My second part in a series on heart healthy food and food that will improve your sex life!
Nuts! Almonds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and pistachios are all a great, nutrient-dense snacks. Almost no saturated fat, but full of healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fat. In addition, they also contain minerals such as magnesium and zinc which have a profound effect on your heart and blood vessels. Magnesium helps dilate your arteries to keep them open, while zinc helps keep viruses that cause inflammation at bay. Inflammation is what propagates atherosclerosis and accelerates the artery-clogging process. Dust them in cocoa powder for a powerful aphrodisiac effect. You can even buy them pre-coated with chocolate or wasabi!

It's no wonder the heart has traditionally been the organ associated with love. As modern science and research have now proven time and time again, virtually the same factors that lead to a healthy heart also lead to a healthy sex life!
So what's the relation you ask? Cardiovascular health leads to open arteries in your heart, in your brain, and in your love organs. The same cholesterol that can plug up your heart's arteries, can plug up your arteries everywhere. Heart attacks, erectile dysfunction, and not to mention strokes all stem from the same problem: clogged, unhealthy arteries, also known as atherosclerosis. So what can you eat to help keep those arteries clean and improve your heart health and sex life?

Download the slides and audio for the three and a half hour digital marketing workshop. The audio for this presentation is critical, as many examples and tips were used during the class that were not in the slides. Especially, the live examples and live searches that were conducted. Also not covered in the slides were secret techniques and tips on using Google Search Insights to figure out what search terms to optimize for and what people search for when they are looking for you. We also discussed very advanced Facebook advertising techniques that you'd miss out on if you don't follow along the audio lecture.

So, it's here. Sprint's pure Google phone. And it's spectacular! A lot of people are arguing that the specifications are already outdated and that there are phones that will be released that already have better specifications. Where are those phones? As it stands now, this and the Google Nexus that was released on Verizon in December 2011 are the top two phones when it comes to Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and current specfications. The Samsung Galaxy S3 isn't out yet. The Droid Razr has slightly better specifications, but it's not Ice Cream Sandwhich yet. If you want 4G LTE and Andriod 4.0 and top notch speed and specifications with zero shutter lag, this is your phone!

Anytime you plan on making a significant lifestyle change, it helps if you have a social support structure around you to help you make that change. It's very difficult to quit smoking when everyone in your house smokes. You can't lose weight if the rest of your family keeps eating unhealthy food. One way to incorprate weightloss and a social support structure is through social applications. Smartphones are great becasue they have great apps! And some of them can help you lose weight.
One of the best apps for this is Calorie Conter by MyFitnessPal.com. You can search for it on your phone and download it. It is completely free.
You enter your sex, age, height, and weight, Then you give it a goal weight. It calculates your daily caloric intake allowance. For example, it may say, you may eat 1500 calories per day, and in 5 weeks, you will weigh 160 (assuming that's your goal).

I've been watching NFL football since the mid 80s. Elway, Marino, Montana, Kelly, Favre, Brady, Manning... I've seen them all.
I have never seen anything like Tim Tebow.
His current run is something I have never seen before. It's simply unbelievable. Looking back at these past seven weeks has been something truly amazing. John Fox, Denver's headcoach who has spent his entire life coaching, hasn't seen anything like this either.

If you've been an Ohio State football fan for a long time you will understand my frustration with Jim Tressel's style of football. Jim Tressel was a small town, mediocre coach playing small ball football in the big ten and winning on superior talent alone. He was continuously out coached, under prepared, and out game planned in nearly every big game he was a part of and never delivered big wins.
Ohio State kept him around because he dominated the big ten and beat Michigan every year. It was frustrating to watch his brand of football. Three yards and a cloud of dust, punt, punt, punt, and was never creative or aggressive on offense. Not only did he lose nearly every big game, he almost lost so many games to inferior programs. Youngstown, Toledo, Troy State, Ohio University... the list goes on and on. How many games did you watch and want to gauge your eyes out?

Although this isn't new information, a new article was published linking alcohol consumption to higher and higher incidence of breast cancer. We've know for years that alcohol is one of the few modifiable risk factors for breast cancer. Breast cancer kills 1 in every 36 women. Heart Disease kills 1 in every 3 women. What's new? Even very small amounts of alcohol increased risk of breast cancer.
The article in this weeks Journal of the American Medical Association is below:
