Well…Learn something new?

Breastfeeding Mum baby dies after single snake bit 

Hopefully none of you are new parents, but hopefully this will be a learning tool for us all! Apparently not only did a mother die from a snake bite, but she then passed the poison onto her baby through her breast milk.

I’m just having a hard time with how long in-between times was the bite and the feeding of the child?

I or i?

A colleague of mine and I were sitting around during a quiet time and just talking about how we don’t actually know what the I or i, stand for in the products. We then went and looked up what each i or I stands for.

iPhone – I = Internet.

Icentral – I = Information (TAFE)

IT – I = Information (Technology)

iOS – I = iPhone (Operating System)

iPod – I = Internet (Pod)

iPad – I = (Internet Pad)

Wi-Fi – I = Nothing…It is not a word or an acronym. It stands by itself.

I bet you all really wanted to know that one!

I think that I may have mentioned this before. I just feel though I wanted to reiterate. I’ve been so lucky with my birthday recently. I really do feel like taking out toxic people made a very big difference for my birthday this year. Usually my closest ex-friends, let me down. Not only that though I wanted to catch up with people because I’m trying to get more social again. It’s working too =D

Sometimes we just see an article, a song, a quote and it “clicks” and it all makes total sense. Your behaviour, someone else’s.

Have you ever come across something, a quote, a song, article, etc? That just clicked with you? Care to share?

Let’s get to it!

I was going to originally title this post “There is no a cure for anxiety!”

Then I thought though, that sounds like a really harsh topic heading to get this post started on and I do not want to upset people.

I was talking on Facebook…discussing, if you will, about how you can “cure” anxiety with good food, lots of exercising…and I do hate it to say it…There is no cure for anxiety…If there was no one would suffer from it anymore. If there was, trust me, it would be the most popular item on the market and would probably sell out ALL the time.

Saying that though, there are ways to help and make life easier…Too “control” it to a certain extent.

Everybody is different and can learn to control it in different ways for yourself. Myself personally:

  • I do not drink coffee anymore, unless I am 100% certain that I am not headed anywhere. Of course though life is uncertain, especially lately!
  • If I’m having trouble sleeping I use my Atmosphere anxiety app.
  • Meditation is so helpful! Make a “space” for yourself. Even if you have to go out to do it. At least once a week, get a space for yourself.
  • I am aware there are days where I feel vulnerable, so I wont go on places like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc.
  • Then there are other days where I feel like I could fight back.
  • Computer games, for myself, are a GREAT distraction! I have a couple of games that I can lost in for hours and forget for a while. Then because I’m not constantly thinking about whatever is causing myself anxiety. It calms me down. Especially when I have trouble jumping in Guild Wars 2,lol

Some areas of my life have gotten a LOT better.

Something Interesting

One thing I’ve noticed when people want to talk about how Trump is great, they’ll bring the UK into the mix saying how they have gun control, but things like stabbing and rapes are higher in the UK.

Now I can’t dispute that the UK has rapes. I decided to do some research into this…and it turns out that the UK actually have less rapes than the US (well reported ones). So, since it’s extremely easy to find this out…Why do they keep talking about rapes in the UK like it happens more often?

A comparison of Sexual Assault in the US, Canada and England

In this report it explains the circumstances of each of the countries.

Canada has the highest rate of the lesser serious sexual assaults.

The US has the highest rate of the more serious sexual assaults ie rapes.

The UK is lower in both cases for both.

It’s a very interesting report to read because they look at all different types of factors to consider.Not trying to justify rape or sexual assault or anything like that. It’s interesting to look at the culture differences, pay wage caps, family cultures, how POC are treated, how people are treated when they report a rape, etc. The report was written in an American University as well, in Massachusetts.

I started looking mainly because during a discussion about how much Trump has “done” for the common man. One of the people said that the UK has rapes…and that was it…I’m sorry when did Trump stop the rapes in the US?lol…I said “Oh I didn’t realise Trump stopped the rapes in the US”…Then I decided to go and look up what the “statistics” are, and that’s when I found this report.

 

St George Day

(I’m English and I love Anne Stokes)

St George’s Day in England remembers St George, England’s patron saint. The anniversary of his death, which is on April 23, is seen as England’s national day. According to legend, he was a soldier in the Roman army who killed a dragon and saved a princess.
