5G Made Simple

When confronted with waiting a staple here in the city can you relax and enjoy the moment or do you become anxious since time is passing by? These inner questions can affect your inner body health. Can you observe your inner self? Can you feel the inner energy within your body? Meditation will slow your internal clock causing you to age more slowly through connection with the inner energy of your body. Practiced daily meditation will enhance your immune system allowing you to better overcome the negative stimuli in our environment. Meditation also gives your mind a rest and allows you to connect with your true being. It will allow you to refocus your thoughts and resolve situations quicker. Meditation requires dedication and consistency but even at a few minutes per day can make a real difference in one’s life. I myself practice meditation everyday and believe it’s an important part of my life.

The only thing you have direct control over is your mental and physical health. Feeling good about yourself and taking care of your health are important for your self-esteem and well being. How will you enjoy life’s special moments and conquering life’s challenges if you’re not in your best physical and mental shape? Your mind is constantly being bombarded by thoughts and challenges. Should I do this or should I do that? Is this the right decision or the wrong one? Am I in the right place or do I need to change? How you respond to these silent thoughts control your actions and peace of mind. Living in New York City has its positives but can also be a source of added stress. Most of us are trying to save every minute either from running down the escalator to catch the Q train or the demands of work pushing us more and more. We are known as the city that doesn’t sleep and most are continually mobile.

A New Horizon in Wireless Technology

remote locations, and more stable downloading and uploading capabilities. Experts predict that 5G will provide download speeds of up to 10,000 megabits per second, which is roughly 100 times faster than 4G. While it can take a 4G network upward of 15 seconds to download a simple 5-megabyte music file, a 5G network will be able to download an entire movie in less than two seconds. WHAT’S NEXT? These network updates are all about speed, but that doesn’t mean you should rush to switch your cellphone over to 5G. Many providers are still testing the service with select markets, and a full rollout of 5G isn’t expected until later this year. Check with your network provider about the options they currently offer and get ready to connect with the world like never before.

cellphones and stationary devices like desktop computers to send and receive data without being physically connected to a network via cables. As technology improves and more connection points are established around the globe, new network generations are “released” to represent significant advancements in speed and reach. HOW POWERFUL WILL IT BE? Consumers will notice the rise of 5G mostly with their smartphones. Apps and services that function using the internet will have fewer delays, faster loading times, more reliable internet access in

Few things change faster than the internet, and how we connect with the internet is constantly evolving. When it comes to wireless capabilities, fourth- generation (4G) networks have been the norm for 10 years. But 4G couldn’t meet demands forever, and there’s already talk of a fifth-generation (5G) network taking center stage. So, what makes 5G different from 4G, and how will it affect consumers and their internet-enabled devices? WHAT ARE THE BASICS? Simply put, 5G is the fifth generation of wireless technology that enables mobile devices like

THE DAILY GRIND We Are Talking Teeth Not Coffee

ax when cutting down a tree leading to increased sensitivity and possible tooth fracture. The constant daily grind can bring muscle pain to your jaw and sides of your head. Meditation, yoga, exercise and a healthy diet can help to relieve the stress. But if that’s not working we have a solution for you to help save your teeth from breaking. It’s called a dental night guard which as the name implies you wear at night to guard your teeth. It is made of a soft, flexible material and will protect your teeth from the hazards of grinding. New York can be a stressful place so we have made substantial numbers of night guards. The fabrication and wear is painless and may be covered by your dental insurance policy. So if this sounds like you or you know of someone who has mentioned this problem. Let us know and we’re here to help make you feel a whole lot better.

Daily tooth grinding is not beneficial to the health of your teeth. They can fracture, loosen or experience increase wear leading to sensitivity and cavities. It’s like water continually running over rocks or two pieces of wood constantly being rubbed against each other. Over time the outer surfaces will wear down. The constant moving of your jaws can also lead to teeth abfractions. These formed notched areas on the sides of your teeth are similar to the bite of an

Do your teeth hurt upon waking in the morning? Do you experience a dull pain or headache? Do you find your jaw to be sore or your bedmate giving you the morning look of being kept up at night?

If so, then maybe you’re grinding your teeth at night to relive the stresses of the Big Apple.


What’s the oldest library in America? It’s an easy question to ask, but it has an unexpectedly complicated answer. Before the Industrial Revolution generated greater interest in public services, a library’s function and purpose varied widely. Several libraries in the United States claim to be the country’s “first,” but for different reasons. COLLEGES AND THE CLERGY Some believe Harvard University hosted the first library in the United States. Harvard was the first university in the United States, founded in 1636, and clergyman John Harvard seeded the library with a 400-book collection. Soon after, however, Thomas Bray, another clergyman, began establishing the first free lending libraries throughout the colonies to encourage the spread of the Anglican Church. Not surprisingly, most of the libraries’ holdings were theological. A FEW MORE FIRSTS During the 1700s, a few more “first” libraries were established. In 1731, Ben Franklin and a few others started the first subscription library in the United States. Members of subscription libraries could pay to buy books or borrow them for free. In 1757, 60 men founded the Library Company of Burlington in New Jersey, and Thomas Rodman received a charter from King George II to operate the business in 1758. The library still operates under that charter today. The Library of Burlington THE OLDEST LIBRARIES IN AMERICA A Story of Many Firsts

was the first library to operate out of its own building after a prominent resident donated the land in 1789.

BY THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE In 1833, just as the Industrial Revolution was picking up steam, the Peterborough Town Library was founded in Peterborough, New Hampshire, at a town meeting. It was the first tax-supported free public library in the United States and in the world. Not long after that, the Boston Public Library, known as the “palace for the people,” became the first municipal public library in the country. The Boston Public Library was also the first library to have a space specifically for children.

Out of all the “first” libraries in the country, these are the most probable progenitors of most libraries today — even if they weren’t exactly “first.”

If you are a long time New Yorker you can experience your past at the New York Transit Museum. On display are subway cars and memorabilia that will instantly transport you back in time. You can date yourself and instantly be transported to a younger you. It is a powerful and enjoyable experience.

All of us are immigrants to the United States. Many of us can trace our ancestor’s right here to New York City. Coming from across the seas, entering New York harbor through Ellis Island and landing on Manhattan’s Lower East Side the museum shows what living was like in the late 1800’s in this area of New York City.

If you are into clothes here is a museum that showcases designer clothes. Fashion Institute of Technology has been part of the New York City garment trade for decades. At one time NYC produced more than 90% of the garments worn in the United States. The museum provides a glimpse into the past and what is currently fashionable.
