Rethinking the Science of Skin

frank lampard

When my sister and I were young, we liked to come home from school and turn on “Guiding Light,” a soap opera on CBS. We only ever caught the last fifteen minutes of the hour-long show, but, because it wasn’t particularly subtle, this was plenty of time to follow even its most involved plotlines—such as when Reva Shayne, a nine-times-married character who had arcs as a talk-show host, a psychic, the princess of a fictional island, and a time traveller to the Civil War and Nazi Germany, had to fight Dolly, a devious clone that her most recent husband had made of her in order to spare her children from grief during the most recent of her presumed deaths.

“Guiding Light” began, in 1937, as a radio show to promote a soap called Duz. (“Duz does everything.”) When it went off the air, in 2009, it was the longest-running show

Protesters call for district action on Medicine Crow principal over social media use | Local News

frank lampard

The posts gained attention after being highlighted by the Facebook page for Not In Our Town Billings, a group with 3,000-plus followers that advocates for progressive causes and in particular against hate speech.

Cara Auch, a parent of two Medicine Crow students, said she was troubled by the lack of response from district officials after Upham’s initial comments, especially with the start of school looming.

“I don’t know if I’m sending (my kids) to school here or if I’m switching schools,” she said.

On Friday, Upham said the investigation was “nearing completion of the process.” Hofmann has not been placed on leave, he said, and is currently serving as Medicine Crow’s principal.

Hofmann has received support from some Billings educators. 

Billings Catholic Schools superintendent Shaun Harrington, who previously worked alongside Hofmann in several administrative roles in School District 2, sent an email of support to SD2 trustees.

How to get a permit to hold fitness class in Philadelphia parks

frank lampard

Summers in Philadelphia have long offered plenty of options for outdoor fitness. But this year, the push outside runs deeper than the views, thanks to COVID-19 risks that make group workouts risky unless you are outdoors and distanced. 

But beware: that athleisure-clad yoga squad you see sweating up your neighborhood park may be violating city regulations.  

The city has issued only 13 permits for outdoor recreation and athletics — for both youth and adult activities — since July 6 when the city moved into the green phase and began issuing permits again. 

While the city anticipates processing at least another dozen permits this month, the total number still represents a steep reduction from pre-coronavirus times when more than 200 permits was the norm for a summer season. It also doesn’t capture the full scope of city park usage as people look to recreate the studio experience out of doors.

What to Know Before You Go to the Dentist During COVID-19

frank lampard

A visit to the dentist has always been a nerve-racking experience for many people. But going to the dentist during COVID-19 elicits a new kind of fear. Social distancing and mask-wearing—the two most important actions you can take to prevent the spread of COVID-19—are impossible when you’re in the dentist’s chair.

The good news: To date, there have not been any clusters of COVID-19 cases reported in dental settings or among dental health care personnel, per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The caveat: We don’t yet have any data to assess the risk of transmitting coronavirus during a dentist visit.

So what should you do with that information (or lack thereof), especially if you’re due for a cleaning?

We asked the experts—American Dental Association spokesperson Cheryl Watson-Lowry, DDS, owner of Watson and Watson Dental Association in Chicago, and Pia Lieb, DDS, founder of Cosmetic Dentistry Center NYC—whether

frank lampard

DENVER — The federal $600 weekly supplement to unemployment insurance is set to expire on August 1, leaving millions of Americans with uncertain financial futures.

“The restaurant industry was already pretty unstable. A lot of us never really had savings because the pay is not great and now a lot of us don’t have healthcare,” said Elise Dantzler, who was laid off from a restaurant when Gov. Polis ordered all restaurants and bars to close in March. “It has impacted pretty much everyone I know.”

Now, with the CARES ACT federal benefit set to expire, there are few financial options for many who were let go from the struggling restaurant industry.

“It is terrifying, honestly,” explained Dantzler. “There are so many things going on and to not have that security of knowing where your next paycheck is coming from

Galaxy Watch 3: All the fitness features Samsung promised for its next smartwatch

frank lampard



Samsung announced the new Galaxy Watch 3 at its online Unpacked event Wednesday alongside the new Galaxy Note 20 phones and its latest foldable phone, the Galaxy Z Fold 2. The newly unveiled Galaxy Watch 3 has the same sleek look and large, circular screen as the original Galaxy Watch, with all the fitness features of the 2019 Galaxy Watch Active 2. There’s also the promise of advanced health features like an FDA-cleared electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) and blood oxygen (SpO2) monitoring. But not all of these will be rolling out right away. 



The Galaxy Watch 3 brings back the physical rotating bezel from the original Galaxy Watch and the Gear line before it, except the edges of the bezel are now smoother. This dial can be used to control the interface without touching the screen. 

That’s probably the biggest, and arguably only, difference between the

Arizona Cosmetic Dentist Dr. John Badolato Speaks On Selecting The Right Career Path

Dr. Badolato emphasizes that having many conversations with professionals was the key to getting where he is today.

COVID-19 unemployment checks in jeopardy, Bay Area lawmaker works to supplement payments for Californians

frank lampard

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (KRON) – Millions of Americans are set to lose unemployment benefits when the “CARES” Act expires in just days.

A new proposal from Republican Senators would extend the benefit but cut the payment to just $200 a week, down from $600.

The additional $600 a week unemployment payments are set to expire on Friday, unless a deal is reached by lawmakers in Washington. 

“The last thing we should do is exacerbate that problem just because the feds won’t act,” Assemblymember Phil Ting, D-California, said. 

If the federal government doesn’t act, San Francisco Democrat State Assemblymember Phil Ting says he and his colleagues in the state legislature are putting together a plan of their own.

“We think we could potentially extend unemployment benefits at a state level,” Ting said. 

According to the outline for the California legislature’s joint economic stimulus plan, it would fill in the gaps in
