What's the song in the new Target commercial?

: i've got a mad little crush on you

Why: I just saw that ad. It's catchy.

Answer: "Hey Na Na" by Katie Herzig! Buy it here on iTunes!
Source: Youtube

The More You Know: Lyrics go like:
I've got a little secret too
I've got a mad little crush on you
I wonder if you notice, wonder if you see
I wonder if you ever want to dance with me
We shall never talk about such things, such things

And oh, before you go, before you go
Let me just take one last glance love
Oh, before you go, before you go
Could you tell me what's my chance love

Low hanging fruit: making antibiotic treatment of skin infections less awful

I recently posted about withholding antibiotics after drainage of uncomplicated purulent skin infections. The group at Denver Health now points to another opportunity for antimicrobial stewardship when treating skin or soft tissue infections (SSTI). Believe it or not, patients admitted with SSTI do not all require treatment with vancopime (or its close relative vancopiptaz (piptamycin?)). These investigators implemented a clinical practice guideline to standardize and simplify the management of patients hospitalized with cellulitis and/or skin abscess. The guideline encouraged more judicious use of testing and imaging, avoidance of broad spectrum gram negative and anaerobic coverage, and shorter courses of therapy with earlier IV to oral transition. You can read the details here, but the guideline resulted in improvement in all areas, significant reductions in use of broad spectrum antibiotics, and no difference in clinical failure rates. The study was single center and quasi-experimental, but clearly points out an area ripe for drastic improvement in most hospitals.

The accompanying editorial by Brad Spellberg is also well worth reading, and locates the cloud in this silver lining: even after the intervention, over one-third of the patients were receiving broad spectrum gram negative active agents and almost half were still receiving broad spectrum anaerobic coverage. And yes, the investigators did exclude those patients who had complicating features (e.g. diabetes, recurrence, fasciitis, etc.) that may have justified such broad spectrum therapy. So even though the intervention was a partial success, challenges to optimizing therapy for SSTI remain.

Is there really a Miss Ultimate Sexy Baby pageant?

: ultimate sexy baby

Why: Tom Hanks did this last night on Jimmy Kimmel.
I happened to watch "Toddlers and Tiaras" for the first time just a few days ago, and I saw this, which kind of made me believe that anything's possible:
Answer: No! Idiot.

And also: There's not even a Sophie Hanks! She was played by 8 year old actress Nikki Hahn.

Tom Hanks has 4 kids: Colin and Elizabeth (with first wife Samantha Lewes) and Chester ("Chet") and Truman with Rita Wilson.

On Feb. 1, 2011, Colin and his wife had a baby, Olivia. And this is what Chet is up to:

The More You Know: Ron Howard's 4 kids are daughters Bryce Dallas (b. March 1981), Jocelyn Carlyle and Paige Carlyle (twins, b. 1985), and son Reed Cross (b. 1987). And his brother is that mutant Johnny Bark. They recently worked together on The Dilemma.

Who does Dave Franco play in "Superbad"?

: dave franco; greg the soccer player

Why: Joel at 2Pz posted this picture of James Franco (yesterday, pre-Oscars) with his cats Sammy and Zelda,
and then I got to reading about how James and his brothers all love kitties, and then I read this sentence,
With his memorable roles in Superbad and a regular gig on TV's Scrubs, Dave been making a name for himself in Hollywood, with very little help from his superstar older brother.
which I thought was weird because I've seen that movie like 14 times in 2011 alone.

Answer: "Greg the Soccer Player"! Is that one of the guys at the party?

Owait, no:

The More You Know: And he's also in this (and so is some lengthy discussion about their cat Toby [and so are some real kitties]).
Incidentally, did you see this last week on SNL? Because it was funny:

Chapel of the Holy Cross, Sedona Arizona

Richard Hein designed the Catholic Chapel of the Holy Cross in 1956 for Frank Lloyd Wright student Marguerite Brunswig Staude. The team got special permission to build on Coconino National Forest, and the total cost was only $300,000.

The form of the cross sinks into the landscape with windows around it forming the chapel inside. The form and decoration is very minimalist with a lighting quality and color that matches the bleak yet beautiful land. The building juts up 250 feet from the rock. It has become an unexpected source of unity for the community.

What does this Post Secret say?

: credo di esser me di te innamorato di te quando mi hai ditto che eri andata in chiesa a chie dere aiuto a dio mia moglie now erede in dio so she ti amo e sono felice e fortunato di averti in contrarti a domani

Why: What?
Answer: MyItalian was all wrong, so Jason's friend Fernando has figured this out. I had copied the original text down wrong. First of all, it's:
Credo di esser mi di te innamorato di te quando mi hai detto che eri andata in chiesa a chiedere aiuto a Dio. Mia moglie non crede in Dio. So che ti amo e sono felice e fortunato di averti incontrarti. A domani.
and the translation is:
I think I fell in love with you when you told me you went to church yesterday to ask God for help. My wife doesn't believe in God. I know I love you and I am happy and fortunate to have found you. Until tomorrow.
Yeah, that guy's a dick. Grazie, Jason e Fernando!

: Google Translate, Babelfish, pals

The More You Know: Oh, there is already a translation at the bottom of the page.
I believe that I'm in love with you since you told me that you were going to church to ask help from God. My wife doesn't believe in God. I know that I love you and I am happy and lucky to have you and see you. Til tomorrow I love you.
Oh well. When will Post Secret start archiving?
