Raiola intentionally stomped on the ankle of Ego Furguson. He did not trip. Watch the video. He NEEDS a huge fine and a multi game suspension. This is not what his unclaimed child (Yee) or any other kids across the globe should be seeing . You are an embarassment to the NFL and the game. If you say you tripped then you are a liar, I say both. Shame on Caldwell for believing him, another liar. When football takes presedence over morals and sportsmanship, the game is over.

Flatulence-
MANY PEOPLE THINK that if their digestive system is normal, they won't have any gas unless they eat a particular food, like beans. The fact is that normal people on an average diet expel nearly a quart of intestinal gas each day. Most of us aren't aware of this. It's when we become aware of the gas that it can become uncomfortable and embarrassing--

Gas is formed when certain foods reach the large intestine without being completely and adequately digested. When they arrive, bacteria that reside there go to work to digest them and in the process produce gas. This is a normal process; in most cases, intestinal gas is not a sign of a disease. Today, when we're eating more high-fiber foods and 'fruits and vegetables--which can be sources of intestinal gas--the problem of flatulence is more common--

The major cause of occasional excess flatulence is gas-promoting foods. Most people know that beans are a major suspect, but there are other foods that will put you at risk including apricots, bananas, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, eggplant, radishes, and onions--

Obviously the first step in reducing flatulence is avoiding the foods that give you gas. But remember that people react differently to various foods. Some people have found that corn, oats, and even bagels give them gas. You have to make a point of noticing which foods give you problems. Of course, even when you identify the foods, it may not be practical or even sensible to give them up--

There are ways to reduce the amount of gas produced by one of the main offenders: beans. Soaking beans in water for at least twelve hours and then cooking them welt will help reduce their gas-producing properties. Make sure that you discard the soaking water. Rinse beans thoroughly and be certain to cook them thoroughly until they are completely tender with no "bite" left--

There are other methods to help reduce gas while still eating problematic foods. The most effective one seems to be a new product called Beano. You use it as a condiment, adding a few drops to your first spoonful of offending food. It has a mild soy sauce-type flavor that usually works well with beans and other gas producers--

Some people find that activated charcoal tablets, which are available at health food stores, help cut down on their gas production. The charcoal absorbs the problem odors. If you try activated charcoal tablets, be careful to avoid taking them within two hours of any other medication. Because they are so effective at absorbing chemicals, they can absorb your medicines and make them unavailable to your body. It is not uncommon to experience intestinal gas and bloating when on antibiotics. As I've discussed, antibiotics kill off good as well as bad bacteria in your system, and an overgrowth of yeast can result. Yeast overgrowth is a common cause of flatulence and can be easily remedied by following a yeast-free diet as well as taking acidophilus tablets available in health food store--
