For more than 30 years Lisa Rollins has been a part of upstate radio. Called the most calming, caring, conservative voice in radio, Lisa can see all sides of the issue, yet is never afraid to share her own personal opinion!
No, I'm not a big football fan when it comes to the NFL...I DO love
CLEMSON, but I DID so enjoy the game between The Seahawks and Broncos. I actually enjoyed the Pre-game stuff even more; learning about the players, where they came from, etc. ne of the things I usually very much enjoy are the commercials, but that was NOT the case this year. Of course, I loved the Budweiser Puppy and horse but had seen much of it previewed on line before the game. That's something that didn't used to happen. Anyway, what about you; was there a favorite part?
I can't imagine what those 300 thousand or so folks near Charleston West Virginia are going thru again today. It's day 5 with NO tap water. You can't drink it, you can't bathe in it, brush your teeth with it, wash your hair, do anythig with it because of a toxic spill that got into the Elk River last Thursday. Many schools, restaurants and other businesses will be closed today because of the lack of clean tap water, but Gov. Earl Tomblin says all state offices will be open. This is just ANOTHER reason why you should be prepared!
Are you ready for what today holds when it comes to caring for your loved ones?
Makes you think doesn't it!
State health officials say they are doing all they can to help people QUIT smoking. they announced yesterday that uninsured smokers in South Carolina can get free nicotine replacement therapy from the Department of Health and Environmental Control. Tobacco use accounts for about 1 in 5 U.S. deaths claiming about 443 thousand every year. The American Cancer Society says that's more thatn alcohol, AIDS, car accidents, suicide, homicide and illegal drugs combined. They say South Carolina ranks 15th nationally in lung cancer mortality.
Yep, I got my flu shot. Now, I'm getting a lot of grief! Some of my co-workers and friends are giving me a hard time about it. I was sick with the noro virus over the holidays and went to the doctor's office at which time I went ahead and got my flu vaccine. I actually MEANT to get it soonwer, but didn't. Listen do what you wish but I don't wanna take a change on the H1N1 this year. A lot of you have your own reasons as to why you don't wanna get yours, do what you think is right for you and yours...and so did I.
I am so thankful for those of you who work each and every day to help those in need. Those who are homeless, hungry, and in need f of a hand! You do God's work and more of us need to join you In talking about the recent frigid cold that had enveloped the upstate and MOST of the US I just can't believe that with all the help, all the shelters, churches, etc, there is any reasn why anyone would CHOOSE to stay out in the cold rather than go in and some of you have told me it's because they have problems tructing others to help them. Some of them suffer from mental illnesses, drug and or alcohol abuse, and the like. So what can we do for them? PRAY! Pray and act! Offer to work at shelters, offer to drive a church van to pick up in areas where they gather, and do what you can to help. It may save a life...and will most assuredly, will better yours a well.
Touching men's underwear may make women spend more. A study published in the Journal of Consumer Psychology tested to see to see if sexual cues, in this case men’s underwear, affected a woman’s shopping habits. Surprisingly, study authors found that when women touched boxers, as opposed to other garments like a shirt, they tended to disregard price tags and pay more money than necessary for things like chocolate, a chair, and a keyboard. The same wasn’t true if the women only saw the boxers. (Women's Health)
Imagine eating whatever you want without having to worry about getting fat or developing heart disease. That is the life of the grizzly bear. The 1 thousand pound creature eats up to 58,000 calories per day without suffering from any of the ill-effects of obesity.
Before hibernating, grizzlies eat around 100 pounds worth of nuts, salmon and berries, which increases their cholesterol and causes their blood pressure to jump - but unlike humans, they do not suffer from heart attacks, clogged arteries, or diabetes.
The drug company, Amgen is now study 12 of these bears, held in captivity at Washington State University to discover their weight loss secrets and try to see if there's a way to help humans with their findings.
If you're going through hell, keep going. New research finds people who've been through hardship are actually happier in the long run than people who have not. To find this, researchers asked 15-thousand adults about painful emotional experiences they'd been through such as the loss of a loved one or divorce, and whether or not they'd dealt with the negative event or were struggling with it. Next participants were presented with six positive scenarios that included simple pleasures, such as seeing a waterfall on a hike. Researchers found that the people who previously dealt with their emotional pain were more able to enjoy small pleasures. Researchers say, "Individuals who had dealt with more adversity in the past reported an elevated capacity for savouring."
Do you have a trusted neighbor that takes care of your dog when you go on vacation? New research finds that most Americans don’t, and it’s because Americans have become less trusting of each other. An AP-GfK poll reveals that just one-third of Americans say that most people can be trusted, and nearly two-thirds of people say “you can’t be too careful” in dealing with people. Less than one-third of people said they trust clerks who swipe their credit cards, driver on the road, or people they meet when traveling. Political and social scientist are worried about this trend, and say that distrust in society seems to encourage corruption, while trust brings people together to work towards the common good. The experts say there’s no single explanation as to why Americans don’t trust each other anymore, but it may be due to the ever-grow gap between America’s rich and poor or because morals and ethics are not priorities any more.
A California pastor was disturbed when he discovered that the Bible was labeled fiction when shopping at a Costco. Calen Kaltenback figured that the label must've been a mistake but couldn't get any answers from employees. He proceeded to take a picture and tweet it out to his followers, many of whom attend the non-denominational Discovery Church in Southern California. A Costco spokesperson said that the labeling was due to "human error at a warehouse" and that it was "all fixed," though the Bibles already labeled as fiction on store shelves have not been relabeled. The company did not apologize. Kaltenback wants the situation to be remedied.
