Hollywood and Dine
We had the perfect start to your morning! Lemon Ricotta Pancakes with sausage and bacon! David borrowed the recipe from his recent interview with Hugh Jackman and whipped up the fancy hotcakes for the crew.
Your Guide to the Health Food Store
We always here about the latest and greatest health food trends…but if you’re like us, you might still be a little confused! Here to help make sense of some of them was Kristin Kirkpatrick, a Registered Dietician at The Cleveland Clinic.
Cargill Salt Mines
On a day like today, you know the snow plows and salt trucks are hard at work. David took us behind the scenes – or should we say “under the scenes” – to where all that salt comes from. We traveled to the Cargill Salt Mines!
1890 at the Arcade
Did you know the first large indoor shopping mall was in Cleveland? We are talking about the Arcade. If you haven’t been lately, Kristi gave you a reason to go! Check out our video of 1890 at the Arcade.
You can enter the Arcade on Euclid Avenue – which is also where you’ll find valet parking.
Best Ways to Brew Coffee
In need of a pick-me-up? The coffee expert, Anne Denton from Red Cedar Coffee, joined David in the kitchen for the newest in brewing! Check out “the Chemex,” a glass brewer invented in 1940 by a chemist. The glass does not break down over time like plastic coffee brewers and is not porous. The special coffee filters have been designed to have a smooth and more flavorful cup.
I’m sure you’ve heard the news by now – Kristi is expecting! So, we decided her training started today! We brought in Suzanne DeGaetano, owner of Mac’s Backs in Cleveland Heights, to go over some great books for before and after baby. Watch our video clip for a list of her favorites!
University Hospitals: Mental Health
This may be considered a taboo topic – no one wants to talk about their child having a mental illness, but there are many misconceptions. Dr. Molly McVoy, a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist from University Hospitals joined David.
What does Dr. McVoy want you to know?
- Most people with mental illness are not violent.
- Most violent acts are committed by people who are not mentally ill.
- People with serious mental illness are far more likely to be the victims of violence than its initiators and more likely to be victims than the general public.
- Substance abuse is a major factor in much of the increased risk of violence among those who are mentally ill.
- People with substance use disorders are nearly three times more likely to have committed a violent act in the last year (19.7%) than people with mental illness (7%).
- Incidence of violence was slightly higher for people with severe mental illness, but only significantly higher for those with co-occurring substance use disorders.
