Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeno


Ingredients:

  • 12 fresh jalapeno peppers
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  • 12 slices bacon, cut in half

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400F degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper (best for clean-up) or a silicone baking mat. Place a baking rack on top of the baking sheet. Set aside.
  2. Cut the jalapeño peppers in half lengthwise; remove seeds and center membrane. Set aside.
  3. Using a handheld or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, garlic, and paprika together until combined. You could also do this by hand using a rubber spatula. Salt to taste - I add just a pinch. Spoon filling equally among all 24 jalapeño halves.
  4. Wrap each stuffed jalapeño with a half slice of bacon and stick a toothpick through the center to assure the bacon stays in place. Place each on the baking rack and bake for 25-28 minutes or until the bacon is crisp to your liking. I like to turn the oven to broil for the last minute or two to get things extra crispy.
  5.  Serve immediately.

Best Way to Teach Kids to Read

 
What's the best way to teach children to read? According to the National Reading Panel, "teaching children to manipulate phonemes in words was highly effective under a variety of teaching conditions with a variety of learners across a range of grade and age levels and that teaching phonemic awareness to children significantly improves their reading more than instruction that lacks any attention to Phonemic Awareness." [1] This is a statement made by the National Reading Panel (NRP) in their report titled "TEACHING CHILDREN TO READ: An Evidence-Based Assessment of the Scientific Research Literature on Reading and Its Implications for Reading Instruction."
Phonemic Awareness instruction was selected for review by the NRP in their report because studies have identified phonemic awareness and letter knowledge as two of the best predictors of how well children will learn to read in their first 2 years of entering school. There is strong Scientific evidence to suggest that phonemic awareness instructions are an important part in helping children develop reading skills.

One study discussed the presence of phonemic awareness in Austrian children aged 6 to 7 that were unable to read when first entering school. This study found that many children had not one correct response in their test of a simple vowel substitution task. However, a few children who exhibited high phonemic awareness scored close to perfect on this same task. The study further stated that "there was a specific predictive relationship between initial phonemic awareness differences and success in learning to read and to spell." Even more importantly, the study indicated that it was phonemic awareness abilities, and not IQ, that predicted the accuracy of reading and spelling at the end of grade one. Children with high phonemic awareness at the beginning of grade one had high reading and spelling achievements at the end of grade one, compared to some children with low phonemic awareness who had difficulties learning to read and spell. 

In the National Reading Panel report, they also determined that the beneficial effects of phonemic awareness on reading lasts well beyond the period of training. While phonemic awareness instructions are proven to significantly help children learn reading, it is not a complete reading program. What it does, is provide children with a foundational knowledge base of the alphabet language. The NRP analysis also showed that phonics instructions produces significant benefits for students from kindergarten through grade 6, and is also helpful for children with learning to read difficulties.

Children who are taught with phonics and phonemic awareness instructions are consistently able to decode, read, and spell, and even demonstrated significant improvement in their ability to comprehend text. Even older children who receive these similar teachings improved their ability to decode and spell. The NRP made a key statement saying that "conventional wisdom has suggested that kindergarten students might not be ready for phonics instruction, this assumption was not supported by the data. The effects of systematic early phonics instruction were significant and substantial in kindergarten and the 1st grade, indicating that systematic phonics programs should be implemented at those age and grade levels.

However, I would like to further expand on that by saying that children as young as two years old can learn to read through phonics and phonemic awareness instructions. If a young child can speak, then they should be able to learn to read, even if they are as young as two years old. In fact, I have proven this with my own children. We started teaching our daughter at 2 years and 8months, and she was very capable at reading by the time she was just 2 years and 11 months old.

The first of these may have an impact on the center of the brain responsible for appetite, which allows you to control hunger. Some of them swallow in the stomach when combined with water. As a result, you do not feel hungry.
The most popular products curbing appetite are those containing Hoodia Gordonii. The group of fat burners includes medications that has L-carnitine. The substance is supposed to speed up fat burning and turn it into lean body mass.

Take care of your butt, and will be shapelier, firm and nice. We suggest what you should eat, whose cosmetics use and how to train.



This part of the body is the bane of many women. We would like it to be beautiful without cellulite and stretch marks. Hard as a rock and smooth as velvet. Devoid of unnecessary hairs and pimples. Just perfect. Unfortunately, the adipose tissue in women loved wearing around the hips and buttocks. Ass does not like over-eating, sedentary lifestyle, lazing on the couch, lack of exercise, unhealthy food ... She reveals that, instead of the gym, we spent the afternoon on the rumors at the big cake. Fortunately, there are ways to be beautiful. And let's enjoy that most of these benefits do not cost hundreds of thousands. Just modify your diet, start practicing and follow a few rules, and pressed in any, even the most tight pants.

Diet


It is no secret that in order to have a nice butt, you need to eat sensibly and healthily. Therefore a reminder of the basic principles that you need to put into practice. Most importantly, you eat regular, frequent and small portions. Under no circumstances fasting, do not give up eating after a workout or a lunch. In this way, not only will fall from power, you also sit down metabolism. When you're hungry, go ahead and reach for fruits and vegetables (especially the latter, because they have less sugar). Your diet should be rich in dairy products - eat cottage cheese and yogurt. Try to make your menu was rich in fiber. And do not forget that the excess salt retains water in the body. Do not eat sweets, because your bum revenge for stretch marks and folds of fat. You can also treat yourself eg. South Beach diet, which will improve the look of your ass.

Your bum is very sensitive to what you drink. And you should drink at least one and a half liters of mineral still water a day. Go ahead and reach for the green and red tea, which cleanse the body of toxins and stimulate metabolism. Forget about alcohol, coffee, avoid black tea.

Exercises



Buttocks like motion. Therefore, try to walk as much as possible - cancel the bus or car, calisthenics, gymnastics at home, using the stairs (at the same time try not slouch!). If you are looking for the best sport for your ass, swim, ride a horse and start cycling. It is also a very good fitness: stepper and treadmill especially.

Here are exercises for use at home:
Lie on your back and bend your knees. Lift heel and relying on toes and shoulders, lift the hips. Count to three, let down. And do not forget about the bike and shears made on the back. From them start a home workout.


Kneel with hands resting on the floor. Lift one leg, throw it in the back and straighten (remember back straight!). Then throw the leg side. Practice so once one, once the other leg. Good results, tensing the muscles of the buttocks (you can do it anytime, anywhere), as well as putting the leg by leg, with outstretched knees, like a model when you walk. Do not swing your hips.

Cellulite and stretch marks 
Time to deal with this abomination. Orange peel on the buttocks is a nightmare even skinny girls. How to deal with unsightly cellulite? First of all, regularly massage the buttocks rough sponge or glove while bathing, donates them to the shower alternating hot and cold water. Knead the places affected by cellulite, slimming cosmetic use and firming. For stretch marks is the best massage relies precisely on pinching and crease. And here's one more mysterious (and effective!) Trick: rub the skin of the buttocks lumps of ice. In this way, your bum will be firm and free of cellulite! In a separate text home know how to get rid of orange peel.

Treatments
Ass sometimes requires professional care - then prove themselves in the beauty salon treatments. What kind of treatments provided? It is primarily electrostimulation, ideal for cellulite and stretch marks, because firms and smoothes the skin of the buttocks, as well as endermologie. It is used in the spa treatments that work cellulite. Effective treatments are also using a plaster mask or algae. It should try a professional massage. Remember, however, that such treatments must be repeated at least several times, must also be supported by diet and physical activity.

Eczema
May occur by too tight pants or underwear. Get rid of them primarily peeling - buttocks like him very much. In the case of pimples also check cosmetics for acne, especially those ... to face. Herbal tonics trial also should deal with spotty at bottom. Regularly moisturise the skin lotion buttocks. I wear underwear made of natural fabrics and looser pants. Pimples on the ass can also indicate hormonal changes.

Hairiness
The easiest, fastest and cheapest method of removing unwanted hair is razor. However, you can not always get to all parts of the body. Shaving will be more accurate if you squat or lie down in the bath and lift your legs. Hair from the buttocks can also remove depilatory cream, wax, or - in the case of high resistance to pain - depilatory. After this step is necessary to lubricate the skin cream or lotion. More about the pubic hair removal can be found in another article.

Tan
Tempting buttocks can not be faint. It would be best if you were singed in the sun and it's in motion. Therefore, in the summer, when you find yourself on the beach, walk, play volleyball or in the other game. You can use the solarium, but it is not the healthiest way. It is best to use self-tanning lotions and bronzers - in this case, better to rely on a beautician, because you can treat yourself to some ugly stains. If you want to immediately have brown buttocks, think about spray tanning.

Throw straightener, make friends with a round brush, Thrust bangs and learn how to stylize it so that it looked as if you do not do with it! Our expert hair styling Oskar , Hair and Make-up Designer, how to convert your existing hair to get the trendiest look of the season.

Short hair - full speed ahead,  back short front long.


 This season, short hair should be cut so that dominated bangs. Slightly longer front cover can nonchalantly forehead, or can be pulled back. However, it has to be clear! In such cuts give up compartment, just softly shaded heavily cropped and put hair styling paste and kneading fingers. For a great starting such a long mane, you can easily turn using a curling iron or straightener. Back hair should be short podstrzyżony.

IMPORTANT TIP! Ask barber hair on bangs shading emphasized a different shade of paint. The trendiest color this year is "BROND" or penetrating blond and brown.



Medium hair - let them go back to the arms 

Constantly trendy bob haircut is this season a bit extended. Now is the ideal hair reaching exactly to his shoulders. However, it is important not to leave his arms on them or not based. The bottom line should be clear cut. Regarding the pockets, here there is flexibility: it can be a side or in the middle. Otherwise, the styling, there is one rule: a bit too long bob should be very natural. Do not straighten hair straightener, or twist them in a precise curls. Creasing them! 

IMPORTANT TIP! Dry your hair on a round brush and not previously dent in the foam. This gives you a trendy effect - your hair will be soft and lightly place, will also be reflected from the base which will significantly increase their volume. Remember that flattened hair is passé.



Long hair - go for too long bangs and waves

 Until recently wore long hair bangs perfectly equal. Fashion was also perfectly ironed hair straightener. Now requires just the opposite trend: to be soft, somewhat imprecisely and for that very natural. How do I get this effect? If you have bangs, grow it so that the hair reached to the cheekbones and naturally spread to the sides. If you do not - ask your hairdresser to cut off the hair strands next to the face. Too long, spread over the sides of the bangs, provides a romantic, feminine look. Wondering if you should lay it something special? It depends. If your hair is naturally slightly contracting - resign yourself to the fact that wrest themselves in any direction, and such leave them. If you have straight hair as wires - reach for the rollers or a round brush and give them a slight twist so as to create a soft, non-binding waves.

Buy so good conditioner or mask, full of natural plant extracts, for example. Avocados, almonds, coconut and aloe. Nourishing them, and they were arranged better.

5 Critical Keys To Kill Your Cellulite

5 Critical Keys to Kill Your Cellulite


One of our contributing experts recently put together a kick-butt article that is the “Do This – and DON’T Do That” rule-book when it comes to getting rid of unsightly cellulite dimples, shadows and ripples. It’s a quick read with some eye-opening tips and a helpful video that you’ll want to see while it’s still up.
———————————————————————————————————————-
-contributed by – Joey Atlas, Womens’ Body Enhancement Specialist — M.S., Exercise Physiology"

"Ask any woman on the street what the definition of "cellulite" is and you'll get a confused variety of answers. From “toxic fat pockets caught in the skin” to “bands of fiber pulling down on the skin” and many odd things in between…"

Cellulite Gone - Bikini On
The truth is: most people really don’t know what “cellulite” actually is, or, what causes this odd appearance of the lower body trouble zones…"
This is no surprise as there actually is no such thing as ‘cellulite’… So how do we get rid of something which doesn’t exist?"
Here’s the answer:
"The word, “cellulite”, was cleverly made-up several decades ago, in a European beauty-spa, to DESCRIBE the bumpy, shadowy and dimpled appearance of skin in the lower body trouble zones of the female body. (butt, hips, thighs, legs)"
The beauty spas then started cashing-in and profiting big-time by marketing "beauty" services and products to get rid of "cellulite". And if you're like most women who've been challenged by this issue, then you probably already know all of those passive and superficial beauty treatments do not get rid of the dented shadows and mushy dimples on your buns, legs and thighs."
In order to make your lower-body smooth, tight and attractive, there are 5 steps to follow.
Here they are:

5 Critical Keys to KILL Your Cellulite

1: You cannot get rid of the dimples and shadows (cellulite) by rubbing an odd gel, weird lotion or goopy cream on your trouble zones and problem spots.
So, stop using them – as some can actually make your cellulite worse.
Despite the fact that there are dozens of supposed ‘cellulite reduction creams’ on the market, there is no possible way for any one of them, no matter how expensive, to get rid of your cellulite. Cellulite is not a skin problem. Its an underlying structural issue, that can only be corrected by reversing the cause of atrophied muscle fibers directly beneath your “cellulite” trouble spots."
Since the squishy dimples and shadows are a superficial symptom of a problem below the surface; it’s impossible for the creams, lotions or gels to have any physiological impact on the cause of the issue…"

2: Risky and expensive ‘medi-spa treatments’ can only reduce your bank account – not your cellulite problems. And there are many consumer reports about women being seriously scarred or injured as well.
Stay away from these as the FDA reports show women who’ve been scarred or injured for life.
Painful, dangerous and uncomfortable services ranging from endermologie to body-wrapping have been proven to be totally ineffective when it comes to treating cellulite. However, advertising and marketing loopholes allow these services to be cleverly marketed to desperate women who are at wits end with the unattractive dimples and shadows on the lower-body problem areas."

3: The unattractive dimples, shadows and saggy ripples known as cellulite are not ‘genetic’ and you are NOT stuck with them forever if you have them.
Falsely believing this will prevent you from getting rid of your cellulite. So, don’t entertain this nonsense for 1 second.
These two ridiculous myths are often passed around by ‘neighborhood know-it-alls’ – and many women actually believe these 2 myths – especially if they haven’t found the right way to get rid of the cellulite. Whats even more alarming are the number of doctors who also believe in and foster these 2 demoralizing falsehoods.
Yes – it is common to see a mother and daughter, both with the lower-body "orange peel" look, BUT this doesn't mean cellulite is genetic – it simply means both women have not found a way to lift, tone and firm the muscle layers under the dimpled, saggy skin."

4: You can get rid of cellulite, regardless of your age – or when you began to notice it."
Since cellulite is a structural issue (muscle) – it can be fixed with simple and unique body movements which target the cellulite areas."
These types of moves can be followed by any woman, regardless of her age or fitness level. And it doesn’t matter if the cellulite started in the early teen years – or after pregnancy – or after menopause – it’s still a structural issue that results from soft, un-toned muscles underneath the saggy, dimpled, shadowy skin."

5: The only proven way to permanently get rid of the dimples and shadows of cellulite is through a series of simple, yet specifically targeted lower-body movements"
These unique movements focus on lifting, shaping and toning the muscle layers so they gently push outward against the skin – to bring back the smooth, tight and sexy appearance, while burning off any excess flab, if there is any."
This is how regular women reverse the cause of cellulite dimples and shadows… AND, if there happens to be any excess fat in those zones – it will be burned off as fuel by the muscles. This bonus of losing any unhealthy excess body-fat is nice because it reveals a great body and it works wonders for your health profile."
BUT you won’t learn about these unique slow-tempo movements in the gym or your local health club."
These body movements are NOT done with typical weights and machine type exercises." "Most regular fitness instructors don’t even know about this type of targeted cellulite-killing method. (click to watch video)
"
These muscle-stimulating movements can be done right at home, in total privacy."

The female lower-body has over 90 muscles…"

Picture those 90 muscles BENEATH your skin’s surface in your legs, butt, hips and thigh zones. That’s where the magic happens in regards to true removal of mushy dimples and saggy shadows in the trouble spots and problem areas…
Despite what most women have been led to believe, there is a critical difference between a ‘general workout program’ – and a laser-focused, cellulite removal method. The sweetest benefit of this is; you don’t need access to a health club or fitness center." …"Just click PLAY on this video by Joey Atlas, (M.S., Ex.Phys.) and get it started now:" (it opens in a bigger screen so you don’t miss a thing)
These are simple, unique moves you can start doing today, right in the privacy of your own home. And if you start this type of targeted muscle stimulation method today – you will start feeling results within 2 weeks and seeing results within 3 to 4 weeks."

Microwaved food: is it healthy?


Most people who want to eat healthy food, there is no confidence in the microwave, still circulates a lot of controversy and myths in this topic. When the microwave introduced into general use, its opponents warned that the side effects will be visible only after years. These years have passed, and the effects can not be seen.

What is it really? I want to introduce you a little bit about it :)


 How do microwaves.

This is normal cooking!
Microwave oven heats food using electromagnetic waves of a length comprised between infrared and ultra short waves. They affect the water molecules, which goes into steam and cooks the food. Wave energy is too weak to cause changes in the chemical structure of the food (only penetrates to a depth of 2.5 cm). Microwave radiation is not strong enough to endanger persons in the vicinity, or for foods that are found in the interior and are subjected to a heating or thawing.

Microwaves and vitamins

The risk of loss of vitamins occurs when food is heated to very high temperatures. Similarly, the addition of water running high that leaches from food vitamins B and C, and minerals.
Such a phenomenon occurs not only in a microwave oven, but also the traditional cooking or baking.
However, studies have shown that microwave food has lost much smaller amount of nutrients. The shorter the cooking time and smaller amount of water makes the compounds less sensitive to temperature disintegrates.

The taste of food

Using the microwave, do not need to use fat, mainly fats deepen flavor of the dish. In addition, food heated in a microwave oven is often dried, thereby losing its taste and feels old and is not suitable for eating. Is good or not - a matter of taste. Certainly dishes cooked in the microwave is different in taste

Why do people say that the food heated in the microwave is unhealthy?

We put in the microwave usually "Quick" and highly processed food, have little in common with a healthy, full of vitamins and nutrients food. They abound preservatives, harmful fats, and salt. And, even if the microwave is not harmful, these meals are not healthy.

Scientific studies have not confirmed the harmful effects of microwaves on food. But you have to remember that food can be cooked in the microwave and heat only in the respective vessels, preferably glass (heat-resistant). It is very important that we use vessels were not sealed, because producing heating under the influence of water vapor it could simply explode. Do not be put inside the oven dish made of metal (also try to avoid aluminum and silver items). Such materials are reflected waves generation and at the least expected moment can lead to sparks and even fire.

Diet Plans For Women


People standing directly behind the diets provide a rapid loss of pounds in a week even. However, experts say that this type of weight loss results can be achieved only through a rapid loss of water from the body and this in turn may adversely affect the whole body. Another issue many diets is the so-called yo-yo effect, meaning a return to the previous weight in a very short period of time after discontinuation of the diet.

All slimming diets have very similar key assumptions. This is what shows your weight is a collection of fat, muscle, bone and water. Excess calories, which could not burn during the day are deposited in the body in the form of fat. That's why almost every diet out there in some way limits the amount of calories consumed. In addition to burn fat already stockpiles needed to increase metabolism and this unfortunately can only be achieved through some form of exercise and training. Therefore, remember that reducing the amount of calories you consume, it is important not to starve the body by depriving it important for reasons of health nutrition.

Is so choosing a diet is so important? Finally, in each of these terms, in fact, is the same, to reduce daily calorie intake. Of course they are different kind of food intake, side effects, some are more healthy than others but the initial premise is the same. Scientists studied for 2 years 800 people who are overweight. The conclusion was as follows. It's a diet that a person has applied and whether it was a low-fat diet or a low-carb does not have a major impact on the result. What mattered is the sum of calories consumed during the day. It does not really matter where the calories come from, it is important that the sum of calories consumed is less than the demand of our body.

What is so mean? Just that as long as we eat less than you burn during the day, we can make use of any diet. Therefore, choosing a diet is not so important. Just that as long as we eat less than you burn during the day, we can make use of any diet. Therefore, choosing a diet is not so important, and everyone can find something that will suit him.

Can You Really Choose Your Baby's Gender?


Gender selection of children is a controversial topic, particularly in terms of genetic therapy and the ethics of picking the sex of your child. While there certainly have been advances in the field of genetics, there are actually some natural and completely ethical things that you can do that will increase the likelihood of selecting a gender for your child.

While no method is 100% accurate, if you are determined to have a boy or a girl, there are a few things that can be done to significantly increase your chances of conceiving the gender of your choice. Remember, the most important thing is to have a healthy baby, regardless of their gender. But if you do want to try to pick the gender of your child, it is possible. Here's what you need to know.

Differences in Sperm

The sperm that carry the Y chromosome are the "boy" sperms, while the ones that carry the X chromosome are the "girl" sperms. The Y sperm are faster, smaller, more agile but they do not last as long as the "girl" sperm. The X sperm are bigger and move quite slowly. In addition to their overall speed, they have different preferences in terms of the acidity of the vagina and cervix. An X sperm does better in an acidic environment while the Y sperm prefer an alkaline environment.

How These Differences Affect Conception

Now that we have established the differences between the sperm that carry different chromosomes, it is important to understand how these differences can be used for natural gender selection. Once you have this information, you can begin trying to conceive a child that will be a specific gender.
If you want to have a boy, the timing is crucial. Since these sperm do not live long, it is vital to time your intercourse as closely to ovulation as possible. This gives the Y sperm time to reach the egg before the X sperm do, increasing the chances that you will have a boy.

If you want to have a girl, you need to give the X sperm plenty of time to reach the egg. Since they live longer, this means that you want to time intercourse a few days before expected ovulation. By the time you ovulate, the Y sperm will have already died off, leaving only the X sperm behind. They will have the time needed to travel up through the cervix to reach the egg and fertilize it.
