The Necessity of Irrigation

India is basically an agricultural country, and all its resources depend on the agricultural output. Water is evidently the most vital element in the plant life. Water is normally supplied to the plants by nature through rains. However, the total rainfall in a particular area may be either insufficient, or ill-timed. In order to get the maximum yield, it is essential to supply the optimum quantity of water, and to maintain correct timing of water. This is possible only through a systematic irrigation system-by collecting water during the periods of excess rainfall and releasing it to the crop as and when it is needed. Thus, the necessity of irrigation can be summarised in the following four points:

1. Less Rainfall

When the total rainfall is less than needed for the crop, artificial supply is necessary. In such a case, irrigation work may be constructed at a place where more water is available, and then to convey the water to the area where there is deficiency of water. Rajasthan canal is one such example. It conveys water to the arid zones of Rajasthan, where the annual rainfall hardly exceeds 100 to 200 mm.

2. Non-uniform Rainfall

The rainfall in a particular area may not be uniform over the crop period. During the early periods of the crop, rains may be there, but no water may be available at the end, with the result that either the yield may be less, or the crop may die altogether. By the collection of water during the excess-rainfall period, water may be supplied to the crop during the period when there may be no rainfall. Most of the irrigation projects in India are based on this premise. The rainfall during the winter is very scanty, and hence rabi crops need artificial supply of water through the irrigation works.

3. Commercial Crops with Additional water

The rainfall in a particular area may be sufficient to raise the usual crops, but more water may be necessary for raising commercial and cash crops.

4. Controlled Water supply

By the construction of proper distribution system, the yield of the crop may be increased.

Health and Dental Insurance Quotes – Applying Online

Since 2001, large health and dental insurance companies such as BlueCross and GE Financial have offered health insurance online. As a result, individuals and small business owners have more options when purchasing insurance. Consumers can access quotes for premiums and coverage plans to find the most affordable package for their needs.

Determine Your Needs

Health and dental insurance is not just about finding the lowest premiums. You also need to factor in the costs of co-pays, deductibles, and maximum benefits. Determine how often you see a doctor and how much you can afford to pay in medical expenses. Too little coverage can set you back financially if you have an unexpected hospital bill, so make sure you have enough coverage to protect yourself.

You should also be aware that pre-existing conditions are not typically covered for the first 12 months of the health or dental insurance policy. This is common whether you receive coverage from an employer or purchase it yourself.

Start Getting Quotes

Online health and dental companies are dominated by traditional insurance companies, not shady entities. These traditional insurance companies use the internet to allow you to research their financial records, terms and conditions, and customer service practices. The internet has also increased competition between providers, resulting in more affordable options for individuals and small business owners.

Comparing Quotes

When you request a quote online for health or dental insurance, the company will give you a “base” rate quote, what an average consumer will pay in your area with average health conditions. The more information you provide, the more realistic the quote will be. “Base” quotes allow you to quickly compare plans and prices, without having to submit answers to a tedious amount of questions.

The Official Quote

To get an official quote, you will need to fill out an application with an insurance company. Typically an insurance company will require access to your health records, submitting to a medical exam, and providing answers to a detailed questionnaire. The insurance company uses the information to determine your risk to give you an official quote.

Once you have an official insurance quote, the paperwork is practically finished so you can quickly have health and dental insurance. The entire process can take up about four weeks.

Your Healthy Family: New International Health and Wellness Cente – | Continuous News


Dr. Michael Barber heads up the new International Health and Wellness Center (IHWC) and Spa that is part of the Garden of the Gods Collection.  Dr. Barber is a Cardiologist and Internal Medicine doctor who hopes the new IHWC will make Colorado Springs a health and wellness destination again.

“Medical tourism is growing in leaps and bounds.  We have a bit of a grandiose vision if you look at what the west was originally, especially Colorado Springs.  This area was well know for the tuberculosis sanatoriums for people with chronic lung disease because of the dry climate.  This was a wellness destination and that’s our our goal again is to propagate that type of mentality not only within the community, but within the region, the state and maybe even hopefully internationally.”

The center has already had a couple of clients from other countries and is open to the public.  It’s focus is on people who want to take control of their health before they begin to suffer medical problems says Dr. Barber.

“The vision being that we want to be there for people that are searching or for people that maybe have failed in the common pathway of traditional medicine. We provide an integrative approach a complementary approach that is much different than what most people are used to seeing.”

Dr. Barber heads up a diverse group of board certified physicians and specialists that includes chiropractors, dieticians and more all working together.

“With a lot of wellness doctors, you go to an internal medicine doctor you get your internal medicine. When you see a chiropractor you get your chiropractic, but there’s not really an integration or a free flow of information a free flow of care between them.  The objective here is there are no boundaries.  Upstairs the spa is totally medically oriented.  Rebecca Johnston is a certified oncology esthetician who works predominantly with breast cancer patients.”

Doctor Barber says trends these days point to people being more proactive about their health as they age.  

“You hear more people saying ‘twenty years from now, will I be the guy that will need to have my wife push me around the cruise ship in a wheelchair?’.  It’s all about people being able to get out and hike, or walk, or bike, or fish, basically whatever it is you like to do.  This area is just so optimal for outdoor activity.  The loop in the Garden to Gods is a phenomenal biking and running loop.  This this whole town, this whole area is ripe for wellness and for health.

Right now the center has been utilized mostly by club members and resort guests, but Dr. Barber feels the demand will grow for their services as the word gets out.

“I think once the word gets out the you have this place in this community, you have this beautiful environment, you have these spiritual and life changing surroundings, you put on top of that a spa, a resort, and a wellness center, that are all integrated in a unified theme, you have a very powerful unified wellness partner.”

Eating Well Daily

America is one of the most obese nations in the world. You can hardly throw a stick anywhere without it landing on a fast-food restaurants. Most of us hardly take the time to count the amount of calories we take in daily, let alone the amount of calories we burn. Children are exceptionally well at mimicking their adult counterparts. Meaning, obese parents often have children who end up becoming obese as well. However, by making a few small changes in our diet, we can eliminate the amount of bad calories we take in, maximize the amount of nutrition we put into our bodies, we can start getting on the right track for eating well daily.


For some people, their breakfast may consist of pork sausages, chicken and waffles, fried eggs, etc. These meals are often packed with calories and fats, and is a poor way to start off your day. Consuming all of those unnecessary calories end up doing more harm than good in the process. As an alternative, one should look into incorporating fresh fruit into their meals such as oranges, bananas, strawberries, etc. Whole-grain cereals with skim or soy milk is a personal favorite. Eggs whites made with olive oil instead of vegetable oil is a much healthier alternative. There’s also oatmeal, yogurts, and even protein shakes. These are just a few ideas on how you can start eating well.

Eating Well For Lunch

Lunch doesn’t have to be all about fast food and diners. For some of us, our lunch can be comparable to the amount that we eat for dinner. Still, there are much healthier options at a fraction of a cost. A fresh salad with your favorite fruits or even some fish is packed with essential vitamins that can give you the energy you need to help take on the rest of the day without feeling weighed down with “empty” calories. Also, a whole-wheat wrap with turkey, lettuce, tomato and some light dressing is much healthier for you than any SubWay sandwich. A freshly made panini is also a valid choice as well for eating well.

Eating Well For Dinner

The last meal that we eat should be the healthiest. After dinner, physical activity is generally at a minimum and most of us are probably gonna kick back and relax a little bit, before calling it a night. While it is true that the body burns calories even while we sleep, it occurs at a much slower pace. Therefore, it would not be to our advantage to ingest large amounts of calories just before going to bed. Some healthier options for dinner include whole-wheat pasta with some shrimp and spinach tossed in can make for a very healthy and delicious dinner. Baked beans with rice is also a very healthy option as well. Even a serving of chicken soup can help give you the calories you need minus the excess fat and cholesterol.
