Vanier is gone but his Christian model for living alongside the disabled

first_imgYonat Shimron YonatShimron Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email TagsDuke Divinity School Friendship House health care homepage featured Jean Vanier L’Arche people with disabilities Top Story,You may also like Share This! Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email,FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (RNS) — At the evening prayer service at a new residential complex here, a dozen young people took turns reading a passage from the Gospel of Luke, reciting a Psalm and singing some prayers.They paid no mind as one woman tripped over the words “rebuke,” “unrighteous” and “snare” that appeared in the liturgy. They congratulated another person who, at the end of the Lord’s Prayer, blurted out, “What does ‘amen’ mean?”“Good question!” some exclaimed in unison. It means “truly,” offered one; “so be it,” offered another.These kinds of moments are common at the weekly service where a mix of graduate students and a handful of adults with developmental disabilities share living quarters in three new buildings in the city’s Haymount neighborhood.Jean Vanier. Photo courtesy of Templeton Prize, John MorrisonFriendship House, as they call their co-housing space, is in many ways an outgrowth of the thinking of Jean Vanier, the Catholic theologian and humanitarian who died earlier this month and who changed the way many Christians view disability. Insisting on the humanity of all, Vanier worked to tear down the separation between the able and disabled and between those helping and those being helped.His signature creation was L’Arche, a worldwide network of homes where people with and without disabilities live and work as peers. The influence of L’Arche can be found in Friendship Houses, which have adopted Vanier’s core principle of “Eat together, pray together, celebrate together.”READ: ‘Intrinsically worthy’: Jean Vanier’s legacy to people with disabilitiesThere are seven Friendship Houses in the U.S. and one in Scotland. The Fayetteville Friendship House, which opened late last year, is the newest and most novel. While other Friendship Houses are affiliated with seminaries or Christian universities, Fayetteville’s is intended to allow students in health care professions the opportunity to learn from disabled people.It is the brainchild of Scott Cameron, a physician and a graduate of Duke Divinity School, who realized he needed to change his own attitude about some of the diagnoses he delivers to parents of babies he cares for in the neonatal intensive care unit at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center. With Friendship House, Cameron aims to extend that insight into a larger group of health care students.“I think it will help them change the way they view disabilities, not as something that is broken, but something that can be celebrated,” he said.Cameron and his family — his wife is a public school teacher — moved into a newly constructed house next to Friendship House last year. The Camerons often lead joint activities there.Two of the three Friendship House buildings in Fayetteville, N.C. RNS photo by Yonat ShimronThe campus, with three buildings, a barn and a garden, cost about $1.5 million to build. Much of that was raised through partnerships with businesses and nonprofits. The land was given by Highland Presbyterian Church, which is located across the street.The house is meant to attract those studying to be nurses, doctors, physician assistants, physical therapists and occupational therapists at four nearby universities and a community college. At full capacity, it will house 18 students and six people with developmental disabilities.Each resident pays a monthly rent of $450, including utilities, and is provided a bedroom on a single-sex unit. Each unit includes a disabled person and three students.But the students are not caretakers or babysitters. They are there mostly to offer social support.“My job is to be a friend,” said Victor Long, 30, who graduated from Campbell University’s School of Osteopathic Medicine this month and shares a Friendship House apartment with Michael Brown, a 24-year-old man with autism.“I go about my daily living. If I go grocery shopping or out to eat with friends, I try to get Michael involved, to be social,” said Long, who begins a residency at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center next month.Michael Brown, standing right, helps plant some raised beds at Friendship House in Fayetteville, N.C. Photo courtesy of Avery CameronThat help with socialization is a key part of what draws people with disabilities to the house.“Our son loves Friendship House and I think this is the first time in his life where he’s felt like he has a network of friends,” said Brenda Brown, Michael’s mother. “That’s probably the biggest thing he’s gotten so far.”The first Friendship House opened in 2007 at Western Theological Seminary in Holland, Mich. Matthew Floding, then dean of students, said a couple approached him at church and told him they wanted their disabled son to live independently but couldn’t find a safe place for him.At the time, the seminary was looking to provide more housing for its students, and the idea of pairing students with people with disabilities was born.Floding, now director of ministerial formation at Duke Divinity School, said the need for housing may have sparked the project, but theological considerations also played a role. A co-housing arrangement would provide students entering ministry the opportunity to live among marginalized people — people like those Jesus ministered to.“How can you train people to serve all people if you don’t address it in your curriculum or experientially?” he asked.An estimated 4.6 million Americans have an intellectual or developmental disability, according to The Arc, a national organization that advocates for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.Developmental disabilities may include cerebral palsy, epilepsy, developmental delay, autism and fetal alcohol spectrum disorder. Intellectual disability generally means an IQ test score of approximately 70 or below.Unlike L’Arche homes, which welcome people with profound disabilities (and also receive federal and state support), the adults with disabilities living in Friendship Houses typically have mild delays such as autism or Down syndrome. Most have high school diplomas and some hold driver’s licenses.Participants pray together after the spring planting and dedication of raised beds at Friendship House in Fayetteville, N.C. Photo courtesy of Avery CameronLike at the L’Arche homes, faith binds the residents together. While no one has to profess a Christian faith, or any faith, residents are expected to participate in the weekly prayer service.That was something Chasity Sullivan, 26, welcomed.“I’m a Christian and had been looking for a church — and hadn’t found the right one — and this offered a faith community,” said Sullivan, who is studying at Methodist University to be a physician’s assistant.Floding said he is interested in developing an interfaith Friendship House, perhaps on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. But for now, most of the interest has come from Christian seminaries: Princeton Theological Seminary, Pittsburgh Theological Seminary and Luther Seminary are all considering opening their own Friendship Houses, he said.For Cameron, who took his Friendship House residents on a hayride around town after prayer services on a recent Tuesday evening, it’s a worthy effort.“We need to be in community with folks who have disabilities more than they need to be with us,” said Cameron. “There’s something that they bring. It’s a leveling effect, where ambition and the career ladder and your bank account balance, they become silly.”The relaxing front porch of a Friendship House building in Fayetteville, N.C.

TxDOT Says Redesigned Exit Should Help Traffic Flow at A Freeway Hotspot

first_img X To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: 00:00 /00:49 After last week’s opening of the direct connector between I-45 northbound and U.S. 59/I-69 North, TxDOT will now open the new St. Joseph Parkway-Pease Street exit to help get traffic into downtown Houston.TxDOT’s Deidrea George said the revamped exit should be open by Monday morning’s commute.“It will feed directly from 45 northbound,” explained George. “And there will also be two lanes versus the one-lane exit that was there.”And George said having a ground-level exit will greatly help traffic flow.“The addition of the extra lane will definitely help to take traffic off of the freeway and move them out onto the frontage road quicker, which will also free up some of the traffic holdup on 45 northbound,” George told Houston Public Media.So where does the project go next? George said they’ll now start construction on the Cullen Boulevard ramp.“What the Cullen Boulevard entrance ramp will do, it will provide a ramp to the newly-elevated 69 north and southbound connector, which is Spur 5 now,” added George.TxDOT expects to complete the entire project by spring of next year.center_img – / 6 Listen Sharelast_img read more

Developing Legal Group Challenges the System Fights Black Laws

first_img1928 • U. Grant Tyler, Roy S. Bond, Emory Cole and John Hampton outside the Banneker Law Building, which was owned by African-American lawyers.After half a century of practicing law in Maryland, by 1935, Black attorneys were still denied entrance into bar associations.The two local groups at the time—the Maryland State Bar Association and the Bar Association of Baltimore City—offered professional comradery and mentorship opportunities to its members.“It was a way of networking and formally passing down information,” University of Maryland law Professor Larry Gibson says. “Older lawyers, in a social setting, could share information with younger lawyers and mutually help each other.”The doors to those professional organizations were closed to Baltimore’s Black lawyers, so they created their own brotherhood around a mission to uplift the race. They called it the Monumental City Bar Association.The Early YearsReferences to the Monumental City Bar date back to 1917 although the group’s early work was “spasmodic,” according to an AFRO article that commemorated the organization’s 10th anniversary. The association’s first leader was Cornelius C. Fitzgerald, an attorney who specialized in testamentary law and was considered an authority on wills.It was not until 1921, when W. Ashbie Hawkins became president, that he “led [the Monumental City Bar] into prominence with a new program of cooperation, legal supervision for race people and a fight on the ‘black laws’ of Maryland,” the AFRO article reads.The members of the group met each month, held discussions and formed committees.“They were a collective voice,” says Gibson.Although the attorneys led their own practices—some representing civil organizations such as the local NAACP and the AFRO—they united on civil rights concerns, opposed discriminatory laws, and endorsed politicians.Marshall’s Role1936 • Monumental City Bar Association, regular meeting letter.The Monumental City Bar was incorporated in April 1935. The group’s secretary was Thurgood Marshall, who would later become the nation’s first Black Supreme Court Justice. Gibson says Marshall drew up the legal group’s incorporation papers and filed them with the state.When Marshall was a newly-minted member of the Maryland Bar in 1933, he was denied office space to start his law practice because of his race. He finally found a workplace with two members of the Monumental City Bar—Warner T. McGuinn and William Alfred Carroll Hughes Jr. They leased the sixth floor of the old Phoenix Building in downtown Baltimore.“They were the first Black lawyers below Fayette Street,” says Gibson. “Most of the other Black lawyers were in the Banneker building on 14 East Pleasant Street, which is still occupied by Black lawyers.”Marshall’s first big civil rights win came the same year the Monumental City Bar was founded. The case forced the University of Maryland’s law school to admit applicant Donald Gains Murray and thus all qualified Black students.“Marshall felt strongly about this case because of his dismay, when he was about to begin his own legal studies, that he could not attend the Maryland school,” according to an AFRO article chronicling Marshall’s life in 1960.His work with the University of Maryland set the stage for his most memorable case, Brown v. Board of Education, which led to the desegregation of all public schools.The Black Legal BodyServing as the “legal body” for the Black community, the members of the Monumental City Bar adopted resolutions regarding legislation, even sending telegrams to lawmakers urging their support of bills that were important to the race such as the anti-lynching bill.In 1935, more than 22 cities on the East Coast had Black lawyers in their respective state’s attorney’s offices, but Maryland’s J. Bernard Wells told the AFRO: “I am afraid that Maryland is not ready for the appointment of a colored man [in this office].” Monumental City Bar members reacted by submitting petitions for the state’s attorney to appoint Black lawyers.Members were also active in the National Bar Association, comprised of Black attorneys from across the country. Marshall served as secretary in 1937, and the Monumental City Bar often hosted NBA conferences.1934 • Lawyers attend the National Bar Association in Baltimore.Prominent MembersFormer Monumental City Bar president, E. Everett Lane, was the “first robed judge south of the Mason Dixon line,” according to an AFRO article. Lane was appointed by Maryland Governor Theodore McKeldin in 1957 as associate judge of what was then the People’s Court of Baltimore City—a local court that handled 19,000 cases annually. That same year, Lane was among the first three Blacks admitted to Baltimore’s bar association. He was also a veteran, having enlisted in World War I and having been honorably discharged as an army sergeant.Lane called his work on the People’s Court “fascinating, but challenging…For the rights and welfare of many people must be guarded, and there are many cases in which those involved are unable, financially to procure counsel,” according to a speech referenced in a 1957 AFRO article.Law was an integral part of the attorney’s family. His father was one of the first Blacks allowed to practice in Maryland, and Lane says he was named after Maryland’s first Black lawyer, Everett Waring.A brother pair with ties to the legal group also contributed during this time period. The Kogers are said to have opened the first law firm in the country owned by Black brothers. Linwood G. and Azzie B. Koger were veterans who graduated from Howard University’s law school.Roy S. Bond was credited with more divorces than any lawyer outside Reno.Despite their similar interests in increasing opportunities for Black people, the pair had distinct strengths. Azzie B. Koger was more scholarly, writing about the history of Black lawyers and ministers. His brother Linwood Koger was more active as a lawyer, presiding over the Monumental City Bar for several terms, working as an assistant city solicitor, and heading the Baltimore Chapter of the NAACP. Linwood was also one of the first Blacks to run for the state legislature and Congress. The well-known attorney also became a judge and made an impression on a 13-year-old Gibson.“He’s the first Black judge I ever saw in my life,” Gibson recalls. “I have the clearest recollection of going down to the Northwestern Police District…Seeing this Black judge up there, as far as I was concerned, he might as well have been on the Supreme Court.”Another set of brothers opened a law firm in 1931—Cornelius C. and William L. Fitzgerald. The two-office firm specialized in real estate, fire, and automobile insurance. The elder brother, Cornelius, was Monumental City Bar’s first leader. The former city councilman and president of the board of trustees for Provident Hospital died of an illness in 1935, just months after the group’s incorporation.William Fitzgerald’s legal career spanned more than 60 years. He was also a Monumental City Bar president, and he represented Baltimore’s 17th Ward on the city council from 1919-1923. An AFRO article in 1950 announced he was the first Black person to pass Maryland’s written law exam.The younger Fitzgerald brother was a powerful voice behind the years-long campaign to increase Black teachers’ salaries. He was also a powerhouse real estate attorney, and the Housing Authority often called on him for help planning sites for low rent housing. His goal was to “make homes and investment property on principal streets available to members of his race,” according to his 1961 eulogy in the AFRO.Another active member of the Monumental City Bar, Roy S. Bond, owned one of the largest divorce practices on the East Coast. An AFRO article credited him with more divorces than any attorney outside Reno.“A White lawyer told me lines would come out of the building to see Roy Bond,” says Gibson. “He was handing out more than one divorce decree in the same day. The highest I found he issued was 12 [in the same day].”Bond served four terms as president of the Monumental City Bar, often mentoring up-and-coming attorneys and letting them take over some of his divorce cases.Although many of Maryland’s first Black lawyers championed civil rights cases, “they had to make a living,” explains Gibson. “Bread and butter work for lawyers was divorces.”By the 1950’s, the coalition of Black attorneys started winning local and state appointments, but it would be over the next two decades that they truly began to play a prominent role in the state and country’s political scene.last_img read more

Senate Committee Discusses Regulatory Burdens on Smaller Lenders

first_imgSenate Committee Discusses Regulatory Burdens on Smaller Lenders February 13, 2015 502 Views in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News Compliance Regulation Senate Banking Committee 2015-02-13 Seth Welborncenter_img During a hearing spread out over two days at the U.S. Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs on February 10 and 12, Committee chair Richard Shelby (R-Alabama) pointed out a “bipartisan understanding” that financial institutions need relief from perceived overregulation.The hearing, entitled “Regulatory Relief for Community Banks and Credit Unions,” was a gathering of the committee’s lawmakers to discuss the effect of recent regulatory burdens placed on smaller banks and credit unions in response to the financial crisis.”As the hearing on Tuesday demonstrated, there is a bipartisan understanding that something must be done to relieve the regulatory burden on institutions that provide essential banking functions to communities across America,” Shelby said on Thursday, the second day of the hearing.Shelby said the purpose of the hearing was to focus on “unnecessary statutory and regulatory impediments” placed on community banks and credit unions, and he told the members of the committee that “[a]lthough we may not agree on many things, I believe that we can all agree that community banks and credit unions play a vital role in our local economies.”Ed Templeton, Chairman of the National Association of Federal Credit Unions (NAFCU), testified to the committee that credit unions have a long history of helping the economy grow, and that “the need for regulatory relief is even stronger in 2015.” Templeton pointed out that 96 percent of the 1,100 federally insured credit unions that have gone out of existence since 2010 had assets of less than $100 million.”While NAFCU and its member credit unions take safety and soundness extremely seriously, the regulatory pendulum post-crisis has swung too far toward an environment of overregulation that threatens to stifle economic growth,” Templeton said in his testimony.Not everyone was convinced that the recent flurry of regulations enacted by such regulatory agencies as the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) have hurt smaller financial institutions. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts), a chief architect of the CFPB, pointed out to Daniel Blanton, chairman-elect of the American Bankers Association, that the earnings of community banks increased significantly in 2014 and even said they were doing “better than big banks.””We’ve heard a lot today about how smaller banks are being smothered by unnecessary regulation, supposedly because of Dodd-Frank rules, like the new mortgage rules that went into effect in the first quarter of 2014,” Warren said. ” … [T]he banking industry did substantially better after the (CFPB’s) mortgage rules went into effect in January of 2014. Why are they making more money since the rules went into effect and are doing better than the big banks?”Senator Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), ranking member of the committee, told the lawmakers that Congress passed, and the President signed into law, several regulatory relief proposals that received bipartisan support.”If we hope to find consensus on more regulatory relief proposals for community banks and credit unions this Congress, we will need to engage in a process similar to the one that allowed these bills to make it across the finish line,” Brown said. ” … The regulators understand the concerns being raised by community banks and credit unions—they made it clear in their testimony this week and in their actions over the past several months. They have responded by making—or considering—changes to their supervision and regulation of these institutions in a way that lessens their regulatory burden, while at the same time safeguarding safety and soundness and ensuring strong consumer protections.”Brown noted two such proposals that have been recently introduced. One of them is the Privacy Notice Bill, introduced by Senators Heidi Heitkamp (D-North Dakota) and Jerry Moran (R-Kansas), which has 75 co-sponsors. This bill provides an exception to the annual written privacy notice requirement. The other proposal he mentioned, introduced by Brown himself during the last Congress, would allow privately insured credit unions to become members of the Federal Home Loan Bank System and would make it easier for credit unions to make small business loans and improve access to mortgages.While Brown spoke of regulatory relief proposals that had been introduced, at the same time he made it clear that he did not want to do anything that would erode Wall Street reform legislation such as Dodd-Frank.”And I want to reiterate that I am not interested in moving proposals that weaken or roll back Wall Street Reform, or undermine safety and soundness and consumer protection,” Brown said. “But, I think we should act on the proposals that we all agree, after fair consideration, will make a difference for the smallest institutions.” Sharelast_img read more

Review Bythenumbers Oceans 8 covers familiar

first_imgReview: By-the-numbers ‘Ocean’s 8’ covers familiar territory Steven Soderbergh’s “Ocean’s Eleven” remake is a hard movie to live up to. Its starry charm was backed by a breezy and deceptively dense script full of memorable characters, dizzyingly complex logistics and lively filmmaking that Soderbergh himself couldn’t even recreate in the two sequels. But it is undeniable that even the near-perfect “Eleven” was missing something pretty major: Women. You know, besides Julia Roberts, that blackjack dealer and the one exotic dancer.So why not, 17 years later, fix that egregious oversight by gathering up a few Oscar and Emmy winners and nominees, a Grammy-winner and a buzzy comedienne to keep that Ocean’s franchise going and acknowledge the other half of the human population? If only “Ocean’s 8 ” was as a fresh and smart as that first one. (Hint: It’s not for lack of star charisma or talent.)Sandra Bullock anchors the cast as Debbie Ocean, the never-before-mentioned sister of George Clooney’s Danny Ocean, who has taken up the family business to varying degrees of success (we meet her in a parole hearing) and prefers to work without “hims.” ”Hers,” she later explains, can go unnoticed.And indeed, Debbie uses what could be a handicap very much to her advantage in a rollicking shoplifting spree at Bergdorf’s. It helps, of course, when you look like Sandra Bullock and you happen to have left jail in full hair, makeup and cocktail dress. But it’s still quite a bit of fun seeing her act the part of a wealthy and entitled shopper who tries to demand a refund for the items she’s literally just pinched from their shelves. 90 per cent of her method is simply looking like she belongs and taking advantage of the privileges that affords her.Don’t expect this level of class or gender commentary from the rest of the film, however. “Ocean’s 8” suffers from a bit of tonal whiplash. Half the time it seems to be veering into grotesque “Sex and the City” worship of brands and celebrity.Debbie’s plan is to steal a $150 million diamond necklace. In order to do so, she and her assembled team of savants have to first infiltrate the orbit of a vapid celeb, Daphne Kluger (Anne Hathaway), and convince her to wear said necklace to the Met Gala, where they’ll steal it and divide the earnings accordingly (a cool $16.5 million each).The team includes Lou (Cate Blanchett), who dresses like a glam rocker and spends her time watering down well vodka for profit; Rose Weil (Helena Bonham Carter), a kooky past-her-prime fashion designer desperate for a comeback; a jeweler in a rut, Amita (Mindy Kaling); Nine Ball (Rihanna), a hacker in dreadlocks; Constance (Awkwafina), a pickpocket; and Tammy (Sarah Paulson), a suburban mom who can’t quite quit her white collar crime ways.While Blanchett and Bullock are predictably solid in their roles and get at least a few memorable moments of worthy banter, it’s Hathaway who really steals the film with a wickedly on-point satiric turn a spoiled star. It is Hathaway’s Miranda Priestly moment, and could have only been made better had she gone full-meta and played a character named “Anne Hathaway.”The celebrity skewering is first-rate, but, for the most part, if you’ve seen Soderbergh’s “Ocean’s Eleven,” you’ve basically seen “Ocean’s 8” too. Director and co-writer Gary Ross (“The Hunger Games”) follows familiar story beats and attempts, unsuccessfully, to ape Soderbergh’s filmmaking style. And his glimpse inside the Met Gala makes that famously glamorous event look awfully pedestrian.It also doesn’t help that the stakes never seem all that real in “Ocean’s 8,”and when they do finally get an adversary, in a detective played by James Corden, it’s more for laughs.There was a danger to “Ocean’s Eleven” and a thrill in seeing that team succeed. Here, none of the women seem to have any fallibility at all, and you never find yourself doubting whether or not they can pull it off. Perhaps there is something subversive to the idea that all Debbie has to do is social shame two security guys from entering a women’s restroom, but we’re there for a something more elaborate too.That’s kind of the overall problem of “Ocean’s 8.” It’s all predicated on the fact that women are often underestimated. But in making that point, it’s also somehow underestimated the audience who still should be entitled to a smart, fun heist, no matter who is pulling it off.“Ocean’s 8,” a Warner Bros. release, is rated PG-13 by the Motion Picture Association of America for “language, drug use, and some suggestive content.” Running time: 110 minutes.

Fees for private doctors under Gesy published

first_imgThe Health Insurance Organisation (HIO) on Tuesday announced it has published estimated pay scales for private sector general physicians and specialists under the National Health Scheme (Gesy) to help them decide whether they would like to join.The reason it has done so, it said, is due to numerous calls by doctors who wish to be informed on their pay under Gesy. The lists cover reimbursement of doctors for inpatient care, but also payment for general physicians for adults and children and specialists for outpatient care.This information, the HIO said, aims to help physicians calculate and compare their current total earnings with the corresponding total remuneration they would receive under Gesy.The scenario for general physicians for both adults and children refers to the average number of beneficiaries per age category according to the population.In both cases, a GP’s annual salary will depend on the number but also ages of their patients.According to the lists, the maximum annual salary of GPs for adults is estimated at €111,737. This is based on €86 on average per year per patient assuming a GP has 1,300 patients registered, which is the maximum. The scenario provides for €71 per patient between 16 and 50 years of age, €101 for patients between 51 and 70 and €125 for those over 70.Paediatricians are estimated to earn up to €100,726 per year if they have the maximum number of children – 875 – registered. For children up to three years, paediatricians are estimated to received €185 per year. Their fee for children between four and seven would be €137 and €81 for those between eight and 18.To calculate his or her total annual salary as a GP, each physician is asked to change the number of beneficiaries they estimate to register as patients and/or change the number of beneficiaries per age group.The HIO also published lists of estimated pay for a large number of specialists, which took into consideration the 100 most common medical procedures carried out today. On those lists, the cost of each procedures is compared to that estimated under Gesy.It said that as these are merely indicative each specialist to calculate their fees under the Gesy would have to adjust the list according to the services they offer.The HIO, which is currently in consultations with the medical association (CyMA) on private doctors’ fees under Gesy called on doctors’ groups to submit their suggestions so that the lists could be updated.Maximum salaries of state doctors who will become GPs will reportedly be to the tune of €70,000 per year. To minimise the gap between the two sectors, the state health service organisation has commissioned a study for additional economic benefits and incentives for this group of health professionals, which could see their salaries go up by at least 25 per cent.Phase one of Gesy, which is primary health care, will kick in on June 1, 2019. Inpatient care will be introduced in phase two which is expected to be introduced in June 2020. Contributions of beneficiaries will come into force in March.The lists can be found at: http://hio.org.cy/gr/Activity_Cat.htmlYou May LikeUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndoDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoGundry MDHow To Make Your Dark Spots Fade (Effortless 2 Minute Routine)Gundry MDUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoIsraeli rape suspects freed, woman who alleged assault arrested (Updated)UndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
