The Cooper Aerobics Center offers a variety of services on its campus, including the Cooper Clinic, a fitness center, wellness programs and a 62-room guest lodge, along with the continuing education programs of the Institute for Aerobics Research. Although an independent massage therapy business had previously leased space in the facility, it was not fully utilizing the space and was not generating a good return on investment. All of this changed with the opening of The Spa, which has become a new profit center for the Cooper Aerobics Center. Read the entire post…
From the 4th to the 8th of August 1998, Camra (Campaign for Real Ale) hosted their 21st Beer Festival at London Olympia. This is the largest volunteer-run beer festival in the world. It is host to over 300 real-ales from 150 different British brewers and over 200 foreign beers. Read the entire post…
If you listened to the predictions of the sixties, we should now be living in the “age of leisure.”
Computers would be doing all of the work — or so we were told. Newsweek, for example, predicted in a 1962 article that most of us would be working two hours a day, three days a week. Read the entire post…
I once had a friend who dreamed of being a stockbroker. As she’d talk, starry-eyed, about following stocks in the newspaper and doing her own buying and selling, I would think, I don’t know another woman who does this. Not one. Instead, most of us who are not entirely risk-averse do what seems like the smart thing: We invest in a high-performing mutual fund on the theory that the hotshot fund manager will do the stock-picking for us.
Computer scientists around the world celebrated that date in 1992 by debating whether a computer with the intelligence of HAL would ever come to exist. The general conclusion seemed to be, probably not. While research quietly continues into such exotic areas as “expert systems,” cognitive reasoning,” and neural networks,” much of the hype found with the early days of the electro-brains has all but disappeared. What remains is a plodding, careful and thoughtful march into the future.
“Open the Pod bay doors,” said astronaut Dave Bowman to HAL, the genius computer featured in the film classic, 2011: A Space Odyssey. “I’m sorry, Dave, I’m afraid I can’t do that,” came the chilling response. In 1968, HAL re-affirmed our opinion that the computer of the future was to be untrustworthy and evil.
What exactly is HGH?
HGH (Human Growth Hormone) is the most prevalent hormone generated by the pituitary gland, which is situated in the core of the human brain. The human growth hormone is emitted by the pituitary gland and helps in an array of the human body’s health performance.
Here you may question why we would want additional HGH when our bodies are producing sufficient quantities of HGH? Why is replenishing HGH necessary?
Researchers say that HGH levels start taking at dive at age 30. As we age, our levels are constantly plummeting. Indeed, a number of authorities believe that up to 80% or more of our HGH amounts are lost over time.
What does this mean to you?
It is believed by many researchers that the dip in HGH levels is what precipitates a variety of health problems and diseases associated with aging in the modern world — including weight gain, reduced energy, loss of muscle, wrinkles, less mental alertness, compromised immune system, vision issues, etc.
In short, it is thought that there is an explicit correlation between lowering levels of HGH and growing evidence of aging. With the reduction of HGH levels, the more adverse signs of aging appear.
Hence, the thinking is that to significantly counter the aging cycle, you must raise your amount of growth hormone. If this hypothesis is right, then we may arrive to the conclusion that HGH is the key to bringing back lost youth
How can we effectively increase HGH levels?
Restoring or boosting your HGH levels can be accomplished by any one of three methods:
# human growth hormone injections
# human growth hormone oral sprays
# herbal supplements which increase your body’s HGH levels naturally
What are the advantages and disadvantages of each method? Which of these methods work?
METHOD # 1: HGH Injections
Despite HGH injections possessing some flaws, information from some notable studies does affirm that HGH injections produce excellent results.
For injections, at the general rate of two or three times a day, synthetic HGH is injected into the body. One shot generally costs $25, so a daily dosage of HGH would run about $50-$75. And added to the bad news is that usage of recombinant (injectable) growth hormone must have a doctor’s consent, as the drug is dispensed by prescription only. Additionally, as a “classified disease” is not the case here, insurance will not reimburse for HGH injections. The significance of which is that you will be the responsible party for all the incurred expense!
In addition, as stated above, injections employ synthetic (artificially engineered) HGH. To put it simply, its unnatural. Whenever you put strange hormones into the body, side effects can occur.
As a matter of fact, the July 5, 1990 edition of the New England Journal of Medicine detailed a study which showed a number of patients receiving injections were hit with undesirable side effects.
Pros: Injectable HGH works well.
Cons: Injectable HGH is quite costly, painful, time-consuming, is dispensed by prescription only, and can have serious side effects.
METHOD # 2: HGH Oral Sprays
No proof has been provided to show that oral sprays are effective.
Synthetic HGH can be administered directly into the mouth via an oral spray. Nonetheless, much chronicled data appears to point to the total ineffectiveness of oral sprays.
