Botox During A Pregnancy? Or While Nursing A Baby?

Did you know that the only group of people that are strongly advised against using any kind of Botox injection, are pregnant women and lactating mothers?

The relation between Botox during a pregnancy has not been explicitly studied and researched. So there is no data on whether/how using Botox to treat wrinkles in your skin may cause harm to your unborn child. Still doctors and medical practitioners are unanimous in their stance that pregnant mother’s and mom’s that are breast-feeding should not get any Botox injections. Another reason that Botox during pregnancy is not needed; your skin automatically becomes smoother during this period removing the reason for using Botox to begin with.

John Hancock Paid A Lot To Eat Fresh Fish

The most flamboyant signature on the Declaration of Independence belonged to John Hancock, and that seems only fitting. The wealth he acquired by inheriting and growing his uncle’s mercantile firm enabled Hancock to live and eat with a lot of style.

To acquire one of the first salmon of the season, he paid a guinea—an amount equal to a full week’s wage for most skilled English craftsmen.

Hancock was known for the elaborate codfish dinners that he hosted. He so loved the cod found in Massachusetts Bay that even after advancing British troops forced him to flee Boston, Hancock paid to have codfish from the bay shipped to his temporary homes in Philadelphia and Baltimore.

When a highway mileage sign says “New York City 34 miles ahead”—is that to the border, to the first exit within the city, or to the middle of the city?

The answer: none of those things, or at least not necessarily. The Federal Highway Administration has given the “control cities” listed on these mileage signs a “center point.” The criteria for a center point: whatever the local authorities want it to be. It could literally be anything, so long as the FHA approves it as a “well-defined central area.” That could be a downtown, a central business district, or city hall, for example. Mileage signs into Baltimore denote how far away City Hall is. In New York City, the distance measures to the busy Columbus Circle area in Manhattan.
