that medium which creates an ideavirus. Almost like starting a rumor, good or bad you know it’s going to spread. While reading the book, Unleashing an Ideavirus, by Seth Godin I also started watching the movie The Social Network and it dawned on me the parallel between an ideavirus and Facebook; both started out as an idea that one person acted on that went viral. Traditional marketing promotes a product or service, but the currency of the future is ideas. An ideavirus begins with a sneezer. He is simply the person who promotes the idea, starts the rumor or creates the buzz in hive. There are 2 types of sneezer promiscuous and powerful. A promiscuous sneezer is a member of a hive that can be counted on to sell you something...

Sports Comparison – Tennis and Basketball

Can we describe the differences and the similarities between such different sports like tennis and basketball? This question seems a little unbelievably but I will try to make such comparison and we will see what will be the result. In my opinion the similarities between these two sports are easier to point out – and there is much lesser number of them. Every sport is injuring – and these two popular sports are injuring too. Breaking legs or wrists happens as often as other serious injuries. Bruises and scratches are so common that I should not even mention about it. Basketball is much more contact sport than tennis. Basketball players are fighting with each other to make a rebound or steal the ball often pushing themselves and staying on the opponent’s way. On the other way – tennis players have got no direct contact with each other. They are touching themselves only on the beginning and the ending of the match by shaking theirs hands or even giving themselves a hug. A tennis match is taking place in the open air mostly while the basketball matches happen only in sport halls. The time of the basketball match is limited and fixed while the time of the tennis match may be different. The result of the tennis match is determined after two out of three won sets by one of...
