First Lady Michelle Obama wears Jason Wu's gown to the Ball

If you are as talented as designer Jason Wu, lightning can indeed strike twice to your career. First Lady Michelle Obama arrived to the Commander-in-Chief inaugural ball last night wearing his stunning ruby red gown, marking the second inaugural she chose to wear one of his creations. From the homepage click here to view Jason Wu's full length inaugural gown.

In 2009, at the first inaugural she surprised fashinistas by wearing a gown he designed, a flowing cream-colored shoulder-baring confection. Jason, then a 26 year old rising-star designer had submitted his dress he had created for her consideration, just as other designers have customarily done. In 2009, the moment First Lady Michelle Obama appeared in Wu's ball gown, was the moment his already fast-rising career launched into hyperspace.

Designers were glued to the television watching the inaugural events to see what Mrs. Obama was wearing hoping it would be from their designs. Wu, 30, was watching the inaugural events on television with his staff in New York City. 

Mrs. Obama appeared in Wu's flowing, belted chiffon and velvet red gown as she joined her husband onstage for their first inauguration dance at the Commander-in-Chief Ball. Wu told the New York Times, "I'm still floating." "It is a big surprise. The White House kept us pretty clueless until five minutes ago."

Wu was born in Taiwan, moved to Canada when he was 9 years old, and graduated from...

Stanford’s New Allergy Clinic Treating Seasonal Sufferers, Complex Cases

Posted by AC Team on Thursday, 31 May 2007

The nice weather that makes Northern California so attractive creates ideal conditions for allergies, according to Kari Nadeau, MD, PhD of Stanford Medical Center's Division of Allergy, Immunology and Asthma.

PALO ALTO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The wonderful weather that makes Northern California so attractive also creates ideal conditions for allergies, according to Kari Nadeau, MD, PhD of Stanford Medical Center's Division of Allergy, Immunology and Asthma.

"Almost one out of every 11 people on the Peninsula has some form of allergy," said Nadeau, who is on the staff of Stanfords new Allergy Clinic. Nadeau says the Bay Area has many pollens, dust and molds that stimulate a lot of common allergies and theres no winter cold season to provide respite from pollen.
