Early intervention can be enormously helpful in the treatment of autism, but the condition has so far been difficult to screen for in children under 18 months.
Now, it may be possible to pick up warning signs earlier, with the help of a questionnaire for pediatricians to use developed by researchers at the University of North Carolina. The promising results of the tool were released July 13 on the university's Health Care page.
Using birth records, researchers sent the survey to North Carolina residents who had children nearing the age of 12 months. Nearly 700 parents completed the 63-question "First Year Inventory" (FYI) which asks about typical skill functions identifiable in 12-month-olds such as reflexes, social skills, and hearing-all associated with normal human development.
"Many of the parents at 12 months were not concerned about their child's development. They filled it out because they were helpful, not necessarily because they were worried about their child,"Read More »from New Early-Detection Tool for Autism on the Horizon
No matter how much I love the white meat of a chicken breast, when it comes to grilling season, chicken thighs nudge the white meat out of the running for favorite food ever. After all, chicken thighs are cheap, flavorful, and incredibly, deliciously crave-able when marinated right, then tossed on the grill. Growing up, my mom's go-to chicken thigh marinade was a mixture of soy sauce and 7-Up. I could swear there wasn't a single better thing to eat on the planet than those rich and buttery, soy-sauce salty, tossed-over-hot-coals chicken thighs.
Though my mom's recipe still remains a favorite family memory, here are 7 incredible, new ways to grill up chicken thighs this summer that might just take top honors for my favorite summer grill recipes!

Just a couple weeks ago American Apparel featured a 61-year-old woman in their ad campaign -- a pretty shocking move for a company who typically puts half-naked, young 20-somethings in their ads. The gray-haired model is the face of their new "Advanced Basics" campaign, aimed at an older audience. And it seems like this trend has taken off. Lanvin's new fall 2012 campaign features non-models of all ages (mere mortals like ourselves!) in the ads, including one especially chic 80-year-old woman.
Lanvin's designer Alber Elbaz told WWD, "I was interested to bring these clothes back to the street somehow, and seeing how they look on different ages, different sizes. It felt like a crazy family, and I like that." While it may seem bold, it's actually a pretty savvy move to put older women in fashion advertisements, because they're the ones buying the clothes. In fact, the National Retail Federation found that people aged 50-to-65Read More »from Is Putting Older Women in Fashion Ads the New Trend?

Well I did some inventory of my pallet stock and I need more pallets to begin my entertainment center project (http://blogspud.blogspot.com/2012/07/pallet-board-corner-entertainment.html). So I have to wait till I can re-assess my inventory after my next pallet pickup on Wednesday evening.
In the mean time however, I decided to post something that is not related to my pallet craft blog. Introducing my side (filler) blog, "Blast from My not so Distant Past!" I will be using this blog title to introduce a project from my past. So here goes.
My wedding cake table!
This is one of my earliest creations using my newly bought tools back in May 2011. The legs and table top I took from a fallen oak tree. I knew it would not last forever due to cracking and the fact that I cut it green, but it looked perfect for the wedding. The worst part of this project was hauling the trunk and top out of the woods, but with the assistance of my brother andRead More »from Wedding Cake Table Top!
My first finished project is part of my recycling pallet wood blog located here:
Recently I have set up a great deal with a local store to get their used pallets for free and all I have to do is pick em up. So I decided to start a blog about my work, but I wanted to bring each project by itself as well.
So as you see from the gallery I have built a rustic patio table and bench set with pallet wood. At first it was a little bit daunting deciding how I wanted to build the table and how it would look because I did not want a typical picnic table design. So after a few drawings I went for the design you see below. I started it out with retrieving the wood and making sure I didn't destroy the pieces in the process. I picked out each piece that I used for this project from like pallets that had similar dimensions and wood type.

How do you help your children manage school and extra activities?Read More »from How to Help Your Child Balance Sports and Life
When your child tells you he or she needs more free time, you may be inclined to chuckle. It's hard to imagine that the average six-year-old in first grade who plays soccer, or the 14-year-old high school freshman needs more free time. However, if you ask most kids in any age group if they wish they had more free time, the answer will most likely be yes. So, how do moms and dads who are struggling to balance their own hectic schedules help their kids balance sports and life?
Lead by example - The best way to teach kids to find a balance in their own schedules is to make time in yours. If the kids are always seeing mom and dad running around frantically, showing up late to every event, and forgetting essentials at home due to a time crunch, they'll fall into the same pattern.
Prioritize - Parents need to prioritize tasks and teach kids to do the same. Use a dry erase board, a chalkboard, or a shared family calendar to number and prioritize events, from the "must do" and "would like

Prolotherapy stimulates the body to repair the painful injuredRead More »from Dr. Albert is Back!!
