How to Choose Fine Pearls

How to Choose Fine Pearls

by: Amanda Raab

Pearls are very alluring and hold a quality that both defines elegance and natural beauty. There are more varieties and availability of pearls today than ever before. The “cultured pearl” now rivals with fine diamonds, sapphires, emeralds, and rubies.
Today most pearls are cultured, meaning that the mollusk is purposely inserted with an irritant or “nucleus” from which it creates a pearl. A better way to think of the difference between natural pearls and cultured pearls is to think of the natural pearl as a result of the mollusk working alone and the cultured pearls as a product of nature being helped by science. Cultured pearls are not “fake” like many people may think...

Screening For Breast Cancer With No Compression An

Screening For Breast Cancer With No Compression And No Radiation

by: Brenda Witt

Who would have thought that a technology for detecting breast cancer used today actually had its’ roots dating back to 480 B.C.? Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging (DITI) is a fairly new technology that represents a practice that was once used by Hippocrates. This technology is based on a technique that Hippocrates would use as he spread mud over his patients and then watched to see which areas dried first. It was in those places on the body that could show a disease.
It wasn’t until 1957 that the first modern application of thermography came into existence when a Canadian doctor discovered that the skin temperature over a breast tumor was higher than that of healthy tissue...

Are Astrologers just plain stupid?

Are Astrologers just plain stupid?

by: Adrian Fourie

We live at an interesting time of scientific knowledge. Scientists say that you cannot gain an advantage over the Casino, since the odds are stacked against you. Scientists also say that Astrology does not seem feasible, since it does not fit in with known scientific laws. However, it is estimated that approximately 100 million people in the world either follow Astrology or see that there is some truth in it.
Are all these people gullible or stupid? Do people just follow something in their millions, century after century, if there is nothing there? Are humans really this fickle, or is it because each of them has had personal experiences or discoveries that have made them see that something very real and valid is going on? Avoid being too...

Syndrome X – What Is It And Have You Got It?

Syndrome X – What Is It And Have You Got It?

by: Kay Blackiston

Syndrome X or the X factor as it is sometimes known was first described in 1988 by Professor Gerald Reaven , an endocrinologist at California’s Stanford University after twenty years of study. Since this first identification the understanding of Syndrome X has come a long way.
Before we define Syndrome X we need to clarify the role of insulin in the body. When we eat carbohydrates – which are basically sugars, the glucose levels in our blood start to rise. In response to this,the pancreas gland produces insulin. The insulin takes the glucose and changes it into glycogen, which it stores in the muscles and liver cells for future use as energy...

Hang In There Dieters, Help Is At Hand!!

Hang In There Dieters, Help Is At Hand!!

by: Gordon Black

I was thinking about diets and such and it occurred to me that dieting is kind of like sports, but one way in which dieting differs from sports competition is that in dieting there seems to be a lack of gradualization in the preparation.
What I’m getting at is that if you want to run the 100 metres pretty fast, even competitively, you don’t just go out to the track and put in a full practice right off the bat. I mean it’s just not do-able really, is it? You’ve got to prepare and train in a systematic way which allows you to get stronger and faster throughout the training, and that can takes months if not, more realistically, years.
Well we all know that, we’ve all seen the “up close and personal” sports profiles, we all know tha...

What Women Want

What Women Want

by: Irene Segal

Women in business and the professions continue to change the face of the North American economy. Women are starting more businesses than men and are twice as likely to remain in business than their male counterparts. Career women are thriving and are making a positive impact on the economy. We now represent 55% of university graduates, and 58% of new entrepreneurs, and yet the greatest challenge women now face is having less financial security than in the past. The biggest hurdle women have to climb is being able to reach old aged without depleted resources or not having enough money to live out their lives.
Women statistically live longer than men, yet they continue to invest less and most are not adequately prepared for retirement...

What is Reiki?

What is Reiki?

by: Sam Stevens

Reiki is an ancient form of energy healing in which a properly attuned Reiki Practitioner serves as a conduit for Universal Life Force (or ReiKi). The Reiki practitioner opens them self up as a conduit for a semi-sentient energy summoned from a higher source to facilitate healing or correct a person’s aura. The Reiki Practitioner is not a healer per se – but the energy moves through them to work with the recipient’s higher will in correcting imbalances and treating situations from the core causal point rather than the effect. This is thought to have a beneficial effect on the body, mind, and spirit, emotional and in Indian systems – the chakra system.
Everything in the universe is thought to have an underlying energy that gives it form, structure, healt...

Self Tanners: Your New Best Friend?

Self Tanners: Your New Best Friend?

by: Danna Schneider

Have you ever known a sun worshipper, one of those people who can never seem to get a dark enough tan? They are always looking for that new product that will break their newest tanning plateau and deepen their color even more. Some of them are the lucky few who’s skin tans easily. They rarely burn, and after a few hours in the sun, will emerge looking like most of us would after a long Caribbean vacation. The rest of us though, are left to envy these lucky few, as we know darn well a few hours in the sun will wreak at least a week’s worth of peeling, dry, red havoc on our skin, not to mention the multitude of fine lines and wrinkles that will surely follow.
That is, until the past few years have produced the latest and greatest genera...

Money in the Bank

Money in the Bank

by: Sibylla Nash

Recently, I was on the phone with a friend of mine from California who just purchased his first home. He’s a single father and he’s in his early 30s. He was upset that his parents had never stressed the importance of owning a home or even talked to him about how to save. “Man, I’m just thinking about all of the money I wasted when I was younger,” he complained. It’s true, before we had kids, what were we spending our money on? Remember when we could shop at the store and it was all about us? Didn’t have to worry about somebody putting Dora cookies or fruit roll-ups in the shopping cart?
It’s an understatement to say that having kids changes everything, especially our financial situation...

Lingerie, Sore Knees, and Male Shoppers

by: Ed Williams

At the top of the list of things that I most don’t like to do, shopping has a hallowed spot. Granted, there are a couple of things that I would hate to do more, but my editors would have six strokes if I entered into dialogues about any of them here. Being respectful of their wishes, and also respectful of the fact that writing a column that no one would print is rather pointless, I’ll move forward and get right to the point. I was forced into a shopping experience for a computer part today, and while doing that l learned a tad more about women, which is always a good thing.
First off, about my computer – a few days ago I spilled something I shouldn’t have on my keyboard, which necessitated the purchase of another one...

Wanted: A Diva for the job of a lifetime!

Wanted: A Diva for the job of a lifetime!

by: Merci Miglino

“When I was a child, I always thought the world was mine, A stomping ground for me, full of opportunities. I always had this attitude that I was going to go out into the world and do all the things I wanted to do.” –Madonna
So, what happens to the diva or Adonis in us? What happens to the girl or boy who is convinced of their career choices, bold enough to use their imagination, and powerful enough to take risks and survive setbacks?
The world gets a hold of us, that’s what. And before we know it, it is all about fitting in, safety at all cost – making ourselves small so others wouldn’t feel uncomfortable, rolling up our boldness in favor of security, or what we think is security. In short, we make a trade off.
So what is ...
