Your Feet And Toes Tell Your Heritage:
This is a fun graph I found in an article that was written based on studies by various medical centers interested in human history.I am keeping it short and to the point. It’s fun when you find out your roots,research your heritage.
So far it is pretty accurate for people I know who know their heritage. The picture is comparing 5 different types’ feet. They are labelled according to the nature of the length of the second toe compared to the big toe. It pretty much speaks for it’s self, below are brief descriptions (in case you already didn't know).

Learn The Language Of Dogs:
Have you ever wondered what your dog might be trying to tell you ,but you don't speak dog's language .There are some codes through which you will come to know that what your dog wants to tell you.I bet any dog-happy kid would love to have this in their room, so that they could learn dog language and teach their friends.
Good To Know Before You Travel:
You should know what the outlets look like on other countries.Why can’t you plug in your phone charger when you’re vacationing in New Zealand? Why is that you need a hair dryer with a NEMA 1-15 plug in the United States, but in France, your hair dryer must use a CEE 716 If you’ve ever wondered why it is that different plugs are required in different countries.We’ll also delve into which plugs are needed where and what sort of products you’ll need to buy if you’re travelling internationally.
Over the years, there have been some efforts to standardize international electrical outlets.Organizations like the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) gave it a shot in the early 1900s, but their ideas never took hold. No country would ever volunteer to give up their plug, after all, and have to tear out all their sockets.
So if you’re planning an international trip, be sure to find out beforehand what sort of electrical outlet your destination country uses. If their outlets and plugs are different from your own, you’ll need to purchase an adapter plug. You will plug your device into the adapter and plug the adapter into the outlet.
If your devices are single-voltage, you will also need a voltage converter or a transformer. Read your device’s power supply label to find out (or if you can’t find it, search for the item online ). The label on the device should indicate if a converter or transformer is necessary. The label may be attached to the back of the device or molded into the plastic of the plug (in very small print).

Most of us don’t really like to discuss things like urine or feces, but the reality lies in the fact that both of these excretions are crucial for a sound health. We may not discuss them openly but we all know that a little too much or a little too less of both or these excretions aren’t good for our health. But most of us easily flush it down without paying much attention or glancing over it to look for any abnormalities.
But then again there are a few things that are surely visible to all of us while urinating. Maybe for men it is easier to notice them when it enters the urinary bowl and for women only if they view the tissue after wiping it off. Other than that, if there is a burning sensation or pain during urination, it also triggers a thought to check what you are excreting. But then again, more physical specs are always very visible to most of us.Now what is important is to know what our urine tells about us. Well, experts say that urine is the easiest way to self-examine what goes on in your body. If there is a problem somewhere, it will show up in your excretion. The change in the smell, color and odor are direct indications of malfunctioning of our body systems.
The urine is helpful in indicating pregnancy, if you have an internal injury or problem that can’t be detected on the outside or that your intake of some scrumptious colorful berry is a lot more than it should be. Moreover, it can also indicate some Urinary Tract Infection (UTI), dehydration by the change of color of your urine, which means that it becomes darker and more concentrated, also tell if the amount of nicotine or caffeine has increased in your body, especially that of women.Normally, the urine is and should be of a pale yellow color. This is because it contains a substance called “urochrome”; a substance produced at the breakdown of hemoglobin. But urine seems to change color for many reasons; some alarming and some harmless. Go through the different colors of urines and compare yours with them:
Dark yellow: as pale yellow is the normal color of urine, dark yellow indicates that the person is dehydrating as the concentration of salts is higher than normal. Lesser the water, darker the yellow shade of the urine, so try drinking more water than usual in such a condition.
Red: basically this is varying from a shade of pink to dark red. A test can really specify if the urine contains bloods or building blocks of blood such as the hematuria. But this is a serious condition which you must get checked. It can be because of any infection in the bladder, urinary tract, or urethra. Also, cancer in prostrate parts of men or in the bladder of both gender, and strenuous exercise can all lead to urine to be red.
Brownish black: here the color also varies from brown to black. It may be form of red urine in a darker shade. But this is because of malfunctioning of the liver and conditions like hepatitis, bile duct blockage, a tumor or even cirrhosis for the Bilirubin (blood building matter) appears in the urine. But more sever conditions like Hemolytic anemia and Malenoma can also be a cause for brownish black urine.
Orange: many medicines can turn the urine orange or even treatments like Mainstay TB treatment, Rifampin, isoniazid and Phenazopyridine. Also, excessive intake of citrus juices and carrots can also be a reason for orange urines.
Purple: caused by the purple urine bag syndrome, in which bacteria colonize the catheter. The urine consists of substances of red, blue and indigo color which collectively give the purple colored urine. The only cure is to replace the catheter bag.
Blue: blue urines are produced due to the presence of Methylene blue. Though it is used in our medications, the blue urine can also appear because of blue diaper syndrome (BDS) and the hartnup disease.
Green: this is linked to the Methylene blue of the blue urine that mixes with the urochrome of tour natural pale yellow urine. Yet, a few medications such as anesthesticpropofol, Tagamet and Elavil can be the cause of this mixture or green urine. As harmless as it might seem, in rare cases does it ever showcase chances of infections in our Urinary tract.

Indian Train Kills Elephants Crossing Tracks:
A passenger train ploughed into a herd of elephants in eastern India, killing seven, including two calves, as they lumbered across the tracks in a forest, authorities said.The crash was the worst of its kind in recent memory, said Hiten Burman, forestry minister in West Bengal. Ten other elephants were seriously injured and the death toll could rise, he said.
The train was travelling at 80 kilometers (50 miles) an hour through the Chapramari Forest, near Gorumara National Park, when it struck the herd of 40 elephants crossing the tracks on Wednesday at dusk, Burman said.He said railway authorities have ignored requests from his department to have trains reduce their speeds inside the elephant corridor in Jalpaiguri district, about 670 kilo meters (415 miles) from Kolkata, the state capital.Basu, who blamed unrestricted movement of trains for the accident, said at least 50 elephants have been killed by trains since 2004 in West Bengal state.
"It is an irony that elephants are being killed by speeding trains in north Bengal on regular intervals, even though it has been declared as the heritage animal in India and an elephant calf is the mascot of Indian Railways," said Animesh Basu, a wildlife activist and co-coordinator of the Himalayan Nature and Adventure Foundation.

What is Foot Reflexology?
Foot Reflexology has become a well respected ADJUNCT to regular medical care. It is used in Hospitals, by Physical Therapists and Chiropractors to enhance MOST forms of medical treatments.It is not a "miracle" or a "faith healing" type thing. Sometimes, like other therapies, it takes a few sessions.Foot reflexology can help ease the pain of achy joints and muscles, relieve headaches and toothaches, improve the functioning of major systems of the body.
Foot Reflexology works by applying pressure at specific points on the bottom of the foot. This is not the same as acupressure or acupuncture.In fact, the only thing that is the same is that medical science can't prove how it works...they just know it does!There are over 7,200 nerve endings at the bottom of each foot. Nerves connect to every organ, every limb and region of the body through the brain and spinal column. It is thought that foot reflexology works in much the same way. Even though we don't actually work the nerve endings, the correlation of the bottom of the feet to every region of the body definitely exists. It was originally called "The Zone" therapy in the early 20th century and was successfully organized into a comprehensive therapy by a physical therapist, Eunice Ingham in the '40s. She coined the term "reflexes" when referring to this therapy.
Foot reflexology can increase the blood flow to the part of the body being worked, which in turn increases the oxygen going to that part.The increased blood flow helps take away toxins that build up in each cell of the body each day.This brings more health and vitality to the region plus adds a sense of over-all well-being. When our feet feel good, we feel good!Learn to do foot reflexology to help your family and friends feel better! Get help getting your body back to its' natural state of health by teaching your family to do foot reflexology on you!
Please realize that foot reflexology is NOT a substitute for medical treatment, you are always encouraged to seek professional medical help when needed, however, this therapy can be used in conjunction with most treatments for most conditions.Please, if being treated by a medical professional, get that professional's permission before doing foot reflexology for that medical condition. Thanks.
Maria Jose Cristerna, a former attorney and mother of four, transformed herself into the Vampire Woman through extreme body modification including tattoos,steel implants and dental work to make her teeth look like fangs as a way to deal with an abusive childhood. She currently uses her appearance as a way to bring attention to the issue of domestic abuse.
She has developed her artistic talents into a new career as a tattoo artist, and attends several industry conventions annually, including some in California.She is in her thirties, and spends much of her time raising her children. Although not the most pierced or tattooed woman in the world, her body mods have made Maria famous, and a wax likeness of her has been added to the “Ripley’s Believe It Or Not” Museum. She continues to modify her appearance, and says that her new image and its artistic components are symbols of freedom and strength.
At first people were interested in my looks because it was cool, because it attracts attention and because it’s something different,” she said. “But I see it as something good among all the bad, because I’m giving a message. I won’t be able to change the thinking of the entire world, but I’m always there to help the people that need it.”

Never Brush Your Teeth Immediately After a Meal:
- Brushing your teeth too soon after meals can seriously damage them, dentists warn
- Brushing within 20 minutes can corrode teeth
- Drives corrosive acids 'deep into teeth, dentists warn
- Waiting an hour can protect teeth
Dr Peter Alldritt, chairman of the Australian Dental Association's oral health committee says:
Fruits, particularly orange or lemon juice, vinegar, sport drinks and soft drinks, all have a very high level of acidity in them and what they do is soften the enamel.
If you then go and brush your teeth straight away you're going to damage the softened enamel.
Waiting to brush for at least 30 minutes gives your mouth time to produce enough saliva to neutralize the acidity.This saliva helps your teeth to harden and absorb more calcium, which then acts like a coat of armour. Saliva contains calcium and phosphate ions and teeth also contain these ions, so saliva acts as a reservoir of calcium and phosphate for your teeth.Saliva also contains enzymes and buffers which neutralize acid and return the pH of your mouth to neutral over time.

Truth Behind The Circus:
Eelephants learn the hard way how to become a circus performer.They used in circuses are beaten, electrocuted & abused over & over again Just to force them to do painful tricks.The disturbing picture is taken by a former trainer which campaigners say reveal the brutal reality of how elephants are prepared for circus work.In case the youngster doesn't want to co-operate, a trainer stands by with one of the sharp metal hooks used to manage the animals.
The harsh treatment of animals in circuses has spawned protests by humane societies and animal rights groups, which have focused on abusive training and handling practices, the constant confinement endured by the animals, and the dangers that animal circuses pose to the public.Training methods for animals used in circuses involve varying degrees of punishment and deprivation. Animals perform not because they want to but because they’re afraid not to. In the United States, no government agency monitors animal training sessions.

How To Read Bar Codes:
With all the food and pet products now coming from China, it is best to make sure you read label at the supermarket and especially when buying food products. Many products no longer show where they were made, only give where the distributor is located. The whole world is concerned about China-made “black-hearted goods”.Can you differentiate which one is made in Taiwan or China ? The world is also concerned about GMO (Genetically Modified Organism) foods; steroid fed animals (ex: 45 days old-broiler chicken). It is important to read the bar code to track its origin.
How to read Bar Codes….interesting ! If the first 3 digits of the bar code are 690, 691 or 692, the product is "MADE IN CHINA". 471 is Made in Taiwan .If the first 3 digits of the bar code are 00-09 then it’s made or sourced in USA. This is our right to know, but the government and related departments never educate the public, therefore we have to Rescue ourselves. Nowadays, Chinese businessmen know that consumers do not prefer products “MADE IN CHINA”, so they don’t show from which country it is made.
However, you may now refer to the bar code – remember if the first 3 digits are:
690, 691, 692 CHINA
00 – 09 USA and CANADA
30 – 37 FRANCE
40 – 44 GERMANY
Brain Damaging Habits :
1. No Breakfast
People who do not take breakfast are going to have a lower blood sugar level.This leads to an insufficient supply of nutrients to the brain causing brain degeneration.
It causes hardening of the brain arteries, leading to a decrease in mental power.
It causes multiple brain shrinkage and may lead to Alzheimer disease.
4. High Sugar consumption
Too much sugar will interrupt the absorption of proteins and nutrients causing malnutrition and may interfere with brain development.
5. Air Pollution
The brain is the largest oxygen consumer in our body. Inhaling polluted air decreases the supply of oxygen to the brain, bringing about a decrease in brain efficiency.
6. Sleep Deprivation
Sleep allows our brain to rest. Long term deprivation from sleep will accelerate the death of brain cells.
7. Head covered while sleeping
Sleeping with the head covered increases the concentration of carbon dioxide and decrease concentration of oxygen that may lead to brain damaging effects.
8. Working your brain during illness
Working hard or studying with sickness may lead to a decrease in effectiveness of the brain as well as damage the brain.
9. Lacking in stimulating thoughts
Thinking is the best way to train our brain, lacking in brain stimulation thoughts may cause brain shrinkage.
10. Talking Rarely
Intellectual conversations will promote the efficiency of the brain.
