Don't think of them as a treat. Berries should get daily play in your diet -- especially if you’re at all concerned about your blood pressure.Berries for Your Blood Pressure - RealAge Tip of the Day
People with high BP who ate berries daily as part of a study saw a 7-point dip in their systolic blood pressure -- after just 8 weeks of berry love!
Bursting with Goodness
Berries have a lot going for them: They're jam-packed with polyphenols, like flavonols and anthocyanins. Plus, they're loaded with vitamin C, folate, potassium, and fiber. With so much in such a tiny package, it's hardly a surprise that it took just 4 ounces of a berry medley each day to boost the health of the study participants. Not only did their blood pressure go down, but their HDL ("good" cholesterol) went up, too. See if your HDL is high enough with this quiz.
Berry Many Possibilities
The berry medley in the study contained everything from bilberries and lingonberries to strawberries and raspberries, so the juicy possibilities for getting your daily dose are infinite. Given that you can eat berries one by one, they're the perfect alternative to chips when stress calls for some hand-to-mouth action. But when you're ready to experiment, try these fine ideas:

CareFair.com - 7 All-Natural Routes to Better Breathing
With the cost of treating allergies exceeding 7.9 billion dollars, many are looking to more natural treatments than the drugs that leave us feeling strung out or fatigued. Of the many symptoms of allergies, trouble breathing as among the worse. Whether it’s a result of sinus pressure and congestion or even a runny nose, or from congested lungs and a dry, scratchy throat, allergy sufferers are looking for ways to win the war against seasonal allergens. Here are 7 ways to breathe easier during allergy season.
Stinging Nettle. This sounds like a nasty little plant, but it’s quite friendly when it comes to better breathing. Stinging nettle is said to be one of the best remedies for allergic rhinitis, an inflammation of the nasal passages, usually associated with watery nasal discharge and itchy nose and eyes and caused by dust, pollen and pet dander. Take 300 mg of stinging nettle capsules two to four times daily, preventatively three weeks before allergy season and as needed throughout the season.
Zinc is Red Bull for the immune system. 10 – 15 mg a day with a meal will help stabilize your immune system and make you less likely to react or react severely to allergens.
Quercetin (kwer si tin) is something you may already be getting if you eat apples, onions, green leafy veggies, beans and citrus fruits, or if you enjoy a glass of black and green tea, and red wine. This natural antihistamine works like over-the-counter antihistamines but without the synthetic side effects. Quercetin is most effective when it’s taken preventatively beginning one month before your allergy season. Start with 600 mg twice daily.
Omega-3 Fatty Acids found in fish oils are great adversaries to hay fever, sinus infections and asthma. Have 1,000 mg a day with a meal.
Lemon balm is an essential oil that can help soothe and clear sinuses when inhaled properly. Boil a few cups of water, add 5 – 10 drops of oil of lemon balm and transfer to a sturdy bowl. Put a towel over your head and the bowl and breathe deeply. Stay far enough away from the bowl to be safe.
Garlic will not only help you breathe better through your nose, but it will help clear up that nagging cough as well. It is said that chewing a raw clove of garlic will open nasal passages immediately.
Spicy foods , if your stomach can handle them, are very effective because they make your nose run and washes out the allergens. This may seem too simple, but many claim this is a sure-fire way to breathe easy for hours. You don’t need a meal; just take a bite of a hot pepper or a small amount of cayenne pepper sauce.

The $100-A-Day-Rule Prevents Impulse Buying
I like stuff - gadgets, gizmos, and thingamajigs. I also like saving money. So, I’ve created the $100-A-Day-Rule.
For every $100 that I want to spend on the purchase of a new product, I must wait one day before I make the purchase. This creates a self-imposed ‘cooling-off’ period.
If a new gadget costs $100, I have to wait one day until I can purchase the gadget.
If a new gizmo costs $400, I have to wait four days until I can purchase the gizmo.
If a new thingamajig costs $1400, I have to wait two weeks until I can purchase the thingamajig.
I tend to live ‘in-the-moment’, which is just a fancy way to say, I like to impulse buy. In the past, when I wanted something, I just went out and bought it. And, in the past, I’d be stuck with payments, long after the desire for the product had gone away. I once purchased a video game console - because a good buddy had one - and I don’t even like video games. I used my credit card, bought the console, played a few games of Madden, and then never touched it again. A $250 gaming console sat, unused, in my entertainment center, for three years.
Now, when I want something, I use the $100-A-Day-Rule. I spend time researching, looking for cheaper alternatives, and deciding if I really want the item.
Since implementing the $100-A-Day-Rule, I have seen a dramatic reduction in the number of things that I actually want to buy. In fact, in most cases, once I leave the store and get home, I forget why I ever wanted a particular item in the first place. But, if I do find that I still want a particular item, I have built-in system which allows me to take time to do some research and find the item at an affordable price.
At $100-a-day, it would take about 3 1/2 months to decide on whether or not to purchase a $10,000 automobile. 3 1/2 months is long time to ‘cool off’ from ‘new-car fever’. Imagine if every person, when they went to the lot to purchase a new car, were required to wait 3 1/2 months before they could make a purchase? Might we see some dramatic changes in shopping/buying habits?
Side note: As the numbers move higher and higher, the cooling-off period grows longer and longer. There is a point at which the length of time gets a bit ridiculous - shopping 2.5 years for a $200,000 home might drive anyone crazy. So, I’ve capped my cooling-off period at 6 months. If I want/need an expensive item, and I’ve shopped for it for six months, and if it’s in our budget, I go ahead and purchase it.
Here are a few recent examples of how using the $100-A-Day-Rule worked for me:
Wanted: $500 set of golf clubs. Waited: 5 days, purchased a different set for under $300.
Wanted: $1,400 lawn mower. Waited: 14 days, decided not to purchase but to look for alternatives.
Wanted: $1000 HDTV. Waited: 10 days, decided I needed more information, waited additional 2 months, purchased similar HDTV for under $900.
Wanted: $400 driver to match new clubs. Waited: 4 days, decided that my golf game does not merit the purchase of a $400 driver. Heck, my golf game does not merit the purchase of a $40 driver!
Want: A new laptop. Waiting: 10 days, and counting. I want/need a new laptop, so I am spending some time, looking for a good deal on a new laptop. I can’t decide if I want to spend $400 on a cheap model or $1500 on a better system, so I’m using the higher price as my guide and looking at all options.
Final notes: I have found that the MORE I want an item, the LONGER the cooling off period needs to be. I never want to be in the position where I am making a purchase, based on my emotions. So, if I really, really, really want something, I double the time that I have to wait, and then I make my purchase.
Edit: I want to thank JD over at Get Rich Slowly for sharing the story of Joshua, one of his readers, and how Joshua used this technique to avoid a an impulse purchase.

Cause of Bad Breath
Poor oral hygiene is the primary cause of bad breath. It is recommended to take proper care to maintain the health of your teeth and gums in order to avoid bad breath.
Some causes of bad breath are given below:
1) The most important cause of bad breath is left over food particles in the tooth sockets, decaying of which result in bad breath.
2) Insufficient amount of saliva in oral cavity. Saliva keeps the mouth wet and being a natural cleanser, it cleanses the food particles.
3) Bacteria: Bacteria act on the food particle and ensure the cleaning of mouth. The action of bacteria on food particle causes the release of hydrogen sulphide, which is among one of the main contributors to bad breath.
4) Tooth decay and injury of gums: tooth decay and bleeding gums is also a main cause of bad breath. Therefore it is recommended to visit a dentist at least once in two to three months. Prevention and early diagnosis will surely result in cure of bad breath in its early stage. A large numbers of people are affected with this problem that is also clinically known as halitosis.
5) Some foodstuffs can also cause bad breath: Eating pungent food items like garlic can also give bad breath. So it is recommended to avoid garlic and onions or to wash your mouth thoroughly after consuming these items.
6) Smoking and alcohol consumption is also a cause of bad breath.
7) Some serious health hazards, which can result in bad breath, are: ulcers, tonsillitis, dental plaques, Gingivitis, gum retraction, diabetes, dental caries, bio film and salivary gland disease.
If you are suffering from bad breath, you should visit a specialist at the earliest to cure the bad breath. Some people think that only expensive treatments can cure bad breath but this is not correct, if you diagnose the cause in its primary stage than you can cure bad breath naturally.

Don't say this -- and why - CNN.com
(REAL SIMPLE) -- Some things should never be said. Here are some tips on how to avoid putting your foot in your mouth -- and what to use instead.
Don't say: "You look tired."
Why: It implies she doesn't look good.
Instead say: "Is everything OK?" We often blurt the "tired" comment when we get the sense that the other person feels out of sorts. So just ask.
Don't say: "Wow, you've lost a ton of weight!"
Why: To a newly trim person, it might give the impression that she used to look unattractive.
Instead say: "You look fantastic." And leave it at that. If you're curious about how she got so svelte, add, "What's your secret?"
Don't say:: "You look so good for your age."
Why: Anything with a caveat like this is rude. It's saying, "You look great -- compared with other old people. It's amazing you have all your own teeth."
Instead say:"You look great." Real Simple: Easy ways to exit awkward situations
Don't say: "I could never wear that."
Why: It can be misunderstood as a criticism. ("I could never wear that because it's so ugly.")
Instead say: "You look so good in skinny jeans." If you slip, say something like "I could never wear that...because I wasn't blessed with your long legs."
Expert: Clinton Kelly, cohost of the TLC show, "What Not to Wear."
What not to say in the workplace
Don't say:"That's not my job."
Why: If your superior asks you to do something, it is your job.
Instead say: "I'm not sure that should be my priority right now." Then have a conversation with your boss about your responsibilities. Real Simple: How to be nice
Don't say: "This might sound stupid, but..."
Why: Never undermine your ideas by prefacing your remarks with wishy-washy language.
Instead say: What's on your mind. It reinforces your credibility to present your ideas with confidence.
Don't say: "I don't have time to talk to you."
Why: It's plain rude, in person or on the phone.
Instead say: "I'm just finishing something up right now. Can I come by when I've completed this?" Graciously explain why you can't talk now, and suggest catching up at an appointed time later. Let phone calls go to voice mail until you can give callers your undivided attention.
Expert: Suzanne Bates, president and chief executive officer of Bates Communications, an executive-training firm in Wellesley, Massachusetts, and author of "Speak Like a CEO."
What not to say during a job interview
Don't say: "My current boss is horrendous."
Why: It's unprofessional. Your interviewer might wonder when you'd start bad-mouthing her. For all you know, she and your current boss are old pals.
Instead say: "I'm ready for a new challenge" or a similarly positive remark.
Don't say:"Do you think I'd fit in here?"
Why: You're the interviewee, not the interviewer.
Instead say: "What do you enjoy about working here?" By all means ask questions, but prepare ones that demonstrate your genuine interest in the company.
Don't say: "What are the hours like?" or "What's the vacation policy?"
Why: You want to be seen as someone who focuses on getting the job done.
Instead say: "What's the day-to-day like here?" Then, if you've really jumped through every hoop and time off still hasn't been mentioned, say, "Can you tell me about the compensation and benefits package?"
Expert: Mary Mitchell, president of the Mitchell Organization, a corporate-etiquette training firm in Seattle, and author of "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Etiquette."
What not to say about pregnancy and babies
Don't say: "Are you pregnant?"
Why: You ask, she's not, and you feel totally embarrassed for essentially pointing out that she's overweight.
Instead say: "Hello" or "Great to see you" or "You look great." Anything besides "Are you pregnant?" or "What's the due date?" will do. Save yourself the humiliation and never ask.
Don't say: "Do you plan on breast-feeding?"
Why: The issue can be controversial, and she may not want to discuss her decision publicly.
Instead say: Nothing. Unless you're very close, don't ask. If you slip, make up for the blunder by adding, "And do you feel comfortable telling me?"
Don't say: "Were your twins natural?" or "It must have been hard for your child's birth parent to give him up."
Why: You're suggesting that natural conception is better than in vitro fertilization (IVF) or adoption.
Instead say: To a parent of multiples, try a light "Wow, you have your hands full!" To an adoptive parent, say the same stuff you would to any other parent: "She's adorable!" or "How old is he?"
Expert: Kim Hahn, founder and chief executive officer of "Conceive" magazine.
What not to say to a single (or newly single) person
Don't say: "You were too good for him."
Why: You are basically saying she has bad taste. And you'll be embarrassed if they ever patch it up.
Instead say: "His loss!" It gets the same point across without disparaging her judgment. Real Simple: How to express sympathy
Don't say: "I'm glad you got rid of him. I never liked him anyway."
Why: She'll wonder about your fake adoration for him while they were together.
Instead say: "I'm confident you'll find someone who will give you exactly what you want." It focuses on what's to come, not on the dud you're glad she's done with.
Don't say: "How could someone as perfect as you still be single?"
Why: A statement like this comes off as a backhanded compliment. What she hears is "What's wrong with you?"
Instead say: "Seeing anyone?" If she's tight-lipped about her love life, move on to other topics.
Expert: Bethany Marshall, Ph.D., a psychotherapist in Beverly Hills and the author of "Deal Breakers: When to Work On a Relationship and When to Walk Away."
What not to say during a fight with your beloved
Don't say: "You always" or "You never" or "You're a [slob, jerk]" or "You're wrong."Don't say: "If you really loved me, you would..."
Why: Speaking in absolutes like "you always" and "you're wrong" is playing the blame game, and resorting to name calling makes your partner feel helpless, which puts him on the defensive and makes a bad fight worse.
Instead say: "I'm upset that you left the dishes in the sink again. What can we do so that this stops happening?" Starting with the pronoun I puts the focus on how you feel, not why he's in the doghouse, and it will make him more receptive to fixing the problem.
Why: The more you treat your partner as if he'll never satisfy you, the less satisfied you'll be. Controlling your partner by imploring him to do something isn't a good way to build intimacy.
Instead say: "I feel taken for granted when you don't help around the house. I would feel better if we could..." The best way to keep a productive fight from becoming a dirty one is to be clear about why you're upset and then offer a solution.
In regulated markets, disputes are handled by lawyers. In the black market, disputes are handled by guns. I have no love for lawyers, but I'd rather get hit by a stray brief than a stray bullet.Deep Thoughts about the Drug War
The entire philosophy behind SWAT-style drug raids is that the death of a mother, a child, or the family pet is an acceptable risk to prevent flushing.
As anyone who has tried to quit smoking knows, dependence is hardest to overcome during difficult or stressful times. That must be why, when the government helps drug abusers quit, they arrest them and take away their job, possessions, and children.
If I wanted to win the hearts and minds of farmers in Latin America and Afghanistan, I probably wouldn't start by destroying their fields and removing their only hope of feeding their families.
Those massive drug seizures you read about in the paper affect traffickers much the same way a DVD shoplifter affects WalMart -- an annoyance, but part of the normal cost of doing business.
No government in the world can compete with the black market in financial compensation for police officers.
When a government uses military personnel, equipment, and tactics against its own citizens, is it time to call it a Civil War rather than a Drug War?
The drunk driver speeds through the stop sign without seeing it.
The stoned driver stops and patiently waits for it to turn green.
The government is good at job creation. Every arrest of a drug dealer creates a new high-paying job opening.
If you want to bring a community together, hold a pot-luck dinner. If you want to drive it apart, hold a drug war.
Americans are generally pretty brave... although some are apparently terrified of people who listen to Pink Floyd and eat Cheetos.
Even the characters played by Tommy Chong make more sense than most politicians.
Sometimes people say I shouldn't mind being searched if I have nothing to hide. I immediately accuse them of having a swastika tattooed on their genitalia -- if they have nothing to hide, then surely they shouldn't mind dropping their pants to prove me wrong.
There's something horribly, treasonously wrong in a country of the people, by the people and for the people, where the government functions by lying to the people.
The only way to have a drug-free world is to have a people-free world. And even then, the animals will get stoned.
Some days it feels like I'm watching a house on fire. And one idiot wants to put it out with a machine gun. The other one wants to use grenades. And I'm standing there with a bucket of water and they look at me like I'm crazy.
