A Reason To Smile

How often do you floss? This is a question I ask all of my patients because the area just between your teeth comprises about 30-40% of the tooth surface. That is a lot of surface area not to remove harmful bacteria from. Your toothbrush cannot reach between your teeth to remove the bacteria that may damage the tooth and its supporting structures, the bone and the tissue. Additionally, since the area between your teeth is not exposed, it creates an area of protection for bacteria and provides a warm, dark place which is a perfect ...

Bottle Service

    In December of 1776, Revolutionary War soldiers numbering approximately 3,000 were camped at the Loantaka Encampment, located in the fields near the intersection of Woodland Road and Treadwell Avenue. During that time many of them found quarters in local farm houses and were invited to have breakfast with the owners. At one house the table was replenished seven times for hungry officers. Records show that Mrs. Anna Kitchel provided free rooms for twelve soldiers, but was not happy when an officer brought 40 ...

When it comes to accurately diagnosing whether someone has suffered a stroke, “one can never be too smart,” says Dr. Gary Belt. Belt, a stroke neurologist at Atlantic Neuroscience Institute in Overlook Medical Center, has more than three decades of experience in making those tricky diagnoses. He knows that superficial signs that seem to indicate a stroke can’t always be trusted and that a stroke neurologist must think like a detective. In a presentation he titled “Stroke Mimics,” Belt recently spoke to a ...

Madison's 'Academic Journey'

Deciding to focus on the SAT or on the ACT is the first decision most 11th graders need to make as they began their college admission testing journey.  With the redesign in March 2016, the SAT changed to a curriculum based test.  With these changes the two tests became so similar that students no longer need to worry about which test is best for them! This summer the staff at Academic Journeys studied the results of the three actual sittings of the new SAT.  Our analysis led us to develop a new combined ACT/ SAT test prep ...

investorsBank Economic Outlook

Millennials dominate all the talk about economic trends. Given their size, that makes sense.  As Millennials age, their preferences will help drive the business decisions of much of the economy.  Knowing what they want will be a major concern for decades to come. Like every generation before them, Millennials have their own identity, formed by their age and the economic opportunities they are afforded.  And, as always, their tastes, demand for goods and services, housing preferences, marriage and family formation patterns, ...
