There is at least 4 thing banana do better than pills

 

  1. Flatulence and constipation

Bananas contain pectin, which speeds up digestion and encourages the removal of toxins and heavy metals from the body. In addition, their work as a probiotic  stimulates the intestine. All these factors reduce flatulence while the hair soft fruit awakenes the intestine and acts as a natural laxative for constipation.

  1. Stress

Stress is known as a disease of modern age, where is continuouslly leaving a great impact on our health. Stress speeds up the metabolism, and the level of potassium is dropping in the body. The balance can be established with the help of a banana, which contains enough potassium, which will help normalize the heartbeat, sends oxygen to the brain and regulates the optimum amount of water in the body

  1. Blood Pressure

It is known that high intake of sodium and low intake of potassium have a negative effect on blood pressure. Because of that it is important to have a sufficient amount of potassium that can be found in bananas. Every morning it is recommended to eat one banana, that will maintain the pressure to the ideal permissible limit.

  1. PMS

Bananas are rich with vitamin B6, which has a positive effect on blood glucose levels, and it is proved that vitamin B in PMS works well. Reduces pain in the abdomen and chest, reduces the mood changes and the accumulation of water in the body.

Phillip Hughes death

 

We often take it for granted that sport can be dangerous epically cricket.  this week two people died as a result of a ball hitting them Phillip Hughes more on that below and hillel Oscar are one of many who have died this way.

Two days after he was struck by a ball in what was called a freakish accident, an Australian cricketer, Phillip Hughes, died in a Sydney hospital on Thursday, drawing expressions of grief, shock and disbelief from fellow players and sporting figures around the world.

Mr. Hughes, 25, had represented Australia in dozens of international matches — in both one-day games and the longer contests called test matches — and was regarded as a player with a bright future after a sometimes-uneven record in the national team.

But his death stunned many fans of cricket’s thrilling duel between bowlers and batters in protective pads and helmets, renewing a long-running debate over safety. It is not unusual for the ball to strike players, but fatalities are rare. Cricket is a national sport in Australia, which prides itself on the skill and courage of its players.

“Despite extensive surgery,” he said, Mr. Hughes, “did not make very much improvement, and unfortunately, as a consequence of the injury, he died.”

Mr. Hughes was playing in a domestic game in Sydney on Tuesday when the ball struck him in a part of the neck that was not protected by his helmet. The force was such that his vertebral artery was pierced, prompting significant bleeding to the brain, news reports said. Physicians induced a coma as they sought to save him.

Cricket balls resemble baseballs but are heavier and routinely reach speeds of around 90 miles per hour. Bowlers use various techniques, from relatively slow spin bowling, which seeks to outwit batters, to so-called bouncers that are meant to rear up from the ground and hurtle toward the batter’s upper body.

In a tally, The Associated Press listed only four deaths since 1870 caused by cricket balls striking batters. Before Mr. Hughes, the most recent was Darryn Randall, 32, in South Africa last year, The A.P. said.

“The word tragedy gets used too often in sport, but this freak accident is now real-life tragedy,” said James Sutherland, the chief executive of Cricket Australia, the sport’s governing body in that country.

“Without doubt, he was a rising star whose best cricket was in front of him,” he said.

As cricket fans mourned, the Australian flag was lowered to half-staff over cricket grounds in Sydney and Melbourne. Several scheduled games were suspended as far afield as Sharjah, in the United Arab Emirates, where Pakistan was playing New Zealand.

Cricket stars from Australia, Britain, India, South Africa, Sri Lanka and elsewhere registered shock, while the Australian prime minister, Tony Abbott, said that Mr. Hughes had been “a young man living out his dreams.”

“What happened has touched millions of Australians,” he said. “For a young life to be cut short playing our national game seems a shocking aberration.”

Shane Warne, an Australian sports commentator and former spin bowler,said on Twitter: “Woken to the horrific news about Hughesy ! I cannot describe the sadness I feel for the Hughes family & fellow cricket players, so so sad.

Finger Math: 9X Rule

 

To multiply by 9,try this:
(1) Spread your two hands out and place them on a desk or table in front of you.
(2) To multiply by 3, fold down the 3rd finger from the left. To multiply by 4, it would be the 4th finger and so on.
(3) the answer is 27 … READ it from the two fingers on the left of the folded down finger and the 7 fingers on the right of it.

This works for anything up to 9×10!

Square a 2 Digit Number Ending in 5


For this example we will use 25

  • Take the “tens” part of the number (the 2 and add 1)=3
  • Multiply the original “tens” part of the number by the new number (2×3)

Take the result (2×3=6) and put 25 behind it. Result the answer 625.

Try a few more 75 squared … = 7×8=56 … put 25 behind it is 5625.
55 squared = 5×6=30 … put 25 behind it … is 3025. Another easy one! Practice it on paper first!

 

Fastest bicycle

 

No, that’s not a photo mistake. The picture you’re looking at is of a bicycle, and the engineers who designed it are trying to break a record to make it the world’s fastest.

That’s right, a bike. It looks like it doesn’t have wheels or a driver, but the Arion 1, designed by eight engineering students at the University of Liverpool, is encased in an aerodynamic shell that has been    designed with an inverted teardrop shape to allow it to cut through the air as easily as possible.

currently, the record for the fastest exotic engineered bike is 83.1 miles an hour as held by the  Dutch-made XeloX3. The Arion 1 is currently in the design stage, but its engineers project it to be able to reach speeds up to 90mph.

This is how fast that looks. These GIFs are of the Xelox 3, which holds the record for fastest exotic engineered bike. The ULV Team believes that the Arion 1 will be able to break top speeds, while also protecting the rider inside from getting bugs in his or her teeth.

A bicyclist has to lie down Inside the Arion 1. With the rider as low as possible to the ground, the Arion 1 will be able to cut down on wind resistance. Since the driver is fully enclosed in the aerodynamic shell, there’s no way for him or her to see outside, requiring a video camera system to steer.

It will take some muscular calves to get the Arion 1 up to top speed: the ULV Team anticipates that for a rider to reach 90-plus miles an hour, he or she will need to generate up to 700 watts of power

Right now, the ULV Team is building a prototype of the Arion 1 called the Arion 0, which they hope will help them identify any kinks in the design. The team has to have the Arion 1 ready go to by May 2015 to have a shot at breaking the record.

BATON ROUGE, La. (CBS Houston) – Sometimes the pleasure of a morning cappuccino is enhanced when the barista draws a pretty picture in the foam.

But a Baton Rouge woman was shocked when she got her beverages at a Starbucks in the Mall of Louisiana.

The barista had drawn a five pointed star in one drink and the number 666 in the other.

The pentagram, when oriented with the point facing downwards, is often used as a symbol by devil worshipers. The number 666 is associated with Satan in the book of Revelations.

Megan Pinion took a photo of the drinks and posted them to the Starbucks Facebook page.

The company immediately responded, reports

“We reached out to her through social media and apologized.” said Starbucks social media team spokesman Tom Kuhn. ”We’re taking the complaint seriously. We’re not sure who served her or what kind of beverage it was. It looks kind of caramel-ish in the photos.”

“I unfortunately can’t give the young man’s name who served it, because I was so appalled that I could not bring myself to look at him,” Pinion wrote in her post. “I am in no way judging his beliefs or dis-meriting his beautiful artwork, I am however judging his lack of professionalism and respect for others.”

Starbucks also issued a statement, “We have sincerely apologized for her experience. This obviously is not the type of experience we want to provide any of our customers, and is not representative of the customer service our partners provide to millions of customers every day.”

It’s not clear if the “brewhaha” will affect Starbucks’ policy on foam art.
