Almost every prominent business was once a start-up!

Smoking is not only one of the leading causes of deaths worldwide but also one of the leading causes of fires worldwide when cigarettes are left still burning somewhere in the house where they can set something on fire and later burn the whole house. One of the most terrible effects of smoking is the number of diseases it causes both on the smoker and the people near the smoker. One of these diseases is the stroke. Stroke and smoking are proven to be closely connected. Here are the disasters smoking can bring to your life through a stroke and how to prevent it.
How Smoking Causes Stroke
Tobacco smoke contains over four thousand different chemicals that promote the development of toxins that cause and accelerate the development of stroke. These toxins increase the risk of stroke. They damage the different arteries of the body by making them rupture. Damage to the arteries keeps blood from reaching the brain, increasing the risk of blood clot or stopping the flow of blood completely. This causes a stroke. People who have an increased risk of getting a stroke can also have other diseases and chronic infection, which lead to other types of stroke. The more you smoke, the more you stroke. (more…)
The first 8 months in the stock market was different from the last 4 months. In terms of my experiences and my approach towards the trade, both periods were different, and at times opposite to each other. I was more inclined to lower my losses in the first 6 months in particular, and then I was able to control my losses somewhat by the end of the 8th month. When I was convinced that I am now able to control my losses I decided to earn out of my trades.
I feel that to make profits in trading one has to be a little more offensive. Since I was inclined to cut only the losses my whole trading style had become defensive. My perception from the entry to the exit was more to get out of the trade at the earliest. I will try to book a small profit at the slightest opportunity, which didn’t help me in anyway. (more…)
If you are struggling with brown-gray patches on your skin caused by hyperpigmentation, you might have melasma. A common skin problem, melasma is characterized by brown or gray patches that usually appears on the face, neck, and arms. Most frequently, when melasma appears, it is on the cheeks, the bridge of the nose, the forehead, the upper lip, and the chin.
Although melasma may appear because of too much exposure to sunlight, it may also be triggered by hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy and with thyroid disease. Although the risk of developing melasma may be higher if you have someone in your family who has it, preventive measures such as applying sunscreen and avoiding sunlight may help. (more…)
I am able to lose less now. Yes, when I started my journey, I lost more. I had no control on how to take hold of my losses. When I look back now and follow my past 8 months, I feel that I am much more decisive these days. I find that I am able to get out of a trade when I want to, as compare to what I did earlier. Initially, I waited for things to turn in my favour, instead of getting out of a trade and cutting my losses.
Now, I am in a zone where discipline has become my forte. Importantly, I am trading much less. I have learnt the significance of stop-losses. (more…)
