What’s the most scared you've ever been?

locot_jenniferWhen I was little my uncle used to go outside of our bedroom window when we were going to sleep and he would start to scratch on the window. We'd think that somebody was trying to get in. I literally connot remember being more scared, it was petrifying. And then after a while we realized it was him.

When I crashed during a week-long beginner’s hang gliding class. I had a 45 pound kite strapped to my back and I was running as fast as I could down a hill, and a road approached faster than it was supposed to. I have a crushed ankle bone, but I survived.

We were driving along this road in Nepal in a very rickety bus, and we come to a place where we pass this big cliff and it was really scary because we saw about five or six of the same kind of bus we were in about 3,000 feet down at the bottom of the cliff smashed into a thousand pieces.

Sugar: The New Tobacco?

Proposed bill would require warning labels on sugary drinks Will soda and other saccharine libations soon come with a health warning? They will if it’s up to our state senator, Bill Monning (D-Carmel). On Feb. 27, Monning proposed first-of-its-kind legislation that would require a consumer warning label be placed on sugar-sweetened beverages sold in California. SB 1000, also known as the Sugar-Sweetened Beverages Safety Warning Act, was proposed to provide vital information to consumers about the harmful effects of consuming sugary drinks, such as sodas, sports drinks, energy drinks, and sweetened teas.
