NET PLACEPeople love to joke about how addicting the online world can be, but for one hospital in Pennsylvania, overuse of the Internet is no laughing matter.

At the Bradford Regional Medical Center, mental health professionals have just started the nation’s first treatment program for Internet addiction.

Scheduled to open on September 9, the inpatient program will be run by specialists who have worked with individuals struggling with other addictions, like drugs and alcohol.

“[Internet addiction] is a problem in this country that can be more pervasive than alcoholism,” Dr. Kimberly Young, the psychologist who founded the treatment program, told Fox News. “The Internet is free, legal and fat free.”

The program is designed for those who describe their lives as spiraling out of control because of their obsession with online activities.

The high-tech structure’s roof then locks so water and wind can’t enter. Once the weather clears, the house unfolds and residents resume normal life.  :: Read more

With smoking zones shrinking more and more in public spaces, poor puffers get just the ground to stand in this smoking alley in a Hotel. They can’t even raise heir heads to blow off the smoke, all for the roving eyes from the roof top. The artist paints with his hands, what he sees in his heart.  The artist here sees no wall, but a passage right through it. – – Read more,,

Looks like ‘Carrot Top’ has found ‘Joan Rivers’ surgeon ..! YIKES SS.

What is up with this Face Job? Some celebrities really need to leave ‘the Knife’, ALONE. Hollywood has got the whole world thinking that ‘Plastic Surgery‘ is really a self-esteem issue. This is just an excuse to convince oneself that “there NOT really vein, in spite of the cars, the houses and the wardrobe”. It All BS! Handing a Surgeon $10,000 bucks to slice & dice your face is just plain old, Crazy and most times, NOT VERY PRETTY. Carving one’s face into a oblivion simply means you’ve run out of things to do in your Life and You need a Hobby. This has nothing to do with a persons insecurities. It merely means that this person has developed a narcissistic way of solving their personal issues .

Please people, understand that “…you cannot improve on what you look like with a knife. Knives leave scars”. If you wanna improve on how you look, start from the inside out. I guarantee You that even though it might not change what You see in the mirror, you sure as Hellwill Feel a whole lot better physically, emotionally and spiritually. Then, after accomplishing that,  it won’t matter to You what anybody thinks about how you look cause you’ll be too busy feeling good about YOU. I am not Judging mind you, just offering some alternatives to those in need. — Photo ©ourtesy of  Jayne County

Your power versus ‘The Power’

Calment was born in Arles in 1875.[1] Her father, Nicolas, was a shipbuilder, and her mother, Marguerite, was from a family of millers. Her close family members also lived to an advanced age: her older brother, François, lived to the age of 97, her father to 93, and her mother to 86. Calment claimed to have met Vincent van Gogh.[4][5] In 1896, at the age of 21, she married her second cousin (grandson of her great-uncle) Fernand Calment,[3] a wealthy store owner. His wealth made it possible for Jeanne never to have to work; instead she led a leisured lifestyle, pursuing hobbies such as tennis, cycling, swimming, rollerskating, piano and opera.[1] Her husband died in 1942 at the age of around 73 or 74 after eating a dessert prepared with spoiled cherries.[6] Their only child, a daughter named Yvonne, was born in 1898 and produced a grandson, Frédéric, born in 1926.[3] Calment outlived Yvonne, who died at age 36 in 1934 from pneumonia.[7] Frédéric became a doctor, and she outlived him as well, as he died in an automobile accident in 1960.[1] In 1965, aged 90 years and with no heirs, Calment signed a deal to sell her former apartment to lawyer André-François Raffray, on a contingency contract. Raffray, then aged 47 years, agreed to pay her a monthly sum of 2,500 francs until she died. Raffray ended up paying Calment the equivalent of more than $180,000, which was more than double the apartment's value. After Raffray's death from cancer at the age of 77, in 1995, his widow continued the payments until Calment's death.This Story, bar none, is one of my favorite all time examples of how God’s wit far surpasses people’s  deviant ways. The Powers which Rules our Universe are absolutely the ‘Best’ stand-up Comediennes. Check this out!

In 1965, without any steady income and at age 90 years and, with no heirs, Mme. Jeanne Calment was forced to sign a deal to sell her apartment she lived in for decades, to lawyer André-François Raffray, based on a sort ofReverse Mortgage‘. The agreement was contingency based and devised by Monsieur Raffray. Mr. Raffray, then aged 47 years, agreed to pay Mme. Calment, a monthly sum of 2,500 francs until Mme. Calment’s death. Raffray figured on Mme. Calment, maybe having a few years left to live. But, as fate would have it, Raffray ended up paying Calment the equivalent of more than $180,000, which was more than double the apartment’s value. After Raffray’s death from cancer at the age of 77, in 1995, his widow continued the payments of Mme. Calment’s Agreement with her Husband until the Death of Mme. Calment, at the tender age of 122 years old in 1997.  Hummm …!
