And Let There Be Light

When I first bought my home, the living room only had one light, and it was at one far end of the room. Whoever built the home didn’t think that people in the rest of the room would like to enjoy some light while they sit. I had lamps in the other side of the room to provide some illumination. I decided to install a light socket in the dark side of the room. I used a home improvement book to guide me, but I became confused midway during the procedure, and called an electrician in Passaic County NJ to finish where I left off.

I was doing pretty well with the installation until I reached the internal wiring of the home. Up until that point, I had simply measured and cut a hole in the ceiling for the wiring to come through. Continue reading ‘And Let There Be Light’ »

Another option for business funding is to get a low interest personal loan and with a small loan, you will have to have an excellent credit rating score and a sound business plan.

Doing the Right Things Early on is Important

I made excuses every time my mom told me that I needed to see a dentist. I told her many times that I would go see one after I paid this bill or that one. I would tell her that I would do it after I finished a particularly hard semester or after my internship. I was putting off and that was a mistake. I ended up needing to look for someone who can do wisdom teeth removal in Singapore because of my continual excuses. Had I done what my mom gently urged me to do so many times, I probably would not have needed to get them removed.

My parents asked me one day how often I floss. I surprised them both when I admitted that I rarely do. I do brush once per day, and I know that is not enough. I would say that I floss once per month. That was when my mother told me that I would have all sort of problems if I don’t see a professional for regular cleanings. But in my eyes, there is always tomorrow to get things done. I put things off all the time. Continue reading ‘Doing the Right Things Early on is Important’ »

Becoming Better in My Field

When I was young, I would listen to my sing every single day. She is the one who taught me to appreciate music, and she wanted me to use my talents in ways that benefit not only me but those around me as well. I do have a really nice voice, but I knew that there was a lot I still needed to learn. That is why I started looking at a music school in Singapore, mainly because they have the reputation of being the best of the best. I knew to truly be amazing in the field, I had to learn everything I possibly could.

I looked over everything that I would learn during my 12 month enrollment, and I was really impressed. The first module is learning about the principles of audio, and I knew that this was really important to learn. Continue reading ‘Becoming Better in My Field’ »

A Special Video for Our Pastor

My church family wanted to do something really special for our pastor for his retirement. Most of us had been coming to hear his sermons for years, and we knew that we were going to miss him. He was still going to come listen to his son-in-law preach, so we would still see him often. Still, we wanted to do something really special, which is why we contacted Big 3 video production. We wanted to see how much it would cost to have them create a video of at least five or so minutes highlighting just what he means to us.

When they gave us the price quote, we were relieved because we honestly were not sure if it was going to be within our budget. It was though, and we got busy with getting everything together that they would need. We wanted to have quite a few pictures of him since he has always been prone to doing silly things, including dressing up in various costumes to get his point across.

A Gun Cover is Appropriate Even if You Are Just Target Shooting

Buying guns is expensive. My wife and I like to shoot. We are not hunters, just target shooters. If you shoot, you know how it is. You get a gun, and then you need a safe to put it in. Then you buy more guns, then end up getting a bigger safe. Fortunately, the used market is great for guns and gun accessories. I was able to sell our old safe for a good price to a neighbor. Even though we are just target shooters, we still use a gun cover for our precision rifles when at the range. I got a scratch on the barrel of a custom bolt-action rifle I like to shoot. There was a rusty bolt head sticking up on the bench I was at. When I picked up the rifle, it scratched the barrel. Continue reading ‘A Gun Cover is Appropriate Even if You Are Just Target Shooting’ »

From the Kitchen Stove Production Line to Needing Automated Case Packers

I remember when we started our business. The first thing we did was to formulate our lip balm in small batches at the kitchen stove. We would pour it into jars, tubs and tins by hand. The very first batch was just jars. We bought all organic ingredients. It was a big hit. We had one flavor. Then we started adding the tubes you twist up at the bottom and tins with slide tops. Still only one flavor. Then we mixed other organic batches with honey and had two flavors. Now we have a production line with case packers. It is amazing how far we have come.

I was thinking about it as I watched the case packers work. They are robotic with little suction cup things that lift up the individual smaller cases that get put on store shelves and put them into boxes. I guess the point in business is that if you have an idea, get started on it with something small. Continue reading ‘From the Kitchen Stove Production Line to Needing Automated Case Packers’ »

A New High School Stage with Advanced Lighting Rigs

The school redid the stage in the auditorium. They got a new lighting control box and lighting rig and safety ladders to get to all the rigging. The entire floor was replaced too. It was buckling in some areas making a trip hazard. The cost projection held us up for a while. It is not cheap to put in a new lighting system. It is typical of a stage used for performances. It has the big floodlights, remotely controlled spotlights and the lights with the color gels on them. All of it under the control of the main board in the control booth at the back of the auditorium. The main lighting cable alone cost as much as a decent used car, so you can imagine how much the whole project cost.

The kids raised a lot of money for it on their own through car washes and other fund raisers.High School safe ladder Continue reading ‘A New High School Stage with Advanced Lighting Rigs’ »

The Best Idea: Using a Moving Company in Singapore

I got a new job that meant I had to relocate. I knew that I would not have the vehicle, strength or time to move all of my belongings by myself. The best idea I had was to hire a moving company in Singapore. This idea was a life saver because there is no way I could have moved as quickly or efficiently without them.

The company showed up on time to begin helping me move. I had most of my boxes packed so the movers just had to grab the box and load it in their van. They did not waste time when it was time to load. They quickly put all the boxes in the van and were ready to go to the new place. They got to the new house even before I could get there.

They were very careful with my things. Continue reading ‘The Best Idea: Using a Moving Company in Singapore’ »

Having a healthy living is the most important factor in our life. Most of us know that living with a healthy body is the best path to live happy, to feel better, and to look better. Healthy living will lead us to the point where we can enjoy life to the fullest until we grow old and will never experience anything that might harm us or give us pain.

It is very simple and yet it provides you the easiest way on how to develop yourself up for a better and healthy person. In addition, we will provide you essential information that can be incorporated to your everyday life.

At present, most of the people in the world have fear of different diseases, and we are commonly looking for the best prevention. One of the best preventive measures to avoid disease is a healthy diet. Remember that prevention is better than cure; this famous line can be applied to anything in this world.Happy family

Eating healthy foods is a vital factor to be away from some immeasurable diseases and to have a good condition of our body. Each one of us knows that eating healthy and having a regular exercise will leads us to a healthy lifestyle. There are a lot of healthy recipes that can be seen in some health magazines.

Sometimes peer pressure can be a positive force in losing weight. If you are setting off on a new diet, let your friends know what you are doing. Ask people to check up on you to see how you are doing. Having to be accountable to others can help you avoid those habits you know you should be avoiding.

These healthy living magazines can be purchased from any bookstore in your locality as well as healthy living catalogs where you also find the guidelines of the food pyramid.

Speaking of food pyramid, it is a group of food that tells the importance of eating a variety of food that we need every single day. It shows the food that we need to eat less, and those that should be eaten much too. To name one, carbohydrates is the most important food in the pyramid that we should take because it gives us more energy for our everyday tasks, next are the fruits and vegetables group which is high in protein.

However, bear in mind that too much is not good and will have a bad result. Eat only that is necessary and avoid eating food that is more in calories and less nutrients.

A good way to lose weight is to create reasonable goals that are within your reach. Goals give you something to focus on, and when you achieve them your self-confidence gets a boost. Making weight loss goals can be a very effective way to keep yourself motivated at all times.

Cooking light is the most common way of losing weight. Many of us are suffering from obesity with the main problem of weight loss. In our present time, natural living is introduced and promoted, the natural holistic living. Life is full of challenges they say, but we can avoid too much trials, especially when it comes to our health if we are having a healthy living.

If you will notice the vegetarians, or the green living people, you will get to know that what they are practicing is something that is really amazing and fantastic-the organic living. However, the body still requires us to take proteins from various sources, such as eggs, meat, and other poultry products with only limited amount, just to sustain the food pyramid. Having all the things done appropriately, forever-young living will be achieved, slowly but surely.

Some of healthy living articles like this give healthy living tips which are very useful and helpful for everyone who wants to start and act now to gain a wonderful life today and for the next years of their lives. Here are some of the basic matters that we sometimes tend to overlook

When watching your diet, be careful of calories hidden in beverages. Water is always the best choice, but if you are having a different beverage, don’t forget to count it in your daily calorie allotment. Most people are aware of the high calorie count in soft drinks, but even a glass of juice can have a significant amount of sugar and calories.

Drink pure water for every 1/2 ounce of body weight. Determine if you are really starving or just dehydrated. Drink a glass of water before the meal but not more than a glass.

Eating healthy is taking in fresh fruits and vegetables. Instead of unhealthy snacks, replace them with fresh vegetables and fruits. Nutrition is found most on the darker ones.

Protein is muscle builder. Good source of protein are beans, fish, meat etc. Again, do not eat too much of it because to the kidney will overwork to filter them.

A sedentary life leads to health problems, one of those being weight gain. Our bodies were not meant to sit for hours, yet most of us have desk jobs that make us sit for most of the day. Sitting for that long can also lead to back problems. So every hour, stand up and move around for a few minutes. Go get a drink of water, use the restroom or talk to a coworker. It will help you boost your metabolism. Your body will thank you for it.

Starch should be avoided because they are sugar; among them are white bread, potatoes, French fries, and instant oatmeal. Instead, try the grains.

Practice a regular exercise. Make a plan that you can perform without missing even a single session because of laziness. This will increase the metabolism of your body.

Fasting is not a good idea. Instead of the three big meals, replace them with 5 smaller meals in a day.

One simple, yet effective tip for losing weight is to eat more fruits and vegetables. Fruits and veggies are nutrient dense and fill you up quickly while also providing essential vitamins and minerals. Replace some of the breads and sweets in your diet with these items and watch the pounds drop off. Don’t just add the fruits and veggies or your diet won’t change much and you’ll just be adding calories!

Fiber is good because it controls the increasing rate of cholesterol within the body. You can find them in legumes, fibrous fruits like pineapple and whole grains.

Fatty acids are good to the body too. So, include them to your healthy living diet. They can make good nails, skin, and hair.

There are some simple yet essential ways to have a healthy living. You can practice them anytime to improve the overall health of your body. If the body is in good condition, the good metabolism will result to good digestion, will result to better flow of the blood, and will give us more energy to perform our daily tasks.

A great way to help you lose weight is to slowly start adding healthier alternatives each day. Going headfirst into a diet will likely result in failure. By slowly becoming accustomed to healthier foods you’ll be more likely to stick with your diet and you might learn to savor these new foods.

It is a chain of organs and system, and if they all work perfectly, the brain will work properly too, to help us think well of better ideas. You can look and feel better when you perform a healthy living.

Eating a Raw Food Diet

Eating a raw food diet is essentially a way of eating that does not involve the heating of foods. Part of the premise lies in the fact that heating foods above 118 degrees fahrenheit destroys their inherent food enzymes, a vast majority of vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and their all important life force.Eating a Raw Food Diet

Chemical Changes in Cooked Foods

Heating foods radically changes their chemical properties making them less “recognizable” in once ingested. For instance, heating an egg renders into a solid mass whereas it began in a liquid, gelatinous. This occurs because the heat of frying or boiling denatures the protein structure within the egg, essentially making it more solid. As a result, this heated egg is now much more difficult for the human digestive tract to break down.

Another process that occurs with cooking foods is known as glycosylation. This is when sugar literally attaches to protein molecule. Glycosylation has been linked to the premature breakdown of the body’s cell and many other undesirable health conditions.

If you care about someone who needs to improve their nutrition, you have a challenging road ahead, but you can make progress and you should try. If you live with someone who is overweight or otherwise unhealthy, you can approach the subject in a loving way. You can introduce small changes, like substituting Splenda for the sugar, in the sugar bowl. You can gradually work down from whole to 1% milk and you can switch from white to whole wheat bread. Even if these changes don’t change your loved one’s weight, that person will be getting more solid nutrition and will be in better health.

The Importance of Raw Food Enzymes

The reason that the nuatral food enzymes are so important is that our bodies have only a limited ability to produce its own enzymes. Bear in mind that our bodies produce metabolic and digestive enzymes. The latter are used to breakdown foods whereas the former are essential to every single reaction in the body. But the problem is that we only produce a finite number.

When you eat cooked foods, you force your body to use more of its own enzyme reserves to digest them. Overtime, this is just like continually withdrawing money from your bank account without making any deposits. Eventually, you will run out of enzymes!

Try being a vegetarian at least one day a week. A vegetarian is in some ways healthier than being a meat eater. Even if you are not ready to make a leap to complete vegetarianism, you can get some of the benefits of a vegetarian diet by taking a break from meat completely one day every week.

When you have no more enzymes, you no longer have any life – it’s that simple.

Eating raw foods help you make more “deposits” into your enzyme bank account, allowing your body to preserve its own precious enzymes for more important uses such as breaking down problematic cells, immune complexes, and more.

What Can You Eat on a Raw Food Diet?

Milk is the best form of liquid protein you can give you body. Packed full of protein, vitamin D and other important nutrients, milk is a natural, affordable drink, that everyone should take advantage of. Instead of using protein shakes to bulk up, consider drinking two or three glasses of milk every day, instead.

A raw food diet is mainly vegan for the simple reason that it isn’t healthy or advised to eat raw animal products. Therefore, a raw diet contains no dairy, meat, or other animal products. Other than that, the choices are endless. Most raw foodists have diets that consist of vegetables, fruit, nuts, and seeds.

The amazing part is that the possibilities are truly endless with raw foods. Many people think of not being able to eat meat or wheat as a huge limiting factor. But the fact remains that processed, dead foods are dangerous to your body and there are tons of delicious and nourishing raw food recipes that will give you so much more than you can possibly imagine.

My Own Raw Food Experience

A great nutrition tip is to customize your diet to your body type. Not everyone has the same body type. Some people are more sensitive to carbohydrates and will gain weight just by looking at them, while others can eat anything they want and will never gain any weight.

I started following a predominantly raw food diet in 2007 and it literally changed my life. From improved skin complexion to having more energy and mental clarity, I can’t tell you how much better you can look and feel by eating the way nature intended for you to eat.

Growing up on dead foods like wheat, dairy, and meat literally destroyed my body and at the young age of 17, I lost my hair to Alopecia as a result of my immune system which had gone hay-wire and began attacking itself. Again, this was caused by years of abusing my body with foods that it was allergic to.

However, since eating a raw food diet, my health has never been better. My hair has returned (although I keep my head shaved because I like it like that now) and I have more energy than a teenager on red bull!

To lower the amount of tissue damage done by free radicals, include copper in your diet. Superoxide dismutase, an enzyme essential in removing free radicals from the body, is dependent on copper to function properly. A copper deficiency severely limits your body’s ability to fight free radicals. Foods high in copper include cashews, sweet potatoes, and oysters.

That’s why I wrote Eating for Energy. If you’d like to experience the same kind of health and vitality then I urge to make the raw food diet more apart of your lifestyle!

Best Tattoo Artists in Orange County

I have an idea for a really awesome tattoo, but I think that it is going to be kind of hard to draw, and so I want to look for Orange County tattoo artists that are really skilled, and come highly reviewed, so that I can make sure that I go to a tattoo artist that is going to be capable of doing a good job. I will be pretty disappointed if the tattoo does not turn out the way that I want it to, so that is why I am going to go through the effort of searching online, and reading some reviews, before deciding on a place to go to get this tattoo.

I actually came up with this idea for this tattoo design from a dream that I had, and so that makes me just think that it was meant to be, and that I am supposed to have this tattoo. I am working on trying to draw out the design, but I am not a very good artist, and so I can’t really get it down on paper the way I want. Hopefully, I can work with a good tattoo artist, and have them come up with a design that is closer to what I have in mind.

That would be pretty awesome, because I got my tax refund not that long ago. Well a couple of months now, but I have actually been disciplined with it for once, and it has just been sitting in my savings account until I figured out what I should do it with. I think this is the thing though, and I really want to get this tattoo soon, before any of the details fade from my mind of how I want it to turn out. So I will start looking around online.

Why Eat a Raw Food Diet?

If you’re reading this article, you may be wondering about the benefits of a raw food diet, right? Well, the benefits of eating more raw foods are numerous and once you understand them you’ll probably wonder why you haven’t eaten more raw in the past. You’ll also think twice about eating dead cooked foods ever again.raw-food2

Raw Foods Give You More Energy

I don’t think I know of a single person who eats at least 80% raw foods who doesn’t enjoy far more energy than the average person. I know that when I transitioned away from eating a diet made up of breads, dairy, and cooked foods, and adopted more of a raw foods diet, my energy went through the roof. And I’m not talking about the quick surge you would get from an espresso but rather long-lasting energy that enables you to do more with less.

For instance, eating raw will allow you to sleep less and have far more energy than you ever thought possible. When I’m eating at least 80% raw, I can easily function on just 4-5 hours of sleep. I literally bounce out of bed and don’t require any naps throughout the day. Oh yeah, did I mention that I workout every single day as well? Sometimes, even twice!

Be aware of how many nutrients are lost in the processing of your food. A whole-grain wheat bread is a much better choice than a multi-grain processed bread, for example. Even items that seem to be high in good foods, such as a bowl of vegetable soup, are not as healthy as an unprocessed counterpart.

Energizing Enzymes

There are several reasons why a raw food diet will give you more energy. First, raw foods are rich in food enzymes. Enzymes are required for every single reaction in the body. Unfortunately, our bodies only have a finite number of these enzymes, so when we run out, we run out of life! To add to this, when you heat foods above 118 degrees fahrenheit, you destroy the food enzymes that are naturally present in all raw foods. Therefore, if you eat a predominantly cooked foods diet, you’re not getting enough food enzymes, which means that your body will have to produce and use more of its own to digest and metabolize your foods.

The more energy your body needs to divert towards digestion, the less energy you will have for other activities. You will feel more lethargic and tired as your body is trying to breakdown “dead” foods and figure out what to do with them.

To help you make the best nutritional choices, always read the labels before buying pre-packaged foods. These labels clearly lay out the positives and negatives of the item you’re about to eat, including such important factors as calorie content, saturated fats, sodium, and vitamins. The ingredients can also be helpful if there’s a specific food item you need to avoid.

So, the food enzymes inherent in raw foods are a big reason for boosting your body’s energy. They are the spark plugs and are intricately related to the next property that make raw foods so energy-boosting.

Life Force

When raw foods are left intact, they are also known as living foods. They are called “living” because they carry an incredible amount of life force.

Eat nuts as a snack everyday. These healthy little gems are packed full of good fats and plant sterols that can lower your cholesterol. They are low in fat and an easy item to eat on the go. Serving sizes for these snacks can be easily measured by handfuls.

Now, since every living being has an aura or energy field illuminating from their body, which foods do you think would enhance yours? High energy raw foods or cooked foods that dead? I think we both know the answer.

As I like to say, “eat alive and you will thrive”.

Weight Loss and Beautiful Skin

Be sure that you are getting enough Vitamin C in your daily diet. Vitamin C is essential in strengthening your immune system so that your body can fight against infections effectively. It has benefits in the prevention of heart disease and the healing of tissue injuries such as burns. Vitamin C promotes the making of collagen, which is important in skin repair.

The other highly sought-after quality of a raw foods diet is its ability to help you lose weight and beautify your skin. Almost all raw foodists have reported losing weight they could never lose. At the same time, they notice an instant improvement in their skin. They look younger and have a natural glow that comes about because of the “living” nature of raw foods, their abundance of enzymes, and of course the plethora of nutrients that are ingested when eating more fruits and vegetables.

You will find it easier to lose weight on a raw food diet because your getting more nutrients and, therefore, your body won’t crave “dead” foods. Second, the enzymes help to breakdown the foods you are eating and excess energy and fat stores in your body. Third, raw foods are water-rich, which helps you feel more satiated, as well as hydrated.

Many of these reasons also help us explain why living foods make you look younger and beautify your skin. Enzymes, life force, water, and high quality nutrients all play a role in natural skin care.

When considering a diet that provides an adequate nutrition level, be sure to schedule regular checkups with your doctor. This will ensure not only that you are doing well with your current nutrition intake, but will also aid in making good choices for your future. Most insurance plans should make it affordable to keep a close eye on your health.

We could talk about the benefits of a raw food diet for hours but the only to truly understand them is to experience them for yourself. So why not take action today and enjoy the health, the body, and the vitality that you deserve!
