In India : About 71 per cent of the Indian population is eating less than half of the recommended serving of fruits and vegetables, a survey by a global nutrition company says. According to the survey by Herbalife Nutrition.

In America : Only nine percent of Americans are meeting their daily recommended consumption of vegetables, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This May, National Salad Month, make an extra effort to get your greens and meet the 2016 USDA Dietary Guidelines, which recommend that you consume between two and three cups of vegetables per day.

While this may sound like an impossible feat, it’s easy enough to accomplish with one simple dish, a salad. Not only can you make a dent in your daily consumption of vegetables, but you can also work your way towards achieving some of the other USDA Dietary Guidelines recommendations.

Vibrant Produce
This is a close-up of vegetables and fruits.

Here’s how:

  • Add meats such as steak or chicken and nuts such as pecans, walnuts and almonds to get a protein boost. It is recommended that an adult get anywhere from five to six-and-a-half ounces of lean and varied proteins per day.
  • Add fruits such as oranges or strawberries to try and hit the two cups of recommended fruit serving per day.
  • Crackers or quinoa can help you reach your allotment of three to four ounces of grains, half of which should be whole grains per day.
  • A little cheese can go a long way in helping you to meet the three recommended cups of dairy per day.
  • Salad dressings count towards the five to seven teaspoons of oils that you should be consuming each day and the oils in dressings, such as canola and soybean, help your body to absorb nutrients from vegetables.

Salads provide a healthy and easy avenue to gather several of the recommended nutrients. Here’s a simple recipe for Baby Greens with Roasted Pears, Feta and Walnuts to show you how easy it is to make a healthy and delicious salad.

All you need are pears, olive oil, baby greens, feta cheese, toasted walnuts, salt, pepper and your choice of salad dressings.

First, preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with wax paper and drizzle four pears, peeled, cored and cut into eighths, with one teaspoon of olive oil. Roast in the oven until the edges turn golden brown.

Once the pears have cooled, toss with eight cups of baby greens and your choice of salad dressings (champagne vinaigrette is one recommendation). Sprinkle half-a-cup of feta and half-a-cup of walnuts over the greens, and season with salt and pepper. Now you’re ready to start enjoying National Salad Month like a pro!

Automatic Lawn Sprinkler System – Guest Post #3 

If you like the idea of a lush, green lawn and garden but dread the thought of dragging around a hose or sprinkler all summer, then you may want to consider installing an in-ground sprinkler system. While some systems can get complex and difficult to install, others are affordable do-it-yourself projects.

Not convinced this is a DIY project for you? According to Popular Mechanics, today’s sprinkler components are easier than ever to assemble. A product like the Rain Bird 32ETI Easy To Install Automatic Sprinkler System, for instance, retails for less than $199 (12764.95 rupees in india) at home improvement stores and Internet retailers.

It can be easily installed in one afternoon and doesn’t require tapping into underground water lines.

“This new system offers do-it-your selfers a more efficient, automatic way to achieve a beautiful, green lawn without having to drag out a hose or remember to move a sprinkler around,” says Ray Peppiatt, marketing manager of Rain Bird Consumer Products Division.

The system efficiently waters an area up to up to 3,000-square-feet, and conveniently sources water from any outdoor hose faucet.

As with any DIY project, the heavy lifting is often in the planning. To help, many manufacturers provide installation video tutorials and helpful tips on their websites. In the case of the Rain Bird 32ETI System, you get all of the supplies necessary for a simple five-step installation, including distribution tubing, fittings, an automatic timer and six professional grade, high-efficiency, pop-up rotary sprinklers.

“Now [homeowners] can spend the weekend enjoying their yard instead of worrying about watering it,” says Peppiatt.

Keep in mind, experts say proper watering is one of the most important things you can do to keep your lawn healthy. By doing so, it can raise the value of your home by as much as 14 percent.

Finally, to make sure the sprinkler system doesn’t overwhelm your water bill, be sure to find one that comes with an automatic timer. Simply program your desired watering schedule for any day of the week, as many times as you’d like your lawn and garden watered.

The Science of Water: What You Drink and Your Immune System Guest post #6

Most people know that their bodies are made up of a great deal of water, but may be surprised to learn that number is about 70 percent—and yet studies show we don’t drink enough to replenish what we need.

Other drinks to be sure, but water? Not even close.

Emphasizing this point is a study conducted by Dr. Alyson Goodman for the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention that suggests one in 10 Americans drinks no water every day.  Zero. She calls these results “mindboggling.”

“Water is vital for life,” says Goodman. “Many health risks decrease when you drink plain water.”

Goodman believes that the non-water drinkers are getting their water from coffee, sodas, food and other sources, which might theoretically be okay, except for the calories that are associated with those other liquids.

According to Dr. Theodore A. Baroody, in order for a body to function well, it must have water, and in order for it to function properly, it must continuously work to maintain a proper pH or chemical balance.

To this end, the benefits of drinking water can’t be measured (preventing dehydration chief among them), however, adding alkaline water to a diet already rich in nutrient dense foods can help maintain a body’s pH balance, as well as aid in avoiding cancer, weak bones, premature aging and fatigue.

“An unbalanced pH can force your body to borrow important minerals from your vital organs and bones in order to remove excess acid,” Baroody says.

Water such as Alkame Water not only helps regulate these important pH balances in the body, but can boost the immune system, improve cardio-respiratory function and enhance energy levels. It even fights oxidative stress and free radicals.

Unlike its tap and bottled counterparts, Alkame Water goes through a process called “micro-clustering,” in which the molecules that make up water are broken up into smaller “clusters,” allowing body cells to absorb the water much faster, and in turn hydrate you more efficiently.

“If someone were to ask me, ‘What is the one thing I can do to have better health?’ Then the answer would be simple: Start drinking alkaline, ionized water,” says Dr. Robert O. Young, PhD, author of the “The pH Miracle.”

Alkame Water, Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of Pinacle Enterprise Inc. (OTCBB: PINS) (OTCQB: PINS). For more information on Alkame Water and its health benefits, visit www.alkamewater.com.

Medicine and Laser Technology – Guest post #7

If you are old enough, you may remember seeing science fiction comic books that used lasers to zap the enemy. It’s not unusual that ideas so noted and seemingly far-fetched become realities. We are more familiar with the military’s laser-guided missiles and LASIK than we are with low-level lasers in the form of healing light. But healing lasers are at our doorstep.

Our bodies are dependent on the health of our cells. In fact, studies show that only a 2 percent loss of cellular water can decrease our energy levels by as much as 20 percent. The health of our cells is dependent on energy. If they are exposed to excessive energy, they will be fatally damaged, and the body will die. On the other hand, if the cells receive insufficient energy, they will weaken and become sick or diseased.

Over the years, scientists and doctors have been fine-tuning low-level lasers to increase the body’s adenosine triphosphate (ATP) for cellular energy, resulting in exactly the right kind and amount of energy. What they have discovered is that lasers help in more ways than just boosting energy.

“What we have found is that low-level lasers stimulate the body to release pain-relieving endorphins, help the body heal damaged DNA and scar tissue and even help repolarize cell membranes for better nutrient absorption,” said Dr. Larry Lytle, author of the book “Universal Healer: Book I Osteoarthritis.” and developer of the QLaser.

Lytle’s QLaser was recently cleared by the FDA for over-the-counter sale and use in treating osteoarthritis in the hands. The Q1000 is a Class I laser device that has been classified by the FDA as a non-significant risk device as related to eye injuries, yet it helps the body release endorphins reduce inflammation, increase circulation, heal damaged cell membranes and boost cells’ energy levels, resulting in less pain and more healing. Keeping a personal laser, like the QLaser, at home can help patients address their osteoarthritis without turning to costly medical treatments.

Programmable Thermostats – New way to save energy

This is the topic of world, saving energy! here is an article gives solution… From smart phones to programmable thermostats, today’s electronics come equipped with advanced operating systems that make life easier and more efficient. The challenge is knowing how to take full advantage of the capabilities of these devices. Heating and cooling losses from a building (or any other container) become greater as the difference in temperature increases. A programmable thermostat allows reduction of these losses by allowing the temperature difference to be reduced at times when the reduced amount of heating or cooling would not be objectionable.

For example, during cooling season, a programmable thermostat used in a home may be set to allow the temperature in the house to rise during the workday when no one will be at home. It may then be set to turn on the air conditioning before the arrival of occupants, allowing the house to be cool upon the arrival of the occupants while still having saved air conditioning energy during the peak outdoor temperatures. The reduced cooling required during the day also decreases the demands placed upon the electrical supply grid.

Consider indoor environment devices like programmable thermostats. Programmable thermostats are capable of controlling the entire heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system – from heating to indoor air quality and energy management.

“Adjusting the temperature up and down doesn’t equate to savings or even comfort in the home,” said Jonathan Payne, product manager of programmable controls at Carrier. “The key to total comfort is the homeowner’s ability to control the temperature, humidity, air circulation and energy use.”

Although many homes have programmable thermostats, they may not be programmed or used properly. To truly realize the advantages of a programmable thermostat, consider these tips:

  1.  Choose a thermostat that manages your system properly and efficiently. Select a thermostat that is not only easy for you to understand and program, but one that controls all of the equipment in your HVAC system, including an air purifier, humidifier, air conditioner, furnace and/or heat pump.
  2.  Have the HVAC control or thermostat installed by a Carrier authorized dealer or other HVAC expert to ensure the wiring and settings are configured to match the needs of your specific system.
  3.  Choose a program that fits well with your lifestyle, and stick with it. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), energy can be saved if you keep energy-saving set points activated for longer timeframes. So, you could leave home energy-saving set points on during the work/school day, or at night when family members are asleep, for instance.
  4.  Avoid overuse of the temporary “hold” feature. If you consistently “hold” or over-ride the pre-programmed settings, you could be wasting energy. The EPA suggests that the “hold” and “vacation” settings should be set several degrees warmer and cooler in the summer and winter months, respectively, and only used when you’re away from home for an extended stay.
  5.  Try not to achieve a quick fix. The EPA’s Proper Use Guidelines for Programmable Controls indicate that you will not heat or cool your house faster by adjusting the temperature on your thermostat to the extremes – up to 80 degrees or down to 30 degrees.

Sathyendra nath Bose – A Einstein contemporary Genius Part – 1 

Somethings about Bose and his student partha ghose.

Satyendra Nath Bose 
The Creator of Quantum Statistics

Sathyendra nath bose ( 1894 – 1974 ) was Indian physicist who put forward a theory which explains the behavior and characters from subatomic level in its particle stage. He visualized that photons,A packets of energy, which actually perform differently….are much more interesting.

He was the important person and stands in the lines of people who laid solid foundation to the quantum theory of Einstein and Bohr with many physicists of 19th centaury. Einstein recognized him as a gem of Indian physics.

below is the letter to Einstein by bose.

Respected Sir, I have ventured to send you the accompanying article for your perusal and opinion. I am anxious to know what you think of it. You will see that I have tried to deduce the coefficient 8π ν2/c3 in Planck’s Law independent of classical electrodynamics, only assuming that the ultimate elementary region in the phase-space has the content h3. I do not know sufficient German to translate the paper. If you think the paper worth publication I shall be grateful if you arrange for its publication in Zeitschrift für Physik. Though a complete stranger to you, I do not feel any hesitation in making such a request. Because we are all your pupils though profiting only by your teachings through your writings. I do not know whether you still remember that somebody from Calcutta asked your permission to translate your papers on Relativity in English. You acceded to the request. The book has since been published. I was the one who translated your paper on Generalised Relativity.

Bose_letter

He himself appreciated the works of Bose. Bose become household name only when he got international recognition…by German physicists. Bose learnt German and he is the first person to translate works of Einstein to English, this was his most significant effort in helping Indian other budding scientists to learn them. Einstein later developed Bose’s ideas and thoughts into calculations which now known as Bose Einstein statistics.

Bose made his birth place india to feel proud… When Boson’s made historical moment recently, which helped to understand physics and fate of universe/cosmology in much deeply.

During my visit to listen public lectures, I went for listening Einstein’s portrait – a drama in NIAS ( National Institute of Advanced Studies ) Indian institute of science. IISc Bangalore. I was fortunate to meet the student of sathyendra nath bose . Partha Ghose, FNASc, is an Indian physicist, author, philosopher, musician and former Professor at the S.N. Bose National Centre for Basic Sciences in Kolkata.

Partha Ghose

Most Celebrated theoretical physicist of India. Sir ghose talked with me about physics and I I asked many questions, he was very humble to reply me,that’s amazing for a small student. That is for me. Will share many things in next post about partha ghose.
