Making Friends

By Sam Towers

Towers Behavior Services LLC


Many individuals with disabilities do not make friends easily, leaving them at a great disadvantage. Friends enrich one's life considerably and give individuals the opportunity to practice social skills in less threatening situations.
This training will give the participants the knowledge necessary to structure play dates and other social interactions so that individuals with disabilities can make friends with a greater variety of individuals. This training is applicable to many settings, including home, school, and the community.

Date: Monday, September 14, 2009

Time: 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Location: Respite Care Inc. 6203 S. Lemay Ave, Fort Collins
Great for parents, teachers and therapist!

Kevin Trudeau on Swine Flu & Mass Vaccinations

Kevin Trudeau, Wellness Advocate

Kevin Trudeau, Wellness Advocate

The Swine Flu Is Spreading & Mass Vaccinations Are Coming Soon!

By Kevin Trudeau,
The mainstream media has not discussed one of the most significant events in the last 100 years. Over the last month, the World Health Organization has raised the alert level for the swine flu to level six. This is the highest level the World Health Organization can issue, declaring a worldwide pandemic for the swine flu. This has gotten virtually no national media attention.
When a level six pandemic is declared by the World Health Organization, individual countries have the legal right to require its citizens to get vaccinations or to take drugs if the government deems necessary. Currently, many countries around the world have ordered unprecedented volumes of vaccinations, and are gearing up to have mandatory vaccinations of the population.
I predict that in the fall there will be announcements that the swine flu has mutated into a more deadly, dangerous form. Whether or not this is actually true is yet to be seen, but I predict that the media will create mass hysteria about the dangers of this fast spreading, potentially deadly swine flu. The media and the government will then use scare tactics to convince you to take the useless and dangerous drug Tamiflu and get a vaccination against the swine flu.
While this may sound like the government is taking steps to protect the population from this deadly swine flu, the facts that are missing from this scenario are important and eye opening. The first fact that is missing is that the drug Tamiflu does virtually nothing in the treatment of swine flu. The other fact that is missing is in relation to vaccinations. The vaccine being purchased by countries around the world, to be administered in the fall, is for a strain of swine flu that occurred last year. It absolutely, categorically will do nothing to protect you from the new mutated strain of swine flu that I predict will be sweeping the globe in the fall.
A question that comes up is "Kevin, what are you going to do about the swine flu?" My plan is simple. I do not take drugs. I do not take vaccines. I know that the mainstream media is owned by the pharmaceutical companies and the government. I know that the plan is to get as many people to take as many drugs as possible for two specific reasons. First, so that the drug companies can make hundreds of billions of dollars in profits. Secondly, I believe that the government wants to, in effect, drug up the population for various controlling reasons.
My plan is very simple. I have a number of natural products that I take to keep my immune system strong. By taking these supplements, I am making sure that I have no nutritional deficiencies and a strong immune system. I also do not take any drugs of any kind, either prescription or non-prescription. The fact is, nonprescription and prescription medication dramatically suppress the immune system making you susceptible to influenza, colds and other illnesses and diseases.
