Good Morning and have a great weekend

Good Morning and have a  great weekend 
"If you ever feel in life that all doors are closed..
Remember these words- a closed door is not always locked"
Glenn Cunningham - A Story of Determination
by Burt Dubin
The little country schoolhouse was heated by an old-fashioned, pot-bellied coal stove. A eight-year-old boy named Glenn Cunningham had the job of coming to school early each day so that he could use kerosene to start the fire and warm the room before his teacher and his classmates arrived. One cold morning someone mistakenly filled the kerosene container he used with gasoline, and disaster struck.
The class and teacher arrived to find the schoolhouse engulfed in flames. Terrified on realizing that Glenn was inside, they rushed in and managed to drag the unconscious little boy out of the flaming building more dead than alive. He had major burns over the lower half of his body and was taken to a nearby county hospital.
From his bed, the dreadfully burned, semi-conscious little boy faintly heard the doctor talking to his mother. The doctor told his mother that her son would surely die – which was for the best, really – for the terrible fire had devastated the lower half of his body.
But the brave boy didn't want to die. Glenn made up his mind that he would survive. And somehow, to the amazement of the physician, he did survive. Yet when the mortal danger was past, he again heard the doctor and his mother speaking quietly. The mother was told that since the fire had destroyed so much flesh in the lower part of his body, it would almost be better if he had died, since he was doomed to be a lifetime cripple with no use at all of his lower limbs. His mother refused to let the doctors amputate.
Once more this brave little boy made up his mind. He would not be a cripple. He would walk. But unfortunately from the waist down, Glenn had no motor ability. His thin, scarred legs just dangled there, all but lifeless.
Ultimately Glenn was released from the hospital. Every day afterward his mother and father would massage his little legs, but there was no feeling, no control, nothing. Yet his determination that he would walk was as strong as ever.
When he wasn't in bed, he was confined to a wheelchair. One sunny day his mother wheeled him out into the yard to get some fresh air. This day, instead of sitting there, he threw himself from the chair. Glenn pulled himself across the grass, dragging his legs behind him.
He worked his way to the white picket fence bordering their lot. With great effort, he raised himself up on the fence. Then, stake by stake, he began dragging himself along the fence, resolved that he would walk. He started to do this every day until he wore a smooth path all around the yard beside the fence. There was nothing he wanted more than to develop life in those legs.
Ultimately through his daily massages, Glenn's iron persistence and his resolute determination, he did develop the ability first to stand up, then to walk haltingly with help, then to walk by himself – and then miraculously – to run.
Glenn began to run to school. He ran for the sheer joy of running and being able to run. He ran everywhere that he could. The people in his town would often see him run by on his way to who knows where and smile. Later in college Glenn made the track team where his tremendous determination paid off. He eventually received the nickname the "Kansas Flyer."
In February 1934, in New York City's famed Madison Square Garden, this young man who was not expected to survive, who would surely never walk, who could never hope to run – this determined young man, Dr. Glenn Cunningham, ran the mile in four minutes and eight seconds, the world's fastest indoor mile! Later that same year in a prestigious outdoor track meet, he shaved another second off his record to run the world's fastest mile to that time.

Amazing Cucumber!=HEALTH=

The Amazing Cucumber 


This information was in The New York Times several weeks ago as part of their "Spotlight on the Home" series that highlighted creative and fanciful ways to solve common problems.

1. Cucumbers contain most of the vitamins you need every day, just one cucumber contains Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6, Folic Acid, Vitamin C, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium and Zinc.

2. Feeling tired in the afternoon, put down the caffeinated soda and pick up a cucumber. Cucumbers are a good source of B Vitamins and Carbohydrates that can provide that quick pick-me-up that can last for hours.

3. Tired of your bathroom mirror fogging up after a shower? Try rubbing a cucumber slice along the mirror, it will eliminate the fog and provide a soothing, spa-like fragrance.

4. Are grubs and slugs ruining your planting beds? Place a few slices in a small pie tin and your garden will be free of pests all season long. The chemicals in the cucumber react with the aluminum to give off a scent undetectable to humans but drive garden pests crazy and make them flee the area.

5. Looking for a fast and easy way to remove cellulite before going out or to the pool? Try rubbing a slice or two of cucumbers along your problem area for a few minutes, the phytochemicals in the cucumber cause the collagen in your skin to tighten, firming up the outer layer and reducing the visibility of cellulite. Works great on wrinkles too!!!

6. Want to avoid a hangover or terrible headache? Eat a few cucumber slices before going to bed and will wake up refreshed and headache free. Cucumbers contain enough sugar, B vitamins and electrolytes to replenish essential nutrients the body has lost, keeping everything in equilibrium, avoiding both a hangover and headache!!

7. Looking to fight off that afternoon or evening snacking binge? Cucumbers have been used for centuries and often used by European trappers, traders and explores for quick meals to thwart off starvation.

8. Have an important meeting or job interview and you realize that you don't have enough time to polish your shoes? Rub a freshly cut cucumber over the shoe, its chemicals will provide a quick and durable shine that not only looks great but also repels water.

9. Out of WD 40 and need to fix a squeaky hinge? Take a cucumber slice and rub it along the problematic hinge, and voila, the squeak is gone!

10. Stressed out and don't have time for massage, facial or visit to the
spa? Cut up an entire cucumber and place it in a boiling pot of water, the chemicals and nutrients from the cucumber with react with the boiling water and be released in the steam, creating a soothing, relaxing aroma that has been shown to reduce the stress in new mothers and college students during final exams.

11. Just finished a business lunch and realize you don't have gum or mints? Take a slice of cucumber and press it to the roof of your mouth with your tongue for 30 seconds to eliminate bad breath, the phytochemcials will kill the bacteria in your mouth responsible for causing bad breath.

12. Looking for a 'green' way to clean your faucets, sinks or stainless
steel? Take a slice of cucumber and rub it on the surface you want to
clean, not only will it remove years of tarnish and bring back the shine, but it won't leave the streaks and won't harm your fingers or fingernails while you clean.

13. Using a pen and made a mistake? Take the outside of the cucumber and slowly use it to erase the pen writing, also works great on crayons and markers that the kids have used to decorate the walls!!

Pass this along to everybody you know who is

looking for better and safer ways to solve life's

 everyday problems..

World Diabetes Day - 14 November 2012=HEALTHTIP=

World Diabetes Day - 14 November 2012
World Diabetes Day

World Diabetes Day raises global awareness of diabetes - its escalating rates around the world and how to prevent the illness in most cases. Started by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) and WHO, the Day is celebrated on 14 November to mark the birthday of Frederick Banting who, along with Charles Best, was instrumental in the discovery of insulin in 1922, a life-saving treatment for diabetes patients.
WHO estimates that more than 346 million people worldwide have diabetes.

India is home to over 61 million diabetic patients - an increase from 50.8 million last year. By 2030, India's diabetes burden is expected to cross the 100 million mark as against 87 million earlier estimated. The country is also the largest contributor to regional mortality with 983, 000 deaths caused due to diabetes this year.
Every sixth diabetic in the world is an Indian, making the country the world's diabetes capital.
The report says India will be a major driving force for the increase of diabetes in South- East Asia to 8.4 per cent in 2030 from the current seven per cent. This will be mainly because of increasing life expectancy and urbanisation in India.

Diabetes is usually a lifelong (chronic) disease in which there are high levels of sugar in the blood.
There are two major types of diabetes. The causes and risk factors are different for each type:

· Type 1 diabetes can occur at any age, but it is most often diagnosed in children, teens, or young adults. In this disease, the body makes little or no insulin. Daily injections of insulin are needed. The exact cause is unknown.

· Type 2 diabetes makes up most diabetes cases. It most often occurs in adulthood. However, because of high obesity rates, teens and young adults are now being diagnosed with it. Many people with type 2 diabetes do not know they have it.

Gestational diabetes is high blood sugar that develops at any time during pregnancy in a woman who does not have diabetes.

High blood sugar levels can cause several symptoms, including:

· Blurry vision

· Excess thirst

· Fatigue

· Hunger

· Urinating often

· Weight loss

After many years, diabetes can lead to other serious problems:

· One could have eye problems, including trouble seeing (especially at night) and light sensitivity. One could become blind.

· Ones feet and skin can get painful sores and infections. Sometimes, foot or leg may need to be removed.
· Nerves in the body can become damaged, causing pain, tingling, and a loss of feeling.

· Because of nerve damage, one could have problems digesting the food you eat. This can cause trouble going to the bathroom. Nerve damage can also make it harder for men to have an erection.

Blood tests:

· Fasting blood glucose level -- diabetes is diagnosed if it is higher than 126 mg/dL twice. Levels between 100 and 126 mg/dL are called impaired fasting glucose or pre-diabetes. These levels are risk factors for type 2 diabetes.

· Hemoglobin A1c test --

o Normal: Less than 5.7%

o Pre-diabetes: 5.7% - 6.4%

o Diabetes: 6.5% or higher

· Oral glucose tolerance test -- diabetes is diagnosed if glucose level is higher than 200 mg/dL after 2 hours of drinking a glucose drink.

Keeping an ideal body weight and an active lifestyle may prevent type 2 diabetes.

There is no way yet to prevent type 1 diabetes. 

Follow the mentioned tips to lead a healthy and a happy life.

==[] Happy Children’s Day To All []==

==[] Happy Children’s Day To All []==

Visit Us @ www.MumbaiHangOut.Org
Childrens day is a special day for children. Universally, Childrens Day is
celebrated on 20th November, every year. But in India, it is celebrated on 14th November, because it marks the birth anniversary of legendary freedom fighter and independent Indias first Prime Minister  Pundit Jawaharlal Nehru. As a tribute to Nehru
and his love for children, Childrens Day is celebrated on his birth
anniversary. This is a day for each and every one of us, to renew our
commitment to the welfare of children and teach them to live by the
values upheld by their very own Chacha Nehru. He
was fondly referred to as Chacha Nehru by the
children. Children and roses were next to his heart. In fact he started
to wear a rose on his jacket after a child pinned a rose on his jacket.
He often stated that children were like the flowers in a garden and
they should be carefully nurtured. He said the childrens are the
future and foundation of a nation. Every one should keep an eye on the
little joys and sorrows that afflict their precious lives. For Nehru
childrens were little adults in the making. Nehrus concern for
children is well-known, he once said, Our one goal, our bounden
duty, is to gift the future of India  our children  a country filled
with peace and tranquility.

But the fact remains that only a section of the countrys children
actually have an opportunity to celebrate their existence. Schools
organize events and activities that their students thoroughly enjoy,
but there is an entire populace of young ones that are left ignored on
this special day  the downtrodden street children. Instead of
confining our celebrations to schools and clubs and hotels, why not
reach out and make a difference to the lives of children who are not as
privileged as us. While celebrating being a child, the fortunate ones
should be reminded about their good fortune in having all that they are
blessed with, while there are others who can barely feed or cloth
themselves. Thus, while this day was globally instituted to provide
children with Basic Rights, even if we cannot do that on our own, we
can contribute in our own little way. Parties and celebrations happen
all the time but this time let us all try and do something thoughtful for those children who are not as fortunate as us and make them feel special by giving them a small gift or maybe just a simple happy childrens day wish. It will surely bring a smile to their faces and trust me you will feel
very happy with this simple act of yours.
