Hereeeeeeeeeeeeees...  Kathy’s Korner!


A lawyer and a senior  citizen are sitting next to each other on a

long flight. The  lawyer is thinking that seniors are so dumb that

he could get one over  on them easily. So the lawyer asks, "Would

you like to play a  fun game?"

The senior is tired  and just wants to take a nap, so he says, "No,

thank you. I'd just  like to catch a few winks."

The lawyer persists.  "But this game is a lot of fun! I ask you a

question, and if you  can't tell me the answer, you pay me only

five dollars. Then  you ask me a question, and if I can't provide

the correct answer, I  will pay you $500.00."

Figuring it may keep  the lawyer quiet, the senior agrees to play

the game.

The lawyer asks the  first question "What's the distance from the

Earth to the  Moon?"

The senior reaches  into his pocket, pulls out a five dollar bill

and hands it to the  lawyer.

Now, it's the  senior's turn. He asks the lawyer, "What goes up a

hill with three legs,  and comes down with four?"

The lawyer uses his  laptop to search all references he can find

on the Internet. He  sends E-mails to all the smart friends he

knows; all to no  avail.





Page  11


After an hour of  searching, he finally

gives up.

He wakes the senior  and hands him $500.00. The senior pockets

the $500.00 and goes  right back to sleep.

The lawyer is going  nuts not knowing the answer. He wakes the

senior up and asks,  "Well, so what goes up a hill with three

legs and comes down  with four?"

The senior reaches  into his pocket, hands the lawyer five

dollars and goes back  to sleep.

Can too little sleep make you gain weight?

By Genevra Pittman

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - People who got very  little sleep ate more but didn't burn any extra calories in a new study that  adds to evidence supporting a link between sleep deprivation and weight gain.

Although the findings don't prove that  sleeplessness causes people to pack on extra pounds, or exactly how the  relationship between sleep and body weight might work, they do show that  "sleep should be a priority," said Michael Grandner, who studies  sleep and sleep disorders at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia.

"If you're making your diet a priority  and trying to be healthy, don't forget that getting healthy sleep is probably  an extremely important part of being healthy," Grandner, who was not  involved in the new work, told Reuters Health.

Previous studies have tested the link  between sleep and diet and weight in multiple ways, Grandner explained. Some  surveyed large populations of people with questions about their sleeping and  eating habits and tracked their future health conditions. Others, including  the new report, looked at a smaller group of people very closely,  manipulating their sleep schedule and observing how their food cravings and  appetite responded.

Both kinds of research have generally  supported the idea that less sleep is associated with more extra weight.

One recent study in Sweden found, for  example, that young men who were sleep-deprived ate about the same amount of  food as usual, but burned between 5 and 20 percent fewer calories than when  they were well-rested.                                      (See Reuters Health story of  May 13, 2011).

Approximately 50 to 70 million Americans --  including a significant number of shift workers -- suffer from chronic sleep  loss and sleep disorders, according to the National Institutes of Health.

For the current study, Marie-Pierre St-Onge  of the New York Obesity Research Center at St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital and  colleagues recruited thirty men and women in their 30's and 40's, all of  roughly normal weight. The participants lived and slept in a research center  during two different five-night periods.

During one of those visits, they were allowed  to sleep for nine hours each night. During the other, participants were only  permitted four hours of shut-eye. Both times, they were fed a strict diet for  the first four days of their stay and then were allowed to eat whatever they  wanted on the fifth and final full day.

Researchers tracked how much energy they  burned on a daily basis, and also asked participants how energetic they felt.

The tests showed that regardless of which  sleep schedule they were on, people burned a similar amount of calories -- about  2,600 per day.

But when they were sleep-deprived, they fed  themselves about 300 more calories on average on the final day of the study  compared to when they had been sleeping normally. Well-rested participants  ate an average of 2,500 calories that day, compared to 2,800 when they were  running on less sleep.

If that kept up in a person's normal daily  life, it would put the                          sleep-deprived at higher risk of  obesity, the authors write in the                  American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

Participants also said they felt more  sluggish and less energetic after a few days on the short sleep schedule.

There are a few possible explanations  behind the link between sleep and eating, researchers explained. One is that  shut-eye is important for the hormones that help control how much we eat.

Sleep "seems to play a role in how  your body manages the hormones that control how hungry you are, when you're  hungry (and) what kinds of foods you're hungry for," Grandner said.

Another explanation is that when we're  tired, we're less good at making healthy eating decisions.

"It's possible that when you're on  short sleep you're more susceptible to giving in to your desires,"  St-Onge told Reuters Health. "You walk past a (food) cart or a bakery and  it smells so good...If you're sleep-deprived you may be like,              'Oh, what the heck,'" she  said.

Grandner added that it's possible the link  goes both ways, and that eating too much of certain kinds of foods can  disrupt a person's sleep schedule. Or, someone that has a stressful job may  sleep too little and also eat too much as a result.

Too little sleep has also been tied to a  host of other health problems, he said, including heart disease and diabetes  -- which have their own associations with weight, complicating the picture  even further.

"People always want to say if you  sleep more you'll lose weight," St-Onge said. While her study didn't set  out to show whether that's the case, "if you're trying to control your  weight, it would be helpful not to be sleep-deprived," she concluded.

10 Things  Kids Can Do To Go Green and Reduce Environmental Impact

1)    Ask mom for  green school supplies. Going back to school and going green can go hand in  hand! Kids can get green school supplies that will make a difference at  prices that will make mom happy. Your green school supplies also provide an  opportunity to share your thoughts on the environment with other students and  teachers who notice that they are a little different.

**Want to take your green routine to the next level? Use a printing  company with solid green printing practices to produce your reports and  projects.**

 2) Walk, carpool, or take the bus to school. Less carbon emissions and less  smog comes from less burned fuel. We have to use gasoline to run most of  today's cars - so,  let's use as little of it as we can! When you share a ride with others, it  means fewer people have to use gas, and when you walk or bike there is no  fuel burned at all...except maybe your breakfast ;-)

 3) Turn off the water while showering and brushing teeth. Most people let the  water run while soaping up or brushing, but that wastes water. Run the water  to get your towel and body or toothbrush wet, and then wash or brush with the  water off. It saves water AND time because you end up focusing on getting  clean and getting out of there!

 4) Start an organic garden at school and create compost for it. It's a large  undertaking, but if you can get your science teacher behind you, it's very  likely that your principal will allow you to start an organic garden of some  kind and a compost heap to fertilize it. Learn about composting for kids  here, and get your science teacher to help you learn about gardening. You're  sure to get extra credit!

 5) Turn off lights and appliances/electronics when not in use. Kids who  aren't environmentally conscious don't usually think about turning off lights  and appliances because kids in general aren't cost conscious. That means kids  waste stuff. (Don't worry - your parents did it when they were kids, too.)  Kids who reduce, reuse, and recycle know that wastefulness is not good, and  one thing they do not waste is energy. Although cleaner energy is becoming  more common, no energy should be wasted. When you're not using lights or  appliances/electronics (TV, computer, video games,  etc.) TURN THEM OFF! Let mom and dad unplug them from the outlets as they see  fit for safety.

 6) If parents recycle, allow kids to sort. The family that recycles  together stays together! If mom and dad recycle, ask them if you can sort if  you already don't. Sometimes parents don't realize how much you care. Going  green is a lifestyle, so get in on the day-today activities by doing your  part. Kids in the UK can also ask mom and dad to use a house clearance  service that recycles waste materials when you move or when it's time to  clean out the garage.

 7) Volunteer with community organizations that plant trees. Trees help us  enjoy cleaner air and more beautiful landscapes. Get help finding  organizations where you live who plant trees, and then volunteer to help! The  Arbor Day Foundation is a good place to start if you need help locating a  group in your local area.

 8) Hand-wash dishes or only run the dishwasher for full loads. Most people  don't realize it, but dishwashers use considerably more water to wash a load  of dishes than the traditional sink method does. A LOT MORE. So, to conserve  water, it's best not to use the dishwasher at all. If you do, use  eco-friendly dishwashing detergent and only run the washer when it is  completely full. If it's not full or if you can, choose to wash dishes in the  sink instead, of course, with eco-friendly dishwashing liquid.

 9) Reduce waste by curbing use of disposables. It's easy to use throwaway  cups, plates, wrappers, and utensils, but it only creates more waste for  landfills. Also, disposable paper products like facial and bathroom tissue  and paper towels and napkins also end up in the trash. We can save more trees  by using less paper products, and we can keep more plastics and styrofoam out  of the landfills by using less throwaway utensils and containers. Also,  eating less often at fast-food restaurants cuts down on your useage of these  items, too.

 When you have to use them, use less. When you don't have to use them, DON'T.

 10) Ease up on the video games. Playing video cames on both computers and systems  uses a LOT of energy! That's why your system or computer feels hot  afterwards! You can save on energy by simply doing homework or going outside  to play instead of posting up in front of the TV or computer screen. This  activity uses more electricity than regular TV or computer useage, so it  should be kept to a minimum.

SpotLight On Our Efforts


Daddy UniverseCity is dedicated to helping  all fathers appreciate themselves and the responsibility of fatherhood. We  cater to soon to be fathers, new fathers, existing fathers, and second time  parents. As Fathers we find ourselves in a strange situation, sometimes not  knowing what is right, what is best, or what to say. But we are always,  always looked to as leaders. In this situation, we must band together to help  one another with the greatest responsibility of all, the rise or demise of  the next generation.

Our goal is simply, to heal the world one  father and child at a time. Our plan is to use all available resources to  create a one-stop site for fatherhood. By helping them understand the  importance their role has on the future of children throughout the world. We  can bring them closer to their families through educating them on pregnancy,  maternity, child bearing, and quality time which will help produce a strong  minded, loved, and whole child. Where leaders come to learn!

Daddy UniverseCity will help fathers deal  with any obstacle. With our information and product line, we will aid them in  understanding a father’s role and how important it is to the world. May it be  child rearing, family involvement, problems with mother, or just plain want  to vent. We will be here. We have bonded together to help one another realize  the dream of fatherhood. Being a father means, walking in the park hand in  hand, teaching a child how to fish, watching their eyes light up when a train  goes by. These are the things that make us, that complete us. But the road is  uneven, and sometimes unfair, we will be that safe passage.

Q: Are these manufacturer coupons or  coupons that I print on my computer?

A:  All of our coupons are actual manufacturer coupons. Fewer and fewer retailers  accept coupons that are printed from your computer because of a huge increase  in counterfeit coupons. Actual manufacturer coupons which we issue are  accepted everywhere that coupons are accepted.

Q:  Can these coupons be doubled?
 A: Yes. These are manufacturer issued coupons and may be doubled in any store  that offers double coupons.

Q:  What are the face values and the expiration dates of these coupons?
 A: Being manufacturer coupons, the manufacturer determines the face values of  the coupons. We currently stock coupons ranging in value from 40 cents to  5.00 dollars. The coupon expiration dates are generally valid for 90 days.

Q:  How can I use $1,000.00 worth of coupons in 90 days?
 A: With our program, you get to choose the coupons you want, when you want  them. This way you never have to worry about the coupons expiring.

Q: How do I choose the coupons  I want?
 A: Each coupon book contains coupon request slips which you fill out and send  in. Those coupons are then mailed to you.                                           ----- Coalition  members! Activate ‘Your’web link on The Coalition,  Inc. web site -----
