Headaches

Headache pain is an extremely common symptom of an illness. In the majority of cases, it is caused by a viral infection, such as the common cold or flu. The patient experiences sudden or recurring episodes of a headache that can be debilitating and disruptive to day-to-day life.

The severity and location of headache pain is often a good indicator of what might be going on inside the head. There are five main types: tension, cluster, vascular, sinus and migraine. A primary care physician will typically rule out more serious causes before determining if it’s a type of headache.

These are some good signs that your headache is not due to a cold: -The pain lasts longer than three days.

A headache may last between a few hours and a few weeks. Headache pain can be mild or it can be severe. It is also possible that the headache pain goes away after some time and it never returns (known as “cluster headaches”).

Pain above the eye, pain below the eye, neck pain, scalp tenderness, nausea or vomiting, sensitivity to light – these are different signs of migraine.

Tension headaches are caused by muscle spasms in the head and neck. They are often caused by stress, anxiety, or depression.

Tension headaches can be relieved by tension-relievers like meditation, yoga, acupuncture, massage therapy, and chiropractic care.

Some tension headache episodes – κεφαλαλγίες – may be caused by dehydration or lack of sleep. Hence they can be relieved with water or drinks with caffeine in them.

Atkins diet

The Atkins Diet, officially called the Atkins Nutritional Approach, is a low-carbohydrate diet promoted by Robert Atkins from a research paper he read in The Journal of the American Medical Association published by Alfred W. Pennington, titled “Weight Reduction”, published in 1958.[1]

Atkins used the study to resolve his own overweight condition. He later popularized the method in a series of books, starting with Dr. Atkins’ Diet Revolution in 1972. In his second book, Dr. Atkins’ New Diet Revolution (2002), he modified parts of the diet but did not alter the original concepts.

The New Atkins for a New You (2010) is based upon a broad array of information gained over the last decade not covered in previous editions, including nutrient-rich foods. The New Atkins for a New You Cookbook was released in 2011 by Colette Heimowitz to provide dieters with simple, low-carb recipes.

IBM China workers strike over terms in $2.3 billion Lenovo deal

More than 1,000 workers at an IBM factory in southern China have gone on strike against the terms of their transfer to Chinese PC maker Lenovo Group Ltd caused by the U.S. company’s $2.3 billion sale of its low-end server business.

Several workers gather outside gate of the International Business Machines Corp factory in Shenzhen on Thursday said production remains suspended for a fourth straight day.

“So far, we’ve heard nothing from the management or the government in response to our demands,” said Hou Hongbo, a 10- year worker at the factory. “The company’s attitude so far is to ignore us, but the entire production remains shut down.”

The workers want higher pay if they choose to transfer to Lenovo or higher severance packages if they choose to leave. Hou said they were determined to keep their action going.

“We will definitely keep striking tomorrow,” he said.

The terms offered to workers at the International System Technology Company factory in Shenzhen are “comparable in aggregate to what they currently are receiving,” IBM spokeswoman Florence Ma said in an e-mailed statement. If workers choose to leave, they will receive an “equitable severance package,” Ma said.

“We are hoping employees will decide to remain with ISTC,” Ma said.

Lenovo declined comment.

Workers at Chinese factories are increasingly turning to protests and factory shut-downs when they feel the terms of international takeovers are not good enough or labor conditions have worsened.

Hundreds of employees stopped work at a Nokia factory in Dongguan in November, complaining of changes following Nokia’s sale of its mobile phone business to U.S. software giant Microsoft Corp.

Last August, 5,000 workers in eastern Shandong Province went on strike to protest Apollo Tires Ltd’s proposed $2.5 billion acquisition of U.S.-based Cooper Tire & Rubber Co.

God Only Takes The Best by Christopher Warner

God saw that she was getting tired and a cure was not meant to be So He Put His Arms Around Her And Whispered “Come With Me” With Tearful Eyes We Watched Her Suffer And Watched Her Fade Away Although We Loved Her Dearly We Could Not Make Her Stay A Golden Heart Stopped Beating And A Warm Loving Heart To Rest GOD Broke Our Hearts To Prove To Us That He Only Takes The Best

In memory by Kimberly N. Chastain

A thousand times we needed you A thousand times we cried If love alone could have saved you you never would have died A heart of gold stopped beating two twinkling eyes closed to rest God broke our hearts to prove he only took the best never a day goes by that you’re not in my heart and my soul.

In Our Hearts by Rose de Leon

We thought of you with love today, But that is nothing new. We thought about you yesterday. And days before that too. We think of you in silence. We often speak your name. Now all we have is memories. And your picture in a frame. Your memory is our keepsake. With which we’ll never part. God has you in his keeping. We have you in our heart.
