Preview of our upcoming review: CBD Edibles from Meds Biotech!

Meds Biotech Logo

I have never tried any type of CBD products and have never tried any Marijuana Products either. I am on the autism spectrum as are my 3 kids. I am also have type 2 Diabetes. Every time that I go to a trade event or street fair or autism event I have heard about CBD Products. Now that Marijuana is also legal in Nevada I have heard more and more and more about the health benefits of CBD products. We recently were contacted by the Pr folks who work with several companies that are reputable and produce CBD products. We are going to have the opportunity to test and review a variety of CBD products in the next month. Soon we will be getting CBD Gummy Bears from Meds Biotech.

Once we have the samples from Meds Biotech we will try, review and report back on our perceptions as to what they actually do in terms of their impact on the body such as reducing back pain or anxiety. see https://www.medsbiotech.com/collections/cbd-edibles

According to Web MD:

MONDAY, May 7, 2018 (HealthDay News) — Cannabidiol (CBD) oil has become the hot new product in states that have legalized medical marijuana.

The non-intoxicating marijuana extract is being credited with helping treat a host of medical problems — everything from epileptic seizures to anxiety to inflammation to sleeplessness.

I have heard locally that some people say that CBD has helped with body pain, reducing blood sugar as well as stress.

We will test and review the products that we get and will report back as to their effects.

How does CBD Work?

CBD oil works in conjunction with the endocannabinoid system. Because CBD is a cannabinoid, it helps to supplement the body’s natural cannabinoids, in turn strengthening the endocannabinoid system. In other words, the endocannabinoid system is a vast system of cannabinoid receptors. Furthermore, the body itself produces its own natural cannabinoids. CBD oil or cannabidiol, in general, is known as a phytocannabinoid (plant-based cannabinoid) which can help to supplement the endocannabinoid system (ECS).

CBD edibles are usually found in something sweet, like CBD gummies. It’s a great way to get your daily dose of pharmacist-formulated CBD oil, especially if you are an on-the-go person who doesn’t have time to relax with an oil or something else.

Turmeric is an excellent addition to your CBD oil, which is why we put in in our CBD capsules. Some studies show that turmeric helps as a possible antioxidant, an anti-inflammatory, and with heart health.

We are looking forward to testing and reviewing the samples that we receive to get an idea of how they work and their impact on the body.

Making Homes Autism Friendly

A Special Contribution from Lucy Wyndham:

For people on the Autism Spectrum, the world is a difficult place, full of sensory overload, unpleasantness, bullying and frustration. School, work and social events are all difficult situations to handle for people with ASD because of their unusual sensitivity to any kind of sensory assault, such as loud noises, bright lights and crowds. Technology can be particularly hard to deal with for people with ASD, as the noises, lights and stimulation associated to it can be too much to handle.

A home is a sanctuary for everyone, where everyone feels a sense of serenity, safety and peace of mind. It’s even more important for a person or child diagnosed with autism and understanding how to make an autism friendly home is very important.

We have already looked at how to make work spaces autism friendly; let’s look at how to make living conditions ideal for those who are on the Autism Spectrum.

Remodel the Sensory Environment

Making a home autism friendly isn’t easy, as it does require some renovating and some lifestyle changes; it can be challenging for siblings and parents who also have needs and would like to invite friends, make noise, choose new foods or otherwise complicate life. Family life is not always calm and changes are sometimes inevitable.

Avoid using fluorescent lights, which can induce anxiety and stress; soft, natural lighting is better for mood and attention. Certain colors of light – such as blue – have also been shown to help with creativity and calmness.

Another good idea is to have one area of the home filled with bright colors and technological activities for the whole family, such as a television and a stereo, and another area with soft colors, blank walls, quiet activities such as books and soft textures.

Technology Can Help

When refurbishing your home to make it accessible for autistic people, technology can be a great help. For example, a white noise machine in the bedroom can be an excellent way to calm down and stimulate sleep while reducing sensory overload. For maximum efficiency, limit the use of electric light after sunset.  Noise reducing headphones can be another solution to reduce sensory overload, whereas normal headphones can be used by other members of the family to listen to music or use other noisy devices such as video game consoles.

Certain types of portable technology, such as smartphones, computers and tablets, can also be useful and can provide an excellent tool to keep in the house. Many people with ASD are stimulated by computers and technology if used in the correct way. Today, there are thousands of applications which provide assistive technology to help communications. These can benefit people with ASD as they stimulate learning and communication while responding always in an expected manner. A computer or app is predictable, as the user knows exactly what the computer’s response will be when a specific action is completed, unlike interactions with people. This consistency is comforting and feels safe to people with ASD.

Keep an Eye Out for Stress

Remember that a person with ASD might not always be able to communicate exactly what the problem is, so a little detective work might be necessary. By remaining always attentive, it is possible to identify the problem and brainstorm simple solutions to fix the issue.  

Making Commercial and Working Spaces Autism Friendly a Guest Post by Lucy Wyndham

Making Commercial and Working Spaces Autism Friendly

Special Contribution by Lucy Wyndham!

Our world is becoming ever more fast paced, especially from the point of view of technology. Whilst it’s easy for many people to simply adapt and move forward, for some people change is hard. If you’re someone who is on the Autism Spectrum, the workings of technology can be easy to get to grips with, but often, the noises, lights and stimulation associated with them can be absolutely unbearable, especially in a commercial or workplace setting where frequent communication and verbal interaction can also provide daily challenges.

Is there anything at all that can be done to make such spaces ASD friendly?

Facilitate your office space

Many people find they can work in an environment with background chatter, strip lighting and other extraneous noises from equipment like air conditioning machines or fans. People on the ASD spectrum may find their ability to work in such conditions is either impaired or totally impossible.

Often all that is needed are lighting options with dimmer switches and computer monitors that can be fixed with shading screens. Accommodations made by employers such as quiet work spaces, or escape rooms that the ASD person can go to for time out can make all the difference, too.

Offering equipment like noise cancelling headphones can really help in situations where there is little other chance of background noise being cut totally.

Routine and structure play a key role in all of this too. Unexpected noises, lighting changes and even things like meetings over-running or taking place unexpectedly can cause issues. Autistic people need to be informed of changes and anything that will affect how their day runs as soon as possible to avoid meltdowns or shutdowns. Making sure there is a noticeboard well placed in the office with timetables and clearly written instructions can help.

What shops can do to help

Some commercial shops and malls have been adapted and now offer “autism friendly hours” now, in which shoppers who are on the ASD spectrum can go in and know that the place they are visiting will have been made quiet, there will be no background music playing, little in the way of distracting lighting and background noise will be low.

This practise can also be carried over into the workspace too, with employers offering the same kind of adjustments, so that non-ASD people can see how their ASD counterparts benefit from having a quiet, low lit office.

Recognize that people with ASD have incredibly special skills to offer

ASD comes with it’s challenges, but for every challenge there is a positive and people on the spectrum have a lot to offer workplaces. For instance, Software company SAP recognize that their software testers need to have a keen eye for detail and an ability to focus specifically on one project for a long time. If their needs are met in terms of the adjustments they require in their working space, they can not only perform to a very high standard but actually become loyal, hardworking and trustworthy employees

My ode to Thanksgiving 2016!

 

 

I would to take a moment to give thanks to my Family, and followers. I hope to finally achieve my goal of helping people with autism soon.

Our interest stems from the fact that I have asperger’s as do my children. I have a vested interest in making a difference.

Communicotool-A New Communication tool for non-verbal autistic folks!

Autistic daughter inspires communication app for non‐verbal people After seeing non‐verbal 8‐year‐old Reinnah take her tablet everywhere she went, her father created CommunicoTool to help her talk with him. Now updated to version 2, it launches in the US to help non‐verbal children acquire, develop and use language skills. San Francisco, CA – March 11 – ​One in 68 children has Autism Spectrum Disorder, and roughly 25% of them cannot speak. These and non‐verbal children with other developmental disorders must rely on visuals, often flash cards or drawings, to communicate. Tablet app CommunicoTool 2 makes it easy for a non‐verbal child to find their words. With specialized visual and audio tools wrapped into one, these children have a library of pictures for expressing themselves, instructions for daily tasks set in simple sequences of images, and can have the entire experience customized to their particular needs. “Like a wheelchair for someone who can’t walk, CommunicoTool 2 lets children overcome their speech challenges,” says Frédéric Guibet, CommunicoTool’s founder and CEO. “Except that the app goes further, over time helping them to learn the words through repetition, and develop their language skills.” Guibet himself has a daughter who can’t speak as a result of her autism. He got the idea for the company in 2012 after noticing she would rarely go anywhere without her tablet.“My Reinnah, like many other autistic kids, thinks in a more visual manner than verbal,” he continues. “The tablet’s big, colorful screen was clearly the key to talking with her. Creating this app was the best way to get a direct line of communication with my daughter. Now I want to help other families live the same experience.” The first version of the app launched in France with two main features: a library of images to help people pronounce words and construct sentences, and a “Doloris module” to help communicate pain with a picture of a body to point to, and a scale to help show how badly it hurts. Its second version, debuted today at SXSW, adds a “Sequence” features that lets a caretaker arrange sequences that explain how to do something, like brush your teeth. This includes a timer, for things like the brushing itself, that need to be done for a set amount of time—a difficult concept to communicate without words. The whole experience can be personalized. Julie Laurent for example, a CommunicoTool employee with two autistic daughters of her own, created a to‐do list to help her daughter know what to do during library time at school. Her tablet shows a picture Julie uploaded of her daughter lining up with her classmates, then a picture of the library, then one of her listening to a story, then one of her taking a book, and finally one of her checking out a book with the librarian. With this routine, she learns what is expected of her and becomes more independent. Coming soon are the ability to build more complex sentences, and synchronization between devices to keep customization consistent between parents, teachers, specialists and other caregivers. The app is available for tablets running iOS or Android. The app is free for the first month, then costs $2.99 per month or $59.99 for life. For more information, visit communicotool.com or contact Courtney Sims at courtney@oxygen‐pr.com or 1 (951) 565‐6016. ### About CommunicoTool Created in late 2012 by Frédéric Guibet, CommunicoTool is a French startup specialized in communication applications, originally under the CTEXDEV masthead. Frédéric, who has an autistic daughter, quickly realized that the tablet was to his child what a wheelchair is to someone affected by motor disabilities. He decided to create communication apps for tablets aimed at people, like his daughter, who faced challenges from being non-verbal!

Trinus3d Exciting NEW Crowdfunded 3D Printer!

Professional 3D printing now costs hundreds instead of thousands Starting March 30, Trinus will be available on Kickstarter for just $299.

SAN FRANCISCO, California (March 25, 2016) — Trinus is the first truly affordable 3D printer for everyday professional use. Currently, desktop 3D printers fall roughly into two camps. For under $500, you can buy a 3D printer suited for fun experimentation — one that is more toy than work machine. For $2000 or more, you can buy a printer that is suited for more serious prototyping and fabrication. If you want high-quality printing but are on a tight budget, you are better off getting your prints from a third party. Industrial designer Bojan Smiljanic fell into this camp. As a creator of consumer products, he used to send all of his prototype designs to third-party 3D printers such as Shapeways. He did not want The Trinus 3D Printer/Laser Engraver is the world’s first professional-grade 3D printer made from all metal parts for under $500 to spend thousands of dollars for a personal machine that might break down, fulfill only some of his needs, or require an upgrade after just a few years. However, relying on third-party printers had its challenges too. Once, Smiljanic ordered two prints of a prototype for $100. He waited 20 days for the prototypes to arrive, only to find that they were printed with plastic that was too stiff. This type of experience was not uncommon. Last year, Smiljanic joined Kodama, Inc., a small San Francisco-based startup looking to build a high-quality 3D printer that met the needs of professionals and hobbyists alike. They came up with Trinus, a fast, reliable, high-resolution 3D printer that can be transformed into a laser engraver within 60 seconds.


 

Unlike most other 3D printers under $500, Trinus does not contain any cheap plastic parts — it is made entirely of premium metal. “I wanted to make a machine that I would use as a product designer,” says Smiljanic. “With its speed, precision, and versatility, Trinus fits the bill. The prototype printer in my office has been running 24/7 since November, with no technical failures yet.” Starting March 30, Trinus will be available on Kickstarter for $299. The first 100 backers will get a Super Early Bird price of $199. Trinus can be converted from a 3D printer to a laser engraver in 60 seconds. Built to last Constructed entirely out of high-end aluminum and steel, Trinus is the world’s only all-metal 3D printer under $500. More than a printer Trinus has a “transformer” design: Its 3D printing head can be taken off and exchanged with a laser engraver. By the end of 2016, we aim to launch a third head — which is why we named our product Trinus, the Latin word for “triple.” We are currently working on designs for a dual extruder (for mixing multiple filaments), a paste extruder (for printing with viscous substances such as chocolate), and a CNC router (for cutting wood and metal). No filament restrictions In addition to traditional PLA filament, Trinus can print with exotic materials, such as flexible, polycarbonate, wood, and aluminum filaments. Through our Kickstarter we are providing premium Polymaker filament at an exclusive discount. Stability and precision To make Trinus we scaled down the mechanics of industrial-grade machines. Built with a single-axis slider and robust internal components, Trinus does not require constant recalibration. Its parts stay in place. High print quality Trinus maintains quality printing up to print speeds of 70 mm/sec but is capable of running at a maximum speed of 150 mm/sec. With a minimum layer height of 50 microns, its prints come out clean and smooth. Hassle-free assembly Since Trinus has a simple modular design and only 11 units, someone with no technical experience can put it together in 30 minutes. Other, more expensive printers can have hundreds of pieces and require a full day to assemble. Intuitive software Trinus comes with its own proprietary Pango software, which includes many built-in features and works twice as fast as other slicers. However, you’re not tied to Pango — Trinus is compatible with any other software package or gCode. Enclosure and HBP We offer many options to ensure you can optimize Trinus to your needs, including an enclosure case and a heated bed platform that lets you print ABS and PC. To deliver you the best product, we teamed up with three partners • Flextronics, one of the biggest names in the world for electronics and manufacturing • Polymaker, one of the best and most innovative filament suppliers on the market • Panowin, a 3D printing company with 3+ years of experience in the industry and more than 20 patents filled Tech specs • Print volume: 120mm x 125mm x 125mm • Print speed: up to 70 mm/sec | Moving speed: up to 150 mm/sec • Minimum layer height: 0.05mm (50 microns) • Print material: 1.75mm PLA, ABS, PC, flex, wood, aluminum • OS supported: Windows, Mac • Connectivity: USB, SD Card (autoprint) • Power consumption: 60W • Weight: 9.8kg About Kodama, Inc. Kodama is a small San Francisco-based team of entrepreneurs, designers, and engineers working on 3D printing technology. We created the Trinus 3D Printer to bring high-quality and affordable 3D printing to every creative soul.

I am an army vet, and my dad was an airforce vet. I feel the need to help my fellow vets as well as those folks with autism. We want to help folks with autism and vets get jobs, appreciate technology and we want to use tech to raise funds to help people as well !

Our primary focus is autism education and using tech to help those with autism.autism image

However, Since  I am a veteran who has struggled in my life to get work, to pay bills and get employment at times too. Therefore 1/3 of my efforts will also go to help fellow veterans get work, enjoyment out of life and to make a place for themselves. We want to make a difference for those with autism like myself and my kids and veterans as well.

If anyone can help us to help local veterans organizations or autism please do so:
