Taking charge of diabetes


EARLY DIAGNOSIS
EARLY DIAGNOSIS
When Greg Sanchez and his 15-year-old son, Chris, used to go grocery shopping, it was the ol' grab 'n' toss routine. Grab a frozen pizza, some sugary cereal and a six-pack of Coke and toss it in the cart.

Now, since Sanchez was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, a trip to the market requires more time, thought and effort. But, it also offers this San Diego father and son hope for a long and healthy future.

"I've had to make changes in my diet. And, in Chris', too," says Sanchez, who has lost 12 pounds since January thanks to a more nutritious diet and walking program.

This Immigration Thing?


This national dialog that is upon us about immigration and undocumented workers got me to thinking. My paternal grandparents, Dennis and Nellie Dennehy immigrated, legally, from County Cork, Ireland, Millstreet town. I loved their brogue. I’m not sure exactly when they came but they settled in Bridgeport, Connecticut around 1910. They had one son, my dad, Edward. Grandpa was a shop steward for Jenkins valves, Bridgeport. He would regale my brothers and I with stories of the “old sod” and how he came to America.

FIGHTING WORDS
FIGHTING WORDS
Early this year, an amateur scholar named Paul J.J. Payack made a reckless, some would say offensive, announcement. By the end of 2006, he claimed, the English language will acquire its 1 millionth word.

This assertion shot like a comet across the world's newsrooms. National Public Radio, CNN, the Sunday Times of London, the People's Daily, the Australian Broadcasting Corp. pounced. Their stories were whimsical, playful, fun.

The benefits of regular physical activity are overwhelmingly positive for everyone, but even so most Americans, including men, women and young people, fail to get enough exercise. Thirty minutes of moderate intensity exercise done five days a week substantially reduces the risk of dying from coronary heart disease which is now the nation’s leading cause of death. Physical activity can also decrease the risk for stroke, colon cancer, Type 2 Diabetes and high blood pressure. In addition, exercise may help you to lower cholesterol, control and maintain a healthy body weight, assist in the maintenance and development of healthy joints and bones, promote psychological well being and reduce feelings of stress and anxiety.

The Minutewoman

From the days of our American History classes, we remember the ‘Minuteman’ as a symbol of the fighting spirit of the early colonists.
