Category: 

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (ADAMS) – Indiana’s unemployment rate stands at 3.2 percent for November and remains lower than the national rate of 3.5 percent. The monthly unemployment rate is a U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) indicator that reflects the number of unemployed people seeking employment within the prior four weeks as a percentage of the labor force. Anyone can face an emergency situation when they need cash fast and without questions. And in such cases most people decide to apply for bad credit unsecured Payday Loans in Indiana. Short-term cash advance is legal though in some way restricted in Indiana. The interest rate is capped to 15% by the Code §§ 24-4-4.5-7-101 et seq. It's aimed at protecting the consumers from predatory lenders. 

Indiana’s labor force had a net increase of 346 over the previous month. This was a result of an increase of 308 unemployed residents and an increase of 38 employed residents. Indiana’s total labor force, which includes both Hoosiers employed and those seeking employment, stands at 3.38 million, and the state’s 64.4 percent labor force participation rate remains above the national rate of 63.2 percent.

The First Few Weeks Of Motherhood Are Critical. Here’s Why

The First Few Weeks Of Motherhood Are Critical. Here’s Why

Parents instinctively know that the first few weeks of their child’s life are essential. But why is this the case? Why do those early days and months matter so much to development years in the future? After all, babies can barely perceive the world after they come out of the womb. 
It All Comes Down To Protection And Stress
Being a great mama is essential during the first few weeks of life, but it is not always for the reasons that you think. It’s not just about providing the basics, like food and shelter. It is also about offering emotional support that allows the child to develop a robust and confident character. 
Being there for your infant, therefore, is the most important thing that you can do.

Scientists believe that the reason the first few weeks are critical all comes down to the biology of survival. Infants born during times of hardship need to develop differently from those who grow up in times of plenty. If babies detect that the outside world is a scary and hostile place, then their bodies will ramp up the production of stress hormones. They’ll go into rapid growth mode, trying to get as big and as strong as they can as fast as possible to deal with any potential threats. The problem is that this doesn’t switch off later in life, leading to both mental and physical health problems down the road.

How to stay safe and sane during coronavirus isolation, according to science

How to stay safe and sane during coronavirus isolation, according to science
People who suspect they may have come into contact with the coronavirus are being advised to self-isolate (stay at home) for 14 days. For some people, the idea of self-isolation may seem like a dream come true. For others, the idea of being cut off from the outside world, alone, or with only a few close family members, will fill them with dread – ask any parent who has had to entertain two small children at home on a wet afternoon.
When people are stuck indoors for long periods of time, they can report getting “cabin fever” or feel like they are going “stir crazy.” Observations from actual or simulated space missions or people living in confined spaces, such as those spending a winter on polar stations, also suggest that some people may find self-isolating more difficult than others. However, there are some simple measures that you can take to help you adapt.
1. Boost your immune system
Research on the effects of loneliness suggests that when people lack social connections they are more likely to suffer from physical health problems. For example, older adults who can’t leave their homes due to impaired mobility are more susceptible to illness, such as heart disease. And studies have found that polar research crews can suffer from reductions in their immune system.

Healthy Protein Sources

Category: 

Healthy protein does not mean mixing up protein powders every morning. In fact, I discourage my clients from using this shortcut. Many protein powders have a lot of added sugar and other artificial ingredients.

Harvard Health warns of some possible hidden dangers of using this protein :

What are the Risks?

There are numerous risks to consider when using a protein powder. Among them:

  • A protein powder is a dietary supplement. The FDA leaves it up to manufacturers to evaluate the safety and labeling of products. So there’s no way to know if a protein powder contains what manufacturers claim.
  • We don’t know the long-term effects. There are limited data on the possible side effects of high protein intake from supplements.
  • It may cause digestive distress. People with dairy allergies or trouble digesting lactose can experience gastrointestinal discomfort if they use a milk-based protein powder.
  • It may be high in added sugars and calories. Some protein powders have little added sugar, and others have a lot (as much as 23 grams per scoop). Some protein powders wind up turning a glass of milk into a drink with more than 1,200 calories.
  • The risk: weight gain and an unhealthy spike in blood sugar. The American Heart Association recommends a limit of 24 grams of added sugar per day for women and 36 grams for men.

Some Personal DIY Projects I Came Up With To Protect Yourself During The Current Pandemic

Category: 

The current pandemic we’re all living through caught a lot of us by surprise.  Yeah, we heard about it coming from China, and then learned that other countries were seeing their citizens spreading it through their populations.

When it hit the United States, specifically in Washington state, we started to get the feeling that this thing is real.

That’s when the Fake News media began over-hyping it to help the Democrats beat President Trump in November.  That’s not even up for debate.  That’s what they were doing.

So, people rushed out to the stores to buy everything they thought they would need in case we were to be quarantined for a long duration.  The whole buying 200 rolls of toilet paper thing will never make sense to me, but it is what it is.

Now, we are at a point where most supermarkets have bare shelves.  This was our Wegmans supermarket last week:

Michigan Attorney General Nessel Appeals Line Five Court of Claims Decision

Category: 

by Bruce Walker
 
Michigan’s attorney general is appealing a ruling in the ongoing battle over a proposed tunnel beneath the Straits of Mackinac.
At issue is the Enbridge Line 5 oil and natural gas pipeline, which has spanned Michigan’s Upper and Lower peninsulas since 1953. After the line was struck by a tugboat anchor in 2018, Enbridge announced plans to replace the current line situated on the lakebed with a tunnel buried 100 feet beneath the bedrock.
In late 2018, then-Gov. Rick Snyder’s administration amended Public Act 214 of 1952, which originally sanctioned the construction of the Mackinac Bridge. The amended act authorized the building of the Enbridge Line 5 tunnel.
After taking office on Jan. 1, 2019, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and Attorney General Dana Nessel began a united attempt to unravel the deal. In March 2019, Nessel issued a formal opinion that the amendment violated Michigan’s Constitution because the initial Public Act is specific to the Mackinac Bridge as explicitly stated in the Act’s official title.
Enbridge sued in June 2019, and Michigan Court of Claims Judge Michael J. Kelly ruled in the company’s favor and against Nessel last October, prompting the attorney general’s brief filed on Thursday in the Michigan Court of Appeals.
According to the AG’s brief: “Michigan’s Constitution provides that ‘[n]o law shall embrace more than one object, which shall be expressed in its title. No bill shall be altered or amended on its passage through either house so as to change its original purpose as determined by its total content and not alone by its title.’”
