Pay Attention to Julian Keith’s Neurofeedback Research
Though two and a half million American children currently take medication for ADHD, as well as one and a half million adults, individuals with the disorder face several difficult truths. Prescription medication will not provide relief for as many as forty percent of them. The remainder may experience adverse side effects that outlast or overshadow benefits.

Larry Cahoon Extracts Value from Waste
Larry Cahoon, a marine biologist at UNCW, specializes in aquatic ecology. Two decades ago, he and colleagues began to notice unprecedented algae blooms along the North Carolina coast. The source of these bacterial blooms initially was a mystery, but soon Cahoon realized the changes in water quality coincided with an emergent local hog industry. As swine production increased in North Carolina, so had swine waste.
