Good Food Sources Of Antioxidants

* Vitamin C -- Also called ascorbic acid, vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin found in all body fluids, so it may be one of our first lines of defense. This powerful antioxidant cannot be stored by the body, so it's important to get some regularly -- not a difficult task if you eat fruits and vegetables. Important sources include citrus fruits, green peppers, broccoli, green leafy vegetables, strawberries, raw cabbage and potatoes.
* Vitamin E -- A fat-soluble vitamin that can be stored with fat in the liver and other tissues, vitamin E is promoted for a range of purposes -- from delaying aging to healing sunburn. While it's not a miracle worker, it's another powerful antioxidant. Important sources include wheat germ, nuts, seeds, whole grains, green leafy vegetables, vegetable oil and fish-liver oil.
* Beta-carotene -- The most studied of more than 600 different carotenoids that have been discovered, beta-carotene protects dark green, yellow and orange vegetables and fruits from solar radiation damage. It is thought that it plays a similar role in the body. Carrots, squash, broccoli, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, kale, collards, cantaloupe, peaches and apricots are particularly rich sources of beta-carotene.
* Selenium -- This mineral is thought to help fight cell damage by oxygen-derived compounds and thus may help protect against cancer. It is best to get selenium through foods, as large doses of the supplement form can be toxic. Good food sources include fish, shellfish, red meat, grains, eggs, chicken and garlic. Vegetables can also be a good source if grown in selenium-rich soils.

Migraine Headaches

Migraine is a neurological syndrome characterized by altered bodily experiences, painful headaches, and nausea. It is a common condition which affects women more frequently than it does men.

The typical migraine headache is one-sided and pulsating, lasting 4 to 72 hours. Accompanying complaints are nausea and vomiting, and a heightened sensitivity to bright lights (photophobia) and noise (hyperacusis). Approximately one third of people who experience migraine get a preceding aura, in which a patient may sense a strange light or unpleasant smell. Patients often describe triggers they feel precipitate an episode of migraine, such as certain foods and beverages (like chocolate or alcohol), stress or menstruation. In some migraine types there are typical features but the headache remains absent, and in children abdominal pain may be a prominent feature.

Although the exact cause of migraine remains unknown, the most widespread theory is that it is a disorder of the serotonergic control system. Genetic factors may also contribute. Studies on twins show that genes have a 60 to 65% influence on the development of migraine . Fluctuating hormone levels show a relation to migraine in several ways: three quarters of adult migraine patients are female while migraine affects approximately equal numbers of boys and girls before puberty, and migraine is known to disappear during pregnancy in a substantial number of sufferers.

The treatment of migraine begins with simple painkillers for headache and anti-emetics for nausea, and avoidance of triggers if present. Specific anti-migraine drugs can be used to treat migraine. If the condition is severe and frequent enough, preventative drugs might be considered.

The word migraine is French in origin and comes from the Greek hemicrania, as does the Old English term megrim. Literally, hemicrania means "half (the) head".


Nim is a two-player mathematical game of strategy in which players take turns removing objects from distinct heaps. On each turn, a player must remove at least one object, and may remove any number of objects provided they all come from the same heap.

Variants of Nim have been played since ancient times. The game is said to have originated in China (it closely resembles the Chinese game of "Jianshizi", or "picking stones"), but the origin is uncertain; the earliest European references to Nim are from the beginning of the 16th century. Its current name was coined by Charles L. Bouton of Harvard University, who also developed the complete theory of the game in 1901, but the origins of the name were never fully explained. The name is probably derived from German nimm! meaning "take!", or the obsolete English verb nim of the same meaning. It should also be noted that turning the word NIM upside-down and backwards results in WIN (see Ambigram).

Nim is usually played as a misère game, in which the player to take the last object loses. Nim can also be played as a normal play game, which means that the person who makes the last move (i.e., who takes the last object) wins. This is called normal play because most games follow this convention, even though Nim usually does not.

Normal play Nim (or more precisely the system of nimbers) is fundamental to the Sprague-Grundy theorem, which essentially says that in normal play every impartial game is equivalent to a Nim heap that yields the same outcome when played in parallel with other normal play impartial games (see disjunctive sum).

A version of Nim is played – and has symbolic importance– in the French New Wave film Last Year at Marienbad (1961).

Asparagus officinalis

The spring growth of this plant resembles a cluster of green fingers. (It looks just like the asparagus you find in the supemarket) The mature plant has fern-like, wispy foliage and red berries. Its flowers are small and greenish in color. Several species have sharp, thorn like structures.
Habitat and Distribution

Asparagus is found worldwide in temperate areas. Look for it in fields, old home sites, and fence rows.
Edible Parts

Eat the young stems before leaves form. Steam or boil them for 10 to 15 minutes before eating. Raw asparagus may cause nausea or diarrhea. The fleshy roots are a good source of starch.

Do not eat the fruits of any since some are toxic.

Edible Wild Berries For Survival

It would be a good idea if anyone who goes deep into the wilderness learned how to gather wild foods. You can get lost, a bear can eat your food, and you can lose your pack. Realistically, though, most people won't take the time to learn wilderness survival skills. That is why edible wild berries are such a blessing for all back country travelers.

Edible wild berries look and taste like their domestic counterparts, meaning you can find safe food in the wilderness without training or identification guides. If you know what strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and raspberries look like and taste like, then you can identify the wild varieties. They'll be smaller, but just as full of flavor and nutrition.

When you have time, pick up a good identification guide and go for a walk with it. If you learn a few new berries a year, you'll feel more at home in the wild. On a day hike in Glacier National Park, we ate wild blueberries, service berries, rose hips, blackberries, strawberries, high-bush cranberries, raspberries, thimbleberries and currants. It's a good feeling to be in the mountains and know that there is food all around you.

Can you really fill up on edible wild berries? Absolutely! Wild blueberries on rocky little islands in Lake Superior kept a friend and I from going hungry during a kayaking trip (we underestimated our food needs when packing). I did the math, based on the calorie count per ounce, and found that we could eat 500 calories of berries in an hour. With wild raspberries in the Rocky Mountains, I found I could gather and eat 500 calories in less than 30 minutes.

Start by tasting the next edible wild berries you see. If it taste like a raspberry, it is a raspberry. If it taste wrong, just spit it out. There are not many wild berries that look like a raspberries, strawberries or

blueberries, and virtually no berries in North America that can poison you from just a taste (except poison ivy berries - so avoid white berries if you are unsure).

Second Life Fashion

I had heard about FTV a few months ago, but had never made it out to the store to check them out. A few weeks ago I was wandering around the Velvet sim at their grand opening and was pleasantly surprised to FTV had a store on this sim. I made my way in and was kicking myself for not having visited it before. I was immediately drawn to the Punk Glam outfit. It's a little punkier then I usually dress, but I love to try different looks. One of the things I love about Second Life is that it allows you to be anyone you feel like being that day. One of the things I love about this dress are the awesome tights that are included. They are so edgy and fun! I paired them with a pair of boots, and it was just perfect for my edgy look for the day. The dress is a basic black babydoll with silver accents. At $250 L, it is a great addition to any wardrobe. The next outfit I picked up was the London outfit. This outfit is more of my traditional everyday look. I love the shorts, especially for summer. The cute little accent buttons on the shorts are just adorable too. The top is in an amazing plaid with a neutral color combination. I love the neck and the sexy cut out. It gives it that little sexy look without taking it too far. This outfit is sold for $300 L, and I know I'll be wearing each of these pieces in so many different ways, it is a great deal.

If you haven't been to Frozen Turquoise Valentine, I definitely recommend you stop by and check it out. I know you'll love it as much as I do.
