Friendship Bench

grandmaI have just finished a course of counselling, that was offered by an amazing Counselling Charity in East London, and I cannot express my gratitude enough for it. To talk to a trained individual about how you feel and what is going on in life can be truly life saving. Well done to Dixon Chibanda and all the women who worked to help so many.

Here is the comic in PDF:

Internal alarm clock

“The biological clock ramps up our metabolism early each day, initiating important physiological functions that tell our bodies that it’s time to rise and shine. Discovery of this new gene and the mechanism by which it starts the clock everyday may help explain the genetic underpinnings of sleeplessness, aging and chronic illnesses, such as cancer and diabetes, and could eventually lead to new therapies for these illnesses.”
