A diagnosis is an important piece of the puzzle when we try to help kids with disabilities learn how to function. Many parents are relieved when they get a diagnosis for their acting-out, “problem child” because they see it as a guideline for the future. They think, “Now we’ll know what to do; this is it—we’ll finally get our child the help he needs.” But parents are often left with the fact that simply having a diagnosis doesn't necessarily mean they will be able to get help improving their child’s behavior, or get them the skills they need to learn in order to function successfully.

Are Obesogens Making You Fat?
By Kelley Herring
It's estimated that 300 million people in the world are obese.
While we know that eating too much food (and the wrong kind, at that) and not getting enough exercise are the primary causes of the obesity epidemic, researchers have discovered another factor: obesogens.
Obesogens are endocrine disruptors that affect the way the body uses fat. They also affect the distribution of fat and the development of sexual characteristics.
Here are the top three obesogens:
* Bisphenol-a (BPA) - found in plastics with recycling codes 3 and 7 and in liners of cans
* Organotins - biocides found in conventionally grown produce
* Phthalates - found in personal care products like nail polish, shampoo, lotions, perfumes, etc., as well as plastics
You may get only a small amount of these obesogens, but their effects are cumulative. To protect yourself, follow these rules:
1. Eat only organic foods that are not treated with pesticides.
2. Buy canned foods in BPA-free cans. Vital Choice and Eden Foods are two companies that certify their can liners are safe.
3. Drink spring water in safe BPA-free bottles or filter your water using reverse osmosis and store it in glass containers.
4. Read the labels on personal care products carefully, and choose organics. Better yet, put on your skin only products made with ingredients that you would put in your mouth.
5. Avoid plastics. The "new car smell" is a telltale sign that phthalates are present.

In this 7-part program you'll learn how to protect your health and optimize your weight by maximizing the nutrients in your food.

1934 : Dust storm sweeps from Great Plains across Eastern states
On this day in 1934, a massive storm sends millions of tons of topsoil flying from across the parched Great Plains region of the United States as far east as New York, Boston and Atlanta.
At the time the Great Plains were settled in the mid-1800s, the land was covered by prairie grass, which held moisture in the earth and kept most of the soil from blowing away even during dry spells. By the early 20th century, however, farmers had plowed under much of the grass to create fields. The U.S. entry into World War I in 1917 caused a great need for wheat, and farms began to push their fields to the limit, plowing under more and more grassland with the newly invented tractor. The plowing continued after the war, when the introduction of even more powerful gasoline tractors sped up the process. During the 1920s, wheat production increased by 300 percent, causing a glut in the market by 1931.
That year, a severe drought spread across the region. As crops died, wind began to carry dust from the over-plowed and over-grazed lands. The number of dust storms reported jumped from 14 in 1932 to 28 in 1933. The following year, the storms decreased in frequency but increased in intensity, culminating in the most severe storm yet in May 1934. Over a period of two days, high-level winds caught and carried some 350 million tons of silt all the way from the northern Great Plains to the eastern seaboard. According to The New York Times, dust "lodged itself in the eyes and throats of weeping and coughing New Yorkers," and even ships some 300 miles offshore saw dust collect on their decks.
The dust storms forced thousands of families from Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Colorado, Kansas and New Mexico to uproot and migrate to California, where they were derisively known as "Okies"--no matter which state they were from. These transplants found life out West not much easier than what they had left, as work was scarce and pay meager during the worst years of the Great Depression.
Another massive storm on April 15, 1935--known as "Black Sunday"--brought even more attention to the desperate situation in the Great Plains region, which reporter Robert Geiger called the "Dust Bowl." That year, as part of its New Deal program, President Franklin D. Roosevelt's administration began to enforce federal regulation of farming methods, including crop rotation, grass-seeding and new plowing methods. This worked to a point, reducing dust storms by up to 65 percent, but only the end of the drought in the fall of 1939 would truly bring relief. source..

My husband is really trying to lose all the fat that he put on this winter. We are thinking about get a new treadmill. But treadmills can be expensive if you get one of decent quality. I know that if we can put one in our basement I will use it everyday after work. I am inspired watching The Biggest Loser on TV and they spend a lot of time on treadmill and they really lose a lot of weight. Also, next winter when it is cold outside we will be able to keep exercising and keep those unwanted pounds off.
I sought the Lord, and He heard me. — Psalm 34:4
Jane Welsh, secretary to Scottish essayist Thomas Carlyle (1795-1881), married him and devoted her life to him and his work. He loved her deeply but was so busy with his writing and speaking that he often neglected her. Some time into their marriage, she became ill and suddenly died.
In a new book by John Ortberg, I read that after the funeral Thomas went alone to Jane’s room and looked at her diary. He found these words that she had written about him: “Yesterday he spent an hour with me and it was like heaven. I love him so.” On another day, she wrote. “I have listened all day to hear his steps in the hall, but now it is late. I guess he will not come today.” He wept brokenly, realizing his neglect of her and her desire just to talk with him.
As I read that, I couldn’t help but think, God loves me dearly and waits for me to fellowship with Him. How many days do I forget him?
The Lord welcomes our worship, our prayer, our praise,. He has told us in His Word to pray all the time (1 Thess. 5:17). As He did with the church in Laodicea in Revelation 3, Christ knocks on the door of our heart and patiently waits (v. 20). He listens attentively for our call, our cry, our prayer. How often does He wait in vain? — Dave Egner
We can know that God is watching,
Always present, everywhere,
And with hope and joy and patience
He is waiting for our prayer. — Roworth

As her man lies unconscious on the canvas just yards away, the worry and distress of Ricky Hatton's fiancée Jennifer Dooley is all too plain to see.
Seconds earlier, the former college lecturer let out an ear-piercing scream as the Mancunian boxer was floored for the third and final time by Filipino Manny Pacquiao.
Wearing a close-fitting red dress, Miss Dooley gripped the back of the seat in front of her for support before turning to Hatton's brother's girlfriend, Jenna Coyne, with her hand over her mouth in horror as Hatton, nicknamed The Hitman, remained flat on his back on the canvas for three worrying minutes.
