There are many benefits to outdoor learning; so many in fact, that it might surprise you. It’s a broad term, but in most prep schools it essentially involves exploration of the natural world, experimenting, going on adventures and discovering new things that cannot be found indoors.

Not all young people are lucky enough to have their own garden, so the availability of outdoor learning at school gives them the opportunity to play outside and get some fresh air and exercise in a safe and controlled environment.  Children often have too much exposure to smartphones, tablets and other digital devices, which might actually lead to both physical and psychological issues. As well as supporting the school curriculum, outdoor learning can also involve activities such as:

Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, is a natural remedy for a variety of ailments and chronic pain. It is derived from the cannabis plant and has also been found in breast milk, which reinforces the fact that cannabidiol is naturally occurring. Some people confuse this health product with tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, but CBD does not have any of the mind-altering effects that are caused by the THC in marijuana. Much of the stigma associated with cannabis is fading away as more people discover the health benefits of CBD and realize that it does not produce the "high" feeling that THC causes.

This plant-based remedy has long been used to treat pain, anxiety, and PTSD. It has also been used as a supplement to aid with sleep and stress reduction. Now, it is becoming more commonly recommended by healthcare professionals as a treatment for more serious conditions. For example, many parents have shared their positive experiences with CBD oil helping to stop or reduce the occurrence of seizures in their children who suffer from epilepsy. In addition, cancer patients have turned to cannabis as a way to manage the side effects of debilitating chemotherapy and radiation treatments. CBD oil has also been credited with minimizing the impact of some of the symptoms of cancer.

Some analysts predict that email will be slowly replaced by messaging app services in the coming years. One of the major reasons for this potential switch is that messaging services allow for real-time communication. Email is quickly getting a reputation for being a more cumbersome way to carry on a written conversation. While there is still certainly many uses for email, messaging services are becoming more popular by the day, especially as Millennials play a more significant role in business communications.

One of the email management tools that has the potential to preserve emails role in business communications is Unroll.me. This is a relatively new and free service that helps users unsubscribe from multiple email senders at the same time. Some users might think twice before abandoning email altogether if they are able to more accurately and seamlessly monitor their email subscription lists with a service like this. Many email users find themselves receiving countless messages each day because they have subscribed to different retail sites in order to take advantage of discounts offered. Customers have exchanged their email addresses for promotions from various businesses that they actually don’t need to hear from on a regular basis. In many cases, it is simply too cumbersome and boring to go through the process of clicking on each individual email and finding the link to unsubscribe from the retailer. Now that this process has been automated for users, they are more likely to have a favorable experience using email on a daily basis. They can complete the process as many times as they find useful.

Throughout the second half of the 20th century, high levels of optimism about the ability of medical science and pharmacology to shortly abolish all disease and suffering prevailed throughout the United States. Travel back to the year 1965, and you would be likely to find that people believed that diseases like cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, and heart disease would be eradicated by the 1980s or ‘90s.
    
Fast forward to 2019, and the state of things is now quite the opposite. With major drugs ranging from Vioxx to thalidomide having been shown not to relieve suffering but to cause it, even leading to death, skepticism of Big Pharma and the drugs that it hastily pushes onto the market has never been higher.

At the same time, there are widespread substance-abuse and mental-health crises plaguing the nation, which have further exacerbated the country’s suicide epidemic. Many people blame these circumstances on the record levels of antidepressants being taken. And some who are in the know rightly claim that other far more effective treatments have long been suppressed by drug makers that want no real competition.
    
MINERAL Brings the Power of CBD Oil to Austin
It turns out that nature has produced its own line of antidepressants, appetite stimulants, analgesics, and anxiolytics. They come from the plant known as Cannabis sativa, also popularly known by the names of its various superstrains: hemp and marijuana.

The cannabis plant contains hundreds of bioactive alkaloids, the two most prominent of which are tetrahydrocannabinol, also known as THC, and cannabidiol, a potent compound that has been identified as a major cause of cannabis’ many therapeutic effects.

In a strange and miraculous coincidence, these compounds almost perfectly mimic a class of neurotransmitters in the human brain that are called, appropriately, endocannabinoids. These neurotransmitters are as important as any others, helping to regulate mood, drive sleep cycles, mediate pain sensations, and allow people to focus on sustained complex tasks. In short, cannabis and its derivatives are nature’s antidepressants, pain relievers, anxiety meds, and cardiovascular-health medicines all rolled into one convenient package.

Big Pharma Suppressed These Miracle Compounds, Until Now
This is why the opening of MINERAL, one of Austin’s first full-spectrum plant extract sellers, is a big step toward bringing natural and effective hemp therapeutics like CBD oil to Austin.

With the passage of a new law in Texas that explicitly legalizes hemp, a variety of Cannabis sativa that contains virtually no THC, the many potent effects of this plant and its extracts are now available to the general public. This means that Austin residents now have a powerful alternate means of experiencing proven therapeutic results without having to turn to the often dangerous chemicals offered by Big Pharma.

A quick glance at MINERAL’s product list will give an idea of what these products can offer.

For example, the company’s blend known as FOCUS helps relieve anxiety while helping users focus on tasks at hand. Like every MINERAL product, it also contains a highly unique blend of terpenes, which give FOCUS hints of white jasmine, rosemary, and lemon. This product could be used as an all-natural substitute for pharmaceutical anxiolytics and medications that improve attention and focus. And the best news is that, unlike its pharmaceutical counterparts, FOCUS has no serious side effects.

Another example of a MINERAL product illustrates how cannabinoids can be carefully formulated for desired effects. The company’s MAISON is specially blended to promote rejuvenation of the body at the cellular level. It can provide excellent results to athletes who wish to improve recovery times from workouts, as well as those who may need faster skin rejuvenation from damage secondary to sun exposure.

Choosing a university course is a huge decision for teenagers and one that can affect the rest of their lives. Not only is it a major financial investment, it also helps prepare young people for their future career. With that said, it’s important for parents to get involved with the decision making process to help ease the pressure. A senior school in Surrey have put together the following information for parents who are unsure how to help their child determine which course is best.

When children are young, their friends are typically chosen by their parents and they tend to just be happy to have a little playmate without being emotionally invested in the relationship. As children age, however, their friendships become more complex; they start to base relationships on trust and greater intimacy. Although these relationships seem more mature, they are still quite fluid and some issues will arise from time to time. It’s important for parents to be ready for these little bumps in the road and do their best to help their child get through it. Read on for some advice from an independent school in Hertfordshire.

Shaquille O'Neal has gone from being one of the biggest men in pro sports to being THE biggest pizza spokesman on the planet. Shaquille O'Neal made headlines around the country when it was announced that the former NBA big man and TV analyst was partnering up with Papa John's. Shaq will be incorporated into a string of franchises that seek to utilize the famous Hall of Famer's charisma and athletic past in order to fundamentally redesign operations. Right now, reports are showing that Shaq will become the owner of nine franchises around the country. The first of the pizza franchises to open under the Shaq redesign will be on the Georgia Tech main campus, right near the TNT Studio that Shaq works at for 'Inside the NBA'.

For Shaq, the partnership with the famous pizza chain makes plenty of sense. Since retiring from the NBA, Shaq has been one of the most enterprising athletic entrepreneurs in the world.
