websites, TV No Comments

 That’s right- TV (and the internet) can improve your health!

I decided to bring back the blog (even required some scripting repairs) to bring you two health TV show websites.

On September 9th Season 5 of the famous Dr. Oz starts. He has useful stuff on the site, and some web exclusives.

I watched a good episode today of The Doctors TV. Tune in and get healthier today!

As always, you can find lots of health websites at my

Health Section. Once there click a link in the upper left corner of the topic that most interests you. Happy Labor Day!

Oil spill disaster. Lighter news- See Darius.

Earth No Comments

 View this interactive map on the BP oil spill disaster.  Video and More on thisMore needs to be done to protect our environment, marine and wildlife. If companies can not be trusted to do it on their own, then the government must make them do it.  Our natural resources must not be compromised for one companys profit. Such a disaster affects more than just one spot in the ocean or one company. It could contaminate our food supply, cost fisherman loss of jobs and kill wildlife. It has already contaminated our ocean, birds, and will likely damage land on the coast. I hope those whales get moved out of the area fast. BP needs to fix all the negative impact this disaster caused. Unfortunately some of the damage can never be fixable. See what the EPA is doing.

On to lighter news:

Another Earthquake

Earth No Comments

 Update March 16, 2010- Los Angeles area 4.4 moderate earthquake.

Read more on the 4.4 LA quake at CNN

March 14, 2010- Another earthquake occurred, this time in Japan but overall reports did not seem too bad this time. There has been a lot of earthquake activity, including the recent one in Chile that had generated a Pacific wide Tsunami warning, (that was less damaging than feared).

 Here is a nice overview on what causes earthquakes from MSNBC. I suggest to also click the earthquake tab before checking out the other maps. Check out the interactive  Earthquake map here

Another informative exhibit on earthquakes here

You can see recent earthquake activity at the USGS  

For Earthquake safety see Femas Earthquake section.
