Keeping Healthy During the Warm Seasons

With the new seasons fast approaching, there are some people who are happy to see the snow leave. The rising temperature mean that getting outside is becoming more and more accessible to people. But for some, there are more than a few reasons to be apathetic about the upcoming seasons.

For some, allergies are a real reason to hate the spring time. Irritants like pollen and dust can make it hard to appreciate the beauty of the spring time. When it gets warmer out, things like mold and mildew can be especially aggravating to people.

Newsline asked this man about how his allergies affect his life. This is what he had to say.


Of course, there are many ways that you can help keep yourself happy and healthy when your allergies start to act up. Here are some precautions that you can take to make sure that you stay safe this spring season.

  1. Understand when pollen is active. Try to avoid staying outside for excessive amounts of time from around 10 AM to around 4 PM. This is when pollen is most likely to be active.
  2. Taking a shower after you come back from being outside is a good way to keep your indoors clean of any irritants as as well.
  3. Keeping your grass mowed and short ensures that anything caught in it will be swept away by the wind, keeping your healthy and your lawn looking fresh!




The End of TV

The newspaper industry has been on decline for a while now, due to the advantages of the many alternatives that people have turned to. Gone are the days of finger licking and shifting through pages now that there are better ways to stay up to date on current events, such as cable news. It allows reporters to report on an event immediately instead of the next day, and all you have to do is sit and watch. However, some predict even that won’t last long, due to the rise of a newer, more convenient way to check on the latest events, simply knows as the internet.

You can watch them whenever you want for a monthly subscription, and have access to everything they have instead of having to follow a specific schedule. People want convenience nowadays, and television is having trouble supplying it.

Now, cable TV does have some things going for it, like being able to air content much earlier than the internet (legally, at least), and there are many channels that have yet to make it to the internet. TV online is still in an early stage, and while it might not become the top source of entertainment right away, it’s definitely getting there. Live stream events might even be able to solve one of its few disadvantages of airing events later than TV. You get less ads, and the ones you do get can be chosen specifically for you, and have some relevance to them. This means the advantages of online entertainment don’t just apply to the consumer, but to advertisers as well. It’s just a matter of time before entertainment moves to online permanently.

I don’t believe we’ll need to throw away our TV sets. Maybe we’ll be able to simply connect our computers and phones to the TV and still be able to watch shows on the big screen. Either way, I think while big screen displays probably won’t disappear, cable entertainment likely will. Broadcast television is beginning its descent into irrelevance, while online show-hosting websites continue their rise and will soon become a normal part of everyone’s life, just as TV once was.
