ANTI- TRANSGENDER: Bathroom Laws and Why Good People Fall for This Destructive Political Charade

You may have heard a thing or two about controversial “anti-transgender bathroom bills” and confusing messages about what it means to be transgender. Although most of the proposed and existing bathroom legislation includes trans men and trans women, I’m going to focus primarily on trans women because we’re the main target of misleading political propaganda and fearmongering tactics. So, what’s all the fuss about transgender bathroom use and how come no one seemed to care until about a year ago? I’ll attempt to explain that and reveal dangerous implications that may affect all women transgender or not.

SENIOR LIFE

Does Mom Need Help or Do I?

The old saying “you don’t know what you don’t know” often applies to those who realize that they or their parent’s life is becoming increasingly difficult as the effects of aging sets in. Challenges with activities of daily living, memory, health and social interaction can make the desired lifestyle difficult to maintain. But, without prior experience dealing with aging transitions, none of us know how to research, understand and make decisions about the best options for the next phase of our lives or the lives of our aging loved ones.

Meet Sean Furey: Niagara County’s Supermodel

Niagara County Deputy Sean Furey’s partner hails from the Eastern European country that has been known to produce the most “supermodels.”  The 85 pound rich sable colored German Shepherd with Czech lines is a rock star in his own right.  Although Vedder was not by Deputy Furey’s side last summer when he along with a group of volunteer firefighters, City Police and fellow deputies rescued a man with onset dementia who had wandered from his home 11 days earlier.  Continue reading

ENCORE CHOCOLATES

With Valentine’s Day rapidly approaching, the scent of chocolate is in the air.  Did you know the first Valentine’s box of candy appeared in 1861 (1). 20 billion dollars are spent on Valentine’s Day (2). Chocolate was tagged a drink for royalty during Aztec times according to Montezuma (3). Known as the “food of the Gods” and then an aphrodisiac chocolate contains phenyl ethylamine, causing excitement, attraction and pleasure (3). Early explorers brought chocolate back to Europe (2).

Fiamma Centro: Not Just Typical Pizza

If there’s anything I know as a Long Islander-turned-Rochesterian, it’s that pizza preferences are highly subjective. What I consider to be a superior slice (thin, tender crust, not too much sauce), is replaced in this region by a far more sauce heavy, doughy crust companion. I’m not complaining, to each their own. But in the grand debate of what the perfect slice really is, there are some markers of excellence that you can’t really ignore – whether you’re from Rochester or you’re from Salerno, Italy.
