Phantom Power Supply

Aside from being a guitarist since high school, Lenard is also an electronics hobbyist though he never used it as a profession. Yesterday, he was asked by my father to build phantom power supply to be used for microphone. And so he made a basic 12 volt phantom power supply, he was able to construct it after several hours.

The circuit will provide 5 milliamps of phantom power and is designed to operate an electret condenser microphone.


How Much Hair Loss Is OK?


Hair loss may affect anyone, especially as we get older. But for some, excessive hair loss can be a problem. So, just how much hair loss is normal?

According Dr. James C. Marotta, a New York-based leading hair restoration specialist, average women can expect to be shedding 50-100 hair follicles on a daily basis even up to 150 in some cases. This is the normal amount of hair a healthy scalp can except to lose on a daily basis. So don’t panic when you see stray of hairs in the shower drain. Shedding is necessary in order for new, healthy pieces of hair to grow in the old hair’s place.

However, if you are noticing more than just a few strands of hair falling out while shampooing or brushing your hair, or if follicles are actually coming out in large clumps of hair, its time to seek support and see your doctor.

There are many different reasons that you could be losing large amounts of hair, including excessive stress or lack of essential vitamins in your diet.

Excessive hair loss can also be a sign that something more serious is happening within your body. More and more women are dealing with hair loss problems than ever, and there are many different types of treatment and support available to help overcome this problem.

You can simply reduce losing hair in large quantities such as by reducing stress in your life, proper diet more vegetables and fruits, and exercise on a daily basis.

Scented Candles As Stress Reliever

Had a stressful day at work? I know something to help you calm – scented candles!


I know you won’t believe it but studies show that many moods can be changed due to the scents as the human body is quite sensitive to various scents. Certain aromatherapy scents are said to trigger reactions within the body which relieve stress, enhance mental clarity and concentration, creating a relaxing mood. It’s even great for those who have insomnia and want to get a good night’s rest.

Some companies in Japan even use scents to improve productivity – scents of lemons in the morning, at midday the scent of roses reduce stress, and in the afternoon the scent of cypress is used as a pick-me up mood.

I guess it wouldn’t hurt to try lighting a diptyque candles to activate our senses into different moods.
