Could Sling TV Mean the end of Cable? 29/04/2018

By Mary Thompson -

What if binge-watching isn't your thing?
As crazy as it sounds tuning into complete seasons of shows with little to no commercials isn't everyone's cup of tea. Sure it's ok every once in a while perhaps when the series is new and exciting, but to do this on a regular basis can only best be described as tiresome. Since, after a while, anything can get old and predictable.


Nothing takes the form of predictability more than being able to mimic pages of dialogue from every single episode.  


With that being said sometimes more traditional forms of television is what viewers are in the mood for.  Such as advertisements and not knowing exactly what episode is going to come up next.


Is it at all possible to get all the benefits of cable without the ever-increasing price tags?

Is Borage Oil Nature’s Secret to Beautiful Skin? 03/02/2018

By Mary Thompson - 

 
Expensive creams and serums a good investment or high cost money pits?
Investing hundreds sometimes thousands of dollars has sadly become an inescapable part of getting older which so many individuals have come to accept. After all as they say beauty takes pain and apparently a good chunk of your bank account too.
 
But what if this wasn't necessarily true? Or a gross waste of time money and exaggerations.
Could we have been seduced to invest in nothing by pretty containers with fancy with a mere few ounces of creams and serums?
 
What if there was a not only a natural, but an astoundingly more effective alternative?
Wouldn't it be refreshing to find out that the real secret to beauty wasn't in an expensive facial treatment which at times could amount to a small fortune? Could so many of us who have sought out that magical substance may actually get the chance to break ground?
Yes it's true, all because of an ingredient loaded in GLA (gamma-linolenic acid) and omega – 6 fatty acids. This secret weapon is none other than borage oil. Once again here's another natural ingredient that's been around forever, but just now getting recognition.
 
What are the benefits behind this otherwise unassuming supplement?
Not only is borage oil the secret to clearing some of the most common skin disorders such as eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis, but it can also encourage the growth of healthy hair. Clearly, a beauty secret in the form of gel pills which at the most can cost just $10 or a bit more. Certainly, a far cry for hundred dollar creams and serums.
 
Most tend to forget that beauty on the outside starts from within
Stress from the outside brought upon by menstrual cycles, menopause, and illness such as arthritis can affect not only the bodies' inner composition, but its outward appearance as well. Not only will borage oil make you look younger longer, but its key ingredients possess anti-inflammatory effects. Which is a key component to the prevention of these illnesses which used to be an unavoidable part of life.
 
Surely this sounds a lot less risky than a lifetime of prescription drugs...
Without a doubt one of the reasons so many people turn to prescription drugs when in pain are the rapid effects of numbing the pain.
 
Finally some relief right?
That would be great if pain relief was the only thing which resulted from the ingestion of prescription drugs. However, it's hard to ignore the negative side effects of these medications which at the most will only be able to achieve temporary recoveries.
When it comes to the negative side effective result from this prescription medications well let's just say they are far from temporary. On the contrary, their potent ingredients can lead users to develop a life time of addiction to illegal narcotics which when medications run dry, but the urge to get a fix is still there.
 
Just when it couldn't get any better weight loss gets added to the list
Unlike most supplements claiming to promote weight loss, borage oil actually works for the main reason that its claims aren't outlandish. In fact the proof is in the pudding literally.
One of the main components of GLA has been proven to not only increase metabolism, but suppress hunger as well. However, because of Borage oil's potent ingredients most users report experiences a strong almost floral after taste this however fades within a matter of minutes.
Weird flavors sure are a small price to pay when compared to rapid heartbeat, liver damage and sometimes death.
 
Are there any risks to the utilizing borage oil?
Nothing too serious just a few mild cases of indigestion. Surely this sounds a lot more palatable than the high probability of drug addiction?
Avoiding these side effects is hardly rocket sciences. All that's needed it limit dosages to only 3,000 milligrams per day.  
The chances of any of these adverse reactions happening is slim to none give that all capsules are clearly label no to exceed dosage size.
 
Too good to be true...
Quite the opposite in fact, brilliant but all true. Perhaps achieving beauty may not require a lot of pain or money after all?

Who would have thought?

Oscars 2018 - Academy Awards Predictions 22/01/2018

By Mary Thompson -

 
Could we expect a night of predictability or one of surprises?
As with any type of programming, the events set to occur are roughly planned out. Such is the case for the Academy Awards. The predictability of what audiences have come to expect is almost routine. Without a doubt, we are bound to be presented with a dazzling showcase of celebrities in beautiful gowns and tailor-made suits.
Fans from across the globe wait with bated breath as their favourite celebrities grace the red carpet with their presence accompanied by escorts such as their spouses, significant others or even parents and children.
For the most part despite the predictability of the pre-show festivities bring an air of excitement into the air. After all, it's impossible to know which A-lister is going to be given the honour of attending, who they'll be with and what they'll be wearing.
 
Most likely winners and maybes
Without a doubt, only the best of the best movies, directors, celebrities and everyone else responsible for making the movie a masterpiece, are lucky enough to snag a nomination. However, there's always going to be one contender whose risen to such esteem that they are no longer recognized as simply being the nominee, but an obvious winner as well.
 
Best Picture
After taking a look at the contenders for one of the greatest honours of the evening. It seems to be a pretty fair prediction that Call Me By Your Name could indeed take home the prize. This decision shouldn't come as a surprise given the high numbers it reached the box office and ever-growing fan base it's established. If this is indeed the case it doesn't look too good for The Post despite the amount of publicity it's generated.
Nevertheless, one fact that can't be denied is, The Post has the great Steven Spielberg on their side. It's impossible to deny the fact that the blockbusters he's created are known for coming away with a bountiful array of awards.
 
At the end of the night, it could indeed be a toss-up.
 
Best Actor
Without a doubt, the race for best actor is clearly going to be neck and neck with competitors such as Tom Hanks, Daniel Day-Lewis and Denzel Washington just to name a few competing for the prize. Nevertheless, word has it another actor whose credentials match theirs may actually come away with the prize, Gary Oldman.
Even though Gary Oldman may be up against a pretty stiff competition it may be the many elements of his portrayal of Winston Churchill in the blockbuster hit Darkest Hour which wins him the award. After all, this movie seems to contain everything Oscar worthy.
 
From the heart-stopping scenes and powerful speeches, which gave Oldman the chance to shine. Clearly, the prize was is in the bag. Unless of course, we're in for a few surprises and the award goes to newcomers such as Daniel Kaluuya.
 
Something which could truly be shocking is if the winner ends up being James Franco given the fact that he now faces allegations of sexual misconduct.
 
Best Actress
This is another category that could be a tough call. An obvious winner would probably be Meryl Streep for her portrayal of Kay Graham in the Post. Given her track record and other A-listers involved in the film. This outcome to indeed be a given.
 
Nevertheless, it's hard to ignore the other actresses she's up against who could get their moment in the spotlight. These ladies are hardly novices to hit movies or high esteem recognition in the film industry. These ladies or everything that echoes everything positive about Hollywood, Kate Winslet, Emma Stone Michelle Williams.
Or perhaps it could go to a newcomer such as Margot Robbie or Jessica Chastain?
 
Best Director
With no official list of contenders being released perhaps making a high chance prediction may be rather difficult.
However, what if that wasn't the case?
 
After all the nominees are up against one of the greats, Steven Spielberg who track record is a plethora of not only nominations but winnings. His very name echoes quality and a hit. Could this turn the tide in favour of The Post? If Spielberg ends up taking the prize this could certainly be a possibility.
 
Predictability is hardly a bad thing
No one can say that the more predictable winners haven't earned the right to steal the show.  However, one thing is clear in recent times Hollywood has truly shown moments which have shocked even the biggest players deep within the industry.
 
There's always a chance that the outcome of the evening may shock everyone.
