Antiques or old furniture make a home more interesting and lift if from the hum-drum existence of a place to eat and sleep. Beautiful and interesting furniture and accessories create a center of interest on which the eye can dwell contemplatively, arousing memories and associations. A home should be interesting. The furnishings should express one’s own personality and tastes and not meekly follow the current fashions. Antiques and old furniture give a feeling of permanence and a link to the past. According to a U.S. Customs ruling in 1967, an antique is an item that is 100 years old or older. Until then, it had to be made prior to 1830. It may be further defined as having artistic merit, aesthetic appeal and not be a utilitarian object. Some definitions add that mechanically produced items that were made in large numbers will never be an antique. Furniture from different periods mix to create an interesting interior. The following are some general principles to guide you in combining different periods and styles of accessories and furniture successfully.

In March 2004, U.S. Surgeon General Richard Carmona called attention to a health problem in the United States that, until recently, has been overlooked: childhood obesity. Carmona said that the “astounding” 15% child obesity rate constitutes an “epidemic.” Since the early 1980s, that rate has “doubled in children and tripled in adolescents.” Now more than nine million children are classified as obese.1 While the traditional response to a medical epidemic is to hunt for a vaccine or a cure-all pill, childhood obesity has proven more elusive. The lack of success of recent initiatives suggests that medication might not be the answer for the escalating problem. In recent years, policymakers and medical experts have expressed alarm about the growing problem of childhood obesity in the United States. While most agree that the issue deserves attention, consensus dissolves around how to respond to the problem. This literature review examines one approach to treating childhood obesity: medication. The paper compares the effectiveness for adolescents of the only two drugs approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for longterm treatment of obesity, sibutramine and orlistat. This examination of pharmacological treatments for obesity points out the limitations of medication and suggests the need for a comprehensive solution that combines medical, social, behavioral, and political approaches to this complex problem.
