a poem by David Hart "Now" by David Hart Let us embark now, you and I, As evening splays out to The blue-black sky. Let us proceed through Particular smooth stoned Streets, To incoherent rowdy Retreats, To white table-clothed Restaurants, To four Star hotels with mints on the pillows, With cherished friends And expound of noble great deeds, And then, To dancing streets that Entice our feet. And indeed this is now This gallant moment in Time. Gales of laughter now Skyrocket through the roof twirling in the warm dark sky, then bounce now down to tickle the tops of our heads. The time is now And always will be. No time for the past. No time for the future. They don't really exist. Now exists. Now will be the moment. Now will always be the moment. Forever, now.

*******www.deluxecomfort****/better-sleep-pillow-order.html Anyone who has suffered an inflamed or torn rotator cuff knows the pain involved. The pain varies in intensity. Sometimes it's a burning sensation. At other times it's a dull ache. It affects the way you move your shoulder. Many patients report that the morning is the worst, especially if you tossed around in sleep then ended up putting pressure on it. What is the best type of rotator cuff pillow to protect your injury during sleep? Is there an affordable option that can help protect your injury while you're deep in slumber? Many doctors don't suggest that you buy a 'rotator cuff pillow' but rather follow a simple sleep routine that you can conform to using the pillows you currently own. Since many patients report that the first few days can be awful when trying to find a comfortable sleeping position, doctors have suggested that patients try sleeping in a recliner chair rather than flat on their back or support the elbow with one or two pillows when lying down so it doesn't slide and fall back against the bed. Sleeping on the side or the stomach is discouraged. If your injury is less severe, you may want to simply place a pillow between the arm and the body when you are sleeping to keep your shoulder stable and immobile. Sometimes the best rotator cuff pillow is a preventative one. Did you know that many rotator cuff injuries are not the result of a one time event? Many of them occur as a result of damage that is incurred over a long period of time. This is often true of people who sleep on their arm. Side sleepers often put a lot of pressure on the shoulder during sleep. This can actually cause rotator cuff injuries. One recommended solution for the best rotator cuff pillow is to purchase a side sleeper pillow. These pillows properly cradle the neck and head, making sure the body maintains proper alignment. It seems like such a small thing to purchase a new pillow, but pillows actually serve very important functions while we sleep. If your body isn't properly aligned, you have a good chance of waking up sore and uncomfortable. A great option for a rotator cuff pillow is a pillow that's made from memory foam. Available at most retail stores and across the internet, memory foam has become a popular trend, praised by both consumers and medical professionals. Since memory foam is made to conform exactly to fit the contours of your individual body, it's easy to see why it's often the physician's top choice for rotator cuff pillow. When choosing a rotator cuff pillow, it's best to keep in mind two things. First, you want to offer support to the shoulder. Second, you want to reduce mobility so that you will decrease the chances of further injury. Talk to your doctor about the best pillow for your individual needs. You'll be surprised and pleased at how much a difference the right pillow and positioning can make.

*******www.deluxecomfort****/better-sleep-pillow-order.html How much thought did you put into purchasing your last pillow? For many of us, it was a quick decision. Perhaps you purchased on the basis of price. Chances are, you didn't get the best quality pillow, and maybe you had to replace it fairly soon. Maybe you purchased it because it was "soft". This is probably the number one reason people choose a particular pillow. Did you know that there are certain pillows for certain sleeping types? Many people don't realize that there are many different choices ranging from back sleeper to side sleeper pillow. Whether you own a back sleeper pillow, a neck pillow, or a side sleeper pillow, choosing your pillow should be an important decision. Did you know you spend about a third of your life sleeping? How would you like to sleep without your pillow? Most of us would find it impossible. Still, is your pillow perfect or does it leave a bit to be desired? For those of us who like to curl up on our sides, a side sleeper pillow is best. Since more than half of the population sleeps in this position, it's understandable while side sleeper pillows are top sellers. Side sleeper pillows actually reduce snoring. People who snore find that turning on their sides makes for fewer snoring episodes and less-obstructed airways. It's even been reported by physicians that those sleeping on side sleeper pillows in this position actually have fewer sinus problems. If you are a side sleeper, you may find yourself uncomfortable at times. You turn, curl onto your side, and you find that your shoulder is in the way. Where should you put it? This turns into a frustrating struggle to get comfortable. Those who don't own side sleeper pillows often try to compensate by squashing their pillow a dozen different ways. People fold the pillows. They roll them up. They sit up, agitated, plumping the pillow. Some people even resort to punching the pillow. The end result is always the same. Your shoulder doesn't quite fit the way it should. Worse yet, people who don't own side sleeper pillows may wake up with a red, sore ear. You shake your head from side to side, feeling a bit out of sorts. That's probably because the bottom line is that buying a pillow isn't just about buying the softest pillow available. A pillow actually has a very important job... to keep your neck and head supported when you sleep while keeping your spine properly aligned. If you're a side sleeper, there's good news. Now you can actually purchase side sleeper pillows that take your sleep style into consideration. These side sleeper pillows are made to fit your body by cradling your head and neck for proper neck and spine alignment. Best of all, it's suited perfectly to your sleep style making it the most comfortable way for you to sleep. For side sleepers who previously thought "a pillow is just a pillow", you'll be astonished at the difference!

*******www.deluxecomfort****/wedge-pillow-order.html About 7 million of men and women in America, generally up to their 40's are suffering from acid reflux, a disease of the digestive system that consists of a backflow of acid from the stomach up to the esophagus, damaging the inner lining of this organ. Usually confused with heartburn, this is actually a symptom of acid reflux that usually happens after meals. Acid reflux becomes a clinical condition when the acid can produce a severe damage on the esophagus. Other consequences of acid reflux are tooth decay, vocal chords damage, and sinus contamination that can lead to asthmatic ailments. acid reflux diseaseThere is also certain confusion with hiatal hernia, which is a dislocation of the stomach through the hiatus (upper part of the stomach) into the chest. This condition gets more severe over time. However, hiatal hernia and acid reflux are not necessarily related. Other symptoms of acid reflux disease along with heartburn, which is a burning feeling behind the breastbone, difficult in swallowing and regurgitation of acid stomach contents into the mouth. Acid reflux disease or Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) as it is also referred is produced due to a transient relaxation of the sphincter or lower end of the esophagus that allows the entrance of foods and liquids into the gullet. Since this is a disease produced by the intake of food and drinks with high content of acids the first recommendation from your doctor will be avoiding as possible these foods and drinks, lying down after eating, wearing tight clothes, and doing straining activities as bending over and sleeping over a wedge pillow that elevates your head, shoulders and chest to make gravity work preventing the acid flux gets up to your esophagus and have that acid taste and heartburn in your mouth when you wake up the next day. Unfortunately there is no definite cure for acid reflux disease, so it depends much on your diligence and perseverance on following the heartburn prevention recommendations of your physician, which are basically changes in your lifestyle, especially in your nutrition habits. Invasive acid reflux treatments include acid reflux surgery or fundoplication and the consumption of proton pump inhibitors (PPI) to block acid secretion. Using wedge pillows is what gastroenterologists called 'positional therapy', used to moderate the symptoms of acid reflux, which usually get acute at night time. According to this therapy, it is necessary to elevate your upper body and not your head only.

*******www.deluxecomfort****/better-sleep-pillow-order.html If you have ever seen a memory foam pillow, you probably weren't able to resist the urge to reach out and touch it. You've seen the advertisements. A person places their hand firmly in the center of the pillow. The hand is moved away, and you look down at the pillow and see a perfectly shaped handprint lingering. The idea of a memory foam pillow is an intriguing one, and this new bedding product has literally taken the world by storm. If you've never heard of memory foam pillows, they get their name from the fact that they are rumored to remember where your body part had been on the pillow. This means when you lay your head onto your pillow at night, the memory foam pillow actually moves and shifts, perfectly conforming to the contours of your body. Many consumers have embraced the idea of buying a memory foam pillow simply because it takes the guesswork out of the entire process of pillow buying. While doctors had previously warned consumers on the importance of buying the proper pillow, things have now changed. For example, people who slept on their stomachs had been advised to buy softer pillows. People who slept on their backs were warned that the best choice would be firmer pillows. All of this advice was given in an effort to help patients make choices that would be conducive to the best spine and neck alignment during sleep. With memory foam pillows, however, one pillow fits all. By this, I mean that different sleep types do not require different pillows. You won't have to stroll down the bedding aisle in your local department store, picking up pillows and squashing them between both hands to test their firmness. Since memory foam pillows conform to fit your body, they are suited for each and every person. In addition to helping with spine alignment, these memory foam pillows have been praised by doctors and patients with persistent problems. Many people who have in the past had constant neck and back pain reported a disappearance or a real decrease in their problematic symptoms. This is due mostly in part to the fact that their spine is being properly positioned during sleep, decreasing strain on muscles. Patients who have had problems with snoring have also sung the praises of memory foam pillows. Although some people have called memory foam a 'miracle', it's really not miraculous, but it's certainly understandable that proper alignment and proper opening of air passageways could contribute to less snoring and a better night's sleep. If you've never tried memory foam pillows, purchasing one might be a good investment. With models ranging from fairly inexpensive to quite pricey, there are many varieties of memory foam pillows. If you're not sure which one is best, talk to a sales associate and inquire about which pillows have been the most popular buys. If the pillow helps you enjoy a better night's sleep, it will be well worth the small monetary investment.

Two Dutch survivors of the recent K2 avalanche got airlifted to a hospital in Pakistan Monday. One other Italian climber reportedly arrived at basecamp Tuesday and will be airlifted once the weather clears. An ice avalache hit the world’s second highest mountain on Friday after 17 climbers from different international expeditions reached the K2 peak together. The avalanche hit at about 5-miles up in the ‘Dead Zone’, taking down the safety ropes meant for the mountain descent. The death toll is currently marked at 11 people. Many climbers consider the K2 to be a more technically challenging summit than the world’s tallest peak, Mount Everest. This is the deadliest event on K2 since 1985 when 13 of 27 climbers reportedly died after reaching the top of the mountain. A Los Angeles plot of land reached more than 800-degrees on Friday, causing local firefighters and geologists to survey the 2-acre area north of Fillmore. One theory is that the land is an active landslide that over the past 60-years has trapped particles found in oil products deep in the ground and after the land dried out, oxygen got to the particles and caused combustion. Firefighters got the 800-plus-degree temperature reading after noticing smoke rising through 5-different cracks in the ground. The land is owned by the government and no equipment or buildings exist on it. The ground is now reportedly cooling off and it is not a threat to public safety. This area has recorded extremely high-temperatures several times since 1987. And there’s another extra fee to fly the blue skies. JetBlue Airways announced Monday that it will start charging for travel pillows and blankets on flights 2-hours and longer. With a 7-dollar price tag for both, the company said this kit is for keeps. The carrier stated that the pillow and blanket fabric was developed by CleanBrands and it’s eco-friendly, meaning that it blocks dust mites, pollen, mold spores, and dander. Also in the kit is a 5-dollar coupon to Bed, Bath & Beyond. This kit is the most recent addition to the a-la-carte menu offered by the company to balance increased fuel prices. JetBlue said last month that it expects to earn about 40-million-dollars this year when flyers dish out extra money for a little extra leg room, plus 20-million-bucks for the 15-dollar-fee for a second checked bag, and the company plans to bring in about 50-million-dollars from ticket-change fees.

Imagine leaving a window open all winter long -- the heat loss, cold drafts and wasted energy! If your home has a folding pull-down attic stair, a whole house fan, a fireplace or clothes dryer, that may be just what is occurring in your home every day. Drafts from these often overlooked holes waste energy and cost you big in the form of higher energy bills. Drafts are the largest source of heating and cooling loss in the home. Drafts occur through the small cracks around doors, windows, pipes, etc. Most homeowners are well aware of the benefits that caulk and weatherstripping provide to minimize energy loss and drafts. But what can you do about drafts from the four largest “holes” in your home -- the folding attic stair, the whole house fan, the fireplace and the clothes dryer? Here are some tips and techniques that can easily, quickly and inexpensively seal and insulate these holes. Attic Stairs When attic stairs are installed, a large hole (approximately 10 square feet) is created in your ceiling. The ceiling and insulation that were there have to be removed, leaving only a thin, unsealed, sheet of plywood. Your attic space is ventilated directly to the outdoors. In the winter, the attic space can be very cold, and in the summer it can be very hot. And what is separating your conditioned house from your unconditioned attic? That thin sheet of plywood. Often a gap can be observed around the perimeter of the attic door. Try this yourself: at night, turn on the attic light and shut the attic stairway door -- do you see any light coming through? If you do, heated and air-conditioned air is leaking out of these large gaps in your home 24-hours a day. This is like leaving a window or skylight open all year ‘round. An easy, low-cost solution to this problem is to add an insulated attic stair cover. An attic stair cover seals the stairs, stopping drafts and energy loss. Add the desired amount of insulation over the cover to restore the insulation removed from the ceiling. Whole House Fans and Air Conditioning Vents Much like attic stairs above, when whole house fans are installed, a large hole (up to 16 square feet or larger) is created in your ceiling. The ceiling and insulation that were there have to be removed, leaving only the drafty ceiling shutter between you and the outdoors. An easy, low-cost solution to this problem is to add a whole house fan shutter seal. Made from white textured flexible insulation, the shutter seal is installed over the ceiling shutter, secured with Velcro, and trimmed to fit. The shutter seal can also be used to seal and insulate air conditioning vents, and is easily removed when desired. Fireplaces Over 100 million homes, in North America are constructed with wood or gas burning fireplaces. Unfortunately there are negative side effects that the fireplace brings to a home, especially during the winter heating season. Fireplaces are energy losers. Researchers have studied this to determine the amount of heat loss through a fireplace, and the results are amazing. One research study showed that an open damper on an unused fireplace in a well-insulated house can raise overall heating-energy consumption by 30 percent. A recent study showed that for many consumers, their heating bills may be more than $500 higher per winter due to the drafts and wasted energy caused by fireplaces. Why does a home with a fireplace have higher energy bills? Your chimney is an opening that leads directly outdoors -- just like an open window. Even if the damper is shut, it is not airtight. Glass doors don’t stop the drafts either. The fireplace is like a giant straw sucking your expensive heated or air-conditioned air right out of your house! An easy, low-cost solution to this problem is to add a Fireplace Plug to your fireplace. Available from Battic Door, a company known for their energy conservation products, the Fireplace Plug is an inflatable pillow that seals the fireplace damper, eliminating drafts, odors, and noise. The pillow is removed whenever the fireplace is used, then reinserted after. Clothes Dryer Exhaust Ducts In many homes, the room with the clothes dryer is the coldest room in the house. Your clothes dryer is connected to an exhaust duct that is open to the outdoors. In the winter, cold drafts in through the duct, through your dryer and into your house. Dryer vents use a sheet-metal flapper to try to reduce these drafts. This is very primitive technology that does not provide a positive seal to stop the drafts. Compounding the problem is that over time, lint clogs the flapper valve causing it to stay open. An easy, low-cost solution to this problem is to add a dryer vent seal. This will reduce unwanted drafts, and also keeps out pests, bees and rodents. The vent will remain closed unless the dryer is in use. When the dryer is in use, a floating shuttle rises to allow warm air, lint and moisture to escape.
