Summary

The East Coast of Trinidad. The seaside village of Plaisance, Mayaro. Pulling seine, catching crabs, playing cricket and football on the sand, walks along the beach, looking at the sunrise, swimming whenever you wanted, the sun shining, the surf rolling... 
When Robin's mother passed away he was overcome with nostalgia for his childhood in Trinidad. The memories that came flooding back to him of holidays spent at Mayaro Beach with his family were instrumental in helping him recover from the devastating loss. Recollections of a deliriously happy youth were the healing balm he needed personally, and a legacy he wanted to pass along to his own children. 
Through the eyes of ten-year-old Robin, The Beckoning Tide shares the joy of those days and weeks spent at the beach, and his carefree coming of age. Through those childhood recollections and reflections, Robin is able to deal with the changes in his life as an adult, and to cherish the profound sense of belonging that only the blessings of close family can bring. 
This book reminds us all that, even for those lucky enough to have spent summers at the family cottage or to have lived in an exotic piece of paradise, the most special place to be is with the people you love and the biggest treasure is the bond of family.

    Raw foodism as a diet has been known since the ancient times. Our ancestors were eating fresh food and felt great. Before the dawn of the Paleolithic age, people were eating raw plant food and later included animal products into their diet. Now, human diet mostly consists of semi-finished products and fast food. So, what exactly, raw foodism gives to a man? As an individual diet concept, raw foodism was formed in the 20th century. The spread of raw foodism was favored by mass diseases of civilization – obesity, cardiovascular diseases and cancer.
     
    Thus, raw foodism began to cause myths about the things which are dangerous in it, that some raw foodists died from a lack of essential substances, that raw foodists gave birth to a disabled person. At the same time, raw foodists never miss the chance to speculate whether the raw foodism is useful and to which extent. In my book, I will not cover the theory of raw foodism in the form in which adherents perceive it. I am going to pay more attention to some obviously false notions, offered as a substitute for the existing knowledge or experience regarding raw foodism. We’ll also consider the order of the real thoughts concerning the advantages of raw foodism. In reviewing some facts, I used quotes from raw foodists’ experience, similar articles and books with slightly edited style and grammar.

    Now Let Us Look At Other Factors That Can Hinder Hair Growth.  
    To do this, I will like to call your attention to the fact that several collective factors that can cause the problem of hair thinning or hair loss are extreme emotional or physical strains, using wrong hair care products for your hair type, heredity and having a very poor hair care habit.  
     
    Okay, you must also understand that everybody loses hair at one point or the other in their life time and that it is only usual to lose about 60-120 strands of hair on a daily basis, however, if by any chance you observe bald spots or you notice that your hair is no longer as full as it used to be then, you are definitely undergoing hair loss.  
     
    Hair loss in women can be observed after child birth; however, the most usual cause of hair loss is hereditary! It is reported that about eighty million people inclusive of male and female have this kind of condition in the United States alone.
