The Last House on the Street by Diane Chamberlain
The Last House on the Street - Diane Chamberlain

I listened to this book on a Playaway as I worked outside and it makes an excellent audio book.  The book alternatives between the year 2010 and 1965.  I liked listening to both sides of the story and seeing how the two stories came together, how the characters transitioned through the years and how history impacted the story.  This is a story about race and how race can bring out the best and the worst in individuals. 


The year is 2010 and they had returned to Kayla’s hometown.   This was supposed to be their dream house, a place where they could put down some roots.  So why is it, that only Kayla and their young daughter, were moving into this enormous, beautiful home today?


It was labeled an accident. This “accident” had left Kayla a widow and now, as she takes Rainie through the house, she thinks about this event and how it changed their lives.  Kayla is warned by a mysterious woman not to move into the house and she has numerous “incidents” to scare her away from this new development yet she stays.  Just down the road, Elle has returned home to take care of her aging parents.  Kayla and Elle cross paths and although it would be nice to have someone close to talk with, they know their conversations feel forced.


Meanwhile in 1965, Ellie wants to volunteer over the summer instead of working in her father’s pharmacy.  I love that her aunt was her motivation and that she’s committed to her cause although she experiences a lot of negative response about what she feels so passionate about.  She’s motivated by SCOPE and MLK and she’s bound-and-determined to help those less fortunate.   What an eye-opening experience this is for her!  She never knew what life was like beyond her own world and she finds that she has a lot to offer even when those in her own family don’t feel she does.  I was frustrated with Ellie a few times as I felt she gave in and I couldn’t understand why she bailed after everything she had seen and done; it just didn’t make sense.


I enjoyed the intensity as Ellie went outside her normal boundaries and she did what her heart told her to do.  I loved how the two stories came together and how the women in the hook were different yet they were alike.  I couldn’t stop thinking about this book when I had to lay it down, for what did their futures look like?.  This was a great read for me – I really enjoyed it!

Experts suggest that cooperation between production

It is foreseeable that the 120w led street light manufacturers to the rapid development of China's LED industry is undoubtedly a set of effective solutions and innovative technology products. 'A kind of LED heat sink and series products project' successfully developed by Zhang Yixing old expert Covering 3 invention patents of heat dissipation device, new power factor correction circuit, power factor correction circuit, and a device that uses thermally conductive material wire braid to exchange heat.


Experts suggest that cooperation between production, education and research should be strengthened to form a complete LED lighting product as soon as possible and obtain data support for better industrialization. Speed ​​up the 'explosive' The pace of growth, LED energy-saving lamps Into more areas. Therefore, There is huge room for growth and ascent. 'Patent Web'


If these technologies can be monopolized, it is expected to monopolize the entire global market for LED lighting. Today, we have broken through the key points that solve the problems of LED lighting products. He also said that he has mastered the patented technology that solves the current problems of LED lighting products. .


Combine the current 'double innovation' , Zhang Yixing outlines the blueprint for the future vision, innovation and entrepreneurship are in full swing, can integrate all aspects of advantages, relying on national policy support, first set up a joint enterprise from technology development to production, supply and sales, responsible for the production, processing, and product sales of lamps . There are many factors that cause this disadvantage, and the key reason, according to reports, lies in technological innovation. This innovative move brings a significant advantage, which can effectively eliminate harmonic circuits, conduction disturbance and radiation disturbance, improve power factor, and ensure low power loss and good performance.

Physiotherapists Reveal Essential Information about Muscle Spasms


Muscle spasms are contractions of the muscles, which occur involuntarily. The feeling is essentially extreme tightness, that is abrupt and painful. Muscle spasms can be especially problematic, if they occur frequently, despite the fact they don’t last long. The causes of muscle spasms are many, although they are mostly about injuries that aren’t treated in time. In this case, they can turn into muscle knots, also known as myofascial trigger points, which are the real issue. They can be very painful and persist for a long time. 


What are the causes of muscle spasms? 

If you are experiencing muscle spasms, there may be many cases for them. What is more, the severity of the spasms can be different. Sometimes they are only mild, causing slight annoyance. In other cases, they cause severe pain and discomfort from tightness. Most commonly, the causes of muscle spasms lie with trauma, overload and overuse of muscles. The spasms occur because of poor blood circulation in the area, created during physical exertion. If muscle spasms are related to a certain activity, then it is usually because the muscle is overstretched, or overused. They can also occur if you have been holding the muscle in one position for too long. Warm weather makes muscle spasms more likely to occur, as that is when overstretching is possible. Certain conditions like diabetes, anaemia, kidney disease and multiple sclerosis can also lead to muscle spasms. 


Symptoms of a muscle spasm 

Since muscle spasms occur during contractions, they are typically associated with sudden pain. Once the spasm has occurred, after the initial contraction you may feel like stretching your muscle. The pain that originates from spasms is very short-lived. Sometimes there is a slight bulge in the area where it occurred. If the muscle spasm is due to an injury, which has gone untreated for a long time, the muscle spasms can progress to muscle knots, which are much more problematic. Typically, physiotherapists will work to reduce the chance of this happening and that is what you should be aiming to do when you work with such an expert in the first place. 


How to diagnose muscle spasms?

Normally, you will do a physical exam when you visit a physiotherapist. They will take your medical history and examine the problem. They will ask you about more details in regards to the symptoms, their rate of occurrence, how long they go on for and what activities take place before the muscle spasms manifest. The ultimate goal of the physiotherapist is to find out the underlying cause of the muscle spasms so that they can treat that. They may also require blood tests and electromyography. 


What treatment is available? 

The most important thing in regards to treating muscle spasms is detecting the root cause of them. Preventing these conditions from triggering the pain is the goal of physiotherapy. The therapist is going to outline a treatment plan, based on the condition you are in. They may prescribe light stretching exercises before engaging in any physical activity, to prevent muscle spasms. If the spasm has resulted from an injury, they will treat the injury, to prevent muscle knots from forming. The goal is always to act quickly since muscle knots are much more difficult to cure. A good treatment method is a massage and physical therapy exercises, which a properly trained physiotherapist will be able to follow through. A few other treatment examples include electrical stimulation, trigger point injections and ultrasound. 


If you have any trouble with muscle spasms, which aren’t resolving quickly, make sure to see a physiotherapist.
