Perinatal Mood Disorders: Help is Out There for Women in Bergen County


Resources Include 24-Hour Statewide Help Line and Informational Web Site

Most new mothers – anywhere from 60 to 80 percent – experience at least a brief episode of the "baby blues" – feelings of sadness, anxiety, loneliness, or moodiness – within the first few days of giving birth. After a couple of weeks these symptoms typically disappear. However, when symptoms persist or deepen in intensity, they may be a sign of postpartum depression or another one of several perinatal mood disorders (PMD). The important thing is to understand the difference and to get help when it is needed.

Spring Fashion Cleaning



It's that time of year -- spring ahead and get a fresh start. Start by cleaning out your closet! It's a tough job, but somebody's got to do it, right?

"Cleaning out your closet is always tough, because our clothes hold memories and ignite feelings and emotions," says Andy Paige, fashion expert and author of "Style on a Shoestring" (McGraw Hill, $16.95). "We all remember the dress we wore for a special date with our honey or the business suit that got us our first real job or the jeans that made us feel like a rock star. Letting go of garments that we don't wear anymore but still have fondness for can often be bittersweet."

A Re-election Jobs Report?


Did the big March jobs report put President Obama back on the road to re-election? If so, he can thank the GOP, whose tax cuts saved him from himself. 

You could hear cheering all the way from the West Wing when the Labor Department showed a 216,000 gain in non-farm payrolls, the biggest number in quite some time. Plus, the unemployment rate continued its decline to 8.8 percent. Not so long ago it was nearly 10 percent.
Corporate payrolls have now increased by 478,000 for the first three months of the year.

Freecycling to Keep Usable Things out of the Waste Stream



Freecycling
Each one of us produces 1.2 tons of garbage per year, which is mainly bagged household trash. What's not included in that figure are all the perfectly usable goods that get thrown out each year, such as old furniture, clothes, books, obsolete technology and working appliances.

Many of these items are yard-sale fodder, or can be found parked by the curb with a "free" sign attached. If you can't find what you need through curb-shopping, or the classifieds in this paper, try websites like Craigslist and Freecycle.

Project Gunrunner: Obama's Stimulus-Funded Border Nightmare



Michelle Malkin
Buried in Barack Obama's failed trillion-dollar stimulus program was a $10 million bloody border racket that has now cost American lives. This goes far beyond the usual waste, fraud and abuse underwritten by progressive profligacy. It's bloodstained government malfeasance overseen by anti-gun ideologues -- and now anti-gun ideologue Attorney General Eric Holder will "investigate."

Ferraro Was Brave When No One Was Watching, Too



Connie Schultz
When we measure the impact of a hero, it helps to consider the difference between worship and admiration.  Worship promotes an illusion of perfection in one person and relies on a belief in our inherent inferiority to keep the myth alive.  Admiration, on the other hand, closes the distance. A person admits to overcoming everyday stumbles and major obstacles of ordinary life, and we're inspired to find our own courage.

Well, why not? we think. Let's give it a go.
