Editor's Note: True beauty knows no boundaries, so we asked staffers Adam Tschorn and Chris Erskine to try out a new product aimed at removing pesky nose hair. Nad's Nose Wax for Men & Women, recently launched in Australia and available in the U.S. online, is designed to be used once a month, unlike hair trimmers, which often must be employed more frequently. That's convenient. But waxing inside the nose? Ouch! Luckily, the guys were intrepid. And they lived to talk about it: Chris: I am struck by [developer]

I promise you this isn't a story about dog treats. If you've been dining out at some of L.A.'s hippest chef-driven restaurants lately, you might have noticed a recurring ingredient on the menu. Pig ears. You heard me, pig ears. Recently, at the L.A. Times Taste event, I decided to serve a pig ear terrine dish from my restaurant Lukshon. Cold, thinly sliced pig ears marinated in black vinegar, Sichuan spices and white sesame oil with thin slices of pickled carrots and scallions.

Tom Brady is often referred to as a pretty boy, and for a pro football player that's not always a compliment. Still that pretty face of his may have helped the New England Patriots quarterback land his supermodel wife, Gisele Bundchen. Anyone who was worried that Tennessee's Kamerion Wimbley messed everything up by giving Brady what may or may not be a broken nose during a sack Sunday can rest at ease. Brady says his wife is actually fond of his newly scarred facial feature. “Yeah, it's OK,” Brady said of his nose during a 12-minute media session Wednesday.

Tom Brady isn't worrying whether he has a broken nose. No word on what super-model wife Gisele Bundchen thinks, though. The New England Patriots quarterback was bloodied in their season-opening 34-13 victory over the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. He wore a bandage during the game after getting sacked by Titans defensive end Kamerion Wimbley and was wearing another following it. When asked by a Boston Globe reporter if it was broken, Brady said, "I don't know. I have no idea what a broken nose feels like.

Fido the dog and Ginger the cat need not worry about being replaced by a new baby - in fact, they could be helping parents raise healthier children. A new study finds that children who lived with dogs or cats during their first year of life got sick less frequently than kids from pet-free zones. The study, published in Monday's edition of the journal Pediatrics, provides fresh evidence for the counterintuitive notion that an overly clean environment may not be ideal for babies.

No. 11 Kansas City Chiefs: DT Dontari Poe, Memphis - - The 346-pound Poe was a tour de force at the scouting combine, when he ran a 4.96-second 40, recorded a 29 1/2-inch vertical leap, and bench-pressed 225 pounds 44 times. “I think I'm explosive -- very explosive,” he said before that performance. “That's probably my biggest strength. Most people think just because I'm big I do nothing but [overpower] you, things like that. I try to use my quickness to my advantage.” The question many scouts have is, where is that potential on tape?

UCLA was working on goal-line plays during practice Thursday when, suddenly, the wrong guy was in the backfield. Nose tackle Brandon Willis shed a block, then wrapped up running back Johnathan Franklin as he got the handoff. "He's an anvil, he's a piece of metal in there," defensive line coach Angus McClure said. "He's hard to move. " Willis is done moving. He crisscrossed the nation three times the last two years, from North Carolina to UCLA and UCLA to North Carolina.

The longest graded stakes race in North America ended Sunday at Santa Anita with a furious two-horse charge down the stretch that was so close at the finish line it took six minutes to decide whose nose crossed the line first. Bourbon Bay and jockey Joel Rosario were determined the winners of the 13/4-mile $150,000 San Juan Capistrano Handicap by a nose over Eagle Poise and jockey Alex Solis. "That's a heart attack horse," a Bourbon Bay supporter quipped in the winner's circle after his No. 2 was posted on the tote board in the first-place position.

Talk about a bad break. Well, two actually, both involving Alejandro Moreno's nose. That has kept the hard-working Chivas USA forward on the sidelines for the first two weekends of the Major Soccer League season. And it has kept him guessing as to when he might finally get into a game. "This is not fun, obviously. It's not what I would have wanted to have to go through in the beginning of my year," said Moreno, whose team took on the Vancouver Whitecaps on Saturday at a soggy Home Depot Center (see latimes.com for results)
