For softer, shinier hair, soak two bags of chamomile tea in two cups of water, and use this as a final rinse when you wash your hair. This also gives your hair a much nicer scent than most shampoos.

Sacramento same-sex weddings mostly female

SACRAMENTO (UPI) -- A tally of marriage licenses issued in Sacramento County indicates more female same-sex couples are getting married than males.

The Sacramento Bee took an informal tally of the paperwork this week and determined tha, as of Friday, 60 percent of the same-sex couples getting married in the county were lesbian while 40 percent were male couples.

"Women want to be married more than men do," said Gary Gates, a demographer at the UCLA law school. "The idea of partnering is more attractive to women."

Gates said statistics nationwide showed that female couples in "committed" relationships outnumbered male couples by a 2-1 margin.

On the other hand, Gates said, lesbian relationships tended not to last as long on average as those between gay men.

The Bee said that of the 170 couples that applied for marriage licenses in Sacramento County this week, 133 were homosexual based on the first names of the applicants.

Joke Time!!

Single-Minded
A man goes to a psychologist and says, "Doc I got a real problem, I can't stop thinking about relations."

The psychologist says, "Well let's see what we can find out", and pulls out his ink blots. "What is this a picture of?" he asks.

The man turns the picture upside down then turns it around and states, "That's a man and a woman having relations."

The psychologist says, "Very interesting," and shows the next picture. "And what is this a picture of?"

The man looks and turns it in different directions and says, "That's a man and a woman having relations."

The psychologists tries again with the third ink blot, and asks the same question, "What is this a picture of?"

The patient again turns it in all directions and replies, "That's a man and a woman having relations."

The psychologist states, "Well, yes, you do seem to be obsessed with relations."

"Me!?" demands the patient. "You're the one who keeps showing me the dirty pictures!"

Scientists ID new Alzheimer's disease gene

MANHASSET, N.Y. (UPI) -- U.S. medical scientists say they have identified a gene that puts people at risk for developing Alzheimer's disease.

Philippe Marambaud of the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research and Fabien Campagne of the Weill Medical College at Cornell University said the calcium channel modulator gene holds promise as a potentially new way to treat or even prevent Alzheimer's disease.

They said they found the risk gene called CALHM1 strongly expressed in the hippocampus -- a brain region necessary for learning and memory. The researchers said CALHM1 leads to a partial loss of function, which means less calcium gets into a cell, thereby weakening signals normally regulated by calcium. They determined one of those signals controls the levels of amyloid peptides, the building blocks of the characteristic disease plaques.

Using DNA from deceased U.S. Alzheimer's victims and age-matched controls, along with DNA samples from patients in France, Italy and the United Kingdom, the researchers ran tests on 3,404 samples. They discovered people having the genetic variant had 1.5 times higher risk of developing Alzheimer's.

The study that included French researcher Jean Charles Lambert is detailed in the journal Cell.

Car Insurance Rates

Owning a car would also means, you need to have an insurance for it. In USA, as well as in Germany, it is a must having insurance when you own a car. I remember in 2006 when I first bought a new car in Germany, in which the transportation office required insurance papers or confirmation that you must have an insurance before you can register your car. I believed, it is the same here in USA.

There are lots of auto insurance companies that provide insurance protection for your car. Depending on what type of car you have or even the size and age of your car will determine how much insurance you have to pay for it.

I would suggest that before you buy a car, you must also think how much it cost for you in the future like how much insurance you must pay for it. Another thing to consider is the cost of gasoline that it consume especially now that gas prices are getting so high.

With regards to insurance for your car, I would like to refer to you Car Insurance Rates. It is a company that sells not only car insurances but also provides you with useful tips and information on how you can save insurance for you car.

Lowest Possible Insurance Rate

Some people don't believe in Insurance especially the so-called Life Insurance. They are afraid that they might be killed and somebody will benefit the proceeds of the Life Insurance.

If you have to ask me with regards to the above matter, I would honestly say to you, that 'I do believed'. Sometimes we just don't know what will happen in the future especially if it is emergency. I believed that we must always be ready of whatever circumstances that might happen to save us from problems and predicaments.

There are different kinds of insurances ranging from auto, home, health, life and a lot more. In Germany, it is a must that all individuals have health insurance. If a jobless person cannot afford to pay one, it is the government with its social system who will pay for it.

USA has a different system. Not all people have insurances especially life and health which I believed to be the most important ones. Well, I guess it is because, insurances here are also very expensive. Now, you don't have to worry anymore, at Insurance Rate, you can have the lowest possible insurance quotes in the nation. Different insurance companies are listed in insurancerate.com, so you can choose the insurance that best fit your needs.

Joke Time

Sound of Drums

A researcher arrives in Borneo to gather data for his thesis. Accompanied by his trusty guide, he seeks out a very remote locale for researching the mating behaviour of the giant rat of Sumatra.

Around dusk of the first day, he's sitting by the campfire with his guide when in the distance, he hears tribal drums. They get louder. The guide announces, "I don't like the sound of those drums."

The dusk turns evening. The drums get louder. The guide says, "I really don't like the sound of those drums."

Evening turns to dead of night. The drums get louder and louder, until it is obvious that the drummers must be quite close. The guide says again, "I really don't like the sound of those drums."

Suddenly the drums stop, and a voice from the darkness cries out, "Hey man, he's not our regular drummer!"

Cash Advance Before Payday Comes!

Having problems before payday comes is sometimes very stressful. When you have a mortgages to pay, insurances or any other kind of bills to pay before payday comes and you don't have the money right in your hands is not an easy situation.

The worse thing to happen is when you don't have somebody to ask for help like your friends, co-workers or even family. Other reason is that, you are also ashame and don't have the guts to ask help from them. I had to admit this because it also happened to me before.

With this kind of situation you have, I believed is not a problem anymore. There is a company that can lend a helping hand to this kind of problem. Pay Everyone offers loan til payday.

I just talked to a friend tonight here in Las Vegas. She told me that she have difficulty in going to work because she don't have driver's license and of course a car too. It is also very difficult for her because she have a shift work in a hotel being a Supervisor. Her husband who always bring her to work have problems sometimes because he also have a shift work. She even need to call her mother-in-law and even co-workers to ask for a ride. She said that it is sometimes very shameful to always ask for favors.

Some people's problem is whether to buy a car or not. It is maybe because they don't have enough money to purchase a car. It is not really a big problem. Get The Best Auto Loan is the solution. They help you search for the best car loan rate when you want to purchase your own car.

Studies are showing that green leafy vegetables like spinach, kale and collards are beneficial to your body's ability to keep itself healthy. The high amounts of vitamin E in each help fight chemicals produced by the body that can damage cells. But any kind of vegetable is helpful -- people who eat more than two servings of vegetables per day have been shown to age less visibly over time!

No Debt Today

A lot of people now are experiencing economic and financial problems. In USA alone, millions of Americans suffered because of bad economic situation. I even heard that with this ongoing crisis and depression, there are thousands of forclosures happening from time to time. Even my cousin told me that the gaming and entertainment industry here in Las Vegas had a decrease of $1 billion in revenues for the past months.

I guess, one reason why these things are happening is that, Americans have too much credit and debt. I also heard from newly found friends here in Las Vegas that lots of people really suffered from this crisis. It really don't sound good.

If you are experiencing problems on how to manage your debt, I believed it is not a problem anymore. Nowadays there are companies or businesses that can offer you help.

Would you eat chocolate with insects in it?

You may not have a choice, as the average chocolate bar in the U.S. contains at least 8 pieces of an insect in it. Harvesting of the cacao beans occurs in the tropical countries of South America with low sanitation levels.

Cacao tree beans are cut and piled in the farmer's field where they ferment for 6 days. During this process, children and adults walk over the piles; insects, rodents, small animals and other living things that make their nests in the piles. Actually the The U. S. Department of Health publishes a book entitled "The Food Defect Action Levels" in which they list unavoidable defects in food (insect, rodents etc.) all allowed by FDA.

Union: Gender imbalance in Defense Dept.

OTTAWA (UPI) -- A Canadian union has called for more women in Defense Department emergency response units after women were stripped and washed by male responders.

The Union of National Defense Employees wants a mandate to employ more women in the hazardous materials and security units following an anthrax scare last year at a military base in Quebec, in which an all-male team took off female employees clothing and scrubbed them through the decontamination process, the Ottawa Citizen reported.

Union President John MacLennan told the newspaper there are only seven female emergency responders in the Defense Department across the country.

"You have to have a hazardous response team that represents gender, male and female," he said.

Defense Department spokeswoman Lynne Rattray told the newspaper in an e-mail the incident is being overblown by the union.

"In this particular case, all personnel present were informed of what was involved in the decontamination process, and voluntarily complied," she wrote.

U.S. tomato warning expanded nationwide

WASHINGTON (UPI) -- Many U.S. restaurants have removed dishes containing raw tomatoes from their menus in the wake of a nationwide federal warning.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration during the weekend expanded its warning that a salmonellosis outbreak has been linked with consumption of certain uncooked red plum, red Roma and red round tomatoes, as well as products containing such tomatoes.

The FDA said consumers can continue to eat cherry tomatoes, grape tomatoes and tomatoes sold with the vine still attached, or tomatoes grown at home.

"Since mid-April, there have been 145 reported cases of salmonellosis caused by Salmonella Saintpaul nationwide, including at least 23 hospitalizations," the FDA said in a statement. "States reporting illnesses linked to the outbreak include: Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin."

Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections.

Easy Shopping Thru Credit Cards

I'm still in Las Vegas enjoying my vacation. I still have almost a month remaining to enjoy it. Of course, vacation without shopping is not exciting especially for women including me. There are a lot of shopping malls here in Las Vegas. I had already been to the different shopping centers here.

The only bad thing is that, I don't have a credit card to use for shopping. Nowadays, using cards for shopping is already indispensable. Besides that it is also safe, easy and very convenient, you also don't need to carry cash anymore which is sometimes dangerous.

Everytime, we go shopping here in Vegas whether in a department store, groceries, restaurants and anywhere, most people I see just swipe their cards for payments. That sounds not fair to me!!! I guess, I need to have one too.

While browsing the net, my mouse clicked creditcardflyers.com. It is a leading source of credit cards offers and they also offers online reviews for credit cards. They accept Credit card applications for all types of credit cards that best fit your needs.

Australian women over-dieting, says survey

MELBOURNE (UPI) -- A survey suggests that Australian women are going to extreme and even unhealthy lengths to try to lose weight.

Fortune magazine polled 1,000 Australian women aged between 18 and 35 and found that 56 percent had used diet pills, while 88 percent regularly skip meals and 17 percent go for more than a day without eating in order to lose weight. Another 15 percent admitted to being anorexic or vomiting after eating.

Eating Disorder Foundation founder Amanda Jordan said the survey reflected national research.

"This really highlights the absolute tyranny of image and how women are being seduced into dangerous and unhelpful behavior," she told the Melbourne Sun-Herald, suggesting that magazines such as Fortune were partly to blame for their images of overly-thin women as ideals.

"If you're going to blame magazines, then you are also going to have to blame TV, Internet and advertising. Everyone carries the same stories," said executive editor, Ali Wick.

Great site for Summer Gears!

I just came back from adventure and fun in Disneyland and Universal Studio in California. Together with my cousin's family, my sister and a friend, we had lots of fun and excitement there. That was a very memorable experience for me going there for the first time.

I just forget some stuff to bring with me. Well I forgot to buy a binocular especially that I need it in Universal Studio. It is a very huge place and by just looking with your bear eyes, you don't see all your surroundings.

I just browsed OpticsPlanet. I believed it is a great site for searching summer gears. You have everything you need from astronomy, eyewear, hunting, military gear, outdoor gear, sport and many many more. I just got interested about their Laser Sights. I guess, I found a great deal about Streamlight Twin-Task 3C Laser Gun Metal Gray Flashlight with a very reasonable price of $29.89.

Men to 'protest' 'Sex...City' pink drinks

TORONTO (UPI) -- Mock protests against "pink drinks" organized by a distiller and brewer are scheduled in Toronto for Friday's premiere of "Sex and the City."

The maker of Canadian Club whiskey announced Thursday seven mock rallies will be in the city to mark the premiere with organizers leading chants such as "Hey hey ho ho pink drinks have got to go!"

A release said the spoofs are "to protest the rise of the pink, girlie cocktail and the demise of the masculine cocktail" in the movie about four women in New York.

Meanwhile, a survey of 500 Canadian men by Moosehead Lager found 36 percent will be watching a hockey game and drinking beer rather than attending the film's debut. Another 28 percent said they would be walking the dog Friday night, a release said.

Regardless, at least 35 percent of the men polled had advance knowledge of the movie. Asked which of the four women was the "hottest," 11 percent named Samantha, followed closely by Charlotte with 10 percent. The Carrie character scored 7 percent and Miranda was fourth with 4 percent.

Among the men, Mr. Big scored 2 percent as the hottest, the release said.

Scientists find 'nervous wreck' gene

Scientists find 'nervous wreck' gene
MADISON, Wis. (UPI) -- U.S. scientists announced the discovery of a gene they call "nervous wreck" that is essential to the proper development of nerve cells in the fruit fly.

The gene governs the size of a synapse -- the junction between nerve cell endings. University of Wisconsin scientists said the gene prevents synapses from overgrowing by damping the effects of a pro-growth signal. Mutations in a human version of the "nervous wreck" gene have been linked to a severe genetic developmental disability

The 100 billion nerve cells in the human make trillions of synaptic connections to neurons, muscle cells and other cell types. Malfunctions at synapses are believed to be among the many factors leading to various neurological disorders.

Kate O'Connor-Giles, a postdoctoral fellow who led the study, said, "We really need to have a deep understanding of how all the factors involved are working together to develop rational treatments for neurological disorders associated with aberrant synaptic growth."

The researchers say their findings might speed the development of treatments for neurological disorders.

The study appears in the journal Neuron.

It's joke Time again

Crazy People

The Queen visits a mental hospital and goes to the first ward. The first patient she sees is sitting up and with his left hand he seems to be grabbing something from the air. She asks, "What are you doing?"

The patient replies, "I'm taking the stars from the sky!"

She then proceeds over to the second patient and he seems to be inserting something into the air. She asks, "What are you doing love?"

The second patient replies, "I'm putting the stars back in the sky!"

Finally she reaches the third patient and he's sitting up pretending he's a rally driver and is making high speed noises. She asks him, "What the heck are you up to?"

The patient replies, "I'm trying to get away from these two nutters, they're absolutely mental!"

Police officer breastfeeds quake orphans

JIANGYOU, China (UPI) -- A Chinese police officer, who is the mother of a baby, has become a national heroine for breastfeeding infants separated from their mothers by the earthquake.

Jiang Xiaojuan continues to feed two babies for women whose milk stopped from the trauma of the earthquake or the physical difficulties immediately afterwards, CNN reported. At her busiest, she was feeding nine.

"I am breastfeeding, so I can feed babies," she said. "I didn't think of it much. It is a mother's reaction and a basic duty as a police officer to help."

One newspaper hailed her as "China's Mother No. 1." But she says everyone in the quake zone tried to do what they could to help those who were injured, orphaned or left homeless.

The official death toll for the May 12 7.9-magnitude earthquake is 51,000 with about 29,000 people missing. Thousands of children are believed to have been orphaned.

Jiang's own son is being cared for by his grandparents while the earthquake emergency lasts.

I am happy to see my sister and relatives here like my two cousins whom I didn't meet for I guess 20 years. Blood is always thicker than water. Even though I have not met them for these long years but still, the memories that I had with them since I was still a kid is still always there.



I am very happy to see them here especially to see spend time with them together. I had so much fun here in Las Vegas especially if I go with my cousin Ann who is a singer/entertainer here in Vegas. They are very accomodating and good people.

How did Claudius become emperor?

Claudius was the fourth Roman Emperor of the Julio-Claudian dynasty, ruling from January 24, 41 to his death in 54. The first Roman Emperor to be born outside Italy, he was considered a rather unlikely man to become emperor. as he was reportedly afflicted with some type of disability.

However, this infirmity may have saved him from the fate of many other Roman nobles during the purges of Tiberius and Caligula's reigns. His very survival led to his being declared emperor after Caligula's assassination, at which point he was the last adult male of his family. Despite his lack of political experience, Claudius proved to be an able administrator and a great builder of public works. His reign saw an expansion of the empire, including the conquest of Britain.

Big Secret

In the 1970's, before women were allowed to sign up for combat duty, a man was bragging to his friends about how his sister disguised herself as a man and was able to join the army.

"But, wait a minute," said one listener, "She'll have to dress with the boys and shower with them too. Won't she?"

"Sure," replied the man.

"Well, won't they find out?" asked his friend.

The man shrugged and replied, "But who will tell?"

Where were the Xanadu houses?

The Xanadu Houses were a series of experimental houses built to showcase computers and automation in the home. The architectural project began in 1979, and during the early 1980s three houses were built in Kissimmee, Florida, Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin, and Gatlinburg, Tennessee in the United States.

The houses were notable for being built with polyurethane insulation foam rather than concrete, for easy, fast, and cost-effective construction, as well as for being ergonomically designed, containing some of the earliest home automation systems. The last of the houses were closed and demolished in 2005.

Study: Oregano oil works as an insecticide

ALGIERS, Algeria (UPI) -- Algerian scientists say they've found oregano oil works as well as synthetic insecticides to combat infestation by a common beetle found in stored cereals.

The researchers say not only does oregano oil work well in fighting infestations of the beetle Rhizoppertha dominica, but it has none of the associated side effects of synthetic insecticides on the environment.

Oregano, a member of the Lamiaceae family of plants, has been known to be a natural insecticide by apparently inhibiting egg laying and larval development. But the researchers said their study marks the first time oregano oil has been looked at as a viable alternative to synthetic insecticides.

Chahrazed Boutekedjiret and colleagues from Algeria's National Polytechnic School identified 18 components in oregano oil that combat pests and found the greater the concentration of the oil used, the more effective it was.

"It is feasible that, in the near future, these natural insecticides will replace synthetic insecticides and add considerably to more environmentally friendly insecticides on a large scale," said Boutekedjiret.

The findings are reported in the Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture.
