The first thing to remember is art is in the eye of the beholder. We have all heard this from time to time. Talking about and creating art for the majority of my life has lead me to so much more than pencils and paper. I now have the ability to see something and make it happen. For example, I wanted to build a front porch on our home. I didn’t hesitate or think to myself “can I do this?” because I already knew I could. I knew because I have the basic mental, math, and creative skills to do it. If a professional builder would come to inspect my deck, they may notice it isn’t the exact way they would have done it. This doesn’t mean what I did was wrong, every person does it differently. I did my research and I made it happen. Art has given me more confidence in everyday life. I want to encourage you to try something new. If someone feels like they can share what they made with you, be kind and honest. Kindness creates a world where more good can happen.
“Granny’s Biscuits and Gravy”
When politics comes down to rigidly opposing views, all of these facts are ignored. Nothing gets resolved so that all sides achieve mutual satisfaction, and therefore grudges simmer, awaiting sudden eruptions and the pot boils over. But the fact that is critical is the first one. You can’t help the cause of peace unless you are peaceful in yourself. This means several things on the personal level: You sympathize with all suffering, no matter which side you take in a conflict. You don't see violence as the solution. You can detach yourself from judgment and blame. You don't give in to us-versus-them thinking.
“Online purchase scams were in the top three riskiest scams for the third year in a row," says Trumpower. "When COVID hit, then it became very clear that this was becoming even riskier because people were increasing their online presence.” Each year, her team puts together a report that identifies the riskiest scams for consumers and this year’s report shows buying online continues to be one of the biggest offenders.
Experts started predicting a decline in the number of harvested boxes of oranges back in August. Official end-of-the-year numbers from the U.S. Department of Agriculture published in December confirm their fears: the orange production for the entire country was down 11.8% in 2020. In California, the harvest was down 5.3%. In Texas, it went up 12.3%, but the state only produced 64,000 tons compared to California's 2,020,000. In Florida, orange production was down 16.8%, and it continues to worry experts.

The law in question requires that vegan meat products display the plant-based disclaimer on their packaging as largely and prominently as the brand's name. Upton's Naturals products already feature the word "vegan" on the front of all packaging. But Judge Stephen Friot didn't seem to find the labeling sufficient and he refused to block the law by claiming the labeling of plant-based products is still confusing to the average customer.
When you're feeling heightened levels of stress, your body responds by releasing the stress hormones cortisol, adrenaline, and norepinephrine into your bloodstream. Your heart starts racing, pumping more blood, and your metabolism actually kicks into high gear. This is all very normal if it occurs sporadically.

Antidepressants: Many people who take these medications complain of weight gain, and Seltzer says the mechanism isn't completely understood, but some experts have suggested there may be a change in metabolism that causes the body to burn calories at a slower rate. Beta blockers: Used for heart conditions, these medications may also contribute to a change in metabolism, according to Seltzer. Some people on beta blockers also experience fatigue more easily, which could lead to less activity and, subsequently, weight gain.

Protein helps you burn fat in three ways. First, it's the building block of muscle, and muscle burns fat. Second, the very act of eating protein actually burns calories just by digesting the protein itself. And third, protein keeps you fuller longer because that digestive process means your body feels satiated.
The recall notice advises consumers to stop using the Crock-Pot in pressure cooker mode to reduce the risk of an injury. Slow cooking and sautéing are fine and shouldn't pose any risks. "Consumers should contact Crock-Pot immediately to obtain a free replacement lid," the CPSC's recall announcement says. "Consumers who continue using the multi-cooker in pressure cooker mode while waiting for the replacement lid should be certain the lid is securely turned to the fully locked position by aligning the arrow on the lid with the lock symbol on the base."
The pandemic response has been somewhat confusing, since the CDC and WHO agreed too late that people should wear masks to help prevent transmission of the deadly virus. When infected, patients see a wide variety of symptoms, and there are multiple reports that they can linger for months, known as Post-COVID Syndrome. So, it is different than the flu and the common cold. The fall and winter season has also brought seasonal influenza—and a major COVID surge. You don't want to be sharing your air with anyone else but those in your household.
