Type 2 Diabetes – The Effect Of Smoking On The Risk Of Kidney Failure in Diabetes

Researchers at the University of Leicester and the University of Sheffield in the United Kingdom combined thirteen studies on the subject and analyzed the results as if they were one large study of 20,056 participants who had Type 2 diabetes. When the kidneys lose their normal ability to filter blood, albumin a blood […]

Type 2 Diabetes – Loneliness, Depression and Inflammation in Diabetes

According to a study reported on in January of 2019 in the journal Psychophysiology, loneliness affects how people diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes handle stress. Stress has known links to heart disease and death, possibly by affecting the different hormones, the nervous system, and inflammation. It is known people with Type 2 diabetes have difficulty dealing with stress: having diabetes itself puts stress on the body, as does a lack of exercise or excess weight. Researchers at the University College in London, United Kingdom, suspected loneliness could […]

What It Takes To Build An Automated Internet Business

I started out with eBay over 15 years ago and slowly moved over to affiliate marketing. Originally, I was buying and selling and I found an eBook which taught a simple eBay strategy. The buying and selling model was working. But I just wasn’t making much progress. When I bought the eBook it struck me as a simple strategy. The eBook was an automated sale. The owner just set up a listing on eBay and let the listing run. He could sell multiple items through that single […]

A Hotel Is A Hotel, Right?

I recently travelled to another country. And no, not a non-English speaking one, and not one that I had never been to before, that’s a whole other topic for a whole other article. I travelled to England and for the first time ever there, stayed in a hotel and not with relatives or friends. This hotel was in a big city, close to train stations and major attractions, and a beautiful, clean facility. That being said, I did notice some differences from staying in typical North American […]

DIY Upholstery Cleaning Made Easy

Taking care of all the upholstery at home all on your own can seem like quite the daunting task. The modern home sports quite a few furniture pieces, most of which can be spoiled or damaged very easily. This is doubly true for people who share their apartments with flatmates, have small children at home or keep pets. Upholstery tends to be very absorbent in regards to dust, dirt and spills, which can lead to dust build-up and allergies or, to plain and simple, damage to the […]

Type 2 Diabetes – Nerve Damage in the Early Stages of Diabetic Eye Disease

The back of the eye, or retina, has nerve tissue that enables us to see. In Type 2 diabetes high blood sugar levels cause damage to nerve tissue, as well as the blood vessels feeding the tissue. Such damage can thin the retina, which can lead to loss of vision. Until recently diabetic retinopathy, a leading cause of blindness has been thought of as primarily a disease of the blood vessels in the back of the eye or retina. Treatment has been aimed at coagulating weak blood […]

Salem Witch Trials As They Relate to Preppers

When selecting a topic for today’s discussion I decided to choose the subject of the Salem Witch Trials and the active persecution of those women who chose to live outside the norms of the society at that time. Gee people, does that sound a lot like survivalist and preppers? Perhaps we are the next group of people to be persecuted. As we approach this subject we must remember that the original goal of the Puritans as they flocked to the New World was to establish a location […]

Millions ‘worse off’ than 15 years ago

There are over eight million low and middle income households, just under half of which have children. And it is not just poorer households which have been facing a pay squeeze. On average, incomes for all households in 2017/18 increased by just 0.9%, the lowest rise for four years and less than half the average between 1994 and 2007, just before the financial crisis. For the poorest third of households, incomes actually fell by up to £150 in the last year. The Resolution Foundation report said that […]

One more thing re: privacy concerns raised by the DCMS fake new report

A meaty first report by the UK parliamentary committee that’s been running an inquiry into online disinformation since fall 2017, including scrutinizing how people’s personal information was harvested from social media services like Facebook and used for voter profiling and the targeting of campaign ads — and whose chair, Damian Collins — is a member of the UK’s governing Conservative Party, contains one curious omission. Among the many issues the report raises are privacy concerns related to a campaign app developed by a company called uCampaign — which, […]
