Genesis 2 NIV - Thus the heavens and the earth were 2 Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array. 2 By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. 3 Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done. Adam and Eve 4 This is the account of the heavens and the earth when they were created, when the Lord God made the earth and the heavens. 5 Now no shrub had yet appeared on the earth and no plant had yet sprung up, for the Lord God had not sent rain on the earth and there was no one to work the ground, 6 but streams came up from the earth and watered the whole surface of the ground. 7 Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being. 18 The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. 23 The man said, 25 Adam and his wife were both naked, and they felt no shame.

Fast Food Nutrition Facts Your baby's first solid foods - Pregnancy and baby guide When to start introducing solid foods Introducing your baby to solid foods – sometimes called weaning or complementary feeding – should start when your baby is around six months old. It's a really important step in their development, and it can be great fun to explore new flavours and textures together. To begin with, how much your baby takes is less important than getting them used to the idea of eating. Babies don't need three meals a day to start with, so you can begin by offering foods at a time that suits you both. Gradually, you'll be able to increase the amount and variety of food your baby eats, until they can eventually eat the same as the rest of the family, in smaller portions. Why it pays to wait until they're ready Research shows babies can get all the nutrients they need from breast milk or infant formula until they are around six months old. If you are breastfeeding, having breast milk alone up to the age of six months will protect your baby against infections. 1. 2. 3. Cups

HIV and AIDS - Diseases and Conditions The Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is the virus that causes Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS). HIV attacks the immune system, resulting in a chronic, progressive illness that leaves infected people vulnerable to opportunistic infections and cancers. The median time from infection to AIDS diagnosis now exceeds 10 years. AIDS is fatal if left untreated. The following activities can place a person at high-risk for HIV infection: engaging in unprotected sexual intercourse (anal or vaginal) sharing sex toys sharing needles or equipment for injecting drugs or steroids mother-to-child transmission during pregnancy, delivery, and breast-feeding Other activities pose a low risk for contracting the HIV infection, but they still carry a risk. HIV cannot be transmitted through: Casual, everyday contact Shaking hands, hugging, kissing Coughs, sneezes Giving blood Swimming pools, toilet seats Sharing eating utensils, water fountains Mosquitoes, other insects, or animal bites.

How to help a choking child - Pregnancy and baby guide Children, particularly those aged from one to five, often put objects in their mouth. This is a normal part of how they explore the world. Some small objects, such as marbles, beads and button batteries, are just the right size to get stuck in a child’s airway and cause choking. The best way to avoid this is to make sure that small objects like these are kept out of your child’s reach. No matter how careful you are, your child may choke on something. There can be other reasons why your child starts coughing. If you can see the object, try to remove it. Back blows for babies under one year Sit down and lay your baby face down along your thighs, supporting their head with your hand. Back blows for children over one year Lay a small child face down on your lap as you would a baby. If back blows don't relieve the choking and your baby or child is still conscious, give chest thrusts (see below) to infants under one year or abdominal thrusts (see below) to children over one year.
