Not Washing Hands After Clean Dirt Cat, Beware of Alzheimer’s

In certain cases, pets are cute and adorable sometimes carries its own risks for the owner. As with any cats.

A recent study revealed that parasites are commonly found in cat feces can trigger suspected dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.

Parasites in question is Toxoplasma gondii. Previously, these parasites are advised to be avoided by pregnant women or those trying to have children because it can lead to potential disruption of the fetus.

The problem, cat owners sometimes do not wash their hands after handling pets or cleaning its cage. This is when the parasite enters the body them and ‘crawl’ to the brain.

Because these researchers speculate that these parasites can lead to a number of diseases of the brain, including Alzheimer’s, schizophrenia or mood disorders. The hypothesis they say, these parasites can allegedly change the chemical makeup in the human brain, thus making it vulnerable to disease.
Researchers trying out their theory in mice. One group of mice infected with these parasites and other groups of mice brain are modified to resemble a brain condition when attacked by Alzheimer’s disease.

After being tested, both showing the same symptoms, including an interruption in their learning ability and memory. Indications are quite prominent lies in changing the chemical makeup of the brain in mice infected with T gondii.

Even the presence of the parasite is proven to increase the likelihood of the mice to develop Alzheimer’s. Similarly, as reported by the Daily Mail.

Editor of the Journal of Parasitology, where this study was published, Michael Sukhdeo claimed to agree with the findings of researchers Lorestan University of Medical Sciences in Iran it.

According to him, T gondii has a great opportunity to trigger Alzheimer’s because these parasites are fond of staying in the brain. “If it is proven in humans, these parasites must be absolutely avoided to minimize risk to the fetus or an adult,” the message.
More recently, Toxoplasma gondii has also been associated by researchers from the University Juarez in Mexico with symptoms of Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD), an extreme version of Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS). According to researchers, women with PMDD experience a greater chance for infection of the parasite.

This is because toxo triggers the release of neurotransmitters in the brain that affect mood or the mood.

How To Entertain Your Ferret

Your ferret is highly active, and wants to interact with you. He won’t be interested in watching television or playing video games, and he of course cannot be let out into the backyard to burn off his energy. He needs you to provide some measure of entertainment for him.

You will always know when your ferret is ready to play. He will do everything but say the words! He will most likely get in front of you, bounce a bit, run back and forth, and possibly even ‘dance’ a bit. He may even tug on your pants leg to get your attention. There won’t be any doubt in your mind that he wants to play, and he has selected you as his playmate.

Ferrets like games that involve chasing, hiding and seeking, and tug-of-war the best. Naturally, there are many variations of these games that you can play with your ferret, and it won’t take long before you know which ones he enjoys the most. He will chatter, dance, and be very interested in the games that he loves.

Entertaining a ferret is not expensive. He doesn’t need fancy toys. He likes the simple things in life. An old dishtowel for tug-of-war, a ball, a paper sack with crumpled up newspaper or wrapping paper inside – these are the things that bring joy to your ferrets life.

Get down on your hands and knees and chase him – allow him to chase you back, but stay on your hands and knees. Make sure that you have lots of energy! Ferrets are a cuddly ball full of energy – and he will be able to play the game a great deal longer than you will.

Ferrets love companions. Two ferrets are always happier than just one, because they have each other for constant entertainment. A dog or cat also makes a good playmate for your ferret.

You should also purchase some toys that will allow your ferret to entertain himself when you can’t play. Toys that hang from strings are very interesting to ferrets. They don’t just want to ‘bat’ the toys like cats do – they want to figure out how to get it to their nest, and will spend hours trying to figure that out.

Your ferret may want to nip. This is a natural part of his play – until he understands that you do not want him to nip you. Do not hit your ferret. Instead, tap him on the nose and sternly say ‘no.’ Once you’ve done this, do not remain mad at the ferret. Go back to playing with him, and when he nips you again, tap him on the nose again and say ‘no.’ Make sure that you are consistent with this, and it won’t take long for your ferret to associate nipping with you being angry at him. He doesn’t want you to be angry – he wants to please you.

You can purchase Ferretone in just about any pet store, or through online pet stores. This substance can be applied to anything that you want the ferret to be interested in. Ferretone is like cat nip – but for ferrets.

Avoiding Edge Curling On A Roll Up Banner Stand

Roller banners are portable display systems that are used everyday in a wide variety of environments, including shopping centres, retail outlets and of course at exhibitions and trade shows. These portable displays are incredibly popular thanks to the fact that they are lightweight, easy to assemble and very portable.
Banner stands are usually supplied by large format print companies or exhibition and display related businesses who purchase the base unit that is essentially a spring-loaded mechanism and attach a custom printed banner, sometimes referred to as a ‘graphic’.
With the popularity of these banner stand displays at an all-time high, there are a wide variety of companies who can provide your business with a banner stand and it is therefore important that you select a company who can provide a good quality display, guaranteed to look professional and advertise your product or service in the best possible way.
The base unit for a banner stand is nothing more than a carrier for the message that you are displaying and the purpose of this article is to describe the various ways that these graphics can be produced and to illustrate the associated benefits.
There are a wide variety of materials that can be employed for a typical roller banner stand graphic and these include polyester based films, polypropylene based films and PVC. One of the biggest problems with many roller banner stand graphics is known as ‘edge curl’. Quite simply, this is the effect caused whereby the long edges of the print either curl inwards or outwards, thus negatively impacting on the geometric correctness of the print. Edge curl can vary from a minimal variance of between 10 and 20mm, through to severe edge curl which can obscure up to 25% of the overall printed image in some extreme cases. Almost universally, edge curl is caused by the thermal properties of the material being influenced by changes in temperature and this effect is accentuated where the print is is protected with a laminated film.
Generally speaking, polyester is the best choice for a roller banner stand graphic because the base material is very dimensionally stable and does not vary according to external temperature. It is worth noting that should a protective laminate film be used to over the surface of the polyester film, then the laminate should have a polyester composition rather than PVC which will otherwise have different thermal properties and could lead to edge-curl.
With the introduction of new print technology such as UV printing, many providers of roller banner graphics are able to supply prints onto low cost materials such as PVC at a lower cost of the polyester counterparts. An added benefit of a UV print process onto a PVC base material is that the ink possesses both UV stability and water-fastness, thus a protective lamination is not required. For these reasons an unlaminated banner stand graphic is unlikely to suffer the negative effect of edge curl.
If you own a banner stand and find that edge curl is a problem then you can take some simply steps to try to minimise the effect before the display is used. As mentioned previously in this article, edge curl is a fault which is caused by the thermal expansion/contraction of the base material or the lamination film that is used. The banner stand should ideally be stored at room temperature prior to use to allow the printed graphic to stabilise. Furthermore, the print should be assembled a few hours or preferably overnight prior to use which will allow the substrate to ‘relax’. By taking these preventative measures, you can help to minimise the negative impact of edge curl on your banner and ensure that your display has the best possible impact.
When sourcing a supplier for a roller banner stand or a replacement graphic for an existing banner stand, it is important that you select a company who have experience with the production of such printed display graphics. Ask to see a sample of work or some testimonials from previous satisfied customers and you can be assured that you will purchase the best possible product.

Allergy Spares No One, Not Even Celebrities!

Allergy indeed is an inevitable thing, it spares no one! Allergies are abnormal reactions to ordinarily harmless substances. Allergic reactions occur when the immune system is triggered by allergens which can either be inhaled, swallowed or come in contact with skin.

Some of the most common allergens are; pollens, dust, foods, insect bites, mold spores, viruses, bacteria, even sudden change in environmental condition, plants and perfumes. People may vary in allergic reactions, some may have simple frequent sneezing, others may have skin rash from mild to severe, and some people may have other allergic reaction.

Celebrities With Allergies

Celebrities need to look good in front of the cameras all the timejust imagine seeing your favourite star sneezing all the time during an interview, or having those swollen nose, swollen lips or even swollen face because of allergies. That would be so shameful! But allergies are inevitable thing; anyone can have allergieseven stars!

Some of these stars are never ashamed to admit that they too have allergies; the telltale itchy, puffy, watery eyes and red, stuffy nose signal changes in the seasons in homes and workplaces across the country. What these people suffer from is allergic rhinitis, or hay fever. Hugh Grant, Scarlet Johansson and Hillary Duff all have hay fever. So the next time you see them on screen with the red nose, they may be suffering from their allergic rhinitis again!

As a celebrity, they must not only look goodthey should also smell really good because they will be dealing with so many people. But the perception of what really smells good for Eva Longoria and Drew Barrymore may be confusing because they are both allergic to perfumes.

Cats and dogs has been once a trend among the celebrities, we often see them cuddle them around. But for Paula Abdul, Nicole Ritchie, Tyra Banks and Alanis MorissetteĀ  Cats are NO NO! These celebrities are all allergic to cats. Nelly Furtado is another star whos allergic to dogs, for his reason we never see her on screen with a dog. The furs on these pets probably trigger their allergies.

Sharon Stone and Anna Kournikova are both allergic to flowers. Mandy Moore is allergic to smoke, perhaps during her concerts she would not allow the smoke effect. Steve Martin, like many other ordinary people is allergic to shellfish. Its one of the most common allergies which so many people are suffering from. Britney Spears and Antonio Banderas are both allergic to insect sting; they often have this inflammation from an insect bite.

For this reason, it is very important to have an allergy test. Having an allergy test will help you avoid those allergens which cause your allergic reaction. As to what they always say, prevention is better than cure.

The Pros And Cons Of Owning A Reptile Or Amphibian

Reptiles and amphibians are unique and unusual pets. They can be beautiful and fun to observe, and there is a thrill in owning a pet that might be dangerous, such as a snake. Here, we review the pros and cons of keeping such animals as pets.

Reptiles are one of the most common pets that fall into the “unusual” category. There are many lizards and snakes, varying from the more exotic (and expensive) to the more common, which tend to run cheaper.

Snakes and lizards are content keeping to themselves, but usually allow themselves to be handled, and are much safer to be handled if done so on a regular basis. Watching them grow and shed their skins (for snakes, anyway) can be educational for children. Watching them eat can be entertaining and exciting, perhaps even frightening. Temperaments can often be predicted by species.

The cons of owning a reptile are first, the cost of containment and upkeep: Terrariums can be expensive, especially if you need a large one; food for your reptile may be more difficult to obtain than, say, dog food; also, depending on the size of your reptile, particularly with snakes, the food may have to be quite large, and therefore more expensive. Second, keeping the terrarium clean is of vital importance to the health of your pet, and can be quite a smelly experience. Reptiles require the heat of a lamp and a place to hide. Third, safety can be an issue. It can be exciting to own a pet with fangs, until those fangs are embedded in your arm. It’s definitely something to consider.

Frogs and toads are quite common, and yet unusual, pets as well. Some of the pros of owning an amphibian are that watching their life cycle, if you are able to obtain tadpoles, is always educational; watching a frog or toad catch a fly with its tongue or take a large leap is fun, particularly for children; they can be handled daily or left alone and simply observed.

Some cons of owning an amphibian are similar to that of reptiles: A terrarium is recommended, which can be expensive and smelly to clean; food may be more difficult to obtain and more expensive; safety is an issue for some frogs, such as the colorful tree frogs, because their skin secretes a mild toxin, so anyone handling the animal must be careful to immediately wash their hands afterward. Another con is the necessity of maintaining a safe water pH level.

Effectively Stocking Your Vending Machines

To many owners of vending machines make the mistake of filling them up with items they like or those they have found on sale. However, to be successful you need to take the time to find out what consumers want from vending machines. You definitely don’t want the products to sit there and not sell but this can happen even with a good location if you don’t have a wide variety of products to offer.

In the vending machine business, if you don’t keep consumers happy your competition will. I have worked in buildings where there are several vending machines but many people go to a certain one even though it isn’t the closest. Why? Because the have found it to offer plenty of selections and that is what they really want

Most people enjoy a variety of different drinks so make sure they are able to select what they want from your vending machine. Even if you only stock soda in the vending machine you should offer several different flavors. Many people enjoy diet soda so make sure you offer that as well.

Most snack vending machines allow you to offer plenty more selections, so make sure you cover all the different types of snacks. Someone may need a healthy boost while another person may be looking for something to satisfy their sweet tooth. Candy bars are a very common product to place in vending machines. There are many different varieties you can offer.

The same concept is true with snack vending machines because you have to appeal to the needs of those that will most likely frequent your vending machine. If it is placed in a school don’t expect healthy foods to sell as well as they would in a work environment with health conscious adults coming to your vending machine for a quality snack.

If your snack vending machine is located in a building where people work you will want to offer them items that they can use to get them by until lunch time, or for a boost of energy in the afternoon. They won’t always want sweets to satisfy them so make sure you offer chips, crackers, and nuts. It is very common for granola bars and fruit snacks to be found in these vending machines as well.

Make sure your vending machine offers some healthy snacks so that people can make a good choice if they want to. Offering granola bars, fruit bars, and mixed nuts means they don’t have to ruin their eating habits if they want something from the vending machine.

Having a successful vending machine business means that you are able to offer consumers what they want. By offering a good selection of items you will generate more business. Keep a good idea on the items in your vending machine and how quickly they are moving. This way you can replace those that don’t seem to be selling very well.

Simple Tips To Sit Up Straight On Your Horse

To help your dressage, saddle seat, or Western horse stay in good balance, make sure you sit up straight. You want to keep a classical plumb line with your shoulders directly over your hips and over your heels.

In this article, I’ll give you five quick tips to help you sit up straight and in balance.

1. First, check that your saddle fits your horse and the the center of the saddle is the deepest point of the seat. If the saddle tips up too high in front, it’ll make you lean behind the vertical. If the saddle is too high in the back, you’ll end up leaning forward.

2. Once you know your saddle is okay, check your longitudinal balance. Many riders lean behind the vertical (especially in trot extensions!) because they think they’re driving their horses more forward.

The problem with leaning back, however, is that you end up pushing your horse’s back down, and he becomes hollow and disconnected. You’ll also be sitting behind the movement rather than in harmony with your horse.

So if you tend to lean back, here’s a quick tip to give you some muscle memory for keeping your upper body straight.

While you’re standing on the ground, lean back and ask a friend to put the palm of her hand between your shoulder blades. Ask her to gently push your upper body forward until your shoulders are above your hips.

Repeat this several times. Close your eyes as you’re being pushed forward so you can really memorize the feeling of bringing your upper body over your hips.

Then when you’re riding your horse, visualize your friend is gently pushing your upper body forward so you can sit up straight.

3. Now let’s look at the opposite scenario which is leaning too far forward. For this exercise, focus on your hip angles. If you’re leaning in front of the vertical, your hip angles are too closed.

So while you’re sitting on your horse in the halt or walk, lean about 10 inches behind the vertical. Then sit upright so your shoulders are over your hips.

Do this several times. As you lean back, focus on what it feels like when your hip angles open. You can even close your eyes to really concentrate on how it feels to open your hips.

Then when you’re riding your horse, if you start to tip too far forward, visualize leaning back so you actually end up sitting up straight. The exercise you’ve done at the halt and walk will give you the muscle memory to find the happy medium and sit upright.

4. You can also do the same sort of exercise you did in #2 to fix leaning too far back. If you’re leaning too far forward, pretend someone is standing in front of you with a hand on each shoulder. “Feel” and “see” the person pushing your shoulders back.

Then, whenever you start to tip forward, imagine your friend pushing you back. If that’s a hard image for you, pretend they’re standing behind you and pulling your shoulders back.

5. Once you know that you’re straight longitudinally, check your lateral balance. Are your shoulders and hips level or are you collapsing one side of your waist?

To help you stretch up evenly on both sides of your body, imagine you have a toothpick between your last rib and your belt buckle on each side of your body.

If you collapse your waist, you’ll get jabbed by the toothpick on one side and the other toothpick will fall out and land on the ground.

It might seem like an unimportant detail to sit up straight on your horse, but you’ll be accomplishing two important things. You’ll help your horse find his balance with weight on top of him. And your aids will be much more effective when you give them from a balanced, centered position.
