What do you think? Can porn be addictive? More mental health professionals are telling us “yes it can,” and further, it can be as addictive as hard-core drugs and it’s known to change the health of the brain.
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.
In my monthly book club group we open the discussion with just a word and a number — how much we enjoyed the book on a scale of 1-10 and one word that best describes it for us.
Arizona restaurant patios are teeming with patrons, the stores are filled with holiday decorations, and daytime temperatures have dipped into the 80s. Fall has arrived in Arizona, and that means it’s also the beginning of flu season.

In its sedulous efforts to accelerate the already rapid dumbing of America, Fox News is intensifying its suppression of economic facts. In John Stossel, Fox evidently has a sincere but stupid dispenser of preposterous misinformation.
"You will know her name," scream the posters for the new big-screen version of "Carrie," as if anyone could forget it after seeing Brian De Palma's brilliant 1976 movie or reading the original Stephen King novel.
I once heard pastor and author Andy Stanley say that there are two simple, yet important questions for any organization to answer: “What business are we in?” and “How’s business?” His point: identifying what you’ve set out to do and evaluating the results is a great way to measure how much (or how little) you’re growing.
Wellness is a term that has gained in popularity in recent years. Wellness is used as a name for a variety of products and programs, and as a result the term is sometimes misused. The President’s Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition Digest defines wellness as “a multidimensional state of being describing the existence of positive health in an individual as exemplified by quality of life and a sense of well-being.” Adopting healthy lifestyles, including being regularly active and eating well, are “processes” that lead to the “products” of health and wellness.

In “Prisoners,” director Denis Villeneuve is allowed the privilege few lesser known filmmakers have these days: The chance to not only make a multimillion-dollar American movie with A-list actors, but to also see his vision to the end. It would have been easy for the studio to step in and dumb this material down to another Hollywood thriller. Watching the film, you feel nothing short of grateful that the project was helmed by Villeneuve, whose “Incendies” received an Oscar nomination for Best Foreign Film. Give him an intelligent script by Aaron Guzikowski in addition to a faultless cast, and you’ve got a recipe for one of the most distinctive crime dramas since “Mystic River.”
Parenting involves countless mundane decisions — dozens a day. But as any parent knows, the potential for tragedy stemming from a wrong decision is never far from the surface of the mind. What if they go out and get hit by a car? What if I look away and they drown in the current? What if they get kidnapped?
I am a longtime resident of Ahwatukee, raising three children as a single parent, and also having the wonderful privilege of working as a psychologist in private practice serving a wide range of individuals of all ages and backgrounds.
