Green Hospitals Vs Green Healing

As our society becomes more environmentally aware and green conscious, new areas of attention constantly come to the forefront of our awareness. We worry about switching light bulbs, proper compost able garbage bags, and aerated shower heads. I recently saw a pizza place proclaiming itself as a ‘green eatery’ because they were only going to give out two napkins per slice of pizza.

What is Your Check Engine Light Telling You?

One out of every 15 vehicles inspected at check-up events has its ‘check engine’ light illuminated when it arrives according to Car Care Canada’s Be Car Care Awarecampaign. When the ‘check engine’ light comes on, it means that a system in your vehicle, such as ignition, fuel injection or emission control, is not operating at peak performance, even if your vehicle seems to be running normally.

The Father Factor: How Dad’s Age Increases Baby’s Risk of Mental Illness

- Paul Raeburn 
Key Concepts

It is widely recognized that a 40-year-old woman has an increased risk of bearing a child with Down syndrome. What is not known is that a 40-year-old man has the same risk of fathering a child with schizophrenia—and even higher odds of his offspring having autism. The risk of bipolar disorder appears to rise as well.

Nursing Home Essentials

-Lise Cloutier-Steele

The placement of my father in a long term care facility was one of the most difficult decisions I have ever had to make.  He needed health care that I could not provide on my own, and knowing that home services would be difficult to get on a regular basis, a nursing home was my best option.

Kurt Warner’s Return to Glory

It is a safe bet that no one picked the Arizona Cardinals to reach the Super Bowl during NFL pre-season last summer.  If someone had picked the Cardinals to play in the big game it is very likely that someone would have counted on Kurt Warner being the starting quarterback.  Yet this Sunday it will be the 37-year-old Warner who will attempt the lead the Cardinals to their first ever Super Bowl and first title for the franchise since the Cardinals won the NFL Championship in 1947 when they called Chicago home.

Unlocking a Key to Personal Excellence! 

One of the greatest secrets of champions in all areas of life and sport is often overlooked by the ‘masses of mediocrity’ as being unimportant, trivial or it is seen as being ‘way too easy’ to be of such a significant value. Yet every champion, every successful endeavor and individual is founded upon this truth.  Businesses, sports teams, executives and leaders of industry and nations have all attempted to tap into this source of power. They understand the ability that this principle has in motivating individuals to perform at higher levels than they individually believe they could achieve.

Government moving to make supplements illegal

The US and Canadian governments are attempting to quietly pass legislation (CODEX in the US and Bill C-51/52 in Canada) that is designed to regulate natural supplements and vitamins under the control of ‘Big Pharma’ and the medical profession. Codex and Bill C-51 are proposing the need for this legislation under two claims. First is the ‘need to protect the public from the dangers posed by such supplements’. Secondly, they claim that these supplements are non effective anyway.

“Jesus Freak” Kurt Warner Headed to Super Bowl 43!

- Satire -
Sports fans who have followed Kurt Warner’s pro football career know that the man is a humble, God fearing player who always gives due credit to HIS main man: Jesus Christ, whom Warner calls his Lord and Savior.

Warner’s religious transparency leaves some feeling squeamish, none of whom are among the 50,000 crazed Arizona Cardinal fans who are still celebrating Warner’s performance in a 32-25 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles this afternoon.
