11:08 pm
ukraine it certainly is a bittersweet one. many people here are going to be celebrating on the way down but at the same time they see the situation in the east of the country and for many of them they have bitter feelings about what is going on. if you look at the perspective from the ukraine. on the other hand also towards the military leadership of this country and the way that it has been prosecuting that campaign which they call an anti-terror operation. as far as the actual military situation, we do have some new numbers that we just got in from the ukrainian military. they say that the cease fire was infringed upon 15 times.

i'm angela and i quit smoking with chantix. my children always wanted me to quit smoking but i resigned myself to the fact that it wasn't going to work. but chantix helped me do it. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. it gave me the power to overcome the urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. some people had seizures while taking chantix. if you have any of these stop chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of mental health problems, which could get worse while taking chantix or history of seizures. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you develop these stop chantix and see your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have a history of heart or blood vessel problems or develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. common side effects include nausea trouble sleeping and unusual dreams. i'm a non-smoker.
11:13 pm
ask your doctor if chantix is right for you. you know... ...there's a more enjoyable way to get your fiber. try phillips fiber good gummies. they're delicious... and a good source of fiber to help support regularity. mmmm these are good! the tasty side of fiber. from phillips.
