Nurses' reassurances may not help kids' stress: study
Yahoo News - about 3 years
Children who were not anxious at the start of the visit and who heard reassurances about 15 seconds into the event had a 2 in 3 chance of getting more stressed by reassurances. "For children who are very anxious, the reassurance can have even more negative effects," said Yuefang Zhou. Zhou and her colleague, Gerry Michael Humphris, both of the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, conducted the study. The current study published in the Annals of Behavioral Medicine confirms the same relationship found in past research on more serious procedures, said Keith Allen.

Don't be surprised when The Mantras' genres mix from song to song. "It's interesting," singer and guitarist Keith Allen said.

'Game of Thrones': Alfie Allen talks poor, misguided Theon Greyjoy
LATimes - over 4 years
Theon Greyjoy spent most of the second season of "Game of Thrones" making one bad decision after another in his quest to rule Winterfell in Robb Stark's absence. But after a series of increasingly despicable acts, he finally got a chance to shine in the season finale, rallying the troops before reaching quite an unexpected conclusion. For actor Alfie Allen, that scene was one of his favorites of the entire season. The 25-year-old British actor (who's the brother of singer Lily Allen and son of actor and musician Keith Allen) has had a career on stage, television and film, but his role as Theon is his highest-profile to date. He spoke about his character and the season finale in advance of the episode's Sunday airing. Would you describe Theon as misguided? Selfish? I'd say both of those words. Definitely. On the selfish side of it, he's looking for a bit of status. He wants to be Prince Theon and he wants to have the ability to make his own decisions and decide his own fate, which ...

Fire Pit BBQ now open in Wake Forest
News Observer - almost 5 years
Barbecue purists will want to take note that there's a new restaurant in Wake Forest cooking all its meat on wood: Fire Pit BBQ. Owner Ted Patterson has spent 40 years working in construction. Two connections made him interested in opening a restaurant. First, he has designed and built many of Giorgios Bakastais' restaurants from Vita to Girasole and Gatehouse Tavern, which are right next door to Fire Pit BBQ in the Gateway Commons shopping center. Second, his next door neighbor is Keith Allen, the barbecue legend behind Allen & Son. They live on a hill surrounding by hickory trees. Patterson describes his restaurant as "eclectic with a purity of intent." They only cook on wood, hickory and oak in fact. There is no gas line. "We're committed," he says. They serve pulled pork, beef brisket, half or quarter chickens, housemade sausage and a St. Louis-style ribs. They are open 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Tuesdays-Sunday.
