The Best Fashion Items 'Glamour' Editors Bought in 2018 - Glamour

Image
Any time I need to make a new purchase, I do what any self-respecting editor would before clicking “Add to Cart”: I crowdsource the Glamour team for recommendations. Whether I’m looking for new jeans or a new lipstick, they have never led me astray—in fact, I’m happy to report that my favorite purchases of 2018 have all come with an enthusiastic endorsement from my colleagues. I usually like to then pay this love forward, recommending these products to friends (who will usually love them, too.) With a little bit left in the year, I thought I’d poll the Glamour team about the best things they’ve bought in the past 12 months, in case you, too, are still looking for something new to be obsessed with. Their endorsements will be enough to make you grab your wallet and give your own thumbs-up to everything on our list. Check out the items that earned Glamour editors’ five-star reviews in 2018, ahead. http://bit.ly/2BPZhKO

14 Times Celebrities Were Mom-Shamed in 2018 for Ridiculous Reasons - Allure Magazine

Image
It's hard enough being a mother without being in the public eye and, consequently, facing the inevitable wrath of judgmental onlookers who have the audacity to publicly criticize complete strangers for their parenting practices. Often thinly disguised as concern for the celebrities' children, the harsh words are typically about harmless choices and personal preferences, like letting a boy wear his hair long or not breastfeeding the way a commenter thinks the celebrity should. Sometimes the flak isn't even focused on the kids, yet somehow social media can turn a celebrity's makeup or nails into a child-rearing controversy. While no celebrity mom is impervious to shaming, it seems to happen to the Kardashian-Jenner clan far more than most. They make multiple appearances on the list below, and not only is this list not exhaustive, it doesn't go back past 2018. (The mom-shamers have been coming for the Kardashians for years .) And they're in good company: Victoria

Glaucoma, the 'sneak thief of sight' | Local - News Item

Image
Central Susquehanna Sight Services uses the month of January to inform people about glaucoma. Glaucoma is often known as the “sneak thief of sight” because there is rarely any indication that you have the disease until it is in the advanced stages. There are more than 3 million Americans, who are over the age of 40 who have been diagnosed with glaucoma. Glaucoma is the second leading causes of blindness, with cataracts being the leading cause. Glaucoma develops when there is an increase of pressure within the eye, resulting from an accumulation of the fluid that naturally circulates in the eye. There are two types of glaucoma: primary open angle glaucoma and angle glaucoma. Primary open angle glaucoma affects more than three times the people that angle glaucoma does. The pressure restricts the flow of blood to the optic nerve, thus damaging its ability to function and causing loss of vision. Peripheral or side vision is the first thing to deteriorate, that is why it is never notic

Benefits of Turmeric Curcumin for Inflammatory Orbital Pseudotumor - Care2.com

Image
In 1989, ophthalmologists in India found that eyedrops made from the spice turmeric (known as haridra in India) seemed to work just as well as antibiotic eyedrops in the treatment of conjunctivitis, or pink eye. So, researchers decided to give turmeric a try against more serious inflammatory eye diseases like uveitis, which blinds tens of thousands of Americans every year. Uveitis is often an autoimmune or infectious inflammation of the central structures in the eye. Steroids, given to knock down people’s immune systems, are the standard treatment, but they also carry a slew of side effects. Researchers tried giving uveitis sufferers oral supplements of curcumin, the yellow pigment in turmeric thought to be responsible in part for the spice’s anti-inflammatory effects. Eighteen patients were given curcumin alone, and every one improved, showing “efficacy…comparable to corticosteroid therapy,” but without any side effects. A larger, follow-up study was similarly encouraging. A to

Frank Martin: Redshirting an option for injured South Carolina guard - The State

South Carolina’s starting point guard for a three-game stretch of the non-conference season could be a freshman again next year. USC coach Frank Martin said Sunday that T.J. Moss, who’s been sidelined for two weeks with a high ankle sprain, is exploring the possibility of a redshirt.  “Redshirting is on the table right now,” Martin said. “We’re in those talks.” Moss was injured in practice prior to USC’s loss to Virginia on Dec. 19 . The rookie could be out six to eight weeks. Martin labeled the injury a “severe high ankle sprain.” Moss’ cast was recently removed, leading to a reevaluation. $20 for 365 Days of Unlimited Digital Access Last chance to take advantage of our best offer of the year!

Does Marijuana Really Help Treat Glaucoma? | Health & Wellness - Cape May County Herald

Image
Medical marijuana is a popular treatment for a variety of maladies. Glaucoma, a disease of the optic nerve which can lead to vision loss and blindness, is often understood to be one of them. But while medical marijuana maintains several therapeutic uses, it is ineffective in the management of glaucoma. Glaucoma is treated with medicated eyedrops to lower the pressure within the eye. Marijuana can also lower this pressure. The problem is that marijuana also lowers blood pressure. This can have negative effects on the optic nerve, the structure damaged by the high pressure in glaucoma. Another problem with marijuana is the pressure lowering effect lasts only three to four hours. This short duration means that a user needs to consume the drug about six to eight times a day to effectively keep eye pressure low. Unfortunately, the same ingredient in marijuana that lowers eye pressure also produces a high. For most people, controlling their glaucoma with a mind and mood alter

Structural thinning may precede microvascular changes in early glaucoma - Healio

Image
Both ganglion cell complex density and macular vessel density significantly decrease in preperimetric and early primary open-angle glaucoma. However, ganglion cell complex loss is greater than macular vessel density loss in early primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG), according to a study. Although this suggest that microvascular changes may be secondary to structural thinning in early glaucoma, this inference “cannot be generalized to all glaucoma cases,” according to the authors. In the study, 55 pre-perimetric subjects (68 eyes), 121 early glaucoma subjects (162 eyes) and 37 healthy subjects (57 eyes) were included. OCT angiography (OCTA) and spectral domain OCT (SD-OCT) imaging were performed to analyze microvasculature and structural changes within the macula. The AngioVue system, which has integrated OCT and OCTA facilities, was used. As compared with healthy eyes, preperimetric and early POAG eyes had significantly lower ganglion cell complex (GCC) thickness and vessel density

Mike’s household has had eight cases of pinkeye this year. Even the dog caught it. by Mike Todd “There’s a very good chance that I will be dead before all of this toothpaste is gone,” I said, dropping a box of gallon-sized tubes into our cart at Costco. “That’s morbid,” my wife, Kara, said. “Not really. I could probably see our grandkids graduate medical school by the time this toothpaste runs out.” When you’re shopping at a warehouse club, these are the kinds of calculations you make. “Eh! Eh!” said our son Zack from his stroller, pointing at the guy handing out cheese samples. I’m convinced that Zack could talk if he wanted to, but he may just choose to point and say “Eh! Eh!” for the rest of his life. “Do you take this woman to be your lawfully wedded wife?” the officiant will ask. “Eh! Eh!” Zack will reply, pointing at the woman in the wedding dress. We’ll all know what he means, so that will be good enough. Maybe they will have their honeymoon at Costco. I thanked the m

Health officials warn of virus that sends infants to intensive care - New York Post

Federal health officials warned this week of a highly contagious cold-like virus that affects everyone, and leaves the elderly and young kids especially vulnerable — including a 14-month-old girl who landed in the intensive care unit. New Orleans mom Mary Danna Daste and her husband, Kevin, rushed their daughter Vivian to the hospital, where she was diagnosed with respiratory syncytial virus, or RSV. The toddler had developed a troubling cough and high fever earlier this month, 4WWL reported . “About 3 a.m., she started with this bark-like cough,” Daste told the network. “It sounded like a seal cough. At 5 a.m., her fever spiked to 103 degrees, so we went straight to Children’s Hospital [in New Orleans]. When they told me within 24 hours after that, that she was being put in ICU, that’s when I freaked out.” Doctors told the parents that the tot also had pneumonia and adenovirus. Vivian wasn’t the only child hospitalized for RSV. “They said it’s really bad this year compared to o
