4. Preserving the Mind

Slice ePub May 22, 2014



V itamin E is critical for proper brain and nerve function, and supplements of it have been found to have beneficial effects against such brain and nervous system disorders as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and tardive dyskinesia. This chapter will cover the important roles of vitamin E in brain and nerve health and how vitamin E is believed to protect against these devastating diseases.

Vitamin E Is Important for Brain Health

The brain contains large amounts of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), the types of fats most prone to free radical damage. When the fatty acids in one brain cell become damaged, they can trigger a chain reaction in which many fatty acids throughout the brain become damaged.

Vitamin E, though, can halt this wildfire reaction before it begins: it’s the most important fat-soluble antioxidant to shield fatty tissues, like those in the brain, from damage. Taking supplemental vitamin E, therefore, helps promote optimal brain health and should lower the risk of Alzheimer’s and other degenerative diseases associated with free radical damage.

corrosion. Immediately wash, rinse, and dry items that have come into contact with any of these.

Hand wash your sterling pieces. Dry thoroughly with cotton cloths. Some sterling-handled knives are filled with tar. The heat from the dishwasher may cause the tar to expand and split the handles.

Never wash stainless and sterling together. This will cause a chemical reaction that will tarnish the sterling and corrode the stainless.

Do not use dishwashing powders or liquid containing salt as this will corrode silver.

Mother-of-pearl, ivory, and bone-handled servers should never be put in the dishwasher.

Although some sources suggest that it is safe to put sterling pieces in the dishwasher, the above warnings should deter you from this practice.


• Rub with toothpaste on a soft cloth, rinse, and polish dry.


• Rub with a paste of water and cornstarch, or cigarette ashes, or baking soda with a damp cloth. Allow to dry.

Polish with cheesecloth.


• Let silver stand in sour milk or buttermilk overnight

Building the Flex Service Layer

Slice ePub May 27, 2014

Now lets look at the Flex service layer, which comprises the classes where we define the data services well access, the definition of the service methods well access, and the logic for calling those services and what to do when the services return.

The first, and certainly the most popular, framework for Flex applications is called Cairngorm. Cairngorm was created by Steven Webster and Alistair McLeod, who ran iteration::two, a consulting company which later became the EMIA RIA practice of Adobe Consulting. Cairngorm is now an open source product distributed by Adobe Labs (

Lets get this bit out of the way too, because a lot of people hear the name and reply with a quizzical look: Cairngorm is a funny name, yes. Its named after a mountain in the Nevis mountain range in Scotland. iteration::two was using Scotland mountain ranges as code names for internal libraries, and Cairngorm stuck after it went public.
