Yoga is divided into several branches, ranging from that which teaches the control
of the body, to that which teaches the attainment of the highest spiritual
development. In the work we will not go into the higher phases of the subject,
except when the "Science of Breath" touches upon the same. The "Science of
Breath" touches Yoga at many points, and although chiefly concerned with the
development and control of the physical, has also its psychic side, and even enters
the field of spiritual development....
question which every author ought to ask of himself before he sends forth his work, and one which must
occur to every thoughtful reader, is the inquiry, Cui bono?--what justification has one for treating the subject
at all, and why in the particular way which he has chosen? To the pertinency of this question to the present
treatise the author has been deeply sensible, and therefore cannot forbear a few prefatory words of explanation
of his object and method.
(BQ) Ebook Life science: Systems of the Human Body presents about how is your body’s circulatory system like a car’s fuel system? What are the sacs with thin walls that are at the end of the bronchioles called? If you hold your breath, what gas builds up in your blood?.
If marketing folks want to breathe new life into an existing technology, the
method du jour is to tack “digital” onto the name. Today we have digital
cable, digital cell phones, digital fuel injection, and now, digital video. But
unlike some other technologies that have recently earned the digital prefix,
digital video isn’t just a minor improvement over the old way of doing things.
Digital video is a revolution that is changing the way we think about and use
It would seem that an introduction to oxygen is unnecessary, for we deal with it and
depend upon it every moment of our lives. Oxygen is to us the essential stuff of the
air we breathe. We are aerobic animals who obtain energy by oxidizing foodstuffs.
As such, we are wholly dependent on oxygen for life – go without it for a couple of
minutes and we panic and may even suffer irreversible brain damage. In a few more
minutes, we perish. Animal metabolism depends upon oxygen for almost all of its
energy-generating processes. Yet this was not always so. Early in the history of the
"There come from time to time, eras of more favorable conditions, in which the thoughts of men draw nearer
together than is their wont, and the many interests of the intellectual world combine in one complete type of
general culture. The fifteenth century ... is one of these happier eras; and what is sometimes said of the age of
Pericles is true of that of Lorenzo--it is an age productive of personalities, many-sided, centralized, complete.
Bronchiolitis. Bronchiolitis occurs predominantly in the first
year of life and with decreasing frequency in the second and
third years. The clinical features are rapid breathing and lower
chest wall indrawing, fever in one-third of cases, and wheezing
(Cherian and others 1990). Inflammatory obstruction of the
small airways, which leads to hyperinflation of the lungs, and
collapse of segments of the lung occur. Because the signs and
symptoms are also characteristic of pneumonia, health workers
may find differentiating between bronchiolitis and pneumonia
Nigeria’s Leaders Prioritize Prevention
The First Lady of Cross River State, Mrs. Obioma
Liyel-Imoke, is a public health crusader who is
profoundly dedicated to reducing child pneumonia
deaths in Nigeria — the country with the
highest child pneumonia burden in Africa. She
created the Breath of Life health initiative that
works within communities to promote pneumonia
prevention. On World Pneumonia Day,
Breath of Life, the First Lady and other dignitaries
led an energetic advocacy walk to educate
parents about child pneumonia in the local
government area (LGA) of Bekwarra.

the workplace or even from ourselves. They are accompanied by headaches, insomnia…The sign
of depression –“stress” in modern life, appears when work and life tense us up and make us
tired. For the positions that are constantly put under pressure such as the manager, securities

Acute-care clinicians are well aware of the alphabetical
“ABC” (airway, breathing, circulation)
directive of resuscitation. This term has been
widely disseminated through programs such as
Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) and Advanced
Cardiac Life Support (ACLS). In fact,
both courses have contributed significantly to
improving awareness of resuscitation priorities
required in managing patients rendered critically
ill from trauma or cardiac events.
To understand oxidative stress, we review mitochondria together.
Mitochondria consume over 80 percent of the oxygen we breathe and make over 90 percent of the energy our cells need to function. They use the oxygen in the air we breathe to release energy from food. This process transforms food calories into chemical energy, water, and carbon dioxide. The released chemical energy is then stored in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP is the universal currency of energy used by all life on earth.
Shalom is one of the most beautiful words in existence. It literally
means “nothing missing, nothing broken.”1 It also means to be completely
whole in every way. Shalom is perfect peace.2
Our Lord Jesus is the Prince of Shalom. (Isa. 9:6.) His greatest
desire for you is that you live in health, prosperity, joy, and absolute
fulfillment in every area of your life. If even a small part of your life is
lacking any part of these, He feels it. You must realize that your Lord
loves you with a perfect love. He cherishes every breath you take.
We should all be prospectors of happiness. There are those who discover it in the solitudes of the mountains where freedom is breathed in the air that touches the lofty
.peaks. Others find it in the depths of the forest in the songs of the birds, of the brook, of the trees. Most of us must find it in the daily walks of life where the seeking is ofttimes difficult. Nevertheless, there it is in the manufactured glory of the city, in the voices of children, and in the hearts and faces of men. Happiness becomes a habit with some;...
Another salient emotion in moving experiences is the feeling of inspi-
ration. The word “inspired” means, in its etymological sense, to be filled
with breath, spirit, and life. Thus, the emotion of learning at its most
powerful is the feeling of increased vitality as we realize our growing
capacity to perceive and act. This particular quality of experience is
addressed indirectly, at best, in mainstream psychological traditions. For
example, the motivation construct of goals...
In all of recorded history, humanity has never been engaged in a battle as
signifi cant as the one we face today. Never has our future been threatened
as severely as it is now. Th e enemy is not a terrorist organization or a rogue
nation seeking global domination; it is the environment we have created
—the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the food we consume. We
have taken the gifts of life presented to us and poisoned them.
This morning I awoke, and behold the Norman was lying alongside a wharf at Capetown. I had expected it,
and yet it was a shock. In this breathless age ten days out of sight of land is enough to make you a merman: I
looked with pleased curiosity at the grass and the horses.
After the surprise of being ashore again, the first thing to notice was the air. It was as clear--but there is
nothing else in existence clear enough with which to compare it. You felt that all your life hitherto you had
been breathing mud and looking out on the world through...
"Nothing ever happens to me!" Larry Manahan grumbled under his breath, sitting behind his desk at the advertising agency which employed his services in return for the consideration of fifty a week. "All the adventure I know is what I see in the movies, or read about in magazines. What wouldn't I give for a slice of real life!" Unconsciously, he tensed the muscles of his six feet of lean, hard body. His crisp, flame-colored hair seemed to bristle; his blue eyes blazed. He clenched a brown hammer of a fist. Larry felt himself an energetic, red-blooded square peg, badly...
