Training After an Injury

Jun 28, 2014 ● By Cen Cali Life Magazine

So when you start an exercise routine after a major injury, it’s very important to go at your own level and pace. Take it slowly and really concentrate on basic movement, range of motion, posture, balance and proper form.

Information Fatigue Syndrome

Jun 28, 2014 ● By Cen Cali Life Magazine

"Row, row, row your boat.” It is a simple song, for a simple task. Even a child can row a boat and understand the principles behind why it works. Now look at a modern aircraft carrier. It is a boat; however, its complexity defies the ability of any one individual to fully understand all of the technology on the ship. Certainly, no one individual can operate it alone.

Jun 28, 2014 ● By Cen Cali Life Magazine

There may be no better way to spend a spring weekend: sampling food and wine from some of the nation’s most celebrated chefs in Monterey with my husband.

Roy Harland: Culinary Artist

Jun 28, 2014 ● By Cen Cali Life Magazine

Within minutes, the 72-year-old chef who has made a name for himself as one of the most gifted culinary artists in Fresno, has whipped up something that looks and tastes like one of his signature dishes: Angel Hair Pasta with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Goat Cheese. “What I like about food is not what a test kitchen guy would like about food,” Harland says. “I like the art of food.

Jun 28, 2014 ● By Cen Cali Life Magazine

Donnie Arax is a born coach. He knew when he was 17 that he wanted to coach football. Deep inside, it was the Bullard Knights he wanted to lead, because nobody bleeds Bullard Blue like Arax.

Our dad was a great coach and he loved it.

Children’s Hospital Central California: Experiencing What’s Possible Through Adaptive Sports

Jun 28, 2014 ● By Cen Cali Life Magazine

Hanford’s Star Restaurant: Where History and Community Meet

Jun 28, 2014 ● By Cen Cali Life Magazine

The cuisine is basic American comfort food. But what makes Star Restaurant unique among Hanford’s eateries, and a fact that many locals are unaware of, is its longevity. Star Restaurant opened in 1901 and is Hanford’s oldest restaurant. When the historic Star Restaurant opened, people rode horse-drawn carriages down the new town’s dirt roads, the Model T Ford was eight years away and Superior Dairy would not open for another 29 years.

Hinds Hospice: Filling a Need to Help the Terminally Ill

Jun 28, 2014 ● By Cen Cali Life Magazine

Hinds began caring for patients in her home in 1981. Because of her own experiences and nursing background, she could care for patients and support their families on their end-of-life journeys. However, the State of California forced her to close her doors in 1985 and she spent the next two years lobbying and pursuing legislation to be allowed to open inpatient hospice homes.
