The truth behind a gambling addiction

Gambling is always portrayed as a rich man’s hobby, a queasy obsession with the adrenaline rush which spirals into the world of addiction. How many times have we heard about the millionaire who washed all his wealth down the drain due to a gambling addiction. What is it about gambling that’s causing a man to waste all his hard-earned money on a simple card game.

Psychology

As we all know gambling offers a chance to win large sums of money but apart from that what are the emotions behind this addiction

Gambling offers feelings of excitement while taking risks and the positive high one gets on winning something due to the adrenaline rush is what gamblers crave for. The risk for reward scenarios triggers these adrenaline rushes, while the gambler bets on his skill, awareness and most importantly, luck.

Why do people gamble

Risk-taking: It’s basic human behaviour to feel excited about taking risks as it creates a sense of anticipation which causes people to attain a state of natural highness. It is a common feeling that we all seek in our daily lives but aren’t addicted to . But many fall prey to this addiction . Most gamblers are financially stable and can afford a minor loss, but most importantly, they know when to fold their cards.

 

False reality: Gamblers often go into a different world trying to get away from their mundane, monotonous life by gambling. May it be a glitzy casino in Vegas, a local arcade or by simply betting online or at auction houses gamblers prefer to immerse themselves in an attempt to escape from reality.

 

Display of wealth: Gambling often becomes a cheap public display of wealth with gamblers trying to show how deep their pockets are. Gambling is often portrayed as a very stylish and glamorous hobby which on people living a plush life. All this adds to the glamour of gambling and gives the common man a false hope of living the luxurious life.

 

Culture: Gambling is rooted to almost every culture in one form or another, may it be big casinos in America or in the suburbs of India. And anything which is part of the culture will always be prominent even if it isn’t a good deed. Gambling takes on different forms in different parts of the world, some as large scale corporate industries and some as hobby or even for recreational purposes.

The growth of the casino industry:  The growth of casino-based industries in the corporate sector has been tremendous and in the past decade these industries have made millions and millions of dollars owing to the fact that gambling has been attracting more customers than ever. Casino industries in most countries are simply monopolies as they own the major share of the total sector.

 

These are some of the major reasons behind why gambling is so popular and ever has been since its introduction to the modern world. The basic human psychology behind it is pretty simple but has adverse effects.

Electrical Testers

8 Types of Electrical Testers and Their Uses

Professional electricians use a number of testers to check a wide range of electrical functions in residential and commercial electrical wiring. Identifying these testers, understanding their functions, and learning how to use them will significantly expand your expertise. Some of these testers are multi-functional and can perform most of the typical electrical testing work, while some others are single-function tools. The tools described below fulfil that function.

Non-Contact Voltage Testers

Non-contact voltage testers are also known as inductance testers and are the safest testers around. Moreover, they are, without a doubt, the easiest to use. A non-contact tester lets you check for voltage in devices and wires without having to touch any parts or wires. This device comes with a small tip at the end that senses voltage such things such as electrical wiring, circuit breakers, outlets, lamp cords, light sockets, and switches. You can read the voltage by merely sticking the tip to an outlet or even touching the outside of electrical and wire cables. This device is powered by a battery and informs you of the voltage with a red light at the tip as well as a buzzing sound.

Non-Contact Voltage Testers

Neon Voltage Testers

Neon voltage testers, also called neon circuit testers, are extremely simple to use. They come with a small body with a neon light inside, and two-wire leads with metal probes on each of the ends. It tells you only whether a voltage is present or not. Unlike the non-contact voltage tester, this requires you to touch the circuit wires, screw terminals, or outlet slots with the wire probes. This is an easy tool to use, but it should be handled with caution.

Plug-In Circuit Analyzers

Plug-in circuit analyzers are cheap and easy to use testers that tell you about the functions of an electrical circuit when you plug it into an outlet. The testers are intended to test ordinary electrical outlets, but only grounded outlets that have three slots. Older two-slot outlets cannot be verified with the testers because no ground wire is connected to these outlets.

Continuity Testers

A continuity tester is a tool that is powered by batteries. It has a probe at one end and a cord with either another probe at the other end or an alligator clip. Continuity testers are great for checking to see if something like a single-pole switch is working correctly.

Multimeters

Multimeters are one of the most versatile of all the electrical testers. They are capable of many different functions. Most multimeters provide precise readings of AC and DC voltage, resistance, continuity, frequency and capacitance. If you learn how to use it well, it can provide all the information offered by all other testers.

Solenoid Voltage Tester

Solenoid voltage testers, also known in the trade by the nickname “wiggies,” are also multi-function testers. Still, they are somewhat simpler and easier to use than the battery-operated multimeters. Both analog and digital models are available. Solenoid voltmeters are capable of testing for both voltage and polarity.

Digital Clamp Meter

Digital Clamp Meter

A digital clamp meter is a tool typically used only by professionals. It combines the functions of a multimeter with a current sensor. However, it is a little more expensive than a multimeter. The most apparent difference between a multimeter and a digital clamp meter is that this tool features clamping jaws that can comfortably grip wire conductors. This makes the device somewhat safer and easier to use.

Wand Voltage Meter

A wand voltage meter is another speciality tester usually owned only by professional electricians. This is a digital voltage tester that works in two ways. The tool includes wire leads which can be used to measure voltage or continuity by touching the edges to metal contacts or bare wires. Moreover, the tool also has electrostatic wands that can detect and measure voltage by merely holding them in proximity to wires or metal contacts.

 

Thermometer

Best Thermometer Buying Guide

Having a good thermometer that provides precise readings is vital. However, with so many types of thermometers in the market, it can be challenging to know which to select. To help you choose the best thermometer based on your needs, we have brought you a buying guide.

Types

Newer options have replaced the mercury thermometers you may have grown up with Two of the most common ones are digital stick and infrared thermometers.

Infrared Thermometers –

Infrared Thermometers

Infrared thermometers measure the temperature by the heat emitted by the body. Some of them can be difficult to position, but their digital readout takes just about 2 to 3 seconds. But these thermometers are also extremely expensive. These thermometers are quick and easy to use.

Get Rid of Mercury

Glass thermometers with mercury have primarily been replaced by digital thermometers that do not contain the potentially dangerous metal, mercury. Mercury exposure can cause critical health problems if the thermometer breaks. So if you are still holding onto a glass thermometer containing mercury, we advise you to get rid of it.

Get Rid of Mercury

Digital Stick Thermometers-

 A digital stick thermometer is the most widely sold and cheapest type. Look for one with an LCD that is easy to read and a start button that is easy to press. Most thermometers have an audible beep indicating that the reading is complete. This means that you won’t have to check your watch every few seconds. Digital thermometers use batteries to function.

Shopping Tips

Here is what to consider before you buy.

  • Response Time – A reading from a digital thermometer may require up to 60-80 seconds, based on the model. Infrared thermometer readings take just 1 to 3 seconds, but may not be more accurate than a cheap digital stick thermometer.
  • Safety– Some models come with protective cover cases and other accessories that may pose as a choking hazard for kids. If the model that you choose to buy includes small parts, make sure you keep them out of the hands of unsupervised children.
  • Extras– If you are purchasing an inexpensive digital stick thermometer, consider buying two. Use one to take oral temperatures and the other to take rectal temperatures. That way, you will not have to worry about keeping disposable thermometer covers on hand. Label each one of them with a permanent marker based on its particular use.
