It is only eleven months until the 2nd Global Conference on Health & Lifestyle will be held in Geneva, Switzerland. The theme of this conference is very timely and one of significant focus in the public health world. Many who attended the 2009 Conference have reported their experience and learning greatly strengthened their work.

Sadly, after more than a week of being missing in Kiev, Dr. Jay Sloop has not been found. The Sloop family is requesting that those who choose could fast and pray that this mystery can be solved. All that possibly can be done humanly is being done. Only God knows, and members of His family around the world are earnestly seeking His will.
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration reports that emergency department visits involving the drug ecstacy rose from 4,460 admissions in 2005 to 10,176 in 2011. As a street drug, ecstacy has been found to be mixed with methamphetamine, ephedrine, cocaine, and caffeine which users may not be aware of when using. Dangerous symptoms may include heart failure, anxiety, confusion, and kidney failure.
PositiveTip: Use of ecstasy can be deadly. Encourage young people (and older) to avoid it.
