Exceptionally large diamond - A rather huge round brilliant diamond was recently unveiled by Sotheby’s Diamonds that celebrates their first anniversary. Diacore took 6 months to cut the type IIa 425 ct diamond from Botswana into a perfectly cut 102,34 ct gem graded D color and Flawless clarity by the GIA. It is just 0,40 ct lighter that Graff’s The Contellation, a D-IF 102,74 ct diamond cut from Lesotho’s Light of Lesteng, but has a better clarity grade. Round brilliant cut diamonds are very popular and common, but very rare in these large sizes, and this is reportedly the largest of its kind in the highest grades.

HOLY COW!! #Fasting#BloodSugar#Results !
But how can a #TypeII#Diabetic#SingleParent to a #SpecialNeeds child find the time to address her #Sugars natually.....
"I started taking the Plexus Triplex package on Jan 21, 2018 and these are my Fasting Blood Glucose numbers (the last time I tracked my numbers was Jan 9th... I was practicing the Ostrich technique, lol). I’m SHOCKED, to say the least!!! I’m still taking #metphormin , but it’s never affected my fasting number quite like this. And in such a short time too! My fasting numbers haven’t been this low in over a year or more! (The time on my meter does not reflect daylight savings time, so it’s an hour off real time). I’m really happy that I started this product and I can’t wait to see where it takes me 😁"; Cynthia Mininni.
It’s the lowest of lows that kills you a little. When you wake up feeling like sleeping was just a temporary comfort, your body already feels tense and uncomfortable, your mind is already telling you something is wrong and you can’t stop it. It’s like when I wake up from an emotional crash it’s just me alone in the ocean being pummeled by waves that won’t stop coming to shore. Boom you’re not adequate. Crash you’re not beautiful. Bam you’re worthless. And regardless of it all being false what else is your brain going to think when you’re stuck drowning. Come back to me little happy vibes so I can crawl out of the emotional pit that is depression. #bipolarawareness#typeII#Lifeishellninetypercentofthetime#purgatory
Muscle Fibers: Individual muscle cells that band together to make up the skeletal muscles in your body. These individual cells or fibers are wrapped into tight bundles to form fascicles, which group together to form a muscle.
Type I:Slow-twitch muscle fibers contract slower and can’t generate a lot of force but fatigue at a slow rate do to a rich blood supply and high supply of mitochondria to stock the muscle with energy. This is done through pathways that require oxygen. Or aerobically —
Type II: fast-twitch muscle fibers contract quickly and with large amounts of force but have a higher fatigue rate. Fast-twitch muscle fibers are divided into two different fibers. —
Type IIa: these fibers can be fueled both aerobically and anaerobic (without oxygen), so they are like a hybrid of type 1 and Type IIb. —
Type IIb: these fibers have the highest force generating capabilities of the fiber types. They do Fatigue easily and their main source of energy is Creatine phosphate.
When training, muscle fibers are recruited based on the strength of the contraction required to do the task at hand. If your using a lower resistance and don’t need to generate much force, the body will recruit mainly slow-twitch fibers to do this task. As the resistance increase and the body needs to generate more force, it begins to recruit fast-twitch fibers due to their greater ability to generate force. Remember Muscle fibers are recruited in sequence. The body will always recruit slow-twitch muscle fibers first. This is because slow-twitch fibers are the smallest in size and have the lowest threshold for firing. If more force is required the larger, higher threshold fast-twitch muscle fibers are recruited to aid in completion of this task.
There is evidence from a study to shows that the recruitment of type II (fast twitch) muscle fibers before type I (slow twitch) but only during certain types of movements, more specifically an eccentric (muscle lengthening) contraction. But the results found evidence that this can only occur in moderate to fast contraction speeds.

How The Microbiome Diet Can Help Type 2 Diabetes
study published in Nature, from researchers at the University of Copenhagen, suggests that a gut bacteria imbalance may raise the risk of developing insulin resistance. Insulin resistance is the metabolic process involved in the development of pre-diabetes, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease.
Raphael Kellman, MD, author of The Microbiome Diet and Founder of The Kellman Center for Integrative and Functional Medicine is a microbiome expert. In light of this study, we ask him questions about how we can pay attention to our microbiome in order to reap the benefits of a healthy gut. These benefits include better blood sugar levels, more energy, weight loss, and a better mood.
DD: What is the microbiome and why is having a balanced one important for preventing diseases?
The microbiome is made up of trillions of microscopic organisms, the majority of which flourish in the gastrointestinal track playing a huge role in the health and function of the entire body.
Similar to an Intel processor in a computer, the microbiome is our internal software that unifies all the systems of our bodies to make us the super-organisms that we are. These ideas about tapping into healing the microbiome are only now beginning to permeate the conventional medical world.
The microbiome is the key to healing diseases and an essential part to healthy weight loss. The microbiome affects everything from our metabolism to our immune system and has been revolutionary in helping to manage developmental illness, mood disorders, chronic illness, endocrinology conditions and the list goes on and on.
The microbiome is also the key to preventing and even reversing such major illnesses as diabetes, heart disease, metabolic syndrome, autoimmune disorders, and autism and other developmental disorders. A good probiotic ( Probio5... link to purchase www.shopmyplexus.com/sharondrinkspink ) is key to maintaining a healthy gut microbiome .
I have been coveting a Levis 1953 Type II style denim jacket in raw Japanese selvedge denim for quite a while now so I decided to get myself one for Christmas. The Self Edge in NYC, where I purchased mine, worked with the prestigious brand Sugar Cane to create a beautifully adapted raw unsanforized jacket 1.5 inches longer than the rather crop topped original and a larger US sized piece in 14 oz denim that is slubby and fades wonderfully fast. I'm so looking forward to breaking it in with the opportunity for some gorgeous high contrast fades like that pictured from Heddels example on the right. The left side is a Self Edge picture of their collaboration in its brand new raw state, as I own it now and the right Heddel's image demonstrating the potentional for gorgeous high contrast fades. I'm very excited! #typeII#sugarcandenim#sugarcane1953#levistypeiidenim#sugarcandenimjacket#selvedgedenim#selvedgedenimjacket
Tanuki's Type II has a serious case of the blues and we ain't mad about it: their double rope-dyed, indigo warp and weft, 15oz. unsanforized selvedge, once-washed jacket also tops up the pocket count for all your 21st century gadgets. Learn more at heddels.com. Image: @miloh.shop
