Saturday Off

Today it's my first saturday off from a long time.
No school so I've decided to find some time to browse in the net

Online Gym

I was told yesterday that we have already a Portuguese online gym where you can pay a monthly amount and see classes online whenever and wherever you want and need. That sounds great but can it actually work?
I’ll find out more about it and try to thing if it might work.

Teaching... not an easy task

I've noticed over the past few weeks that the children at school are a bit - well - horrid. Yes, I believe that would be the correct term. They are just very rowdy - which makes it very difficult to teach a lesson. I believe it's the old "testing the new teacher" thing which all students feel obligated to embark upon when school starts. One boy actually said to me today during class "Miss, we thought you were leaving." I said "Leaving for where?" "Leaving school because you couldn't handle us."Excuse me?I informed the little angels that I wasn't going anywhere. And despite how they were taught in previous years, I am their teacher now. They need to trust me and cooperate and we will have a fun, productive class. There's no reason why we both can't get what we want.Of course - my ideas sound great, but will they actually work.I think I need to re-read The Secret - a spiritual lift is in order.

Energy Drinks - more disadvantages then advantages

The energy drinks (like red bull) differ considerably from Isotonic drinks, despite being regularly confused as the same thing. The difference lies mainly in the presence of caffeine and taurine.

The CAFEÍNA present in high doses in energy drinks acts on the brain, stimulating it, inducing him the feeling of energy without limits and getting you rid of the sensation of tiredness body. Yet this false energy that the person feels, has no match practice in calories actually available in your body, and this imbalance can be proven as dangerous, especially in a high intensity sport. In addition to caffeine leads to increased blood pressure and is not recommended for people with heart problems and hypertension.

The TAURINE (Here comes the name red bull-taurine presents a reddish colour), is an amino acid naturally in some foods (and in small quantities), but that the energy drinks shows high values (a can of Red Bull has about as much taurine 500 cups of wine), which leads to the increase of the effects of other stimulants, also increasing the heart rate. The energy drinks have also sugar and some is also ephedrine. This substance combined with caffeine, may cause serious heart problems. Another substance sometimes this is the pyruvate that in high doses can cause gastrointestinal problems. Moreover, the mix of energy with alcohol - is very dangerous and can lead to death, inclusive. Manufacturers are massive campaigns to elude these consumers telling them the products are harmless. This year the one that holds the monopoly of the market, red bull has its own team of F1. Curious is that the red bull is based in Fuschl am See, Austria, which is located near Berchtesgaden, where Hitler had its general headquarters (Obersalzberg - the eagle nest).

How Colors Effect Our Emotions

How Colors Effect Our Emotions
by Janeth Duque
One of the most interesting things to me is how colors effect the way we think and feel. They effect us whether we are aware of it or not. Some colors effect us more then others but they all have their own individual properties that effect the way people feel.
All colors don't effect all people in the same ways, however, there have been extensive studies done that show how colors effect the majority of people in the same ways. As with all rules, there are exceptions, but to ignore the power of colors would be to ignore an essential element of a good website design.
Another extremely important element to colors is not only the properties or emotions each color conjures up in each of us, but also how combinations of colors make people feel. And to further complicate your perfect color selection you also have to be concerned with the fact that people have to be able to read your content or the most beautiful color in the world will be for nothing. No matter how important the content on your site may be to someone, if they can't read it due to bad color selection they will leave in search of another site to serve their needs.
Here are only a few colors and what emotions have been shown to be raised with each.
* Green jealousy, good luck, and harmony* Blue calming, peaceful and builds trust* Red color of action, anger, Love, impulse and impatient* Purple nobility, spirituality and creativity, passion* White pure color, innocent and clean* Black serious, mysterious, mournful and lifeless* Yellow happy, cheerful and joy * Orange positive, enthusiastic and warmth
People believe you can even see colors in music, one thing is for sure though, colors cause a physical and emotional reaction in each of us. Colors can cause headaches, sickness, relaxation, pleasure, tension, passion, peacefulness or irritation.
There are literally hundreds of sites dedicated to the research and insight into colors and the reactions they cause in the people viewing them. We'd suggest that you do as much research into this area of your website as you can stand as in the long run it will pay off in sales or return visits to your site.
