July 12, 2016
Alcoholism or alcohol addiction is the compulsive and uncontrolled consumption of alcoholic beverages, usually to the detriment of the drinker's health, personal and social relationships. It is medically considered a disease, specifically an addictive illness. Alcohol misuse has the potential to damage almost every organ in the body, including the brain. The cumulative toxic effects of chronic alcohol abuse can cause both medical and psychiatric problems.

July 12, 2016
In the hot summer months, property developer notes four simple tricks that will enable apartment hunters and homebuyers to dramatically lower their energy bills.

AUTHOR SEEKS SAN ANTONIO MAN WHO INSPIRED HER BOOK
July 12, 2016
Writer Elizabeth Ann Guevara seeks to track down the enigmatic man who inspired her novel SEPARATED BY DREAMS and changed her life forever. It all started back on September 12th, 2000.
Guevara, on a business trip in San Antonio, was attending a luncheon at the city’s Botanical Gardens when her briefcase was inexplicably stolen from the vehicle it was parked in, by a habitual thief. From that point on, Elizabeth began experiencing random occurrences of intense apparitions, and lifelike visions of this drug addicted thief that had stolen her briefcase and the awful circumstances surrounding his life.
What could simply be passed off as pure speculation, for Elizabeth, felt all too real. “The rotten smells of the thief’s drug fueled environment was so strong that I’d awaken with intense stomachaches. We’ve all experienced vivid dreams in our lifetime but this was something else entirely,” Guevara noted.
