iPhone 4 Makes A Great Music Player

We walk, we jog, we run, we mow the lawn, and we enjoy nature. (And we are all together.) I’ve always enjoyed hand held electronic devices. Why not get a used iPhone 4 smart phone and listen to music? Well I did and this is my experience.

Of course everybody must have the latest and greatest and I truly understand this. (Expert, textpert choking smokers.) To each his/her own and so on and so forth. I like music, podcasts, and radio programming. I am big on audio.

Apple is corporate and corporates must keep stock up and so forth. The idea is to innovate and grow bigger. I get it.

However, I am me and I’ve never been one to follow the crowd. (I am he as you are he as you are me…)

I wanted a player to listen to audio. So how did the iPhone 4 hold up? Actually the quality was much better than I expected. Along with a great set of headphones like Skullcandy Hesh 2 and you’re there baby. Great set of cans by the way!

As the one who mows the lawn can tell you, it can become rather mundane over time. This little phony just made the task much more rewarding. You can still hear the mower, yet the noise is more or less background noise.

And don’t you just love the commercials where the old guy is singing with the cans on? Maybe that was another commercial.

With sound like this it’s hard not to go with the flow. (Goo goo g’ joob Goo Goo Goo g’ joob)

Potassium, Magnesium, Omega 3 Food List

It appears that two of the most important sources of nutritional requirements are potassium and magnesium. According to health experts, magnesium is a mineral that many of us are lacking. Magnesium is good for the heart and stress. Believe it or not, if you suffer from leg cramps it is probably a deficiency in magnesium and not potassium.

“Magnesium deficiency is more common than most physicians believe.” Here’s the causes of magnesium deficiency.

Here’s what’s most interesting. Some super foods cover the same ground. Take spinach for example. Whoever created the famous Popeye cartoon knew nutrition in a big way. If you study nutrition, spinach is usually near the top of every list.

Another super food is the orange colored carrot. If you are a fan of juicing, carrot juice should be at the top of your list. The taste isn’t to die for, but a bit of orange juice takes some of the edge from the taste. Carrot juice benefits your body in many ways.

Everybody would agree that the Omega 3 foods benefit all that consume. And for those that are not into fish will find a few choices. There’s that spinach thing again. But there’s no doubt that fish is king in this category.

Cheers to your health mate!

How To Lose The Weight And Feel Better

It’s always the right time of year to lose the weight and feel better. But just how should we do it? Is there a magic pill we might take to accomplish our goal? Probably not. Here are a few tips I’ve gathered and I’d like to share them with you. It’s all about discipline and more of the same. There is no easy way out no matter what they say. Look to diet and exercise. And when we say diet, we mean food choices. Dieting is not good for anybody.

Seems like everything I like
Will make me sick or poor or fat
(Says who?)
►DAVID LEE ROTH — Two Fools A Minute [Skyscraper 1988]

FOODS TO AVOID
1. No soda. Period. Nada. No sugar drinks at all. Drink water.
2. No pizza or a limited supply of it.
3. No fast food. If so, make it salad or fish. Baked potato is good.
4. No burgers. Nada. Limit the beef. Try turkey products.
5. No cake.
6. No ice cream.
7. No chocolate or sweets. Maybe the occasional piece of dark chocolate.
8. No sugar or limited amounts. Try fruits instead.
9. Limit the salt intake.
10. No bread or limited amounts.

BREAKFAST
1. Oatmeal or the occasional eggs.
2. If you’re a cereal person consider Cheerios. Maybe consider shredded wheat or a bran flake.

LUNCH
1. Chicken or turkey.
2. Greens. Try broccoli, spinach, brussel sprouts, or mustard greens.
3. Baked potato or sweet potato.
4. Black beans, pinto beans, or white beans of some type.
5. Think vegetable soup.

DINNER
1. Chicken or fish.
2. Salad.
3. Finger foods low on calories.
4. Never eat after 10:00 PM.

EXERCISE, POSITIVE THINKING, AND FIND A SUPPORT GROUP
1. Walk or jog 20 minutes a day.
2. Try lifting weights or find a hobby that includes exercise.
3. Do not watch the news. Be positive and keep it real.
4. Keep the mind occupied.
5. Find a friend to share the benefits.
6. Think sports or outdoor physical activity. Bicycling is good. Cleaning house is an exercise.

TIPS
Try to have beans or greens with every lunch setting, or at least every other setting. White beans are rich in potassium. The baked potato is also rich in potassium. Spinach is loaded with potassium. All of the orange colored foods are rich in vitamins.

Here is a good rule of thumb. Stick to the perimeter of the store. This is the vital lane. Stick to the produce aisle with fruits and vegetables. Try little or no bread, because it is loaded with sugar and toxic substances. Sugar is not your friend at all. Stay away from the candy or baked goods aisle. None of it is healthy. Remember think natural and not canned. If you can’t pronounce the ingredients it’s not a good thing.

Cheating is good, but do it in small portions. Try to avoid the mindless eating routine. We’re all guilty of it.

Drink natural water and plenty of it. Twenty minutes a day of walking is good, and a brisk walk is even better. Some sunshine does a body good. If you need electrolytes, consider the Pedialyte drink. It has more bang for the buck and is more charged with the good stuff. Don’t take my word for it. Do the research.

Treating Depression With Botox Injections

Are you serious? The so called medical community is now making claims that for curing the winter blues it is perfectly safe using Botox injections. It’s interesting folks. Botox to treat depression?

What they refer to as Botox is Botulinum toxin, which is a neurotoxic protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum and related species. Did you read the word toxin?

Excuse me while I kiss the sky!

If my Wiki page is correct, then Botulinum is the most acutely lethal toxin known to man, intravenously or intramuscularly when inhaled.

“In cosmetic applications, botulinum toxin is considered safe and effective for reduction of facial wrinkles, especially in the uppermost third of the face.” Go ahead and take your chances.

Okay. So wrinkles are a natural part of aging. None of us can stop it. If there was a safe reliable way, all of us would probably jump on board. To inject a toxin into a perfectly healthy body is equivalent to jumping out of a perfectly built airplane. It does not make any sense.

Warning: “Most commonly, botulinum toxin can be injected into the wrong muscle group or spread from the injection site, causing paralysis of unintended muscles.” There can be serious side effects!

Excuse me while I kiss the sky! (Wrinkles included.)

Panlong 4-Way AV switch allows you to connect multiple video devices with AV out (such as Wii, XBOX, DVD, PS2, Cable Box, Raspberry Pi, Roku) to one set of standard yellow-white-red RCA connectors of your TV using AV cables.

The Instantiation Of Modern Empire

On Sunday December 2, 1804 the coronation of Napoleon Bonaparte occurred, marking ‘the instantiation of modern empire’.

The French Win Big At The Battle of Beachy Head (1690)
On July 10, 1690 the French executed a great naval victory over their opponents in the Nine Years’ War, namely the English and Dutch. The Battle of Beachy Head (1690) seems to be a turning point in English history, which followed the Glorious Revolution of 1688.

The Glorious Revolution involved the overthrow of Catholic King James II of England, with the aid of Protestant Dutch William III (Stuarts), Prince of Orange. Actually it was an invasion of the Dutch Republic, attempting to reduce the power of France and the absolutist Louis XIV the Sun King.

From start to end of the Nine Years’ War (1688–97), England outbuilt the French at a rate of four vessels to one.

Aftermath of Beachy Head is crucial, supposedly causing England to panic. Although the French had prevailed and upon failing to capitalize on previous opportunities, the Allies gained superiority against the French.

Consequently, on July 27, 1694, at least 322 years ago, the Bank of England was established, thus changing the economic history of England.


INTRODUCTION
Those who seek to re-write history find it a very formidable undertaking, because it has become a “vested interest” with the official historians. Any historian who refused to portray Cromwell as a savior of the British people, pointed out that his real name was Williams, and that he belonged to a small group of men who had been enriching themselves at the expense of the Monarchy and the people, while bringing a group of foreigners from Holland to batten on the British people, would not find his books recommended for use in our schools or universities.

THE PRELUDE IN BRITAIN
It is essential that we make ourselves conversant with the growth of the forces which paved the way for the establishment of the Bank of England and the debt-system. Anyone who cares to study British history during the six and a half centuries from the Norman Conquest, until the financiers arrived at the invitation of Cromwell, will find that the Monarchy did exercise its sovereign right of issuing money.

In Queen Elizabeth’s reign Britain produced some of the finest minds the world has ever seen. Both Bacon and Shakespeare have had a tremendous influence on Western civilization – particularly Bacon, to whom we chiefly owe the modern system of experimental science based on inductive reasoning.

THE FORMATION OF THE BANK OF ENGLAND
The modern banking system did not exist in Britain until Cromwell’s regime. In his history of England, Macaulay says that banking had not started at the time of the Restoration (1660). Merchants had their strong-boxes and paid out honest coin on demand.

Whatever the present supporters of the banking swindle may say, the man who was primarily responsible for the Bank of England frankly admitted what he was doing. In a plan for forming the bank which he drew up at that time, he said: “The Bank hath benefit of interest on all moneys which it creates out of nothing.”

Needless to say, the majority of the Whigs favored the establishment of the Bank. The first Governor was Sir John Doublon, a Dutchman.

The ownership of the Bank of England has always been a matter of much speculation, although its close contact with International Jewish finance is well known. In 1696 the law laid it down that stock in the Bank might be held by “any and every persons, natives and foreigners, bodies politic and corporate, who may so subscribe.”

The following interesting report in connection with the Bank of England appeared in the “Manchester Guardian” on December 28, 1839, and was republished in that paper on January 6, 1940:- “A special general meeting of the Manchester Chamber of Commerce and Manufacturers was held at their offices, Town Hall Buildings, King Street, on Thursday last, to receive a report from the board of directors on the effects of the administration of the Bank of England upon the commercial and manufacturing interests of the country. (The report of the meeting, which ran to five and a half columns, contained the lengthy report of the directors on the Bank, the concluding paragraphs of which were):

“Although it scarcely comes within the scope of their present object, the board will add a reflection upon the subject of the undue privileges possessed by the Bank of England. That such a power over the property, and, as has been seen, the health, morals, and very lives of the community should be vested in the hands of 26 irresponsible individuals for the exclusive benefit of a body of bank proprietors, must be regarded as one of the most singular anomalies of the present day – that the secret of these individuals, veiled as they are even from the eyes of their own constituents, should decide the fortunes of our capitalists, and the fate of our artisans – that upon the error or wisdom of their judgment should depend the happiness or misery of millions – and that against the most capricious exercise of this power there should be neither appeal nor remedy; that such a state of things should be allowed to exist, must be regarded as a reproach to the intelligence of the age, and as totally irreconcilable with every principle of public justice.

If instead of having been handed down to us from our ancestors, it had been proposed in the present day to create a joint stock bank, to be endowed with the powers and privileges enjoyed by the Bank of England, the common sense of the country would have revolted against the attempt to establish so dangerous a monopoly.”
