    Football is a sixty-minute game consisting of four 15-minute quarters and on Sunday the Denver Broncos walloped the Washington Redskins in the fourth quarter. Up 21-14 after three quarters, the Redskins lost 45-21.

    The Broncos’ 31-point fourth quarter outburst was assisted by a Redskins offense that couldn’t do anything right.

    On their sixth fourth quarter possessions, the Redskins were forced to punt twice and threw four straight interceptions to end the game. The first two were heaved into the air by quarterback Robert Griffin III while the final two came from quarterback ... Read More

    Dry Needling is an invasive technique used by physical and occupational therapists to treat acute and chronic pain, and rehabilitation from injury with very few side effects.

Physical and Occupational therapists utilize dry needling with the goal of releasing/inactivating the trigger ... Read More

    Juicing gives our bodies super concentrated vitamins and minerals that store bought juice can’t provide. The only downside is that many times, the pulp it produces gets literally dumped down the drain. These carrot spice cookies are an excellent way to recycle juice pulp into a healthy indulgent treat. After trying these, I’m sure you’ll add this to your long list of reasons to start juicing.

    Ingredients
    1 cup white whole wheat flour (can substitute for regular wheat or ¾ cup white ... Read More
