Originally introduced into the market as sertraline, this SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor) is a popular anti-depressant. The drug hit a bit of a row in recent history largely because new research suggests that SSRIs have little to no effect on clinical depression, despite the high rates of use among those with health insurance
The side effects alone should help you get over your depression!
Glasses, also called eyeglasses, spectacles or specs, have frames supporting lenses worn in front of the eyes. People normally wear them for vision correction, for example, reading glasses. Glasses may also be worn for protection, for example sunglasses to protect the eyes from ultra violet light rays.
"Sun specs", in the form of flat panes of smoky quartz, protected the eyes from glare and were used in China in the 12th century or possibly earlier.
In the early 1900s, the use of sunglasses started to become more widespread, especially among the pioneering stars of silent movies. Inexpensive mass-produced sunglasses were introduced to America by Sam Foster in 1929. Foster found a ready market on the beaches of Atlantic City, New Jersey, where he began selling sunglasses under the name Foster Grant from a Woolworth on the Boardwalk.
Since the 1950s sunglasses have been popular as a fashion statement, especially on the beach. They have also been associated with celebrities and film actors primarily due to the desire to mask identity, but in part due to the lighting involved in production typically being stronger than natural light and uncomfortable to the naked eye.
In the preparation for solar eclipses, health authorities often warn against looking at the sun through sunglasses alone. A 1995 study reported that "Expensive brands and polarizing sunglasses do not guarantee optimal UVA protection.
Sunglasses may also include vision correction lenses.

The Sensual Partner Club will strive to bring out the sexy in you while you are in a fun, safe and caring environment. The Sensual Partner club is about reaching inside yourself to find your inner beauty and grace and expressing it through dance.
Club dancing is social and fun; dancing partners are changed, voluntarily, almost with every song... so you will soon get to meet new people and even the most timid "wall-flower" will get to dance.
Sensual Dance is the foundation for all exotic dances and includes lap dancing, floor work, wall dancing, strip tease and pole dancing, but it always includes getting sweaty and having a great time. Even Television has picked up on just how popular this form of entertainment has become.
Strictly Come Dancing is the original BBC television show; the American version is known as Dancing with the Stars.; both programmes clearly demonstrate how much effort and desire there is to become a sensual partner.
Love & Personals used to be considered the place to develop your sensual partnership, now it's the dance floor.
One of the biggest problems for a budding ballroom dancer has always been in finding partners. Many beginners, for the very first time, go to a class on their own. I remember my very first class, age 13 years and the only boy amongst fifteen girls (every one of whom was taller than me). But I was the most popular boy in the school - and it's a great way to overcome any shyness.
Both partners have a great deal to give each other and, as long as they communicate with each other, theirs will be a stable and happy relationship. Club dancing is social and fun; dancing partners are changed, voluntarily, almost with every song and you don't have to go with a partner - single people are always welcome.
Sometimes, chemistry with the teachers, or good dancing partners are more important than what others think of the club. There is a lot more that goes on behind the scenes, as dancing partners fall out, fall over, or sometimes even fall in love. Dancing partners are increasing their chances of staying life partners and there is a bonus in the bedroom as well. For example, dance partners, Camilla Dallerup and James Martin are among several of the Strictly Coming Dancing pairs who are rumoured to have cooked up a little romance.
The Art of Sensual Dance for every body also includes tips, secrets and steps to overcoming shyness and setting the stage for seduction in the privacy of your own home. Sensual dancing, not only works the body, but also the mind and soul. Sensuality allows me to experience a physical paradise, as the feelings experienced are inside and accompany me into the outer physical world. Sensuality, inner individual feeling power, in the future will be allowed maximum genuine expression since nothing is causing an arousal in anyone.
Sensual Dance Therapy teaches a strong emphasis on this style, and focuses on elegance, romanticism and sensuality; reflecting their tradition and culture, rather than a sequence of steps. It's more about feeling comfortable with yourself and using your body sensually than a set routine.
Pole and sensual dance is a revolution in feminine fitness. Sensual Dance is the woman's guide to self-empowerment through sensual movement. Handsome young man flanked by two gorgeous, sexy blonds who dance sensually around him. From housewife to executive, you can be sexy, erotic, passionate, provocative and sensual all while feeling great about yourself inside and out (dancing is a great workout) and to know and see that your man is loving every second. In addition, sensual dance is a great way to get an awesome thigh and core workout.
No one ever cries during a waltz (unless your dancing partner is Orson Wells and he trod on your foot). If your dancing partner is less than fleet-footed, you can always opt for a tutored wine tasting over Sunday lunch instead.

Having a slim and healthy body is very much on people's minds today. Most people think a healthy body is about being fit. In reality a healthy body is a combination of many factors, of which exercise is a small part. A healthy body is achieved not only with physical wellbeing but also with a healthy mental and spiritual attitude. The key to good health and a healthy body is directly related to what is put into that body and how the body is treated.
For many people the word "Diet" means food restriction of any sort, such as skipping meals, eliminating certain food groups, etc. For years, a "healthy diet" has been largely defined by foods that should be avoided.
However, this kind of food restriction puts its host at risk to develop an eating disorder.
I am of the belief that "diets" don't work. I believe that the best way to lose weight and keep it off is to eat a lot of the right foods, foods that are nutritious and varied, and to eat them regularly at mealtimes, this keeps the metabolism working efficiently to burn fat and provide energy naturally and healthfully.
Yes, essential food groups and nutrients should not be ignored, but for me a healthy diet is one that gives you a wide variety of foods, allows for treats and that will help you live longer, be healthier and happier.
Diet, fitness, exercise, and proper nutrition combined fine tune your body to not only look great, but feel great. It starts from the inside out with a healthy diet. Of course, exercise and a fitness program will help you look better, but if you want real vitality and unstoppable energy, nothing beats eating a healthy, balanced, nutrition-rich diet.

Pay Per Play (PPP) is a service that will pay you for playing audio advertisements on your web site or blog.
The idea is similar to Adsense in that the PPP code picks an appropriate audio advertisement to play based on the content of the page, so the ad is targeted and therefore relevant to your visitors.
But rather than getting paid for a click, you get paid when the audio runs to its conclusion. The advertisements may be 5 seconds or 30 seconds, so you should have a fairly high conversion rate, particularly with the 5 second ones. You won’t get paid for 100% of your visitors, certainly, since some of them will leave before the advert has ended, but it should be a better percentage than Adsense.
For hosting the adverts, you earn 25% of what the advertiser spends to play their ads on your page. You can also earn 5% of what your referrals earn, and 5% of what their referrals earn.
The service is in pre-launch right now, so it’s hard to say what the actual cost per play (CPP) will be. Advertisers will bid for the key words, so expect the CPP to be low at first. Bidding is scheduled to start on 1st February 2008.
Over time advertisers will see which websites are converting best for them and their competitors and consequently the bid value will rise.
The service sounds pretty interesting. 5 seconds is a fairly long time in Internet terms, but audio ads have a way of registering on the mind, even if you're not really listening... if that were not the case, why would companies advertise on the radio?

Imagine you're flying in a commercial jet and the pilot tells you he'll be putting the aircraft on autopilot. That probably wouldn't be a concern. But imagine you're at your doctor's office and he tells you that he's just put his judgment on autopilot.
Two questions: Where's the parachute, and where is the exit?
Unfortunately, doctors often simply go with basic procedures they've always used. But things change, and when doctors don't stay on top of changes, patients sometimes suffer.
One perfect example of an autopilot medical mindset concerns the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test used to determine prostate cancer risk. I've shared this warning several times before, but the mainstream still hasn't picked up on it so it can't be repeated enough: Men, if your doctor suggests a biopsy based on a high PSA level, he may be flying on autopilot.
It's three thirty in the morning.
First Wife is happily asleep (making the most of a night free of my snoring).
Meanwhile I'm in my dressing gown, tapping away at the computer, unable to sleep. My usual trick of reading and sipping hot milk isn't working, so I thought I'd put the hours to good use and write about two problems that can cause serious misery in any household...
As you probably know by now, I'm loath to fill my body full of man-made drugs to get rid of pain. This only deadens the symptoms without doing a thing to tackle the root of the problem.
But now there's a new remedy that could change the way we tackle headaches - especially aggressive sinus headaches - for good.
Next to migraines, sinus headaches really are the baddest of the bunch. They start when the network of passages that link your forehead, cheeks, nose, and eyes become inflamed. This blocks the circulation of mucus air, causing infection.
But as ever, a little digging around can reveal a whole host of natural remedies.Try Barberry (berberis vulgaris), echinacea or eucalyptus, all of which work wonders when it comes pain relief - plus they can enhance your immune system, prevent colds, and reduce sinus inflammation...
And in the four hours I've spent digging through the internet tonight, thefollowing natural remedies crop up time and time again as powerful headache treatments:
Why do men get all the help and have all the fun?
Sometimes that question is put delicately, and sometimes not so delicately. But hardly a week goes by that I don't receive an e-mail like this one from one of my readers...we'll call her Mary:
"I am a female 56 years old and going through the menopause. My sex drive does not exist, I used to be well you know, feeling it. I hardly ever feel it anymore. Why is there always focus on men and their erections, and never on a woman's libido? I would love to enjoy sex again. Isn't there any natural remedies for a woman's sex drive? If so please reveal the secret to me, it seems that it's such a secret that a woman would want that feeling, as much as men."
The secret to stimulating the female libido is not really a secret, it just doesn't get the same attention as those products designed for men. But not today. Today it's your turn.
