Embracing Elegance

One thing that comes up a lot on this here map is the need, or rather want, to be healtheir and more confident.  I hereby announce my intention to try to be more confident and poised regarding my appearence.  Regular lurking on style and beauty forums reminded me of  the old addage "Fake it til you Make it" - this helps condience start to simmer away.  Also, if you want to be considered elegant, act it.  Cut your hair, appear neat and invest in clothes that don't make you look like a student of old or a reject from a sad sitcom in the early 90s.  All sage advice.  

 

So I decided this evening was time to begin a more consistent skin routine.  I cleansed, buffed, masked, cleansed and hydrated my now very lobster like skin.  It does feel smoother, a little clearer and yet I am slightly meh about the whole experience.  But, I do realise that this new hobby of mine is about creating new habits, tehrefore we'll continue the whole shebang on the morrow.  Disclaimer:  I also have upped the water consumption - 4 glasses today.  Here's to new habits, cheers!

 

What sort of things do you do appearence wise to make you feel more confident and put together? x

Online wagering is increasing in popularity as it is easily accessible through websites which market these services widely. However, few studies have examined online betting based on actual behavioural data. This paper describes the results of an analysis of more than 2.5 million bets placed with an Australian online wagering operator over a 1-year period. The majority of bets placed were for a win (45.31 %) and were placed on races (86.74 %) or sports (11.29 %). Sports betting was dominated by ball sports, reflecting popular interest in these events. More than three-quarters (77.63 %) of the bets were losses and there was large variation in bet size between bet types and events bet on although average bets were higher than in previously reported studies. The most popular bets placed to win, had a relatively high rate of losses and lowest average returns, which may reflect less sophisticated betting behaviour. More specific handicap and total bets were placed by fewer customers, but were larger bets with the greatest returns. Similarly, bets placed on less popular sporting events had greater average returns potentially reflecting greater customer sophistication and knowledge raising the possibility of a proportion of bettors being more 'skilled'. As the first paper to analyze the types of bets placed on events and outcomes the results support the notion that wagering is an entertainment activity, and the majority of customers are motivated by factors other than simply winning money.
