Bham Now

Ok, I’ve got to admit it.  Last week was the first time in my 30 years of living in Birmingham that I walked through the doors of the  Upsidedown Plaza,  the Magic City’s legendary dive bar.

On the road with Gerald Dickens

  On Saturday I found myself on a village green watching a cricket match.  I had not planned to watch it, I just happened to be there and soon became wrapped up in the great contest.  I did not know the teams involved, but after a short while spectating the various characters of the players […]

Life is all about going through upwards and downwards Journey in order to pursue our dreams. Don’t let any kinds of obstacle and failure push you against your success in life. Just keep moving forward with hope Fight hard the battle of life. And take the challenges with courage, determination and that day is not so far to a successful human being. Here we offering some of the best Life inspirational messages from a various reliable source that will be your best supporter to pursue your dreams of life. Important Message about Life Inspiration The secret to success is consistency. Stick to your purpose and work hard. Otherwise, success is just a dream. Image: Google Safe Search Sometimes, somewhere in life, we fail and get hurt but there’s always someone behind who would aspire us to outshine ourselves by making efforts and Hard Work. They are the reason why we stand up again and learn to fix our wounds. They are our inspiration in life, our strength to reach success and our motivator. Peoples who live in this world are just like a feather that moves in the direction of the wind. I am no exception to those people used to ask me, “What is your main purpose of life”, but I used to get confused with career and purpose. I did not know there was a huge difference between both. Purpose of life gives a new taste in living exploring new things. It gave me a new meaning to living life. I just needed something to associate and to hold my life and make it a bit easy so I realized that my purpose of life was to solve other problems. Image: Google Safe Search From that day I started moving around the globe meeting different people and solving their problems.  Unless you bring your body and soul together into whatever you do you cannot be perfect. I was interviewed recently by a Jerman online travel magazine. The reporter asked me a couple of interesting questions. One was about what inspires me to cook. So, I replied the Reporter: “Travel, restaurants, roaming around supermarkets, markets, and so on Inspire me to Cook.” Image: Google Advance Image Search Actually, when we see someone who is doing well in her profession, we feel nice and think about it why I am not? After seeing a chief making something like “Cucumber raita recipe” (my favorite one), we get inspired to make this at home for our family. Just noticed these little things, every point can be inspired us. Only things we have to make our vision clear. But other possibilities came up. Movies can definitely inspire – who doesn’t want to eat while watching Movies and that thing Inspire Me to make Something Delicious. Books can too – I can’t read things like The Pickwick Papers or the Anne of Green Gables series without Popcorn and Coffee or something. How Technology Inspire Us in Life Artificial intelligence machines can act as your friends that help you stay healthy. And they can even interact with you. Such Artificial intelligence machines have touch sensors that can feel changes in force. For each person running on the running machine and adjusts to the most comfortable in real-time. Which could help to stay Fit. “Good health as well as eat lightly, breathe deeply, live moderately, cultivate cheerfulness, and maintain an interest in life.” If Technology used smartly, it pushes us to new achievements. It could help us to become fitter and more intelligent. Smart technology can help to-do with everyday tasks leaving more space for creativity. Like a few years ago, if e deleted some word document from the computer, then we face very much difficult to recover. But now it’s easy to recover unsaved word document from windows or mac. So, isn’t it helps us to inspire to work harder? Let us not think that Inspiring through some things leads us towards achieving something. Instead, let us think that it is a way on how we are serious to reach our goals in life. Let’s be inspired by peoples and things around us. And care about who truly loves and supports us all the ways we take in life. There are lots of things which can provide us inspiration and help us to stay strong and provide guidance for a better life. I hope you will find the strength and ability to restart with new power by reading these inspirational messages about life. You may share these life messages with your family, friends and loved one for gaining a little perspective on their life.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) – Fears about flesh-eating bacteria around Pickwick Lake have boaters worried about getting in the water. Last week, a kayaker came down with a serious infection after being in the water near Waterloo, Alabama. And a Memphis Man died after swimming in the Gulf. Despite the recent incidents, one Memphis doctor says don’t panic. The man from Alabama who kayaked at Pickwick and the Memphis man who died after swimming in the Gulf in Destin both had two different types of bacterial infections, and both types are commonly referred to as flesh-eating bacteria, though the name is deceiving. “There is no such thing as the flesh-eating bacteria. Flesh-eating bacteria is a term that applies to the medical term, is necrotizing fasciitis, and that’s just a very severe infection of the skin and soft tissue,” said infectious disease specialist Dr. Stephen Threlkeld. Bacteria called Vibrio, which is known to live in warm seawater, is what infected the Memphis man. The Alabama kayaker was in freshwater, his wife said his was a streptococcus infection, which is common bacteria that is everywhere. “It can happen to anybody really at any time, and not necessarily related to going to the lake or the ocean or anything like that,” said Dr. Threlkeld. Dr. Threlkeld said yes, during warm summer months, lakes and rivers likely have larger bacterial loads of organisms, but he says there is no connection between swimming and catching an infection. “Statistically speaking, it doesn’t happen to many people. When it does happen, it’s very severe and it gets our attention as it should,” said Dr. Threlkeld. He says infections are most often  associated with open wounds or people with a compromised immune system. “It can be small wounds. It can enter thru small wounds we can’t even see,” he said. Dr. Threlkeld says the bottom line; don’t cancel your trip to the lake this weekend. Statistically you are more likely to get in a car accident driving to the lake than you are getting an infection while swimming in one.
