1. These new developments in the aid of hearing – a.) a new device that will be powered by our phones called “Earlens”
“Earlens” uses a laserlike light signals to stimulate the eardrum directly and offers broad frequency fr those who haven’t had success with traditional hearing aids.
b.) Treatments to prevent “hidden Hear loss” a newly discovered condition in which people can pass a hearing test but don’t hear well in noisy environments.
c.) In five to ten years from now they are getting much closer to regenerating hearing with gene therapy. Using a harmless virus, they can deliver a gene to the inner ear in mice and guinea pigs and stimulate the hair cells to regrow and regenerate hearing. They are also testing the delivery of nerve growth factors to reconnect the inner ear cells to the synapse, which could reverse hearing loss

2. That the Human body is 70% – 75% water. Some studies show 70% of pre school children drink no water at all during the day. Some have a diminished thirst mechanism and mistake it for hunger, feeding their thirst with food.
Here is a chart of the recommended consumption of water according to your weight.

3. Reasearch shows that the more grateful you are, the less anxious you tend to be.
Make a conscious effort to intentionally focus on things you are grateful or by writing them down – and the more specific you can be the better.
A pressure point for easing anxiety is Pericardium 6 – which is in the middle of the inside forearm, two and a half fingers with away from the wrist. Gently press and knead the area for two minutes, take some nice deep breaths and feel a sense of calm wash over you.

4. It takes six months to build a Rolls Royce…and 13 hours to build a Toyota.
5. Your body is younger than you. No matter how old you are most of your body is less than 10 years old, because your cells are always recycling themselves. The epidermis recycles every 2-4 weeks, red blood cells are replaced every 4 months and your skeleton turns over every 10 years
The Queensland Country Lawyer…
Joe grew up in a small town in outback Queensland, then moved to Brisbane to attend law school. He decided to come back to the country town because he felt he could be a big shot at home. He really wanted to impress everyone, so he returned and opened his new law office.
The first day he saw a man coming up the side walk. He decided to make a big impression on this new client when he arrived. As the man came to the door, Joe picked up the phone. He motioned the man in, all the while talking on the phone.
“No. Absolutely not! You tell those clowns in Sydney that we won’t settle this case for less than one million… Yes, the Court of Appeal has agreed to hear that case next week. I’ll be handling the Primary arguments and the other members of my team will provide support! Okay, tell the Attorney General that I’ll meet with him next week to discuss the details…”
The ‘conversation’ went on for almost five minutes. All the while the man sat patiently as Joe rattled instructions.
Finally, Joe put down the phone and turned to the man, “I’m sorry for the delay but as you can see, I’m very busy. What can I do for you?”
The man replied, “I’m from Telstra, (Phone Company in Australia) and I came to hook up your phone!”
One of my boys actually went to this school. I thing this is funny and so to the point.
I think I have posted it before but it still makes me laugh, so you might like to hear it for the first time , or already have heard it. its still funny.
If Maths is your subject at school this is something you should watch.
If they had taught us Math using this method, I think most of us would have enjoyed it a lot more!
New High School Teacher
A former Sergeant in the Marine Corps took a new job as a high school teacher. Just before the school year started, he injured his back. He was required to wear a light plaster cast around the upper part of his body. Fortunately, the cast fit under his shirt and wasn’t noticeable when he wore his suit coat.
On the first day of class, he found himself assigned to the toughest students in the school. The smart-aleck punks, having already heard the new teacher was a former Marine, were leery of him and he knew they would be testing his discipline in the classroom.
Walking confidently into the rowdy classroom, the new teacher opened the window wide and sat down at his desk. When a strong breeze made his tie flap, he picked up a stapler and stapled the tie to his chest.
Dead silence… The rest of the year went smoothly.
How easy are these and so quick. You can even give them to the kids for their lunch boxes. And what’s even better you can freeze for later use.
