Peroxide VS Bleach

Peroxide VS Bleach

   This was written by my neighbor (a doctor’s wife), and I want to
share it with you.  She was over recently for coffee and smelled the bleach I
was using to clean my toilet and counter tops. This is what she told me:

"I would like to tell you of the benefits of that plain little ole bottle of 3%
peroxide you can get for under $1.00 at any drug store.  What does bleach cost? 
My husband has been in the medical field for over 36 years, and most doctors
don’t tell you about peroxide.

"Have you ever smelled bleach in a doctor’s office?  NO!!!  Why?  Because it
smells, and it is not healthy!  Ask the nurses who work in the doctor’s offices,
and ask them if they use bleach at home.  They are wiser and know better!

"Did you also know bleach was invented in the late 40’s?  It’s chlorine, folks! 
And it was used to kill our troops.

"Peroxide was invented during WWI.  It was used to save and help cleanse the
needs of our troops and hospitals.  Please think about this:

1. Take one capful (the little white cap that comes with the bottle) and
hold in your mouth for 10 minutes daily, then spit it out.  (I do it when I
bathe.)  No more canker sores, and your teeth will be whiter without expensive
pastes. Use it instead of mouthwash..

2. Let your toothbrushes soak in a cup of peroxide to keep them free of
germs.

3. Clean your counters and table tops with peroxide to kill germs and
leave a fresh smell.  Simply put a little on your dishrag when you wipe, or
spray it on the counters.

4. After rinsing off your wooden cutting board, pour peroxide on it to
kill salmonella and other bacteria.

5. I had fungus on my feet for years until I sprayed a 50/50 mixture of
peroxide and water on them (especially the toes) every night and let dry.

6. Soak any infections or cuts in 3% peroxide for five to ten minutes
several times a day. My husband has seen gangrene that would not heal
with any medicine but was healed by soaking in peroxide..

7. Fill a spray bottle with a 50/50 mixture of peroxide and water and
keep it in every bathroom to disinfect without harming your septic
system like bleach or most other disinfectants will.

8. Tilt your head back and spray into nostrils with your 50/50 mixture
whenever you have a cold, plugged sinus.  It will bubble and help to
kill the bacteria.  Hold for a few minutes, and then blow your nose
into a tissue.

9 If you have a terrible toothache and cannot get to a dentist right
away, put a capful of 3% peroxide into your mouth and hold it for ten
minutes several times a day.  The pain will lessen greatly.

10. Put half a bottle of peroxide in your bath to help rid boils, fungus,
or other skin infections.

11. You can also add a cup of peroxide instead of bleach to a load of
whites in your laundry to whiten them.  If there is blood on clothing, pour it
directly on the soiled spot.  Let it sit for a minute, then rub it and rinse
with cold water.   Repeat if necessary.

12. I use peroxide to clean my mirrors.  There is no smearing, which
is why I love it so much for this.

"I could go on and on.  It is a little brown bottle no home should be without!

"With prices of most necessities rising, I’m glad there’s a way to save tons of
money in such a simple, healthy manner!"

This information really woke me up.  I hope you gain something from
it, too.

Pass this on .. and on . and on!

What to take to bed with you – not a joke

What to take to bed with you – not a joke
Pretty neat idea. Never thought of it before.

Put your car keys beside your bed at night

Tell your spouse, your children, your neighbors, your parents, your Dr’s office, the check-out girl at the market, everyone you run across. Put your car keys beside your bed at night.

If you hear a noise outside your home or someone trying to get in your house, just press the panic button for your car. The alarm will be set off, and the horn will continue to sound until either you turn it off or the car battery dies.

This tip came from a neighborhood watch coordinator. Next time you come home for the night and you start to put your keys away, think of this:
It’s a security alarm system that you probably already have and requires no installation. Test it.

It will go off from most everywhere inside your house and will keep honking until your battery runs down or until you reset it with the button on the key fob chain.

It works if you park in your driveway or garage. If your car alarm goes off when someone is trying to break into your house, odds are the burglar/rapist won’t stick around.

After a few seconds all the neighbors will be looking out their windows to see who is out there and sure enough the criminal won’t want that.

And remember to carry your keys while walking to your car in a parking lot. The alarm can work the same way there. This is something that should really be shared with everyone. Maybe it could save a life or a sexual abuse crime.

P.S. I am sending this to everyone I know because I think it is fantastic.

Would also be useful for any emergency, such as a heart attack, where you can’t reach a phone. My Mom has suggested to my Dad that he carry his car keys with him in case he falls outside and she doesn’t hear him. He can activate the car alarm and then she’ll know there’s a problem.

Please pass this on even IF you’ve read it before. It’s a reminder.

Carlos Dews is a professor of English Literature and Chairman of the Department of English Language and Literature at John Cabot University in Rome. He writes as a white man raised in a climate of racism here in the United States.

He also writes as a person who has resisted racism and still fights it every chance he gets. What follows is an article Professor Dews wrote in “Aspenia.” (The Italian Journal published by the Aspen Foundation in Italy) Read more @ Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr.

Racism

Note: This is one of the better articles I have read about racism. This is very real and I would bet there are millions of stories like this that could be told by our white friends who have experienced this. C. Dancy II – DCN Publisher

And after reading through all of your suggestions, we have decided on the final questions – thanks to the help of NAACP’s Willa Reinhard, Lunecee Eligene, Julie Brooks, and Marlyn Tillman.

So without further ado, we bring you the questions of the day for this year’s NAACP Convention:

  • Community – What is the most pressing issue facing communities of color and how can we work together to do something about it?
  • Civil Rights and Advocacy – What does civil and human rights advocacy look like in the 21st century?
  • Inspiration – Who inspires you to be active with the NAACP, and how has your involvement inspired others?
  • Youth – What motivated you to become active with the NAACP and how can the NAACP encourage more youth to become active?
  • Legacy – When you hear the name NAACP, what comes to mind?
  • Responsibility – What are the responsibilities of individuals acting for civil rights and social justice, and what role can you play carrying out the goals of the NAACP in your area?

From a speech by first lady Michelle Obama to engaging youth activists, there are a lot of exciting events planned for this year’s Convention. Even if you miss being there in person, or your question was not chosen, our online portal will keep you engaged.

Stay current on what is happening and be part of the conversation by watching a live stream, reading the blog, or following the action on Twitter.

Two important bills sponsored by Rep. Bryant passed and have been sent to the governor for signature:

Two important bills sponsored by Rep. Bryant passed and have been sent to the governor for signature:

HB 1691- Use of 911 Fundshttp://www.ncleg.net/Sessions/2009/Bills/House/PDF/H1691v6.pdf. The reforms contained in this bill have been a priority of our county governments and telecom providers for almost 10 years and was requested by both Halifax and Nash Counties in District 7.

The bill is the result of an 18 month study process by a task force of the 911 Board and the result of six study committee meetings by the House Select Committee  on the Use of 911 funds that involved Rep. Bryant and former Rep. Lucy Allen. as co-chairs, Reps. Faison, Sager and West.  Rocky Mount Asst. City Manager Charles Penny was a local member of the 911 Board Study Task Force.  The bill represents a consensus approach to move 911 service to the next level and generation in five ways:

1- Improving public safety by creating minimum statewide standards for 911 service.

2- Providing needed funds to our local jurisdictions for any public safety needs, which can include, but are not limited to, radios, microwave links and antennae and towers which are not allowed as 911 fund expenses.  Local jurisdictions may use 50% of their fund balance on the date this act becomes effective for this purpose and have two fiscal years within which to complete these expenditures. This will provide over $50 million to our local jurisdictions for public safety needs.

3- Expands the use of funds distributed to the 911 centers to cover expenses related to the receiving and dispatching of calls within the center and related training. Current funding is limited to equipment related to incoming calls only.

4- Saves costs for local jurisdictions by authorizing the board to engage in statewide projects that will provide economies of scale for all 911 centers as we move to the next generation of technology.

5- Authorizes a new distribution formula for 911 funds that is based on what it actually costs to deliver a minimum standard of service in each jurisdiction.

This bill fully addresses the needs of 120 or so primary 911 Centers around the state and also takes into account the 30-40 secondary 911 centers to the extent they have interlocal funding agreements with primary centers. The bill also provides for the study of the needs of secondary 911 Centers.  We are continuing to move forward in a transition from before 2007 when each locality assessed its own 911 fee for land lines ranging from 50 cents/line to $3/line, and the board collected a separate wireless fee of 70 cents/line. In 2007 legislation we moved to a combined statewide 911 fee that is capped at $.70/subscriber for land line and wire line service and is still distributed to local 911 Centers based on a base amount equal to the fees they collected for fiscal year 06-07 under their varied fee assessments. The new distribution method will be designed and based on the amount it actually costs each unique  jurisdiction to deliver the 911 service in its area and meet standards and changing technology requirements.

HB 2066 – Special Retirement Allowancehttp://www.ncleg.net/Sessions/2009/Bills/House/PDF/H2066v5.pdf; This bill was requested by Angela Reid with the Rocky Mt. Dept of Human Resources and will be a benefit for all state and local government employees.

  1. Allows all state and local government employees to make a one-time transfer of any portion of their 401K or 457 funds to the appropriate retirement system for one payment. This benefit is similar to the special allowance that law enforcement retirees have always had and is now also expanded for them to allow any part of the 401K to be transferred instead of requiring all of the fund to be transferred.
  2. The payment to the employee is for their lifetime with two options for a guaranteed return of their transferred amount to fully protect their heirs or estate.  The same survivor options will be available as with regular retirement as well as options for cost of living (COLA) increases.
  3. The retirement system is authorized to charge a one-time fee for the transfer limited to the actual administrative costs of the transfer.
  4. The transfer can be made at any time during the retirement.
  5. The retirement board is required to provide educational materials to explain the relationship between the transferred amount and the monthly benefit and to explain the impact of this election on heirs and beneficiaries and the impact of any costs and fees involved.
  6. The benefit becomes effective on Jan. 1, 2011.
