It's no surprise that "The Duchess
," a film about an English royal beauty famous for her trendsetting style, is a visual treat. It features lavish costumes, opulent interiors and lovely views of pastures and 18th-century mansions.
But "The Duchess" is more than eye candy. With soap-opera sensibility and contemporary flair, the film — based on Amanda Foreman's biography, "Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire" — delves into inequality and abuse of power in personal and universal ways. The political discussions are timely and familiar to the modern ear.

Pain is more than a symptom of osteoarthritis; it's a damaging part of the disease itself, says a new study.
Researchers at the University of Rochester Medical Center say they've discovered that pain signals originating in arthritic joints, and the biochemical processing of those signals as they travel to the spinal cord and brain, appear to worsen and expand the disease.

Q: My husband and I looked at our new house on a weekend; we bought it on a Saturday and moved in on a weekend. Imagine our surprise on our first Monday morning in the house when the street that had always seemed so quiet turned out to be a major traffic lane — everyone was going to the nearby train station before 7 a.m. It's so noisy in the mornings that we are thinking of moving out of the master suite on the front of the house into a back bedroom.
What else can we do?
