Why I started Fight Against Abuse

Lots of women and children are being abused in some way or the other in every part of the world. I personally feel that the percentage of women and children being abused is on an increase. In India every day on news we all get to hear about cases relating to rape, molestation, eve teasing, dowry death, harassment etc. We all have to work to stop this evil menace.

Keeping all this in mind , I have created Fight Against Abuse Cause ( FAAC )   on Facebook and @fight_abuse on Twitter because I wanted to create awareness about the trauma faced women and children who are being abused. I would like to work with women and children who are being abused and help them over come the trauma they have gone through or may still be going through .I would like to make this my career option as this cause is very close to my heart and I personally feel that enough is not being done to help these victims of abuse.

Even when I am facing discouragement and resistance from some individuals I will not give up till I succeed. If anyone who is interested in being a part of this cause is free to join us to make the fight stronger. Please feel free to leave a story you have read or heard, an experience you have gone through in your life or any sort of information you would like to share regarding the subject.

I have created an e-mail id for this cause feel drop me a line. Email: fightagainstabuse2010@gmail.com

Brain Damaging Habits

No Breakfast:

People who do not take breakfast are going to have a lower blood sugar level. This leads to an insufficient supply of nutrients to the brain causing brain degeneration.

OverEating:

it causes hardening of brain arteries, leading to decrease in mental power.

Smoking:

It causes multiple brain shrinkage and may lead to alzheimer disease.

High Sugar Consumption:

Too much sugar will interrupt the absorption of proteins and nutrients causing malnutrition and may interfere with brain development.

Air pollution:

The brain is the largest oxygen consumer in our body. Inhaling polluted air decreases the supply of oxygen to the brain, bringing about a decrease in brain efficiency.

Sleep deprivation:

Sleep allows our brain to rest. Long term deprivation from sleep will accelerate the death of brain cells.

Head  covered while sleeping:

Sleeping with the head covered, increases the concentration of carbon dioxide and decrease concentration of oxygen that may lead to brain damaging effects.

Working your brain during illness.

Working hard or studying with sickness may lead to a decrease in effectiveness of the brain as well as damage the brain.

Lacking in stimulating thoughts:

Thinking is the best way to train our brain, lacking in brain stimulation thoughts may cause brain shrinkage.

Talking rarely

Intellectual conversations will promote the efficiency of brain.

Sleeping so late and waking up too late will disrupt the process of removing unnecessary chemicals. Aside from that, midnight to 4.oo am is the time when the bone marrow produces blood. Therefore, have a good sleep and don’t sleep late.

Never Give Up

One day a young lady was driving along with her father.
They came upon a storm, and the young lady asked her father, What should I do?”
He said “keep driving”. Cars began to pull over to the side, the storm was
Getting worse.

“What should I do.” The young lady asked?

“Keep driving,” her father replied.

On up a few feet, she noticed that eighteen wheelers were also pulling over.
She told her dad, “I must pull over, I can barely see ahead. It is
Terrible, and everyone is pulling over!”

Her father told her, “Don’t give up, just keep driving!”

Now the storm was terrible, but she never stopped driving, and soon she
Could see a little more clearly. After a couple of miles she was again on
Dry land, and the sun came out.

Her father said, “Now you can pull over and get out.”

She said “But why now?”

He said “When you get out, look back at all the people that gave up and are
Still in the storm, because you never gave up your storm is now over.

This is a testimony for anyone who is going through “hard times”.

Just because everyone else, even the strongest, gives up. You don’t have
To…if you keep going, soon your storm will be over and the sun will shine
Upon your face again.

This story touched me! I hope it touched you, too !!!

Be Careful !! Must Read!: Torchlights (Stungun)

FOR YOUR INFORMATION, latest weapon used by robbers.

THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT. NO MATTER HOW BUSY YOU ARE, YOU MUST GIVE YOURSELF AT LEAST 3 MINUTES TO READ THIS!

I just thought to let know what my doctor told me recently. I don’t think she was lying and neither am I, so please pass this on to your friends. Her clinic is in SS2 and you know how congested that place is.

One morning a few months ago in broad daylight, a girl was getting into her car when a few men approached her with what looked like a torchlight. Quite harmless looking. They pressed the “torchlight” into her back and immediately she went limp and very pale. So she wouldn’t be able to fight back, they slashed her thigh with a parang and sped away in her car.

There were many people around and they quickly took her to the nearest clinic which was my doctor’s clinic. There were two doctors at that time and they managed to stitch up her wound but the girl remained pulse-less and still pale as paper. No pulse, no BP (blood pressure). Just like dead.

My doctors were confused as to how one wound on the thigh made the girl almost like dead? They managed to revive her and save her life.

After some checking around, the doctors found out what actually happened was that the girl was made unconscious not by a torchlight but actually a high voltage weapon. I forgot how many watts she mentioned. 1000? Anyway, it was high enough to kill a person by electrocution.

It seems this weapon is from China. It’s not rampant in Malaysia…yet; but with this thing, a person can rob, rape, kill, kidnap, and practically do anything to you. My doctor said that if the girl weren’t taken to the clinic immediately she would have died because there was no pulse on her.

So please just beware of your surroundings, if anybody is lurking around with a torchlight-thingy and approaches you, just scream or run away. Better to be embarrassed than ZAPPED and fried, right? Take care.

THESE SETS OF THREE LITTLE WORDS CAN MAKE A LOT OF DIFFERENCE IN ONE’S LIFE

There are many things that we can do to perk up and strengthen our interpersonal relationships. Yet the most effective involves the saying of just three words. When spoken or conveyed, these statements have the power to forge new friendships, deepen old ones and restore relationships that have cooled. The following three-word phrases can
enrich every relationship.

I’ll Be There: If you have ever had to call a friend in the middle of the night, to take a sick child to hospital, or when your car has broken down some miles from home, you will know how good it feels to hear the phrase “I’ll be there.” Being there for another person is the greatest gift we can give when we are truly present for other people, important things
happen to them and us. We are renewed in love and friendship. We are restored emotionally and spiritually. Being there is at the very core of civility.

I Miss You: Perhaps more marriages could be saved and strengthened if couples simply and sincerely said to each other “I miss you.” This powerful affirmation tells partners they are wanted, needed, desired and loved. Consider how ecstatic you would feel, if you received an unexpected phone call from your spouse in the middle of your workday, just
to say “I miss you”.

I Respect You: Respect is another way of showing love. Respect conveys the feeling that another person is a true equal. If you talk to your children as if they were adults you will strengthen the bonds and become close friends. This applies to all inter-personal relationships.

Maybe You’re Right: This phrase is highly effective in diffusing an argument and restoring frayed emotions. The flip side to “Maybe you’re right” is the humility of admitting, “Maybe I’m wrong”. Let’s face it, when you have a heated argument with someone, all you do is cement the other person’s point of view. They, or you, will not change their/your stance and you run the risk of seriously damaging the relationship between you. Saying “Maybe you’re right” can open the door to further explore the subject, in which you may then have the opportunity to get your view across in a more rational manner.

Please Forgive Me: Many broken relationships could be restored and healed if people would admit their mistakes and ask for forgiveness. All of us are vulnerable to faults, foibles and failures. A man should never be ashamed to own up that he has been in the wrong, which is saying, in other words, that he is wiser today than he was yesterday.

I Thank You: Gratitude is an exquisite form of courtesy. People who enjoy the companionship of good, close friends are those who don’t take daily courtesies for granted. They are quick to thank their friends for their many expressions of kindness. On the other hand, people whose circle of friends is severely constricted often do not have the attitude of
gratitude.

Count On Me: A friend is one who walks in, when others walk out. Loyalty is an essential ingredient for true friendship; it is the emotional glue that bonds people. Those who are rich in their relationships tend to be steady and true friends. When troubles come, a good friend is there indicating you can “count on me.”

Let Me Help: The best of friends see a need and try to fill it. When they spot a hurt they do what they can to heal it. Without being asked, they pitch in and help.

I Understand You: People become closer and enjoy each other more if they feel the other person accepts and understands them. Letting your spouse know in so many little ways that you understand her/him, is one of the most powerful tools for healing your relationship. This applies to any relationship.

I Love You: Perhaps the most important three words that you can say. Telling someone that you truly love them satisfies a person’s deepest emotional needs; the need to belong, to feel appreciated and to be wanted. Your family, your friends and you, all need to hear those three little words. “I love you.”

The least we can do as individuals is to motivate and inspire another human being!

A candle loses nothing by lighting another!

Cook Maggie The Correct Way

BE AWARE…..!!!

Many of us can’t do without ” Maggi ” especially when one is away from home, in a foreign land. Here is a piece of information 
to share so that we can remove the potential health hazard of consuming Maggi.
Maybe you should print this e-mail to keep as a reminder, pin it up in the kitchen or dining room as reminder or in your purse if you are always travelling.

DO NOT IGNORE THIS… :-

Especially those who fond of Maggi…

CORRECT WAY OF ‘COOKING NOODLES’ :_

The correct way to cook instant noodles without harming our bodies and health: 

Normally, how we cook the instant noodles is to put the noodles into a pot with water, 
throw in the powder and let it cook for around 3 minutes and then it’s ready to eat. 

This is the WRONG method of cooking the instant noodles. 

By doing this, when we actually boil the ingredients in the powder,normally with MSG, 
it will change the molecular structure of the MSG, causing it to be toxic. 

The other thing that you may or may not realize is that, the noodles are coated with wax 
and it will take around 4 to 5 days for the body to excrete the wax after you have eaten 
the noodles.

CORRECT METHOD:

1. Boil the noodles in a pot of water. 

2. Once the noodles are cooked, take out the noodles, and throw away the water which 
contains wax. 

3. Boil another pot of water, add the cooked noodles into the hot boiling water and then 
turn off the stove. 

4. Only at this stage when the stove is off, and while the water is very hot, add the 
flavouring powder into the water, to make noodle soup. 

5. However, if you need dry noodles, remove the noodles and add the flavouring powder 
and toss it to get dry noodles. 

Dietician’s Note: 
If you buy plain hakka noodles which you make, you initially need to boil in water and 
discard the water. This will soften the noodles but to prevent it from sticking we need to 
add a tbsp of oil and also the noodles are deep fried partially to make them crunchy and 
then dusted with flour to prevent them from sticking while boiling. Hence when you buy 
the noodles they are already made unhealthy and this is the type we use to make stir fry 
noodles and the regular Maggie too is made the same way, plus they add MSG / Ajinomoto 
and other chemical preservatives.

A large number of patients with ages ranging from 18-24 years are ending up 
with pancreatitis either as a swelling or infection 
of the pancreas due to regular consumption of instant noodles… 
If the frequency is more than 3 times a week, then it is very hazardous…

Please share this info and help save a life .
