Kinda guess why do we exercise?

Exercise which is physical activity can improve your health and reduce the risk of developing several diseases like type 2 diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular disease. Exercise can have immediate and long-term health benefits. Most importantly, regular activity can improve your quality of life. A minimum of 30 minutes a day can allow you to enjoy these benefits.

The common care-free non-hustle exercise is jogging and adjacent to that is fast walking and that does not go without technique read here. That is so far outdoor exercise is concerned. A growing number today prefers for reason of constrain of time or pollution does exercise indoor. One good example is rebounding on cellercise. Don’t you like to jump-fly like bird by rebounding sometimes?

Research found out rebounding is better than jogging, read here. Do you rebound bare-footed or with shoes? It defends on preference. I opine it’s better to go with sneakers but not jogging shoes (thick hill).

Brain over Binge provides both a gripping personal account and an informative scientific perspective on bulimia and binge eating disorder. The author, Kathryn Hansen, candidly shares her experience as a bulimic and her alternative approach to recovery. Brain over Binge is different than other eating disorder books which typically present binge eating and purging as symptoms of complex emotional and psychological problems. Kathryn disputes this mainstream idea and explains why traditional eating disorder therapy failed her and fails many. She explains how she came to understand her bulimia in a new way – as a function of her brain, and how she used the power of her brain to recover – quickly and permanently. Kathryn also sheds new light on eating disorder topics such as low self-esteem, poor body image, and dieting. Brain over Binge is a brave book that will help many by delivering an informed and inspiring message of free will, self-reliance, and self-control.Brain Over Binge Recovery Guide is a follow up of Brain over Binge.

A number of studies have found that exercise helps depression. There are many views as to how exercise helps people with depression:

  • Exercise may block negative thoughts or distract you from daily worries.
  • Exercising with others provides an opportunity for increased social contact.
  • Increased fitness may lift your mood and improve your sleep patterns.
  • Exercise may also change levels of chemicals in your brain, such as serotonin, endorphins and stress hormones.

Exercise outdoor (meet new friends and enjoy fresh air), cellercise indoor (health focus).

Put Off By ‘Poop’ of Kopi Luwak Coffee?

Gentlemen,

AFRICAN CIVET

The first time I was introduced or come to know of ‘Kopi Luwak‘ is through the movie ‘Bucket List‘ starred by Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman. I like this movie with Jack Nicholson as the lead actor, and as an affordable rich man and about to die he boast of Kopi Luwak and his collection of Kopi Luak. He talked so much about it but not knowing of it’s origin and Morgan Freeman gave him a note to read.

I like Morgan Freeman in the thriller ‘Shawshank Redemption‘ and such a patient role in ‘Driving Miss Daisy‘.

Three reasons either combined or isolated why the human community, I mean the non-taste buddies, are put off with Kopi Luwak or Civet Coffee:

First being that the coffee is expensive which is a common reason for all expensive groceries;

Second being that the coffee produced is a result of cruelty (to certain extent in not a large scale farming) to animal, to civet a large an unfriendly cat (called ‘luwak’ in Indonesian language).

The third being that it is civet’s ‘poop’! Not exactly, it is nature’s fermentation process through the digestive system of the civets, expunged not necessarily with the poops. The civet eats the coffee berries bark and flesh and for no reason swallow the left-over kernels. And astonishingly when it eats the coffee berries it chooses by instinct the matured and fine ones only. Source for more Kopi Luwak here.

Moslems particularly may like to know what’s the status of Kopi Luwak, is it halal, after all it’s poop? Kopi Luwak is not halal per se, needs certification and so far none.

kopi-luwak-amd_civet_coffee1-240x320 - CopyThe image on the left shows that the civets are kept in fence fed with coffee berries like we kept chicken in fence fed with maze. Of course you may still debate let’s the wild be in the wild. Aplenty are still collected from the wild!

The expunged civet-fermented “coffee beans are washed dried in the sun. Once the beans are dry enough to remove the outer skin or parchment easily, they are put into a wooden mortar and pounded with a pestle. The beans are not affected by the pounding, but the skin will break apart, making it possible to easily remove the coffee beans. In the next step, the beans are hand-sorted to remove any damaged beans. Now the remaining kopi luwak beans are ready for roasting.

large-11-coffee-cherries-a865abcd7bfb4ae7bdb00592b0e0553dDespite all the abhor reasons: expensiveness, cruelty to animal and poop, Kopi Luwak is popular then ever and the most expensive coffee nature ever offers.

Kopi Luwak popularity lies in the taste as a result of the peculiar fermentation in the stomach of the civet of the Arabica coffee beans fine-selected by the civet. In a brew of coffee luwak hints of nut, ceramel and chocolate.

Thank you for your purchase(s) of the Kopi Luwak etc. and thank you too if you are just visiting.

Gyro, Shawarma and Jerky

shawarma-1564906_960_720

Originating from the Ottoman Empire Turkey in the 18th or 19th century Gyro or shawarma is doner Kebab. Doner means “rotating grilled meat.” When it was introduced to Greece, the locals named it “gyros,” the Greek word for “turn.” Likewise, when it spread through the Middle East, it was called “shawarma,” an Arabic word for “turning.” When the meat gloriously spins on a , these names stuck. The gyro or shawarma kebab is served from a large cone that slowly turns and roasts all day, cooking the meat in its own juices. Read further here and here for appreciation of the taste of gyro and shawarma and toppings.

 

The gyro and the shawarma are two staples of Mediterranean/Middle Eastern cuisine that have gone mainstream in the United States. Amazon’s has made itself a constant marketeer of the gyro and shawarma cones for conversion by sellers into sandwich, wrap or on plate all over the world.

Jerky takes a lot more meat costly to make. Beef is about 60% water, so when it is dried most of the weight is evaporated. It takes about 2.5 Lbs of quality beef to make 1 Lb of jerky. Not surprising more expensive.

Old Timer D5300 – Still Stuck Around For Good Reason Today

Gentlemen,

D5300

Nikon D5300

When I read the review on techradar.com’s “Best Nikon camera 2019: 10 brilliant cameras from Nikon’s line-up” picking D5300 as an old timer that still stuck around for good reason, I remember this song in the ever green movie Mackenna’s Gold, starred by Gregory Peck, Omar Sharif an that bald fellow Telly Savalas, why old turkey buzzard stuck around for kinda good reason too.

“There’s an old story. The way the Apaches tell it a man was riding in the desert and came across a vulture, the kind they call turkey buzzards in Arizona, sittin’ on a rock. “Hey”, the man says, “how come you old turkey buzzard’s sittin’ here? “I saw you flying over Hadleyberg, and I didn’t want to meet up with you…”so I turned around and come this way”. Old turkey buzzard says: “That’s funny, I was only passing through that town. “I was really coming over here to wait for you”.”

Almost everyone I came across with a camera hanging on his or her shoulder is a Nikon brand camera, less do I see Canon.

Nikon D5300

Type: DSLR | Sensor: APS-C CMOS, 24.2MP Movies: 1080p | User level: Beginner, enthusiast.

 

Nikon’s D5300 recently blew out the candles on its fifth birthday cake, which is quite an age for a DSLR of any level, let alone one in a fast-moving category like the entry-level DSLR. But, despite being updated by the D5500 and subsequent D5600, D5300 makes the list because it’s still a highly credible option for those getting into photography, with a feature-set that rivals newer models at the same price point.
