Getting Attention: Makenzie Shea

By Jaclyn Pelopida

The youngest of six siblings (she has three older brothers and three sisters), Shea is the comedian in the family and loves making everyone laugh.

Reality TV vs. Scripted TV: Who Wins in the Rankings?

By Jaclyn Pelopida

Reality TV stars are just as famous as scripted television actors, and usually they’re the ones we read about in the tabloids each week. Whether it’s a story about a jail sentence from one of the women of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” or a gay slur heard around the world on “Duck Dynasty,” it seems that reality TV is taking precedence to scripted TV.

The Culture of Dressing Up for Dinner

By Cinzia Antonelli

The choice of evening wear for dinner is a real culture that inspires and excites our imagination so intensely, that we immediately begin to design the most original and dazzling outfit to show off for the occasion.

Today, fashion is a kind of redefinition of the traditions of the past, which has been somewhat sanitized through customs that were sometimes rigid in accordance with the rules of a strict dress code for the evening.  However being in perfect harmony with our eveningwear is always a great test of our own personal style.

An Apple a Day.  Does it Still Keep the Doc Away?

By Nichole Rich, PhD.

Red Delicious, Golden Delicious, Gala, and Fuji.  These might all be common to you but there are actually over 7,500 varieties of apples.  It would take you almost 20 years if you decided to try to eat a different apple a day.  The popular saying “An apple a day keeps the doctor away” can be traced back as early as 1866.  Where did this saying come from and does it ring true?

A Healthier You!

By  Pleshette Vonner

There are many well-known quotes that can be applied to our health and wellness. One of my favorites from Benjamin Franklin is, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” So what lessons can we learn from Ben’s words, and how can prevention help toward the quest to better health?

Healthy Heart, Healthy YOU

By Elizabeth Phinney

Certainly in this day and age, you have heard the expression, “come from your heart and not your head.”  The symbol of love is a heart.  “We ‘heart’ New York” is the state’s slogan.  When we point to ourselves, we typically point directly to our heart.

What is it about the heart that makes it so sentimental?  So much a symbol of our emotions?  A symbol of who we are?

Waking Up – Caronah Cassell

By Emy LaCroix

For many people, hearing the word “cancer” brings their world to a grinding halt. Feelings of helplessness, fear, and distress can be overwhelming.

Her desire to share this zeal for life is shared in her garments – unexpected flashes of color, lively plumes of tulle, and curve-hugging metallics – all to help women feel the same about their bodies as Cassell feels about hers – thankful.
