Why Eat Garlic?

Back in my psychology class, we were talking about Prozac. My professor mentioned that Garlic is the prozac of the kitchen. Why?

Here's why.

♦ Garlic is said to reduce cancer like esophageal, stomach, and colon cancer.

♦ It may lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels in the blood, inhibit platelet stickiness (aggregation), and increase fibrinolysis-which results in a slowing of blood coagulation.

♦ Garlic is mildly antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-fungal. It has about 1% the strenth of penicillin.

♦ Garlic is known to lower blood pressure. My aunts have been taking whole garlic to alleviate high blood pressure, righ alongside copper bracelets.

♦ It has an antiseptic effect and is an excellent remedy for infectious diseases and inflammations of the stomach and intestine. The oil of garlic is absorbed into the alimentary tract and is eliminated partly through the urine.

and there are so much more about garlic here and here.

Benifits of Hobbies

USA Today wrote an article about how hobbies might help with Alzheimer's. Althought TV watching as a hobby is not recommended as it does nothing to slow down onset of Alzheimer's. It could even be a risk factor.

I like TV, I also like to read...both of these are classified as a couch activity. I am going to need a stationary bike to do my hobbies and get benifits of a sexy leg.

onset of Alzheimer's is delayed by education and by intellectually demanding professions.
Dr. Zaven Khachaturian, senior medical adviser to the Alzheimer's Association

The survey was centered on this three activities:
Passive, such as watching television, talking on the phone or listening to music.

Intellectual, such as reading, jigsaw or crossword puzzles, playing musical instruments, chess or other board games, knitting or woodwork.

Physical, such as baseball, football or other sports, bike riding, swimming, walking or skating.

The study does not show that having these activities will stop Alzheimer's, but it delays it. I think delaying this devastating disease is a good idea.

Eric Segal wrote about a Nobel Prize contender in his fiction Nobel PRIZES. This guy was a geneticist. Nothing could be more "intellectual" than doing genetic research, yet this guy got the disease anyway. It's a great story, and worth spending time reading it. Eric Segal is the same guy who can make you cry in Love Story and in Man, Woman and Child. One of the best writer there is I think.

Five Ways to Sink Your Credit Score

1. Late payments

A credit score can plumet 100 points by being late on a bill. Any bill. Getting is back up is not as easy as losing it.

2. High card balances, low FICO score

FICO or credit score ranges from a really bad score of 300 to a great score of 850. Why is this important? It's how mortage company rates you.

Also, it's recommended to only have 35% balance on your credit card. So, if you have 1000 credit limit, make sure the balance is 350 or lower.

3. Closing credit cards

Don't close the older credit card you have. It will hurt your history. You're better off closing your newest account because it doesn't have as much history as the oldies you've got.

4. Too many in-store cards

Opening mulitiple credit lines in a short amount of time can send the wrong message. Lending agencies might look at it as unstable credit risk when in fact you're only looking for a great savings of 10-20% if you open in-store credit. So slow down on those discount offered by opening a credit card.

5. Fines that add up

I think cities are catching up. Fines like parking ticket and late book fees could ruin your credit score. If they pass it to collection agency, they can really go to town on your credit score. I guess it's better to pay up or don't get fines.

On the other hand, there's seven ways you can improve your credit score.

Times Changes

I was surfing the net earlier today and found out that Philippines have their own version of Big Brother. Unfortunately for me, the first video I found is of a topless Filipina taking a milk bath. This was on live TV.

The Philippines I left 16 years ago would rate adults only shows with partial nudity. These days, they have half-naked woman taking milk-bath in prime time TV. Whew!

It's not what I would associate Philippines with, but I guess, they've finally caught on with the times. I haven't seen the US version of Big Brother, but maybe I should make time huh?

I just went to google and found out that this show was suspended. Now, that's more like it! But wait, this was in 2005!

Sunkist Commercial:

Sales Training Promotion

Someone stopped by today to present a new business oppurtunity. They mentioned words like associate, building teams, winning points and earning 250K in 5 years time. I was thinking commulative or yearly from year five?

He's a very good salesperson. I was half-sold on the product if I hadn't sworn off selling after my previous venture into selling world. I find it hard to convince anyone to buy anything because I get very conscious and uncomfortable.

On the other hand, if I had Sales Training, it would have helped. I believe that in order to ear a lot of money these days, you have to be in sales. Sales Training is a must for anyone wanting to go into their own business. I believe that whethere you planned to go into sales, the talent gained from training in this area can only be benificial.

Desperate Housewives

Have you seen that episode where Susan Meyer met the new neighbor? Oh, that was so uncomfortable. I always wonder why they give Susan all this uncomfortable lines, and my husband said that it's because she's really good at it.

Remember the naked scene when she got locked out of her house? That was nothing compared to that Sunday episode where she pretends to help the neighbor find their lost dog. All the time, the dog was in her garage, Mike, her husband came home and let the dog out by accident. Tracking paint, the dog run to his owner and ruined a Dolce suit with paint. Whew.

On the other hand, if someone I met were that snotty as that neighbor, then they can just crawl back to their cave because I won't bother. People who are choosy and picky like that are never good to have around anyway. They will always find a way to make you miserable no matter if you're trying to be nice to them. They just don't have it in them to be nice. They'll say what they want to say and call it honesty and whatever they choose to call it. The bottom line is, they trample all over you and don't even care to notice that.

Storage Space

Every one can use extra storage space. In fact, I have not meet anybody who does not have extra stuff which needs storing. I used to worry about how to arrange my stuff so it looks neat and efficint.

Verbal Abuse

Verbal abuse is a form of abusive behavior involving the use of language. Verbal abuse is different from profanity in that it can occur without profanity. In some countries, charges can be laid for verbal abuse under certain circumstances. Verbal abuse leaves no outer mark and no proof.

I think sometimes, it does leave a mark. It makes the abuse person look like they're recovering from intense illness all the time. Some are not as good an actor and they show that they don't have self-esteem anymore. They look like all the light and life are gone out of them. I've seen this twice, and they both manifest the same that way.

The problem with tailoring likes and dislikes in the quest to make the abuser happy is that it can backfire. The abuser will then accused the victim of having no original thought, and therefore make the abuser feel very righteous with their abuses.

Characteristics of Verbal Abuse

1. Verbal abuse is hurtful and usually attacks the nature and abilities of the partner. Over time, the partner may begin to believe that there is something wrong with her or her abilities.

2. Verbal abuse may be overt (through angry outbursts and name- calling) or covert (involving very subtle comments, even something that approaches brainwashing). Overt verbal abuse is usually blaming and accusatory, and consequently confusing to the partner. Covert verbal abuse, which is hidden aggression, is even more confusing to the partner.

3. Verbal abuse is manipulative and controlling. Even disparaging comments may be voiced in an extremely sincere and concerned way. But the goal is to control and manipulate.

4. Verbal abuse is insidious. The partner's self-esteem gradually diminishes, usually without her realizing it.

5. Verbal abuse is unpredictable. In fact, unpredictability is one of the most significant characteristics of verbal abuse. The partner is stunned, shocked, and thrown off balance by her mate's sarcasm, angry jab, put-down, or hurtful comment.

6. Verbal abuse is not a side issue. It is the issue in the relationship. When a couple is having an argument about a real issue, the issue can be resolved. In a verbally abusive relationship, there is no specific conflict. The issue is the abuse, and this issue is not resolved. There is no closure.

7. Verbal abuse expresses a double message. There is incongruence between the way the abuser speaks and his real feelings. May sound very sincere and honest while telling his partner what is wrong with her.

8. Verbal abuse usually escalates, increasing in intensity, frequency, and variety. The verbal abuse may begin with put-downs disguised as jokes. Later other forms might surface.
