The Long Beach Symphony welcomed its second guest conductor of the season--and the second of five candidates for the post of music director--to the Terrace Theater Saturday evening.

Hair products are no exception to this somewhat creepy phenomenon. Consumers hoping for a hair miracle are willing to pay extra for deep conditioners and conditioning "treatments" that promise an enviable crowning glory -- even when they contain rather odd-seeming ingredients such as placenta, caviar and hemp.
