PLRD approves several funding requests Bethany Zacharias

ECA Review Reporter The Board of Trustees for the Prairie Land Regional Division #25 met May 1. Several funding requests were approved during the meeting. In order for these requests to be approved, Alberta’s Educational department needs to accept the draw on deferred capital. The funding requests included: the purchase of two additional 36-passenger buses at an approximate cost of $168,000, and the funding requests to upgrade the J.C. Charyk Hanna School kitchen and student lounge area and its Career and Technologies Studies (CTS) shops. The cost of the kitchen and student lounge upgrade is estimated to be $60,000. Renovations to the CTS shops are estimated to cost $280,000. Money from this total will go to offering students training in green technologies, such as: wind, solar and bio-diesel. The board also ratified the four-year framework agreement between the province, the Alberta School Boards Association and the Alberta Teachers’ Association. The agreement includes a zero per cent salary increase in the first three years and a two per cent increase in year four. The agreement also included a one per cent signing bonus that will be paid out in the fourth year. Jennifer Cooper, administrative support for the school division, says trustees expressed concern regarding the manner in which the agreement was negotiated but despite this the agreement was ratified by a 4 - 2 vote. The board also met with MLA Rick Strankman and education critic MLA Bruce McAllister to discuss the Wildrose Alliance Party’s education policy and rural education funding. Spring has sprung with record warm temperatures. Ducks are enjoying the open water and the grass is finally turning green. The board approved the appointment of Young ECA Review/J. Schroeder Parkyn McNabb as external auditor for 2012/2015, with the opportunity for a two-year extension.

Gardening with children what a joy! I n i t i a t i n g c h i l d r en i n to t h e j oy s of ga r den i n g a l l ow s them to discover the treasures of nature, and of course children just love treasure! To create some unforgettable moments with your little ones all you’ll need is a sunny corner of the yard or a few pots, some soil, seeds, and basic tools. If this is your rst attempt, be sure to choose plants that are easy to grow. Beans, peas, radishes, and spinach give quick results that will delight your children. Mark o a part of your vegetable plot or turn over some turf and add compost and topsoil. If you have more than one child, make a small garden for each of them to avoid squabbles. Alternately, make a container garden using clean containers with drainage holes. Place them where they’ll receive at least six hours of sunshine a day. Ensure that your children have their own tools. All they need is a dibble, fork, spade, and small watering can. There is no need for “play” tools; show them how to work the earth with proper tools, just like grownups. Ask your children to make a sign to identify each row of plants. If they don’t know how to print, they could make a drawing of the plant in question. Attach signs to sticks and stake them at the end of each row. Show children how to take care of their garden on a daily basis. To keep it enjoyable, only give them a few pl a n t s to c a r e for i n t h e begi n n i n g. W a ter i n g a n d w eed i n g require perseverance and patience, but children will be motivated as soon as shoots start to appear. And just think of how proud they’ll feel when their very ow n v eget a bl es a r e fea t u r ed on t h e f a m i l y ’s d i n n er pl a tes !

A buying guide for budding gardeners

Unless you’re an expert gardener, you might not nd it easy to make the right choices when the time comes to buy plants at a garden centre. There is such a wide variety of vegetable seedlings and annual and perennial decorative plants! If you don’t have a plant encyclopedia at hand as you browse the greenhouse, you may get lost in the maze of Latin names. A rst piece of advice would be to avoid any plants that don’t look like they’re thriving, as they probably won’t survive the transplantation process. They could also import disease and parasites into your garden.

Perennials

Purchase perennials in the spring so they can have all summer to develop. Before bringing home any plants, be sure to check that the soil in the pot is moist and that there are no weeds or moss on the surface — those are an indication of poor drainage or

masses of healthy, vigorous foliage with good colour. Check for parasites or diseases, such as rust and black spot, as bushes infected with them will never recover.

that the plant has been potted for too long.

Shrubs

Foliage is the rst thing to inspect when buying a shrub. Look for good colour, and make sure the branches are evenly distributed and have abundant foliage at the base. Avoid specimens with sparse, long, or unequal growth and with few or no visible buds, as these are a sign that the shrub has lacked water and nutrients during development. Take the shrub out of its pot and check its root system for rotting or parasites.

Lack of care or concern I have just watched the videos and read the articles by Jill Croteau regarding Taylor Argent’s death at Serenity Ranch. They included a short interview with our Minister of Health Fred Horne. I am hoping that the issues of addiction and lack of regulation will now be taken seriously as a provincial and Canada wide problem. It seems to be one of those issues that has no real direction with government controls in place for regulations, policies and procedures. Substance abuse and addiction does not have an age limit nor is there one specific drug causing problems. Lack of control on private rehab centre’s has created a situation where anyone or any group could open their doors and call themselves a rehabilitation centre. Surely this has to be a concern for families looking for help for family members suffering addiction. In the short interview with Minister Horne that is on the videos, he said there is no way of knowing how many private centre’s there are in Alberta. I know that as a citizen I can go on the internet and find lots of information on private centre’s in Alberta and even Canada wide private centre’s. As our Minister of Health I would sincerely request to Minister Horne, that this issue is not one that is swept under the carpet. This is a topic that requires legislation put in place by the government to require all private centre’s to be registered with the government and pass strict policies and procedures, along with accreditation in order to open their doors to people suffering addiction. Annual accreditation would mean that every centre would be inspected before being re-accredited. If the Government had more control over anyone trying to open a rehabilitation centre, families like the Argent’s would not have had to suffer the loss of their son. Families would be able to seek out safe centre’s for the addict in their family. With what goes on at Serenity Ranch, the lack of staffing on a 24 hour basis that

are properly trained and educated, Taylor Argent would never have lost his life. Jim Gray seems to shrug it off and blame addiction for the cause. In fact it was and still is the lack of proper care and supervision for their clients that caused Taylor’s death. Mr. Gray spoke of the thousands of people they have helped, but did not speak of all the clients that have died while in their care and all of the clients that relapsed right after leaving their centre. Any one that is educated in the field of substance abuse and addiction will tell you that there should never be anything accessible to clients that could in any way cause them harm. Serenity Ranch leaves garages and sheds open and clients unsupervised. This is a huge red flag for clients to freely walk into these buildings and have access to everything including things like antifreeze which is the product that killed Taylor Argent, along with the lack of care or concern when he became seriously ill. I am asking Minister Horne to take this seriously and bring this whole issue to the Legislative Assembly. Perhaps the drafting of a Bill with all of the requirements that have to be met before any Centre could open would be the right thing to do for Alberta and across Canada. Brenda Herzog BSc.

Young and ambitious Bethany Zacharias

ECA Review reporter

Michelle Hoover accepted the 2013 4-H Alberta Premier’s Award from Marguerite Stark, Branch Head of 4-H Alberta, at the 56th Annual 4-H Selections Event at Olds College from May 3 - 6. ECA REVIEW/Submitted

To say Michelle Hoover is young and ambitious would be an understatement. This grade 11 student from Delia School is only 17 years old and already has a plethora of prestigious awards under her belt. Just recently, Hoover was awarded the 2013 4-H Alberta Premier’s Award--the most prestigious honour awarded to a 4-H member in Alberta. “I was speechless for about 5 - 10 minutes,” says Hoover after realizing she had won. Hoover’s humble demeanor upon receiving the award doesn’t downplay the hard work she endured to win the award. Hoover and other top 4-H members from across the province had to go through a series of tests and interviews at the 56th Annual 4-H Selections Event at Olds College May 3 - 6 before a panel of judges

adjourned to deliberate and decide who the recipient would be. Hoover also participated in several 4-H clubs in the months leading up to the event.

Intriguing life experiences in India for Gordon and Deb Smith Four months after their arrival in India, Gordon (son of Marcus and Sonja Smith) and Deb (daughter of Don and Evelyn Long) Smith have sent an update of their time abroad. Both attended Veteran School, Grades 1 - 9, and then Coronation School for graduation. Gordon went on to become a chartered accountant and Deb is a school teacher. Gordon is now a partner with the Deloitte accounting firm, who have offices worldwide. Deloitte has sent Gordon to Mumbai, India for approximately three years as Chief Operating Officer (COO).

We lined up about one hour to get through the security for the venue and then sat in 35 degree heat with no wind for about 3.5 hours. We think we can now safely say “been there, done that”. Not something we are likely to do in the near future as the game is a bit boring. Last week we toured the Dhobi Ghat area which is main laundry area of Mumbai. The section employs about 5,000 people who earn between 80 to 120 rupees per day ($1.60 to $2.40), working 16 hour days, seven days a week. They get about one week off per year. It’s amazing that they can keep track of whose laundry is whose. This is also where workers will prewash by hand much of the new brand label clothing sold in India, this being to set the dyes. By way of example, one guy spends his entire day ironing shirts. He irons an estimated 500 shirts a day. When you think of it, that’s about two minutes a shirt over 16 hours. Gordon now has no sympathy for those housewives that complain about having to do laundry (as if he had any before the tour). One interesting devise was a charcoal iron. It uses burning charcoal instead of electricity, quite efficient considering the working environment. The area we live in has

Mumbai is not much of a tourist city, but with more than 20 million people in it, there are a lot of “hidden jewels”.

It covers a very large area so we asked our driver to take us there. The driver doesn’t speak much TREC English, but he did say “not good area” to us a few times before dropping us off.

Quality water on pasture improves calf gains A gr i -N ew s There are areas of the province that received higher than normal amounts of snow this winter. When spring actually arrives, and significant melting occurs, sloughs and dugouts could be filled to capacity, and possibly expand beyond their normal size. “Water quality from melted snow is usually very good,” says Barry Yaremcio, beef/forage specialist with Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development. “However, as water moves into dugouts or sloughs, it picks up dissolved salts from the ground and other contaminants which reduce quality. “Manure and urine deposited in areas of dormant grass grazing or swath grazing can also be carried into the dugouts or

sloughs. “With the ground not freezing in some locations of the province, the amount of soil particles carried into the dugout could also be higher than normal.” When turning cattle out onto pasture, it is best to provide offsite watering options so that they can access the water without damaging dugout walls. Wet banks are softer than dry banks. Hoof action loosens the soil and it ends up on the bottom of the dugout, reducing capacity. A lower water volume in the dugout later in the year can result in higher water temperatures. This increases bacterial growth rates and algae blooms can become a problem earlier in the fall. Higher Total Dissolved Solids (TDS)

Alberta bred barley a win for growers A gr i -N ew s The first malt barley bred by Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development is now to be commercially contracted for malt. Canterra Seeds and Canada Malting made the announcement that Albertabred Bentley barley will be contracted for malt purposes. Bentley is a two-row barley that is agronomically well-suited to the provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan. Alberta Agriculture research staff based in Lacombe, worked for many years on the variety, and it was registered in 2008. Bentley’s high yield, agronomic package and excellent quality profile has proven it to be superior to other malt varieties on the market. Now that malt approval is expected for Bentley, the variety shows even more value to growers in the Western Prairies as demand for malting barley is expected

to continue to grow. “The Alberta Barley Commission has been a long-time supporter of varietal research in Lacombe and it’s tremendous to see this announcement,” said Alberta Barley Commission chairman Matt Sawyer. “Bentley is an excellent example of farmer research dollars at work.” Canterra Seeds acquired the marketing rights to Bentley in 2008. “The impact of Bentley barley on the market is going to be substantial,” said Brent Derkatch, director, Operations & Business Development, Canterra Seeds,“This is the first malt variety bred by Alberta Agriculture in Alberta that is going to have a great economic impact for growers. “If he signs a Bentley malt contract, a grower can expect more money going back into his pocket.”

Under the On-Farm Water Management Program, 33 per cent of costs up to $5000 can be accessed to develop good quality water sources for on-farm use. Under the On-Farm Stewardship program producers in livestock and crop production will be reimbursed for 30, 50 or 70 per cent (depending on the project) of costs related to management practices that improve water quality. Check specific program information for producer eligibility details and funded items.

levels reduce the amount of water the animals are willing to drink. If water consumption is reduced, the amount of milk a cow can produce and the amount of feed they can eat is reduced, resulting in calves that are smaller at weaning and cows that are thinner going into fall and winter. “Developing a water system to prevent cows from drinking out of creeks or dugouts can improve pasture gains and increase weaning weights,” says Yaremcio. “Some trials have shown increased calf growth rate by 50 to 120 pounds.” Growing Forward 2 has programs that help producers implement projects and management practices that have a direct and positive impact on water quality.

Uncertainty over calf prices triggers interest in Alberta’s cattle price insurance With calving season well underway across Alberta, cattle producers are hoping that high calf prices – fuelled by tight cattle supplies over the last two years – will continue this fall when most calves are weaned and sold. But there are several unknowns and question marks on the horizon that have many producers across the province feeling nervous about where calf and feeder cattle prices could end up this year, says Anne Dunford, an Alberta cattle market analyst. “A lot of the nervousness we’re seeing began last fall when the U.S. drought caused corn and feed grain prices to spike, triggering a major drop in calf and feeder cattle prices,” explains Dunford. “Calf prices fell from a record $1.85/lb in February to $1.55/lb during the fall calf run last year. That price drop resulted from significant losses that continue today for feedlot operators and backgrounders who are shouldering record feed grain costs. The impact of those losses gets passed down the chain, affecting calf prices.” The price drop was a classic reminder that tight cattle supplies – the key driver behind today’s high calf and feeder prices – aren’t the only factor that influence prices, says Dunford, noting high feed costs have kept calf prices in the $1.50/lb to $1.55/lb range this spring. “Those prices could climb higher if moisture conditions in the U.S. turn around and large corn crops are harvested this fall, causing feed grain prices to decline. But, with so many other question marks on the horizon, there are no guarantees.” Dunford points to extreme market volatility and wild price swings that could pose challenges for cow-calf producers who sell their calves at the same time every fall. Consumer demand is another worry. “Consumers are paying record retail beef prices across North America. How much longer they’ll be willing to pay those prices will depend on the economy. That could have a huge impact on cattle prices this year,” she explains. All of the uncertainty has sparked a surge of interest in Alberta’s Cattle Price

Insurance Program (CPIP), that lets producers insure a minimum price for their cattle – protecting producers if prices fall lower while still allowing them to sell their cattle at the highest price. “Participation has tripled in the CPIPFeeder program this year and we’re getting substantially more phone calls and questions about CPIP-Calf which is only in its second full year of being offered,” says Stuart McKie, a field analyst with Agriculture Financial Services Corporation (AFSC), which administers CPIP in Alberta. Until now, participation in CPIP-Calf has been low. “Because calf prices have been so strong, many cow-calf producers didn’t feel the need for price protection, but that’s changing,” says McKie. “Producers are a lot less confident they’ll make money on their calves this year. Many are driving long distances to attend CPIP-Calf information meetings. And every day, about 10 new producers sign up to receive CPIP premium tables which are emailed three times a week to more than 1,000 producers across the province. It’s all because of the drop in calf and feeder prices last fall that triggered payouts of up to $80 per head on CPIP-Calf and up to $195 per head on CPIP-Feeder. The CPIP-Fed, Feeder and Basis-Only programs are still triggering payouts due to high feed costs and other factors.” The CPIP-Calf deadline is May 30, 2013. CPIP-Calf is offered from February to May, and the May 30 deadline to participate is coming up quickly. CPIP-Feeder – for producers who feed cattle to a certain weight before moving them to a feedlot – and CPIP-Fed – for feedlot operators – are both available year round. Rose Wymenga, a cow-calf producer near Leslieville, used CPIP-Calf for the first time last year. “We locked in a pretty high floor price of $1.54/lb at the end of May,” she says, and received a payout when her settlement price ended up at $1.46/lb in the fall. As a member of the Alberta Beef Producers Cow/Calf Council, she now promotes CPIP-Calf to other cattle producers. “We go to quite a

few meetings so we can pass on information about the program. We think having a floor price for our calves is important to cover downside risk and prevent losses. Things often look really good in the spring and then suddenly, whoops, something changes in the fall,” says Wymenga, adding that she plans to use CPIP again this year. “Cattle producers who aren’t happy with the CPIP floor prices and premiums being offered today should keep an eye on the premium tables,” says McKie. “Those prices change daily as markets fluctuate.” He explains the floor prices producers can insure with CPIP reflect variables such as futures markets, the price of barley, exchange rates on the Canadian dollar, and the basis – the difference between U.S. and Canadian cattle prices. “It covers all those risks in one tool.” The flexibility of CPIP programs surprises many cattle producers. “Especially when we tell them they don’t have to sell their cattle to collect a claim,” says McKie. “They can sell the animal later once prices improve. Or if they insure a floor price for November, but, sell their calves at a higher price in August, they can still collect a payout if prices drop and trigger a claim in November, even though they’ve sold the

calves already – as long as they owned the calves for 60 days during the policy.” No minimum number of cattle is need to be insured, and a four-week settlement window gives producers flexibility on when to settle claims. Claims are triggered when average calf and feeder prices at auction marts across Alberta fall below their insured price. “At the end of the day, CPIP is revenue protection that lets you lock in up to 95 per cent of the future forecasted price of Alberta cattle. Sometimes the price you can protect will be profitable. Sometimes it will minimize losses. It depends on where markets are that day,” says McKie. For more information about CPIP, producers can contact their local AFSC District Office, the AFSC Call Centre at 1-877-899-AFSC (2372) or visit the AFSC website.

ECA REVIEW

C O R O N AT I O N , A B .

SPORT Shorts • Blogger Steve Burgess, after NBA player Jason Collins came out and announced he was gay: “Good for you Jason Collins! Now let’s go further. The NBA will not truly be open until they also admit the short, the talentless, and the elderly.” • Comedy writer @JerryPerisho on Twitter: “Jason Collins is tired of being shunned, disrespected & treated differently. But, enough about playing for the Wizards.” • si.com’s headline on the story about Tim Tebow being released by the New York Jets: “End of an error.” • Greg Cote of the Miami Herald: “The Marlins are in the midst of a sevengame homestand against the Cubs and Mets, and attendance is such that the club is using inventive discounts and giveaways to all but beg fans to come. My favorite is the “2 for 1” promotion: If you buy two tickets, you get to pitch one inning of relief or have one at-bat.” • Janice Hough of leftcoastsportsbabe.com: “A new poll said four out of five Americans do not think the Washington Redskins should change their name. Although five out of five Redskins fans think the team should change their owner.” • TC from BC, snipped from leftcoastsportsbabe. com: “The PGA has dropped doping case against Vijay Singh over deer antler spray. It is no longer on the list of banned substances. Insiders say that Tiger never used it, but may have at one time hit on a waitress named Bambi.” • Comedian Ellen deGeneres, on Collins coming out as a homosexual: “It was especially hard for Jason to come out of the closet because he had to duck.” • Hough again: “To be fair, Jason Collins already has known what it’s like to face public embarrassment. He spent last season with the Washington Wizards.” • Comedy writer Jim Barach: “Greg Norman says the lack of blood testing on the PGA tour is “disgraceful.” Has he looked at the PGA tour stars lately? The only thing Tim Herron, John Daly and Kevin Stadler will test positive for is Haagen Dazs.”

Join us on a trip to Africa to interview a giraffe!

If you could ask a giraffe any questions you wanted, what would you ask?

A long, deep sleep is very dangerous for giraffes. We might not sense when a predator comes near. During the day, we doze on and off for a few minutes at a time. Quietly and gently we relax our necks and let our heads hang downward.

That little bird is called an oxpecker and it is a good friend to a giraffe. We don’t have arms and hands to flick away pesky ticks, fleas and flies. Oxpeckers pick them off of us. They eat the little pests and also help keep us clean.

FINISH

Giraffes are the tallest land animals. Find the missing number to find out how tall a giraffe grows.

Catch that flea! A flea is tickling the giraffe. Follow the flea’s path.

Male giraffes can grow to be _____ meters tall. That is the size of 3-4 grown men standing on each other’s shoulders!

START

At night, we lie down. But even then, we only take cat naps. We wake up every few minutes and look around.

Female giraffes can grow to be _____ meters tall. Baby giraffes are about 2 meters tall when they are born. That is more than 6 feet tall! If one meter equals about 3 feet, approximately how many feet tall are adult giraffes? Standards Link: Algebra: Solve problems involving numeric equations; express simple unit conversions.

Don’t challenge a giraffe to see who can stick out their tongue the farthest! Color the spaces that have 2 dots red to find out how many inches a giraffe can stick out its tongue.

ANSWER: Male = 18 ft. Female = 15 ft.

Four decisions to make when building a garden shed 1. Location - If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve decided to build a garden shed on your property, your first decision will be its location. First of all, find out about municipal regulations concerning the placement of sheds on private property. These usually specify the minimum distance from the residence, property boundaries, and public services, as well as the maximum surface area and height and authorized finishing materials. Then measure the available space at your chosen location, taking into account what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll use the shed for. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to

store the snow blower there, for example, ensure that you can access your shed at all times. 2. Use - Generally intended for the storing of tools, lawn mowers, bicycles, patio furniture, and pool and garden equipment, the shed could also be used as a workshop for a tinkerer or gardener. How you decide to use your shed will influence the surface area, height, and comfort factor. 3. Design - Sheds are available in a wide range of styles and materials. Most

Building a wine cellar: easy sophistication

PHOTO: JUPITERIMAGES / THINKSTOCK

Building a wine cellar isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as complicated as you might think. The first step is to choose a location where you can maintain a steady temperature between 11 and 14°C. To ensure the optimal ageing of your wine, the humidity rate should be kept between 60 and 80 percent. A good wine cellar compressor guarantees low energy consumption and will be able to regulate all these details. Wine has to be stored in the dark as it is sensitive to light. Consequently, you should plan to use a windowless room with a ceiling light and switch. The most efficient storage method is to use individual bottle racks, where the label for each bottle is

visible and where your wine will be easily accessible. Piling the bottles one on top of the other means moving them every time you come to choose a wine, and you will also risk disturbing the contents. Plan to use building materials resistant to humidity, such as waterproof gypsum, which is specially designed to resist mold. To safeguard the delicate flavour of your wine, the raw materials you choose for the racks and wall coverings should be free of odours, which can filter through the corks and into your prize vintages. The floor can be covered in ceramic, marble, or stone, all materials that have proven their worth in humid conditions. If undertaking a wine cellar remodel is a bit beyond your skill and budget, or if you like to keep things simple, another option is to buy an electric wine cellar that will be able to pamper your wine, hassle free.

Having a wine cellar is the dream of every selfrespecting oenologist.

manufacturers offer a choice of models, including basic, traditional, luxury, and made-to-measure. Whether you opt for a wood or metal shed, take into account the quality of the construction, its solidity, durability, storage facilities, upkeep requirements, as well as the quality and practicality of its design. 4. Assembly - Ensure that the foundations are solid enough to support the size and weight of the construction. If you are handy, you could build the shed yourself by selecting a ready-to-assemble kit or you could have it assembled by a specialist.

I Lost 58 pounds and Got My Life Back Here’s how hypnosis solved my weight problem…

Hi, My name is Candace Richter. I live with my husband. I lost 58 pounds total with hypnotism. 40 pounds in five short months. I went from a bulky size 16 to a size 4 and it feels great.

MY CHOICE

I was unhappy when I had weight on. Just look at my before picture and you get some idea of the suffering. Even my big clothes were too tight. Wow, did I feel sorry for myself. Maybe you’re there too. If you are overweight my hope is to inspire you to get the help you need. Look at me now. It really is possible. I really used to think it was hopeless.

FINALLY, THE FRUSTRATION ENDED

Hypnosis ended my struggle with weight. I had been to gym programs. I tried dieting. I even ordered videos. Nothing lasted. Now I am in a size 4 and this program is completely the reason why. My search stopped here.

Before Weight Loss

I saw the ad for hypnosis and called to make the appointment for the free screening. I figured what have I got to lose. I actually was so excited to get the help that I walked up to one of the hypnotists on the street before my appointment. I asked about the program. He visited with me and told me everything would be covered at the screening. I knew it was the right place immediately when I got there. They showed me other people like me who had succeeded on the program. It was fun and I learned a lot. They taught me that all hypnosis is really self hypnosis. Motivation is possible. I understood how this would work for me.

BETTER LIFE THE FIRST WEEK

I saw results right away. First I was more calm and in control of my eating choices. I stopped watching the scale and started choosing the activities that could really help me. I quit feeling sorry for myself. You could say the program simply adjusted my attitude and motivation. I always knew what to do but I needed help to consistently make the choices. This program gave me just that kind of help. We have kids so our grocery bill is up there. I saved hundreds of dollars on junk food alone. It’s nice to know that you’re not wasting money eating junk that is bad for your health. Of course the kids still raid the kitchen.

THE COUNTRY IS DISCOVERING HYPNOSIS

Lately, I have read articles in Newsweek ® and Fitness ® with information on the effectiveness of hypnosis. You may have even seen supportive information on network TV. Since I have used this method it’s amazing how many sources I see that know about the effectiveness of hypnosis. If only I had called the first time I thought about it I would have been thin a year sooner. Why suffer *** Individual results vary when you can get the support you need?
