Time affects us all. We all have to get old some day, and we all eventually start to get wrinkles on our faces. Some of us get them faster than other people. When I first started noticing that i was getting wrinkles on my own face, I began to panic a little. I didn’t think that they would come so soon, but they did, and it hit me that I was getting old. I started checking my hair for gray hairs, but I didn’t find any. I made an appointment with the aesthetic doctors in Singapore to see what they could do to get rid of the wrinkles.…Continue reading
For Type 2 diabetics who need to lose excess weight, keeping track of calories and carbohydrates can be confusing enough at home, but when you are on the move it can be downright discouraging. Self-monitoring is an important part of any weight loss program, and computerized tracking systems can help, according to a report in the Journal of Science and Technology in September 2012.
Investigators at the University of Florida in Gainesville, United States, looked at the use of computerized tracking systems as part of the two-year Pounds Lost study. Non-diabetic, overweight men and women were given four different diets high in nutrients and low in calories and fat.
A computerized tracking system gave the participants feedback about their eating plans and physical activity levels… to help them decide what to eat and what activities to perform.
Those who used the system the most often in the first eight weeks of the study lost the highest amount of weight. By week 32, the participants with a high use of the system lost 8.7 per cent of their body weight, compared to those with a low use of the system, who lost 5.5 per cent of their beginning body weight.
From these results, it was concluded self-monitoring with programs such as smart phone applications could be a help for diabetics needing to lose weight and suggested that similar programs could be useful for people with Type 2 diabetes fighting obesity.
The University of Florida’s Diabetes Center of Excellence lists some interesting computerized systems for diabetics on the go. Two of them:
- iBG Star,
even allow diabetics to download their blood sugar readings directly from their glucometer to the iPhone or iPod touch. No need to worry about typing errors.

I knew that we were losing our focus as our sales numbers were down for the third straight quarter. I knew that it was a problem we could overcome though because it seemed to be more of a problem with us than it was with the market itself. I did some online research, which is how I ended up at the verkooptraining website. I knew that I had found exactly what we needed when I started reading the testimonials from other companies that had used this training program to help with their own sales.
I liked that this company covers everything, and not just with existing customers.…Continue reading
Tv’s are quite the common thing here in America. People love watching their television. It’s no wonder either as a vast array of shows are one. Now, people are looking forward to this new model of television that is coming out later this year. This is the LG 3D TV.
Many people love the brand LG. They have used this brand for a number of years. So many people have used them, that they are ranked as number two in the world. It’s no wonder. They keep making newer and better products. So, it was no wonder when they said they would be bringing out the LG 3D TV.
The South Korea company that produces LG have high hopes for this television. In just this year, they hope to sell a good amount of these TV’s. How many is a good amount? It is said that they would love to sell about four hundred thousand or so.
Right now there are a few of them out there. They come with a good price tag. This price tag is so high, that the average consumer cannot pay for it. That is why mostly businesses have them. They can pay for them. It is said though that they would love to put one out there that has all the features and make you wear the glasses because it will be that good to the general public later this year.
If the 3D feature isn’t enough for a person as we all love the 3D screen, you will love the wide screen it has as well. It will make a nice addition to those who love to watch television from the comfort of their own home. Take it from us. You don’t want to miss out on this one.
There you …Continue reading
The HSE has reported findings showing at least half a million large good vehicle drivers experienced anxiety, stress or depression arising from their work in 2015-16. These stats are getting worse as time progresses. Currently, 30% of self-disclosed ailments at work within the transport and logistics sector are due to anxiety, stress and depression. To this day reporting mental illness comes with the risk of stigmatisation. 95% of workers suffering from mental illness who call in to report they are sick give other illnesses as the reason. Also, a majority of workers who are diagnosed with mental illnesses hide this from their employer with only 22% disclosing their diagnosis.
Why Is Mental Health Critical?
In the past, people have treated mental health as a taboo subject. You could not broach the subject of your struggles with mental health. It was seen as a weakness that you could not share. Progress is now being made with positive discussions and debate around mental health becoming a common thing. However, unless these conversations are brought to the forefront, the transport and logistics industry, specifically HGV will lose its large talent pool of drivers. This is adding to the fact that mental health-related issues use up £100billion in the UK logistics sector.
There are many factors that contribute to stress among HGV drivers. Odd working hours, long shifts, night shifts, tough traffic, strict deadlines, mental exhaustion and physical fatigue all play a part. All these will affect mental health on the job or spill over to home life. Limited time and flexibility to exercise mean the drivers lack one of the best alternatives to counter stress. This creates a difficult environment to work in leading to stress, anxiety and depression.
Gender also comes into play. It has been proven that men shy away from …Continue reading
