Tightness in the shoulders, when severe, can
greatly interfere with your quality of life. 'Stress"
is often blamed, but if this were the case
then everyone would have tight shoulders!
The truth is that muscles in the shoulders
(and the rest of the body) are just
slaves - they do what they are told by
the nerves that control them. When the
nerves that pass through the spine are
working normally, free of interference,
the muscles they control are relaxed,
only contracting when told to do so.
However, when bones of the spine become
misaligned, irritating the nerves, these
muscles tighten uncontrollably. Over time,
these muscles become damaged and
sore. Chiropractors work to restore
proper alignment and motion of
the spine so that nerve function
is restored. Thousands of people
every day find relief from their
shoulder tightness and regain
a sense of wellbeing from safe,
natural chiropractic care.

Another top album
Artist: Dolly Parton
Label: Dolly Records
Parton has still got
the talent which
made her a star.

With an outstanding achieve-
ment of 41 releases to her name,
Parton has consistently released
great albums throughout her
Better Day is her latest feature,
and is an excellent product filled
with many great country songs.
Surprisingly, Parton's age is defi-
nitely not restricting her voice.
The content is 100 per cent orig-
inal and the songs are all unique
and productive in their structures.
Better Day is a feel-good album;
the songs are sung in true country
spirit and the lyrics tend to focus on
an optimistic outlook of a hard
Parton's country-girl personality
shows through her music. Many
songs have an assertive attitude
about them, especially in Country
Is as Country Does and Get Out
and Stay Out.
This is part of the reason why
Parton has enjoyed so much suc-
cess -- her fans can relate to the
hardship and personal experien-
ces she shares through her music.
There are many great country
songs on Better Day; some are fast
paced rock 'n' roll, and others are
slower emotional love ballads with
powerful progressions. Parton has
achieved an amazing run of suc-
cess over the years in an industry
that is constantly changing.
Her songwriting ability compli-
ments her natural vocal flair,
which makes her one of the
greatest female country artists of
In comparison to other "old"
rock 'n' roll icons who are still
around (like Neil Young or Bob
Dylan), she sure hasn't lost any
talents as a vocalist over the years.
AUSTRALIAN CINEMA'S MIDDLE EAST
For the next month, Arc Cinema looks at the 90 years of Australian cinema
connections between our nation and the societies and cultures of the
Middle East, beginning with the films of Frank Hurley and ending in the era
of 9/11. Whether looking at the presence of Australian troops in Iraq and
Afghanistan, the arrival of refugees from the region, the increasingly visible
presence of Islamic belief and social custom, or episodes of communal
tension and resentment in our big cities, these issues and themes have
generated some of the best work of veteran documentarians. They've also
drawn out new talent, often filmmakers themselves from an Arab-immigrant
