Freelancing

I have been having quite a bit of constant freelancing projects for the past month or so.

One of them "Woodward-partners" is completed with Regine
http://www.woodward-partners.com/dev (Note it is under some modification by another developer).

The second one is Dell-Privilege. But I stop working halfway due to some poor project management by the Business Analyst
http://www.dell-privilege.com/

I have one new project coming along but it is still under negotiation between the Business Analyst and the client to close the deal. Once again, I will work with Regine again.

Just another excuse to stay together.

Standard Chartered Bank 2FA

UOB 2FA

Internet Banking in Singapore

2FA stands for Second Factor Authentication. With 2FA, you are better guarded against online crimes such as Trojans and phishing attacks.

By next year, all banks will need to be equiped with this new security feature. Already, I am using this 2FA with MayBank. I would say MayBank is the pioneer to kick start this new technology. Very soon, DBS Bank will follow suit too!

Toolkit to Disable Automatic Delivery of Internet Explorer 7

IE7 was released to the general public few days ago. What many do not realize is that it is being sent out as a high priority automatic update to Windows XP SP2 users. So many/most users are likely to update like it or not. It could lead to problems for some unknown reason if IE7 is running on a computer causing some legacy system not to function. In any case there is a tool to block the automatic update for IE7 this tool can be found here:

Why Green Tea Helps to Lose Weight

Recent studies show that green tea can help greatly in the process of losing weight. It does it by increasing the body's metabolism. If consumed regularly, it can help you burn as much as eighty calories extra. In a year, that’s about 8 pounds; you lose that much just by drinking, even without diet and exercise.

To further enlighten you as to how green tea works, read on below:

Green tea slows down the absorption of fats and regulates glucose. The same substance, cathechin polyphenol, restrains the transition of glucose into fats. By doing that, experts believe that green tea is an effective glucose regulator. It effectively prevents insulin spikes and slows the rise of blood sugar after every meal. Insulin, as specialists agreed upon, promotes the storage of fats as it deals with the body’s blood sugar.

Green tea has the ability to reduce appetite. Because green teas have regulating effects on the blood sugar, people who drink it are observed to eat food as much as 60 percent lesser than usual. This particular hypothesis was proven when green tea was injected into laboratory rats for experimentation. Researchers believe that it has the same effects on humans.

Green tea is a good alternative to coffee. If you drink tea instead of coffee in the morning or throughout the day, your body gets fewer calories in the long run. The sugar and the cream included in your daily cappuccinos add inches and bulges to the waistline. But with green tea, instead of accumulating fats, you are actually reducing its build up.

Green tea affects the bodily systems positively. A parallel research about green tea brings forward its overall effects in the body. The systems benefiting from it include cardiovascular, respiratory, circulatory, nervous, urogenital, immune, lymphatic, and musculoskelatal systems. With this, green tea shows to have a very broad effect on the body. Only a few types of food can boast of this characteristic.
