Welcome to the September 30, 2007 edition of living a real life.

This is another massive carnival with so many submissions that it is getting difficult to manage. I will only accept one submission for each carnival from now on so that they are not swallowed up in the crowd.

Thank you to everyone who has made this carnival so great. I appreciate your support and I hope it brings you many new readers.

There are articles on a myriad of topics here, so make sure that you spend quality time reading them. There are little gems tucked away in here and who knows that one of these might have a positive impact on your life.

GrrlScientist presents Today is World Suicide Prevention Day posted at Living the Scientific Life, saying, "Suicide is a major public health issue and accounts for nearly 3% of all deaths worldwide -- around the world, one million people will die by suicide this year. But suicide is a taboo subject that many people, regardless of age, sex, socioeconomic status or religious and cultural affiliations, are ashamed of, and rarely speak about. This veil of secrecy leads to needless deaths worldwide. So as a result, today was designated as World Suicide Prevention Day, which is designed to raise public awareness of suicide, to encourage discussion and to increase understanding about it."
