Baby Noise Cancelling Headphones (Baby Earmuffs)

Introduction

According to Krisp.ai, the long story of how noise cancelling or if you prefer noise reduction headphones all started in Germany in 1933 when Paul Lueg, a doctor of philosophy and medicine, submitted a ground breaking patent application  about using phase-advancing waves to cancel sinusoidal tones in ducts and inverting polarity to cancel sounds around a loudspeaker. This went on to become what we today call active noise cancellation. In active noise cancellation, all that is needed is a secondary sound B to cancel out the un-needed sound A.

This system was also designed to reduce noise for the pilot in the cockpit area and help make the communication easier. Fogel was considered to be the inventor of active noise cancellation and he created one of the first noise cancelling headphones systems.

NOISE CANCELLING HEADPHONES: THE BASICS

Active noise control dates back to the 1930s, and noise cancelling headphones were part of the story for a while now. The first companies that started producing them were Bose and Sennheiser

Some of the noises that need cancellation may include.

  • Passive noise cancellation
  • Active noise cancellation
  • Adaptive noise cancellation

These particular (Baby Earmuffs) sound proof ear protector covers for babies are designed to-;

  • KEEP OUT NOISE: Effectively they keep out any noise at daytime, such as vacuum cleaner, home decoration, lawn mower or other noises, not only protects baby’s hearing, but also helps baby sleep better and longer.
  • ULTRA QUIET: Seamless design was applied to these baby noise cancelling headphones to completely cover baby’s ears with no gap, totally prevents the noise from coming in.
  • ZERO PRESSURE: Large internal space design prevents pressure on baby’s ears, with Skin-friendly and soft padded head band on top, all you expect is to see a beautiful smile on your baby’s face.
  • LIGHT, DURABLE: High-quality ABS material has been used to minimize the weight which makes these ear muffs highly portable and easy to carry, super sturdy and durable.

Advantages:

● 1 in 8 children have permanent hearing damage.
● Children are extra sensitive to sound and therefore suffer hearing damage more quickly.
● According to the World Health Organization, exposure to loud noise is one of the most common causes of hearing damage.
● Noise can overstrain young children leading to stress and sleeping problems.
● 95% of children sometimes suffer from an ear infection due to loud noise exposure.

Disadvantages;

There are no known disadvantages of using protective ear gear for babies, on the contrally, babies and kids need to be armed with noisecancelling headphones. Infants and young children have particularly delicate eardrums that can easily be damaged by repeated exposure to loud sounds (anything louder than 70 decibels), which can lead to hearing problems.

EZREACHER

We have already mentioned something about reacher grabbers and the special role they play in bettering the lives of people with disability, are elderly or battling with arthritis or Parkinson’s disease. The unger grabber tool has been proved to be the best among all the other pick up tools for elderly. In this article though, we look at the Ez reacher, another great grabbing tool.

Grabber Tools for Disabled, Arthritis and Parkinson’s Patients

Grabbers for Handicapped

People with Arthritis, stroke and Parkinson’s disease will find it hard to pick stuff either when they are lying on the ground or when they are way high above them. Grocery shopping for example is extremely hard for people with arthritis because their muscles might just decide to stiffen up when they are picking vegetables up the shelves of the grocery store. For one bending might be a really painful thing and even impossible especially for the case of those with physical handicap. Parkinson’s patients also have dyskinesia and dystonia which causes muscle stiffness. They are therefore not able to move around or pick things in far off places.

Thanks to technology though, they are still able to move around and do things by using reacher grabbers for handicapped that are uniquely designed to give them extra hand extension as well as ability to hold up as much weight as possible. There are even those tools that are magnetically fitted so that they can do special tasks such as picking car keys, belts, earrings or anything else that is metallic and can be attracted by the magnet fitted in the tool.

What to look out for when buying your grabbing tool

  1. Length—you want something that offers maximum extension say from 32” and above

2. Durability—you are looking for a tool that is highly durable and will last for a long time therefore giving you value for your money.

3. Sturdiness—the tool needs to be strong and sturdy enough so that you do not have to worry about it breaking easily or catching rust that could affect its effectiveness.

4. Weight limit—you want a tool that will be able to pick high loads of weight without giving in or breaking apart

5. Foldability and flexibility—look out for a tool that can easily be folded so as to save on storage space

6. Picking even the smallest of things—you want a tool that will pick even the least of things be it a dime or even a needle

7. Adaptability—you are looking for a reacher grabber that will be adaptable even on a wheelchair

8. Ergonomic—when you buy tools for people with arthritis and Parkinson’s disease, you are looking out for tools that are ergonomic and comfy to use by them without creating any unneeded muscle stiffening.

 

Is the Use of Family Cloths for Poop Hygienic

For sometimes now, I have been researching on the best ways to wipe your butt after visiting the toilet. I have seen people who use wet wipes, bidets and others use family cloths. And one thing that I have come to conclude is that use of toilet paper is never the best thing that you could be doing. Toilet paper for one could lead to you getting urinary tract infections (UTI) if you do not clean your butt well and the fecal material gets into contact with your urethra. Women are the worst hit when it comes to contacting UTIs especially if they use low quality tissue paper or wipe from back to front as opposed to the recommended front to back wiping design for women.

Wet wipes?

The use of wet wipes has also been decried to cause blockages in the sewerage system unless one is to use truly flushable wipes. And with today’s world of bad immitations and counterfeits, you are never assured of the right thing. So you might buy some adult wet wipes labeled as flushable but it ends up clogging your septic system. So there is always the need to cross-check such statements by reading reviews especially from ecommerce stores where you are assured of getting nothing but honest reviews from real customers who have bought the product and want to advise other would be customers to buy the product or to desist buying.

Use of Bidets?

Muslims have been using bidets and they always praise them for their efficacy as well as how good they do the job. And honestly speaking, they do a great job. Everytime I use a bidet, I feel refreshed and well sanitized. Bidets will leave no fecal material behind and are therefore your best bet when you want to wipe yourself clean. They are also eco-friendly since no trees will be cut down to make them. Less water is also used and no chlorine needs to be used up.

Family cloths?

And then comes the family cloths. Family cloths are the normal type of clothing material but now used to wipe your butt. All one needs to do is wet them with some warm water and then go ahead to wipe their butts.

This way, you will not be wasting any money and it is therefore the most cost-friendly way to wipe your butt. The downside though is that it could cause the spread of germs. The proponents of family cloths say that you need to make sure that you are using hot water with some anti-microbial agents so as to kill any germs that might be on the family cloths before they can be used again.

Why I would never recommend cialis to anybody

There is this male enhancement pill that works fast. It is called cialis.

But the truth is that nobody should ever take it. Why?

Well cialis makes you reliant on it anytime you want a boner.

It has also been found to increase your heart rate.

Other demerits of cialis include:

  1. Eye problems after use
  2. You could injure your penis
  3. Headaches
  4. Stomach upsets
  5. Diarrhea
  6. Nausea
  7. Heart attack
  8. Stroke

Rather than have all those kinds of complications, I would advise anybody thinking about boner pills to think of other safer methods such as male extra, alpha secret among others that have been proven to increase one’s testosterone levels.

 

Foods that every weight loser should take

When you are losing weight, you need to make sure that you are eating healthy. If you eat junk, then the next thing will be that you will never see any changes in your weight. You will always find yourself getting bigger and bigger.

Why? Because the weight you are losing is less than what you are gaining. For weight loss to be effective, you need to make sure that the number of calories burnt is more than what is consumed. If that is not the case, then we have a disaster in the waiting.

In this article, I will talk about weight loss foods that you should strive to take such as fruits and proteins

Foods to avoid

You should avoid meals with high carb diet since high carb is quickly converted to glycogen and stored in the adipose tissue in form of fat. That is a disaster.

At the same time, avoid fats that have cholesterol. Other than getting your really fat, cholesterol also gets your blood vessels blocked so that your heart has to work overtime to pass blood. This could lead to heart attacks, blood clots as well as hardened blood vessels. Again that is no good.

Foods you should take instead

  • Fish
  • Chicken
  • Vegetables
  • Water
  • Whole grain cereals
  • Beef
  • Pork
  • Almond seeds since they have lots of zinc
  • Chia seeds
  • Pumpkins
  • Ground nuts
  • Vegetable oils

You should increase your uptake of proteins. Why? For one proteins are good for muscle growth. They are also awesome when it comes to burning fat because to break up a protein food into the individual amino acids take up so much energy.

You should take up caffeine, green tea and pepper. Research has shown that these foods are great for thermogenesis. Thermogenesis is where fats are burnt inside the body to produce heat. During thermogenesis, energy is expended which is good for your fat burn.

Take lots of water too.  Or smoothies if you are a smoothie person. But do not take alcohol since alcohol gets fats quickly absorbed into the body in their direct form without digestion.

Thermogenic fat burners such as phenq would also be great for your fat burn.

Weight limit-most bassinets do come with weight restrictions. You should make sure that the one you intent to buy can support your baby’s weight.

Materials used to make the mattress-always make sure that the materials are non-toxic since some may be made from harmful materials which will not good for your baby’s health.

 

Availability of extra features-some bassinets can vibrate or play music which may be soothing for your baby when upset or help him fall asleep more easily.

A rocking bassinet-this comes in handy if your baby is colicky as this will help in soothing and giving him peace. Make sure they always have a lock to prevent it from rolling whenever it rocks.

-Make sure to lock the bassinet always when your baby is sleeping in it to prevent it from rolling.

Zinc Rich Foods for Health

Zinc is a trace element since very little quantities are required for the body. High dosage of the supplement ain’t good. Deficiency though is also not good according to an article on WebMd.

Zinc has been said to be a great source of testosterone as well as bone growth and reinforcement. Athletes are always asked to take generous supply of zinc so as to grow their bones as well as improve their practice while on the field.

Doctors say that zinc has been attributed to hormonal growth especially for men who need testosterone for muscular growth as well as libido and potence.  Zinc does increase testosterone by limiting the action of conversion from testosterone to estrogen.

Sources of zinc:

The main sources of zinc are

  • oyster
  • Red meat
  • Chicken
  • Fish
  • almond seeds
  • chia seed
  • pumpkin seeds
