Veronica Callahan, Executive Director of the Family Economic Success Program, says that a person who tracks their spending for one month will find an area where they could save money. Many people are shocked to see that the little expenses, such as buying a daily cup of coffee on their way to work, can really add up. Budgeting is a simple way to balance monthly income against monthly living expenses. Individuals as well as families that follow a monthly budget plan are better able to save money for unexpected expenses.

Veronica Callahan, Executive Director of the Family Economic Success Program, said that thousands of dollars of Earned Income Tax Credit monies are unclaimed each year. Many people who prepare their own taxes are either unaware of or uneducated on some the tax credits that are available. The 2009 tax year, through the help of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, has a lot to offer folks that have made energy improvements to their homes as well as those who have education expenses. Various programs are available for low to moderate income taxpayers that will prepare and file their tax returns for free.

Gretchen Shearer, Early Childhood Mental Health Consultant for Stark County Childhood Resiliency Project, talked about the effects that the economy can have on the entire family. Parents tend to want to protect their children by not talking to them about the job loss or the financial crisis that has affected the family. Parents find it stressful during this time to tell children that they cannot engage in some school activities that require fees because the budget does not allow for it. It is important for families to have age appropriate conversations with their children to make them aware of current situation and to assure them that they not the reason that daddy or mommy is upset or sad.

Aimee Belden, Director of ystark!, talked about the need to retain young people in the area. Young people play an important role in the economic future of their community. They are technologically more advanced than their elders and bring with them fresh ideas for economic development and new programs that will attract others to the area as well.

Robert Fenn, Public Affairs Specialist for the Social Security Administration, shared the history of the Social Security Administration as well as some of the changes that have occurred in the past 75 years. Everyone that works pays social security tax and earns credits that qualify them for benefits. Benefits could include a monthly stipend upon retirement or disability and medical coverage. Benefits may also be transferred to family members upon death of the individual that the credit.

Marcella Martell, Registered Dietitian at Aultman Hospital, says that children cannot make healthy food choices if their parents do not bring healthy foods into the home. A lot of things such as not living in safe neighborhoods where they can go out and play, and the over use of computers and video games as well as watching too much television have contributed to the childhood obesity problem. Young people are also drinking too many sugary drinks such as sodas, fruit drinks and sports drinks. Children need water and milk and fruits and vegetables as well as role models to help them battle obesity.

Susan Lowery O‟Connell, Early Childhood Mental Health Coordinator at the Mental Health and Recovery Services Board of Stark County, says that very young children use aggression as a means of communicating, not necessarily because they are aggressive. Children who have untreated conditions such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder will often display aggressiveness. Aggressive children tend to not develop friendships and have poor grades and are likely to abuse substances as they get older. Parents, caregivers and teachers need to teach children at a young age that aggressive behaviors will not be tolerated.

Boy scouts today are taught leadership skills and values that remain with them throughout their life. Kids that are actively involved in scouting are more likely to be leaders in their schools and their communities. Joy In Our Town # 1467 28:45 13:00 L PA/O 03/29/2010 11:30 AM Many children today are being raised by their mothers in single parent homes. Darrick Griffin, Preventative Specialist for Urban Ounce of Prevention Services, Inc., tells that young men need the positive influence of another male, particularly their father. Children that do not have father figures are more likely to get involved with alcohol and tobacco and other drugs. Alexander Cagle, Program Coordinator, teaches kids how to deal with violence and avoid alcohol and other drugs. Most kids when aware of dangers will make positive decisions. Evaughn Cagle, Executive Director, says that when kids are involved in positive activities they achieve better grades in school and become leaders in their community. 700 Club CBN NewsWatch 1:00:00 5:00 REC PA/O/E 3/10/2010 3:00 PM #031010 Mark Martin, CBN News Reporter , says that children are spending more time exploring technology than ever before. New information indicates more than 93 percent of kids are online, not just at home. For many parents this can be a nightmare. But a new safety program designed just for mom and dad could help. "Internet Safety 101" includes a DVD teaching series and other resources put together by Internet safety expert Donna Rice Hughes, from the organization "Enough is Enough." The purpose of the program is to keep young Web users away from Internet threats like pornography. "It is graphic," Ernie Allen, president of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, emphasized. "It is explicit. It is deviant. It's aberrant. Kids are seeing content that no 12 or 13-year-old is mentally, psychologically, or emotionally prepared to deal with." Child psychiatrist Dr. W. Dean Belnap said pornography actually shuts down a part of the brain. If parents don't know what to look for or how to protect their kids online, a click of the mouse can usher in a nightmare. Various partners, including the U.S. Department of Justice and America Online, helped with the Internet Safety 101 project. A study found one in five children under the age of seven use the Internet without parental supervision. Mobile devices that kids can use to access the Web make it more crucial for parents to establish safety rules and control content. Alicia said her parents were clueless about her online interactions with the sexual predator. She wonders if her kidnapping could have been prevented by a training tool like "Internet Safety 101." "Know what your kids are doing online and stay engaged with them," Hughes told CBN News. "Recognize that you can't do it alone. You need some help." That help is definitely needed in a society where porn is free, and predators can gain access to your kids, even inside your home.

Andrew Hayes attended college on a full academic scholarship and graduated with honors earning a master‟s degree and had a promising career yet today he cannot gain employment because of his decision to get into his car and drive after drinking alcohol. Although there were no fatalities as a result of his recklessness, the felony conviction ended his career. His goal as a Motivational Speaker for SelfHope is to teach high school and college students about the „perils and by-products of drinking and driving‟ by sharing his life story. He ensures students that they don‟t need to test the waters as he has already done that for them.

Dependency is the idea that a person has to have alcohol and will do anything to get it. As the addiction progresses the amount of alcohol needed to achieve that „high‟ increases. A person has reached the stage of full blow alcoholism when they begin to experience blackouts; they fall asleep after consuming large quantities of alcohol and when they wake they don‟t remember what happened. The problem with alcoholism is that there is no cure and despite the number of treatment programs available many people will lose their careers, family and life before reaching out for help.

FASD can cause a baby to have a number of problems including low birth weight, failure to thrive after birth as well as learning difficulties. FASD can affect the fetus at any time during pregnancy; there is no safe time or amount of alcohol that can be consumed. The most effective way to prevent FASD is to not drink even a single drop during pregnancy. Lynette says the most frustrating thing about FASD is that it is 100% preventable.

Most often they begin using alcohol or drugs as a way to cope with a stressful or traumatic event in their lives. This becomes a huge problem when they have moved past that stressful situation however they are still using the substance. Overcoming the addiction is a difficult thing to do alone; many need to stay at a residential treatment facility. Support groups are a very vital piece of staying clean and sober.

Marijuana has been and remains very popular in our country. Emergency rooms are treating more patients for complications connected to mixing other drugs or alcohol with the cocaine they ingested. Heroin use, a very dangerous drug, and prescription drug abuse is on the rise. Drug awareness is necessary for both parents and children as a way to identify the symptoms of substance abuse as well as preventative measures.

At the onset of the H1N1 virus outbreak it was imperative that target groups such as young children and seniors and people with chronic medical condition get the vaccine first. As of the mid December the vaccine was open to anyone who was interested in becoming protected from the virus. Some people are still not getting the vaccine especially African Americans. Some people have a fear of needles while others are unsure of the side effects from the vaccine. Carla talked about the two formulas used to administer the vaccine as well as the possible side effects which are minimal.

Marcella Martell, Registered Dietitian at Aultman Health Foundation, talked about calcium needs on this segment. Everyone should have about 1200mg of calcium and between 400 – 800 IU (international units) of vitamin D daily. Our primarily source of calcium can be found in milk products. Other great sources of calcium are dark green leafy vegetables and fish with soft bones. Studies have shown that a diet rich in calcium can help lower blood pressure and enable people to lose weight as well as maintain weight. Our greatest source of vitamin D is obtained by exposure to sunlight. For most people 15- 20 minutes of sunlight a day is sufficient.

A stroke occurs when a blood clot develops within the blood vessel causing blockage and depriving the brain of oxygen. A blood clot can form due to blood itself or fat plague in the blood. Eating a well balanced diet consisting of fruits and vegetables and low fat foods as well as exercise and yearly medical exams can decrease the risk of having a stroke. Hospitals are treating patients that display stroke symptoms quickly, as they do heart attack victims and as a result are seeing better recovery rates.

Improperly fitting shoes can cause calluses and pressure point redness that could become infected and lead to serious health risks for diabetics. Diabetes affects all the systems in the body. Due to poor circulation diabetics heal at a slower rate that the average person. The lengthy healing time is an open door for an infection to set in, which requires additional healing time. Diabetics should not try to self treat their wounds because improper care could lead to infection and/or amputation the foot. Joy In Our Town # 1467 28:45 13:30 L PA/O 03/29/2010 11:30 AM Maintaining weight loss is even more important than the weight loss itself. Rose Franklin, Team Coordinator and Alphonso Drone, Team Captain of Temple Maintenance Support Group, both shared tips on the importance of losing weight and how to maintain the weight loss. Eating a healthy diet consisting of low fats, plenty of fruits and vegetables combined with physical activity most days of the week is the most effective way to lose weight. As a result of replacing high fat beef with low fat turkey in recipes and using portion control as well as eating more whole grains Alphonso has reversed some of his health problems and reduced his dependency upon medications significantly.

The liver acts as a filter to help eliminate the toxins in the body. It‟s important to drink pure water, eat whole foods including vegetables and to exercise daily. Dr. Gary Myers talked about cavities in young children. A cavity is a bacterial infection called Strep Mutans. Cavities appear over time and are affected by how much and how often sugar is consumed. It is important to limit sugar, brush, floss and visit the dentist regularly. Dr. Carl Schmidt talked about men‟s health. For the prostate gland, it is important to eat a high quality food with clean oils such as flax or grape seed oil. Eating salad and nuts will help to nourish the prostate gland as well. Exercise that includes muscle building will help the body as well.

Grapes, Red Peppers, Bananas, Garlic and Onions are beneficial for a health heart. Dr. Terry Overton talked about shoulder injuries. It is the most problematic joint in the body because most of the injuries involve soft tissue. There are four muscles around the rotator cuff that can be torn, sprained or strained. Test and MRI can determine which muscle is injured. Dr. Clark Gerhart talked about how good hand hygiene can help stop the spread of viruses. The skin is a major defense in stopping viruses from entering the body. It‟s important to wash our hands and use hand sanitizer as often as possible. 700 Club CBN NewWatch 1:00:00 5:00 REC PA/O/E 3/17/2010 3:00 PM #031710 Lori Johnson, CBN News Reporter , says that Mercury is a deadly poison inside every one of us. It's in things like fish, dental fillings, and vaccines. Scientists agree that a little bit is okay, but warn not to over-do it. So how much is too much? Fish does contain mercury, and therefore some caution should be taken when choosing your fish and deciding how often to eat it. Much of the mercury in fish comes from coal-fired power plants. The emissions fall to the ground and are then washed into the waterways. Then it's absorbed by tiny organisms which are eaten by small fish, so the mercury stores in their bodies. When larger fish eat smaller fish, mercury accumulates, and builds-up to high levels in The figure designated as TOPIC SEGMENT DURATION is based upon our good faith judgment and may not represent exact time.

So the fish at the top When choosing tuna, canned light tuna - which is the darker, cheaper variety - is low in mercury, and can be eaten twice weekly. But white tuna, albacore or sushi tuna, has more mercury and should be eaten no more than once a week for the high-risk groups. But what about the mercury in fish you catch in your local lake or river? If there's reason for concern, health departments will post signs on the banks of certain waterways, warning fishermen to be careful when eating fish caught there. Most state health departments will also post warnings about specific waterways on their Web page. If you are uncertain, play it safe and eat only one meal a week of fish you catch and no other fish during that week. In addition to eating fish, many of us are also exposed to mercury here at the dentist's office when we get a filling. Amalgam fillings, also known as silver fillings, contain 50 percent mercury. But don't panic if you have them. The American Dental Association and the Food and Drug Administration say it's safe. So watch out if your dentist suggests replacing your silver fillings because of the mercury. Some vaccines contain mercury, but not nearly as many as in the past. Years ago, mercury was common as a preservative in vaccines. But it is largely gone now. Many parents believe mercury in vaccines causes autism. So mercury is a poison that is part of our daily lives, such as in fish, dental fillings and vaccines. But it's important to separate fact from fear. Doctor to Doctor #239 28:30 28:30 REC PA/O/E 01/05/2010 12:30 PM Dr. Caroline Leaf talked about how emotions can impact the body. The body and the mind are interlinked. A person can become physically ill because they are overwhelmed and can‟t think straight. Suppressed emotions can come out emotionally, physically and behaviorally. It is important to deal with our emotions as they come to our attention. Dr. Michael Tick talked about Transdermal Infusion. It‟s important to get the root of health problems rather than treat the symptoms. The skin is connected to all vital components of the body. By using the skin, we can see which organs are having a problem and then apply herbs directly to the skin. Dr. Denise Brady talked about oral health. Healthy gums should be pale pink in color. Symptoms of unhealthy gum could be bleeding when flossing for more than a week and bad odor. The number one cause of gum disease is the level of good and bad bacteria in the mouth are out of balance. This can also lead to other problems like heart disease. It‟s important to your dentist twice a year.

It is not naturally made because it is no where found in nature. It is ok in moderation but moderation is no more than 32 grams of sweeteners per day. There are no studies showing the long term affects of it. People should avoid it and other sweeteners. Dr. Ace Anglin talked about bunions being a deformity that happens in about 30% of people. It most often is a problem for women because of narrow length and high heels. It‟s important to wear proper shoes. Rest, ice, compression and elevation can help manage bunion pain. Dr. Robert Gear talked about Spinal Degeneration which happens in three phases. Phase one the alignment of the spin is altered but the disc space remains the same. Phase two alignment continues to deteriorate and disc space it narrowed. Phase three joint space is no longer visualized. Prevention is recommended but sometimes surgery is required. Doctor to Doctor #241 28:30 28:30 REC PA/O/E 01/19/2010 12:30 PM Dr. Dino Prato talked about Cardio Vascular disease. Although it can be impacted by genetics, dietary health does play a critical role. Deficiencies in antioxidants, vitamin C, amino acids, proline and lysine can impact it as well. It‟s important to change your eating habits, clean out toxins in the body and then provide the nutrients needed to heal. Dr. Randy Brinson talked about ulcers. Often they impact people with Chronic Reflux Disease. Symptoms can be obstruction of the stomach, bleeding, pain and discomfort. Doctors can use an endoscope and directly inject medicine into the ulcer or they can clip the vessel and hold into place. Dr. Doreen Lewis-Overton talked about the Adrenal Gland, which was designed to regulate the endocrine system. Stress can throw it off resulting in mood swings, light headed, belly fat and problems sleeping. It‟s important to eat healthy, moderate exercise, eliminate toxins and see a doctor about getting your Adrenal Gland tested.

Case history, visual activity, preliminary testsing, phoropter, slit lamp, ophthalmoscope and retinascope are all used in the exam. Dr. Amando Pineda talked about stress. The body was meant to endure stress by producing Coritzone and Adrenaline. Stress all the time can lead to high blood pressure, mood swings, lack of sleep and depression. It‟s important to learn to relax by exercising or drinking tea. Doctor to Doctor #243 28:30 28:30 REC PA/O/E 02/02/2010 12:30 PM Dr. Rita Hancock talked about true hunger.

It‟s important to get the right amount of sleep to maintain energy. It‟s also important to eat the right kinds of food and not put harmful substances like alcohol or drugs into your body. Dr. Scott Farhart talked about women‟s emotional health. The brain produces chemicals that can get out of balance and lead to emotional issues. 85% of women have some form of premenstrual syndrome. That can result in mood changes, irritability, anger, depression, bloating, forgetfulness and confusion. It‟s important to eat right and exercise. Dr. Craig Travis talked about developing resilience. We all experience negative events such as a loss of job, medical issues, move, divorce or loss of a loved one. We can‟t hide from life, but we can choose how to deal with it. Be positive and helping others along with good relationships can help a person get through a difficult time.

It helps to rebuild and repair muscle tissue. Most people are deficient in protein by consuming less than 50 grams per day. Some sources of protein are eggs, dairy/milk products, lean meats and grains. Dr. Dale Peterson talked about weight control. Some obstacles are crash diets, medications, vitamin/mineral deficiencies, sleep disturbance, chronic stress and substance addition. It may be helpful to examine all areas if not successful with eating less and exercising more. Dr. Ace Anglin talked about hammertoes.

Many seniors live in a situation that Doug calls “house rich and cash poor”, meaning their houses have a lot of equity but they are struggling financially. Equity is the difference between what is owed on a house and the house‟s market value.

During this season, especially following severe storms, scammers present themselves to homeowners offering to make repairs. These dishonest companies usually leave the job unfinished or give estimates that are not typical of that industry or some collect monies and do absolutely no work. The elderly populations are less likely to climb on their roof to investigate the damage so they often fall victim to roofing scammers. Driveway sealant scams also tend to occur more frequently in the springtime. To avoid becoming a victim of a scam homeowners should only deal with local companies that they contact and they should get more than one estimate for any repairs that need done on their home.

These groups are usually at a very vulnerable time in their life and are looking for an easy way to earn extra dollars. The two most popular schemes are “re-shipping” and “mystery shopping” jobs; both require the consumer to deposit counterfeit checks, counterfeit money orders or counterfeit cashier’s checks into their personal checking account and transfer the money out of the country. Weeks later the consumer then becomes responsible for the counterfeit instrument. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Summit County Juvenile Court Judge Linda Tucci Teodosio says that there is a direct link between delinquent behavior and poor school attendance. Delinquent behavior may also be driven by mental health issues, substance abuse and family problems. Placing the youth in prevention programs instead of detention centers helps to indentify high risk juveniles and provide them the community supports so they need to overcome the issues. As the substance abuse and mental health issues are addressed the delinquent behaviors diminish. Most of the youth that come through the courts are good kids that made wrong choices.

Parents need to learn the symptoms of Autism Spectrum Disorder so the concern can be evaluated early. Early diagnosis is imperative because the brain is still in the developmental stage and with intervention the areas of weakness can be addressed which can lead to greater success in the future. Autistic adults that have had no support system in the early years will often find it difficult to maintain employment due to the social issues.

The measure now goes to the board of directors and is expected to pass. Sickle cell anemia is a fairly well-known disease, however, sickle cell trait is different. Many people don't even know they have it and can go through life without any symptoms. But combined with rigorous exercise, it can be deadly. Unlike sickle cell anemia where both hemoglobin genes are abnormal and produce mostly dangerous, sickle-shaped blood cells, people with the trait have only one abnormal hemoglobin gene and their blood cells are mostly a healthy, round-shape. But when people with the trait intensely exercise, their round blood cells can take on the sickle shape, become sticky and clog blood vessels. Resting corrects that, returning the cells to their round shape. Complications from sickle cell trait is the number one cause of death for college football players. It's been linked with 10 on-field deaths in the last decade. None were during games, but instead happened during rigorous training. The NCAA recommended member schools test for the trait, but then went one step further and voted to require all Division 1 schools to test athletes for the trait. Currently only 64 percent of colleges screen for the trait and do so voluntarily. Beginning August 1, all athletes in NCAA Division 1 schools will be required to either: Take a blood test to screen for sickle cell trait. Prove they already had the screening. Opt out of the screening by signing a waiver releasing their school of any liability. Hospitals in every state screen all newborns for sickle cell trait. Yet, parents often don't read the results of those screenings or forget them when their babies grow up. One in 12 African Americans carry the trait, but people with Spanish, Greek, Italian, Asiatic Indian and Mediterranean ancestry are also affected. While some players never survived sickle trait complications, their deaths raised awareness about the condition that will likely prevent others from suffering the same fate.

While that's great advice, it seems many people are confused about what exactly constitutes processed food. If you can't identify them, it's hard to cut processed foods out of your diet. And although most people know processed foods are bad for them, it's often unclear what makes them so dangerous to a person's health. Remember - processed foods are foods that have been altered from their natural state. Have you ever wondered why a pre-packaged food stays fresh for months, when the same food made from scratch grows moldy in just days? It's because food manufacturers use man-made ingredients that prolong a product's shelf life. Unfortunately, they may have the opposite effect on peoples' health. Trans fats are commonly found in commercially fried food and packaged foods, especially baked goods. But you won't see the phrase, "trans fat" in the list of ingredients. Instead, look for the word, "hydrogenated." And beware of labels claiming no trans fats. They're often still in there, because the Food and Drug Administation allows food with up to a half-gram of trans fat per serving to be labeled "trans fat free." The problem is, those servings can be small so we eat many servings, and those half-grams add-up. Vending machines are often loaded with processed foods. In addition to trans fats, they often contain too much salt, which can cause heart problems and creates a craving for even more salt. Another addictive ingredient you'll find in processed foods is high fructose corn syrup, which is linked to obesity and diabetes. Although high fructose corn syrup manufacturers contend it's nutritionally the same as sugar, others say it's worse. Also on the list are other syrups and sweeteners like dextrose, glucose, lactose and maltose. And speaking of chemical names, here's another one to watch out for: monosodium glutamate, or MSG for short. Food manufacturers like it because it adds flavor. But doctors dislike it because it causes high insulin secretion. Believe it or not, even white flour is a processed food. Its soft texture and mild taste is created by removing the most nutritious parts of the wheat berry, the bran and the germ. The starch leftover is digested too fast in the body and can lead to weight gain, diabetes, heart disease and cancer. By contrast, whole wheat flour includes the entire wheat berry, which is digested slowly, making us feel full longer. Although identifying processed foods and removing them from our diet isn't easy, it may be less troubling than dealing with the health problems they could create Doctor to Doctor #250 28:30 28:30 REC PA/O/E 04/06/2010 12:30 PM Dr. LaJoyce Brookshire talked about how to stay well.

Education indicators in the city of Canton are what inspired Mayor William Healy to run for office. For several years the state’s report card showed that only about 50% of students were graduating from high school. Education has a huge impact on the property value, the crime rate and the economic growth of a community. People want to move into neighborhoods that have good schools. Crime stats decrease in neighborhoods that have strong schools and high graduation rates. In the past few years graduation rates have increased dramatically due to educational awareness programs as well as the great efforts of the Canton City Schools staff from the superintendent down to the janitors.

Basic fundamentals of reading, writing and arithmetic are a necessity in today’s society. Behavior issues, whether intentional or as a result of mental illness or problems within the home, will hinder a child’s education. Students that have behavior issues that are not addressed will find themselves expelled from school and written off by society as a failure. Public school teachers generally do not have time for one on one contact that a lot of students who have behavior issues need. Often times when the problem is addressed the student is able to function in a typical school classroom setting.

Stark Education Partnership Program Officer Adele Gelb says that the catchall term for higher education is college. Certificates of proficiency can be earned at a technical school as well as a union that certifies that you have the skills to perform in a particular field in today’s world. Area high school students have the opportunity to earn college credits while they are completing their high school education. Some students that have taken advantage of this opportunity are receiving their high school diploma as well college work course credits upon graduation: which means equates to less money needed for tuition.

Parents find it stressful during this time to tell children that they cannot engage in some school activities that require fees because the budget does not allow for it.

Parents may secure children in a seat belt however most often the belt rubs on the child’s neck so they put it behind their back which will not protect them in an accident. The use of a booster seat raises a child up so the seat belt fits them properly and ensures that they are securely fastened in an automobile.

Thirty percent of all childhood injuries are fall related; tripping over things, falling off of things or just clumsiness. Removing clutter from around the home can prevent many falls. Burns can occur from the temperature of hot water being too high. Household cleaner containers can be poisonous to children; ideally parents should have these items in a locked cabinet but at least be sure they are out of the reach of small children.

Marcus believes that selfishness, on the behalf of the mother or father, is the main reason why a child grows up without its father. Fathers not only need to be emotionally attached to their child, they need to provide financially for them as well. Church members as well as the general community can help to fill the void of an absent parent by supporting, encouraging and providing guidance to fatherless children.

Happiness is an emotional state of being that varies quite frequently throughout the day. Healthy marriages consist of two people that understand that they are in a lifelong relationship that they must work at constantly. In a healthy marriage the couple will face conflicts but are willing to work toward resolving the problem. Communication and body language are very important in conflict resolution. Couples that create a MVP (Mission, Value and Purpose) plan are better able to understand the commitment involved in achieving their goals.

Although the physical abuse is most often seen, the emotional abuse tends to have a more long lasting effect on the victim. Victims of domestic violence often have too many connections to just walk away as many people would suggest to them. Those who have removed themselves from the situation often need constant reassurance and support to keep them from returning to that lifestyle.

Infrastructures such as water lines and road foundations in the city of Canton are between 30 and 60 years old. Underground leaks can lead to water loss. Using advanced technologies the city has found many areas that are faulty and need repair. Replacing 20% of the infrastructure has already saved the city over 3 million gallons of water a day.

It is illegal for people under 18 years of age to send pictures of this nature. Young people and their parents need to understand that sexting is illegal. Walsh points out that sending a nude photo via cell phone is the equivalent of posting that same photo on the school wall for everyone to see.

Countries that consume mostly plant based foods such as grains, fruits, and vegetables have fewer cancer incidents. Fiber, which is found only in plant foods, plays an important role in moving cholesterol as well as carcinogens through the body. Certain foods actually boost the immune system to work effectively in destroying cancer cells that enter the body. Cooking meats at very high temperatures such as in grilling actually produces carcinogens.

Despite fears of a world-wide crisis, while many people contract the flu last year, relatively few died from it. The World Health Organization announced the official end of the Swine Flu, or H1N1, pandemic during the first week of August. But what about this year? Pediatricians are warning parents against developing a false sense of security. The swine flu is expected to return and parents are being urged to take the necessary precautions. This year's flu vaccine will arrive in doctor's offices in just a couple of weeks. Experts hope to avoid what happened last year when the government purchased 160 million doses of the H1N1 vaccine, but nearly half of those 70 million doses, were never used, and will now have to be destroyed. The reason for the disconnect is that flu vaccine production is much slower than the speed of the illness itself. So, with many people travelling by airplane these days, that last year's outbreak of H1N1 spread faster in six weeks than the past two pandemics, in 1957 and 1968, did in six months. The World Health Organization classified H1N1 as a Phase 6 pandemic -- the highest level -- based on how widespread it was. But it turned out to be not that severe, only a low-level category 1 in terms of how deadly it was. Still, that could have worsened at any time. Most flu vaccines, including last year's H1N1 vaccine, are manufactured by growing the flu virus in a chicken egg. But scientists want to do away with this painstaking method because it takes months to get the job done. There's also no way to protect against the deadly Avian Bird Flu. Within two years, most flu vaccine companies will likely convert from growing the virus in eggs to growing it in cells, which is faster. Within ten years, they'll likely make flu vaccines using a molecular approach that doesn't require any growing of a virus at all. Development of a universal flu vaccine is underway. The new vaccine is one that will protect against all strains of every type of flu. The new vaccine may be available in the next five years. So while the Swine Flu pandemic was much ado about nothing to some people, others see it as a dress rehearsal for the next pandemic that might be much more severe.

Mobility and income seem to be the top two reasons for seniors to move into a smaller housing unit. As we age, it becomes more of a challenge to climb up and down stairs; seniors benefit from having a one story home. Limited mobility also hinders the elder‟s ability to provide routine house maintenance such as yard work and household repairs. Many seniors live on a fixed income which creates the need for lower housing payments. Unfortunately there are more seniors than there are houses that address their needs.

Folks need to look at their credit reports first; taking care of any delinquent accounts and reducing their overall debt. Home maintenance should be given consideration when thinking of purchasing a home. Renters often don‟t have the expense of lawn care or the task of changing furnace filters or cleaning gutters.

Parents often have issues, such as addictions, that they must address before the children can be returned to their custody; sadly some parents do not complete their case plan.

Many people do not understand the importance of good digestion and proper elimination of food. Proper elimination begins with chewing food thoroughly; many Americans gulp food, usually fast food, down as they are always on the go. Fiber, found in plant based foods, is very important in helping move food through the digestive tract however many of us do not take in enough fiber.

Close to 10 million Americans suffer from this medical condition, known as hyperhidrosis. But there are now ways to help them keep it a secret. Unfortunately, many people with hyperhidrosis -- and even some doctors and insurance companies -- don't understand excessive sweating is a medical condition. There are now treatments for varying degrees of hyperhidrosis. The first step is to get a good antiperspirant, not just a deodorant. Deodorants only treat odor, which comes from bacteria on the apocrine sweat gland. A deodorant's antiseptic or fragrance takes care of the bad smell. But wetness comes primarily from the eccrine sweat gland, and is generally odor-free. Antiperspirants use an aluminum compound to shut the gland, blocking the release of all that water. Some consumers are afraid that using antiperspirants containing aluminum may cause breast cancer or Alzheimer's disease. But most doctors agree antiperspirants containing aluminum are safe. The Alzheimer's scare can be linked back to a 1960s-era study which found abnormally high concentrations of aluminum in the brains of Alzheimer's victims. Since then, new evidence has led various health organizations and the Alzheimer's association to conclude, "Aluminum is not a key factor in developing Alzheimer's disease." Updated research also found no conclusive link between antiperspirant use and breast cancer, according to the Food and Drug Administration and the National Cancer Institute. Stronger antiperspirants containing more aluminum are sold with a "clinical" strength label. Doctors can also prescribe a powerful antiperspirant. Hyperhidrosis doesn't just affect the underarms. Some people suffer from excessive sweating on their feet and hands, which can also be dangerous. Treatments for excessive sweaty hands include prescription medication, immersing the hands in water with a very low electrical current, and botox injections. The injections last about six months, and work for nearly 80 percent of patients who try them. For those who don't respond to that treatment, there is surgery. But it's an option that should only be viewed as a last resort. People with hyperhidrosis often feel trapped by their condition. 700 Club CBN NewsWatch 1:00:00 5:00 REC PA/O/E 12/08/2010 3:00 PM #120810 Lori Johnson, CBN News Reporter, says each year about 750,000 Americans develop sepsis because of an infection, and nearly a third will die from the blood illness. Those with decreased immune systems stand the greatest chance for getting sepsis, but even the healthy are at risk. Nearly three- fourths of Americans are also unaware. Sepsis is the body's negative reaction to an infection. Half of all cases stem from fairly regular infections, such as pneumonia or those in the urinary tract. The other half come from infections contracted in the hospital, like staph. The best defense against developing sepsis is to wash your hands often. Also, avoid people with infections and strengthen your immune system by getting lots of rest, eating fresh fruits and vegetables, and keeping stress down. When infections do occur and develop into sepsis, the treatment is immediate antibiotics and fluids. Every hour without antibiotics, the chance of a patient’s survival drops 8 percent.

For the past 10 years, Americans have steadily increased their use of these historic institutions. Now, in the midst of the toughest economy in a generation, Americans are coming in droves. In recent years libraries have transformed, easing many concerns about whether they can stay relevant and up-to-date in the midst of sweeping technological changes. They've embraced the online world and now many communities are rallying behind them as budget cuts threaten. The American Library Association said recent polls show most public libraries have faced a loss in funding in the last several years. That usually results in fewer librarians, fewer hours, and in some cases, closing the doors altogether. This fall, cities from San Diego to Boston are considering library shutdowns. That almost happened in Philadelphia, Indianapolis, and Charlotte. But it's too late for others in North Carolina and northern Michigan. The loss in hours has proved to be an inconvenience for many. But what concerns librarians more is those who directly depend on their library. Indeed, the ALA said two-thirds of libraries nationwide now help patrons with online job hunting. Seventy percent provide the only free access to computers and the Internet in some communities. There's also a growing recognition that libraries are critical to the next generation. In a changing world, library advocates say their commitment to the young remains unchanged. The end goal for now then is helping communities not just thrive in today's economic realities but thrive in a 21st-century world where change is the new normal.
