Dealing to Our Trash

An element destroying our habitat

This subject is a no-brainer. If we are going to want stuff, it should do what we want and last a lifetime. If we think of our most basic requirements for life the land we depend on for growing our food should be kept in pristine condition yet every year we are dumping millions of tons of harmful chemicals into our soils for short-term increased production and ease of management.

Our cell phones and electronic devices are one of the most contentious issues because the manufacturers what you to buy a new device every year and discard the old which has a finite life. This was exacerbated by Apple who were accused of rolling

The Cost of Progress

And how do we value life?

Biofeedback

Technology for health

Biofeedback is an outstanding way to change personal behaviour that directly causes physical symptoms such as pain and tension.

Biofeedback – as a ‘mind over matter’ form of therapy – is a system of education and treatment (based on monitoring biological signals produced by the body) in which people are taught to improve their health and performance.

Biofeedback is a process that enables an individual to learn how to change physiological activity for the purposes of improving health and performance. Precise instruments measure physiological activity such as brainwaves, heart function, breathing, muscle activity, and skin temperature. These instruments rapidly and accurately feed back information to the user. The presentation of this information — often in conjunction with
