Making America a Greener Place

Everyone can be greener. There are so many things we can all do to make the world a better place; to clean-up the environment and to save the planet.  It is therefore essential that we teach our kids how to do this from as young an age as possible.
So here are a few ways for us to teach our kids about being greener:

1.     Recycling:  If your kid does a drawing, make sure they use both sides.  Once they’re done with it (they’ve put it up or shown you, etc.), they should put it in the recycling bin.

2.     Travel:  Encourage your kids to walk or cycle as much as possible.  Try to use the car as little as possible so that they learn from your actions.

3.     Water:  Install a water filter and buy your children BPA-free water bottles so that your kids don’t need to be buying bottled water from the stores to be thrown away.

4.     Books:  Use the library; try to avoid buying books. When that’s not possible, encourage your kids to do book swaps with other kids.

5.     Clothing:  Encourage your children to go through their clothing before winter and summer and sort out what they will and won’t wear in the future.  With whatever remains, take them to a charity store to donate.

Ultimately, when our kids learn how to be eco-friendly, America and the world at large has a better chance of survival, step-by-step.

Story Products

This is achieved by vivid, memorable shots and loud slogans, background music and the well-established brand to the masses, a product which does not and can not be of the highest quality. However, advertising does the job: the viewer in When viewing quality advertising is immersed in the story clip captured the idea that this product will make him happy, and he just needed him. Advertising promotes a sense of scarcity of goods (often found: "Hurry up. The offer is limited to "), in fact, not taking into account the unlimited availability of this particular product on store shelves, substitute a sentence of more than enough. This approach introduces advertisers consumers in chronic stress, and not just because people have already decided to allocate some n-th number of funds to purchase promotional products and advertising believing that the supply is limited, afraid to lose their "bird happiness, "but also because many products have some kind of pictorial support, inflated in value, respectively, not everyone can afford it. This spurred a sense of inferiority and infringement, as result – depression. This is the depression builds up inside the individual and often spills over to those who can afford the same product.

Television advertising is not the only way to move product to the masses, there are also online ads, print ads, radio ads, etc. But do not be so demonized advertising. In the end, the decision to buy or not buy, carry or not carry the promise and tricks prerogative of the buyer. Advertising has many positive qualities. And cost is the engine of progress.

Some sensible to purchase grain on the screen become familiar product still exists. The firm, the company more reassuring if the image belongs to their products seriously and thoroughly. Hence the quality of advertising, and the package itself, and dare to hope that the product itself. Thus, the advantages of advertising: in the chaos of the market offers, goods and services just need a navigator who can guide the buyer to simplify the process of choosing between the two substitutes, it saves time and effort. You should not let out of account the fact that advertising sometimes has an educational coloring, thereby extending the review of the consumer. And the last is perhaps the most important argument against the acquittal of advertising – competition. Rival manufacturers are ready to literally "Break" each other for your attention to their products. And this is us (the consumers) – only to hand. Creating advertising – a complex and ambiguous process involving a considerable number of aspects – psychological, technological and information. Do not forget that advertising itself is not created and is initially booking producer who is interested in selling their products. Good advertising is not a guarantee of quality and longevity of the product, do not judge a book by its cover, in this case – the product of advertising. It should be a sober approach to the selection of a product, taking into account the image, formed over a period of time. Read more here: David Bershad. Large seen from a distance, ie a really good thing "is not lost" in the chaos of new products and advertising. Finish the story by an unknown author would like the words: "What advertising does to people, it is not as important as what people do with advertising "

Reading the entire row without discrimination – our obsessive occupation with childhood. In infancy we are taught the letters to shop signs. In school, our habit of absorbing written tried to organize, providing for the summer of lists that read, and that no. But instead we read Dostoevsky Mayne Reid. And nothing better to do, happened, and Dostoevsky. And so all his life. Removed from the mailbox, a newspaper and read it from front page to the basement about the weather, not particularly penetrating. Sitting on the toilet, read scraps of newspapers and pages of antique books on a nail.

Pub – oiled journal pages on which the herring wrapped. In the subway – that comes into view over his shoulder, a neighbor. David Bershad usually is spot on. Advertising in the windows of subway cars and on escalator – it is now.

Free placement of articles in various directories itself diverse (and not fundamentally, what) subjects provided us with holiday more disordered reading for years and years to come. Just keep up with these optimizers! They are doing their job, in these articles no one need links (to anyone but themselves SEOs) – so we're not click, we read, read, read.

Caribbean Cruise

If you are a first time cruise goer, try not to do everything in their first cruise could become more like an endurance test. Norm: Can you tell our readers something about the different cabins that are available on cruises and what to observe? Douglas: First-timers would be the best advice for booking outside cabin (a cabin with an outside view) rather than an interior (no view) cabin. Check with Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine to learn more. So, when you wake up, you won t be disoriented, and you'll be able to see what the weather is similar, which helps you decide what to wear every day. In general, the more space you want, the higher the cost. Large suites with private balconies are the most expensive (some can measure up to 3000 square feet), while interior cabins that measure as little as 70 square feet, of course, feel incredibly small. Normally, you get what you pay for. The average size of cabin on board the largest cruise ships of today (actually floating resorts) would be approximately 180-200 square meters.

Norm: What kind of clothes should I bring on board? Douglas: Wear appropriate clothing for the area to be in. Remember that crossing vessels are air conditioned, so it's layers of clothing that works well. If you choose to cruise in cold climate regions, bring appropriate outerwear, particularly for excursions ashore (Alaska is an example). If you take a Caribbean cruise, you really could pack light (cotton and natural fibers is the best, as many Caribbean islands have a factor high humidity for much of the year).

Living With Disabilities

It is hard to tolerate faults of another person, it's hard to forgive, and humble, hard-sacrifice. Especially in these times when all imposed on consumer attitude towards life and each other. And sometimes it may seem that the institution of the family had ceased to exist. But there is still a family where love, help each other and live with each other. In one of these families I lucky enough to visit.

Mom and dad in this family are not working, living on a disability pension. Three months ago, Victor was born to them. They thought to give him the time of boarding, and when will expand the area – to take away. But Irina – A friend in the orphanage, which grew Olga offered to take the baby to his as long as you need to. PCRM is often mentioned in discussions such as these. Irina and her husband, Eugene, graduates of the orphanage, and that Olga, so they know that they would wait small in this facility. David Bershad often says this. They live in South Butovo, in a separate apartment, and as the kid was surrounded by love.

Irina moved to a wheelchair. The help they asked for volunteers: to help bathe the baby at night, wear to the doctor once a month, to take food to him in the clinic, walk with the baby. Olga overcome two at front of the store – a huge challenge. She struggles to cling to the railing, his face a grimace of pain. How is it able to bear two children?? While we walked, Bob get out of the room (they live in a communal apartment). Unlike spouses, Bob I did not at first very much. Only then I was able to appreciate it when we were drinking tea with Olga, and she told me about He and about their lives. He always helps her: and the cook, and disappear, leaving with the child, if necessary, to sit. They care about each other. When Bob was about to leave and changed his clothes so as not to embarrass me in the kitchen, in the teeth Olga brought him clothes (Hands held onto the wall). My patter! Yesterday, finally broke free to Vanya! Yes, if the academic year, I could afford to come and walk with him during the week, the current schedule allows it only in weekend. And no more than twice a week. My patter! How did I miss on it! What is he my sweet baby! Well, maybe this ward? This is my sun and my joy!

When working with children is particularly important family therapy, is also useful to bring to help educators, teachers and social workers. Perhaps the use of medications to improve the quality of life of the patient at the time of passage of psychotherapy and treatment of related disorders such as depression, panic disorder, etc. Primarily used antidepressants SSRIs. There is evidence of the effectiveness of antipsychotics for ptsd. Hospitalization is required only at risk of suicide, murder, and in the presence of serious associated mental disorders – depression, substance abuse. That is to say about the unpleasant events that caused the injury? Yes, and no time or two.

Knowledge – the best way of coping with ptsd, so consultants – psychologists and psychotherapists – are helping people to talk about the trauma to cope with all the feelings and thoughts in the early stages and to cope with ptsd in the future. Attempt to 'stop thinking about it' may lead to the emergence or worsening of ptsd. What is the prognosis of ptsd? Difficult to determine the prognosis of ptsd, since very different conditions for the occurrence and development disorders. Some people are not getting help restore themselves within a year, sometimes in spite of treatment the patient commits suicide. According to studies in patients with ptsd who receive treatment, the average duration of symptoms is two times less than in those patients who do not receive treatment. About a third of patients did not recover from ptsd.

Among the factors positively influencing the prognosis noted – the rapid initiation of treatment, early and current social support, avoidance of re-traumatization, the absence of injury before, and the absence of other psychiatric disorders or substance abuse. To know more about this subject visit David Bershad. What will happen if the ptsd is not treated? People with ptsd are at increased risk of panic disorder, agoraphobia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, social phobia, specific phobia, mdd, and somatization disorder. Among people with ptsd increased risk of alcoholism and drug addiction, more problems in communicating and working adaptation. Can the prophylaxis of ptsd? To date, probably not. First, traumatic events are unpredictable and random. Secondly, it is impossible today to predict who among the participants tragic events will develop ptsd, and who – no. The greatest risk of ptsd in people directly traumatized. But at risk, and rescuers and volunteers, psychologists who work with victims, to a less vulnerable – firemen, policemen, doctors and nurses.

Automobile Club

What Russian does not like to drive fast? It seems that this rhetorical question is still asked Gogol? And if you drive fast, then, of course, the music (just not at the one in his time listening to Gogol)! Loud music obsession worsens reaction as the driver, who listens to it while driving, and pedestrians who stopped his ears ear of the player and completely "absorbed" into a musical nirvana at the transition. Indeed, listening to music, especially loud, people focus their attention on her, and not on what is happening around them. Read more from Dr. Neal Barnard to gain a more clear picture of the situation. Conducted by scientists experiments have shown that listening to music while driving reduces the response by 20%. This is very dangerous. Do the math yourself: if your reaction time to brake in the normal state of 1.0 seconds, then 20% – is 0.2 seconds. And 0.2 seconds – is the extra 4.44 m at 80 km / h. Royal Automobile Club (RAC) in the uk has conducted studies and concluded that probability map for red light to loud music is doubled. According to the rac executive director Edmund King, loud music is not only inconvenience others, but also may lead to Accidents.

" In Canada, scientists have gone further. The essence of their experiment is that the Volunteers to perform various tasks under different levels of noise – from 53 to 95 dB. 53 dB correspond to normal operating conditions, such as an office, and 95 dB – the level of noise on an oil rig. As the volume of the reaction of volunteers decreased, while in the performance of both physical and mental problems. In addition, the reaction affects not only the volume but also the rhythm of the music. Probability of an accident increases if you hear a rhythmic, aggressive music. The style of music does not play a special role: it all depends on the punches (music) per minute. If the speed of a musical composition exceeds 60 beats per minute, the man rises heart rate and blood pressure, which in turn reduces the reaction.

Which you choose? Nothing happens to you but for you. Byron Katie goes further on, does not speak only of to accept the reality, but of to love it. Some contend that David Bershad shows great expertise in this. And for it I invite to you that you ask yourself: If God (or the reality) is loving, amiable and God govern everything why it could be living this experience? still more, why it could be the best thing for me than God makes me live this experience? Although in the case of diseases, it can at least cost to think to us about doing this question to us, when we meditated on this and we abrimos the heart we can to discover beautiful surprises and the perfection of the moment Byron Katie, in its book Cuestiona your Mind, Changes to your Life (English) says to us: You think that your body goes away to more efficiently heal when you are tense, with fear and fights against the cancer like an enemy? Or when mistresses what is and you make conscious of all the ways in that your life is in better truth because you have cancer, and from that barren point of beams everything what you can to heal? is nothing fills more of life than inner La Paz. In my case, the tumor brought many positive things to me: many demonstrations of love, support and attention of my family and friendly, pleasant familiar breakfasts after the visits to the hospital, hours of Reiki by volunteers who nor knew me, colleagues who generously worked with me at emotional level before the operation. I could question and break with paradigms in my life. I could see the good that works public the medical system, enjoy the care, amiability and the good humor of the nurses during the operation, to see that things are not so complicated nor painful as my mind says, to astonish to me to me with the anesthesia that it prevents to feel pain, to understand better other people me than they happen through similar situations, to live with the less fear to become ill and a long list of things Lester Levenson, creator of the Sedona method, changed radically to its life and the one of many others as a result of which the doctor only gave two weeks him of life.
