#Becoming: Michelle Obama stuns on Elle Magazine's December 2018 issue

No comments:

Michelle Obama is the cover star on December 2018 edition of ELLE magazine. The Former First lady was photographed by Miller Mobley and styled by Meredith Koop.  On Fashion, the Becoming author said, 

"I knew a little about fashion, but not a lot. As a working mother, I’d really been too busy to put much thought into what I wore. During the campaign, I’d done most of my shopping at a boutique in Chicago where I’d had the good fortune of meeting a young sales associate named Meredith Koop. Meredith, who’d been raised in St. Louis, was sharp and knowledgeable about different designers. After Barack’s election, I was able to persuade her to move to Washington and work with me as a personal aide and wardrobe stylist. Very quickly, she also became a trusted friend."

Five Easy Ways To Make Career Progress In Life

No comments:

If the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, it follows that the ten thousand hours required for professional mastery starts with a single hour. But finding time for career development can be a chore unto itself.

Fortunately, over the weekend, most of us in the United States gained an extra hour, courtesy of Daylight Savings. Rather than spend your newfound time binge-watching your favorite Netflix shows, instead try these five easy and enjoyable ways to make career progress in under 60 minutes:

1. Hit the books and break open a pod(cast).

Reading for pleasure should be part of your daily routine. It opens your world to new ideas and possibilities, keeps you current with trends in your industry (or the industry you'd like to join), and gives you interesting fodder for chatting up your colleagues and clients. Can't seem to find a daily hour to dedicate to reading? Try listening to audio books during your commute or topical podcasts to while running errands to broaden your horizons.

2. Get moving.

Like muscles, our imagination tends to atrophy when not used. Conquer both by leaving your home or office for an early morning run, a midday walk to a local park, or an after-work sweat session at the gym. Along with strengthening your body, a workout has the added benefit of clearing your mind, allowing you to find new solutions and inspiration where before you had none. Being one with nature is a great way to change your perspective, and your ability to reframe a challenging work situation. You'll also gain clarity, an essential skill for leadership.

How to Build a Successful Career at 30

3. Challenge yourself to try something new.

If you keep doing the same things, you'll never grow. Get over your fear and jump out of your comfort zone. When you challenge yourself to try something that scares you—leading a pitch to a new client, presenting your department's quarterly objectives, or asking your boss for more responsibility—you'll move beyond words to action. And when you successfully master that challenge, you'll have newfound confidence. You'll gain positive attention for your fearlessness and initiative. And your decision to take a leap of faith can be the catalyst for further growth.

4. Get social (in real life).

While I laud social media's ability to connect people from around the world, nothing beats face-to-face interactions. Instead of spending an hour on Insta, use that time to invite a connection to meet over coffee. Or better yet, grab a small group and form an informal mastermind group where each member can make introductions to other people and companies, and share their expertise and advice. Make it a goal to surround yourself with people who support and challenge you to be the best version of you, and who can help you get there. Your environment always wins; make sure your community includes the kind of people with whom you'd like to emulate, learn, and collaborate.

5. Practice self-care.

We’re constantly bombarded with messages of hard-charging executives who never sleep and entrepreneurs who proudly "hustle" 24/7. But we rarely hear the ugly aftermath of that go-go attitude: chronic stress, burnout, fizzled relationships, and disease. The truth is this: you can't pour—or perform—from an empty cup. To make serious career progress, you can't neglect your wellbeing. You must build in time to recharge your mind, body, and spirit. That means having the self-awareness to know when you're reaching your limit— and then taking action to push the reset button. By putting yourself first, you can give more to your boss, colleagues, and clients.

Five tips for Achieving a Trifecta Career

Remember, how you spend your extra hour is your choice; choose wisely.

New Technology of Water Cleaning By Sun Light

No comments:

High-energy costs are one of the main drawbacks in the process of getting clean water out of industrial waste. In accordance with information given by an article in Biomicrofluidics magazine, which was published by American Institute of Physics, a new system, which combines two different kinds of technologies, for the purpose of the pollutant substances removal process, is based on using a cheap possible energy source namely sunlight. Microfluidics, Moving water through small channels, and photocatalysis, using light for full destroying of all the dirt in this water, are lumped into one science called optofluidics.

«These two technologies were worked up parallelly, however, there are affords required to apply natural synergy between them», says the main author of the research Xuming Zhang from Hong Kong Polytechnic University. «Our results showed substantial improvements in the effectiveness of photocatalysts».

Research workers made a planar microfluidic reactor, or microreactor, which, in point of fact, represents a right-angled room, made of two glass plates covered with titanic dioxide, an active component, used in many lotions and sun-protection creams. In broad daylight, the cover turns electrons out, which are reactive with polluting matters in water; as a result, they gravitate to the bottom as non-hazardous substances. It is photocatalysis, a part of the process. A high surface region of a reactor raises a capability of the catalyzer for capturing sunlight. Even though a plate gap is not big, Zhang plans to widen square measures up to two square meters. «Our current small-scale proves a concept, however, we also increase the reactor proportionally in relation to productivity equal to 1000 litres per 1 hour», the researcher added. If the big reactor proves its efficiency soon, it will be possible to use many parallel devices, for managing industry applications for water processing and cleaning.

Reduce Morning Aches and Pains with the Right Mattress

No comments:

As you age, aches and pains become more common and interfere with your sleep. However, adequate sleep is essential for everything from the immune system to appetite control. The right mattress that supports your sleep style, height, and weight can help reduce aches and pains so you can get the sleep you need.

Sleep and Pain: A Cyclical Relationship

Sleep and pain have a tumultuous relationship because pain can interfere with your sleep. At the same time, lack of sleep can magnify pain. A 2006 study published in Sleep compared pain tolerance in participants who eight hours of sleep to those who’d only gotten four. With only four hours of sleep, pain tolerance was reduced by 25 percent.
A similar study compared pain tolerance and sensitivity in individuals who’d gotten a full eight hours of sleep to those who’d been in bed eight hours but hadn’t slept well. Again, the results showed that sleepiness increased pain sensitivity. Getting a good night’s sleep in and of itself can help reduce morning pain, but you need the right mattress to do it.

How to Find the Right Mattress

Not all mattresses are made the same. Their design may include inner springs, memory foam, latex, or a hybrid of materials and technology. To help you find the right mattress, there are five factors to consider.

1. Firmness
Firmness refers to how much “give” a mattress has when you first lie down. Mattresses are given a firmness rating between one and ten, ten being the firmest. A super-firm mattress almost feels like you’re floating above the mattress while a soft one allows the body to sink in. The right firmness for you will depend on three things, your sleep position, weight, physical ailments.
Each sleep position – stomach, side, back – works best with a different mattress firmness. For example, back sleepers do best on a medium-firm mattress, that’s a rating of five or six. Side sleepers do better with a firmness rating for four or five so that the curves of the body sink into the mattress. Stomach sleepers need a firmer mattress to prevent an arch in the back while sleeping.
However, those who weigh under 130 pounds sleep better on softer mattresses, while those over 230 pounds need a firmer mattress to support their weight.
If you’re unsure of the right mattress firmness, a medium-firm mattress (five or six rating) works for the average-size person and has been shown to alleviate low back pain.

2. Support
Support refers to how well the mattress keeps your spine in alignment. The spine should be aligned from your shoulders to your hips so the muscles fully relax.

3. Temperature Regulation
Most people sleep comfortably between 60 to 68 degrees. Some mattress types, particularly memory foam, trap heat against the body and raise the body temperature. If you sleep hot, a mattress that doesn’t allow the body to sink in provides better airflow and prevents overheating.

4. Motion Isolation
A mattress that absorbs and isolates movement will prevent nighttime disruptions from a partner or pet. Memory foam and memory foam hybrids offer some of the best motion isolation available.

5. Edge Support
Some mattresses become less comfortable the closer you get to the edge. If you sleep with a partner or frequently sit on the edge of your bed, innerspring and innerspring hybrids that incorporate innerspring technology provide excellent edge support.

The right mattress can allow you to stop an ongoing cycle of pain and sleeplessness. Better sleep means a happier, healthier you.
