Strider Bikes And Their Features

The holiday season is coming, and if you are searching for the best gift to your 1+year old youngster or niece/nephew, you might like to consider giving him/her the Strider Bike. As opposed to a tricycle, a Strider Bike is usually a No-Pedal PRE-bike that works to help you a child find out balance and coordination prior to he/she learns for you to pedal a two-wheel bicycle. The word PRE-bike emphasizes for the bike function that will meet the development of a child before he/she could ride a bike.

Some parents want to give the best with regards to children, thus giving your child expensive tricycle or even bicycle with coaching wheels. What they cannot realize is which a child needs to find out about balance first. The first in addition to the foremost objective of a tricycle is actual to give a child an awareness of-of balance prior to he/she is prepared for a two-wheel bicycle. Due to the reason, three-wheel bicycle (tricycle) is created to give awareness of-of security for your parents and your child. The fact is not all tricycles are created equal. Some tricycles might tip over, scrape ankles or perhaps difficult to pedal which will make a child all the most afraid to experience a bicycle. Continue reading Strider Bikes And Their Features

Water wars: should we ban the sale of plastic water bottles?

Should we ban the sale of plastic water bottles?

YES If Amy Currul and other teens have their way, the sale of bottled water will soon dry up in Arlington, Massachusetts. Amy, 18, and her classmates are fighting for a ban on the sale of plastic water bottles in their town. Many schools and government offices have similar bans, but Concord, Massachusetts, is the only U.S. town where it’s illegal to sell bottled water.

The best gift for an established or aspiring foodie is solid, high-quality cookware

Aspiring foodie is solid, high-quality cookware

We are obsessed with food. Everywhere I look there are food philosophers, and food activists with manifestos. There are the slow-food movement and Food not Bombs, the AMAP anti-food-mile warriors in France, pro-GM missionaries, the natural food movement (recently joined by Wolfgang Puck in LA) and the People’s Food Movement. There are the raw foodists, living juice lifestylers, wild food foragers, organic evangelists, the brotherhood of farmer’s markets and even a Found Food Movement in Portland, Oregon.

On the darker side, fast-food guzzlers have grown so plentiful that 30,000 die of obesity annually in English hospitals. The government warns that in 20 years half of us will be too fat to get medical insurance (Heat magazine readers fully expect the other half to be anorexic).

One way or another, we probably don’t spend any less time thinking about where our next meal is coming from than our cave-dwelling ancestors did. We’ve just found new ways to do it. But it looks as though something something has gone curiously wrong in our relationship with food.

The most highly praised of our famous chefs are the highbrow molecular gastronomists like Heston Blumenthal who have labs rather than kitchens, and make things like Trompe L’oeil sausages, goose-liver whipped cream and liquid quiche Lorraine. What they do is wildly entertaining conceptual art, and I don’t believe they care a jot if they give people indigestion–but in the end, they’re just messing about with food.

Given that there are so many ways of looking at feeding ourselves, and that food is a political issue as well as an obsession, an individual has to know where they stand. Personally, I’m on the side of the Hippocratic dictum–‘Let food be your medicine, and medicine be your food’. I’m too impatient to be a good cook, but I am totally fascinated by the nutritional properties of foods. Planning menus around themes like South American Spice or whatever is a dotty irrelevance to me. I think the secret of cooking lies in nourishing people in a way that revives them, body and soul.

How do use effective cookware ?

Research is vital in knowing what to feed someone who is stressed or taking exams (almonds for memory-boosting and stress-reduction, fish for brainpower, for instance). It’s exhilarating to discover what foods will restore someone who’s depressed, having digestive problems, pale and lacking in energy, and so on. And then see the food do its work. In this context, most fashionable recipe books and TV shows become redundant, and you turn instead to archaic herbals and international databases of the medicinal uses of herbs, vegetables and fruits.

Judging by the large number of online cookware shops, our lust for kitchen equipment is an extension of the infatuation with food, and this makes them a good choice for Christmas presents. You really can’t give cooking kit to women, even in these post-feminist times–it’s like giving a woman a Hoover. But you can give cookware to the large number of husbands who cook, and you probably should give really good cookware to young people, especially undergraduates.

Our advice when you use cookware

Forget the chocolate fountain, the cappuccino machine, the gadgets that need batteries, anything coated in non-stick polytetrafluoroethylene, or the expensive corkscrew that is no match for the 5 [pounds sterling] Waiter’s Friend. To help freshmen establish a reasonable relationship with food, possibly for the rest of their lives, and support them through their course, buy them solid cookware in materials that have stood the test of time.

It takes roughly 15 minutes to prepare a great supper in a humble terracotta chicken (or fish) brick. You put it in a cold oven on a medium setting and an hour later get fabulously nourishing chicken and vegetables cooked in their own juices which make the cook look like a genius. It’s perfect for people who don’t have time to cook and will make the dodgy late-night burger lose its appeal. Again for new cooks, the cast-iron casseroles by Le Creuset, Staub or Lafont in Buenos Aires make delicious, nourishing food and are coated in thick enamel in lovely colours.

Lustrous copper pans lined in stainless steel, though they don’t speed up cooking times, do turn a good cook into a maestro (it’s something to do with even heat distribution) and make great presents for men. My husband wants sharp knives by Wusthof, Henckels or Chroma knives from Japan. If I could, I’d buy him a double-oven Wolf range or an Aga. Not that we’re obsessed with food or anything.

What you need to know about fad diets?

Lose up to 10 pounds in 30 days! You will look and feel better than ever before. No more forbidden foods or grueling exercise programs. The pounds melt away as you sleep.

Advertisements like this promote the latest fad diet for quick and easy weight loss. However, these diets limit your food selections and are usually based on testimonials rather than scientific studies. Americans spend billions of dollars each year on fad diets, but do any of them really work long-term? Are they healthy? Four teens describe the fad diets they have tried in order to control their weight. Continue reading What you need to know about fad diets?

Why Diet Drugs Can Be Diet Dangers?

Diet pills and supplements can promote weight loss, but they also can carry big health risks. Don’t be dazzled by ads promising miracles.

If you’ve ever wished you could lose a few–or many–pounds in a fast and easy way, chances are you’ve paid attention to headlines like these in advertisements seen everywhere these days. Even some serious publications run full-page ads that promise, with lots of exclamation marks, that a company’s pills, drinks, or supplements will make your extra pounds miraculously melt away.

You Will Lose Weight – GUARANTEED!

Teens seem particularly vulnerable to such ads. They can be influenced by their own self-image–and sometimes subtly by peers, parents, and coaches–to lose weight in order to look good, perform better, or be more popular.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention conducted a study of 11,631 high school students and found that more than 43 percent of the girls surveyed said they were “on a diet.” The most common dieting methods used were skipping meals, induced vomiting after eating, and taking diet pills. Diet pills can be effective in helping some people lose weight, but are they right for you? Continue reading Why Diet Drugs Can Be Diet Dangers?
