Antipsychotics Cause Rapid Weight Gain in Youth By Julie Steenhuysen CHICAGO, Oct 27 (Reuters) - Up to a third of children and adolescents who took common antipsychotic drugs for the first time became overweight or obese in as little as 11 weeks, raising their risk for diabetes and heart disease, U.S. researchers said on Tuesday. They said doctors who prescribe antipsychotics to children should carefully consider the benefits against the risks, and keep close watch on children taking the drugs. "These data confirm prior findings that children and adolescents are highly vulnerable to antipsychotic medication," Dr. Christopher Varley and Dr. Jon McClellan of the Seattle Children's Hospital wrote in a commentary in the Journal of the American Medical Association. "These results

The Beginnings of Preparedness

The Beginning of Preparedness – Mark Smith

Ever had the lights go out suddenly due to a bad storm?  Remember fumbling through the darkened house looking for candles or a flashlight?  Do you recall cursing yourself when the flashlight was so dim it barely lit the hallway due to dead batteries? 

Are you prepared for potential disasters?  Ice storms?  Hurricanes?  Natural or man made events?

Let’s talk some about where to begin. You’ve decided that it’s a good idea to be better prepared for potential disasters and emergencies; good for you!  Might not have been an easy decision but the main thing is that you are here now. 
 
So you want to be better prepared and could be wondering how to go about that.  I have one piece of proven advice for you –  inventory.  Until you KNOW what you have you won’t KNOW what you need.  Doing a written inventory (use a computer, crayons, a pad and a pen, doesn’t matter – just write it down) does several things for you. 

1. Let’s you physically see what you have and what condition it’s in. ...

Palestinians Denied Water

Posted on Oct 27, 2009 in Global & National News

Report: Palestinians denied water Source: BBC Israel is denying Palestinians access to even the basic minimum of clean, safe water, Amnesty International says.  In a report, the human rights group says Israeli water restrictions discriminate against Palestinians in the occupied West Bank. It says that in Gaza, Israel's blockade has pushed the already ailing water and sewage system to "crisis point".  Israel says the report is flawed and the Palestinians get more water than was agreed under the 1990s peace deal.   'Basic need' In the 112-page report, Amnesty says that on average Palestinian daily water consumption reaches 70 litres a day, compared with 300 litres for the Israelis.  It says that some Palestinians barely get 20 litres a day - the minimum recommended eve

Senior Official in Afghanistan Resigns Over U.S. Strategy Former Marine Says It Will Take Decades And Billions of Dollars to Achieve Success in Afghanistan Via: ABC News: A key U.S. official in Afghanistan has resigned in protest over U.S. policy in the war-torn region, as the Obama administration deliberates its future strategy there.

Want To Live In A Shipping Container?

by Heather on February 16, 2009

If you’re a regular reader of The Greenest Dollar, then you probably already know that I’m enthralled with the idea of living in a micro home. For the uninitiated, a micro home is pretty much the backlash against the McMansion movement of the past twenty years.

The trend now is in the opposite direction. Hallelujah! We’re going Small. Green. Efficient.

That’s micro home living.

So, it is with the utmost excitement that I share this idea with you. And, the idea is constructing a home using old steel shipping containers.

Now, before you throw your mouse at the screen in disgust because those steel crates are just too ugly to even think about being used as a house, just take a look for a moment at what’s possible and then we’ll talk…

Pretty amazing, right? All of those images are from ContainerCity.com, which is the website for Urban Space Management, a group of builders in London who are building entire communities, schools, and farmer’s markets using old freight containers....

U.S. Economy
The Chicago Federal Reserve’s index of national activity slipped from an upwardly revised -.65 to -.81 in September. Their index of manufacturing in the Midwest increased from 81.6 to 82.3 in September. The December 2010 eurodollars closed down .055 at 98.195.

Grains and Cotton
Is there better harvest weather ahead? Yesterday’s 6 to 10 day forecast from the National Weather Service is expecting below average temperatures for the northern half of the Midwest with normal to slightly above average precipitation. December corn closed down 19.75 cents at $3.78, the lowest close in a week.

The USDA said that last week’s export inspections of:
Corn totaled 24.0 million bushels, down 5% from a year ago.
Soybeans totaled 43.8 million bushels, down 7% from a year ago.
Wheat totaled 14.3 million bushels, down 35% from a year ago.

December wheat fell 20.75 cents to $5.27, pressured by profit-taking and plentiful world supplies.

After the close, the USDA said that:
20% of the corn crop was harvested, down from the five-year average of 58%....

Helo Crash with Soldiers and DEA aboard; 14 dead

Posted on Oct 26, 2009 in Police, Military, & War

Hayden's Opinion:  After reading through this article, I can't help but stop and wonder about the 'drug raid' that brought this on.  Presumably, DEA Agents were the 'civilian law enforcement agents' that were killed in this crash, attached to the Embassy located there.  Once again, the 'war on drugs', in the middle of the 'war on terror', has claimed innocent lives over a plant.  A naturally occurring plant.  When you take the black market aspect away from narcotics and give it a free market make-over, the mafias, cartels, street thugs, and narco-traffickers lose all incentives.  They must then engage in a regulated, taxed business.  You don't think that would help?  You say that the narco-dealers would just go undergorund or still operate on the black market?  Well, the consu

President Declares National Emergency… But why?

President Obama declares national emergency over swine flu pandemic, but why?

Source: NaturalNews – Mike Adams 

According to the CDC, swine flu infections have already peaked, and the pandemic is on its way out. Peak infection time was the middle of October, where one in five U.S. children experienced the flu, says the CDC. Out of nearly 14,000 suspected flu cases tested during the week ending on October 10, 2009, 99.6% of those were influenza A, and the vast majority of those were confirmed as H1N1 swine flu infections.

Your rights as an American are no longer recognized under this national emergency declaration.
Even though the H1N1 pandemic appears to have peaked out, U.S. President Barack Obama has now declared a national emergency over swine flu infections. The reasoning behind such a declaration? According to the White House, it’s designed to “allow hospitals to better handle the surge in patients” by allowing them to bypass certain federal laws.

Emergency powers trump the Bill of Rights

That’s the public explanation for this, but the real agenda behind this declaration may be far more sinister....

Economists Push Employer Tax Break For New Hiring

Posted on Oct 26, 2009 in Economic News

Some economists want Congress to approve a tax credit for employers who create new jobs over the next two years. Supporters say it's cheaper for the government to subsidize private employers who hire more workers than to pass huge spending packages to stimulate the economy.» E-Mail This     » Add to Del.icio.us Click here to read entire article Newegg.com is your source for the lowest priced computer items, mp3 players, LCD screens, etc. If you are the author or agent of this article and would like your RSS feed removed from www.TruthisTreason.net, please email 'contact@truthistreason.net' and your RSS Feed will be deleted.
