Answering Questions About the ASVAB

with No Comments

armed-forces-logoThe Home AUVI blog is constantly receiving requests from many of our loyal readers to provide information regarding the ASVAB test. Accordingly, in this blog post we will take the time to finally provide information on this important subject. First of all, the acronym ASVAB stands for the “Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery.” This is a test administered by the U. S. Armed services to all candidates for enlistment in any branch of the U. S. Armed Services including the U. S. Army, the U. S. Navy, the U. S. Marines Corps, the U. S. Air Force, the U. S. Coast Guard and the U. S. National Guard.

Because a career in the U. S. Armed Services can be an exciting and rewarding life experience it is very important to perform well on the ASVAB. Accordingly, it is very important for the candidate for enlistment in the U. S. Armed Services to properly prepare beforehand. Many people who have performed successfully on the ASVAB report preparing for the test by taking multiple versions of the ASVAB practice test. By taking a practice version of the ASVAB, the candidate for enlistment will become familiarized with the test format as well as learn which of the ten subject areas covered by the ASVAB will require additional focus in order to optimize performance on the day of the test.

Like the ASVAB test itself, the ASVAB practice test covers the same ten distinct subject areas. These subject areas include (1) General Science (GS), (2) Arithmetic Reasoning (AR),
(3) Word Knowledge (WK), (4) Paragraph Comprehension (PC), (5) Mathematics Knowledge (MK), (6) Electronics Information (EI), (7) Auto & Shop Information (AS), and (8) Mechanical Comprehension (MC). The test itself is comprised of two sections. The first section of the ASVAB is a standardized multiple choice exam. The second section of the ASVAB is a written format.

Musing While Walking Along a Gurgling Stream

with No Comments

streamAs the days grow darker and colder I find my mind turning inward. I go for walks amidst the cold wind and the falling leaves. I look up and see the branches bare and stark against the pale blue sky. With my hands in my pockets and my chin pressed into my breast my philosophical view of the world is stoic. There is a small stream running along the path I typically find myself walking. On a normal day I can hear the water churn and gurgle through the rocks and sticks in the channel. The water keeps pushing its way through day after day. Eventually it inflicts enough water damage Utah to break up the sticks and push them aside. I observe its progress daily when I walk past.

Sometimes I think about how long this water will continue to flow. I ask myself if there will ever be a day when the water stops flowing along its path. I am sure when that day arrives I will no longer be walking this route. There will be many days in between that day and today. There will be much water damage Utah inflicted upon the sticks and rocks in the stream. The stream itself might even change course between then and now.

Of course if I think along these lines for an extended period of time my thoughts eventually begin to ask me what its all about and whether there is any meaning to it all. From my daily perspective this stream seems eternal. It was there yesterday, the water flows today and I have no doubt that it will be flowing tomorrow. But someday it will stop flowing and so will I. The day after, I do not know if I will have any sense of myself or if the lights will be turned out for good.

No Easy Task

FloodIt is a well established principle that water can cause damage to houses. Whether this water arrives in the form of rain, floods or leaking pipes the amount of water damage Utah it can cause can be both extensive and costly. When this water damage is inflicted upon a house or other structure immediate steps must be taken to mitigate the damage before it gets even worse. These steps typically involve first draining or otherwise removing any standing water that remains and second drying the structure once the standing water has been removed. The longer the standing water remains the more damage it will cause.

In addition to removing the standing water, the structure must be properly dried. If it is not properly dried the chances that mold will set in and begin to grow and spread significantly increases as time goes on. Once mold begins to grow inside a water damaged structure it becomes very difficult to remove. Very often a professional mold remediation expert must be hired to properly perform this task so that the mold does not return. Mold can also begin to grow in hidden places which is another important reason to hire a professional mold remediation expert.

Once the house or structure has been properly dried the house or structure must then be properly assessed to determine what repairs are necessary to maintain the house or structure’s integrity. This inspection process always requires a professional to determine the extent the water damage Utah inflicted upon the structure. The inspection, once conducted will provide useful information as to what structural repairs are required to return the house to its original habitable state of being. Once these repairs are determined then the appropriate contractors must then be hired to make these repairs. Returning a water damaged house back to its original state of repair is most definitely no easy task.

The Counter Intuitive Profitability of Hiring a Home Cleaning Service in Salt Lake City

dustingMany people think that hiring a service to perform home cleaning Salt Lake City is too expensive. Well, I am here to tell you that you cannot afford not to hire a home cleaning service. I will make my point directly, perhaps more directly than you are used to being addressed. But being blunt is in my nature and I am now giving you fair warning that if this type of interaction offends your sensibilities you are hereby encouraged to go read a blog post on some other link farm. Because you see my friend that the simple fact of the matter should be as plain as the nose that sits upon your face. The fact to which I am presently referring is a very important fact and certainly not one to be casually overlooked by any stretch of the imagination.

If you do not hire a home cleaning Salt Lake City then you will have to spend all the time and effort the cleaning services spends to clean your very messy house. This is time that you could otherwise be spending achieving mastery in your line of business. That is where your cost savings and profit making will come into play. In other words, you will never become a millionaire by saving money because you chose to get down on your hands and knees to scrub the floor rather than spending that time developing your business.

I think that if you have read this far then the point that I have so eloquently made should be very deeply impressed within your cerebral cortex. That point is (as if you did not already know) that hiring a cleaning service not only saves you money, it actually increases your profitability. This may seem counter intuitive. That is fine. Let it be that way.

Avoiding Water Damage to Personal Possessions

with No Comments

FloodChapter 6, Verse 5 of the Old Testament Book of Genesis describes how God witnessed man’s wickedness. Observing this wickedness caused God to regret having created man in the first place. One might rightly inquire as to how an all powerful and perfect divinity would put itself in the position of having regretted making a creation that did not properly live up to its expectations. That inquiry is not answered within the Book of Genesis to anyone’s satisfaction. However, many have posited that it is God’s decision to endow man with free will that allowed for this undesirable outcome. Nevertheless, God found Himself in this position and he had to deal with it in some manner.

The manner in which He chose to deal with it was to destroy the men of his creation through a world wide flood. There is no doubt that this flood caused uncountable water damage Utah all across the earth. There was of course one man and his family whom God chose to escape this destruction. That man was of course the patriarch named Noah. God instructed Noah as to how to built the giant floating vessel known to us as the ark. This ark was intended to house Noah, his family as well as a representative sampling of all the animals inhabiting the world. It seems difficult to imagine that two of each species was able to fit into the ark. Obviously, there is no need to include the aquatic species but even without them it seems to be a difficult if not impossible task.

Be that as it may, according to the story, Noah does build the ark and populate it with his family and two of every living animal. Once inside the ark the rains began to fall and the flood covered the face of the earth. Safe aboard the ark, Noah and the others were able to avoid certain death as well as sustaining water damage Utah to the personal possessions they were able to secure aboard the ark.

LED-Night-Light-GAL000-NightLight.GalleryAn electrician Weber County has the distinct opportunity to aid in the success of the community in which the electrician makes his or her living. Moreover through the daily practice of all the various tasks that an active electrician executes on a daily basis the electrician will gain in practical knowledge. In many ways this hands on experience is very unique compared to other tradesmen who actively service a community. The primary difference that makes an electrician a unique profession is certainly no surprise. That is, the primary difference that makes an electrician a unique profession is that an electrician works with electricity and comes to know how it behaves. In a sense one could say that an electrician comes to know the mind of electricity.

A Sweet Savor Unto the Scentsy Customer

with No Comments

ScentsyWhen the early Hebrews offered their burnt offerings in the Temple of Solomon the biblical stories describe the smoke emitted from the charred animal sacrifice as a sweet savor unto the Lord. In other words the personification of the divine as depicted in the Old Testament found the scent produced by the burnt offering to be physically pleasing. In a similar way a sales consultant who has made the commitment to join Scentsy offers up a sweet savor unto every Scentsy customer to whom they sell the amazing panoply of Scentsy products.

 

There is a logic to this somewhat surprisingly apt metaphor. There are three parties to the ritual, animal sacrifice performed in the Hebrew temple. First there is the worshiper who purchases the animal to be sacrificed and brings it to the temple. Second there is the temple priest who performs the sacrifice according to the correct procedure and acts as an intermediary between the worshiper and the divinity to whom the sacrifice is being made. Finally there is the divinity Himself who receives the sacrifice. Similarly, there are three parallel parties to the Scentsy sales transaction. First there is the Scentsy corporation who makes the amazing panoply of Scentsy products. This party is like the worshiper in that it gives the product to the intermediary. Second there is the sales consultant who did join Scentsy in order to act as the intermediary between Scentsy and the customer much like the Hebrew priest. Third, there is the Scentsy customer who receives the sweet savor unto himself in the form of the fragrance emitted by the Scentsy product.

 

It is no act of blasphemy to compare a Scentsy customer to the Hebrew divinity. This is true because the analogy was intended for explanatory purposes only. Clearly, for one to commit an act of blasphemy the intent to do so must be present and accompany the act itself.
