Utah cardiologist Dr. Jeffrey Anderson commented in a recent KSL report saying that the damage to vessels and the heart is obvious and recognizable. Commenting on the pollution and ingesting process he commented, “they are so small that they can exchange into the circulation of the blood as they pass through the lungs, circulate around, and... (more)

A Time For Cheers, A Time For Tears

By Glenn T, published on Aug 13, 2008

... of pundits waxing on about the over-commercialization of the Olympics. And I've endured at least a year of political protest and political impact stories about these latest Games. To be certain, it is globally and historically significant that they are being held in the epicenter of communist China, Beijing. Despite my initial skepticism, this edition of the Summer Games is very much China's "coming out party". Which they are in dire need of.

The last time most of us remember China in the world news involved the same Tiananmen Square prominently featured in the Beijing... (more)

By Lumiere, published on Jul 21, 2008

...that there was a time when quality in a name, the American namemattered to us. Manufacturing quality products, goods and services mattered to us. A good reputation meant everything. We took pride in American Made goods, in generating our own ideas, instead of importing cheap products from China or other countries. It is time to be the best at something other than entertainment and war;companies in American weapons manufacturing like Raytheon, Grumman, General Dynamics and Boeing Helicopter need to fade out of the spotlight like badly processed, imposterAmerican cheese.

Why The Olympics Should Not Be Boycotted

By ddrapayo, published on Jul 11, 2008

There has been much discussion about nations boycotting the 2008 Summer Olympic Games in Beijing, China, later this summer. While it is true that China has human rights problems with Tibet and Darfur, and these should not be condoned, the Olympics are a time of peace. As the Visa commercial says "there are 6 billion of us. We may not always get along, but for a few shining weeks, we forget about what makes us different, and focus on what makes us the same." This is the founding principle of the Olympics. In ancient times, truces were made, and wars called off, so people could watch the Olympic... (more)
