Hugging Newark cops wins national recognition

Filed under: Uncategorized — dr_mike @ 12:28 pm

Hugs are winners

And so is a photo of Newark police hugging people along Main Street, according to the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office). The office, a component of the U.S. Department of Justice responsible for advancing community policing practices, announced Thursday that the image of Newark police Cpl. James Spadola and Officer Aaron Olicker giving free hugs last year was among the 12 winners of the COPS Office 2016 Community Policing in Action Photo Contest.

“While community policing has been a focus of the Newark Police Department for many years now, the recognition of our department by the Office of Community Oriented  Policing Services (COPS) is a great honor and something for our community to be proud of,” said Carol Houck, Newark’s city manager.

Do dentists have the highest suicide rate?

Filed under: Uncategorized — tntadmin @ 5:02 pm

Ever since I wanted to become a dentist decades ago, people have told me that dentists have the highest suicide rate. I love my profession and my life and do not have any suicidal thoughts. I have since learned that there may have been a study supporting that thesis, but that it was a very small and flawed study, and that actually suicide rates among dentists are similar to suicide rates among other professionals.

Now the CDC has released a study showing that farmers, lumberjacks, and fisherman have the highest suicide rates. From CBS news: Dentists, doctors and other health-care professionals had an 80 percent lower suicide rate than the farmers, fishermen and lumberjacks.

Strangers get errant text, visit new mom in hospital

Filed under: Uncategorized — dr_mike @ 4:23 pm

A woman spreading the word about her new grandson accidentally texted a complete stranger on Saturday. He responded in the best possible way.

Deorick Williams of Tallahassee, Fla., tells Fox 13 that his brother, Dennis Williams, started getting texts about the impending birth of a baby at a hospital in Bainbridge, Ga. “We are at the hospital. Having a baby today!” read the first, according to a Facebook post that has so far been shared 195,000 times.

“Congrats lol but I think someone got the wrong number,” Dennis replied. Then came a photo of newborn Cason Knox, born to parents Mark and Lindsey Lashley, per WTHR. “Well I don’t know Yall but me and the boys will be thru to take picture with the baby,” Dennis added.

The grandmother quickly apologized for having included him in the group conversation, but the Williams brothers were adamant that they wanted to meet the new baby and his parents. And they indeed appeared at the hospital — having driven an hour from their home — bearing gifts of diapers, pacifiers, and baby bottles, reports ABC News. They also took a photo with the new parents.

“We had a great time,” Deorick says. “I was invited already, so I thought I might as well go. And why not bring gifts?”

“What a blessing these two guys were to our family,” the grandmother adds on Facebook. “They were so sweet and kind to do this! You 2 are great guys and thank you for giving to someone you didn’t know! … If we all only had this kind of a heart.”

Corey shares some Yu-gi-oh tips

Filed under: Uncategorized — dr_mike @ 10:33 pm

Corey Roca (Dr. Mike’s stepson) is one of the country’s leading Yu-gi-oh card players. He consistently does well in many of the card tournaments up and down the east coast. Here he is interviewed about the intricacies of the game at a card tournament in Charlotte, where he finished in the top 16. Although I can’t really understand the stuff he’s talking about, he seems to know a lot about the topic. I also frequently tell Tina that Corey is lucky to have inherited my good looks.

Angie switches son at age 2!

Filed under: Uncategorized — dr_mike @ 10:15 pm

Angies son
Our hygienist Angie and her husband Warren Sr. have a beautiful son Warren, Jr., who plays on the Smyrna Clayton Ducks soccer team that Angie’s husband coaches. You can see Warren Jr. (the cute blonde-haired boy) standing next to his dad in the team photo. Well, unfortunately, the youngster hasn’t been playing very well so Angie and Warren Sr. decided to trade him for another boy who scores more goals (seen in the picture on the right).
