A quick visit to Jake’s website reveals that he was one of the first people to invent the personal trainer fitness industry over thirty years ago. I couldn’t find any outside verification of that and have to wonder whether ole Jake and Al Gore have the same publicist. (Remember Al’s claim that he invented the Internet?)
I’m not sure why June is Fireworks Safety Month when Independence Day is in July; perhaps it’s because sales begin in June and in many areas—my own included—people start shooting them off late in the month. To keep your family safe during the holiday, here are ten quick tips for fireworks safety.
10. Follow Instructions Carefully
Always read through all of the directions provided on every firework—even if you’ve shot that particular firework before. Changes can be made on various products without notice, making it dangerous to set off anything you aren’t familiar with. Only one firework should be lit at a time.
9. Do Not Let Children Light Fireworks
Small children in particular should be kept back at a safe distance—even from sparklers. An adult should be present any time fire is being used.
8. Keep Water Handy
“The Biggest Loser” with fascination- although I don’t watch the show on a regular basis, the premise of rewarding the reality star participants for their hard work dieting and exercising really appeals to me. I find it more than a little ironic that the viewers who make the most fun of the participants on the show are the same people who could most benefit from a good work-out and healthier eating.
Toxic chemicals have been slowly but surely becoming a big issue here in the United States. Many of the chemicals we have inserted into our everyday products are banned, after all, in other countries for causing health problems, birth defects, and even being linked to cancer. As more people become aware about these toxins and the impact they can have on their health and the health of their children, more campaigns are spawned in order to get products that contain them off the market entirely.
Tonight on CNN, we will have the chance to see Dr. Sanjay Gupta explain more about these chemicals in his investigative report, Toxic America. Toxic America will run both tonight and tomorrow night (June 2 and 3) at 8 PM ET.
