Guide To European Debt – Funny, Scary, True – John Clarke NZ Comedian

This guy always makes me laugh. This subject though just makes you realize how stupid the economics of these countries are.

Did You Know – 09/24/2018

  1. Research reported in the Journal called the Lancet say’s that 45 minutes three to five times a week can improve your mental health. On the other hand more than 90 min a day can actually worsen your metal health – lesson here, is do not overdo it.

 

2. There are 196 countries in the world today:- 195 if you don’t include Taiwan as many countries do not officially recognize it

 

3. The perfect length of time to be on vacation is 8 days. Your health and wellness levels rise rapidly while on holiday but peak on the 8th day. The suggestion is to take more vacations instead of longer ones

 

4. Sleeping with your bedroom door closed could help you survive a house fire. Open door  can reach 1,000+ degrees Fahrenheit. Having your door closed can keep the temperature in your room below 100, limit the carbon monoxide exposure and reduce smoke inhalation

 

5. One if five people suffer from misophonia – This is a condition where certain sounds trigger bouts of anger or stress. 36% say their symptoms worsened after they had caffeine. Some of the other triggers are Gum popping, food chewing or crunching, sniffing,  breathing, not sure about that one ( We all have to breathe) , pen clicking, clock ticking, whistling, lip smacking, finger or foot tapping

Alkaline Health – Part 4 – Why Should We Care

 

bg_waterfall

Look I know I have said it before but I am passionate about this subject and I love my new filtering machine. Are you suffering from sleepless nights, arthritis, restless leg syndrome, cramps, dehydration, sore muscles and numerous other debilitating symptoms. It could be and mostly,  that your body is Acid which is extremely negative to the body. So……

What is alkaline water, anti-oxidation, enhanced hydration, and why should we care?
Water is essential for life, but it is often overlooked. It’s critical not only to drink water, but also to drink the right water…
 
Alkaline water
Increase the pH of your water to restore balance in your body.
 
Anti-oxidation
Reduce the water’s Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP) to protect against free radicals, allowing your tissues to rejuvenate.
 
Enhanced hydration
Micro-cluster water molecules so your cells and body can hydrate more effectively.
 
 
Why Alkaline Water?
 
Our bodies consists of over 70 percent water molecules, which makes water the most important factor to our health.
 
In general, alkalinity promotes and maintains optimal health in the body, while acidity has a negative impact. While some acidity is natural and necessary, many people suffer from leaning too acidic, which is a far too common result of our modern diet from acidic foods and beverages. When we lean acidic, our bodies compensate through natural buffers, which kick in to maintain the necessary alkalinity in the body. Over time, this compensation can lead to unintended consequences, such as weaker bones and muscles or even disease. Alkaline water offers a convenient and safe way to bring our bodies back into balance and achieve optimal hydration.
 
Water is the most crucial factor in establishing and maintaining proper acid-alkaline balance. pH (Potential of Hydrogen) is a measure of relative acidity or alkalinity, with 0 at the extreme acid end of the scale and 14 at the extreme alkaline end. The blood stream seeks to maintain a consistent pH balance of 7.3 or 7.4, but poor quality diet, stress, environmental toxins, and medications can cause our metabolic pH to become too acidic. Because disease thrives in acidosis, drinking alkaline water is the fastest way to positively impact health and eradicate inflammation caused by excess acidity. High pH water (about 9.5) can alkaline the body at the cellular level and help the blood stream maintain its appropriate pH. This, in turn, helps to increase energy, improve sleep, reduce pain, eliminate acid reflux, normalize blood pressure and weight, and resist disease.
 
 
What is pH?
 
pH stands for ‘potential of Hydrogen,’ which is a measure of hydrogen ion concentration; a measure of the acidity or alkalinity of a solution. The pH scale ranges from 1-14 used to measure how acidic or alkaline a substance is. A pH of 7 is neutral. A pH less than 7 is acidic, and a pH greater than 7 is alkaline. A Danish chemist, S.P.L. Sørensen, invented it back in 1909.
 
 
What is Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP)? Anti-oxidation
 
The Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP) is a measurement of the presence of oxidizing agents in drinking water. A positive ORP indicates oxidation (aging/deterioration) potential whereas a negative ORP indicates antioxidant (anti-aging/beneficial) potential. Most tap and bottled water typically have a positive ORP. For example, tap water may have an ORP of +580-600mV. However, a negative value is desirable for deoxidization power. The ideal ORP level for the human body is said to be between -150mV and -400mV.
 
Medically it is known that active oxygen, also known as free radicals, enters the body when one’s daily rhythm of life or diet goes astray when under stress. It is the type of oxygen that causes illness and aging. Maintaining a daily rhythm will help keep this oxygen from entering your body! Likewise, drinking water with an ideal ORP level also aids in reducing active oxygen/free radicals in the body.
 
 
What is micro-clustered water? Enhanced hydration
 
A water molecule is made of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom to make up the commonly known H2O ‘water’ molecule. However, what you may not know is that water comes in clusters of molecules (rather than single molecules), and tap water contains very large clusters of up to 13 molecules. What this means for your body is that you will feel fuller longer after drinking a glass of tap water, because of the amount of water molecules that need to be processed for hydration.
 
However, if you drink micro-clustered water that contains only five or six molecule clusters, the water will be that much more hydrating, soluble, and permeating for the cells and the body. In essence, micro-clustered water delivers wetter water so that more of the nutrients will be absorbed into the cells at a faster rate.
 
Sound confusing? Think of micro-clustered water as a handful of BBs compared to a softball. If you throw the softball at a chain-link fence, it won’t pass through. However, if you throw the BBs at the fence, they pass through seamlessly. Micro-clustered water is like that. It permeates your cells much like the BBs through the fence, hydrating your body within seconds of drinking, leaving you less bloated and more completely hydrated.
 
By drinking water that contains fewer molecules, or micro-clustered, alkaline, ionized water, you can hydrate your body more quickly and effectively, enhance energy levels, improve your overall aerobic capacity and health, and prevent premature aging. Additionally, antioxidants are a benefit of micro-clustering, which have been proven to boost the immune system.
 
The benefits of micro-clustered water were upheld by an independent study conducted by the Chinese Health Care Science and Technology Society (CHCS), which found that 60 percent of people who drank micro-clustered water had their cellular hydration level increase tenfold.
 
Kangen Water® system produces ionized alkaline water through electrolysis, providing the ideal pH, Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP), and micro-clustered water to allow for greater permeability within the cells to hydrate and replenish quicker.

These are the cities and countries you will find the Kangen Water system. It is a growing trend because of the problems of toxic water supplies. If you have one or intend getting one I believe you will be so grateful in the future as not only is it good for your health, accidents happen with our water supply at times and this may save you and your family’s life. Just Sayin.

Speaking Exchange Between The Young And The Old

I think this is a wonderful Idea. No 1 reason, that it helps students from other countries learn to speak english and establish a great friendship and No 2, it allows the retired to keep up their computer skill and communicate with the young.
Obviously from this video, they develop quite the relationship with each other. I believe this is something that should be encouraged between countries as there are a lot of retired people that have time on their hands, where teachers and lecturers do not.
Another good reason is that these adults and children get a better understanding of each others cultures.

This is a must watch
