A Little Plant With Big Character

When I saw this plant, I smiled, because it was beautiful, neat-looking and fun to look at; so I took the liberty of photographing this little beauty. Enjoy!

Playing Around With Browsers

Recently, I surfed the internet with the intentions of finding out which was the number one browser; ironically, I received numerous answers where this is concerned. So, I can safely say that it is all a matter of preference.

The top favourites among many were: Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari and Opera. I wasn’t too surprised when I noticed that Internet Explorer wasn’t on the top of the list.

In the past, Internet Explorer was painfully slow and that gave it a bad reputation.

I have to admit, that Internet Explorer 9 is way faster than its previous versions (So, I have seen an improvement where speed is concerned).

Occasionally, I would use Mozilla Firefox; in my opinion, it works well (It is a secure browser which is trusted by many people around the world).

Where fast browsing is concerned, Chrome and Safari gets the job done!

In regards to functionality, I adore Opera’s “Speed dial” feature; a person’s favourite websites can be stored within large boxes that appear in order on the computer’s monitor (That is the simplest way that I can describe it).

I think that I need to use RockMelt more often; it is a browser that I hardly use and it is one which is recommended for those avid Facebook users, because it keeps a person in touch with their Facebook account (Actually, I am more interested in finding out if it is a reasonably fast and secure browser).

I think that by trying out the various browsers, a person may be in a better position to see which one fits their needs and their liking; which without a doubt, will vary from person to person.

Using A Microwave Oven Can Be Risky

The Argument

Some scientists have claimed that using a microwave oven is relatively safe, because they are tested to make sure that they are working without any flaws (You and I intuitively know that manmade items are not 100% flawless and that there are always some sort of surprise waiting to happen; they are usually the unpleasant kind).

The Manner In Which Microwaves Work

Microwaves, to put it simply are: very short waves of electromagnetic energy that travel at the speed of light.

The microwave oven uses alternating current; this is known to reverse polarity at a high rate; this by the way, causes the water molecules to vibrate and heat up.

Some Reasons Why Microwave Ovens Are Detrimental To Our Health

The seals of the doors of some microwave ovens are known to leak with age; once this happens, the person using the microwave oven can be harmed, because an average of 2.45 billion hertz is generated within the microwave oven. A human being can be severely harmed when 10 hertz and more are generated.

Some Harmful Effects Caused By Microwave Ovens

•A person’s immune system is weakened

•Cancer

•Birth defects

•Impaired cognition

•Vision and eye problems

The Question That We Should All Ask Ourselves 

Since a microwave oven can cause someone to become ill, why should it be used within the household?

The Conclusion

Many people are putting their health at risk by using a microwave oven. Mother Nature never intended human beings to prepare their food in such a manner. If you consider your health to be precious, I would advise discontinuing the usage of the microwave oven; that is provided that you own one.
