    This is a peaceful idyllic movie that Mr. Guru-Murthy ( the morally superior slayer of Quentin Tarantino) was in.

    The little hypocrite has broad TV experience as well.
    Along with game shows he also hosted “The 100 Greatest Musicals” and “Going Cold Turkey”. Yep… nothing more entertaining than a crack-ho and a bowl of fruit.

    At college, he read (couldn’t find anything about him actually graduating) Philosophy and Poli Sci (that along with Psych and Sociology are gut courses) and Economics, which is seemingly the only actual problem solving class he had.

    I guess telling the Truth, other than “Max’s truth” is not a strong point.

    Americans Are in Worse Health Than Other Nationalities

    The U.S. may be one of the wealthiest countries in the world, but it certainly isn’t the healthiest, according to a new report from the National Research Council and the Institute of Medicine.

    The report, released today, compared the U.S. with 16 other high-income democracies, including Australia, Canada, Japan, and many western European countries. It found, on average, that Americans die sooner and experience higher rates of disease and injury than people in other countries. The report is the first look at multiple diseases, injuries and behaviors across the entire human life span.

    “Americans are dying and suffering at rates that we know are unnecessary because people in other high-income countries are living longer lives and enjoying better health,” said Steven H. Woolf, professor of family medicine at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond and chair of the panel that wrote the report. “What concerns our panel is why, for decades, we have been slipping behind.”

    The U.S. may be one of the wealthiest countries in the world, but it certainly isn’t the healthiest, according to a new report from the National Research Council and the Institute of Medicine.

    The report, released today, compared the U.S. with 16 other high-income democracies, including Australia, Canada, Japan, and many western European countries. It found, on average, that Americans die sooner and experience higher rates of disease and injury than people in other countries. The report is the first look at multiple diseases, injuries and behaviors across the entire human life span.

    “Americans are dying and suffering at rates that we know are unnecessary because people in other high-income countries are living longer lives and enjoying better health,” said Steven H. Woolf, professor of family medicine at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond and chair of the panel that wrote the report. “What concerns our panel is why, for decades, we have been slipping behind.”

    The panel also found that health problems exist among Americans regardless of age and that even Americans with certain advantages, such as higher incomes, a college education and health insurance, are sicker than people in other rich nations.

    Some of the key areas of health in which the U.S. fared poorly included infant mortality and low birth weight, injuries and homicides, teen pregnancies, sexually transmitted diseases, obesity, diabetes and heart disease.

    Many of these health conditions disproportionately affect children and adolescents, the report found. For decades, the U.S. has had the highest infant mortality rate of any high-income country, and it also ranks poorly in measures of premature birth rates and the proportion of children who live until age 5.

    According to the report, American teens have higher rates of death from car accidents and homicide and the highest rates of teen pregnancy. What’s more, they are more likely to acquire sexually transmitted infections than their counterparts in other high-income countries.

    The findings build on a 2011 National Research Council report that showed a growing mortality gap among Americans over age 50.

    “It’s a tragedy,” Woolf said. “Our report found that an equally large, if not larger, disadvantage exists among younger Americans. I don’t think most parents know that, on average, infants, children, and adolescents in the U.S. die younger and have greater rates of illness and injury than youth in other countries.”

    But some experts, including Dr. Marc Roberts, who specializes in political economy and global health at Harvard University School of Public Health, said the report’s findings were “old news.”

    STAND AND FIGHT – OR KNEEL FOREVER.

    Taking the personal private property of gun owners is okay with you, but you see, communists don’t allow private property… not even a special person like YOU.

    I have been finding that in the last couple of months more people are starting to join the local fitness center that I belong to and they run the gamut of young to old and lately I have seen more mother and daughter/father and son combos working out.
