Marking its final Charity Preview in January and looking ahead to a new and transformed event in 2020, the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) tonight capped off its 30th anniversary celebration by raising $4,028,800 for children’s charities at the black-tie gala. A total of 10,072 people attended and raised a glass to commemorate the end of an era and the dawn of a new day for the NAIAS and the Charity Preview.
Now in its 43rd year, Charity Preview has raised over $121M for southeastern Michigan children’s charities since the Detroit Auto Dealers Association established the gala. Sponsored by Axalta Coating Systems for the fourth consecutive year, Charity Preview has evolved into the largest annual single-night fundraiser in the world.More
In their continuing effort to promote safety and enforce sound and alcohol laws, Michigan Department of Natural Resources conservation officers conducted group snowmobile patrols recently in Houghton and Ontonagon counties.“We conduct several of these patrols each winter, which allow us opportunities to remind snowmobilers about important safety messages, enforce violations and pull riders who are drinking and driving off the trail,” said Sgt. Marc Pomroy.More
Did you know that if your gut is unhealthy, it can be a roadblock to weight loss – and nutrition? Even if you’re eating healthy, your body can be missing key nutritional elements that don’t make it through your gut.
There are many consequences of having an unhealthy gut. It can cause everything from weight gain and fatigue to anxiety and depression to autoimmune conditions and cancer.Repairing your gut may sound complicated and daunting but the good news is that it can be really very easy. Your gut lining is constantly regenerating and replaces itself entirely every two to three weeks. So I am so thrilled and honored to share with you about Donna Gates, one of the pioneers in nutrition and gut health, and her new 10-day Gut Smart Detox Makeover Program.The program is simple, easy to follow and includes daily menus (which are a special combination of healthy meals and probiotic shakes to build good bacteria in your gut), LIVE coaching support and so much more.More
Most people are shocked when I share that heart disease is the number one killer of women, outpacing breast cancer, diabetes and stroke. In fact, 1 in 4 women will now receive a heart disease diagnosis in their lifetime.1 in 4 women….I want YOU to really take this in and think about that incredible statistic.Women experience A FAR DIFFERENT set of heart disease symptoms than men. Yet, most major studies conducted on heart disease have favored male participants. And, women MUST receive different protocols for prevention, diagnosis and treatment.More
I love giving my patients and Health Hero community the solutions they need to live a happy and healthy life. I was frustrated that, despite treatments, which included expensive medications and procedures, many of my patients were suffering. I also wanted to support my community in sifting through the misleading information and clutter online and share powerful health-related research and solutions. That is why I created my ultimate online health resource: Health Hero Premium Membership. It was important to me to get this powerful health resource into as many people’s hands as possible so that is why I decided to keep the cost low (pennies a day). Through 20 years of research and practice, I created a blueprint for folks to live a life where health and wellness were abundant and now I am excited to share it with you.

There is a newly classified set of metabolic disorders that are being diagnosed at an alarming rate in the last few years (Diabesity = diabetes + obesity). The CDC is reporting that 91% of Americans are at risk for this potentially dangerous set of diseases. That means there is a very high likelihood that you or someone you love could be diagnosed with Diabesity.I connected with Jonathan Bailor, New York Times bestselling author on Facebook LIVE this week where he shared a really interesting story about the 2 weeks he recently spent at The Harvard Medical School meeting with top doctors that are at the forefront of this new epidemic…More
Michigan conservation officers obtained confessions Tuesday from two Upper Peninsula men suspected in separate, unrelated wolf poaching incidents in Ontonagon and Menominee counties.Prosecuting attorneys are reviewing details of the two cases, with decisions on specific charges to be brought expected soon. Gray wolves are a protected species under the Endangered Species Act of 1973 and as such, can only legally be killed in defense of human safety.The names of the men – a 58-year-old from Greenland and a 67-year-old from Menominee Township – are being withheld pending their arraignments in the respective county district courts.“Wolves are examples of important wildlife species that play a critical predator role in the ecosystems of the Upper Peninsula,” said Lt. Ryan Aho, a district law supervisor in Marquette. “Our conservation officers did some great work in obtaining confessions from these two individuals who killed wolves collared for study purposes by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.”On Monday, DNR Wildlife Division personnel said they had received a mortality signal from the collar of an adult female wolf in Ontonagon County. Sgt. Marc Pomroy and DNR Conservation Officer Zach Painter went to the site, which was located off Gardner Road in Greenland Township.“We gathered some information at the scene, and we conducted suspect interviews the following day,” Painter said. “During those discussions, the suspect admitted he shot the animal with a rifle, which we seized as part of the investigation.”In Menominee County, during the firearm deer hunting season, a mortality signal was received from a 1-year-old male wolf on Nov. 19.“I retrieved the collar later that day from a place along River Road in Lake Township,” said DNR Conservation Officer Jeremy Sergey. “The collar was intact, covered in blood, but was not attached to a wolf.”After searching a vast area, and conducting numerous interviews, the officers developed several suspects by the following day.In an interview with conservation officers this week – the same day the confession was obtained in the Ontonagon County case – the man from Menominee Township confessed to killing the wolf. He was one of the original suspects developed in November.The DNR investigates and pursues vigorous prosecution of any wolf poaching cases. Illegally killing a wolf is punishable by up to 90 days in jail, a $1,000 fine, or both, and the cost of prosecution.Suspected poaching violations may be reported 24 hours a day, seven days a week to the DNR’s Report All Poaching hotline at 800-292-7800.Wolves killed in poaching incidents are typically sent to the DNR’s Wildlife Disease Laboratory in Lansing, where necropsies are performed.For more information on wolves, visit Michigan.gov/Wolves.Michigan conservation officers are fully commissioned state peace officers who provide natural resources protection, ensure recreational safety and protect citizens by providing general law enforcement duties and lifesaving operations in the communities they serve.Learn more about Michigan conservation officers at Michigan.gov/ConservationOfficers.
