Xenophobia is alive and well. It's hatred and/or fear of foreigners. Ever hear people talk about how 'they're taking our job' or 'they're ruining our economy’? "They" are the outsiders, the scapegoats on whom the blame rests for all the mistakes and all entire downfall of a society. For the Nazis it was the Jews, for Germans today it’s the Turks, for the Italians it's the Albanians, for the Russians it's the immigrants of the poor, former Soviet republics, and for us… it's "illegal immigration." Although seemingly a general term, most Americans when presented with the term "illegal immigration" (or just "illegal") think of Latin Americans.

Which Sleep Position is Best?
By Craig Banks, DC, CCSP®
As fitness enthusiasts, even with the crazy, fast-paced lifestyle that we all lead, we spend a decent amount of time sleeping. If we want to make the most of our training, quality sleep is an absolute necessity. As a chiropractor, I frequently get asked about the best position for sleeping.
February 17, 2014. Today is my 46th Birthday. I still feel like I’m 23 years old, yet when I look in the mirror I see a much older version of myself. When I raise up my arms, I feel severe shoulder pain; when I take a step to walk, my right quad is stiff and painful. This might depress some people. But I ascribe to Andre Maurois’ outlook on aging: “Growing old is no more than a bad habit which a busy person has no time to form.”
