Not long after the Reformation began, a mighty effort was made by the Roman Catholic Church to regain its lost ground in Europe, to subvert the Protestant faith, and to promote Roman Catholic missions in foreign lands. This movement is called the Counter-Reformation.

The Dimwit Diary

Man, you dimwits.  I don’t know what’s happening.  I can’t sleep.  It’s 1:47 AM.  It’s raining.  Heavy thunderstorms and crashing lightening.  I have the windows opened.  There’s a nice breeze and it’s rather peaceful.  I like thunderstorms.  There’s probably some sort of metaphor in there to sum up my life.  Heavy thunderstorms and crashing lightening bring me peace.

Listen, I joke around a lot.  This is a humor blog primarily but sometimes you have to know when to put jokes aside.  This is one of those times.

Stiu ca e un titlu ciudat, dar nu stiu ce altceva sa scriu ca si titlu la aceasta postare.

Sincera sa fiu, in ultima vreme sunt putin dezamagita de blog. Si de mine, dar si de activitatea de pe aici. Desi postez in fiecare zi, comentarii nu prea sunt. La concursului ‘Tragic+Click to subscribe’ s-au inscris doar 3 persoane, desi ambele carti sunt foarte interesante. Si am fost atat de entuziasmata cand am putut sa vi le ofer ca si premiu…!

Oricat de mult as posta, ma simt de parca voi nu m-ati baga in seama pentru ca nu lasati niciodata nicio parere. Si acum vreau sa va intreb… ce se intampla? Va plictisesc? Nu va mai place ce scriu? Vreau sa va aud parerea sincera despre ce scriu eu, ca sa stiu ce sa fac in continuare sa imbunatatesc blogul.

There are several changes to how sunscreens are labeled. Under new FDA regulations companies can’t label their sunscreens as “waterproof” or “sun block.”

The SPF number now tells you how long the product will protect you from UVB-rays.  These are the ultraviolet rays that are the main culprit for causing skin cancer.

Dr. Antony Benedetto, a dermatologist on staff at the University of Pennsylvania, says the change is a step in the right direction.

“They’re trying to make sense for the public, to make it simple for them. But I think they’ve fallen a little short with the designation on the labels,” he tells KYW Newsradio.

He says that when picking a sunscreen, consumers need to take their time and read the small print before…
