The Best Photos and Videos from the Great 2010 Valentines Day Pillow Fight

Monday, February 15th, 2010

Can you make sense of this scene at San Francisco’s Justin Herman Plaza near the Embarcadero Ferry Building? (Perhaps a black-and-white, slo-mo Raging Bull-style video or this official 1080p will help.)

It was the Yelp-rated Great Valentine’s Day Pillow Fight of February 14th, 2010! This joint went down yesterday despite a threatened crackdown from San Francisco’s Park Rangers and an ominous warning from San Francisco Director of Public Health Mitchell Katz - he fretted about the risk of corneal abrasions, penetrating injuries, and even orbital fractures.” Captain Bringdown, M.D. documented 17 injuries from last year that were serious enough to require medical attention at emergency rooms. Hope 2010 was safer.

Dr. David W. Kim Announces the Jobseekers Facelift Giveaway Contest

SAN FRANCISCO, May 12 /PRNewswire/ — Sympathetic to the older job applicant, Dr. David W. Kim has established a Jobseekers Facelift Giveaway Contest. As millions compete for a limited number of jobs, older applicants (those over 40) see facial surgery and non-invasive treatments as a way to stay competitive with younger applicants. “Of course, one’s accomplishments should set one apart, but in our culture a youthful appearance is highly valued,” begins Dr. David W. Kim, former Chief of Facial and Reconstructive Surgery at University of California Medical, San Francisco. “Many matured individuals feel at a real disadvantage interviewing with wrinkles, jowls or bags under their eyes.” The San Francisco Surgery Center and anesthesiologist, Bill Spina MD, will partner with Dr. Kim to provide a facelift and treatments to one deserving winning contestant.

“My practice is in San Francisco,” begins Dr. Kim, “and with 1 out of 11 Californians out of work, I have an increasing number of older unemployed patients who want facial surgery before they start interviewing.” He is not alone. According to the Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons over 2/3 of their members believe that jobseekers are the largest industry trend for 2009.

But does facial rejuvenation really help in getting a job?  A tremendous amount of research has proven that physical attractiveness is an advantage. “Every culture advances those who carry that culture’s desired traits,” says Dr. David W. Kim. “In our culture, prominent signs of aging are usually detrimental in getting a job.”

A firm believer in a natural facial outcome as opposed to a cookie cutter effect, Dr. David W. Kim is the author of 57 papers on beautywith his most recent appearing in March/April JAMA’s Archives of Facial and Reconstructive Surgery.  He is a sought after speaker who has appeared at over 50 conferences from Seoul to Dubai and is a frequent television medical expert. His remarkable facial reconstructive work was a Discovery Television feature.

To enter, contestants can send their Why A Facelift Will Help Me Get Work story, in 250 words or less and attach a facial photo by email to: drkim@dwkimmd.com or by mail to Dr. David W. Kim, 490 Post Street, Suite 933, San Francisco, CA 94102.  They are also encouraged to supplement their entry by posting up to a one-minute video on YouTube and emailing the URL link to drkim@dwkimmd.com.

Dr. Kim will be accepting applications from May 15th through June 15th.  You can learn more about Dr. Kim at www.dwkimmd.com.  The winner will be informed by June 19, 2009.

 Dr. David W. Kim is available for interviews
