Houston, Texas, January 2012 — Johnson Consortium LLC has announced the launch of SexyEatz, the world's first social networking site dedicated solely to the culinary arts.

We’re told it's a unique way for cooks all over the world to connect with others who share their passion for food, according to founder and CEO Eric Johnson.

 If the name "SexyEatz" brings to mind certain memorable movie scenes, such as the picnic interlude in the 1963 classic film Tom Jones, the spoon-feeding scene in 1986's 9 ½ Weeks, or any number of scenes in more recent flicks such as Chocolat or Woman on Top, then it's time to expand your definition of "sexy."

Granted, the relationship between food and eroticism has been a recurring theme not only in the movies, but also in books, art, and advertising. But erotica is not what SexyEatz is about. Rather, this new site is more like a Facebook for foodies, a Google+ for gastronomes, a LinkedIn for lovers of the culinary arts.  www.SexyEatz.com

Looking Back III
Health
Thursday, 05 January 2012 20:04
January 2012 – Over the past two years around this time, your editors have made mention of what it was like in the 1930’s and how much worse it was than what we’ve had to endure since 2007 – about the time things began looking bad.

This is Part III.

We mentioned earlier about how some special people came from that experience – leaders who helped Americans find an inner strength, which was later paid back as the U.S. rose in power and influence throughout the world.
We also pointed out that as a group, back then we were used to doing more with less, were more loyal, and in some cases easier to convince then as now. That, and the fact that folks back then didn’t have to contend with 24/7 in-your-face news coverage. In many ways, this technological phenomenon has created everything from false hopes to misunderstanding to confusion.

Wizard of Menlo Park Revisited

Everywhere, USA, January 2012— Indeed, January of this year marks the beginning of a planned phase-out of inefficient light bulbs in the United States that was signed into law five years ago by President George W. Bush.

It was designed to reduce energy usage from lighting up things nationally by some 30 percent overall within three years. The benefits of the phase-out will be a savings of between $100 and $200 annually on electric bills in each American household—a total equivalent to the output of 30 large power plants—and a reduction in global warming-inducing carbon pollution equivalent to taking 17 million cars off the road.

The first bulbs to disappear from store shelves are conventional 100 watt incandescents, but consumers can get compact fluorescent (CFL) or light emitting diode (LED) bulbs with similar light output instead. There are also some new more efficient incandescent bulbs that made the cut and will be available as replacements for conventional incandescents.

Everywhere, USA, January 2012— What do films such as Total Recall, The Notebook, Gothika, Inception, Anastasia, Memento, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind — and The Bourne Trilogy, have in common?

 Besides earning big at the box office, they all invoke memory loss as part of their message.

Even though amnesia and other situations that involve memory loss are not common, they’ve been featured often in films, dating back to the pre-1927 silent features.

 While most professionals conclude that cinematic depictions of memory loss bear no resemblance to the real thing, filmgoers continue to flock to the theatres when the plot involves memory.  www.prevagen.com
