Praying Over Backwards


Pulled MuscleClarksville, TN – It’s been a while since I have written so I figured today is the day. After all, I can’t really work… or move much.

I was working out this morning at CF Sola Gratia (near Crossfit Sola Fide, behind Sam’s Club). I’ve been doing crossfit for a couple months now and have been seeing better results than I expected. I was used to going to a gym but gyms get fairly boring after a couple of workouts.

This morning I had a great warm up and I worked up to the weight I would use on my deadlift. After 41 reps I was setting the weight down and I felt it – SNAP! – a muscle said “goodnight.” I’m not sure if it is my gluteus or where my upper hamstring connects, but either way, it was on fire. On to the prayer, stretching and essential oils. «Read the rest of this article»

Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of April 28th, 2013


Weekly Market Snapshot

Market Commentary by Scott J. Brown, Ph.D., Chief Economist

Scott J. Brown Ph.D., Chief Economist Raymond James Investment Services

The economic data were generally on the weak side of expectations. The advance estimate of 1Q13 GDP growth came in weaker than anticipated (at a 2.5% annual rate, vs. expectations of +3.0% or +3.1%). Consumer spending was stronger than anticipated at the start of the quarter, while business fixed investment rose more slowly than expected. Inventories rose at a faster pace, adding a full percentage point to overall growth. Government (mostly defense) remained a drag on overall growth. The PCE Price Index continued to trend far below the Fed’s 2% target (suggesting little need for the Fed to taper its rate of asset purchases).

Earnings reports were mixed, but generally with some caution in the forward outlooks. Relatively slow global growth isn’t going to help and fiscal policy has dampened the outlook domestically. «Read the rest of this article»

Newborn Screening: 50 Years of Saving, Changing Lives


Tennessee Department of HealthNashville, TN – For the past half-century, millions of babies across America have been getting their heels pricked for a tiny drop of blood. The stick is part of a process known as newborn screening, which helps identify health problems quickly and has saved countless children from a variety of lifelong disabilities.

Newborn screening was developed by Robert Guthrie, MD, a researcher who was troubled by the early childhood health problems of his son and a niece. Guthrie developed a method in the late 1950s and early 1960s to analyze a spot of dried blood to identify a condition known as phenylketonuria.

When Mother’s Day Hurts


Sad MotherClarksville, TN – First of all, stop what you are doing, open the calendar app on your phone and mark May 12th as Mother’s Day. If you are a real go-getter, mark May 7th as “Get ready for Mother’s Day.”

Mother’s Day is a big day. It’s a day loaded with emotion for a lot of people. It means different things to different people. On the surface, we are all just supposed to pat our moms on the back for birthing us, but for many people (just like on any holiday), Mother’s Day can be a time of sadness. «Read the rest of this article»
