I agree. I, too, donate to the charities of my choice. However, I fail to see the purpose of "awareness" weeks/months. Who on this planet is unaware of the existence of cancer, for example.. Take the money that is spent on ads, ribbons, announcements, etc. and donate that to charity.
If anybody is on here that lives in Anderson, sc PLEASE look in here. IMPORTANT QUESTION!!!?
Hmm? Looks like maybe one of the practice warnings issued by all the NWS offices as part of the Severe Weather Awareness Week might of went out as a real warning. Or maybe somebody in the media saw a practice warning and thought it was real one and activated the an alert manually. This was based on the fact that your state, South Carolina, just ended the annual Severe Weather Awareness Week...which usually includes issuing practice warnings in part for local emergency officials to test their alertness. The following were taken from one public notice issued by one of the NWS office in your state.

So it was only a test.
Is it common to experience depression when you start practicing yoga?
It is not unusual, but necessarily common, for it to stir up various emotions (some labeled "bad" like sadness/despair).
One key distinction that makes yoga different from other exercise is its emphasis on developing inner awareness (which if a person decides not to do, makes yoga pretty much just another exercise).
The word yoga is often defined as "union," and a perfect example of that definition is idea that the body and mind are linked.
Thus, certain physical actions can have an mental/emotional result, and, vice versa.
