July Health- ACL Repairs Are Easy as ABC

For Christ Hospital Orthopedist 

dr-augustin-again.jpg

Jeffery Augustin, MD,

Ask a group of orthopedic surgeons what is the most common sports-related injury, and their responses will most likely be – injury to the ACL.  Fortunately, for both the professional athlete and the weekend warrior alike, tremendous strides have been made recently in treating such an injury, and Jeffery Augustin, MD, a board-certified and fellow-trained orthopedic surgeon at

Christ Hospital, is on the cutting edge.

            According to Dr. Augustin, “ACL or the anterior cruciate ligament connects the upper leg bone or femur with the lower leg bone or tibia.  An ACL injury occurs when the knee is straightened beyond its normal limits (hyperextended), twisted, or bent side to side. This may happen when changing direction rapidly, which commonly occurs in sports that require stop-and-go movements. An ACL injury may also occur after contact in a sport or in an accident.”

Mini-Vacations on a Budget

By Deborah Lambeth

A vacation doesn’t need to be expensive or elaborate to give you a much-needed break from the stress of your everyday routine. Sometimes the most relaxing getaways are right in your own backyardIt’s almost that time of year when families drag out the maps, travel brochures, and other things to plan their annual “summer vacation.” While some people look upon this as a chore, others find it to be a calming experience—envisioning a week away from work on some tropical island doing something you have never done before. Oh, that life could be so blissful! Of course, coming back down to earth from that momentary escape from reality, one does have to plan; there are reservations to be made, expenses to be calculated, asking for the vacation time away from work, etc., etc., etc. .

“The Roadhouse” Comes Alive in a “Lightning Films” Production
By Evelyn Bonilla

In the world of independent film, director’s as well as actors challenge themselves to bring to the screen “true to life” emotions. There are no sound stages, no cue cards and no sketched out sets; it’s all about “on your mark, get set, go!” Actors and actresses are free to delve into their craft and to express themselves without barriers and their directors are of the mind set to see how far they can go. Is this type of acting challenging? Yes! Is it exhilarating to most actors? Absolutely!

Independent films are taking over the film industry; many actors and actresses are clamoring at the chance to bring these “unpredictable, untraditional characters” within these films to life. Continue reading July-“The Roadhouse” Indy Film

Mid -Day Host WQXR

by Tom Dwyer

When Annie Begrowicz’s career as a radio host and announcer took off more than 20 years ago, she decided to change her hard to pronounce last name to something more radio-friendly. After a few failed combinations, she found a name with a nice ring to it: Annie Bergen, after Bergen Avenue, the street where she lived as a child in Jersey City.  Today, Annie Bergen still lives in Jersey City and she’s now the mid-day host on the most listened to classical radio station in New York City, WQXR, owned by the New York Times.  Every weekday from 10 am to 3 pm, Bergen is the host of “The Mid-Day Show” where she treats her listeners to a cornucopia of classical music. She also hosts the Saturday morning show, “People in the Arts”, where she interviews artists from every corner of the art world.

Before joining WQXR in 2004, Ms. Bergen was the Chief Arts and Entertainment Reporter for Bloomberg Radio, WBBR.   She has also worked at Bloomberg Television, as well as a number of other radio stations including WBGO–the great jazz station located in Newark — where she hosted her own show called “Annie in the Afternoon.”    Bergen has won many prestigious awards for her reporting, including a “Gracie” from American Women in Radio and Television and two awards from the New York State Broadcasters Association.

 What do Frank Sinatra, Meryl Streep, Yogi Berra, Bill Bradley, Thomas Edison, Toni Morrison and Bruce Springsteen all have in common?

and the General category.  The Historical category is open for deceased New Jerseyans whose contributions transcend any one particular category.  Clara Barton, Thomas Edison and Albert Einstein were picked in this category.   The Enterprise Category is open to scientists, business leaders, inventors, leaders in medicine, entrepreneurs and philanthropists.  Buzz Aldrin, Malcolm Forbes and Robert Wood Johnson were picked in this category.   The Arts & Entertainment Category includes musicians, singers, songwriters, actors & actresses, artists, dancers and those who work in the related fields. Frank Sinatra, Bruce Springsteen and Meryl Streep were inducted in this category.
