New Year -- and a New Path

It’s a new year.  And, of course, when there’s a new year, people start thinking of their new year’s resolutions.
 
When it comes to resolutions, we first think of ways to improve ourselves.  Number one is usually our health.  We’re going to get in shape, lose weight, get healthy.  Number two is often about our finances.  Save money, make a budget and stick to it, control our spending.  Sometimes we want to improve ourselves in other ways.  Learn something new.  Cooking.  Dancing.  (Hey, those could help with the health and fitness resolution…)  Or maybe we decide this is the year to do some home improvement, either inside or outside.

The State of Health Houston & Harris County Report

When we think about health, we usually think about it on a personal level. We don’t often consider that our health and that of our neighbors constitutes a public policy issue, but the fact is a sizeable slice of any level of government’s revenue goes into promoting and protecting the health of its constituents. From immunization programs to restaurant inspectors looking for slime in ice machines, your tax dollars are directly involved in the health and well-being of your community.

The Harris County Health Care Alliance including Harris County Public Health and Environment Services, and many other county and city agencies has compiled the State of Health Houston & Harris County Report 2015 - 2016

Book Hunters in Brief #55: New Year, New You!

bhib: new year new youHopefully, you didn't get so caught up in the moment on New Year's Eve that you made resolutions you already regret, like, I don't know...doing your taxes before April 14th or being nice to those people who ring the doorbell at 7:30 on Saturday mornings. But if you made any of the ones that most of us make: to get fit, to read more, to organize your closets, or just enjoy life more, Harris County Public Library and Book Hunters can help. Here are a few books to get you started.

Changing Your Life...

What if you changed the way you live now? What would you do? Would the change be drastic - like taking advice from a popularity guide written in the 1950s,  not using a mirror for a year, or adding bugs to your diet? Maybe you would do something less extreme. Ever wonder what would happen if you took the SAT now? What score would you get as an adult?

Go Green
