The Do Not Leave My Hands
I am working with indigenous youth and the parent company want me to learn and teach the indigenous ways. I have prayed for this job and God answered by placing me there. Now the company is hassling over my wages and such. I need prayer to accept my position and also for the company to value my work and worth. I need prayer to leave all of this in God s hands. Thank you.
The Do Not Leave My Hands
I will pray for you. May your noble work be appreciated by mortals and you are rewarded a decent livelhood. Please pray for me as I am a manager trying my best to reach to everyone kindly but I do meet intollerance. Im leaving my performance in the hands of God.
I so needed this beautiful message today. I have always believed this but struggle doing it. One of my wonderful sons sent Wisdom Hunters to me to read. I thank you God I am truly blessed and leave my worries in your hands. Thank you son, love you.
Keeping hands clean is one of the most important steps we can take to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others. Many diseases and conditions are spread by not washing hands with soap and clean, running water. CDC recommends cleaning hands in a specific way to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others. The guidance for effective handwashing and use of hand sanitizer was developed based on data from a number of studies.
Why? Because hands could become recontaminated if placed in a basin of standing water that has been contaminated through previous use, clean running water should be used 1. However, washing with non-potable water when necessary may still improve health 3. The temperature of the water does not appear to affect microbe removal; however, warmer water may cause more skin irritation and is more environmentally costly 4-6.
Using soap to wash hands is more effective than using water alone because the surfactants in soap lift soil and microbes from skin, and people tend to scrub hands more thoroughly when using soap, which further removes germs 2,3,7,8.
Why? Lathering and scrubbing hands creates friction, which helps lift dirt, grease, and microbes from skin. Microbes are present on all surfaces of the hand, often in particularly high concentration under the nails, so the entire hand should be scrubbed 11-15.
Why? Determining the optimal length of time for handwashing is difficult because few studies about the health impacts of altering handwashing times have been done. Of those that exist, nearly all have measured reductions in overall numbers of microbes, only a small proportion of which can cause illness, and have not measured impacts on health. Solely reducing numbers of microbes on hands is not necessarily linked to better health 16. The optimal length of time for handwashing is also likely to depend on many factors, including the type and amount of soil on the hands and the setting of the person washing hands. For example, surgeons are likely to come into contact with disease-causing germs and risk spreading serious infections to vulnerable patients, so they may need to wash hands longer than someone preparing their own lunch at home. Nonetheless, evidence suggests that washing hands for about 15-30 seconds removes more germs from hands than washing for shorter periods 15, 17, 18.
Why? Germs can be transferred more easily to and from wet hands; therefore, hands should be dried after washing 15, 19. However, the best way to dry hands remains unclear because few studies about hand drying exist, and the results of these studies conflict. Additionally, most of these studies compare overall concentrations of microbes, not just disease-causing germs, on hands following different hand-drying methods. It has not been shown that removing microbes from hands is linked to better health 16. Nonetheless, studies suggest that using a clean towel or air drying hands are best 18, 20, 21.
As you touch people, surfaces and objects throughout the day, you accumulate germs on your hands. You can infect yourself with these germs by touching your eyes, nose or mouth, or spread them to others. Although it's impossible to keep your hands germ-free, washing your hands with soap and water frequently can help limit the transfer of bacteria, viruses and other microbes.
Help children stay healthy by encouraging them to wash their hands frequently. Wash your hands with your child to show him or her how it's done. To prevent rushing, suggest washing hands for as long as it takes to sing the "Happy Birthday" song twice. If your child can't reach the sink on his or her own, keep a step stool handy.
The Centers for Disease Control recommends washing your hands with soap and water whenever possible to reduce the amounts and types of all germs and chemicals on your hands. However, if soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Hand sanitizers with lower alcohol levels are not as effective in killing germs.
To use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, squeeze the sanitizer into the palm of one hand (read the product label to learn the proper amount), rub your hands together, including the back of your hands and fingers. Continue rubbing until your hands are dry.
If you have a lot of cracks in the skin on your hands or have dry or chapped hands, be careful about how often you wash your hands or use alcohol-based hand sanitizers (which can further dry out your skin). Washing your hands too often or using these hand sanitizers strips your hands of healthy oils and the good bacteria needed to fight off germs. Germs can also more easily enter your body through skin that is not intact. To combat this condition, apply a moisturizing hand cream or lotion to damp hands.
Energetically will I meet the enemies of my country. I shall defeat them on the field of battle for I am better trained and will fight with all my might. Surrender is not a Ranger word. I will never leave a fallen comrade to fall into the hands of the enemy and under no circumstances will I ever embarrass my country.
Hand washing after handling raw meat or poultry or its packaging is a necessity because anything you touch afterwards could become contaminated. In other words, you could become ill by picking up a piece of fruit and eating it after handling raw meat or poultry without properly washing your hands.
Wash hands with water and soap for 20 seconds before and after handling food; before eating; and after using the bathroom, changing diapers, tending to a sick person, blowing your nose, sneezing, coughing and handling pets. You should also wash your hands after touching surfaces that are frequently used, like doorknobs and handles, light switches, phones and keyboards.
In USDA observational studies, participants did not attempt to wash their hands up to 75 percent of the time when it was required. When handwashing was attempted, participants failed to follow the CDC recommended steps for handwashing up to 99 percent of the time. The most common errors were not scrubbing their hands for 20 seconds, followed by not wetting their hands with water before applying soap.
Foodborne illness-causing bacteria can remain on surfaces for a very long time. Campylobacter can survive in your kitchen for up to 4 hours and Salmonella can last for up to 32 hours. Norovirus, often called the stomach flu or a stomach bug, is the most common foodborne illness-causing germ in the United States. Norovirus is a very contagious virus that causes vomiting and diarrhea. It can spread easily if you eat or drink contaminated food or touch contaminated surfaces or objects then put your unwashed hands in your mouth.
According to the CDC, a homemade disinfectant for surfaces can be made by mixing a solution of five tablespoons (one-third cup) of unscented liquid chlorine bleach to one gallon of water or four teaspoons of bleach per quart of water. You should use gloves to protect your hands before using disinfectant solutions. Pour or spray your homemade disinfectant on sinks, countertops and other surfaces, then let it sit for at least one minute before wiping your surfaces clean with a paper towel. Be sure they are completely dry before using those surfaces or your sink again.
Of the participants that did not wash raw poultry, 31 percent still managed to get bacteria from the raw poultry onto their lettuce. This high rate of cross-contamination was likely due to participants not effectively washing their hands during food preparation and from contaminating the sink or utensils when handling the raw poultry.
Washing, rinsing or brining meat and poultry in saltwater, vinegar or lemon juice does not destroy germs. If you choose to remove skin, fat or blood from raw meat or poultry, you can do so on a clean cutting board, using a knife to cut away any flaws or patting the raw item with a paper towel and throwing it away when done. Immediately wash and then sanitize your cutting board and any knives or utensils and wash your hands thoroughly.
The same goes if using hand sanitizer: Use a sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol and rub it into your hands for at least 20 seconds to ensure full coverage. Remember: hand sanitizer can be toxic if swallowed and should be used only under adult supervision.
Germs spread more easily from wet skin than from dry skin, so drying your hands completely is an important step. Paper towels or clean cloths are the most effective way to remove germs without spreading them to other surfaces.
But if your hands look dirty, you should wash them with soap and water. Although hand sanitizer is often more convenient when you are outside of the home, it is less effective on visibly dirty hands. Also, alcohol-based hand sanitizer does not kill all kinds of bacteria and viruses, for example, certain diarrhea-causing viruses. It can also be toxic if swallowed and it should be stored out of reach of children and used only under adult supervision.
Rub the hand sanitizer all over your hands, making sure to get between your fingers and on the back of your hands. Do not wipe or rinse off the hand sanitizer before it is dry. Do not use hand sanitizer if your hands are visibly dirty or greasy; wash your hands with soap and water instead.
