11:20 am
hits, alex joyce breaks out several humidifiers. "by having a humidifier in the bedroom it would bring it to a more comfortable humidity in the room and i would wake up in the morning and not have dry sinuses and i would not have dry lips.' consumer reports just tested more than 30 humidifiers. — evaporative-style, which draws air through a wet wick filter; ultrasonic which releases a fine mist into the air; and vaporizer types which emit steam. testers measure moisture output. "when the winter comes, you put your heating system on, the air dries out, you want to know how much humidity you can put back into the room." testers also look at features, noise levels and how easy a humidifier is to clean. consumer reports tests found bacteria can grow in every type of humidifier, but some are better than others at keeping it out of the air. "we found that evaporative-type humidifiers are less likely to put that bacteria back into the air. it may grow in the tank, but its not going to come out."

11:53 am
hard to tell where you are at that point because its now been over four months since the injury all of the muscles are gone so event though i could you know my arms lost half of its mass only so only time will tell but initially i was enthused because i tell my arm what to do and it does it. and he was also the kind of person who wasnt going to sit on it wasnt going to except a reduced level of functionality for the rest of his life. he was going to do something about trying to get better. himself and worked hard. thats up to you. you know so i was very intent to make it absolutely sure i didnt waste this opportunity. the people that get better are the ones that go into surgery believing theyll get better. theres an element of faith and preparedness from the mental
