I was unsure about this product and how cool it would feel but I can say having just got it yesterday it is very nice to use! I slept very well and did not feel the need to readjust at all. I did, however, avoid laying on my pillow until just before bed just in case. Seeing as I can put this in the fridge for a little while before using it would make it a very effective alternative for an ice pack as well in my opinion. The instructions you get with this thing are not very clear on what to be doing on its setup though. I didnt know if I would be getting air and water out or just air when I was getting it ready. Luckily with just an easy youtube search you are able to find a guy who shows you just how to do it efficiently. Thank goodness for that.
All in all, I would recommend this product to others and may be getting more for the rest of my family.
On a side note, I found this to be on special from Chillow's website with a 2 for 1 offer, spent 29 dollars after shipping and handling. Not a bad deal. I wish Fry's electronics sold this device, then I wouldnt have to have it shipped and could get my employee discount on it!
I had been off birth control for about 6 months and was ready to begin trying for a baby when my cycle began going crazy. I would go 8 weeks with no period and then the next month would only go 3 1/2 week before the next period. It was pretty frustrating so I found FertilAid online and began taking it. My cycle returned to normal after the first month and the second month I got pregnant! The directions say to take 3 pills a day but I despise taking pills and could only make myself take two a day and some days I forgot as well, but they still worked and I am now pregnant after only using the pills intermittently for 2 months! The only thing I didn't like was that the pills are rather large. They have to be but I was not expecting pills that large so it was a bit of a shock. Regardless, I am so pleased with this product and would recommend it to anyone trying to regulate their cycle or to conceive.
Author/entrepreneur Ping Fu left China with only $80, a ticket to San Francisco paid for by relatives, and no command of English; the alternative was a dangerous life labeled as an 'anti-Communist' in China. Her target was the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, to study English. Her 'sin' - having written a senior thesis about the then prevalent practice of forced abortions of young girl fetuses and killings of baby girls, a reaction to China's 'one-child' policy; when the People's Daily and the international media picked up the story, the trouble started. Ping was thrown in prison and it wasn't clear if she'd be executed or not.
Ping Fu had grown up in China's 1965-68 Cultural Revolution during which 36 million were persecuted and 3 million killed or maimed. Being part of a well-educated, relatively wealthy merchant and academic family was dangerous in those times. When it began she was in the first grade - learning was labeled 'counterrevolutionary' and Mao closed all the schools. Everyone was required to stand outside each morning and salute a picture of Chairman Mao at the end of the lane she lived on. Older children then went to study and recite from Mao's Little Red Book. Soon after her brothers were sent off to forced labor and psychological indoctrination/abuse, and her father was arrested. Then Ping Fu was seized and moved from Shanghai to Nanjing - turns out she'd been born there, but sent by her mother to live with a sister in Shanghai. (Ping Fu had visited her real mother several times, but thought she was her aunt.)
Eight-year-old Ping spent the next ten years in a barracks building with her then four-year-old sister - together in a room with no bed or other furnishings. (She eventually found a discarded mattress and rickety chair that the two shared.) Bathroom facilities - a nearly overflowing stinking depression in a room used by the entire floor. Water had to be boiled, using charcoal, before drinking. Ping and the other children were all 'black elements' because they were outcasts from educated affluent parents. Fortunately an anonymous nearby source sometimes donated cooked food for the sisters - otherwise food was very poor quality and usually only every other day. Ping was often forced to humiliate herself and denounce her parents, along with other disgraced adults in the building. She sat through lectures about the bitterness of the poor nearly every other day. She was not allowed to mail letters to her parents - that would be evidence of counterrevolutionary thinking.
At age ten, Ping was raped by a group of boys, requiring 40 stitches and weeks of recovery. She was able to diminish and then end the beatings and taunting by young Red Guards by helping one with her written assignments. Soon afterwards she began factory work about an hour's walk away - six days/week for six hours/day, plus two hours each day to study Mao's teachings. She assembled radios at first (about 40 - 50 per day), then an electrician who wired rooms and repaired equipment, and ultimately operating milling and stamping machines. Fortunately her supervisor was very supportive, and her real mother moved in with the two of them and contributed her factory salary.
At the university in Albuquerque Ping earned money cleaning houses and babysitting to pay out-of-state tuition while studying first English, then literature. After learning enough English she became a waitress, bought an old car, and learned to drive. Pine switched to computer science and transferred to San Diego State University when she saw how poorly literature/journalism graduates fared, and taught herself math via checking out library books on the subject - 2nd grade on up. Her sister Hong joined Ping after 18 months and earned a master's degree in architecture. Ping soon obtained a programming job paying $15/hour, then took night on-call work because it paid double, even if there were no calls. The author reports earning nearly $80,000/year by the time she graduated two years later.
Ping was offered several jobs, chose Bell Labs in Illinois for the chance to work with Nobel prize-winners and receive financial support for further education. She quickly became disillusioned because the job was a small piece of a team of 5,000 converting the system from analog to digital. Ping took graduate math courses, then married her instructor and moved to the National Center for Supercomputing Applications in 1991 where she felt challenged again by meaningful work - predicting earthquakes, using quantum mechanics to conduct 3D image processing and create massive databases. Ping then founded Geomagic to scan objects with optical beams, then render them on a computer screen in 3D (DSSP) using software developed by her husband, went through some rough financial times, and learned to be a better manager as a result.
DSSP streamlined manufacturing for Fisher-Price dollhouses, and has transformed the hearing aid and dental tech industries. In CAD/CAM, designers create a product, employing software as a digitally enhanced pencil and drawing board; in DSSP, the image on the screen originates from the product itself. The part can then be virtually redesigned and new versions compared with the original. DSSP was used to laser-scan the Statue of Liberty with which to build a digital model of it - to help rebuild in case of terrorist attack or other damage. Another application is computer-aided inspection for eg. aircraft engine turbine parts.
Bottom-Line: Ping Fu's American dream emerged from a Chinese nightmare. Her 'Bend, Not Break' is an inspiring story.
I have loved Susan Branch's lovely hand-colored and hand-written books ever since I can remember, and always have one of her small calendars for our bedroom. When I saw the preview of this book--a chronicle of Branch's visit to England with her husband--I ordered it so fast my credit card practically whipsnapped. And this exquisite little book did not disappoint, especially as it arrived the same day as a distressing time at work. It's a loving diary of their anniversary trip to England aboard the Queen Mary II, and then their weeks visiting different areas of England including the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales, visiting friends, gardens, and historical sites, written by hand in Susan's charming manner, with photographs and incidental drawings and quotations filling each page. Each section is written with such enthusiasm that I teared up when Susan fulfilled her dream and visited the beloved farmstead of her favorite artist, Hill Top Farm, the home of Beatrix Potter. She even prefaces the story with the sweet and simple story of how she met her present husband upon moving back east after a heartbreaking divorce.
A must for Anglophiles and Susan Branch fans, and a perfect book for anyone who likes cozy corners, lovely flowers, and picturesque countryside.
