OMG! MY PARENTS ARE GETTING OLD RESOURCE

**** READING FOR BABY BOOMERS ****
OMG MY PARENTS ARE GETTING OLD




With over 72 million ‘baby boomers’ currently in America, this means many families are, or will be, facing the administration of a parent’s care.

When the dust settled after two horrifically intense years of managing her mother’s care, caregivers, and finances, Faye Levow was determined to create a comprehensive resource so that no one would ever again be lost in the whirlwind of dealing with unprepared, aging parents. Her upcoming book, OMG! My Parents Are Getting OLD! (Launch Pad Publishing Inc.) is the successful result of that determination.

OMG! My Parents Are Getting OLD! is THE definitive resource for families forced to deal with the mountain of information and red tape that faces them. With over 44 million family caregivers caring for aging family members in our society today, it’s a given that there is a tremendous need for such a resource. The practical yet priceless information in this book will make the transition…

TIME WARNER LETS DOWN NEW YORK CITY

**** YOU CAN'T COUNT ON TIME WARNER CABLE NYC IN A EMERGENCY ****

Time Warner Cable Lets Customers Down During Storm



Well, it's right in the middle of a hurricane and Time Warner cable is out. Considering that most of New York City's cables are underground, this is not right.

From speaking to customer representatives, I have a strange feeling that they cut out the service on purpose, to save their equipment like the MTA. This in a time of a emergency, is unthinkable.  If you lose some equipment in a emergency to keep your customers informed to what is happening in the city, then you are doing your job. To keep New Yorkers in the dark at the sake of saving some equipment, just really sucks.

As a new Times Warner customer for only two weeks, already it is time to look for a new company that I can count on in case of emergency.

Time Warner let New Yorkers down!

HOW TO STAY IN SHAPE LIKE THE SATURDAYS

Image
**** FITNESS WITH THE SATURDAYS ****





Have you ever wondered how pop stars stay in shape? Don’t worry it’s not as hard as it may seem, because, guess what -- they’re just like us!

Multi-platinum-selling UK girl group, The Saturdays, (who are recording their fourth album in the US), have less than traditional methods when it comes to staying in shape. When you have 11 top ten singles and three top ten albums, you must be doing something right!

For starters, the girls are all dog-crazy. With 10 dogs in total between the five girls, you can imagine how many times a day they’re taking their beloved pooches for a brisk stroll down Hollywood Blvd or a quick jog down the boardwalk. As Frankie would say, 'pugs not drugs!'





The girls sneak as much cardio into their daily lives as possible. While planning Rochelle’s wedding, the girls were spotted running all around London for the big day. From cake tastings (just one bite of course) to dress fittings, the girls were on the go go go! Thank god …

SOLUTIONS FOR JENNIFER ESPOSITO ILLNESS

Image
**** CELEBRITY HEALTH TIPS ****
Jennifer Esposito



Sheryl Goldstein, author of The No Gluten Solution, Cooking For Family and Friends, says:


“It’s not in my nature to publicly question someone’s statement regarding health issues, but I can’t help but react to the recent press surrounding Jennifer Esposito. I, like Jennifer, have celiac disease and we know that a strict compliance to a gluten-free diet is the remedy.


After she collapsed on the TV set of Blue Bloods, she claimed that her condition was the cause. That she asked the producers to make schedule accommodations due to her disorder is in direct conflict with what she declares as her beliefs on her website, Jennifer’s Way.


Her tagline, “Learn to live again… gluten free” says to me that one can take control of his/her health through adherence to a gluten-free diet. She lives this life and her mission is to help others with celiac and gluten intolerance to do the same.


Jennifer clearly states that her health is ‘directly linked to wh…

JESSICA SIMPSON TALKS ABOUT LOSING WEIGHT

**** THE US WEEKLY ROUNDUP ****
US Weekly Cover




The cover story of the new issue of Us Weekly features Jessica Simpson’s honest account of losing her baby weight like the Average Joe-anne, pound by pound.


She’s not a size 0. Nor has she snapped back as quickly as some of her fellow first-time mommies (hi, Kristin Cavallari!). But the singer turned fashion mogul has lost nearly all of the 70 pounds she gained before giving birth to daughter Maxwell (with fiancé Eric Johnson, 33) on May 1. And Simpson — who has opened up about everything from her sex life to her bodily functions — has been re­freshingly honest about her weight struggle. “It is definitely a challenge,” she said on Katie Couric’s talk show, Katie, in September. To meet it, the 5-foot-3 star, 32, has adhered to the Weight Watchers PointsPlus program and four-days-a-week training sessions. “I feel positive about how I’ve done so far and really good about the goals I have set,” the plan spokeswoman tells Us. And she’s not done…

PHOBOS: Mayan Fear


Back in July, physicists in Geneva announced the existence of the Higgs Boson, or ‘God particle,’ a subatomic particle thought to be the key to understanding the makeup of the universe. What these physicists forgot to mention is that smashing protons together at near-light speed using the Large Hadron Collider also produces a potentially planet-ending byproduct -- miniature black holes.

While CERN physicists contend that these black holes are too small to threaten the Earth, a new book just released by NY Times best-selling author Steve Alten links the Large Hadron Collider with two very real cataclysmic threats prophesied by the Mayan Calendar, with the doomsday event predicted for December 21st of this year.

Author Steve Alten consulted with physicists while researching his book, PHOBOS: Mayan Fear, which graphically details these two ticking time-bombs of Mother Nature. The first is a 3,000-foot-high mega-Tsunami origina…
