PETERSBURG, Fla. - The morning flag ceremony is a tradition for students and parents at St. Pete's Canterbury School. Ed Woodward,37, brings his five-year old son, Tylor, every morning.

The gathering is a lesson about the importance of character, a lesson the Woodward family has learned together. ...
They want Obamacare subsidies, no matter what
Post Date: 2015-01-28 11:18:56 by Willie Green
They break it? You need to fix it. A strong majority of Americans would want officials to restore often-significant financial aid given to Obamacare customers in much of the United States if the Supreme Court rules the assistance is illegal, a new survey shows. The Kaiser Family Foundation poll released Wednesday underscores the potential political peril Obamacare foes may face if the high court case goes in their favor, and subsidies for millions of insurance customers are ended by summer. The poll reflects the fact that even as the Affordable Care Act continues to be viewed negatively by more Americans than those who view it positively-46 percent to 40 percent-there is stronger ...

Ever wonder what makes up highly popular fast food, such as McDonalds chicken nuggets or french fries? If the fast food giants recently launched transparency campaign tells us anything, its that the public is increasingly demanding truth and change. But what McDonalds truth campaign isnt telling us is that much of its food is lathered in questionable, health-compromising ingredients. In the most recent transparency video from McDonalds, Grant Imahara explains that there are 19 ingredients in Americas favorite fries, one of which is polydimethylsiloxane, which is used in the production of silly putty.

The day I ate pot candy and ended up in hospital
Post Date: 2015-01-24 22:53:10 by Gatlin
Considering that chocolate is part of my daily diet, it was no surprise that I took a bite out of a random piece that I found sitting on my kitchen counter that day. It tasted terrible kind of minty so I spit out most of it. It was a busy day: Not only was I preparing for a large Labor Day party at my home, but I also planned to spend a few hours helping my church get ready for a huge Labor Day yard sale. When I started feeling a little dizzy and lightheaded, I ignored it and kept on working. I had felt similar to this a few weeks earlier because of dehydration, so I figured it would pass. I continued setting up for the party. The feeling persisted and increased a little in ...

One of the most promising new treatments for Alzheimer's disease may already be in your kitchen. Curcumin, a natural product found in the spice turmeric, has been used by many Asian cultures for centuries, and a new study indicates a close chemical analog of curcumin has properties that may make it useful as a treatment for the brain disease. "Curcumin has demonstrated ability to enter the brain, bind and destroy the beta-amyloid plaques present in Alzheimer's with reduced toxicity," said Wellington Pham, Ph.D., assistant professor of Radiology and Radiological Sciences and Biomedical Engineering at Vanderbilt and senior author of the study, published recently in the ...
Obamacare penalty may come as shock at tax time
Post Date: 2015-01-19 12:54:16 by Operation 40
Obamacare penalty may come as shock at tax time Those Americans who didnt get health insurance last year could be in for a rude awakening when the IRS asks them to fork over their Obamacare penalty and it could be a lot more than the $95 many of them may be expecting. The Affordable Care Act requires those who didnt have insurance last year and didnt qualify for one of the exemptions to pay a tax penalty, which was widely cited as $95 the first year. But the $95 is actually a minimum, and middle- and upper-income families will actually end up paying 1 percent of their household income as their penalty. TurboTax, an online tax service, estimated that the average ...

Iowa Man Who Fought to Use Marijuana Oil on Rare Cancer Dies
Post Date: 2015-01-16 13:59:53 by Deckard
An eastern Iowa man who was convicted late last year of growing marijuana that he used to treat his rare form of cancer has died. Benton Mackenzie, 49, died Monday at his home in Long Grove, near Davenport, his mother Dottie Mackenzie confirmed Tuesday. He had been growing marijuana to create cannabis oil that he consumed and applied to tumors caused by his angiosarcoma, a rare cancer of the blood vessels that he was diagnosed with seven years ago. Mackenzie said his self-treatment from the oil had prolonged his life and made some of the skin lesions disappear. Little research has been conducted on the effect of cannabis oil on this form of cancer, though doctors don't discredit ...

Top Doctor Exposes Monsanto As The Cause Of A Huge Autism Spike
Post Date: 2015-01-13 21:37:26 by Deckard
Glyphosate found to be directly responsible for the terrifying rise in autism, food allergies, breast cancer, liver and kidney damage and more > MIT Doctor Stephanie Seneff, one of Americas top scientists, has exposed a direct correlation between Monsanto, autism, and many other relatively new health conditions, such as gluten intolerance. In 1970, autism was extremely rare: just one child in every 10,000 had the condition under normal environmental circumstances. Last year this had risen to an estimated 1 in 68, which is a sharp rise that needs to be accounted for. Seneff looked at autism rates in the first grade of the school system and found a direct correlation ...
The Liberal Health Care Dream BLOWS Up!
Post Date: 2014-12-29 17:41:32 by CZ82
The Liberal Health Care Dream BLOWS Up! By Onan Coca, 29 December 2014 Senator Ron Johnson has published an excellent post-mortem on the failed experiment that was socialized health care. Over at his personal Senate blog, Senator Johnson strips down the Obamacare law and shows how it has failed in every respect. You can find Senator Johnsons full examination of Obamacare here: Vermont is a model for America on health care, the Wall Street Journal sensibly pointed out earlier this week. Thats because Vermont is where the purest progressive version of ObamaCare has imploded. Vermonts Democrat Governor Peter Shumlin (at right) ran for election in 2010 ...
MSNBC Reporter: Gruber Comments Confirm ‘All The Worst Suspicions Republicans Had’ About Obamacare [VIDEO]
Post Date: 2014-11-17 20:42:36 by out damned spot
The panel of MSNBCs The Cycle agreed that the recent flurries of insulting and impolitic videos of Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber was horrible press for the law, with MSNBC reporter Alex Seitz-Wald saying it confirmed all the worst suspicions that Republicans had about Obamacare. HOST TOURÉ: I think that Grubergate is probably the dumbest self-inflicted wound to happen to Obamacare since the rollout of Obamacare. He calls voters dumb, and he contributes to this notion they had to be secretive in order to get this thing passed. Does this become a lasting stain on the way that people perceive this whole law, do you think? SEITZ-WALD: Well, ...

Congressional Republicans seized Wednesday on controversial comments made by a former health-care consultant to the Obama administration, with one leading House conservative suggesting that hearings could be called in response as part of the GOP effort to dismantle the law in the next Congress and turn public opinion ahead of the 2016 election. "We may want to have hearings on this," said Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), an influential voice among GOP hardliners and a member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, in an interview at the Capitol. "We shouldn't be surprised they were misleading us." The firestorm began when a video emerged showing Jonathan ...

A Virus Found In Lakes May Be Literally Changing The Way People Think
Post Date: 2014-10-30 15:36:47 by out damned spot
While conducting a separate experiment, a group of scientists from Johns Hopkins and the University of Nebraska accidentally discovered something unexpected and potentially disturbing. A virus was living in the mouths and throats of a good portion of the people in the study, a virus that the researchers didn't think was capable of infecting humans. Worse still, it seemed to be slowing some of the subjects' mental abilities, especially their ability to process visual information. The surprising part about this for researchers was that a microscopic organism that we thought could infect only algae plants was living in about 40% of the small number of people tested. ...

Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen said Thursday he would raise his Ebola- fighting investments to $100 million, with programs to train doctors in Massachusetts and to build special containment units to evacuate any who get infected. Allen, the shyer sidekick of billionaire philanthropist Bill Gates, wants to use the cash both to strategically help the fight against Ebola and to attract even more money.
