Q: When should I start using a deodorant? My father uses Old Spice. Should I use that brand?A: Whether you wish to use a deodorant is a matter of personal preference, not something that is required for any health reason. When boys enter puberty, they become very conscious of their physical appearance because of the many changes that are occurring. Around mid-puberty (several years after pubic hair first appears), most boys notice an increase in the amount and odor of their sweat.For most young men, this happens around age 13. Because they are self-conscious about their appearance, they often wish to use a deodorant.

I have in hand an appeal on Twitter from @TheBaltimoreChop: "if you could do a column on 'has been named' vs. 'has been hired as' I'd RT that every day for a week. Pretty please?" The Chop does not explain his reasoning in this tweet, though I infer that he disdains the elevation of mere hiring for a job to the level of appointment to a post. Three years ago, I was hired to be the grandiloquently titled Night Content Production Manager at The Baltimore Sun . Saying that I was named Night Content Production Manager would seem a little grand for what is in effect a humble drudge left holding the bag on nights, weekends, and holidays after the important people have left the building.

Charges against a Whiteford man who allegedly used a lighter and Axe deodorant can to shoot flames at his kids were dropped this week so the children wouldn't have to testify, a Harford County prosecutor said.

Drew Westervelt's path to pro lacrosse was slicked with sweat and puke and blood and spit. "You know how it is when you're playing sports," he said. "You leave a lot out there. " So when the 27-year-old Bel Air native and UMBC graduate felt an entrepreneurial tug in 2009, he immediately thought about developing a business cleaning sports facilities. When he went to an uncle seeking financing, he was given one condition: Go see Doug Bradford and Doug McGettigan. The two had been running a cleaning business in Maryland for 25 years.

Beer and body parts were the topics of some lively exchanges recently on my blog, Kasper On Tap. We started off with a discussion of a deodorant from Tom's of Maine that used hops to help kill odor and make guys smell good. Most commenters were "agin" the hoppy deodorant, either because they were allergic to it or because it clashed with their philosophic view that hops should appear only in beer. We then moved onto a look at beer-friendly apparel. I compared the Beerbelly, a new vestlike vessel that you can fill up with beer and wear under your shirt, to beer helmets, hard hats that hold two cans of beer.

In this luxury era, consumers will put TVs in cars, carry Louis Vuitton diaper bags and shell out $200 for a pair of jeans - anything that identifies them as a shot-caller or overall VIP. It's gotten so that we don't even blink anymore when we hear what someone was willing to pay for the latest, must-have bling-bling item. But luxury has now made its way to the most unlikely of places. Your armpits. High-end beauty and fragrance brands have recently begun launching luxury deodorants - just in time for this unbearable heat wave.

I've heard that ibuprofen will negate the positive effects of aspirin if the two are taken together. I read a report that says ibuprofen blocks aspirin's effect for only two hours and that it's safe to take ibuprofen two hours after aspirin to circumvent this effect. Any truth to this? Several years ago, a report in the New England Journal of Medicine (Dec. 20, 2001) suggested that ibuprofen could counteract the anti-clotting benefits of aspirin.

Years ago, I was suffering with sensitivity to all underarm deodorants on the market. I found an alternative product at the health-food store and bought it, though it was dreadfully expensive ($12). The directions said to apply a small amount of this white paste to each clean, dry armpit only once a week. I tried it, and it worked. The ingredients were zinc oxide, rose water and some kind of powder. The tin was so small, I used it up in no time. Then I bought a tube of cheap zinc oxide ointment (75 cents)

I have heard about a link between aluminum in antiperspirants and breast cancer. I have also read that aluminum may be associated with Alzheimer's disease. Every antiperspirant I have checked has aluminum as its main ingredient, which worries me. I switched to a deodorant of mineral salts to get away from aluminum, but I've just discovered that it contains alum. Is that aluminum? The crystal works great, but I don't want aluminum in my life in any form. Is there anything I can use that doesn't contain aluminum?

Back in 1954, when the Russians were evil and I was a first-grader at Wampus Elementary School in Armonk, N.Y., the school authorities regularly conducted emergency drills wherein we students practiced protecting ourselves from nuclear attack by crouching under our desks. We'd hunker down there until Mrs. Hart gave us the word that the nuclear war was over, then we'd crawl back out and resume reading about the fascinating adventures of Dick and Jane. ("Ha!" said Dick.
