Atheroma is like fatty patches or plaques that develop within the inside lining of arteries. (This is similar to water pipes that get furred up with scale.) Plaques of atheroma may gradually form over a number of years in one or more places in the body, commonly in arteries going to the heart, brain, legs and penis. In time, these can become bigger and cause enough narrowing of one or more of the arteries to cause symptoms and problems. cheap levitra online uk buy levitra online When there is angina or heart failure, the doctor may need to determine whether the heart has enough reserve to safely carry out the work necessary for sexual activity by performing cardiac treadmill stress testing. Mental heath (psychological) causes - Various mental health conditions may cause you to develop ED. For example: Stress. For example, due to a difficult work or home situation. Anxiety. Relationship difficulties. Depression. Drug viagra Sildenafil is used for the treatment of erectile dysfunction of either physical or psychological cause. It has been found to be effective in treating erectile dysfunction in men with coronary artery disease, diabetes mellitus, hypertension, depression, coronary artery bypass surgery, and men who are taking antidepressants and several classes of anti-hypertensives. Metabolism (breakdown) of sildenafil is slowed by aging, liver and kidney dysfunction, and concurrent use of certain medications (such as erythromycin -- an antibiotic, and protease inhibitors, for HIV). Slowed breakdown allows sildenafil to accumulate in the body and potentially may increase the risk of side effects. Therefore in men over 65, in men with substantial kidney and liver disease, and in men who also are taking protease inhibitors, the doctor will initiate sildenafil at a lower dose (25 mg) to avoid accumulation of sildenafil in the body. A protease inhibitor ritonavir (Norvir) is especially potent in increasing the accumulation of sildenafil, thus men who are taking Norvir should not take sildenafil doses higher than 25 mg and at a frequency of no greater than once in 48 hours. Discounts for quantity and shipping in a wide range of package propecia online Lifestyle and other advice - As mentioned above, ED is often a marker that heart disease or other cardiovascular diseases may soon develop. Therefore, you should review your lifestyle to see if any changes can be made to minimise the risk of developing these problems. For example, stop smoking if you are a smoker, take regular exercise, eat a healthy diet, etc. Also, your doctor may prescribe a statin drug to lower your blood cholesterol level if your risk of developing cardiovascular disease is high. Sildenafil has been found to be effective and safe in the treatment of erectile dysfunction in men with stable heart disease due to atherosclerosis of the coronary arteries, provided that they are not on any type of nitrates. The real concern is not as much the safety of sildenafil but the risk of sexual activity in triggering heart attacks or abnormal heart rhythms in patients with heart disease.

Going Gaga for Berenguer's Babies

Falling in love with the latest offerings from Dolls by Berenguer is, well, as easy as falling in love with a newborn baby. From collectible cuties to precious play dolls, there is something for everyone in this year’s collection of beautiful baby dolls. Charming poses and sweet expressions, combined with adorable accessories, make the company’s current creations simply irresistible.

“Each doll’s expression and theme combination is unique,” notes Salvador Berenguer, who creates each of the original sculpts for Dolls by Berenguer and JC Toys. “Many other doll companies design only a few faces and dress the dolls in different outfits to add range to the collection. Dolls by Berenguer, on the other hand, designs many faces and gives each doll its unique look without much, if any, repetition. Our 2008 line of collector and specialty play dolls displays more than 50 different doll sculpts!”

Collectors will enjoy sharing a hug with the 18-inch Beautiful Embrace from Berenguer’s Baby Moments collection.Two of Salvador’s newest Collector Edition designs make up the Baby Moments Collection, which features dolls that capture cute baby poses. The 18-inch all-vinyl dolls have sweet expressions and realistic looks that will captivate collectors. No one can resist a child’s hug and “Beautiful Embrace!” is just as irresistible. With her arms wide open, waiting for a cuddle, she holds a chain of hearts. She looks lovely in her delicate dress, matching sandals and dainty earrings. Another precious baby moment is celebrated with the curious expression and sweet pose of “Reaching for Love.” The adorable baby boy, with his chubby, outstretched arms, reaches for his favorite toy horse. Collectors will find it hard to stifle a smile when they see these sweet tots!

“It’s really great to sculpt the expressions of a baby or child,” says Salvador, who has been involved with dollmaking for about 50 years. “To me, they show the most truthful emotions. I get my inspiration from everyday life and children’s faces in the moment. Expressions can be very beautiful!”

Sal­vador and his wife live in the town of Onil, just outside of Alicante, Spain. “This is the town where I have always lived, and it’s a great feeling to know everyone. It’s like a big, extended family,” Salvador says, noting that his father ignited his in­terest in dollmaking. “I’ve always been surrounded by art and enjoyed it. The area where I live has always been very doll- and toy-oriented. So, I guess you can say it runs in my blood.”

Special Deliveries

The skilled sculptor brings out the innocence and beauty of children’s emotions in each doll he sculpts—no matter the size. Even the tiniest tots—including the company’s Mini Dolls line, featuring 9½-inch soft-bodied vinyl dolls—have detailed expressions and lovely outfits. The “Little Angels” are heaven-sent with their floral-wreath halos and silk outfits. And one look at “Mini First Sunday,” and you’ll know why some of the best things come in small packages! “Baby Olivia” and her twin brother, “Baby Bao,” are dressed in bold and traditional Chinese outfits and matching hats while a mini version of Berenguer’s “La Petite Isabelle” dons a soft pink onesie, matching booties and a cute headband with a bow. The four 20-inch cuties in Berenguer’s line of seasonal dolls are dressed to impress. The brunette “Fall Wonder” sports a cozy sweater over her pretty flowered dress while “Spring Flower” wears a dainty white dress with a blue and white pina­fore. Her strawberry-blond hair is topped with a woven straw hat. Sure to bring warmth to any collection, “Summer Belle” is absolutely stunning with her big eyes and long hair. A lovely floral dress and matching shoes make her truly irresistible. The aptly named “Winter Delight” is adorable in her brown satin overdress and white dress. Her honey blond hair is pulled back with a large brown bow to show off her big, brown eyes. Matching shoes and lacy socks keep her feet warm during the long winter months. The seasonal sensations may each represent a particular time of year, but collectors will likely want to display them year-round!

Added Appeal

Baby Lei takes her soft plush bunny with her wherever she goes. The 14-inch all-vinyl cutie’s name means “flower bud,” and she’ll surely make your heart bloom.Several of the Berenguer babies are paired with plush animals. The cuddly companions add to the adorability of the baby dolls. “Silly Monkey” and his sweet simian pal are always monkeying around, and “My Best Friend” and his playful puppy are inseparable. “Baby Isabella” and her cute kitty make the “purr-fect” pair, and “Little Nico” and his stuffed frog will hop right into collectors’ hearts. Holding a soft bunny, “Baby Lei” is simply precious in her summer dress trimmed with blue flowers. The two pink bows in her hair match her bunny’s ears.

The accessories add to the babies’ allure, but the darling dolls are endearing all on their own. “This year, we have added some design features in many of our lines that are quite innovative,” Salvador shares. “In the past we have always designed very straightforward baby dolls with very pro­portioned features. This year, we are celebrating each baby’s uniqueness by sculpting babies with slightly varied symmetries. Many of the new dolls have different positions and facial expressions that are instantly recognizable but at the same time not very common.”

Doll enthusiasts will find this same quality and originality in the Berenguer Boutique collection. “They are fun, but they still have that unique, realistic look to them,” Salvador says of company’s line of specialty play dolls. Baby “Lucas” and his stuffed frog are loads of fun to play with. You can’t help but smile back at him as he shows off his two front teeth and his adorable froggy hat. For realism and detail, collectors need look no further than “Lily.” Dressed in an adorable pink outfit, this baby doll will garner as much attention as the real thing. At just 9½-inches long, the “Mini La Newborn” dolls are all-vinyl and come in an assortment of ethnicities and outfits. The larger 14-inch “La Newborn” dolls are just as endearing. The boy and girl dolls are anatomically correct and come with their own diaper and hospital bracelet—just like a real newborn! Whichever specialty play doll catches your eye, you can be assured hours of fun.

As the team at Dolls by Berenguer looks to the coming year, they promise more adorable accessories and charming dolls. “We are currently in the beginning stages [of the 2009 collection], but we are excited to be working on some really beautiful and fun creations,” shares Richard Cerdá, president of Dolls by Berenguer. “Accessories are also going to be important for the line in 2009 and new doll kits are in the works as well.”

While enjoying the current lineup from Dolls by Berenguer, doll collectors wait with eager anticipation to see what darling creations the company will deliver in the coming year.

{besps_c}0|8.jpg|Even the Christmas trees in New York are fabulously dressed from head to toe! The Swarovski star that tops the Rockefeller Center tree is brilliant.|{/besps_c}I just learned about a new BJD debuting on December 6—it's a Ruby Red Galleria exclusive for DOLLS. The creation is so spot-on in its costuming and its attitude, I swear that one of the designers must have been tailing me last month.

When my friend Cam phoned me and invited me to the annual Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting, I should have said “no.” Any sane person would have, but sanity and an evening with Cam rarely go hand-in-hand. Instead, I agreed, and we headed out to Midtown Manhattan on one of the most crowded, most frantic nights of the year.

As we attempted to approach the skating rink where the enormous evergreen will reign supreme, I looked at Cam and burst out laughing.

“Isn’t this how ‘The Day of the Locust’ ends?” I shouted to him. (That film from the 1970s is among my and Cam’s favorite flicks. It stars Karen Black and Donald Sutherland, and it concludes with a horrible, free-for-all deadly crowd stampede.)

“Don’t be such a Grinch,” he called back. “Or should I say ‘Grinchette’!”

“I’m not sure there is a female Grinch,” I replied. “I know there was a Smurfette, the only blue gal around. But a Grinchette? I have to check my Seuss.”

And so this intellectual discourse continued as we fought our way through the jangling and jostling crowd—and, yes, the mass of people were LITERALLY jangling as they jostled. A huge number of them had on Santa hats with bells affixed or had bells attached to their lapels or collars. They were rude but they were rhythmic!

Since our trekking was so slow, and the other gawkers had gotten their much earlier to stake out their spots, Cam and I didn’t so much watch the tree lighting as watch the other folks’ reactions to all of the events.

A shrill shriek would emerge from the people way ahead of us.

“What is it?” I’d ask.

“Il Vole,” Cam would reply, referencing the teenage opera singers.

A cheer would erupt.

“Who is that?” I questioned.

“Chris Mann, from ‘The Voice.’” Another opera singer, who is marketed as a heartthrob.

Then just a smattering of applause.

“Mayor Bloomberg,” we both declared.

Since we were merely hearing the audio playback of the concert, we gazed at all the young men and women surrounding us.

“I think there is more wool here on Sixth Avenue than in all the sheep farms in Scotland,” Cam proclaimed.

Looking around, I had to agree.

Guys and girls were all decked out in the “official” apparel of the season: woolen flap hats, jauntily tied scarves, and boots. Girls had on legwarmers—“Hello, Flashdancers”—and fingerless gloves. (“What’s the point of that?” Cam groused. “Are we supposed to WANT our fingernails to turn blue?”) We had our very own Joan & Melissa Rivers Red Carpet fashion critique.

There’s a certain hip look that New Yorkers achieve—even when they are multilayering, they still come across as thin, chic, and hip. When I add scarves and sweaters and hats to my wardrobe, I look bundled up and ready to explode: envision the Michelin Tire Man, but not as perky.

When these twenty-somethings put on the extra bits of fabric, they look like they are taking a break en masse from shooting the Abercrombie & Fitch catalog. It really is quite amazing.

“I wish we could bottle their youth,” Cam lamented, looking at all the rosy-cheeked kids, teens, and college students who were scrambling about.

“Yep,” I agreed, “but can you imagine how much it would cost? And just how big would that bottle have to be! Better just to dream about it.”

And, wouldn’t you know it, just in time for Christmas . . . a doll that perfectly embodies that free-spirited New York City style has loped onto the scene.

The ball-jointed doll, which is a collaboration between DOLLS magazine and Ruby Red Galleria, is fittingly named “Ravena, Winter Chic.” Limited to 100 pieces, she’ll sell for 149.95. And, like all the other fashionable femmes who congregate in Manhattan, she weighs only 2 pounds, 6.9 ounces! The “Ravena” doll is bundled up and beautiful. Quite a feat, indeed!

Like her advertising copy says: A New York City native, the harsh NYC winters don’t stop “Ravena, Winter Chic,” a DOLLS dressed doll exclusive by Ruby Red Galleria, from exploring the city she loves. From uptown boutiques and coffee shops to downtown restaurants and theater, “Ravena, Winter Chic” bundles into her purple tights and faux-fur boots, corduroy short pants, pansy T-shirt, black motorcycle-style jacket and cozy knit hat to hit the streets in style. Even when the elements are unforgiving, “Ravena” survives and thrives in the city that never sleeps! The fully dressed 12-inch ball-jointed vinyl doll features removable wig and eyes, plus underwear and a sweet “love” tank top.

Ruby Red Galleria always has a way with its wardrobe, and “Ravena, Winter Chic” is no exception. I am sure Cam will be ordering one online. He’s probably circled December 6 on his calendar. After all, if he was willing to chew “instant youth” vitamins or spray on “adolescent forever” cologne, can you imagine how happy he’ll be to have a chic New Yorker to call his own?

“Exercising and eating well . . . who could be bothered,” Cam knowingly observes. “I’d rather play my way to younger days.”

And, yes, it can’t be denied. Cam has the healthiest inner-child in town!

The fourth Pullip and Dal Doll Lovers Event (PUDDLE) drew 60 doll lovers from 10 different states and Canada to the Elk Grove Village Holiday Inn in June. This year’s theme, cranes, was inspired by the sandhill cranes at the group's charity organization, the Willowbrook Wildlife Center. Six custom dolls and other items donated by sponsors like The Sleeping Elf and Denise's Dolls were raffled off at the event, raising $500 for the center.

The weekend started Friday night with dinner at Mitsuwa Japanese Mall in Arlington Heights, followed by a tea party at the hotel. PUDDLE officially kicked off at 9 a.m. Saturday, starting with an organized buy-sell-trade opportunity, and dozens of fans milled around trading and buying doll wigs, eye chips, bodies, clothing, and more.

5_costume_contest_newEvery attendee received a door prize, thanks to generous donations from many sponsors. Distribution of the door prizes was followed by a secret gift swap and lunch break. Afterwards, an informal Q&A-format customizing workshop answered questions for many fans new to the hobby, followed by a display of fully customized and modified dolls entered in the customization contest. Winners of an online photo/art contest which was held and judged before the event were announced along with the customization contest winners. The photo and art entries can be seen at www.puddlestyle.com/photoart.html.

Many fans continued the fun over dinner in the hotel restaurant and in the hotel lobby until the wee hours. Krista Farmer, who traveled from Toronto for the event, said “It was a crazy cool day.” Although the event officially ended Saturday night, 11 fans stayed for a behind-the-scenes tour of the Willowbrook Wildlife Center Sunday. — Jane Easterly
