Ronald Reagan’s famous quote, “We declared war on poverty and poverty won,” has come in for some harsh criticism lately. For example, Linda Valdez of The Arizona Republic recently excoriated the Gipper for his “cynicism,” pointing out that a “great nation does more than make jokes at the expense of the poor.”
Comic book movies are increasingly, like Sandra Bullock in "Gravity," lost in space.
As I follow the recent controversy over naming, identity, and cultural representation connected with the NFL’s Washington football team’s nickname and mascot, “Redskins,” I am surprised and confused that there is such vocal resistance to changing the name not just a few deem a racial slur that offends (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/tag/washington-redskins-name-controversy).

We all know that the Star Trek mission is “to explore strange new worlds” and “seek out new life and new civilizations,” so it’s only logical that the Starship Enterprise would eventually end up at the Arizona State Fair. Nestled amongst the “Bacon A-Fair” food stands and “Tilt-A-Whirl” thrill rides, “Star Trek: The Exhibition” has landed.
The Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) Soldier Ride will be in Phoenix on Oct. 17 for a three-day rehabilitative cycling event.
Last month, two events occurred in the same week that once again had us searching for answers. On Sept. 16, a heavily armed civilian contractor with a history of disorders fatally shot 12 people at the Washington Navy Yard. Later that week, terrorists attacked a shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya, in a three-day rampage that resulted in the deaths of at least 61 civilians and six Kenyan soldiers.
Every cell in the body continually carries out millions of biochemical processes requiring oxygen. By-products of this cellular metabolic process are unstable electrons called oxidants or “free radicals.” Unfortunately, these free radicals are not harmless. Their chief danger comes from the damage they incur upon cellular structures or DNA. ANTI-oxidants reduce the effects of dangerous oxidants by binding with them, thereby, decreasing their destructive power. Food sources of antioxidants include those with high levels of vitamin A, C, E, and beta-carotene, such as spinach and liver. Anti-oxidants are thought to have a role in slowing the aging process, preventing heart disease, and protecting against the development of cancers.
When a soldier returns from war there may be unseen wounds they have and are not able to be easily patched up.

As a mental health therapist it has been my privilege to work with some veterans of the Vietnam, Gulf, Iraq, and Afghanistan wars. Of course, from the news media, TV, and Internet, we know of their sacrifices and their willingness to risk their lives for their country. Since 9/11 hundreds of thousands have served, and many have paid with their lives or with serious life altering injuries. Other wounds equally serious, such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), are less visible. About 20 percent of all those who have served in combat suffer from these disorders. PTSD and/or TBI can result in acute anxiety, depression, and/or cognitive impairment, which can impede work and the formation of healthy relationships that most of us take for granted.

Hosea Graham has a smooth stride these days.
Humanity's home planet hardly merits the name-check in "After Earth," M. Night Shyamalan's sci-fi survival tale whose shipwreck action could (with the exception of a scene where our hero scrawls a crude map over Lascaux-like cave paintings) take place on any old life-supporting globe in the cosmos. The disappointingly generic film, which strands a father and son (Will and Jaden Smith) on Earth a thousand years after a planet-wide evacuation, will leave genre audiences pining for the more Terra-centric conceits of "Oblivion," not to mention countless other future-set films that find novelty in making familiar surroundings threatening. Will Smith's presence, not just as co-star but as originator of the story, seems likely to carry box office receipts beyond the benchmark of Shyamalan's previous picture, the wretched "The Last Airbender," but those hoping for a franchise should navigate elsewhere.
If you grew up in the early 90s, you probably remember an animated feature from 20th Century Fox called “FernGully: The Last Rainforest.” It was the environmentally-conscious movie every 90s kid saw, and yet, nobody really liked. The film’s intentions might have been good, but even the youngest children seemed to find its blatant green message overly preachy. The fact that “FernGully” was lacking in any interesting characters or magic didn’t help. “Epic,” which was also coincidentally distributed by Fox, is a bit like “FernGully” if it had smarter, more imaginative filmmakers backing it. While it’s not a massive improvement, “Epic” is at least fun, energized, and subtle with its environmental themes.
