Alcohol poisoning is the body’s response to having too much alcohol in its system. Alcohol slows down the body’s functioning,
including breathing and the gag reflex-meaning a person can choke on his or her vomit. If left untreated alcohol poisoning can lead

Stay with the victim. Do not leave them alone
If they are lying down, roll them on their side, so they do not choke if they vomit

Turning Over A New Leaf
December is infamous for thoughts of reflection and resolution. In a world
where everything moves so quickly, it's an opportunity to pause. It's a
chance to be still and be present. It's a time to consider your successes
and achievements, your setbacks and failures. It's a chance to practice
gratitude and mindful thinking. December instills a sense of hope for the
coming year; a clean slate, a fresh start, a new beginning. The thrill and
excitement of the unknown -- of possibility -- fills the air and thoughts are infused with the undetermined
road that lies ahead. (www.huffingtonpost.com/timetoreflect)
Why do we make New Year’s resolutions?
A New Year's resolution is a tradition, most common in the
Western Hemisphere but also found in the Eastern Hemisphere,
in which a person makes a promise to do an act of selfimprovement or something slightly nice, beginning from New
Year's Day. (www.health.com/health/gallery.html)
A resolution is a decision to do or not do something in order to
accomplish a personal goal or break a habit. It comes at a time
when people look back at the past year and make an effort to
improve themselves as the new year begins.
What New Year’s resolution
will you undertake in 2016?

The Ant Man Movie Review
by Liam Cromelin
The Ant Man movie was a good movie filled with a combination of science, comedy and BaskinRobbins. In my opinion, you should add this to your “movies to see” list.
According to Peter Travers, movie reviewer, ..“The latest film franchise culled from Marvel's comicbook universe packs a ton of fun into a teeny package. Its low-key charm helps glide us over trouble
spots in tone and pacing. Ant-Man stars Paul Rudd as standard-sized Scott Lang, a petty thief who gets
to shrink at will and cause all sorts of trouble. Ant-Man may not have the hulking clout of the
Avengers, but the little hero from Marvel's second-tier gets the job done. The movie version benefits
from not being familiar to the point of frustration.” http://www.rollingstone.com/movies/reviews/antman-20150715
To sum up the plot a Cat Burglar named Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) teams up with Hank Pym (Michael
Douglas) after stealing a suit that can shrink as small as a ant and grow back in a matter of seconds.
But Hank Pym’s old intern Darren Cross (Corey Stoll) has invented a suit just like the Ant Mans.
The overall sum of the story is it’s a funny, science-y, and smartly planned movie with great actors.
