Can I really get a dental implant in ...

By Dr. Vladimir Pastouk, Dental & Cosmetic Solutions
Q: I have seen ads touting dental implants that are done in one day. Can I really have a new tooth in one day?
A: Although the implant itself is done in one day, the preparation of the bone, integrating the implant so that it fuses with the bone, and the healing of the tissue usually takes three to six months. For some patients who do not have enough bone volume, bone grafting might be necessary, which increases the required healing time.
There are certain things we do not have control over, such as the physiology of our bodies, so the time varies from patient to patient.
Healing is the key to a successful d ...

Rock Hall honors Everly Brothers

By Jay Minkin, Minkin's Music
If you look at the rock and roll timeline, The Everly Brothers influenced artists from The Beatles to the present day Milk Carton Kids. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum will be honoring them this month as part of its 19th Annual Music Masters Series, with several educational events leading up to the big tribute concert at the State Theatre.   
With Don singing the melody and brother Phil harmonizing above, the 1986 Rock HOF inductees’ close-mic harmony style was both emotional and mysterious back in 1957. The hit singles “Bye, Bye, Love,” “Wake Up Little Susie,” and “All I have to Do Is Dre ...

By Adrienne Greben, Cruise Planners/American Express Travel
Think a cruise just isn't for you? There is truly something for everyone.
Think a cruise is out of reach for you? You'll be amazed at the remarkable value for your money.
A cruise has the highest satisfaction rating and the highest repeat rate of any vacation option out there. The old saying, “Cruising is only for the newly wed, well bred, over fed, and nearly dead” couldn't be further from the truth.
Sensationalized media and irresponsible journalism have tried to deter people from taking cruises. Lots of urban legends and myths exist, such as the ideas that you'll be confined or get ...

Should you microchip your pet?

By Dr. Jeffrey Peacock, Crossroads Animal Hospital
I read an article in the paper last week about Gidget, a Jack Russell terrier that went missing from her home near Philadelphia and ended up in Oregon four months later. It remains a mystery as to how she got to Oregon, but the big question is, how did she ever get reunited with her family in Pennsylvania? 
The answer is a microchip that had been implanted under Gidget’s skin when she was a puppy. Workers at a shelter near Portland were able to identify her when they used a scanner and found the microchip. The shelter contacted the manufacturer, PetLink, which, in turn, contacted her family.
PetLink is p ...

How fused is food fusion?

By Franko Boffice
Owner, D’Agnese’s Other Place
Sometimes it can be difficult to keep track of where your food originated from, ethnicity-wise, thanks to food fusion. Here is a little history on some common dishes served in U.S.-based Italian and American restaurants, so that next time you pick up one of these dishes, you’ll know where it came from.
Caesar salad is credited to an Italian immigrant, Caesar Cardini, who owned and operated restaurants in the United States and Mexico. According to his daughter, Rosa, Caesar came up with the idea to create this salad combo in 1924, when a large July 4 crowd came in and food supplies ended up running out. Caesa ...
