    Vitamin D3 to the Rescue – Beyond the Label

    in Health

    Before the year 2000, very few doctors ever considered the possibility that you might be vitamin D deficient, however, as the technology to measure vitamin D became inexpensive and widely available, more and more studies were done and it became increasingly clear that vitamin D deficiency was absolutely rampant.  Vitamin D deficiency is incredibly common in the US but many Americans mistakenly believe they aren't at risk because they consume vitamin-D-fortified foods (such as milk). There are very few foods that actually have therapeutic levels of vitamin D naturally and even fortified foods do not contain enough vitamin D to support your health needs


    Some signs that may indicate you are at risk of Vitamin D deficiency are: you have darker skin, you feel “blue,” you are 50 or older, you are overweight/obese/have a higher muscle mass, your bones ache, you have a sweaty head, and/or you have Gut trouble.  A new study has found that an insufficient level of vitamin D in older adults doubles the risk of Alzheimer ’s disease. But it’s not just older folks who aren’t getting enough of the sunshine vitamin; most kids don’t get sufficient amounts either.


    What is vitamin D? Why is it important? Why aren’t people getting enough? And what are its best food sources? Join us on HEALTH OUTSIDE THE BOX to learn answers to these questions, what to do about it and MORE!

    Race & Relations: The American Judicial System

    in The Bible

    The television is bombarded with images of the injustice of African Americans in this country and while Lady Justice is sitting quietly, turning a blind eye and deaf ear to the continuous pain and unfair mistreatment of African Americans, it's clear that though others may not value the lives of our black youths--something has to be done!


    Bishop McKinney addresses a lot of the concerns that surrounds the judicial system regarding black lives and what we need to do as a community and as a race of people to become economically ahead and not participate in destroying the lives of our fellow black sisters and brothers because it truly is a spiritual warfare!  We must be ahead of the game and stop refusing to be last when everyone who is not of African descent has benefited off of the sweat and blood of our African ancestors.  We must educate ourselves by putting down the video games and picking up a book.  We must empower ourselves by being filled with the spirit of God so that he can direct our footsteps and we must not kill each other, leaving another heartbroken parent to carry the pain of grief because the life of her/his child was snuffed out.


    Did Dr. Martin Luther King and so many march for nothing?  Did Rosa Park refuse to sit in the back of the bus for no reason?  Was Harriet Tubman's Underground Railroad in vain? But more importantly, does Black Lives Matter?

    WORLD WIDE AFRICA THE VOICE OF THE PAN AFRICAN MOVEMENT

    "SICKLE-CELL ANEMIA RESEARCH FOUNDATION


    Established  by the Black Panther party in 1971to test and create a cure for sickle-cell anemia ( a deadly blood disease that affects primarily Black Americans), the Sickle-Cell Anemia Research Foundation informs people about sickle-cell anemia and maintains a national advisory committee of doctors to research this crippling disease.


    In conjunction with the People’s Free Medical Research Health Clinics the Sickle -Cell  Anemia Research Foundation to date has tested nearly half a million people throughout the country in the last three years.


    While more research  is needed to discover treatment and a cure for the disease, people must first be informed about it and tested to see if they have it or its side effects. To accomplish this, the Sickle -Cell Anemia Research Foundation publishes and disseminates brochures and other printed materials with facts about sickle-cell anemia." HUEY P. NEWTON "The Black Panther Party Service to the People Programs 


    Sickle cell anemia (sickle cell disease) is a disorder of the blood caused by an inherited abnormal hemoglobin (the oxygen-carrying protein within the red blood cells). The abnormal hemoglobin causes distorted (sickled) red blood cells. The sickled red blood cells are fragile and prone to rupture. When the number of red blood cells decreases from rupture (hemolysis), anemia is the result. This condition is referred to as sickle cell anemia. The irregular sickled cells can also block blood vessels causing tissue and organ damage and pain.

    The Classic Khmer Adventure On Wheels-Cambodia's Bamboo Train

    in Travel

    I was staying in Battambang, Cambodia. While I was there I had to visit one of the area’s most famous attractions, the bamboo train. The bamboo train gets it’s name from the  bamboo deck or floorboard used that rests on top of the wheels that can transport anything from chickens and rice to people. In Khmer it’s called a Lorry and has been used since the Khmer Rouge shutdown of most regular train service in the country.  


    The Bamboo Train Station. Now where is the first class lounge? I could use a bloody mary about right now! Waiter?  Actually the place is quite charming and surprisingly not touristy feeling at all. At least not at the starting point in O Dambong, about 4 km from Battambang.


    The bamboo train solves the biggest problem of a single track train line. What do you do when two trains meet from opposite directions? In the case of the bamboo train? Simple-move one off the track. This experience alone makes this one of the world’s all time great train rides.


    A little heavy on the photo gear I know but I’m a one man show right now.


    Farewells from the departure crew and we’re off. 


    The bamboo train was not the first flatbed type service in Cambodia. During the civil war of the 80’s and 90’s flatbed trains were used as mine sweepers ahead of the rest of the train. Service was free, risky but popular. 


    And here we go about 3 minutes into the ride and our first stop. Wow, now that’s taking service station to the next level. The first lorries or bamboo trains were actually hand driven with a pole, kind of like an Italian gondola. Small motorcycle or tractor engines, like this one were added later. The wheels? They’re actually from abandoned tanks! Yes get your ass off the deck so I can do my job, thank you! Excerpts from "Great Train Rides Of The World-Cambodia's Bamboo Train".
