It’s a meeting of holidays so rare it will be tens of thousands of years before it happens again. Thanksgiving and the first day of Hanukkah — the Jewish Festival of Lights — fall on the same day this year, creating what many celebrants have dubbed “Thanksgivukkah.” And it’s opened up a whole new world of culinary opportunities.
We schedule annual check-ups for ourselves, our kids, our pets, our cars…what about our homes?
Every Thanksgiving presents the same challenge — how to juggle the turkey and the stuffing and the pie and all those sides in just one oven.
A recent opinion was published in the AFN indicating that we at AZ PASS (Arizona People Acting for a Safer Society), a local grass-roots organization dedicated to reducing gun violence, have only “smoke and mirrors” behind our views.
New York City has a zillion charms, but it may not be the ideal place to celebrate Halloween. Here’s the problem — where do you display your jack-o’-lantern if you live in an apartment building with no porch?
There are three killer insults on the body: oxidation, autoimmunity and inflammation. We need some level of inflammation to stay healthy so tissue and wounds heal from infections and injuries, however, when the inflammatory response becomes chronic problems occur. Chronic inflammation is unseen by the eye and a silent killer that accelerates aging, prevents fat loss and increases risk of disease.
Many people characterize the month of September as the beginning of the fall season, yet it’s also recognized as National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month.
The noises that your loved ones make while they are sleeping may be telling you a story. Snoring and grinding of teeth are two very common sounds heard by spouses, parents, and loved ones. The National Sleep Foundation (NSL) states that snoring affects 37 million Americans on a regular basis, and multiple studies have found that 17 percent of children snore. According to a 2005 study by researchers at Children’s Hospital in Boston, more than one-third of parents reported they hear their children grind their teeth at night. The NSL reports that 8 percent of adults are heard grinding their teeth at night.
"Reclusive." Is that an adjective, or is it actually part of J.D. Salinger's name? The word has been used so often to describe the famous writer, one could be forgiven for thinking it appears on his birth certificate.
The Bagnall Company was recently selected by Mohave Educational Services Cooperative to provide a new online wellness portal powered by Alere to the members of the Cooperative.
Mr. Bryan Brinkley of Arizona People Acting for a Safer Society (AZ PASS) wrote a guest commentary in the AFN on Aug. 30, titled “Should guns be loved more than other people?” in which he seems to be offended that AFN published two rebuttals by a “loud minority in the community” to the stance that he and his organization represent.
"Mad Men" meets "The Artist" in "Populaire," a superbly crafted, finely acted but somewhat shallow retro rom-com about a young French secretary who, with the help of her highly persuasive boss, hammers her way to becoming one of the fastest typists on the planet.
The 1980s had New Kids on the Block; the '90s had the Backstreet Boys; and now boy bands are resurgent again with British group-of-the-moment One Direction, currently a chart-topping global pop phenom. While hardly a very incisive look at the band or its five individual singers — who are barely old enough to even have personal histories — Morgan Spurlock's documentary "One Direction: This Is Us" should score big with kids.
Let’s be clear, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) is not socialism or communism no matter how many times you hear the Tea Party and Fox News denounce “Obamacare” as such. While not perfect at all given the many political compromises required, the PPACA is making a big positive difference for individuals and families in our country, including improving their individual and economic freedoms.
"You hear nothing. You see nothing. You only serve." Such are the instructions Cecil Gaines receives as he embarks on his daunting new job at the Eisenhower White House in "Lee Daniels' The Butler."

In talking to Mountain Pointe coach Norris Vaughan and his counterpart at Bishop Gorman, Tony Sanchez, this week I started to get an idea of some of the details of the Sollenberger Classic.
In March, area resident Jules Demetrius went to the doctor with severe stomach pain and was immediately sent to the emergency room.
The classic caprese salad — tomatoes paired with fresh mozzarella and torn, peppery basil leaves — is such a delicious blast of summer.
They huddle outside office buildings and they can’t satisfy their nicotine cravings by lighting up on planes and trains, but now smokers could be getting a break from an unlikely source.
On June 24 Kim Bergman woke up around 3 a.m. to a slight orange glow coming through her window and sighed at the thought of getting out of her comfortable bed. It wasn’t until she heard the smoke alarm going off that she realized something about that glow wasn’t right.
Casseroles have never really had much of a place in my culinary repertoire. It’s a time thing mostly. I’d rather sear something off in a few minutes than stand around while it slowly bakes.
We are a month into summer vacation, have you heard the dreaded “I’m bored” phrase yet? Quite honestly, I don’t hear that phrase very often around this house; I try to keep our boys quite busy with adventures, etc. But this year I hadn’t put much thought into our summer fun days, there will be hiking and camping in the mountains, fishing, swimming — pretty standard things we do every summer. But this year will be a little different.
Space matters. Inner space, outer space, living space, worship space, green space, and personal space, it all matters. Ask anyone who’s lived in high density housing, like the projects, just how much space matters. Watch the news for a wake-up call on how living space can mean the difference between a chance at healthy living, and a high probability of disease. But our living space isn’t just about square footage in our home, the size of our yard, or the size of our office. As a matter of spiritual health, we also have to be attentive to our inner space, because that space governs so much of how we function in all the other spaces of daily life.
