United States Deputy Secretary of Labor Chris Lu spent just as much time taking pictures of the 3-D printers and scanners as he did asking questions about them.
Fresh off the heels of President Obama’s proposal to make the first two years of community college free for prospective students, the nation’s second-highest ranking labor official toured Queensborough Community College’s new 3-D printing lab and virtual hospital with Rep. Grace Meng (D-Flushing) last Friday, both appearing fascinated with the technology.
(BPT) - You probably don’t need a poll to know that Americans don’t like body hair, but there are plenty that confirm exactly that. In fact, multiple polls indicate that the majority of American women shave their legs and underarms, and many men engage in hair removal on at least some part of their bodies (other than the face).
(BPT) - The glittering icicles, crisp white snow and a simple unspoken elegance – the wonder of winter has suited weddings well for many years. Today, Disney’s Frozen has renewed interest in winter weddings, with more couples choosing a sophisticated theme that is inspired by the style and storyline of the popular film.

A patient recently came into the office for a consultation on what she could do to make herself look younger and feel better about herself. She was in her early 50s but felt like she looked a decade older. “What happened to me? How did I get this way? Did I wait too long to come in?”
(BPT) - When it comes to renovating spaces in your home, the master bath should be top of mind. Leading master bath trends for 2015 go beyond functionality to incorporate features that complement the design aesthetic and provide a touch of luxury for lasting results.
There’s a reason they say hard work, laser-like determination and people skills can lead to great success in business: because it’s true. Just ask Thomas Chen.
Chen came to the United States from Taiwan in 1982, when he was 27, with just a few dollars in his pocket and no English skills whatsoever. Settling in Elmhurst, he was alone for his first year here, having left his wife and their young son back home. His first job was ironing shirts and pants in a garment factory in Manhattan’s Chinatown.
(NAPSI)—Anyone who thinks of a printer’s toner cartridge as a mere vessel might be surprised to learn that it’s actually a critical component of the device itself.
Police arrested a Jamaica Hills man on Sept. 24 for allegedly shining a high-powered laser beam into an NYPD helicopter flying over the area looking for a suspect in an assault case.
“I put the helicopter in hover and all of a sudden I see, out of the corner of my eye, a bright green light that illuminated the cockpit,” said Officer Tarek Otero, the pilot.
There are three aesthetic layers of the face. These layers include the skin, the subcutaneous tissue, i.e. the fatty layer, and the deep fascia including the muscle. Most aesthetic surgery is focused on these three main layers.
Our family’s traditional August soaking detachment from all responsibilities was slothing happily along when, on Aug. 19, I received a Facebook message wishing me a Happy Hoo Hah Day. That’s how I knew it was time to start thinking about back-to-school.
When my siblings and I were teens, my brother invented Hoo Hah Day as a way to indulge while still sheltered by several weeks from summer’s last call on Labor Day. We observed by concocting a favorite beverage and running wild in the yard at night. Now as the mother of a 9-year-old, my first priority for back-to-school season is still to happily top off summer before we yield to practical preparations.
(Family Features) A woman's face and hands can be tell-tale signs of years creeping by, but there is another area of the body that is often overlooked and can be one of the best indicators of a woman's true age - her décolletage.
(Family Features) If you’re looking for a cost-effective way to dress up a room in your home, crown molding is a simple way to add elegance and class with minimal investment.
A group of students and staffers from the Phyllis L. Susser School in Fresh Meadows recently stopped by the Queens Chronicle offices for a brief education in the community newspaper business and a tour. Taking part were Pamela Smith, left, Marisol Alcantara, Isaac Garcia, David DeJong, Madyson Harris, Alejandro Suarez and A.J. Mejia.
They learned how the Chronicle focuses like a laser on hyperlocal news in its eight regional editions, and how advertising from local businesses supports all the paper does.

A project to make three-dimensional images of the New York State Pavilion for posterity is underway this week at Flushing Meadows Park.
Lori Walters, a post-World War II historian at the University of Central Florida, who has emotional ties to the fairgrounds, says a 3-D laser scanner will provide an exact representation of the 50-year-old pavilion in case of a disaster or just to show future generations what it looks like in 2014.
The sun is shining and school has been dismissed for nearly an hour, but in this second-floor classroom at JHS 157 in Rego Park, about a dozen students studiously sit in front of computers.
These preteens are not serving detention. They want to be here. They are part of a nationwide program that allows students to learn the ins and out of computer technology in an effort to make them more tech-savvy earlier.
