3. Laughter helps to destroy tumor cells and reduce risk of cancer by 25%.
Laughter is a physical reaction in humans and some other species of primate, consisting typically of rhythmical, often audible contractions of the diaphragm and other parts of the respiratory system. It is a response to certain external or internal stimuli.
Wikipedia
Laughter decreases stress hormones and increases immune cells and infection-fighting antibodies, thus improving your resistance to disease. Laughter triggers the release of endorphins, the body’s natural feel-good chemicals. Endorphins promote an overall sense of well-being and can even temporarily relieve pain.
Laughter the best medicine

4. Music is one of the few activities in life that involve using the whole brain.
Finnish researchers have developed a groundbreaking new method that allows to study how the brain processes different aspects of music, such as rhythm, tonality and timbre (sound color) in a realistic listening situation. The study is pioneering in that it for the first time reveals how wide networks in the brain, including areas responsible for motor actions, emotions, and creativity, are activated during music listening. The new method helps us understand better the complex dynamics of brain networks and the way music affects us.

5.Thomas Jefferson wrote in an 1816 letter to John Taylor that ‘the banking system of the US Government could potentially destroy ‘all our constitutions’, was already corrupt, was sweeping away in its progress the fortunes and morals of our citizens, would swindle future generations to acquire its funding and that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies’ . I think that guy had great foresight in my opinion.

Safe Online and Mobile Banking

Safe Online and Mobile Banking

Online and mobile banking are very convenient, but they can create risks if not managed carefully. While your bank employs the highest security measures to keep your account safe, you must protect your devices, passwords, and personal details when using online and mobile banking platforms.

The following tips may help you protect and safeguard your information:
  • Never disclose passwords or other personal information in response to an email, phone call or letter purporting to be from Trustmark or another financial institution. Banks will never request this information.
  • Always use a secure internet connection to connect to your bank. Look for ‘HTTPS’ at the beginning of the address and the padlock symbol in the browser frame.
  • When banking from your desktop, type your bank’s website address into your browser instead of following a link or a bookmark, as they can be compromised.
  • When using a mobile banking app, make sure you connect over a secure network rather than a public Wi-Fi hotspot. You can also disable the Wi-Fi and switch to a cellular network. It’s always best to use the mobile banking app sanctioned by your bank.
  • Use strong passwords and PINs; use a different password and PIN for each website.
  • Ensure you have effective and updated antivirus/antispyware software and firewall running before you log in to your bank account.
  • Do not reveal your passwords or PINs to anyone else or write them down.
  • If you notice any unusual transactions in your statement, report them immediately.
  • Cancel paper statements as they are easily intercepted and read. Instead, opt-in for e-statements and/or register for mobile alerts.
