Super Drink


Do you or someone you know suffer from inflammation and its related health problems? If so, you should check out this product called Nopalea. I just recently heard about this anti-inflammatory wellness drink and its many health benefits for our bodies. Nopalea is said to taste like a fruit juice made from the flowers of a cactus plant. It has been used for many centuries by native peoples as a natural source of many rare and potent antioxidants that have been proven to help the body reduce inflammation. When you take Nopalea everyday, it can help your body reduce inflammation, cleanse itself of daily toxins and promote optimal health. Nopalea is not intended to treat, diagnose, cure or prevent disease.

The twelve year old company that markets Nopalea has sold over three million bottles so far so why not give it a try and see if it works for you? By calling them at 1-800-203-7063, you can get a free bottle for the cost of $9.95 for shipping and handling. Feel free to visit their site for more details. I was very impressed with the site when I visited and am intrigued to find out more about this amazing drink.

Nature & Wildlife Photography Tips – Florian Schulz on Nature Photos Nature and wildlife photographer Florian Schulz joins us today on the Marc Silber Show – Advancing Your Photography! Florian shares some amazing wildlife photography tips and tricks for taking stunning landscape photos. As with all photography, Florian says you need to get to know your subjects — in this case, the natural lighting, landscape, and wildlife of the scene you’re shooting. He loves taking pictures of entire ecosystems at different times of the day and year, and emerses himself in the natural world. Even though so much is out of your control when it comes to nature photography, you can still work with lighting and composition by choosing when to shoot and where to position yourself in a scene. Florian Schulz was named Conservation Photographer of the Year by the National Wildlife Federation and Nature’s Best, and has had his photos featured in the Natural History Museum in New York and several other recognized museums. His passion for photography comes from the mix of adventure and experience of the world he gets each time he goes out and shoots!

Q&A: What camera should I purchase for my upcoming safari?

Question by Max F: What camera should I purchase for my upcoming safari?
I’m going to eastern Africa on March 19 and am looking for a good camera to take on my safari. I have no experience with photography, however am willing to put in some time to learn how to use a quality camera if it is necessary. I’m a 20 year old student at a university so I can learn and pick things up relatively quickly. My budget is about $ 1000. Again, the main purpose for this camera is to take pictures of animals on a safari. I’ve done a little research comparing ultra zoom cameras with dslr cameras, so I understand some of the lingo, but I’m definitely still a beginner and having trouble making a decision. Any help would be greatly appreciated and if you guys have any suggestions on what features to look for or even specific cameras and accessories that you think I could use that would be great. The more specific the better!

Answer by EE dude
The ultra zoom variety of camera are convenient and reasonably compact, making them less cumbersome to carry around. A DSLR will give you the ability to use multiple lenses aimed more at your specific need, as well as offer a vastly superior image quality. Some of the higher power lenses used by professional wildlife photographers can run thousands of dollars each, but that is outside the scope of your needs. I personally shoot with the Nikon D90 and find it to be a camera of excellent quality. If I were going on your trip, I’d take my D90 with my 70-300mm G series lens. The lens will give good reach without the outrageous price tag of a more pro-grade lens. You probably still won’t be able to get close enough for some subjects, but any shortcoming will be offset by your ability to enlarge the image due to the higher quality sensor.
