Blood Connects Us All
Today June 14, 2016, is World Blood Donor Day (WBDD). The theme for this year is Blood connects us all.
Today is World Blood Donor Day (WBDD 2016). It is celebrated every year on 14 June by countries around the world on the birthday anniversary of Karl Landsteiner (born on 14 June, 1868) a great scientist who won the Nobel Prize for his great discovery of the ABO blood group system.
The event, established in 2004, serves to raise awareness of the need for safe blood and blood products, and to thank blood donors for their voluntary, life-saving gifts of blood.
Transfusion of blood and blood products helps save millions of lives every year. It can help patients suffering from life-threatening conditions live longer and with higher quality of life, and supports complex medical and surgical procedures. It also has an essential, life-saving role in maternal and perinatal care. Access to safe and sufficient blood and blood products can help reduce rates of death and disability due to severe bleeding during delivery and after childbirth.
The theme for this year’s campaign is “Blood Connects Us All“. The objectives are to thank blood donors for their life-saving gift of blood and highlight the theme of blood connecting us all; to create wider public awareness of the need for regular blood donation, and inspire those who have not yet donated blood to start donating; to persuade countries to show appreciation to regular, voluntary, unpaid donors and commit to self-sufficiency in blood supply.

Benefits Of Good Sleep
Sleep is one of the most important aspects of our health and wellbeing. It helps us to recharge, rejuvenate and repair both physically and mentally.
A good night’s sleep can help reduce stress levels, revive energy levels after a hard day at work or school, sharpen concentration for more productivity during waking hours and improve memory.
Studies have also found that regular quality sleep lowers inflammation in the body which increases overall immunity while reducing the risk of serious illnesses such as cancer, heart disease and diabetes. Additionally, research suggests that getting enough sleep regulates moods by causing fewer bouts of depression or anxiety if enough restful sleep is attained each night.
3 Hygiene Hacks You Should Know
Good hygiene is a critical part of staying healthy, so it’s important to learn how to keep your home clean.
One tip is to do chores and cleaning on a daily basis rather than wait for an accumulation of dirt and clutter in the house. Cleaning hard surfaces like door handles, counters and toilets regularly with disinfectant solutions can help prevent the spread of germs that cause illness.
Vacuuming carpets or mopping floors weekly can also eliminate dust, pet dander and other harmful particles from your living environment. By following these simple tips, you should be able to improve the hygiene inside your home.
1. Regular vacuuming will not only reduce dirt but will remove dust mites which are known to contribute towards allergies amongst family members. Immediate washing up after meals should be done as soon as possible so food doesn’t spoil on plates and cutlery; remember that germs thrive when there’s moisture around too.
2. Ensure all surfaces in the kitchen are thoroughly cleaned every day with a suitable antibacterial solution; this will also require disinfecting door handles and other regularly touched areas two or more times a week.
3. Vacuum and dust twice a week; deep-clean carpets every six months; wash curtains regularly, about once a month; mop floors every day, especially in the kitchen where bacteria can build up quickly; use natural cleaners such as baking soda or vinegar instead of chemicals whenever possible, wipe surfaces with disinfectant wipes nightly to help kill germs; declutter often to reduce places for dirt and grime to hide.
