Every New Year fills us with a promise of improvement and stability, and after such a turbulent time, we strive to write a more peaceful and fulfilling chapter for 2016. Since the dawn of mankind, humanity has learned that a great way to attract fortune and positive vibes is to carry good luck amulets which have been infused with good intentions. A common belief is that our eyes can transmit either good or bad energy towards the things we look at, and bad emotions such as jealousy or ill-wishes can cause a lot of harm when they reach other people or things.Many Mediterranean and native cultures believe our eyes have incredible and often undiscovered powers, and some civilizations would often consume the eyes of their loved ones or even their enemies, hoping their strength would be passed on to their own bodies.

With this new collection, we continue to honor this tradition by including several fun pieces with different gemstone charms to choose from, shaped as popular amulets or animal motifs. Although it might seem silly, back in the day, precious and semi-precious stones were used by many as a way of curing diseases or obtaining supernatural powers. Some legends and beliefs still surround these materials, and we’ve gathered a few of them so you can know more about your favorite stones.
Agates are the official birthstones of September, and they can be found in many colors and patterns. Agates have been considered popular healers during centuries, since it can reduce inflammations, sharpens physical strength and reduces stress. Quartz, known as rock crystals, are beautiful gems that can be found in many different hues and shapes across the world. Many different myths surround these stones according to each country, and it has been believed that they can provide clairvoyance, connect with other worlds, summon the elements, and protect or heal its wearer.
The amethyst is the official birthstone of February, and it’s known for having a beautiful and impressive purple shade. This beautiful gem with green and blue hues was first discovered in the 13th century, and it received its name due to a misguided belief that it came from Turkey. Some native civilizations have linked the turquoise to deities, since it reflected the color of the sky, and they were believed to connect the spiritual and physical world. When worn in a bracelet, it’s believed that this gemstone can prevent or sooth pain, and also produce happiness and peace of mind.

The clothing: stay warm while keeping it simple with a chunky turtleneck and a pair of tight jeans, and simply give it a stylish look with knee-high boots.
The hair: opt for messy locks, letting your hair fall loosely, and styling it with your fingers to give it just a touch of volume. The makeup: you won’t need a lot of makeup for staying indoors, so opt for nude colors and soft corals for a fresh, cute and relaxed look.
If you and your partner are going to a movie or dinner kind of date, it’s time to take it a step further and create a very feminine and ethereal look that will wow your other half.

February might be full of heart-shaped accessories and gifts, but beyond the iconic symbol of romance, it’s also the time for the American Heart Month, a 30-day observance that aims to spread consciousness about heart problems. To help you out, we’ve gathered some essential tips for a healthier heart that can assist you in the prevention of heart failure and cardiovascular problems. This standard can change according to your location, age and genetic risk, so make sure you consult a specialist so you can know your heart.
A stressful life paves a guaranteed path to heart afflictions, so one of the first steps you should take for keeping your heart healthy is to reduce your levels of anxiety.
Choosing activities that also involve mental or physical faculties, such as making puzzles, knitting, sports, walking your pets, etc., are also great for providing relief and keeping your mind sharp. Walk to the store or your workplace, take the stairs instead of using the elevator, play with your kids in the park, dance as you do your chores, stretch your body regularly, etc. A healthy diet is essential for a healthier heart, but there are too many myths going around, making it confusing and difficult to plan a proper regimen.
Also remember that how you eat is just as important as what you eat: drink enough water and move after you eat so you keep your metabolism active. A while ago we studied some myths that surrounded 4 popular gemstones: the agate, the quartz, the amethyst and the turquoise. This stone can be found in different shades, from an almost colorless shade to yellow, orange, blue, brown or even black hues. The opal became a favored stone amongst ancient cultures, since it was believed to increase consciousness as well as help heal afflictions of the eyes. The Arabians believed opals were stones that had fallen from heaven, while later on it was mistakenly accused of being a bad luck gemstone if it wasn’t your birthstone. One of the oldest precious stones in the world, pearls have been used as decorations and enhancements in many different crafts.
Since they’ve been used by so many cultures, pearls play important roles in many different mythologies and carry a wide array of meanings.
For ancient Chinese cultures, black pearls came from dragons, while in Japanese folklore they were believed to be the tears of mythical creatures, or, in Greek mythology, the tears of the gods.
In recent years, pearls have been linked to purity, innocence and perfection, and they’re one of the favorite gemstones of brides. Due to its similarities with the color of blood, the hematite has been used in many cultures to cure blood disorders. Native Americans also used paint made with hematite as a way of gaining invincibility, since this popular gemstone is believed to provide protection and strengthening the mind as well as the heart of the person that wears it.

Since the beginning of time, humankind has admired nature and learned to coexist with its fellow creatures.

Every animal has a different connotation and importance, and it’s common to wear them as a way of showing admiration or adopting their abilities. Dragonfly: in places from Asia, dragonflies are considered a symbol of joy, while Native American cultures linked these animals to renewal, and due to their short life-span they were also considered an invitation to live life to the fullest.

According to the definition of the France Acouphènes association, chronic tinnitus is a subjective noise, heard constantly, by day and night, in the ear or the head, without any outside sound stimulus. The origin of tinnitus can be purely mechanical: an ear wax plug in the outer ear canal or a jammed ossicle in the middle ear will hinder the transmission of the sound wave to the inner ear. Tinnitus can be preceded or accompanied by hyperacusis - acoustic hypersensitivity to environmental noises that are then felt as annoying or aggressive. Tinnitus has varied effects on different people, from mere annoyance to a permanent intrusion into daily life that affects their quality of life: difficulties to fall asleep, to concentrate, anxiety that can lead to a depressive state.

Nowadays, gems are a used for improving our outfits, adding glamour and personality to any ensemble.
In Roma and Persia, these stones were used to protect the harvests; while in later cultures, they were believed to protect against skin and blood diseases.
Although it’s quite a popular and common element, its unique appearance made it a favorite amongst shamans and ancient cultures, which believed these stones were actually made of frozen water that came from the gods.
The name of this stone derives from a character from Greek mythology called Amethysta, a servant of goddess Artemis, whom was attacked by an enraged Dionysus and asked for the deity’s aid as the god unleashed his tigers to strike her. It was considered a symbol of celibacy by the Christians, they were used as protective amulets during the Renaissance, and they were employed focusing mental skills and inducing the power of prediction. Ancient cultures considered that its blueish tone gave it supernatural properties which served for protecting and bringing fortune to its wearer. In certain cultures, these gemstones were also useful for preventing injuries and improving athletic skills.
To help you out, we give you a few tips on what’s “in”, and what you can wear for any sort of outing to look great and stay comfortable.
Gathering a group of single friends and simply enjoying a movie at someone’s home is always a great plan for those who want to avoid lovey-dovey couples everywhere. If you can’t think of a better way to spend Valentine’s Day than discovering new places or trying new activities, then an eccentric experience might be a great date for you! According to statistics, heart diseases produce at least 1 of every 4 deaths, and it’s the leading cause of death amongst women, especially in America.
A great way to avoid unpleasant situations and make sure your heart is working properly, is to keep your numbers in check. Keep in mind that any change to these levels can increase your risk of developing a heart disease, so make sure you always monitor them.
A great way of achieving that is to practice fun or relaxing activities regularly, such as yoga, meditation, dancing, or a hobby that allows you to clear your mind and entertain yourself. Give up on any potentially damaging activity as soon as possible, and replace them for less problematic options. Every fashion lover out there knows the importance of precious stones, and they’ve represented different things for each culture. The word “opal” derives from the Sanskrit word “upala”, which means “precious stone”, and it’s famous for an iridescent color that gives it an otherworldly charm and glimmer.
Pearls are special gemstones, since they derive from living creatures, and their name derives from the Latin word “perna”, which means “leg”. However, one of the most beautiful legends surrounding these unique gems comes from Hindu folklore, in which pearls were considered raindrops that had fallen from the moon into the sea. Perhaps one of the most recently discovered gems in our list, the Cubic Zirconia was discovered in the 30s, yet they started being used in the 70s. Still, nowadays they’re believed to attract confidence, strength and prosperity to its wearer; and they’re great for those born in the month of April. This time, we’ll be giving you 10 wonderful suggestions that are perfect for the fashion-loving moms out there.
Luckily for you, this year is perfect for celebrating every mother’s beauty with the perfect combination of old-times nostalgia and a modernized spin on timeless trends.
Look for ethnic or psychedelic prints that will remind your mother of the 70s bohemian style. Make sure you select something that incorporates metallic accents and a unique design for a chic but sophisticated spirit and help her celebrate her glamorous side! This piece will look great on any body shape by helping create the illusion of curves, or emphasizing them! They’re the perfect complements for any ensemble, and they can be found in any presentation, from earrings to stackable string bracelets. Knee-high gladiator sandals are the perfect chic options for this season, combining comfort with an eye-catching design.
Instead of giving your mom a bouquet of flowers that will wither away in just a few days, how about giving her accessories with floral designs that will last forever? If you have a fashion-loving mom, then you can help her add a touch of style to her look with an oversized metallic cuff bracelet, or a beaded cuff bracelet. If your mom loves looking great and fashionable, then look for a printed shirtdress with ethnic or geometric patterns. But in 2015 most collections look even further back, drawing inspiration from the bohemian flair of the 70s. If you prefer something a little more demure, the shift dress with lace or a simple texture is also incredibly popular this season, and it will complement every body type perfectly. Add some edge to your look with skinny boots in monochromatic hues that can almost reach your tights. For 2015, these basics still look mostly the same, but paired with more modern outfits they will also look great and keep you comfortable this season.
Get your inspiration from the semi-sheer breezy blouse in unusual colors and embroidery for a tribal look. For a modern version of this trend, look for pants that have a high waist and are tighter at the very top, or elegant monochromatic culottes. For a modernized version of this trend, combine statement shoes with monochromatic socks in black or white.
Animals have become companions, friends and sources of inspiration, and in many cultures they’ve been worshipped as divinities or considered spiritual guides.
In many societies popular pets such as cats and dogs, wild creatures like tigers or wolves, and even unpleasant creatures such as insects, were considered omens, representations of gods, or could bestow special skills to their wearers. In Egypt, for example, scarab beetles represent rebirth, while in certain cultures these small fellows can represent security and a grounded mind.
They also represent a long memory, and they’ve been admired in many mythologies, with the Hindu god Ganesh as one of the most well-known embodiments. Combine an animal pendant with a necklace of a different length, or mix your bracelets, merging a simple animal talisman bracelet with cuffs or cute thread accessories. Complement your talisman with accessories that have the proper textures and hues, and make sure your animal amulet becomes the statement of your look.

The festival season has already begun, with the best known event taking place this weekend as Coachella’s first set of concerts take place.

Perrine and colleagues studied a group of experienced divers and the impact of alcohol consumption on their performance.
Their investigation found that the ability to perform skills while scuba diving was significantly compromised at a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.04 percent, which can be reached by a 180-pound man who consumes two 12-ounce beers in one hour on an empty stomach. The study went on to state that even at a lower BAC, situational awareness and protective inhibitions may be reduced.Recent alcohol intake (along with seasickness, traveler's diarrhea, excessive sweating, diuretic medications and air travel) is a potential cause of dehydration in divers.
Dehydration, particularly when severe, is a potential risk factor for decompression sickness (DCS). Diving can also contribute to further fluid loss through breathing dry air and diuresis caused by both immersion and cold. Some symptoms of dehydration, such as fatigue or drowsiness, can even mimic DCS, leading to possible diagnostic confusion.Alcohol ingestion may also enhance the effects of nitrogen narcosis. Elevated BAC, dehydration and nitrogen narcosis together may result in otherwise preventable accidents due to decreased problem-solving ability.Many divers appreciate a cold beer, but drinking and diving can turn a safe activity into a nightmare for both the diver and all those impacted by a rescue or fatality. Infections of the ear canal are associated with persistent moisture as well as local skin trauma, which can result from insertion of cotton swabs or other objects into the ears. Middle-ear barotrauma is neither treated nor helped by drops placed in the ear canal, as the injury exists on the other side of the eardrum. An intact eardrum forms a barrier that will prevent the drops from reaching the middle ear.
A perforated eardrum might allow drops to enter the middle ear, but this would not help and could be harmful.For divers plagued by swimmer's ear, gently rinsing the ears with fresh water after each dive may help.
Drying the ears with a hair dryer (taking care the air is not too hot) may also be helpful. If these methods are not effective, the next step is using commercially available eardrops to limit persistent moisture. Common ingredients in these formulations can include acetic acid (the active ingredient in vinegar), boric acid, aluminum acetate, sodium acetate, isopropyl alcohol and glycerin.
The acids alter pH, which retards bacterial growth; aluminum acetate and sodium acetate are astringents, which shrink tissues.
Prompt treatment may prevent further irritation or infection and may expedite a return to the water. Five months later my cardiologist ordered an echocardiogram with bubble study to confirm closure of the puncture in my interatrial septum. The cardiologist admitted to an incomplete understanding of the relevant issues but recommended I refrain from diving until closure of the hole can be confirmed or it is surgically repaired.
What can you tell me about my fitness to dive?A: Atrial fibrillation (a-fib) is one of the most common rhythm disorders encountered in clinical cardiology. Basically, the atria (upper chambers of the heart) quiver rather than contracting in an organized fashion.
This leads to a very rapid and irregular heart rhythm that can be quite uncomfortable (though some people do not experience symptoms) and may put patients at a significantly increased risk for stroke.
Risk factors for the development of a-fib are hypertension, underlying coronary artery disease, increasing age and valvular heart disease.In the past, the intention of therapy was to either slow the rate of the fibrillation (using drugs or catheter-based radiofrequency ablation) or control the rhythm with drugs.
Success rates at maintaining normal rhythm over the next year were generally less than 50 to 70 percent.Atrial fibrillation can now be treated in selected patients with catheter-based isolation of the pulmonary veins in the left atrium.
This procedure has a long-term success rate of about 80 percent, but it requires the cardiologist to puncture the interatrial septum to get from the right atrium to the left atrium.
Until they are closed the patient is left with an atrial septal defect of sorts — similar to a congenital "hole in the heart." This means venous bubbles might bypass the lungs (which act as bubble filters) and cross into arterial circulation.
Information is limited, but the increase in risk seems to be about fivefold and is likely related to the size of the hole or holes. Although that may sound like a dramatic increase, the risk of DCI in recreational diving is about 2 per 10,000 dives. Thus, a fivefold increase in this risk is only 1 per 1,000 dives — still a very low absolute risk.The primary concern with respect to one's risk of DCI isn't the hole, it's the bubble load. If you were my patient, I would support recreational diving on the richest nitrox mix allowable for your depth with prolonged safety stops using the same mix or a richer mix if your level of certification allows.
Should I be concerned about getting an infection while diving?A: Skin is the body's primary barrier against infection.
Breaks in the skin, therefore, enable skin bacteria and the abundance of microscopic life in seawater to contaminate vulnerable subdermal (beneath the skin) tissues.The diving environment can compromise skin integrity. Prolonged immersion and high humidity may alter the skin's pH and soften the outer layer of the epidermis, causing peeling (desquamation), further reducing the skin's natural defenses and enabling infection — overgrowth of bacteria or other microorganism within a wound.
For cuts and scrapes that occur in or around water (including lakes, streams and oceans) thorough cleaning with soap and water is recommended, followed by the application of a protective dressing.
