NBC Kills New Bill Cosby Show

4-20-2015 Because more than 15 women have opened up albout allegations of sexual abuses by Cosby, the network has decided to cut its loses and cut Bill Crosby out as a lability issue. Can't say I blame them as he has never apologized to any of them publically.

TV Land has dropped all reruns of his show immediately after NBC made their announcement. Canadian shows have also been cancelled. Translation, he's washed up for sure, done, baked.

Bobbi Kristina Brown is Out of Coma and Awake

Aaron Hernandez sentenced to life in prison with no parole

4-15-2015 He almost had everything in life that he could ever want, but, he picked up a gun and used it in anger. He has lost his prescious freedom from ever walking down a city street anywhere in America in freedom. Just before picking up that gun, he was at an alltime high with the NFL because he had signed his contract, a value of $40 million dollars. He was a former tight end for the New England Patriots at the time. Hernandez was not the only one there at the time of the killing, there were two other men at the scene. In most cases like this there will be an appeal.

Excerpts from Tony Robbins New Book Money Master of the Game

Hug a tree the evidence shows it really will make you feel better

Shelby Gull Lairn

April 22,2015 We know that trees have many benefits. In forests they provide habitat, wood, biodiversity and ecosystem services. In cities, they can mitigate the urban heat island effect by cooling the air and reducing greenhouse gases.

But, perhaps surprisingly, there is increasing evidence that trees are also good for our mental health.

Are we all tree-huggers?

The idea that humans are intimately connected to the earth has persisted throughout human history and across cultures. In the western world, this connection was most recently described by eminent biogeographer E.O. Wilson in his 1984 book Biophilia. Wilson notes that humans naturally like to be around other living things.

This theory helps to explain why people prefer green scenes to urban scenes, why pet owners are happier and healthier, and possibly why we’re so obsessed with cute and cuddly animals.

This hypothesis was the basis of “connection to nature”. Psychologists have now developed multiple scales used by researchers to determine how connected a person is, and how we might be able to increase our connection to our benefit.

Connection to nature research is still developing, but early results seem to indicate that how connected to nature you are is related to your environmental behaviours, such as participation in recycling programs and an increase in overall well-being and happiness.

Four UNICEF Workers Killed Monday Morning in Somalia

4-20-2015 According to officials "At about 8:00 this morning, a suspected IED (improvised explosive device) targeted a UN vehicle in Garowe, Puntland, Somalia. A UNICEF statement said that the IED attack occurred when the staffs were travelling from their guest house to the office, normally a three-minute drive. Emergency response operations are ongoing."

In a news release statement continued:“The horrific attack on our UNICEF colleagues today in northern Somalia is an assault not only on them but on the people they served. Our immediate thoughts are with the families of the four staff members who were killed and with those who were injured,” Mr. Lake added.

Mr. Lake continued “Our colleagues dedicated their lives to working for the children of Somalia. They are not victims. They and those who were wounded are heroes. We mourn their loss and hope for the full recovery of the injured,” he said.

NASCAR Says no on new Indiana Discrimination Law:

4-13-2015 NASCAR is disappointed by the recent legislation passed in Indiana. We will not embrace nor participate in exclusion or intolerance. We are committed to diversity and inclusion within our sport and therefore will continue to welcome all competitors and fans at our events in the state of Indiana and anywhere else we race. NCAA, NBA, and WNBA are publicly denouncing the new law. Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay has also come out against the law, although the NFL has remained silent. Why is NFL so late in coming onboard?

Governor Mike Pence feels his decision to signing the "Religious Freedom Rights Act"is correct. If enacted it would mean that business owners could discriminate against LGBT customers.

Message from the Surgeon General

4-9-2015 The White House, Washington Hi, everyone,

I'm the Surgeon General of the United States -- which means it's my job to keep America healthy by providing you with the best scientific information available about your health.

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to meet with President Obama, EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy and health care professionals to discuss climate change. We talked about the impact of climate change on public health and the importance of prevention.

Clearly, we all have a stake in our national and global health. Every single one of us stands to benefit from a public health system that is focused on wellness and prevention -- not one that simply focuses on treating sickness and disease.

So as part of National Public Health Week, I'm taking your questions. If you're on Twitter, and you've got a question about the impact of climate change on health -- or any other public health topic -- shoot it my way using the hashtag #AskTheSurgeonGeneral.

I'll be answering your questions via video throughout the afternoon tomorrow from my Twitter account, @Surgeon_General.

Every one of us wants to do what we can to protect the health of our families, including the health of our grandchildren and future generations. That starts with being informed about how we can keep ourselves, and one another, healthy -- particularly in the face of a changing climate.

I'm looking forward to hearing what you have to say.

Stay healthy, America.


U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy @Surgeon_General

Boston Bomber Younger Brother Tsarnaev Could get Death Penalty

4-8-2015 Tsarnaev convicted on 30 counts of violence during the Boston bombing fiasco. Following his brother into violence of the Boston Bombing and experiencing the rush of adrenaline during the chase, he now will possibly face the death penalty to be put to death in one of the U.S. maximum facilities. None of which are a good place to be incarcerated in especially at his age. Piss and vinegar will get you into a lot of trouble in prisons.

According to CGS,securing our climate can pay off for American families today.

A secure global climate doesn't require higher taxes or fees on Americans.The Healthy Climate and Family Security Act will return 100% of carbon auction proceeds to American families for the use of our natural resources.

Do You Vote in Elections? Well, You Should Vote in All Elections

3-31-2015 Democrats and Republicans have two very different visions for America’s future:

Democrats want to preserve Medicare and Social Security; Republicans want to cut and privatize these programs.

Democrats support economic policies that empower the middle class; Republicans support policies that help only the super-wealthy.

Democrats demand equality; Republicans enable intolerance.

Another difference: Republicans have their right-wing billionaire backers, while we have our grassroots members. That’s a good thing -- it keeps us accountable to our supporters. But it means we rely on you to stand up at crucial moments -- like now.

No one in political office has the right to lie or shade the truth to constituents!

Our current congressional members have been loud, abrasive and downright mean spirited and called out for their inaction in office. They are all known as "The Most Non-Working Congress in our nations history. I am not proud of that, but neither should you be proud of it. In fact, we all should be enraged enough to vote a different way in this next election. So start looking at people who tell the truth and who can back it up as truth. No one in political office has the right to lie or shade the truth to constituents!You certainly don't want your banker or car dealer to lie to you do you? So why do you let politicians keep getting away with lying to the American people?

Is Fluoride in Your Water Good for You?

3-24-2015Many people say yes. Not so fast there buddy lest you begin to know the real facts accoding to the Fluoride Action Network. Their contention thru research suggests that:

In the United States, health authorities call fluoridation “one of the top 10 public health achievements of the 20th century.” Few other countries share this view. In fact, more people drink artificially fluoridated water in the U.S. alone than in the rest of the world combined.

1. Most advanced nations do not fluoridate their water. In western Europe, 97% of the population has water without a single drop of fluoride added to it

2. Fluoridation proponents will sometimes say this is because Europe adds fluoride to its salt. Only five nations in western Europe, however, have any fluoridated salt.

3. The vast majority do not.

LGBT Discrimination in Indiana Arkansas

"At Gap Inc. and Levi Strauss & Co., we are proud to say we are open to business for everyone"

3-31-2015 As Indiana, Arkansas, and states around the country enact and consider legislation that perpetuates discrimination, we’re urging State Legislatures to stand up for equality by repealing and voting against these discriminatory laws.

These new laws and legislation, that allow people and businesses to deny service to people based on their sexual orientation, turn back the clock on equality and foster a culture of intolerance.

Discriminatory laws are unquestionably bad for business, but more importantly, they are fundamentally wrong. They must be stopped.

Immigration-No Room At the Inn -Texas

by Diane Knaus

7-7-2014 What does the birth and travels of Jesus have in common with our newest people immigrating to the U.S. in Exodus Style? Everything, because of the unanimus decision of King Herod in wanting to kill all first born males their lives were in danger. So too are our latest children arriving at the Texas border from their countries which are raviging families with fear mongering and violent behavior toward them.

Higher Vitamin D Levels Associated With Markedly Improved Survival in Patients With Advanced Colorectal Cancer

2-6-2015 ASCO Perspective: In addition to improved survival, high vitamin D levels were associated with a longer time for the cancer to become resistant to chemotherapy, suggesting that vitamin D could slow down the growth of the cancer or enhance the activity of the health treatment, said Smitha S. Krishnamurthi, MD, moderator of today’s presscast and ASCO expert.

“Further studies are needed to determine if the improved health survival is due to the vitamin D itself or to some other factor associated with having high vitamin D levels.”

A man named David

David Ebel of theSalvation Army 3-23-2015 There is a man named David who epitomizes the words "Give of Yourself". He has worked for the Salvation Army group for years as a chaplan and more. We met online because I had a question for him in my work as CEO of this web site. I emailed him recently to ask how he was doing because he is such a caring individual. The following is his answer.

Hi Diane, We requested to be sent to a small town in need that did not have a Salvation Army. We were sent to Barstow,California a year and a half ago in the high desert of the Mojave Desert. It is 40 miles from a mall and most shopping. The community has fallen on pretty desperate times with over 50% of the population is now on some sort of government aid. Jobs are quite scarce and the need for emergency food and utility assistance made us quite popular soon as we opened our pantry.

Save the Children Country Director Tom Skirrow said, “We are hearing reports that children are contracting water-borne diseases such as diarrhea and the longer these children have to drink contaminated water, the more likely it is they will become sick.” Save the Children has distributed more than 16,000 liters of drinking water to vulnerable communities and is preparing to ship 5,000 liters to nearby Tongoa Island.

NFL Embroiled in Controversy

Did you know The NFL is a Non-Profit organization?

2-18-2015 Did you know that the IRS considers the NFL a non-profit, tax-exempt organization? I just took action to demand that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell testify before Congress to justify the NFL's tax-exempt status. I think you should, too. I can't hardly believe that, especially since they have treated their athletes with so much disregard in the past by not taking proper care of their health. You can sign the petition here

Tim Cook Apple CEO and Personal Privacy in the Tech World

According to Tim Cook "We live in a world in which that information can make the difference between life and death," he said. "If those of us in positions of responsibility fail to do everything in our power to protect the right of privacy, we risk something far more valuable than money — we risk our way of life."

He continued technology "gives us the tools to avoid these risks. And it is my sincere hope that by using them and by working together we will do so." This year Cook expects Apple Pay to be able to process social security checks as well as pay for admittance to National parks and more.

Don't drink alcohol excessively in cold weather=frostbite

If you drink too much then go outside to shovel snow, you may not be able to feel your fingertips or other body parts then they will get frostbite. If you fall down in a snowbank and fall asleep you might even die of hypothermia if you have drunk too much.

"Put the 47 Republican Senators in Prison for Treason"

3-12-2015 Put the 47 republican senators in prison for treason. They have shamed the entire country and themselves behaving like spoiled rotten children who want their way no matter what. For them to have said our president does not have the right to make deals with countries is undermining his authority.

Furthermore according to legal authorities :That letter from the Arkansas Republican to the ayatollahs and other Iranian officials, critics say, is a violation of the 1799 Logan Act, which says starkly:

“Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.”
