Everyone knows the saying: “There’s no ‘I’ in ‘team.’” That’s never been truer than of Team Orthodontics, where the mission is simple: enhance patients’ lives in a positive and significant way. It’s a theme that runs through the veins of every Team Ortho employee.
Lately, one of Jesus’ more cryptic phrases has been making laps inside my head. I came back across his words while reading the Passion accounts in the Gospels, this year quickly speeding toward the Lenten season as it is. These words were spoken on the last night Jesus was with his disciples: “Abide in me, and I will abide in you.”
Defined benefit plans were created to assure that after a career serving the public and risking their lives for others, firefighters had a secure and dependable retirement income. Public employees have frequently forfeited pay raises to improve and protect their retirement benefits. They earn less during their careers, but receive good pension benefits that are guaranteed. This protects employees and family members in their retirement years.
I’ll never forget the first time I left my new puppy Leinie, an Australian Shepherd, alone in my home. I was only gone four hours and returned to find a 6-inch hole in my wall. This experience solidified my view that dogs need “jobs” to do when left alone. These “jobs” reduce separation anxiety tendencies and allow dogs to stay focused on a task. Over the years, I have tested numerous chew bones/toys for my dogs and have narrowed it down to a number of “must haves” for any dogs chewing desires. Remember: Always supervise your dog when chewing on ANY new bone/toy that they could potentially swallow. Below are a few chewing tips to lower your odds of coming home to unwanted construction:
Not long ago, the FCC issued a proposed rule that I firmly support, as do emergency service dispatchers and law enforcement officials throughout the country. This rule would require standards to be updated so that individuals who dial 911 from a mobile phone can be located just as they would if they had used a landline.
“The Book of Life” has most of the same pros and cons as “The Boxtrolls” from a couple weeks ago. Both films are absolute joys to watch for their delightful characters, unique worlds, and dazzling animation. As creative as they are in terms of presentation, neither film is all that original when it comes to storytelling. “The Book of Life” isn’t just a familiar story like “The Boxtrolls,” through. It’s also a very overstuffed and awkwardly paced one too. So exactly how problematic is the story? Well, read the synopsis below and find out for yourself.
The mystery surrounding the death of former heavyweight boxer Zora Folley, including what actually occurred the night the Chandler resident died more than four decades ago, is the subject of a new book by author and former reporter Marshall Terrill.
With “Thank You For Smoking,” “Juno,” and “Up in the Air,” few modern directors have done a more authentic job at capturing the age we live in better than Jason Reitman. It’s actually pretty surprising that it’s taken him this long to make a movie concerning digital media’s effect on culture. What’s even more shocking is the fact that some of these innovations are barely a decade old. On top of all that, it’s only been 13 years since the 9/11 attacks, which instigated the need for every man, woman, and child to have a cell phone. We might have gotten by fine without them for years, but now it’s impossible to imagine life without any mobile devices or social networking.
‘Fury” is a good wartime drama that might have been considered great had it come out anywhere in between 1930 and 1998. In the year 2014, however, the film might come off as too familiar to those who have seen classics like “All Quiet on the Western Front,” “Apocalypse Now,” “Platoon,” and “Saving Private Ryan.” That’s not to say “Fury” is too little too late. On the contrary, the film is exceptionally made, wonderfully acted, and effectively portrays the horrors of war. It’s just hard to totally give yourself to a movie when you can tell who’s going to live, who’s going to die, and what’s going to be learned 10 minutes in.
Have you ever considered purchasing fine furniture and/or accessories from a consignment shop? I didn’t until recently, when I took a tour of the huge selection of consignment and thrift shops in the Valley. I was truly amazed at the selections, styles and most of all, the prices.
There are many important factors when sellers are preparing to market their home such as timing, pricing and market strategy. Although, one of the most important things that sellers often overlook is staging their homes to sell prior to photos and showings.
Some Phoenix leaders voiced opinions on an abused pension system that needs an investigation as to how it was bankrupted by those whom exploited the system. Those that corrupted and stole the funds need to be investigated and punished.
Jax is a big beautiful boy, about 3 years old. He’s very playful and sweet. Thus far he’s gotten along with most cats he’s met. It isn’t sure if he’d be happy living with dogs. Jax has been at the shelter for quite some time so when he does get adopted the family should understand it might take him some time to adjust to a home environment. His last person ended up having to return him due to allergies. Jax would like to be brushed sometimes to keep that wonderful mane of his looking it’s best. He seems to understand there’s a price to pay for being so handsome so he doesn’t mind it.
