Women are different from men. Physiologically speaking, hormonal differences begin at conception; sex hormones influence physiologic development through all ages from infancy, puberty, the reproductive years, and continuing for longevity. A man and a woman can both become body builders, but the differences in each one’s musculature, skeletal physiology or neurologic physiology will remain different. The list of physiologic differences can go on, but one of the most interesting new bits of knowledge is the greater understanding that even cardiovascular (having to do with the heart and blood vessels) physiology is different between the male and the female of our species.
Light serves a profound function in our lives. Receive too much or too little of it and you’ll experience physical and emotional effects. I remember visiting Alaska in the summer and reading a book by sunlight at 2 in the morning. This was a pretty cool experience, but it made it quite difficult to sleep during my normal times. I also have many friends who live in Seattle and talk about the lack of sunlight they receive on a regular basis. It’s not uncommon for a person to choose where she lives based on the light available in that state. Light affects everything.

On this 45th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, I was already pondering the place of the LBTGQ community in our society when the news broke of CNBC “outing” Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple Inc. It was a painful reminder that, despite significant gains in recent years, there is still a perception problem regarding people’s sexual orientation or self-identification.
Saying there was more than enough evidence to proceed, the state's Citizens Clean Elections Commission voted Thursday to launch a full probe into whether Attorney General Tom Horne has been using state employees and resources to campaign for reelection.
Claiming new evidence of a pattern of misconduct, Attorney General Tom Horne on Tuesday asked a federal judge to dissolve the police department that patrols the polygamous twin communities of Colorado City and Hildale, Utah.
Millions of Americans fought and died to establish and preserve our constitutionally guaranteed right to liberty. Why doesn’t that tell our elected officials where our priority lies? Without our liberty our lives, and more importantly the lives of our children, are reduced to centralized government tyranny and slavery.
I find it fascinating that the Lord sometimes asked people what they wanted Him to do for them. He already knows everything. Everything. Nothing is hidden from him. Matthew 6:8 says, “Your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.”
Mistakenly labeled the “guns-everywhere” bill by gun control advocates, a recently-enacted Georgia law opens churches, sports arenas, recreation centers and other formerly gun-banned spaces to gun-carrying occupants. It’s still not “guns everywhere,” however. It’s “guns almost everywhere.” And as nothing else could, the glaringly significant exception betrays the gun lobby’s lying hypocrisy.
When I work with teens, there are certain topics that are often more emotionally charged than others. One such topic is the quality of their relationship with one or both parents. Before I even begin to impart strategies for strengthening this relationship, I always ask the following two questions:
My role in resurrecting a dead criminal case began a few weeks back with an out-of-the-blue phone call courtesy of a private eye named Don Corbett. He phoned with news of a strange case with ties to a Mesa woman and an impending trip to Scottsdale for an interview or potentially an interrogation.
There are tremendous responsibilities and potential liabilities that come with owning a dog. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports there are approximately 4.7 million dog bites per year, resulting in 800,000 injuries that require medical attention. Half of those injuries are to people under the age of 18.
It was my first year at the University of Arizona and I spent it housed in the Yuma dorm, Room 306. Going from a small charter school to living in a dorm with more people than I graduated high school with could be considered a bit of a “culture shock.” There are so many dynamics to the dorm experience, starting with the reputation of the dorm you’re about to inhabit and the small 10-foot-by-10-foot dorm room you’ll be sharing with one or possibly more human beings. You’d be surprised how cramped a small room for two can feel when you introduce a roommate’s girlfriend (or boyfriend for the ladies) to the equation. Not to mention what it’s like to have to share bathrooms with and fight for laundry space with a floor’s worth of people. It may test your patience and gross tolerance levels, but if you do it right it’ll turn out to be one of the neatest experiences of your life and a chance to develop some life-long relationships.
