Post Malone Becomes A Dentist For A Day

Post Malone is having some fun, putting on his dentist gear and checking out his friend’s teeth on Instagram.

One month after getting a tattoo during his dentist appointment, Post Malone is turning heads again for dentistry-related reasons.

The rapper’s team has been quietly teasing his next studio album, which is expected to arrive before the end of the year and, during his downtime, Post Malone has just been fooling around and having some fun.

Posted up with some of his friends, Post’s dentist must have been in the room because, somehow, the recording artist got hold of an entire dental binocular set, which he put on his head before going to work on one of his buddies’ grills.

“You floss these fucking teeth or what?” joked Post Malone after peering into his boy’s mouth. “Come on!”

Maybe, if music ends up going downhill for him (which,

Ask a Doc: Now that I wear a face mask every day, I’ve noticed that I have been breaking out. What can I do to help my skin? | Harbin

A weekly column addressing your most sought-after health questions, answered by Harbin Clinic’s expert healthcare professionals

Question: Now that I wear a face mask every day, I’ve noticed that I have been breaking out. What can I do to help my skin?

Dr. Jonathan Pewitt: Wearing a face mask is likely to be part of your daily wardrobe. Face coverings play a crucial role in reducing exhaled air particles and slowing the spread of COVID-19. However, your skin may be experiencing some pesky side effects, such as redness, acne and facial irritation. By practicing effective facial hygiene, you can help curb those breakouts while still wearing a mask and protecting those around you.

Masks provide an important layer of protection. However, when not washed or cleaned properly, they can clog pores and flare acne. While there are a variety of reasons breakouts occur, the top two as it relates

A visit to the DMV and the dentist in the same day | Opinion

If you are thinking of a perfect Tuesday, I am guessing you do it by starting with a visit to the DMV, and then close with a visit to the dentist.

Yes, this was my recent Tuesday, when I had these two delightful events bookend my day.

I wouldn’t have normally planned it this way. My dentist appointment had been set for many months. And my DMV visit was dictated by living in a pandemic world. I had to get a replacement for an expired plate, so I had to actually go into the DMV, for which you need to set an appointment.

In pre-pandemic times, I usually just do a drop-in at the DMV. I live right around the corner from one, so I zip over at various times, gauge the line, and if it’s a problem, I just come back another time. But these are not

How to watch MLB Opening Day online, on TV

After over four months of waiting, Giants baseball that counts is back.

Opening Night is here, and after the New York Yankees and Washington Nationals face off first, the Giants and ace Johnny Cueto will take the field against the rival Los Angeles Dodgers. Dodgers star Clayton Kershaw was scratched with back stiffness and has been placed on the Injured List, so the Dodgers will start Dustin May on the bump. 

The coronavirus pandemic forced the MLB to suspend and eventually abbreviate the 2020 season to just 60 games. Numerous health and safety protocols are in effect, including the schedule being confined to just regional action, so the Giants only will go up against teams in the NL and AL West during the regular season.

Both of tonight’s Opening Night games will be televised on ESPN, but you still can see “Giants Pregame Live” on NBC Sports Bay Area beginning

US deaths surpass 1,000 for second straight day, jobless claims rise for first time since March; baseball is back

The daily U.S. death toll surpassed 1,000 for the second straight day and hospitalizations were again peaking as the paralyzing coronavirus pandemic showed little sign of easing Thursday.

The Johns Hopkins University data dashboard reported 1,195 U.S. deaths Wednesday, high by standards of recent weeks but still only half of the daily toll during the outbreak’s deadly peak in the spring. The Covid Tracking Project, however, showed almost 60,000 people are currently hospitalized, less than 200 short of the highest totals from April. 

The Labor Department reported Thursday that 1.4 million people filed intial applications for unemployment benefits last week, the first weekly increase since March.

Major League Baseball was providing a silver lining, opening its season Thursday. The virus-shortened season comes almost four months late and minus fans in the stands. The Washington Nationals, last year’s World Series champs, were hosting the venerable New York Yankees – with the

US deaths surpass 1,000 for second straight day, hospitalizations near record; baseball is back but not the fans

The daily U.S. death toll surpassed 1,000 for the second straight day and hospitalizations were again peaking as the paralyzing coronavirus pandemic showed little sign of easing Thursday.

Day cares welcome mask-wearing toddlers as parents struggle to ‘make best decision’ in COVID-19 world

Sam DeRoze is almost 4 years old. After years of nanny care, he’s supposed to dive into his first organized school experience this fall. But the coronavirus pandemic has his mother mulling.

“I’ll need to see the plan from his preschool before I decide,” says Dianne DeRoze, a business consultant in Leesburg, Virginia. “If it’s safe and a positive experience, that’s valuable. What I don’t want is for him to have a knee-jerk reaction that school is this scary place you get dumped.”

DeRoze is among the millions of parents grappling with sending their children to preschool and babies to day care as cases of COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus, spike nationally.

The debate continues to rage among politicians and school officials on fall reopening plans. New York Mayor Bill de Blasio announced last week that the city would be providing day care for 100,000 children to help

Day 1 and day 100 of my 100 push-ups a day challenge.
Day 1 and day 100 of my 100 push-ups a day challenge.

Rachel Hosie/Insider

  • Around the start of the UK’s coronavirus lockdown in March, I decided to start doing 100 push-ups a day to maintain my strength and fitness without the gym, and I ultimately decided to complete 100 days.

  • I broke my daily 100 up into sets of 10, done on the hour every hour, but this was a lot harder to stick to at weekends.

  • I started noticing physical change about halfway through, and by the time I completed the challenge last week, I couldn’t believe how much more defined my upper body was looking.

  • The hardest part of the challenge ended up being mental rather than physical, although I have got really good at push-ups now.

Florida Shatters Single-Day Record with Over 11,450 New Coronavirus Cases in Single Day

Florida has once again shattered its single-day record for coronavirus cases, reporting 11,458 new cases of the respiratory illness on Saturday.

The Florida Department of Health has now reported a total of 190,052 confirmed coronavirus cases and 3,702 deaths, the Orlando Sentinel reported. On July 4, there were 18 new fatalities in the state.

Two weeks ago, on June 19, Florida reported 3,822 new cases of coronavirus — the highest single-day number at the time. Still, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has said that the state will not be reeling in its efforts to reopen the economy.

“We’re not going back, closing things,” he said on Wednesday. “I don’t think that that’s really what’s driving it. People going to a business is not what’s driving it. I think when you see the younger folks — I think a lot of it is more just social interactions, so that’s natural.”
