You may have been exhausted before, but no matter what you do, you can’t seem to get to sleep. Chances are, you don’t even have to try hard to imagine this. And if you don’t have sleep challenges it is all but guaranteed that someone in your immediate circle struggles to get quality sleep.

New research in neuroscience shows a strong connection between your brain’s adaptability and your perception of physical or emotional pain. This ability of the brain to change and adapt is called neuroplasticity. Everyone experiences helpful neuroplasticity every day, where our nervous system learns and adapts. Riding a bike, driving home or even brushing our teeth are a few examples of helpful neuroplasticity. Your brain adapts to routine things which allows the nervous system to free it up so it is available to do other tasks.

Imagine this: every night when you go to bed you lie awake for hours as your mind races and you even wake throughout the night once you do get to sleep. You may have been exhausted before, but no matter what you do, you can’t seem to get to sleep. Chances are, you don’t even have to try hard to imagine this. And if you don’t have sleep challenges it is all but guaranteed that someone in your immediate circle struggles to get quality sleep. It is estimated that about 30% of adults have difficulty getting to sleep and staying asleep.

The brain's effect on pain

New research in neuroscience shows a strong connection between your brain’s adaptability and your perception of physical or emotional pain. This ability of the brain to change and adapt is called neuroplasticity. Everyone experiences helpful neuroplasticity every day, where our nervous system learns and adapts. Riding a bike, driving home or even brushing our teeth are a few examples of helpful neuroplasticity. Your brain adapts to routine things which allows the nervous system to free it up so it is available to do other tasks.

ADVERTISING: Advertorial — HOLLY CARLING: Cholesterol: The good and the bad

Most people have been made aware of the negative aspects of excess cholesterol in the body. High cholesterol/arterial plaquing that results in narrowing of the blood vessels and increased risk of stroke and heart attack are certainly an important concern not to be overlooked. But frequently what is ignored is the importance of cholesterol in the body. Also, if your cholesterol is high, why is it high? It’s not like the body has some vendetta against you and is trying to wreak havoc on your body for the fun of it! There is a reason why your cholesterol is elevated.

SOCIALISM: Cancer on society

After reading the guest opinion by John Strobel I was blown away by the gobbily goop he spewed about the great wonders of “American Socialism.” What a crock. Socialism is a cancer on any society. To compare it to building roads, bridges and other infrastructure is obscured at best and downright dumb!

Then I want to know where all our tax money went for highways, bridges, schools, colleges, police, fire and EMT services.

MOVING HISTORY FORWARD Frederick Blackwell: A man of vision

In the early 1900s, Frederick A. Blackwell, a very successful lumberman from Pennsylvania, and his son, Russell, visited North Idaho to check on reports about abundant timber resources in this part of the country. His trip confirmed that those reports were true. He immediately formed a lumber company and began to buy large tracts of timber land in the area. He purchased property on East Sherman Avenue and built two beautiful houses, one for himself and one as a wedding gift for Russell. Within a few years, the Blackwells became one of the most prosperous and well-respected families in Coeur d’Alene. Blackwell was more than a successful lumberman, he was one of the most diverse businessmen in the history of Coeur d’Alene. In 1909, the Spokane Chronicle listed Frederick Blackwell as one of 17 millionaires in the Inland Northwest.

INMATES: A major gamble

Before an inmate is housed in a jail/prison, they go through a classification system to determine where in that facility they will be housed. A very important aspect of that classification system is their prior criminal history. To assume that a person up for release into a re-entry facility is a non-violent offender because he is serving time for a non-violent offense is a HUGE mistake! I have not read anywhere that a person’s prior criminal record is considered prior to being sent to a re-entry facility. If it is not, it most certainly should be.

Critters of North Idaho: Wolverine

What would happen if you grabbed a weasel and crossed it with the ferocity of an animal over 10 times its size? Well, you would probably get something like the wolverine (Gulo gulo). Even though they look like miniature bears, they are actually the largest member of the weasel family. You are probably familiar with many of this critter’s relatives, which, aside from weasels, include otters, badgers and ferrets. The wolverine can grow 33 to 44 inches from snout to tail and weighs between 24 and 40 pounds. They typically live seven to 12 years in their natural habitat.

AP: Embarrassment to journalism

I have never read such a piece of hatchet-yellow “journalism” that was in your Feb. 5 issue on the president’s State of the Union speech. Obviously the “journalist,” and I use that term very loosely, was from the left side of the aisle. Nevertheless, to slant the coverage of the SOTU as he did was inexcusable. And of course the juvenile antics of Nancy Pelosi tearing up her copy of the speech was outstanding — why didn’t she just throw herself down on the floor and stamp her feet?
