Question Content Provider, LoaderManager

Hello, i have a counter application, and list of count items in my database. I was using SimpleCursorAdapter with ListActivity and and it was easy to populate items on Adapter. i was doing database operations using sql queries.

Now i switched to LoaderManager and ContentProvider. I read Chapter 8, my PROBLEM is i constructed my content provider, but when i update any data using ContentResolver(contentProvider) , it is tooo slow. I have about 5 items displayed on my screen, each has increase buttons (http://goo.gl/RmnTmO)

So if i click plus button, i update value with value+1. Those are links for my ContentProvider, Database, MainActivity:

HELP with this contentProvider and Asynch LoaderManager thing, they are sooo slow. and i dont want to use depreciated startManagingCursor(cursor);

Default Content Provider, LoaderManager

I am not that familiar with this stuff but don't see an asynchronous loader here, as that restartLoader is called in a new thread.
At the end of onCreate in your main for instance :
    Thread t = new Thread(new Runnable() {
      public void run() {
  Handler handler = new Handler();
  public void update() {
    handler.post(new Runnable() {
      public void run() {
    	  getSupportLoaderManager().restartLoader(0, null, this);
