A TRIP TO REMEMBER WITH GRATITUDE
By BFP Staff Tuesday, February 25, 2014
By Juliana Manjarrés Romero
My name is Juliana Manjarrés Romero, I am one of the twelve Colombian exchange students who visited the United States during the first three weeks of January. Traveling all the way to North America was an amazing journey for all of us, because not only did we get to learn about the US, but also to visit places such as: Minneapolis, Memphis and Rochester. The purpose of the trip was to have fun sharing what the Colombian culture is like and at the same time learning about american’s lifestyle. This was possible because each one of us got to stay with sponsor families and go to school with the host teenager. All the new, amusing and unforgettable events we lived will always be remembered as the cultural trip to the United States.
The goal, which is not just a mere feeling, is “Be positive”.

Vitamin C: If It’s Good For Gorillas Why Not Us
By Dr. Gifford Jones Thursday, October 21, 2010
Are you headed for a heart attack because of “marginal scurvy”, a condition resulting from a lack of vitamin C? Moreover, if vitamin C is sound medicine for gorillas, why isn’t it good for us? And in the 16th century, why did the ship’s cat survive long sea voyages when its sailors died from scurvy?
Today, we know that sailors of old, lacking vitamin C, died of this preventable disease. A shortage of fresh fruit in their diet resulted in degeneration of blood vessels, hemorrhage and death.
Networked Devices Spread Your Photos, Music Around
By Jim Bray Thursday, December 16, 2010
Media servers are becoming popular in this age of wireless home networks, delivering audio and video content from a computer or the Internet to whatever device you may want to use, within reason.
I usually use such devices to stream music, because most of the videos I watch are on Blu-ray and no matter how much hype you hear about downloads taking over, there are still bandwidth and file compatibility issues. I admit reluctantly to accessing YouTube and its ilk for some casual viewing sometimes, but media servers are increasingly playing back music in other rooms of my house.
