Go Green At Work


There are an endless number of ways on how to go green at our workplace. I'm going to share a few below and these probably won't even require much of your efforts.

                                  
1. Recycle: 
A majority of us are lazy when it comes to recycling, but it's irresponsible to avoid doing something can
that can save us energy, space, water, and conserves resources. It's important that we educate ourselves on what are the things that can be recycled and then actually do it. A large number of items such as paper, plastics, bottles, cans, ink cartridges be easily recycled.

2. Carpool/Bike/Walk to work: 
Transportation accounts 
for a majority of all greenhouse gas emissions. Teaming up with co-workers who live nearby and carpool a few times a week could make a big difference. Alternatively, if your workplace is within walking distance, you could switch to riding a bicycle to work or perhaps even walk.

Go green
3. Go paperless: You don't really need to print much these days. Switch to paperless meetings, or try and print on both sides to waste less as this would save 50% of your paper costs. Instead of printing important files and documents, share them on cloud. Use e-mails instead of paper for means of communication. While we still do need paper, try to choose environment-friendly recycled paper, and try avoiding chlorine-bleached ones and choose papers with high amount of post-consumer content.

Go green
4. Power Down: Our devices consume tons of power, even when we are not using them. Majority of office power is consumed by devices that are off, but still plugged into a live outlet. Make sure to shut down your computers before you leave for the day; setting them to standby will continue to draw power even when not in use. Lower your screen brightness and eliminate screensavers from your systems. Switch your computer to energy-saving settings. Connect printers, scanners, and other peripherals to a smart power strip where the whole setup can be switched off at once when not in use.

Go green
5. Greenery: Add a plant to your desk and encourage your colleagues to do the same. Plants absorb airborne pollutants and increase the flow of oxygen. Adding a plant will not only help you breathe in cleaner air, but it will also create a more comfortable environment for you to work in.

Share these tips with your colleagues and encourage and motivate them to start recycling around the office. Go Green Today!

How to Treat Symptoms of Heartburn

Heartburn, or acid indigestion, is a burning sensation mid chest that worsens when you bend over or lay down. It usually occurs after eating and at night. It is caused by reflux. Reflux occurs when the acid in your stomach backs up into your food pipe (esophagus), resulting in inflammation. It is considered a disease when you have symptoms more than 2 times a week. 
Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) is a condition of digestion that allows stomach acid to go up the esophagus due to a weakening of the muscle at the point where the esophagus ends and your stomach begins. GERD often interferes with routine daily activities, and result in damage to your esophagus. 
Symptoms include heartburn, vomiting or spitting up blood, bitter taste in your mouth, burning sensation in your chest pain, dry cough, painful throat, painful swallowing, and a hoarse voice. 
Complications from GERD include scarring of the esophagus, bleeding in stomach or esophagus, and ulcer formation in the esophagus o…

Tiger Safari at Ranthambhore

Situated in the State of Rajasthan in Western India it is home of the wild tigers, the majestic mammals, and birds. The destination was a hunting reserve of the erstwhile Maharajahs of Jaipur. Old monuments like a fort or a hunting lodge, temples and huge reservoirs built during the heydays of the Rajput kings can be seen on the game rides. Some of these are in a preserved state while many are in a state of absolute decline. 
Tigers rule over the ramparts of the fort and other hunting pavilions some of them also breed in the vacated buildings and flourish. At Ranthambhore hunting is banned as also all over the country. Hence tigers a breeding well and their population is on the rise.

A small portion of the reserve is open for tourism which is divided into many zones. This is where the safari jeeps ply ferrying eager tourists keen on sighting the tiger and other animals. These safaris are organized and a permit is required for excursions. Mainly open jeeps and canters are allowed to e…
