Why Do Some Men Have Dogs And Not Wives?

.

.

.

1. The later you are, the more excited your dogs are to see you.

2. Dogs don’t notice if you call them by another dog’s name.

3. Dogs like it if you leave a lot of things on the floor.

4. A dog’s parents never visit.

5. Dogs agree that you have to raise your voice to get your point across.

6. You never have to wait for a dog; they’re ready to go 24 hours a day.

7. Dogs find you amusing when you’re drunk.

8. Dogs like to go hunting and fishing.

9. A dog will not wake you up at night to ask, “If I died, would you get another dog?”

10. If a dog has babies, you can put an ad in the paper and give them away.

11. A dog will let you put a studded collar on it without calling you a pervert.

12. If a dog smells another dog on you, they don’t get mad. They just think it’s interesting.

13. Dogs like to ride in the back of a pickup truck.

And last, but not least:

14. If a dog leaves, it won’t take half of your stuff.

We pay gurus/religious leaders a fortune to say things that we hope will dull our pain.

How many of us fail to read the connection between the horrific negative impact that NON-ACTION and RESISTANCE play in our lives. Look around you and you will find that we abuse drugs; we daily eat the abuse and intimidation from lovers, family, so-called friends and the government. We allow the banks to use and abuse us. We end up in hospital with stress related illnesses.

We pay gurus and religious leaders a fortune to say things that we hope will dull our pain and give us hope. Many of us are drinking as if they are going to take alcohol from the market. We today live in a society that is under financial pressure all the time. We work like crazy and even neglect our children in an attempt to survive one more month.

Some of us are well qualified and experienced in our selected professions, but fail to get a job because of our skin colour and the toxic state of the economy world-wide. Everyone have a powerful voice inside them that can direct their lives on a moment to moment basis. This guide and wisdom source has been carefully polluted with many layers of conditioning and habits since early childhood.

We are so busy running away mentally and physically that we fail to notice the little voice inside us that is well cocooned by an endless range of perceptions. We can explode this wall of RESISTANCE today if we are brave enough to admit that we have become slaves to the system. The little voice and brilliant genius in our hearts and minds tell us to go for gold and do what needs to be done, but we ignore these messages because we are shit scared to go up against the endless perceptions, rules and regulations that enclosed us in our cold little igloo.

We more often than not know exactly what we need to do or what we should avoid, but do little or nothing while we helplessly hammer against the wall of RESISTANCE built with bricks of fear. A large percentage stopped attacking the wall of RESISTANCE and fall apart when confronted by challenges. These individuals either live in denial or justify their NON-ACTION with stupid excuses.

 

Spend some time today gathering information about the stuff that you know need to be completed that you have been postponing for far too long now. The wall of RESISTANCE consists out of thousands of bricks manufactured by ignorant individuals with no vision. Ignorance is the biggest killer of dreams. Knowledge shines a light into the dark places in our minds that we run away from. Information is your key to success and freedom. I will continue this series tomorrow.

Struggling to drift off to dreamland each night?

.

There’s no question that many of us would like to improve the quality of our sleep each night. Tossing, turning, waking up frequently, struggling to fall back asleep — and that’s if we can even drift off in the first place.

We are notorious for allowing bright screens into the bedroom and daily doses of anxiety to hit the pillow alongside our heads — seemingly subconscious habits that leave us annoyingly alert rather than calm and relaxed.

One of the best ways to bring the body into its relaxed state is one we shouldn’t have to think about: breathing. You read that right. Proper inhales and exhales have become a lost art among today’s fast-paced, highly stressed society, robbing us of one of the best (not to mention free) tools for logging quality shut-eye. Taking the time to address your breathing could be just what you need to shut down your stress and solve your sleep problems, killing the proverbial two birds with one soothing stone.

Struggling to drift off to dreamland each night? Give these six breathing tricks a try at bedtime.

Take it slow.

We know, we know, you already tried that! But not so fast — many of us don’t actually know what if feels like to recruit the diaphragm, abdominals and lungs to take in a full breath, hold onto it for a moment and then gradually let it go. Focusing your mind and body on taking these slow, deep breaths helps reduce heart rate and blood pressure simultaneously, further calming down your entire system.

A 2010 study even found that this slower breathing style allows the parasympathetic system (which is responsible for your ability to relax) to override your sympathetic system (which controls your automatic stress response). With slow breathing, you’ll feel the rib cage expand to let the lungs fill completely, and then fall back into its natural position as you exhale. Lie down in bed on your back and try breathing slowly for 10 minutes before nodding off.

Try the 4-7-8 technique.

According to Dr. Andrew Weil, a renowned physician, holistic health author and founder of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine, the relaxation breathing exercise known as the 4-7-8 breath can work wonders before bedtime (as well as any other time you’re feeling stressed).

To relieve your anxious mind, sit up in bed with your back straight, and press the tip of your tongue on the roof of your mouth right behind your front teeth. Maintaining that position, close your mouth and inhale through your nose for four counts, hold that breath for seven counts, and then exhale through your mouth around your tongue for eight counts. Repeat this pattern until you have completed four full breaths.

Use a traditional meditative breath.

If you find that a busy, anxious mind is your primary sleep destroyer, it may be time to finally give meditation a try. Through her research, neuroscientist and meditation expert Catherine Kerr has found that focusing on the breath is the very first component required in a mindfulness meditation practice. Connecting with the rise and fall of the breath, and noticing where you feel that breath move within the body, can help you begin the process of relaxing tense muscles. This physical change also helps you let any negative or stressful thoughts and emotions come and go as you remain tied to the breath and your body. Complete this breathing exercise for eight to 10 minutes to reap the full benefits each night.

Channel your yoga skills.

Kapalbhati breathing (also known as Blowing in Firm pose) requires focusing 100 percent of one’s energy on the breath. In Sanskrit, kapal means forehead and bhati means shining, making this movement known for its mind-cleansing benefits. It may also help rid the lungs of carbon dioxide and fill them with fresh oxygen, keep the digestive system healthy, improve circulation in the abdominal area and keep the heart healthy. Try it out by sitting in a kneeling position with your back straight and hands resting on your knees. Take a breath in through your nose and exhale powerfully through your mouth by contracting your abdominal muscles in short, measured bursts.

Alternate nostrils.

Another great anxiety-relieving breathing technique based in the practice of yoga is called nadi shodhana, one of the most common forms of pranayama, or breath control. By alternating between each nostril for the inhale and exhale components of the breath, the body and mind are said to achieve a sense of balance and neutrality. While mouth breathing subconsciously tells the brain that the body is stressed, breathing through the nose sends signals of relaxation and homeostasis. When performing this breathing exercise at night before bed, start with the right nostril. Sit in a comfortable position with your back straight, and close off the left nostril with the right ring finger to inhale. Then close off the right nostril with the right thumb to exhale. Keep your eyes closed throughout the exercise.

Double down on the exhale.

One more for the yogis out there! Many pranayamic breathing techniques rely on an exhale that is double the length of the previous inhale to inspire calming and restorative benefits. A 2006 study found that this form of voluntary, slow breathing has the ability to help reset the body’s autonomic nervous system by synchronizing neural elements in the heart, lungs and brain. And practitioners have found that by focusing on the count associated with the breath, the technique keeps us from thinking stressful thoughts and becomes a more effective substitute for counting sheep. To test it out, lie down in bed on your back, inhale for three seconds, exhale for six seconds and repeat until you’ve fallen asleep.

A supercomputer capable of detecting whether a patient will die.

.

A supercomputer capable of detecting whether a patient will die in hospital has been developed in Boston.

Doctors at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center claim results generated by the machine are accurate: “We can predict with almost a 96% confidence that these patients will have this probability of dying – so, the computer says you’re gonna die, you’re probably going to die in the next 30 days,” project leader Dr Steven Horng told BBC News.

The supercomputer uses artificial intelligence to determine your fate in hospital, but also to work out conditions before the doctor has even diagnosed them.

Every three minutes the machine monitors the patient, measuring and collecting data on everything from oxygen levels to their blood pressure.

The system also gathers data on their medical history and all the medication they’ve taken which are compared with more than 250,000 people’s medical data from the last 30 years.  Doctors believe this should help identify the quickest possible diagnosis, thereby speeding up treatment.

On the surface, the technology appears to pose a threat to human jobs but Horng argues that the supercomputer will actually help doctors perform their work better.

 “Our goal is not to replace the clinician,” he explained. “This artificial intelligence is really about augmenting a doctor’s ability to take care of patients.”

Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center has previously used similar medical tech innovations using Google Glass to look through patient records.
