It’s Time to Worry

The markets are at the wildest they’ve been in a full decade. December was the worst month for both the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 Index since the Great Depression. For a time, if the market dropped a few points, we’d laugh when the financial news brought out the “Markets in Crisis” graphics for what was just noise. But things have gotten more serious.

Why Your Wife Wants You to Lose Weight

Want a good reason to lose weight in the new year? Shedding pounds will help your sex life. And I’m not just talking about ­looking more attractive. I’m talking about a way to help combat a common problem that men rarely discuss: erectile dysfunction (ED). About one in five men age 60 and older suffer from ED. But many refuse to seek medical help. They might turn to alternative options, which are dangerous. If you remember, last year, the FDA cracked down on…
