I’ve been told that it’s an instinct that gets stronger with experience. There are no greater heroes than those who’ve put themselves on the front line, without hesitation, to help others physically and emotionally during uncertain times. The beauty of selflessness is truly something to behold. It’s also beautiful to witness the manifestation of dreams for people who deserve it; it’s supremely satisfying to watch good things happen to good people.  Shortly after this past Thanksgiving, I took the [...]

NEIGHBORLY CARETAKING

2021-02-01T09:31:27-05:00

Photo by Gleren Meneghin on Unsplash By Marilyn Pellini I took my annual winter sojourn to Florida last year, as usual, but it lasted longer than I had intended. I normally return home in March, but my children thought it would be less of a health risk for me to remain down there until things got a bit better back home. I am older and I do have some health issues, so being down in the sunshine and sitting six feet away from my friends at the pool was definitely not a hardship. When I did finally travel back north at [...]

And I’m about to teach the loyal Booze 101 readers what kind of extras to have on hand in order to make you — the cocktails, that is. Not the hearts, flowers, chocolates, or dinner dates. I’m not here with recipes, but I can recommend a few sites for that later. First, let’s talk about those fancy bottles sitting at the bar that only get used every now and then, and why you should consider [...]

STEPPING UP

2021-02-01T09:31:41-05:00

Photo on Unsplash By Emily Drier The field of tech is here to stay. Now, especially with our global pandemic, technology is  growing at a pace the world is scrambling to keep up with. Most companies find themselves thriving with remote employees and online offerings for their constituents; there’s certainly no going back to how it was before. I’m grateful to be part of an industry that continues to evolve.  These days, I’m a part of this industry as a technical project manager for Human Element, an Ann Arbor-based ecommerce web development agency. I spend my workday managing all aspects of [...]

YOUR ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM: THE STEWARD OF YOUR BODY

2021-02-01T09:31:48-05:00

Photo by Jennifer Enujiugha on Unsplash By Lisa Profera MD It’s all about balance. The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is perhaps the most important system in the body. Its main functions are commonly summarized as “Eat, sleep, relax, forget, and protect.” This system is very ancient and can be found in all animals with a backbone (chordates).  The three basic components of the ECS are the cannabinoid receptors on cell membranes, the chemical “keys” that bind to the receptors (or “locks”), and the enzymes that break down the chemical keys once they have completed their task. This is a very dynamic, fluid [...]

CARETAKER OF YOUR THOUGHTS

The time, effort, and energy you bring to this work betters yourself and your community. You, and only you, are the caretaker of your thoughts. It’s a privilege, an honor, and a challenge. You are the one solely responsible for managing your perceptions and persuasions, your hopes and dreams. Cultivating a strong mind has always been a priority for me. It’s a life-long practice. I believe that the [...]
