The next No Pressure Blood Pressure will be held on Friday, February 14th. Important reasons not to miss the next screening:

1. 65 million Americans have hypertension (high blood pressure)

2. Many people don't even know their blood pressure is high because there are no symptoms in most cases

3. Hypertension can lead to heart disease, stroke, heart failure, and kidney disease

4. 66% of those IC employees measured at the last screening were pre-hypertensive   (above ideal )

5. A 20 point increase in systolic blood pressure (top number) or a 10 point increase in diastolic blood pressure (bottom number) doubles the risk of heart disease.

6. Poor diet, inactivity, and being overweight can lead to an increase in blood pressure

7. If one does not adopt a healthy lifestyle, the hypertensive individual will need to take costly medication with potential side effects

8. Physical and emotional stress can elevate your blood pressure

17th Annual Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival

March 31-April 6, 2014 Ithaca New York USA

2014 Festival Theme:  

DISSONANCE   http://www.ithaca.edu/fleff  

Dissonance:  Clash. Tension. Disharmony. Disequilibrium. Contradiction. Restlessness. Irresolution. Imbalance.  

Neither noise nor cacophony, dissonance pairs together the incompatible with results that surprise, offend, invite, disturb and excite, spurring action and creativity.  

Dissonance sparks and ignites.  

Think of dissonance as the endless clashing of notes and chords in musical dissonance, of ideas in cognitive dissonance, of systems of life in cultural dissonance, of words in poetic dissonance.  

FLEFF: A DIFFERENT ENVIRONMENT
