The lifespan or time of every human presents them with various opportunities in which they have to make decisions based on their choices or preferences. And people will always choose what they most prefer.

The fact however, that there are options is part of the variety of life. And even where there seems to be no options, options can still be created over time. Even as it concerns your health, you do have certain options on the treatment you take. And for those who choose CBD, there is also the capsule form that you can take but first let’s look at the following:

What is CBD?

This is one of the elements that make up the cannabis sativa plant also known as marijuana that has been found to have various health benefits. Its full name is cannabidiol and unlike the other major element of the cannabis plant known as tetrahydrocannabinol or THC for short, it is not psycho active (meaning that you wouldn’t get high from consuming it). You can read more about it here.

What are the Health Benefits of CBD

There are health benefits of cannabidiol in the human body. This is so because there are endocannabinoid receptors in the human body which interact well with CBD when it is ingested by an individual in particular and all mammals in general. This is the primary reason for its various health benefits in the body. Some of the health benefits include:

It Is Anti-Seizure

Research so far has shown that cannabidiol is able to quell seizure in people however, the extent to which it is able to do this is not yet fully ascertained. Thus, it can be recommended for people with epileptic conditions for relief from the seizure attacks.

Anxiety Relief

People with anxiety challenges or conditions (especially those suffering from panic attacks) can take CBD for relief from the condition. This is because, it is able to positively affect how your brain responds to serotonin which is the chemical in your body that is linked to mental health. It is even recommended for those with PTSD as it has proven helpful to them.

It Protects the Brain

The medical word for this function is neuroprotection. Some people suffer from neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease which can take a huge toll on the individual and on loved ones. However, cannabidiol is neuroprotective and will prevent further deterioration of an individual’s brain functions and prevent the condition from developing in people who are susceptible to it. 

Pain Relief

Again, this is due to CBD’s ability to interact with the receptors in the brain, this helps the body to bear pain. The pain here is not just headaches and all but includes those undergoing chemotherapy, spinal cord injuries and chronic pain. Many people who have used it prefer it to analgesic as they believe it to be more effective.

Cancer Treatment

Studies have shown that cannabidiol prevents the growth of tumors including cancerous tumors in the body. These studies have not yet been able to categorically state why this is possible but all studies show that indeed it does prevent cancerous growth. This does not mean that it is a cure in itself rather, it is more of a preventive measure.   

It is Anti-Acne

Many people have skin care issues (acne primarily) for which they apply many skin care ointments and medications. CBD helps prevent the over activity of the sebaceous glands that produce sebum on the skin because too much of it is the primary cause of acne. However, it is important that you also consult your skin care specialist before going ahead with this option especially if you have a severe condition.

What Are CBD Capsules?

Can I Open a CBD Capsule and Use That Oil Sublingually? - South Florida  Reporter

Well, simply put, they are full spectrum CBD packaged in the form of a pill just as you have other drugs or medications in pill forms. An additive is added to it to make dosage calculations possible while coconut powder is also part of its make up as it helps to boost its absorption in the body and also improves its effectiveness generally.

As can be deduced from the above, it is made up totally of vegan ingredients and are full spectrum organic. It is also not made with any animal gelatin, its dosing is easy and there is no after taste after its ingestion.

How Do These Pills Work?

The first thing to know is that they work very well. The basic and only difference is in the manner the body absorbs it which is different from how CBD creams or vapes are absorbed. For absorption to start, the pill has to have been ingested into your stomach from where it goes to your liver then to your blood stream and then to the endocannabinoid receptors in your body.

Another point to note is that there is no best or better form of cannabidiol whether it be pills, oil, cream or vapes, it is all a matter of choice and preference. The only difference in these products is in how the body absorbs it.

Finally, a question one might ask is; can you break open cbd capsules to ingest its content? And the answer to this is yes you can, if you would want your body to absorb it sublingually. However, these capsules are designed to be ingested through the digestive tract and would not be as effective as it should be if ingested otherwise.

Conclusion

As earlier stated, people will always be left with choices that they have to make themselves. Sometimes however, these choices have consequences.

But with CBD products, there is no wrong choice, just personal preferences. And any choice you make in this instance, will still work for your good.

Haiti President Jovenel Moïse killed in attack at home

Unidentified gunmen stormed the property at 01:00 local time (05:00 GMT), interim PM Claude Joseph said.

He has called for calm and declared a state of emergency nationwide.

Mr Moïse had led Haiti, one of the poorest nations in the world, since 2017 but had faced widespread protests demanding his resignation.

The nation’s recent history has been plagued by coups, political instability and widespread gang violence.

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson tweeted that he was “saddened at the death of Mr Moïse”, calling it “an abhorrent act” and appealing for calm. US President Joe Biden offered condolences to the people of Haiti for the “horrific assassination”.

First Lady Martine Moïse later reportedly arrived by plane in Fort Lauderdale, south Florida, for treatment. There is no official word on her condition.

Who will take control?

Mr Joseph called the shooting of the president a “heinous, inhuman and barbaric act”, saying the attackers were “foreigners who spoke English and Spanish”. Haiti’s official languages are Creole and French.

Some reports spoke of men dressed in black carrying high-powered weapons who may have pretended to be part of a US drug enforcement operation, although no official details have been given.

Haiti’s ambassador to the US, Bocchit Edmond, said there was “no way” US drugs agents carried out the attack. He believed it was the work of “professional mercenaries”.

Addressing the nation, Mr Joseph vowed the killers would be brought to justice and said the security situation was “under control”.

The state of emergency, or “state of siege”, allows for the banning of gatherings and use of the military for police roles, along with other extensions of executive powers.

Mr Joseph said that “all measures have been taken to ensure continuity” and that “democracy and the republic will win”.

But questions remain about how much control Mr Joseph can assert.

Haiti’s constitution says ministers, under the leadership of the prime minister, take control in the event of presidential vacancy until elections can be called.

But that also remains unclear, as a new prime minister, Ariel Henry, was named by Mr Moïse just this week but has yet to be sworn in.

The US later said it believed elections should go ahead this year, to bring about a peaceful transfer of power.

The US has been Haiti’s biggest donor for 50 years but has had a fractious relationship with some of its rulers and has carried out a number of blockades and interventions.

The country has also had strong counter-narcotics ties with Haiti to try to prevent South American drugs being shipped through the nation and on to the US.

The streets of Port-au-Prince appeared to be mostly calm on Wednesday.

One resident, Pascale Solages, told the BBC: “We are on our cell phones, our radio, our television, waiting for what happens next… everyone is scared.”

The neighbouring Dominican Republic ordered the “immediate closure” of its border with Haiti.

Modern Concept of Women Liberalization in Islam

Long ago, there was not any modern concept of women liberalization. Our beloved Prophet Muhammad SAAS informed us of the status, value and honor of women. He SAAS taught the real meanings of Islam and the definition of a woman’s role in the society. Rasool Allah SAAS liberated women by giving them equal chance to study, groom and pray in front of Allah Subhan wa Tallah.

Today, when woman are subjugated and dominated in the name of modernism and liberty of woman they have lost their real beauty and essence of existence. They are conflicted and confused. They do not know what to choose. If they follow the traditions, they feel they have sacrificed their soul. If they follow their heart and follow the modern Western concepts, they feel they are destroying the peace of their homes. They are afraid to play the role of mother. They are not happy to run in the rat race blindfolded at all.

Women do not realize how cunningly they have been enslaved. In pursue of their career and trying to harmonize with needs at work and at home have made them tired and devoid of femininity. They are asked to balance between home, kids, relatives and work. How is that possible?

When a machine is made to make coffee how can you expect to produce milk shake in it? You would need to buy a blender or shaker to get a glass of delightful milk shake. Women are made to be loved and give birth to beautiful children. Their anatomy is different and not suitable for many jobs. They are delicate and need pampering but they are pushed towards myriad jobs that are against her nature, anatomy and personality. It can be in the name of liberty or liberalization; it can be in the name of modernization or financial needs. None of us lives in a true Islamic society. All of us live in mixed traditions and combined cultures. The so-called Islamic societies are far away from the real knowledge and implementation of Deen. Without getting acquainted with real knowledge no one can understand Islam and the role of woman in society.

Islam permits woman to educate her and work. It has clearly stated that men are responsible for providing the shelter and food to her. If ever she earns she is not bound to spend her income or salary on the household. She can keep it to herself. She can demand the wages for feeding the baby and for performing any household chores. Only if she wants to let it go then it is her own choice. She has the right to choose her man or her husband. If she likes someone, she can ask her kafeel or father, brother and elders to arrange for the matrimony. Only the direct interaction among men and women is restricted which is again for the protection of women in Islam. No man is allowed to take her rights away that are given to her by Allah Subhana Wa Tallah and Allah’s Apostle SAAS. Any man who takes disadvantage and snatches away the rights of his mother, sister, wife or daughter is subject to answer in the court of Allah SWT. Woman has share in wealth as well as she can contribute in any field of life with her immense wisdom, tolerance, skills and patience. She must keep in her mind the preferences and limitations set by Allah SWT and His Apostle SAAS.

Key Announcements For Employers From The Budget For 2012

The Chancellor announced his budget for 2012 yesterday, the aim being to “reward work and support growth”. Key announcements for employers included:

Whilst the increase to the personal allowance and the rethink on child benefit can only encourage and motivate employees, some disappointment has been expressed by business groups that the Budget did not go further to relieve further the regulatory employment law burden. It may be that in fact the concern is more rightly leveled at the lack of acceleration in employment law reform. Whilst a small number of changes will come into force on 6 April, the most significant being the increase in the qualifying period of service for unfair dismissal claims from 1 year to 2 years, there are a number of potential changes in the pipeline – many of which may still be some time off being introduced, including the Government’s call for evidence on dismissal processes, including consideration of introducing compensated no fault dismissal for micro-businesses. However, this call for evidence does not close until June and will then be followed by a review and potentially consultation on any legislative changes.

Advantages of Creation of Bangladesh to Pakistan.

Advantages of Creation of Bangladesh to Pakistan.

M.Akram Khan Niazi, Pakistan

Usually smaller Parts of a country having extraordinary resources tries to break away from the mainland to take the maximum advantage of their resources for their advantage, and to protect themselves from the drain of their resources to majority or dominant section of the country, but in case of Pakistan Majority Part on the basis of population, which was also having scare resources, separated from the other part, Generally, it is regarded as an unfortunate event for Pakistan by people of Pakistan, and no Pakistani tries to see other side of the coin of that event for analysis of the benefits achieved to them by this event. The reason of this is that all literature about that event has been written by those who were living in East Pakistan and they suffered personally by this event, due to which they always indicate their miseries and losses and forget to explain the advantages of that event to whole Pakistani Nation. Therefore, it is necessary to see the real results of this event. With the separation of East Pakistan, following advantages were achieved to Pakistan. 1. Economical * Separation of Bangladesh was as much beneficial for Pakistan as separation of Pakistan from India. * As the part of world in which East Pakistan was situated, was having limited resources, and many poor areas of subcontinent are situated in that part, such as Bihar , Assam ,West Bengal, Burma and Bhutan. Technically it was not in the interest of Pakistan, to keep itself attached with East Bengal(Historically one of the most poorest area of subcontinent) .In fact Pakistan after separation saved its future from economic burden of poverty ridden Bangladesh, * Huge Population and scare resources of East Bengal were clear Indicators, that there will be no extraordinary progress in future in that province and no sensible person may think that it was valuable for Pakistan to keep itself attached with most poverty ridden part of this region. * Being a part of East Pakistan, rulers were forcing to West Pakistani citizens to become a market of East Pakistan’s low quality Products, such as Tea, Pans and jute on artificial high prices on the name of Patriotism, while now such type high quality Products may be purchased from other countries on very low prices. * After separation of Bangladesh, it was possible for Pakistan to make its economic policies without having any concern of interests of a far situated part. * Pakistan Economic Managers relieved themselves from the Economic restrictions due to economic interest of East Bengal. That situation was as much harmful, as today Pakistan start to take care of the economic interest of Myanmar or West Bengal; it is certain that such type situation will be disastrous for Pakistan. * With the analysis of economic situation of present day Pakistan and Bangladesh, shows that Pakistan GDP and Foreign currency reserves are double than that of Bangladesh and Electricity production is also 5 times more. It is obvious, that separation was much more in the interest of Pakistan, Because, the only solution of the Disparity between two parts, was to serve the Bangladesh with the resources of West Pakistan. Otherwise there was no other magic solution to address that disparity. * It is still obvious that, there is still no charm in having trade links with countries of South Asia, because it is not in the economic interest of Pakistan, instead of that we should focus on rich and developed areas such as China, Middle East, Far East, Europe and USA. 2. Political Advantages. * Due to extraordinary majority of Bengali Population, it was not possible for any province of West Pakistan to become equivalent to that majority any time in future, and it was certain that representatives of Provinces of West Pakistan will always remain in opposition in assemblies as per modern time democracy principles, this was really a frightening situation and the People of Pakistan were going to be ruled by any ethnocentric Bengali Leader or by any Bengali Military dictator for ever. * Due to Bengali nationalism and ethnocentrism, on the basis of which People of Bangladesh were victimizing the Urdu Speaking Muslim refugees from India and that is still continue, and their Ethnic Cleansing with aborigines people of CHT, were clearly indicating that people of that area were not sincere and aware of the Ideology of Pakistan, in fact attachment of Pakistan with East Bengal was self deception and nothing else. * Due to agitation style and different culture, the politicians of East Pakistan were always blaming Pakistan for their problems and exploitations, while people of Pakistan were worried about deteriorating condition of people of East Pakistan due to poverty and natural disasters, and they were too much fed up with that situation as they were seeing no end of all this, as this thing was also harming the Basic Ideology of Pakistan, and therefore to get rid of this situation and to avoid baseless allegations it was necessary to separate that area(East Bengal) from Pakistan, and this was the main reason that West Pakistani Military Personnel, even having capability for defending that part decided very easily and conveniently to end their any relation with that land on the basis of the facts that they were tired of all those messy affairs. * Due to separation of East Pakistan, Pakistan saved itself and its ideology from baseless criticism of Bengalese Politicians, and now on real grounds they are blaming each other for their problems. * With the separation of Bangladesh, Pakistan Islamic Ideology became more prominent with the introduction of Islamic laws and future scenario of Pakistan became much more firmed with the conversion of population ratio to 98 % Muslims, while with Bangladesh, presence of Huge Hindu minority was having adverse effects on the ideological progress of the country.

3. Security Advantages:

As East Pakistan was situated in the abdomen and inside the body of India and thousand miles away from West Pakistan, India was using this factor for blackmailing and pressurizing Pakistan from the beginning, In fact burden of huge population of East Bengal was loaded on West Pakistan to make Pakistan a crippled and failed state by Indian National Congress. India used that part as a button for keeping under pressure to Pakistan in 1947, in war of 1965 and again in 1970 with policy to occupy large chunk of land in East Pakistan. Due to 1000 miles distance between both parts and that also filled by enemy land, in such worst scenario even maintaining contacts between security forces and their mobility was in fact a difficult, expensive and life taking task, accompanied with wastage of huge resources, ultimately resulting in weakening of Defense forces and economy of the country. By separation of East Bengal, Pakistan was able to get rid of its weak point which was a most easy and favorite target of India. Due to that now Pakistan Defense is more strong and protected as compared to vulnerable and weak position before 1971. 4. Social Advantages: * With the separation of Bengal flow of population from densely populated Bangladesh to parts of West Pakistan stopped, which was a good development for the culture and social set up of West Pakistan. * Due to two national languages, Cultural evolution of the people of West Pakistan was stopped and their local languages were dying, with the separation of Bangladesh, that process was stopped. * After separation of Bangladesh huge jobs opportunities were raised for people of different provinces of West Pakistan in both Federal and Provincial Governments. Due to elimination of share of people of Bengalese in civilian Jobs, which resulted in an increase in participation of local population in the affairs of country, by this their sense of depriving was minimized. * People of Bengal are usually dark skinned, while people of West Pakistan were of Fair Skinned, due to continuous flow of Bengalese from East Bengal was creating racial discomfort and fears in the mind of local populations, that by this they will become minority in their own provinces, specially in the case when Federal Government was encouraging Bengalese to rehabilitate in West Pakistan, By separation of East Bengal this process of migration was also stopped.

This is the reason that after separation of East Pakistan, Mr. Mujibur Rehman was immediately released by President Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, and he never expressed any regret about creation of Bangladesh.

Similarly once Prersident Zia-ul-Haq commented that freedom fighters of Bangladesh were in fact the freedom fighters of Pakistan, Now Bangladesh is a free country and Pakistan is also a free country.

It is crystal clear from all above mentioned facts that separation from Problematic East Bengal created new life and new freedom in Pakistan. Written By M.Akram Khan Niazi. Karachi,Pakistan

India Adopting Universal Standards on Child Labour

The level of garment factory compliance is very high for Indian exporters. Large global firms, conscious of their image, often set up their own compliance standards for the exporters to ensure that all standards are being complied with. Many U.S. companies have included child labour in their code of conduct, due to persistent evidence of child exploitation in the industry.

Common compliance codeThere is a huge compliance fatigue in the Indian apparel export industry. Although catering to the global brands, apparel suppliers are yet to accept that compliance is an essential management practice. Further, the Indian apparel export industry has decided to adopt zero tolerance on child labour and cleanse the supply chain.

“This common compliance code will not only give the opportunity for the industry to negate international claims against child labour promotion in the garment industry, but will also help to improve the image of the industry and win more international businesses,” as per Premal Udani, Chairman, Apparel Export Promotion Council (AEPC).

AEPC-DishaApparel Export Promotion Council (AEPC), the apex body of Indian apparel exporters, has launched the programme “DISHA” (Driving Industry towards Sustainable Human Capital Advancement) to aid garment exporters comply with global standards pertaining to child labour.

The programme will encourage members to follow better social practices, which will give them a competitive edge in the global market where industrial compliance code is increasingly becoming an important factor in buying decision.

Responsibilities of Disha member factoryDISHA member factory is committed to adhere to the DISHA common code of conduct (CCC) Principle on child labour and takes the responsibility to:

Disha-CCC for child labourDisha- common code of conduct (CCC) is based on various central and state laws. Some of the laws that specify conditions on the subject of employment of children and young persons are as follows:

By implementing DISHA CCC, it will be possible for the DISHA Member Factory to establish factory compliance to adhere to Indian laws, re-frame policies and better practices aimed at improving social and environmental impacts by the factories.

The FCRA was enacted in 1970 to promote accuracy, fairness, and the privacy of personal information assembled by Credit Reporting Agencies (CRAs) and provided to businesses, including credit card companies, banks, employers, landlords, and others. The FCRA is a complex statute that has since been significantly altered by Congress and by the Courts. Comprehensive amendments were made in the Consumer Credit Reporting Reform Act of 1996 and most recently by the enactment of the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act of 2003 (FACTA).

The Act provides protections and remedies for debtors while allowing debt collection agencies to collect legitimate debts. Some states have more stringent laws.

Improvements or even repairs that are not performed in accordance with building codes or that are done without a required building permit can become serious problems in a number of ways.

Potential problems include increased liability if someone is injured due to unsafe conditions and issues when disclosures of the deficiencies are required at time of sale. Building codes can both determine what rehab you can do and what rehab you must do.

Tasks that might require a permit can vary significantly among jurisdictions. In some jurisdictions one can construct an entire house without worrying about building codes and without a single permit. In others, a permit is required to replace a leaking water heater or even to add an electrical outlet.

Most states license building contractors. Many states set maximum dollar limits (e.g., $250 in CA and $1500 in AZ) and limit the types of work for which a license is not required. Some states even limit what an owner can do on his/her own property, particularly on rentals.
