A growing number of people are beginning to comprehend the health and environmental impacts of hydrofracking, or shale gas extraction, and oppose the practice; yet they often assume the negative impact of “fracking” is confined to areas where such operations are conducted. However, as the expansion of natural gas infrastructure sweeps the New York tri-state area, we are quickly learning that both the infrastructure and the new gas supply itself pose health and environmental threats very close to home.

Edgar Cayce, (March 18, 1877 – January 3, 1945) was known as the "Sleeping Prophet" and gave what was known as “readings” on thousands of different topics, including holistic healing. He is the most recorded psychic that ever lived and was featured in the New York Times in 1910. He is considered by many "The Father of Holistic Medicine" because he lived before the emergence of the New Age movement and influenced many of its teachings. His clairvoyant abilities made him a celebrity of his time and he founded a nonprofit organization, called the Association for Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.), to research and explore subjects such as holistic health, ancient mysteries, personal spirituality, dreams and dream interpretation, intuition, philosophy and reincarnation. A.R.E.'s stated mission is to help people change their lives for the better through the ideas and information found in the Edgar Cayce readings.

“Practice moderation. Don’t allow your dopamine to be hijacked” ~ Paul Huljich
When most people think of a hijacking, they often picture a person wearing a mask and waving a gun, who takes control of a plane, train or automobile. And although a person can hijack a car for a variety of reasons, it mostly boils down to needing to escape. In this regard, hijacking is a means to an end; innocent victims are ripped from their normal lives by the violent intrusion, wants and goals of the hijacker.
