This month is
Autism Awareness Month. Autism is a
complex neurobiological disorder that typically lasts throughout a
person's lifetime. It is part of a group of disorders known as
autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Today, 1 in 150 individuals is
diagnosed with autism, making it more common than pediatric cancer,
diabetes, and AIDS combined. It occurs in all racial, ethnic, and
social groups and is four times more likely to strike boys than
girls. Autism impairs a person's ability to communicate and relate
to others. It is also associated with rigid routines and repetitive
behaviors, such as obsessively arranging objects or following very
specific routines. Symptoms can range from very mild to quite severe.HERE
Aid for AIDS of Nevada has
led the AIDS Walk for over eighteen years.
Individual Walkers and Walk Team numbers have
grown significantly, sponsorships by local
businesses and organizations continue to
increase, and public awareness rises with every
walk. Today there is newfound hope in the fight
against AIDS – but still no cure. Some people
with HIV/AIDS are living longer thanks to new
therapies. Tragically, the new treatments do not
work for everyone, and HIV continues to spread
at an alarming rate. We will walk until
that point in time, when AFAN is no longer
effective, our services no longer needed and our
purpose no longer essential to the solution. For

Well, the marketing campaign you reap is what you sow —
especially when sex and secrets are the boldest words on Las Vegas’
calling card. Ad campaigns for this great town must show more than
implied sex and ‘sin’ in the city, or risk being ranked as an expensive,
hedonistic wasteland in this tough business economy........
