Question by collegedudesoon: Am I the ONLY Louisiana citizen infuriated at the dismal status of our state?
Our governor and “representatives” continually utter the same tired rhetoric about our “unique culture” and “our spirit” when confronted with questions about Louisiana’s status as a “bottom-of-the-list” state. The abysmal condition of Louisiana (crime, poverty, healthcare, education, quality of life, etc.) isn’t going to be remedied because of our “joie de vie” or our mardi gras parades.

Georgia has just been named in the top 10 for one of the unhealthiest states in the nation. Georgia is ranked No. 6 on the list following just Florida, Nevada, New Mexico, Louisiana, and Mississippi. These rankings were done judging each state on twenty-one different factors ranging from cancer rates to obesity. Georgia has recently leaped into the top ten in the past ten years, with Georgia being 24 sports higher at No. 30 less than ten years ago. Georgia has been ranked fourth in the number new AIDS cases per year, and firth for the number of sexually transmitted diseases. Just these two new statistics it’s enough to send anyone living in the Peach State packing. Besides the spread of STD’s one of the main reasons why people living in the Peach State are considered some of the most unhealthy in the country is because of an unhealthy lifestyle as well as a high-fat diet which is putting a lot of people down south at risk.
High-fat diets are known to have levels much higher than the levels advised by the American Heart Association, which can over time, cause cardiac or heart problems. Problems like there are very serious and can lead to very serious surgeries such as heart bypass surgery. For people who are going to continue to state on their high-fat diets, and even for people who don’t that live in Georgia, it is very important for them to have some type of Georgia Health Insurance. Georgia being one of the most unhealthy states in the nation gives good reason for residents to have a good Georgia Health Insurance plan especially a plan which include well-visit check ups as well as any type of testing or screening that may be important to screen for such serious ailments such as heart disease.
Here few ways that nutritionists recommend that residents of Georgia can change their lifestyle in order to become more healthy. One of the easiest ways is to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into your life. Fruits and vegetables are relatively inexpensive and they are also very good for you, when purchasing fruits and vegetables remember that the darker the fruit or vegetable, the better it will be for you. This is because the darker it is the more nutrients it will hold. Also, eating raw vegetables such as tomato, or lettuce is better for you than cooking them because they will retain all of the nutrients they are grown with, opposed to cooking or frying them which may lead to decrease in amount of nutrients.
Another way that residents of Georgia can become more healthy and safe is by purchasing Georgia health insurance. There are more than 45 million people across the country with health insurance, and many of those people are located in Georgia. Having some type of Georgia Health Insurance is imperative for residents to live a happy and stress-free lifestyle.

One of the fastest growing counties in the nation, Marion County Florida is quickly becoming a viable investment option for those looking for an alternative to costly, crowded major Florida cities. With less than 70,000 residents, the county has nearly quadrupled to a population of 250,000. For the past few years the county has consistently ranked as one of the three fastest growing areas in the nation while still maintaining a diverse community where country life still dominates some areas. Comprised of five different vastly different cities, Marion County boasts a well-preserved history coupled with the vitality of a major metropolis.
Even with its continuous growth, Marion County remains affordable. Modern single-family new homes are priced from $120,000 up, while brand new apartment complexes offer monthly rates starting at just $570/ month. Local developers have caught onto the recent trend of building gated communities, but, like other Marion County real estate, home prices in these luxury communities remain affordable. In fact, in 2000 the National Association of Realtors named Marion County’s Ocala as having the third most affordable housing in the nation.
Ocala, the seat of county government, is by far the largest city within the county and was recently named one of the top 50 small metropolitan areas in the country by Inc. Magazine. Ocala also boasts the second highest real estate appreciation rate in the nation at 25.9%, just behind the recovering Baton Rouge, Louisiana. But the region is not shaping up to be an industrial, urban smog kingdom; the air quality (91.2%) is 20 percentage points higher than the average of CNN’s top ten places to live. And the city is surrounded by historic districts, a national forest, and Florida’s second largest artesian spring.
Among the many nature-based attractions is Marion County’s equestrian industry. In 1999 the U.S. Department of Agriculture named Marion County the “Horse Capital of the World” due to its number of horses in residence exceeding everywhere else in the country and praised its near 50 different breeds. Equestrian enthusiasts can seek employment in the county’s massive thoroughbred industry that employs 29,000 Marion County residents. However, if you keep you with the times and modern culture interests you, the technology industry is also thriving. And the construction industry is one of the quickest in the state, issuing over 200 building permits each month. The new industries mark significant progress from an economy based solely on agriculture just thirty years ago.
At 3.79 million square miles (9.83 million km²) and with more than 300 million people, the United States is the third or fourth largest country by total area, and third largest by land area and by population. The United States is one of the world’s most ethnically diverse nations, the product of large-scale immigration from many countries.

Her real name is Cycalona Gowen because she was born during a tropical storm. Clonie grew up in Kiowa, Oklahoma and played sports in high school. She ranked seventh in the high jump in track and field and was also a championship-level basketball player. She had looks as well as skill in sports and the pretty young blonde won the Miss Teen McAlester crown in Oklahoma at age fifteen.
Clonie is a divorced mother of two and lives in Dallas, Texas. Her older child, a daughter, lives with her first husband and she is raising her second child, a son, who is a product of her second marriage.
She learned poker while in her teens and became more skillful after her first divorce when she would drive to Shreveport, Louisiana to play in the casinos. Clonie began to win several hundred dollars each weekend which soon became a steady income and decided she could earn more money as a gambler then working at her travel agency business to play poker full time and finds this world much more to her liking.
She became known to the public after finishing tenth in the 2002 Costa Rica Classic. The following year, she beat five of the world’s best women players – including Annie Duke and Jennifer Harman – at WPTs Ladies Night which was an event that was made for television.
Some of Clonie’s poker-related activities:
• Appeared on Good Morning America
• Mentioned in the New York Times, Dallas Observer, Texas Monthly, Esquire Magazine
• Guest appearances on Ultimate Poker Challenge in Las Vegas and European World Poker Championship in Dublin, Ireland
• Writes a regular Question and Answer column for WSOP Bluff Magazine
• Member of the Board of Directors of the United States Poker Association
Clonie Gowan is a member of the team of poker experts on FullTilt.com, Howard Lederer’s website, which include the following notables:
• Chris Ferguson
• Jennifer Harman
• Erick Lindgren
• Mike Matusow
• Phil Ivey
• John Juanda
• Phil Gordon
• Erik Seidel
• Andy Bloch
She is now a partner in a poker school teaching the basics of tournament play to women and men. She states the aim of the school is to instruct her students “How to be successful in a competitive game where your own money is at stake.” Additionally, she is writing a book “Good Girls Do Make the Final table”, which is scheduled to be printed by Harcourt Brace and is due out some time in 2006.
Unlike most other well-known poker players who are open about their winnings, Clonie, “The New Face of Poker”, is vague about her finances.
She also is involved in charities where she is a frequent host and does a great deal of volunteer work. At the Whisper Walk in Dallas to help victims of ovarian cancer, Clonie – whose mother is a survivor of this disease – was a very much appreciated guest speaker.
Clonie Gowan is considered a midlevel poker professional and has high public visibility. However, her name did not appear in Card Player magazine’s rankings and she has thus far not finished at the final table of any important tournament.
