Why Is Google Spelled Wrong - It has 2 ls

Today, a lot of people are wondering about Google's spelling on it's homepage. The Google logo apparently has two ls where it should only have one.

Its not hard to figure out why this is. Just hover your mouse over the log and you'll see that it says "Google's 11th birthday."

So there it is. This month makes 11 years since Google got online in September 1998. Google usually changes its logo in honor of events such as holidays like Christmas and Halloween and major events such as this one.

Are Side Effects a Concern With Resveratrol?

Today's guest article is about the effects of Resveratrol, a powerful antioxidant found in grapes and red wine that can help prevent heart disease and slow signs of aging as well as other health benefits. But are there side effects to this naturally occurring wonder?

Resveratrol side effects are a topic of some discussion as this naturally produced chemical has been incorporated into a number of comprehensive dietary supplements. As with any supplement, vitamin or medication, possible complications are a legitimate cause for concern, but the more you can learn about Resveratrol the more you'll be able to ease your mind.

Resveratrol is a plant chemical found in red grapes and grape seeds and the products made from them, including juice and red wine. Resveratrol has been shown to have anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and cholesterol lowering properties, making it an important addition to any health regimen. With its range of helpful properties it is known to do everything from preventing heart disease and some cancers to lowering cholesterol levels and even slowing the progress of Alzheimer's Disease.

While the inclusion of a comprehensive daily supplement including Resveratrol in your regular routine can be very beneficial, Resveratrol side effects do exist and it is important that you be aware of any potential risks. On the plus side, direct adverse reactions to Resveratrol have yet to be reported, but there are some specific areas of caution which should be heeded.

Since Resveratrol has some estrogen related properties, women with estrogen sensitive conditions should consult a doctor before taking it. Also, Resveratrol can act as a blood thinner, so anyone taking blood thinning medications is strongly urged to consult a doctor before beginning to take a supplement which contains Resveratrol. As with any supplement or medication, nursing or pregnant women and anyone taking prescription medications should also use caution when taking Resveratrol.

While Resveratrol side effects are relatively limited, the benefits of this natural substance have been shown to be wide spread, affecting everything from circulation and joint function to respiratory health. Resveratrol is particularly effective when used in combination with other natural substances as part of a comprehensive dietary supplement.

When combined with the effects of other minerals, amino acids, enzymes and anti-oxidants, Resveratrol can be part of a long term regimen to combat the signs of aging. Dietary supplements containing natural substances such as these can help to bolster the body's natural defenses and even reverse damage caused by environmental irritants.

As part of a healthy lifestyle which includes a balanced diet, proper exercise and adequate hydration, a daily natural supplement can be your best weapon in the fight against aging. Not only can natural supplements leave you feeling energized and strong, they can help to reverse the effects of aging on everything from your internal systems to your skin and hair. Despite possible Resveratrol side effects, this can be the most important step you'll ever take in terms of your overall health.

You should never put anything into your body that you don't trust, but studies show there is no reason not to trust Resveratrol and other natural substances. Just take the time to research and make sure you are using the best possible product for you and you'll be looking and feeling better in no time!

Charles Strong has done extensive research on resveratrol and has more to share at his site Visit it now for more resveratrol research.

10 Tweets Review: The Informant

Opening this week is the based on a true story comedy, The Informant which stars Matt Damon. This week we check in as always with Twitter for the scoop on whether you should go see the movie or wait for a rainy night to download it online.

But first a little about The Informant.

Director: Steven Soderbergh
Starring: Matt Damon, Scott Bakula
Runtime: 108 mins.
MPAA Rating: R

Synopsis: A rising star in the agricultural industry suddenly turns whistleblower in hopes of gaining a lucrative promotion and becoming a hero of the common people, inadvertently revealing his penchant for helping himself to the corporate coffers and ultimately threatening to derail the very investigation he helped to launch.

Here's what the movie goers on Twitter said in this weeks edition of 10 Tweets.

Wow. I smell a disappointment. Twitter users got The Informant a rating of 3.5 out of 10. Understand that Steven Soderbergh's movies can be a little complicated and hard to get but this might actually reek. Maybe.

Have you seen The Informant? What were your thoughts?

Worst Band in the World - Creed?

It seems that Google can have their own opinion too.

Just ask them by doing a search for "worst band in the world" and they'll tell you to "see results for: Creed".

Well done Google because you also have a sense of humor. I'm not a fan of Creed either and I certainly don't know anyone personally who is.

What do you think of Google suggesting that Creed IS the worst band in the world?

True Blood Drink - Where to Buy?

Fans of HBO's True Blood can now get a taste minus the blood. They've even got an advertisement for it.

Tru Blood comes in Blood Orange and is O Positive. Its flavor is described as "uniquely carbonated, slightly tart, lightly sweet blood orange drink".

A 4-pack costs just $16.00 plus shipping and handling.

The drink isn't available in stores and I'm not sure if it will come to maybe your local Walmart anytime soon.

So where can you buy this True Blood drink?

You can buy Tru Blood online at HBO's dedicated website for the drink, TruBeverage.

Horney Goat Weed - The Cure for a Languishing Libido

The most natural way to increase libido is to use ancient methods. I don’t mean to go into bawdyhouse, but there’s the Horny Goat Weed, a three thousand year old marvelous plant, which restores the man's sexual strength and power. In ancient China many medical writings were “published” about its efficiency but Epimedium has the same qualities even today.

-“Believe it or not the horny goat weed was useful” – whispered my girlfriend Shiny. She had a problem with her sexual performance for months. Horney Goat Weed is sold on the Internet, in herbal and esoteric stores in many forms: leaves, powder or capsules, pure or in combination with other aphrodisiacs. Epimedium increases vitality, stimulates brain cells and has an overall beneficial impression on human body.

For thousands of years, Horney Goat Weed has been well known for its positive effects. This mysterious plant was recommended by Chinese physicians for male sexual enhancement.

Unlike prescription drugs for erectile dysfunction the Horney Goat Weed isn’t a chemical, it makes the human organism stronger and not weakens it. So if somebody takes it regularly he shouldn’t be afraid for it’s side effects, or that it will cause dependency.

Chinese scientist successfully used Horny Goat Weed for bronchitis treatment, and in curing fertility problems. The positive effects are caused by polysaccharides, the antiviral and antimicrobial compounds of Horney Goat Weed.

Horny Goat Weed's curing effects on lounge and circulatory problems are still researched, also the property of Horny Goat Weed increasing muscular volume.

Epimedium it’s an endemic plant in all Far East countries forests, not only in China but also in Korea, Japan and Vietnam. Recently in these countries Horney Goat Weed is artificially cultivated.

The mystery of Horny Goat Weed is still studied by scientists however everybody agrees that Epimedium has no harmful influence only positive impact on human health. It’s especially effective in curing male impotence but increases female libido too. There are many reasons for men to switch from the popular blue pills to the time tested and natural Horny Goat Weed.

If women will start to use Horney Goat Weed too, at least they won’t forget the purpose of the bed other than sleeping.

Alex Pentorf invites you to find out more about epimedium and provigrax, a formula based on horney goat weed on his associated websites.
