Please enter your email address here LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Water quenches your thirst and cools you down on a hot day, but it also does it lot more for your body and overall health. Whether you’re sweating, breathing, or digesting, your body is constantly losing water. With advice from the fitness experts at Fit Body Boot Camp, one of the fastest growing fitness sensations in the country, you can learn why it’s important to always replenish and stay hydrated.1. Keep Body Fluids BalancedWater makes of 60% of your bodily fluids, which all have important jobs like digesting food, circulating oxygen, and regulating body temperature. Keeping your body hydrated ensures these fluids can do their job without any trouble.2. Eliminates Toxins and WasteWater keeps things moving through your system, working to flush waste products and toxins out of your cells.3. Energizes Your MusclesWhen your muscle cells lack fluid, they begin to shrivel and aren’t able to perform at their potential. Drink water throughout the day, before exercising, during a long workout, and after your workout to maintain adequate fluid levels in your muscles.4. Aids in Weight LossWater isn’t a magic weight loss pill, but it is part of the equation. Consuming water is zero calories, fills your stomach so you don’t feel as hungry, and high-water content foods, like fruits and vegetables, are healthier for you.5. Improves Your ComplexionYour skin contains water, and when it is parched it is more likely to develop wrinkles and fine lines. Sweating also rids toxins from your skin, and if you’re not hydrated the toxins and dirt build up within your skin.Fit Body Boot Camp is the world’s most popular and fastest growing indoor fitness boot camp franchise with more than 300 locations across North America, Europe and Australia. The unique fitness brand combines individualized training from certified personal trainers, specially created Afterburn workouts, and personalized nutritional guidance to help clients lose weight, gain muscle, and burn excess body fat.

Architects Atelier Ryo Abe Works shared with us this project that consists on a house for a young couple with two small children. According to the architects, the clients requested a lot of shelf space to display their many collectables. More information and photos after the break. Save this picture!Courtesy of Atelier Ryo Abe WorksThe entrance to the site faces a big park, but is narrow with a long approach, and is surrounded by neighboring houses. It is difficult to maintain privacy, and there is little scenery to enjoy. This project began by determining the maximum exterior form of the structure. Next, seven “floors” were inserted into the space, each being dedicated to a specific function such as sleeping, studying, cooking, bathing, dining, and storage. Each floor has its own character, and fits into the structure with its own uniquely angled volume. Some of the floors have a very low ceiling (1.2m) while others are very high. The remaining space in the house, not occupied by the floors, became the living hall. This is the largest volume in the building with high ceiling, and was envisioned to cultivate a feeling of being outside, looking into the interior spaces of the floors. With the varying floor levels, and composition of the rooms, the family has skewed viewing levels from their neighbors, helping to foster a feeling of privacy. Save this picture!Courtesy of Atelier Ryo Abe WorksTo optimize sunlight coming into the house on the small, crowded lot, the four corners of the structure were cut, and made into large windows, allowing direct natural light to flow through the living space at all times of the day. At nighttime the largest of the floors, the study box, becomes alive from within with the play of shadows of the people moving against the surrounding display shelves. All furniture pieces, and lamps were designed originally for this house.Project gallerySee allShow lessThomas Phifer and PartnersArticlesIn Progress: Sunset Park Materials Recycling Facility / Selldorf ArchitectsArticles Share Projects ArchDaily Japan CopyHouses•Japanlast_img read more

The house is 9 Star energy rated, and uses the warmth of the sun, storing it in the insulated floor and walls, for gradual release throughout the day and night.

Cold Weather Slows Avian Flu Cleanup

Posted On Jun 14 2021 by

first_img SHARE SHARE By Gary Truitt – Jan 19, 2016 Cold Weather Slows Avian Flu Cleanup Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Cold Weather Slows Avian Flu Cleanup Cold Weather Slows Avian Flu CleanupCarol ComerThe avian flu containment area in Dubois county was expanded on Tuesday and more depopulation took place as a precaution to stop the spread of the infection. Indiana State Veterinarian Dr. Bret Marsh announced the addition of an extra 10-kilomenter “surveillance zone” beyond the 10-km control area as a precaution. In addition, there are 155,000 egg-laying chickens that are NOT infected, but are being depopulated, again as a precaution.Indiana Department of Environmental Management Commissioner Carol Comer said the disposal of the hundreds of thousands of birds is a logistical challenge, “The infected birds are being composted on the farm. They will remain in the ground for at least 30 days, after which they can be used as compost material because the virus is dead.” She told HAT that non-infected birds are being placed in landfills, “Birds that were not infected, but were depopulated as a precaution, can be moved off the farm and be placed in landfills.”The below freezing temperatures this week have slowed the clean up process. Water is usually used to drown the birds; but with wind chills in the single digits, it has been freezing. USDA officials have turned to carbon dioxide or other methods, but the process has been slow according to BOAH spokesperson Denise Derrer.Comer said state and federal officials are working almost around the clock to clean up and contain the situation. No new cases of infection have been discovered in the past 24 hours. Currently, depopulation has been completed at six of the 10 turkey flocks. Work continues on the remaining four, as well as the newly added layer facility.The Indiana State Department of Health is working with the Dubois County Health Department to monitor the health of workers who have had contact with infected birds to ensure they are healthy and verify that the H7N8 virus has not transmitted to people.

She added she is grateful that everyone showed great commitment and great support in the fight against the Alzheimer’s disease.“I’m amazed that this many people and the long line of volunteers that we have at 6 o’clock this morning,” Hocker said.One volunteer, Chris Lokey, was recognized as the top individual fundraiser at the event and was awarded the title of honorary chair. Lokey raised more than $8,000 for the walk.He said he was inspired to raise the money on behalf of his wife Judith Jaunters and because he felt the need to give back to the Alzheimer’s Association.“Coming to the Alzheimer’s Association gave us that education and support that we needed to learn how to take care of Judith,” Chris said. “We went to their support group. They were valuable to us.”The walk was also personal for Preeya Brookins, whose mother and uncle were both diagnosed with  Alzheimer’s.“We feel like the genes may be genetic in the family,” Brookins said. “All of us are affected.”Brookins said her whole family wanted to participate in the walk, despite the weather, because it provides hope and she has faith there is a cure somewhere that someone has not found.“The whole family is affected and it’s very sad disease.” Brookins said “To me, being out in this rain has not affected me one bit. I don’t care about getting wet or being sick because I know by the end of the day I’m still not in their situation.” ReddIt Tuyen Hoang is originally from Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

Kilkenny, undoubtedly a very attractive small city, certainly has a lot to offer the visitor in terms of history, culture and festival activity but while comparisons are odious, Limerick city, gateway to the Mid West, is in itself, a city that is steeped in colourful and dramatic history, also has a rich backdrop of indigenous industry and a river and its lore that has assumed resurrected status as one of the most significant features in the masterplan currently in progress for a radical redevelopment of the city centre.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Meantime, however, Limerick could be energising itself to draw in more visitors. And a straightforward way of doing so is, according to the Labour city councillor, Joe Leddin, by developing and launching a successful programme of attractive events that are available throughout the year.This is not a radical, way-out idea – it makes sound sense to provide as many feasible and attractive reasons to visit and remain in a city as is possible.And let’s face it – the number of live entertainment events and performances in Limerick city has declined hugely. We need a city centre cinema, a concert venue and dedicated public areas of the city, including the river banks and parks where band recitals, jazz sessions, musicians and street entertainers can  attract the passers-by.But we also need high profile performance events that offer big time names and world-class performers and to pave the way, a festival that brings originality, colour, excitement and VISITORS.

Geomagnetic modification of the mid-latitude ionosphere: Toward a strategy for the improved forecasting of ƒ0F2

Posted On May 9 2021 by

first_imgThe reduction of maximum usable frequency (MUF) during a geomagnetic storm represents a serious hindrance to the efficient operation of HF transmission links. This paper outlines a new approach to the modeling and forecasting of ƒ0F2 at quiet and disturbed times. Statistical analyses of ionosonde data from the Argentine Islands (65°S) have been used to define patterns for the main phase effects of mid‐latitude ionospheric storms. Extended to a number of stations, these could be incorporated into algorithms to permit the forecasting of MUF for a few hours ahead and enhance the frequency management of shortwave radio communication. Data from a complete solar cycle, 1971–1981, are used to determine the errors in the forecasts and to demonstrate that a useful advantage can be attained by this method. The root‐mean‐square error in ƒ0F2 for 90,175 samples is 15.6%, which compares favorably with those obtained using forecasts based upon quiet time values (20.4%) or the previous day’s measurements (18%). Studies of error distribution with respect to local time, season, and phase of the solar cycle highlight limitations in the technique but also indicate avenues to further improvement.last_img read more
