Q. Do copper bracelets relieve arthritis pain?

There is no scientific evidence that copper bracelets do anything more than make a fashion statement. However, there is no proof that the bracelets don't provide relief to arthritis sufferers.

Copper bracelets for arthritis have been around for a century or more. Many people swear that they work. Some doctors suspect that the positive reports are based upon symptoms going away by themselves.

Movie Review: Fielding 'Elysium'

Wednesday, August 21, 2013 by PAUL WILLISTEIN in Focus

"Elysium" is a science fiction metaphor for the haves and have-nots of today.

In the year 2154, the super-rich live on a huge bicycle wheel-shaped space station orbiting Earth. It is a Garden of Eden. The wealthy are coddled in Boca-Raton meets Disney World surroundings. Health-care "med-pods" heal patients completely and quickly.

Down below, the whole Earth has become the Third World. Los Angeles is reduced to shanty towns such as those, for example, surrounding Mexico City.

Valley native returns to lead marketing outreach of the United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley

The way to United Way for Lenore Mohr was from Parkland High School to Hollywood and back to the Lehigh Valley.

Mohr, named Director, Marketing & Communications, United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley, in mid-January, says her work for the organization is a dream-come-true for her.

"I felt I was guided into this position and that it was meant to be for me," says Mohr of Bethlehem, who returned to the Lehigh Valley after 20 years working in the Hollywood movie and media business.
