For many, the college experience remains one of the most fun times of their lives. However, for others, attending college comes with a number of difficult experiences that can cause a great deal of anxiety. Dealing with social interactions, the pressures of studying, having to work a part-time job while attending classes can all lead to developing an anxiety disorder in college. While some may dismiss the onset of anxiety as a “weakness,” the fact remains that anxiety must be taken seriously and proper treatment should be sought. If not, the ability to perform at the best of your abilities in school will be greatly hampered.

Unfortunately, for many dealing with an anxiety disorder in college, the treatment sought is often worse than the condition. That is to say, the will seek a professional who will supply them with antidepressant or anti-anxiety medication that often does much more harm than good. In some instances, the mental effect that these prescriptions deliver can be problematic. Some students will feel “doped up” while others will feel over stimulated. Then, there are long-term health issues these drugs can have on the body as well. As such, it is best to explore natural remedies for anxiety since they can often reduce problems associated with anxiety while not delivering any unfortunate side effects.

Often, something as simple as controlled breathing can work wonders for reducing anxiety. Slow and deep breaths can help a person calm down and become placid. Simply closing one’s eyes and engaging in deep breathing while simultaneously counting backwards from 10 to zero can often deliver much needed results.

For those looking for something more active and disciplined as a means of dealing with an anxiety disorder in college, it can be a wise idea to take part in meditation. Meditation provides a very easy way to put the noise one may be experiencing in the mind to rest. Often, it is a great deal of unrest and clutter in one’s head that can lead to an anxious state. Meditation can provide the gateway to calming the churned mind. In the past, venues where one could learn to meditate were rare. Today, however, yoga and pilates present a fun and enjoyable way to take part in these activities. Of course, reading a little bit about Zen can also help educate you in the strategies of meditation.

One of the most tried and true staples of dealing with anxiety is to take part in an exercise program. Exercise has the potential to free one’s body and mind from pent up, excess stress and energy. Your exercise programs also need not be anything strenuous. Even a very light exercise program can help reduce an anxiety disorder in college.

Also, avoid all those energy drinks when you plan to stay up late at night studying for a test. Whenever you are dealing with an anxiety related condition, it is best to avoid any product that is high in caffeine. Caffeine makes people nervous and agitated, which can significantly increase anxiety. As such, one’s use of caffeine should be limited.

It is never easy to deal with an anxiety disorder in college. However, there are ways to alleviate the problem safely and naturally. It is these methods that are recommended the most.

Guess what? I want to help you naturally cure your anxiety too! My friend has a story about how she cured her anxiety and panic attacks naturally by clicking on the links below that will take you to her blog:

You will have seen them on TV, in newspapers, magazines and heard them advertised on the radio. The big question is do slimming aids really work? We have all seen the amazing claims of someone who bought a miracle pill online and now they are thin enough to be a catwalk supermodel, but unless you are very naive you will realise that there might have been a bit of an exaggeration of the truth going on. This article is just a quick guide to slimming aids and to find out if they really work.

How many dieters do you know that have successfully slimmed down to their desired weight? Of those dieters how many slimmed down using slimming aids alone? You will probably find the answer to that one is none. The people who have success with diet supplements are the ones who use them as intended; to aid slimming efforts, not just relying on them and them alone to lose weight.

Slimming pills, herbal teas and other miraculous drugs can only get you so far, you need to try to make positive changes in your life as well to see the desired effects. If you use slimming aids in conjunction with eating more healthy foods, an increase in exercise and changes in your lifestyle you will be setting yourself up for success. Even making simple changes like eating smaller portion sizes, going out for a brisk 30 minute walk and cutting back on sugary, fat loaded foods will make a tremendous difference to your weight loss program.

If you decide to use slimming aids make sure you carefully research them because different aids work in different ways. Some use a process called thermogenesis to burn off extra calories while others bind to the fat in your stomach reducing the amount of fat your body actually absorbs. There are slimming aids which help you to suppress feelings of hunger or that make you feel full even if you’re not. The key to successful dieting with slimming products is really moderation, be sensible and use your chosen product as directed. Combine it with a healthy diet and regular exercise and it’s highly likely you’ll become the next weight loss success story!

PCs hate dust, but they are very good at accumulating it. Every time their internal fans turn, drawing in air to keep its inner workings cool, they also draw in thousands of dust particles as well. You may have heard before that dust can slow a computer down and affect its performance but how bad is the dust problem really?

One of a computer repair person’s most common tasks is to clean out a dirty, dusty PC. Given that dust is the documented number one cause of PC failure, it is a frequent issue that a computer tech encounters when he or she first opens up a PC case to begin a diagnosis.

Just how badly dust affects a computer’s performance was recently explained to me by a friend who makes a very nice living from repairing all kinds of computers, many suffering from problems related to dust disease.

He had a personal computer in the shop because its owner felt it was running too slowly and various software fixes did not seem to be improving matters very much.

As I had been asking about the effect of dust on the average computer my friend said this might be a good machine to run a simple test on, as it belonged to a person who had a habit of smoking around his computer. My friend said even before opening it up he was pretty sure he was going to find a good amount of dust inside. Sure enough there was. The dust was present in layers of varying thickness all over the inside of the computer. The fans were covered in a dark brown layer so thick I was personally surprised that they were working at all.

To run his test the tech closed the case back up and took measurements of the CPU temperature and fan speed that the computer was currently running at without any programs running at all. The CPU clocked in at 118.4° F (48° C) and the fan speed was 2,857 rpm.

The clean up took a while, not such great news for the owner since my friend charges by the hour, but I was impressed by just how clean the CPU and heat sinks looked once he was done. Painstakingly he cleared as much of the dirt dust and grime out of computer’s insides as he could.

Once he was done he closed the case and ran his measurements again. The CPU was now running at 102.2° F (39° C) and the fans at 3,276 rpm. A simple cleaning had reduced the temperature of the CPU by an extra 16.2° F (9° C) and increased the fan speed by 419 rpm.

According to my friend, this simple cleaning would increase the speed of the computer and the response times of the programs it ran, as well as extending the life of the CPU and its heat sink fans. The cost? Two hours at $ 60 an hour. As a bonus my friend said he would be giving the newly speedy PC’s owner a couple of tips when he returned to pick it up. Firstly, don’t smoke around it, but even if you stop that the dust will still build up again if left unchecked. Secondly, he was also going to give the owner a sample of a product he had recently encountered, a self stick filter that cost under $ 10 for 3 sheets that went over the computer’s air intakes to trap dust before it entered.

Denzel Washington is a celebrity poker player and a type of guy everyone wants at their home-game. He appears to be an fun, affable sports fan — he actively roots for the Knick and the Yankees — that can easily pull off all the moves needed to be a successful poker player. When he needs to be tough and mean at the table, he can tap into his Frank Lucas character from American Gangster. When he wants to be smooth, channel his Inside Man and Devil in a Blue Dress roles. And when he goes all in at the end to knock you out of the game, he’ll summon a quiet, dignified, steely resolve that’s all Denzel.

Other than being one of the best actors on the face of the earth, Denzel has stayed remarkably humble. He’s portrayed great men such as Malcom X and Hurricane Carter to name a few and has done the roles justice where most would surely have failed! Denzel Washington is one of the most highly respected actors of the 90’s, Denzel has mastered the art of storytelling; whether in action films, thrillers, or social awareness-themed films. Being recognized for his work with countless nominations and awards, Denzel is also admired by the industry as one of the most souhth-after actor in Hollywood.

Before hitting it big as Dr. Phillip Chandler on the NBC drama St. Elsewhere (which can be considered his claim to fame), Washington appeared in the made-for-TV movie Wilma and a production of Coriolanus at a Shakespeare Festival. He appeared on the big screen for the first time in the 1981 film Carbon Copy.

During his six years on St. Elsewhere, Washington used his summertime breaks to work on his film career. He starred in 1987’s Cry Freedom (which earned him an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor), but it was his Oscar-winning portrayal (in the category of Best Supporting Actor) of a runaway slave in the 1989 historical drama, Glory, that ensured movie audiences and critics would not ignore the star that was in the making.

In the ’90s Denzel Washington’s name appeared on the credits of many diversified films. He starred in three Spike Lee joints: Mo’ Better Blues; Malcolm X (for which his title role garnered Washington Best Actor awards from the New York Critics Circle, Boston Film Critics Association and an Oscar nomination); and He Got Game.

Washington showed his star appeal in action films and thrillers such as The Pelican Brief, co-starring Julia Roberts, Crimson Tide, Courage Under Fire, The Siege, Fallen, and The Bone Collector with Angelina Jolie. He also charmed audiences in the romantic film, The Preacher’s Wife, opposite pop-diva Whitney Houston, and revisited Shakespeare in the comedy Much Ado About Nothing.

In more serious roles, Washington equally never disappoints. His role in the critically acclaimed drama Philadelphia, as the lawyer defending Tom Hanks’ HIV-infected character won rave reviews, while his 1999 portrayal of wrongfully accused champion boxer Rubin “Hurricane” Carter in The Hurricane, earned him the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor, and an Oscar nomination in the same category.

The role also gave him a new six-pack after having trained for a year and a half with a boxing trainer in preparation for the role. After a role as Herman Boone in 2000’s Remember the Titans, Washington starred as the title role in John Q.. His performance in Training Day garnered him the Best Actor Oscar in 2002, making him the first African-American actor to receive the honor in 40 years, since Sidney Poitier. Because of his pay-or-play deal on the doomed 2005 American Gangster project (which was to be directed by Antoine Fuqua), he was paid $20 million even though the film did not move ahead.…
