THE 1974 MEXICO PLANE/UFO CRASH


The aliens have BEEN on Earth for hundreds of years, [and] made treaties and agreements with our governments; there are millions of them in secret underground complexes such as DULCE, New Mexico, which are responsible for the abduction of American children and citizens and the cattle mutilations documented in books and on TV.

Bill Holden, who also served as loadmaster for Air Force One, traveled with Kennedy to Europe in the summer of 1963. He said a UFO conference in Bonn, Germany, prompted a discussion of the subject aboard the President's plane one morning. Holden said he turned to Kennedy and asked, "What do you think about UFOs, Mr. President?" He said Kennedy became quite serious and thought for a moment before replying, "I'd like to tell the public about the alien situation, but my hands are tied." President John F. Kennedy & UFO's Was JFK silenced for knowing too much?

During the United States initial space exploration and the Moon landings every launch was accompanied by alien craft. On November 20, 1990, Los Angeles TV Channel 2 announced that a separate, red, glowing round-shaped object accompanied the space shuttle Atlantis on its latest classified military mission. That was the first public admission. (Behold A Pale Horse, William Cooper, pg. 220)

One former employee of NASA, the American space agency, told the research team that radio hams heard Apollo crew members Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin agog with amazement when they saw the aliens. "These babies are huge, sir, enormous! Oh my God!" Armstrong reported to mission control. "There are other spacecraft out there, lined up on the crater's edge. They're on the moon, watching us! "The encounter was confirmed to the researchers by Maurice Chatelain, a former head of communications at NASA. UFO Sightings by Astronauts

20 MIN. INTERVIEW WITH ADMIRAL RICHARD E. BYRD IN 1947 ABOUT THE HOLLOW EARTH, WHICH HE DISCOVERED.


SERMON ABOUT NAVY PILOT ADMIRAL RICHARD E. BRYD DISCOVERING THE HOLLOW EARTH IN 1947


In one of the most extraordinary and strange deathbed confessions ever, an Area 51 scientist and career government worker recently left behind a video revealing supposed federal secrets that are nothing short of a conspiracy theorist's dream come true. The Inquistr reported Oct. 28 that Boyd Bushman, a highly accredited aerospace scientist and the holder of numerous innovative patents, decided to come clean in his last hours and record what he knew about the U. S. government's dealings with aliens and its secret UFO program. Perhaps most astonishing of all, though, was his revelation that not only were UFOs real, but that 18 extraterrestrials were currently working for the U. S. government.

Boyd Bushman, whose career saw the man holding positions with Lockheed-Martin, Hughes Aircraft and other aerospace firms, died on August 7, 2014. But prior to his passing, he gave an interview that has caught the attention of many in the UFO community. His words affirm much of what many have come to believe -- that UFOs are real, that the government has had dealings with aliens for decades, and that there has been a concerted effort to keep the information secret from the general populace over the same period.

Bushman says in the video that he was responsible at Area 51 for "reverse engineering" alien technology for use in the U. S. military. Among his revelations was that the alien craft was indeed saucer-shaped -- it was an actual "flying saucer" -- and 38 feet across.

But far more shocking -- some might say more disturbing -- was Bushman's claims that aliens that had traveled to Earth were out and about, working for the federal government. The scientist said there were 18 extraterrestrials working for the government. Some of them were at least 250 years old.

Boyd Bushman isn't the first former government employee with inside knowledge of secret facilities like Area 51 who has been willing to share their experiences. However, he may be the most credible. His position as an aerospace engineer and his having opened up just before his death in what amounts to a deathbed confession (an act seen as having legal weight) lends extra merit to his words.

Bushman also produced several photos of what he claimed were aliens working at Area 51, some of which he says died while working at the top secret government facility. The Nevada facility has been operational since 1955 and has been the focus of speculation ever since. Being an experimental testing ground cloaked the base not only in secrecy but also added the atmosphere that gave rise to the idea of cover-ups and sinister goings-on.

It is a story worthy of "The X-Files." Still, is there any validity to the claims of the late Boyd Bushman? Is Area 51 exactly what conspiracy theorists and UFO true believers have claimed it to be over the years -- a hiding place for UFOs and extraterrestrials?

Although Bushman's claims may be difficult to verify, one thing is certain: His video testament has become something of note. Since it was posted on Oct. 8, the interview video has garnered over 2.6 million views to date.

YAHOO NEWS 8-8-14 IF YOU DON'T WANT TO DIE FROM A STORKE OR BRAIN ANERURYSM, QUIT SMOKING. 80% OF PEOPLE WITH BURSTING BLOOD VESSELS IN THEIR HEAD, SMOKE!!! SO, WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO QUIT?

The sudden death of Martha Stewart’s younger sister Laura Plimpton from a ruptured brain aneurysm this week has no doubt sent much of the general population into a panic. So Yahoo Health turned to one of the country’s biggest experts in the field, Dr. Christopher Ogilvy, director of the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center Brain Aneurysm Institute in Boston, for some answers — which were not, unfortunately, all that comforting.

“About 20 percent of people who have an aneurysm rupture drop dead, while another 30 percent go on to die even if they manage to get treated,” he explained. “Of the survivors, about a third do OK, about a third wind up with serious deficits, and a third are in between.” The good news, however, is that brain aneurysms are relatively rare, with about 3 to 5 percent of the population living with one that will never burst. “When I’m sitting on a bus with a hundred people, I know a couple of them have an aneurysm,” Ogilvy noted. “But not all of them will burst.”

So what is an aneurysm, anyway? Also called a cerebral aneurysm or intracranial aneurysm (IA), it’s a weak and bulging spot on the wall of a brain artery, according to the nonprofit Brain Aneurysm Foundation, “much like a thin balloon or weak spot on an inner tube.” Over time, as it weakens more, there is a chance of leaking or bursting. The most common type, referred to as “saccular,” is a berry shaped bulge; it accounts for 80 to 90 percent of aneurysms and is most likely to burst. The other kind, called “fusiform,” is much less common, and seldom ruptures.

There are some risk factors for having an aneurysm, according to Ogilvy, which include smoking (about 80 percent of his patients have been smokers, he said) and having a family history of the condition. And though the presence of one can be found through an MRA scan (which differs from an MRI because it looks at blood vessels rather than organs and tissues), there is much debate over what should be done when an aneurysm is detected, Ogilvy said. Making the decision whether or not to perform risky surgeries — which may include clipping the bulge or sealing it from within (called endovascular embolization) — will depend on many factors, including the size and location of the aneurysm, as well as the age and health of the patient. But even screening for them in the first place is not as simple as it sounds.

“You can’t just go screening everyone in the U.S.,” Ogilvy said. “If we did, it would be cost-prohibitive [to the provider], and some HMOs won’t pay for it at all.” Many times, when aneurysms are found, they’re in patients undergoing screenings for other reasons, including head injuries caused in accidents. But it’s certainly worth asking about if you think you’re having symptoms, which —when they do appear (and they don’t always) — can include double vision, difficulty speaking, pain behind an eye, or what some may describe as “the worst headache of my life,” Ogilvy said. But in Plimpton’s case, he believes, “It must have burst in a way so severe, there was nothing they could do.”

So, bottom line: What can you do? Stop smoking, for starters. And if you’ve had at least two instances of aneurysms in your family’s history, consider getting screened. Beyond that, keep calm and carry on.

yahoo news story on 12-11-10 Manu Ginobili
YAHOO NEWS 12-11-10 NBA BASKETBALL PLAYER Manu Ginobili SAYS HE & OTHER PLAYERS SAW A UFO OVER THE STAPLES CENTER

LOS ANGELES – Manu Ginobili of the San Antonio Spurs had an encounter with a UFO off court – and on.

Manu Ginobili saw a UFO in Los Angeles last week, and the part of the incident was captured on video.

TMZ.com has the exclusive footage of the encounter outside the arena, in which the San Antonio Spurs star can be seen looking at something strange in the LA night sky.

Was it a plane, or was it an Unidentified Flying Object?

Authorities confirmed today that it was a UFO. A UFO that apparently is stalking the Argentinian star. Ginobili first saw the UFO while running down the court in the third quarter of the Spurs game against the Los Angeles Lakers. Ginobili fell to the ground and pointed to the ceiling of the Staples Center, “I see a UFO, I see a UFO,” Ginobili shouted to his confused teammates and the Lakers.

Ginobili then ran around the arena, trying to convince everybody that the UFO was going to crash through the ceiling of the Staples Center. His teammates didn’t seem worried, but they did see the UFO as well:

Later, outside the arena, Ginobili saw the UFO again. That’s when TMZ caught him on tape.

Ginobili apparently decided to research the matter himself. He determined that alien spaceship was from Planet Zeeba. “I could tell by the red triangular formulations underneath the spaceship.” Ginobili plans to go to Washington D.C. to confirm his sighting with the government.

Ginobili told everyone that men in dark suits and sunglasses had showed up at his front step and told him that they were from Planet Zeeba and meant no harm to him – not only that, but they told him they were big fans of his.

Ginobili also denied claims that it was a weather balloon. “There is a government cover-up going on, it’s just like Rosewell.”

“The good thing is I’m not the only one that saw it,” Ginobili said. “I’m not totally crazy.”

Ginobili is convinced that there is life on other planets and that there is an alien invasion occurring at this very moment. He hopes to one day travel to Planet Zeeba. “Maybe they play basketball there.”

WHAT TO DO IF A BUGLAR GETS INSIDE YOU HOME WHILE YOU ARE HOME


Don't throw dryer sheets away — here are 45 different ways to use them
.


Business Insider
By Megan Willett

I’ve been using dryer sheets in my laundry for years. And unsurprisingly, I'd throw them away once I was done.

But it turns out I might have been losing out on hundreds of dollars in savings by not re-purposing those same used dryer sheets into Swifter pads, dusters, bathroom cleaners, and more.

From cleaning oven racks overnight to warding off insects, keep reading to see the 45 things you can do with dryer sheets.

OUTDOORS
.bugs on car stained A used dryer sheet can help you clean dead bugs off of your car without ruining the paint job.

Clean bugs off from of car: Take a used or new dryer sheet and get it wet. Wring it out and wipe down your car — the bugs will just slough off without ruining your paint job.

Ward off bugs: Turns out, there’s actually some science to back up this old wives tale, according to Smithsonian Magazine. If you keep a dryer sheet in your pocket, it will keep away bugs because it has both linalool, a toxin that is found in lavender and basil, as well as beta-citronella, which is used to repel mosquitoes.

Start a fire: You can use any old dryer sheets you have lying around as kindling to start a fire — plus, it will smell pretty good, too.

Freshen your car: Keep an open box of dryer sheets in your car. The sheets will make your call smell like laundry for well over three months, and if you ever need a freshness pick up, you can rub a sheet on your clothes.

PERSONAL APPEARANCE A dryer sheet can help tame static-y hair.

De-static hair: If your hair is static-y because of the weather or lack of humidity, wipe down your brushes and combs with a dryer sheet as well as use the sheet to smooth away any fly-aways.

Deodorant marks: If you get any deodorant marks on your shirt, take a used dryer sheet and crumple it into a ball and rub the fabric with short, quick strokes. This should erase any marks.

Get rid of static cling: If your dress or shirt are sticking to you because of static, rub the underside of the shirt as well as your body with a dryer sheet.

Take off glitter nail polish: Glitter polish on your nails is fun, but the glitter can be extremely hard to get off. Dryer sheets soaked in nail polish remover will easily help you remove glitter nail polish with minimal scrubbing.

DEODORIZING

Stick a dryer sheet in your vacuum bag to not only deodorize your vacuum, but the entire room.

Vacuum cleaner bag: If your vacuum is starting to have a weird smell or you just want your entire home to smell like laundry, place a dryer sheet inside the vacuum bag. It will deodorize any musk and make each room smell amazing.

Keeps clothes fresh while traveling: Place a dryer sheet in your suitcase — it will keep you clothes smelling amazing and fresh, no matter how long it takes you to reach your destination.

Deodorize shoes: Stick balled up dryer sheets in shoes to get rid of any unwanted smells. They’ll neutralize and even improve odors overnight.

Deodorize dirty clothes: Place a dryer sheet at the bottom of your hamper to keep your dirty clothes from stinking up your room. Even a single sheet goes a long way.

Freshen a room: If you have an air conditioner, you can place a dryer sheet on top of the filter. It will stay put even without any tape and will make your entire room smell amazing. You can do the same thing by taping a dryer sheet to any heating or air conditioning vent in the home, too.

Deodorize a diaper bag: Keep your diaper bag smelling fresh by placing a few strategic dryer sheets in the pockets. If you roll up a dirty diaper, stick another dryer sheet in there to help with any odor.

Make books smell fresh: Most people love the smell of books, but if your books are smelling too moldy for your taste, stick a dryer sheet within the pages. It also makes a handy bookmark.

Freshen your pillowcase: To keep you sheets smelling fresh for longer, stick a dryer sheet inside your pillow cases as well as under your sheets between the mattress.

Keep drawers smelling good: Throw a few dryer sheets in your drawers or closet before adding back in your clothes. Your shirts and pants will smell amazing, even if they sit in there for months.

Hide inside the toilet paper roll: Stick a rolled up dryer sheet inside your toilet paper roll. Every time the roll spins, there will be a burst of scent.

DIY smoke freshener: If you smoke, you can blow it through a toilet paper tube with a dryer sheet attached on one end secured with a rubber band. This will go a long way towards keeping your room from smelling like smoke.

Keep storage items smelling fresh: When you pack anything like camping gear or winter clothes away, throw in a dryer sheet to keep them smelling great until you need them again.

Remove hard-to-get-rid-of odors: If you have any really offensive odors that you just can’t get rid of (think vomit stains or worse), place a few dryer sheets on the area and sprinkle with coffee grounds. Leave it over night, and it should smell like new by morning.

CLEANING
Soaking paintbrushes in warm water with a dryer sheet will help clean them off.

Clean paint brushes: Place dirty paintbrushes in a sink full of warm water and add a dryer sheet. Wait a few hours or overnight before washing off the paint. You’ll find it very easy to remove.

Soak and scrub greasy pans: If there’s baked on gunk on any of your pots or pans, take a page out of Martha Stewart’s book and soak them with a dryer sheet and warm weather. Let it sit over night and in the morning, all the baked on crud will easily come off.

Remove soap scum from shower doors: If you have some dryer sheets lying around, use them to power through soap residue. They’ll even suds up a bit and make your bathroom smell amazing.

Clean oven racks: Oven racks accumulate grime like crazy. To clean yours once and for all, gather dryer sheets and a dash of dish soap in a bathtub filled with hot water. Let it sit over night with your oven racks and you’ll be astounded how easily the grease comes off.

Clean your laundry room: After you’re done with your laundry, wipe down the dryer and lint tray with the used dryer sheet. Since they’re good at collecting dust and hair, they’ll pick up extra particles.

Clean chrome: A wet dryer sheet can clean your bathroom and kitchen chrome extremely well. It also works on car bumpers, too.

Wipe away spilled dry goods: If flour or powders spill, take a used dryer sheet and clean it up. The sheets are great at capturing small particles and will do a better job than a paper towel.

Wash hair brushes: If your hair brushes are looking a little worse for the wear, soak them in warm water with a few dryer sheets. They’ll come out looking like new.

Toilet ring cleaner: Take your used dryer sheets and use them to scrub the inside of your toilet. The ring will be gone in one swipe.

Clean your iron: Every once in a while, you need to clean the bottom of your iron from any residue. Set your iron on a low setting and run it over a dryer sheet for a few minutes or until the grime comes off and onto the dryer sheet.

Clean scissor blades: Clean your scissors without dulling the blades by wiping them with a dryer sheet — it will remove all the dust and dirt that can dull your scissors over time.

Clean dirty glasses with your used dryer sheets.

Clean smudges from glasses: Rubbing your glasses with dryer sheets will clean off any unwanted smudges in a pinch.

Swifter alternative: Use your used dryer sheets as Swiffer pad alternatives. They’ll pick up a comparable amount of dust and crud off your floors and are actually much cheaper.

Wipe down window blinds: Blinds are hard to clean, but over time they will collect a lot of dust. Wipe them down with a used dryer sheet to remove excess dirt.

Pet hair removal: If you find yourself covered in pet fur, rub a used dryer sheet all over — the dryer sheet will catch all the hair and also take away any lingering animal scent.

All household dusting: Take any used dryer sheet and use it to dust around the house, from your TV and computer screen to your mantle. It’s extremely effective at trapping hair and dust.

Clean baseboards: Baseboards collect a lot of grime over time. Run a dryer sheet along your baseboard every few weeks to pick up unwanted hair and dust and keep it from coming back.

MISCELLANEOUS

Prevent new tennis shoes from squeaking by rubbing the bottoms with a dryer sheet.

De-squeak new shoes: If your brand new shoes are squeaking too much, rub them with a dryer sheet on the bottom. No more squeaking.

Add texture to cards: If you’re crafty and have used dryer sheets hanging around, you can DIY a textured card by pasting a dryer sheet on top of the card of your choice. See instructions and a few options here.

DIY scented sachet: Make a pretty sachet for storing lavender or other scents inside a dryer sheet. The combination of dryer sheets with the lavender smells amazing and is the perfect addition to drawers or closets.

DIY flowers: There’s a DIY project that turns tea-stained dryer sheets into roses. They’ll still smell good and add some rustic charm to your home.

DIY coffee table Christmas tree: Make your own Christmas tree out of dryer sheets. All it takes is a Styrofoam cone, some tulle, and a bunch of used dryer sheets. Click here to see instructions.

Keep sewing thread from knotting: Keep thread from tangling or knotting while you sew by running a needle and thread through a dryer sheet before knotting. It will help de-static the thread and make sewing more seamless.

Tack cloth substitute: If you need a tack cloth in a pinch, substitute it for a dryer sheet. The sheet will also pick up spare lint and dust from any surface you’re wiping down about as well as a tack cloth will.

YAHOO NEWS 4-16-15 THE #1 CAUSE OF DEPRESSION EVERYWHERE

This harmful experience can greatly increase someone’s odds for having depression — more so if you’re genetically prone to it. (Photo: Corbis)


According to a group of researchers from around the world (including those from London and various regions in Spain), people who have suffered from abuse during their childhood are more likely to be diagnosed with clinical depression — and even more so if they are genetically predisposed to the condition.

Over a three-year period, scientists analyzed patients from 41 different health clinics in seven Spanish provinces who ranged in age from 18 to 75. And here’s what they discovered through genetic testing: The participants who were shown to have limited gene function implied in both BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor, a protein-coding gene) and serotonin transmission were extra-sensitive to the damaging effects of child abuse — whether the abuse was psychological, physical or sexual. In other words, this particular lack of gene activity mixed with an abusive history can result in an increased risk for suffering from depression.

Blanca Gutiérrez, a professor in the psychiatry department at the University of Granada and the lead coordinator of this study, says that these findings — which were recently published in the Journal of Psychiatry and Neuroscience — are significant in terms of treatment.

“It is an important result, which proves a triple genetic-environmental sort of interaction whose relevance is even more important if we take into consideration that the response to antidepressants appears to be fundamentally mediated through proteins codified by the two genes we have studied,” she states in a press release.

Anti-Aging Scientists Bet $1-Million on Who Will Die First

By MONEY MORNING STAFF REPORTS - Friday, April 10, 2015

Two anti-aging scientists, both working on different longevity treatments, have made a shocking wager.

Doctor Dmitry Kaminskiy and Doctor Alex Zhavoronkov have made a bet that they'll live longer.

Whoever dies first, will leave $1 million to the other.

The only rule: They can't kill each other.

Dr. Zhavoronkoy is the CEO of the anti-aging drug company Insilico Medicine. He believes his company's therapies give him the advantage in the competition.

However, Kaminkiy is one year younger, which may prove to be a deciding factor. But it's not the only trick up his sleeve.

"Access to a few hundred million dollars, state of the art information systems and a venture fund investing in longevity companies also helps," says Kaminskiy.

No matter who wins, neither of them expect to claim the prize until well after their 100 birthday.

That's because there have recently been a series of medical breakthroughs that are redefining the very concept of aging.

Silicon Valley Venture Capitalist and biotech advisor, Michael Robinson says, "I expect it to be at least 100 years - probably longer - until we see a winner of this bet.

Companies aren't too eager to talk about this right now because it's so hard to believe, but the treatments in the development pipeline right now are literally undoing aging.

In the next decade it's possible that 100 will be looked at as the new 20."

Robinson credits this incredible longevity to two Nobel Prize winning discoveries.

In a recent presentation, he discussed the work being done at MIT, Harvard, Stanford, and top research facilities around the world.

"Aging happens on the cellular level. It's a fault in our chromosomes. We now have the ability to fix that fault," Robinson says. "We're using this in human cells and they're aging backwards by 25 years. It's incredible."

How long before these therapies leave the lab and becomes available to the general public?

Robinson says, "We're looking at a time line of about 24 months before the first one hits the market."

YAHOO NEWS 1-4-15 Most of us toss fruit peels in the trash, because what else are you going to do with them? Eat them! It turns out they’re not just edible, but the skin and rind of some fruits is actually loaded with fantastic beauty and health benefits. Kimberly Snyder, celebrity nutritionist and author of The Beauty Detox Foods, says there are many great ways to incorporate these nutrient-rich peels into your diet.

“The peel can contain up to three to four times higher a concentration of fiber as the fruit inside,” says Snyder. “Fiber is an important part of the body’s process when it comes to cleansing toxins from the body. Peels also contain a bevy of anti-aging antioxidants and vitamins.” By the way, they’re also very low in calories, fats, and sugars.

“For some citrus fruits like oranges, the peel has even higher levels of vitamin C than the juice,” says Snyder. The peel of fresh orange also contains vitamin A, B vitamins, and minerals such as zinc, calcium, selenium, and manganese. But how are you supposed to eat them? Snyder suggests zesting citrus peels with a grater into your salad dressing or tossing a piece of the peel into smoothies. “I was recently in Thailand doing a few weeks of a cooking intensive, and we threw kaffir lime peel into the mortar and pestle for certain chili pastes.”

What about banana peels? Sounds gross, but they actually increase serotonin levels, which can boost your mood. Like the fruit, they’re a good source of potassium, but Snyder says they contain much more soluble fiber (which makes you feel full and help lower bad cholesterols) and insoluble fiber (which keeps your gastrointestinal tract moving). In some parts of the world like India and Asia it’s common to cook or fry banana peels or use them in desserts. Try adding a piece into a smoothie or pureeing a few tablespoons and mixing into your cake recipes. Waiting till the fruit is more ripe will yield thinner, tastier skin.

Watermelon rinds are another great option since they contain vitamin C, vitamin B6, and citrulline, an amino acid that helps dilate blood vessels to improve circulation. Peel off the green skin and put the white rind into your juicer along with the juicy pink parts.

Snyder does offer one important piece of advice when eating peels: buy organic. “Not only are organic foods generally more nutritious since they are usually grown in better quality soil, but they also do not contain pesticides,” she says. While organic bananas are not typically much more costly than conventional ones, some organic produce can be pricey. When in doubt, consult the Environmental Working Group’s “Dirty Dozen” items with the most pesticides used. (Check out the full list here.) “If you plan on using the zest or peel of fruits, I would stick to organic as the pesticides can seep into the peel and it may be not possible to truly remove them through washing.”

Don’t forget the cores and seeds! “Pineapple cores are less juicy and a bit harder, but are still very nutritious and filled with the enzyme bromelain, known to have anti-inflammatory and cleansing effects in the body,” says Snyder. She also says eating a small amount of papaya seeds can have anti-parasitic, anti-bacterial effects, and can help with liver detoxification—hello, hangover cure.


YAHOO NEWS November 26, 2014 8:00 PM EST

A woman named "Jackie," who claims to be a former NASA employee, called Coast to Coast AM in the U.S. She claimed she had seen evidence of two human figures walking towards the Viking lander on Mars in 1979.

A color mosaic taken by NASA's Mars Curiosity rover Mast Camera (mastcam) shows strata exposed along the margins of the valleys in the "Pahrump Hills" region on Mars in this undated handout photo courtesy of NASA. After 18 months of driving, scientists on September 11, 2014, announced that Curiosity had arrived at the base of Mount Sharp ahead of schedule, thanks to a somewhat serendipitous decision to take an alternative path that would be gentler on the rover's damaged wheels. Within two weeks, Curiosity will reach an outcrop of rock called Pahrump Hills, where the first drill samples of Mount Sharp real estate will be made.

The "former NASA employee" asked the radio show presenter to solve a 27-year-old mystery for her. She claimed she had worked for NASA and that her job was to handle the downlink telemetry from the lander. The Viking lander was the first vehicle to send back pictures of the surface of the Red Planet.

She said that while she was working, she saw two people walking across the Martian surface. She continued that she and six colleagues were watching the footage of the Viking rover moving around on multiple screens when she noticed two men in spacesuits walking to the Viking Explorer from the horizon. She added the men's suits looked protective but unlike what astronauts wore.

The "former NASA employee" said she and her colleagues were maintaining the equipment when suddenly the video feed got cut off. She went on to say that when they ran upstairs, they found the door was locked and paper was taped over the door so nothing could be seen. She posed a question to the radio presenter asking whether or not the two men she saw were guys from NASA. The agency has yet to comment on the claim.

Blogs that report on UFO and conspiracy theories have backed the "former NASA employee." They claimed humans had been on Mars to polish off the lander's solar panels. Metro.co.uk wrote that this seemed off because if the humans were there, they could have filled petrol into the lander or take photos themselves. A few other conspiracy theorists claimed that in the sixties, there were secret landings on Mars. They further claimed that the Apollo landings were a cover-up for wider exploration of the solar system.

An audio recording, titled "NASA Worker Sees Men Walking Over To Viking Lander On Mars", was posted on YouTube by YouTube channel Starman Chronicles. The video has managed to get more than 11,000 views and about 16 comments as of this writing. Listen to the audio recording below:

YAHOO NEWS 12-11-10 NBA BASKETBALL PLAYER Manu Ginobili SAYS HE & OTHER PLAYERS SAW A UFO OVER THE STAPLES CENTER

LOS ANGELES – Manu Ginobili of the San Antonio Spurs had an encounter with a UFO off court – and on.

Manu Ginobili saw a UFO in Los Angeles last week, and the part of the incident was captured on video.

TMZ.com has the exclusive footage of the encounter outside the arena, in which the San Antonio Spurs star can be seen looking at something strange in the LA night sky.

Was it a plane, or was it an Unidentified Flying Object?

Authorities confirmed today that it was a UFO. A UFO that apparently is stalking the Argentinian star. Ginobili first saw the UFO while running down the court in the third quarter of the Spurs game against the Los Angeles Lakers. Ginobili fell to the ground and pointed to the ceiling of the Staples Center, “I see a UFO, I see a UFO,” Ginobili shouted to his confused teammates and the Lakers.

Ginobili then ran around the arena, trying to convince everybody that the UFO was going to crash through the ceiling of the Staples Center. His teammates didn’t seem worried, but they did see the UFO as well:

Later, outside the arena, Ginobili saw the UFO again. That’s when TMZ caught him on tape.

Ginobili apparently decided to research the matter himself. He determined that alien spaceship was from Planet Zeeba. “I could tell by the red triangular formulations underneath the spaceship.” Ginobili plans to go to Washington D.C. to confirm his sighting with the government.

Ginobili told everyone that men in dark suits and sunglasses had showed up at his front step and told him that they were from Planet Zeeba and meant no harm to him – not only that, but they told him they were big fans of his.

Ginobili also denied claims that it was a weather balloon. “There is a government cover-up going on, it’s just like Rosewell.”

“The good thing is I’m not the only one that saw it,” Ginobili said. “I’m not totally crazy.”

Ginobili is convinced that there is life on other planets and that there is an alien invasion occurring at this very moment. He hopes to one day travel to Planet Zeeba. “Maybe they play basketball there.”

Scientists Discover New Connection Between Red Meat And Cancer
Yahoo News December 31 2014 10:22

Scientists have discovered what they believe to be the connection between red meat and cancer, which have long been linked by researchers. A team of scientists from the University of California San Diego (UCSD) discovered this week that red meats including beef, pork and lamb contain a sugar that's created naturally by many other meat-eating animals but not by humans.

The sugar identified in the study, dubbed Neu5GC, caused tumors in mice genetically engineered to not produce the compound in a lab study conducted by the researchers. The results help provide a level of groundbreaking understanding about the cancer-causing effects of red meat consumption by humans.

“Until now, all of our evidence linking Neu5Gc to cancer was circumstantial or indirectly predicted from somewhat artificial experimental setups,” Dr Ajit Varki, a professor of medicine and cellular and molecular medicine at UCSD, said in a press release announcing the breakthrough. “This is the first time we have directly shown that mimicking the exact situation in humans -- feeding nonhuman Neu5Gc and inducing anti-Neu5Gc antibodies -- increases spontaneous cancers in mice.”

But Varki said that though Neu5Gc throws “gasoline on the fire,” it does not directly cause cancer in those who eat it, according to The Daily Mail. It is instead a catalyst of sorts for cancer.

The scientists emphasize that moderate consumption of red meat does have nutritional benefits like providing protein, vitamins and minerals, according to the Telegraph. Humans should eat 2.5 ounces or less of red meat per day, the equivalent of one lamb chop or two slices of roast beef, according to health experts.

The findings of the researchers seem to debunk the popularly held belief that grilling red meat produces carcinogenic chemicals, thus leading to cancer in humans, according to The San Diego Union-Tribune.

THE TRUTH A BOUT THE PROSTATE CANCER SCAM. 70% OF ALL MEN HAVE PROSTATE CANCER BY AGE 80, BUT ONLY 1 IN 1000 DIE FROM IT. YAHOO NEWS 10-27-14

Canadian guidelines recommend against prostate cancer test

(Reuters Health) - Men should not get a common blood test to screen for prostate cancer, according to new healthcare guidelines from Canada.

The potential for harm after prostate-specific antigen (PSA) testing outweighs the benefit, says the Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care.

“The ratio seems to be on the harm side - not the benefit side,” said Dr. Neil Bell, a member of the Task Force and chair of its prostate cancer screening working group.

The Canadian group is part of a growing list of medical organizations that either question or don’t recommend the test, which looks for elevated levels of a protein produced by the prostate gland.

The government-backed U.S. Preventive Services Task Force does not recommend PSA screening for prostate cancer. Additionally, the American College of Physicians does not recommend PSA screening among men younger than age 50 and older than age 69. Also, it says men ages 50 to 69 should be told about the “limited potential benefits and substantial harms” of screening before being offered the test.

Prostate cancer is the most common non-skin cancer among men and the third leading cause of cancer-related death among men, but the Task Force writes in the Canadian Medical Association Journal that the lifetime risk of prostate cancer death is only about 4 percent.

“The most typical feeling most people have is, ‘If I diagnose cancer early and I treat it, I get a better outcome,’” Bell said. “For prostate cancer, that doesn’t hold for a number of reasons.”

Specifically, most prostate cancers would never cause men to die or feel sick, said Bell, who is also a family physician and professor at the University of Alberta in Edmonton.

He and his colleagues write that about 70 percent of men between ages 70 and 79 are found to have undiagnosed prostate cancer after they die.

The new guidelines are based on a review of medical evidence related to PSA testing.

Overall, they found strong evidence showing that men would likely experience more harm than benefit from PSA screening if they're younger than 55 or older than 70.

The researchers say that for every 1,000 men between ages 55 and 69 screened using PSA, one will be saved from death by the test.

Of the other 999 who get screened by PSA, 720 will test negative. Of the 280 who will test positive, 178 will get additional testing - such as invasive biopsies - that ultimately show they don’t have cancer.

Of the 102 correctly diagnosed with prostate cancer by the PSA screening, 33 will be diagnosed with cancer that would not have caused them to become ill or die and end up with complications related to their treatment. Five men will die regardless of whether they get PSA screening.

“Available evidence does not conclusively show that PSA screening will reduce prostate cancer mortality, but it clearly shows an increased risk of harm,” they write. “The task force recommends that the PSA test should not be used to screen for prostate cancer.”

In an editorial, the University of Toronto’s Dr. Murray Krahn argues that doctors should not take away the choice of PSA testing from men.

“There clearly is not enough evidence to mount an organized screening program,” he writes. “However, the falling overall mortality in some countries that screen intensively, the evidence that treatment may have a very modest disease-specific mortality benefit, and the highly variable preferences for treatment outcomes suggest to me that we should not push patients out of decision-making in this area.”

The Task Force does write in its recommendations that some men may place more value on a small reduction in the risk of death and not be as concerned with the possible harm of the screening. Those men may choose to be screened, they write.

“There are some men who may want that benefit,” Bell said.

YAHOO NEWS 11-1-14 MILK LINKED TO AN INCREASED DEATH RATE. Cut Back on the Calcium

Think milk is good for you? You might want to think again – especially if you’re a woman, according to a new study published in the British Medical Journal. Researchers from Uppsala University in Sweden found that women who drank three glasses or more of milk per day were at double the risk of dying as women who didn’t, and also had a 50 percent higher risk of fractures.

The researchers began examining the diets of 61,400 women between 1987 and 1990, and then followed them for 20 years, while also tracking 45,300 men for 11 years. While men showed a small increased risk of death, the risk in women was much higher. While the researchers aren’t sure what caused the link between milk consumption and higher mortality risk, they think it might have to do with lactose, the primary sugar in milk, causing oxidative stress in the body.

Although the results sound scary, the researchers are urging people to take them with a grain of salt, saying more research is needed before the recommend less milk consumption. However, lead author Karl Michaelsson, a professor in the department of surgical sciences at Uppsala University, admitted he’s already started drinking less. "The study findings have, for myself, been strong enough to cut down on my milk consumption," he said, according to HealthDay.

92% CANCER CURE RATE - DR. LEONARD COLDWELL


DOCTOR SAYS ANY CANCER CAN BE CURED IN 2-6 WEEKS


It’s probably not something you think about every day, whether or not the foods you are eating could contain carcinogens, but with almost 1.5 million people diagnosed with some type of cancer just last year, perhaps it’s time to look at what is in our foods that could be causing such a huge number of new cancer patients. Here is a list of the top 10 foods that you most likely consume every day that may contain carcinogens or be suspected of causing cancer.
Microwave Popcorn

Those little bags of popcorn are so convenient to just stick in the microwave, you wouldn’t think for a minute that they could be dangerous to your health, but they are.

First, let’s talk about the bag itself. Proved by Wikipedia, conventional microwave popcorn bags are lined with a chemical called perfluorooctanoic acid ( PFOA). This is a toxin you can find in Teflon also. According to a recent study at the University of California, PFOA is linked to infertility in women. Numerous studies in lab animals and humans show that exposure to PFOA significantly increases the risk of kidney, bladder, liver, pancreas and testicular cancers. You can read more about this substance and the above mentioned studies at cancer.org.

DIET ANYTHING

Diet foods, including frozen foods, or prepackaged foods labeled as “diet” or “low fat”, including diet sodas, generally contain aspartame, which is a chemical, artificial sweetener that we talk about in detail above. There are numerous studies showing that aspartame causes many diseases and sicknesses such as cancers, birth defects, and heart problems.

All “diet” food is chemically processed and made from super refined ingredients, excessive sodium levels, as well as artificial colors and flavors to make it taste good. Don’t ever forget, artificial anything is NOT real food! Although the FDA says that all these added chemicals are safe to eat, you might want to take their advice with a grain of salt. After all, don’t they also tell you that sugar and vegetable oils are safe to eat? (Not to mention GMO’s and fast food!)

There have been many studies that show that these additives, for some people, can actually be addicting. They feed that “feel good” part in your brain, similar to cocaine! Well, that actually makes sense because if you become addicted to these foods, the companies making them are certain to score a lot of money, aren’t they?


ALCOHOL

An American study that followed the diet and lifestyles of more than 200,000 women for almost 14 years found that postmenopausal women who drank one drink per day or less had an almost 30 percent increase in breast cancer rates compared to women who did not drink at all.

Alcohol use is the second leading cause of cancer, right behind tobacco use. While a moderate or low consumption of alcohol can be healthy and lead to a reduced risk of heart disease, excessive drinking is known to cause heart failure, stroke, and sudden death. In 2007, experts working for the World Health Organizations International Agency for Research on Cancer looked at the scientific evidence regarding cancer and alcohol use from 27 different studies. They found sufficient evidence to state that excessive alcohol use is the main cause of mouth, esophagus, liver, colon, mouth, rectum, and female breast cancers.

Don’t fret! You can still enjoy that glass of wine with dinner, but, for your health’s sake, no more than one!


TOP 16 CANCER CAUSING FOODS YOU EAT EVERYDAY


#1 CANCER CAUSING FOOD, MICROWAVE POPCORN YAHOO NEWS 10-28-14 Now, let’s talk about the contents. Although every manufacturer uses slightly different ingredients, most of them use soybean oil (a GMO product) as well as various preservatives such as propyl gallate, a chemical that is causes stomach problems and skin rashes. Now they don’t actually say they are using GMO corn kernels, but that’s because the government says they don’t have to. Even if they don’t use GMO corn, you can bet they aren’t using organic corn!

Also, applied to the popcorn itself, is a chemical called diacetyl. Use of this chemical caused Conagra Foods to remove it from their brand of popcorn, ACT, because it was causing lung diseases in the workers at their factory.

HOW TO UNCLOG DRAINS YAHOO NEWS 2-25-15
We’ve all experienced the warning signs: water pooling at your feet in the shower; sink water draining just a tad bit slower. And then slower, and slower still. Until one day you can’t ignore it any longer, you’ve got to unclog the drain. It’s always best to take preventative measures, but we’re all human so that doesn’t always happen.
There’s also different severities of clogs, and just as many ways to treat them. But don’t feel overwhelmed, here’s a list that will guide you through the rising tide in your bathroom.

Baking Soda and Vinegar This method probably won’t work on your toughest clogs. But if you’ve got less than 100% blockage, this is a safe and effective technique that also spares you from having to physically fish the clog monster out of your drain and meeting it face-to-face.

1. Boil a pot of water and then slowly pour it down the drain. Leave one cup of the boiled water in the pot for later.
2. Immediately dump in 1/3 cup of baking soda and let it sit for five minutes.
3. In the pot, mix a cup of vinegar into the hot water. Pour the mixture into the drain. Watch it fizz! Let it sit for 20 minutes.
4. Flush the mixture down with an additional pot of boiling water.

The Wire Hanger
It doesn’t get more simple than this. And for simple clogs, it also doesn’t get more effective than this.
First, unwind the neck of the hanger. Then straighten out the two elbows as much as you can. But leave the hook! That’s the part that’s going to do the dirty work.
At the end opposite of the hook, bend the last three inches to give yourself a handle. If the hook can’t fit through the drain’s cover, you’ll first have to remove the cover. Lower the wire down until you feel some resistance down there. Now, push down and pull up about five times. Then pull the wire all the way out of the drain, and hopefully you’ll be saying, “Gross.” Because that means you’ve successfully pulled the nasty clog out from its lair.

The Millipede
This little guy can really work wonders. Disgusting wonders. Just uncoil it and stick the grasping end down your drain. Now crank it a few times, then pull up!
This option is effective and costs next to nothing. All it is is a single-use plastic stick with some upward-facing barbs on it, but it works. Especially for hair clogs. Just stick it down your drain, pull it right back up, and you’re done.

The Wet/Dry Vacuum
If you’ve got a particularly stubborn clog or just have a hankering for really showing your drain who’s boss, then look no further than the trusty wet/dry vac. There are even clog cleaning attachments available.

Since there are many variations of these vacuums, you’ll need to follow the specific instructions of your particular model for this job. But suffice it to say, these vacuums have a good deal of power and barring a clog made of set concrete, you’ll have full drain clearance in no time.

The Toilet Bomb
This technique is just for your toilet, but it’s too cool not to mention.
Here’s what you’ll need:
⦁ 2 cups baking soda
⦁ 1/4 cup ⦁ Epsom salt
⦁ 9 tablespoons liquid dish detergent
⦁ Muffin tin
⦁ Muffin liners
First, put your muffin liners into the tin. Mix together baking soda and Epsom salt. Then slowly stir in the detergent, just a tablespoon or so at a time. Now scoop the mixture into the liners and dry overnight (at least eight hours) at room temperature.
Remove one of the bombs from its liner and put it in your toilet. Then pour five cups of hot water in after it. Now wait at four hours. Then flush! Voila.
This is a really effective, cheap and actually kinda fun way to unclog your toilet that doesn’t involve harsh chemicals like sodium hypochlorite or hydrochloric acid. And you know have extra pre-made bombs for your next backup.
Related story on Yahoo Makers: You Haven’t Seen Bathroom Floors Like This
The Bellows Plunger
These mini plungers can exert some pretty impressive force that’ll get your clog moving right along. The bellows design builds up pressure behind the clog and after a few pumps shoots the clog right down your drain. This is another no-mess option that’s both cheap, effective and chemical-free.
One final note: When it comes to clogs, many people will go straight for a bottle of Drano. Well, this should be avoided. If you’ve got plastic pipes, it’ll eat away at them pretty quickly. And if you’ve got metal piping, it can corrode those, too. Also, they’re quite toxic for humans and the environment. To top it off, they’re often not that effective on the type of clogs you see most often in the sink or shower. Now that you’re familiar with so many perfectly effective alternatives, there’s no real reason to resort to resort to harsh chemicals.

1. Boil the potatoes until they’re cooked as you would normally do – must be fork-tender

2. Place the potatoes in a bowl of ice water for 5-10 seconds

3. Simply pull the skin off. The temperature change makes it a snap.

Make sure to prepare the bowl of ice water beforehand, and know that this trick works best on Russet potatoes. Happy peeling!

YAHOO NEWS 6-9-15 8 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD STOP DRINKING DIET SODA!

You've decided to give up diet soda—good idea! Maybe you weren't hitting your weight-loss goals or couldn't stomach that long list of ingredients anymore. Or perhaps you heard one too many times that it's just not good for you.

Whatever the reason, eliminating diet soda from your diet will improve your health from head to toe. Research on diet soda is still in its infancy, but there's enough out there to identify what you can look forward to when you put down the can and cool down with an unsweetened iced tea instead.

Migraines Disappear and Focus Sharpens
It turns out the headaches you expected from a diet-soda withdrawal didn't materialize. And now that you've quit the stuff, you probably find yourself thinking clearly for the first time in a while. That's because the chemicals that make up the artificial sweetener aspartame may have altered brain chemicals, nerve signals, and the brain's reward system, which leads to headaches, anxiety, and insomnia, according to a review in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition. And a 2013 animal study found that rats that drank diet soda had damaged cells and nerve endings in the cerebellum—the part of the brain responsible for motor skills. (If you're still drinking diet soda, here's what's happening in your body right now.)

Taste Buds Are More Sensitive
It's not your imagination: Without your usual diet soda chaser, you may find that food has more flavor. It has subtlety. It's more enjoyable. That's because the artificial sweeteners in your diet soda overwhelmed your taste buds with an onslaught of sweetness. Aspartame ranks 200 hundreds times sweeter than table sugar. Splenda? 600 times. In fact, brain scans show that diet soda alters sweet receptors in the brain and prolongs sugar cravings rather than satisfies them. "We often see patients change snack choices when they give up diet soda," says Heather Bainbridge, R.D., from Columbia University Medical Center Weight Control Center. "Rather than needing sugary treats or something really salty like pretzels and chips, they reach for an apple and a piece of cheese. And when they try diet soda again, they find it intolerably sweet."

The Scale Finally Goes the Right Way
While you may have started drinking diet soda to facilitate weight loss, quitting it may actually do the trick. A recent nine-year study found older adults who drank diet soda continued to pack on belly fat. The study piggybacks on research that found each daily diet soda increases your chance of becoming obese in the next decade by 65 percent, and a study published in Diabetes Care that found drinking diet soft drinks daily was associated with an increase in metabolic syndrome—obesity, high blood-pressure, high triglycerides—which leads to heart disease and diabetes.

Bones Strengthen
Putting down the soda may be the best way to improve your bone strength and reduce your risk of fractures. One 2014 study found that each daily soda increased the chance of hip fracture by 14 percent for postmenopausal women. And another found that older women who drank cola had lower bone mineral density in their hips. The jury is still out on why soda has this effect, but the science pretty clearly suggests that a soda habit weakens your bones.

Your Attitude Toward Food Changes
Since diet sodas have no calories, people drinking them often feel it's okay to indulge elsewhere, finds Bainbridge. Often, she sees her diet soda-drinking patients make poor food choices, like a burger and fries, a piece of cake, or potato chips because they think they can afford those extra calories. Plus, soda often accompanies unhealthy foods. "Sometimes, those poor choices are built-up habits," she says. "You're conditioned to have soda with chips, fries, or something sweet. When you eliminate the soft drink, you also break the junk food habit."

You Handle Booze Better
It's a fact: Diet soda gets you drunk faster. When you mix it with alcohol, your stomach empties out faster than if you used regular soda, causing a drastic increase in blood-alcohol concentrations, according to an Australian study in the American Journal of Medicine. And when you add caffeine, look out. Another study in the journal Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research found that bar patrons who mixed drinks with diet colas were intoxicated much more easily and frequently. Your best bet for a mixer? Club soda, which is naturally sugar- and calorie-free.

Your Fat Storage and Diabetes Risks Decrease
Our hormones may explain the great paradox of why people gain weight when they switch to diet soda. A study in Diabetes Care found that drinking two-thirds of a diet soda before eating primed the pancreas to release a lot of the fat-storing hormone insulin. When the pancreas is overworked from creating insulin to control blood-sugar levels, diabetes rears its ugly head. And a recent study in Japan found that middle-aged men who drank one or more diet sodas daily were much more likely to develop type 2 diabetes over a seven-year period.

Kidney Function Improves
Now that your body no longer has to make sense of the unpronounceable ingredients in diet soda, your kidneys can get back to clearing toxins, stabilizing blood pressure, and absorbing minerals. One study looked at 11 years of data and found that women who drank two or more servings of diet soda doubled their chances of declining kidney function.

The most popular age to sign up for Social Security is 62, with 32 percent of men and 38 percent of women born in 1946 claiming benefits at that age. Starting benefits at age 62 provides valuable retirement income as soon as possible, but it also triggers a reduction in monthly payments because retirees collect them over a longer period of time. A 62-year-old who signs up for Social Security in 2014 will get 25 percent smaller checks than if he waited to claim at age 66, his full retirement age. Here's why many retirees claim Social Security at 62, even though it results in significantly smaller monthly payments.

Already out of the workforce. People who are unemployed at age 62 and unable to find a new job often sign up for Social Security to bring some income into the household. "Some people who did not plan to sign up at age 62 may have experienced a job loss during a bad economy, and they need the income," says Andy Landis, author of "Social Security: The Inside Story." Those who are employed full time between ages 60 and 62 are 30 percent less likely to claim Social Security early than those who no longer work full time, according to a new Government Accountability Office report. "Many unemployed older workers struggle to find new jobs and may face unique re-employment challenges, such as employer reluctance to hire older workers or out-of-date skills. And, long-term unemployment can motivate older workers to claim early Social Security," according to the report.

A strenuous job. People who work in physically demanding jobs including mechanics, construction, precision production, operators and farming are 55 percent more likely to claim Social Security benefits early than workers in other fields, GAO found. Those in managerial and professional jobs are 32 percent less likely to sign up early than other occupations. Workers without a college degree were also 23 percent more likely to claim early.

Have worked a long time. The 35 years in which you earn the most are used to calculate your Social Security payments. Those who haven't worked that long have zeros averaged into their calculation, which significantly reduces payments. Those who have worked at least 35 years by ages 60 through 62 are about 38 percent more likely to claim Social Security early compared with those with shorter work histories. "For people who have gaps in their earnings history, working a little bit longer to fill in the gaps can make a big difference in your Social Security payout," says William Meyer, founder and managing principal of Social Security Solutions, a company that analyzes Social Security claiming strategies. "If you work a little bit longer and you have a higher earnings year that can replace a lower earnings year, then it can be worthwhile."

IF YOU DON'T WANT TO DIE FROM A STORKE OR BRAIN ANERURYSM, QUIT SMOKING. 80% OF PEOPLE WITH BURSTING BLOOD VESSELS IN THEIR HEAD, SMOKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The sudden death of Martha Stewart’s younger sister Laura Plimpton from a ruptured brain aneurysm this week has no doubt sent much of the general population into a panic. So Yahoo Health turned to one of the country’s biggest experts in the field, Dr. Christopher Ogilvy, director of the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center Brain Aneurysm Institute in Boston, for some answers — which were not, unfortunately, all that comforting.

“About 20 percent of people who have an aneurysm rupture drop dead, while another 30 percent go on to die even if they manage to get treated,” he explained. “Of the survivors, about a third do OK, about a third wind up with serious deficits, and a third are in between.” The good news, however, is that brain aneurysms are relatively rare, with about 3 to 5 percent of the population living with one that will never burst. “When I’m sitting on a bus with a hundred people, I know a couple of them have an aneurysm,” Ogilvy noted. “But not all of them will burst.”

So what is an aneurysm, anyway? Also called a cerebral aneurysm or intracranial aneurysm (IA), it’s a weak and bulging spot on the wall of a brain artery, according to the nonprofit Brain Aneurysm Foundation, “much like a thin balloon or weak spot on an inner tube.” Over time, as it weakens more, there is a chance of leaking or bursting. The most common type, referred to as “saccular,” is a berry shaped bulge; it accounts for 80 to 90 percent of aneurysms and is most likely to burst. The other kind, called “fusiform,” is much less common, and seldom ruptures.

There are some risk factors for having an aneurysm, according to Ogilvy, which include smoking (about 80 percent of his patients have been smokers, he said) and having a family history of the condition. And though the presence of one can be found through an MRA scan (which differs from an MRI because it looks at blood vessels rather than organs and tissues), there is much debate over what should be done when an aneurysm is detected, Ogilvy said. Making the decision whether or not to perform risky surgeries — which may include clipping the bulge or sealing it from within (called endovascular embolization) — will depend on many factors, including the size and location of the aneurysm, as well as the age and health of the patient. But even screening for them in the first place is not as simple as it sounds.


“You can’t just go screening everyone in the U.S.,” Ogilvy said. “If we did, it would be cost-prohibitive [to the provider], and some HMOs won’t pay for it at all.” Many times, when aneurysms are found, they’re in patients undergoing screenings for other reasons, including head injuries caused in accidents. But it’s certainly worth asking about if you think you’re having symptoms, which —when they do appear (and they don’t always) — can include double vision, difficulty speaking, pain behind an eye, or what some may describe as “the worst headache of my life,” Ogilvy said. But in Plimpton’s case, he believes, “It must have burst in a way so severe, there was nothing they could do.”

So, bottom line: What can you do? Stop smoking, for starters. And if you’ve had at least two instances of aneurysms in your family’s history, consider getting screened. Beyond that, keep calm and carry on.

On Tuesday the Food and Drug Administration announced its approval of a device for preventing migraines. Called Cefaly, it’s the first transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) device designed for use prior to the crushing pain of such headaches.

Migraines are defined as throbbing or pulsing pain in one area of the head, and symptoms can include nausea and sensitivity to light and sound. A migraine lasts four to 72 hours if untreated.

“Cefaly provides an alternative to medication for migraine prevention,” Christy Foreman, director of the Office of Device Evaluation at the FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health, said in a statement. “This may help patients who cannot tolerate current migraine medications for preventing migraines or treating attacks.”

The small, battery-operated, portable device resembles a plastic headband. It’s placed on top of the ears and worn across the forehead, delivering electrical impulses to stimulate the trigeminal nerve. This nerve is believed to contribute to migraine pain. According to the FDA, the device should be worn once daily for about 20 minutes and is intended for those 18 and older.

The FDA approved the device after a small clinical study in Belgium involving 67 people. Participants experienced at least two migraines per month and hadn’t taken drugs to prevent the headaches for three months before the study.

While Cefaly didn’t prevent migraines completely, it did help participants experience fewer “migraine days” per month. Most common issues were tingling sensations and sleepiness during device use, along with subsequent headaches. The FDA reported no serious side effects.

A patient satisfaction survey asking 2,313 Cefaly wearers in France and Belgium to rate the device found about 53 percent satisfied with Cefaly treatment and willing to purchase the device.

Cefaly is currently priced at €295 on www.cefaly.com.

People with an extremely rare blood type could be at a higher risk for developing memory problems later in life. A new study published in the journal Neurology says people with AB blood type could be up to 82 percent more likely to develop problems with cognition and memory as they age.

Researchers examined data from a study of over 30,000 people aged 45 and up. They identified a cohort of 495 people who developed memory or cognitive impairment over approximately three-and-a-half years. The participants were given four cognitive tests over the course of the study. They were compared to a similar group of 587 adults who did not have any signs of memory problems.

While only 4 percent of the U.S. population has AB blood, 6 percent of the cohort with memory problems had this blood type. Researchers concluded that in this study people with AB blood type were 82 percent more likely to develop thinking and memory problems than people with any of the three other blood types.

Interestingly enough, the researchers also discovered that people with higher levels of factor VIII, a protein which helps clot blood, were almost a quarter more likely to have cognitive problems than those with lower levels. People with blood type AB were generally found to have higher levels of the protein than others.

"Our study looks at blood type and risk of cognitive impairment, but several studies have shown that factors such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes increase the risk of cognitive impairment and dementia," study author Mary Cushman of the University of Vermont said in a release. "Blood type is also related to other vascular conditions like stroke, so the findings highlight the connections between vascular issues and brain health. More research is needed to confirm these results."

As Cushman mentioned, other studies have looked at the link between blood types and increased likelihood of certain diseases. A 2012 study conducted by Harvard University researchers concluded that AB blood types have a 23 percent higher chance of developing coronary heart disease compared to O blood types. And in line with researchers finding that AB blood types have higher levels of factor VIII, a study from 2013 found because of this, those people are at a higher risk for developing dangerous blood clots.

So what if you have AB blood type? Don't panic, experts say. Head of Alzheimer's Research UK, Simon Ridley said the study did not look at the direct link between blood type and dementia. "Current evidence suggests the best ways to keep the brain healthy are a balanced diet, not smoking and regular exercise," Ridley told the BBC.

Study: Smelling farts is good for your health

The next time someone at your office lets out a "silent but deadly" emission, maybe you should thank them. A new study at the University of Exeter suggests that smelling farts could prevent disease and even cancer.

The study, published in the Medicinal Chemistry Communications journal, found that flatulence could be a key factor in treating diseases.

"Although hydrogen sulfide gas is well known as a pungent, foul-smelling gas in rotten eggs and flatulence, it is naturally produced in the body and could in fact be a healthcare hero with significant implications for future therapies for a variety of diseases," Dr. Mark Wood, a professor at the University of Exeter, said in a statement.

While hydrogen sulfide gas is harmful in large doses, smelling it in small amounts could reduce the risk of cancer, strokes, heart attacks, arthritis, and dementia by preserving the body's mitochondria. Dr. Matt Whiteman, a University of Exeter professor who worked on the study, said in a statement that researchers are even replicating the natural gas to reap its health benefits.

USE VINEGAR & BAKING SODA

It’s almost hard to believe: By combining two seemingly mild pantry staples, you can handle most of the tougher messes in your home. But the fact is that, most of the time, baking soda and vinegar are the only one-two punch you need to get your home clean. Seriously! The secret is in how you apply the two, as too much of either can neutralize both. So long as you remember these recipes, though, you can always be ready to clean everyday messes and your home’s grimiest corners.

1. Freshen a Drain (and Shine a Stainless Steel Sink)
Instead of using harsh chemicals that could potentially damage your pipes, unclog and refresh your drain by pouring in a ½ cup of baking soda and 1 cup of vinegar. Always keep the ratio one-part baking soda to two parts vinegar. The mixture will fizz and bubble, like your favorite middle school volcano science project. Once it dies down, flush the drain with very hot water for five minutes, then run the cold water.

Take the opportunity while surface is damp to sprinkle extra baking soda in the basin of the sink, and give it a good scrub using a scrub brush or dish sponge. The slightly abrasive qualities of the baking soda should help to remove stuck-on gunk and stains.

2. Solve Hard Water Stains
Give tough hard water stains the boot! Place a cloth or paper towel soaked with vinegar over the affected area and let it sit for a few hours. Remove the cloth, scrub with a baking soda paste (a mixture of dry baking soda and just enough water to create a paste-like consistency), spritz lightly with vinegar, and wipe clean.

3. Reverse Carpet Stains
With these cleaners up your sleeve—or, rather, sitting in your pantry—you need not cringe when a guest spills a bit of drink on your carpet. Create a paste with baking soda and a small amount of vinegar, then work it into the stained carpet fibers with your fingers. Allow the mixture to sit and dry overnight, then vacuum up any remnants. Before trying out this tip on a large area, test it on small, out-of-sight patch of carpet first. If everything looks kosher, treat the rest of your stain.

4. Kill Mildew in a Load of Laundry
Baking soda and vinegar’s cleaning and deodorizing properties work wonders in the wash. Add ½ cup of baking soda in with your detergent to help boost its cleaning power. One cup of vinegar poured in during the rinse cycle will help kill bacteria in the load and doubles as a chemical-free fabric softener.

5. Whiten and Brighten Grout
The abrasive qualities of baking soda add muscle to your own scrubbing efforts. Nowhere could use that extra “oomph” more than your stained grout! Make a paste using baking soda and water, spritz lightly with vinegar, and immediately scrub and rinse the area. Full disclosure: You’ll probably still need a little bit of muscle—just think of these power players as your line of backup.

6. Get Rid of Gunk on Pots and Pans
Dried-on food particles, baked-on grime, and burnt dinner remains all can add time on to your dinner cleanup—but they’re no match for this power couple. Sprinkle baking soda on damp (not wet) pots and pans, spritz with vinegar, then go to town scrubbing with a nylon dish sponge. The slight foaming action will break up some of the tougher stuck-on food, leaving you with a little extra energy after dish duty

YAHOO 5-3-13 WHITE HOUSE IS COVERING UP UFO TRUTH

YAHOO NEWS 5-3-13 WHITE HOUSE IS COVERING UP THE TRUTH ABOUT UFOS 2:54

Alien's & UFO's Leviticus 26:22 "I will also send wild beasts among you, which shall ROB YOU OF YOUR CHILDREN, and DESTROY YOUR CATTLE



Even as most Americans wonder what planet politicians are from, is it possible that the government is squelching evidence of extraterrestrials visiting Earth? One former presidential hopeful says yes – and that the conspiracy goes all the way to the top.

Former Sen. Mike Gravel (D-Alaska) says the White House has helped keep the truth about the “extraterrestrial influence that is investigating our planet” from the public.

“It goes right to the White House, and of course, once the White House takes a position, ‘well there's nothing going on’...it just goes down the chain of command, everyone stands toe,” Gravel tells Top Line.

Gravel is one of six former congress representatives who were paid $20,000 by the UFO advocacy group Paradigm Research to participate in a Congressional-style Citizen Hearing on Disclosure in Washington this week, where witness after witness has presented first-hand accounts of UFO sightings and extraterrestrial visits.

Gravel says the strongest accounts of alien encounters are from former military officers, such as retired Air Force Capt. Robert Salas, who testified that UFOs temporarily disabled nuclear weapons on his watch.

“The smoking gun of the whole issue, which is when they saw hovering space craft in Wyoming and South Dakota over the ICBM missile silos that the missiles couldn't work,” Gravel says.

Gravel says the media has aided what he sees as a government cover-up by not taking reports of ET encounters seriously.

“What we're faced with here is, in areas of the media, and the government too, an effort to marginalize and ridicule people who have specific knowledge,” he says.

When asked about the fact that he was compensated for his participation in the hearing, Gravel says it did not influence him to agree with the testimony.

“This is an opportunity which I've taken to focus on this issue for an entire week and the preparation I made in coming to it, for my enrichment that's very important,” Gravel says.

For a ride into the outer limits of human knowledge on the possibility of alien life, and to hear how Gravel thinks the world should treat potential alien visitors, come along for this expedition of Top Line.

ABC's Eric Wray, Betsy Klein, Melissa Young, and Bob Bramson contributed to this episode.

AWESOME WEBSITE ABOUT UFO TRUTH 2:54

The aliens have BEEN on Earth for many years, [and] made treaties and agreements with our governments; there are millions of them in secret underground complexes such as DULCE, New Mexico, which are responsible for the abduction of American children and citizens and the cattle mutilations documented in books and on TV, such as the recent special 'Intruders'. Civil War Is About To Begin In The United States

Bill Holden, who also served as loadmaster for Air Force One, traveled with Kennedy to Europe in the summer of 1963. He said a UFO conference in Bonn, Germany, prompted a discussion of the subject aboard the President's plane one morning. Holden said he turned to Kennedy and asked, "What do you think about UFOs, Mr. President?" He said Kennedy became quite serious and thought for a moment before replying, "I'd like to tell the public about the alien situation, but my hands are tied." President John F. Kennedy & UFO's Was JFK silenced for knowing too much?

During the United States initial space exploration and the Moon landings every launch was accompanied by alien craft. On November 20, 1990, Los Angeles TV Channel 2 announced that a separate, red, glowing round-shaped object accompanied the space shuttle Atlantis on its latest classified military mission. That was the first public admission. (Behold A Pale Horse, William Cooper, pg. 220)

One former employee of NASA, the American space agency, told the research team that radio hams heard Apollo crew members Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin agog with amazement when they saw the aliens. "These babies are huge, sir, enormous! Oh my God!" Armstrong reported to mission control. "There are other spacecraft out there, lined up on the crater's edge. They're on the moon, watching us! "The encounter was confirmed to the researchers by Maurice Chatelain, a former head of communications at NASA. UFO Sightings by Astronauts

NSA admits it has over 239 top secret documents which relate to 'UFOs'. Nazi History

February 22, 1944 Franklin D. Roosevelt writes a DOUBLE TOP SECRET memo on White House stationary for "The special committee on non-terrestrial science and technology." Both the title and the content clearly allude to extraterrestrial life, the former using the word "non-terrestrial" and the latter talks about "coming to grips with the reality that our planet is not the only one harboring intelligent life the universe." The Majestic Documents

"In July 1952, a panicked government watched helplessly as a squadron of 'flying saucers' flew over Washington, D.C., and buzzed the White House, the Capitol Building, and the Pentagon. It took all the imagination and intimidation the government could muster to force that incident out of the memory of the public. "Thousands of sightings occurred during the Korean war and several more saucers were retrieved by the Air Force. Some were stored at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, some were stored at Air Force bases near the locations of the crash site. "One saucer was so enormous and the logistic problems in transportation so enormous that it was buried at the crash site and remains there today. Crash Go The Chariots

Cancer-Proof Your Life

By Denise Foley, Prevention
We're all grown-ups here—nightmares aren't a big problem anymore. We're calm, we're cool, we're mostly collected...until it comes to the C-word. For adults, cancer is the thing that goes bump in the night; that bump gets louder when family or friends are diagnosed. Whether your risk is monumental or blessedly average, we know you want to protect yourself. So we've combed through research, interrogated experts, and found cutting-edge strategies to help keep you safe.

Worship a wee bit of sun.
People who get the most vitamin D, which lies dormant in skin until ultraviolet rays activate it, may protect themselves from a variety of cancers, including non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, breast, and colon. Ironically, it even improves survival rates of melanoma, the most serious skin cancer. But 10 to 15 minutes a few days a week is all it takes to benefit. (Or you could try a supplement—aim for 400 IU a day.) If you're out any longer than that, slather on the sunscreen.

Eat an orange every day.
It just may zap a strain of the H. pylori bacteria that causes peptic ulcers and can lead to stomach cancer. Researchers in San Francisco found that infected people with high levels of vitamin C in their blood were less likely to test positive for the cancer-causing strain.

Listen to Katie Couric.
Though colonoscopies are about as popular as root canals, if you're 50 or older, get one. Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States. Don't think you're off the hook because you got a digital fecal occult blood test at your last checkup: Research by the Veterans Affairs Cooperative Study last year found that the test missed 95% of the cases. (Schedule your first colonoscopy before your 50th if you have a family history of colon cancer.)

Steam a little green.
Piles of studies have shown that piles of broccoli help stave off ovarian, stomach, lung, bladder, and colorectal cancers. And steaming it for 3 to 4 minutes enhances the power of the cancer-fighting compound sulforaphane, which has been shown to halt the growth of breast cancer cells. (Sorry, microwaving doesn't do the trick; it strips out most antioxidants.) Get more protection by sprinkling a handful of selenium-rich sunflower seeds, nuts, or mushrooms on your greens. Researchers are discovering that sulforaphane is about 13 times more potent when combined with the mineral selenium.

Pick a doc with a past.
Experience—lots of it—is critical when it comes to accurately reading mammograms. A study from the University of California, San Francisco, found that doctors with at least 25 years' experience were more accurate at interpreting images and less likely to give false positives. Ask about your radiologist's track record. If she is freshly minted or doesn't check a high volume of mammograms, get a second read from someone with more mileage.

Drink joltless java.
Downing 2 or more cups of decaf a day may lower the incidence of rectal cancer by 52%, finds a study from two large and long-term research projects—the Nurses' Health Study and the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study from Harvard University. One theory is that coffee increases bowel movements, which helps to reduce the risk. Why decaf reigns supreme, however, remains a mystery.

Drop 10 pounds.
Being overweight or obese accounts for 20% of all cancer deaths among women and 14% among men, notes the American Cancer Society. (You're overweight if your body mass index is between 25 and 29.9; you're obese if it's 30 or more.) Plus, losing excess pounds reduces the body's production of female hormones, which may protect against breast, endometrial, and ovarian cancers. Even if you're not technically overweight, gaining just 10 pounds after the age of 30 increases your risk of developing breast, pancreatic, and cervical, among other cancers.

Make like a monkey.
Or a bunny. Women who ate four to six antioxidant-laden bananas a week cut their risk of kidney cancer by 54%, compared with those who didn't eat them at all, found an analysis of 61,000 women at the Karolinska Institutet in Sweden. Gnawing on root vegetables such as carrots did the same.

Get naked with a friend.
You'll need help examining every inch of your body—including your back, scalp, and other hard-to-see places—for possible changes in the size or color of moles, blemishes, and freckles. These marks could spell skin cancer. Women, take special note of your legs: Melanoma mainly occurs there. For the guys, the trunk, head, and neck are the most diagnosed spots. While you're at it, check your fingernails and toenails, too. Gray-black discoloration or a distorted or elevated nail may indicate the disease. And whether you see changes or not, after age 40, everyone should see a dermatologist yearly.

See into the future.
Go to Yourdiseaserisk.harvard.edu to assess your chance of developing 12 types of cancer, including ovarian, breast, and colon. After the interactive tool estimates your risk, you'll get personalized tips for prevention.

Pay attention to pain.
If you're experiencing a bloated belly, pelvic pain, and an urgent need to urinate, see your doc. These symptoms may signal ovarian cancer, particularly if they're severe and frequent. Women and physicians often ignore these symptoms, and that's the very reason that this disease can be deadly. When caught early, before cancer has spread outside the ovary, the relative 5-year survival rate for ovarian cancer is a jaw-dropping 90 to 95%.

Get calcium daily.
Milk's main claim to fame may also help protect your colon. Those who took calcium faithfully for 4 years had a 36% reduction in the development of new precancerous colon polyps 5 years after the study had ended, revealed Dartmouth Medical School researchers. (They tracked 822 people who took either 1,200 mg of calcium every day or a placebo.) Though the study was not on milk itself, you can get the same amount of calcium in three 8-ounce glasses of fat-free milk, along with an 8-ounce serving of yogurt or a 2- to 3-ounce serving of low-fat cheese daily.

Sweat 30 minutes a day.
One of the best anticancer potions is a half hour of motion at least 5 days a week. Any kind of physical activity modulates levels of androgens and estrogen, two things that can protect women against estrogen-driven cancers such as ovarian and endometrial, as well as some types of breast cancer. The latest proof comes by way of a recent Canadian study that found that women who get regular, moderate exercise may lower their risk of ovarian cancer by as much as 30%. Bonus: All that moving might speed everything through your colon, which may help stave off colon cancer.

Stamp out smoking—all around you.
Lung cancer is well known as one of the main hazards of smoking. But everything the smoke passes on its way to the lungs can also turn cancerous: mouth, larynx, and esophagus. The fun doesn't stop there. Smokers are encouraging stomach, liver, prostate, colorectal, cervical, and breast cancers as well. The good news: If you give up the cigs today, within 15 years, your lung cancer risk will drop to almost presmoking lows. Share that news with the people who puff around you, because exposure to someone else's smoke can cause lung cancer, and it may boost your chances of cervical cancer by 40%.

Step away from the white bread.
If you eat a lot of things with a high glycemic load—a measurement of how quickly food raises your blood sugar—you may run a higher risk of colorectal cancer than women who eat low-glycemic-load foods, finds a Harvard Medical School study involving 38,000 women. The problem eats are mostly white: white bread, pasta, potatoes, and sugary pastries. The low-glycemic-load stuff comes with fiber.

Have your genes screened.
Do you have a strong family history of any kind of cancer or multiple cancers? Talk with your doctor about genetic counseling. For instance, nearly everyone born with familial adenomatous polyposis (the genetic predisposition to colon cancer) develops the disease by age 40 if preventive surgery isn't done. Knowing this early can aid in prevention and early detection.

Request a better breast scan.
If you're at high risk of breast cancer—you have the BRCA1 or BRCA2 genetic mutation, for example—ask your doctor to pair your routine mammogram with an MRI. A recent study found that together, the two picked up 94% of tumors; mammography alone detected just 40% and MRI, 77%.

Grill smarter.
Cooking your food over an open flame is a great way to cut calories. Unfortunately, it can also raise your cancer risk: The grill's high temps can trigger substances in muscle proteins to form cancer-causing compounds called hetero-cyclic amines, or HCAs. But avoiding this potential hazard is easy; simply keep gas jets low or wait until the charcoal turns into glowing embers before you start cooking. Protect yourself even more by lacing your burgers with rosemary (and perhaps other antioxidant-rich herbs such as basil, oregano, or thyme). This helps reduce the amount of some HCAs in meat, a Kansas State University study found. Also helpful: Microwaving meat ahead of time helps disable HCA formation and cuts down on grilling time.

Keep your house clean.
Yet another reason to love your Swiffer: Active postmenopausal women who got most of their exercise from housework cut their risk of breast cancer by 30%, Canadian researchers say.

Let garlic lie.
Thanks to this bulbed wonder, you can ward off vampires and stave off cancer. To preserve the potential cancer-fighting power of garlic, chop it up and let it sit a bit. Research suggests that heating garlic can block 90% of the activity of alliinase, the enzyme that helps to form a cancer-fighting compound. Alliinase is activated when the cloves are crushed or cut, but if cut garlic cools its heels for 5 to 10 minutes before heating, enough compounds are formed to survive cooking.

Check for radon.
Exposure to this odorless, radioactive gas that's produced by the natural decay of uranium is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States, according to the EPA. Test your home to see if you're safe. The National Safety Council's National Radon Hotline (800-767-7236) offers low-cost test kits; they're also available at hardware stores.

Play hot tomato.
Red fruits (watermelon, tomato, pink grapefruit) are loaded with lycopene, a substance that has been proven time and time again to be a potent cancer fighter. It seems that heating said fruits makes the lycopene easier for the body to use, which explains why men who eat a lot of ketchup, pizza (it's in the sauce), and spaghetti (ditto) are far less likely to get prostate cancer.

Ditch the wieners.
You can smother 'em in all the ketchup you want, but you can't negate a hot dog's, well, negatives. A new study of 190,545 people finds that eating a wiener daily may boost your risk of pancreatic cancer, which is nearly always fatal, by 67%. Same goes for sausage and other processed meats.

The Perfect Cancer- fighting Salad
Quick. Can you spot the cancer fighters at the salad bar? Build yourself some powerful protection with these ingredients.

Start with leafy greens.
They contain a hefty amount of the B vitamin folate, which has been shown to reduce one's chances of getting colorectal, ovarian, and breast cancers. In the latest study, researchers at Vanderbilt University found that women who ate the most dark greens were among the least likely to get breast cancer. Apparently, folate can halt changes in DNA that trigger runaway cell growth, the main characteristic of cancer.

Add shredded carrot.
In a study from Brigham and Women?s Hospital in Boston, women who ate just five servings of four raw carrot sticks a week had a 54% decrease in their risk of getting ovarian cancer, compared with women who ate them less than once a month. Carrots may also reduce your risk of kidney cancer.

Serve yourself some tomatoes.
If you don't feel like turning up the heat on your tomatoes, you can still get some of their cancer-shielding benefits. German research on 165 colonoscopy patients found that those who had the lowest blood level of lycopene, one of the chemicals that give tomatoes their color, had the highest rate of colorectal adenomas, a precursor to colo-rectal cancer. Toss a few into your guy's salad: They also reduce the risk of prostate cancer.

Heap on beans.
Women who ate beans at least twice a week were 24% less likely to develop breast cancer than those who ate them less often, report Harvard School of Public Health researchers, who analyzed data from 90,630 people. Legumes may lessen risk of breast cancer, thanks to their ability to suppress the production of enzymes that encourage tumor growth.

Add a little fish.
Want to add something hardy to your lunchtime salad? Go wild with salmon. When B6-rich foods (like salmon) are eaten with folate-filled foods (dark leafy greens), they can help reduce the recurrence of colorectal adenomas, a precursor to colorectal cancer, by 39%, a University of Arizona study found. Salmon may also help shield regular eaters from skin cancer, British research found.

Splash on some vinaigrette.
Mixing your favorite vinegar with olive oil can also help prevent breast cancer. Scientists from Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine found that oleic acid in olive oil dramatically cuts the levels of the cancer gene Her-2/neu, associated with highly aggressive breast tumors with poor prognosis.

Garnish with citrus peel.
They're like eating sunscreen—but they taste better. Limonene—a compound that gives oranges, lemons, and limes their scent—is linked to a 34% reduction in skin cancer, finds a University of Arizona study of 400 people.

REVERSING DIABETES - THE DOCTOR WON'T TELL YOU ABOUT


WWW.REVERSING DIABETES.ORG



MILK IS REALLY VERY BAD FOR YOU




RONALD REAGAN AND JIMMY CARTER SAW UFOS

RONALD REAGAN WAS A MOVIE STAR IN THE 50'S & 60'S BEFORE HE WAS PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES


RONALD REAGAN COLOR WESTERN - TENNESEE'S PARTNER 118 MIN. 1955


PRESIDENT RONALD REAGAN HAD TWO UFO SIGHTINGS.

Reagan’s first UFO sighting was made public by Steve Allen on his WNEW-AM radio show in New York. Allen said that a well-known personality in the entertainment area had secretly revealed to him a UFO story that happened many years earlier. As the story had already been spread around the rumor mills, he had no doubt that the Steve Allan who was the host, was referring to Ronald Reagan and his wife Nancy. What was all the excitement about? Well, Ronald Reagan and Nancy were suppose to attend a casual dinner party with friends in Hollywood. All the guests had arrived except the Reagan’s. They finally did arrive thirty minutes late and very disturbed by something. Ronald Reagan and Nancy nervously explained to the guest, “that they had seen a UFO coming down the coast.”
Lucille Ball who was at the event and overheard the Reagan’s explanation wrote a book called, “Lucy in the Afternoon.” In the book she describes the event and says, “After he was elected president, I kept thinking about that event, and wondered if he still would have won if he told everyone that he saw a flying saucer.”

The second UFO sighting that Ronald Reagan was eyewitness to happened in 1974, while he was still Governor. Just one week after witnessing the sighting, he told the story to Norman C. Miller who was the Washington Bureau chief for the Wall Street Journal, later was the editor of the Los Angeles Times. Reagan stated to him: “I was in a plane last week when I looked out the window and saw this white light. It was zigzagging around. I went up to the pilot and said, ‘Have you seen anything like that before?’ He was shocked and said, ‘Nope.” And I said to him, ‘Let’s follow it!’ We followed it for several minutes. It was a bright white light. We followed it to Bakersfield, and all of a sudden to our utter amazement, it went straight up into the heavens. When we got off the plane, I told Nancy all about it”

The pilot of Reagan’s plane at the time was Bill Paynter, and he backed up Reagan’s version of the UFO sighting. He stated: “I was the pilot of the plane when we saw the UFO. Also, on board were Governor Reagan and a couple of his security people. We were flying a Cessna Citation. It was maybe nine or ten o’clock at night. We were near Bakersfield when Governor Reagan and the others called my attention to a big light flying a bit behind the plane. It appeared to be several hundred yards away. It was a fairly steady light until it began to accelerate, then it appeared to elongate. The light took off. It went up at a 45-degree angle, at a high rate of speed. Everyone on the plane was surprised. Governor Reagan expressed amazement. I told the others I didn’t know what it was. The UFO went from a normal cruise speed to a fantastic speed instantly. If you give an airplane power, it will accelerate, but not like a hotrod, and that is what this was like. We didn’t file a report on the object because for a long time they considered you a nut if you saw a UFO.”

Paynter said that it didn’t end there. He said that he and Reagan talked about their UFO sighting every once in a while, years after the sighting occurred.

At President Ronald Reagan’s speech read before the United Nations, he stated this: “Perhaps we need some outside universal threat, to make us recognize this common bound. I occasionally think about how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish, if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world. Any yet I ask you, is not an alien force already among us?”


JANUARY 6, 1969 PRESIDENT JIMMY CARTER
Carter’s UFO sighting began shortly after dark on a windless night. Jimmy Carter was standing outside the Lion’s Club in Leary, Georgia, waiting for a meeting to start. Suddenly, he and ten or more witnesses, sighted a red and green orb radiating in the western sky. Carter described an object that "it seemed to move towards us from a distance, stop, move partially away, return, then depart. Bluish at first; then reddish - luminous - not solid."

"At times," reported Carter, "it was as bright as the moon, and about as big as the moon - maybe a bit smaller. The object was luminous; not solid."

In an interview with the Atlanta Constitution, Carter described the moving nature of the event. He described the sighting as a "very remarkable sight." This is an important event, because many of the skeptical investigations done on the Carter sighting, have tried to paint the event as a ho-hum occurrence. None of the descriptions Carter has made of the event have ever described it as ho-hum.

Jimmy Carter’s mother Lillian also confirmed that Carter had been very impressed by what he had seen. "The UFO made a huge impression on Jimmy," she stated. "He told me about the sighting many times. He’s always been a down-to-earth no-nonsense boy, and the sighting by him, as far as I am concerned, is as firm as money in the bank."

Carter had, in fact, described the UFO sighting many times in the years since it occurred. In every instance, including the latest known telling of the story at Emory University in 1997, Carter has never backed off on the spectacular nature of the event. He has also never conceded that was he saw was some misidentification of a natural phenomena.

Carter estimated that the object was three hundred to one thousand yards away. He estimated that the event had lasted 10 minutes. Then the object disappeared. Carter was so impressed by what he had seen, he recorded his impressions of the event on a tape recorder at the time.

WILL YOU LIVE TO BE 100? YAHOO Wednesday, September 14, 2011

No matter where you live or who you are, living a long and happy life seems to be the most universal wish across the human race, but how do you increase your chances of seeing a complete century in your lifetime. Here are 10 unexpected signs, all backed by science, that you are likely to reach your triple digit birthday.

Your Mom Had You Young
If she was under age 25, you’re twice as likely to live to 100 as someone born to an older mom, according to University of Chicago scientists. They suspect that younger moms’ best eggs go first to fertilization, thus healthier offspring.

What Your Mother’s Health Means For You

You've Been a College Freshman
A recent Harvard Medical School study found that people with more than 12 years of formal education (even if it’s only 1 year of college) live 18 months longer than those with fewer years of schooling. Why? The more education you have, the less likely you are to smoke. In fact, only about 10% of adults with an undergraduate degree smoke, compared with 35% of those with a high school education or less, according to the CDC.

The Secret to Keeping Your Brain Sharp

You're the Life of the Party
Outgoing people are 50% less likely to develop dementia, according to a recent study of more than 500 men and women age 78 and older from the Karolinska Institutet in Sweden. Participants also described themselves as not easily stressed. Researchers speculate that their more resilient brains may be due to lower levels of cortisol--studies show that oversecretion of this "stress hormone" can inhibit brain cells' communication.

You Have Strong Legs
Lower-body strength translates into good balance, flexibility, and endurance. As you get older, those attributes are key to reducing your risk of falls and injuries—particularly hip fractures, which often quickly lead to declining health. Up to 20% of hip-fracture patients die within 1 year because of complications from the trauma. "Having weak thigh muscles is the number one predictor of frailty in old age," says Robert Butler, MD, president of the International Longevity Center—USA in New York City.

Get Gorgeous Legs

You're a Tea Lover
Both green and black teas contain a concentrated dose of catechins, substances that help blood vessels relax and protect your heart. In a study of more than 40,500 Japanese men and women, those who drank 5 or more cups of green tea every day had the lowest risk of dying from heart disease and stroke. Other studies involving black tea showed similar results.

You Embrace Techie Trends
Learn to Twitter or Skype to help keep brain cells young and healthy, says Sherri Snelling, senior director for Evercare (part of United-Healthcare), a group that sponsors an annual poll of US centenarians. Many of the oldest Americans send e-mails, Google lost friends, and even date online. Researchers say using the latest technology helps keep us not only mentally spry but socially engaged: "Stay connected to friends, family, and current events, and you feel vital and relevant," says Snelling.

You Were a Healthy-Weight Teen
A study in the Journal of Pediatrics that followed 137 African Americans from birth to age 28 found that being overweight at age 14 increases your risk of developing type 2 diabetes in adulthood. Adults with diabetes are two to four times more likely to develop heart disease than those without the condition, according to the American Heart Association.

You Had a Baby Later in Life
If you got pregnant naturally after age 44, you're about 15% less likely to die during any year after age 50 than your friends who had their babies before age 40, reports a recent University of Utah study. "If your ovaries are healthy and you are capable of having children at that age, that's a marker that you have genes operating that will help you live longer," says lead researcher Ken R. Smith, PhD, professor of human development at the university.

You Really Like Your Friends
"Good interpersonal relationships act as a buffer against stress," says Micah Sadigh, PhD, an associate professor of psychology at Cedar Crest College. Knowing you have people who support you keeps you healthy, mentally and physically: Chronic stress weakens the immune system and ages cells faster, ultimately shortening life span by 4 to 8 years, according to one study. Not just any person will do, however. "You need friends you can talk to without being judged or criticized," says Sadigh.

You Eat Purple Food
Concord grapes, blueberries, red wine: They all get that deep, rich color from polyphenols—compounds that reduce heart disease risk and may also protect against Alzheimer's disease, according to research. Polyphenols help keep blood vessels and arteries flexible and healthy. "What's good for your coronary arteries is also good for your brain's blood vessels," says Robert Krikorian, PhD, director of the Cognitive Disorders Center at the University of Cincinnati. Preliminary animal studies suggest that adding dark grapes to your diet may improve brain function. What's more, in a recent human study, researchers found that eating 1 or more cups of blueberries every day may improve communication between brain cells, enhancing your memory.

If you want to know whether your marriage will survive, look at your spouse's yearbook photos.


Psychologists have found that how much people smile in old photographs can predict their later success in marriage.


In one test, the researchers looked at people's college yearbook photos, and rated their smile intensity from 1 to 10. None of the people who fell within the top 10 percent of smile strength had divorced, while within the bottom 10 percent of smilers, almost one in four had had a marriage that ended, the researchers say. (Scoring was based on the stretch in two muscles: one that pulls up on the mouth, and one that creates wrinkles around the eyes.)


In a second trial, the research team asked people over age 65 to provide photos from their childhood (the average age in the pictures was 10 years old). The researchers scored each person's smile, and found that only 11 percent of the biggest smilers had been divorced, while 31 percent of the frowners had experienced a broken marriage.


Overall, the results indicate that people who frown in photos are five times more likely to get a divorce than people who smile.


While the connection is striking, the researchers stress that they can't conclude anything about the cause of the correlation.


"Maybe smiling represents a positive disposition towards life," said study leader Matthew Hertenstein, a psychologist at DePauw University in Indiana. "Or maybe smiling people attract other happier people, and the combination may lead to a greater likelihood of a long-lasting marriage. We don't really know for sure what's causing it."


Hertenstein said he has considered other explanations, such as the possibility that people who smile more often tend to attract more friends, and a larger support network makes it easier to keep a marriage healthy. Or it could be that people who smile when a photographer tells them to are more likely to have obedient personalities, which could make marriage easier.


The results of the study fit into a larger pattern of research that has found many personality characteristics can be determined from very thin slices of behavior. Basically, we often reveal ourselves in the most subtle, simple ways.


And smiling in photographs has been shown to be correlated with a number of traits, including a generally happier disposition.


"I think [our results] go along with a lot of the literature that's been coming out over the last five to 10 years, which shows that positive emotionality is incredibly important in our lives," Hertenstein told LiveScience. "There are many, many beneficial outcomes to a positive disposition."


The findings are also notable because they found a connection between photos taken when people were young and marriage outcomes that sometimes occurred much later.


"It feeds into this idea that what's occurring earlier in our lives in terms of our present situation and our mental state can predict things that occur decades later," Hertenstein said. "Showing the continuity in who we are is really important."


The study is detailed in the April 5 issue of the journal Motivation and Emotion.

SPORTS NEWS ARTICLE FROM YAHOO OCT, 28, 2009

We've obtained a copy of Tim Donaghy's book, Blowing the Whistle, which purports to expose the NBA's "culture of fraud" and which Random House was set to publish next month — until, a source says, the league threatened to sue.

The book is the former referee's account of his time in the NBA and the events that led to his conviction, in 2007, on charges that he relayed inside information on NBA games — including several that he was working — to a professional gambler. Blowing the Whistle falls somewhere between a confessional and an indictment, both of his former colleagues and their employer. In the book, Donaghy alleges, among other things, that referee Dick Bavetta spoke unabashedly about his role as the NBA's "go-to guy." Donaghy cites Game 6 of the notorious 2002 Western Conference finals, between the Lakers and the Kings — a game that NBA conspiracy theorists still talk about as if it were basketball's grassy knoll. Donaghy, who was not assigned to the game, reports that Bavetta "openly talked about the fact that the league wanted a Game 7." We'll have excerpts later today.

Donaghy is currently in a federal detention center near Tampa, a week away from his release. About 10 months ago, he shopped the book to Triumph Books, an imprint of Random House, according to a source close to Donaghy. Triumph, the source says, "put forth a huge effort to verify every statement in that book." (Triumph's editorial director, Tom Bast, declined to comment.) Two weeks ago, Blowing the Whistle was ready for printing; 60 Minutes had plans to interview Donaghy in conjunction with the book's publication. Then the NBA came calling. "They came after Random House and threatened a lawsuit," the source says, "and Random House just rolled and decided to not go with it. It's really that simple." To his knowledge, no one at the NBA had actually read the book.

"Which is why," he goes on, "Triumph was so intrigued as to why the parent company decided to not go with it. Because there was no logical reasoning other than an open threat. It just doesn't make sense. If they had come down and said, 'There are some specific things that are flat-out lies or they're wrong and we think there are fabrications or something,' then there'd be some basis to say, 'OK, we need to back up and double-check this.' But this was just an open comment. And so we don't know what the specific basis of that potential suit might've been."

The book no longer has an Amazon page; it's cached here. Meanwhile, Donaghy is looking for another publisher. He may even self-publish. "It's dead right now," the source says. "The whole thing has fallen flat on its face. ... Obviously, the NBA has got some people running scared."

As promised earlier, here are a handful of excerpts from David Stern's favorite book, Blowing the Whistle, by Tim Donaghy.

On gambling refs:

To have a little fun at the expense of the worst troublemakers, the referees working the game would sometimes make a modest friendly wager amongst themselves: first ref to give one of the bad boys a technical foul wouldn't have to tip the ball boy that night. In the NBA, ball boys set up the referees' locker room and keep it stocked with food and beer for the postgame meal. We usually ran the kid ragged with a variety of personal requests and then slipped him a $20 bill. Technically, the winner of the bet won twice — he didn't have to pay the kid and he got to call a T on Mr. Foul-Mouthed Big-Shot Du Jour.

After the opening tip, it was hilarious as the three of us immediately focused our full attention on the intended victim, waiting for something, anything, to justify a technical foul. If the guy so much as looked at one of us and mumbled, we rang him up. Later in the referees' locker room, we would down a couple of brews, eat some chicken wings, and laugh like hell.

We had another variation of this gag simply referred to as the "first foul of the game" bet. While still in the locker room before tip-off, we would make a wager on which of us would call the game's first foul. That referee would either have to pay the ball boy or pick up the dinner tab for the other two referees. Sometimes, the ante would be $50 a guy. Like the technical foul bet, it was hilarious — only this time we were testing each other's nerves to see who had the guts to hold out the longest before calling a personal foul. There were occasions when we would hold back for two or three minutes — an eternity in an NBA game — before blowing the whistle. It didn't matter if bodies were flying all over the place; no fouls were called because no one wanted to lose the bet.

We played this little game during the regular season and summer league. After a game, all three refs would gather around the VCR and watch a replay of the game. Early in the contest, the announcers would say, "Holy cow! They're really letting them play tonight!" If they only knew...

During one particular summer game, Duke Callahan, Mark Wunderlich, and I made it to the three-minute mark in the first quarter without calling a foul. We were running up and down the court, laughing our asses off as the players got hammered with no whistles. The players were exhausted from the nonstop running when Callahan finally called the first foul because Mikki Moore of the New Jersey Nets literally tackled an opposing player right in front of him. Too bad for Callahan — he lost the bet.

I became so good at this game that if an obvious foul was committed right in front of me, I would call a travel or a three-second violation instead. Those violations are not personal fouls, so I was still in the running to win the bet. The players would look at me with disbelief on their faces as if to say, "What the hell was that?"

On star treatment:





Relationships between NBA players and referees were generally all over the board — love, hate, and everything in-between. Some players, even very good ones, were targeted by referees and the league because they were too talented for their own good. Raja Bell, formerly of the Phoenix Suns and now a member of the Charlotte Bobcats, was one of those players. A defensive specialist throughout his career, Bell had a reputation for being a "star stopper." His defensive skills were so razor sharp that he could shut down a superstar, or at least make him work for his points. Kobe Bryant was often frustrated by Bell's tenacity on defense. Let's face it, no one completely shuts down a player of Kobe's caliber, but Bell could frustrate Kobe, take him out of his game, and interrupt his rhythm.

You would think that the NBA would love a guy who plays such great defense. Think again! Star stoppers hurt the promotion of marquee players. Fans don't pay high prices to see players like Raja Bell — they pay to see superstars like Kobe Bryant score 40 points. Basketball purists like to see good defense, but the NBA wants the big names to score big points.

If a player of Kobe's stature collides with the likes of Raja Bell, the call will almost always go for Kobe and against Bell. As part of our ongoing training and game preparation, NBA referees regularly receive game-action video tape from the league office. Over the years, I have reviewed many recorded hours of video involving Raja Bell. The footage I analyzed usually illustrated fouls being called against Bell, rarely for him. The message was subtle but clear — call fouls against the star stopper because he's hurting the game.

If Kobe Bryant had two fouls in the first or second quarter and went to the bench, one referee would tell the other two, "Kobe's got two fouls. Let's make sure that if we call a foul on him, it's an obvious foul, because otherwise he's gonna go back to the bench. If he is involved in a play where a foul is called, give the foul to another player."

Similarly, when games got physically rough, we would huddle up and agree to tighten the game up. So we started calling fouls on guys who didn't really matter — "ticky-tack" or "touch" fouls where one player just touched another but didn't really impede his progress. Under regular circumstances these wouldn't be fouls, but after a skirmish we wanted to regain control. We would never call these types of fouls on superstars, just on the average players who didn't have star status. It was important to keep the stars on the floor.

Allen Iverson provides a good example of a player who generated strong reaction, both positive and negative, within the corps of NBA referees. For instance, veteran referee Steve Javie hated Allen Iverson and was loathe [sic] to give him a favorable call. If Javie was on the court when Iverson was playing, I would always bet on the other team to win or at least cover the spread. No matter how many times Iverson hit the floor, he rarely saw the foul line. By contrast, referee Joe Crawford had a grandson who idolized Iverson. I once saw Crawford bring the boy out of the stands and onto the floor during warm-ups to meet the superstar. Iverson and Crawford's grandson were standing there, shaking hands, smiling, talking about all kinds of things. If Joe Crawford was on the court, I was pretty sure Iverson's team would win or at least cover the spread.

Madison Square Garden was the place to be for a marquee matchup between the Miami Heat and New York Knicks. I worked the game with Derrick Stafford and Gary Zielinski, knowing that the Knicks were a sure bet to get favorable treatment that night. Derrick Stafford had a close relationship with Knicks coach Isiah Thomas, and he despised Heat coach Pat Riley. I picked the Knicks without batting an eye and settled in for a roller-coaster ride on the court.

During pregame warm-ups, Shaquille O'Neal approached Stafford and asked him to let some air out of the ball.

"Is this the game ball?" O'Neal asked. "It's too hard. C'mon, D, let a little air out of it."

Stafford then summoned one of the ball boys, asked for an air needle, and let some air out of the ball, getting a big wink and a smile from O'Neal.

On makeup calls:

I remember one nightmarish game I worked with Joe Crawford and Phil Robinson. Minnesota and New Orleans were in a tight game going into the last minute, and Crawford told us to make sure that we were 100 percent sure of the call every time we blew the whistle. When play resumed, Minnesota coach Flip Saunders started yelling at us to make a call. Robinson got intimidated and blew the whistle on New Orleans. The only problem was it wasn't the right call. Tim Floyd, the Hornets' coach, went nuts. He stormed the court and kicked the ball into the top row of the stadium. Robinson had to throw him out, and Minnesota won the game.
[...]
Later that week, Ronnie Nunn told me that we could have made something up at the other end against Minnesota to even things out. He even got specific — maybe we should have considered calling a traveling violation on Kevin Garnett. Talk about the politics of the game! Of course the official statement from the league office will always read, "There is no such thing as a makeup call."

On his fellow referees:

Dick Bavetta


Crawford wanted the game over quickly so he could kick back, relax, and have a beer; [Dick Bavetta] wanted it to keep going so he could hear his name on TV. He actually paid an American Airlines employee to watch all the games he worked and write down everything the TV commentators said about him. No matter how late the game was over, he'd wake her up for a full report. He loved the attention.

That very first time Jack and I bet on an NBA game, Dick was on the court. The team we picked lost the game, but it covered the large point spread and that's how we won the money. Because of the matchup that night, I had some notion of who might win the game, but that's not why I was confident enough to pull the trigger and pick the other team. The real reason I picked the losing team was that I was just about certain they would cover the spread, no matter how badly they played. That is where Dick Bavetta comes into the picture.

From my earliest involvement with Bavetta, I learned that he likes to keep games close, and that when a team gets down by double-digit points, he helps the players save face. He accomplishes this act of mercy by quietly, and frequently, blowing the whistle on the team that's having the better night. Team fouls suddenly become one-sided between the contestants, and the score begins to tighten up. That's the way Dick Bavetta referees a game — and everyone in the league knew it.

Fellow referee Danny Crawford attended Michael Jordan's Flight School Camp years ago and later told me that he had long conversations with other referees and NBA players about how Bavetta propped up weak teams. Danny told me that Jordan himself said that everyone in the league knew that Bavetta cheated in games and that the players and coaches just hoped he would be cheating for them on game night. Cheating? That's a very strong word to use in any sentence that includes the name Dick Bavetta. Is the conscious act of helping a team crawl back into a contest "cheating"? The credo of referees from high school to the NBA is "call them like you see them." Of course, that's a lot different than purposely calling more fouls against one team as opposed to another. Did Bavetta have a hidden agenda? Or was he the ultimate company man, making sure the NBA and its fans got a competitive game most times he was on
the court?

Studying under Dick Bavetta for 13 years was like pursuing a graduate degree in advanced game manipulation. He knew how to marshal the tempo and tone of a game better than any referee in the league, by far. He also knew how to take subtle — and not so subtle — cues from the NBA front office and extend a playoff series or, worse yet, change the complexion of that series.

The 2002 Western Conference Finals between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Sacramento Kings presents a stunning example of game and series manipulation at its ugliest. As the teams prepared for Game 6 at the Staples Center, Sacramento had a 3–2 lead in the series. The referees assigned to work Game 6 were Dick Bavetta, Bob Delaney, and Ted Bernhardt. As soon as the referees for the game were chosen, the rest of us knew immediately that there would be a Game 7. A prolonged series was good for the league, good for the networks, and good for the game. Oh, and one more thing: it was great for the big-market, star-studded Los Angeles Lakers.

In the pregame meeting prior to Game 6, the league office sent down word that certain calls — calls that would have benefitted the Lakers — were being missed by the referees. This was the type of not-so-subtle information that I and other referees were left to interpret. After receiving the dispatch, Bavetta openly talked about the fact that the league wanted a Game 7.

"If we give the benefit of the calls to the team that's down in the series, nobody's going to complain. The series will be even at three apiece, and then the better team can win Game 7," Bavetta stated.

As history shows, Sacramento lost Game 6 in a wild come-from-behind thriller that saw the Lakers repeatedly sent to the foul line by the referees. For other NBA referees watching the game on television, it was a shameful performance by Bavetta's crew, one of the most poorly officiated games of all time.

The 2002 series certainly wasn't the first or last time Bavetta weighed in on an important game. He also worked Game 7 of the 2000 Western Conference Finals between the Lakers and the Trail Blazers. The Lakers were down by 13 at the start of the fourth quarter when Bavetta went to work. The Lakers outscored Portland 31–13 in the fourth quarter and went on to win the game and the series. It certainly didn't hurt the Lakers that they got to shoot 37 free throws compared to a paltry 16 for the Trail Blazers.

Two weeks before the 2003–04 season ended, Bavetta and I were assigned to officiate a game in Oakland. That afternoon before the tip-off, we were discussing an upcoming game on our schedule. It was the last regular-season game we were scheduled to work, pitting Denver against San Antonio. Denver had lost a game a few weeks prior because of a mistake made by the referees, a loss that could be the difference between them making or missing the playoffs. Bavetta told me Denver needed the win and that it would look bad for the staff and the league if the Nuggets missed the playoffs by one game. There were still a few games left on the schedule before the end of the season, and the standings could potentially change. But on that day in Oakland, Bavetta looked at me and casually stated, "Denver will win if they need the game. That's why I'm on it."

I was thinking, How is Denver going to win on the road in San Antonio? At the time, the Spurs were arguably the best team in the league. Bavetta answered my question before it was asked.

"Duncan will be on the bench with three fouls within the first five minutes of the game," he calmly stated.

Bavetta went on to inform me that it wasn't the first time the NBA assigned him to a game for a specific purpose. He cited examples, including the 1993 playoff series when he put New Jersey guard Drazen Petrovic on the bench with quick fouls to help Cleveland beat the Nets. He also spoke openly about the 2002 Los Angeles–Sacramento series and called himself the NBA's "go-to guy."

As it turned out, Denver didn't need the win after all; they locked up a spot in the playoffs before they got to San Antonio. In a twist of fate, it was the Spurs that ended up needing the win to have a shot at the division title, and Bavetta generously accommodated. In our pregame meeting, he talked about how important the game was to San Antonio and how meaningless it was to Denver, and that San Antonio was going to get the benefit of the calls that night. Armed with this inside information, I called Jack Concannon before the game and told him to bet the Spurs.

To no surprise, we won big. San Antonio blew Denver out of the building that evening, winning by 26 points. When Jack called me the following morning, he expressed amazement at the way an NBA game could be manipulated. Sobering, yes; amazing, no. That's how the game is played in the National Basketball Association.

In a follow-up email to the referee staff and the league office, Crawford railed about the lack of respect players had for referees and the NBA's failure to back him up. Then, in a direct shot at the league's embracing of referees like Dick Bavetta, he fired a sharp rebuke:

"I also told [Stu Jackson] that the staff is an officiating staff of Dick Bavetta's — schmoozing and sucking people's asses to get ahead. Awful, but it is reality."

Crawford also touched on the fact that he was being excluded from working the playoffs that year:

"Look on the bright side everybody, MORE playoff games for you guys and Dick, maybe you will get to be crew chief in the 7th game of the Finals, which is a travesty in itself you even being in the Finals."

Tommy Nunez


My favorite Tommy Nunez story is from the 2007 playoffs when the San Antonio Spurs were able to get past the Phoenix Suns in the second round. Of course, what many fans didn't know was that Phoenix had someone working against them behind the scenes. Nunez was the group supervisor for that playoff series, and he definitely had a rooting interest.

Nunez loved the Hispanic community in San Antonio and had a lot of friends there. He had been a referee for 30 years and loved being on the road; in fact, he said that the whole reason he had become a group supervisor was to keep getting out of the house. So Nunez wanted to come back to San Antonio for the conference finals. Plus, he, like many other referees, disliked Suns owner Robert Sarver for the way he treated officials. Both of these things came into play when he prepared the referees for the games in the staff meetings. I remember laughing with him and saying, "You would love to keep coming back here." He was pointing out everything that Phoenix was able to get away with and never once told us to look for anything in regard to San Antonio. Nunez should have a championship ring on his finger.

Derrick Stafford and Jess Kersey


Of course, Stafford had some friends in the league, too. I worked a Knicks game in Madison Square Garden with him on February 26, 2007. New York shot an astounding 39 free throws that night to Miami's paltry eight. It seemed like Stafford was working for the Knicks, calling fouls on Miami like crazy. Isiah Thomas was coaching the Knicks, and after New York's four-point victory, a guy from the Knicks came to our locker room looking for Stafford, who was in the shower. He told us that Thomas sent him to retrieve Stafford's home address; apparently, Stafford had asked the coach before the game for some autographed sneakers and jerseys for his kids. Suddenly, it all made sense.

Referee Jess Kersey was another one of Isiah Thomas' guys. They'd talk openly on the phone as if they had known each other since childhood. Thomas even told Kersey that he was pushing to get Ronnie Nunn removed from the supervisor's job so that Kersey and Dick Bavetta could take over. This sort of thing happened all the time, and I kept waiting for a Knicks game when Stafford, Bavetta, and Kersey were working together. It was like knowing the winning lottery numbers before the drawing!

Steve Javie


And then there was the ongoing feud between Javie and 76ers superstar Allen Iverson. The rift was so bad that Philadelphia general manager Billy King often called the league office to complain about Javie's treatment of Iverson during a game.

Iverson was eventually traded to Denver, and in his first game against his former team, he was tossed after two technicals. Afterward, Iverson implied Javie had a grudge against him, saying, "I thought I got fouled on that play, and I said I thought that he was calling the game personal, and he threw me out. His fuse is real short anyway, and I should have known that I couldn't say anything anyway. It's been something personal with me and him since I got in the league. This was just the perfect game for him to try and make me look bad." The league fined Iverson $25,000 for his comments, but most of the league referees thought the punishment was too lenient and were upset he wasn't suspended. As a result, we collectively decided to dispense a little justice of our own, sticking it to Iverson whenever we could.

Shortly after the Javie-Iverson incident, I worked a Jazz-Nuggets contest in Denver on January 6, 2007. During the pregame meeting, my fellow referees Bernie Fryer and Gary Zielinski agreed that we were going to strictly enforce the palming rule against Iverson. Palming the ball was something Iverson loved to do, but if he so much as came close to a palm, we were going to blow the whistle. Obviously, our actions were in direct retaliation for Iverson's rant against Javie. True to form, I immediately excused myself and made an important phone call.

Sticking to our pregame pledge, each of us whistled Iverson for palming in the first quarter — we all wanted in on the fun. The violations seemed to affect Iverson's rhythm and he played terribly that night, shooting 5-for-19 with five turnovers. After getting repeatedly whistled all night long, Iverson approached me in an act of submission.

"How long am I going to be punished for Javie?" he quietly inquired.

"Don't know what you're talking about, Allen," I responded.

Soda, pop, cola, soft drink — whatever you call it, it is one of the worst beverages that you could be drinking for your health. As the debate for whether to put a tax on the sale of soft drinks continues, you should know how they affect your body so that you can make an informed choice on your own.

Soft drinks are hard on your health
Soft drinks contain little to no vitamins or other essential nutrients. However, it is what they do contain that is the problem: caffeine, carbonation, simple sugars — or worse, sugar substitutes — and often food additives such as artificial coloring, flavoring, and preservatives.

A lot of research has found that consumption of soft drinks in high quantity, especially by children, is responsible for many health problems that include tooth decay, nutritional depletion, obesity, type-2 diabetes, and heart disease.

Why the sugar in soft drinks isn’t so sweet
Most soft drinks contain a high amount of simple sugars. The USDA recommendation of sugar consumption for a 2,000-calorie diet is a daily allotment of 10 teaspoons of added sugars. Many soft drinks contain more than this amount!

Just why is too much sugar so unhealthy? Well, to start, let's talk about what happens to you as sugar enters your body. When you drink sodas that are packed with simple sugars, the pancreas is called upon to produce and release insulin, a hormone that empties the sugar in your blood stream into all the tissues and cells for usage. The result of overindulging in simple sugar is raised insulin levels. Raised blood insulin levels beyond the norm can lead to depression of the immune system, which in turn weakens your ability to fight disease.

Something else to consider is that most of the excess sugar ends up being stored as fat in your body, which results in weight gain and elevates risk for heart disease and cancer. One study found that when subjects were given refined sugar, their white blood cell count decreased significantly for several hours afterwards. Another study discovered that rats fed a high-sugar diet had a substantially elevated rate of breast cancer when compared to rats on a regular diet.

The health effects of diet soda
You may come to the conclusion that diet or sugar-free soda is a better choice. However, one study discovered that drinking one or more soft drinks a day — and it didn’t matter whether it was diet or regular — led to a 30% greater chance of weight gain around the belly.

Diet soda is filled with artificial sweeteners such as aspartame, sucralose, or saccharin. These artificial sweeteners pose a threat to your health. Saccharin, for instance, has been found to be carcinogenic, and studies have found that it produced bladder cancer in rats.

Aspartame, commonly known as nutrasweet, is a chemical that stimulates the brain to think the food is sweet. It breaks down into acpartic acid, phenylalanine, and methanol at a temperature of 86 degrees. (Remember, your stomach is somewhere around 98 degrees.) An article put out by the University of Texas found that aspartame has been linked to obesity. The process of stimulating the brain causes more cravings for sweets and leads to carbohydrate loading.

Carbonation depletes calcium
Beverages with bubbles contain phosphoric acid, which can severely deplete the blood calcium levels; calcium is a key component of the bone matrix. With less concentration of calcium over a long time, it can lower deposition rates so that bone mass and density suffer. This means that drinking sodas and carbonated water increases your risk of osteoporosis.

Add in the caffeine usually present in soft drinks, and you are in for even more trouble. Caffeine can deplete the body’s calcium, in addition to stimulating your central nervous system and contributing to stress, a racing mind, and insomnia.

Skip the soda and go for:

• Fresh water
Water is a vital beverage for good health. Each and every cell needs water to perform its essential functions. Since studies show that tap water is filled with contaminants, antibiotics, and a number of other unhealthy substances, consider investing in a quality carbon-based filter for your tap water. To find out more about a high-performance filtration system, click here.

On the go? Try using a stainless steel thermos or glass bottle, filled with filtered water. Enhance the flavor of your water with a refreshing infusion of basil, mint leaves, and a drop of honey.

• Fruit Juice
If you are a juice drinker, try watering down your juice to cut back on the sugar content. Buy a jar of organic 100% juice, especially cranberry, acai, pomegranate, and then dilute three parts filtered water to one part juice. You will get a subtle sweet taste and the benefit of antioxidants. After a couple of weeks, you will no longer miss the sweetness of sugary concentrated juices.

• Tea
Tea gently lifts your energy and has numerous health benefits. Black, green, white, and oolong teas all contain antioxidant polyphenols. In fact, tea ranks as high or higher than many fruits and vegetables on the ORAC scale, the score that measures antioxidant potential of plant-based foods.

Herbal tea does not have the same antioxidant properties, though it is still a great beverage choice with other health benefits, such as inducing calming and relaxing effects.

If tea doesn’t satisfy your sweet tooth, try adding cinnamon or a little honey, which has important health benefits that refined sugar lacks. For a selection of healthy teas that promote total body wellness, click here. Drink up!

I hope you find the ways and means to avoid soft drinks. I invite you to visit often and share your own personal health and longevity tips with me.

May you live long, live strong, and live happy!

How healthy (or not) certain foods are—for us, for the environment—is a hotly debated topic among experts and consumers alike, and there are no easy answers. But when Prevention talked to the people at the forefront of food safety and asked them one simple question—“What foods do you avoid?”—we got some pretty interesting answers. Although these foods don’t necessarily make up a "banned” list, as you head into the holidays—and all the grocery shopping that comes with it—their answers are, well, food for thought:

20 ways to feed your family for $100 a week.

1. Canned Tomatoes

The expert: Fredrick vom Saal, PhD, an endocrinologist at the University of Missouri who studies bisphenol-A

The problem: The resin linings of tin cans contain bisphenol-A, a synthetic estrogen that has been linked to ailments ranging from reproductive problems to heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. Unfortunately, acidity (a prominent characteristic of tomatoes) causes BPA to leach into your food. Studies show that the BPA in most people's body exceeds the amount that suppresses sperm production or causes chromosomal damage to the eggs of animals. "You can get 50 mcg of BPA per liter out of a tomato can, and that's a level that is going to impact people, particularly the young," says vom Saal. "I won't go near canned tomatoes."

The solution: Choose tomatoes in glass bottles (which do not need resin linings), such as the brands Bionaturae and Coluccio. You can also get several types in Tetra Pak boxes, like Trader Joe's and Pomi.

2. Corn-Fed Beef

The expert: Joel Salatin, co-owner of Polyface Farms and author of half a dozen books on sustainable farming

The problem: Cattle evolved to eat grass, not grains. But farmers today feed their animals corn and soybeans, which fatten up the animals faster for slaughter. More money for cattle farmers (and lower prices at the grocery store) means a lot less nutrition for us. A recent comprehensive study conducted by the USDA and researchers from Clemson University found that compared with corn-fed beef, grass-fed beef is higher in beta-carotene, vitamin E, omega-3s, conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), calcium, magnesium, and potassium; lower in inflammatory omega-6s; and lower in saturated fats that have been linked to heart disease. "We need to respect the fact that cows are herbivores, and that does not mean feeding them corn and chicken manure," says Salatin.

The solution: Buy grass-fed beef, which can be found at specialty grocers, farmers' markets, and nationally at Whole Foods. It's usually labeled because it demands a premium, but if you don't see it, ask your butcher.

3. Microwave Popcorn

The expert: Olga Naidenko, PhD, a senior scientist for the Environmental Working Group,

The problem: Chemicals, including perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), in the lining of the bag, are part of a class of compounds that may be linked to infertility in humans, according to a recent study from UCLA. In animal testing, the chemicals cause liver, testicular, and pancreatic cancer. Studies show that microwaving causes the chemicals to vaporize—and migrate into your popcorn. "They stay in your body for years and accumulate there," says Naidenko, which is why researchers worry that levels in humans could approach the amounts causing cancers in laboratory animals. DuPont and other manufacturers have promised to phase out PFOA by 2015 under a voluntary EPA plan, but millions of bags of popcorn will be sold between now and then.

The solution: Pop natural kernels the old-fashioned way: in a skillet. For flavorings, you can add real butter or dried seasonings, such as dillweed, vegetable flakes, or soup mix.

4. Nonorganic Potatoes

The expert: Jeffrey Moyer, chair of the National Organic Standards Board

The problem: Root vegetables absorb herbicides, pesticides, and fungicides that wind up in soil. In the case of potatoes—the nation's most popular vegetable—they're treated with fungicides during the growing season, then sprayed with herbicides to kill off the fibrous vines before harvesting. After they're dug up, the potatoes are treated yet again to prevent them from sprouting. "Try this experiment: Buy a conventional potato in a store, and try to get it to sprout. It won't," says Moyer, who is also farm director of the Rodale Institute (also owned by Rodale Inc., the publisher of Prevention). "I've talked with potato growers who say point-blank they would never eat the potatoes they sell. They have separate plots where they grow potatoes for themselves without all the chemicals."

The solution: Buy organic potatoes. Washing isn't good enough if you're trying to remove chemicals that have been absorbed into the flesh.

14 ways to make veggies less boring.

5. Farmed Salmon

The expert: David Carpenter, MD, director of the Institute for Health and the Environment at the University at Albany and publisher of a major study in the journal Science on contamination in fish.

The problem: Nature didn't intend for salmon to be crammed into pens and fed soy, poultry litter, and hydrolyzed chicken feathers. As a result, farmed salmon is lower in vitamin D and higher in contaminants, including carcinogens, PCBs, brominated flame retardants, and pesticides such as dioxin and DDT. According to Carpenter, the most contaminated fish come from Northern Europe, which can be found on American menus. "You could eat one of these salmon dinners every 5 months without increasing your risk of cancer," says Carpenter, whose 2004 fish contamination study got broad media attention. "It's that bad." Preliminary science has also linked DDT to diabetes and obesity, but some nutritionists believe the benefits of omega-3s outweigh the risks. There is also concern about the high level of antibiotics and pesticides used to treat these fish. When you eat farmed salmon, you get dosed with the same drugs and chemicals.

The solution: Switch to wild-caught Alaska salmon. If the package says fresh Atlantic, it's farmed. There are no commercial fisheries left for wild Atlantic salmon.

6. Milk Produced with Artificial Hormones

The expert: Rick North, project director of the Campaign for Safe Food at the Oregon Physicians for Social Responsibility and former CEO of the Oregon division of the American Cancer Society

The problem: Milk producers treat their dairy cattle with recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH or rBST, as it is also known) to boost milk production. But rBGH also increases udder infections and even pus in the milk. It also leads to higher levels of a hormone called insulin-like growth factor in milk. In people, high levels of IGF-1 may contribute to breast, prostate, and colon cancers. "When the government approved rBGH, it was thought that IGF-1 from milk would be broken down in the human digestive tract," says North. As it turns out, the casein in milk protects most of it, according to several independent studies. "There's not 100% proof that this is increasing cancer in humans," admits North. "However, it's banned in most industrialized countries."

The solution: Check labels for rBGH-free, rBST-free, produced without artificial hormones, or organic milk. These phrases indicate rBGH-free products.

Don’t be fooled by these 11 health food imposters.


7. Conventional Apples

The expert: Mark Kastel, former executive for agribusiness and codirector of the Cornucopia Institute, a farm-policy research group that supports organic foods

The problem: If fall fruits held a "most doused in pesticides contest," apples would win. Why? They are individually grafted (descended from a single tree) so that each variety maintains its distinctive flavor. As such, apples don't develop resistance to pests and are sprayed frequently. The industry maintains that these residues are not harmful. But Kastel counters that it's just common sense to minimize exposure by avoiding the most doused produce, like apples. "Farm workers have higher rates of many cancers," he says. And increasing numbers of studies are starting to link a higher body burden of pesticides (from all sources) with Parkinson's disease.

The solution: Buy organic apples. If you can't afford organic, be sure to wash and peel them first

Historic train comes to Muskogee

Posted Thursday, April 8th, 2010 at 10:26 am I am very pleased to announce that Muskogee has been selected to participate in a historic event. The last steam locomotive built for the Union Pacific Railroad, No.844 will make a stop in Muskogee on Thursday, April 8th.

Union Pacific Railroad’s legendary steam locomotive, No. 844, will travel more than 3,500 miles from its base in Wyoming on a 28-day, eight-state tour to South Texas, to celebrate the railroad’s history and heritage.

The train will be arriving on Thursday (April 8th) around 10:30 a.m. at the Union Pacific office, located at the Martin Luther King railroad crossing, just east of Main Street. The public is invited to come see this historic steam locomotive, known as the “Living Legend” and the commemorative support cars which comprise the excursion train. Live band music will add to the “ceremonial train stop” atmosphere. The train will pull out at noon to continue on its momentous journey.

This should prove to be a tremendous event and we hope you will join us as Union Pacific’s ambassador of goodwill; No. 844 makes its stop in Muskogee on this historic tour.

Ever since Henry Ford's Model T popularized automobiles in 1908, car companies have worked tirelessly designing, manufacturing, marketing and selling different models in the hopes that each would enjoy longevity in the marketplace. The brands associated with the major players have in recent years been challenged in terms of sales, and in some cases have been abandoned altogether. Ford Motor Company's (NYSE: F - News) June 2, 2010 announcement about its decision to discontinue the Mercury brand is the latest in a series of brand terminations. Whether out of financial necessity or the desire to streamline product lines, here are five auto brands that have faded away.

1. Mercury

Mercury is a brand of the Ford Motor Company that has been around for over 70 years. Ford recently decided in early June to end Mercury production before the end of the year. Mercury was originally created to offer Ford customers a premium vehicle. The continued popularity and corresponding sales of the Ford branded vehicles has left the Mercury brand weak, with many of its loyal customers now driving Fords.

Ford Motor Company has a 16% market share in the United States, with Mercury contributing only 0.8%. Mercury's market share has been flat or declining for years, and Ford Motor Company has decided to focus its attention on the Ford brand and its luxury Lincoln brand.

2. Hummer

In February, 2010, General Motors (Pinksheets: MTLQQ.PK - News) announced it would be phasing out its Hummer brand after an unsuccessful attempt to sell the brand to a Chinese manufacturer. Hummer, with roots that go back to the 1992 military Humvees, faced challenges in recent years as consumers became more conscious about vehicle gas mileage. Hummers are notorious gas guzzlers and took criticism from environmental groups pressing for more fuel efficient vehicles.

Hummer is one of several recent General Motors brands to be discontinued

3. Pontiac

Anyone who paid attention on the road in the 1960s and 1970s took notice of muscle cars - those sleek, high performance vehicles with V8 engines that could be heard from a mile away. A brand of General Motors, Pontiac made vehicles and muscle cars that defined an era with legendary models such as the GTO and Trans Am.

Though Pontiac was at one time one of the top selling brands in the United States, its leadership was unable to devise a strategy that would allow the Pontiac brand to continue. In business since 1926, Pontiac was discontinued in April, 2009.

4. Saturn

General Motors halted production of its Saturn brand in October, 2009 after a deal to sell to Penske Automotive Group failed. Saturn, with a vehicle line that included mostly small to mid-size cars, had been around since 1985. General Motors has enjoyed successful brands over the years, but Saturn struggled and was never profitable.

General Motors filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in mid-2009, and was the recipient of U.S. government TARP loans (bailout) following the economic meltdown of 2008. Under scrutiny to pay back loans and become a sustainable corporation, GM has been forced to streamline its brands and focus on the lines that have the most potential.

5. Oldsmobile

Another General Motors brand, Oldsmobile was founded as the Olds Motor Vehicle Company in 1897. Claiming to be the first company to mass-produce vehicles, Oldsmobile joined GM in 1908. Oldsmobile was the first brand to come with fully automatic transmissions, debuted in the 1940 Hydra-Matic models. Competitive with both Chevrolet and Ford, Oldsmobile's Cutlass series became the best-selling car in the United States in 1976. GM pulled the plug in 2004, citing that "Oldsmobile production has remained unprofitable" and that it would therefore end manufacturing.

The Bottom Line

Since the invention of the automobile, brands have come and gone. Many have faded away, but a few remain strong in the hearts of collectors and enthusiasts, making occasional appearances at auto shows, or in magazines and online venues. The auto industry, which produced more than 60 million vehicles in 2009, is the most significant economic sector in terms of revenues.

Facing rising fuel costs, changes in consumer spending habits and increased volatility in raw materials pricing - particularly steel - the auto industry has been forced to analyze its fleets in an attempt to streamline production. As automobile manufacturers respond to a dynamic climate, others may join the ranks of dead auto brands.

NAVY MAN CLAIMS US military has crafts which reach Moon in 90 min and we went to Mars


http://thetruthbehindthescenes.wordpress.com/2010/12/31/us-military-has-crafts-which-reach-moon-in-90-min-and-we-went-to-mars/





(CNN) -- 7-1-2010 A highway-worthy airplane moves one step closer to production with a recent weight exemption approved by the Federal Aviation Administration.

The Transition Roadable Aircraft, developed by Massachusetts-based engineering firm Terrafugia, will be allowed a maximum takeoff weight of 1,430 pounds, the same allowance made for aircraft designed to operate on water.

Other planes in the class, called Light Sport Aircraft, are limited to a maximum takeoff weight of 1,320 pounds.

"The main reason for that additional weight is the additional safety features that the Transition has -- because it's designed to be operated on the road -- that aren't found in other light aircraft," said Anna Dietrich, Terrafugia's chief operating officer.

A protective safety cage, airbags and an energy absorbing crumple zone are among the extra features.

Light sport aircraft are limited to carrying two people -- a pilot and a passenger. The pilot must have a Sport Pilot certificate, which requires 20 hours of flight training. "It's a certification more appropriate to the size and complexity of these simple aircraft," Dietrich said.

"There's actually programs that you can do in about two weeks. You can take a couple weeks off of work and come home a pilot, so it's a very accessible, very exciting way of getting into aviation and giving yourself that additional freedom and flexibility," Dietrich said.

Going from plane to car "takes about the same amount of time as putting down your convertible top," and the transition takes place from inside the cockpit. After landing, a cockpit-operated system folds up the wings, and the pilot can drive away.

Transition is designed for trips of up to about 450 miles and can travel about 100 miles per hour in the air and "highway speeds" on the ground of "65, 70, [miles per hour] -- something like that," Dietrich said.

"We're really not pushing the performance as an automobile because it is really designed to be used as an airplane that has this additional capability," she said.

"Functionally, it's a lot closer to an airplane than it would be to your car."

The price is more in line with aircraft as well; Terrafugia anticipates the Transition will cost $194,000. The first delivery will occur in about 18 months, Dietrich said.

The Transition still has to receive FAA certification and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration testing before it goes into production. The Transition completed more than 20 test flights last year.

10 TRICKS TO IMPROVING YOUR MEMORY

10 Brain-Boosting Habits
12 Ways to Keep Your Mind Sharp
What’s the name of your daughter’s teacher, and where did you put your keys again? If you’ve ever wished you could do some simple things to sharpen your memory skills, you can. We’ve talked to the experts and compiled the latest thinking on improving the muscles in your brain associated with memory.

1. Talk with your hands.
It may sound strange, but waving your hands and gesturing while trying to learn a concept may help your brain remember something important, says Jeff Brown, PsyD, ABPP, coauthor of The Winner’s Brain. "Gesturing in a meaningful way while you are learning may help you when recalling the concept,” he says. “The idea is that you are storing at least two different types of information about something you'll need to recall later. A good example of this is when kids speak math problems aloud, but also 'work them' in the air.” Tactics to try: When you’ve just learned someone’s name, “write” it down on the palm of your hand with your finger. The act of tracing the letters on your palm (discreetly, of course) can help your brain remember it, says Dr. Brown. Or, “Air-write on an imaginary map of your grocery store or mall as you name aloud the items or stores you need to remember when shopping.”

2. Take a chill pill.
Learning to calm down and not carry as much stress can help your brain in significant ways, says Elizabeth Lombardo, PhD, PT, a psychologist and physical therapist in Wexford, Pennsylvania, and the author of A Happy You: Your Ultimate Prescription for Happiness. “The best tip to improve your memory is: Reduce your stress,” says Dr. Lombardo. “Research shows that when people experience chronic stress, their hippocampus—the part of your brain that is responsible for some memories—literally shrinks in size.” In fact, a 2007 study in the journal Neurology by researchers at Rush University Medical School found that people who are easily distressed and had more negative emotions were more likely to develop memory problems than more easygoing people. How to reduce your stress? Consider delegating more tasks at work, clearing your social calendar for the weekend (there’s nothing wrong with having nothing on the calendar!) and purging negative relationships from your life.

3. Get plenty of zzz’s.
You’ve heard the concept of “sleeping on it” when you’re faced with a problem or difficult decision, right? Well, getting a good night’s sleep can help you improve your memory, too. "Sleep is critical for memory consolidation,” says Dr. Brown. “Getting at least six hours of uninterrupted sleep following exposure to new information can help in the recall of that information.” But there’s an important side note: “The trick is going directly to bed without inserting any new information or activity between what you want to recall and going to sleep—no reading, no TV, no sex, no music."

4. Eat more fruits and veggies.
Eating your spinach—and carrots and peas—is not only good for your body, it’s good for your memory, too. A recent Harvard study found that people who ate more vegetables had a slower decline of brain function as they aged. “Other studies, such as one published in Pharmacology, have shown that essential brain-boosting nutrients found in certain produce, such as quercetin and anthocyanin, may reverse memory loss,” says Tosca Reno, a health and fitness expert and author of the bestselling book The Eat-Clean Diet. You can find these compounds in cruciferous vegetables, such as Brussels sprouts, broccoli and cabbage, as well as in leafy greens, including kale, spinach and Swiss chard. Also load up on brightly colored produce such as berries, red apples, eggplant and grapes—their bright hue is an indication of their brain-boosting antioxidants.

5. Join a book club.
Not only is reading great for your brain, but discussing what you’ve read can improve your memory by leaps and bounds, says Sandra Bond Chapman, PhD. In fact, a book club with your closest girlfriends may help strengthen your brain’s frontal lobe function. “The frontal lobe is the last region of the brain to develop, but the first to decline with age,” explains Dr. Chapman. “To strengthen function of the frontal lobe, engage in deeper-level thinking activities such as interpreting what you read in a book, discussing the ‘larger messages’ in the book and pushing to see how many meanings you can derive from it.”

6. Go to yoga class.
What can a downward-facing-dog pose do for your memory? A lot, says Gina Norman, a yoga teacher in New York City. “A new study out of the University of North Carolina shows that brief meditative exercise helps cognition and skills essential to critical thinking,” she says. But if you’re not into yoga, exercise of any kind works to boost your brain, says Dr. Lombardo. “Research shows that exercise increases the blood flow to all areas of your body, including the brain and specifically areas involved in memory,” she says. “One study found that mice who exercised grew new brain cells in the dentate gyrus, a part of the hippocampus which can be affected by declines in memory as we get older.” Short on time? “Try running up a flight of stairs, jogging to a bathroom that is farther away from you, doing 50 jumping jacks, putting on a great song and dancing around, or grabbing your child’s hand and jumping on the bed together.”

7. Sniff some rosemary.
Parsley and sage are great, as is thyme, but when it comes to improving memory, rosemary is king. In a recent study, UK researchers looked at scents and how they boosted or detracted from mental performance. They found that office workers whose cubicles were infused with the scent of rosemary had better long-term memory than those in unscented cubes. “There are other essential oils that can help with memory, but rosemary is by far the best and most economical,” says Cher Core, an aromatherapist in Boston. “Diffuse rosemary essential oil in the air, wear it in a perfume, use it in mists and more. It is a good choice for those studying and folks who need help with memory, focus and concentration.”

8. Pay attention.
Duh, right? It may sound obvious, but according to experts, when most people think they’re having memory problems, it’s really because they were distracted or didn’t record the information in their brain properly to begin with, says Linda Edelstein, PhD, adjunct faculty at Northwestern University and the author of The Art of Midlife. “When people cannot retrieve information it is often because they haven't taken it in in the first place,” she says. “You cannot recall information that you did not store.” The number-one trick to paying closer attention? Stop multitasking and be fully present. That means setting down the BlackBerry while lunching with your friend, turning off the TV when you’re trying to read something and not letting your eyes—or mind—wander when chatting with someone at a party. You’ll be more likely to remember the person’s name.

9. Learn a new song.
Have you ever found yourself singing along to a song you love that debuted 10 years ago, and yet you still don’t know the lyrics? Learning the words could be fun, but it could also be good for your memory in general. By memorizing a song, “you will be working out at least two different kinds of memory, auditory and verbal, which is probably something you don't do very often,” says Cynthia Green, PhD, an expert on brain health and memory. “The research suggests that constantly challenging our brains with intellectual pursuits may boost our ‘cognitive reserve’ and can have the associated benefit of reducing our dementia risk over the long-term.”

10. Go ahead and doodle.
When’s the last time you grabbed a pencil and paper and let your mind go—drawing hearts and rainbows, or whatever scene or object popped into your head? Surprisingly, says Dr. Green, a free-flowing pen could be the key to strengthening your brain’s memory centers. “Doodling has been found in studies to boost concentration, which is an essential first step to learning and memory,” says Dr. Green. “After all, if you can't focus on information, you don't acquire it effectively, and you can never remember something you don't learn in the first place!”

How to Avoid Getting Ripped Off for Auto Repairs

Nine in ten women believe they are treated differently at auto-repair shops than men are.

Victoria Rumsey felt as if she was being taken for a ride. The brake warning light on her 2000 Volkswagen Jetta was on, so when she was getting her oil changed at the dealership, she asked the shop to look into it. She was told she needed a new suspension, brake pads and rotors. Rumsey didn't want to put a lot of money into the car, so she told the shop to skip the suspension. Then she got a call from the dealership's used-car division telling her that the service department mentioned she might be in the market for a car because hers was not drivable. Rumsey called the shop and found out that a broken knuckle (part of the steering assembly) would add $2,000 to the tab, and she couldn't drive the car without the fix. She decided to have the car towed from the dealership and ask a friend to do the repairs. The cost of parts: less than $150. "I felt as though I was being misled because I was a woman and didn't know too much about cars," she says.

Nine in ten women believe they are treated differently at auto-repair shops than men are, according to a national study by the Car Care Council, an association that encourages consumer education. Even I, the car writer at Kiplinger's, have been the target of repair-shop gender politics. Take our advice on taking control -- but keep in mind, anyone can get ripped off. These rules aren't just for ladies.



Get a clue.
You can diagnose what's wrong before you hit the shop by using the CarMD tool ($99; www.carmd.com). Just plug the hand-held device into your car (every model after 1996 has a standard connection port) and it reads the car's computer codes. You can then plug it into your computer for a full report of what problem the codes indicate, the most likely fix, and what labor and parts for the repair cost in your area. The report also lists recalls for your vehicle and summaries of technical service bulletins (recall notices are also available at www.nhtsa.gov). You can also use the car-care guide at www.carcare.org to learn about typical repairs and questions to ask the mechanic.



Show them you know.
Familiarize yourself with the owner's manual -- you'll avoid unnecessary maintenance if you know what needs to be done at every service interval. When choosing a repair shop, make sure the technicians are ASE certified by the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence.



Use all your senses to describe a problem, says auto expert Lauren Fix, author of Lauren Fix's Guide to Loving Your Car (St. Martin's Griffin, $17.99). If you say you feel the car pulling to the left, particularly at speeds faster than 40 miles per hour, or you hear a knocking sound only when you turn right, it shows that you've been paying attention and may help the technician diagnose the problem faster.



Don't overpay for repairs.
If you're getting the car repaired by an independent shop, call the service department at your dealership after you get the diagnosis to see whether it's covered by the warranty, a recall or a technical service bulletin; having the car fixed at an independent shop won't void the warranty, but you may have to pay for the repair.



RepairPal.com can help you find out whether your mechanic is quoting a fair price. Enter your car's make, model and year, plus your zip code. You'll see a price range for dozens of fixes at dealerships and shops in your area.



Get a second opinion.
If you're unsure about what you're being told, go somewhere else. Don't repeat what the other shop said; just provide the same information about the problem and see what the mechanic finds and what the shop will charge to fix it. Before a repair, ask to see the part, where it goes and why it needs to be replaced, and then ask to see the old part after the repair is made. If you feel pressured to make a repair, walk away.

HOW TO SAVE $90.00 A MONTH ON YOUR TV BILL

First Person: How We Cut the Cord and Now Enjoy (Almost) Free TV
.
Ted Sherman, On Tuesday January 18, 2011, 2:45 pm EST

*Note: This was written by a Yahoo! contributor. Sign up with the Yahoo! Contributor Network to start publishing your own finance articles.

We cut the cord after our local cable provider, Time-Warner, raised our rates to over $90 a month for our cable television service alone. We have one HDTV and were subscribed to the basic cable service, with a digital box. We also subscribed to what they called their "Variety" tier, which included A & E, BBC America, Discovery Channel and the other basic cable channels. We did not get HBO or any premium channels and there were many other basic channels not even included in their Variety tier. In addition, we were charged $10 a month for the rental of the DVR unit and another $10 a month for the ten or so HD channels they offered. The package was originally offered at about $50 a month, but promotional discounts were eliminated or expired and the rate climbed to over $90 for that same service level.

After cutting the cord, stopping the service and returning the devices, we needed to initially connect our computer to the TV. We use a PC and bought a converter box called PCtoTV from a company called Kworld as well as a VGA signal splitter. Now we take the VGA signal from the PC into the splitter, with one feed going to our desktop monitor, and the other VGA feed going to the converter. The device converts the signal to S-VIDEO, which we then connect to an input on our TV. Audio comes from the computer speakers, but can also be fed to the TV. Everything looks and sounds great, but we cannot watch in true HD.

Newer TVs have web connections built in, allowing direct hook up of your Ethernet or even wireless connection. Many other devices will also connect the Internet to your TV, such as some blu-ray DVD players and video game systems like Nintendo Wii, Sony PS3 and Microsoft XBox. We just received a Logitech Revue with Google TV set top box as a gift from our son. This allows us to watch Netflix streaming video and any other web content on our TV. The device is more open than other set-top boxes, as it allows you to view any website on your HDTV. NOw we don't need to use our computer, we use this wonderful device.

To get the local channels, we bought a $15. digital TV antenna, as our TV already has a digital converter built in. This allows us to watch the local Los Angeles channels, in HD. These look even better than cable or satellite, as those companies compress the signal for transmission, the HD over the air is not compressed. This is great for sports games, which look amazing. There are also multiple feeds for the new digital TV channels, for example our NBC affiliate has a the regular NBC feed, a second channel carrying only local content and a third channel with static news, weather and traffic graphics.

We watch Hulu.com for many current, network shows, also fox.com and nbc.com stream full episodes. Hulu.com also has a great selection of feature films and documentaries from National Geographic and PBS too. We like pbs.org for their great documentaries and shows like "Antiques Roadshow" and "American Experience".

Hulu.com has a Hulu Plus upgraded plan for $7.99 a month, giving access to even more archived shows and the ability to watch shows in HD. Hulu Plus also grants access to mobile and set-top devices, like ours. They offer a one week free trial, so we may check it out.

All of these methods rely on a good high speed Internet connection as the backbone. We are lucky that AT & T is offering a promotion in our area in Los Angeles for $19.99 a month for their "pro" level U-Verse DSL service rated at 6 megs download speed, the minimum speed you need to really watch video content.

So instead of paying $90 a month to Time-Warner, we are paying $7.99 a month just for Netflix, and all the other programming we watch is free. We also pay for the Internet access, but use that for other things beyond just watching video, and save a lot each and every month.

COCA COLAS SECRET FORMULA YAHOO 2-15-11

One of the most closely guarded trade secrets in the history of commerce may be a secret no more: the radio show "This American Life" thinks it has found the exact recipe for the world's most popular soft drink in a 1979 newspaper article.

According to the show's host, Ira Glass, the drink's secret flavoring component, which was created by pharmacist John Pemberton in 1886, is something called "Merchandise 7X." The show's staff recently stumbled across the February 8, 1979 edition of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, which published an article on page 28 about a leather-bound notebook that once belonged to Pemberton's best friend, another pharmacist in the Atlanta area named R. R. Evans. The notebook contained a number of pharmacological recipes--but the main entry, for students of commercial history, was what's believed to be the exact recipe for the soft drink: all of the ingredients listed with the exact amounts needed to whip up a batch.

The Journal-Constitution piece also featured a photo of the page in Evans' notebook detailing Coke recipe--essentially revealing the recipe to the world. But since 1979 well antedated the explosion of digital media, the photograph of the recipe didn't travel far beyond the Atlanta area.

Coke's recipe is one of the most closely guarded secrets in American commerce, steeped in cloak-and-dagger lore. After businessman Asa Griggs Candler bought out Pemberton--who also conjured up cough medicines and blood purifiers, among other things--in 1887 for $2,300, the exact recipe for 7X was placed in the vault in an Atlanta bank. It's been reported that only two company employees are privy to its ingredients and how they're mixed at any given time--and that those two aren't allowed to travel together out of fear that a traveling accident might take both of their lives.

According to company historian Mark Pendergrast, Candler was so paranoid about the recipe leaking out of his proprietary control that he would go through the company mail himself to prevent any employees from seeing invoices that might tip off its ingredients.

"It's this carefully passed-on secret ritual," Pendergrast told Glass, "and the formula is kept in a bank vault at Sun Trust, which used to be the Georgia Trust Company."

After Pendergrast reviewed the recipe in the 1979 newspaper photo, he concluded that it could well be the real deal: "I think that it certainly is a version of the formula," he said, adding, "It's very similar to a formula that I found" in one of John Pemberton's notebooks when he was doing research for the book. Coke, for its part, denies that the security of its secret formula has been breached. "Many third parties, including 'This American Life,' have tried to crack our secret formula," company spokeswoman Kerry Tressler said. "Try as they might, they've been unsuccessful." Coke's archive director Philip Mooney told "This American Life" that the recipe may well have been a "precursor" to the prized formula, but probably wasn't the version that "went to market."

So what's the secret to making Coke? Well, here's what was written in the notebook:

The recipe:

Fluid extract of Coca: 3 drams USP
Citric acid: 3 oz
Caffeine: 1 oz
Sugar: 30 (unclear quantity)
Water: 2.5 gal
Lime juice: 2 pints, 1 quart
Vanilla: 1 oz
Caramel: 1.5 oz or more for color

The secret 7X flavor (use 2 oz of flavor to 5 gals syrup):
Alcohol: 8 oz
Orange oil: 20 drops
Lemon oil: 30 drops
Nutmeg oil: 10 drops
Coriander: 5 drops
Neroli: 10 drops
Cinnamon: 10 drops

Pemberton had reportedly hit upon the formula for Coke in an attempt to overcome the addiction to morphine he contracted after the Civil War, so it's perhaps not surprising that, in addition to alcohol, the drink originally contained Coca leaves laced with cocaine. After Atlanta passed a local prohibition ordinance in the 1890s, the company took the booze out of the formula, and the company has used cocaine-free coca leaves since 1904.

When the beverage debuted in Atlanta-area pharmacies owned by friends of Pemberton, marketers pronounced it "a shot in the arm"-- while Pemberton himself hailed it as a cure for cure pain, impotence and headaches. In our more enlightened age, of course, we know that Coke "adds life"--together with a dollop or two of neroli and nutmeg oil.

CORRECTION: This post originally called "This American Life" "NPR's 'This American Life'." However, while the show does air on NPR, it is produced by Chicago Public Radio and distributed by Public Radio International.





DOCTORS WANT TEENAGERS BANNED FROM TANNING SALONS

Mon Feb 28, 7:03 am ET YAHOO
CHICAGO – The American Academy of Pediatrics wants teenagers banned from tanning salons to reduce their risk of skin cancer.

More than 30 states regulate indoor tanning by minors, with some banning children younger than 14 or requiring parental permission. Illinois and New York are among states considering bills barring anyone under 18 from indoor tanning.

The academy's stance is part of a policy statement appearing Monday in the journal Pediatrics.

Lead author Dr. Sophie Balk of Children's Hospital at Montefiore (MAHN'-tuh-fee-ohr) in New York says indoor tanning is popular among teenage girls. Some make getting a tan part of their senior prom ritual.

About 8,700 people died of melanoma last year and about 68,130 new melanomas were diagnosed. Evidence links indoor tanning with increased risk.





HOW TO SPEED UP YOUR PC FROM YAHOO 2-28-11

Is your desktop or laptop computer starting to feel a little poky? Even after just a few months of use, your PC or Mac may start to lose steam thanks to a fragmented hard drive, too many programs running in the background, or even a rogue piece of malware.

This week on Upgrade Your Life, Yahoo! News' Becky Worley serves up some quick and easy tricks for speeding up your PC or Mac, starting with …

1. Clean out your startup items
How long do you have to wait after hitting your PC's power button before you can actually get to work? Thirty seconds? A minute? Two minutes? More?

If you find yourself routinely twiddling your thumbs while your PC or Mac painstakingly boots itself up, maybe it's because your system is trying to fire up a slew of programs at the same time (and indeed, some programs will set themselves to launch at startup by default). Here's how to ease the frantic rush of competing startup programs:

For Windows: Click the Start menu, then select Programs (or All Programs in Windows 7), open the Startup folder, and then—as Becky suggest—delete mercilessly. (Don't worry; you're not deleting the programs themselves.) Note: if you see a program sitting in the Startup folder and you don't know what it's for, search on the Web to see what it does before hitting the "delete" button.

For Mac: Open System Preferences under the Apple menu, click the Accounts icon, and then click the Login Items tab. You may find a variety of arcane programs and helper apps lurking inside (such as the mysterious iTunesHelper), but again—search before you zap an unknown program. (Disabling the iTunesHelper app, for example, will prevent iTunes from opening automatically when you connect an iPhone or iPod.)

2. Check for running apps in the Windows task bar
Got a Windows-based PC? See that little row of tiny icons in the bottom-right corner of the screen? Over the course of weeks, months, or years, the number of icons sitting in the Windows task bar has probably grown larger and larger—and many of those icons represent programs that are running in the background and consuming your PC's limited resources.

Expand the task bar by clicking the little arrow on the side, then right-click each icon in succession. If you find, for example, that programs like Skype and iTunes are whirring away even when you're not using them, right-click and select "Close"—or, better yet, open the program and uncheck any "launch at startup" settings in the Preferences or Options menu.

3. Turn off P2P applications
Programs like BitTorrent and Skype work their magic with "peer-to-peer" technology, meaning they leverage the combined computing power and bandwidth of every PC or Mac running their software for such uses as massive file transfers (in the case of BitTorrent) or high-quality, Net-based voice and video chat (for Skype).

But while sharing the P2P burden qualifies you a good Netizen, it can also put a significant dent in your system's performance. If you've got programs like BitTorrent and Skype running all day, every day in the background, Becky suggests shutting them down until you really need them.

4. Root out viruses and malware
Nothing will slow your system down like a virus, a Trojan horse, or other types of malware. Plenty of commercial antivirus applications are available for Windows PCs, but Becky recommends trying Microsoft's free Security Essentials suite, which will sweep your system for any unwanted, nefarious software and provide ongoing protection via regular updates. Just visit Microsoft's Security Essentials website, download and install the software, and follow the instructions.

Anti-virus packages from the likes of Norton and McAfee are also available for Mac users, but there's an ongoing debate about whether virus protection on the Mac is more trouble than it's worth, given that malicious hackers are far more focused on Windows than they are on Mac OS X systems.

5. Clean up your hard drive
The more junk you have cluttering up your hard drive, the longer it takes for your system to access the data it needs—and that's a great reason to regularly scan your folders and toss out files and programs you don't need, or move them somewhere else to make more room.

One easy (and relatively cheap) solution, says Becky, is to buy an external hard drive for your music, photos, and videos, which can hog a surprisingly large amount of disk space (particularly when it comes to HD-quality TV shows and movies). You can find 500GB external hard drives online for as little as $50, while plenty of 1TB drives (or 1,000 gigabytes) sell for south of $100. Most USB 2.0 external drives are plug-and-play, meaning you just plug them into your PC's USB 2.0 port and you're ready to start dragging and dropping.

Another options: online storage sites, such as Dropbox and Carbonite.

Becky also recommends dumping any old programs that you no longer use. For Windows, click the Start menu, open the Control Panel, and select Add/Remove Programs (or "Uninstall a program" in Windows 7). Mac users can look in the Applications folder, which you can open in the Mac OS X Finder by clicking the Window menu and clicking Applications. See a program you simply never use anymore? Consider tossing it in the trash—although again, never throw away an application without knowing what it does first.

6. Turn off Mac Dashboard widgets
One of the more recent features in Mac OS X is the Dashboard—a layer of handy widgets that you can call up by clicking the Dashboard icon in the Dock. But while Dashboard widgets might be great for a quick check on the weather or to track the Dow, they also eat up a decent chunk of system resources.

Do yourself a favor and deactivate the widgets you don't use all that often, Becky advises. Activate the Dashboard, then click the "plus" sign in the bottom-left corner of the screen; next, click the "X" in the upper-left corner of any widgets that you won't miss.

7. Try a new browser—or update your old one
Has your browser been slowing to a crawl lately? Maybe it's time for a new one. Both Firefox and Google's Chrome Web browsers are popular—and powerful—alternatives to Internet Explorer, and don't forget that there's a Windows version of Apple's speedy Safari browser.

Want to stick with the browser you have? Make sure you're using the latest version. For Internet Explorer, fire up the Windows Update app under the Start Menu. For Firefox, select "Check for update" under the Help menu. Got Chrome? Select "About Google Chrome" under the wrench icon in the Windows version, or under the Chrome menu in Mac OS X. For Safari, launch "Apple Software Update" under the Start menu in Windows, or select Software Update under the Apple menu on the Mac.

One more thing: make sure you have the latest version of Adobe's Flash Player installed. Visit Adobe's Flash site to download the latest and greatest version (10.2, as of this writing).

8. Defragment your hard drive
Your computer's hard drive is a lot like a closet: the more cluttered it is, the longer it takes to find stuff. One of the easiest (and most effective) ways of tidying up your hard drive is to defragment it, a process that involves consolidating scattered blocks of data into a larger chunk, resulting in bigger swaths of free disk space.

Luckily, defragmenting your hard drive in Windows is a snap. Select Computers from the Start menu, right-click on the icon that represents your hard drive, select Properties, click the Tools tab, and click the Defragment Now button.

Got a Mac? Thanks to the disk optimization features built into Mac OS X, there's "little benefit" to manually fragmenting your hard drive, Apple says. But if you're feeling the need to try it anyway, there are several third-party defragmenting utilities for the Mac, including iDefrag and Drive Genius; just make sure to back up your data before giving them a go.

FORMULA FOR HAPPINESS









CLICK HERE FOR Overcoming The Fear of Death





How about making things with your own hands? I find it is quite satisfying to be able to take a few pieces of wood, shape them to fit together in various ways, and assemble them into something beautiful and useful! When I finish a piece of furniture, or a chessboard with the pieces, or some other high end piece of woodwork I get a great sense of accomplishment, knowing that what I created will be appreciated for years to come. Therefore what is important to me as far as being happy with a job is liking what I do and knowing others do too!
My point is that you make your own happiness. No one else can do that for you. It is a concious decision that you must make for yourself. Tell yourself that you will be happy and you will be!
Lots of people tell me all the time that they are bored. I say to them that I never ever get bored. A bored person is someone who cannot think of anything to do, and therefore they are unhappy as well. I decided long ago to have several things that I like to do. When I tire of one thing I put it away and pick up another. I can always go back to the first thing when I'm ready.
So if you wish to be happy, do something you like to do. To keep from being bored, think of something to do that you will enjoy; and if you get tired of it find something else to do for a while. Most of all though, make a conscious decision to be happy and you will!

To the woman who complained that riches hadn’t made her happy, the Master said “You speak as if luxury and comfort were ingredients of happiness; whereas all you need to be really happy, my dear, is something to be enthusiastic about.

Anthony de Mello

The three grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something to love and something to hope for.

Addison

How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these.

George Washington Carver

Ask yourself whether the dream of heaven and greatness should be waiting for us in our graves–or whether it should be ours here and now and on this earth.

Ayn Rand


Maybe this world is another planet’s hell.

Aldous Huxley

The talent for being happy is appreciating and liking what you have, instead of what you don’t have.

Woody Allen

The greater part of our happiness or misery depends on our dispositions, and not our circumstances.

Martha Washington

Without that innate sense of human worth, a man cannot long endure adversity, nor can he long enjoy prosperity.

Confucius

My life has no purpose, no direction, no aim, no meaning, and yet I’m happy. I can’t figure it out. What am I doing right?

Charles M Schulz

IMPROVE YOUR EYESIGHT FROM YAHOO 5-30-11

your way to a future of longevity.

1. Eat for bright eyesight

Protect your peepers with a vision-ary diet! Our eyes require multiple nutrients to function optimally. Start with these:

• Vitamins A, C, E, and minerals like copper and zinc are essential to eyesight.

• Antioxidants, including beta-carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin, protect the macula from sun damage. Get these antioxidants from dark leafy greens, egg yolks, yellow peppers, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, and carrots--notice any color pattern here? Current research shows that consuming yellow and green vegetables can help prevent age-related macular generation, a leading cause of blindness. Find out more about beta-carotene in the Natural Health Dictionary.

• Foods rich in sulfur, cysteine, and lecithin help protect the lens of your eye from cataract formation. Excellent choices include garlic, onions, shallots, and capers.

• Anthocyanin-rich blueberries, grapes, and goji berries have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that can help improve your vision. Find out more about anthocyanins in the Natural Health Dictionary.

• DHA is a fatty acid found in coldwater fish like wild salmon, sardines, mackerel, and cod. DHA provides structural support to cell membranes to boost eye health.

• To prevent dehydration and dry eyes remember to drink filtered water daily: eight 8 ounce glasses every day to lubricate your eyes.

2. Exercise your eyes

These simple exercises will help you maintain optimal vision and may also keep those annoying eye floaters at bay. Perform these exercises first thing in the morning, before bedtime, or any time your eyes feel fatigued. Make sure that your hands are clean and that your mood is relaxed. Commit to daily practice and you may just see better results within one month.

• Warm your eyes. Rub your palms together to create heat, and then place them against your eyes for five seconds. Repeat this three times.

• Roll your eyes. Start by looking up and then slowly circle10 times clockwise and 10 times counterclockwise.

• Focus. Hold a pen at arm's length, focus your eyes on it, and slowly bring the pen closer until it's about six inches away from your nose. Then slowly move it back, keeping your eyes focused on the pen, 10 times in all.

• Massage your temples. Using your thumb knuckles, massage your temples in small circles, 20 times in one direction and 20 in the other. Repeat the same actions above the mid-point of the eyebrows at the forehead, then below the eyes on both sides of the bridge of the nose.

• Take a mini-nap. Put your head back, close your eyes, and relax for three minutes.

3. Limit Environmental Toxins

External factors can contribute to eye damage. These include fluorescent lights, computer screens, environmental allergens, chlorine in swimming pools, air conditioning and heating, reading in dim lighting, and constant rubbing of the eyes. Do not smoke and limit your exposure to cigarette smoke as it may increase optic pressure. Remember to wear sunglasses to protect your precious eyes from UV exposure.

4. R & R for your eyes

Getting enough sleep is essential for eye health. Sleep time allows your eyes to fully rest, repair, and recover. Insufficient sleep may weaken your vision, so shoot for eight hours of sound sleep a night. Give your eyes a break once an hour during your workday: rest your eyes 10 minutes for every 50 minutes spent reading or in front of the computer. If your eyes feel overly tired, lie down and place cooling cucumber slices over your eyelids.

I hope that you maintain excellent eye health well into the future! Many of the above defined terms were adapted from my newest Kindle book, The Natural Health Dictionary, a comprehensive guide that answers all your questions about natural remedies, healing herbs, longevity foods, vitamins, and supplements.

I invite you to visit often and share your own personal health and longevity tips with me.

WHAT YOUR CHECK ENGINE LIGHT REALLY MEANS


REALLY CUTE ANIMAL VIDEOS LIKE THE CAT & THE OWL

by Tara Baukus MelloFriday, May 27, 2011
tweet85EmailPrint.Perhaps the most mysterious warning light on your car's dashboard is the "check engine" light, which can illuminate seemingly for no reason whatsoever and lead to an unexpected bill just for diagnosing the cause. However, it is possible to diagnose, and sometimes even fix, the cause of this warning light without paying a mechanic.More from Bankrate.com: • 7 Fun Cars That Make Sense
• 7 Luxury Sedan Leasing Deals to Love
• 7 Ways to Get Bottom Dollar for a Used Car Your car's check engine light is linked to its on-board diagnostic system, which measures functions such as engine speed, ignition timing, fuel mixture and sometimes, the timing of gear shifts. It then uses that information to identify problems in those functions that could affect emissions and performance. There is a wide range of problems that will cause the light to illuminate, ranging from minor to major, so it's important to determine the cause promptly.Before you find yourself in a situation with the check engine light illuminated, read your owner's manual to understand why it may illuminate and if it has different warnings to help you understand whether the problem is minor or more serious. In many cars, a check engine light that flashes rhythmically -- not just flickers on and off -- indicates a severe problem that needs immediate attention, while a steadily illuminated light indicates a less serious problem.[Click here to check auto rates in your area.]Once you thoroughly understand how your check engine light operates, here are three strategies you can try before paying your mechanic for a diagnosis.Remove and reinstall your gas cap, and make sure it's tight. Because the check engine light is associated with your car's emissions system, it will recognize if there are fuel vapors leaking from around your gas cap and set off the warning light. A loose or improperly installed gas cap is the most common reason for the light to illuminate. If the light does not go out after checking the gas cap and the car seems to be running fine, don't assume that was not the problem. It can sometimes take a few trips for the system to reset.Get the engine's diagnostic code from an automotive pro for free. If you own a General Motors vehicle with OnStar, contact an OnStar adviser who will read the code from your car remotely. Many auto parts stores and franchise oil change and transmission-service shops will read the code for free, though they may pressure you to do the repair with them. If you get a code read by one of these shops, ask for the code itself -- usually a single letter, followed by numbers -- and then use the shop for the repair if you are confident of the work.Get the code yourself. For $50 to $100, you can buy a diagnostic-system code reader at your local auto parts store or online. Some newer system scanners can connect right to your smartphone, such as the GoPoint GL1.[The New Cars Owners Love Most]Many cars have some method of displaying the trouble code, usually using the key and either rotating it between the accessory position (the position where you can power the radio and other accessories without the car running) and the "on" position (without starting the car) a specific number of times. With some, you keep the key in the accessory position, and push and hold the trip odometer and reset buttons. To find instructions, do an Internet search on the year, make and model of your car plus the words "check engine code" and "manually."Once you know the code, you can research what it is associated with on websites such as OBD-Codes.com (for on-board diagnostics codes) or ALLDATAdiy.com. In some cases, you can get instructions on how to repair the car yourself on those websites.Keep in mind that, if there is a problem beyond a loose gas cap, the trouble code produced by the diagnostic equipment is usually associated with more than one problem. Ultimately, it's good to work with a trusted mechanic who can deduce the cause of the problem in your car.___




9 SIGNS YOU SHOULD FIRE YOUR DOCTOR

How to Find the Right Doctor
Staying with a doctor you're not happy with is as harmful as staying in a relationship you know is bad because it's easier than making a change. But parting ways may be the healthiest move. Here are nine signs that it's time to fire your doctor. (For simplicity, the references below are to male doctors, but men don't have a monopoly on unacceptable behavior.)

1. You don't mesh. You and your doctor don't need to see eye to eye on everything, but it's helpful if you work well together. If you want a partnership, for example, a doctor who spouts commands is not the best fit. If you value warmth, you may not be able to build an effective relationship with a physician who seems formal or distant. "Some patients like doctors who are very direct and blunt," says Washington, D.C. based family physician Kenny Lin, who blogs for U.S. News. "And some patients can't stand that type of doctor because they think he or she isn't empathetic enough or doesn't provide enough options." When there's a mismatch, neither person is at fault—but it could be grounds for termination.

2. He doesn't respect your time. Do you routinely wait an hour to see your physician only to feel like he's speed-doctoring through the visit? You should never feel like you're being rushed. If your doctor doesn't take the time to answer your questions or address your concerns, there's a problem. The medical community is becoming increasingly sensitive to patients' precious time. When they're late for an appointment, some habitually tardy doctors have even begun compensating patients with money or gifts. If your doctor's chronic lateness makes you grind your teeth, why stay with him? Hint: If you're evaluating a prospective physician, investigate his timeliness beforehand.

3. He keeps you in the dark. A doctor should be open and thorough about why he recommends a certain treatment or orders a specific test, and he should share all results with you. "If a doctor doesn't explain himself, or at least not to your satisfaction, at that point a doctor is bad," Lin says. "I know doctors who have drawn blood or run a bunch of tests without telling patients why they're doing them and what they mean." It's also important that a doctor uses terms you understand, rather than complicated medical jargon; otherwise, explanations are meaningless. Your health is too important to feel confused or uninformed.

4. He doesn't listen. Does your doctor hear you out without interrupting? "It all comes down to communication and whether you feel like you're asking questions and they're not being answered," says Carolyn Clancy, director of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. She recalls visiting a doctor for a second opinion on whether she should go through with a procedure recommended by her dentist. "He made a big leap—that I didn't want to have it done because I was afraid of the pain—and kept reassuring me that it was virtually pain-free. That's not what I was asking. After three rounds, I concluded that we weren't going to get to a productive place, and I didn't go back."

5. The office staff is unprofessional. The receptionists are the link between you and the doctor. If they blow you off—or neglect to give your message to the physician, say about side effects of a new medication—your health could be at risk. Even if you like your doctor, a bad office staff could signal it's time to look elsewhere.

6. You don't feel comfortable with him, or wonder about his competence. Doctors need to know intimate details you may not even share with friends or family members. If you're unable to disclose such facts, you and your doctor may not be the right match. A sense of unease about his decisions and recommendations, even if you can't say exactly why, is also a perfectly legitimate reason for cutting the cord, says Don Powell, president of the American Institute for Preventive Medicine, a nonprofit that promotes healthy behavior through wellness programs and publications. Beware of sloppy medical mistakes, too: If your doctor prescribes a medication to which you're allergic, and you know that information is in your history, a separation may be in order.

7. He doesn't coordinate with other doctors. Your primary care physician should be the quarterback of your healthcare team, managing each step of the medical process. That means keeping track of specialists' reports and instructions and talking with you about their recommendations. If he's slacking, an important piece of your care could slip through the cracks.

8. He's unreachable. A good doctor is available for follow-up questions and concerns. Patient advocate Trisha Torrey, author of You Bet Your Life! The 10 Mistakes Every Patient Makes, recalls the time her husband developed severe tooth pain on a weekend. His dentist's voicemail included a cell phone number and a promise of a quick response, but he never heard back. An emergency clinic visit and root canal later, he told his dentist she was fired. A growing number of doctors are making themselves available to patients via E-mail, text message, and Skype, and at the very least, you need to know that in an emergency, you won't be left hanging.

9. He's rude or condescending. Time to part ways. Same goes if he trivializes your concerns as though they're not valid. One of the clearest signs you should move on is if he walks out of the room while you're still talking, says Clancy. That's what happened when her sister met with a surgeon to determine if her daughter should go through with a procedure. "When my sister finished asking her question, the doctor was gone," Clancy recalls. "She called me afterward and I told her, 'You have to find someone else. You'll regret it if you don't.

EmailPrint.A little bit of TLC before washing can go a long way when you’re doing the laundry. Say buh-bye to stains forever.

See the other 40 of our classic cleaning tips for your clothes.

Plus: Make your compact laundry room packed with style

1. Body oils rub onto shirt collars and attract dirt, leaving them grimy and worse for wear. Reverse the damage by grabbing your shampoo and a clean paintbrush and paint a line over the soiled collar before washing.

2. Soaking clothes overnight in
a tub of water really helps loosen
dirt and grime and can be especially effective when your clothes have
that dingy-all-over look.

3. To keep brights their brightest
and blacks from fading, turn garments inside out and choose
the coolest temperature setting that will get them clean.

4. For stubborn food stains, such as coffee, soy sauce, or mustard, blot the troubled area with foam shaving cream and allow it to sit for half an hour. Repeat the process and if the stain remains, try leaving the cream in overnight.

5. If you’ve just washed a stained garment, examine the results before tossing it in the dryer. If the stain didn’t come out, the dryer’s heat will set it and make it even harder to deal with. Your chances of success are greater if you remove the item while it’s damp.

6. Your best chance of salvaging a stained garment after it’s been in the dryer is to soak it for thirty minutes in a solution that’s equal parts water and hydrogen peroxide. Be sure to wash it immediately afterward.

7. Adding a quarter cup of baking soda to a wash will take care of stale, musty odors common during the summer months and give your machine a fragrant boost to boot.

8. When conquering dried bloodstains, dampen the damaged garment with hydrogen peroxide, then rinse with cold water. If possible, set your washing machine’s temperature for cold as well.

9. When battling mildew and soap scum-stained shower curtains, don’t hesitate to drop them in the washing machine. For cloth as well as heavier vinyl and plastic curtains, use ordinary laundry soap and the recommended amount of bleach per load.

10. Whether you’re washing by machine or hand, vinegar is a must-have in any laundry room. A cup of vinegar is an effective fabric softener in the rinse cycle, adding a little bit to a hand wash will keep clothes from staying sudsy.

FOODS THAT CAN CAUSE A STROKE

Few things feel more terrifying and random than a stroke, which can strike without warning. And fear of stroke -- when a blood vessel in or leading to the brain bursts or is blocked by a blood clot, starving brain cells of oxygen and nutrients -- is well founded. After all, stroke is the number-three killer in the U.S., affecting more than 700,000 people each year. Here are five foods that cause the damage that leads to stroke.

1. Crackers, chips, and store-bought pastries and baked goods

Muffins, doughnuts, chips, crackers, and many other baked goods are high in trans fats, which are hydrogenated oils popular with commercial bakeries because they stay solid at room temperature, so the products don't require refrigeration. Also listed on labels as "partially hydrogenated" or hydrogenated oils, trans fats are found in all kinds of snack foods, frozen foods, and baked goods, including salad dressings, microwave popcorn, stuffing mixes, frozen tater tots and French fries, cake mixes, and whipped toppings. They're also what makes margarine stay in a solid cube. The worst offenders are fried fast foods such as onion rings, French fries, and fried chicken.

Why it's bad
For years scientists have known trans fats are dangerous artery-blockers, upping the concentrations of lipids and bad cholesterol in the blood and lowering good cholesterol. Now we can add stroke to the list of dangers. This year researchers at the University of North Carolina found that women who ate 7 grams of trans fat each day -- about the amount in two doughnuts or half a serving of French fries -- had 30 percent more strokes (the ischemic type, caused by blocked blood flow to the brain) than women who ate just 1 gram a day. Another recent study, also in women, found that trans fats promoted inflammation and higher levels of C-reactive protein, which have been linked to an increased risk of diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.

What to do
Aim to limit trans fats to no more than 1 or 2 grams a day -- and preferably none. Avoid fast-food French fries and other fried menu items and study packaged food labels closely. Even better, bake your own cookies, cakes, and other snacks. When you can't, search out "health-food" alternative snacks, such as Terra brand potato chips and traditional whole grain crackers such as those made by Finn, Wasa, AkMak, Ryvita, and Lavasch.

2. Smoked and processed meats

Whether your weakness is pastrami, sausage, hot dogs, bacon, or a smoked turkey sandwich, the word from the experts is: Watch out.

Why it's bad
Smoked and processed meats are nasty contributors to stroke risk in two ways: The preserving processes leave them packed with sodium, but even worse are the preservatives used to keep processed meats from going bad. Sodium nitrate and nitrite have been shown by researchers to directly damage blood vessels, causing arteries to harden and narrow. And of course damaged, overly narrow blood vessels are exactly what you don't want if you fear stroke.

Many studies have linked processed meats to coronary artery disease (CAD); one meta-analysis in the journal Circulation calculated a 42-percent increase in coronary heart disease for those who eat one serving of processed meat a day. Stroke is not the only concern for salami fans; cancer journals have reported numerous studies in the past few years showing that consumption of cured and smoked meats is linked with increased risk of diabetes and higher incidences of numerous types of cancer, including leukemia.

What to do
If a smoked turkey or ham sandwich is your lunch of choice, try to vary your diet, switching to tuna, peanut butter, or other choices several days a week. Or cook turkey and chicken yourself and slice it thin for sandwiches.

How to Tell if Someone Is Having a Stroke

3. Diet soda

Although replacing sugary drinks with diet soda seems like a smart solution for keeping weight down -- a heart-healthy goal -- it turns out diet soda is likely a major bad guy when it comes to stroke.

Why it's bad
People who drink a diet soda a day may up their stroke risk by 48 percent. A Columbia University study presented at the American Stroke Association's 2011 International Stroke Conference followed 2,500 people ages 40 and older and found that daily diet soda drinkers had 60 percent more strokes, heart attacks, and coronary artery disease than those who didn't drink diet soda. Researchers don't know exactly how diet soda ups stroke risk -- and are following up with further studies -- but nutritionists are cautioning anyone concerned about stroke to cut out diet soda pop.

What to do
Substitute more water for soda in your daily diet. It's the healthiest thirst-quencher by far, researchers say. If you don't like water, try lemonade, iced tea, or juice.

4. Red meat

This winter, when the respected journal Stroke published a study showing that women who consumed a large portion of red meat each day had a 42-percent higher incidence of stroke, it got nutrition experts talking. The information that red meat, with its high saturated fat content, isn't healthy for those looking to prevent heart disease and stroke wasn't exactly news. But the percentage increase (almost 50 percent!) was both startling and solid; the researchers arrived at their finding after following 35,000 Swedish women for ten years.

Why it's bad
Researchers have long known that the saturated fat in red meat raises the risk of stroke and heart disease by gradually clogging arteries with a buildup of protein plaques. Now it turns out that hemoglobin, the ingredient that gives red meat its high iron content, may pose a specific danger when it comes to stroke. Researchers are investigating whether blood becomes thicker and more viscous as a result of the consumption of so-called heme iron, specifically upping the chance of strokes.

What to do
Aim to substitute more poultry -- particularly white meat -- and fish, which are low in heme iron, for red meat. Also, choose the heart-healthiest sources of protein whenever you can, especially beans, legumes, nuts, tofu, and nonfat dairy.

5. Canned soup and prepared foods

Whether it's canned soup, canned spaghetti, or healthy-sounding frozen dinners, prepared foods and mixes rely on sodium to increase flavor and make processed foods taste fresher. Canned soup is cited by nutritionists as the worst offender; one can of canned chicken noodle soup contains more than 1,100 mg of sodium, while many other varieties, from clam chowder to simple tomato, have between 450 and 800 mg per serving. Compare that to the American Heart and Stroke Association's recommendation of less than1,500 mg of sodium daily and you'll see the problem. In fact, a nutritionist-led campaign, the National Salt Reduction Initiative, calls on food companies to reduce the salt content in canned soup and other products by 20 percent in the next two years.

Why it's bad
Salt, or sodium as it's called on food labels, directly affects stroke risk. In one recent study, people who consumed more than 4,000 mg of sodium daily had more than double the risk of stroke compared to those who ate 2,000 mg or less. Yet the Centers for Disease Control estimate that most Americans eat close to 3,500 mg of sodium per day. Studies show that sodium raises blood pressure, the primary causative factor for stroke. And be warned: Sodium wears many tricky disguises, which allow it to hide in all sorts of foods that we don't necessarily think of as salty. Some common, safe-sounding ingredients that really mean salt:


•Baking soda

•Baking powder

•MSG (monosodium glutamate)

•Disodium phosphate

•Sodium alginate

What to do
Make your own homemade soups and entrees, then freeze individual serving-sized portions. Buy low-sodium varieties, but read labels carefully, since not all products marked "low sodium" live up to that promise.

10 Ways to Prevent a Stroke





Superfoods for Amazing Skin By Lucy Danziger and the staff at SELF Sep 27, 2011 YAHOO HEALTH


Superfoods for Amazing Skin






Check out the labels on your favorite skin-care products and potions and you’ll probably see that many of the beautifiers contain ingredients you’ll find in your fridge. Which made us think: Why not get more of the good-for-you stuff to enhance your complexion from the inside out? So we scoured the science and spent face-time with top experts to develop three diets—one each to tackle acne, aging and dry, dull skin—that basically involve filling up on delicious foods rich in skin-saving nutrients. Give them a try—and don’t be afraid to pile your plate high: It’s practically impossible to OD on nutrients through whole foods alone. All you have to do is identify your top skin woe and dish up a gorgeous future.

The problem: Acne
Sadly, embarrassing breakouts don’t always disappear after high school, but getting plenty of these three nutrients can help you banish blemishes whatever your age.

Vitamin A
“This antioxidant thins the epidermis, or outer layer of skin, which produces dead cells that can clog pores,” explains Jody Levine, M.D., a dermatologist in New York City. It also dries up sebum, the gross, oily, waxy stuff your skin glands produce that mixes with dead skin cells to create clogs and transport you to Zitville. The daily value (DV) of A is 5,000 international units (IUs), so get at least that much, and pair it with healthy fats such as olive oil or avocado: A is a fat-soluble vitamin, so your body will absorb it better.

GOOD SOURCES Sweet potatoes (28,000 IUs each); leafy greens such as spinach (23,000 IUs per chopped, cooked cup), kale (19,000 IUs per cooked cup) and broccoli (2,400 IUs per cooked cup); bright red, yellow and orange produce such as carrots (27,000 IUs per cooked cup), cantaloupe (5,400 IUs per cup), red bell peppers (4,700 IUs per cup) and red chile peppers (428 IUs each); asparagus (600 IUs per four spears)

Zinc
The mineral helps tame skin’s oil production; less oil (if you have an excess of the stuff) means less sebum—and fewer pimples, according to Dr. Levine. The RDA for zinc is 8 milligrams.

GOOD SOURCES Raw oysters (76 mg per six oysters), fortified breakfast cereals such as Total (15 mg per ¾ cup), canned blue crab (5 mg per cup), turkey (4 mg per cup), beef sirloin (4 mg per 3 ounces), pork loin (4 mg per 3 oz), part-skim ricotta (3 mg per cup)

Omega-3 fatty acids
They help maintain the body’s essential oils, the healthy, non-pore-clogging kind that keep skin cells from drying out, flaking and congesting pores, Dr. Levine says. They also have anti-inflammatory properties that aid with healing. “Acne is a teeny little wound on your face,” says Kristin Kirkpatrick, R.D., nutrition advisor to YouBeauty.com. There’s no RDA for omega-3s; Kirkpatrick suggests aiming for 600 mg daily.

GOOD SOURCES Flaxseed (1,600 mg per 1 tablespoon), canola oil (1,300 mg per 1 tbsp), soybean oil (900 mg per 1 tbsp)

The problem: Dry, dull skin
You already know that drinking plenty of liquids helps rejuvenate flaky, flat-looking skin, so keep the water flowing—then add these vital nutrients to your freshen-up arsenal.

Omega-3 fatty acids
“As we get older, our oil glands produce less oil, so you see more flaking and scaling,” says dermatologist Valori Treloar, M.D., coauthor of The Clear Skin Diet. Omega-3s may help lubricate skin to keep it looking dewy. Try to consume 600 mg a day.

GOOD SOURCES Flaxseed (1,600 mg per 1 tbsp), canola oil (1,300 mg per 1 tbsp), soybean oil (900 mg per 1 tbsp)

Niacin
“When skin cells dry out, their barrier to the environment breaks down,” Dr. Levine says. “Bacteria and other things from the outside can then penetrate more easily and cause an inflammatory reaction.” And that means you can add redness and irritation to your list of complaints. Niacin, a B vitamin, appears to help strengthen the skin’s barrier, by both hydrating cells and acting as an anti-inflammatory, Dr. Levine says. The RDA for niacin is 14 mg.

GOOD SOURCES Chicken (12 mg per ½ breast), canned light tuna (11 mg per 3 oz), wheat flour (9 mg per cup), pork chops (7 mg per 3 oz), beef sirloin (6 mg per 3 oz), cornmeal (4 mg per cup)

Biotin
This is another B vitamin, and although its mechanisms aren’t yet well understood, biotin has been shown to help hair and nails grow, and it may also aid skin-cell turnover, which keeps your complexion looking fresh. There’s no RDA, but doctors consider 30 micrograms adequate.


GOOD SOURCES Eggs (up to 25 mcg each), avocado (up to 6 mcg each), salmon (up to 5 mcg per 3 oz)

The problem: Signs of aging
Getting older is fine (wisdom, respect, all that good stuff). Looking older, not so much. Thankfully, we can help stall the process by eating strawberries, pineapple and other delish foods.

Vitamin A
Of skin’s several layers, the dermis—which lies right below the surface layer of skin (or epidermis)—contains all the collagen, a protein that gives skin plumpness and elasticity. “Vitamin A helps increase collagen production and thickens the dermis,” Dr. Levine explains. The result: Skin looks fuller and bounces back more readily. And because it’s an antioxidant, A also helps repair the free radical damage to skin cells that leads to wrinkling and sagging. The DV is 5,000 IUs.

GOOD SOURCES Sweet potatoes (28,000 IUs each); leafy greens such as spinach (23,000 IUs per chopped, cooked cup), kale (19,000 per cooked cup) and broccoli (2,400 IUs per cooked cup); bright red, yellow and orange produce such as carrots (27,000 IUs per cooked cup ), cantaloupe (5,400 IUs per cup), sweet red bell peppers (4,700 IUs per cup) and red chile peppers (428 IUs each); asparagus (600 IUs per four spears)

Vitamin C
Also an antioxidant, “vitamin C basically helps mop up free radicals before they do any damage,” Dr. Levine says. You’ll hit your mark at 75 mg.

GOOD SOURCES Red bell peppers (152 mg each), broccoli (101 mg per cooked cup), strawberries (98 mg per cup), papaya (87 mg per cup), pineapple (74 mg per cup), kiwifruit (70 mg each), cantaloupe (59 mg per cup), cauliflower (46 mg per cup)

Plant polyphenols
These organic plant chemicals seem to do double dermis duty. For starters, polyphenols in green tea significantly increased circulation to skin in a recent study at the University of Witten-Herdeck in Germany. “We don’t know the mechanism, but if you’re getting more blood flow to the skin, the cells are getting increased nutrients, which can help support their health,” says study author Carolyn Moore, Ph.D. Participants drank the equivalent of 8 cups of decaffeinated green tea a day; Dr. Moore can’t speculate on the effect of drinking less, but it couldn’t hurt to start with 1 or 2 cups a day. People who drank water mixed with cocoa powder high in flavonols, another type of polyphenol, experienced a similar increase in hydration and blood flow to their skin, as well as less roughness and scaling, a study in The Journal of Nutrition shows. What’s more, cocoa’s flavonols seem to offer some UV ray protection: The skin of cocoa sippers showed less redness after sun exposure.

GOOD SOURCES Green tea, chocolate (a few ounces a day should do the trick)

Now you know what to eat for gorgeous, glowy skin—but there are also some foods you should steer clear of if you want to prevent acne and aging. Discover the top troublemakers at Self.com/fooddiet.

Cast-iron skillets may seem like an old-fashioned choice in the kitchen. But this dependable cookware is a must in the modern kitchen. Cast-iron skillets conduct heat beautifully, go from stovetop to oven with no problem and last for decades. (In fact, my most highly prized piece of cookware is a canary-yellow, enamel-coated cast-iron paella pan from the 1960s that I scored at a stoop sale for $5.) As a registered dietitian and associate nutrition editor of EatingWell Magazine, I also know that there are some great health reasons to cook with cast iron.

17 Healthy Recipes for Cast Iron Skillets

1. You can cook with less oil when you use a cast-iron pan.
That lovely sheen on cast-iron cookware is the sign of a well-seasoned pan, which renders it virtually nonstick. The health bonus, of course, is that you won’t need to use gads of oil to brown crispy potatoes or sear chicken when cooking in cast-iron. To season your cast-iron skillet, cover the bottom of the pan with a thick layer of kosher salt and a half inch of cooking oil, then heat until the oil starts to smoke. Carefully pour the salt and oil into a bowl, then use a ball of paper towels to rub the inside of the pan until it is smooth. To clean cast iron, never use soap. Simply scrub your skillet with a stiff brush and hot water and dry it completely.

2. Cast iron is a chemical-free alternative to nonstick pans.
Another benefit to using cast-iron pans in place of nonstick pans is that you avoid the harmful chemicals that are found in nonstick pans. The repellent coating that keeps food from sticking to nonstick pots and pans contains PFCs (perfluorocarbons), a chemical that’s linked to liver damage, cancer, developmental problems and, according to one 2011 study in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, early menopause. PFCs get released—and inhaled—from nonstick pans in the form of fumes when pans are heated on high heat. Likewise, we can ingest them when the surface of the pan gets scratched. Both regular and ceramic-coated cast-iron pans are great alternatives to nonstick pans for this reason.

3. Cooking with cast iron fortifies your food with iron.
While cast iron doesn’t leach chemicals, it can leach some iron into your food...and that’s a good thing. Iron deficiency is fairly common worldwide, especially among women. In fact, 10% of American women are iron-deficient. Cooking food, especially something acidic like tomato sauce in a cast-iron skillet can increase iron content, by as much as 20 times.

MYTHS ABOUT FREEZING FOOD - YAHOO - 10-9-11

Myth: You can freeze all foods.
While it’s true most edibles freeze under the right conditions, there are some that should never see the inside of your freezer. Delicate vegetables like lettuce practically disintegrate when they’re frozen then thawed. Creamy sauces that are frozen separate and “break” or curdle when thawed. Even coffee shouldn’t be stored in the freezer—especially dark roasts. The oils that make them so special break down in freezing temperatures, allowing the coffee to readily absorb off- flavors. The USDA also advises not to freeze canned goods or eggs in their shell. (But you can freeze canned goods if they are removed from their original packaging, as well as eggs as long as they are removed from their shell.)

Don’t Miss: 6 More Myths About Storing and Making Coffee

Myth: You can freeze food indefinitely.
This is true at least from a food-safety standpoint, but quality suffers the longer food is frozen. Here are some guidelines from the USDA as to how long to keep food in your freezer (at 0 degrees F) for optimal freshness:

•Soups, stews and casseroles: 2-3 months
•Cooked meat 2-3 months
•Uncooked steaks, roasts or chops: 4-12 months
•Cooked poultry: 4 months
•Uncooked poultry: 9-12 months
Of course how you store the item will lengthen or shorten its freezer life. Air coupled with moisture is the enemy of frozen food (think freezer burn), so if you can keep those two elements out you’ll give your frozen foods a longer life. That’s why I love the vacuum sealer. It sucks air out of the packaging so foods last longer than if they’re just stored in plastic bags or their original packaging.
Myth: Freezing kills bacteria.
Freezing foods renders bacteria inactive but doesn’t actually kill anything. That means if your food went into the freezer contaminated, once thawed it will still harbor the same harmful bacteria. Cooking it to the recommended temperature is the only way to ensure that your food is safe.

Don’t Miss: 10 Kitchen Rules You Should Follow

Myth: Frozen food has fewer nutrients than fresh.
Actually, the opposite can be true. Frozen fruits and vegetables may be even more healthful than some of the fresh produce sold in supermarkets because they tend to be processed at their peak ripeness, a time when, as a general rule, they are most nutrient-packed. If you’re worried about nutrient loss, eat your frozen fruits and veggies soon after purchase: over many months, nutrients in frozen vegetables do inevitably degrade. Finally, steam or microwave rather than boil your produce to minimize the loss of water-soluble vitamins.

Myth: Once thawed, food cannot be refrozen without cooking it first.
You can freeze and refreeze to your heart’s content as long as the food has not been left outside the fridge for more than 2 hours (or 1 hour in 90-degree heat). One point to be aware of is that refreezing anything uncooked, especially meat, will degrade the quality due to the loss of moisture in the thawing process. So although it is technically safe to eat, from a culinary standpoint, it’s best to avoid refreezing if at all possible.

Myth: You can store frozen food long-term anywhere in your freezer or anywhere that’s cold.
The door of the freezer is a handy place to store frozen items, but not necessarily the best place for long-term storage. The temperature near and on the door fluctuates every time the door is opened. Although the food may remain frozen, the freezing process could be slowed, opening up the possibility for larger ice crystals to form inside the food and destroy its integrity. To prevent this, store frozen foods toward the back of the freezer where a constant 0 degrees F is more likely to be achieved and use goods stored near the front or on the door sooner. And if the power goes out? Don’t open the freezer door! According to the USDA, a full freezer should remain frozen for 2 days. And if you’re tempted to store your freezer overflow in a snowbank—don’t. Even if the temperature is very cold, the sun can still heat up your frozen foods to dangerously warm temperatures. This is still an excellent way to store beer, though. So keep doing that.

How long do you keep food in your freezer?

There's one story that I think sums up Steves Jobs' career at Apple. An executive who had the job of reinventing the Disney Store once called up Jobs and asked for advice. His counsel? Dream bigger. I think that's the best advice he could leave us with. See genius in your craziness, believe in yourself, believe in your vision, and be constantly prepared to defend those ideas.





Police: Fla. pizza workers burned down rival store 10-29-11

CITY, Fla. (AP) — The battle for pizza supremacy has taken a wrong turn in Florida.

Two managers of a Domino's Pizza restaurant in Lake City, in north-central Florida, have been charged with burning down a rival Papa John's location. The motive? Police say one of the men admitted that he believed with his competitor out of the way, more pizza lovers would flock to his restaurant.

The Papa John's was gutted in the Oct. 20 fire.

Both men — Sean Everett Davidson, 23, and Bryan David Sullivan, 22 — were booked on an arson charge and were being held in jail.

The Star-Banner of Ocala reports (http://bit.ly/vJdDVQ) that police are still looking for an ignition device that the men claimed they made but did not use to start the fire.

How to Pay Zero Interest on Your Credit Card Balance Until 2013

If you’re heading into Spring with a fat balance on your credit card, you’re not alone. Millions of Americans have incurred excessive debt over the past few years, and this trend spikes early in the year.

And, when it comes to credit card debt, there is some good news and some bad news.

First, the bad news. Starting in Feb of 2011, new rules and regulations went effect that more tightly regulate what credit card companies can do. They're not able to retroactively increase rates, must have 45 days advance notice of rate hikes, and are limited in what they charge for overdraft fees. So, how can this be bad news for consumers?

Well, the bad news is that in order to compensate for lost revenue from these new rules, credit card companies have been jacking up interest rates for everyone. You may already have received notice that your borrowing costs have gone up.

So, what’s the good news? Well, the good news is that there still remains something people can do to immediately cut the interest rate on the amount they owe on their credit card to zero. It’s called a zero interest balance transfer.

By transferring the balance of your debt from your current credit card to a new interest-free card, you can give yourself time (often up to 21 months) during which no interest is charged against your starting balance. This allows all the money you make in payments each month to be applied directly into paying down your balance, shrinking the amount you owe much faster. This can greatly benefit your credit score and credit-to-debt ratio, both of which can make you much more attractive to lenders.

There are some things to consider before transferring your balance to a new card:

•Always take into account the length of the zero percent APR period.
•Be sure you are able to pay off your balance within this introductory period. Otherwise, high interest rates often kick in when the period ends.
•Make a payment schedule and set aside money each month to pay towards your balance.
•Ask up front about transfer fees. These can come as unexpected surprises and throw off the payment plan you have created.
So, how do you go about finding the very best credit card with a zero percent APR on balance transfers?

More good news! There is a great, free online service called CreditCards.com that can help you find offers from credit card companies eager to get your balance transfer business. All of the credit card offers are presented clearly so they’re easy to compare, and you can find the offer that works best for you.

The site is also a tremendous informational resource for consumers wanting to make informed decisions about their spending.

For many people, a zero balance transfer is a complete no brainer, and can result in significant savings in the short term. After all, why would you pay a penny more in interest than you have to? And, by eliminating your debt, you improve your credit score, and earn lower interest rates on your credit cards.

And, using a service like CreditCards.com is one of the best ways to find a balance transfer credit card that will help you get rid of your credit card balance fast.

SIX STEPS TO PERFECT FRIED CHICKEN

Let's put the debates to rest. Perfect fried chicken--golden brown, with a flaky-crisp crust and juicy meat--is easily accomplished at home. Here's how to achieve irresistible goodness every time, from the ultimate spice rub to a delicate dredge. (And yes, the pan you use matters, too.)

Hunter Lewis, Bon Appetit

We could go on for days singing chicken-fried hallelujahs to comfort food's holy grail, but sentimentality won't get you a crunchy, superbly seasoned bird. Our guide to the right ingredients, technique, and tools will. So put on your apron, grab a cast-iron skillet and a cold one (lemonade, sweet tea, beer-your call), and let's start frying.

1. The Bird: Think Smaller
Fried chicken was traditionally a spring dish in the South, and the young chickens used were dainty compared with today's hefty birds. To approximate those pared-down poultry, cut a three- to four-pounder into ten pieces, or use the equivalent weight in thighs, drumsticks, and breasts. (If you fry anything larger than four pounds, the crust will burn before the meat has cooked through.) Promote even cooking by halving the breasts, then cutting them crosswise. Antibiotic- and hormone-free or organic chickens are worth the expense. It's not like frying is an everyday affair, so start with a good bird.

2. The Rub: Keep It Kosher
When it comes to seasoning your bird, Linton Hopkins, chef at Atlanta's Restaurant Eugene, says to break with tradition and forget about the buttermilk brine: "The danger of brining in buttermilk is that you never get the skin crisp enough." Embrace the overnight dry rub instead. Kosher salt is the key: It keeps the meat juicy and carries the flavors of the spices to the bone. Our rub recipe goes spice-rack retro and calls for onion and garlic powders, which give the chicken an almost bacony meatiness.

3. The Dredge: Do Not Double Dip!
Now that the interior of your bird is seasoned, it's time to address the surface. A good wash and dredge--that marriage of wet and dry ingredients--should complement, not bury, the skin. The loose buttermilk-egg wash imparts rich color and encourages the flour mixture to cling. A single dip accentuates the skin's texture as the fat renders and the skin becomes crackling. This thin shell will fry up as a delicate layer: No fried chicken should suffer the indignity of a bulky overcoat with padded shoulders.

1) Let the seasoned chicken come to room temperature. It won't cool the oil as much when it hits the skillet, and it will cook more evenly. Meanwhile, set up your dredging station from left to right.

2) A quick dip into buttermilk and egg sets up the chicken for a golden, craggy crust. Designate one hand as your wet-dip hand so you don't turn yourself into a papier-mâché project.

3) Using your dry hand, roll the chicken pieces in a blend of flour and cornstarch (the latter helps the flour adhere and promotes a good crust), then knock off any excess by tapping the chicken against the edge of the dish. "You want a rumor of flour," says Scott Peacock, former chef of Decatur, Georgia's Watershed restaurant and co-author with the late Edna Lewis of The Gift of Southern Cooking.

4) Gently lower the pieces into 350° oil.

4. The Fat: Solve the Peanut Riddle
Vegetable oil and shortening work just fine, but we love peanut oil, and we're not alone. Dense, with a slightly earthy flavor and a high smoke point, peanut oil is "the lard of oils," says Scott Peacock. Frying in peanut oil produces a lovely, mahogany-brown crust.

Careful frying in shallow oil will render the fat from the skin, resulting in a coveted crust. But an excess of oil that remains while the chicken cools can translate to a greasy finish. The solution? Use tongs to lift each piece out of the oil and hold it at an angle for a good three seconds while the fat drips back into the pan. Transfer it to a rack set inside a rimmed baking sheet so air can circulate and keep it from getting soggy. Let cool for at least 10 minutes before digging in. Finally, if you don't have a deep-fry thermometer, don't worry. The oil will shimmer slightly when it's hot enough, and a piece of bread should bubble on contact and brown quickly.

5. The Skillet: Cast a Little Black Magic
A cast-iron skillet--inexpensive and basically indestructible--is the prized frying vessel for a reason. It retains heat better than most pans, which helps regulate the oil temperature and ensures even frying. If you don't own one already, this recipe should provide ample motivation.

6. The Finish: Give 'Em More to Love
This chicken doesn't need any embellishments, but these sure won't hurt.

Rosemary Honey
Tie 3 rosemary sprigs together with kitchen twine and use as a brush to slather this fragrant honey over everything from biscuits to chicken.

Bring 1/2 cup honey, 1 Tbsp. unsalted butter, 1 rosemary sprig, and a pinch each of salt and pepper to a simmer in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Remove from heat and let steep for 30 minutes before serving. Dip the rosemary brush into the honey and use to drizzle over the chicken.

Sichuan-Spiced Dipping Salt
A little of this Chinese-style spiced salt goes a long way. Serve it in small bowls for dipping, or sprinkle it over fried chicken.

Combine 2 Tbsp. each of Sichuan peppercorns, cumin seeds, and kosher salt in a small skillet over medium heat. Heat, stirring often, until spices are toasted and very fragrant, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a bowl; let cool. Finely grind mixture in a spice mill or in a mortar with a pestle.

Related: Bon Appetit's Favorite Chili Recipes

Pepper Vinegar
Southern cooks use their chile-infused vinegar to add a tart, floral kick to dishes like chicken or greens. You can also use it to wake up salad dressings. Customize it by adding bourbon or fruit liqueur and using your favorite chiles.

Combine 2 cups distilled white vinegar, 2 dried chiles de árbol, and 2 Scotch bonnet chiles (or any of your favorite dried or fresh chiles), quartered lengthwise, in a 1-pint jar. Seal and shake. Let sit at room temperature for 1 week before using.

A Couple Extras:

Your No-Fuss Fried Chicken Toolbox
Bowl: Choose one large enough to hold all the chicken pieces and that has room for tossing with the spice rub. An airtight container works, too.

Tongs: Long-handled tongs give you the reach you need to turn the chicken pieces as they cook. Frequent flipping encourages even browning.

Skillet: A 10"-12" cast-iron pan is just right for this recipe. If cooking more than one bird, use the same pan and work in several batches.

Thermometer: Take the guesswork out of frying with a deep-fry thermometer. The chicken will cool the oil; adjust the flame as needed.

Rack & Pan: Wire cooling racks aren't just for cookies. The rack allows air to move around the pieces as they cool. The sheet pan catches any drips.

Leftover Chicken? It May Be Even Better Than the Real Thing
Cold fried chicken is more than a slice of pizza you found in the fridge: It's a dish unto itself. Growing up, all of the chicken I ate at Southern picnics, tailgates, and church potlucks taught me how to read a drumstick.

I learned that a recipe's merit shouldn't be judged by how the chicken is right out of the skillet but by how it tastes the next day, after time spent cooling. Is the meat still juicy and flavorful? Is the crust fused to the skin, yielding the slightest crunch and toothsome tug? Was the grease drained properly? Answer yes to all, and you've done good.





THREE SURPRISING REASONS TO GIVE UP SODA - YAHOO NEWS 1-31-12

America has a drinking problem. No, not booze. I'm talking about soft drinks. According to the Beverage Marketing Corporation, the average American guzzles 44.7 gallons of the sweet stuff every year. Not sure what 44.7 gallons looks like? It's about what you'd need to fill a small kiddie pool.

But the truth is, you don't need me to tell you that soda isn't healthy. We all know that America’s drink of choice contributes to our country's ever-expanding obesity problem. But, as Rodale.com writer Leah Zerbe discovered, love handles are just the beginning. Read on for her report on three shocking soda facts that will have you saying “Just water, please” from now on.

And for more instant secrets that will keep you healthy and fit all year long, follow me right here on Twitter or sign up for our FREE Eat This, Not That! daily newsletter to lose weight without ever dieting again.

Shocking Soda Fact #1: Soda fattens up your organsA recent Danish study revealed that drinking non-diet soda leads to dramatic increases in dangerous hard-to-detect fats. Researchers asked participants to drink either regular soda, milk containing the same amount of calories as regular soda, diet cola, or water every day for six months. The results? Total fat mass remained the same across all beverage-consuming groups, but regular-soda drinkers experienced dramatic increases in harmful hidden fats, including liver fat and skeletal fat. The regular-soda group also experienced an 11 percent increase in cholesterol compared to the other groups! And don’t think switching to diet varieties will save you from harm: Artificial sweeteners and food dyes have been linked to brain cell damage and hyperactivity, and research has shown that people who drink diet soda have a higher risk of developing diabetes.

Read out about the 7 biggest food label lies.

FIX IT WITH FOOD: The average American drinks 450 calories a day. By switching to water as your go-to beverage, you'll make room in your diet for these 40 Foods with Superpowers—foods that, even in moderation, can strengthen your heart, fortify your bones, and boost your metabolism so you can lose weight more quickly.

Shocking Soda Fact #2: Soda contains flame retardantsSome popular soda brands, including Mountain Dew, use brominated vegetable oil—a toxic flame retardant—to keep the artificial flavoring from separating from the rest of the liquid. This hazardous ingredient—sometimes listed as BVO on soda and sports drinks—can cause bromide poisoning symptoms like skin lesions and memory loss, as well as nerve disorders. If that’s not a good enough reason not to “Do the Dew,” I don’t know what is. (We reveal more insidious ingredients hiding onsupermarket shelves in the 15 Scariest Food Additives).

Shocking Soda Fact #3: Drinking soda makes you a lab rat Many American soda brands are sweetened with high-fructose corn syrup, a heart-harming man-made compound derived mainly from genetically engineered corn. The problem? Genetically engineered ingredients have only been in our food chain since the 1990s, and we don't know their long-term health impacts because the corporations that developed the crops never had to test them for long-term safety. Case in point: Some recent findings suggest that genetically engineered crops are linked to digestive tract damage, accelerated aging, and even infertility!

3-29-12 KANSAS' DANNY MANNING NEW COACH AT TULSA

NEW ORLEANS (AP)—Danny Manning has agreed to become the head coach at Tulsa, the second assistant from Kansas coach Bill Self’s staff to announce their departure during the week of the Final Four.

Manning will help lead the Jayhawks in New Orleans before taking over at Tulsa, where Self once served as head coach. Kansas plays Ohio State in the national semifinals Saturday night.

“Right now my focus is on Kansas and its participation in the Final Four,” Manning said in a statement released by Tulsa on Thursday. “We’ve worked extremely hard to get to this point and we want to keep it going for another few days.”

AdChoices

Tulsa officials are planning an introductory news conference for next week.

Manning’s move comes on the heels of Barry Hinson’s decision to take over the head job at Southern Illinois on Wednesday. Hinson had served the past two years as the director of basketball operations at Kansas. He also plans to be with the Jayhawks in New Orleans.

“Danny Manning is one of the most accomplished, humble people you’ll ever meet,” Self said in a statement. “He’s done more in his life through the athletic world than just about anybody, but you would never know it in visiting with him as he never ever talks about himself.

“He’s been around basketball his whole life, played for so many coaches, been able to steal from everybody and has developed a vast knowledge that will certainly play a huge role in his success as a head coach,” Self said. “He will lead Tulsa to great heights athletically and be competing for championships in a very short amount of time.”

Manning takes over for Doug Wojcik, who was fired by Tulsa on March 11 after four 20-win seasons and three postseason appearances, though none in the NCAA tournament. Tulsa hasn’t made the field since 2003, the second of back-to-back trips to the second round.

The Golden Hurricane is even further removed from the heights it reached under Self, who was coach from 1997-2000 and led the program to a 32-5 record and regional final in 1998.

Still, Manning takes over a program on solid footing.

The Golden Hurricane have had six straight winning seasons, four of them of at least 20 wins, including back-to-back 25-win campaigns that included trips to the CBI and NIT. Tulsa went 17-14 this past season, losing in triple-overtime to Marshall in the Conference USA tournament.

Tulsa returns four of its five leading scorers next season, including dynamic guard Jordan Clarkson, who averaged better than 16 points during his sophomore year.

“We are extremely excited to have Danny,” Tulsa athletic director Ross Parmley said. “His 15 years in the NBA combined with the last nine years under one of the best coaches in the country, have helped mold him into a great teacher and coach of basketball. He most definitely brings the excitement, the style of basketball and character that we were looking for in our head coach.”

Few players are so closely connected to a school as Manning to Kansas.

The program’s all-time leading scorer and rebounder, he remains ninth on the NCAA’s career scoring list with 2,951 points. Manning was a consensus All-American in 1987 and ’88, and led the Jayhawks—the team coined “Danny and the Miracles”—to the 1988 NCAA championship.

He was the Big 8’s player of the year three consecutive seasons.

Manning became the top pick in the 1988 draft and averaged 14 points over 15 seasons with seven NBA franchises. He returned to Kansas upon his retirement from playing, and became one of the most visible assistants at a program that has had John Calipari, Kevin Stallings, Tim Jankovich and other future head coaches sitting on its bench.

Manning, who is notoriously media shy, has earned a reputation as a solid recruiter and one of the elite coaches of big men. Under his tutelage, Thomas Robinson went from backup forward to a first-team All-American, and Jeff Withey from the bench to one of the Big 12’s top defenders.

Manning has also worked with future NBA players Wayne Simien, Julian Wright, Darrell Arthur, Darnell Jackson, Cole Aldrich, Marcus Morris and Markieff Morris.

“I’m excited and looking forward to being the head basketball coach at The University of Tulsa,” Manning said. “I’d also like to thank Coach Self for giving me the chance to be a part of his staff for the past nine years. I have learned a tremendous amount about the game and the profession from him and all of the members of his staff.”





THE MOON DECIDES WHEN EASTER IS BETWEEN MARCH 19 AND APRIL 22

..Friday (April 6) brings us the first full moon of the new spring season.

The official moment that the moon turns full is 19:19 UT, or 3:19 p.m. EDT.

Traditionally, the April full moon is known as "the Pink Moon," supposedly as a tribute to the grass pink or wild ground phlox, considered one of the earliest widespread flowers of the spring. Other monikers include the Full Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon and, among coastal Native American tribes, the Full Fish Moon, for when the shad came upstream to spawn.

(Traditional names for the full moons of the year are found in some publications, such as the Farmers' Almanac. We also published the complete list of full moon names here on SPACE.com. The origins of these names have been traced back to Native America, though they may also have evolved from old England or, as Guy Ottewell, editor of the annual publication Astronomical Calendar, suggests, "writer's fancy.")

The first full moon of spring is usually designated as the Paschal Full Moon or the Paschal Term. Traditionally, Easter is observed on the Sunday after the Paschal Full Moon. If the Paschal Moon occurs on a Sunday, Easter is the following Sunday. [Photos: Full Moon Captivates Skywatchers in February 2012]

Following these rules, we find that the date of Easter can fall as early as March 22 and as late as April 25. Pope Gregory XIII decreed this in 1582 as part of the Gregorian calendar. So according to the current ecclesiastical rules, Easter Sunday in 2012 is to be celebrated April 8.

Interestingly, these rules also state that the vernal equinox is fixed on March 21, despite the fact that from the years 2008 through 2101, at European longitudes it actually will occur no later than March 20.

Adding additional confusion is that there is also an "ecclesiastical" full moon, determined from ecclesiastical tables, whose date does not necessarily coincide with the "astronomical" full moon, which is based solely on astronomical calculations. In 1981, for example, the full moon occurred on Sunday, April 19, so Easter should have occurred on the following Sunday, April 26. But based on the ecclesiastical full moon, it occurred on the same day of the astronomical full moon, April 19!

Hence, there can sometimes be discrepancies between the ecclesiastical and astronomical versions for dating Easter. In the year 2038, for instance, the equinox will fall on March 20, with a full moon the next day, so astronomically speaking, Easter should fall on March 28 of that year. In reality, however, as mandated by the rules of the church, Easter 2038 will be observed as late as it can possibly come, on April 25.

So in practice, the date of Easter is determined not from astronomical computations but rather from other formulae such Golden Numbers.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, a proposal to change Easter to a fixed holiday rather than a movable one has been widely circulated, and in 1963 the Second Vatican Council said it would agree, provided a consensus could be reached among Christian churches. The second Sunday in April has been suggested as the most likely date. That, incidentally, works outs rather nicely this year.

Harvest moon effect, in reverse

The full moon occurring nearest to the autumnal equinox is traditionally called the Harvest Moon. What sets the Harvest Moon apart from the others is that instead of rising at its normal average of 50 minutes later each day, it seems to rise at nearly the same time for several nights.

In direct contrast to the Harvest Full Moon, the Paschal Full Moon appears to rise considerably later each night. Below we've provided some examples for 10 North American cities.

Although normally the moon rises about 50 minutes later each night, over this three-night interval for our relatively small sampling we can see that the rising of the moon comes, on the average, just over 76 minutes later each night. A quick study of the table shows that the night-to-night difference is greatest for the more northerly locations. (Edmonton, located at latitude 53.6ºN, sees moonrise come an average of 88minutes later.) Meanwhile, the difference is less at southerly locations. (In Miami, located at latitude 26ºN, the average difference is about 67 minutes.)

The reason for this seasonal circumstance is that the moon appears to move along the ecliptic (the path the sun takes across the sky), and at this time of year when rising, the ecliptic makes its largest angle with respect to the horizon for those living in the Northern Hemisphere.

In contrast, for those living in the Southern Hemisphere, the ecliptic at this time of year appears to stand at a more oblique angle to the eastern horizon. As such, the difference for the time of moonrise is noticeably less than the average of 50 minutes per night. In Sydney, Australia, for instance, the night-to-night difference amounts to just 40 minutes.

10-10-12 article on Yahoo

I am an RN who has worked for over 40 years in hospitals, including 20 years in ICU, and in the ER before that. Prior to that, I was a Combat Medic in Vietnam. So, I can tell you that I have seen a LOT of death and near-death experiences in my life. A LOT! I've seen patients in deep comas suddenly wake up, telling me it's so beautiful, and then falling back into death. I've had other patients tell me that Jesus had come for them, and they have to go now... and then die! I've had patients whose hearts stopped, and who had to be aggressively resuscitated to bring them back, only to have them tell me that they had been in heaven and had met all their family that had preceded them in death years earlier. I've seen patients in comas suddenly sit up and say, "Mother? I'm coming, Mother." And then die. I've had patients call me to the room and said that their roommate just died, but they had come back briefly to tell them to tell their families that they loved them, and then vanish. The experiences are too common to simply blow them off. Not ALL patients do this, and I did have ONE guy who "died," who we then resuscitated, and he told me that while he was clinically dead, the experience was HORRIBLE, that he had seen the Devil and Hell, and from now on he intended to never miss a day of church, ever. MOST RN's who have worked in hospitals for many years can tell you similar stories. I had a nurse-friend who was making her rounds about 3 AM, and walked into this guy's room and found him dead in bed. But, suddenly she heard his voice telling her, "I'm in heaven now." Now, you Doubting Thomases can pooh-pooh these experiences all you want, that's fine with me. But I've seen enough of them to be satisfied that there is, indeed, an afterlife. Call it heaven, call it whatever name you wish. But I'm convinced it's there. As for patients who die and DON'T have these experiences, maybe they didn't go to heaven? All I know is, i know where I want to go! You can go wherever you want. It's fine by me. 181 Replies .



10 EASY WAYS TO MATER GRILLING - YAHOO 5-26-12 HOMEMADE POTATOE CHIPS ON BOTTOM

Steven Raichlen, host of TV's Barbecue University, has written dozens of books on grilling. Here, he distills a library of advice into 10 simple tips to mastering the grill.

Plus: Quick Grilling Recipes

1. Grill over wood
Forget about the gas-versus-charcoal debate: Wood is the only fuel that adds real flavor to food. If possible, use whole hardwood logs in a wood-burning grill. The next best option is to burn hardwood chunks in a regular grill. (Light them in a chimney starter as you would charcoal.) As a last resort, toss some wood chips onto the coals of your charcoal grill--you use hardwood charcoal, right?--or in the smoker box of your gas grill just before you begin grilling.

2. Keep your cool
You don't need to bring steaks to room temperature before grilling: There's no appreciable difference in cooking time. Steak houses keep meat refrigerated until they're ready to cook it--for reasons of convenience and food safety--and so should you.

3. Line it up
Align the food on your grill in a neat row with soldierly precision. This helps you keep track of which foods went on the fire first, so you can turn them and take them off in order. Plus it looks more professional--and looking professional is half the battle.

4. Flip just once
You can't get killer grill marks (the signature of master grillmanship) or accurately gauge cooking time if you're compulsively turning over your steak every 10 seconds. To lay on a handsome set of crosshatches, rotate the steak 90 degrees after a couple of minutes of grilling.

5. Season before grilling
You might have heard that salt "bleeds" the juices out of raw meat: It doesn't. Instead, it helps steaks form a savory crust as they cook. Just before putting the steaks on the grill, sprinkle on a generous amount of coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper.

6. Keep the grate hot, clean and oiled
This is the grill master's mantra. Following it will prevent food from sticking and give it excellent grill marks. Before grilling, scrub the hot grate with a wire brush, then rub it with a tightly folded paper towel dipped in oil. Scrub the grate again when you're finished cooking.

7. Grill your veggies
The dry heat of a grill intensifies a vegetable's natural sweetness. Grill tender, watery vegetables, such as bell peppers and onions, directly over the coals. Grill dense or starchy vegetables, such as sliced potatoes and eggplant, using indirect heat, as far away from the coals as possible.

8. Grip, don't stab
Use a pair of tongs--not a barbecue fork or, worse, a knife--to turn meat or move it around on the grill. Forks and knives poke holes in the meat that can allow precious juices to drain out. If you must cut and peek to check doneness, make a small slit with a knife.

9. Know when it's done
For steaks, chops and chicken, poke the meat with your finger: If it feels soft and squishy, it's rare; yielding, medium-rare; only slightly yielding, medium; firm and springy, well-done. For large cuts of meat, use an instant-read meat thermometer (even barbecue pros use them). Just don't let it touch any bones, or you'll get a false reading.

10. Let it rest
When you grill a piece of meat, its muscle fibers contract and drive the juices to the center of the cut. Meat served right off the grill will taste tough and dry, but a post-grill rest allows the muscle fibers to reabsorb the juices, resulting in a tender and succulent cut. Larger pieces of meat, like leg of lamb and pork shoulder, need to rest longer than steaks and chops--for approximately 15 minutes.

HOMEMADE POTATOE CHIPS

Homemade Potato Chips
Makes 1 large bowl of chips

3 medium russet potatoes
Oil baking spray
Sea salt or Baked Potato Chip seasoning, to taste

1. Slice the potatoes into very, very thin rounds using a porcelain slicer or mandoline (always use the guard!). I use the 1.3mm setting. Place the slices in a large bowl. Cover with cold water, swish and then drain.

2. Place the slices in a single layer on a towel, and then roll it up to lightly dry them. Keep the slices rolled up in the towel as you cook off batches to keep them from oxidizing and turning brown.

3. To microwave your chips, spray the potato slices with an oil baking spray and place in a single layer on a microwave safe plate (sprayed with a bit more baking spray). Cook on full power for 1 to 2 minutes. You'll likely need to do this in many small batches. Be careful when you remove the plate because it will be very hot.

4. To fry the chips, heat a pot of safflower or canola oil to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C), and fry the dried potato slices in small batches. Be careful not to over fill the pot, or your chips will stick together and have soggy spots. Fry for just a minute or two, flipping once, until they are a light golden brown and the oil bubbling calms. If there is still frantic bubbling going on, there is still moisture in the chips, and they will be soggy. Remove the chips with a slotted spoon, and place on a wire rack to drain.

4. Toss your crisp chips into a large bowl and sprinkle with salt or your seasoning, swirling and flipping to coat.

More Articles »I have a product I want to sell you, and I call it AirFlow 3000. It's a ventilation system that pumps air into your house. AirFlow 3000 air comes in an elegantly packaged delivery system that will lend you and your family style and sophistication. And it’s available for just $5 per day, per person! Interested?

Well, just to be clear: AirFlow 3000 is 100 percent identical to the air outside. It contains all the same pollutants and funky odors, and it doesn't do anything special for your health. You’re really just paying for the packaging, because you’re already breathing the exact same air for free. Still interested?

Of course you aren't. But the AirFlow 3000 pitch is essentially the same pitch water bottlers are making right now. The difference is they're not so straightforward about their wares. They're not selling water, they're selling "mineral" and "spring" water. And we're buying. The average American chugs nearly 30 gallons of bottled water a year, making it the second-most consumed commercial beverage in the United States. (Sadly, soda is the first.) But, as it turns out, bottled water is no more pure than the federally regulated—and virtually free—H2O that comes out of the tap.

Below, I shed some light on what’s really going on behind the fancy names and pristine labels of your favorite bottled water brands. It's time to rethink your relationship with water.

BURN FAT ALL DAY LONG! To stay on top of the latest and greatest weight loss trends, sign up for our FREE Eat This, Not That! daily newsletter and be sure to follow me on Twitter. You’ll flatten your belly and improve your health—without ever dieting.

Bottled-Water Secret #1: It doesn’t taste any better In a 2010 study published in the Journal of Sensory Studies, researchers asked people to rate the taste of six bottled mineral waters and six types of tap water. They found that, overall, bottled water didn’t perform any better than the stuff from the tap. The reason: It’s mineral concentration, not "water purity," that influences flavor. The study’s participants preferred water with medium mineralization, which they described as “tasteless” and “cooler,” but whether it came from a bottle or the tap made little difference. What is clear: By filling your belly, drinking water before meals can help you lose a ton of weight. In fact, it's one of the 20 Habits Skinny People Live By.


Bottled-Water Secret #2: It’s not necessarily pure
The Natural Resources Defense Council recently tested 1,000 bottles of water and discovered that about 22 percent of the brands in the study contained chemical contaminants at levels above state health limits. And in 2011, California State University researchers tested six brands of bottled water and found that while none contained more than the legal level of contaminates, all six exceeded California public health goals for arsenic. There’s also substantial research showing that when certain plastic bottles are heated at high temperatures, chemicals from the plastic can leach into a container’s contents (a good reason not to store cases of water in the garage this summer). The takeaway: Don’t let label jargon like “pure” and “natural” fool you. Unlike bottled water, tap water is subject to strict federal, state, and local guidelines, making it a safer beverage choice.

Bottled-Water Secret #3: It may be glorified tap water Exotic names and labels conjure up images of tropical waterfalls and mountaintop springs, but in reality, roughly 25 percent of all bottled water comes from municipal water sources. Coca-Cola’s Dasani, for example, is nothing but purified tap water with added minerals. And Pepsi’s Aquafina? Another bottle of city water. I don’t know about you, but if I’m going to be drinking tap water anyway, I’d rather save some cash and drink the free version.

Bottled-Water Secret #4: It’s hurting our planet
Most water bottles are made of a plastic called polyethylene terepthalate, or PET. There are two problems with PET bottles. Problem 1: They take a boatload of crude oil to produce. University of Louisville researchers estimate that around 17 million barrels of oil are used each year to produce PET water bottles—a major reason why bottled water costs roughly four times as much as gasoline. Problem 2: We’re chucking our water bottles in the trash, instead of the recycling bin. According to the Container Recycling Institute, nearly 90 percent of the 30 billion PET water bottles we buy annually end up in landfills—a huge problem when you consider that PET bottles take from 400 to 1,000 years to decompose. The bottom line: We should all take a cue from environmentally conscious activists like the folks at the University of Vermont—which recently banned bottled-water sales on campus—and opt for the tap whenever possible.


DRINK DISASTERS: Bottled water isn’t the only dubious drink you have to watch out for. Many bottled beverages pack enough sugar and calories to foil your get-fit plans in one fell sip. Protect yourself by avoiding the 11 Worst Beverages in the Supermarket!





TO COMBAT VOTER FRAUD FROM YAHOO 11-6-12

To combat Voter fraud:
You’ve cast your vote page by page. You get to the summary of all your votes at the end of the electronic voting process. BUT YOU SEE THAT THE MACHINE HAS FLIPPED YOUR VOTES OR RECORDED THE WRONG VOTES!!!
1. Do not panic; it happens, especially if you’ve voted quickly (like typing too fast on Facebook).
2. Call for one of the poll workers to come over because your machine has made an error.
3. Show the poll worker what’s happened.
4. The poll worker will ask you to try again to see if the machine repeats the error.
5. If it does NOT repeat the error, press the “cast ballot” button and finish voting.
6. If it DOES repeat the error, insist on having the poll supervisor come over. With the original poll worker
helper present explain what’s happened. Tell the supervisor you want this machine taken offline and you want to
vote on a machine that’s working properly.
7. The poll supervisor will have to cancel your voting “booth” before doing anything else.
8. Then the supervisor will take the machine offline (disconnect it from the daisy chain of machines).
9. The poll supervisor will re-issue the code you need to vote.
10. Go through the process again.
DO NOT take a photo of the machine or of anything in the polling area. In almost every state this is ILLEGAL
and can get you thrown out of the poll without being able to vote.
If the poll supervisor DOES NOT follow the above steps, insist that he/she call the county/municipal election
authority and let you speak with them. (That’s your right as a voter.)
Get them to direct the poll supervisor to take the correct actions. If they won’t help, ask for the toll free number
to your state Secretary of State. Call them and ask them to resolve the problem.
If they won’t help call 855-444-6100. That’s the True the Vote hotline. But DON’T CALL that line until
AFTER you’ve tried the county/municipal authority AND the Secretary of State. We have lawyers standing by
to help.
Please only call if YOU are the person to whom this happens. NOBODY can take 2nd or 3rd hand reports and
take action.
Pass it on...thank you




GRAPEFRUIT CAN INTERACT WITH 85 DRUGS CAUSING DEADLY RESULTS - YAHOO NEWS 11-27-12

More Articles »The number of common prescription drugs that can interact with grapefruit—with potentially serious or even fatal results—is climbing sharply, according to a new comprehensive review published in Canadian Medical Association Journal.

Researchers from Western University report that grapefruit juice can interact with more than 85 oral medications, including certain cholesterol-lowering statins, cancer medications, antibiotics, anti-depressants, pain medications, heart drugs and other widely used pills.

"What I've noticed over the last four years is really quite a disturbing trend, and that is the increase in the number of drugs that can produce not only adverse reactions but extraordinarily serious adverse drug reactions," lead researcher David Bailey, a clinical pharmacologist at the Lawson Health Research Institute, told CBC News.

Learn About More Dangerous Drug and Food Interactions

Potentially Fatal Interactions
Between 2008 and 2012, the number of drugs with the potential to cause the most dangerous interactions, including acute kidney or respiratory failure, GI bleeding, has jumped from 17 to 44, says Bailey, “Half of these drugs actually can cause sudden death,” if taken within hours of drinking grapefruit juice (or eating the fruit.)

Although the tart citrus can interact with more than 85 drugs, some interactions are unlikely to cause serious harm. Here’s a closer look at the research and what you need to know to protect your health. A number of other foods, including deli meat, milk and even candy, can also react adversely with certain drugs.

5 Hidden Dangers in Your Home

Why Are Grapefruit-Drug Interactions So Dangerous?
Twenty years ago, the same team of researchers discovered that grapefruit disrupts the body’s metabolism of certain drugs. The tart citrus contains compounds called furanocoumarins that interfere with enzymes that break down the drugs in the gut.

That means more of the drug stays in your body, which could cause it to build up to toxic or even lethal levels. The same compounds are also found in other citrus fruits, including Seville oranges (the kind used in marmalade), limes and pomelos, the study reports, but not in regular oranges.

These adverse reactions can occur many hours after someone consumes grapefruit or its juice—and as little as one glass of grapefruit juice can be enough to trigger dangerous interactions, the researchers report.

Which Drugs Interact with Grapefruit?
All of the drugs cited in the review are taken orally and share certain characteristics. They have limited “bioavailability,” meaning that, normally, only small amounts of the drug circulate in the bloodstream. And they all interact in the gut with an enzyme called CYP3A4.

Although this information is included in medication packet inserts, many people, including doctors, aren’t aware of this hazard, the review reported. Drugs with the potential to interact with grapefruit include the following:

•statins (Zocor, Lipitor)
•calcium channel blockers (Procardia, Nimotop, Sular)
And certain medications for the following conditions:

•anxiety (BuSpar)
•heart arrhythmias (Cordarone)
•depression (Zoloft)
•seizures (Tegretol, Carbatrol)
•malaria (quinine)
•insomnia (Halcion)
The Most Addictive Prescription Drugs on The Market

What Kinds of Interactions Can Occur?
One of the most dangerous medications—if combined with whole grapefruit, concentrate, or fresh juice—is the heart drug Multaq (dronedarone). This interaction can trigger a rare type of ventricular tachycardia, an extremely rapid heart arrhythmia, the researchers report.

Mixing the citrus fruit with the prescription painkiller oxycodone can lead to severe breathing problems, while combining grapefruit and the statin medication Zocor (simvastatin) may spark a potentially life-threatening complication called rhabdomyolysis, in which breakdown of muscle fibers can result in kidney damage of failure.

Which Other Foods Interact With Medication?
Among the other common foods that affect absorption or effects of medication are:

Black licorice. Many forms of black licorice (used to flavor foods and candy) contain a sweet substance called glycyrrhizin, which can increase the toxicity of certain drugs or worsen side effects.

Drugs it can interact with: University of Maryland warns that if you’re taking Lanoxin (a treatment for heart failure and irregular heartbeats), licorice can dangerously raise the risk of toxic side effects. It can also lower the effectiveness of ACE inhibitors and diuretics used to regulate blood pressure, may increase adverse effects from insulin, and boosts the potency of corticosteroids. There have also been reports of women on birth control pills developing high blood pressure and low potassium levels after eating licorice.

Leafy green vegetables. Kale, spinach, Brussels sprouts, and cabbage can make medication that combats blood clots less effective. That’s because these foods are high in vitamin K, a crucial nutrient for clot formation, while the goal of anticoagulant therapy is to slow down production of vitamin K to reduce clot risk. In effect, these foods counteract the drug’s desired effect.

Drugs these foods can interact with: Warfarin (Coumadin). If you take this drug, it’s not necessary to avoid leafy greens—instead doctors advise eating a consistent amount week to week, so your dose of warfarin can be calibrated accordingly.

Milk. Milk and calcium supplements can interfere with absorption of certain infection-fighting drugs, if taken together. The best solution is to wait a few hours after taking these drugs before drinking milk, popping a calcium supplement, or taking antacids (which can also contain calcium).

Drugs it can interact with: Tetracycline and fluoroquinolones (a class of antibiotics that includes Cipro, Levaquin and Avelox).

Alcohol. Mixing alcohol with certain medications—including both prescription and over-the-counter drugs—can have a wide range of harmful effects, from nausea and vomiting to drowsiness (increasing risk for car accidents), internal bleeding, liver damage, sudden changes in blood pressure, impaired breathing, and loss of coordination, warns National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA).

Drugs it can interact with: Painkillers, OTC cold, cough, flu and allergy remedies statins, drugs for angina (Isodil), anxiety and epilepsy (Ativan, Klonopin, Xanax,), arthritis (Celebrex, Voltaren), depression (Celexa, Effexor, Lexapro), diabetes (Glucophage, Orinase), enlarged prostate, high blood pressure, infections and other conditions. NIAAA offers a detailed list of drugs that don’t mix with alcohol.

Aged, cured or pickled foods. Aged cheeses like cheddar or Swiss, cured meats, and sauerkraut contain tyramine, an amino acid that sparks one of the most feared drug-food interactions when combined with certain antidepressants. The mixture can cause facial flushing, sweating, sudden rise in blood pressure, irregular heartbeats and brain hemorrhage. Tyramine is also found in certain types of wine, such as Chianti, sherry and Riesling.

Drugs it can interact with: Monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOI) for depression, and the antibiotics Zyvox and isoniazid.

Chocolate. The caffeine in chocolate (and other caffeinated foods) can trigger severe jitters or tremors when combined with certain meds, and packs a double whammy by irritating the stomach lining, amplifying the side effects of drugs likely to cause nausea. Chocolate also contains some tryamine, the culprit in a food-drug interaction that killed a University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics patient.

Drugs it can interact with: MAO inhibitors for depression, some antibiotics, narcotic painkillers like Vicodin and Percoset, asthma medications, and stimulants, such as Ritalin.

Avoiding food-drug interactions
The best ways to protect yourself is to check medication package inserts for interaction warnings and ask your doctor and pharmacist if they advise any dietary restrictions. Drugs.com offers an online interaction checker for both interactions with other drugs and with food.

Explore and compare medications NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Although some Americans are getting more of beneficial treatments that were underused in the past, including drugs for heart disease, others are still being overtested or overtreated for a range of conditions, according to a new study.

Researchers found U.S. doctors' offices made progress on six of nine "quality indicators" for recommended and underused therapies but only scaled back on two of 11 unnecessary and potentially harmful health services.

Those findings reflect a growing concern over skyrocketing health care costs - and the realization that doctors and hospitals are going to have to find places where services can be scaled back.

"We all know that we need to do something about it, and one component of the high health care costs is the overuse and misuse of therapies and interventions," said Dr. Amir Qaseem, director of clinical policy at the American College of Physicians.

It's not about getting rid of services that are too expensive, he told Reuters Health, but evaluating what current tests and treatments may offer little value for certain patients.

For example, two overuse indicators included in the new analysis are screening men age 75 and up for prostate cancer and screening women 75 and older for breast cancer.

"For men who are getting screened over the age of 75, the likely benefit doesn't happen within a patient's lifetime," Qaseem said, because prostate cancer is often very slow-growing. And that's assuming prostate specific antigen (PSA) tests are beneficial at all.

Regardless of a man's age, however, the tests can still lead to invasive biopsies that come with side effects such as a risk of incontinence and impotence.

"We really need to start looking at some of these services that may be harmful," added Qaseem, who wasn't involved in the new research.

The findings are based on nationally representative studies of adult care in outpatient offices, conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Data came from 79,083 office visits in 1998-1999 and 102,980 visits in 2008-2009.

During that span, the use of many recommended therapies improved. For example, 28 percent of people with coronary artery disease were given aspirin in 1998-1999, compared to almost 65 percent a decade later.

Likewise, the use of statins more than doubled in those same patients, from 27 percent to 59 percent. In people with diabetes, statin prescriptions increased from 12 percent to 36 percent.

However, there was little change in rates of unnecessary and overused services, including some types of cancer screening for older adults or x-rays and urine tests done as part of a general check-up.

Two of those overuse indicators improved: cervical cancer screening for women over 65 dropped from 3 percent to 2 percent, and unnecessary antibiotic prescribing for asthma flare-ups fell from 22 percent to 7 percent.

On the other hand, rates of prostate cancer screening for older men increased, from between 3 and 4 percent to almost 6 percent, according to findings published Monday in the Archives of Internal Medicine.

The lead author on the study from New York's Mount Sinai School of Medicine, Dr. Minal Kale, said the set of quality indicators her team used doesn't necessarily represent all tests and treatments provided in outpatient care.

And she added that the overuse of medical services is a complicated issue.

"Culturally, there's a lot of resistance to limiting access to health care services because it quickly becomes politicized," Kale told Reuters Health.

"The question about overuse really needs to come back to quality. It's about quality of the care that we're delivering to patients."

The goal, she said, is to "increase the value and the quality of our health care system while also paying attention to the costs."

DOCTORS ONLY WASH THEIR HANDS BETWEEN PATIENTS 10% OF THE TIME - THEY MAKE MORE MONEY THAT WAY & THEIR HANDS STAY BEAUTIFUL

The Easiest, Cheapest Way to Stay Healthy

Hand hygiene among doctors is even worse, with 73 percent of pediatric ICU physicians claiming that they soaped up between patients, but when the MDs were secretly observed, only 10 percent actually washed. If doctors and nurses were more diligent about hand hygiene, up to 80,000 Americans lives would be saved each year.

Experts caution patients to ask healthcare providers a simple question before any hands-on exam: “Did you wash your hands?” That’s important even if the provider is wearing gloves, reports Texas Health Resources Infection Control.

An easy action that takes just 20 seconds can cut your risk for catching a cold, flu or other contagious diseases by up to 51 percent, recent studies show. And if everyone made it a regular habit, one million deaths a year would be prevented, according to the Centers for Disease Control, which calls this habit the single most important way to avoid spreading infection.

Frequent hand washing with soap and water can save you money—and misery—by helping you avoid medical bills, missed workdays, or having to stay home with a sick child. And you’ll also protect your friends and family: A CDC survey found that 40 million Americans a year fall prey to illnesses spread by hands, which can harbor up to 500,000 bacteria per square centimeter.

The 11 Germiest Places in Your Home

Clean Hands Save Lives
Not only does lathering up protect you from respiratory illnesses like colds, but it also helps ward off more serious conditions, including hepatitis A, meningitis, and potentially life-threatening superbug infections, such as MRSA. Overall, 80 percent of all infectious diseases are spread by touch.

Here are just a few research findings that illustrate the protective power of clean hands:

•Kids who washed their hands four times a day had 25 percent fewer school absences due to contagious diseases and 57 percent fewer sick days due to GI bugs.
•When 40,000 Navy recruits were instructed to wash their hands five times a day, their rate of respiratory infections fell by 45 percent, according to a study published in American Journal of Preventive Medicine.
•A 2011 study found that when students disinfected their hands three times a day with ethanol gel sanitizer, there was a 66 percent drop in pupils who missed four or more days due to illness and a 20 percent rise in students with zero absences, compared to data from the previous year.
•Hand washing reduces risk for colds and other respiratory illnesses by 21 percent, according to the CDC.
•Washing with soap and water lowers risk for diarrhea and severe or fatal intestinal infections by up to 59 percent, a systematic review published in Lancet reported.
At-Home Remedies that Really Work

Our Dirty Little Secrets
Ninety-one percent of Americans say they wash their hands after using a public toilet, but an observational study conducted in the six US airports found that only 26 percent of men and 17 percent of women actually did. And here’s something to ponder before you shake someone’s hand during cold and flu season: A recent survey also found that only 24 percent of men and 39 percent of women always wash their hands after they cough or sneeze.

Hand hygiene among doctors is even worse, with 73 percent of pediatric ICU physicians claiming that they soaped up between patients, but when the MDs were secretly observed, only 10 percent actually washed. If doctors and nurses were more diligent about hand hygiene, up to 80,000 Americans lives would be saved each year.

Experts caution patients to ask healthcare providers a simple question before any hands-on exam: “Did you wash your hands?” That’s important even if the provider is wearing gloves, reports Texas Health Resources Infection Control.

When to Wash Away Germs
To stay healthy and avoid spreading germs to others, the CDC and other experts advise washing your hands before and after preparing food, before eating, after changing diapers or using the toilet, after sneezing, coughing or blowing your nose, after touching an animal, and after touching garbage.

Follow these simple steps:

•Wet your hands with clean, running water (warm or cold) and remove jewelry. A recent study compared bacteria counts on the hands of 50 healthcare workers who wore rings to 50 who didn’t. Hand washing lowered levels of staph bacteria by nearly 50 percent for those without rings, but only 29 percent among ring wearers.
•Lather up with soap. Avoid antibacterial products, which don’t work any better than regular soap, according to the Mayo Clinic, and can even lead to bacteria becoming resistant to that antimicrobial ingredient.
•Rub hands together for at least 20 seconds. To get the timing right, kids can recite the alphabet as they scrub. Pay equal attention to all surfaces of both hands: Research shows that righties don’t wash their right hand as carefully as the left, while the opposite is true for lefties. Fingernails and fingertips typically harbor the most microorganisms.
•Rinse thoroughly under running water—the force of the stream sweeps dirt and germs down the drain. And be sure to dry well, which helps rub away remaining microbes. A study published in Epidemiology and Infection found that when people touched someone else with freshly washed, but damp hands, they transferred a whopping 68,000 microorganisms, compared to just 140 when their hands were dry.
•The CDC says that while soap and water is best, hand sanitizers containing at least 60 percent alcohol can do in a pinch. However, they don’t eliminate all types of germs.

Discover Yahoo! With Your Friends.. close.. ... ..13 Ways to Get More Social Security

...AdChoices

...
The average monthly Social Security benefit for a retiree in 2013 is estimated at $1,261, according to the Social Security Administration. That’s just $15,132 a year – hardly enough to live on.



Hopefully when you reach retirement, you’ll have a nice nest egg to offset hurdles like vanishing pensions and unpredictable stock-market returns. But either way, there are certain actions you can take today to boost your Social Security payments during retirement – and they can add up to thousands of extra dollars in your golden years.

Here are 13 things you can think about today to increase your Social Security payments during retirement:

1. Work at least 35 years
Social Security benefits are calculated based on your 35 highest-earning working years. If you work fewer years, you’ll have years with zero income averaged in – which will lower your payout.

2. Ask for a raise
If you experience a jump in salary, you’ll likely boost your future earning potential and may see an increase in your Social Security payments down the road – since as we just explained, Social Security takes into account the 35 top-earning years of your career.

3. Take a second job
The same logic applies: If you earn more each year, you’ll likely increase the amount you get in Social Security when you retire.

4. Wait until full retirement age to claim Social Security
You can begin collecting Social Security benefits as early as age 62, but you might not want to: Your benefit will be reduced by 25 percent for life. To get your full payment, wait until you reach full retirement age – currently 66 for anyone born between 1943 and 1954. For those born between 1955 and 1959, the age gradually rises toward 67. For those born in 1960, it’s 67.

5. Better yet: Wait until age 70
If you can afford to wait until age 70 to claim Social Security benefits, it’ll pay off. Thanks to what the Social Security Administration calls “delayed retirement credits,” benefits increase 8 percent each year you delay tapping into Social Security – up till age 70. So waiting until you reach 70 means about a third more income for life.

When considering this strategy, it’s particularly beneficial for the higher-earning spouse in a marriage to hold out until age 70 to increase the total benefits the couple will receive throughout their lifetime. In the event that the spouse with the higher benefit passes away, the surviving spouse will receive the higher payment.

If you took benefits early and regret the move, it might not be too late to fix it. You may be able to repay all the benefits you received so far and restart them at a higher level based on your age. But this policy isn’t as flexible as it used to be: For more details, check out this page on the SSA site.

6. Use online tools
If you’re unsure about the best time to claim benefits based on your individual budget, health, life expectancy, or other factors, use online resources to help you decide. A good place to start is SocialSecurity.gov/MyStatement, where you’ll get your personalized statement. This estimates what your benefits will be at age 62, at full retirement age, or at age 70.

Once you get estimates for both you and, if applicable, your spouse, there are other online tools that compare your benefits under various scenarios to help you determine the best claiming strategy. Consider AARP’s Social Security Benefits Calculator or Analyze Now’s “Strategic Social Security Planner.”

7. Claim spousal benefits
If you’re married, you have a choice: You can either take the benefit based on your work history, or half your spouse’s benefit. So if your spouse earned a lot more than you did, and has a higher benefit as a result, compare and see which will pay the most.

You can also claim Social Security benefits based on an ex-spouse’s work record if you were married for at least 10 years. Doing so doesn’t reduce their check or otherwise impact them. In fact, they’ll never know you applied.

8. Taking early retirement? Beware of outside income
If you start taking benefits before reaching your full retirement age, employment elsewhere can reduce your Social Security checks.

For example, say you started taking Social Security in 2012 at age 62 and your full retirement age is 66. For 2012, your benefit would be reduced by $1 for every $2 you earned in gross wages or net self-employment income above $14,640.

If 2012 was the year you reached full retirement age, you could have earned up to $38,880 prior to the month you turned 66. More than that and your benefit would be reduced by $1 for every $3 you earned.

After you reach full retirement age, you get your full benefit no matter how much you earn.

9. Claim twice
A dual-income retired couple may be able to claim spousal benefits, then later switch to payments based on their own work record. This could make sense if waiting until a later age would result in higher benefits.

For example, say the husband is 66 and the wife is 62. If the husband files for benefits, the wife could opt for half her husband’s benefit, while still earning money and letting her benefit grow. When she turns 70, she could drop the spousal benefit and file for benefits based on her own work record.

There are lots of strategies like this to maximize Social Security. As you approach retirement age, be sure and do lots of reading. This article from Kiplinger is a good example.

10. Benefits for your kids
When you start collecting Social Security benefits, unmarried dependent children under age 18 may qualify to receive benefits worth up to half of your full retirement benefit amount. This can include a biological child, adopted child, stepchild, or dependent grandchild. They may also get benefits if they’re 18-19 years old and a full-time student (no higher than grade 12) or 18 or older with a disability that began before age 22.

11. Plan ahead for taxes
If the sum of your adjusted gross income, nontaxable interest, and half your 2012 Social Security benefits exceeds $34,000 ($44,000 for couples), up to 85 percent of your benefits may be taxable. You can minimize this expense by using certain tax-saving moves, such as investing in annuities that allow you to earn interest that isn’t taxed until you withdraw it.

12. Do your due diligence
Always read your Social Security statements (either received as paper statements in the mail or online at SocialSecurity.gov/MyStatement) to be sure everything has been reported correctly. Although inaccuracies are uncommon, some scenarios lend themselves to a greater chance of error – such as a name change your employer failed to update on company records.

13. Clear your debts
Your Social Security benefits are protected from most debt collections, but they can be taken to collect unpaid federal taxes, federal student loan balances, and child support or alimony. Clearing these debts will leave your Social Security benefits untouched









YAHOO COMENTS ABOUT GUN DEATHS

Why is that you can only think of banning is the only way? Could it be that you are to dimwitted to think of anything else? Or could it be you're just to lazy and you like taking the easy way out? Chasing legal owners is easier than criminals? Or is that you think you're smarter than everyone and only you could be right? I bet it's all of the above.
It is illegal to kill people. Start enforcing that law and you won't have to worry about gun control

Where is the story about the kid in Texas that used an AR-15 to save himself and his little sister from two intruders? Oh, the gun control propaganda machine doesn't want Americans to hear that. That wouldn't support the zombie like brainwashing that AR-15's are bad, very bad.

The official Chinese government news agency, Xinhua, has demanded the US immediately adopt stricter gun control measures to reduce the number of firearms the US populace is permitted to possess.

The Chinese state-controlled mediia Statement, titled “Innocent Blood Demands No Delay for US Gun Control,” is primarily focused on the Newtown tragedy in which 26 Americans were killed by a mad gunman. Twenty of the victims were young children.

The Chinese government stated, “Their blood and tears demand no delay for the U.S. gun control.”
Google for more.
Is it Obuma or his handlers that want this????When the ChiCOM REPO MEN COME and they will.THEY want NO resistance. SO WE MUST COMPLY!!......not

these troubled teen are not seeing the consequences for doing these hideous acts. All the focus is putting blame on the guns, not the offenders. It's not my fault if i go out and kill someone, It's the guns fault. How about trying to figure out why a 15 year old has such sadistic ideas. He could of just as easily set their home on fire. Something is definately wrong with society these days, but it ain't guns. It's the mentality we are teaching our children. Or lack there of. When i was a child, these type things were the last thing on kids minds. We didn't have these type things happening, or if it did, it was so scarce you hardly heard about it. There might have been an accidental shooting, but kids had more character and respect for human life back then. Society is breeding these psychotic criminals, with no character, morals, or respect for their fellow man. Guns have always been around, it's the psycho's that are multiplying.

The fact (?) that an AR-15 "style" weapon was used should not have any more weight to the deaths than ....

"A school bus manufactured by General Motors was driven over a steep embankment when the driver was unable to brake for a curve due to icey road conditions." Therefor we must get rid of all GM style school buses.

Now wouldn't that be an idiotic conclusion!

You quickly realize what a serious situation we are in, when you go to describe the Bill of Rights to people who ask, and they start giggling. So, you wonder why they're giggling, and you realize that they're staring at their electronic devices doing 3 things at once. So many people have no attention span in this country. No ability to think deeply and rationally. That may be a worse threat than any crazy mind with any sharp object. Tens of millions of people, peacefully exercising their right to keep and bear arms, have done absolutely nothing to hurt anyone. We have a Bill of Rights in this country that should not be thrown away based on fear, and false promises of safety from a massive central state. Our Bill of Rights is under attack in more ways than one. Support tougher gun laws on violent criminals who use guns in the commission of a crime. Leave the tens of millions of people who have done nothing wrong alone.

I am a gun owner who has had a brother murdered. I understand what a gun can do, however it can also be a great aid in a dangerous society protecting your family and yourself.
America is a nation on the decline in moral values and that is the problem with our increasingly violent attitudes. If we will return to the time tested moral values that has made this nation great and safe, then we will stand a chance. When there were guns in EVERY home, it was safer, even on the streets. The guns are not the problem.
According to noted criminologist Dr. Gary Kleck of Florida State University, every year some 650,000 Americans use firearms to THWART criminal assault. That's 17,800 a day.
Another noted criminlogist and gun ban advocate, Marvin Wolfgang, said he could find no fault in Kleck's study.
Remember Kleck's study just included the ones that police reports were made out on. The figure goes to over 2 million when you count the estimation of the ones that ran at the sight of the gun and no shots were fired or no report was made.
I do not understand the mind that will blame an object and not the criminal. Criminals will always get the guns like the ones that get drugs in spite of the fact, there is a so-called WAR on them and they are ILLEGAL.
Law enforcement is only minutes away when seconds count.

POSSIBLY THE REAL PROBLEM, NOT GUNS, TO THE EPIDEMIC OF SCHOOL SHOOTINGS AND OTHER VIOLENCE IN AMERICA. Each day, at a handsome profit, the psychiatric industry writes new prescriptions for disability, violence, suicide, and murder. The disastrous consequences are felt by all Americans..
---------------
The questions surrounding the Sandy Hook shootings recall the Columbine massacre, where one of the shooters was taking the anti-depressant Luvox. In fact, over a 10-year period, 90 percent of school shootings were connected to antidepressant drugs called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors or SSRIs, according to a British psychiatrist and researcher Dr. David Healy..
---------------
The problem is the use of SSRI's (selective serotonin uptake inhibitors) without corresponding use of benzodiazepines. Taken alone, SSRI's leave people in a highly-agitated state--as in agitated to the point of committing violence against themselves and/or others. Heck, SSRI's were approved by the FDA thanks to studies that had SSRI's and benzodiazepines used together, and yet SSRI's are often prescribed without benzodiazepines!.
---------------
There have been 22 international drug regulatory warnings issued on psychiatric drugs causing violence, mania, hostility, aggression, psychosis, and other violent type reactions. These warnings have been issued in the United States, European Union, Japan, United Kingdom, Australia and Canada.
At least fourteen recent school shootings were committed by those taking or withdrawing from psychiatric drugs resulting in 109 wounded and 58 killed (in other school shootings, information about their drug use was never made public—neither confirming or refuting if they were under the influence of prescribed drugs.).

Lizzy Borden took an axe, gave her mother forty whacks. When she saw what she had done. She gave her father forty one.It's the looneys folks. Not the weapon. The government has messed up the society so bad and they want to blame things on inanimate objects.

Liberals keep saying that guns kill, will someone please tell me the last time a gun was on trial for murder.

They can print 100 of these articles if they want, It was still the idiot pulling the trigger that killed those people. The gun didn't walk itself down the street and start shooting people. And BTW, he could have killed all five of them with a little .22, Taking away the AR-15 isn't going to stop these morons.

too many mentally ill in the US. and idiots giving them access to firearms.
IT's probably too late already for chemo or radiation to cure America's cancer.

if ban guns it will open up a bigger black market for guns. it is easier to get a gun illegally than legally just like drugs. when I was a teenager I could get weed easy but cigs and alcohol was hard to get. criminals don't id you or run back ground checks.

the majority of american deaths are attributed to stupidity

Murder rate in 1999: 5.7 per 100,000
Murder rate in 2011: 4.7 per 100,000

This is the statistic you don't hear. Apparently, allowing the Clinton-era gun ban to expire lowered the murder rate......huh.....talk about an inconvenient statistic.

If prisons weren't first class, ie. free gym, free education, free meals, free housing, free medical, free pharma, free TV, free heating/air conditioning, etc., maybe less people would want to go there!

Only an fool would believe that the push for a ban of "assault weapons" on legal responsible gun owners will actually stop at "assault weapons".
Just a thought, a person does not kill because they have a gun, a person kills only because that person is a killer.

Thanks News Media Glorify another Poor Sick chides Out Cry for help ... Just because a certain weapon was used doesn't condemn the use of these weapons by law abiding citizens ... Glorify by scrutinizing all the auto deaths from Chevy's, Fords Cadillac or SUV's OH wait The media has tried to vilify the SUV ... DAMN p.s, Tobacco KILLS 445 thousand people a year in the USA Why not an out cry from the media about Tobacco?

Seems like this whole debate will come down to who can lobby more. The gun companies or the pharmaceutical companies. So far the drug companies are winning and I believe will win. No one spends more money on lobbying than Big Pharma. That is saying something. They beat oil, tobacco, alcohol, all that.

With our wide open borders and massive stockpile of illegal arms in the hands of criminals, there is no way to prevent criminals from getting any kind of gun they want any time they want, anywhere they want. Passing a law to ban a weapon only disarms law abiding citizens ... who we by definition don't have to worry about anyway.

What these gun grabbers will never tell you is that in the U.S. a gun is used 8 times more often to STOP a crime than to commit one ... so taking guns out of the hands of law abiding citizens only meas that those 8 times as many crimes will NOT be stopped!

FBI Statistics show that law abiding armed citizens (non-police) stop 2.5 MILLION crimes each and every year! If we disarm the public, that's an additional 2.5 MILLION crimes every year.

The reason people get shot is because the are defenseless ... so let's don't make the solution mandating that law abiding citizens be defenseless! Let's make it easy for law abiding citizens to defend themselves, then the criminals will be out of work.

Mean while a person was stabbed in ATL after the football game...The knife did it..

Seems in the last 3 weeks all the news is automatic assault weapons used and shotguns. People Chicago has no gun laws yet over 500 dead last year. That is Obama's home town. He has what 20 armed escorts when he goes to Chicago plus 30 police armed.

if you are a parent, you should never have a gun in the home with crazy kids, period, get rid of them now, chop them up, give them away, give them to the cops, but get rid of them, kids can be uncontrollable when they do not get what they want or something else. ok, then they can use a knife, well the world is not perfect so be prepared for the crazy people, lock doors, have something around to protect yourself from crazy kids, at least you will have a fighting chance unless you want to be slaughtered like a pig,

The media's 24/7 drum beating of gun related shootings certainly fans the flames for nut cases looking for their moment of fame. Maybe if they reported on the 1.5 million times a year that a law abiding citizen protects life or property with a firearm, some of this copy cat cr@p would cease

There's something else these three gun stories share -- all three shooters were crazy!!! HELLO!!!!!

I don't have a problem with people owning guns. I own some myself. I have a problem with stupid and/or crazy people owning guns

I'll inform the public about the real facts yahoo : #$%$ault rifles are rarely used in crimes and it's incredibly rare for a stranger to kill another stranger with an #$%$ault rifle.

In New York State where they recently banned #$%$ault weapons : there were 791 murders in 2011. 391 of those murders were by handgun, 191 by knife and only 5 by rifle ( could be any style of rifle and maybe none by #$%$ault weapons)

Yahoo is not Journalism, it's sensational partison journalism . Report the real facts Yahoo , your making an #$%$ out of yourself !

I have an AR15, but for some reason mine doesn't shoot people. Can anyone out there figure out why?

I can't believe the ravesn beat the pats - I might want to consider shooting myself or one of the harborough (sp) brothers so I don't have to hear about the match up of the brothers and all the stupid questions reporters will come up with - Just wanted to lighten things up a bit - Remember in Virginia when biden went off on a rant saying that he has rifles and NO one will ever take his guns from him! I went back on topic just to keep it real.

You think this is bad.
Wait till they get our guns.
Wait till it's the government that wakes up in a bad mood one morning.
You ain't seen nothing yet.

How many died on the nations roads yesterday? How many ABORTIONS killed innocent babies this year? 300,000+ according to PP. How many killed by guns in Chicago. Chicago had more gun deaths in 2012 that ALL OF AFGHANISTAN! They won't report THAT because its all BLACK ON BLACK crime--don't want to get into the racial politics. Rahm Emanuel the liberal schitheel mayor. But the press won't report THAT will they.

In 2009, prescription drugs killed at least 37,485 people nationwide, according to preliminary data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Didn't hear much about that.

According to the FBI data in 2011, more people were murdered with knives, “hands or feet” or “clubs and hammers” than with any type of "rifle."

Didn't hear much about that.

The report apparently shows there are 2,000 deaths/year from unnecessary surgery; 7000 deaths/year from medication errors in hospitals; 20,000 deaths/year from other errors in hospitals; 80,000 deaths/year from infections in hospitals; 106,000 deaths/year from non-error, adverse effects of medications - these total up to 225,000 deaths per year in the US from iatrogenic causes which ranks these deaths as the # 3 killer. Iatrogenic is a term used when a patient dies as a direct result of treatments by a physician, whether it is from misdiagnosis of the ailment or from adverse drug reactions used to treat the illness. (drug reactions are the most common cause).

Don't hear much about that.

The Guttmacher Institute, which periodically surveys U.S. abortion providers, reported Tuesday that there were 1.21 million abortions in 2008 and a rate of 19.6 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15-44.

Hear a little about that but as a whole is an acceptable way to end life to the left wing loons. And I do not understand why a left wing loon would not consider some of the shooting victims just a late term abortion.

Thirteen surveys indicated a range of between 800,000 to 2.5 million DGU's annually.
2192 daily on the low end, 6850 on the high end.
Don't hear much about this.

But hey, nothing sells headlines like blood drawn with a firearm.

I wonder where he got the idea, maybe from the news dwelling on the shootings. Reporters are now classed with Lawyers, Used Car Salesmen and Politicians.




YAHOO NEWS 2-9-13 DIET POP INCREASES RISK OF DIABETES BY TONS

Yet another study confirms what people have been saying for ages: Stop drinking diet soda. Like, right now. Drinking just one 12-ounce can of an artificially sweetened fizzy drink per week can increase your risk of Type 2 diabetes by 33 percent, French researchers found. And given that most people don't stop at a single weekly serving, your real risk for diabetes could actually be much higher.

Diet Soda May Increase Risk of Depression

The study, which was announced Thursday and will be published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, was conducted by France's National Institute of Health and Medical Research and covered 66,118 middle-aged women whose dietary habits and health were tracked from 1993 to 2007.

Diet Soda May Be Making You Fat

The results were unexpected. Though it's well-known that people who consume a lot of sugar are more likely to develop diabetes, the researchers found that participants who drank "light" or "diet" soft drinks had a higher risk of developing Type 2 diabetes than those who drank regular, sugar-filled sodas. Those who drank 100 percent natural squeezed fruit juices instead had no additional risk.

Women who choose artificially flavored soft drinks usually drink twice as many of them as women who choose regular soda or juice—2.8 glasses per week compared to 1.6 glasses. "Yet when an equal quantity is consumed, the risk of contracting diabetes is higher for 'light' or 'diet' drinks than for 'non-light' or 'non-diet' drinks," the researchers, epidemiologists Francoise Clavel-Chapelon and Guy Fagherazzi, said in a statement. Women who drank up to 500 milliliters (about 12 ounces) of artificially sweetened beverages per week were 33 percent more likely to develop the disease, and women who drank about 600 milliliters (about 20 ounces) per week had a 66 percent increase in risk.

Drinking sweetened beverages increases the risk of becoming overweight, which is itself a risk factor in developing diabetes. But the study didn't find that the results were the same even among overweight women. So how can artificially sweetened drinks be making the problem worse if they're fat- and calorie-free?

"With respect, in particular, to 'light' or 'diet' drinks, the relationship with diabetes can be explained partially by a greater craving for sugar in general by female consumers of this type of soft drink," the researchers explained. "Furthermore, aspartame, one of the main artificial sweeteners used today, causes an increase in glycaemia and consequently a rise in the insulin level in comparison to that produced by sucrose."

Translation: Drinking artificially sweetened drinks makes you crave other sweet things (hello, chocolate!). And your body reacts to aspartame—also known as NutraSweet and Equal—much in the same way that it reacts to plain old sugar.

According to the American Diabetes Association, about 25.8 million children and adults in the United States have diabetes—about 8.3 percent of the population. The disease is the leading cause of new cases of blindness in people age 20 and older, and can also cause heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, kidney disease, and damage to the nervous system. Type 2 diabetes—which can be controlled by diet and exercise rather than a daily insulin injection—is the most common form of diabetes in the United States.

The study's authors cautioned that more research was needed in order to prove a true causal link between diet sodas and Type 2 diabetes. "Information on beverage consumption was not updated during the follow-up, and dietary habits may have changed over time," they admitted in their report. "We cannot rule out that factors other than ASB [artificially sweetened beverages] are responsible for the association with diabetes."






YAHOO NEWS 3-1-13

..A California high school student was shocked at what she found when she decided to play detective and stop a string of thefts from backpacks during gym class.

Justine Betti said she decided to hide in a locker to see if she could catch the thief in action. She didn’t expect the alleged culprit to be her gym teacher.

After all of the students left the locker room, the teacher stayed behind, rummaged through backpacks and took money, Betti said.

“Something needed to be done. That’s not okay,” she told ABC News’ Sacramento affiliate KXTV. Betti is a sophomore at Linden High School in Linden, Calif., about 60 miles southeast of Sacramento.

Betti decided to hide in the locker again — this time, with a cellphone camera to record what she saw. She set up a second camera in another locker to get two angles.

Once again, she said she saw the teacher go through the bags. Her video shows someone digging through the bags, and one video appears to show the person taking something out of a pink duffel bag.

“I didn’t want to believe that she would do something like that because she was so nice, but then she did it,” Betti said. “It was really scary. I was like, ‘Oh my gosh. I can’t believe I just got this on video.’”

Betti said she kept watching it “over and over” and eventually took the video to her principal with some friends.

“He said that he’ll investigate it and he told us to delete the video, but I had already sent it to my dad,” she said.

The teacher is on administrative leave, according to KXTV. The Linden School District told ABCNews.com that it is investigating the matter, but the superintendent did not immediately respond to requests for further information.

The teacher has not been identified, but is a 30-year teaching veteran described as a “great teacher” by many students.

Betti said she struggled with recording and sharing the video, but said classmates have supported her.

“They’ve been supportive and said that we did the right thing,” she said. “We feel like we did the right thing, but it’s still kind of hard.”

Rare Undersea Discovery Could Extend Your Life by 10, 20 or 30 Years

Rare Undersea Discovery Could Extend Your Life by 10, 20 or 30 Years

Humans have made incredible health strides and are living longer lives than ever. Many of the maladies that struck down our ancestors have for the most part been completely eliminated – everything from tuberculosis, to polio to malaria.

Today, the biggest killers stem as much from our lifestyles as from microscopic bacteria and viruses. One of the worst of these is heart disease, and specifically high blood pressure. It’s a slow, but efficient killer that robs many people of what should be the last 10, 20 or 30 years of their lives.

Part of the reason that heart disease is so prevalent and intractable is that it often requires massive changes to one’s lifestyle— changes that are not easy to make. Everything from radically altering ones diet to implementing serious exercise routines. And while it’s never too late to start, people often realize the true danger only when it’s too late to make the changes and the damage is done.

Now, however, there may be a scientific breakthrough that could have an impact on high blood pressure comparable to penicillin’s ability treat infections or quinine’s effect on malaria.

Scientists are claiming that they have now isolated unusual ingredients in a rare seaweed discovered by fishermen off the coast of Korea that offer incredible health benefits—including the ability to restore blood pressure to normal levels.

Dr. Haengwoo Lee, a renowned biochemist living near Seattle, Washington conducted a massive 15 year, multimillion dollar clinical study on these two ingredients. The first is Seanol, an extremely rare seaweed extract from Ecklonia Cava that's proven to be 100 times more powerful than any land-based antioxidant. That's because it stays working in your body for 12 hours, compared to land-based antioxidants that work for 30 minutes.

"Its secret is its make-up of special polyphenol antioxidants that are a whopping 40% lipid (fat) soluble," Dr. Lee explains. "Unlike nearly all land-based antioxidants that are water soluble, Seanol's protective compounds can get into things like the fatty tissues of your brain and penetrate all three layers of your cells, including the outside, the oil-based cell membranes, and your DNA."

Indeed, Seanol is so powerful, it's the only FDA-approved Ecklonia Cava marine-algae extract in existence.

The second ingredient is Calamarine, a deep-sea omega-3 discovery that delivers 85% more DHA omega-3s to your heart, brain, joints, and eyes. It's known to combat everything from fatigue and poor memory, to vision problems, joint pain, mood swings and depression.

With that research in mind, Dr. Lee combined Seanol and Calamarine with a high dose of vitamin D to form Marine-D3, the newest supplement in the fight against age-related illnesses and high blood pressure.

According to the CDC, about 1 in 3 U.S. adults has high blood pressure, which increases the risk for heart disease and stroke, the two leading causes of death in the United States. Increasing your omega-3 intake can reduce high blood pressure, and because it's difficult to get enough omega-3s in foods like fish and nuts, many people turn to supplements.

Dr. Lee found that Calamarine delivers some of the greatest concentration of omega-3s known to science, and has been able to formulate it without any fishy burps or aftertaste. Combined with Seanol's ability to reduce body inflammation, as well as help cells get the nutrients they need to thrive, stay healthy and protected, Marine-D3 is able to boost a body's entire well being.

The makers of Marine-D3 are so confident that you'll see fast dramatic results from this product, that if you aren't happy after two full months, simply return the unused portion and they'll buy it back. They'll even give you ten dollars extra just for giving it an honest try! That kind of faith, combined with Dr. Lee's exhaustive research, shows that Marine-D3 really is a one-of-a-kind product.




ATRIAL FIBRILLATION 101

Atrial Fibrillation 101

Atrial fibrillation is the most common type of heart arrhythmia -- a disturbance in the rate or rhythm of the heartbeat. The heart's two upper chambers (the atria) contract rapidly and irregularly. As a result, blood doesn't get completely pumped into the lower chambers of the heart and through the rest of the body as it should.

This condition becomes more common as we age: about 4% of people older than age 65 have atrial fibrillation, and by age 80, about 11% of people are affected. There are about 2.7 million people in the U.S. who have been diagnosed with AFib, and many more remain undiagnosed. It's estimated that about one-third of the people with AFib in the U.S. don't know that they have it. More men than women have been diagnosed with AFib, but women are more likely to suffer a fatal stroke.

Common symptoms of atrial fibrillation include fatigue, difficulty breathing, shortness of breath, and heart palpitations. But some people don't notice any symptoms at all. The most reliable way to detect AFib is through an electrocardiogram (ECG). You should contact your health care professional if you notice symptoms, even if they go away.

There are many types of AFib, and that means there are many ways to treat it. Sometimes AFib symptoms clear up on their own; sometimes drugs or a medical procedure are needed to restore the heart to normal. Some people can control their AFib and only have occasional episodes; others live with AFib permanently. You and your health care professional will need to decide what approach works best for you.

Learn more about the causes, symptoms, and treatments of AFib.

Include in your report


Treating Your AFib

There are three main ways to help control atrial fibrillation:
•Medications to control the heart's rate and rhythm
•Cardioversion to "reboot" the heart's electrical activity
•A procedure to disable the heart cells involved in the abnormal electrical signaling

Because there are many factors to consider -- such as whether or not your heart resets to a normal rate and rhythm on its own, your age, and other medical conditions you may have -- your health care professional will recommend treatments for your atrial fibrillation that will be safest and most effective for you.

Here are some things you should know about how you told us you were treating your AFib.

Ablation
Cardiac ablation and the Maze procedure treat atrial fibrillation by terminating the short-circuits in the electrical pathways that regulate your heartbeat, or by blocking damaged pathways from sending off-beat signals to the rest of the heart. Targeted tissue in the heart is destroyed, or scar tissue (which doesn't conduct electrical impulses) is created.

The Maze procedure can be performed when "open heart" surgery, such as a bypass or valve replacement, is needed. Less invasive ablation procedures using catheters, probes, and lasers are more common.

Cardiac ablation has been found to be a generally safe and effective procedure. Ablation is successful in at least 90% of cases. One study reported that 63% of people who underwent catheter ablation were free of AFib after five years, but only 29% had had the procedure performed just once. AFib recurrence most often happens in the following six to 12 months, and it is more likely in people with hypertension (high blood pressure) and with high cholesterol and triglyceride levels.

Complications can sometimes occur with catheter ablation, and they usually arise within 30 days of the procedure. During the first three months after an ablation, you may actually experience some AFib or "heart flutter" due to temporary inflammation of the heart tissue. You should see your health care professional for routine follow-up visits starting no later than three months after undergoing an ablation, and every six months after that for at least two years.

The Importance of Treatment
Regardless of whether or not there are symptoms, AFib can be dangerous. Complications could be fatal, especially if you have another heart condition. Depending on other risk factors, people who have atrial fibrillation could be five times more likely to have a stroke than those who don't. Uncontrolled AFib could lead to heart failure in some people.

Anyone who has AFib needs ongoing regular checkups to help prevent complications and to make sure their treatment is working. Depending on what medications you are taking, your health care professional may also need to ensure that it is still safe and you aren't experiencing negative side effects. If your treatment plan isn't doing a good job of controlling your AFib, work with your health care professional to try something else. Your health and quality of life depend on it.

You probably realize that there are some prescription drugs that might interact dangerously with your atrial fibrillation medications. But did you know that some over-the-counter medications, herbs, and supplements can also aggravate your AFib or cause problems with the medications you're taking?

Over-the-counter nasal sprays, cold treatments, and some herbal supplements often contain stimulants and other active ingredients that could speed up your heart rate and aggravate your AFib.

You should check with your health care professional before taking anything -- yes, even an aspirin or a vitamin -- while being treated for AFib.

Hypertension
Many people with hypertension (high blood pressure) also have atrial fibrillation. Over time, hypertension can cause changes in the structure of your heart that can lead to the development of AFib and also increase your risk of stroke. AFib and high blood pressure together add up to a significantly greater risk of complications than either one of these conditions alone.

Several of the drugs often used to treat AFib, such as calcium channel blockers and beta-blockers, also help to manage hypertension, and following a low-sodium and low-fat diet is recommended for both conditions, too.

Because you have AFib, it's particularly important to keep your hypertension under control.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea
There is a strong association between atrial fibrillation and obstructive sleep apnea, a condition that produces episodes of interrupted or very shallow breathing during sleep. About one-third to one-half of all people with AFib also have sleep apnea.

It's not exactly clear how sleep apnea may cause AFib, but analysis of data from the Sleep Heart Health Study found that an abnormal heart rhythm was almost 18 times more likely after sleep-disordered breathing than normal breathing. Treating sleep apnea may help improve your AFib symptoms, and it reduces the risk of hypertension, which can contribute to AFib.

Excessive weight is a contributing factor for both obstructive sleep apnea and AFib, so shedding any extra pounds you're carrying can make a big difference.

Sleep apnea doesn't have to be severe to trigger AFib, and if this underlying condition isn't treated, cardioversion and ablation treatments for AFib are less likely to work and will have to be repeated.

A Healthy Lifestyle

Getting proper medical treatment is only part of successfully living with AFib. There are several lifestyle adjustments that the American Heart Association recommends to help manage AFib, too: following a heart-friendly diet, exercising regularly, staying away from triggers, and being mindful of your emotional health. To improve your overall wellness, consider adopting the habits below.

Eat a Heart-Healthy Diet


Eating heart-healthy is one of the most important lifestyle strategies to manage your atrial fibrillation. A low-sodium, low-fat diet -- such as the DASH diet -- can help. Keep these two simple rules in mind:
•Avoid saturated fats and trans fatty acids like those found in fried foods, fatty meals, and some cakes and cookies.
•Cut down on sodium (salt).

You may be getting more salt than you realize. When you shop, look for no- or low-sodium varieties of soups, snack foods, and lunch meats. Check out these tips for low-sodium dining out and these foods with "hidden" salt.

A healthy diet isn't just about giving up things, though. There are plenty of flavorful foods that are good to your heart, too!

Take a Break
Unfortunately, it's not just your emotional well-being that suffers when you're stressed. More than half of people with intermittent atrial fibrillation say that stress is the most common trigger for their symptoms, including a racing heart. If you're having trouble controlling the stress in your life, that could be making your AFib worse, too.

That's why you need to make time for down time. It may seem silly, but in a busy, overscheduled world, that might mean booking a block on your calendar for you. Make a date with yourself to do something that turns off (or at least distracts) the chatter in your brain and brings a smile to your face:
•Take a walk during lunch.
•Reserve an hour before bed to read a book.
•Spend Saturday afternoons with your grandchildren.
•Keep a daily journal of your thoughts and feelings.
•Get a massage every week.

You get the idea. It doesn't really matter what you choose to relieve stress, the important thing is that you do something, and make it part of your regular routine.

Exercise has been found to be a good way of relieving stress, and light to moderate exercise has the added benefit of being good for your heart as well. Yoga, especially in its more gentle forms, is not likely to send your heart rate skyrocketing, and research shows that it's particularly good for people with AFib.

Here are a few more ways to manage stress in your life. Like saying "no" to that volunteer committee position.

What to Ask Your Doctor

Here are some questions you can ask at your next visit to help you talk to your health care professional.
1.Are my symptoms a sign that my atrial fibrillation is getting worse?
2.Could my symptoms be a side effect of the medications I take?
3.Should I switch to a different heart medication or try a different treatment?
4.Should I have additional tests done?
5.What should I do if my symptoms get worse?

PATTI PAGE FROM MUSKOGEE OKLAHOMA, THE # 1 FEMALE RECORDING ARTIST IN HISTORY, OF TENNESSEE WALTZ FAME IN 1950 DIED TUESDAY 1-2-13 SHE WAS THE TOP FEMALE SINGER IN HISTORY WITH 100 MILLION RECORD SALES

Everybody knows that Elvis Presley was the top hit-maker of the 1950s, but who was the top female hit-maker of the decade? Move to the front of the class if you know that it was Patti Page, who died yesterday at age 85. Page had four #1 hits in that decade, including “The Tennessee Waltz,” which was one of the decade’s biggest hits. Page’s other chart-toppers were “All My Love (Bolero),” “I Went To Your Wedding” and the novelty tune “The Doggie In The Window,” which did little to enhance her artistic reputation, but remains one of her best-known songs.

Just last month, Page was announced as one of this year’s recipients of a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. Remarkably, she is the second recipient to have died since the announcements were made on Dec. 10. World music legend Ravi Shankar died the day after the announcements. (Both awards will be made posthumously next month.)
Neil Portnow, President and CEO of the Recording Academy, made note of Page’s death in a statement: “I recently had the privilege of speaking with Ms. Page and informing her that she would be recognized with The Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award this upcoming February, and she was grateful and excited to be receiving the honor.”

PAGE, WHO WAS BORN CLARA ANN FOWLER IN MUSKOGEE, OKLA., WAS ONE OF 11 CHILDREN.

SHE WORKED FOR A WHILE AT THE PAGE MILK COMPANY IN TULSA, OK. AND WHEN SHE STARTED RECORDING MUSIC, HER RECORD LABLE DECIDED SHE NEEDED A NEW NAME, SO THEY PICKED PATTI PAGE.

Page landed her biggest hit in 1950, when she was just 23. "The Tennessee Waltz" spent 13 weeks at #1. It is tied with "Goodnight Irene" by Gordon Jenkins and his Orchestra and the Weavers for the longest run at #1 by any hit in the 1950s. Page's recording of "The Tennessee Waltz" was voted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1998.

Page was nicknamed "The Ragin' Page" in the 1950s, and it's easy to see why. She and Presley are the only artists who topped the pop chart for eight or more weeks with three different songs in that decade. She scored with "The Tennessee Waltz," "I Went To Your Wedding" and "The Doggie In The Window." He scored with "Don't Be Cruel"/"Hound Dog," "All Shook Up" and "Heartbreak Hotel."

All but five of Page’s 24 top 10 hits occurred prior to 1955, but her rock-era hits include two of her biggest and most memorable, 1956’s “Allegheny Moon” and 1957’s “Old Cape Cod.” The latter song was referenced in the Beach Boys’ wistful 1971 ballad “Disney Girls” (which was written by Bruce Johnston): “Patti Page and summer days/On old Cape Cod.”

Page’s top 20 hits spanned three decades. She first reached the top 20 in the summer of 1948 with “Confess.” She made the top 10 for a final time in 1965 with the title song to the movie “Hush, Hush, Sweet Charlotte” (which starred Bette Davis and Olivia De Havilland). Page sang the song on the Oscars in April 1965.

Page had success with two other movie title songs: 1958’s “Another Time, Another Place” (starring Lana Turner) and 1962’s “The Boys’ Night Out” (starring James Garner).

Page’s most successful albums were Christmas With Patti Page, first released in 1955, and Manhattan Tower, which reached the top 20 in 1956.

Page also found success with a few songs from Broadway shows, namely “So In Love” (from Kiss Me, Kate), “Steam Heat” (from The Pajama Game) and “The Sound Of Music” (from the musical of the same name which starred Mary Martin).

Page’s other notable hits included “Say Something Sweet To Your Sweetheart” (a collabo with Vic Damone), “With My Eyes Wide Open I’m Dreaming” (which was credited to Patti Page Quartet), “Mockin’ Bird Hill” and “Cross Over The Bridge.”

The warm tones in Page's voice made her a natural for country music. She reached the top 20 on the country chart with four songs: 1949’s “Money, Marbles And Chalk,” 1950’s “The Tennessee Waltz” (which reached #2 country), 1962’s “Go On Home” and “Hello We’re Lonely,” a 1972 collabo with Tom T. Hall.

Page also starred in a few TV shows: The Patti Page Show (1956, a summer replacement for The Perry Como Show), The Big Record (1957-1958) and The Patti Page Olds Show (1958-1959).

Most of Page’s biggest hits pre-date the 1958 inception of the Grammy Awards, but Page won a Grammy for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Performance for her 1998 album Live At Carnegie Hall—The 50th Anniversary Concert. She was the second female artist to win in that category, following Natalie Cole (whose father, Nat “King” Cole, was a contemporary of Page’s from 1948 until his death in 1965).

So who exactly were the top female hit-makers of the 1950s? According to Joel Whitburn Presents A Century Of Pop Music, the top female hit-makers for that decade were, in order, Page, Kay Starr, Rosemary Clooney, Jo Stafford, Teresa Brewer, Georgia Gibbs, Doris Day and Joni James.

DEMOCRATS TO AMERICA: WE OWN THE GOVERNMENT!

Ann Coulter
YAHOO NEWS 10-9-12

In the current fight over the government shutdown, Republicans are simply representing the views of the American people.

Americans didn't ask for Obamacare, they don't want it, but now their insurance premiums are going through the roof, their doctors aren't accepting it, and their employers are moving them into part-time work -- or firing them -- to avoid the law's mandates.

Contrary to Obama's promises, it turns out: You can't keep your doctor, you can't keep your insurance -- you can't even keep your job. In other words, it's a typical government program, but this one wrecks your health care.

Also, the president did raise taxes on the middle class in defiance of his well-worn campaign promise not to. Indeed, Obamacare is the largest tax hike in U.S. history.

Among the other changes effected by this law are:

-- Obamacare will allow insurers to charge 50 percent higher premiums for smokers, but prohibits insurers from increasing premiums for those with HIV/AIDS.

-- Nationally, Obamacare will increase men's individual insurance premiums by an average of 99 percent and women's by 62 percent. In North Carolina, for example, individual insurance premiums will triple for women and quadruple for men.

-- Health plans valued at $27,500 or more for a family of four will be taxed at a rate of 40 percent.

-- No doctors who went to an American medical school will be accepting Obamacare.

-- A 62-year-old man earning $46,000 a year is entitled to a $7,836 government tax credit to buy health insurance. But if he earns an extra $22 in income, he loses the entire $7,836 credit. He will have more take-home pay by earning $46,000 than if he earns $55,000. (If he's lucky, he already works for one of the companies forced by Obamacare to reduce employees' hours!)

-- Merely to be eligible for millions of dollars in grants from the federal government under Obamacare, education and training programs are required to meet racial, ethnic, gender, linguistic and sexual orientation quotas. That's going to make health care MUCH better!

-- Obamacare is turning America into a part-time nation. According to a recent report by economist John Lott, 97 percent of all jobs added to the economy so far this year have been part-time jobs. Ninety-seven percent!

-- Obamacare is such a disaster that the people who wrote it refuse to live under it themselves. That's right, Congress won a waiver from Obamacare.

Responding to the people's will, House Republicans first voted to fund all of government -- except Obamacare. Obama refused to negotiate and Senate Democrats refused to pass it.

Then the Republicans voted to fully fund the government, but merely delay the implementation of Obamacare for one year. Obama refused to negotiate and Senate Democrats refused to pass it.

Finally, the Republicans voted to fully fund the government, but added a requirement that everyone live under Obamacare. No more special waivers for Congress and their staff, and no waivers for big business without the same waivers for individuals.

Obama refused to negotiate and Senate Democrats refused to pass it. So as you can see, Republicans are the big holdup here.

A longtime Democratic operative, Karen Finney, explained the Democrats' intransigence on MSNBC to a delighted Joan Walsh (aka the most easily fooled person on TV) by comparing House Republicans to a teenager trying to borrow his mother's car. "No, I'm not negotiating!" Mother says. "It's MY CAR!"

This wasn't a stupid slip of the tongue that other Democrats quickly rejected. Finney had used the exact same metaphor to a panel of highly agreeable MSNBC guests the day before. (MSNBC books no other kind of guest.)

The left thinks the government is their car and the people's representatives are obstreperous teenagers trying to borrow the government. Which belongs to Democrats.

That's not how the Constitution views the House of Representatives. To the contrary, the House is considered most reflective of the people's will because its members are elected every two years.

As a matter of fact, the Republicans who mistakenly assume they have something to do with running the government represent most of the people who pay taxes to run it. So it's more like a teenager who is making the car payments, maintaining the car insurance and taking responsibility for registering the car being told: "It's not your car."

But the Democrats refuse to even negotiate. It's their government -- and if you Republicans think you're going out dressed like that, you've got another thing coming! Needless to say, they absolutely will not consider the Republicans' demand that Democrats merely live under Obamacare themselves.

Instead, Democrats say "the Koch brothers" are behind the effort to defund Obamacare.

They say Republicans are trying to "burn the whole house down" (Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz); "have lost their minds" (Sen. Harry Reid); are trying to negotiate "with a bomb strapped to their chest" (senior White House adviser Dan Pfeiffer); are "legislative arsonists" (Rep. Nancy Pelosi); and are engaging in "blatant extortion" (White House press secretary Jay Carney).

The MSNBC crowd calls Republicans "arsonists" every 15 minutes. They ought to check with fellow MSNBC host Al Sharpton. He knows his arsonists! In 1995, Sharpton whipped up a mob outside the Jewish-owned Freddy's Fashion Mart with an anti-Semitic speech. Sometime later, a member of the mob torched the store, killing seven Hispanic employees.

Every single Democrat in the country uses the exact same talking point: We "refuse to negotiate with a gun being held to our head."

Which means that the Democrats will engage in no negotiation at all -- not now, not ever. House Republicans have already passed three-dozen bills defunding, or otherwise modifying, Obamacare. Senate Democrats and liberal commentators had a good laugh at Republicans for passing them. Now they're paying attention!

If you are in the minority of Americans not already unalterably opposed to Obamacare, keep in mind that the only reason the government is shut down right now is that Democrats refuse to fund the government if they are required to live under Obamacare.
That's how good it is!

7 Things Remarkably Happy People Do Often

YAHOO NEWS 4-22-14


FORMULA FOR HAPPINESS


Happiness: everyone wants it, yet relatively few seem to get enough of it, especially those in their early forties. (I'm no psychologist, but that's probably about when many of us start thinking, "Wait; is this all there is?")

Good news and bad news: unfortunately, approximately 50 percent of your happiness, your "happiness set-point," is determined by personality traits that are largely hereditary. Half of how happy you feel is basically outside your control.

Bummer.

But, that means 50 percent of your level of happiness is totally within your control: relationships, health, career, etc. So even if you're genetically disposed to be somewhat gloomy, you can still do things to make yourself a lot happier.

Like this:



1. Make good friends.

It's easy to focus on building a professional network of partners, customers, employees, connections, etc, because there is (hopefully) a payoff.

But there's a definite payoff to making real (not just professional or social media) friends. Increasing your number of friends correlates to higher subjective well being; doubling your number of friends is like increasing your income by 50 percent in terms of how happy you feel.

And if that's not enough, people who don't have strong social relationships are 50 percent less likely to survive at any given time than those who do. (That's a scary thought for loners like me.)

Make friends outside of work. Make friends at work. Make friends everywhere.

Make real friends. You'll live a longer, happier life.

2. Actively express thankfulness.

According to one study, couples that expressed gratitude in their interactions with each other resulted in increases in relationship connection and satisfaction the next day--both for the person expressing thankfulness and (no big surprise) for the person receiving it. (In fact, the authors of the study said gratitude was like a "booster shot" for relationships.)

Of course the same is true at work. Express gratitude for employee's hard work and you both feel better about yourselves.

Another easy method is to write down a few things you are grateful for every night. One study showed people who wrote down 5 things they were thankful for once a week were 25 percent happier after ten weeks; in effect they dramatically increased their happiness set-point.

Happy people focus on what they have, not on what they don't have. It's motivating to want more in your career, relationships, bank account, etc. but thinking about what youalready have, and expressing gratitude for it, will make you a lot happier.

And will remind you that even if you still have huge dreams you have already accomplished a lot--and should feel genuinely proud.

3. Actively pursue your goals.

Goals you don't pursue aren't goals, they're dreams, and dreams only make you happy when you're dreaming.

Pursuing goals, though, does make you happy. According to David Niven, author of 100 Simple Secrets of the Best Half of Life, "People who could identify a goal they were pursuing(my italics) were 19% more likely to feel satisfied with their lives and 26 percent more likely to feel positive about themselves."

So be grateful for what you have... then actively try to achieve more. If you're pursuing a huge goal, make sure that every time you take a small step closer to achieving it you pat yourself on the back.

But don't compare where you are now to where you someday hope to be. Compare where you are now to where you were a few days ago. Then you'll get dozens of bite-sized chunks of fulfillment--and a never-ending supply of things to be thankful for.

4. Do what you excel at as often as you can.

You know the old cliché regarding the starving yet happy artist? Turns out it's true: artists are considerably more satisfied with their work than non-artists--even though the pay tends to be considerably lower than in other skilled fields.

Why? I'm no researcher, but clearly the more you enjoy what you do and the more fulfilled you feel by what you do the happier you will be.

In The Happiness Advantage, Shawn Anchor says that when volunteers picked, "...one of their signature strengths and used it in a new way each day for a week, they became significantly happier and less depressed."

Of course it's unreasonable to think you can chuck it all and simply do what you love. But you can find ways to do more of what you excel at. Delegate. Outsource. Start to shift the products and services you provide into areas that allow you to bring more of your strengths to bear. If you're a great trainer, find ways to train more people. If you're a great salesperson, find ways to streamline your admin tasks and get in front of more customers.

Everyone has at least a few things they do incredibly well. Find ways to do those things more often. You'll be a lot happier.

And probably a lot more successful.

5. Give.

While giving is usually considered to be unselfish, giving can also be more beneficial for the giver than the receiver. Providing social support may be more beneficial than receiving it.

Intuitively I think we all knew that because it feels awesome to help someone who needs it. Not only is helping those in need fulfilling, it's also a reminder of how comparatively fortunate we are--which is a nice reminder of how thankful we should be for what we already have.

Plus, receiving is something you cannot control. If you need help--or simply want help--you can't make others help you. But you can always control whether you offer and provide help.

And that means you can always control, at least to a degree, how happy you are--because giving makes you happier.

6. Don't single-mindedly chase "stuff."

Money is important. Money does a lot of things. (One of the most important is to create choices.)

But after a certain point, money doesn't make people happier. After about $75,000 a year,money doesn't buy more (or less) happiness. "Beyond $75,000... higher income is neither the road to experience happiness nor the road to relief of unhappiness or stress," say the authors of that study.

"Perhaps $75,000 is the threshold beyond which further increases in income no longer improve individuals' ability to do what matters most to their emotional well-being, such as spending time with people they like, avoiding pain and disease, and enjoying leisure."

And if you don't buy that, here's another take: "The materialistic drive and satisfaction with life are negatively related." Or, in layman's terms, "Chasing possessions tends to make you less happy."

Think of it as the bigger house syndrome. You want a bigger house. You need a bigger house. (Not really, but it sure feels like you do.) So you buy it. Life is good... until a couple months later when your bigger house is now just your house.

New always becomes the new normal.

"Things" only provide momentary bursts of happiness. To be happier, don't chase as many things. Chase a few experiences intead.

7. Live the life you want to live.

Bonnie Ware worked in palliative care, spending time with patients who had only a few months to live. Their most common regret was, "I wish I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me."

What other people think--especially people you don't even know--doesn't matter. What other people want you to do doesn't mater.

Your hopes, your dreams, your goals... live your life your way. Surround yourself with people who support and care not for the "you" they want you to be but for the real you.

Make choices that are right for you. Say things you really want to say to the people who most need to hear them. Express your feelings. Stop and smell a few roses. Make friends, and stay in touch with them.

And most of all, realize that happiness is a choice. 50 percent of how happy you are lies within your control, so start doing more things that will make you happier.

ASTRONAUT SCOTT KELLY SNAPPED THIS PICTURE OF A UFO OUTSIDE THE INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION

Is the truth out there?

Conspiracy theorists believe that it just might be, after an astronaut on the ISS tweeted this picture - with what appears to be a UFO hanging ominously in the top right hand corner.

The picture was shared by astronaut Scott Kelly - who has spent almost a year in orbit, and now alien conspiracists believe that the photo is an attempt by Kelly ‘to tell the world about the existence of aliens.’

Freaky.

In a YouTube video, conspiracy theorist Sonofmabarker says: ‘You can clearly see a large object with two lights on each end.“

‘It also appears to be very large and constructed.

‘I would find it hard to believe that Scott Kelly did not notice this when he tweeted this out.

‘It really sticks out like a sore thumb.

‘Scott Kelly thank you for sending this photo down to Earth.

‘Hardly a week goes by without someone from the ISS sending us a photo or video that really is quite strange and it is left for us to decide.’

NASA also refuses to provide individual explanations of UFO ‘sightings’ - which only acts to heighten suspicions of the believers of little green men.

The aliens have BEEN on Earth for hundreds of years, [and] made treaties and agreements with our governments; there are millions of them in secret underground complexes such as DULCE, New Mexico, which are responsible for the abduction of American children and citizens and the cattle mutilations documented in books and on TV.

Bill Holden, who also served as loadmaster for Air Force One, traveled with Kennedy to Europe in the summer of 1963. He said a UFO conference in Bonn, Germany, prompted a discussion of the subject aboard the President's plane one morning. Holden said he turned to Kennedy and asked, "What do you think about UFOs, Mr. President?" He said Kennedy became quite serious and thought for a moment before replying, "I'd like to tell the public about the alien situation, but my hands are tied." President John F. Kennedy & UFO's Was JFK silenced for knowing too much?

During the United States initial space exploration and the Moon landings every launch was accompanied by alien craft. On November 20, 1990, Los Angeles TV Channel 2 announced that a separate, red, glowing round-shaped object accompanied the space shuttle Atlantis on its latest classified military mission. That was the first public admission. (Behold A Pale Horse, William Cooper, pg. 220)

One former employee of NASA, the American space agency, told the research team that radio hams heard Apollo crew members Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin agog with amazement when they saw the aliens. "These babies are huge, sir, enormous! Oh my God!" Armstrong reported to mission control. "There are other spacecraft out there, lined up on the crater's edge. They're on the moon, watching us! "The encounter was confirmed to the researchers by Maurice Chatelain, a former head of communications at NASA. UFO Sightings by Astronauts

"In July 1952, a panicked government watched helplessly as a squadron of 'flying saucers' flew over Washington, D.C., and buzzed the White House, the Capitol Building, and the Pentagon. It took all the imagination and intimidation the government could muster to force that incident out of the memory of the public. (GOOGLE UFOS OVER THE WHITE HOUSE & SEE THE PHOTOS)"Thousands of sightings occurred during the Korean war and several more saucers were retrieved by the Air Force. Some were stored at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, some were stored at Air Force bases near the locations of the crash site.

SERMON ABOUT NAVY PILOT ADMIRAL RICHARD E. BRYD DISCOVERING THE HOLLOW EARTH IN 1947


In one of the most extraordinary and strange deathbed confessions ever, an Area 51 scientist and career government worker recently left behind a video revealing supposed federal secrets that are nothing short of a conspiracy theorist's dream come true. The Inquistr reported Oct. 28 that Boyd Bushman, a highly accredited aerospace scientist and the holder of numerous innovative patents, decided to come clean in his last hours and record what he knew about the U. S. government's dealings with aliens and its secret UFO program. Perhaps most astonishing of all, though, was his revelation that not only were UFOs real, but that 18 extraterrestrials were currently working for the U. S. government.

Boyd Bushman, whose career saw the man holding positions with Lockheed-Martin, Hughes Aircraft and other aerospace firms, died on August 7, 2014. But prior to his passing, he gave an interview that has caught the attention of many in the UFO community. His words affirm much of what many have come to believe -- that UFOs are real, that the government has had dealings with aliens for decades, and that there has been a concerted effort to keep the information secret from the general populace over the same period.

Bushman says in the video that he was responsible at Area 51 for "reverse engineering" alien technology for use in the U. S. military. Among his revelations was that the alien craft was indeed saucer-shaped -- it was an actual "flying saucer" -- and 38 feet across.

But far more shocking -- some might say more disturbing -- was Bushman's claims that aliens that had traveled to Earth were out and about, working for the federal government. The scientist said there were 18 extraterrestrials working for the government. Some of them were at least 250 years old.

Boyd Bushman isn't the first former government employee with inside knowledge of secret facilities like Area 51 who has been willing to share their experiences. However, he may be the most credible. His position as an aerospace engineer and his having opened up just before his death in what amounts to a deathbed confession (an act seen as having legal weight) lends extra merit to his words.

Bushman also produced several photos of what he claimed were aliens working at Area 51, some of which he says died while working at the top secret government facility. The Nevada facility has been operational since 1955 and has been the focus of speculation ever since. Being an experimental testing ground cloaked the base not only in secrecy but also added the atmosphere that gave rise to the idea of cover-ups and sinister goings-on.

It is a story worthy of "The X-Files." Still, is there any validity to the claims of the late Boyd Bushman? Is Area 51 exactly what conspiracy theorists and UFO true believers have claimed it to be over the years -- a hiding place for UFOs and extraterrestrials?

Although Bushman's claims may be difficult to verify, one thing is certain: His video testament has become something of note. Since it was posted on Oct. 8, the interview video has garnered over 2.6 million views to date.

YAHOO NEWS 8-8-14 IF YOU DON'T WANT TO DIE FROM A STORKE OR BRAIN ANERURYSM, QUIT SMOKING. 80% OF PEOPLE WITH BURSTING BLOOD VESSELS IN THEIR HEAD, SMOKE!!! SO, WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO QUIT?

The sudden death of Martha Stewart’s younger sister Laura Plimpton from a ruptured brain aneurysm this week has no doubt sent much of the general population into a panic. So Yahoo Health turned to one of the country’s biggest experts in the field, Dr. Christopher Ogilvy, director of the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center Brain Aneurysm Institute in Boston, for some answers — which were not, unfortunately, all that comforting.

“About 20 percent of people who have an aneurysm rupture drop dead, while another 30 percent go on to die even if they manage to get treated,” he explained. “Of the survivors, about a third do OK, about a third wind up with serious deficits, and a third are in between.” The good news, however, is that brain aneurysms are relatively rare, with about 3 to 5 percent of the population living with one that will never burst. “When I’m sitting on a bus with a hundred people, I know a couple of them have an aneurysm,” Ogilvy noted. “But not all of them will burst.”

So what is an aneurysm, anyway? Also called a cerebral aneurysm or intracranial aneurysm (IA), it’s a weak and bulging spot on the wall of a brain artery, according to the nonprofit Brain Aneurysm Foundation, “much like a thin balloon or weak spot on an inner tube.” Over time, as it weakens more, there is a chance of leaking or bursting. The most common type, referred to as “saccular,” is a berry shaped bulge; it accounts for 80 to 90 percent of aneurysms and is most likely to burst. The other kind, called “fusiform,” is much less common, and seldom ruptures.

There are some risk factors for having an aneurysm, according to Ogilvy, which include smoking (about 80 percent of his patients have been smokers, he said) and having a family history of the condition. And though the presence of one can be found through an MRA scan (which differs from an MRI because it looks at blood vessels rather than organs and tissues), there is much debate over what should be done when an aneurysm is detected, Ogilvy said. Making the decision whether or not to perform risky surgeries — which may include clipping the bulge or sealing it from within (called endovascular embolization) — will depend on many factors, including the size and location of the aneurysm, as well as the age and health of the patient. But even screening for them in the first place is not as simple as it sounds.

“You can’t just go screening everyone in the U.S.,” Ogilvy said. “If we did, it would be cost-prohibitive [to the provider], and some HMOs won’t pay for it at all.” Many times, when aneurysms are found, they’re in patients undergoing screenings for other reasons, including head injuries caused in accidents. But it’s certainly worth asking about if you think you’re having symptoms, which —when they do appear (and they don’t always) — can include double vision, difficulty speaking, pain behind an eye, or what some may describe as “the worst headache of my life,” Ogilvy said. But in Plimpton’s case, he believes, “It must have burst in a way so severe, there was nothing they could do.”

So, bottom line: What can you do? Stop smoking, for starters. And if you’ve had at least two instances of aneurysms in your family’s history, consider getting screened. Beyond that, keep calm and carry on.

yahoo news story on 12-11-10 Manu Ginobili
YAHOO NEWS 12-11-10 NBA BASKETBALL PLAYER Manu Ginobili SAYS HE & OTHER PLAYERS SAW A UFO OVER THE STAPLES CENTER

LOS ANGELES – Manu Ginobili of the San Antonio Spurs had an encounter with a UFO off court – and on.

Manu Ginobili saw a UFO in Los Angeles last week, and the part of the incident was captured on video.

TMZ.com has the exclusive footage of the encounter outside the arena, in which the San Antonio Spurs star can be seen looking at something strange in the LA night sky.

Was it a plane, or was it an Unidentified Flying Object?

Authorities confirmed today that it was a UFO. A UFO that apparently is stalking the Argentinian star. Ginobili first saw the UFO while running down the court in the third quarter of the Spurs game against the Los Angeles Lakers. Ginobili fell to the ground and pointed to the ceiling of the Staples Center, “I see a UFO, I see a UFO,” Ginobili shouted to his confused teammates and the Lakers.

Ginobili then ran around the arena, trying to convince everybody that the UFO was going to crash through the ceiling of the Staples Center. His teammates didn’t seem worried, but they did see the UFO as well:

Later, outside the arena, Ginobili saw the UFO again. That’s when TMZ caught him on tape.

Ginobili apparently decided to research the matter himself. He determined that alien spaceship was from Planet Zeeba. “I could tell by the red triangular formulations underneath the spaceship.” Ginobili plans to go to Washington D.C. to confirm his sighting with the government.

Ginobili told everyone that men in dark suits and sunglasses had showed up at his front step and told him that they were from Planet Zeeba and meant no harm to him – not only that, but they told him they were big fans of his.

Ginobili also denied claims that it was a weather balloon. “There is a government cover-up going on, it’s just like Rosewell.”

“The good thing is I’m not the only one that saw it,” Ginobili said. “I’m not totally crazy.”

Ginobili is convinced that there is life on other planets and that there is an alien invasion occurring at this very moment. He hopes to one day travel to Planet Zeeba. “Maybe they play basketball there.”
