5-17-2013 According to the CDC:Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a condition in which the kidneys are damaged and cannot filter blood as well as possible.This damage can cause wastes to build up in the body and lead to other health problems, including cardiovascular disease (CVD), anemia, and bone disease. People with early CKD tend not to feel any symptoms. The only ways to detect CKD are through a blood test to estimate kidney function, and a urine test to assess kidney damage. CKD is usually an irreversible and progressive disease and can lead to kidney failure, also called End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), over time if it is not treated. Once detected, CKD can be treated through medication and lifestyle changes to slow down the disease progression, and to prevent or delay the onset of kidney failure. However, the only treatment options for kidney failure are dialysis or a kidney transplant.
Adults with diabetes or hypertension are at an increased risk of developing CKD. Other risk factors for developing CKD include CVD, obesity, elevated cholesterol, and a family history of CKD. The risk of developing CKD increases with age largely because risk factors for kidney disease become more common as one ages.
NASA Astronauts Back on Earth
5-14-2013 According to NASA, Expedition 35 Commander Kevin Chris Hadfield and Flight Engineers Tom Marshburn and Roman Romanenko landed their Soyuz TMA-07M spacecraft in southern Kazakhstan at 10:31 p.m. EDT Monday.

The trio launched aboard the Soyuz TMA-07M spacecraft from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan in December and spent 144 days living and working aboard the International Space Station.
Romanenko was at the controls of the spacecraft as it undocked at 7:08 p.m. Monday from the Rassvet module.
5-10-2013 According to Danielle Brian, Project On Government Oversight, You might want to make sure you’re sitting down for this one. You’ve probably heard the horror stories about unscrupulous mortgage servicing companies charging homeowners excessive fees and, in some cases, taking their homes through illegal foreclosures.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) recently asked two federal agencies for records that might shed light on these practices. Sounds reasonable to us, but these agencies, led by Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke and Comptroller of the Currency Thomas Curry, flat out refused to hand over the documents.
5-8-2013 The real situation is that a foreign born male over the age of 21 has killed three people and maimed over 200 more in Boston, Ma., during their marathon race. Why do we as a free country have to abide by his supposed religious background for burial while he has lived among us and joined us in citizenship and yet maimed and killed us?
Three Aressted Students Acted Normal Like Any Young Man Would
5-1-2013 It is possible that they lied about knowing things about the bombing, or lied to FBI authorities about what they knew, which is a crime. However,they did not think, they acted like immature 14 year olds and took things and did away with them to protect their friends. They did not consider the consequences at all, nor did they know any of the facts at the time, just their own suspicions. This is a normal reaction for younger boys to protect their friends, but not for twenty something year old men. They could go to prison for their actions, or at the very least a youth prison for a short period of time.
One of the students is an American. Two of the suspects student visas' are not valid, and could be deported at any time. There is no threat to the public regarding their information. The wife of the older brother is not a suspect at this time, but may have privileged information because her husband called her after his picture was on television. Yet, she could face some charges. Because of the FBI finding firworks residue alll over their apartment that makes one wonder how could she have not known anything was going on?
Fertilizer Plant Explodes in West, Texas 15 Killed
4-30-2013 West Chemical and Fertilizer Company plant exploded at least five city blocks of homes and business were burned out on April 19. Over 140 people are unaccounted for. The United States Geological Survey registered it as a 2.1-magnitude earthquake. Emergency personnel have been working around the clock to help the situation and get correct information sorted out.
Note that the plant had "not been inspected since 1985". A partil inspection in 2011 resulted in the company paying fines over $5,000.00. The real question is why was this plant left so long without an inspection? Why didn't the owners take better care of their plant because fertilizer is a known explosive production? Even if they were haphazard in their working conditions, any company would want to be in business with no major dangers to their emplloyees, or surrounding areas just for longevity and profits. From the outside looking in, the owners were irresponsible to say the very least. Local residents should be outraged as a full five blocks of business and homes were burned out from the blast.
5-1-2013 WASHINGTON -- NASA's Human Research Program (HRP) and the National Space Biomedical Research Institute (NSBRI) of Houston will fund 23 proposals to help investigate questions about astronaut health and performance on future deep space exploration missions.
The selected proposals are from 18 institutions in 14 states and will receive about $17 million during a one- to three-year period.
HRP and NSBRI research provides knowledge and technologies to improve human health and performance during space exploration and develops possible countermeasures for problems experienced during space travel. The organizations' goals are to help astronauts complete their challenging missions successfully and preserve astronauts' health throughout their lives.

Like minority and disabled rights, they will move forward. This does not mean there will not be a push back.

Reduce Gun Violence In America Today, Not Tomorrow
3-29-2013 The President Says "We ought to be ashamed to forget those children at Sandy Hook who died from gunshots within five minutes. I have not forgotten them I promise you, but you have to do some of the work yourselves.Nothing has been done in Washington at all, nothing, no new rules or restrictions have been passed at all.
According to Gabby Giffords: We've been running television ads in key states, and organized thousands of phone calls to critical committee members in the last twenty-four hours alone. Do your part, you must call your representative if you haven't already." This support must come from regular Americans like yourselves because unless it does, nothing is going to get done. The anger must come from the public, and the public must show it is alive.You cannot just sit back and wait for someone else to get this done. This is your country as well as mine.
2-28-2013 The Senate version of the Violence Against Women Act passed the House, after the House failed to pass its own version of the act.1 This means that all women—including LGBT, undocumented, and Native American women—will receive the protections offered by this bill. “Domestic violence is an issue that, sadly, affects all of our communities,” Castro, D-Texas, wrote in a statement after the bill passed. ”It is our duty to protect the victims of domestic violence and work to ensure that perpetrators are brought to justice.”
911 Gun Control and Taxes John Boehner and GOP Playing Chicken With Americans
2-25-2013 This is not a joke, they are really playing chicken and not serious about working with the country to provide solutions on the debt crisis, rather against it.The best thing you can do about it is to call their offices and bitterly complain about their inaction to solving the tax and gun control problems.
President O'bama said of gun control, "The families of Aurora deserve a vote. The families of Oak Creek, and Tucson, and Blacksburg, and the countless other communities ripped open by gun violence - they deserve a simple vote."According to the President, Colorado – a state that’s experienced two of the worst mass shootings in U.S. history – has already taken action to prevent future violence. State officials worked together to enact tougher background checks that help keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people without infringing on the rights of responsible gun owners. And if you want to do something about the gun permits being issued at gun shows and second hand sales from one person to another call the following number today.
Right now, 90 percent of Americans support background checks that will keep criminals and people who have been found to be a danger to themselves or others from buying a gun. Will you amplify our voices and tell your Senator that you are one of the over 90 percent of Americans that support universal background checks? Call 1-888-284-5479, or you can use the Americans for Responsible Solutions click-to-call tool and we'll make the connection for you:

Military Women Are More Likely to be Raped by One of Their Fellow Service Member, Than Being Killed in Combat
5-17-2013 Accordng to a new report from the Pentagon, shows that sexual assaults in the military increased by more than 30% last year.2 Worse? Less than 5% of military sexual assaults are ever prosecuted.
These women put their lives on the line for our country. The least we can do is make sure they get the justice that they deserve. So women here in the U.S. are treated just as badly as women in other countries as far as rape goes.
Angelina jolie Reveals Major Mastectomy
5-15-2013 angelina-jolie- announcing a major health challenge, she reveals her recent drastic double mastectomy because of a “faulty” BRCA1 gene.

According to the American Academy Pediatric Association, Gay Marriage is Good for Chldren, Because There are Two Adults There When Needed
3-4-2013 American Academy of Pediatrics, after an extensive review, declared that allowing gay and lesbian couples to marry is in the best interests of children. When critics worry this will lead to more adoptions by gay couples, they ofton ignore that the alternative many times is for these children to suffer in orphanages or in a flawed foster-care system.
Nine states now recognize gay marriage, while 30 states have constitutional amendments banning it and others are somewhere in-between. It seems most likely that DOMA will be sruck down as illegal and against the constitution. Most of the time the feds leave individual rights to the states themselves to work out. Will the Judges think to attempt to join two same sex individuals in the sacrament of marriage would be a sacrilege for me, or will they think it is their right if they want to get married? Will they think that the U.S. promotes freedom for all or just those they deem acceptable, or religious, or how they live by the bible? That basically is the main question that they will independently have to tackle in their minds. It seems like the public of opinion has already made their choices within many states who now recognize same sex marriages. Although the Bible illustratess one man and one woman, the bible is not the only religious law of the land in any country, nor does everyone believe in the bible. After all, the bible was written over many hundreds of years by many different authors, and who knows how accurate it really is?
3-27-2013 Lobbyists for Monsanto and others in the biotech industry have snuck a “poison bill” into a huge spending bill. Regrettably, the larger bill has been approved by Congress. Only the president of the United States can stop it from becoming law.
Section 735, the Monsanto Protection Act, is a small provision snuck into a 841 page “appropriations bill for the Department of Defense, the Department of Veterans Affairs and other departments and agencies for the fiscal year 2013”.

“Action is a great restorer and builder of confidence. Inaction is not only the result, but the cause, of fear. Perhaps the action you take will be successful; perhaps different action or adjustments will have to follow. But any action is better than no action at all.”
