Markus Rothkranz Should You Take Enzymes?

There has been some confusion about enzymes. How much enzymes should your body absorb on a daily basis and can enzymes be bad for you? According to Markus Rothkranz there are several factors that should be contemplated when taking enzymes. Adding enzymes to your daily health habits must be carefully considered. The amount an individual consumes of enzymes must be based on their weight and health goals.

One important fact to note is the eating enzymes is not bad for the human body and the body can not overdose on enzymes. The human body is in need of enzymes for everything. Enzymes are not only helpful when it comes to digestion, but can also assist in a variety of other areas. When enzymes are taken on an empty stomach the enzymes are able to improve digestion and healing. However, the benefit of enzymes can be severely decreased based on the types of food you consume.

The main goal of eating enzymes it to break down food. Foods such as fiber are broken down by enzymes in order to make the material easily digestible and absorbable by your body. The ability to absorb enzymes can be both good and bad. Ingesting enzymes and proteins is especially helpful for those who are body building. Consuming these forms of nutrients can improve a bodybuilder’s muscular system by feeding the protein. Which is beneficial to a bodybuilder who is focused on building mass.

Nevertheless, this is not the case for most individuals. Most individuals are focused on losing weight, which can be negatively impacted by consuming large quantities of enzymes. Large amounts of enzymes can also have a negative impact for those who are eating junk food. Junk food contains things that are harmful to the body. Eating enzymes and bad food will only increase the rate at which these bad foods are absorbed into your system.

Markus Rothkranz also mentioned that eating a vast amount of enzyme should not be a long-term strategy. The human body creates its own enzymes. Manually consuming enzymes may decrease the natural production of enzymes. Which also has a negative impact on hormone production. Eating raw foods is the best step to take to naturally increase enzyme production.

Get The Best Price For Your Home With The 990 Company

Selling a house requires many skills. People who want to sell their homes must be aware of many aspects of the home selling process. Those who are selling their homes must be able to find a qualified buyer and then make sure that the house they own can be transferred from their ownership to the hands of the new buyers. They must also be aware of many other aspects of home selling such as exactly how to price the house in order to attract the highest number of qualified buyers. A seller will also typically need to purchase another house to live in, making it important for the seller to find a new house of their own while at the same time selling their old house.

When selling a house, many people find that the right help is imperative. A skilled real estate agent can make the difference between a house that sells for the highest possible price and a house that may linger on the market for longer than desired. Working with an agent from The 990 Company can be the ideal way to sell a house as easily as possible even in a down market when sellers may be at a disadvantage.

Laurene Powell Jobs Offers Advice and Her Own Experiences as a Businesswoman and Entrepreneur

Despite rarely speaking in public Laurene Powell Jobs, the widow of Apple founder Steve Jobs was interviewed on stage at Stanford in a bid to raise awareness on a variety of issues surrounding the business and entrepreneurship, Forbes reports. Powell Jobs attended Stanford Business School and returned to be interviewed by Entrepreneurship professor Thomas Byers about her experiences as as an entrepreneur and about her experiences working in the not for profit sector.

During the interview Powell Jobs gave her view on a number of issues, including immigration reform, but also spoke about her own experiences in the not for profit sector. The interview allowed Powell Jobs to explain how working in the not for profit sector did not provide the monetary rewards available in for profit industries. However, she did remind the audience of Stanford students that the rewards for working in the not for profit arena were high in terms of personal achievement and an increased level of self worth. The founder of College Track explained she felt the financial sector on Wall Street should provide a small amount of their profits as an incentive for those in the not for profit sector to achieve success as social entrepreneurs.

Powell Jobs was also asked about her own experiences of gender inequality within the workplace, she answered by stating she had felt some form of machismo in her period working as a Wall Street trader. The entrepreneur who is thought to be worth more than $19 billion stated she had been out of the financial sector for many years and could not provide an adequate answer because of her lack of recent experiences.

Obama to Ask Congress for Use of Force Authorization Against ISIS

In a move that will be both legal and controversial, President Obama announced that he will be formally asking Congress to grant him an authorization to use force against the terrorist group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS). Thus far, the president has been conducting air sorties against ISIS targets, but lacks the congressional authorization to do so. The president has been using the legislation Congress granted to President George W. Bush after the September 11, 2001 attacks. However, that legislation dealt with Al Qaida and the nations granting it safe haven. Legal experts believe that the president is distorting legal authorization by using the 2001 authorization to conduct an air war against ISIS in Syria.

According to Brian Torchin and digitaljournal.com, this move will prove highly controversial for President Obama. For starters, Democrats are loath to conduct another war. The president also prefers to conduct operations in a noncommittal manner to minimize scrutiny over his actions. By requesting congressional authorization, he will finally have to present congress with a strategy for fighting ISIS. House Speaker John Boehner affirmed that he will support the president in the authorization bill. Boehner acknowledged that it is not appropriate to bind the president to a limited set of actions. This means that the possibility of placing troops on the ground will be part of the bill. This will place the president in the uncomfortable position of having to plead out his case to the American people.

Mark Ahn Speaks On New Leadership Trends

Mark Ahn is an individual in the world of entrepreneurship that has really pushed the industry forward. His experience in the military, academia, and business give him a very unique and fresh perspective on the world of leadership. Mark Ahn has been observing the different styles of leadership in the world of business and there are some remarkable things that he has come to learn. He has spoken on some incredible new trends in leadership that are bound to push the world of entrepreneurship forward.

In the world of leadership, Mark Ahn states that you must be able to learn from those who have come before you. If you are in a leadership position where you have those who have been a part of the organization longer than you, you should listen to what they have to say. The information you can receive from individuals who have come before you is priceless.

Leading with integrity is something that Mark Ahn claims to be one of the most important aspects of effective leadership. If you are not leading with integrity, your employees will have no motivation to follow a corrupt leader. Individuals have their own moral code, and it is very hard to try and get them to follow a leader who does not have a strong moral code of their own.

PR Newswire also reports that Mark Ahn is very adamant about leading by example. If you want your organization to run a certain way, run your own life that way. You will be able to much more easily portray ideas and beliefs to your employees if that is the way you are living your own life.

Remaining humble is something that is very important to do as well. No one wants to follow an arrogant leader. This is very important in remaining an effective leader.

North American Spine Rings In Six Years Of Helping Patients

North American Spine has released a report through PR Newswire, and picked up by Becker’s Spine Review, that states that they have been helping patients with back, neck, and spine problems, for over six years now. The Dallas, Texas-based company is celebrating six years of helping their patients to recover from back and neck pains. Although the company is based primarily in Dallas, Texas, they have other locations in different areas, which receive many different patients, from different demographics. The help that North American Spine has given its patients is invaluable, as shown by country music singer, and also songwriter, Larry Gatlin.

After suffering from leg pains for over 47 years, Larry went to a North American Spine, in order to help ease the pain he’d been feeling for so long. He now claims that he only has some soreness in his leg, which is much better, compared to the large amounts of pain he used to be in. He claims that North American Spine has changed his life for the better, and he’s grateful for what they’ve done for him. There are many success stories such as Larry’s, because North American Spine has treated over 8000 patients to date.

With an over 83% success rate, North American Spine has had great success with their AccuraScope procedures. Many are suffering from back, spine, and neck pain, which plagues them on a daily basis. When the pain becomes chronic, meaning that it lasts for six months or more, it is problematic, and surgery may be required. Although many people suffer from back pain at one point or another in their life, chronic back pain is not normal, and needs the attention of a doctor. Many have sought out North American Spine, in order to permanently relieve the pain they are seeing on a daily basis.

Dr. Darren Schuhmacher, Who also works with North American Spine, has released a statement, stating that the work that North American Spine is doing, is revolutionary. He also states that the procedures performed, can provide lasting relief for those suffering from pain. The AcuraScope procedure only requires a very small incision, in order to insert the scope, in order to see inside the person’s back or neck, and determine what the problem is. The surgery lasts less than 45 minutes, and it’s an outpatient procedure. With such a high success rate, it’s understandable why North American Spine is celebrating six years of helping patients to live pain free.

Texting May Be Causing Serious Damage To Your Spine

When a person bends their neck forward and down, it begins putting pressure on the cervical spine. The human head, when in upright position is about twelve pounds; however when bending head to look at something like a smartphone, weight pressure increases. The increase ranges from the twelve pounds when upright to about 27 pounds at a 15 degree angle, to 40 pounds at 30 degree angle to almost 60 pounds at a 60 degree angle. This posture, over time will lead to what is being called ‘text neck’. This story was passed on to me by Vijay Eswaran.
This is a common posture when staring at a smartphone, and millions are doing it every day. Research done on the stresses in the cervical spine say this posture can lead to early wear-and-tear on the spine. This stress can lead to degeneration and could even require surgery. Researchers are calling it an epidemic due to how common it is becoming. If you look around you will see how many people have their heads down to perform some function on their smartphones, mostly texting.
To compare how much pressure the 60 degree angle causes to your spine, imagine having an eight year old child around your neck. The average person spends two to four hours per day bending their head to read email, text or to check their social media sites. When this time is added up’ it’s 700 to 1400 hours per year they are applying stress to their spines.
Some medical experts have been warning people for years that for every inch they tilt their head forward, they double the pressure on their spine. A comparison to this bend would be to bend your finger all the way back and hold it in that position for about an hour.
Not only is the concern to the spine; but it can also lead to reduced lung capacity, headaches, depression, heart disease and neurological issues.
It would be almost impossible to reverse the technology devices now being used; however we do need to change the way we look at them. People need to look at their phones with a more neutral spine.

Laurene Powell Jobs Is Quietly Getting Political

Laurene Powell Jobs, the widow of Steve Jobs kept a low profile as a philanthropist and sometime political donor during her marriage to the Apple co-founder. Since his death however, she has begun to speak out publicly on several political issues, including the need for immigration reform. She has been a particularly strong supporter of the DREAM Act.

The bill, which would grant residency to immigrants brought into the U.S. illegally as minors has failed to pass Congress several times. Earlier this year, Powell joined filmmaker Davis Guggenheim to promote his documentary film, “The Dream Is Now” which was shown to members of Congress. She compared the situation of young illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as infants or small children as akin to being in “purgatory”.

In addition to her very public stance in favor of the DREAM Act, Powell Jobs founded the Emerson Collective, an organization that supports social reform as well as conservation by way of grants, investments and partnerships. She is also the co-founder of College Track, which helps minority and low-income children prepare for, attend and graduate from college. The organization’s official website states that over 90% of students in the program go on to college. It was through College Track that her interest in passage of the DREAM Act began.

Unlike Steve Jobs, who shied away from political and charitable causes, Powell Jobs has emerged as a major political donor. Among the candidates she’s supported are California Attorney General Kamala Harris, Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom as well as out of state candidate Cory Booker of New Jersey. All are Democrats.

Just months after her husband’s death, Powell Jobs was seated next to First Lady Michelle Obama during the President’s 2012 State of the Union address. She has publicly praised President Obama on several occasions, including during the drawn out congressional budget battles and efforts to pass ObamaCare.

Forbes named Powell Jobs the richest woman in Silicon Valley with an estimated net worth of $17 billion. She is also the largest shareholder in the Walt Disney Company. Many of her public appearances and interviews have been controlled, but they have also become much more frequent since the death of her husband. See a piece of one of her interviews about her husband’s death here. Some would consider her an activist, others a fundraiser. She doesn’t seem to fit into any one role, but Washington is certainly taking notice of Laurene Powell Jobs.

The Quintessential Leadership of Women in the Movie Industry

With this year’s release of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, there are three lead and co-lead characters which could have, if not already written in the series’ books, easily been made into male characters, but were not. Is the movie industry, a very important and societal influencing media outlet, finally getting out from the limiting restraints of hiring mostly male actors for lead action roles? Mockingjay Part 1 star, Natalie Dormer, believes so.

Screenrant.com had an interview with Dormer a few days ago, asking her about her leadership role in Mockingjay Part 1 and if she would consider a role in any up and coming superhero movies that are set to start filming. She had this to say:

“I think…what we are aiming for, ultimately, is when it becomes more
about gender irrelevance, it’s more about just the character…and the journey
they are going on. I think that’s what we’re aiming for as a (movie) industry,
as an audience, and just as a people.”

In other words, I believe she is saying yes to her interviewer’s question. This quote takes one person’s opinion up to the next level, becoming the belief of not only women, but men as well. I think as a society and culture, we have exhausted the assumed role of the male in movies and books. Yes, men are strong in the general sense and more inclined to not let their emotions take the better of themselves, but women, in general, are able to do just the same in movies, as well as in real life. As Andrew Heiberger notes in his book (and I’m really agree with him on this) it is time for a gender revolution!

Climate Change Debate Altered by Republican

The debate over climate change has raged through the media between political leaders. 98% of scientists agree on the effects and suspected causes of climate change, however Republicans fear that the admission that climate change is caused by humans will lead to regulations against carbon pollution that will destroy the economy. Since the beginning the debate has been about whether or not climate change is occurring at all, something researchers have proven for a while.
Since Republicans will soon run the show in Congress, the public discussion on climate change will most likely halt in its current position or move behind closed doors. However a recent interview with a Republican from South Dakota has left Democrats wondering if the issue can be pushed further. Senator John Thune made a point on Fox News Sunday that gave some hope to those hoping to make some progress.
The interview was focused around the Keystone XL Pipeline, which would transport gas from Canada to Texas and has been stalled for years because of a debate over the climactic repercussions from building it. Lovett doesn’t know much about it, but he continues to read up on the situation. However, part way through when discussing the issue of climate change Thune went off the typical Republican script regarding the matter. Usually, conservatives say that climate change is occurring but that humans are not the cause, or do not contribute significantly. During this interview Thune specifically stated that climate change is caused by humans, and the questions have changed to what the cost will be to the solutions that are available.
