Male menopause (andropause) is caused by rising levels of the sex hormone binding protein and reduced production of the three main male hormones -- Testosterone, Androstenedione, and Dihydrotestosterone. To correct rising levels of the three hormones don't use hormone pills or creams, as these produce excessive conversion to female hormones and don't improve testicular production or release hormones bound to the sex hormone binding proteins. To determine your status you can order salivary test kits to your door, and send the results to Genova Diagnostics Labs in Atlanta. This is the very best natural and only safe way to correct andropause. Also, you must remove biotoxins that mimic female hormones -- and bioactivated bioavailable medical grade health supplements are the most safe & powerful way to do so.

The World Health Organization has reported an outbreak of the Marburg virus, similar to Ebola, has appeared in eastern Uganda on the border of Kenya. Thus far 5 cases have been reported prompting the WHO to deploy funds to keep the spread contained. Where did Marburg Originate? Marburg was originally identified in 1967 when two simultaneous outbreaks occurred in Marburg and Frankfurt, Germany. An outbreak in Serbia also occurred that same time. Since then rare isolated cases have popped up in Kenya, Angola, South Africa, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. What is Marburg virus and its Symptoms? Marburg virus is apart of the same family as Ebola, the Filoviridae. Just like Ebola, it causes a hemorrhagic fever, where victims may bleed, have fever, vomiting, diarrhea, headaches, muscle aches, rash, red eyes, sore throat and abdominal pain to name a few. Image from KeyWordSuggest How is Marburg Transmitted? Marburg virus is transmitted to humans from monkeys and bats such as the African fruit bat and Rousettus bat. But similarly to Ebola, human to human contact can spread Marburg, especially during body preparation for burial. Saliva, tears, vomit, semen and blood can transmit the Marburg virus from human to human. Fruit Bat, Image from Dignited How is Marburg Treated? There is no treatment currently known for Marburg. It has an estimated 88% fatality rate. Its incubation period ranges from 5 days to 2 weeks and those exposed may need to be in isolation for up to 21 days. RNA…
On Wednesday the MN Vikings activated Teddy Bridgewater and placed Sam Bradford on injured reserve (IR). Bridgewater has not played in almost two full seasons after suffering a noncontact injury in practice early into the 2016 season. The Vikings then acquired Sam Bradford via trade who took over as QB1 and brought the Vikings to a mediocre 8-8 season. While it’s true that Sam Bradford has his best pro season in 2016 -- passing for 3877 yards and a NFL record 71.6% completion rate but a struggling offensive line led to too many hurries, knockdowns, sacks and a dismal running game. But still Bradford was the go to guy at the beginning of the 2017 season and had a career high day in the Vikings opening game vs. the Saints. But it was just not to be. A knee injury, or perhaps The Curse of the MN Vikings, forced him out and backup Case Keenum took over and quietly led the Vikings to the top of the NFC North going 4-2 as a starter. BUT THEN -- a miracle recovery from Teddy Bridgewater has brought him back to the Vikings roster and he is suiting up for the first time in more than a season. What’s a head coach to do? Force Teddy in and hope he can bring back his magic or stay with the dependable backup Keenum? The Vikings are currently 6-2 and lead the division. After all, if it ain’t broke … It really was a no…
If the 2017 elections are any indication of what’s to come in the 2018 midterms, Republicans are in trouble, and not because of a clean sweep by Democrats in Virginia on Tuesday. It was how Republicans lost on Tuesday, and how badly, that should have them concerned. Democrats Sweep the Big Three in Virginia The Virginia governor’s race that got all the media attention wasn’t close. Polls had Democrat Ralph Norman leading slightly, but his lead over Republican Ed Gillespie had shrunk from as many as nine points to three or fewer points in a matter of days. Warnings of past polls leaning Left in Virginia gave Republicans hope, but it was false hope, as Norman won by 8.6 percentage points. The most important election for Democrats on Tuesday was that of Virginia’s attorney general. State attorneys general have been the best (and in many instances the last) line of defense for Democrats against the actions of Donald Trump’s administration, especially the travel ban. Incumbent Democrat Mark Herring beat Republican challenger John Adams by 6.5 percentage points. Democrat Justin Fairfax completed the clean sweep of Virginia with a win over Republican Jill Vogel to become lieutenant governor. He won by 5.4 percentage points. The real gains for Democrats were made in Virginia’s district elections, though. Republican Majority in Virginia House Vanishes The biggest blow for Republicans came in Virginia’s House of Delegates, where they’ve lost 14 seats as of this writing, with two more close races predicted for Democrats and…
A new study from the American Medical Association (AMA), the Mayo Clinic and Stanford University finds 1 in 5 physicians plan to cut back their hours next year and 1 in 50 will leave the profession completely within the next 2 years. Burnout is cited to be the main cause and is one of the biggest threats to health care today. According to AMA President Dr. David Barbe, “An energized, engaged, and resilient physician workforce is essential to achieving national health goals.” And burnout affects all fields of medicine, surpassing 50%, in those including primary care and specialties such as gynecology, neurology, urology, emergency medicine, anesthesiology, cardiology and critical care to name a few. Patients are at risk because if doctors aren’t at the top of their game, things get missed. Moreover the keen instinct of a clinician is imperative to diagnosing correctly, and this gets blunted when one is emotionally fatigued, or burned out. Why are Doctors Burning Out? A variety of factors can lead to physician burnout but the following appear to be the most cited: Electronic medical records – these are time-consuming to learn and implement, take time away from patients and may be financially burdensome due to their cost and lack of revenue for those who struggle to type and work with computers. High patient insurance deductibles – with insurance companies not paying until patients reach their deductible, it forces doctor’s offices to work harder to collect the income needed to run a practice. Physicians do…
Long before talkies, music was making movies better. It still is. What would Charlie Chaplin’s “Oceana Roll Dance” in The Gold Rush be without music, or Johnny Depp’s depiction in Benny and Joon for that matter? A more contemporary example would be how Daft Punk’s soundtrack for Tron: Legacy helped make “The Grid” a very real place for moviegoers. That said, here are the 10 best uses of music in movies, based on the lasting effect the music had in the movie and beyond the movie, the popular and critical success of the music and the legacy left. 10. Night Ranger’s “Sister Christian” in Boogie Nights This one might not be on a lot of people’s lists, but the first time I saw Mark Wahlberg, Tom Jane and John C. Reilly attempt to steal from a coked out Alfred Molina to the sound of Night Ranger’s “Sister Christian” while a silent, house boy tossed exploding firecrackers around the room, I was mesmerized. It’s one of the most uncomfortable situations ever recorded, and the song makes the scene’s mise-en-scène a must-see. 9. Jerry Goldsmith’s score for Rudy I used to think Rudy’s struggle to realize his dream made me cry every time I watched him succeed, but I’ve discovered the crescendo of the music when Rudy sacks the Georgia Tech quarterback has more of an effect than the images. I get emotional just listening to the score for Angelo Pizzo’s football masterpiece, and I’m not the only one. The music is…
There were plenty of NFL teams that made playoff statements in Week 9 -- some good, some bad. No team made a bigger statement than Philadelphia, though. The NFC road to the Super Bowl will go through Philadelphia The Eagles (8-1) have been fantastic and should end up the top playoff seed in the NFC. The rest of Philadelphia’s schedule isn’t easy, with two games against Dallas, one at Seattle and one at the Rams. But with eight wins already and a home game against the Bears and the hapless Giants on the schedule, the Eagles should win more than 10 games. If the offensive line holds up and Carson Wentz stays healthy, the Eagles might win 14. As for their opponent in Week 9... The Broncos will miss the playoffs The Broncos are a mess when they have the ball, and their defense was picked apart for 51 points by Wentz. Worse yet, the Broncos will take their sixth loss of the season at home against the Patriots next week. The Denver defense can’t carry this team to the playoffs if the turnovers continue, unless Kansas City collapses. The AFC road to the Super Bowl won’t go through Kansas City MVP candidate Alex Smith was stymied by an overachieving Dallas secondary and pass rush, and Kareem Hunt was taken out of the game by his own coach. He had just nine carries. The Chiefs were sloppy pre-snap, wouldn’t establish a running game nor stop the run. The Chiefs will…
On Sunday, October 29th, the Miss Peru pageant was televised live to millions of homes in its native country. Beauty pageants are traditionally sexist and patriarchal and Peruvian audiences expected a typical affair. Let's face it, you pretty much know what you are going to get when you tune into a televised beauty pageant. But pageant organizer, Jessica Newton, herself a former beauty queen, didn't want anything to do with a traditional affair, instead she wanted to use the enormously popular platform to highlight Peru's alarming record of gender violence. And so Newton approached all 23 contestants, each of which agreed to abandon the traditional: The women come onto stage wearing sequined shimmering mini-dresses and, one by one, step forward and reveal to the camera their full name, the location they represent and their bust, waist & hip size. Instead they all overwhelmingly agreed to replace it with: The women come onto stage wearing their mini-dresses but instead of listing off their measurements, each contestant offers vital statistics stating figures of violence against women in Peru. And that's what they did. A sample: “My name is Camila Canicoba and I represent the Department of Lima. My measurements are: 2,202 cases of reported femicide in the past year in my country.” “My name is Karen Cueto and I represent Lima and my measurements are: 82 femicides and 156 attempted femicides so far this year.” Eventual pageant winner Romina Lozano, said her “measurements” were “3,114 female victims of trafficking have been registered…
“If tyranny or oppression every come into this country it will come in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.” –President James Madison In light of the recent attacks in Manhattan, New York, one might ask as to how this is happening in America after September 11th, 2001. What do I mean? With all of the bureaucracies that have been created and sold to the American people as to help secure and safeguard them, you would think that we are safer now more than ever. Nothing could be further from the truth. What is happening to America from within could have NEVER happened from a foreign enemy without (Leviticus 26:15). Foreigners could only have dreamed of doing what corrupt politicians have been allowed to do to us in this country. It is all brought to you with the help of your local politicians who have sold you out! (Luke 22:48) People seem to be led astray by asking the wrong questions, and how couldn’t they when they are given the wrong information? For example, when terror attacks happen, people are looking for the culprit and rightly so. Yet, the lying media gets in there on cue and lays the blame on groups that, in many cases, do not even exist. ISIS, ISIL, Al Qaeda etc. are groups that are created to divert you away from the responsible parties. After all, whom does terror work for? Who gains the most and who is asking you to give up your rights? Is…
So have you purchased your gun insurance yet? In case you shoot someone, there are insurance policies available to cover any liabilities you might face, pay for your bail if you are accused of a crime, cover your attorney fees, and even pay for any psychological therapy you might need. So if you are going to fire away, nice to know that you are financially covered, right? Legislation has been introduced in six states that would make gun insurance mandatory for all gun owners. New York, Hawaii, Washington, North Carolina, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts would require government-mandated firearms insurance, and several insurance companies are considering offering such a product. In fact, the National Rifle Association offers scaled down coverage called Carry Guard right now in all 50 states. The organization’s website states rather dramatically that: “There is a whole team of lawyers attached to every bullet that leaves the barrel of your weapon. If the suspect goes down, even if you’re justified in shooting, we guarantee you the world is going to come crashing down on you.” Should every gun owner be required to buy liability insurance? After all, if you drive a car, you are required by every state in the U.S. to have liability insurance. So, if drivers have to have auto insurance, why shouldn’t gun owners have to have gun owner’s insurance? First of all, courts nationwide have determined that driving is a privilege. And not a (second amendment) right as defended by gun owners. A driver…
