"Gender selection is possible because of the way in which sex is determined by our chromosomes. Dr. Ericsson devised patented methods by which X and Y sperm can be separated through filtering processes. Sperm are "layered" over a column of human serum albumin, and they swim down the gradient where they are collected in the bottom layer.
"The fraction of sperm that contains the male (Y) bearing sperm is used for insemination if a boy is desired. It is effective 70?75% of the time.
"The fraction of sperm that contains the female (X) bearing sperm is used for insemination if a girl is desired. It is effective 70?72% of the time."
Use personalized medicine more effectively. Empower consumers by interpreting DNA testing and learning more about infant gender choice by genetics.
Open a business or find a job creating and delivering digital video recordings-usually free-as podcasts. If you want to make money with video podcasting, offer to sell a sponsor's publicity and advertising on your video, or an author's creative works, interviews, or sermons. You can even show people how to fill out tax forms using a video podcast for instruction on most any subject people can learn independently.
People who subscribe to video podcasts usually want to view for free. You can charge for a course to train or teach a class by video lecture and/or demonstration, but what if you want an actual paid job in video podcasting? And can you make more money in video than in the older, audio MP3 file 'radio' podcasting?

How are you going to clarify and resolve the issues, problems, or situations in your plot by the way your characters behave to move the action forward? How do you get measurable results when writing fiction or creative nonfiction? Consider what steps you show to reveal how your story is resolved by the characters. This also is known as the dénouement.
Dénouement as it applies to a short story or novel is the final resolution. It’s your clarification of a dramatic or narrative plot. What category of dénouement will your characters take to move the plot forward?

There are 35 questions—seven questions for each of the five pairs. There are 10 choices, five assessments and a section on how to write a novel/story/script by developing depth of character that drives your plot.
As a DNA-driven genealogist, you would prepare illustrated and text-driven reports, colorful CDs, brochures, press kits, covers, Web sites, and guides to interpreting the DNA-for-ancestry-based information. You would interpret tests for deep ancestry to your clients.
What verbal skills and any other preparation would you need to empower consumers with knowledge from reports you receive from your partnering DNA-testing laboratory? Would you also interpret reports from genetics counselors testing for predisposition to diseases? Or emphasize only deep ancestry?
Would you need a self-taught science background, a genealogy hobby, or only marketing and communications experience? Who does the actual interpreting? How would you contract with DNA laboratories to send reports and other information related to ancestry?
You may be a genealogist, a personal historian, or a life story videographer thinking of partnering with a DNA-testing laboratory. Your business would be to make complex information easy to understand and interpret in plain language DNA reports from scientists to genealogy clients and surname groups. The DNA tests could be for ancestry and/or nutritional genomics issues.
Words in memoirs or life success story gift books have a life of their own. The purpose of a hand-made, finely bound memoirs or business success-story gift book is to show how two or more people bring out the best in one another.
You'd be surprised how many people are satisfied to pay up to $10,000 (or more depending upon the publisher) to have only one copy of a hand-bound hardcover book published about their event or life story. What does it take to create and publish a memoirs gift book commemorating a Bar Mitzvah, confirmation, wedding, or true experience?
What quality of personal book do you want to make from scratch-writing, printing, and binding? As far as printing and binding, you can make one finished book at a cost to you of only $1.50?$4.50. What you charge a client depends on what it costs you.
If you create and publish a custom gift book, you'd publish only one copy of a hand bound, hard-cover book. The tome would contain anywhere from 60 to 100 photos.
Text material based on phone or live interviews running at least two hours for one person (or more if needed and about two hours spent per each interview) would be about 80 to 120 published pages-slightly more, but only if necessary.

Familiarity sells in fiction. Give 'em the familiar because it sells big. Don't given 'em Crystal Pepsi when they expect classic Coca Cola to be brown.
In other words, the same Cinderella or Cinderfella story sells in ancient China or Egypt as it did in Europe in 1900 as it does today in Internet romances or virtual worlds avatars. So two points, 1) familiarity and 2) universal values always make best sellers in sagas, novels, multimedia books, and scripts or games.

Write eulogies and anecdotes or vignettes of life stories and personal histories for mini-biographies and autobiographies. Then condense or contract the life stories or personal histories into PowerPoint presentations and similar slide shows on disks using lots of photos and one-page of life story.
Finally, collect lots of vignettes and flesh-out the vignettes, linking them together into first-person diary-style novels and books, plays, skits, or other larger works. Write memoirs or eulogies for people or ghostwrite biographies and autobiographies for others.
The vignette can be read in ten minutes. So fill magazine space with a direct experience vignette. Magazine space needs only 1,500 words. When you link many vignettes together, each forms a book chapter or can be adapted to a play or script.
Included are a full-length diary-format first person novel and a three-act play, including a monologue for performances. There's a demand for direct life experiences written or produced as vignettes and presented in small packages.
Save those vignettes electronically. Later, they can be placed together as chapters in a book or adapted as a play or script, turned into magazine feature, specialty, or news columns, or offered separately as easy-to-read packages.
How do you ask for help in finding a job from a letter to a stranger, acquaintance, or business networking contact? How do you write a cover letter that will never be misinterpreted as a sales pitch or autobiography?
How do you plan, write, and format an outstanding book proposal that lets the reader see the bottom line-profit for the publisher?
Positioning your goal or project first means going where no one has gone before. It's where the competition is missing. Go where no one else has gone before when you plan, write, and format great cover letters, follow-up letters, and book proposals.
Cover and follow-up letters or proposals could be applied to book proposals, book proposal cover letters, written marriage proposals, pre-nuptials, and courting. Cover letters could apply to love letters, letters to friends and relatives, business contacts at trade shows, or literary agents.
You will be planning events for your clients and their prospective employers. You'll need to really work a room to find clients as well as niches or jobs for clients when networking at professional associations and trade shows. Most frequently, you'll be asked to write, evaluate, and repackage resumes, cover letters, and other summaries of qualifications of your clients.
A resume is a summary of qualifications. A career coach helps clients find success by taking step-by-step detailed, concrete strategies that solve specific problems, get results, and reach a defined goal. A resume writing business online can be combined with a career coaching enterprise. The steps are outlined here for you to follow in chronological order to open and operate a resume-writing service business and also a career coaching enterprise, online from your home, mobile location, or office. You can telecommute online and still help people find direction by offering information, training, or consulting services.
Here's how to open an online business at home presenting and packaging your clients' competencies. Make your living writing resumes, business letters, and being a job coach. Help clients obtain appoints for interviews that may eventually lead to finding work. Write and repackage resumes and all types of business correspondence-from cover letters and follow-ups to direct mail or trade show sales letters.
Will words take second place to illustrations? Decide first whether you will write a story book or a picture book. Then use the images in your poem to clarify your writing. You won't be able to read a picture book into a tape recorder or turn it into an audio book or radio play. You will be able to narrate a word book for audio playing.
Start with an inspirational poem, proverb, or song lyrics. Ask children what makes them laugh. You can make something out of nothing. You can make a story out of anything intangible, such as an idea with a plan still in your mind.
Capture your children's dreams, proverbs, song lyrics, and the surprise elements that make them laugh. Record imagination, "what-if" talk, and personal history. A folktale or story is something that could come from any place in the past, from science, or from nothing that you can put your hands on.
What children want in a book, poem, or folklore is a cave where they can go to be themselves. When suspending belief, children still want to be themselves as they navigate fantasy.
The story book becomes a den or tree house where children can go inside, shut the door, and play. Introduce children to poetry by showing how you transform your poem into a children's book by expanding and emphasizing significant events in the life story of one child.
Poems, memorable experiences, significant life events or turning points are all ways to make something out of nothing tangible. You begin re-working a concept, framework, or vision. Here's how to write, publish, and promote salable material from concept to framework to poem to children's book-step-by-step.
Here's how to write news or magazine articles in plain language about the science behind foods, supplements, or lifestyles for readers without technical training. As freelance writers, students, librarians, educators, parents, nurses, nutritionists, chefs, speakers, or current information researchers learn how to inform general magazine or newspaper readers about current scientific findings that help people better control their blood sugar, lifestyles, and nutrition.
For example, diabetes is expected to surpass cancer and heart disease as America's leading killer by 2010. Learn how to write or speak in public about nutrition, consumer economics, current epidemics, or blood pressure issues for popular media.
Practice here how to interview experts. Write actual questions you'd ask professionals. Ask to interview those with reliable information by sending a list of questions ahead of the interview. Gather speakers for conference panels by volunteering at professional associations' meetings. The nutrition glossary at the back of the book is a helpful resource for definitions.
Shifting to another topic-attention deficit disorder-learn what nutrients and essential fatty acids help to manage attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Can you write about or debate issues and controversies on the health benefits of phytocompounds? Examples of phytocompounds include quercetin and resveratrol. Can you find the words 'phytocompounds' and 'polyphons' in your dictionary? How would you discuss the words 'quercetin' and 'resveratrol?' Learn to define these terms to the general public in popular consumer magazines. Write news articles, organize debates, manage your term papers based upon the credibility of studies mentioning health benefits. Avoid food misinformation in the media.
How do you explain the reduced cardiovascular risk and similar benefits of the latest nutrition-related research? Can you write in plain language for a magazine or newspaper how fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids, olive oil polyphons, and fruits, vegetables or herbs offers specific health benefits? If you're thinking about a career in consumer economics communication or nutrition journalism, or are a school librarian or educator, here's how to work with reliable resources.
We all marry our mirrors, someone who reflects how we feel about ourselves at the moment. Every wife is a mirror of her own husband's failures, and every husband a reflection of his wife's successes.
If you want to make money, you find a void in society and fill it. With more than 60 percent of women being snuffed, it's no wonder a sharp promoter saturated the market with anarchists feeling their inadequacies.
Their words fall like an embroidered saddle on a jackass. Remember when only female failures married when career success eluded them? Anarchists' dolls don't expand into motherhood. They're squeezed into silver plated girdles where the only private space is a purse.
Facts you can sell can be uncommon news, results of research, indexing publications, finding trivia details, research and findings on recruiting people for medical trials done by pharmaceutical companies to facts on ancient military strategies for historians and fiction authors or facts on success stories and corporate histories, biographies, and news on inside information, interviews, and trends. You can find facts that are important to a few niche markets or to think tanks seeking trends in behavior or technology, and you can sell the facts to trade journals, professional associations, corporations, or institutes.
You don't have to be an expert to find facts, just gather and glean the newest or oldest facts from experts from different sides. Separate the facts from the opinions and sell the facts.
With the future marriage of genealogy to smart cards, online databases, or similar authentication technology for family history, population registration (census), and library research, it may be easier to research family lines, not only by DNA matches through DNA testing for deep ancestry, but also with smart, electronic cards designed for electronic identity. It's also a way to track military records as another way to trace family history.
Careers and research may focus on various state libraries or historical associations. History and family studies are part of an interdisciplinary liberal arts program that emphasizes research and writing. Journalism courses help round out your ability to express in plain language the results of your reading, explorations, and interpretations.
Obtaining a degree or even taking one course or self-study in Family, Public, or Social History can lead to broad, interdisciplinary careers. Graduate work in library science, law, journalism, public history, or genetics counseling (with a double major in the life sciences and social work) also lead to careers in which an historical education may be used.
Learn healing techniques from creative writing therapists using the tools of music, visual imagery, and expressive arts therapies in the background. It's a multimedia approach to enhancing creativity, memory and to write salable work.
Are you interested in guiding life story writers in a variety of environments from life-long learning or reminiscence therapy to working with hospice chaplains? Be an entrepreneur, career coach, or manuscript "doctor" organizing groups using music and art in the background to inspire authors. Design brain-stimulating exercises for specific types of writing.
Tired of analyzing puzzles to build brain dendrites and stimulate, enhance and exercise your own memory or those of groups or clients? Help yourself or others write salable works and move beyond journaling as a healing tool. Write therapeutically about a significant event in anyone's life against a background of art or music.
Fold paper to make pop-up books, gifts, or time capsules where you can illustrate and write. Even add MP3 audio files.
The sample play and monologues portray events as social issues. One true life example for a skit is the scene in the sample play written from first-person point-of-view about a 1964 five-minute train interlude when a male passenger commands the protagonist not to cross between cars while the train is in motion.
The passenger stands between the cars next to his wife who says timorously, "Let her go, dear," after the wife notices the young protagonist wears a wedding ring. The protagonist tells him she's pregnant, returning from the john, and needs to get back to her family.
Instead, he squeezes her head in a vise-like grip, crushing her between his knee and the wall of the train. He kicks at the base of her spine, yelling stereotypical ethnic epithets while passengers ignore events.
After the sample play and three monologues for performance, you will have learned how to write ethnographic dialogue and select appropriate scene settings. Also included are e-interviews with popular fiction writers.
"At the same moment of my appointment?" Consuelo smirked as she and Kendall entered the cell, squeezing behind Redling.
"I'm not going to leave you alone in here," Kendall said, rolling his eyes in contempt at his colleague, Warden Redling.
Carr had the circuit boards spread across the computer shell. "Controller failure." He jabbered at the innards.
"Watch those tools," Redling specified. "We count 'em."
"The computer is a fetish," Consuelo said. "Watch how Carr is magically influenced by the power of the fetish."
Carr was a convicted murderer. The jury judged him a cold-blooded killer. Consuelo wondered whether he felt any empathy, or would the many tests reveal that he is a sociopath without conscience?
She turned on her camcorder. "Look into the camera," she said. "I want that unblinking look in your eyes on video tape."
"Since when could you resist the power of the media, doctor?" Carr chuckled. " Too bad the power's down, the generator is sputtering, and soon you'll all be locked in here with me, Dr. Lopez."
The samples and templates of proposals, query letters, cover letters, and press kits will help you launch your proposed book idea in the media long before you find a publisher.
Use excerpts from your own book proposal's sample chapters as features, fillers, and columns for publications. Share experiences in carefully researched and crafted book proposals and query or cover letters.
Use these templates and samples to get a handle on universal situations we all go through, find alternatives, use the results, take charge of challenges, and solve problems-all in your organized and focused book proposals, outlines, treatments, springboards, and query or cover letters.
Anna Falco added something more to that: her belief that couples with self-respect will respect each other. Not one of Anna's clients came from families where the husband and wife or child and parent respected one another. That could be one huge reason why family wars grew into world wars.
Now family wars had become full-blown race wars in the streets of Los Angeles. Skip an octave, and old hatreds of differences fanned flames between the 'haves' and 'have-nots.'
She offered to trade the wisdom of age for the energy of youth. But it all boiled down to honor between family members. Anna explained the difference between self-esteem and self-respect.
Being an older woman reminded Wrenboy (the troubled court-appointed street teen that she had adopted) of a mother hen capable of caging his freedom. Her lined face reminded him of his own mortality at a time when he felt invincible and desperately lonely for a loving family.
Would he fear her strident voice hammering him back into childhood? Or would he accept her globetrotting to repair the world with kindness? In his search for power and autonomy, he concluded it is easier to rebel.

It was eighty degrees inside the recording booth and humid. On the advice of her lawyer, she decided on a guest for the evening at the last possible minute-Gene Wright.
He wheeled his desk chair in a semi-circle and clicked a ball point pen nervously until she extended her hand and steadied him. Her voice was courteous, but patronizing. "We're on the air in five seconds-no background noise, please!" He braced his chair against her desk.
She pinched the pen out of his fingers and tossed it into a cup filled with pencils. He grabbed it from the cup, spilling the contents over with a crashing sound.
"Klutz!" She screamed in a whisper. "You'd make a fortune in comedy reviving the Three Stooges."
"Sorry, it's my gold award pen." Gene looked up at her with the child in himself giving her the pout of a newborn lamb.
The red lights blinked "On Air," and her silver gaze of false innocence imploded into a critical squint. "We have a surprise guest tonight, folks," she murmured mysteriously. The words tingled strangely on her tongue.
A caller, Gene Wright, nursed the microphone as if it were too precious to defile. "Why would someone offer a foreign guy two million to murder you?"

He learns his father, a man with Etruscan enemies, is missing. After childhood years spent learning Greek, Latin, and Aramaic from diverse sages in Alexandria, seeking proper, holistic parenting is no problem. He owns the Antikythera device, a mechanism of complicated gears physically representing the Callippic and Saros astronomical cycles. It's not only gears he wants to mesh. It's the human condition. And he looks for patterns in nature.
Quintus believes in proper holistic parenting as an adventure within a timeless search for the perfect nurturing mother. His goal and life purpose are achieved through practical deeds. He is an ancient builder of dreams so far ahead of his century, that he finds time travel a gift of destiny. For Quintus, the explorer and observer of comparative thought, the best way to study the human condition is through art. He believes that peace in the home feeds the growth of consciousness.
At night, the space station's library is eerie, dim lighted, and in places, simply velvet-shadow dark, except for the human's dogs. They mingle with the shape-shifting immortal space dogs that prowl the space station library's corridors and live among the rows of computers.
Career dogs just want to have fun traveling onboard the space shuttles as working companion dogs, never locked behind gates. These dogs don't bite. They are dogs with purpose and passion.
This is a team of working dogs that can shape-shift from dog to human and human to dog live outside of time. And in this century, they work for a mother and daughter astronaut team.
"Which dog sprayed wolf graffiti on the space shuttle?" A ground controller dog, a mellow, Chocolate Labrador retriever, studied the photo. "But how did it get there?"
"Maybe it's a paste-on tattoo that the astronauts put on board to celebrate all those years here," the pack leader howled in a licorice-sweet yelp. The omega canine hurried to switch off another computer.
'Retriever,' formerly a "library greeter dog" but now the ground controller's pet, sniffed with curiosity. He stretched and curled up on top of the filing cabinet.

In essence, the book has a dual focus. First it attempts to locate and describe the land of the early settlers. This is done by means of a superb series of plat maps, drawn to scale from original surveys and based both on certificates of survey and patents. These show, in precise configurations, the exact locations of the various grants and lots, the names of owners and occupiers, the dates of surveys and patents, and the names of contiguous land owners. Second, it identifies the early settlers and inhabitants of the area, carefully following them through deeds, wills, and inventories, judgment records, and rent rolls.
Finally, in meticulously compiled appendices it provides a chronological list of surveys between 1721 and 1743; an alphabetical list of surveys, giving dates, page reference--text and maps--and patent references; a list of taxables for 1733-34; and a list of the early German settlers of Frederick County, showing their religion, their location, dates of arrival, and their earliest records in the county.

According to American Demographics, 113 million Americans have begun to trace their roots, making genealogy the second most popular hobby in the country (after gardening). Enthusiasts clamor for new information from dozens of subscription-based websites, email newsletters, and magazines devoted to the subject. For these eager roots-seekers looking to take their searches to the next level, DNA testing is the answer.
After a brief introduction to genealogy and genetics fundamentals, the authors explain the types of available testing, what kind of information the tests can provide, how to interpret the results, and how the tests work (it doesn't involve digging up your dead relatives). It's in expensive, easy to do, and the results are accurate: It's as simple as swabbing the inside of your cheek and popping a sample in the mail.
There are several types of genealogical scenarios you can pursue, such as:Family lore has it that a branch of our family emigrated to Argentina and now I've found some people there with our name. Can testing tell us whether we're from the same family?My mother was adopted and doesn't know her ethnicity. Are there any tests available to help her learn about her heritage?I just discovered someone else with my highly unusual surname. How can we find out if we have a common ancestor?
The authors reveal exactly what is--and what is not--possible with genetic testing. They include case studies of both famous historial mysteries and examples of ordinary folks whose exploration of genetic genealogy has enabled them to trace their roots.
