Carotid artery dissection. It’s one of the most common causes of stroke in younger adults. And while you might not associate the word “stroke” with younger patients, the condition – if not treated immediately – could lead to paralysis and even death. Lindsey Singh can attest to the importance of immediacy. The 31-year-old mother of two from Flanders experienced vision disturbances in her right eye during a spin class on April 7, 2017. “I knew right away something wasn’t right,” says ...

Dad in the Box

Warning! Nothing you read here will spoil Avengers: Infinity Wars because I didn’t understand it. As a vibrant, relevant, totally hip and “with it” dad I am proud to say that I have now seen every movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  All nineteen of them.

Too much time between movies. Too many movie credits to sit ...

For All the Dollars

          By the mid 70s, Italian studios were moving onto different trends, like giallo horror, poliziotteschi crime, and macaroni war. For those that still produced spaghetti westerns, the rule of the day was comedy. Yet, some directors weren't ready to hang up their colt pistols.

Corre, no camines (that’s “run, don’t walk!”) to see Coco, the newest animated feature film from Pixar Animation Studios/Disney. This beautiful movie is something that families will cherish seeing together. Like Moana last year, I took my family (ages 7 to 70+) to see Coco over Thanksgiving weekend, and everyone was delighted by the splendor of this wonderful cinematic experience. Coco tells the story of a young boy named Miguel who yearns to be a musician, although he comes from a long line of shoemakers who not ...

Your Family Matters

Overparenting.  It’s the new buzzword for helicopter parenting, enabling and micromanaging.  I did them all. I’m happy to say that I’ve (mostly) grown out of it.  The truth is that there are still moments when I have the urge to step in and take over.  It’s normal to feel that way; however, I know I’ve made progress when I feel the urge and don’t act on it. When children are very young, it’s not so bad.  After all, they need to be guided, nurtured and protected.  As ...
