Where you live, whether you own or rent, is your home. It s where life happens, where you make memories. Assurant helps you protect your home, and all the precious belongings in it. So you and your family can sleep well at night, no matter what you call home.

Renters/Apartment Insurance

You don t have to own a house to consider the place you live home. Assurant Renters Insurance allows you to protect your belongings if they are stolen or if your rental unit is damaged in the event of fire, smoke, water or explosion. We also provide additional living expenses if your unit is uninhabitable.

Our policies also help you affordably meet the liability insurance requirement within most leases. We offer a simplified process for renters to purchase insurance, with minimal underwriting questions. In fact, you can purchase a policy in less than five minutes. Protect yourself, your belongings and your peace of mind with Assurant renters insurance.

Flood Insurance

Flooding can occur after just a few inches of rain, and the average residential flood claim costs more than $38,000. You can protect your home with federal flood insurance from Assurant. With agents in all 50 states, we administer flood policies on behalf of the federal government and underwrite policies based on FEMA/NFIP regulations.

If you ever need to file a claim, our agents have the experience to guide you through the process as simply as possible. In your most challenging time, we re there to make sure you re both protected and supported.

Manufactured Housing

Mobile homes can be more vulnerable to damage than other housing. Assurant s manufactured housing insurance is a comprehensive physical damage and liability program. It s designed to protect your manufactured home and its contents. The policy covers direct, sudden or accidental loss or damage.

We offer competitive rates and a simplified application process, with minimal underwriting questions. We also offer a fast, easy claims process. Assurant can help provide the security you need when it comes to your manufactured home.

Lender-Placed Insurance

Lender-placed insurance is a safety net for homeowners and mortgage lenders.

If your homeowner s insurance lapses or is cancelled, a lender-placed policy ensures you re still protected. Whether fire, severe weather or other misfortune, lender-placed insurance policies typically cover repairs and the replacement cost of the home, not just the unpaid mortgage balance.

As the nation s leader in lender-placed insurance, Assurant understands how important it is to safeguard your home at all times.

Disaster Mortgage Insurance

When a disaster strikes, the last thing you want to worry about is how you re going to make your mortgage payment. An unforeseeable event such as a flood, fire, hurricane, windstorm or job loss can happen. First Protector mortgage insurance coverage through Assurant can help you plan ahead.

With coverage offered in most states, First Protector is a supplemental homeowner s insurance program that provides coverage that s typically not included in a traditional homeowner s policy. We ll be there to help protect your financial well-being and further safeguard your home.

Gluten-Free/Casein-Free Diets for Autism

Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are developmental disorders that affect children by disrupting their ability to communicate and interact socially. To reduce a child’s symptoms of autism. parents often try alternative treatments such as specialized diets. Lately, the gluten-free/casein -free diet has grown in popularity. Some parents report improvements in autism symptoms with this dietary regimen.

Little research has been done, though, on the gluten-free/casein -free diet for autism. Consequently, many parents wonder whether this diet really does, in fact, make a difference in the symptoms of children with autism. Some also believe that children with autism restrict their own intake, because they prefer bland food like white bread. Thus the question becomes “Chicken or egg.” Is the gluten causing the autism, or, more likely, is the autism limiting the child’s variety of food intake?

What is a gluten-free/casein-free diet for autism?

A gluten-free/casein -free diet is also known as the GFCF diet. It is one of several alternative treatments for children with autism. When following this strict elimination diet, all foods containing gluten ( found in wheat, barley and rye) and casein ( found in milk and dairy products) are removed from the child’s daily food intake.

Some parents of children with autism believe their children are allergic or sensitive to the components found in these foods. Some seek allergy testing for confirmation. Yet, even when no allergy is confirmed, many parents of autistic children still choose to offer the GFCF diet. Among the benefits they report are changes in speech and behavior.

How does a gluten-free/casein-free diet for autism work?

The benefit of a gluten-free/casein-free diet is based on the theory that children with autism may have an allergy or high sensitivity to foods containing gluten or casein. Children with autism, according to the theory, process peptides and proteins in foods containing gluten and casein differently than other people do. Hypothetically, this difference in processing may exacerbate autistic symptoms. Some believe that the brain treats these proteins like false opiate-like chemicals. The reaction to these chemicals, they say, leads a child to act in a certain way. The idea behind the use of the diet is to reduce symptoms and improve social and cognitive behaviors and speech.


There may be some scientific merit to the reasoning behind a gluten-free/casein-free diet. Researchers have found abnormal levels of peptides in bodily fluids of some people who have symptoms of autism. Still, the effectiveness of a GFCF diet for autism has not been supported by medical research; in fact, a review of recent and past studies concluded there is a lack of scientific evidence to say whether this diet can be helpful or not.

Unfortunately, eliminating all sources of gluten and casein is so difficult that conducting randomized clinical trials in children may prove to be very difficult.

Which foods contain gluten?

Gluten is a mix of various proteins found in the seeds of several grains such as barley, rye, and wheat. A huge number of foods contain gluten. Gluten provides structure or binding to baked products. While it’s quite difficult to avoid gluten, many stores, particularly natural food stores, display foods in a gluten-free area of the store. Still, it’s important to read nutrition labels to see if there are additives containing gluten.

When someone is on a gluten-free diet, most bread and grain products are forbidden. Therefore, it is important to make sure that the child (or other person) receives ample fiber, vitamins. and minerals. Supplementation can help make up for the lack of these nutrients when foods containing gluten are eliminated.

Which foods contain casein?

Casein is a protein found in dairy products and other foods containing dairy or lactose. Even foods proclaiming to be dairy-free or lactose-free contain casein. Because many soy products and imitation dairy products also contain casein, it’s important to read labels carefully when following a strict casein free diet.

Because the GFCF diet for autism restricts dairy products, you’ll need to make sure the child’s diet has other good sources of calcium and vitamin D. Both are necessary for strong bones and teeth. Talk with your child’s doctor about fortified foods and/or supplementation to avoid any nutritional deficiencies.

Are there tips for eating at home or eating out on a gluten-free/casein-free diet?

There are a large number of online retailers who specialize in food products for people following the GFCF diet. Some parents make GFCF food in large quantities and freeze portions for a later meal.


Before making the change to a GFCF diet, consult your child’s doctor. A licensed dietitian can educate you about the GFCF diet and help you tailor the diet to your child’s health needs and taste preferences.

In addition, before starting a child with autism on a gluten-free/casein-free diet, beware the hidden sources of gluten. Gluten can be found in fried foods that are dusted in flour, and even in cosmetics. Whole foods such as fruits, vegetables, and nuts may be safe. But avoid using packaged mixes because there may be traces of foods containing gluten that are not listed on the nutrition label.

Some restaurants are now categorized as GFCF-friendly. If you are concerned, ask the manager or server to show you a list of ingredients used in the establishment to make sure its dishes are gluten- and casein-free. Vegetarian/vegan restaurants are accustomed to serving people on special diets and may be more willing to prepare dishes that adhere to the restrictions of a strict GFCF diet.

Lesson 1: Introduction to MS Excel 2016

Excel can be used for a wide variety of purposes such as creating an address book, grocery lists, tracking expenses, creating invoices and bills, accounting, balance checkbooks and other financial accounts, as well as any other purpose that requires a spreadsheet or table.

  • Lesson 2: Navigating Excel 2016

    In this lesson, we’re going to focus on the major elements of Excel 2016 and take a few minutes to become familiar with their purpose.

  • Lesson 3: Worksheets and Workbooks

    Worksheets are stored in workbooks, and workbooks are the files that you actually save.

  • Lesson 4: Entering Information into MS Excel 2016

    Starting to enter information is as simple as clicking on a cell in the spreadsheet and typing, but there are some things that are helpful to know – and that you can do – before you ever type that first letter or number.

  • Lesson 5: Introduction to Working with Cells, Rows, and Columns

    If you want to move data from its original location and relocate it somewhere else, you must cut the data, then paste it somewhere else. You can cut or copy cells, rows, columns, or entire worksheets.

  • Lesson 6: Formatting Data and Cells

    Taking the time to format a worksheet can take it from the black and white page of data and gridlines to something that looks professional and attractive.

  • Lesson 7: Formatting Rows and Columns

    In Excel 2016, the width of a column is determined by how many characters that can be displayed within a cell.

  • Lesson 8: Editing Cells, Rows, Columns, and Worksheets

    Excel 2016 makes creating – and editing – spreadsheets a lot easier because correcting errors is easy mess free.

  • Lesson 9: Introduction to Formulas and Calculations

    If you use spreadsheets to do accounting for a business, track totals, invoice customers, or anything that requires mathematics, Excel’s ability to calculate formulas is going to save you errors and headaches.

  • Lesson 10: Working with Formulas and Functions

    In Excel, a function is a predesigned formula that does a certain calculation. This can make it easier because you don’t have to construct every formula yourself.

  • Lesson 11: Maintaining Worksheets

    It’s important to learn how to maintain your worksheets to help you keep on top of all the information.

  • Lesson 12: The What-If Analysis

    A what-if analysis lets you explore possibilities by entering possible values into the same equation so you can see the possible outcomes in the cells of your spreadsheet.

  • Lesson 13: Adding Images and Graphics

    You’ve already learned how to format a worksheet and enter information into Excel. Now we’re going to show you how to add elements such as graphics and images.

  • Lesson 14: Charts and Diagrams

    Charts and diagrams are tools you can use to visually represent the data in a worksheet.

  • Lesson 15: Creating Data Lists

    A data list or a database table are types of worksheets that aren’t used to calculate values, but to store information, such as names and addresses of clients or perhaps a library of books.

  • Lesson 16: Managing Data

    A form is simply a dialog box that lets you display or enter information one record (or row) at a time. It can also make the information more visually appealing and easier to understand.

  • Lesson 17: Pivot Tables and Pivot Charts

    A pivot table sounds more difficult and confusing than it really is. Most people say they don’t like pivot tables, or they don’t understand them. In truth, they’re not that difficult at all.

  • Lesson 18: Printing Worksheets and Workbooks

    Headers appear at the top of a worksheet. Footers appear at the bottom. Both can contain page numbers, and headers often contain the title of the worksheet and perhaps the date.

  • Lesson 19: Templates

    Templates are worksheets that are already designed for you.

  • Lesson 20: Protecting, Saving, and Sharing Workbooks

    Add protection to worksheets so that they can’t be edited by other people. You can lock cells or an entire worksheet.

    Ricoh unveils solar array to power New Jersey facility, celebrates environmental sustainability


    Ricoh unveils solar array to power New Jersey facility, celebrates environmental sustainability milestones

    MALVERN, Pa. April 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Ricoh USA, Inc. today announced the latest in a series of sustainability milestones, including a new solar array that will power its West Caldwell, N.J. office facility. The array, which is set to provide for more than half of the facility’s electrical needs, literally represents the power of Ricoh’s ongoing sustainability efforts. This is the latest example of Ricoh’s environmental consciousness and measurable progress in sustainability efforts.

    The solar array project began in March 2014. through collaborative work with EnterSolar. a leading New York City -based provider of solar solutions to commercial enterprises. Now live, the array is expected to generate more than 790,000 Kwh per year, providing more than 50 percent of the facility’s electrical needs. That translates to approximately 1.3 million miles driven by an average passenger vehicle, 555 fewer metric tons of CO2 produced per year and $1.9 million in energy savings over the next 10 years. The array itself is roughly 1.3 times the size of a football field.

    “Concern for the environment is in Ricoh’s DNA. It’s core to our corporate identity,” said Donna Venable. Executive Vice President, Human Resources and Deputy General Manager, Shared Services, Ricoh Americas. “Since Ricoh established its Environmental Promotion Group more than 40 years ago, we have worked hard to foster sustainability from the top down and the bottom up. It’s what drove us to undertake this solar array project, it’s what drives our emissions reductions as a global company, and it’s what drives our individual employees to do their part in fostering sustainability through corporate and external programs.”

    In fact, the West Caldwell facility itself has a strong sustainability history. The building has achieved ENERGY STAR® certification for three years in a row, and its on-site Biodiversity-Pollinator Garden achieved Conservation Certification from the Wildlife Habitat Council .

    In addition to these achievements, Ricoh has recently marked several major environmental sustainability milestones, including:

    • Being named ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year for the second year in a row.
    • Committing to using a minimum of 30% renewable energy by 2030 and 100% by 2050, as announced by Ricoh Company Ltd, on April 21, 2017 .
    • Becoming the first Japanese company to join the RE100. a collaborative, global initiative of influential businesses committed to 100% renewable electricity, working to massively increase demand for – and delivery of – renewable energy.
    • Since 2014 :
      • Reducing energy consumption by 6.3 percent.
      • Slashing CO2 emissions by 7 percent.
      • Increasing CO2 reduction contribution by 14.7 percent.
    • Earning the Coalition for Government Procurement’s Green Excellence in Partnership award.
    • Featured in the FTSE4Good Index for 13 years running.

    Ricoh’s Long History of Commitment to Achieving Enhanced Sustainability

    Ricoh has been a dedicated advocate in support of a more sustainable society for decades, having formalized this position with the establishment of its Environmental Promotion Group in 1976.

    Ricoh has strived to achieve balance between Planet (the environment), People (society) and Profit (economic activities). To achieve this, the Ricoh Group plans and pursues actions to reduce the environmental impact on the planet caused by resource extraction, energy use and the release of chemicals. In addition to protecting these valuable natural resources, Ricoh works to foster and preserve biodiversity.

    My wife and I chose Select Solar, to install a photovoltaic (PV) system after lengthy research and talking to other solar installers. What impressed us first was how easy it was to talk with Colin Howe and how knowledgeable he was with the current state of the solar industry. We had two requirements in reducing our electrical cost; find a way to reduce our daily demand and then create supplemental power that we would use in our house and feed back to the local electric grid.

    the order arrived the next day.

    15 Best U #solar #energy, #us #solar #energy #companies, #energy #reserves, #solar


    America s Best Solar Energy Companies

    Solar Energy has gone from a fringe interest of the environmentally aware, to a viable option in new home construction and renovation. More businesses and government entities are also turning towards solar to power self-contained systems to promote energy reserves on site. Here are the best 15 US solar energy companies today. Some of them are very new, and some have been working with solar technology and construction for well over 30 years.

    15 Best U.S. Solar Energy Companies

    1. Verengo Solar – This one has become one of the top 3 residential solar installing companies in the US just based on market share. It has done so well that there is rumor it is now inviting buyers. Focused on the residential market, Verengo Solar reportedly installed over 12,000 solar units in residences since it opened for business. It is considered to be very friendly to those just beginning to explore solar lifestyles, but also scores well with business and commercial accounts too.

    2. SolarCity – Next on the list is another of the largest residential solar installation companies in the US. What really makes SolarCity a standout in the industry is it also has its own manufacturing division. While they mostly work with residences, they also can provide for government and non-profit purchase, leasing and PPA programs as they can manufacture their panels to fit the order. Their installation and financing abilities also help to make SolarCity one of the best companies to choose to get started with solar in your home or business.

    3. Sungevity – This company really makes the grade for being the pioneers in the US industry in solar leasing. They offer leasing and financing, but they are not dependent on each other. The effect of this model is it allowed for Sungevity to expand to offer solar options in underserved areas by promoting satellite distribution and installation companies under their brand logo. Their leasing has been a hit with residential, PPA and business entities; plus their other services have made them a strong and steady presence in the traditional market, including government and non-profit needs.

    4. SunPower – This company has the distinction of being a worldwide leader in solar cell and module manufacturing, as well as a leading installer of solar equipment. It is a US based company, and their primary focus was on developing the residential market. While focused on home solar use, SunPower also has a very strong commercial arm, which places them in the top 3 of the providers and installers in the 48 states for business and government use. Their product line covers everything from small DIY projects, to home conversions, new construction and corporate installations too.

    5. Sunrun – Sunrun is a relative newcomer to the industry, incorporating in 2007. They currently only serve 11 states, but within those states they have now become one of the largest solar installers. They don t do any manufacturing, but they are leasing and installation specialists. Their contracts are evenly divided over residential, commercial and government contracts. They also are one of the first choices for PPA customers and those just beginning to explore solar power.

    6. RGS Energy – RGS Energy is a division of Real Goods Solar. Real Goods Solar is the 5 th largest US residential solar installation company. Their RGS Energy division is their latest innovation to bring their products to more residences, businesses and other PPA customers. They offer both leasing and financing. RGS has been serving customers for over 35 years and are considered one of the pioneers in making solar energy a viable alternative for private homes and businesses.

    7. OneRoof Energy – One of the newer companies on the market, OneRoof Energy. this company was founded in 2011. They neither make nor sell solar modules, panels or components; they are a bespoke lease agent for other companies. The bonus for their companies is this has allowed them to carve out a niche in leased services and components that let companies and residential customers take the best advantage of industry discounts. They can also bring to an under-served area solar access through their negotiated access.

    8. PetersenDean – PetersenDean started in 1984 and have been one of the primary leaders and innovators in the US solar energy market since. They combine roofing services with solar installation. The solar component is a relatively new addition to their divisions, but their longstanding history in the roofing marker has given them the edge on what different markets need to make solar energy viable. They have a high residential service percentage, but also do commercial work and government contracts too.

    9. Vivint Solar – Right on the heels of PetersenDean is Vivint Solar. They don t have a roofing division but have divisions devoted to home security and automation. Like PetersenDean they have launched into the solar market by making the best use of their knowledge of residential and commercial needs. As of 2013, they were ranked 2 nd in the nation as a provider of solar installation. They do installation and lease products, sell components but do no manufacturing of their own. They serve residential, business and government agencies through direct sales, leasing and PPA agreements.

    10. Horizon Solar Power – Horizon is an unusual addition to this list as they are mostly centered on the Southern California area. This area does represent one of the highest ratios of solar energy use in the nation. To that end, they are a leading provider of residential solutions. Their focus is on solar inclusion in rehabs, and in new construction. With their unique price agreements with solar module and component manufacturers, they are also the leading provider of discount panels to residential customers.

    11. Solar World USA – SolarWorld is a solar pioneer, one of the world’s largest solar-technology producers and the largest U.S. solar panel manufacturer for 40 years. In its technology, manufacturing, performance, service and environmental track record, the company is a solar industry leader.

    12. Solar Universe – Headquartered in California, Solar Universe has been providing locally owned and operated solar to neighborhoods across the country since 2008 through their locally owned and operated franchise network. They ve developed a unique solar franchise network which brings energy savings to consumers and businesses through our network of locally owned and operated franchises.

    13. First Solar – First Solar is the global leader in photovoltaic (PV) solar energy solutions. First Solar has developed, financed, engineered, constructed, and currently operates many of the world’s largest grid-connected PV power plants in existence. By integrating technologies, services and expertise across the entire solar value chain, First Solar delivers bankable PV energy solutions that enable a world powered by reliable and affordable solar electricity.

    14. Trinity Solar – Trinity Solar is the leading designer and integrator of solar electric systems in the Northeast. Their mission is to provide high-performing, cost-effective, environmentally responsible solutions to address the energy needs of our customers. Trinity has installed over 7,000 solar power systems, grown to over 350 employees, has become the largest solar provider in the Northeast, and is now one of the top ten solar providers in the nation.

    15. Suniva Suniva is the leading American manufacturer of high-efficiency, cost-competitive PV solar cells and modules. The company is known worldwide for its high-quality solar products, patented low-cost manufacturing technology, and long-term reliable performance. Our ground-breaking manufacturing process ensures the combination of high power and exceptional value in every product we make, while our research milestones continue to set the standard in the global PV marketplace.

    The common thread with all of these US solar energy companies is they have recognized that there are more places solar can be applied than thought before. The new leasing and discount programs make it easier for residences and businesses to incorporate solar energy in their constructions. Rather than think that houses need to be all solar, there is more drive to put solar assistance in place for existing fossil fuel systems.

    Does charcoal whiten your teeth? #teeth #whitening #treatments, #teeth #whitening, #whitened #teeth,


    Does charcoal *really* whiten your teeth?

    Charcoal has quickly become the go-to ingredient to whiten teeth. And if YouTube or Instagram testimonials are anything to go by, the answer to it working is a resounding ‘yes’. But does it really work the miracles that it promises as a natural teeth whitener and is it safe to use? We spoke to dentists Dr Adam Thorne REGENERATE Enamel Science Dental Ambassador and Dr Richard Marques to find out whether charcoal really is an effective teeth whitener and explore whether other natural whitening products actually work.


    How does charcoal actually work?

    The most effective type of charcoal is the activated form. a reheated, oxidised version of the charcoal that you put on the BBQ. The theory is that activated charcoal has an adhesive quality that binds to everything in its path, such as stains, tartar and bacteria, and works by drawing out and absorbing toxins and chemicals into its millions of tiny pores. Dr Thorne says:

    “Activated charcoal’s enormous surface area is dotted with the numerous nooks and crannies that draw in and trap toxic substances including stains on teeth. It can be brushed on or rinsed around the teeth.”

    But by all means don’t use charcoal from the BBQ, the non-activated form, as it can be toxic, warns Dr Marques.

    Women with better oral hygiene live longer, study says

    But does charcoal really whiten teeth and is it safe?

    “Charcoal works and is an effective way to help clean and whiten your teeth. It’s one of my top tips on whitening your teeth at home,” says Dr Marques. He recommends using activated charcoal powder, toothpaste or mouthwash.

    However, some dentists warn against using this method of teeth whitening and say that charcoal may lead to enamel deterioration and tooth erosion. According to Dr Adam, there’s actually no evidence to date that activated charcoal does any good for your teeth.

    “I’d be concerned about the potential damage that the grainy, gritty substance can do to your teeth and gums – and like any abrasive, I’d be worried about the effects on the gums and enamel on the teeth. We simply don’t know about the safety and effectiveness of it. If you want a gleaming white smile, I’d always recommend talking to your dentist first about using traditional whitening toothpaste for surface stains or specific whitening treatments for deeper stains or discolouration.”


    8 myths and facts about natural whitening products

    When it comes to teeth whitening, Brits spend more than 100 million a year on products alone. We all know the usual culprits that stain our teeth, such as smoking, drinking red wine and coffee, but what’s the truth behind natural teeth whitening products?

    1. Strawberries: FACT

    Strawberries have an abundance of a ‘magic’ malic acid, which naturally cleans and whitens the teeth, even though they’re red, advises Dr Marques.

    They do however contain citric acid, which can weaken the surface hardness of your teeth, says Dr Thorne. But the riper the strawberry becomes, the higher the concentration of malic acid compared to the more harmful citric acid. He recommends:

    “So if you use strawberries as a teeth whitener, choose a really ripe strawberry, rub it on your teeth and just like exfoliating the skin, it does remove superficial debris. The malic acid won’t actually break down the stain molecules, but the surface clean gives your teeth a whiter appearance.”

    2. Coconut oil: FACT

    This technique, also known as oil pulling, is likely to lessen the bacterial load in the mouth and has been shown to improve the health of the gums and whiten teeth, says Dr Thorne. “It’s unique because it contains predominantly medium chain fatty acids of which 45 to 50% is auric acid, which has proven anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial effects. Swishing the oil between your teeth can also dislodge and retained food particles.”

    Dr Marques recommends using the oil as a mouthwash for two to three minutes, which will lubricate the teeth and draw out impurities.

    3. Green tea: MYTH

    Green tea will actually stain your teeth, says Dr Thorne.

    “It contains plant compounds, known as tannins, which increase the staining potential. This means it is acidic and will break down the enamel on teeth. Once enamel is broken down, pigmented molecules can attach to your teeth easily, and this, of course, leads to stains.”

    4. Baking soda: FACT

    Baking soda is a natural teeth whitener, says Dr Marques. It can help to whiten teeth through its alkaline cleansing action, and is now included in many toothpastes. He suggests mixing a quarter of a teaspoon of baking soda with water and applying this to your teeth with your toothbrush.

    How to cope with extreme dental anxiety

    5. Salmon: MYTH

    Salmon can’t actually whiten your teeth, although Dr Thorne recommends eating it to keep your teeth healthy. He explains:

    “Salmon is a good ‘white food’ (i.e. it can be eaten after whitening), and it also contains calcium and vitamin D, which is good for healthy teeth and bones.”

    6. Apples: FACT

    Apples, much like strawberries, contain malic acid, and along with their abrasiveness can help to whiten teeth. Dr Thorne says:

    “The mildly acidic nature and stringent quality of apples, combined with their rough, fibre-rich flesh, could help cleansing and brightening of teeth.”

    7. Lemon juice: MYTH AND FACT

    Citrus is cleansing and can help to maintain white teeth, says Dr Marques. But using lemon juice actually isn’t recommended as it’s very damaging to the tooth surface and can lead to increased sensitivity and staining as the enamel is worn away, advises Dr Thorne:

    “Lemon juice has been mixed with baking soda as a home-made whitening paste. But lemon juice is very acidic causing enamel erosion and the baking soda is very abrasive causing tooth wear.”

    8. Cheese: FACT

    Cheese can mechanically clean teeth. as it’s a natural cleanser, says Dr Marques. It has the added bonus of strengthening the tooth enamel and structure due to it being high in calcium. But opt for hard cheeses, such as cheddar, and be careful of blue and soft cheeses, which can cause breath odour, he advises.

    Invoice Factoring -an advance on money due to you from a business


    Invoice Factoring

    Its what your looking for

    What is factoring:

    Invoice factoring is essentially an advance on money / cash due to a business, by means of the sale of the invoices to a bridging company. This is not a loan against invoices but an outright sale of selected invoices ( one or many ) or the full debtors book, to a bridging finance company, but with recourse to the seller of the full invoice value.

    Why use single invoice factoring or selective invoice discounting

    This is a very simple and reasonably quick method (within 2 weeks of receipt of all documents) used by businesses to improve cash flow or working capital as and when needed. There is no lock in period and no penalty for early settlement. You elect to bridge one or a few invoices not the entire debtors book.

    Costs Once

    Once off set up fee of approx 3 % to 5 % depending on the size of the invoice bridging required. Monthly cost of between 4,5 % and 6 %

    Pre-Conditions to Discount Invoices:
    The goods /services must have been delivered / rendered and the customer must have accepted the goods / services with no pending disputes. The company requesting the bridging should be profitable and have a clean credit record.

    Any life that is lost from your hair will be gained again once you use this product. It makes your hair super
    strong.I recommend using it at least once a week! You’re hair will love it! This product is great for
    damaged hair. I have had bad perms and bad die jobs and this product is the only product that revitalizes
    and rejuvenates my hair.

    Carolyn A Germantown MD

    Wow, my hair is softer without having any greasy or oily residue on it, and a friend of mine told me yesterday that it
    even looks healthier. It feels smoother, too. The good thing is that it doesn’t leave my hair all greasy and caked up with
    stuff. I have to use moisturizer daily and it works really good on my two strand twists. Can’t really say enough about this
    one. Try it. U’ll like it.

    Barbara B Lebanon IN

    This product is amazing! It makes my hair feel great and it does it with no residue. I recommend this
    product to Patricia L Brooklyn NY

    LOVE THIS STUFF. It is awesome. You should see my hair. The shine is unbelievable and I’ve had several people at
    work tell me how GREAT my hair looks. I went to my sister’s birthday party and everyone raved about my hair. Love

    Lindria D Edgewater MD

    We’re not born with damaged hair.

    As children, we had beautiful, baby-soft, insanely shiny hair.
    But as we got older, many of us began subjecting our hair to
    a lot of abuse.

    Alcohol-based hair sprays, chemical processes, blow dryers,
    and styling irons all cause tremendous damage.

    But don’t reach for a hair conditioner full of synthetic
    chemicals just yet.

    The last thing that you need to do is add any more chemicals
    to your hair! Instead, nourish it with intense nutritive
    conditioners like jojoba and sesame seed oil.

    Essential oils like ylang ylang, rosemary, and lavender will restore your hair’s luster and prevent premature hair loss.

    But be warned – hair this gorgeous can be addictive! Don’t blame us if you get caught touching your hair all day.

    The results have been
    fantastic. My hair is
    super healthy with shine
    and very managable. This
    is one of the best hair
    products I have ever
    used. It is fast, effective,
    and gets the desired
    results! It is easy to use
    and leaves your hair
    really soft and nice. It
    has a pleasant scent.
    Recommend to everyone!

    This is amazing. It made my
    fine, mega-highlighted

    shiny and silky – gave me
    some of the best hair days
    in recent memory! If you
    have fine hair I wouldn’t
    put it on the roots – it will
    weigh you down a bit. I try
    to start about 3-4 inches
    away from the scalp and
    this way I still have volume,
    plus amazing shine!

    Mary K Lebanon TN

    SO awesome! It works
    and you can use it once
    or twice a week and the
    results last. It has
    repaired the damage I
    had. I love how smooth
    and shiny it makes my
    hair. My hair looks
    healthy, gorgeous and
    feels great!

    something all nutritive could
    be this great! Thanks

    I was very impressed by
    the products, especially
    the leave in conditioner.
    I’ve been using this
    product for the past 3
    months and can say my
    hair is in much better
    condition. I absolutely
    love the smell and the
    way it makes my hair
    feel. Worked even better
    on my daughter’s thick,
    nutritive hair.

    Cathy E Cape Coral FL

    After using the treatment it
    was an immediate
    transformation. My hair is
    revitalized. Not only do your
    new products not make my
    scalp itch, but the itching of
    my scalp that I had been
    having no matter what I
    used-or didn’t use-is totally

    Exercises can help women’s pelvic floor health during pregnancy and after birth. COLLATERAL/

    For millions of women, childbirth is a somewhat daunting yet thoroughly rewarding process. In the western world, many years of medical research and professional experience mean that women have access to expert care before, during and after birth. However, there is still one matter that is not being addressed enough during pregnancy: pelvic floor health. Women often do not realise, and are not properly informed, that something can be done to reduce the risks of pelvic floor problems in pregnancy and after childbirth.

    The pelvic floor muscles lie across the base of the pelvis, supporting and holding the bladder, uterus and bowel in position. They also help to control the bladder and bowel. Pregnancy and childbirth can cause problems such as weakness, overstretching and tears in the pelvic floor muscle, due to increased pressure.

    Weakening or damage may result in inability to control bladder or bowel movements, resulting in incontinence. Muscle weakness can also contribute to pelvic organ prolapse. which is the bulging of one or more of the pelvic organs, such as the uterus, bowel and bladder, into the vagina.

    Urinary incontinence is a common problem, affecting over 5m women in the UK alone. Between 30-50% of women will experience some leaking of urine during or after pregnancy. And, according to one study, up to three out of four women still experience symptoms 12 years after giving birth .

    Incontinence can make women feel shame and embarrassment. which stops them from seeking help. It is normalised in UK society, with many women believing that incontinence is an unavoidable consequence of having children, further stopping them from accessing treatment. They are exposed to media images of female incontinence as normal and inevitable: young women are portrayed as accepting the condition in adverts for absorbent products, accompanied by tag lines such as “Oops moments happen. C’est la vie .”

    Prevention rather than treatment

    When women do seek help for pelvic floor problems they are offered treatment according to the severity of their symptoms. Pelvic floor muscle training (PFMT) is a first line treatment. PFMT involves pulling up the pelvic floor muscles by pretending to hold in wee or stopping passing wind. The muscles can be strengthened by regularly doing a series of long and short holds. For example, squeezing these muscles slowly ten times in a row, then doing ten fast squeezes and repeating this three times per day.

    In more severe cases, surgery may be offered, which can include insertion of mesh through the vagina, to provide extra support when repairing weakened or damaged tissue.

    However, vaginal mesh surgery has more problems than benefits. It has been called “barbaric” and recently led to more than 800 women suing the NHS over complications with it such as permanent pain, and an inability to walk, work or have sex.

    So why aren’t we focusing more on women’s pelvic floor health in pregnancy, to try to avoid these conditions developing?

    Evidence shows that PFMT can help prevent and treat incontinence in pregnant women or women who have recently given birth. In fact, research has found that women having their first baby who performed PFMT were about 30% less likely to experience incontinence up to six months after delivery. There is also increasing evidence that PFMT may prevent symptoms of pelvic organ prolapse and could reduce the uptake of further treatment.

    UK guidelines for antenatal care recommend midwives offer information about pelvic floor exercises at a pregnant woman’s first appointment. However, for PFMT to be effective it needs to be delivered through a structured, supervised training programme. Simply giving out information on its own is rarely enough to support people to carry on exercising long term.

    Women have reported that the information they received about PFMT in pregnancy was insufficient. and they weren’t told about the importance of pelvic floor health. They did not understand why they had to do the exercises or how to do them correctly. The information was not clearly linked to the role of the muscles in reducing the risk of incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse so many women did not think PFMT was worth doing.

    Evidently, more could and should be done to improve the quality and delivery of PFMT information during the antenatal period. Incontinence and prolapse do not need to be taboo, but nor should they be normalised as part of the consequences of childbirth and pregnancy.

    PFMT during pregnancy presents an opportunity to prevent long-term, debilitating pelvic health problems and may reduce the need for further medical or surgical intervention. But for this to happen, women need to understand the benefits, know how to do it and feel that PFMT is realistic and doable in their daily lives.
