Love to spare

Maybe it’s Valentine’s Day. Maybe it’s the 200th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s birth. Whatever the case, it seems that there’s plenty of love to spare this week in the city that loves you back.

No one should be feeling the love more than Mayor Michael Nutter who, despite angering nearly every activist in the city when he directed the Free Library system to shutter 11 branches, learned that he is still seen favorably by the city that elected him last year.

Commentary: Matters of the heart

When it comes to matters of the heart, we know that men and women are different. These differences hold true when it comes to heart health, as well. Knowing how to recognize the early symptoms of a possible heart attack can help men and women — and their doctors — to prevent it, or intervene in time to minimize the damaging effects on the heart.

Good heart health is a combination of diet, exercise and knowing your risk factors for heart disease, as well as recognizing the signs of a heart attack. A heart attack rarely happens without warning — it’s up to us to identify the signals and act in time. In honor of American Heart Month and Valentine’s Day, do your heart a favor: learn the facts about how to keep your and your loved one’s heart healthy and strong.
