Two Women on Wine: Bottle battles -- screw cap vs. cork

For baby boomers who remember the days of Boone's Farm and Blue Nun, screw caps on wine bottles have a long-standing stigma associated with cheap, soda pop wines.

Review: 'Repo Men'

"Repo Men" makes sci-fi's strongest possible case for universal health care. In a world of the near future, where they still drive current cars, a giant corporation named the Union will provide you with a human heart, kidney, liver or other organ. Let's say a pancreas costs you, oh, say $312,000. No, it's not covered by insurance, but the sales guy says, "You owe it to yourself and your family." For a guy in need of a pancreas, this is an eloquent argument. Interest rates are around 19 percent.

Review: 'The Bounty Hunter'

I'm on the brink of declaring a new entry for Ebert's Little Movie Glossary: No comedy not titled "Caddyshack" has ever created a funny joke involving a golf cart. The only thing preventing me is that I can't remember if "Caddyshack" had golf cart jokes. In any event, if there is a golf cart, it will sooner or later drive into a water hazard. The funny angle here is that the filmmakers went to all that trouble because they trusted the audience to laugh.

Review: 'The Runaways'

"The Runaways," chronicling the rise and fall of Joan Jett's first band, easily could have degenerated into a movie-length music video, with Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning merely glam-rock poseurs.

Tammy Messina: Homework makes for a better America

There are many issues to be addressed in our nation today, including energy, economy and health care. And with each one, there is a broad spectrum of ideologies suggested to resolve the issue. To say that these ideological differences cause plenty of controversy would be a gross understatement.

The importance of beauty in everyday life

Not long ago, two interesting studies showed the power of beauty to influence human experience. Two researchers in Japan (Kurosu and Kashimura) did a study to test the correlation between aesthetics - how pretty or nice something looks - and how people rate the usability of the object.

Free colorectal cancer screening kits at hospital

Last year, almost 50,000 deaths in the United States were attributed to colon cancer; but despite medical experts' recommendations, many people choose to avoid a quick, relatively painless lifesaving test for the dreaded disease.

Why I support Boydston

I read last Sunday's editorial ("All things considered, we recommend...," March 14) with amazement. It's not that The Signal editorial board recommended no changes for all three seats on the City Council, it's that the editorial board doesn't seem to understand how our City Hall actually works.

If I purchase a "gift" for myself with funds from my spouse's separate bank account, and later the marriage sours, does my spouse have a right to be reimbursed for his or her generosity?

Busting misconceptions about investor perceptions

We all know that perception often influences our decisions, yet we catch ourselves and become reminded that what we perceive isn't always what's really going on. With the constant barrage of information available in today's 24/7 world, it's important to not get caught up in the day-to-day market volatility and news headlines. That daily hype doesn't always dovetail with what Wells Fargo Advisors top strategists are observing in the financial marketplace.
