Weight Loss From Green Tea
There is finally one easy way to help with the pressures of weight loss. Green tea extract has been proven in studies that it increases thermo genesis and weight loss. Almost everyone knows that green tea has powerful antioxidants, but now it may help in actual weight loss from green tea extract. The weight loss from green tea is a safe alternative to traditional diet drugs in particular because it does not increase the heart rate.
There are only two ways to treat obesity and one way is dieting and the other is significantly increasing daily energy expenditure. Weight loss from green tea is due primarily to increasing, +4%, energy expenditure on a daily basis. No one knows exactly why this happens, but scientists feel that it has to do with the high amount of catechin and polyphenols that are in the green tea extract.
Green tea and weight loss is now becoming a standard in obese weight loss programs. Most overweight people suffer from hypertension or other cardiovascular problems and the findings of green tea weight loss is becoming a phenomenon. The fact that the heart rate is not stimulated, as it is when ingesting diet pills, qualifies it as 100% safe for weight loss programs. People with hypertension can relax knowing there is a safe way to increase their energy and therefore shed the pounds.
They can exercise knowing their heart rate is not going to skyrocket due to the chemicals in their diet pills and they will not be risking a heart attack. It is believed that the catechin and polyphenols in green tea extract work with other chemicals in the body to increase levels of fat oxidation and thermo genesis, therefore, the body burns more fuel.
Green tea weight loss can be done without diet pills. All that is necessary is drinking green tea on a daily basis combined with a healthy diet and moderate exercise. After a few weeks most people will notice a difference in their bodies and energy levels.
Green tea weight loss programs are starting to pop up in health clubs nationally. It is a simple, easy and inexpensive way to incorporate into a standard weight loss program. Now green tea weight loss programs are being advertised as such, Green Tea Weight Loss.
These weight loss programs tend to follow a more organic and vegetarian diet. But at least it is another choice for the overweight individual. Losing the weight is the most important issue and if green tea is the component that makes it work for you, than green tea weight loss is a success.
Caribbean Stud Poker Intro
It seems like only yesterday when this fun game started appearing in Casinos in the United States. As you might expect from the name, Caribbean Stud Poker got its illustrious start in the Caribbean. It eventually worked its way onto cruise ships and one day the game finally docked on U.S. shores.
This exciting game is now offered in just about every casino, both online and in the real world. It's usually considered a party game, because, like Blackjack, everyone is playing against the dealer.
Caribbean Stud Poker is played on a Blackjack-style table and seats multiple players. If you're playing the game online, you might be the only one playing-some online casinos are offering multi-player games now.
The layout for the game has three main betting areas. First, there's the Ante spot, which is where your initial wager goes. Next there's the Bet spot, which is why you bet to stay in the game-more on this later. Finally, there's the progressive jackpot wager slot. When you drop $1 into this slot, you're entered into the progressive jackpot.
Quick Game Play
In other articles, I'll go over the game play and strategy in more detail, but for now, let's run through the general game play of Caribbean Stud Poker.
Before the hand is played, you must enter a wager. The lowest betting limit I've ever seen in the real world is $5. You might find limits lower online. So, let's imagine that you placed $5 on the Ante spot.
Next, you need to decide if you want to be entered into the progressive jackpot. If so, put $1 into the slot. You can't be entered into the jackpot after the hand is dealt.
After all players have made these two moves, the hand is dealt. You'll be given five cards. This game doesn't have many big decisions. Unlike video poker, there are no draw cards, so these are the only five cards you'll get. At this point, you need to decide if you think your hand will beat the dealer's hand or not.
You can choose to fold now and lose your Ante wager, or you can stay in the hand and place a Bet wager. This new wager is equal to two times the Ante wager. So, if you made a $5 wager to start the hand, your Bet wager would be $10.
After all players have decided, the deal flips over his or her hand and bets are either taken or paid. At this time, any progressive winners are paid.
Time to Learn More
This article was just a quick intro to Caribbean Stud Poker. In other articles, I'll go further into detail about playing the game, including progressive payouts, game decisions, playing strategy and more.
For now, I hope I've wetted your appetite for this fun game.
Four Steps To Tripling Your Energy
Tired? Tired of being tired? You aren't alone. There are few human qualities more highly sought than energy. It determines our ability to enjoy life, to attract mates, to finish projects, to protect our families, to shape our bodies effectively, and so much more.
While there are endless specific suggestions about herbs, exercises, meditations, supplements, rest patterns and so forth that I could mention, the most important and over-arching components are relatively simple, and available to anyone with the willingness to begin.
Basically, your energy level will be controlled by three physical and one psychological factor.
A) Fitness. There are a variety of different things that contribute to the quality called "fitness," but a few of them are specific to energy level.
1) Cardio-vascular fitness. A dead minimum of twenty minutes three times a week, just to stay in the game. If you want to create a swift, powerful change, try forty minutes four times a week. Walking is sufficiently intense, if you stay in the "aerobic zone" which can be described as a level of exertion where you can't sing, but you can still talk!
2) Body-mass index. Unneeded weight is like a sack of wet cement strapped to your back. It eats up energy like crazy. Regardless of what anyone says or implies, there is only one basic way to lose fat: to change the ratio of calories consumed to calories burned. In general, this requires discipline on BOTH ends. Fat loss is a two-headed snake. If you diet but don't exercise, your metabolism can slow down to a crawl, denying you success. And if you exercise but don't eat sensibly, well, a pound of fat has about 3500 calories. An hour of running only burns about 350 calories. Do the math.
3) Flexibility. Often overlooked in the search for energy, flexibility is a measurement of tension in the body. A stiff body is like a car with its brakes on. Think how much gas your car would waste!! That gas is your energy, when you carry unnecessary tension. Most stretching activities are less a matter of "lengthening" muscles, tendons, or ligaments than learning how to communicate with your body, to learn how to breathe into tension.
4) Strength. Contrary to popular belief, strength is more in the mind than the body. It is a matter of leverage, concentration, and controlled excitation even more than it is the "size" of the muscles involved. On a physiological level, it is a matter of the percentage of your muscle fibers you can recruit at a given moment. Weight training, or body-weight exercises like Hindu Pushups and Hindu Squats, are great ways to increase strength, which makes physical tasks much easier and less fatiguing.
B ) Controlling food intake. A critical factor. Note that I didn't say "diet." At this point, we all pretty much understand that diets don't work
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Symptoms Tests Treatments
Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a devastating injury that affects more than 8 million people in the United States and continues to increase each and every year.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is one of many repetitive strain injuries (RSI's) that are everywhere; homes, offices, assembly lines, grocery stores, book clubs, construction sites, dental offices, everywhere! Because carpal tunnel syndrome is so commonplace, and its effects so devastating, it is important to be knowledgeable of how it occurs, what its symptoms are, the testing methods used and what treatment options are available, as the prevention of any injury, especially carpal tunnel, begins with education.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a disorder affecting the median nerve, which supplies function to the thumb, index, middle and one half of the ring finger. Usually the symptoms are most prevalent in the thumb, index and middle fingers (Sometimes one-half of the ring finger) and include numbness, tingling, paresthesia (pins and needles), pain and tightness in the front of the hand, wrist and forearm. These symptoms do not have to occur simultaneously, and may only affect one finger one day and then three fingers a few days later.
If a doctor provides a carpal tunnel diagnoses and the symptoms are in the ring and little fingers, it is NOT carpal tunnel syndrome! The ulnar nerve, not the median nerve, supplies function to the ring and little finger. Repetitive strain disorders affecting these two fingers are usually either Guyon's syndrome, entrapment of the ulnar nerve in the guyon's canal at the wrist junction, or cubital tunnel syndrome, entrapment of the ulnar nerve at the elbow junction. This is a common mistake made by many, many physicians and is completely inexcusable as they often recommend surgery for the patient, causing the patient to undergo an unnecessary procedure, and what makes it worse, for the wrong disorder!
If symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome do arise, doctors will recommend that a nerve conduction velocity (NCV) test or an Electromoyogram (EMG) be performed to see if carpal tunnel syndrome truly exists. These tests are often painful to the individual being tested, very expensive, and often give false positives and false negatives. This is why it is recommended that manual carpal tunnel tests be performed in order to obtain a more accurate (and much cheaper) diagnosis. Manual carpal tunnel tests take no longer than 10 minutes, have a high accuracy rate, are painless and are very cheap in comparison to the NCV and EMG tests.
The recommended manual carpal tunnel tests consist of the following:
Finding A System To Day Trade The Futures Market
When I first became interested in trading Futures I had no idea as to where to go to get information about trading. I didn't know anyone that traded the Futures Market. In fact when I talked to anyone about Futures all I heard was "don't trade Futures, it's way too dangerous, you will lose everything you own". Indeed you can lose money fast in the Futures market, but you can also make money fast because the leverage is fantastic and that's what interested me. I knew I had to have a good system, but where would I go to find one.
At that time brokers would send you information, and maybe they still do, from various Exchanges about different trading strategies and how one might use them in a particular Futures Market. Well, this information looked pretty good! All I had to do was get a charting service and I was on my way.
I guess I wasn't as bright as the person that gathered the information for the booklets because I simply could not make these indicators work for me. Surely someone was trading successfully using this information I thought, otherwise why would they publish the booklets. With this thought in mind I felt I just needed more information.
Books had to be the answer. Like I said previously, I guess I was not very bright because after reading thirty or forty books thoroughly, some two and three times, and having applied the techniques learned from the books, I was not able to trade profitably on a consistent basis. I'm sure some are capable of using these techniques to trade successfully, but I was not able to do so. While having a book burning party a few years ago, I decided to keep one book to remind me of my experience. It's on my bookshelf and I glance at it once or twice a year to keep this experience fresh in my memory. There may be some great books out there that show you how to trade successfully on a consistent basis, but unfortunately I never found one. I wasted years on this endeavor.
By this time computer trading was getting popular. I received an advertisement about a program where I could actually write my own system and back test it to get results before actually trading it. Wow! This was great and it was only $4,500.00. They advertised anyone would be able to program this thing. Well they must have meant anyone with the exception of me. I wasted hundreds of hours trying to write programs unsuccessfully. I didn't know the program language and I wasn't able to get enough information to learn it so I decided to be intelligent about this situation and bought another program at only half the price of the first one. I was able to write a few programs that produced very well in back testing, if one could stand twenty point stops in the S&P. I really liked this idea but finally had to admit that it was not going to give me what I was searching for.
For years now I had been studying charts every single day plus weekends and evenings.Of course I was aware that all indicators, strategies, systems etc. started with price. None of these things can be made without price moving first. Price can't be wrong because it is what it is, therefore it is always right. So I decided to put all of my energy into the study of charts, or price and its movement, and finally I found it. It was right there in front of me all these years and I just didn't see it. After another year or so of perfecting entries and exits and how to read where price should go, and if it would continue on or turn at that point, I finally had a system. This system will give you profits consistently. I found that price will tell you where it is going and where it is likely to turn, and if it doesn't turn there it will tell you in advance that it will likely continue.
I had a hard time learning to trade without a mentor. It actually took years of commitment, hard work, and a lot of wasted money. If you are new to trading Futures, or any market, and you don't have a mentor with a good system that will give you consistent profits, then by all means that should be your first endeavor. It is said that 90 of everyone trading in the futures market loses. Make sure you're in the 5 that are winners.
Poker Cheats The Marked Card
As the world of poker players continues to gain members everyday, more and more players are looking for easy ways to win the game. For cheaters, many feel that rather than take the time to hone their skills, they would prefer to master the skill of cheating.
Some players have learned how to mark cards as a way to help them win the game. Depending on the skill level of the cheater, marked cards can be obvious, or unnoticeable.
Sometimes the dealer will use his own deck of cards, or will get one prior to game play. Many cheaters have learned how to mark their cards during game play. To avoid having the marked cards noticed by other players, the cheater will usually make his marks so that they do not go all the way thru the card, because it would let light be seen through the card, thereby showing the mark.
Cheaters card markings are usually just small changes to the back of the cards. They may be scratches, change in design of the card, or possibly a bend in one corner of the card.
Marking the cards gives cheaters an advantage to their game play. They will most always mark all the high cards, or any other they card they think is crucial to the game.
Some cheaters prefer to mark their cards by using what is called shading. They will use a very fine ink to change part of the design on the back of the card. It requires the cheater to be very precise with his markings, but if he does a good job, no one but him will ever notice the marking.
Another technique many cheaters use is called daubing. Daubing uses a special form of ink and a small dauber. The cheat daubs the ink onto the back of the card, and the ink is invisible to the naked eye. Special sunglasses are required to see the markings. The kit to do this with can be purchased at magic or novelty stores.
Corner crimping is a method that many cheaters will use to mark their cards with. The cheater will see a card that he wants to mark and will then move that card away from the other cards and use his thumb or pointer finger to bend the corner of the card ever so slightly. He will be able to spot the marking during the game, and remember the card. Some cheaters when dealing can shuffle a number of cards to the bottom of the deck, and crimp the corners on all of them at one time.
Still other cheaters prefer to use thumbnail marking on their cards. The cheat will see a card he wants to mark, and then drive the end of his nail into the back of that particular card. Players who aren't trained to look for these marks will not notice them, while the player will be able to spot them for the duration of the game.
What Is Fareston Toremifene Citrate
Toremifene Citrate, an "oral selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM) that helps to fight the actions of estrogen in the body," is formally called Fareston-Toremifene Citrate. Actually, Toremifene Citrate is licensed in the United States under the brand name Fareston. It is also being studied for prevention of prostate cancer under the brand name Acapodene.
Fareston-Toremifene Citrate's chemical formula is C26H28ClNO. It is an oral medication and each tablet contains 88.5mg of toremifene citrate. The dose of Farestone is 60mg, once a day. Fareston-Toremifene Citrate is manufactured by Orion Corporation, Espoo, Finland and is distributed by Roberts Pharmaceutical Corporation Eatontown, USA.
Fareston-Toremifene Citrate is derived from triphenlethylene. Fareston is often touted as the "first-line therapy for advanced breast cancer," which means that it is effective in treating advanced breast cancer in women regardless of tumor type or menopausal status. It is approved by the U.S. FDA use in advanced (metastatic) breast cancer. It is used for the treatment of breast cancer in postmenopausal women. It can also be added in an already running cycle, if there are any cholesterol issues.
Fareston-Toremifene Citrate displays both estrogenic and antagonist properties. It causes the growth of estrogen which results in gynomastia - it is the growth of breast tissue in males and that's why bodybuilders are recommended to use Nolvadex to avoid gynecomastia (growth of breast tissue in males). It acts as an estrogen antagonist in the pituitary and hypothalamus which helps to increase the production of testosterone.
Fareston-Toremifene Citrate shows some properties of Nolvadex, but it is different from it in many ways. The risk of certain side effects is quite low with Fareston-Toremifene Citrate. Certain other side effects which Nolvadex has like - risk of stroke, pulmonary embolism and cataract gets lower with Fareston-Toremifene Citrate. As this product shows comparatively less ocular toxicity, people who have issues with "floaters" seem more interested in this product.
The adverse reactions which were noted in the beginning of treatment were - nausea and vomiting, fatigue, thromobophlebits, depression, lethargy, anorexia, arthritis, pulmonary embolism and mycrocardial infraction. Leukpenia and thrombocytopenia have been reported rarely. Some other reactions like dizziness, ataxia, blurry vision, sweating and incoordination have been consistently reported. Patients are advised to consult their doctor before using this drug.
Currently, two different studies on Fareston-Toremifene Citrate are being conducted by GTx Inc. The first study is going on for the treatment of serious side effects of androgen deprivation therapy (especially vertebral/spine fractures and hot flashes, lipid profile, and gynecomastia) for advanced prostate cancer. The second study is going on for the prevention of prostate cancer in high risk men with high grade prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia, or PIN. The findings of the two studies are expected to be revealed by first quarter of 2008.
Choosing A Life Coaching Program
Why do so many self help, positive thinking and motivational seminars, books and audios not work, and what can I do that will work for me?
Some of the things that need to be considered in any realistic and effective life manifestation program are:
The person or people providing the training, mentoring, and/or coaching need to be masters of their own philosophies and living proof that the lessons being taught do actually work.
They need to be providing the information as part of their own ongoing self manifestation. If these important factors are covered then that's a good place to start.
These things are obviously very important, but I'd like you to consider the following:
Below are my thoughts on the first thing to consider, and what can be done to help ensure successful life manifestation.
Does the program cater for the individual? We are all products of our genetic make up and social conditioning, that's why we are where we are now, getting through life by reacting to our surroundings. There's nothing wrong with that, if we react in the way we choose and don't have someone or something else make that choice for us.
If a program isn't available to us at a time and place that is truly convenient for us then chances are we will never be able to participate fully, or even complete the program. Therefore we'll end up right where we started! And blame the course for not working! Because then, we can justify our failure, and continue along the same road we've been walking for years, we know this road and it's familiar to us so we are comfortable here. We have just reinforced the behaviour that got us where we are now. That doesn't help us does it?
Rewind! Why did we start the course in the first place? Answer because we aren't comfortable where we are today! Right?
If we want to change this pattern we need to be careful in choosing something or someone to help us to help ourselves.
While it's easy to understand, theoretically, that in order to make changes we have to take action and start changing the things we do, say, and think, this is akin to asking some of us to run before we can walk. It may be easy for some of us, but for others taking the suggested action in a particular book, program, or course might involve stepping too far out of our comfort zone.
Therefore, a program that is personal and convenient means that we will be able to succeed at a pace that we are comfortable with, help ourselves, and this will give us success.
As you probably know "success breeds success" every time we take a small action and have positive results from it we are able to realistically perceive ourselves achieving more and more. Therefore I truly believe that a program that offers convenience will always be more effective than one that is less convenient to the user.
Choices In Wedding Music
American weddings have come a long way over the years. In a society that is made up of people from so many different cultures, lifestyles, religions, and backgrounds, it is no surprise that the traditions in the wedding ceremony are as vastly different as well. Wedding music is no exception. From the ceremony itself to the party atmosphere of the reception, the wedding music sets the tone for the event.
Traditional Wedding Music:
At most weddings we can expect to hear selections that have come to be known as traditional wedding music. Titles like Ave Maria, the Minuet from Don Giovanni, and, of course, The Bridal Chorus and The Wedding March have long been the standard music for a wedding. Particularly religious ceremonies may include hymns like Amazing Grace and a Jewish wedding almost always includes a hora danced to a medley of tunes like Hava Nagila, and Siman Tov U Mazeltov.
The traditional wedding music holds a special place in our hearts and many think that a wedding ceremony is incomplete without it. The couple must decide whether or not to use traditional wedding music in the ceremony, as well as how much of it to use. If this part of the wedding tradition is important to you, then traditional wedding music is the way to go.
Modern Wedding Music:
Often couples will forgo the traditional wedding music selections and instead include modern or popular music in the wedding ceremony. This practice is so common that some titles are becoming traditional wedding song selections themselves. It is not unusual to hear When a Man Loves a Woman, Always and Forever, or I Will Always Love You sung, performed, or played at weddings today. Often more modern titles like these will appear in a ceremony along with the more traditional wedding music.
Avant-Garde Wedding Music:
As people's attitudes change and varying forms of wedding ceremonies take place, the choice of wedding music often changes right along with them. Occasionally couples will choose music for their wedding that reflects the stark difference in their personalities and makes a unique and bold statement. While your wedding ceremony is primarily for the couple getting married, it is important to remember that it is an event attended by your family members as well. While you may wish to make an impression on your guests with your choice of music, you should still be cautious not to offend your respective grandmothers. As such, a selection by an artist like Marilyn Manson may never be appropriate for a wedding ceremony. This does not mean that your wedding music choices are restricted to traditional classics or sappy love songs. I once attended a very avant-garde wedding where three couples married in the same ceremony. It was a beautiful event and was made memorable by their choice of music. The couples strode down the aisle to the sounds of Pink Floyd's Signs of Life, an instrumental track from the album A Momentary Lapse of Reason. It was a wedding ceremony that I will remember forever.
