Walking for Mom: One Woman’s Quest for Alzheimer’s First Survivor


By Catherine Nouhan Charlene Mangi is joining hundreds in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease at the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s in Ann Arbor on October 7. Her journey with Alzheimer’s disease began ten years ago when Kathleen, Charlene’s mother, began showing signs of younger-onset Alzheimer’s disease. Charlene and her father, Jim, knew that there was a problem, but did not first suspect Alzheimer’s disease. Kathleen was only in her late fifties; she would get very upset if Charlene or Jim suggested that she was experiencing some form of memory loss. “My mom has always been really smart, very intellectual and independent, [...]

Do It Your Way | Choosing to Do What You Love


By Kristen Domingue In our interview with Kelly Callison of a2vintage, an online and offline vintage and antique dealer, we noticed her commitment to doing what she loved and how much it informed every choice in her life. Whether she’s in the process of reclaiming something once-loved for resale, or simply living and loving her family and friends, Kelly is a model of what it means to put love first. Kelly is is a sterling example of what it looks like when we let love win — both in business and in life. ___ I went to graduate school at the University [...]

Light Layers: Best Outerwear for Early Fall


By Angela Harrison Happy fall, y’all! For Michiganders, I think it’s safe to say this is one of our favorite seasons. Though fall temps and colors don’t last long, we seem to find a way to milk it for all it’s got, and that includes the fashion. October tends to be a tricky month for dressing — we experience a whole range of weather, which can make it hard to know what to wear. Mornings can start out chilly and then reach 75 degrees, making that coat you brought for running around town seem like a cruel joke. So, what’s the [...]

Woman on the Street | The Puerto Rican and the Swede


By Stephanie Saline I’d popped out of my house to check and see if the mail had come yet. It hadn’t yet, but I looked up and noticed Louis was in his car, idling. Louis is a retired police officer whose adult daughters live in the house across the street. He sometimes sits in his car in front of our house, waiting with his windows down. It’s always struck me as a retired police officer thing to do. Side bar: I don’t think I’ve ever seen Louis outside his car. I didn’t have anywhere particular to be, so I ran down [...]

Good EMF: The Benefits of Bioenergy


By Lisa Profera, MD Fall is here and the days are getting shorter. That means colder weather, more overcast days, and less sunlight. It also means less outdoor time in general. Most of us have heard of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD): a condition of low energy and moodiness due to less exposure to sunlight or full-spectrum light. However, did you know that people can also experience bodily dysfunction and fatigue when they don’t get enough electromagnetic energy input from the ground? Although there is no “official” name for this condition, I refer to it as Bio-Energy Dysfunction Disorder (BEDD). We are [...]

What Are You Afraid Of? (Those Monsters Hiding Under Your Bed Might Just Be Dust Bunnies)


By Bridget Baker   Goblins, ghouls, and the zombie apocalypse are the stuff of horror movies and haunted houses. Going into your closet and unearthing those skeletons of clutter can be even more frightening. Closets, basements, garages, and even spare bedrooms are where all of the things we've been avoiding get shoved or stored. Even if we have cleverly disguised our clutter skeletons with fancy costumes via neatly-labeled storage bins, it is still the deep, dark recesses of what we have been putting off that lurks in the shadows. With the onset of cold weather and less sunlight in the day than [...]
