Inilah Manfaat dan Rahasia di Balik Gerakan ShalatGerakan dalam shalat punya manfaat luar biasa bagi kesehatan tubuh manusia. Berikut di antaranya:

Pacu Kecerdasan

Gerakan sujud dalam shalat tergolong unik. Falsafahnya adalah manusia menundukkan diri serendah – rendahnya, bahkan lebih rendah dari pantatnya sendiri. 

Dari sudut pandang ilmu psikoneuroimunologi (ilmu mengenai kekebalan tubuh dari sudut pandang psikologis) yang didalami Prof. Sholeh, gerakan ini mengantar manusia pada derajat setinggi – tingginya. 

Mengapa? Dengan melakukan gerakan sujud secara rutin, pembuluh darah di otak terlatih untuk menerima banyak pasokan darah. Pada saat sujud, posisi jantung berada di atas kepala yang memungkinkan darah mengalir maksimal ke otak. Itu artinya, otak mendapatkan pasokan darah kaya oksigen yang memacu kerja sel–selnya. 

Dengan kata lain, sujud yang tumakninah dan kontinyu dapat memacu kecerdasan. Risetnya telah mendapat pengakuan dari Harvard Universitry , AS. Bahkan seorang dokter berkebangsaan Amerika yang tak dikenalnya menyatakan masuk Islam setelah diam–diam melakukan riset pengembangan khusus mengenai gerakan sujud.

Perindah postur

Gerakan–gerakan dalam shalat mirip yoga atau peregangan (stretching). Intinya untuk melenturkan tubuh dan melancarkan peredaran darah. Keunggulan salat dibandingkan gerakan lainnya adalah shalat menggerakan anggota tubuh lebih banyak, termasuk jari kaki dan tangan. 

Sujud adalah latihan kekuatan untuk otot tertentu, termasuk otot dada. Saat sujud, beban tubuh bagian atas ditumpukan pada lengan hingga telapak tangan. Saat inilah kontraksi terjadi pada otot dada, bagian tubuh yang menjadi kebanggaan wanita. Payudara tak hanya menjadi lebih indah bentuknya tetapi juga memperbaiki fungsi kelenjar air susu di dalamnya.

Mudahkan persalinan

Masih dalam pose sujud, manfaat lain bisa dinikmati kaum hawa. Saat pinggul dan pinggang terangkat melampaui kepala dan dada, otot–otot perut (rectus abdominis dan obliquus abdominis externuus) berkontraksi penuh. 

Kondisi ini melatih organ di sekitar perut untuk mengejan lebih dalam dan lama. Ini menguntungkan wanita karena dalam persalinan dibutuhkan pernapasan yang baik dan kemampuan mengejan yang mencukupi. 

Bila, otot perut telah berkembang menjadi lebih besar dan kuat, maka secara alami ia justru lebih elastis. Kebiasaan sujud menyebabkan tubuh dapat mengembalikan serta mempertahankan organ – organ perut pada tempatnya kembali (fiksasi).

Perbaiki kesuburan

Setelah sujud adalah gerakan duduk. Dalam salat ada dua macam sikap duduk, yaitu duduk iftirosy (tahiyyat awal) dan duduk tawarruk (tahiyyat akhir). Yang terpenting adalah turut berkontraksinya otot-otot daerah perineum. 

Bagi wanita, inilah daerah paling terlindung karena terdapat tiga lubang, yaitu liang persenggamaan, dubur untuk melepas kotoran, dan saluran kemih. 

Saat duduk tawarruk, tumit kaki kiri harus menekan daerah perineum. Punggung kaki harus diletakkan di atas telapak kaki kiri dan tumit kaki kanan harus menekan pangkal paha kanan. 

Pada posisi ini tumit kaki kiri akan memijit dan menekan daerah perineum. Tekanan lembut inilah yang memperbaiki organ reproduksi di daerah perineum. Dengan shalat, Insya Allah hidup kita sehat.

FIFA suspends Barcelona transfer ban

FIFA suspends Barcelona transfer ban - FIFA on Wednesday suspended a ban on Barcelona signing players while the club makes an appeal against a 14-month transfer ban.

World football's governing body, which imposed the sanction this month for breaching rules on the registration of minors, announced in a statement that the ban would be temporarily suspended allowing Barca to sign players during the summer transfer window which opens on July 1.

The club welcomed the move.

"FC Barcelona sees the decision announced today by the FIFA Appeal Committee to provisionally allow the cautionary measures requested in the club's appeal against the sanction imposed by FIFA's Disciplinary Committee as a positive step," the club said in a statement.

The Spanish champions are in desperate need of an overhaul in the summer transfer window after a difficult season which is likely to see them miss out on a major trophy for the first time in six years.

Replacements are primarily needed for goalkeeper Victor Valdes and club captain Carles Puyol who have both announced their intention to leave the club at the end of the current campaign.

Barcelona has appealed against what would be a dramatic restriction on its operations and asked for the sanction to be suspended, the FIFA statement said.

FIFA Appeal Committee chairman Larry Mussenden agreed that the appeal meant the ban should be suspended.

Mussenden "took into consideration the sanctions imposed against the club, the complexity of the matter, the start date of the next registration period – 1 July 2014 – and the fact that the FIFA Appeal Committee does not seem in a position to take a decision on the main issue early enough so that an eventual appeal of the club against its decision before the Court of Arbitration for Sport would still be decided before the beginning of the next registration period," said FIFA.

Mussenden "assures that proper and adequate appeal proceedings will take place and, at the same time, that all rights of the club will be respected."

FIFA's disciplinary committee imposed the transfer ban on April 2 after finding Barcelona guilty of "serious" breaches of rules on under-age players.

It also fined the Spanish Football Association (RFEF) for allowing the deals.

The Spanish champions were given 90 days to regularise the situation of 10 minor players.

Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu described the ban as a "grave injustice" and insisted the club intend to make moves in the transfer market this summer.

There are two transfer windows in the 14 month ban, one starting in July and running to the start of the new Spanish season. The second would be in January 2015.

In 2010, FIFA imposed a similar transfer window ban against Chelsea over the signing of French youngster Gael Kakuta. It was overturned after Chelsea reached an agreement with the player's former club Lens.

Smoking bans have considerable public health benefits for perinatal and child health


(thehealthnewsblog.com)

Smoking bans have considerable public health benefits for perinatal and child health - Banning smoking in public places has helped to cut premature births by 10 percent, according to new research from the United States and Europe.

A study in The Lancet medical journal found that while the impact of anti-smoking laws varies between countries, the overall effect on child health around the world is positive.

"Our research shows that smoking bans are an effective way to protect the health of our children," said Jasper Been of the University of Edinburghs Centre for Population Health Sciences, who led the study.

He said the findings should help to accelerate the introduction of anti-smoking legislation in cities, countries and districts which have yet to do so.

Laws banning smoking in public places such as bars, restaurants, offices and other workplaces have already been proven in previous studies to protect adults from the health threats associated with passive smoking.

According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), tobacco already kills around 6 million people a year worldwide, including more than 600,000 non-smokers who die from exposure to second-hand smoke. By 2030, if current trends continue, it predicts tobaccos death toll could be 8 million people a year.

Only 16 percent of the worlds population is covered by comprehensive smoke-free laws, and 40 percent children worldwide are regularly exposed to second-hand smoke, the WHO says.

Public health experts hope that as more and more countries in Europe and around the world adopt stricter legislation on smoking in public places, the health benefits will swiftly start to become evident.

Fridays research in The Lancet, which analysed data on more than 2.5 million births and almost 250,000 hospital attendances for asthma attacks, was the first comprehensive study to look at how anti-smoking laws affect childrens health.

With results from five North American studies of local bans and six European studies on national bans, it found rates of both pre-term births and hospital attendance for asthma fell by 10 percent within a year of smoke-free laws coming into effect.

"Together with the known health benefits in adults, our study provides clear evidence that smoking bans have considerable public health benefits for perinatal and child health," said Been.

He said it also provided "strong support for WHO recommendations to create smoke-free public environments on a national level." - Editor: Priyambodo RH COPYRIGHT © 2014

Tentang Mitos 'Satria Piningit' Pada Pilpres 2014


Satrio Piningit akan muncul di 2014 sebagai sosok Semar' 

Tentang Mitos 'Satria Piningit' Pada Pilpres 2014 - Meski hitungan suara Pemilu Legislatif (Pileg) 2014 belum selesai, euforia demokrasi itu sudah berakhir, hanya tinggal menunggu hasil keputusan Komisi Pemilihan Umum (KPU). Selanjutnya, rakyat Indonesia tinggal menanti siapa presiden berikutnya yang bakal menggantikan Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.

Mitos 'Satria Piningit' masih kerap muncul jelang pemilihan presiden (Pilpres). Di Indonesia, setelah Pileg yang digelar pada 9 April kemarin, selanjutnya akan digelar pesta demokrasi pemilihan presiden pada Juli mendatang.

Dan pada tahun inilah, presiden ke tujuh akan dipilih. Ngomong-ngomong soal presiden ke tujuh ini, Suhu Bingo (70), asal Tibet yang menetap di Surabaya, Jawa Timur, menyakini munculnya Satrio Piningit. Bingo meyakini ramalan Ki Jayabaya. 

"Artinya, tujuh satria yang dipingit untuk memimpin negeri. Kalau kita memakai ramalan Jawa, urutan satria itu ada di level ke tujuh. Maka Pilpres tahun ini, waktunya sosok Semar yang menjadi satrio pinandito, dan terpilih menjadi presiden," terang ahli tafsir Ramalan Jawa dan china itu saat ditemui di kediamannya, Jumat (11/4).

Dengan munculnya sosok Sang Semar, atau pemimpin Punakawan dalam kisah pewayangan itu, maka tuntas sudah mitos Satrio Piningit yang kerap menjadi pergunjingan. Semar adalah figur penutup dari kisah Satrio Piningit.

Kata Suhu Bingo, jika ramalan tujuh Satrio Piningit ini disatukan dengan ramalan Semar atau yang akrab disapa Mbah Semar oleh orang-orang Jawa, memang sangat cocok. Satria ke tujuh adalah ksatria yang cerdas, berilmu tinggi serta memiliki kewibawaan yang luar biasa.

Analisanya begini, Satrio Piningit atau satria ke tujuh adalah Satrio Pinandito (SP), yang sama dengan sosok Semar Punakawan (SP), yang juga memiliki kepintaran, berilmu tinggi dan berwibawa.

Ramalan Semar sendiri muncul saat Kerajaan Majapahit yang berada di tanah Jawa, tepatnya di daerah Mojokerto, runtuh. Dan saat itupula, sesuai ramalan Mbah Semar, munculah sosok Sabdo Palon (SP) sebagai penasehat kerajaan.

Sabdo Palon sendiri, diramal akan kembali muncul di zaman Satrio Piningit, yang akan menata kembali kekacauan yang terjadi di suatu negeri.

Sosok Satrio Piningit yang muncul pada Pilpres 2014 nanti, Suhu Bingo meramal, akan muncul dari Jawa. Dia (Satrio Piningit) lahir dari Jawa, yang akrab disebut dengan panggilan khas orang Jawa.

"Entah itu dia dipanggil dengan sebutan ki, kanjeng, cak, le atau sebutan apapun yang masih berbau Jawa. Yang jelas, sesuai ramalan, dia lahir dari Jawa dan sekali lagi saya katakan akrab dipanggil dengan nama orang Jawa," ucap Suhu Bingo.

Now Muslim parents are complaining about flyers for Easter egg hunts


.

Now Muslim parents are complaining about flyers for Easter egg hunts - In Dearborn, Mich., home to over 40,000 Americans of Arab descent, some Muslim parents have complained about flyers handed out at public schools advertising an Easter egg hunt at a local Presbyterian church.

The Muslim parents assert that the flyers – emblazoned with the word “Eggstravaganza!” – violate the separation of church and state widely ascribed to the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause, reports the Detroit Free Press.

Students at three Dearborn elementary schools received the flyers. A large number of Muslim students attend the schools.

The “Eggstravaganza!” is scheduled to take place on April 12 event at Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church in Dearborn.

The flyer urges students to RSVP “to secure your free spot,” note the Free Press. The associated imagery includes a festive bunny and some eggs.

The event will feature a traditional Easter egg hunt as well as an egg toss and a relay race.

“It really bothered my two kids,” parent Majed Moughni told the Free Press. “My son was like, ‘Dad, I really don’t feel comfortable getting these flyers, telling me to go to church. I thought churches are not supposed to mix with schools.”

Moughni added that he believes the flyers are “a serious violation of separation of church and state.” Noting that his kids had previously received something about a Halloween event at a church, he said he is worried that Christians are trying to convert Muslim kids through propaganda distributed at public schools.

The Muslim father of two kids, aged 9 and 7, said he would be equally opposed to the distribution of flyers about events at local mosques.

Pastor Neeta Nichols of Cherry Hill Presbyterian noted that the event has absolutely nothing to do with religion.

“It’s designed to be an opportunity to invite the community to come for a day of activity,” she told the Free Press. “There is not a religious component to this event.”

Greg Lipper, a lawyer at Americans United for Separation of Church and State, proclaimed his concern that the flyer is advertising an Easter egg hunt that will occur at a church. In his view, “context matters”—and it matters even more when young kids are involved.

Easter eggs are a symbol many Christians use to celebrate the Christian holiday of Easter. In pagan religions, eggs represented fertility, birth and rebirth. More generally, they symbolize springtime. Kids typically tend to associate Easter eggs with candy and people in rabbit costumes.

For 136 years (as of next week), the president of the United States and his family have hosted the White House Easter Egg Roll. This year, the theme is “Hop into Healthy, Swing into Shape.” Over 30,000 people will convene on the South Lawn on Monday, April 21 for the festivities.
