Ah, summertime in Arizona. A time for cooling off in the backyard swimming pool, barbecuing with family and neighbors and planning our seasonal escapes to cooler climates. It’s also the time when living in an energy-efficient home can mean the difference between receiving a monthly electricity bill that’s manageable and one that causes your blood to boil.
There’s no denying that as aesthetic medicine has advanced into the mainstream by opening new markets and broadening the realistic potential base, patients have begun to demand better results, less discomfort, decreased risk and less downtime with the aesthetic procedures they choose to peruse.
Beginning today, pawnbrokers can charge higher interest, bigger prizes will be available at some bars and restaurants, and some cough medicines will be off-limits to minors. State health officials will be able to inspect abortion clinics without first getting a warrant.
With a new school year on the horizon, it’s time to think about what’s for lunch. Brown bagging it is plenty economical, but a steady diet of sandwiches becomes boring pretty quickly, to say nothing of the fact that all those servings of refined carbs simply don’t provide the energy necessary to power you through a long afternoon.
It’s hard to believe that approximately 20 years ago, a home demo called “Shine” shot straight up the charts and launched a little-known group from Stockbridge, Ga., called Collective Soul. From there, it was all a blur.
Nearly 80 percent of Americans admit they feel tired, exhausted, low energy, fatigue and experience too much stress. Many mistakenly link it to getting older. Contrary to popular belief, low energy and fatigue are not inevitable consequences of getting older.
Research has shown that sugar is addictive … in fact, eight times addictive as cocaine. In 1821, each person consumed approximately 10 pounds of sugar annually. Today, that number is an astounding 160-190 pounds of sugar per person annually. On top of that about 55 percent of the sugar produced in the U.S. comes from sugar beets, 95 percent of which have been genetically engineered.
SRP’s Powering Our Future workshops have been powering the future of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education in Arizona schools for about a decade, reaching an estimated 15,000 students annually.
Few shifts in American customs and politics will ever equal the one launched a brief eight years ago by the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transsexual (LGBT) community.

It’s estimated that 30 million Americans have some form of thyroid disease. Half of those are silent sufferers who go undiagnosed. If you’re a woman over 35, your odds of a thyroid disorder are high, more than 30 percent by some estimates.
Arizona’s story of growth and prosperity came through access to a supply of low-cost energy and water that is now at risk. Before World War II, Arizona was a desert outpost — a stopover on the way to California. As the post-war economy blossomed, Arizona remained the rugged West. But a few visionaries who happened to call Arizona home knew this state could be so much more. But to make that vision a reality, they needed one thing: Water.
With much at stake for Arizona, a group of very different interests recently gathered to best determine how to provide certainty for our energy future while balancing the environmental impacts on national parks in the Southwest — in particular the Grand Canyon.

Recently, I’ve had many cases involving dogs that have extremely high prey drives. Dogs have a natural instinct for hunting prey. Smell and motion of other animals will instantly attract a dog to their instinctive prey drive. Of course, with domesticated dogs, we feed them so they don’t have to hunt. To ensure your dog views your family cat as a “pack member” and NOT a “pack prey-toy,” follow the below simple tips:
Nearing his 30-year mark of practice in the East Valley, with 20 of those years in Ahwatukee, Dr. Pete Pinto remembers the moment he knew he wanted to help others with natural and holistic health care.
