Science informs us that such factors as genes and production of human growth hormone play an important role in determining how tall we become. It is a fact that our bones fuse, and stop growing after puberty. But does that mean there’s no hope for the past-puberty folks? There is hope.

There are several tricks that you can use to appear taller, without invasive procedures or other solutions. Among them is wearing clothes that hug your body. Not too tight.

You can also trick the view of other people to focus on the upper body, thus creating the impression that you are taller. You can do this by wearing accessories like a hat, pocket squares, tie pins, lapel pins, and glasses.

If you can make them believe you are taller, then who is to say you are not?

Why is Calcium Important for Dogs?

Calcium is an essential mineral for dogs and humans alike. It’s responsible for conducting electrical impulses, sending signals, contracting muscles (especially the heart), not to mention keeping those teeth and bones strong.

When dog’s don’t get enough calcium they can suffer the same consequences as us – they need ultimate pet nutrition. Notably the condition rickets (where bones become soft and fragile), muscle twitching, restlessness, stiffness, lethargy, convulsions, and osteoporosis.1

Why Shower Filters are Good for Your Health

Shower Filter

The best shower filter performs multiple functions of water filtering, hardness removal, disinfection, energizing, and natural medication. They relax the mind and body into the perfect state of stillness which removes the accumulated stress within the skin layers, muscles, and the central nervous system. The influence of the negative ions can heal many of the pain symptoms associated with the neck, lower back, joints and the spinal cord. The ions can also detox the skin and keep it away from the common disorders, infections and the diseases. The deep massaging effects of the far-infrared layers in the shower filter can enhance the circulation and restore the blood pressure to the normal conditions within the shortest span of time.

Water Filtering

The steel filters and the calcium sulfite in the initial layer of the filter remove all the macroscopic and microscopic impurities from the water. The sulfite is a highly soluble ingredient which is highly essential for the skin health by enhancing the protein supplies to the cells and tissues. The healthy effects can be seen in the epidermis, dermis, and the hypodermis layers due to the highly penetrating property of the calcium sulfite. Moreover, it increases the strength of the collagen molecules within the epidermis and the dermis layers. Consistent exposure can increase the tensile strength, flexibility and the elasticity of the skin. The probability of wrinkles’ appearance reduces considerably.

Comcast Now Offering Mesh Network Pods from Plume for $120+

Good news Comcast customers. You can now enjoy the fruits of Mesh WiFi Routing.

What is mesh? It’s the new way to connect to the Web in your home. That’s a gross simplification. A better explanation is instead of one router, you in effect have multiple routers through out your home, that all talk to one and other, allowing for better connectivity, less lag and down time. It’s great if you have a big home. It also works well in medium size homes. But it’s not really needed in small apartments, especially those those that are one floor.

The “pods” come from a partnership with Plume and they’re called “xFi Pods”. You can get three of them for $120 and six for $200.

In order to get the Pods and use them, you’ll need to be running one of the newer Xfinity home “Gateway” routers, though most customers seem to have them according to Comcast (15 million of 26 million to be more exact).

The setup is supposed to be dead simple. Just plug it in and you should have better internet..connectivity. That’s of course an assumption and more marketing speak. You can be a judge for yourself by ordering one and letting us know.

That said, there are variety of options on the marketing you can choose from.
