Aging And Our Joints}

Aging and Our Joints


Glenn Antoine

Have you ever experienced the early morning stiffness in the ankles or knees that makes getting up and walking not so much fun? What about going up stairs and the knees just dont really feel quite up to the task? Have you reached for something that is above your head or just a little higher so that you have to reach more than the norm and the shoulder just didnt want to?

If you use to enjoy walking, but your joints just didnt want to cooperate take heart. There is a new product on the market that is getting all kinds of praise and that product is RegeniCare. Touted as the Ultimate Joint Care Formula RegeniCare backs up that claim with state of the art science, enough testimonials to fill a book and double blind placebo controlled human clinical trials where they beat out the leading COX2 inhibitors that were available at the time. Interested?

Now you have a choice and the best choice is RegeniCare. There are a lot of joint care products on the market, many of which contain glucosamine, chondroitin, and numerous other elements that have been found to help with the maintenance and repair of your joints. The real difference here is the quality of the nutrients provided, the quantity of those nutrients and in what combinations, how those nutrients are delivered and how fast will they work once in your body. Basically if research has proven that you need 1500 milligrams of glucosamine you better make sure that you are getting 1500 milligrams and be able to absorb the glucosamine provided. What good do you think it would do if I provided you with a tablet with 1500 milligrams of glucosamine, but the tablet was packed so tight that it was through your digestive system before your body could break it down? Right none at all. In this scenario you might as well be taking your money and burning it because you are getting no benefit from the products you are taking.

All of these issues and more have been addressed in the design and production of RegeniCare. First and most obvious is that RegeniCare is provided in packets that are typically mixed in water. My preference is to mix my RegeniCare in a coffee cup full of lukewarm water as it seems to mix better for me and it tastes great. Univera LifeSciences has again made use of their full scale genomics to search thousands of plants extracts for the right combination of plant extracts to reduce the inflammation typically associated with joint pain. What they found is that your body can have all of the right nutrients, but if they can not get to the problem area due to inflammation the repair process never gets started. As such they added their patented ingredient Protectin to address this issue thereby letting the other nutrients do the job they were meant to do. And, RegeniCare was proven to provide faster and more complete results than other natural products on the market.

Another important aspect of RegeniCare is that it provides all of the required nutrients for complete repair and regeneration of the connective tissues in your body: Glucosamine sulfate, MSM, Chondroitin sulfate, CMO, Protectin, Vitamin C, and Maxcell

While we have addressed the Protectin contained in RegeniCare many of you may be asking your self about Maxcell. Maxcell is a patented product of Univera LifeSciences that improves the bioavailability of the nutrients contained in RegeniCare. In short Maxcell helps to get the nutrients into the blood stream, so they can go to work in the body, more specifically helping you rebuild the connective tissues of your joints.

While both Glucosamine and Chondroitin are naturally occurring in our bodies we begin to produce less and less of these vital nutrients as we begin to age. These nutrients are known as proteoglycans and help to strengthen and hydrate the tendons in our bodies. As we begin to age we have less and less in our system therefore the connective tissues in our bodies begin to dehydrate. Needless to say has these connective tissues begin to dehydrate movement becomes more painful, we are more susceptible to injury and we dont heal as quickly as we might have at one time. With new research proving daily that exercise is one of the keys to a life filled with vital energy, quicker recovery times from surgery or illness wouldnt it make sense to do whatever you can to keep moving.

MSM is another critically important nutrient found in healthy joint tissue and as luck would have it most people are not getting this important sulfur compound from their diets. Again, in our battle against Mother Nature, MSM begins to decrease as we age. As such it was important that RegeniCare provide the proper amount of MSM as part of this joint care product.

CMO was proven to improve range of motion in knees during a 2002 Clinical study that was published in the Journal of Rheumatology, just to mention one study. Even with it being a known as an aide to the improvement of joint range of motion, this is not a nutrient you will find in a lot of other joint care products.

While research has proven that exercise will help stimulate the body to produce new collagen and higher levels of the repair and rebuild proteoglycans we are still battling the age factor and RegeniCare is now available to help us win that battle. If you are planning to stay active and enjoy life, verses watching it go by, RegeniCare is a must have in your quest for healthy living. For most of us a single packet daily would be sufficient to help maintain our connective tissues at an optimal level of repair and rebuild. If you are suffering from some kind of an injury, have had a long battle with some connective tissue, or just arent seeing the results you expected there is nothing wrong with taking a packet of RegeniCare first thing in the morning and then again at night before bed. If possible it is best to take it on an empty stomach so that the RegeniCare is not competing with other nutrients for absorption, but the import part is to just get it into your system. Additionally for some nagging problems I have known a number of people that were taking the product for 6 to 8 weeks before noticing a significant difference. At the other end of the scale there are those that have experienced relief in a matter of hours, but the important thing to remember is that each of our bodies is unique and as such our results will vary. The one thing that you can, and should, count on is that this is the product to get you the relief that you have been looking for. Weather it is your knees, your back, your neck, your shoulder or any other area of your body that requires the functioning of connective tissue, RegeniCare can help. This is one product that I would put in the category of food and water. Basically I plan to stay active well into my aging years and RegeniCare will help me to ensure that I do so.

If you are Personal Trainer, Yoga Instructor, Massage Therapist, Physical or Occupational Therapist or a Chiropractor working with clients on range of motion and/or the rehabilitation of any joints you would be doing to your clients a huge disservice if you dont take the time to check this product out. And if you dont like the results the product is backed by a 100% Satisfaction Money Back Guarantee.

Tuesday, January 29, 2008

The Internet-based group “Anonymous” released a new video on YouTube Monday, announcing international protests outside Church of Scientology centers set for February 10. The video “Call to Action” uses the same computer synthesized voice as a previous video titled “Message to Scientology”, which was posted to YouTube last Monday. The “Message to Scientology” video has been viewed over 1,400,000 times, and the “Call to Action” video has already been viewed over 237,000 times.

Anonymous is taking action against the Church of Scientology in response to what it sees as suppression of freedom of speech on the Internet. The group was first motivated after the Church of Scientology issued a copyright infringement claim to YouTube regarding a promotional video of Scientologist Tom Cruise speaking about his beliefs and using Scientology jargon. The Church of Scientology also issued a legal complaint to the website which is also hosting the video, but Gawker has stated it will not take the video down because it is newsworthy.

Anonymous set up a movement called “Project Chanology” to coordinate their efforts, and took down several Church of Scientology websites through denial-of-service attacks. Members of Anonymous have also participated in prank calls to Church of Scientology centers, as well as protests or “raids” outside Scientology buildings, and have posted some of their exploits to YouTube.

Anonymous is a collective of individuals united by an awareness that someone must do the right thing.

In the “Call to Action” video, Anonymous denies that they are composed solely of “super hackers”, stating “Anonymous is a collective of individuals united by an awareness that someone must do the right thing, that someone must bring light to the darkness, that someone must open the eyes of a public that has slumbered for far too long.” The video goes on to state “We want you to be aware of the very real dangers of Scientology,” citing what they term “gross human rights violations”.

Specific controversial events in Scientology history are cited in the video, including Operation Freakout and Paulette Cooper, and Operation Snow White. Operation Freakout was the name of a Church of Scientology operation whose goal was to “get P.C. [Paulette Cooper] incarcerated in a mental institution or jail or at least to hit her so hard that she drops her attacks.” Paulette Cooper had written a book critical of Scientology called The Scandal of Scientology. Operation Snow White was the name of a Church of Scientology operation where members of the Church’s secretive Guardian’s Office infiltrated United States government agencies in Washington, D.C. including the I.R.S. The F.B.I.’s investigation into Operation Snow White led them to discover the planning of actions taken against Paulette Cooper.

The video concludes by inviting the viewer to “take up the banner of free speech” and protest with Anonymous world wide. In an email to CNET News, Anonymous stated that cities where unknown activities are planned on February 10 include New York City, Montreal, Houston, London, Melbourne, and Los Angeles.

On Friday, two spokespersons for the Church of Scientology commented on the recent actions of Anonymous. A spokesman told “These types of people have got some wrong information about us,” and Church spokeswoman Yvette Shank told Sun Media that she regarded members of Anonymous as a “pathetic” group of “computer geeks”. On Monday, Radar reported that the Church of Scientology has asked the U.S. Attorney General‘s office in Los Angeles, the F.B.I., and the LAPD to start a criminal investigation of possible criminal activity related to the Internet attacks. A source told Radar that the Church of Scientology is arguing that the Internet attacks are a form of “illegal interference with business.” Radar also reports that the Church of Scientology is emphasizing its status as a religious organization in the United States, in order to assert that the Internet attacks can be classed as hate crimes.

I’m mainly concerned because you shouldn’t be doing things that are illegal, you just shouldn’t.

On Saturday, Mark Bunker of the website posted a video to YouTube criticizing the illegal actions of Anonymous and suggested legal methods for them to retaliate against the Church of Scientology, including peaceful protesting, writing letters to their government representatives, and persuading the United States government to take away the Church of Scientology’s tax exempt status. In the video, Bunker states “I’m mainly concerned because you shouldn’t be doing things that are illegal, you just shouldn’t. It’s not morally right, and it’s not right when Scientology does it, it’s not right when we do it.” Bunker’s video post has been viewed over 156,000 times. On Sunday, Bunker posted a follow-up video to YouTube where he gives advice to Anonymous on how to peacefully picket. He also provides viewers with resources and weblinks to more information on how to hold a peaceful protest. He concludes this video by imitating Obi-Wan Kenobi‘s Jedi mind trick technique and voice from Star Wars, stating “And if I may, as Obi-Wan, tell you: You will do nothing illegal “.

If there is anything that truly frightens a man about his sensual health, its the loss of member sensitivity. But perhaps even worse is an unexplained lack of firmness when a man becomes excited. No matter how good a mans male organ care might be, there are some surprising culprits lurking in everyday life that can wreck havoc with both member sensitivity and hardness. The good news is that most of those problems can be nipped in the bud.

What is causing loss of member sensitivity?

Men who are dealing with lowered member sensitivity or problems with maintaining a strong hardness might be very frightened. Does this spell the end of their sensual days? What is happening and how can it be fixed? Fortunately, there are several answers as to why firmness isnt so firm anymore.

1.Jack and Jim. Tipping the alcohol is known to cause problems with getting it up from time to time, but chronic drinking issues can lead to an ongoing problem with hardness and sensitivity. As little as two drinks per day can be enough to cause serious trouble.

2.Being a vampire. Avoiding sun exposure can mean less vitamin D, which translates to lower male hormone levels, and we know what that means. In fact, male hormone production can drop by 20 percent or more without a daily dose of sunshine.

3.Going vegan. Many vegans eat a lot of soy, and that ingredient has properties very similar to that of estrogen, which saps the male hormone right out of the body. This doesnt mean vegans must eat meat; they simply should lay off the soy for a while.

4.Exercising like a madman. Many hardcore runners have reported issues with low male hormone. In fact, those who run more than 40 miles in a given week are more likely to have problems with hardness and possibly with member sensitivity as well.

5.Being a zombie. If getting forty winks is a long-forsaken dream and a man is stumbling around like a zombie even after a few cups of Joe, its entirely possible that a lack of sleep is leading to serious member problems. Again, its all about that all important male hormone lack of sleep can eventually make it drop enough to cause problems.

6.Being a great dad. Many new dads know the feeling of wanting their newborn close to watch over them but having a baby in the bedroom can naturally knock down the male hormone level. Sleep disruption doesnt help matters much. (And of course, when hardness does happen and the timing is just right, its inevitable that the baby will wake up and interrupt what would have been a quickie anyway.)

7.Mmmm, chocolate! Ever had trouble getting it up after a great meal and luscious dessert? That sugar might be the culprit, as it affects insulin levels, which in turn affect desire.

8.That grocery receipt. As odd as it may sound, carrying around receipts and other BPA-heavy items in trouser pockets puts them in close proximity to the male goods, which can actually throw hormones entirely out of whack. So put receipts, baggage tags and lottery tickets in the glove box instead of the pocket.

How to fight loss of member sensitivity

With all of these potential reasons for loss of member sensitivity, it might seem like a man is doomed to less-than-stellar hardness. But thats not the case! Pay attention to the list above and invest in a good manhood health crme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) that is designed to keep the member as happy as possible. The best crme will include vitamin C, which is great for male member function, and acetyl L carnitine, which is known to protect against peripheral nerve damage. A powerful emollient like Shea butter also helps moisturize the skin, which can heighten sensation.

Colorado parents burn books

Posted August 13th, 2017 by e76yKR

Thursday, September 29, 2005

Norwood, Colorado parents recently burned copies of Rudolfo Anaya’s Bless Me, Ultima after having them pulled from the area high school’s curriculum. Millie Davis, of the National Council of Teachers of English, said “I’m flabbergasted that something like this would be happening in this day and age”. The Hispanic coming-of-age story is commonly included as part of high school curriculums, and won the Premio Quinto Sol national Chicano literary award. The novel explores some minority religious views such as paganism.

The Colorado parents who burned the copies claim they “mainly” object to some profanity in the novel. Rudolfo Anaya, a professor emeritus of English at the University of New Mexico, said “The book should be judged in its entirety. There is some strong language in strong situations, but there is no flippant use of profanity.”

“Bless Me, Ultima” has survived a challenge in New York without being banned, or indeed, burned. It came in 75th on the American Library Association’s list of the 100 Most Frequently Challenged Books of 1990–2000. By comparison, the fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh positions are occupied by Robert Cormier’s The Chocolate War, Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men, and J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series, respectively.

New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin and Louisiana Secretary of State Mitch Landrieu will most likely face each other in a May 20 runoff election for mayor of New Orleans.

With all 442 precincts reporting from elections on Saturday, Nagin has reportedly received 41,489 votes (38%), leading all candidates but falling short of the majority needed to avoid a runoff. Landrieu received 31,499 votes (29%); Ron Forman, 18,734 votes (17%). All three are Democrats.

Nagin, 49, was first elected in 2002 on a platform of fighting government corruption, but he has since become better known for leading the recovery effort in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. At the same time, he has come under criticism for certain remarks, such as asserting that New Orleans would remain a “chocolate city” with an African-American majority.

Nagin said that he was “humbled by the support from this community,” and called on New Orleanians to “bring this city together … it’s time for black and white, Hispanic and Asian, everybody to come together for one New Orleans. It’s time for us to stop the bickering.”

Landrieu, 45, brother of U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) and son of former New Orleans mayor Moon Landrieu, said, “Tonight, we take the second step on this journey back home, and I ask all New Orleanians to join with me in this march as we proclaim to America that New Orleans will be rebuilt.”

Forman pledged to “work day and night with either Mitch or Ray to rebuild this city.”

A special challenge in this election was bringing together New Orleans residents displaced by the catastrophic flooding in the aftermath of Katrina. It is estimated that nearly six out of every ten residents still registered to vote in New Orleans live outside the city.

Polling was held at 76 polling stations (compared with 262 four years ago) and ten satellite stations were opened throughout the state for absentee voting. Civil rights groups challenged the plan, and instead advocated for polling stations to be setup in Houston and Atlanta where many displaced residents now live. State officials and federal courts rejected the plan, citing legal questions.
