In Africa, different types of fungi and plants are used to make medicine. Among all the plants and herbs, reishi mushrooms are quite popular. The reason is that it offers a lot of health benefits, such as fighting cancer and boosting immunity. In this article, we are going to discuss some of the prominent benefits of reishi mushrooms.

Introduction to the Reishi Mushroom

The Reishi mushroom is also called lingzhi and Ganoderma lucidum. In Asia, it’s a type of fungus that can be found growing in tropical locations in Asia. In Eastern medicine, this type of fungus is a staple. The mushroom contains different types of molecules, such as peptidoglycans, polysaccharides, and triterpenoids. These compounds are the reasons the fungi offers tons of benefits.

Although it’s common to eat the mushrooms fresh, some people also use extracts and powdered forms of the fungi. According to many studies, all of these forms passed quality tests. Let’s check out some primary benefits of it.

1. Boost the Immune System

First of all, reishi mushrooms can help you boost your immunity. Although some details still require more research, test-tube studies have concluded that reishi may have an impact on the genes in your white blood cells. These cells play an important role as far as your immunity is concerned.

Also, some forms of this mushroom may make changes to the inflammation pathways in your blood cells. For instance, according to research studies, some molecules in this mushroom may boost the natural killer cells. These cells are responsible for fighting infections in your body.

Besides, this mushroom extract may boost the production of white blood cells in people who are fighting colorectal cancer. While most of these benefits have been noticed in sick people, some studies show that the extract may be beneficial for healthy people as well.

In another study, it’s was found that the fungus may boost the lymphocyte function that helps fight cancer and infections. But other studies found that it may not improve the immune function in healthy grown-ups.

2. Anti-Cancer Properties

Since reishi mushrooms have cancer-fighting properties, many people use them for cancer treatment as well. As a matter of fact, a study found that more than 4,000 survivors of cancer had consumed this fungus. In addition, many test-tube studies have found that the consumption of these fungi may cause cancer cells to die.

However, these studies are not enough to say that animals and humans may benefit from it. Some research studies found that reishi may benefit people with prostate cancer. According to one case study, researchers found that the molecules in this fungus may help reverse the symptoms of prostate cancer in men.

3. It May help Fight Fatigue and Depression

Apart from the cancer-fighting properties of reishi mushrooms, it may also help fight fatigue and depression. According to a study involving 132 people with neurasthenia, the mushroom helped fight fatigue and depression after 8 weeks of use. In another study, the patients experienced a reduction in the symptoms of their fatigue and depression after the regular use of 4 weeks.

In short, this was an introduction to some primary benefits of the reishi mushroom.

According to an article published in The Economist, “the infusion of data-enabled services into ever more aspects of life“, shall be the most evident consequence of the enduring Covid-19 pandemic. Digital transformation is expected to have greater importance for companies in the future, very shortly.

A 2019 survey of CEOs, directors, and some senior executives discovered that their #1 concern was risk involving the digital transformation. However, 70% of their initiatives towards this motion failed to meet its goals. Of a whopping $1.3 trillion spent on the new endeavors in 2019, unfortunately, $900 billion was wasted.

Why?

Fundamentally, digital transformation teams fail, despite the possibilities for growth and efficiency gains, as people lack the mindset to a shift. With flawed organizational practices, it is extremely difficult to transform completely. Moreover, digitization would magnify the flaws, only to make it appear bigger.

What is Digital Transformation?

When you bring in a new system into an organization, it is only obvious to get a little hyper with the plans for implementation, specification, and counting.
Digital change is one of the most critical processes today, which ensures organizations are relevant as well as profitable in this competitive market.
The process involves integrating innovative technologies and services into existing business practices and streamlining operations. The idea is to improve and add greater value to the final product. This involves adding new tools and applications, storing data, recording information, and a lot of new techniques.

That’s of course, the digital aspect of things. But, if you spare a thought, we are talking about “transformation”, which means introducing innovative ways to work with the existing team.

Tricky, right!

Anybody would be willing to buy a new set of digital suites with the latest tools, but who would run it? The key here is to ensure that the talent, or people, onboard, and the company culture is prepared to adapt. A successful transformation is change management, and people can only make it happen.

Getting Your Team Involved

Any change is difficult. If you want to introduce major changes in your organization, you have to ensure everyone is with you, and not only your leadership team. Yes, you cannot let the team take big decisions for the organization, but involving your team in a process can give better results.

A McKinsey study showed that whereas 84% of the CEOs are dedicated to major transformation changes, only about 45% of the frontline employees agree. Obviously, connecting the dots is a primary obstacle to enacting a successful strategy.

There are many ways to achieve this:
• Take feedback from the team about the changes you implemented
• Keep your team abreast of the implementation strategy
• Incentivize the team with internal marketing to convince new technology to the most reluctant team member

Transformation to the digital landscape can be potentially beneficial to an organization, but only if every single team member agrees and accepts the change. Make sure you have a positive digital transformation team that understands why it is important to adopt new technology and its benefits.

Invest & Train Your Team

Going digital would have hurdles. Some of the team members may not be as tech-savvy as others. However, you cannot leave them behind. To bring them up to that level, a lot of training is required to help them adapt to the latest technology and tools.
Remember, people have different ways of learning too, and speeds may differ. For instance, some team members may understand the concept in one demo session, whereas others may require multiple days of training to get a grip of the new technology.

Experiment with varied training materials, such as online courses and hands-on learning, and give them the flexibility to choose how they want to learn.
It may take some time to learn how to use new technology for better results, especially for team members who do not possess the natural inclination toward technology. Investing in training is a sure-shot way to leverage this transformation.

Digital Transformation Framework Doesn’t Change Everything

The digital transformation framework is not about changing everything at once.
When you start transforming the business, getting carried away is easy. However, it’s critical to know about the technologies to adopt. You may consider the one that employees would find easier to implement and be selective to choose the best way.
Anything that glitters is not better. When you are planning to transform your business processes digitally, it is only to simplify the work process and facilitate your team members. So, do not make it complicated. If you have any doubt about the changes, consult the frontline staff.
For instance, if you want to adopt a new platform for online communication, but you cannot decide between Zoom, Teams, or Slack, consult your staff and take their opinion.

Broaden Your Vision

Do not have a myopic vision when it comes to a major transformation. Digital transformation services aim to make lives simpler and better. A successful transformation strategy is about introducing new changes into the business to make it more efficient and reduce employee workloads.

If executed properly, such a digital revolution can lead to improved working practices, the increased value for customers, and lesser workload for the team. If your digital move is not ticking all the boxes, something is amiss.

Bring Change Right from the Top

The concept of grassroots change is intuitive. However, in reality, change is more likely to take place if driven right from the top. Again, that does not indicate a hierarchical or autocratic structure or a culture that breeds fear. It simply implies leadership, both transformational and transactional.

When digital change is concerned, the primary implication is that no major change or even an upgrade to the organization is possible unless you select and develop the top leaders to start. It’s very clear that leadership, both good as well as bad, flows down to affect every aspect of an organization. The single factor that determines the effectiveness of the transformation of an organization is the CEO or the top leader of an organization. Of course, industry, culture, context, legacy, people, and real tech matter, just like other resources.

However, these things are rather too similar among competitors, while values, mindset, integrity, and competence of senior-most leaders stand out to be the primary differentiating factor. Needless to add, everything in an organization can be imitated, but not talent. So, invest in the best talent for greater impact, which is exactly where you would get the highest value.

Final Thoughts

Technology is all about doing a lot more with minimum resources, yet the arrangement is effective only when technology is paired with the best human skills. Like technological disruption leading to automation and eliminating out-of-date jobs, it has created more jobs. This is precisely why innovation is also called ‘creative destruction.’ Any creative facet of innovation depends on people. So, leveraging human adaptability to upskill and reskill the workforce can augment technology and humans simultaneously. Simply put: a brilliant innovation would be irrelevant if we do not have enough skilled workforce to implement it, and the most inspiring human minds would be least useful if they do not connect with technology. The core implication is – when leaders want to invest in new technology, they should consider investing in people who make technology useful.

Sometimes even experienced cooks can get confused between garam masala and curry powder. After all, both are used in Indian cooking and they seem to be a staple ingredients in many dishes. How different could the ingredients be, after all?

You may be surprised to learn that they are actually very different spices, comprising different ingredients. As a matter of fact, curry powder is not even popularly used in Indian kitchens. It was originally a British concoction to give an Indian flavor to their foods.

Comparing Garam Masala vs Curry Powder

  • Ingredients – garam masala comprises cardamom, cinnamon or cassia, cloves, peppercorns, mace, and nutmeg as the basic ingredients. Different blends will add bay leaves, coriander seeds, cumin seeds, star anise, fennel seeds, poppy seeds, sesame seeds, and regional variants may have other spices like mustard and fenugreek seeds added to the blend.
  • Curry powder usually has some spices like cardamom, cinnamon, clove, coriander, and cumin, in smaller quantities, but also contains turmeric, ginger, fenugreek seeds, red chili, asafetida, ginger, garlic, and mustard seeds. It can be in different heat variants, mild, medium or hot. Both spice blends will use a variety of ingredients, depending on the formulation used to make the blend and the region it is from.
  • Usage – thanks to its warm and pungent spices, is used at the end of the cooking process. It may be incorporated in the food, or even sprinkled on it, much like a garnish. The heat of the food releases the essential oils in the spices and adds a kick to the food. On the other hand, curry powder is added at the beginning of the cooking process as many ingredients like turmeric and mustard need to be cooked.
  • Color – garam masala is typically a shade of brown, whereas curry powder is usually yellowish in color.
  • Dishes – curry powder is not generally used in India except perhaps in ‘British Indian’ dishes but is acceptable in other countries. Sometimes, it may be the only spice used apart from salt. Garam masala is widely used in India in many dishes, with other spices to give flavor and heat to the foods. It is rarely used alone.

Garam masala and curry powder, depending on the brand you use (or if you make your own), have varied flavor profiles and are best not used interchangeably as the taste of the food will be very different.

Garam Masala Benefits for Health

The whole spices that make up the garam masala blend affect your health positively. Some of the benefits include:

  • Improved digestion – cardamom and pepper in garam masala increase gastric acid production in the body and clove and cumin also reduce symptoms such as bloating and flatulence.
  • Reduced bad breath – cloves, cardamom, fennel, and cinnamon are common mouth fresheners and reduce bad breath.
  • Antioxidant-rich – all the spices are rich in antioxidants and these fight free radicals in the body. They help improve heart health and reduce brain strokes. They also boost metabolism, helping in weight loss.
  • Increased immunity – the spices have a warming effect on the body and help fight respiratory ailments like cough and cold. They also help flush out toxins from the body.
  • Enhanced nutrient absorption – piperine in pepper, when combined with other spices, increases the nutrient availability of all the foods it is eaten with.
  • Improved brain and nerve function – the many spices in garam masala work together to protect the nervous system and help improve brain function and protect against Parkinson’s, dementia, and Alzheimer’s.

You can avail yourself of all these health benefits when you regularly add these spices to your foods. Curry powder, because of the different spices used in the product, yields some of the same benefits and some that are quite different.

What are the Usages of Garam Masala?

Garam masala is a very versatile spice mix. While the flavor profile will vary and depend on the number and quantity of each ingredient in the blend – and there is no fixed formula for this – you can typically use it in dishes such as:

Indian foods:

  • Tandoori dishes
  • Tikka masalas
  • Makhani or makhanwala foods
  • Shahi dishes
  • Biryani and pullao
  • Kheema or minced meat
  • Almost all dhals, lentils, and beans
  • Dry vegetable, chicken, and meat dishes
  • Rotis and parathas

Other cuisines:

Even though both spices are Indian, there is no reason you cannot add it to western dishes. You can use this spice mix in foods like

  • Soups
  • Marinades
  • Rubs
  • Omelet
  • Coleslaw and other salads
  • Salad dressings
  • Stews
  • Sauces

You can even experiment and add to bread and savory cookies. Adding a pinch of garam masala to sweet dishes including rich fruit cakes and cookies will enhance their taste, as long as you don’t use a very hot version of garam masala.

Are you grappling with a tough choice? It can feel consuming – especially when it is a decision that will determine the path that you will take in life! Choosing your career path is a very important decision, and you ought to take time and put a lot of thinking into what you want to do in and after college. When you come to Frontlearn Institute, we like to ensure you make a career decision that you do not regret later in life. Here are some of the ways that we advise both our current and prospective students on making the right decision:

1. Read the signs

In our most recent career talk at Frontlearn Institute, we advised our listeners to be attentive to the signs around them. When the time comes to make a critical decision regarding a college major, look around for signs. Consider the response you get while seeking a college in the form of an email reply, a call, or even a text message.

2. Follow your inner voice

When your inner voice or intuition is loud and clear, or even more of a nearby whisper, following it may serve as a great idea as it could serve as guidance when you need critical advice the most. You may have made harder decisions before, and it is highly likely that you listened to your inner voice.

3. Keep Your Conscience Clear

Align your decisions to your values and the decisions will give you a sense of purpose and motivation. You can do this by first making a list of your values and how each of the college majors aligns with your values, priorities, and passions. This will assist you in making the right decision as far as selecting the right path in college is concerned.

4. Stay Positive and Ward off any Negativity

Staying positive is very critical and it helps when it comes to selecting the right major in college. As such, ensure that you maintain positive thinking and ward off any negative thoughts in order to be clear about what you want to be in life.

5. Know Your Biases and Who Influences Your Decisions

Consider with a lot of wisdom those you ask for advice – a trusted person may include your significant other, a family member, or a good friend. Limiting the people who you consider for advice will assist you in not being overwhelmed. Listening too much to others can make it feel like it is not your decision anymore. In addition to that, think about the biases that come with making that decision and how they might be affecting you.

International Women’s Day has been celebrated all around the world for more than a century. On March 8th, every year, people come together to note the feats that have been made by women and further lobby for gender equality and women’s rights.

In the past few years, women from various institutions, including Frontlearn Institute, have made headlines, called for celebrations, and made those in their spheres of influence proud by making meaningful contributions to the education sector.

A few of these women include:

  1. Pasty Mink – Title IX Coauthor and congresswoman

Pasty is no ordinary woman because of the developments she brought to the field of education. Mink desired to go to medical school but could not do so because she was a woman. Then, after finishing law school, she struggled to find a place to work because she was a woman and a mother. She did not give up though. She pivoted her dreams, becoming the first female candidate of color who was elected into a political post in the US Congress. She then coauthored a book named Title IX and advocated for the rights of women, especially in post-modern discrimination. Mink was instrumental in helping put critical policies against discrimination and in funding education programs that support women.

Today, Frontlearn Institute is laying a lot of emphasis on ensuring that women get a fair chance in education. Our programs are gender-sensitive and we pride ourselves on skilling women who have become great professionals in the corporate sector.

  1. Fanny Jackson Coppin – A proponent for African American Education

Fanny was a former enslaved person from the black community. Being a woman, earning a college degree was no easy feat. She dedicated her life to ensuring that African Americans got as many educational opportunities as possible after the civil war in the United States.

Fanny served as the principal for the Institute of Colored Youth based in Philadelphia for 40 years. During her tenure, she eliminated all tuition fees and financed the housing of the students who moved from the suburbs to live in the city.

At Frontlearn Institute, we have endeavored to make education affordable for both genders through scholarships.

  1. Ella Flagg Young

Ella Young was an education reformer who would later go on to become the first female superintendent of the great city of Chicago. She did not manage to go to school until she was 11 years old. She even managed to teach herself reading and writing. She held important roles in education, including teaching, principal teacher, superintendent, teacher trainer, and school board member.

At Frontlearn Institute, we pride ourselves in the fact that we are training women who go into the corporate sector and hold key positions.

  1. Graca Machel

Ms. Machel is known for her advocacy and philanthropy at the Graca Machel Trust. She has been a lifelong companion of children’s rights and girls’ education. Machel went into history as one of the key people who fought against early child marriage that affected mostly women.

Frontlearn Institute is committed to ensuring that women, just like men, receive quality education that will make them recognizable in society.

There are many truths to self-improvements: to be healthy, you have to work out, to become strong you have to train, and to improve your memory you need a sufficient amount of sleep.

But what can one do to enhance their career?

Individuals at different levels in their career feel that they need to grow and advance particularly as pertaining on their professional goals. It is an innate need that is well defined by Maslow’s hierarchy of needs.

And a diploma or certificate from Frontlearn Institute helps you take that next step in the career ladder.

Jacquelyn Smith, in an article published in Forbes magazine, states that most adults go back to school in order to enhance their careers and achieve their professional goals. The author cites Laura vocalizing the notion that additional studies help individuals meet their professional and career goals.

In addition to that, career coaches such as Collamer Nancy note that “to strengthen a range of credentials and marketable skills, which in turn make us competitive, individuals go back to school to increase their education.

Education is an important step in the career ladder. Whether you are an entry-level employee or a CEO in a reputable firm, pursuing further education helps in moving you up the ranks.

Here, we share five solid reasons why you may need to pursue an extra level of education or seek education from a reputable institution such as Frontlearn Institute.

1) GAIN KNOWLEDGE

This may be a very obvious reason as to why you may need to seek higher education. When you pursue a certificate or diploma course, you are better prepared to tackle issues in the workplace because of the additional skills and knowledge that you gain. For instance, a certificate in culinary arts will help you gain the skills you need to work in a professional or commercial kitchen and secure a wide array of culinary occupations.

Knowledge gained from Frontlearn Institute can be both practical and factual. This implies that the information that you learn from Frontlearn Institute is not just interesting, but also of great value in whatever role you are in and wherever you hope to go.

And just because you have that dream job or have somehow gotten to senior management does not mean that you should not think about going back to school. Diplomas for special courses such as culinary arts or information technology can help you broaden your skillset and build on your experience.

2) ENHANCE YOUR SOFT SKILLS

When you enroll in a reputable training institution such as Frontlearn Institute, you learn far more than simply the various management styles or developing a catching presentation. You also get to learn hands-on and important skills.

At Frontlearn, we endeavor to instill soft skills that subsume strong abilities such as teamwork, communication, problem-solving, and critical thinking. Each of these skills are critical and add value to organizations. These skills are so critical that they will get you hired or promoted quicker.

3) DEMONSTRATE A STRONG WORK ETHIC

Pursuing further education takes a lot of determination and work. Enrolling at Frontlearn Institute makes it easier, though, as we try to be as flexible as possible in order to accommodate the various categories of students who come to our institution. Doing so will also demonstrate a strong ethic and personality to your workmates and colleagues.

According to researchers, education is always sending a signal that business executives and supervisors like to see.

Demonstrating a strong work ethic and a commitment to your goals gives management hope that you can continue to be successful in your work environment. And, if you’re already in management, a committed and dedicated attitude sets an example for your co-workers and your direct reports.

4) BOOST YOUR CONFIDENCE FOR SUCCESS

When you earn a degree, you accomplish a big step. You gain knowledge, skills and experience to help you both in your career and in life in general. On top of that, by gaining additional skills in communication and problem solving and achieving your goals, you can also increase your confidence.

And studies have shown that greater confidence leads to greater career advancement.

According to a study from the University of Melbourne cited in an article from Science Daily, there’s a strong correlation between confidence and success. In the study, participants ranked their confidence at various education levels, and findings showed that those who reported higher confidence levels earlier on earned better wages and were promoted quicker.

5) GROW YOUR SOCIAL NETWORK

No, we’re not talking about adding more friends on Facebook. In a classroom setting, you have the opportunity to interact and meet with fellow students who may come from a variety of professional backgrounds.

In being exposed to a broader professional network through continuing your education, you can get to know people who may be in similar situations as you or have been in the spot you’re in and have continued to advance their career.

Your network, grown through earning a degree, can be a wealth of insight and information as you advance your own career.

GROW YOUR CAREER THROUGH EDUCATION

To grow your physical strength, you need to train and work at exercising and lifting weights. To grow in your career, you’ve got to put in the work to deepen your knowledge, gain skills and develop a network that will help you take that next step toward where you want to be.

Whether you’re a seasoned manager or new entry-level employee, a degree from Cornerstone University can help you take that step. Check out our degree programs to discover the path that can equip you to achieve your goals.

Eradicating poverty is key, but how does one eradicate poverty? This seems like a simple question. Yet, it is complex and has been unanswered for decades despite being discussed in several global forums including SDG, UN, and World Bank forums. In a statement, the World Bank notes that it is commited to eradicating poverty in all its dimensions. The global economic body calls for the use of latest information to help goverments develop policies that are sound that can help even struggling economies, and focus investments in areas that are critical to enhancing the lives of people.

In a five point article on how to eradicate poverty, Outreach International notes that it is critical that those directly affected by the problem be directly involved in efforts to combat poverty. This implies that affected populations should be major participants in the global fight against poverty. They also note that it is more important to organize a team to fight poverty rather than leaving the fight to only a few. While this is happening, the key issues should be identified in orde to make the fight more worthwhile. Importantly, those in poverty are to be made aware that they can addres their own issues and that the process of alleaviating poverty takes time.

At Frontlearn Institute, we believe that education can and will reduce poverty. We are not alone as the UN arm for education also holds the same views. UNESCO’s report and the Education Commission provide critical evidence on the impact of education of the earnings of an individual and overall economic growth. As Frontlearn Institute makes its small but targeted steps, there is need to bolster the global agenda of using education to eradicate poverty.

Our courses are designed with a view to provide students with practical skills that will help them to become economically empowered. With our practical courses such as Certificate and Diploma in Culinary Arts are meant to empower students with skills that they can put to use immediately with high chances of employability. Culinary Arts is a highly sought after profession and students graduate with high prospects of being employed. This is one major way of reducing poverty: teaching relevant courses for the job market.

Frontlearn also links its graduates with employers for attachment and internship positions. The technical institution is also planing on launching an alumni support program where all its graduates will be able to network. The goal is to locate employment that is relevant to the skills and interests of the graduates and assist in the creation of inclusive workplace environments where the graduates can be able to give meaningful contribution.
