Cleopatra of Egypt
Yang Guifei of China

When we visited the world’s most productive land of okra in a rural area in Kami, Kochi Prefecture , Japan , the young and old all look very healthy. When we asked their secret in having good health in that area, they graciously answer “okra”.
 
Okra has a long history, with its beginnings in Egypt where it is cultivated before the time of Cleopatra. The okra plant spread to many parts of the world during the Atlantic slave trade. During World War II, the shortage of coffee beans made them use okra seeds as a substitute for coffee. This incident made the word “okra fever”. Since then, okra’s popularity never disappeared from local markets to convenience stores throughout the world and throughout the year.

Nutritional Information

Okra contains vitamins A and C and is a good source of iron and calcium. It also contains starch, fat, ash, thiamine and riboflavin. No wonder, Cleopatra and Yang Guifei maintained their beauties.

Health Benefits of Okra

1. The superior fiber found in okra helps to stabilize the blood sugar by curbing the rate at which sugar is absorbed from the intestinal tract.
 
2. Okra’s mucilage binds cholesterol and bile acid carrying toxins dumped into it by the filtering liver.
 
3. Okra helps lubricate the large intestines due to its bulk laxative qualities. The okra fiber absorbs water and ensures bulk in stools. This helps prevent and improve constipation. Unlike harsh wheat bran, which can irritate or injure the intestinal tract, okra’s mucilage soothes, and okra facilitates elimination more comfortably by its slippery characteristic. Okra binds excess cholesterol and toxins (in bile acids). These, if not evacuated, will cause numerous health problems. Okra also assures easy passage out of waste from the body. Okra is completely non-toxic, non-habit forming, has no adverse side effects, is full of nutrients, and is economically within reach of most individuals unlike over-the-counter drugs.
 
4. Okra fiber is excellent for feeding the good bacteria (probiotics). This contributes to the health of the intestinal tract.
 
5. Okra is a supreme vegetable for those feeling weak, exhausted, and suffering from depression.
 
6. Okra is used for healing ulcers and to keep joints limber. It helps to neutralize acids, being veryalkaline, and provides a temporary protective coating for the digestive tract.
 
7. Okra treats lung inflammation, sore throat, and irritable bowel syndrome.
 
8. Okra has been used successfully in experimental blood plasma replacements.


9. Okra is good for summer heat treatment.
 
10. Okra is good for constipation.
 
11. Okra is good in normalizing the blood sugar and cholesterol level.
 
12. Okra is good for asthma. Okra’s vitamin C is an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, which curtail the development of asthma symptoms.
 
13. Okra is good for atherosclerosis.
 
14. Okra is believed to protect some forms of cancer expansion, especially colorectal cancer.
 
15. Eating okra helps to support the structure of capillaries.
 
16. Some information shows that eating okra lowers the risk of cataracts.
 
17. Okra is good for preventing diabetes.
 
18. Okra protects you from pimples and maintains smooth and beautiful skin. We understand the reason why Cleopatra and Yang Guifei loved to eat okra.
 
There are other medicinal uses of okra, like its protection against trans fats.
 
I myself planted about 25 stems of okra in my backyard garden throughout the year for over 20 years now. I can pick up about 20 pieces of okra pod every morning. All okra pods are consumed by my family. There are hundreds of recipes that can be done. You can either: cut it raw and mix with vinegar and pepper; cut it raw and mix with mayonnaise; steam, cut, with mayonnaise dressing; or, cook with stew or soup.
 
Okra is easy to grow anywhere during summer season in cold countries and throughout the year in tropical areas. You can even plant it in a container garden at the terrace in condominium buildings.

Inventor of PYRO-ENERGEN, the author, Mr. Takano himself picks up Okra in his backyard garden 
To tell you the truth, I did not know that okra seed was used as a substitute for coffee beans during World War II. I have about 500 grams of okra seeds, so I roasted one-half of it using an iron cast pan, and pulverized it. I made okra coffee with it, and it tasted like real coffee although it was darker in color. When I offered the okra coffee to my staffs and visitors who did not know the real thing, they replied “Oh, you got a new blend of coffee, taste is good”. I blended it with real coffee, too. It tastes all right. We do not know, however, what nutrients okra coffee gives.

1. Kingda Ka: the world’s tallest and fastest roller coaster
Fun & Info @ Keralites.net
Arms down, head back and hold on. With only 28 seconds, the Kingda Ka may not be very long, but it’s bound to leave you wide eyed and twitching. Located at Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey, USA, it’s the tallest and fastest roller coaster in the world. The train is launched by a hydraulic launch mechanism to 128 miles per hour (206 km/h) in 3.5 seconds. At the end of the launch track, the train climbs the main top hat tower, reaching a height of 456 feet (139 meters)! At a cost of US$25 million, the Kingda Ka opened to the public on May 21, 2005, was closed several times for different technical problems and was also struck by lightning in early May 2009.
2. Dodonpa: the highest launch acceleration, 2.7 g

Fun & Info @ Keralites.net

Dodonpa messes with your mind from the moment it starts, as passengers are forced to wait anxiously in a darkened tunnel before the countdown to an insanely fast acceleration out of the tunnel, screaming down the track and then getting fired up and over two humps which have 90 degree drops on each side. When the Dodonpa was opened in 2001, it was the fastest roller coaster in the world. As of 2010, it is not the fastest but still has the highest launch acceleration at 2.7 g. It is 52 meters (170 feet) tall, and has a launch speed of 172 km/h (107 mph), which is reached in less than 2 seconds. Located at Fuji-Q Highland, Fujiyoshida, Yamanashi, Japan, its hill goes straight up, down a hairpin curve, and then goes straight down.
3. Steel Dragon 2000: the world’s longest track length, 8,133ft

Fun & Info @ Keralites.net

Built by Morgan Manufacturing, this gigacoaster at Nagashima Spa Land Amusement Park in Mie Prefecture, Japan, opened in 2000 — “The Year of the Dragon” in Asia. It debuted only months after Millennium Force and surpassed the Cedar Point coaster as the world’s tallest complete-circuit coaster. You might be used to getting on a roller coaster and stepping off much sooner than you hoped – scream, scream and it’s all over. Not on this ride – the Steel Dragon is quite the endurance coaster. It’s so long that you might actually deplete your ability to scream by the end of the record breaking 8,133ft long track, the one record it still holds.
4. Top Thrill Dragster: Kingda Ka’s arch rival

Fun & Info @ Keralites.net

Kingda Ka’s arch rival, the Top Thrill Dragster was the first “Strata Coaster”, loosely defined as a complete circuit coaster that is over 400 feet tall. Located at Cedar Point Amusement Park in Sandusky, Ohio, USA, it reaches speeds of up to 120 miles per hour (190 km/h) and when it first debuted in 2003, it set three new records: tallest, fastest and steepest drop on a roller coaster; all of them later claimed by the Kingda Ka.
5. Thunder Dolphin: Tokyo’s most terrifying ride

Fun & Info @ Keralites.net

Known for its unique design around buildings in central Tokyo’s Dome City Attractions amusement park, the Thunder Dolphin starts off with a dizzying 218 foot lunge at a steep 80 degree angle. You then race around the track at speeds in excess of 80 mph making this impressive 3,500-foot long, 26-story tall a mental joyride. The ride passes through both a hole in the LaQua building, as well as through the Big-O, the world’s first hubless Ferris wheel. Thunder Dolphin’s maximum speed is 130 km per hour, or 80 miles per hour.
6. Tower of Terror: the fastest and tallest flat ride in the world

Fun & Info @ Keralites.net

Located at Dreamworld in the Gold Coast, Australia, it is currently the fourth fastest roller coaster in the world, but it has been reported to be the fastest and tallest roller coaster on a tower. The six ton passenger vehicle, called the ‘Escape Pod’, is electro-magnetically powered and rapidly accelerates its passengers to 160.9 km/h (100 mph) in seven seconds. The track then pitches up 90 degrees to the vertical, with the passengers pulling 4.5Gs. Riders are weightless during the entire vertical section of the ride for about 6.5 sec, 3.25 seconds going up and 3.25 seconds falling back down. The car then pitches back down to horizontal and hurtles back into the station where it comes to a rapid stop. There has been some controversy over whether Tower of Terror is a roller coaster, since the car goes up a tower only to fall back down again. Because of this, the ride is found on many lists of the tallest and fastest roller coasters.
7. Millennium Force: most G-force at one time (4.5 times Earths gravity) and the longest track in the US

Fun & Info @ Keralites.net

Also located at the Cedar Point Amusement Park in Sandusky, Ohio, USA, the Millennium Force was the first roller coaster to exceed 300 feet in height back in the year 2000, and was briefly the tallest closed circuit roller coaster in the world, before being surpassed by the roller coasters already mentioned. At the tallest section you’ll endure a stomach-churning 300ft drop; passengers rush and plunge along the track through two separate dark tunnels and two crazy 122 degree overbanked turns that produce a gut-wrenching G force. It is still the longest steel roller coaster in the United States with 6,595ft of steel track and goes up to 93 mph (150 km/h), lasting 2 minutes and 20 seconds, and being capable of handling up to 1,600 riders per hour.

At the end of the launch track, the train climbs the main top hat tower, reaching a height of 456 feet (139 meters)! At a cost of US$25 million, the Kingda Ka opened to the public on May 21, 2005, was closed several times for different technical problems and was also struck by lightning in early May 2009.
2. Dodonpa: the highest launch acceleration, 2.7 g

Fun & Info @ Keralites.net

Dodonpa messes with your mind from the moment it starts, as passengers are forced to wait anxiously in a darkened tunnel before the countdown to an insanely fast acceleration out of the tunnel, screaming down the track and then getting fired up and over two humps which have 90 degree drops on each side. When the Dodonpa was opened in 2001, it was the fastest roller coaster in the world. As of 2010, it is not the fastest but still has the highest launch acceleration at 2.7 g. It is 52 meters (170 feet) tall, and has a launch speed of 172 km/h (107 mph), which is reached in less than 2 seconds. Located at Fuji-Q Highland, Fujiyoshida, Yamanashi, Japan, its hill goes straight up, down a hairpin curve, and then goes straight down.
3. Steel Dragon 2000: the world’s longest track length, 8,133ft

Fun & Info @ Keralites.net

Built by Morgan Manufacturing, this gigacoaster at Nagashima Spa Land Amusement Park in Mie Prefecture, Japan, opened in 2000 — “The Year of the Dragon” in Asia. It debuted only months after Millennium Force and surpassed the Cedar Point coaster as the world’s tallest complete-circuit coaster. You might be used to getting on a roller coaster and stepping off much sooner than you hoped – scream, scream and it’s all over. Not on this ride – the Steel Dragon is quite the endurance coaster. It’s so long that you might actually deplete your ability to scream by the end of the record breaking 8,133ft long track, the one record it still holds.
4. Top Thrill Dragster: Kingda Ka’s arch rival

Fun & Info @ Keralites.net

Kingda Ka’s arch rival, the Top Thrill Dragster was the first “Strata Coaster”, loosely defined as a complete circuit coaster that is over 400 feet tall. Located at Cedar Point Amusement Park in Sandusky, Ohio, USA, it reaches speeds of up to 120 miles per hour (190 km/h) and when it first debuted in 2003, it set three new records: tallest, fastest and steepest drop on a roller coaster; all of them later claimed by the Kingda Ka.
5. Thunder Dolphin: Tokyo’s most terrifying ride

Fun & Info @ Keralites.net

Known for its unique design around buildings in central Tokyo’s Dome City Attractions amusement park, the Thunder Dolphin starts off with a dizzying 218 foot lunge at a steep 80 degree angle. You then race around the track at speeds in excess of 80 mph making this impressive 3,500-foot long, 26-story tall a mental joyride. The ride passes through both a hole in the LaQua building, as well as through the Big-O, the world’s first hubless Ferris wheel. Thunder Dolphin’s maximum speed is 130 km per hour, or 80 miles per hour.
6. Tower of Terror: the fastest and tallest flat ride in the world

Fun & Info @ Keralites.net

Located at Dreamworld in the Gold Coast, Australia, it is currently the fourth fastest roller coaster in the world, but it has been reported to be the fastest and tallest roller coaster on a tower. The six ton passenger vehicle, called the ‘Escape Pod’, is electro-magnetically powered and rapidly accelerates its passengers to 160.9 km/h (100 mph) in seven seconds. The track then pitches up 90 degrees to the vertical, with the passengers pulling 4.5Gs. Riders are weightless during the entire vertical section of the ride for about 6.5 sec, 3.25 seconds going up and 3.25 seconds falling back down. The car then pitches back down to horizontal and hurtles back into the station where it comes to a rapid stop. There has been some controversy over whether Tower of Terror is a roller coaster, since the car goes up a tower only to fall back down again. Because of this, the ride is found on many lists of the tallest and fastest roller coasters.
7. Millennium Force: most G-force at one time (4.5 times Earths gravity) and the longest track in the US

Fun & Info @ Keralites.net

Also located at the Cedar Point Amusement Park in Sandusky, Ohio, USA, the Millennium Force was the first roller coaster to exceed 300 feet in height back in the year 2000, and was briefly the tallest closed circuit roller coaster in the world, before being surpassed by the roller coasters already mentioned. At the tallest section you’ll endure a stomach-churning 300ft drop; passengers rush and plunge along the track through two separate dark tunnels and two crazy 122 degree overbanked turns that produce a gut-wrenching G force. It is still the longest steel roller coaster in the United States with 6,595ft of steel track and goes up to 93 mph (150 km/h), lasting 2 minutes and 20 seconds, and being capable of handling up to 1,600 riders per hour.

A major update has been made to Audio4fun’s best sellers. All Voice Changer Software products now officially support Windows 8.

img-300436-6755-orig.png

Audio4fun announced today that Voice Changer Software 7.0 is now fully compatible with Windows 8. As always the program offers a full range of audio editing features designed to alter the human voice by modulating, manipulating and reproducing a wide range of vocal qualities. The program is unique for its "nickvoices", small data files stored and used to reproduce a specific human voice – the voice of a friend, historical personalities, celebrities, movie personas, and more. The most powerful feature of the program is its ability to apply all adjustments in real time, so that there is no record/wait/rewind/listen. You hear all changes immediately, and can alter them immediately through the use of an easy, point-and-click interface. It can also be used in online conversations, whether just chatting or in a multi-player game, or in any video chat that supports sound. There are two other versions of the software, 7.0 being the basic version; both a Gold and a Diamond version are available as well, and details can be found on their website www.audio4fun.com .

Their website also provides a wealth of free material for use with their programs, including more "nickvoices" that users can apply immediately to their own work; there are tutorials, examples, and a lot of just plain fun on the site and its has a robust and growing online community as well.

Audio4fun said they will continue to develop the software that they will continue to issue updates and improvements. Some of those improvements were based on user feedback, an aspect of the program’s development of which Audio4fun is quite proud. "We love our users, and we depend on and really appreciate all the great feedback they provide," said Chris Redfield, Director of Global Marketing, "It’s their energy and enthusiasm that spreads across the entire organization. It’s so much fun!"

Audio4fun also offers other audio, music and video morphing programs. Learn more at www.audio4fun.com
