But she’s against Obamacare, convinced that it will wipe out her meager earnings. Next enrollment season,” she says, “theyre going to sock it to me. LAST PITCH On Tuesday afternoon, Diaz-Dempsey works an extra 10 minutes past her shift at the fair. She had started to gather her things, but then saw the crowds continue to gather at her table and jumped back in, making her three-sentence pitch. “Reina, you’re still here,” admonishes a co-worker. Finally, during a quiet moment, Diaz-Dempsey leaves her booth and heads into the fairs parking lot. A large crowd has gathered at the mini-race track for the Doberman races.

Poor sleep tied to kids’ lower academic performance

Dr. Carl Bazil, a neurologist and director of the division of epilepsy and sleep at New York Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center in New York City noted that this study fills a research void. “There’s growing information, mainly in adults, that you need good quality sleep to process and learn new information,” Bazil told Reuters Health. “It stands to reason that, if anything, sleep would be more important in children, but there’s very little information in children about sleep disturbance and learning.” Research has shown that sleep deprivation might affect certain parts of the brain, especially the frontal lobes. The frontal lobes control executive function, which is the ability to make decisions, form memories, plan for the future and inhibit socially undesirable behavior – like fighting with a classmate.

Sleep disorder multiplies depression risk

Health.com: 7 tips for the best sleep ever Six percent of men and 3% of women had received a sleep apnea diagnosis, the survey found, while 7% of men and 4% of women reported breathing problems on at least five nights per week. Depression was assessed using a standard questionnaire that asked how often during the past two weeks the participants had “little interest or pleasure in doing things” or felt “down, depressed or hopeless,” for instance. Five percent of men and 8% of women had scores indicating “probable” depression, according to the researchers. A complicating factor is that the effects of depression and sleep apnea can be difficult to distinguish, says psychiatrist Michael Weissberg, M.D., co-director of the insomnia and sleep disorders clinic at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, in Denver. “There probably is an important connection between depression and sleep apnea, but it’s hard to sort out who has what,” Weissberg says. “Sleep disruption, particularly insomnia, can be a risk factor for developing depression, and a lot of symptoms of people who have sleep apnea — they feel lousy, they can’t think straight — are similar to symptoms people have in depression.” Health.com: Signs of depression in men The study shows only an association, not cause and effect, and the researchers can’t rule out the possibility that an unidentified factor could contribute to both sleep apnea and depression.

Snoring in kids could mean other problems, doctors say

When he sleeps, it sounds like our neighbors are working on their chainsaw. He saws logs. So the statement that breastfeeding longer seems to protect kids from persistent snoring does not hold water. In fact, he has been the sickest of our 3 boys by far. We have a 7yr old, and the one I am referring to is almost 5, the other one is 3. The older and younger boys have been hospitalized once each.

Jump rope

Whether one’s tummy is in knots over a speech or one lacks the guts to undertake something, the fact remains: We think and feel with our guts as much as we do with our brains. Isn’t it logical, then, that a strong and healthy gut will spawn a healthy body and strong mind? Research suggests that the gut micro-flora lining the intestines are much more than just “good” or “bad” bacteria, and that their most important function is to regulate the body’s immune response, especially when faced with stress. This is a two-way street: Psychology and psycho-social factors influence the physiological functioning of the gut, and a healthy strong gut can help one stay mentally agile and fit.

You need guts to be happy no matter what: The importance of a healthy digestive system for enhanced immunity

The dog’s digestive process involves their mouth, esophagus, stomach, pylorus, small intestine, large intestine and the rectum. The liver and pancreas are also involved in the digestive process. When eating, most often a dog will wolf (pun intended) his food down, swallowing large chunks. This is thought to be a habit from the wild state, the days when the dog’s ancestors had to eat their food fast. As a prevention against acute indigestion, the dog’s stomach has high amounts of hydrochloric acid to break down the chunks passed from the mouth. The dogs stomach also has a good reverse action and can regurgitate food that may be too large.
