The Nature’s Special Creature: Woman

When God created the first man, Adam, HE used just a day in creating the man. Not only did God created Adam within that day, HE also created all other terrestrial animals (animals that live on land such as sheep, lion, elephants, birds of all kinds etc.) on the same day.

Hence, we are able to know the limited time during which God created Adam, the first man.

However, when it comes to the creation of the first woman, Eve, we are unable to know the extent of time that Father Nature spent in creating her. All we know was that the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam (Gen. 2:21) while creating Eve.

Hence, we are not able to quantify or verify the duration of Adam’s sleep but it must be for a very long time, maybe days, according to the description “deep sleep”.

If you compare a man’s physical body composition to that of a woman, you will discover that a woman’s body is extremely more complex, more resources-consuming in taking care of (resources like time-consuming, money-consuming, deep-research-consuming, energy-consuming etc.) This is because the Lord God himself took a long time in creating a woman; both the internal structure and external structure are core complex and more unique to that of a man, so a woman will usually take a long time, energy and whatever resources is available to her in taking good care of her body so as to maintain the already-set perfection.

This also shows that our Father Nature took a special time in creating the first woman, Eve, to make her more adorable to her husband, Adam.

Let’s look at the head of a woman, the long hair consumes a lot of money to make her more desirable to her male counterpart, the ear must be pierced and adorned with jeweled earrings, her face and her lips powdered and lipsticked respectively all these cosmetic preparation is deficient in a normal man. Man will just cut his hair low and have no need to powder his face and apply lipstick respectively.

Also, a woman’s body is so tender that it must be given special care. The breasts with relevant brassiere, the whole body creamed to make it more attractive (stretch-free, mark-free, dot-free etc.), the underside well taken care of before being covered with nice pants (e.g. the menstrual pad to cover the vagina opening during the menstrual period). All these preparation is not the ordained part of a man’s lifestyle.

The legs of a woman also speaks a lot about the woman; the legs must be well taken care of, nails well-polished, the whole feet well-manicured, sole of feet well maintained, marks not allowed on the legs/thighs so as not to disfigure/disorganise the woman’s natural beauty.

Most men don’t care about their appearance and may not bathe for days but a woman’s body is not designed for such.

Why? This is because a man was created along with other animals that don’t care about taking care of their body while the Eve, the first woman, was specially created without any form of interference from any quarter. So, when you see some men behaving like animals, don’t be amazed or offended. It’s from the grassroot!

Do you know that we never knew, because we were not informed, of the personal instructions and lectures God gave to Eve when she was created? We only knew of Adam’s instructions (Genesis 2: 15-17). Maybe God lectured the newly created beauty, Miss Eve, about how she must be taking good care of her body in order for her husband Mr. Adam to love her and desire her more and more! Pa Adam was deeply sleeping at the time, so we cannot really know the private instructions passed to Ma Eve.

While a man have only his stomach for food consumption, a woman’s internal structure consists of both stomach and uterus (which is designed by the Lord God baby creation).

I don’t really know the function of a man’s breast but I know a woman’s breast is the outlet of natural resources – milk – for the new-born baby as food. Also, the woman’s breast is a strong appellant for sexual arousal in her male counterparts.

While a man has his long penis and testis (inside scrotum) for urine and sperm release, a woman has a more complex vaginal components which are used for sexual performance, child birth, gateway to ovum fertilization, just to mention a few.

It is the fundamental duty of every woman to take care of her body, to make herself more beautiful and desirable, disease-free and completely healthy.

Father Nature (i.e. the Lord God) specifically designed a woman in a unique way far apart from her male counterparts, so a woman should make sure she helps in maintaining the divine design on her. She mustn’t neglect the divine efforts on her special body.

Natural Remedies for Anxiety: Top 5 Exercises for Anxiety Relief

I was awakened by butterflies. But instead of being in some enchanted land with fluttering fairies and surreal colors, I stared up at my ceiling and was worrying about money again. My old friend Anxiety had returned. He came back into my world and as usual, didn’t even bother knocking…

My breathing had become short. I had to sit up and used the momentum to swing out of bed and get ready to face the day. God, was it really only Wednesday?

No matter. I went down to the floor, assumed the push up position, and proceeded to bang out push-ups. 10-20-30, not stopping for a break until I reached 50. The butterflies weren’t all the way gone yet, but would soon be like crushed dead leaves in the palm of my hand, before they could molt into a full-blown anxiety attack.

Since I know I’m not the only one to have suffered from anxiety, I wanted to share the one thing that has always helped me, which has been to use fitness for anxiety relief. As simplistic as that may seem, it’s sometimes the most simple, fundamental things in life that still work best. And therefore, it sometimes bears reminding.

So get up, get going, and keep moving. It’s kind of like being in a war zone. You don’t want to make yourself a sitting duck, so you have to keep moving! Here are my top 5 exercises for natural anxiety relief:

  • Push-ups. Do as many as you can in one minute. Don’t worry (ha-ha!) about how many you can do or not do. Your goal is to just get going and slowly improve, but doing more each time. You’ll be surprised by how fast you’ll improve.
  • Sit-ups. They’re not just for sexy abs any more! Tell that especially to the person suffering from anxiety in the pit of his stomach. The goal here is the same as push-ups; just do as many as you can in sixty seconds. This is a great exercise for getting rid of butterflies and yes, it will help give you sexy abs, if you eat right too.
  • Pull-ups. This one may be the hardest for some people, especially if you don’t have access to a chin up bar, but you can buy an over-the-door model, bolt one to the wall, beam/rafter in the garage, or even just use a tree branch in the yard or nearby park. Do as many as you can. Even if it’s only 1 rep and then try for 2 next time and so on. This is another exercise where you will improve rapidly if you just keep at it.
  • Air Squats or Deep Knee Bends. Simply bend down until your thighs are at a complete 90 degree parallel to the floor while keeping your back as straight as possible. You can throw your arms out in front of you to help keep your balance and momentum going. Again, do as many as you can in a minute.
  • Jogging or Running. I realize not everyone can lace up their running shoes and go run for a few miles, but if you can, go for it. If not, that’s fine too, but get out there and walk at a brisk pace to get your heart rate up, thereby strengthening your cardiovascular system. Fresh air is best, so get outside if you can. Even if it’s raining. Embrace it!

You’ll notice that none of these exercises require a fancy gym and that’s the point. You don’t need to spend money for anxiety relief! It can be attained naturally, with a little effort, but once you get going, you will feel better. To your health and success!

Slim Body, Round Booty – How to Achieve This Body Aesthetic Through Workouts

If you are like most women, you probably wish you had a nice, slim body with a tight rounded booty. Often times when working out to lose weight and achieve a slim body, we end up losing all over and developing flat butt syndrome. Below I am going to describe some of the exercises that I use and you can use also to ensure that you’re burning fat while maintaining a beautiful booty!

1) My favorite workout that I have been performing for the past three years is stair-running. Since I started utilizing this workout my backside has never looked better! In order to do this workout first you need to find a staircase, I use one in my nearby college. Some other good places to find stairs include, office buildings, train stations, hotels or you can always use bleachers. To complete this workout run up the stairs alternating between running every step and every other step. For example the first time I run up I would hit every step, the second time up I’ll skip a step hitting only every other step. This will help achieve maximum booty lift. You can jog or walk on the way down for recovery. Do this workout for 20-30 minutes and you have yourself an amazing fat burning, butt shaping workout!

2) My favorite exercise that will sculpt your booty and torch calories is jumping lunges. Jumping lunges are great because you are getting a cardiovascular workout while at the same time you are doing resistance training. In order to perform jumping lunges, start in lunge position then jump up and switch legs landing back in lunge position with your opposite foot forward. Try for twenty repetitions at a time, then rest and repeat up to 10 times. You can also increase the difficulty and butt shaping potential by holding a weighted medicine ball above your head during this exercise.

3) Another great fat burning, backside building workout I would recommend is incline running. The best way to do this is to set a treadmill to 12-15% incline and alternate between running and walking. I prefer to do 1 minute of walking alternating with 1 minute of running for 20 minutes. If you have hills nearby you could also get the same benefits by performing hill repeats. Pick the steepest (with in reason) hill and sprint/run up then walk back down for recovery.

If you include these three workouts into your exercise routine you are on your way to burning fat and building a shapely backside!

Even though these supplements are very helpful in weight loss, they cannot in themselves make you lose so much fat in that short amount of time. In order to lose 30 pounds, you need a proper diet and exercise program. The supplements will help you speed up your metabolism but you will need to put in some effort to burn off the calories by dieting and exercising.

Dieting – For fast weight loss, try to eliminate fatty foods from your diet. If you have to fry foods, use olive oil instead of vegetable oils. Also, start to eat a lot more fruits and vegetables and go for whole wheat and whole grain products instead of white flour alternatives. Another thing you can do is to reduce your sugar intake as too much sugar will increase you blood sugar level making it more difficult to lose the fat.

Exercises – If it is possible, you should enroll in a gym. However if you don’t have access to a gym, try to wake up early in the mornings and do at least 30 minutes of walking or jogging around your neighborhood. Once your are done you must stretch your muscles to prevent muscles cramps.

You Can Heal Your Body From Hypothyroidism Naturally!

Over five million Americans have it, and it is estimated that over ten percent of women suffer from it. While the disease is very common, it also has harsh side effects. The disease basically means that you have a sluggish thyroid, which keeps your body from metabolizing properly. The most common symptom among people who have hypothyroidism is that they constantly feel tired or sluggish. Other symptoms of the disease include hair loss, weight gain, increased difficulty losing weight, brittle hair, hair loss, dry skin, an inability to tolerate the cold, frequent muscle aches, constipation, depression, abnormal menstrual cycles and a decreased libido.

The good news is that you can actually help boost your energy naturally by getting a better lifestyle. By doing this, you will feel more healthy overall and you will even lose weight! If you have a good lifestyle, your body will be healthy and well maintained, and you will recover from illness more quickly, weigh less, respond to stress better, and just feel better overall. The first thing that you can do to help your hypothyroidism is to change your diet.

Most typical American diets consist of many highly processed foods and not nearly enough fruits and vegetables. Although many things can contribute to the onset of hypothyroidism, many people hypothesize that an overload of toxicity within the body is a major cause of the disease. But you can cleanse your body by simply changing your diet. First of all, avoid iodized salt. Instead, use Celtic salt, Japanese salt, or a good quality sea salt. Next, it will help if you eat more things with coconut in them. It does not matter whether you eat the nut meat, oil, or milk, all of these will have the same positive effect on your body. Also, eat more fish will increase healthy fatty acid needed by the body.

But the most important thing that you can do to help your body naturally heal itself from hypothyroidism is to eat more green vegetables and fresh fruits! There are a few vegetables in the cabbage family that will actually worsen your hypothyroidism. These include brussels sprouts, broccoli, cabbage, kale, mustard greens and spinach. You can still eat these, just make sure that you eat it moderation. Vegetables that will combat hypothyroidism include leafy greens, alfalfa, carrots, green peppers, watercress, beets, celery, parsley, sprouts, and seaweed.

Since it is sometimes hard to consume so many fruits and vegetables in one day, a wonderful option is to juice the fruits and vegetables. Juicing gives you all the vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that are in the fruits and vegetables without filling you up as fast. For example, it takes a whole bag of carrots to make one glass of carrot juice. Delicious and healthy juices you can add to your diet can be made of any blend of apples, cranberries, alfalfa, apricots, grapefruits, pineapple, kelp, grapes, celery, carrots, or grapes.

Finally, be sure to avoid as many processed and refined foods as you can. Avoid antihistamines, chlorine faucet water, fluoride, and iodine. People who switch to this diet find that their cholesterol plummets and that they lose a ton of weight! Although it can initially be a hard adjustment, most people find that in the long run, it is well worth it. They look and feel so much better, and they can even wear jeans that they fit into way back in college!

Herbal Remedies For Constipation – 3 Herbal Remedies That Can Help End Your Constipation

You are hardly limited when it comes to herbal remedies for constipation; you will find that there is really a long list of herbal remedies for hard stools. Many herbal treatments are amazingly effective and provide super fast relief for your constipation issues too. Three common herbs for hard stool treatment include:

  • Alfalfa
  • Calendula
  • Lemon Balm

Alfalfa

Alfalfa is a wonderful herb loaded with Vitamin K. The latter vitamin promotes the production of healthy bacteria inside the intestinal tract that help in breaking foods down so that they can be more readily assimilated. This herb also has a high level of chlorophyll which helps boost the immune system and promotes faster healing. What is really nice about this herbal treatment is that it is loaded with all natural fiber: a common remedy for constipation. What’s more, this herb has anti-inflammatory agents which can help to sooth irritated intestinal tissues. Finally, Alfalfa is also an herb that is filled with a number of vitamins that offer antioxidants which help in destroying cancer-causing free radicals in the body too.

Calendula

Calendula, also identified under the common name Marigold, has been a long revered constipation treatment. A tincture made from this herb can be stirred into a cup of water and consumed three times daily for constipation relief. Calendula is also wonderful as a tea and works well in soothing issues related to stomach ailments. A single teaspoon of dried Calendula leaves can be steeped in hot water for a few minutes and consumed for hard stool relief. As a natural anti-inflammatory, this herb can be safely consumed in order to alleviate irritated tissues in the digestive tract too.

Lemon Balm

If you are having constipation and cramping, you can take Lemon Balm to alleviate the cramping; this herb is an all natural antispasmodic herbal treatment. Lemon Balm has been used for many years to treat issues with gas, flatulence, bloating, and abdominal cramping and it helps to naturally relax the digestive tract. This herb can be easily consumed as a tea by steeping some leaves in a hot cup of water.

How To Recover After A Skateboarding Session

If you’re like me, you love to skate. A two to three hour session at your local park isn’t uncommon, and it leaves you feeling amazing. People skate for all types of reasons, but it goes without saying that the health benefits you stand to gain from skateboarding like feeling amazing after exercise, and the challenge and rewards available make us keep wanting more. The problem I face, and a lot of other skaters face is the soreness and aching after a session. This can be especially apparent the next day. Some skaters deal with it differently than others. Some people seem immune to the pain and can wake up every day and go skate like crazy, no matter how beat up they got the day before. For the rest of us, here are some solid tips to getting the most out of your skate sessions without feeling beat up the next day.

Skate more often: It may seem counterintuitive at first, but skateboarding is like any physical activity. If you don’t do it for a while then your body has a harder time getting used to the abuse. Some people live in a climate that is cold and rainy during the winter, so they stop skating for a few months until it gets warm again. Then come spring time their body isn’t used to all the banging around and goes through a phase of soreness for a while before it can adapt itself again. If you ride your skateboard more often, your body will stay adapted to the abuse, and it won’t hurt as much after a session. This doesn’t mean going out every day to jump down a 20 stair because you’ll get better at it. This kind of abuse can lead to serious injuries, but if you skate a little bit every day, and work on progressing through your learning curves while maintaining a positive attitude, you will have a better time and get more enjoyment out of it.

Stretching before and after your sessions: It’s easy to get in a couple of toe touches and butterflies just after you start skating hard, and just after you stop skating. In fact, if you don’t make time for stretching, you will have to make time for injuries and soreness later on. Pro skaters do it all the time. They have to compete, film, and jump down huge things all the time to make money, so they learn from the best physical trainers in the world. Those physical trainers will teach you first that in order to avoid injuries while working out, you must learn to stretch. If you haven’t stretched much recently, it’s OK. Start now, and take it slow. Stretch in the morning when you wake up, in the afternoon, just after you get warmed up skating and just after your skate sesh, then stretch again before bed. This much stretching throughout the day will make your body loose and limber, and will help blood and oxygen flow through your muscles and joints, repairing them faster. It’s also a great idea to stretch your upper body like your neck, back and arms.

Doing a warm-down: Just as warming-up is important in skating to ensure you don’t fall when you first start skating, warming-down is important to ensure your muscles have a moment to decompress. To do a warm-down, do some light walking. I usually walk around the skate park after I’m done skating. This can be combined with filming your friends or taking pictures if you’re a photographer. It will help get the blood flowing to your joints for some added recovery.

Eat or drink lots of protein after a sesh: I read lots of blogs and forums about people looking for the best recovery methods, and this one is the same throughout. You must eat or drink lots of protein, 30-50 grams, immediately following a workout, along with coconut water or Gatorade. Your body needs the protein to rebuild the muscle, and the energy drink will replenish glycogen levels and raise insulin levels. Insulin can help restore muscle proteins by inhibiting protein breakdown and stimulating protein synthesis. Since I am vegan, I recommend a plant-based protein shake. You can find these at your local sprouts, whole foods, or online at Amazon.com. Granted, they aren’t cheap, but if you really don’t want to feel as sore after a skate session, they might be worth a try. Also, eating or drinking potassium rich substances after a workout will help replenish spent reserves. Coconut water has lots of potassium in it, making it an excellent post workout drink. I get mine at the local 99 cents store to save money. Make sure to get the one without any added sugar. Your body also needs things like sodium and calcium to refuel muscle energy. Bananas and sweet potatoes are great sources of potassium, sodium and calcium. Add these to your post-skate session meals and you’ll feel better in no time. Also, grapes and cherries have antioxidants in them that help your body relieve soreness in your joints. Another tip is to take fish oil or flax seed oil pills. The omega-3, 6 and 9 do wonders for lubricating your joints.

Get better sleep: Sleep is essential to rebuilding muscles, joints and tendons. If you stay up late partying or watching TV after skate sessions, you won’t get the benefits that sleep offers. To make the most out of your Z’s, get at least 8-9 hours of sleep every night. If you’re like me and have trouble falling asleep, you can try to take an herbal supplement like melatonin or valerian root (I found a supplement called ‘relax & sleep’ at my local Dollar Tree). Drinking a hot cup of chamomile tea will also help. Additionally, committing yourself to a ‘technology-blackout’ after 9 pm every night will help you get to bed easier. Whatever it takes, get the sleep you need to recoup and you’ll be able to skate every day at to your fullest potential!

Reduce stress: Acute stress, like the type you get from exercising, is good for you. Chronic stress, like when you don’t get enough sleep, or when you have a paper due at school, is not good for you. To recover completely from your skate sessions in the fastest way possible, make time to do stress-relieving exercises like short hikes, hanging out with friends, and riding a bicycle. These are all things known as active-recovery, and can go a long ways in helping you recover mentally from a hard skate session. Getting social with good friends and laughing are the best ways to relieve stress.

Ice, then take a hot bath: Icing your ankles after a skate session for 10-15 minutes, then bathing in hot water will relax your muscles and make it easier for them to recover the next day. The icing reduces swelling that might happen if you landed on your ankles really hard, and the hot water relieves the tension in your muscles making it easier for blood to move through them. Combined with an after workout stretch, icing and a hot bath can be an excellent way to recover after a skate session.

Body weight squats: Doing proper body weight squats during the day and between skate session will strengthen the connective tissue around your joints, and in effect you’ll have more stability around the joints in your ankles, hips and pelvis. First you’ll want to learn how to do proper body weight squats.

I hope these tips help you have more fun with skateboarding. No doubt it can be very painful at times, but it’s overcoming our personal challenges and getting the reward of rolling away from a trick that make it all worth it. I love skateboarding, and I’m sure you do to. That’s why if it was up to me, I would skate all day every day. However, as we age our bodies don’t recover as quickly, but if you take these 5 tips to heart, maybe your recoveries will be faster, and you’ll be out skating again in no time!

Classical Conditioning: The Secret Behind Exercise Motivation

We all know how hard it can be sometimes to get off the couch and exercise.

Even the least creative of minds can come up with some excuse to avoid going for a run. Procrastination is a huge issue in fitness. But many people don’t realize how easy it can be to motivate yourself to go for a run.

What if you could trick your mind into thinking it actually wanted to exercise?

Using simple psychology, you can turn your mind into your very own personal trainer! For free.

Your mind used to be your biggest barrier to exercise – your body craved a run, but you talked yourself out of it. Now your mind can be your biggest motivator. How?

Classical conditioning.

Step one is to make a plan. Before you can even start to use psychological conditioning, you need to create a tangible workout schedule. Start with small, attainable goals – such as going for a run every other evening for a week.

You need to write your plan out as a list – and put it somewhere you’ll see every day. This constant reminder that you should be exercising is important to the concept of classical conditioning which we will try to implement into your exercise routine.

Next it’s time to apply the psychological phenomenon of classical conditioning.

Classical conditioning is a term given to the psychological effect of stimulus association. Perhaps you’ve heard of Pavlov’s dogs – who came to associate food with the sound of a bell, and eventually salivated merely at the bell. Classical conditioning requires a neutral stimulus to gradually become closely associated with a stimulus which causes some sort of reflex in the subject. Eventually the boundary between the stimuli will become blurred in the mind. The ultimate goal of classical conditioning is to transfer the reflex from the second stimulus to the first (previously neutral) stimulus.

So what’s the neutral stimulus in your exercise plan?

The act of going for a run.

In order to achieve effective motivation through classical conditioning, you need to find a stimulus – which already causes a reaction from you – and begin associating it with the act of exercise.

For example: your favourite song. Go cold turkey on listening to your favourite song – unless you are exercising. Make sure that you do not hear the song at any other time. Look forward to listening to it while you run!

After a while, the same feelings you get NOW when you hear your favourite song will be associated with the act of exercise.

To run will be a treat – whether or not you listen to the song.

Although the stimulus of music is ideal for this sort of conditioning – because it is easy to control, and easy to associate with physical activity – you CAN experiment with other types of stimuli as well!

Maybe you have a favourite shirt that would be appropriate to run in. Maybe you can drink your favourite energy drink on your run.

Keep in mind that stimuli which are associated with physical activity WHILE you are completing the activity are the most effective. The more intense the connection with the actual activity, the more effective the classical conditioning will be. And, ultimately, the more you will love exercising!

Finally, realize that lack of motivation to exercise is something that everyone experiences.

But now you’re one of the few who know the secret to overcoming exercise procrastination.

And you can beat this laziness!

Now get out there and go for a run!

Indian Wrestling Exercises

Sirsasana

Sirsasana (Shirsasana or Sirshasa) is a yoga asana (or posture) in which the body is completely inverted, and held upright supported by the crown of the head and the forearms. It is known as the king of yoga asanas.

Like all inserted positions, the practice of sirsasana increases the flow of blood to the brain, improving memory and other intellect functions. It rejuvenates the body and mind and regulates the flow of energy (prana) in the body.

Dands (Hindu press ups)

Hindi press ups are a form of exercise prevalent in Indian physical culture and Indian martial arts, particularly Pehlwani. Hindu squats are called Uthak-bethak and the exercise regimen in Indian wrestling often consist of doing the Indian jack knifing push-ups, Indian club swinging and Hindu squats. [3] The Hindu jacknifing push ups are part of the core exercises for building up of strength, stamina, and flexibility of joints. [4] The dand was also a part of the exercise regimen of Bruce Lee. [5]

The simple set of exercises of dand-baithak (press up and squats) practiced in the villages of India has a beneficial effect on the spine. It takes off the strain from the spell and makes it fit to fight the other strains on the spine caused by the adoption of an erect posture.

Hindu Squats

The hindu squat or Uthak-bethak (Hindi: Standing and sitting) is an Indian calisthenic bodyweight exercise used by Indian wrestlers and other athletes to build leg endurance and strength.

Unlike a normal squat, the boots are elevated, shifting the knees far forward. This places more stress than usual upon the knee ligaments, which some trainers feel may be harmful to them especially with the explosive nature of the exercise. Others believe that squats done this way actually strengthen the knee joint. Due to the elevated heaters, the calf muscles are much more heavily recruited. Heavy weight should not be added in this exercise due to the lack of stability and non-linear path of motion for most weights, as well as the fact that it further exacerbates the knee stresses. To compensate for this lack of resistance, Hindu squats are normally done in very high repetitions. Some experts recommend one-legged Hindus as a more advanced version of the exercise (Ross Enamait), although other advocates of Hindu squats will only perform flat-footed squats.

Salute to the Sun

Surya Namaskara (IAST: Sryrya namaskāra) (lit. "salute to the sun"), is a common sequence of Hatha yoga asanas. Its origins lie in a worship of Surya, the Hindu solar deity. This sequence of movements and poses can be practiced on varying levels of awareness, ranging from that of physical exercise in various styles, to a complete sadhana which incorporates asana, pranayama, mantra and chakra meditation.

The physical base of the practice links together twelve asanas in a dynamically performed series. These asanas are ordered so that they alternately stretch the spine backwards and forwards. When performed in the usual way, each asana is moved into alternate inhalation and exhalation (except for the sixth asana where the breath is held in external suspension). A full round of Surya namaskara is considered to be two sets of the twelve poses with a change in the second set to moving the opposition leg first through the series.

Proponents of the use of Surya namaskara as part of the modern yoga tradition prefer to perform it at sunrise, which the orthodox consider to be the most 'spiritually favurable' time of the day.
