According to Denise Cullen a writer for Australian magazine ‘Nature and Health” (my favorite health magazine) Evidence is mounting that our thoughts, emotions and beliefs can heal and avert disease – So choose wisely – her words.

$24 Billion – drug companies in the US spend per year spent marketing to doctors – no wonder they hand out drugs willy nilly in my opinion.
$6.4 Billion –  drug companies spend advertising directly to consumers in the US annually

Mind boggles I have to say

 

5. If your senses tell you some one is lying. Not sure why. Trust your gut because they probably are. Studies show that your gut is far better at detecting lies than your brain. Your first instinct is usually the correct one. If you have time to think about it, the chances are you will then convince yourself you are wrong and change your mind so go with that first instinct.

Supplementing the power of ionized water

newsletter_header_1

screen-shot-2016-12-13-at-2-02-50-pmIn addition to making he best water Ionizer in the industry the company also offers a very unique dietary supplement,  Ukon, also known as Turmeric. Other turmeric supplements oxidize quickly upon opening, but not ours. Each capsule is individually packed and stays preserved until it is ready to be taken. The area where the tunic is grown is at the northern tip of the island of Okinawa, known as Yanbaru. This region is often referred to as “nature’s treasure” (shizen no takara) in Japanese. The spring Ukon harvested exclusively for the company, is organically grown on dedicated farms in Yanbaru and is 100% free of harmful chemicals used in lower-quality, conventional turmeric farming. The soil inherent to Okinawa is perfectly suited to the cultivation of Ukon, providing a rich densely nutritious bed layer for the Ukon to grow within. It is also said that the angle and the length of sunshine during a warm Okinawan day is perfectly attuned to growing Ukon. this is the worlds first supplement ever produced by combining curcumin, ionized alkaline water and 100% plant-based soft gel capsule is made complete with antioxidant ingredients such as olive oil, perilla oil flaxseed and tocotrienol. In addition carrageenan, a seaweed derivative, is used as an ingredient for the coating of the capsule. Every ingredient is 100% plant-based, vegan-friendly, with absolutely no animal products used in  any way. turmeric

Sarcasm At Its Best – Letter To A Budget Airline in Australia

I thought this was priceless

 

766e15c6808ff04b00b0e52325aca674

Budget airlines seem to have a knack for copping flack from their passengers — but you’ve never seen a complaint quite like this before.

Passenger, Jay Mancuso from South Australia, flew low-cost carrier, Jetstar, back to Australia from Bali recently and contacted the airline with a rather unusual gripe. Here’s his hilarious letter to Jetstar on Facebook and their just as witty response.

Dear Mr & Mrs Jetstar.

Hello, my name is Jay, and you guys gave me and my beautiful new wife a lift to Bali the other week to get married. Twas a lovely occasion and I believe you also gave about 60ish of our guests a lift also. Apart from the cramped seats, all went very well.

Now, I have read with interest several attacks on budget airlines, such as yourself, in recent years. Today I’d like to become one of these people (insert eye roll here).

On Friday evening at Denpasar international airport, my wife (still getting used to that) and I checked in at your Jetstar desk. Tired and grumpy (no one likes leaving holidays) we walked through the immigration stuff and wasn’t till we were “on the other side” we noticed that we were incorrectly allocated our seats. Prior to travel, I booked and paid for extra legroom, being a big fella, in seats 1a and 1b. Alas, we were allocated 15c and 15b. What?! That’s outrageous, I thought. I continued to the gate and talked to a lovely lady there who said the seats were double booked. But they changed our seats to 2a & 2b. Oh well, not much I can do from here.

Disgruntled as we were, we walked onto the plane and a wonderful lady, Abbey, flight manager, asked us why we had our tickets changed. I explained. Abbey then moved us to front row opposite and apologised profusely.

BUT! It didn’t stop there. Abbey had the nerve to tell us that she was incredibly embarrassed about our mix up, gave us both a Jetstar comfort pack (love the toothbrush) and a warm little blanket for the journey. Wow, of all the insolence. Then, THEN just after take off, would you believe she continued her torrent of niceness, and told us to select a beverage and some food FREE of charge!!!!!

Landing in Adelaide at 6:00am she then still gave us a huge friendly smile and apologised once again.

This is not the behaviour one expects when travelling with a low cost carrier and it must stop! I expect far less of your staff and I think Abbey needs a good talking to.

So, in finishing. To dear Abbey, flight manager on board flight JQ128 ex DPS -ADL on Friday night the 25th November 2016, I salute you. Your customer service and attention to detail was exemplary. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts, you turned our frowns upside down. Jetstar, give this girl a sticker of excellence. It’s conduct like this that ensure we will be flying Jetstar again. (But can we please have a Dreamliner plane for the Adelaide to DPS run?)

Yours in good fun.

Jay Mancuso

 

Jetstar penned this reply:

Hi Jay,

Thank you for your post and congratulations to you and your new Mrs!

I’m sorry to hear of the issues with your seating, but so glad Abbey could turn it around for you and make sure you had an awesome flight. We go to great lengths to try and provide passengers with excellent customer service so it’s always helpful when a customer takes the time to tell us exactly what we’re getting right.

 

It’s also really rewarding for our team to have their work recognised in such a thoughtful way. I’ve passed your comments on to Abbey and her managers and I know they’ll really appreciate your thanks.

I’m sorry if I’m just pushing it too far, but I’ve also requested for a refund to be processed back to your credit card for the cost of the extra leg room seating, just as a further gesture of goodwill (how annoying can we be?). We’ll process this within 15 business days.

Thanks again for your great post and all the best to you and your new wife. We hope to see you both on board again soon :)

Cheers — Mrs Jetstar (Emma)

Beat Those Roaming Costs On Your Phone Bill

I was listening to the news this morning and one of the news items was a woman who recieved a bill from the phone company for $200,000. The reason being her son who apparently is deaf,  was in canada and used his phone for texting, like 2,000 texts, downloaded video’s and other information from the internet and of course  phone calls. I mean how ridiculous was that. Did that Mother not think to tell him to use the phone only in emergencies or did she not know what the cost of using your phone in another country would be. Anyway I believe the phone company reduced the bill to $2,500. Still that is expensive.
Because I do a lot of travelling I am aware of the cost of using my phone. I was caught once but not again.

Here are some tips to save you the stress.

1. International plans
Wireless carriers say customers can cut costs by subscribing to their international plans, which offer reduced rates for voice calls, text messaging and data streaming.
AT&T, for example, charges a “standard international roaming rate” of $1.39 a minute for wireless phone calls made or received in France. Subscribers to AT&T’s World Traveler program — who pay $5.99 a month for reduced rates in more than 150 countries — pay 99 cents a minute in France.
AT&T suggest that before you go travelling contact them and discuss where you will be traveling to and how often you expect to use the phone. The International plan that AT&T have is supposed to save you hundreds of dollars but I am sure if you are not careful you will have a shock when you get home at the bill you will recieve.
Good suggestion but not the best.

2. More control over roaming charges.
a. Truphone – Truphone’s Tru SIM international cards let you place a roaming SIM (subscriber identity module) card inside your GSM (global system for mobile communications) phone, a wireless technology standard used by AT&T and T-Mobile. With a basic Tru Essential plan, which costs $30 a month, you get 100 minutes to use in the USA, Britain, the Netherlands and Australia. Each additional minute costs 10 cents to 20 cents. Data costs are as low as 10 cents a megabyte, depending on the plan.

b. XCom Global – Offers unlimited data for $17.95 a day ($14.95 a day for members).The company offers a mobile hot spot device that can connect a smartphone, a laptop and up to three other devices to the Internet in 67 countries. With some smartphones, the hot-spot device and a Skype mobile app, cheap international calls can be made.

c. Tep Wireless – Rents both a pocket Wi-Fi hot spot and local smartphones. Tep Wireless charges $6.50 a day for five-day use of a smartphone in Britain. Unlimited data and 100 local texts are included. You can pay extra for voice calls — $12.50 for 250 minutes of international calls and 20 minutes of local calls.

3. PrePaid sim Card – This is what I do, it allows me to keep track of how much I am spending and most of all when I get home from traveling I don’t have and exorbitant phone bill waiting for me. I have my Iphone unlocked by my provider and that allows me to purchase and use a prepaid sim card in whatever country I am in. Just a word of advice though put your sim cards in a safe place. They are so small that they can easily be lost. I always wrap them up and put them in my passport or in part of my briefcase where it won’t slip out.
