Some friends are always there for you...

So, I'm walking with my friend Tanya this week, and of course we talk about "what's new" stuff... and I'm told that I'm stressed. So what does a good friend do? Sends a funny email, that's what!

Stress Relief

In case you are having a rough day, here is a stress management technique recommended in all the latest Psychological journals. You have to read all 7 steps to completely learn how to manage the stress in your life.

The funny thing is that it really does work and will make you smile...

1. Picture yourself lying on your belly on a warm rock that hangs out over a crystal clear stream.

2. Picture yourself with both your hands dangling in the cool running water..

3. Birds are sweetly singing in the cool mountain air.

4. No one knows your secret place.

5. You are in total seclusion from that hectic place called the world.

6. The soothing sound of a gentle water fall fills the air with a cascade of serenity.

7. The water is so crystal clear that you can easily make out the face of the person you are holding underwater.

Hand Sanitizers Info!

As H1N1 panic begins to boil again, here are a few facts about effective prevention ...
• Alcohol-based hand sanitizers have been proven more effective than plain soap & water in preventing the transmission of bacteria via hands.
• Your hands also tend to stay cleaner longer after using a hand sanitizer.
• Effective hand sanitizers should contain between 60-and-80% alcohol.
• The idea that frequent use of hand sanitizers will make bacteria resistant to treatment is bogus.
• Hand sanitizers are easier on skin than soap because most now contain skin conditioners.
• To use a hand sanitizer effectively, first make sure your hands are free of visible grime & dirt.
• To be effective, sanitizer needs to be rubbed in vigorously for 30 seconds, until hands are dry.
• Never rinse hands with water or wipe with a towel afterward as it counteracts the effectiveness.

Pass the Torch... Here...!

© Copyright (c) The Vancouver Sun

ATHENS — Some believe the 2010 Olympic Games won't begin until Feb. 12, when the opening ceremonies are held at BC Place Stadium. Others say it begins earlier than that.

They believe it begins at 2 a.m. Thursday, when 10 hours and thousands of kilometres away in Olympia, Greece, actresses performing as priestesses will gather in the Temple of Hera and use the sun's rays to light the Olympic flame in the bowl of a parabolic mirror.

The culmination of years of planning, the spark of light in many ways signifies the end of the six-year organizing period and the start of the 2010 Games. By now, organizing committees like Vanoc are supposed to have everything finished and simply be able to wait for the celebrations to begin.

"It is the moment when Canadians will start to get excited about the Olympics like never before," said Nicola Kettlitz, spokesman for Coca-Cola's Olympic Project Team. "It happens every time. Once the torch is lit people start to get excited about it."

In Greece, the excitement is building already. Thursday's event marks the first time in history that the Olympic cultural ceremony for the lighting of a winter torch will be held in the "ancient stadium" in Olympia, the cradle of the Games.

While all Olympic flames are lit in the Temple of Hera, winter cultural ceremonies have in the past been held in another area called "De Coubertin's Grove," named for the founder of the modern Olympics, Pierre De Coubertin. The summer ceremonies are held in the original stadium.

Jim Richards, director of torch relays for the Vancouver Organizing Committee, said Vanoc appealed to the Hellenic Olympic Committee to change the location.

"We went back to them and talked to them about the goals of our relay, and why holding the cultural festivities in the ancient stadium would be right. It was a real priority for us," he said. "They graciously agreed."

After the flame is lit, the torch will begin an eight-day journey around Greece. It will then be handed over to Vanoc on Oct. 29 to begin a 10-hour flight back to Victoria, where the first of 12,000 torchbearers will start the 106-day relay covering every province and territory, from west to north to east and finally home again to Vancouver.

Guests at the lighting will include Gov.-Gen. Michaelle Jean; B.C. Premier Gordon Campbell; Renata Wielgosz, Canada's ambassador to Greece; Gary Lunn, Canada's minister of state for sport; and several B.C. mayors, including Vancouver's Gregor Robertson. The IOC will be represented by president Jacques Rogge and Rene Fasel, chairman of the Vancouver Coordination Commission.

Richards said the process of repatriating the flame back to Canada is, in one sense, very simple, and in another very complex. It's as straightforward as taking it on board an aircraft and flying it home (although Vanoc did have to apply for a special exemption from Transport Canada in order to carry an open flame on a jet). And yet it's difficult because the flame needs extraordinary care.

Housed in a modified miner's lamp, it is fuelled with regular lighter fluid, but needs to be tended carefully. At any time there are at least three flames — a "mother" and two "daughters" — all of which are meant as insurance against the unthinkable catastrophe of a flame actually going out.

Ensuring the flame is lit — and stays lit — is of highest priority for organizers. In fact, the 2010 flame already has been lit, just in case weather doesn't cooperate Thursday and clouds mar the sky. The Hellenic Olympic Committee performed a lighting several days ago, when the sun was shining brightly, and kept aside at least one flame for insurance. Nature is fickle and doesn't perform to the commands of nations or the International Olympic Committee.

"The HOC has already done several test lightings just in case the weather cools," Richards said. "But they tell us they expect it to be sunny on the day of the ceremony."

Once the ceremonial flame is successfully lit, the "backup" flame will be extinguished.

During the relay, Richards said Vanoc will have 10 lanterns in operation, just in case something goes wrong.

Never in the history of the modern Olympic movement has a torch been fully extinguished, although Canada registered one embarrassing moment when the cauldron for the 1976 Montreal Summer Games went out. A helpful bystander re-lit the cauldron with a cigarette lighter, causing consternation for the organizers. It was extinguished and re-lit with one of the Olympic flames kept on standby.

A cautious approach is also being taken in the area of security. Greek officials are hoping to avoid a repeat of the last lighting ceremony in 2008, when pro-Tibet protesters and others tried to disrupt the relay for the Beijing Summer Games. From the start of the ceremony in Olympia, the international portion was dogged with protesters who tried to douse the flame. Protests were particularly fierce in London, Paris and San Francisco, leading the International Olympic Committee to ban future organizers from conducting international relays.

As a result, the Vancouver flame will travel through Greece and then immediately be taken to Canada. An early plan for a refuelling stop in France that would allow the flame to be taken to Vimy Ridge — where Canada marked its bloody involvement in the First World War — was cancelled due to concern it would be seen as an international tour.

Even so, Vanoc and its security wing, the Vancouver 2010 Integrated Security Unit, are bracing for protests from a small but disparate group of people united under several banners, including native rights, anti-poverty, anti-globalization and environmental extremism. Vanoc has already encountered some of these protests in the past at countdown celebrations and public meetings.

While they are prepared for limited protests, the atmosphere here Tuesday was one of excitement.

The Hellenic Olympic Committee announced Monday that Vassilis Dimitriadis — a Greek giant slalom star who participated in the 1998, 2002 and 2006 Winter Games — will be the first torchbearer. Toronto student Niki Georgiadou will be the last, carrying the torch into the Panathenian Stadium for the handover ceremony.

In between, the torch will travel through 22 districts, 42 municipalities, three municipal districts and one community. Organizers will conduct 36 lighting ceremonies, including two at archeological sites.

For Canada, the Greek leg of the relay will be a relatively small affair. After the lighting and before the handover, Vanoc won't have any regular staff on site. The sole Canadian representative will be Konstantinos Kastigiannis, Vanoc's "ambassador" and president of the Canadian-Greek Chamber of Commerce in Athens.

But it's still the 2010 flame. And in less than 10 days, it will come home. Let the Games begin.

Big Brother Winner uses winnings to finance drug ring

American Press (AP) Article
Photo: Getty Images

Accused ... Adam Jasinski.
The winner of the United States reality TV show Big Brother has confessed to using his $US500,000 prize to buy thousands of oxycodone pills and resell them, authorities say.

Adam Jasinski, 31, of Delray Beach, Florida, has been charged with attempting to sell 2000 pills in Massachusetts to a government witness.

Federal prosecutors said Jasinski was arrested after he flew to Boston and showed the witness a sock containing two plastic bags filled with oxycodone, a powerful painkiller that is a popular street drug because of its euphoric effects.

As agents tried to arrest Jasinski at a strip mall in North Reading, he struggled and threw the sock under a car parked nearby, Todd Prough, a special agent with the Drug Enforcement Administration, said in an affidavit filed in court.

Jasinski won $US500,000 last year on the CBS reality show in which contestants live under constant surveillance and vote once a week to evict each other in hopes of becoming the last house guest standing and winning the grand prize.

Prough said in the affidavit that Jasinski told him that he has been using his winnings to buy thousands of oxycodone pills and has been reselling them along the East Coast for the past several months.

Jasinski's lawyer, Valerie Carter, did not immediately return a call on Tuesday.

He faces a maximum of 20 years in prison and a $US1 million fine on a charge of possession of oxycodone pills with intent to distribute.

Body Confidence Secrets

See the full article at Glamour magazine! This is only a sample of page 1 of the article.

In her memoir, Hungry, 23-year-old Crystal Renn chronicles her battle with anorexia and exercise bulimia as she struggled to make it as the skinniest of supermodels. It wasn’t until she embraced her curves and became a plus-size model (that’s the modeling industry’s term for models over size 6) that her career skyrocketed. We asked the size-12 beauty how she learned to love her body and how you can too.

First, what inspired you to write Hungry?
I want women and the fashion industry to hear me and think, You know what—maybe there should be all different body types up on the runway, maybe that’s a really a great idea. I want women to be happy with who they are because I think that once they do that, all opportunities in their lives will get even bigger and better for them. Doors will be opened to them because they will be ready for it. Think about it: If you hate yourself, you don’t like your relationships, you don’t do as well at work, you don’t take all the chances that you want in your life. I would like to see women overcome that and take it to the next level.

I want women to be empowered, to be confident, to love life, and that’s why I chose the title Hungry for my book. Because it’s hungry for everything. And that’s what I want women to take away from it—to love themselves but also to accomplish your dreams.

Loving your body is one of those things that’s easier said than done. What advice do you have for women to put the thought into action?
Instead of focusing on all the bad things like, “Oh my gosh, I hate my thighs,” I say let’s look at the hair and say, “Oh wow, I’m having such a great hair day.” Or “Oh wow, my eyes are so clear today…I really like my lips….” And then eventually your mind will start to change and think of the positive things when you look in the mirror instead of focusing on the negative. It definitely takes time—it’s a habit—but just like anything else, over time, you can change the way your mind works.

So when you’re having a bad day and look in the mirror, what part of your body do you embrace to change your thought process?
There are a few things I look at on those days: I say, “Wow, I have full, great, healthy hair,” because now I eat healthy and I can see my health in my hair. That’s one thing. I also say, “Wow, I have great cheekbones. Let’s play them up, put some bronzer on them.” And then I might say, “Oh wow, I have a great waist; I’m going to show it off by belting my dress today.” Or I’ll put on some red lipstick and see how great I feel. I love wearing lipstick. It’s my feel-good-immediately move.

FLU Shot Articles and Links

An email from Charlotte
Hey Zack, as promised here are some of my vaccine links. Just got the top one today. I was never anti-vaccine because I really didn't know much about them and thought they"must" be safe. Went to a course on vaccines when I was pregnant, made me start looking into things and changed my mind forever. Glad you took the no vaccine part of the bet. Meg will likely not get one of the 3 common flu viruses but she'll likely have more colds, skin issues and if she has asthma she may need her inhaler more (that was a big thing for me before I stopped getting the shot).

Anyway hope the info helps :) Didn't want to overload you but, I've got lots more of info if you want, just let me know. This next one actually has the listed ingredients of every Canadian vaccine via their web-site.

Thanks to Rod Coulter at for this one

Aid for Philippines

From MAY MURI, a facebook friend. She asked me to share this, my suggestion is to help through an organized charity.

Because youre on broadcast radio, I thought youd be very helpful on getting the word out. This one time campaign is not related to any organization or individual. Its just me, some friends and family who want to initiate it. Were not connected to any not for profit organizations and therefore are not issuing any tax receipts for individuals/companies who would require it.
I have some contact nos though that they can call to help/donate if need be.
