Company Spits Out New Idea for Smokeless Tobacco Users

ChewOnThisCThe spittoon is as iconic and as much as the part of the fabric of U.S. history as the cowboys who used them. Then, as it is now, it was and still is, popular and necessary.

In fact, as state lawmakers continue to outlaw cigarettes in bars, restaurants, workplaces and government buildings, smokers are opting for smokeless tobacco, and the spittoon (or something like it) is once again becoming indispensable.

For The Man Who Has Everything: Eclectic Father’s Day Ideas

EclecticFathersDayCWhat is it about Father’s Day that can stump even the savviest gift giver? Mother’s Day seems almost seamless by comparison, the presents easy and unfailing: Chanel perfume, a bottle of Opus One wine, Godiva chocolate, dinner out, flowers or even a gift card for the local coffee shop will bring a smile. Dads, however, seem to get the short end of the stick more often than not.

“This is the time you can indulge Dad and get him those things he’s ogled, but hasn’t gone to buy on his own,” say Byon Penn, a manager at Jerry’s Home Improvement Center in Eugene, Ore. “But the ole, traditional necktie doesn’t quite cut it these days.”

“Paternal involvement seems to predict adult adjustment better than does maternal involvement,” Psychology Today reports.

Thankfully, loved ones don’t have to resort to the standard polka dot tie or another Home Depot gift card. Find a new way to recognize Dad (or Grandpa!) that’s as original and unique as the men who helped mold you. They deserve just as much.

Men: Heed Warning Signs of Heart Attack

It’s well known that more men have heart attacks than women, but many men ignore their cardiac health or don’t recognize warning signs. To further complicate matters, cardiologists can’t diagnose heart disease until the condition is advanced enough to cause high cholesterol or a blockage – problems that increase the risk of heart attack.

Most heart disease is coronary heart disease, in which arterial plaque build-up narrows blood vessels, lessening the amount of blood and oxygen that reaches the heart. While most men don’t have heart attacks until later in life – the average man gets his first heart attack at age 65 – plaque has been found in the hearts of 20-year-olds. That means that arterial plaque can build up for decades before men develop major problems.

Despite these natural fears, it is very important for men and their partners to take erectile dysfunction seriously and to get help.
