3. Consuming coffee daily can drastically decrease your chances of developing liver cancer and disease
Italian researcher Dr. Carlo La Vecchia, Milan’s Istituto di Ricerche Farmacologiche Mario Negri conducted a study that shows consuming at least one cup of coffee daily can lower the risk of liver cancer by 40%! Additionally, some results showed that if you drink three cups a day, the risks reduce by more than 50%. According to a study at the Kaiser Permanente Medical Care Program, coffee consumption can lower the incidence of cirrhosis of the liver for alcohol drinkers by 22%. Research also showed that drinking more than two cups of coffee daily reduce the risk of death from liver cirrhosis by 66%.

4. Whistle While You Work: Music can Enhance Your Work Performance?

Listening to music during work is frowned upon However, music can actually help your work performance?
The researchers found that listening did improve task performance on simple tasks, but not on complex tasks (Oldham 1995). Nonetheless, for the employees that listened to music, the music made them more relaxed and in a better mood at work. The researchers also found that the employees that listened to music were less likely to quit (Oldham 1995).

It seems carefully tailoring the music you listen to while studying, based on the subject matter and your mood, can help keep you focused — so long as you stay away from lyrics while doing language-based work.

5. People who are easily distracted tend to be more intelligent.

People who often find their mind wandering have too much brain. Specifically, the easily distracted tended to have more grey matter. So says Ryota Kanai and his colleagues at University College London, who found larger than average volumes of grey matter in certain brain regions in those whose attention is readily diverted.

6. Why we fear the things we do

The amygdala is probably one of the smallest structures in the human brain. It’s just a tiny mass of neurons (Bailey, 2014). It’d be easy to dismiss it, but you shouldn’t-and here’s why. The amygdala has a lot on its plate. For one, it controls the secretion of hormones that are responsible for fear and aggression (Bailey, 2014). It also interacts with the hippocampus to deal with your memory (Bailey, 2014). It’s no wonder, then, that the amygdala is what is responsible for controlling your phobias.
Is it something innately born, the answer is probably not. The research conducted shows that a genetic link is highly unlikely (Goode, 2015). It’s much more likely that phobias are the product of our environment or experiences.

Poem Friday – 09/02/2015 – Please help them heal

P1240257-002

Please Lord Help Them Heal

As I look outside to a magnificent day
Why can’t we just feel the peace and just so enjoy it in every way

Why is it that there is such grief and lives taken away
Why do we have things happen to make that blue sky seem dark and so grey

More people killed more children dead
Killed by a yellow belly, screwed up in the head

The pain felt by those loved ones left behind
The inner heart ache, too hard to imagine, crippling destruction to the mind

Just a small town, peaceful not a gun to be found
For everyone that lives there this whole scenario does confound

There was no protection for those in that town as that coward knew
His evil he put into action as his hatred grew

So my point is here, guns you may not approve and totally dislike
But had that security officer been armed, the coward may not been able to strike

I don’t know that cowards name and don’t care to know
But if there is a ‘Hell’ that is where he will go

The anger the sadness that the country does feel
Please help those Loved ones Lord, Please help them heal
