The “annual physical” can be an important part of your health maintenance program, yet many people skip it, notes Dr. Matthew Bogard in a new article.

Matthew Bogard, MD (N/A:N/A)

Regardless of whether or not there are any problems with the results of your medical examination, visiting a doctor will help you understand the changes that you need to make to your lifestyle”

— Matthew Bogard, MD in Iowa & Nebraska

OMAHA, NEBRASKA, UNITED STATES, January 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — It’s unfortunate that many people only see a doctor when they are in pain or sense a serious ailment. It’s quite curious, as many people regularly bring their car in for maintenance and an oil change, have a technician check the air conditioner at home, and pre-treat the lawn with chemicals. Isn’t your health more important than your car or air conditioner or lawn?

Many chronic conditions such as diabetes and heart disease take a long time to develop, and their development can easily be discovered and treated during a routine exam with your medical doctor. If that alone is not enough to convince you that an annual medical exam is a good idea, read the newest informational article by Dr. Matthew Bogard, available on his blog at https://matthewbogardmd.blogspot.com/

We all have busy lives. We spend more time at the office than we would like, the drive to the office in congested traffic can rob you of significant time, and then the kids need help with homework. There simply is never enough time. Thus, seeing a doctor when you are feeling well is probably the last thing on your mind. Though most people don’t see the doctor unless they feel like it is absolutely necessary, this approach can literally be hazardous to your health and can delay diagnosis of developing conditions.

Since the symptoms of most chronic conditions and diseases do not appear until the situation has become considerably worse, getting an annual medical exam is a great idea to know what exactly is going on with your body and help make the right changes to your lifestyle to prevent complications.

If you are still not convinced of the importance of annual medical examinations, here are a few more reasons that might help change your mind about medical examinations and convince you to see your doctor for an annual physical examination.

Have a professional screen your health

Many people resort to self-diagnosis – “if it feels really bad, I should probably see a doctor.” While this approach may work fine for the common cold or a sore elbow, other situations such as prolonged stomach pains or chest discomfort should not be ignored. The most debilitating illnesses, diseases, and conditions often appear in the form of symptoms that could easily go undiagnosed or mistaken for other, less severe ones. It is best to see a medical doctor to ensure that you are in the clear.

Picture of your health

Even if the results of your medical examination turn out “normal,” seeing your doctor regularly is a great way of ensuring that you’re not at risk of developing serious conditions or illnesses down the road. A simple example are routine blood tests for cholesterol and sugar which give the doctor an indication of diseases you are at risk of.

Even if there aren’t any anomalies in the results of your medical examination, getting a thorough checkup once a year can help both you and your doctor understand the true status of your health.

Review your vaccinations

Nothing lasts forever, including vaccines. Vaccinations are not just for children. It is important for adults to receive recommended vaccines. Additionally, since the type of vaccination that you might need depends on a number of different factors including your age, it is apt that you visit your doctor on a yearly basis for the right examinations and to update your vaccinations.

Review your lifestyle

Regardless of whether or not there are any problems with the results of your medical examination, visiting a doctor will help you understand the changes that you need to make to your lifestyle in order to remain healthy and active for years to come.

Additionally, since letting go of certain dangerous habits such as smoking or binge eating can be difficult without the intervention of a professional, your doctor will also be able to provide you with the right resources to change your life for the better. And since your health depends on a number of different factors, visiting a doctor regularly for checkups will ensure that the doctor has complete understanding of your medical history and all conditions that you may have, allowing him or her to provide you with the best advice to achieve or maintain a healthy lifestyle.

What does the Annual Physical involve?

While there really isn’t a fixed standard that decides what will and will not be included in an annual physical examination, there are some things that you should expect in every annual physical examination.

When you visit your doctor for your annual physical examination, it goes without saying that your doctor will specifically ask you if you’ve been facing any problems with your health in recent weeks or months. Depending on your response, you will be thoroughly checked to ensure that the doctor fully understands and assesses the situation and pinpoints any underlying problems or conditions.

Next, the doctor will check your vital signs to get an idea of your overall health and wellbeing. Once your blood pressure, temperature, heart rate and respiration rate are checked, the doctor might start asking you some more basic questions about your health and physical state in general. By doing so, the doctor will not only figure out what they need to regarding your responsiveness and mental quickness, but the doctor might even throw in a question or two to test your memory.

Once this is done, your doctor will get into more thorough testing and examinations of important organs such as your lungs and heart. Using a stethoscope, the doctor will listen to your heartbeat to check for irregularities or any signs that could potentially be caused by cardiac problems or diseases. Your lungs, too, will be checked for any wheezing, crackles, or abnormalities that could be an indicator of respiratory issues.

The overall health of your skin, sinuses, eyes, and teeth may also be checked in a physical exam so that the doctor gets a clear picture of your overall health. Finally, your doctor may check your lymph nodes, thyroid, tonsils, and ears to ensure there are no issues.

In conclusion, an annual physical is a comprehensive physical exam that can help you and your doctor understand your physical health and well-being. It will not only be possible for your doctor to detect or diagnose many of different health problems, conditions, and diseases, but also help you regain health and stability in your daily life.

Former New York City Detective Anngeannette Pinkston Premieres Her First Feature Film at the Jamaica Performing Arts Center

KEYS is a dramatic story inspired by criminal cases and my experiences while serving on the New York City Police Department.”

— Anngeannette Pinkston, writer and director of "KEYS."

STATEN ISLAND, NEW YORK, USA, January 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — First-time screenwriter and director Anngeannette Pinkston, a native New Yorker, premieres her feature film, "KEYS," on Friday, January 25, 2019 at 8:30 p.m. at the Jamaica Performing Arts Center, 153-10 Jamaica Avenue, Jamaica, Queens, New York 11432.

The crime drama set in Staten Island, New York features an ensemble cast led by acclaimed actor Hawthorne James as Chief Charlie Miller (Flint Tales, A Day of Trouble, Five Heartbeats, Speed). Joining James is Anthony Ferro as Detective Mike De Capos; Shawn McDonald as Detective Desmond Wright; Nyasia Mitchell as Carla Smyth and introducing Anngeannette Pinkston as Anngela Keys.

"Hawthorne, Anthony, Shawn and the entire cast and crew brought their A game to a story that is based on some criminal cases, as well as my own personal experiences, with added fiction," said Pinkston who worn many hats on the set of KEYS. "I was inspired to write a screenplay from a New Yorker's perspective and from the right side of the law."

KEYS explores the psyche of an unassuming group of four blue collar employees who can't seem to get their heads above financial waters. Carla Smyth, an active NYPD police officer; Jason Bloom, a postal worker; Jason's girlfriend and postal co-worker Christine; and Shae Blake, a twenty-year NYPD officer retiree, are tired of being broke. The group's first plan of action would involve Anngela Keys, a newly retired NYPD sergeant and successful entrepreneur, to get her opinion about pulling off robberies because they are in possession of actual keys to the city. Keys refuses to get involved. Ignoring the warnings of Keys, the foursome embark on a string of neighbor robberies but get a taste for something bigger.

The entire KEYS cast is confirmed to attend the premiere. Celebrities invited are the Original DJ Spindarella (Salt N Pepa); Grammy-winning Rapper Terrance Kelly known professionally as Mr. Cheeks (The Lost Boys); Bass Guitarist Corey Boyd, touring performer for Konvict Muzic, a record label founded by R&B singer Akon; Actor John Canada Terrell (She's Gotta Have It; Boomerang); and New Day Associates CEO and President John Blassingame (publisher of Black Men Magazine, Today’s Black Woman, and Hype Hair Magazine); Film Director Marc Cayce (Flint Tales, A Day of Trouble, Sasha Lanes); Corey and Tamara Galloway, owners of the New York Streets, the National Arena League's newest franchise; and more.

KEYS' film producer is Pinkston. James Brickhouse is the associate producer. KEYS film crew include Director of Photography and editor Douglas Ferguson. The title song, "KEYS," was composed by Shawn McDonald, one of the co-stars.

Prior to taking on the entertainment industry, Pinkston grew up surrounded by the typical temptations that plague big cities. She chose to follow the footsteps of her older brother Andrew who was in law enforcement. She graduated from the New York Police Academy and eventually became a detective and ultimately served 12 years in the Manhattan North Narcotics Division that caused her stress. “During my 8th year on the police force, I witnessed the worst tragedy in modern history – the 9/11 attacks,” said Pinkston. “I was in my early 30s and preparing to testify for a court case that morning. I arrived too early and decided to do some banking about 5 blocks from the World Trade Center.” At that moment from a clear vantage point, Pinkston witnessed in horror as the plane crashed into the tower as people fell or jumped to their death.

Pinkston was devastated but committed to serving the people of New York. “The following day, I was assigned to Fresh Kills Landfill on Staten Island, the site where debris and the remains from the World Trade Center were separated into evidence,” said Pinkston. Some victims, not having been recovered from the debris on site, were transported to the landfill. “We had to sort through the personal effects of people who had perished or was missing from the 9/11 incident.”

As a result, some of Pinkston's life experiences are expressed through her songwriting and storytelling on the stage, TV and film.

For interviews with the director and cast or talent and media submission, please contact Marie Lemelle of Platinum Star PR at 213-276-7827 or info@platinumstarpr.com.

377-lot auction includes fine Americana and folk art consigned by group’s member-dealers

The 377-lot auction focuses on excellent-quality Americana and folk art sourced entirely from NHADA member/dealers.”

— NHADA member and auction curator Cliff Wallach

NEW YORK, N.Y., UNITED STATES, January 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The New Hampshire Antiques Dealers Association (NHADA), one of the largest organizations of its kind, consists of nearly 300 knowledgeable members dedicated to integrity and fairness in all business dealings. The NHADA has teamed up with Jasper52 to present a January 24 auction featuring items consigned solely by members of the prestigious trade organization. Jasper52 helps select auction houses, dealers, galleries and now associations to conduct themed auctions whose goods are vetted by auctioneers and appraisers. Absentee and live online bidding for all Jasper52 auctions is available exclusively through LiveAuctioneers.

"The 377-lot auction focuses on excellent-quality Americana and folk art," said NHADA member and auction curator Cliff Wallach. One of the top items is a rare carousel goat carved by Salvatore Cernigliaro in the early 1900s at the Dentzel shop in Philadelphia’s historic Germantown neighborhood. With its original paint, the life-size carousel goat is one of a few that have survived in this condition. It is expected to sell for $30,000-$35,000.

Of the dozen paintings offered in the auction, perhaps none is more charming than the portrait of a girl and her dog by Justus Englehart Kuhn, a German immigrant who settled and worked in Annapolis, Maryland, from 1708 to 1717. Several prominent Maryland families patronized Kuhn, and the girl in this painting is possibly one of the Carroll children. The Maryland Historical Society owns two identified Kuhn paintings of children. This painting, which measures 39 by 29 inches, has a $32,000-$43,000 estimate.

The auction contains many antiques originating in New England. Native to New Hampshire is a cast-iron rooster weather vane manufactured by Rochester Iron Works in Rochester, New Hampshire, circa 1860. The barn-topping bird retains its original sheet-metal tail and an old weathered surface. It comes with a metal base for display. Est. $12,000-$13,500

A wooden bust of a young woman served as a figurehead of a boat in the mid-1800s. Measuring 12 by 11 by 8 inches, the carving in old paint is believed to have come from a longboat used by a ship’s crew to go ashore. Est. $10,000-$12,000

Virginia folk artist Frank Finney (b. 1947-) has been carving decoys since he was a child. His entry in the NHADA auction is a well-executed running quail showing the extraordinary form that Finney so capably depicts through carving. Leaves and acorns are carved into its 8-inch-long base. The realistically painted gamebird measures 6½ inches tall by 9 inches long. Est. $1,200-$1,700

Another auctiοn highlight is an 1890s gambling machine made by Caille Bros of Detroit. The countertop coin-op machine would award cigars to the player spinning a winning poker hand in the reels. Its wooden case is surmounted by an ornate nickel-plated front. The machine is original and in working order. Est. $2,000-$2,500

Additional treasures in this large auction include quilts, hooked rugs, toys and gameboards, tramp art, trade signs and mocha ware, to name but a few of the standouts.

The NHADA auction of Americana and folk art, hosted by Jasper52, will take place Thursday, January 24, beginning at 6 p.m. Eastern. Bid absentee or live via the Internet through LiveAuctioneers.

The NHADA also sponsors the annual New Hampshire Antiques Show, which features 67 of the country’s finest antiques dealers. The 2019 edition will be held Aug. 8-10 in Manchester, New Hampshire. Visit the NHADA online at www.nhada.org.

Izzy Freeman, Owner of Izzy’s Deli, Wins Best of Los Angeles Award- “Best Deli – Santa Monica, 2019”

“We're honored to include Izzy Freeman of Izzy’s Deli once again into our BoLAA family.” ~Aurora DeRose

SANTA MONICA, CA, UNITED STATES, January 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Izzy Freeman, the owner and founder of Izzy’s Deli in Santa Monica, wins Best of Los Angeles Award– “Best Deli – Santa Monica, 2019”, according to Aurora DeRose, award coordinator for the Best of Los Angeles Award community.

The “Best of Los Angeles Award” community was formed four years ago and consists of over 4,600 professional members living and working in Southern California. It celebrates the best people, places and things in Los Angeles with a slogan “No Ads. No B.S. Only the Best.”

“The mission of the community is to celebrate the best of Los Angeles, and allow its community members to connect with other members who share the highest standards of quality and integrity,” expresses DeRose. "We're honored to include Izzy Freeman of Izzy’s Deli once again into our BoLAA family."

A man of many talents, Izzy opened the Deli in 1973 with Kenny Horowitz. Originally, Izzy owned two IHOPS in Los Angeles and the plan was for Kenny to run the Deli and Izzy to run the IHOPS. “I helped him open the deli on a Monday morning and I never left,” Izzy explains, “The big sandwiches, the pickles, the smells and tastes, they were part of my childhood. I dreamt that one day I would own a deli, and my dream finally came true.”

Izzy’s was the first major deli in Santa Monica, and from the beginning, it was a wild success. Customers waited in line for overstuffed corned beef and pastrami sandwiches, matzo ball soup, roasted turkeys and the best New-York-style rye bread. In the many years since, the popularity of the Deli has only increased, being featured multiple times on Larry David’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and winning numerous awards including “Best Designed Restaurant” to “Best All Night Restaurant,” as well as winning several Best of Los Angeles awards.

In August of 2018, Izzy’s celebrated its 45th Anniversary and while much has changed in Santa Monica over the years, walking into Izzy’s is like stepping into a delicious-smelling time capsule. “There are some good restaurants in Santa Monica but they come and go and so does the staff. At Izzy’s, everybody knows the customers. Some people come in here every single day,” Izzy said.

Over the years, Izzy’s has served loyal customers nearly 5,000,000 matzo balls, 6,000,000 kosher pickles and 3,000,000 corned beef sandwiches on rye.

Celebrities from all walks of life have come into Izzy’s to enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner or dessert, with their photos donning the deli’s walls on Izzy’s Celebrity Wall of Fame. “45 years is an accomplishment,” Izzy said. “After 45 years, my customers and employees are like family. If you're hungry, but don't know what you're hungry for, come to Izzy's Deli Santa Monica. You're sure to find something on our diverse menu to satisfy any craving.”

Rick Nobles Offers Tips on Protecting Your Home & Business from Fire Damage

Rick Nobles

Fires can affect your home and business without warning. Rick Nobles offers solutions for preparing against this type of disaster.

BOWLING GREEN, KENTUCKY, UNITED STATES, January 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — According to the United States Fire Association and FEMA, there were over 1.3 million fires in 2017, resulting in over 23 billion dollars in damages. Most of these fires can be avoided by increasing awareness and safeguarding your home or business with new and updated technology.

Rick Nobles with ProTouch understands how disruptive events like this can be to your family and place of business and will always be there in your time of need, providing professional crews to help you recover throughout the entire process.

One tip Rick Nobles recommend to families and businesses is to test and upgrade your smoke alarms. By properly maintaining your smoke alarms, and testing the batteries once per month, you can be prepared for any situation in case something goes wrong.

According to Nationwide Children’s Hospital, maternal voice smoke alarms are three times more likely and more effective in waking children than conventional tone alarms.

“In my experience, families, and businesses never truly prepare in advance,” explained Rick Nobles. Part of our job is to educate people to take steps now, to ensure their safety if a disaster ever occurs.”

Another tip is to always get your heating sources inspected. An annual inspection can help reduce your risk of fire, and if you ever use a space heater, always inspect it before and after each use and place them at least three feet away from anything that could catch on fire.

Another tip Rick Nobles recommends is always paying attention to your stove and oven and never leaving anything flammable around them. Make sure there isn’t anything hanging above the stove, and that all towels and cookbooks are a safe distance away.

By maintaining your cords, and keeping an eye out for frayed wires can also eliminate a huge risk for fires. Rick Nobles always recommends repairing or replacing the cords that seem to be damaged immediately. Electrical cords can produce heat, so don’t trap them under a rug or between furniture and the wall, as this can lead to fires as well.

In the event that you do experience a fire-related disaster, Rick Nobles and ProTouch are here to help and can access the damage and present you and your family with all of your options including an action plan and communicating with you every step of the way, until everything has been completed.

Five Steps for Creating Your First Blog with Kala McCrayer

Kala McCrayer

Thinking about starting a blog? Check out these essential steps you need to follow with blogging expert Kala McCrayer.

FAYETTEVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA, UNITED STATES, January 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — In 2019 the question, “Is blogging still relevant?” gets bandied about fairly often. The answer, as I’m sure you can guess if you’re reading this article, is a resounding yes. Blogging is as relevant as it ever has been, and shows no sign of slowing down. In fact, the number of blogs and the relevant number of readers has shot up dramatically in the last few years as companies have realized the importance of using a blog for SEO purposes. With that in mind, we’re going to take a look at five important steps for creating your first blog with the help of blogging expert Kala McCrayer.

Choose your niche

“Every blog needs a niche.” Kala McCrayer says. “Those without one quickly fall into obscurity and never get read.” A blog needs a central topic, a theme. It allows readers interested in a particular topic to find information about that topic in one centralized place, mainly your blog. Without a niche, your blog will join the ranks of countless other generalized blogs floating around in the ether.

Decide on your blog’s name

According to Kala McCrayer, your blog’s name is the first thing that people will see, so it needs to be catchy and memorable. Take your time with this one, as the name also has to contribute to the overall brand identity of your blog. It has to resonate with readers while also reaffirming exactly what your blog is about. Take a look at other blogs within your niche for inspiration, and use some creativity to come up with something that your readers will remember instantly.

Find a reliable hosting provider

Your blog is reliant on your hosting provider and that means you need one that will never falter or cause your site to go down. Every second you’re not online is a potential lost reader, so you’ll need to find a provider that’s extremely reliable.

Develop a content strategy

Content should not just be created when you feel inspiration strike. According to Kala McCrayer, you’ll need a strategy in place so that you can plan your content days, weeks and even months in advance. This will give you some breathing room should you not feel inspired to write or post that very day.

Create amazing content

Content is king. It’s the saying that has dominated blogging since its inception and it still holds true today. Without valuable content your blog is nothing, so ensure that each post is well-written, well-researched, provides value and uses incredible photography to really draw your readers in. “It’s a no brainer.” Kala McCrayer says. “Without great content, your blog simple won’t take off.”
