Generic vs. Brand Name Drugs – Does it Matter? [INFOGRAPHIC]

The Zeit

Blink Health created an infographic that describes the differences between generic and brand name drugs and we feel it is important we share this with you. This, given the number of people who are overpaying for prescription drugs. Here at The Zeit, we have talked about how the Fitness & Health industry is making millions by taking advantage of desperate people trying to lose weight or look a certain way. We have also featured blog posts about the likes of FDA possibly suppressing a possible AIDS cure and how most supplements are a waste of your hard-earned money. We hope our readers benefit from our latest look into the vague world of the health industry.

Who are Blink Health?

Blink Health‘s mission is to make prescription medications available at lower prices to millions of people across America. They are the first company to develop a proprietary technology to group…

Scientific Notation, #Math in the real world @jgreenhood

The Unexpected Tale as a Caregiver and How to Do It Better

scientific-notations111

Discuss how scientific notation is used in our daily and work lives when we are dealing with VERY SMALL and VERY LARGE numbers. Since all of you are studying to be in the medical field, scientific notation is very important. Discuss situations in which you have encountered the use of scientific notation.

Scientific notation (also referred to as standard form or standard index form) is a way of expressing numbers that are too big or too small to be conveniently written in decimal form. It is commonly used by scientists, mathematicians, and engineers, in part because it can simplify certain arithmetic operations.”

Honestly, right now beyond writing 1,000 I sometimes write it as 1K which is shorter but not what you’re asking about. Other than that I don’t use it at all. In the medical field you might use it in dosing but, as we learned in class too (KISS)…

x+y = coordinates Math @jgreenhood

The Unexpected Tale as a Caregiver and How to Do It Better

Think of situations in which it might be helpful to set up coordinate planes, using an x-axis and a y-axis. What kind of information might you plot on this coordinate plane? Can you see any trends by looking at points on a coordinate plane?

coordinateMany of my classmates had some great responses from video games, GPS & Roadmaps. What would you say?

I know normally when you use a GPS you enter street addresses but you can enter coordinates as well. There is this game called geocaching (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. It’s kind of fun. It’s like looking for treasure! Here’s an example, I live in the same zip as the school, 32809. Big Oak (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.‘s cash is at coordinates: N 28° 28.792 W 081° 22.847. So if you plug in those coordinates to your…

Positive & Negative #Math in the workplace @jgreenhood

The Unexpected Tale as a Caregiver and How to Do It Better

positive_negative_r07c7dSo I just finished my Algebra class and we had a few interesting conversations so I thought I’d share. One of our discussions was, “Can you think of situations, either in your workplace or in your home or recreational activities where you might use both positive and negative numbers? How important is it to pay close attention to the “signs, + or -” that go with numbers?” So I’m curious what your responses would be to this question.

Here is mine….

Other than in this class, I do not really use negative numbers. I always kept it simple. Online banking balances your account. I don’t do checks. So I guess the closest I’ve gotten to using negative numbers is inventory. For example had an order for a Xoar 20 x 8 WW II Three Bladed prop, unfortunately, we were all out of them. So now our inventory is -1 until…

Those little tire pressure gauges are great when you need them, but they are a hard to read and easily misplaced. What I liked about this gauge was how easy it was to use and hold.

I know many women are sensitive to the fact that if there’s no ring there’s something wrong in the relationship. The truth is till recently active men didn’t have an alternative ring to wear. A metal band can cause a mechanic to loos a finger. Then you have odd balls like my dad who would break out from wearing gold.

The thing I like about these silicon rings is you don’t have to take it off while showering. When I go running, my hands get sweaty and I had my wedding band fly off. Doesn’t occur with this band. Same with doing dishes or moisturizing.

Only down fall is SOL doesn’t make them for women. 😦 So for the time being us girls are SOL. ;P~

How to Make the #BestiesCoffee @Jgreenhood #Food

Easy to use compact #bestiescoffee grinder.

I’m so behind on my sponsored blog posts… I wanted to do a holiday coffee post and with New Years right around the corner and it being the day after Boxing Day, I’m sure many say it’s just too late. Well, I say, “phooey! It is never too late to keep the coffee holiday cheer going!”

Ok so ever since the No Spoons Green Tea video, I’ve been on a Green Tea Latta kick! Since I love trying new products and encouraging people to try new things. So even though it takes a while to hand grind fresh coffee beans using this awesome new coffee grinder I just had to give these Amazing recipes a try.

Shortly after I got this grinder, I got the chance to purchase WealthPreneur’s Coffee at a discount. It didn’t suggest how much to use so I did some research on how to make a perfect cup of coffee and let’s start there. So after doing some research, I found this article from the Telegraph, “Is it possible to make the perfect cup of coffee at home?” to be the easiest and best instructions. It starts off with how to roast your own beans, which is something I want to try one day.  As you scroll down it talks about grinding your own beans. This grinder does a Medium to Medium-Fine grind. Which works for drip grinders and percolators, not for cold brewing. I’ve never tried cold brewing, If you have please comment below.

I know not everyone likes their coffee strong & dark, but if you’re like me and use milk or creamer, using a real dairy product is best.

Before trying these keep in mind if you choose to use fresh herbs they are more potent than the store bought dried & ground herbs. IF you are curious, “How Long Do Spices Last?“, click the link to find out.

Food.com use to be RecipeZaar. This site is an online easy to organize, search & store recipes you like or want to try.  For More great coffee recipes check out my Coffee folder on Food.com. The best part about Food.com recipes is you can adjust the yield online.

The more I research the health benefits of herbs the more I wish I’d known about their benefits sooner. Maybe, my parents would still be here, maybe their health could have improved. Hind-site is always  20/20 and it does no one any good to dwell on the what if’s…

It was probably 6 months ago that Michelle from my run club mentioned this bright orange root. She told me she was taking it for inflammation. Although I don’t suffer from chronic inflammation, when I saw this root available at the local FreshFields, I had to give it a try. I honestly can say I had no clue what to do with it. I peeled it, which I guess I didn’t need to do. Minced it and threw it in. The flavor was incredible.  A little goes a long way as it’s very strong.

So when I got the opportunity to try this in pill form I jumped at the chance. I noticed less aches and pains after a long 10 mile PR run! Little did I know what other benefits I could possibly be reaping from this wonderful root. Listed below are it’s potential benefits.

  • Manage Depression
  • Lower Blood Sugar levels
  • Cancer Fighter
  • Antibacterial
  • Improve oxygen intake to improve mental capacity
  • Heartburn
  • Pain Management
  • Stomach Pain & Issues
  • Jaundice
  • Liver issues
  • Gallbladder Issues
  • Ring Worm

The Green Tea (Matcha) Expedition! Hunt For Organic Matcha #OrganicWiseMatcha @jgreenhood

If you’re a gaijin to the art of Matcha which is associated with a beautiful  Japanese tradition. It’s not simply steeping a bag of tea leaves in a cup of hot water. When I was a little girl, I saw this piece on TV talking about the Japanese Tea Ceremony and I was hooked. 30 years later, not had the chance to do this dream yet but I’m now 1 step closer to being able to do this at least at home.

So without being told we know not all brands are equal and many companies will cut corners to cut costs. So how do you know if a brand is a great brand. Well, knowing how a company grows their tea is a start. The leaves are kind of delicate and require shading.

The color is another example. If it’s yellowish, it’s going to taste kind of bitter and is not a good quality of Matcha.

Location Location Location! Matcha is Japanese, so personally that’s where it should come from. I do know China does make Matcha, but my understanding is the quality is not so great. Many people worry about the radiation in Fukushima has tainted the tea. I’ve not seen anyone really talking about this issue, but as tenacious as the Japanese are about caring for these plants, I’m not that worried.

The touch the feel of Matcha the drink of our lives…. According to Daily Tea’s post, High vs Low Quality Matcha? 5 Easy Tips to Knowing the Difference the feel should be a fine powder that is silky like baby powder.
