The Secrets To Handling Passive-Aggressive People. 'Time Poverty' Is a Real Issue For Women Everywhere, Says Melinda Gates - Verily. Have you ever wished there were more hours in the day?

More time to stay on top of your to-do list, pursue your hobbies, connect with friends, maybe even get to the gym? You’re not alone. Women across the world are suffering from “time poverty.” Melinda Gates addressed the issue in the annual letter that she published this week with her husband, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates. Worldwide, women spend an average of 4.5 hours per day on unpaid work—more than double the amount of time men spend. In developing nations, the increased hours that women spend doing unpaid work translates to fewer available hours to pursue education, healthcare, and paid work that might help support their families. One area where we see a noticeable gender gap in the U.S. is in time spent engaged in leisure activities. I can’t help but wonder how this data correlates with overall quality of life between genders.

Women don’t just deserve to pursue their individual interests and relationships, they need to. 5 Things I'd Tell My Teenage Self: This girl.

Human Use Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth I have been consuming Food Grade DE for over a year now. The results have been quite good (skin, nails, hair). DE builds collagen from within, including the lungs. Considering our wonderful low carb lifestyles, I should think this would be interesting to those that are dealing with sagging skin, etc. The best way to drink this (there is no taste or odor), is to put a tablespoon in a water container, let it settle, and continue to fill the container leaving the layer of DE at the bottom.

This one tablespoon will last about 6 months. I always squeeze a bit of citrus in my water because you want it to make orthosilicic acid.

Have You Ever Wondered Why Marijuana Is Illegal? Joe Rogan Brilliantly Summarizes… April 21, 2015 by Amanda Froelich The Declaration of Independence is PRINTED on hemp paper, yet it's a banned and taboo product... Ever wonder why? Joe Rogan is one of those activists who has a way of explaining things in a format everyone can understand. And in the brilliant video below, Joe uses his famous means of expression to cover a topic that’s been on many peoples’ minds lately: Why is Cannabis illegal? Hemp is one of the strongest and most durable of all nature textile fibers, is less expensive to produce as paper than trees, and lasts longer than most fabrics and while also being able to withstand harsh conditions. In fact, hemp in its diverse forms is so useful, many people have been wondering why this plant – whose fibers have been used for thousands of years – is so restricted in modern-day times.

After you watch the video featuring Joe Rogan below, it might just make sense… 7 Ways To Lose Weight After 50. Msn health & fitness While 50 may be the new 30, there are some physiological truths that can still make you look and feel like 50—especially when it comes to losing weight. All those years of playing sports, sitting, walking up and down stairs, and moving in general take its toll on joints and muscles; you may notice they’re a little stiffer and sorer than they were a few decades ago. Then, there’s the issue of our ever-slowing metabolisms. According to the American Council on Exercise, your resting metabolic rate (the ability to burn calories while doing nothing) decreases by about 1 to 2% percent per decade thanks to a decrease in the amount of muscle you carry around (muscle burns calories) and increased fat mass (which is metabolically inactive). To add insult to pudge-boosting injury, our diets often don’t change enough to account for this metabolic slow-down, meaning weight can creep up slowly but surely with every birthday. 1.

South Beach Diet 101. Best Card Messages - Greeting Card Messages. Blog - The Definitive Guide To Magnesium & Magnesium Supplements. Magnesium is the second most abundant mineral inside our cells and the second most common deficiency, next to Vitamin D. Recently scientists have discovered the ‘Magnesome’, a protein encoding gene incorporating Magnesium, suggesting that the levels of Magnesium in the body may epigenetically alter the expression and behaviour of some of the proteins in our bodies, so altering the expression of health or disease of tissues. These scientists concluded that “Presently we can annotate some 5% of the human genome as inheriting the capability of binding Magnesium ions.”

(Piovesan et al. 2012) 0.05% of our body weight is Magnesium. (20-28gm). Magnesium is found naturally in dark leafy vegetables, beans, nuts, seeds and whole grains, all of which take their Magnesium from the soil. It is absorbed throughout the small intestine (Hardwick LL et al. 1991). However, Magnesium is arguably one of the most depleted minerals in the soil.

By Sarah Vine Published: 01:03 GMT, 12 March 2014 | Updated: 10:59 GMT, 12 March 2014 Fascinating stuff in yesterday’s Mail from paediatric neurologist Dr Richard Saul, who argues in a new book that Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is wildly over-diagnosed and that thousands of children are being identified as victims and treated with drugs they do not need.

Instead, their behaviour is often a sign of simple, resolvable problems such as poor diet, lack of sleep, hearing loss, learning difficulties — even just old-fashioned boredom. He quotes the case of one boy whose inability to concentrate turned out to be caused by anaemia and a girl whose disruptive behaviour in class was down to extreme short-sightedness. Attention: Sarah Vine says the problems lie not with the children but with the paucity of parenting. File picture Their symptoms disappeared once the underlying problems had been solved.

The GROW Model - Coaching Training From MindTools. A Simple Process for Coaching and Mentoring Learn how to use the GROW Model, with James Manktelow & Amy Carlson. As a leader, one of your most important roles is to coach your people to do their best. By doing this, you'll help them make better decisions, solve problems that are holding them back, learn new skills, and otherwise progress their careers. Some people are fortunate enough to get formal training in coaching. However, many people have to develop this important skill themselves. This may sound daunting. The GROW Model is a simple yet powerful framework for structuring your coaching or mentoring sessions. About the Model GROW stands for: Goal. The model was originally developed in the 1980s by performance coach Sir John Whitmore, although other coaches, such as Alan Fine and Graham Alexander, have also helped to develop it.
