WEEKLY RESTAURANT CRITIQUE
Week Of: December 30th
Uncle E's Wings & Things
* * * * *
Uncle E's Wings and Things is one of Baton Rouge's best burger dives offering a unique menu packaged in a cozy lunch box location. After scanning the very diverse menu, "The Apostle" Burger was the choice. Wow!!!! This burger was massive!. With three homemade juicy ground beef patties, hot sausage links,bacon, and cheese, I immediately new this was not your average burger. From the first bite to the last I was totally emerged in comfort food paradise. While each element held it's own, the marriage of flavors proved to be a spectacular experience bundled into one sandwich. The staff was friendly, but the wait was a bit lengthy. However the reward was a fantastic meal at a fantastic restaurant. I will be back!!!!!

The following risk factors may increase the risk of ovarian cancer: Part I
Family history of ovarian cancer
A woman whose mother or sister had ovarian cancer has an increased risk of ovarian cancer. A woman with two or more relatives with ovarian cancer also has an increased risk of ovarian cancer.
The risk of ovarian cancer is increased in women who have inherited certain changes in the following genes:
- Genes that are linked to hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC; Lynch syndrome).
Hormone replacement therapy
The use of estrogen -only hormone replacement therapy (HRT) after menopause increases the risk of ovarian cancer. The longer estrogen replacement therapy is used, the greater the risk may be. It is not clear whether the risk of ovarian cancer is increased with the use of HRT that has both estrogen andprogestin.
The use of fertility drugs may be linked to an increased risk of ovarian cancer.
The use of talc may increase the risk of ovarian cancer. Talcum powder dusted on the perineum (the area between the vagina and the anus) may reach the ovaries by entering the vagina.
Having too much body fat, especially during the teenage years, is linked to an increased risk of ovarian cancer. Being obese is linked to an increased risk.
Lump Medical Bills
There are thresholds for which medical bills become deductible if they total a certain percentage of your gross income (10 percent for most people is standard; however, it varies depending on circumstances). If you can lump your medical bills into this year or the next, you may become eligible for the effective tax deduction. This could involve loading up on prescriptions, getting new eyewear, scheduling an extra checkup or doctor's visit, and prepaying plans.
Taxable income includes money you receive, such as wages and tips. It can also include noncash income from property or services. For example, both parties in a barter exchange must include the fair market value of goods or services received as income on their tax return. Some types of income are not taxable except under certain conditions, including:
- Life insurance proceeds paid to you are usually not taxable. But if you redeem a life insurance policy for cash, any amount that is more than the cost of the policy is taxable.
- Income from a qualified scholarship is normally not taxable. This means that amounts you use for certain costs, such as tuition and required books, are not taxable. However, amounts you use for room and board are taxable.
- If you got a state or local income tax refund, the amount may be taxable. You should have received a 2013 Form 1099-G from the agency that made the payment to you. If you didn’t get it by mail, the agency may have provided the form electronically. Contact them to find out how to get the form. Report any taxable refund you got even if you did not receive Form 1099-G.
