Hey Athena – The old ‘walk away’ trick does often lead to a much better price and I use that as well. With cycle-rickshaws, there is still a generally accepted (if not somewhat official) price for these as well, as there often is for motos even if there is no meter. It’s just a matter of talking with locals to find out what these prices may be ahead of time (although I do tend to pay higher rates for cycle rickshaws given the work involved). And I’ve never really had to deal with much of a threatening situation upon arrival. If I know the price I paid is right, I will just walk away if the driver starts to argue. If I have some doubt, I may give the driver a little more money but that rarely happens.
Used for thousands of years - Boswellic acid is known to exert anti-inflammatory effects. It is thought that by preventing the breakdown of connective tissue, and by increasing the blood supply to joint tissues, Boswellic acts as an anti-inflammatory. In fact, in one study, Boswellia performed better than prescription drugs at reducing the inflammation of osteo and rheumatory arthritis. It also sometimes performs better than aspirin, acetaminophen and other NSAIDS (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory aides) at reducing general arthritis pain.
“Reg Park’s theory was that first you have to build the mass and then chisel it down to get the quality; you work on your body the way a sculptor would work on a piece of clay or wood or steel. You rough it out””the more carefully, the more thoroughly, the better”” then you start to cut and define. You work it down gradually until it’s ready to be rubbed and polished. And that’s when you really know about the foundation. Then all the faults of poor early training stand out as hopeless, almost irreparable flaws. [..]
