Healthy Geezer: Testosterone

Friday, April 7, 2017 by FRED CICETTI in Focus

Q. Will taking testosterone bring back the virility of my youth?

There is some controversy about whether testosterone therapy should be used in men who have naturally lower testosterone levels because of aging. It remains unclear whether restoring earlier testosterone levels benefits older men.

Review:‘Get Out’

Friday, April 7, 2017 by PAUL WILLISTEIN in Focus

“Get Out” is a weird, wild and wacky horror film.

The theatrical movie screenplay and directorial debut by Jordan Peele (Emmy recipient, Outstanding Variety Sketch Series, for TV’s ”Key and Peele” (with Keegan-Michael Key), 2016; writer, theatrical feature, “Keanu,” 2016), is also a phenom.

The budget of “Get Out” was about $4.5 million. As of the March 31 weekend, “Get Out” has grossed $156.9 million domestically.
