Estimated Time: 2 hours

Serves: Makes 1 Apple Pie

Crust Ingredients: 2 cups all-purpose flour I teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon sugar 6 tablespoons cannabutter (marijuana butter) 6 tablespoons shortening 6 to 8 tablespoons ice water

Crust Instructions:

1. Warm the cannabutter in the microwave for 10 seconds to soften it (not melted).

2. Combine all other ingredients into a large bowl. You may use your hands or a Dough Blender here.

3. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator until ready to use.

Apple Filling Ingredients:

5 Tart Peeled Apples 1 Cup Sugar 2 Tablespoons Flour 1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon 1/4 Teaspoon Salt 1 Tablespoon Cider Vinegar 1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice

Apple Filling Instructions:Peel and slice apples and soak in water with a tablespoon of lemon juice for 10 minutes. Mix everything except the apples in a large bowl.Remove apple slices from water and place in the bowl with with the other ingredients. Mix them around in order to coat the apples as much as possible.
Putting it all together:Divide dough into 2 equal portions. Roll one portion into a flat circle 1/8 inch thick.Place and shape into baking pan. Put apples in crust and top with some butter to enhance the flavor of the apples (you may use cannabutter here if you'd like). Roll out the remaining portion of dough and place on top of pie. Use the back end of a knife to press the top to the bottom crust. Wrap tinfoil over the pan so it covers just the other portion of the top crust, so the edges do not burn. Bake at 400°F for 55 minutes or until the crust is a golden brown. Enjoy!

Serve with hot apple cider! Mmm.

It's still illegal in most areas of the world, but the cannabis plant boasts some incredible benefits – not just as a healing medicinal, but as an eco-friendly source for clothing, energy, and even food.

But the legalization of the plant is still a highly debated topic – despite the many case studies that support its use in treating cancers, including Leukemia. Social stigma is now the predominant factor inhibiting its use and legalization, but that perception is being changed by the many pro-cannabis supporters speaking out from various fields.

Insight into how THC (the main psychoactive component of the cannabis plant) cures Cancer is explained by molecular biologist, Dr. Christina Sanchez, in the video above. A scientist at the Compultense University in Madrid, Spain, she relayed her long-time studies and enlightening findings with Cannabis Planet TV.

Cannabinoids refer to any group of related compounds that include cannabinol and the active constituents of cannabis. The compounds activate cannabinoid receptors in the body, and in effect the body itself produces compounds called endocannabinoids. These play a major role in many processes within the body that help create a healthy environment.

But one does not have to go out of their comfort zone to experience the effects – as cannabis has been shown to treat cancer without any psychoactive effects.

In many situations, cannabinoids have been proven to reduce Cancer cells as they have a great impact on the rebuilding of the immune system. While the rate of success still varies (depending on the strain of the plant used), many patients are experiencing a profound reduction of cancer in a short period of time.

A lot of debate surrounding the medicinal use of the plant is based on the perception that cannabis must be smoked for it to be beneficial; this is actually false, and could be a relief to some. Contrary to popular notion, smoking the weed does not assist a great deal in treating disease within the body, as therapeutic levels cannot be reached through such method. Instead, using the oil from the plant or eating it is the best way to go about obtaining the necessary ingredients from the cannabinoids.

The Earth offers many remedies to assist the human body in re-gaining balance. As mankind has evolved and implemented modern ways of survival, a disconnect with natural living was created, and in effect, many issues have rapidly manifested in the last few hundred years. But deriving plant-based medicines and treating food, as well as lifestyle habits, as preventable medicine will ensure that body balance is regained.

Social acceptance of the use of the cannabis plant is growing, although it is still held in different regard than chemotherapy. But as its medicinal properties are more deeply explored and shared, the world can continue to re-shape its opinion and allowance of its use.

While clinical trials are lacking, surveys of patients have helped researchers identify the most common reasons for using medical marijuana.

Recently, a team at the VA Palo Alto Health Care System surveyed 217 patients at a dispensary in California to find out what cannabis might be helpful for.

These were the results (patients could choose more than one):

The survey also revealed a much longer list of uses, but reported less commonly. The entire list of benefits reported by patients were:

"HIV/AIDS, nightmares, arthritis, glaucoma, cancer, attention deficit disorder/attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, neuropathy, asthma, seizures, bipolar disorder, Crohn's disease, epilepsy, hepatitis C, emotion regulation, restless leg syndrome, broken back/spinal cord injury, diabetes, hypertension, irritable bowel syndrome, multiple sclerosis, premenstrual dysphoric disorder, sciatica, recovery from surgery, alcohol over-consumption, allergies, borderline personality disorder, boredom, breathing, symptoms related to being burned, carpal tunnel, tendinitis, chronic fatigue syndrome, cyclical vomiting syndrome, dermatomyositis, digestions/polyps, Dupuytren's contracture, fibromyalgia, former lateral epicondylitis, gastroparesis, Grave's disease, hydrocephalus, intestinal bleeding, lack of motivation, leg cramps, loss of arm, neuralgia, post-viral refractory fatigue, tapering off opiates, tenosynovitis, anger and mood swings."

Contrary to popular belief, it appears it's not just pain that marijuana can be good for.

Researchers at the Medicinal Chemistry Institute of the Spanish National Council for Research (CSIC) believe a class of chemicals found in marijuana, called cannabinoids, hold promise in improving the lives of Alzheimer's patients.

The team, led by Concepción Pérez, PhD, explained last month in the European Journal of Medicinal Chemistry why cannabinoids are "very attractive candidates" for new treatments.

Cannabinoids act on specific pathways in the brain called cannabinoid receptors, which are responsible for the effects of marijuana. According to the team, previous studies on the role of cannabinoids in Alzheimer's suggest a number of benefits.

Between the two cannabinoid pathways, CB1 activity seems to preserve cognitive function while CB2 activity may help protect and repair the brain.

"Taken together, these results suggest that CB1 receptor agonists may interrupt the mechanism of excitotoxicity and CB2 receptor agonists may suppress neuroinflammation and lead to plaque removal."

Cannabinoids can target not only the endocannabinoid system, they note, but other disease-related systems as well.

The most widely prescribed drugs today help boost levels of acetylcholine, with the assumption that a lack of acetylcholine underlies Alzheimer's. However, these drugs have proven to be ineffective.

More current research instead points to chronic inflammation as the cause of Alzheimer's.

The team is currently working on developing CB2 agonists that can prevent the build-up of beta-amyloid plaque in the brain – a key marker of the disease.

The build-up of plaque is believed to block neuron signaling and trigger cell death through inflammation.

Likewise, researchers in the U.S. have identified cannabinoids as promising candidates for preventing inflammation in Alzheimer's.

Gary Wenk, PhD, a professor of neuroscience, immunology and medical genetics at Ohio State University, told TIME that in his 25 years of researching ways to combat brain inflammation, "cannabinoids are the first and only class of drugs that have ever been effective."

Published in the American Journal of Public Health, a group of economics researchers found that medical marijuana laws led to a sharp drop in suicide rates among young men.

The results seem to support the belief that marijuana can be used to cope with stressful life events, says study co-author Daniel Rees, PhD, professor of economics at the University of Colorado Denver.

"In keeping with what advocates of medical marijuana would argue, that is, if you're depressed, if you have to cope with a stressful situation, marijuana actually helps."

Rees notes that some research suggests marijuana works as an anti-depressant, but the evidence isn't conclusive. On the other hand, medical marijuana laws have also been linked to less alcohol consumption – particularly among young men.

Less alcohol consumption following medical marijuana legalization could also explain the drop in suicide rates, he says.

But the study was the first time researchers have looked at medical marijuana laws and suicide rates. Rees believes more research needs to be done to be sure.

"The relationship really does seem to exist. But we don't have a lot to say about mechanism."

Rees, along with co-authors D. Mark Anderson of Montana State University and Joseph Sabia of San Diego State University, compared changes in annual suicide rates between 1990-2007 of states that legalized medical marijuana and states that did not.

Suicide rates seemed to decline overall among the 12 states that passed laws during this period. But the only statistically significant decrease was in men 20-39 years old.

The team's previous research has also shown a strong correlation between medical marijuana laws and reduced traffic fatalities.

Featured information: Windows App Certification Kit; Windows Software Development Kit (SDK) for Windows 8; Download Visual Studio 2012 Update 4; The Visual Studio 2012 Shell (Isolated) Redistributable Package contains the run-time binaries that are required to deploy an application that's based on the Visual Studio 2012 Shell (Isolated); Disable Program Compatibility Assistant in Windows 7 and Vista.

I have made a modified installer for the Windows Phone 8 SDK that will run on Windows 7 x64. I installed visual studio before I installed the SDK, but it shouldn't matter as this will install visual studio express for windows phone, if needed.

To install the SDK, perform the following:

1. Download the Windows Phone 8 SDK iso file. You can get it at this LINK
2. extract the contents of the ISO to the location of your choosing.
3. Download the modified "WPexpress_full.exe" that is attached to this post and use it to replace the one in the iso.
4. run setup as normal.

Everything will install and work.*
*I was getting an error when I launched the "Application Deployment" app. Once I updated Visual Studio 2012 to Update 3, it fixed it. EVERYTHING WORKS!!

Just wanted to add everything works 100%...I was able to recompile and deploy some xaps I wrote on my win 8 PC to my phone with no issues!


Source: xda-developers

N.B. from TurismoAssociati:

Here is the LINK for the Visual Studio 2012 Update 4 (number 3 was updated)

You might, as we did, encounter two error messages that will stop the installation:

- Windows Software Development Kit Tools for Windows Store file sdksetup missing. LINK HERE for the download page.

- Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 Shell (Minimum) Vs_isoshell.exe Isolated missing. LINK HERE for instalation file.

You might need to Disable Program Compatibility Assistant in Windows 7 and Vista LINK HERE.

Before you submit your app for certification and listing in the Windows Store, use the Windows App Certification Kit to test your app and make sure it's ready to go. Here is the LINK with the solution.

P.S. Very important: Visual Studio 2012 will fail to install after October 7, 2013

When you try to install Visual Studio 2012 after October 7, 2013, you receive one of the following error messages:
Unable to locate package source

Microsoft Web Deploy 3.0
A required certificate is not within its validity period when verifying against the current system clock or the timestamp in the signed file.

In tratamente, medicina chineză ia in calcul si factorul suflet. Spun chinezii că in vindecare trebuie să participe sufletul bun. Medicina chineză sustine că un om cu suflet rău nu se vindecă. Chinezii sustin că inima este sediul sufletului. Există si un punct pe corpul omenesc prin care se ajunge la suflet. Acest punct este denumit de chinezi vama sufletului si reprezintă un punct energetic aflat la două laturi de deget de incheietura pumnului.


Reamintim spusa filozofiei chineze că sediul sufletului este in inimă, dar chinezii mai sustin că fiecare organ are un suflet, un duh. [Tot de la bătrâni, mai ales babe, aflasem asta, dar liber cugetătorismul m-a prostit. Când mă supăra ceva, din mine, mă rugam de acel organ si - minune ! - el se calma, ce-i drept, temporar.]
Ficatul este sediul sentimentului de mânie, sediul supărării, ficatul este generalul care elaborează strategia, dar vezica biliară este organul care dă curajul de a lua decizii. Un om cu deficit de energie pe ficat este un om care se enervează des.
In mod paradoxal, inima este afectată când sentimentul de bucurie este in exces.
De altfel, componenta Yang este cea a bucuriei, iar contrariul Yin inseamnă tristete. Dar aceste contrarii energetice se transformă unul in altul cănd ajung la limita excesului. Yang cănd atinge excesul se transformă in Yin si invers. Dacă un om se va bucura foarte tare, va urma o perioadă de tristete. [Stări de mine trăite-n nenumărate dăti, încât de pe la 45 de ani mi-am impus să nu mă mai bucur excesiv! Ci, cu prudentă...]
Când pancreasul, dar si stomacul prezintă deficite de energie, omul acela este tot timpul ingrijorat, nemultumit, el despică firul in patru.
Când plămânul se află in suferintă energetică, oamenii sunt tristi, melancolici.
Insă rinichiul dă durata vietii. El este rezervorul de energie al organismului. In rinichi se află energia ancestrală. Părintii lasă descendentilor mostenirea de energie in rinichi. Cand alt organ se află in sărăcie energetică, rinichiul ii donează energie.
[De aceea, te si simti ca "frânt de sale", éreinté, cum ar spune frâncii, uneori, nu doar la solicitări fizice.]

Supărarea este una din cele mai răspândite încălcări ale legilor universului, care poate determina mari neplăceri în viata, atât a celui pe care te superi, cât si în propria ta viată.
Potrivit legii bumerangului, tot ceea ce emitem în atmosferă, din punct de vedere vibratoriu: gânduri, vorbe, dorinte, fapte, sentimente, se întorc la noi producând efecte perturbatoare în câmpul nostru energetic .
De aceea nimeni nu poate face rău altuia, fără să plătească...

Oricând aveti gânduri negative despre o persoană, să meditati în permanentă pentru sănătatea ei...
Când ne gândim la cineva, se creează instantaneu o punte energetică între noi si omul la care ne gândim. De aceea, orice gând rău reprezintă un atac energetic care aduce un prejudiciu omului respectiv. Astfel ne atacăm si ne omorâm unul pe altul în mod inconstient, de multe ori fără să ne dăm seama de acest lucru.

Gândirea noastră dispune de cea mai puternică fortă creatoare din întregul univers.
Gândul este cel care aduce pacea si linistea în sufletul nostru.
Gândul este cel care atrage binele sau răul în existenta noastră.
Toate gândurile emise plutesc în aer ca niste mine amenintătoare pentru a lovi pe cel ce le-a produs.

In cuplu
Neintelegerile într-o relatie de cuplu vin din nevoia de a-l controla si domina pe celălalt.
Fiecare încearcă astfel să aibă controlul si să rămână deasupra întregii situatii.
Când controlezi o altă fiintă îi iei energia, îti faci plinul pe socoteala altuia.
Astfel devii vampir energetic.
Răcirea relatiilor dintre doi parteneri se datorează cresterii nivelului de agresivitate interioară.
Lipsa de compatibilitate duce la lipsa de comunicare...
Lipsa de comunicare duce la dezastru...
Lipsa de comunicare prin iubire duce la ură...

O agresivitate subconstientă fată de bărbati / femei se transformă într-un program de autodistrugere.
Dacă doi parteneri abuzează fizic sau emotional unul de celălalt, atunci ei NU merită să rămână împreună.
Cu cât este mai puternică dependenta de persoana iubită, cu atât mai numeroase sunt pretentiile noastre fată de ea.
Dependenta naste agresivitatea, iar agresivitatea produce boala.
Dependenta de dorinte, frica, depresia si supărarea atrag gelozia.
Orice expresie dură, afirmată pe un ton categoric poate provoca un rău atât siesi cât si unui alt om.

Ori de cate ori cădem în acest prost obicei, ne deconectăm de la sursă si intrăm în suferintă.
Cearta, mânia, nerăbdarea emit în tăcere o mare fortă destructivă.
Numai prin iubire poate seca izvorul răutătilor...

În dragostea omenească trebuie întotdeauna să existe o detasare de omul iubit.

Cu cât aveti mai multe pretentii, iritări si nemultumiri fată de omul apropiat, cu atât mai mult creste dependenta de el.
Dependenta de valorile materiale ne va omorî încetul cu încetul si spiritul si sufletul.

Despre problemele personale
Să nu vorbiti despre nenorocirile trăite, pentru că ele pot prelungi durata lor...
Când nu vorbim cuiva despre problemele noastre, noi ne îndepărtăm de ele...
Îndepărtarea de ele este primul pas pentru depăsirea acestora.
Esential este când vorbiti despre problemele si emotiile dvs. să NU căutati milă sau compătimiri...
Dacă aveti o mare supărare sau tristete, încercati să nu aduceti sentimentele acestea acasă.

Iesiti în stradă cu deosebire în locurile înverzite si plimbati-vă...!
Nu faceti din casa dvs. o groapă de gunoi energetic.
Dacă locuiti de câtiva ani si ati saturat spatiul cu regrete, supărări si spaime, amintiti-vă momentele în care v-ati certat si supărat, asezati-vă în acel loc, iertati, anulati agresivitatea fată de iubire, meditati...!

Este mai bine să plângeti,decât să urâti...
Dacă n-ati reusit să vă învingeti pe dvs. însivă, agresiunea se acumulează în mod inevitabil.
Atunci când plângeti, agresiunea apărută se distruge.

Munca NU trebuie să ne omoare, ci să ne dezvolte...
Înseamnă că supraîncărcările nu trebuie să fie permanente si în fiecare ocupatie să găsim plăcerea. Dacă nu există plăcere, orice activitate se poate transforma într-o suprasolicitare si va dăuna sănătătii.
Încercati sa identificati cat mai corect care este munca care v-ar aduce satisfactii prin insasi existenta ei in viata dvs.
Nu cautati neaparat satifactii materiale. Nu căutati plată, nici laudă si nici o răsplată, orice ati face. Săvârsind ceva bun noi pretindem imediat recompensă. Aceste dorinte aduc ca rezultat suferinta.
Cu cât veti intensifica acest tip de pretentii, cu atât va creste nivelul de agresivitate si se va întări programul de autodistrugere.

Când cineva te jigneste, nu te răzbuna pe el, nu-l urî si nu te supăra pe el, întrucât această jignire este un dar de la Dumnezeu.
Dacă n-o accepti, urmează ca purificarea sufletului să se înfăptuiască prin boli si nenorociri, iar dacă nu esti pregătit nici pentru aceasta, ea vine prin moarte.

Această formă de purificare ne este dată prin intermediul celor apropiati, de aceea în măsura în care reusim să-i iertăm, în aceeasi măsură sunt posibile schimbări interioare de profunzime.
Se cuvine să iertăm nu numai în gând ci si cu sufletul. Cel mai mult ne leagă de trecut supărările neiertate. Iertând un om care ne-a jignit sau ne-a supărat, ne putem vindeca de o boală gravă.

Cum dăruiesti asa primesti...!
Mediteaza în permanentă ca toti cei din jurul tău să fie fericiti.

The use of marijuana as a medicine remains controversial, yet marijuana's active ingredient is regularly prescribed in both Canada and the U.S.

In fact, pills that contain THC, like Marinol (dronabinol) and Cesamet (nabilone), are often recommended as substitutes for marijuana.

But while it's easy to think of the treatments as equal, research highlights some important differences.

Time of Onset
A study conducted last year at the New York State Psychiatric Institute was the first ever to compare a THC pill, dronabinol, with smoked marijuana for managing pain.

In the study, smoking a joint took full effect within 15 minutes. Dronabinol, on the other hand, took 60-90 minutes to reach its peak.

As Florida physician Dr. Heather Auld points out in a recent article, a shorter time of onset is better for pain patients.

Duration of Effect
While marijuana and dronabinol performed about the same in pain reduction, the study found dronabinol's effect to last longer.

In this case, experts say a longer-acting treatment is preferable.

Dose Flexibility
The biggest advantage of smoking marijuana is the ability for patients to self-adjust dose. Due to the shorter time of onset, patients can easily adjust dosing by taking additional puffs when necessary.

On the other hand, the delay in onset of THC pills, combined with their extended action, makes it difficult and dangerous for patients to self-adjust dose.

Studies show that both smoked marijuana and dronabinol suffer from inconsistent bioavailability, which also makes it difficult for doctors to predict dosing. This makes the flexibility offered by smoking even more beneficial.

Also, while it might be inconvenient to roll a joint every couple hours, vaporizers are widely preferred by doctors, and provide an easier way for patients to take marijuana throughout the day.

Side Effects
A study concluded that patients get just as high from taking dronabinol as they do from smoking a joint.

On the other hand, some believe dronabinol's delay in onset could make it less subject to abuse.
