What New Changes Make Diablo 3 Faster-Paced Than Earlier Editions?

What can an assassin tell you about the Sanctuary War? Well, almost everything! Just pick up Natalya's Diablo 3 Guide by Natalya and you would be amazed at how fast you can master the Diablo 3 system.

Diablo 3 has almost completely overhauled the character development as shown in the previous editions. Most importantly, the manual method for allocating attribute points and limited skill is no longer valid. In the earlier editions of the game, the character builds were very important with focus on the right selection of some attributes as against level and skill choices. In Diablo 3, all characters are almost save except for the gear the hero chooses for them. The sill and attribute systems have been changed a bit too.

The changes to skill management are vital to understanding the new strategies required for controlling Diablo 3. Unlike earlier editions in which Mana was the main resource for generating special abilities, Diablo 3 has specific resources for each class. All these resources operate in different way. For example, you have fury for the Barbarians, and fury increases according to damage. Then, the Wizards use arcane power that recharges way faster than the Mana but can be obtained only of a fixed quantity. There is hatred and discipline for the Demon Hunters, while the monks have spirit which grows slowly. On the other hand, Witch Doctors, have Mana like before which increases at every level but recharges slowly as compared to the other resources.

Therefore, skills are way more limited in their cost and effect in Diablo 3. The potion-quaffing has given way to another interesting method in classes like the Demon Hunter.

Additional pace comes from XP bonuses for kill streaks for the Barbarian. Then, there are the health globes. They are the main source of health and bringing back a fixed percentage of health both for the hero and any party members that are nearby. Monsters and bosses drop the health globes. It's one of the key improvements in Diablo 3.

Also, in Diablo 3, the Town Portals do not exist any longer. The Stone of Recall, which is won in the beginning quest, works like the Stone of Recall in World of Warcraft. It takes you back to town. But the impact of this is that you can not run back to town when up against a tough enemy. You can run indefinitely in Diablo 3 without worrying about stamina. The movement speed is much more fixed and you can not run away from enemies.

The Pros and Cons of Mobile Computing

I've always enjoyed mobile computing or the ability to do computing tasks with my mobile devices anywhere. Mobile computing has given me the flexibility to multi-task and maximize my time. Unfortunately, it has not always been a great experience.

Here are some of my good and bad observations in mobile computing.

The Good

  • Being productive during down time . Obviously, being able to work virtually anywhere is the best benefit of the mobile computing. There are times when you want to do some work when you have some down time, like when you're waiting for your flight, waiting for someone in a restaurant, and other waiting activities.
  • Being able to work when you least expect it. There are times when you suddenly need to do some report, respond to an important email, or send a file asap. During these times, it's reassuring to know that you can just power on your mobile device and start working! Globalization has made working with co-workers from other countries and different timezones a necessity. As a result, your working hours is oftentimes disregarded by your foreign counterparts.
  • Being able to play my multimedia collection anywhere . All work and no play can may you a dull person.

The Bad

  • Rest time is no longer rest time . Although we can do some tasks on our computers during our rest time or down time, it also takes away actual time for rest. Our minds and bodies need time to calm down and recharge, too.
  • Work-Life Imbalance can happen . This is another sad conclusion of mobile computing. Because we can do our work anywhere, we tend to work at home. When we do work from home, or when we bring home our work, we eat up time we can spend for our family, or for personal time. This imbalance often results in workaholism .
  • We become connected 24/7 . As cool as it may sound, being connected 24/7 is not healthy. Being connected all the time can keep you up all night resulting in lack of sleep. Lack of sleep has been proven to cause a lot of sickness. Another ill effect of being connected 24/7 is the one mentioned in the previous bullet point: work-life imbalance.

There are more good and bad observations about you may think of about mobile computing. The negative aspect of it can be fixed by setting your priorities straight and developing self-discipline. And, like most things in life, moderation is key.


3 Step Formula to Writing Your USP

There is an easy 3 step formula, and this is something that we are going to do. This is a formula, that was created by a member of GKIC named John Carlton. And this is an easy way to be able to create a USP. You can create it fast, you can create it slow, you can create it a lot of different ways. There are people that have one word for their USP. So you don’t have to use this, but some people have a hard time getting their mind flowing. So that is what I want to do is help you to get your mind flowing today.

Your USP is not product driven, it is specific to you and your customer. The USP defines your uniqueness in what your competitors do not or will not offer. Tons of people can and do sell your product, but not everyone can bring to the table the special details and care that you do. Focus your USP around your offer, your uniqueness and how it will benefit your client.

1. You start of the first part of your sentence is “we help who?” Who is your market? We help who? And then the second question is”to do.” We help who?..to do. And the to do is your unique. This is where you need to make sure you offer your unique proposition. What is the benefit that they are going to get? Your target market is going to get this benefit.

2. To Do: Describe what you do… this is where the unique comes in. Tell someone how you are the one they want to work with based on what benefit you bring to them. This is not about you… this is about how you and ONLY you can benefit them.

3. Even if: Here, we bring in the worst case senario that makes them know that you will be there for them when the worst case comes up. Maybe when they have a loss, maybe when they lose a loved one, maybe when they are injured. Use this section to let them know when you will be amazing and they will be eternally glad they put their business with you.

Remember, you can’t be all things to all people..that isn’t reality. Clients that take up a ton of your time and energy cost you more in lost revenue than the value of keeping them. Our USP should center around attracting the right people. People that you want to do business with and people that will refer business, and grow your influence in your community.


Scuba Diving in Krabi

Divers lucky enough to explore the spectacular Krabi waters will be rewarded with glimpses of whales and leopard sharks, turtles, dolphins and a myriad of colorful tropical fish.

When to Plan Your Diving Holiday in Krabi

The best time to live in Krabi is between November and April when conditions are at their absolute best. Theoretically, you can dive all year-round, although from May to October the monsoon can make conditions and visibility poor. If you are planning a dive trip at this time of year, consider instead the Gulf of Thailand where the weather is better.

Learn to Dive in Krabi

There are over 40 scuba diving schools in Krabi that cater for both licensed divers and beginners alike. The low-cost and shallow waters make Krabi an excellent place to learn – some Krabi hotels and resorts even offer a test dive in their pool! If you do try this and get the diving bug, you can follow a test dive with a complete a four-day PADI Open Water Diver course. This permits you to dive in open water with an experienced Dive Master.

Where to dive

If you are staying in or near near Ao Nang you can dive in the rich and beautiful waters of the seven main islands around Koh Poda. These islands are within the breathtaking Hat Nopparat Thara – Mu Koh Phi Phi Marine National Park.

The waters around Koh Ha are teeming with over 60 different species of coral that house a multitude of shrimps and crabs. You can often watch schools of barracuda, groups of squid and leopard sharks quietly going about their business.

Koh Si offers some excellent snorkeling with its shallow coral filled waters. The water here has superb visibility allowing you to enjoy perfect views of snapper, grouper, seahorses, scorpion fish and sometimes the notoriously shy black-tip reef shark.

Koh Yeadon is famous for a long 'swim-through' area, but it is only recommended for experienced divers due to the limited visibility and strong currents. Because there are fewer divers in this area, you will spot large schools of fish, including grouper. You can also watch an exotic display of other colorful sea creatures such as lobsters and sting rays.

Koh Dor is a perfect place to dive or snorkel, especially in the afternoon when black-tip reef shark often make a fleeting appearance. The waters here are brimming with an amazing variety of corals and sponges.

Koh Talu is ideal for both beginners and experienced divers alike. Here you can dive amongst large barracuda and mantis shrimp and explore the spectacular coral.

The waters around GK Island contain a huge coral reef with many sea whips around it. You may also come across fusiliers and even a random sea snake during a dive here.

Koh Yawasam is the perfect place to view rare anemone fish. Koh Yawasam boasts huge expanses of coral, flat sand banks and deep water, also making it an ideal place to learn.

Also close to Ao Nang is Koh Dam, actually two incredible Islands joined by an intriguing coral reef that presents an amazing dive experience.

Other great places to try diving in Krabi are:

Hin Daeng and Hin Muang – here more experienced divers can explore dramatic rock formations and spot whale sharks and manta rays.

Koh Rok Nok are two absolutely stunning islands that lie in a protected marine park – the waters here are rich and plentiful in sea life and offer outstanding visibility.

The picture perfect Phi Phi Islands, made famous by the film 'The Beach', offer such a multitude of premium dive and snorkeling sites that you can be kept busy the entire holiday!

A convenient and exciting way to explore these islands and dive sites is to book a package trip that includes transport by speed boat and usually lunch and refreshments.

Where to stay

There is a huge choice of budget hostels, ideal for backpackers and a great choice of hotels in Krabi. If you want luxury accommodation, then the fabulous Krabi resorts will not disappoint.

Renting a Thai holiday villa is an excellent option for those planning a dive holiday with a large group. Krabi vacation villas tend to offer more space and more economic than a hotel or resort. If you want to truly relax after the physical challenges of diving, then opt for a serviced villa. These give all the regular services of a hotel, such as room cleaning, catering, massage and beauty treatments and even excursion and dive trip booking.

Lastly, before you set off to enjoy the world-famous diving in Krabi, do not forget to check that your travel insurance policy covers your Thai holiday for diving and snorkeling activities!


Take the Lead

Why do you not take the lead? What stops you from taking charge of your life and business? What can you do about it?

We hear from the day we where we born that we should not stick out, we must be like everyone else. We must be normal.

What does it mean, that word, normal? What is normal anyway and who decide what is normal?

John Milton Fogg once said in a discussion on the greatest networker forum, that he wished he never became normal and I totally agree, because if you are and like like everyone else, you get what everyone else gets.

So the fact that we are spoon fed to be normal is one of the causes for us not to take the lead.

A main reason that stops us from charge on and takes the lead is the kind of people we surround us with. For us to change it will be much easier if we choose people to associate with that are more towards the change we wish to make.

In this case you want to take the lead and there before you need to surround yourself with leaders. Seek out people that are already doing what you want to do. See what they are doing, learn and practice what you learn.

Start right now, and do not wait for better times, because it is you that create your own better future.

You should live by the quote: "take the lead, follow, or get out of my way".

'What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.' ~ Johan Wolfgang von Goethe

So remember, what ever you do, you will change, it is your choice to change to the same or to a leader that take the lead.

See you at the top.
