The willow bark tea works just like an aspirin and reduces pain and swelling.

Ginger: The uses of this wonder herb are innumerable. It is basically a traditional remedy and a kind of cure for arthritis, which has been passed from generations to generations. The yellow pigment of turmeric, curcumin has considerable anti-inflammatory effect.

Rosemary: Rosemary tea is a good option for improvement in an arthritic condition. Osteoarthritis, the most common type is mainly characterized by the inflammation of the joints. It has ginsenosides, which are at work when the body experiences any kind of stress. During the arthritis attacks, the nutritional needs of the body increase, which are recuperated with the help of copper.

Are you experiencing joint pain or do you have swollen joints? Well, if so, then you might be suffering from arthritis. Wintergreen: Wintergreen is the major component of wintergreen oil. It is advised that instead of the Alfalfa powder, herbal tea should be consumed for better results.

Licorice: It acts like a cortisone and has crucial anti-inflammatory and anti-allergy effect. Ginseng tea works wonders for treating arthritis. Ginger tea and compress are the easiest ways to tackle the swelling resulting from arthritis. It helps digest ‘fibrin’, which causes particular type of arthritis.

Angelica: It is a herb which is used as a part of European folk medicine. Free radicals occur in case of inflammation, growing age, and degenerative arthritis.

There are 12 anti-inflammatory constituents in the western variety of Angelica. It has various anti-spasmodic and pain relieving constituents.

Ginseng Liquor: An adaptogen, it helps the body to deal with any kind of stress. It has been used against inflammation since long.

Boswellia: It has an anti-inflammatory action which has rare properties. It is much like non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.

Celery: Eating raw or cooked celery is a good remedy against rheumatism. It is widely used in India.

Oregano: A powerful antioxidant, which helps prevent cell damage from free radicals. It is rich in minerals and various parts of celery contain more than 25 anti-inflammatory compounds.

Disclaimer: This Buzzle article is for informative purposes only, and it does not in any way attempt to replace the advice offered by an expert on the subject.

Willow: It has a chemical called salicin and it was touted as the original herbal aspirin. There is hardly a problem which cannot be dealt effectively by turmeric. Asian Ginseng can aggravate the pain, so make sure you use the American one.

We are sure that by now, all those who are experiencing joint pain must have grabbed at least one herb from the plethora of ones mentioned.

Sesame Seeds: The most important thing that sesame seeds have is the mineral copper. Go for the dried herb as it can be toxic, when used in the form of concentrated oil.

Turmeric: Turmeric is the star amongst the herbs in Asia, especially India. There are quite a few options, from antibiotics or pain killers to Ayurveda, for the treatment of this problem. It is a quintessential American folk medicine.

Alfalfa: This is one of the most used and popular remedy. These are becoming more widely used around the world, and no longer being restricted to the Orient.. It is a safe bet to use them as there are hardly any side effects of these herbs.

 Friday is also considered to be the day in which Cain murdered Abel. Other explanations of the unlucky number 13 can be found in the fact that there are 12 months in the year and 12 Zodiac signs. .

Fridays are considered unlucky due to being the day in which Jesus was crucified. There are many references to Friday in other mythology, but most consider the theological references as having the most merit in explaining the superstition surrounding the sixth day of the week.

Friday the 13th: The Complete Collection [Blu-ray]

Every so often the 13th day of the Gregorian calendar month lands on a Friday. And although the legend of Jason Voorhees and his infamous hockey mask may be the first thing that pops into contemporary minds, the history of the superstition of the 13th day of the month falling on Friday has a rather religious, theological slant.

But it seems the best method for understanding the importance of, or the superstition surrounding, the date is to split up the elements.

There are only a couple of references in literature to the superstition surrounding Friday the 13th.

The fear of the number 13, or triskaidekaphobia, can be found in everyday life in western civilization. With 13 people being involved in the last supper on the eve of Christ’s crucifixion. From hotels and high-rises being built without a 13th floor to people refusing to even go outside on the day, Friday the 13th is considered to be the most widely spread superstition in the United States. But many books, like Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code, have referenced the feared date as the date in which the Knights Templar were arrested by King Philip IV in 1307. But other scholars find no reference to the date being considered unlucky until the 1800s. And although horror film fans consider Friday the 13th as the day that Jason Voorhees comes to life once again to terrorize campers, very few people have a real understanding of the historical significance of the date. With thirteen being unlucky due to going past the restraints of the calendar year and Earth’s orbit of the sun.

Friday the 13th, or Black Friday, is thought by many scholars to have significance based on the death of Jesus Christ.

But the combination of the two elements, happening one to three times per year, has really only become a powerful superstition over the last couple centuries. Although the number 13 has a long history of being considered unlucky, historical references to the combination of Friday and the 13th day of the month have a much shorter history see here

Adelson’s casinos.” The fact that every action by every player online is tracked in real time he calls “a regulator’s dream.”

He wags a warning finger at legislation now pending in California and Pennsylvania that would make online gambling legal in those populous states. Its conclusion: “The overwhelming majority of online gamers play in a very moderate manner, spending minimal amounts on gaming.”

“Click your mouse and lose your house,” warns Adelson, Chairman and CEO of the Las Vegas Sands Corp.

It’s fool’s gold, he claims, because its profits have come only at the expense of brick-and-mortar casinos, with a corresponding loss of jobs. Adelson,” he says, “is staging a very belated and unimaginative rear-guard action.”

His views, expressed in an op-ed for Forbes, have not endeared him to fans of online poker, thousands of who now are trying to organize a boycott of the sumptuous poker room (59 tables, 14,000-sq. Online gambling worldwide is a $30 billion phenomenon; online poker alone accounts for $15 billion worldwide. Gambling online is already legal in Nevada, New Jersey and Delaware.

Internet gambling is already here, says Owens: 32 states already sanction it for horse betting. Says Owens of online gambling: “It’s not the looming menace it’s made out to be.”

For example, “The possibility of underage children finding ways to place online wagers and the possibility of people betting under the influence of drugs or being coerced are all scenarios that can happen when the person is only monitored by their own computer screen.

Ever since 2005, he says, the Harvard Medical School has been conducting an ongoing study of problem gamblers and the Internet. Of that total, the U.S. Unusual for its size and scope, the exercise collected data on some 40,000 individuals. accounts for a little less than half–or about $6 billion.

In the U.S., he predicts, the spread of online gaming will cost “400,000 lost jobs in casino-hosting cities across America”–200,000 jobs directly related to the gaming industry plus another 200,000 indirectly related.

“As an industry leader, and more importantly as a father, grandfather, citizen and patriot of this great country,” writes Adelson in his op-ed, “I am adamantly opposed to the legalization and proliferation of online gaming.”

Owens says the study found that people at risk of becoming addicted to gambling make up less than 2 percent of the population–a figure confirmed, he says, by a separate State of California study. “The reality is that licensed and regulated internet poker is taking place worldwide and right here in America and right here in his [Adelson's] back yard of Nevada. Alluding to “recent research from a number of European countries,” without identifying that research further, he says that countries in Europe that have legalized online gambling have seen a 20 percent decrease in visitation to land-based casinos.

“You would think,” he writes, “[that] the chairman of the world’s largest gaming company would pursue any aspect of gaming which could increase profits, right? Ordinarily that is true–but online gambling is ‘fool’s gold.’”

“I think he’s missed the mark by a wide margin,” says Pappas. Rather, the blow would fall on domestic casinos, including those run by Native Americans.

As for why the Internet gaming boom has been accompanied in Europe by a decrease in casino attendance, Owens sees nothing more pernicious at work than a change in gamblers’ demographics: Young people now do everything online, including gamble. ft.) of Adelson’s The Venetian casino and resort.

John Pappas, president of the 1-million-member-plus Poker Players Alliance calls Adelson’s worries baseless.. On the other hand, when a person makes an effort to get dressed, join some friends and head to the local casino for a night of entertainment, they must show themselves as adults, and their behavior can be observed and ultimately managed by security and other staff if needed.”

His own business, he says, would not suffer, since the Sands gets “almost all” its casino profits from Asia. If the young aren’t streaming into brick and mortar casinos, Owens is not surprised: “Nobody drives an Oldsmobile anymore, either.”

Online gambling isn’t just bad, it’s dangerous and immoral: So argues Sheldon Adelson, CEO of the biggest gaming company in the world.

Martin D. Owens, a California attorney specializing in the law of Internet and interactive gaming (and co-author of “Internet Gaming Law” with Professor Nelson Rose of Whittier Law School) calls Adelson’s worries and objections preposterous.

Online gaming’s potential pernicious effects on children, teenagers and adults with gambling problems constitute, in his view, “a societal train wreck waiting to happen.”

“Mr. Age-verification? Protecting problem gamblers? Those can be addressed on the Internet even better than in one of Mr. All of the perceived evils have been addressed through appropriate oversight–greater oversight and regulation than what’s available in a brick-and-mortar setting see here


Why America is betting big on bullet trains

Congressional Democrats charge that recent budget cuts have hurt safety. In fiscal 2014, the government-owned company suffered an operating loss of $227 million on $3.2 billion in revenues. (Too much speed contributed to the fatal Amtrak regional train crash in May.) By comparison Shanghai’s maglev train hits a high of 268 mph and averages 143 mph. Its maximum speed: 125 mph.

China is not alone in its high-speed push. By contrast, its busy Northeast corridor, where 11.4 million passengers traveled along the 456-mile route in 2014, posted an operating profit. Amtrak’s electrified trains in the Northeast corridor are better fuel misers than its diesels and can feed energy captured from regenerative braking back to the electrical grid.

How to pay for high-speed rail

Some ­private investors in Texas and Florida think they can make bullet trains profitable.

A private company named Texas Central Partners plans to build a $10 billion, for-profit high-speed-train system that will travel the 240-mile route between Dallas and Houston in under 90 minutes. Elsewhere, the private sector is stepping in. Yes, we have Amtrak’s Acela Express, which runs from Boston to Washington, D.C., but that passenger train only occasionally hits 150 miles per hour–its average speed is a paltry 68 mph. The train does hit 150 mph along a few stretches of straight track, but that hardly warrants the tag bullet train. But going by rail is a steal compared with driving the family sedan, which costs a whopping 61¢ a mile.

The sunshine state embraces high-speed rail

Over the past decade or so, China has built the world’s biggest high-speed-train network, with some 6,900 miles of track. Despite complaints from some lawmakers that Europe’s high-speed train system is too expensive and too subsidized, the continent is moving forward with a flourish. Scheduled to roll in 2017, the train will travel the 235-mile route at an average speed of 81 mph. The private companies moving into markets such as Florida and Texas see the sweet spot for high-speed rail to be trips of around 400 miles or less.

California’s bold bid for high-speed rail

California's bold bid for high-speed rail

If america is going to bite the bullet on bullet trains, it can’t depend on the federal government for much help. Republicans say that’s absurd.

Amtrak's Acela wants to boost its speed

California’s high-speed-rail system, currently under construction, will link Los Angeles with San Francisco and make the 410-mile trek in under three hours with top speeds of more than 200 mph. It would need to secure tricky rights of way for new tracks and billions in new federal funding –no easy task.

California plans to construct a high-speed system from Los Angeles to San Fran­cisco, using private and state funds (including a proposal to use some of the state’s carbon cap-and-trade revenue), plus some leftover federal stimulus dollars. Its long routes, however, such as from New York City to the West Coast can’t compete with airlines either in terms of time or cost and are money losers. Amtrak says three-hour service between Boston and D.C. The system, slated to open in 2021, will employ a fleet of Japan’s N700 bullet trains. One possibility for boosting speed would be to upgrade its lines and build a new track through central Connecticut to avoid the current curves along the coastline. By comparison, the U.S. With this kind of antipathy toward the program, funding for Amtrak has been flat at best (see chart below), which leaves few if any new funds available to build high-speed systems.

Where bullet trains make the most sense in a big country

Amtrak, with 21,300 miles of rail, covers most of the nation. Since the service was first launched in 2007, the number of passengers riding each day has risen from 237,000 to 2.5 million last year, making it the heaviest trafficked in the world. To make high-speed pay, private companies building such railroads will likely have to develop land around their train stations to make it work financially.” That’s a model that has worked well in Asia, so why not here?

Ridership for Amtrak Selected Stations, 2014 Map by Nicolas Rapp

The Philadelphia Amtrak crash in May that killed eight and injured many more suggests that the nation is skimping on infrastructure spending, and train safety is one victim. To give you an idea of the scale, China is investing more than $128 billion in domestic railway construction in 2015, compared with about $100 billion in 2014. Top speed? A sleek 205 mph.

Traveling by train, however, is on the pricey side, costing on average 31¢ per passenger mile, compared with 13¢ for flying. Expect instead to see them on heavily traveled urban corridors.

You can talk all you want about Teslas, but when it comes to overall energy efficiency, Amtrak beats other modes of transport hands down. Since Amtrak was founded in 1970, the railroad and Congress have had a contentious relationship, with charges flying that the highly subsidized company is nothing but a money-losing boondoggle. In California there’s an expectation the train will be profitable because there’s a big market for travel on that corridor. Poland introduced its first high-speed service between Warsaw and Kraków; Serbia plans a fast line from Belgrade to Budapest.

Americans love cars, which goes a long way to explain why we’ve failed to build a serious high-speed-rail network. (An artist’s version of one is below.) The state eventually plans to extend the system to Sacramento and San Diego, totaling 800 miles with up to 24 stations.

The challenge with high-speed rail is that America is a vast nation. Private money also backs a Miami-to-Orlando line, with service to begin see here
