There was a hard knock at her front door, not a regular knock but almost barging but then she didn’t feel right and did not answer the door as she was all alone. After several such knocks, they finally left. She glanced through the glass of the door and there was a man.
After about half-an-hour, she walked outside to look for what it was and found something really strange at her door. There was a rubber band around the knob of the door to hold the door open.
One day when Kim Fleming was all alone at her home…
When she heard the knock at her door, she felt something was wrong. The sound of the knock was not normal. In fact they were more of a banging than just knocking. The knocks continued for some time. She didn’t yield to the same. She decided she will not open the door.
After sometime, the sound of the knocks waned away. She looked out carefully through the stained. She saw a man standing outside
Approximately thirty minutes later, she walked out of her house to understand what exactly happened. She found something strange on her door. An elastic band was hanging around the knob which was used to pull the door open.
This is what happened to Kim Fleming one day all of a sudden when she was at her house, all alone.
Yes. This is the newest of the many burglary techniques.
All that the burglars need in this technique is a single good quality rubber band. It works like this. The moment you operate the hinge, the knob gets unhinged and the thieves barge in attacking you.
And all they need is an elastic rubber band!
Ensure you never open the door, particularly when you stay alone at home

So Cesia decided Marcus could help her around the Café after all! Source

At the beginning of his employment, Cesia had made it clear that she could not pay him any money. But she could offer him food. To this, Marcus had eagerly agreed, as he would do anything for food at that point. He was that hungry.

Electronic cigarettes are actually the new rage these days, as the grim fates of chain smokers make traditional drags actually increasingly very unpopular. But as researchers continue to look into whether the electronic cigarette presents the same potential risks as its predecessor, it would now seem there is another horrifying hazard e-cigs pose that cigarettes never actually did: explosions.
A teen in Alberta, Canada had actually suffered second degree burns and even broken teeth just after his e-cigarette spontaneously exploded that was just inches from his mouth while he was using it in his own car.
The victim, by the name of Ty Greer, 16, was using the device in a car when the e-cigarette actually exploded.
“It lit my kid’s face on fire, busted two teeth out,” Perry Greer, Ty’s father, said to the Canadian Press. “It burned the back of his throat, burned his tongue very badly. If he wasn’t wearing glasses, he possibly could have lost his eyes. … He wanted to die. That is how much pain he was in.”
Greer said the family had then raced Ty to the hospital. He remembers hugging his son as he himself squirmed in great agony waiting for a dose of morphine to kick in.
The defective vape was a Wotofo Phantom, which is basically produced in China. Online reviews of the product on the marketplace Eciggity were mostly positive with no indication of such dangerous defects that could have been really fatal.
In a statement to Mic by the Smoke-Free Alternatives Trade Association, the industry has shot back at the implication that e-cigarettes are actually dangerous.
“Electronic cigarettes and vapor products are electronic devices and do not combust. They should be thought the same as other rechargeable electrical equipment such as laptops and cell phones, in terms of being battery powered,” the statement read. “We cannot speak to user error or on behalf of a manufacturer for their device. If there is truly an issue with a specific device, similar to a laptop or cell phone manufacturer, inquiries should be directed toward the individual company.”
Yet Ty Greer is not the first to fall victim to such a dangerous life threatening disaster. In November, a Colorado Springs man suffered a broken neck when an e-cigarette just exploded in his face. And earlier this month, an Orange County, California, teen too suffered burns after an e-cigarette exploded in his pocket. Just think!
Ty’s brother Zane said the incident has brought him and his brother really closer.
“The whole situation has given me a new perspective on how I feel about my brother,” said Zane. “I was so close to losing him.”
Perry described Ty as a very talented hockey player who has never smoked tobacco before. He said his son had actually purchased the e-cigarette from a store in north Lethbridge. The owner of the store declined to comment that,
“I have talked with the owner of the store,” said Perry. “He’s very remorseful. He cried the whole time I talked to him.”
Ty now faces a series of expensive dental surgeries as he prepares for a long recovery.
In October 2014, the Federal Emergency Management Agency officially acknowledged the phenomenon, and then published a study investigating the entire matter.
“Media reports of 25 separate incidents in the U.S. dating from 2009 to the present were found during an internet search,” FEMA wrote in the report, which indicated that the explosions were often linked to the device’s lithium battery overheating that is pretty much dangerous. “The event occurs suddenly and is accompanied by a loud noise, a flash of light, smoke, flames and often vigorous ejection of the battery and other parts.”
The manufacturer and the subsequent Canadian distributor were not immediately available for comment at all.
Greer said that the government should not allow minors to buy such dangerous devices.
“I would like to see these unregulated ones possibly banned,” Greer said. “It is horrific to see your kid with his face so burnt.”
According to the Non-Smokers Rights Association, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Newfoundland and Labrador are the only provinces that have not banned the sale of electronic cigarettes to minors. The decision is left to municipalities in Alberta.
Alberta Health Minister Sarah Hoffman said the province has formed a working group with the federal government and is now looking at regulating electronic cigarettes.
Les Hagen of the Edmonton-based charity Action on Smoking and Health said what had happened to Ty Greer is another big reason why electronic cigarettes need to be regulated federally and also provincially.
“We absolutely need product standards. For instance, they shouldn’t explode in your mouth,” Hagen said.
“The other element with this particular incident is this product was sold to a minor, to a 16-year-old. We would like to see a ban on the sale of these products to minors, just like we have with cigarettes.”
The Federal Standing Committee on Health last March had issued a report that actually suggests funding independent research into the several health effects of electronic cigarettes and the increasing need to regulate them very carefully.

In the earlier days, when we need to pack food material to carry with us during our travel or outing, we used natural material for the same. Today, the moment we need to pack lunch for our children or elders at home or for travel, we search for aluminum foil or tissue paper. These artificial package materials we use are highly hazardous to health. The possibility of the chemicals present in the artificial package material we use seeping inside the food is high. While packing is easy using these materials than the natural ones used in olden days, the risk factor is huge. It is better to understand the consequences of packing hot food items in the aluminum foil or tissue paper.
Let us see some of the reasons why we must not indulge in packing hot food in tissue paper or aluminum foil
1. Ingredients that make a tissue paper
The regular tissue paper we use is made of 30% softwood and 70% hardwood. Apart from these woods, the other ingredients used to make a tissue paper are chemicals for breaking down the tree to good matter, water and bleaching material. The base material used for producing tissue paper is the old low-quality paper created by the recycling method. For recycling old paper chemicals like artificial oxygen and sodium hydroxide are used. Peroxide is the chemical used to remove the old stains and make the paper look bright white.
2. Ingredients that make Aluminum foil
As the very name suggests, Aluminum foil is directly the metal named aluminum. This foil is expected to be made of pure aluminum since the foil manufacturers usually use the metal which is pure to the extent of 92% to 99%.
3. Do you prefer tissue papers over Aluminum foils?
If you are one of those people who prefer using tissue papers instead of Aluminum foils, then read through to understand certain facts about the same.
The bleach used to make the tissue papers look white is just one concern. If the tissues you use have been produced using methods which take the help of Elemental Chlorine, then the risk factor is very high. When tissue paper is produced through methods using Elemental Chlorine, harmful chemicals like dioxins which are a carcinogen and furan which a health affecting mutagen are released by the same. Our immune system and reproductive system tend to get affected by these chemicals released while eating food items packed in Tissue papers
Now, we know how safe people who go in for colored or printed tissue papers feel. While such printed tissue papers may look attractive for usage, the reality is, they can do more harm than the normal white tissue paper. In the process of printing or coloring, more harmful chemicals go into the same resulting in serious health issues.
5. What happens when food is packed in Aluminum foils?
Let us understand the exact equation of Aluminum foil and hot foods.
Most of us use Aluminum foils regularly for wrapping hot chapattis so that the heat can be retained till we eat. We also use these foils for packing freshly cooked chicken and colorfully roasted vegetables. While cooking foods using aluminum vessels is acceptable, packing them in aluminum foil must be avoided. This is due to the normal aluminum acceptance levels of the human body. While a normal human body is capable of evacuating certain quantity of aluminum regularly, an overdose of the same remains inside the body as toxins.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), human beings can take 40 milligrams of aluminum per kilogram of their body weight. This means, anyone weighing 65 kilograms can intake a maximum of 2600 milligrams of Aluminum. The problem of excess intake of Aluminum comes when we pack food in Aluminum foil over and above eating Salt, Spices, Corn, herbs and cheese which also have aluminum content. Our food intake adds up to the aluminum consumption when food items are packed in Aluminum foil where the metal seeps into the foods packed in them. We end up taking more than Aluminum than recommended.
The experience with human health which is having a direct impact due to the lifestyle factor makes the modern scientists worried. Researchers are trying to find out the impact of excess aluminum consumption on human health.
6. Other packing material in Aluminum
Like Aluminum foil, another packing material made out of aluminum is the containers in square and rectangle forms. The medical field is astounded by the fact that high levels of Aluminum are found in patients who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s is one of those resultant diseases of the evil effects of industrialization and modern unhealthy lifestyles we live.
7. Foils must not be used while cooking
Irrespective of whether we cook in a pot, pan or foil, what is more, important is to keep the content of Aluminum that goes inside us regularly. Cookware and another type of aluminum vessels that are sold for the purpose of cooking have a coating between them and the food they contain. This is to avoid the aluminum content from seeping inside the food that is being cooked in these vessels. The real problem enters when this inner layer gets worn off due to regular cleaning of the vessels making the aluminum content mix with the food inside them.
This wearing out of Aluminum in vessels can be avoided if you use the vessels for heating water multiple times. Heating plain water makes the aluminum matter settle strongly in the vessel not giving up later when other types of food get cooked. This happens since the cookware gets oxidizes during the water heating process.
However, cooking your food placing the same on the foil is altogether a different story. When food is cooked placed on the foil, the extent of aluminum that gets migrated into the food heated is very much great above the permitted amount.
Now that we have clearly seen the health hazards tissue papers and aluminum foil cause when food items are packed in them, it is better to avoid the same in the future at the least.

We all have different body types after all which is pretty awesome and amazing too. But that actually means your friend’s “smoothie diet” might work for them only but not at for you. It also means that some bodies should do higher weight workout reps while the others should stick to pilates. For instance, some bodies are naturally very thin, some are naturally a bit round, some are naturally strong and they are all very great. But depending on the type of body you all have, you might actually want to try with a different type of diet or a workout, since, you know, we cannot all eat a box of pizza without even suffering the consequences at all.
1. Do you have an ectomorph, an endomorph or a mesomorph type of body?
Determining your own type of body can be a bit hard, especially if you often fluctuate in weight or were just pregnant. For others, it is a sort of obvious. There are actually three types. This video will actually help you determine which you are.
2. The Endomorph Lady
These ladies actually carry weight on the bottom half of their body that is their abs, thighs and also bellies. Diet alone does not merely do the trick, so they actually need to focus on the training, cardio and above all, self-discipline. These girls generally tend to be very skinny with light muscles, small amount of fat, small joints, and a higher metabolism, according to Food Scientist and Nutrition Expert Christine Hronec.
Your workout should really look like high-intensity cardio mixed with a good amount of strength training. Your diet should include: 30 – 40% carbs, 30 – 35% protein and 30 – 35% fat. You can learn more right here.
This actually means a little less midnight pancakes and a bit cleaner eating. Endomorph to endomorph, I promise this is just doable.
3. The Ectomorph Lady
The ectomorph lady is very slim, long-limbed and not packing on much in the way of pounds or huge muscle. For them, it can be really hard to gain some weight say, if they actually want to add more shape to their slim bodies. According to this they can carry more fat than their muscle, leading to the idea of “skinny fat.” If they really want to be sleek and toned, they have to work out a bit. The ectomorph will probably benefit from the weight training (but not at all spot training). They are going to need to mix up their workout. Unlike the mesomorphs who tend to gain mass when weight training with heavy weights, ectomorphs might actually find that this is their sweet spot. Ectos will surely want to focus on eating various types of nutritious food which packs a punch in terms of lots of calories and even a good amount of energy: nuts, fruits, veggies and seeds.
4. The Mesomorph Lady
Well, to be lean and very strong! Mesomorphs are those freaks who simply just look fit on their own. They are compact, lean and even very athletic, and they even have hourglass figures. They tend to be somewhat medium-sized and possess wider at the shoulders rather than the hips region.
Mesos really need to be very careful that they do not get too bulky during their workout. Because of this, the focus should be on cardio and body sculpting especially to create some more curves. Mesos should be eating pretty well, even if they are naturally fit. They should actually strive for a balance in the amount of fat, proteins and carbohydrates.
