Perfect Timing: How Do You Know When It's Time To Do Joint Replacement?
Dr. Michaela Schneiderbauer,
10:29AM / Friday, August 09, 2019

Joint replacement surgeries are some of the most popular and successful operations being performed today. In fact, in 2017, more than 1.6 million Americans underwent hip or knee replacement. And in 90 percent of the cases, the patient is happy with the result.

If you're someone who suffers from chronic joint pain and you hear about those kind of results, it's easy to think "replacement surgery is for me." And you may be right. But surgery is, shall we say, a big deal and should rarely be your first course of action. While joint replacement can be life-changing, it can also be painful, there's always the risk of infection, and devices can wear down prematurely. For

It might not be on your calendar, but Aug. 14 is Social Security Day. Since it was enacted on Aug. 14, 1935, Social Security has provided some financial support for millions of Americans during their retirement years. While Social Security benefits, by themselves, probably aren't enough to enable you to retire comfortably, they can be a key part of your overall retirement income strategy – if you use them wisely.

To help you make decisions about Social Security, you will need to answer these questions:

When should I start taking my benefits? You can take Social Security once you reach 62, but if you wait until your full retirement age, which will probably be between 66 and 67,

Belltower bought out the inventory of the former Toonerville Trolley. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Belltower Records has settled into the community as a hub for music fans, musicians, and audiophiles alike.   It is easy to lose a few hours on the third floor of the Norad Mill digging through the overflowing record crates at the independent music store.   "We have just been longtime collectors, my wife and I, and we have been looking to do something for a while and we basically stumbled upon this," owner Wes Nelson said recently.   With news that Hal March, owner of Toonerville Trolley Records in Williamstown, was looking to close and sell his business in 2017, a

The Independent Investor: Will We race to the Bottom?

Financial markets are in turmoil. President Trump's trade war is escalating, and with it, fears that both China and the U.S. will employ a new weapon, currency devaluation, to win the war. Is that a wise move?   The last time the country devalued the dollar outright was on Dec. 18, 1971, when President Nixon took the country off the gold standard. Since then, there have been times when various administrations have nudged the dollar down, but most American presidents have maintained a strong-dollar policy.   However, over the course of the last two years, President Trump has increasingly complained that the United States is at an unfair advantage versus other countries that are


'The Farewell': And a Fond One at That

Every so often, some philosophically inclined sort seeks a window into your soul by asking, "If you could spend time with anyone now deceased, who would it be, pray tell?"    Akin in hypocrisy to first wishing for world peace or a cure for cancer before asking for a Ferrari whence blowing out my birthday candles, I perfunctorily answer, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln or Ben Franklin. However, after seeing the delightfully heartwarming, bittersweet and often hilarious "The Farewell," about a Chinese family who throws a wedding as pretense for gathering to say goodbye to their terminally ill matriarch, I thought of the grandmother I never knew.   Anna
