Walking is fine exercise but it does result in more carbon dioxide released in the atmosphere.Read More Glixon would be better off to study climate change rather than blindly proselytizing. The area where she walked was under a couple hundred feet of ice 20,000 years ago and there weren't many people around releasing carbon. By the way, if there are any scientists at the Union of Concerned Scientists, they certainly don't act like scientists.

Great event for a gear cause! My daughter Joy was born at 23 weeks last year. Due to modern medicineRead More and prayers she is doing great today. I hemorrhaged at 17 weeks for the first of 4 times because of 100% placenta previa, which turned into placenta accreta (which I believe was caused by 3 prior c-sections). After she came home from 121 days in the NICU, I wrote a memoir called "From Hope To Joy" about my life-threatening pregnancy and my daughter's 4 months in the NICU (with my 3 young sons at home), which is now available on both the Amazon and Barnes&Noble websites. It was quite a roller coaster that I am certain some of you have been on or are currently riding on. My mission is to provide hope to women struggling with high-risk pregnancies, encourage expectant mothers to educate themselves before electing cesarean deliveries, provide families of premature babies a realistic look at what lies ahead in their NICU journey, and show that miracles can happen, and hope can turn into joy. Please see my website http://www.micropreemie.net and www.facebook.com/jenniferdegl and watch our amazing video of my daughter’s miracle birth and life at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V_hleySg-iU Thank you.

http://www.jdc.org/ JDC, the world's leading Jewish humanitarian assistance organization TyphoonRead More Haiyan Relief With reports of a growing number of deaths and catastrophic destruction, there is already an urgent need for immediate humanitarian assistance as Typhoon Haiyan continues its path of devastation. JDC staff experts are consulting with local authorities, the Filipino Jewish community, and global partners to assess the unfolding situation on the ground. The typhoon, one of the strongest storms in recorded history, has caused widespread damage to the Philippines, especially the hardest-hit central city of Tacloban, and is barreling its way towards Vietnam. Hundreds of thousands of Filipinos are inaccessible as they remain without power and shelter.
