All over the world Idle No More is making a huge impression. They are well informed and the internet is full of success stories about rallies and events that get the word out. Right now you can get thousands of pictures off the internet with people from all over, every nation – out in support. The major news is not carrying the story though. On major newscasts – you see splashy information on sports background and business statistics, but you never find information about poverty, the causes of it – or the solutions to it. We believe that there’s a solution to poverty – many in fact – that are openly being ignored by City Hall – the Provincial Leaders, and Federally. There has to be change – and that means common people have to stand up and be counted. On Jan 28th – starting at Noon – we’re going to have information events and seminars – public actions – to get people informed and involved – and it’s everyones chance to stand up for our environment, our traditions and treaties, and our futures… because in the world of poverty – there is no race or colour. Details at www.Idlenomore.ca under ‘Events’ and on our Facebook Event at www.facebook.com It’s so important that you get more informed about the problem – and that you get behind people that are forming groups throughout the valley. But more importantly – you should form small groups that make a difference by getting out and standing up for what’s right! Be a part of the change that’s happening around the world right …

Most persons with dementia (such as Alzheimer’s, vascular, other dementias) wander. Such wandering can traumatize the patient and the family. Some patients are not located for days, and some get seriously injured, even die. This video discusses ways in which families can try to understand what needs or restlessness makes patients wander, how to reduce wandering, and also how to be prepared to get the patients home safe and fast in case they do wander. While the video may be useful for any caregiving situation, it is designed keeping family caregivers in India in mind.

GIÁ TRỊ DINH DƯỠNG CỦA TRÁI CÓC
Dược sỹ Trần Việt Hưng
Trái Cóc là một trái cây nhiệt đới rất được lứa tuổi học trò ưa chuộng cùng với ổi, xoài tượng. Với giới thích nhậu thì cóc chua cùng muối ớt sẽ giúp "đưa cay" vài ba xị đế! Cóc hiện đang nghiên cứu trồng tại Florida (Hoa Kỳ) và hy vọng trong thời gian ngắn sắp tới trái Cóc sẽ được cung cấp dồi dào tại những nơi tập trung của Cộng đồng Việt Nam..
Cây cóc được xem là có nguồn gốc tại vùng Melanesia- Polynesia và sau đó được đến trồng tãi các vùng nhiệt đới của cả Cựu lẫn Tân Thế giới. Cây khá phổ biến tại Mã lai (cây trồng trong vườn), Ấn độ, Tích Lan.. Quả cóc được bán khắp các chợ Việt nam. Cây được nhập vào Philippines từ 1915, sau đó trồng tại Queensland (Úc)
Cây được đưa đến Jamaica vào 1782, và 10 năm sau Thuyền trượng Bligh đã đứ thêm vào đây một giống Cóc khác, gốc từ Hawaii. Cây cóc cũng được trồng tại Cuba, Haiti, Cộng hòa Dominican, nhiều nước Trung Mỹ, Venezuela.
Bộ Canh nông Hoa Kỳ đã nhập hạt giống Cóc từ Liberia vào năm 1909 (tuy nhiên, theo Wester thì cóc đã được trồng tại Miami (Florida) từ 4 năm trước đó). Năm 1911, một số hạt giống khác đã được gửi từ Queensland (Úc) sang Washington. Hiện nay cây cóc đang được trồng và phát triển tại Florida.
Tên khoa học và các tên gọi khác:
Spondias dulcis (hay Spondias cytherea) thuộc họ thực vật Anacardia ceae.
Các tên gọi: Tại Anh-Mỹ: Otaheite apple, Tahitian quince, Polynesian plum, Jew plum. Pháp : Pomme cythere (cây cóc= pommier de Cythère). Đức: Cytherea, Tahiti-Apfel; Tây ban Nha: Cirnela dulce; Thái Lan: makok-farang ; Cambodia: mokak.
Spondias là tên do Theophrastus đặt cho gia đình thực vật này; Dulcis có nghĩa là vị ngọt hay dịu.Tên Ambarella là tên gọi của quả bằng tiếng Bengali.
Đặc tính thực vật:
Cây cóc thuộc loại cây thân mộc, lớn, mọc nhanh, cao 8-18 m (tại Mỹ châu) thường trung bình 9-12 m, phân nhánh nhiều cành dễ gẫy. Lá kép, lẻ, to, dài 20-60 cm, mọc ở ngọn nhánh; lá mang 7-12 đôi lá chét dài 6.25-10 cm, hình thuôn tròn; mép lá có răng cưa. Vào đầu mua khô, lá cây chuyển đổi sang màu vàng tươi, rụng. Hoa mọc thành chùy to, có thể dài đến 30 cm, chùy mang ít hoa thường thòng xuống. Hoa nhỏ, màu trắng, có 10 nhị. Quả thuộc loại quả hạch, hình trứng hay hình bầu dục, dài 6-8 cm, rộng 4-5 cm, da ngoài vàng-cam; thịt màu vàng-xanh nhạt, dòn, vị chua; Quả mọc thành chùm từ 2-12 quả , thòng xuống. Hạch khá lớn hình bầu dục có nhiều gai dạng sợi dính chặt với thịt, có 5,6 ô cách nhau không đều.
Ngoài ra còn có loại Cóc chua hay Cóc rừng (Spondias pinnata) (tên Anh là Hog plum), thuộc loại tiểu mộc, rụng lá vào mùa khô. Lá kép, lẻ dài 30-40 cm, có 2-5 đôi lá chét quăn, hình bầu dục, mép lá nguyên. Hoa mọc thành chùy rộng, lớn hơn lá, có nhánh dài 10-15 cm. Hoa vàng nhạt. Quả hạch hình trứng màu vàng lớn 5 cm x 3 cm. Quả có vị chua và mùi dầu thông.

Về phương diện dinh dưỡng quả Cóc thường được đánh giá là kém hơn Xoài, tuy nhiên nếu để quả chín đúng độ thì vị khá ngon. Quả xanh (lúc còn cứng) có vị hơi chua, dòn, nhiều nước và khá thơm thoảng mùi của dứa, nhưng nếu để mềm thì thành hơi nhão và khó cắt. Quả xanh có thể chế tạo thành sauce, ngâm giấm. Nấu với chút đường rồi ép qua rây, cóc có thể so sánh với applesauce, nhưng thơm hơn. Lá non có vị hơi chua được dùng làm salad tại indonesia, lá đước hấp chín làm rau ăn với cá khô.
Tại Trinidad và Tobago (West Indies), các nhà sản xuất thực phẩm đã dùng nước ép từ quả Cóc pha trộn trong một loại yoghurts (từ sữa bò). Loại ya-ua này được đánh giá về hương vị, khẩu vị khá cao và được xem là một nguồn cung cấp rất tốt về phosphorus và chất đạm.
Thành phần hóa học:
Ngoài thành phần dinh dưỡng trên, một số bộ phận khác còn chứa:
Chất nhựa như keo trong màu vàng chứa những đường hữu cơ như D-galactose, D-xylose, L-arabinose, L-fucose, L-rhamnose ; và còn có mono-methyl-glucuronic acid.
Hạt chứa nhiều khoáng chất như Calcium, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium, Sulfur.
Pectin trong Vỏ trái Cóc:
Nghiên cứu tại ĐH Cameroun, phối hợp với Trung Tâm Nghiên cứu Nantes (Pháp) phân chất vỏ của quả cóc (thường bị vất bỏ) ghi nhận Vỏ cóc chứa 9-30% pectin, uronic acid (557-727 mg/g trọng lượng khô), đường trung tính 9125-158 mg/g. Sản lượng pectin cao nhất khi trích bằng dung dịch oxalic acid/ ammonium oxalate, đồng thời pectin lấy được có trọng khối cao, độ methyl hóa tốt nên có thể dùng trong công nghiệp thực phẩm. Pectin trích từ vỏ Cóc có thể so sánh với pectin trích từ chanh xanh (Food Chemistry Số 3, Bộ 106-2008).
Một nghiên cứu khác thực hiện tại ĐH Universidade Federal do Parana, Curitiba (Ba Tây) ghi nhận lượng Carbohydrate tổng cộng trong quả Cóc lên đến 41%. Polysaccharides chiết được bằng nước nóng cho thấy có cấu trúc loại I rhamnogalacturonan với các dây nhánh arabinogalactan.

**** Y HỌC CỔ TRUYỀN
An under-appreciated member of the Anacardiaceae, but deserving of improvement, is the ambarella, Spondias dulcis Forst. (syn. S. cytherea Sonn.). Among various colloquial names are Otaheite apple, Tahitian quince, Polynesian plum, Jew plum and golden apple. In Malaya it is called great hog plum or kedondong; in Indonesia, kedongdong; in Thailand, ma-kok-farang; in Cambodia, mokak; in Vietnam, coc, pomme cythere or Pommier de cythere. In Costa Rica, it is known as juplón; in Colombia, hobo de racimos; in Venezuela, jobo de la India, jobo de Indio, or mango jobo; in Ecuador, manzana de oro; in Brazil, caja-manga.
The tree is rapid-growing, attaining a height of 60 ft (18 m) in its homeland; generally not more than 30 or 40 ft (9-12 m) in other areas. Upright and rather rigid and symmetrical, it is a stately ornamental with deciduous, handsome, pinnate leaves, 8 to 24 in (20-60 cm) in length, composed of 9 to 25 glossy, elliptic or obovate-oblong leaflets 2 1/2 to 4 in (6.25-10 cm) long, finely toothed toward the apex. At the beginning of the dry, cool season, the leaves turn bright-yellow and fall, but the tree with its nearly smooth, light gray-brown bark and graceful, rounded branches is not unattractive during the few weeks that it remains bare. Small, inconspicuous, whitish flowers are borne in large terminal panicles. They are assorted, male, female and perfect in each cluster. Long-stalked fruits dangle in bunches of a dozen or more; oval or somewhat irregular or knobby, and 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 in (6.25-9 cm) long, with thin but tough skin, often russetted. While still green and hard, the fruits fall to the ground, a few at a time, over a period of several weeks. As they ripen, the skin and flesh turn golden-yellow. While the fruit is still firm, the flesh is crisp, juicy and subacid, and has a somewhat pineapple-like fragrance and flavor. If allowed to soften, the aroma and flavor become musky and the flesh difficult to slice because of conspicuous and tough fibers extending from the rough ridges of the 5-celled, woody core containing 1 to 5 flat seeds. Some fruits in the South Sea Islands weigh over 1 lb (0.45 kg) each.
Origin and Distribution
The ambarella is native from Melanesia through Polynesia and has been introduced into tropical areas of both the Old and New World. It is common in Malayan gardens and fairly frequent in India and Ceylon. The fruits are sold in markets in Vietnam and elsewhere in former Indochina. It first fruited in the Philippines in 1915. It is cultivated in Queensland, Australia, and grown on a small scale in Gabon and Zanzibar.
It was introduced into Jamaica in 1782 and again 10 years later by Captain Bligh, probably from Hawaii where it has been grown for many years. It is cultivated in Cuba, Haiti, the Dominican Republic, and from Puerto Rico to Trinidad; also in Central America, Venezuela, and Surinam; is rare in Brazil and other parts of tropical America. Popenoe said there were only a few trees in the Province of Guayas, Ecuador, in 1924.
The United States Department of Agriculture received seeds from Liberia in 1909, though Wester reported at that time that the tree had already been fruiting for 4 years in Miami, Florida. In 1911, additional seeds reached Washington from Queensland, Australia. A number of specimens are scattered around the tip of Florida, from Palm Beach southward, but the tree has never become common here. Some that were planted in the past have disappeared.
The tree flourishes in humid tropical and subtropical areas, being only a trifle tenderer than its close relative, the mango. It succeeds up to an altitude of 2,300 ft (700 m). In Israel, the tree does not thrive, remaining small and bearing only a few, inferior fruits.
The ambarella grows on all types of soil, including oolitic limestone in Florida, as long as they are well-drained.
The tree is easily propagated by seeds, which germinate in about 4 weeks, or by large hardwood cuttings, or air-layers. It can be grafted on its own rootstock, but Firminger says that in India it is usually grafted on the native S. pinnata Kurz (see below). Wester advised: "Use non-petioled, slender, mature, but green and smooth budwood; cut large buds with ample wood-shield, 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 in (4-4.5 cm) long; insert the buds in the stock at a point of approximately the same age and appearance as the scion."
Seedlings may fruit when only 4 years old. Ochse recommends that the young trees be given light shade. Mature trees are somewhat brittle and apt to be damaged by strong winds; therefore, sheltered locations are preferred.
In Hawaii, the fruit ripens from November to April; in Tahiti, from May to July. In Florida, a single tree provides a steady supply for a family from fall to midwinter, at a time when mangos and many other popular fruits are out of season.
Pests and Diseases
Ochse says that in Indonesia the leaves are severely attacked by the larvae of the kedongdong spring-beetle, Podontia affinis. In Costa Rica, the bark is eaten by a wasp ("Congo"), causing necrosis which leads to death. No particular insects or diseases have been reported in Florida. In Jamaica, the tree is subject to gummosis and is consequently short-lived.
The ambarella has suffered by comparison with the mango and by repetition in literature of its inferior quality. However, taken at the proper stage, while still firm, it is relished by many out-of-hand, and it yields a delicious juice for cold beverages. If the crisp sliced flesh is stewed with a little water and sugar and then strained through a wire sieve, it makes a most acceptable product, much like traditional applesauce but with a richer flavor. With the addition of cinnamon or any other spices desired, this sauce can be slowly cooked down to a thick consistency to make a preserve very similar to apple butter. Unripe fruits can be made into jelly, pickles or relishes, or used for flavoring sauces, soups and stews.
Young ambarella leaves are appealingly acid and consumed raw in southeast Asia. In Indonesia, they are steamed and eaten as a vegetable with salted fish and rice, and also used as seasoning for various dishes. They are sometimes cooked with meat to tenderize it.
Food Value Per 100 g of Edible Portion*
*According to analyses made in the Philippines and Hawaii. I
Miller, Louis and Yanazawa in Hawaii reported an ascorbic acid content of 42 mg per 100 g of raw pulp. It is a good source of iron. Unripe fruits contain 9.76% of pectin.
Wood: The wood is light-brown and buoyant and in the Society Islands has been used for canoes.
Medicinal Uses: In Cambodia, the astringent bark is used with various species of Terminalia as a remedy for diarrhea.

Question by Radhey Shyam Juneja: What is the speed of Respiration in Newborn Babies?
If the baby intakes water in the caesarian case, what should be done? What should be the normal respiration speed in the baby after been kept in the Nursury for about 48 hours?
Answer by utu-utu
I think you’re refering to baby’s respiratory rate,am I right?The normal newborn will breath about 40 to 60 breaths per minute.Anything beyond 60 breaths per minute is considered tachypnea,or fast breathing.A baby who breaths too fast may have underlying lung or airway problems like:
1)Respiratory Distress Syndrome (RDS), which is
common in premature baby whose lung is not fully mature.
2)Meconium Aspiration Syndrome(MAS),which is common
in post date baby,who has swallowed amniotic fluid tainted
with meconium,newborn’s feacal matter.
They may also have other problems like:
1)Congenital Heart Disease -like a hole in the heart
2)Hypothermia -baby is too cold
3)Transient Tachypnea of Newborn(TTN)
4)Hypoglycemia -baby’s blood sugar is too low.
and many other problems which I’ll not list out here

Question by Pink Lemonade: How does Vitamin C affect the human body?
I need the conclusion to this question and procedure of how to do this project. I am doing a science project but don`t seem to be finding any information and I really to do a more challenging Science Project. Could you please help by giving me websites or things you may know.Thanks so much!!XxX
Answer by Dot
One of the role of vitamin C is to play a role in making the protein, collagen. Collagen is found in various places such as the connective tissue (helps hold joints together for example). It is also found in bones, teeth, tendons and blood vessels. It is important for wound healing.
Vitamin C is also known to boost the immune system. It has been studiesd for the prevention of colds but research shows that it helps reduce the severity of symptoms and may shorten the length of a cold by a day or so.
Vitiman C works in the body as an antioxidant. It is known to protect our bodies from certain cancers and it helps us absorb iron.
It is very important to our health and survival. We cannot live without it. This is why it is an essential nutrient.

Question by abc_123: Does someone who’s vaccinated against the flu have more chance of getting a common cold?
I was just wondering if someone who is vaccinated against the seasonal flu AND against the H1N1 virus. Would this person, if they caught a common cold or a little winter virus, have stronger symptoms and take longer to recover than someone who didn’t get any vaccinations this year.
I was thinking that it might be possible since the body is creating anticorps against the 2 flus and doesn’t produce AS MUCH for the other smaller viruses?
Answer by TweetyBird
“Does someone who’s vaccinated against the flu have more chance of getting a common cold?” — Having been vaccinated against seasonal flu and novel H1N1 flu won’t increase or decrease your chances of contracting a cold. Would my having been vaccinated against measles affect my chances either way of getting chicken pox?
“Would this person, if they caught a common cold or a little winter virus, have stronger symptoms and take longer to recover than someone who didn’t get any vaccinations this year.” — The answer is no. Why would flu vaccinations have this effect? What’s your rationale for considering this a possibility? Vaccinations don’t impair the body’s ability to fight other microorganisms but a person’s overall health and the state of their immune system may.
“I was thinking that it might be possible since the body is creating anticorps against the 2 flus and doesn’t produce AS MUCH for the other smaller viruses?” — What makes you think that other viruses are smaller than flu viruses? Adenoviruses, which are one virus that cause colds, are larger then flu viruses. It’s not “anticorps”, it’s antibodies. It take only about two weeks for the body to produce sufficient antibodies to confer immunity and the immune system is quite capable of producing more than one type of antibody at one time. The body will produce as many as needed.
“…since the body is creating anticorps against the 2 flus…” — It’s not only two flus . The seasonal flu vaccine is a combination vaccine that protects against seasonal H3N2, type B and seasonal H1N1. The novel H1N1 vaccine protects against (of course) novel H1N1 flu. That’s 4 flus.

A heap of wasps having a feed on my chicken. The European Wasp, Vespula germanica, was first recorded on the Australian mainland in 1977, where it soon became well established. In South Australia, the European wasp distribution appears to be throughout the hills surrounding Adelaide, and Adelaide itself. Despite early reports labeling it as a ‘Killer Wasp’, no human deaths have been recorded in Australia. The European wasp is a public nuisance and a horticultural pest. Unlike a bee, that can only sting once, the European wasp can sting repeatedly. FINDING THE NEST In order for the nest to be destroyed YOU need to LOCATE the nest. To find the nest you need to establish the direction the wasps are flying. To do this, place a good food source (ie meat or petfood) in a visible location. Once the wasp has collected the food, it will fly IN A DIRECT LINE TO THE NEST. A wasp may be scavenging for food up to 500m from the nest. Keep relocating the food sources in the direction of the nest. You may need to work with your Neighbours. Nests are located where shelter is available. Common locations for nests include retaining walls, tree hollows and wall cavities Nests are often underground, and will be evident by a stream of wasps entering and leaving a hole in the ground. The nest is made of grey paper mache material. Nests constructed of mud are NOT European wasps nests. COUNCIL WILL DESTROY EUROPEAN WASP NESTS AFTER POSITIVELY INDENTIFYING THEM.

PLEASE NOTE: YOU WILL NEED HEADPHONES TO HEAR ME! SORRY. Briefly discussing Michael’s charity work including 1 that is especially close to my heart… UPDATE: I’M HOME! (I came home on 3/30.) Also: Briefly discussing new news on the case. Finally, when certain patients have very small or difficult veins in their arms and hands, they are referred to as a “hard stick”. Being a “hard stick” is quite common in Sickle Cell & Lupus patients many of which are African-American. “Hard Sticks” may have to get IV’s placed in unusual or areas, like legs, feet, and necks. They may even the IVs placed in “exotic” areas (meaning: the groin, since it is the location of the “femoral vein”– the largest vein in the human body– eek!). As you can see in this video, my IV was placed in my neck in the “jugular vein” (or “the vampire’s kiss). ONLY DOCTORS ARE ALLOWED TO PLACE AN IV IN ANY OF THESE UNUSUAL AREAS! It has been said that when Michael got his last dose of propofal it was administered into the vein in his calf in his leg. (If I’m wrong PLEASE let me know!) Therefore, Michael had small/difficult veins in his arms, just like me. As a result, we’re both hard sticks, and must endure the pain (& sometimes even the embarrassment) of having a small cold piece of surgical steel invade certain areas of our delicate bodies out of medical necessity or just plain old medicinal relief. Woe on us.

Lá thường xanh (đôi khi là sớm rụng trong các khu vực lạnh hơn), dài 50-100 cm, là loại lá lông chim phức đôi hay ba, với các lá chét dài khoảng 4-11 cm và rộng 1,5-3 cm. Các lá non về mùa xuân có màu hồng nhạt hay đỏ trước khi chuyển thành màu xanh lục; các lá già chuyển màu thành đỏ hay tía trước khi rụng. Hoa màu trắng, mọc vào đầu mùa hè thành cụm hình nón cao trên tán lá. Quả là loại quả mọng màu đỏ tươi, đường kính 5-10 mm, chín vào cuối mùa thu và thường là tồn tại suốt cả mùa đông.
Nó được trồng khá rộng rãi trong vườn dưới vai trò của một loại cây cảnh; trên 60 giống đã được đặt tên tại Nhật Bản, là khu vực mà loài này rất phổ biến. Nó đã được đưa vào Bắc Mỹ và đã thích nghi với môi trường sinh sống mới tại khu vực miền đông
Nandina domestica ( /nænˈdiːnə dəˈmɛstɨkə/ nan-dee-nuh) commonly known as nandina, heavenly bamboo or sacred bamboo, is a suckering shrub in the Barberry family, Berberidaceae. It is a monotypic genus, with this species as its only member. It is native to eastern Asia from the Himalaya east to Japan.
Despite the common name, it is not a bamboo at all. It is an erect shrub growing to 2 m tall (7′-8′ in the Pacific Northwest), with numerous, usually unbranched stems growing from the roots. The glossy leaves are evergreen (sometimes deciduous in colder areas), 50–100 cm long, bi- to tri-pinnately compound, with the individual leaflets 4–11 cm long and 1.5–3 cm broad. The young leaves in spring are brightly coloured pink to red before turning green; old leaves turn red or purple again before falling. The flowers are white, borne in early summer in conical clusters held well above the foliage. The fruit is a bright red berry 5–10 mm diameter, ripening in late autumn and often persisting through the winter.
All parts of the plant are poisonous, containing hydrocyanic acid, and could potentially be fatal if ingested. The plant is placed in Toxicity Category 4, the category "generally considered non-toxic to humans," however, the berries are considered toxic to cats and grazing animals.  The berries also contain alkaloids such as nantenine, which is used in scientific research as an antidote to MDMA. Birds are not affected by these toxins and will disperse the seeds through their droppings.
Status as an invasive species
Nandina is considered invasive in North Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia, and Florida. It has been placed on the Florida Exotic Pest Plant Council’s invasive list as a Category I species, the highest listing. It’s been observed in the wild throughout Florida in Gadsden, Leon, Jackson, Alachua, and Citrus counties, in conservation areas, woodlands, and floodplains. In general, the purchase or continued cultivation of these plants in locations with similar climates to the Southeastern US is highly discouraged, unless they are a legally established non-fertile variety.
Garden history and cultivation
N. domestica, grown in Chinese and Japanese gardens for centuries, was brought to Western gardens by William Kerr, who sent it to London in his first consignment from Canton, in 1804. The English, unsure of its hardiness, kept it in greenhouses at first. The scientific name given it by Carl Peter Thunberg is a Latinized version of a Japanese name for the plant, nan-ten. Nandina is widely grown in gardens as an ornamental plant; over 65 cultivars have been named in Japan, where the species is particularly popular and a national Nandina society exists. In Shanghai berried sprays of Nandina are sold in the streets at the New Year, for the decoration of house altars and temples.
Nandina does not berry profusely in Great Britain, but it can be grown in USDA hardiness zones 4–10. Nandina can take heat and cold, from 110 °F/43 °C to 10 °F/-12 °C. A true low-care plant, nandina needs no pruning ever, unless it is to harvest some leaves for use in a flower arrangement or berries for a holiday centerpiece. The berries can also be left on the plants for birds to harvest in late winter. Spent berry stalks can easily be snapped off by hand in spring. Due to the naturally occurring phytochemicals (see above) this plant is commonly used in rabbit, deer, and javelina resistant landscape plantings.

Nandina is listed as a Class I invasive species by the Florida Exotic Pest Plant Council which means that it is "actively disrupting plant communities". Before planting this (or any non-native plant) check locally to make sure that it is not an invasive pest in your area.
Question by Kiki: What is the recipe for cold angel hair pasta with jalapeno, mint, and cherry tomatoes?
I know those are the main ingredients but can’t find the recipe I want. It’s a nice summer dish, both spicy and cool, due to the jalapenos and the mint and serving it cold. I don’t know if there was anything else in it, some light dressing like olive oil or something, to keep it from being dry. The whole pasta is spicy and minty.
Does anyone know a recipe for this?
Answer by KDL
It sounds like it may be a greek style salad. This one is good and I see no reason why you cannot substitute angel hair pasta for the orzo.
U.S. Metric Conversion chart
* 2 cup(s) orzo pasta
* 1 tablespoon(s) olive oil

Introduction to the Old Testament (Hebrew Bible) (RLST 145) with Christine Hayes This lecture traces the account of the Exodus (and the origin of the Passover festival as a historicization of older nature festivals) and Israel’s liberation from bondage under Pharaoh. The story reaches its climax with the covenant concluded between God and Israel through Moses at Sinai. Drawing heavily on the work of Jon Levenson, the lecture examines Ancient Near Eastern parallels to the Sinaitic covenant and describes the divine-human relationship (an intersection of law and love) that the covenant seeks to express. 00:00 – Chapter 1.

Question by the_annoying_creature: Sometimes I feel a pain that cuts through me like an arrow?
Sometimes I feel a pain that cuts through me like an arrow and then just goes away. it’s not in any particilar body part, it can occur anywhere (ex: my back, my heart, my arm or even leg) What does it mean? And why does it occur?
Answer by Billie77
there could be many different reasons why you experience this pain. It’s possible that you have a condition called Fibromyalgia.
Here is a brief list of common symptoms of this disease:
Chronic pain throughout the body
Burning, numbness and tingling
Tenderness when pressure is placed on or around the neck, elbows, hips, thighs and knees.
Chronic fatigue or exhaustion
Jaw Pain (TMJ)
Tension or Migraine Headaches
High sensitivity to foods and medications (allergic type reaction).
Minimal tolerance to heat and cold
High sensitivity to bright lights and sounds
Because symptoms develop gradually, this disease is often misdiagnosed. It is often diagnosed as a repetitive strain injury; sleep disorder condition, irritable bowel syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis or any other type of medical problem. Based on the American College of Rheumatology a person is diagnosed with Fibromylagia when he or she suffers pain throughout the body for at least three months and has 11 out of 18 tender points present.
If this sounds like what you’re having see a doctor of rheumatology.

Question by Dimitri: What do you think of these fairies for my story?
Fairies are divided into two groups; the Fair Folk, and the Hidden People.
Fairies come in all shapes and sizes; human-sized, animal-like, skinny or fat, short or tall, colored eyes or no eyes, claws or wings, reptilian scales or fish scales, cold or hot touch, sharp teeth or none, horned or long-eared. But the things that they all have in common are dark-colored hair and bright green or blue eyes. They are the people of the night.
The Fair Folk lean towards benevolence, while the Hidden People are seen as malicious and malevolent. But for some odd reason, humans often forget about this about fairies.
They are morally grey and capricious spirits; the line between good and evil is blurred to them. They have their differences but they love to revel and haunt with each other in the dark night, especially in autumn. They would steal household things, especially alcohol, wreak havoc and play tricks on unsuspecting victims, seducing young virgins and playing with their hearts, causing nightmares on poor sleepers, hosting and participating in wild parties and games, they even kidnap pets and children. Fairies are proud creatures, yet they are bound by certain rules; iron, smoke and bells avert them, they can not tell lies (but they can say half-truths and fabrications), and any mortal who slaps a fairy child will be punished severely. They hate being spied upon, but they will reveal themselves as a form of joke to scare mortals off, but they cannot physically harm them.

The Camelidae family consists of a small family of mammalian animals. There are two members of Old World camels living in Africa and Asia–Arabian and the Bactrian, and four members of the New World camels living in South America–the llamas, vicunas, alpacas and guanacos. They are all very well adapted to their respective environments: the camels in harsh deserts of Africa and Asia; and their South American cousins inhabit the high altiplano and bush area of South America. Most of these species have been integrated into, and play very important roles in lives of the indigenous people. They have been traditionally used for transport of people and things, hides and fibers for clothing and other textile articles, and in many cases they supply meat and milk products, etc. The South American species are being raised in non-native countries for a variety of reasons: as pack animals, pets, guard animals for sheep ranges, and for fiber. Their biology, reproduction, disease susceptibility, behavior, and nutrition have not been studied to any great extent until fairly recently. Because there are now fairly high populations of these animals in the United States and some other temperate countries, there has been more interest and need to understand their needs, in order to provide adequate housing, feed and veterinary care as they are moved from their native environments to new climates, etc. It is with these needs in mind, that this information resource has been compiled.
Oddly enough, the Camelidae evolved in North America. The early ancestors migrated from North America by a crossing the Alaskan land bridge to Asia and the Panama land connection to South America. They eventually became extinct in North America, but began to thrive in their new lands. At one time camels ranged from Asia to Eastern Europe. After crossing into Africa, they were found across the entire northern region and as far south as northern Tanzania. The South American members of the family found their niche in the cool, dry mountain areas of that continent.
Each of the South American camelids has unique qualities, value and can be used as a source of a wide range of services and products useful to humans. Therefore, a short description and use of each of these interesting and quite tractable animals follows. The animals are medium sized, with the males being somewhat larger than the females. Their heads have a straight profile. They have no horns or antlers. They have large eyes and thick lashes. The ears are long and pointed. One obvious feature that is different from camels is the lack of a hump as their backs are straight. Their foot pads are proportionately smaller than a camel’s because they need to move securely on rocky trails and gravel mountain slopes. Since they live in cold, dry places, they have very dense, wooly coats. They may kick or spit if threatened.
As mentioned above, there are probably just basically two species. All four types have been found to breed in captivity, so genetic relationships are uncertain. The llamoid or camelid is a common name for this group.
Llamas* (Lama glama)
Llamas are medium sized animals and can weigh up to 300 pounds. Males are somewhat larger than the females. They are used for fiber and as unusual pack animals in many countries around the world. Currently, they are being used for hauling carts and driving, pet therapy with elderly and disabled persons and as guard animals in large free-range sheep operations. They are environmentally sensitive and intelligent. They are also extremely gentle and used as pet therapy because of their calming effect. They seldom bite or butt and they have no horns, hooves, or claws to do injury. They are alert, curious, adaptable, and predictable with docile, disarming temperaments. They are adapted to high altitudes because their hemoglobin, a constituent of red blood cells, can absorb more oxygen than that of other mammals. Their red blood cells also have a longer life span than other mammals, an average of 235 days versus 100 days for humans.
Llamas were also used by the ancient Inca civilization in South America. Archeological evidence indicates that they have been domesticated from the wild guanaco approximately 5,000 years ago. Many llamas and alpacas were sacrificed to the gods every year by the Incan culture. The meat would then be distributed to the crowds. Llamas were also an integral part of the Inca’s workforce. As pack animals they contributed vastly to the building of their irrigation systems, roads, and temples. They were also used to carry loads in the Inca’s mines.
Llamas are still used today by the indigenous peoples of South America for packing and transporting goods, fibers, and for meat. Mostly the males are used as pack animal. They usually carry up to fifty pound loads. Stallions can carry up to 110-176 pounds for about 19 miles (a day’s march for a llama). Male pack animals are not sheared. Their heavy wool coat acts as a saddle blanket by cushioning their loads. It has been suggested that the llamas were selectively bred as pack animals leading to a larger stronger animals than their wild parent. The females are sheared, but llama wool is inferior to the alpacas and is often used to make rope. (The alpaca has probably been selected and breed for wool and not as a pack animal.) Llamas only allow themselves to be loaded when they are part of a group. Llamas provide meat, wool, hides for sandals, and fat for candles. Their dung can be dried and used for fuel. South American herders use most parts of a llama’s carcass.

Guy I’ve been seeing breaks up with me and I am deeply heartbroken. How can I move past this quickly?
Question by : Guy I’ve been seeing breaks up with me and I am deeply heartbroken. How can I move past this quickly?
I’ve been seeing this guy for 4 months to be exact. I know 4 months may sound short to other people, but I felt the connection was so different. I had my share of painful relationships and I thought this would be different. However, this past Sunday, he said he didn’t think this was going to work out. He told me this through 6 long texts how this wasn’t going to work out. He started off in a cold way then concluded with saying “I really enjoyed being with you..You made me laugh and happy..” Then he said “take care friend~”
I did not reply back to those texts on Sunday night. I was just numb. It hit me hard the next day. I ended up sending him a text on Monday saying “my heart hurts..” but I didn’t get a reply.
I have this blog that I write on and he used to read it. I know he still checks it after he broke up with me because I have this tracker on it. I didn’t write about him, and when I see that he has checked my blog, I get this little emotional “high” you can call it that maybe he still cares and when he hasnt checked it like today, I get all sad again. I know I have to move on, but it’s quite hard you know? I know he’s perfectly fine, probably with another girl or his ex-gf and I’m here crying. I tried to do everything to keep myself busy but I’m still heartbroken and cannot stop crying. Does he check my blog for the hell of it? What do I do?
Answer by jenni72x
He is checking your blog because he is a stupid male. Even though he broke up with you he is still curious as to what you are up to. It is a ego thing for men. Think nothing more about it. You need to throw yourself into your friends as much as possible and get out of the house. Sitting around is the worst thing to do. Take up a new hobby and dive into it. Mostly you really need your friends right now.
