Medical professionals are not immune to obesity and obesity-related problems. Today, many physicians, nurses, dietitians, and even bariatric surgeons are susceptible to being overweight. It’s surprising to see those on the front lines of the obesity be afflicted by the same problem. The disease is so pervasive because it’s caused by a multitude of issues, most of which the medical community is still not in agreement with, which has caused poor conflicting advice.
Dr. Valenzuela felt that gastric sleeve surgery, otherwise called sleeve gastrectomy, would be her treatment of choice. Laparoscopic gastric sleeve resection is by far the , providing high, expected weight-loss with low risks. Surgical risks of surgery are then further reduced by choosing a dedicated center for bariatrics and by selecting...

Industry Pioneer, StringWorks, Celebrates 20 Years of Serving Musicians Worldwide
January 17, 2017
The year was 1997, and the internet was still deep in a process of self-discovery. In a move that began as more of an experiment, founder Todd French launched the initial StringWorks website – hoping to find a new way to connect musicians to high quality stringed instruments.
French, a cellist with an impressive resume that includes the Los Angeles Philharmonic and Los Angeles Opera, took a close look at many instrument lines, but found them to be lacking. He eventually realized that StringWorks would need to design its own line of instruments, in order to pair affordability with high quality craftsmanship, exceptional sound, beautiful appearance, quality tonewood, ease of playing, and specifications meeting or exceeding those set by the National Association for Music Education (formerly the MENC).
"I envisioned an impeccable product line that could meet my very high standards. Fine instruments that would be as affordable as they were exceptional,”...
Grovestone Opens First Retail Location in Champaign
January 11, 2017
A dream has come alive in Champaign for Loui Liagridonis, who proudly announced the opening of his first olive oil store, Grovestone. The Liagridonis family has been producing olive oil for many generations in Greece and previously sold their ultra-premium olive oils only in Europe. The family’s ancestors used olives as their main source of fat because they thought animal fat was unhealthy as the barbarians subsisted off of it. The health and therapeutic benefits associated with consuming olive oil were first mentioned by Hippocrates, the Greek “father of medicine,” who used olive oil to treat his patients. Olive oil was named “liquid gold” by Homer because exporting it generated trade potential with other Mediterranean regions.
The olive tree has been a symbol of wisdom and peace for Liagridonis’s ancestors. At the ancient Olympic Games, every winner was presented with a simple olive wreath fashioned from a branch cut with a gold-handled...
