Learn some proper e-mail etiquette by reading this article! Email is the foremost method of communication today. And, it is undoubtedly one of the most widely used methods of communication used today next to the telephone, the post office, and the FAX machine. Like every other form of communication, one must use proper etiquette when dealing with other human beings. There are, of course, rules of etiquette which pertain to email, and here they are:
Rule Number One- Do not use all uppercase letters when typing in your email message. USING ALL UPPERCASE LETTERS in an email message is equivalent to shouting at someone in person. This is considered rude in Internet circles. If you want to make a word or words *stand out*, then you should place an asterisk directly before and directly after the word or group of words. Note the example given. This is an effective as well as proper way of emphasizing your thoughts in your email messages. Rule Number Two- Like a letter that is sent via the traditional snail mail method, or words that are said, once it is sent or they are said, they cannot be retrieved. emails are the same way. Therefore, before you send an electronic message, you should re-read it to make sure that you have said exactly the message that you want to express. You should also spell check the entire document in order to omit any possible spelling errors. That, and it never hurts to check your punctuation as well. Remember that your email message reflects on you as a person. If the spelling is poor, or if the grammar is lacking, then it does not make a good impression on the receiver.
Learn the benefits of tea for your health. Tea is the ancient, natural preventative.
During the Tang Dynasty (618-906 AD), tea became China's national drink. In 1644 sailors began bringing packets from the Far East to the United Kingdom. This replaced ale as the national drink of England. Tea bushes arrived in the United States in 1799 and by 1901 Thomas Sullivan of New Your had developed the first tea bag.
Leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant are dried for stability and shelf life. This particular leaf is rich in manganese and potassium and may provide up to 45% of the recommended daily requirement. Blood cholesterol, pressure and clotting all related to coronary function and disease, decreases as tea consumption increases.
Also rich in vitamins C and E, two cups of green tea provides as much nutrition as one cup of orange juice. It is well known that these vitamins plus the beta-carotene also found in green teas provide the same antioxidant effects as broccoli, spinach and tomatoes.
Teas are differentiated by color, grade and method of processing. Fermented leaves yield Black and Oolong teas, which are more hearty. Green tea requires less processing, hence its green/gold color and delicate aromas.
As for caffeine content, full flavor coffees average 110mg per cup, while most teas deliver only 50 mg. Those who find decaffeinated coffee lacking, may refer to tea for its naturally reduced caffeine content. Like coffee, it too is a natural diuretic.
Studies have shown that estrogen-like compounds in tea has increased bone mass by five percent in tea drinkers, thereby reducing fracture risk by ten to twenty percent. The comforting qualities of tea is no old wives tale either. A natural bioflavonoid found in green tea has been found to significantly increase endorphin levels, which in turn, reduce pain and anxiety.
Black tea is no slouch either. There is evidence that it has greatly reduced the incidence of cancers of the digestive tract, lungs, urinary tract, and skin among regular tea drinkers. White teas, which are very rare and derived from the buds of the tea plant and are produced almost entirely in China. This variety is known for protecting DNA, which in essence, fights cancer.
Tea is also a natural source of fluoride, which everyone knows is a preventative for tooth decay and gum disease. Each cup of tea can provide 0.1 mg, which is far more than fluorinated tap water.
Did you know that herbal teas are not true teas? They are a combination of fruits and herbs and contain no tea leaves. Though they do play a part in health, they do not afford the same benefits.
The United States Tea Association has conducted a survey and found that 85 % of tea consumed in our country is iced. Though you may think grabbing that bottled tea from the cooler at your local mini-mart will offer benefit, be aware that in order to maintain clarity of the tea, processing has removed much of the natural disease preventative antioxidants. For the most beneficial results, tea that is steeped in water that has reached boiling and then iced is the way to go.
With over three thousand varieties to choose from, chances are you will find several favorites while drinking to better health.
