CD-R King PU401 USB Gamepad

CD-R King has been known here in the Philippines as one of the most illustrious hardware and gadgets shop. From USB players, adapters and connectors, to speakers and PC peripherals, they must have one of the widest collections available. And among these gadgets are gaming accessories may it be for the PC or for a gaming console. The CD-R King PU401 USB Gamepad is probably the favorite among the PC gamepads and let me show you the reasons why.
First of all, the gamepad is for USB connections only and is designed to be used on the PC alone. But don’t worry about connecting it to your PC for the first time as it is very easy to set up. Just plug it in and play it. It comes with its own drivers and can easily be set up using the game controller section of your control panel.

Looking at it for the first time, you’ll immediately think of the Playstation 2 controller which is probably among the best game controllers. And the PU401 controller is a shy away from the ergonomic design of the Playstation 2 controller. It has the directional pad, 2 analog sticks, the 4 main action buttons upfront on the right side, and 4 wing buttons. It also has vibration function for more interactive gaming. If you’re familiar with the PS2 controller, the PU401 gamepad won’t be a stranger to you. We think anyone that knows about will understand the PU401.

Just think of it as the Triangle, Square, Circle, X buttons and the L1, L2, L3, and L4 buttons. You can also press the analog sticks for L3 and R3. Also, the cable is quite long so you can have room to tangle the wire among your other PC peripherals if needed and still have some room to spare.

One major concern for gamers is the response time of the controller. Will it respond quickly to your button presses? This gamepad is no exception. It responds to your commands very quickly and buttons presses will be directed to your PC and your games with great accuracy. Even the analog sticks are accurate when you slightly tilt them at any direction. But of course, it will also depend on the software or game that you are using. Overall, it won’t disappoint when it comes to actual gaming performance. You’ll definitely have a smooth gameplay.

As for the price, it’s priced at a measly $4.50 or so (200 Pesos) so that’s definitely a bang for the buck. And as for its durability, it’s quite stable and doesn’t get loose after long term use.

Overall, the CD-R King PU401 Gamepad is a very good controller at its price. Durable, dependable, and quite comfortable, this gamepad will give you a very good gaming experience. True enough, it may not have extra features like turbo buttons and a more advanced rumble function like branded controllers, but as a basic controller, it’s definitely a top pick.

Avoiding an Accident

Avoiding an Accident

If you are confronted by an aggressive driver, the NHTSA recommends that you take the following actions:

  • Get out of the way: first and foremost, make every attempt to get out of his or her way.
  • Put your pride aside: do not challenge the aggressive driver by speeding up or attempting to hold-your-own in your travel lane.
  • Avoid eye contact: eye contact can sometimes enrage an aggressive driver.
  • Avoid gestures: ignore gestures and refuse to return them.
  • Report serious aggressive driving: you or a passenger may call the police, but, if you use a cell phone, pull over to a safe location.

Drunk Driving

Every 30 minutes, someone in this country dies in an alcohol-related crash. Last year alone, over one million people were injured in alcohol-related traffic crashes. In a lawsuit arising from a drunk driving accident, in addition to the intoxicated driver being held liable for the injuries he or she caused, a bar or social host may be liable for damages if they served an obviously intoxicated guest, who then drove and caused an accident. The fact that the person who served the intoxicated driver alcohol may be held liable does not relieve the intoxicated driver of liability, however. Experienced personal injury attorneys are aware of the many laws governing legal responsibility and can help you identify who might be held responsible for your injuries, including people or businesses you may not have considered.

Accidents that are Not Caused by the Drivers Involved

In certain cases, accidents are caused by factors unrelated to the conduct of any particular driver. For example, an automobile accident may occur due to a defect in someone’s automobile. In such a case, an automobile manufacturer or supplier may be responsible for injuries caused by a defect in the automobile under the law of product liability. A product liability suit is a lawsuit brought against the seller of a product for selling a defective product that caused physical injury to a consumer or user. If a manufacturer of a product creates a defective product-either in designing, manufacturing, or labeling the product-the manufacturer is liable for any injuries the product causes, regardless of whether the manufacturer was negligent.

Another example of a situation where a driver may not be at fault for an accident is where a mechanic fails to properly repair a vehicle, and the failure causes an accident. In such a case, the person who improperly repaired the automobile, and his employer, may be liable for the injuries sustained under the theory of negligence.

Other factors, such as poorly maintained roads and malfunctioning traffic control signals can contribute to cause an accident as well. Improper design, maintenance, construction, signage, lighting or other highway defects, including poorly placed trees and utility poles, can also cause serious accidents. In cases such as this, government entities may be potential defendants. Special rules apply to claims and lawsuits brought against governmental bodies, however, and good legal advice is critical to preserving and winning such claims.


In all of the above cases, it is essential that accident victims take prompt measures to preserve evidence, investigate the accident in question, and have physicians or other expert witnesses thoroughly evaluate any injuries. If you have been a victim of an automobile accident, do not hesitate to call upon personal injury attorneys who are skilled and experienced in motor vehicle accident cases to assess your situation and determine the best methods for you to obtain any compensation available for the damages you suffered.

Beard Vehicle Accidents – An Overview

Cases arising out of automobile accidents are by far the most common type of personal injury case pending in our court system today. This is not surprising, given that every 10 seconds, someone in the United States is involved in a car accident, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Except in those states where legislation eliminating fault as an issue has been passed (no-fault laws), these cases are typically governed by the law of negligence. Generally, people who operate automobiles must exercise “reasonable care under the circumstances.” A failure to use reasonable care is considered negligence. A person who negligently operates a vehicle may be required to pay for any damages, either to a person or property, caused by his or her negligence. The injured party, known as the plaintiff, is required to prove that the defendant was negligent, that the negligence was a proximate caused of the accident, and that the accident caused the plaintiff’s injuries. If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident, you must not hesitate to seek legal counsel from a personal injury attorney experienced in automobile accident cases in order to best protect your interests.


As with other types of accidents, figuring out who is at fault in a traffic accident is a matter of deciding who was negligent. In many cases, your instincts will tell you that a driver, cyclist or pedestrian acted carelessly, but not what rule or rules that person violated. Fault issues can be complicated, and an experienced attorney will look to a number of sources, such as police reports, state traffic laws, and witnesses, to help you determine who was at fault for your accident.

Courts look to a number of factors in determining whether a driver was negligent. Some of these factors include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • disobeying traffic signs or signals;
  • failing to signal while turning;
  • driving above or below the posted speed limit;
  • disregarding weather or traffic conditions;
  • failing to drive on the right side of the road; and
  • driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Causes of Automobile Accidents

A driver may also be liable for an accident due to his or her intentional or reckless conduct. A driver who is reckless is one who drives unsafely, with “willful and wanton disregard” for the probability that such driving may cause an accident. A driver could be found reckless, for example, if he or she drives in a threatening or harassing manner out of “road rage” and causes an accident. (Criminal charges will also stem from such behavior). Road rage is defined as “an assault with a motor vehicle or other dangerous weapon by the operator or passenger(s) of another motor vehicle or an assault precipitated by an incident that occurred on a roadway.”

Statistics compiled in 1997 by NHTSA and the American Automobile Association showed that almost 13,000 people had been injured or killed since 1990 in crashes caused by aggressive driving. According to a NHTSA survey, more than 60 percent of drivers consider unsafe driving by others, including speeding, a major personal threat to themselves and their families. About 30 percent of respondents said they felt their safety was threatened in the last month, while 67 percent felt this threat during the last year.

Traffic safety and law enforcement organizations are renewing efforts to identify and penalize aggressive drivers-those who speed, tailgate, zip from lane to lane, flash headlights in frustration, and engage in other dangerous driving practices. The NHTSA defines aggressive driving as a progression of unlawful driving actions such as:

  • speeding-exceeding the posted limit or driving too fast for conditions;
  • improper or excessive lane changing;
  • failing to signal intent;
  • failing to see that movement can be made safely; or
  • improper passing-failing to signal intent, using an emergency lane to pass, or passing on the shoulder.

Beard rules

“You can (have a beard) anywhere else,” Sherwin said. “It’s totally normal for a dude to have a beard. You come here and it’s, ‘Aw . . . bad.’ ”

Whiskers are a no-no at the school, owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, except for medical or religious reasons. Frequent shaving nicks and cuts don’t qualify as an exception. Nor does pointing out that Brigham Young himself wore a bushy beard.

Men are expected to be clean-shaven, according to the university’s dressing and grooming standards.

Finding a hairy face on campus isn’t easy. Mustaches, which are allowed if trimmed above the corners of the mouth, are uncommon. Beards are downright scarce.

“You don’t see too many,” said Honor Code Office director Steve Baker. He estimates there are 20 to 45 students a year legitimately sporting beards.
Though he doesn’t keep track, Baker has some idea of the number because his office issues what is called a “beard card.” A request for a medical waiver, for example, must be accompanied by a doctor’s note explaining the condition. If it’s granted, the student has his college ID photo taken wearing whiskers, hence a beard card.

And it must be a full, well-trimmed beard. Goatees aren’t allowed.

Sherwin, who had bad acne in high school, spent his first year at BYU clean-shaven and, due to medication, dry-skinned. He didn’t know he could let his face sprout. The Honor Code does not mention exceptions.

It wasn’t until Sherwin, 23, returned from a mission that he learned through a dermatologist that there are exceptions to the rule. The doctor jotted him a note on a prescription pad.

Sherwin, who works at the Harold B. Lee Library information desk, has had facial hair ever since. “I’m a psychology major, so the beard fits nicely.”

Having started shaving at age 13, he clearly enjoys his standout status.

“I love having a beard,” he said. “I have a real thick beard so it hurts quite a bit to shave. And the ladies like it.”

But sometimes others on campus don’t like it. Professors and administrators, he said, don’t pay much heed, but peers look at him sideways.

“I get crazy looks from students,” he said. “I want to say it’s almost a negative reaction, like, ‘What’s going on with that guy?’ ”

When Sherwin moved to a new apartment, some of his neighbors figured him for a student at nearby Utah Valley State College or someone who worked full time.

Sherwin’s friend Jared Green, 21, says people are just jealous, himself included. He said he would grow a beard if he could. He’d settle for a “scruff” card.

“It is sweet,” he said of Sherwin’s fuzzy face. “There’s no denying its sweetness.”

The university testing center, where exams for many classes are administered, doesn’t find it so sweet. It usually “cards” Sherwin. It has the right as do other services on campus to turn away students whose appearance defies the Honor Code. A sign in the library reads: “Thank you for observing the Honor Code so that we might serve you.” Similar signs are posted throughout the university.

Baker doesn’t know exactly when beards were banned at BYU. The Honor Code dates to 1949. But facial hair likely didn’t become an issue until the 1960s when men starting letting their hair down – and out.

A university committee in the early 1990s reviewed the dress and grooming standards but didn’t make any substantive changes. Baker doesn’t foresee BYU’s Board of Trustees making any changes in the future.

Meaning Sherwin will continue to be part of BYU’s facial minority.

Beard Care

Jojoba Oil: Literally a beards best friend and any beard oil without jojoba oil isn’t much of a beard oil. Jojoba oil will help keep your beard soft, healthy and manageable. It’s awesome for beards because of its ability to strengthen and moisturize facial hair. Because it is nontoxic and non-allergenic, Jojoba oil does not leave behind a greasy build up so you can use it on a daily basis. It actually strengthens and enhances your beard’s natural oils and decreases the chance of breakage.

Olive Oil: Rich in vitamins A, E and antioxidants, olive oil helps protect the keratin in hair and seals in moisture. If you deal with brittle or a frizzy beard that feel more like steel wool, olive oil can help soften your beard, making it more pliable. A natural, deep conditioning treatment of olive oil each week can replace the extra silicone ingredients used in conditioners that give your beard a false feeling of softness of for a few hours.

Shea Butter: If you’re dry, irritated or flaky, shea butter may provide critical moisture and help to heal a variety of skin conditions. Healthy skin is essential to maximize hair growth. Shea butter can also be applied to the hair to moisturize the individual strands, reducing dryness and breakage. Reduced breakage will result in longer and healthier hair over time. More info can be found at dapper beard, for electric shaver reviews.

Sweet Almond Oil: The sweetest and one of our most important carrier oils! Although sweet almond oil is just one ingredient in a high quality beard oil, it’s a pretty important one to Beard Theory. Sweet almond oil moisturizes and nourishes hair, improving the appearance of beards. Sweet almond oil also has the ability to soften hair, a real bonus for the wives and girlfriends of guys with wiry, scratchy beards. A beard oil that contains sweet almond oil will make a noticeable difference in the softness and shine of your beard. Sweet Almond Oil conditions your beard like a pro and is also known to help with dandruff.

Forums Are Back Up


Over the past several months the MBMC forums were spammed with spam-bots on a daily basis. I was receiving an average of 400 spam-bot registrations per day. This made it impossible for me discern real accounts from spam accounts and thus the forums were essentially down. I have integrated a new tool that will now prevent bots from registering. Hopefully the forum activity will resume accordingly. Thank you for your patience while I figured out a way to get this issue resolved

Beard oils

We take pride in our craftsmanship and the fact that we’ve brewed up some kickass beard care products. We hand make all natural premium beard care products ranging from beard oil, beard balm and beard shampoo. Everything is made to order to assure the freshest products possible. Below you will find information on all of our ingredients and why they are awesome for your beard.

Avocado Oil: Known as the green, mean beard machine! Avocado is high in amino acids and proteins, which work towards reducing inflammation, nourishing the hair, in return reducing dryness and the associated itch. Avocados restore the natural pH levels in the skin, which is great for healing and restoring moisture and balance. A healthy beard starts with healthy skin, as it is the core foundation of a healthy beard.

Beeswax: Beeswax not only moisturizes and keeps your beard tamed, it also keeps moisture from getting out of the hair. Moisture and ease of styling isn’t all beeswax has to offer your beard, however. Beeswax is used to naturally stimulate hair growth.

Coconut Oil: Coconut oil is a blessing for beards and is extremely effective for all beard types. Coconut oil stimulates hair growth getting deep into its follicles. Coconut oil moisturizes dry beards. Coconut oil adds luster, shine and softness to the hair.

Grapeseed Oil: Grape seed oil contains Vitamin E, an antioxidant that helps to build tissue, and lineolic acid, a fatty acid which promotes hair and skin growth. If your hair is brittle or weak, treating it with grape seed oil can help to restore its strength and shine. It’s ideal for moisturizing and conditioning dry hair because it is lighter than olive oil or coconut oil and won’t leave your hair feeling greasy. Grape seed oil helps to lock in moisture and prevent frizz, split ends, and brittle hair.

Hemp Oil: This oil is rich in essential fatty acids, along with vitamins and protein. Hemp oil is good for people with all hair and skin types.  Hemp oil has vitamin E, along with a high essential fatty acid content. Fatty acids provide emollient action, meaning they prevent water loss and have a softening effect. Hemp oil also helps to enhance the growth of hair on the scalp in a number of ways. Among these is through the Omega3, Omega6 and Omega9 fatty acids, which are necessary in stimulating growth.

I’ve had a beard since I was in high school. I was that lucky guy who could grow facial hair at an early age. I’ve never been one of those guys that enjoys shaving. It always left my face irritated and made me uncomfortable for a few days until I grew a stubble back.

For me, waking up in the morning and washing my beard, brushing it and applying beard oil is relaxing. I find joy in taking care of my beard, keeping it maintained and looking good (leave the shaving to the women, grow yourself a manly beard).

I graduated college with a degree in Computer Science and worked jobs as a Web Developer, IT Analyst and Computer Technician. I’ve never enjoyed working a regular a desk job, I’ve always had bigger plans. I like to make my own schedule and work on what I’m passionate about. I consider myself hardworking, adventurous, and an entrepreneur.

In the past many people have associated beards with only a certain group of people. My brand is here to embrace the fact that beards aren’t just for a certain group of people, they are a way of life.

I’ve spent countless hours developing all natural beard care products that finally gives your beard the attention it needs. I didn’t just slap a few ingredients together and call it “ beard care”. I’ve studied facial hair and men’s skincare in order to build the best beard care items money can buy. Beard Theory focuses on making beard’s soft, keeping them well groomed and smelling good. Our products work on preventing beards from itching, keeping them clean and presentable.

We are located in beautiful Anderson, South Carolina and everything is currently hand made by myself. Our products are put through a four week testing process on my own beard until I’m completely satisfied with the results. After the testing phase is finished, I will release it for sale to the public.

Men should be proud of their beards and Beard Theory loves that! Having a beard is a way of expressing yourself and looking more like a man. If you take care of your beard, it will take care of you. We are here to help you do that.

What is Beard Oil?

Our beard oil is a blend of all natural carrier oils and essential oils that are used to moisturize the skin underneath the beard in order to keep it soft, shiny, and smooth. It also acts a styling agent to keep your beard well groomed.

What is Beard Balm?

Our beard balm is a styling and shaping aid as well as a leave in beard conditioner. A good beard balm should moisturize your facial hair, provide hold for styling and make your beard look thicker.

Why use Beard Shampoo over regular Shampoo?

If you are using a regular over the counter shampoo for your beard, you’ve been making a crucial mistake. Normal shampoo that’s not specifically crafted for a beard isn’t suppose to be used on your beard, since facial hair and the hair on your head are very different. “Normal” shampoo has chemicals that can strip the natural oils from your beard. This leads to a dry, coarse and brittle beard.
