  • Certain Almonds are Highly Poisonous on Apr 28, 16
    • Processed bitter almonds though can safely be eaten as all the hydrogen cyanide is leached out during the heating process. Due to their toxicity before being processed, in the United States it is illegal to sell bitter almonds that are unrefined.
    • Do your research..! No one has died from eating a few handfuls of raw bitter almonds. The hydrogen cyanide is only release on contact with cancer cells but neutralised by an enzyme on healthy cells. So in effect it can “cure” cancer or at least in less severe cases. The US banned the sale of the almonds for the same reason it has banned raw milk (mostly economical).
  • Fighting Infection: Baby's Immune System on Apr 28, 16
    • Newborn Defenses

       

      We know that a newborn’s immune system is not nearly as effective as an adult’s or even an older child’s, and that it takes many months before a newborn can fight off infection as well as someone whose immune system is fully matured. Nonetheless, you may be pleasantly reassured to know that newborns are much better protected against (or immune to) potential illnesses and diseases than you might otherwise think. This is because during pregnancy, disease-fighting antibodies made in the mother’s immune system are able to make their way across the placenta and into her baby’s body. Fortunately, these antibodies stick around for several months and are able to give newborns an added level of protection from many routine illnesses during this important time when they are not as able to effectively make their own antibodies. However, all good things must come to an end, and infants gradually get less and less benefit from their mothers’ antibodies—that is, unless they are breastfed.

    • The Value of Breast Milk
    • It is because of this significant boost in immunity that breastfed babies have been shown to get sick less often, suffer from fewer ear infections, and experience less severe symptoms when they do get sick.
  • Passive Immunity 101: Will Breast Milk Protect My Baby From Getting Sick? | The Scientific Parent on Apr 28, 16
    • The first way for a baby to acquire immunity is before and just after birth, and it is called passive immunity.
    • “IgG,” and they are the only antibody type that passes through the placenta to the growing fetus.
    • Human babies are born with all of the passive maternal IgG antibodies they will ever have, regardless of their feeding method.

  • Ctrl + v (SendInput ^v) is not working in many applications - Ask for Help - AutoHotkey Community on Apr 26, 16

    • I tried all combinations and all keyboard shortcuts for pasting (SendInput ^v, {vk56}, +{Ins}) and nothing worked. I tried variables and expressions with every combination and nothing worked. Then I tried Send ^v instead SendInput and it is working! And it works with variables and expressions too.

      If I remember correctly SendInput buffer keyboard. Maybe this is the problem.

      • Other benefits to low-carb training

         

        Training on a high-fat, low-carb (HFLC) diet can give you several other advantages.

         
           
        • Fat and cholesterol support your testosterone levels, which leads you to burn more fat. Carbs – especially simple carbs – cause your testosterone to drop [3], making you store more fat.

  • HomeLight raises $11M for real estate agent search | VatorNews on Apr 21, 16

    • Even so, HomeLight says only 10 percent of home buyers find a real estate agent online, with most still going through traditional offline means. What the company is doing differently, a spokesperson told me, is making data a “backbone of their service.”
    • HomeLight has created a new way for consumers to put the home transaction into the hands of the person that is most certified to support their needs, and this is an incredible innovation,” said Oren Zeev of Zeev Ventures in a prepared statement. “I anticipate that within two to three years, people will use data to buy or sell their home - turning one of the most stressful times of their lives into one of the easiest, with new layers of trust and transparency."

      If they continue their current trajectory, HomeLight could be a powerful force in the real estate market. Year-over-year, the company experienced 400 percent growth in the volume of matches on its platform.
