Dragon Gadget Review: Amazon Fire 7 Tablet

Amazon Fire 7 version 2017, 8G

Hello Sweeties,

It has been a long while since I posted. It has been a rather busy year for me, so my blog has been in hiatus for some time.   So on the last night of 2017 and close to 2018, I write about a gadget that I have been using for the past month, the Fire 7 or formerly the Kindle Fire.

The Fire 7 came in an envelope, not really a box

I love reading, one of the reasons why I got a tablet was because I had this inane tendency to read 3 -4 book titles at the same time. It’s hard to lug around so many books on my way to work. (I also have this bad habit to reading while traveling – kids don’t try this, you will damage your eye sight). I still love printed books mind you but for traveling I wanted a tablet.

I used to carry my iPad 2 a lot but It has become burdensome because of the weight since is 1.33 lbs. Almost as heavy as my Harry Potter and Chamber of Secrets Illustrated Edition and I have no plans of carrying that book everyday since I live a commuters life of like 4 PUJ rides going to and 2 PUJ rides going home not to mention all the walking… so I wanted a lighter tablet to use. I was aiming to get another iPad Mini but alas it is too rich for my budget.

I started doing research on a reasonably priced tablet that would fit my book, manga, anime and movie addiction and I could also use to browse and check out my social media apps and most of all it has to be light.

Athena, Essential Milk Drink for Women

Hello Sweeties!

I really loved drinking milk growing up, but I grew older I made it a point to lessen my dairy  intake because I had the wrong assumption that it was fattening. Like most adults I thought that milk is no longer crucial for the body’s health after my teenage years.

Apparently I was wrong!

Milk, particularly low-fat varieties, as part of a well-balanced diet, boasts a variety of health benefits for adult , including providing high-quality protein for the body and even helping promote weight management.

Let me run down some of the benefits of milk.

Preventing Osteoporosis

Calcium is naturally found in milk, and it prevents osteoporosis or bone loss in middle and old age, and women and elderly according to studies are more prone to bone degradation.  An adult has a daily calcium requirement of 2 1/2 to 4 servings of milk daily.

Weight Management

The “Journal of the American College of Nutrition” released a review in 2005 noted that if you increase the dietary calcium intake results in lessening  body fat, and especially body weight and fat loss due to a calorie-restricted dietary regimen. Participants in the said study, are less likely to regain weight after a period of weight loss if they increased calcium intake levels.

Fighting Tooth Decay

Tooth decay can happen at any age, and drinking dairy products, like milk, protects against tooth decay. Drinking milk lessens oral acidity, one contributing factor for decay. Drinking milk also stimulates saliva flow, which is one of the mouth’s primary defenses against decay, as it carries essential nutrients — like the calcium found in milk — to the teeth.

This is the reason I am glad there is Athena Milk for Women.
