Despite our diligent label reading, the incidence of “food fraud” is up 60% since last year alone, according to the nonprofit USP, the scientific organization that helps set standards for the "quality, safety and benefit" of foods and medicines. www.foodfraud.org.

All too often, women and some men, but in my experience, mostly women, experience the fatigue of “having it all”. More and more women, by choice or necessity, work a full-time job in addition to family and home responsibilities leaving little, if any, time for them. Likewise, many of us in the helping professions struggle or have struggled with the balance of giving so much emotionally to not only clients, but family and friends, and find ourselves depleted. In both cases, it is very easy to face burnout.
We live in a world of dissention and turmoil. We live in a world of haves and have-nots. We live in a world of love and fear. We live in a world where fear is used to manipulate people. What does all of this have to do with names? Knowing how to interpret a name assists us in realizing where the fears lie with a person, where the gifts lay and how one can overcome their challenges. Knowing their names enables us to assist in uplifting others, into becoming someone who can help others see through the smoke and mirrors
Dear Dr. Romance: After experiencing alot of physical and emotional abuse in my life, my last relationship was very damaging emotionally and physically. Now, many years later, I haven't had a serious relationship or even a date since. I've had two opportunities this year, but one wanted to be friends,the other is working on overcoming his addiction,and has been successful for several years.
While we are single in our twenties, most of us are still holding on to the dream of finding the perfect guy, having the perfect wedding, and creating the perfect family. By the time we reach our thirties, we recognize the reality: relationships are difficult, and they require work and compromise. Nothing about it will be perfect. Upon this realization, the set of single women seemingly splits into two groups: the ones who can make significant compromises in order to be married, and the ones who can not.
It seems to be the way of our society, and maybe there is some truth to it also, people who are single, all too often seem to be in conflict with their single hood and wish they were not single. But, I have a theory that many people who are single for a length of time, are single because they actually deep down want to be, and need to be single.
Did you grow up believing that if only someone REALLY loved you in the way you needed to be loved, then you would feel happy, safe, lovable and worthy? Certainly being truly loved by parents goes a long way toward supporting children in feeling safe and lovable, but it is not the whole story.
Are you single and don't know why? These tweeters have wisdom. Well, at least they know how to use social media, and they are not afraid to tell it like they think it is. Their opinions are raw and only edited for grammar's sake.
