What are sugar gliders?

Sugar gliders are marsupials and are native of Australia.
They actually look like squirrels and may grow up to 13 inches in length. They sport blue-grey fur and have large eyes that they use to aid food hunting in the wild. These animals are agile and active, making it necessary to house them in a cage with adequate space.

Sugar gliders have a single black stripe running from its nose down to its back. Gliders actually have opposable toes on their hind feet and sports five digits for each limb.

Aptly named as a “glider”, the animal has a thin membrane attached to the first and fifth toe, allowing the animal to extend its limbs and “glide” through the air.

For more information, be sure to read the Sugar Glider as Pets article.

Proper Pregnancy Nutrition Is Not Just About the Calories

There is a pervasive misconception about pregnant woman that has been around for as long as we can remember: that pregnant women can safely overeat because their bodies will just consume the extra calories anyway.

While it’s true that pregnant women should be given a little leeway when it comes to food preferences, their caloric leeway is not unlimited. So when it comes to ice cream, potato chips, and other junk food, there definitely needs to be a limit.

Proper pregnancy nutrition is not about packing in hundreds of extra calories a day. It’s about giving the pregnant woman the right type of food so she will get sufficient amounts of macronutrients (carbohydrates, fat, and protein) and micronutrients (vitamins, minerals, and other essential chemical compounds such as choline) in her diet.

So proper pregnancy nutrition centers on the quality of the food that is being consumed by the pregnant woman on a daily basis, not just on the number of calories she is consuming -- although that, too, is important.

Proper nutrition is a pregnant woman’s first defense against pregnancy-related problems. Remember, what goes into a pregnant woman’s body is eventually absorbed by the baby inside. If she eats junk most of the time, the baby is forced to consume high amounts of sodium, saturated fat, and sugar as well. It takes more than calories to produce a healthy baby; please remember that.

Minecraft Survival Island

What is Minecraft Survival Island? Minecraft Survival island is very different than the minecraft game. Survival Island is only about 30 blocks wide and close to 45 blocks in length. The goal of this game is to survive for as long as you can on the island with very limited resources. This is harder than it may seem. Not only are there mobs that want to get you but the lack of resources will not aid you much in the beginning.

There are dungeons that have aggressive mobs that will spawn. Be careful because if you leave the island or die then you lose. Make sure you utilize each resource that you come across. Dirt will even be a precious commodity on the island. Start branching out and building your island up as you can.

You will only have a small portion of land and you must use all of your knowledge and skill to survive and create the island. Your first goal once you get on the island is to build your home to be able to protect yourself when it is needed. You can take this challenge and outlast your friends time to achieve those bragging rights. Utilize the things you learned on minecraft for the survival island. Create protected areas with rocks or boulders you find. Underground tunnels can also help keep you safe.

The amount of time that you live will solely be determined by your actions. Your need to survive will hopefully allow you to see objects that can help you prolong your lifetime in the game. Remember to dig in the mines and use whatever is available from within them for your tools. Digging underground can supply you with dirt to plant those crops in. Look at everything twice and have fun surviving.

There are several Minecraft Survival Islands available for you to download and each has a set of challenges that can encourage you to stop at nothing to reach the goals. Here are a few tips to help. number one is to make some type of basic shelter for you to live in. Be careful how much water you consume. Only use it when you must have it. Food is also very scarce so use it wisely. Eat only when you absolutely have too.

There are several hidden tools for you on each island so consider all your options before you use them. You will need to grow and nurture your saplings to produce more wood for your island. Be patient and let the land help you replenish your supplies. This game can be played with whatever time you have free. A few minutes a day or a few hours. You determine the outcome by using skill and knowledge on the Minecraft Survival Island. There is no time limit on this game as long as you survive. Be sure to take and post some pictures of your homes so others can see what you have accomplished on the island.
