It seems like a lot of folks are worked up over life in general these days. They have a burr under their saddle and seem intent on staying that way. The outward effects of this are pretty obvious, but what all of this does to a person’s body has a tremendous bearing on their overall health.Emotions such as anger and hostility ramp up your “fight or flight” response. When that happens, stress hormones, including adrenaline and cortisol, speed up your heart rate and breathing. You get a burst of energy. Your blood vessels tighten. Your blood pressure soars. If this happens often, it causes wear and tear on your artery walls. The physical and mental stress that anger produces can trigger a heart attack or any other condition related to this muscle.Being angry can cause what’s known as irritable bowel syndrome, which can lead to colitis or diarrhea. Stress, fear, tension and anger can all cause intestinal imbalances. Gastritis is one of the most common consequences of anger and the symptoms are well-known: acid reflux, pain, and a burning sensation in the stomach. Stomach acids inflame the mucus lining when you have multiple episodes of anger, so if you get angry very often, it may not only provoke gastritis but can also cause stomach ulcers.Itching, rashes, and pruritus have, among other things, anger as a main trigger. The same can be attributed to bouts of tension, stress, nervousness, anxiety and fear.Negative emotions will invariably impact your physical well-being, and anger is no different. Emotional factors are actually one of the most important contributing factors for all diseases, including cancer. Your emotions can actually trigger your genes to either express health or disease … and if you’re chronically angry or prone to uncontrolled outbursts you could be inadvertently sabotaging your health. We all experience anger and hatred at some point in our lives. It is natural to feel angry about something, as long as you know how to deal with your anger so that it doesn’t negatively affect your health and well-being. If you can learn to tackle your anger at its root and resolve your negative feelings without lashing out at yourself or others, you will already be one step further on the path to optimal health and happiness.“God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.” Stay healthy, my friends.Jody Holton writes about health and wellntess for The Port Arthur News.

Allseas was contracted by Synergy Cargo Services Europe Pty Ltd to move the Bridgewater factory to Chittagong, where it will be reassembled and refurbished for operation by MAF Paper Mills .The relocation required the shipment of pieces up to 5.8 metres wide; the consignment included a series of massive tanks and drums as well as 132 high-cube containers, 40 x 40-foot flatracks and several open-top 20-foot containers.The size of the largest pieces meant a road journey of any distance was not an option for the largest pieces, so these were shipped out of Ellesmere Port (near to the factory location) by feeder to Antwerp, for loading on the SCI Chennai .The project, managed by Synergy managing director Sanjoy Das , Synergy director Amit Ahuja , and Allseas Global Logistics commercial manager Mark Binge , began in November 2010 and is now nearing completion.The factory – technically called a de-inking plant – will be refurbished in Chittagong and is expected to be 100 percent operational in the next nine to 12 months, producing pulp.Factory relocations represent a major area of business for Allseas, which has developed a strong reputation and expertise in such work. “We have been extremely busy handling factory relocations in recent years,” said Mark Binge. “Ten years ago these were mainly moves to China as the final destination – but the markets are now much more varied.”Last year Allseas was appointed by Pilkington to handle the relocation of a glass factory from Birmingham in the UK to Santos in Brazil.Synergy, a rapidly growing global logistics company with bases in Dubai, India, Colombo and London, has recently handled major project cargoes out of Wales and Germany, amongst others.
Public spending watchdogs have once again raised concerns about payments to senior figures at the legal complaints body.Long-awaited annual accounts for 2014-15, published by the National Audit Office (NAO) yesterday, are qualified on the grounds that ‘novel and contentious’ payments to senior staff have not been approved by the Ministry of Justice.This is the second year in a row in which auditors have qualified the accounts of the Office for Legal Complaints. Last year’s accounts were qualified on the basis of what the NAO called irregular expenditure totalling £22,300. This related to expenses claimed by the first chief legal ombudsman, Adam Sampson, who parted company with the office in November 2014.In the latest accounts, a certifying statement by Sir Amyas Morse, comptroller and auditor general, says that in 2014-15 the office ‘made payments in respect of a remuneration scheme for senior staff… which I consider to be novel and contentious. I have concluded that this expenditure is not in conformity with the authorities which govern it and is, therefore, irregular’.The report’s governance statement says that the office is required to continue these payments under ‘contractual commitments to its employees’. Introducing the report, Steve Green (pictured), chair of the Office for Legal Complaints, admits that: ‘Disappointingly, the 2014-15 business year has been dominated by the need to resolve a range of difficult internal issues. These issues largely relate to or derive from some of the many decisions taken at the time that the Legal Ombudsman was being set up in 2010 but which only came to light in early 2014.’However he says: ‘I am confident that we are now well on the way to bringing these issues to a resolution. In spite of these internal challenges the Legal Ombudsman has continued to deliver a consistently effective service while significantly driving down its costs.’Kathryn King, interim chief ombudsman, reported that efficiency measures have cut the cost of the office’s legal jurisdiction from £16m in 2013-14 to just over £12m next year.
