5 Uses for a Steel Building or Metal Pole Barn

There isn't any product on earth as adaptable and inherently multi-purpose as steel, and there is no structure as useful and efficient as a steel building. Here are five great uses for one of many steel buildings or metal garages that may surprise you...
5. An Indoor Nursery.
Now this may be news to you, but steel is pretty much impervious to mold. Unlike the traditional nursery housing with wood and plastic sheeting, steel is super effective against organic causes of decay. While steel isn't the most see-through material in the world, set up a few sets of energy-efficient grow lights and some built-in drip irrigation systems and you can have an internal grow operation for seedlings and small plants that can be run 24 hours a day without any detriment from stormy weather or an overabundance of fungal damage. Not only will going with a steel building save money, but it will help increase your plant production greatly!
4. A Motorcycle Repair Shop.
Everyone wishes they had the right resources to set up their own shop, and a lot of us wish we could start our own Harley repair business but lack the funding necessary to build a traditional wood structure complete with commercial garage. Well, not any more. Steel garages so affordable they bring every guy's dream of running his own business into a reality. With concrete flooring and secure, weather-safe doors, you will have both the means and the space available for a perfect motorcycle repair business.
3. A School Vehicle and Maintenance Garage.
Besides performing well by giving every child an excellent education, schools are also tasked with an incredibly difficult challenge of balancing their budget line by line, as detailed as possible They really have to be frugal when it comes to building any structure, and the cost of building a traditional wood and cement structure to use as a bus-housing unit or a maintenance shop for the school janitor is going to be out of the price range of almost any school, not to mention the difficulty of having to guarantee it's safety and structural integrity in regards to storms and inclement weather. The best solution for any school district is steel. Steel buildings hold up great against all types of weather and have been tested against hurricane-force gusts. Not only can they be sized large enough to store your school busses, but they also provide great shelter in times of high wind.
2. A Woodshop.
You've always wanted to have a small woodshop where you could build tables, cabinets, or vintage-style wood toys but never wanted to ruin the basement with tons of sawdust and destroy your homelife with the noise it would make. Now, with one of many excellent metal garages you can have enough room to build anything you'd like with the added option of insulating the walls as well to keep down the sound of saws and drills. This means more enjoyment on the weekend for you, and less headaches for your spouse!
1. A Dog Kennel.
Dog kennels are notoriously difficult to build and maintain if you go the traditional wood and concrete route, but with a steel building you can save yourself a lot of trouble right from the beginning. By installing the steel exterior structure overtop a pre-poured floor, you can mount fenced in dog-runs and drains easy and efficiently. With walls made of metal you don't have to be worried about the constant water you will be spraying to clean out each of the kennel openings. This not only saves you money, but saves damage that could have been created should you have gone with a traditional wood structure.

Pakistani Government Hiding Bin Laden From Us or Keeping Him For Us

That's the question that everyone is talking about right now. We are all happy that Bin Laden is gone and the mastermind of terror won't be walking around to terrorize the world any longer, but many questions have cropped up since the good news of his death.
What kind of role did Pakistan play in all this? Are they friends or foes? Are their people that we can trust to work with in our continued efforts in the war on terrorism? Let's lie this all out on the table and take a good look at this map we have in front of us.
After 9/11, Osama Bin Laden becomes the number one terrorist on the planet. The largest man hunt in human history begins. He runs into the hills and caves of Afghanistan and this cat and mouse game with the US begins.
He eludes us for a couple of years. We come close to getting him, but he always finds another escape hole and runs off somewhere else.
Now the hills he was hiding in Afghanistan are on the border of Pakistan, and many people think that he is making his way into Pakistan. All the while he is looking for a safe haven from one of his brother Islamic countries. He's not getting a lot of offers except from Pakistan.
I think Pakistan made him an offer shortly after 911, but he had to be very careful and it took a long time for him to be sold on the idea. I think Pakistan brought him in and showed him what they were going to do for him. They showed him the compound that they would build and how close it was to their army and how safe he would be. Bin Laden was a very well educated and disciplined man, and it was a very slow sell, but as time went on, it started to look better and better to him, as he was not getting any other offers for a permanent residing place, where he could run his terror organization from.
What a better location, right in the middle of a populated city and the Pakistani troops just down the street just in case there is trouble. Brilliant...right? Just one thing, the Pakistani government had other plans.
Bin Laden hides in those mountains for maybe two or three years and decides that sleeping on rocks is not very comfortable and he his starting to think about the compound that the Pakistani government is offering him.
We don't close off that border and he escapes into Pakistan, and the Pakistani government is reluctant to have us come barging into their country and look for him so they keep us out and they restrict our movement around their borders. This is all so that Bin Laden can get comfortable with his new home.
All the while the Pakistani government is working on us, trying to get aide from us in different types of ways, to help them with their government affairs and their own economic woes. There was an ulterior motive for everything Pakistan was doing and it wasn't because they loved Bin Laden and it wasn't because they loved us either, they were looking out for only themselves in this whole matter. They were putting together a strategic plan to get Osama Bin Laden, and rid the world of the biggest and most wanted man histories has ever known and get something for themselves out of the deal.
Bin Laden moves into his new home and he lives there for almost six years. There is very little movement in and around the compound and the curious neighbors are told it is a military training facility and that was enough to keep them satisfied. After all, there were military all around the area. This kept the eyes and attention off the compound and gave Bin Laden a safe place to run his machine of terror.
Now the stage is set. The US, just last July gave an aid package to Pakistan in the tune of almost 8 billion dollars. Pakistan has what it wants now and turns its back as the US forces come in and do their job. How else do you explain a compound, in the middle of a populated area, right down the street from 30,000 Pakistani troops, and US helicopters fly in, one explodes, then they run out and no one hears or sees anything?
The explanation coming from both, the US and the Pakistan governments, is one of niceties and pats on the back. Pakistan is upset that the US went in without their knowledge or permission and the US is applauding the great friend they have in Pakistan. You are not going to hear anything different. Pakistan doesn't want any trouble from their Islamic neighbors and the US wants to keep the door open in case they are needed in the future.

Do You Own an Alpha Mind

Okay so, you're probably wondering what an Alpha Mind is? Well, you know what an Alpha Male is right, an Alpha Male is an inherent and a born leader of the group, he is the head gorilla, chimpanzee, or human in the pecking order. The alpha male is someone who takes charge, and is considered the fearless leader. Now then, when we describe an Alpha Mind, we are talking about someone with superior intellect, and a strong sense of self-confidence and personal character.
This would be someone who has a brain which is focused on the mission, accomplishing objectives, and undeterred when it comes to fear or operating within the face of adversity. The alpha mind is one that rises to the occasion, and finds opportunity in crisis. If you have an alpha brain, and as I am describing this to you, then perhaps you understand why thinking this way is so valuable and important. A take-charge leader with a mind which is focused is very valuable.
If you don't own an Alpha Mind, you could, that is to say it is possible from going from a follower type mind to that of an original thinker. It's easy to have a mind which just soaks up information, and adopts the opinion on the nightly news for their political persuasion. It's very easy to go along with the flow and except all the information that is fed to you from various sources in your life. It doesn't take a lot of brains to fully subscribe to everything taught to you during your education, or explained to you in your job, or even adopt everything preached to you by your religion.
Any human can do that, and if you do, well, in a way you are formatting your brain to accept information without thinking, without asking questions, and that would be the opposite of an Alpha Mind. And Alpha Brain is one which thinks for itself and is not afraid to ask questions. It's not afraid of original thinking or original thoughts. In fact in Alpha Mind splashes itself with chemical rewards in the brain whenever it unveils an innovative or creative thought.
Of course, even an alpha brain is subject to manipulation, and if you have one, then you should be using it, not only to the advance of self, but also to help the whole of society. Indeed, I hope you will please consider all this and think on it. If you have any comments, concerns, questions, or even case studies I'd be glad to hear from you. Please shoot me an e-mail.
