Obese is a word that is thrown around quite often in the media these days. However, did you know that you can be metabolically obese but be thin on the outside? It doesn’t even sound possible but the term professionals’ use is TOFE, which means thin on the outside and fat on the inside. Just because you are think doesn’t mean you are healthy. You can have high blood pressure, diabetes and a plethora of other conditions that are happening inside your body. While the world may not judge you because you look normal, your body on the inside is anything but normal.
How does this condition occur one might ask? If a person doesn’t exercise and eat healthy, yet they don’t gain weight, they are considered to be lucky. But, just because their metabolism is higher than someone who does gain weight doesn’t make them in a better condition. It makes sense to Sam Tabar that you can be obese on the inside, or have the same damages that someone who is obese does, but you don’t have to be heavy on the outside.
The only problem with this is that we equate healthy with skinny and that just isn’t the case. You can be very unhealthy and out of shape and be as big a round as a tooth pick. It’s really about the condition of the body more so than the weight. The weigh is just a small fraction of the puzzle.
Qnet is an e-commerce website that is based out of Hong Kong. However, it is possible to order their merchandise anywhere in the world. Their offices are also not just exclusively located in Hong Kong. They have offices in Indonesia, The Philippines, Thailand, Taiwan, and The United Arab Emirates. The company sells a variety of products, which are all personal products. They sell everything from fashion accessories to dietary products.
Qnet is somewhat similar to ebay.com in terms of how the purchases are done. All of the commerce is done online. Also, like ebay, the goods can be purchased anywhere in the world. There are no stores set up by Qnet. However, it is different from ebay.com in that Qnet produces it’s own goods. Ebay.com is essentially an online marketplace where outside sellers come in and sell their goods. Also, Qnet only sells personal products. On ebay.com, you can find anything.
Qnet not only distributes these products worldwide, it also is engaged in philanthropy. They help the needy right where they are based out of, Asia. The company has donated to causes that promote education such as the Better Nepal Foundation. Also, Qnet helps the homeless in the Madurai area of India. They have also given assistance to squatters in The Philippines. They have partnered with sports teams. One such team is Manchester City, England’s football team. Another is the Marussia Formula One Team. There have been other sporting teams Qnet has partnered with, as well.
As a response to the Indian government’s demands of greater regulation for direct sales, Qnet wishes that there be a governmental moderating agency. This shows that the company is willing to be regulated. They do not seem to be resisting their organization being more regulated by a governmental agency. This says good things about the company. It indicates there is nothing they are seeking to hide, with regard to their sales. Check out more of Qnet’s beneficial products for yourself!
Not much different than the strain of rabies that we have been aware of for decades, but different enough to get noticed. The first new strain of rabies discovered in years was found in New Mexico recently. The discovery was confirmed by the state and federal health officials earlier this week.
Public health veterinarian, Paul Ettestad, finds the discovery exciting. Now the task is for researchers is to find the host animal for this new strain of rabies. The host animal is called the ‘reservoir’ and has yet to be identified.
This new strain was discovered last month when an elderly woman from Lincoln County was bitten by a rabid fox. Tests conducted on the fox at U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lab after the bite took place revealed the fox was a carrier of a new strain of rabies reports Dr. Jennifer Walden of AustinMDMagazine. How the fox got the rabies has not yet been determined, but New Mexico state officials assume it all started with a bat.
Tests will be conducted on the dead bodies of foxes and bats which are found along roadways and other outdoor areas to find out more about this new strain of rabies.
You would think that having the prestige, wealth and courtroom drama experience on a regular basis as lawyers often do would make them some of the happiest people around. No so say researchers. They surveyed 6,200 lawyers and found that those who held public service positions such as public defenders reported being more happy than their counterparts with high status, high income positions in prominent firms.
Florida State University law professor Lawrence S. Krieger attributes this happiness gap between lawyers to the psychological model of human happiness – the theory of the three pillars of self-determination – competence, autonomy and a connection to others. The more impressive positions did not seem to provide these factors.
Brian Torchin has noted that depression and substance abuse are struggles many in the law profession find themselves facing. A 1990 Johns Hopkins study found that lawyers were 3.6 times more at risk of depression than those in any other field. And, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that between 1999 and 2007, lawyers were 54 percent more susceptible to suicide than those in any other occupation. In Kentucky alone, CNN reported that from 2010-2014, 15 lawyers took their own lives.
George Washington University now has, with the help of law professor and former Washington law firm partner Todd D. Peterson, a voluntary program to assist students in going in the right direction for their needs with law, if at all. Students talk with practicing attorneys to get a feel of the day-to-day activities involved, along with stress handling techniques and strategies on how to remain positive. Mr. Peterson’s goal is to “do something for our students,” and produce happy, healthy lawyers.
A major new study has looked at the well known link between higher than normal levels of iron in and around the brain and an increased risk of Alzheimer’s Disease. ABC Science is reporting the study took seven years to complete and followed three groups of people with varying levels of cognitive function in a bid to determine if the level of iron in and around their brain changed with their ability to complete everyday tasks. Alexei Beltyukov (slideshare.net) has read that the study shows that those with cognitive function problems have an increased level of iron and a higher risk of suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease and memory problems.
The researchers responsible for the study claim the results could lead to a new and more successful way of treating Alzheimer’s, with the current bid to block the production of plaque in the brain failing to be successful. Instead, the researchers hope their study will see the focus of treatments switched to include the chance to block iron levels building up in and around the brain and increasing the risk of Alzheimer’s Disease progressing quickly.
The relationship between Cuba and America has been strained for years after the rise and fall of Fidel Castro. In the 1960s, Cuban to US relations were at a standstill. In recent years, the US and Cuba have begun rationalizing ways and modes of communicating amongst each other. This progress is bridging the gap between the two countries. The relationship between Cuba is looking to take another progressive step forward. Cuban scientists have recently released a drug that is claiming to be a cure for lung cancer. American scientists and doctors are hoping to get their hands on the drug in the next few months. The Cuban scientists also noted that the cancer fighting drug could also have other qualities to it. The drug is credited with completely eliminating lung cancer symptoms and sightings in patients suffering with the disease. Cuban and American scientists are hoping to get together in a bio chemical lab in order to test this drug against other cancers. Breast, prostate, and colon cancers are just a few of the cancers that the scientists want to target. The Obama administration has been working very hard to smooth over the rocky relationship between the two countries. Doctors and medical teams between both countries are presently in the works of drawing up a contract that would establish a medical relationship between the two countries. If the relationship continues to progress on the positive side. Scientists are hoping to release the drug to the public in the next few years. Boraie Development LLC are sure there is still research that needs to be done, data that needs to be collected, and test the need to be run. The future for cancer patients, Cuban citizens, and Americans is looking bright.
