Joyce Rudolph DOWNTOWN -- Cushy seats and a working elevator await patrons attending the first production of A Noise Within's 10th season, back at the Masonic Temple structure on south Brand Boulevard. Previews for Thornton Wilder's "The Skin of Our Teeth" begin Sunday for the theater company that returned home more than two months ago after performing only one season at the Luckman Fine Arts Complex on the Cal State L.A. campus. The old church pew seats have been replaced by 144 modern cushioned chairs and the elevator works, making it easier to get to the stage on the third floor, Art Manke said.

You have an amazing feature that can glint, gleam, sparkle, twinkle, stare, cry and wink. Sometimes known as "the window to your soul", I'm talking about your eyes. Aging is relative-a sliding scale that affects us all differently. But, some may notice over time the look of your eyes has changed. Gravity has a way of pulling body parts towards Argentina. Since the eye lids or fatty pads above the eye are prone to this "southward movement," the look of your face is altered. Your eyes are distinct and recognizable so, when the upper lids fall, the face changes noticeably.

Part 4 Fashion trends constantly change and evolve. As I have mentioned, ?fashion mannequins,? those who choose all of the trends as their own styles, often lose themselves in attempting self-expressions. Know thyself, and express your uniqueness. Choose what is in fashion that works for your body proportions and personality: ?Full pleats in skirts/dresses: good for slim hips and thighs. ?Sleeveless dresses: slim, fair arms; mostly for women under 40 years of age. ?

Linda LaZar So, you think you've heard everything? Hold on to your hats, and wait till you hear this: There's a new business in Glendale that seems to have been beamed down from an episode of "Star Trek." It's called Slimmer Body and claims to guarantee a beauty technique that will reduce 6 to 30 inches from a person's hips, waists, thighs and tummies in only 60 minutes. The inch reduction is done by a process of body wrapping that was invented by Hollywood figure consultant Victoria Morton nearly 30 years ago. The Slimmer Body technician measures 18 key areas on the client's body and then wraps him or her like a mummy from head to toe with elastic bandages that have been soaked in a safe and cool, all-natural mineral solution.

With winter just a few weeks away, many people are starting to feel the itchy effects of dry skin, but for people with diabetes, dry skin is not simply a minor annoyance -- it may lead to more serious complications if not properly treated. Severe dry skin may result in deep and painful cracks in the skin's surface, especially in the feet. Approximately 60 percent of people with diabetes suffer from a complication called neuropathy, or nerve damage, and may not be able to feel those painful cracks on the soles of their feet.

Civility by Diana Olson Colors should never be lighter, brighter, darker, grayer, warmer, or cooler than you are. They should be supportive, not dominant. They should connect with you. Whites: Teeth colors are ivory white in most people. One with contrast coloring may have blue-white tones in their teeth. Never wear a white that is whiter than the white in your teeth. Your white should support, not dominate. Romantic colors: These are your romantic colors that are the most feminine or masculine colors.

Terri Roberts, Weekend GLENDALE -- A Noise Within couldn't have celebrated its return to Glendale's old Masonic Temple better than with Thornton Wilder's Pulitzer Prize-winning "The Skin of Our Teeth." Absurd in nature and buoyant in spirit, "Skin" follows the zany, 5,000-plus-year-old, never-say-die Antrobus family (derived from "anthropoid," Greek for "human being") as they weather all manner of environmental and biblical cataclysms. Everything from dinosaurs, woolly mammoths and the Ice Age, to the flood that necessitated Noah's ark, to the dismal, uncertain aftermath of World War II (Wilder wrote the play at the start of that terrible conflict)

Gary Moskowitz SOUTHEAST GLENDALE -- You could hear the words of Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech echoing throughout John Muir Elementary School's playground and the school's surrounding neighborhood Tuesday. More than 1,300 Muir students marched from their classrooms to the school's playground holding large banners with drawings of King, American flags and words like "unity," "kindness" and "respect." Students all wore yellow cards around their necks stating the school's peace pledge and stood quietly to listen as teacher John Cooper's sixth-grade students stood at a microphone and read aloud words once spoken by King.

The Glendale Galleria - a retail powerhouse whose 1970s-era all-brick façade has been criticized as being overtly drab - plans to undergo a major overhaul in the next two years, including a revamped entrance plaza featuring 11-foot-high letters jutting out of a pool. The project, approved by the City Council on Tuesday, will ditch the mega-mall's windowless, brick exterior, which was typical of shopping malls built in the 1970s, but has become increasingly dated with the rise of the glitzy Americana at Brand and a more mixed-use, pedestrian-oriented downtown.

A La Crescenta Elementary School student who has suffered a lifetime of enigmatic health problems has finally started to get some answers following extensive testing at a federal research center. Reece LoCicero, 5, has been diagnosed with cutaneous mastocytosis, a reactive skin disease that typically improves as a patient ages, said Gretchen Golas, a pediatric nurse practitioner at the Undiagnosed Diseases Program at the National Institutes of Health in Maryland. That the disease appears to be confined to his skin, and not throughout his body, should bring some hope, she added.

Editor's Note: Numerous instances of plagiarism have been discovered in Dan Kimber's “Education Matters” column, which ran in the News- Press from September 2003 to September 2011. In those columns where plagiarism has been found, a For the Record specifying the details will be appended to the piece. There is a memorable character from the movie "Teachers," Mr. Ditto, who reminds me of a few teachers I had in school and, I must add, a few I have known over the years as colleagues.

The beauty shop?s staff allegedly told her to put ice on the burns, but it had an adverse effect and made her injuries worse.

Taemi Lopez is a picture of tranquillity these days, instilled with a new sense of hope that her burned skin will continue to replenish itself after third-degree burns scalded the right side of her face. Two years ago, however, Lopez’s situation was vastly different as the Glendale resident contemplated suicide after a disastrous cooking incident left her body badly burned. On the afternoon of Dec. 25, 2006, Lopez was preparing for a holiday party by cooking dumplings seeped in a pan of scalding hot oil. She left the kitchen to snap a photo with her new husband, Eddie Lopez, in front of the couple’s first shared Christmas tree.

Part 2   Picking up where we left off — weight does not determine your size, shape or health. Though it may be a contributing factor, a more accurate gauge of health and wellness is how you feel. Sometimes, heavier is better. Here are a few things that can add pounds and may enhance your health at the same time.  Dense bones weigh more and are more resistant to injury and osteoporosis.  Hydration keeps your many systems running — body fluids circulate throughout your body: in the colon, intestines, joints and stomach.
