Help these students save “Sesame Street” and other programs SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY Heres the mission: Save the Street.Ž Heres the street: Sesame Street,Ž the ven-erable, much-heralded childrens show that made its public TV debut on Nov. 10, 1969, and rendered Big Bird and Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog and Oscar the Grouch part of the national lexicon. WXEL „ PBS for the Palm Beaches and Treasure Coast „ takes that mission serious-ly, so seriously that Debra Tornaben, the sta-tions vice president of development, brain-stormed a project to ensure that the Street remains on the areas map. The project, as outlined in a prepared statement, seeks to engage the next generation of supporters to help preserve public television locally.Ž Ms. Tornaben calls her idea A Course for a Cause,Ž which takes the form of a twice-weekly class at Lynn University in which 12 students work with Ms. Tornaben and Professor Gary Carlin to create an online Save the StreetŽ campaign. The class oper-ates under Professor Carlins direction. Dr. David L. Jaffe, dean at Lynn University and a member of the WXEL Board of Trustees, is also assisting with the project. During their classes, held Tuesdays and Thursdays at 4:30 p.m. at the university, the students use Piggybackr, a new fundraising online platform that they chose to launch the campaign. Its to save WXELs other PBS Kids educational programming, in addition to Sesame Street.Ž Each PBS station is responsible for its own funding. WXEL is required to pay for its PBS Kids and other PBS programming. The Lynn University students set a goal of raising $25,000 by Dec. 1. They are challenging com-munity leaders to match their efforts. The campaign had raised $4,695 as of Oct. 28. Donate at wxel-pbs-for-the-palm-beaches-save-the-street-fundraiser. WXEL helps prepare local children for success in school and life, reaching more than 4.5 million people from North Miami to the Sebastian Inlet. For more information call Ms. Tornaben at 364-4402.

Gov. Scott added his two cents from the campaign trail, pro-moting the introduction of copycat legislation to rival Arizonas over-the-top anti-immigration laws. Arizona laws permit a form of racial profiling based on how people lookŽ or sound. Authorities require anyone stopped or suspected of being in the country unlawfully to show proof of citizenship or immigration status. The laws are enormously controversial because fac-tory trawling with such an industrial size net is bound to catch a boatload of guileless fish. Still, there are those not easily dissuaded by the downside of state laws that presume you are guilty until proven innocent. Alabama zealots, not to be taken for sissies and always on the cusp of reinventing the Confederacy, enacted even tougher legislation. Its law requires all residents, including U.S. citizens, to carry a valid identification card. The penalty for failing to produce on-demand the I.D. is to go directly to jail „ the unfortunate consequence suffered by a prominent German busi-ness executive on the job visiting the Alabama-based Mercedes-Benz factory. Enforcement authorities threw back their catch with considerable embar-rassment and national injury done to the states business reputation. Florida business and community leaders took notice. Florida is similar to Arizona „ if you take away the humid-ity, about 50 inches of rainfall, and sub-stitute Arizonas monsoons for the hur-ricane season. Tourism in Florida is a $7 billion a year industry. Like Arizona, Florida depends heavily on immigrants to sustain its economy in tourism and agriculture. When Arizona went into full combat mode to ferret out its illegal immigrants, the nativist mine sweep created a good deal of collateral dam-age. The state suffered a significant loss of tax revenues, as well as hit of nearly a billion dollars in tourist and convention business spending. The anti-immigrant fervor infected Floridas legislature. Business and com-munity leaders reacted with alarm, see-ing a hemorrhage of dollars and a threat to the states anemic economy. The tactics of enforcement raised significant human and civil rights issues, too. The pushback was swift and convincing. According to the National Immigration Council, the Florida Chamber of Com-merce, big agriculture, law enforcement groups, advocates in support of the states substantial immigrant popula-tion, and even Disney spoke out against the proposed legislation. The concern remains that, come January, the battle in the state legislature will begin anew. Florida occupies a unique place in the nations battle over comprehensive immigration reform: It is a poster child for the demographics of race trans-forming the nation; and immigrants are already an important part of the states population and the political calculus for anyone aspiring to public office. This trend line is not going to change. According to the Migration Policy Insti-tute, the total immigrant population in Florida went from over 24 percent dur-ing the 1990s, up to over 36 percent after 2000. Of the total immigrant population in Florida in 2011, 23.3 percent were born in Cuba, 7.8 percent from Mexico, 6.2 percent from Colombia and 4.6 percent from Jamaica. Palm Beach County is 20 percent Hispanic and Jupiter nearly 12 percent Hispanic, according to Census Bureau data. President J.F.K. said in his book on immigration that, Somehow, the dif-ficult adjustments are made and people get down to the tasks of earning a living, raising a family, living with their neigh-bors, and, in the process, building a nation.Ž This is the challenge of crossing borders that characterizes America as a nation of immigrants. Past research by The Center for Latin American Studies found Florida immigrants often had lit-tle support to help them overcome lan-guage and cultural barriers and estab-lish themselves as community members. Communities commonly erect a virtual picket fence of policies and attitudes that isolate immigrants and prevent their integration into the community „ but not always and not everywhere. The Town of Jupiter in Palm Beach County is one of the exceptions. The story of how this came about begins several years ago. Numerous grant awards made by the New York-based Ford Foundation played an impor-tant role. Dr. Timothy Steigeng, Profes-sor of Political Science, Chai-Human-ities/Social Sciences, Wilkes Honors College-Florida Atlantic University, said the grants supported academic research exploring a variety of themes associated with immigrant communities, includ-ing Brazilian, Guatemalan, and Mexican immigrants in South Florida and else-where. According to Dr. Steigeng, the first Ford-funded study included the collection of survey data in the Town of Jupiter to assess the needs of the immigrant community as well as other fact-finding. The research findings had a dramatic impact locally.

Police brutality, mental illness and ‘The Memphis Model’Elsa Cruz filed a federal lawsuit in New York this week, months after police shot her husband dead. Last May, Cruz called 911 asking for help with her husband, Samuel. She feared he hadnt taken his medication while she was on vacation in her native country, the Philippines. Eight months, almost to the day, before Cruz was killed, not far away in Harlem, Hawa Bah called 911 to ask for medical help for her son, Mohamed. Rather than getting medical help, Mohamed Bah was confronted by the New York City Police Department. Within hours, he, too, was shot dead by police, hit eight times, once in the head. Mohameds sister, Oumou Bah, is suing the city of New York and unnamed police officers. While neither lawsuit will bring back the dead, they may prevent future deaths by forcing the New Rochelle Police Department and the NYPD to adopt an increasingly mainstream police practice for dealing with emotionally distressed people, called The Memphis Model.Ž In an exclusive interview Tuesday on the Democracy Now!Ž news hour, I had the chance to interview Hawa Bah and Elsa Cruz. They were meeting each other in our studios for the first time. Hawa Bah made annual visits to New York from the West African nation of Guinea to see her son, Mohamed. On her most recent visit, she was struck by Mohameds deteriorating condition. He had lost weight and had a cut above his eye. He was acting erratically. She sus-pected he was depressed, and wanted him to go to the hospital. Unable to con-vince him to go, she sought advice from friends, who suggested she call 911. She told me, When I saw the police car, I see him, I say, Hey, I dont call police. I call an ambulance. He say, No, maam, dont worry. In New York here, when you call an ambulance, we will come first. We will look at the person and call an ambulance. He said, Dont worry, he will be OK. The NYPD never told Mohamed Bah that they were there at his mothers request. Hawa Bah told me, He didnt tell Mohamed, Your mom say go to the hospi-tal. He just say, Mohamed, open the door. I came for you. She begged the police to let her talk to her son. Her attorney Randolph McLaughlin explained what happened next: They broke the door down, tasered, beanbagged and shot him eight times. The last bullet went into his head and had stippling around the entry wound, which says that that shot, which probably took his life, was at close range.Ž On May 26, Samuel Cruz, like Mohamed Bah, was acting erratically. Elsa called 911. She recounted to me what she told the operator: Theres something wrong with my husband. He needs help. Can you please send us somebody to help me to assisting him to go to the hospital?Ž She said, Your husband is harming anybody?Ž And I said, No, maam, no. Hes a very nice person. He never harm anybody. Could you please send us somebody, or whatever?Ž And then, OK.Ž The New Rochelle police arrived, dressed, as Elsa recalls, for war.Ž They forced their way into the apartment and shot her husband dead. Both the NYPD, in Bahs case, and the New Rochelle police, in Cruzs case, claim that the distressed individual lunged at officers with a knife. As Bah and Cruzs other attorney, Mayo Bartlett, noted: The thing thats striking in these cases is the fact that the police are not called in response to a crime. Theres no rush. Theres no need to take such immediate action.Ž This is where The Memphis ModelŽ comes in. Maj. Sam Cochran is a retired officer with the Memphis, Tenn., police. In 1987, police responded to a man who was harming himself, and threatening others, with a knife. The police killed the man. Community outcry prompted the mayor to call for a solution. They developed the Crisis Intervention Team. Sam Cochran explained to me, Its a community program (with) three main partnerships: law enforcement, local mental-health services providers and also advocacy.Ž CITs put a trained officer or mental-health professional on the scene, to de-escalate a situation. Since its incep-tion in Memphis, it has been adopted in more than 2,500 communities in 40 states, as well as internationally. The Cruz and Bah families are suing, demanding that the New Rochelle Police Department and the NYPD adopt CIT policies. As attorney Randolph McLaugh-lin summarized: The police say the exact same thing in Bah and in Cruz: He came at us with a knife, and we killed him. ... What was their plan? Did they have a plan when they broke in the door? Why did they break in the door? Why didnt they slow things down? Why did they aggra-vate the situation? In fact, the officers in all of these cases have not been trained in crisis intervention. Theyve been trained in the use of force „ deadly force. And if thats all the officer has at his disposal, he will use it.Ž 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 co-author of The Silenced Majority,Ž a New York Times best-seller. f t h a w a l amy GOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly The Republican push to defund Obamacare defied the strategic wis-dom of the ages. Avoid what is strong,Ž Sun Tzu advised, to strike what is weak.Ž According to Machiavelli, Prudence consists in knowing how to recognize the nature of the different dangers and in accepting the least bad as good.Ž In contravention of all these axioms, the defunders stormed the barricades at their strongest point. They exhibited no willingness to distinguish among bad options or appreciation for what was really achievable. At best, their approach was a high-risk, low-reward strategy. As it turns out, there wasnt even any reward. The shutdown fight has been interesting in its particulars but dull in its overall trajectory, which was so pre-dictable that the news stories on the endgame almost could have been filed in advance. Even bomb-throwers hesitated to light this fuse. Sen. Rand Paul never thought the shutdown was a good strategy. When the allegedly wholly impractical libertarian doubts your tactical judgment, it should be taken as a warning. Sen. Ted Cruz, the very able point man for the defunders, kept the strat-egy afloat longer than most people would have expected, but he could never explain persuasively the path from a shutdown to a signing cer-emony in the White House defund-ing the presidents signature piece of legislation. A key part of the theory was that, in the heat of a shutdown, red-state Democrats would buckle and join the anti-Obamacare bandwagon. Given the near-certainty that Republicans would be blamed for the shutdown, this was always fanciful. Republicans did the best they could during the shutdown. They passed rifle-shot bills out of the House fund-ing specific functions of government that put Democrats in a tight spot. They highlighted the idiotic excesses of the National Park Service. They hit Democrats for their unwillingness to negotiate. But all of this amounted to damage control. In the end, although polls showed the gap relatively narrow, more people blamed Republicans than Democrats. As the anti-government party that was forcing the issue, the Republi-cans were always going to have trou-ble escaping blame. Gallup and Wall Street Journal/NBC polls showed the partys favorability scraping bottom. On top of all this, the party went into the fight divided, with the House Republicans most enthusiastic about the strategy foisting it on their leader-ship. They proved again that, in the right circumstances, they can control the House Republican Conference, which gives them control of... the House Republican Conference. An initial plan promoted by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor simply to force a vote on defunding in the Senate and then move to a clean continuing resolution was blasted by defunders as empty symbolism. After a few weeks of political pain, Republicans ended up in the same place: The House voted on a defunding provision that was quickly pushed aside by the Senate, and it was forced to accept an essen-tially clean continuing resolution. Now, the same defunders who argued that Obamacare would be unrepealable beginning Oct. 1 with the opening of the exchanges are vowing to fight on against the health-care law „ as they should. It will be a long fight, requiring not just passion and principle but also a little strategic wisdom.

MARTY BECKER AND KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickEvery few years, when we get a new puppy or adopt an adult dog or have a foster dog spend some time with us, I have to dog-proof our home and learn some new tricks about interacting with particular dogs. You might think that I would have dog-proofing down by now, but each dog has been attracted to dif-ferent items or has done things it didnt occur to the other dogs to try. Our cur-rent new dogŽ is Kibo, a Cavalier King Charles spaniel were fostering until he is adopted. One of the first things Kibo taught me was to put away my shoes and to close doors. None of our other dogs have been chewers, but Kibo likes to examine things with his mouth in the fervent hope that they will be edible. He has gone into the closet to chew on my leather sandals (caught before he did any damage) and explored the walk-in shower. There he found and carried away a plastic razor, which, fortunately, he abandoned in the hallway instead of swallowing. He is also fond of a tiny, gold papier-mache box. He hasnt chewed it up or swallowed it, which he could easily do, but he likes to take it off the side table and lie with it. Its now out of reach, too. Despite his short stature, Kibo tries hard to be a countertop surfer. Weve learned not to hold or place food at any height where he could jump up and reach it. Our other dogs are also highly food-oriented, but they wouldnt dream of snatching food out of our hands. Kibo does more than dream it „ he tries it. I always push the chair in if I get up from the table because I can tell that the idea of jumping onto it to get at the food is running through his mind. If you are living with a Kibo of your own, here are some tips to keep your belongings safe, your house in one piece and your dog out of trouble. Q Use a crate. When you cannot supervise your dog, even if its just for a few minutes, put him in the crate to prevent any misbehavior. Kibo hangs out in his crate on his own and hes happy to go into it when asked because he knows he will get a treat. Q Tether your dog. That means he is leashed at your side at all times. This is a great way to learn the signals a new dog or puppy gives when he needs to go potty. It keeps him under your watch-ful eye so he cant get into mischief and helps build a bond between you. Q Get down at dogs-eye level to see what might attract the dogs attention. Electrical cords, small trash containers and dangling dish towels all can pose threats. Bundle cords and encase them in tough plastic covers, put trash contain-ers out of reach, and keep dish towels in drawers if your dog is attracted to them. Chair and table legs often look good to chew. Coat them with Bitter Apple spray to deter taste-testing (try it first in an inconspicuous area to make sure it doesnt damage the finish). Make sure no sharp edges or choking hazards are within a dogs reach. Q Most important, never underestimate the intelligence and inventiveness of dogs. They can learn to open doors, climb up on counters and desks using other pieces of furniture as launch pads, and crawl under or wiggle into places youve never imagined they would go. Be smart and put away or block access to valuable, fragile or dangerous items and secure cabinets with childproof locks. Q Evaluate your living areas to make sure your new dog doesn’t have access to anything that could hurt him or that he could damage. >> Emma is a spayed tan American Bulldog mix.

Q Jewish Federation of PB County names senior vice president for planned giving and endowmentsSPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY FRADKIN Faith*Hope*Love*Charity Inc. hosts the 7th Annual Take Flight Awards Gala on Saturday, Nov. 2, at Wycliffe Golf & Country Club in Wellington. The event is a tribute to those who answer the call of service. This year, the Marines of Lima Company and thou-sands more who have given their lives for their country will be honored. In a prepared statement, the charity said that every day the United States loses a serviceman or woman, often times with low to no media coverage. While many are focusing on our governments medical, intelligence, and financial issues; it is important that those who sacrifice daily are never for-gotten or properly acknowledged. With that in mind, this years Take Flight Awards will salute those who have assisted our veterans, active duty members, and their families through Stand Down House. The black-tie dinner, dance and silent auction will provide attendees an opportunity to experience the traveling national memorial and get a sneak peak at a new community designed to sup-port those who have served. At 11 a.m. Nov. 2, hours before that evenings benefit gala, a 75-plus motor-cycle escort will lead the tractor/trailer carrying the Lima Company Memorial into the Wycliffe Clubhouse. Organizers say it will be a sight to be seen. The V.I.P. reception begins at 7:15 p.m. and the award ceremony at 8 p.m. with dinner and dancing. The installation featured is The Eyes of Freedom,Ž The Lima Compa-ny Memorial, created by artist Anita Miller, consisting of portraits of the 23 fallen Marines from Lima 3/25. The Lima Company outfit sustained more casualties than any other deployed mili-tary group. Wycliffe Charities support FHLC Inc., and to date Wycliffe Golf & Country Club residents have donated more than 2,000 pieces of previously loved clothingŽ to the veterans and families involved with the Faith*Hope*Love*Charity organiza-tion. Stand Down House, owned and operated by Faith*Hope*Love*Charity Inc. assists homeless male veterans who are struggling, who have lost their homes and their ability to lead productive lives due to mental and physical illness, addictions, and/or other issues.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 31-NOVEMBER 6, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLYMALTZFrom page 1 of its lobby, add seats and offer a peek inside the regional theat er, South Floridas largest. The Green Room, named for philanthropist Roe Green, who kicked in $1.5 million toward $2.5 million in renovations that include 62 premium seats in the existing second-floor space to create a private upstairs club level. The second floor renovation includes a private entrance, glass elevator, expanded lobby, It truly is a transfor-mation that visitors will see as soon as they step inside the door. If they look up, they will see the glassed-in second-story space that is The Green Room. In the past, banners for the current season of shows here hung there. Look to the right, and there now is a large, contemporary box office space that is open to the lobby, much like a hotel concierge desk. Producing Artistic Director Andrew Kato said he had been sneaking mul-tiple peeks each day he was in town. But most of the main benefactors of the project have not seen it yet because they have been away for the summer. Roe Green was to arrive in Florida the day before the Oct. 31 ribbon cutting at the theater, timed to coincide with opening night for Dial M for Murder.Ž I definitely will try to get over before the 31st, but don't know if that will be possible. The whole thing might be a surprise!!!!Ž she wrote in an email. I hear that it is just beautiful!Ž The same might be said for Lynn and George Bovenizer, who named the club-level seating chamber. We left the middle of May and are coming back (Oct. 26). We have not seen any of the work in progress,Ž Mrs. Bovenizer said by phone from Penning-ton, N.J. Well be there next Thursday night.Ž They were not alone.Needless to say, we haven't been able to visit the new renovation, but from what pictures we've seen, it appears to be a super addition to the theater's facility,Ž Ellen and William Stamler wrote in an email from Ken-tucky. We're looking forward to seeing the real thing.Ž The Stamlers, who are providing furniture for the club level, wrote that they have been patrons of the Maltz since it first opened, and have enjoyed such shows as Same Time Next Year,Ž Man of La ManchaŽ and La Cage aux Folles.Ž We enjoyed the Burt Reynolds Dinner Theatre,Ž they wrote. We were disappointed when it folded, and had hoped that Maltz would be a worthy successor. We weren't disappointed.Ž The work on the Maltz comes a year after the theaters namesakes, Milton and Tamar Maltz, committed $7 million to boost the theaters endowment to $10 million. It is an impressive level of support for the theater, which celebrated its 10th anniversary season last year. We believe in having culture in our area, but also we really admire that theyre doing programs for children,Ž Mrs. Bovenizer said, adding she was especially looking forward to seeing such musicals as AnnieŽ and The King and IŽ this season. And it doesnt hurt that even with extra seats that boost Maltzs capacity to 617, the space still is intimate. Because its small and intimate, theres not a bad seat in the house,Ž Mrs. Bovenizer said. Its small enough. We dont go to New York anymore because Im just not into crowds.Ž Patrons who use the club level can bypass the lobby area and go directly upstairs to The Green Room, which connects to the open space above the mezzanine level, where those 62 premium seats will be installed. That space once was home to Burt Reynolds private box in the buildings 1970s-80s heyday as the actors dinner theater The farthest seat from the stage still is about 75 feet from the stage. In recent times, the theaters staff has used the space as a vantage point for shooting promotional photos of the productions onstage. Preserving that intimacy was crucial to the team of architects who designed the project. But they wanted to take that to the next level. The idea of creating these VIP seating areas was that they had to be part of the room yet distinct enough that they feel different,Ž said Mike Nelson, a partner in Designel, the architectural firm that has designed about 70 performing arts spaces, including the Kravis Center and Palm Beach Drama-works. Back in Burt Reynolds day, the boxes in what is now the club level were glassed off. I think the former arrangement with boxes or zones of area with sliding glass doors is very unusual for a proper theater,Ž Mr. Nelson said. A decade or so ago, the auditorium itself was reconfigured, and that upstairs space had been used for stor-age. But the design by Mr. Nelson and his Designel partner, Gino DeSantis, raised the roof of the space and moved all of the theaters administrative and mar-keting offices upstairs. We were able to elevate the roof in that area to give it a quite grand space. Even with an event on the ground level, people are not going to recognize the theater,Ž he said. The Green Room is a light-filled space. A grand piano is to hold court in one corner. The space can be used for private events and for cabaret performances „ actress/singer Avery Sommers is to give a concert there this spring. The eastern wall of windows offers views of the golf course and buildings beyond „ no ocean view, the staff laughs. Upstairs and downstairs, that glass faade has another important role „ allowing people driving along State Road A1A to see patrons having a good time at the theater and perhaps be inspired to check it out themselves. I think one of the fundamentals ABOVE: The Maltz Jupiter Theatre’s Green Room, named for Roe Green, will be a gathering spot for club level guests. The theater also anticipates using the room as a rental space for special events and for cabaret performances.LEFT: The expanded lobby is nearly double the size of the old space. Patrons no longer queue around the bar for restrooms, which are tucked into the back of the space (at center).GREEN COURTESY PHOTOS

Patrons will not be the only beneficiaries of the changes. I think the way the offices are grouped and will work together, every-one is going to be happy. There was a lot of space that just sat defunct for how many years,Ž Mr. Nelson said. The lines to the restrooms have been long, going back to the buildings Burt Reynolds days, and the architects addressed that. The new, much larger restrooms have been pushed to the back of the building, and there are now hallways into each space so lines no longer wind out into the lobby. There also is a stand-alone family restroom. I think the peoples movement through the lobby is going to be such a relief,Ž Mr. Nelson predicted. The designers g utted the original restroom and office space, then bumped the faade of the building out 18 feet, roughly doubling the size of the lobby and the bar, which now fronts that bank of windows. In a functioning theater, lobby space becomes very much a gathering space, not only for a performance but for rentals,Ž he said. In the old space, lines into the restrooms frequently blocked access to the bar, so revenues there should increase. There is money to be made in concessions,Ž Mr. Nelson said. That money will be key to the theaters growth going forward. After all, the design team, plus Mr. Kato, Finance Director Marie Dreher and General Manager David Harris, worked together to get the theater the most bang for its buck. I think its a very a lot of really dramatic change for a very conservative budget,Ž Mr. Nelson said. And fundraising seems to come as easily for the Maltz as the dramas and musicals it presents. The Maltz is fortunate to have a great success in fundraising, but its just a product of just how great they are,Ž he said. Q „ The Maltz Jupiter Theatre is at 1001 E. Indiantown Road, Jupiter.

On Nov. 1, NRK was to televise live, for five hours, an attempt to break the world record for producing a sweater, from shearing the sheep to spinning the wool and knit-ting the garment (current record: 4:51, by Australians). (In addition to the log, NRK viewers have been treated to live cams on a salmon-fishing boat and, for five days, on a cruise ship.) Said an NRK journalist, You would think its boring television, but we have quite good rat-ings for these programs.Ž Q The entrepreneurial spiritQ Extract of cockroach is a delicacy among some Chinese, believed able to miraculously reduce inflammation, defy aging and cure tuberculosis, cancer and cirrhosis. Quartz reported in August that Yunnan province is a Silicon Valley-type business center, where pulverized roaches can sell for the equivalent of about $89 a pound, and five pharma-ceutical companies have contracts with ranches that have formed the Sichuan Treasure Cockroach Farming Coopera-tive. (In August, a start-up farm in Jiangsu province was, police suspect, vandalized, allowing at least a million cockroaches being prepared for market to flee to adjacent neighborhoods.) Q Hipster Haven: Two fearless entrepreneurs inaugurated services recently in faux-fashionable Brooklyn, N.Y. Lucy Sun, a Columbia University economics major, began seeking work as a $30-an-hour book therapist,Ž to help readers find the rightŽ book to read or give as a gift, with attention to clients specific situations.Ž In Brooklyns Greenpoint neighborhood in September, the stylish Eat restaurant began reserving certain nights meals to be experienced in total silence. On opening night, a Wall Street Journal reporter noted one throat-clear-ing and a muffled sneeze, but barely any other human sound. Some diners were won over; another said it felt like being 50 and married.Ž Q Its expensive to go broke in America. Detroit, which most acknowledge acted wisely in filing for bankruptcy protection in July (in the face of debts estimated to be at least $18 billion), will nonetheless be on the hook for bankruptcy legal fees that could total $60 million under current contracts (according to an October New York Times report), plus various expenses, such as the $250,000 to Christies auc-tion house to price and sell some assets. A fee examiner has been hired to keep the expenses in line, but he charges $600 an hour. Q Medical marvelsQ A recent medical journal reported that a 49-year-old man in Brazil said he had recovered from a stroke except that the damage to his brain (in a subcorti-cal regionŽ associated with higher-level thinking) has caused him to develop pathological generosityŽ toward oth-ers. A Duke University neurologist told Londons Daily Mail that stroke-induced personality changes (such as hoarding) are common, but that this particular change appears unique. Doctors report-ed in the journal Neurocase that even with medication, this patients benefi-cence was unabated after two years. Q Blood clots can be especially dangerous, often requiring urgent, harshly invasive open-heart surgery to remove the clot before it can be fatal, but a team from UCLA Medical School reported breathlessly in September that a mini-mally invasive,Ž cutting-edge machine worked just as well: a vacuum cleaner. When a 62-year-old man arrived at an emergency room with deep vein throm-bosis, AngioVac lines were inserted in the leg and neck and sucked out the 24-inch-long clot. The patient was back home and full of energy a week later. Q Weird animalsQ A scatological force fieldŽ is how a Reuters reporter in September described the way ordinary house termites are able to increasingly resist extermination. They use their own feces to build their nests, and the pathogens seem to form a protective shield that attacks unfriendly bacteria trying to invade the nests. Q Pig Drinks 18 Pints and Has Fight With CowŽ read one August headline from Port Hedland, West Australia, after rampaging wild pigs stole and drank 18 beers from a campsite. Inter-national Business Times, summarizing recent research in September, noted that moose, especially, are attracted by fermenting apples; that prairie voles are prominent social drinkers (con-suming much more available alcohol when other voles are around); and that African elephants often turn violent to secure the fermenting fruit of the maru-la tree (although the elephant would require 1,400 pieces of fruit to generate the seven gallons of alcohol that „ if consumed all at once „ would match humans legal limit for driving). Q PerspectiveAmericans frequently cite the rigorous, above-board testing of prescrip-tion drugs as one of governments most important functions, and health insurance companies use such seals of approval in policy-coverage decisions. However, some consumers seem to prefer unorthodox, untested, unregu-lated products and, backed by lobby-ists for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, are challenging insurers for discriminatingŽ against these drugs,Ž especially in the game-changing rules of the new Affordable Care Act.

But the most powerful single characterization Ive ever heard came from Rabbi Jeremy Barras at Temple Beth El last Saturday evening, on the west coast in Lee County. Rabbi Barras had just concluded the weekly Shabbat by incanting the havdala with wine and candlelight „ the holy days sign-off prayer, if you will „ when he turned to introduce Dr. Robert Hill-iard to an audience of Jews and gentiles alike. Hilliard had agreed to speak to a chapter of Jewish War Veterans along with a host of others, including me, after a showing of the 2002 documentary film about him, Displaced: Miracle at St. Ottilien,Ž by John Michalczyk. The film is based on Hilliards 1996 memoir, Sur-viving the Americans: The Continued Struggle of the Jews After LiberationŽ (available at An author, professor emeritus from Emerson College in Boston and deco-rated combat veteran who practices no formal religion, Hilliard is now 88. You are,Ž the rabbi told him over the heads of the crowd, a vessel of holi-ness.Ž That immense peal of praise might be the rabbinical equivalent of the Medal of Honor, and it was based on the fact that then 19-year-old Private First Class Robert Hilliard, wounded in and after the Battle of the Bulge, became one of the most successful whistleblowers of all time, at least if lives are the measure. He and the late Ed Herman, a fellow Army PFC who later became an interna-tional financier before retiring to Palm Beach, saved thousands of lives in the weeks and months following the German surrender on May 8, 1945. But ironically that history of two young men „ soldiers who used their wiles and their immense determination to do good by exposing callous Ameri-can misbehavior to President Harry Tru-man and Gen. Dwight Eisenhower „ has become a near non-history. Why?The story does not appear in standard history books, although it occurred at a Benedictine abbey converted to a hospi-tal for refugees only about 30 miles from the brutal German camp, Dachau, and PFCs Hilliard and Herman personally saved many of the emaciated souls who had somehow avoided execution there. The story doesnt even appear in the massive collection of New York Times Front Pages, 1851-2012,Ž where editors left out their own front page, dated Sept. 30, 1945. There, a detailed report was topped by this headline: President Orders Eisen-hower To End New Abuse of JewsƒLikens Our Treatment To That of the Nazis.Ž Such is the fete of one of the most honorable whistleblowers ever to sound out an injustice. Heres what happened: The Americans let many refugees sicken, starve and die between mid-May and late fall of 1945. Army commanders withheld food and clothing from camps where the starving and desperate had staggered, on foot and wandering down the German roads, after liberation. Fearing disease, military police put the refugees behind barbed wire. In more fortunate camps, Army officers adminis-tered food at a per-person rate of about 600 calories per day, which was the standing order from Gen. Eisenhower. In some locations, American troops even traded food, clothing and medicine for favors from women behind the wire. Thats all on the one hand, and documented. On the other hand, PFCs Robert Hilliard and Ed Herman blew the whistle on it. They also stole food from their own mess halls, bought out the Post Exchange store where GIs shopped for luxury items, and snuck that largesse into St. Ottilien, past military police guarding the place. Then, in the 1945 version of an Edward Snowden action, the two young men bribed the printer on the base newspa-per where Hilliard worked. They ran off 600 copies of a vivid letter he wrote accusing the Americans of their own genocide, and asking for help. Finally, they mailed those letters past Army censors to every sympathetic person and organization they knew of on the eastern seaboard of the United States. A copy eventually reached the president, who investigated. The senior inves-tigator even visited Hilliards mother, and read the personal letters Hilliard had sent home to her about what he saw.That ultimately ended one of our most disreputable hours. By late fall, Army trucks carrying some of the 1,400 pack-ages of 40, 50 or 60 pounds, mailed from American cities and towns to St. Ottilien, were delivering the goods to the desperate. As many as 10,000 may ultimately have been saved there „ and American policy toward the displaced changed everywhere, too. It was an immense feat for a teenager with no power, no backing, and nothing but brains, heart and guts, and he was never officially celebrated for it. In a true sense Ed and I were whistleblowers,Ž Hilliard told me the day after his visit to Temple Beth El. Some GIs called us unAmerican and traitors for criticizing our countrys policies and actions.Ž But the two young men were lucky. If this had occurred today,Ž Hilliard acknowledges, as whistleblowers wed either be in jail, or seeking asylum in Russia.Ž Fortunately for all of us, he is still here to stand witness to what happened. Without remembering „ without telling and retelling what happened „ we Americans, all of us, become cultural and ethical amputees. Q t o t R t t a roger

Brenda knew Ryans industry was taking a big hit and worried everyone else in the room could see through the lie.But, that wasnt enough. Ryan had to tell the group that their son Bradley had turned down admissions to several Ivy League universities to attend the local college, preferring to stay close to home „ an out and out fabrication. Why was Ryan always building himself up, by stating untruths? Didnt he also worry that people would be turned off?But, then again, Brenda noticed that she, too, told half-truths. Shed told Jean Smith she looked fabulous in her new outfit, but in actuality Brenda hated the look. Brenda realized she was forever complimenting people for things she didnt admire. Was she so insecure she felt the need to continually flatter other people? Was she any different than her husband?Is it ever acceptable to lie? Well, that depends. On who youre asking, and, of course, the magnitude of the deception. Havent we all told the proverbial white liesŽ to save face or spare someones feelings? Weve probably all fudgedŽ the facts on occasion to embel-lish a story or get out of a jam. Fudging the truth often smoothes social situa-tions and may assure our popularity. I love that outfit!Ž You look fabulous!Ž We got stuck in traffic, or wed have been on time.Ž We may even unwittingly become complicit in teaching our chil-dren to lie, even though wed be horri-fied to admit it, as in Tell Aunt Mildred you loved her meatloaf,Ž even though the dinner was inedible. Sadly, we seem to live in a world where so many people seem to spin the truth to their advantage, with little concern for the far-reaching impact. Were skeptical when politicians promise us the world. We may assume salespeople will say anything to make the sale. Were not always sure we can count on those who matter the most to be on the up and up. Unfor-tunately, weve become somewhat jaded and accustomed to the above realities. Dr. Robert Feldman, a professor of psychology at the University of Massa-chusetts is a national expert in the study of deception. In his acclaimed book, The Liar in Your Life: How Lies Work and What They Tell Us About Our-selves, Feldman provides insight into how and why people lie and societys increasing tolerance for deceit. Feldman reports that people often lie to preserve their self-esteem. When egos are threatened, people tend to lie at increasingly more disturbing, self-serving levels. People may want to come across as more exciting and important. They may be seeking acceptance, with-out considering the long-term costs. He notes that men usually lie by building themselves up and to look better, as in I shot even par.Ž Women, on the other hand, tend to lie to make other people feel better, and in doing so, to feel better about them-selves „ as in you look like youve lost a ton of weight.Ž Sometimes, we agree with other people, and tell them what they want to hear, as a means of build-ing intimacy. This form of lying is not intended to cheat, or manipulate, but rather to show kindness and enhance relationships. One study found that the most common lie, told by both men and women is: Nothings wrong, Im fine.Ž This universal form of lying is often a means to pretend all is well, and to avoid delv-ing into more distressing conversations. And, then of course, so many people lie to stay out of trouble or to shift blame. They will make up stories to avoid conflicts, praying theyve been skillful enough to pull the wool over others eyes. Feldman asserts lying is a way people control their world and can be a means of getting other people to do what they want them to do. There are some who are so deceitful theyll con others with an alarming disregard for feelings or moral decency. Feldman found that his subjects rarely showed remorse when confronted with their lies. It seemed that, for many, lying was not seen as morally reprehensible in any strong way. Friends, we must be very careful. There is a cost to telling even the most benign untruths. Those who become accustomed to lying in the smallest of ways may graduate to more facile deceiving, without any qualms. As Feldman says, every lie has a cost, even if we are telling what seems to be a totally harmless lie. We know were telling that lie, and it causes a kind of smudge on the relation-ship.Ž Theres no question. Blatant lies are damaging to our self-respect and our core integrity. When we respect ourselves, and others, enough to tell the truth, we are taking important steps to be fully account-able. When trust is compromised, our relationships are undermined, and true intimacy is threatened.

HEALTHY LIVING l  b b d f y linda Brain may flush out toxins during sleep SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYA good nights rest may literally clear the mind. Using mice, research-ers showed for the first time that the space between brain cells may increase during sleep, allowing the brain to flush out toxins that build up during wak-ing hours. These results suggest a new role for sleep in health and disease. The study was funded by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, part of the NIH. Sleep changes the cellular structure of the brain. It appears to be a completely different state,Ž said Maiken Nedergaard, M.D., D.M.Sc., co-director of the Center for Translational Neuromedicine at the University of Rochester Medical Center in New York, and a leader of the study. For centuries, scientists and philosophers have wondered why people sleep and how it affects the brain. Only recently have scientists shown that sleep is important for storing memo-ries. In this study, Dr. Nedergaard and her colleagues unexpectedly found that sleep may also be the period when the brain cleanses itself of toxic molecules. Their results, published in Science, show that during sleep a plumbing sys-tem called the glymphatic system may open, letting fluid flow rapidly through the brain. Dr. Nedergaards lab recently discovered the glymphatic system helps control the flow of cerebrospinal fluid, a clear liquid surrounding the brain and spinal cord. Its as if Dr. Nedergaard and her colleagues have uncovered a network of hidden caves and these exciting results highlight the potential importance of the network in normal brain function,Ž said Roderick Corriveau, Ph.D., a pro-gram director at NINDS. Certain brain cells, called glia, control flow through the glymphatic system by shrinking or swelling. Noradrenaline is an arousing hormone that is also known to control cell volume. Similar to using anesthesia, treating awake mice with drugs that block noradrenaline induced unconsciousness and increased brain fluid flow and the space between cells, further supporting the link between the glymphatic system and consciousness. Previous studies suggest that toxic molecules involved in neurodegenera-tive disorders accumulate in the space between brain cells. In this study, the researchers tested whether the glym-phatic system controls this by injecting mice with labeled beta-amyloid, a pro-tein associated with Alzheimers disease, and measuring how long it lasted in their brains when they were asleep or awake. Beta-amyloid disappeared faster in mice brains when the mice were asleep, suggesting sleep normally clears toxic molecules from the brain. These results may have broad implications for multiple neurological disor-ders,Ž said Jim Koenig, Ph.D., a program director at NINDS. This means the cells regulating the glymphatic system may be new targets for treating a range of disorders.Ž The results may also highlight the importance of sleep. We need sleep. It cleans up the brain,Ž said Dr. Nedergaard.

ADVERTISEMENT Ask The Health & Beauty Experts Dif“ culty Smelling Question: Doctor, why can’t I smell?Answer: There are several reasons for a person to notice either a change in their sense of smell or a complete lack of the ability to detect odors. Metabolic conditions such as hypothyroidism, low zinc, diabetes can all play havoc with one’s sense of smell. Severe head trauma in which the olfactory nerves are sheared off will produce a complete lack of smell. When a patient complains of a bad odor in their nose when there is no reason for it, your ENT physician begins to suspect sinusitis and/or an infection in the nasal cavity. The diagnostic test for this condition is a CT scan of the sinuses and a nasal culture. The latter identifies the bacteria and what antibiotic will be effective. The scan pinpoints the location of the sinus(es) that are infected. Frequently with the correct antibiotic supplemented with steroids, the infection will clear and the altered sense of smell resolved. However, in the case where the patient has nasal obstruction from polyps and chronic infections, removal of the polyps and drainage of the sinuses is necessary. A relatively new procedure that can be done in the office under local anesthesia (and in our office light sedation if the patient wishes) is balloon sinuplasty. The beauty of this technique is a short recovery (2-4 days) and relatively painless post operative course ...and the best part, most insurance companies cover the procedure! For the first time we are able to dilate the sinus openings. promote drainage and resolve chronic sinus infections without the aggressive surgery and prolonged recovery of previous techniques. If you or a friend have difficulty with your sense of smell, call for an appointment today.

If you are about to enter into treatment for osteoporosis, it is critical that you have a thorough evalu-ation of your dental health and have most surgical treatment done prior to receiving any osteoporosis IV or oral medication. As a nor-mal process in our bodies, bone is constantly being broken down and then built up again. Osteoporosis medications interfere with the breaking down of bone, thus slowing down the bone-loss process. Bisphosphonates, a group of medications administered for treat-ment of osteoporosis, have caused serious bone-healing issues, especially in the jaw bones. IV forms of bisphophonates have a much higher risk of complications with dental extractions and dental implant surgery. It is imperative that you inform your dentist if you’re on any of these medications. If you have taken or are currently taking any medicine for osteoporosis and have dental surgery planned, you may want to submit for a simple test to see if you can safely be treated. The morning fasting serum CTX test measures bone turnover. Normal values are usually well over 300 pg/ml, and 150pg/ml is the benchmark. If you have a value over 150 pg/ml, you are safe to undergo dental treatment. If, however, your score falls below this value, you are at a higher risk of hav-ing complications with dental surgery. You can opt for a six-month drug holiday, which means you suspend taking the medication for six months and retake the test. If your value improves to over 150 pg/ml — great! If not, have another drug holiday of six months and retest again. Jay L. Ajmo D.D.S., P.A., Cosmetic, Restorative & Implant Dentistry Board Certi“ ed IV Sedation Osteoporosis and dental care Jay L.

Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center offers minimally invasive aortic stenosis treatmentThe heart is made up of many working parts, but one important compo-nent in particular is the aortic valve. The aortic valve normally has three thin leaflets called cusps. As people get older, calcium can gradually build up on the cusps, result-ing in stenosis or abnormal narrowing of the aortic valve. The valve also may narrow if the person was born with a heart defect in which there are only two leaflets in the valve instead of three. Symptoms associated with aortic valve stenosis are chest pain, fainting, shortness of breath, fatigue, heart pal-pitations or a heart murmur. The disease is frequently diagnosed during a routine physical exam when a doctor hears an abnormal heart sound. Tests to confirm the presence of the condition include an electrocardio-gram to measure the electrical impuls-es in the heart, chest X-ray to check the size and shape of the heart, echo-cardiogram to produce an image of the heart using sound waves, or cardiac catheterization to show any blockages in the heart. Adults with severe aortic stenosis usually require a valve replacement. Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center offers a cutting-edge minimally invasive procedure to replace the aortic valve. Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) involves the placement of a balloon-expandable heart va lve into the body with a tube-based deliv-ery system (catheter). The valve is designed to replace a patients dis-eased native aortic valve without tra-ditional open-chest surgery and while the heart continues to beat. This avoids the need to stop the patients heart and connect them to a heart-lung machine which temporarily takes over the function of the heart and the patients breathing during sur-gery (cardiopulmonary bypass). The procedure is done without any inci-sion through the chest and may result in a shorter hospital stay and a quicker recovery time. As the first hospital in Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast to per-form open-heart surgery, it is certainly fitting that the Heart Institute at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center would bring the TAVR procedure to our com-munity,Ž said Larry Coomes, hospital CEO. We are so pleased to be able to offer inoperable and high risk patients with new hope for a full recovery.Ž Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center is getting ready to celebrating 30 years of open heart surgeries on Nov. 9.

Q Scientist wins $1 million for tests on Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’sA scientist from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) has been awarded just over $1 million from the National Institute of General Medi-cal Sciences of the Nation-al Institutes of Health to develop a series of tests (assaysŽ) that could point the way to potential new ways to find therapies for a host of debilitating diseas-es, including Alzheimers and Parkinsons disease, heart disease, stroke and diabetes. Philip LoGrasso, a professor in the Department of Molecular Therapeutics and senior scientific director in the Translational Research Institute at TSRI, is the prin-cipal investigator for the new three-year study. The link between these seemingly disparate diseases is a protein known as jun-N-terminal kinase (JNK), an important contributor to stress-induced cell death in key cell types, including neu-rons, heart muscle cells and beta-islets (which store and release insulin). Mr. LoGrassos goal is to develop novel assays that will point to new drug can-didates and a better under-standing of how inhibiting JNK can prevent mitochon-drial dysfunction (disrupt-ing the energy source of the cell) and cell death. This grant will help us take kinase assay develop-ment and drug discovery in a bold new direction,Ž Mr. LoGrasso said in a pre-pared statement. The new tests, the statement added, should produce inhibitors that could be much more selective and have the potential for reduced toxicity. One of Mr. LoGrassos discoveries related to JNK is already in develop-ment with OPKO Health Inc., a Miami-based biotechnology company, for the treatment of Parkinsons disease.

A22 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 31-NOVEMBER 6, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLY Malayan tiger brothers leave Palm Beach Zoo for Jacksonville In May of 2011, three tiny Malayan tigers „ Jaya, Bunga and Penari „ entered the world, the offspring of the Palm Beach Zoos Berapi Api. On Monday, Oct. 28, the trio departed the zoo, bound for the Jack-sonville Zoo and Gardens, as missionaries of a sort. The mission is part of the Palm Beach Zoos effort to ensure endangered spe-cies propagation. With an estimate of 500 or fewer Malayan tigers left in the wild, the two zoos shared Species Sur-vival Plan (SSP) is considered to be of utmost importance to the endangered tigers. Both the Palm Beach Zoo and the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens are accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA). Although these tiger boys will surely be missed, we know that its time for them to start the next chapter in their lives,Ž Nancy Nill, associate curator for the Palm Beach Zoo, said in a prepared statement. It is time for them to leave the nest, and eventually be paired with females to start their own families.Ž Nill was a first-hand witness at the tigers births and remained in close con-tact with them during many firsts,Ž including the first time they opened their eyes, the first time they attempted to walk, the first time they were weighed and the first time they went outside. Being able to watch them grow has been rewarding,Ž Nill said in the prepared statement. Its been a great opportunity for us to learn more about Malayan tigers in general. Not everyone has the chance to experience what we did here at the Palm Beach Zoo.Ž The young tigers had been crowd favorites ever since their mother, known simply as Berapi, gave birth to them at the zoo. Berapi will remain on exhibit in the current Palm Beach Zoo habitat, Tiger Falls.Ž Her sons will join a state-of-the-art, 2.5-acre attraction at Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens called Land of the Tiger,Ž set to open in March 2014. Land of the TigerŽ will be a one-of-a-kind habitat where the tigers will be able to roam safely through-out the exhibit on a fortified trail system. Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens staff and guests are really looking forward to meeting the boys in person,Ž Dan Maloney, deputy director of conservation and education at Jacksonville Zoo and Gar-dens, said in a statement. Palm Beach Zoos brother tigers will be pioneers, as they have the unique distinction of being the first cats to call Jacksonville Zoos landmark Land of the Tiger habitat home.Ž Q COURTESY PHOTOThe tiger brothers will be paired with females and start their own families.

Usually, when an offer is too-goodto-be-trueŽ it most likely isnt true at all. This is a lesson that many social media users have learned the hard way. Last week, a dozen fake accounts for student lending giant Sallie Mae emerged all over the social media website Insta-gram. The fraudulent accounts claimed that, due to the government shutdown, Sallie Mae was offering a student loan forgiveness program that would erase the debt of the first 150,000 graduates who applied, according to the South Florida Better Business Bureau. Those who took these sites up on their fake offers were asked to provide pri-vate information, such as Social Security numbers and birth dates. This sensitive information can be used by the creators of these fake accounts to commit identity theft and other forms of online fraud. After the fake accounts were discovered, the real Sallie Mae updated its official Facebook page to remind users that the company will never ask for your personal information through social media sites. While many businesses offered special deals during the shutdown, wiping away the debt of 150,000 students would fall under the category of too-good-to-be-true.Ž These types of social media scams are on the rise. Many reputable compa-nies utilize social media sites such as Twitter or Instagram for marketing and customer service operations. Some com-panies even notify followers of special deals or promotions. As a result of this trend, there has been an emergence of fake accounts that scammers use to try to trick customers with phony offers. In general, be wary of offers that seem too-good-to-be-true.Ž There is a very high chance that they are false offers created by scammers. Also, remember that any officialŽ account that asks for your password, Social Security number, address or other private information via social media should be immediately red flagged as a possible scam. BBB and the National Cyber Security Alliance recommend the following ways to avoid being a social spam victim: Q Never reveal personal or financial information over email or on a social media site. Q Avoid following unfamiliar or unknown links or pop-up ads. Q Before sending sensitive information over the Internet, check the security of the website. Also pay attention to a websites URL to ensure it is the legitimate site you are looking for. Q Make sure to keep up with the lat-est operating systems, software, web browsers, anti-virus protection and apps for the best defense against viruses, malware, and other online threats. Q Report any possible spam to the appropriate people within the orga-nization, including network admin-istrators. They can be alert for any suspicious or unusual activity. Q If you believe your financial accounts may be compromised, contact your financial institution immediately and close the account(s). Monitor all accounts for suspicious activity.

A24 BUSINESS WEEK OF OCTOBER 31-NOVEMBER 6, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLY The Best Just Got Better www.FloridaWeekly.comf PRINT f WEB f MOBILE f TABLET Florida Weekly is proud to introduce our expanded edition serving Palm Beach and West Palm Beach, Thursday, November 7th. Wall Street expressions and buzz words If you want to make a ton of moneyŽ in investing, its best you learn the meaning of various expressions and buzzwords unique to the investment industry. At the core of investment slang are the words bull and bear, describing investors who are positively inclined toward the equity market and are likely to be invested or longŽ equities and investors who are negative about the equity market prospects and are likely to be shortŽ equities. If reference is being made to a market other than equi-ties, the market is specified, such as bond bull or bond bear. As most inves-tors are replete with opinions and emo-tions, they will generally fall into one camp or the other. Building on the bull/bear words, other expressions have been created. Perma bulls are always (permanently) bullish equities. Even when the markets are in a tailspin, perma bulls will spin the story to be a mild correction. Many older or seasoned investors lament the equity market and talk like perma bears, but oddly their portfolios are full to the gills and look like perma bull portfolios. For many bears, the thought of paying capital gains taxes is so painful that they never sell their holdings; they buy and hold. Bulls and bears can get into a lot of trouble, not just when they are perma-nently in an investment posture but when they get greedy either longŽ or short.Ž Hence the expression, Bulls make money; bears make moneyƒ but pigs get slaughtered.Ž It refers to those investors who are never satisfied with positive results and take unwarranted risks or, on the heels of a great return, waiting for even more return. Any rules for taking gains are overridden by greed. As investor bulls and bears often overreact emotionally, there is an index designed to capture their feelings of fear or complacency: the VOL Index or Vola-tility Index. If VOL is high, chances are good that bearish feelings reign. If VOL is low, there is complacency or strong bullish bias of investors. What strategies do bulls and bears use? The value investors are known for bottom fishingŽ or buying after a stock has fallen, but before it has made a dead cat bounce.Ž Some investors like an industry and dont worry about the specific stock selection; they are making field bets.Ž Those who are delusional might chase returns, in that they are taking disproportionate risks just to get a little more return. As bears and bulls have a positive or negative market opinion, they are likely not to be ran-dom walkersŽ who believe that equity returns cannot be figured.Investment firms will make more money in a bull market than a bear, unless as Goldman did in the crisis, they were selling their inventory of bad collat-eralized mortgage bonds and even creat-ing a shortŽ position. These investment firms are also called shops,Ž heralding to the days when their forefather firms were small shops on Wall Street. Its somewhat ridiculous that the word shopŽ even today applies to hedge fund managers, as they are largely found in high end multi-storied buildings in upscale Greenwich, Conn. „ far from the humble days of being a storefront. These hedge fund shops so cover the area from Manhattan to Westport Conn., that the strip of geog-raphy is called Hedgeistan. As some of the hedge funds have collapsed, buzz words were created out of their demise. Amaranthed means taking large bets and collapsing, as Amaranthe was an energy hedge fund Amaranth created in 2006. And that is not the only type of collapse, as ETFs can blow upŽ; a large number of investors suddenly redeem their ETF shares and the ETF must close. Both bulls and bears look at what the Federal Reserve Bank is doing as inves-tors have learned Dont fight the FedŽ and more often than not, the Fed has your back.Ž A positive market allows investors to sail with the wind; to be negative on the equity market when prices are rising would be akin to sail-ing into the wind. Its pretty hard to sail into the wind and pretty hard to make money shorting stocks if the bull is stampeding ahead. Bears and bulls always get squeamish with quadruple witching hours „ no, not Halloween, but the last hour of trading on a Friday when stock index futures, single stock futures, stock index options and stock options all expire. This happens on the third Friday in March, June, September and December. Now that is not the full longŽ of it, since expressions abound. Why are there such expressions? These are often short form terms that paint a picture that synopsizes a thousand words describing behavior, a story of success or failure, an unusual investment scenario, etc. New investors should not hesitate to ask seasoned investors when they speak a dialect of the English language that mystifies.

With that in mind, Top Ten Real Estate Deals presents five properties that come with stories that are on par with the scariest of Hollywoods horror homes. Of course, the folks at Top Ten ensure that intrepid buyers will be perfectly safe at home in any of them. For more informa-tion, visit Sultan Massacre HouseNew Orleans is the backdrop for the macabre tale surrounding the 10,000-square-foot Gardette-LaPrete Mansion, also known as the Sultan Mas-sacre House. The nine-bedroom, eight-bath home in the French Quarter was constructed in 1836 for a dentist who then sold it to a plantation owner. After the family fortune was destroyed by the Civil War, the house was rented out to a sultans brother. As the story goes, the brother had many lavish and loud par-ties. After one particularly raucous night, blood was discovered running down the front steps and everyone inside was dis-covered dead.The mansion, now divided up into six apartments, is on the market for $2.5 million. Q Ma Barkers Place The infamous house where Kate MaŽ Barker and her son Fred made their last stand against a barrage of FBI gunfire can be yours for $889,000. The place comes with the original, circa 1935 furni-ture in place, and rumor has it that Mas ghost wont budge either (of course, the bullet holes have been patched and the blood cleaned up). Situated on the lovely Lake Weir in Ocklawaha, Fla., the nine-acre prop-erty has more than enough room for the whole gang. Q Colorado Ghost Town There was nothing supernatural about Uptop, Colo., but the place was an actual ghost town when two sisters from Boston bought the empty hamlet in 2000. After the sisters spent lots of time and money restoring the town to its former glory, the ghosts have left and the sisters are selling. The 250-acre package comes complete with a train depot, dance hall, saloon, chapel, meeting hall and the log cabin where the sisters lived while they restored the Old West site. Its offered for $2 million. Q Historic Buckeye Haunted Inn At more than 200 years old, The Buxton Inn is Ohios oldest continu-ally running bed and breakfast. Its also considered one of Ohios most beautiful haunted spots.The property has 10 buildings, five of which comprise the main inn, and five more that have additional rooms. After a stroll through the courtyard, guests fall asleep to the sounds of disembodied foot-steps walking the halls and doors opening and closing by themselves. For $3.9 mil-lion, you can be the next innkeeper.Q Diamond in the RoughThe Carleton Island Villa in New York was built in 1895 f or the president of Remington Arms and Typewriter Co. Today, uninhabited for more than 60 years, it resembles something from Stephen Kings imagination. The interior has been gutted (by ghosts?), but the stone outer structure sits solidly on an island of 6.9 acres. For a mere $495,000, the buyer willing to make this piece of history into a grand restoration project can turn it from a nightmare into a dream home.

Today, the rivalries are ridi-culed in political cartoons and on TV sitcoms. In the past, political differenc-es were shown in Staffordshire figures, slogans and drawings. The rivalry in Britain in the last half of the 19th century between the prime ministers Benjamin Disraeli (1804-1881) and William Glad-stone (1810-1898) was notable. Both men were skilled politicians, but they hated each other. The two men came from very different backgrounds. Gladstone was a rich and deeply religious upper-middle-class man educated at Eton and Oxford. Disraeli never attended a uni-versity and was a wild youth who lived extravagantly. He wrote novels, accu-mulated debts and then married a rich widow. Gladstone, a liberal (Whig), and Disraeli, a conservative, disagreed on both social and international policies. They called each other names, opposed each other in numerous campaigns and were able to defeat each other at times. The repeal of the Corn Laws, which lowered tariffs, the purchase of stock in the Suez Canal, the favor of Queen Vic-toria, and other major problems were part of their battles. Political cartoons of the time often showed the two men fighting. There were even toys that pic-tured the men wrestling. Several ver-sions of the toy have been sold through the years. In 2013, Jacksons Auctions sold a pair of 8-inch-high Gladstone and Disraeli figures in their original box for $180. Q: My maple armchair is marked A Genuine Cushman Colonial Creation made in Bennington, Vt.Ž The words are printed in several typestyles inside an oval. How old is it? A: H.T. Cushman (1844-1922) was an inventor who created things like the pencil eraser, ink eradicator and some early types of roller skates. He started a mail-order company and soon was making and selling things, including furniture. By 1899 he had incorporat-ed his company and was making Mis-sion furniture. Later he made smoking stands and maple breakfast-room sets. Your chair probably is from one of his breakfast-room sets. By the 1950s, the company was making birch furniture in the Colonial style. The company was later sold and finally closed in 1980. Q: I have a red, white and blue metal sign that reads Hudson, Service Sta-tion, Essex.Ž Theres a blue triangle on the sign that says Hudson Super SixŽ and a red hexagon that reads Essex Motor Cars.Ž The sign is 13 inches high and 27 inches wide. What is it worth? A: Hudson Motor Car Co. was founded in 1909. Its Super Six engine was introduced in 1916. The Essex was a less expensive Hudson car introduced in 1919 and made until 1932. Hudson merged with Nash in 1954 and became American Motors Corp. Automobile-related advertising of all kinds is col-lected. Signs can sell for hundreds or even thousands of dollars, depending on age, rarity and condition. Your sign, from the 1920s, could sell for $500 or more. Q: I have a McCoy cookie jar that belonged to my grandmother. Its shaped like an apple and is yellow with red highlights. The lid has a stem and leaf on the top. Id like to know how old it is and what it might be worth. A: McCoy pottery was made in Roseville, Ohio. The company made cookie jars from about 1940 until the pottery closed in 1990. Its apple cookie jar was made from about 1950 to 1964. It was also made in turquoise, a rare color that sells for more. The value of your apple cookie jar is about $100. Q: I have a picture postcard showing the original photograph of President Franklin Roosevelt signing the Social Security Act on Aug. 14, 1935. Its signed by James Roosevelt, FDRs oldest son. Does it have any value? A: Thousands of copies of this photograph were sent out by the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare in a mass mailing in 1985, the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Social Security Act into law. The committee was founded by James Roosevelt in 1982. The committee still is in existence and works to prevent cuts to Social Security and Medicare. The mailing was part of a fundrais-ing effort by the committee. The same photograph also was included in a 1990 mailing. So, your picture postcard is a common one and not of much interest to collectors. Q „ Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

The toy and original box sold for $180 at Jackson’s Auctions in Cedar Falls, Iowa. Most people today would not recognize the pair, Disraeli and Gladstone, as famous British politicians during the reign of Queen Victoria.

The premise is this: a husband plots to kill his unfaithful wife for money. But what happens if that plan goes awry? And the challenge is this: how do you transport your audience to England some 60 years ago? Ask J.

B2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 31-NOVEMBER 6, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLY SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSAn old friendship with a surprising futureI recently received a message on Facebook „ that great provider of updates and enabler of stalking „ from my best guy-friend in middle school, Mark. We knew each other during the turbulent years of early adolescence, when the transition from childhood to young adulthood is in full awkward bloom. Mark had been my best friend for three years, my note-sharer, my late-night phone caller, my sidekick at haunted houses and school dances. Except for one very sloppy kiss on the bus ramp in sixth grade, we man-aged to maintain a platonic friend-ship. But at the end of eighth grade, our relationship evaporated. Mark went to a performing arts high school and I attended a super cerebral school, and life went on like so much water under the bridge. Then, this summer „ his message on Facebook. Mark saw I had passed through New York and he suggested we meet for coffee the next time I came to the city. For a second I was delighted. Then I started to worry. What would we talk about, this old friend and I? Could we reinhabit our former closeness? What sparks might still be there? I considered combing through his Facebook page, searching for rel-evant information. Was he married? Did he have children? What did he do for a living? I knew nothing about the last 20 years of his life. But I decided to let things unfold naturally, to see what he would reveal in person. I will say this though: His Facebook profile picture was absolutely gor-geous. So when I found myself in New York at the beginning of the month, I dropped him a note. Was he still interested in that coffee? He was, as it turns out, and he suggested we meet in a hip neighborhood place. I recognized him as soon as I walked through the door. He was taller than his 13-year-old self and his chest and shoulders were broader. He seemed more confident, more at ease in his skin than he had been two decades ago. Yet though he possessed a mans good looks and had grown into a fine, strong body, there was still something of Marks middle school self there that I recognized. Which must have been why it was so easy for me to talk to him, why I found myself slipping into the comfortable rhythms of our long-ago friendship. He made me laugh in a way that I rec-ognized, and I relaxed at the familiar ease and substance of him. Here was my long-gone friend suddenly feeling like my BFF. And he was so hand-some „breathtaking, really „ that I couldnt help but think back to that sixth grade smooch. I was actually turning it over in my mind when Mark mentioned that he had been single for some time. Since my last boyfriend,Ž he said.Boyfriend?I must have looked startled, because Mark smiled wide. Through my disappointment, I smiled back. Maybe its true that the past is uninhabitable. But this new friend-ship? Well, thats something to explore.

B4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 31-NOVEMBER 6, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLYowner of Kretzer Piano in Jupiter and founder of the Kretzer Piano Music Foundation. I never dreamed when I started thinking about this project they would be this elaborate.Ž Ms. Kretzer said most of the artists have spent 100 hours or more trans-forming their canvases of wood „ for a $300 stipend. Whats that, 30 cents an hour?Ž she laughed. With assistance from Lighthouse ArtCenter Executive Director Katie Deits, Ms. Kretzer selected the artists from a group of 35 who responded to a call for entries. Each had to describe the reason for wanting to contribute his or her talents, the meaning behind the proposed artwork and pictures of the overall concept. There werent any really bad ones in the group,Ž Ms. Kretzer said. The piano-painting participants who were picked are Julie Beaumont, Caron Bowman, Liz Brice, Karen Chandler, Joseph Dzwill, Sil-vana Frontera, Carla Golembe, Emmanuel Gonzales, Courtney Hess, Sharon Kos-koff, Eric Kucera, Eduardo Mendieta, Frank Navarrete, Holly Rutchey, Alicia Stamm, Amanda Turner and Nadia Utto. Their finished products are as diverse as they are extraordinary. A piano owned by the family of late baseball great and South Florida resi-dent Gary Carter sports a spectacular New York Mets motif painted by Mr. Navarrete and is titled The Kid.Ž Mr. Navarrete also painted a second piano and focused on another piece of Flori-da lore, the American alligator, named Charlie. Ms. Fronteras Melodic Liberation is a color-saturated riot of music notes and other spunky shapes, while Ms. Turners Curiouser & Curiouser features a phan-tasmal Alice in Wonderland theme. All of the pianos will be revealed at the kickoff party, set for 7 to 9 p.m. Highlights include Keys to the Cities cocktails, a steel-drum group and a marching band, and the tickling of all 1,584 ivories by local pianists dressed in black tails and ball gowns. Before that happens, the artist of each piano is going to dress like their piano,Ž Ms. Kretzer said. Some of them even bought material to make clothing to match.Ž From Nov. 2 through 17, the melodic masterpieces will go on display at pub-lic locations throughout the county for all to play. If youre 90 years old, you can sit down and belt out a tune that you havent played in forever,Ž Ms. Kretzer said. Those with an inkling to play anything from ChopsticksŽ to Fr EliseŽ can look for the pianos at Arts Garage in Delray Beach, the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County in Lake Worth, Worth Avenues Via Amore on Palm Beach, Downtown at the Gardens in Palm Beach Gardens and assorted spots in West Palm Beach, including City Center, CityPlace, the Kravis Center, Palm Beach Dramaworks and the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium. The main reason theyre outside for the public is so the public can experi-ence playing,Ž Ms. Kretzer said. I think my biggest nightmare is going to be to try to sleep when there are rainy nights. The thought of having any of the artwork damaged is scary.Ž At night, the precious pianos will be covered, locked and secured. The benches either will be carried inside or chained to the piano. Even the benches are phenomenal pieces of art,Ž Ms. Kretzer said. After the last keys are played, the pianos will move to their new homes at local childrens charities and commu-nity organizations. Itll be an absolute miracle if we break even, but if it gets the word out there about the foundation, and it does good things for the childrens charities, then it accomplished what the foun-dation wants to accomplish, which is bringing music into the lives of children who cant afford it.Ž Q >>What: Keys to the Cities kickoff party >>When: 7 to 9 p.m. Nov. 1 >>Where: Lake Pavilion, 101 S.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 31-NOVEMBER 6, 20133 B5 CONTRACT BRIDGEExtrasensory Perception BY STEVE BECKERMany contracts fail because of an unlucky lie of the cards, but some of them can be salvaged by careful play. Assume youre declar-er at four hearts and West leads a diamond. You should feel confident of making the contract, since the only thing that can beat you is the high-ly unlikely possibility that West has all three missing trumps and that East has the ace of spades. The odds against both occurring in the same deal are about 15-to-1. Howev-er, when you win the diamond lead with the queen and play a trump to the ace, East shows out, and your 15-to-1 odds drop enormously. In fact, it now seems certain you will go down one if West has the ace of spades. But when you consider the matter more carefully, you realize theres a good chance of making the contract even if East has the spade ace. So you continue with the king of trumps, then cash the A-K of clubs and ruff a club. Next you overtake the king of diamonds with dummys ace and lead the nine of clubs. When East produces the queen, you heave a huge sigh of relief as well as a spade. This is the first trick for the defense, and you are now sure to make the con-tract. East has to return either a spade or a diamond. In the former case, dummys king becomes a trick; in the latter, youll discard another spade from your hand as you ruff in dummy. The outcome demonstrates how good play can sometimes overcome bad luck „ provided you keep a cool head when things go wrong. Q

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 31-NOVEMBER 6, 20133 B9 Palm Beach County guide to the ARTS. ARTS PREVIEW is the insiders guide to the highlights of the seasons best performing and fine arts events. Be a part of this special section and reach your target audience.Publication Date:Thursday, November 21, 2013 Advertising Deadline:Wednesday, November 13, 2013To advertise, contact your account executive or call 561.904.6470 ARTS PREVIEW +++ Is it worth $15 (3D)? YesIts as fair a question as any: Why do we eat turkey on Thanksgiving rather than, say, chicken or pork? Tofurkey, turducken and other alternatives aside, it does seem like turkeys get a raw deal on an annual basis. At long last, Free BirdsŽ is here to give voice (literally) to tur-keys that want to live. With any luck, these turkeys will get their kind off the Thanks-giving menu forever. OK, maybe thats an exaggeration. But Free Birds,Ž nicely animated by Reel FX Creative Studios and distributed through Relativity Media, does present an enjoyable hypothetical scenario with good laughs and a good heart. Blue-headed turkey Reggie (Owen Wilson) is dif-ferent from the mind-less redheads in his flock, and he knows it. Hes also lucky enough to be presidentially pardoned during Thanksgiving season, which leads him to Camp David to watch tele-novelas and eat pizza. That is, until hes kidnapped by Jake (Woody Harrelson), a wild turkey with a crazy idea: He wants to travel back in time to the first Thanksgiving „ Plym-outh Colony, 1621 „ and change history so turkeys arent on the menu. After a cool time travel sequence in a machine called S.T.E.V.E. (George Takei) gets them there, they meet the leader of the local flock, Broadbeak (Keith David), his son Ranger (Jimmy Hayward, who is also the director) and his daughter Jenny (Amy Poehler). Predictably, alpha males Jake and Ranger battle for leadership roles while Reggie and Jenny fall in love. Although the premise is clever and fun, Free BirdsŽ isnt winning any awards for originality in terms of story arcs. The animation is crisp and clear with vivid 3D, and the images range from present day to outer space to the dis-tant past. There are enjoyable moments throughout, particularly when Ms. Poehler comes on with her impeccable timing and wit. Mr. Wilson does well in the lead role, Mr. Harrelson is solid as the flashier but less grounded co-lead, and kudos to Colm Meaney (Law Abid-ing CitizenŽ) for nicely snarling his way along as the villain, Captain Standish. Watching the film, you quickly become curious how itll end. Convention dictates that the heroes, the turkeys, achieve their goal at the end of the 91-minute running time, but for them to do that it would mean turkeys are no lon-ger eaten at Thanks-giving, which defies a 150-year-old (see below) American tra-dition. How it all plays out works for the movie, if not reality. Speaking of reality, although the PG-rated film is perfectly fine for youngsters, there might be some little ones who have trouble differentiating reality from fantasy „ and if so, those children might not want to eat turkey this Thanksgiving. Thus is the risk par-ents take with their impressionable kids and Free BirdsŽ: Although its very enjoyable and good for a smile, theres a clear message that it doesnt have to be turkeys on Thanksgiving day, so adults should be prepared to address this after the film. Q LATEST FILMS‘Free Birds’ s i a a a v dan >>President Lincoln made Thanksgiving an of cial U.S. holiday in 1863. CAPSULESBad Grandpa ++ (Johnny Knoxville, Jackson Nicoll, Spike Jonze) Saddled with his young grandson (Mr. Nicoll), 86-year-old Irving Zisman (Mr. Knoxville) decides to drive the boy across country to the boys father. Its essentially a sketch comedy with Mr. Knoxville and Mr. Nicoll having fun with real people via hidden camera, but its never insulting to innocent individuals and is reason-ably amusing throughout. Rated R.Escape Plan ++ (Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jim Caviezel) Ray Breslin (Mr. Stallone) makes his living breaking out of high-security prisons, but for his lat-est adventure hell need the help of a fellow inmate (Mr. Schwarzenegger) to topple a smarmy warden (Mr. Caviezel). The action isnt spectacular, but its great fun to watch Mr. Stallone and Mr. Schwarzenegger banter. If you dont see this one at the theater, its worth the rental at home. Rated R.The Fifth Estate +++ (Benedict Cumberbatch, Daniel Bruhl, David Thewlis) The first three years of the controversial website WikiLeaks are chronicled in director Bill Condons (DreamgirlsŽ) latest.

A family situation runs into an unexpected complication. Q SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A cutting remark in the workplace needs to be handled with finesse. Remember: How you respond could determine the depth of support you gain from colleagues.

Fortunately, it lifts by weeks end, in time to make an informed decision.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 31-NOVEMBER 6, 20133 B13 of the physicality. When youre wearing a dress that is a 1953 dress, it so dictates how you move, how you sit, how you play. Its the gentlemen, weve got the one issue for instance, is working with a pipe, which is not a today-type thing.Ž There is a lot thats period-driven in this show. People did have a different way of moving and talking. Certainly for me as a native Brit, the text carries within it a period style in terms of its speech, and we also quite naturally are gravitating toward it,Ž said the very British Colin McPhillamy, who plays Hubbard. Certainly I feel as though Im in Leicester Square circa the mid-1950s and Im looking around say-ing, Did I really leave England? Am I really in South Florida? I suddenly feel as though I am surrounded by black-and-white film people.Ž Its not just the inflections. Its the whole notion of the period. I was just talking to (co-star Jim Ballard) before this about how in one of the very last scenes he still refers to me as Mrs. Wendice, and weve had an affair,Ž said Claire Brownell, the Margot of this production. But because someone else is present, he refers to me by my last name. Its a different level of formality.Ž And one that was part of a different reality, even in the Hitchcock film. Of course, in the famous Hitchcock movie they all speak in a way in which nobody ever did speak, which is some-where off the coast of Boston,Ž said the very British Mr. McPhillamy. A Hollywood British, so everyone could understand it,Ž Mr. Lewis said. For marketing purposes,Ž Mr. McPhillamy said drily. Part of the beauty of doing a show like Dial MŽ is that it has not been pro-duced recently in South Florida. You say Dial M for Murder and people will say, Oh, I loved that. But they cant tell you anything about it,Ž Mr. Lewis said. People will remember the title and the movie and the Grace Kelly, but it will be a re-engagement.Ž It was a similar situation with much of the Maltz cast, who either never had seen the film or had not seen it in years. For some, that was intentional.I stayed away from it. I didnt want to copy anything subliminally,Ž said Gregg Weiner, who plays Lesgate. But the beauty of the story is that there are certain universals. I think the fact that its 1953, its a certain style. The challenge for us to is really bring it to life in 2013 and make it real for us as actors and still honor the style of the piece, but really support the piece by doing it right, and making it as real as possible for ourselves and mak-ing it resonate for the audiences,Ž said Mr. Weiner. I would say make it immediate for yourselves as right now,Ž said Mr. Lewis. Theres a lot of clues in the beginning that the audience wont figure out until the middle or the end so the challenge is to drop those clues without dropping those clues,Ž said Todd Allen Durkin, who plays Tony. This style, to people nowadays, is foreign. We know how to play it because were trained. At times, it can come off comical if you push it too hard. You dont want to land it too hard because then it stands out and its awkward.Ž Hence the universal.These are just human beings that happen to be caught up in a very, very bizarre web of events. Now, could it happen today? Certainly, certain things could happen today. But how?Ž said Mr. Lewis. Its certainly from an era prior to cell phones, prior to comput-ers, prior to all kinds of things that we have to take for granted and that we must keep very clean because it is that period. These people are just very real individuals and I think thats what the appeal comes from.Ž That means looking beyond the obvious. I think a lot of the period stuff that we do, we start off doing this acting from our core as people identifying these people as people just like us. The way we sit, the way we smoke a pipe is external. All that stuff is kind of exter-nal, so you have to connect the honest and the truth that you are building for this character and connect it to that action so that it becomes honest,Ž Mr. Durkin said. And more complex.You can just simply tell the story on the surface and its still a rip-roaring story, but thats only a portion of the story,Ž said Mr. Lewis. Its a lot more interesting when you delve into the psy-chological framework of why a particu-lar person will choose to do something as extreme as he chooses to do. Then it really becomes fascinating and were not just simply doing a whodunit. Thats not the question in this play. The ques-tion is why and how and what happens when that perfect murder goes awry.Ž Rest assured Mr. Lewis and company will answer it.

B18 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 31-NOVEMBER 6, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLY The Best Just Got Better www.FloridaWeekly.comf PRINT f WEB f MOBILE f TABLET Florida Weekly is proud to introduce our expanded edition serving Palm Beach and West Palm Beach, Thursday, November 7th. VINOAttention to every detail results in top-flight South African wines Want to know what the best part of being a wine columnist is? No, it isnt being able to walk into the house with a case of wine under my arm and tell my wife, But, honey, its research for work!Ž (Thats a perk, yes, but shes not buying into it the way she used to anymore.) The best part is having the opportunity to spend two-plus hours enjoying dinner one-on-one with a passionate winemaker, tasting his (or her) wines with food and discussing the always fascinating topics of how and why he does what he does. I had the chance to do just that recently with South African winemaker Jean Engel-brecht, proprietor of Rust en Vrede Wine Estate in the Stellenbosch region. The first South African family-owned winery to specialize in the exclusive pro-duction of red wines, Rust en Vrede only produces wines from cabernet sauvignon, shiraz and merlot grapes. Mr. Englebrechts wines have made the Wine Spectator Top 100 Wines list five times, including 2012. We sampled his highly rated Estate 2010, as well as wines from two other South African wineries, while enjoying a wide-ranging discussion. Q. Your family has grown grapes in South Africa since the early 1700s. Why did your father decide to become a wine-maker in the 1970s? A. We used to sell all our grapes to large winemaking co-ops, but we realized we needed to focus our energies and market our products differently. Consumers are looking for handmade products, and sell-ing wine under our winery name puts a face on our wine. Q. What did your father teach you about making wine? A. Never in history has there been such a large choice of good wines for informed consumers. My father said that in order to be successful, the most important thing was to pay attention to details. And not just one or two small things, but you must pay attention to all of the details. You have to have a personal investment with your wine, and you get that by focusing on all the aspects of your business. Q. What do you enjoy drinking when not drinking your own wine? A. I like to compare enjoying wine to reading good books. When you read many different books, you enrich your life with the different experiences. If you drink wines, this enriches and expands your life as well. Q. If you were not a winemaker, what would you be doing? A. I knew I would be in the family business, but before that happened I wanted to have my own achievements. So I was an airline pilot for seven years, and I loved every moment of that. I had a sense of per-sonal freedom „ from (the family) busi-ness and also (because of ) the traveling. Q. What differentiates your wines from other producers? A. Our wine is supposed to be different from the next estate. That does not mean other wines are not as good, just there are always differences. A new BMW and a new Mercedes have different new-car smells, but share the same great quality level and attention to detail. When it became my turn to run the business, I started from a solid foundation. I did not have to re-invent the wheel, just tweak and modernize every year. It starts with the terroir, and then by doing all the small things right year after year, being consistent. Q. How would you describe your wines to someone who has not yet tried them? A. Our cabernet sauvignon does not have a European style. I like to describe them as forceful but elegant, more like a quality Napa Valley cabernet than a Bor-deaux style. Q. Do you have any favorite pairings of your wines and food? A. I hate the notion of certain wines with certain dishes, and I grew up enjoying wines with all dishes. If you believe that this certain wine only can go well with that particular dish, how do you grow?Wine Picks of the Week:Q Rust en Vrede Stellenbosch Estate Red Blend 2010 ($48): A blend of 61 percent cabernet sauvignon, 31 percent shiraz and 8 percent merlot, this wine is a bright ruby-red and has a complex berry and cassis nose with an enticing blackberry and spice palate, leading to a long, elegant finish. Q Anthonij Rupert Optima Western Cape 2009 ($35): Cabernet sauvignon blended with cabernet franc and merlot yields a rich dark purple color with dark berry and plum aromas and flavors mixed with a hint of cocoa and a long, smooth finish. Q Ernie Els Signature Stellenbosch 2010 ($55): This classic Bordeaux blend of five grapes produces a deep, inky-purple wine with complex nose and palate of dark berries mixed with strawberries, ending with a touch of minerality in its textured finish.

Military Trail, West Palm Beach; 686-9100 or The Price: $13.95 The Details: We have been visiting The Singing Bamboo for the better part of two decades and it has never disap-pointed. Oh, the dcor is solidly stuck in the 1980s, but the food is fresh, from main-stream interpretations of Chinese fare, to the more exotic (ask to see the spe-cial menu sometime). We went for mainstream during a recent visit, ordering General Tsos Chicken, which is one of lifes great comfort foods. The dish is tender bits of fowl lightly breaded, fried and stirred with a slight-ly spicy sauce that makes you hunger for more. The hot and sour soup that accompanied truly was warm, filling and tangy, and perfect with a Tsing-tao. Q „ Scott Simmons FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE We call it Casa Mia because we want you to feel like you are dining and relaxing in the comfort of your own home,Ž says Roberto Cavaliere, co-own-er of Casa Mia Trattoria and Pizzeria. Mr. Cavaliere, originally from Milan, says that he grew up watching his mother and grandmother in the kitchen which sparked his passion for food. I have always had a passion for food and wine,Ž he says. When I got to the states 22 years ago, I immediately start-ed working at different restaurants to continue learning what my mother and grandmother had started.Ž After leaving Milan, Mr. Cavaliere says that he moved to San Diego and immediately fell in love with the Ameri-can way of life. Working as a dishwash-er, a waiter, a bartender, and a cook, Mr. Cavaliere says that he was exposed to all aspects of the restaurant business and his passion grew deeper. But while working in various Italian restaurants, Mr. Cavaliere says that he missed traditional Italian cuisine. I noticed that many Italian restaurants had Americanized their dishes and lacked passion,Ž he says. My goal is to bring that passion back and to make people feel like theyre dining in Italy.Ž Mr. Cavaliere moved to Palm Beach Gardens where a dream of owning a restaurant became a reality. Mr. Cava-liere opened the Ocean Grill, but soon after, with a hunger for traditional Ital-ian cuisine, he developed Casa Mia with his partner Stefano Paggetti. Styled after a Tuscan villa, the rustic walls create a warm, homey, and invit-ing atmosphere where the smell of fresh imported food swarms the restaurant. Pizza, ravioli, pasta, gnocchi „ Mr. Cavaliere and Mr. Paggetti serve it all as well as offer live music on Saturday nights and happy hours daily. Because of the recent construction, a lot of customers wonder if we are still here,Ž he says. Not only are we here, but were offering new things all the time.Ž Despite the construction in the plaza, Mr. Cavaliere and Mr. Paggetti say that they are nothing but determined to serve quality Italian cuisine and wel-come customers to their home.Ž Name: Roberto Cavaliere Age: 49 Original hometown: Milan, Italy Restaurant: Casa Mia Trattoria and Pizzeria, 337 E.
