Corliss Group Online Financial Mag Hong Kong 5 Can’t Miss Investing Stories Last Week Let the good times roll! The S&P/TSX Composite Index (TSX:^OSPTX) continued its month-long winning streak last week with the equity gauge nearing a three-year high. However, there were a number of important corporate reports for investors to shift through as well. Here are the top five can’t-miss headlines from the past week. 1. BlackBerry signals shift to enterprise Shares of BlackBerry (TSX:BB)(NYSE:BBRY) rallied this week, up almost 8%, after a series of interesting product announcements. New Chief Executive John Chen unveiled several new initiatives at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona including a new Q20 model that brings back its “classic” keyboard and a cheaper Z3 BlackBerry that will cost under US$200. The company is also releasing BBM for enterprise users and revamping its BlackBerry Enterprise Server. These new initiatives suggest that Mr. Chen’s focus is squarely on the corporate
Pumps may be classified in two general types, dynamic and positive displacement. Positive displacement pumps are those in which energy is imparted to the liquid in a fixed displacement volume, such as a casing or a cylinder, by the rotary motion of gears, screws, or vanes, or by reciprocating pistons or plungers. Centrifugal pumps are dynamic pumps. Energy is imparted to the liquid by means of a disk with curved vanes rotating on a shaft called the impeller. The impeller imparts kinetic energy to the fluid by means of its shape and high rotational velocity. This energy is transformed to pressure energy when the fluid reaches the pump casing (see Figure 1-12). The pressure head difference between the inlet and the outlet, or Total Head produced by the pump, is proportional to the impeller speed and diameter. Therefore, to obtain a higher head, the rotational speed or the impeller diameter can be increased. To learn more about how a centrifugal pump increases a fluid's pressure, see reference 15. How a pump produces pressure is beyond the scope of this book, but an interesting experiment you can try at home will illustrate a similar process. A small plastic bottle is required to which a string is attached. Twist a rubber band around the bottle’s neck a few times and attach two 3-foot long strings, one on each side of the glass. Tie the other ends of the string together, fill the glass half full with water and hold it suspended from the strings. Start spinning. As you may have guessed, the fluid inside the glass will become pressurized. How do you know that the fluid is pressurized? To prove it to yourself, make a very small hole in the glass bottom. Make the hole just large enough for water to dribble through. Now spin the glass again. The water will spray out of the glass bottom no matter what its position, up or down. ...

Continue to use a scale and measuring cups consistently to keep yourself in check. HIGH FAT FOODS • • • • • • • • • • • Fast food Dining out often Fried foods Creams & Gravies Foods made with cream or gravy High fat dairy (cheese, ice cream) Junk food (chips ect..) Donuts, cakes, cookies, pastries, chocolate High fat meats like bacon and sausage High fat casseroles High fat convenient foods (frozen pizza, boxed meals) Do not fill up on empty calorie foods that are high in calories and low in nutritional value. Avoid the so called “Junk” foods that are high in fat and sugar. CONSUMING HIGH FAT FOOD ON A REGULAR BASIS WILL HELP YOU RE-GAIN YOUR WEIGHT. The food you eat should be as healthy as possible. Your small stomach pouch can only hold about a 1 cup – 1 ¼ cup of food. Therefore your goal is to attain the highest quality nutrient intake with a minimal volume of food. Your meal plan needs to be high in protein, vitamins and other important nutrients to be successful at attaining a healthy lifestyle. To increase satiety, try to plan meals and snacks by combining carbohydrate foods with protein, fiber and a small amount of fat. A well planned meal should satisfy feelings of hunger for three to four hours and provide the energy you need as you progress through the day. Sources of carbohydrates and fiber include whole grains, fruits and vegetables. Protein sources are lean meats, meat substitutes and low fat dairy.
Fit and Fat? Yes, you can be fit and overweight within reason. The trick is to control your weight so you can be physically active. There are plenty of people who get regular physical activity, yet they are overweight. A recent study showed people who are fit and carrying extra pounds may not be at increased risk of developing or dying from heart disease or cancer when compared to people of healthy weight.1 Likewise, thin people are not necessarily healthy if they carry excess belly fat. What matters more than weight is the amount and type of body fat. Studies show that fat around the midsection or belly fat may be more harmful than fat elsewhere on the body.2 Why? Belly or visceral fat embedded into muscles and around vital organs can have a metabolic impact compared to subcutaneous fat, which is the type of fat that simply sits beneath the skin like on your hips. Abdominal fat is also a predictor of risk for obesity-related diseases such as Type 2 diabetes, elevated cholesterol, high blood pressure and heart disease. Generally ladies should strive for a waist circumference below 35 inches and men, 40 inches according to the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. Eat Whatever You Want As Long You Exercise It might sound logical that if you work out, you can eat whatever you want, but this is usually not the most effective way to lose weight. Believe it or not, it is easier not to eat the chocolate cake than it is to burn it off. One slice of decadent chocolate cake could contain as many as 500 calories and require up to five miles of jogging to burn it off. Losing weight occurs when you create a calorie deficit either by eating fewer calories, burning calories through exercise or a combination of both. Diet plans that include cutting calories and regular physical activity tend to be the most successful and sustainable. Further, the quality of the food you consume and regular physical activity are important to overall health, regardless of weight. So the next time you want to indulge in a calorie-rich food or beverage, enjoy a smaller portion and account for it in your daily calorie budget. Health Only Improves When You Lose Lots of Weight Seeking to reach your healthy weight is an excellent goal in support of good health. However, you may benefit from losing as little as 5-10 percent of your body weight. Studies show that even small amounts of weight loss may improve blood cholesterol levels, blood sugar levels, blood pressure and lower risk for heart disease. Celebrate small victories on your journey toward a healthier weight. The payoff – people who lose weight slowly are more likely to keep it off. Skipping Breakfast Slashes Calories Studies show that breakfast eaters have healthier weights compared to breakfast skippers. Skipping breakfast or any meal usually results in overeating later in the day. Enjoying a nutritious meal in the morning sets the stage for the day. A breakfast that contains protein and fiber may keep blood sugar levels stable and hunger at bay until lunchtime. Your blood sugar and energy levels are low when you wake up in the morning. To get your body moving and energized after a long night’s rest, you need fuel in the form of a healthy breakfast. Another benefit, people who eat breakfast tend to have healthier diets overall, ones that are higher in nutrients. Breakfast may help you keep the weight off. We have learned from successful losers, the National Weight Control Registry of those who have lost weight and kept it off, make eating breakfast a daily habit. Reconsider where you slash calories in your diet and keep in mind you may save calories if you start your day the healthy way with a nutritious and delicious breakfast.

Diet & Supplements Drink a glass of water immediately upon rising Ideally, the water should be distilled. Absolutely no tap water. This starts the body’s metabolism and cleansing. Eat a big breakfast It is interesting to note that 80 percent of the people who are overweight eat a small breakfast or none at all. Eighty percent of thin people eat a large breakfast. Your breakfast should consist of as much as you want of the following items. Everything listed should be organic. Apples, pears, berries, kiwis, pineapples, grapefruit, plums, peaches, prunes, figs, rye bread, raw butter (raw means not pasteurized and not homogenized), raw milk, plain yogurt (this means no sugar or fruit), wild smoked salmon, beef in any form as long as it’s organic, chicken in any form as long as it’s organic, lamb in any form as long as it’s organic, tuna, sardines, eggs, tomatoes, peppers, salsa, celery, carrots, any vegetable, potatoes in limited amounts, coffee in limited amounts made with pure water not tap water with raw milk or cream and raw evaporated sugar cane juice or honey as a sweetener, real tea (not tea in tea bags). Drink 8 glasses of water each day People think drinking water will make them gain weight and be bloated. The exact opposite is true. If you are overweight you need to flush the toxins from your fat cells. Water is absolutely needed for you to lose weight. Eat organic grapefruits all day Remember the grapefruit diet? Well, it appears that there actually is an enzyme in grapefruits that burns fat. Eating grapefruits all day, as many and as often as you desire, will speed the fat burning process. Take digestive enzymes If you are overweight there is an excellent chance your body is not producing enough digestive enzymes, causing you to gain weight, feel bloated, have gas, indigestion, and constipation. Go to your health food store and inquire. Try several kinds to see which one works best for you. Eat organic apples all day The old saying is true – an apple a day keeps the doctor away. Apples are loaded with fiber and nutrients; they normalize your blood sugar and decrease your appetite. You should eat at least one apple every day. The more the better. Eat only organic meat, poultry & fish One of the reasons you are overweight is because of the growth hormone put in meat and poultry. If you want to lose weight, eat as much meat and poultry as you like as long as it is organic, grass fed, ideally kosher, and most importantly, has not been given growth hormone. The fish you eat should not be farm raised. Eat a huge salad at lunch & dinner I don’t care if your lunch is a cheeseburger, French fries, and a pint of ice cream, add to it a big, huge salad and eat that first. You’ll be amazed that you lose weight. The salad can contain anything you like as long as it is only vegetables and they are organic. The salad dressing should be organic olive oil and freshly squeezed lemon juice, or organic vinegar. If you really want to speed the weight loss process use organic apple cider vinegar. Add some organic sea salt, fresh ground pepper, or some garlic for taste. ...
