The Case Against Sports Drinks In Schools

  • Posted on July 15, 2017 at 5:37 pm

The beverage industry produces enough soda for every American to consume 52-gallons each year. Although its a mind-boggling amount, the fact of the matter is their industry is stagnating. With soda sales flat, theyre turning to newer products. One of their most popular markets is the educational system. Marketed under the guise of being healthier than plain water, and an implication they are more efficient at meeting hydration needs, sports drinks have become a prominent fixture in many schools. But do they meet those claims, or are they just contributing to the obesity epidemic among U.S. children?

Research by the American College of Sports Medicine has shown that for exercise lasting less than one hour, water is the preferred method of meeting hydration needs. Their research suggests that the loss of electrolytes and carbohydrates from exercise meeting this requirement does not require the burst supplied by sports drinks that one typically gets from a modern sports drink. Their research also has shown that for activities lasting more than one hour, or occurring under intense heat, there are benefits to using sports drinks for hydration. The rapid and continuous loss of minerals under these conditions presents a risk to participants, and replenishing them rapidly improves hydration and athletic performance.

Interestingly enough, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends the consumption of water, or a salt-containing flavored beverage to maintain hydration. Not only do they suggest such drinks, but the recommend children consume them regularly, regardless of whether they are thirsty.

Nutritional experts are beginning to question the need for having sports drinks available to kids during regular school hours. The logic of such an argument is that the activities occurring during regular school hours can not justify the extra calories kids consume when drinking these drinks. It has also been suggested that the extra electrolytes, which are just salt compounds, may even contribute to rising blood pressure among kids, when consumed in the absence of physical exertion. While the suggestions are controversial, most regulators are recommending limiting access during school hours, but making these beverages available during after school events and practices.

It seems inevitable that eventually, these drinks will be deemed of little nutritional or functional value for regular school day activities. After all, it doesnt seem reasonable to assume that kids or teens are at risk of becoming deficient in electrolytes while walking between classes. While they certainly offer benefits when consumed during intense exercise, theres little evidence to support the idea that they offer any positive benefits for normal day-to-day activity.

The Best Dry Skin Cream Product That Makes Skin Soft and Glowing!

  • Posted on July 15, 2017 at 12:06 pm

Are you frustrated with trying to find the dry skin cream product that works to make your skin feel soft, supple and younger-looking? I was in the same boat, so I went on a search to find a body cream that would actually help with the embarrassing problem.

First off, dry skin may be caused by various factors: dry climate, aging (break down of collagen and elastin), too much sun and other environmental conditions. Whatever the cause, caring for your skin dry and moistureless is very important but not very difficult! Skip the hype of the big brand products that have celebrities as the spokesperson, because when you understand and learn about the ingredients that are contained in a cream for dry skin you save money and discover what really works. How so?

Take for instance products that contain harsh chemicals — terrible for your skin. Harsh chemical ingredients like: mineral oil, a byproduct of petrolium production used as a cheap filler, even though it feels like it’s adding moisture to you dry skin, it interferes with perspiration, clogs pores and doesn’t allow skin to eliminate toxins; and, alcohol (names like ethyl alcohol or benzyl alcohol) just dry out and irritate skin not help your dry skin problem. Yes, all those dry skin cream products that are advertised telling you they add collagen back into your skin…just don’t cut it. No matter how much you apply the cream, it doesn’t absorb deep enough into the skin to stay on and moisturise the skin.

Collagen and elastin are important proteins in our body. In our younger years, both proteins were abundant and responsible for our skin to be soft, supple, pliant and smooth. However, here’s what the advertisement didn’t tell you — collagen is insignificant in skin care products because it’s too large of a molecule to penetrate the epidermis.

Now that you know what ingredients make skin dry and are a waste of money, let’s look at a natural ingredient found in the best dry skin cream product that makes your skin soft, glowing and younger-looking.

If you want the best and most effective skin cream to help your dry skin, look for an ingredient called Cynergy TK. Developed in New Zealand, this ingredient contains proteins (extracted from the wool of sheep) that are very similar to the human skin’s own protein. This amazing ingredient boosts the production of the body’s natural collagen and elastin thus improving firmness and elasticity, increases production of new skin cells and hydrates the skin. Clinical studies (using human volunteers) has shown to improve skin moisture by over 20% and improve skin moisture retention by 14%.

To learn more about Cynergy TK and other incredible natural ingredients found in dry skin cream products that help dry skin, visit my website today.

Things to Consider Prior to Exterior Wall Painting

  • Posted on July 15, 2017 at 11:42 am

Exteriors are as important as the interiors and walls are no different. A lot of attention and detailing is done while planning interior wall painting, the same is also applicable to the exteriors which most of us often ignore. Exterior walls go through seasonal wear and tear after being exposed to heat, dust and water through the year. Below are a few options that can be considered:

Exterior wall inspection: Before deciding the colour schemes it is essential to get an inspection done of your exterior walls. You can approach an expert for this; depending upon the feedback on the condition of the walls you can then take the next step. Clean up: Once you know the condition of your exteriors you can get them cleaned. This includes washing, scrapping of the old paint, removal of dirt and stains. For wall painting it is better to have plain surface so that the paint spreads evenly on the walls and the desired final finish is achieved.

Selection of exterior paints: Picking the right kind of exterior paint is of great importance, as painting them frequently isn’t possible and you would want your walls to look good for a certain amount of time at least. There are a wide range of paints that you can choose from ranging from gloss to texture depending on your budget and requirement. Some exterior paints are dust and algae resistant that would surely benefit your exterior walls.

Colour Selection: Once you know the kind of paint that your exterior walls require you can select the colour combinations. You can choose from colour schemes like monochromatic, analogous or the use of warm and cool colours, the choices are endless. Selecting high quality paint is also crucial as you would not want your paint to chip off in a few months of its application, making you go for a renovation all over again.

Application of Paint: After you have finalized the colours and the type of paint you want to use, the next step is application of paint. Following the pre and post wall painting instructions will add on to the long life of your walls. Do invest in a reputed painting contractor even if it costs you little more. Exterior walls are the first thing that people see; you would not want to leave a bad impression about yourself on them by getting a shoddy painting job done.

Exterior wall painting is not an easy job but with some research and expert help it will become an enjoyable one for you. Giving exterior walls a makeover can be great fun when you are open to experimentation. So get involved in the activity and astonish the world with your ideas. From vivid colour combinations to customized wall painting and choosing the apt exterior paints; the choices offered are vast, all you need to do is choose.

Hospital Facilities Condition Assessment FAQ1

  • Posted on July 15, 2017 at 11:40 am

If you run a hospital then you must consider a Hospital Facilities Condition Assessment! And you might not know what kind to get. So don’t be the kind of administrator who does whatever is most comfortable. Invest time and effort and find a consultant you trust and discuss your needs and budget and risk. Craft a plan that fits you. Otherwise a calamity might happen when you are unprepared and you will be paying off your miscalculation for the rest of your life.

Every Hospital Facilities consultant has gone thru rigorous training to certify and knows so many laws and conditions that you don’t have to.

Now we all know how most professionals give us unsatisfactory service. Especially with your hospital you want total satisfaction.

So don’t just say you don’t trust anybody so you won’t talk to any Hospital Facilities consultant. Talk to a number of consultants and find the one you trust.

I recommend you never act in desperation. Take a step back and allow yourself to choose between options. Once the calamity happens and you choose a solution its too late to change. So make a considered decision. It will only take you another few hours. Remember: you’re dealing with millions of dollars and people’s health and livelihood.

Here is the key:Before you make that appointment, ask these questions to the consultant:Can you see me immediately?Have you ever dealt with this kind of problem before?

The first 2 questions are pretty obvious.

You can get an impression of how competent a consultant is just by the way he answers the phone or the staff he hires. But you want to have your own personal experience before you choose.

Another thing you can do is to go online and look for client testimonials and case studies.

That’s a good start to find right Hospital Facilities Consultant.

CitizenM Hotel NYC

  • Posted on July 15, 2017 at 11:16 am

The new citizenM hotel in the heart of New York City on West 50th Street, in the middle of the theatre district, just off the corner of Broadway, and only three blocks north of Times Square is as -busy’ as its neighbourhood!

Rising from the ethos of this buzzing metropolis and featuring all its signature elements – from 14sq.m. mood-pad oriented guest rooms with lux washroom and interiors; floor-to-ceiling glass walls, plush interiors, loads of customized interactive spaces, aesthetically juxtaposed and emotionally connecting interior-exterior dynamics, et al – the hotel once again endorses its -luxury on a budget- motto.

Amazingly synchronised as a franchise, the hotel design rises up to the contextual architectural elements via its colours, art and eclecticism. Designed as a space that can cater to both locals and travellers, the hotel establishes an instant connect with its massive wall art -Come One, Come All’ on the facade, created by artist Jen Lui – a piece of art that refers to the historical context of Times Square. Once inside another centrally positioned striking artwork in the heart of the living room by Julian Opie as well as a rooftop bar has walking people carved into the granite cladding of the elevator core and filled with gold leaf. The artwork also divides the space in two: the double height living room area and the lower adjacent area with canteenM under the mezzanine floor. Contextually tuned in to the spirit of Times Square, the 22-storey, slim black aluminium clad and stucco building tower is set back from the street by a small attractive plaza and a rooftop bar – both designed as recognisable glass volumes that are almost carved out of the mass to accentuate the distinctive social function they have within the hotel. Above, a series of identical bedroom windows, the width of a bed, show the rooms, individually illuminated depending on the mood of the guest. The double-height ground floor, rooftop bar and artwork are more expressive, bright and dynamic, emphasising the importance of citizenM’s communal life and connection with art. Strategically placed designer furniture completes the plush ambience in these communal spaces.

In totality, the hotel continues to define the multi-functional qualities of modern mobile travellers by offering an environment that is suitable for work, play, socialising or relaxation.
