Posted in Uncategorized on 14.10.14 by Merlyn

The causes of hunger in today’s America are… Read the rest

Is “Ice” Still An Issue?

Posted in Issues on 05.10.14 by Merlyn

iisaiTwenty years ago, it was “speed.” Today, there’s “ice.” What are they? What is the difference? Is “ice” safer, more dangerous, or just different? Both are methamphetamines. First, let’s look at what the drug is, chemically. Methamphetamine is a central nervous system (CNS) stimulant. It acts on the brain, causing feelings of alertness and well-being. These feelings are the “high,” the reason some start taking this type of drug and become addicted to it. In addition, methamphetamine can cause a physical dependence, which is why people continue to take it to prevent withdrawal from the… Read the rest

Are Twins Freaky? Maybe Not!

Posted in Uncategorized on 28.09.14 by Merlyn

atfmbHave you ever noticed that identical twins attract strange reactions from people? They’re often asked goofy questions, like: “How do you really know you’re you?” And some people think it’s fun to bring pairs of twins together, sometimes to stare at them like zoo specimens. Where do people get such ideas? They exist far back in literature. And television’s good twin/evil twin dramas don’t help.

In fact, identical twins are the exception; most twins don’t… Read the rest

Insuring Yourself Is Much Easier Now

Posted in Uncategorized on 03.09.14 by Merlyn

iuimeYou may not think about insurance protection before you go skiing or participate in a team sport. But, what if you break a leg and have to go to the hospital? Are you protected against those health care costs? If you get sick, what do you do? Where do you go? What kind of help can you find? When you break a leg, sprain an ankle, or come down with the flu, you probably don’t think, “Can I afford to see a doctor?” That’s the question, however, that many Americans have to ask themselves.

Although more overt racial discrimination in public transportation has given way, inadequate transit services affect many people’s access to work, recreation and health services. And because of the high costs of owning and driving a car, private automobile transportation is often not an affordable option. Federal policy has heavily favored automobile use, with $205 billion provided by the Highway Trust Fund for state road projects since 1956, compared to… Read the rest

Cities Make Sustainability A Priority

Posted in Issues on 11.06.14 by Merlyn

cmsyWhen Richard Morgan first conceived of a program to teach carpentry skills to at-risk youth, he didn’t intend for it to be a cutting edge environmental project. Through the American Institute for Learning, an adult education center in Austin, Texas, where Morgan works, he hoped to set up a cabinet shop that would serve as an apprenticeship program. But when the city’s Environmental and Conservation Services Department heard of Morgan’s plans, it suggested an environmental spin. Why not build energy-efficient, sustainable housing for low-income people? Morgan was intrigued, and the result is Casa Verde, a… Read the rest

Bullying: Not Going Away

Posted in Issues on 06.06.14 by Merlyn

bngaIt’s been a season of horror stories. And these stories of violence aren’t set in a dark alley at midnight … but in the halls and classrooms of America’s schools. In Bethel, Alaska, a 16-year-old boy shoots and kills the school principal–and a classmate who had teased him. In Pearl, Mississippi, a 16-year-old high school sophomore pulls a rifle on a crowd of classmates and opens fire. Two students are killed in the attack and seven others are wounded. Police arrest the boy, Luke Woodham, as he tries to drive away. Days later, five other… Read the rest
