Just like an unwelcome relative coming to visit, natural disasters make their appearance regardless. They don't care how prepared you are for their arrival. They come anyway and there was nothing you could do to stop them. In southeast Pennsylvania, hurricane Sandy made her appearance early Monday morning. Her arrival seemed to be nothing more than a drab, rainy morning, but by mid afternoon her disposition was becoming more apparent. She wasn't going to make this a pleasant visit. Just like her sister Irene, hurricane Sandy required a bit of preparedness. In our area we deal with power outages all the time that stem from ice storms to thunderstorms...etc. Below are a few tried and true methods we have used to weather storms in my area.
Any natural disaster should never be downplayed. The first thing I like to have on hand is water. Whether you buy bottled water from the store or supply yourself with fresh tap water, make sure you have enough for a few days. More is always better, but

Genetically modified organisms (or GMOs) are plants or meats that have had their DNA altered in a lab. These organisms have been altered in order to grow a product that might resist pesticides within its own tissue, may yield bigger crops, heartier fruits, or withstand an odd climate despite it being unnatural and completely experimental. These type of organisms are very common in the US, more so than most consumers are even aware of. The majority of corn, soy, cotton, and sugar beet crops grown in

Summary:Wreck-It Ralph (voice of Reilly) longs to be as beloved as his game's perfect Good Guy, Fix-It Felix (voice of McBrayer). Problem is, nobody loves a Bad Guy. But they do love heroes... so when a modern, first-person shooter game arrives featuring tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun (voice of Lynch), Ralph sees it as his ticket to heroism and happiness. He sneaks into the game with a simple plan -- win a medal -- but soon wrecks everything, and accidentally unleashes a deadly enemy that threatens every game in the arcade. Ralph's only hope? Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Silverman), a young troublemaking "glitch" from a candy-coated cart racing game who might just be the one to teach Ralph what it means to be a Good Guy. But will he realize he is good enough to become a hero before it's "Game Over" for the entire arcade?

Meditation as a practice is considered to have begun over 6000 years ago, and is a practice that takes many varieties of form in the present. Some meditation techniques involve focussing on the breath, such as Vipassna , while other practices advocate chanting of a mantra such as Om to focus the mind and keep it in the present.
These meditation practices are passive and take a lot of practice, although the benefits of mastering these specific types of meditation are long lasting and profound. These types of meditation are usually considered more spiritual than other types, although you can certainly practice these methods without a spiritual inclination.
Other types of meditation are more activity based - my sister meditates every day while washing dishes at the kitchen sink, as she allows her mind to de-focus and relax and finds this very soothing. There are also practices such as dynamic meditation, which involves shaking the body vigorously and making spontaneous sounds,Read More »from How Can Meditation Assist in Pain Management?

I must have been about 13 when my father and I were taking a drive and I mentioned to him something about life being fair…or needing to be in my opinion. He looked right at me as he always did when he wanted to impart some worldly wisdom and asked me whoever said life was supposed to be fair? I was very surprised, as I certainly did believe at that point that life was indeed supposed to be fair. I can't think of a more prominent arena for the concept of fairness to be played out than when it comes to siblings.
However, I have learned that as a parent treating kids equally is plain unrealistic: they come packaged with different temperaments, interests, and needs. So don't drive yourself too crazy trying to make things always fair. It just isn't realistic. Besides, real life really isn't fair. The trick is to minimize conditions that break down sibling relationships that can cause long-lasting resentment. The bottom line to this behavior problem: while some rivalry is plainRead More »from Five Ways to Reduce Sibling Rivalry
