The goal is 90 minutes. More is bad. Less is good. One team in this region is consistently doing it in less than 60 minutes. This is what it takes to deliver our kind of heart care. This is what it takes to get the job done. The way we do it. COMMENTARY roger World War II, which trembles in the wind while veterans survive who still breathe on each planet-spinning day, changed every-thing and nothing in China. Brutalized by the Japanese during the war, the Chinese entered the modern world under Mao Tse-tung by brutalizing them-selves and their neighbors. Chairman Mao had fought the armies of the Rising Sun with a ferocity I doubt the Japanese could have anticipated. (The same was true of the United States Marines in the Pacific, whom the Japanese underestimated.) He also fought proponents of democracy in China. Mao held little or no compunction about destroying any who disagreed with him „ if he thought he could. Although he died more than 35 years ago, Maos notion of living and leading, somewhat muted, carries on in current Chinese policies. Here is that notion, evidenced in the stark and repeated punctuation of abuse scribbled out by recent Chinese leaders: Q Power is right. If you arent Chinese and e v en if you are and you have a big mouth, youre the enemy. Q Leadership requires telling the enemy w hat to do and say and making him or her do it. Leaders must employ either arms or money (vinegar or honey) to achieve their ends. Its an unsentimental and pragmatic view, laced with a self-promoting dose of cynicism about the potential of man,Ž not to mention woman. Chinese officials historically and recently have killed, abused or ignored Chromosome X almost at will. Thats changing, of course, as the Chinese recognize that half their talent pool has been sitting on the bench. Even so, the Chinese do not appear to revere the individual spirit and soul in the fashion of Americans or, say, many Tibetans. But they do now revere prosperity and international influence. I was reminded of all this while watching the favorite sporting event of my late great Kentucky-born aunts, the Kentucky Derby. There, 165,000 American souls appeared in $10,000 hats and $20,000 dresses for the women, complete with square jaws and tanned, barbecue jowls over blue blazers for the men. The mint juleps my aunts used to sip were nowhere in evidence. Only the horses, the jockeys and the surgically restored females looked sleek at the Derby. Everyone else was fat, unlike the Chinese, who populated the toney YUM Brands television advertisements like a Cecil B. DeMille troupe of dancing beauties. They appeared on my screen freshly scrubbed and glowing with health and youth in newly opened restaurants serving Ken-tucky Fried Chicken or Pizza Hut pizza or Taco Bell tacos on the clean bustling streets of contemporary Chinese cities. Nowhere appeared the image of a man who stood in front of a tank in Tiananmen Square. Nowhere did a threadbare Tibetan appear, either. The Chinese swallowed Tibet in 1959. Now they cant figure out what to do with a people so determined and resilient, so courageous and gentle as those still led by Tibets Buddhist leader in exile, the irre-pressible champion of singular and eternal soul, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. Nowhere appeared a mention of Chen Guangcheng, the courageous lawyer held for the last seven years and periodically beaten along with his wife and children after pro-testing forced abortions and other crimes by Chinese officials. Finally he escaped, making his way safely into U.S. hands last week, but we were tenta-tive about embracing him. We were careful, we were measured, we were calm. Fattened by trade and obligation, perhaps „ two conditions I favor if theyre mutual, since they can harness a peace „ we were mostly passive in our rescue. About Tibet or Tiananmen Square, meanwhile, weve done little but watch and doze. We do applaud politely on occasion „ but not when a Tibetan immolates himself in protest, an act we probably cant understand. We continue to borrow money and to trade for daily comforts with the Chinese as if we were good friends. We are not good friends, however, and that fact raises some uncomfortable questions. What if our most dangerous enemy is not a terrorist with a suitcase bomb and an inhu-mane anger, but a baseball hat and a T-shirt? What if its a cell phone, an iPod, a flashlight, a pair of trousers, a shirt, blouse or dress, a set of tools, a handbag or shoes? What if our most dangerous enemy is our own comfort „ our own greedy desire to get something more for something less? It isnt just a national question, either. Its a Sunshine State question. How much do we like comfort at the expense of others? Floridas overall trade (exports and imports) with China increased by 27.8 per-cent between 2009 and 2010, at a total of $7.4 billion last year,Ž according to a report from Enterprise Florida, the states economic development outfit. Of the nations ranking as Floridas top merchandise trading partners in 2010, China was third. And among those from which the state received imports, China was first. Imports (range) from travel products to elec-tronic parts. Exports (range) from civilian aircraft to still cameras and flash devices.Ž How nice for everybody. But under all that prosperity and trade lies Chairman Mao. Still. We can trade, but we must not forget.Let me look back at Mao one more time. He had a lot in common, perhaps, with Saint Louis of France „ Louis IX „ the great Catholic leader of two 13th-century Crusades to the Holy Land. Not in casualty counts, though. Between 1958 and 1962, Mao probably coerced and then killed between 18 million and 33 million people to make the great leap forward,Ž according to demographers and historians. Louis never dreamed of that ocean of blood. But like Mao, Louis was determined and not faint of heart. An ardent anti-Semite, he once offered this imperative for the treatment of non-Christians: Either convert them with the word,Ž or run a sword through their bodies as far as it will go and send them home to God (thats a close paraphrase). For the Chinese, the wordŽ now appears to come couched in a quivering flex of eco-nomic muscle, with the sword still sheathed but increasingly visible. Q Looking ahead to the East

A4 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 10-16, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLY rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly OPINIONThe Left’s favorite bad statistic amy GOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly Archimedes didnt say, Give me a bad statistic, and I will move the Earth.Ž But that was only because the ancient Greek mathematician wasnt familiar with the ways of Washington. An entire movement has grown up around the factoid that American women make about 80 percent of the pay of men. It is a reliable talking point of Democrats who insist the country is racked by a War on Women.Ž A raft of proposed legislation purports to rem-edy the discrimination exposed by the damning number. MSNBC host Rachel Maddow recently wielded the statistic on Meet the Press,Ž and reacted with shocked disbe-lief that anyone would question such a cold, hard fact, as if it were as incontest-able as the circumference of the Earth. Never mind that the figure is crude and misleading. The latest data from the Labor Department say that women made 82.2 percent of what men made in the first quarter of 2012. Thats a considerable gap, but comparing all women versus all men is not particularly telling when all sorts of variables „ occupa-tion, levels of experience, education, hours worked „ are in play. Women gravitate,Ž Carrie Lukas of the Independent Womens Forum writes, toward jobs with fewer risks, more comfortable conditions, regular hours, more personal fulfillment and greater flexibility. Simply put, many women „ not all, but enough to have a big impact on statistics „ trade higher pay for other desirable job characteris-tics.Ž The Institute for Womens Policy Research, a feminist outfit obsessed with the wage gap, published a study noting that twice as many women as men work in jobs with median earn-ings below the federal poverty line for a family of four. Unless all these women „ some 5.5 million „ were coerced into these positions, this fact alone shows how occupational choice influences the wage gap. The slogan that invariably accompanies the 80 percent statistic is equal pay for equal work.Ž But men and women get paid differently for different work. War-ren Farrell points out in his book Why Men Earn MoreŽ that the 25 worst jobs in terms of stress and physical demands „ occupations like sheet-metal worker and firefighter „ are more than 90 percent male. In general, men who are employed full time work more hours a day than women employed full time (8.2 hours compared with 7.8, according to the Labor Department), and women are much more likely to interrupt their careers to have children, affecting their earning power over time. With women now earning about 60 percent of bachelors and masters degrees, and reaching parity with men in medical and law schools, it stands to reason that the wage gap will narrow, even if it doesnt disappear. A study by a research organization called Reach Advisors shows that single women in their 20s make 105 percent of single men in their 20s in urban areas, and 120 percent in certain cities with a heavily knowledge-driven employment base.Ž These women must not realize that they will never make their way in the workplace without Congress some-how acting to ensure equal pay.Ž In the end, the reality doesnt matter. A bad statistic never dies. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.The real Mad Men: Following the money behind TV political adsMay Day, Murdoch and the murder of Milly Dowler. What do they have to do with the 2012 U.S. general elec-tion? This years election will undoubt-edly be the most expensive in U.S. history, with some projections topping $5 billion. Not only has the amount of spending increased, but its nature has as well, following the 2010 U.S. Supreme Courts Citizens United rul-ing, which allows unlimited spending by corporations, unions and so-called super PACs, all under the banner of free speech.Ž This campaign season will unfold amidst a resurgent Occupy Wall Street movement, challenging cor-porate power, launched globally on May 1, the same day the British Parliament released a report on Rupert Murdochs media empire, charging that he is not a fit person to exercise the stewardship of a major international company.Ž Now more than ever, people should heed the advice of the famous Watergate source, Deep Throat: Follow the money.Ž Most money in our elections goes to TV stations to run political adver-tisements. According to writers Robert McChesney and John Nichols in the Monthly Review, the amount of political ad spending is skyrocketing, such that, factoring for inflation, the 1972 election spent less than 3 percent of what will be spent on TV political ads in the 2012 election cycle.Ž For just one relatively small race, a recent Penn sylv ania congressional primary between Democrats, journalist Ken Knelly provided a comprehensive analysis of the local TV news coverage compared with the amount of political ads that ran on the same TV stations. Knellys headline says it all: 28 hours of political ads (and a few minutes of news).Ž More than 3,300 ad spots were run on the stations serving the predomi-nantly Democratic district. Lost in the hours of ads, Knelly writes, viewers got the very occasional news report on the race,Ž which he said contained very little substance. How Knelly was able to probe these details is crucial. The Federal Commu-nications Commission requires that TV stations maintain a public inspection file, and any member of the public can view it. Within the disclosures are the details of the political advertising pur-chases made, the amounts paid and what entity bought the airtime. Recent efforts have been made to compel these hugely profitable broadcast entities to pub-lish these files online. The broadcast-ers have vigorously fought such efforts and, although they usually prevail in the industry-friendly halls of the FCC, have lost this battle. On Friday, April 27, the FCC voted 2-1 to require stations to transition from paper to online fil-ing over a two-year period. ProPublica reporter Justin Elliot notes the files will not be provided in a standard format, and will likely not be searchable. Most of the major U.S. broadcast networks lobbied against the new dis-closure rules, including Fox Television, one of the crown jewels of Rupert Mur-dochs News Corp. media empire. Mur-doch received a stinging rebuke this week with the release of a British Par-liament report on the phone-hacking scandal that has racked his newspapers in Britain. The scandal exploded in 2011, when The Guardian reported that News of the World reporters had hacked into the voice mail of 13-year-old murder vic-tim Milly Dowler in 2002. While Dowl-er was still missing, reporters deleted some of her voice mails, which gave false hope to her family that she still might be alive. Journalists, along with both a judicial inquiry and parliamentary hearings, have uncovered a culture of criminal-ity behind much of the newsgathering facade at Murdochs now-defunct News of the World newspaper in London. The parliamentary committee released its report this week, saying the Mur-doch-controlled company stonewalled, obfuscated and misled and (would) only come clean, reluctantly, when no other course of action was sensible.Ž The scandal also led to the discovery of bribery of British police officials, which, because News Corp. is a U.S. corporation, could fall under the U.S. federal Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, which prohibits bribery by U.S. compa-nies overseas. In response, the nonpar-tisan group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington petitioned the FCC to strip Murdoch of the 27 televi-sion broadcast licenses he controls in the U.S. While it is a crime to bribe a police officer in London, it is perfectly legal to spend $5 billion to influence the course of U.S. elections, and for powerful broadcasters thereby to reap enormous profits. The FCC is to be applauded for its new transparency rules. Ultimately, political candidates should have free airtime to present their platform to the voters. Until then, its up to journalists, activists and regular citizens to follow the money.

BY GINA SPADAFORI Universal UclickThis weeks column is an excerpt from the just-released book, Your Cat: The Owners Manual.Ž To get the entire first chapter free, visit Nearly everything about your cats anatomy suggests her genetic heritage to hunt, and hunt well. Her feet are designed for silent stalking; her claws can hook anything and wont let go; her teeth are long, pointed and razor-sharp. So what do you feed a creature who is so obviously designed to fend for herself? Choosing a cat food should be simple business, but with so many options available, it can be tricky to find the right diet for your cats best health. Even after 30 years of prac-ticing veterinary medicine, I have to admit I sometimes find myself a little staggered by todays pet food aisle. When I was a kid, we fed our cats in the barn from a 50-pound bag of generic, feed-store kibble. Now, I go to the grocery store that sells my own food, and see row upon row of dry, canned and even refriger-ated fresh foods for felines „ something for every taste, dietary need and preference. As a consumer, its great to have choices. But you have to be able to sort through your options, weigh costs vs. benefits, and know how to compare to do your cat justice. After all, selecting a healthful, appropriate diet for your cat and feeding right-sized portions is one of the most important things you can do to ensure her good health and longevity. Knowing how your cats nutritional needs dif-fer from your own may help put her very distinc-tive dietary requirements in perspective: Q Must have meat. The f eline s ystem is designed to depend on the consump-tion of other animals to survive and thrive. Unlike humans and dogs, who are omnivores and can stay healthy on a variety of diets, cats are strictŽ or obligateŽ carnivores. Just like their distant cousins the lion, the tiger and the cheetah, house cats not only prefer meat, they cant maintain good health without it. Q Pound for pound, cats need far more pr ot ein. A cat needs more than double the amount of protein per pound of body weight that a person requires. And even though we omnivores can meet our protein require-ments with non-meat foods like dairy prod-ucts, nuts and beans, cats dont have that luxury „ animal protein is the only kind that fulfills their nutritional needs. If a cat doesnt get enough protein in his diet, his body will actually break down his own muscle tissue to get the nutrients he needs. Q Cats sponge vitamins and amino acids from their prey. There are some nutrients that an omnivore can produce or convert from food that cats have to get ready-to-use from their diets. Unless your cat is dining on a whole, fresh vermin several days a week, you need to pro-vide a diet that provides these nutrients in usable form. Q Many cats dont get thir st y. Cats are descended from desert hunt-ers, and many scientists believe this is the reason they dont seem to have a strong thirst drive. In the wild, this isnt too much of an issue „ any fresh prey a cat would catch is mostly made of water. In a world of indoor cats eating dry kibble, how-ever, this can become a big problem. Cats need plenty of water, whether they drink it directly or get it from their food. Without enough water in their diets, cats are suscep-tible to urinary tract problems. To help pre-vent problems with dehydration, make sure your cat absolutely always has fresh water available. A better solution is a pet-sized water fountain „ these encourage your cat to drink more, and more often. Your cats veterinarian is the best resource for advice on choosing a food thats best for your pet. Whether you shop for pet food in a grocery store, pet boutique or big-box retailer, your veterinarian will be able to point you in the right direction. Q Pets of the Week PET TALESFeed your felineCheck in with your veterinarian for cat’s nutritional guidance>>Lola is a 7-year-old spayed Labrador mix. ‘Whatever Lola wants, Lola gets,’ except this Lola needs a home.

LETTER to the EDITOR Dear Editor,This letter is in response to film critic Dan Hudak and his mean-spirited review of the heartwarming true doc-umentary film ChimpanzeeŽ (Florida Weekly, April 26). I am a friend and advocate of Dr. Jane Goodall, her institute, and the Save the Chimps Sanctuary in Fort Pierce. I was blessed to partake in a once-in-a-lifetime pilgrimage with the Jane Goodall Insti-tute to the remote island of Gombe in Africa, where I net Dr. Goodalls videographer Bill Wallauer, one of the videographers for this film. What a kind and compassionate young man. It was an honor and pleasure to have drinks in the treehouse that Bill lived in while spend-ing decades following Dr. Jane and the chimps around the hot jungle sun with his camera in tow! These wonderful people have given blood, sweat and tears studying, photo-graphing and living amongst our closest living relative, the chimpanzee, in order to educate the world about this endan-gered species. What great works these people do to make the world a better place for people, animals, the environ-ment and conversation! Dan, the pen is mightier than the sword, and you wasted an opportunity to enlighten and educate your readers to the plight of this intelligent and sensi-tive animal. On the same page you added insult to injury by rating The Three StoogesŽ movie more stars. Is that not childish and trite? Dan, in a world wrought with greed, avarice, hate and mans inhumanity to man and beast, it saddened my soul to read your cavalier and insensitive remarks about this touching film! Dan, we need to spread Dr. Goodalls mes-sage. Only if we understand can we care. Only if we care will we help, and only if we help shall all be saved!Ž Dan, I hope you have an opportunity to visit the chimp sanctuary in Fort Pierce and meet our local heroes who passionately and tirelessly operate this blessed sanctuary for chimpanzees. The chimps will enlighten and edu-cate you, and maybe it will be a day of R&R „ respect and restitution for your chumpedŽ up charges!Debra Allison Cohn Palm Beach Gardens“Chimpanzee” movie review was mean-spirited, unenlightened 2 DAY MOTHER’S DAY BEAD BLOWOUT Hadley Ann 70% OFF STORE PRICES New solid sterling silver CHARMS & GLASS BEADS starting at $7 99 compare at $35!

A8 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 10-16, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLYat the door to her sunny, art-filled home in Palm Beach Gardens and asks them to hand a stack of newspapers to Rosebud. One looks around for an assistant and then realizes she was referring to their Labrador retriever, who gently grips the papers in her teeth and sets them down on a cocktail table. The dog curls up, first with Mrs. Brown, then with Mr. Brown, as they talk about the Dramaworks first sea-son in its new space and how they got involved with the theater, to which they gave $2 million. When we came down to Florida, people said to us, Oh, southern Flor-ida is a bit of a cultural wasteland. It doesnt have a reputation for being a real cultural center, so that was one of the reasons we were anxious to support Dramaworks ƒ we think it really gives a focus of culture to this life here,Ž Mrs. Brown says. But before there was a Dramaworks, there were the Browns, working with art and cultural groups in New York and Washington „ they both grew up in the capital and still have a home there; they spend summers on Marthas Vineyard. Both have been active in Democratic politics „ their vehicles sport Obama stickers „ and Mrs. Brown served two terms as chairman of the U.S. Consum-er Product Safety Commission, until I was fired by George W. Bush,Ž she says. Its a badge of honor, she says.That passion extends to their support of the so-called Buffett Rule, in which Warren Buffett called for the wealthy to pay a larger percentage of their income in taxes. So heres a businessman whos willing to pay more taxes, believes in the Buffett Rule,Ž Mrs. Brown says. Mr. Buffett was in Mr. Browns high school class in Washington, where Mr. Buffetts father served in Congress. He comes to all the high school reunions,Ž Mr. Brown says. In Florida, both Mr. and Mrs. Brown play tennis and golf, and she is known for her finesse at tournament bridge. Mrs. Brown joined the board at Jupiters El Sol Center, a community center that primarily serves the areas immi-grant workers, and has given safety seminars there. They remain true to their politics, hosting fundraisers at their home for the likes of Sen. Bill Nelson and U.S. Reps. Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Ted Deutch. We havent given anything for Allen West,Ž Mrs. Brown says. She retains a great affection for Bill and Hillary Clinton. What was it like working in the Clinton administration? It was absolutely fabulous,Ž Mrs. Brown said. My special friend was Mrs. Clinton, who had known about the work I had done for childrens safety and advocacy. Both Mrs. Clinton and Mrs. Gore were available all the time to do any kind of projects with us. If we wanted to talk about he dangers of inline skating, Tipper Gore skated around the mall in her protective gear to show what you should wear for inline skating. When we wanted to talk about the dangers in childcare, and day-care centers, problems with cribs and high chairs, Mrs. Clinton took us to a day-care center and talked with us about it.Ž There was no slouching on the job. We had a house in Florida at that time and I was rarely here. Its really a 24-hour-a-day job, even when youre not working those few hours, you have receptions and things,Ž she said. That work ethic was infectious.That had ramifications for the people who worked for her at the agency, too, who were not used to really work-ing as hard as they ended up working because she set such a good example for them, I think,Ž Mr. Brown said. Well, the Clinton administration set that example for me. You can see how Mrs. Clinton is as secretary of state. Shes indefatigable,Ž Mrs. Brown says. And thats across the board.She has a wonderful sense of humor; she likes to have a beer with her friends. She is enormously loyal to the people who work for her,Ž Mrs. Brown says. I just can tell you there is nobody as loyal, as fun, as bright as Hillary Clinton.Ž Except for me,Ž Mr. Brown says. For his part, Mr. Brown has stayed busy. He has been a real estate attorney and real estate investor and developer in Washington for more than 50 years, and he was a founder of the law firm of Brown, Gildenhorn & Jacobs and a founder of the JBG Real Estate Compa-nies. During Mrs. Browns stint in Washington, Mr. Brown taught in the 80s and 90s at the Harvard Business School. He also taught real estate at the Columbia Graduate School of Business, the Yale Graduate School of Manage-ment, the George Washington School of Business, and the University of the District of Columbia School of Busi-ness. He also has served as a guardian ad litem. I cant tell you how popular his classes are,Ž Mrs. Brown says. I used to go up there, and here they had a real-life person rather than a person who was teaching from books. When I went there, the room was full, it was oversubscribed, and there were stairs „these were big rooms at the business school „ and there were stairs lead-ing down to the room. The stairs had people sitting on them as well leading into the class.Ž That is theatrical in its own right, but what was the attraction to legitimate theater and to Dramaworks? Well, I got interested in theater 50 years ago at least, when I was one of the founders of Arena Stage in Washington, and weve supported Roundabout Theatre in New York,Ž Mr. Brown says. Were big supporters of Roundabout.

WEEK OF MAY 10-16, 2012 A9 RACHEL HICKEY/FLORIDA WEEKLYAnn and Don Brown stand in the garden of their Palm Beach Gardens home.Our daughter is on the board,Ž Mrs. Brown says. And its hard not to be impressed with the people at Dramaworks. They do such a good job and are so conscien-tious. Theyve got artistic ability, but they have business acumen also,Ž Mr. Brown says. His wife does not mind performing „ maybe she draws a little inspiration from a childhood friend, the gay rights activist and playwright Larry Kramer. I was a sort of an amateur performer. I sang and danced in camp and at school. I never very much pursued it professionally at all, but in my career, being able to do television was some-thing I did all the time, and I appreciat-ed good performers and performances,Ž Mrs. Brown says. As chairman of the Consumer Product Safety Commission, she appeared on the TodayŽ show on a regular basis, warn-ing audiences about product recalls. They really invited her back over and over again,Ž Mr. Brown says. In fact, when her term was up after eight years, they gave her a contract to continue reporting.Ž But thats because Im a bit of a ham,Ž she says with a laugh. And she wanted her name associated with something of quality. Mrs. Brown joined the Dramaworks board when she started to spend more time in South Florida. And in addition to raising two daughters (they have four grandchildren), she has served on the opera and symphony boards in Wash-ington. She is proud of this first season in the new space. Im overwhelmed; I think we both are. I think each thing has been mas-sively successful. As you know, theyve had to extend the runs. The Wall Street Journal, of course, gave them a rave review. Its not so often that one of the New York newspapers will review a regional theater,Ž Mrs. Brown said. At 218 seats, the new theater is nearly triple the size of the former space on Banyan Boulevard, but it remains an inti-mate hall. We both love the theater. There is not a bad seat in that theater. Im just thrilled to have my name, and Dons name, on that theater,Ž Mrs. Brown says. Her husband agrees.The fact that we were delighted to have our name associated with Drama-works tells you we thought it was really special ... Most of our giving has been anonymous,Ž he says. Well, not so anonymous anymore.With all the national attention Dramaworks has received, can the heavens be next? I will say that my daughter said the sign was so big and bright that you could see it from outer space,Ž Mrs. Brown says. Or at least from Flagler Drive. Q


A10 WEEK OF MAY 10-16, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLY 4755 PGA Boulevard, Palm Beach Gardens (561) 799-05559186 Glades Road, Boca Lyons Plaza(561) 477-4774 Lic. #HS8984 High-tech auto enhancementsSophisticated automobile technology makes high-performance engines purr in relative silence, but automakers fear that their most demanding drivers are emo-tionally attached to the engines roar. Consequently, as Car and Driver report-ed in April, the 2012 BMW M5, with 560 horsepower tempered with sound dead-eners, has installed pre-recorded engine noise, channeled into the cars cabin via the stereo system. A computer program matches the amplitude of the engines growl to the drivers accelerator-revving. In other automobile tech news, Peugeot technicians announced in March that they were preparing mood paintŽ for the body of the companys iconic RCZ model. The paints molecular structure would be alterable by heat sensors in the steering wheel and elsewhere that measure a drivers stress levels. A calm driver might see his car turn green, for instance „ but watch out for road-rage red! Q High society fisticuffsQ At a March Chicago Symphony Orchestra performance, the music con-tinued uninterrupted as two patrons engaged in a fistfight over box seat-ing. Conductor Riccardo Muti never stopped conducting,Ž said a patron. He very gracefully, without missing a beat „ literally „ brought (the second move-ment) to a very quiet and subdued close.Ž Q It costs $8,500 (plus $3,000 annual dues) to join the ultra-prestigious New York Athletic Club, which counts Olym-pic champions among its upper-crust members. However, an April brawl in a back room, said to have begun over a woman, saw (according to witnesses) fighting wolf packsŽ in a lions pitŽ that resulted in several bloody injuries, with two people sent to the hospital and three arrested. Q Names in the newsQ Arrested for felony battery in Bloomington, Ind., in April: Ms. Fellony Silas, 30. Q Announced as eligible for parole in June by the Kansas Prison Review Board: Mr. Wilford Molester Galloway. Q Arrested for hit-and-run in April in Roseville, Calif.: Mr. Obiwan Kenobi, 37. Q Arrested on drug and weapons charges in Clarkstown, N.Y., in April: Mr. Genghis Khan. Q Among the silly town names uncovered in an April report on Why, Ariz., Whynot, Miss., Hell, Mich., Pig, Ky., Elephant B utte, N .M., Monkeys Eyebrow, Ky., and Embarrass, Minn. The report also found towns in Wales and New Zealand that are 58 and 57 letters long, respectively. Q Bright ideasQ Following her recent holiday in the United States, in which she passed through Boring, Ore. (pop. 12,000), Scots-woman Elizabeth Leighton returned home to suggest that officials in her hometown of Dull, Scotland, arrange for the two towns to become sister cit-ies,Ž even though they did not qualify under normal protocols because of Bor-ings larger size. (The Oregon town was named for a Civil War soldier, William H. Boring.) Q Some villagers in Chinas Shandong Province who are too poor or isolated to hook up to home heating fuel service have an alternative, according to a March report by China News Center. They take giant, heavy-duty balloons that resemble 15-foot-long condoms and walk to fill-ing stations to inflate them with natural gas every four or five days. The danger of explosion is high, but the balloons remain many villagers best option. Q Planned Parenthood has survived a controversial de-funding campaign over its limited abortion program, but its Washington state chapter, Planned Par-enthood of the Great Northwest, began a quixotic safe-sex campaign in February in which thousands of condoms were distributed with scannable barcodes. The plan was that users would automatically register information about their loca-tions during sex, and, if the users chose, other information about the particular sexual experience they just had. Among the choices: Ah-maz-ing,Ž Rainbows exploded and mountains trembled,Ž and Things can only improve from here.Ž Q Oops!Q At the 10th Arab Shooting Championships in Kuwait in March, as medals were presented and winners national anthems were played, officials were apparently ill-prepared for medalist Maria Dmitrienko of Kazakhstan. Con-sequently, her national anthemŽ was, inadvertently, the humorous ditty from the movie Borat.Ž (Instead of such lyr-ics as sky of golden sunŽ and legend of courage,Ž the audience heard Great-est country in the world / All other countries are run by little girlsŽ and Filtration system a marvel to behold / It removes 80 percent of human solid waste.Ž) Ms. Dmitrienko reportedly kept a mostly straight face throughout, although Kazakhstan later demanded, and received, an official apology. Q Least-competent criminalsRobert Strank, 39, was arrested in Beavercreek, Ohio, in April and charged with trying to rob the Huntington Bank. Accord-ing to police, he had approached the banks counter but become ill and asked a teller to call 911 to summon medics. There were conflicting news reports about when med-ics arrived to treat Mr. Strank, but there was agreement that Mr. Strank recovered and subsequently presented the same tell-er his pre-written holdup note demanding cash. He was arrested in short order. Q NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE

Expires May 31, 2012 HEALTHY LIVINGLiving together before doesn’t necessarily mean happily ever after linda The lease renewal sat on the kitchen table. Jenna was about to start the loadedŽ conversation, but stopped herself because she didnt want to rock the boat. She and Jason had been getting along amazingly well. She knew in her heart he was the one,Ž but he became evasive whenever she brought up the future. They had never officially agreed to live together. It had just sort of happened. She had started staying over more and more evenings, and somehow or other, her things had begun to take over his closets. When her roommate relocated, she let her apartment go, and Jason didnt seem to mind. In fact, he seemed delighted that she was there full time. But now that theyd been living together for three years and her 35th birthday was around the corner, she wanted a more serious commitment. It bothered her that Jason never initiated a discussion about getting married, and that he seemed quite content with the status quo. Living together before marriage has become an increasing trend. Some stud-ies cite that more than 60 percent of couples live together before they marry. The prevailing wisdom for many cou-ples has been that living together can be a valuable step to ascertain whether they have the compatibility to sustain a long-term, committed marriage. Living in the same space over time will certainly give us feedback about our partners hygiene, habits and quirks, and should be a means of gaining feed-back before we make a lifetime com-mitment. And, we may truly believe this knowledge about our partner may be what it takes to avoid making a poor marital decision. Some statistics have shown the opposite trend. Studies have reported that living together prior to making a firm decision about marriage actually may place us in the pool of marriages that do not make it. Researchers for the Centers for Disease Control conducted a study from the years 2006-2010 and reported that those who were engaged and living together were as likely to have mar-riages that lasted more than 15 years, as couples who did not live together before marriage. But a significant finding was that couples living together for a period of time prior to making a joint decision about getting married had a lower chance of surviving the 15-year mark. So, how do we understand these statistics? In a different project, Scott Stan-ley, a University of Denver psycholo-gist, spent more than 15 years trying to determine why premarital cohabitation has been associated with lower levels of marital satisfaction and an increased potential for divorce. He confirmed that the couples that made a clear commit-ment to marry prior to living together enjoyed the same statistical outc omes as those who did not live together. However, he showed concern about a large group of those who live together who were more ambiguous about their long-term commitments toward each other. Oftentimes, one member of the couple viewed the arrangement as an important step headed towards mar-riage, while the other was less certain. According to Stanley, Couples can slide into living together and then some-times slide further into having kids and getting married without openly discuss-ing the transitions and decision-making about them.Ž He adds that: commit-ment is fundamentally about making a decision ... making the choice to give up other choices. It cant be a commitment if its not a decision. But people, on average, dont seem to be talking about what (cohabitation) means for them as a couple. They just find themselves doing it.Ž In a recent New York Times article, Dr. Meg Jay confirmed the find-ings of the above studies. She reported that, when living together, partners often have different, unspoken „ even unconscious „ agendas. Women are more likely to view cohabitation as a step toward marriage, while men are more likely to see it as a way to test a relationship or postpone commitment, and this gender asymmetry is asso-ciated with negative interactions and lower levels of commitment even after the relationship progresses to marriage. One thing men and women do agree on, however, is that their standards for a live-in partner are lower than they are for a spouse.Ž She further reports that although sliding intoŽ cohabitation may hap-pen smoothly, sliding outŽ of cohabita-tion often does not. Once possessions, finances, pets and friends have been intermingled, it can be stressful and complicated to extricate oneself from the relationship. Whats crucial for all of us is to consider how we make measured, purpose-ful decisions, carefully considering our own needs and desires, and taking the care to learn as much as we can about our intended partner. As Dr. Jay sadly reports: Founding relationships on convenience or ambi-guity can interfere with the process of claiming the people we love. A life built on top of maybe youll doŽ simply may not feel as dedicated as a life built on top of the we doŽ of commitment or marriage.Ž Q Linda Lipshutz, LCSW, ACSW, is a psychotherapist serving individuals, couples and families.

Call 626.9801(spaces are filling up, call today!) Acronyms describing elements of the very complex financial and econom-ic world in which we live are becoming increasingly cryptic. In fact, casual coffee shop conversations about the topic might require an interpreter. Here is a review of the often-used acronyms of QEs and TARP „ why they came about, what they mean and a few related facts that even a dedicated financial news follower might be surprised to know. First, the U.S. Sub Prime Crisis/Great Recession, which had its beginnings in 2007 (not really knowing when its endings will ultimately be) caused actions by both Congress and the Federal Reserve Bank to undertake extreme and controversial mea-sures to avoid an outright collapse of the U.S. banking system and a full scale depres-sion after the total and/or near collapses of Bear Stearns, Lehman, AIG, General Motors and a host of large U.S. and interna-tional banking/financial institutions. The Fed had been playing an interest rate accommodative role though out much of 2007 and 2008 but Lehmans failure (an unfathomed bankruptcy of a U.S. govern-ment bond dealer) was a crescendo that resulted in Congress finally doing a gar-gantuan something.Ž Until then, Congress was leaving the problem solely at the Feds doorstep. The remedial legislation was the Troubled Asset Relief Program, or TARP, and its passage by Congress was extremely controversial. The program took the U.S. government deeply down the path of bail-ing out the private sector. Originally, TARP was sized at $700 billion with losses or non-repayments expect-ed to total $300 billion. It was subsequently reduced in size to $431 billion out the Trea-sury door, of which $32 billion is the current loss estimate. TARP included assistance to U.S. banks ($205 billion in preferred stock bought by the Treasury and an additional $40 billion in loans to Bank of America and Citibank, combined); the automotive industry, mostly GM ( $60 billion in all); and subprime poster child AIG ($68 billion individually). These monies went out the door lickety-split. And, as fair is fair, it is noted that the banks have repaid almost the entire $245 billion „ $226 billion has been repaid, $3 billion has been written off, and $17 billion is outstanding. Good news beyond that is that $25 billion in profit is expected to be ultimately earned on the money. Not such good news for AIG or the automotive industry assistance. (For the Congressional Budget Offices March 2012s report on TARP, go to Now some other TARP money was a lot stickier and has not quite made it out of the Treasurys wallet and to its intended recipients. Of the $22 billion slotted for investment partnerships (i.e. government teaming with the private sector to buy distressed mortgages), all but $4 billion has been spent. As pathetic and as dismal as it sounds, the part of the TARP program designed to help homeowners was authorized for a scant $16 billion and only $3 billion has been spent. So, to be clear, the damage-or (perceived to be banks) got the Treasury assistance money and got it fast; the dam-age-ee (the homeowner) has yet to receive 80 percent of the $16 billion in intended assistance. The Treasurys Home Affordable Modification Program has been largely ineffec-tive in preventing foreclosures. Treasury officials have suggested that several more effective, downstream, state-run programs that it funded were better at solving the problem. However, these state initiatives (including in Florida) have largely failed to get mortgage servicer support. Bottom line: Big government failed to help the small guy. Now, on to QE, short form for Quantitative Easing, any of a variety of unconven-tional actions taken by a central bank to stimulate an economy. For the U.S., the conventional monetary measures failed; in 2007 to 2008, the Fed had been lowering rates and injecting liquidity into the mar-kets, but such was deemed a few buckets bailing a Titanic. So in 2008-2009, the Fed started buying all sorts of mortgages and other assets to inject more capital into a system that was deep in recession. After the fact, this first round of quantitative eas-ing was termed QE1. Size „ agency debt securities, mortgage-backed securities and treasuries were bought until the Feds pur-chases were at a $2.1 trillion peak in 2010. Since then, the Federal Reserve has undertaken a second round of unconven-tional easing, announced in August 2010 after a rout in the U.S. equities market. As TARP and QE1 were ineffective to stimulate a sustained recovery, the Fed undertook the goal of bringing mortgage rates even lower „ and why not, as TARP money was not getting to distressed homeowners. Size „ $600 billion in Treasury purchases. Everyone is now wondering when and if QE3 will happen and what financial mar-ket contortions it will entail. If the U.S. is falling back into low GDP growth (under 2 percent is considered to be a critical threshold below which the rate of unem-ployment rises), a QE action could likely happen. Those who believe the Fed does not operate in a political vacuum think it will be timed to be most beneficial to the administrations re-election bid. Certainly some citizens might be upset that the homeowner assistance never hap-pened and may be wondering if big gov-ernment can ever execute for the little guy. Some citizens might be happy that the banks have largely repaid and the Treasury might end up making a couple of pen-nies on its bank equity purchases. Every-one can agree that the Fed practices have morphed into too complicated to be easily explained.Ž Q „ There is a substantial risk of loss in trading futures and options on futures contracts.

BUSINESS FLORIDA WEEKLY A GUIDE TO THE PALM BEACH COUNTY BUSINESS INDUSTRY WEEK OF MAY 10-16, 2012 A19 Whether you have a job and are looking to make a change or are currently unemployed, job fairs can be a great way to meet with recruiters. But they also can be intimidating. With some job fairs attracting thousands of applicants, its important to arm yourself with a plan of action before you arrive. As a veteran human resources professional who has been on point at many job fairs, I have witnessed the good, the bad and the ugly in job fair behavior. By reviewing the following tips and techniques, youll be prepared for a suc-cessful experience.The Good Q Knowledge is Power: Smart candidates research each job fair and decide in advance which companies are of interest to them. They then read as much as they can about favorite companies. When they arrive at the job fair, they have a short list of companies to connection with. A recruiter meet-ing with dozens of people in one day is much more likely to remember the applicant who took the time to do his or her research. Q Demonstrate aptitude: S a vvy job fair attendees focus on how his or her experience can benefit a company, not necessarily how the company can ben-efit them. Offer tangible insight on how your skills translate to the needs of the employer. Q Presentation counts: Y ou w ant to stand out from the crowd in a positive, professional manner. Even if you are applying for a position that will require a uniform, wear a freshly pressed suit, make sure that hair and nails are freshly groomed and wear professional (yet comfortable) shoes. Savvy recruiters look for long-term potential. Can this maintenance worker become a supervisor? Can this receptionist become an account coordinator? Dress for the posi-tion you aspire to. Q Manners matter: S uc cessful job fair applicants are generally conserva-tive when interacting with hiring per-sonnel. Never assume that Mr. Fred Johnson wants to be called Fred. Refer to him him as Mr. JohnsonŽ until he says otherwise. Q Link up: Link edIn, w hich was created for the business community, is an ideal online network for job hunters. Many companies are using LinkedIn to research and find candidates. Many successful job fair applicants connect with their recruiters on LinkedIn after their initial meeting. Q Paper rsums rule: M ost recruiters still would prefer a traditional paper rsum they can read on the spot. Bring plenty of one-page, concise and infor-mative rsums in a neat briefcase or portfolio. The Bad Q How much does it pay? Asking about salary and benefits immediately is a turnoff to recruiters. Think of a job fair as a way to market yourself to employers to get an interview. Few recruiters will want to move forward with an applicant whose initial ques-tions revolve around salary, benefits and vacation day allotment. Q Failure to differentiate: An applicant w ho arrives at the job fair with no advance information on what compa-nies will be on-site and who they want to impress, runs the risk of waiting in endless lines to talk to recruiters at companies that arent the right fit. By failing to do advance research, time is wasted for both the applicant and the recruiter. Q Rsum typos: I t is important t o proofread a rsum for typos and misspellings, which undermine an applicants ability to get interviews and secure a job. The rsum should be an error-free showcase of your experience, skills and capabilities. Q Cyber TMI: Social media aficionados run the risk of inf ormation overload. A Facebook page with post-ings about raucous nights or a Twitter account detailing compromising infor-mation can be a liability. However, a professional, updated LinkedIn profile is always a plus to human resource pro-fessionals.The Bad Q Gum chewing: A gum-chewing applicant might be a cigarette smok-er trying to cover his or her tracks. Regardless, there is no place for gum chewing or food consumption on the job search circuit. Q Hygiene matters: M eeting with r ecruiters is not the time to forget to brush your teeth, take a shower, or groom your nails. Enough said. Q Employment stalker: Some applicants f ail t o recognize the social cues that the interview is over. They linger, or return to the recruiter again and again during the fair. Or they send daily emails to the recruiter asking for prog-ress reports. While follow-up is appro-priate, harassment is not. Follow up with recruiters youve made connection with at the job fair. Assemble accumulated business cards and link up to them on LinkedIn. Recruiters appreciate receiving a thank you e-mail, which signals interest in contributing to the organization. Applicants need to develop a system of information on all potential job leads just as recruiters have to keep track of multiple applicants.

A20 BUSINESS WEEK OF MAY 10-16, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLY Furniture has been made from carved and joined pieces of wood for centuries, but in every century there are a few designers who are intrigued by the forms of nature and use them to create furni-ture. Chairs made of curved horns are one of these furniture forms. During the 19th century, horn chairs were made in many countries, perhaps because curved cow horns or strangely shaped antlers reminded some furniture makers of the curved and carved furniture popular during Victorian times. In the United States, most of these chairs were made in the Western states. It was possible to buy quantities of Texas longhorn horns at slaughterhouses in meat-packing cities. The horns were joined together to make a back, arms, legs and part of the upholstered seat. It took at least 12 horns to assemble a simple chair and almost 30 for a compli-cated chair. The horns had to be polished by hand. In other locations, furniture makers used antlers from local antelope, moose or elk. The chairs made in the West were large, Victorian in style and composed of many horns. Horn chairs from Europe, particularly Germany, were made to resemble traditional 19th-centu-ry chairs and included light-colored ant-lers with protruding points. Seats were upholstered with leather. All horn chairs are now described as in the rustic taste.Ž There are a few firms making horn chairs today. Q: I have several pieces of old LenoxŽ china. Some are marked with a blue Lenox L-in-wreathŽ logo, others with a brown or green logo. Did the company use marks of different colors during dif-ferent years? A: Walter Scott Lenox took control of the Ceramic Art Co. of Trenton, N.J., in the mid 1890s and changed the companys name to Lenox Inc. in 1906. Thats the year Lenox started using the L-in-wreath mark. Between 1906 and 1930, Lenox usually used a green wreath mark. But during the same time period, unfor-tunately, it also used wreath marks that were blue, red, black or gold. The gold wreath became Lenoxs standard mark in the early 1950s. Q: We paid $2 for an 8-inch Wagner skillet at an auction. The molded words on the bottom are not like the wording on our other Wagner cookware. Our other Wagner pieces are marked Wag-ner Ware, Sidney.Ž This one, in a different style of lettering, reads Wagners 1891 Original Cast Iron Cookware.Ž Under that, theres a list of Seasoning Instruc-tions.Ž What can you tell us? A: Your skillet was made in the early 1990s by General Housewares Corp. of Terre Haute, Ind., to promote Wagners 100th anniversary. Wagner Manufactur-ing Co. was founded in Sidney, Ohio, in 1891. Wagner became a division of the Randall Co. of Cincinnati in the early 1950s, and in 1959 Randall was acquired by Textron Inc. of Providence, R.I. Ten years later, Textron sold Wagner to Gen-eral Housewares, which sold the Wagner factory in 1997. The factory closed in 1999, just a few years after making anniversary wares like your skillet. If you paid only $2 for it, you did all right. We have seen Wagner anniversary skillets selling for $10 to $20. Q: I own close to 900 vinyl jazz records from the 1950s through the 1980s. Where can I sell them? The artists include Stan Kenton, Stan Getz, Count Basie, Phil Woods, Charlie Parker, Dave Brubeck and Paul Des-mond. Many of the records have never been released on CD. A: Vinyl records are tricky to sell. Most sell for very little. But some records, including some jazz records, sell for a lot. Do some research before you try selling. Visit a vintage record shop in your area and talk to the owner or knowledgeable salespeople. You also can consult collectors via the International Association of Jazz Record Collectors,, which publishes a journal for collectors. Another publica-tion for record collectors is Goldmine ( Do some compari-son shopping online, then contact stores and collectors in your area or online. Tip: Be careful about washing good crystal glasses in the dishwasher. The heat could crack them, especially glasses with cut decorations.

There was a beautiful, custom estate built in the early 1990s situated on one acre of land. With more than 7,000 square feet in the main house and an additional 2,000 square feet in a guesthouse, it was a magnificent design that overlooked an amazing architecturally enhanced back-yard with fountains, a zero entry pool, pergola areas, outdoor fireplace, TVs, full summer kitchen and several enter-taining spaces. It allowed enough space to entertain at least 200 guests outdoors within the privacy of your own prop-erty. The other two acres, which were adjacent to the home, could be subdi-vided or remain with the estate. Because the home was built in the 1990s, it was lacking the new Crestron system or some type of Smart Home system installed today in larger homes. With the touch of a butt on, these systems turn on lights, security and music throughout the home; most of them can even work from your iPhone no matter where you are in the world. Each time I had a showing, I had to arrive about an hour before the show-ing to make sure I had the time to turn all the lights on, unlock doors, turn on the sound system, make sure all the fountains were in order and inspect the home. I received a call from a well-known broker in the area wanting to show his clients the home. He told me that the most important factor to this client was that they could sell the additional par-cel of land next to the home. This made me very excited because I had the only listing of this type in the area. The day of the showing, I barely made it in time to turn on all the lights and make sure everything was working properly. I had a client earlier in the day and we ran behind schedule, which pushed back my entire day. I had to reschedule our last showing of the day to drive out and meet the broker, but I was fairly confident that this would be the right client for the property. I was finishing turning on the music in the home when the broker arrived with his clients. We greeted, and I began to explain the history of the home and the uniqueness of the SELLABLE 2-acre parcel of land next to the home. As I was in the midst of describing the home, the client walked directly to the rear of the living room, looked outside and said to the broker You told me this land was SAILABLE.Ž The broker replied: It is SELLABLE. It is the only parcel in the area of its kind. What is the problem?Ž The client said: There is no boat. Where am I supposed to SAIL? Where am I supposed to dock my boat? On the grass?!Ž Needless to say, it took everything in me to remain calm and pleasant, while I was trying to imagine how in the world the broker did not realize that his cli-ent wanted waterfront property! I was fuming mad! The client wanted a waterfront property where he could put his sailboat, and the broker thought he wanted a parcel of land to sell! I called the broker after they left the home. I was still angry and couldnt believe I left another potential client, drove 40 minutes out of my way, turned on all the lights, music and now had to drive 40 minutes back after doing the same thing all over again. Did this really just happen? How could you not realize your client want-ed waterfront property? Even worse, I had to go back and tell the owners of the property that the buy-ers really were not buyers. Additional pressure I did not need with the listing expiring soon. A few days later, I received another call from the same broker. He wanted to show the property to another cli-ent who was referred to him from the client we showed previously. I was shocked, to say the least! I couldnt believe that after that major mistake, the client would actually refer someone else to him. I was hesitant and still angry that this had happened „ yet I remained opti-mistic and went back out to the home. Turned on the lights, music, opened the doors on this perfect Florida day and pulled everything together in plenty of time. The clients walked into the house, took a walk through the living room to the back yard. They looked at one another, smiled and said: I am so glad our neighbors told us about this home after they saw it. They may be looking for water, but we are looking for privacy and plenty of space to entertain.Ž Suddenly, my remaining anger quickly turned to true optimism, and I knew this was the right couple for the proper-ty. As it turns out, the clients looking for the SAILABLEŽ property, went home and told their neighbors what a terrible experience they had looking at a beauti-ful home in the middle of nowhere. The neighbors were ecstatic over this news because it was exactly what they had in mind. They flew down from the North-east specifically to see this home. If you happen to be wondering what became of the clients looking for a SAILABLEŽ property, they are still searching, but I am sure they will soon find their dream property as well. For now, their sailboat is safe at their pri-mary residence up North, and they are looking forward to moving the boat here when the right property comes along.

B2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MAY 10-16, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLY SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSTurning an artist date into a real dateA few years ago, a good friend introduced me to Julia Cameron's T he Artists Way,Ž a New Age-y, pop-psychology guide to tapping into our creative spirit. Some of it I buy; some of it I dont. Which is perhaps why I gave away my copy a couple of years ago. But the funny thing about the information we need is that it circulates back into our lives. I keep coming across The Artist's WayŽ in the strangest places, and after the last run-in, I decided to take some of Ms. Cameron's advice. One of her pillars for unleashing our creative potential is regular artist dates,Ž mind-expanding expeditions meant to awaken our senses and help us recon-nect with our inner child. (I know „ all thats missing are a lava lamp and rolling papers. But bear with me.) These outings are taken solo, so no one can distract us from our creative explora-tions. Ms. Cameron suggests visiting museums or browsing farmers markets or exploring bookstores. She says we can take a walk on the beach or collect leaves in the park „ anything so long as it push-es us out of our routine. For my part, Ive given artist datesŽ a shot for the last three months. I like the alone time, and I like what I discover on my adventures. But it turns out my weekly expeditions might have an unanticipated romantic upside. My friend Mitch was the first to clue me in. When I told him where Id been spending my free time, he said hed been hitting up the same places „ to meet women. I always go by myself,Ž he said. I check out the art, I listen to the music, I watch the show „ whatevers going on.Ž And then?ŽAnd then I see an attractive woman, I go up to her, I ask her something about the exhibit „ and the next thing you know, Im getting her number.Ž I had to laugh. All that time Id been expanding my mind on my artist dates,Ž men were cruising for real dates. In Calling in the One: 7 Weeks to Attract the Love of Your Life,Ž author and psychologist Katherine Woodward Thomas tells the story of her friend Dean-na, a lovely and bright woman who com-plained she wasnt meeting any men. (Deanna) has this idealistic notion that she should meet someone naturally while going about her day-to-day life,Ž Mrs. Woodward Thomas writes. From her perspective. trying to meet someone felt too contrived.Ž But eventually Deanna consented to attend a singles event and was pleasantly surprised by the bachelor s she met there. Afterward, she even put her profile online. This, Mrs. Woodward Thomas says in her book, is how you go about meeting a partner. Not by hoping hell magically appear, at the dry-cleaners, in the market, at a traffic light.Ž But by going where other people go to find romance; by making yourself available. Love comes to us in many ways,Ž she writes. We have no idea, really, how or when it will come.Ž Perhaps, then, it might come at the museum, at the bookstore or at the con-cert. Wherever we take time to open up, to explore and, most importantly „ to try something new. Q artis

It features an exceptional defensive play by West, who laid a clever trap for declarer and then had the satisfaction of watching him fall right into it. After bidding all four suits at the one-level, North-South arrived at three notrump. West decided that the best hope to defeat the contract was to find his partner with strength behind dum-my's spades. So he led the spade ten, which declarer ducked to East's queen. East then shifted to a low club, taken by dummy's queen. South had eight tricks „ a spade, four diamonds and three clubs „ and con-cluded that the best chance for a ninth lay in developing a heart trick. So at trick three, he led the ten of hearts from dummy, on which East played the three and South the five. But instead of taking the trick with the jack, West followed smoothly with the deuce! This apparent stroke of good fortune had the desired effect on South. Convinced that East must have the jack of hearts, declarer led another heart toward his Q-9-8 in an attempt to score an overtrick. The second heart lead met with a cordial reception from West, who proceed-ed to cash four heart tricks for down one. His brilliant duck of the first heart trick had lured a greedy South down the road to disaster. Of course, declarer could have romped home with nine tricks after the ten of hearts held. But how many play-ers would be able to resist the tempta-tion to try for an extra trick once the heart jack was "proven" to be with East? As for West, had he taken the first heart trick, South could not have been stopped from making the contract. Q

We ve been able to build our audience in Palm Beach.Ž The Colony has presented such performers of a certain age as Marilyn Maye and Chita Rivera. What appeal does it hold for the Nunziatas? The room is so intimate and the hotel is gorgeous. You can be up in your hotel room, then take the elevator and be in your venue,Ž Mr. Nunziata says. But they are not the only artists fans will be eager to see again. Also returning are Jennifer Sheehan, Wayne Hosford and Ariana Savalas. And in the middle, two artists are making Royal Room debuts.

FLORIDA WRITERSSuper-flu clears the decks for a new world orderQ ViralŽ by James Lilliefors. Soho Press. 353 pages. $25. This elegantly complex thriller is devastating in its premise and aston-ishing in its meticulous plotting. James Lilliefors asks us to imagine something almost inconceivable: altruistic biologi-cal genocide. A multi-billion-dollar scheme is afoot to depopulateŽ failed African nations, obtain land rights and construct technologi-cal meccas „ models of economic and social stability. I ts a scheme at once horrifying and bril-liant, designed to antici-pate and squelch any challenge to its success. Of course, its cloaked in secrecy. And maybe its not so altruistic after all. The means involve the controlled release of a fast-acting virus in selected population centers and the overnight burial of the millions of deceased. There would be little to witness. Those behind it have thoroughly thought through damage control for the flu-like epidemic that comes and goes in hours. Brilliant planners and with almost unlimited resources and unparalleled surveillance systems, they plot to limit the information that reaches the public about what theyre up to. But journal-ist Jon Mallory, fed information by his brother Charles, is making waves with what he manages to get into print. Charles, who heads a private intelligence firm with a handful of skilled specialists, is determined to thwart this scheme. He presses to find out who is involved, how they communicate, where they are and what technologies and cadres of workers they have set in motion. Most importantly, he determines the time, location and method of the viruss release „ and how to stop it from happening. Charles is following up on some suspicions hinted at by his late father, whose plan of action included bringing Jons investigative and writing skills to bear. The Mal-lory men are a strange bunch, with relationships that are strained yet respectful. One of the novels fascinations is seeing the process by which the brothers c ollude at a distance that is both tactically necessary and true to the nature of their distinctive, con-trasting personalities. Mr. Lilliefors enhances our curiosity about each by alternating which brother is a chapters central consciousness. While we are waiting for them to undermine the grand scheme, we are also waiting for them to move closer together. Suspense builds as each mans isolated storyline is interrupted at a crucial juncture, held in abeyance until the other brothers storyline is developed further, and then con-tinued. Theres always some piece of knowledge just out of reach that, once obtained, only raises a new question. The author manages a large cast of subordinate characters „ heroes, villains and ambiguous „ with enormous skill. He maneuvers them, the pieces of an elaborate life-and-death game, with a sure mastery of the board. Another strength in ViralŽ is the authors handling of place. Whether painting the neighborhoods and outlying areas of Washington, D.C.; the cities, vil-lages and countryside of African nations; or a handful of European locales, Mr. Lil-liefors puts us there with authority. ViralŽ raises important questions about population growth, food supply, the limits of government, the limitless-ness of ambition and the control and uses of science and technology. I marvel at Mr. Lilliefors ability to make all kinds of scientific and strategic information accessible as he pushes ahead with his only-too-credible premise. More impor-tant, perhaps, are the ways in which he confronts moral issues and the com-plex shadings of personal and collective motivation. Its a great, multi-faceted read. Q u s t a i b w phil JASON O The reviewer recallsmeeting the authorI’m at the Philharmonic Center for the Arts, waiting for Debbie Reynolds to perform a few days short of her 80th birthday. In my hands is that trusty publication called “The Phil,” edited (and largely written) by master scribe James Lil-liefors. An interview with Ms. Reynolds. Another with Spanish artist Juan Genovs. How long has Mr. Lilliefors been doing this? How has he kept his mind sharp enough to craft his Grade A-plus thriller? I’m thinking back six years to our rst meeting. Jim allowed me to inter-view him about his highly entertaining “America’s Boardwalks” for a “Book Beat” column I was writing for a now-vanished weekly publication. He told me about his career as a newspaper journalist and editor and about two earlier books — a novel called “Bananaville” that had received some good reviews, and a book about a bit of American culture called “Highway 50: Ain’t That America.” For all his accomplish-ments, I could tell that he had genuine talent and ambition. I thought about that talent and ambition in July 2009 while preparing a review of Jim’s “Ball Cap Nation,” my rst review for Florida Weekly. Would Jim nd the time and creative space to channel and release that gift? I don’t know how he did it, but I can guess why his previous titles don’t appear in the public-ity for “Viral.” It’s as if Mr. Lilliefors just popped up out of nowhere, brand new on the scene. That’s one kind of hype that launches a book. But Jim Lilliefors is not brand new. He is a mature, patient and masterful writer. And now, with a contract for the follow-up to “Viral” (due out next spring), he has nally been able to make the decision to leave the Phil and focus full time on book writing. I wish him well, and I can’t wait to read what’s next. — Phil Jason


FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 10-16, 2012 B13 PUZZLE ANSWERS The musical PippinŽ hits the stage at Maltz Jupiter Theatre on May 18-19, per-formed by students from the Theatre s Paul and Sandra Goldner Conservatory of Performing Arts. PippinŽ tells the story of the young prince Pippin and his quest for the secrets of true hap-piness and fulfill-ment. He seeks it in the glories of the battlefield, in temptation and the intrigues of political power „ but in the end, he finds it in the simple pleasures of home and family. Each of us knows what it feels like to search for meaning „ to search for who we are „ and we particularly experience this feeling during adoles-cence,Ž said Julie R owe, the conservatorys director of education, in a pre-pared statement. Its been wonderful to explore this particular story with our conservatory students.Ž Pippin is a hip, tongue-in-cheek fairy tale that captivated Broadway audiences in the 1970s and continues to appeal to the young at heartŽ everywhere. The energetic, pop-influenced score by Oscar-winning composer and lyricist Stephen Schwartz (Godspell,Ž Chil-dren of Eden,Ž Disneys Pocahontas,Ž The Hunchback of Notre DameŽ and The Prince of EgyptŽ) bursts with one show-stopping number after another, including the hits Magic To Do,Ž Cor-ner of the SkyŽ and Extraordinary.Ž The production features a cast of 54 students ages 7-18, and Bob Fosse jazz choreography. Pippins journey is about being true to who we really are, listening to our hearts and not succumbing to peer pressure. To top it off, our students have been learning the renowned choreog-raphy of Tony Award-winning choreogra-pher Bob Fosse,Ž Ms. Rowe said. What better cast to tell this story than our won-derful conservatory students?Ž PippinŽ is directed by conserva-tory instructors and Broadway veter-ans Anna McNeely and Brian Andrews. Assisting are acting coach Lea Roy and vocal coach Sarah-Helen Land. The shows are at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for Pip-pinŽ are $20 for adults, $15 for children. To purchase tickets, call the box office at 575-2223. The Theatres Paul and Sandra Goldner Conservatory of Performing Arts offers a challenging, innovative and quality theatre experience to students of all ages and abilities. In addition to a full schedule of classes, the conserva-torys workshops and master classes offer students an opportunity to learn firsthand about the world of theater from nationally known composers and performers, agents and local instruc-tors.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 10-16, 2012 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B19 jim While wine lovers are willing to wait years for their favorite bottles to reach per-fection, when it comes to information about those wines, we want it now.Wine Spectator and Wine Advocate magazines remain reliable sources, as do local wine shops. But for faster-than-the-speed-of-light info, nothing beats cyber-space. Twitter, Facebook and email lists provide instant information from wineries and with fellow wine lovers. For general wine information, sign up for emails from the British publication, Decanter Magazine, as well as Wine Spectator and s wine list. Decanter Magazine covers wines from around the world but with more of a focus on European, Austra-lian and South African wines, probably due to its proximity and the lack of a large domestic wine business. Wine Spectator is well known for insightful arti-cles and business trends as well as voluminous reviews, while is an email service that updates twice daily with interest-ing tidbits about wines. Sign up with your favorite wineries for email notifications about upcoming events and new releases. Join a winerys wine club and youll likely receive offers not available to the general public. Recently, for example, Krupp Brothers in Califor-nia released a syrah with three years ageing in spe-cial French oak casks, avail-able only to their wine club members. There are some wineries that only sell online to their club members, and there can be quite a wait just to get on the list to purchase from Screaming Eagle or Harlan Estate. Facebook is another way to stay connected. LikeŽ your favorite wineries and get updates through Facebook and connect with others who enjoy the same wines you do. This is a good way to find local events involving wines you like. If you havent used Twitter, signing up is free. There is a very diverse Twitter-universe out there, and if you sign up to lots of accounts you might drown in the flood of tweets every day. If you search wine on Twitter you will find thousands of opportunities to get the latest wine-blurb, ranging from main-stream to unusual. Who knew there is an English Wine Producers tweet? It seems every region, country and mass retailer has their own tweets, and some are extremely prolific. Wines of Argentina, Wine Australia, Oregon Wine and Total Wine show up every day multiple times on my Twitter feed, featuring tips, tasting notes, events and news. Search for your own favorites.Stay connected to your favorite wines VINOOr maybe you just want the latest and best deal. There are two sites I recent-ly joined that showcase wines in limited quantities but great prices. WTSO „ WineTilSoldOut „ is the online site for a south New Jersey retailer that features great prices for small lots. Most selections require a threeor four-bottle purchase and include free shipping. Last Call Wines, another New Jersey retail-er, also sends out daily updates and lists its available inventory. Be prepared for multiple daily updates, as they sell through their inventory and replace it with new options. Recent offerings include Dog Point NZ Chardonnay, Mer Soleil Chardonnay and Freemark Abbey Bosche Estate Cabernet Sauvignon. These are all gone now, but the pipelines are full of selections from around the world. Staying connected digitally is an effortless way to stay connected to your wine favorites. The hardest part is limiting your-self so you dont get overloaded with Face-book updates and tweets. Interesting tweets to help stay connected: @jancisrobinson „ For a distinctively British connection I enjoy Jancis Robinson, the well known wine authority and wine writer for the Financial Times of London. She has her ear to the ground and links her tweets back to her web site for in depth appraisals of wine topics around the world. Recent articles have covered topics rang-ing from the Bordeaux 2011 vintage, a fine article about wine fraud involving big name French wines, and a comparison of restau-rants of Languedoc versus Catalunya. @wine594 „ I just like this one because it covers events around the continent, and some of the tweets and articles are not picked up by other tweets or news agen-cies. Who knew there was a Portuguese Water Dog named Rafa that is helping raise $10,000 for the local humane society in Edmonton Alberta? His owner runs a wine shop and sells a Sonoma County Red 2007 for fundraising with Rafas picture on the label. @RandallGrahm „ The quixotic winemaker of Bonny Doon Vineyard is one of the original Rhone Rangers in California. Look up Rhone Rangers (wineries using rhone grapes) in Wikipedia and it shows his picture. Interesting, deep and extremely prolific, he covers 30 topics a day, or more. Be warned that you will receive a lot of tweets here, but some are very insightful. One recent tweet about the restaurant at his winery reveals Incumbent upon me 2 work at least a few nights a week @Cig-areVolantBDV as a sommelier. Ive bought these strange wines, I need to sell them.Ž Q
