Cee Josephs: CBlog

I just finished watching (on my color turned black and white tv) a tribute to Paul McCartney at the white House, with president Obama presenting him with the highest award for popular music - the Gershwin Prize. Sir Paul's career is notable "because popular music is not made with an eye to longevity, but his music has stayed around for 32 plus years!" Paul and Stevie W. were great together, singing 'Ebony & Ivory', and after hearing Elvis Costello I am determined to hear more. Something Paul said resonated with me. "Writing songs is a mysterious magical process...to write songs my way, and then to hear how others interprete them is [awesome][my word]". To the first part I can totally relate. and I wish to hear others sing my songs too.You can watch it here @ http://PBS.org

A Christian’s Response To Copyright
April 13, 2010
What does the word “copyright” mean to you? If you’re like most people, you probably just don’t think about it anymore. Because of personal computers and the internet, copyright infringement has become so widespread that it almost feels normal. It almost feels, well, legal.
I’m not sure why, but for whatever reason a large number of Christians have stopped caring about “all that stuff” and decided to depend on their own lines of logic to decide what’s right and what’s wrong. Others, who are more oblivious to the system as a whole, are breaking the law because they see how common it is and truly have no idea that what they are doing is illegal. What I want to do today is make you aware. As Christians we are called to obey the laws of the land, and as Christians, most of us are not doing that in this area.
What Exactly Is “Copyright”So first let us define our terms. Copyright [...]

I am in the process of making my 5th CD project.  But I’m experiencing a familiar condition – GERD, which negatively affects my voice.  Because I am concerned with putting out my best project yet, I thought I would take medication, if only for a short time. Before, I have always tried to control it naturally.
But then I came across a paragraph from ‘Ministry of Healing’ by Ellen G. White:
“A practice that is laying the foundation of a vast amount of disease and of even more serious evils is the free use of poisonous drugs.  When attacked by disease, many will not take the trouble to search out the cause of their illness.  Their chief anxiety is to rid themselves of pain and inconvenience. ….they resort to paten nostrums, of whose real properties they know little, or they apply to a physician for some remedy to counteract the result of their misdoing, but with no thought of making a change in their unhealthful habits.  [...]

Dietitian vs. Nutritionist

Nutritionist vs Dietitian
I am asked many times by people interested in nutrition as a profession, what the requirements are. They seem genuinely confused when told, and I realize that there are many so-called nutrition schools that are offering nutrition programs not satisfying requirements for credentialing.
Here is a great article explaining the difference between a dietitian and a nutritionist.
Tara Gidus, MS, RD, CSSD, LD/N  http://healthline.com Have you ever wondered what the difference is between a nutritionist and a dietitian? To put it simply, a nutritionist has no concrete definition, while a dietitian has credentials to go with the term. Any person working in a health food store or otherwise can call themselves a nutritionist. A Registered Dietitian (RD) is a credential just like a Registered Nurse (RN) or Medical Doctor (MD). To become a Registered Dietitian you must:

Earn at least a Bachelor's Degree in dietetics, a 4 year degree from an accredited college [...]

So You Just Have to Drink?!

So you just have to drink?!
Claudette (Cee) Josephs, MS, RD
A large study found recently, that increasing fruits and vegetables in the diet lowers the risk of developing diabetes.  However, an increase in fruit juice consumption was associated with increased risk of developing diabetes.
Although fruit juices may have antioxidant activity, they lack fiber, are less satisfying and tend to have high sugar content.
It is not surprising to me, as I see this development over the years of treating clients. Too often I see mothers, on the subway, in church, in the park - feeding their babies from bottles filled with ‘red juice’ or what appears to be apple juice. Is it any wonder that we as adults gravitate to the same (juice thing)? Is it any wonder that diabetes is now an epidemic? Both clients and staff – practitioners alike, seem to feel they must have ‘juice’ or ‘drink’ with their lunch. And it is almost always available.
Yes, for a long [...]
