For Capitol Hill denizens that are considering Invisalign or braces, life just got a lot easier. The first orthodontic practice actually to be located in Capitol Hill just had its Grand Opening.

There is concern over the sale of endangered species, even those that died naturally. However, there has been a shift in the last decade in the popularity of these items. A recent auction of the private collection of an Australian self made Millionaire sold a selection of animal skin rugs plus a zebra trophy head for well over estimated value.
Last week the Mossgreen auction house in Melbourne sold what was modestly described as ”A Private Collection of Antiques and Decorative Arts”.
The majority of items were ornate Sevres vases and gilt clocks from the Louis XVI period but hidden deep in the catalogue was something even more bizarre – a selection of animal-skin rugs, plus a zebra trophy head and a pair of suede armchairs decorated with stag antlers.
Every item in this section sold, most for well above estimates. The tiger-skin rug went for $9760 (estimates $3000 to $5000), a lion-skin for $7930 ($2000 to $4000), a black panther for $2928, a leopard-skin for $2684, a puma-skin for $2928, a zebra-skin for $2562. All prices include buyer’s premiums. The antler armchairs sold for $2440, above estimates of $1000 to $1500. The zebra head sold for $1159. . . Continue Reading

A dog owner in Warrenville has already been waging war against the ticks that are showing up in her home and on her pets. She picks off 5 ticks a day from her dogs and wears a netted suit when gardening to keep the ticks off of her. Part of the battle with pests, however, is mental: she feels phantom creepy crawlies on her skin.
Check out our pest control company.
Read more from The Chicago Tribune:
The first tick dropped off Mary Ramsden’s dog and onto her kitchen floor a few weeks ago. She screamed, “Holy cripes!” and drowned the sucker.
Since then, it’s been war at her house. Ramsden has plucked as many as five ticks a day off each of her dogs in woodsy Warrenville. She ordered a netted bug suit online to wear while gardening to avoid being bothered, and she doused her furniture with a natural peppermint oil repellent. Yet the bugs are winning on at least one front — they are messing with her mind.
“You think things are crawling on you,” said Ramsden, whose friend reported finding a tick on her car dashboard the other day. “You find things on the dog, and you immediately start itching.” Continue reading…

Cooking in the kitchen kind of went out of style about 40 years ago. But health proponents keep saying that cooking your food in your own kitchen is a great way to avoid obesity and other health problems. But studies show that, if we want our children to learn healthy eating habits, we need to teach them in our own kitchens.
Let us help you with your kitchen refinish.
Read more from The New York Times:
When you argue, as I frequently do, that cooking has the potential to help us deal with many of our dietary problems, you often elicit a kind of “I don’t care, I hate cooking” response in addition to the expected “I don’t have time.” And that’s fine; cooking isn’t the only route to eating better, and besides, those who hate cooking, or can’t make the time for it, may be lucky enough to have someone else cook for them. As long as they wash the dishes.
But it pays to remember that it’s been 40 years or more since cooking went out of style for most Americans, and that a positive approach to it — one that encourages cooking and counters the ongoing marketing surge that helped make it seem so “unnecessary” — could help to change matters. And although that kind of approach can be effective with anyone (I’m constantly meeting people who began cooking in their 30s and 40s, for example), it’s bound to be most effective with kids, who haven’t yet been fully brainwashed to believe that there are better ways to spend their time than cooking — like watching television, for example!

Polly Bland is a theatre major with a concentration in costume design at Southern Illinois University. She is passionate about design and felt in her heart that costume design was where she wanted to be. In addition to being a student she is also owner of her own business, Paulie Antiques, an online shop through Etsy. The shops sells antiques as well as some of Bland’s vintage artwork.
The most noticeable aspect of Polly Bland, senior in FAA, is not her intensely colored yellow coat. Nor is it the newsprint umbrella she carries with her on rainy days. It is not even the grapefruit slice earrings she wears. The the most noticeable aspect about her is the fire and passion in her eyes when she talks about design.
Bland, one of only two undergraduate theater majors with a concentration in costume design, found her passion for the art only three and a half years ago.
She began as an anthropology major at Southern Illinois University. However, she soon became inspired by Patricia Field from “Sex and the City.” . . . Continue Reading

Tarrant County Judge Louis Sturns on Friday found probable cause to arrest former Williamson County District Attorney Ken Anderson. The ruling followed a hearing earlier in the year in which evidence was presented showing that Mr. Anderson failed to turn over material during Mr. Morton’s trial that may have helped prove the defendant’s innocence.
Judge Sturns said that there was sufficient evidence for prosecutors to move forward with all three of the charges brought against Mr. Anderson: criminal contempt of court, tampering with evidence, and tampering with government records.
On Friday, Mr. Anderson surrendered at the courthouse in Georgetown, Texas, the seat of Williamson County, located 25 miles north of Austin. Mr. Anderson currently serves as an elected judge there. Continue reading…

A penny worth $250,000, it’s true. A rare 1936 Canadian penny with a small dot under the date on the back of the coin, is one of three known surviving. The dot means it is a transitional coin minted after the death of King George V but after the abdication of King Edward VIII and before the mint could produce cents in 1937 for the new monarchy, George VI.
Canada stopped making pennies in 2012, because they cost about 1.6 cents each to produce, but a rare 1936 Canadian “Dot Cent” struck 77 years ago is expected to sell for more than $250,000 as part of Heritage Auction’s April 18-23 CICF World & Ancient Coins Signature® Auction at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Rosemont, IL.
“It’s one of only three known surviving 1936-dated Canadian cents deliberately made with a small dot under the date on the back of the coin,” said Cristiano Bierrenbach, Executive Vice President of Heritage Auctions. “The dot indicated it was a transitional coin after the January 1936 death of King George V who is depicted on the front. It was struck after the December 1936 abdication of King Edward VIII and before the mint could produce cents in 1937 with the effigy of the new monarch, George VI. Just three of the historic 1936 dot cents are known today, and this one still has its original red color.”
The current owner of the coin, who wants to remain anonymous, is a long-time collector who lives in Canada and acquired the coin in an auction conducted by Heritage in 2004. . . Continue Reading

Pests Build Immunity to Toxins
Some crops like corn and cotton have been genetically modified to repel pests. Corn and cotton specifically produce Bacillus thuringiensis, or Bt for short. But pests are building up resistance to the toxins, which is causing major concerns for certain crops’ futures.
Learn about pest control for ants.
Read more from Futurity.org:
Corn and cotton have been genetically modified to produce pest-killing proteins from the bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis, or Bt for short.
Compared with typical insecticide sprays, Bt toxins produced by genetically engineered crops are much safer for people and the environment. But, while they have helped to reduce insecticide sprays, boost crop yields, and increase farmer profits, their benefits will be short-lived if pests are able to rapidly adapt to them, says Bruce Tabashnik, head of the department of entomology at the University of Arizona.
“Our goal is to understand how insects evolve resistance so we can develop and implement more sustainable, environmentally friendly pest management,” he says.
Bt crops were first grown widely in 1996, and several pests have already become resistant to plants that produce a single Bt toxin. To thwart further evolution of pest resistance to Bt crops, farmers have recently shifted to the “pyramid” strategy: each plant produces two or more toxins that kill the same pest. Continue reading…

Corn Pest Moves Into Ohio
Asiatic garden beetle grubs are being found in corn crops in northern Ohio. If these pests are not controlled, they could cause serious economic losses to Ohioan farmers. Farmers who could not explain stand losses last year are preparing to manage these pests that are already in their soil.
See our Kudzu listing for pest control.
Read more from FarmandDairy.com:
Last year was the first known instance of Asiatic garden beetle grubs causing significant stand losses in corn in northern Ohio just below Lake Erie, said Hammond.
Growers who planted corn following soybeans in sandier soils reported last year finding Asiatic garden beetle grubs that caused some stand losses. What’s surprising, Hammond said, is that the grub, a species that is more associated with being a minor pest in turf, now appears to be much more damaging to crops than most other grubs.
“This is a new pest in the sense that this is the first year we’re going into the growing season knowing that the pests are in some soils,” Hammond said. “If you’re in northern Ohio and have had unexplained stand losses, this may be it. Continue reading…

Any animal specialized to feed on army ants is seriously badass, especially those that are smaller than the ants themselves. I’ve wanted to photograph Tetradonia for years, and this January during the BugShot workshop we happened across this one sniping at the edges of an Eciton hamatum raid.
I managed a single shot. This one. It’s slightly overexposed with too much motion blur. I also framed it poorly. I cropped away 50% of the pixels to make a passable composition. Not my best work.
But, the blurry capture is also my only photograph of this animal. Do I upload it to my professional galleries anyway? It won’t look great printed, and I’d feel embarrassed to sell it onwards for, say, a display at a natural history museum. Continue reading…

Pennsylvania is one of the most flood-prone states in the nation with 50,000 miles of rivers, streams and creeks. However, it is good to know that flooding can happen anywhere and it is important for all homeowners to be prepared. Standard homeowner’s insurance policies do not cover flooding. Separate flood insurance must be purchased and takes 30 days to go into affect so it is something that needs to be taken care of in advance to ensure proper coverage.
Winter ice and snow increases the chance of spring flooding, so the Pennsylvania Insurance Department is encouraging homeowners to consider buying flood insurance now.
With more than 50,000 miles of rivers, streams and creeks, Pennsylvania is one of the most flood-prone states in the nation and flooding can occur at any time of year.
Pennsylvania residents must carry flood insurance if they live in a designated flood zone, but flooding can happen inland and away from major waterways. Homes that could be flooded by an overflowing creek or pond, water running down a steep hill or melting snow are at risk for flood damage. . . Continue Reading

There is much emphasis put on eating healthy and drinking more water and the positive effects on our health. However, there isn’t much talk about clean air and how much it can affect our health. We should consider both our indoor air and the air outdoors when we discuss air pollution as we spend more of our time indoors. There are a number of things we can do increase our healthy air intake which will in turn benefit our bodies.
The beauty of working from home is that I can work in my pajamas; however, it also means I spend a significant amount of time indoors, often in my bedroom, office or hotel room, without opening a door or window for days. Those of you who play poker full time, are likely nodding in agreement.
I listened to a lecture on the topic of air quality by Joshua Rosenthal at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition recently, who reminded us that, “We can go weeks without food, days without water, but only a matter of seconds without oxygen.” This made me realize that a lot of attention is placed on eating well and drinking more water for optimum health, but what about the quality of our number one, most immediate, vital requirement for survival?
There’s no denying that when you visit a beach or forest, or when you wake up in your own city at sunrise while the air is fresh, there is an instant attraction to the clean air that you take in. Rosenthal explained that when he moved to a region that was dense with thousands upon thousands of trees, he noticeably began to feel smarter. His ideas poured through with clarity, and he became more productive. So perhaps the concept of having a “foggy head” could very well be connected to the fog you’re breathing through that head. . .

Wellness Programs have been a trend for a while in workplaces to encourage employees to be healthier which would in turn lower health care costs and require less time off for illness. However, new studies are showing this might not be as cost saving as previously thought. A two year study shows that although hospitalization for employees and family members dropped dramatically there was an increase in outpatient costs which negated the savings.
Your bosses want you to eat your broccoli, hit the treadmill and pledge you’ll never puff on a cigarette. But a new study raises doubts that workplace wellness programs save the company money.
In what’s being called the most rigorous look yet inside the wellness trend, independent researchers tracked the program at a major St. Louis hospital system for two years. Hospitalizations for employees and family members dropped dramatically, by 41 percent overall for six major conditions. But increased outpatient costs erased those savings.
The study in Monday’s issue of the journal Health Affairs has implications for a debate now taking place at companies around the country: How much pressure can you put on workers to quit smoking, lose weight and get exercise before it turns into unwelcome meddling, or worse, a slippery slope toward a new kind of health discrimination? . .

The What and Why of Criminal Defense Attorneys
Criminal Defense Attorneys provide representation in court for those under criminal investigation. Because most citizens are not knowledgeable concerning the process of criminal justice and ignorance is not a defense to a guilty verdict, it is important that an attorney be retained. One with little understanding of the system may discover the offense charged to them may lead to a long prison term.
Read this to learn more about criminal defense.
Read more from attorneys.com:
Criminal defense attorneys can assist clients throughout the criminal justice process, including pre-trial. Some people choose to retain a lawyer during the investigation period of a crime, before they are even charged. This often happens if someone is a suspect and has reason to believe that he or she will soon be charged. In these instances, a criminal defense lawyer may help instruct the individual while being questioned by authorities to ensure the suspect doesn’t divulge any incriminating information.
A criminal defense attorney can also help convince a court to drop charges against you based on insufficient evidence or improper procedure. For example, in many instances a police officer must have probable cause before making an arrest. Probable cause means a compelling reason to believe that you may have committed a crime. Criminal defense attorneys have a nuanced understanding of probable cause as it is defined within your jurisdiction and may be able to present a challenge to the officers reasoning in court. If the attorney can show that the officer may not have had probable cause to investigate the alleged crime scene and make an arrest, charges against you may be dropped before a trial even begins.

Types Of Criminal Defense
Since there are many defenses employed by criminal attorneys, the most common defenses are the focus of the discussion and listed. The common defenses include duress, self-defense, intoxication, and insanity. The author references court cases in the descriptions of the types of defense.
Read more from justanswer.com:
The common law rule of duress, provides that the defense of duress is available to a defendant coerced to commit a criminal act through the use of, or the threat of force against his person or the person of another. Commonwealth v. Yoder, 3 Pa. D. & C.4th 60. A claim of duress must involve the threat of imminent peril of death or serious injury, operating on the defendant’s mind and overbearing his will. Threats to third persons may qualify as well…
According to the rule of self defense, a defender may use deadly force only if he reasonably believes that such force is necessary to avoid death or serious bodily injury; he did not provoke the use of force against himself in the same incident; and finally, he could not retreat with complete safety. If any of these factors is negated; i.e., the defender did not reasonably believe deadly force was necessary; he provoked the incident, or he could retreat with safety, then his use of deadly force in self-defense was not justifiable and he may be prosecuted for injuries or death he inflicts on the assailants or on bystanders. If his use of deadly force was justifiable, he may not be prosecuted for either. Commonwealth v. Fowlin, 551 Pa. 414. Continue reading…
The Basics Of Bankruptcy
Bankruptcy laws are designed to help citizens who are not able to pay their bills. There are three main chapters of bankruptcy, Chapters 7, 11, and 13. Usually a bankruptcy is initiated by the creditor completing and filing a petition with the court.
Learn more about Knoxville file chapter 13.
Read more from uscourts.gov:
A petition may be filed by an individual, by a couple, or by a corporation or other entity. The debtor is also required to file statements listing assets, income, liabilities, and the names and addresses of all creditors and how much they are owed. The filing of the petition automatically prevents, or “stays,” debt collection actions against the debtor and the debtor’s property. As long as the stay remains in effect, creditors cannot bring or continue lawsuits, make wage garnishments, or even make telephone calls demanding payment. Creditors receive notice from the clerk of court that the debtor has filed a bankruptcy petition. Some bankruptcy cases are filed to allow a debtor to reorganize and establish a plan to repay creditors, while other cases involve liquidation of the debtor’s property. In many bankruptcy cases involving liquidation of the property of individual consumers, there is little or no money available from the debtor’s estate to pay creditors. Continue reading…

In the state of Florida it is required that all construction businesses no matter how big of small carry workers’ compensation benefits for all employees. This week seven men were arrested for failing to show proof of coverage, which is a third degree felony in the state. Many businesses don’t obtain the coverage because it is expensive however the problem comes when someone gets injured. It is also important as a homeowner who is hiring a construction company to verify benefits because the homeowner could be liable if someone is injured on their property.
In the state of Florida, Workers Compensation Insurance is required for everyone in the construction industry. It doesn’t matter how many employees there are or how many hours they work. But not everyone is following state laws.
“Business owners, especially small business owners, as many the owners told me, the coverage is rather expensive and it’s difficult to maintain when you have a small business,” said Detective William Quick.
These seven men were arrested this week for failing to show proof of coverage, which is a third degree felony. . . Continue Reading

Radon gas, although dangerous is easy to test for and fairly easy to solve. Radon is a radioactive gas that can seep into homes from the soil below. Extended exposure to high levels of the gas causes lung cancer, killing over 20,000 people a year. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency encourages all homeowners to test their home.
As part of National Radon Action Month, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced steps New Yorkers can take to test and address radon gas. Radon occurs naturally from the decay of uranium in the soil and can accumulate to dangerous levels inside the home.
