Malek, MDMedical Director, SMMC Comprehensive Stroke Center8 Years leslie COMMENTARYProfiles in courageIf the 2016 presidential election is any indication, there is no joy in Mudville; nor will there be any time soon. You remember Mudville. It is that mythi-cal place immortalized in a famous baseball poem written in 1888. The poem remained popular all these years because its narrative is a familiar one. It goes something like this: Its the bottom of the ninth. The hometown team is up, with two outs and two men on. Mudvilles last hope, the mighty Casey, is up at bat. Hes two strikes down. Then comes the final pitch. Casey whiffs the ball. Its game over. The loss settles over Mudville like a funerary drape. It is a tale of a date with destiny, of a people and a place confident all was going to end well despite the pre-cariousness of the teams situation. But, alas, it didnt. Heres a modern but similar version: Team America is locked in a heated contest with a visiting team from a rogue league. The homelands demo-cratic traditions and values are at stake. It has been up to this moment, a brutal and exhausting competition, a winner-take-all fight. The final inning is at hand. The last pitch is about to be thrown. Team America has lost its certainty. Will the homeland win or lose? No one knows. The game has never before been played like this. The star players are flawed. The stakes are impossibly high. Anger and fear infect the crowd. Catcalls rise that the game is rigged. Tensions spiral out of control. Fans spill onto the field, throwing punch-es at the players and each other. This is no one-time matchup of rival teams; it is an electoral process on the verge of implosion. The parties umpires are fleeing for cover, unable to rein in the crowd nor call the game. You have a feeling of dread this will end badly. In such a contest, fair play and decency are pass. Trump denigrates a Gold Star family. He says the sacrifices he made to become a billionaire are com-parable to that of a soldier sacrificing his life for his country. He indulges in displays of world-class petulance, snubbing his Republican col-leagues. Bad daddy is instructed by daughter to write 500 times, I am a loyal Republican.Ž He whines but sub-mits to party discipline with the enthu-siasm one reserves for a root canal. The Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton, has her own troubles, what with the ceaseless drone about her e-mails, her nuanced replies, feigning how deep-ly she regrets doing nothing wrong, the accusations of pay-to-play linked to her foundations trolling for donors. Still, her favorability in the polls is increasing in comparison to Trump, the scarier and more dangerous alternative. Trumps fitness for the office is an open question, a product of his own deeply unsettling political persona. In reply to those alarmed by his erratic behavior, Trump says Hillary is the crazy one. But it wont stick. In true Trump fashion, he has established himself as the brand for the mean-ing of crazy in a political context. His attitudes, behaviors, and public state-ments ensure his candidacy is the one to which all others will be compared on the not-fit-for-the-office measure. Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, has done the principled thing, citing Trumps temperament, judgement and lack of self-restraint as why she is abandoning her partys candidate. She makes no claim on anyone elses right to make their own decision. Nor is she endors-ing Clinton. But her action is indicative of the gravity in our choice of the next president. Trump says his supporters will vote for him even if he shoots some-one in Time Square. Its the lowest bar for citizenship anyone has ever set for this country. Republicans supporting Trump face the same moral crossroads as Collins: Will they put party before country and support their partys nominee, even if a Trump presidency puts the nation at risk? John F. Kennedy would have described this as a Profiles in CourageŽ moment, when an individual is faced with a grave moral choice to do the right thing. His book on the subject was a Pulitzer Prize winner. It tells the stories of political leaders who defied their partys and constituents opinions and did what they believed was in the countrys best interest, courageously and often at great personal and professional sacrifice. His-tory proved them right. On the matter of party before country, Kennedy wrote, We believe in this country in the principle of party respon-sibility, and we recognize the necessity of adhering to party platforms „ if the party label is to mean anything to the voters. ƒ But when party and office-holder differ as to how the national interest is to be served, we must place first the responsibility we owe not to our party or even to our constituents, but to our individual consciences.Ž This election is not about the candidates or the parties. It is about doing what is best for the country and voting your conscience. Q „ Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian.

A4 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 18-24, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY OPINION The differences are stark when comparing candidatesIt comes down to issues and temperament. Thats how we should compare presidential candidates „ and this year the differences are stark. These criteria are interrelated. Positions on issues indicate a philosophy. Temperament, including judgment, indi-cates how a president might implement that philosophy. Comparing the candidates positions is hard because Donald Trump is simplis-tic rather than substantive, but consider these examples. On Muslims, Trump opposes their entering the U.S. and questions the loy-alty of Muslim Americans. Hillary Clin-ton would work with Muslims against terrorism, not stigmatize them all and alienate them. On torture, Trump favors waterboarding and worse.Ž Clinton advocates leg-islation banning this barbarism, which violates basic morality. On NATO, Trump undermines the U.S. commitment, while Clinton reiterates our long bipartisan support for that suc-cessful alliance. On immigration, Trump would deport everyone here illegally and wall off Mex-icos border, which Mexico surely wont finance. Clinton wants comprehensive reform and continued protection for peo-ple brought here as children. On guns, Trump briefly opposed purchases by those on the no-fly and terrorist watch lists, a stance Clinton maintains. Clinton also would extend background checks, repeal gunmakers legal immu-nity and stop assault rifle sales „ not, as Trump lies, confiscate guns and abol-ish the Second Amendment. On climate change, Trump calls it a hoax and would end fossil fuel limits. Clinton sides with scientists, saying its real and we need clean energy. And on infrastructure, theres a rare agreement, to upgrade roads, bridges, air-ports, seaports and other facilities. Overall, Clintons positions are far more constructive and realistic. Temperament is critical because a president represents our country, and judgment is essential because we must trust that leader to handle problems we cant foresee and candidates cant address. This election, those qualities are being intensely debated. The party of Abraham Lincoln „ who heroically fought racism by freeing the slaves, the party of Theodore Roosevelt „ who led progressivism in the early 1900s, has nominated for president Donald Trump „ who unabashedly inflames vio-lence, and racial, religious and ethnic hate. That presents a profound choice for Republicans, who want to win yet pre-serve their partys principles. In 2016, they must not let the party of Lincoln become a bastion of bigotry. Look at Trumps childish name-calling „ such as PocahontasŽ to insult Elizabeth Warrens Native American heri-tage, MexicanŽ to slur a judge of His-panic ancestry, and pathetic labels to ridicule rivals. In trying to demean others, Trump demeans only himself. Clinton does none of this. Look at Trumps assertion of toughness. In reality, bombast and bullying confess that ones arguments are too weak to pre-vail with rationality. Truly strong people, especially presidents, dont rely on narcis-sistic bragging. Clinton doesnt project faux toughness, just real steadiness. While Trumps belligerence may be a pose, it incites a menacing passion in some followers. Yet beneath their bravado, they actually seem afraid. Their comments sug-gest they fear changing ethnic and racial demographics, an African-American as president, globalized economic competi-tion, immigration, and equal rights for gay and transgender people. They apparently fear an overdue end of exclusions that devalued fellow humans. Look at Trumps impetuosity, speaking without careful thinking: about Mus-lims „ where his entry banŽ initially was total and completeŽ but repeatedly has been altered; about abortion „ where he wanted women punished but later backtracked; about veterans „ who he claims to loveŽ after disparaging POWs; about the disabled „ where he mocked a disabled reporter, then tried to deny it; and about nuclear proliferation „ where he ignores the dangers. A president „ whose every word has impact „ cannot be rash. Clinton is indeed cautious and nuanced, which a president must be. And look at Trumps detachment from reality. He lives in a world of birther nonsense, Benghazi canards, illusions that New Jersey Muslims cheered 9/11, and other hallucinations. Clinton harbors no such fantasies. Concerning judgment, both candidates have had lapses. Clintons came when she used an unsecure private server for official e-mails and voted for the Iraq war. But she acknowl-edges those mistakes. Trump wont admit the mistakes of his intemperate speech and mixed business record. In the end, who has the positions, thoughtfulness, temperament and, yes, judgment to deal with four years of known and unknown challenges? By all those standards, Donald Trump is manifestly unfit for any high office, let alone the presidency. Hillary Clinton cer-tainly has flaws but given the alternative, shes clearly the better choice. Q „ Roger Buckwalter of Tequesta is a retired editorial page editor of The Jupiter Courier. Obama’s parting shotThe Obama administration is entering its final months, but its never too late to further diminish U.S. influence and discomfit our allies. President Barack Obama is considering adopting a policy of no first use,Ž i.e., declaring that the United States would never use nuclear weapons except after a nuclear attack on itself or its allies. From Obamas perspective, this change would have the dual advan-tage of being something he can legiti-mately do on his own and representing a radical departure in the countrys nuclear doctrine. For 70 years, presidents of both parties have maintained a posture of nucle-ar ambiguity. We wanted enemies to have to contemplate the possibility of a U.S. nuclear response to acts of aggres-sion. This added an extra element of uncertainty and risk to potential attacks on us or our friends, in the hopes of deterring them in the first place. Advocates of no first use urge that we get beyond Cold War thinking,Ž a favorite line of President Obamas as well. The end of the Cold War indeed changed the strategic environment, but it didnt make nuclear weapons obso-lete, or render age-old concepts like deterrence inoperative, or eliminate international conflict. Declaring no first use would kick away an element of our nuclear deter-rent. Yes, we no longer have to worry about deterring a massive Soviet army facing west. But Vladimir Putin has already changed the borders of Europe through force, and theres no reason to think hes necessarily done. A RAND Corp. study says that Russian forces could reach the capitals of the Baltic States in less than 60 hours. Why would we make Putins calculation any easier, or ease the minds of other potential aggressors like China and North Korea? We might never use nuclear weapons in response to a con-ventional attack, no matter how bra-zen. Obviously the risks in resorting to nuclear weapons would be mind-bog-gling, but taking the possibility off the table serves no purpose. If we are going to have nuclear weapons, we should take advantage of their deterrent effect. Relying entirely on conventional forces for deterrence would require more military spending and more forward-deployed assets by us and our allies. Of course, the analysts and activists who argue for no first use tend to be the same ones who think we spend too much on defense. One of these things does not go along with the other. Our allies are freaked out about the prospect of no first use. They have long relied on our nuclear umbrella, and if it is being pulled back, countries like South Korea and Japan will need to reconsider their decisions to forswear nuclear weapons. This is why no first use would contradict President Obamas opposition to nuclear proliferation, and make Global Zero „ the disarmament movements goal of a world free of nuclear weapons „ even more of a pipe dream. In short, there is nothing to recommend no first use unless you are a lame-duck president heedless of strategic reality and looking to make a gesture of anti-nuclear righteousness. No first use would make the world, at the margins, a more dangerous place „ and be a per-fect parting shot for President Obama.

MARTY BECKERUniversal UclickI was with friends in my hometown of Bonners Ferry, Idaho, and we were standing on the porte-cochere of a local hotels res-taurant. Coming directly at us on a retract-able leash was a cute, energetic canine with curly black hair, weighing about 12 pounds. What stood out to me was not his physi-cal appearance, but his emotions: He was clearly anxious and fearful. He ran around on the end of the retractable leash, zigging and zagging like a mar-lin hooked off the Baja Peninsula. Like a blinking neon sign, he alternated between relaxing and returning to his anxious, fear-ful behavior. His owner was oblivious to his fear, anxiety and stress. All he needed was the comfort of a couple of pet lovers, right? Wrong.Both of my female friends moved straight for the pooch, leaned over him, stretched out their hands toward his head and with direct eye contact said, Arent you a cute little doggy!Ž The dog was in full-blown panic.For decades, millions of pet lovers have done exactly the same. Taught by parents, grandparents, friends, neighbors and other animal lovers, they learned to show affec-tion for a dog by leaning in, extending a friendly hand and locking eyes in loving contact. But in working with dozens of boarded animal behaviorists, behavior technicians and trainers, Ive learned that all of that is wrong. All of it! Heres how you should greet a dog.1. Ask. Before you do anything, get the owners permission to pet the dog. Not all dogs like meeting strangers. 2. Play hard to get. Dont rush toward the dog. Move sl owly, t alk sl owly, ext end your closed fist sl owly. Let the dog choose if he or she wants to interact with you. Debbie Martin, a veterinary technician specialist in behavior and co-author of the Puppy Start RightŽ book and preschool curricu-lum, says: Let the dog make the first move. Dogs have an incredible sense of smell, and they can smell us from across the street. We do not need to reach our hands into their personal space so they can smell us.Ž 3. Get small. Looming over a dog can make him feel threatened or fearful. Rather than greeting a dog full-on, as if youre a store greeter ready to shake hands, turn your body sideways to reduce your profile, thus presenting a smaller perceived threat to the dog. 4. Extend a friendly fist. Once the dog has made the first move and is signaling interest in interacting with you, put out a closed fist down low, and let him make the approach. This is less threatening (and less annoying to the dog) than reaching out with the open palm of your hand and petting him on top of the head. 5. Eyes right. Your mom was right when she told you it was rude to stare. Dogs think its rude, too. Dont make eye contact with a dog. Thats considered a threat in his world. You can glance at him, but let your periph-eral vision guide you. 6. Dont touch the head. Dogs have special places they like to be petted, but the head isnt one of them. The top of the head is taboo. Along the top of the back isnt so good, either.

Breathtaking events are par for the course The Levitetz Family Foundation has come to the aid of Southeast Florida Honor Flight again by issuing a Match-ing Funds Challenge to raise money necessary to fly WWII and Korean War veterans to Washington, D.C., to see the memorials built in honor of their service. The foundation will match the first $37,500 raised dollar for dollar so that, at a minimum, a potential $75,000 can be raised for the scheduled Sept. 10 flight. Each Honor Flight transports veterans to Wash-ington, D.C., for the day to visit and reflect at the U.S. Marine Memorial (Iwo Jima), Arlington National Cemetery, the World War II Memorial and the Korean War Memorial. Money raised pays for 80 to 85 veterans to fly on a chartered Ameri-can Airlines A319, four motorcoaches for the days transport, police escort and meals, T-shirts and hats for the veterans. Dates for the next two Southeast Florida Honor Flights in 2016 are Sept. 10 and Oct. 8. The Levitetz Family Foundation of Boca Raton, dedicated to partnering with organizations locally and interna-tionally, rose to the challenge last sum-mer when Southeast Florida announced a call to action for urgent funding. At that time, the foundation donated sup-port for the October flight that was in jeopardy of cancellation. This year, the Levitetz board of directors has decided to make the donation a challenge to the community with the offer to match funds. The Levitetz Family Foundation, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization found-ed in October 2010, supports an array of needs in the community, including children, seniors and animal rescue. Local involvement is important to us,Ž said foundation board member Alan Rutner. We were looking for a veteran organization with which we could have a strong connection. The timing was right when Southeast Florida Honor Flight was brought to our attention.Ž Southeast Florida Honor Flight, a 100 percent volunteer organization, sched-ules four trips to Washington per year for local veterans in Indian River, St. Lucie, Okeechobee, Martin and Palm Beach counties. To help meet Honor Flights need for funding to pay tribute to Americas vet-erans and to participate in the Levitetz Matching Funds Challenge, donations can be made online at or sent to Southeast Florida Honor Flight Inc., P.O.

A12 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 18-24, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYCAR COMPANIES HAVE BEEN TRYING TO GET rid of the driver since the tailfin was standard issue. Last month our inter-state system turned 60 years old. Since its inception, General Motors, Mer-cedes and others have envisioned and invested in trying to take you coast-to-coast like a car was a private plane with an electronic pilot. The largest roadblock for most of these projects was not a technology hurdle, but instead the infrastructure it would take to get there. It is only in recent years that we have not needed to invest in smart roads, because GPS, smartphones and other communica-tion technology have helped to create a virtual electronic grid. Its a foundation weve never had before, and thats why autonomous vehicles seem to be on the fast track today. But the reality is we still have a truckload of questions and regulations to overcome before we remove the steer-ing wheel. After all, how does a cop write a ticket if one or more vehicles involved in an accident is autonomous? Can a mainstream provider insure the car? Is an occupant needed at all times or can our car come and pick us up? But even these questions skip a few stages before a vehicle is fully autono-mousŽ „ the top level in a six-tier industry-accepted definition. Right now we can buy cars with partial automation.Ž This is the third stage with driver aids that can help us keep lanes, fully brake to avoid an accident, and warn of poten-tial hazards. These automated assistance features already have the potential for a dan-gerous knowledge gap with the next generation of drivers. If new cars are smarter and commu-nicate with each other, as well as have their own accident avoidance systems, younger drivers will likely rely on these and may never pick up all the prop-er safety habits. It creates a situation where the statistically least responsible drivers, i.e., teenagers, will be relying heavily on computer intervention for accident prevention. But they will be sharing the road with older and vintage vehicles that are heavier, less respon-sive and possibly not communicating with the automobile grid at all. The even scarier question is will fully autonomous vehicles need to be programmed to kill? This might seem far-fetched, but consider the following hypothetical: A self-driving car rec-ognizes a family of three entering the roadway in front of it. The car calcu-lates it cannot stop in time. Theres a brick wall to the left and single pedes-trian on its right. Does this car have to make a decision whom to run into? Its a rare situation, but engineers have to go through each outlandish situation because it could happen out on the road. But even through a myriad of pitfalls, the development of autonomous vehicles is necessary. This is an oppor-tunity to provide unprecedented inde-pendence to the elderly and handi-capped. As a society that prides itself on freedom, it is our duty to encourage and promote technology that provides a huge increase in quality of life to our members. We also need to make sure it can be purchased, insured and operated at a reasonable cost, so it is an alternative (not a replacement) for traditional driving. If all of this seems a bit overwhelming, thats OK. We dont need to have all of the answers tomorrow. There are a lot of great minds working on this, but that doesnt mean we are going to get there soon, if at all. Those invested in the future of autonomous vehicles talk as if they are right around the corner. And that seems easy to believe, because there are already cars in our daily lives. But in this case, view the timetable more like the difference between sending a rocket to Mars and landing people there. Creating autonomous vehicles is ambitious, admirable and the kind of technology that allows us to push beyond our boundaries. But just like a rocket to Mars, its going to be a while before you strap your family in and let someTHING else do the driving. Q „ Myles Kornblatt is an automotive journalist, author, curator of the Miami Auto Museum and regular contributor to Florida Weekly.IT IS SO ENLIGHTENING TO READ AN OPINion of an insider into self-driving cars. Dr. (Larry) Burns explains in simple terms what a self-driving car is, at the same time discussing expected mile-stones of the project and its potential consequences. Moreover, its delightful to see it coming to the heart of South-west Florida. While I agree with what Dr. Burns is saying, it is always benefi-cial to have a second opinion of some-one who can play devils advocate. The numbers are convincing. With self-driving cars, we can save on ener-gy, clean air and time, and reduce fatalities from car accidents, with all this promising enormous cost savings for all stakeholders. Still, there are multiple unknowns. The design teams are certainly aware of it, but the public should know as well. So, let me articu-late some of these unknowns. With cars, we have things like air bags, anti-lock brakes, and drive-by-wire systems, which operate autono-mously. And we have cruise control that now expands toward adaptive cruise control where the distance to other vehicles is controlled automati-cally. But when we add fully auto-matic driving capability to a car, we are changing the game totally, because it is similar to having a multidimensional cruise control, enhanced with multi-tasking. The number of dimensions increases so dramatically that it is like opening a Pandoras box. This is the first issue „ complexity „ which we dont know how to handle efficiently. The second issue is that a self-driving car may appear to be safer, because we eliminate human error. But one has to realize that this is at the cost of giving up control totally to the machine, or strictly speaking, to software. Most software in industries I know is developed for good enough quality,Ž for a variety of reasons, but primarily due to a business pressure to place a new product on the market fast. In this context, can you really think about a car software upgrade? They will likely name it a recall. What is at stake is how various kinds of disturbances affect the drive, to which the software must appropriately respond. Among those often dangerous elements one can include interacting with pedes-trians, who are very unpredictable, sud-den changes in driving conditions (espe-cially weather), vehicles entering traffic unexpectedly or unexpectedly stopping in the middle of a road, drivers with malicious intentions, zombie drivers, and hit-and-runŽ incidents. How do you write software to respond to something which is so unpredictable? Its not the usual but definitely the unusual which makes it difficult. And it all leads to one magic phrase: safety first. Guaranteeing the safety of the vehicle and its passengers is crucial. A closely related issue is to provide security. Self-driving cars, especially their software, need to be certified from both perspectives, some-thing which is rarely raised in public discussions. I definitely see signs that the industry (Society of Automotive Engineers) and the regulatory agen-cies (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) will be able to resolve it, but it will be a long and painful pro-cess, just like it has been for certifica-tion of aircraft. Even though Babcock Ranch sounds like an excellent, although somewhat limited, proving ground for self-driv-ing cars, one has to realize that the real testing of software is done on its boundaries, to verify its behavior in unusual conditions „ perhaps even not anticipated by designers. This is how we educate students in the software engineering program at FGCU. To conclude, 130 years since Karl Benz invented a car means 130 years of continuous improvements. The path from plain mechanical device to the one stuffed with electronics took over a century. Years and decades will pass between moving from partially auto-mated to fully autonomous cars. As a whole, its definitely a disruptive technology. There is no doubt that a digitally enabled car combined with a new business model will cause dramatic changes in the industry and our everyday lives, opening a completely new world of possibilities. But at this stage, it is all very „ emphasis on veryŽ „ experimental, and needs further studies. Q „ Janusz Zalewski, Ph.D. is a professor in the software engineering department at Florida Gulf Coast University. His research includes safety critical systems and security mechanisms, software engineering and computer networks.Reality is that were a long, long way from self-driving carsWould software deter a malicious driver?BY MYLES KORNBLATTFlorida Weekly Correspondent BY JANUSZ ZALEWSKI, PH.D.Special to Florida Weekly KORNBLATT ZALEWSKI This is as big as moving from the horse and buggy to the Model T, not only in terms of safety and mobility for individuals but frankly for how cities and businesses are going to be transformed.Ž— Florida Sen.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF AUGUST 18-24, 2016 NEWS A13get around. A former General Motors executive and an adviser to the Google team that is developing self-driving cars, Mr. Burns described how this could play out. It was in some ways an aspirational, Ted-like talk by a man with a vested interest in developing self-driving cars. It was also an insiders perspective from a longtime car industry expert and engi-neer with a front-row seat to Googles plans. He offered a detailed, big-picture view of how the technology works, larger social and economic changes, and he addressed practical matters such as insurance. Self-driving cars at Babcock could be part of a shared community fleet, he told them, available on demand similar to an Uber. In the next five to 10 years, they could shuttle residents to Publix or Fort Myers or Naples or across Florida to Palm Beach County „ one of the communities he has studied to get an idea of how the cars will work in urban areas. Perhaps his biggest claim was that self-driving cars will make the world dramatically safer. About 35,000 people a year die in car crashes in the U.S. and 1.2 million die worldwide. Mr. Burns estimated deaths could be reduced by 90 percent with self-driving cars. But thats likely only in a world in which nearly everyone uses autono-mous cars. If, how and when we can get to that future is less clear and involves wide-ranging changes that could take decades. Driverless cars are having a moment. Although fully autonomous vehicles are not yet on the market, a growing num-ber of states and the federal government are dedicating resources to get ready for their presence. The U.S. Department of Transportation dedicated $4 billion over the next 10 years to kickstart car automation. Florida has paved the way with legislation effective July 1 allowing licensed drivers to use autonomous vehicles in the state, encouraging research and requiring Metropolitan Planning Orga-nizations and the Florida Department of Transportation to plan for more of them on the roads in the future. Here is an edited transcript and summary of Mr. Burnss car talk to Babcock planners on Monday, June 12, and the Q&A that followed. It lasted a little more than 30 minutes and included slides and video. A former head of research and development for General Motors and professor of engineering practice at the University of Michigan, Mr. Burns was recruited in 2010 as an adviser to the Google team that is developing self-driving cars. He also is on the advisory board for Kitson & Part-ners, the Palm Beach Gardens company building Babcock Ranch. In the these pages are others who lent their voices to the subject. Those include Florida Gulf Coast University software engineering professor Janusz Zalewski, and an automotive journal-ist and Florida Weekly contributor, Myles Kornblatt, who wrote editorials in response to the following transcript of Mr. Burnss talk. The pitchDo you enjoy shopping for a car? Financing a car? Insuring a car? Buying and pumping gasoline? Getting a car washed or maintaining a car? Driving a car? Parking a car? Sitting in traffic? If you answered no to either one or many of these questions, I think youre going to be in for a very exciting future because I think were going to find new CARSFrom page 1 Questions for Larry BurnsQ Larry Burns is helping Google develop self-driving cars. He believes they could revolutionize transporta-tion, becoming an everyday part of life for Babcock Ranch residents in Charlotte and Lee counties and on Floridas roads in five to 10 years. Q. Insurance. Is that the biggest obstacle remaining to this?A. “Well you know, some of the big players are going to self-insure with product liability and I think it’s a very important question, I’m not going to say it’s a concern. We think the government’s going to play an important role here. You know when u vaccines were created there was a big concern about allergic reactions to the vaccine so the suppliers were ner-vous about providing it and they were self-insuring, liability costs were skyrocketing and people who took the vaccine were worried about having a reaction. The government stepped in and they created the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. Twentyve cents of every u shot goes to that fund and then the government sorts this out. So I think there’s going to be some mechanisms to take that insurance on … We’re going to eliminate 90 percent of the crashes so in theory insurance costs should drop dramatically. It’s just that question of how do you protect yourself during that journey.”Q. It seems like the technology is there. Is that what’s holding things back from moving forward?A. “Two things. I think you’re concerned about liability (for) one. And then the other is the laws on where vehicles can operate. Fortunately, Florida is one of the most proactive states on this. California said, ‘We’re all in favor of it, but you have to have a licensed driver in the car and it has to have a steering wheel, a brake pedal, an accelerator pedal.’ We don’t think that’s the way to think about it. It was like when Henry Ford was popularizing the car some people felt that’s all ne, but a horse has to be out in front of the car. Well, that wasn’t really the right thing to do. So I think we’ll get through those things. That’s why Babcock Ranch is so special. It can be the learning laboratory. I don’t want our residents to think about themselves as test subjects, but it can be the learning laboratory for the entire state. Because our timing syncs up with the timing of the technology’s maturity and the startups wanting to come in here and have a rst market. So there’s a lot of positive things that play to Babcock Ranch.”Q. Are there any issues with ex-treme heat or cold in terms of the technology?A. “Not heat or cold. It’s rain and snow. Snow especially is an issue. Not that we don’t think we can get past it, we just haven’t worked on it. Why try to solve that when we still are trying to get to the next step? I would say some very, very heavy rains in Florida — probably still some work that has to be done to handle that. But all in all, Florida is the perfect place. It’s at, the streets are really in good shape compared to other states, well traf c engineered … a proactive state government … and the demographic of the population is aging. “If driverless cars could get every person in Florida who is over 70 to just go out and do something, just anything one more time a week and spend $20 engaging in the economy, the bene t to the state is enormous in terms of tax revenue.”Q. How do you see driverless cars taking people on longer trips outside the Babcock Ranch com-munity?“To be honest I think we’re within a ve-year window of companies like Google and others proving that a full-speed capable, fully engineered, fully safety-certi ed vehicle as you know it today can operate autonomously. So I don’t think there’s going to be anything constraining the autonomous driving system from going from Babcock Ranch to Naples and back. But those cars I think are going to be a little over-speci ed for the movements within the community. So I kind of see two markets emerging: a low-speed vehicle less than 25 mph tailored for the kinds of travel within the gated communities in Florida. And then a second eet of full-speed capable vehicles that you could also request and get rides to Publix down the road or all the way to Naples or Fort Myers. You can have these as personal use, you don’t have to share it. You could purchase one. But I think what most people really dislike about the car experi-ence … it’s this hassle of parking. Here in Florida if it’s a hot day like today and you go to Publix and you have to park way out in the back of the lot, that’s just onerous versus being dropped off at the door. So I think you’re going to have go-anywhere, anytime capability, and that’s probably in a veto 10-year window. Babcock Ranch is going to be on the cutting edge of it.” Q PHOTO COURTESY OF GOOGLEGoogle is using its mapping and searching technology to develop autonomous cars.COURTESY PHOTOLarry Burns presents a plan for self-driving cars to developers of Babcock Ranch.

A14 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 18-24, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYways of providing mobility to you.Ž Since cars first started being developed in the late 1800s, they essentially have the same design DNA,Ž Mr. Burns said, driven with combustion engines, oil-based fuel, mechanical and hydraulic controls, they operate on a stand-alone basis. People own them, people drive them, and theyre for general purpose.Ž There are about 1.2 billion vehicles worldwide. The downside, though, is there are 1.2 million fatalities a year, which is epidemic in scale.

The good news is theres a new DNA thats emerged, the first time in a century we can begin to think about the road-way transportation system through a completely different lens.Ž The new DNA includes driverless cars with electric drives, elec-tric motors and electronic and digital controls, that are shared, connected and coordinated (borrowing from business modes such as Uber and Airbnb). They will also be tailored to specific uses while todays cars are often less-efficient, too big and fast for most of the trips we take. When you combine connected, coordinated, shared, driverless and tailored, this is where the game really changes so its not any one technol-ogy and its not just technology alone. Its technology and business models that are making the difference.ŽHow does Google’s technology work?ƒ First they take a very detailed digital map of three dimensions ƒ They categorize everything thats moving. They put sensors on the car, a laser on the roof, radars on each corner and a camera. And then they take all of that data from the sensors, bounce it against the map as a reference, and they make the exact same two decisions youre making when youre driving: Youre making them over and over again: How fast should I go and which way should I steer? Thats it, so you might ask, Why Google? Well this is about speed to insight. A massive amount of information is coming in and then the insight is how fast should I go and which way should I steer. Whats Google do for a living? Search. Its all about speed to insight so this is right smack in the mid-dle of Googles sweet spot of what theyre capable of doing. Its very sophisticated analytics, large data-bases, deep artificial intelligence, simulation models and then 1.5 mil-lion miles (that Google driverless cars have already gone). They have discovered pretty much everything they have needed to discover and solve that challenge using computer algorithms. So its not a fairy tale. I ride in their cars. The last ride I had I was in Mountain View, Calif. I rode for an hour in the middle of the day. Mountain View is a very busy com-munity and I never had to take con-trol of the car. So thats how close we are. So now if a car can drive itself you can start to think about tailoring the design of the car.Ž Smart cars, or electrically networked vehicles could operate in platoons if you wanted more than two people to travel. The cars communi-cate with each other so they can give priority to emergency vehicles on the freeway ƒ They can really rethink the entire concept of an intersection. Do we even need traffic lights anymore? (The cars) are designed not to run into each other, and because these vehicles weigh only about 750 pounds theyre much more amenable to recharging a smaller battery. The point of this video is to get you thinking that the future of mobil-ity is something you wear, not some-thing you drive, and its something you might park in your closet, not in your garage.Ž So putting all this together promises better mobility at radically lower cost. What do I mean by better mobil-ity? Safer. Were going to take the crash out of the system. More convenient. If you want to go somewhere ƒ the vehicles right at your door within minutes. You get in, it takes you to your destination, youre not hassled with parking. You can use your time as you desire. I dont mean this flippantly, but Ive concluded that for most people driv-ing is the distraction. Why else would they send a text in a car going 70 mph unless they thought that was more important than to drive? So it gives you your time back and this is much more affordable than owning a car. All of this can happen together, from a societal standpoint we can have fewer fatalities and injuries and less energy use, less emissions, bet-ter land use, more equitable access to (cars). From a cost standpoint, a lot of the analytical modeling done on this subject suggests that today if you own a car, personally own it and drive it, it (costs you) about $1.60 per mile (including gas, finance, depre-ciation, insurance and maintenance). We think we can get that to 25 cents a mile. This is why Google, Uber, Apple, Tesla and others are (entering into) the auto business. Theres $2 to $4 trillion at risk of being disrupted if you actually get to this future. So this is just capitalism at its best quite honestly.Ž Googles on record as saying they think theyll have the technology by the end of 2018. Syncs up beautifully with Babcock Ranchs growth. Does it matter? I think the consumer, busi-ness and societal opportunities are really compelling.Ž Mr. Burns predicted that at Babcock, 20 to 50 autonomous vehicles might be used in 2018 to as many as 200 to 400 in 2021, with more than 50,000 residents, depending on how many trips they take each day. Essentially what were envisioning is that one of your residents could spontaneously request a ride. The closest available vehicle would arrive within minutes. Im talking one or two or three minutes, not 10 or 15. The vehicle takes the resident to their destination, lets say its to the lake house. The resident gets out of the driverless vehicle. (It) proceeds then to pick up somebody else that wanted a ride or if its not needed it would go and sit in the staging area. So we think its going to be very fast service, the service costs appear to be about the same as owning and operating a car. There are a lot of assumptions here so these are very preliminary results. So we need to also incorporate goods shipping into this. Because that same vehicle could be bringing you your groceries as well as picking you up on some other trip and then well begin to find our collaborators and see if we can get this ready to go in sync with when the homes are built.Ž Q CARSFrom page 13Lynne McChristian is Florida representative for the Insurance Information Institute.Heres the point that a lot of people are miss-ing. The excitement of self-driving cars is over-shadowing the reality. Its going to be 15 to 20 years before those cars are really a major part of our lifestyle. Its going to be quite some time. That being said, insurance rates are based on actual loss data, actual claims. That means historical claims and theres no history yet on self-driving cars. So theres going to have to be data collected showing theyre really going to save lives and minimize accidents. And theres every expectation they can do that. The insurance industry is looking forward to that future (because) 90 percent of car accidents are caused by human error. Youre going to see a market shift from an individual driver liability to product liability, so if the human is not in charge of the automo-bile and something malfunctions, is it the soft-ware? Is it the mechanics of the car? If theres an accident therell be liability that will shift. The insurance industry is looking forward to this day (when autonomous cars realize their potential for reducing crashes) but its not around the corner, its miles down the road.Ž QQQFlorida Sen. Jeff Brandes (R-St. Petersburg) is chair of the Senate Transportation Committee and one of the authors of new rules paving the way for autonomous vehicles in Florida, approved by Gov. Scott, which went into effect on July 1. Could self-driving cars at Babcock Ranch have go anywhere, anytime capability,Ž as Mr. Burns said, within the next five to 10 years? Thats not unrealistic,Ž Sen. Brandes said. As more people use self-driving cars in the years to come, integrating them onto roads poses challenges. (R)ecognize were going to emerge into a more autonomous world but early on theres going to have to be some hybrid model where there are a lot more human (driven) vehicles and well gradually transition to an autono-mous world.Ž That might include, for instance, separate lanes on highways for driverless cars that can more safely go faster than the ones we drive now. Driverless car in cities pose further challenges. Sen. Brandes said they could poten-tially transform public transportation, solving what is known as the first mile, last mileŽ problem: taking people from doorstep to door-step without having to walk to a bus stop. How soon will that happen? He guessed between 2025 and 2035. Hes optimistic that driverless cars could make society safer sooner rather than later. I think youre going to see even when you get to a 10 to 15 percent adoption rate youre going to see a radical reduction in the amount of accidents.Ž He doesnt see the need for further legislation in Florida to regulate self-driving cars, but predicts there will be a massive education campaign.Ž This is as big as moving from the horse and buggy to the Model T, not only in terms of safety and mobility for individuals but frankly for how cities and businesses are going to be transformed. Just like nobody could have told you how the Model T could affect American cities I think no one fully comprehends how this technology will affect our daily lives, not fully. So were all going to discover this together.Ž Q Voices ... MCCHRISTIAN BRANDES The six levels of autonomous vehicles In levels 0 through 2, a human driver monitors the driving environment.

FLORIDA WRITERSWit and wisdom meet in the sweet ‘hoot noir’ howl of Wylie CoyoteQ I Dont Like Where This Is GoingŽ by John Dufresne. Norton. 256 pages. Hardback, $25.95.Wylie Coyote, the original and highly engaging character readers met in No Regrets, CoyoteŽ (2013, reviewed in these pages), is back. The publisher is uncer-tain about whether to use the phrase A Wylie Coyote NovelŽ or A Wylie Coy-ote Melville Novel.Ž Me, I dont care. I just want more. I like where this is going. Wonderfully wacky and yet suspiciously sane, this is hoot noir „ a new subgenre. Plot might not be its main interest. When author John Dufresne provides in his acknowledg-ments a thanks to Jill Bialosky for finding the story in the manuscript,Ž one can take it as a kind of confession. Theres something jazz-like in Mr. Dufresnes thought pro-cess and prose, an improvisational wiz-ardry of the highest order. Pyrotechnics, puns and even a bit of prophesy. When South Florida meets Las Vegas, anything can happen. You can forget about who killed two young women and still have a wonderful „ though frequently disori-enting „ experience. Therapist-turned-sleuth Wylie and his good friend Bay Lettique, an illu-sionist (sleight of hand is his specialty) and a gambler, have left home for a while. Things have become uncomfort-able in Melancholy, Fla.; mobsters are after them. Soon after their arrival in the mecca of delusion and corrupt val-ues (their first stop is the Luxor), Bay gets to work in the casino; once they are moved into a proper longer-term residence, Wylie volunteers at the local crisis center. The precipitating event happened back at the Luxor. Something caught Wylies attention up at the apex of the pyramid when a woman fell over a balustrade and plunged to her death. The authors description of this seminal event, which I have no space to quote, is quite marvelous and sets high expectations for the rest of his story, expectations he meets and often surpasses. The detail and the distinctive evaluative thought process are given to Wylie himself. After all, he is the sleuth narrator of these experiences. Was it murder? Accident? Suicide? As soon as readers discover who the deceased was and why she was in Las Vegas, they are on their way to the Q&A sequences that are at the heart of detective-centered crime fiction. Whats most curious is the reaction of the officials who visit the crime scene. Soon after, they dont seem to have any knowledge of anything untoward happening at the Luxor. Theres no mention in the newspaper or on television. Then come only denials by the police spokesperson. Egypt is the leitmotif here. You die at the Luxor; you must come from Mem-phis „ as did the deceased, Layla Jean Davis, who performed proton therapy research at St. Judes Hospital. At any rate, The passing of Layla Davis played like the notes from an unclappered bell.Ž Like that turn of phrase? Keep reading. Youll encounter warring Taiwanese gangs named Posse Galore and Bamboo Rats. Youll hear about a crisis center caller with a speech impediment known to the center staff as Elmer the Dog Lisperer. Im smiling all over again remembering all this golden nonsense. More? I pulled out what I thought was my iPhone but was, in fact, a Trader Joes sardine can.Ž What we get in this novel is a look at the corruption of American culture as symbolically centered in Las Vegas: a culture of greed where anything can be had at the right price or the judi-cious use of force. This is social satire with a strong bite. Occasionally, Mr. Dufresne offers the wise, sad truism: To be ignorant of the suffering of others is to be complicit in that suffering, isnt it, whether the ignorance is willful and con-venient or oblivious and genuine?Ž He offers a dizzying cast of characters, including journalist Elwood, who helps the investigation along and explains the anonymous monopolyŽ that runs the prostitution business. This is a world where you can buy a rocket launcher from craigslist, where everyone has at least one alias, and where a pair of off-duty metro cops known as Filthy Luka and Nicky Slots moonlight at the House of Mirth, where one can buy the services of three unblemished virgins right off the banana boat from Belize.Ž You can laugh or cry, but you wont forget the unique vision and style of this most entertaining and provocative author, who lives in Dania Beach.

Thats how the Honda Civic has felt for the last 15 years. In the late 1990s, this economy car had a lot of young fans who liked the nimble styl-ing and tuning up the bulletproof motors. But the boy-racer image threatened the mainstream audience who rely on the Civic as a solid economy machine. So in 2000, a revised car debuted with more mature styling and less emphasis on handling. For the next three generations, the Civic tried to be the grown-up of the group. Unfortunately, it just felt like the spunky neighborhood kid had come back from college as the anxious know-it-all. That has changed with the all-new 2016 car. The Civic has graduated, and it confidently stands on its own. Finally, now that this little Honda has stopped trying so hard to impress everyone, it actually does impress. The new design of both the coupe and sedan feels like the result of a lesson hard learned. Comfortable in its own skin at last, the Civic is ready to embrace its sporty past without giving up the ability to attract mature adults. Stability for a design like this means making sure theres a hint of familiarity even in the middle of a revolution. It starts up front with lines that seems borrowed from its bigger brother, the Accord. But that family face is met with a sleeker fast-back profile. In the rear, the taillights are part of an integral spoiler that would be considered a risky choice if it were not so downright attractive. Inside, the same mature sports car feeling continues. Both the sedan and the coupe have well-designed seats, and when the optional leather is selected, they look and feel like BMW made them. Rear seat space is good, and the sedan provides a few more inches of legroom over the coupe, making it entirely suitable for a familys second car. Theres a high center console to give the driver and passenger that cocooned feel-ing of being in a performance vehicle, but its real purpose is to house a multi-level versatile storage space thats large enough to swallow even gym-sized water bottles. The touchscreen infotainnment system is the true standout of the new Civics interior. It starts out as nothing remarkable, although the standard backup camera is always a good thing to have. But on every model but the base one, Honda adds its Lanewatch feature: A side-mounted cam-era provides a clear view of the lane to the drivers right. Complete with distance markings, it reduces blind spots and even helps see pedestrians at intersections. This is the exact kind of technology that comes from a grown-up sports car. In the engine bay theres the choice of a 158-hp, 2.0-liter or a 174-hp, turbocharged 1.5-liter. This is the dividing line for the Civic. While the turbo version sounds like the performance choice, the continuously variable automatic transmission is geared for the more mature, economical crowd (rated at a combined 35 mpg). The lower-powered engine comes with VTEC and a six-speed manual transmission for all of those who want to rekindle the older boy-racer Civics. No matter the motor, the Civic has merged its past and present into a satisfy-ing feeling on the road. Hondas invest-ment in new suspension components has yielded a sharpness that makes running around in the city a breeze and adds a little fun to the commute. At the same time, theres enough dampening that highway miles are not jarring. Even with its new unified personality, the 2016 Honda Civic has not lost its core of providing value. A well-equipped base sedan starts at $19,500, and while there are plenty of options to add, a loaded Touring coupe will still cost far less than $30K. This car was made possible only by Honda taking the time to cultivate a more mature image while at the same time remembering the sporty vehicle that sprung from the economy hatchback roots many generations ago. In other words, it took all of the Civics of the past to make the best Civic ever today. Q myles

HEALTHY LIVINGWhat the doctor orderedResearch shows detaching from work can benefit physicians — and everyone THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDAIf there are crumbs on your desk from countless lunches spent responding to emails and attending to other job-related responsibilities, it might be time to clean up and take a step back. New research suggests that detaching from work during a lunch break can boost energy and help you to better respond to the demands of the day. Thats the message behind a study that finds early-career doctors „ and the rest of us in general „ can be better at our jobs if we simply set aside as little as 30 minutes a day for some meŽ time. The alternative, the study finds, is a scenario in which the patient may suffer. The study, conducted by University of Florida and University of Tennessee at Chattanooga researchers and published in Psychology, Health & Medicine Jour-nals third issue in 2016, found that active recovery activities like exercising and volunteering can help employees respond better to their jobs demands. Researchers focused on the work and rest patterns of 38 early-career physicians from a teaching hospital in the Southeast. Of the participants, 63.2 percent were male, and the median age was 29. The typical physician can average an 80-hour work week, leaving little opportunity for leisure and sleep. Residents are a very unique population,Ž lead researcher Nicole Cranley says. The stressors they engage with throughout the day are a lot more sig-nificant than those of the aver-age American. Therefore, these moments of replenishment are that much more important.Ž Ms. Cranley did the research while a doctoral candidate in UFs department of behavioral science and community health. She is now a postdoctoral fellow at the University of North Caro-lina at Chapel Hill. The study assessed the time early-career physicians spent at work versus the time they spent on sleep and leisure, their ability to detach from work during non-work hours and whether they engaged in active or passive recovery activities. Physicians ranked activities they engaged in at home and at work for how draining or energy boosting they were. The results showed that the time earlycareer physicians spent on work exceeded the time they spent on sleep and leisure activities combined „ and although eat-ing was the most highly ranked at-work activity, even lunch breaks were con-sumed by work. They grab things and go, or they are eating while they are in conference or listening to a lecture,Ž Ms. Cranley says. There really isnt that time when they are not doing something related to work.Ž Researchers also found that the participants had trouble psychologically detaching from work and that they engaged in more passive forms of recovery in their nonwork time. While passive recovery „ watching television, for example „ is not necessarily harmful, it does not help boost energy levels beyond the baseline as active recovery activities can. These patterns of working without taking time to recover fully can lead to burnout. Burnout is a serious issue,Ž Ms. Cranley says. Its usually related to the fact that youre not taking enough time for self-care or engaging in activities that help you gain back some of those resources.Ž For physicians, she adds, higher levels of burnout lead to higher rates of poor-quality patient care. You can only effectively care for someone if you are in a good state of mind. You have to be in a good place to be able to give your all to someone else,Ž she says. One way to replenish resources is engaging in active recovery activities outside of work, no matter how little time is avail-able to engage in those activities. It doesnt matter if you only have 45 minutes to go to the gym. Take those 45 minutes for your-self,Ž Ms. Cranley says. The studys findings provide the groundwork to improve phy-sician self-care and medical edu-cation. Its a very unique situation that residents are in because they are expected to have all of the answers, when oftentimes they dont,Ž she says. The goal of the research is to help medical schools and hospitals recognize the nature of the stressors that the earlycareer physician population faces and equip them with skills to deal with stress and recognize signs of burnout in them-selves. I think where we are missing the mark is in medical education,Ž Ms. Cranley says. Its a culture issue. We need to reas-sure our health professionals that its okay to need self-care. Everybodys valuable. Everybody needs to take care of themselves some-times. We cant all be 100 percent all the time.Ž Q Study shines light on mutations responsible for heart conditions SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe leading cause of death in the world remains cardiovascular diseases, which are responsible for more than one third of overall mortality, according to the World Health Organization. Obesity and diet are obvious culprits behind heart disease but, over the past decade, research has also pointed to genetic factors, specifically mutations in cell adhesion components „ the forces that bind cells together.In a new study, scientists from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute, in Jupiter, offer new molecu-lar insights into how the interaction between specific genetic mutations and a cytoskeletal protein critical for the proper development and maintenance of heart tissue can lead to conditions such as dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) „ and ultimately heart failure. The new study, which was led by Associate Professor T. Izard of the Florida campus of TSRI, is published this week in an early online edition of the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The new insights could aid in the development of drug therapies to strengthen the hearts of patients suffer-ing from age-related heart failure. The study focuses on the protein vinculin and a variant form known as meta-vinculin, which is found only in muscle tissue. Vinculin has been shown to reinforce the myocardial cell cytoskeleton, improving heart muscle contractility and prolonging life, while metavinculin plays an essential role in the develop-ment and function of the heart. Both vinculin and metavinculin regulate cell adhesion and migration by link-ing the cells cytoskeleton to adhesion receptor complexes via a process known as dimerization „ the joining of two similar subunits. Control of the dimer-ization process is crucial for normal protein function in cell adhesion sites. But mutations in the variant metavinculin, either inherited or spontaneous, corrupt this process, altering dimeriza-tion and, the study suggests, producing a decreased ability to stabilize critical cell adhesions, weakening the heart muscle over time. The researchers found that these mutations „ specifically, a mutation known as R975W in metavinculin „dictate the type of interaction during dimerization and can actually block the process. That, in turn, results in heart muscles that are far more susceptible to stress-induced heart disease.The first author of the study, Differential Lipid Binding of Vinculin Isoforms Promotes Quasiequivalent Dimeriza-tion,Ž is Krishna Chinthalapudi of TSRI. Other authors include Erumbi S. Ranga-rajan of TSRI and David T. Brown of the University of Mississippi Medical Center.For information, see Q

No Points, No Borrower Paid PMI*, No Tax Escrow Required and Low Closing Costs! e Home of Low Cost Mortgages Home-price gains unfettered in most metro areas NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORSHome prices maintained their robust, upward trajectory in a vast majority of metro areas during the second quarter of 2016, causing affordability to slightly decline despite mortgage rates hover-ing at lows not seen in more than three years, according to the latest quarterly report from the National Association of Realtors. The report also revealed that for the first time ever, a metro area „ San Jose, Calif. „ had a median single-family home price above $1 million. The median existing single-family home price increased in 83 percent of measured markets, with 148 out of 178 metropolitan statistical areas showing gains based on closed sales in the sec-ond quarter compared with the second quarter of 2015. Twenty-nine areas (16 percent) recorded lower median prices from a year earlier. There were slightly fewer rising markets in the second quarter of 2016 com-pared to the first three months of the year, when price gains were recorded in 87 percent of metro areas. Twenty-five metro areas in the second quarter (14 percent) experienced double-digit increases „ a small decrease from the 28 metro areas in the first quarter. A year ago, 34 metro areas (19 percent) experi-enced double-digit price gains. Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, says a faster pace of home sales amidst languishing inventory levels pushed home prices higher in most metro areas during the second quarter. Steadily improving local job markets and mort-gage rates teetering close to all-time lows brought buyers out in force in many large and middle-tier cities,Ž he says. However, he adds, with homebuilding activity still failing to keep up with demand and not enough current owners putting their homes up for sale, prices continued their strong ascent, and in many markets at a rate well above income growth.Ž The national median existing singlefamily home price in the second quarter was $240,700, up 4.9 percent from the second quarter of 2015 ($229,400), which was previously the peak quarterly medi-an sales price. The median price during the first quarter of this year increased 6.1 percent from the first quarter of 2015. Total existing-home sales, including single-family homes and condos, rose 3.8 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.50 million in the second quarter from 5.30 million in the first quarter of this year, and are 4.2 percent higher than the 5.28 million pace during the second quarter of 2015. Primarily from repeat buyers moving up or trading down, existing sales increased each month last quarter and could have been even higher if not for a few speed bumps,Ž Mr. Yun says. Clos-ings were slowed a bit by meager supply levels, he explains, and home prices in many areas are still rising too fast.At the end of the second quarter, there were 2.12 million existing homes available for sale, which was below the 2.25 million homes for sale at the end of the second quarter in 2015. The average supply dur-ing the second quarter was 4.7 months „ down from 5.1 months a year ago.Mr. Yun says that without enough new construction being built, existing inven-tory seriously failed to keep up with the growing demand for buying. As a result, homes typically stayed on the market for around a month throughout the second quarter, and more than 40 percent of list-ings sold at or above list price, with June being the highest share since NAR began tracking in December 2012 (43 percent). Many listings in a majority of markets, and especially those in lower price ranges, had multiple offers and went under contract quickly because of severely inadequate supply,Ž he says. This in turn dented affordability and without a doubt priced out a segment of buyers attempting to seek relief from fast-growing rents.Ž Despite falling mortgage rates and a small increase in the national fam-ily median income ($68,774), swiftly ris-ing prices caused home affordability to decline in the second quarter compared to a year ago. To purchase a single-fam-ily home at the national median price, a buyer making a 5 percent down payment would need an income of $52,255; a 10 percent down payment would require an income of $49,504; and $44,004 would be needed for a 20 percent down payment. The five most expensive housing markets in the second quarter were: Q San Jose, Calif., metro area ($1,085,000) Q San Francisco ($885,600) Q Anaheim-Santa Ana, Calif. ($742,200) Q Urban Honolulu ($725,200) Q San Diego ($589,900) The five lowest-cost metro areas in the second quarter were: Q Youngstown-Warren-Boardman, Ohio ($85,400) Q Cumberland, Md. ($94,900) Q Decatur, Ill. ($95,600) Q Binghamton, N.Y. ($105,500) Q Rockford, Ill. ($109,000)Regional breakdownTotal existing-home sales in the Northeast jumped 7.6 percent in the second quarter and are 11.3 percent above the second quarter of 2015. The median existing single-family home price in the Northeast was $273,600 in the second quarter, up 1.6 percent from a year ago. In the Midwest, existing-home sales leaped 10.4 percent in the second quar-ter and are 6.6 percent higher than a year ago. The median existing sin-gle-family home price in the Midwest increased 5.1 percent to $191,300 in the second quarter from the same quarter a year ago. Existing-home sales in the South inched forward 0.3 percent in the second quarter and are 4.2 percent higher than the second quarter of 2015. The median existing single-family home price in the South was $214,900 in the second quar-ter, 5.9 percent above a year earlier. In the West, existing-home sales climbed 1.4 percent in the second quar-ter but are 2.2 percent below a year ago. The median existing single-family home price in the West increased 6.5 percent to $346,500 in the second quarter from the second quarter of 2015.

Born in Nebraska, he joined the Navy right out of high school and enjoyed hiking, ski-ing and diving in his free time. His snack of choice: beef jerky. Its a good source of protein,Ž Mr. Jones said. Hes still passionate about the meat treat. In fact, the Palm Beach Gardens resident and his wife of 46 years, Lupe, snack on „ and sell „ more than 200 premium jerky varieties in a range of sizes and flavors. The two, high school sweethearts, opened Beef Jerky Outlet at the Palm Beach Outlets this summer. Founded in 2010, the Beef Jerky Outlet is the countrys first national jerky franchise. The West Palm Beach fran-chise is the 68th of 77 nationwide. The business calls itself an amusement park for carnivores. Jerky was a great snack throughout my 20 years military career and a big reason why I became interested in the franchise,Ž Mr. Jones, 64, said. For years, he made it at home. We started using the oven and hanging meat on oven racks with tooth-picks,Ž he said. Then we migrated to a small dehydrator and seven or eight years ago our kids gave us a large dehy-drator, which of course benefits them because what Dad makes, they eat.Ž This is a perfect time to open a jerky store because of the demand for light-weight, high protein foods, Mr. Jones said. Jerky is lean, high in protein and nutritional value and low in calories, carbohydrates and fat (jerky is only 3 percent fat). I try to sample everything at the store,Ž Mr. Jones said. My favorites are wild game, peppered elk and anything Cajun and spicy.Ž Mrs. Jones favors prime rib jerky and sweet and spicy varieties. Previously, Mr. Jones was director of security at Lockheed Martin. Before that, he worked on submarines in the Navy for 20 years. We had to move a lot while he was in the Navy,Ž Mrs. Jones said. She has more than 30 years of sales experience. The couple has two children and four grandchildren. They work together every day at the store and thats going well, both said. I work in the front and she works in the back (of the store),Ž Mr. Jones said. We have worked together in the past,Ž Mrs. Jones said. I was working in gov-ernment housing and I had hired him as a plumber. We have our differences of opinion, but we work them out.Ž Beef Jerky Outlet is in the Palm Beach Outlets, at 1741 Palm Beach Lakes Blvd., West Palm Beach. Don JonesAge: 64 Where I grew up: Lexington, Neb., until the age of 18, when I joined the Navy Where I live now: Palm Beach Gardens, for 16 years. Education: High school diploma and some college What brought me to Florida: Employment with Lockheed Martin and scuba diving. My first job and what it taught me: I worked at a Safeway grocery store that taught me people skills, being courte-ous, attention to detail. A career highlight: In the Navy, it was being selected and accepted as a chief petty officer. In our new franchise, it was the blood, sweat and bruised knuckles to get the store open and see the happy smiles of people walking through the doors in awe. What I do when Im not working: Scuba diving and biking. Best advice for someone looking to make it in my field: Dont be afraid to come out of your comfort zone to try something new. About mentors: In the Navy we have what is called sea daddy.Ž They basically take you under their wing and teach you how to be a contributor to the Navy way of life. There is a right way to do things, a wrong way to do things and there is the Navy way to do things. Once you learn the Navy way you are golden. My sea daddy taught me to respect others, that it takes less time to do something right the first time than it does to do it half-assed and then have to do it again, and most importantly be there for your family and shipmates. Q “Don’t be afraid to come out of your comfort zone to try something new.” — Don Jones, Co-owner, Beef Jerky OutletCOURTESY PHOTODon and Lupe Jones of the Beef Jerky Outlet in West Palm Beach. MONEY & INVESTINGBank loan index reacts to increased demand for U.S. dollarsI think one of the main reasons that people get stressed over financial deci-sions is that money matters are typi-cally nontransparent and not very easy to understand. There is a reason that a loan application is dozens of pages long and the disclosures when you buy an annuity or mutual fund could take hours to read. A prime example of this complexity is interest rates. As you probably are aware, rates across the globe have fallen to his-torical lows. That should be good news for borrowers, right? Well, many individual and corporation loan payments actually increased during the last quarter. Why are interest payments going up while overall rates are falling? There are two general types of loans in the marketplace „ fixed and floating. Fixed-rate loans have a fixed rate of inter-est for the life of the loan. In contrast, the rate on a floating rate loan is tied to some type of index. For many student loans, mortgages, credit cards and business loans, that index is called LIBOR „ an acronym for the Lon-don Interbank Offered Rate. In simple terms, it is the rate at which banks can borrow from one another. It is the banks short-term cost of capital. Since the beginning of 2013, 90-day LIBOR has stood at around .25 percent. And in the end of 2015, the Fed decided to increase short-term rates for the first time since the financial crisis and LIBOR responded as many expected by jumping to around .5 percent. But in the last couple of months, LIBOR has moved in a way that surprised almost everyone. As central banks around the world have been cutting rates and flooding markets with money to stimulate economies, LIBOR has been ris-ing. It now stands at .82 percent. So for individuals and companies whose loans are tied to LIBOR, they are beginning to see higher interest payments. While a .32 percent rate increase probably wont make a noticeable difference on someones $5,000 credit card balance, it can make a difference on a $10 million business loan. And experts estimate the global amount of loans tied to LIBOR at almost $7 trillion. Primarily, the surge in LIBOR rates is due to money market fund regulations that are going into effect on Oct. 1. These rules were created after the financial crisis to protect money market fund investors. The rules favor funds that invest in government bonds and impose restric-tions and potential fees on nongovern-ment money market funds, which are seen as more risky. In response, investors have started to pull money out of short-term nongovernment funds, which has choked off some liquidity to banks. LIBOR rates have risen as banks fight for this decreased pool of money. Secondarily, the pop in LIBOR rates is seen as result of increased demand for U.S. dollars. The question is whether LIBOR will continue to increase and if regulators will modify their rules. Just another data point to watch in the months ahead. Q eric

PRICED ITEM20% OFF/LPLWRQHSHUFXVWRPHU‡H[SLUHV KOVEL: ANTIQUESFrench perfume lamps can bring dazzling prices BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVELIn the unsanitary world of the 18th and 19th century, bad smells were every-where. There was no garbage pickup, no indoor flushing toilets and no refrig-eration to keep food from spoiling. In the 1800s, a special lamp was used to remove the strong odors in hospitals and mortuaries. It was a catalytic lamp that burned an alcohol-based fuel. A cotton wick burned for a few minutes to heat a stone. After the flame was out, the heated stone turned odors into carbon dioxide and water. In 1897, a Frenchman improved the lamp by adding perfume to the fuel to make a scented room. Many lamps were made in figural shapes suitable for a liv-ing room or bedroom. Today, perfume lamps heat with electricity. The best 20th-century perfume lamps were made by French makers Robj, Aladin or Etling. A perfume lamp shaped like an Art Deco chorus girl sold at a Skinner auction in 2015 in Boston for $1,968. The 10-inch lamp was marked Meu Bach Aladin.Ž Q: Vintage sofas are much lower priced than new ones. I like Victorian sofas with curved backs but dont want to learn my bargain sofa has a problem I cant fix. A: If you want a 19th century sofa you should buy from a knowledgeable dealer. So little of the frame shows, and it is dif-ficult to tell a 19th-century sofa from an early 20th-century one. Smell any old upholstered furniture. Often, the smell will not leave. Decide if the upholstery is a color and condition you want to live with. Re-upholstering furniture is very expensive. Sit on the sofa to be sure it is comfortable. Be sure you can get it in your van or car. If you want to use it in a base-ment or second-floor room, the stairs may have too low a ceiling or a turn that makes it impossible to take it inside. But if all looks OK, you will have a sturdy bargain. Q: Id like some information about an iron lamp marked Goberg.Ž A: GobergŽ was made by Hugo Berger in Schmalkalden, Germany, beginning in 1895 He was part of the Jugendstil (Art Nouveau) movement in Germany. Candelabras, lamps and other decorative objects were made in iron and brass. Most Goberg items were sold in depart-ment stores in Europe. Q: I have Russel Wright olivegreen glazed dinnerware, includ-ing large platters. Where can I sell them and what price range would they sell for? A: Russel Wright (1904-1976) was an Ameri-can designer of domestic and industrial wares, includ-ing dinnerware, glassware, fur-niture, radios and interiors. He made several dinnerware patterns in modern shapes for different manufactur-ers. The most popular is his first line, American Modern, which was made by Steubenville Pottery Co. from 1939 until 1959. Sets of dinnerware are hard to sell. First, you should find which pattern you have. Check to see what pieces are selling for online. Serving pieces sell for more than plates or cups and saucers. A perfect platter could be worth about $50 and a dinner plate $5, depending on the color. Q: My childhood teddy bear is, I am told, a Steiff and valuable. What determines the price? A: Some Steiff teddy bears sell for thousands of dollars but many things influence the price. A real Steiff should have a button in the ear that says Steiff. The high-priced bears are old and have mohair fabric in a rare color. White, lavender, black or red is best. Older bears are stuffed with straw, kapok, excelsior or sawdust, not polyester. Any nylon or plastic part suggests a newer bear, worth a lower price. Very large and very small bears are expensive. Q: Weve just been given a set of silverware that we were told is 100-plus years old. It belonged to a friend of my husbands grandmother who gave it to his mother about 1910. Its a service for eight and pieces are marked Lake Betty Silver PlateŽ on the backs. All is in excellent condition in a leather, velvet-lined case. We are wondering if the set has any value, other than sentimental. A: Your silver-plated flatware is not as old as you think it is. The pattern name is Lady Betty and was introduced by Inter-national Silver Co. of Meriden, Conn., in 1940. The company was formed when some independent silver makers merged in 1898. Silver plating by electricity began in the U.S. in 1847, earlier in England. By the 1880s, more than 40 firms, mostly centered near Meriden, made simple to elaborate silver-plated tableware until the 1980s. Your flatware is not worth much „ under $100 „ and places that buy silver to melt are looking for sterling silver, not silver plate. Tip: Gold and silver trim on glass or ceramics will eventually wash off if cleaned in a dishwasher. Goldand silver-trimmed glassware and ceramics should never be put in a microwave. The metallic glaze will cause electric arcing and could start a fire. Q „ Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

Legacy Place 11300 Legacy Ave. #110 1BMN#FBDI(BSEFOT'PUZZLE ANSWERS Local playwright to offer dinner theater presentation of ‘Shell of a Man’ SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY Donna M. Carbone, a freelance writer/teacher/jour-nalist living in Palm Beach Gardens, is being honored by Harbourside Place and Another Broken Egg Caf with a din-ner theater presen-tation of her play, Shell of a ManŽ on Thursday, Sept. 1. According to Ms. Carbone, Shell of a ManŽ is based on the life of an actu-al Vietnam veter-an and focuses on the effects of his 40-plus-year battle with PTSD. Her goal is to personalize this much-talked-about but barely under-stood condition in order to raise aware-ness of the need for better health care for men and women in uniform. The play will feature three actors who train at the Burt Reynolds Institute for Film and The-atre „ Ewan Leslie as Robert Logan, Jeanne Tidwell as Adriana Fleming and Nancy Wood as Dawn Peters. Car-bone mentioned that both Tidwell and Wood were experienced actors but said Leslie would be treading the boards for the first time in his career. Im so proud of my actors,Ž she said. There is a tremendous amount of dialogue to memorize in a short amount of time, but Ewan, Jeanne and Nancy are pas-sionate about Roberts story, and I know that passion will show in their perfor-mances.Ž Another Burt Reynolds Institute student, Kevin Mayle, is responsible for creating the poster advertising the play. In a recent interview, Ms. Carbone explained how Shell of a ManŽ came to be written. In 2011 I published two columns supporting better health care for veterans. A Vietnam vet wrote to me, expressing his thanks and beginning what was to become a much cherished and, often, painful friendship. He calls himself Robert L. Weve never met. His face is but a ghostly image in an old pho-tograph he sent to me. I hear his voice only through the emails we exchange. I believe that dis-tance and the anonymity of the internet allowed Robert to share his life with me in a way few others have heard. What he said forced me to accept that, despite being well read, I knew nothing about what a black man endured being raised in the Jim Crow South or the effects of having served in a war zone. Although Shell of a Man is told through the life of one man, it is in actuality the story of many men.Ž Shell of a ManŽ was presented as a staged reading in April at the Dal-las Convention Center, where it was warmly received. Carbone incorporated suggestions from that audience into the presentation that will take place at Harbourside. This time the play will be presented as a workshop performance, which is the second step in the produc-tion process, and will include another talk-back with the audience at the end of the show. The dinner portion of the evening will begin at 5 p.m. and will include a fixed-price menu with a selection of two main courses. The meal will include a glass of wine and/or a cold beverage. The cost for both the dinner and the show is $30. The play will begin at 7 p.m. Seating is limited. Tickets can be ordered by calling 385-1584.

YesSuperb in every way, Hell or High WaterŽ is a slow burn, tense and sublime American drama highlighted by fantastic writing and even better performances. Its one of the best movies of the year.If the Old West told stories of good vs. evil and the protection of civilization against all who threaten it, this New WesternŽ adapts those principles for the present day with noticeably blurred lines. Brothers Toby (Chris Pine) and Tanner (Ben Foster) are as smart as can be when robbing numerous branches of Texas Midlands banks: They wear masks, always use a different car, only take low denomination bills (because 100s and above are traceable) and max out at less than $10,000 each time. This keeps them below the radar of the FBI „ but puts them in the sights of retiring Texas Rang-er Marcus (Jeff Bridges) and his partner, Alberto (Gil Birmingham). In addition to Toby and Tanners methodology being smart, their reasons are valid (albeit selfish). Toby knows the bank is ready to foreclose on the familys land, and he wants to leave it in a trust for his two sons. So he and Tanner are stealing from the bank only to give the money back to the bank to pay off debts. Whats fascinating about the story from Taylor Sheridan (SicarioŽ) is that its layered, piece by piece, to contin-uously reveal information the viewer doesnt necessarily expect. To wit, how they launder the money, Tobys real motivation for saving the land, etc., are all appropriately grounded in logic and reason. Even better, these gradual reveals are punctuated by standout supporting performances, especially Margaret Bow-man as a spirited waitress at the T-Bone caf, Katy Mixon as a waitress who flirts with Toby and Dale Dickey in the open-ing scene as a bank employee who gives the boys a piece of her mind. Movies go from good to great with these small standout turns, so kudos to casting directors Jo Edna Boldin and Richard Hicks for getting every role right. Of course its Mr. Pine, Mr. Foster and Mr. Bridges who lead the way. Mr. Pines approach is stoic and sure as a dad wholl do anything to provide for his kids, whereas Mr. Foster is unhinged as an ex-con who feels he has nothing to lose. As a weary widower whos dreading his oncoming retirement, Mr. Bridges so perfectly embodies churlish Marcus that he could very well be in line for a sup-porting actor Oscar nomination. A relative unknown from Britain, David Mackenzie announces his directorial presence in a major way with this film. Most impressively, he uses the arid, vast and sun-baked landscape to create a sense of isolation that accentuates how lonely the characters feel: Toby because hes divorced and rarely sees his kids, Tanner because hes fresh out of prison and cant acclimate back to society, and Marcus because hes about to move into a solitary, boring retirement. Toby and Tanner are close, but you sense they know its fleeting, as if theyre both lost causes searching for a purpose and hop-ing beyond all hope that what theyre doing will make someone elses life better. Its for this reason that we still like the brothers. But heck, we like Marcus too, especially his humorous and politically incorrect sentiments and uncanny instincts. How rare it is to see a movie in which you root for everyone in spite of their various shortcomings, and for it to be executed with great tension and sus-pense to the very end. Do not miss Hell or High Water.Ž Q dan >> Although it’s set in Texas, “Come Hell or High Water” was shot in remote areas throughout New Mexico. FILM CAPSULESFlorence Foster Jenkins +++ (Meryl Streep, Hugh Grant, Rebecca Ferguson) In 1944 New York City, wealthy socialite Florence Foster Jen-kins (Ms. Streep) aspires to be an opera singer in spite of her notable lack of ability. Ms. Streep and Mr. Grant are a formidable duo, but its director Stephen Frears (PhilomenaŽ) striking just the right tone of laughing at Florence but with the movie that makes it all work. Rated PG-13.Suicide Squad ++1/2 (Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto) The worlds most dangerous crim-inals are given a reprieve from prison to fight a deadly witch (Cara Delevingne). Robbie steals the movie as Jokers (Leto) squeeze Harley Quinn, and the action and soundtrack keep things popping, but the story has numerous problems. Set in the same DC Comics universe as Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.Ž Rated PG-13.Jason Bourne ++1/2 (Matt Damon, Alicia Vikander, Tommy Lee Jones) Bourne (Damon) gets new information about his past and has to fight off the CIA agents (Vikan-der, Jones, Vincent Cassel) who want him dead. The story has head scratch-ing moments, but the action is tense and exciting. Make sure youre up to speed on the three previous Damon-led BourneŽ films or youll be lost. Rated PG-13. Q


B12 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF AUGUST 18-24, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY In In 2010, after spending three months at Monets Giverny home and contem-plating his famous gardens, the artist-in-residence realized nobody had seen the famed lily pond below the surface. Obviously, I knew about Monet but being taken by his experience and seeing something new was very exciting,Ž Mr. Fox said. It was fantastic for me.Ž His video installation Giverny: Journal of an Unseen Garden,Ž featuring Monets aquatic muses is now on view at the Norton Museum of Art through Oct. 30. The looped footage plays across five large screens. By placing the screens consecu-tively, the installation keeps in line with the horizontal setting of Monets paint-ings in the Muse de lOrangerie in Paris. When the silent film begins, one can hardly make out the five projected scenes of murky waters and leafy greens. It pro-gresses at a slow pace and just like at the lOrangerie, foliage and water surround everything. The room becomes a sort of underworld, time slows down. One braces for a creature to appear but instead is treated to the colorful dance of Les Nymphas,Ž which enter delicately like the corps de ballet opening an act, except they are the main attraction. The cameras dont lie. The water lilies come in yellows, light and deep purples. The fragments hit by the filtering sunrays look as if they have caught fire. While filming them, the New Yorkbased artist sought out to capture the ever-changing light much as Monet did. However, Mr. Fox has a far more abstract obsession of his own that is fed in part by his Catholic upbringing. Im mostly interested in ritual and where ritual came from,Ž he said. What carries my work is the idea of how people are manipulated by forces they are not aware of.Ž Although he had employed video before in his artistic career, he never expected to use it during his stay at what is now the Monet Foundation in Giverny. After all, his main work consists of draw-ings, paintings and stainless steel site-specific sculptures. I could have just gone with the idea that Im a painter so Im just going to paint,Ž he said. Of course, painting would not have sufficed.Ž Three weeks of his internship had passed when the idea came to him. I cant tell you much more other than one day I was walking and then it just occurred to me that there had to be some-thing that even Monet hadnt seen,Ž Mr. Fox said. He was determined to find a new door into a world already heavily explored by tourists and fellow artists, not to men-tion by the master himself from the 1890s to 1926. Monet produced more than 200 paintings of his favorite motif, the water lilies. Thats just what survived. In a 1908 letter, the Impressionist writes: These water and reflection land-scapes have become an obsession. They are too much for an old mans strength. ƒ I have destroyed several of them.Ž Perhaps it was the instruction Mr. Fox received that the pond was off limits that pointed him precisely in that direction and later led him to submerge his camera using a string. There, he discovered a familiar world that was also entirely new and entirely his own. His little experiment was followed by official approval, better equipment and a daily filming schedule that also mimicked Monets work routine. When planning the life-size series of the lily pond views, Monet wished for the viewer to get lost in the paintings and leave behind the horrors of World War I, which had just ended. He meant for the canvases to stretch along two consecu-tive oval rooms of lOrangerie to convey a sense of infinity and spatiality, much like what Fox has done. However, the master did not get to see the opening and died a few months before, in 1926. Had he lived, he would have witnessed the lack of public interest in his water lilies. It wasnt until after World War II that his late work enjoyed a new appreciation. Asked whether the Impressionist would be pleased with Unseen Garden were he alive today, Mr. Fox said, I would hope so.Ž But more than that, he hopes his installation makes the viewer slow downŽ and feel the experience rather than collect facts. Its a notion he likes to revisit and represented once through a piece of a museum being flooded by water. So calm and beautiful to watch,Ž Mr. Fox said. Unseen GardenŽ is equally serene and striking and seemingly endless. The couch provided encourages a longer stay and most of the museum galleries are closed for renovations anyway. In the words of Monet again, one is to seek refuge for undisturbed meditation in the midst of a blossoming aquarium.Ž Q proceeds benefitting their favorite charity.

B14 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF AUGUST 18-24, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY VINOIt’s not just a guy thing anymoreIt wasnt all that long ago that you asked for the wine list in a restaurant and the server automatically handed it to the man at the table. Not any more. In years gone by most (if not all) winemaking operations were under the control of the male of the species. But theres been a shift over the last 30 years or so. First, several female winemakers „ Helen Turley, Pam Starr and Heidi Barrett in the U.S., for example „ have made a significant impact by mak-ing significant (and expensive) wines. And since winemaking is traditionally a family business, many winemakers have given their daughters major roles in the production and marketing sides of the operation. In Italy, top-level winemakers Angelo Gaja and Piero Antinori both have ceded a good deal of responsibility to their daughters. In this country, Tim Mondavis daughter Carissa plays a major role at the familys Continuum winery. The same thing is happening in other parts of the world. But France has always taken the lead in giving these opportunities to women. It goes as far back as 1805, when Cham-pagne maker Franois Cliquot died and left his winery to his wife, BarbeNicole Ponsardin. The widow „ veuve in French „ Cliquot built the company into the iconic enterprise it is today. Several other major wineries in Bor-deaux, Chateau Margaux and Chateau Lanessan among them, have prospered under the direction of female owners. But even more interesting is the way women think of wine, purchase it and drink it. Vinexpo, the worldwide trade marketing organization, researches this sort of thing, and the trends are very revealing. It has long been theorized that women perceive and actually taste wine differently than their male coun-terparts. There might be actual reasons for that, involving basic physiology and body chemistry. French wine critic Isa-bel Fort has written extensively about this phenomenon in her annual guide to wine for women. Subtitled How to Love and Understand Wine,Ž it runs 500-plus pages. In my experience, women direct their attention to the hedonistic side of wine consumption, focusing on the flavors, aromas and sensual aspects, while men tend to concentrate more on the grape varietal, soil type, where the wine was made ƒ the factual stuff. Plus, women think about and perceive wine in different ways. The vast majority of women believe that drink-ing wine is compatible with maintain-ing a healthy, balanced diet (this is particularly true in the U.S.). They also see wine as an enhancement for special events and fine food. Vinexpo research shows that older women enjoy wine more. More than 70 percent of women ages 60 and older say they drink at least one glass per week, compared to 60 percent of 18to 30-year-olds. Although its a common belief that women prefer white wines, research tells a different story. The split is actu-ally 60-40 in favor of reds. And when women buy wine, most of them dont depend on male advice or assistance. More than 60 percent of women in the U.S. make their own choices. So heres some advice for servers in fine dining restaurants as well as for the rest of us in general: When you bring the wine list to the table, ask who would like to have it. Theres an excel-lent chance that a discriminating and wine-savvy woman will be making the selection. Q Domaine du Tariquet Classic 2015 ($11) … From the region of Gascony southwest of Bordeaux, this wine is made with the traditional white grapes of the region, most of which are not all that familiar to American consum-ers: ugni blanc, colombard, and gros manseng. Its absolutely delicious, with intense (but not overwhelming) acid-ity and exuberant flavors of citrus and tropical fruit. Find it. Buy it. WW 94.Ask the Wine Whisperer Ive recently heard the terms verticalŽ and horizontalŽ wine tastings. What do they mean? „ Michele L., Palm BeachA vertical tasting involves sampling the same wine from several differ-ent vintages. This is very educational, because it reveals how wine from the same producer can vary depending on weather and harvest conditions from year to year. In a horizontal tasting, you sample various wines of one particular varietal and region (for example, Rus-sian River pinot noirs) from the same year. This allows you to discover the stylistic differences among individual producers. Q „ Jerry Greenfield, The Wine Whisperer, is creative director of Greenfield Advertising Group. His book Secrets of the Wine WhispererŽ is available on Amazon and at jerry FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE jan Bonefish Grill re-opened early this month in its new location, Mainstreet at Midtown, with a charity gesture, giving 50 percent of sales to the United Way of Palm Beach County. The community-based fund received $5,000. The popular seafood restaurant moved from its spot in The Shoppes at Oakbrook on U.S. 1 to Midtown on PGA Boulevard for its bustlingŽ envi-ronment, accord-ing to the manag-ing partner, Jeremy Sartwell Though the size of the new restau-rant is only 30 seats larger than the previ-ous spot „ 232 seats indoors and 34 on the patio „ the big difference diners will see is the centerpiece horseshoe bar. Its the first one of its size in a Bonefish Grill. Modern dcor features earth tones throughout, and a stainless steel wall sculpture of a bonefish with sequined scales. Tall sconces etched with man-grove trees used as a divider between the bar and main dining room are func-tional art. Familiar faces will greet and serve diners, since the staff followed Mr. Sartwell to the new locale. I was lucky not to lose one server,Ž he said. Thats been smooth, compared to other store openings.Ž Things are somewhat different in the back of the house, once home to Canti-na Laredo. The kitchen staff has actual-ly grown,Ž he said. And at the previous store we had written tickets for orders; here, we have monitors.Ž The electronics take a while to get used to, Mr. Sartwell said, but harder to learn is new placement of the equip-ment „ muscle memoryŽ relearning, he calls it. Open for dinner daily, lunch Monday through Saturday, and a Sunday brunch, the restaurant is offering a lighter summer menu, including wild sockeye salmon topped with spinach and bacon; dayboat scallops from Mas-sachusetts, with a corn risotto; and hand-cut grouper topped with shrimp and a citrus aioli. Special summer cocktails have fresh fruit „ strawberries and blackberries in the strawberry Rose martini, and water-melon in the fresh watermelon martini using house-made cucumber vodka.

After an eight-year absence, the family opened its new loca-tion in downtown West Palm Beach in 2014, serving up old favorites like pizzas and pasta dishes, as well as fusionŽ spe-cials. This fall, they plan to add their second location at 1548 N. U.S. Highway 1 in Jupiter. Co-owner, and Maria Abbenantes spouse, Rafaelle said so many customers from the North County area asked for a second location closer to them, they obliged once they found the right spot.

Hungry yet? I know I am. Q „ Sc ott Simmons Dustin P arfitt is no stranger to serving the rich and famous. His restaurant, Olis Fashion Cuisine has hosted many legendary faces since it opened six years ago. Lets see, there was Bill Clinton, Bill and Melinda Gates, Robert Duvall, Michael Bloomberg, Bruce Springsteen, Jimmy Buffett, Michael Jordan and rap-per turned home renovator Vanilla Ice, to name a few. None of them made him nervous.But a few weeks ago, Mr. Parfitt cooked for celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse, and that got the Wellington chef and restau-rateur a bit stressed. The menu included New York strip steak and octopus ala plancha. And it all turned out perfectly. That was the first time I cooked for a celebrity chef and I was nervous and excited,Ž Mr. Parfitt said. Mostly, though, Mr. Parfitt serves regular guests. He and his staff just treat them like big shots. Olis, owned by Mr. Parfitt and Juan Gando, took its name from Wellington pioneer Charles Oliver Wellington. The owners knew each other from having worked together at several Palm Beach restaurants, including Nick & Johnnies and Cucina Dell Arte. We wanted to bring Palm Beach-quality food and service to Wellington,Ž Mr. Parfitt said. Up until then there were mostly chain restaurants here.Ž The duo formed Fashion Cuisine Group, which has since opened other eateries in Wellington: The Grille Fash-ion Cuisine, the Seahorse Fashion Cui-sine and Whitehorse Fashion Cuisine for the Palm Beach International Equestrian Festival. We also have Olis food truck and front row catered seating at the Polo Club,Ž Mr. Parfitt said. In 2013, the Fashion Cuisine Group opened a restaurant on Clematis in West Palm Beach; however, that one didnt work out. Were happy in Wellington,Ž Mr. Parfitt said. We think we have our hands full and want to make everything we have even better.Ž During the season, Fashion Cuisine restaurants have 200 employees. The Fashion Cuisine moniker was inspired by a restaurant in Miami that Mr. Parfitt and his partners, all Hispanic, used to frequent. Beyond that, Mr. Parfitt explained, you eat with your eyes first. We love to use different colored-sauces and to stack things up so it looks amaz-ing.Ž The Wellington High School graduate did not train at any culinary school. Instead he learned the ropes by working for 10 years in the kitchen at a 5-star resort „ The Breakers in Palm Beach.

Fortunately, with recent breakthroughs in modern medi-cine, patients are now able to have these conversations with their urogynecolo-gist. I have been repeatedly asked questions on this subject, especially from patients who have had breast can-cer and are receiv-ing treatment to lower estrogen lev-els that have gone into menopause. They want to know whether there are any other options out there. My patients have told me how they were not prepared for the effect it would have on their sex life, that lubricants don t work well, and they cannot use the vaginal estrogens as they cause irritation and burning, not to men-tion that they are afraid of them, despite their doctors reassurances. One of the side effects of menopause that doesnt get discussed very often is the vaginal dryness and thinning of the tissues accompanying low estrogen levels. Symptoms may range from discomfort or pain with intercourse to recurring uri-nary tract or vaginal infections. While vaginal estrogens can be a safe and effective treatment, not everyone is able or willing to use them. Osphena is an oral medication, in the same family as Tamoxifen, designed to treat symptoms of vaginal atrophy (thin-ning and drying of the vaginal tissue), however, its effects on the uterus are similar to estrogen, and it may increase risks of blood clots similar to estrogens. It is not recommended for breast cancer survivors at this time. Fortunately, there is another option for vaginal atro-phy symptoms that has been shown to be effective and safe. The MonaLisaTouch laser therapy has been tested in Europe and the U.S. and has demonstrated significant effective-ness in relieving symptoms of vaginal atrophy. It is a quick, simple, and pain-free procedure that can be done without anes-thesia in the doctors office in just a few minutes. Sexual activity may be resumed in about 48 hours. Treatment consists of three sessions six weeks apart. Studies have demonstrated a dramatic improvement in vaginal blood sup-ply, elasticity and tone following treat-ment. The treatment lasts for a year, after which a touch-upŽ is usually needed for optimal results. Although the procedure is relatively new to the U.S., it has been used in Europe for several years and the data published from well-respected sources there and in this country have contin-ued to find evidence for its treatment benefits. Requirements for treatment include having an up-to-date pelvic/gynecologic examination, no current active vaginal infections or urinary infections, no histo-ry of vaginal/pelvic radiation treatment and no active vaginal disease or recent vaginal surgery. At this time, because the treatment is relatively new to the U.S., insurance does not cover it. However, it provides a safe and effective alternative to hormonal treatments.

4 healthy living AUGUST 2016 ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLY Angel E. Cuesta, M.D.Youthful Balance 10887 N. Military Trail, No. 7 Palm Beach Gardens561-537-0537 Youthful balance: Isn’t that what everyone is looking for?Testosterone replacement therapy for men T estosterone is often referred to as the male sex hormone because its responsible for male sex characteristics and men produce 10 times more of it than women. The maintenance of adequate testosterone levels in men is essential for mental, physical, emotional and sex-ual well-being. More recently, studies have identified the potential meta-bolic consequenc-es of testosterone decline, showing a potential role for low testosterone in age associated changes such as abdominal obesity, diabetes, high cho-lesterol, increased coronary risk fac-tors and metabolic syndrome. A recent study found that testos-terone therapy did not increase the risk of experienc-ing a heart attack or stroke for men with low testosterone levels and no prior history of heart disease. Unfortunately, after age of 30, testosterone begins to decline and most men will experience a 1 percent to 2 percent drop in testosterone levels per year. Fortunately, testosterone levels can easily be increased and the negative symptoms associated with low testosterone reversed. Many of the symptoms commonly associated with aging are actually caused by declining hormone levels, such as testosterone as well as growth hormone and thyroid hormone, to name a few. Restoring these levels may help keep the brain young, so you can think clearly and solve problems, reduce the risk for depression, reverse mood changes, build muscle strength and stamina, promote increased lean muscle mass while decreasing body fat, pre-serve bone density and thereby reduce the risk for osteoporosis. Optimal hormone levels enhance insulin sensitivity, making it a poten-tially useful tool in the treatment and prevention of type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome, promote healthy red blood cell production, which is essential because red blood cells are required to carry oxygen throughout the body and increase energy levels. Testosterone also is responsible for the maintenance of a healthy sex life, and sexual benefits of healthy testos-terone levels include: enhanced libido/sexual desire, increased overall sex life quality and reduced risk for impotence/erectile dysfunction (ED). According to the National Institutes of Health, estimates of the total number of American men who suffer from ED range from 15 million to 30 million. At age 40, approximately 40 percent of men are affected. This rate increases to nearly 70 percent in men age 70 years or older. After accounting for age, one of the most common causes of ED is hormonal insufficiency or hormonal imbalance. However, this is the easiest cause to correct as an individualized bio identical hormone replacement program may be all that is needed. Modifications to lifestyle will go a long way toward restoring your tes-tosterone levels, but it may not be enough. Most men will require testos-terone replacement therapy in order to obtain optimal testosterone levels. The most effective vehicle of testosterone replacement therapy for men is in the form of injections or creams. Our goal at Youthful Balance Medical Center is to restore your bodys hor-mones to their optimum levels by creat-ing a customized plan just for you using bio identical hormones. We offer personalized, individual therapies that are based on each patients unique hormonal makeup and their individualized symp-toms and concerns to transform your body into a YOUTHFUL BALANCE! So why just live longer when you can live better? Q Cancer screenings lead to early detection BY JL WATSONLee Memorial Health SystemHeading to the doctors office is easiest when there is a pressing need „ sore throat, broken bone or infection. Seek-ing care when healthy may seem unnec-essary, but its important to maintain a health calendar and schedule preventa-tive tests „ particularly those designed to detect cancer in its earliest stages. The American Cancer Society recommends the following cancer screenings.Breast cancer € Women ages 40-44 may begin annual mammograms. € Women ages 45-54 should get an annual mammogram. € Women ages 55 and older may switch to mammograms every two years, based on conversations with their physician.Colon and rectal cancer Starting at age 50, both men and women should have one of the follow-ing testing schedules: € Flexible sigmoidoscopy every 5 years, or € Colonoscopy every 10 years, or€ Double-contrast barium enema every 5 years, or € CT colonography every five years.Cervical CancerWomen ages 21 and older should be tested for cervical cancer. € Women ages 21-29 should have a Pap test done every three years. € Women ages 30-65 should have a Pap plus an HPV done every five years. € Women age 65 and older who have had regular cervical cancer testing in the past 10 years with normal results do not need cervical cancer testing Endometrial (uterine) Cancer(h2)At the time of menopause, all women should be told about the risks and symp-toms of endometrial cancer. Women should report any unexpected vaginal bleeding or spotting to their doctors. Some women „ because of their history „ may need to consider having a yearly endometrial biopsy. Please talk with a health care provider about your history.Prostate cancer Starting at age 50, men should talk to a health care provider about the pros and cons of testing so they can decide if testing is the right choice for them. African-Americans who have a father or brother who had prostate cancer before age 65 should talk with a health care provider starting at age 45. If you decide to be tested, get a PSA blood test with or without a rectal exam. How often youre tested will depend on your PSA level. To reduce risk, some things to do: Avoid all forms of tobacco, including e-cigarettes. Maintain a healthy weight.Get moving with regular physical activ-ity. Eat healthy with plenty of fruits and vegetables. Limit how much alcohol you drink (if you drink at all). Protect your skin. Know yourself, your family history and your risks. Get regular check-ups and cancer screening tests. Q Many of the symptoms commonly associated with aging are actually caused by declining hormone levels, such as testosterone as well as growth hormone and thyroid hormone.... Restoring these levels may help keep the brain young.

What you say can create calm or chaos. The goal should always be to prevent the person from feeling stressed, threatened or contradicted.

And the ingrained patterns are most difficult to avoid between a child and a parent or between a husband and a wife.

6 healthy living AUGUST 2016 ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLYTaking aim at brain cancer Technology targets tumors in 5 days or less I t is the one word no one ever wants to hear their doctor say „ cancer. But according to the American Cancer Society, more than 1.7 million Americans will receive that diagnosis in 2016 alone. The good news is that the majority of Americans can now continue to live full lives following their initial diagnosis, thanks in large part to the new medical technology and treatments now available. In the past, having a cancerous tumor removed meant undergoing inva-sive surgery and recuperating in the hospital for days. Thankfully, as a radiation oncologist today, I have access to leading-edge technology that enables me to target and eliminate many types of tumors without even mak-ing an incision. Stereotactic radio-surgery destroys tumors with extremely precise, very intense doses of radiation while minimizing damage to healthy tissue, offering accuracy akin to the sharpness of a surgeons scalpel. However, theres no traditional surgery, anesthesia or hospital stay required. In fact, its a pain-free cancer treatment. Jupiter Medical Center was the first hospital in Florida to offer treatment with the CyberKnife M6. Today, our treatment team is the most experienced in the state when it comes to targeting tumors with the revolutionary M6 system. Having performed stereotactic radiosurgery for more than 15 years now, I can attest that the M6 technology is a leap forward in cancer care. It can treat tumors anywhere in the body, from the lungs to the brain to the prostate, and is the best radiation oncology solution for targeting, tracking and adjusting in real-time to moving tar-gets with extreme precision and accuracy. The CyberKnife Robotic Radiosurgery System improves on other radiosur-gery techniques by eliminating the need for stereotactic frames. As a result, the CyberKnife System enables us to achieve a high level of accuracy in a noninva-sive manner and allows patients to be treated on an outpatient basis. The system can also pinpoint a tumors exact location in real time using X-ray images taken during the brain cancer treatment that refer-ence the unique bony structures of a patients head. Another distinguishing feature of CyberKnife is its robotic arm, modeled after technology used in car manufacturing. Instead of welding parts on an automo-bile assembly line, this arm travels around the patient to deliver hundreds of beams of radiation to a tumor from many differ-ent angles, with absolute precision. Unlike other radiation systems, the CyberKnife System is able to treat patients in one to five days as opposed to what can be months in other forms of daily radiation treatment. This is because of the CyberKnife Systems extreme accuracy, which enables us to deliver the maximum dose very precisely. Not only do most CyberKnife patients avoid surgery and finish treatment in a week, their brief course of treatment is pain-free. Having experience with many types of radiosurgery systems, Im extremely excited at the speed and convenience this M6 technology allows me to offer patients. With the M6, the duration of each individual treatment session is dramati-cally shortened „ typically lasting twenty minutes to an hour per treatment. When receiving treatments, patients simply lie down on a padded table and breathe normally while the CyberKnife System quietly moves around them. Even during their week of treatment, the majority of patients go about their regular routines. The CyberKnife System is a great option for patients who are unable to receive surgery, have surgically complex tumors or are seeking an alternative to surgery that will allow them to continue their active lifestyles with minimal dis-ruption. Our comprehensive cancer program is accredited by the Commission on Cancer and our radiation oncology department is accredited by the American College of Radiology. As a patient you can be assured we have met the highest quality standards established by these national organizations. At the Foshay Cancer Cen-ter, patients get the benefit of an entire team of caring, compassionate healthcare professionals working across the contin-uum of care from diagnosis to treatment into survivorship. If you have been diagnosed with cancer you have more than treatment options, you have a choice. Choose the very latest CyberKnife treatment at the Foshay Cancer Center.

8 healthy living AUGUST 2016 ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLY ST. MARYS MEDICAL CENTERIn honor of August as National Breastfeeding Awareness Month, the labor and delivery team at St. Marys Medical Center would like to share some of the benefits associated with breastfeeding children. Breastfeeding is a natural process that may take some time to get accustomed to, for both you and your baby. If you feel you need additional guidance or educational resources, talk with your doctor or a certified lactation consul-tant for suggestions on how to help you both during this time. Studies have shown that breastfed children and those who receive expressed breast milk for six months may be better protected against some common childhood illnesses and infec-tions, such as diarrhea, ear infections and respiratory illnesses. Additionally, when compared to formula-fed infants, breastfed infants may be less likely to develop childhood obesity.Helpful tips for a successful start To begin, you should start breastfeeding as soon as possible after delivery because your babys instinct to nurse is very strong at this time. Breastfed babies usually eat more often than formula-fed babies because breast milk is more eas-ily digested. Newborns tend to nurse every two to three hours, which stimu-lates the production of breast milk. Watch your baby for signs of wanting to nurse, such as sucking motions or lip movements. Let your baby nurse from one breast for about 15 minutes, burp the baby, and then nurse from the other breast. If your child does not latch on again, try starting the next feeding with the second breast. Avoid giving your baby a pacifier for about a month as this could interfere with breastfeeding. Youll be able to tell if your baby is getting enough milk by keeping track of wet and dirty diapers. In the beginning, your baby should have only one or two wet dia-pers a day. As your milk supply increases, this should increase to five or six wet dia-pers and three to four dirty diapers daily. At St. Marys Medical Center, our lactation team is committed to helping mothers breastfeed successfully, even after theyve gone home. In addition to providing bedside guidance, lactation consultants are available as needed for private sessions in our lactation center to help patients further solidify this bond with their babies.Benefits for mothersCertain hormones released during breastfeeding can help the mothers uterus decrease in size and may delay the return of menstrual periods. Moth-ers who breastfed their babies also may have a reduced risk for developing breast, uterine or ovarian cancer. Reading educational materials on this process during pregnancy may help give you a better idea about what to do for a smooth start. Additionally, speaking with friends who have breastfed or attending a breastfeeding support group meeting can help facilitate your experience. St. Marys Medical Center offers a weekly breastfeeding support group on Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. in our Lactation Center. Led by one of our International Board Certified Lactation Consultants, this support group is open to all breastfeeding mothers in the com-munity, including employees, patients and mothers who are already at home with their children.We heal for momsIn addition to being recognized by Healthgrades as part of the Top 5% in the Nation for Labor and Delivery, The Birthplace at St. Marys Medical Center provides families with a Level III NICU, the highest designation by the state, and a lactation team that is dedicated to pro-moting a healthy breastfeeding process between mothers and babies.

More often than not, the student experience of a boy or girl on the spectrum is extremely different from that of a student not on the spec-trum. But it doesnt have to be that way. The new Oakstone Academy Palm Beach, near Southern Boulevard in West Palm Beach, is offering parents a better way through an innovative approach called social immersion.Ž The approach was developed at an Oakstone facility in Ohio and has achieved astounding results. It creates a completely inclusive environment for children with autism spectrum disorders, allowing them to be full participants in the classroom with peers who are not on the autism spectrum. Children are resilient, and when we challenge them and immerse them in a productive environment they tend to respond well,Ž says Oakstone founder Dr. Rebecca Morrison. After just one year of social immersion, weve seen children on the spectrum see gains of 15 IQ points, all thanks to being completely woven into the fabric of school life.Ž Its believed Oakstone Palm Beach is the only school in Florida that practices social immersion. Its part of why they have such an engaged and passionate volunteer base which includes local attorney Joe Landy, of Lesser, Lesser, Landy & Smith. I see miracles happen there on a daily basis,Ž says Mr. Landy, who also is a volunteer on Oakstones board of directors. Words cannot express the profound impact the school has on each and every student and the good they are doing for the Palm Beach County com-munity.Ž Mr. Landy says the Oakstone board focuses on hiring and keeping talented, highly qualified teachers and maintain-ing small class sizes. Children on the autism spectrum learn how to socialize and interact with others while students without disabilities learn about compas-sion and leadership. Dr. Morrison, a public school teacher for 14 years, agrees that social immer-sion has many benefits. I was convinced that children on the autism spectrum were blocked from expressing their true intelligence due to their severe social deficits. Social deficits falsely indicated cognitive delays and inappropriate or absent social skills and prevented chil-dren from being accepted.Ž Immersing children with their peers in a support-ive setting that emphasizes growth and acceptance has proved to be a break-through. The West Palm Beach campus of Oakstone Academy offers full-day kindergarten through eighth grade. Stu-dents are offered a range of hands-on experiences, collaborative learning groups, and traditional-style instruc-tion. From traditional instruction to innovative approaches, Oakstone pro-vides balance for developing solid aca-demic foundations in reading and math, with the excitement and fun of learning creatively.Ž Oakstone Academy is at 345 S Military Trail, West Palm Beach; (561) 585-7800 or Q COURTESY PHOTO From left, Howard Brown, CFO; Kerry Johnson, Assistant Chief Nursing Officer; Christy Wise, ER Director; David O'Brien, CNO; Todd Wagner, ER RN; Jeffrey M.
