Are microwaves a benign bastion of convenience or a sinister contributor to biological and nutritional damage? A growing percentage of people are now heeding the advice of holistic health experts and disposing of their microwaves due to the dangers of microwaved food.
I was stuck. By 22, I had hit rock bottom: so young to be so very unlucky in life. Everything in my world had turned muddy, murky, and broken. I knew my ea

Although we are trying our best to be organized and efficient with our time, our list of tasks and responsibilities keeps getting longer and longer.
Sentient desks, bunny comics, and neglected Pop Tarts. What more could a blog post need?
There have been quite a few news stories out there about the "mysterious" respiratory virus that has been found in 10 different states and has spread quickly to infect hundreds of children. The virus has caused these children to get very sick very quickly and many have required hospitalization for treatment. This virus has come out of nowhere and is spreading rapidly, considering the time of year (during the winter this kind of outbreak would be more expected due to staying indoors, sharing items in school, etc.) What is the scoop on this virus and how concerned should you be for your children? Let's not listen to the hype and break it down!
Since retiring from child protective services in Denver back in 2006, Wally tries not to think about abused children. But there's something about the Adrian Peterson case that makes it hard to ignore. It's one of those situations where there...

My New Adventures in America. Slowing down I turned the band. A car was standing on the shoulder of the road, a young woman lying on the ground next to it, another, standing above her, was waving frantically. I slammed on the break. Leaving my nine years old daughter in the car, my wife and I ran to see if we could help.
The smiling figure of a Victorian man dangles from two thin wires above the heads of visitors to the Otford Heritage Centre. It looks like he’s sitting in a flying goalpost, but he’s actual harnessed into the wooden frame of an early tri-plane. The man is Percy Sinclair Pilcher and his plane was called the…
We're always interacting with each other. Our lives collide, and leave imprints on others about our nervous laughters and sloppy hand gestures. Social psychology is a composition of unwritten social rules that structure our behaviour, things that are almost so obvious that we miss them completely. Let me enlighten you.
Monarch butterfly. They need milkweeds in order to breed.
I have snails in my garden. These aren't those snails. These are different snails that live about 40 minutes from my home. There's a spot of milkweeds in a certain field that I know about that host terrestrial snails, preying mantises, and various butterfly caterpillars. I just bought a Lensbaby. I figured these little guys would make perfect subjects for this lens. Let me know what you think.
In my memory Savannah was always hot and humid. Maybe that's why those giant oaks threw their dense shadows all over the town, cooled down the brutal summer heat. Streets were laid out neatly, on each sides stood elegant old style buildings and houses, which was why Savannah drew tourists. At intersections of streets there were garden-like squares, in which you would see people walking leisurely, or sitting on the benches chatting friendly, while feeding pigeons or squirrels. Everyday, colorful tour buses drove by with the speed of snails, some time even stopped for a while, let passionate tour guides to finish their fascinating stories. Old style coaches moved by now and then, also slowly, but those handsome horses would keep their paces brisk. The showy coach drivers in colonial costume occasionally took off hats, gently greeted to people with smiles. The crisp sound of horse hooves sometime could be heard from blocks away, made the town even quieter than it was.
London is perpetually a first-rate destination at any time of year, yet September is a truly special time for the city. The weather hovers between summer and fall with crisper weather and the last days of long sunlight before the short light of winter. Festivals add an extra special dose of celebration to the mix, so here are our picks for some extra-special activities and places to stay when you visit London in September 2014.
Recent studies at and Nutrition Research in Australia (C-PAN) gives me a clue as to why I have such a difficult time keeping our home tidy. Researchers found that dusting, vacuuming and scrubbing the bath generate physical health benefits yet the monotony of the menial work brings no mental health rewards. Now I know why I find it so difficult to do housework – it’s monotonous! Of course it’s monotonous! Oh, I’ve known a few people who actually enjoy housework, but I’ve just assumed they are mentally unstable…perhaps even more unstable than me.

A friend was asking the other day about the tenderest chicken breast he had ever had. Well, after some probing questions, we figured out that he had enjoyed a dish of

"Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.
I think that we all have some sort of goal, or desire, or wish that we would like to achieve some day. It's just human nature that we would have these individual feelings about something we would like to do, or become. Maybe it's something you have carried with you since childhood or just realized. Perhaps you were dealt a lousy hand as a child and always knew you wanted to change your life someday. We all walk around with hidden feelings, and sometimes we divulge them to our closest friends just to get their opinion about what we're thinking. This could be an admirable thing, but more times than not, it's an obstacle
Do you ever get that feeling, where you start to think you are not good enough? You look left and right and in your mind you begin to second guess your believes? Looking at other's achievements is putting the brakes on your own dreams?
