Yes, as previously stated, you take home your equipment except for sensitive items. Those items are inventory accountable items like weapons (rifle, pistol, bayonet), night vision goggles, binoculars, compass, any electronic or communication devices. Your gear gets dusty, dirty and sweaty. Some items you can put into a washing machine to clean. Other items need to be scrubbed in your bathtub with a stiff brush and laundry detergent. Really muddy gear will be hosed off in your backyard or driveway and scrubbed with a stiff brush as well. Items like your helmet’s chin strap and head band need to be replaced every so often because they come in contact with your sweaty skin oils. Soldiers will get replacements from supply or buy them from Military Clothing Sales. Black metal fittings on your gear gets chipped and soldiers will touch up the spots with a black permanent marker or a brand of paint that resembles flat black fingernail polish. Once it’s cleaned and reassembled, you’ll be able to determine whether it is worn out and needs to be turned in for a new or serviceable one. You’ll also do an inventory of your items to see if something was lost or missing so you can request a replacement due to field loss. Once your gear is cleaned, inventoried and complete, you stick them into a duffle bag. Soldiers maintain their gear in two duffle bags called an “A” bag and “B” bag. Each carries a certain inventory of items. If a soldier is notified to deploy, they stuff certain day-to-day items into the A bag (contains uniforms, underwear, toiletries, etc.), grab the B bag (field gear) and heads to their unit.
I found a great article by Readers Digest (http://www.rd.com/advice/saving-money/74-car-care-tips-to-keep-your-automobile-in-topnotch-condition/) with some really useful tips that you would not normally think of. Here are some of my favorites: 1. Don’t fill up if you see the tanker, If you happen to see a gasoline tanker filling the tanks at your local gas station, come back another day or go to a different station. As the station’s underground tanks are being filled, the turbulence can stir up sediment. Sediment in your gas can clog fuel filters and fuel injectors, causing poor performance and possibly necessitating repairs. 2. Lighten up your key chain, Does your car key share a chain with a dozen or more other keys? That’s a pretty heavy load hanging off the car key when it’s in the ignition.The weight, combined with bouncing while you drive, can wear out the tumblers inside the ignition and eventually lead to ignition switch failure. To add years of service to your ignition switch, purchase a lightweight key chain that allows you to separate your ignition key from the others. Drive with only the ignition key in your ignition. If your ignition key “sticks” when you try to turn on the car, it’s a warning that your ignition switch is about to fail. Replace it before you get stranded. 3. Touch up nicks sooner rather than later , Touch-up paint won’t adhere well to rust. So be sure to keep some matching touch-up paint on hand so you can touch up any minor nicks, often found around door edges, before rust has a chance to form.
One reason? I will give you ten. One. Good makeup is prohibitively expensive. Let's look at one of the most sought after brands, MAC. Mac Ruby Woo is almost every makeup consumer's go to lipstick. It costs around INR 1500. Mac is entry level luxury and NOT exactly the Merc of makeup. Two. After you spend 1500 on a stick of red coloured wax, you should use it within a couple of years. Yes, it comes with an expiry date. If you are like me, you buy it because your friend tells you it's great. And then, you take it out of your dresser draw after five years to find that the stick is beyond its expiry date. Three. I don't wear makeup. So, I don't know why I buy stuff in the first place. And a lot of women are like me. We know nothing about concealers and foundations but we all have colourful containers of colloidal suspensions, liquids, solids, creams in curiously shaped containers. Oh, don't judge us. South Indian men have blazers lying around in their wardrobes. Four. I have makeup among my belongings because marketing wins. Of course, I buy things because I look at retail therapy as a way out of bouts of boredom. It might look very easy when you see women apply lip stick on their lips. But that's like deciding you can dive, fly and field like Jonty Rhodes after seeing him in action. I can't get the lip liner, lip stick and lip liner again right. Like ever. Five. Nail vanish looks great the first day, after your salon woman paints your toe nails in interesting colors. When you come home and run around without your shoes on, it looks dreadful. So, I end up covering my toes with shoes. Or, I reach for the acetone bottle. Six. Makeup involves several brushes that need cleaning. I don't like furniture because they require maintenance. Drat. Seven. Makeup stains clothes, wine glasses, bags and runs amok with sweat if you aren't careful. I am a Madras woman. So, I always factor sweat ruining my clothes and my face. Looking like Gotham's Joker is not what I aim for. Eight. You need touch up. That needs a bag. I travel with my purse and phone in pockets. I am a Fab India loyalist because they understand women's rights to pockets. That and the fact that its outlets are never crowded. Nine. Makeup is completely optional in life. And that optional element comes with a lot of bad karma in the form of animal testing, plastic packaging, rampant racism where brown women like me don't find the right shades blah blah. Ten. I can't just do my night routine of brush, slap water on the face, towel dry and sleep after a makeup-py evening out. It requires careful removal or it gets into skin pores and eyes and pillow covers. Everything said and done, I experiment with colours on my face once in a blue moon. Like this once when my friend and I decided to just apply make up and click our faces for fun.
The best way to touch up a tattoo is to have the original artist touch it up. With the original inks and method. Just like touching up a painting would be. I suppose it is possible to try a different technique but A. Remember tattoos are permanent, and B. Why?
The best way to draw is without placing your hand on the paper at all;, then you can use whatever tool is necessary to get the effect you desire,. If this seems difficult, you can use a mahl stick or ,maulstick,, as shown in this photo of me touching up a silkscreen poster that had some skips in it: Ugh -- that type is so '70s! Anyway, this tool is primarily used in painting, but there's no reason why you can't use it to draw detail (I use my whole arm, not the hand, to rough out the composition before I fill in the details). It allows you to keep your hand steady as you draw comfortably with some distance away from your work. You can use it in any number of positions; I was using a runny paint, so the work had to be horizontal, but usually when you're drawing, you should have the surface vertical, at arms' length from your body. Most artists make their own maulsticks. I found a nice blog post about this subject by art teacher Linda Carson here: ,Mahl stick: Make it or Buy it? Because a maulstick affords you space away from your drawing, you can see the whole thing rather than the piece that's not covered by your arm and hand, and this will always give you better results.
Yes- scrape the loose paint, touch up the bare spots with lacquer, spackel (if required), prime and paint. A lot of time, money and effort has gone into paint sticking to walls .. Edit- I love these questions.. “Is there a way to take a glued on mirror off wall without damaging the drywall?” came up last week. If it was easy it would have fallen off, but not many people put up mirrors with library paste. Stuff is made to work, especially in the Information Age- if it don't work, word gets around.. Google Frog Lube is Coconut Oil.
Let’s see. For eyebrows, I either use Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade, NYX pencil, or a drugstore pencil. (BTW, Brow This Way brow pencil from Walmart is under $5 and it’s awesome.) For a full face I like to use primer, concealer for some spots, and then liquid foundation. So, that’s another three. Next, I usually just apply a neutral eyeshadow color, something that complements the look- usually a shimmery or matte brown, and I ,might, blend it around the corners with something else. Not much of an eyeshadow art girl, but props to people who have the time to make some truly awesome looks! I like to put some highlighter on my nose, cheekbones, chin, and a little on the forehead. With all of these things on, next I like to use setting spray. Urban Decay stuff does the trick. After that, I may or may not apply eyeliner, usually a cat-eye or light line, but we’ll count it. Then, I put on black mascara. I only use eyelash primer on a super special occasion so I won’t count that. Last, I’ll put on a matte liquid lipstick- my favorite. I like them to be in the nude range but may go for something more dramatic. My favorite of all time is Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick In Bombshell. It’s pretty durable in my experience. So, that’s ten for a full face, but I’m not a MUA. I found a look that works and I’ve run with it. Normally, though, I just put on some lotion, spot-control with concealer if need be, do my eyebrows up and wear some mascara. Might put on some light lipstick, but nothing that’ll stick like paint. (Tiny lil’ touch up/no makeup vs. usual makeup vs. full face)
Many cars have gone well over 1 million miles. Just ask a New York cabbie. Maintnance matters, but original engineering is a big factor. The Mercedes Benz 300e of late 90s is an example of an over-engineered car. Lots of million-miler 300e cars out there. Lots of Volvos are million-milers. It depends on, (IMHO) decending order: original design criteria w.r.t. product cycles/life, oil changes, other fluids flush/replacement (cooling, brake, transmission, differential), the number of cold starts (for any given mileage, fewer is better), city vs highway driving (somewhat redundant to the cold starts issue), other maintenance (shocks/struts/bushings, etc), and your tolerance for normal cosmetic wear & tear and squeaks and rattles. I have a 2005 BMW 530i with almost twice that mileage. It’s virtually worthless as a trade in, but it’s rock solid, and it runs and handles handles great - ,everything, works, and almost zero squeaks and rattles. Other than normal maintenance, I’ve had a transmission overhaul ($1.2K at 120K mi), new shocks/struts ($0.9K at 140K mi), new suspension bushings ($0.8K, also at 140K mi.), and new front and rear window rubber seals ($0.7K at 165K mi), and those prices were all at the at the local BMW dealer (Classic BMW of Plano, Tx) that has a $120/hr shop rate for labor. I use JiffyLube to change the oil every 5–7 K miles, and it does not burn but about 1/2 a quart between oil changes. I use Chevron (with Techron) for fuel (burns clean). It’s spent half it’s life outdoors, both day and night, but the paint is holding up just fine (I keep it waxed). I did buy new front headlights to address the dulling/yellowing. And I have a detail guy touch up rock chips and minor dings about once every 2 years. Looks like new to the untrianed eye. Here’s a picture, from about 2 months ago. Perfectly respectable family car. It may out-live me, but I also have two 20-year-old BMW garage queen sports cars, that are quite well preserved. They absolutely will out live me. Maybe someone will teach my grandkids to drive a stick, in case there is any dead dinosaur residue yet to burn.
Unless you experience a major gale, I doubt the wind will have much of an effect. Touch up paint dries and sticks fairly quickly, so watch the weather and act accordingly. If you’re really worried, wait for a sunny summer day for touch up work.
How much money is my landlord making if I pay him $1500 rent each month, and the apartment costs $100,000 to buy? Right of the bat, if we apply the 1% rule, this is going to be a money maker for the landlord. As a really quick and dirty measuring stick, when landlords are viewing 100s or 1,000s of properties for sale, any place that you expect to rent for 1% per month of the purchase price is a viable place to investigate for purchase. In this case, you’ve got 1.5% and unless there are huge expenses, they’ve probably got a winner. Ok, let’s break down the numbers a bit: $100,000 property and let’s assume they just bought it. It’s an investment property, so the landlord probably had to put down 25%, which is $25,000. They have a $75,000 mortgage at 5% (pretty good rate for an investment property in 2019). That means out of the gate they’re paying about $312/month in interest. Now let’s add up all of the monthly expenses: $312 - Interest $250 - HOA Dues $25 - Property HO6 Insurance $25 - Liability Insurance $75 - Water and Sewer service $100 - Property Taxes $105 - Property Management Fee (7%) $100 - Maintenance reserve (things will break, so expect 1% per year go towards fixing things) The total monthly expenses for the landlord is $992 and the gross profit is $508/month. You rent it for a year, so that’s $6,096 for the year. $6,096/$25,000 = ~24% gross return on the initial investment in the first year. Unfortunately, that income will be taxed, so let’s assume that the effective tax rate is 33%, so that takes another $2,032. The net profit is now down to $4,064 for the year or ~$339/month. $4,064/$25,000 = ~16% profit. The landlord is doing pretty good, or are they? Ok, there are a few other things to consider. There were costs to fix up the place before you rented it. Maybe it was just some paint touch up and cleaning, and maybe it was a complete remodel. In addition, the landlord didn’t rent it out the day after they purchased it. Likely they had a month with it empty, maybe a few before you moved in. The reality is the profit may be quite a bit less than you think. The landlord also has to think about the future. After you move out, they have to make repairs, market, and find a new renter. Most likely they’ll lose a month of income again. Is the rent justified? Now this is a completely different question that is not related to the first question. Rent is based on market conditions and nothing to do with what the actual costs are for justification. Frankly, there is no justification for what a place will rent out for. If we look back about 5 years, many landlords were in dire straights with their rents. The place you rent today for $1500 may very well have been $1,000 in 2014. If that is what the market would bear, then that was what the rent was. If the landlord was scraping by on $8/month profit, they were negative cash-flow and likely losing money over multiple years. No one volunteered to pay the landlord more in those days, so the landlord won’t volunteer to keep the rents down now. The market and rents will drop again, but until then the market is what the market is.
