To the more than 10,000 law enforcement agencies who use them, Taser-style stun guns probably seem like a godsend — a quick jolt of electricity and even the brawniest and most berserk criminal can be brought to the ground. No guns, no deaths and no permanent damage.
Or so Taser International, the weapon’s manufacturer, would have you believe.
However, a CrunchGear investigation paints a different picture. Not only have at least 167 people died after being Tasered, according to The Arizona Republic (although the number of these deaths that can be directly attributed to the weapons is disputed), but there appears to be an aggressive effort by the company to silence critics and to control data and, on occasion, manipulate statistics with the intent of preserving an illusion of safety surrounding its products.

No. You don’t have to take Driver Ed or Driver Training to get your permit, but you will not be able to get your Driver License until you are 18 years old. You must pass the written test at the DMV and you must practice driving at least 50 hours including 10 at night. Your insurance company may offer a discount if you voluntarily complete Driver Ed and Driver Training. Insurance companies know that professional driving instruction combined with 50 hours of supervised practice reduces the crash, injury and death rate of newly licensed drivers and other roadway users.
Many types of herbal detox tea ingredients can be purchased today by spreading a variety of filtered teas (traditional, balls, pyramids), loose herbs for dozens of other miscellaneous mixtures to choose from leaves.
Below you will see a fact that you do not realize to help you choose the perfect combination of herbal detox tea.
Tea bag or loose leaf: Generally, loose leaf tea is better for tea than tea bag type. This is due to the larger leaf size and higher quality herbs than leaf tea. Furthermore, since loose leaf tea can move more space than a tea bag, it will produce a taste of better tea.
Organic Tea: Since the main purpose with drinking herbal detox tea is to reduce toxins and impurities from our system, it is advisable to choose a bio mix to avoid adding other toxins (pesticides etc.) for system cleaning.

Our digital presses are calibrated to emulate sheetfed printing without the added costs of making plates or printing higher quantities. There are many advantages to digital printing.
You are no longer tied to the minimum press runs of conventional presses. You can print one copy as easily as 1,000 copies. In addition, print on-demand extends that concept further by not printing a book or magazine until it is ordered by the end-user. This has been helpful to those consumers who do not want to read a book or magazine on an e-reader or tablet. Simultaneously eliminating the problem of a publisher holding unsold inventory. No project is too small and the savings can be considerable.

Last week I shared with you some natural tips on flea and tick prevention and care for dogs, this week we are focusing on cats! I am at heart, truly a cat person. Dog’s loyalty is great and all…but cats make you work for their love and then only show slight interest, except in the middle of the night
when they suddenly think you are their favorite person and they love you so much they are going to jump onto your sleeping body, climb down the length of your entire body until they reach your face and proceed to meow at you while showing you just how much they love you with a few kneading claws into your chest, over and over again. Yes, cats only show you affection when it pleases THEM…but I like that about them. I even secretly find it pleasing when my cat won’t let other people pet him because he’s too good for their pets, but not mine. Inside, I admit when he DOES oddly let a stranger pet him, and likes it, I get a little bit jealous. Cats are totally my cup of tea, but they are a little bit more complicated than dogs, so greater care is needed for their health and safety.
