This 1956 kitchen hasn't been touched for 50 years

In a strange and unexpected discovery, furniture designer and creator Nathan Chandler found and bought a home that has remained sealed since 1956, keeping its mid-century American interior perfectly intact. Though the house has recently been sold, the retro interior design of this kitchen provided us with a look at a time long gone.
It’s not clear why the original owners of the home kept it sealed for so long, but we’re glad they did, because the interior décor elements are absolutely perfect. From the pastel pink counters to the manuals still attached to the unused GE home appliances, every detail is straight out of a 1950s American family sitcom.
The fate of this period kitchen is uncertain, but we’re glad to have had a look into such a strangely-preserved historic space! bank rakyat personal loan

When A Woman Pregnant Again

A worried woman went to her gynecologist and said:

'Doctor, I have a serious problem and desperately need your help! My baby is not even 1 year old and I'm pregnant again. I don't want kids so close together.'
So the doctor said: 'Ok and what do you want me to do?'
She said: 'I want you to end my pregnancy, and I'm counting on your help with this.'
The doctor thought for a little, and after some silence he said to the lady: 'I think I have a better solution for your problem. It's less dangerous for you too.'
She smiled, thinking that the doctor was going to accept her request.
Then he continued: 'You see, in order for you not to have to take care of 2 babies at the same time, let's kill the one in your arms. This way, you could rest some before the other one is born. If we're going to kill one of them, it doesn't matter which one it is. There would be no risk for your body if you chose the one in your arms.'
The lady was horrified and said: 'No doctor! How terrible! It's a crime to kill a child!'
'I agree', the doctor replied. 'But you seemed to be OK with it, so I thought maybe that was the best solution.'
The doctor smiled, realizing that he had made his point.
He convinced the mom that there is no difference in killing a child that's already been born and one that's still in the womb. The crime is the same!
If you agree, please SHARE.
Together we can help save precious lives!

A Mom With 3 Kids

Posted by Akula at 1:40 AM

0 comments Links to this post


Story A mom with 3 kids is standing on the shore remote parenting as her kids run in and out of the ocean. "Move back, don't get wet, you have your dinner clothes on! Don't make me say it again!" She said this each time the kids ran up to touch the surf. She must have repeated this at least 15 times.

Problem She took no action.
I could see the kids roll their eyes and close their ears. They knew mom was all talk and no action. 

If a parent is all talk and no action, then a reaction isn't far behind. If Mom had said, "I see that no one is listening, so it's time to go." Mom is able to ignore the pleas for one more chance, and the comments that she's mean as they leave the beach, because she knows the pleas and comments mean her kids are learning. 

The 2nd scenario is responding, not reacting. Mom is responding to the behavior that occurred before she took action. Mom knows that she wants her kids to listen the next time they're at the beach, so she's willing to make a point this time. 

There's no need for anger, no need for a consequence, in fact mom is wise enough to add empathy as the kids mutter under their breath as they leave the beach. "I know you don't want to leave the beach, I don't either. But I need you to listen, and you didn't, so we have to leave."

A statement tied to the behavior that isn't working followed by calm action, that's responding.

Its Time to Sleep Baby

Cat communication is the transfer of information by one or more cats that has an effect on the current or future behaviour of another animal, including humans. Cats use a range of communication modalities including visual, auditory, tactile, chemical and gustatory.

The communication modalities used by domestic cats have been affected by domestication.


Vocalizations

Cat vocalisations have been categorised according to a range of characteristics.

Schötz categorised vocalizations according to 3 mouth actions: (1) sounds produced with the mouth closed (murmurs), including the purr, the trill and the chirrup, (2) sounds produced with the mouth open and gradually closing, comprising a large variety of miaows with similar vowel patterns, and (3) sounds produced with the mouth held tensely open in the same position, often uttered in aggressive situations (growls, yowls, snarls, hisses, spits and shrieks).

Brown et al. categorised vocal responses of cats according to the behavioural context: (1) during separation of kittens from mother cats, (2) during food deprivation, (3) during pain, (4) prior to or during threat or attack behavior, as in disputes over territory or food, (5) during a painful or acutely stressful experience, as in routine prophylactic injections and (6) during kitten deprivation. Less commonly recorded calls from mature cats included purring, conspecific greeting calls or murmurs, extended vocal dialogues between cats in separate cages, “frustration” calls during training or extinction of conditioned responses.

Miller classified vocalisations into 5 categories according to the sound produced: the purr, chirr, call, meow and growl/snarl/hiss.
 
Purr

The purr is a continuous, soft, vibrating sound made in the throat by most species of felines. Domestic cat kittens can purr as early as two days of age. This tonal rumbling can characterize different personalities in domestic cats. Purring is often believed to indicate a positive emotional state, but cats sometimes purr when they are ill, tense, or experiencing traumatic or painful moments.

The mechanism of how cats purr is elusive. This is partly because cats do not have a unique anatomical feature that is clearly responsible for the vocalization. One hypothesis, supported by electromyographic studies, is that cats produce the purring noise by using the vocal folds and/or the muscles of the larynx to alternately dilate and constrict the glottis rapidly, causing air vibrations during inhalation and exhalation. Combined with the steady inhalation and exhalation as the cat breathes, a purring noise is produced with strong harmonics. Purring is sometimes accompanied by other sounds, though this varies between individuals. Some may only purr, while other cats include low level outbursts sometimes described as "lurps" or "yowps".

Domestic cats purr at varying frequencies. One study reported that domestic cats purr at average frequencies of 21.98 Hz in the egressive phase and 23.24 Hz in the ingressive phase with an overall mean of 22.6 Hz. Further research on purring in four domestic cats found that the fundamental frequency varied between 20.94 and 27.21 Hz for the egressive phase and between 23.0 and 26.09 Hz for the ingressive phase. There was considerable variation between the four cats in the relative amplitude, duration and frequency between egressive and ingressive phases, although this variation generally occurred within the normal range.

One study on a single cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus) showed it purred with an average frequency of 20.87 Hz (egressive phases) and 18.32 Hz (ingressive phases). A further study on four adult cheetahs found that mean frequencies were between 19.3 Hz and 20.5 Hz in ingressive phases, and between 21.9 Hz and 23.4 Hz in egressive phases. The egressive phases were longer than ingressive phases and moreover, the amplitude was greater in the egressive phases.

It was once believed that only the cats of the genus Felis could purr. However, felids of the genus Panthera (tigers, lions, jaguars and leopards) also produce sounds similar to purring, but only when exhaling. The subdivision of the Felidae into ‘purring cats’ on the one hand and ‘roaring cats ’ (i.e. non-purring) on the other, originally goes back to Owen (1834/1835) and was definitely introduced by Pocock (1916), based on a difference in hyoid anatomy. The ‘roaring cats’ (lion, Panthera leo; tiger, P. tigris; jaguar, P. onca; leopard, P. pardus) have an incompletely ossified hyoid, which according to this theory, enables them to roar but not to purr. On the other hand, the snow leopard (Uncia uncia), as the fifth felid species with an incompletely ossified hyoid, purrs (Hemmer, 1972). All remaining species of the family Felidae (‘purring cats’) have a completely ossified hyoid which enables them to purr but not to roar. However, Weissengruber et al. (2002) argued that the ability of a cat species to purr is not affected by the anatomy of its hyoid, i.e. whether it is fully ossified or has a ligamentous epihyoid, and that, based on a technical acoustic definition of roaring, the presence of this vocalization type depends on specific characteristics of the vocal folds and an elongated vocal tract, the latter rendered possible by an incompletely ossified hyoid.

Meow

The meow is one of the most widely known vocalizations of domestic kittens. It is a call apparently used to solicit attention from the mother.

Adult cats commonly vocalise with a "meow" (or "miaow") sound, which is onomatopoeic. The meow can be assertive, plaintive, friendly, bold, welcoming, attention soliciting, demanding, or complaining. It can even be silent, where the cat opens its mouth but does not vocalize. Adult cats do not usually meow to each other and so meowing to human beings is likely to be an extension of the use by kittens.
 
Language differences

Different languages have correspondingly different words for the "meow" sound, including miau (Belarusian, Croatian, Hungarian, Dutch, Finnish, Lithuanian, Malay, German, Polish, Russian, Portuguese, Romanian, Spanish and Ukrainian), mnau (Czech), meong (Indonesian), niau (Ukrainian), niaou (?????, Greek), miaou (French), nya (??, Japanese), miao (?, Mandarin Chinese, Italian), miav/miao or mjav/mjau (Danish, Swedish and Norwegian), mjá (Icelandic), ya-ong (??, Korean), ????? / Miya?un_ (Urdu) and meo-meo (Vietnamese). In some languages (such as Chinese ?, mao), the vocalization became the name of the animal itself.

How To Apologize To Your Kid

"How to apologize to your kid"

Situations do arise when you are the one who messed up and your kid deserves an apology from you. Saying sorry to your kid is a tricky affair; keep in mind these useful pointers while asking forgiveness of your child.

Do’s:

• Understand the situation where you were wrong on your part- was it unforgotten birthday, unfulfilled promise or a sudden outburst in front of others?

• Ask your child how your unjustified behavior affected him/her. This will help your child to realize that his/her feelings count and works well to build up your child’s self-esteem.

• Put in all your efforts not to repeat the same mistakes and let your child know so. Find out the reasons of such a harsh behavior and practical remedies to deal with them.

Don’ts:

• The trick is to draw a line between apologizing and imploring. Begging to your child will make him feel that you have done something terribly wrong.
• Even if you feel extremely emotional, do not break into tears. You might end up your child feeling guilty when he is not at fault.

• A disciplinary action never needs an apology so be firm if you think that your child is involved in some wrongful actions.

Share your experience when you said sorry to your kid and how it helped?

• Keep your kid hydrated: When your kid is going through a bout of sneezing and coughing, it is very important to keep him/her hydrated.
• If your baby has a stuffy nose, simply slice up an onion and place it on a plate next to the bed or crib.
• Rubbing warm mustard oil with a few garlic and cloves on chest, under nose, back of feet and palm also works.
• Take a pinch of turmeric powder and add 4-5 drops of milk to it. Apply this paste on baby's forehead.
• If your baby has a stuffy nose, go into bathroom and steam it up. Then hold your baby in there for a while, it can loosen that up with no side effects.

It is good to be slim and fit, but being skinny and lean can get with it a whole lot of troubles, like fatigue, anemia, low energy, etc. Here is a list of super foods that can add some extra pounds on your body, making you look fit and healthy.

1. Sweets

Lucky you!!! Sweets, like dark chocolate, ice-cream, cakes are rich in calories, and hence; they are extremely good for people, who want to gain weight. Well, it is a fact that everybody loves sweets, but it is necessary to consume them in moderation. These sweets are made up of sugar, milk products, and other sweet agents, which can prove to be cooperative for thin people to put on weight fast.

2. Nuts

The crunchy snacks, like peanuts, almonds, cashews, walnuts, etc. are affluent in the amount of healthy and rich nutrients, like fats, fibers, vitamins, and minerals, which not only make them an excellent therapy for a healthy heart, but also in gaining weight. These nuts contain essential oils, which assist a thin person to put on pounds fast.

3. Whole Grains

Whole grains include brown rice, cereals, oats, wheat, etc., which are the powerhouses of diverse nutrients. Brown or plain rice and oats are a good source of complex carbohydrates, which are the vital element for building your muscles.  On the other hand, cereals are a high calorie food, and they must be taken as a morning meal.

4. Dairy Fat

Dairy fats, like milk and cheese, are a great combination of calcium, proteins and fats. They are natural muscle building and weight gaining super foods.

5. Butter

Salted butter contains 36 calories per five grams of serving, and for this reason, this saturated fat is good for all those, who want to increase weight. Another type of butter is peanut butter, which is also an excellent way of consuming calories, minerals, vitamins, and various other health-defensive food elements.

6. Animal Fats

Animal fats, like white meat and red meat, are diverse in their properties. White meats, like turkey and chicken, are high in protein and carbohydrates and low in fat. However, red meat, like beef, is rich in calories and fats. The former foodstuffs are effective in muscle building and the latter is effective in gaining weight.

7. Banana

Banana is an excellent fruit for those, who want to put on weight. A large banana has 120 calories, which can instill fat, calories, as well as a good amount of potassium and mineral in a lean person. Banana shake is also a good alternative.

Eggs can prove to be a great starter for your day as this calorie-rich food can deliver you minerals, fats, and proteins. It not only maintains your brain and overall health, but also helps you in gaining weight.

What Type Treatment My Baby Need?

Many parents are often concerned about placing their child in residential treatment, especially if the best placement is far from home. Because of this fear, parents can sometimes then question if residential placement is necessary since outpatient and inpatient therapy tends to create a few days of what seems like peace. I have worked as an intern for inpatient, outpatient, a full therapist in outpatient, a staff for residential, and now a therapist in residential. This experience doesn’t account for other forms of treatment like an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) or Wilderness Program. 

Outpatient Therapy: 

Outpatient therapy allows the child to remain at home and work on issues on a weekly basis, or as the therapist and family deem necessary. Outpatient therapy is typically utilized for relatively minor issues that can be resolved within 6-9 months or semi-moderate issues that may take a year or two, depending on frequency and approach. As an outpatient therapist we work with schools and other community services to make sure that the family has the support that they need, while addressing some of the deeper issues and while the patient is remaining safe in their environment. Outpatient therapy tends to be the middle-man in the therapy lineup.  As an outpatient therapist we have to be aware of where our client is at with how much their behaviors interfere with their overall functioning and evaluate when to step them up to a higher level of care and hopefully have them finish therapy. 

Inpatient Treatment:

Inpatient level of care is for an imminent threat to self and/or others and cannot contract for safety. Inpatient level of care is for stabilization, typically lasting 3-7 days depending on the intensity of the risks and available supports at home and the community. As a therapist in the inpatient setting, the focus is to find ways to subside the feelings that created the high level of risk. Psycho-education groups, individual sessions, and family meetings are utilized to develop skills and supports to be more successful in the community and at home. It can be common for there to be repeat visits when outpatient modalities are not working and more long-term solutions are then discussed. 

Residential Treatment: 

#ResidentialTreatment is for when all the others weren’t enough. Having seen the other two phases of therapy, residential treatment is definitely the most challenging, but I am able to see the most changes. Residential treatment provides 24 hour care and submersion in therapy to get the greatest amount of gain. Having been a staff and now a therapist in a residential setting it’s remarkable to see the difference that can happen in a child in a relatively short amount of time. Like all types of therapy, the amount of change and the time to make the change, depends on the willingness of the child and their parents. In residential I often see my clients outside of therapy a few times, either just running into them or briefly meeting with them to work on minor issues that come up. In between therapy, they get support from groups and staff to help them address issues and work on skills. The important thing to keep in mind is having a good way for the client to transition back home so that the skills and issues they worked on while in residential treatment translate back to home.  By creating a good transition plan and practicing it while still in residential care give the client a chance to not just get good at treatment, they get good at life.  I know from experience, nothing is more relieving as a therapist than to have someone coming out of residential treatment having worked on their core issues and having worked on the maintenance side of their core issues. 

Working as a therapist in residential treatment is probably the most rewarding area of therapy that I’ve worked in. My experience here at Sunrise has also made it even more rewarding where we have quality staff and a quality program.  I’m really proud to work in a program that works with girls to help them get back on their feet and be good at their lives.

This is interesting. After reading this, you'll never look at a banana in the same way again.

Bananas contain three natural sugars - sucrose, fructose and glucose combined with fiber. A banana gives an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy.

Research has proven that just two bananas provide enough energy for a strenuous 90-minute workout. No wonder the banana is the number one fruit with the world's leading athletes.

But energy isn't the only way a banana can help us keep fit. It can also help overcome or prevent a substantial number of illnesses and conditions, making it a must to add to our daily diet.

DEPRESSION:
According to a recent survey undertaken by MIND amon gst people suffering from depression, many felt much better after eating a banana. This is because bananas contain tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin, known to make you relax, improve your mood and generally make you feel happier.

PMS:
Forget the pills - eat a banana. The vitamin B6 it contains regulates blood glucose levels, which can affect your mood.

ANEMIA:
High in iron, bananas can stimulate the production of hemoglobin in the blood and so helps in cases of anemia.

BLOOD PRESSURE:
This unique tropical fruit is extremely high in potassium yet low in salt, making it perfect to beat blood pressure So much so, the US Food and Drug Administration has just allowed the banana industry to make official claims for the fruit's ability to reduce the risk of blood pressure and stroke.

BRAIN POWER:
200 students at a Twickenham school ( England ) were helped through their exams this year by eating bananas at breakfast, break, and lunch in a bid to boost their brain power. Research has shown that the potassium-packed fruit can assist learning by making pupils more alert.

CONSTIPATION:
High in fiber, including bananas in the diet can help restore normal bowel action, helping to overcome the problem without resorting to laxatives.

HANGOVERS:
One of the quickest ways of curing a hangover is to make a banana milkshake, sweetened with honey. The banana calms the stomach and, with the help of the honey, builds up depleted blood sugar levels, while the milk soothes and re-hydrates your system.

HEARTBURN:
Bananas have a natural antacid effect in the body, so if you suffer from heartburn, try eating a banana for soothing relief.

MORNING SICKNESS:
Snacking on bananas between meals helps to keep blood sugar levels up and avoid morning sickness.

MOSQUITO BITES:
Before reaching for the insect bite cream, try rubbing the affected area with the inside of a banana skin. Many people find it amazingly successful at reducing swelling and irritation.

NERVES:
Bananas are high in B vitamins that help calm the nervous system..

Overweight and at work? Studies at the Institute of Psychology in Austria found pressure at work leads to gorging on comfort food like chocolate and chips. Looking at 5,000 hospital patients, researchers found the most obese were more likely to be in high-pressure jobs. The report concluded that, to avoid panic-induced food cravings, we need to control our blood sugar levels by snacking on high carbohydrate foods every two hours to keep levels steady.

ULCERS:
The banana is used as the dietary food against intestinal disorders because of its soft texture and smoothness. It is the only raw fruit that can be eaten without distress in over-chroniclercases. It also neutralizes over-acidity and reduces irritation by coating the lining of the stomach.

TEMPERATURE CONTROL:
Many other cultures see bananas as a 'cooling' fruit that can lower both the physical and emotional temperature of expectant mothers. In Thailand , for example, pregnant women eat bananas to ensure their baby is born with a cool temperature.

So, a banana really is a natural remedy for many ills. When you compare it to an apple, it has FOUR TIMES the protein, TWICE the carbohydrate, THREE TIMES the phosphorus, five times the vitamin A and iron, and twice the other vitamins and minerals.. It is also rich in potassium and is one of the best value foods around So maybe its time to change that well-known phrase so that we say, 'A BANANA a day keeps the doctor away!'
