(EN) - Supplement & Vitamin Definitions & Glossary | seniormag.com | Glossarissimo! | Scoop.it

"Glossary of medical and nutritional information for seniors, nutrition guides to supplements and herbal medications.

What are supplements, minerals, and vitamins? While most people know that they are vital to good health, few supplement manufacturers supply good information about their supplement products. Vitamins and minerals are primarily derived from the food we eat. However, seniors often cannot derive the full amount of vitamins and minerals that they need and taking supplements under a doctor or nutritionist's guidance may be recommended.

SeniorMag does not sell supplements nor do we maintain any interest in any supplement manufacturer. Therefore, information about supplements contained in these pages is without bias by any supplement supplier.

So much information about supplements is available, but most of it is aimed at producing supplement sales. We believe that if you understand supplements properly and how they are used, you can use them more effectively."

"Gluten-Free Diet: Grains and Flours

This list is intended to be an aid in choosing and enjoying gluten-free foods. Self-management of one’s diet requires awareness of foods’ content by label reading; awareness of foods’ contact with gluten-containing grains; and awareness of foods’ contamination by such grains in storage or preparation. Research on the relationship of celiac disease and food items is still limited."

Glossary of dance moves

Ball change is a dance move that consists of two steps: or a partial weight transfer on the ball of a foot behind or by the other foot, followed by a step on the other foot. This action has a syncopated feeling and counted &1, or &2, or a1, or a2, etc., i.e., the "ball" step splits off the end of a beat.

(EN) - A Prisoner's Dictionary | aren.org | Glossarissimo! | Scoop.it

"Language is ever-changing. This is particularly true in prisons, where there is the motion of people coming and going, a culture based on a unique set of circumstances, and the need to speak in words that often carry depths of meaning. There are forms of expression that can never be fully understood by the outside world. There are also words that vary from race to race, prison to prison -- as well as slang that find its way into prisons from the outside. As a result, this list will never be complete, and may contain some words that are obsolete, used in different ways at different prisons, or simply not spoken at a particular institution.

This dictionary contains words dealing with sex or violence, matters that are part of prison culture. Many of the terms relate to specific California procedures -- such as "602s." However, this list has grown to contain words and phrases from prisons in various states. Where known, these are identified in parenthesis. Spanish words similarly are identifed as "Sp.""

"The American Mafia has a unique lexicon. Its collection of slang has been building for more than a century. Many of its words have entered mainstream language. This is a collection of Mafia-related slang. Skip ahead in the list by clicking on an index letter below. Note: Because the Mafia depends on the threat of violence to generate income and on actual violence for member discipline, many Mafia terms are synonyms for murder."
