It’s that time of year when we look back at the past year and come up with a plan to make the New Year even better.10 Green New Year’s Resolutions for 2013 | December 28, 2012 | Greer D. Hospedales, One Green Planet | Resolutions are usually full of more hope than reason. It is my view that the more doable, attainable and inspirational the resolution, the more achievable it is. This way we accomplish something instead of nothing and are better off for it. Read more...

The holiday season in general -- and New Year's Eve in particular -- is rife with opportunities to drink alcohol -- and to overdo it.The Effects Of Alcohol In The Body (INFOGRAPHIC) | 12/28/2012 | ...alcohol, even in the smallest doses, affects nearly every system in the body, from the brain to circulation to immunity. And while at low to moderate doses, alcohol does seem to provide certain health benefits -- including a longer life and a healthier heart -- at higher doses, drinking carries with it the risk for long-term effects and permanent damage.

The effects are instant and tangible, with the power to reveal realms in our consciousness we may not have known existed. That's because rhythm and harmony are more than musical elements--they are the energetic foundation of life, nature, our universe. Their vibrations can expand the heart, transform the mind, and heal.

When kids get bullied for health problems: advice for parents | Deborah Kotz, Globe Globe | 12/26/2012 | Of course, bullies need no reason at all to pick on a weaker child, but a new study published in the journal Pediatrics finds that the prevalence is particularly high in kids who have food allergies and that nearly a third of them are teased and taunted for their allergies sometimes having offending foods thrown at them.

The Marijuana-Psychosis Connection Goes Both Ways In Teens | Alice G. Walton | FORBESWOMAN | 12/26/2012 | ...authors say that a person with psychotic symptoms might use marijuana to “improve their mood or to control one’s feelings, boredom, social motives, improving sleep, anxiety and agitation.” Of course, they do add that these individuals might just smoke pot for the same reasons that “normal” people do – “‘to get high’, relax and have fun.” On the flipside, pot smoking could also damage the developing brain, since the teen-age is a “particularly vulnerable period for the effects of cannabis.” Read more...

EDITOR'S COMMENT: As previous article states, marijuana has a "feel good" effect for many. Yet I have to agree that its use in teens can and often does impede abilities to study and succeed during development years. An Ancient American Tribe [confidential please] would use this "special plant" once a year for ceremony, and younger members would wait until "adulthood" to partake in this ceremony. This way it gave children a better chance at development, so they could know the difference, then it was put down by everyone until the next year's ceremony. This way cannabis was considered with reverence and respect, not just as a drug to be used and abused.

Christmas Tree

My wish is for all to have a wonderful experience on this special day of celebration, gift, and food sharing. This goes beyond the Christian traditional values, a day of remebrance, embracing family / friends, and simply saying "Thank You" to all those making this day special by honoring the re-emergence / ressurection of the Sun giving us life from its lowest ebb. Merry Christmas on this day honoring the "Birth of the Christ" that is united with ALL our hearts and souls!!!

Edwarda and Colleen visit with Santa Claus. It was during Christmas break in 1969 that Edwarda fell into a coma.Comatose since Christmas 1969: A tale of unconditional love and miracles | Wayne Drash, CNN | December 24, 2012 | Thousands of people -- from Japan to Australia, from Italy to Canada -- took the pilgrimage to the O'Bara home, inspired by the devotion of her mother. They were drawn too because they believed Edwarda had miracle healing powers: A woman with an inoperable brain tumor was cancer-free months after she touched Edwarda. Two girls with cystic fibrosis were apparently healed in the months after visiting her room. Even skeptics said they felt a strange aura when they walked into the North Miami home. Read more...

Read more...

EDITOR'S COMMENT: What is this World coming to, when FDA are debating to allow one of the most debilitating and addictive drugs ever formulated get cleared for usage, yet an innocent flower from cannabis is considered criminal in most States? When will we have real justice? An ancient standard: All plants have a right to life, and we are privileged to utilize them for their best purpose. Even the natural opium poppy drippings, containing opioids used to manufacture these "synthetic drugs" is not nearly as dangerous as the chemical derivatives.

EDITOR'S COMMENT: After decades of "suggesting" this to people, how many realize that simple discipline involving avoidance of foods / drugs exacerbating heart disease is your best medicne? How many are actually willing to make the change? It's really difficult to tell a person "See, I told you" after they die. There is no time like now to jump on a band wagon headed for healthy nutrition without all the greasy junk foods.
