How to naturally treat ADHD with OPCs

sad-adhd_child

Do you have a daydreamer child? Or how about a child easily distracted during daily tasks at school or even home? If yes, you may have an ADHD child. Children with ADHD have unique brainwave patterns that make concentrating and being attentive challenging. It can even cause sudden spikes in anxiety. Some side effects of ADHD are achievement drops, frequent frustrations and poor grades in school. Your child may even experience a negative cycle of these side effects.

Fortunately, there’s a natural way to recalibrate the brain waves that cause ADHD as powerful organic antioxidants called Oligomeric Proanthocyadinidins  (OPCs) are scientifically proven to boost the brain waves of ADHD children—without the side effects of commonly prescribed stimulants.

WHAT ARE OPCs?

OPCs are completely natural plant extracts that have a powerful, scientifically proven, and very positive effect on human brain waves. Learn more about OPCs as a treatment option for ADHD children.

‘Blue Wave’: How the Democrats swept into local and state office

Blue_Wave_Democracy

This week a  ‘Blue Wave’ swept Democrats into office at nearly every level of local and state government, including Flippable’s state legislative targets in Virginia and Washington State. Flippable broke down everything from turnout to individual candidate strategy, to margins of victory to fundraising stats. The breakdown helps paint the reality of the wins while explaining a bit of how we got here. The clearest takeaway is this: there is another way to win state-wide races and generate energy around to win local races that will have ripple effects all the way *up* the ballot. Flippable co-founder Catherine Vaughan had this to say about the results:

“[ The] massive wins were unprecedented, and they are a vital input into our plan for next year. Progressives demonstrated the power of a coordinated, down-ballot-focused movement to transform outrage into a targeted, successful electoral strategy. We’ve shown that we can rebuild democracy from the ground up, with energy for local candidates working its way up the ballot.

With a dozen seats under our belt this year, Flippable plans to scale to 100 seats in 2018, with an eye on flipping or breaking supermajorities in 15-20 chambers that we need to pass progressive policies and undo Republican gerrymandering and voter suppression efforts.”

Now Digitally Available: Historic TV Coverage of Senate Watergate Hearings

Watergate historical TV coverage

The Library of Congress and Boston public broadcaster WGBH announced this month gavel-to-gavel television coverage of the Senate Watergate hearings in 1973. The television recordings that were donated to the Library by WETA Washington, D.C., has been digitally preserved and made available online. Produced by the National Public Affairs Center for Television (NPACT), the hearings were taped during the day and rebroadcast every evening on public television for 51 days, from May 17 to Nov. 15.  Do you know the Watergate broadcasts became one of the most popular series in public broadcasting history?

For the first time in 44 years, these riveting moments in history will once again be available to the American public through an online presentation—“Gavel-to-Gavel: The Watergate Scandal and Public Television”—on the American Archive of Public Broadcasting (AAPB) website at americanarchive.org/exhibits/watergate.

AAPB is a collaboration between the Library of Congress and WGBH to preserve and make accessible significant at-risk public media.

The presentation will provide access to all the coverage, a highlights reel, episode guide and an essay putting the coverage into historical perspective.  Visitors to the online exhibit—curated by 2017 Library of Congress Junior Fellow Amanda Reichenbach—will see firsthand the memorable personalities involved in this national drama and the revelations that ultimately led to resignation of President Richard Nixon.

Each episode of the coverage begins with about five minutes of commentary by MacNeil and Lehrer, including a recap of what happened during that day’s hearing.  The hearings range from two to seven hours in length.  The anchors close out with a 10- to 20-minute wrap-up with experts and interviews conducted by correspondent Peter Kaye.  The Senate Watergate Committee conducted its investigation in three phases: Watergate (May 17 – Sept. 25), Campaign Practices or “Dirty Tricks” (Sept. 26 – Nov. 6) and Campaign Finance (Nov. 7 – Nov. 15).  Coverage by NPACT of the subsequent House impeachment hearings in May and July 1974 also has been digitized and made available online.

Everything you need to know about restaurant decor

restaurant decor tips for beginners

First impressions matter and if you are in the food business you want to make the right one. Here are some quick tips to help improve your restaurant decor.

Create Efficient Restaurant Layouts

The overall layout of a restaurant is a crucial aspect of any interior design task because you do not want restaurant staff members and customers colliding everywhere in the restaurant. The most efficient restaurant layouts are organize to help staff members operate smoothly while granting customers easy access to their tables and the restroom. Additionally you can alter your restaurant’s layout to improve circulation. Here’s how:

  • Focus on the tables and seats ensuring there is sufficient room to accommodate your preferred restaurant capacity. If your restaurant doesn’t have enough floor space, consider the position of your counter and whether or not it could be relocated to create more room.

Focus on Concept

Your restaurant’s concept is equally important to the layout because it helps set you apart from other culinary services within your locality.

If you can easily overcome the temptation to keep things ordinary, you will have the opportunity to create the right balance between a bit of unique inspiration and the typical expectations of any restaurant.

Often restaurant owners prioritize the best cuisine when opening up a restaurant. By focusing on concept, you will create an opportunity to develop a concept that will be a true reflection of the regular meals you will serve. Remember, links to any foreign country must be accompanied by an interior that has the same atmosphere.

Decorate with a theme in mind

Decoration often goes together with your concept of choice. Once you have settled on an overall restaurant theme, you should think of ways to enhance its atmosphere with several decorative features.

For instance, if you’re based in a period… maybe 17th century London locality, you will want features distinctive to the 17th century – artwork, walls or vintage furnishings. The same applies to a classic 50’s Italian bar, which would likely have artwork from Pablo Picasso and tons of Mediterranean colour schemes. Alternatively, a modern looking space may work well with one of these water walls from Luxe Water Walls.

Take Advantage of Window Displays

While window displays are hugely underrated, the truth is that they have the potential to attract bypassers who initially had no interest in checking into your restaurant. Window displays are one of the first things a customer will see when standing outside your restaurant. A unique and attractive window design has a greater chance of enhancing the curiosity of a customer.

Window displays should have no shade so that your potential customers will have the chance to peep through the inside and imagine what it would be like if they went inside. While displays can be huge and imposing, they should not block out natural light because it will decrease the attractiveness to potential customers.

Professional Assistance for Restaurant Decor

One of the biggest mistakes beginners make when starting their restaurant business is seeking assistance from amateur services in the build and interior design industries. You do not know how much this move could cost you, so it is always advisable to hire knowledgeable, skilled and reputable experts to help with opening your restaurant.

Although your budget will be expensive from hiring professionals, it is worth it. You can complete the whole design process with the aid of specialist architectural designers and experienced professionals. Better yet, having all experts on site at the same time will help enhance the final results.

By adhering to this help guideline, you will achieve the best possible results with your restaurant. Yes, that means having an attractive interior design that is capable of infatuating any passersby or potential customer looking for a place to have a quick meal. Remember, the appearance of your restaurant must be complemented by food that matches the interior design’s level of quality. If you’re able to complete a breathtaking restaurant interior design job, you must also be sure to please your customers with a delicious cuisine. Good luck with your restaurant decor adventures.
