ANTIOXIDANT FOUND IN WINE MAY HELP FIGHT ACNE-CAUSING ABCTERIA, RESEARCHERS SAY
 
"Wine drinkers, rejoice! Researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) have found that an antioxidant derived from grapes -- and also found in wine -- inhibits the growth of acne-causing bacteria.  

The study, published in the journal Dermatology and Therapy, found that combining the antioxidant resveratrol with benzoyl peroxide, a common acne medication, may enhance the drug’s ability to kill the bacteria, possibly leading to new acne treatments."

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY – SENIOR HEALTH CARE SOLUTION ACCORDING TO MAXINE

 SENIOR HEALTHCARE SOLUTION ACCORDING TO MAXINE
So you are a sick senior citizen and the government says there is no nursing home available for you – what do you do?

Our plan gives anyone 65 years or older a gun and 4 bullets. You are allowed to shoot 4 politicians – not necessarily dead!

Of course, this means you will be sent to prison where you will get 3 meals a day, a roof over your head, central heating, and all the healthcare you need! New teeth – no problem. Need glasses, great. New hip, knees, kidneys, lungs, heart? All covered. (And your kids can come and visit you as often as they do now).

And who will be paying for all this? The same government that just told you they cannot afford you to go into a home.

Plus, because you are prisoner, you don't have to pay any income taxes anymore.

ISN'T THIS A GREAT COUNTRY OR WHAT?

3 TIMES YOU SHOULD GET A SECOND OPINION ABOUT YOUR HEALTH

"When you go to the doctor with a medical problem, you want answers.

If you’re like most Americans, you trust your physician to deliver an accurate diagnosis, and are reluctant to second-guess her judgment. After all, she’s the one in the white coat with the expensive degree under her belt.

But what if a second opinion could change your diagnosis, your treatment and your health outcomes?"

"HOW LONG IS TOO LONG TO KEEP FOOD IN THE FRIDGE?"

This is a really great article.  Not only does the author discuss how to store different foods in the refrigerator or freezer, but she also talks about what the terms "Expiration", Best If Used By", and "Sell By" mean.  

Below the picture is an excerpt from the article as well as a link to the whole article.



Food poisoning and foodborne pathogens like listeria, salmonella and E. coli are real risks but knowing how long to keep and when to throw away food can be tricky. In fact, The Natural Resources Defense Council says more than 90 percent of Americans may be throwing out food unnecessarily because food label dates are confusing.
 
Plus, some people just wait too long to throw away refrigerated food. A recent survey by public health and safety organization NSF International showed that 47 percent of people discard food when they see mold or changes in color or texture.

QUESTION FOR THE DAY: ARE WE MEETING BENJAMIN FRANKLIN'S CHALLENGE?



237 years ago today, the U.S. Constitution was signed. 

Are we meeting Ben Franklin's challenge?

EVERY BABY BORN TODAY HAS A $39,500 DEBT

Thanks to our government’s inability to spend within its means, a baby born today will shoulder $39,500 worth of debt. And by the time that child is graduated from college, his share of the U.S. debt will be a sickening $142,000.


Do you think it’s time for the government to cut spending and rein in the debt?

"BLESS THE BEASTS AND THE CHILDREN"

Lyrics and Song from the Carpenters:

"Bless The Beasts And The Children"
Bless the beasts and the children
For in this world they have no voice
They have no choice


Bless the beasts and the children
For the world can never be
The world they see


Light their way when the darkness surrounds them
And give them love, let it shine all around them


Bless the beasts and the children
Give them shelter from the storm
Keep them safe, keep them warm

Light their way when the darkness surrounds them
And give them love, let it shine all around them


Bless the beasts and the children
Give them shelter from the storm
Keep them safe, keep them warm

"The Star-Spangled Banner is one of the most recognizable icons of the United States. Huge, vibrant, and rich in history, most Americans are familiar with the story of this particular flag: It's the one that flew over Fort McHenry the morning after the Battle of Baltimore during the War of 1812 and inspired Francis Scott Key to write the words that would one day become our national anthem. Although this flag has been around for 200 years now, there is more to this story that begs to be told."

5 FACEBOOK SETTINGS TO CHANGE NOW

Dear Readers:

I don't know how you feel about your internet privacy, especially with Facebook, but today I came across an article that you might want to consider reading about Facebook and what they do with your personal information.  Below is an excerpt from the article written by Kim Komando, and if you like to follow her advice you can click on the link below the picture to read the entire article.  


"If you missed the news, Facebook was recently valued at $201.6 billion. That's enough to slip it in at number 22 on the list of the largest companies in the world.

The dirty secret is that most of that value comes from ads, and to attract advertisers, Facebook sells them your information. It also adds features that annoy you, but play well with the ad companies. If you hear people insisting Facebook doesn't care about your privacy or experience, that's why.

In defense of Facebook, some features are ones you'd actually want to use - click here to learn 10 of them. Plus, it does give you the option to tip the balance of privacy back in your favor, if you know where to look.

Here are five features you want to change."
