Jewish families offered $50,000.00 to move to Alabama

Jewish families offered about $50,000 to relocate to Alabama

September 9, 2008Recommend (3)

FROM THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
DOTHAN, Ala. -- An organization in an Alabama town is offering Jewish families as much as $50,000 to relocate its Bible Belt community.

Larry Blumberg is chairman of an organization wanting Jewish families to move to Dothan, an overwhelmingly Christian town of 58,000 that calls itself the Peanut Capital of the World. Get involved at Temple Emanu-El and stay at least five years, the group's leaders say, and the money doesn't have to be repaid.





Vitamin may prevent memory loss

Vitamin 'may prevent memory loss'

Many people are deficient in vitamin B12
A vitamin found in meat, fish and milk may help stave off memory loss in old age, a study has suggested.

Older people with lower than average vitamin B12 levels were more than six times more likely to experience brain shrinkage, researchers concluded.

The University of Oxford study, published in the journal Neurology, tested the 107 apparently healthy volunteers over a five-year period.

Some studies suggest two out of five people are deficient in the vitamin.

During Saturday's fights Rashad Evans had an "equipment malfunction" and had to borrow Marquadt's jock. In the post fight press conference he credited his win to Marquadt's jock. Video on UFC.com.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

That's a whole new level of tree hugging, I consider myself an environmentalist, but come on.

Schilling rips NY fans... Again...

Some good quotes in here, especially when he gets started on the genius that is B.B.

I don't care if you guys haven't seen him. Bill Belichick has seen him. Do you really think that he is the genius everyone claims him to be and just a rock head when it comes to his backup quarterback
