How to pick the perfect wedding rings

Are you getting married in a couple of months? Then you’ll need a set of wedding rings. 

Finding the perfect design is easier said than done. That’s why the goldsmiths of Wim Meeussen give you some buying tips:

1) Pick the right material

First and foremost, you need to decide on the material of the wedding ring. Do you want something classic in yellow gold? A trendy white gold ring? Or do you prefer the feminine beauty of rose gold? This choice is very important, because it influences the look and feel. 

2) Choose a purity

Once you have picked a material, you need to choose the purity. Purity is represented by the carat/karat number. Usueally, wedding rings come in 14 and 18 karat gold. The higher this number, the higher the price, because it contains more precious metals. So a 18 karat ring is more valuable than a 14 karat model.

3) Find your favorite design

Next, it’s time to choose a design. Wedding rings come in various shapes and sizes. There are very thin rings, thick ones, with a modern style or a classic look, with or without a diamond, etc. There’s plenty of choice for everybody. Just make sure that the design matches your wedding dress. This way, they complement each other.

4) Don’t follow trends

A piece of advice when you’re buying a wedding ring: don’t follow trends. Most trens only last a couple of years. But a wedding ring lasts a lifetime. That’s why it’s a good idea to go for a classic design that will look good in ten or twenty years from now.

5) Go for a custom made ring

If you can’t find the perfect ring for your wedding; don’t panic. You can always order a bespoke design. There are plenty of goldsmiths that can turn your dreams into reality. Custom handmade rings might not come cheap, but it’s a small price to pay to find the perfect design for this special occasion.

An Introduction to Indian Tourist Visa and Who Needs It

For years, India has been renowned as a diverse nation with a mixed cultural background, secularism, and distinct natural landscapes. This has eventually served the purpose of tourism in India and captivated the attention of a plethora of local and foreign tourists. Although Indian tourists can traverse in entire India with no difficulty or restrictions, foreign tourists are required to obtain an Indian tourist visa to get an entry in India. A tourist visa is an official permit granted by the Indian government to the eligible foreign nationals who intent on traveling to Indian to explore its tourism sector. The purpose of travel served on an Indian tourist visa is recreation, sightseeing, or visits to friends or relatives. You cannot obtain a tourist visa for any purpose other than these, neither business nor medical treatment. Also, if you are a foreign national and applying for an Indian tourist visa, make sure you don’t own any occupation and residence in India.

For foreign tourists, an Indian tourist visa will be a permit to explore most of the country but not all. There are certain regions in India, where even an Indian tourist visa holder is not permitted to enter. These areas include certain secluded and security concerned regions like Arunachal Pradesh, Ladakh, northern Himachal Pradesh, Sikkim, Uttarakhand, border regions of Rajasthan, Jammu and Kashmir military area, etc. This rule has been introduced for the safety of the foreign nationals only, so they stay protected while on Indian tour. Although there is a Protected Area Permit (PAP) that such tourists can obtain while on their tour in India, yet they will be allowed to travel to these regions only with a trekking group.

Every year, different foreign nationals request Indian tourist visa for different duration of time, hence, this visa is issued based on the duration of stay in India. Those foreign nationals who are planning an Indian tour for as short as ninety days should opt for an Indian e-tourist visa and those who aim to stay from six months to more than a year must apply for a regular tourist visa. While the validity of an Indian tourist e visa is only one year, the applicants can get it for more than one year to at most ten years on a regular tourist visa.

As per the bilateral agreement between the Indian government and the government of Nepal and Bhutan, a tourist traveling from Nepal and Bhutan is not entitled to obtain an Indian visa and can travel in and out of the country with no particular possession of the Indian visa. Moreover, those foreign nationals whose desired duration of stay in India is less than seventy-two hours and don’t have a return ticket with them, should apply for an Indian tourist visa. In case, they have a return ticket, they can disclose it to the Indian consulate and obtain an Indian transit visa instead of a tourist visa, no matter what their purpose of travel is.

In a nutshell, an Indian tourist visa is suitable for only tourism purpose and that too in areas that are not protected or pose a threat to the security of the travelers. If you try to go against the Indian visa rule and travel on a tourist visa for a purpose other than tourism, you can call for a serious penalty or even imprisonment.

Law firm specialized in art and equine law

Not many law firms are specialized in art law or equine law. Schelstraete Lawyers in he Netherlands has been active in the field of equine law for over thirty years now. It’s funny how the founder, Luc Schelstraete, was asked more frequently about equine related legal issues at the time he was a young lawyer and a rider himself.

As one thing led to another, the firm has 6 lawyers working at business, art and equine related cases. Luc is considered to be a well known equine lawyer across Europe and the United States. In 2016 he founded the European Us-Asian Equine Lawyers: an alliance of law firms with a strong focus on equine law in Europe and the US.

Equine law is not only for riders

Equine law is not just for riders who have a disagreement with their national or global equestrian organisation (like the FEI). It also helps business owners in the equestrian world. In order to make a good solid deal, a foolproof contract is needed to avoid any uncertainties or even legal disputes. When it comes to horses who compete at the highest levels, a lot of money is involved. Schelstraete advises in many topics directly related to the equine sport such as:

  • drawing up contracts for the purchase and sale of horses and ponies, at a national and international level;
  • providing advice and assistance to clients in litigation relating to purchases of horses and ponies
  • legal evaluations of veterinary reports
  • the drafting and assessment of contracts concerning partnerships between horse owners, equestrian sport companies, sponsors and their riders/horsewomen;
  • assisting horse owners and/or riders in disciplinary proceedings at a national and on FEI level;
  • assisting veterinarians with legal matters;
  • advising and providing guidance to professional (equestrian) organisations in the civil law field.

Passion for art

Luc Schelstraete is legal counsel of VSN (Dutch Association of Sport Horse Dealers) and of many high ranked multinational equine entrepreneurs, trainers, equine authorities, National Federations and top athletes.
The art law is his second main interest. Similar to the equine business the art business is international and developing fast. Luc has represented many international art dealers in The Netherlands, Belgium and France.

How to deal with tension and stress as a student

A high workload creates tension and stress. A slight tension is good to perform well. A healthy tension ensures that you are alert and that you keep up the pace in your work. When there is no pressure you become lazy and when something has to be done, this is often too much for you. Too much pressure on the other hand is not good for you. How do you deal with high pressure as a student? We give 6 tips on how to deal with high pressure as a student.

1. Be realistic
It’s important that you don’t get too excited, be realistic and don’t say things you might not be able to live up to. It’s not so bad to cancel an appointment once in a while or not go out with your friends once in a while.

2. Set priorities
Your studies are more important at the moment and if you are in a busy period, it is important that you pay attention to them. When the high pressure is gone and you come in quieter waters, you can always go out with your friends.

3. Start on time
Postponing everything until the last moment will only increase the pressure. In addition, you will be walking around for a long time with your mind in mind knowing how much you still have to do. This can also make you stressed and tense.

4. Make a planning
This is useful and clear for yourself. This way you know exactly when to do what and how much time you will spend on it. Planning can take away a lot of stress. If you keep to your schedule, your schoolwork will be finished on time, so you don’t have to worry about that.

5. Take breaks
Don’t spend hours learning or doing homework all at once. After a few hours, your concentration will decrease, so that you will no longer be able to store the information in you. So make sure you take a break in time, so that you can eat, drink and relax for a while. It is wise to go outside for a while to get some fresh air and to be able to empty your head a little. After your break you can then continue with a fresh new start.

6. Live healthy
If you suffer from high pressure, these points above are ideal to help you deal with them. In addition, it is always very important to eat tasty, healthy and regular food. Together with sufficient exercise and resting moments, this increases your carrying capacity. If you live a healthy life you can handle more, periods of high pressure will have less impact on you.

Tip: When you have exams, eat a lot of fatty fish or fish oil in the period before, this contains vitamins that are good for your concentration. Eat a banana just before your exams, this is also very good for your concentration.

If you need some help promoting your research, take a look at, this will help you achieve your goals!

The official rules of squash | Quality Squash Stores

How does the coach ensure maximum results?
– Drawing up a training plan
– Being there in time to prepare everything
– Discuss the training plan so that players have a clear picture of the activities
– Give demonstrations
– Monitor each player’s performance and repeat exercises to determine progress
– Giving good advice

Quality Squash Stores has helped make this article about squash possible. Their squash webshop is

September 2013 we started our elite program at SBN and there we see the value of the coaches very clearly. The private coaches work together with the technical staff to bring the players to a higher level. This by means of knowledge, commitment and good communication. This already results in very good results.

I hope that many centres in the Netherlands will consider hiring a coach to give the club more quality. I also hope that many fanatic squash fans will consider joining the coaching profession. This can happen at any level, because also in squash coaches are needed at any level. The coaches who lay the foundation are often the most important in the development of the players.

Last time we dissected the drives a bit more in detail. This time we will go a bit further on the boast. The boast is an important blow in squash and also the most squash specific, because in other racket sports (except racketball) you don’t see a boast.

Especially as a beginner it gives you more possibilities to get the ball out of the corners. The boast is both a “defensive” and an “offensive” strike. In women’s squash, the boast has a very important function. Here’s a more specific approach to the boast

Attacking or defensive shot, where you use the side wall to hit the front wall.

– Attacking boast changes the direction of attack and brings opponent to the front of the court.
– Defensive Boast gives you recovery time and also allows you to play ball out of an extremely difficult situation, especially when your own position is such that you have to take the ball behind you.

– If your opponent plays half a (bad) length and you can come in front of your opponent, you play the boast (two walls) so that your opponent comes under pressure at the front of the court.
– When you no longer have any other options

Observation/perception: looking at opponent’s body position and racket sheet for ball contact will help the player to better anticipate the hit being played and thereby estimate speed, height and width of ball
Decision: attacking or defending / right target
Action: Move from “T” to battle zone and start racket preparation. Provide some space between elbow and body. Last step in balance turn a little more to the back corner (more than drive). Release racket with open racket blade in smooth movement with your body stable at the moment of impact. Drop off on your front foot to get back to “T” zone. Stay relaxed!

Note: The higher you get into squash level, the less often you will use the boast. This is due to the fact that if you boast a little too much, you will have to use the

4 Steps That Are Essential to Successful CFD Trading

CFD tradingis a derivative investment that allows you to speculate on either the falling or rising of global financial markets. That means you get to speculate on the falling and rising of commodities, indices, currencies, shares, and treasuries.

Depending on your position of speculation, you can then either make a profit or a loss. In essence, if you think the prices of a certain instrument, say currency will go down, you can sell or go short. Alternatively, if you think the prices of that instrument will go up, then you can buy or go long.

To enjoy a successful CFD trading experience; there are four key steps you need to observe.

1. Select The Market You Are Most Comfortable With

As noted above, with CFD trading you can speculate on a variety of instruments. The first step is therefore to select the market that you are comfortable enough with and that you can speculate on with high percentage of accuracy.

If you are more knowledgeable of currency, then go for currency. If you are more knowledgeable in shares, then go with shares.

In the same vein, it also means that you pick a broker who allows a myriad of trading cfds. If for instance, you prefer the indices market, but your broker does not offer that market, then you put yourself at a disadvantage.

2. Determine If You Will Go Long or Go Short

Arguably, the most important decision. The first thing to note is that because the CFD market is dependent on if the market will rise or fall; CFDs are often quoted in two prices—the bid price and the offer price.

The bid price is lower, and the offer price is higher. Therefore, if you think the market price of the underlying asset will fall, then you sell at the bid price. In contrast, if you think the market price of the underlying asset will rise, then you buy at the offer price.

With that in mind, and after careful analysis, you can now determine if you prefer to go long or short.

Consider this example of trading an index CFD to help you understand going long and short. A given index quote is 5802-5803. Thinking that the index will rise, you go long and buy at 5803. Unfortunately, things go awry, and the index falls to 5783-5784.

Therefore, you exit the trade by selling at the bid price of 5783. So,

Opening           =           5803

Closing             =           5783

The loss in points        =           20

Because 1 CFD equals 1 pound for every point, then your loss is 20 pounds.

3. Set a Stop and Limit Order

After deciding if you will go long or short, the next step is risk management. Risk management is a way of ensuring you can exit a trade before too much damage is done if things do not go your way as seen in the example above.

That means you set a stop loss order that will automatically close a trade if the market fluctuates to a certain level. In the example above, if the trader had set a stop loss order of 5793-5794, then it means they would only have lost 10 pounds as opposed to 20 pounds.

A limit order, on the other hand, is an instruction that directs the platform to close a trade if the market actually rose and you have already made a profit. It is a way of locking in profits to ensure that in case the market falls again, you’d already closed the trade at the right time.

4. Monitor and Close Your Trade at The Appropriate Time

With risk management set, you can now monitor the fluctuations of the underlying asset and close the trade if you feel you have made a significant profit or you want to avoid a significant loss.

Final Thoughts

As with any trading experience, CFD trading is full of risk. However, following the above steps will ensure you minimise loss and maximise profits.

Water pumps by

We have a water pump available for almost any situation. Because we have many water pumps in stock and closely collaborate with various water pump suppliers, we guarantee fast deliveries and adequate solutions. is a service-oriented web shop with the widest variety of water pumps and accessories. There are many different types of water pumps available. Below is a list of main categories.

How does a water pump operate?

There are many different types of water pumps, including submersible pumps, irrigation pumps and circulation pumps. Although all pumps operate differently, generally speaking, pumps can be divided into three main categories. There are the self-priming pumps, centrifugal pumps and underwater pumps.

Self-priming pumps are placed outside of the water. The pump’s engine operates the pump housing. The pump housing of a self-priming pump is equipped with a suction and delivery diameter. Using the suction diameter, the pump is able to suck water by means of a suction hose. The end of the suction hose can be positioned in the source (under water). The pump’s housing includes one or multiple impellers. Impellers resemble closed rotor blades that exert a certain suction and compressive force by spinning around. Rotation of the impellers releases these forces and allows the pump to suck up water at a maximum depth of 8 meters. The pressure force in these types of pumps is always much greater and is expressed in head rate, or maximum pressure. As a rule of thumb: the more impellers, the greater the pressure the pump can exert. Other pumps that fall into this category include irrigation pumps, booster pumps and rainwater harvesting pumps.

Centrifugal pumps are largely the same as self-priming pumps, although they either have very light self-priming features or none at all. Given that centrifugal pumps have less suction power, they must always be manually started. Therefore, these pumps are often used for smaller suction heights, or systems where the water is already fed to the pump or closed systems (circulation pumps).

paint or dye

The difference between paint and dye

For those who don’t know, there are two ways of colouring your leather. You can either dye or paint it. with dyeing you’ll work the colour through your clothing. Leaving no trace. With paint, you’ll apply the colour on the fabric. It doesn’t go all the way, but it stays on thicker and longer. Not a lot of people are too familiar with either. There are even some who haven’t even heard of dye. But don’t worry, I’ll explain to you in a short text and I’ll use shoes as example because these are mostly made of leather and leather is an amazing fabric to colour on.

Suede paint

When using shoe dye you’re practically putting your shoes in a coloured bath where the dye will be absorbed by your shoes to give a certain colour. It’s essentially important to make sure your shoes are clean all the way because if you don’t do this, there might be a chance that you ruin the shoes and that would be a real shame!

Leather shoe paint

The most familiar leather paint is the one from angus. It’s acrylic, water based and most importantly it’s not toxic! Though we wouldn’t recommend eating it or trying out the taste, but if you accidently ingest some it won’t be lethal. However, it is of extreme importance that you clean your shoes properly! Even more important than when you’re dyeing your shoes because if you paint over something like sand, the sand will eventually fall off and you’ll end up with a few unpainted parts on your shoe!

 If you want more information about dye or paint I’d recommend that you visit our website. There you can find an even further, deeper explanation of the two. Which might be useful so you’ll know when you can use paint or dye and a good explanation on how to use the both of them.
