Ashwagandha: Snapshot

Online Herbalist

Practitioners of Ayurvedic medicine, the traditional medicine of India, regard this root as the Indian answer to ginseng for the male libido. It is mainly used in the West as a restorative for the elderly and the chronically ill. For such regenerative purposes, it can be taken as a milk decoction to which may be added raw sugar, honey, pippali and basmati rice. As such, it inhibits ageing and catalyses the anabolic processes of the body. It is a good food for weak pregnant women, it helps to stabilise the fetus. It also regenerates the hormonal system, promotes healing of tissues, and can be used externally on wounds, sores, etc. Ashwagandha is believed to maintain the immune system and is often prescribed in India to be taken along with antibiotics to prevent weakening of the immune system. It elevates iron levels in the blood, slightly decreases respiration, lowers…

Variables, Variables, Variables…. #Math @jgreenhood

variable-constantBy definition, a variable varies or changes. Discuss some examples in your lives where some things are always constant and never change while other things may vary. For example, think about your cell phone bill. Is it constant or does it vary and if so, why? What about rent, grocery bills, etc.

Life is like a list of data. You will always have bills and expenses which are constants but the amounts are never set so they are variables. With some exceptions. Our internet is $80 a month till they jack it up. *sigh* Cell phone is $25 a month. Things like electricity, groceries, gas tend to vary.

Because of WiFi, data plans don’t have to be so large. You can change the variable of the price by switching services on your phone. Some services throttle your data. There’s always things one can do to lower the variable price on all those other things too.

It’s hard when your busy or trying to eat healthily to keep your grocery budget as constant as possible. One can’t live on Ramen alone. LOL Clipping coupons can take time. Granted Publix, Walgreens, WalMart & Winn dixie all have their ways of automating savings and adding digital coupons. In addition, it’s why apps like Check out 51 (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site., Ibotta (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. and Receipt Hog (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site., you can reduce the variable of the cost of groceries.

Another way to lower your cable bill constant by getting rid of your cable company. We use an android box called R-box. It was a 1 time payment of $100 but it came with a remote and mini keypad. LOVE it! I use an app called Kodi  (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.that allows you to watch whatever you want!  The cool part about Kodi is you can use it on a PC, Tablet or Cell phone but, for TV it always requires a Firestick, Android box or other similar devices.

Unfortunately, our internet bill is a constant of $80 with spectrum but, AT&T recently came by and offered us the same internet for $45. So we are looking at making a change. The best part is changing companies for the internet is not like changing cable companies where you learn a new system and reprogram to DVR the shows you like etc….

Scientific Notation, #Math in the real world @jgreenhood


Discuss how scientific notation is used in our daily and work lives when we are dealing with VERY SMALL and VERY LARGE numbers. Since all of you are studying to be in the medical field, scientific notation is very important. Discuss situations in which you have encountered the use of scientific notation.

Scientific notation (also referred to as standard form or standard index form) is a way of expressing numbers that are too big or too small to be conveniently written in decimal form. It is commonly used by scientists, mathematicians, and engineers, in part because it can simplify certain arithmetic operations.”

Honestly, right now beyond writing 1,000 I sometimes write it as 1K which is shorter but not what you’re asking about. Other than that I don’t use it at all. In the medical field you might use it in dosing but, as we learned in class too (KISS) keep it simple we are unlikely to see 2ml5 because there is the potential that it was not 2x2x2x2x2 it should have been 2×5. In all do honesty only place in my life I’ve ever seen it was in Math & Chemistry class.

As I’m currently going to school to be a medical assistant one classmate brought up it being used in the field. Unfortunately,  Although calculations can be required for dosages. There is never a reason for them to be written in scientific notation. The only time we may see anything written in scientific notation as far as I can find it’s only done in reference of bacteria counts.

x+y = coordinates Math @jgreenhood

Think of situations in which it might be helpful to set up coordinate planes, using an x-axis and a y-axis. What kind of information might you plot on this coordinate plane? Can you see any trends by looking at points on a coordinate plane?

coordinateMany of my classmates had some great responses from video games, GPS & Roadmaps. What would you say?

I know normally when you use a GPS you enter street addresses but you can enter coordinates as well. There is this game called geocaching (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. It’s kind of fun. It’s like looking for treasure! Here’s an example, I live in the same zip as the school, 32809. Big Oak (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.‘s cash is at coordinates: N 28° 28.792 W 081° 22.847. So if you plug in those coordinates to your GPS or google maps you will see where X marks the spot.

Here are some of my responses to my classmates….

I recall in one of the MA classes were we charted children’s growth patterns, using measurements of the head, chest, and length. Using those numbers on the chart helped one to know if the child was on target or if there may be a health issue.

Can you imagine what have must have been like for sailors to use Stars or a Sextant to navigate by? Still using coordinates but, I am so thankful for my GPS.

Perfect example! If you ever want to track a family member’s flight, you should go to Flightaware (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.. It’s scary at first to see all those planes covering the US, but it’s interesting to see on the map where they are going.

My husband builds model airplanes. The coordinates on the plans show how long a wing rib should be and where it should go in order to make it structurally sound. This is also used in 3D CAD designing as well as well as in graphic arts design. Entering the wrong coordinates can change the design completely.

Positive & Negative #Math in the workplace @jgreenhood


, , ,

positive_negative_r07c7dSo I just finished my Algebra class and we had a few interesting conversations so I thought I’d share. One of our discussions was, “Can you think of situations, either in your workplace or in your home or recreational activities where you might use both positive and negative numbers? How important is it to pay close attention to the “signs, + or -” that go with numbers?” So I’m curious what your responses would be to this question.

Here is mine….

Other than in this class, I do not really use negative numbers. I always kept it simple. Online banking balances your account. I don’t do checks. So I guess the closest I’ve gotten to using negative numbers is inventory. For example had an order for a Xoar 20 x 8 WW II Three Bladed prop, unfortunately, we were all out of them. So now our inventory is -1 until our order from China comes in. Again other than that the PC handles all that but we at least know how much we need to balance the inventory to 0.

100% All Organic Detox By @YoungLeaf #YoungLeafTeas @Jgreenhood

Always Check with your doctor if you’re on any medications prior to using a detox. Although this has organic natural herbs & tastes great, some herbs do have reactions with prescription medications.

Detox tea helps to naturally flush out toxins that build up over time in your body. Although I don’t know if any of these products would have affected the Chemo treatments my mother had I think this would have helped with a lot of her other issues.

Life love and everything in between

My video is short and to the point. Since I live in Florida and it’s still been hot I’ve not been drinking any tea. Although this tea is also great cold! I found it had a slight sweetness so found no need to add sweetener.

So What are the ingredients and how are they good for you?

Happy New Year!

Past couple of years has been hard, but with everything crashing this year seems to have been the hardest yet. I mean it when I say it this every year, “May the new year be better than the last.”.

Sadly, this time, I’m going to try a new mantra. I know 2016 is going to be hard, but in some ways, it will be better. I’ve been working hard on making me & my life better.

Oh and that stupid probate gets resolved!

Happy New Year!

The Penny Hoarder has tons of great articles, but this one is a perfect follow up to my post with only 1 app I talked about being re-mentioned.
