Yall finally get to move on with your lives. He took several deep breaths as a lethal dose of pentobarbital began flowing into his arms, then began snoring. All movement stopped within less than a minute. He was pronounced dead 26 minutes later, at 8:41 p.m. CDT. A member of a Rio Grande Valley gang known as the Tri-City Bombers even before he was a teenager, Garza insisted a statement to police acknowledging his participation in the September 2002 shootings in Hidalgo County was made under duress and improperly obtained. But prosecutors said Garza orchestrated the gangs plan to silence the women, who Garza thought had witnessed another gang crime, and was present when several gang members opened fire on the women when they arrived at their trailer park home after work at a bar. I really didnt have anything to do with the scenario the state was providing, Garza told The Associated Press recently from death row.

Snoring sounds warning bells: expert

My stepdaughters are are autistic but recently deemed ‘recovered’ and I can tell you now that putting down other parents in times of their own different situation is not a way to get The word out on autisim. It is about supporting our children by supporting each other and providing Information for those uninformed. NOT putting others down.

Sounds like a research project by a bunch of bored underemployed PHD’s with an pretty lax government grant. Maybe adjusting a child’ sleeping position could eliminate this “snoring” problem.

Snoring in kids could mean other problems, doctors say

One of the topics was the problems caused by obstructive sleep apnoea, especially in children, and the role of orthodontists in helping to diagnose and treat the problem. It’s believed it affects about one in 25 New Zealand men and one in 50 New Zealand women and children. Maori are four times more likely to be affected. Dr Bomba said her real focus was on better educating the medical profession to take the problem seriously. “We can really change these people’s lives. I’d like to eliminate it in adults.” She believed about 35 per cent of children who snored more than three times a week had obstructive sleep apnoea. Weight and environmental factors like allergies could increase the risk, she said.

They’re naturally sweet: No refined sugar overload here sweet potatoes make for a healthy, lower-calorie treat. Satisfy any morning sweet/salty cravings with these sweet potato breakfast biscuits and get your healthy dessert fill with these sweet potato desserts . They regulate blood sugar: Sweet potatoes may have their fair share of carbs ( about 33 grams per cup ), but they contain a compound that increases levels of adiponectin, the blood-sugar regulating hormone, in the body. Sweet potatoes have a relatively low glycemic index rating (50), which can also help prevent blood sugar spikes after you eat. Regulated blood sugar levels can help get rid of those sugary cravings you get when your levels dip. And while studies have been conflicting, some research has shown that low-glycemic foods stay in your digestive tract longer, helping you control your appetite . To maintain sweet potatoes’ low-glycemic properties, boil or steam them instead of roasting them (which destroys some of these properties).

Weight-Loss Surgery Can Improve Long-Term Diabetes Control, Study Says

At a median follow-up of six years, 50 percent of patients were in diabetes remission. Specifically, 24 percent of patients had complete remission of their diabetes with a blood sugar level of less than 6 percent without diabetes medications; another 26 percent had partial remission, while 34 percent of all patients had improved long-term diabetes control. Also, the number of patients who required insulin therapy was reduced by half, and the number of patients requiring no medications rose 10-fold. In addition, patients significantly reduced their cardiovascular risk factors. “This study confirms that the procedure can offer durable remission of diabetes in some patients and should be considered as an earlier treatment option for patients with uncontrolled diabetes,” Brethauer said.

How Weight Loss Applies to ‘Shifting’ Your Finances

Yes! I have learned to truly savior inedible treats. Turning up the volume on a Katy Perry song and dancing like crazy with my daughter in her bedroom. Taking a family walk in Central Park. Polishing my nails. Lighting a beautiful candle – nest grapefruit is my favorite scent. Playing Scrabble.

Mental Health Treatment Center Uses Social Media to Connect Clients to Treatment

31, 2013 at 1:19 PM VENTURA, Calif., Aug. 31 (UPI) — Troubled actress Amanda Bynes could be held in a mental health facility for as long as one year, a California judge ruled. TMZ reported Friday that doctors at the Hillmont Psychiatric Center in Ventura, Calif., requested a long-term hold for Bynes, and a judge — whose name and district were not reported — granted it. Sources told the celebrity gossip website it’s unlikely the actress will be held for an entire year, but she may be kept in a facility for 60 days to stabilize her before she’s sent to live in her mother’s home. Bynes was transferred from Hillmont to UCLA Medical Center Friday, the actress’ family said, despite a statement from Jonathan Jaxson, a publicist claiming to speak on Bynes’ behalf, announcing her transfer earlier this month. “Jonathan Jaxson does not represent the Bynes family or Amanda,” the Bynes’ attorney, Tamar Armanak, said in a statement to E!

aItas important to note that social media cannot give you all of the information you need when choosing a mental health center ,a said Brafman, a 20-year veteran of the behavioral health industry. aHowever, it can play a big part in making that initial connection between people and treatment. After engaging with us on Facebook or Twitter, a person may be more likely to take the next step and come into the facility.a Besides cost, the reason many people do not seek mental health treatment is because they feel nervous or embarrassed. Broaching the topic through social media provides a degree of anonymity, allowing them to ask detailed questions or get an idea of what to expect from treatment. Social media accounts can also link potential clients to the mental health treatment centeras website and blog, where they can explore further. aWe make it a point to encourage interactions on our social media networks,a said Brafman.
