Web site has live donors for those who need organs

When Kathy Lee found out her kidneys were failing, she turned to her doctor for help and her family and friends for support.

But the medicine Lee's doctor prescribed to halt the deterioration of her kidney function didn't work. And while some of her friends and family were willing to supply a kidney, they weren't suitable donors.

Q: I can't seem to get any color into our home. Part of the problem is that my husband thinks white is the only "color" for every room. Even the baths are all white tile. I fixed that by using some bright towels and a colorful shower curtain, but what do I do in the living room, for instance, where the walls are white and the furniture and floors are brown?

A: Think small. Little things really do mean a lot in decorating. Just as easily as you jazzed up that sterile bath with bright fabrics, you can breathe color into your white and brown living room, using well-chosen accessories.

Kia banks on numerous features, lower price to sell Sedona

Kia is hoping that price and a long list of features are enough to sell its redesigned 2006 Sedona minivan. That could be a tall order, however, given that the traditional minivan might be losing some of its luster as an economical people mover. Trying to take a bigger slice of the minivan pie might not be as easy as just offering a competent vehicle, which the new Sedona certainly is.

Nothing's scarier than teenage wizards eyeing each other

And so our much-beloved wizardry franchise takes a long-dreaded but still unsettling turn for the darker side in its fourth incarnation, "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" (Warner, 4 stars). Yes, Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) and his comrades become teenagers.

Well, sure, the rise of the Dark Arts and He Who Must Not Be Named (Ralph Fiennes) provide for great thrills, drama and good fun. But that's nothing compared to watching a bunch of awkward young wizards all hit puberty at the same time. The drama is enough to kill you, cinematically speaking.

The puzzle of Alzheimer's

For 72-year-old Mary Lynch, it's a no-brainer.

Although there's no cure for Alzheimer's disease, some studies theorize that by keeping the body and mind healthy and active, we can delay the disease or possibly prevent it.

That's good enough for this former Air Force nurse. Although Lynch is retired, she's not idle. If she's not walking around the San Diego Zoo or playing golf, she's volunteering at the Alzheimer's Association, reading one of her favorite historical novels, or completing crossword puzzles.

"When it comes to the brain, if you don't use it, you're going to lose it," says the San Diego resident, who is a diabetic (one of the risk factors for Alzheimer's) and has a family history of the disease.

New cancer treatment much more precise

Lying on his back on a hard table, Michael Robinson holds himself perfectly still, closes his eyes, quietly sings gospel songs to himself and seeks guidance from above.

During the next 10 to 15 minutes, a machine that looks like an oversized hair dryer from a beauty shop swivels around his head, buzzing and shooting high-energy X-rays into his mouth.

March - Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month


Board of Health Urges Early Cancer Detection

March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. Paramus Health Officer, John Hopper, urges you to schedule an annual visit with your doctor. Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer found in our country and responsible for more than 50,000 deaths each year, yet it is also one of the most curable forms of the disease. Caught early and with proper treatment, most patients return to normal lives.

Doctors debate the current medical methods of detecting prostate cancer

Harry Truman was famously frustrated by economic advisers who could never offer an observation without adding, "but on the other hand." The president joked that what he needed was a one-armed economist.

It's kind of that way when it comes to screening for prostate cancer.

The problem rests with the PSA test. An elevated reading may indicate a tumor, but on the other hand...

"It's only one test, only one view, and you cannot really rely on that alone," said Dr. Israel Barken, a urologist and leader of the San Diego Prostate Cancer Support Group.

Teen fashion gets some serious style

Who can keep up with teen fashionistas who rock from one trend to another as fast as you can sing Rihanna's latest, "S.O.S. (Rescue Me)"?

Dreaming up clothes for these contemporary young people seems to come easy for designer Michele Bohbot, who grew up in Fez, Morocco, and studied in Paris at the Sorbonne.

While in Paris, Bohbot opened several retail stores, and in 1989 launched her line of inspired by Parisian street fashion called Bisou Bisou (French slang meaning "a little kiss"). This February, Bohbot, who now calls Los Angeles home, is launching a junior line, Miss Bisou at J.C. Penney.

Exclusively Bugatti: Only select few buyers qualify for million-dollar Veyron

BUGATTI VEYRON 16.4
The first time Pierre-Henri Raphanel settled into the driver's seat of the Bugatti Veyron 16.4, it was to be for a brief test with an engineer. He stayed for seven hours.

"I did not want to get out," says Raphanel, who has some experience with endurance and speed.

Not only has he put 9,000 miles on one Veyron - there are just two of the French sports cars in the United States - Raphanel raced at Le Mans and Grand Prix, then raced sports cars in Europe and Japan.

How do you contain an evolving avian flu?

No one can yet say whether 2006 will be the year of the flu pandemic, whether a particularly virulent strain will mutate sufficiently to easily infect and kill tens of thousands of people, possibly millions.

But there is cause for concern. Recent outbreaks of a strain of avian flu called H5N1 in Asia suggest the virus may have already made the biological leap from bird host to human victim. In China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Thailand and Turkey, at least 149 human cases of H5N1 infection have been reported, with 80 deaths, according to the World Health Organization.

Bird versions of H5N1 have spread beyond Asia, perhaps transported by wild migratory birds, to portions of eastern Europe, Russia, Kuwait and Canada. More human cases seem inevitable. President Bush has launched a $7.1 billion plan to prepare for a global flu epidemic.

Big-time redesign: DTS assumes Caddy's flagship role from old standby DeVille

Critics might say the Cadillac DTS is the same old hay being pitched with a new pitchfork. Others will see it as an ideal makeover for a flagship Caddy.

The DTS is the big sedan with a new skin and new interior, top-line safety features and a hunk of an engine, the Northstar V-8.

But before I continue, a moment, please, to honor the loss of a great nameplate: DeVille.

Down under still the place for play space

Q: Everyone seems to be putting on great room additions. We have an old house on a small lot with no room to expand - except down or up.

My husband believes that basement "rec rooms" are a thing of the past, that no one goes "underground for fun," as he puts it, these days. That leaves the attic as a possible family room, but it's three flights up and has tiny windows. What's your advice: shall we rehab the attic, the basement, or just move?

'Shoes' the right fit for almost anyone

I am pleased to report that studio efforts to halt the bootlegging of movies are finally succeeding. I have in my hands a copy of the sometimes charming chick-flick comedy "In Her Shoes" (2 1/2 stars for women, 1 star for men) that cannot be copied.

I had my doubts about its security. (Doubts about security are a very good thing to have these days.) The DVD arrived without the usual skin-tight cellophane wrap and three adhesive security strips along the edges - standard anti-consumer wrapping on the most basic DVD in a store.

A sneak peek at spring fashion must-haves

With cold weather still wrapped around most of us, it's nice to cuddle up in front of the fire in our flannel PJs and dream of breezy white dresses, linen jackets, patent leather sandals and huge straw hats - perhaps all lined up on the beach runways of our winter-weary minds, sipping icy drinks and basking in the sun.

Not falling for all this tropical daydreaming just yet?

Well, fashion designers have always had to fast-forward the seasons and look ahead to warm days when it was cold and cool days when it was sweltering to put together their next collections. Now, as they are readying their fall '06 collections for the runways, here's what a few of them predicted will be must-haves for the season right around the corner, in spring '06:

Cayman S: Pure sports car, pure fun

The hottest new Porsche isn't the most expensive in the lineup, and it's likely to extend an olive branch to diehard 911 Carrera owners.

Essentially, the Cayman S coupe is a third sports car for the brand, but it's built from the Boxster roadster.

For price and performance, Cayman fits just below the high and mighty 911 Carrera and just above the playful and forgiving Boxster S.

Use Flaxseed to Boost Nutrition and Health


If you're interested in improving the quality of your diet, adding small amounts of flaxseed to your favorite foods is a quick and tasty way to accomplish your goal.

The flax plant is the source of fiber from which linen is woven, and it also yields edible seeds and oil. Flax has been part of the human diet for thousands of years, and for just as long, it has been valued for its health-promoting properties.
