ACCORDING TO A STORY ISSUED BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS, WEIGHT GAIN, FATIGUE AND CRAVINGS IN WOMEN MAY BE MORE THAN JUST GETTING OLDER Are More than 40 Million Baby Boomer Women at Risk for Diabetes and Heart Disease Because They Aren’t Giving Their Insulin Health a Second Thought? For women, excess weight in the mid-section, frequent fatigue and carbohydrate cravings may be the warning signs of something more serious. A new survey commissioned by the National Women’s Health Resource Center (NWHRC) showed that 75 percent of women ages 40-65 who had not been diagnosed with, but had a family history of diabetes or heart disease reported that they experienced these symptoms. However, nearly one-third (32%) of all respondents did not know they were signs of impaired insulin function, which causes high blood sugar levels and ultimately increases the risk for type 2 diabetes and heart disease. The survey, conducted by Harris Interactive®, also found that 94 percent of women were unaware that low levels of a common essential mineral – chromium – impact insulin function. Only 10 percent reported that their daily diet contains sufficient amounts of chromium recommended by the United States Department of Agriculture. Chromium is an essential mineral that helps manage insulin health the same way calcium helps promote bone health.

November 2006 (Medialink) - Doggie breath might be a sign of a serious health problem. Veterinarians say bad breath could indicate dental disease, which could lead to tooth loss down the road. The sad fact is that by the time they're three years old, most dogs (about 85%) already have some form of tooth and gum disease. But, there is good news. A canine vaccine is now available which aids in the prevention of periodontitis, or tooth and gum disease. The breakthrough vaccine, called Porphyromonas, is the first and only one of its kind. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has granted a conditional license, which means the product has met the requirements for purity, safety and a reasonable expectation of efficacy.

Innovations include Wind Power, Military, and Multi threat Protection WILMINGTON, Del., March 13, 2007 PRNewswire DuPont Nomex, the heat resistant fiber used in products ranging from protective apparel to electrical insulation, marks its 40th anniversary this year, as demand increases for the high performance material and its numerous applications. Nomex is an inherently flame resistant, high temperature fiber that will not melt, drip or support combustion in air. It also delivers outstanding resistance to a broad range of chemicals and is offered in paper, felt, fabric and fiber forms. Nomex brand fiber is used across a diverse range of applications, but it is perhaps best known as a critical component in protective apparel. Today, more than three million firefighters around the world are protected by turnout gear, stationwear and accessories made of Nomex due to its unique combination of flame protection, durability and mobility. Nomex also is used in apparel worn by military pilots and combat vehicle crew; auto racing drivers, pit crew members and track officials; and industrial workers at risk from flash fire and electric arc hazards. Troops in Iraq are being outfitted with Nomex apparel to protect them from burns caused by roadside bombs, one of the greatest threats to American troops. The world is a safer and more energy efficient place as a result of Nomex and its innovative applications. Over four decades, the Nomex brand has become synonymous with safety and protection. We continue to invest aggressively in the development of new Nomex applications to help solve the worlds evolving needs, said William J. Harvey, vice president and general manager DuPont Advanced Fibers Systems. DuPont introduced Nomex in woven and non-woven forms in 1967. While Nomex grew out of fundamental R&D work done by Paul Morgan and Stephanie Kwolek, Wilfred Sweeny unveiled the discoveries leading to the final development of Nomex at the DuPont Experimental Station in Wilmington, Del., the company's global R&D headquarters. Building on the earlier research, Sweeny found a way to make a high molecular weight product that could be spun into a tough crystallizable fiber later named Nomex which possessed outstanding thermal and flame-resistant properties. In 2002, Sweeny was recognized for his contributions with a Lavoisier Medal, the highest honor of science excellence awarded by DuPont. Committed to continuing to deliver innovation and strong customer service, DuPont last year announced a $100 million global expansion plan to increase worldwide capacity for Nomex and support exciting new applications including: Wind Power Expanded Nomex applications, providing solutions for the growing use of wind power in countries like Spain and China DuPont Nomex Limitedwear for Military A lightweight, limited-use garment designed as specified by the military to help protect soldiers from flash fires. Selective Permeable Membrane SPM Technology DuPont is working with the U.S. Army Soldier System Center in Natick, Mass., on new lightweight suits featuring DuPonts SPM technology, which will help protect front line defenders from chemical and biological agents. DuPont Tychem ThermoPro A single garment that combines flash fire and chemical protection. In addition to its use in protective apparel, Nomex brand paper has been providing high performance electrical insulation for motors, transformers and generators for decades. The electrical, mechanical and thermal properties offered by Nomex help extend the life of electrical equipment, as well as reduce premature failures and repairs. Honeycomb of Nomex paper is used for lightweight structural support and helps substantially improve the performance of most commercial aircraft. Nomex paper can also be found in consumer appliances, industrial equipment and transportation equipment such as high speed trains. DuPont is a science based products and services company. Founded in 1802, DuPont puts science to work by creating sustainable solutions essential to a better, safer, healthier life for people everywhere. Operating in more than 70 countries and regions, DuPont offers a wide range of innovative products and services for markets including agriculture and food; building and construction; communications; and transportation.

Lacking a conventional power grid, Tibetan herders and farmers use the sun's energy to power their homes. A $500 donation through the Solar Electric Light Fund (SELF) can buy a complete solar home system for one family: a 50-watt solar module, battery, controller, switch, wiring, and bulbs. The fund is also working to bring electricity to the community, which will ultimately improve its education and health care programs and allow farmers to do their own agricultural processing.

India's population is roughly three times that of the U.S. - and it's only a third of its size. Although overall there is plenty of water in the country, much of it is heavily contaminated with sewage and agricultural runoff. It is estimated that about one in five communicable diseases in India are caused by unsanitary water. explore™ ( is a multimedia organization that documents leaders around the world who have devoted their lives to extraordinary causes.

Before bringing my research about the above mentioned title to your esteemed side I have to explain the reason why I was interested in the subject. According to Islamic sources we read that Prophet Idris(or Andreas) and Prophet Isa(or Jesus)were taken above with their bodies and souls and they are still living there.Were some transportation vehicles used to take them above? Also during the Isra (night journey) our Prophet (S.A.V.) was taken from Mecca to Jerusalem with a vehicle called Buraq and from there on he was taken by an elevator called Mirac and some other vehicles like Refref and the wings of angels.Of course we have to believe again that our prophet(S.A.V.)'s Isra was done with body and soul. In addittion the first 17 verses of the Star Chapter(Surah Necm) are also very interesting saying :" He was on the uppermost horizon firstly, Then he drew near and came down, Till he was two bows length or even nearer,He is nor a liar neither someone who goes astray or his eye did not err. He had seen this before in Sidre MUnteha".The Quran scientists explains him as archangel Gabriel(Cibril A.S.) Saying lastly humans managed to transfer light from one place to another. This was something we thought imaginary when we watched the television serial " Star Trek "years ago where people were transported from one place to another with special machines in seconds.This last invention is a big footstep in science while it is not even a drop of an ocean compared with God's science.Therefore Allah almighty(C.C) might have used such a way to take Jesus or Idris.Here we can end our subject about UFOs. According to Islam the creation is divided into three. The first are angels whose duty is just submission to God and they always do whatever is ordered to them. Second comes jinn who are created for being examined of their faiths just like us humans.Last comes the earthly creatures like humans ,animals,herbs etc. In other words in Islam we do not believe in gray creatures,with three fingers carrying an egg like head on their tiny bodies making crop circles and crashing their UFOs all the time.These are only the characters of Western Spielberg films.Yes including me many people have seen some strange lights in the air but they are all explained by scientists so let's never and ever run after hope exploiters explaining the realities of UFOs. Shall we be able to recognize Jesus and Mahdi?As much as I know only some people with very strong faith will be able to recognize Jesus. Even Mehdi A.S. will not know that he is Mahdi till the last night he is informed by Allah(C.C.).If the names like Dajjal, Mahdi only describe some Conceptions of our day then what would be the signs of their emerging to us ? I would say that Dajjal is Capitalism which cares only for this world. To understand the existence of Mahdi A.S. we are given two clues : Justice and wealth in the world.If we take wealth firstly we see that the ultra high science technology of our day have caused big improvements in agriculture, industry,medicine and civil engineering and reminds us the words of Prophet Mohammed (S.A.V.) saying" Mahdi will come by scattering richness everywhere."I understand from the conception of Justice that every material will be distributed equally among people and problems between humans also will be solved in a just way.I think that wealth and richness will be so much that everybody will begin to pray to God to save his real life after death..The opportunities in our age have made easy for people to buy cars,houses and services of health,communication,education and transportation are getting cheaper and cheaper everyday. Every year 30.000 people in the US only turn to Islam and Rumi the Islamic Sufi's poems sell more than Sheakespeare. According to me Inshallah Allah will complete his light very very soon. Our duty is to thank all the time and ask for Allah's (CC) help with patience and praying and to protect our faith.Instead of being Dajjal's soldiers running after only for the goods of this world we must prefer to be the soldiers of Mahdi by"working for this world as if we shall never die and working for our eternal life as we are going to die tomorrow". Best Regards
