“Glee” star Naya Rivera has filed for divorce from husband Ryan Dorsey after just two years of marriage. The 29 year old singer actress is seeking primary custody of their one year old son, Josey, with visitation rights for the 33 year old “Pitch” actor. Rivera revealed in her book “Sorry Not Sorry” that she dated Dorsey before Big Sean and got an abortion after they split in 2010. When she broke up with Big Sean after the rapper allegedly cheated with Ariana Grande, she reconciled with Dorsey and then tied the knot after several months of dating.

Everybody’s going to be kung fu fighting on the big screen again in the upcoming “Mortal Kombat” reboot. Simon McQuoid, best known for directing commercials for PlayStation, Halo and Beats by Dre, is in talks to direct a new movie based on the video game. A 1995 film, following Liu Kang and Johnny Cage in a tournament for the fate of the world, grossed $70 million but its sequel “Mortal Kombat: Annihilation” did not, ahem, annihilate the box office. No word on plot or casting for the new project.

And Jessica Simpson is returning to music, whether you like it or not. The singer reality star teased her comeback on Instagram with a throwback video to her performance of “I Wanna Love You Forever” at the 2001 American Music Awards. “Bring it 2017,” she added, suggesting her first new album since 2010’s “Happy Christmas,” will come out next year. ET reports she also “absolutely” plans to tour.

Kristen Graham covers the Philadelphia School District. A native Philadelphian and a product of the school system and Temple University she has written about everything from crime and county government to education since joining the Inquirer in 2000.

Kristen is a Pulitzer Prize winner, part of a team whose “Assault on Learning” series about violence in the Philadelphia schools won the 2012 prize for public service for the Inquirer. Henry School and their chaperones, were injured in the crash Monday. From his room at Children Hospital of Philadelphia, Elijah told his story Tuesday, pausing occasionally to wince in pain from the concussion, cuts, and severed tendons and nerves he had sustained in his hands.

The boy, who loves anime and music and can wait for his eighth grade graduation, was excited about the class trip to Washington. He been talking about it for weeks, and on Monday morning, he got up at his Mount Airy home earlier than his father ever remembered him rising.

was happy, laughing, Elijah said.

And then, the crash. After the bus overturned, Elijah was thrown from his seat. His instinct was to grip his seat, but his hands slipped off. He hit his head and glass sheared his hands and face, but his fall kept a classmate from being more seriously injured, Elijah said.

He looked at his bloody hands. He tried to find his glasses. He tried to hold his phone.

wanted to call my mom and dad, but my phone screen was cracked, and I was bleeding too much, said Elijah.

He dropped his phone. In just a few minutes, someone came to rescue him a man from the three busloads of police officers and recruits that coincidentally were traveling behind the Henry bus. They carried him out of the wreck to an ambulance. Someone wrapped his head and hands. Everything hurt, he said.

Philadelphia Police Officer Thomas Gill, a 28 year veteran of the department, was on one of the buses. At first, he thought the flipped vehicle was a truck. Then he saw the bodies scattered on the highway. He and nearly everyone else was off their bus in a flash.

Gill and a handful of others climbed a steep and overgrown embankment searching for people who might have been ejected. None hesitated to help.

Clara Mae Daniels approached Elijah. Daniels is the widow of William L. Daniels, a Philadelphia police officer killed in the line of duty in 1975, and the mother of Lee Daniels, creator of the TV show Empire. She raised five children alone after her husband was killed.

She was also on one of the police buses. The great grandmother instinct was to head straight for those children, many sobbing and shaking yards from the ruined bus.

There were first aid kits on the police buses, and Daniels and others ripped them open, using bandages and blankets where they could. She pressed cloths to Elijah forehead, trying to stanch the blood until medics arrived.

Some people had not even a scratch on them. Others, like Elijah, who had sat on the left side of the bus, were much worse off.

Daniels called Elijah mom.

Allen steadied when he heard his son voice, he said.

Elijah was treated at a Maryland hospital first, then airlifted to Children’s Hospital his first helicopter ride, he said.

On Tuesday, Elijah was in pain, his hands and arms wrapped in thick layers of gauze almost up to his elbows. He is scheduled to have surgery on his right hand Wednesday.

just feel better when we get him home, said Moton. She and Allen slept at the hospital with their son, staying up all night to help him get settled. Elijah had nightmares about falling off a cliff, they said.

They held his arms when he got stitches for the deep gash on his face, playing calming music to soothe him.

They hope for the best for Brittany Jacobs, the special education teacher on the bus who was critically injured, and for the other four children still hospitalized. They have questions about the car that struck the Henry bus: Why was it going so fast?

beats audio headphones cheap ‘I don’t see a reflection of that at all’ Local group reacts to decline in Indiana’s homeless numbers

“Today I had a call from a woman who will be evicted if she can’t come up with her rent money,” said Exec. Director Susie Thompson.

That’s just one of the stories heard every day by Thompson. While Reach mainly focuses on disabilities, cases of homelessness are also very common for the agency.

“We are seeing such a need and a contiunous need,” she said, “I had to come and address the fire alarm here at the agency. There was a woman on the porch of one of our properties with all of her belongings around her, and because she had a dog she couldn’t go to any of the shelters. So she chose to be absolutely on the street instead of putting her pet at risk. When you see those kinds of things, you recognize that probably people are homeless, but those numbers are not being captured.”

Thompson says referrals at Reach continue to increase. In addition, one of their veterans programs has reached a high of 47 cases for homeless or high risk veterans, the highest they’ve had since the program’s establishment. Department of Housing and Urban Development, homelessness is down in Indiana.

In their study, Indiana communities reported that 5,438 people experienced homelessness on a single night in 2017. That’s a 6.2 percent decrease since 2016.

The study also reports that chronic, or long term, homelessness decreased by 8.8 percent since last year. The homeless veteran population also declined by 7.2 percent.

We asked Thompson about her thoughts on the homelessness decline in Indiana.

“Well it’s new to me,” she said.

“I don’t see a reflection of that at all,” said Martina Butler Hull, Veteran Services Coordinator at Reach.

Both Thompson and Butler Hull say it’s difficult to get an accurate homeless count number.

“One of the other things that we face is that they do the homeless count every year in January,” Thompson said, “People that can be in housing, shelter or with friends in the cold winter, are going to choose to do that. So I just think there’s a whole lot of things going around that make those numbers unrealistic from our point of view.”

“When anybody whose got a place to go, anybody who can pay a couple of dollars and rent a couch for a night, or be taken in by their family around Christmas time and hang out for those coldest parts of winter,” Butler Hull said, “I think you’re missing a lot of people during that time.”

When it comes to understanding homelessness, Thompson says it goes beyond just living on the streets and it can happen to anyone at any time.

“They don’t have an address, they’ve had to give up all of their security and they are living from place to place. In my definition, that is homeless,” Thompson said, “So many people that we work with have a very limited or temporary job, or their income is so limited that one tragedy, one flat tire, one issue and they would be homeless as well.”

Butler Hull says homelessness continues to be a growing problem and she can tell by the new faces in clients.

“It’s almost more difficult when you meet a new person for the first time to realize that it’s still an ongoing problem,” she said, “I could introduce you to people that have stayed in our shelters, since day one we’ve been full.”

While the number of cases continues to go up, money and resources remain tight and competitive. However, Thompson says it’s not enough to stop them and other agencies from trying to put an end to the problem.

“I don’t believe that we’re alone here, I believe that all the agencies are facing these kinds of struggles,” Thompson said, “and we know that funds are limited, and we’re in a community where we’re all competing for the same dollars to help people. It’s just a continuous cycle, and I’m not sure where that ends or how it ends, but we’re going to keep fighting the fight.”

Have you recognized Justin Guarini in Diet Dr. Pepper’s new commercials? The “American Idol” season 1 runner up ditches the big afro and dons a maroon wig as he becomes “Lil’ Sweet,” a tiny heavy metal rocker who delivers “zero calorie sweet treats.” In one ad he surprises a children’s birthday party, and in another he power slides while singing in an office breakroom. Guarini, whom Kelly Clarkson recently admitted briefly dating during their “From Justin to Kelly” days, last made headlines in 2013 when he said sometimes skips meals to feed his kids, but becoming the spokesperson for the soft drink will likely boost his income.

Apple is taking on Spotify with a new paid music streaming service, thanks to its $3 billion purchase of Beats Music and its Beats by Dre headphones. Beats chief creative officer Trent Reznor, best known as the frontman for Nine Inch Nails, is working on rebuilding the app with Beats co founder Jimmy Iovine. Beats originally cost $10 a month, but Apple may attempt to use its iTunes influence to reduce it to $8 $2 less than Spotify. No release date yet, but look for it on the next major iOS update.

If that sounds like someone rooting for the underdog, you’re right up to a point. But some of Savidge’s other views about this film will come as a surprise.

For one, Savidge said the movie has far more scenes depicting police brutality than he had intended. manager Jerry Heller, portrayed by Paul Giamatti as a Machiavellian industry type.

“I’m very happy with the movie and the way it’s rendered,” Savidge hastened to say, “but what happens with biopics is that this is the entertainment business the studio and the producers are trying to make the most commercially viable product they can.”

Savidge, 57, comes from a prominent family of Seattle car dealers he is technically S. Leigh Savidge III who have been here since the 1920s. The third generation Seattleite grew up in Magnolia, “a proud product of the public school system in the era of busing,” he said, until his senior year, which he spent at the prestigious Lakeside School. After graduating, he got a communications degree at Boston University, then left for Los Angeles.

There, in 1986, he founded Xenon Pictures, a production and licensing company that started out distributing ’70s “blaxploitation” movies by genre pioneers like Melvin Van Peebles and Rudy Ray Moore.

“I watched as the hip hop music movement directly affected opportunities for black entertainers,” said Savidge. broke which made stars out of Dr. Dre, Ice Cube and Eazy E Savidge immersed himself in hip hop, first writing and producing the solid, informative 2001 documentary “Welcome to Death Row,” about Death Row Records, founded by Dr. (Savidge’s book, also titled “Welcome to Death Row,” serves as a fine companion to the movie.)

“Straight Outta Compton,” which followed, started life as a story about Eazy E (who died in 1995), his label, Ruthless Records, and Heller, his manager.

“It was primarily a story principally about Eazy E and his relationship with Jerry Heller, with Ice Cube and Dr. Dre and the other guys as supporting characters,” said Savidge.

But once Dre and Ice Cube came on as producers, Savidge explained, the film changed. Sequences were added about Ice Cube’s 1994 movie, “Friday” and the careers of Dre assisted rappers Eminem and 50 Cent; even CNN news footage about Dre selling his Beats headphone company to Apple for $3 billion in 2014.

But more important for Savidge, the final cut “dialed up the law enforcement stuff (with) much more of an emphasis on the riots and things. My own personal view is that obviously these are important issues, but they’re very nuanced, too.”

Savidge’s views about police brutality may be colored by his friendship with former Seattle police Officer Ernest Hall, who served for over three decades on the force before being fired in August for lying about a misplaced firearm.

“Ernie is my very good friend,” said Savidge. “I’ve been in his squad car many times. and I know what he is as a hero in the Seattle area. We don’t often get the stories of heroism that come out of the law enforcement community that gets lost in the noise of what happens in Ferguson, and with Eric Garner and in Charleston. I don’t think you can throw all this stuff in a Cuisinart and say that it’s all the same [Police brutality] definitely influenced this music, but the larger sociopolitical issue is the limited opportunities for people in the ‘hood to transition into a higher economic status. That’s a key undercurrent of this story.”

Savidge said his version of the film was also more sympathetic to Heller, who took 20 percent of Eazy E’s income.

“If [Heller] is guilty of anything, it’s perhaps not adjusting a business deal that Eazy E agreed to,” said Savidge, who interviewed Heller extensively. “You have to ask yourself, would David Geffen have adjusted that deal? Would Puffy [Sean Combs] have adjusted that deal? Would Russell Simmons have adjusted that deal? It was 20 off the top that would have been probably OK if the group hadn’t become so successful.”

Indeed. Money changes everything.

As it flows by the millions into “Straight Outta Compton,” Savidge cautions that while the film is based on a true story, it is still a Hollywood film.

beats headphone cables What Year Were Headphones Invented

Everyone Uses Headphones

Headphones are an essential accessory and there is no doubt they have saved many an argument over the years. Thanks to headphones you can listen to audio without having to disturb anyone else. Nowadays we use all kinds of headphones from small earplugs with wireless Bluetooth technology to listen to music in the street, to big leather padded cans for listening to music at home. Also, Gaming headsets are increasingly popular as many headsets today come equipped with a microphone, thus allowing users to talk with other gamers, friends and relatives.

Headphones can give the user a better quality of sound, there is no interruption between the sound and the ear, nowhere for it to dissipate and external sound is blocked out, especially if you invest in a high quality pair of headphones which are abundantly available today. In fact if you go back to the early 20th century before amplifiers were invented, sensitive headphones were the only way to listen to audio signals.

What year were the first headphones invented?

Strictly speaking the very first headphones date back to the early adoption of the telephone and by 1919 radio headphones like the set pictured here were being manufactured. These were for use by professionals rather than the public. There is an argument over who first had the idea to shrink down loudspeakers and attach them to our heads but the very earliest surviving examples date back to around 1910. These were far from the headphones we use today with very poor sound quality and no padding for comfort. They were used by radio operators and telephone exchanges.

The First Dynamic Headphones

If you ask “When were the first headphones invented?” you will often see German company Beyerdynamic taking the credit. They are an audio company with a terrific reputation for producing high quality headphones and they’ve certainly had plenty of practice. They produced the world’s first dynamic headphones back in 1937. Amazingly the DT 48 headphones are still in production today but they have made various changes over the years. These headphones were still not for public consumption and it had not occurred to anyone that they would be suitable for hi fi listening. In fact DT stood for Dynamic Telephone. The DT 48 headphones were demonstrated to the public in 1950 but it would be several more years before they were widely available.

The First Stereo Headphones

The man credited with producing the first stereo headphones was John C. Koss. As is often the case with newly popular inventions, the technology itself was nothing revolutionary, it was the application. What was new was the fact that Koss used the headphones to allow people to listen to music. Along with an engineer called Martin Lange he had actually invented an audio system, a portable phonograph with speakers and he had included a private switch which allowed the user to listen through SP3 stereophones. They demonstrated the device in Wisconsin in 1958 and although no one was interested in the device itself, they loved the headphones. The Koss stereophones provided a full range for low and high notes and the stereo effect with different signals in the right and left ears mimicked the concert hall. As such people clamored to buy them.

Since then we have refined the technology and produced many variants on the original idea, including wireless headphones which are becoming increasingly popular. The company that Koss founded still manufacture and sell headphones today.

monster headphones beats What To Do When You Feel Stuck In A Life You Don

In fact, the next thing I tell you may sound less than inspiring. But read on, as you will soon find, the most challenging truths are actually the greatest opportunities for amazing joy.

The truth is that humans are destined to feel stuck at various points in their lives. There is no way to avoid it and no way to ignore it. Feeling stuck is an absolute given condition of human beings.

So, you may be asking, “Why is being stuck a given?” It is because humans are always growing, always changing and always evolving. There is never a moment when your body, mind or spirit stops recreating itself. Humans are always desiring (wanting something) even if it is simply a breath of air. When you achieve a goal you have strived toward for years, that goal ceases to be a goal the minute it is attained. And just like you don get rid of bad thoughts or bad habits replace them with better thoughts or better behaviors what you desire is constantly being replaced by what you desire next. This doesn mean you are not momentarily happy with where you are. However, your mind seeks expansion. There is only so long that humans can stay satisfied with where they are before new desires pop into their heads. Desiring is what continually evolves the universe and the human spirit.

Another thing to be aware of is that you have multiple areas of your life that are happening simultaneously. I call these the Nine Environments of Holistic Living. In each of these environments you have different goals and different intentions. You may be focused heavily on one or two areas, and after achieving amazing things in those areas, “suddenly” become aware of another area that is lacking in some way. You are now focusing on that neglected area. Regardless of how satisfied you are in the other areas, the neglected area, you are now focused on, feels stagnate and stuck. For example, a person who achieves a long worked for goal in her career may then shift her focus to relationships and feel stuck in a bad relationship or stuck in not having a relationship. It doesn take away from her career achievements, but the feeling is still there because the focus has shifted.

The feeling of being stuck is simply you telling yourself that there is more that you desire in a given area or areas. The frustration of being stuck, and what may create negative emotions around it, is often caused when you aren sure how to make the changes you want to get unstuck. Thus, being stuck may create a panic inside of you that the situation will never change. The degree to which you feel the stuck ness and how quickly you respond to this feeling often determines how being stuck affects you.

First, I think it useful to define what being stuck really means. Being stuck may not mean what you think it means, which can be what makes being stuck feel so hopeless and frustrating. Being stuck is not a destination. It is not a life sentence. It is also does not define who you are, just where you are at any given moment. Being stuck is simply a notification sign if you will it is time to start making something new and different happen in your life. When you are feeling stuck, it is simply another part of you tapping you on the proverbial shoulder saying, “Hey, I am no longer satisfied with where I am or what I have in a particular area and I need something else.”

Just like if you have ever driven a car and you stop at a red light. When the light turns green, that is your sign to get moving. Being stuck is a simply a green light sign saying, it is time to get moving. The key is knowing how to get moving. This is where being stuck can feel like a horrible condition, a limiting circumstance and a trap. If you don know that pushing on the gas pedal will get you moving in your car, you can move. If your car is in the wrong gear, you can move. And if you resist that the light is green, you cannot move. If you resist that you feel stuck (which means you don welcome the emotion, but instead get caught up in the feelings of being trapped and hampered), you actually put your focus on the being stuck,
beats by dre purple headphones What To Do When You Feel Stuck In A Life You Don
instead of your focus on the sign to get moving. If you embrace that the sign is there, you then have the freedom to explore the options for how to get moving. When you have the freedom to explore, you can usually create change pretty quickly.

This may sound a bit confusing, so let me be as clear as possible given this is a critical piece for allowing yourself to get unstuck. By acknowledging that you are in a place you don want to be, but not delving into the emotions of being there, you free up your energy to focus on where you do want to be. You free up your energy to focus on what you do want, not what you don want. This is the foundation of the Law of Attraction, which says that which you focus your energy on is what you attract to you or unwanted. Learning to use being stuck as a positive sign that you are desiring more, opens you up to asking how to get it, instead of delving into the emotions of being where you don want to be, and fearing you are always going to be there.

No matter what question you ask yourself, you will get an answer. If you ask yourself am I stuck here? What did I do to deserve this? Why does this always happen to me? Am I going to be here forever? will get an answer. And, most likely, you will get an answer that won assist you in pushing on your gas pedal or figuring out you are in the wrong gear. If you ask empowering questions, like do I want that I don have? How can I get it? What have I been doing and what can I do differently? begin focusing on answers that will propel you forward.

Getting unstuck can be an easy and smooth process. The key is using the proper tools to assist you. Using tools exercises, programs, processes, other people, etc. the number one way for re directing your focus. Tools are how humans create in the universe. Learning and using the tools of notes and instruments are what allow you to make music. Learning and using hammers, nails and engineering are what allow you to construct buildings. Learning and using the alphabet, grammar and paper or computers are what allow you to write novels and poetry. Getting unstuck, changing your life, manifesting your desires is done by learning and using the natural tools of creating Law of Attraction, the Nine Environments of Holistic Living, Neuro Linguistic Programming, the Process of Deliberate Creation, the Prosperity Process, the Power of Intention, the Universal Laws, Law of Attraction Coaches, Messages from Abraham or Seth, etc.

No one has to stay stuck. No one has to live a life they don love. It is simply recognizing the sign that it is time to make a change. Then, assessing what tools will assist in making that change, and beginning the process. Embrace the feeling of being stuck so you can get moving,
beats by dre purple headphones What To Do When You Feel Stuck In A Life You Don
seek out the tools you need and start today.

beats headphones at target What not to expect when you’re expecting

This week’s Q is brought to you by expectations: the biggest moving target in all of sports.

Q: Virginia Tech and Virginia (which both have an open date today) own identical 4 2 records at the midway point of the regular season. What’s your progress report on each team as we pause midway through the regular season?

A: The Hokies are right where I thought they’d be record wise, although the road they took to get there wasn’t what I envisioned. Most of us had the nonconference loss coming at Ohio State, not at home against ECU, and the conference loss coming at North Carolina, not at home to Georgia Tech.

Q: If the record is what you anticipated, then does their journey to it even matter?

A: I think it does. The Ohio State win still provides a lot of hope for what we’ll see out of Tech in the second half. The Hokies have discovered what they’re capable of, as well as how vulnerable they can be. That experience should serve them well.

A: What a story so far. Outscoring opponents by an average of nine points a game, against that ambitious schedule, is awfully impressive. With only one road test in the books, though, a lot of people will be looking at next week’s visit to Duke as a strong indicator of whether the Cavaliers are long term contenders in the Coastal Division.

A: Yep. Nobody’s going to dash away with this division. The Cavs have as good a shot as anybody.

Q: After a crazy weekend of college football that saw 11 ranked teams fall (including four of the top six),
white beats by dre headphones What not to expect when you're expecting
what are you most looking forward to today?

A: The teams that are tied for the No. 3 ranking are both underdogs Mississippi State at home against Auburn, and Ole Miss on the road at Texas A Each is a can’t miss game.

Q: 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was fined $10,000 by the NFL this week for wearing “Beats by Dre” headphones during a postgame news conference. Thoughts?

A: Sounds like NFL officials are saving up to buy some “Beats by Dre” headphones. Four more fines such as this and they’ll almost have enough to afford a pair.

Q: Giants ace Madison Bumgarner squares off against Cardinals stud Adam Wainwright in Game 1 of the NLCS tonight. Can you tell us something about either of those pitchers that we don’t know?

A: Maybe. Try this: The area where Bumgarner grew up near Hickory, North Carolina, was nicknamed “Bumtown” almost a century ago because of all the people with that surname who lived there.

Q: What a coincidence. Isn’t that also what they call Baltimore?

Q: Just kidding. You shelled out $400 to take your two kids to Baltimore last week for Game 1 of the ALDS. What can you tell us about the experience?

A: If you must bring your 6 year old daughter into the men’s bathroom at a sold out sporting event, remember that the stall with the shortest line probably has the shortest line for a reason. I’m not sure she’ll remember the Orioles’ eight run eighth inning that night, but I’m confident she’ll never forget the sight when we opened that stall door.

Q: Gross, and noted. All right: Nitty gritty time in NASCAR. What grabs your interest most in tonight’s Sprint Cup race in Charlotte?

A: Jimmie Johnson, no question. He’s 11th in the Chase standings. The field set to be cut to eight after next week’s unpredictable race at Talladega. He’s got to have a big night at a track he’s historically owned.

A: Actually, I don’t. His rough qualifying effort and lousy recent form tells me this just isn’t the year for the six time champ. He’ll get cut after ‘Dega, and the moving target shall move again.

review beats headphones What Men Over the Age of 65 Need to Know about Prostate Cancer

how much are dre beats headphones What Men Over the Age of 65 Need to Know about Prostate Cancer

First, the good news: 2006 figures from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) show a steady decline (approximately 60 percent) in deaths from prostate cancer over the last 20 years. Now, the bad news: 70% of all diagnosed prostate cancer occurs in men ages 65 years or older, according to the American Cancer Society. “And that’s one good reason why they should take advantage of the services they have access to under Medicare.”

There are two common tests used to detect prostate cancer. The first is the PSA test or Prostate Specific Antigen blood test, which measures the amount of PSA enzyme in the blood. While not perfect, it is considered good at detecting early stage prostate cancer.

The second test is the DRE or Digital Rectal Examination. In this way a health professional can check for growths in or enlargement of the prostate gland. A tumor in the prostate can often be felt as a hard lump.

Medicare covers one PSA test every year AND one DRE test every year for Medicare beneficiaries ages 50 and older. There is no coinsurance or Part B deductible for the PSA test, but they both apply to the DRE test.

Keep in mind that there are possible drawbacks to both of these exams. Preventive Services Task Force has determined that that the evidence is insufficient to recommend for or against routine screening for prostate cancer using either exam. In fact, some prostate cancer experts have concerns that extensive screening could lead to over diagnosis of the disease and create unnecessary anxiety among patients. However findings published in the July 1, 2010, issue of Lancet Oncology may indicate that the risk of over diagnosis is less than previously reported.

How Men Can Take Care of Their Prostate Health

While about 80 percent of men who reach age 80 have prostate cancer, there are factors, such as age, race, and family history that may contribute to the risk. There are also steps that you can take to lower your chances.

First, stick to a low fat diet with five or more servings of vegetables and fruits each day. Also include healthy grains such as bread, cereal, rice and pasta into your diet.

review beats headphones What Men Over the Age of 65 Need to Know about Prostate Cancer
using a vitamin supplement may affect your risk of prostate cancer. Currently vitamin E and selenium are being studied to evaluate if they can provide protection from the disease.

Finally, see your doctor annually and get screened. Even though the benefit of these two exams is still up for debate, early detection is still the best solution and often means more treatment options are available and less extensive treatment is necessary.

Prostate and BPH

Next time you pay a visit to your father, your uncle, or any elder gentleman over age 60 or so, inquire them regarding their their prostate. If you know the man well enough, and he feels at ease enough around you , he will certainly share an entire report of the common prostate issues which might be disturbing him, or have troubled him, or will bother him within the near future. That is as a result of an enlarged prostate, benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH), and even prostate cancer might be in the future for each man who past a certain age.

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia Facts that You Need to Know

The term prostate is a minute organ with an approximate size of a walnut. It is situated under the bladder and surrounds the urethra (tube that carries urine from the bladder). This prostate makes a fluid that helps to foster sperm as part of the semen (ejaculatory fluid). Some may think that when you have the benign prostatic hyperplasia symptoms this will lead to a kind of cancer. That can affect the emotional state of the one who is involved. In fact, a benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is nonmalignant enlargement of the prostate gland. Meaning this is not a precursor to prostate cancer.

How A Physician Could Be To Blame For Delay In Detecting Prostate Cancer Until It Metastasizes

Physicians typically employ 2 tests to screen males for prostate cancer. The first is the digital examination. The second is the PSA blood test. Most physicians concur that abnormal results require follow up. This article considers why a patient might be able to pursue a medical malpractice claim if a doctor screens a patient for cancer yet fails to notify the patient or follow up after the test results are abnormal.

I did a Google search and came across your site. It was exactly what I was looking for and was elated to find such a broad range of articles. As I am launching a free magazine in a small town in Florida, I wanted to be as resourceful as possible while still being able to provide some content that is interesting and well written. Your site has all the variables in the mix. Excellent Site hitting all the notes in the scale sort of speak.

When I was 5 years old our family moved to Starkville, Mississippi. My dad had secured a position as a research scientist at Miss. State Univ. that was simply too good to pass up.

Starkville was a small town like many other small towns across America. Life was slow and safe and predictable. All in all, not such a bad place to live.

For the next 12 years I was a Starkvillian. Like so many other young boys I spent most of my free time exploring the world from the comfort of a bicycle seat.

Life was full of adventures. Looking back now, it resembled a series of Norman Rockwell paintings.

But it wasn’t always so idealistic. In fact, for over 20 years after leaving that small town I hated everything to do with Starkville. I called it a nightmare existence in a God forsaken town.

So why do you suppose I hated it?

Like children everywhere, my wonder years consisted of good events, bad events, and many mediocre and neutral events. Good times that made me feel good. Bad times that made me feel bad. And many events stirred little emotional reaction at all.

However, my problem was that I discounted the good events, while elevating the bad ones.

The painful events on my past became like anchors the pillars of the past. The defining moments of my life.

Certain events would happen, and rather than simply feeling the pain and moving on, I would suppress and repress those painful emotions.

Paradoxically, while I denied the feelings, I elevated the events. I would take a painful situation and make it much worse than it really was.

How do you embellish a painful past? Intentionally exaggerate its stature and importance. Like a playwright constructing a play, I would add drama for the effect it created.

I would set the stage. Get the lighting just right. Play suspenseful music in the background. Create a prologue

“The story you are about to hear is true. Only the names have been changed to protect the innocent.”

Like one of those old Dragnet TV shows!

I built it up any way I could. I made it sacred.

And no matter what, I could NOT feel the feelings of those past events and let them go! I needed those unresolved emotions to breathe life into an otherwise dead past.

I spent way too much of my time giving CPR to a corpse of the past. Ever given CPR? It’ll wear you out! It’s hard to do it for very long; it’s just too much work.

I defined my life by those highly selective events of the past that were being kept alive ONLY by my emotional energy.

I Was Giving My Power To The Past

Thoughts and feelings are the very source of your power. Your power your ability and willingness to act comes about because of the constant stream of your thoughts and feelings.

Thoughts and feelings are constantly and consistently springing forth into your consciousness.

A stream of thoughts. A stream of feelings. Together they are the source of your power.

If you’re using those thoughts and feelings to hold onto the past, then you’ll have less power available to you now. Power that could be used to heal your emotions instead becomes diverted into holding the past in place.

I Built My Past Into A Frankenstein’s Monster

Out of that handful of painful events I created a backbone. From the backbone I grew a skeleton. Surrounding the skeleton I grew muscles and skin and internal organs. I gave it a heart. I gave it a voice.

All that growth required conscious effort on my part. I had to keep reminding myself of those painful events.

Building them up and fleshing them out took a lot of my power. But it was worth it. I got to feel like a victim. I got to hide in my self pity. I was entitled. Hey, I EARNED the right to engage in any errant behavior I chose!
