  • Miracle Baby - From March of Dimes

    Posted by Corey Carter

    Next time somebody asks you to donate to the March of Dimes...please read this and look at the picture below....

    One of the many "Miracle Babies" that the March of Dimes helps save each year.  

    I met this little guy at the March for Babies on Saturday in Ashwabenon

    We didn't get this little guy's name, but his Grandma was proud to say that he was born at THIRTEEN OUNCES and after 3+ months in N.I.C.U., he's happy & healthy!

    THIRTEEN OUNCES!!  It's absolutely amazing that he was able to survive...a true miracle!

    I've been here for almost 3 years and NEVER heard this story about Katie from the Murphy in the Morning Show and Aaron Rodgers. (listen below)  

    Katie talked about the Reese Witherspoon arrest where she said "Don't you know who I am??"  Katie had a similar experience with Aaron Rodgers...

  • The Sleep Calculator! Find out WHEN You Should Go To Bed Every Night

    Posted by Corey Carter

    Since Murphy was sick today, I knew I had to wake up earlier than I usually do for the show this morning...I came across this last night and thought it was pretty interesting.  I did feel pretty awake this morning....but I'm going to have to test this a few times before I'm a true believer

    (This is based on having to wake up at 4:05am as I did this morning)

    HERE IS THE WEBSITE:  http://sleepyti.me/


    You should try to fall asleep at one of the following times:

    7:05 PM or 8:35 PM or 10:05 PM or 11:35 PM

    Please keep in mind that you should be falling asleep at these times.

    The average adult human takes fourteen minutes to fall asleep, so plan accordingly!


    sleepyti.me works by counting backwards in sleep cycles. Sleep cycles typically last 90 minutes.

    Waking up in the middle of a sleep cycle leaves you feeling tired and groggy, but waking up in between cycles lets you wake up feeling refreshed and alert!

  • 26.2 Race for Boston

    Posted by Corey Carter

    Run for Boston

     

    You may have seen this on Facebook.  Melissa called in to the radio station to tell us about it today:

    It's simple...if you're a runner, the next 26.2 aren't about race prep, monthly mileage or self. It's about our brothers and sisters, the ones we don't know but share a bond with. 

    Run for the ones for whom today's 26.2 might have been their last, and for the ones that didn't finish.

    Run it in 1 day, 1 week or 1 month.

    Just run.

  • 12 Tips to Avoid Food Borne Illness

    Posted by Corey Carter

    With 3 young kids in our house, the prevention of spreading germs is virtually impossible, but I figured I'd share this for some good tips of keeping the family healthy...so we can EVENTUALLY get out and have some fun in the Spring (lol - Spring...when??) 

    Avoiding Food-Borne Illness

    (HealthNewsDigest.com)  With enough warmth, moisture and food, 1 bacteria can divide into over 2 million in 7 hours. But there are a dozen food safety tips you can do to prevent this from happening.

    1. Wash your hands often. Half of all foodborne illness can be prevented by this one precaution. To keep it simple, wash them every time you start to prepare a different food, if you leave the kitchen, or after you go to the bathroom.
    2. Do your food shopping last and head home. Don't leave bags of groceries in the car while you do other errands.
    3. Don't thaw frozen food on the kitchen counter. The warm temperature in the kitchen will promote bacterial growth. Thaw foods slowly in the refrigerator, under cold running water, or quickly in the microwave.
    4. Avoid cross-contamination. Wash cutting boards and knives with soap and water between cutting raw meat and preparing vegetables or cutting bread. Never place cooked food on a dish that previously held raw, unwashed food - even vegetables; remember they grew in the dirt.
    5. Don't stuff the refrigerator. Cold air needs to circulate to keep the temperature constant and low. Use a cooler for beverages if you get overloaded. And, even if it's snowing, the garage isn't cold enough or clean enough to keep foods that need refrigeration.
    6. Don't eat raw dough containing eggs or let kids lick the bowl scraper; it's a leading cause of food poisoning. There is no risk from eating baked dough because any unhealthy organisms are easily destroyed by heat.
    7. If you drop it dump it. No matter what your mother said, food that lands on the floor shouldn't be eaten.
    8. Travel with care. If your trip is longer than a half hour - and who can predict traffic - use a cooler or insulated bag. Microwave hot packs make great heat boosters when traveling with hot foods.
    9. Boil the gravy. If gravy is made from pan drippings bring it to a rolling boil. Boil a second time if you reheat it the next day.
    10. Debone leftover poultry or fish. The carcass can harbor bacteria.
    11. Refrigerate leftovers promptly. Foods do not need to cool down before going in the refrigerator; counter cooling speeds up the growth of bacteria.
    12. Eat leftovers in 3 to 4 days or throw them out. You can't see or smell bacteria, so even good-looking food can be contaminated.

    When it comes to food safety here are some things to consider:

    • There is a risk to eating anything.
    • Choosing what food to buy and eat is a series of decisions you make based on a risk-benefit ratio.
    • It's not worth the risk to eat rare hamburgers, even if you like the taste.
    • It's not wise to eat raw shellfish.
    • It's probably not wise to drink unpasteurized juice or milk.
    • It doesn't seem worth the risk to eat an apple or peach without taking a few seconds to wash it off.
    • But it is worth the risk to continue to eat fresh fruits and vegetables. People who eat them regularly have a 15% lower chance of dying from all diseases and the odds get even higher for specific diseases.

  • Water or Coke? CRAZY FACTS!!

    Posted by Corey Carter

    We've always heard that you should drink a LOT of water every day and I've been trying to do this for the past few years.  It seems to work pretty well...I also start EVERY day with a 20oz glass of water - I read in Men's Health a few years back that it helps to 1-wake you up and 2-kick starts your metabolism.  

     

    Here are some interesting facts about drinking water vs. Coke:

    ery interesting indeed! Water or Coke? We all know that water is important but I’ve never seen it written down like this before.

    WATER
    1. 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated.

    2. In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak that it is often mistaken for hunger.

    3. Even MILD dehydration will slow down one’s metabolism as much as 30%.

    4. One glass of water will shut down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a University of Washington study.

    5. Lack of water, the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.

    6. Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.

    7. A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term memory, trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on the computer screen or on a printed page.

    8. Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45%, plus it can slash the risk of breast cancer by 79%, and one is 50% less likely to develop bladder cancer.

    And now for the properties of COKE

    1. In many states (in the USA) the highway patrol carries two gallons of Coke in the truck to remove blood from the highway after a car accident.

    2. You can put a T-bone steak in a bowl of coke and it will be gone in two days.

    3. To clean a toilet: Pour a can of Coca-Cola into the toilet bowl and let the “real thing” sit for one hour, then flush clean. The citric acid in Coke removes stains from vitreous china.

    4. To remove rust spots from chrome car bumpers: Rub the bumper with a rumpled-up piece of aluminum foil dipped in Coca-Cola.

    5. To clean corrosion from car battery terminals: Pour a can of Coca-Cola over the terminals to bubble away the corrosion.

    6. To loosen a rusted bolt: Applying a cloth soaked in Coca-Cola to the rusted bolt for several minutes.

    7. To bake a moist ham: Empty a can of Coca-Cola into the baking pan, wrap the ham in aluminum foil, and bake. Thirty minutes before the ham is finished, remove the foil, allowing the drippings to mix with the Coke for a sumptuous brown gravy.

    8. To remove grease from clothes: Empty a can of coke into a load of greasy clothes, add detergent, and run through a regular cycle. The Coca-Cola will help loosen grease stains. It will also clean road haze from your windshield.

    For Your Info
    1. The active ingredient in Coke is phosphoric acid. Its pH is 2.8. It will dissolve a nail in about 4 days. Phosphoric acid also leaches calcium from bones and is a major contributor to the rising increase in osteoporosis.

    2. To carry Coca-Cola syrup (the concentrate) the commercial truck must use the Hazardous material place cards reserved for Highly corrosive materials.

    3. The distributors of coke have been using it to clean the engines of their trucks for about 20 years!

    Now the question is, would you like a glass of water or coke?
