My Day at #Pittsburgh’s Kennywood Amusement Park #Review @Kenny_Kangaroo

I received complimentary tickets for the purpose of this review. All opinions are 100% my own.

     Can you say that you literally have an amusement park in your back yard? I can say that I was lucky enough to have this. I could walk out my yard and look down the street and see the park. It was not until I was older that I realized just how lucky I was. Kennywood Amusement Park will always hold a special place in my and my families heart as that is where my Mom met my Dad. My Mom and I both worked at the same concession stand- Not at the same time of course and where my church always had their summer picnics- Russian Day.

     As I enter the park a feeling of excitement comes over me. Whether it was because of all the memories the park holds for me or that I am about to ride my favorite rides or even all of my favorite foods that are just a fingertip away, I am sure to do it it all! I mean the Noah’s Ark squishy tongue that I member from days of long ago is BACK! Yes, Just what I said because they restored it back to the way it was with even the squishy tongue. The awesome roller coasters are still the same from my favorite-the Thunderbolt, The Racer, The Steel Phantom to the Jack rabbit and even a few more. I love them all! From the Merry-Go-Round to the Train. Then you have to mention kiddy land and the other more normal, thriller, exiting wonderful rides such as the Turtle, Barron’s Curve, Music Express and The Pirate and many more. I was thrilled to see the the wonderful potato patch fries are sold at a few other concession stands throughout the park. The lines could could really get way too long when they were only sold at the original potato path stand. My sister-in-law and brother-in-law to my surprise bought us lunch at Johnny Rockets. Which I must say I had the best Cheeseburger I have ever had. Thank you Lisa and Drew!

I received the below mentioned complimentary product for the purpose of this review. All opinions are 100% my own.

     Do you take a cold drink with you whether it be in the car, while riding your bike or just even taking a run? I never ever thought I would do this but that was until I was diagnosed with several diagnoses where I needed to stay hydrated. This was why I was thrilled when the opportunity can about to review the MIU COLOR water bottle.13428355_630725873757483_8450534213386379883_n

     We always take a reusable water bottle with us and have many of them in my kitchen cabinets but the MIU COLOR water bottle is like non other that I own. I was very impressed with the sleek design of the bottle and that it came with it’s own sponge cleaning bottle brush.

Some things I want to share with out about the MIU COLOR water bottle are:

MIU COLOR is based on the theme of slow life, simple, environmentally friendly, comfortable daily necessities for consumers everywhere, focusing on the development and extension of the day-to-day supplies, products ranging from home, office, travel, to clothing

MIU COLOR BOTTLE- A Choice for Drinking, A Surprise for Life
MIU COLOR Glass Water Bottle make your drink just tough glass and stainless steel, No BPA, PVC, Plastic, Lead and toxic chemical. More healthy than you think.

Note:
•All of MIU COLOR Glass Water Bottle are handmade, so it is normal if the bottles have a little different.
•There is Odor?
You could take out the rubber ring from the cap, and soak it in vinegar or tea water for 2-3 hours, then wash it clean. The odor will go away.

     I never knew that about what to do if there is an odor after so many uses.

World Health Organization on Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity

According to the World Health Organization(WHO), people with unexplained, recurring dizziness, headaches, and skin irritation might be suffering from electromagnetic hypersensitivity(EHS).People with this condition feel sick when they are around sources of electromagnetic waves.

Recently, the Daily Mirror ran a story of a 15-year-old teenage girl in the U.K who committed suicide because of the severe discomfort she felt in school because of what is suspected to be EHS. The teen’s mother said that her daughter had suffered from an allergy to Wi-Fi signals before her death. She felt extremely nauseated by the Wi-Fi signal in her school and was unable to concentrate.

Research shows that most people claiming to be suffering from EHS experienced symptoms such as fatigue and headache that occurred when they were close to devices that emit electromagnetic signals. These signals include computer screens, cell phones, and Wi-Fi stations. The symptoms often disappear or become less severe as they move away from the devices emitting electromagnetic signals. However, research findings indicate that participants who were unknowingly exposed to EHS signals did not show any reactions.

What about the symptoms?
Experts say that people who claim to have EHS are definitely ill, but electromagnetic waves are not the cause of the sickness. Even though the WHO states that people suffering from EHS display ‘various non-specific symptoms’, it also state that EHS is not a scientific diagnosis. According to the WHO websites, there is no clear link between EHS symptoms and exposure to electromagnetic waves.

EHS symptoms often vary between patients and are not usually helpful in linking to the trigger. This makes it more difficult for doctors to diagnose and treat the symptoms.

Determining disability
Patients also report that the EHS symptoms make them physically weak and drastically change their lives. According to courthousenews.com, parents of a 12-year-old boy in Massachusetts suspect that their child has EHS. According to the parents, a new industrial capacity Wi-Fi system in the son’s school was the cause of his health issues. The boy suffered from the same symptoms that other EHS victims have reported to experience. The symptoms arose only during school hours and doctors could not diagnose the boy’s condition. Although the school administration rejected the parent’s claim, the boy’s parents still hold on to their assertion that their son was affected by the Wi-Fi system and that that the school was responsible.

Testing reactions
A 2009 medical journal reported that more than 1000 people in the U.S. believed they were suffering from EHS. However, little research has been done to prove the existence of EHS. Many professionals in the medical field believe that what many people allege to be the symptoms of EHS could just be their bodies’ reaction to various environmental factors that are not related to electromagnetic waves.

The Legality and Etiquette of Vaping in Public

If you’re an e-cigarette user, how do you know where it’s okay to vape? If you’re complying with local laws, are you free to use your vaporizer in any circumstance? Every truly innovative product will have a dramatic affect socially. Think about the way the cell phone had to have boundaries defined for its use in social situations. Vaping has to find its way too.

International Laws

While traveling, you’ll find the laws vary drastically from country to country, each regulating e-cigarettes in very different ways. For instance, most European countries allow the sale and use of these vaporizers, but Brazil, Singapore, and Uruguay have gone so far as to completely ban them. Canada’s laws technically prohibit the sale and use of e-cigarettes, but the law is not enforced, and they are sold and smoked widely throughout the country.

Domestic Regulations

Though legal in the United States, there has been some debate about whether e-cigarettes are a drug delivery system or a tobacco product. Currently, the government is leaving regulation of vaping to states, counties and cities, so you may find the laws very different just a mile from home.

Fortunately, there is a consistent trend throughout the nation. Almost all states have banned the sale of electronic cigarettes to minors, and you can pretty much bet that there is probably some type of restriction on indoor use wherever you are.

Presently, vaping is not allowed on airlines and in most bars and restaurants as the bulk of city and state legislation forbids the use of electronic cigarettes in enclosed workplaces. It’s unfortunate that if unfamiliar with a locale, the e-cigarette consumer may find themselves vaping in ordinary smoking areas.

Polite Usage

Though vaping is legal wherever the law allows, considerate usage should be observed. A good rule of thumb is simply to ask before using your vaporizer. Even before regular cigarettes were proven to be harmful, conscientious folks always asked, “Do you mind if I smoke?” If you find yourself in a bar where it’s allowed, be courteous and ask those next to you. If someone is eating nearby, it’s best to wait until they have finished.

Obviously, vaping in tight spaces like elevators isn’t cool, and it’s always wise to give children a wide berth. If there are no restrictions on vaping at work, be polite and don’t do it in open office areas.

Familiarity

Although there is little to indicate that vaping is emitting anything harmful, people still may not feel comfortable being around it. Just be gracious and remember it isn’t your job to inform them how innocuous it is. As the custom grows, the misconceptions about the practice will change.

Clouds

Blowing clouds is fun, but doing this in public spaces might give the wrong impression about e-cigarettes. No one wants to encourage more prejudice that might sway people to vote for more stringent regulations. In public places, hold the vapor in longer and exhale downward to decrease the chance of big clouds.

Still In Flux

E-cigarettes are a relatively new idea, and regulations and attitudes to the practice are still evolving. It is necessary to keep an eye on legislation that may affect where you can vape. If you feel strongly about current or proposed laws, vote and canvas for a kinder stance towards e-cigarette usage. That said, people are going to be more favorably disposed to the practice if it feels like a non-threatening activity, so do your best to show vaping in its best light.
