Heartbreaking Death Rocks 'The Vampire Diaries' Series Finale
Huffington Post - 12 months
Warning: Spoilers ahead for “The Vampire Diaries” series finale, “I Was Feeling Epic.” “The Vampire Diaries” showrunner Julie Plec told The Huffington Post that she and co-creator Kevin Williamson wanted the series finale to be both open-ended and set in stone, and after watching the episode unfurl, they accomplished just that.  The finale, titled “I Was Feeling Epic,” was a heartbreaker, as former characters came back to say their final farewells, including Elena (Nina Dobrev), who was finally able to reunite with her one true love, Damon (Ian Somerhalder), after Bonnie figured out how to reverse the curse linking her life to Elena’s. But the biggest, most devastating blow came when it was revealed that Stefan (Paul Wesley) made the ultimate sacrifice in order for his brother to have that epic reunion with Elena. He gave up a life with his new wife Caroline (Candice King) to give Damon, Elena, and his loved ones happiness.  “We’ve had people die and come back to life, ...

Beauty in a Whirlpool: Margaret Bowland and Her Models
Huffington Post - about 2 years
Margaret Bowland working with Keise: Photo by Frank Turiano Margaret Bowland -- whose recent paintings are dreamlike and a bit supernatural -- is interested in how children make sense of the world. "Children are born into the whirlpool of conflicting ideas making up the world in which they live," Bowland notes, "but they don't know they truth of any of it." As an artist, Bowland has kept her own childlike sense of wondrous confusion very much alive and for that reason her art generates a drama-filled parallel universe. A sensitive, imaginative artist who has struggled both to make sense of and also to redeem her Southern Baptist upbringing, Bowland sees is fascinated by the idea of "damaged beauty." To create images exist apart from life's struggles -- while illuminating human vulnerability in the context of society and history -- Bowland works with carefully chosen models. Bowland's models are in a sense collaborators, providing the grace and humanity needed to center and a...

Osseo native boxer hopes to bounce back strong from loss in WBA title bout
Hometown Source - almost 3 years
Caleb Truax Osseo native and professional boxer Caleb Truax faces a situation he has not been in for all of his professional and amateur boxing career – rebounding from a knockout loss. “It’s a step back anytime you lose, but I think I made good account of myself knowing I went 12 rounds with the WBA champ,” Truax said. Truax battled Daniel Jacobs for 12 rounds in the World Boxing Association middle weight title bout on Friday, April 24 in Chicago, but the former Oriole could not come back after a tough sixth round. In that middle round, Truax endured repeated hits from Jacobs and ended up against the ropes. Continue reading this Sun Post story by Matthew Davis.

Are Open Offices Really Better?
Inc. Magazine - about 4 years
They look gorgeous. Their very design suggests that collaboration is a matter of when, not if. But a recent article on New warns that open office spaces might actually be harmful to productivity. And to health. Perhaps the productivity benefits of an open-office design are not what they're cracked up to be. In a recent New Yorker article, writer Maria Konnikova revealed some of the flaws of open-office designs. Damaging to Productivity and Creative Thinking Organizational psychologist Matthew Davis reviewed more than 100 studies about office environments. His conclusion? "Though open offices often fostered a symbolic sense of organizational mission, making employees feel like part of a more laid-back, innovative enterprise, they were damaging to the workers' attention spans, productivity, creative thinking, and satisfaction," writes Konnikova. One reason for this was that the open setting permitted more work-interruptions by colleagues. These interruptions, obviously,...

Childhood Obesity Rate Actually Declining: Report
Huffington Post - over 4 years
ATLANTA -- For many years, doctors have been wringing their hands as more and more U.S. children grew fat. Now, that may be changing, with the first evidence of a national decline in childhood obesity. In 18 states, there were at least slight drops in obesity for low-income preschoolers, health officials said Tuesday. After decades on the rise, childhood obesity rates recently have essentially been flat. A few places – Philadelphia, New York City and Mississippi – reported improvements in the last couple of years. But the report from the Centers for Disease and Control Prevention shows signs of wider-ranging progress. "Now, for the first time, we're seeing a significant decrease in childhood obesity" nationally, said Dr. Thomas Frieden, CDC director. But rates are still too high, he added. One in 8 preschoolers is obese in the United States, and it's even more common in black and Hispanic kids. "It's not like we're out of the woods," he said during a con...

"Cult" lives! The CW series, starring Matthew Davis and Jessica Lucas, was pulled from the network in April, but the final six episodes will see the light of day. "Cult" returns on Fridays, beginning June 28, airing double episodes for three weeks straight.

So Long, 'Cult'

"Cult" has been canceled, Zap2It was the first to report. The show's creator Rockne S. O'Bannon confirmed the news via Twitter: #Cult Sadly true. CW Execs once called the last 5 episodes "outstanding". I guess too outstanding. You are great, SMART fans. Thx to u all! -- Rockne S. O'Bannon (@Rockne_S) April 10, 2013 "Cult's" cancellation doesn't come as a surprise. The midseason series made its debut on Tuesday, February 19 and brought in a dismal 941,000 total viewers and only had a .3 rating in the key 18-49 demo. After its second outing, which saw even lower numbers, The CW moved "Cult" to Fridays, which, for the teen-centric network, is not quite as deadly as is it on others.

Two-Thirds Of Parents Don't Follow Doctors' Orders
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
By: Karen Rowan, MyHealthNewsDaily Managing Editor Published: 03/18/2013 02:38 PM EDT on MyHealthNewsDaily Two-thirds of parents say they don't always follow the advice they get from their child's doctor, according to a new poll. The findings showed that 56 percent of parents said they follow the advice they’re given most of the time, while 13 percent said they follow it only occasionally, according to the findings from the University of Michigan C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital National Poll on Children’s Health. "Parents need to ask for clarification if they are unsure about what the provider is saying, or why it's important," said Dr. Matthew Davis, director of the poll. Doctors should use clear language, ask parents about their concerns, and give practical examples of what works with children, he said. Parents were asked about which topics they were most and least likely to follow advice. Among parents who said they follow advice only occasionally, they wer...

No, Vaccinating Girls Against HPV Does Not Make Them Promiscuous
Huffington Post - over 5 years
Vaccinating girls against the sexually-transmitted human papillomavirus (HPV) does not make them more likely to have sex, according to a new study. The findings are the latest in a string of research showing that vaccination does not encourage promiscuity, the authors say, and should go a long way in extinguishing lingering concerns about "disinhibition" among pre-teenage girls who receive the vaccine. Study co-author Robert Bednarczyk, a clinical investigator with the Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Research–Southeast, said in an interview with The Huffington Post that researchers found "no difference" in sexual activity when comparing girls who were vaccinated to those who were not. In findings published in the journal Pediatrics on Monday, investigators combed the electronic medical records of nearly 1,400 girls who were between the ages 11 and 12 from 2006 to 2007 -- the year following the Food and Drug Administration's approval of the first vaccine. Nearly 500 ...
