When Harman Singh came across an injured boy in the street in his new home of Auckland, he broke his religious protocol without a thought to help him. Harman Singh is a Sikh and wears a turban. In the Sikh religion, a turban should not be removed unless in the privacy of one’s own home. It is a deeply intimate act. However, Singh who is originally from India, did not think twice to take his turban off to help cradle the head of 6-year-old Daejon Pahia.

Alexei Beltyukov has learned that Daejon Pahia was crossing the street when he was struck by a car. Singh, along with a solider immediately sprung into action to help the boy. Without thinking of anything other than helping, Singh used his turban to cradle the boy’s head from the pavement until help arrived. After the incident, Singh was being interviewed when a viewer noticed that his flat was lacking any furniture. Big Save Furniture stepped up and surprised Singh with a truck full of furniture to furnish his flat with. The furniture consisted of a bed, a coffee table, and a couch set.

Little Known but Effective Cholesterol Lowering Habits

It seems that more and more people these days are concerned about their cholesterol levels, the dangerous stuff that causes plaque buildup in your arteries. Trying to get your HDL (the “good” cholesterol) and LDL (the “bad” cholesterol) numbers in check has become the subject of many pharmaceutical commercials.

It’s been known for some time now that a proper diet, exercise and statin intake are the way to reaching your HDL/LDL goals. But, there are also some little known habits, that when added to your diet, can help in your fight to lower your bad cholesterol levels. While using any one of these alone may not provide much in the way or results, employing several of them together should have a larger effect. Take a look at some of these odd dietary techniques and try for yourself.

Onion extract has been shown to reduce LDL levels in rats (no human research yet), however, spices in the Indian culture are believed to have healing properties. From what Indian cooking has shown though, using both onion and garlic lowers cholesterol.

Laxatives can do more for your body than just get your plumbing moving says Crystal Hunt (You can get more tips from her on her Wiki page). It soaks up cholesterol while traveling through your stomach and intestines, preventing your body from absorbing it.

Consuming about 10 ounces of tofu a day can lower the bad cholesterol in your body by 5 to 6 percent. If eating tofu isn’t your thing, try 2 ½ cups of soymilk daily instead.

While doctors do not recommend you cut out traditional medicine in lieu of these alternatives, including several of these tricks can be a good way for someone with really high cholesterol to manage their numbers. More ideas can be found by clicking on the link above.

North American Spine: Providing Quality Care And Taking The Least Invasive Approach

North American Spine is made up of a team of specialists that provide minimally-invasive spine care. The reason the physicians focus on minimally-invasive care is because there are risks involved with major spine surgery. North American Spine offers the AccuraScope DND procedure. This is a procedure that involves inserting a small tube into the spine in order to pinpoint and treat the causes of the pain. The AccuraScope DND procedure can also be used to treat chronic neck pain.

North American Spine has recently introduced two new procedures, Curaspine and Securaspine. Both of these procedures are minimally-invasive and can alleviate spinal nerve pressure. Like the AccuraScope DND procedure, people who get Curaspine or Securaspine will be able to recover much faster than they would if they were to get traditional back surgery. The risk of complications is also much lower if one gets Curaspine or Securaspine.

Many patients who are not considered suitable patients for traditional back surgery are able to get relief from their back pain with AccuraScope DND, Curaspine or Securaspine. The mission of North American Spine is to help as many people as possible. They also provide people with the facts and information needed to make an informed decision about one’s health. The physicians believe in taking both a conservative and holistic approach.

The specialists from North American Spine recently visited Robert E. Lee Elementary School. It was Yoga Recess Day, and the specialists did yoga with the students from the school.

Qnet’s Success is People Driven

Qnet is a world renowned multi-level marketing company founded in 1998 in Hong Kong. Dr. Vijay Eswaran is a co-founder and Executive Chairman of the QI Group of Companies, of which Qnet is one. The conglomerate consists of several businesses spread out among retail and direct sales, communications, lifestyle, leisure, and luxury, to name a few. The QI Group conglomerate now includes offices in Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand, with further expansion into as many as 30 countries via subsidiaries.

Eswaran completed his higher education in esteemed universities in the UK and the USA. After working for highly respected companies such as IBM and others in the USA, Europe, Australia and Canada, he returned to Asia in the early 1990s to pursue his new career in entrepreneurship. Adding to Dr. Eswaran’s resume is his achievement as a highly respected motivational speaker on subjects from spirituality to business, which led to speaking invitations at prestigious universities.

Qnet’s proven, solidly based business model of multi-level marketing relies on high-performing individual representatives who refer the company’s products to interested parties. Typically, compensation is based on the number of sales each makes, including but not limited to, other representatives’ performance who signed up under the auspices of the referring representative. As each new representative is signed up, they are placed one level below the referring individual, eventually forming a team. Over time, the team expands, and each member receives a commission for each sale they make, including additional revenue generated by all members of the team signed up by the referring representative.

In a move to increase revenue, Qnet Ltd plans to shift its manufacturing to India and designate India as its manufacturing hub for products such as electronics and consumer goods. In addition, some of their watches are currently manufactured here, as well as the production of their energy drink, Nutriplus. Revenues from its India operations grew 100% in a single year, and officials from the company expect this trend to continue.

Keeping with Eswaran’s forward-thinking tendencies, Qnet plans to provide Indians an avenue for marketing their unique products to consumers. If the products meet the company’s quality standards, they will provide a sale platform for the product.

Which is why you are reading this article. This article contains some tips to help lessen some of the first-time mistakes, mistakes which everyone makes.

Most landlords will know their inventory at least 30-45 days ahead of time. Which is why you should start looking at least a month or two before you move. Keep your social networks open. Do you know someone who is already living in New York? Call him or her. Ask this person for some referrals. It’s best to keep your options open.

Keep on top of your credit score and financials. Most landlords in New York, specifically Manhattan, require their tenants to make at least 40 times more then the rent. Let’s say you are looking at a place that runs $2,000 a month. Your landlord is going to require you to make at least $80,000-100,000 per month. Sounds steep, doesn’t it? Well this is the way landlords work in NYC.

If you are a recent grad student, you can have a co-signer to help you out. In fact, the landlord prefers it.

Finding a roommate is a good choice. This way you can split the bill down the middle. Be careful with this option though. Too many have appeared to be on board, only to pull out at the last minute. If you know someone who is interested, have this person sign all the necessary paperwork. This way you will know for sure if he or she is really interested.

Unfortunately, this happens a lot in New York. You can’t just take someone at the word. There are a lot of tell-tale signs that a potential roommate is not interested, you just have to keep your ears and eyes peeled. Not everyone is who they say they are.

Have a check for first and last months rent all ready to go. You will also need a check for the security. Your landlord will not work with you unless you have the money all ready to go.

When you are ready to grab your first in NYC apartments for rent, call TOWN Real Estate. Town is number one in the area. They can help you out with all your needs.
