When I suggest that clients not work on problems, they often appear irritated, as if I'm telling them not to bathe or brush their teeth!  This is because most people assume that the only way to solve problems is to work on, or struggle,  with them.  I have found, however, that focusing on problems is one of the key ways of keeping them alive__as well as preventing you from moving past them.  Focusing on problems is also a key ingredient keeping people stuck in worry.

    I can assure you that there is a way to get from where you are to where you  without focusing on problems.  want to be   It's a natural, virtually efortless, yet far more efective alternative to the usual "roll up your sleeves and solve this problem" manner of dealing with issues.

    Recently I knelt down to clean up some glass and a piece got stuck in my knee.  I ended up at the urgent care center getting ten stitches.  We all know that the worst thing I could possibly do to the healing process would be  to poke or pick at my scab.  A wiser method is to treat the wound gently, creating the best possible healing environment. Miraculosly, the wound will heal all by itself.

    Most problems can and should be dealt with in a similar manner.  The thoughts we have around our vaious issues__business and othersiw__ create and trigger emotional reactions.  What usually happens is that we spend our time and energy dealing with these reactions instead of the actual issue.  simply put, when we are firightened, andgry, or impatient, we lose our bearings and get in our own way.  Instead of bringhing out the best in ourselves and others, we bring out negativity and squeeze our creativity.

     Deep down, we all know that for every problem ther is a solution.  Many times, the solution is obvious to a dispassionate observe, which is the primary reason corpoations as well as entrepreneurs hire outside consultants.  Often, the reason we cannot see these obvious solutions is that we are trapped in our emotional reactions and habitual ways of seeing lilfe.

    The alternative to dealin head on with problems is to clear your mind instead of filling it with painful, confusing details.  Quit down, reflect, and listen.  Allokw your wisdom, that softer part of your thinking, to surface.

  More often than not, seemingly out of nowhere, you will have an insight, an answer to your problem.  You may be shocked or even sruggle with how easy this process is to implement.  Nevertheless, the less you worry about your problems, the eassier they will be to solve!

PCS Founder Says Service, Versatility Spurs Success

Rs & R News

Houston, Texas – I the secret to the copier business is to find a niche, then Pete Peterson has found his in scouring for out-of stock parts for copiers.

     Peterson, who founded Professional Copier Service in 1985, has seen its size triple in the past decade, with copiers cramming most of the warehouse in the back.  The business is now 5,000 square feet. Peterson says he will likely get more space when the lease is up in a few years.

People call for spare parts; people call for supplies; we recharge the catridges, and (work on) the laser printers, small copiers and some fax machines.   We sell all the consumer items — the rollers, the blades – and all the circuitry, the circuit boards and the gears."

     PCS recycles all of the aluminum and metal that comes off the equipment, in addition to stripping down the machines for parts, labeling  the parts, then entering the inventory of parts onto computer.  He uses Office Machine Dealer sofware to run the various functions of the office.

     The business first started with copoiers then moved to fax machines and laser printers.  Later it moved to computers and then parts, including parts for machines that have been discontinued.

     "It's a very versatile, service-oeriented business, " Peterson said.  And one is which everything is under one roof.

     "It's a whole package combined.  If someone has an office where he utilizes a copier, a fax, a laser printer, typewriters and computers, he can call one company that services all different makes and models -  not just one brand of those different types of equipment, but all different types of office equipment.

Peter Peterson, owner of PCS Copier Service, Houston services catridges, laser printers and fax machines.  He arrived in the United States in 1975, emigrating from Aruba.

    Continued from Cover

     "So we sell them; we lease them; we rent them; we service them.   We do the whole brasd aspect of this business."

The Texas horned lizard (Phrynosoma cornutum) is one of about 14 North American species of spikey-bodied reptiles called horned lizards. P. cornutum ranges from Colorado and Kansas to northern Mexico (in the Sonoran desert), and from southeastern Arizona to Texas.[2] There are also isolated, introduced populations in the Carolinas, Georgia, and northern Florida.[3] Texas horned lizards may be native to Louisiana[4] and Arkansas.[5]

Contents

 [hide

[edit] Etymology

The horned lizard is popularly called a "horned toad", "horny toad", or "horned frog", but it is neither a toad nor a frog. The popular names come from the lizard's rounded body and blunt snout, which give it a decidedly toad- or frog-like appearance. Phrynosoma literally means "toad-bodied," and cornutum means "horned". The lizard's horns are extensions of its cranium and contain true bone.

[edit] Description

The Texas horned lizard is the largest-bodied and most widely distributed of the approximately 14 species of horned lizards in the western United States and Mexico. The length of an average Texas horned lizard is 69 mm (2.7 in) snout-vent length,[6] however the upper boundary for males is 94 mm (3.7 in) and for females it is 114 mm (4.5 in).[7]

[edit] Defensive behavior

Although its coloration generally serves as camouflage against predation, when threatened by a predator, a horned lizard will puff up its body to cause its spiny scales to protrude, making it difficult to swallow. The Texas horned lizard, along with at least three other species of the genus Phrynosoma, also has the ability to squirt an aimed stream of blood from the corners of the eyes and sometimes from its mouth for a distance of up to 5 ft (1.5 m). This not only confuses would-be predators, but also the blood is mixed with a chemical that is foul-tasting to canine predators such as wolves, coyotes, and domestic dogs.

[edit] Diet and decline

Horned lizards will shoot blood from their eyes to deter predators.

About 70% of the Texas horned lizard's diet is made up of harvester ants, though they supplement these with termites, beetles, and grasshoppers. In recent years, the Texas horned lizard has declined in about 30% of its range, though there is some indication it may be making a comeback. The decline is usually blamed on overuse of pesticides and the spread of nonnative, but highly aggressive and fiercely territorial, red imported fire ants. Both eradicate harvester ant colonies, destroying the horned lizard's principal source of food. The Texas horned lizard is now a protected species, and it is illegal to take, possess, transport or sell them without a special permit.

[edit] In Native American religion and art

Some Native American peoples regard horned lizards as sacred. The animal is a common motif in the art of many Native Americans in the Southwestern U.S. and in Mexico.

[edit] In popular culture

The Texas horned lizard is the state reptile of Texas[8] and, as the "horned frog", is the mascot of Texas Christian University.[9]

[edit] Current research

Horned lizards are primarily studied by researchers at Texas Christian University and the nearby Fort Worth Zoo, with raw data and fieldwork done by state employees. Further research toward the preservation of horned lizards is funded by sale of horned lizard "Keep Texas Wild" license plates.[10]

[edit] Temperament

Despite its fierce appearance, Texas horned lizards are extremely docile creatures. Since they have very few natural predators, they are not at all aggressive, and will never bite. Captured horned lizards will lie completely limp in a human's hand or pocket, playing dead, so they made excellent pets before they were threatened. Today, it is illegal to disturb or keep a horned lizard without a state permit.

The Texas horned lizard is a sunbather, and requires bright sunlight to produce vitamin D. Deprived of sunlight, the animal will be unable to produce vitamin D and will suffer from vitamin deficiency. For this reason horned lizards are most often found along the side of roads or other open, rocky areas, where they can lounge and take in sunlight.

Otherwise, horned lizards are most often found near harvester ant hills. Although they prefer to move very little, horned lizards can move quite fast if they feel there is a predator in the area, and will dart into thick grass and foliage to escape. Horned lizards are also excellent diggers, and can quickly burrow underground to escape threats.

[edit] Genetic biodiversity

Research aimed at preservation has revealed the Texas horned lizard is extremely genetically diverse, and isolated pockets of genetically distinct subspecies have been found throughout Texas. Though each of these subspecies is physically identical to all other subspecies, it is likely that they are specifically adapted for the region in which they are found. This makes it difficult to know how one subspecies would survive if it were reintroduced into a new area.

Federal horned toad pic crop.jpg

The most numerous and widespread subspecies of Texas horned lizard is found in the Panhandle region of Texas. Other distinct subspecies have been identified in East Texas, the Hill Country, and along the coastline. It is not known whether these subspecies can reproduce with one another over the long-term, making preservation of all of the subspecies even more crucial to the animals' preservation. It is also unknown whether any of these subspecies will show a particular resistance to the pesticides and fire ants threatening them.

[edit] Life Cycle

Horned lizards lay eggs, and are born in much the same way as some sea turtles. When it is time for a female horned lizard to lay her eggs, she will dig a hole and deposit them underground. When the eggs hatch, the new horned lizards will emerge and dig themselves out.

Horned lizards also burrow under the ground during the winter months, when they hibernate.

   Horned Toe Lizards Mascot- Recycled Metal Art From Mexico

  Home    

 Metal Art- The term environmental art is used in two different contexts: it can be used generally to refer to art dealing with ecological issues and/or the natural, such as the formal, the political, the historical, or the social context.

Depending upon how you look at its definition, earlier examples of environmental art stem from landscape painting and representation. When artists painted onsite they developed a deep connection with the surrounding environment and its weather and brought these close observations into their canvases. John Constable’s sky paintings “most closely represent the sky in nature.”[1] Monet’s London Series also exemplifies the artist’s connection with the environment “For me, a landscape does not exist in its own right, since its appearance changes at every moment; but the surrounding atmosphere brings it to life, the air and the light, which vary continually for me, it is only the surrounding atmosphere that gives subjects their true value."[2]  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Environmental_art
