'The Doctors' Discuss So-Called 'Blackberry Thumb' (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Dec 8th 2009 4:00PM
Text addicts can breathe a sigh of relief: According to 'The Doctors,' there's nothing yet that conclusively proves the existence of the condition "Blackberry Thumb."

It's been argued that the condition is a repetitive stress injury caused by excessive use of handheld devices, and that pain in the wrist and thumb, and even osteoarthritis, can result.

Barbra Streisand talks to The Doctors

streisand_afiThere will be an interesting guest checking in with The Doctors today -- Barbra Streisand. No, the singer/actress/director won't be talking about dry throat or stage fright or even tinnitus, an ailment she suffers from that causes an unending high-pitched ringing in the ears.

Barbra Streisand is calling in to The Doctors to discuss heart health awareness for women... and even though I've never watched The Doctors, I will today. I guess that's why and how celebrity helps causes like this. It draws attention and, presumably, I'm going to get something of value out of tuning in. I've already had my eyes opened.

'The Doctors': Candy-Crazed Kids Could Turn Violent (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Nov 9th 2009 12:45PM
'The Doctors' discuss a new study establishing a link between kids who eat large amounts of candy and their likelihood to commit violent crimes in adulthood. But before you decide to toss what remains of your child's Halloween candy, parents should know the study focuses on large, daily doses of candy, not what children typically consume during the holiday.

The panel on 'The Doctors' seems to disagree whether the cause is ultimately related to sugar or insulin levels, or whether daily treats set an expectation in children that manifests in violence later in life when denied something. One thing is certain, however; parents now have a reason other than tooth decay to limit the amount of candy their children eat.

Syndication Ads: Are we hooked on Big Macs, Cheetos and Drugs?

by Jane Boursaw, posted Jun 19th 2008 2:01PM
Oprah WinfreyTV syndication upfront ad sales are brisk, with syndicators expected to sell higher levels of ad inventory, similar to the broadcast networks.

Sales are more than 50% complete, with one syndicator, Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution, more than 70% sold out of its 2008-09 ad inventory, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

What's it all mean? It means that syndication upfront totals are expected to be around $2.4 billion, up 4.5% from last year.

Maybe one reason is that syndicators are incorporating more product integration into their packages, especially with talk and entertainment shows. Strong categories include packaged goods, pharmaceuticals, movies, and fast food.

Hmmm ... I wonder what they're saying. That TV viewers sit around eating Big Macs, doing drugs, and woofing down Cheetos? Yeah, that can't be right.
