Hello and Welcome to the May edition of ‘The Hampton Viewer’

Contents Page Business Feature 12 Touch of Healing

Regular Articles We often entertain our teenage children with stories of how life was when we grew up. Their favourite topic is tales of the world without computers and mobi le phones, and of grea t amusement is the thought that the phone wouldn’t fit in your pocket. The first I used which was truly mobile, had a battery pack which was the size and weight of a large shoebox filled with lead, and the first laptop computers were not really portable, as I remember, they were so heavy, at best they were ‘transportable’. It has been said that it was a simpler world then, but having the ability to work from home, to stay in touch with friends and family, to buy online and have it delivered to my door and to find out almost anything I want instantly is fantastic. One other thing I love about the internet is that we can have people working on the magazine and it doesn’t matter where they live. Still there is a limit! We all still need local trades people, gardeners, garages, hairdressers and of course some one to fix our computers when they go wrong. That’s what this magazine is all about, a choice of services in one handy guide and local events for the days when you feel like interacting with the real world rather than just the virtual one! On that note, I wish you all a great month and hope you enjoy reading the June issue. Until next month!

Have you ever wondered why being hugged feels so good, especially at those low moments in life?

T

he reason of course, lays in science, in a hormone which also acts as a neurotransmitter (in case you don't know, that's a chemical in brain cells, which helps pass on messages). This very special hormone is known as oxytocin, and slowly researchers are finding it has some unusual functions in our body's. It regulates trust and morality and so it is very important for human behaviour, particularly in relationship interaction. It makes us feel safe, and its feedback messages to the brain is that everything is good, everything is all right. Oxytocin is released in the body during breast feeding, which is brilliant for the mother baby bonding process. When we hug, hold hands, dance with a partner, even when we pray. It’s also released into the bloodstream during massage and bodywork too‌ which is why these things can be therapeutic and health enhancing. By our very evolution humans are born to be social, & Oxytocin helps us navigate our social world build relationships where we can feel relaxed and content. Oxytocin builds behaviours showing compassion and kindness, generosity and forgiveness, and as mentioned earlier it lets us trust others. In some studies researchers have used synthetic Oxytocin to reduce stress levels, so this particular hormone out trumps cortisol, the fight or flight hormone. Other researchers have shown that while there is Oxytocin streaming through our body we see happiness as opposed to depression. I wonder if this hormone is the scientific basis behind the saying 'Love conquers all'? If that's the case then we need to be doing the things which encourage our body's oxytocin levels. Get dancing with a partner or hug someone you are close to, for at

12

least 20 seconds and it will improve your heart rate, lower your blood pressure and lower your stress levels. You could also try a massage or regular bodywork for the added therapeutic benefits that gives you. In today's chaotic existence we can sometimes use all the help we can get in terms of feeling good. If oxytocin does what the experts say it does and there is an abundance of it in our system, and you can achieve that abundance by simply hugging or getting a relaxing massage, then its pleasing to think we might eradicate those other chemicals in our system which cause us to feel down or depressed. For more information on oxytocin and its benefits go to: http:// positivepsychologynews.com/news/ emiliya-zhivotovskaya/2012032321636.

If on the other hand you might like to try out therapeutic treatments which may help raise oxytocin levels in the body, go to www.touchofhealing.co.uk or call Shehnaz on 0771 075 6771.

The Whinge A Dangling Participle Is Something Up With Which I Will Not Put

I

t was early in the morning and my wife

was woken by my daughter coughing with considerably more enthusiasm than she does most things (see the article published last month). My wife looked at me with sadness and empathized, “Aw, poor, little thing.” Ordinarily, I might have replied with a similar comment, but not this particular morning. For at the time my wife was saying this, I had just emerged from the shower room stark naked. I gave my wife a hurt look, at which point she burst out laughing - which didn’t help to be honest. The reason I bring this humiliating event to light is not to amuse you or to elicit smirks and giggles the next time you see me. It’s because it highlights the importance of meaning in what we say and write. There has been another tirade from the press these last few weeks about grammar and in particular grammar tests for school children.

Some of my favourites are the signs you see along the road, such as “Slow men working” or “Slow children crossing” and the one I particularly like is “wet paint”, I often ponder: “is that a warning, or an instruction?” That said I can see the point of view whether or not anyone really cares about split infinitives or ending a sentence on a preposition; what does it matter really? But I do care that there is a difference between your and you’re, and their, there and they’re etc. That’s the kind of grammatical error that does annoy me. My wife will tell you that the one error that makes me get my red marker pen out is the use of paninis, “panini” is already plural, panino is the singular. Just like cappuccino is the singular of cappuccini and paparazzo is the singular of paparazzi. They are Italian words that have been adopted into English.

I, personally don’t get too wound-up about the use of street language or the occasional grammatical slip-up, it happens to us all. However, I do get annoyed when there seems to be a campaign to abolish grammar altogether. After all it can be quite useful. Without commas or full stops this article would be quite a struggle to read (insert sarcasm here). To illustrate: a sign outside a church read “Dont let worries kill you let the church help.” Well apart from the lack of apostrophe, I’m sure that’s not what they meant to say, but even a comma wouldn’t have saved the day on that particular sign. However, another internet anecdote tells of an English professor who wrote “A woman without her man is nothing” and told the class to punctuate the sentence correctly. All the men wrote, “A woman, without her man, is nothing.” All the women wrote, “A woman: without her, man is nothing.”

18

I leave you with two final thoughts: “Let’s eat grandma” or “Let’s eat, grandma?” And on an old Burger King Advert: “It takes many ingredients to make Burger King great but... the secret ingredient is our people.” The Whinger (C) 2013 Stephen Farringdon Http://stephenfarringdon.com

In The Night Sky #27

A

t the end of May and the beginning of June you should get to see Mercury, Venus and Jupiter dancing around each other in the night sky as they change their relative positions each night. However, depending on when you’re reading this you may have missed the best of that show for now. But June brings other highlights and as the nights get warmer and (hopefully) clearer you should be able to get some good quality sky-watching in before we start to head back towards the colder months. The only problem with this is that as we move towards midsummer the nights are much shorter and it doesn’t get dark until quite late. So this month I’ve decided to tell you about something that you need to see a little earlier. In fact you will only see this phenomenon during twilight towards the end of dusk and before dawn: Noctilucent clouds. I know you probably think you’ve seen enough clouds for now, but these are special ones. They were only observed for the first time in 1885 and are still not fully understood. You will only see them in the summer months and only when the Sun is below the horizon and illuminating the fringes of polar mesospheric clouds which are very high up in the atmosphere. These fringes are very fine and although are mainly found

22

in the polar regions during the summer they can’t be seen there because the sun doesn’t go below the horizon. Here in Peterborough we are just far enough north to be able to see them. This picture, from NASA shows these Noctilucent clouds as seen from the International Space Station on 22nd July 2008.

These clouds form higher in the atmosphere than any other clouds at between 76 to 85 km (447 to 53 miles) in the region known as the mesosphere. They are unusual because they can form directly from water vapour as well as the traditional cloud formation method of forming on dust particles. The mesosphere is also very dry with approximately 0.000,000,01% that of the Sahara. Happy Night Watching! The Nightwatchman 2013 Stephen Farringdon http://stephenfarringdon.com

Motor Review

w

as a case of double-oh-heaven for Land Rover at the New York Motor Show as it managed to steal the limelight for the launch of its new Range Rover Sport thanks to a rather special unveiling by none other than Daniel Craig. The Bond star helped the British manufacturer deliver the first car to the press launch in a live drive through the streets of Manhattan. The $1 million stunt saw sections of the city closed at rush hour and it had all the razzamatazz of the Oscars. One of Land Rover’s most important models, the Sport has notched up nearly 304,000 worldwide sales since it arrived in 2005. Now, following the successful births of the Evoque and Range Rover, it’s the racy middle brother’s time to shine. Based on the same aluminium platform as the Range Rover, but with 75 per cent of the parts changed, the Sport ushers in an Evoque-esque look, clever new technology, and some seriously impressive statistics. Powering the top-of-the-range model is a 5.0-litre supercharged V8, producing 503bhp and 625Nm of torque. With a tuned exhaust system, it sounds incredible as it powers its way to 60mph in five seconds. The popular SDV8 diesel unit also makes a welcome return. With 332bhp and a mighty 700Nm of torque, it can crack 60mph in 6.5 seconds. There are further diesel and petrol units to pick from, but of more interest is the hybrid which is set to arrive later this year and combines a 3.0-litre diesel engine with a 50kw battery, a big leap forward for the model. Improvements have been made across the board. The new Sport is 33% lighter than its predecessor (that’s the weight of six average adults), the body is 25% stiffer and on average it’s 24% more efficient.

30

Clever new technology on the Range Rover Sport includes an iPhone and Android app that lets you connect with their car. It can guide you back to where you parked it, tell you how much fuel is left, file company car mileages via email and even alert you if it thinks it’s about to be nicked. The clever kit includes in-car wifi for up to eight devices, a tracking system to aid recovery and the ability to dial emergency services in the event of a crash and alert them of your location. A camera on the front of the car reads road signs as you pass them, displaying speed limits and over-taking restrictions on the dash. There’s also a head-up display that shows speed and navigation instructions. Parking scrapes can also be avoided with a warning system that tells you if a car is coming while reversing out of a bay and an alarm can tell you if you’re wading too deep in the water (a dip into anything over 850mm could result in big bills). Larger families will be pleased to hear there’s now a seven-seat option too. The seats are only really for kids, but electrically rise and lower from the flat floor. The tailgate gets power while the doors now have a soft-close option. Inside, the designers have worked hard to make it even more luxurious, with more metal on show and a higher, wraparound dash. The centre console is even chilled and fits a full bottle of champagne in it. There’s a 23-speaker stereo system and rear seat entertainment options too. Pricing, as you’d expect, is rather premium. The top-of-the-range supercharged V8 costs £81,550, with entry level models, a “more affordable” £51,550. Time to visit the bank manager… because this is one highly desirable car. by James Baggott, MD of Blackballmedia.co.uk
