This medication is a mineral supplement used to treat or prevent low amounts of potassium in the blood. A normal level of potassium in the blood is important. Potassium helps your cells, kidneys, heart, muscles, and nerves work properly. Most people get enough potassium by eating a well-balanced diet. Some conditions that can lower your body's potassium level include severe prolonged diarrhea and vomiting, hormone problems such as hyperaldosteronism, or treatment with "water pills"/diuretics.

The Slow Food Movement

...the Slow Food Movement The International Slow Food Movement is a nonprofit organization that critiques and opposes to the concept of “Fast Food” as well as the general malnutrition of Western consumption. The movement is dynamic, striving to promote healthy living through various ways, including a heavy emphasis on and practice of organic and local growth. Moreover, Slow Food promotes a return to rural lifestyle and, generally, traditional eating. In 1986, Carlo Petrini launched the movement in Italy in direct opposition to the opening of a McDonalds near the Spanish Steps in Rome. However, despite the protest’s success, it was not until three years later that delegates from 15 countries met in Paris to sign the movement’s Manifesto. The objectives of Slow Food’s mission are expansive and ambitious. For instance, some objectives include seeking to form and maintain seed banks, practicing and protecting local culinary tradition, and organizing small-scale food processing. In addition, it strives to educate consumers about the health risks of fast food, as well as commercial agriculture and factory farms. Furthermore, on a policy level Slow Food lobbies for organic farming and the lessening of genetic engineering and the use of pesticides. Finally, the movement actively teaches gardening skills to students and prisoners and encourages lifestyles of ethical consumption. Petrini attests that “everyone has the right to good, clean and fair food” (“The Slow Food...

Slow It Down

...Slow It Down Does anyone ever look at the real beauty of one? Does anyone see the real in me and not the fake? Does anyone realize how much I would care for them if they loved/liked me? No. Not one person its like my only friend is my shadow. Every time I talk to someone its like I’m talking to myself all-alone in the end. I scream my name like a fool hoping someone will hear but the only thing coming back is my echo. I just wish I had someone. Not even a boyfriend labeled but someone I can tell my deepest secrets to, cuddle with, kiss, hug for 5 minutes without it being awkward, hold his hand, and do coupley things. But it’s just my echo and shadow that is my only hope. Ill never be in love. Ill never find the one. I feel like I’m just weird and not one guy would ever fall for me because I’m not like the others, idk? Maybe I’m to mentally fucked up. Maybe they know that I’m scared of settling. The only thing that keeps me still open for a chance in love is the love tree quote. “Girls are like apples on a tree. The best ones are at the top. The boys don’t want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead they just get the rotten apples, at the bottoms, that aren’t as good, but easy. So the apples at the top think there is something wrong with them, when in reality, they are amazing. They just have to wait for the right guy to come along, the one who is brave enough to climb a tree all the way to the top.” Love is meant to make you......

Mine is the proverbial office watercooler, where opinions are shared and gossip is exchanged. I hope to enrich the vocabulary that people use when they talk about the judgments and choices of others, the company’s new policies, or a colleague’s investment decisions. Why be concerned with gossip? Because it is much easier, as well as far more enjoyable, to identify and label the mistakes of others than to recognize our own. Questioning what we believe and want is difficult at the best of times, and especially difficult when we most need to do it, but we can benefit from the informed opinions of others. Many of us spontaneously anticipate how friends and colleagues will evaluate our choices; the quality and content of these anticipated judgments therefore matters. The expectation of intelligent gossip is a powerful motive for serious self-criticism, more powerful than New Y......

The Slow Progress

...Kill Bill (2001) have emerged showing women in a new light. Similarly, films such as Gladiator (2000) and Finding Nemo (2003) have showed a softer side of males that is rarely shown on screen. So what is have the film industry progressed towards a fairer and more accurate of gender in movies? Literature Review In recent studies, Gilpatric (2010) uses violence as a tool of measure to demonstrate that movies are still depicting gender stereotypes in violent female action character. This is backed by Sternheimer (2003) as she argues that even though females appear to be independent, they are still dependent on males which reinforces traditional gender stereotype. Nevertheless, there has been a noticeable trend that there is a fairer portrayal of gender in films in recent years (Nelmes, 2007). Such a trend is evident in Finding Nemo as Brydon (2009) claim that even Disney, the champions of gender stereotype, has the capacity to steer away from traditional gender roles. Heroines in films have “cross[ed] variable gender boundaries” (Brown, 2003, p. 52). In another article, Brown (2003) introduced the concept of dominatrix which the use of the strengths of masculine and feminine trait. This concept forms the basis of which tough women are depicted in films. In addition, Smelik (2009) argues that there is a new portrayal of gender roles in modern films rendering the older film theories irrelevant. While some have proven that traditional gender stereotype may exist......

Slow and Steady

...Slow and Steady: the next big thing after sliced bread!! He kept looking down the entire time. She was scolding him for breaking yet another picture frame. All the picture frames hung on the wall and Tunji would always climb on the chairs so that he could reach the frames, pull them down and down they came shattered and broken. She had beaten him so many times, scolded him, counselled him but nothing worked. What could be wrong with this boy, she wondered. He was ten years old and very destructive. They had nicknamed him “wrecking ball”. He wrecked everything in his way. Tools, picture frames, phones, ipads, laptops, tumblers, books etc. “Tunji why, why” she sighed and for the first time she communicated something he had not heard since he started his “wrecking ball” career “I love you son no matter how much you cause me pain but it is really unfair to repay love with this amount of pain”, “Tunji when someone shows you love, you love right back”. On this note she ended her conversation with her 10 year old son and walked away. He did not move for a while, he felt sorry that mummy did not think that he loved her. He loved her, he drew a cartoon that looked like her on Monday and gave the character super powers because mummy could do so many things at the same time. “Okay I will let her know I love her” he thought in his mind. On his Eleventh birthday, Mummy was grinning from ear to ear celebrating Tunji her sweet little boy growing up to become a man. Tunji washed her...

K-Pop

...Good morning to Miss Liana and fellow classmates, my name is Chua Wen Yee and the topic I’m going to talk about today is K-Pop. First of all, I’ll start off with some basic facts. K-Pop is a musical genre originated from South Korea. The pioneer of K-Pop is Seo Taeji and The Boys, which one of the member is the CEO of YG Entertainment, home of Big Bang and 2NE1 now. K-Pop was strongly criticized by a lot of people, including me. However it has been rising day by day and not only conquered the Asia music market but it is also globalized in the sense that there are K-Pop fans all over the world. According to my research, in year 2012, 68 K-Pop groups made their debut compared to 12 in year 2008. From hate to love, from critics to praise, how does this happened? I think everyone of you definitely has a friend who is a hardcore K-Pop fan. Most of you must have suffered a lot because they like to share their K-Pop information and ask you to watch funny videos very much. Thanks to them, you’ll slowly found out that you are starting to love K-Pop and soon you’ll become one of them. Seriously, some of you may wonder why people love K-Pop so much? The reasons are simple. First of all, the songs are really nice. There are three main components in a song, melody, choreography and visual. Catchy and repeated chorus is one of the reasons why K-Pop songs can be viral and popular. For example, “Wow, fantastic baby”, “because I’m shadow, shadow, shadow”, “bwara Mr. simple simple” or......

K Mart

...replace what is not selling. With an inability to keep up with buyer preferences, you can’t understand your customer needs. Strength & Weaknesses Kmart has the ability to really take a lot out of its competition if they really started to focus more on their weaknesses instead of only adding juice to their strengths. Some weaknesses that really limits Kmart includes its supply chain management, poor leadership, bankruptcy, poor store house keeping, strategy execution, lack of consistent customer service, lack of up to date technology, and a lack of appealing to the youth. Kmart does have some good qualities that should in some ways provide some momentum for them to get back into the competition such as buy power, brand awareness, Big K-Mart (supercenters), alliance with sears (technology boost), and an opportunity to have international growth. If Kmart played their cards right, they could really come back strong. It is clear that Kmart’s cultural environment is at was with itself. If you replace the leaders with people who have a servant leadership mindset, then you can really fix a lot of other small things in the company. Servant leadership and selfless leadership walk hand in hand. I would hire a selfless leader (one who puts himself in the customer’s shoes) and have him be in charge of hiring personnel. It would eradicate all of the poor housekeeping problems, keep up with buyer preferences, and make the store more customer friendly over-all. The only thing......

Thinking Fast and Slow

...Jason Drago Professor Bhargave Marketing 4093 24 February 2015 Thinking Fast and Slow Thinking Fast and Slow is a book written by Daniel Kahneman. The book contains over 40 years of his and his colleague’s research on the human mind and the way humans make judgments and decisions. Kahneman makes the book very intriguing by applying his experimental findings to his concepts throughout the book. His hope for the readers of this book is that they will be able to recognize when our brain tries to act irrational, and gives steps to take to try and make rational decisions. The book begins with an introduction on the work between Daniel Kahneman and his good friend Ramos Tversky. The two began to work together in 1969 and wrote an article on intuitive statistics. It was then that they realized that they really enjoyed each others company and that together, they were capable of discovering things that each on there own could not achieve. This is what led them to continue to work together for fourteen years. Throughout the fourteen years, the pair wrote many articles with their two greatest works being, “Judgment Under Uncertainty: Heuristics and Biases” and “Prospect Theory: An Analysis of Decision Under Risk.” These two works became very influential to many in the field of research in judgment, decision-making and behavioral economics. Kahneman went on to win the Nobel Prize in 2002 for his and Amos’ work on judgment, decision making, and prospect theory, but he says......

Slow Progress

...A further reason for the slow progress was the costs of the cold war. Harry Truman involved in a cold war fighting against communism, recognized that racism at home contradicted American claims to lead the “free world”. Reasoning for this being not as important as important as the previous two factors would be that the other contributed to the civil rights movement more than the cold war and the cold war didn’t slow down the civil rights movement as much as the other factors. The cold war didn’t have an impact on everyone whereas De Factor Prejudices did. Harry Truman linked he cold war to America’s race relationships. With America facing a serious threat of communism and their policy of containment the federal bureau but all civil rights movement under close scrutiny. The civil rights movement had to spend money to fight any public association with communism assigned to them. This divided and slowed down the whole civil rights movement, only with the decline of the cold war in late 1960s could the civil rights movement stand up to activism. However this is a less important reason as the cold war relations calmed down after late 1960 opening new doors for the civil rights movement. The Final reason for the slow progress was De Facto Prejudices- over coming resistance Civil rights suffered many factors of resistance one being from the White Citizens Council which was formed on July 11th 1956. Members were mostly southern and the council had over 60,000 members the councils...

K To12

...K to12 for Quality Education Joel A. Pol-ocan K to12, though already implemented is still a major issue in the country. Filipino people cannot accept the fact that our education is now prolonged. Some are arguing that K to12 is not the solution to improve the quality of education while other’s concern is to lessen the burden of the parents and children particularly those who are living in poverty. Well, for us, we cannot blame those people and they are not pessimistic because what they only want is to have assurance of a better and long term future based from the decisions that our government is making. I strongly believe that the implementation of the K to12curriculum is an assurance for quality education if implemented properly from the higher ups down to the four walls of the classroom. I've said this because as we observed from those countries who belong to the first and second world countries, they don’t have just have 12 years but more than and see they are very progressive. Let’s take United States for example, they follow k to 15 curriculum, their government is very supportive to education, see what is America. One of the essential components of the K to 12 curriculum is the implementation of Mother Tongue Base Multi-lingual Education (MTB-MLE) in which the first language will be the medium of instruction from kinder to grade 3. I am certain that the MTB-MLE is also beneficial in attaining quality education. Studies show that students learn better when taught...

Thinking, Fast and Slow

...According to Kahneman, our brains are comprised of two main systems: one that has the ability to think fast and another that thinks slow. Naturally, the first system acts on impulse. This part of the brain operates automatically and almost effortlessly, controlling our involuntary actions such as reacting to a dangerous incoming object or telling our hearts to keep beating. The second system, however, acts in a more methodological manner - it processes inputs and information instead of acting purely on intuition and natural inclination. This part of the brain is usually responsible for helping us solve computational problems and serves as the “hub” for most of the critical thinking we do. In the first chapter of Thinking, Fast and Slow, Kahneman claims that these two systems of the brain are analogous to two characters or personalities that are always competing with one another. He states that system one functions off heuristics - which are the biases that exist in our intuition - and that system two is then faced with the task of evaluating and attempting to fix those biases (often failing to do so effectively). Therefore, one of the main points of his book is to elucidate how to “recognize situations in which mistakes are likely and try harder to avoid significant mistakes when the stakes are high”. In the second chapter of Thinking, Fast and Slow, Kahneman describes how most humans have a natural tendency to think fast. This is because system two usually requires more......

Why Computers Are Slow

...the same as when Kasi acquired its computers several years ago. Unfortunately as the years progress, the one thing they might not have anticipated was that the PC’s would be slow as time passed which in turn affect the business. To solve the prevailing issues, reasons for their PC’s being slow and possible solutions had to be uncovered in order to prevent any further damages that in the long run might end up costing the company expenses that had not been budgeted for. Inorder to find a solution to the problem at hand, an exercise known as trouble shooting had to be done. This is where a step by step routine check of the machine is done in order to find a solution, ensuring that every part of the PC has been checked and functions have been confirmed to be in order. This would in turn enable them to eliminate some of the obvious road blocks which could interfere with the efforts to find a solution to the slow PCs’. Some of the reasons as to why the computer is gradually becoming slow may be due to hardware issues such as a slow processor, not enough RAM and the hard drive is either too slow or is crashing. Software issue that may make the computers slow includes having way too many items in the start up menu, unnecessary services starting automatically, viruses/Trojans/worms, security software that uses too much CPU and memory, graphic intensive desktop environment, invalid registry entries, highly fragmented hard drive, hardware problems and outdated drivers and......
