We hear a lot about climate change and CO2 in the atmosphere. What many people don’t realize is that wood is of great benefit for tackling this problem.

Growing trees absorb a significant amount of CO2 from the surrounding atmosphere. Once the tree is fully grown the amount of CO2 absorbed and the amount released falls into an equilibrium (or close to it). Subsequently, it is beneficial to constantly plant new trees to absorb CO2. Once grown, the harvested trees can be used for building purposes. Most of the CO2 absorbed when the tree was growing remains in the wood. The wood effectively stores the CO2 where is can do no harm. The CO2 remains stored so long as the wood is not burnt.

Other building materials such as metals and plastics are labour and process intensive, something which uses a lot of energy and produces a lot of CO2. Wood requires far less energy to produce, making is a better option for the environment. Wood also tends to have less chemical processing, though this does vary with laquours, polishes and finishes, meaning there are less harmful chemicals in the home than with some plastics. Formaldehyde is processing chemical used in many products, especially plastics. But it is not too difficult to obtain quality wood that is free from formaldehyde.

Wood is also the most cost effective building solution for frames and floors. This is a rare case of something being a short term and long term saving. Wood is a stronger material, by weight, than most materials, and being cheaper it is a short term financial saving. It is also beneficial for the environment, which is a long term saving.

 

Bamboo Flooring Perth

Bamboo also looks to be environmentally beneficial; it also soaks up CO2 form the air. As it grows at a very fast rate, taking only 7 years to harvest, it may prove to be the most popular option for future use. How much CO2 is absorbs is still being studied; the shorter growing time may mean that it absorbs less Co2 over the course of its shorter lifespan. Yet even the most minimal estimates would still be quite beneficial.

Nutrition

Nutrition and Taekwondo Training

We are all both mind and body, two things constantly affecting each other through their close connection. Our mental state affects our ability to perform physically, the state of our physical body can affect our mental abilities. One important factor for both our physical and mental performance is the nutrition in our diet.

 

The benefits of a good diet are often not appreciated till the diet is actually practiced. It is easy to consider our compromised health to be normal rather than the side effect of poor nutrition.

 

Advantages of good diet when doing martial arts include;

  • Lower body fat, which is beneficial for speed.
  • Faster reflexes, a mental and physical aspect of martial arts.
  • Clearer thought.
  • More rapid improvement through training.
  • Significantly improved endurance.
  • Greatly improved immune system.
  • Better mood.

 

It is not difficult to know about the right food to eat, though it can be difficult to stick to the right food. Avoid all processed food and stick to food as it occurs in nature. This means steak and chicken rather than hotdogs or pastry. Cook fresh vegetables and eat fruit. We should know to stay away from junk food.

 

It can be a good practice to eat smaller meals every 2-3 hours rather than the traditional habit of eating larger meals three times per day.

 

Taekwondo Sydney

Drinking plenty of water, eating what we know is a healthy diet, and training well make all the different to martial arts and taekwondo training. We live better lives through doing things well.

Mouth Breathing

Our bodies naturally breathe through the nose. While it is quite possible to breathe through our mouths it is not optimal, and mouth breathing has been linked to many health problems, both major and minor. Mouth breathing in children can compromise proper development.

Mouth breathing may occur because an individual cannot breathe well through their nose. This might be because of enlarged tonsils, nasal polyps, any of several disruptions to the airways, or because of a chronic allergy.

Children who habitually mouth breathe can compromise their lower jaw and dental development; they hold their tongue in the wrong place and keep their jaw open, leading them to form longer faces and misaligned teeth. Mouth breathing causes some facial muscles to develop at the expense of others.

 

Nasal breathing nose is necessary for the production of Nitric oxide, something required for appropriate childhood growth, oxygen levels, blood pressure, cognitive functioning and general wellbeing. Mouth breathers will compromise all these areas of their life.

 

Significantly for teeth, breathing through the mouth causes the teeth to dry out. This lack of saliva, as well as being uncomfortable, significantly increases problems with decay.

 

Even if the cause of the mouth breathing is treated individuals may find they continue their habit of breathing through their mouth. Retraining may be required.

 

Dental Auburn

It is best to address breathing problems while an individual is still young, lest the breathing issues affect their development. If you notice a dry mouth, night-time snoring or simply become aware of mouth breathing, then talk to your Shine Newington dentist about any concerns.

We look after many surrounding areas, including Ermington dental patients and Dental Wentworth point clients.

Hints For a Heathier Life

Eating a better diet makes all the difference. Even if we only feel a slight improvement it is worth the effort.  A healthier system improves every aspect of our life.

 

Make things convenient for yourself.

People often complain they don’t have the time, which is a semi-valid issue. Or else, they have trouble motivating themselves. But this is our heath we are taking about; making time to improve our health means we can do everything else a little better.

 

Try preparing things to use beforehand. Cut up some vegetables and fruit and leave them in the fridge ready to be blended in the morning. You may feel this is a lot of trouble in the morning, but if it’s ready to go you find there is minimal effort. Drinking some vegetable/fruit juice in the morning is a solid way to improve your health.

 

Most processes food is of poor quality, the exceptions being foods specifically designed to be healthy. Superfoods smoothie mix is made from organic ingredients, and is free from preservatives. This avoids all the problems associated with other convenient foods.

Do and Don’ of Hydrosupply Floor Heating

With Hydronic underfloor heating always:

  • Make sure there is a lifetime warranty. Whether it is water or electrical heating the system should work for the life of the house.
  • Before anything, look at the type of flooring you have, or intend to have. Underfloor heating is suitable with almost any surface, but some are more suitable than others.
  • Look at underfloor heating DIY kits. These are custom designed and include all the Hydronic controls and valves needed for your particular home situation.
  • Consider Solar hydronic heating, which will be a huge saving in the long term.
  • Give preference to a wet back boiler, which expose more water to the heating surface, subsequently proving more efficient.
  • Check the level of technical support. It is good to know that expertise and Hydronic supplies are there in the unlikely event of an emergency.
  • Consider whether you want an advanced system that automatically adjusts to your lifestyle the seasonal conditions or just some controls for basic heating.
  • Always get advice and an estimate beforehand.

 

Never

  • Never Compromise on quality, or make the mistake of thinking you can add more in the future. Underfloor heating is a permanent part of the house – install the system you will be wanting to use for decades ahead.
  • Never exceed 27 degrees calcium on the Underfloor heating thermostat. This should be more than worm enough.

Martial Arts Quotes

Knowledge and mental attitude are part of any physical training, especially Martial arts training. A few insights, few good quotes can mean we approach our training in a more effective manner.

 

“By knowing things that exist, you can know that which does not exist.”

In the void is virtue, and no evil. Wisdom has existence, principle has existence, the Way has existence, spirit is nothingness.”

Miyamoto Musashi – The Book of Five rings

 

“Training is one of the most neglected phases of athletics. Too much time is given to the development of skill and too little to the development of the individual for participation. …

“Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves.

Bruce Lee

 

“In the struggle between the stone and water, in time, the water wins”

“Fall down 7 times, get up 8 times.”

 

Japanese Proverbs

“Use your head, or somebody else might.”

“The more you sweat in practice the less you bleed in practice”

Anon

“There is no finish line. When you reach one goal, fine a new one”

Chuck Norris

 

Karate is a form of martial arts in which people who have had years and years of training can, using only their hands and feet, make some of the worst movies in the history of the world.

— Dave Barry

The Most Popular Korean Dishes

According to a few travel surveys the most popular Korean dishes, at least with visitors to the country, include:

 

Gimbap

Resembling Japanese Sushi this dish is half familiar to modern westerners, though it probably would have been considered strange before the 1980s. It did in fact develop from the Japanese seaweed roll, but the ingredients are Korean. Perhaps a little unadventurous, this is tasty in all its different varieties.

 

Bibimbap

This lunch-in-a-bowl was once a royal dish, but now the common people can eat like kings! It is a simple yet healthy mix of rice, vegetables, beef and egg, with a little sesame oil and chilli paste.

 

Doenjang

Soy sauce may be ubiquitous in Asian food, but it is actually a by-product of Doenjang. This is not a food insolation but a paste included in many other dishes. If you approach it like vegemite you will soon understand the appeal.

 

Haemul Pajeon

Somewhere between an omelette and a pancake, with the toppings from a pizza. There is nothing unfamiliar about any of these things, but the combination is rather unique.

 

Ssam

This is simply leafy vegetables wrapped around a filling, usually pork. A pleasant combination.

 

Kimchi

This is a staple food in Korean, and the national dish. It may not be the single most popular dish with tourists, but it comes very close. As spicy tasting cuisine is fairly universal, along with fermentation, so this popularity should not be too surprising. The benefits Kimchi provides to our immune system are a bonus.

 

Korean Buffet Sydney

Any Korean barbecue Sydney has, or any Korean Buffet, should have all these dishes. Some people enjoy all of them. Everybody finds they enjoy at least a few.

What We Have Inside Us

The human body is a complex system. And while we are far from knowing all the details of how it works we do know that feeding it correctly helps it to function properly. The optimal way to feed our body is still not fully understood, but natural ingredients seem to make all the difference. Antioxidants have also been shown to be highly beneficial.

Antioxidants
The cells in our body are complex systems made of complex molecules. Damage to these cells and molecules breaks down the very materials from which our bodies are made; this is obviously unhealthy. Oxidation is one form of cell/molecule damage. Oxidised molecules lose an electron, which makes it easier for them to chemically react with other substances. This is rather like the rusting of metal, only it occurs inside our bodies. Antioxidants, as the name implies, prevents this problem. With antioxidants the cells and molecules of the body suffer far less oxidization, and only react in way that are healthy for correct body functioning.

Superfood Smoothies Australia
Superfoods smoothie mix has many natural ingredients, including many antioxidants. The combination of these ingredients keeps our bodies functioning optimally for much longer.

Piping Matters For Oil

Oil was once relatively cheap. Early cars had tiny engines that ran on ‘motor spirit’ (which we call ‘petrol’ or ‘gas’), and the number of people driving was quite low. So for the early years of motoring history it was quite possible to supply the world’s needs using only oil in easy to access locations. But since then demands have greatly increased, and the easy to access oil locations have long since dried up.

 

Another change is the quality of the oil. It is still possible to extract good petrol from today’s oil, but much of the crude oil has high sulphur or CO2 content, making it corrosive. To prevent this causing problems the crude oil must be transported through pipes that can resist this corrosion.

 

Cladding Pipe

Cladding pipe material greatly prevents corrosion issues when transporting crude oil and gas. This is due to both the pipe manufacturing material and the way the pips fit together. At present it is estimated that corrosion in the Oil, gas and petrochemical industries costs about one trillion dollars annually. Corrosion in other industries is slightly higher. Use of cladding pipe will significantly reduce the costs connected with this corrosion problem. The added advantage is that the cladding pipe material will last for many years to come.
