In this About.com video you will learn the various methods there are to brewing whole leaf tea, in order to achieve a stronger, more enjoyable, tea-drinking experience.
Whole leaf tea is tea that is primarily made up of whole, unbroken leaves. Because of the large pieces of the tealeaves, more flavor and aroma are allowed to seep into your water, giving your cup of tea a stronger flavor.
I'm going to be showing you methods using a French press, tea ball, cloth tea bag, and tea strainer.
If I Had To Live My Life - A Romantic Love Poem
If I had to live my life with out you
Crying all day and all night is what I would do
My love for you is the most precious thing on earth
I’m a warrior for wildlife, and you align in spirit and tread
With many who’ve now sealed collaboration , not with dread

Ukrainian painter Андрей Карташов was born in the city of Uzhgorod, the ancient capital of Transcarpathia, in western Ukraine. The picturesque slopes of the Carpathian mountains, the majestic open spaces, the mossy stones and ancient castles awakened in him a special feeling for the world around him, and that finally led him to the decision to devote his life to art. In 1995, Andrey graduated with honors from the College of Applied Arts of Uzhgorod. His senior project was recognized as the best end-of-study project of the year, and earned him the right to enroll, without entrance examinations, at the Lvov Academy of Arts. However, for Andrey, study at Lvov would not be sufficient; only the best academy for art, that in St. Petersburg, would satisfy his desire for the highest quality instruction possible. Once in St. Petersburg, no longer surrounded by the bright and enchanting natural beauty of Carpathia, Andrey was forced to learn a more difficult skill: to distinguish the various shades of St. Petersburg’s grey.
While it might sound surprising to some people who are used to thinking about corn as a plain, staple food, or a snack food, or a summertime party food, corn is actually a unique phytonutrient-rich food that provides us with well-documented antioxidant benefits. In terms of conventional antioxidant nutrients, corn is a good source of vitamin C as well as the mineral manganese. But it is corn's phytonutrients that have taken center stage in the antioxidant research on corn. When all varieties of corn are considered as a group, the list of corn's key antioxidant nutrients appears as follows:
Antioxidant Phytonutrients in Corn
Different varieties of corn highlight different combinations of antioxidant phytonutrients. In the case of yellow corn, carotenoids lead the way and provide especially high concentrations of lutein and zeaxanthin. Blue corn is unique in its anthocyanin antioxidants. One particular hydroxybenzoic acid in purple corn - protocatechuic acid - has recently been linked to the strong antioxidant activity in this corn variety.
O echipa de specialisti de la Southern General Hospital din Glasgow
va lansa un tratament experimental de ultima ora, prin care pacientii
care sufera de atacuri cerebrale se pot recupera miraculos.
Cercetatorii britanici spera ca prin acest experiment vor dezvolta o
noua terapie celulara capabila sa lupte eficient cu o serie de boli
incurabile. Celulele stem provin de la fetusi umani clonati sau obtinuti
in urma avorturilor si vor fi injectate in creierul pacientilor.
Odata ajunse acolo, ele vor regenera neuronii din portiunile afectate
de atacurile cerebrale, vor creste capacitatea de coordonare si miscare
si abilitatile mentale ale pacientilor, aducandu-i pe bolnavi intr-un
stadiu de sanatate foarte apropiat de cel in care se aflau inaintea atacului.
Experimentul va fi efectuat, vreme de doi ani, pe patru grupuri de trei
pacienti care au suferit atacuri cerebrale, iar in prezent sunt mentinuti
in viata numai cu ajutorul aparatelor. Medicii vor testa, in primul rand,
siguranta procedurii, dar exista si posibilitatea ca unii pacienti sa se
recupereze miraculos. Primul grup va primi o doza minima, de 2 milioane
de celule stem. In functie de rezultate, la celelalte grupuri, doza va
creste gradual , ultimului grup ajungand sa-i fie administrate 20 de milioane
de celule stem, doza care, teoretic, ar fi suficient de mare pentru a
produce regenerarea creierului, urmata de o vindecare completa.
