Overdoses happen en-US when a person has taken more opiates (or en-US opioids) than their body can handle. They en-US can happen absolutely anywhere and its en-US really important for everyone to know the en-US symptoms of an overdose because then en-US the appropriate actions can be taken to en-US save a persons life.en-US For more information on the opiate epien-US -en-US demic, visit en-US If you en-US are in need of areferral to a treatment en-US center, call (877) 841-5509.en-USAnything can be proven by en-US looking at parts, not the wholeen-USNo such thing as climate change? en-US Willful ignorance is not a particularly en-US admirable quality. en-US The flat earthers, the climate change en-US deniers, the sea level-rise deniers, the en-US anti-vaxxers, the early earthers and evoluen-US -en-US tion deniers are living in their own little en-US bubble. en-US They are poster children for the Dunen-US-en-US ning-Kruger Effect. en-US It is useless trying to reason with them en-US for they will just cherry-pick facts to reinen-US -en-US force what Fox News and the Fever en-US Swamp has told them. en-US Anything can be proven by looking at en-US the parts not the whole.

en-US 7 en-USof having a senior go in, Mrs. Helin said. en-US We saw the need for flexible care. We en-US could be around most of the time, but en-US there were times when we needed a little en-US bit of help here and there, and there was en-US nothing out there to do that.en-US I happened to see an ad for the franen-US-en-US chise and thought, I wish I thought of en-US that, she continued. I checked into it en-US and fell in love with it so much so that I en-US thought its too good to be true. So, I gave en-US it to mom because she had been in insuren-US -en-US ance for 25 years as a businesswoman, so I en-US had her dot the Is and cross the Ts and en-US she fell in love with it too.en-US Although she plans to go into a paren-US -en-US tial-retirement, Mrs. Barton said she still en-US plans to co-own the business and give her en-US daughter advice whether she wants it or en-US not.en-US Mrs. Barton moved down to Melbourne en-US Beach 20 years ago. Previous to her work en-US as a concierge at the Windsor Club in en-US Vero Beach, Mrs. Barton had retired from en-US a career in Gannon Associates, Inc., an en-US insurance agency in which she rose to en-US become a licensed agent and retired as the en-US companys vice president.en-US During her time at Gannon Associates, en-US Mrs. Barton went back to school in order en-US to earn a CPCU certificate.en-US I loved working in that field, Mrs. en-US Barton said. I worked at an interesting en-US time because when I started in insurance, en-US there were no insurance ladies it was en-US always your insurance man. So when I en-US started, I was basically told that I would en-US not be a success because I was a woman. en-US So I had a lot of hurdles to cross to prove en-US that I could do the job.en-US But even before she was making victoen-US -en-US ries by paving a way in the mans world en-US that was insurance, according to Mrs. en-US Barton, she started out on Wall Street as a en-US summer clerk at the age of 16. At the end en-US of her five years working there, she was a en-US secretary to a senior partner of the comen-US -en-US pany.en-US Back at that time, you could never go en-US any further than that, Mrs. Barton said.en-US During her time in high school, there en-US were limited occupations for women to en-US choose after finishing school, such as secen-US -en-US retarial school, nursing, state teachers colen-US-en-US lege or perhaps could work in the insuren-US -en-US ance and stock market.en-US I think she is fearless in a very positive en-US way, and she always brings people up with en-US her, Mrs. Helin said about her mom. She en-US won Woman of Excellence a couple of en-US years ago and that truly embodied her en-US because she has always reached out and en-US helped all of the women around her. She en-US didnt let the male-dominated world stop en-US her.en-US For more information, visit en-US seniorshelpen-US -en-US ingseniors.comen-US. Michael S.

en-US 8 en-USTheyre going to school without the en-US most basic of supplies and you need en-US those things in order to succeed in en-US school, and then ultimately break that en-US cycle of poverty.en-US How well can you expect a child to en-US do on a test or essay if they dont even en-US have a pencil? Ms. Schreiber continen-US -en-US ued. We do this event every year en-US because we know these kids need these en-US supplies.en-US Sponsors have ranged from $1,000 to en-US $10,000 for the financial campaign, and en-US a variety of businesses and organizaen-US-en-US tions in the community have shown en-US support by collecting school supplies to en-US donate to the Supply Zone, Ms. Schen-US-en-US reiber said.en-US The Supply Zone also runs a public en-US supply drive during the month of July, en-US in which the organization partners with en-US the radio station WLTQ-FM Lite Rock en-US 99.3, as well as local businesses to seren-US -en-US vice public supply drive sites throughen-US -en-US out the county.en-US Were looking for the basics, Ms. en-US Schreiber said in regard to the school en-US supply drive. Things like pencils, en-US paper, and backpacks . anything you en-US might need to start the school year off en-US right.en-US Some 2,000 backpacks will be availen-US -en-US able for students during the giveaway en-US event, and can include comprehensive en-US items such as No. 2 pencils, colored en-US pencils, markers, crayons, pens, highen-US-en-US lighters, spiral notebooks, composition en-US notebooks and glue.en-US Organizers currently are looking into en-US adding free haircuts and dental inspecen-US -en-US tions for students as part of the event, en-US which have been a feature of previous en-US giveaway events.en-US At the end of April, the Brevard en-US Schools Foundation received a generous en-US donation of $100,001 by the Palaniyandi en-US family in honor of Pillai Palaniyandi, en-US the family patriarch, who celebrated his en-US 103rd birthday.en-US Mr. Palaniyandi has been involved en-US with the education system since he en-US started his career as a primary school en-US teacher. He retired as a high school en-US principal and wrote textbooks that were en-US used to teach third grade through 10th en-US grade in India.en-US The funds went to supporting the en-US Supply Zone for Teachers, which is a en-US service of the Brevard Schools Foundaen-US-en-US tion.en-US It was such a surprise, it was so en-US amazing, Ms. Schreiber said. Ive en-US never received such a generous gift en-US before in my life! So Im very excited en-US with what were going to be able to do en-US with those funds.en-US She added that the Supply Zone for en-US Teachers will create an endowment so en-US the donation can help support the orgaen-US -en-US nization for many years to come.en-US The donor who [presented] the en-US funds, Ambika Ravindran (who is Mr. en-US Palaniyandis daughter-in-law), has also en-US been doing a little campaigning on the en-US side, Ms. Schreiber said. She has been en-US calling her friends and associates, and en-US convincing them to donate funds so we en-US can create feminine hygiene kits for en-US homeless girls in Brevard Public en-US Schools.en-US Families eligible to register for the en-US event must call (321) 633-1000, Ext. 756 en-US from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through en-US Thursday in order to participate.en-US Organizers insist that callers must en-US speak with a Brevard Schools Foundaen-US -en-US tion representative in order to register en-US and receive a time-slot.

There are certain cloud en-USissues to be wary ofen-USOen-USnce upon a time there was this guy en-US who was so enamored with cloud en-US computing that he stuck all of his en-US digital eggs in one basket and in the blink of en-US an eye lost it all. The end. en-US Alright, OK, Im sure there are enough of en-US you reading this wondering what in the en-US world Im going on about this week so I en-US suppose I ought to take a few words to en-US explain. You see I recently read an article en-US online (an open letter to Google actually) en-US written by a very distraught fellow who en-US wanted Google to know just how badly they en-US messed up when they locked him out of all en-US of his data. en-US The poor guy goes on to explain that he en-US spent months switching all of his email over en-US to gmail, all of his photos over to Googles en-US photo service (Picasa), all of his docs to en-US Google Docs, etc. After painstakingly en-US moving all of his data to Googles servers en-US (wherever the hell they are) he woke up one en-US day to find out his account had been closed en-US due to a terms of service violation which en-US he swears up and down he didnt commit. en-US The bottom line is he spent a considerable en-US amount of time moving his entire digital en-US inventory up to Googles cloud, didnt make en-US any provisions to back any of it up and then en-US (just as Murphys law demands) found en-US himself completely locked out. en-US Now, this column isnt about whether en-US Google had a right to lock him out of his en-US account or not nor is it some type of cry out en-US to the powers that be to change the way our en-US data is safeguarded when we hand it over to en-US the cloud. Its more of a cautionary tale to en-US remind us of that which we already know en-US back up everything! Even when entrusting en-US your data to the cloud, back it to a local drive en-US as well! To not do so is just asking for it. en-US OK, lets look at this a little closer shall we? en-US First the decision to use a cloud service en-US may be a decision that many are not even en-US aware that they are making. Let me try to en-US clarify a couple things, take email for en-US example. If you are accessing your email en-US through your web browser by going to www.en-US,, en-US or any of the other email services that offer en-US web based mail service then guess what? en-US Your email is being stored and managed in en-US the cloud and if you should find yourself in en-US violation of the terms of service you too en-US could find yourself locked out. (Just how en-US well did you read those terms when you en-US signed up? You know, the terms you have to en-US click the Accept button for in order to set en-US up your account?) en-US Most email services allow the downloaden-US -en-US ing of email to a local email client which is en-US present on each and every machine out en-US there Windows, Mac or Linux. You can en-US set up your computers email program en-US (Windows Live Mail, Outlook, Outlook en-US Express for those machines still running en-US Windows XP, Mail on Macs) by configuren-US -en-US ing the POP or IMAP settings. Look it en-US up in your email services help settings and if en-US your email service doesnt provide for it then en-US you may want to consider an alternative. en-US Next lets look at the folly of uploading all en-US of your digital pictures to a service like en-US Googles Picasa Web Albums and then deleten-US -en-US ing the local copies after you upload all of en-US your pictures. Why on earth would anyone en-US do that? Well Sean, we dont want all these en-US duplicates now do we? Well, actually, you en-US do. en-US Sure, uploading all of your photos to a en-US web based service is great but for Gods en-US sakes, dont get rid of the originals! Did you en-US know that you can get 8 gigabyte thumb en-US drives from just about any drugstore en-US nowadays for about 10 bucks! Do you know en-US how many duplicate photos you can store en-US on 8 gigs? Then if anything happens to your en-US web albums you luckily will have all of en-US those pesky duplicates to fall back on. en-US The list goes on Google Docs Sure en-US save all of your Docs to cloud storage but en-US how about synchronizing them with a local en-US folder on your own machine, you know, just en-US in case Google goes belly up it will be nice to en-US have a backup. en-US As the concept of cloud computing en-US becomes all encompassing its important to en-US remember that its your data. Dont just en-US assume that they will protect it for you. en-US Sean McCarthy fixes computers. He can be en-US reached at 888-752-9049 or en-US help@Compuen-US -en-US teThisOnline.comen-US.

What you dont know en-US about some of these common plants can en-US be deadly. Some parts of the ornamental en-US plants or flowers in your yard may en-US contain deadly poison. The most en-US susceptible to being harmed by these en-US plants are children and pets. en-US One of the most toxic and common en-US poisonous plants is the Oleander. The en-US Oleander plant contains a deadly heart en-US stimulant that resembles the prescription en-US drug digitalis. If a child eats a single leaf en-US or two from this plant it could be deadly. en-US There have been several instances where en-US people have died from eating meats that en-US were roasted from a wood fire that en-US contained Oleander twigs or branches. en-US Dieffenbachia, which is a common en-US tropical that many of us have in our en-US homes, is also a highly toxic plant. All en-US parts of this plant are poisonous. If eaten, en-US the plant can cause intense burning and en-US irritation of your mouth. The plant can en-US be deadly if enough swelling occurs to en-US block your airway. You should always en-US wash your hands after handling this or en-US any of the listed poisonous plants.en-US Another surprising plant is the Azalea. en-US All parts of the Azalea plant can be toxic en-US if ingested. The symptoms include en-US nausea and vomiting along with en-US difficulty in breathing and possibly en-US coma. The end result can be fatal. Even en-US the berries of Jasmine plants can be toxic. en-US They can cause digestive problems along en-US with nervous system disorders. en-US The foliage from oak trees can be toxic en-US but the effects are gradual. If foliage is en-US ingested, it can slowly affect your en-US kidneys. You need to ingest a substantial en-US amount for severe poisoning to occur. en-US Lantana, which is commonly used by en-US many as a colorful ground cover, is en-US another specimen that is toxic if ingested. en-US Acute poisoning can cause hemorrhagic en-US diarrhea and rapid heart rate.en-US Although this list includes some of the en-US most common plant varieties, there are en-US many more that could be added to this en-US list including Milkweed, Narcissus, en-US Daffodil, poison Oak, Purslane and Snow GARDEN NOOK en-USJOE ZELENAK en-GBSeeen-GB en-GB PLANTSen-GB, page 15

Harbor City Blvd., Melbourne. A en-US love donation of $20 is suggested.en-US Her 90-minute concert will include en-US music and stories that are spirit-based en-US and non-denominational. She doesnt en-US preach or talk politics, she said, but rathen-US -en-US er delivers an inspirational message of en-US inner peace.en-US I have heard time and again people en-US say they made better choices in their lives en-US after seeing one of my concerts, Ms. St. en-US King said, describing herself as an inner en-US peace troubadour. People have said Im en-US like Garrison Keillor, Deepak Chopra en-US and Tracy Chapman all rolled into one. en-US In January, Ms. St. King won the 2018 en-US South Florida Folk Festival Songwriters en-US Competition. About half of the songs she en-US performs are those she wrote herself and en-US the other half are songs that have been en-US given to her.en-US Anything I perform has to resonate en-US with my work, she said. It has to do en-US with whats on the inside, not the outen-US -en-US side.en-US Her mission as a voice for peace en-US started on Sept. 11, 2001, when she had en-US the profound experience of being one of en-US the people running from the World en-US Trade Center towers.en-US Six months later I discovered cancer en-US in my throat, Ms. St. King said. I took en-US off and went to a monastery in New Zeaen-US -en-US land called Shamballa. When I came en-US back to the U.S., we were going to war.en-US She began touring the United States en-US after that and said she is healthy as far en-US as the cancer goes. en-US On Feb. 15 of this year, Ms. St. King en-US counseled students and sang songs of en-US peace at a Parkland vigil after the shooten-US -en-US ing at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High en-US School.en-US The following week she sang for more en-US than 1,000 people during a vigil for gun en-US control in Delray Beach. Most recently, en-US she sang in Boca Raton for the Together en-US We Remember worldwide movement to en-US bring awareness to genocide.en-US My work has been endorsed by the en-US United Nations, the M.K. Gandhi Instien-US-en-US tute for Nonviolence and the National en-US Peace Academy, Ms. St. King said. I en-US have sung in such diverse venues as the en-US Parliament of the Worlds Religions and en-US San Quentin Prison.en-US In fact, she has a renewed interest in en-US sharing inspiring music and stories with en-US those who are incarcerated. en-US Prison work is probably my most en-US important work right now, Ms. St. King en-US said, noting that she is always on the en-US lookout for prison ministry programs en-US with which to partner.en-US Ms. St. King recently moved from New en-US York to Delray Beach.

Bear in mind that just en-US because some of your favorite plants can be en-US toxic if ingested, common sense and en-US keeping these plants out of the reach of en-US small children and pets can totally avoid en-US tragedy. en-US We have talked a lot about common and en-US seemingly innocent plants that can be toxic en-US but here is one plant that many people think en-US is deadly poisonous but in reality, it is harmen-US -en-US less. The plant I am referring to is the en-US Poinsettia. The Poinsettia plant is one of the en-US most widely produced plants in the country. en-US During the holidays, almost every houseen-US -en-US hold has at least one Poinsettia adorning en-US their dcor. Fear not, as todays commercialen-US -en-US ly distributed varieties are not poisonous. en-US There are some people, however, that en-US may get a mild allergic reaction to the milky en-US sap if it comes in contact with their skin. en-US The affected areas can be washed with soap en-US and water to remove the sap if irritation en-US develops. Poinsettia plants are not a serious en-US risk for animals although it is always best to en-US keep any plant out of the reach of pets if en-US they like to chew plants.en-US Finally, there are also several common en-US houseplants that can be toxic to animals en-US and children. Probably the most common is en-US the Philodendron. The toxic part is the en-US leaves. If ingested, it can cause burning of en-US the lips and mouth and can also cause en-US contact dermatitis if the plant juice contacts en-US the skin. Similar symptoms can occur with en-US Pothos, Golden Pothos and Devils Ivy. en-US That all for this week and I hope you en-US found the content informative and interesten-US -en-US ing.
