Kale or borecole is a form of cabbage (Brassica oleracea var. acephala in the mustard family), it can be green or purple with curled and wrinkled, crinkled leaves. Can be also called cole, colewort, collard. It is one of the most nutrient-dense foods, especially high in vitamins C, K, A, B6, and minerals manganese, copper, calcium.
ancient supergrain, that is actually a pseudo-grain (seed of a pseudo-cereal crop that is not a true grass). Also known as Kañiwa, Qañiwa, Qañawa or Qañawi, Scientific Name is Chenopodium pallidicaule.
Dark reddish-brown almost black in color, seeds are rich in protein, fiber, iron and calcium, and antioxidants. Kaniwa cooks up quickly to resemble a smaller version of red quinoa.
pelvic floor exercises of repeatedly contracting and relaxing the muscles that form part of the pelvic floor (isolated from thigh and buttock muscle contractions). Exercises are usually done to reduce urinary incontinence (for example, in women after childbirth) or reduce premature ejaculatory occurrences and enhance erections in men. Could also help to reduce the feeling of incomplete evacuation in Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
Exerciser devices include eggs, Ben wa balls (rin-no-tama), vaginal cones, weights, and electrical stimulators and could provide biofeedback devices but are not always recommended.
Internet-of-things (IoT) applications include kGoal Smart Kegel Trainer, Skea - exerciser and a video game, Elvie - kegel balls and exercise tracker for pelvic floor and OhMiBod's LoveLife Krush - a "smart" Internet-connected kegel exerciser that doubles as a sex toy.
Note potential problems if pushing the device down, mis-training muscles or over-tensing the pelvic floor that can lead to a condition called hypertonicity.
KNon-motile rod-shaped enterobacteria digesting lactose, often associated with illness. Klebsiella pneumoniae, Klebsiella oxytoca, and Klebsiella granulomatis are examples of infections often acquired in hospitals. Klebsiella typically reside inside the guts of mammals. Klebsiella planticola inhabits the root systems of most terrestrial plants. It is as near to a universal plant bacterium as there has ever been, partly responsible for the decomposition of all plant matter. Modified K. planticola could be used to turn dead plant material into alcohol

Keratoacanthoma (KA) is a rapidly growing skin cancer usually appearing as a volcano-like bump on the sun-exposed skin of middle-aged and elderly individuals. Many scientists consider keratoacanthoma to be a less serious form of squamous cell carcinoma. Most keratoacanthoma cause only minimal skin destruction, but a few behave more aggressively and can spread to lymph nodes.
If left untreated, most keratoacanthoma spontaneously disappear (resolve) within 6 months, leaving a depressed scar. However, they may cause significant damage to the skin and underlying layers of tissue as well as psychological distress. Additionally, rare forms of keratoacanthoma may spread (invade) aggressively below the skin level and into the lymph glands
