Ziarah Seorang Sahabat Lama

Pada lewat senja 23 November 2014, seorang sahabat lama saya, Wan Sofian Sori (bekas pensyarah Universiti Malaysia Kelantan)(UMK) yang tinggal di Pulai Chondong, Machang, Kelantan, datang mennziarah saya sekeluarga. Beliau datang bersama isteri dan dua anak lelaki serta seorang cucu. Alhamdulillah, selepas sekitar 41 tahun terputus hubungan, kami diketemukan semula melalui satu laman aplikasi telefon bimbit. Terima kasih, Wan, kerana meluangkan masa menjengok kami di Taman Wangi, Gua Musang (saya namakannya "FCC"), Kelantan.. Jumpa lagi...

Doa dibaca sewaktu mendapat ilmu atau ketika cuba mengingatkan sesuatu ilmu sama ada yang susah atau senang.



Rasulullah SAW pernah membaca doa ini apabila turun 10 ayat pertama surah al-Mukminun, iaitu: “Allahumma zidna wa la tanqusna wa akrimna wa-la tuhinna wa a’tina wa-la tahrimna wa aathirna wa-la tu’thir 'alayna wa-‘rdina wa ‘rda ‘anna.”

Ia bermaksud: “Ya Allah, tambahkanlah buat kami dan jangan Engkau kurangkan. Muliakanlah kami dan jangan kami dihina. Berilah buat kami dan jangan ditahannya dan pilihlah kami dan jangan Engkau biarkan serta redailah kami dan redailah pula usaha kami.” (Ibnu Kathir, III: 237)

Doa ini digalakkan untuk dibaca sewaktu mendapat ilmu atau ketika cuba mengingatkan sesuatu ilmu sama ada yang susah atau senang.

Diabetes Battle: How High Blood Sugar Levels Led to Full-Blown Diabetes



Tom Hanks’ Diabetes Battle: How High Blood Sugar Levels Led to Full-Blown Diabetes
By The Editors at Sharecare | Healthy Living – Sat, Nov 2, 2013 1:31 AM MYT
By: Darria Long Gillespie, MD, MBA
Tom Hanks is the most recent celebrity -- following in the footsteps of Halle Berry, Paula Dean and Randy Jackson -- to reveal that he has type 2 diabetes. Appearing on Late Show with David Letterman in early October, he told the talk show host that after a long history of high blood sugar numbers, his doctor told him he'd "graduated" to full-blown diabetes. Hanks said that controlling his weight is one way he's battling the disease.

Keeping diabetes under control can make your RealAge younger! Take the RealAge Test.

What Is Diabetes?
Diabetes occurs when your body can no longer handle glucose the way it's supposed to do. Glucose is a simple sugar that is the basic fuel of the body. Foods that supply glucose include fruits, vegetables and carbohydrates. The body's digestive system converts these nutrients into glucose, which is absorbed into the blood stream and transported to the body's cells. But to get the glucose into your body's cells, you need insulin. Unfortunately, sometimes the body either stops producing insulin (type 1 diabetes) or can't produce enough (type 2 diabetes). The result? Not enough insulin, so glucose stays in your bloodstream, without getting into the cells where it can function.

Is Diabetes Bad?
When blood sugar is high, it causes other systems to malfunction. Diabetes doubles your risk of heart disease and heart attack; you're also apt to experience complications following a heart attack (heart failure, angina). There's also an increased risk of stroke, neuropathy (painful nerve dysfunction), vision changes and even erectile dysfunction.

Get tips for managing diabetes from the American Diabetes Association
Why Do People Get Type 2 Diabetes? The disease is caused when your body becomes "resistant" to insulin, so it has to produce more and more -- and eventually, it's unable to produce enough. The most common causes of this are genetics, obesity and level of activity. For instance, a sedentary person who has a BMI (Body Mass Index) greater than 25 has over a 50% chance of developing type 2 diabetes. Contrast that to someone sedentary with a BMI less than 24 -- their chance is around 12%.

What Should You Do If You've Been Diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes?
Often, my patients view this as a health "sentence" -- their parents had it, they're going to have it. Not so! Unlike type 1 diabetes, for which we have no "cure" (people with type 1 diabetes have to take insulin their entire lives), research has shown that changing your lifestyle can significantly impact your diabetes -- even to the point that you can stop taking diabetes medication altogether. Two main ways to beat diabetes are:

Talk to your doctor about diabetes
Weight Loss: If you're overweight, not only does shedding extra pounds reduce your risk of diabetes, it also impacts cholesterol, high blood pressure and your overall risk of heart disease. The key is to be realistic -- don't try to drop 30 pounds immediately! In one study, a weight loss of just 7% of body weight reduced the rate of diabetes onset by 58%.

Exercise:
If you're more couch potato than gym rat, consider becoming more active to find a happy medium. A combination of both cardio and strength training and (those little bursts of high intensity seem to be especially beneficial) has been shown to reduce blood glucose levels. The key? Exercise should be at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic exercise per week to see the greatest benefit. What's moderate intensity? You're working hard enough that you can talk, but not sing, during your aerobic workout, which could be as simple as brisk walking if you're just starting out.

How Can I Prevent Diabetes?
The same treatments that can treat it (diet, exercise) can prevent diabetes in the first place. In one study of diabetes prevention, researchers had to stop the study early, since prediabetic patients that modified their lifestyle (through diet changes and reaching a 7% weight loss goal) cut their risk of developing diabetes in half. Diabetes is one area in which we know that weight loss, diet and exercise changes make a difference. Don't view diabetes as inevitable, or a death sentence -- as I tell every one of my patients that seems resigned to the diagnosis -- we can change this diagnosis. So, take charge, and let's give diabetes the boot.

Every cloud has a silver lining



Every cloud has a silver lining
Every bad situation has some good aspect to it. This proverb is usually said as an encouragement to a person who is overcome by some difficulty and is unable to see any positive way forward.
Origin
John Milton coined the phrase 'silver lining' in Comus: A Mask Presented at Ludlow Castle, 1634
I see ye visibly, and now believe
That he, the Supreme Good, to whom all things ill
Are but as slavish officers of vengeance,
Would send a glistering guardian, if need were
To keep my life and honour unassailed.
Was I deceived, or did a sable cloud
Turn forth her silver lining on the night?
I did not err; there does a sable cloud
Turn forth her silver lining on the night,
And casts a gleam over this tufted grove.
'Clouds' and 'silver linings' were referred to often in literature from then onward, usually citing Milton and frequently referring to them as Milton's clouds. It isn't until the days of the uplifting language of Victori's England that we begin to hear the proverbial form that we are now familiar with - 'every cloud has a silver lining'. The first occurrence that is unequivocally expressing that notion comes in The Dublin Magazine, Volume 1, 1840, in a review of the novel Marian; or, a Young Maid's Fortunes, by Mrs S. Hall, which was published in 1840:

As Katty Macane has it, "there's a silver lining to every cloud that sails about the heavens if we could only see it."
'There's a silver lining to every cloud' was the form that the proverb was usually expressed in the Victorian era. The currently used 'every cloud has a silver lining' did appear, in another literary review, in 1849. The New monthly belle assemblée, Volume 31 include what purported to be a quotation from Mrs Hall's book - "Every cloud has a silver lining", but which didn't in fact appear in Marian, which merely reproduced Milton's original text.
