6 Tips for Making Your Construction Site Safer

Working as a construction worker is almost similar to being a superhero. Each day you are entrusted with the responsibility of bearing heavy loads and using expensive equipment. Squatting on scaffolds and riding in cranes puts you so high up in the sky that you have the feeling you are flying. What makes your job extraordinary and enjoyable can also put a lot of stress on you. If you don’t take care, you can incur injuries while working. Here are some safety tips to follow to avoid common injury and stress on the construction site.

1. Lift objects properly

As a construction worker, backaches are your primary enemy. It is easy to get injuries while carrying heavy loads, but you can avoid this hazard altogether. Always bend your knees so that you don’t twist to the side while lifting. For a better balance, put one foot in front of the other.

2. Use ergonomic portable and high-powered tools

Tools are meant to make your work simpler. You may not realize it, but frequent use of poorly designed tools can make you develop conditions such as trigger finger, white finger, carpal tunnel syndrome, and tendonitis. Even powered tools can make you develop serious problems due to their excessive noise and high vibration. Thus, as an employer or supervisor, ensure the tools you select for your workers have a long trigger and low vibration levels. For the hand tools, safety coordinators or employers must select those that require less force and don’t put a strain on the hand when held tight. The hand tools must also be balanced, and not conduct electricity or heat.

Hairpieces for Hair Loss

Hair loss can be devastating. Whether you lose some or all of your hair, it can be hard to deal with the realities of a changed appearance. Adding in hairpieces and wearing wigs can boost your confidence and give you back the tresses you have always loved. There are hairpieces for all hair loss situations and finding one is a simple process.

Thinning Hair

If you have thinning hair, adding in hairpieces can give you fullness and body. These hairpieces come in a variety of textures, styles and colors. You can find curly hairpieces to add fullness at the crown of your head or long flowing locks to add length. Add in darker pieces to make your hair look even fuller. When it comes to thinning hair, extensions can do wonders for your look.

Choosing Artistic Cosmetics and Makeup Accessories

Women who like to wear cosmetics often want their makeup to look flawless and beautiful. Because mass produced brushes and stencils often lack the quality that women want, they may want to invest in an airbrush makeup kit that lets them apply their cosmetics to their satisfaction. This kit also lets them avoid common makeup mistakes that could mar their appearances.

Women who are not used to applying foundation, for example, often risk ruining their appearances by not blending their colors well enough. They forget to blend their necks and jawlines, letting others know that these ladies are wearing foundations that perhaps are not best suited for their skin tones. However, with an airbrush, ladies can blend their colors better and avoid the obvious mistakes of having bare skin that is uncovered. Outsiders will not know that these women are wearing foundation.

The same kit can help women blend their eye shadow better. When women use small brushes, they sometimes risk their colors bleeding into one another or having uneven lines that are obvious and unattractive. The kit, however, allows women to airbrush the colors evenly so that the hues all blend nicely together. The overall effect is one that is flawless and smooth.

When they want to order this kit online, however, ladies may have questions that need to be answered before they buy these accessories. They can read the detailed description of the kit online or they can utilize the social media plugins to view videos or read posts about the kit. They can also create their own account online to keep track of what products they have ordered and what colors they could need to refill in the future. This convenience makes shopping for makeup and makeup accessories easier than shopping in local big box or department stores.

Buying In Bulk: Sunscreen For Large Groups

You've undoubtedly purchased sunscreen in sleek tubes when you venture to the beach or pool, but all day protection takes more than just a basic tube. For large groups, such as camps and schools, sunscreen is essential for every participant each day. Buying retail sunscreen will cost the business substantial money, but there is a solution with large sunscreen orders. Bulk sunscreen allows you to offer ample coverage for all participants, especially if they forget their own tube at home.

Quarts For Smaller Groups

If you have several small groups each month for weekend nature camps, for example, try purchasing sunscreen in quart size. You can dispense it to smaller bottles, if desired, or simply keep the quart in a common area for use by all.

Emergency Visit to the Eye Doctor

When emergency arises,  the best thing to do is to consult the professional or experts immediately.  This needs to be done as soon as possible especially if your health is at risk.

I don't exactly know what happened  the other day. I just had a walk for around two  hours in our area, went home and at night,  I already had a problem with my left  eye. It started to get  itchy after our walk last Sunday. At  night, I was already rubbing it and I guess it  was  irritated.  I thought it was only a pimple that grew in my eyelid but yesterday  it became bigger.

I applied a cream last night  for infection hoping it will get better  when I woke up this morning but  it is still swollen.  After taking my breakfast today, I decided to go to the eye doctor immediately to ask for medication.  He  gave me a prescription. This eyedrop is an  antibiotic and I  need to apply it four times a day.  I hope  my swollen eye will get better soon.

I actually asked the doctor what it was but he said my eye has a sort of infection. He cannot really explain exactly what it is. While searching online,  I can probably say, this is called a stye.

According to wikipedia,   "a stye is an infection of the sebaceous glands of Zeis at the base of the eyelashes, or an infection of the apocrine sweat glands of Moll. External styes form on the outside of the lids and can be seen as small red bumps. Styes are most commonly caused by the blocking of an oil gland at the base of the eyelash. Although they are particularly common in teenagers, styes are experienced by people of all ages. Styes can be triggered by poor nutrition, sleep deprivation, lack of hygiene, lack of water, and rubbing of the eyes".

I guess that is all for now.   I  am trying  my best to go to bed  earlier now to practice a better and healthier life. I can probably avoid having a stye by  going to bed earlier. Cheers and stay happy and healthy all the time.

Foot Massage at Chinatown, Las Vegas

Yes, I always love to reminisce previous travels. One of it is Las   Vegas! I always have fun in this city. Besides some of my siblings are living there. One day, I and my sister decided to go to Chinatown. As far as I can remember, we went there to buy a simcard for my Iphone which we really did. After doing it, we proceeded to the Chinatown Outlet where you can  have a foot spa. I guess we paid around $80 for a 30 minutes spa. I am not really into it but its fine to have an experience about it.

Chinatown in Las Vegas where we had a foot spa. That was my second visit in Last Vegas last Aug- Sept. 2012.

Career in Health Care Industry

Are you still thinking which career to pursue in your life? Are you interested in a profession that is focus on the quality of life of individuals, families and communities? The right profession for you might be in the health care industry. Why not?

Our family is not really in the medical field. I only have three sisters who decided to engage in medical and health field. Two are already registered nurses in the United States of America and the other one is graduating this coming March of this year. I am glad that my sisters chose that profession because they can help improve people's lives by providing health care services.

I am convincing my two RN sisters to further their careers and take master’s degree in nursing courses. Raquel who is in Las Vegas, is planning to take online courses that is related to her career. Rose on the other hand is happy since she will be having her interview this coming Monday. She worked before as a nurse in the hospital back home in the Philippines. She just joined her husband in the US and is currently looking for job in the health care industry. Regz who will be graduating soon is planning to migrate in Australia and also want to work as a nurse.

With the changing environment of health care industry, every nurse are obliged to attend trainings, courses and seminars. It might be in the four corners of a room or by doing it online. Being a nurse is challenging. You have to deal with people in all walks of life, helping them attain a better and quality life. You help people prevent illness and injury. Nurses alleviate the suffering of individuals through diagnosis and treatment.

This is only one of the professions that you can truly be proud of and I am proud of my three sisters who chose to engage in nursing  career. Good luck to you all!

Visit to the ENT Doctor

I really don't have an appointment with the doctor last Monday. I just accompanied a friend and her daughter who had an appointment with ENT (Ear Nose and Throat) doctor, called in German language are HNO (Hals, Nase und Ohren) Arzt. My friend brought me with her to help her translate if ever she cannot understand any German words. That is the problem here in Germany because not all doctors can speak English. I had the same problem five years ago since I don't speak and understand German during those times.I really had a difficulty with communication.

That was a perfect timing last Monday and I am thankful that I accompanied my friend. Its been a long time since I wanted to visit the ENT doctor due to some problems with my left ear. Sometimes, I hear some annoying sounds inside it. The doctor checked it quickly and he said that there is this so-called negative pressure in my left ear. I don't have an appointment that time, so the doctor advised me to have an appointment for next week for more intensive check-up. I hope that it is not too bad.

Health Conscious

Our system is changing especially when we are aging. Sometimes, we already feel a lot of pains in our body. I am thankful that my backpain is not anymore attacking me but sometimes I experience pain in my left shoulder. That is also the reason why I am getting conscious about my health now. As much as possible, I am trying to eat more fruits and vegetables everyday. Unless when there is a party, I can't say no to delicious foods. I also realized the importance of having insurance especially health insurance. It depends on the coverage and company of your health insurance, sometimes the benefits varies. There is this so-called NC short term health insurance especially for students. It just reminded me to convince my sister who is back to school now to get one like this. Getting ready in times of emergency is always the best defense. Right folks?

Personal Coach

I believed you have an idea of what a "Personal or Professional Coach" is doing. Last weekend, I met some friends in Berlin. One of them told me that he hired someone as his personal coach. He wanted to lose weight and that is the reason why he hired such kind of professional. He also visits the gym every week but I forgot to ask how often. I am wondering if he is also taking some muscle building supplements. I did not bother to ask him anyway. He said that he is slowly losing some excess weight now and I am happy for him. I wish to also hire one but it is not included in my budget. Even hubby is telling me if I want to enroll to a gym to also lose my extra pounds. I am still thinking about it. I guess there are still other ways to lose weight. I know one way..not eating too much! Have a wonderful day to all!

Health is The Most Important

I had a talk with a friend last time and it was quite a good one. I asked her, if ever you are given one wish, what would it be? Her answer; lots and lots of money! Why not? But if you have to ask me, I would rather say, good health always. There is a saying that says, "There is only one health but a lot of sicknesses." I hope you agree with me. Some sicknesses might include heart disease, diabetics, cerebral palsy, high blood pressure, kidney stone, migraine, cancer and many more. And yes, maybe the worst thing is when you are spiritually sick. That is also the reason why we always need to take care of our body both physically and spiritaully. Avoid vices like too much smoking and drinking alcohols. Envy, gluttony and lust can also be forms of spiritual sickness which are not really good. I wish each and everyone a good health always!

Vitamins Are Good

I am not an expert about this topic but I know some about it. Back during school days, we were taught that fruits and vegetables are one of the best sources of vitamins and minerals. For example vitamins A, B, C, D, E and some other more are needed by our body to help us stay fit and healthy. There are also minerals like calcium and magnesium which are needed by our muscles and bones for proper functioning and maybe to help prevent some diseases and malfunction. For women’s multi vitamin needs, you can find a lot of information online or you can ask your doctor about it. There are also these so-called dietary supplements which often contain vitamins to ensure that we take adequate amounts of nutrients needed by the body on a daily basis. Lastly, it is better to consult the doctor first before taking any sort of dietary supplements. The best thing to do, always include fruits and vegetables in your daily intakes. I am doing the same now.

What is Xeroderma?

I am quite confused about the difference between eczema and xeroderma. My question is; Is eczema a form of xeroderma? I know somebody who has a problem about xeroderma. I don't know but everytime I see her, her skin is always dry from arm to feet and even her scalp is also very dry. In fact she has also a dandruff. I am wondering if she is using a lotion or moisturizer to get rid of dry skin problem also known as xeroderma. I know she has the money to buy a lotion but it seems that she is too frugal to spent for her personal needs.

Skin problems like eczema can sometimes be very difficult. An immediate visit to the dermatologist to have a treatment of eczema is always recommended. Continue reading below for more information about Xeroderma.

Xeroderma, literally meaning "dry skin", is a condition involving the integumentary system, which in most cases can safely be treated with emollients and/or moisturizers. Xeroderma occurs most commonly on the scalp, lower legs, arms, the knuckles, the sides of the abdomen and thighs. Symptoms most associated with xeroderma are scaling (the visible peeling of the outer skin layer), itching and cracks in the skin.

Xeroderma is a very common condition. It happens more often in the winter where the cold air outside and the hot air inside creates a low relative humidity. This causes the skin to lose moisture and it may crack and peel. Bathing or hand washing too frequently, especially if one is using harsh soaps, may also contribute to xeroderma. Xeroderma can also be caused by a deficiency of vitamin A, vitamin D, systemic illness, severe sunburn, or some medication.

Women Need to Know This

I just read this morning in yahoo news that there is some sort of gene that keeps people stay and live for longer years. This is a study made by some scientists somewhere in the United States. I am looking for that article but it seems that I can't find it right now. To all fellow women and maybe men out there, I believed that the hot summer season is here. I would suggest that you better wear sun blocks everytime you go out from your house. Sunburns can lead to skin cancer as we all know. For those women who want to avoid fast aging signs like wrinkles especially on their face, I would suggest that you search about prototype 37c. It is said that this is a top product for wrinkle treatment. It is also said that it is better than botox. I am quite excited with this information. It means that I might prevent having wrinkles if I am already on my forty's or fifty'!

Sis Has Skin Problem

Weekend is here again. We are currently having a chaos in the house. Hubby is starting to put our new windows. He is starting right now in our bedroom. Here I am sitting in front of my computer. He only called me when he needs help. Anyway, my other sister is still having problem with her face. Her acne is still not getting better. She needs the best acne treatment right now. She had been to a dermatologist in the Philippines but the creams and medicines that the skin doctor had prescribed to her is still not effective. I hope she can get rid of her acne problem soon. More updates in my other blogs. happy weekend everyone!

Starting Over Again

I went shopping today. Me and a friend drove to Donaueinkaufszentrum, a mall in Regensburg. We should normally go out yesterday but due to some reasons, I just can't besides that I am also very busy. On the way to Regensburg, we have been talking about health matters. I also told her that I am always starting over again and again with my diet plan. We also talked about health matters like colon cleanse, back pains, headache, menstruation and a lot more. Until we did not noticed that we are almost in Regensburg. We did not find a lot of sale in the mall. I guess the summer sale is over and we are already too late. I am still trying to buy clothing for my balikbayan boxes. I will buy tomorrow what important things that I need more and hopefully on Friday I can already start packing my Balikbayan boxes. I guess 3 to 4 are enough. I will see how many I need. Goodnight folks!

Strength of a Man, Beauty of a Woman

It's afternoon now in our place. I am finally sitting in front of my computer. I was very busy this morning during some errands. I have to go the bank for some transaction, dropped a mail in the post office, started cleaning my car to get ready for the inspection of the renewal of its registration on Friday. I am still not done cleaning it because the rain start dropping. I decided to go inside the house and cook for lunch. I am happy because I had eaten my simple but delicious lunch.

As I opened my mailbox, I read about the forwarded email of my sister from Las Vegas. I decided to post it in this site to share this beautiful words about the true beauty of a man and woman..seems interesting but these are truly wonderful it is!
I hope that we are trying to keep the real beauty in us! I always try! Have a wonderful day to all!

Strength of a Man

The strength of a man isn't seen in the width of his shoulders.
It is seen in the width of his arms that encircle you.
The strength of a man isn't in the deep tone of his voice.
It is in the gentle words he whispers..
The strength of a man isn't how many buddies he has.
It is how good a buddy he is with his kids.
The strength of a man isn't in how respected he is at work.
It is in how respected he is at home.
The strength of a man isn't in how hard he hits..
It is in how tender he touches.
The strength of a man isn't how many women he's Loved by.
It is in can he be true to one woman.
The strength of a man isn't in the weight he can lift.
It is in the burdens he can understand and overcome.

Beauty of a Woman

The beauty of a woman
Is not in the clothes she wears,
The figure she carries,
Or the way she combs her hair.
The beauty of a woman
Must be seen from her eyes,
Because that is the doorway to her heart,
The place where love resides.
The beauty of a woman
Is not in a facial mole,
But true beauty in a woman
Is reflected in her soul.
It is the caring that she lovingly gives,
The passion that she shows,
The beauty of a woman
With passing years-only grows.

Lucky is the man who is the first love of a woman,
but luckier is the woman who is the last love of a man.

Does Inadequate Sleep Help Lose Some Weight?

I really don't know guys if the question in my title is right. I would appreciate any idea out there. It's been two days now that I don't have a good sleep. I don't know if it is the effect of the antibiotic that I took a couple of days ago for my cough and cold. Or maybe because my hubby is snoring to loud that I could not sleep. I can transfer to the other two rooms but I rather stay in our sleeping room. Back to my title. I heard from some friends that one way of losing weight is having inadequate sleep. I don't know if I agree with this because what I know is that lack of sleep is not good for our body. I even read in the internet that those people who always go to sleep early have more life span compared to those who go to sleep late. I also read a lot in the internet that taking the best fat burners will help you lose excess weight. What you choose now? having inadequate sleep to lose weight or taking the best fat burners? It's up to you to decide!

Make That Face Look More Beautiful

Here is a health and beauty tip especially for women. Do you usually wear make-up when you go out from your home? Do you know how to wear the right make-up for the right occasion? Here is a beauty tip on how to make look your face more beautiful!

"When applying makeup, draw attention to one part of your face: either your eyes or your lips. Wearing large amounts of lipstick and eyeshadow at the same time divides the focus and isn't very flattering. Pick one to accentuate and tone down the other."

Another tip for today, if you want to lose extra pounds, take a look at liporexall review, it might help. See you again tomorrow!

What I do sometimes is to pull my chop sticks and twist and clip it...very easy! here's a weekend beauty tip of what what you can do more with your hair..

Quick Hair Tip

If you can't get your hair to "do its thing" in the morning, invest in some hair clips and decorative sticks. It only takes a minute to twist your hair back and clip it into place, and the right hair accessories can still make your 'do look sophisticated. Use a bit of hairspray if you're worried about fly-aways.
