without comments

Many of Neurological Disorders have been established for getting a global presence, i.e. they have been traced in all countries and across all races and genders. They are called ‘Common Neurological Disorders’. This includes muscle weakness, paralysis, poor coordination in bodily movement, numbness of loss of sensation and seizures. However, previous to the affected person develops these symptoms, a phase of secondary symptoms can be present. This includes being confused and owning varying levels of consciousness.

However, in terms of worldwide prevalence, the most popular Neurological Disorder is Epilepsy. This brain disorder is generally characterized by the inability to control bodily movements, i.e. a tendency for getting a series of seizures or uncontrolled bodily movements which are caused by abnormal neurological activity. Epileptic patients supply wide variations during the intensity with the seizures.

While some may perhaps suffer from mild seizures that have a tendency to fade-away within minutes with the seizure attack, some are rather serious and can even turn fatal. Seizures usually come in conjunction with other neurological, life-threatening problems like an acute stroke which could render the patient immobile or even induce a cardiac arrest due to its sheer intensity. Epilepsy is considered the most popular of Neurological Disorders because it is largely found in between children. It generally has a childhood initiation period that’s usually called childhood-onset of epilepsy.

Testosterone Gel Supplements for Men

without comments

Testosterone could be the main hormone between males that affects the overall sexual and metabolic health of all men. It’s created from the testicles and plays an critical role from the sexual performance and reproductive health of a male. Testosterone synthesis from the male entire body reduces gradually, i.e. as an individual ages. As soon as testosterone levels dip below a basic, minimum level, Testosterone Supplements are prescribed. This really is done in many forms, for instance pills and injections.

It is typically regarded that testosterone supplements from the form of injections are the fastest acting. This really is due to the fact an injection allows the hormone to be directed to the bloodstream with minimal absorption or uptake time. This really is followed by pills which are bit slower acting than Testosterone Supplement injections. However, the slowest but perhaps, the safest form of testosterone supplementation, is with a Testosterone Gel. These gels are applied in a superficial manner, i.e. they’re applied over the genitals. The absorption of active testosterone here is slowest between all of the stated testosterone supplements as it needs to permeate through the skin previous to reaching the bloodstream.

Further, testosterone supplements from the form of intramuscular injections are rather demanding although applying a gel is rather easy. Most testosterone supplements are obtainable today from the over-the-counter, non-prescription format but searching for a medical opinion previous to utilizing them is really a smarter, safer approach.

There are various kinds of Heart Attack Symptoms, some rather popular and some unusual. One of the most popular of Heart Attack Symptoms include chest discomfort.

Western Movies Worth Seeing

without comments

I thought it might be fun to write about some western movies that are actually worth seeing. I’ve heard it said that the only art forms unique to the USA are the western movie and jazz music. I think some other countries have had a lot of fun MAKING western movies, but the United States does get credit for inventing and creating the genre. Here are a few that are worth watching:

  1. The SearchersThis one is my pick for best western movie ever made. It stars John Wayne, but he’s not the big cuddly Duke you’re used to in this one. He and another guy are searching for some Indians who have kidnapped his niece. But his character, Ethan, is a racist. The movie has more to do with whether or not he’ll find redemption than anything else.
  2. The Tin StarAn unusual and excellent western from director Anthony Man. This one stars Henry Fond and Anthony Perkins. Perkins is the young, untested sheriff, and Fonda plays a cynical bounty hunter who reluctantly takes the Perkins character under his wing.
  3. The Quick and the Dead – This one was made in 1995, making it the newest western on this list. It’s directed by Sam Raimi and stars Sharon Stone, Leonardo Dicaprio, and Gene Hackman. The artistic and stylish direction is the main reason for seeing this, but Gene Hackman’s performance is delightful.

Of course, this only scratches the surface of which western movies are worth seeing.

Discover Card Services

without comments

The Discover Card has now been available since 1985. I remember getting a Discover Card in 1989, when it was still a somewhat new thing to have, and it’s still hard for me to believe that they’ve been around for over 25 years now. How did Discover Card Services get to be such a success story?

No Annual Fee

One of the reasons that Discover Card took off in popularity so quickly was that they never charged an annual fee. Visa and MasterCard both charge annual fees, although in order to compete with Discover, they now have no annual fee credit card options available.

Cashback Bonuses

Discover Card’s biggest selling point has always been their cashback bonuses program, which enables customers to get a certain amount of cash back from every purchase they make. Admittedly, this is a tiny percentage of what you spend, but if you use your Discover Card often and pay off the balance at the end of the month, then it’s a logical way to go about things.

The Future for Discover Card Services

I’m not sure what the future holds for Discover Card Services. They don’t seem to be the ubiquitous brand that they once were, but maybe I’m just out of touch. I know this much. I enjoy my Discover Card, and I don’t plan to use Visa or MasterCard as long as I can still use my Discover Card.

Online Poker News

without comments

On April 15th, when 3 of the biggest online poker websites were shut down, online poker players were left without a whole lot of options when it came to finding large-scale online enterprises where they could meet with thousands of online poker players around the world. The Department of Justice shut down three of the largest sites – Poker Stars, Full Tilt Poker, and Absolute Poker.

However, things are changing with one presidential candidate supporting online poker sites. Gary Johnson, a presidential contender in the Republican party has officially supported online poker by putting a message on his website that says, “Support me for President, and I’ll support your freedom.” This same presidential candidate has gone on record to state that the government should not be restricting lawful commerce that is not harmful to anyone. Gary Johnson was the former governor of New Mexico. The presidential candidate suggests that online poker players should participate in their freedom by donating small sums of money to his presidential campaign. It is certainly a good boost to online poker players’ dreams that they have someone of the caliber of presidential candidate supporting their efforts even if they can’t get enough support for him to elect him to president. Gary Johnson supports prostitution, gambling rights, abortion rights, marijuana, and not going to church, so he is not likely to get enough support for the Republican nomination.

Even though Barack Obama is a keen poker player, that didn’t stop his Department of Justice from shutting down the poker sites.

John Pappas, the executive director of the Poker Players Alliance (PPA) – believes that Jonnson genuinely cares about securing online poker players’ rights, and Johnson realizes that there’s a large voting block out there that believes in his stance on not just poker but other personal issues as well.

Pappas also said that he’s a genuine and down-to-earth guy that talks the talk and walks the walk. This was at a lunch in Washington, D.C. that Johnson had with Pappas and other supporters of online poker. Johnson is serious about taking this issue to Washington, and he is not merely tepidly saying that he likes poker while not supporting it in its online forum as well. Of course, this is a sensitive issue for most Americans as gambling is considered inappropriate for some and a source of valuable entertainment and taxable income for others. Gary Johnson supports the latter view.

1950s Halloween Costume Ideas

without comments

As many rebels and rock and roll icons as there were in the 50s, there were plenty of stuffed-shirt nerds and geeks as well. The “nerdy 50s guy” costume is a classic, and is easy to reproduce at home.

For a nerdy 50s guy, you’ll need to pick up the thickest, ugliest pair of glasses you can find. The stronger the “coke bottle lens” effect on your eyes, the better, and you should put a piece of tape on the bridge of the glasses. His hair would be slicked down rather than back, with a piece of hair sticking up on top or a cowlick on the side. Throw on an ugly bow tie, a pair of plaid pants belted way above the waist, and a too-tight button-down shirt and your 50s nerd costume is complete.

For a nerdy 50s girl, take the Poodle Skirt look to its most innocent extreme. Wear a plain Poodle Skirt hemmed well below the knee, a plain white top, nerdy girl glasses, hair in big ugly braids, and the clunkiest saddle shoes you can find.

Not everybody was cool in the 50s. Dressing up as a 50s nerd is much less predictable than the cool 50s leather guy. You can find more information about 50s costumes here and also here: 1950s costumes.

Playing Games Is Economical

without comments

I love to play games. They’re one of the most efficient ways of spending your entertainment dollar. You can buy a Monopoly game for around $20 or $25 and get hours of entertainment for that expenditure. If you compare that with the cost of going to the movies, then you’ll see that you get a LOT more hours of entertainment for your money. A movie ticket costs $10 nowadays in some markets, so for the price of a single evening at the movies, you can enjoy dozens or hundreds of hours of entertainment playing board games.

It doesn’t matter what kind of personality you have. There’s a board game out there aimed at you. If you like war games, you can play Risk or A Game of Thrones. If you’re the cerebral type, you can play abstract strategy board games like Go or Chess. If you’re a fantasy fan, you can play games Descent, which is similar in theme to Dungeons and Dragons.

Card games are a lot of fun too, and that’s even MORE economical. You can buy a deck of cards for a dollar. And there are hundreds of games you can play with a deck of cards. You can play poker, blackjack, spades, bridge, and rummy. If you’re by yourself, you can play solitaire. Card games are awesome. You can find all kinds of information about card games here: Play Card Games.

Everyone has a computer now, too, and the Internet is loaded with sites where you can play video games for free. It doesn’t matter what kinds of video games you like either. You could play Scrabble on the Internet, or you can play vintage arcade games from the 80s like Galaga. Or heck, if you like slot machines, you can even play online slots.
