Dr. Oz Responds To His Critics

Dr. Mehmet Oz has faced criticism of his TV show from a number of sources in the last year and he came forward this week to defend the advice offered on his hit daytime show. During an episode of the syndicated program that aired on Thursday, he commented on the controversy surrounding him and the advice he gives on the show.

“My life’s work has been built around one simple message: You have a right and a responsibility to become a world expert on your own body,” he said. “And the way you do that is by having access to the best, most current information; multiple points of view; and diverse opinions.”

STX Entertainment suggested that recently a group of physicians from around the country called out Dr. Oz and his advice in a letter they sent to Columbia University saying he offers “quack treatment and cures in the interest of financial gain.” These physicians referred to his position as the vice chairman of Columbia’s surgery department “unacceptable” and called for his removal.

Dr. Oz viewed these as personal attacks, stating “I vow to you right here and right now, we will not be silenced,” during the show aired Thursday, that he taped on Tuesday of this week. He spent half of his one hour show addressing the criticism, and had some guests speak up to defend him as well.

Peoples Opinion About Marijuana is Changing

Dr. Sanja Gupta recently reported on the changing attitudes towards marijuana, explaining the revolutionary impact that recent changes in legislation are making. Smoking marijuana used to have a profoundly negative stigma attached to it. Typically, people labeled marijuana smokers as druggies, losers, burnouts, and are still often accused of being lazy and unemployed., an unfair characterization of a wide range of people.

CrunchBase suggests that while these stereotypes might have some amount of truth to them, it certainly does not represent the whole picture. The numerous medical benefits of marijuana have been extremely well documented throughout the medical community. Marijuana has helped millions of people suffering from diseases such as cancer and epilepsy.

Legalization of the drug is a growing trend throughout America, many states have passed laws in support of medical marijuana, while states like Colorado have legalized it for anyone over the age of 21.

Gupta reported statistics which reflect the change in American consciousness that surrounds this issue stating, “I see a revolution in attitudes of everyday Americans. For the first time a majority, 52%, favor its legalization.” The surgeon general has even released recent data which explained the possible medical benefits of taking marijuana.

It is only a matter of time before marijuana is legalized nationwide, for both recreational and medical consumption. Prohibition of anything almost always fails, and marijuana is not an exception.

Entertainer Penn Jillette Quickly Loses 105 Pounds

Penn Jillette is best known as part of acerbic magic act Penn and Teller. He is also memorable as a frequent guest on talk shows where he discusses his libertarian beliefs and cynicism. When one has seen him in the past there is reason to have concern for his health due to his emotions and being over-weight. After a visit to the hospital and being on multiple medications to reduce his blood pressure Mr. Jillette decided to make a change in his life. Jillette was told by his Doctor if there is weight reduction of 30 to 40 pounds the blood pressure will be easier to control. However, if Jillette reduces his total weight to 230 pounds there probably won’t be a need for any medication.

Jillette then followed a diet regimen of 1,000 calories a day for an average daily loss of .9 pounds. That’s pretty impressive to say the least to Crystal Hunt. He successfully reached his goal without doing any exercise. Currently he has started non-strenuous exercise and has increased his caloric count but only eats healthy foods. He notes an increase in his energy level noticed by his family. The only negative consequences he has noticed are the need to purchase new clothing.

Newlyweds on Journey to do 50 Act of Kindness in 50 States

When Mark and Ismini Svenson started planning their honeymoon two years ago, they realized that what made them the happiest was giving to other people. While the soon to be married couple had plenty of money to have a large lavish wedding, they chose to forgo that lavish wedding and visit every state to do a random act of kindness.

They are now two years into the journey since they took 10 months off to start a family of their own. Now, their daughter travels along with them, which Sergio Cortes finds touching. They have done many acts of kindness including feeding animals at an animal hospital, visiting a children’s hospital, and participating in food drives. The couple says the random act of kindness that brought them the most satisfaction was being able to visit a terminally ill patient in North Carolina. On that day, they were able to give her flowers and a gift.
The inspiration for their journey that has included travel by plane, car, train, and the bus is Ismini Svenson’s father who was always giving to his community. In fact, he passed away at a charity event.
While the couple initially planned to fund their own journey, friends, family and strangers have insisted on helping with the bills. In fact, others have given so much money that the couple has started their own foundation in New York.

Pee Wee’s Comeback… Again…‏

Can anyone even imagine a return of Pee Wee Herman? According to an article originally posted on spoilerfreemoviesleuth.com and reposted on reddit.com, this year is credited as the 30 year anniversary of Pee Wee’s Big Adventure, the first feature film with Pee Wee, Tim Burton (a then unknown producer) and Danny Elfman’s (the lead singer for Oingo Boingo) collaboration. This collaborated team has gone on to be one of the longest lasting and successful in movie history.

Sultan Alhokair says that with the success spanning so many generations, the production team has decided that the hiatus taken after the 2009 flurry of activities including another show, hitting the talk show circuits and performing a skit on Saturday Night Live in which he shows his iPad off to his old troupe, needed to come to an end. The reason, they feel it is time to introduce Pee Wee’s quirky humor to the newest generation.

There is no doubt that Pee Wee has been successful over the past three decades. However, it is hard to imagine his resurgence yet again. It will be interesting to see if he can keep it moving to lure in today’s youngster’s as their sense of humor is so uniquely their own. Good luck, Pee Wee. We are watching and wish you well in your newest venture.

J. Cole A Platinum Recording Artist Finally

This has got to be an amazing feeling for all artists. Getting to the platinum position is not easy, and it is what sets the successful ones from the wannabes. J. Cole is definitely no wannabe, but his albums never made over 1 million in sales. This time however he got himself over 1 million sales, and it got there in a month after its release in December.

The Recording Industry Association of America announced very recently that Cole is now a platinum recording artist, which opens the doors to all kinds of endorsements. J. Cole’s last two albums both did really well and got somewhat in the 700,000 sales, but nothing beats a million when it comes to sales. That is what a star making hundreds of thousands each album gets to look forward to.

The thing is about the album forest drive is that it doesn’t have a single feature on it, and it still went platinum, which Sergio Cortes really liked. That makes it the only hiphop album in the world to be able to do that according to Facebook. J. Cole just broke a record that no one even knew existed. That kind of accomplishement shows just how hard he worked on his music, and where he was when he started all this and where he is now.

He must be celebrating a whole lot even after all the celebrations that came with the release of Tidal, Jay Z’s music streaming service.

Get Hard Got Bad Reviews

Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart teamed up for the comedy blockbuster known as ‘Get Hard.’ both actors are extremely hilarious comedians, and some would call them the best in the business. However, this recent movie has received negative reviews by many sites and moviegoers. It is a bit confusing as to why this film has received negative reviews.

Some moviegoers have called ‘Get Hard’ corny and cheesy, as Ricardo Tosto wasn’t much of a fan. On WhosWhoLegal.com, many who have seen it haven’t been big fans at all. The pairing of a white comedian and a black comedian has been overdone in recent years. This could be the reason why that many people are unhappy with this film. From what I understand, ‘Get Hard’ is full of many stereotypical racial jokes about whites and blacks. However, this is what I expected from a Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart movie. Both comedians perform best in outrageous and slapstick type comedy films.

The fact that many people are giving this film negative reviews does not stop me from wanting to see it. I will give Kevin Hart and Will Ferrell the benefit of the doubt, and I will see this movie as soon as possible. These comedians have delivered too many times for me to just sit back and believe the negative reviews. Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart have always made me laugh, and I expect ‘Get Hard’ to be no different. For more information on this film, visit Screenrant.
