    Age Fix with Anthony Youn, MD Everyone ages whether they like it or not. But it doesn't mean that some signs of aging can't be fixed. Have you ever thought that it would be great to have friend, who just happened to be a plastic surgeon, and you could ask anything and get a straight answer? Someone who won't judge you about your insecurities but would open up a world of insider tips, tricks, and secrets from the fields of beauty, dermatology, and plastic surgery?
    Well, now you do - because that's Dr. Tony Youn. Yes, plastic surgery trims waistlines and reduces wrinkles, but in The Age Fix, Dr. Youn gives easy home remedies to save you thousands of dollars and achieve the same results without surgery.
    Dr. Youn's goal is to offer you a way to fix your age-related skin concerns, without having in-office treatments, painful surgery, or spending a lot of money. While he acknowledges there are some instances where the only real good option is actual surgery, in most cases he offers ways to turn back the clock in a significant way without even seeing a doctor, much less a plastic surgeon. Throughout the program Dr. Youn reveals tips, tricks, and secrets - natural anti-aging tips plastic surgeons don't want you to know.
    With the simple changes he discusses, you'll look younger on the outside and be younger on the inside. He'll share with the single best cream to put on your skin to prevent aging, and the best cream to reverse aging, and even prevent future skin cancers. And he gives simple and easy treatments to improve most aging concerns, like age spots, wrinkles, and under eye puffiness. He demonstrates do-it-yourself anti-aging treatments, reveals the best products to tighten your skin, and simple dietary changes that can make you look and feel years younger. Your skin will glow, and you'll probably notice a few pounds fall off in the bargain.

    Suze Orman's Financial Solutions for You We all have financial issues and problems. Suze Orman's latest special sharply focuses on her helping individual viewers "find financial solutions for you." As always, Suze's advice is based not just on numbers, but on a critical understanding of ourselves and our emotional needs. The special's central theme is that our financial decision-making should be guided by an understanding of "the goal of money." As Suze perceptively defines it: "The goal of money is to make you feel secure." Our financial solutions should work to fulfill that goal. In addition, Suze stresses the importance of making financial decisions that you feel comfortable with. Financial problems are caused when you do things with money that do not seem "right" to you, despite pressures and advice from others. duration 1:57:06   STEREO TVG

    PBS NewsHour Weekend [#1015H] New York Regulates Ride-Shares The number of for-hire vehicles in New York City has doubled from 63, 000 in 2015 to more than 130,000 today. The influx of Ubers, Lyfts and other ride-share app vehicles on the road has caused the value of the city's taxi medallions to plummet along with drivers' wages. Driver advocates have pointed to those financial struggles as the reason for the suicides of six taxi drivers in recent months. But this month, New York became the first American city to regulate the ride-hailing app industry, with a year-long cap on new licenses. NewsHour Weekend's Hari Sreenivasan reports. duration 24:10   STEREO TVRE
