Ten years after the release of Michael Lehmann's stinging teen satire "Heathers" (1989) comes "Jawbreaker," an inferior retread of the same material that is more outrageous, but less clever, acted with less charisma, and lacking in the former's biting sense of black humor. The events that transpire in "Jawbreaker" squeak out a strained laugh here and there, but overall it smells of something tryin ... ...

Social stigma about epilepsy and the mistaken belief that seizures are caused by djinn are putting the lives of sufferers and non-sufferers at risk, doctors warn. Such misconceptions mean cases often go undiagnosed, preventing patients from receiving the appropriate medical treatment and contributing to an underreporting of the condition. Doctors also say a lack of regulation on epileptics ...
Doctors are calling for tougher legislation to govern the issuing of driving licences to epileptics. Sufferers of the condition are already banned from certain professions - such as aviation, driving public transport and operating heavy machinery - but doctors' advice to epileptic drivers of private vehicles is not legally binding, as it is in some western countries. "Someone with ...
Sunlight beams through the lounge window at the Katoas' house creating warmth and comfort. The house is matchbox-size, immaculate and homely.

St Louis StarSt Louis Star | Breaking St Louis News & General News
The St Louis Star is essentially a local St Louis newspaper, but with a national and international perspective, designed to provide readers with a one-stop shop for St Louis, national US, regional, and world news coverage, weather and sports information, with live updates on breaking business stories, and what's happening in the financial markets.
The biggest advantage we have is that we are an online newspaper, which means we are constantly refreshing our stories as more and more information comes to hand. Often when a story breaks the initial details are sketchy.
We and our sources around the world work hard to gather more information, verify facts, and provide a perspective of the major stories. Expert opinion often accompanies our articles to better inform readers, and provide a more complete understanding
of the news we deliver.
Financial markets and business reports are regular features as we pin down what's happening, and constantly refresh stock market indice readings, dollar currency rates, and breaking business news reports. Our world sports coverage is a priority, as is our regional news.
We like to think if you're looking for breaking news out of St Louis, Missouri, the United States, or the world, you'll look for it first at the St Louis Star.
University of Missouri researchers have found that simvastatin, a generic type of statin previously sold under the brand name "Zocor," hindered the positive effects of exercise for obese and overweight adults.
Statins, the most widely prescribed drugs worldwide, are often suggested to lower cholesterol and prevent heart disease in individuals with obesity, diabetes and metabolic syndrome, which is a combination of medical disorders including excess body fat and/or high levels of blood pressure, blood sugar and/or cholesterol.
"Daily physical activity is needed to maintain or improve fitness, and thus improve health outcomes. However, if patients start exercising and taking statins at the same time, it seems that statins block the ability of exercise to improve their fitness levels," said John Thyfault, an associate professor of nutrition and exercise physiology at MU.
Thyfault said that many cardiologists want to prescribe statins to all patients over a certain age regardless of whether they have metabolic syndrome; the drugs also are recommended for people with Type 2 diabetes. He recommends that cardiologists more closely weigh the benefits and risks of statins given this new data about their effect on exercise training. ...
