    The Akshaya Patra Foundation was started in June 2000 in Bangalore. This Foundation implements the mid day meal programme with the mission of feeding 5 million children by 2020. It drives all its work towards its vision of -No child in India shall be deprived of education because of hunger-. Though it’s primary cause is to provide mid day meal to Government schools, it emphasises equally on education of the children also. The reason being this it is looking forward to expand its reach to more and more parts of the country.

    Currently, Akshaya Patra is feeding children in 19 locations of 9 States of India. Every day it feeds 1.3 million children in more than 9000 Government schools. This feeding programme has had many positive impacts like increase in school enrolment, improved attendance, improved concentration and performance of children, and decreased school drop-out rate. The mid day meal programme also acts as an incentive for the parents to send their children to school thereby the children of the needy section of the society get an opportunity to get education instead of earning for a square meal. Karnataka NGO works at the grass root level to maximise its reach. It believes in providing -unlimited food for education-.

    The below story is an evidence of the same. The recent Public Examination results explained how food is a vital part of education. With an aim to pursue her career as a doctor, Smruthi D, a student of Anandashrama High School Kotekar, Mangalore took the first step towards her dream by scoring a brilliant 92%. Smruthi’s sincerity towards her dream is evident when she says, -My neighbour is pursuing medicine, I will take guidance from her and work hard to reach my goal.- Smruthi’s mother is elated with her daughter’s scorecard and says, -Smruthi will make my dreams come true even though I could not continue my education as I got married at an early age.- Apart from academics, Smruthi is also a sports enthusiast and loves to play kho-kho and throw ball. Her interest also lies in dancing and even though she has not received any formal training she has participated in many dance programmes.

    An Akshaya Patra beneficiary, Smruthi loves the mid day meal served at her school and says, -I eagerly wait for the lunch time. I like the curd-based menu the best.- She comes from a humble family with her father who works as a driver and mother rolls beedi to supplement the family income. With a smile her mother says, -Just like how my earnings help my family, the mid day meal provided by Akshaya Patra helps our children.- Support many such children. They have the urge to learn and achieve, they just a little support from you.

  • What Is the Caveman Diet

    Comments Off on What Is the Caveman Diet

    For hundreds of thousands of years, mankind has lived off a hunter gatherer diet. We call this diet the caveman diet. Other names for this include the paleo diet or stone age diet. In the last 5000 years, due to the advent of farming and refining of food, the nature of our diet has changed considerably. In particular in the last 50 to 100 years our diets have changed even more so due to modern industrial methods of refining and preserving food. The caveman diet involves eating foods which are more akin to that of our hunter gatherer ancestors.

    The logic behind this is that from an evolutionary point of view you would expect a species to adapt to tolerate and thrive on foods which are readily available from the immediate surroundings. For example cows have lived off grass for a long time and as such have a digestive system which is capable of extracting all of the proper nutrients from grass and a metabolic system which thrives on the nutrients available from grass.

    In the same way our bodies have developed in an environment where the foods available to us included what we could pull out of the ground or off a tree or what we could hunt, cook and eat or fish from the local waterways. Although evolution helps any species to adapt to changes in food sources the process is generally slow. However farming and refining of food has been a dramatic and rapid change which evolution has not had a chance to catch up with. As a result our modern diet of refined wheat, low fat, high carbohydrate and processed foods is a major cause of obesity, ill health, diabetes and many inflammatory diseases.

    There is increasing evidence that switching to a diet that mimics that of our caveman ancestors will help a person to lose weight, improve fitness and avoid many chronic diseases.

    The paleo caveman diet involves modifying our diet and lifestyle to that of our hunter gatherer ancestors. this means making changes not only to your diet but also to your exercise, sleep and stress levels. From the point of view of diet, that means eating lots of lean meat and fresh fish, lots of root vegetables and fruits, and seeds and nuts. It also means avoiding refined sugars and wheat products wherever possible. The paleolithic diet is full of tasty satisfying foods and those who choose to try it experience weight loss, improved energy levels and overall good health.

    A few days later, I was tested the Intel Next Unit of Computing (NUC) that the new board. Even the box is written in Pre-Production Engineering Sample. So still a production example, not yet in production, may not even be sold widely.

    If summarized in a few words, then Intel NUC that I use a small computer with the ability of cayenne pepper for approximately 75% of Server Quad Xeon E31220.

    Desktop Computer Intel NUC is a very, very small. The size is approximately 11cm x 11cm x 4cm so it can be easily handheld hands. May be quite right if called as handheld computers hehehe …

    The outer display is very compact Intel NUC all. It even comes in a hook to stick in the back of a digital TV screen / monitor. Adapter used is ordinary laptop adapter, with a voltage of 19V with 65W power.

    For connection to the outside world, Intel NUC equipped with three USB ports. Two USB 2.0 is being a single USB 3.0 so you can perform high-speed data transfer at all. We can include a USB keyboard and mouse to operate the Intel NUC.

    LAN connector used is Gigabit Ethernet. I check using ethtool this device has the ability to auto negotiation 10Mbps / 100Mbps / 1000Mbps full duplex, so very fast.

    In Intel NUC body mounted Wifi antenna that can be used for a wireless Internet connection to hotspots.

    Gorgeous from Intel NUC is the absence of a VGA connector. That there is a built-in HDMI connector Intel ® High Definition Audio 2 subsystem is configured for 8-channel (7.1) digital audio output via HDMI 1.4a. It means we can use the Digital TV as a monitor with an HDMI connection. For those who still use VGA, can buy a VGA to HDMI adapter and it also goes well.

    Intel NUC has two SO-DIMM slots for 1333/1600MHz memory with a capacity of up to 16GB. Intel NUC coincidence that I am trying to use 8GB of memory.

  • Raw only?

    Comments Off on Raw only?
    March 30, 2017 /  Food

    A diet is considered a raw food diet if it consists of at least 75% raw, uncooked fruits, vegetables, sprouts, etc. Raw and living foods are believed to contain essential food enzymes (living foods contain a higher enzyme content than cooked foods). The cooking process (i.e., heating foods above 116°F) is thought to destroy food enzymes.
    People who follow the raw diet use particular techniques to prepare foods. These include sprouting seeds, grains and beans; soaking nuts and dried fruits; and juicing fruits and vegetables. The only cooking that is allowed is via a dehydrator. This piece of equipment blows hot air through the food but never reaches a temperature higher than 116°F.

    Do you have to follow the regimen that strictly? Of course not. But it’s certainly worth it to incorporate some of these techniques and ideas into your diet. If you tend to snack at work, try taking in carrots or apple slices. Many of the bigger grocery stores now offer packaged vegetables or fruits that make it easier to pack them and take them to work. We’re a nation of convenience, and much of the resistance to healthier eating is that it does generally take a little more effort and time to buy and slice fruits and vegetables. Food retailers have been catching on, slowly, and it’s much easier now to get bags of sliced carrots, celery, apples, nuts and raisins.

    Of course these aren’t necessarily organic foods, and organic is the better way to go, but we think anything raw is infinitely better than cooked, processed food. If you have the time, do buy organic and slice them yourself. But if you’re in a hurry, and nowhere near a natural food store, then don’t beat yourself up or sabotage your efforts because you can’t do this 100% all the time. That’s not realistic. Anything from the fruit and vegetable aisle is going to be better for you than a potato chip, or worse yet, a french fry!

    Finding a suitable family vacation spot that can hold the interest of the kids while giving the parents a chance to rest and relax can be challenging. Virginia Beach offers a bevy of activities to keep children busy while their parents either can join in the fun or watch them from nearby. There are a number of Virginia Beach waterfront hotels that welcome children, which helps to make it a family-friendly resort area. There are a number of family activities that visitors can enjoy during their stay.

    Boogie Boarding Simpler to learn than surfing and more exciting than floating on a raft, boogie boards are a popular means of frolicking in the water in Virginia Beach. Boogie boards float well and are fun for children of all ages. Where swimming is available on the public beaches, boogie boarding is also permitted. Many local shops sell or rent boogie boards. This makes it convenient for those who will only be in town for a day or two and have little use for boogie boards at home to try their hand at the popular water sport.

    Boating Chartering a boat for the day or taking an excursion on one of the many pleasure cruises is a popular activity for families on Virginia Beach vacations. The possibilities for local boating trips include whale and dolphin watching, sightseeing, luncheon parties, deep sea fishing and parasailing.

    Fishing There are several fishing piers in Virginia Beach. They offer a fun opportunity for kids to learn how to fish. Surf fishing is also allowed in designated areas. A unique experience, it is a chance for kids to see the ocean current at work up close while Mom or Dad sit nearby in a chair on the beach. Depending on the catch, it could be an opportunity for a hand-made supper, as well.

    Miniature Golf One family activity synonymous with Virginia Beach vacations is miniature golf. There are a handful of pint-size courses where children can learn the basics of shooting the colored ball through obstacles on little putting greens. This is something that the youngest to the oldest family member will enjoy. It takes little skill to play and is fairly inexpensive.

    Museums It seems like its not a real vacation unless there is at least one cloudy day. What to do? There are a number of museums in Virginia Beach to visit, including the Virginia Marine Science Museum and the Virginia Life Saving Museum. From sting rays to lighthouse lore, the area museums will slip a little bit of local history and science into a vacation without the kids realizing they are learning.

  • How To Scrap A Computer

    Getting cash for computer scrap is one of the easiest ways to make money. Whats the use of leaving your old desktop in the corner to collect dust, when you can scrap it and make some extra cash? Since the inception of computer scrap recycling programs, and programs that offer cash for other types of electronic scrap, thousands of eco-enthusiasts have been praising the cash for electronic scrap industry and recommending the services to friends.

    But what many do not know is that by paying attention to the following steps, hints, and tricks, you can prepare your computer to get scrapped in a way that will guarantee more cash in your pocket. When scrapping computers, volume is a crucial and deciding factor. Before attempting to sell your computer scrap on E-bay and other vendor sites, having at least 5-10 pounds of computer scrap would be in your best interest. That way, these vendors will be more interested in your items and pay you a greater amount.

    Before scrapping a computer, be sure to evaluate the technology and make sure its actually worthless. Usually, working parts within a computer will be worth more than what youll get when selling your computer scrap to a vendor. Everything inside a computer is worth a different amount, because they are each composed of different precious metals. The main components of a computer are the case, disk drives, hard drives, motherboards, CPUs, RAM, PCIs, and power supply. When scrapping a computer, it is important that you can recognize and remove these components without causing damage to the system.

    Remember, quantity is what matters, so amass as many parts of different desktops and laptops as you can before separating the computer scrap into the following categories: 1) Gold Fingers, 2) PCI boards and motherboards, 3) CPUs, and 4) RAM. Each of these categories pays a bit differently, which is why it is important to understand the classification process and criteria qualifications of these categories. By visiting e-scrap websites, doing research, and educating yourself about the technology found within your computers, you will be well on your way to making lots of cash for your electronic scrap.

    While hard drives, computer cases, and disk drives can easily be sold to scrap yards, the other components of a computer should strictly be sold online. Online vendors will usually pay more, but with this convenience and larger payout comes a larger risk. So do your research, read reviews, and protect yourself from greedy online vendors whose main priority is ripping you off.

  • Causes Of Excessive Sweating Eating Spicy Foods

    Every day, about 2.5 percent of people all over the world are worried about the problem of sweating too much. It’s a condition that is experienced by millions of people of different nationalities, gender, lifestyles and ages. Men and women aged between 13 to 62 are still bothered by excessive sweating. The condition is common in puberty and for athletic individuals yes, but there are plenty of people who still sweat buckets while sitting in an airconditioned room attending a board meeting or class.

    This leads us to ask what could be the causes of excessive sweating and what can we do to address the problem?

    As the old saying goes “we are what we eat”. This still holds true in the case of excessive sweating since it has been proven that people who are affected by this condition should do something to change their eating habits. Let me explain: sweating is a natural process wherein the human body flushes out harmful substances or chemicals that we may have ingested. It’s something that happens 24 hours a day and it’s what keeps our bodies from getting poisoned by what we eat- fatty foods, foods laden with preservatives, rich in sugars, high in caffeine. All of these do nothing but worsen the condition of excessive sweating.

    An improper diet and poor eating habits are in fact one of the top causes of excessive sweating in most people. Many don’t realize this,but the more bad stuff we put in our bodies means that our systems have to work overtime in order to flush them out. It is no cause for wonder why the excretory system is producing buckets and buckets of sweat just to try to rid itself of harmful food substances.

    What Foods Should You Avoid?

    After coming to your senses that what you are eating is what’s causing you to sweat profusely you must take the next step of correcting your eating habits. Foods rich in spices not only make you smell bad but they also stimulate the production of tons of sweat. Sweating while eating spicy food means that your body is regulating it’s internal temperature. If you want to look nice on that first date, make sure you do not order the chili or anything spicy for that matter.

    That being said, it would also be wise to cut down on processed foods or preserved goodies. Salts and chemicals used in the preparation or packaging of these foods are also harmful to your body. You would be sweating a lot just to eliminate this from your system, which would again make your problem of excessive sweating more pronounced. If you want to stop the problem of hyperhidrosis the most important thing that you can do is be conscious of the kinds of food you eat.
