Did You Know – 12/10/2018

2. Now this one is a long ‘Did You Know” but fascinating and well worth the read as I bet most of you have no clue about the Soldiers who guard the ‘Tomb of the Unknown Soldier’


Tomb of the Unknown Soldier

1. How many steps does the guard take during his
walk across the tomb of the Unknowns and why?

21 steps. It alludes to the twenty-one gun salute, which is the
highest honor given any military or foreign dignitary.

2. How long does he hesitate after his about-face to begin
his return walk and why?

21 seconds for the same reason as answer number 1

3. Why are his gloves wet?

His gloves are moistened to prevent his losing his grip on the rifle.

4. Does he carry his rifle on the same shoulder all the time and if not, why not?

He carries the rifle on the shoulder away from the tomb.
After his march across the path, he executes an about-face
and moves the rifle to the outside shoulder.

5. How often are the guards changed?

Guards are changed every thirty minutes, twenty-four hours a day, 365 days a year.

6. What are the physical traits of the guard limited to?

For a person to apply for guard duty at the tomb, he must be between 5′ 10′ and 6′ 2′ tall and his waist size cannot exceed 30.’ Other requirements of the Guard:
They must commit 2 years of life to guard the tomb, live in a barracks under the tomb, and cannot drink any alcohol on or off duty for the rest of their lives.
They cannot swear in public for the rest of their lives and cannot disgrace the uniform {fighting} or the tomb in any way. After two years, the guard is given a wreath pin that is worn on their lapel signifying they served as guard of the tomb. There are only 400 presently worn.
The guard must obey these rules for the rest of their lives or give up the wreath pin.

The shoes are specially made with very thick soles to keep the heat and cold from their feet. There are metal heel plates that extend to the top of the shoe in order to make the loud click as they come to a halt.
There are no wrinkles, folds or lint on the uniform.
Guards dress for duty in front of a full-length mirror.
The first six months of duty a guard cannot talk to anyone, nor watch TV.
All off duty time is spent studying the 175 notable people laid to rest in Arlington National Cemetery. A guard must memorize who they are and where they are interred.

Among the notables are: President Taft, Joe E. Lewis {the boxer} and Medal of Honor winner Audie Murphy, {the most decorated soldier of WWII} of Hollywood fame.

Every guard spends five hours a day getting his uniforms ready for guard duty.

In 2003 as Hurricane Isabelle was approaching Washington , DC , our US Senate/House took 2 days off with anticipation of the storm. On the ABC evening news, it was reported that because of the dangers from the hurricane, the military members assigned the duty of guarding the
Tomb of the Unknown Soldier were given permission to suspend the assignment.
They respectfully declined the offer, ‘No way, Sir!’ Soaked to the skin, marching in the pelting rain of a tropical storm, they said that guarding the Tomb was not just an assignment, it was the highest honor that can
be afforded to a serviceperson.
The tomb has been patrolled continuously, 24/7, since 1930.

God Bless and Keep Them.

The Movement Of Qi And Its Association With Sleep Cycle

 

 

woman-sleeping

More often than not, we are told to swallow some pills if there is something wrong in our bodies, but that does not necessarily fix it; as there may be a deeper, more psychological issue that is manifested into the physical ills we have.

Traditional Chinese Medicine And Qi
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) says that your body runs on a clock with energy highways or meridians called ‘Qi’, which also run everywhere on Earth. The Qi in our bodies transport and keep vitals such as, blood, adrenaline, and other fluids in constant circulation, including carrying emotional elements.

So, when your body is well, it means that your body’s Qi is flowing smoothly, but when you are sick or ill, it means that your Qi is being blocked in some parts of your body or is low in circulation overall.

The Movement Of Qi

Qi is said to move every two hours, stopping at different parts of the body each time, till the organ reaches its optimum level, and then it goes to the next stop. However, when one organ reaches its peak, an organ or body part in the opposite side of the body reaches the lowest level, to balance the act.

The Transfer Of Energy – Yin and Yang

Likewise, when ‘Qi’ passes through, what takes place during those two hours is, Yin – getting energy and Yang – releasing energy. Yes, this is one of the many meanings of Yin-Yang, that black and white circular symbol you so often see.

What Your Sleep Interruption Time Tells You

Based on the above information, the time at which your sleep gets interrupted can predict the probable ailment your body has. They are mentioned below:

Between 11 pm To 1 am

Organ Affected And Association

Gall bladder issues. It is usually associated with being let down or disappointment.

Solution

Need to work on accepting and forgiving yourself, life and others.

Between 1 am To 3 am

Organ Affected And Association

Liver problems. It is associated with anger or having grudges.

Solution

Need to drink a lot of cold water and balance your mind.
Accept the situation and channel your anger into something productive.
Between 3 am To 5 am

Organ Affected And Association

Lungs issues. It is related to sadness.

Solution

This means that there is a need for you to let go of these emotions, and reconnect with a more positive side of yourself.
Think of this low mood as a trying reason for you to find a higher purpose in life, and uplift your spirits.
Between 5 am To 7 am

Organ Affected And Association

Large intestine issues. It is associated with emotional blocks such as regret, guilt, lethargy, or being stuck in a constant emotional state.

Solution

Drink enough water.
Do some stretches.
Regulate the times you use the bathroom.
Eventually, set a sleeping routine.
Things are never always what they seem and if we are waking up at odd hours of the night, these could be some reasons for that wake-up call. The key is to interpret and see what these signs mean, try to get to the root of the issue and smoothen the Qi again, beyond just popping a pill to fix everything.

Did You Know – 08/31/2015

The Human Body is a treasure trove of mysteries. Did You Know:-

Lung_nodule

1. The human lungs contain approximately 2,400 kilometers (1,500 mi) of airways and 300 to 500 million hollow cavities, having a total surface area of about 70 square meters, roughly the same area as one side of a tennis court. Furthermore, if all of the capillaries that surround the lung cavities were unwound and laid end to end, they would extend for about 992 kilometers. Also, your left lung is smaller than your right lung to make room for your heart.

tickling

2. It’s not possible to tickle yourself. This is because when you attempt to tickle yourself you are totally aware of the exact time and manner in which the tickling will occur, unlike when someone else tickles you.

This is what happens to your body when you eat Pink Himalayan Salt!

This is what happens to your body when you eat Pink Himalayan Salt!

Pink salt is a salt that is found in the Himalayan mountains in a range stretching across Asia through China, Nepal, Myanmar, Pakistan, Bhutan, Afghanistan, and India.

Why is it pink?
The different hues of pink, red, and white are an indication of the salt’s rich and varying mineral and energy-rich iron content. Pink Himalayan crystal salt contains all of the 84 elements found in your body, just to name a few: sodium chloride, sulphate, calcium, potassium, and magnesium.

So, why should I use this instead of my normal salt?
Some of the benefits that you can expect by consuming this salt in place of regular table salt include:
Aiding in vascular health
Supporting healthy lungs and respiratory function
Promoting a stable pH balance within the cells
Reducing the signs of aging
Promoting healthy sleep patterns
Strengthen bones
Lowers blood pressure
Improves circulation
Detoxifying the body of heavy metals
Promote healthy pH balance in your cells
Regulate the water content throughout your body
Iodine- Natural salts, like pink salt, are rich in iodine. This means that it does not need to be artificially added in.
Less sodium- Yes, I know, that sounds strange, but Himalayan salts are mineral packed crystals. They are formed naturally in the earth made up of 85.62% sodium chloride and 14.38% other trace minerals like sulphate, bicarbonate, bromide, and strontium.

Himalayan salt can:
Create an electrolyte balance
Increase hydration
Prevent muscle cramping
Balance the Ph (alkaline/acidity) and help acid reflux.

Pink salt – Why it is better than table salt:

Conventional table salt is completely stripped of a good majority of its minerals with the exception of sodium and chloride. It is bleached, cleaned with chemicals and then heated to an extremely high temperature. Then the iodine is added in that is almost always synthetic that is quite difficult for our bodies to take in. Many studies have shown that for each gram of table salt consumed the body cannot process, your body will use 20 times the amount of cellular water to neutralize the amount of sodium chloride that is presented.

The best part is…
Versatility! That’s right, it can be used for more than just its food seasoning properties.
Air Purifier- crystal rock lamps make wonderful air-purifiers!
Bathing- throw a handful into the bath tub for a detoxifying Himalayan salt bath. The replenishing nutrients help to stimulate circulation and soothe sore muscles.
Decoration- they make lovely food decoration; you can also buy salt slabs to present your food on as well as lamps and holders!

Believe me, once you make this investment you will never go back!

4. Research shows that when a woman is most fertile her voice alters subtly and the change is enough to let a guy know its a great time for you to reproduce.
Its all down to hormonal changes that accompany a woman’s menstrual cycle. Research at James Madison University in the US involved study participants listening to recordings of women’s voices. It revealed an increase of 20% in electrical activity in participants skin and a 5 percent increase in heart rate, when a woman was at peak fertility. The changes took place within five seconds of hearing her voice, long before the listener was aware of it.

5. Danish scientists have discovered that those with blue eyes have just one ancestor. Apparently a genetic mutation took place somewhere between 6000 and 10,000 years ago that led to the existence of every blue eyed person walking on the planet today.
“Originally we all had brown eyes” University of Copenhagen professor Hans Eiberg says. “But a genetic mutation affecting the OCA2 gene in our chromosomes resulted in the creation of a ‘switch’ which literally turned off the ability to produce brown eyes”. The switch reduced melanin production in the iris, and DNA testing shows this happened at the same point for everyone with blue eyes, while people with brown or green eyes show a lot more variation in that part of their DNA

Be Healthy Be Beautiful – Pressure Points – The Feet

If you look closely there are some different pressure points on each foot. Example being the liver point below the lungs on the right foot not on the left.
This is something so beneficial for partners to do to each other while watching TV. I love it, in fact it is orgasmic especially if you are reasonably healthy and very few sore points.
The idea is to work on each pressure point indicated on the chart for ten seconds. Start on the big toe then working horizontally out to the edge of the food. Move downwards. Repeat on the other foot.

I notice on Amazon that Joseph Corvo has another book other than “Zone
Therapy
” called “Healing with Color Zone Therapy“. I will get this book as I have used the “Zone Therapy” for years and I am sure this one is equally as interesting and hopefully as useful.
Incidentally the “Zone Therapy” book is only 70-cents on amazon an absolute bargain.
