Six key benefits set tabletop advertising a part from other forms of advertising: 1. Exposure and Absorption We catch people during the most relaxed time of the day – mealtime. Restaurant patrons will have your message 18’’ from their faces for 15 to 30 minutes, absorbing it consciously as well as subconsciously.
2. Word-of-Mouth It has always been one of the most effective methods of advertising, and we make it happen. How many people talk about your business now? We’ll bet you’ve sat at a restaurant table waiting for the staff and read the ketchup bottle or the sugar packets. We give restaurant patrons something much more interesting to read. They read about your business. People rarely go to restaurants alone, so while they read your ad, they talk about it among themselves as well. Table Top advertising has proven effective in creating word-of-mouth.
3. Permanent Image Most methods of advertising subconsciously work against a permanent image. A 30-second spot, daily newspaper…these do not sound permanent. When you look at one of our tables, it is solid, high-quality, and permanent, which are three things you definitely want to say about your business, and table top advertising says it!
4. Repetition Large companies will tell you what made them as big as they are today…repetition, repetition, repetition. Restaurant patrons will see your ad consciously several times in the 15 to 30 minutes they are there. But it doesn’t stop there! If they like the food, they will be back sitting in front of your ad many times over the next 2-3 years that our tables are in place.
5. Low Cost We can do the job for less than 10 cents on the dollar compared to any other professional ad medium.

Insurance fraud occurs when any act is committed with the intent to fraudulently obtain some benefit or advantage to which they are not otherwise entitled or someone knowingly denies some benefit that is due and to which someone is entitled, also known as a Krut. False insurance claims are insurance claims filed with the intent to defraud an insurance provider. Insurance fraud has existed ever since the beginning of insurance as a commercial enterprise. Fraudulent claims account for a significant portion of all claims received by insurers, and cost billions of dollars annually. Types of insurance fraud are very diverse, and occur in all areas of insurance. Insurance crimes also range in severity, from slightly exaggerating claims to deliberately causing accidents or damage. Fraudulent activities also affect the lives of innocent people, both directly through accidental or purposeful injury or damage, and indirectly as these crimes cause insurance premiums to be higher. Insurance fraud poses a very significant problem, and governments and other organizations are making efforts to deter such activities
The “chief motive in all insurance crimes is financial profit.” Insurance contracts provide both the insured and the insurer with opportunities for exploitation. According to the Coalition Against Insurance Fraud, the causes vary, but are usually centered on greed and holes in the fraud fight. Often, those who commit insurance fraud view it as a low-risk, lucrative enterprise. Drug dealers who have entered insurance fraud  think it’s safer and more profitable than working street corners. Compared to other crimes, court sentences for insurance fraud can be lenient, so scammers may try to take advantage of the system. Though insurers try to fight fraud, some will pay suspicious claims, since settling such claims is often cheaper than legal action. Another reason that this opportunity arises is in the case of over-insurance, when the amount insured is greater than the actual value of the property insured. This condition can be very difficult to avoid, especially since an insurance provider might sometimes encourage it in order to obtain greater profits. This allows fraudsters to make profits by destroying their property because the payment they receive from their insurers is of greater value than the property they destroy. Insurance companies are also susceptible to fraud because false insurance claims can be made to appear like ordinary claims. This allows fraudsters to file claims for damages that never occurred, and so obtain payment with little or no initial cost. The most common form of insurance fraud is inflating of loss.

Laser Hair Removal Stories
I have had very strong hair in unwanted places on my legs and on the bikini zone. At age of 13 I started to shave my legs. As the years went by, I got more dark hair on my bikini zone, they were so dark and so strong, I felt so desperate and helpless to change anything – it was a disaster!!! They were so dark that’s why they were seen – I have forgotten about sunbathing and spending time by the sea. I felt ashamed about all the times I forgot to take care of the hair. I was afraid that someone would notice my problem. At age of 15 I went to the family doctor and asked to do a research, to find out what is going on with my organism. It took me a week to do all the tests – doctor told me that I had too much male hormones and added that it is heritable. At that time I was emotionally unstable. I even felt in depression…Somehow I face the problem of mine and understood that I had one choice – to eliminate those awful hair by using common techniques. I also had an issue with leg hair and tried leg waxing mulitple times, and with terrible results. The wax was hot, and the ripping was painful. I even tried a sugar wax.
Laser hair removal
When I was 18 years old I started to use waxing (permanenthairremovaltip.com/leg-waxing/), it helped, really! But only for several weeks. I was so tired of trying to rid off unwanted hair. I have been doing waxing procedures for several years. When I was 22 (2003) the best friend of mine suggested me to try the hair laser removal. I thought why not! I tried so many techniques why not trying one more. It was the last hope for me to eliminate the hair. That’s why I resolved to undergo this procedure. But…I could not afford it…I started to doubt and decided not to do the hair laser removal. In a half a year I changed my mind. I went to the bank and took a loan. The first step was done.
Then I found the beauty centre where such procedures were performed and book a consultation. Firstly, I felt myself little bit unusual, but when the doctor came in and smiled to me I calm down. It was very nice talk in a very cozy cabinet. She explained me how the whole procedure would go (the beam of laser light is sent to a group of hair follicles with enough power to destroy the root, but not enough power to harm the surrounding skin. The surrounding skin is cooled with a gel, a spray, etc.). Then she asked to show problematic places for evaluating the level of the problem. After the consultation she told me to set the date of the procedure. The treatment time began in the end of august. I had 4-8 sessions to achieve permanent hair reduction. The doctor told me that the leg area isn’t so sensitive like other areas of the body. It means that the process of hair removal won’t make me feel uncomfortable. Also she promised me that I will never again face such problem as hair shaving or painful waxing procedure (permanenthairremovaltip.com/sugar-wax/)
Laser hair removal results
I was so satisfied with the results that I decided to repeat the procedure, but for this time I wanted to eliminate the unwanted hair from the bikini line. I choose the same centre and the same doctor, because I trusted her. She explained me that bikini line hair laser removal may be more problematic. Naturally I asked “why?” she told me that the skin of this area prone to irritation and ingrowths hair and I remembered that I really had a problem with ingrowths hair. It was very painful!!! Furthermore the area of the bikini line is extremely sensitive, that’s why procedure could be more painful as usually, but my doctor assure me that she would deal with this problem giving me mild anesthetic and added that I would go through 4-6 treatments to reach the results. Generally the removal process is safe. Of course there can be side effects such as pinkness or redness to the skin on the treated area, but it’s natural.
Personally I had the redness on the bikini line for six days, but then it has gone. My doctor warned me that sometimes it may take a few days for the normal skin color to appear. Hair laser removal procedure is almost painful. I felt like someone was pinching my skin. In the end of treatment the hair has disappeared – I was extremely happy, like ahahahahahahah!!! Finally it happened!!! Telling the truth after the second treatment I noticed an amazing difference. …I used to shave my legs and bikini line every single day. It has now been two years since the last time I shaved. I followed all the recommendations. For instance did not take sunbathing for five weeks, I did not swim in the swimming pool.
I am so happy and so glad, because I have smooth skin everywhere! And I don’t regret choosing the hair laser removal. It cost me a lot of money, but it doesn’t matter, the most important thing to me to have beautiful skin!!
