New Use of Vicks Vaporub

WOW! I was raised, and raised my kids with Vicks. How
come I never knew this? I can't wait for my next cough.
Amazing! READ ITALL. It works 100 percent of the time,
although the scientists at the Canada Research Council
(who discovered it) aren't sure why.
To stop night-time coughing in a child (or an adult, as we
found out personally), put Vicks Vaporub generously on the
bottom of the feet at bedtime and then cover with socks.

Even persistent, heavy, deep coughing will stop in about five
minutes, and stay stopped for many, many hours of relief. This
works 100 percent of the time and is more effective in children
than even very strong prescription cough medicines. In addition,
it is extremely soothing and comforting and they will sleep soundly.
I heard the head of The Canada Research Council describe these
findings by their scientists when they were investigating
the effectiveness and usage of prescription cough medicines in
children as compared to alternative therapies like acupressure.
I just happened to tune in to a.m. Radio and picked up this guy
talking about why cough medicines in kids often do more harm
than good due to the chemical make-up of these strong drugs,
so I listened. It was found to be more effective than prescribed
medicines for children at bedtime and in addition to have a
soothing and calming effect on sick children who then went on
to sleep soundly.

My wife tried it on herself when she had a very deep constant and
persistent cough a few weeks ago and it worked 100 percent! She said
it felt like a warm blanket had enveloped her. The coughing stopped
in a few minutes, and believe me, this was a deep (incredibly
annoying - every few seconds!), uncontrollable cough, and she slept
cough-free for hours every night she used it.
If you end up sick, try it yourself and you will be absolutely amazed
at the effect.

Pass this on - especially to those with children or grandchildren.

International Funding Organizations

To All Librarians:

I wish to share this information because it is very interesting to schools that are looking for donors, grants, etc. Below is the email of Karina M. Alburo, Consultant and Assistant Publisher, Tritium Knowledge Center Publishing.

Dear All,

We are pleased to offer to NGOs, socio-civic organizations,
schools and universities, research organizations and think
tank consulting firms, foundations, government institutions,
and international organizations our Revised Edition of the
resource directory called “Directory of International Funding
Organizations, Nonprofit Organizations, NGOs, Corporate
Donors, and Relief Agencies”.

It contains over 1,000 entries of international funding organizations,
NGOs, nonprofit organizations, corporate donors and relief

It has a comprehensive index that covers all the initiatives and
advocacies that makes it easy to search for a matching funding
organization or donor for grant, technical assistance or in-kind

The index is user friendly and lists initiatives from human rights,
gender, women, children, environment, health, education,
enterprise development, art and culture, micro-finance, and
many others.

Funding organizations supporting these initiatives are listed down
together with their corresponding page(s) in the Directory.

The size of the Directory is 8-1/2" x 11" and it has 497 pages.

The Directory sells for P950.

The entries in the Directory are up-to-date and these were
gathered, verified, and edited by our team of researchers
and our editorial board.

Each organization entry lists the following useful information:

· Contact Person
· Contact Address, Telephone No., Fax No., Email Address
and Website Address
· Brief Description
· Priorities and Programs
· Type of Support
· Regions/Countries Served
· Restrictions
· Mode of Application
· Typical Size Range of Grant

This resource Directory is of immense value to organizations
who wish to implement their preferred social and community
oriented projects including promoting their advocacies when
they seek funding, technical assistance, and in-kind donation.

Examples of these projects could be poverty alleviation; education;
drug abuse awareness and prevention; teaching skills and
training for the out-of-school youth; job creation; enhancing
micro-enterprise and enterprise development; providing
basic medical and dental care to the marginalized and
the underserved; gender; women; children; mitigating and
making people aware of the risks and dangers of HIV/AIDS;
educating people on family planning; micro-credit and micro-lending;
environmental and eco-system awareness and education;
food security and agriculture productivity; helping the spread
of ICT to bridge the digital gap between the underprivileged
youth and the underserved; helping identify appropriate
technology to increase agricultural production and agro-based
manufacturing; LGBT; and many other worthy causes and advocacies that
are championed by many NGOs and other organizations.

We are also selling the Proposal Writing Guidebook,
2nd edition, 2007. It is a comprehensive book in writing
winning proposals that grant writers could use as a
ready reference and guide in crafting project proposals.

The Guidebook includes topics on LFA, Project Management,
Financial Management, Budgeting, Proposal Writing Details,
and many other important chapters that could help a proposal
writer craft a project proposal that will enhance its chances of
its being approved by funding organizations for funding.
