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

Know Your Legion of Honor Faberge Eggs: #4 Blue Serpent Clock

Saturday, April 4th, 2009

The fantastic Artistic Luxury exhibit at the Legion of Honor Museum continues. Read all about it here and here.

But what about the Faberge Eggs? Here’s one from 1895: The Blue Serpent Clock Egg:

This egg spent a good part of its life with Grace Kelly:

The Egg entered the Princely Collection of Monaco in 1974, as a gift to Prince Rainier III in honor of his Silver Jubilee — the 25th anniversary of his accession to the Grimaldi throne. The Blue Serpent Egg quickly became one of Princess Grace’s most treasured possessions, according to his Serene Highness Prince Albert II, son of Prince Rainier and Princess Grace. She adored it and kept it on the desk in her private study. After her tragic death in 1982, Prince Rainier sealed her suite, preserving the room as a memorial and thereby keeping the Blue Serpent Egg from public view.

But it’s on display now. Check it out, while you can.

Eggs, precious eggs!

Is Hero Pilot Sully Sullenberger Jewish? No, But That’s O.K.

Sunday, February 8th, 2009

Popular Bay Area local Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger III was just seen on the East Coast in his debut interview on 60 Minutes. Not that I ever watch that show, but I’ll check it out tonight, just for kicks. The reminder that his interview with Katie Couric was going to be on tonight came from the spike in traffic this blog just received.

It seems America is still curious about the issue of whether Sully is Jewish (see below for the online search terms people are trying right now), a question that probably wouldn’t have occurred to me otherwise.  The Jewish Post of New York (Your Gateway to the Jewish Worldlooked into it and signs point to no. But that’s O.K., right? A better question might be why he was prepared to act correctly on that day.

The Cap’n

Of course we have a lot of knucklehead pilots up there, so how do we get more like Sully? He stands out with his military experience, the amount of experience he has generally and the number of hours he has spent cogitating about accidents. It’s nice to know that he and his ilk won’t be forced to retire at age 60 (which, until recently, was a hard and fast rule.

And speaking of Sully’s future, it looks like San Francisco politico and Sullenberger family spokesperson Alex Clemens of Barbary Coast Consulting and the famous The Usual Suspects website will have his hands full sorting through all the offers, including one from Richard Branson of Virgin Air.

Anyway, here are some of the search terms people across America are using today:
