Let’s face it, we’ve all lived with some peculiar people in our lives, especially during our younger years. Did you ever wonder: what if that guy who sang in the shower, or always ate your leftover pizza without permission, became rich and famous? What if you both did?
Reality shows have endlessly forced “odd couple” type pairings or entire groups of random celebrities. But for the purposes of this article, I’m concentrating on people who became famous in different, often wildly divergent fields (since it’s not all that uncommon for, say, actors or musicians to come up together in the same “scene”).
Your mood, your memory, your ability to deal with life’s daily stresses, are all sacrificed when you aren’t able to get a good long, deep sleep; especially the important REM (rapid eye movement or dreaming) sleep.
Your performance at work and your relationships with family and friends can suffer, too. Studies have even drawn a correlation to sleep deprivation and weight gain.
Plenty of books and websites are devoted to insomnia. It could probably be described as an epidemic in western cultures.
The footprint is just 914 sq ft (85 sq meters). The architects have managed to elegantly combine 21 floor plates positioned at various levels and connected by a system of stairs and ladders that create an easily accessible, light-filled space.
A trip to the tanning bed has been a normal part of the routine for many seeking beautiful tan skin — especially in the summer months when swimsuits become a mainstay!
But tanning beds are also a source of debate due to their potential health implications.
At the beginning of the year a Canadian law passed prohibiting those under the age of eighteen from using a tanning bed. The health risks associated with continued use was the source of the law, many claiming that minors should not be able to choose to use a product that might have a detrimental impact on their health in years to come.

“We wanted to give people the sense of an arrival at a destination. We have to come up with a new way of representing the country every year. This year, each scene is a different place in South Africa.”

Chances are good that South Africa will win gold again — for the 33rd time.
Many students struggle every year on class projects because today most, if not all, assignments require presentations or reports. Beyond just text, students should incorporate additional elements like diagrams into their assignments to engage their audience visually.
Diagrams, as opposed to plain text, allow information to be displayed in a format that is easier to understand and digest which makes student presentations more engaging. The concept is simple enough, but there are many kinds of diagrams, and deciding which chart or graph to use can quickly become confusing.
This heart-warming story caught my attention. Good news is scarce in real estate, today.
With the US sub-prime crisis in 2005 an unprecedented real estate tsunami signalled the start of a worldwide recession. It was a phenomena known as the United States Housing Bubble.
Real estate markets everywhere went into free fall, a decline that may only now be bottoming out. Bank repossessed properties, or foreclosures, went through the roof and may still be on the increase.
Whenever clouds are about, sometimes, we’ll find one with a silver lining. 14-Year-old Willow Tufano from Florida was in the right place at the right time when a $100,000 value, 2-bedroom, home became available on an auction for just $12,000. Her mother, a Florida real estate agent, went into the deal with her on a half-share basis. Continue reading 14-Year-Old Real Estate Investor Buys Bank Repossessed Home→

Multiple myeloma is a cancer in which plasma cells form tumors in the bone because the cells grow too quickly. While the body attempts to fight the tumors, it’s difficult for the bone marrow to create healthy platelets and blood cells. This cancer also causes anemia, which can in turn cause abnormal bleeding. Multiple myeloma also makes it easier for a person to develop infections. Continue reading Multiple Myeloma Tests And Treatment→
Early one morning in the late 1940s, an elderly Ethiopian Jew stood with his young grandson at the top of a small mountain, waiting for sunrise. As the sun broke over the horizon, the old man, pointing toward the sun, said, “Remember, this is the way to Jerusalem.”

More than one-third of us will develop cancer at least once in our lives, but a good portion of those diagnosed with cancer will have many years of full and productive life with and after the diagnosis.
