Searcy dentist turns to cartooning to cope with COVID-19

SEARCY, Ark. – During this time of self isolation, many people have extra time on their hands to explore hobbies. One Searcy dentist has done just that. 

Dr. Beth Patterson has turned into a cartoon illustrator to pass the time until she can reopen her practice. 

The Searcy dentist was anxious when she found out her practice had to close over coronavirus spread concerns. It left her without work for a while.

“I’ve never been without a job I worked since I was 13,” Dr. Patterson said. 

Quickly, she turned to the hobby of cartooning to cope with her changing world. She made doodles about standing in line at the unemployment office. 

“It’s really humbling to stand in line with other people who are out of work.” 

She made drawings about what it was like going to the grocery store during panic buying. 

“There were huge shelves of nothing which

California doctors’ dubious coronavirus claims condemned by health experts

A widely shared local television video of last week’s news conference, which was posted on YouTube, reached more than 5 million views and was amplified by Elon Musk and Fox News, where Dr. Dan Erickson and Dr. Artin Massihi appeared on primetime shows two nights in a row.

The video has since been taken down by YouTube for violating the platform’s policy on misinformation, a YouTube spokesperson said.

The doctors, who are not epidemiologists and who own and operate urgent care centers in the Bakersfield area, held the news conference on April 22 to share their conclusions about the results of 5,213 coronavirus tests at their clinics, extrapolating their findings to the California population as a whole.

“Do we need to still shelter in place? Our answer is emphatically no. Do we need businesses to be shut down? Emphatically no. Do we need to test them and get them back … Read More

Personal Trainer & Fitness Instructor Insurance

There are inherent risks, with all exercise classes and personal training sessions. Fitness Instructor liability insurance protects you, the trainer, from claims and potential lawsuits for a multitude of accidents that could happen during class or training session. Fitness instructor general liability insurance protects you from accidents that may arise, through no fault or error of your own, as the instructor.

For example, if a student slips and falls on some split water during a training session and breaks their leg, you may be liable. If a student pushes themselves too far, into a move they cannot do or overexerts themselves and gets injured or has a medical complication, you may be liable.

While you may work hard to stay current with the health situations of each client, sometimes they are not as forthright with their conditions as you need them to be. For example, you may have a female

ACSM’s Health & Fitness Journal

ACSM’s annual survey of worldwide fitness trends is now in its 14th year. New to this year’s survey was the inclusion of potential new trends such as mind-body movement (e.g., tai chi) and lifestyle medicine. Other trends were more specifically defined in the 2020 survey. For example, virtual/online training was redefined as online training, water workouts were redefined as aquatic exercise, circuit weight training was redefined as circuit training, mobile phone exercise apps was redefined as mobile exercise apps, and barbell training was redefined as training with free weights. As in the past, the results of this annual survey will help the health and fitness industry make some very important business decisions for future growth and development. These investments can now be based on emerging trends that have been identified by health fitness professionals and not on the latest exercise innovation marketed during late night infomercials on television

Visit Your Family Dentist to Treat a Cracked Tooth

If there is sudden pain in a tooth, a visit to a family dentist can determine if the tooth is cracked. Cracked teeth can occur in various fashions.

How to identify a cracked tooth

Causes

Biting into something hard, like the pit of stone fruits, may cause a crack. So could a direct blow, possible in car accidents or street fights. Unassuming causes, like the grinding of teeth and drastic changes in mouth temperature from hot to cold, may also cause a tooth to crack.

Symptoms

Symptoms to beware of if any of the previous scenarios have occurred are various. Pain while chewing, especially upon releasing the bite is typical. Cracked teeth can also become particularly sensitive to extreme temperatures. Enamel, the outer layer of teeth, covers loads of nerve endings which are exposed when teeth are cracked. This explains the phenomena of temperature sensitivity. Throbbing throughout the day and
