In Food and Drink, Health, Teplok Good News on November 30, 2009 at 1:12 pm

Last Friday was a holy day for moslem all around the world which is called Idul Adha, the day that the moslem are going hajj into mecca. One of the interesting thing you may find in Idul Adha is some moslem sacrifice some animals such as cows, goats, sheeps and etc. Their meat will be given to the people. So, for these several days all the moslem will eat meat from those sacrifices.

And Now I will let you know what are the benefits of eating meat.

There are innumerable health benefits of eating meat, to say, for example, it serves as a fabulous source of high quality proteins, which a single vegetarian food is not able to provide. It contains all the essential amino acids that the body requires.

The red meat contains very high quantities of iron, when compared with plant origin foods. 100 grams of Liver contains 6000 mcgm of iron as against 325 mcgm in 100-gram carrots. Read further to explore information about the advantages of eating meat…

The phosphorus content present in meat gets much more easily absorbed than that present in cereals and legumes. This is owing to the fact that cereals and legumes contain phosphorus, usually in the form of phytic acid that must be hydrolyzed before absorption. Meat also serves as the main source for the intake of vitamin B12.

Those are what you can get by eating meat, so let’s make this moment brings health to our body!

After a good night sleep, we all feel the need in the morning to stretch, just a little bit.
Maybe some of us don’t really think why we experience this sudden need.

Well, the truth is that morning stretching is a great way to loosen up your muscles and get them ready for the day, as it relaxes your body while increasing blood flow.

You should really consider daily morning stretching, especially if you’re sleeping all curled up or in other odd positions.

There are many chances that are you wake up feeling like your spine has been compressed, and pain isn’t exactly your thing, right?

So, before getting out of bed in the morning, turn face down propped gently on elbows, hold for a brief period of time, and then try to get out of bed without sitting up.Don’t minimize the benefits of morning stretching.Done correctly, morning stretching prevents every day injuries and allows our muscles to perform at their maximum potential.

Plus, stretching is a very simple technique, one that does not require additional equipment or physical skills, demanding only a little bit of time.

Here are some morning stretching tips:

  1. Sitting on the edge of your bed with your feet on the floor, you bend over, reaching your hands toward your feet.
  2. Don’t forget to arch your back, and hold for a count of ten.
  3. Also, in the same position, try to rotate your head in a circle, touching your ears to your shoulders. Rotate clockwise and counter clockwise for 5 times.
  4. With a good program of daily morning stretching you can reduce your mental and physical tension, anxiety, your blood pressure will be stabilized, you can also avoid muscle and back pain, and you’ll have a more fresh start for your day.

Ebook: The Modern Books Form Those Are Good For You

In Technology, Teplok Good News on November 17, 2009 at 2:54 am

Which is easier for you, ebooks or physical books? I prefer ebooks than physical books. It’s easier to get, to read, and it’s easier to save. Some people believe that ebooks are also good for environment. As I thought the better things about ebooks than physical books. I found some interesting things. It’s benefits listed untill the 30th point, Wow it’s great. Do you wanna know? here are the copy from the source:

  1. Ebooks promote reading. People are spending more time in front of screens and less time in front of printed books.
  2. Ebooks are good for the environment. Ebooks save trees. Ebooks eliminate the need for filling up landfills with old books. Ebooks save transportation costs and the pollution associated with shipping books across the country and the world.
  3. Ebooks preserve books. (The library of Alexandria was burned and the collection ruined. Richard Burton’s wife, after his death and against his wishes, destroyed a book he had been working on for ten years. The original manuscript of Carlyle’s The French Revolution was lost when a friend’s servant tossed it into the fire.) Ebooks are ageless: they do not burn, mildew, crumble, rot, or fall apart. Ebooks ensure that literature will endure.
  4. Ebooks, faster to produce than paper books, allow readers to read books about current issues and events.
  5. Ebooks are easily updateable, for correcting errors and adding information.
  6. Ebooks are searchable. Quickly you can find anything inside the book. Ebooks are globally searchable: you can find information in many ebooks.
  7. Ebooks are portable. You can carry an entire library on one DVD.
  8. Ebooks (in the form of digital audio books) free you to do other activities while you are listening.
  9. Ebooks can be printable: and thereby give a reader most or all of the advantages of a paper-based book.
  10. Ebooks defy time: they can be delivered almost instantly. Ebooks are transported to you faster than overnight shipping: in minutes or in seconds.
  11. Ebooks defy space: ebooks online can be read simultaneously by thousands of people at once.
  12. Ebooks are cheaper to produce. Thus, small presses can attempt to compete with media giants.
  13. Ebooks are cheaper to buy.
  14. Ebooks are free. The magnificent work of Project Gutenberg, and other online public libraries, allow readers to read the classics at no cost.
  15. Ebooks can be annotated without harming the original work.
  16. Ebooks make reading accessible to persons with disabilities. Text can be re-sized for the visually impaired. Screens can be lit for reading in the dark.
  17. Ebooks can be hyper-linked, for easier access to additional information.
  18. Ebooks — with additional software and hardware — can read aloud to you.
  19. Ebooks let you tweak the style. Many ebooks allow readers to change the font style, font size, page size, margin size, colors, and more.
  20. Ebooks may allow the option for the addition of multimedia: still images, moving images, and sound.
  21. Ebooks, with their capacity for storage, encourage the publishing of books with many pages, books that might be too expensive to produce (and purchase) in paperback.
  22. Ebooks — without outrageous DRM schemes — are made for sharing. Ebooks can be quickly duplicated, and then distributed to strangers or given to your friends. Worry no more about your loaned books that will never be returned.
  23. Ebooks empower individuals to write and to publish, and in this way help to challenge “the crushing power of big publishing”, that excludes so many authors from the New York City publishing circus. Publishing can move from the impersonal and profitable, to the personal and pleasurable.
  24. Ebooks — thanks to the simplicity and speed of publication and feedback — allow authors to experiment in many themes and styles.
  25. Ebooks posted online encourage comments, corrections, and feedback — which eliminates mistakes and improves accuracy — especially important when dealing with scientific and technological issues.
  26. Ebooks allow publishers to publish (and readers to read) works by a larger number of authors, and works on a wider variety of topics. Critics of traditional book publishing (such as Jason Epstein and Andre Schriffin) state that economic pressures have reduced and limited the number of authors and topics that traditional publishers will now produce.
  27. Ebooks defeat attempts at censorship. All these works were banned: Analects by Confucius. Lysistrata by Aristophanes. Ars Amorata by Ovid. Pro Populo Anglicano Defensio by John Milton. The Scarlet Letter by Hawthorne. Wonder Stories by H.C. Andersen. Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman. The Kreutzer Sonata by Leo Tolstoy. The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, and Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain. Ulysses by James Joyce. … Many of these books were confiscated, burned, or denied availability in libraries, bookstores and schools. Ebooks guarantee that readers maintain their right to read.
  28. Ebooks help paperbook publishers to sell paperbooks. Cory Doctorow has explained that the giving away of ebooks, for free, has helped to sell the paperback editions of his stories and novels.
  29. Ebooks are evolving. As technology develops, ebooks may contain new features. For example, a book of recipes may contain a recipe calculator to figure how much maple syrup is needed to bake 200 cookies. An ebook that prepares you for the GRE could include an interactive test. An ebook about politics might allow you to click a link and register to vote, or send an email to a Congressman that tells him he is not a good environmental steward.
  30. Ebooks are good for paperbook publishing. By setting an example for diversity and freedom of expression, ebooks may motivate the stagnant book publishing industry towards the renewal of small presses, the end of the blockbuster-bestseller publishing mentality, and a healthier balance between the needs of commerce and culture.

Reading or Writing Poetry? Don’t You Know That It’s Good?

In Activity, Psychology, Teplok Good News on November 12, 2009 at 5:16 am

Do you love to read any poetry? I do love it. Most of people love it, no matter if it’s men or women, young or old, kid or adults, the poetry is so universal. But do you know what you can get by reading or writing any poetry? You should know it. Its beautiful words can affect us so much good things to our mind.

Here they are:

  1. Poetry helps you to know things more fully. When I turn things over to put them into verse, I often find that I have to shift my perspective, usually to see more closely. In a poem of gratitude, Amen, I was thinking about how happy the spring had arrived. I sat by the lake thinking of all that was going on. I passed beyond the big things moving closer and wider to see a broader picture than had originally come to mind.
  2. Poetry commands your attention. There’s reading and then there’s reading. You can’t skim a poem and get what the writer sets forth for you, which is not the whole of it. The rest is filled in with a big part of who you are. Really, when you think about it, anything you can comprehend is understood from the context or frame of reference you have. Poems leave a little more room for you in the verses.
  3. Poetry can sustain good conversation. Two people can read the same poem and get very different things out of it. I’ve had some really interesting conversations around poetry. In fact, one of the poems I wrote called What Could I Lose brought a woman to tears, whereas it made me smile when I wrote it. After the reading she spoke with me and made me understand where the poem transported her.
  4. Poetry writing asks you to dig deeper. It feels like Twitter sometimes. Poetry makes no restrictions on the number of characters you use, or the words. However, you work to tell your story, to convey your thoughts and emotions, reflections and opinions. And you do this in verse form instead of prose. One of the shortest poems in my book Partly Cloudy didn’t make it the the table of contents and yet it got a lot of feedback, both commiseration and query of What led you to feel that way?

That’s all what I know! So you have known that behind the beautiful words there are so many beautiful advantages.

Do You Use Pillows When You Sleep? Keep Using It!

In Activity, Health, Teplok Good News on November 11, 2009 at 7:31 am

It is a very comforting feeling to have just the right pillow to rest an achy, tired body on. In addition to providing comfort, the right pillows can also provide the necessary support for the neck and spine—alleviating or preventing many common forms of back pain and neck pain.

Main benefits of pillows

Use of a pillow while sleeping has two main functions:

  • Support: From a physical perspective, pillows prop up the head, neck and shoulders – keeping them in alignment, relieving pressure and counterbalancing the points in the body.
  • Comfort: From a more subjective perspective, pillows create a feeling of comfort, which aids in getting a good night’s sleep and feeling well rested.

Morning Breakfast, It’s Good to Do!

In Activity, Food and Drink, Teplok Good News on November 4, 2009 at 12:05 pm

Everyone has heard the familiar cliché, “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day,” but how seriously do you actually consider it when planning your morning routine?

Most teens and adults find a variety of excuses for skimping on breakfast or skipping it entirely each morning. “I’m not hungry in the morning.” “I don’t like breakfast foods.” “I’m trying to lose weight.” “I don’t have time,” or “I’d rather sleep those extra few minutes each day.” The list could go on.

However, recent studies suggest more strongly than ever that the benefits of eating breakfast far outweigh the excuses that most of us give for skipping it.

For example, how often do you find it hard to get to school on time and then, once there, to concentrate for the first few hours? Well, a recent Boston study examining the effects of breakfast on 100 elementary students found that eating breakfast improves academic performance, punctuality and attendance. In addition, children who skipped breakfast on a regular basis experienced more behavioral problems than those who did not.

Another similar study found that children who do eat breakfast are more likely to meet the rest of their nutritional needs throughout the day; therefore, they have a healthier diet overall than those who skip breakfast.

Some may think that not eating breakfast will help them watch their weight or cut out a few “extra calories” in their diet. However, studies prove that eating breakfast can actually help maintain or even lose weight. Eating breakfast in the morning stimulates your metabolism for the day, and it also stabilizes blood sugar levels, which regulate appetite control.

With all these benefits, one finding is common throughout the studies:A healthy, nutritional breakfast is the most important thing!

Some ideas for making your own quick and nutritious breakfast before heading to school include:

• Yogurt mixed with granola and fresh fruit

• Whole-grain cereal topped with low-fat milk and a sliced banana

• Frozen whole-grain waffles with fresh berries and a scoop of cottage cheese on the side

• Whole-grain toast or bagel with peanut butter or cream cheese and a piece of fruit

• Toast with jam, a fried egg and a small bowl of fruit salad

In addition, keep the following pointers in mind while planning your morning menus:

  1. Try to include fruit, grains and protein each morning.
  2. Find whole-grain cereals, breads, muffins and waffles that include little or no refined sugars.
  3. Fresh fruit is nutritionally superior to canned fruit, and apples and bananas are available all year.
  4. If you do not like typical “breakfast foods,” then be creative! Have a peanut butter and banana sandwich, a homemade smoothie or even leftovers from last night’s dinner!

Remember, tomorrow morning you may not feel like taking the time for breakfast before you leave for the day. However, if you take just a few minutes to eat something nutritious and filling, you might do better on that test in first-period Algebra, you probably will not be ravenously hungry long before your lunch period comes, and your diet for the day may very well be healthier overall!
