Find Health Food Stores in San Diego Easily!

My sister Katrina and her husband Jared shifted to San Diego from Atlanta one year ago, my brother in law was posted their on a job from his earlier job. There, he was doing quite well as he had a better position and he earned better. He believed that the people at his work are nicer, friendlier and warm as compared to the people he worked with earlier. But my sister missed Atlanta as this was the place where she worked, she ate and hanged around. She says that she misses me the most as I was the only one who could put up with her non sense and I was the one who ate her crappy food, which unfortunately, is absolutely true. Although I am a little relieved that I am not a lab rat of my sister’s kitchen experiments anymore, I still think that she was better off in Atlanta because I am here to protect her. I understand that she has to live her life someday on her own but then, I just cannot help it, she is my little sister after all.

Jared has been a wonderful husband to my little sister(he better be, otherwise he might not see the light of the day), apparently, he is supportive as hell, he motivates Katrina to do better in the kitchen, he sees real potential in her. I think I am happy that Katrina moved away, that’s because at least she is away from my shadow and blossom in her own sweet way. The kid needs some space and time to be able to handle a household all by herself, she might need some help from me, for that, face timing is the best option.

Turns out that Katrina is better than I judged her, she set up her new house, very beautifully, I might add without my help, cannot believe that my little baby has grown up so early, it just feels like yesterday that she was messing around her room and I was yelling at her to clean the room as it was really smelly and just then she hugged me and said that she wanted me to help as she could not do it alone. Anyway, whenever she calls me she sounds so mature, but one day, I received a frantic call from her side. She was absolutely startled, she told me that Jared’s boss was coming over for an acquaintance dinner with his wife that very night and Jared told her that the family were absolute fans of home cooked healthy meals. My poor Katrina was bewildered and unfortunately, I could not help her, but then, I got an idea of helping her virtually.

I asked Katrina to search for a health food stores San Diego for food supplies, which she did. She assembled the food and headed home, I guided her over a video call instructing her about the cooking and plating.  By that evening, Katrina managed to do everything that she could, now she was worriedly waiting for the boss and his wife. Both of them came, appreciated the decor of the house and all of them sat to eat. They all were pleasantly surprised about the freshness and texture of the food, they absolutely loved it! They appreciated Katrina on her cooking skills and loved how she was a gracious host. Finally, my baby sister was happy and now she also learned how to cook properly, with patience. Now I can say that my sister has grown up to be a fine woman of great taste. I could not be prouder of her.

Brother Zoned on Instagram!

Weekends are the best thing ever! I mean a break from work and chores, to just do nothing or simply chill in life is such a fascinating concept. Although, I love my work and I can’t get enough of it, still I need a break, just because I can return to do my work on Monday with a fresh mind and body. So, my best friend Tanya from school decided to throw a house party last Saturday just to chill out with her friends and obviously, I was invited, in fact I helped her out organize the party because she lived alone and there was no one to help her. I arranged all the snacks and the disposable crockery for the party, I pre-ordered the pizza and decorated the house with some fairy lights, I also arranged a gaming console if any one wanted to play. Tanya was in charge of the invitations, the sound system and the music. She invited some of her school friends, her college friends ,some of her colleagues and her boyfriend. I knew almost all of them because Tanya talk about every one, as people started coming in Tanya got very excited and she also introduced me to every one and surprisingly, every one knew my name. I then invited every one to have help themselves with food and beverages and informed every one that Domino’s pizza was on it’s way and headed to the dance floor.

Later towards the night, I caught a guy staring at me, he was constantly looking at me and smiling, I couldn’t help but notice his constant eye on me, it made me uncomfortable, I went to Tanya to inquire about him, to which Tanya told that she hates him. Although he was the part of her group, he was the most disliked one, he is friends with her because he is her boyfriend’s best friend and she just couldn’t ignore him and unwillingly had to invite him to the party. Tanya then got busy in entertaining other guests and I got busy in dancing with other people.

After a while, I excused myself to use the facilities, the guy followed me. He thought that he will make a move on me as I was alone in that area, as soon as I came out of the washroom, he pounced on me and started complementing me for organizing the party. I thanked him and moved away from him, he held my hand and said that I was a beautiful girl and I shouldn’t be dancing alone,he came really close to me and stared deep into my eyes, this made me so uncomfortable that I went numb. I just untangled my hand from his grip and ran away, I told everything to Tanya’s boyfriend but he did not pay heed to it. I then decided to play a prank on him.

I later went to him and asked for a selfie, he happily obliged and then I took his Instagram handle and asked him to follow me, then I did something he would never forget, I posted the picture I clicked with him along with a brother caption for instagram and I formed a hashtag “#publicbrother” and made sure his photograph is viral. I asked all the girls to tag him with the same hashtag whenever and wherever they see him.

After a week, this post on my Instagram went viral and many girls posted the same picture and same hashtag with him, he got so frustrated that he called me to apologize and begged me to take down the post. By this incident, I have surely realized the power of social media and it’s pros.

                                                                                 The Tendencies Grow
                                                                                     -By Ana Karina
What is with all the negativity? Why is the youth of today becoming so pessimistic? Is it the unimaginable pressure we put on them or is it the rat race we put them in ?Why some parents have levied the weight of their own ambitions on their little ones? Above mentioned are some questions that are unanswerable and yet so common.

 I decided to interview three students of twelfth standard to see that what  state of mind they are going through. I also asked about their ambitions and what they wish to be when they grow up.

So, my first student is Aarav. “So , Aarav how are your preparations going on for the upcoming examinations? Any pre examination jitters?” I asked. Aarav replied” I am absolutely lost right now , I feel like I am constantly studying and still I don’t remember what I have studied. Jitters is an understatement, I feel numb and tensed. A thought haunts me always, what if I don’t score well, what if I am not able to get admission in a good college? My parents would be so disappointed in me. ” To which I replied, ” So much of stress for such little minds, shouldn’t you study stress free because that will garner better results? So, let’s change the topic for a bit, what do you do for fun and what do you aim to become? ” Aarav said ” I don’t have time to have fun, I have to study constantly, every waking hour, I only take food and washroom breaks. Also, I wanted to become a writer but my parents wanted me to pursue Chartered Accountancy(C.A) , so I couldn’t say no, so I am preparing for C.A.” I just couldn’t believe that this wonderful biy was under so much of pressure. I then finished the interview by wishing him all the best.

My next interviewee’s name was Akriti, she was the only one who was confident and happy.I started the interview by asking ” How are you feeling about the upcoming examinations? ” She confidently answered” I am confident about my prepration, I know what I have studied and hopefully I will do well in my exams. Even if I don’t do well in my exams, I know I will be able to do something good with my life. There is no pressure on me and my parents fully support my own decisions and always appreciate my efforts” “That’s really good” I said, I further asked her” What do you aim to become? Also, what do you do for fun?” Akriti replied” I aim to become a happy and satisfied person and whereas my career choice is concerned, I wish to become a counsellor. I want to pursue psychology and for fun I play FIFA with my parents every Sunday by logging into the game online. Click Here to know more.” I then concluded the interview by appreciating her attitude towards her life  and wished her all the luck.

My third interviewee was Himani, she was the such a quiet child and didn’t answer much of my questions because she didn’t have much time to answer as she had to study. Her parents were so strict that they wouldn’t even let her talk to me because they thought that I was there to brainwash her to stop studying seriously. I just could ask one question that “How are you feeling?” to which she replied” I am scared to death, I don’t know what will I do, my parents have told me that if I don’t score well, they will marry me off to an old man and if I don’t study or take even a small break to refresh myself, they start yelling at me and pressurize me to study. They don’t even let me sleep for more than four hours.” I said”Oh god, this is absolute torture, do you need help?” She was about to answer but beyond that her parents took her away.

I believe that it is good to provide your kids with quality education and it is even better to inspire them to do well in life, but levying your aspirations on them is an absolute no-no. Suicidal tendencies grow in such cases and children end up being dissatisfied, disappointed and dejected.

Choosing a medical career is one of the best decisions ever

Choosing the right career is a very big decision for students. Millions of students become graduates every year, but very few can choose the right career because they don’t even know what personality and the attitude they have. There is no clear image in picking out the right option. First of all, you must know where and what your interest is, do you have the attitude and personality in building a career in it or not and then choose your career. Don’t choose your career by force, i.e. due to your parents, families or friends.

There are different career options, but before that, you must choose the right stream for you. You must have a clear vision, whether you have to choose Science, Commerce or Arts. You can select any of those three streams you are interested in because it has a high scope in their places to grow your future. Here we will talk about the personality, attitude, passion, skill of the students choosing the science stream and making medical as their right career option.

Choosing medicine as a profession is not so easy a task, because you must have patience, the ability to learn and serve, and importantly you must be passionate. The medical field is very vast and you will find a lot of reasons why a medical career is the best option. Let us discuss some of the reasons below:

1. Diverse Career Opportunity: It gives you a broad range of opportunities as there are more than 60 specialties you can select for future jobs. You can opt to be an MBBS, MD, Public Healthcare, Biomedicine, Dentistry, Physiotherapy, Pharmacy, Nursing, Veterinary, Health Management or a Medical specialist like Cardiologist, Orthopedic, Gastrologist, Urologist, Anesthesiologist, Plastic Surgeon and many more. If you are a kid lover and want to be around kids, choose to be a Pediatrician. You won’t have to worry about choosing a career as you will find a lot of time during your degree period and automatically, you will be able to opt it out.

2. Placement: After completing your medical degree, you will be able to find jobs anywhere in the world. There is no country in this world that does not have a hospital. The only thing you have to know is the language i.e. English or the local language.

3. Alleviate someone’s pain and suffering: This is the service that you have to do. Being a general person you have seen many pains and sufferings in the hospital but you couldn’t do anything except watching. As a doctor, you can play a big role in curing and restoring health, decreasing the pain and sufferings of the patient, motivate and bring hope in them.

4.Respect and High Demand: Doctors have the most respected place, they are respected by all the patients as well as their family members.

Role of Iodine from Spirulina

A type of blue-green algae, Spirulina which is consumed by people as a dietary supplement. It contains antioxidants and other nutrients in abundance that benefit body and brain. Known to be rich in vitamins and minerals ,it also contains some varying levels of iodine which is a trace element that is naturally present in certain foods, especially foods that come from the ocean. 

Since it has several minerals, but mostly concerned question is does spirulina contain iodine and what role does it play ?

Expertly, here are the reasons why iodine is present in spirulina.

The content of iodine in spirulina varies widely and can go up to more than 4,500 micrograms.

Iodine plays an essential role in thyroid function , as well as the health of the skeleton and central nervous system. The recommended daily requirement of iodine is 150 micrograms, but the amount you get from spirulina varies. A serving of spirulina can contain from 16 micrograms, or about 10 percent of your daily need, up to over 15,000 micrograms. Too much iodine can cause a goitre and thyroid deficiencies, but an overdose is quite rare. The upper limit for iodine is 1,100 milligrams per day. The impact of too little iodine reaches further. It also affects children, born to mothers with severe iodine deficiency can suffer from stunted growth, severe and irreversible intellectual disabilities, and problems with movement, speech, and hearing. It is true that iodine and iron are the most abundant nutrients present in Spirulina, it also contains small amounts of other minerals and vitamins. The amount of iodine varies significantly and it depends completely on the salt content in the water that is being used for spirulina cultivation.

Iodine and Thyriod Function

The body needs iodine in small amounts to function properly. It serves as an essential component of thyroid hormones. Every cell in the body depends upon thyroid hormones for regulation of their metabolism .

Thyroid, which has tiny cells that capture the circulating iodine, takes in and oxidizes it so it can begin to be used to create thyroid hormones that make ensure healthy functioning of the heart, brain, and other organs. The iodine present in spirulina is used by the thyroid gland to produce thyroid hormones to support a healthy metabolism. Low iron, magnesium, B vitamins, or iodine levels can result in unexplained fatigue.

Too much of Spirulina can be harmful, 

Excess of iodine is linked to thyroid cancer and hyperthyroidism, which is when your thyroid produces too much hormones.

CAUTION : 

A typical recommended dose of Spirulina is about 500mg. But the product should only be used after consulting the doctor. It is important to inform the doctor about any medications or supplements in use because certain ones might interact with Spirulina. Some can be contaminated with compounds that are toxic to your body.

Consuming spirulina may cause headaches, allergic reactions, muscle pain, sweating, and insomnia in some cases. People with allergies to seafood, seaweed, and other sea vegetables should avoid taking it. Also, people with autoimmune disease should avoid it because the body overreacts and amplifies the activity of the immune system. This exacerbates the symptoms of a pre-existing disease or gives rise to severe inflammation.

 

True to it’s name: Majestic tree hound

George and Fred are twin brothers, living in different continents, George is studying in Australia and Fred was in his home country USA. They exchange letters weekly to tell each other about what is going on in their respective lives. So one fine day Fred has a pleasant encounter in his city and he describes it in a letter written to George.

Dear  George,

Hope you are doing good and this letter finds you in best of health and high spirits. This past week has been a rather eventful one, I have a lot of things to tell you. So, here it goes, on Monday I was on my to the college, as usual, strutting by the street, enjoying the beautiful sunny day, I suddenly saw from the corner of my eye that a very elegant and adorable dog was roaming around the street, he had a collar, but nothing was written on it. The poor fellow was sad and seemed hungry and lost, he surely had lost his owner and was stranded there. I got really worried , so, I started searching for a person who by any chance had lost his or her pet, but to my dismay, no one had lost one. I went near the dog to give him something to eat, and as soon as I dropped my sandwich for him, he leapt towards it to devour it, he then seemed a little relieved. So, I left him there on the street, thinking his owner will find him by the next day, but unfortunately, he was still sitting there, stranded, sad and melancholy. I could not look at his sad state anymore, so I lovingly brought him back home, although he was scared , he was happy to see a home and loving faces too. Mom and dad were a little apprehensive at first, but by looking at it’s sad eyes, they could not say no. They deeply cleaned the dog in the garage and took him in our home inside. The poor fellow was hungry so we fed him first and slowly he gained trust that we were not going to harm him, so he started opening up to us the next day.

I googled his appearance to know his breed, he was a majestic tree hound .True to it’s breed, this dog had an astounding temperament, he was so affectionate, social and playful. He was so well trained and intelligent. He was so energetic that he kept running around the whole neighborhood and was so friendly, especially to kids and senior citizens. I named him Booster as he was full of energy and enthusiasm and George, you would not believe that he was so intelligent that he understood my commands so easily, I repeated my commands a couple of times, and he understood what I was saying. I was so happy because Booster was a fur ball of joy. Even mom and dad enjoyed Booster’s company, but sadly, we realized that Booster’s real owner would have been worried sick, so we decided to put up posters all over town so that his owner could contact us. Finally ,two days later, his owner contacted us about Booster, described about his appearance, and came to our home to take him back. We found out that Booster’s actual name is Draco(I genuinely think that Booster is a better suited name for the dog) .The owner told us that the dog  got lost when his owner got busy on his phone while taking a walk outside, the actual owner thanked us and took Booster back, but he gave us his address, in case we wanted to meet Booster. So, whenever you will visit, we will surely visit Booster.

Yours lovingly,

Fred
