"The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.” We’re hearing this wonderful admonition a lot these days. Apparently, the original source is an old Chinese proverb, one more importation from America’s trading partners and it’s a good one.
Bert and Ernie jump rope and munch apples and carrots, and Cookie Monster has his namesake treat once a week, not every day. Can a Muppets mini-makeover improve kids’ health, too?

The chapter of 2013 is closed, and by the time this ‘Tukee Talk is published 2014 will be 10 days old, meaning many are still trying to stick to their New Year’s resolutions.
Some cooks like to change up the Thanksgiving meal — a sous vide turkey here, a sweet potato souffle there. But on a holiday dedicated to tradition, innovation can spark revolt.
Budget battles never seem to end in Washington, DC. And, like a real battle, there are casualties. Among them are people with diseases and disabilities hoping for new medical breakthroughs.
When it was time for Ahwatukee Foothills resident Michelle Milich to get a new dog she figured an American Bulldog, known for no major health problems and low grooming, would be a good choice. She had a family member looking to get rid of an American Bulldog and the timing seemed like fate, but looking back Milich had no idea what fate had in store.
Maya is a 4 1/2-year-old American Pit Bull/Chinese Shar-Pei mix. She originally came to the Arizona Animal Welfare League on March 1, 2012, and then adopted exactly a month later. She was then returned to AAWL earlier this year when it was found that while she is very social and loves the dog park and other dogs, she isn’t a fan of living in the same home with them. Maya is a very shy girl and it takes a while for her to warm up to any new human friend, but once she does, she has a way of stealing your heart and making you fall for her.

In the 1990s valuable medical research began to appear on using acupuncture and Chinese herbs, along with patients doing In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). What was known for thousands of years with patients not having Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) is that Chinese medicine increases a couple’s chance of getting pregnant. With a German study being published in 2002 they found that it increased the patients success up to 60 percent. After this study many countries, including America, have conducted their own studies. Over and over again the results are the same. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs increase the percentage rate of a woman’s chance in getting pregnant.
