Finally, there was a ruling about it in an LA court on Nov. 19. Here is what the area's wire is reporting: A judge ruled that a handwritten letter by Marilyn Monroe in which she talked about the difficulties of performing before the c

There’s a saying out there in the business world, “Big fish swallow small fish, and I’m fine with that.” OK, maybe I made that saying up but you get my drift.

Marcus Mariota entered the second lap of Royal Raceway with a significant lead on his Mario Kart counterparts, but Melvin Gordon threw a wrench—no, actually it was one of those thunderbolt power-ups—into his plans of strolling through the finish line with ease. Now entering the final lap with a few more significant obstacles in sight, it’s a neck-and-neck race to the finish between the two to esta

Cognitive impairment develops with pre-diabetes and dementia is a complication of diabetes. Natural products like turmeric may reduce the risk. There is no clear evidence that pharmacology alters the risk of dementia in diabetes, with the possible exception of metformin however, there is controversy of whether the risk of vitamin B12 deficiency with metformin may diminish its possible value.

Deep within the mountains of Cao Bằng province in northern Vietnam is where the Black Lolo people call home. This ethnic minority group, whose origins are from northern Indochina, lead a very simple life. Electricity, if it works, comes from a small pump powered by a mountain stream.

"If you do not breathe through writing, if you do not cry out in writing, or sing in writing, then don't write, because our culture has no use for it." - Anais Nin "I write to taste life twice"--Anais Nin I am a wife, mother, educator, advocate who might occasionally--ok, more oft than not-- feel too much, think too much, cuss too much, over analyze, over-react, overly sensitive--but I don't know any other way to be--that's just me. If you find any of my articles witty, enjoyable, provocative, infuriating, aggravating, insightful or educational--then my work here is half way done.
