Security Tips (Sent by a Cop)

 

SENT BY A COP……. PLEASE READ!!!!! THIS

CAN NEVER BE SENT TOO MANY TIMES!!

READ THIS!!!

Because of recent abductions

In daylight hours, refresh yourself
of these things to do
in an emergency situation…

This is for you,

and for you to share

with your wife,

your children,

everyone you know.

After reading these 9 crucial tips ,

forward them to someone you care about.

It never hurts to be careful

in this crazy world we live in.
1. Tip from Tae Kwon Do :

The elbow is the strongest point

on your body.

If you are close enough to use it, do!
2. Learned this from a tourist guide.

If a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse,

DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM .

Toss it away from you….

Chances are that he is more interested

in your wallet and/or purse than you,

and he will go for the wallet/purse.

RUN LIKE MAD IN THE

OTHER DIRECTION!
3. If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car,

kick out the back tail lights and stick

your arm out the hole and start waving like crazy….
The driver won’t see you, but everybody else will.

This has saved lives.

4. Women have a tendency to get into their cars

after shopping, eating, working, etc., and just sit

(doing their chequebook, or making a list, etc.

DON’T DO THIS!)

The predator will be watching you, and this

is the perfect opportunity for him to get in

on the passenger side, put a gun to your head,

and tell you where to go.

AS SOON AS YOU GET INTO YOUR CAR ,

LOCK THE DOORS AND LEAVE..

If someone

is in the car

with a gun

to your head

DO NOT DRIVE OFF,

Repeat:

DO NOT DRIVE OFF!

Instead gun the engine

and speed into anything,

wrecking the car.
Your Air Bag will save you.

If the person is in the back seat

t hey will get the worst of it .

As soon as the car crashes

bail out and run.

It is better than having them find

your body in a remote location.
5. A few notes about getting

into your car in a parking lot,

or parking garage:

A.) Be aware:

look around you,

look into your car,

at the passenger side floor ,

and in the back seat

B.) If you are parked next to a big van,

enter your car from the passenger door .

Most serial killers attack their victims

by pulling them into their vans while the

women are attempting to get into their cars.
C.) Look at the car

parked on the driver’s side of your vehicle,

and the passenger side… If a male is sitting alone

in the seat nearest your car, you may want to

walk back into the mall, or work, and get a
guard/policeman to walk you back out.

IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO

BE SAFE THAN SORRY.
(And better paranoid than dead.)
6. ALWAYS take the elevator

instead of the stairs.

Stairwells are horrible places to

be alone and the perfect crime spot.
This is especially true at NIGHT!)

7. If the predator has a gun

and you are not under his control,

ALWAYS RUN!

The predator will only hit you (a

running target) 4 in 100 times; and even
then, it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ.
RUN, Preferably in a zig -zag pattern!

8. As women, we are always trying

to be sympathetic:

STOP

It may get you raped, or killed.

Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good-looking,

well educated man, who ALWAYS played

on the sympathies of unsuspecting women.

He walked with a cane, or a limp, and often

asked ‘for help’ into his vehicle or with

his vehicle, which is when he abducted
his next victim.
9. Another Safety Point:

Someone just told me that her friend heard

a crying baby on her porch the night before last,

and she called the police because it was late

and she thought it was weird.. The police told her

‘Whatever you do, DO NOT

open the door..’

The lady then said that it sounded like the baby

had crawled near a window, and she was worried

that it would crawl to the street and get run over.

The policeman said, ‘We already

have a unit on the way,
whatever you do, DO NOT open the door.’

He told her that they think a serial killer

has a baby’s cry recorded and uses it

to coax women out of their homes
thinking that someone dropped off a
baby. He said they have not verified it,
but have had several calls by women

saying that they hear baby’s cries
outside their doors when they’re
home alone at night.

10 . Water scam!

If you wake up in the middle
of the night to hear all your taps outside

running or what you think is a
burst pipe, DO NOT GO OUT TO INVESTIGATE!
These people turn on all your
outside taps full ball so that you will go
out to investigate and then attack.

Stay alert, keep safe, and look
out for your neighbors!
Please pass this on

This E -mail should probably be taken

seriously because
the Crying Baby T heory was mentioned on

America ‘s Most Wanted when they profiled

the serial killer in Louisiana

I’d like you to forward this to all the women you know.

It may save a life. A candle is not dimmed

by lighting another candle….
I was going to send this to the ladies only,

but guys, if you love your mothers, wives,

sisters, daughters, etc.,
you may want to pass it onto them, as well.

Send this to any woman you know that

may need to be reminded that the world
we live in has a lot of crazies in it
and it’s better to be safe than sorry….

Everyone should take 5 minutes to read this. It may save your life or love one’s life….

George Carlin’s Views on Aging




Do you realize that the only time in our lives when we like
to get old is when we’re kids? If you’re less than
10 years old, you’re so excited about
aging that you think in fractions.


‘How old are you?’ I’m four and a half!’

You’re never thirty-six and a half.
You’re four and a half, going on five! That’s the key


You get into your teens, now they can’t hold you back.
You jump to the next number, or even a few ahead.


‘How old are you?’ ‘I’m gonna be 16!’ You could be 13,
but hey, you’re gonna be 16! And then the greatest day of your life . .
you become 21. Even the words sound

like a ceremony .
YOU BECOME 21. YESSSS!!!


But then you turn 30. Oooohh, what happened there?
Makes you sound like bad milk! He TURNED; we had to
throw him out. There’s no fun now, you’re
Just a sour-dumpling.

What’s wrong? What’s changed?

You BECOME 21, you TURN 30, then you’re PUSHING 40.
Whoa! Put on the brakes, it’s all slipping away. Before you know it, you
REACH
50 and your dreams are gone.

But wait!!! You MAKE itto 60.
You didn’t think you would!

So you BECOME 21,
TURN
30,
PUSH
40,
REACH
50
and

MAKE it
to 60.

You’ve built up so much speed that you HIT 70!
After that it’s a day-by-day thing; you HIT Wednesday!

You get into your 80’s and every day is a complete cycle;

you HIT lunch; you TURN 4:30; you REACH bedtime.

And it doesn’t end there. Into the 90s, you start going backwards;
‘I Was JUST 92.’

Then a strange thing happens. If you make it over
100, you become a little kid again. ‘I’m 100 and a half!’
May you all make it to a healthy
100 and a half!!


HOW TO STAY YOUNG

1.
Throw out nonessential numbers.
This includes age, weight and height. Let the
doctors worry about them. That is why you pay ‘them.’


2.
Keep only cheerful friends.
The grouches pull you down.


3.
Keep learning.
Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening,
whatever. Never let the brain idle. ‘An idle mind
is the devil’s workshop.’

And the devil’s name is
Alzheimer’s.


4.
Enjoy the simple things.

5. Laugh
often, long and loud. Laugh
until you gasp for breath.


6.
The tears happen.
Endure, grieve, and move on.
The only person, who is with
us our entire life, is ourselves.
Be
ALIVE while you are alive.

7.
Surround yourself with what you love ,
whether it’s family, pets, keepsakes,
music, plants, hobbies, whatever.

Your home is your refuge .


8.
Cherish your health:
If it is good, preserve it.

If it is unstable, improve it.
If it is beyond what you can

improve, get help.


9.
Don’t take guilt trips.
Take a trip to the mall,

even to the next county;
to a foreign country but

NOT to where the guilt is.


10.
Tell the people you
love that you love them
,

at every opportunity.


AND ALWAYS REMEMBER
:
Life is not measured by the
number of breaths we take,

but
by the moments that
take our breath away.

And if you don’t send this to at least 8 people
who cares?
But do share this with someone.
We all need to live life to
its fullest each day!!

A Dozen Ways to Get to Know Your Real Partner

Here are the dozen indicators:

1. Protocol: First or Second? Whether it’s walking through a door, ordering dinner, or taking a bite out of the freshly baked cookies you have made together, if your partner always have to go first this could indicate self- centeredness. Are you willing to always be the giver?

2. Politics: Liberal or Conservative? How your partner views what is right or wrong in a political sense tells you a lot about his deep inner beliefs about society, and ultimately, the way he will approach your relationship issues. Will his views cause a rift in your relationship?

3. Television: Sitcoms or News? If his tendency is to watch “escape” TV programs versus “newsy/event” oriented ones, you can learn a lot about one’s intellect. Do you want a mate who can keep up with your every day interest in what is going on in the world or a person you can run away with to avoid the world we live in?

4. Money: Flash or Stash? If your partner throws money around while dating, he might well be reckless with your joint finances when you move in together. Do you want to hook up with a tightwad or splurger?

5. Stress: Freak or Peak? Under Pressure, does he go to pieces or rise to the top of his game? If the answer is the former, every minor incident in your relationship might become a crisis. Do you like a lot of drama?

6. Conversation: About You or Him? As you first get to know each other does he always talk about himself first or you? If he is usually the topic priority do not expect that to change. Can you subordinate yourself to the world revolving around him?

7. Pets: Warm or Aloof? Believe it or not, the way in which he treats animals will not be dissimilar to how he treats your children. How do you want him to treat your loved ones?

8. Communication: Listens or Ignores? If you have something you want to talk about and he tunes you out as a general rule, can you cope?

9. Strangers: Kind or Rude? How he treats those they do not know (waiters, grocery clerks) often reflects on how he will treat people in general, including you, shortly after the glow wears off.

10. Priorities: Family or Work? You can tell almost immediately where a person’s preferences lie in terms of what comes first (a family member’s illness or a business trip) by the choices he makes when faced with an “either/or” situation. Do you care if he leaves on the next plane to present the such-and-such report if you or the kids have pneumonia?

11. Appearance: Fat or Fit? How he regards his appearance screams loudly about his sense of self-esteem. Those who eat sensibly, workout reasonably, and who take pride in their appearance are the ones who have a great sense of self. Does he really have self-confidence or might it be a front?

12. Faith: Strong or Weak? If you want a peak at his soul, learn more about his spirituality, or lack of it. What a person believes deep down is often what shapes the way in which they conduct their day-to-day affairs. What is your mate’s “words to live by?”

Blood Clot/Stroke

My nurse friend sent this and encouraged me to post it and spread the word. I agree.If everyone can remember something this simple, we could save some folks. Seriously..

Please read:

STROKE IDENTIFICATION:

 

During a BBQ, a friend stumbled and took a little fall – she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) …..she said she had just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes.
They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Ingrid went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening.

Ingrid’s husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital – (at 6:00 pm Ingrid passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Ingrid would be with us today. Some don’t die…. they end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead.

It only takes a minute to read this…

A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke… totally . He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough.

 

RECOGNIZING A STROKE

 


Thank God for the sense to remember the ‘3’ steps, STR . Read and Learn!


Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke .

 


T * Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently)
(i.e. It is sunny out today)

R * Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.
Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:
S * Ask the individual to SMILE.

 

ANY ONE of these tasks, call 999/911 immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.
If he or she has trouble with

 

New Sign of a Stroke ——– Stick out Your Tongue

 

NOTE: Another ‘sign’ of a stroke is this: Ask the person to ‘stick’ out his tongue.. If the tongue is ‘crooked’, if it goes to one side or the other , that is also an indication of a stroke.

 

 
A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this e-mail sends it to 10 people; you can bet that at least one life will be saved.

Bananas

Bananas
A professor at CCNY for a physiological psych class told his class about bananas. He said the expression ‘going bananas’ is from the effects of bananas on the brain. Read on……….

Never, put your banana in the refrigerator! !!

This is interesting.

After reading this, you’ll never look at a banana in the same way again.


Depression:
According to a recent survey undertaken by MIND amongst people suffering from depression, many felt much better after eating a banana.  This is because bananas contain tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin, known to make you relax, improve your mood and generally make you feel happier.

Forget the pills – eat a banana. The vitamin B6 it contains regulates blood glucose levels, which can affect your mood.

High in iron, bananas can stimulate the production of hemoglobin in the blood and so helps in cases of anemia.

This unique tropical fruit is extremely high in potassium yet low in salt, making it perfect to beat blood pressure.  So much so, the US Food and Drug Administration has just allowed the banana industry to make official claims for the fruit’s ability to reduce the risk of blood pressure and stroke.


Brain Power:
200 students at a Twickenham (Middlesex) school were helped through their exams this year by eating bananas at breakfast, break, and lunch in a bid to boost their brain power. Research has shown that the potassium-packed fruit can assist learning by making pupils more alert.

High in fiber, including bananas in the diet can help restore normal bowel action, helping to overcome the problem without resorting to laxatives.

One of the quickest ways of curing a hangover is to make a banana milkshake, sweetened with honey.  The banana calms the stomach and, with the help of the honey, builds up depleted blood sugar levels, while the milk soothes and re-hydrates your system.

Bananas have a natural antacid effect in the body, so if you suffer from heartburn, try eating a banana for soothing relief.

Morning Sickness: Snacking on bananas between meals helps to keep blood sugar levels up and avoid morning sickness.

Before reaching for the insect bite cream, try rubbing the affected area with the inside of a banana skin.  Many people find it amazingly successful at reducing swelling and irritation.

Bananas are high in B vitamins that help calm the nervous system.


Overweight and at work?
Studies at the Institute of Psychology in Austria found pressure at work leads to gorging on comfort food like chocolate and crisps.  Looking at 5,000 hospital patients, researchers found the most obese were more likely to be in high-pressure jobs.  The report concluded that, to avoid panic-induced food cravings, we need to control our blood sugar levels by snacking on high carbohydrate foods every two hours to keep levels steady.

The banana is used as the dietary food against intestinal disorde rs because of its soft texture and smoothness.  It is the only raw fruit that can be eaten without distress in over-chronicler cases.  It also neutralizes over-acidity and reduces irritation by coating the lining of the stomach.

Many other cultures see bananas as a ‘cooling’ fruit that can lower both the physical and emotional temperature of expectant mothers.  In Thailand , for example, pregnant women eat bananas to ensure their baby is born with a cool temperature.

Bananas can help SAD sufferers because they contain the natural mood enhancer tryptophan.

Bananas can also help people trying to give up smoking.  The B6, B12 they contain, as well as the potassium and magnesium found in them, help the body recover from the effects of nicotine withdrawal.

Stress:
Potassium is a vital mineral, which helps normalize the heartbeat, sends oxygen to the brain and regulates your body’s water balance.  When we are stressed, our metabolic rate rises, thereby reducing our potassium levels.  These can be rebalanced with the help of a high-potassium banana snack.

According to research in The New En gland Journal of Medicine, eating bananas as part of a regular diet can cut the risk of death by strokes by as much as 40%!

Those keen on natural alternatives swear that if you want to kill off a wart, take a piece of banana skin and place it on the wart, with the yellow side out.  Carefully hold the skin in place with a plaster or surgical tape!


PS: Bananas must be the reason monkeys are so happy all the time!  I will add one here; want a quick shine on our shoes??  Take the INSIDE of the banana skin, and rub directly on the shoe…polish with dry cloth.  Amazing fruit !!
