Living in a Big City

by kengo

Thousands of people rush into cities each year. Some come for education. Some come for shopping or sight-seeing. Some come on business. But most of them, attracted by the job opportunities and modern life, come to stay.

There are some advantages for the people living in a big city. First the people who live in a big city can enjoy the miracles of the latest technology of the human being. Most cities have some facilities of popular science. People can go there and understand science knowledge. Second, the big city can provide many conveniences in transportation and traveling for the people who live in the big city. For example, they can travel with the magnetic suspension train whose maximum speed can attain 400 km per hour. They can take the subway to work every day. Another advantage that city people can enjoy is that they can live more convenient and entertaining. There are a lot of supermarkets in the city. When you need something, you could just go and buy them in supermarkets. As for cultural recreations there are many cinemas and concerts halls in the big city.

However living in a big city has some disadvantages. Population and noises, mostly from factories and cars, severely affect people’s health. As hundreds of people rush into big cities, the population of cities has rapidly mounted which results in crowed buses, a lot of traffic jams, many traffic accidents and poor housing conditions. Frequent traffic accidents threaten people’s lives.

People may have many opinions about living in a big city. Some would think city life is too boisterous and roaring, whereas others may enjoy it. It all depends on one’s personal point of view and experiences. As for me, I was born in the big city, and I am used to everything here. So I will choose city life.

I think living in a big city is much more convenient and comfortable because the transportation is very good and you can go anywhere easily and fast. There are lots of big malls, supermarkets, banks, theatres, parks and so on. Every coin has two sides. There is much more pollution and noisy in big city. Too many people make the city crowded.

People enjoy city life chiefly for its conveniences. To begin with, the city provides fast transport, with roads and buses leading to every corner. Then, there are department stores and shops all over the city, where you can buy all kinds of goods you want. Besides, hospitals and other services are all with easy reach. Indeed, whatever you need is, you can easily get what you want.


However, cities are confronted with many problems. One is the housing problem. For example, it is not uncommon for two or even three generations to share an apartment. Another is noisy. Finally, there is the problem of competitive atmosphere. For example, people who have been in the apartment block may well be strangers to each other. In short, the city is only a place for business, to be visited occasionally. It is not an ideal place for permanent residence.

A village is composed of small population that is not advanced whereas a city is very advanced and has large population. Life in a village is completely different from life in a city. This difference is like distinction between earth and sky.

These lifestyles are totally different from each other. It is hard to find similarities between persons of different characteristics and same as with life in villages and cities. Cities are getting more advanced everyday and it has forced people to leave their village pride behind and become more city oriented. City and village life has characteristic that are similar and different.

Village life and city life are somewhat provincial. People can’t think of a life beyond the boundaries of their village or their city. Villagers think that villages are the best place to live, and people living in urban places think that they are more fortunate. There are some similarities between both locations. Children in the villages have their desires and ambitions like city children. They also want to be something in their lives. Villagers, like urban people, are hard workers.

Secrets To Living Longer

by kengo

Which are ways to live longer? Does the gene decide the duration of your life? Being born in a family with history of longevity, you have more possibilities of living longer. But just basing on this, a longer life is not guaranteed completely.


You can start with attitude. Being a positive e thinker can not only impact the quality of your life, but can contribute to how long you can live. In 2002, researchers at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., found that optimistic people decreased their risk of early death by 50 percent compared with those who leaned more towards pessimism.


Also stress can affect the immune system and cause a variety of health issues. You cannot avoid stress in your life, but knowing how to handle the stress and remain positive can help contribute to a longer and healthier life. Did you know that owning a pet can help in handling stress? Rebecca Johnson, a professor of gerontological nursing at the University of Missouri at Columbia, showed that interaction with pets does, in fact, reduce levels of the stress hormone cortisol.


And having a pet may add years to your life. One of the first studies in this arena, which appeared in “Public Health Reports” in 1980, showed that the survival rates of heart attack victims who had a pet were 28 percent higher than those of patients who didn’t have an animal companion. “The health effects seem to be very real and by no means mystical,” says Alan Beck, director of the Center for the Human-Animal Bond at Purdue University. “Contact with companion animals triggers a relaxation response,” he says. Another factor in living longer is not being overweight. Research shows that obesity can lead to medical conditions, including diabetes, heart disease and various cancers. So powerful are certain lifestyle choices that recommended diets along with maintenance of physical activity and appropriate body mass can, over time, reduce the incidence of cancer by 30 percent to 40 percent, according to the American Institute for Cancer Research.


Avoid smoking and eating too much sugar. Both of these weaken the bodies immune system which can contribute to health issues.


Exercising at least 30 minutes a day has shown to strengthen the immune system and may increase your chances of a longer life. And last of all learn how to life each day. Don’t take things so seriously that you are angry and negative as this affects your overall well-being.

Strategies for healthy living

by izqrdo

Do you want to lead a proper life? Many individuals are now interested to move towards a healthier life pushed mainly by the campaigns that are made for a better nutrition. Indeed lots of our current health problems are caused by our wrong diet and may have been prevented if we eat properly. For example by reducing our consumption of meat and rather concentrate on more vegetables, you can definitely reduce the risk of developing some health conditions. The goal of this post is to provide you more details on the changes that you can make and I hope that itâ??ll be useful for you.

Firstly it might be important that you consume some balanced diet. Some of us have a diet that looks like that of wild animals as evidenced by the amount of meat we eat. People can indeed benefit more from the consumption of more vegetables and fruits. This may prevent us from accumulating too much fat within our body and at the same time provide all the nutrients needed for the good working of our body. You can have a look at our French internet site on cuisine () because it carries some useful point.

Eating vegetables and fruits may also help in healing some health conditions. There are lots of individuals who suffer from flatulence and may benefit from altering their diet. In fact flatulence is mainly caused by poor digestion and changes in your diet can certainly be helpful in order to cope with such condition. Definitely reducing your intake of certain food can bring some additional benefits for you personally. Recently I have come across this French article on flatulence () and should be interesting for you to take a look.

If you really enjoy the changes to your diet you can also be interested to share it with your friends and relatives. I have been to some receptions where only healthy food was offered. This can be a good way for you to help your mates by altering their lifestyle. And if you know how to do it properly you may also make some savings on the cost of arranging your reception. In case you require more information about this topic you can take a look at this French article on reception planning () since it features some useful point.

In order to live a proper life then there are some changes that you will have to make to your way of life. And in many instances you simply must make some changes to your eating habit. For example you might like to reduce your consumption of meat and preferably increase your intake of fruits and veggies. Over time youâ??ll really reap the benefits of this change. This post has only supplied a short list of modifications and there are plenty more that you may find by searching on the internet.

You may get more information on the topic placed in the article by having a look at the hyperlinks within the text: organiser une reception, gaz intestinaux, dictionnaire de la cuisine


The Right Living Will Attorney

When it comes time to plan for the later years of life many people put off the decision for much too long. The main purpose of sitting down to do what is usually called succession planning is to make sure ones survivors are provided for in a way that supports a comfortable life after you’re gone.

Such things as housing and income and health care are just a few of the issues that must be prepared for so that the surviving family members can avoid unexpected or unplanned for financial short falls.

It is best to seek a living will attorney to help with this type of planning. The fees are modest, especially when compared with the potential for oversights when dealing with the complicated issues of finances and property and health needs that extend into the distant future.

So the question is, “How do I find a good living trust attorney?” Let’s list a few of the tips that will help with this challenge.

1 – Check with friends and relatives and work mates. You’ll want to get at least three to five names of attorneys. It is vitally important that you are specifically seeking attorneys that specialize and have experience that has been largely focused on preparing Living Trusts. It is important to know that attorneys, like doctors, specialize in specific practices. You wouldn’t seek out an eye surgeon to set a broken leg from a skiing accident. The same rule applies to attorneys. Pay attention.

2 – Now call or email a lawyer’s referral service. Request the names of at least three attorneys that specialize in living trusts.

3 – Once you have hopefully gathered at least five or so names you’ll want to do your pre-interview research. Please make sure you don’t start calling to speak with your list of attorneys before you complete this step. A) Run each of the attorney’s names from your list through the Bar Association’s research files. You’ll be looking for a confirmation of their specialty, which will be registered with the Bar Association. B) You’ll also use this research to determine the attorney’s behavioral records. In the unlikely event an attorney on your list has received even one admonishment, regardless of the nature; eliminate him or her from your list and move on to the next name.


Is Life Really Worth Living?

I know my title is depressing. Yeah, yeah…it REALLY makes you want to read on, doesn’t it? It gives you that warm, fuzzy feeling. Right?

But haven’t you asked that question at some point in your life?

-When death takes someone dear

-When we don’t know how we’re going to pay our bills

-When our children face a life-threatening illness

-When our spouse proclaims they no longer love us

I know I have asked this question more than ever since the death of my father in 2006. It was then that I had to face the void left in my heart by this larger-than-life man. As I stood at his grave and contemplated the fact that, although he brought joy to the lives of many, the memory of his life would fade and life would go on. Even two years later, just last week, as I stood staring at his tombstone, the question lingers and stings me to my core. All his work…his life…his laughter…his ministry…the constant theme of working his fingers to the bone for those he loved…was it worth it? I wish I could ask him.

Or how about the fame and riches of a Michael Jackson? Yesterday was the memorial service following his untimely death. As his soul moves into eternity…was life worth it for him? All the fame and glory, which faded after time…the riches…having the world as his oyster (for a time)…was it worth the scrutiny, the horrible allegations he faced, the constant pressure of being Michael Jackson—was it all worth it?

I mean, even though Michael’s name will go down in history and my father’s won’t-either way-life will go on.

Was it all worth it? The question begs to be answered.

Never before in my life has the book of Ecclesiastes so poignantly echoed in my heart and mind.

“Meaningless, Meaningless” is how the writer describes life. He says it is a “chasing after the wind”. He describes his lifelong pursuit of happiness by seeking knowledge, women, riches, and hard work. Yet, in all these endeavors “happiness” was captured in fleeting moments at best.

His conclusion is that the whole purpose of mankind is to fear God and keep His commands.

Is this depressing? At first, it seems to be. It echoes the sentiments of all those who seek the best that this life has to offer, attain it…..and find it sorely lacking.

It is this reality that has truly evoked in me the realization that scripture is correct; we really are strangers in this world. Never before have I longed so much for Christ to return and take His people home to the place He has prepared for us. Gone are my youthful longings of a long physical life here on earth, filled with fame and glory and maybe some riches thrown in for good measure. No more. Now, I long for a joy that lasts. For that place where my health won’t fail, my energy never fades, and worry will be an obsolete memory of what was. My heart now yearns to be reunited with all those who have gone before me, a reunion that is always joyous and never ends.

For the first time in my life, I have a deep, heartfelt appetite for heaven and I can’t wait to get there.

So, is life really worth it? It is a trickier question than I thought. In some pursuits, it is not. If one is looking for happiness in the externals that life dangles in front of us, I believe it only ends in lonely disappointment. However, if one seeks the inner happiness that can only come by knowing the Lord intimately then we can view temporal riches as just that-temporal-and we can be okay with that. If you earn lots of money, enjoy it, but don’t seek your joy there. If you become famous, stay humble and know that fame can fade quickly. If you seek knowledge, learn all you can and use it to help others-but know that the brain is fragile and our memory can quickly be affected by illness or injury. In other words, enjoy the good things life brings but know that real joy can only come in a relationship with the Divine. Pursue Him and your joy will withstand any changes in this fickle existence we call “life”.

In the meantime, let me offer some places where once can find moments of pure joy, even while we wait on the eternal:

-the hugs and kisses of a child

-the word “daddy” or “mommy”

-seeing a life change for the better and knowing you were part of that

-the bliss of serving others

-holding hands with the person you’re spending your life with

-true friendship

-moments of spiritual connection with others

-knowing you are in the Lord’s will-truly letting Him work in your life

-watching your child learn and grow; seeing them read or swim for the first time

-enjoying grandchildren

I could go on and on. Moments of true joy only come in relationship to God or others. This is where joy shows itself, short of heaven. This is where we build our true legacy. And, honestly…….THESE are the moments when life is truly worth it.

Everything else, in the long run…means very little.

12. The Living Planet – New Worlds

12. The Living Planet – New Worlds Broadcast 12 April 1984, the final instalment surveys those environments that have been created by and for humans. Man has spread to all corners of the globe — not because he has evolved to suit his surroundings, but because he has exploited the adaptations of other animal species. Despite being in existence for 500000 years, it was not until 9000 years ago that man began to create his own habitat, and in Beidha, in Jordan, Attenborough examines the remains of one of the earliest villages. Its inhabitants owned animals, and this domestication spread to Europe, eventually arriving in Britain. Much of the UK’s landscape is man-made: for example, the South Downs were once a forest and the Norfolk Broads are the flooded remains of pits dug 600 years ago. Man also shaped his land by ridding himself of certain species and introducing others. He changed plants by harvesting them: the vast wheat fields of America now constitute a monoculture, where no other species are permitted. The same can be said for cities, which were constructed entirely for man’s benefit. While humans are good at managing unwanted species (such as rats and other vermin), Attenborough argues that man has failed to look after natural resources and highlights the ignorance in assuming that the Earth has an infinite capacity to absorb waste. The now acidic, lifeless lakes of Scandinavia are examples that are “shameful monuments to our carelessness and lack of concern.”

10. The Living Planet – Worlds Apart

10. The Living Planet – Worlds Apart Broadcast 29 March 1984, this episode investigates remote islands and their inhabitants. Some islands are tips of volcanoes; others are coral atolls. Those that colonise them transform into new species with comparative speed. Attenborough visits Aldabra in the Indian Ocean, which is 400 kilometres from the African coast. It has a vast population of sooty terns, which enjoy a degree of protection from predators that is unavailable on the mainland. The giant tortoise has also proliferated, despite the inhospitable nature of the landscape. Many island birds become flightless, including the Aldabran rail and the extinct dodo of Mauritius. Living in such isolation seems to allow some species to outgrow their mainland cousins, and Attenborough observes a group of feeding Komodo dragons at close quarters. The volcanic islands of Hawaii have become rich in vegetation and therefore a multitude of colonists: for example, there are at least 800 species of drosophila that are unique to the area. Polynesians reached Hawaii well over a thousand years ago, and their sea-going culture enabled them to reach many Pacific islands, including Easter Island, where they carved the Moai, and New Zealand: the ancestors of the M?ori. Attenborough highlights the kakapo as a species that was hunted to near-extinction. It is a facet of animal island dwellers that they have developed no means of self-defence, since their only predators are those that have been

Understanding and Living With Fibromyalgia

Understanding and Living With Fibromyalgia

Do you hurt all over? Are you extremely fatigued? These are some of the signs of Fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS). The diagnosis is based on the finding of tender points in specific locations, by the physician.

Fibromyalgia is not well understood by the medical community. It is known, though, that certain people are more at risk of developing fibromyalgia than others. The symptoms of fibromyalgia can include everything from widespread pain to fatigue; menstrual pain to sleep disturbances. Because of the variety of fibromyalgia symptoms, there are a number of associated conditions linked to fibromyalgia.

Since most of FMS symptoms may occur in other conditions, Dr. Carla Ockley, says: “FMS is not always the first thing looked for when a patient walks through the door with pain in his joints.”

Since there is no cure, treatment is aimed at the two major symptoms, which are pain and a lack of sleep. Well, then, can help be found if you think you have FMS? In her book When Muscle Pain Won’t Go Away, Gayle Backstrom suggests contacting the Arthritis Foundation or a rheumatologist.

Sometimes conventional medicine is just not enough to provide you with the relief from fibromyalgia that you need. Fibromyalgia treatment often includes various types of alternative therapy many of which have been proven to be very effective.

To be able to help someone cope with FMS, I feel that we first need to gain knowledge of this disease. Then we can show empathy and understanding with those who are suffering.
