Do You Have An Emergency Action Plan?

Posted by Tara Cohen on Sep, Tue 20, 2016

Over Labor Day weekend, this California girl was shaken awake by an earthquake. That wouldn’t be quite so surprising if it weren’t for the fact that I now live in Kansas City, Missouri. I’ll admit, in the same sleep-addled instant that I registered that we really were having an earthquake in Missouri, I also decided, in total Californian style, that this was not even a 3.5, so I stayed in bed.

Frankly, that was a really unwise move on my part. Structures in Missouri are not built to the high earthquake tolerances of regions, such as the pacific coast, where appreciable earthquakes are so much more commonplace.

They don't want to be defined by their diagnoses or thought of as, "The Diabetic Kid."

Tips For Staying Safe During A Zombie Apocalypse

Posted by Jenna White on Mar, Fri 02, 2012

2012 is the year of the Apocalypse...or so we've been told. Be it Mother Nature exacting her wrath, a political leader pressing a button he or she shouldn't, or a culmination of the two, according to doomsayers, this year isn't looking good.

Much has been made of the Mayan calendar's prediction that December 21 is crunch-time for humankind. Some religious factions are touting it as Judgement Day, but the Mayan calendar is more about transition than End Times. So where does 2012 leave the world? In the grip of Zombie Apocalypse fervor, of course.
