Look Out For The Assured Benefits Of Ayurvedic Natural Health Products!}

Submitted by: Kairali P

Fooding is most intrinsic to life and health and therefore also determines the most fundamental equation of living world. Nature has offered finest of landscapes and climates to grow and feed our necessities, and the cultural evolution in different parts of the world has been in consonance with the regional spreads of food resource as also the climate there. All such processes, whether adopted or bestowed, have contributed towards the well being of human races so that humanity could flourish and make progress.

However, in spite of all such arrangements, we have lagged behind in terms of optimum health and the disease loads are increasing. New generations suffer from reduced immunity and allied conditions of entire diversity. Interestingly, most of us know the reasons and blame our life patterns, particularly the manner in which we are cultivating our foods! Heavy use of fertilizers and pesticides has led to the generic contamination of the raw food product that we consume. These chemicals are now affecting our health and immune system. The last decade has seen the demand for natural health products growing rapidly! This also includes the increased use of Ayurvedic health supplements so as to cover up the deficiencies that have become part of life. Kairali ayurvedic group of India offers a wide range of health supplements in the form of Chawanprash, rasayans, bhasms and others that promise resurrections in bad health profiles in individuals.

General health products from Ayurveda

The general understanding and consciousness of health are expanding fast since the last few decades; courtesy to the education and allied curriculums that lay emphasis on the basal concepts like health, hygiene, nutrition, immunity and such others. The generations are at least learning about these parameters of life and health. But unfortunately, we are lagging behind in the adoption of best and healthy practices. Sometimes the transition seems to be impractical because the constraints have become very strong. Talk of the agriculture! Can we afford to go organic all at once? This may not be possible because our agro practices have become too much dependent on the chemical fertilizers and the use of pesticides cannot be ruled out if farmers have to save their raised crops in fields.

All this points to the inability to make the transition to the best practices like organic agriculture. In view of such gaps in moving to better processes and lifestyles what appears feasible is to add additional supplements in our food. Fortification of cereals and iodized salt could be called as the best examples! However, these limited practices cannot be the substitutes for what we consume in our food spectrums today! The biasing still remains. The general health products like those offered under the segment of traditional medicine systems (Indian Ayurveda) promise better hope to the generation of age and those of future.

Herbal Ayurvedic remedies for day to day problems

The general health products in Ayurveda also include those which are developed to offer relief in common illness and conditions like headache, cold and fevers. Most of us suffer from these and as stated above, the reduced immunity in modern generations make children and young more susceptible towards these conditions. Ayurveda offered medicines for these day to day illnesses and more significantly, these medicines are derived from some essential ingredients of nature rather than chemicals. The herbal cough and cold remedies make use of spices, herbs, and rasayans that boost the immunity from within. The overall advantage thus gets doubled because, in addition to the treatment of the condition, there is no side effect for the users who become more resilient against the diseases and germs.

Offering authentic Ayurveda with convenience!

While most of such remedies could be made in the home through common foods, spices, and condiments, generally we all shy from doing so. We prefer to take pills rather! The last few years saw the offering of general health and wellness products by noted Ayurvedic brands like Kairali! They offer herbal remedies for fever and colds in such forms which can be used in a convenient manner. This has eliminated the hassles for every common person, thus increasing the use of such products. Their headache remedies include the balms and fast relief ointments that act externally when applied on the forehead. Some herbs based oils are also offered that promise to cure headache problems of the root.

Eurovision ’04 winner Ruslana discusses her paths as singer, spokesmodel, stateswoman and source of inspiration

Monday, March 30, 2009

First becoming famous in her native Ukraine in the 1990s, long-haired self-described “AmazonRuslana gained international recognition for winning the 2004 Eurovision Song Contest with her song “Wild Dances,” inspired by the musical traditions of the Hutsul people of the Ukrainian Carpathian Mountains.

In the five years since, Ruslana has decided to use her name and public status to represent a number of worthy causes, including human trafficking, renewable energy, and even the basic concept of democratic process, becoming a public face of Ukraine’s Orange Revolution and later serving in Parliament.

Currently, she is on an international publicity tour to promote her album Wild Energy, a project borne out of a science fiction novel that has come to symbolize her hopes for a newer, better, freer way of life for everyone in the world. She took time to respond to questions Wikinews’s Mike Halterman posed to her about her career in music and her other endeavors.

This is the fifth in a series of interviews with past Eurovision contestants, which will be published sporadically in the lead-up to mid-May’s next contest in Moscow.

The Racy Ford Model T Speedster: From Tin Lizzie To Sports Car In 1920

By Warren Newson

The Model T Speedster didn’t figure in Ford’s line-up. In fact, in the early nineteen twenties there wasn’t much in the way of sports models the ordinary working guy could afford. The name “sports car” was still in the future, and so was Ford’s first V-8.

Human nature and human ingenuity didn’t take long to turn the Model T Ford’s basic transportation into something a lot more exciting, though. So if you were around in 1920 and you wanted to make the Tin Lizzie hotter and wilder, just what could you do?

“Dyke’s Automobile and Gasoline Engine Encyclopedia” tells you exactly what to do.

The best thing to do to the body was to just replace it with a raceabout type. You could build your own or you could buy “a complete outfit of radiator, hood, floorboards, rear gasoline tank, and body” for around $100.

The new body wasn’t just for looks; it made the Model T go faster by making it lighter, cutting down the frontal area, and streamlining it. Bodies could be just a cover over the engine with bucket seats out in the open and the fuel tank and spare tires behind like the Mercer and Stutz, or they could be streamlined from front to back, with a nicely tapered tail.

Just changing the body could add 10 to 15 miles an hour to the top speed.

Sometimes it was necessary to remove a leaf from each spring because of the lighter body, and you had to lower the steering column because the new sporty body sat lower.

If the hot-rodded Model T was to be used for race-track work only, the suspension could be lowered, and there were several ways of doing that. The best way was to have a new front axle made which effectively raised the axle spindles and lowered the front end. A cheaper method was riveting pieces of channel iron on the front of the frame, letting them stick out in front about 5 inches.

The back could be lowered by cutting off the side members in front of the rear axle and installing modified steel forgings.

Hotting up the engine was just as important as changing the body, and there was a lot you could do Ford’s early four-banger.

Heavy cast-iron pistons didn’t like to rev too high, so aluminum ones could be used. If you were financially challenged and brave as well, you could lighten the cast iron pistons by drilling holes in them! You could do the same to the con-rod, drilling holes in it and carefully dressing it with a file. (Don’t try this on your car!)

Raising the compression wasn’t hard. You could use an earlier cylinder head with shallower combustion chambers, or you could plane 1/8 inch of the existing cylinder head. You could even buy an after-market sixteen-valve high-compression head for the Model T Ford.

The breathing could be improved by using larger valves, and there were several types of high-speed cams available. For racing, stronger valve springs were recommended but they were noisier and likely to break valves, though you could buy tungsten steel valves as well.

A larger carburetor “say of the 1 inch size” and a larger intake manifold were both par for the course to get more power.

For a free flow exhaust the muffler could be removed for racing, and for road use you could remove the baffles or drill extra holes in them. To get that racing car rumble from the four-cylinder Model T engine, you could run the exhaust pipe into a larger cylindrical amplifying chamber, with a metal cap in the end with several holes drilled in it.

It was good practice to add an auxiliary oiling system and better cooling because of the extra power and higher revs. Better brakes were a must as well. The rear brakes of the Model T weren’t that good, so you were looking at around $16 a set for the best aftermarket brakes.

For a moderate price your Ford Model T Speedster could most likely hit 70 mile per hour, and if you wanted to spend more money, you could pick up a few more mph.

So it seems our grandfathers and great-grandfathers weren’t all that different to us when they were young. Nowadays young guys hot up engines, upgrade the running gear and change the bodies. Over ninety years ago, when my granddad had returned from the war to end all wars, young guys were hotting up engines, upgrading running gear, and changing bodies. The Ford Model T and the new after-market industry gave them the opportunity.

Heavy rains lash Mumbai, many parts of the city flooded

Tuesday, July 4, 2006

Heavy rainfall continued in the city of Mumbai in India for the fourth consecutive day today, leading to water-logging in many areas of India’s commercial capital and leading to the disruption of road and rail traffic. Operations at the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport have been affected and many incoming flights are being diverted to either Ahmedabad or Goa. Those planes that are taking off are doing so 30-45 minutes behind schedule owing to poor visibility. Local commuter trains on the Western Line are running up to half-an-hour late while the Central and Harbour Lines have been shut down due to water-logging.

Vehicular traffic has been hit hard as several arterial roads in the city have been immersed in waist-deep water. S.V Road has been closed to commuters at this point, and cars are being diverted to Linking Road. Dahisar, Goregaon, Andheri, Khar, Hind Mata and the Milan Subway have also been flooded. There are huge traffic jams in several parts of the city and Mumbai Police Commissioner A.N.Roy has asked citizens to avoid going outdoors unless absolutely necessary. Suburbs in the north of Mumbai, from Borivali to Virar, have been the worst hit. Schools and junior colleges have been asked to declare a holiday. The first year junior college admissions, which were supposed to have taken place today, have been postponed till tomorrow.

The Powai Lake has begun to overflow and the Mithi River is fast reaching its danger-mark, which is a cause of great concern for the municipal corporation, which has rushed rescue teams to low-lying areas. The Meteorological Department, which recorded 121 mm of rainfall at the Colaba Observatory and 152 mm of rain at the Santacruz Observatory, has predicted more heavy rainfall over the next 72 hours. Last July, Mumbai was hit by 944 mm of rainfall in one day, a deluge in which hundreds were killed and the entire city was in a state of disarray for a week. Meteorologists however insist the present situation is much smaller in scale than the calamity of 26/7 last year.

Oil leaking container ship might cause environmental catastrophe

Sunday, January 21, 2007

In the United Kingdom, an anti-pollution operation is under way after the stricken ship MSC Napoli started to leak dangerous heavy fuel oil.

The heavy fuel oil that is leaking from the beached Italian ship is extremely dangerous for the environment. Fear of pollution increased after the ship was further damaged during storms last Thursday. MSC Napoli was beached by Devon coastguards after it suffered heavy structual damage in the gale force storms of Thursday, 18 January 2007, that wreaked havoc across Northern Europe. The ship, which contains 160 containers of hazardous chemical substances, is listing at 35 degrees.

The entire 26-man crew was rescued by navy helicopters Thursday after severe gales. Cracks were found on both sides of the ship, but the current oil leak was not expected.

Around 2,400 containers were carried by the 62,000 tonne ship, some of which contain potentially dangerous hazardous chemicals.

The Coastguards have reported that up to 200 of the containers carrying materials such as perfume and battery acid are loose from the ship and they are looking for missing containers. South African stainless steel producer Columbus Stainless confirmed on Friday that there was at least 1,000 tonnes of nickel on board MSC Napoli.

A hole in the ship flooded the engine room and there’s now fears that the ship will break up. Saturday MSC Napoli was towed to Portland when a ”structural failure” forced the salvage team to beach it. As the storms have continued MSC Napoli has been further damaged.

The authorities have warned people about the pollution, which already has reached the beaches at Devon, but many want to see it on their own. Police have closed Branscombe Beach as more than 20 containers have broken up scattering their contents along the beach.

Sky News reported Sunday that the costs of the accident might be very high as thousands of pounds worth of BMW motorbikes, car parts, empty oak barrels and perfume might get lost in flooding containers.

Former Formula 1 designer unveils new electric car

Monday, November 9, 2009

Former Formula One McLaren designer Gordon Murray has unveiled a new all-electric car.

The car model, which is known as the T.27, is due to be developed over the course of the next 16 months with four prototypes. The process that will be used during the course of the manufacturing of the vehicle is called iStream. The technology iStream had been invented by Gordon Murray in 1999 and means that all the parts are designed using a computer.

The project has approximately received £9,000,000 (US$14,919,000) in investment. The electric car is designed for urban purposes, such as in cities or towns. The weight of the vehicle is just 600 kilograms. It has the ability to travel at speeds of up to 60 miles per hour and can go for a maximum of 100 miles between recharges.

The designer thinks that motorists will some day be travelling in vehicles like this. Murray believes that the new car will be ‘the most efficient electric vehicle on earth’.

Animal rights protestor found guilty of Oxford arson plot

Thursday, July 15, 2010

An animal rights protestor who left home-made petrol bombs at buildings of the University of Oxford has been jailed for ten years. Mel Broughton, a prominent member of the campaign group SPEAK, had denied the charges of conspiracy to commit arson and possession of an article with intent to destroy property, but the jury at Oxford Crown Court found him guilty by unanimous verdict after deliberating for over five hours.

Broughton made his devices using water bottles and sparklers. He put one on the roof of a cricket pavilion belonging to The Queen’s College in November 2006, and two under a portable cabin at Templeton College in February 2007. The device at the cricket pavilion, which contained twelve litres of petrol, went off and caused about £14,000 of damage. The Templeton College petrol bombs, together containing nine litres of petrol, did not ignite, and DNA on one of them linked Broughton to the attacks. He was protesting about the university’s decision to back the construction of an animal research laboratory, and a police search of his home found more sparklers, as well as documents about the university and its staff.

This was the second time that Broughton had been convicted of the offences: his conviction in February 2009 was overturned by the Court of Appeal and a re-trial was ordered. This began on June 16, and ended on Tuesday with Broughton’s conviction. Judge Patrick Eccles QC imposed a ten-year prison sentence, which will be reduced by two and a half years for the time that Broughton has already served in custody. When sentencing Broughton after the first trial, Judge Eccles said that these events “were part of a ruthless conspiracy to instil fear in all those connected to the laboratory.”

An officer from Thames Valley Police, Detective Superintendent Mark Jones, said that Broughton “was someone who believes direct action, in the form of planting explosives and setting fires, is acceptable”, adding that the conviction was the “right result”. A university spokesperson said that it “accepted the rights of protestors to voice their objections within the law”, but would work “to protect staff and students from criminal activity of any kind.”
