A Guide For Antique Map Aficionados    Submitted as: Antique maps are not only one of the most precious
Antique maps are not only one of the most precious historical gems but also the most under-appreciated ones. Drawn by Greeks, Chinese, Babylonians and even Egyptians these old maps are also known to be incredible pieces of art. One of the first world maps, drawn by the Greek astronomer Ptolemy has today been recreated by experts. You may have often wondered as to how America looked before the civil war or what was the geography of Europe during the Roman rule. Maps made during these periods have been handed down with the passage of time or discovered through archeological searches. Now one of the main problems for those interested in buying antique maps and old maps is the price so decide your budget first. Old maps start at around $150 and the rates can even go up to as much as $100,000 upwards for the rare ancient maps, especially those from the 19th Century. As such, today may reproducers have come to the rescue for those who are unable to buy the original masterpieces. Many companies and artists specializing in recreating old maps right down to the very last minute detail. After you decide on the price factor the next thing in line is to decide as to what way you want to start collecting maps. Although the best idea is to go for something that you like and are attracted to, there are particular ways in which you can take your hobby forward, either collect antique and old maps in the ‘horizontal’ format or the ‘vertical’ format. Collecting ancient maps by a horizontal format means, concentrating on a particular mapmaker or on one single time period and collecting maps according to that. The vertical format implies collecting old maps from a particular region or country. The best place to start looking for antique and old maps is the local antique shops, map fairs and those antique book fairs where a range of maps, map dealers and reproducers are represented. The remade maps are sold in two formats; bound in an atlas or on individual sheets. Also, the internet is one of the best libraries and shopping malls of today. You can easily get replicas of old maps made. Also, you can get a wide variety of maps from one dealer itself. Whether you are a history buff, genealogy buff or just a plain hobbyist, collecting maps is always going to be interesting affair. Humans have mastered the art of map making by toiling for long hours over a period of centuries. People from all around the world have made attempts to map the area which they live in. Today, even though the entire world has been neatly mapped out in front of us and we have easy access to them thanks to GPS and other modern technologies, an old map will always be an altogether different experience that’s unique in itself.(read entire article)

A Guide To Buying Your Autumn Boots    Submitted as: It’s that time of year again when women everywhere
It’s that time of year again when women everywhere start to trawl high street shops and online retailers for their perfect designer shoes and autumn boots. This guide will take you through the steps to choosing the perfect boots to keep you warm and comfortable this season. Autumn boots are probably one of the biggest footwear investments you’ll make every year so it’s important that you really consider every aspect and work out exactly what you’re looking for. Think about the style, colour, material and design, as well as what budget you have. This autumn boots buying guide will help you to figure what’s important and what you should look for when buying your new autumn boots. Waterproof material and sole You won’t need to worry about wet feet if you buy some good quality leather boots for autumn. When buying your boots make sure that there are no places in the design or on the sole where water will be able to leak in; there’s nothing worse than having wet feet in boots. It’ll also mean you can wear your new boots whatever the weather; ideal for rainy and sunny autumn days when you just can’t decide on your footwear. A slip proof and gripped sole As it gets nearer to winter you’ll want a pair of boots with a reliable gripped sole that won’t slip on wet leaves or icy pavements. Look for boots with chunky ridged soles that offer plenty of grip and if your favourite boots aren’t holding up, you could always rub them with a bit of sandpaper to increase their grip. Versatile and comfortable boots As with any footwear it’s important that you buy the right size, especially if you plan on wearing your boots all day. Measure your feet and the width to get your exact foot size. Try your new boots on with the socks or tights that you plan on wearing with them the most; this will give you an idea if they fit well or not. Try walking around normally in them too, you don’t want to invest in a pair of boots that you don’t end up wearing because they’re not comfortable or don’t fit well. Try to stay within a set budget It might be tempting to blow your budget on those gorgeous boots you’ve always wanted but when buying autumn boots it’s vital that you set yourself a budget and stay within it. You’ll mostly be wearing your new boots for autumn and winter so keep that in mind when buying, but also remember that a good quality pair of boots should also see you through to the following autumn. Staying in with the latest fashions Although autumn boots need to be practical and versatile, they also need to be stylish! So when deciding which boots you want to buy take a look at the latest trends and see if any take your fancy like military style boots, shoe boots or even clog boots. But don’t over do because you’ll want to be able to wear them from autumn to spring, so don’t buy a pair that will go out of fashion quickly.(read entire article)

Several diabetes cure enable individuals afflicted with this disease to lead a full and active life. One of the ways of treating diabetes is by consuming natural supplements. This frees an individual from being dependent on medicines that can have myriad side effects as well. Inclusion of useful supplements and minerals help to control diabetes naturally.

Products that are made using these herbs and other natural supplements like garlic, magnesium, chromium, onion, bitter melon, fenugreek etc. help to maintain healthy glucose levels in the body. Certain factors must be considered before deciding to adopt natural diabetes cure. • Although herbal and natural supplements seem to be devoid of side effects unlike medications prescribed for diabetes, these natural diabetes cure can also have some side effects as well.
