Truly, you have to be completely disconnected from reality to believe that a silly sign is going to stop a murderer. Yet that’s exactly what liberals have claimed would work. So they ran a grand experiment across America that I’ll call the “Gun-Free Zone Experiment” to see if those signs would reduce or eliminate school shootings. Guess what? The experiment failed. In fact, “gun-free zone” signs turn out to be magnets for mass shooters … [Read more...] about 98% of mass shootings occur in “gun-free zones” … why do gun control loonies refuse to protect their own children?
Toddler refuses to sleep in own bed
Being alone can be intimidating. We live in a culture that tends to value our relationship status over who we are as human beings. And with the holidays just around the corner, the pressure is on more than ever to get coupled up (they call it cuffing season for a reason). We've all been there: relatives asking about your love life at a family gathering, and making you feel like a complete weirdo if you're not attached at the hip with a romantic partner.Unfortunately, this extreme pressure to be part of a twosome can lead many of us into relationships that are sub-par, and in some cases, pretty unhealthy.Which begs the question: Is it really better to be in any relationship rather than be single? Plenty of people might tell you yes, but we're here to set the record straight—absolutely not! Luckily, it doesn’t have to be this way. You’re perfectly whole on your own, and don't need to be in a relationship that makes you feel any less than ecstatic. … [Read more...] about ‘Why I Refuse To Settle In A Relationship’
Every night, a 45-pound, 3-year-old Dalmatian/Heeler mix shares my bed. We’ve had the same bedtime ritual for years: I give her a treat, she “gives me five” (with one paw), then “gives me ten” (with two paws), and then the lights go out.Recently, however, my dog did something that made me wonder if sharing my bed with her was a good idea. We were playing outside when she cut her ear. I took her inside so I could clean her wound. Immediately, she bounded into my bedroom and jumped on my bed, smearing blood all over my comforter.As I scrubbed blood out of fabric, it dawned on me that my dog is actually pretty gross. She plays in the dirt, chews her nails, eats cat vomit, regularly steps in poop, and drinks out of the toilet bowl. And I’m sharing my bed with her every night. Was it actually healthy for me to sleep with my dog in the same bed?I Googled “is sleeping with your dog unhealthy?” and was met with conflicting results.

(Natural News) California’s unconscionable vaccine mandate law (SB 277) went into effect July 1, 2016. The law eliminates parental rights, medical choice, and informed consent, forcing parents to submit their children to 40 doses of 10 vaccines, with no exceptions. The law applies to all children attending public and private K-12 schools, licensed daycare facilities, in-home daycare, public or private preschools and after-school care programs. Parents who refuse the forced, unnecessary, and sometimes dangerous vaccine protocol, have two restrictive options. They may give up their own discretion, bend over, and seek a medical exemption from a state licensed pediatrician (an exemption that is granted less than one percent of the time). Or parents must accept the harsh reality, that they have no access to public school and must instead homeschool their child, which isn’t always economical for working parents.Recently, on what started out as just a regular school day, one … [Read more...] about The medical police state has arrived in California: Mother threatened with ARREST for refusing to vaccinate her children
When my first daughter was born, my wife and I were living in a 400-square-foot apartment in Brooklyn. The only way to squeeze the crib in was to arrange the bedroom so that you had to crawl across the bed to get to it. Having to get to her for feedings and diaper changes both during the day and at night was enough of a hassle that we quickly decided it might be best to let her sleep in the bed with us. Related: 9 Foods To Help You Sleep BetterBut first, of course, we wanted to make sure it wasn’t dangerous. What if we were exhausted and rolled onto her in the middle of the night? What about our blankets and pillows? Could they accidentally suffocate her? And what about SIDS? We’d been told repeatedly, both during pregnancy and in the hospital after the birth, that children should always sleep on their backs, in a crib free from any stuffed animals or other things (save a pacifier) to decrease the risk of SIDS. Though the risk is low (affecting less than one out of … [Read more...] about Why We Decided To Let Our Baby Sleep In Our Bed
Do you roll solo in the sack? 30 percent of married or cohabitating people sleep in separate beds, reports a new study from Ryerson University.Among the common reasons couples snooze separately: snoring, issues with kids, and incompatible sleep schedules, says study author Colleen Carney, Ph.D.The two-bed setup doesn't necessarily signal relationship trouble. In fact, Carney says it may be a good idea in certain situations. For example, if your girlfriend’s a night owl and wakes you up every time she comes to bed late, you could wind up in a bad mood the next day—which has been shown to exacerbate relationship issues and your sex life.However, if you're sleeping apart to avoid turmoil, your arrangement could be a symptom of something more serious, Carney says.Before contemplating different beds, try a few tweaks to your sleep habits:Spend a few minutes being the big spoon, then roll to your side of the bed—it’s difficult to get a good night’s sleep … [Read more...] about Is It Normal to Sleep in Separate Beds?
After an exhausting week, sleeping in on the weekend feels damn good. But you’re not doing yourself any favors by catching a few hours of extra sleep on Saturday and Sunday morning.In fact, sleep bingeing might make you even more tired on Monday, says Brandy Roane, Ph.D., of Brown University’s Sleep for Science Research Laboratory.Related: The Better Man Project—2,000+ Awesome Tips to Help You Become a Stronger, Healthier, and Happier GuyThat’s because your body’s master clock—or circadian clock—is ruled by daylight. If you get out of bed at 7 a.m. Monday through Friday, your body will probably start to get tired around the same time every night, says Roane.But if you sleep until, say, noon on the weekends, you push back your clock by 5 hours.Come Sunday night, your body isn’t tired at your normal bedtime—so it takes you much longer to actually fall asleep.As a result, you sleep less and wake up feeling wiped on Monday—and … [Read more...] about Plan to Sleep In This Weekend?

When the weekend rolls around, you’re probably looking forward to some extra hours under the covers. But while shutting off your alarm may feel amazing, you might want to drag yourself out of bed at your normal wakeup time, according to preliminary research presented at SLEEP, the annual meeting of the Associated Professional Sleep Societies suggests.Social jetlag—sleeping in later on the weekends than weekends—may be harmful to your health, researchers from the University of Arizona say.After surveying more than 1,000 adults on their sleep habits, wellbeing, and health history, the researchers discovered that for every additional hour people reported sleeping on weekends compared to weekdays, their risk of heart disease increased by 11 percent.The results held true even after researchers adjusted for sleep length and insomnia symptoms, both of which have been separately linked to heart issues.Every hour spent sleeping was also linked to increases on ratings of … [Read more...] about Why Your Body Really Doesn’t Want You to Sleep In This Weekend
(Natural News) On January 18, 2017, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) published its final rule on organic livestock and poultry production practices, known as the Organic Animal Welfare Rule. This legislation represented the culmination of 14 years of hard work by Congress and organic stakeholders, and contained rules that had to be implemented in a structured way over the next five years. When a White House Memorandum was published just days later requesting a freeze on all recently published or pending rules, the implementation date was extended to 19 May 2017. The USDA then pushed that date back even further, and now the Organic Trade Association (OTA) is suing the regulator for failing to implement its own standards.The rule was established to provide for the humane treatment and slaughter of certified organic poultry and meat, and includes regulations regarding:Indoor and outdoor space for poultry;How to ensure the health and well-being of livestock during their lifetimes, … [Read more...] about Organic Trade Association sues the USDA for refusing to enforce its own organic livestock standards
I like to use my weekends as an opportunity to kick back with friends and loved ones, do the things I may have had to put off during the week, and maybe break my regular routine by staying up or sleeping in a little later than usual. The latter is something I know a lot of people tend to do on the weekends and you likely do, too. It’s normal to break your usual sleeping pattern on your days off; after all there’s no need to get up at the crack of dawn if you don’t feel like it, right? Wrong. As I recently found out, my weekend sleeping habits could end up threatening my health. You’ve likely heard time and time again that you should aim for six to eight hours of uninterrupted sleep per 24 hours. But does it matter when you get that sleep? According to a new Korean study, it does. Night owls tend to experience higher incidences of health problems than morning people. Those who go to bed early and are “morning types” are far less likely to have … [Read more...] about Planning to Sleep in This Weekend? Why You Shouldn’t
