If you are a home buyer, read below:
WHAT IS IT? .
- Kitec® is a brand of plastic piping used in hot and cold water supplies to plumbing fixtures, and in heating systems with boilers. It was made from 1995 to 2007.
. - It is cross-linked polyethylene (PEX). It often has a thin layer of aluminum embedded between the inner and outer PEX walls. That type is called PEX-AL-PEX. The aluminum prevents oxygen moving through the pipe walls. .
. - A class action lawsuit was issued in 2011 against IPEX Inc., the manufacturer of Kitec. IPEX and their insurance company settled, and set up a $125 million fund to provide compensation for those with Kitec® .
-One alleged issue is with fittings that contain high levels of zinc, resulting in corrosion and weakness over time. .
- May result in leaks and water damage to the home .
- May also result in clogging and poor water pressure and flow.
IDENTIFYING PLUMBING INVOLVED IN THE LAWSUIT: .
- It’s usually blue on cold water piping and red or orange on hot water piping. It may also be black, white or grey. Heating system piping is most often orange. .
- Piping named in the lawsuit includes the following brand names: Kitec, Plumbetter, IPEX AQUA,
WarmRite, Kitec XPA, AmbioComfort, XPA, KERR Controls or Plomberie Améliorée
WHERE TO LOOK: .
- Near the hot water tank or near the boiler. .
- Under kitchen sinks or bathroom vanities. .
- There may be a notice on the electrical panel stating that Kitec® is used in the home, warning electricians not to ground the electrical system to it. .
- You can also ask a professional home inspector or a plumber. What if you have piping named in the lawsuit? .
- Register with the class action website as a precautionary measure. If you have a problem, you
may be reimbursed, in full or in part.
. - www.kitecsettlement.com .
- You have until 2020 to register .
- Our best advice is to do what the class action website advises: .
- File a claim as a precaution. .
- Watch for white corrosion on brass fittings. .
- Watch for black spots or blisters on the pipe, particularly near the water heater.

Sunday morning at the rink. There isn’t anything Vinnie looks forward to more than hockey. It is a new experience for all of us! But I love to see him develop not only skill but passion.

You can never do too many SLRDL😎 . . .
This particular version inspired by @bogas_d
utilizes the eccentric loading of the hamstrings to facilitate the concentric phase of the step-through. This is also an excellent way to work on the transfer of energy from the posterior chain 🍑 forward into the ball pass = power production🤾♂️
. . .
🔹Keep supporting foot grounded down and into floor, arch lifted
🔹Spine is neutral, torso hingeing from hips — allow hip bones to tip forward so that pelvis stays aligned with spine. This provides optimal “priming” of the hamstrings and glutes.
🔹Supporting knee slightly bent — you should feel the tension through the hamstrings 🔹Extend ACTIVELY out through heel of gesture leg, leg parallel with toes aiming down; avoid letting leg sag and become a “dead weight”
🔹Shoulders packed back into joint, lats engaged and hands pressing ball together to generate tension
🔹Take 4 counts down on the eccentric phase, holding position 1-2 seconds to allow optimal muscle fiber recruitment before step through
🔹Drive down//push forward from supporting foot to propel body forward, rolling through big toe — use force from floor and up through calves/hams/glutes to drive ball forward
🔹Attempt to brake the movement at the moment of step-through, using glutes, hamstrings and quads (here, try to stick the landing in a lunge position, keeping big toe in contact with floor)
👉Rule of thumb: USE THE FLOOR!!! It’s your best friend when it comes to producing power and explosiveness.

We get it. There is still a lot of confusion and controversy around the SOY.
_______________________________________________________-But remember. Not all soy is created equal and Soybeans are one of the most genetically modified crops in the world so there is a HUGE difference between GMO soy protein you find lets say in vegan fast and convenience foods like “chicken nuggets and hotdogs” to fermented, organic WHOLE soy sources like you find in organic tempeh.
________________________________________________________I am personally very pro the right kind of soy foods like our Festive Maple Balsamic Tempeh and here are a few reasons why.... ________________________________________________________Tempeh is a probiotic food, so it helps the body to produce healthy bacteria.
________________________________________________________Its also is complete protein, (containing all of the essential amino acids) and it has antibiotic properties.
________________________________________________________Soy isoflavones strengthen bones, help to reduce menopause symptoms, lower the risk of certain cancers and coronary heart disease.
________________________________________________________Contrary to popular belief, these compounds lock into estrogen receptors in the body and actually help lower estrogen levels as it forces the body to eliminate excess estrogen that has no receptors to bind to.
________________________________________________________You can catch organic soy and all of its healthy benefits in our Festive Maple Balsamic Tempeh and our quiches all listed on our holiday Menu. Get your orders in by Wednesday morning for guaranteed holiday delivery for all your healthy entertaining needs.

Posted withrepost • Well said energimedispa ! The benefits of Vitamin C in skin care:
1) you need it to make collagen
2) it will brighten your skin tone and lessen hyperpigmentation
3) it can be the best topical antioxidant of all. You need antioxidants to neutralize free radicals from UV exposure, pollution and other environmental foes.
But know that not all vitamin C was created equal! Look for the ingredient ‘L-ascorbic Acid’. You also want to make sure any Vitamin C you use is stable. Since the molecule is notorious for breaking down super fast when exposed to light and air, proper product packaging to preserve potency is key.
Biolumin-C by Dermalogica uses an ultra stable Vitamin C complex to deliver 3x more Vitamin C into the skin than the leading competitor.
