Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) practice that originated thousands of years ago. It is based on the premise that a blockage or disturbance in the flow of the body's life energy, or “qi,” can cause health issues.
Acupuncturists insert hair-thin needles to specific acupuncture points throughout the body to restore the flow of qi, balance the body’s energy, stimulate healing, and promote relaxation.
Listed in the following infograph are some ways on how Acupuncture works on the Human body.

Locals know their place best. They know the idiosyncrasies, the history, the details of where they live. They know which road to turn when avoiding traffic, or if a beach breaks left or right. They are familiar with these things and experience these things at a deeper level than a tourist or transient. But getting to experience what is normal for the locals is a somewhat magical and captivating opportunity.
In Shanghai, I wanted to get to the city from the airport. I had planned to take the Maglev, but I arrived in the early morning, so my only option was the train--a much slower public form of transportation. I caught that instead, and was on my way. An hour or so later as we approached Guanglan road--a few stops before my destination--the announcement said, "This is the last stop." I knew I'd have to figure out a new plan, but once those doors opened, everyone ran out and lined up on the same platform on the opposite side of the tracks. It was a 20 feet sprint. I ran with the crowd and lined up, not knowing what was going on, but not wanting to look like I didn't know what was going on. Everyone moved in a coordintated fashion, quickly and in the same direction, and with purpose. Nobody did anything contrary to anyone else. It still amazes me to this day--the mass of people doing their thing. This probably happens multiple times a day, every day, and is normal for the locals. It's a normal occurence, and an experience I wish many people would see. It's captivating, magical, normal. #everydaylife
On the top of Waimea Canyon (3500 feet) and going higher towards the wettest place on earth (swamp by Mt. Wai'ale'ale). So high we were above clouds, it was amazing watching them fill in the space. I kept getting my lungs filled with that rich ozone scent! Found this very interesting berry with leaves, stems and fruit similar to rosehips, but the bell flower similar to blueberry. Despite the protests of the boys I ate the berries:-) Using deductive methods, rose/blueberry cross would not be poisonous, right? It turned out to be an edible ohelo berry in vaccinium (blueberry family:-). The 4 mile hike round trip was very tough, super steep appearing vertical climbs!!!! In times when I was out of breath, I decided to work on my endurance at home, so now I am doing 300 jumprope jumps a day to get some cardio workouts:-) There, in the mountains we met several older couples with enough strength for this kind of exercise. На вершине каньона Ваймея (1066 метров) и забираемся выше в сторону самого влажного места на планете (болота на горе ВаиАлеАле). Мы так высоко, выше облаков, было удивительно наблюдать, как они заполняют пространство. Так приятно было наполнять лёгкие крепким запахом озона. Нашла интересную ягодку, листья, стебель и фрукт напоминают шиповник (Розу), а колокольчиковый цветок - голубику (чернику). Несмотря на протесты ребят ягоды я съела:-) Используя дедукцию, комбинация роза/черника не может быть ядовитой, правильно? Она оказалось съедобной ягодкой охело (вакциниум сетчатый) из семейства черничных. 6,5 км прогулка туда-обратно в гору была сложной. Очень крутые, подчас почти вертикальные подъемы!!! В моменты, когда мне не хватало дыхания я решила поработать дома над своей выносливостью и теперь прыгаю по 300 прыжков в день на скакалке, чтобы добавить в рацион побольше кардио:-) Там на горах нам то и дело встречались пожилые пары, которым такая зарядка была совсем по плечу. #Hawaii#Kauai#mountains#nature#wildfood#ohelo#berry#wettestplaceonearth#traveling#family#homeschooling#fog#clouds#mystery#exercise#jumprope#health#tropicalparadise#гавайи#тропическийрай#путешествия#семья#семейноеобразование#природа#горы#ягоды#еда#скакалка

Monk Seal and the eel
A juvenile Hawaiian monk seal was found with a spotted eel in its nose at French Frigate Shoals in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands this past summer. And it wasn't the first time it happened.
The photo was taken by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and according to NOAA's Hawaiian Monk Seal Research Program, this happens from time to time. Strangely enough, though NOAA has been monitoring the monk seal population in the northern islands of Hawaii for almost 40 years, this eel-in-the-nose problem has been observed a handful of times, but only since 2016.
Researchers have noted the trend seems to be in juvenile seals, and they've offered a few possible explanations. For starters, monk seals are ocean-bottom foragers — they like to root around for little animals to eat, flipping over rocks and shoving their faces into coral reefs where eels like to hide. When faced with the ferocious maw of a monk seal, an eel might decide in the heat of the moment to rush up the predator's nose to escape danger. Researchers also have suggested the seals may be eating the eels and then regurgitating them — only their lunch come up the wrong pipe. Which sounds ... painful.
