What is stress?
HSE defines stress as “the adverse reaction people have to excessive pressure or other types of demand placed on them”. Pressure is part and parcel of all work and helps to keep us motivated . But excessive pressure can lead to stress which undermines performance, is costly to employers and can make people ill.
Why do we need to tackle stress?
· about half a million people in the UK experience work-related stress at a level they believe is making them ill;
· up to 5 million people in the UK feel “very” or “extremely” stressed by their work; and
· a total of 12.8 million working days were lost to stress, depression and anxiety in 2004/5.
Employers should look at:
· developing appropriate and effective policy
· organising a risk assessment and benchmarking exercise
· developing appropriate training for managers and staff
· developing support structures and services as needed
Bullying at work can be grounds for compensation
There are many more causes of employee stress and depression at work.
However there is some good news. You could be entitled to reasonable compensation if you are suffering stress and depression at work or have been forced to resign from work because of undue stress which has led to depression.

You’ve probably been hearing a lot about the value of a raw foods diet. A raw food diet consists primarily of uncooked, unprocessed fruits, vegetables, sprouts, seaweed, nuts and juices. It’s a vegetarian diet, but one that rejects any animal products. Its central tenet is that cooking and processing take out the majority of essential vitamins, enzymes and nutrients that our bodies evolved to thrive on.

Fruitarians, as the word implies, eat primarily fruits, with nuts and grains as well. A fruitarian diet also includes foods like tomatoes or avocadoes, which are fruits.

Fruit is nourishing and refreshing for your health. It doesn’t clog the body’s vital arteries; better still, it actually flushes and cleanses. A fruit diet also lightens our bodies and spirits, in line with the general lightening of our planetary vibration rate which many higher sources tell us is taking place at this time.

You need to eat carefully if you choose a fruitarian diet, because it can be more of a challenge to get enough essential protein in your diet. A fruitarian eats nothing which has been killed or stolen. That supplants meat, dairy, and plants with the thousands of fruit and nut combinations on the planet. E.g., a fruitarian can eat an avocado sandwich, a coconut milk shake or the purest coconut ice cream made from the milk and meat of the fruit, veggie burgers made of lentil or bean paste or tofu, a succotash of corn, limas, peas, and tomatoes, sweets made with pure maple syrup or date sugar, pecan pies made with fruit sugars, fruit shakes made of a mixture of orange and banana, pear and peach, pomegranate, papaya, and plum. A pizza of tofu, tomato, and pepper (not pepperoni), salads of tomato, cucumber, green and red peppers (but not lettuce, cabbage, or celery), nut butters such as almond butter or tahini, hummus {chickpea paste}. In other words, fruitarian may eat fruits 99.9% of the time, but occasionally do indulge in the delicacies of other food groups.

Things To Watch Out For When Buying A Diamond

We’ve heard that diamonds are forever. But did you know that your diamond could disappear right before your very eyes? It’s true! If you’re not careful it could happen any time!
If you’re not careful, you could end up with a less-than-perfect diamond in your jewelry, or worse yet, no diamond at all! Here is why:
Dirt, grime, grease, and even water can diminish the luster of a diamond’s brilliance. In fact, the Golden Jubilee, largest diamond in the world, was once thought to be scrap was destined to be used for non-jewelry applications. However, once it was cleaned, and to everyone’s surprise, if was found to be brilliant and beautiful at 545.67 carats: the largest diamond according the Guinness World Records. It was bought by a conglomerate of Thai businessmen and given to the king of Thailand.
While your diamond may be able to withstand the build-up of dirt and grime, those impurities could diminish its beauty.
Although jewelers try to be careful, dirt and grime have caused diamonds to be improperly appraised. Even worse, that grime can end up between the diamond and the part that holds it in place. Before you know it the dirt will have worked itself between the components on your ring and your diamond will have disappeared.
Another problem from the dirt and grime build up is that because jewelry is often worn on the most sensitive areas of skin, a little dirt and grime can irritate the skin and cause a rash or infection.
It’s easy to keep your diamonds clean. Jewelers use an ultrasonic cleaner to clean their wares and you should regularly clean your jewelry with the same thing. This can be done at most fine jewelry stores.
Not only will cleaning it restore the gleam and keep you from getting a rash, it will also reduce the potential for dirt and grime diminishing the value of your diamond and making it disappear.

Nearly every person in the world has something about their physical appearance that they don’t like

The only cosmetic plastic surgery that I can rationalize is the surgery that repairs physical damage to a patient who has undergone a mastectomy or other physically scarring procedure done in connection with treating a disease. I have a few very close friends who have undergone implant surgery following radical mastectomies. It was the only way that they could feel as if their experience with cancer was completely over. By rebuilding their body to what it was before, these women could finally walk away from the life they knew as cancer patients.

Whether it is to change your body shape with liposuction or implant surgery, cosmetic plastic surgery offers many options to people who want to change how they look. You can get a nose job, a facelift, or even have eyebrows or eye makeup tattooed to your face. The advancements in cosmetic plastic surgery are frightening. It is no longer possible to look at some people and know what their natural face looks like. We have all seen images of the infamous cat woman who has had so many surgeries that she no longer looks human. It is just a fact that cosmetic plastic surgery has become very popular and pervasive.

Even with the high costs of cosmetic plastic surgery, more people than ever before are signing up. Some girls who are too young to get a drivers license are having implant surgeries. Like many women I completely understand the desire to look different than you do in your natural state. I cannot, however, understand the mentality of people who actually undergo cosmetic plastic surgery.

With all the risks associated with cosmetic plastic surgery I have a difficult time understanding why so many people opt to have it. People die all the time because of complications of cosmetic plastic surgery and yet the numbers of those who choose to have the surgeries keep going up. Where or how will it end?
