In Defense of the Google Dance !

In Defense of Google. Despite it's recent behavior!

Some web-masterss get hit really hard when Google does it's cursed dancing number, Recently, the hM website ( has been hit pretty bad too ...only to come back stronger after the dust settles. If you publish pages, with quality content ...Big G will figure it out. If you are up to using dirty monkey tricks ...the same applies: Google will figure it out, most of the time.

For almost three years now, hM has relied on “on-page” content, and nothing else. No effort was ever made in the way of a linking campaign. That is the long-haul way, you have to give it five years. From minus 90% to plus 300 %, that is the way it goes with big G (Google). This is a slower, but solid approach. A growth rate of 540%/year is fine with me. Publish quality content and give it time !

In a way, I am happy that Google acts this way, they are efficient at taking the cheaters and the, way too numerous, peddlers of bullstuff out of the rankings.

It should remain that way! Cheaters out!

Cooking for Weight Loss, The Low-Calorie Way.

There are three major approaches when it comes to cooking for weight loss. The

popular low-carbohydrate diets represent one of them. But they do not work for everyone.
The other popular method is the low-fat way. That does not work for every one either. Then there
is the portion size reduction. Still some people will not respond well to this.

Concentrating on calorie intake, which generally uses the three methods at the same time seems to be the most efficient method of all. Most health institutions favor low-calorie recipes over unbalanced recipes.

Monitoring Blood Pressure at Home

A Summary of Guidelines and Recommendations for Long-term Blood Pressure Monitoring at Home.

1- The type of monitor:

While the auscultatory method has been used in hospital settings for decades, it is now increasingly replaced by the use of automated oscillatory machines. The latter automatic devices are probably more suited for home use. Patients should make sure the machine they purchased has been validated and has FDA clearance. hM believes that monitors such as Omron's HEM-790IT and Lifesource's UA-767PC are examples of suitable machines for long-term use.

2- Measuring method:

The patient should be sitting comfortably and have rested for five minutes before the measurement. The patient should abstain from having smoked or having had coffee or eaten just prior to the measurement. The arm should be resting comfortably on a desk or table. The cuff should then be wrapped around the arm, at about an inch above the crease of the elbow so that the cuff is at the same level as the patient's heart. Patient should refrain from talking and stand still while blood pressure is being taken.

3- Number of measurements.

Two measurements can be taken, at a ten minute interval. This will provide more accurate and reliable records.

4- Recording the numbers.

Some machines now come with integrated software programs that record the numbers automatically and allow you to transfer the results to your PC. The data can then be emailed and shared with your doctor. Some monitors can also send the data directly to your physician, using Bluetooth technology.

For the detailed guidelines:

Harvard Study - Combination Therapy for CHD Reversal

Harvard Study - Combination Therapy (Medication + Diet) for CHD Reversal

A study by a group of experts fron a hospital associated with the Harvard Medical School brings serious support to or even validates the views that heart disease reversal diets, when combined with medication, yield better results.

The team at Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital, who conducted the study, concluded that diet helps statin drugs lower cholesterol to even lower levels and that the benefits are additive in nature. The two therapies work independently of each other, this explains why the benefits squarely add-up.  These are very good news for patients who mean to reverse the ailment.
