When I was younger, my mom was busy raising me and my three younger brothers on her own. She was working two jobs at any given time, and sometimes even three. She was so busy trying to keep us in a home that she did miss out on a few things like teaching us about proper oral hygiene. I do not hold that against her at all, but I knew that I was going to need to see a cosmetic dentist in Greenwood Village if I wanted to have a nice smile.
I was really embarrassed over my smile because my teeth were crooked and stained. I was brushing them two to three times a day once I realized I was in danger of maybe losing some of them, and I also used a rinse and floss. While that routine did save my teeth, it was too little too late … Read More

In April 2006 it was very hard to penetrate the camp, but the mayor of Makhmur town (Abdul Rahman Delaf, a well known Kurdish writer) granted access to me and my friend who acted as interpreter. 8 months later, when we went back to share the pictures I took, the access was even harder, and I had to let my camera at the check point. By now authorities have been banning journalists from the camp. It sounds like the publication of an article which offended them was the main reason from so many precautions.
Makhmur is als now in the highlights of the tragical news:

There aren’t many options out there today to the consumer when it comes to quality private health insurance companies that offer good rates. There are a lot of companies out there today, but few of them actually offer a private policy that is worth buying.

Because of advertisements and other forms of media that promote smoking, many teens think it is okay and cool to smoke. And the result is that many teens are getting addicted to nicotine and cigarettes. All over the world, smoking begins as a teenage experience. Few smokers have begun smoking as adults. In the United States, on an average day, at least 3,000 young people become regular smokers, and more than 6,000 adolescents try to smoke their first cigarette. The outlook for regular smokers who began smoking as teenagers and continue into adulthood is grim. Research shows that people who start smoking before the age of 21 have the hardest time quitting. It is also estimated that about 30% of youth smokers who continue smoking well into adulthood would die early from a smoking-related disease. While smoking may be legal for adults, the medical costs associated with it are enormous. … Read More
