"Have you ever been at a hospital and wondered if the doctor, nurse, etc.. washed their hands between seeing you and the patient before you? Thanks to a new technology, we may now have an answer to that question. A hand hygiene sensor, developed by the University of Florida, can detect if the health care professional entering a patients room has washed their hands."

The waterways of the world are filled with fascinating, frightening, and anomalous creatures. These five have amazing mouths.
The Alligator Gar is a fresh water fish that is native to North American. It is the largest of the gar species. Unlike other gar relatives, it has two rows of large teeth in the upper jaw. The alligator-like teeth and long snout easily explain the name. Amazingly, it can live for around two hours out of water. It is not odd for this fish to weight 200-300 pounds and grow to 8-10 ft in length. The Alligator Gar relies on ambush to kill prey. However, despite rumors of being a man killer, it is not an aggressive species by nature and prefers solitude. My husband caught a five ft Alligator Gar in Mississippi, and I can attest that the teeth and size make this one intimidating fish.
Now, read about the other four amazing fish at Triond: Five Fish With Amazing Mouths.

How often do you read a poem and wonder : What was the author trying to convey? What feeling did he want to leave me with? What was the purpose or origin behind the words? I think a good poet never leaves those questions unanswered. For example, it is fine to write a poem about the gum on your loafer as a reflection on how sticky it is to tread through life. However, the real meaning is all to often lost in poor translation by the author. All the reader takes away is that the author is tired of stepping in gum.
Of course, we are all going to take away a little something different away from every poem, but when that last word is read, then the reader should feel something and have a clear sense of purpose. No one seems to leave me with that clarity like my friend, Bullwinkle Muse. He is not only a wordsmith…..he is an artist when it comes to giving words a purpose and feeling.

"......The commonly accepted antidepressant medications and therapies are just often out of reach for those without insurance or monetary means.However, there are some interesting studies out there about some different and often cheaper techniques that are being used to assist in the treatment and management of depression. Again, this is not a substitute for medical opinion, diagnosis, or treatment. It is just an information guide for potential options to speak with a health care provider about.

By: Jo Oliver"We all remember the off color, no pun intended, remarks that Don Imus made. It resulted in him loosing his job and the near ruin of his career. Well, this weekend Jamie Fox had one of the crudest and atrocious dialogues that I’ve ever heard. However, the news and the public seems to be writing it off as just harmless “humor” from a shock jock.
The weekend “Foxxhole” Sirius Radio show had a dialogue break out between Jamie Foxx and his posse about Miley Cyrus. Miley was brought into the conversation because she recently posted on a social network site about her ire over not being allowed backstage at the Grammy’s to meet the band, Radiohead. The conversation about sixteen year old Miley Cyrus suddenly went from mildly funny to raunchy, racist, and repulsive............"

“Bella is a perfect character (“Mary Sue”) that Meyer hides by calling her clumsy.”
1. Bella is not a perfect character. She comes from a broken home, hasn’t seen her father in years, and she is shy and awkward. The idea that she is a perfect character is clearly negated by the mere fact that she attempts suicide. Perfect people would never feel so unworthy of life....."

The clerk turned to ask the owner who was a few feet away working at the pharmacy cubicle. I heard the owner in a loud voice state that my mother could have anything in the store that she wanted and in any quantities that she needed. He also told the clerk not to ask him about this again.
My mother used this pharmacy for over 50 years. I have used them for more than 30 years. Naturally, I recommend the pharmacy to others. In my mother's declining years, she often stressed to be certain to pay any bill at the pharmacy upon her death. During the last year of my mother's life, her pharmacy bill averaged about $600 per month. I paid the bill.
Now, many Americans are facing difficult times. How have lenders and big business responded? They are so afraid of losing money that they are denying credit to those who need it most....."

1 cup of wild rice (uncooked)
½ cup of chopped onion
½ cup of butter
¼ cup of flour
1 (6 oz.) can of mushrooms drained but reserve the liquid

¼ cup of diced pimentos
2 tablespoons of snipped parsley

¼ teaspoons of pepper
So I ask you. Why do many people try to accept writting on sanskrit, dated 6000 years ago referring to biblical verses, rather that the cave art that has been dated back several more thousands of years?
So what do you believe? Here are two prime examples of Paleolithic Art that occured several thousands of years before creation..."
First of all, Nadya doesn’t have a job. She told Ann Curry that for the last ten years she has been living off of $168,000 dollars worth of disability payments totaling $168,000 and around $50,000 in student loans. She adamantly denied any welfare assistance. IShortly afterwards, the media reported that Nadya Suleman receives $490.00 a month in food stamps. Her publicist responded, "She (Nadya) doesn't regard that as welfare, but as payments available to people with needs." Ah….what does she think the definition of welfare is? Welfare, according to Encarta, is: “aid to people in need. Financial aid and other benefits for people who are unemployed, below a specific income level, or otherwise requiring assistance, especially when provided by a government agency or program.”
Secondly, Medi-Cal, California’s version of health care for the poor, paid for the prenatal care, the enormous cost of the birth, and will pay an estimated 1 million dollars for the eight infants neonatal intensive care unit stay. Of course, if there are any lasting medical conditions, diseases, or disorders Medi-Cal will also have to cover the treatment for those as well. Again, if this doesn’t classify as welfare, then what does?......"
The Republican party has finally realized, albeit a day late and a dollar short, that they strayed from their conservative base principles in 2008. It has also finally dawned on the party that the economy did, and will for several more years, overshadow all other issues.
I really do think the GOP is finally catching on. If the economy is the major issue….then you don’t nominate a candidate that 6 months prior to the nomination tells a newspaper “I am not an economy expert. I do not know anything about the economy; that is why I have advisors.” - like McCain did. Instead, you nominate a candidate that has spent his entire life engrossed in economics and has an actual working knowledge of economics.
In my opinion, the GOP had their perfect candidate in 2008, but was too worried whether or not he wore magic underwear.
