What is as an antidote to loneliness

I was called to your room in the middle of an overnight shift. There you were, breathing quickly, neck veins bulging and oxygen levels hovering despite the mask on your face. I placed my stethoscope on your back and listened to the cacophony of air struggling to make its way through your worsening pneumonia.
“We’re going to place a tube down your throat to help you breathe,” I told you.
Your eyes were pleading, scared. “We’ll put you to sleep. It’ll help you breathe more comfortably. Okay?”
You nodded. You had already told the doctors who cared for you during the day that if your breathing worsened, you would agree to intubation to allow more time to treat your pneumonia. So I called for the anesthesiologists. Minutes later, you were sedated and intubated, silenced — maybe forever.
I thought about you recently, when I read a poignant Perspective in JAMA Internal Medicine: “Saving a Death When We Cannot Save a Life in the Intensive Care Unit.” In this piece, critical care doctor Michael Wilson relates the story of a woman in the ICU who was electively intubated for a procedure and then died, without ever having had the opportunity for her loved ones to say goodbye.
Fueled by his feelings of regret over this and similar cases, Wilson argues for a different approach to intubation, which he likens to the talk a parent has with a child who is going off to war. Of course, these parents hope their children will come back safely, but they are given the chance to say what they want to say — knowing the conversation might be their last. Wilson suggests that we might build a similar pause into our protocols before intubation, lest we unwittingly deprive our patients of the opportunity for a final exchange with their loved ones. “Stealing the opportunity for meaningful last words is precisely the kind of avoidable complication that ought to be visible to us in the ICU,” Wilson writes. “My intubation checklist now includes this step.” In doing so, Wilson suggests that we might be able to “save a death” even if we are ultimately unable to save a life.
Reading this piece, I’m left with the image of Wilson’s patients — both the one who never had the chance to say goodbye, and another woman he describes who was given the chance to say “I love you” to her husband — and also of my own patients. It is too easy, in the heat of the moment, to forget that this patient before us is a person. How many times have I decided on intubation, ordered the appropriate medications, prepared for complications, but not taken pause to allow my patient to talk to a loved one?
I only took care of you for the night, as the physician on call. Though I remember your face, I do not remember your name and I don’t know what happened to you. Maybe the breathing tube came out in a day or two, and you were able to talk to your family once again. Or maybe it did not. Maybe your pneumonia worsened and you died, there in our ICU. It has been months since that night, and I can’t know. But I do wish, now, that I had paused and given you that chance.

Well, it seems as though not even a week can go by without more data on aspirin! I recently reviewed the ARRIVE trial and the implications for primary prevention — that is, trying to prevent heart attacks and strokes in otherwise healthy people. Since then, yet another large clinical trial — the ASPREE study — has come out questioning the use of aspirin in primary prevention. Three articles pertaining to this trial were published in the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine, which is an unusual degree of coverage for one trial and highlights its immediate relevance to clinical practice.

Aspirin still strongly indicated for secondary prevention

Nothing about any of the new aspirin data, including ASPREE, pertains to secondary prevention, which refers to use of aspirin in patients with established cardiovascular disease. Examples include a prior heart attack or certain types of stroke, previous stents or bypass surgery, and symptomatic angina or peripheral artery disease. In general, in patients with a history of these conditions, the benefits of aspirin in reducing cardiovascular problems outweigh the risks. Chief among these is a very small risk of bleeding in the brain, and a small risk of life-threatening bleeding from the stomach.

ASPREE study suggests no benefit from aspirin in primary prevention

ASPREE randomized 19,114 healthy people 70 or over (65 or over for African Americans and Hispanics) to receive either 100 milligrams of enteric-coated aspirin or placebo. After an average of almost five years, there was no significant difference in the rate of fatal coronary heart disease, heart attack, stroke, or hospitalization for heart failure. There was a significant 38% increase in major bleeding with aspirin, though the actual rates were low. The serious bleeding included bleeding into the head, which can lead to death or disability. Again, the actual rates were very low, but they are still a concern when thinking of the millions of patients to whom the ASPREE results apply.
Rates of dementia were also examined, and again, there was no benefit of aspirin. Quite unexpectedly, there was a significantly higher rate of death in the patients taking aspirin. This had not been seen in prior primary prevention trials of aspirin, so this isolated finding needs to be viewed cautiously. Still, with no benefits, increased bleeding, and higher mortality, at least in this population of older healthy people, aspirin should no longer be routinely recommended.
Another unexpected finding in ASPREE was a significantly higher rate of cancer-related death in the people randomized to aspirin. The prior thinking had been that aspirin might actually prevent colon cancer, though generally after many more years of being on aspirin. The ASPREE trial was terminated early due to lack of any apparent benefits. And even though five years is a relatively long period of follow-up, it may not have been long enough to find a benefit on cancer. Thus, the increase in cancer deaths may be a false finding. Nevertheless, the overall picture from this trial is not a compelling one for aspirin use for prevention of either cardiac or cancer deaths.

Should healthy people take a daily aspirin?

In general, the answer seems to be no — at least not without first consulting your physician. Despite being available over the counter and very inexpensive, aspirin can cause serious side effects, including bleeding. This risk goes up with age. So, even though it seems like a trivial decision, if you are healthy with no history of cardiovascular problems, don’t just start taking aspirin on your own.
However, there are likely select healthy patients who have a very high risk of heart attack based on current smoking, family history of premature heart attacks, or very elevated cholesterol with intolerance to statins, for example, who might benefit. Therefore, the decision to start aspirin should involve a detailed discussion with your physician as part of an overall strategy to reduce cardiovascular risk. If you are already taking aspirin for primary prevention, it would be a good idea to meet with your physician and see if you might be better off stopping.

It may not seem possible to be able to write your way to better health. But as a doctor, a public health practitioner, and a poet myself, I know what the scientific data have to say about this: when people write about what’s in their hearts and minds, they feel better and get healthier. And it isn’t just that they’re getting their troubles off their chests.
Writing provides a rewarding means of exploring and expressing feelings. It allows you to make sense of yourself and the world you are experiencing. Having a deeper understanding of how you think and feel — that self-knowledge — provides you with a stronger connection to yourself. It’s that connection that often allows you to move past negative emotions (like guilt and shame) and instead access positive ones (like optimism or empathy), fostering a sense of connection to others in addition to oneself.

Making connections is key

It’s remarkable that the sense of connection to others that one can feel when writing expressively can occur even when people are not engaged directly. Think of being at a movie or concert and experiencing something dramatic or uplifting. Just knowing that everyone else at the theater is sharing an experience can make you feel connected to them, even if you never talk about it. Expressive writing can have the same connecting effect, as you write about things that you recognize others may also be experiencing, even if those experiences differ. And if you share your writing, you can enhance your connection to someone else even more. That benefit is energizing, life-enhancing, and even lifesaving in a world where loneliness — and the ill health it can lead to — has become an epidemic.
Maybe it’s time to pay greater attention to expressive writing as one important way to enhance a sense of connection to others. Social connection is crucial to human development, health, and survival, but current research suggests that social connection is largely ignored as a health determinant. We ignore that relationship at our peril, since emerging medical research indicates that a lack of social connections can have a profound influence on risk for mortality, and is associated with up to a 30% risk for early death — as lethal as smoking 15 cigarettes a day. Social isolation and loneliness can have additional long-term effects on your health including impaired immune function and increased inflammation, promoting arthritis, type 2 diabetes, cancer, and heart disease.

How expressive writing battles loneliness

Picking up a pen can be a powerful intervention against loneliness. I am a strong believer in writing as a way for people who are feeling lonely and isolated to define, shape, and exchange their personal stories. Expressive writing, especially when shared, helps foster social connections. It can reduce the burden of loneliness among the many groups who are most at risk, including older adults, caregivers, those with major illnesses, those with disabilities, veterans, young adults, minority communities of all sorts, and immigrants and refugees.
Writing helps us to operate in the past, present, and future all at once. When you put pen to paper you are operating in the present moment, even while your brain is actively making sense of the recalled past, choosing and shaping words and lines. But the brain also is operating in the future, as it pictures a person reading the very words you are actively writing. When expressing themselves in writing, people are actually creating an artifact — a symbol of some of their thoughts and feelings. People often can write what they find difficult to speak, and so they explore deeper truths. This process of expression through the written word can build trust and bonds with others in unthreatening ways, forging a path toward a more aware and connected life.
When people tell their personal stories through writing, whether in letters to friends or family, or in journals for themselves, or in online blog posts, or in conventionally published work, they often discover a means of organizing and understanding their own thoughts and experiences. Writing helps demystify the unknown and reduce fears, especially when we share those written concerns with others.

Write for your health

As a poet, I’ve personally experienced the benefits of expressive writing. The skills it sharpens; the experience of sharing ideas, feelings, and perceptions on a page; the sensations of intellectual stimulus and emotional relief — all are life enhancing. I’d like more people to discover that expressive writing can contribute to well-being, just as exercise and healthful eating do.
I’ve documented some of the research being done in the area of healing and the arts. After reviewing more than 100 studies, we concluded that creative expression improves health by lowering depression and stress while boosting healthy emotions. So pick up a pen, and start to write creatively. For the mind and the body, writing is a strong prescription for good health.

School Lockers Are Important For Your School Environment

If there are no proper storage facilities for the students, it can be extremely difficult for them to manage their belongings in the best possible way. They may frequently need to carry all of their belongings from one classroom to another, making things very tedious and tiresome for them. However, having well designed locker components makes it a lot easier for the students to manage their belongings and focus on their task at hand.

Apart from making it more convenient for the students to carry their books and other items, the storage compartments also help to keep the school environment neat and clean. Had there been no proper storage solution, the school area would have been messed up by the students who would have needed enough place to keep their goods. Hence the storage devices keep the school environment clean and help in effective management of the available space.

School storage compartments are mainly used in two areas; in the corridors as well as in the gym areas. The storage compartments that are used in the corridors are mainly used for keeping books, art equipments, electronic goods like mobiles and laptops and certain other items. The ones that are kept near the gym area are meant for keeping wet clothes, towels, etc. It is for this reason that the gym storage compartments should be rust and corrosion proof. They should be bacteria and odor proof as well for making sure that no foul smell is emitted from them for keeping wet or used clothes.

When it comes to buying storage units for your own school, you should not always look for the cheaper models as this can make you end up with below standard products. Instead, have a flexible approach when it comes to your budget. While there are numerous different types of storage devices available in the market, the plastic lockers are the ones that are best suited for school usage. It is best not to go for the wooden ones as because wooden ones are prone to decay when exposed to water or moisture.

If you are trying to buy school lockers for your own school environment then online shops are a great place to look for them. While these storage compartments are also available from conventional stores, the online stores are a great place to shop for them if you are on a tight budget. This is so because these online shops frequently offer lucrative discounts and special offers for attracting potential buyers. The rates can get even lower if you are looking to buy the storage compartments on bulk amounts. These shops can also provide you with customized solutions for your specific requirements. One of the most asked questions by migrants moving to Australia is "How do I choose a school for my children?". Not an easy task when you're 10,000 miles away so let's look at some of the things you need to consider.

Private or Public school

This comes down to personal preference and what you can afford. Both my children went through public schools in Western Australia and onto University so for me public schools have been good. Public schools are often very diverse and most draw their main body of students from the local community.

If you go private just beware that some are faith based and follow a religious curriculum with some very old fashioned values, often all girls all boys schools. They do pride themselves on sport and many operate excellent sport programs. They are generally well funded which is something you would expect considering they also receive funding from the government at the expense of public schools. A top private school can command a $30,000 fee per year so make sure you understand the impact the school fees will have on your living expenses.

Not all can afford to send their children to a top private school but don't despair some public schools regularly beat top private schools in the school ranking tables despite the poor funding. You will need to keep in mind though that even public schools are not totally free and top public schools can command fees as much a $2,000 per year for a student in year 12. They may say voluntary contributions but if your child is to participate fully you will be expected to pay so you will need to budget for this.

Cost is one factor that will determine where we send our children to school the other factor is where we live. Most parents have to live near where they work and so this will often dictate what schools are available to you. Just remember though the quality of education is not just about results. According to the ACER (Australian Council for Educational research) chief executive Geoff Masters "The quality of education provided by a school is best judged not by its final results but by the difference it makes, taking into account students' starting points. A school making a large difference 'value adding' to students' levels of achievement and life chances may deliver 'better education', despite its lower Year 12 results." So something to consider rather than just results.

Australia, like the UK, uses a league table system to compare schools. When you use it keep in mind the words of ACER Chief Executive above regarding how schools add value to student education. You can find more information on league tables and compare schools in the area you wish to move to on the myschool.edu.au website. It covers the entire education systems across Australia.

The Myschool website contains quite a large range of information on schools, covering the profile of population of each school of which there is approximately 9,500. The site also lists outcomes of NAPLAN testing performance data, student attendance and school financial figures including capital expenditure and sources of funding. It's a good source of information and you are able to compare literacy and numeracy standards of local schools to state averages. Whilst this may give an indication of current standards it is important to consider achievements in Years 11 and 12. For example: years 7 and 9 NAPLAN tests may show the majority of students in the lower brackets of the test results. The school however has an excellent achievement rate for both ATAR (university students, more on that later) and vocational studies (non ATAR). This would suggest that the school may have an excellent system to bring those struggling students up to speed by the time they leave. A very important point to consider.

For those who are curious NAPLAN stands with the National Assessment Program - literacy and numeracy (NAPLAN) and is an annual assessment of students in years 3, 5, 7 and 9. NAPLAN has been an everyday part of the school calendar since 2008. Assessments are undertaken nationwide every year in the second full week in May. Tests are made up of four areas or domains covering:

• Reading

• Writing

• Language conventions (spelling grammar and punctuation)

• Numeracy

Now to try and explain this ATAR business which is not an easy task I might add. In short an ATAR score is a percentile score given between "less than 30" up to a maximum of 99.95 (in a minimum increment of 0.05). Clear as mud so far I guess. In layman terms it is a score which denotes a student's ranking relative to his or her peers upon completion of their secondary education. This score is used by university and tertiary education programs to rank and select prospective students. In short the higher your ATAR score is the more university courses you have to choose from. Most universities will display minimum ATAR scores for entry to all their courses.

The School system in brief

Australia is made up of a collection of states and territories each has its own government which is responsible for its own education. Because of this there are some differences between states in the way schools operate. There is a national framework however which all schools have to follow to try and ensure some standardisation across the nation. Most states operate similar programs with primary school running from kindergarten through to year six or seven. High schools tend to run from year 7 to 10 and then senior high school runs from year 11 to year 12. The majority of schools cater for the full range from year 7 through to year 12, although there are a few specialist schools that operate just years 7 to 10 or years 11 and 12 in all states. In some states schools that operate for just year 11 and 12 are able to specialise in certain areas becoming Regional Training Organisations (RTO's) allowing students to get involved in pre-apprenticeships.

All states offer their own certification, for example in Western Australia students achieve the Western Australian Certificate of Education at the end of year 12 (WACE). In the Eastern states the Australian Capital Territory students are awarded the ACT Certificate. In New South Wales they offer the Higher School Certificate, in Queensland it's the Queensland Certificate of Education. In Victoria (yes, you've guessed it) it's the Victorian Certificate of Education or the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning. Moving west to South Australia they have the South Australian Certificate of Education and up in the Northern Territory its known as the Northern Territory Certificate Education.

If you are worried you may have to move states as I did rest assured that all Australian schools follow the Australian Qualifications framework (AQF) which has 10 levels and links school, vocational and university education qualifications into one national system. This does allow for some standardisation across the states and allows students to move easily from one level of study to the next, and from one institution to another. For early years there will be some differences but these will be more operational than subject content. For years 11 and 12 it may be more significant especially for university bound students as specialist areas will vary from school to school and state to state. This is also affected by availability of specialist teachers in your chosen subject area.

In my experience I have found UK school children to be slightly in front in terms of their level of education and maturity. This is certainly true in the early years however years 11 and 12 can be extremely intense especially if they have University ambitions.

Consider their in opinions?

Now many will make the assumption that when choosing a high school you should look for the best. That doesn't always hold true as I have seen children go through private education only to drop out due to the pressure of the strict regime and work ethic, it doesn't suit everyone. In our quest to find the best we often forget the feelings of the little guys and girls who will have to attend that institution every day. In short your children's opinions should count as well. Some children are naturally confident and enjoy tough challenges. Others may like a more relaxed less pressured environment.

Find out what your children's preferences are, what special talents do they have, musical, mathematical, science, sport and then find a school nearby that fits their needs. Look for the school that best fits your values and children's needs, not just plum for the best in the areas because that is what other parents are doing. Step back assess what the school has to offer and try to figure out what's best for your children. By doing this your child is likely to be far happier at school and so will you.

School life

The school year across Australia runs from the beginning of February through to the latter part of December. The school year is normally split into two semesters. Each semester consists of two terms each 10 week long (4 in total). At the end of each term students have a two week holiday. Summer holidays start in December and last until the beginning of February. As states look after their own education holidays can sometimes vary from state to state. You can get a full list of the holidays across Australia from http://www.australia.com

Daily school normally starts around about 8.40 am and finishes at 3.00 pm. The day is split into five periods each lasting around 60 minutes with two 20 to 25 minute breaks in between period 2 and 3 and then period 4 and 5. Extracurricular activities normally run from 3 to 4pm. Again school days will vary from state to state and in some schools they operate the split system where lower school students start at around 7am through to about 1pm. Upper school students attend later in the day and finish around about 5pm. This is only a guide and it does vary from school to school and state to state.

Just arrived

There are some who believe that children should start school as soon as you arrive to help them integrate quicker. I think that is a fair comment as it's important to get your children integrated into Australian life as soon as possible. Having said that I feel it's important to give children a little time to recover from their travels and get used to their new surroundings.

Some schools may allow you to preliminarily book your child into the their school before you arrive. Whilst it's nice to know you have a school lined up in my opinion it may be in your best interests to just wait a little longer until you arrive. We gave our children a couple weeks to integrate and take in a little of the enormous change they had experienced in their lives at that point in time. It also gave us chance to visit the schools with the children in a more relaxed manner. I personally would not book my children into school before I had actually visited and checked out what it was like. Furthermore competition for places in the better schools is often tight so they can afford to be a bit choosy about who they pick especially if you live outside the catchment area. They will probably want to interview you and your children before they allow them to enrol.

Researching schools

If you can afford to come out on a reconnaissance visit before you migrate it helps. It's a lovely way to assess areas to live in and schools as you are in a far more relaxed mood. Make sure you draw up an itinerary and a plan of where you are going to visit to ensure you give yourself enough time to have a holiday as well.

Contact the school prior to your arrival and make an appointment with the Principle to discuss your child's proposed enrolment. Yes principles are busy people but they will appreciate that you have taken the time to make an appointment after all you want to make a good impression.

Local knowledge is often the best so get out and about, talk to the locals and get their views on the best school in the area. Visit a few schools and watch the students coming and going. Are they happy? How are they dressed? Are they all in uniform? If any of these are negative then you might to try and discuss this with locals. Yes you will need to mingle with parents and introduce yourself but be brave and ask what they think of the school you may be surprised as to what you find out

Check out the schools social media profile. Most schools have a Facebook page Twitter account or an app to download for your phone. Take a look at these as this will give you an indication as to how the school communicates with the local community. look at how parents discuss the school, do they use positive or negative tones? How does the school communicate back to the parents do they answer all the questions politely and positively.

Most schools have their own website which often contain details of the curriculum they offer to students including a plan of the year. Schools that have this facility are, in my opinion, often very organised and efficient which is good sign. Have a look and see what extracurricular activities they offer outside of school hours. Do they cater for disabilities or gifted and talented students? Remember the article above about adding value to a child's education. If they have a newsletter sign up for it and get regular updates on what's happening at the school.

Opinions from message boards

Last but not least the expat message boards. They are useful especially when you have honest opinions from expats that have done it. These people can often be absolute gold mines of information. That said there are those that simply use these message boards to vent off their frustration and anger which is not really what you want. However, if used carefully they can be a rich source of information.

Lastly keep in mind that students do well in schools that are well organised, with teachers that are well-prepared and supported by parents. Ever since the news began making rounds that the ruling NDA government at the centre has decided to recommend the names of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Dhyan Chand for the decoration of Bharat Ratna, the highest civilian honour in India, many opinions in various forms started wavering around.

While some people opine that Bharat Ratna has become a watered down decoration and it makes no meaning to confer the same upon the great freedom fighter like Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, few others opine that it is too late to consider Netaji for such an honour. In fact, in 1992 only, the then union government decided to confer the award posthumously on Subhash Chandra Bose, but met with a controversy. Due to the debate surrounding Netaji's death, the posthumous mention of Bose was much criticised, and also his family refused to accept the award. Following a 1997 Supreme Court decision, it was promulgated that Bose's award was cancelled. In Indian history, it is the only time when the award was announced but hasn't conferred.

Even this time, with the tittle-tattle around Bharat Ratna to be conferred on Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, a majority of his family members censured of the idea and decided not to accept it. Netaji's grandnephew Chandra Kumar Bose said, "Netaji has been missing since 1945. When you award him with Bharat Ratna posthumously, you have to say when he died, but where is the evidence? The best way to honour him is to declassify government files which can reveal the truth behind his disappearance".

Bharat Ratna which literally means the Jewel of India is the highest civilian award of the Republic of India. It was instituted on January 2, 1954 with the very aim of conferring it in recognition of exceptional service or performance of the highest order, without any sort of distinction of race, occupation, position, or sex. The award was originally limited to achievements in the arts, literature, science and public services but the government expanded the criteria to include any field of human endeavour with a December 2011 amendment. Bharat Ratna recipients rank seventh in the Indian order of precedence, but are constitutionally prohibited from using the award name as a title.

Eminent people from all walks of life personally feel that the value of Bharat Ratna has ebbed over a period of time; and also opine that it's just the political influence that fetches the highest honour and not the mere services or performance as aimed while instituting the award.

From the other side, Param Vir Chakra (PVC) which literally means Wheel of the Ultimate Brave is India's highest military honour conferred for the highest degree of courage or altruism in the presence of the enemy. It can be - and often has been, awarded posthumously. It is equivalent to the Medal of Honor in the United States, and the Victoria Cross in the United Kingdom.

The PVC was instituted on 26 January 1950, the Republic day of India, by the first President of India Dr. Rajendra Prasad, with effect from August 15, 1947, the Independence Day of India. The PVC can be awarded to personnel of all ranks from all branches of the Indian military. Like other military honours, even PVC can be awarded a second time. Nevertheless, there has not even been a single case of such kind, so far. It's always interesting to dig deep into the backstory of items one encounters on a regular basis, but knows nothing, historically speaking, about. Where did they come from? How have they evolved since their early days? Screws and augers are no different. In fact, they have a pretty compelling history behind them.

The screw and auger combination can possibly be traced all the way back to the 7th century BC. To put this era in perspective, the first naval battle in Greek recorded history occurred between Corinth and Corcyra during the same timeframe. One of the ancient wonders of the world, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, was also built by Nebuchadrezzar in this century.

And it just so happens the auger screw made its first appearance during the building of these gardens. Reputedly, the King of Assyria used a screw / auger for a screw pump that moved water to the Hanging Gardens.

Not everyone agrees with that story, but even if it is a myth, augers and screws still date back to the BC era. Their next recorded appearance occurs between 200 and 300 BC. In an effort to transfer liquid from a low-lying body of water into irrigation ditches, the ancient Greek mathematician Archimedes of Syracuse used a special kind of screw. That screw is still in existence today and bears the name Archimedes' screw pump in honor of its early adopter.

What prompted Archimedes to develop the screw? The mathematician was commissioned by King Hiero II to design a massive ship. This watercraft was named the Syracusia after Archimedes' home city of Syracuse. This giant ship required a means of removing all the bilge water that leaked through its hull. That's where Archimedes stepped in and conceived his namesake screw.

The Archimedes' screw worked like this: 1) A screw-shaped blade was built into a cylinder. 2) When hand cranked, the cylinder revolved, removing the water or transferring it to irrigation canals, depending on the desired outcome. Despite being well over two millennia old now, the Archimedes' screw is still used to pump liquid to this day. Wastewater treatment plants, in fact, use it to move their water. This type of screw is also currently used to convey solids like grain and coal.

A century or two after Archimedes, the auger / screw made another mark on history. Oil and wine in the Mediterranean world were pressed by way of screws in the 1st century BC. That purpose has been fine-tuned to allow screw presses to be used in the modern day for materials ranging from pulp and paper to biomass and sludge.

If not for early engineering screw and auger feats like these, many current industries would not be where they are today. The advancements these historical uses made in the screw have rendered a wide variety of industrial tasks more efficient than they otherwise would be. Wastewater, chemical, mining, material handling and construction processes are just some of the industry applications that owe their effectiveness to screws, augers and flighting... and the ancient applications that brought them to where they are today. Scientists believe that brain function naturally begins to deteriorate after you turn twenty, just like our physical and muscular strength gradually weakens as we age. However, just as you can maintain your physical strength if you exercise regularly, you can keep your brain power from deteriorating by providing daily stimulation for your brain.

In order to maintain your physical health, you have to (1) exercise regularly, (2) eat healthily and (3) sleep well. Similarly, in order to keep your brain healthy, you need to (1) exercise your brain regularly, (2) eat healthily and (3) sleep well.

Neuroscientists found that the brain exercises increase the delivery of oxygen, blood, and various amino acids in the prefrontal cortex. The result is more neurons and neural connections, which are characteristics of a healthy brain.

In a research carried out by me with 23 students in the age group of 15 to 28, I found the results are really encouraging. The brain exercises included are (1) Arithmetic calculations, (2) Reverse order (alphabets), (3) Sense of Direction, (4) Most repeated letter, (5) Spatial sense, (6) Series completion, and (7) Word memory. All the tests are exercised mentally and no writing materials are used. The first test contains 20 simple arithmetic calculations involving the two mathematical operators, addition and subtraction. To pass the test the participant should score 18 correct answers. In the first attempt, 9 participants passed the test. Out of this 2 participants scored 100 percent. The best time was 1 minute and 55 seconds with 90 percent accuracy. Maximum attempts taken by a participant to pass this first level test were 4. In the first attempt, the participant (age, 26 years and 6 months) took 3 minutes and 34 seconds with 15% accuracy and in the 4th attempt the person took only 2 minutes and 28 seconds with 95% accuracy. It means not only the participant was able to pass this test but also the person improved speed. In the next 14 sessions, the participant passed the next 5 levels comfortably and didn't take more than 4 attempts at anyone level. The participant passed the 6th level in 3 minutes and 35 seconds with 90% accuracy. Encouraged by the progress of the participant, I gave two advanced levels of arithmetic tests. The participant passed the advanced level test 1 in the first attempt in 2 minutes and 39 seconds with 95% accuracy and the advanced level test 2 in two attempts in 4 minutes and 50 seconds with 90% accuracy. In the next session, the participant improved the time with 4 minutes and 20 seconds (repeat of advanced level test 2).

Arithmetic calculations contain several levels. As the participants passed each level, they were tested with higher levels. Almost all participants hit a wall at a certain point. When the test was repeated several times they were able to get the breakthrough.

The most crucial point in any kind of training is continuity. It is ideal to train your brain, when your brain is the most active. It is also important to eat before you do the calculation exercise; otherwise, the effects will be reduced by half (don't eat food that makes you sleep). At the onset of training your brain function will improve somewhat steadily. However, you will probably hit a wall at a certain point. You may wonder why your results are not showing any sign of improvement. But if you hang in there and continue your training, a breakthrough will come, and you will see your scores suddenly jump. If you are facing doldrums, just remember that your brain is preparing for a leap.

What Is It and When Should You Seek It?

"Instead of getting depressed, it is easier to be in our natural state of happiness, and it is very easy to achieve it."
It's World Health Day on April 7 and this year's theme is depression. According to the World Health Organization, this condition shockingly is the leading cause of disability worldwide, with 300 million people suffering from it, so I am not surprised that I'm asked frequently whether Ho'oponopono can help to eliminate it.

The answer is very simple because, as I always explain, with the practice of this wonderful old Hawaiian art for eliminating problems, interpretations and self-limiting thoughts, such as those that cause us to sink into sadness and discouragement, these can be erased.

Depression can stay forever out of your life by choosing to live in the present moment, in what I called Zero Frequency® because it allows you to eliminate mental files or memories that can cause damage, even subconsciously.

We also have to ask ourselves: What does the person who lets themselves become discouraged and unhappy achieve? Perhaps get the attention of the people close to them so they can take care of them? Is that why this behavior becomes a habit, even "natural" and "accepted," that we become addicted to being depressed?

Osho the Master Zen said, that in order to let go of what makes you miserable, you need to be willing to let go of the benefit you think you are getting or you will get from it.

Sure, this is not a conscious level, which is why people have a hard time taking 100% responsibility. But actually realizing is just your programs, you can set yourself free from them.

You have to put a lot of effort into being depressed; it's easier to allow ourselves to be in our natural state of happiness. This is easy to achieve; you just have to "decide" to do things differently and not to engage, and give the power to these replayed memories. Move and stretch the muscles of the body for the energy to flow. Even the very act of smiling?-?as most would agree?-?causes a feeling of great well-being. It's been proven that smiles are contagious and helps keep everyone from being depressed!

On the other hand, did you know that depression often has to do with the lack of water? Although it seems incredible, hospitals use hydration to stabilize mood, so even just drinking the vital fluid helps us to feel better.

If the hydration comes from Blue Solar Water, even better. Blue Solar Water is one of the tools we use in Ho'oponopono, this ancient Hawaiian art of problem solving that I teach, and that helps us erase those programs in our subconscious mind that attract depression and so much unhappiness to our lives. Most of these programs comes from ancestors!

On the same subject, I remember a student who called me a while ago, very depressed, and because of how bad she felt, her doctor wanted to admit her into a hospital for the mentally ill, which would stop her from attending the training that Ihaleakalá and I were giving in San Diego, California.

We recommended using the Ho'oponopono tool of 3/4 glass of water and after doing so, she was able to drive to San Diego, where she arrived with a big smile saying that after changing the water three times, she felt like new.

Another exemplary story is Teresa, a student from Ho'oponopono who suffered a breakdown. They feared the worst because she had very high blood pressure and her heart might stop. She was even afraid to fall asleep and not wake up again, which led her to a constant state of anxiety and panic.

Teresa lived in Hawaii and since the doctors could not help her, she had no choice but to go to the emergency room. She was admitted to the psychiatric ward where she was given high doses of antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications. She was hospitalized four times in four years in a psychiatric unit without resolving her great anxiety and emotional pain. What the doctors did was prescribe more drugs, but since they did not go to the root of the problem, she deteriorated.

Later, she moved to San Diego, where she began to study energy healing and found the Ho'oponopono method whose cleansing processes she practiced religiously. To her surprise, according to her testimony, after discovering the Ho'oponopono seminar that she described as "a beautiful, perfect, sacred, miraculous process," she was able to throw away the addictive antidepressants.

In conclusion, it is indispensable to be aware that if the memory of a depression tries to occupy a place in your life, know that you have a choice! And remember, to release depression you can say "Thank you" or "I love you" and doing so, you let go and let God (Love), who knows best how to erase these memories that keep controlling you and taking you to the past, and to fill your heart with beautiful things. Choose to let go of depression and sit in the driver's seat!

Even the fittest person can face a sudden illness or accident needing immediate help. When such a situation presents itself before you or any of your loved ones, then the search for the required medical help can seem overwhelming especially due to the panic situation.

How are urgent care services different from Emergency rooms (ERs)?

It is very different from the traditional emergency rooms, both in its specialties and functioning and it is very crucial that you be able to decide which one will be right in a given situation. While it is recommended in cases where the injury or medical issue is not much critical, emergency rooms are most suitable for life-threatening health issues where the patient's condition is very critical. The injuries or illnesses which require more advanced equipment or need cesarean operations are generally out of the scope of urgent care facilities and will need the involvement of an emergency room. Urgent care services, however, have their own benefits over emergency rooms. First of all, hospitals and emergency rooms have grown very busy these days and if you may need to wait for hours before your turn comes. Secondly, emergency rooms are very expensive and you may end up paying a large sum of money to small medical assistance. Another reason why you shouldn't go to an emergency room for small complications is that there are many patients in a hospital who actually need immediate treatment and you will only be bothering the often too busy doctors with your trifles.

How to always keep your body clean

In every way that really matters, equity was served when Sandy Berger was fined $50,000 by U.S. Justice Judge Deborah Robinson in her decision on September 8, 2005 in regards to Sandy Berger's misusing of characterized records. In addition, Sandy Berger will give up his exceptional status for a long time following the decision. Sandy Berger generous acknowledged Judge's Robinson's choice.

Truth be told, some would effectively accept that Sandy Berger got firm punishments since his exchanges with boss investigator Noel Hillman and organization included just $10,000 in fine. His loss of security permit exacerbated the punishments. By and large, Judge Robinson's choice made both the Republicans and the Democrats, the U.S Justice Department and the Sandy Berger camp, amazingly upbeat and alleviated.

A few people both in the administration and the private division, be that as it may, don't feel that the decision was reasonable by any stretch of the imagination. For these individuals, the punishments collected after blundering previous National Security Advisor Sandy Berger was practically identical to minor a slap on the wrist. For a mistake so grave, the fine ought to have been more extreme and Sandy Berger ought to have been sent to imprison.

It was a criminal demonstration as per the law.

The Sandy Berger camp got around saying that what Berger carried out was a negligible infringement of the National Archives' guidelines, yet it was not really a criminal demonstration. Indeed, be that as it may, what Berger canned effectively be named an infringement of Section 793 of Title 18 of the U.S Code. Under this segment, purposeful spread of characterized archives and materials is criminal. Indeed, even unplanned spread of or losing ordered materials because of gross carelessness under this code is deserving of a fine and additionally detainment of at most 10 years.

It was a troublesome thing for Berger's commentators to swallow that Sandy Berger got off so softly when under this law, he could have been condemned 10 years. Regardless of whether nobody could reasonably expect Berger to be given the full most extreme, commentators still accepted that Sandy Berger ought to have been fined AND detained for a term.

Sandy Berger purposely evacuated the records.

At first, Sandy Berger wouldn't admit to purposely taking the reports from the National Archives. He demanded, when he was first interrogated by National Archives authorities regarding missing reports, that he inadvertently pushed them in with his papers when he gathered his things into his portfolio. He expeditiously restored these reports.

Notwithstanding, after due examination, it was discovered that Berger took more than those two duplicates. He in certainty took three more on an earlier visit. He later confessed to cutting these up when he confessed to have purposely taken the ordered materials.

Pundits accepted that regardless of whether they yield that Sandy Berger had no goal of spreading the delicate data, they had no expectation of surrendering that Berger committed a genuine error. The way that he is a previous National Security Advisor implies that he knew appropriate methodology and conventions with regards to grouped materials. Sandy Berger realized thFlorida Congressman Mark Foley has left Congress in the midst of charges and claims that he had wrong email contacts with a previous young page in the House of Representatives. So what's the genuine article? What's truly going on? You can peruse the mainline press, and sit in front of the TV, yet you'll never get to the genuine story that way. You need to uncover it for yourself, and that is the thing that we have done. We have chatted with the movers and the shakers, to realize what's truly occurring.

Most importantly, nobody has a privilege to damage the sacredness of an adolescent's reality. In our nation youngsters are secured and given rights decisively in light of the fact that they are youthful. They are at an age where they can not secure themselves. It is the indication of a propelled society that we secure them, too we should.

Individuals who might go after our youngsters ought to go to imprison for the remainder of their lives. There is no compelling reason to give such "filth" another opportunity. We shouldn't take that risk by giving them another possibility. It is additionally the image of a propelled society that the designers of our constitution made a special effort to ensure the privileges of crooks. Contrasted with each other society on earth, here's one onlooker that supposes we complete a genuinely great job. Presently having said that what's happening in Washington?

For one thing, neither one of the parties has a stranglehold on morals. The Democrats have stolen the same amount of cash during that time as the Republicans. What they spend it on might be unique, however the cash in the two cases appears to DISAPPEAR, with next to no to appear for it. The principal standard of government, and I gained this by and by from Noble Prize winning business analyst Milton Friedman is that, "Whoever is in influence, wants to burn through cash."

Ronald Reagan was a saint of mine. No one could burn through cash like him, until this President that is. At any rate Reagan bankrupted the Soviet Union and drove them out of intensity. What does Bush need to appear for his trillions? A war without plainly characterized goals, and several billions in pork spending that no general public can manage. He is the principal President in my lifetime that has decided not to practice the intensity of the VETO.

This gay Congressman was not a sleeper. Individuals around him knew his characteristics. They overlooked them for their very own reasons. Foley was racing to be Senator from Florida two or three years prior, and the gathering torpedoed the assignment to offer it to Mel Martinez out of dread that word would get out.

The Speaker of the House of Representatives realized something was up and chosen to stay silent. Don't these folks acknowledge at this point 'THINGS DON'T BLOW OVER". Word gets out; it generally does; regardless of whether it's Hewlett Packard attempting to snuff out corporate listening stealthily, or Enron attempting to cover their money related stresses in deceives Wall Street. You can just prop that game up so long, and after that by one way or another it turns out badly.

On the off chance that the weak Democrats are brilliant, they will say nothing, and do nothing about this Mark Foley issue. The universe of the Republicans is vaporizing directly before their eyes. These are men who state they are preservationists, but then fool of conservatism. Barry Goldwater the Arizona traditionalist Republican Senator who began everything, would be horrified at what is occurring in his gathering today. He probably won't most likely call himself a moderate any longer in the event that he were alive.

Foley was accountable for a subcommittee in the House that managed abused youngsters. You talk about living a falsehood. Where are we as residents of a free society, whenever chose authorities believe that it's alright to embrace one thing in broad daylight, and afterward do the contrary thing in private.

I would ask our chosen authorities, "How idiotic would you be able to be"? What commitment do you make to society? The remainder of us are over here supporting ourselves, improving our schools, and improving our neighborhood networks. You all are simply living off the aggregate tolerability of the remainder of us. You burn through cash like it's boundless. You eat in the best cafés, yet your fundamental check isn't enormous enough to help your way of life. Who's paying for these ways of life? On the off chance that it's not the residents than what's identity, expected in kind.

Imprint Foley is emblematic of something appallingly wrong in the two gatherings. It's a climate of anything goes, and I am unquestionably sound. I am not responsible. Is this extremely the message we need to send to the people to come. Foley, this debilitated, careless Congressman needs to take cover behind the thought that he was smashed when he submitted these demonstrations. Truly, does he truly feel that the remainder of us are going to succumb to his careless prattle?

I referenced in this article I am commonly hopeful with respect to my nation. What keeps me idealistic today is the intensity of the Internet. It is something the establishing fathers would have wondered about. Truly, there's a lot of "Clamor or CHATTER" out there. Indeed, you must be engaged to get pass the sheer thickness of data that is accessible to every one of us. Ok, when you get passed that commotion however, there's a freeing knowledge anticipating every one of us. We have the ability to get whatever information we want on pretty much any point.

We are not utilizing that immense information yet, yet we will be. It is possible that by 2008, the Internet will totally change the look and feel of American legislative issues. The political procedure as we probably am aware it will be unrecognizable contrasted with where we are today. With data there is power, and individuals will have options that they don't have today. There's another opportunity coming, and with it, a move of intensity back to the general population. at anyway urgent his meeting with the 9/11 commission was, it was significantly increasingly basic to ensure national security by following the National Archives' guidelines about these records. The way that Berger purposely put himself exempt from the laws that apply to everyone else ought to have justified in excess of a slap on the wrist yet a clobber on the butt.

How to Write awesome Health Articles

Composing is certainly not an a drop in the bucket. Journalists think about numerous things while composing content. Mind-set is the articulation that sets the way for authors to think of top quality substance. Great journalists use time effectively. Great authors compose powerful substance reliably. They additionally need to manage author's squares to create connecting with content. Things that fill in as hindrances to journalists for thinking of unrivaled substance are: fatigue, absence of thoughts, lack of time, and interruptions.

Perusing an incredible book is mitigating and unwinding to the spirit, such as eating a fine dinner or making the most of your preferred solace nourishment. You need to return over and over, not exclusively to sustain you, yet to satisfy your sense of taste, or mitigate your faculties. When going out to eat, you have numerous spots from where to choose. You rely upon your decision of foundation to give a similar extraordinary quality unfailingly, without even batting an eye. A similar relationship can be made of following your preferred essayist. You need to follow an author that is reliably acceptable at his specialty.

Follow an author that keeps the equivalent steady high-gauge of composing, an essayist that has an incredible hard working attitude, and capacity to come to pass words into sentences that are liquid and simple perusing. Be certain that your author's contemplations and content transposes and effectively streams as you read on paper, or as you read on the Internet. What's more, obviously, we as a whole need mental incitement, through perusing great composition, and appreciate expending incredible composed content, much similar to the utilization of a decent dinner! Pick a decent author like you would pick a decent eatery. Request and get served a similar quality each time you visit the foundation or composing gathering. You come to get served in the two places; your time is valuable and essayists and cafés are in rivalry for your time, cash and wish to serve you! In the event that you feel that you can identify with an essayist, you will look for their writing decisively and perhaps rely upon perusing new entries from a portion of your preferred journalists.

Perusing is devouring content for mental incitement. You need to brace your body by what you expend and your psyche by what you read. Perusing material ought to be elegantly composed with deliberately arranged words, musings as though marinading a reliable formula that can be eaten up by you, at your relaxation. There are many individuals who put working out into the Universe that should not be composing by any stretch of the imagination! Their longing for cash is more grounded than their will to try sincerely and supply great, imaginative particular substance. The decision is yours my companion, do you compose in light of the fact that it is unmistakably your energy? Or on the other hand, do you compose as an extortionist looking for fast cash, that is until your crowd understands that you've not done your best exertion on your substance?

Composing is a privilege and furthermore a benefit, particularly saw when somebody peruses or says something about what you have composed. The equivalent can be said about painting, brightening, cooking or anything that you have made utilizing your own time and creative mind. Most great cooks will disclose to you that piece of their purpose behind cooking is the capacity to make, with energy; to put their inventive stamp of inventiveness, over the span of making their dish, dinner or artful culmination. The equivalent can be said about composition! You are cooking, aging, tasting and marinading considerations over the span of developing and heating your composed creation.

Fatigue can influence authors seriously, and can make it extremely hard for essayists to compose drawing in content. By the by, journalists can battle with fatigue in the event that they follow a couple of things. They can sit in front of the TV, go out for running, and call their companions to restore their disposition for composing. Authors ought to in a flash beginning composing when they end up feeling wonderful. Once in a while, scholars think that its hard to concoct thoughts for composing. This is one of the scholars' obstructs that pretty much every author faces. Scholars ought not stop composing when they think that its difficult to find thoughts for composing. They should check out things incorporating them, should peruse posts of different scholars, and ought to likewise utilize catchphrases on web crawlers to find various types of subjects.

At the point when journalists go through a bustling day, they think that its elusive time for composing content. Journalists realize that they can't make captivating substance in a brief timeframe. In this way, scholars ought to make just a framework for article when they are shy of time to compose a composed post. They should structure their diagram the following day as article by keeping up validity in their posts. Interruptions do hurt and can confound authors. Discussing relatives, humming sounds leaving the streets, and clamor of radio or TV can divert authors from composing content. Scholars need to wind up in places where they won't hear any commotion. One approach to manage interruptions is to sit in a tranquil room by shutting entryway of the room.

How to write clean and healthy Articles

Quality substance is critical to incredible composition and distributing with a legitimate foundation is fundamental for your composing energy to succeed! The Internet is such a wild, wild west of criminal behavior happening to individuals who post their Intellectual Property on sites and online journals. It's no big surprise that fewer and fewer individuals are posting anything engaging on their sites. There are different scholars, sponsors and enormous business organizations taking thoughts, trademarks, and sentences, as though they composed it! Verbiage that was composed by a modest author that wanted to express his heart all alone blog.

This isn't just happening to authors from individuals or organizations, that live in different nations, it is as a rule normally being finished by individuals who the essayist managed at once or another, and for the most part inside their own nation or outskirt, nearby Intellectual copycats, stalkers and hoodlums.

Make it a point to know about what and where you post and distribute your composition. On the off chance that a companion requests that you post on their blog, considerately decrease and offer a connection that they can use and have perusers diverted to your site, book or to your business. Too often, organizations are tricky and edgy for GOOD WRITING CONTENT, and they will lie, cheat and take to get complimentary gifts from great scholars. In the event that you are going to post your composing do as such on a solid, trusted, longstanding, settled gathering. Additionally, delay once in a while, so no one become acclimated to complimentary gifts from you.

Set aside the effort to make a business arrangement for where, who, and when you intend to compose and get the correct sort of composing introduction. There are sneaky, independent ventures that bring home the bacon off of taking and stalking journalists on the Internet. These business get into pay-per-connect pornography business since they have gone so low in their business morals and they are presumably battling monetarily so they resort to pornography joins for pay. Know, and report these organizations to the best possible specialists and improve the world a spot without these organizations and low-level journalists.

I accept that you despite everything need to experience the best possible chains to get your composing distributed. I have seen such a significant number of books that are completely TERRIBLE, no accentuation, to having no attractive substance AT ALL to peruse. Except if you truly know your history or truly need to peruse something that is acceptable, I propose you locate a decent creator and tail them. Great writers are known by where they have their books distributed, their tender loving care, and QUALITY CONTENT, each time they compose. ***

It is anything but difficult to compose an article of sub-par quality, since you get an enlarged sense of self and feel that you can't be blamed under any circumstance. False, even someone that has been distributed before can compose a lousy article, book or promotion since they feel entitled and made a second rate showing on a task. Invest wholeheartedly in the work that you give to perusers, invest wholeheartedly in the time and exertion that it took you to compose your advertisement or article. Be embarrassed to peruse articles that are copied and realize that low-level authors will be uncovered for their apathy and easy excitement.

*I have composed such a lot of that has been distributed and is on the Internet, that I naturally know when my work is appropriated, once more. I used to get frantic, presently I simply feel frustrated about low-level journalists that are dull inside, without unique creation, content and aesthetic sharpness. They most likely made their $25.00 an article by duplicate/glue from the distributed expressions of another author's difficult work, time venture and passion~ they stalk other great essayists on the Internet. Karma comes to ALL~ even to low-level independent venture, and stealing, little disapproved, languid scholars the same. Recollect authors, it takes difficult work, a great hard working attitude, and using your own control to set up your innovativeness, association and composing abilities prepared for distribution. You need to have yourself sorted out before marking your name on any book,ad or article~ you WANT be pleased to put your signature, out into the world, for others to peruse behind a top notch brand. Your composing is your image, ensure that your mark shows an extraordinary brand of character and composing quality
