For those struggling with substance abuse, finding a path back to sobriety can be a monumental task. There are many avenues to explore that may provide the help and assistance needed to return to a healthy lifestyle. 

Classes and Groupwork

Many people receive a wake-up call when law enforcement becomes involved. Whether it be for charges related to operating while under the influence or bad choices made while using, a court date is an opportunity to begin recovery. Offenders often are required to attend court ordered classes in an effort to educate them about why their behavior is destructive to themselves and others. Another option after the initial work is complete is to be present at group meetings on a regular basis. Sharing experiences with those who are in similar situations may be educational and reduce the anxiety that comes with attempting to live clean.

Movement and Exercise

Becoming more active benefits all of the body’s systems and can help distract the mind from returning to self-destructive thoughts. A good rule of thumb when beginning a fitness regimen is to create a schedule and stick to it. Routine is an essential element for recovering addicts. When participating in daily workouts, studies have shown that aerobic activity decreases the effects of mild to moderate depression. This is important in that it defends against relapse due to the desperation and bleakness addicts experience when detoxing. 

Plan Healthy Meals

What is put into the body is just as important as what is abstained from. A diet that contains a balanced amount of vegetables, fiber and protein is essential while on the road to good health. A body ravaged by chemical abuse may need help with digestion, so pay attention to fiber intake. Foods that contain this staple will also be chock-full of prebiotics. These are necessary to feed the probiotics already working in the digestive tract. A correct amount of both will ensure that material moves efficiently through the gut, and critical nutrients are absorbed.

A horse is a horse, of course, right? The mammalian ancestor of today’s beautiful, majestic horses first appeared in the Eocene Epoch, or 55.8 million to 33.9 million years ago. Through the millennia of horse evolution and horses’ relationships with the world and humans, these strong, noble animals have developed unique mannerisms, personalities, and habits. Here are 8 fun and bizarre facts about horses.

1. Big Eyes

horses have big eyes

The big, beautiful eyes of horses are unique among land-dwelling mammals. Horses have the biggest eyes of any mammal living on land.

2. Horse Laughs

Horses have a special technique called “flehmen” for improving their sense of smell. If horses look like they are laughing, they are in fact engaging in this enhancement activity to better determine the nature of a scent.

3. Total Teeth

Male and female horses have different numbers of teeth. Male horses have 40 teeth, while females have 36.

4. Hooves and Nails

The protein that makes up horse hooves is the same as what makes up human fingernails and hair.

5. Sleep Habits

When horses are ready to rest, they can sleep either lying down or standing up. Just to make sure all is well, however, some horse owners buy coverage. Affordable horse insurance cost makes it possible to insure horses without breaking the bank.

6. Run Like the Wind

Generally, horses gallop around 27 miles per hour or 44 kilometers per hour. The fastest horse sprint recorded is 55 miles per hour or 88 kilometers per hour.

7. Great View

It is difficult to sneak something by a horse. Horses can see almost 360 degrees because their eyes are on the sides of their heads.

8. Loyal Look-Outs

Even if all the other horses in a group lie down, one horse always stays awake to quickly warn the others of possible threats.

Wonderful, Dignified, and Gracious

Horses have helped humans for millennia, even facing personal danger to carry soldiers onto battlefields. These horsey habits and many more show that horses are one-of-a-kind creatures. They are intelligent, complex, and magnificent, no matter what they are doing.

Kedarnath Yatra is undoubtedly one of the most awaited pilgrimages of the year for devout Hindus from all over the world.

the toughest treks in the world

People from far and wide flock together to pay their respect to Shiv here who is worshipped as Kedarnath. Surrounded by the snow-capped ranges of the majestic Kedar dome this Dham is also one of the most ancient and significant one with its creation dating back to centuries ago most probably by the Pandavas making it a significant place of worship. Visiting Kedarnath by trekking is not an easy job and one should definitely be well prepared before making this journey.

Given below is an informative, updated and the latest travel guide for Kedarnath trekking:

Best Time to Visit

Summer – The month during which the temple Kapat is scheduled to open is when you should go which is either during late April or early may as well as June, July and early august. During this time the temperature can also touch to as high as 25 degree Celsius in the afternoon allowing you to have a comfortable and a pleasant trekking journey.

Winter – If the cold and chilly weather condition is not a problem for you then you can also choose to visit during the post monsoon months i.e. late September, October and till the temple closes for 6 months.

Note – Remember that helicopter services in Kedarnath are suspended for a few days during the rainy season so plan your trip accordingly and keeping in mind the weather.

Opening and Closing Dates.
The opening and closing dates for opening of Kedarnath in 2019 has been decided by the temple committee which are:

–  Opening –9th May 2019 (5:35 am)
–  Closing –29th October 2019

Common Mistakes to Avoid While Trekking

-If you are walking at a normal pace then remember it will take you around 6 to 6.5 hours to cover the 15km distance of trekking journey from Gaurikund to Kedarnath temple. Remember not to rush and walk patiently at a normal steady pace in order to avoid gasping.
-You have an option of starting your trekking journey from Sonprayag itself but you should avoid taking that since it will only 2 to 3 extra hours to your entire trip. You can take a shared jeep for Rs.50/- to Rs.100/- and it will drop you off at Gaurikund form where you will commence your walking.
-You should start your journey really early in the morning so that you are able to reach the temple by noonand complete your Darshan in time.

How to Reach

The roads leading up to Kedarnath isconnected by a series of well-made roads from various cities such as Chandigarh (387 km); Nagpur (1421 km); Rishikesh (189 km) and Delhi (485 km).the final road head is situated in Sonprayag where you will be required to park your cars in the parking area here and then hire a shared jeep heading up to Gaurikund which is the final road leading up to this holy Dham. You will then be trekking for 15 km to 16 km through the undulating terrain here which will be an extremely exhilarating experience.

New Trekking Route Map

After the 2013 disaster that had rocked the entire state of Uttarakhand, the old trekking route which used to make its way via Rambara, was completely destroyed beyond repair. Construction for a new routestarted off immediately which extended the walking distance from 14 km to 16 km. The responsibility for taking care and reconstruction work of this new route is done by the team members of NIM and even a bridge is constructed in Rambara to mark its significance and is also used by the pilgrims. Here is a brief route map for the new trekking journey: Gaurikund – Rambara bridge–Jungle Chatti – Bheembali – Lincholi – Kedarnath base camp – Kedarnath temple

Facilities Available En Route

A huge throng of people take the Kedarnath trekking journey and being one of the most testing pilgrimages in India the government of Uttarakhand has taken care in providing some much needed facilities and amenities. These are made present for the convenience of the pilgrims which include: eateries offering various types of food items including chowmein, maggi and some south Indian food; tea stalls where you can also fill your water bottles; public toilets for the travellers and even some rest stops with a few benches along the way.

Trekking Tips

– Make sure that your entire luggage that you will be carrying during your trekking journey is not heavy otherwise it    will cause hindrance to your plans.
– Remember to get all your check up done beforehand so that you are able to complete the Yatra in an easier manner.
– You will be able to cope with the problem of depleting oxygen content in the air at such a high altitude if you regularly perform pranayama or at least half n hour of physical activity months before the commencement of the journey.
– You should eat only boiled food items en route the trekking journey since the hygiene of the food here is questionable.
– You should first of all invest in a very good pair of walking shoes which will come in handy for walking on the cemented route. Avoid wearing sandals or flip flops which will prove to be extremely difficult.

Badrinath Dham is an important pilgrimage destination both for Hindus and Vaishnavites.

It is a temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu and is the highest of the Chardhams in the Chota Chardham Circuit. Also, it is one among the 108 revered Divya Deshams of the Vaishnavites. For those opting for the Badrinath Yatra Package, this Badrinath dham information repertoire will be a way to satiate their curious minds. Read on to learn more:

Badrinath dham location

Badrinath dham; a shrine of Lord Badrinarayan or Lord Vishnu is located in Uttarakhand’s Chamoli District and in the holy town of Badrinath, set along the river banks of River Alkananda. The town is cradled at an altitude of 3415 meters above the sea level and is nestled under the shadow of the majestic Nilkantha Peak and between the hills Nar & Narayana. The latitude-longitudinal extent of Badrinath 30.73°N 79.48°E

History and Mythology

No proper historical record exists about the temple but there are several tales and few evidences that allude to the temple’s history to some extent. In our ancient Vedic texts, this temple finds a mention and the Vedic references talk about the temple’s existence between 1750 BC and 500 BC. In Vishnu Purana too we come across the references of Badrinath temple. According to puranic tales Dharam had two sons; Nar and Narayana. They were but Lord Vishnu’s incarnations. Nar and Narayana went about looking for an ideal location to build their hermitage. Soon, they came across the location where the temple stands currently and chose it to build their hermitage which later became popular as the Badrinarayan temple.

According to myths, the place where the temple of Badrinath Temple stands now was owned by Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati once upon a time. Lord Vishnu liked the place very much and wanted to make it his own place. So, he tricked Lord Shiva and Parvati out of that place. The story says that one day when Lord Shiva and his consort returned from stroll to their dwelling place, they found a little child crying in front of their dwelling place. That was actually Lord Vishnu in disguise. Goddess Parvati’s motherly instincts were awakened when she saw the crying baby and she picked the baby up readily turning a deaf ear to Lord Shiva’s words of caution. She comforted the baby, fed it and cuddled it. Then after keeping the baby in their house Lord Shiva and Parvati went to bathe in the nearby spring. When they came back, they saw the door locked from within. They lost the possession of their own house to the baby who was but Lord Vishnu in disguise. Thus, Lord Vishnu got the venue of Badrinath to himself. He started his penance at the place and soon established himself as the Badrinarayan.

Some accounts declare that this temple had been a Buddhist monastery before Adi Guru Shankaracharya took it over from the Buddhist monks and converted it into a Hindu shrine dedicated to Lord Vishnu. This incident probably took place around the 8th century. The vibrantly colored frontal façade and the Buddhist vihara style of architecture of Badrinath temple hold testimony to the above fact clearly. It is often said that Adi Shankaracharya took the help of Parmar ruler; Kanak Pal to empty the monastery of the monks. Other historical records say that the shrine of Badrinath was established around the 9th century by Adi Guru Shankaracharya. The temple underwent several renovation works in the 17th as well as 19th centuries. The current temple is said to have been set up by the King of Garhwal.

Nomenclature of Badrinath dham

The nomenclature of Badrinath dham is associated with a legend that tells that as Lord Vishnu sat at the place rapt in deep meditation, he forgot about the harsh environmental cold and forgot about the agonies his body was suffering from. Goddess Lakshmi, his consort however took the best care of him during those difficult times and guarded from the extreme weather conditions by taking the form of a huge Badri Tree. The lord recognized her devotion and gave the region the name of Badrikashram. According to historical records, this place was once upon a time full of berry trees.

The temple

The temple rises to a height of about 50ft and comes with a vibrantly colored façade at the main entrance. The frontal façade is made out of stone and comes with arched windows. The main entrance is an arched gateway and a broad stairway leads up to the main entrance. The temple comes with three distinct chambers; i.e. Garbha griha, Darshan mandap and Sabha mandap. The idol of presiding deity, Lord Badrinarayan along with that of the other Gods and Goddesses of the Hindu pantheon are enshrined within the temple’s garbhagriha. Pilgrims gather in the sabha mandap for prayer. It is a spacious pillared hall. The pillars as well as walls of the hall are adorned with ornate carvings. Apart from the idol of Lord Badrinarayan, the other idols present in the garbha griha include that of Garud, Kuber, Ganesha, Narad, Nar and Narayana. The temple exhibits the typical wooden Garhwali architecture. The sanctum sanatorium has a conical shaped roof atop which sits a tiny cupola consisting in a roof of gold gilt. The idol of Lord Badrinarayan is placed under a canopy of gold symbolizing the Badri Tree.
The temple remains open for the devotees from the month of April until the month of November because beyond November there will be heavy snowfall in the region making travel impossible for the tourists and pilgrims.

The Idol

The idol enshrined in the temple is a shaligram shila or black stone idol rising to a height of 3.3ft. It is a four armed idol with the Lord seated in padmasana or meditative posture. In two of his raised hands, the lord holds a conch and the divine diskette while the other two hands rest on the lord’s crossed legs. According to mythical tales the idol of Lord Badrinath was retrieved by Adi Guru Shankaracharya from the waters of River Alkananda. Lord Badrinath’s idol as enshrined is a self manifested idol of Lord Vishnu.

Puja and Rituals

Special pujas are performed at the Badrinath Temple each day on behalf of the devotees. Every puja ceremony at the temple is to start with a holy dip in Tapt Kund. The morning pujas at the temple include Mahabhishek, Abhishek, Gitapath and Bhagwat Path while the sandhya or evening pujas include Geet Govinda path and Aarti. It is said that Adi Guru Shankaracharya had documented the daily puja vidhis for the Badrinath temple and the same vidhis are being followed at the temple till date. In the temple of Badrinarayan, the pujas and rituals are all performed in presence of devotees. If devotees wish to book special pujas, they can do so by getting in touch with the Badrinath mandir committee and paying an amount of fees.

Every day the rituals at the temple start at around 4.30am with the Abhishek and Mahabhishek puja and end at 9.00pm with the Shayan aarti. The rawal or head priest of the temple performs all the puja and rituals with the assistance of subordinate priests.

Many people believe swimming pool maintenance is all about keeping the water clean and clear looking, but that’s only a small part of it. It’s primarily to keep the swimmers safe and healthy. The water may look clear and clean, but could be harboring dangerous microorganisms (or microbes).

pool bacteria

Many different microbes can hide in swimming pool water that hasn’t been cleaned properly. These also can get into pool components, such as heating, indoor pool ventilation and air conditioning systems, and be transferred to other wet surface areas near the pool, such as restrooms, showers, pool houses, or transfer from the pool to a spa or hot tub.

Fecal Microbes

Feces in pool water from children and adults alike are dangerous to swimmers. Whether diarrhea, contained by a swimsuit or residue remaining from going to the restroom, some microbe-carrying secretions or residue will get into the water. Feces in the swimming pool also can come from animals, especially wildlife and birds.

These microbes carry a high risk of causing illness in swimmers, like these

  • Viruses
    • Adenoviruses can cause the common cold, pink eye, bronchitis, or pneumonia, and intestinal tract infection in children.
    • Hepatitis A infects liver cells and causes inflammation.
    • Noroviruses causes inflammation in the stomach and/or intestines, causing stomach pain, nausea/vomiting, and diarrhea.
    • Enteroviruses may cause only a mild illness, or a more serious inflammation of the linings of the brain, or temporary or permanent paralysis.
  • Bacteria
    • Shigella is an infectious disease with diarrhea, fever, and stomach cramps.
    • coli 0157 is a strain that produces a powerful toxin, causing a severe illness.
  • Protozoa – Giardia or Cryptosporidium are diseases from a parasite living in the intestines.

Non-Fecal Microbes

Non-fecal microbes are typically brought into the pool by either humans or pets:

  • Humans and pets:
    • Body secretions – saliva, urine, sweat, vomit, skin tissue, nose and throat secretions.
    • Hair or fur.
    • Transferring water pollutants by swimming in the ocean and then jumping into a swimming pool.
  • Humans only:
    • Sunscreens and oils.
    • Secretion contaminants from sick people who swim anyway.
    • Cosmetics and hair products.
    • Swimwear and other clothing worn into the pool.
  • Other sources – microbes in dirt and debris from lawns, plants, trees and toys.

Non-fecal microbes cause even more health hazards than from feces:

  • Viruses
    • Molluscipoxvirus is a common skin infection.
    • Papillomavirus causes genital warts and cancer.
    • Adenoviruses is the same as the fecal virus.
  • Bacteria
    • Legionnaires’ disease is a severe pneumonia, often fatal.
    • Pseudomonas cause only minor problems like swimmer’s ear and hot tub rash for healthy individuals; but if the immune system is compromised, they cause very serious – even fatal – infections.
    • Mycobacterium causes serious diseases, such as tuberculosis and leprosy.
    • Staphylococcus aureus is a staph infection, causing anywhere from minor skin infections to life-threatening diseases such as pneumonia and meningitis.
    • Leptospira causes anywhere from minor headaches, muscle pains, and fevers to severe bleeding from the lungs, meningitis, kidney failure, or bleeding into the lungs.
  • Protozoa
    • Naegleria fowleri is an ameba that travels up the nose to the brain, destroying brain tissue and often fatal.
    • Acanthamoeba is a serious infection of the eye, resulting in permanent visual impairment or blindness.
    • Plasmodium causes malaria.
  • Fungi
    • Trichophyton causes infections of the nail, beard, skin and scalp, such as athlete’s foot, ringworm and jock itch.
    • Epidermophyton floccosum causes skin and nail infections.

Proper and frequent pool maintenance is the solution to bacteria of any type. If you do your own, it’s a must to know what you’re doing, to do it often, and not to skimp when you’re not in the mood. Otherwise, a pool cleaning service is your best alternative.

And it’s essential to call in a professional if you ever find a dead animal and/or what may be wildlife feces in your pool, which can be highly dangerous to humans, especially if from a raccoon. A pool cleaning service will safely remove the animal and thoroughly clean the pool of all dangerous bacteria.

Swimmer health and safety is your utmost priority. So, proper and frequent pool maintenance is essential.

Pool Doctor of the Palm Beaches at http://www.poolspalmbeaches.com has offered pool cleaning services for almost 30 years.

Pastor barely save his life after allowing deadly snake to bite him to prove his faith.

Cult with snakes

The controversial American pastor Kodi Kuts almost lost his life when he allowed himself to be bitten by deadly snake in Kentucky during the Mass in Kentucky.

Kuts believes that the venom of the snake can not do anything to him, claiming that he was bitten by the snake six times in life, “but that Jesus saved him.”

During the mass, the Code took a snake, put it around his neck, and started to dance. However, the snake was quickly disturbed, and she bitte pastor´s shoulder, and soon the face and neck.

A bitte in the neck was literally millimeters from the artery, which Kuts would knock out on the spot.

So when he felt he could no longer, and soon afterwards he had collapsed, and was rescued by a quick intervention at a local hospital.

The Christian cult with snakes was once popular in the United States, today only a few states allow such rituals.

Kodi became a pastor with only 23 years because his father passed away from the snake bite during a mass of 2014.

Polish girl Czesława Kwoka, 14, died in 1943 after three months in Auschwitz. In order to create space for the German colony built by the Nazis, many were deported as well as Kwoka along with her mother from her house in southeastern Poland

Upon her arrival in Auschwitz, she had number 26947 tattooed on her shoulder before she was wildly beaten by a female prison guard because she did not understand the orders she was receiving to in German.

They considered her “political prisoner”, and her categorization can be seen in her closed uniform with a red triangle with “P”.

Victim: Czesława Kwoka, 14, presented in Auschwitz at the edge of tears with wounds on her face.

Prisoner Wilhelm Brasse, witness who died in 2012, later found that the guards beat 14-year-old Kwok over the face with a stick.

Speaking in a 2005 documentary, Mr Brasse said: ‘She cried but she could do nothing. Before the photograph was taken, the girl dried her tears and the blood from the cut on her lip.’

Kwoka died in March 1943, only three months after she arrived in Auschwitz, a few weeks after her mother Katarzyna.

Her portrait was featured at the State Museum in Auschwitz-Birkenau.

government

The brave owners in China are the few who have opposed large corporations and have shown that we ‘little” still have strength and loop.

Namely, they opposed to the government of China to sell their home that included a highway project. Over time, the government did not give up on its goal and built a highway around the home of these stubborn owners.
Residents moved later, but the house became a symbol of resistance to developers
