The Important Of Sweet Potato

POTATOES scientifically named Solanum tuberosum are the most efficient fuel for energy production, which can also be stored as glycogen in muscle and liver, functioning as a readily available energy source for prolonged, strenuous exercise. The sweet potato usually have yellow or orange flesh, and its thin skin may either be white, yellow, orange, red or purple. Some yams are shaped like a potato, being short and blocky with rounded ends, while other times, the potato will be longer with tapered ends just like a yam. There is often much confusion between sweet potatoes and yams as the moist-fleshed, orange-coloured root vegetable that is often called a “yam” is actually a sweet potato.

However, sweet potatoes are rich in Vitamin A and Vitamin C. Both vitamins are powerful antioxidants that work in the body to remove free radicals – chemicals that damage cells. Also, sweet potato is a good food for people involved in heavy muscular work, since it is a food that is high in vitamins and minerals.

Sweet potatoes are reasonably low in calories and comprise no fat. They are rich source of beta-carotene, potassium, and vitamin A. Vitamins C and B-complex along side minerals like potassium, magnesium, phosphorus and zinc are good for the skin. The pulp obtained from crushed raw potatoes, when mixed with honey, can serve as an excellent skin and face packs. This mixture is also effective even in curing pimples and spots on the skin. Again, this pulp, if applied externally on burns, gives a quick relief and heals fast. Smashed potatoes, even water in which potatoes are washed, are very good for softening and cleaning skin, especially around elbows and back of the palms
So, sweet potatoes are gaining a reputation for being an extremely important addition to diets. Why? The impulse of us all, bacterium, animal, or human, or indeed a gene, is, said 19th century biologist Charles Darwin, to reproduce and prolong the life of the species. A potato is good for stomach ulcer, duodenum ulcer and stomach acidity. To use the potato for these ulcerous conditions, wash and grate several raw potatoes. Put in a cheese cloth and squeeze to remove the juice. Or slice potatoes and thereafter, sprinkle with a small amount of salt, let sit overnight and collect the juice the next morning. Drink 1/2 cup of this raw potato juice three times a day before meals for a great benefit.

Potatoes are also very effective in improving resistance to heart attack and stroke. The potassium content, available in potatoes, helps in maintaining fluid and electrolyte balance in the body cells. Potatoes are mounds of carbohydrates and contain little proteins too. This makes it an ideal diet for those lean and thins who desperately want to put on weight. The vitamins like vitamin-C and B-complex also help in proper absorption of this carbohydrate.
Pick up the freshest of potatoes to prepare these sumptuous potato meals.

Six Sweet Ways to Stay Slim

Diet. Ugh – the 4 letter word that strikes fear into the hearts of even the strongest person. The cravings. The doing-without. The hunger.

But what if there were a way to have your cake and eat it too? What if there were SIX ways?
These 6 sweet secrets will have you cruising through cravings and dancing rather than doing-without in no time!
Sweet Secret #1 – Erythritol

The amazing sweetener with the funny name! Unlike the other sugar-derived sweeteners that have flooded the market today, erythritol does not cause an insulin spike in your blood sugar, due to the way it’s digested.
“In the body, erythritol is absorbed into the bloodstream in the small intestine, and then for the most part excreted unchanged in the urine. Because erythritol is normally absorbed before it enters the large intestine, it does not normally cause laxative effects as are often experienced after over-consumption of other sugar alcohols (such as xylitol and maltitol) and most people will consume erythritol with no side effects.” (Source: Wikipedia)
Erythritol is the primary sweetener in Vitamin Water 10, can be used instead of refined table sugar in goodies like pecan pie and still satisfies the ol’ sweet tooth.
Sweet Secret #2 – Fruit

Ok, not as much of a secret, but definitely overlooked! Fruit can be used in a wide variety of applications to satisfy your need for sweet without undoing all the hard work you’ve put into losing weight!
Wrap a whole wheat tortilla around a tablespoon of peanut butter and a whole banana for your mid-morning snack (or substitute apple slices for the banana if you don’t like the texture). No refrigeration needed – perfect if you work in an office environment!
Eat an orange rather than have that cup o’ juice with breakfast! The fruit itself contains more fiber and other nutritionally rich bonuses that the juice alone just can’t compete with!
Cherries are a great sweet that won’t cause an insulin spike in proper amount!
Another bonus? Each piece of fruit comes in its own pre-measured serving size by Mother Nature herself!
Sweet Secret #3 – Protein shakes

While a variety of protein shakes exist on the market today, most contain some form of artificial sweetener. However, every once in a while a manufacturer will put out a whey protein shake that actually tastes great without the aftertaste. This author highly recommends Gaspari Nutrition for this one!
Regardless of which brand you choose, a protein shake can give you an energy boost to get through a sluggish afternoon or put pep in your morning’s step and never get boring!
A vanilla shake blended with peaches and strawberries makes a great mix! A chocolate shake mixed with peanut butter can’t be beat when the Sugar Monster attacks!
The combinations are only limited by your imagination! Imagine – a snack you can’t get bored with!
Sweet Secret #4 – Dark Chocolate

OK, sometimes the choco-beastie wins and you just gotta have that hit of the good stuff! If you find yourself in the car at 2am heading towards McArches with a large frothy shake in mind, turn into your local grocery store instead.
Most grocery stores carry some form of dark chocolate on their shelves. Why go dark?

1. It’s heart healthy (packed with antioxidants to combat free radicals!)

2. It stimulates endorphin production, which gives a feeling of pleasure

3. It contains serotonin, which acts as an anti-depressant

4. It contains theobromine, caffeine and other substances which are stimulants (so if you’re going to the store at 2am, keep the intake to a minimum!)

And hello! It’s still CHOCOLATE!

Sweet Secret #5 – NO ALTERNATIVES

Not so much something to eat as it is a rule to live by!

Sounds funny to say, but try NOT to eat “healthy” alternatives to your fav sweet treats. Low-fat and low-calorie versions of the stuff that got you on a diet in the first place don’t break an addiction you may have to the original goodie. Plus they’re usually packed with artificial sweeteners and other junk that still spikes your insulin, making it harder to get the weight off! (See my article Undercover Calories on for more on this one!)

Sweet Secret #6 – Give In (Sort of)

Wait, what? That’s right! Give in…IN MODERATION! That doesn’t mean “go whole hog”. It doesn’t mean throw your diet out the window until tomorrow. It doesn’t mean you’re free to eat whatever you want for the next 12 hours.

It means that if you’d sell your oldest child for a candy bar – then have the candy bar. Just throw out the first bite.

A dieter who constantly denies the foods they truly want will wind up binging, going off their diet (97% of the time) and gaining more weight than they did when the diet started.

By throwing out the first bite, you’re psychologically ensuring that you don’t eat the entire candy bar. You’re proving you have the willpower to not gulp down an entire Big Slurp. You’re showing yourself that when the next craving hits, you have the determination to stay on the program you’ve selected!

And you’re also making certain that you stick to your planned weight loss goals by not denying yourself and then waking up surrounded by the fallen soldiers of candy bar wrappers and ice cream containers! Giving in once in a blue moon means a less-likely chance that you’ll binge later!
The Sweetest Secret of All

When it all boils down to it, finding a healthy alternative for the sweets you crave brings you one step closer to achieving your goal of good health.

But here’s the biggest kick of all – the best fat blocker, the best appetite suppressant, the best weight loss pill on the planet rests between your ears.

It’s you. Your mind. Your abilities. Your will to feel better and fit into any pair of jeans you want.

The next time you’re at a business lunch and your partner or client orders a cherry pie for dessert, and the urge is so strong to “just have it this one time” – imagine what you’ll look like once you’ve finished your diet and ask yourself, “Is it worth it?” Chances are, it’s not.

But if it is – make sure you throw out the first bite!

Jobs For Kids Under 16

Finding a Job when you’re younger than 16 can be a difficult task. If you’re looking for a job that you can do from home then this is it. If you’d rather not work at home, know that working somewhere else your parent / parents would have to drive you there and pick you up. You’re dealing with bosses who I can almost guarantee hate their job. I’m 16 years old, I’ve had a lot of jobs where you go somewhere you clock in you clock out and you get a pay check.

Some decent jobs are busing tables, helping customers at retail stores like Circuit City or Best Buy, if you live near parks or ranges helping with horses can be a decent job too. Most vet offices or kennels hire kids 16 and under to help with the animals. Also animal shelters and clinics look for kids too. I made a good amount of money cutting grass around my neighborhood but with the prices that the lawn companies can put out it’s really hard to compete. If you’re good with computers local computer repair shop will surely hire a 16 year old to help out.

I really wish I discovered this job sooner, you work from home on your computer and you make a few hundred bucks a month. It’s called GPT Services, they are by far the most efficient way to spend your time and earn a nice check while in school or if ur not in school and just want some extra cash. “GPT” or “Get Paid To” websites are a great way to earn a few hundred dollars a month with minimal work. No experience is required, I highly recommend this be your choice for spending that free time.

Chapter 16: Family Ties

  Chaapter 16:  Family  Ties

By this time my borther had married and had a two year old daughter.  They lived in Bowling Green, and my brother worked in the audio visual department of the hospital.  I found a position as director of religious education at St. Mary’s in Clyde, a small town near Genoa. The pastor there had been pastor in Genoa and so knew my family well.  I had no sooner got settled in at St. Mary’s when one night Dad called to say that Joe had been killed.  My brother had taken an extra job as photographer at the Indianapolis  races. He was standing on a platform filming, when he was hit in the back of the neck by a motor from a car which had wrecked and split apart.  He was dead upon reaching the hospital.  The pastor of St. Mary’s drove home with me that night.  Mom and Dad said that a van drove into the driveway and that it was annonced to them of his  freak accident and subsequent death.  I immediately thought of my dream of the van and the “sun” falling as the family mourned the loss. This was a terrible blow to our family, expecially for Mom in her illness. But we pooled our strength and celebrated Joe’s life and the gift he had been to each of us.

In April of that year, Mom was hospitalized again.  It did not look good and I decided i was needed at home to help Dad.  I finished the year at St. Mary’s and then found a position teaching grade seven at a near by Catholic school. I did not think that a year was much time to make a difference in a parish, but a note from two of the parish leaders convinced me that my presence had made a difference.  My provincial team called to say they would mission me to the new position.  The leave of absence was over. 

Much of the summer was spent entertaining my two year old niece.  She would call her father on her toy phone.  She seemed to think that heaven was a place that she and I had been to before. She said to me, “Remember we walked down the road, turned the corner and there was heven”.  I am always sad that I did not question her more about that statement becuse today she can not recall it. 

The sister who was pastoral minister at Genoa became good friends with me and heled me immensely by her strong support. She has always been very affirming and of couse she urged me to write this autobiograhy.  Mom was in a coima three times during her stay at the hospital.  The last time, she came out of the coma to the call of my voice.  As she wanted to come home, we arranged for oxygen at the house.  In August, Mom died one night while I held her up and Dad went to get medicine..  She looked at the picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus on her bedroom wall and seemed to slip right into it. I still have the picutre.  Now it is in my bedroom and I too hope to look at it,  as I draw my last breath. 

I had actually only taught a half year in the seventh grade after Mom’s death.  My provincial had suggested that I resign due to it being a stressful situation.  I did some work as a house mother in a home for emotionally disturbed children for about two months.  I kept getting sore throats each tine I would go for the long overnight work hours. Finally I began to sub in the public school whcih I found to my liking.  I recieved one six week subbing position. At the end of  the year, I was offered a permanent position. I needed to make a decisiion.  

In the midst of all the pain and confusiion, before she died, Mom had told Dad that he was to see that I got to go on a trip for my Silver Jubilee.  The Holy Land was my choice, a place I had desired to go ever since my scripture courses.  So I was off to the Holy Land.  I went with a pilgrimage group,  since Dad did not want to go.  The trip was a wonderful experience.  In early morning, I  would walk around the hotel  where you could see scenes of shepherds with their sheep on the neighboring hills. I was very fond of the Good Shepherd theme and grateful for all the dark valleys he had seen me through. Golgatha too seemed to promise resurrection for me. I decided I needed to return to religious education.

Dad was in great grief.  He wanted me to continue to do my ministry, so I decided that I would look for a position near by so I could look in on him weekly.  That position turned out to be St. Rose in Perrysburg. I would be able to live with the Ureslines who worked in the  school.  While there, I worked with the Weds Group and joined the guitar group.  I also took a course at Bowling Green on Teilhard de Chardin in whomn I had been inteerested for many years. I consider hin a spiritual mentor. 

I was going home weekly to help Dad with laundry and house and to put some cooked meals in the freezer.,  In his great grief, the Knights of Columbus introduced him to a widow who he thought reminded him of Mom. I didn’t think it was a goood idea, but didn’t think it was my place to hinder him. So when they decided to marry, I  knew it was time for me to return to northern Ohio closer to  my community. 

Even though the grief was enormous, I was given a great gift.  I had a series of dreams about my mnother. In the dreams, I knew she had jpassed over and was visiting me from heaven. She was leading me by her presence in my dreams. I religiously began to write my dreams down and decided to choose a yearly symbol for my dreanm journal.  The symbol I chose for 1982 was the rainbow.  It seemed to hold a promise for me.  I had a little pocket calendar which had a rainbow on the cover. Then the sisters with  whom I lived confirmed my choice with their beautful card having a rainbow on the cover.  This was the beginning of my life filled with synchronicities or it is when I became aware of all these messages from the universe.  On the card, one sister wrote: “She is like a tree planted near running water.  It yields its fruits in due season; whatever she does prospers.” (Psalm 1)

Thus it was that I began my beautiful Rainbow Path of illumination and enlightenment.  Life wouldnot be free of difficulties, but I knew I had completed a very difficult portion of my life and I felt that I had completed it very well.

Linear Technology Introduced 16

Launch 16 channels LED Driver LT3754, the device can drive up to 45V for a 50mALED (per channel) of step-up DC / DC controller. Its internal 60V, 1MHzDC/DC boost mode controller designed for as many as 160 used to drive a white LED constant current LED driver designed. LT3754 12V input can be driven from the 16 channels, each channel has a series of 50mA up to 10 white LED, while providing more than 92% efficiency. The multi-channel capability makes the device suitable for medium to large size TFT-LCD backlighting applications. The 6V to 40V input voltage range makes the device ideal for Car , Air Electronic , HD TV (HDTV) and industrial display applications.

LT3754 offers ± 2.8% (typical value ± 0.7%) of the LED current matching to ensure a consistent display brightness. Dimming ratio up to 3,000:1 by using real color PWM (TrueColorPWM) dimming access. Programmable 100kHz to 1MHz fixed frequency current mode architecture work and the wide Power supply And provide a stable output voltage range of work, while minimizing external component size. In addition, Switch Frequency can be synchronized to an external clock. Its thermally enhanced 5mm × 5mmQFN-32 package for the application of LED backlighting provides a very compact footprint solution.

LT3754 uses an external N-channel MOSFET Switch To provide a boost mode, constant current source. But even when VIN exceeds VOUT, LT3754 will continue to accurately adjust LED current. Internal step-up controller uses an adaptive feedback loop to regulate the output voltage, so slightly higher than the LED voltage required to ensure maximum efficiency. If any one LED string appears open, it will continue to adjust the existing LED string to the pin OPENLED alarm signal. If you need more current LED, you can combine multiple LED strings, so LT3754 can drive up to 8 LED strings, each string of 10 100mALED composition, or drive four channels, each channel by 10 200mALED composition. Other features include programmable undervoltage protection, based on junction temperature and / or LED temperature of the LED current derating, and all LED strings were disconnected when the output voltage limiting function.

LT3754EUH 32-Lead 5mm × 5mmQFN package, 1,000-piece quantities, is priced at 4.25 U.S. dollars each. Industrial grade versions LT3754IUH tested to ensure that in -40 to 125 operating junction temperature range, 1000 approved the purchase price was 5.00 U.S. dollars per tablet.
