  • Wanda A. Cadogan - Impressive Product!!!I've been looking for a good cowash for some time now and stumbled upon this one. The ingredient list alone is impressive, but the real wow factor came in the use of the product. It has excellent slip and immediately I can feel the difference in my hair. I've been natural for almost 15yrs now and this is by far one of the best products that I have used.
  • graeme c - Exposed skincare productsThe only products I have used that actually work. Also, you can email the company any time for advice & help, they always reply straight away.
    Amazing results! I recommend anyone to try them out. I have suffered for years! If only I had the products 20 years ago, my life would have been transformed. I have had antibiotics on & off all that time! Exposed has given me better results than my doctor! I have recommended to the doctor as well, but I don't know if she has passed my advice on to others.
    Well worth a try if you suffer, I hope you have the same results as me! Only thing I put on my skin now, & so simple to use. Been a user for nearly 6 months
  • Geneva Christie - Jim Butcher's "Bombshells" would be worth the whole price all on its own, plus there are so many other great contributors tooI began with Jim Butcher's "Bombshells" because I'm a huge fan of The Dresden Files series. It was exceptionally good, just what I hoped and expected it would be.
    The Dresden Files books are written from the protagonist Harry Dresden's POV so it's only in these occasional short stories or novellas that an opportunity exists to see the 'Dresdenverse' from the viewpoint of the other major characters. Just as one's spouse and parents and kids, coworkers, et cetera are people whom you deeply and honestly know but nevertheless have parts of their lives which you don't see, that's what Jim Butcher takes the opportunity to write about in short stories.
    "Bombshells" is from his ex-apprentice's POV. It's a plus to know the series already but I truly don't think that a first-timer to Harry Dresden's Chicago would feel at all lost in the story. I hope that many, many readers who haven't happened to read Jim Butcher previously will go forward to read all the books of this wry, quick-paced and quick-witted, action-packed series which always has such incredibly well-developed characters. None of them in the novels, not even minor characters, ever are cardboard-y toss-aways.
    And yes, this anthology is also my opportunity to sample some stories from several other authors whom I've meant to try. While other readers will be finding Jim Butcher here for the first time and delighting in "Bombshells," I'll be tasting some other authors in it which are new to me plus some others whom I've not read for awhile.
  • Norberto Feliberty "Norberto" - Windows 8 Pro UpgradeWindows 8 is the best operating system that Microsoft has come up with. While I understand why many people do not like Windows 8, to me it is very innovative. With Windows 8, Microsoft took a bold step in unifying the operating system both for PCs and tablets and while many people do not like the fact the Windows 8 is different because it geared more towards tablets, tablets are the trend today. Windows 8 introduces a new interface called Metro in addition to the current desktop interface found in previous versions of Windows. The Metro interface has two windows which are the main start screen and the all apps screen. Navigating through Windows 8 is quite different than what is used to. For starters, there is no longer a start button and to access settings a user must move the mouse to the upper or lower right corner of the screen which is the equivalent of swiping in this direction on a tablet or touchscreen. To close an open window that is running on the metro interface, one must move the mouse to the upper left or lower left corner of the screen and right click the window that they want to close and click close. To get to the Apps screen in the Metro interface, one must right click in the start screen and click on the all apps icon which appears in the lower right hand side of the screen. To get back to the Start Screen from the Apps screen, one needs to right click in the Apps screen and click on the all apps icon found in the lower right hand side of the screen.

    I like many things about Windows 8. To start with, I like the idea of having a Windows Store where everything is located.and because of this set up, I feel like I now have everything that I am interested in right at my fingertips. I have my news, sports, weather and pretty much anything else that interests me right at my fingertips without having to open up a browser and go searching for things. Now all I have to do is just open up the app that has what I am looking for and read about it. Also equally as important if not the most important thing to me since I am visually impaired, are the improvements made to the Narrator screen reader in Windows 8 over Windows 7. Narrator is a basic screen reader for Windows that works via text to speech. In Windows 8, Narrator reads text on web pages aloud which is something that just did not work well in Windows 7. Narrator works quite well with many of the apps that use the Metro interface so I can have things such as my news read to me instead of having to read them. While Narrator is not an ideal solution for a person with little to no sight, it is nice to see that it has improved.

    The upgrade process from Windows 7 to Windows 8 was a very easy one though not entirely smooth. The user is guided step by step through the entire process and once the upgrade was complete for me, I had some issues with playing flash content. Installing windows updates fixed the issue but not before an update for my graphics card driver crashed my PC and made the magnifier not work anymore which lead me to having to reinstall everything. Thankfully I do backups on a regular basis and did not lose anything. Second time around everything is working just fine.

    I give Windows 8 5 stars because it makes using the computer more enjoyable and accessible than the previous editions of Windows. I would recommend Windows 8 to anyone who likes to learn new ways on how to use computers and anyone who would like to really have everything at their fingertips and who would be willing to take the time to learn how to use Windows 8. It is a great operating system regardless of whether it's running on a PC or a tablet.
