After reading the article on Friday night, I decidedto visit the store Saturdaymorning. I found it to be justlike the article informed. I wasnot disappointed. The new development in SanIgnacio is indeed attracting a newand elevated caliber of stores inour community Like the article said, I too felt like I was in aninternational store when I entered. Apart from good prices, I also found that there were amplestaff in the store to attend tocustomers. A new era in the way we shop, indeed dawningin our community I encourage everyone to visit Dibary Storeon Burns A venue in San Ignacio and experience the difference.Thank you for the article,please continue promotingthose who are contributingto the transformation of ourcommunity Carmen Lopez "Dear brothers and sisters,when troubles of any kind comeyour way consider it an opportunity for great joy ." James 1:2 (NL T) What began as a simple plan torenovate a bathroom in dire needof updating, quickly morphed ourentire house into a disaster zone. Due to unanticipated electricaland plumbing issues, the messextended beyond the bathroom,affecting multiple rooms in thehouse. Due to bad advice anddisappointing work, the projectdragged on for months. I could write my name in thelayer of sheetrock dust on all thefurniture, despite how manybottles of furniture polish I used.Then our old air conditioning unit Don't Cry Over Spilled Shampoo BY : T racie Miles kicked the bucket, and ourchecking account was about to dothe same. But it was a bottle ofspilled shampoo in the onebathroom my family of five hadbeen sharing that pushed me overthe edge. The day after splurging on anoversized bottle of moisturizingshampoo, I found it on the floorof the bathroom with half thecontents spilled into a huge gooeypuddle. I cleaned it up in silentaggravation. But the followingday when I found it on the flooragain, in yet another big puddle,tears began to spill as easily asthat shampoo had from the bottle. Later that day I whined to a friend about my frustratingcircumstances. She gentlysuggested I read James 1:2. I confess, I wasn't in the mood tolook up a Bible verse. Butthankfully I did, and reading thisverse prompted me to pause,think and refocus. James 1:2 says, "Dear brothers and sisters, whentroubles of any kind come yourway consider it an opportunity for great joy ." I thought about how blessed wewere to have lived in our homefor 17 years, where we've raisedall our children. I thought aboutthe sweet memories our homeheld, despite its condition. Ithought about the lessonswe were learning as a familyabout tolerance, closeness,consideration and perseverance.I thought about the blessing ofbeing able to afford therenovation. As I focused on my blessings, all the small annoyancessuddenly seemed much lessimportant. I had countlessreasons to be thankful, but hadallowed daily frustrations anddisappointments to steal my joy In fact, my problems werenothing compared to the peopleJames was addressing in today'skey verse. James wrote to Christians who were experiencing severepersecution, facing various trialsand sufferings. They endureddifficult adversities andinjustices, and were juggling anarray of emotions includingfear mourning, confusion and loneliness. James encouraged them topause and refocus on their faith,even when life was hard. He knewthat such times presented theopportunity to persevere andpractice finding joy in Christ,despite their circumstances. These daily problems can causeus to lose focus on things thatreally matter and fill our hearts with fear sorrow frustrations, hopelessness and anger — thingsthat steal our joy in Christ. Sometimes we allow trivialthings to steal our joy such as a bottle of spilled shampoo. At other times we may reach abreaking point for much moreserious reasons. But whether ourproblems are big or small, James1:2 reminds us to purposely andintentionally choose joy inChrist, even in the midst of ourtroubles. Joy comes from choice, notproblem-free circumstances, andJames wanted us all to know that.

Sunday, July 27, 2014 STAR Tels: 626-8822 & 804-4900 Page 7 Gingivitis ("inflammation of the gum tissue") is a non-destructive periodontal disease T he etiology or cause, of plaque-induced gingivitis isbacterial plaque, which acts toinitiate the body's hostresponse. This, in turn, can leadto destruction of the gingivaltissues, which may progress todestruction of the periodontalattachment apparatus. The plaqueaccumulates in the small gapsbetween teeth, in the gingivalgrooves and in areas known asplaque traps: locations that serveto accumulate and maintainplaque. Examples of plaque trapsinclude bulky and overhangingrestorative margins, claps ofremovable partial dentures andcalculus (tartar) that forms on teeth. Although these accumulations may be tiny the bacteria in them producechemicals, such as degrativeenzymes, and toxins, such aslipopolysaccharide (LPS, otherwise known asendotoxin) or lipoteichoic acid (L T A) that promote an inflammatory response in thegum tissue. This inflammationcan cause an enlargement of thegingiva and subsequentformation. Early plaque in healthconsists of a relatively simplebacterial community dominatedby Gram-positive cocci and rods.As plaque matures, and gingivitisdevelops, the communitiesbecome increasingly complexwith higher proportions ofGram-negative rods, fusiforms,filaments, spirilla andspirochetes. Later experimentalgingivitis studies, using culture,provided more informationregarding the specific bacterialspecies present in plaque. T axa associated with gingivitisincluded Fusobacteriumnucleatum subsp. polymorphum,Lachnospiraceae [G-2] sp. HOT100, Lautropia sp. HOT A94, and Prevotella oulorum, whilstRothia dentocariosa was associated with periodontal health.Further study of these taxa iswarranted and may lead to newtherapeutic approaches toprevent periodontal disease. Gingivitis can be preventedthrough regular oral hygiene thatincludes daily brushing and Gingivitis flossing. Hydrogen peroxide,saline, alcohol or chlorhexidinemouth washes may also beemployed. In a recent clinicalstudy the beneficial ef fect of hydrogen peroxide on gingivitis has been highlighted. Rigorousplaque control programs alongwith periodontal scaling andcurettage also have proved to behelpful, although according to theAmerican Dental Association, periodontal scaling and rootplaning are considered as atreatment to periodontal disease,not as a preventive treatmentfor periodontal disease. In a1997 review of effectivenessdata the U.S. Food and DrugAdministration (FDA) found clear evidence which showed thattoothpaste containing triclosanwas effective in preventinggingivitis. In many countries, such as theUnited States, mouthwashescontaining chlorhexidine areavailable only by prescription. Researchers analyzedgovernment data on calcium consumption and periodontaldisease indicators in nearly13,000 U.S. adults. They foundthat men and women who hadcalcium intakes of fewer than500 milligrams, or about half therecommended dietary allowance,were almost twice as likely tohave gum disease, as measured bythe loss of attachment of thegums from the teeth. Theassociation was particularly evi-dent for people in their 20s and30s. Preventing gum disease mayalso benefit a healthy heart.According to physicians with TheInstitute for Good Medicine atthe Pennsylvania MedicalSociety good oral health can reduce risk of cardiac events.Poor oral health can lead toinfections that can travel withinthe bloodstream.

Rugby Sevens has seensignificant growth in popularity as rugby spread around the worldand coaches realized thatsevens offered an opportunity tointroduce the sport to non-players and continue playerdevelopment amongst traditionalplayers, in a more focusedmanner as it allows for better individual player developmentacross the range of physical andcognitive skills before they moveinto the 15-man team game. Continue T o P ag e 1 4 Players can also remain in thesevens game for the entirety ofthe career The rise in popularity of sevensrugby is partly due to its fastpaced physicality but also because events are conducted ina festival atmosphere; many havea theme, like monsters or cartooncharacters, and encouragespectators to turn up in costumes.This has resulted in an increasein the number of competitionsaround the world.
