WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU EAT 3 WHOLE EGGS EVERY DAY?

YOU’LL BE SURPRISED WHAT IT DOES TO YOUR BODYif_you_eat_3_whole_eggs_every_day_you8217ll_be_surprised_what_it_does_to_your_body__kiwli_com
If you eat foods with high concentration of cholesterol, the liver will adapt the production. By consuming eggs you will not increase your cholesterol levels, but only substitute one cholesterol with another.

This is why you should consume eggs regularly:
Nutrients
Eggs contain high levels of vitamins A, B6 and E, thiamin, riboflavin, folate, iron, phosphorus, selenium, magnesium and many other important nutrients. The foods that include all of these minerals and vitamins are very rare.


Cholesterol
Eggs include good cholesterol (HDL). This cholesterol is not dangerous for your health, instead, it is very beneficial since it assists the body to generate vitamin D and hormones like testosterone, estrogen and cortisol.
The good cholesterol doesn’t build up on the walls of blood vessels like the bad cholesterol does. Instead, the good cholesterol cleans them and disables appearance of diseases like atherosclerosis. It doesn’t raise the possibility of cardiovascular diseases and reduces the concentration of bad cholesterol. You should avoid consummation of sugar and have a healthy diet and lifestyle in order to keep your cholesterol levels balanced.

Eggs are very rich source of choline which is important nutrient that allows proper brain development and improves the memory. It is a precursor to a neurotransmitter known as acetylcholine, and it is vital for the pregnant women because it reduces the risk of development of abnormalities in the fetuses. 90% of the American population lacks of choline, which is the reason why they are prone to muscle damage and non-alcoholic liver fatty disease.
Keeps your vision sharp
Lutein and zeaxanthin are potent carotenoids that improve the vision. They lower the possibility of age-related macular degeneration and keep your eyes safe from sunlight harm while lowering the possibility of cataract by 50%.
Feed your muscles
2 eggs contain the same levels of protein like 1 portion of meat, but without consuming the fat and acidity of the meat. In many diets you will see an instruction of eating only the white of the egg, but you should know that the half of the protein concentration in the eggs is located in the yolk.
Feed your bones
Eggs also contain high amount of vitamin D and calcium which are necessary for the adequate bone development and firmness. Vitamin D allows better absorption of calcium in the body, while calcium is necessary for adequate blood clotting, nerve signals and muscle contractions.
Promote weight loss
Since the eggs are rich in many nutrients, they will make you feel satiated. They are low in calories and thus they are very helpful when it comes to losing weight. The Journal of the American College of Nutrition and The International Journal of Obesity did a studies that confirmed the fact that consuming eggs for breakfast lowers the amount of food you will consume during the day. This will result with weight loss and decreased body fat.
Conclusion:
 The health organizations aren’t right when saying that the eggs aren’t healthy because the eggs will make you much healthier. Consummation of 2-3 eggs daily is perfectly healthy for your body.

Frida Kahlo Infiltrates the Snapchat Generation with a New Set of Emoji




Of the 143 paintings that Frida Kahlo produced in her lifetime, 55 are self-portraits. They show the radical Mexican artist experiencing a vertiginous rollercoaster of emotions: anguish, resilience, heartache, self-doubt, and passion. They’re also the inspiration behind a new set of 160 emoji—dubbed FridaMoji—that hit the App Store this month.
“Frida was just perfect for the project,” says Sam Cantor, the Los Angeles-based gallerist and graphic designer behind FridaMoji. “She conveyed her emotions so honestly and openly in her work. What better artist to translate into emoji, which we use to express emotion today?”
Cantor designed his first Kahlo-inspired emoji last summer. The Instagram account for Cantor Fine Art, the gallery he runs with his father, was attracting a growing number of followers, and Cantor wanted to engage them. His strategy: to canvas his audience with a simple question. “If I were to make emoji of artists, who would you want to see?”
“I was shocked how quickly answers streamed in,” says Cantor. Requests for Andy WarholJean-Michel BasquiatYayoi Kusama, and van Goghglutted his inbox. So he got to work, using the graphic design and art direction chops he’d sharpened during his years working for powerhouse advertising agency Wieden+Kennedy. He released them one at a time on Cantor Fine Art’s feed. And while all of his creations whipped up excitement, it was Cantor’s Frida Kahlo emoji that “was by far and away the most successful,” he remembers.

It tweaked the classic “woman” emoji by adding a crown of flowers, made from the “hibiscus” and “cherry blossom” icons, the “monkey” emoji, and a unibrow. It was unmistakably Kahlo, and likes streamed in. So did emails from top-tier museums, artist foundations, and Japanese and Korean emoji companies asking to partner with Cantor on the project—and expand it.
One conversation, with the Frida Kahlo Corporation (the entity which “owns the rights to the brand name Frida Kahlo World Wide,” according to its website), began to develop more quickly than the rest. In talking with Cantor, Beatriz Alvarado of the Frida Kahlo Corporation realized they shared the same vision for Kahlo’s legacy: “We both wanted to channel her voice into everyday life—and, in particular, to connect millennials and centennials to her work,” she explains. “Working with new technologies, like emoji, felt like a powerful way to do that.”
It was an ambitious goal, and not without challenges. First and foremost, Cantor and Alvarado faced a design problem: How do you communicate the complexity of such a multifaceted life and body of work into the regimented, graphic language of emoji? Or, as Cantor put it, “How do we express that Frida is more than just a unibrow and a flower crown?” First, Alvarado suggested iconic paintings that could be used as inspiration. Then Cantor began to pour the majority of his time into studying the intricacies of Kahlo’s aesthetic and artistic animus.
His research culminated in a trip to Mexico City, where he spent two weeks studying Kahlo’s paintings in person. The first canvas Cantor saw was Las Dos Fridas (1939), Kahlo’s famed double portrait that she painted after her divorce from Diego Rivera, the behemoth Mexican muralist with whom she had a tumultuous relationship. “The intensity of the emotions on their faces, and how many ways they could be read or stretched to tell different stories, really struck me,” Cantor says. “That was a turning point.”


Cantor became obsessed with Kahlo’s work, as he’ll readily admit: “I now count myself among the Frida maniacs,” he laughs. And soon, he’d designed 400 emoji based on Frida’s paintings, her life, and scholarship written about her. Of those initial designs, 160 made Alvarado’s cut. Some were discarded for aesthetic reasons, others because of issues surrounding artists’ estates. Cantor was most disappointed to see the emoji that combined imagery of Kahlo and Rivera go. But coordinating rights with Rivera’s estate would have prolonged the process.
The next step was distribution. The early emojis Cantor designed were individual images that weren’t compatible with iMessage. He needed to create an app, and a subsidiary of the Korean messaging service Kakao Talk offered to help. But, according to Cantor, in the process of strategizing around distribution, Kakao Talk insisted that Korea have an exclusive on the Kahlo emoji. “Our main goal was to make Frida’s work accessible to as many people as possible,” says Cantor. “So we had to pull away.” So, with the help of a developer, he began building the app from scratch.
This month, FridaMoji became available through Apple’s App Store. Now, Kahlo lovers and fans of expressive emoji everywhere can download the app and start sending icons inspired by Kahlo’s many emotions. One shows an anguished Kahlo, surrounded by a tangle of thorns, based on Self-Portrait with Thorn Necklace and Hummingbird (1940). Another shows Kahlo dressed as a man with freshly cropped hair, based on Self-Portrait with Cropped Hair (1940). And another shows her happily attached to a monkey, based on Self-Portrait with Monkeys (1943).

While anticipation has bolstered the FridaMoji release, there have been some dissenters, too. “Some people think that Frida wouldn’t be happy with this approach,” Alvarado explains. “But Frida’s own spirit of reinvention is what we tried to channel through the emoji. We want to express that Frida and her work represent change, free will, self-expression, and individuality, and I can’t imagine that she would have objected to that.”
There is a page in Frida Kahlo’s diary that, in this writer’s opinion, supports Alvarado’s hypothesis. On it, Kahlo drew pared-down likenesses of her own face, displaying different emotions. Each is encircled by rings resembling bubbles, so that they suggest hand-drawn cousins of contemporary emoji. Writer Carlos Fuentes, in his commentary on Kahlo’s published diaries, wrote of the page: “Through the act of painting Kahlo established herself as an artist, and her many self-portraits are manifestations of her need to demonstrate the various aspects of herself.”
Cantor and the Frida Kahlo Corporation’s FridaMoji aims to engage a new generation with this integral aspect of Kahlo’s work—and, hopefully, to beckon them toward learning about her life, paintings, and legacy in the process.

New Mobility Contributor Removed from American Airlines Flight




On March 27, 2017, Mark E. Smith, a regular contributor to New Mobility and power chair user with cerebral palsy, was removed with no explanation from his Los Angeles to Philadelphia flight by American Airlines staff.
To say Smith is a frequent flyer is an understatement. Part of his job as general manager of public relations for Quantum Rehab includes travel to trade shows, and over the years he has flown hundreds of times both nationally and internationally.
The incident began after Smith had transferred to his row 27 seat, and the doors were about to close for an 11:30 a.m. on time departure. As he described in his blog, “Powerchair Diaries,” Smith saw “a large group of American Airlines’ flight attendants, gate agents and ground crew — a sea of varying uniforms and two-way chatter — coming up the aisle.” Without speaking to Smith, they asked the two women sitting next to him to move from their seats, explaining they were removing Smith from the plane.
He was strapped into an aisle chair and wheeled up out of the plane, past most of the passengers, who watched in silence. “No one — flight attendants, ground crew — gave me a direct answer as to why I was being removed,” says Smith. “There was chatter among the group, but they were focused on simply saying ‘they had to remove me from the flight’ someone in the group mentioned ‘getting me off of the manifest’ I’m not sure what that meant.” In his blog, Smith says that the people from American Airlines said he was being removed because of captains’ orders.
Flight 121 departed without Smith, and he waited in the jet way, still strapped in the aisle chair for a half hour before his power chair finally arrived, with the leg rests incorrectly installed. “I had to go into a wheelchair stall for my own privacy to get my leg rests, arm rests, and positioning straps straightened out,” says Smith.
He was re-booked on the next AA flight to Philadelphia, which departed at 3 p.m.. “My flight home was flawless,” he says.
This story has gone viral on social media, which has prompted American Airlines to reach out to Smith and open an investigation. They issued a formal statement, which was sent to several news organizations via email:
“We apologize to Mr. Smith for his recent experience and have reached out to him to gather additional information. American does not tolerate discrimination of any kind and we are committed to providing a positive travel experience for all of our customers.”
“I still have not been given a reason why I was removed,” says Smith. “As one with a life-long disability and frequent flyer this was a confusing, disturbing incident. I certainly don’t want anyone else to experience the indignities I experienced that day.”

New rules go into effect for Social Security disability claims





WASHINGTON D.C. -- It may soon be harder to file a disability claim with the Social Security Administration.
New regulations, which went into effect on Monday, are eliminating the so-called “treating-physician rule.”
Until now, the rule required benefits adjudicators to give significant weight to a physician’s report supporting an applicant’s claim for benefits.
Critics say this will likely make it harder for people to prove they're entitled to disability payments.
In their summary on the Federal Register, the Social Security Administration said the new rules are designed to “reflect modern healthcare delivery.”
Experts say the rule’s effect on benefits paid is unclear.
Charles Hankey, a disability attorney, says if the new rule signals the beginning of a trend, it could be concerning.
“It’s worrisome the way that trends are going, but a truly disabled person is going to be declared disabled if the case is properly put together and the facts are laid out and available,” he said.
The new rules will also no longer give added weight to disability determinations by other agencies such as the Department of Veteran’s Affairs
According to the Social Security Administration, the amount of people receiving benefits has declined for the first time in nearly 30 years. This as the percentage of claim approvals has also gone down. Currently about 8.8 million people receive benefits, the lowest amount in five years.
Charles Hankey says the new regulations will likely affect some benefit approvals, though to what extent is unclear.
“I doubt this one rule is going to prevent people from receiving their justly due benefits but, we’re going to have to see and it is worrisome,” he said.
