by   -  August 31st, 2015

This article was written by award-winning writer and speaker, Natasha Tracy. In the next article, she will offer the tips about How to Protect Your Mental Health If You’re on the Ashley Madison List

One of the largest data breaches in the world – the Ashley Madison hack of 30 million records – has proven that actions taken online on an adultery website have real-world consequences, too. Of course, after an alleged cheating partner is discovered, relationship separations and even divorces can occur, but worse than that, even hate crimes and unconfirmed suicides have resulted from the Ashley Madison hack. Online cheating actions are not made in a vacuum, they affect lives of spouses, children, and other loved ones in the real world as well.

Death By Sugar: Kicking the Addiction for a Better Life

by   -  August 28th, 2015

Death By Sugar: Kicking the Addiction preview

Not long ago, I wrote an article about sugar and the Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation’s recommendation to start taxing high-sugar content foods and drinks. There are some interesting statistics for the concept, particularly the fact that Canadians and Americans alike are consuming toxic levels of sugar every day. After writing that article, it got me thinking about my own consumption and that of my family. For the most part, I considered my consumption to be fairly low – but oh was I surprised when I started to track it.

I am not typically one to have sodas or high sugar drinks in my house, nor do I eat a lot of candy, or high sugar foods. Yet, my sugar intake was well above the recommended 6-10 teaspoons per day. How could this be so?

Brother Jericho Protects Cecil’s Cubs Amidst Death Claims

By now, I’m sure many of you are aware of the poaching death of Cecil the lion, a local favorite in Zimbabwe. The thirteen-year-old lion has been tracked by the Wildlife Conservation Research Unit in Oxford's Department of Zoology, making him very beloved by those who knew of him. I won’t go into the gory details, but let’s just say, Cecil suffered needlessly, which is in part causing all the outrage. The other part was due to the fact he was a protected animal that was lured out of his sanctuary at the Hwange National park in Zimbabwe. The “trophy" hunter who took down Cecil – a Minnesotan dentist, I’m afraid – is currently a fugitive and due to international outrage, he’s being sought for extradition to face charges in Zimbabwe for the illegal hunt.

It’s not the first poaching conviction for Palmer, either, who has one on record for killing a black bear in Wisconsin in 2006, then lying to authorities about where he killed it. Despite going underground, Palmer did issue a statement claiming he was misled by local guides to believing the hunt was legal, and he had no idea the lion he shot was “a local favorite."
