Calling it a violation of constitutional rights, a federal appeals court on Wednesday voided a 2006 voter-approved measure which denied bail to those not in the country legally who were arrested for other crimes.
When Ahwatukee Foothills resident Tim Vitullo was completing his chemistry degree in 1995 and had the opportunity to learn from a compounding pharmacist who was creating his own combination of medications to give patients better treatment, it was a lesson he never forgot.
We hear of women with breast cancer. We raise money for breast cancer awareness. We have the whole month of October devoted to it. But do you really know the challenges women with breast cancer really face? As an occupational therapist specializing in pain management using myofascial release, I have treated a large number of women of all ages, usually through word of mouth as they hear about the therapy I perform. I could only imagine just how traumatic receiving a diagnosis of breast cancer is. Imagine what the initial shock one may feel when their doctor reveals the diagnosis to them. Decisions need to be made. Do I need a mastectomy? Do I have to undergo chemotherapy and radiation? Will the cancer go away? Will it come back? Do I choose alternative therapies? Do I reconstruct my breasts?
Sports drinks were first created in the 1960s. Gatorade, for example, was developed by researchers at the University of Florida to help athletes replace water lost as a result of exercise and exposure to heat and humidity. The product included water, small amounts of carbohydrates/sugars, and electrolytes. People who exercise, especially in the Arizona heat, need to replace water on a regular basis. However, experts indicate that, except for those who are vigorously active, special sports drinks are not necessary — water does the job.

Are you in pain? Do you feel like you have tried everything and the pain is still there? Did you know that our nervous system remembers trauma from injury? We walk around unaware of bracing patterns everyday. It’s that bracing and gripping feeling when you are getting out of bed in the morning, the clenching when getting out of the chair because your back hurts, or the cautiousness when using your arms because your shoulder hurts. The body remembers and your mind creates a story of the pain and the worst outcome possible. Then your pain becomes a habit, ruling your daily routine. This impacts your self-care, work life, and home life.
I live in Lakewood very near the intersection of 32nd Street and Pecos Road. The Loop 202 debate has been going on for years but on Sept 26 the final Environmental Impact Study (EIS) was released and I took note that this is becoming a reality. I read the information online and called the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) to inquire about the impact the highway would have on my neighborhood. I learned that none of the houses in my area were in the right of way, but I could not imagine how an eight-lane highway with a median, appropriate shoulders, and a sound wall barrier could possibly fit in the existing space.
A House Republican candidate is using video footage moments before the beheading of American James Foley in a campaign ad criticizing Arizona Democratic Rep. Kyrsten Sinema and her record on national security.
In the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) that was released by the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) just last Friday, Sept. 26, there is an embarrassing typo in the last section of Volume 1 that displays the list of “major contributors” in the 500-page document. This error stands out because the contributor has a high profile position with ADOT. This individual is a community relations manager and he has also been a frequent spokesperson for the proposed South Mountain Freeway. His name is Timothy Tait and in the column that displays “Years/Experience” on the Preparers page (PRE -3) it shows 153. How can anyone have 153 years of experience?
On Sept. 23 the Arizona Public Research Interest Group (PIRG) released a report that criticizes the proposed Interstate 11 as a “questionable expenditure of public resources.” This report makes some good points; that Americans are trending toward less reliance on personal vehicles, that development trends have been changing, and that public transportation ridership is up throughout Arizona. However, it ignores a broader vision and need for such a project.
