The Lancer Method Starter Kit

I don't buy-in to gimmicky products, but I admit that this tool intrigues me. I like that the Microcurrent Power Boost Device helps skincare reach it's target, the areas within the skin where it's most needed. What's the point of my dedicated twice daily skincare routine if the products aren't penetrating my skin as effectively as they could?

Dr. Lancer claims that with daily use, results will be visible within two weeks. The big deterrent for me is the hefty $225 price tag. I wish there was a way to try it for two weeks and then pay for it!

Would you try the Lancer Dermatology Microcurrent Power Boost Device or is it a high-priced gimmick?

    • Fake Florida doctor who ‘enhanced’ buttocks with cement, caulking gets 10 years for manslaughter

      From a Florida prison in November 2011, Shatarka Nuby penned a letter to the state’s health department about her cosmetically enhanced buttocks. Her rear end had hardened and turned black, she wrote. Side effects from the years-old injections left the mother of three feeling sick. And she claimed her surgeon — Oneal Ron Morris — was the same faux cosmetic doctor that police had arrested and accused of pumping a near-lethal formula of cement, mineral oil, bathroom caulking and Fix-a-Flat tire sealant into other women’s bodies. Her patients called her “Duchess.” Officials began investigating and interviewed Nuby. But four months later, she was dead. The official cause of death was respiratory failure

    • Reheating Rice Can Give You Food Poisoning If You Don't Do This

      Although reheating takeout when you're too busy to cook is one of life's great pleasures, leftover rice can actually be scarily bad for you, the NHS say. Because if you didn't already know, you can get a pretty grim case of food poisoning from eating reheated rice; it's not the reheating that causes the problem, but instead the way the rice has been stored after being cooked the first time. So uncooked rice often contains spores (cells capable of reproducing quickly) of Bacillus cereus — a bacteria strand that can cause food poisoning — that can survive when rice is cooked. And if the rice is left standing at room temperature after it's been boiled, the spores can grow into bacteria, which will

    • ‘Toxic tush’ doctor sentenced to 10 years in prison

      A transgender woman, who served more than a year in prison for injecting toxic materials — including Fix-a-Flat and superglue— into the rear-ends of several women in Miami-Dade, will once again be behind bars. Oneal Ron Morris, 36, was sentenced to 10 years in prison, followed by five years probation, a Broward judge decided, Miami Herald news partner CBS4 reported. Monday’s sentencing comes a month after Morris pleaded no contest to manslaughter and practicing medicine without a license, according to the Sun Sentinel. Among those who attended the hearing: Juanita Nuby, whose 31-year-old niece Shatarka Nuby died during one of Morris’s procedures. “There’s no closure,” she said at the hearing,

    • NASA just captured a photo of Jupiter that you won’t believe is real

      NASA has managed to capture some pretty stunning photos of all the cool stuff they've spotted over the years, and rarely does it fail to amaze. There's images of planet surfaces, the rings of Saturn, and even black holes flying through space totally unchecked . Rarely, however, does a photo look so unreal that at first glance you'd be likely to mistake it for a work of Earthling art. A new photo captured by NASA's Juno spacecraft falls into that category, and oh what a sight it is. The image, originally taken by Juno's "JunoCam" camera, was taken in early February and shows Jupiter's ever-swirling mass of storm clouds from an altitude of roughly 9,000 miles. The storms which continually rock the planet take on a milky appearance when captured up close, and a citizen scientist named Roman Tkachenko took the liberty of enhancing the photo's colors to bring out even more of the defining lines and edges. The Juno craft, packed with all kinds of fancy monitoring equipment, made its fifth flyby of the planet on Monday, which is also the fourth "science orbit," which is the name they give the flybys when all the instruments on board are up and running. The craft's next flyby won't happen until late May 2017, so it's a rare and exciting event when one of these close passes goes by without a hitch. The craft's data is currently being sent to Earth where researchers will continue to mine it for precious information about our solar system's most intimidating planet.

    • Three burglars entered an Oklahoma home. The owner’s son opened fire with an AR-15, deputies say.

      Gunfire rang out Monday afternoon in a home in Broken Arrow, an Oklahoma city 15 miles southeast of Tulsa. Three intruders were killed after the son of the homeowner fired a semiautomatic rifle in what local law enforcement officers later described as an act of self-defense, though their investigation remains open. The intruders — a 16-year-old, a 17-year-old and a man thought to be 18 or 19 — had smashed open the back door of the house, the Wagoner County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement posted to Facebook. Their plan was burglary, authorities said. They wore gloves, masks and all-black clothes, Wagoner County Deputy Nick Mahoney told Tulsa World. Two of the teenagers were armed, one with
