I have already posted some photos taken at Vivid. I also on two occasions took sequences of still photos that I converted into time lapse sequences and then combined them together to make a longer video. Here it is –
I spent a pleasant day walking down the Two Valleys Track from Bexley North to Tempe. It had been raining and I was hoping some fungi would be out after such a poor fungi season so far. There was some out. I also took along camera gear to photograph birds.
(CNN) — Addiction is a familial disease for Chris Herren.
“I grew up in a family that suffered from alcoholism,” he said.
Herren was a basketball legend around his hometown of Fall River, Massachusetts. The McDonald’s All-American was courted by several top colleges and received numerous honors. No one knew his big secret.
“I did my first line of cocaine at 18, and it took 14 years to stop,” Herren told CNN. “Hiding this addiction was a full-time job.”
Herren upped his game, from college hoops to the NBA’s Boston Celtics and Denver Nuggets. But his addiction grew, too — from cocaine and Vicodin to heroin.
In ancient Indian belief, the body houses seven centers of spiritual power called the chakras. The chakras are aligned by the spine, starting from the root and ending at the crown of the head. Prana, or life force, moves through these chakras to keep the body vibrant and healthy – but when a chakra is blocked, this can result in physical and mental problems.
Listening to music is one way to unblock your chakras. We’ll take you through the seven types of music for each chakra:

Reductive reactions are indicated with red arrows. Arrow 1 corresponds to the reactions involving ATP sulfurylase and other enzymes that take part in the initial steps of the sulfate assimilation pathway. Reactions 2 to 5 are non-enzymatic and result in the net conversion of reduced glutathione (GSH) into oxidized glutathione (GSSG). Reaction 6 is also non-enzymatic and results in the formation of diverse reactive oxygen species. Adapted from , ,  and .
Do you have a big event coming up where you want to look your best? You have the perfect outfit, but if only there was something you could do about whitening your teeth… Well, the good news is there is a way to improve your smile. Whitening your teeth can instantly take years off of your appearance and boost your smile-confidence. Teeth that have been stained or darkened by highly pigmented food, tobacco use, aging which contributes to thinning enamel, medications or injury can be lightened by means of a non-invasive process known as teeth whitening. Dr. Bryan Fujii at your 93030 dental office can help you achieve a winning smile.
Teeth whitening or bleaching refers to any process that will make the teeth appear whiter. While there are many over the counter options for teeth whitening like strips, gels, and toothpastes, the most effective and safest teeth whitening systems are the professional strength ones available at the 93030 dental office. Many of these over-the-counter products contain abrasives, which may actually harm your teeth. A dental professional whitening system offers a higher concentration of whitening components and delivers them to the teeth in the most efficient manner to achieve optimal results.

Green tea is often touted as a miracle drink for everything from preventing cancer to increasing heart health and has even been shown to improve memory and other cognitive processes. One of the most referenced health benefits, though, is green tea’s remarkable ability to help people lose weight. But is there any science to back it up?
The two effective ingredients in green tea for weight loss are caffeine and epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). Both work to raise the body’s metabolism and the caffeine especially provides energy that can make efforts at exercise more effective. For a while, a lot of debate occurred over whether any weight-loss efforts attributed to green tea was in reality only due to its caffeine content. To find out, a team of researchers used 14 healthy male subjects and gave half of them a decaffeinated dose of green tea extract, while the other half took a placebo. By the end of the 4-week study, which also involved timed exercise three days a week, those who had taken the decaffeinated green tea extract reduced their body fat by 1.63%, and had risen their fat oxidization rates by 25% when compared with the placebo group. Those taking the tea also noted that their performance during the exercises had risen by 10.9%.
