Vaccines and Scientific
Studies, Do your research It's YOUR choice!!!
Vaccine Institute We offer an extensive selection of uncensored
information on childhood shots and other immunizations. Because this is
such an important topic, we believe that parents are entitled to a full
disclosure of all pertinent data and the freedom to choose whether or
not to vaccinate their children.
MedScape has an article about how Immunization is among the most
successful and cost-effective public health interventions.[1,2]
Immunization programs have led to eradication of smallpox, elimination
of measles and poliomyelitis in regions of the world
is the preeminent journal that serves as an interface between academics,
scientists, researchers, medical practitioners, and concerned patients
and parents. Relevant topics range from basic research, general medical
practice, vaccines, treatments, bias and other conflicts of interest in
research, to immunology, vaccine injury, and infectious diseases.
Organization The World Health Organization is the United Nations
specialized agency for health. It was established on 7 April 1948. WHO's
objective, as set out in its Constitution, is the attainment by all
peoples of the highest possible level of health. Health is defined in
WHO's Constitution as a state of complete physical, mental and social
well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.
Petit Jean Electric
Cooperative Members address Board of Directors; Gozarks
announces new editor-in-chief!!!
For the full scoop
on each of these significant announcements, please
is a very big topic in the world today, here in our community and
everywhere! Young people like myself are always looking for ways to help
out the environment. I learned most all of my good habits from my mom.
Recycle, reduce, reuse is a common everyday acquaintance in our
household and in our life.
We have recently been interested in our
local Electric Cooperative Petit Jean, I have come up with a question
"How are young or new minds going to be able to learn what’s going on
and take over in our community and bring us into a more energy efficient
way of life if the Petit Jean Electric Cooperative board of directors
will not allow anyone to be present at regular meetings?"
For a detailed letter to the editor about our encounter with this please
take a look here.
Turn off anything electric that you are
not using! All lights, fans, VCRs, televisions, stereos, computers, and
kitchen appliances... it really helps just to turn it off:)
Some energy saving tips from
www.energy.gov go take a look
- Consider using high-intensity
discharge (also called HID) or low-pressure sodium lights.
- Exterior lighting is one of the best
places to use CFLs because of their long life. If you live in a cold
climate, be sure to buy a lamp with a cold weather ballast since
standard CFLs may not work well below 40°F.
- Turn off decorative outdoor natural
gas lamps; just eight such lamps burning year-round use as much
natural gas as it takes to heat an average-size home during an entire
winter. Use outdoor lights with a photocell unit or a motion sensor so
they will turn on only at night or when someone is present. A combined
photocell and motion sensor will increase your energy savings even
- Consider using 4-watt minifluorescent
or electro-luminescent night lights. Both lights are much more
efficient than their incandescent counterparts. The luminescent lights
are cool to the touch.
- If you have torchiere fixtures with
halogen lamps, consider replacing them with compact fluorescent
torchieres. Compact fluorescent torchieres use 60% to 80% less energy,
can produce more light (lumens), and do not get as hot as the halogen
torchieres. Halogen torchieres are a fire risk because of the high
temperature of the halogen bulb.
- Take advantage of daylight by using
light-colored, loose-weave curtains on your windows to allow daylight
to penetrate the room while preserving privacy. Also, decorate with
lighter colors that reflect daylight.
Excess energy use happens ever day in
most appliances that use electricity, such as VCRs, televisions,
stereos, computers, and kitchen appliances. In the average home, 75% of
the electricity used to power home electronics is consumed while the
products are turned off. This can be avoided by unplugging the appliance
or using a power strip and using the switch on the power strip to cut
all power to the appliance.
Plug home electronics, such as TVs and DVD
players, into power strips; turn the power strips off when the equipment
is not in use (TVs and DVDs in standby mode still use several watts of
power). Turn off your computer and monitor when not in use. Air dry
dishes instead of using your dishwasher's drying cycle. When shopping
for a new clothes dryer, look for one with a moisture sensor that
automatically shuts off the machine when your clothes are dry. Not only
will this save energy, it will save wear and tear on your clothes caused
by over-drying. Consider air-drying clothes on clothes lines or drying
racks. Air-drying is recommended by clothing manufacturers for some
Saving energy starts with being an informed
consumer. Estimate an appliance's individual annual energy cost
using this guide.
