The Lord Of Guns

Guns, guns, the musical fruit. No, wait. That beans. Anyway, guns… always more of them, aren’t theתוצאת תמונה עבור ‪lord of war‬‏re? Like it was wisely said in Lord of War “there is 1 gun for every 12 people on the planet. The question is, how do we arm the other 11?”

In the U.S., guns have been part of the American way of life. It’s how this country was built, along with many others. During the Civil War, guns and tactics paved the road to a Union victory and the emancipation of countless souls. Trouble was, it came at the expense of so many others.

I am a firm believer of the line ‘guns don’t kill people. People with guns kill people.’ And it’s true. There are so many ideas on weapons. People need to have the ability to defend themselves, their homes, and their loved ones. We cannot count on law-enforcement to take care of everything, which brings us to gun safety and firearms education. It is necessary. Very much so.

There are some countries which have much looser gun laws, and the gun-related violence there is not nearly as high as in the states. So, obviously, it is not a question of guns, but of the people who are handling and operating them. We need to have more education, better safety measures, and ways of making sure that those who need not be in possession of guns don’t have them. Gunivore is where you go to get all the information you need via reviews or articles about guns.

But how do we tell the difference? How can we make sure that kids stop bringing weapons to schools? We can’t. Not all the way, anyway. But it starts with education. There are many law-abiding civilians out there, carriers of the open and concealed nature who are doing everything in their power to be responsible and safe. It in on those people to teach their kids and the ones close to them about firearm safety.

Some accidents are unavoidable. Sometimes there are weapons recalls, and with good cause. Heck, even Glock with its Safe Action system has had to recall certain models for fear of malfunction. Yeah, they call it an upgrade, but it is a recall, and we know it.

As much as you can try and limit and regulate the distribution of weaponry, there are some elements out there, like criminals, who wouldn’t care. They want a gun, they get a gun. Will those people teach their kids about safety? Who is to say? I am not sure, and I would not presume to have all the answers. I wish for a time when guns will no longer be a part of our everyday life, but right now they have to be.

Good guys need to have guns, because the bad ones have them. But even so, the stats of gun-related accidents does not match up. There is too much of it. And I am all for self-defense, but there is a limit. At some point, the idea of the second amendment was twisted a bit, I feel. And while guns are undoubtedly a necessity in some places, it is not for everyone to have. It was written in the bill of rights, but how can it be a right if it is so rigidly regulated?

Healthy Skin

It turns out beauty is more than skin deep: The average person slathers, lathers, rubs and sprays, 10 different skin care products on his or her body every day–and since our skin acts more like a sponge than a barrier, we absorb the nearly 130 chemicals we regularly expose ourselves to. Cosmetics companies and the FDA maintain that these chemicals are safe, and many of them are–in small doses at least. But consider that the average woman wears makeup every day, and you begin to understand how a little dab here a quick spray there begins to add up. The fact is, no one really knows how certain chemicals affect us over time, or how they react in our bodies in combination. Other chemicals have known dangers: Phosphates, for example, which are often found in artificial fragrances, are a class of hormone disrupt or which can be linked to birth defects, sperm damage, infertility, and the feminization of baby boys, for instance.

Almost 90 percent of the 10,500 cosmetics and skin care ingredients known to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration have not been evaluated for safety by the Cosmetic Ingredient Review, the FDA, or any other publicly accountable institution, according to the Environmental Working Group. To be fair, no one’s dropping dead after a using a mascara wand or a body wash, and manufacturers have an interest in creating products that don’t harm their customers. But complex chemicals with potential unknown side effects lead us to follow the Precautionary Principle. That is to say, if we’d prefer to err on the side of safety until we know. We’re not the only ones who feel this way: More than 1,110 personal-product ingredients have been banned for use in cosmetics in the European Union because of concerns that they may cause cancer, birth defects, or reproductive ills. By contrast only 10 are banned here in the U.S. Maple Holistics is the best place to go for all of the best reviews, articles and products.

Don’t be fooled by cosmetic advertising: Myriad creams, lotions, and potions at the drugstore and cosmetics counter make promises they could never deliver on. (Trust us, all the fancy products in the world will never turn the tide of aging.) Eye creams, for instance, rarely vary in formulation from your basic facial moisturizer. Our recommendation is to keep it simple: All you need is a basic cleanser, toner, moisturizer, and broad-spectrum sunscreen to keep your skin in tip-top shape. Everything else is just dressing.Toxic synthetic chemicals are the biggest issue in the beauty industry today, so it pays to hone a keen eye when it comes to examining product labels. For example, it’s counter intuitive, but unfortunately, the words “natural” and “all-natural” are not regulated labeling terms. A great resource is the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep Cosmetics Database site, which rates popular cosmetics and personal-care products with hazard scores on a scale of 0 to 10, depending on their toxicity.

So choosing a natural option is probably the best one available at this point in terms of treating your skin and keeping healthy at the same time.
