WHY DOOR TO BALLOON TIME MATTERS DURING A HEART ATTACK. 561.625.5070THE HEART ATTACK RISK ASSESSMENT ITS FREE.ITS PRICELESS.pbgmc.com/heartscreenings Door to balloon time measures the time it takes for a hospital to get a heart attack patient from its ER to its cath lab to open blocked arteries.

A4 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 5-11, 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly OPINIONArizona’s victory amy GOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly Big money wins in the big skies of MontanaI never bought a man who wasnt for sale,Ž William A. Clark reportedly said. He was one of Montanas Copper Kings,Ž a man who used his vast wealth to manipulate the state government and literally buy votes to make himself a U.S. senator. That was more than 100 years ago, and the blatant corruption of Clark and the other Copper Kings created a furor that led to the passage, by citizen initiative, of Montanas Corrupt Practic-es Act in 1912. The century of transpar-ent campaign-finance restrictions that followed, preventing corporate money from influencing elections, came to an end this week, as the U.S. Supreme Court summarily reversed the Montana law. Five justices of the U.S Supreme Court reiterated: Their controversial Citizens United ruling remains the law of the land. Clarks corruption contributed to the passage of the 17th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Now, close to 100 years later, it may take a popular move-ment to amend the Constitution again, this time to overturn Citizens United and confirm, finally and legally, that cor-porations are not people. Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission is the case in which the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that corporations can contribute unlimited amounts of funds toward what are deemed inde-pendent expendituresŽ in our elections. Thus, corporations, or shadowy super PACSŽ that they choose to fund, can spend as much as they care to on nega-tive campaign ads, just as long as they dont coordinate with a candidates campaign committee. That 2010 ruling, approved by a narrow 5-4 majority of the court, has profoundly altered the electoral landscape „ not only for the presi-dential election, but also for thousands of races around the country. According to a summary of the rulings impact, prepared by the National Conference of State Legislatures, While the ruling does not directly affect state laws, there are 24 states that currently prohibit or restrict corporate and/or union spend-ing on candidate elections.Ž Montana, with its long history of banning corporate contributions, was alone among the states to defy those five U.S. Supreme Court justices. Twenty-two states and the District of Columbia filed a brief in support of Montana, noting that state elections are different. Their supporting brief read, States „ par-ticularly resource-rich states with small populations, like Montana „ face the risk that nonresident corporations with discrete and well-defined interests will dominate campaign spending in state and local election contests.Ž Montana is not known for bipartisanship these days. Democratic Gov. Brian Schweitzer says his veto pen has run out of ink from the number of crazyŽ Repub-lican bills that he has had to veto since taking office. Lacking ink, he now takes bills from the Republican-controlled leg-islature onto the Capitol steps and embla-zons them with a red-hot branding iron that says Veto.Ž So it was significant that, after the Supreme Court decision this week, Schweitzer and his lieutenant governor, John Bohlinger, a Republican, stood together before the Capitol. Bohlinger said, Now, Republicans and Democrats dont always agree on policy matters, but theres one thing we do agree on, and that is, corporate money should not influence the o utcome of an election.Ž To which Schweitzer added: Here in Montana, we have a proud, 100-year history of keeping corporate money out of our elections. Corpora-tions arent people, and they should not control our government. Montana stood up for democracy, here at home and on behalf of America, by fighting to keep our ban on corporate campaign spend-ing. The United States Supreme Court blocked our state law because they said corporations are people. Ill believe that when Texas executes one.Ž John Bonifaz is co-founder and director of Free Speech for People, one of a coalition of groups organizing for a con-stitutional amendment that specifies that People, person, or persons as used in this Constitution does not include corpora-tions, limited liability companies or other corporate entities.Ž He told me: Weve seen a growing mobilization across the country of people calling for an amend-ment to reclaim our democracy. Four states are now on record „ Hawaii, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Mexico „ calling for an amendment. Other states are likely to join that fight soon. Montana [has a] statewide ballot in November for an amendment. Hundreds of municipali-ties across the country have called for an amendment. Over a thousand business leaders have joined that call. And now there are some dozen amendment bills pending in the United States Congress calling for an amendment, with hearings to be held before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee this July.Ž Perhaps the only silver lining in the Supreme Courts decision to send Mon-tana back to the age of the Copper Kings is that a mass movement is building to assert the rights of people over the power of money in politics. Q „ Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column. „ Amy Goodman is the host of Democracy Now!,Ž a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 1,000 stations in North America. She is the author of Breaking the Sound Barrier.Ž Upon its passage, Arizonas immigration law was considered so outland-ish that Attorney General Eric Holder famously rushed to condemn it without reading it. Now the Supreme Court has read the law and rejected Holders case against its central element, the so-called show me your papersŽ provision stipulating that police officers should check on the immigration status of people suspected of being in the country illegally. If it were possible for a statute to be tarred, feathered and run out of town on a rail, such would have been the fate of Arizonas law. President Barack Obama inveighed against it. The state was boycotted. Otherwise reasonable people lost their heads. Whether the law was deemed racist, fascist or merely ill-advised, it was an article of faith that it was very, very unconstitutional. When it got to the court, though, it wasnt even a close call. All eight jus-tices ruling in the case „ Justice Elena Kagan recused herself „ turned aside the Justice Departments pre-emptive challenge to the provisions consti-tutionality. In a divided decision, the court struck down three other provi-sions on grounds that they interfere with the federal immigration system. If Arizona cant claim total victory, it can claim vindication vis-a-vis all its hys-terical critics. What the Arizona-haters always ignored is that there are show me your papersŽ provisions in the federal law. As Justice Anthony Kennedy recounts in his opinion for the majority, the fed-eral government requires that aliens carry proof of registration. An extensive apparatus exists to facilitate state and local enforcement of the immigration laws. Congress has said that no special training or formal agreement is neces-sary for state officers to communicate with the (federal government) regard-ing the immigration status of any indi-vidual, including reporting knowledge that a particular alien is not lawfully present in the United States.Ž If the feds didnt want to get any inquiries from police officers in Ari-zona, they should have written that loophole into the law. Certainly, Arizo-nas statute is more in keeping with the spirit of federal immigration laws than the Obama administrations selective enforcement with an eye to doing just enough to cover itself politically. It is bizarre that, with millions of people in the country in defiance of federal laws, the man charged with faithfully execut-ing them is worried that Arizona police will do too much to assist the federal government by turning up illegal immi-grants in the course of their work. In his scorching dissent from the decision overturning portions of the Arizona statute, Justice Antonin Scalia emphasizes federal non-enforcement of the immigration laws. The Obama administrations real beef with Arizona isnt that it contradicts federal law so much as it contradicts its own choice to ignore federal law as much as practical. Arizona, Scalia notes, has been particularly hard hit by the federal govern-ments decision to enforce at the bor-der primarily in California and Texas: Must Arizonas ability to protect its borders yield to the reality that Con-gress has provided inadequate funding for federal enforcement „ or, even worse, to the Executives unwise target-ing of that funding?Ž Arizona had the temerity to answer no.Ž Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.

WHY DO I HEARƒ BUT NOT UNDERSTAND? Study by Cambridge University in England Reveals Key Answer Until recently, there was no practical way to identify dead regions of hearing cells in the ear. However, a new British-developed procedure using standard test equipment now allows for identi“ -cation of dead hearing cell regions. The study suggests that the presence or absence of dead regions may have serious implica-tions in the “ tting of hearing aids.This research reveals that amplifying dead cells is a mistake which will result in poorer speech understanding in noise. A new type of digital programmable microcircuit is now available using nanoScience technology that can be programmed to bypass the dead cells. As a result, the patients usable hearing cells receive ampli“ cation, thereby improving speech understanding in noise.We are employing a like method in our diagnostic sound booths using a sound “ eld speech in noise procedure,Ž said Dr. Mel Grant of Audiology & Speech Pathology. This test simulates hearing in a noisy crowd. We are able to determine maximum speech understanding by frequency shaping this new hearing aid.ŽThe results have been phenomenal. For the “ rst time, a patient is able to actually realize the exact percentage of speech under-standing improvement in noisy listening environments.

Hail the tennis ballDogs still go crazy for a toy never meant for them BY DR. MARTY BECKERUniversal UclickIf theres anything more versatile than a tennis ball, I cant imagine it. One afternoon, I just sat down with a pad and started jotting down all the things you can do with a dog and a tennis ball. Heres what I came up with: 1. Fetch. Toss, return, repeat. You know the drill. This is the game by which all dog activi-ties are measured, and sometimes theres just nothing better than the classic. 2. Find. Hide the tennis ball, then let your dog find it. For dogs who are already retriev-ers, this game is remarkably easy to learn. Hide the ball in plain sight a couple times so shell know what you want her to do, then watch how easily she can find it anywhere. 3. Herd. Fetching uses one ball, but if youve got a herding dog, try tossing out a few and giving your dog a place to gather them all together. Since this game works with your dogs natural instincts, most pick it up very quickly for a treat reward. 4. Get wet. Water dogs love nothing more than the chance to go after a favorite ball and get wet. What more could a pup want? 5. Monkey in the middle. Got kids? Got a dog? Amuse everyone with the classic school-yard game with the dog playing the monkey. Pass the ball by tossing, rolling, kicking „ whatever works, and give Rover a small treat each time he intercepts it and gives it back. 6. Flyball. This one is a real sport, and one that tennis ball-loving dogs live for once they learn to play. Add a series of jumps to a tennis ball, and youve got a fast-paced, wildly entertaining game for both people and pets, participants and spectators. Tennis balls are even better because you can often get them for free. If you have friends who are tennis players, ask them to save their old balls for you. A tennis ball that hasnt the oomphŽ for a good game of tennis is still per-fect for playing fetch with your dog. One important thing to know, though: Tennis balls are not chew toys. Put them away when youre done with your game of fetch. Dogs have been known to compress tennis balls in their mouths, and then die when the ball springs back to full size in the back of the mouth, cutting off the air supply. And even if that never happens, the materials in a tennis ball are designed for ... tennis! Theyre not made to be chewed on or swallowed by dogs.So have your fun, and lots of it. But dont leave the ball with your dog when youre done. And now, if youll excuse me, I have to throw a tennis ball for our fam-ilys dogs!

A8 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 5-11, 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY$3.85 million from the National Institutes of Health to develop a new generation of broad-spectrum anti-cancer therapeutics, including breast cancer and lymphoma. May 14, 2012: Scientists from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Insti-tute have been awarded an $8.4 million grant from the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health to develop new compounds to help pre-vent relapse in smokers who are kicking the habit. The no-smoking grant alluded to in that fourth grant announcement is Paul Kennys. Hes the program director and principal investigator for the five-year study, which aims to short-circuit nicotine addiction with a nicotine-like molecule. Its an exciting pursuit, this fighting-fire-with-faux-fire approach, and one that Mr. Kenny would love to discuss at length but this late-May morning is not ideal. He has a presentation to make at 3:30 in the after-noon, one with a potential $50 million attached to it. Oh, and then theres this: To top it all off, my wife is about to give birth,Ž he says, and smiles. Any day now.Ž He strides, quickly, across Scripps lushly landscaped Jupiter campus from Building B to Building A and his office, apologizing for the time constraint. This afternoons presentation involves the National Institute of Drug Abuse and the development of a public-private devel-oper project, a PDP: a not-for-profit orga-nization „ an actual company „ the mission of which would be conquering nicotine addiction. I have to prepare an overview of how we would run this program if were the ones selected to administer it,Ž he says, lifting a laptop cover, clicking through a series of slides that support his proposal. Which compounds we would go after, how we would fill our pipeline, how we would interact with other people who would be interested in doing this, the American Cancer Society, smoking orga-nizations, how we would liaise with them, how we would administer this massive budget, although its a drop in the ocean. We have to convince them we know what were doing, that well do a better job than our competitors, who are very well-qualified, too.Ž Competition was fierce, but its down to the final two now and good sportsman-ship dictates that Mr. Kenny not cite the rival research lab. Scientists here write their own grant proposals. Every word, every word,Ž he says. Heres one. Each ones like a book, you know?Ž With his thumb, he fans an inch-thick stack of neatly typed pages, the proposal for the no-more-smoking research. Im down to around one (pro-posal) a year, and it tends to be for renew-als. They tend to come in five-year blocks. Typically, they want to make sure if a pro-grams going to be successful, you want to commit for at least 10 years. So its a good idea. And were constantly looking for the next one.Ž There has been no dearth of next ones. Since its inception in 2004, Scripps Flori-da has received about $241 million in fed-eral grants, according to the 2011 Scripps Florida Funding Corporation annual report, the most recent one available. As a non-profit research organization, Scripps Florida „ like its counterpart in La Jolla, Calif. „ relies on grants and donations to sustain it. Its success in attracting grants, which go a long way in attracting donations, is based on the quality of the people, plus the infrastruc-ture here and the vision of this place, the integration of biology and chemistry and technology,Ž says Patrick Griffin, director of Transitional Research, the translating of scientific research into practical application. As a non-profit research organization, we rely on grants,Ž says Mr. Griffin. We hire faculty who have distinguished careers. We, as an institute, have a track record of success and attracting peo-ple with excellent reputations and good grantsmanship.Ž Applying for grants is part of the job here, and each submission undergoes stringent review by the funding organi-zation. Peer review is based on innova-tion, the quality of investigation and the ability to carry it out,Ž says Mr. Griffin, who received his Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of Virginia. Reputation counts, and thats based on past success. In science, its all about what youve done. The only measure for predicting future success is past success.Ž Instant gratification is not part of the process. Knowing whether ones grant won a thumbs-up or thumbs-down can take a while. Mr. Griffin applied for a cancer-research grant back in January, and its just now, in this last week of May, being reviewed; hell learn its score soon and know if it has a chance. He and Mr. Kenny could hear from the NIH as soon as August about his $50 million program project proposal. Thats actually pretty quick,Ž Mr. Griffin says. Youre dealing with the govern-ment, and the government usually doesnt move fast.Ž The current economic picture has added stress to the overall grant process, with many organizations competing for the same shrinking federal dollars. Weve all developed thick skins over the years,Ž Mr. Griffin says, referring to the times when a grant isnt granted. The model for sustainability is bringing in enough grant money to cover the cost of the institution. In addition to federal research grants, the institute relies on donor revenue, which took a big hit in recent years, but the hope is that it will come back strong soon.Ž An NIH Web site posting in February cited the $30.86 billion federal budget request for NIH for fiscal year 2013, the same overall level as fiscal year 2012: As described in the budget document,Ž it notes, we estimate that these funds will support 9,415 new and competing research project grants (RPGs) in fiscal year 2013, an increase of 672 above fiscal year 2012. In order to maximize resources in fiscal year 2013 for investigator-initiated grants, and to continue to focus on resources for young, first-time researchers, we propose to reduce non-competing RPGs by one percent from the fiscal year 2012 level, and to negotiate the budgets of compet-ing RPGs to avoid growth in the average award size (estimate of -1 percent) from fiscal year 2012. Also, we will no longer build in the inflationary increases that were included for planning purposes . .Ž So far, Scripps Florida continues to attract the grants that support it „ grants that go a long way toward attracting much-needed donor dollars. Were really reaping the rewards of all the farsighted work that went before us,Ž says Mr. Kenny, who did his undergradu-ate work at Dublins Trinity College and earned his Ph.D. in neuropsychopharma-cology at the University of London. Its crazy. Some very far-sighted focus: drug screening in academic study. Industry will focus on one given target area. I wouldnt say they ignore given areas, but unless its a major economic focus for them, they wont invest too much unless its a serendipitous finding, then theyll go SCRIPPSFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTOS Scientists from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute have been award-ed an $8.4 million grant from the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Insti-tutes of Health to develop new compounds to help prevent relapse in smokers who are trying to quit.

after it. The one were focused on now is tobacco dependence ... smoking and smoking-related diseases.Ž He ticks off the names of his colleagues on the study: Michael Cameron, Theo-dore Kamenecka and Patricia McDonald. If this works, it literally will save lives,Ž he says, his smile like a childs on Christ-mas morning. He is 39 but looks a dozen years younger. From a personal perspec-tive, its an amazing motivator. You could be the one who does this.Ž The science, the mechanism of addiction, fascinates him. For me, when you think about addiction, its a disease in itself,Ž he says. Your behavior ... you, as a person, change. You go from being probably a well-adjusted person, in control of yourself, to some-body whos lost control. Its this kind of conflict of the self. How can your brain be corrupted so that your behavior is not what you want it to be?Ž In a sense, Sathya Puthanveettils research asks the same question but in a far different form. In January, Mr. Puthan-veettil received a pair of grants „ one from the Alzheimers Drug Discovery Foundation, the other from the Whitehall Foundation, a Palm Beach-based organi-zation that assists scholarly research in the life sciences „ to study aspects of long-term memory. An assistant professor in the Department of Neuroscience, he earned his Ph.D. in biology from Washington State Univer-sity and a prize for innovative research ideas from The National Neurofibroma-tosis Foundation and International Neu-rofibromatosis Research Foundation. His long-term goal is no less impressive: to understand the molecular and cellular basis of memory storage and cognitive disorders. It is pure science, but it is more than that, too: the project seeks to develop therapeutics to treat Alzheimers. Look at the statistics, he suggests. Between 2000 and 2008, the number of breast-cancer-related deaths decreased by 3 percent, while the number of Alzheimers-related deaths increased by 66 percent. There is a personal connection, too. His grandmother suffers from Alzheimers. It robs you of the person,Ž he says. In the later stages, things become just a blur. She actually almost forgot me.Ž The personal also enters into Mr. Kennys research. Being Irish, everyone can think of someone who has dealt with alcoholism, alcohol abuse,Ž he says. Really, everyone has seen it. I didnt realize how the brain chemistry was involved. Its a disease, much like heart disease or cancer.Ž As for nicotine addiction, Nearly every family is impacted. At least 400,000, 450,000 people each year still die from smoking. Its a major cause of premature death, far more than any obesity or diabe-tes-related diseases.Ž The molecule is itself much like nicotine. Its nicotine-like, so its got nicotine properties, structurally it looks like nico-tine, and functionally it acts like nicotine, just not quite as powerful. So its some-thing like Methadone for smokers. Metha-done for heroin addicts, the prescription Chantix for smokers. Those type of maintenance therapies dont really work that well. So what were trying to do is to say, We know a ton about the circuitries in the brain to regu-late addiction. What we know is light-years ahead of where we are in terms of the compounds and drugs that are being made. Can we take the basic knowl-edge that weve accumulated, through the investments of the NIH over the past 23 years, and now begin to turn them into drugs? Ž That, of course, is now the 8.4-milliondollar question. Mr. Kenny traces his interest in addictive behavior back to his college years: I was very interested in basic brain chemis-try and behavior. During graduate school, doing my Ph.D., I worked on the role of nicotine receptors in behavior, the pro-tein in the brain thats targeted by nico-tine. Almost invariably youre interested in, well, heres a natural product thats made by plants that hits this brain protein and has all these behavioral effects that become addiction. How is this behavior occurring?Ž School „ a teacher, in particular „ influenced Mr. Puthanveettils career direction, as well. While I was in middle school, I was excited by science,Ž he says. At the time, there was no television in my village in India. But in the mornings, there used to be programs on the radio about scientists. Albert Einstein. Issac Newton. They ran an hour of talk about these great scientists. And I had a teacher who was very supportive of my interest.Ž Scripps Florida has assumed the support role for both Mr. Kenny and Mr. Puthanveettil. The only real demand we have,Ž Mr. Kenny says, is that you do the best sci-ence you possibly can.Ž Nothing is restricting you from working,Ž Mr. Puthanveettil says. The work carries no time restrictions either. Scientific research doesnt always adhere to a routine 9-to-5 workday. Mr. Puthanveettil smiles when he mentions his wife, Bindu Raveendra, a chemist at Scripps Florida. A mutual friend brought them together when Mr. Puthanveettil was working in New York at Columbia University. Sometimes, a common interest brings people together. We had a strong chem-istry,Ž he says, not intending the pun. Ms. Raveendra understands the work, the long hours it can demand, so that, as he says, Even if I come home at 2 oclock in the night, Im welcomed home.Ž The fuel for such research is grant money, and the fuel for grant money is ideas. The idea for Mr. Puthanveettils current work was in his mind for three, four, maybe six monthsŽ before he set it on paper. Once the grants were assured, he pulled in colleagues Peter Hodder (molecular therapeutics) and William Roush (chem-istry) for the necessary inter-disciplinary approach. The team will use a marine snail called Aplysia, favored in memory research because of its simple nervous system and extremely large neurons, the nerve cells that receive and send electrical signals throughout the body „ in this case, the brain. When Mr. Kenny talks about the ideas that translate into successful grants, he talks about discipline. If you chase too many ideas, you never make headway,Ž he says. The trick is to combine, really, the best ideas and chase after them quickly and very, very hard. Thats where success seems to come from, by being quick and being smart. If you can communicate well, you tend to do well.Ž Doing well means earning grants and the money that underlies the research. But the end game is never far from the scientists minds: treatment or cure or at least additional understanding, anoth-er step toward the eventual treatment or cure. The clinical trials that test the pills or the sprays or the ointments or whatever emerges, tend to be done else-where. And that is just fine at a non-profit research lab. Our goal is to improve human health, not to make money,Ž Mr. Griffin says.

As Morty kitchy-cooed and snuggled with Fluffy, Sheila became more and more incensed. This grown man was actually giggling and talking baby talk, calling their pooch Snookums.Ž Honestly, SNOOKUMS?!!! Give me a break! It bothered her to no end how he showered this animal with love and affection, and she couldnt catch his attention no matter how much she nagged. But underneath it all, Sheila had to admit she was more than a little jealous of the attention and love that Morty lavished on this creature. Lately, it seemed as if Morty didnt give her the time of day. So many of us scour the lonely-hearts columns or self-help books, looking for the Holy Grail on ways to jump-start the fire in our relationships. However, what we dont often realize is that theres a relationship guru living right under our noses who is all too eager to demonstrate the grand secrets of pas-sionate, all-consuming love. Its uncanny how our pets intuitively know the inner workings of a relation-ship built on unconditional love and mutual respect. They know how won-derful it is to come home at the end of a grueling day to a creature whose face lights up at our presence. We have no doubts that FidoŽ is thrilled to see us and, in fact, has been eagerly anticipat-ing our homecoming. No matter what Fido has been doing, he leaps up from his bone or nap and bounds to the door with enthusiasm. A very different reception, indeed, when compared to a partner who can barely look up from a computer screen or cant be bothered to give us a kiss hello. Our pets can sense when were having a bad day and cant do enough to let us know how much they would like to cheer us up. They nuzzle us to cuddle, and look into our eyes with genuine love and empathy, letting us know theyre in our corner 100 percent. And speaking of loyalty, we dont have to worry about this one, because theres never any doubt that Fido is on our team. Whats especially gratifying about our pets is that we can be ourselves at all times. We dont have to worry about looking stupid or embarrassing our-selves in front of Fido. Fido accepts us, warts and all, and would never look at us with disdain or contempt. We can confide our deepest secrets to this great listener (who doesnt judge us) and know that all confessions will be held in the strictest of confidence. Now obviously, Fido is not able to offer us advice or suggestions, but isnt it better when were encouraged to come up with our own answers? Now, lets talk about holding grudges. None of us like to be criticized. And Fido is no exception. If you reprimand him for misbehaving, he may avert his eyes and slink into a corner when hes first chastised. But he doesnt hold on to his bad mood for long. Hell be account-able for his misdeeds and move on. He doesnt carry a laundry list of gripes against you „ its not in his DNA. It wont take long for him to start wagging his tail again, enjoying the good life. And why is it that were able to let go of our upset and disappointment when Fido messes up? We dont often make the same allowances for our family. And Fido does not hesitate to show his appreciation for all the little things we do for him. Whether its a new toy, or when we scratch his neck, Fido sighs appreciatively and wags his tail with gusto. He lets us know how thankful he is. Hes usually up for a good time and open to new opportunities. If we suggest a long walk or invite him on an outing, hes ready for an adventure. So, heres the real deal. With these special critters, we dont have to worry about rejection or an air of superiority. In this climate of unconditional love and acceptance, we feel safe to show our tender, loving sides without feeling vulnerable or at risk. Theres clearly so much we humans can learn from our four-legged friends. Q „ Linda Lipshutz, LCSW, ACSW, is a psychotherapist serving individuals, couples and families.

A12 WEEK OF JULY 5-11, 2012 wounds and had trouble breathing, pos-sibly because she had aspirated seawater. The outlook was grim for Kahuna, who weighed about 172 pounds at the time of her stranding. But now?Shes done very well. Shes been here now for almost two years. Itll be two years in August. Thats an extraordinary time for a sea turtle to spend in rehab,Ž said Dr. Nancy Mettee, the Marinelife Center veterinarian who treated Kahuna. Most sea turtles dont get bone infections to the degree that Kahuna suffered, either. Shes the one who actually underwent the hyperbaric treatment,Ž said Dr. Met-tee. Kahuna was taken to an equine hyperbaric center, where the higher pressure helps penetrate the bone with oxygen to promote healing. It was the first time it has ever been done in a sea turtle, and it can be very difficult to gauge the success,Ž Dr. Mettee said. The really important thing is that for one year now, she has been off all medication, and her behavior and activity are normal.Ž During that recent visit, handlers were cleaning Kahunas tank and offering her food. She loves conch, she loves her sardines. Shes been eating a whole smorgas-bord,Ž Dr. Mettee said of the turtle, which has gained more than 20 pounds. The last time she was weighed, in April, she tipped the scales at about 195 pounds. Veterinarians estimate that Kahuna is in her 30s or 40s; she could live another 30 years or so, if she avoids sharks, boats and other enemies of sea turtles. Researchers hope that she will return to local shores and lay a clutch of eggs, even this summer. If she does, Kahunas handlers at the Marinelife Center will know. She has been tagged and microchipped, so a satellite will track her movements. It will give information about dive depths and her nesting on our beaches,Ž Dr. Mettee said. There is no reason why she shouldnt be able to launch the next generation of sea turtles. And her chances for sur-vival in the wild are stronger than those of Andre, the severely injured sea turtle, who underwent intensive rehabilitation, only to die soon after his release last sum-mer. She has some disability in that her front flippers are not complete front flip-pers, but her carapace doesnt have any injuries on it. She is missing soft tissue and bone on her front flippers,Ž Dr. Met-tee said. Officials of the Marinelife Center expect hundreds of people to be on hand for Kahunas release. But dont expect to see Dr. Mettee there.Its always a nail-biter for me. Im really glad we have the satellite on her to track her movements,Ž she said. As long has theyre here we can protect them. Its hard to watch them go because they mov-ing out into a world of peril. Its always hard.Ž Q Kahuna is set for release at 10 a.m. July 7 at the Loggerhead Marinelife Center, 14200 U.S. Highway One, Juno Beach.

I am sure that most folks would be able to discuss and debate this axiom indefinitely, particu-larly if there is an alcoholic beverage added to the mix. I choose to write about being alone from a fairly one-dimensional and lit-eral point of view; meaning Im not talking about God or spirits or auras or any other ethereal types of company or passenger. Simply, Im talking about not being in the physical presence of another person. A couple of years ago I had a huge trial that settled the week prior to its scheduled start date. I had not only cleared my calendar for the week of trial, but the preceding week to prepare. I suddenly found myself staring at two weeks of completely unscheduled time. The striking difference between the incredibly busy two weeks Id had planned and the blissful emptiness of the two weeks ahead felt as though I had stumbled out of a snowstorm into a sauna. I was going to take some meŽ time. I immediately turned to my com-puter, fired up its two large monitors, and with a flurry of keystrokes I began searching for my Shangri La. Back then, when this glorious life raft of free time appeared in my life I happened to be single, or shall we say ƒ alone. My first instinct was to scroll through the Rolodex in my mind for a potential partner in crime to bring on my adventure, and so I did. I started with people I was either casually dating or interested in, and this yielded noth-ing. I then turned to the volatile catego-ry of ex-girlfriends who might want, or be willing, to stroll down memory lane for a week or so, particularly if it was in some exotic locale. With only the briefest of consideration, it was clear that I wasnt inter-ested in this solution either. And then it hit me „ what I really wanted was to get away alone. I had never gone on vacation by myself, and the thought felt exhilarating and somehow just right. Once I had ascertained that I was actually going to go on an impromptu vacation alone, the next step was to pick a place. After a relatively short amount of research I found a wonderful resort called The Body Holiday at LeS-port on St. Lucia Island, which offered an amazing array of treatments, thera-pies, SCUBA diving, tennis and yoga all wrapped up in an all-inclusive resort, which was anything but commercial. It was incredible. I ended up becoming an honorary member in a tribe of wayward British characters and truly had one of the most relaxing and ener-gizing times in my life. During this time I came to the realization that I had become so entrenched in the facts, or rather the story, of my life that I became blind to the endless pos-sibilities to create fun, joy and meaning. The effect that this particular experience had on my practice was profound. It became clear to me that assisting someone through their divorce could and, in fact, should be more multi-dimensional than only explaining the law and advocating a position. I began to be more interested in what I could do to assist my divorce clients in survival techniques for the divorce process and after. The concept of taking a vacation alone has become a constant in my quiver of suggestions of how to cope with the stress and anxiety of a divorce. The very act of isolating yourself from people and things that you are famil-iar with often times can provide that little bit of perspective that is so sorely needed during a divorce. My advice is always simple: First make of list of things that you love to do, and then make a list of things that you want to do. Obviously finances play an important part in what you want to do; more spe-cifically it wont do your mental health any long-term good to take that trip to Fiji that youve always dreamed of when that wouldnt be a prudent financial decision. The truth is that there are many wonderful things to do in our own backyard. My recommendations du jour are to take a long weekend, or a week, and go down to one of the many fabulous hotels in the Keys, and just relax. Or, find a cozy getaway over on the Crystal River on the west coast of Florida and bask away some of these idyllic summer days. Regardless of the destination, take the time, re-introduce yourself to your-self, and find out what youd like to do next week, next year and during your remaining time on the planet. Q „ Kenneth A.

During market rebound, make sure appraisals are bouncing back, too heatherPURUCKER BRETZLAFF Interest rates at their lowest in years and banks lending up to 90 percent loan-to-value again are two things that have helped the real estate market take a leap in the right direction. Sales are showing appreciation, desirable inventory is on the decline and money is cheapŽ when considering the current finance rates. The conditions have allowed buyers to purchase properties that normally would cost hundreds to thousands of dollars more a month. The banks are still taking on average 60-90 days to close a transac-tion even if a buyer is preapproved; how-ever, buyers and sellers alike are capital-izing on unique market conditions. One of the properties I had listed a few months ago was a large family home in a popular Jupiter community. It was the largest model in the neighborhood and did not have many comparables in that same neighborhood. When pricing the home I looked at the neighboring communities within a half-mile of my listing where the homes had the same size and similar features. I then priced the home accordingly. Immediately after the home went on the market, I had a minimum of four showings a week. After three weeks, an offer came in from another family cur-rently residing within the neighborhood. As we negotiated through the contract, there were several conversations regard-ing the price of the home and comparable properties. A model of this size had not sold in the neighbor-hood in more than three years. Most recent sales had been much smaller homes, so it con-cerned the buyers. It took a week to reach a price that both buyer and seller felt comfort-able with, but we ultimately came to terms and the con-tract was signed and set to close within 45 days. My sellers were very hesitant to accept the contract contingent upon financing. This was an AS ISŽ contract, so they agreed to allow a contingency on the inspection period for 15 days. Everything was moving along smoothly with the inspection completed within the first week of the contract. When the report came back, there were only four minor items on the list „ perfect! This was the best inspection the inspector had encountered in more than two years. During these 15 days, the buyers were also going through the loan process. They had been preapproved to purchase and had to close within 45 days because their current home was also under con-tract. They did not seem concerned about qualifying since the contract was not contingent on approval, but had questions about the appraisal. When the appraisal was ordered, the appraiser called me and asked for direc-tions to the property. He was from Fort Lauderdale. The fact that he was not from the area was somewhat of a red flag, and then when he arrived at the home it immediately became apparent that he did not normally do appraisals in the area. I had comparables ready for him and provided him with informa-tion on the home, community and other recently sold homes. Appraisers always appreciate the information given to them and oftentimes will consider throughout their review. In this case, the appraiser did not want any additional information and told me he had already pulled com-parables on his own „ based upon the banks requirements and procedures. The 14th day of the inspection period came and I received an email from the buyers broker to please return their deposit, they were cancelling the con-tract due to inspection concerns. This came as a surprise since the sellers were going to repair the four minor items on the inspection list. There were no true concerns that we could see. My suspi-cion was correct. I learned the appraisal on the home came in much lower then the contract price, almost 10 percent lower. I asked for a copy of the appraisal, and learned the appraiser used short sales and foreclosures for comparables. I cannot say he was incorrect, but there were also several other properties that could have been used. I immediately asked the buyers broker to contest the appraisal, and fortunately he did. We were able to get a new appraisal done and it came in at a number very close to that of the contracted price. The buyers ended up coming back and closing on the home, but almost walked away simply because they were afraid to be at the upper end of the market for their new neighborhood and did not want to overpay.Ž Because banks will only finance on appraised values, it is a crucial aspect of any transaction that is going to have a mortgage attached to it. With values continuing to rise in Palm Beach County each month, the apprais-ers are still under strict guidelines and remain extremely conservative. It is no fault of either the appraiser or the bank „ simply a condition of the current market. The real estate market currently has many positive aspects and the rise in pending sales for Palm Beach County proves our area is still very desirable, but there are challenges as well. Buy-ers, sellers and banks „ all must be well informed in an effort to work together and capitalize on the recovery.

A22 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 5-11, 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY Fresh vegetables were part of the diet of the Victorian household during the warm growing months. But stored root vegeta-bles and home-canned food were used on snowy days. Advertisers knew that imagi-nary vegetables acting like humans were as popular a fantasy as fairies, elves, brown-ies, pixies and gnomes. Few color pictures were available. Magazines and newspapers were printed in black and white. But in the 1880s, retail stores advertised with colored trade cards, about 6-inch-by-2 1/2-inch, that were saved and often put in scrapbooks. There were many dif-ferent anthropomorphic fruit and veg-etable cards. Humanized veggies were pictured not only in the U.S. but also in England, Ger-many, France and Italy. The comic figures with human bodies often had names, such as Mr. Prune, The Baldwin Twins (apple heads) and Mr. Pumpkin. And there often was a funny caption, like two strawberry heads asking: What are you doing in my bed?Ž Trade cards are not the only place for veggie people. Postcards came next, about 1900. Figural salt and pepper shakers, chil-drens books, decorated plates and even small figurines were popular in the early 1900s. Now that eating fresh food is a national goal, veggie people are being noticed by collectors. And maybe they will encourage the family to eat their fruit and vegetables. Trade cards can be $10 to $25 each, postcards a little less. Many salt-and-pepper shaker sets sell for less than $40. Q: About 25 years ago, I bought a kitch-en table with one leaf and four chairs at a used-furniture store in Con-necticut. One end of the table bears a label that says Dinah Cook FurnitureŽ around the image of a black woman wear-ing a kerchief on her head. Can you tell me when the set was made and who made it? A: Dinah Cook FurnitureŽ was a trademark used by the Western Chair Co. of Chicago. The trademark may have been used to appeal to black customers during the great migration of black Americans from the South to Northern cities. If so, the set probably dates from the 1920s or 30s. Q: I have a 1937 Philadelphia Athletics scorecard thats in mint condition. Its really more like a program, because its a six-page booklet thats 10 3/4 inches high by 6 5/8 inches wide. The inside of the booklet includes a team photo and roster, a schedule of home games, a list of the pitchers and catchers for all the teams in the American and National leagues, a photo of Chubby Dean with his facsimile auto-graph, the pric-es of refresh-ments and a lot of interesting ads. What is it worth? A: Reproductions of your scorecard have been made, so the first thing to do is to make sure its an original. If its an original, you can try selling it online or to a dealer who sells sports memorabilia. Expect to get about $35-$45 for it. The Philadelphia Athletics, an American League team founded in 1901, became the Kansas City Athletics in 1955, then moved to California in 1968 and became the Oakland Athletics. Q: I have two small rubber toy motorcycles that belonged to a cousin who was born about 1930. One is red with green wheels; the other is green with red wheels. Both have AuburnŽ printed on the rear wheel and a rider who appears to be a policeman. What can you tell me about them? A: The Auburn Rubber Co. was founded in Auburn, Ind., in 1913. It started out as the Double Fabric Tire Corp., a manufacturer of tires. In the 1920s the company was reorganized and the name changed to the Auburn Rubber Co. Auburn began making rubber toy soldiers in 1935 and eventually became a major producer of rubber toys. Toy soldiers, cars, trucks, airplanes, boats, tractors, building blocks and many other rubber toys were made. The faces and details on the toys were hand-painted. The toys were inexpensive and sold in dime stores. Sears, Roebuck catalogs sold a line of Auburn rubber toys under the brand name Happy Time. Toy rubber motor-cycles were made in several colors in the 1940s and 50s. Auburn began making vinyl toys in 1954. The company was sold in 1960 and went bankrupt in 1969. Rubber toys can warp or become dry and brittle if they are not stored properly. They should be kept where it is cool. Value of your toy motorcycle, about $25 to $35.

KOVELS: ANTIQUES Collectors try to harvest classic produce ads c t c e a M terry KOVELnews@floridaweekly.com The Great American Tea Co. of New York City used this “veggie” trade card in the 1860s. The “man” in a top hat has the body of a peach, and the caption says “A swell peach.” In the slang of the day, the word “swell” meant a rich society man. Value, about $40. High-tech answer to Red Bull Chinese media reported that on May 4, at the Xiaogan Middle School in Hubei province, high school students study-ing for the all-important national college entrance exam worked through the eve-ning while hooked up to intravenous drips of amino acids to fight fatigue. A director of the schools Office of Academic Affairs reasoned that before the IVs were hung, weary students complained of losing too much time running back and forth to the schools infirmary for energy injections. After the media reports, there was a pub-lic backlash, but less against the notion that China was placing too much impor-tance on the exams than against reports that the government was subsidizing the cost of the injections. Q Can’t possibly be true Q Desmond Hatchett, 33, was summoned to court in Knoxville, Tenn., in May so that a judge could chastise him for again failing to make child-support payments. Official records show that Hatchett has at least 30 children (ages 14 down to toddlerŽ) by at least 11 women. He said at a 2009 court appearance that he was throughŽ siring children and apparently has taken proper precautions since then. (In Milwaukee, Wis., in April, Sean Patrick was sentenced to 30 years in prison for owing more than $146,000 for 12 children by 10 mothers, and the citys Journal Sentinel newspaper reported that, before being locked up, two con-victed pimps, Derrick Avery and Todd Carter, had fathered, respectively, 15 kids by seven women and 16 children with severalŽ mothers.) Q The Associated Press reported in May that Kentucky prison officials were working behind the scenes to resolve the thorny question of whether inmate Robert Foley deserves a hip replacement. Normally, a prisoner in such extreme pain would qualify. However, Foley, 55, is on death row for killing six people in 1989 and 1991, and since he has exhausted his appeals, he is still alive only because a court has halted all executions while the state reconsiders its lethal-injection procedure. Furthermore, all local hospi-tals queried by the prison to perform the procedure have declined to take Foley because the prison considers him dan-gerous. Q Chilean artist Sebastian Errazuriz recently created Christian popsiclesŽ made from wine that Mr. Errazuriz obtained by trickery after a priest con-secrated it into the blood of Christ.Ž The popsicles stick is actually a fig-ure of Jesus on the cross, as sort of a reward for finishing the treat. (Also, The Icecreamists shop in London, England, recently began offering a popsicle made with absinthe and holy water from a spring in Lourdes, France, which many Catholics revere for its healing powers. The Vice LollyŽ sells for the equivalent of about $29.) Q The official class photo of Eileen Diazs second-grade kids at Sawgrass NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATEElementary School in Sunrise, Fla., was distributed this spring with the face of the front-and-center child replaced by a dark-on-white smiley face. Apparently there was miscommunication between the school and the photographer about redoing the photo without the child, whose parents had not given permis-sion for the shot. (Another child without parental authorization was easily edited out of the photo, but the front-and-center student could not be.) Q Fine points of the law Q In May, the U.S. Court of Appeals in San Francisco ruled, 3-0, that it is not necessarily improper under federal law for Minute Maid to name a beverage Pomegranate BlueberryŽ even though those two ingredients constitute only 0.5 percent of the contents. A competing seller of pomegranate juices had sued in 2008, pointing out that 99.4 percent of the Minute Maid beverage was merely apple and grape juices. Minute Maids owner, Coca-Cola, called the competi-tors complaint baseless.Ž Q Almost all companies that collect customer data publish their policies on how they keep the data privateŽ (even though those privacyŽ policies almost always explain just precisely the ways they intend not to keep the data pri-vateŽ „ and are not required to by law). Researchers writing in the journal I/S: A Journal of Law and Policy for the Information Society (summarized in an April post on the blog TechDirt.com) found that if typical consumers bothered to read all of the detailed privacy policies they encountered, it would take from 181 to 304 hours per year (22-38 workdays), depending on shopping habits. (If every consumer in America did it, it would take from 40 billion to 67 billion hours a year, or 5 billion to 8.3 billion workdays a year.) Q Unclear on the concept Q In April, the Federal Communications Commission announced that it was fining Google for deliberately imped-ing the agencys investigation into the companys collection of wireless data by its roaming Street View vehicles and that the agency had decided, based on Googles ability to pay,Ž that it needed to double its staff-proposed fine in order to deter future misconduct.Ž Hence, it raised Googles fine from $12,000 to $25,000. (As pointed out by ProPublica.org, during the previous quarter year, Google made profits of $2.89 billion, or $25,000 every 68 seconds.) Q In April, police in Newtown Township, Pa., searched (unsuccessfully, it turns out) for a skinnyŽ black male, between ages 35 and 45, wearing a black tracksuit. He had indecently exposed him-self at a place of business „ the offices of the Bucks County Association for the Blind (although, obviously, at least one sighted person reported his description). Q District of Columbia Councilman Marion Barry initially was scorned in May for criticizing the influx of AsianŽ shopkeepers into the ward that he rep-resents. They got to go. Ill say that right now.Ž Later, after re-thinking the issue, Mr. Barry announced that his ward should be the model of diversity,Ž and issued an apology to Asian-Americans. But, he lamented, America has always been tough on immigrants. The Irish caught hell, the Jews caught hell, the Polacks caught hell.Ž (The preferred terms are PolishŽ or Poles.Ž) Q

Q Chamber music festival marks 20 years, 21 seasons COURTESY PHOTO Karen Dixon, Michael Ellert and Michael Forte of the Palm Beach Chamber Music Festival.SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY The Norton Museum of Art is rocking this summer. Literally.Its latest photography exhibition, Clubs, Joints, and Honky-Tonks,Ž looks beyond the energy onstage to the energy of the audience and even the venues. It brings together the work of such photographers as Elliott Landy, Henry Horenstein, Lynn Goldsmith, Jeff Dunas and even the rock star Moby, who offers his own point of view on the audience. The show is not about the stars as much as it about the music, and perhaps most important, the scene. Heavy Metal Parking Lot,Ž Jeff Krulik and John Heyns 1986 documentary about fans at a Judas Priest concert, provides a rocking soundtrack. Lynn Goldsmith, Jeff Dunas, their br ead-and-b utter is celebrity portraiture, and so thats what theyre really all about.

A24 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 5-11, 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY For his recent book 30 Lessons for Living: Tried and True Advice from the Wisest Americans,Ž researcher Karl Pillemer interviewed hundreds of men and women over the age of 65 to learn their secrets for living a good life. During in-depth discussions, these older Americans offered advice on everything from careers to parenting and „ of course „ love. The book opens with a chapter on marriage and includes the lessons that came up in the interviews time and again: Marry someone who shares your core values, friendship is as important as romantic love, and communication is the foundation of a strong relation-ship. Which all makes sense to me. But heres a tidbit that caught my attention: Watch out for teasing. After we got married, we went through sort of a teasing phase, and it was getting out of hand,Ž the book quotes one of the interview subjects, Ben Santorelli. So we made a pact that we wouldnt tease the other person at all, and it really helped. It can degener-ate into something nasty, teasing.Ž Teasing, really?As far as Im concerned, a little playful mocking is the lifeblood of relationships. Doesnt an ability to laugh at ourselves bring us closer? Im kind of a jokester, and maybe I thought it was funny,Ž Mr. Santorelli said. But it digs a little too deep. And then she would probably retaliate. It certainly changes the other persons attitude after they got teased.Ž I considered what he was saying and realized its true that Im often the one who leads the teasing. Its also true that my own feelings are easily hurt. How many times have I sulked after a perceived slight from my beau, only to have him respond, But Im just playingŽ? The more I thought about it, the wiser Mr. Santorellis suggestion seemed. And then I saw teasing in action. I recently ran into a group of young teens at the local coffee shop. They were 12 or 13 a mixed group of boys and girls, loud and feckless as only teenagers can be. One boy, long and lean in a basketball jersey, elbowed the boy next to him and pointed at the girl standing in front of them. Look at that,Ž he said. Look at that girls cellulite.Ž The other boy looked around, unsure. Cellulite?Ž You know, those bumps on the backs of her thighs.Ž The girl stared at the floor. She was tall and pretty, and its hard to imag-ine the boy in the jersey didnt have a thing for her. By now all the boys were laughing. And look at her toenails,Ž the boy in the jersey said. Girl, when we leave here Im going to buy you some toenail clip-pers.Ž The other boys snickered and nudged each other. Toe nail clippers,Ž one echoed. Its hard to gauge what our teasing looks like from the inside, when were either the ones dishing it out or taking it in. But when you see it from the outside, with all its petty meanness and downright ugliness, its hard to imagine how we ever let it creep into our rela-tionships in the first place.

There appears to be noth-ing to the play, so you take Easts king of clubs with the ace and return a low diamond. West fol-lows low, but when you win with dummys queen, East shows out, and there you are -in danger of losing the contract. In due course, you find that no matter how you twist and turn, the best you can do is go down one. You could attribute the result to bad luck, if you were so inclined, but the plain fact is that if you played the hand this way, the out-come is really your own fault. The moment dummy comes down, you can see that the con-tract is ice-cold if the diamonds are divided 2-2 or 3-1. The only threat is an unlikely „ but pos-sible „ 4-0 break. Granting that a 4-0 diamond division is only a 1-in-10 possibility, that does not excuse the failure to make provi-sions for it. Once youve developed the habit of worrying about such things, it becomes clear that the right play at trick two is the jack of diamonds, not the deuce. If West has all four dia-monds, leading the jack will enable you to make four diamond tricks „ and the contract „ because dummys K-Q-7 will eventually swallow up Wests 10-9-4 with the aid of repeated finesses. It is true that if East has all four diamonds, leading the jack wont help you a bit. But if that is the actual case, theres absolutely nothing you can do to salvage the contract. In bridge, all youre expect-ed to do is to control the controllable. Q

A26 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 5-11, 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYloves music and thats why he did the blues project. He just loves music,Ž said Tim B. Wride, the Nortons William and Sarah Ross Soter curator of pho-tography. Perhaps that points to a personal affection for music for Mr. Wride. Ms. Goldsmith, known for her images of Bruce Springsteen, had been co-manager of Grand Funk Railroad, which happened to have been the first big-scale concert I was ever at in my land, which is so scary, and I lived to tell the tale,Ž he said. Ah, those layers of connectivity, so much a part of the music industry. Ms. Goldsmiths images of The Boss are here, but Mr. Springsteen is shown falling into the audience, and sitting with the masses while playing a solo. The late, great Clarence Clemons jams on the sax along with Mr. Springsteen during one of those 1978 performances, making it as much about the audience as it is about the musicians. And Mick Jagger? That Rolling Stone is tiny, dwarfed by the stadium crowd that surrounds him as he stands alone on a stage. Its a pensive moment. Its not all arena rock.Mr. Dunas visited the birthplaces of the blues. Muddys Cabin, Stovall Plantation, Stovall, Mississippi,Ž shows the bits and pieces of the cabin in which blues-man Muddy Waters spent his youth. In the photograph, he hits a downbeat, with the fallen boards home creating a rhythm all their own. He has obvious love for these places where the blues were lived and played. The ramshackle Bobo Juke Joint, Bobo MississippiŽ sits amid the puddles after a rainstorm, and Raymond PatŽ Thomas, cigarette hanging from his mouth, plays his guitar for all time on a porch in which the paint is as cracked and dry as the blues themselves. An image of Etta James, titled Ettas Hand, Long Beach Blues Festival,Ž depicts just that. The singers plump, manicured hand reaches heavenward, just as she no doubt was reaching for a blues note. Those arent that far removed from country music. Case in point: Henry Horensteins 1970s images of Nashville nightlife. In Harmonica Player, Merchants Caf, Nashville, Tennessee,Ž a man sits at the bar seemingly wailing on the mouth harp. In another photo from that 1974 series, two men sit at a table drinking beers; later, one of the men swings his polyester-clad rump in an image titled Drunk DancersƒŽ Mr. Dunas certainly captured the moment. For this show, Mr. Wride also sought out variations on famous images. He went to Woodstock and met with Elliott Landy. Woodstock changed so many things about life, culture, the social order, expectations. It was truly an amazing experience, even when you werent there. So, to meet Elliott and go to Woodstock, it was a treat,Ž he said. But because this exhibition is more about the experience of being at a con-cert such as Woodstock, visitors will not see Mr. Landys seminal images of Jimi Hendrix or Joe Cocker. Instead, viewers see the back of Richie Havens as he faces an audience of thousands, and the image becomes more about that audience, and less about Mr. Havens. Many of those images of Woodstock surround the entrance to the exhibi-tion. There are thousands of them I could have used, but again, I really wanted to get that point across of that sea of humanity and those smaller parts of Woodstock that were just as interest-ing, like this open mic stage that didnt get a lot of play,Ž Mr. Wride said. Mr. Landy didnt just shoot Woodstock. In the 70s, he photographed concerts, doing what he called a cam-era dance.Ž The images are a swirl of color and movement. He would dance with the audience,Ž Mr. Wride said. Theres that love affair with the audience, or maybe the experience. Photos of the audience taken by the rock star Moby flank the screen that plays Heavy Metal Parking Lot.Ž Mr. Wride said his initial reaction was to not like Mobys images; then he started looking at them. Instead of seeing a crowd, he started seeing the individuals of the crowd. He compared the images to Canaletto paintings that are filled with vignettes, each telling a story of its own. All of a sudden that mass of humanity thats just like this teeming what-ever, they all become individuals again. Some doing things they dont mind showing you, others doing things that they dont want their mother to know,Ž Mr. Wride said. He fell in love with the images.Nobody has this privileged position, other than the front man of the band,Ž he said. And maybe a visitor to the Norton Museum of Art.

But youll have to face some tough competition before the Lion can claim his or her share of the goodies. Q VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Your rigidity regarding a difficult workplace situation could be the reason your colleagues arent rushing to your assistance.

Tend to your workaday chores, then go out and enjoy your well-earned fun time.

YesWithin the first 30 seconds of Magic Mike,Ž we see Channing Tatums nicely shaped backside. Its the type of cheap thrill the trailers have been promising for months, and rest assured, theres no shortage of six-pack abs or sexy male stripteases through-out. If youre going for the pretty boys, you will not be disappoint-ed. If this is all you care about, however, youll overlook the earnest story about a guy who wants to put the stripping life behind him and go into busi-ness for himself. That guy is Mike, and Tatum plays him in a nicely nuanced performance that shows how far hes grown as an actor. Mikes saving money to open a custom furniture business (and/or auto detailing „ he has big plans), but he has trouble secur-ing a loan. This means extra shifts at a construction site and more devotion to his nighttime gig as a stripper. The strip club includes scores of randy women and is run by Dallas (Matthew McConaughey), a big smiler who takes care of himself before any-one else. The other dancers are Ken (Matt Bomer), Tito (Adam Rodriguez), Tarzan (Kevin Nash), Big Dick Richey (Joe Manganiello) and The Kid (Alex Pettyfer), Mikes latest recruit whos learning on the fly. The Kid has a feisty sister, Brooke (Cody Horn), who has little going for herself but nonetheless views the men judgmentally. Stripping aside, what makes the movie work is Tatum getting us to sym-pathize with Mike, who both loves his life and loathes it. When his repeated attempts to go legitŽ turn out futile, we cant help but feel sorry for him. Its a shame that lost amongst the numerous stripteases is a nice dramatic performance that once again proves Tatums versatility. Consider: This year alone hes gone from action (HaywireŽ) to drama (The VowŽ) to comedy (21 Jump StreetŽ) and is perfectly at home in each. And now, in Magic MikeŽ he proves he can combine his pretty looks and acting ability. Much has been made of Tatums personal history as a stripper, but writer Reid Carolins script is only loosely based on Tatums experiences. Steven Soderbergh directs with a steady hand, allowing us to enjoy life with the guys in the beginning then slowly revealing the unpleasantness and dangers as the plot unfolds. The love story is unfortunate and tacked on, and the extended dance sequences do slow the film down, but Soderbergh understands the stripteases are the films selling point and doesnt shortchange what the audience wants. To that end, I give credit to the rest of the cast as well: These men are actors, not dancers, but for the rest of their lives people will refer back to this movie as either a badge of honor or source of embarrassment. All of them, to a man, just go for it. And thats a good thing for all. Q Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter ++ (Benjamin Walker, Dominic Cooper, Rufus Sewell) Abraham Lincoln (Walker), both before and during his presidency, fights and kills vampires in an effort to keep them from taking over the country. As long as youre not dumb enough to take any of this seriously, the 3D, action and effects are nicely done. Theres good trash and bad trash, and this is good trash. Rated R. Safety Not Guaranteed +++ (Aubrey Plaza, Jake M. Johnson, Mark Duplass) A magazine intern (Plaza) befriends a man (Duplass) who places an ad for time travel but just might be completely insane. This is a funny, smart comedy. Plaza (Parks & Recre-ationŽ) is great in her typically detached way, Johnson gets the biggest laughs in a strong supporting turn, and the ending will take you by surprise. Rated R. Brave +++ (Voices of Kelly Macdonald, Emma Thompson, Billy Connolly) Unhappy with her mothers (Thompson) insis-tence that she be more girly,Ž teenager Merida (Macdonald) asks a witch to cast a spell to change her mothers mind. Little does Merida know the work it will take to undo the curse. The spir-ited story has some unexpected twists, but the 3D is nothing special and theres not much for adults. Rated PG. Q CAPSULES LATEST FILMS‘Magic Mike’ J i p a s R dan HUDAKwww.hudakonhollywood.com >> Channing Tatum told me in an interview that while Matthew McConaughey was shooting his striptease, the extras got so rowdy they ripped off his g-string.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 5-11, 2012 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT A35FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE Caf Boulud goes Sud for summer scott SIMMONS ssimmons@floridaweekly.com Caf Boulud has gone south.Make that Sud.The menu of Boulud Sud, star chef Daniel Bouluds newest restaurant in New York City, is appearing in his Palm Beach outpost at the Brazilian Court hotel. Call it a pop-up in Palm Beach.The very idea of a restaurant within a restaurant is reminding me of those nested Russian doll sets, only far more delicious,Ž writes Georgette Farkas, public relations director for Chef Bou-luds restaurants. Ms. Farkas was at the meal presented by executive chef Jim Leiken, pastry chef Arnaud Chavigny and sommelier Mariya Kovacheva, who recently was named Top Somm by Guild of Somme-liers. Boulud Sud is Mediterranean in feel, with nods to Earth and sea, and fare from countries that ring the sea, including Italy, Spain, Greece, North Africa, Gibraltar and Lebanon. During a recent tasting, food journalists sampled a range of fare, from grilled octopus to lamb loin with eggplant. Whod ever think youd have hummus and babaganoush at the Brazilian Court? Its an earthy menu, and its one that is well suited to summer in South Florida. That octopus a la plancha ($16) was grilled until tender then served with Marcona almonds, arugula and Jerez, or Spanish sherry, vinegar. The Sicilian salad, of fried mortadella-stuffed olives, tossed in arugula with shaved pecorino and drizzled with an aioli ($13), offered a pairing of hot and cold, bitter and savory. And the Spicy Duck Leg Katafi ($16) resembled bird nests. It was served with date chutney. The cedar grilled rouget, or red mullet ($29), was served with fennel, shal-lots and espellette, a pepper common to the Basque region. Servers warned diners not to eat the thin cedar plank on which the tender, red-hued fish was served „ the wrong kind of fiber, a waiter said with a laugh. The Harissa Grilled Lamb Loin with Haricots, Algerian Eggplant, Yogurt and Lavash ($36) combined tender slices of lamb layered with slices of eggplant. The yogurt served with the dainty haricots tempered the fiery harissa „ essentially a Tunisian pepper sauce. A sampling of the desserts pastry chef Chavigny is serving included a grapefruit givr ($12), combined grape-fruit sorbet with sesame halva and that Turkish delight, rose loukoum. Crme brle ($10) gained an Eastern edge, courtesy of apricot and star anise. Ms. Kovacheva served two summery cocktails. One, The Provencal, com-bined lavender-infused gin, Cointreau and Dolin dry vermouth; the other, the Santorini Summer, was a pink concoc-tion of ouzo, pisco, fresh watermelon, basil and lemon, perfect for sipping dur-ing a stroll through the 1920s boom-era Brazilian Court. Wines served with dinner hailed from Italy, France and Greece, which featured a Vinsanto from Santorini. The menu is available a la carte for dinner through Sept. 2. Caf Boulud also will serve a four-course prix fixe menu for $35 at dinner on Saturdays and Sundays. Caf Bouluds regular menu also will be available at lunch, dinner and week-end brunch. The Brazilian Court is at 301 Australian Ave., Palm Beach. For reservations, call 655-6060 or see cafeboulud.com. Whole Foods gets its buzz on: The store will host a free screening of the documentary Vanishing of the BeesŽ at 7 p.m. July 6. This tale from filmmakers George Langworthy and Maryam Hein-en reveals the mystery of the disap-pearing bees and the links to industrial farming and human attitudes toward the natural world. And from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. July 7, kids can participate in The Honey Bee Craft Project. In this special, free Kids Club, kids will be making recycled bee crafts. Chil-dren will learn why having a healthy honeybee population is necessary. Whole Foods is at Downtown at the Gardens, 1171 Lake Victoria Gardens Ave., Palm Beach Gardens. Phone: 691-8550. Supper club closes: It had a new chef and a new fusion menu, but the owners of the tony 51 Supper Club decided to quietly close the restaurant at Downtown in the Gardens in June. That new menu, by chef Chris Paul, replaced a retro menu that looked to central and northern Europe for inspira-tion. J.P. Hervis, who handled publicity for the restaurant, confirmed the clos-ing. No word yet from Downtown as to what it expects will fill the space. Q COURTESY PHOTO Star chef Daniel Boulud opened Caf Boulud at Palm Beach’s Brazilian Court in 2003.
