A2 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 20-26, 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY A scientist from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute has been awarded a pair of grants totaling $2.8 million from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences of the National Institutes of Health and from TargAnox, a Massachusetts-based biotechnology firm. Kate Carroll, a Scripps Research associate professor, will be the principal investigator for the new projects. Research funded by the grants will focus on a process known as sulfenylation. In the new research, Ms. Carroll will look at cell signaling in sulfenylation and explore ways that it might be modified with potential drug compounds to treat conditions such as lung and breast cancers, as well as be used to diagnose and monitor such diseases. During periods of cellular stress, caused by factors such as UV radiation or chronic diseases such as cancer, the level of highly reactive oxygen-containing molecules can increase, resulting in inappropriate modification of proteins and cell damage through this process of sulfenylation. One oxidant produced naturally in the body, hydrogen peroxide, acts as a messenger that can activate cell proliferation. To explore the process, Ms. Carroll and her colleagues have developed a highly selective chemical probe „ known as DYn-2 „ that can detect minute differences in sulfenylation rates within the cell. The new four-year, approximately $1.5 million NIH grant will fund work utilizing that chemical probe to fully define the molecular mechanism through which a key signaling protein, epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), is modified by hydrogen peroxide. The grant from NIH will let us take a closer look at the basic mechanics of the sulfenylation process and detail how oxidation regulates EGFR,Ž Carroll said, in a statement.. The TargAnox study uses that work as a spring board into potential treatments.Ž Carroll also plans to investigate additional targets of sulfenylation and to test various compounds that can reverse the process.

A4 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 20-26, 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY amy GOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly Mayor Rahm-ney’s attack on Chicago teachers union Unions are under attack in the United States „ not only from people like Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin, but now, with the teachers strike in Chi-cago, from the very core of President Barack Obamas inner circle, his former chief of staff and current mayor of that city, Rahm Emanuel. Twenty-five thou-sand teachers and support staff are on strike there, shutting down the public school system in the nations third-largest school district. This fight now raging in Chicago, Obamas hometown, has its roots in this historic stronghold of organized labor, and in the movement started one year ago this week, Occupy Wall Street. The conflict presents a difficult moment for Obama, who will need union support to prevail in his race with Mitt Romney, but who is inex-tricably linked, politically, to his brash, expletive-spewing former aide, Mayor Rahm-ney Emanuel. At the heart of the conflict is how schools will be run in Chicago: locally, from the grass roots, with teacher and parent control, or top-down, by a school board appointed by Emanuel. Karen Lewis, president of the Chicago Teach-ers Union, worked as a board-certified chemistry teacher at King College Prep High School in Chicago. She under-stands how the system works. Months before the strike, I asked her about the situation in Chicago. The newly elected Emanuel had an appointed board com-prised mostly of corporate executives, the Academy for Urban School Leader-ship. Lewis told me, One of the biggest problems is that when you have a CEO in charge of a school system, as opposed to a superintendent, a real educator, what ends up happening is that they literally have no clue as to how to run the schools.Ž The AUSL not only relies on business executives with no educa-tion experience to run schools, but also brings in recent college graduates to teach. These recruits cost very little to pay, but arrive with little or no teaching experience. Pauline Lipman is a professor of education and policy studies at the Univer-sity of Illinois-Chicago. She explained, Chicago was the birthplace of this neo-liberal corporate reform agenda of high-stakes testing, paying teachers based on test scores, disinvesting in neighbor-hood schools and then closing them and turning them over to charter schools.Ž Lipman credits Arne Duncan with driving this corporatization of Chi-cagos public schools. Duncan, Presi-dent Obamas secretary of education, was the chief executive officer of the Chicago Public Schools, where he led the institution of charter schools, 90 percent of which are nonunion. Arne Duncan pushed through this agenda of closing neighborhood schools, turn-ing them over to private operators or expanding charter schools and having charter schools come in ... and increas-ingly putting more pressure on teachers to respond to high-stakes tests. That agenda has been really devastating in Chicago.Ž Chicago is also the epicenter of the community pushback against the Dun-can/Obama/Emanuel attack on public schools and the teachers union. Lewis comes out of the Caucus of Rank-and-File Educators, CORE, which took over leadership of the union with a commit-ment to transparent school administra-tion. Opposition to Emanuels dictates has provoked the union into this historic strike. Phil Cantor, a strike captain for Teachers for Social Justice, explained: Were not allowed legally to strike over anything but compensation. But teach-ers are not most interested in compen-sation; were most interested in being able to do our jobs for the students we serve.Ž Thanks to the grass-roots organizing that preceded the strike (in the same Chicago streets where Obama was once a community organizer), the striking teachers enjoy extensive parent and student support. One parent, Rhoda Rae Gutierrez, has two children in elemen-tary school in Chicago. She is a member of the group Parents 4 Teachers and is marching with the teachers. She told me, When we fight for the rights of teachers for a fair contract, fair compen-sation, lower class size, well-resourced schools, having psychologists, enough social workers, enough support staff, enough aides in the classroom, nurses ... when teachers have these resources in their schools, we know that our children can do incredible things.Ž This struggle reflects the essence of Occupy Wall Street „ community members across class, race and other traditional divides uniting in disciplined opposition to corporate power. Author and journalist Chris Hedges, who has observed the Occupy movement closely, put the strike into context: The teachers strike in Chicago is arguably one of the most important labor actions in probably decades. If it does not prevail, you can be certain that the template for the attack on the union will be carried out across the country against other teachers unions and against the last redoubt of union activity, which is in the public sector, of course „ firemen and police.Ž For people who are wondering where Occupy is today, just look at the streets of Chicago.

No portion may be reproduced without the express written consent of Florida Media Group, LLC. rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly OPINIONThe lost ethic of Fraser Robinson After all the oratory at both political conventions, one line stands out. It was from Michelle Obama, talking about her late father, Fraser Robinson, and his insistence on paying his small portion of her college tuition bills on time. You see, for my dad,Ž she said, thats what it meant to be a man.Ž In one moving sentence, she opened a vista on a life of self-sacrifice. The nar-rative arc of her rendition of his life bent upward, and understandably so. He was a working-class father who raised two Princeton University graduates. But she could just as easily have invoked a sense of the countrys loss. Because we dont really make Fraser Robinsons anymore. He was a high-school-educated man who married and stayed married, who worked and kept working despite considerable adversity. Whatever his relative lack of education and skills, he was a hero of character, shaped by mores that have been eroding for decades. According to Michelles convention speech and to published accounts, her father was a pump operator at the city water plant in Chicago. He was diag-nosed with multiple sclerosis as a young man, and still got up to work every day. When he came home, hed reach down to lift one leg after another to make it up the stairs and greet his kids. Its difficult to imagine a more affecting depiction of everyday dutifulness than that. With his wife of 31 years, Marian, Robinson built a family deeply invested in his childrens future. Too few men in his position now do the same. The 2010 study When Mar-riage Disappears,Ž a publication of the National Marriage Project at the Uni-versity of Virginia and the Institute for American Values, tells the story. In the 1970s, 73 percent of adults with a high-school degree or some college were in intact first marriages. In the 2000s, 45 percent were. As recently as 1982, just 13 percent of births to people with this level of edu-cation were out-of-wedlock. In the late 2000s, 44 percent were. Among blacks with a high-school degree or some col-lege, the figure was 75 percent. Males with a high-school education have been dropping out of the labor force for decades. One flip side is a drastic increase in the rolls of Social Security Disability Insurance, despite better medical care and less-strenuous jobs. Forty years ago, Fraser Robinson left for work in pain every day „ walk-ing on two canes „ and now a small army of his fellow Americans schemes to get paid for doing nothing. The tectonic plates of the culture and economy shifted since the 1960s to squeeze the likes of Fraser Robinson, at the same time the government has been subsidizing a version of the fam-ily „ single-mother households „ that makes him superfluous. The new norm that dispenses with duty-bound fathers is not good for families, and it is not good for men. Michelle Obama powerfully described her fathers pride. For him, to be a man was to be responsible, day after day. His quotidian courage was her windfall; that it is becoming increasingly rare is our tragedy. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.

PET TALESOh, rats Bad PR aside, rats can be wonderful pets for kids – or adults BY GINA SPADAFORIUniversal UclickPeople are always asking me to recommend a good pet for a child „ an affec-tionate animal that can be cared for with a minimum of adult assistance. A rabbit?Ž they ask. I shake my head. Rabbits, especially the bigger varieties, are hard for a child to hold. When they dont feel secure, rabbits will kick „ and by doing so will sometimes break their backs. The result? A dead rabbit and a heartbroken child. So no rabbits, at least not for young children. Mice? Too small, too fragile,Ž I reply. Hamster? Better, but too interested in sleeping during the day, plus theyre natu-ral escape artists and somewhat nippy,Ž I say. Well, what then?Ž the parent will finally demand. To them I say, Rats.Ž And after the air clears of expressions of revulsion and disgust, I explain why a healthy rat from a reputable source is a great pet for a child „ and indeed for almost any animal lover. Forget horror movies and the bubonic plague. Were not talking about wild rats, but domesticated ones. Let go of everything youve ever thought about rats and consider the benefits with an open mind. Q Rats are social animals. Many small pets dont like being handled, but rats get used to careful socialization easily, and come to enjoy riding in pockets and on shoulders. They like people! Q Rats are smart. Rats respond quickly to food-based training and seem to love performing. A friend of mine trained a rat for her college-level psy-chology course, and came to like the little guy so much that hes now a doted-on pet in her home. Q Rats are agile and sturdy. Try to get a guinea pig to run a maze or climb a ladder and youll appreciate the fleet-footedness of a rat. Unlike mice, rats can stand up to the handling and, occasion-ally, to the unintentional mishandling of well-meaning children. Q Rats are cute. Think sleek, shiny fur with dark, glossy eyes and cute little ears. You say its the tail that gets to you? Give a rat a break. If he just had a fluffy tail, hed be a squirrel, and people would give him nuts in the park. Really, is that fair? Q Rats are diverse. Did you know that rats come in many more colors and patterns than the gray-brown of a street rat and the white of a lab rat? Think col-ors such as silver mink, platinum, blue and chocolate, and markings including hooded (the head a different color than the body) or masked. Gorgeous! Q Rats are easy to keep. Get a cage sized for a slightly larger animal, such as a chinchilla or guinea pig, and your rat will be content. Add bedding, a place for the animal to hide and sleep, a food dish and a water bottle, some toys, and youre set. Your rat will happily eat the food manu-factured for him, and he will love you if you add fruit, nuts, vegetables and other people food.Ž It is essential to get your pet from a reputable source. And as with all pets, teaching children safe handling skills „ especially with regard to hand-washing after playing with pets „ is a must. You should also prepare to teach your child lessons in lifes losses, since rats typically live about three years. Even with those caveats, the only thing rats need to become more popular as pets is a good public relations campaign, and maybe a new name. Skinny-tailed squir-rels, perhaps? Q COURTESY PHOTOSmart, friendly and able to learn tricks easily, rats can be a good first pet for a school-aged child.

Meanwhile, embassies are being blown up. Wars are being waged. Chil-dren are starving. Cell phones are ring-ing.

Youre in the same position as you were before we met, but somehow now its my fault.Ž „ Jeannette Showalter, financial columnistQQQ Once there was a golfer whose drive landed on an anthill. Rather than move the ball, he decided to hit it where it lay. He gave a mighty swing. Clouds of dirt and sand and ants exploded from the spot. Everything but the golf ball. It sat in the same spot. So he lined up and tried another shot. Clouds of dirt and sand and ants went flying again. The golf ball didnt even wiggle. Two ants survived. One dazed ant said to the other, Whoa! What are we going to do?Ž Said the other ant: I dont know about you, but Im going to get on the ball.Ž „ Cynthia MottQQQ A young woman buys a mirror at an antique shop and hangs it on her bath-room door. One evening, while getting undressed, she playfully says, Mirror, mirror, on my door, make my bust-line 44.Ž Instantly, there is a brilliant flash of light, and her breasts grow to enormous proportions. Excitedly, she runs to tell her husband what happened, and in minutes they both return. This time the husband crossed his fingers and says, Mirror, mirror on the door, make my manhood touch the floor.Ž Again, there is a bright flash and ƒ both his legs fall off. „ Cynthia MottQQQ A bar burns down one night.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 20-26, 2012 HEALTHY LIVING A11 HEALTHY LIVINGCindy (details have been changed) had tried everything she could think of to get through to her husband, but quite frankly, shed just about given up. Fred was in his own world and completely tuned her out. She wanted him to understand how exhausted she was, and how important it was to her that he help more with the children. But every time she brought up the topic he got defensive, reminding her he worked long hours for the familys benefit, not because he was out partying. In frustration, Cindy often dished it right back, accusing him of paying attention to everyone and everything but her. Much of the time, Fred retreated to his study and immersed himself in paperwork, refusing to engage in any conversation that might become contentious. She knew Fred had been under a lot of pressure lately at work, but he wouldnt open up or discuss any of his concerns. On a particularly rough day hed come home scowling and mutt ering, and would criticize any comments she made. Then, when she asked him what was up, he usually denied he was upset. It was especially hurtful because she often heard him on the phone with co-workers discussing office politics ad nauseam. Sometimes she got so jealous shed accuse him of confiding in everyone but her, but he would get so irritated and hostile, shed back off. At times like these, they just couldnt seem to break away from this pattern of name calling and criticizing each other. She knew she could nag, and that the harder she tried to get a point across, the more he seemed to pull away. Other times, she would make a concerted effort to keep her cool. But when she approached him and said they needed to talk, Fred would become defensive and put a wall up. Any meaningful conversation would then be stalled. She hated when Fred said that HE couldnt talk to her anymore without things blowing out of proportion. It frustrated her because in her mind, she got along with everyone, but couldnt get through to her own husband. Why couldnt he just understand that she was only trying to get closer to him, but she no longer knew how?It can be terribly distressing to be in a relationship when we believe our loved one is not attuned to us. Stepping back to consider whether our partner is truly motivated to come through for us can be terribly unsettling. What if it seems they no longer care, and are not interested in what matters to us? Certainly, we all deserve to be in a relationship where our needs are respected and considered. Fully understanding how our partner feels about us, and his/her ability or willingness to remain committed is a complex matter. Some people relate in a way in which they give the impression they dont care about anyone or anything, when in fact, they care deeply. They find it too difficult to show vulnerability. Others may be inconsiderate and selfabsorbed. Addressing this insensitivity, and clarifying a bottom line of what we will or will not accept, may require self-awareness and a commitment to speaking up in a firm, non-antagonistic way. Conflict and disappointment are inevitable in every relationship, but the way each person approaches the disagreement dictates how matters will get resolved. When a relationship is struggling, its only natural to read negativity into the most innocent of comments. However, when we immediately assume our partner is intentionally trying to hurt or upset us we go into a defensive mode and actually may escalate a conflict we could have headed off. Some of us like to micro-manage a relationship, and want things to go exactly as we believe they should. Our partners feel stifled and may become resentful over time. If we can shift into a mindset where we give our partners the benefit of the doubt, were less likely to act defensively and will probably head off upsetting miscommunications. At the end of the day, we certainly would like to create a climate where our partner looks forward to coming home and trusts us with his or her most heartfelt secrets. Our partners often worry well be judgmental and will think less of them if they confide their vulnerabilities. They want to trust that we wont use their confidences against them. To avoid intense feelings, many people tune out their partners and withdraw. Not only do they avoid talking about stressful topics, they begin to avoid meaningful conversations as well, which increases emotional distance. One of the most powerful ways to lessen estrangement is to acknowledge the efforts made by our partners and to express sincere appreciation. Compliments dont have to be elaborate or flowery. Frequent, positive statements make a huge difference. A sense of humor should lighten the mood and promote tremendous good will. Of course its hard to feel positive when we believe weve been slighted or criticized. But we probably should be honest with ourselves, and ask the following questions: How careful have we been with our words and tone of voice? How willing have we been to patiently listen to our partners? Have we taken steps to demonstrate a willingness to accept our partner without judgment? Couples can take important steps to restore closeness. We just have to be willing to take responsibility for our own actions, admitting when were wrong and initiating efforts to make amends. And, most important, is knowing that it helps when we make the first move to change our attitude and actions. This gives us the best chance of relating to our partners in the way were hoping they will relate to us in return.

A12 WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 20-26, 2012 FLORIDA WEEKLY Mobility’ hearing instrument is a brand new rst class line of hearing instruments that is revolutionizing the industry. While recent digital hearing aids have done an excellent job at improving sound quality, the Mobility system was created to wirelessly stream your TV or radio directly to your hearing aids, while maintaining its best-in-class ability to help you hear clearer on the phone, in the car, even outside.Expires 10/4/12 larry COOMESCEO/Gardens Medical Center Orthopedic program helps keep patients on their feetLet me take this opportunity to say how pleased I am to be back in South Florida. After recently living on the west coast with my family, I was extended the opportunity to return to the area and accept the position of CEO at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center. I cannot begin to tell you how excited we are to serve the greater community of Palm Beach Gardens and to continue providing high quality services at our hospital for our patients. When Im not at the hospital, my passion away from the job is golfing and other forms of exercise. I know that living with daily bone and joint pain can be unbearable for many people. Your ability to m ove, work and be physically active is related to the health of your bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles and nerves. When aches, pains, or serious injuries compromise your ability to function in comfort, turn to the orthopedic specialists at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center. The orthopedic program combines the experience of a focused, multidisciplinary team. This team includes internists, anesthesiologists, orthopedic surgeons, nurses, in addition to occupational and physical therapists. Together, with the patient, they develop, collaborate and deliver comprehensive care for patients requiring various levels of treatment „ from diagnosis through recovery. Whether receiving a hand X-ray in our outpatient radiology department, or having a hip X-rayed in our emergency room after a fall at home, our dedicated staff of professionals is there to offer technical, yet compassionate care. Diagnosis of pain, injury or disease is key to prescribing a treatment for successful recovery. At PBGMC, we use advanced orthopedic imaging tools to create precise and detailed images of bones, joints, and tissues. Imaging tests utilized at PBGMC include: Q X-ray Q Sonography Q Computerized Tomography (CT) Q Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Arthroscopy is a diagnostic procedure performed most frequently on the knee or shoulder joint, but can also include ankles, wrists, and hips. It can be used to diagnose suspected ligament tears, damaged cartilage, bone fragments, joint pain, or the need for joint surgery. In many cases, repairs can be made through the arthroscope reducing the need for larger incisions and minimizing recovery time. Knee and hip replacements are common procedures performed on people with severe arthritis. Joint replacements involve replacing the damaged joint with an artificial joint, or prosthesis. We now offer a new procedure in orthopedics called the Shape Match technology. Shape Match is for patients who need a full knee replacement surgery, however during this procedure, the Shape Match device takes a 3-D image of your knee to replicate the area that is being replaced. This allows the patient to have an exact match of the knee once its completed. It also allows patients to have a quicker recovery time and get back to activities in just days. Once surgery is performed, patients will receive physical therapy and pain management, if needed, for several days while in the hospital. Our team of nurses and physical therapists conduct patient and family education on what to expect when the patient goes home and how to care for the incision prior to discharge. In preparation for the return home after surgery, a home assessment may be conducted to help promote your safety at home. In most cases, patients will be placed on a schedule of outpatient therapy once discharged from the hospital. Knowing that back and neck problems may be complex, Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center Back and Spine Specialists are ready to treat the most minor symptoms to some of the most extreme. Dont let your pain keep you from simple tasks or your favorite activities. At our outpatient rehabilitation clinic, we help patients learn how to feel the articulation of the ball and socket joints and the deep core firing of the muscles. A quiet, private setting free of distractions; specialized equipment; and the use of mirrors is essential. Patients are asked to visualize inflating their disks as they exhale. Mentally, this puts space between the disks. Once the patients can see,Ž and feel the deep core firing, results can increase. Exercise intensity for the low-back muscles is progressively increased as a patient gains strength and spinal flexibility. As part of the program, patients also are given customized home exercises designed to build upon their instruction at the clinic. If you would like to learn more about the medically supervised outpatient rehabilitation clinic at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center, call (866) 402-2663. Q

BUSINESS FLORIDA WEEKLY PALM BEACH COUNTY COMMERCE WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 20-26, 2012 A14 COURTESY PHOTO Palm Beach Atlantic University, just south of downtown West Palm Beach, has moved up in rankings to 50th in the South. Palm Beach Atlantic University has moved up a notch. The private school, based in West Palm Beach, was ranked 50th among the best universities in the South according to U.S. News & World Reports Best Colleges 2013 edition.The publication includes rankings of more than 1,400 schools nationwide. Palm Beach Atlantic moved up in this years rankings from 51st last year. The universitys growing reputation recognized by this ranking is a tes-timony to the engagement of faculty with students and the wide variety of learning opportunities fueled by our location,Ž President William M.B. Flem-ing Jr. said in a statement. The result is graduates who are leaders in their disci-plines and their communities.Ž The college ranking categories are based upon the 2010 Carn-egie Foundation for the Advance-ment of Teaching classifications. For the first time, the results from the past two years of high school coun-selor reputation scores, which are only used in the National University and National Liberal Arts Colleges rankings, have been averaged. This was done to account for the fluctuation of ratings year to year, and also to increase the number of ratings each school received. The high school counselor ratings are one of the factors that indicate a schools academic quality. Other indicators include financial resources, alumni giving, assessment by administrators at peer institutions, faculty resources, student selectivity, and the retention of students. To find more information on the Best Colleges 2013 rankings methodology, go to www.usnews.com/collegemeth. The faith-based Palm Beach Atlantic University offers undergraduate, gradu-ate and professional degrees in West Palm Beach, Orlando, Wellington and online. Q Palm Beach Atlantic University achieves higher ranking SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe number of jobs filled through El Sols day labor service increased by 10 percent during the first half of 2012 compared to the same period last year and the outlook for the remainder of the year looks good as well, the labor center said. A total of 4,645 workers were hired through June 30 compared to 4,166 hired in the first six months of 2011. Since April an average of 1,000 jobs has been filled monthly which is unprecedented, El Sol Cen-ter Director Jocelyn Skolnik said in a statement. The previous record high employment was in September 2008, when 942 workers were hired. The increased hiring means a lot to those who depend on day labor work to support themselves and their families,Ž Ms. Skolnik said. It also has a positive impact on the local economy.Ž Ms. Skolnik said that if the upward trend in employment continues, 2012 could be a record year for jobs filled through the nonprofit El Sol Neighborhood Resource Center.A total of 2,536 workers and 5,759 employers were registered at El Sol as of June 30. The jobs filled are mostly temporary and include work in landscaping, moving, painting, construction, gen-eral labor, housekeeping and others. Last year a survey among a sample of El Sol employers found that a major-ity rated the workers performance positively and all said they planned to use El Sol workers again, said Royce Emley, VISTA Job Developer for El Sol. The survey was conducted by HAYSMAR Inc., an independent research firm based in Jupiter. The El Sol Neighborhood Resource Center is at 106 Military Trail in Jupi-ter. Hours for the day labor service are 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 7 a.m. to noon Sun-day. Call 745-9860.

Actually, bond investing entails many significant risks. In a major bond bull market, many of those risks are mitigated or hidden. True, U.S. Treasury bonds have typically insulated bond investors from default or credit risk, inflation risk, cur-rency risk, event risk, political risk, etc. However, as recent columns have revealed, the true extent of national, state and local government indebted-ness creates numerous uncertainties in the market. There are huge, unreport-ed liabilities, largely associated with unfunded future entitlement programs and pensions. There is an incredible shortfall between future years receipts and the yearly requirements/outlays under contractual entitlements and pension obligations, i.e. credit risk. But even if the U.S. Treasurys credit remains as is (and is not further down-graded) and even if the upcoming fiscal crisis is somehow averted, U.S. gov-ernment bond investors still face the greatest risk of all: That the 30-year bull market in bonds will end and interest rates will begin rising. One adviser said that, Rates as measured by the 10-Year Treasury have hit all-time lows, from 15.84 percent in 1981 to a recent low of 1.49 percent on July 31, and have limited room for further decline.Ž (Fixed Income Investing „ The Danger of Complacency,Ž Aug. 2012, Bandon Capital Management, www.bandon.com). With news reports of a weak U.S. economy and a Federal Reserve trying its best to prime the pump by bringing rates even lower, it is very hard to imag-ine rising rates. But not only could it happen, it clearly will happen ƒ some-time in the future. This column is not sounding the alarm that this is about to happen but it is intended to make clear, to U.S. government and all long-term bond investors, that though interest rate risk is currently silent, it will one day emit a deafening roar. Fixed income return has two components: payment of coupon or inter-est and price return (gain or loss). In a rising interest rate environment, in order for outstanding bonds to adjust to market coupons or rates of interest, bond prices must adjust. Here are some general truisms when interest rates rise: first, bond prices decrease; second, longer maturity bonds will experience a greater change in price than shorter maturity; third, lower coupon bonds are harder hit than higher cou-pon bonds; and fourth, long term, zero coupon bonds will be hardest hit. Bandon Capitals report offers examples of the price declines associated with interest rate increases. Should we see a two percentage point increase in 10 year yields to 3.49 percent (from the Aug. 31 yield of 1.49 percent), an investor would experience a cumula-tive loss of 9.53 percent over a three-year period.Ž Note that the interest rate peak in 2011 was at 3.72 percent. If the 10-year Treasury yield increases from 1.49 percent to 5.49 percent in three years, investors will experience losses of 23.53 percent.Ž Also note that the U.S. 10-year was as high as 5 percent in 2007. Some of you might be thinking, Well, that is why I hire a managerƒ to actively manage my bond portfo-lio.Ž Your adviser might offer those words as a placation. But, as Bandon further points out, the index of bond managers who actively manage bond portfolios produced losses in their portfolios during the several recent periods when rates rose. In the peri-ods of October to December 2010; September to October 2011; and Janu-ary through March 2012, Pimcos total return and Barclays aggregate both lost money in each of those periods. Active management did not work like a charm; it worked a price loss even after coupon payment. Finally, in the nine years from 2000 to 2008, there was net cash flow into bond mutual funds of $47 billion; in the three years 2009-2011, net cash inflow was a gargantuan, eye-popping $740 billion. (Bandons source was the Investment Company Institute.) When interest rates finally do rise, there will be a mad rush for the exit door and not all of the $740 billion will get out. What is an investor to do? You absolutely need a conversation with your investment adviser. Reading the Ban-don report first assures a more engag-ing conversation. Also, consider algo/computerized trading programs, which are void of fear and greed and that trade the U.S. 10-year based on price trends as a very realistic alternative and as a way to hedge long bond exposure ƒ and following in the footsteps of what is termed the smart money.Ž Q „ There is a substantial risk of loss in trading futures and options on futures contracts.

Science fiction loves to expand our minds. It spurs us to think about possibilities, what could be, how the future might look. But science fiction loves to mess with our minds, too, by asking questions that challenge deeply held convictions about ourselves and our world. It pres-ents alternate universes. Things arent always what they seem. (Think of Neos confusion when he learned about the Matrix.) I recently watched two sci-fi films in the same week: World on a WireŽ and the new Total Recall.Ž Though these movies were made almost 40 years apart and are about as stylistically different from each other as you can get, they both question our concept of reality. It was interesting viewing them so close together.Improving a campy 1990 filmTotal RecallŽ is a remake of the 1990 film by the same name, which was based on the Philip K. Dick short story, We Can Remember It For You Whole-sale.Ž The original, starring a lumbering Arnold Schwarzenegger, was a campy movie, even back then. For me, once Arnold lands on Mars and gets through security, the movie falters. Though Im usually resistant to remakes because they rarely improve the original, I was curious about this one. After all, technology has advanced so much that the special effects could be so much better. Not only did the trailer look promising, I wondered how close it would stick to the original and how it might be improved. Many critics were lukewarm, but I enjoyed the movie thoroughly. It was non-stop action, a roller-coaster ride from beginning to end. The new Total RecallŽ includes a thrilling hovercar chase scene, as well as one using a com-plex system of elevators that move hori-zontally as well as up and down. Theres also a great fight scene in zero gravity. The basic story is similar, but director Len Wiseman changes things enough that you dont know for sure whats coming next. (The characters dont go to Mars, as in the original, but that didnt bother me.) Factory worker Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell) is bored with his life and wants something more. So he goes to Rekall, a company that implants false memories. Tell us your fantasy, well give you the memoryŽ is their slogan. Quaid wants memories of being a super spy. But during the procedure, something goes wrong, and Quaid is sud-denly being hunted by strangers and the police. His own wife (Kate Beckensale) tries to kill him. Reality and fantasy become blurred.At one point, a friend from work appears and tells Quaid that hes actu-ally still at Rekall, and everything that has happened is all in his mind. Quaid isnt sure whats real and what is implanted memory. Its not deep; its just flat-out fun.And I liked seeing the way they designed the future. Cell phones are implanted under the skin of your palm, so you can just talk into your hand. Place your hand flat against glass, and you can see the person youre talking with. In another scene, we get a quick glimpse of paper money „ and it has President Obamas face on it. And tattoos of the future are luminescent, glowing underneath the skin. (If youre simply inked, thats so 20th century.) I admit, I was pleased to see that people still read books in the future. Quaid himself is seen reading a paper-back copy of Ian Flemings The Spy Who Loved Me.Ž In Total Recall,Ž the future is a dystopia, with the gap between the haves and the have-nots an uncrossable canyon.New on DVDWorld on a Wire,Ž shot in 1973 by Rainer Werner Fassbinder, runs on a much slower pace. Originally made for and aired on German television over two nights, the movie, which hasnt been seen for decades, was recently released on DVD. Based on the novel Simulacron-3Ž by Daniel F. Galouye, the story focuses on the Institute for Cybernetics and Futurology, where a supercomputer with a simulation program hosts almost 100,000 people living in what they believe to be reality. The programs technical director, Professor Vollmer (Adrian Hoyen), claims to have discovered a great secret that would mean the end of the world as we know it. But the professor dies before he can tell anyone. Promoted to Vollmers position, Dr. Fred Siller (Klaus Lowitsch) learns that the simulation, used to predict market trends 20 years into the future, is possibly being used for some-thing else. Hes talking with Gunther Lause (Ivan Desny), the secu-rity adviser of the insti-tute, when the adviser suddenly disappears. No one remembers Lause when Siller tries to find him. Then, their contact unit in the simulated world, a man called Einstein, attempts to become a real person in the real world. Other things are revealed, and Siller finds himself being hunted by his company and accused of insanity and murder. Compared with todays films, the pace in this one is slow, but it kicks in and hooks you at the halfway mark. (Those with no patience might prefer the 1999 movie, The Thirteenth Floor,Ž which was based on the same novel but considered a flop.) Fassbinder worked with a low budget, so the viewer isnt really presented with a future that looks very different. There are picture phones and, of course, a simulated other world, but men wear suits with wide lapels, as was popular in the 70s, and many of them sport the long sideburns of that era. The women drift along in a Stepford Wife way. An obvious pre-cursor to movies such as The MatrixŽ and Avatar,Ž World on a WireŽ is very much a film of its time. (Mark Jenkins, critic for the Washington Post, wrote: Seen now, the movie seems as timely as it is outdated, its themes contemporary even if the cloth-ing and hairdos are anything but.Ž) In 2010, a restored version of World on a WireŽ was shown at the 60th Ber-lin International Film Festival and since then has screened at places such as New Yorks Museum of Modern Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Harvard Film Archive. Critics have been unanimous in their praise. Even though this odd, unsettling movie might be too plodding for some sci-fi fans, its an interesting counter-weight to Total RecallŽ and intriguing for the questions it raises.

The eclectic style of Florida Craftsmen shares the spotlight with brand-new works from the ArtCenter faculty in two exhibitions. The recent opening of The Florida Craftsmen Annual MemberŽ show, along with an exhibition of new works by Art-Center faculty, attracted 140 guests who got their first look at the Florida Crafts-men exhibition award winners. This is the first time that Florida Craftsmen, a statewide non-profit group based in St. Petersburg, has had its work displayed at the ArtCenter. The mission of Florida Craftsmen is to empower the skilled craft artists of Florida and provide a forum to elevate fine craftwork to art form status. Executive Director Diane Shelly spoke in detail about her group while guests chatted with the artists. Each year we try and bring our exhibition to a different part of the state so that new people can discover the amaz-ing quality of work being done around Florida,Ž Ms. Shelly said during the awards ceremony. The state is divided into districts so were able to make sure that all parts of Florida remain actively involved and are represented. This year, our experience with Lighthouse ArtCenter has been absolutely wonderful.

They had two young children, ages 2 and 3. Because they wanted to see homes in several neighborhoods, we had a lot of ground to cover in two days. As anyone with children knows, it is a dif“ cult task to bring your children along on activities in which they have no interest and it is especially hard for them to not touchŽ and not runŽ when they are in someones home. I was amazed at how well behaved these two children were. Things were going very smoothly. The “ rst day we viewed properties, we went to eight homes in the Palm Beach area. Nothing we viewed seemed quite right. Luckily, I had “ ve additional homes to view the following day. Two were waterfront homes and the other three were within gated communities. The “ rst home we viewed was on the river in Tequesta. It was a gorgeous older home with wide water views. It had a newly renovated dock and large yard with plenty of space for the family and their dog to run. We spent a long time at this home and, after about an hour, we were getting ready to leave. The children had been running around the yard waiting for their parents to “ nish and I had gone back to the car to gather some more information on the home. All of the sudden, the mom asked, Have you seen Tyler?Ž I had not and we both went back inside to look. As we walked in, I looked out back and 2-year-old Tyler was at the end of the dock, playing with some sticks he had found in the yard. He was throwing them off the dock into the water. Tyler did not know how to swim. His mother went screaming out the back door for him to get away from the dock. That scared Tyler, who had to grab one of the pilings because he was about to fall into the water. As the mother grabbed Tyler and things settled down, the “ rst thing she said was if they purchased the home, she would put up a fence and enroll both children in swimming lessons. As we continued our search that day, no one let the children out of their sight and Tyler didnt stray far. He was scared enough to stay close to his parents. In this case, everyone was safe and no one got hurt, but I have seen some close calls while showing property. About six months ago, I was showing property to a client who was deathly afraid of dogs. I had talked to the listing agents prior to viewing the properties to let them know about my clients fear. There were two properties where the owners had dogs, so I asked the agents to please make sure they were not on the property or in a location that my client felt safe. The agents both assured me they would take care of this. As we were touring the “ rst home, the agent informed my client that the dogs were in their cage in the garage. Everything was “ ne and as we were walking through the home, my client wanted to look in the garage to see the space she would have for her cars. I opened the door to the garage and both dogs came running inside the house. Very playful, they were as cute as could be, but began jumping on us. This did not bother me a bit, as I am a huge dog lover. On the other hand, my client was terri“ ed. One of the dogs was small, while the other was about 90 pounds. He jumped on my client. At the time, she had undergone knee surgery a month before and was still using a cane to get around. She used her cane to push him away. We got the dogs back into the garage and everyone was okay, but my client was very shaken. She was bitten by a dog years ago and remains fearful. Although the other agent thought the dogs were contained, they were not and my client immediately left the home very angry. Needless to say, we did not return and she would not even look at a home if animals were going to be present. I am writing about these two experiences because these are very real safety issues. I am glad to say that in these two instances, no one was hurt. We all hear about safety issues regarding swimming pools, waterfront properties and pets. When listing your property, be prepared to take th ese safety issues into consideration. Most owners do, but it is just a reminder that we all have different triggersŽ and safety should always be a top priority.

Reuse, the practice of giving items a second, third or even fourth life before they are recycled, is what Resource Depot hopes to encourage, with an added educational and creative twist. They collect items that are clean, safe and reusable, items that would have otherwise gone to a landfill or straight to a recycling center, and distribute them freely through membership to local teachers for use in creative proj-ects. Viewed in a new light, these items can inspire both students and teachers alike, as well as help supplement already stretched supply budgets in area schools. Everyone „ the donor, the teacher, and the stu-dent, and our envi-ronment „ benefits through the practice of reuse. Recognizing its work to creatively keep reusable materials from the land-fill, Resource Depot was acknowledged by Sustainable Florida on Sept. 13 with a Best Practices Award for a Non-Profit at their Annual Awards Dinner, held at the PGA National Resort and Spa. Each year, Sustainable Florida appoints a panel to evaluate nominated individuals, businesses and organiza-tions who exemplify their values of sus-tainable practices that are attainable as well as economically beneficial. This is Resource Depots first time being nomi-nated and recognized as the winner in the non-profit category. We are thrilled and humbled to be recognized for our efforts in educa-tion and environmentalism,Ž Jennifer OBrien, Resource Depots executive director, said in a statement. In the coming year, we plan to continue to expand our reach into the com-munity to encourage others towards sustainability and conservation of resources to benefit our education sys-tem,Ž Ms. OBrien said in the statement. Last year alone, Resource Depot kept more than 300 tons of materials out of the landfill through reuse. Resource Depot offers memberships to local educators, student field trips, and teaches public workshops on cre-ative reuse, as well as accepting a vari-ety of donations.

I am a collector.Always have been. What can I say? I started young. From the time I was 8 years old or so, my mother, Martha Simmons, was tak-ing me to antiques and col-lectibles shops and shows. We first started traveling throughout Florida in the 1970s, visiting shops in Lakeland, Naples, Sarasota, Tallahassee, West Palm Beach and Jupiter. The antiquing continued throughout Georgia, the Carolinas, Tennessee, Kentucky, all the way up to Indiana as my mother collected dolls, glass and furniture. I still have one of the first collectibles I ever bought: A turn-of-the-century Ingraham mantel clock, purchased in 1976 for $35 with money saved from mowing lawns at $3 to $5 a pop. And I treasure the Staffordshire pottery dogs my mother bought me as a Christmas gift back in 1977; in fact, I recently bought a second, smaller pair to display with them. Those four decades of collecting have led me to my latest venture: dealing in antiques and sharing my knowledge with others. I have written about my passion for antiques and collecting online and in publications across South Florida for nearly 15 years now. And I will share some of what I have learned during Trinkets or Treasures?,Ž set for Sept. 29, Oct. 27 and Nov. 17 at STORE Self FLORIDA WEEKLY ARTS & ENTERTAINMENTA GUIDE TO THE ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT SCENE A25 WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 20-26, 2012 FAMILY PHOTO Scott Simmons’ great-grandmother, Martha Bolender, seen here with her dog Nippy around 1938, was the first in a long line of collectors in his family.SIMMONS BY SCOTT SIMMONSssimmons@floridaweekly.comSEE ANTIQUES, A35 X AT THE MALTZ: Its a family affairCOURTESY PHOTO Emily Rynasko stars in Andrew Kato and John Mercurio’s show, “Through the Looking Glass.”At the Maltz Jupiter Theatre, think of this season as a family affair. And its not just kids stuff, either.The season, the theaters 10th, got an early goose in September with a well-received student production of The Laramie Project.Ž Next up: Through the Looking Glass,Ž a take on the Alice in WonderlandŽ tale by the theaters produc-ing artistic director, Andrew Kato, and his long-time collaborator, John Mercurio. What I liked about it was the childhood innocence of the piece, and how you can impose another story onto that,Ž Mr. Kato said of the piece, which will debut Oct. 12. That sets the stage for the theaters actual season, which gets under way Oct. 30 with Amadeus.Ž It think that whats great about theater is that its an opportunity to dive deep into your heart and soul and to talk about whats bothering you,Ž Mr. Kato said. So what drew Mr. Kato to the plays he selected this season? Overall the job is to create an interesting mix of plays and musicals and a season that makes sense together,Ž he said. Ive really enjoyed even peripherally hearing customers say, Oh, thats a great season. Thats music to my ears because basically its a good mix. They balance each other out.Ž How does that work?That happens on a number of different fronts. Its an interesting mix of plays and musicals and the types of plays and musi-cals that are within that,Ž Mr. Kato said.

Mitch wears glasses, owns a cat named Bella and writes poetry in his spare time. He speaks French, is deferential and polite, and „ it goes without saying „ is not at all my type. Which is why we can have brunch on the weekends and never worry about the fraught tension that comes with attraction. You know everyone in here thinks we spent last night together,Ž I whis-pered as the hostess led us to a table. Mitch rolled his eyes. Like that would ever happen.Ž While weve sharply drawn the lines of our friendship, thats not to say Mitch isnt looking for love. Sometimes I think hes looking a little too hard. Hes out on the scene practically every weekend night, chatting up women with a bold-ness you wouldnt expect from his meek exterior. Im really ready,Ž he said to me once, by way of explanation. Im just ready.Ž The problem with this readiness, as Mitch calls it, is that it sometimes looks like desperation. As we were finishing brunch, the hostess seated two young women at the table next to us. They were lovely in their pastel dresses, and I knew imme-diately that Mitch was lost. He barely spoke as I forked the last bites of eggs Benedict into my mouth. Hey,Ž I said as I caught him looking at one of the women for the tenth time in the space of two minutes. Cut it out.Ž We paid the check and headed for the door, but I stopped at the bakery counter. Do you mind if I buy something?Ž I asked Mitch. Sure, sure,Ž he said, not looking at me. Then, as I was choosing a pastry, Im going to go back and ask that girl for her number.Ž I turned from the counter, stunned. Why would you do that?Ž Because she was cute and, I dont know „ Ž Mitch,Ž I said. You two didnt even say hello. In what world would that be appropriate?Ž He danced nervously from one foot to the other. But what if shes The One?Ž I shook my head and counted out money. Save your energy,Ž I said. In fact, Id like to say that to a lot of my friends, the ones over 30 who feel time crushing in on them. Ive watched these friends grow more frenzied and turn to increasingly strange measures to track down their soul mates. Its like when youre looking for your keys,Ž a wise friend said recently when I told him this story. You always look in the weirdest places. You get frantic to find them, and the next thing you know youre looking in the freezer. Are your keys ever going to be in the freezer? No. Theyre going to be exactly where they should be „ probably on the table by the door, covered with a magazine.Ž If only Mitch and those like him would take this advice. Despite how we convince ourselves otherwise, the truth is that love is never where we least expect it. Its often right where it should have been all along.

Only a partscore was involved, but even so, the hand is highly instructive. At the first table, West led the diamond king, East signaling with the nine to indicate a dou-bleton. West continued with the ace and another diamond, which East ruffed. East could now have saved a trick by cashing the ace of hearts, but instead he returned a trump. Declarer then collected the rest of the tricks. He cashed the A-K of trumps and K-J of clubs, then crossed to dummy with a trump and discarded both his hearts on the A-Q of clubs to finish with 10 tricks and a score of 170 points. At the second table, the defense functioned far more efficiently. Here East played the deuce of diamonds on the king to discour-age West from continuing the suit, so West shifted to the jack of hearts at trick two. East cashed the A-Q of hearts and reverted to diamonds by return-ing the nine. West won with the jack, cashed the ace and continued with the seven. When dummy ruffed with the nine, East overruffed with the queen. Then „ as if declarer had not already suffered enough „ East heartlessly returned a heart, promoting Wests jack of spades into another trump trick. So the declarer at this table went down two „ 200 points „ which was four tricks and 370 points worse than his counterpart had done at the first table. It was not that South had done anything wrong „ he didnt. It was sim-ply that his opponents did everything right. Q

A28 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 20-26, 2012 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYhuge fan of the story of Amadeus since I saw the movie in the early 80s. Ama-deus is the only movie Ive ever pur-chased a ticket to then when the movie was over, I went back and watched it again. I was quite taken by the story,Ž he said. In the tale, the composer Antonio Salieri reflects on his life and on how Mozarts career overshadowed his own musical achievements. What I love about it is Amadeus is kind of a complex personality. In one way, were learning about a significant character from our history, but hes got such human qualities. Hes tragic and hes a bit of a child in his approach, which I think makes him accessible and likeable. It doesnt feel like a history lesson. Youre getting to know someone who you might consider „ well, cer-tainly I might like to have as a friend because Im a permanent 8-year-old child „ but also the inherent conflict in the piece because as much as its Ama-deus story, its also Salieris,Ž Mr. Kato said. Conflict is really what drives this story forward. It makes for an interest-ing evening.Ž For this production, the set will use projections, but the designer will not be visiting the theater. He will be designing in England, then watching from a Skype feed the tech from England,Ž Mr. Kato said. Its a long way from Salzburg to River City, but next up is Meredith Willsons The Music Man.Ž Returning to the theater to portray conman Harold Hill is Matt Loehr, an audience favorite the past couple of sea-sons in the shows Crazy for YouŽ and Hello, Dolly!Ž The decision to cast Mr. Loehr underscores Mr. Katos desire to develop the careers of promising artists. I think every theater should have a group of artists that they nurture and that they believe in. Matt is very young, hes in his early 30s, and I think he has very promising career and I would like for us to help him in that endeavor,Ž Mr. Kato said. And its not just Matt. Its directors and designers.Ž The show, which runs Nov. 27-Dec. 16, falls into the theaters holiday slot. Last year, it filled the cast of its holiday show, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,Ž with children selected through its annual First Step to Stardom auditions. Weve over the past couple of years been trying to develop family entertain-ment and encourage families to feel good about bringing their kids to some-thing around the holidays,Ž Mr. Kato said. The show will have a cast of 25, and will include children selected through First Step. Mark Martino, who led Beehive,Ž La Cage Aux Folles,Ž Crazy for YouŽ and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,Ž returns to direct Music Man.Ž Forget River City. The next show literally is all wet. Singin in the Rain,Ž a co-production with Fulton Theatre of Lancaster, Pa., will include rainfall onstage. Its going to be a feat,Ž Mr. Kato said of creating a sloped floor that will drain the rainwater. Speaking of that water, it will have to be maintained at a certain temperature, per Actors Equity rules. Is that why Mr. Kato is so hot for the show, which runs Jan. 8-27? I mean the score is so great and its familiar. Its a classic. You know, you really cant go wrong with that. Its probably our top-selling show this sea-son,Ž he said. Marc Robin, who led the Maltz productions of EvitaŽ and The Sound of Music,Ž will direct the show. That is lighter fare, at least compared to Doubt.Ž The play, by John Patrick Shanley, explores whether sexual misconduct occurred at a Catholic church school. Thats pretty heady for a theater known for its pro-ductions of musicals. Its important for a regional the-ater to have that broad range of offer-ings,Ž Mr. Kato said. Doubt for me is one of the most com-pelling plays that I have seen, in terms of really living up to its title. I think by the the end of the play, you really can have a debate about who was right and who was wrong.Ž The Maltzs production last year of John Logans RedŽ was well received by audiences and critics alike. And Doubt,Ž which runs Feb. 5-17?I think its John Patrick Shanleys best work, frankly,Ž Mr. Kato said. I remember when I watched it, even dur-ing the sermon that would happen at the very beginning, I remember having that conversation inside my head, I really hope this pays off. And it did For a four-character play, its jampacked. Its such great writing, and peo-ple enjoy being challenged.Ž And for audiences that prefer lighter fare? I think well have equal number of people who will come to us because of this piece,Ž he said. J. Barry Lewis, a nationally known director who lives in Lake Worth, will lead the production, and it is a point of pride to Mr. Kato that he was able to cast the entire production with South Florida talent. I wouldnt mind it being said that we always start with our Florida actors „ those who show up „ to get them work-ing first. In this case, every single role, we found what we needed right here,Ž Mr. Kato said. The goal is to do whats best for our audiences. Its shocking to me, though, how people from South Florida „ actors „ complain about not being cast then dont show up, because we would love to give them the job first.Ž That is thought-provoking, without question. But how like the Maltz to send audiences out singing with Thoroughly Modern MillieŽ? The show, a co-production of Paper Mill Playhouse in New Jersey, follows a 1920s womans madcap adventures as she tries to marry her wealthy boss. Paper Mills producing artistic director, Mark Hoebee, will direct the show. Among the challenges of this flapper fantasy: creat-ing a set that can be adapted from the Maltzs 554-seat hall to Paper Mills 1,200-seat space. Its a unique coproduction because you usually find a space of a similar size,Ž Mr. Kato said. But regardless of the size of the hall, the Maltz is trying to woo younger audi-ences. Most shows are accessible this year. Amadeus has some language issues and some subject, but for high school, it would be fine,Ž Mr. Kato said. Music ManŽ and Singin in the Rain also would be fine for young audiences, as would Millie.Ž And DoubtŽ would be fine for teens, Mr. Kato said, depend-ing on the student. To get those youngsters in the theater, the Maltz will offer $15 student preview tickets for Tuesday and Wednesday per-formances. With every generation, its an obligation to introduce young people to live theater, and I think Broadway is doing a great job, really over the past 10, 15 years, of creating work that is appealing to multi-generations, and I think that is here to stay,Ž Mr. Kato said.

We do the rest LIKE NOTHING YOUVE SEEN BEFORE FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 20-26, 2012 A33 +++ Is it worth $10? YesSlow-developing and oddly restrained, yet sprinkled with moments of brilliant acting and intense drama, The MasterŽ is a good movie with interesting ideas. But its not the Oscar contender many are expecting from writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson (There Will Be BloodŽ). Lancaster Dodd (Philip Seymour Hoffman) is the leader of The Cause, a cult-like group that promises to free ones soul from the burdens of its past lives so it can attain perfection in the pres-ent. Given that its 1950 and WWII veteran Freddie Quell (Joaquin Phoenix) is an alcoholic lost soul in need of salvation, he happily joins The Cause. In order to take part in something Dodd asserts can cure leuke-mia, there are rules: No negativity allowed. Act superior to animals. Do not be ruled by emotion. Most importantly, one must fully invest in processing,Ž in which Dodd puts someone in a hypnotic trance and prompts the person to contact his/her former selves, which in turn should shed light on present dilemmas. Question Dodds teaching and you are met with a temperamen-tal how dare you?Ž reaction, a typical holier-than-thou approach taken by leaders who actually believe the trash that comes out of their mouths. But Anderson isnt interested in judging Dodds mendacity or Quells loyal servitude, which later turns to abrasive doubt. Instead, Anderson observes them as men in a struggle, eager to either be followed or to find solace and meaning in something, any-thing. By the end, each man has closure, but its not the type of tidy conclusion audiences are used to. There are moments in The MasterŽ that rival Andersons best work (There Will Be Blood,Ž Boogie NightsŽ). Oddly, though, many other moments leave you desiring far more, and with the sense that Anderson is holding back his con-siderable filmmaking skill when its needed to enhance the story. For exam-ple, he ordinarily uses lighting and elab-orate camera movements to immerse us in the world of his characters, but here he lacks technique. Instead, he seems content to observe his characters and force us to focus on the central message, which is that we are all people and what we believe, at least to an extent, defines us. One thing we are used to from Anderson and do receive here is top-notch performances, particularly from Hoff-man, from Amy Adams as Dodds wife, and from Phoenix. Hoffman is charis-matic and likeable without going over the top as the master (note how he gets very defensive when Dodds beliefs are questioned „ a man who knows hes a fraud will naturally cross his arms and lose his temper without notice, and Hoffman captures this subtle change perfectly). Lest she be just the innocent bystander, Adams delivers strong material as Dodds wife, highlighted by one scene in a bathroom in which she takes control of an emotional situation. As for Phoe-nix, his slumping posture, uneven facial expressions and quiet desperation have you rooting for Quell to find something that will make him happy, even if hap-piness isnt possible for him. If anything about the film is Oscar worthy, its Phoenixs performance. Anderson denied rumors that The MasterŽ is based on the origins of Sci-entology in the 1950s, but the parallels are obvious. Doesnt matter, though, because nothing is condemned and noth-ing is championed by films end. Youll leave marveling at the performances and shoulder-shrugging the rest, mak-ing this an endorsement out of respect rather than heartfelt enthusiasm. Q LATEST FILMS‘The Master’ u s p m a m dan HUDAKwww.hudakonhollywood.com >> Phillip Seymour Hoffman has appeared in all of director Paul Thomas Anderson’s movies except “There Will Be Blood” (2007). For A Good Time, Call ++ (Ari Graynor, Lauren Miller, Justin Long) Two mismatched roommates (Graynor and Miller) find success in the phone sex business until one of them flirts with a different career. There are a few laughs, but its predictable and looks cheaply made. Rated R.

From these events, I want to teach my audiences about the treasures they have, no matter how small. That was a lesson my mother and I learned from my grandmother, Kathryn Bolender. Grandma cherished the figurines and memorabilia her grandmother gave her after she was married in 1937. She also saved treasures her mother-in-law, Mar-tha Bolender, had accumulated. Martha (my mother was named for her) collected glassware and silver, and filled her familys Queen Ann Victorian home in Indiana with the objects she found in Cincinnati and Indianapolis. Martha hoped to move to Florida and open an antiques business. But in 1949, she died at the age of 58, young even in her day. Grandma recognized that someday, her children would appreciate things their grandmother had sought out at shops and shows in the 1930s and 40s. She was correct. Grandma died five years ago, and my mother has remodeled the Bolender home in Fort Myers so she can keep Marthas 1920s oriental carpet, a 25-foot Sarouk, in the family. My aunt dis-plays the wee elfinware urn and Japa-nese dragon pitcher that came from Grandmas grandparents. And I proudly use Grandmas Towle silver and Lenox china, handed down from Martha Bolenders pantry. That is as it should be. The items may have value, but much of their worth lies in the memories they evoke. A couple of years ago, I purchased a figurine identical to one Grandma had patched together after her mother-in-laws maid had broken it. If I have to choose one, the damaged one is the one I will keep. Never mind that it has no monetary value; its value to me is priceless, and it helps me keep things in perspective. Perspective is important in these challenging economic times. The financial downturn has forced many of us to stop collecting. Indeed, the market for lowto middle-end col-lectibles has dropped, probably because theres a whole generation of would-be collectors ages 30 to 60 who fear for their jobs and are reluctant to spend money even on small items. In my recent forays back into the antiques business, many of my cus-tomers were not necessarily collectors. They were people who were buying an item because it looked good and worked well with what they already had. That is an important point. We should enjoy an item as much for its aesthetic and historical values as for its pedigree. Monetary value is important, and its nice to think of antiques and other col-lectibles as investments. But markets change, and what is popular now, may not be in a few years „ look at the millions collectors sank into collecting Beanie Babies that are now worth a fraction of what they were a decade ago. If they bought them because they loved them, they are fine. But they will be in trouble if they hoped to retire from the proceeds after selling them for a profit. When people who are clearing out an estate ask me about buying and sell-ing heirlooms, I always tell them to ask themselves: Five or 10 years from now, would we rather have the money we received for the item or the item itself? Of course, you cant keep everything, but keep in mind that most antiques dealers cannot afford to pay more than 25 percent to 30 percent of what they expect retail price to be on an item. They might pay up to half of retail if they know they have buyers for spe-cific items. Otherwise, there simply are too many costs to consider: insurance, storage, shop/space rental, gasoline and time. So remember that when trying to sell your items. And do make time to visit with me at one of the Trinkets or Treasures?Ž events. I look forward to meeting you. Q ANTIQUESFrom page 25 SCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLY The figurine on the left is damaged and has little monetary value, but it belonged to Scott Simmons’ grandmother and is the one that is most valuable to him.

In a collaboration with famed hospitality designer Adam Tihany, The Breakers Palm Beach will introduce a new drinking and dining experience it says will be unlike any other in Palm Beach, scheduled to open late fall. Designed to enchant its guests, the completely re-imagined space will be an ode to the classic Palm Beach cocktail cul-ture,Ž offering a lively, glamorous, unique experience. According to The Breakers, the bar concept will feature an extensive menu of food, combining small plates representing multiple cuisines with handcrafted cock-tails ranging from the vintage to the experi-mental, and a carefully curatedŽ wine list. Mr. Tihany, the creative visionary behind the restaurant designs of New Yorks Per Se, Jean Georges and Le Cirque 2000, will re-imagine the historic Florentine Loggia (formerly the Tapestry Bar and LEscalier restaurant) as a captivating destination, stylish and sophisticated, reflecting the highest quality service, products and ambi-ance,Ž according to The Breakers. He is acting as design consultant to Peacock + Lewis Architects in recreating the Floren-tine Loggia. Pizza for pups: Grimaldis Pizzeria will partner with Big Dog Ranch Rescue from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Oct. 21 for an adop-tion event on behalf of the Wellington no-kill shelter. The event is planned to support Big Dog Ranch Rescues goal to place 467 dogs in permanent homes between Aug. 1 and Oct. 31, 2012. As a finalist in the 2012 ASPCA $100k challenge, Big Dog Ranch Res-cue depends on community support to reach that goal and save the lives of hundreds of dogs. Grimaldis Pizzeria will provide each person who adopts a dog that day with a $50 gift certificate to celebrate his or her new slice of puppy love.Ž The event will take place at Downtown at the Gardens in Center Court right outside Grimaldis Pizzeria. John Boinis, Grimaldis general manager, said in a statement that anyone who drops off a donation of bedding, dog food or dog toys during the week prior to the event will receive a Grimal-dis $5 gift card as a token of appre-ciation from the restaurant and Big Dog Ranch Rescue. On the day of the event, he and his staff will provide free mini pizza bites and can-noli tastings while visitors mix and mingle with the pups of all breeds and all ages. Grimaldis Pizzeria has a longstanding tradition of participating in commu-nity events centered on the protection of animals,Ž said Mr. Boinis. We are very pleased to partner with Big Dog Ranch Rescue and look forward to helping them achieve their goal to save the lives of 467 dogs by Oct. 31.Ž Q FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 20-26, 2012 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT A39 VINO Chill out with some cool wines for the dog days of summerWill summer ever end? By September, I often feel as if the heat has always been beating down on us relentlessly and always will. The only recourse is to find ways to chill out.
