The King Of The Surf Guitar Has Died

Dale, whose work included the 1962 hit “Misirlou” that was featured in the film “Pulp Fiction,” died on Saturday night. The popularity of surf music faded in the United States with the advent of rock’s “British Invasion” but Dale would have a career revival that started in the 1990s. He often said he kept performing because he wanted to “die onstage with an explosion of body parts.” But Dale also told interviewers he was on the road because he needed to earn $3,000 a month to pay medical expenses not covered by insurance after bouts with cancer, diabetes and back problems. He said he also liked to inspire people who might be having a tough time. Dale said his fans …

‘I thought it was just a cold at first’

Despite being premature, the twins did not require any special care. Soon after the birth they went home to join their older brother Jamie, who is now five. But in January 2018, when the twins were five-and-a-half weeks old, Stephanie noticed that a cold they had both been suffering from was getting worse, so she asked her GP’s surgery for advice. “Luca stopped feeding as much and I mentioned this to the doctor, I mentioned this to the health visitor and they basically said, ‘No, it’s absolutely fine, they’ve just got a cold.’ “I said, ‘OK, no problem, we’ll just carry on as we are.’ Then, when they were six weeks old, he wasn’t waking, he wasn’t eating, and so …

Prescription drug prices are out of control

(CNN)In an all-too-rare example of political consensus, congressional lawmakers on both sides of the aisle appear to agree — at least in principle — that something needs to be done about out-of-control prescription drug prices. That’s a good thing for just about everyone, except perhaps drug makers. The question now, though, is whether the principle will be put into practice. And if the last decade is anything to go on, what will these medicines cost a dozen or so years from now? Six times their current prices? If past is prologue, that’s where we’re headed. So, what can be done? Allow Medicare to negotiate on what it pays for prescription drugs Currently, Medicare cannot negotiate prescription drug prices with pharmaceutical …

To combat a terrible measles epidemic, Italy is no longer putting up with unvaccinated kids.

via Sanofi Pasteur / Flickr Between 2017 and 2018 the number of global measles cases increased by 48.1% according to calculations by UNICEF. Recent outbreaks have been caused by poor health infrastructure, low awareness, complacency and, in the developed world, a backlash against vaccinations. Even though report after report shows there is no link between vaccinations and autism, a small percentage of people in the developed world refuse to vaccinate their children resulting in outbreaks of diseases that were nearly eradicated. In the U.S., children must have the following vaccinations to attend public school: diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis; polio, measles, and rubella. However, in 47 states, parents can get an exception for personal reasons. The only states that prohibit such exemptions …

Nearly Half Of British Women Don’t Know Where The Vagina Is. And It Gets Much Worse.

New research has found that half of people in the UK don’t know where the vagina is. Perhaps worse, this includes the worrying information that only 45 percent of people who have their very own vagina are able to locate the vagina. Research from YouGov provides some quite alarming statistics about how well Brits know their own bodies. A team of researchers asked respondents to label female genitalia. Overall, 52 percent of people couldn’t locate the vagina. Of course, women were slightly better at locating it than men, with 45 percent of women unable to find it compared to 59 percent of men. Contrary to “men can’t find the clitoris” jokes, this was actually the part of women’s genitals that men were most able to …

What A Personal Trainer Eats In A Day Betches

Whenever I tell someone I’m in the fitness industry, I always get a lot of questions about what a personal trainer eats. Because of my background, I think people assume I’m always very uptight about food, which I am, to an extent. I think that it’s very important for everyone to put quality nutrition into their bodies. Like, if you drove a Lambo would you fill it up with anything less than premium gas? No. However, I am SO FAR from being super restrictive about food, and I take the same approach to my clients. Because I used to have such a shaky history with food in my middle and high school years, I am very aware of the effect …

Manafort sentencing highlights Russia probe looming over Trump

Washington (CNN)Paul Manafort’s final date with his legal destiny on Wednesday — barring a presidential pardon — is sure to show why impeachment talk will not be quelled by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s fresh attempts to tamp it down. That’s because the President will likely find it almost impossible not to weigh in on what happens in the courtroom. His comments and criticism will revive the question of whether he is planning a pardon for Manafort and potentially other indicted associates, the prospect of which plays into allegations of obstruction of justice and abuse of power. Pelosi tried to temper surging talk that her party could try to oust Trump — stimulated by its liberal grass roots and Republicans seeking …
