Plants have been known to purify the air in our homes. Although I love having plants, I tend to kill half of them. Yet I know the benefits far outweigh the negatives. I guess I must not have a green thumb like my sister. Everything she touches turns to gold.
My sister can grow a tiny seed into a beautiful full-grown plant. The front of her yard is a feast for the sore eyes. People walking by would stop, admire, and take note before moving on. I am her biggest fan and admirer.
When I was moving to another state…
A banana is a fruit and all fruits are considered good for you except in moderation because some are packed with carbohydrates (carbs).

So let us look at these details to understand the realm of timing and benefits.
Bananas are an excellent source of potassium and vitamin B6. Potassium helps to regulate heart function and control electrolyte balance in the body. …
I Await the Days and Nights
How must I prepare against a bare horizon?
How must I react
When the white of their eyes
Unbeknownst to me?
A cavalry invisible
Devouring the weakest in a steadfast journey
I await the days and nights
Locked in the confines of my tent
My epitaph lingers at my tongue
It is coming! I hear others convulse
Yet, I dare not steal a look
For the faintest or the weary may tether my heart
And lure me into their wrath
I await the days and nights
It knows no boundaries
Or illicit any remorse
There’s no doubt this environment has been stressful on many lives when it comes to trying to keep an active lifestyle.
Did you miss your Gymnasium (Gym) where you were lost in your favorite podcast while running on a treadmill or spinning on your bike? What about that blast class with the hard-nosed instructor who pushed you beyond your limits because you could do it?
Remember that energized moment when you were done working out, and you felt that renewed sense of self?
Not having to worry about who was next to you and whether you’re inhaling a droplet that…
And the Future of Corporate Institutions…
A s a country, we have come a long, long way with many changes. But where is today’s institutional change taking us as a country?
We have had prominent men like John D. Rockefeller and Andrew Carnegie who worked their tails off building America for the future of its citizens.
By the age of 20, Rockefeller was already in oil partnerships. He founded the University of Chicago, the Rockefeller Medical Research University in the Upper East Side of New York City, and The Central Philippine University in the Philippines.
Andrew Carnegie was the steel…
Running is a great sport and beneficial in many ways to the human body. As 60 million Americans and over 600 million around the world will tell you that running is a lifestyle.
Especially now and over the last year during this stressful time with COVID-19, there are more runners taking the roads and trails. I just joined that pack only eight months ago, and have since run over 600 miles and two half-marathons.
This brings us to the question, is running innate to us as a species?
Let us go back to an archaic time to see how we…
The Oxford University and AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine AZD1222 in the United Kingdom has shown to be less effective, but works with great efficacy against the U.K. Variant B.1.1.7.
Although the proven efficacy has only been 62%, it is already being used in India, Mexico, Argentina, and many other countries.
The U.K. has been faster to push these vaccines to market than the United States, because its regulators rely on the company’s own data to draw their conclusions. (Unlike the independent, scientific review by the Food Drug Administration (FDA) in the U.S.) This data suggested that,
“AstraZeneca confirms 100% protection against…

Will COVID-19 become the next Influenza?

In a short time…
COVID-19 has put a damper on many areas of my life. Yet, at the same time, it forced me to look within during this perplexing time.
I learned in my early years that I had to muddle through whatever life throws at me. When COVID-19 broke my sails, I found a new way to garner a breath of fresh air.
Running was never my forte.
For as long as I remembered, exercise has been a part of my life. I took aerobic classes in the middle of the day, then after work, headed to the New York Sports Club to…
And will it work against variants?
Finally, a single dose vaccine! COVID-19 has not let up, and why should we? The Janssen vaccine was just approved on February 27th, by the Food Drug Administration (FDA) and will be given to anyone 18 years and older.
The FDA indicated that the Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine has met all the necessary criteria for issuance because the trial data has provided clear evidence in being effective against COVID-19.
The FDA said the benefits far outweigh the risk, and they have conducted a thorough evaluation of safety, effectiveness, and manufacturing quality. The most common side…
