Today’s DJ Controllers

traktor-kontrol-s4-800x455

A professional DJ knows that you have to have the best controllers to be able to mix and produce the best sounds. But unlike in the 80s where you have to use a lot of equipment (a pair of DJ turntables or CD players, a mixer, some headphones, etc.) to make the best sounds, controllers nowadays are smaller and not as complicated. You may even be surprised to find a controller with software and skills that suits your budget. What’s more? These controllers have apps, so you can either mix music using your laptop or iOS device. Yup, that’s how amazing the DJ controllers of today are. I wonder what’s next?

Always feeling hungry?

I read somewhere that enjoying a coconut milk smoothie can keep you full and satisfied for hours. That’s because the milk’s MCFAs trigger the release of hunger-suppressing hormones. In one study, subjects that were given this drink consumed 15 percent fewer calories at their next meal than those who didn’t get a dose of the fatty acids.

Scent is Connected to Memory

Sniffing familiar aromas helps you remember happy scenes and events, making you feel calm and happy altogether.

Candles Set the Mood

Certain fragrances tend to promote positive emotions in everyone – including scents like lavender, rose or orange, which stimulate a sense of calm. If you’re feeling blah, simply light a candle, enjoy the scent and you’ll be surprised at how fast it changes your mood.

My friend’s daughter just got her college ring the other day. When I went to visit them at their house, she immediately showed it to me. It looks so unique because the style is different. She told me that they ordered their college ring from Joy Jewelers. I’ve lost mine many years ago and I’m thinking of having a new one made. When I checked the website, I found out that their prices are very affordable and they have a lot of designs. I can’t wait to see my new ring!
