Photoessay: Architectural snippets, Singapore — Ming Thein | Photographer

I like to think of this kind of image as little microcosms of environment – not quite a full wimmelbild, but more a degustation of the little area in which the image was captured. The images presented today are on a few different scales – everything from fairly intimate upwards. I think they’re fairly representative […]

Its a normal cycle, sometimes we are at the bottom of the wheel, sometimes we are at the top.

Watching your thoughts during hard times. — Cristian Mihai

Originally posted on Reimagine Therapy: It is completely understandable not loving what we are going through sometimes, but if we love ourselves during it, things actually become a lot more endurable.

The Community United For Health And Prevention welcome the idea of the Center For Disease Control to control mosquitoes at home. Controlling mosquitoes at home is good but not good enough to control mosquito borne diseases. This intervention would be good if the people had to stay only at home and never go out. As soon as they are out their chance of acquiring mosquito borne diseases is still high. Mosquitoes have been around since the beginning of the world, they fly and they continue to multiply exponentially. They are vectors of several diseases. Few Public Health interventions have been done to control the mosquitoes.None of them was successful because these interventions were not global. To control mosquito borne diseases, health professionals have to consider the mosquitoes a Public issue and allocate funds to go after the mosquitoes around the globe in order to decrease mosquito population. By decreasing the mosquito population, the incidence of mosquito borne diseases will decrease automatically. Attempts were made in the past to control malaria, a mosquito borne disease. Malaria is still around because this intervention was not global. Aware of this mosquito Public Health Problem, the Community United For Health And Prevention, Incorporated (CUFHAP) would like to implement EVR (Eradication, Vaccination,Research).

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew and shows Great Malvern Priory. He tells me that when Henry VIII’s men came to sell off Great Malvern Priory, they accepted £20 from the parish for the Priory church (after removing the lead from the roof!) We had one of those days which the weather gods […]
