Cure It! Natural Remedies for Mosquito Bites

It's the most wonderful time of the year: mosquito bite season.

Here's how to get rid of those nasty bites before you scratch your arm off!
Alcohol: While pounding a few beers can help you forget about your itchy skin, that's not the type of alcohol I'm talking about. Grab rubbing alcohol or an alcohol wipe from a first aid kit and clean the infected area as soon as you notice you're bitten, and it can help prevent severe itchiness. No alcohol? Simple soap and water works well, too.
Ice: To reduce swelling and numb the itch away, an ice pack does the trick. If you have too many bites to count, go for a cold shower or a dip in a chilly lake.
Toothpaste: If you don't mind little white spots all over your skin, apply dabs of peppermint toothpaste for quick itch relief.
Banana peel: Don't knock it till you try it! The sugars from the peel may help draw fluid out of the bite, so try rubbing the inside of a banana peel on the area.
Saliva: A trick my brother used to use on me, spit a little on your finger, gently dab it on the bite, and let air-dry.
*Leonardo Dicaprio spit is the best, though I heard its hard to come by...
Slapping: It may seem a little odd, but you can confuse your nerves by slapping the area with your hands, and your brain won't be able to discern between itch and pain.

When I was younger at summer camp I would put nail polish over my bites to make it stop itching. It was probably so bad for me but it worked!
@allischaaff Hope they help! And I agree @Nisfit, I might not use that method until I'm really desperate.
What? This is exactly what I need! I think I'll pass on the slapping though...
You know I'm trying every single one of these! Mosquito bites are the worst. It's barely beach season and already I have three :(
Ya I'm having the same issues over here in Texas. we'll at least we're no longer in a drought. 😄

Man Plays Saxophone While Receiving Brain Surgery
A team of doctors in Spain became medical pioneers after performing neurosurgery on 27-year-old Carlos Aguilera while he remained conscious and playing his saxophone. Carlos was undergoing surgery to have a brain tumor removed, and as a diehard musician, the medical team didn't want him to have to lose his ability to play his saxophone any time soon. His neurosurgeon, Dr. Guillermo Ibáñez of the Regional Hospital of Málaga, insisted that playing the instrument mid-surgery would help the team keep the part of the brain that deals with music language unharmed during the tumor removal. According to the BBC, the patient performed a number of jazz standards for a team of sixteen medical professionals - during a surgery that lasted OVER 12 HOURS! After the surgery proved to be a success and Carlos had properly recovered, both he and his doctor participated in a press conference, where he explained how it felt to be the first patient in such an experimental surgery: "Music is what has accompanied me half a lifetime, so when the doctors told me I could do that, I did not think twice." A recording of the surgery has been made available to the Associated Press, so if you haven't hit your quota of extremely strange YouTube videos yet this week, the following clip is for you. (WARNING: It's definitely an uncensored surgery video, so proceed with caution.) So what do you guys think? Would you have been brave enough to pull this off?

두유노 파브르? 사실 파브르는 곤충기 이외에도 흥미로운 일화가 있음 사실 파브르는 교육과 사회를 바라보는 시각이 굉장히 진보적이었음 사범학교를 수석으로 졸업해 초등교사가 된 뒤, 자신이 어려운 유년시절을 보냈던 만큼 배움의 열망을 가진 아이들을 위해서 최선을 다했음 그 당시는 여자 아이들은 학교를 다닐 수 없었음 하지만 파브르는 자신의 월급을 털어 측량기구를 구입하고, 교장을 설득해 실용 과목을 개설해 소녀들과 어려운 아이들에게도 교육의 기회를 줬음 뿐만 아니라 그는 노동자, 농민, 여성들을 자신의 강의에 참석시키고 생물학과 박물학을 강의함 ㅇㅇ 여성의 교육과 권리를 재차 주장했던 그는 당시로서 혁명 그 자체였음 BUT….. 그때나 지금이나 늘 보수 진영은 존재했고,당시 노동자와 농민을 교육시키는 파브르는 사회 체제를 무너뜨릴 만큼 위험한 인물로 인식되었음 먼저 성직자와 교회의 비난이 시작됨 예를들어 꽃의 수정과정에서 암술과 수술의 만남을 강의하면 파브르의 강연이 저질이고 외설적이라며 그를 매도했음; 지들이 음란마귀아님? 그 이후 학자들과 기득권은 정규 코스를 밟지 않았던 파브르를 시기하고 비정규직으로 차별했고, 결국 파브르는 진보 성향을 가진 교육부 장관 뒤쥐와 함께 쫓겨나게 됨 ㅠ 물론 그 이후도 곤충과 식물 연구를 멈추지 않았고, 무려 30년에 걸친 이 대작으로 인해 그는 세계적인 학자로 이름을 떨치게 되었음 ^^ 파브르라는 학자는 우리가 지금까지 알고 있던 것 처럼 단순히 곤충만 연구한 사람이 아님 열린 사고와 사회진보적인 성향을 가지고 뒤뤼의 평생교육론을 받아 들여 자신의 평생을 자연과 교육에 바친 학자이자 교수였음 ㅇㅇ 사실 우리가 알고 있던 것 보다 훨씬 멋지고 편견 없는 인물임
A Simple Guide to Women's Vitamins

Taking the right supplements will give your body the vitamins and minerals it needs to stay in top shape. This list contains some of the best vitamins for young adult women, but are only suggestions! Food is the best source of nutrition, but when you have fallen into a junk food kick or have been sick and unable to get the right vitamins, this list should help boost your body’s nutritional intake. A Good Women’s Multi. If you’re going to choose one vitamin from this list, it should be a multi-vitamin that is made specifically for women. Make sure it contains folic acid, which is very important for women ages 18 to 40! Be sure to take these after you have eaten something. It is very common to feel nauseous if you take one of these on an empty stomach. Biotin. Biotin does amazing things for hair, skin and nails. Just taking 500 micrograms a day, can make your hair longer and shinier, your skin clearer, and your nails stronger. Iron. Iron is especially important for any vegan or vegetarians out there. You only need about 10-20 milligrams, but it makes a serious difference in your mood. If you eat a lot of red meat (about a serving every day) you might be getting enough iron already. Leafy greens like spinach are also great source of iron! Zinc. Zinc is an important mineral that boosts our immune systems and helps to fight off disease. Make sure you’re getting between 8 milligrams and 11 milligrams of zinc daily. Fish Oil. This omega-3 right supplement is fabulous for healthy hair, skin and nails, and will support your heart and blood systems. Take about 1-2 grams per day. But be prepared, certain capsules might lead to weird fish oil burps later in the day (ew!) Vitamin D. The main job of vitamin D is to help your bones absorb calcium and phosphorus and to keep your cells happy and healthy. You can get a ton of this from sunlight, my letting the sun hit your closed eyelids for fast absorption! If you live somewhere with constant cloudy weather or you're inside too much, you might not be getting enough vitamin D. Taking 3000 IUs should help to get you back on track. Calcium-Magnesium. Calcium is one of the most important supplements that women can take to strengthen their muscles, bones and teeth. A glass of milk just isn't going to cut it! The recommended dosage is 1000 milligrams of calcium and 400-600 milligrams of magnesium. As with all things in life, take these suggestions in moderation!
Self-care: Skincare Routine
Hello fam! Taking care of your outside is a part of self care. Skin care is not only good practice or hygiene, but can help reduce stress with the time and quality of products that you use. I will share my updated skin care routine. FYI my skin type is dry and sensitive. 1. Music I always have to play some music and groove when I take care of my skin. As ya know I'm either rocking out to BTS or some rock band! 2. Products for Day Time: Real Cica Micellar Cleansing Foam and Drunk Elephant Protini Moisturizer This cleanser is super gentle and so silky. It does have a super light scent. This does not dry out my skin.I purchased my on Amazon. It's under 20 bucks and a little goes a long way. I use this in the morning. This is expensive!!! I will say about $65 bucks USA coins. However, a little goes a long way and the formula is like hydrating your skin with silk. This is light weight but super hydrating. Great to apply before make up as well. 3. Night Time Products: Biore Witch Hazel Pore Clarifying Cooling Cleanser, Real Cica Essense Pads, and Dr. Jart Ceramidin This cooling gel cleanser gives me life and soothes my skin at night time. It feels so relaxing. Make sure not to leave in skin for too long if you have sensitive skin. These pads claim to be a light skin peel. I will say that it does soften my skin, reduces irritation and or inflammation, and leaves skin supple with a glow. You can purchase these on Amazon too. This moisturizer has so many natural ingredients and does have a lemon scent. This is thicker but super hydrating. This does help reduce irritation as well. This did cost about $35 bucks. 4. Makeup face: Take the day off Cleansing Milk For my make up I double cleanse. I use this Cleansing Milk followed by either or wash and my night time moisturizer. This was $25 at Ulta. Sorry folks I know I should use spf but I don't. I used to use this sun blocker but it ended up breaking me out after 6 months of using it.
Habits To Improve Your Future
You may feel cornered by life as a result of stagnant work, neglect of your mental and physical health, and unsuccessful personal health and vitality. Thus, you may not fulfill your goals and reach your potential, leading to unhappiness. You should be aware that all these mishaps happen to everyone, and you are not an exception. You can change whatever happens in your life regardless of the situation. Furthermore, you will require more courage, work, and toughness to achieve your aspirations. Have belief in what you partake, and you will reach your future goals by setting up and following new habits. Below are the habits that will help you improve your future. Avoid Excuses Do not make excuses. When you are in search of an excuse or a reason for not doing the right thing, you will always find one. If you want to know how you led yourself into unhappiness and have control of your life, you ought to know the ways that you implore in making poor decisions.  Poor decisions often emanate from procrastination, coming up with excuses such as fatigue, lateness, and complexity of tasks given. Motivate yourself to work better, have control of your life, and avoid reasons. Leave your comfort zone, avoid making excuses, and work harder to be happy. Prioritize Do not sacrifice what you want in the future for the desires of the moment. Though it is enticing to go to a show, movie, or relax, do not give in to the urge. Instead, put all your energy on the given task to completion, prepare dinner for your family or visit the gym.  Do not let instant pleasure take the part of the goals that you want to achieve in the future, such as the ones that will help you boost your self-esteem and progress in the direction of what you want to fulfill. Do not sacrifice the things that will lead to a lasting and consistent joy for happiness that is short-lived. Instant gratification leads to unhappiness after they get gratified, and you may end up not fulfilling the long-term dreams. Be receptive Avoid taking everything that is said to you or about your personal life. When you get treated poorly, get advice that is unsolicited or gets terrible comments, do not react if they do not call for a reaction. The comments will define the commenter more than it will represent you if you do not respond than if you do. When you get bad comments, journey on and focus on your goals. Do not let people pin you down by their opinions about you. Exercise If you want to feel better every time and physically fit, then exercise. The endorphins that will get produced during the activity will release you from stress, make you happy, and relax your mind. You will have a sharper memory, reduced anxiety, and stability when you exercise before partaking a cumbersome activity. Get some little exercise every time that you feel stuck, panic-stricken, and overwhelmed by the presented task. After exercising, the decisions that you will make will be reasonable and not reactive. Go for a ride in sedans to clear your mind. Do not play the victim. You should know that you cannot be a victim of every circumstance and whim that you are unable to control in your life. The way you handle and view circumstances will be the determinant of changes in your current situation.  Do not resist the responsibilities presented; instead, take control and own them. Furthermore, desist from putting blames on others. When you take responsibility for your actions, you will have the power to start being industrious and, therefore, progress. Acknowledge and own your fears Don't be afraid of failing, as every successful person has failed. Instead, face your fears and focus on becoming the best version of yourself every day. Practice these habits, and you will improve your future.

히말라야 셰르파
만년설이 뒤덮인 히말라야 고산지역의 에베레스트를 올라가기 위해서는 철저한 준비와 강인한 체력과 정신력 외에 필요한 사람이 있는데 그 사람은 바로 ‘셰르파’입니다. 셰르파는 흔히 등반가의 짐을 날라주는 단순 보조인으로 생각하는 경우가 있는데 천만의 말씀입니다. 1953년 5월 29일, 세계 최고봉 에베레스트 정상에 첫발을 디딘 사람은 뉴질랜드인 ‘에드먼드 힐러리’와 셰르파 ‘텐징 노르가이’였습니다. 이처럼 히말라야의 위대한 산악인 곁에는 항상 위대한 셰르파가 함께 있었는데 셰르파라는 단어는 짐꾼을 뜻하는 것이 아니라, 네팔 고산 지대에 거주하는 소수민족의 이름입니다. 셰르파족은 약 500년 전 동부 티베트에서 에베레스트 남부 빙하 계곡으로 이주해 왔다고 합니다. 아무리 험하고 가파른 곳이라도 그들이 가면 길이 열립니다. 정상으로 향하는 새로운 길을 뚫고 개척하는 사람들, 이들의 정신을 ‘패스브레이킹’이라고 말하기도 합니다. 패스브레이킹, 무슨 뜻일까요. ‘패스'(Path, 사람들이 지나다녀 생긴 작은 길)와 ‘브레이킹'(Breaking, 깨뜨리다)의 합성어로 기존의 틀을 과감히 벗어나 남들이 가지 않는 새로운 길을 내는 개척자를 뜻합니다. 셰르파들은 보통 유명 산악인들의 이름에 가려져 있는 것이 대부분입니다. 하지만 그들은 오늘도 꿋꿋이 험한 길을 뚫고 설산을 오르고 또 오릅니다. 그들의 ‘패스브레이킹’ 정신 앞에 히말라야도 머리를 숙이는 것입니다. 이처럼 단단한 마음을 가지고 있으면 세상에 넘지 못할 일은 없습니다.   # 오늘의 명언 길이 이끄는 대로 가지 마라. 길이 없는 곳으로 가서 족적을 남겨라. – 랄프 왈도 에머슨 – =Naver 따뜻한 하루"에서 이식해옴..... #도전정신 #새로운길
Japan's New Temporary Tattoos Detect A Common Food Allergy.
Food allergies are no joke. As many of you might know, being allergic to foods like nuts, eggs, and wheat flour can cause a range of extremely dangerous symptoms, ranging from itching and nausea to even painful swelling of the throat and airways. Japan has been taking a pretty impressive proactive stance for early allergy detection - and the method they've employed to get the job done might really surprise you! These 'ukiyo-e'-inspired temporary tattoos have been specially created to indicate whether or not the wearer is allergic to soba. Soba, a staple noodle popularly enjoyed in the country, is made from buckwheat, the top food-related allergen among children in East Asia - with the strongest reactions resulting in anaphylactic shock. If the wearer is not allergic, the tattoo will remain a black-and-white design. If the wearer has an allergy, sudden red detailing will appear. And, differently from a traditional allergy test, this indication does not result in burning or itching skin. The tattoos are currently being used by the 230 Soba Street Promotion Association, a Hokkaido-based group of soba noodle restaurateurs along the region's popular foodie destination, Route 230. They hope that this kind of technology will catch on and encourage similar products to be made for other common food allergies. Would you rock one of these tattoos?
