Sinusitis is an inflammation of the mucous membranes. Most cases of chronic sinusitis are not caused by infection but are actually an immune disorder caused by fungus. Mayo Clinic researchers found that “fungal organisms were present in 96 percent of patients who had surgery for chronic sinusitis, and that inflammatory cells were clumped around the fungi, which indicated that the condition was an immune disorder caused by fungus.”
Wherever I go in the country, or the world for that matter, if there is a music-related site I take the trouble to visit it. When I was in Rio de Janeiro, I made a beeline for Garota de Ipanema Café and Bar, where the great bossa nova song “The Girl From Ipanema” was written. Last year, while in Nashville, I visited the new Johnny Cash Museum and in New York strolled by the Brill Buildings, where folks like Carole King (“Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow”) and Ellie Greenwich (“Da Doo Ron Ron”) wrote the songs we remember from the 1960s.
I found out Feb. 11 that since April 2013, Medicare granted itself a 2 percent discount from doctors and medical providers with a contract with Medicare. They then sent AARP United Healthcare a form with the full payment so my supplemental insurance also did not pay the 2 percent. Meanwhile, the discrepancy had a note that local state and federal law required an adjustment.

There are legendary musicians, and then there’s Steve Gadd.
This year was a year of big headlines in Ahwatukee Foothills.
Strumming a guitar, decked in high heels and a homemade fringe dress, Wanda Jackson had no idea she was on the cusp of making history. She realized something was afoot when she and tour mate Elvis Presley started packing out auditoriums and coliseums across the country.
Perhaps no vocal group in America – other than the Beach Boys – have been as celebrated as The Manhattan Transfer. Over the last four decades, the quartet has racked up a dozen Grammy Awards, sold millions of albums and made Grammy Award history in 1981 when they became the first group in both pop and jazz categories in the same year.
At 72 years young, Dan Hicks remains the eternal hipster. Hicks first entered the music scene in the sixties with his seminal group, The Charlatans, and he remains an influential figure among musicians.
I had my conversation in my aunt’s car on a South Dakota road. I’m talking about starting that conversation about your family’s heart history.
What do you think? Can porn be addictive? More mental health professionals are telling us “yes it can,” and further, it can be as addictive as hard-core drugs and it’s known to change the health of the brain.
(Editor’s note: This is the first in a two-part guest commentary. See the conclusion in the Nov. 22 AFN, where one porn user shares his journey and mental health experts struggle over what to call this problem).
November comes along and minds are on travel, turkey and family gatherings. This classic slider provides an autumn twist. This Bacon and Bleu Cheese Slider will fast become a family favorite and change up the typical “hamburger night.” The dish is fun, and uses a slight shortcut with cornbread mix and it’s easy to get the kids involved (buttering the pan, mixing the ingredients, what kid doesn’t want to crack an egg?). If you aren’t a bleu cheese fan, easily substitute equal amount of goat or gorgonzola cheese. For an extra kick, add one jalapeno (seeded) to the cornbread mix. Prefer a moister cornbread muffin? Replace 1 cup of the milk with one can creamed corn. Kids typically prefer a toned down version of the mayo, use more or less of the chipotle depending upon your families taste. These sliders make great appetizers for your holiday parties or a great main dish for family meals. Enjoy!

Arizona hospitals should net $108 million in the first six months of 2014 under a Medicaid expansion plan, even after paying their new assessments, according to a state study.
When I was growing up, I loved my mom’s stuffed eggs. Heck, as a chubby and happy-go-lucky kid, I loved anything filled with mayonnaise.
When I was growing up in Virginia, one of the signs of summer I anticipated most was the appearance of fat green tomatoes on the vines in our garden. We picked them well before they started to blush, dipped the thick slices in egg and milk, dredged them with cornmeal, salt and pepper, then fried them in a skillet.
In Cateura, Paraguay, there is landfill. Out of that landfill grew a shantytown. Out of that shantytown grew an orchestra — an orchestra with instruments made of garbage — a Recycled Orchestra.
Summertime is burger time. And it’s so easy to throw a few beef patties on the grill. Not much is required in the way of embellishment, yet they have a big happiness return. What’s the magic ingredient? Fat, of course. Beef burgers are high in fat, which guarantees flavor and juiciness. And because fat enhances flavor, it also makes anything else you put in or on the burger taste better, too. Heartbreakingly, as you decrease the fat content in a burger, its flavor tends to go bye-bye, too. This is a real problem if you want to dig into a delicious burger and still want the blood to continue sailing through your arteries. The solution? Turkey. I know. I know. You’ve tried turkey burgers and it was like eating wet cardboard. Hah! But you haven’t tried my turkey burgers... Let’s start with the basic ingredient — ground turkey. While researching this recipe, I discovered that the labels on ground turkey can be quite confusing. You’d figure that a package labeled “lean” would mean what it says. Weirdly, it turns out that the calories and fat in a 4-ounce portion of “lean” ground turkey can range from 120 calories with 1 percent fat to 160 calories with 12 percent fat (which is as rich as a lean beef burger). As always, it’s best to read labels and not rely on words such as “lean” or “white meat” when looking for healthy choices. Or, better yet, grind your own turkey. Start by buying a small package of turkey tenderloins, the flap of meat that lies just under the breast. As little as a 1 1/2 pounds of turkey tenderloins can be ground to produce six burgers. Cut the tenderloins into 1-inch cubes and freeze them for 30 minutes. Pop them in a food processor and pulse until they achieve a medium-grind consistency. Now we come to the crucial part of the recipe, the part I call Turkey Helper. The blandest and driest of white meats, turkey cries out for flavor and moisture. Happily, any number of vegetables can answer this call, including sauteed onions, bell peppers or mushrooms, shredded raw Napa cabbage, or carrots.
Finding good Mexican grub in this town is no problem; we could celebrate Cinco de Mayo once a week if pressed. But if you’re looking to do justice to this weekend’s other big almost-holiday, the Kentucky Derby, that’s a little more of a head scratcher. Here are three ways to indulge in the Southern spirit of the Run for the Roses, no big fancy hats required.
The go-to beverage of Cinco de Mayo is now available in dessert form. Margarita cupcakes are the latest offering from Scottsdale cupcake shop Sprinkles. The tangy little number with key lime-tequila cake capped by key lime frosting and sprinkled with salt is available May 3-5 at the bakery, 4501 N. Scottsdale Road.
There are restaurants that slash prices on margaritas or invite a mariachi band for Cinco de Mayo - and then there are restaurants that go a little nuts.
