HumanHints, today ‘Control Your Anger’ – Consider The Consequences

Yesterday we talked about being aware of the consequences of our actions, using particle accelerators as an example. Great theory, but its useless if we can’t apply it to our daily lives when we are in dire need of help. In every conscious moment, we must remain fully aware that every action we take has a direct effect on others and on ourselves. When we keep this in mind, we will chose our actions far more consciously.

Today is Saturday, April 12, the 102nd day of 2014 There are 263 days left in the year.

HumanHints, today ‘Particle Accelerators’ Part 1 – Theory

It is absurd that scientists smash subatomic particles together, to see what’s inside. Imagine if aliens started smashing people into each other, to see what comes out. They’d see an arm, a leg, heads crushed in different ways, and wonder how these parts fit together to form a person. They would curiously note that the pieces couldn’t sustain life when they are separate from the whole.

Tropical diseases – an article by Heidi Marchena, pharmacist at Botica di Servicio

ARUBA – When planning your holiday abroad the logistics of the trip are usually taking up all the time and attention.  However, what you also should keep in mind is how to stay healthy abroad. Your first line of defense against tropical diseases and other maladies is protecting yourself. The three main ways that disease is spread are: contaminated food, contaminated water, and last but not least bites from mosquitoes, flies, ticks, fleas and other insects. Before packing your suitcase you should consult one of the specialized websites or your travel agency to inform you about what current health risks may be at hand at your destination. You may need to get a prescription or even a vaccination as a precaution.

HumanHints, today ‘Patterns Of Reaction’

Every day, we are relentlessly bombarded by external stimuli. Our reaction to the stimulus defines who we are and what our lives are like. In theory, we can change our lives by changing our reaction to daily stimuli, by changing out attitudes toward our lives. Its not what happens to us, it’s how we react to what happens, that defines who we are. As we grow, our reactions to different types of input first become automatic, then completely unconscious.

World Health Day 2014

World Health Day 2014 01“Small bites can be big threats,” experts warn on World Health Day One of every two people is at risk of diseases carried by insects

Mosquitoes, ticks, flies and other insects can be far more than a nuisance.

HumanHints, today ‘Your Electromagnetic Body – A Tool For Manifestation’

We are all aware of our physical bodies, but most of us are unaware of our electromagnetic Body. This is a portion of our selves that lies just beyond our limited perception of three dimensions. It is an entity that is conscious and aware of itself, just as it is aware of the physical part of you. Even though you are not aware of it, the ElectroMagnetic body is very much an aspect of you, expressing beyond three dimensional awareness.

Take this – KING CRAB and CRÈME BRÛLÉE of AVOCADO – you have to try this one!

HumanHints, today ‘Ego Exploits Imagination’

Human imagination holds the power of infinite creation, but in three dimensions, it is easily manipulated and abused by the Human Ego. Just like Einstein’s quip, “Great spirits will encounter fierce opposition from mediocre minds,” our powerful imagination is exploited by our insecure ego. When children play, they imagine themselves in another reality. Often, they get so into their alternate expression, they begin to loose the boundary between here and there.

Aruba’s Social Column “Bati Bleki” by Rona Coster April 7th, 2014

Bati BlekiIT WASN’T ME. Alex Luidens tells me on the phone that my dissatisfaction with King Ribs in the Wema Goes Memphis event was unrelated to him, because he did not participate. It was an imposter, he says, who left the membrane on the ribs, and did not cook the chicken thoroughly. I stand corrected. Sabrina, Alex’s daughter also assures me it was not her dad’s grill. Worried about their bruised name, she invited me to give their excellent food a try, soon.
