Dr. Guy Grabiak of Denver Dentistry is actively seeking a veteran in need of restorative dental care as part of his involvement with the Academy of Comprehensive Esthetics/Results, Production & Marketing (ACE/RPM) A Soldier?s Smile series of events. Dr. Grabiak, along with nearly two dozen dentists involved with the ACE/RPM marketing platform, will be performing free cosmetic and restorative dentistry treatments on a select serviceman or woman who is in dire need of oral health care. The vets selected are generally unable to afford the dental care they need or are ineligible through the VA because of their position in or out of the service.
The VA is helping ACE dentists to find soldiers and are very supportive of the campaign. In addition to the VA?s involvement, celebrity and former veteran Montel Williams has also sponsored the event and will be meeting with veterans and the dentists to discuss the transformations taking place. In some cases Montel and the ACE dentists will appear on national and local television to discuss the procedures and the need for the American community as a whole to give back to the men and women who fight for our freedom every day. As part of a relationship with the VA, the Fisher House Foundation has also formed an alliance with the ACE dental association. The Fisher House (fisherhouse.org) program is a unique private-public partnership that supports America’s military in their time of need. It is the hope of the ACE dentists, the VA, Montel Williams, and the Fisher House that the events gain enough traction so that they may be able to help many troops and so that other businesses and individuals contribute to giving back to people who need assistance.
Dr. Grabiak, one of Denver?s premier cosmetic and restorative dentists, will be donating his time, experience and expertise to help a troop in the coming months. He is an Air Force veteran and has completed three tours of duty where he received numerous awards and commendations for his service. “Given that I myself am a U.S. veteran, I understand the importance of giving back to the military community and the difference it can make in the lives of soldiers” notes Grabiak. In addition to his contribution to the A Soldier’s Smile events, Dr. Grabiak is also offering veterans and their family?s discounts on dental treatments up to 15% off.

Many players pre-ordered their copy of the pay-once-play-forever online game and overall the game shows good promise and one can see it will be enjoyed by players for a long time to come.

The in-game characters can rally together to form clans and compete against the other players, or go solo in the Player vs. Player mode.

For them, established gamers and beta testers of the game have come up with a Guild Wars 2 guide that teach players the ropes and get them building class leading characters in the shortest possible time. One example of a Guild Wars 2 Strategy Guide is the Tyria Guide ? painstakingly put together by the people who?ve published record smashing guides for SWTOR, Tera Online and Diablo 3.

We are composed of different blood types. Most individuals have Type O blood, others have Type A, still others are Type B while a rare few have Type AB blood. And according to a naturopathic doctor, Peter J. D’Adamo, there are foods that can and cannot be eaten by each blood type. In his books Eat Right 4 Your Type and Live Right 4 Your Type, D’Adamo explains why each blood type should and shouldn’t eat certain foods and the kinds of exercises that each blood type should undertake. The blood type diet of Dr. D’Adamo explains that the kind of blood type you have speaks of your body’s chemistry which affect how your body absorbs the nutrition it takes from the food eaten. Aside from its benefits to weight loss, the blood type diet is said to enhance immune system function, allows individuals to deal with stress well and increases energy levels. It is said to promote a general sense of wellbeing.
According to D’Adamo, Type O individuals should follow a low-carbohydrate diet but high-protein diet. Thus, they may eat fish, vegetables, fruit and fish. They should not focus their diet on grains as this could be detrimental to their health. Where exercise is concerned, Type O individuals should engage in aerobic exercises to stay fit. Those with Type A blood should avoid red meat, wheat and dairy products. Their diet should comprise mainly of fish, vegetables, beans, legumes, grains and tofu. The exercise regimen recommended for those with Type A blood are those that involve only gentle stretches like Yoga and meditation. Type B individuals may indulge in meat, dairy, vegetables, legumes and fruits. They should, however, avoid peanuts, chicken, lentils and corn. The recommended workouts for those with Type B blood are cycling and walking. For the rare persons possessing Type AB blood, seafood, dairy, legumes, beans, fruits and vegetables may be eaten but red meat, seeds and buckwheat should be avoided. A combination of calming and rigorous exercises is recommended for those with Type AB blood.
The blood type diet is based on the theory the red blood cells in the body are affected by “lectins” which are a type of protein found in all the foods we eat. When these lectins agglutinate or bind with the red blood cells, they can cause your blood to clump together and cause all sorts of illnesses. To promote overall health, you should eat the foods that are only compatible with your blood type.
While the medical community is not all convinced that the blood type diet really works– some medical experts claim that for as long as you have a healthy digestive system and have no other medical conditions, your body is well-equipped to handle all kinds of foods– those who have tried it say that it has not only helped them lose weight but has also improved their allergies significantly. It has also improved other conditions such as asthma, heartburn and headaches. According to Dr. D’Adamo, the health benefits can be experienced in as early as two weeks following the diet regimen. It also contributes to overall feelings of health and wellness.
Have you heard about the latest trend of taking blue green algae for health benefits? If you have not, it is the latest natural trend in keeping healthy. Although it may be be called blue green algae, it actually is not algae. Although it is aquatic and photosynthetic, it belongs to a group called cyanobacteria. They are relatives of bacteria, are unicellular and rather small so it is hard to see unless they grow in large colonies. They are the oldest known living fossils, having been around on Earth for over 3.5 billions years.
There are two main types of blue green algae. It is an important member of the food chain in both ponds and lakes worldwide. These 2 main types of algae are Aphanizomenon flos-aquae (also known as AFA) and Spirulina. AFA is harvested from the Upper Klamath Lake in Oregon, USA. It is then freeze dried to be sold in many forms such as capsules. AFA is considered the highest quality of blue green algae available. It is blue-green in color because it contains chlorophyll and phycocyanin. It also has plenty of vitamins and minerals, and is a great source of non-animal amino acids and protein.
Blue green algae is not only nutritious, but some people claim that it can cure or treat some medical conditions such as fatigue, allergies, hypoglycemia, depression, digestive problems, improve mental ability and memory, boost the immune system, as well as aid in detoxification. Not much research has been done to prove that this is the case though. However, there is one study that hints that it is possible that a compound found in blue-green algae may be helpful in treating Alzheimer’s Disease. This compound acts as an anti-cholinesterase. So far, there have no toxic or significant side effects reported in any kind of medical literature around the world, including the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine, as well as Conscious Eating, and Superfoods: The Food and Medicine of the Future by David Wolfe.
In the book, Super Immunity Foods, it highlighted the benefits of taking Spirulina as a supplement. The key benefits included being a rich source of iron, B12, essential fatty acids, high protein content, and the ability to assist in stabilizing blood sugars. It could also cleanse the body when the person was fasting. As a result, those who regularly detox or fast will find that blue-green algae supplements assist them to make sure that they are still having the essential nutrients.
In Brewer’s The Essential Guide to Vitamins, Minerals, and Herbal Supplements, it stated more health benefits. These include improving bad breath, lowering bad cholesterol, raising good cholesterol, and helping to decrease oral pre-cancerous lesions.
However, Brewer does mention some side effects. Before taking a blue-green algae supplement, your Doctor should be consulted especially for those who are on regular medication. These side effects include headaches, sweating, flushing, and having effects on those who have phenylketonuria. As a result, those who are going to take blue-green algae for its health benefits should consider taking only organic supplements.
When we think of eating to lose weight, we always associate it with diets that focus on specific portions and combinations of foods. It conveys images of strict calorie-counting that verges on starvation. From high-protein low-carbohydrate to lemon diet to crash diets and all other forms of dieting in between, weight loss diets are far from healthy. Most of the time, they are ill-designed and do not meet an individual’s nutritional requirements.
The primary objective of a healthy diet is not weight loss. It is the promotion and maintenance of good health. The World Health Organization gave five recommendations on the composition of a health diet: It achieves the right balance between energy and a healthy weight; work towards unsaturated fat consumption as it seeks the elimination of trans-fatty acids; increases consumption of fruits and vegetables, legumes, whole grains and nuts; limits the intake of simple sugars and limits salt or sodium consumption from all sources and ensures that salt is iodized. With these guidelines, a healthy diet prevents many health risks plaguing the nation today which include, among others, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and cancer.
Healthy diets, then, are not fad diets- the usual diets that those on the road to weight loss adhere to. Healthy diets are meals where all the various food groups are represented. It’s a diet with sufficient amounts of protein, carbohydrates and fats. It’s one where fruits and vegetables figure prominently. It’s also one where water is not neglected.
A healthy diet is not merely a matter of proper food choices. It’s also about healthy eating as well. This means eating a hearty breakfast to jumpstart your day and spreading the rest of your meals throughout in two to three hour intervals. It’s also about smaller portions which you can consume. Not only does this promote wise food spending, it keeps diseases that stem from overconsumption such as obesity, at bay. Healthy eating is also about wise shopping. It means going local for your produce such as fruits and vegetables. It means choosing fresh over preserved. It means going for what’s in season as well.
Healthy eating is also about enjoying mealtimes and chewing food well. It’s not using food as an excuse to vent frustration, anger or depression. It’s about meal planning, diet simplification and moderation. It’s also about living a healthy lifestyle where stress management and exercise form part of life.
When a person eats healthy, a fitter, better and well-balanced individual results. When people observe healthy eating habits and make healthy diets part of their lifestyle, obesity doesn’t become an issue. There would be no need for fad or crash diets that only serves to compound the problem. For those who are already faced with the serious health burden of shedding those extra pounds, all it really takes is the observance of healthy eating and dieting habits and exercise to jumpstart the road back to wellness. In the final analysis, healthy diets, healthy eating and a healthy lifestyle form part of one big package which can only be described as living a “high quality of life.”

The truth is that today 90 percent of the male population and 40 percent of the female population of video and computer games according to federal crime statistics and juvenile crime is very low and not on the rise. Criminals are rarely of games, more often than not it is broken by a number of factors such as homes, poverty, drug habits, and much more.
2. A popular belief is that video games increased aggression among children. Many studies use small sample area and not a fair sampling. Media hype promoting the conclusion of studies, poor methodology or analysis. Violence is everywhere around us in the news, in the movies and much more. The worst is that shows aggression anger on the streets. While the violence in games is not a primary factor that leads to aggressive behavior. Kids need to be exposed to a holistic lifestyle and have good values ??in them deeply at home and at school. Research has in no way a direct connection between play and violence, although many who were in school shooting players.
3. Video and computer games are for kids. That is a fact, were a few years now gamers aged about 60-80 years. Gaming is a passion with the young and old, and advances in technology have a following among adults too. Games are rated so that parents can smart choices when buying games.

5. Video and computer games are exclusively for boys and men. While there is some truth in this, today is the female gender? Shoulder to shoulder? seek with the men in all areas. The statistics show that more women now play web-based games than men, and there are many women who are in the design and production of games.
6. Games teach children to kill. While the military uses games to train soldiers not there is no logical conclusion that every child who plays video or computer game is a soldier. Soldiers have a different profile, and it is the military training that they not only soldiers gaming. In fact, James Gee in his book? What video games have to teach us about learning and reading? Sets the? Learning potential? Games, games and inculcate problem solving skills and teaches player to player team players.
7. Games are a waste of time is a great faith. In fact, expert evidence, that games can be positive if handled correctly. Children or adults need their gaming activities and life in other hobbies, too. to allow gamers to play games according to the research role and important nation-building decisions. The players can experience first hand what make the decisions in the episode, according to this research, it makes the consequences of their actions before a game not only I but also in real life.
8. Video games are loners. Video and computer games are not to isolate. In fact, most players play in teams with people around the world.

ArenaNet, developer of the hit online multiplayer game Guild Wars 2, has announced a second stress test for the up-and-coming MMORPG in order to test the limits of its servers. The stress test will take place on Wednesday, June 27th.
Guildwars2release.net, the leading online resource for all the latest news on Guild Wars 2, explained that the stress test is a fantastic opportunity for fans of the game to have a second ?sneak peak? at how it plays, as the developers are requesting the assistance of gamers.
The stress test is ideally timed for European gamers, taking place from 10 am to 2 pm PST on June 27, although for American gamers the timing is not so good.
According to Guildwars2release.net, the developers have not wiped any characters from previous beta tests of the game, so those who took part before will be able to pick up their quest from where they left off last time.
Even so, Guildwars2release.net warn gamers that they shouldn?t get too attached to these characters, as they will almost certainly be deleted when the game is officially launched.
Dan Lim, editor of Guildwars2release.net, explained that the second stress test is taking place not because there are problems with the game?s servers, but simply because the developers want to collect more data.
?ArenaNet have apparently added some new hardware to their servers, as these were overloaded during the first stress test. Everything is expected to run perfectly this time ? we believe that this second test is little more than a data collection exercise ahead of the game?s launch, which we expect will be later this year,? explained Dan Lim.
As of yet, there has been no public release date announced for Guild Wars 2. Previously, it was strongly rumored that the game would be released to the public on June 28, although Guildwars2release.net believe that this date is looking extremely unlikely now.
?We expect that the developers will certainly give gamers some advance warning, so it?s looking likely that the official release won?t be until July or possibly even later,? added Dan Lim.
Guildwars2release.net is the leading online resource for all the latest news, tips and updates for the up-and-coming Guild Wars 2 MMORPG game, which is expected to be released later this year. The website is packed with news, articles and previews of the game, and has become the first port of call for all fans looking for the latest information surrounding its release.
