Irritable bowel syndrome, or IBS, is a gastrointestinal disorder caused by irritable and irregular movement of the small and large intestines. It can also be called spastic colon and mucous colitis. Some signs of IBS are stomach cramping or pain, constipation, bloating, gas, mucous in the stool, nausea, headaches, depression, and fatigue. The reasons for irritable bowel syndrome are not known, but nervousness, frustration, or anger can add to it. Drinking too much coffee and eating raw fruits, cruciferous vegetables, or dairy products may make the problem worse. Here are some easy and natural cures for those suffering from IBS. Yogurt Yogurt that has ‘live cultures’ can help cure diarrhea that comes from IBS. This is because live cultures are good bacteria that add a layer of protection in the intestines, and help make lactic acid to clean the body from germs. Yogurt could be eaten plain, or made into a smoothie. Eat it a few times a day until you feel better. Flaxseed Because flaxseeds have dietary fibers, they help the body send out waste quickly and smoothly. Flaxseeds also have a lot of omega- 3 essential fatty acids that help the immune system and the digestive system stay strong. For these reasons flaxseeds are great for treating constipation and diarrhea. Take one tablespoon of freshly ground flaxseed with water once a day. Peppermint Peppermint can help with cramping, bloating, and diarrhea that come from IBS. A study written in the British Medical Journal found that fiber, antispasmodics, and peppermint oil all help treat Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Peppermint oil has menthol oil, which eases cramps or spasms in the smooth muscles of the digestive tract. This stops bloating, gas, pain, and intestinal cramps. Peppermint can also help food pass Fennel Seeds Fennel seeds can stop the intestinal spasms, or tightening, and bloating that come with IBS. It can also help send fats out of the digestive system, and therefore stop the body from making too much mucous, which can cause IBS. Ginger Because ginger can lessen gas and bloating, it is used as a cure for IBS. Also, ginger can lower the swelling in the intestines, and loosen up the intestinal muscles. Cabbage Juice Cabbage juice is a great way to treat constipation that comes from IBS. This is because raw cabbage juice has sulfur and chlorine. These help clean the mucous membrane of the stomach and intestinal tract. Because cabbage juice works as a laxative, it makes bowel movements softer an easier to pass, and keeps the body hydrated. To stop you from getting irritable bowel syndrome, you need to always have a good diet and a healthy lifestyle. Anything that can stop you from getting stressed, like exercising or meditating, is a good way to help with bowel discomfort, because it will keep your intestines running in a regular way.

NDP Leader Lorraine Michael questions Natural Resource Minister Tom Marshall about Husky possibly building a natural gas plant in Newfoundland and Labrador. First Mr. Marshall dismisses it as not being a priority. Then he admits such a plant would be a boon to the economy. Problem is, the PCs don't want to see natural gas. Natural gas was dismissed as a Muskrat Falls alternative because there was NO INTEREST in developing it. Whoops. Time to start thinking of priorities. Like who to vote for in 2015.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has indicated his preparedness to share the experiences Ghana has gained in the management of its oil and gas resources since its discovery in 2007, and measures taken to ensure the prudent and effective use of the proceeds from their sale, with Senegal. According to President Akufo-Addo, with the recent discovery of oil and gas in Senegal in commercial quantities, Ghana is well-equipped to share its experiences in the effective management of oil and gas revenues. His statement was in response to a request put forward by the President of Senegal, Macky Sall, at a meeting held at the Presidential Palace to discuss possible areas of co-operation between the two countries.

A Kansas utility company relies on 12 Cat® G20CM34 natural gas-fired reciprocating internal combustion engines (RICE) for 110 MW of flexible power that meets efficiency and emissions requirements. Mid-Kansas Electric Company (MKEC), a generation and transmission cooperative, has a power generation portfolio made up of coal, natural gas, wind resources and transmission line assets that include more than 1,000 miles of high-voltage lines. This diversified portfolio allows Mid-Kansas to provide reliable energy and transmission service at the lowest possible cost to 33 counties across central and western Kansas. Some in-depth research revealed that reciprocating internal combustion engines (RICE) could make the most of Mid-Kansas’ resources and provide flexible and cost-effective power generation. As a result, MKEC worked with Caterpillar to customize a power solution for its new facility, Rubart Station, which runs on 12 Cat G20CM34 natural gas RICE units and has a nominal 110 MW output capability. While Rubart Station has become the most efficient installation in the Mid-Kansas portfolio, it is also Caterpillar’s largest natural gas-powered facility in the world to date.

Lots of people use the turmeric herb in their cooking. The main signs of turmeric are its pepper- like smell, sharp taste, and golden color. Turmeric is known to stop swelling, kill bacteria and viruses, as well as many other things. It is also full of nutrients, like protein, dietary fiber, niacin, Vitamins C, E, and K, calcium, potassium, copper, iron, magnesium, and zinc. Because of this, turmeric is a great thing to use to cure health problems. Here are the top ten things turmeric can be used for: • Prevents Cancer Turmeric can block prostate cancer and even kill cancer cells. It can also stop tumor cells from growing, so it can guard the body from getting cancer in the first place. • Relieves Arthritis Because turmeric brings down swelling, it’s great to use for osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. It also kills germs that harm body cells. People with rheumatoid arthritis who eat turmeric all the time have gotten much rest from pain and joint swelling. • Controls Diabetes Turmeric can help cure diabetes, by keeping insulin at normal levels. It also helps with sugar control, and makes the medicine used for diabetes work. But if used with strong medicines, turmeric can cause low blood sugar, so make sure to ask your doctor before you take turmeric capsules. • Reduces Cholesterol Levels Using turmeric as a spice can bring down cholesterol levels. Because high cholesterol can cause other health problems, it is important to stay on top of it to stop heart disease. • Immunity Booster Turmeric helps keep the body’s immune system going. It also helps strengthen the immune system, because it kills bacteria, viruses, and fungi. This stops you from getting colds, coughs, and the flu. To help you feel better if you do get sick, mix one teaspoon of turmeric in a glass of warm milk and drink it once a day. • Heals Wounds Because turmeric naturally kills germs and bacteria, it can be used to clean wounds. If you have a cut or burn, sprinkle some turmeric powder on it to help it heal quicker. It can also help treat psoriasis- itchy, dead skin- and other skin conditions. • Weight Management Turmeric powder can help keep the body at a proper weight, by helping break down fat. Someone who wants to lose weight or treat obesity and sicknesses that come with it, can have one teaspoon of turmeric with every meal. • Prevents Alzheimer’s Disease Swelling of the brain is one of the main reasons for cognitive disorders, like Alzheimer’s disease. Turmeric can keep the brain healthy, by helping oxygen flow. This can also slow down or totally stop Alzheimer’s disease. • Improves Digestion Turmeric can help with digestion, by lessening bloating and gas. It can also help treat inflammatory bowel disease. But be careful, because if you suffer from a gallbladder disease you should not take turmeric, as that can make it worse. Also, if you have a digestive problem, it is best to eat raw turmeric, and not capsules. • Prevents Liver Disease Turmeric is a natural way to force poisons from the liver. The liver takes poison out of the blood, and turmeric helps make the enzymes that keep it working. It also helps strengthen, and better blood flow. All of this helps to keep the liver healthy. Because of all the ways turmeric can help your health, adding this herb to your diet is a great idea. If you like the video, give it a thumbs†up and share it with your friends!

Dimanche 28 février, près de 10.000 personnes ont manifesté à Barjac, dans le Gard, pour l’interdiction de toute exploration ou exploitation du gaz de schiste en France. Greenpeace, Attac, la Confédération paysanne mais également des élus locaux ont défilé sous la bannière « Non au gaz de schiste, ni ici, ni ailleurs, ni aujourd’hui, ni demain ». Cette manifestation fait écho à une décision de justice. Mi-janvier, un tribunal a en effet donné raison à Total en rétablissant son permis d’exploration délivré en 2010. Mais le mouvement s’inscrit également en opposition aux déclarations de Luc Chatel, président du Conseil national de "Les Républicains", le 14 février – je cite : « notre mouvement doit être le parti du principe d’innovation, le parti du gaz de schiste, le parti des OGM, le parti des biotechs » Mais c’est quoi le gaz de schiste ? Le gaz de schiste est une source d’énergie. C’est un gaz naturel présent dans certains sols. Contrairement aux gisements conventionnels de gaz qui prennent la forme de poches retenues dans le sous-sol, le gaz de schiste est emprisonné dans la roche elle-même qui est constituée de milliers de couches. L’huile de schiste est l’équivalent pour le pétrole. Pour exploiter ce gaz ou cette huile, il ne suffit donc pas de percer la roche pour atteindre une poche, mais il faut réaliser des forages horizontaux plus profonds et y injecter de l’eau et des additifs sous très haute pression afin de fracturer la roche. Le gaz est alors libéré et peut être collecté. On parle alors de fracturation hydraulique. Bien que la concentration en gaz pour un puits soit moins importante que pour du gaz conventionnel, les zones d’exploitation potentielles sont beaucoup plus étendues. En revanche, la fracturation hydraulique a un coût plus élevé. Selon l’OFCE, produire un baril d’huile de schiste coûte entre 40 et 60 dollars aux Etats-Unis, contre 5 à 10 dollars pour les gisements conventionnels d’Arabie Saoudite. En France, cette ressource représenterait potentiellement plusieurs dizaines d’années d’indépendance énergétique. Mais depuis 2011, la loi interdit l’utilisation de la fracturation hydraulique. En effet, cette technique est pointée du doigt à cause de ses effets sur l’environnement. Aux Etats-Unis, une étude rendue publique par l’Académie des sciences du pays a mis en évidence que la fracturation hydraulique peut entraîner une pollution des nappes phréatiques. De plus, les opposants craignent que cette exploitation ne remette en question la transition énergétique. Face à cette nouvelle mobilisation dans le sud de la France, Ségolène Royal, ministre de l’Ecologie, a déclaré que le futur code minier, qui règlemente l’exploitation des sous-sols en France, interdira tout nouvelle recherche de gaz de schiste. Pas forcément suffisant pour rassurer les opposants, alors que pour certains représentants politiques, le gaz de schiste représente un moyen de réduire les importations d’hydrocarbure de l’Hexagone tout en créant des emplois.
