Fires Burn, Electricity Short

Posted by kingdom on July 1, 2012

Greetings Talk of Entebbe reader. What a thrill to be talking with each other again this week.

Most news this time here is not pleasant.

Vacationing students in dozens of states are not having a good holiday. Fires -- as of Thursday the 28th --  have burned almost 300 homes in the State of Colorado, and continue to burn as I write this. At least 3 persons have died, and many families are homeless. And on the east coast, heat has overwhelmed electricity supply leading to several deaths there as well.

Extreme Heat on The East Coast

The states of New Jersey, Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C., the nation's capital, are under extreme pressure of extreme heat reaching 103 degrees. Electricity has been knocked off for 2 million homes for more than a week, traffic lights not working, airconditioning gone. 13 persons have died due to heat exhaustion and other effects.

Students Coming to Class More

Here in San Diego, good news. Students in middle school to high school (p.7-A level) decided to continue attending classes instead of dodging. This reduced the drop-out to 10.9%  showing a graduation rate of 83% as compared to graduation rate of 76% for 2011. This is significant because California statewide, 15% of students doged school permanently. Think about this: Students here go to school for free, get free books, free transportation on buses from home to school and back home, get free meals, but still find it desirable to refuse to attend school.

Health Care for Free

Finally the U.S. Supreme Court ruled Thursday the 28th that any person living in America can be forced to pay for health care through an insurance scheme. The Affordable Health Care Act was passed by the parliament (Congress) dominated by The Democratic Party months ago but was challenged by 26 states (federalism allows states to do that). The Act means that everybody here must pay a monthly fee and if sick just go to the hospital. It differs from Uganda's "Mulago system" designed to be fully paid for by indirect taxation.

The Supreme Court has 9 justices, 5 ruled in favor. However, The Republican Party says that forcing citizens to pay for anything is "taxation" and since the Act was not originally passed as a new tax, they would work to stop it (repeal) if they gain a majority or get a Republican elected president next election coming next November 4.

Dark Liver Banned

Imagin walking into a restaurant on Luwum Street, ordering a liver and you are told "It's illegal madam..."  Well, that's what happened last week in California. Beginning July 1, 2012 dark liver (from specified animal) cannot be served by a restaurant. Fine is $1,000.00. But here is more: You can walk into the restaurant with your own raw dark liver, and if they agree, can prepare it for you and can eat it there without breaking the law. As I write, you can imagine how puzzled dark liver lovers are.

Well, I think it's time to go. Just cam back from church.

We will talk again next week. Stay well.

God bless you, your family. God bless Uganda, God bless America.

Trying To Find The Best Diet Pill?

Trying to find the best diet pill may seem like an impossible task, especially with the multitude of diet pills available for purchase. Many people purchase a diet pill only to find out that the pill makes them feel jittery, nervous, or often has no effect at all.

Diet pills frequently contain the same or similar combination of ingredients and rarely contain anything new, innovative, or undiscovered to the supplement / weight loss industry. So, how can you find the best diet pill when most diet pills are made with similar ingredients?

One of the most common problems associated with taking diet pills is that the person taking the diet pill is uneducated about the dosage, effects, and promises offered as they relate to each diet pill. The research at website finds that there are three factors that should be taken into consideration when deciding to take a diet pill.

Dosage:
It is important to take the pill exactly as recommended on the product label. Some people choose to increase the dosage thinking that the product will work faster or better. This is not the case, and many people become sick in response to the large dose. Reviewers at website often suggest that the recommended dosage be cut in half to give the body time to adjust to the stimulant in the diet pill. After the body has adjusted, it is fine to begin taking the regular dosage as recommended on the product label.

Effects:
The effects listed on the product label are there because these are the effects that the product has had on 'some' of the test group. Some of the diet pill testers may be fine taking the product, while others may have adverse effects. The diet pill companies print this information to educate the buyer as well as to protect themselves from lawsuits. The consumer needs to read the label and educate themselves before taking the product. Many people who are sensitive to caffeine are surprised when the diet pill makes them feel nervous or nauseous, but this information is likely printed on the product, so with a little research these affects can be avoided.

Promises:
If you read the fine print on product claims for diet pills and other weight loss supplements, you will see 'results not typical' printed very small somewhere where you are not expected to look. The diet pills advertised on television are responsible for some of the most outlandish claims. The results claimed in these advertisements are often unattainable within the given amount of time outlined in the ad. Don't expect to see results in two weeks like a lot of ads claim.

Wouldn't it be great if you could read reviews for diet pills from actual users of each diet pill? Diet Pill Reviews website has taken the trouble out of searching for the best diet pill. You can read reviews of over 150 of the most popular diet pills available.
