Organic Health Food Real Or Paying For a Fancy Name

Organic Health Food has of late become such a catchphrase that it has entered the language of the common or garden Yank to almost day-to-day use. It is a note of which many folks believe they know the meaning, but few do.

1 or 2 seconds of hard speculation produces a myriad of questions: what’s unique about organic food vs the garden-variety superstore wares? And what about organic baby food? Is it seriously different or superior? What are the benefits? Am I able to trust the labels? Below run some regularly asked questions and non-permanent answers, just doing my part to help in your education what’s unique about organic food vs the garden-variety superstore wares? Essentially the differences on your plate occur in two spheres : additions and chemicals.

The prior can imply anything that changes the standard of the food in color, consistency, taste and marks. The 2nd is anything that keeps food fresh for longer amounts of time and is sometimes some variety of sodium product. As the northern US diet is dangerously high in sodium, there’s not any need for the consumption of further salts as chemicals. On the farm level, the differences become even more dramatic.

And what about organic baby food? Is it noticeably different or superior? Organic baby food boasts all the same benefits as regular organic food spotted above. Since baby’s body is loads more fragile to poisons than is an adult’s, the benefits of avoiding additions increase noticeably. Disposing of additions and chemicals in organic baby food also quite essentially suggests that there are less ingredients to which baby may develop allergies and that digestion of organic baby food is easier. Organic baby food is quick-cooked so that less nutriments will be lost, an unlucky derivative of cooking food typically. This is going to be reduced by making your own or feeding baby more iron-rich food. What are the benefits? Well, this is the selling point of organic product. Less poisons in your diet mean avoidance of certain commercial maladies.

Organic ingredients give the possibility for the average consumer to grasp exactly what they are eating. And, when you have experienced this phenomenon, you’re unlikely to take a look at non-organic food labels the same way again. Am I able to trust the labels? This one is troublesome. Just as there are zillions of lobbyists and worried citizen action groups, there are zillions of company employees and counsels finding tactics around existing law.

Simple research helps a lot to slash through the claims and counterclaims. For example, if a baby food label is marked chicken, this suggests that chicken must comprise as little as forty percent of the ingredients’ total mass. If two ingredients are listed, the initial need only make up ten percent and in the second less is acceptable. If it is full of flash, oily promotional guarantees and a deficit of solid data, become suspicious.

How PBL Is Changing Education

How Project Based Learning Units are Changing the Way Our Students Are Taught

Many educational instructors firmly believe that what once worked in the classroom a decade ago – or longer – doesn’t necessarily have the same effect on the learning environment in today’s classroom. Times have changed, and researchers are finding the contemporary educational institutions and students require something added to the classroom in order to make their educational experience more relevant to today’s world.

Why Should Things Change?

Students should no longer be required to only take notes and memorize a certain amount of information provided during a learning session. Such almost ‘mindless’ learning doesn’t necessarily prepare them for post-graduation responsibilities, nor does it adequately prepare them for real-world work and situations. This is why project based learning is used more frequently as a resource for teaching our kids valuable information and lessons, as well as to help better prepare them for life after high school as functioning adults in a work environment.

Why PBL?

Although project based and problem based learning has been around since the time of Aristotle, modern project based learning came about in the 1960’s by a team of colleagues in medical school at McMaster University. These colleagues were observing how frustrated medical students were during their first few years of study, and how they really weren’t engaged in their work. In order to change the usual method of learning, project based learning was introduced to help these students become much more interested, engaged, and involved in their projects.

Students involved in project based learning were placed in small groups where their collaborative and team efforts require them to come up with a solution to the problem they were assigned. This type of platform provided students with the opportunity to work cooperatively as a team, practice their critical thinking skills, and essentially become problem solvers.

These valuable skills are vital in the real world.

Students in elementary and secondary schools can also benefit greatly with PBL in the classroom in many ways, including developing:

  • High-level communication skills
  • Information retrieval skills
  • Idea generation – Imagination – Brain Storming
  • Critical thinking skills
  • The ability to apply new information
  • The ability to use information gathered to arrive at a solution to the problem
  • Collaboration skills
  • Presentation experience

How Teachers Are Affected by PBL

For teachers, no longer are they simply dictators of information to the students, but facilitators and guides. No longer are they simply standing in front of the classroom hoping that at least some of the students are paying attention. With the advent of project based learning units, teachers take on a role as mentors and facilitators, which allows them to suggest resources, direct progress and watch progress. As teachers see their students become more engaged and interested in their work, their jobs become that much more rewarding.

For teachers interested in learning more about project based learning, they can visit the PBL Superstore and learn more about the history, benefits and results. PBL is also ideal for homeschooled students. Since preparing, testing and grading projects can be overwhelming; teachers may want to access ready-made units that they can implement into their classroom right away. The PBL Superstore has ready to download projects for grades K-10. Research shows that introducing project based learning sparks engagement in students, and many schools have now made PBL a core part of the curriculum.

Personal Change and the Importance of Goals In Overcoming Sex or Porn Addiction

There is an old Cornish Proverb that says ‘Those who will not be ruled by the rudder must be ruled by the rock”. This is in reference to the strands of Cornwall England where so many ships were run aground or wrecked in the middle ages because they failed to navigate the passageways to get their ships safely to shore. The application to us is that if we do not listen to reason and or take control of our lives then we must suffer the consequences of just going wherever life takes us.

There is another way that this Proverb can read and that is “Those who will not be ruled by the rutter must be ruled by the rock”. What? You might say? Did I spell it wrong? Actually no and let me explain why. The word “rudder” means the vertical blade at the stern of a vessel that can be turned to guide the direction of the ship. The word “rutter” is actually a more little known word that most do not know. The word “rutter” as defined by dictionary.com as

“A descriptive atlas of the Middle Ages, giving sailing directions and providing charts showing rhumb lines and the location of ports and various coastal features.”

We may also want to define “rhumb” while we are at it: “A curve on the surface of a sphere that cuts all meridians at the same angle. It is the path taken by a vessel or aircraft that maintains a constant compass direction”.

A ship that is ruled by a “rudder” is one that is ruled by a physical or fairly rudimentary device that all ships have – they just don’t build them without them and if they did no one would buy them. The “rudder’ needs to be operated by someone to affect the ships direction and that “operator” needs to have the knowledge of “where” and “how” to turn the vessel to guide it safely to its destination.

The “rutter” really is the key to guiding the ship or vessel safely to its destination because the “rutter” or map is one that has a cumulative knowledge of those who have gone before on the same voyage and have recorded where the “rocks” and dangerous areas are and gives exact directions on the safest route to take to get to the desired destination. The “rutter” also directs the operator to the proper course to maintain a “constant compass direction”, which is important if you want to get to your destination in a timely manner and not be wandering all over the ocean!

The wisdom in this analogy is that unless we want to wander through life without a direction, a map, or “a rutter” of where we want to go then we will either never accomplish anything of any significance or the more dangerous consequence of this mind set is that we will be thrown mercilessly into the “rocks” of life and suffer greater loss, damage, death, or disease from failing to direct our lives in a safe and more desired direction!

Another famous quote to interject at this point would be:

“For all sad words of tongue and pen, The saddest are these, ‘It might have been’.” John Greenleaf Whittier quotes (American Writer, 1807-1892)

To look back on our life and see love, accomplishment, success, family, friends, and wonderful memories will fill us with satisfaction and happiness. To look back on a life filled with addiction will fill us with hollow, unsatisfying, emptiness.

Goals are the key difference between these two drastically different outcomes. By designing your own personal “Rutter” to guide your life as well as following the paths to good destinations that others have forged will help anyone who is struggling with addiction or the way their life is going to change their final outcome from one of misery to one of joy, satisfaction, and happiness!
