Sparkling Glassware Bar Maid

Read entire post: Sparkling Glassware  Bar Maid

Bar Maid Corporation, known for its electric glass washers and bar supplies, has introduced the GP-100 Commercial Glass Polisher, an essential appliance for achieving sparkling, crystal clear glassware… fast.

Glassware that is dull and covered in water spots not only steals the wow factor from your place setting or beverage service, it can give the illusion that a glass is not truly clean and that is the last thing you want your customer to remember about their experience.

Polishing glassware by hand is time consuming for employees. That is why Bar Maid, the company whose electric glass washers the hospitality industry has trusted for more than 50 years to clean their bar glassware, now offers a solution you can count on to make glassware sparkle. The Commercial Glass Polisher utilizes a warm air blower and soft microfiber polishing heads to simultaneously dry and polish all styles and sizes of glassware inside and out. Users can polish up to 350 glasses per hour, saving time and labor cost over hand polishing and reducing the potential for sanitation issues and costly glassware breakage.


Designed for hotels, caterers, bars, restaurants, event venues and glassware rental companies, this glass polishing machine is lightweight and portable with a small footprint that fits just about anywhere. The removable polishing heads are hand or dish machine washable and easily reinstalled without tools. A polishing head specifically shaped for champagne glasses is also available.

Hospitality businesses using the Commercial Glass Polisher report a better result than hand polishing and that increased efficiency would allow them to quickly recoup their investment in the glass polishing machine.

Okinawa Diet - How to make the Okinawa diet

A little less than a year ago, we knew the news of the death of  Jiroemon Kimura , the oldest man in the world with 116 years.His predecessor in the title,  Misao Okawa,  did it at the age of 115 years. By their names we can find out that they are Asian, specifically Japanese. And it is not surprising, since Eastern countries have completely different habits of life and food than we can find in the West, it is believed that this combination of a healthy lifestyle and a partially vegetarian diet are the key to longevity and of the state of health enjoyed by Asians. Today we are talking about the Okinawa Diet, which could well be the secret of eternal youth.

The Okinawa Centenary Study with Dr.  Makoto Suzuki  at the head, focused on one of the  most important blue areas on  the planet, the city of Okinawa, which, in addition to having the highest life expectancy, its inhabitants enjoy vitality and present a youthful and energetic state. In addition, this area has the lowest rate of diseases of metabolic origin  (diabetes, cholesterol, cardiovascular diseases ...)  and the cancer rate is almost zero.

Characteristics of the Okinawa diet

  • It is a healthy and balanced diet, which contributes around 1500 kcal.
  • In the pyramid of this diet we find vegetables, algae and cereals.
  • Moderate consumption of pork, rice, soy products and fish is acceptable.
  • The meals have a very low caloric density , that is, despite seeing overflowing dishes, their caloric intake is very low.
  • It is an ideal diet for weight loss regimens, since it is a satiating diet.
  • More than a third of the total vegetables are consumed raw , so the vegetables retain all their properties: antioxidants and vitamins and minerals.
  • The usual ratio is to consume 6 pieces of vegetables and a piece of fruit.
  • Canola  oil or rapeseed oil is used  as the main fat.

What foods are allowed in this diet if I want to lose weight


This diet, in addition to making you enjoy an incredible state of health and vitality during old age, can make you lose weight. If this is your end, I leave you a list of the foods allowed during the regime.

  • Fruits:  limit your consumption to a single piece a day. You can use pineapple or payaya that have slimming properties.
  • Eat blue fish three times a week,  preferably blue fish, food rich in Omega 3
  • You can consume lean cuts of pork  once a week
  • Consume 7 portions of preferably whole grain  ; and that at least 3 of them are rice.
  • One of the main drinks of this diet is green tea, characteristic because it has not fermented preserves all the properties of tea, water and rice wine  (also in the form of seasoning)
  • In this diet, the two medicinal spices par excellence of Asian popular wisdom: turmeric and ginger could not be missing either.

How can I change my western life to be more long-lived

We always think it is too early to  "start taking care of ourselves"  but the younger we are when we acquire the good habits the less it will cost us to adapt to them, here are some tips to reach 90 years of good health.

  • Your diet should be healthy and natural. You can follow the Mediterranean diet by reducing the consumption of meat and increasing that of raw vegetables.
  • Walk 30 minutes a day:  You will stay active and absorb the vitamin D needed for your bones.
  • Carpe Diem:  Live happy and enjoy the small pleasures of life.
  • Always learn:  Keep your mind active, learn a language, a new recipe ...
  • Do not self-medicate and avoid medications as much as possible
  • Get a check up a year:  you can always detect early and stop a disease.
  • Sleep at least 8 hours:  good sleep prevents us from suffering from heart disease.

Secrets to ward off disease

There are people who always maintain a good state of health and hardly get sick, in their lifestyle and in their food we can find the secrets of their "superhealth"

  • Living without stress  because numerous studies have shown that episodes of stress interfere with the proper functioning of the immune system, which is why episodes of anxiety expose us to viral and bacterial infections. Walking for 20 minutes decreases anxiety and helps manage episodes of stress. And you will also get in touch with nature, another way to disconnect and restructure our mind and body.
  • Moderate caloric intake  a healthy and balanced diet lengthens life and prevents us from suffering diseases, for example excessive and uncontrolled intake causes major overweight risk factor in cardiovascular diseases.
  • Staying active  not only we talk about physical activity, but also about the brain; since people who also read or do crossword puzzles, sudoku ... have a healthier and disease-free life.
  • Some medicinal plants  how echinacea favors and strengthens the immune system, also dispensing with the medication whenever we can.  EYE! medicines save lives every day and are necessary but we should get rid of the habit of pulling ibuprofen and paracetamol, replacing infusions or complexes of natural plants.
  • Purify:  making purifying cures with diuretic or diuretic juices in capsules helps us eliminate toxins and make our liver and kidneys work better. You can also try to follow a depurative or detox diet.
  • Sleeping well:  the hours of sleep and rest are directly related to our physical and mental recovery in a total way.

Menopause in Asia

There are many differences between East and West, especially if we look at the eating habits and routines on both sides of the globe. It is believed that this is one of the reasons that Asians do not have such aggressive symptoms during menopause.

In Asia, sports are understood in a different way than we know in Europe or America, in Asian countries  women practice yoga and Tai-Chi regularly,  these exercises maintain a more stable physical and mental state throughout their lives. In addition this type of sports where the game enters the body and mind, maintain more stable levels of hormones  (estrogen and progesterone).

The key is in the consumption of phytostrogens  these plant pseudohormones are found in foods such as soybeans and goji berries; so in Asia the consumption of them increases to 60 milligrams, for the 15 that are consumed in the Mediterranean area. The ideal intake is around 50 milligrams, that is, the closest intake is Asian.

It is not only attributed to food and lifestyle that Asians have a lighter menopause, but to the environment of Asian and Western cities, since many Asian emigrants settled in countries like the United States, go on to experience a menopause similar to the western ones. It is believed that pollution in the most industrialized cities has a negative impact on health, especially for women.

Anyway, it is believed that the secret to avoid the annoying symptoms is to lead an active life from youth, a diet in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and proteins of plant origin such as soy and its derivatives  (tofu, seitan ..)

In short, despite the fact that the diet is clearly different in the East and the West, it is not only the diet that is responsible for eternal youth in one of the blue areas of the planet; but also to the lifestyle and environmental factors that surround us.

Twenty Reasons for Swimmers to Eat Chocolate

Read entire post: Twenty Reasons for Swimmers to Eat Chocolate

Chocolate is often labelled as a cheat food, guilty pleasure, or rich dessert but these categorizations neglect its health benefits. To do chocolate some justice and give swimmers a couple excuses to eat this tasty treat, we’ve come up with 10 unexpected benefits that accompany chocolate consumption. The more chocolate is processed, the fewer health benefits accompany the product. For this reason, health experts often recommend consuming varieties of unsweeted, raw dark chocolate. However, processed chocolate can still bring a superfood boost, provided there aren’t too many additives.


1. High in Antioxidants

Flavanols, naturally-occurring compounds that occur in plant foods like cocoa, act as antioxidants and help to counteract free radicals in the body.

2. Blood Pressure Benefits

Dark chocolate has been shown to lower blood pressure in people with high stress levels or chronically elevated blood pressure.

3. Lower LDL Cholesterol

Eating dark chocolate on a regular basis has been attributed with reduction in LDL cholesterol by as much as 10%.

4. Natural Anti-Depressant

Chocolate is rich in seretonin, a natural anti-depressant. Eating chocolate also stimulates endorphin production, creating feelings of pleasure and satisfaction.

5. It May Fight Cancer

Chocolate has been found to inhibit cell division and reduce inflammation in patients which may be correlated with lower risks of cancer and reduced cancer severity in patients.

6. Prevents Tooth Decay

Theobromine, a natural component of chocolate, prevents tooth decay by eliminating the oral cavity bacteria, streptococcus mutans, that contributes to tooth decay.

7. Longer Life

A Dutch study followed 200 men over 20 years and found that large chocolate consumers lived longer than those who did not. Harvard used similar methods and found the same results. Learn more about chocolate’s secrets of longevity here.

8. Less Disease

The same Harvard and Dutch studies have attributed chocolate to lower disease contraction and consequential longer lifespans.

9. High in Magnesium

Cacao is extremely high in magnesium, an important mineral that helps to regulate the digestive, neurological, and cardiovascular systems.

10. Brain Health

Researchers at Johns Hopkins University found that red wine and dark chocolate can protect the brain following a stroke by shielding nerve cells from further damage.

11. Higher Intelligence

A study at California’s Salk Institute found that epicatechin, a chemical in chocolate, may improve memory.

12. Cough Relief for Swimmers

An ingredient in chocolate may actually be a more effective cough medicine than traditional remedies, a new study suggests. And not only that, a UK-based research showed that the cocoa-derived compound had none of the side effects associated with standard drug treatments for persistent coughs.

13. Sun Protection

London researchers found that after 3 months of eating chocolate with high levels of flavanols, their subjects’ skin took twice as long to develop reddening associated with the beginning of a burn.

14. Reduced Stress

Swiss scientists found that when people with high anxiety levels ate an ounce and a half of dark chocolate every day for two weeks, their stress levels were significantly lower and the metabolic effects of stress were partially mitigated.

15. Diabetes Prevention

Theobromine, which occurs in high levels in chocolate, has been found to quiet coughs and soothe throats without the traditional side effects of medication.

16. Insulin Regulation

Frequent consumers of chocolate have been correlated with higher insulin regulation and response.

17. A Healthier Heart for Swimmers

In a 9-year Sweedish study of more than 31,000 women, those who ate one to two servings of dark chocolate each week were  33% less likely to experience heart failure.

18. Healthy Fats

Chocolate contains Oleic acid, a healthy monosaturated fat that is also found in olive oil.

19. It Improves Vision

Chocolate improves blood flow particularly to the brain and the retina, allowing consumers to experience better shortterm vision.

20. Improves Blood Flow

Cocoa has anti-clotting and blood-thinning properties that work in a similar way to aspirin, which can improve blood flow and increase circulation.

In 1961, after 17 years spent first as a worker and then as a technician at various manufacturers of slicers, Corrado Lanza decides to take risks and leaves his job to start his own business in Cavaria. 

While his wife Fausta and a couple of workers assemble the slicers in the laboratory near the house, Corrado travels on his scooter with two or three sample machines firmly tied to the luggage rack to visit the shops in the north and east of Milan where he always places good orders. 

From time to time, a friend lends him a small car that he fills with slicers to go to the Veneto, another good source of new customers and orders.

This marketing view-and-sell technique soon ceases, as orders begin to arrive from abroad as well. 

One of the most powerful and long-lasting success stories, word of mouth, has become a source of new markets for Corrado's machines. 

Now FAC exports more than 50% of its products throughout Europe, North America and South America, Asia and South Africa.

In 1973, Corrado and Fausta decided to move into their first real factory, a 200-square-meter building, which soon expanded to 200, then 500, then 1000 square meters. 

Although the FAC now relies on trusted contractors, its current 4500 m² assembly facility and 500 sqm warehouse have become too small and still need to be expanded.
The FAC is in the hands of a united family. 

With an eye to the future, Corrado called his family members to help him, teaching his work scrupulously from the beginning. 

It was a good school, because the new generation succeeded successively in all sectors (administration, marketing, personnel, research, quality control, etc.)
