Panasonic’s DVD-RV31S DVD-video player delivers a combination of quality video and special features usually found only in more expensive players, if at all. Among many other features, the DVD-RV31S offers MP3 playback, robust connectivity, and an advanced version of Panasonic’s simulated surround sound with proprietary Bass Plus technology and a dedicated subwoofer output.
This unit’s state-of-the-art component-video outputs allow for digital video transmission to compatible video equipment. It also offers standard composite-video outputs and an S-video output. A built-in 27 MHz/10-bit digital-to-analog video converter maximizes picture quality from these outputs, while brightness, color, and contrast controls let you fine-tune picture quality.
A digital-cinema mode illuminates the picture and fine-tunes color, even in low-light scenes. Additional video features include one-touch cinema memory, freeze frame, frame advance, and black-level controls.
An optical digital-audio output channels a bitstream for DTS and Dolby Digital surround sound, fostering glorious home-theater sound when decoded with an appropriate surround receiver.
Advanced Virtual Surround Sound (VSS) simulates a surround effect using only your two front speakers. Furthermore, the DVD-RV31S’s dialogue enhancer pumps up the center-channel output to emphasize a movie’s spoken audio. A 96-kHz/24-bit digital-to-analog audio converter and dynamic range compression (for late-night viewing) complete the DVD-RV31S’ robust audio arsenal.
If you’re not quite ready for 5.1-channel audio but already have a powered subwoofer, you’ll appreciate the versatility of this player’s discrete subwoofer output. The DVD-RV31S’s pair of analog-audio stereo outputs along with its subwoofer output simulate theatrical sound by setting up a two-channel-plus-bass output that sends all low-frequency information to your subwoofer.
A built-in stabilizer and twin-laser pickup offers improved playability with the DVD-RV31S. Playback formats include DVD-video, video CD, audio CD, MP3-encoded CD, CD-R, and CD-RW. (Please note, however, that MP3 playback may vary depending on the content and disc type used.)
For your viewing convenience Panasonic’s high-speed scan comes with five speeds, and the player also offers chapter preview, updated onscreen menu icons, a front-panel jog-shuttle dial, and a multibrand remote control.
Panasonic’s DVD-RV31S comes in silver and is Energy Star compliant. This model is covered by a one-year parts, 90-days labor warranty.

Physical exhaustion is caused by a lot of factors like- poor nutrition, alcohol and drug abuse. It can also be caused by hormonal changes in your body such as perimenopause.Unlike mental exhaustion as well as emotional exhaustion are caused by excessive worrying and stress.Physical, mental and emotional exhaustion all contribute to anxiety. And anxiety may lead to panic attacks.If you think worrying thoughts, feeling jittery about your physical symptoms ( e.g. rapid heartbeat) or something external like a drop of glass or door slammed it may put you in a tailspin of anxiety then a downward spiral leading to full-blown panic attacks.
To counter-act this vicious cycle of anxious thoughts and to not be susceptible to any illness, you need to be able to learn wise management of stress. You need to be able to learn how to relax and just roll with the punches.Here are some techniques to battle stress, anxiety and eventually panic attacks. And do it the natural way without popping pills.Are you ready? Okay here goes:1.Use marjoram essential oil. This aromatherapy product is great for relaxing tense muscles when applied topically. It can relax muscles around the air ways helping you breathe easier when you inhale the vapors of marjoram essential oil. It can be trustful help for people with anxiety, depression and panic attacks. The effects of this oil makes you adopt a healthy attitude and handle your emotions better and deal with stress overload.
2 Equip yourself with your tools. Music, aromatherapy vials, water, charged cell phone, stuff animal to pet when anxious (if that’s your bag),mp3 player, crossword puzzle. Have them handy just in case the panic beast arrives.3.Reach out to others. Most anxious and depressed people are often isolated. They go on for days or even weeks without interacting with another human being. Yes, that’s true. The continued isolation will take a toll on you and will negatively affect your health. So go out there say hi to your neighbors. Call your friends. Seek out companionship either your family or online friends. Join support groups, baseball team or the drama club. Attend religious congregation or volunteer at your local charitable institution.I don’t mean you have to go from shy to social butterfly overnight. Just start small. Soon you will have a solid network of support. That’s means a lively existence and no more room for anxiety and panic.4.When the tide of panic waves in- start naming things in front of you especially when you are driving. Say: Red Porsche 911 turbo, Beach boys’ Surfin’ USA on the radio, power steering wheel, 4 wheel drive etc. By saying what you see- it will tell your brain to stay in the present and focus. Just relax and don’t fight off panic’s looming power.Take a deep breath and like a wave let panic wash its way back to the shore. While doing this remind yourself that there’s no edge you can fall off from panic. Remember that there’s no mythical panic point of no return. You are safe, period. Just push any “what if” thoughts out of your mind by distracting yourself.5. Break out of your usual routine. Doing the same things over and over again can be monotonous, boring or even nauseating. You have to sometimes go for novelty. New places, new hobbies, new faces, new food anything new can add spice to your life. So do something new:-drive around a new neighborhood-take up fly fishing-enroll in yoga class- rally a friend into exploring the mountains
-try that delicious Japanese food in the new restaurant that just opened-grab your DSLR camera and shoot random scenesNow go and think of some new ways that will spell adventure and excitement in your life.6.If you are a Christian, bask in the teachings of the Bible. Sit still. Pray. Read the Holy Scripture. Deepen your relationship with God. Take a moment and appreciate the blessings God showered upon you and your family.If you are not religious, embrace the power of the Universe or a supreme being and let the light of energy shine upon you. And feel good. Let go of past mistakes, betrayals and brokenness. Heal yourself.7.Allow yourself some leeway. By this I mean, allow recovery time when you plot your hectic schedule for the day. Set a buffer. Whether it be time, money or opportunity. Just stay cool when things don’t go your way. Sure, it’s easier said than done. But learn to deal with uncertainty. Those who can’t are more prone to fret, nag and are often restless and frustrated. Remember the mantra… “go with the flow”… life is smoother that way. Less tension. Less stress.

The Canon EOS 70D replaces the very successful EOS 60D as the latest mid-range DSLR from the company. Released nearly 3 years after the older model, the 70D is a whole lot of improvements that converge in a single package. Some of Canon’s best technical advancements in digital photography over the past 3 years are thus all in this camera. Many of these features you may have already seen in the cheaper 700D (Rebel T5i) as well as the up-market 7D. Here we try to delve deeper into its features and find out what makes the new 70D a formidable DSLR.Main features· 20.2 megapixel APS-C sensor with Dual-pixel CMOS AF technology· DIGIC 5+ image processing engine· 7 fps continuous shooting speed· Viewfinder with superimposed electronic readout of shooting information· 19-point all cross-type AF system, with one dual cross-type center AF point available at f/2.8· 3″ vari-angle touchscreen LCD display with ClearView II and 1,040,000 dots display· Built-in HDR and multiple exposure modes· Built-in Wi-Fi· Stereo mic (second EOS camera to have this after the Rebel T5i)· ISO 100-12800 (standard)Features explained: The SensorThe first thing that deserves a mention is the 20.2 megapixel sensor. It has been redesigned from the ground up making it quite an improvement over the older 18 megapixel sensor of the 60D. The older sensor came with a DIGIC 4 image processing engine while the newer model gains a DIGIC 5+ image processing engine to boost its performance.
The really outstanding feature, however, is the dual-pixel CMOS AF technology that promises a quantum jump in autofocusing during movie mode. Standard phase-detection AF system uses a phase detection sensor array which receives some of the light coming through the lens for focusing. During video shooting, or when the live view feature is used, the camera no longer uses these phase detection sensors rendering it incapable of autofocusing. The dual-pixel CMOS AF technology uses two photo-diodes for each pixel on the sensor to counter this problem. The two photo-diodes work as phase-detection sensors, each looking at the light coming through one side of the lens. At the end they line the images up and thereby lock focus.The touch-screenAnother important feature of the 70D is its fully-articulated ClearView II LCD touchscreen sporting a 1,040,000 dots display. This is something that has already been integrated into the Rebel T5i that released earlier and promises a world of difference from those migrating from the 60D. The touchscreen allows the photographer to control all of the features of the camera simply by a few finger taps.Live viewThe 70D shares a number of its Live-view features with the entry level Rebel T5i and the T4i. The Live-view functionalities are enhanced by the Q mode which offers a lot of shooting options and a total control over the features of the camera.Continuous shooting speedThe 70D comes with a faster continuous shooting speed compared to the 60D; 7 fps compared to 5.3 fps. While it does sound a bit better, it is still nowhere near what you would ideally want to have in order to shoot sports or high-speed action photography. Still, it is better than nothing.Creative featuresOne of the good things about the 70D is its built-in HDR and multiple exposure features. While HDR is a feature that is somewhat of a given with almost every new DSLR coming out of the assembly line these days having it, the multiple exposure mode offers photographers something new. For those who had shot using film and tried this using the film-technique know how precise one needs to be. Canon has made this rather easy. You can shoot 2 to 9 exposures in either RAW or JPEG mode using the built-in feature. However, one limitation is you can only use images shot in 3:2 ratio for this feature.Built-in Wi-FiWhile built-in Wi-Fi is no longer a novelty in DSLR cameras, its real world usability, however, is still limited. Canon’s latest 70D incorporates the Wi-Fi feature but packs too many connectivity issues that can irritate a serious user to the point he may not use it at all after a few attempts. For those die-hard Wi-Fi fans, however, the feature allows you to share your photos via a Wi-Fi network to your smartphones (as well as connect it directly), tablets and other compatible media devices. You can even transfer files to a PC, thanks to the optional EOS software.One immediate utility that comes to the mind is using remote shooting feature to shoot time-lapse images over a long period of time. One can set the camera on a tripod, lock AE and AF, connect it to a laptop via Wi-Fi and leave it to shoot for hours, without having to worry about running out of memory. The provided EOS software offers some other basic utilities too such as moving the focus point around, changing exposure etc.
The movie modeIt is a major offence not to mention about the 70D’s video mode. After all, the major improvement over the 60D is geared towards shooting videos. The 70D can record videos in MPEG-4 AVC / H.264 with stereo sound recording. The available frame rates are 30/25/24 fps in full-HD and 60/50 fps in 720p HD. One can plug in an external mic jack and record better quality audio. Additionally, the videographer can manually adjust the audio level using the built-in audio level controller. The 70D comes with two different video compression options. You can choose between the space conserving IPB or opt for the better quality but heavier ALL-I compression depending on your preference.My takeThe 70D is in the same segment in which the Nikon D7100 competes. The D7100 is a formidable camera in its own rights. It challenges the 70D in most of its features except may be the touch screen swivelling LCD and the dual-pixel CMOS AF sensor. Needless to say the biggest USP of the 70D is its superior auto-focusing in movie mode. As such it demands a dedicated fan following of users who prefer to shoot all their vacation videos using a DSLR. The D7100, however, scores over the 70D in its sensor resolution (24.1 megapixel vs. 20.2 megapixel), 51-point AF system, 100% viewfinder coverage and twin memory card slots. The choice again is more personal than anything, as both cameras are great pieces of tools in the right hands.

Warmer weather is on its way and that means that it’s time for family vacations, road trips, and other travel opportunities. If you’re looking for a new vehicle that will help you enjoy the spring and summer weather, consider one of the Toyota models presented below.1: PriusUnfortunately, spring and summer are also a time when gas prices usually begin climbing thanks to refinery plant maintenance and a busy travel season. If you’re looking for a way to hit the roads without spending a lot of gas, consider looking into a Toyota Prius. Recent Prius models get 50 or more miles per gallon and still have plenty of storage space left over for camping gear, beach equipment, or other vacation necessities.2: HighlanderIf you have a big family who will be accompanying you on your vacations or you just need lots of storage space, the Toyota Highlander has what you need. The Highlander has seating available for seven passengers, all without feeling cramped. Most Highlanders also have four-wheel drive, meaning that you don’t have to stick only to the well-traveled roads. With lots of space and enough versatility to bring you almost anywhere, this is a great vehicle for families who plan to take lots of trips together.3: TacomaFor those who don’t have to worry as much about passengers but need a rugged vehicle for outdoor jobs or rough travel, the Toyota Tacoma is an excellent choice. This midsize pickup truck has torque ranging from 180 pound-feet to 266 pound-feet, depending on the model. It also has excellent off-road capability, which means you can bring it practically anywhere. If you’re looking to take on some outdoor construction projects or just need to find an off-road campsite that will give you some peace and quiet, this is an excellent model.4: SiennaOne of the best minivans on the market, the 2013 Toyota Sienna recently landed on the US News list of top values for lease and purchase. This minivan combines the best features of space and efficiency. It seats up to eight passengers, yet is still capable of getting up to 25 miles per gallon on the highway. It also has some great technological features, such as a steering wheel console, Bluetooth connectivity, and music streaming. For family trips, this is one of the best minivans around.5: AvalonThe Toyota Avalon received an update in 2013 that has been very well-received. It provides a smooth, comfortable ride with more luxury than many people expect. The automatic transmission changes gears very smoothly, allowing you to enjoy the sights without worrying about engine difficulties. Most of all, the Avalon is an affordable vehicle, ranked #3 among affordable large cars by US News. Overall, this is an excellent pick if you are planning to buy a new car in the spring or summer.While there are many different cars out there to choose from in the coming months, you can’t go wrong with one of the selections listed above. All of them provide their own strengths and have very few drawbacks, meaning that you’ll have a great summer if you invest in one of them.
