What is wrong with the way regular clinics and primary physicians treat pain? Pain clinics are cropping up all over the country and this proliferation is raising questions as to their necessity? Some question even their legitimacy! Recently there have been headlines about how some are easy ways for those seeking illegal drugs by using pseudo legal means to obtain them. Of course no overworked and harassed doctor innocently write pain medicine prescriptions, or do they? News headlines show a few are charlatans and aiding and abetting illicit drug use. Is this true?
And if this is trure, how has this been allowed to happen? Aren’t doctors above such practices? How do legitimate pain sufferers who need extra help in relieving their pain find the help they need without making room for charlatans? As you see, questions arising from some of these clinics are giving all a bad name. And maybe that’s a good thing. Possibly they should never have tried to establish themselves as a separate entity from the regular doctor’s office and well established clinics. Most doctors in regular clinics who prescribe pain medications for their patients do so cautiously and reverently. They understand how it is needed and they also know its potential for abuse.
Before any of these questions can be answered, we must first separate the legitimate excuses for pain clinics from those that exist for cash only. The plain facts are some people do have intractable pain that need special consideration above and beyond what a regular MD is qualified to give. Certain types of pain where nerve damage is involved, I have learned, need a specialist who is knowledgeable in the intricacies of pain management possibly unknown to your regular internist, surgeons, and orthopedists. This would, at least in application for certification and training, be sufficient for further consideration.
Who are these pain specialists who know pain management above and beyond what a regular doctor does not know? An online article originating from Dundee University in Scotland has some explanations of this process and about pain specialists in general. Pain specialists, the true ones, are none other than anesthetists, the one who puts surgery patients to sleep. Their credentials are above approach and they are backed up by JRSM (Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine: Dept of Epidemiology and Public Health.)

Many of my visitors especially some of them, with a view to challenge astrology and make it as though it has no relevance, used to ask nasty queries. Some of the questions asked by them are as follows:
1. How astrologers can prove scientifically that the planets indeed affect us?
2. Planets are located some millions of miles away and how can they affect us?
3. Why should planet affect us and where is the source for them, as nothing is found in planets scientifically?.
Questions like this and they are so biased that whatever one can establish its truth. But I always used to approach astrology through astronomy, which gives many proving point for astrological relevance.
I will explain some of the astronomical features of planets ( Astrnomy means scientifically proven facts):
All Planets rotates on its own and also around the SUN in the Solar system. The planets rotate around the SUN due to Sun’s gravitational pull. Astronomy proves the point that eventhough planet SUN is 150 Million Kms and the farthest planet from SUN,namely Saturn of about 1250 million Kms, inspite of such huge distance there is gravitational pull. Similarly, from 150 Kms away the planet Sun, Earth gets the Sun rays within about 8 minutes. This means Sun rays reach us at such a speed which it is not possible for any human to understand. Similarly, Eclipses especially Solar is so deadly eventhough it is taking place millions of miles away and we feel the power of its rays during the period. So many warnings are given by scientist. It is an accepted and proved point that Moon has close relation with water (ocean). New moon and Full moon cycle makes people to watch its impact very practically.
In addition to this, there are so many things happening both in our Mother planet. In the celestial space, there are black holes, asteroids, planets bigger than SUN, space extending many million light years are all puzzling the scientists, as they do not have any parallel for humans to understand.
Therefore, we have to accept one truth which is that our knowledge on planets and the universe is nothing and we can never conquer the same nor will ever be able to understand the same. All are beyond Human’s reach and ability to learn.
These are the informations I gathered and used to teach my students who are all interested in learning astrology. Like space and astronomy, astrology is also very vast subject and no human can master the same. It one has interest, astrology is a life long research subject. No one can complete the same for generations.
Whether scientists are able to accept these facts on Planetary influence or not, it cannot be just like that dismissed, as astrology has many informations in it. Many things are not yet tested and it is an ongoing process for ever. No doubt that our great sages have done worderful work for the future generations. They have left great treasure for us. This is the truth on astrology.

WASHINGTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Wyoming’s top two youth volunteers of 2013, Darlee Hyatt, 18, of Riverton and Rachel Ehlers, 14, of Newcastle, were honored in the nation’s capital last night for their outstanding volunteer service during the 18th annual presentation of The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards. Darlee and Rachel – along with 100 other top youth volunteers from across the country – each received $1,000 awards and personal congratulations from Academy Award-winning actor Kevin Spacey and Olympic gold medalist Allyson Felix at an award ceremony and gala dinner reception held at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History.
“In fact, we sold all of our preordered gear and had to order more!”
The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards program, sponsored by Prudential Financial in partnership with the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP), named Darlee and Rachel Wyoming’s top high school and middle level youth volunteers in February. In addition to their cash awards, they each received an engraved silver medallion and an all-expense-paid trip with a parent to Washington, D.C., for four days of recognition events.
Darlee, a senior at Wind River Middle/High School, helped raise $28,000 over the past two years for veterans and people with cancer in her community by working on an annual week of fundraising activities at her school. The first year, when her school began planning an event to assist two local women who were fighting cancer, Darlee immediately jumped in to help. “I felt it was important to be part of a group who touched the lives of others in a positive way,” she said. The $10,000 raised was split evenly between the two women to help pay for treatment and other needs.
Darlee was even more motivated the following year when the school chose local veterans to be the beneficiaries of its fundraising, since her cousin had served two tours in Iraq. Darlee helped plan the week of fundraising activities, visited local businesses to seek donations, and helped conduct a silent auction during boys and girls basketball games. Again, the week produced $10,000, which went to support the families of two local military veterans. As the main organizer of this year’s event, the service week raised $8,000. “I love the idea of helping someone when they need it most,” she said.
Rachel, an eighth-grader at Newcastle Middle School, helped fight breast cancer by selling pink items such as socks, headbands, bracelets and bandanas during a lunchtime event at her school. As a member of IMPACT, a service group in her community, Rachel has volunteered to walk dogs for the Humane Society and play bingo at a local nursing home. But as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month approached in the fall of 2011, she longed to do something to combat a disease that has touched her family in a profound way. “My aunt is a breast cancer survivor and my grandma died of the disease,” Rachel said. “I saw how it hurt my mom when my grandma died. I know other people must have felt that same pain, so the sooner it can be stopped, the better.”
The high school in Rachel’s community had several breast cancer awareness events planned for October. But Rachel wanted to do something at her middle school, so she came up with the idea of selling cancer-related gear to support the cause. She recruited volunteers from IMPACT and spent half of September planning the event. After getting her principal’s permission to set up a booth, she ordered her items, set up posters to publicize the sale, and emailed pictures and a price list to students and staff at the middle and high schools. The sale was a big success. “Kids actually stood in line,” she said. “In fact, we sold all of our preordered gear and had to order more!” The effort raised both the middle school students’ awareness of breast cancer and $2,000 to help in the fight against this deadly disease.
“We commend these honorees not only for the impact of their service and their spirit of giving, but also for inspiring others to consider that they can make a difference, too,” said John Strangfeld, chairman and CEO of Prudential Financial, Inc. “We congratulate this extraordinary group of youth volunteers.”
“These students are fine examples of what is possible when young people roll up their sleeves and commit themselves to helping others,” said Denise Greene-Wilkinson, president of NASSP. “They have learned early that their contributions can make a real difference, and there is no limit to the great things they can achieve.”
Youth volunteers were invited to apply for 2013 Prudential Spirit of Community Awards last fall through schools, Girl Scout councils, county 4-H organizations, American Red Cross chapters, YMCAs and affiliates of the HandsOn Network. More than 28,000 middle level and high school students nationwide participated in this year’s program.
The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards program was created in 1995 to identify and recognize young people for outstanding volunteer service – and, in so doing, inspire others to volunteer as well. In the past 18 years, the program has honored more than 100,000 young volunteers at the local, state and national level.

You’ve seen it in your fruit drinks, your makeup, your weight loss pills, your vitamin supplements, and you’ve heard it called a superfood. It’s acai berry, and it’s the newest fad fruit that you know nothing about! Let’s do away with all the hype and take an honest look at this interesting fruit.
Acai (pronounced “ah-sigh-EE”) berries grow in Central and South America. They are small, purplish berries that are about an inch in diameter. They somewhat resemble grapes, except acai berries have a large seed in their centers. They are grown on acai palm trees and are in the same family as cranberries and blueberries.
Acai berries are loaded with antioxidants called flavonoids and anthocyanins. In fact, they have more antioxidants than cranberries, blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries. Acai berries also contain a high concentration of vitamins C and E. These antioxidants and vitamins are essential to fighting and preventing diseases like cancer and heart disease. They do this by preventing blood clots, relaxing the blood vessels, improving your circulation, and blocking carcinogens. The antioxidants in these berries also help fight the aging process. Due to its anti-aging properties, acai oil can now be found in cosmetics and beauty products. In addition to their high antioxidant content, acai berries contain plant sterols that help reduce cholesterol, promote prostate health, and lower cholesterol.
Acai berries are now touted by many weight loss companies as the best dietary supplement around. While they cannot work miracles, the amino acids, vitamins, minerals, and fiber that they contain may help increase your energy, boost your metabolism, and suppress your appetite.
1. In certain areas around the Amazon, acai berry juice is known as the “poor man’s juice.” It is incredibly affordable and often served from plastic bags.
2. The seed of the berry takes up about 80% of the fruit itself.
3. Many people say that acai berries have a chocolatey taste.
4. Oprah, Rachel Ray, and Dr. Oz have all publicly praised acai berries.
5. Brazilians believe that acai berries can boost your sex life and fertility.
