As women transition into menopause, known as peri-menopause, hormone levels can be all over the board.

Are you thinking of investing in municipal bonds? If so, you may have good reason, particularly if you are in one of the higher tax brackets. After all, municipal bond interest payments typically are exempt from federal income taxes, and possibly state and local income taxes, too — although some “munis” are subject to the alternative minimum tax. However, since not all municipal bonds are the same, you’ll want to know the differences — especially in terms of risk.
The American Academy of Sleep Medicine states that 40 percent of adult men and 24 percent of adult woman are habitual snorers.

I am a VOTING citizen of Phoenix. Cut police compensation? What are our council members thinking? Police and fire officers are the only ones left who really protect the citizens of this city. Certainly not the council members. The police and fire officers put their very lives on the line for us and are there to help no matter what help is needed.

I will not be voting for any council member who voted for these cuts and will do everything I can to convince other voters to support our police at the ballot box.
Research has shown that sugar is addictive … in fact, eight times addictive as cocaine. In 1821, each person consumed approximately 10 pounds of sugar annually. Today, that number is an astounding 160-190 pounds of sugar per person annually. On top of that about 55 percent of the sugar produced in the U.S. comes from sugar beets, 95 percent of which have been genetically engineered.
There’s a good film somewhere in “The Truth About Emanuel,” but unfortunately, you won’t find it in this muddled hour-and-a-half of tired movie tropes and big ideas gone haywire. Tossing around plot twists and clunky dialogue absent of any sensible logic or reason, what once appears to be a Stepford-esque horror story soon turns into a meditation on grief, completely devoid of any actual emotion.

"You will know her name," scream the posters for the new big-screen version of "Carrie," as if anyone could forget it after seeing Brian De Palma's brilliant 1976 movie or reading the original Stephen King novel.
Parenting involves countless mundane decisions — dozens a day. But as any parent knows, the potential for tragedy stemming from a wrong decision is never far from the surface of the mind. What if they go out and get hit by a car? What if I look away and they drown in the current? What if they get kidnapped?
Successful film soundtracks have to complete a pair of difficult tasks. They must creatively echo the film they enhance and also stand up on their own.

Over the past couple of years, the economic picture has brightened for many cities and states — but some of them are still facing potential financial problems.

Robert Redford does his most compelling work in some time as both actor and director in "The Company You Keep," a tense yet admirably restrained thriller about a fugitive forced out of hiding after 30 years to prove his innocence. Adapted with clarity and intelligence by Lem Dobbs from Neil Gordon's novel, and lent distinguishing heft by its roster of screen veterans, this gripping drama provides an absorbing reflection on the courage and cost of dissent.
