Cayenne pepper contains the chemical compound capsaicin, which may help to reduce cholesterol and clear arteries and blood vessels. Dash the ground pepper over sautéed dishes as well as into teas, soups, and juices. To target a more specific area of the body where you experience poor circulation, mix ground cayenne pepper with enough water so that it forms a paste. Spread the paste thinly on a cheese cloth and wrap the cloth around the troubled area. In case of a burning sensation, add some olive oil to the paste to relieve the intensity.
This semester, Pellissippi State will experiment with a case management system for adult learners that will allow faculty to send early flags when a student needs tutoring, financial aid, counseling or transportation. For example, when Tennessee Reconnect is fully implemented next fall, if an adult student struggles to show up to English class because of child care problems, the professor can use the management system to alert the student success coordinator, who can ask whether the school’s child care grant can help the student find better. The system is designed to catch students before they fall through the cracks once more.
