At hospitals throughout New Jersey—particularly our children’s hospitals—shortages of basic and extraordinarily vital medications are cropping up at an alarming rate. In the case of Bactrim, the situation is all the more dire; winter is just around the corner, one of the prime times during the year for contracting pneumonia.
I’m one of those “job creators” members of Congress profess to admire so much. Thirty-two years ago, my partner and I started a small business with $300 worth of old records and a booth at the local farmers market. We’re now the biggest independent music store in St. Louis and employ 22 people. Our annual revenue is around $2 million. We’re a classic American success story.
A new report prepared for the Civil Society Institute (CSI) shows that the Department of Defense has served as an incubator for some of our most important technologies. The CSI report – “Department of Defense: Renewable Energy & Tech Transfer” – had a collection of interesting findings, and framed the discussion of renewable energy in a different and distinct light.
I really thought that I had finally gotten through to some organizations in regards to name labels. Well, it just doesn’t seem to be the case, because I’ve gotten any number addressed to my husband who’s been gone over 20 years. I do know for a fact that I’m not alone in that direction. If there’s a pre-stamped envelope enclosed, I return it with the notation that he’s deceased over that many years.

On 31 October, the world’s population is projected to reach 7 billion. The 7 billionth person will be born into a world that is very different from when the United Nations was founded in 1945, when our numbers were only about a third of what they are today.
When Nietzsche wrote the memorable maxim “What does not kill me, makes me stronger,” he wasn’t talking about viruses—but he could have been.
Obesity rates have climbed dramatically both in New Jersey and nationally. In New Jersey alone, the percentage of residents who are obese was 24 percent in 2010, which has risen from 14 percent in 1995. This rise in obesity is harming the overall health of residents as obesity is a contributing cause of many other health problems, including heart disease, stroke, diabetes and some types of cancer.
In the 1980s, I was an unrefined adolescent from blue-collar Butler, Pennsylvania. I knew nothing and cared nothing about politics. I had no idea if I was a conservative or liberal, Democrat or Republican, or much of anything else. But I knew one thing: Moammar Kaddafi was a bad dude.
I am amazed how often Republican climate skeptics such as Texas Governor Rick Perry are called “global-warming-deniers”.
