How it feels to have a stroke

One morning, a blood vessel in Jill Bolte Taylor 's brain exploded. As a brain scientist, she realized she had a ringside seat to her own stroke . She watched as her brain functions shut down one by one: motion, speech, memory, self-awareness ... Amazed to find herself alive, Taylor spent eight years recovering her ability to think, walk and talk. She has become a spokesperson for stroke recovery and for the possibility of coming back from brain injury stronger than before. In her case, although the stroke damaged the left side of her brain, her recovery unleashed a torrent of creative energy from her right. From her home base in Indiana, she now travels the country on behalf of the Harvard Brain Bank as the "Singin' Scientist." Thanks for Mun2 to share this ;p Appreciate

Health Tips: Getting your nap on

NAP is not just for toddlers. Napping makes great sense for adults, whether or not it puts you in touch with your inner child. When adults napped between 2 and 4 p.m. , one recent study showed, they performed better on tests and had no problems falling asleep at night. NASA found that military pilots and astronauts who took a 40-minute nap improved alertness by 100 percent and performance by 34 percent, and recent Harvard University research also revealed that college students who napped between tasks performed better than those who stayed awake. How does napping work its brain magic? "It may protect brain circuits from overuse until those neurons can consolidate what's been learned about a procedure," says Robert Stickgold, Ph.D., coauthor of the Harvard study. Unless you know the correct way to conduct a daytime doze, however, you could snooze and lose. "Napping can steal the drive for nighttime sleep, so you need to be cautious," says David Neubauer, M.D.

Gatsby Moving Rubber

I know Gatsby new "Moving Rubber" has been existed for a long time. And the variety do makes me confused. BUT lastly I choose to buy the Pink one. When I first using it, I figured out it was so hard to be washed off. And I wonder if there is any good way to wash off these "rubber" without pushing too much stress on your scalp. Anyway, for those who using Gatsby moving rubber must spread the "rubber" on the tips of your hair and NOT scalp . This is always an important thing to be noticed ! Anyhow, looking forward for the clues of using Gatsby Moving Rubber ;p

Health warning signs -By Gabrielle Fagan

Two top diet doctors share their head-to-toe guide to warning signs. Our body is constantly talking to us - yet many of us ignore its messages and suffer unnecessary illness as a result. Small symptoms like bloodshot eyes, dry skin, thinning hair or even weak, brittle nails can be early warnings that our system is under stress or we're experiencing a deficiency that could eventually damage our general health and wellbeing. Dr Wendy Denning and nutritionist Vicki Edgson, authors of The Diet Doctors Inside And Out, both believe that learning to read the body's signs paves the way not just to better health but to a better life ."In general, people are ignoring the early warning signs that their body sends out often because they don't understand what they mean," Denning says. "Basically our body sends out subtle early signs when things are not quite right. If nothing is done these increase to stronger signals and if you neglect those you may be hit by a big warn

My turn

Today went to KTAR for a swim. HUGE number of people were crowding the swimming pool. I think this is due to new semester for all KTAR students and a very nice weather (after rain) to swim. Fortunately the swimming pool is big enough to suit all of us and they all know the "traffic" rules in the swimming pool.
