If you have a loved one experiencing dementia, Idaho State University’s Continuing Education and Workforce Training is offering courses targeted on gaining a greater understanding of the symptoms and behaviors of dementia.

“After taking this course, people will have tools in their toolbox to effectively handle some of the behaviors their loved one displays,” Joanne Trammel, occupational therapist and one of the course’s instructors, said. “They will have resources for immediate help in crisis situations, support groups, etc. They will walk away knowing that having dementia does not have to be a stigma or something to be ashamed of but rather a challenge to overcome and now they have ways to handle the challenge better.”

Maybe during this time you’ve picked up a new hobby, possibly inspired by our article from a few months ago about some fun titles to get you interested in video games. You're not alone. In fact, a third of all Americans have been playing more games.

Did you know there’s a way to make a little extra money by playing video games?

The banjo gets a bad reputation. People dismiss the instrument as a cheaper version of the guitar, meant only for rednecks who live next to the bayou and live off catfish while wrestling ‘gators. However, the banjo is more than just a guitar with some twang.
