It occurred during National Womens His-tory Month. During the month, thousands of schools, organizations, and communi-ties host events nationwide in celebration of womens history. It is a teach-in broad-ly supported by dignitaries of all stripes. Everyone, it seems, cant say enough nice things about womens historical contribu-tions to this country. It wasnt always so. It took decades for the menfolk to warm up to the idea that women as historical figures were worth celebrating. But wouldnt you know it, President Jimmy Carter broke the ice. Back in March 1980, he declared National Womens History Week with a presidential proclamation. In it, he wrote, I urge libraries, schools, and community organizations to focus their observances on the leaders who struggled for equal-ity „ Susan B. Anthony, Sojourner Truth, Lucy Stone, Lucretia Mott, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Harriet Tubman and Alice Paul. Understanding the true history of our country will help us to comprehend the need for full equality under the law for all our people.Ž This is the same man, now 93, who said recently he believes the mistreat-ment of women and girls is the No. 1 human rights abuse in the world „ because, he said, In general, men dont give a damn.Ž After Carters proclamation, it wasnt clear the celebration would stick. Each year required a renewed effort to get it on the presidents desk, and the date kept changing. It was also obvious that a single week hardly did justice to achieve-ments of American women. By 1987, popular momentum grew and the short course gave way. A monthlong celebration replaced it, to be held in perpetuity. Since then, every president, including President Trump, has honored the tradition. Thus was the stage set for the University of Rochesters announcement that it had acquired a newly found collec-tion of hundreds of letters and docu-ments, written between 1869 and 1880 by the movers-and-shakers of the suffrage movement, the most prominent being Susan B. Anthony. Isabella Beecher Hooker was the correspondent who, back in the day, tucked the documents away for safekeeping. The battered crate holding the cache turned up in a barn almost 140 years later. The universitys rare books librarian, Lori Birrell, said Hooker was from a fam-ily of reformers and half-sister to abo-litionist Henry Ward Beecher, educator Catharine Beecher and novelist Harriet Beecher Stowe. The large volume of materials covers a critical time in the suffrage movement. Said Birrell, With the 14th Amendment just passed, newly enshrining a host of citizenship rights, and the debate rag-ing over granting black men the right to vote, the time was very contentious.Ž The movements leaders suffered from deep angst as they watched their chances slip away of womens inclusion in the 15th Amendment. Hookers communications capture the intersection between dueling factions. The internal politics threatened to tear the movement asunder. The archive is expected to provide new insights into the movements struggle to move for-ward in the face of daunting barriers to its success. In reflection, Birrell said, Something that Ive been really struck by is just how exhausting it must have been to try to keep going for this long. You get to this period in the 1870s and theyve tried everything „ state, national, they tried voting and then got arrested for it in 1872. Theyve tried all of these things and they just kept at it. To read that year after year after year in these letters is simply amazing.Ž Well, Ms. Birrell, here we are in 2017. The modern womens movement is no less amazing nor the struggles any less exhausting than those our predecessors encountered in decades past. For example, Vice President Mike Pence recently cast the tie-breaking vote in the U.S. Senate to approve legislation that allows states to deny federal family-planning funds to more than 650 Planned Parenthood clinics because they provide abortion counseling and legal, safe abor-tions. Federal law already bars the use of tax dollars for abortion services, except in the case of rape, incest and risk to the womans health. Once President Trump signs the bill into law, millions of poor and low-income women are at risk of losing their access to family-planning and reproductive healthcare services. Just last month, President Trump signed something else: his proclamation declaring March as National Womens History Month. In it he said, Ameri-ca will continue to fight for womens rights and equality across the country and around the world. Though poverty holds back many women, America can-not and will not allow this to persist. We will empower all women to pursue their American dreams, to live, work and thrive in safe communities that allow them to protect and provide for them-selves and their families.Ž He added, America is also mindful of the fight that continues for so many women around the world, often not protected and treated disgracefully as second-class citizens.Ž Truer lies were never spoken.

This column first ran on April 15, 2015. For some time now, many Americans have recognized that presidential candidates often drift like rudderless yachts away from the row-boat experiences of ordinary citizens.Since a conservative Supreme Court has established campaign finance laws that allow billionaires to unduly sway elections, many Americans also recognize that some-thing has to change. It wont be the campaign finance laws „ not in time for the 2016 election, which is only 18 months away. And probably not anytime soon thereafter. So that means the temper and quality of the candidates themselves must change. If we as a people cannot inure ourselves to the propagandistic influence of huge wealth, perhaps we can require our leaders to inure themselves. From now on in the United States, presidential candidates should be required to demonstrate new levels of competence, experience and understanding, as well as resistance to big-bucks influence. How? By entering and graduating from a demanding United States Presidential Academy. Such an elite academy would require the discipline, brains and toughness that our military academies demand of their graduates, but without some of the martial trappings. In loose terms, the education of a president would be based on sharing and under-standing the experiences of his or her fellow Americans. USPA graduate goals should include: € Understanding the mindsets of working people and nonor under-working people. € Acquiring a strong education in history, literature and the sciences, especially Earth sciences.€ Mastering the old virtues of our greatest presidents, to develop the char-acters of Washington and Adams, Lin-coln and the Roosevelts, Truman, Eisen-hower and Kennedy.April, so far, has been a particularly pointed reminder of the need for such an academy. Florida alone has now offered up two of the three candidates Most Likely To Succeed in their quest for the White House in 2016: Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio. The third newly announced and Most Likely candidate is Hillary Clinton, who has very little to do with Florida judging by her suntan. As for Jeb Bush, who grew up rich and privileged, and Sen. Rubio, who escaped his working-class roots in West Miami as fast as he could and began (in 2010) spending nights partying on a yacht anchored in the Hamptons and owned by one of the Fanjul brothers (owners of Domino Sugar, Florida Crystals, C&H Sugar, and so on), both are in desperate need of the hard training and preparation implicit in a USPA education. So is Mrs. Clinton, along with the likes of Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Scott Walker on the right, or Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders on the left. All of them need the hard training, since each of them has been caught eyeballing the White House and drooling. Upon reporting for duty, every USPA candidate would be sent out alone to buy his or her clothes at Goodwill, then buy a car for less than $2,000, then pay for gas, insur-ance and repairs at the nearest used-car lot, then secure an apartment with at least one bedroom, and then work 35 to 40 hours a week at a job paying minimum wage, while supporting two young children alone, for a year. Since the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals might complain about the hardship of such training on children, they could be wind-up dolls, as long as they cried every three hours during the night, defecated regularly into their diapers, and passed their colds to the candidates, while also demanding a lot of attention after day-care „ which, by the way, each candidate would have to pay for at a rate of $280 a week, per child. The second and third years at the USPA would be devoted almost solely to academic education, punctuated at great length by steady work as ditch-diggers, tomato pick-ers, Walmart clerks, nurses aides, truck driv-ers, factory-line workers, janitors, restaurant servers, and fast-food fry cooks. Reading in literature would include The Constitution, Bill of Rights, and the Federalist Papers, several histories of the United States, and the novels, stories, poems and essays of such writers as Cooper, Melville, Twain, Stowe, Alcott, B ellamy, Chopin, Baum, James, Wharton, Sinclair, Wolfe, Cather, Cummings, Dreiser, Fitzgerald, Hemingway, Faulkner, Percy, Porter, Saroyan, Penn Warren, Salin-ger, Berry, Baldwin, Chandler, Kerouac, Lee, Styron, Malamud, Morrison, Welty, Erdrich, Allende, Hijuelos, McCarthy, Hilliard, McMurtry, Cisneros, Kingsolver, and a few hundred others. Training in science would include short expeditions to points ranging from the North Pole to the equator, along with both lab and academic work focusing in par-ticular on climate change and its causes and consequences. Science, by the way, is spelled, S-C-I-E-N-C-E (for the benefit of Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz). Finally, each candidate would be required to master several of the skills of Americas greatest elected leaders, starting with combat. In the tradition of George Washington, who had a number of horses shot out from under him „ and since the U.S. typically has a war or two going somewhere (and if not, we can always start a small one for the candidates) „ each aspirant would be trained at the U.S. Army Infantry School at Fort Benning, and then dropped into a front-line combat unit. In addition, and in the tradition of Abe Lincoln, the Roosevelts, Truman, Eisenhow-er and JFK, candidates would have to hold an axe at arms length for an hour, charge up a hill under fire, smoke a long cigar, fire field artillery, plan the invasion of Europe, and drive a PT boat (but better than Kennedy, who managed to get his sunk). Only then, would candidates be allowed to place their names in that sacred sanctu-ary: the American voting booth.And only then could they list their names under those hallowed words: For Presi-dent.Ž Q The Crisis of TrumpismTrumpism is in crisis.This isnt a function of poll numbers, or any melodrama of the past months, but something more fundamental: No office-holder in Washington seems to understand President Donald Trumps populism or have a cogent theory of how to effect it in practice, including the president himself. House Speaker Paul Ryan isnt a populist and doesnt want to be a populist. He has spent his adult life committed to a traditional limited-government agenda. He crafted his own platform during the cam-paign, the so-called Better Way agenda, to differentiate congressional Republicans from Trump. Trump, for his part, has lacked the knowledge, focus or interest to translate his populism into legislative form. Hes deferred to others on legislative priorities and strategies, and his abiding passion in the health-care debate was, by all accounts, simply getting to a signing ceremony. In light of all this, the product of the Ryan-Trump partnership was a health care bill bizarrely at odds with a national elec-tion Republicans had just won on the strength of working-class voters. Under the GOP replacement, fewer people would have had coverage, and workers further down the income scale would have been particularly hard hit. Neither of these facts seemed to exercise the White House enough to try to do anything to fix them. Maybe Ryan doesnt getŽ the new political reality created by Trumps victory, as the presidents boosters like to say. But what excuse does the president himself have for evidently not getting it, either? A President Trump acting more in keeping with his free-floating reflex to take care of people, as expressed in speeches and interviews, would have pushed the health bill to the left. But Trump so far hasnt fol-lowed the logic of his own politics. His path not taken would have been to give an inaugural address with less carnage and more kumbayah. Immediately invite Chuck Schumer to the White House and tell him, Chuck, youre not leaving this building until we agree on an infrastructure package.Ž Take the resulting big-spending proposal and dare the GOP leadership to defy him. Pass it with a bipartisan coalition. Now that the initial health-care bill has gone down, theres loose talk from the White House of wooing Democrats, but a lot has transpired the past few months that makes this much harder. Most importantly, the left-wing resistanceŽ to Trump is fully activated and prepared to exact punish-ment on any quislings. If things continue to go badly over this first year, its easy to see Trump turning to the New York Democrats in his White House. This would entail less emphasis on trade, immigration and fights with the mainstream media, and more emphasis on a nonideological economic boosterism. The loose antecedent for this scenario is Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who swept into office in California as a drain-the-swamp reformer after winning a populist crusade, and then recalibrated to accom-modate the system after suffering politi-cally damaging setbacks. The range of possible outcomes of the Trump presidency is still wide. Unexpect-edly, one of them is that his most die-hard populist supporters will eventually be able to say that Trumpism, like socialism, hasnt failed, its just never been tried.

PET TALES Purr therapy BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationWhen their patient received a terminal cancer diagnosis, the staff at the Oregon nursing and rehabilitation facil-ity where he was cared for offered him anything he wanted: cupcakes and ice cream for every meal, a pile of puppies to play with or anything else he could name. All I want is to have a cat on my lap again,Ž he said. Basil to the rescue. The orange-andwhite tabby, one of only 100 or so ther-apy cats recognized by therapy animal organization Pet Partners, made regular visits to the man for the last four weeks of his life. That was really special to me,Ž says Tina Parkhurst of Beaverton, Oregon, who fostered and then adopted Basil and her brother, Mac, after they were found in a field when they were about two weeks old. Though not as numerous as therapy dogs, therapy cats throughout the coun-try provide people of all ages and health conditions with unconditional love and comfort. Their visits can help improve patients mobility, memory, commu-nication, pain management and self-esteem, or simply make them smile and laugh. Often, people reminisce about previous cats in their lives. Parkhurst was familiar with the concept of therapy cats when she began fostering Basil and Mac. She recognized special qualities in their personalities that made her wonder if they would be suitable for the work. They connected easily with people and had calm natures. Basil seemed a little more fearless than Mac, so Parkhurst began training her first, teaching her to wear a harness and leash and taking her on visits to a big box pet supply store. Eventually, they went through the Pet Partners training program, earning a perfect score in the evaluation. Now Basil and Parkhurst make visits to facilities two or three times a week. Basil gets a bath before every visit, and shes trained to sit on a towel that is placed on a bed or someones lap. To entertain residents, she sits up on her hind legs and gives a high-five. But her best trickŽ is her ability to help people relax. Parkhurst recalls one woman suffering from dementia whose daughter had invited them to visit. Because of her dementia, the woman had become increasingly aggressive and agitated, unable to sleep despite heavy doses of medication. When Basil came to visit, the woman was sitting in a recliner, her daughter at her side. We started to talk, and I asked if she would like to have Basil on her lap,Ž Parkhurst says. She said, That would be nice. I put Basils blanket on her lap, put Basil down and in three minutes this woman who would not sleep unless she was heavily medicated was crashed out like a light. Basil was out like a light, too. Her daughter sat there and quietly cried. She said, My mom hasnt slept like this in weeks and weeks.Ž Because they are people-friendly in a variety of settings, many active or retired show cats make therapy visits, but any cat with a friendly, calm nature can become a therapy cat with the right training.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 13-19, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLYSome of the capabilities of this emerging technology as it is being used across the region: € Students at Florida Gulf Coast University are printing out prosthetic hands for a local elementary school boy. € A Riviera Beach-based design and manufacturing company, RGF Environ-mental, has made its own 3D printers to create high-definition parts for air and water purifiers. € Libraries in Charlotte County are just starting to test out new 3D printers that will be available to the public in the fall. € And 3D Printing of Florida, a design and print shop in Naples, helps entre-preneurs create just about whatever they can imagine. We purchased a cus-tom designed 7-inch tall print of Florida Weeklys Paper Boy mascot ($249.10 including tax) to get a better idea of how the printing process works. As 3D printing becomes more common both by consumers and businesses, with printers capable of producing a vast array of sizes, shapes and materi-als, there are also big implications for manufacturers, designers and intellec-tual property rights issues. Companies that make things capable of being printed cheaply in 3D may in the next decade start to deal with circumstances simi-lar to what the music industry faced as file-sharing became common on a mas-sive scale, suggested John F. Hornick, a Washington, D.C.-based intellectual property attorney and author of 3D Printing Will Rock the World.Ž While there is little case law regarding 3D printing at this point, he believes it will probably not ultimately be fea-sible to try to sue everyone who prints out products protected by intellectual property rules. Mr. Hornick quotes MIT professor Neil Gershenfeld who said, You cant sue the human race.Ž As a result, he envisions as one possibility something like an iTunes for thingsŽ business model for purchasing files with 3D objects. The way the music industry used to police itself was with copyrights,Ž he said. If they saw that you were down-loading music, they might come after you. But then they started to realize there was so much of it happening and it was so easy that copyright wasnt really adequate any longer to protect artists rights. So they came up with the iTunes business model which made it cheaper and easy enough to get music that you were unlikely to steal it.Ž He pointed out that big brand-name companies such as Toshiba and Canon are developing desktop machines, and believes that in the next decade, a vari-ety of 3D printers will be common in homes to print convenient things „ whether a small kitchen gadget or a tool for the woodworking shop in your garage. Now, hobbyist desktop printers generally cost anywhere from less than $500 to $5,000. The printers are becoming more common in the business and industrial world as well, with costs that top out at about $5 million, Mr. Hornick said. The technology has been around for over 30 years, but I view it as not being a mature industry,Ž he said, with it mostly being used for prototypes and design. But over the last several years the tech-nology is being used more and more for production parts and so because of that you have an industry thats been around for 30 or so years but its almost like its a new industry.Ž How a basic 3D print job worksTo print out an object, computer software slices it up and sends it to the printer to be printed one small layer at a time. And instead of ink onto paper, plastic is fed through a heated nozzle onto a build plate. First, you create a 3D design on your computer or download one off the inter-net, explained Aaron Blumberg, who helps provide training on how to use 3D printers for The Southwest Florida Library Network. There are many design programs, such as CAD software, which is what architects use to create blue prints. Tinkercad is a good one for starters, for kids or adults, Mr. Blumberg said. It walks you through the process of making pret-ty much any object (though the quality of the print can vary widely). Youre really limited to your imagination, usually,Ž he said. Or instead of creating your own thingamajig, you could download a file from an open-source 3D library of things such as MakerBots Thingiverse with designs the company has created. Then you save your work as an STL file and use the printing software that came with the printer or an open-source software to send it to the printer. You get a print page preview, kind of like with an Adobe or Word document, and at that point you can manipulate the print to some extent, such as sizing or adding scaffolding that pops off when youre done. Then once thats taken care of you pretty much hit print,Ž Mr. Blumberg said. The file goes to the printer, which starts heating up the extruder nozzle. Once heated it grabs the filament from a spool and starts pushing it through onto the build plate a layer at a time. Depend-ing on the quality, size and density, items could take anywhere from 20 minutes to 36 hours, Mr. Blumberg has found.At FGCU, printing prosthetics If the internet is full of 3D toys and trinkets you can download and print for your amusement, there are also greater possibilities emerging. A website called is an open-source site and volunteer network dedicated to making 3D printed prosthetics for children. It has enabled undergraduate students in Florida Gulf Coast Universitys bioen-gineering department to download for free copies of a prosthetic hand, which they custom fit to a patient. Then they can test it out and make modifications such as improving its gripping strength or adding friction between fingers and objects. North Fort Myers resident Tina Tillmans 8-year-old son, James Tillman IV, or Jimmy, is getting the chance to test out the hand and help the students improve it both for himself and potentially other 3DFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTOSJimmy Tillman, here with his mom, Tina, is working with FGCU bioengineering students to help improve and customize a prosthetic hand available for download at The hand, printed off one of the university’s midline desktop 3D printers, requires some assembly. FGCU biomedical engineering major Tony Grippo and other students use feedback from Jimmy to improve the printed hand. John Hornick is a Washington D.C.-based intellectual property rights attorney.“Over the last several years the technology is being used more and more for production parts and so because of that you have an industry that’s been around for 30 or so years but it’s almost like it’s a new industry.” — John F.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF APRIL 13-19, 2017 NEWS A9patients. The Tillmans were referred by their orthopedist to FGCUs Dr. Derek Luca, an assistant professor in bioengi-neering, and some of his students. Tony Grippo, a 23-year-old biomedical engineering major who is finishing up his junior year at FGCU, has helped lead the extracurricular project. Jimmy, who was born without a fully formed left hand „ his dominant one „ con-trols his new printed one by flexing his wrist muscles to open or close the fingers. Besides making changes to the hand such as adjusting the placement of the thumb to make it easier to pick things up, Mr. Grippo has also considered changes such as adding Lego bumps to the surface so James can build on it. I want it to be not only as good as a hand but I want it to be something he can boast about as well,Ž he said. One of the benefits of 3D printing technology is the ability to make tweaks easily and cheaply, or print replacement parts if Jimmy breaks them during an activity such as bike riding or climbing trees „ or if he grows an inch and needs a size adjustment. Mr. Grippo and his classmates used Solidworks software to render the hand, and printed it out on an Ultimaker 2 Extended, one of FGCUs midline desk-top 3D printers available to students. It takes about 10 hours to print out. The hand is an affordable option for Jimmy while hes growing up, Ms. Till-man said. Later he can decide if hed like a more permanent prosthetic hand or would rather go without one, as he has already been able to do most activities other kids can do without it. Its also less expensive and less bulky than a tra-ditional prosthesis, and it can be worn while swimming. Jimmy likes working with Mr. Grippo and the other students. Its very exciting when youre a 7-year old boy and you get to work with these really, really, really big kids, and you get to tell them what to do,Ž Ms. Tillman said. Thats really cool. But he also likes that hes going to be able to help one of his friends.Ž He tells his mom, I can make it better for someone like me.Ž While FGCU has long had 3D printing capability, Dr. Lura said, (O)ur ability for students to have access to it and the cost has gone down substan-tially in the last few years.Ž The department plans to add another higher resolution printer soon that will also allow them to print in different plastics. While students enjoy using the printers, attempting to make smaller or intricate parts expose their limitations, a useful learning experience, Dr. Lura said: The initial reaction is always, hey, thats really cool. But then once they use it for a while they get frustrated by the fact that it doesnt work perfectly every time. At some point, they start trying to push the limits of what the machines can do and they realize that this, like all things, its not a miracle magic printing machine. It has its own limitations.ŽInside a 3D print shop In a Naples business district, 3D Printing of Florida is a shop and design studio that prints out all kinds of objects for clients, such as lifelike wedding cake toppers of the bride and groom. Owner Michael Carufe, 32, is a former BMW technician who grew up in Naples. Im an electronic whiz kid, as they say,Ž Mr. Carufe said, someone who has always loved inventing and design. (3D printing) was just a way to express my thoughts in a real space. Its one thing to draw something and another to make it.Ž There are few limits on forms he can print, he says, for instance a model of a Tyrannosaurus Rex hes working on for a local school. He is able to print avion-ics as well as medical products, such as a 3D replica of an MRI that could help doctors better fix a shattered bone. The shop also often combines traditional or CNC machining, such as fabricating soft metal or wood, with 3D printing. People always ask me what can we make,Ž he said. The list is easier to tell you what we cant make. We dont make firearms ƒ and nothing that can be launched to the moon.Ž They created and printed Florida Weeklys Paper Boy mascot on a computer system built by Mr. Carufe, which includes virtual reality goggles to help visualize an object in full-life size and fine tune small details. They also have the capability to scan in and print rep-licas of people or large objects on site like pictures come to life, expressions on faces complete. For now, full-color 3D printing is outsourced and needs to be ordered well in advance. It requires a different printer and material, made mostly of gypsum powder.The shop usually turns out two prototypes per week or more, original inven-tions from local designers or entrepre-neurs. One common use of 3D printing is creating models of products to help attract investors, or sometimes the end product itself, whether a fishing lure or your idea for a new ergonomic computer mouse. 3D print manufacturing Over the last decade, a Riviera Beachbased company that designs and manu-factures systems to purify air, water and food, has built its own 3D printers. RGF Environmental Group Inc. started making the printers over the last decade as a cost-effective way to manu-facture intricate shapes for products that, for instance, clean air in a car or a home, or reduce odors and bacteria in water using advanced oxidation systems. Theyre finally getting commercialized to the point where the prices are down and a lot of the companies could afford them, but initially we did it our-selves,Ž said Walter Ellis, executive vice president and general manager. Were using them every day now. Initially it was just for new product development and design concepts and things like that.Ž The company now has four printers and their latest, under development, will print with ceramics and metal. They print both for design, to test items, and to create final, patented products. Mr. Ellis describes the ceramic material as almost like a very thick tooth-paste. It is actually pushed out with a piston down through the nozzle, layer by layer.Ž Then its air dried and fired off in a kiln. For metal printing, one method uses a printer that sets down a thin metal layer in powder form, then melts layer after layer over it using a laser. Designing their own printers also allows them to print larger objects as well as optimize tiny details in high resolution for an optimal look and fit. We can do layers now that are one micron thick,Ž Mr. Ellis said. That took a long time to get.Ž The applications of 3D printing are endless. From simple “ gurines and objects to prosthetic limbs and organs to entire houses. The technology is advancing rapidly. The star in the creation of 3D printed objects is, of course, the 3D printer, but the process begins with an idea and computer software. 3D printing processPreparation Extruder X axis Y axis Z axis Filament Build platePrintingSimilar to common of“ ce and home printers the 3D printers head moves back and forth (X) and side-to-side (Y). Enter the Z axis (up and down). The 3D print head, called the extruder, pulls in the “ lament material, heats it and distributes it to the build plate in thin layers measuring about 20 microns. It continues stacking layers until the structure is complete. The “ nished model, called a mesh, is prepared and sent to the 3D printer. Artists use CAD software to create a mesh.

Aaron Blumberg helps train members who borrow the printers for use for pro-graming or outreach. They have three printers, a MakerBot, Afinia H800, and a CubePro Trio, a larger, higher-end printer. I call MakerBot my workhorse because I can do large quantities on it and I dont usually have to worry about it clogging or something,Ž said Mr. Blumberg, SWFLNs continuing educa-tion coordinator. Fixing a clog can be as simple as popping some parts off and removing plas-tic to unscrewing the entire extruder, taking plastic out, and reassembling. Some of the printers we have there are actually pieces in it that were print-ed on another 3D printer,Ž Mr. Blumberg said. So if you have a part broken you actually have the files to print out the parts and fix your printer.Ž PLA and ABS are the most common types of biodegradable plastic for 3D printing. You can get a lot of print jobs out of one spool,Ž Mr. Blumberg said. MakerBot advertises a 1 kilogram natural colored ABS spool for $43 which the company says is enough to print 392 chess pieces (12 complete sets but only in one color). Another color spool costs $48. Some local libraries are just getting started with 3D programs, including The Charlotte County Library System, which recently purchased printers for each of its four branches. Well be launching the service for the public in September, offering a range of workshops for all ages and the ability for members of the public to reserve the printers in order to work on their own creations,Ž wrote Lanette Hart, libraries and history division manager in Char-lotte County.

HEALTHY LIVINGProstate problems and how they can affect youProstate problems frequently occur in men over the age of 50. Fortunately, most problems are not cancer. Even if cancer is diagnosed, the relative five-year survival rate for all men is nearly 100 percent. The most common prostate problem diagnosed in men over 50 is prostate enlargement or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BHP). This condition occurs because the prostate continues to grow as a man matures, potentially squeezing the urethra and affecting bladder control. The prostate is a gland about the size of a walnut that is located in front of the rectum just below the bladder. It wraps around the urethra, which carries urine out of the body. The prostate is part of a mans sex organs and is responsible for producing fluid that is part of semen. Regardless of age, men should see a doc-tor immediately if they notice any signs of prostate problems, such as: Q Frequent urge to urinate Q Having to get up during the night to urinate Q Presence of blood in urine or semen Q Feeling pain or a burning sensation while urinating Q Inability to urinate Q Painful ejaculation Q Recurrent pain or stiffness in the lower back, hips, pelvic area or upper leg Diagnosing prostate problems may involve several tests, the first of which is usually the digital rectal exam (DRE). During a DRE, the physician inserts a gloved finger into the rectum to feel the prostate and evaluate its size, shape and condition. A prostate-specific antigen blood test may be ordered to screen men without symptoms. Magnetic resonance imaging or computed tomography scans also can be used to identify abnormal structures. If BHP is diagnosed, the condition can be managed several ways. Mild symp-toms may not require any treatment. However, regular checkups are neces-sary to make sure the condition does not worsen. Other options include surgery or taking medications to shrink or relax the prostate so it does not block the bladder opening. Acute prostatitis can start suddenly and cause fever, chills or lower back pain. Another form of prostatitis, called chronic bacterial prostatitis, is an infec-tion that occurs repeatedly. Both may be treated with antibiotics. Chronic bacterial prostatitis is a condition that is difficult to treat and may need more than one round of treatment. Different prostate problems, including prostate cancer, may cause similar symptoms. That is why it is important to see your doctor to determine the proper treatment. Join Dr. Sean Sawh, a urologist on the medical staff at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center, on Thursday, April 27, from 6 to 7 p.m. at hospital for an educa-tional lecture on common mens health issues. Attendees will learn about surgical treatment options available at the hospi-tal for incontinence, erectile dysfunction, bladder and testicular cancer. To register for the event, call (855) 387-5864.

Every 12 seconds, one of these older Americans is admitted to the emergency department for a fall; and every day, 74 of those will die from a fall. More than half of those who fall do not tell their doctors or healthcare providers about it. These numbers have contrib-uted to making older adult falls the leading cause of injuries, both fatal and nonfatal, among Americans 65 and older. Aside from causing injuries that can affect a persons overall health and quality of life, falls are also the most costly of injuries incurred by this age group. In 2015, the Medicare costs of falls requiring medical treatment were more than $31 billion, and the average cost of a nonfatal fall was nearly $10,000. Falls arent just a normal part of aging. Older Ameri-cans and their caregivers can take steps to prevent them.Q Speak up. Older adults can talk to their doctor or healthcare provider about their risk of falling and what they can do to help prevent falls. They should tell their health-care providers right away if they have fallen, if they are afraid of falling, or if they feel unsteady when walking or standing.Q Keep moving.Q Activities that strengthen legs and help with balance, such as Tai Chi, can help prevent falls. These exercises should get more challenging over time to continue increasing strength and balance.Q Check with healthcare providers about recommending an exercise program appropriate for the person.Q Have an annual physical checkup. Q Have a vision screening once a year and update eyeglasses as needed.Q Check medications.Q Consider having a medication review conducted by a pharmacist or other health-care provider.Q Bring all medications, including prescriptions, over-the-counter medications, vitamins and supplements „ whether taken regularly or occasionally „ to a planned office visit or to the pharmacist for review.Q Discuss any side effects like feeling dizzy or sleepy.Q Healthcare providers can help older adults determine which medications might be stopped, reduced, or switched if side effects are putting them at risk for falls.Q Additionally, ask the healthcare provider if taking Vitamin D supplements might help improve nerve, muscle, and bone health.Q Check for home safety.Q Remove small throw rugs, or use double-sided tape to secure them to the floor.Q Add grab bars in the bathroom „ next to and inside the tub and next to the toilet.Q Have handrails and lights installed on all staircases.Q Make sure the home has lots of light. With more than 10,000 Americans turning 65 each day, the number of fall-related injuries and deaths are expected to surge unless preventive measures are taken. Q

BUSINESS PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF APRIL 13-19, 2017 | A17 WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM Every business goes through cycles.They get started. They expand „ sometimes rapidly. They decline. They consolidate. But if theyre not careful navigating the storms that the market and fate throw at them, they could cycle right out of existence, says Dave Hopson, managing partner at the information-technology consult-ing firm Triumphus and author of Surviving the Business Storm Cycle: How to Weather Your Busi-nesss Ups and DownsŽ ( In fact, about half of all new businesses dont make it to their fifth birthday, according to the Small Business Administration. Essentially, those startups stalled out. Maybe the reason was too little capital. Maybe it was a faulty marketing plan. Some-times the reason may be that the technology crucial to any business suc-cess simply couldnt meet the always-evolving challenges the business faced. Transitioning from startup to successful enterprise is always going to be a diffi-cult undertaking,Ž Mr. Hopson says. But thats going to be even more so if your company hits an exciting growth phase and your back office fails to keep up.Ž As they try to make sure their businesses survive, Mr. Hopson says its critical that com-pany leaders keep these key points in mind: Q Professionalize the back office and IT. That will keep your sys-tems predictable and your IT ready to expand and adapt to the next phase the business faces. And I dont care what business youre in,Ž Mr. Hopson says. Information technology is your companys backbone.Ž Q Technology alone isnt the answer, though. Successful ongoing transforma-tion of a business depends on not just technology, but people and processes as well. Each must be fully integrated with the other two. When you leave out one, Mr. Hopson says, your businesss func-tions are no longer healthy, effective, and productive „ and you may not be able to survive the transition points on the busi-ness cycle. He developed an IT survival quizŽ to help business leaders assess how well theyre doing on this score. Q Keep employees informed and engaged. Its part of a leaders role to let people know where the company is in the business cycle, and to educate, encourage and inspire them to use each phase as productively as possible, from startup, to rapid growth, to deceleration and back again. Q Dont stand still. The business storm cycleŽ will drive you to constantly reinvent yourself as a company. If you fail to recognize that the status quo wont last forever, the market will leave you behind. Q Be prepared for a tornado.Ž Periods of high growth „ which Hopson calls tornadosŽ „ are caused by a new product, a new market, a new merger or a technology breakthrough. Com-panies that understand the character-istics of all the phases a business will go through are less likely to be caught unawares by these hyper-growth phas-es,Ž he says. They know how to make one of these growth phases last as long as possible so they can get all the profits they can out of it.Ž Although it can sound like hes sounding a dire warning, Mr. Hopson says with the right planning businesses can survive those tornadosŽ and thrive. When you do, take a deep breath and relax, he says „ but not for too long. Eventually, a new tornado will come along,Ž Mr. Hopson says, and you will go through the entire cycle all over again.Ž Q „ Dave Hopson is the managing partner at Triumphus, which offers IT consulting services to companies from startup through exponential growth to IPO. He has a bachelors degree in political science from Sam Houston University and a masters in international relations from Claremont Graduate School.

A18 BUSINESS WEEK OF APRIL 13-19, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLY MONEY & INVESTINGFree-falling Valeant Pharmaceutical still can’t get itself turned around In 2015, I wrote an article about the fall of a little known drug company named Valeant Pharmaceutical International. This once up-and-coming company was the darling of Wall Street for a brief while as it gobbled up companies using its high-flying stock as currency. The stock had traded as high as $250 per share „ at the time of my article it had plummeted to $75 per share due to reports of fraudulent sales, overpriced drugs and crushing debt burden. I urged investors to use caution „ even at that depressed stock price „ as the company attempted to turn itself around. So what has happened to Valeant in the last couple of years? Are there other les-sons to be learned by examining this com-pany in further detail? The past year has not been kind to Valeant. Currently the stock trades at $9.50. After I wrote my last article on this company, the stock did jump from $75 to around $110, but since that time it has been steadily falling. And it is not as if Valeant has not tried extremely hard to turn itself around. First, it hired a well-respected and highly qualified CEO, Joseph Papa. Mr. Papa previously was the CEO of the profitable health care company Perrigo. In addition, the company pledged to sell noncore assets in order to cut its debt load and stabilize its income. And finally, Vale-ant is attempting to grow its revenues through partnerships with companies like Walgreens.Clearly, investors are not convinced that Valeant has turned the corner. The stock is being punished as a result. The most worrisome problem is the companys massive debt. While the company did sell $2.1 billion in assets in January, since then it has been strug-gling to find buyers for its noncore brands. For example, Valeant recently announced that its Australian iNova unit, which was expected to sell for $1 billion, had bids for only $680 million. If the company cannot find buyers, many fear the company will not be able to service its debt and it may collapse.At the same time, the company is negotiating with its creditors to refinance some of its debt in order to push off near term interest payments. And while it has been successful in accomplishing this recently, each refinancing adds a little to the companys interest rate, or increases fees, which makes it just a little harder to pay back the loans down the road. As far as revenue growth goes, unfortunately Valeant has been heading in the wrong direction. In its latest quarterly earnings, the companys branded sales actually fell by 17 percent and even its core Bausch & Lomb units sales fell by 1 percent. Valeant will need to quickly turn these brands around if it wants to regain investor trust. And finally, Valeants main cheerleader, Bill Ackman of Pershing Square Capital Management, announced that he was sell-ing his entire holding of Valeant stock. Mr. Ackman lost over $4 billion because of Valeant, but many thought he would hold the stock; he was quoted many times as saying that he believed the company would turn itself around. Clearly even he has given up hope. I think there are a few lessons we can learn looking at Valeants stock over the last year. First, investing in a turnaround story is a very risky play. The risk of these situations often outweighs the potential rewards. I would much rather miss the first 10 percent upside of a stocks upswing than experience the 80 percent down-swing of a failed turnaround. I would advise waiting for the first evidence that management is successful, rather than investing in speculation that it will be. Second, Valeant is a warning that getting out from under a significant debt bur-den is not an easy task for any person or company. Banks and bondholders can be your best friends when things are good, but often form a vicious nega-tive cycle when things turn bad. Difficulty in repayment leads to higher rates and fees, which makes it even harder to repay the debt, which leads to higher rates and fees and so on. Breaking from this cycle is extremely difficult. Lastly, Valeant shows that relying on Wall Street research may not always be the best guide to investing. We all know that almost all analysts were extremely bullish as the company peaked. But very few analysts recommended selling even as the companys problems became public and the price started to free fall. Even today, many top tier investment banks have Valeant rated a neutral.Ž As for me, I wouldnt touch this stock with a 10-foot pole „ even at a single-dig-it price „ until the company has proven that it can repay its debt and stabilize revenues. Q „ Eric Bretan, the co-owner of Ricks Estate & Jewelry Buyers in Punta Gorda, was a senior derivatives marketer and investment banker for more than 15 years at several global banks. eric Name: Karen Erren Title: Executive director at the Palm Beach County Food Bank Location: LantanaBY MARY THURWACHTERmthurwachter@” oridaweekly.comThe Palm Beach County Food Banks new executive director, Karen C. Erren, says she couldnt have found a better job and is such a fan of the organization. In only five years, the food bank has accomplished so much,Ž Ms. Erren said. I have worked with food banks in com-munities across the United States. I look forward to working with the board to build on the success to date and continue to increase our all-important services to those in need in our community.Ž Her job is her passion.I remember so many people who helped me throughout life,Ž she said. Working at the food bank is one of the best ways she can give back. Ms. Errens experience includes having served as the development director of the Arkansas Foodbank in Little Rock, where she tripled its annual income; and as the executive director of Ronald McDonald House Charities in Little Rock, where she oversaw double-digit revenue growth each year while strengthening its infra-structure and organizational processes. She also served as director of resource development for City Rescue Mission in Jacksonville. She was director of new business development for Russ Reid of Pasadena, Calif., the worlds largest marketing and commu-nications agency devoted exclusively to helping nonprofits grow around the globe. Now the Palm Beach County Food Bank has her full attention. From a centralized location in Lantana, the food bank provides more than 5 million pounds of food annually that is distributed to at least 100,000 individuals from Tequesta to Boca Raton and west to Belle Glade and Pahokee. The agency also provides backpacks of healthy food to children for the week-ends. Its Marjorie S. Fisher Nutrition Driven program provides nutrition edu-cation, food safety, food preparation and consumer shopping tips and fresh food products to at-risk families. In addition, the food bank assists at least 2,100 eligible families per year lift themselves out of poverty by accessing Supplemental Nutri-tion Assistance Program (formerly known as food stamps) benefits. Ms. Erren and her husband, Eduardo Marin, have four children and live in Palm Beach. For more information about the Food Bank, visit Karen ErrenAge: 49 Where I grew up: Little Rock Where I live now: Palm Beach Education: Bachelors degree in communications from Stephens College in Columbia, Mo. What brought me to Florida: This job and the incredible location. My job today: Executive director at the Palm Beach County Food Bank My first job and what it taught me: I worked at the Heights Variety Store for Mr. Bud Hewitt when I was just 14. They had to post-date my work permit because state law didnt allow you to work until age 14 and my birthday fell on Thanksgiv-ing that year. Mr. Hewitt was so highly regarded in our community because of his attention to and care for his customers. He taught me to know the customer and focus on taking care of them. A career highlight: It has long been a career goal of mine to have the oppor-tunity to lead a food bank. My heart is in what I call basic needsŽ nonprofit work, the local work of residents caring for their neighbors and helping ensure all residents have access to food and shelter. The Palm Beach County community came together five years ago and formed the Palm Beach County Food Bank. The growth of the past five years has been significant and impres-sive. And the future is just as important. There is more work to be done to ensure everyone in Palm Beach County has nutri-tious food and the knowledge to prepare it to take care of their family. And did you know? Seniors continue to be one of the fastest growing groups needing our help. To be able to lead this organization, along-side our board, is truly a dream come true. What I do when Im not working: Reading, cooking and enjoying the beauty here in Palm Beach County. Best advice for someone looking to make it in my field: I have a business mantra, which is, Commitment to excel-lence and attention to detail.Ž I also advo-cate appropriate persistence! About mentors: I have been lucky to have many individuals who have helped me in my career. There are two of par-ticular note. First, food bank executive director Phyllis Haynes, who I worked with for five years. Phyllis taught me the importance that every individual plays in an organization. And the second is my dad. He was a structural engineer and he taught me about a strong work ethic and how to lead a team.

Now, ones like the Ram 1500 Sport Crew Cab 4x4 feature a button on the key fob to lower the suspension so that its easy to hop inside. Is this progress? Or are our tough pickups just going after people who need coddling? The answer might be both.Trucks like this one are quite striking. The extra ride height of the 4x4 chassis gives it a beefy first impression. Plus, the Sport model line eliminates brightwork from places like the grille, bumpers and door handles for a sleeker and more aggressive appearance. This one goes a step further with the optional Night Package that blacks out the grille and large 20-inch wheels. It also gets the bold R-A-M letters on the tailgate. It not only reminds everyone that Ram has separated from Dodge as its own brand, but also its a feature only shared with the up-market Limited and off-road Rebel trim levels. Creating a truck that looks like it could eat the streets also can eat a hole in wallets. A Ram 1500 Sport Crew Cab 4x4 starts around $41,890. Add in some extra aggressiveness with the Night Package ($395) and a Sport Performance Hood ($775) that borrows its design from the Challenger sports cars. Plus, theres genuine performance features like the Hemi V8 ($1,950), and air-ride suspension ($1,715) that bows to wel-come passengers. And those utilizing their pickup for real work might enjoy the factory ton-neau cover ($595) and the Ram Box ($1,295) that turns both bed sides into lockable tool boxes (or coolers with a drain if its time to tailgate.) Now its a vehicle thats approaching $50K, even before adding in conveniences like leather seats or parking sensors. But theres a different side to this, too. When a pickup is this loaded, it can pretty much do everything. The aggressive appearance is great for a night on the town, and the 4x4 chassis ensures it can go to the jobsite the next day with ease (and those flashy black wheels show less dirt than mirror alloys.) It even fits in the companys parking garage on the weekday, and can be handy for the weekends. Inside, the Crew Cab is exceptionally roomy. Sure, (Dodge) Rams marketing loves to show how three hard hat adults can comfortably ride out of the oil fields in the back seat. But the real benefit of this space means the after-school pickup is a breeze. So where the old idea of a truck was the households second vehi-cle, the new generation has the ability to move up in the family pecking order. If this pickup is going to haul more children than cinderblocks, there will be many who will likely opt for the 5.7-liter V8. It might seem counterintuitive that carrying less weight would require the extra 90 more horsepower. But the real reason why it will be popular is the Hemi badging on the side and extra rumble from the dual exhaust. After all, there needs to be maximum machismo redemption if a pickup is going to be used as a minivan. On a more practical side, Rams available air-ride suspension is the true win-ner for a family style truck. Besides add-ing versatility, this feature is directly taken from the premium car/crossover playbook for adding comfort to the long journeys.But what about those of us who remember the days when a velour seat and manual sliding rear window were what distinguished an upper-class pickup? The bare-bones work truck is available. Ram, Ford and Chevrolet all have single cab V6 pickups that can be purchased for around $25K if buyers are willing to wait for the best factory incentives. Adjusted for inflation, thats about the same price a base pickup was three decades ago.So the old-school style truck is still out there, but they arent as plentiful as before. Taking the front row at your local dealer now is the 4x4 that can be cross-shopped with a BMW X5.

Local violinist to play top fiddle at Harriet concert BY JANIS FONTAINEpbnews@” oridaweekly.comViolinist Gareth Johnson has been praised for his technical expertise, his sensitive bow work, his confident play-ing style and his clever phrasing since he burst onto the scene as a child prod-igy nearly two decades ago. His skills have not diminished. The virtuoso, known for playing an 1840 J.B. Vuillaume violin, performs April 18 at the Harriet Himmel Theater at CityPlace, accompanied by pianist Robin Arrigo. The concert is part of the Kretzer Piano Music Foundations Music for the Mind Concert Series, which raises money for music les-sons and scholarships for local kids. This concert will benefit Keyboards for Kids,Ž which provides group piano classes for more than 100 inner-city school children at the Center for Cre-ative Education in West Palm Beach. Mr. Johnson began playing violin at age 10, moved to Wellington from St. Louis when he was 16, was privately taught by such instructors as Itzhak Perlman and earned a masters degree from the Lynn Conservatory of Music in Boca Raton. He has traveled and toured extensively as a soloist, master teacher and educator, and excelled as an artist-in-residence at Albany State University in Georgia before returning to South Florida to open The Lailan Music School and focus on teaching and arrangement. Dr. Arrigo, who holds a doctorate of musical arts in accompanying and chamber music from the University of Miami, will also perform several solo compositions and, as a special treat, Dr. Arrigos daughter, Amanda, will per-form on cello. Their program, From Baroque to Bruno Mars,Ž will feature audi-ence favorites, including SpringŽ from Vivaldis Four Seasons,Ž Men-delssohns Piano Trio No. 1 in D minor,Ž Ravels Tzigane,Ž Rimsky-Korsakovs Flight of the Bumblebee,Ž the theme from Game of Thrones,Ž Happy,Ž by Pharrell Williams, and Treasure,Ž by Bruno Mars.

The veteran area performers feature a fourth-generation Florida native in Jill, a versatile singer capable of every-thing from jazz standards and Motown to pop and show tunes, and an Ohio native in Rich, who moved to South Florida more than three decades ago to play nearly every musical style on an array of instruments: piano, keyboards, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, accor-dion, bass and drums. Even if you havent seen and heard the Lantana-based Switzers at recur-ring house gigs like The Colony Hotel in Palm Beach or The Pelican Caf in Lake Park, you may have heard them on the radio, performing in a different vein. For the past three years, the two also have co-hosted the 6-10 a.m. vari-ety radio show The Morning LoungeŽ at the North Palm Beach-based station Legends 100.3 FM. The station was founded by veteran IMAGINE BEING ALICE IN WONDERLAND and drinking the charmed potion to become small, allowing you access to a magical world of curiosities.

B4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 13-19, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLYFabricating an exhibitionDelray’s Cornell Museum stitches together an innovative show of fiber art BY CHRISTINA WOODFlorida Weekly correspondentOn a recent weekday afternoon, four young millennials wandered through the galleries of the Cornell Art Museum at Old School Square in Delray Beach. One drifted off from his friends and was almost knocked down by The Herd,Ž an engaging piece by Tasha Lewis featured in the current exhibition, Fabricated.Ž Whoa,Ž he blurted out, eyes growing wide as he unexpectedly encountered the blue deer-like creatures born from Ms. Lewiss imagination. You could almost see the thought forming in his head, my friends have got to see this, before he turned, smiling, and hurried off. Peoples reactions have been very interesting,Ž says Marusca Gatto, direc-tor of operations at the Cornell, smiling herself. The Herd,Ž which can be seen bounding through one of the galleries on the second floor of the museum, is undoubt-edly among the highlights of the show celebrating contemporary fiber art, which is on display through April 23. According to the New Jersey artist, every member of The HerdŽ is a unique fusion of gazelle, impala, mule deer, goat or springbok. Each individual sculpture is stuffed with cardboard, newspaper and masking tape, yet these beasts are abun-dantly full of life. Their hides are a hand-sewn patchwork of photographs printed on fabric using the cyanotype process responsible for the blue hue. Machine and hand embroidery complete the look. I am drawn to these fiber materials because they are reflections of the natural world,Ž Ms. Lewis explained in a statement. A stitch becomes hair, veins, wrinkles, bone fissures, muscle fibers and a patch of embroidery can become a freckle, an iris, or lips. The stitches that permeate all my work are an essen-tial meditative act that creates cohesion, marks time, traces my movement around the piece and draws the viewers eyes across it.Ž While Ms. Lewis and Amanda McCavour of Toronto, whose contribution to FabricatedŽ is a stunning two-story cas-cade of color, think big, Delray Beach-based artist Amy Gross has adopted an almost microscopic approach in her work. I went on a studio visit to her house and it just blew me away,Ž says Melanie Johanson, who curated Fabricated.Ž Her work is so intricate and incredible, you could look at it for hours and still see different things in it.Ž Through hand-embroidered and beaded fiber sculptures, Ms. Gross attempts to merge the natural world with her own inner life. Their symbiosis suggests not only what can be seen, but also what can-not: the early altera-tions of time, the first suggestions of disin-tegration,Ž she explained in a statement. Ive always been attracted and frightened by things that are on the edge of spoiling, or straining to support an excess of growth.Ž Her meticulously crafted pieces seem to cluster, tangle, cling and multiply as they spread across the walls of the muse-um. I do not collaborate with the nature that fascinates me, the myriad visible and invisible interactions that lie at the heart of every insect, bacteria, tree and spore. I collaborate with manufacturing,Ž she says. I use no found objects, nothing that was ever alive.Ž Every biotope and bee to emerge from her studio is constructed using craft store yarns and beads as well as wire and paper and fabric transfers made from altered scans and manipulated photographs, ensuring that her delicate organisms will not die. While the traditional techniques employed by many of the artists featured in FabricatedŽ are familiar to crafters, the unfamiliar ways in which they are applied can be a revelation. People with the skills needed to crochet an afghan, knit a sweater or piece together a quilt are viewing FabricatedŽ and seeing their craft given new life in unexpected ways. I think the artwork in the museum right now shows a connection between contemporary art and contemporary craft,Ž Ms. Johanson says. Weve had great feedback,Ž Ms. Gatto reports. Attendance is up, too. The ladies speak of family members who sew and quilt and the men seem fascinated with the patience required for this work. It has folks lingering, studying the pieces and trying to image how the work is created.Ž Youll be tempted to pet the soulful dogs created by Gina Phillips, a mixed media, narrative artist who grew up in Kentucky and has lived in New Orleans since 1995. By appliquing fabric and thread on top of a simple underpaint-ing in acrylic paint on canvas or muslin, she has found a niche between twoand three-dimensional works, where the characters and critters captured in her art can dwell. Stephen Wilson, who lives in Charlotte, N.C., blends quilted backgrounds with three-dimensional embroidery. His use of luxurious fabrics „ ranging from silky Herms scarves to plush velvets „ adds emphasis to the intellectual and visual impact of his deceptively lush work. In Mr. Wilsons hands, a grenade becomes the body of a butte rfly that unapologetically grabs the attention of virtually every passerby. A gas mask quilted in gold rests on a velvet bed. A spray of flowers erupts from a pistol. Australian Meredith Woolnoughs elegant embroidered traceries capture the beauty and fragility of nature in knotted embroidery threads. Natalie Baxter of Brooklyn uses the sewing and quilting tech-niques she learned from her grandmother to create soft sculptures that playfully push controversial political issues.And then theres Phyllis the Giant Cactus,Ž created by Jamie Lee Griffiths of Boynton Beach. She also is responsible for the whimsical yarn bombing that adds color and personality to several of the palm trees standing watch at the entrance to the Cornell Museum of Art. The Immortal Cactus,Ž as Ms. Griffiths refers to the work, consists of more than 1,400 yards of yarn, almost 100 ounces of polyester fiberfill, one terracotta pot and more than 27,000 handmade stitches. The whimsy woven into the piece cannot be quantified. But it can be honored, as Ms. Johanson has done by giving PhyllisŽ a spot in the show that should charm even the most prickly museum visitors.
