Physiological problems associated with high blood glucose level.

For a normal individual, getting rid of problems on their own happens without any need for external medication. Common cold, as well as simple allergies that happen on a daily basis have been effectively tackled by the immune system without any kind of problems. Yet, you find that with a very high blood glucose level, the chances of the body being able to tackle such kind of simple problems become even harder. The immune system is not capable enough in order to tackle these issues anymore, and people find themselves susceptible to even the smallest of diseases which would otherwise not be a problem in their normal healthy state. So, what are some of the problems associated with the high blood glucose level – click here to see the normal blood sugar levels for non diabetic and diabetic people.

  • Dental issues – The human body comes with a lot of bacteria, and most of it is located in the dental region. It is effective enough in order to break down the food and ensure that there is no problem in the digestive tract of the body. Yet, when there is the presence of excessive glucose level, the bacteria as well as the germs become extremely active. It would also end up taking a toll on the dental hygiene of the person, meaning that they would not be able to cure the problems in the tooth at the earliest possible opportunity. Eventually, the person might have to get rid of the entire teeth in order to stem the problem.
  • Cardiovascular problems – It is a well-documented fact that with the increase of blood sugar levels in an individual, there is a documented rise in the obesity levels. As soon as the person becomes more obese, they are more susceptible to cardiovascular diseases. Having high blood sugar level also ensures that the sugar will be able to spread to the different parts of the body, and thereby making the entire body toxic.

With such physiological problems, it would be a better idea for people to steer clear of all the junk food that normally accompanies the growing problems of blood glucose level in any person seeking out cheap food.

The Story Of How The World’s Largest Flower Was Discovered

Several researchers from Europe were exploring the dense rainforests of the Indonesian islands in the late 18th Century. This region was absolutely unexplored and several wonderful discoveries were being made every week. It was an exciting time for Geographers and Biologists alike, as several new locations, previously inaccessible and unexplored was now available to them thanks to Imperialism and the emergence of Global trade. One such French Botanist called Louis Auguste Deschamps was exploring in the tropical rainforests of Sumatra island in 1797 when he chanced upon a huge flower. It was almost 4 feet in diameter and gave off a stink like that of rotting meat. He made several notes and even managed to cut off pieces of the flower to show as samples. He had a notion that it could be the largest flower in the World.

Soon after the discovery, he set sail, back to France where he hoped to publish about the flower and proclaim its discovery. However, the ship he was traveling in was captured by a British ship while at sea, as Britain and France were at war with each other at that time. All notes and samples were seized from Deschamps even though he proclaimed that they had no significance to the war. Without the notes or the samples, he could neither publish, nor proclaim his discovery.

In 1818, two British explorers Joseph Arnold and Sir Stamford Raffles discovered the flower after hearing tales from their servants in Sumatra. They took a full sample of the flower, preserved it and sent it by ship back to the British Museum along with notes and a pencil sketch of the live flower to be published and named.

The samples reached Britain and a draft was ordered to be prepared so that a good proper description of the flower could be added to the discovery publication. However, there was also word that the French were also preparing a draft and were racing to claim the discovery, even without Deschamps ‘ samples and notes. This made the British to make haste and they finally finished and published about the flower in 1821. It was named Rafflesia arnoldii in honor of the two explorers who discovered the flower. Since the flower gave a smell of rotting flesh, it was also commonly described as a corpse flower. The smell is actually meant to attract insects who will then help pollinate the flower and help it reproduce.

How To Choose The Best Objective Lens For Your Hunting Rifle?

There are several aspects to shooting over long distances with accuracy. The invention of rifle scopes has tremendously improved our shooting accuracy over long ranges. However, it has also thrown up a whole lot of new variables that all need to be perfectly set in order to hit the bullseye. Thus, to get all the settings right, we first need to understand how the scopes work and what difference its different parts can make to the shooting accuracy. One of the most important parts of the scope is the objective lens. This refers to the lens that faces the target. It is the lens through which the light rays enter the scope and form the image of the target for us to see. Let us now take a look at how to choose the rifle scope with the right objective lens diameter for your hunting needs.

32 mm Diameter Lens:

The 32 mm Diameter objective lens is the smallest possible one that we can mount on modern rifles. Old rifles can take in 30 mm lenses but they are out of fashion these days. The 32 mm lens allows very little light to pass through and hence can work only in fully lit conditions such as during bright sunny days. However, since it is small, the scope weight very less and so can go well with lightweight rifles. The scope also rests close to the barrel, which makes it very stable and easy to mount on your shoulder for shooting.

40 – 44 mm Diameter Lens:

This is the gold standard for most modern rifles. These scopes let in a good amount of light to enter and thus allow for shooting in considerably low light such as during dark cloudy days as well. The image is clearer and the scope is sufficiently close to the barrel so as to not affect the stability of the rifle too much. The rifle starts to get heavier though but it can still be mounted comfortably on our shoulders when shooting.

50 – 75 mm Diameter Lens:

These scopes are huge and are only used when shooting over extremely long distances of around a mile or more. They are super heavy and you will definitely need a mount to place the rifle as it cannot be mounted on your shoulder when shooting. However, the large lens allows for maximum amount of light to enter the scope and thus you can use it to shoot in extremely low light conditions as well.

5 Poses That Make A Wedding Photo Album Look Glorious

The wedding is possibly the most special moment in a couple’s lives. As a Wedding Photographer, it is your duty to capture the best moments of the day and make them last a lifetime. In addition to capturing the happenings in the ceremony, it is always a great idea to request the couple to set aside some time to pose for pictures after the ceremony. This will ensure that you have the time to work your magic and make their day even more special. Let’s take a look at 5 poses that you could capture and make the Wedding Photo album look glorious.

Sleeping on the Grass:

Ask the bride and groom to lie down in the grass facing opposite directions. Then make the bride put her hands gently on the groom’s face and ask them to close their eyes while you capture the shot from above. This makes for an excellent playful yet romantic pose that you can be sure the couple will love.

Wedding Dance:

This need not be captured during the actual wedding dance. The actual wedding dance is sure to be crowded and it would be awkward and intruding if you go about clicking pictures pushing people about. Hence, for the perfect Wedding Dance shot, take the couple alone out onto the street. Use the lights of an approaching car or simply place your focus light behind them and use it to take a stunning picture like the one below.

There are some great wedding dance photos in the Pasadena City Hall wedding by Thien Dinh at, you can see the full gallery on his site.

A Private Moment:

This pose can be taken indoors. Have the couple sit relaxed on the floor at a corner of a room. Make them smile and gaze into each other, just as they would before a kiss and capture the moment from above by making use of stairs or a portable ladder. It should turn out something like this.

The Shadow Kiss:

This shot is a classic that is often used in the movies. That’s what makes it so interesting and surreal. Take the couple to a calm and secluded location and place your focus light behind them. Then, have a white umbrella lean on their faces while they kiss. The light will create a beautiful shadow on the umbrella for you to capture.

Her Protector:

This shot is perfect if you have a light drizzle or rain during the photo shoot. Have the groom take out his coat and shield the bride with it while they kiss out in the open.
