Do You Think This is the End of the Television Age?

The UN observes World Television Day, but the medium's days could be numbered

While American parents might complain that their children watch too much TV, the United Nations is celebrating World Television Day, which recognizes television's role in bringing global attention to conflicts and threats to peace as well as its potential to spotlight critical economic, social and health issues.

However, while the UN lauds TV, some experts believe the medium's best days are over.

TV is good for you

In March 1996, the United Nations General Assembly declared November 21 to be World Television Day. Television flickered to life in the 1920s. Over the second half of the 20th century, those flickering images strengthened and grew, until TV became the most widely used telecommunication medium for news and entertainment, reaching into every corner of the globe.

"Television doesn't require literacy and presents information in all visual forms, which doesn't require any specific skills for comprehension," says Janis Karklins, assistant director-general of UNESCO.

World Television Day, he says, celebrates the influence and impact of TV.

"This day allows people to underscore the power of TV communication, its role in sharpening the focus of many of the world's major challenges; would it be world economy, would it be cultural development, would it be good governance or freedom of expression," Karklins says. "We can also note the increased impact of television on all societies, but especially in the developing world where enabling environment for television emissions and television industry are under development."

Over the past 50 years, he notes, television helped spread new social ideas, especially in developing countries.

Positive effects

"For instance in Africa, television shaped the societies' shift toward post-colonial independence, political pluralism and economic liberation," Karklins says. "If we look closer in the history, in late 1980s beginning of 1990s in Eastern Europe, television shaped the shift towards democracies in that part of the world."

He says television has been especially effective at mobilizing the world for different causes.

"For instance, campaigns to fight HIV/AIDS, to collect funds for action against poverty, in favor of education, cultural diversity," Karklins says. "The combination of sound and image means that the television has had a great chance of representing the diversity of our cultural expression and foster intercultural dialogue by visual, audio means to clearly show the differences existing around the world. In this sense, television brought people of the world closer together presenting us with opportunities to see the differences, to see the diversity in unity."

And, with new technologies, Janis Karklins expects television to continue to evolve and impact our lives.

"The world has become a big network and TV is part of this network society," he says. "TV certainly is moving already and increasingly will move to mobile devices. All this will complement existing technological platforms like satellite TV and cable TV. So I think this convergence will increase the impact of TV on the development of democracy and will continue to provide space for citizen participation, and clearly TV will continue to play its crucial role in disseminating information in the increasingly dynamic world we're living in.

Big changes

However, Anthony Smith, author of "Television: an International History," believes the medium's days are numbered.

"Television came and now is almost gone and in 50 years time, the form which we've been used to, will disappear all together," says Smith. "The age of mass communication has, more or less, come to an end."

That's because, Smith says, people don't rely on TV today the same way they did in the 1950s and 1960s.

"They have so many other distractions," he explains. "You have to realize that lots of people use the screens now for pornography, for shopping, for reasons other than what we normally take to be entertainment. It's a source of information, but a very thin information. I think most people who are seriously interested in what's going in the world consult websites, one or two surviving newspapers. Of course, many fewer people will still watch it, but they will be getting their narrative stories from a much wider variety of sources than the thing we have for the last 50, 60 years called television."

Smith notes that a growing number of people around the world are not just media consumers. They create and send their own video, audio and text to each other. In such a busy communication environment, he says, television's role is being constantly redefined as we discover new ways to create and distribute information - something to think about, on World Television Day.

What is cPanel importance and what Fantastico Scripts available in cPanel do?

Control Panel is the most important tool in web hosting service. cPanel is more suitable for many user. What do user look for in cPanel?

Simpler User Interface (User Friendly)

This is the first that people look for in cPanel, user friendly interface. People say that cPanel has very easy to use features that make web hosting service worth its price. You get to use friendly web based interface that is suitable for beginners to professionals. You don’t have to worry about complicated Control Panel. Even that you still begin to learn about web hosting, you can manage your web hosting account without any hassle (hassle-free).

Fantastico Scripts

Fantastico is the other feature that users must want so much when they use cPanel, Fantastico. This feature offers you numerous ready to use scripts that you can install within minutes, with few clicks of your mouse only. The scripts are various - blog, forum, content management, etc. There is no worry for complicated installations. Even, the blindest person in web hosting can install fantastico scripts easily. In H-SPHERE, you will find the scripts in EasyApps, different name but the same feature.

With these two helpful abilities that cPanel offers to web hosting users, who will not look for them. Everybody looks for simplicity, everybody looks for no hassle, and everybody looks for easiness. The only minus that CPanel has might be only that it can only offer UNIX web hosting plans and still not available for Windows. However, being simple and easy to use are still a good offer.

How to get on and become a part of the search engines, Google

You do not need to contact Google to become part of their search engine. Google and other engines use spiders to index webpages, and only the search engine will decide what keywords are used and what rank you get.

Meta Tags which were once used to identify keywords are now ignored by Google.

Google still offers tools so that you can be sure your site was considered: http://www.google.com/intl/en/submit_content.html

You can also purchase a high rank for specific keywords, called sponsored links, and other services provided by Google. http://www.google.com/intl/en/about.html

-----------------------------------

Do I have to change my domain if I get a new host?

No. Provided that the domain is registered in your name (as it should be), you can simply update your namservers (from where you manage your domain names) to that of your new host.


---------------------------------

How can I pay for web hosting?

This depends on which hosting company you decide to go with.

Most web hosts will accept credit cards, and some will accept PayPal and/or a Money Order / Check.


--------------------------------


How Do I Register a Domain Name?

Registering a domain name is very easy.

First you will have to make sure that the domain you want is available - using something called a WHOIS lookup at sites like Register.com or Whois Source you can make sure the domain you want is available for registration.

Afterwards, you simply need to visit a registration site such as www.XYZ.com to purchase your domain name.


-----------------------------------

How do I track how many hits my website gets?

There are a few things that need to be cleared in terms of terminology:
Hits - this simply refers to the number of 'elements' loaded on your site. If one page has five images in it, viewing that page once adds 6 hits (one page + five images).
Impressions - the number of times all the pages on your site are seen (also simply called pageviews). Impressions are sometimes referred to as 'hits' which can cause confusion
Uniques - the number of people that visited your site

So to clarify, if I visit your website, look at two pages, and each page has 5 images on it, then your stats increase by one unique, two page views, and 12 hits.

Tracking on your site can be either done server-side or remotely. With server-side statistics, log files are used to generate visitor information. This is usually much more accurate than remotely hosted solutions. In such cases, you usually have to add some javascript to your site. This javascript is then used to track visitor data.

If your host provides it (and many do), server-side statistics are a good solution. Otherwise, companies like Site Meter can be used to remotely track your visitors.


------------------------------------------

How do I upload my site online?

Uploading your site can be done in many ways, but the most popular is FTP.

When your hosting account was created, you should have been provided with an FTP account. Using software such as CuteFTP or WS_FTP, you can log into your host. Then, using the program like a normal windows program, you can drag and drop files onto your web host. These files become live online instantaneously.

There are other ways to upload your site such as using SSH or uploading files through your browser


-----------------------------

I am using too much bandwidth! Is there anyway for me to make it less?

In most cases, yes.

You should first try to optimize the graphics on your website. Many GIFs look just as good with fewer colors, and many JPEGs look just as good with a higher compression level. NetMechanic offers an image optimizer program online.

You should also analyze the HTML of your site. Make sure you use relative paths, so that images are not downloaded more than one time. Remove any extra spacing and when linking to other pages, use relative paths and not absolute links.

While many hosts already have it, you could also see if your host has mod_gzip installed. This can save you a lot of bandwidth.

Best of all, optimizing your page like this makes the user experience better as your site will load faster for them!


--------------------------------------

I have a fast internet connection (DSL/cable) - can I just host my own site?

You could, but that's definitely not recommended.

First of all, most ISPs have clauses that do not let you use your internet connection for web hosting - doing so will result in termination of your account.

Second of all, think of the headaches it can provide: making sure your system is secure so that no one can hack into it, having your computer on 24/7, and other such problems.

Third of all, think of the performance. Most good web hosts use powerful servers with lots of RAM and high performance hard disks. Furthermore, they have multiple internet connections at speeds far higher than what residential DSL or cable service can provide.

Lastly there are all the issues of support. If something goes wrong, it will be your job to fix it - you will not have a professional to correct the problem.


-----------------------------------------------

Some what about Web Hosting

Want to know more about how web hosting works? Have an idea for a web-based business but don't know the procedures to get your content online? Check out this FAQ section about web hosting and you'll be on your way in no time!

What is Web Hosting?
Web hosting companies rent out server space and bandwidth to you so that you can publish your website online.

You can purchase server space and bandwidth directly from a web hosting company, or opt for free disk space and bandwidth from them that will be supported by pop-ups and online banners and ads (that you do not have control over).

What is a Domain Name?
A domain name is a unique letter/number string that, along with a top level domain (e.g., .com or .org, etc), identifies your website.

What is Disk Space and Bandwidth/Data Transfer?
Each website's content, including each and every letter of even the simplest HTML code, takes up a certain amount of space (disk space) on a server. Images, graphic displays, databases, and other applications take up large amounts of disk space.

There's also a limit to the amount of data that can be transferred from the server to your website in any given month; this is the bandwidth. Should your website exceed this limit, your web hosting company might shut down your site's operation for the rest of the month, or just charge you a fee for each extra gigabyte of data transfer.

Why put Flash on My Website?
Flash allows a program to run on a user's computer, rather than through a web host, so long as their browser has the right plug-in installed. Putting Flash on your website helps ensure that the amount of traffic your website experiences does not affect its data transfer limits.

What are PHP, ASP, Perl, etc?
These are all different types of programming languages, each of which has its own distinct uses and benefits. Consult with an expert to determine which best meets your website's needs.

Will there be forced advertising on my site - things like banner ads or popup ads?
Not if you pay a web host for your own webspace.

How Can I Pay a Web Host?
Most web hosting providers accept credit card payments, while some also accept PayPal transfers or checks/money orders.

What are Subdomains?
These are extensions of your own domain name that are treated as separate sites from your main website. For example, www.test.domain.com is a subdomain of www.domain.com.

How Do I Upload My Site Online?
Though you can upload content to your website via SSH or through a web browser, FTP is by far the most standard method of uploading website content to a server. Software like CuteFTP and WS_FTP allows you to log in to your web host and drag and drop files onto your web host that become live online instantaneously.

What is Uptime?
The amount of time your website it online (measured monthly). Since many web hosting providers offer 99.9% uptime guarantees, if your website is offline for more than 43 minutes in a calendar month, they will likely reimburse you.

What is the Difference between UNIX Hosting and Windows Hosting?
The Linux OS is used far more commonly by web hosts than the Windows OS for many reasons. First, a majority of websites simply don't need to support Microsoft products, such as MS Access, VBScript, or ASP. Second, the Linux OS is considered to be more stable. Third, and most importantly, the Linux OS is not only a fine product, it's also free.

How Can I Decide Which Web Hosting Company to Use?
Based on factors like pricing plans, reliability, and amount of disk space and monthly bandwidth offered. You also need to find out which operating system the web hosting company uses, and what sort of technical customer support they offer, and choose the web host that best fits your business' needs based on these factors.

What is SSL?
An acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, SSL refers to the mechanism used to ensure the security of financial transactions online. An SSL certificate costs about $100 per year and can be purchased through a company like VeriSign.

How Do I Know How Many People Visit a Website?
Most web hosting companies provide you with the tools and technologies to measure your website's traffic and better manage your website's content.

Some types of information your web host may provide you with are: how long viewers spend looking at the different pages of your website, how your site ranks on various search engines, and where dead links are on your site

Knowing this information empowers you to try and fine-tune your online content to increase the amount of time viewers spend on your website.

I've Made My Choice for a Web Hosting Provider, Now What?
First open and set up an account with your new web hosting company. You can pay on a monthly basis or try to negotiate a better price by paying for a year of web hosting services in advance. Next, follow the web host's instructions and protocol for uploading your website's content (usually through an FTP server). Your web hosting company will then tell you what their nameservers are called, so that you can enter this information with the company with whom you registered your domain name. Within 2-3 days, your website should be fully functional.


---------------------------------


What are PHP, ASP, perl, etc?

These are all programming languages which are referred to by their acronyms.

PHP - PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor
ASP - Active Server Pages
Perl - not an acronym

Each programming language has its own benefits and uses. It is best that you research on your own to find one that best fits your needs


--------------------------

What are subdomains?

Consider subdomains as an extension of your domain. For example, your site is www.example.com. A subdomain would be test.example.com, and another would be webhosting.example.com.

Subdomains are usually treated as separate sites from the main domain site.

----------------------

What do I need to do to put Flash on my website?

Flash is a client side feature - it runs on the user's computer, not on your web host. As long as the user's browser has the correct plugin installed, it will run on their computer

---------------------

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is a word along with a TLD that uniquely identifies your website.

------------------

What is Domain Parking?

Domain parking lets you buy a domain and then have a 'coming soon' page on it. This is not needed - if a domain is not parked it will simply be iinaccessible to anyone.

Most domain registrars provide this by default.


-----------------

What is MySQL, MS SQL, etc?

MySQL and MS SQL are database systems. Depending on what your host provides, you can use a database to organize your data.

---------------


What is the difference between UNIX hosting and Windows hosting?

Depending on which operating system to go with depends on your needs.

If you need to support Microsoft products such as ASP, MS Access, or VBScript, then Windows hosting would be better. Furthermore, if you are comfortable with IIS and do not have the time to understand how UNIX works, Windows hosting would again be a better choice.

There are some things to remember.

First of all, just because you use Windows at home does not mean you should use Windows hosting. The two are completely different, and having a Windows system at home will not affect your ability to communicate with a UNIX server.

Secondly, Linux is much more common with web hosts due to its superior stability and because it is free. Since it is free, Linux hosting is usually cheaper than Windows. Just because it's free does not mean it's not as good - Linux is an excellent product too.

In order to help you, we have created a list of web hosts using Unix and a list of web hosts that use Windows.

--------------------

What is uptime?

Uptime is literally what it means - it is the amount of time your site is online throughout the entire month.

The best uptime would be 100%, but because things can break, many hosts offer 99.9% uptime guarantees. This means that if your site is not accessible for more than 43 minutes in a single month, they will reimburse you, depending on their terms of service.

--------------------

What is Virtual Hosting?

Also known as shared hosting, this form of web hosting should suffice for most everyone.

Virtual hosting simple refers to the fact that your site is on one server, and that this server hosts mulitple sites. You are virtually shared - your site will not be the only one on this specific server.

Very few sites would actually need the power of a dedicated server, so this option provides to be a reliable and cheap solution.

---------------------

Why don't I just go with the cheapest hosting?

A host has to make a profit to continue operating. Some hosts do not properly understand the market, and may be pricing themselves too cheap.
Usually the less you pay, the less you have :)

-------------------

Why would I need a dedicated IP?

For most people, a dedicated IP is not required. But for people that want to provide anonymous FTP or a website using SSL, a dedicated IP can make that easier

Commonly Used Port on Web Server

cPanel

cPanel uses port 2082 and secure port 2083
WHM uses port 2086 and secure port 2087
webmail uses port 2095 and secure port 2096

To access secure webmail, you can use https://(domain.s.ip):2096
e.g. https://123.123.123.123:2096

E-mail

POP3 connects via port 110
IMAP connects via port 143
SMTP connects via port 25 and 26
SMTP over TLS/SSL 465
IMAP over TLS/SSL 993
POP3 over TLS/SSL 995

Website

HTTP connects via port 80
SSL connects via port 443

FTP connects via port 21
sFTP port 22
FTPs port 990
MySQL connects via port 3306
SSH dedicated connects via port 22
SSH shared and reseller connects via port 22

How To Login to CPanel..

One of the most common questions new users ask is “How do I log in to my cPanel now that I have this fancy new hosting account?” In this article we will talk about logging in to cPanel and also how to log in to the various services provided by the cPanel software such as webmail.

Some basic terminology: The word cPanel can mean a couple different things. cPanel is the name of the company and the name of the software itself that can be installed to manage a web server. cPanel is also used to refer to a domain’s cPanel, meaning the cPanel interface for a specific domain.
Basic Domain cPanel Login

Domain-level functions such as creating e-mail addresses, ftp accounts, and many other domain related services can be found in the domain-level cPanel interface.

The login page for your domain’s cPanel interface can be reached using one of two browser addresses:

http://domain.com/cpanel
or

http://cpanel.domain.com

(be sure to substitute your domain name for domain.com)
Web Host Manager (WHM) Login

If you have a VPS or Dedicated Linux server running cPanel then you will need to access your server’s WHM from time to time. The WHM is used for server-wide configuration changes and controls all of the server’s functions that work with each domain on the server.

The login page for your server’s WHM interface can be reached using one of two browser addresses:

https://host.domain.com:2087/
or

https://host.domain.com/whm

(be sure to substitute your domain name for domain.com or just the main hostname of the server)
Webmail Login

The login page for your domain’s webmail interface can be reached using one of two browser addresses:

http://domain.com/webmail
or

http://webmail.domain.com

(be sure to substitute your domain name for domain.com)
Logging In By Port Number

Each one of the shortcuts above redirects to a port number on the server. Each port number is responsible for a different service on the server.

To use a port number, simply add a colon followed by the port number to the end of the domain name or hostname.

Webmail – 2096

WHM – 2087

cPanel – 2083
Login Options

Using any of the above shortcuts will take you to a browser based pop-up that will ask for a username and password. If you press the cancel button you will be taken to a login prompt that is in a page, not a browser pop-up. Once you are at this page you can bookmark it for future use.

Day trip in private jet to Iran where you'll create your own Persian carpet with the country's most-exclusive and best-renowned hand-maker. Day trip to Bahrain in private jet for "a pearl deep sea experience," with the pearl hand-designed settings.

The Emirates is hoping the trip gets it a slot in the Guinness Book of World Records. But it turns out that Leading Hotels of the World has its own ode to opulence. Its $1 million Around the World in 80 Ways trip, which plays off the storied journey of Phileas Fogg, lets travelers recreate the 19th-century around-the-world fantasy experience with 21st-century comfort and flair.

3. A Vacation With Real Mermaids
At a west Florida intersection, where the 21st century runs headlong into 1947, is a roadside attraction that must be seen to be believed. There are no Disney cartoon characters or underwater mannequins, but living, breathing, bubble-blowing mermaids just an hour drive north of Tampa. Weeki Wachee Springs attracts tourists from around the world, and during its heyday attracted celebrities including Elvis Presley. But in recent times the park has fallen into disrepair and is faced with a few financial and political woes.

Weeki Wachee is a theater built into a natural spring-allowing the audience to walk into an underwater world without getting wet. With today's environmental laws, there will probably never be another place like it in the U.S. Clad in their iridescent Lycra tails, the mermaids perform choreographed routines and stories and are sometimes joined by fish, turtles, and manatees-creatures that some say inspired the original mermaid legends.

4. A Naked Vacation
A fun-but-unscientific poll found out that more Americans are open to the idea of naked vacations, a.k.a. nakations. The poll found that 48 percent of Americans would be willing to bare it all at a nude beach. That's up from 31 percent last year. Why the increased interest in nakations? Are Americans' attitudes about nudity loosening up? Or are travelers simply looking to travel light - so they can avoid the hefty baggage fees now imposed by many airlines?

All you'll need for the week (sunscreen, cap, sunglasses, shoes and toiletries) can fit in a small carry-on that will fit under the seat, avoiding even carry-on bag fees. But saving money on baggage is one thing. But what about the risk of sunburn "down there?" It's a real concern, experts say. In other words, slather it on if you take it all off.

5. A Vacation Where You Can Swim With Pigs
Swimming with dolphins? You can go one better! Visit the paddling porcines in Big Major Cay and jump in for a dip if you're brave enough. They won't bite---well, as long as you don't whisper "BLT" within earshot.

6. A Vacation In A Little People Themed Park
If you've hit up all the SeaWorlds and Wisconsin Dells of the globe, why not take a trip to a make-believe town populated by little people? According to TEA, Asia has the fastest-growing theme-park market-with 77.6 million visitors for Asia's top 15 parks alone. One of the region's biggest recent openings was the 2009 blockbuster debut of Dwarf Empire, a hilltop park in southern China devoted to-and almost entirely staffed by-people under four feet tall. The park also gained worldwide media coverage for employing many of the country's height-challenged, who traditionally have had a hard time finding work. Thanks to the park, many of China's dwarves are now gainfully employed as everything from janitors to crown-wearing empresses.

7. A Trip to Afghanistan
Although it is not considered safe for tourists at the moment, many look forward to being able to visit Afghanistan in the near future. Why? Take a look at some of the remarkable places you would be able to visit and decide for yourself. Would you take a vacation to Afghanistan? Tthe City of Screams, the Minarets of Ghazni, the Blue Mosque – these are just some of the incredible sites of Afghanistan. Astonishing lakes, ancient destroyed cities and breathtaking landscapes may persuade you to think a little differently about this war torn but still spectacular country.

8. A Ghost Tour
While Halloween brings to mind ghosts and goblins, did you know that many ghostly tours are available throughout the year? Florida offers a collection of tours and excursions guaranteed to scare up the need to plan a day trip or weekend getaway. As entertaining as they are informative, ghost tours explore paranormal phenomenon that may have you believing... or not

9. An Underwater Vacation
Talk about an extreme vacation! An Australian adventurer spent two weeks living underwater, riding a bike to generate electricity and using algae to produce oxygen! Breathing air provided by algae soaked in his own urine, "aquanaut" Lloyd Godson spent 12 days living in a yellow steel capsule submerged in a flooded gravel pit.

The 29-year-old's claustrophobic ordeal was intended to shed light on the practical and psychological challenges of living in an alien environment. His temporary home, a 10ft long box, was billed as "the world's first self-sufficient, self-sustaining underwater habitat." Back on dry land, and toasting the success of the experiment with champagne, he admitted to suffering cabin fever.

Wray Nephew White Overproof Rum is merely the top-selling high strength rum in the world, bottled in 1940. Only four bottles are left from this precious liquor, each being estimated at $53,000.

Toothpaste can be dangerous too...

Do you know that a Toothpaste can be dangerous tool for you. Don't believe ! Read this first

Toothpaste even though (in some form or another) has been around as long as the Ancient Greeks have, the formula (as we know it) did not become popular until World War I. As soon as companies began manufacturing toothpaste, people began to purchase the magical concoction - guaranteed to produce glistening teeth! White teeth were all the rage after World War I had ended, and toothpaste quickly became a product that most people simply couldn't live without.

Toothpaste is one item that nearly everyone uses today, but what makes this concoction so special? Whether you brush your teeth once per day or three times per day, chances are that you've never taken the time to read that ingredient list. Some believe that the ingredients contained in a standard package of toothpaste are essential - others believe that water may be just as effective. In the end, there's a good reason why most toothpaste packages warn: "Do Not Ingest!"

10. Formaldehyde
That same ingredient that coroners can't live without can be found inside of your toothpaste tube. Formaldehyde kills all of those small bacteria that climb onto your teeth after eating or sleeping. If a large amount of formaldehyde is accidentally ingested, the result could be fatal. Severe formaldehyde ingestion results in jaundice, kidney damage, liver damage, and death.

9. Detergent
Foam, suds, activation! What would toothpaste be without that satisfying soapy feeling? Manufacturers use regular detergent in order to appease the masses that prefer bubbly toothpaste. While bubbles may be fun, be careful if you accidentally ingest a large amount of this stuff - swallowing detergent can cause digestive tract burning.

8. Seaweed
Stretchy and slimy, seaweed holds that paste together. Without this green stuff, toothpaste would simply fall apart! The good news is that seaweed isn't toxic. Infact, seaweed has a number of nutritional benefits, though hitting the sushi bar is a better way of gaining those benefits.

7. Peppermint Oil
Minty, minty, minty! Fresh breath can only be kept fresh with the help of peppermint oil! While refreshing when brushing your teeth using toothpaste, peppermint oil can cause a slow pulse, heartburn, and muscle tremors if it is consumed.

6. Paraffin
As slick as the petroleum that it is derived from, paraffin creates a smooth paste that oozes onto your toothbrush using toothpaste. As you might imagine, paraffin wasn't meant to be eaten. If you happen to swallow this ingredient, you may end up with abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and severe constipation.

5. Glycerin Glycol
Never heard of this ingredient before? Sure about that? Glycerin glycol is added to toothpaste in order to prevent the paste from becoming too dry – it's also found in antifreeze. Even though glycerin is not toxic, this additive may cause nausea if swallowed.

4. Chalk
That's right - chalk. Thanks to the fact that chalk is made from exoskeletons, it's hard enough to remove all of that caked on gunk from your pearly whites. Chalk dust may cause lung problems if inhaled via toothpaste, and swallowing a bit of chalk could cause bleeding.

3. Titanium Dioxide
This is another common toothpaste ingredient, though it's usually found in white paint. When added to toothpaste, titanium dioxide has the safe effect on your teeth as it does on walls - it keeps them nice and white (for a few hours, at least!). Ingesting titanium dioxide won't hurt you, but it isn't recommended either.

2. Saccharin
Something has to combat that terrible detergent taste! Saccharin is sweet, but not too sweet - just the way that most people like their toothpaste! Saccharin has been a hot topic of debate every since Theodore Roosevelt was in the White House. The USDA tried to ban the substance in 1972, though it is considered "safe" to ingest today.

1. Menthol
One last ingredient to add a minty note to your breath. Without menthol, toothpaste might taste like, well, chalk, glycerin, paraffin, detergent, titanium dioxide, and seaweed! Go ahead and ingest menthol if you like, but sipping some tea containing menthol is a far better idea than chewing on your tube of toothpaste.

"It is a shameful thing for the soul to faint while the body still perseveres." Marcus Aurelius Antonimus "One of the commonest mistakes and one of the costliest is thinking that success is due to some genius, some magic ? something or other which we do not possess.

It depends upon how much pluck and perseverance that word ?decide? contains. The decision that nothing can overrule, the grip that nothing can detach will bring success.
