In the old days, an immigrant to America would go down to the docks and find a boat going to America. Because he didn’t have any money, he would have to sign up to be an indentured servant for five years to get a place on the ship.
We’ve all heard the adage “Use it or lose it,” and that couldn’t be more accurate in regards to our cognitive performance, with the first sign of an aging brain being that “tip of the tongue” phenomenon. We’ve come to accept that misplacing our keys, losing our train of thought mid-sentence, or forgetting the name of a familiar face is to be expected at about the same time we start needing reading glasses. Not necessarily so, report neuropsychologists and nutritional researchers. Although the brain can shrink as much as one-half to 1 percent annually in mid-life and memory starts to wane in our 30’s, there are things we can do to stave off this decline:
The unnamed woman with the weathered face stands on the corner of the street with her cardboard sign. The sign, like so many others around town reads, “Homeless and hungry. Anything helps. God bless.” Short and to the point the staccato sentences lay out the problem, tell us we have no excuse for not sharing something, and digs into our deepest held values. She doesn’t smile, but periodically salutes the oncoming traffic in a confident parody of Nixon’s classic V sign for victory, and of course, peace. Her gaze is largely fixed on the distance, as if mesmerized by the strip of shimmering pavement, interspersed by the bright shots of color as the vehicles flow by. Discretely hidden somewhere close by is her bicycle, and a few bags with her belongings. She’s not alone. Across the street is the man in whose company she’s often seen riding. They seem to trade off on corners, begging for relief, and preaching the gospel in silence.
Freedom of the press is essential, but in a community newspaper such as the Ahwatukee Foothills News we value the freedom of our readers, community and business leaders, among others to get the chance to contribute their opinions and specialities to the pages of the AFN, especially on our Opinion page.
Fall is the time for high school seniors to begin college applications. For many the college essay can seem daunting. What should I write about? How will I make my essay interesting to an admissions committee? Where do I begin? You actually have many remarkable stories to tell that will set you apart from other applicants. Let’s take a look at how you can thoughtfully approach this task.
"Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on My account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.” (Matthew 5:10-12).
Summer School … these two words can sound like a one- to two-month jail sentence for students in school.
If any piece of classic American literature should be depicted on film with wildly decadent and boldly inventive style, it's "The Great Gatsby." After all, who was the character of Jay Gatsby himself if not a spinner of grandiose tales and a peddler of lavish dreams?
Take note. This is an excellent question, and it may be the relief you and your family have been looking for.
It’s been nearly 10 years since his science-fiction indie “Primer” left audiences spellbound, which makes the arrival of Shane Carruth’s “Upstream Color” an even more momentous occasion.
The Federal Bureau of Prisons announced that it will review its policies on solitary confinement in light of evidence that this practice causes mental breakdown in prisoners. The devastating effects of solitary confinement can also be seen clearly in dogs who are kept chained “out of sight, out of mind” in their owners’ backyards.
The walls are white, the chairs are plastic, and the smiles are few. As you head down a hallway, cell blocks to the left and a gated recreation area at right, hearing bursts of laughter and lively chatter coming from a small room in front of you is slightly jarring, especially seeing as the boisterous classroom is inside Estrella Women’s Jail in central Phoenix.
After 24 years of marriage, Joe and Jane often finish each other’s sentences. So imagine how surprised they were when some differing goals emerged during a recent retirement income planning discussion with their financial advisor. As their advisor led the couple through an exercise designed to help them set retirement priorities, they discovered that Joe was eying a particular pocket of savings to enable his early retirement. Jane, on the other hand, viewed that same account as a fund for their children’s college education.
"Snitch” is a movie that knows what it wants to say, but fails to get its message across in a non conventional fashion. The film is loosely based on a “Frontline” documentary about Joey Settembrino, an 18-year-old who was sentenced to a minimum of 10 years in prison for selling LSD. The government offered Settembrino a reduced sentence in exchange for the names of drug dealers high up on the totem pole.
If "Side Effects" is indeed Steven Soderbergh's final film, as he's said it will be after toying with the notion of retirement for a couple of years now, then intriguingly it feels like he's coming full circle in some ways to the film that put him on the map: the trailblazing, 1989 indie "sex, lies and videotape."
Another legislative session, another day for the nanny state. The list of people whom government officials think are incapable of running their own lives now includes state lottery winners.
My guns are for the purpose of protecting innocent life from deadly violence should the occasion arise in which I have the opportunity to intervene. It is my simple moral responsibility to the assailant’s targets in that instant and later and indeed to the common good and to gentle civilization itself that I do so if I am able. If that occasion arose, and if I failed for not having carried my gun, my life would become a living hell of remorse and guilt.
Arizona parents may soon no longer have to worry about a child coming home from a carnival with a live goldfish in a bag.
