Agree to disagree is a rare occurrence in this pre-election season

In the current pre-election times, saying that some folks disagree about a certain candidate is an understatement of the year.  The emotions fly, the friendships are ruined, and it seems that the best way to handle it is to avoid the issue altogether. 143 more words

What are the odds?! I was just thinking of getting this item coz I found it on one vlog but I didn’t know what it’s called. Then now I realize it's not only pretty (decorative) but it has therapeutic properties, too.   Check out this article, too. "Himalayan Salt Lamp Benefits: Do Salt Lamps Really Work?" This guy talks about not only the benefits but how this lamp works, where's the best place to put it, and he also gives tips on how to choose the best ones based on his reviews. It's very helpful, it saved me time and energy. I'm already ordering my first one from Amazon.   salt-oasis.jpg   How do Himalayan salt lamps work? Salt is hygroscopic, so the lamps attract water molecules from the air; this means the lamps trap dirt, pollen, and smoke particles which are carried in water vapor.  Once these airborne contaminants have been locked in the salt, clean water is re-released and thus it has a purifying effect on the air. The hygroscopic effect works for as long as the light is on, theoretically, that is. It’s good practice to turn off your salt lamp for an hour every few weeks to let it cool and then gently rub it with a damp cloth to clean away trapped dust and particles.   Scientists know that salt does absorb water from the air but that it quickly reaches an equilibrium state (it doesn’t take up anymore water because it is saturated). This is the same for silica packets. Both can be revitalized by drying, which a burning and warming lamp does. So there is merit to this claim. What’s more is that the heat from the bulb inside that warms up the lamp releases negative ions. And there are the health-boosting effects of salt itself too.  

The truth about the origin of ´Himalayan´ pink rock salt

First of all: there are no salt mines in the Himalayas. Pink rock salt is usually mined from Pakistan or Poland. “Himalayan” is just a descriptor, because a “Punjabi Foothills salt lamp” doesn’t sound quite so exotic. That’s not evidence against the efficiency of the lamps, of course, but watch out for vendors who claim that their lamps are worth twice as much as their rivals because they are made from better-quality salt. It’s all the same salt which Pakistani grandmothers use for cooking. It also puts the jubilant story of miners working 1500 meters (4921 feet) deep underground, beneath the Himalayan foothills being happy because of this magical pink rock salt in another perspective.
