Insidious: Chapter 2 is a 2013 American supernatural horror film directed by James Wan. The film is a sequel to 2010’s Insidious, the second installment in the Insidious franchise, and the fourth in terms of the series’ in-story chronology. The film stars Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne, reprising their roles as Josh and Renai Lambert, a husband and wife who seek to uncover the secret that has left them dangerously connected to the spirit world.

The film was released September 13, 2013. A prequel film, Insidious: Chapter 3, was released on June 5, 2015.

In 1986, Lorraine Lambert summons demonologist Elise Rainier to help her son Josh, who is being followed by the spirit of an old woman. After encountering paranormal phenomena in the Lambert Home, Elise tells Lorraine that they must suppress Josh’s astral projection abilities for his own safety.

Twenty-five years later, Josh’s wife, Renai Lambert, is under questioning about the death of Elise. She is warned that if Josh’s fingerprints are found at the crime scene, he will be prosecuted for Elise’s murder. Josh, Renai and their children Dalton, Foster and Cali, relocate to Lorraine’s house. They soon begin to encounter strange, seemingly paranormal events.

Specs and Tucker, Elise’s associates, visit Elise’s house and discover a videotape of the 1986 investigation. Upon reviewing it, they find someone standing behind Josh in the video. The next morning, Dalton tells his mother that he has been having bad dreams involving a woman in a white dress; as well as hearing Josh talk to an unseen figure. Renai receives a call from the police stating that the fingerprints do not match Josh’s. The woman in the white dress appears and attacks Renai. Josh hears a voice urging him to kill his family

The Lamberts believe that they have defeated the spirits that have haunted their family, but they soon discover that evil is not beaten so easily.

Spirulina: Nutrition Information, Potential Health Benefits of Spirulina & Potential Risks of Spirulina

An Internet search returns hundreds of suppliers from around the world promoting spirulina’s supposed health benefits. Spirulina is known as a nutrient-dense food as it is packed full of vitamins, including vitamins A, C, E and B vitamins, as well as a whole host of minerals.

Spirulina Nutrition Information

One tablespoon of spirulina contains:

  • Calories: 20
  • Protein: 4 grams
  • Fat: 1 gram
  • Carbohydrates: 2 grams
  • Fiber: 0 grams
  • Sugar: 0 grams

Spirulina is a good source of:

  • Thiamine ( v itamin B1)
  • Riboflavin ( v itamin B2)
  • Niacin ( v itamin B3)
  • Copper
  • Iron

Spirulina also contains magnesium. This mineral supports normal daily functions like muscle use and your heartbeat. It’s also responsible for producing protein and creating energy — but most people don’t get enough in their diet.

Spirulina Potential Health Benefits of Spirulina

Spirulina Health Benefits: Superfood Nutrition at Its Best - VeggieShake

Spirulina is a potent source of nutrients. It contains a powerful plant-based protein called phycocyanin. Research shows this may have antioxidant, pain-relief, anti-inflammatory, and brain-protective properties.

This antioxidant and other nutrients in spirulina are linked with several health benefits:

Spirulina Anti-Cancer Properties

Many antioxidants in spirulina have anti-inflammatory effects in the body. Chronic inflammation contributes to cancer and other diseases.

Phycocyanin — the a plant pigment that gives spirulina its blue-green color — has been found to not only reduce inflammation in the body, but also block tumor growth and kill cancer cells. The immune-enhancing protein is being studied for its potential in cancer treatment.

Heart Health

Research has found that the protein in spirulina can reduce the body’s absorption of cholesterol, lowering cholesterol levels. This helps keep your arteries clear, reducing strain on your heart that can lead to heart disease and stroke-causing blo od clots.

Its protein also reduces triglyceride levels. These are fats in your blood that can contribute to the hardening of arteries, increasing the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and pancreatitis.

Spirulina increases nitric oxide production in your body as well, which helps your blood vessels relax. Studies show that this can reduce your blood pressure, lowering your heart disease risk.

Allergy Relief

The anti-inflammatory effect caused by spirulina’s antioxidants may help people with allergies caused by pollen, animal hair, and dust. One study found that symptoms like congestion, sneezing, and itching were reduced significantly in participants, suggesting that spirulina may be a good alternative to allergy medications.

Immune System Support

Spirulina is rich in a range of vitamins and minerals essential for maintaining a healthy immune system, like vitamins E, C, and B6. Research finds that spirulina also boosts the production of white blood cells and antibodies that fight viruses and bacteria in your body.

Laboratory studies show that spirulina can fight herpes, flu, and HIV — though much more research is needed to test these effects in humans.

May Maintain Eye and Oral Health

Spirulina is concentrated with zeaxanthin, a plant pigment that may reduce the risk of cataracts and age-related vision loss.

Its antibacterial properties may also help promote good oral health. One study found that spirulina-enhanced mouthwash reduced dental plaque and the risk of gingivitis in participants. Another study showed it lowered the risk of oral cancer in people who chew tobacco.

Potential Risks of Spirulina

 

Because spirulina is high in nutrient activity, you should talk to your doctor before taking it or any other supplement. It may pose health risks for some people, including:

Toxins

Spirulina harvested in the wild may be contaminated with heavy metals and bacteria. In high amounts, some of these toxins may stress or damage your liver.

Pregnancy Concerns

There is not enough research to suggest blue-green algae is safe for pregnant or breastfeeding women. Because of the toxin risk, doctors recommend that pregnant women avoid spirulina.

Bleeding Disorders

Because spirulina can help reduce blood clotting, it may increase the risk of bruising and bleeding in people with certain bleeding conditions.

Knowing How To Take Spirulina in 3 Easy Ways [COMPLETE GUIDE]

OVERVIEW

Spirulina is a powerful little algae that can provide you with a wide variety of health benefits. These benefits will also be exactly the same regardless of whether you consume its fresh, powder, or tablet forms. Just remember that when choosing spirulina, you are always best to go organic. This is because non-organic spirulina may contain nitrate compounds.

Oh, and I should also warn you that despite being one the best super foods, something that will give your body all the nutrients it needs, spirulina is definitely not known for its pleasant flavor. But don’t worry, every problem has a solution and what follows are my tips for how best to benefit from this amazing little green algae.

3 Simple Steps How To Take Spirulina

Step 1 – Take a 3000 mg dose of spirulina each day, preferably in the morning with breakfast. A health care provider will need to determine the exact dosage that is right for you, but 3000 mg is the standard dosage and will provide you with all the healthy benefits.

Step 2 – Add a dose of spirulina powder to your smoothies, juices, or yogurts. This will help conceal its slightly bitter taste.

Step 3 – Take spirulina at least one hour before drinking alcohol, coffee, or soft drinks. As tough as it is, surviving even at 160 degrees Fahrenheit, these drinks can destroy its delicate nutrients and enzymes.

You Can Also Use Spirulina if You’re:

Pregnant

Overview

Spirulina is a safe choice for cautious mothers, and its superior nutritional content make it ideal for periods of fertility and pregnancy.

Indeed, as well as being an excellent source of vitamins and minerals, spirulina is also a rich source of easily digestible protein and omega 3; an essential fatty acid which helps to build the brain and nervous system of the foetus.When taking spirulina during pregnancy, start with a low dose. A quarter of a teaspoon is fine, and then increase slowly to a maximum of two teaspoons.

Athletic

Do you enjoy the active side in life, and is in need for more stamina, better performance, more endurance and fast recovery? Then spirulina is definitely for you! Spirulina is used by most athletes as a supplement to boost their performance and enhancing their level of endurance. Spirulina also protects athletes from over training, by supporting their immune system. Spirulina increase the metabolism which helps the body to burn fat much faster.

This process reduce the body’s dependence on carbs for energy, which helps to release energy during you workout, as well as keeping sustained energy levels after your workout. The build up of toxins in the muscles is the main cause of muscle fatigue during exercise, but spirulina has a high level of antioxidants, which prevents the building up of toxic-free radicals in your muscles during exercise or training.

Depending on your training schedule, you can take up to 30 grams per day with water. In the case of extreme exertion, take 6 to 9 tablets per day extra, which means you can take up to 30 tablets daily. Spirulina is easy to digest, so you can take the tablets before and during the competition or trial. A few tablets after the completion of the trial will ensure faster recovery.

Creating Food With Spirulina

Creating meals with the superfood spirulina can actually be a very tasty experience! The addition of spirulina to your culinary creations, even if just a sprinkle on your salads, will add a little zest and excitement. Try it, apart from all the aforementioned health benefits, it’s also easy to use and very colourful.

Spirulina Shakes

Shakes are easy and are even less time consuming than physically cooking or preparing a meal with spirulina. Try one for breakfast or before a work out. I recommend the Banana Island Spirulina Shake!

Banana Island Spirulina Shake

  • 11/2 Frozen Bananas
  • 3/4 Cup Watermelon, Frozen. (Pinepple can also be used)

Banana Island Spirulina Shake Method :
  • Blend until smooth
  • For a tropical spin, splash on some coconut milk or sprinkle with a few pinches of dried coconut.
  • Spirulina Juice

Note: You probably want to begin with a teaspoon of spirulina powder, mixed with fruit juice in a blender, but to create your own organic spirulina juice will enhance the taste, freshness and be more nutritious.

Go-Green Spirulina Juice

  • 1 Fresh Chopped Cucumber
  • 2 Medium Sized Green Apples Sliced

  • 1 Tsp Spirulina Powder

Go-Green Spirulina Juice Method:

  • Squeeze the lime juice over the contents.
  • Blend until smooth and then only add the spirulina.
  • Blend until fully mixed.

Spirulina Salads

Spirulina don’t have to be used in juice and shakes only, but in fresh salads as well. A sprinkle of spirulina over your fresh salad will enhance your level of nutrients and leave you energized.

Green Delight Spirulina Salad

Ingredients:

  • 2 Cups of Fresh Mixed Greens

Spirulina Dessert

By choosing superfood-based desserts, you will never have to sacrifice taste for health. Spirulina can be enjoyed in delicious desserts as well! You can now enjoy a guilt- free dessert filled with all nutrients your body need.

Sweet Spirulina and Sesame Balls

Ingredients:

  • 1 Cup Raw Almonds

History

Woodstock

 

The Woodstock Music Festival began on August 15, 1969, as half a million people waited on a dairy farm in Bethel, New York, for the three-day music festival to start. Billed as “An Aquarian Experience: 3 Days of Peace and Music,” the epic event would later be known simply as Woodstock and become synonymous with the counterculture movement of the 1960s. Woodstock was a success, but the massive concert didn’t come off without a hitch: Last-minute venue changes, bad weather and the hordes of attendees caused major headaches. Still, despite—or because of—a lot of sex, drugs, rock ‘n’ roll and rain, Woodstock was a peaceful celebration and earned its hallowed place in pop culture history.

Woodstock Ventures

The Woodstock Music Festival was the brainchild of four men, all age 27 or younger, looking for an investment opportunity: John Roberts, Joel Rosenman, Artie Kornfeld and Michael Lang.

Lang had organized the successful Miami Music Festival in 1968 and Kornfeld was the youngest vice president at Capitol Records. Roberts and Rosenman were New York entrepreneurs involved in building a Manhattan recording studio. The four men formed Woodstock Ventures, Inc., and decided to host a music festival.

Creedence Clearwater Revival was the first big-name talent to sign on and gave Woodstock the credibility it needed to attract other well-known musicians.

Where Was Woodstock?

The initial plan for Woodstock called for the event to be held at Howard Mills Industrial Park in Wallkill, New York.

Wallkill town officials got spooked, however, and backed out of the deal, passing a law that eliminated any possibility of holding the concert on their turf.

Woodstock Ventures explored a few other venues, but none panned out. Finally, just a month ahead of the concert, 49-year-old dairy farmer Max Yasgur offered to rent them part of his land in the White Lake area of Bethel, New York, surrounded by the verdant Catskill Mountains.

With the concert just a month away, the four frantic partners jumped at the opportunity and paid his asking price.

Woodstock Becomes a Free Concert

With a venue and talent secured, the partners turned to logistics. Fencing, entrance gates and ticket booths needed to be set up and a performers’ pavilion, concession stands, bathroom facilities and medical tents built.

But by the time people started arriving a couple days ahead of the concert, the fencing, gates and ticket booths still weren’t ready.

According to Lang, in an interview with The Telegraph, “You do everything you can to get the gates and the fences finished—but you have your priorities. People are coming, and you need to be able to feed them, and take care of them, and give them a show. So you have to prioritize.”

With no efficient way to charge concert-goers, Lang and his partners decided to make Woodstock a free event.

The Masses Arrive

Originally, about 50,000 people were expected. But by August 13, at least that number were already camped out on location and over 100,000 tickets pre-sold.

As an estimated one million people descended on Woodstock, its organizers scrambled to add more facilities. Highways and local roads came to a standstill and many concert-goers simply abandoned their cars and trekked the rest of the way on foot. Eventually, about half a million people reached the venue.

The Audience

The Woodstock audience was diverse and a reflection of the rapidly-changing times. Some were hippies who felt alienated by a society steeped in materialism.

In 1969, the country was deep into the controversial Vietnam War, a conflict that many young people vehemently opposed. It was also the era of the civil rights movement, a period of great unrest and protest. Woodstock was an opportunity for people to escape into music and spread a message of unity and peace.

Although the crowd at Woodstock experienced bad weather, muddy conditions and a lack of food, water and adequate sanitation, the overall vibe there was harmonious. Looking back, some people attribute the lack of violence to the large number of psychedelic drugs being used.

Others believe hippies were simply living out their mantra of “making love, not war.” In fact, more than a few couples at Woodstock took that command literally and made love whenever and wherever the mood hit.

Safety and Security Issues

Volunteer doctors, EMTs and nurses manned Woodstock’s medical tent. Most injuries were minor such as food poisoning and wounded bare feet.

It’s widely reported eight women experienced miscarriages. One teenager died after being run over by a tractor. Another person died a drug-related death.

Security was limited since off-duty police officers were banned. It’s estimated there were no more than a dozen police officers to keep an eye on 500,000 people.

Wavy Gravy and the Hog Farm

To pick up the slack and help create a safe festival ground, Woodstock Ventures turned to the Hog Farm, a communal pig farm in New Mexico. Its leader, known as Wavy Gravy, threatened to douse people who got out of line with seltzer water or hurl pies at them.

The Hog Farm also set up a children’s playground, a free food kitchen and a tent to assist people “freaking out” on drugs.

Woodstock Performers

Thirty-two musicians, a combination of local and world-famous talent, performed at Woodstock. Around 5:00 p.m. on Friday, August 15, Richie Havens took the stage and played a 45-minute set.

Havens was followed by an unscheduled blessing by yoga guru Sri Swami Satchidananda. The other performers on day one were:

  • Bert Sommer
  • Sweetwater
  • Melanie
  • Tim Hardin
  • Ravi Shanker
  • Arlo Guthrie
  • Joan Baez

Baez famously played the end of her set in a torrential downpour. Day one wrapped up around 2:00 a.m. on August 16.

Day two officially began around 12:15 p.m. Day two’s line-up was:

  • Quill
  • Country Joe McDonald
  • John Sebastian
  • Keef Hartley Band
  • Santana
  • The Incredible String Band
  • Canned Heat
  • Mountain
  • The Grateful Dead
  • Creedence Clearwater Revival
  • Janis Joplin
  • Sly and the Family Stone
  • The Who
  • Jefferson Airplane

Day two ended around 9:45 a.m. on Sunday, August 17.

Day three began around 2:00 p.m. Joe Cocker was the first musician to perform. The remaining line up included:

  • Country Joe and The Fish
  • Ten Years After
  • The Band
  • Johnny Winter
  • Blood Sweat and Tears
  • Crosby Stills Nash and Young
  • Paul Butterfield Blues Band
  • Sha Na Na
  • Jimi Hendrix

Hendrix was the last musician to perform at Woodstock. Rain delays prevented him from taking the stage until early Monday morning and by the time he went on, the crowd had thinned to around 25,000 people.

Musicians who declined to perform at Woodstock included:

  • Simon and Garfunkel
  • Led Zeppelin
  • Bob Dylan
  • The Byrds
  • The Moody Blues
  • The Doors
  • Roy Rogers
  • John Lennon
  • Chicago Transit Authority
  • The Rolling Stones

Legacy of Woodstock

Woodstock officially ended on Monday, August 18, after Hendrix left the stage. Leaving Woodstock wasn’t much easier than getting there. Roads and highways quickly became jammed again as festival-goers made their way home.

Cleaning up the venue was a mammoth task and required several days, many bulldozers and tens of thousands of dollars.

In 2006, Bethel Woods Center for the Arts opened on the hill where the Woodstock Music Festival took place. Today, it hosts outdoor concerts in its beautiful pavilion. There’s also a 1960s museum on site.

Many popular musicians have performed at Bethel Woods, including some who took the stage at Woodstock such as Crosby Stills Nash and Young, Santana, Arlo Guthrie and Joe Cocker.

Woodstock is perhaps best described by Max Yasgur, the humble farmer who lent his land for the occasion. Addressing the audience on day three he said, “…You’ve proven something to the world…the important thing that you’ve proven to the world is that a half a million kids, and I call you kids because I have children who are older than you are, a half a million young people can get together and have three days of fun and music and have nothing but fun and music and God bless you for it!”
