Deb Grant is a force in organized dental hygiene. She was state president when the teachers' union took dental hygiene under its wing and it changed the course of practice in IL. By joining forces, she proved that everything is about money. The Teachers' Union had money and influence and getting together she showed that dental hygienists are not greedy, they just want to work. And if the doctor takes a vacation they can still see patients.
Today Deb is many things, including a NERB examiner. Listen in as we reveal the ins and outs of the examination process that dental hygiene students and dental students must go through to receive their licence to practice.
TONIGHT- Medium & Channeler SOLANA channels John Lennon in the afterlife. Join us for this celebration and Q&A of one of the most beloved men in our history, Mr. John Lennon.
The killing, on Dec. 8, 1980, marked a major social shift
John Lennon’s death 34 years ago today triggered the same shock and outpouring of grief as the assassinations of Martin Luther King, Jr. and John F. Kennedy. So wrote critic Jay Cocks for his 1980 TIME cover story about the legacy of the late Beatle and his death by the hands of Mark David Chapman. The touching tribute — comments from Bruce Springsteen that are included in the piece may bring tears to your eyes — featured one memorable quote from Lennon’s wife, Yoko Ono: “This is not the end of an era,” she said in the days after he was killed. “The ’80s are still going to be a beautiful time, and John believed it.”
But in his piece, Cocks makes the case for why Ono’s words were more wishful thinking than a truthful declaration.
The band had broken up a decade before, but Lennon’s death signaled a shift more serious than the Beatles’ dissolution ever did. After all, the music of the Beatles would be around indefinitely, whether or not the band continued to record together.
When Lennon died at age 40, however, everyone who had grown up with the Beatles was approaching middle age too. In addition to their sadness about Lennon’s death, they could not ignore their own mortality. “For everyone who cherished the sustaining myth of the Beatles,” Cocks wrote, “the murder was something else. It was an assassination, a ritual slaying of something that could hardly be named. Hope, perhaps; or idealism. Or time. Not only lost, but suddenly dislocated, fractured.”
