The South Florida Science Center and Aquarium is combining multiculturalism and conservation with its Festival del Mar. The third annual festival, set for Saturday, June 17, at the science center, aiming to engage the local Latin American com-munity and promoting ocean conservation and education is presented in partnership with the Caritas Smile charity. Among other activities, the daylong hap-pening features cultural performances, arts and crafts, family Zumba, bilingual planetarium shows and story time. The festivals presence also encourages Latin Americans to pursue a career in a science field. Statistics show Latinos are significantly less likely to earn a degree in science, technology, engi-neering and math, or STEM fields,Ž said Lew Crampton, the science centers president and CEO.

George S. Patton Jr. would have detested Donald J. Trump given the very different temperaments, talents and moral compasses of these men, in my view. But when I said it in a column (Florida Weekly, May 31, George Pattons politicsŽ), the notion was greeted with howls of rage. From Susan:I just saw your article, in which you called President Trump a whore. I suggest you consult a grief counselor ƒ youre still grieving and mourning the loss of your candidate Crooked Hillary. Right now, you are in the name-calling, insult-hurling stage of mourning.Ž From Jamie Alvarez, MD:I do not know how this garbage piece you wrote passed the sniff test. ...Had any-one in The News-Press or whatever outlet written a piece like this, he or she would have been lambasted and even called a rac-ist. You are just shrill, un-funny and very rude ƒ. you only rudely (or serpiginously) referred to Mr. Trump as bombastic, and then a whore, and then a draft dodger (ala Clinton), and finally a liar ƒ You ought to be ashamed of yourself.Ž From Tommy Lee Cook:Patton would have loved Trump ... He would be free to annihilate like Mad Dog has. Politifact has been shown to be a very biased site. The Russian thing is a Podesta baby. No evidence, zip.Ž From Ed Bennett:Geez Roger, why didnt you compare Obama and even better Bill or Hillary Clin-ton with Pattons viewpoint? Maybe an honest assessment of a Democrat might have you calling one of them a whore also?Ž From Foster Thorpe: I read your opinion this morning and it shows bigotry on your part. The problem today is opinions like yours dont serve any common good. I was taught before you cast negative information find some good about someone. Your article serves no purpose except to keep the flames of hatred ongoing.Ž From Padgett:I believe ƒ a better more telling question would be: Dad, who do you think Gen. George Patton would have voted for, Clin-ton or Trump? Emmmmmmmmh! That might have told a truer story of who Gen. Patton really was.Ž From Mike Norvilas:I did NOT enjoy your column. Wake up/grow up.Ž From S.G. Wilson:This Russian thing with Trump and Russia is a made-up story, Trump said ƒ You write, All lies. Do you know of evidence there was collusion between Trump and the Russian government? Can you share it with your readers?Ž From JD:Dear Roger, very sad today ƒ thought you were a fair, unbiased guy ƒ seems you have forgotten the real whoppers of all time: I never had sex with that intern which re-defined oral genital pleasuring as a non-sex act. Thanks Bill!Ž From Roger (a response):I thank any reader for being galvanized to write. These letters are passionate, some-times funny, often angry and in my view quite reasonable, at times. Let me share a few thoughts about them. First: If Im going to compare Mr. Trump to Mr. Patton, for example, why not also compare him to Mr. Obama, either of the Clintons or other leaders of the past? Thats a good question. The answer is, their time is gone. Mr. Trump, however, is our political point man in the here and now. Our fate depends in part on his leadership. Every question, every comparison, every skepti-cal eye directed at him and at the lay of the land he leads us through now is justified and necessary. Am I merely being negative? No, because criticizing is a form of seeing and analyzing, not merely denigrating. A jet mechanic is a critic and a skeptic. He looks at the system he serves, a complex engine, with the most critical eye. If he doesnt, trouble will follow. Second: PolitiFact, the fact-checking creation of the Tampa Bay Times that researches statements of politicians from any party, is one of the most unbiased sources of information on the planet, according to the non-partisan watchdog, Calling PolitiFact the gold standardŽ for lack of bias, it lists roughly 100 American and international print and electronic publi-cations or on-air productions that meet the following criteria: These sources have minimal bias and use very few loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereo-types). The reporting is factual and usu-ally sourced. These are the most credible media sources.Ž Third: Russia, led by Mr. Putin, is the villain in an unprecedented 2016 assault on our voting process that continues to leave the United States stunned and flatfooted. Mr. Trump has failed to respond, let alone to challenge Mr. Putin or other Russian leaders. He and his family have long-stand-ing, identifiable financial relationships with Russian oligarchs and supporters of Mr. Putin. Mr. Trump has sought to hide those connections, just as he has hidden his tax history „ and all of that is demonstrable. This Russian thing with Trump and Russia,Ž as the president put it, is decidedly not made up. But the president claims it is. Mr. Wilsons inference is correct, however: We dont know if Mr. Trump colludedŽ in advance in the Russian effort to alter the election, or in some other way. I appreciate being reminded of that.Finally, I am also grateful for letters of praise. From Allen Burgess: Just want to tell you that I enjoyed the article and it was very informative. I look forward to future articles. Again, thank you.Ž From Cheryl Nelson:I truly appreciated your article on Pattons Politics in Florida Weekly. As the wife of a veteran of 20 years in the Marines and two tours of Vietnam, I am appalled by Trump and his version of Greatness. Your article was concise and hit the nail on the head. Thank you for your insight.Ž Q Can Wonder Woman just be Wonder Woman?In the new Wonder WomanŽ movie, the heroine is mystified by the ways of humankind „ and she doesnt even read the internet. The fevered commentary about the new hit film raises the question, Cant an Ama-zonian superhero wield her Lasso of Truth and bullet-deflecting bracelets while wear-ing an up-armored version of a figure-skat-ing outfit without inciting more battles in the culture war?Ž This being contemporary America, the answer is, Of course not.Ž The critics have swooned, and some of them have literally cried over the movie. This is a bit much. The advancement of women in this country, or even just in Hol-lywood, didnt depend on the production of a better female superhero vehicle. Nor is it unusual anymore to see women beat up villains on screen. This hasnt stopped people from losing their minds „ a new American core competency „ over Won-der Woman.Ž Why doesnt she have armpit hair? Summarizing this controversy that erupted when the trailer was released, The New York Times wrote that the lack of body hair on the female warrior makes us won-der if feminism was swept aside in favor of achieving the ideal female aesthetic.Ž (The Wonder Woman character has existed for about 75 years „ and has never once sported armpit hair.) Did you know that lead actress Gal Gadot is Israeli and served in the Israel Defense Forces? Lebanon certainly noticed. It banned the film. Actress Gina Rodriguez tweeted her disapproval, then deleted her tweet under internet pressure. Then there are the clashing interpretations of the movie. Its a masterpiece of subversive feminism,Ž according to The Guardian. No, its not, according to a writer in Slate, who complains of its prevailing occupation with the titular heroines sex appeal.Ž Wonder Woman, aka Diana Prince, is the spawn of the gods, and such creatures tend to have better-than-average looks, especially when they are depicted in major motion pictures. As for her outfit, most superheroes are distinguished by their inappropriate, physique-bearing costumes, and why would a self-confident Amazonian be different? The movie is certainly a feminist allegory. Diana is doing just fine on the all-female island of Themyscira when a dude shows up, a wayward American pilot who crash-lands. Then everything goes wrong. She ends up leaving with him into the human world, where she confronts and spoofs mystifying practices (woman squeezing into corsets, councils of war excluding women, etc.) and where World War I rages. This is catnip for feminists, but surely what accounts for the films runaway suc-cess is its traditional elements. A thread throughout is the lighthearted cross-cultur-al romance between the fearsomely pow-erful, if nonetheless feminine, Diana (she delights at babies, ice cream and snow-flakes) and her human love interest. Diana is an admirably idealistic instrument of outraged innocence. Her Ama-zonian ethic means she rejects dishon-esty and cynical maneuvering. She doesnt exactly fight against the Germans so much against warfare in general. But she is righ-teous and brave. By the end, Diana comes to realize that humankind is worth saving, despite our flaws. Perhaps the least of them, although an annoying one, is our inability to simply enjoy a deft, entertaining summer block-buster.

A May NPR report based on Las Cruces experience quoted favorable reviews by students, backed by a doctor and a nurse practitioner who pointed to research showing that adequate sleep canŽ boost memory and attention and thus canŽ improve school performance (and therefore must be a great use of federal education dollars). Unclear on the concept Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam argues that his hands are tiedŽ by federal food lawsŽ and that fresh, all-naturalŽ milk with the cream skimmed off the top cannot be sold in Florida as milkŽ (or skim milkŽ) but must be labeled imitation milkŽ „unless the all-naturalŽ milk adds (artificial) vitamin A to the product. A family farm in the panhandle (Ocheesee Creamery) decided to challenge the law, and Putnam, who recently announced his candidacy for governor, said he would try to resolve the issue soon. Inexplicable (1) It recently became necessary for Candace Frazee and Steve Lubanski to acquire a bigger home in the Los Ange-les area because their 33,000 bunnyŽ-related items (stuffed bunnies, antique bunnies, bunny paintings, bunny din-nerware, etc.) needed more space. (2) The worlds only museum devoted to the house catŽ allows self-guided tours in Sylva, N.C., where curator Harold Sims displays 10,000 artifacts including a gen-uine petrified cat (with whiskers) pulled from a 16th-century English chimney. (3) Brantford, Ontario, real estate agent Kyle Jansink, speaking for unidentified sellers, said he accepted the challenge of selling the meticulously maintained home as isŽ „ still packed with the sellers clown-related items (dolls, miniatures, porce-lain statues, paintings). Compelling explanations Q Theyre therapists,Ž not strippers,Ž argued New York Citys Pent-house Executive Club, creatively char-acterizing its dancers to avoid $3 mil-lion in back taxes, but the states appeals board ruled against it in April. Pent-house had insisted that its performers were more akin to counselors for lonely men, and that the clubs door chargeŽ was an untaxable fee for therapeutic health services. Q James Pelletier, 46, was arrested in Hollis, Maine, in May after he fired a BB gun point-blank at his two sons, ages 9 and 11 „ but only, he said, as a rite of passageŽ into maturity (perhaps think-ing the experience would help them become as mature as their father). He said if the kids knew how it felt to get shot, perhaps they would not be so quick to fire their own guns. The continuing crisis You mean Jethro and Abby, too? In contrast to the exciting work of the TV series (near the top of broadcast rat-ings for the last decade), real agents in the Naval Criminal Investigative Service have labored over computer screens eight to 10 hours a day for two months now employing their facial-recognition soft-ware „ just to scour websites to identify victims of nude-photo postings of mili-tary personnel that came to light earlier this year. (Y)ou get pretty burned out,Ž said the NCIS director. A simple word search of uniformed military nudeŽ got nearly 80 million hits, according to a May Associated Press dispatch from the Quan-tico Marine base, where the 20 investiga-tors labor side-by-side. Military allies in odd places (1) In April, three days after ISIS fighters reportedly executed 25 villag-ers about 50 miles south of Kirkuk, Iraq, the three murderers were themselves killed (and eight more wounded) when a pack of wild boars overran their posi-tion and gnawed them into martyrdom. (2) In April, a Russian naval reconnaissance ship sank in the Black Sea off of Turkey (likely op: Syria-related) when it collided with a livestock barge flying the flag of Togo. All aboard the Russian ship were rescued; the much-heavier Togolese vessel suffered barely a scratch. Oops Q In May, Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley apparently mindlessly signed the proclamation designating a special day for the late Tre Hummons (submit-ted by his grieving father, to honor the sons sacrificeŽ). Tre Hummons was killed in 2015 by a police officer „ but only after Tre had just shot and killed another Cincinnati police officer. Q Winneshiek County (Iowa) Engineer Lee Bjerke said he had no idea how the driver of the loaded 18-wheeler had missed the Load Limit 3 TonsŽ sign at the entrance of the small, rickety bridge near Cresco in May, but in seconds, the span was wiped out, and the tractor-trailer had become part of the Turkey River. The loaded grain truck weighed more than 30 tons. Q

Town and Country Animal Hospital86+:<3DOP%HDFK*DUGHQV)/‡ ‡ZZZWDFDKFRP PET TALESCanine flu tips Common-sense precautions can help keep dogs safeAn eight-state outbreak of canine influenza is causing dog-show exhibitors to keep their dogs home and the Ameri-can Kennel Club to advise judges that exhibitors should display the dogs teeth themselves. Pet dogs are at risk if they frequent dog parks or other areas where dogs come in contact with each other. The H3N2 strain has been documented in 30 states, including Florida, which reported its first cases earlier this month, and H3N8 has been found in 42 states, plus Washington, D.C. The H3N2 strain primarily affects dogs, but last March, the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine and the Wisconsin Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory documented that the strain had infected a group of cats in the Mid-west and could spread from cat to cat. The disease is not transmissible to humans. While most dogs who encounter the highly contagious virus develop a mild or subclinical case and recover in two to four weeks without serious problems, that doesnt mean the disease is harmless. A small percentage of dogs can develop a severe form that may lead to pneumonia caused by a secondary bacterial infec-tion. They may need antibiotics, fluids or even hospitalization. The fatality rate is less than 10 percent. Dogs in frequent contact with other dogs „ at parks, boarding or daycare facilities, animal shelters, pet stores, grooming salons, dog shows or other events „ are at highest risk. Up to 80 percent of dogs exposed to the virus will contract it. The airborne virus is transmitted by contact with infected dogs or contami-nated items, such as pet dishes, leashes, crates or kennels. The virus can survive up to 24 hours on soft surfaces, such as bedding, and up to 48 hours on hard sur-faces, such as flooring. Persons handling an infected dog and then an uninfected dog without first disinfecting their hands can also spread the disease. Dogs who show clinical signs can be infective for 28 days from the time they are exposed to the virus. Infected dogs without clinical signs „ a dry, hacking cough; appetite loss; lethargy; runny nose or eyes; and fever „ can spread canine flu as well. Once dogs are exposed to the virus, they show signs within 24 to 48 hours. If you suspect your dog has canine flu, call your veterinarian for advice. To avoid spreading canine flu, your veterinarian may request that you not bring your dog to the clinic or that you follow specific safety precautions before doing so. A double-dose vaccine is available to protect dogs. The second dose is admin-istered two weeks after the first. The vaccine protects against the H3N2 and H3N8 strains of the canine flu virus. Immunity typically kicks in within one to two weeks of the booster vaccine. To reduce the risk of a dog contracting canine flu or to prevent spreading the disease, experts recommend the fol-lowing tips: Q Keep sick dogs separate from healthy dogs for up to 30 days after signs diminish. Q Wash hands frequently, especially if handling one dog after another. At dog shows, judges should use hand sani-tizer after examining each dog. Exhibi-tors should consider grooming dogs at their cars instead of at grooming areas in proximity to other dogs. Q Use easily sanitized stainless steel or ceramic dog bowls. Q Clean bowls, tables, crates and other items with a solution of one part bleach to 30 parts water and let air-dry for at least 10 minutes before use. Bleach breaks down quickly, so make a new solution daily. Use paper towels instead of cloth to wipe down hard surfaces.

There is a perception to owning a family car. Its an idea that power and sportiness were given up in the name of space and utility. But then there are also these two. For about $40,000 you can purchase well-equipped versions of the Infiniti QX50 or Dodge Charger Daytona „ two very different vehicles that fight the humdrum lifestyle. The Dodge does a fine job of looking sporty. There are less expensive examples of the Charger than the Day-tona, but the dark 20-inch alloy wheels, blacked-out grille, LED accent lights, rear spoiler, and full body kit with flared wheel arches gives this one a much more sinister presence. One of the boldest standouts is the hood scoop, which doesnt actually feed the air intake, but it does the job of mak-ing this look gutsy. And while we love how it shamelessly reminds everyone there is a HEMIŽ engine underneath, the decal kit could use an upgrade in quality. In total, its a very muscle car-like package that inspires jealousy from the other parents in the school pick-up line. After all, it looks like someone didnt have to give up their sports car when the kids came into the picture. At the other end of the spectrum is the Infiniti QX50. The company says its a crossover, but the low ground clear-ance and sleek design make it more of a premium sports wagon. Thats a fine designation to have, because it fits right in with the sensible shoes crowd. Most people dont realize that beneath the levelheaded surface is the standard 325 horsepower 3.7-liter V6 that was developed under Nissans Z car program. The 24-valve power plant with variable valve timing retains that sports car feeling by eagerly accelerat-ing in all situations. Thus, this wagon is always first out of the parking lot after PTA meetings. The QX50s chassis is also set up quite nicely. Infiniti seems to have taken a les-son from the old Mercedes playbook where a machine can be both refined and sporty. This wagon knows how to behave like a luxury machine around town with light steering and dampened ride. But when accelerating through a corner, the car remains stable and confident. Thats because while Infiniti insists its a crossover, the QX50 benefits from a relatively low center of gravity and standard rear wheel drive „ two things missing from most crossovers. The Charger Daytona is no slouch either, thanks to a 5.7-liter hemi V8. It makes 370 horse-power, and lets the world know it the moment the big motor fires up with a muscle car growl. Dodge sells a Charger R/T Scat Pack with 31 percent more horsepower for the same money, but its a bit more than an incognito family machine needs. Our Daytona test car might snarl like a wild animal, but its road manners are quite tame. The ride isnt too harsh, and with very sticky Goodyear performance tires part of the standard package, it takes a conscious effort to misbehave on the streets. The R/T Scat Pack is more fun, but its tire-burning torque and harsher performance suspension might require Dramamine in the kids lunchboxes. What makes the Charger Daytona and the QX50 such great family machines are the interiors. They both have large back seat space that can fit two child seats, and as the little ones grow, theyll fit three people across without too much complaining. The Dodge is charismat-ic with its performance attitude even stitched into the seating. The Infiniti is a true luxury machine with soft touch leather seating, and there are also great family-oriented options like an AroundView 360 camera system. And it can all be had without going over the $40K budget. Cargo is another big concern for families. The wagon profile means the QX50 can swallow everything from a sci-ence fair project to the luggage for a ski week-end. But the Charger is not too far behind. As a full-size sedan, its massive trunk is only about three cubic-feet shy of the Infiniti. So, one car wants to hide its family sensibilities in a muscle machine pack-age, and the other wants to conceal its sports car prowess within a practical wrapper. The Dodge Charger Daytona and Infiniti QX50 are two very different vehicles, but they share one common goal: making the domestic lifestyle less domesticated.

nights of pot ential lost lodging in hotels and motels, and the loss of a $2.3 billion boost to the states gross product. Instead, they went to California, Louisiana or Georgia, says John Lux, executive director of Film Florida, a nonprofit trade organization. There, money paid out in tax incentives brings in significantly more in spending, officials say. Anytime a (Hollywood or New York) studio or producer called a local Florida film producer and said, Hey, wed like to bring this project to your area and we know our needs, budgets and time frame, wed have to get to the financial conversa-tion. We dont offer incentives anymore. But they could go to Georgia or New Or-leans and get incentives.Ž So they did. The makers of Guardians of the Galaxy 2,Ž for example, which grossed $818 million at the box office since its opening last month, looked at Florida but went to Georgia. Like 35 other states in the nation, the Peach State, in effect, pays filmmakers who choose to shoot there. The monetary incentives are so attractive that Georgia now surpasses California and New York in total number of productions, offering tax credits as high as 30 percent of cost for movies made in the state. Florida, meanwhile „ once number three with California and New York in at-tracting movies and TV „ has almost given up on its film industry, according to critics of Gov. Rick Scott and Republican House Speaker Rich-ard Corcoran, who have stiff-armed incentive spending, calling it corporate welfare.Ž Their austerity has saved taxpayers from forking over incentive money to filmmak-ers like Georgia does, critics acknowledge. But theyve surrendered hundreds of mil-lions in economic boosts to Florida busi-nesses in the process, a largesse ultimately worth far more coming in than the incen-tives going out.Florida Weekly takes a look at the numbers and the results of a Sunshine State surrender, as some would describe it „ the surrender of TV and filmmaker re-cruitment that could help Florida workers and Florida businesses.How it worksIf filmmakers spend $1 million in Georgia, the state promises $300,000 in tax credits. On top of that, Georgia also of-fers some sales-tax exemptions: Makers of films, television productions, music vid-eos or commercial advertising, for exam-ple, dont have to pay any tax on tangible items they buy for production, or property they lease or buy. So is this just giving away taxpayer money? Put another way: Are Georgia officials so fond of Baby Groot (a little character in GuardiansŽ who uses only one word, groot,Ž to communicate with everybody) theyll pay anything? Are they trying to get their friends recruited as set extras so they can meet big stars? The answer is No.Ž Instead, its good business and a great economic move to provide incentives, insists Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal. Georgias film industry provides a significant impact on our states economy, employing thousands of Georgians while developing infrastructure and boosting small businesses,Ž he said in a recent re-lease. The film industry has created a home in Georgia, and I am committed to retaining this relationship by constructing a strong, film-ready workforce that will continue to help the industry thrive.Ž The consequences of such thinking are evident on the bottom line: The film industry generated an economic impact of more than $7 billion during fiscal year 2016, including $2.02 billion in direct spending, Georgia officials say „ the re-sult of 245 feature-film and television pro-ductions made in the state.

Georgia companies for catering, makeup, construction supplies, set decorations, car rentals and more, says Emily Murray, a spokeswoman at the Georgia Department of Economic Development. The company also spent more than $75 million in actual production costs in Georgia. Florida, on the other hand, has offered no tax incentives since 2014 (the state still gives a sales tax break to companies that produce film or television here), and has budgeted none for the coming year, says Mr. Lux. Thats a sharp departure from the past, when the state used tax incentives to attract such films as Dolphin TaleŽ and Iron Man 3.Ž Between 2004 and 2016, Florida had various programs to entice film, television and digital media companies and projects to Florida,Ž says Kelly Paige, outgoing president of Film Florida, and owner of Level Talent Group, a Tampa-based book-ing agency. Her company has booked ac-tors into prominent roles such as Tigris in The Hunger GamesŽ franchise, a Seal Team SIXŽ member for the A&E produc-tion, and roles on BloodlineŽ and the cur-rent Netflix hit, 13 Reasons Why.Ž Since 2004, for every $1 the state of Florida invested in an incentive program for the film, television and digital media industry, more than $5 was spent in the state by those projects,Ž she says. If some-one asked you for $1 but gave you back $5 would you take that deal?Ž The answer, of course, is Yes.Ž Thats why most bigger film companies wont even consider rolling film in a state that offers no incentives, according to those in the business. For about three years since Floridas incentive money ran out, pickings here have been meager, especially because Georgia or Louisiana locations can be made to look like Florida. Currently, like it or not, tax incentives are part of the equation for productions to make choices about where to film,Ž says Maggie McCarty, a member of the Para-dise Coast Film Commission in Naples. Not offering them takes Florida out of the competition. The economic benefits are documented and it is also the inclusion of Florida-based prod-ucts in an overreach-ing marketing and branding plan that money cant buy.Ž Florida once lit up its local sets thanks to funding. Beginning in 2010, the Florida Entertainment Indus-try Financial Incentive Program offered $296 million in tax credits over a six-year period (although the money ran out in 2014) attracting both box office biggies and the trickle-down industry to the states sunny shores. During that time Florida hosted such productions as Burn No-tice,Ž The Glades,Ž Bloodlines,Ž Grace-land,Ž Ballers,Ž Magic Mike,Ž Rock of Ages,Ž Iron Man 3Ž and Dolphin Tale,Ž to name just a few. The incentive brought millions to Florida in jobs averaging $74,000 a year, ac-cording to the states Office of Film and Entertainment, citing figures in an annual report „ significantly more than the state salary average of $46,000. Between 2010 and 2016, the Department of Economic Opportunity certified 303 productions for tax credits, estimating they spent $1.28 billion in Florida. More than $744 million in wages were associat-ed with those productions, creating about 117, 400 Florida jobs, the report said. But there are additional intangibles that also pay off for the state, proponents of in-centives say: the way the nation and over-seas Florida-philes view us, for example „ as not just hot, but also cool. Television has long pictured a lifestyle that moves many to visit the Sunshine State. Miami Vice,Ž which ran for five seasons from 1984 to 1989, epitomized the hot-but-super-cool allure of Florida in general, and Miami in particular. After the show took to the small screen, the citys stature was permanently altered in the eyes of many Americans and inter-national visitors. Miami Vice is why South Beach is South Beach,Ž ex-plains casting direc-tor Lori Wyman, who has worked to cast ac-tors in South Florida productions for 30 years. Once upon a time, she recalls, Ocean Drive was filled with rocking chair after rocking chair of elderly folks watching a deserted beach.Ž But when Miami ViceŽ presented hard-bodied men, sexy women and fast, expensive cars and boats against the backdrop of blue water and easy living, things changed. South Beach went from Gods waiting room to Gods playground. Oh, and that was before anyone got any incentives.Ž Perhaps this breathes some life into the argument that it is not the incentives but the appeal. And we have it, whether the bottom-line suggests any truth in that view. Moonlight,Ž after all „ the achingly beautiful Barry Jenkins story of a young man coming of age in the Liberty City sec-tion of Miami „ was filmed there, without incentives. And it won Best PictureŽ at the 2016 Oscars. But thats the rare coin.Last summer, the HBO series Ballers,Ž starring Florida enthusiast Dwayne The RockŽ Johnson, suddenly pulled out of Florida and moved to California when the incentives dried up. Mr. Johnson has local ties, but it didnt matter. The loss of BallersŽ represents about $20 million per season that will be spent elsewhere, leaving an estimated 2,500 Flo-ridians without work, according to statis-tics cited by the Florida Office of Film and Entertainment. Officials there did not return emails or telephone calls asking for comments. Another show, the popular Netflix series Bloodline,Ž filmed and set in Key West, generated $65 million in new travel spending, 1,738 jobs and $9.4 million in state and local tax revenue in addition to the $30 million in production spending,Ž over a three-year period, according to the Florida Keys & Key West Tourist Develop-ment Council. But the producers scrapped the show, a huge loss for the Keys and South Florida economy. Part of the reason may have been the cost of filming in the pricey Keys, with no state incentives, say critics of the Florida austerity. What all this means, in part, is that movies designed to show Florida settings have actually been shot in Georgia, including two 2017 releases, Ben Afflecks Live By NightŽ and Gifted,Ž with Octavia Spencer and Chris Evans. As a result, the state has lost about $650 million in film and TV expenditures since 2013, according to Augustin Corbel, a law-yer and chairman of the Florida Film and Entertainment Advisory from 2010 to 2016. If were looking for diversification we cant just be lighting the exit signs for tal-ent to leave our state,Ž says Mr. Corbel. Im an optimist, its not a lost cause. But Im a realist „ we have a long struggle to regain preeminence in the top three (with California and New York).Ž Especially with such organizations as the Florida office of Americans for Pros-perity, funded by the Kansas-based Koch brothers, resisting incentives. The organi-zation has vigorously lobbied against tax-payer incentives for cinema and television in Florida, as well as other forms of cor-porate welfare,Ž according to its spokes-man, Andres Malave. That strategy has been embraced by such influential legislators as House Speaker Richard Corcoran, a Pasco Coun-ty Republican. We were, by and large, the only orga-nization in the state arguing against those incentives, and weve been doing it for the last four years,Ž Mr. Malave told Deadline magazine in an October story, How The Power-Broker Koch Brothers Are Killing The Florida Film Business.Ž Although he acknowledges that the film industry is an economic boon, Mr. Malave also argues that taxes should be used only for edu-cation, in transportation, health care and things that are essential.Ž We have a great tax climate and taxclimate infrastructure (in Florida). What the rest of the country is doing is eliminat-ing film programs because the return on investment hasnt been there,Ž he argues. Given the lucrative returns cited by officials on incentive programs for film and television in such states as Georgia, Cali-fornia and New York, the claim is untrue. MCCARTY C. KOCH D.

Americans for Prosperity, however, also insists that its a matter of fairness. It doesnt make sense to give one industry handouts over others,Ž Mr. Malave says. Why shouldnt, say, plumbers get that money?Ž Although Americans for Prosperity has had considerable success lobbying against incentives in North Carolina and Florida, Mr. Malave offers only an oblique answer when asked about his organizations activ-ities in Georgia, which have appeared to be far less energetic. The chickens are going to come home to roost in Georgia,Ž he says. In the Peach State, the Koch Industries company Georgia-Pacific, makers of such paper products as Angel Soft and Quilted Northern toilet paper, has received huge tax incentives, including $7.2 million in property tax breaks last fall in Atlanta where the company is headquartered. Consequently the Americans for Prosperity criticism of incentives makes little sense to Florida indie filmmaker Tim Rit-ter, who also teaches film at the University of Central Florida. That seems kind of like bunk in general because state and national govern-ments give all kinds of breaks to other sections of corporate America, all the time. It seems like they just dont want to allow certain industries to take those winner spots,Ž he says. Aside from the obvious (economic im-pact), the cinema is also a major part of our culture and recent history. The entire world looks toward American films to help influence and shape their own ideas of the world we live in. Our cinema makes a huge impact on the day-to-day life of much of the world. Thats pretty amazing cultural capital.Ž Cultural capital that can help Florida, too. When people visit Los Angeles, what are they going to want to see?Ž Mr. Ritter asks. The glamor of Hollywood. Why not cultivate our own slice of cinematic tour-ism? Ive heard tourism is a pretty big part of Floridas economy.Ž Lori Wyman, seizing on the notion, compares forms of corporate support from the state. If they give $10 million to build a prison system the state gets nothing back,Ž she notes. If you give $10 million to a film you generally get $50 million of spending in the state.Ž Ultimately, leaders wont resist that bottom line appeal, even if they dont like the movies or the art being made. While I am concerned,Ž Ms. Wyman says, I think the film industry will come back. It may not be for years, but it will be back.Ž Neither Ms. Wyman or Mr. Ritter plan to let the lack of state funding curtail their professional trajectories in Florida. I will continue in this state because my filmmaking does exist and always has ex-isted outside of the industry,Ž Mr. Ritter said. Im about as independent as it gets, and my work is done on very small bud-gets. So I can make my work here on the cheap while teaching, which I l ove, and make that work. But if I ever wanted to make my living (solely) as a film or video professional again, Id probably be casting a much wider net than just in this state.Ž The lack of funding may not affect him, he adds, but I know several professionals who have either moved out of Florida or left the industry alto-gether.Ž Other artists struggle but endure, too. John and Madeline Scoular left Holly-wood after 17 years and relocated to Na-ples just before the turn of the decade. They produce, direct and write feature films, documentaries and TV commer-cials, last year winning an Emmy Award for Paradise Reef.Ž The independent documentary film is now appearing on PBS after screening at the 2017 Fort Myers Film Festival. Whatever the Legislature decides to do with tax incentives has no bearing on Scoular Image,Ž says Mr. Scoular. We have to shoot to feed our four children. Weve made three feature films, two of them in Florida without incentives. And we will continue to do what we have to do to keep the lights on.Ž That can mean uncomfortable travel, given the children and the demands. Ive been hired to shoot in New Orleans, at Marthas Vineyard and back in Hollywood,Ž he notes. But our bread and butter is filming in the beautiful state of Florida. Especially where we live „ there aint a bad shot to be had.Ž Like many others who looked to get some of the money when it was available, Mr. Scoular says the incentives werent meant to attract smaller filmmakers to start with. In my humble opinion the incentives were set up for Hollywood films and TV production to bring their films to Florida, not for local Florida-based production companies.Ž If you build it, he argues, Hollywood will come with such TV shows and films as Glades,Ž and Burn Notice.Ž The way it worked, when it worked, was with limited tax incentives, he says. The big companies got most of the benefits, and everybody else had to get in line. Big Hollywood productions hired locals for the small jobs,Ž Mr. Scoular ex-plains. Creative types are just not going to be hired on a project whose genesis began in another state. Directors and principal actors rarely got hired on those jobs.Ž So who did get hired when the incentives fueled business here? Grips, make-up artists, transportation companies, and extras,Ž he says. It was good for a select few. I think when the incentives ended there was a backlog of productions waiting to utilize the credits. And Hollywood left. No din-ner, no movie, no goodbye note!Ž Other artists have remained here as well. Id move to Atlanta in a second if I could,Ž says Flip Minott, a multi-award-winning cinematographer with extensive credits and film experience in and out of Florida. It is an abomination. We used to be third in the country.Ž The loss of state tax credit incentives has certainly been felt in every area across Florida that serves film, television and oth-er entertainment production,Ž says Jeanne Corcoran, director of Sarasota Countys Film and Entertainment Office. Which is why a few local governments, including hers, are offering their own in-centives. Weve seen the budgets for gross spending, by projects, continue to drop. By providing a cash rebate program for production and post production, Sarasota County has helped us keep the volume of productions fairly steady,Ž she says. Graham Winick, the film and event production manager for the city of Miami Beach, is also working on some incentives, helping Film Florida develop a proposal called the Education Retention Bill. The bill would offer as much as a 20 percent reimbursement to films and TV proj-ects generated by graduates of a Florida University. But that incentive comes with a cap. In a nutshell, it offers a modest incentive of up to $500,000 for film, TV or digi-tal media that hires Florida film and digital college alumni in four key roles,Ž Mr. Win-ick says. (It) encourages alums to come back and hire other alums.ŽThe futureMany hope the governor and state legislators will reconsider offering incentives to television and film producers. We have been looking at a number of options over the last year. Our industrys top priority is to collaborate with legisla-tors to find common ground and hope-fully find a solution,Ž Kelly Paige says. Solutions arent found by just saying no, solutions are found by working together because we all have the same goal „ to do whats best for our state.Ž Some, like filmmaker Scoular, point out they have no problem raising taxes on stuff or finding ways to pay. Remember a 50 percent cigarette tax that was supposed to go towards health care? And the lot-tery is supposed to pay for education? Yet my kids public school has fundraisers all year to cover their financial shortcomings. They do OK with toll roads, bridges, air-port and hotel taxes, though.Ž Mr. Scoular has spent a lot of time thinking about the issues. If you can get them to think creatively, the film community might have a shot in getting something new and fresh, where everybody wins. I do, however, find it fun-ny that you have organizations out there asking me to join them and pay them $500 a year so they can lobby Tallahassee so I can get tax credits.Ž Q „ Florida Weekly writer Roger Williams contributed to this report.

Visit us online atS A LOT TO LIKE BUSINESS PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JUNE 15-21, 2017 | A15 WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM Despite steadily improving local job markets and historically low mortgage rates, the U.S. homeownership rate is stuck near a 50-year low because of a perverse mix of affordability challenges, student loan debt, tight credit conditions and housing supply shortages. Thats according to findings of a new white paper titled Hurdles to Home-ownership: Understanding the Barri-ersŽ released last week in recognition of National Homeownership Month at the National Association of Realtors Sustain-able Homeownership Conference at the University of California, Berkeley. Led by a group of experts, including NAR 2017 President William E. Brown, NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun and Berkeley Hass Real Estate Group Chair Ken Rosen, the conference addressed the dip and idleness in the homeowner-ship rate, its drag on the economy and what can be done to ensure more credit-worthy households have the opportunity to buy a home. The decline and stagnation in the homeownership rate is a trend thats pointing in the wrong direction, and must be reversed given the many ben-efits of homeownership to individuals, communities and the nations economy,Ž said Mr. Brown, a Realtor from Alamo, Calif. Those who are financially capable and willing to assume the responsibili-ties of owning a home should have the opportunity to pursue that dream.Ž One of Mr. Browns main objectives as presi-dent of NAR is identifying ways to boost the homeownership rate in a safe and responsible way. The research, which was commissioned by NAR, prepared by Rosen Consulting Group, or RCG, and jointly released by the Fisher Center for Real Estate and Urban Economics at the University of California, Berkeley Haas School of Business, identifies five main barriers that have prevented a significant number of households from purchasing a home. € Post-foreclosure stress disorder. There are long-lasting psychological changes in financial decision-making, including housing tenure choice, for the 9 million homeowners who experienced foreclosure, the 8.7 million people who lost their jobs, and some young adults who witnessed the hardships of their family and friends. While most Ameri-cans still have positive feelings about homeownership, targeted programs and workshops about financial literacy and mortgage debt could help return-buyers and those who may have negative biases about owning. € Mortgage availability. Credit standards have not normalized following the Great Recession. Borrowers with good-to-excellent credit scores are not getting approved at the rate they were in 2003, prior to the period of excessively lax lending standards. Safely restoring lend-ing requirements to accessible standards is key to helping creditworthy house-holds purchase homes. € The growing burden of student loan debt. Young households are repaying an increasing level of student loan debt that makes it extremely difficult to save for a down payment, qualify for a mortgage and afford a mortgage pay-ment, especially in areas with high rents and home prices. As NAR found in a sur-vey released last year, student loan debt is delaying purchases from Millennials and over half expect to be delayed by at least five years. Policy changes need to be enacted that address soaring tuition costs and make repayment less burden-some. € Single-family housing affordability. Lack of inventory, higher rents and home prices, difficulty saving for a down payment and investors weighing on sup-ply levels by scooping up single-family homes have all led to many markets experiencing decaying affordability con-ditions. Unless these challenges subside, RCG forecasts that affordability will fall by an average of nearly 9 percent-age points across all 75 major markets between 2016 and 2019, with approxi-mately 5 million fewer households able to afford the local median-priced home by 2019. Declining affordability needs to be addressed with policies enacted that Study: Five causes at root of low homeownership rateNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS______________________________ “The decline and stagnation in the homeownership rate is a trend that’s pointing in the wrong direction, and must be reversed given the many benefits of homeownership to individuals, communities and the nation’s economy.” — William E.

A16 BUSINESS WEEK OF JUNE 15-21, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLY MONEY & INVESTINGIt has risks, of course, but cloud security company a good investmentPeople always ask me why I continue to write Money & Investing articles now that I am in the jewelry business. I guess there are two main reasons. First, it allows me to stay connected to my previous lifeŽ in finance and feel that the six figures I spend on my financial education is still paying dividends. And second, writing this article forces me to keep abreast on the ever changing and evolving investing landscape. Case in point is when I was paging through some financial websites look-ing for inspiration for this article when I saw a headline about Okta shares rising on strong sales. Now I dont know about you, but I never heard of a company named Okta and was very surprised to see that this was a $2 billion company with quickly growing revenues. So what is Okta and why should this company matter to you? To get an understanding of what Okta does, it helps to understand where the name of the company came from. Okta is a meteorological term that describes the amount of cloud cover over a given area. Oktas business is centered on the cloud, but not those in the sky. Okta pro-vides security for companies that oper-ate online in the technology cloud.Ž The reason investors are so excited about Okta is due to the changing nature of how businesses operate. Historically, employees would do their jobs on their own personal computers on an internal network or on a mainframe computer within the office. Today, in an increas-ingly mobile world where employees work outside of the office or with col-leagues in another country, many com-panies operate online where staff access their work product and applications online. However, this shift in business behavior opens companies to increased security risks. This is where Okta comes in. The company allows employees to easily access the programs they need to do their work while keeping those applications secure. This is a huge and growing business currently worth over $18 billion as estimated by the company. Currently, Okta has trailing revenues of only about $150 million, so clearly there is lots of room for it to grow. That is why investors granted the company unicornŽ status when it rolled out its IPO earlier this year with over a billion dollar market capitalization. Which brings us to this past week when the company announced its first earnings since going public. Revenues jumped 67 percent from the comparable period the year before and surpassed estimates. In addition, the company guided higher on anticipated revenues and income for the next quarter. However, despite strong sales growth there are still significant risk factors for the company. First, Okta continues to lose money due to high spending in marketing, new technologies and R&D costs. Second, there are a number of larger tech companies that could devote significant resources to dominate this area should they choose such as Micro-soft or Third, a security breach could generate poor PR which could harm the companys currently stellar reputation. And from an investing perspective, the company is not priced cheap. Given it is losing money, it has a negative P/E ratio and even its Price/Sales ratio is a staggering 11. In order to continue grow-ing, it must maintain its high growth rate and gradually move toward pro-ducing income. But despite these factors, I think Okta deserves a look from investors. It has positioned itself well in an explosively growing area where it has a first mov-ers advantage, an easy to use product, and a great reputation. If it can keep executing, this may be a company that everyone has heard of in the very near future. 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 Jupiter Medical CEO to take reins at Tampa General HospitalJupiter Medical Center president and CEO John Couris will become its next president and chief executive officer of Tampa General Hospital, the hospital announced last week. Mr. Couris has led Jupiter Medical Center, a 327-bed not-for-profit hospital June 2010. The TGH Board organized a CEO search committee in January 2017 and hired a consultant to conduct a nationwide search. Through an exhaustive and in-depth process, the committee inter-viewed numerous candidates from vari-ous backgrounds and finally decided to offer the position to Mr. Couris because of his experience and passion in academic medicine, his knowledge of the Florida market, his executive experience and his high level of energy and enthusiasm. John Couris brings the talent and energy that a great institution like TGH so richly deserves,Ž said John Brabson, chair of the TGH governing board. Hes a dynamic leader with a passion for quality, innovation and excellence.Ž Dr. Charles Lockwood, dean of the USF Health Morsani College of Medicine, was a member of the search committee and praised the selection. I am very much looking forward to working with Mr. Couris,Ž he said. John has shown a deep understanding of TGH and its unique role as one of the top teaching hospitals in Florida.Ž Mr. Couris launched his professional hospital career in 1990 at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, one of the premier academic medical centers in the country. During his nearly ten years at Mass. General, he served in various lead-ership positions. He joined the BayCare system in August 2000 as a vice president at Mor-ton Plant Mease Health Care in Clear-water. In September 2006, he was named Morton Plant Mease North Bay Hospitals chief operating officer. In 2010 he became the CEO and president of Jupiter Medical Center, where he forged partnerships with such notable providers as Mount Sinai Hospital in New York and Nicklaus Childrens Hospital in Miami. Mr. Couris was involved in the formation of a clinically-integrated network with more than 300 physicians to provide high-quality, low-cost care to the commu-nity and regional businesses. He also led a $50 million expansion plan that included a $30 million investment in medical tech-nology, a new pediatric unit, and a com-prehensive cancer institute. Mr. Couris also established a $300 million fundraising campaign for criti-cally needed medical services, including advanced cardiac care, expanded pedi-atric services and comprehensive stroke care. During his tenure at Jupiter Medical Center, the hospital earned an AŽ rating from LeapFrog Group and a four-star rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Those perfor-mance rankings helped place Jupiter in the states top 10 percent of hospitals. It is a true honor to be selected as the next leader of TGH,Ž said Mr. Couris. It is a great institution with a long history of excellence. Working together as a team, I know in my heart that TGHs best days lie ahead, and together with USF and all the members of our medical staff, we will achieve its full potential as a world class destination for healthcare excellence.Ž Dr. Ravi Bukkapatnam, the chief of staff at Tampa General and a member of the selection committee, said Mr. Couris was the first choice of the medical staff leadership. He showed us a deep under-standing of the rich history and culture of TGH,Ž Dr. Bukkapatnam said. He under-stands the importance of patient quality and patient satisfaction in a way that will benefit Tampa General moving forward.Ž Mr. Couris will start on Sept. 1. Until then, TGH will continue to be led by Steve Short, acting President and CEO. Q Oxbridge Academy students engage in debate during Federal Reserve Challenge Oxbridge Academy brought national monetary policy to life at its annu-al Federal Reserve Challenge in May. Twenty-four students in the Oxbridge Honors Seminar Course in Macroeco-nomics participated in the competition, forming two teams and providing argu-ments in support of monetary policies in a simulated meeting of the Federal Open Market Committee. The event was the culmination of a course in which students study rela-tionships among economic growth, unemployment, inflation and other economic factors. Students also study the business cycle, aggregate demand and supply, fiscal and monetary policy, and learn about the role of the Federal Reserve in the macro economy. Students took on the persona of a Federal Reserve Board member or dis-trict bank president. The students mas-tered Fed speakŽ by engaging with their assigned members, creating mock Face-book profiles, conducting research, and writing speeches on monetary policy. Evaluating the students monetary policy arguments were panelists Aldo Palles, portfolio manager and manag-ing director for U.S. Trust, Bank of America Private Wealth Management; John Poser, vice president of commer-cial and small markets for TD Bank; and James B. Murphy III, senior invest-ment strategist and vice president at Comerica Bank. The keynote speaker was Marycela Diaz-Unzalu, a senior regional economic information net-work director at the Miami Branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta. Participating Oxbridge students were Ben Garelick, Miranda Matthews, Kyle McCracken, Jessica Slater, Guy Quattle-baum, Alex Wong, Mingi Hong, Jordan Bustabad and Zara Barrett in Group 1. Alec Sullivan, Max McGould, Derek Pearson, Steven Ginsberg, Jimmy Kai-ser, Victoria Webster, Kyle Rochefort, Will Brodner, Andrew Yavinsky, Faith Maniti, Alex Tum, Jackson Hanson, John Cotter, Jackson Risbara and Cody Kellner formed Group 2. The modera-tor was Honors Seminar in Macroeco-nomics teacher Rob Frackelton. The overall winner was Group 2, based on their presentation, knowl-edge of economic principles and criti-cal thinking skills demonstrated during the question and answer portion of the competition.

A concentrated effort to combat these obstacles is need-ed to increase building, alleviate supply shortages and preserve affordability for prospective buyers. Low mortgage rates and a healthy job market for college-educated adults should have translated to more home sales and upward movement in the homeownership rate in recent years,Ž said Mr. Yun. Sadly, this has not been the case. Obtaining a mortgage has been tough for those with good credit, savings for a down payment are instead going towards steeper rents and student loans, and first-time buyers are finding that listings in their price range are severely inadequate.Ž Added Mr. Rosen, A healthy housing market is critical to the overall success of the U.S. economy. Too many would-be buyers have been locked out of the market by the factors found in this study, and its also one of the big-gest reasons why economic growth has been subpar in the current recovery.Ž Hurdles to Homeownership: Understanding the BarriersŽ is the second of three papers scheduled for release in 2017 by RCG. Among the findings of the first white paper, Homeownership in Crisis: Where Are We Now?,Ž released earlier this year, RCG estimated that more than $300 billion would have been added to the economy in 2016, representing a 1.8 percent bump to GDP, if homebuilding returned to a more normalized level con-sistent with the historical trend. The third paper„published later this year„will highlight a series of creative policy ideas to promote safe, affordable and sustain-able homeownership opportunities.

Diana Ross at the Kravis BY JANIS FONTAINEpbnews@” oridaweekly.comTo a child of the 60s, there was no brighter star than Diana Ross, with or without The Supremes. In fact, Ross was a ground-breaking, glamourous A-List mega-star, someone who navigated the echelon of super-fame with a ton of class and grace. Her talent was unmatched. Her beauty, unfathomable. And the music? Soulful, with a side of sass. Had the children of the Baby Boom ever heard anything so tender yet commanding, so sweet yet strong, such fine melodies so effort-lessly and passionately delivered? And shes performing at the Kravis Center on June 24. Diana Ross and the In the Name of LoveŽ Tour will stop in West Palm for a single show. Ross has been on the road with this tour since 2013, filling the calendar with hundreds of dates internationally and raking in more than $20 million since 2014. With more than 100 million albums sold in her career, at 73, fans are still showing up to see the willowy soprano belt out favorites including Stop! In the Name of L ove,Ž You Cant Hurry L ove,Ž You Keep Me Hangin On,Ž and Aint No Mountain High Enough.Ž But more than record sales or tour tickets, Ross (and the Supremes, and Motown, for that matter) changed the face of American music. Ross was also a cross-over success, taking her talent from the stage to the silver screen. The 1972 film Lady Sings the Blues,Ž with Ross portraying tragic songbird Billie Holiday, proved her tremendous depth, and earned her a Best ActressŽ Oscar nod. But its the music, plain and simple, that makes Diana Ross an American treasure. President Barack Obama made that affirmation official when he award-ed Ross the Presidential Medal of Free-dom, the nations highest civilian honor, in November.

At first blush, it would appear to be a piece of Wedgwood. But that companys wares typically are a solid color with the white relief design applied to the outside. On the bottom, the piece simply is marked Milan.Ž Online sources say the piece was made by the Dudson Co., of Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent, home to many of the great English potteries. The mark suggests the piece dates from the mid-19th century, before U.S. and other laws required wares from other nations to bear the country of origin. Some sources refer to Dudson as the poor mans Wedgwood.Ž Perhaps its not as fine as Wedgwood. But that does not matter. After all, the pitcher is attractive, with a distinctive shape and color. Equally fun: Dudson still is in business; in 1891, the company shifted its focus to restaurant ware. Q THE FIND:Dudson Pottery Jasperware pitcher COLLECTORS CORNER ‘The poor man’s Wedgwood’ is tantalizing all the sameRuth Coons always comported herself with an air of refinement. She and her husband, Ernie, who had downsized to Fort Myers from New Hampshire, clearly were a little more to the manner born than the rest of us. They walked a miniature poodle named Simone-Simone (nicknamed Simi) and had a dcor that was accented with antiques. Mrs. Coons had made a concession to Florida, though, buying a good-quality white dining set and filling the hutch with Wedgwood Jasperware. Oh, it was gorgeous, and I remember Grandma telling us that it was important enough Mrs. Coons carried a special insurance rider on the collection of English pottery. Back then, Wedgwoods blue and white Jasperware was ubiquitous. Youd see it everywhere from department stores to jewelry stores, along with a few spots in between. Jasperware, created by Josiah Wedgwood in the 1760s was inspired by the Roman cameo-glass Portland vase, which now resides in The British Museum. Much of the ware, usually seen with a white design atop a blue background, bears a classical motif. It would have appealed to an audience fascinated by architectural digs at Pompeii and elsewhere across Europe. The ware was popular enough that other companies wanted to get in on the act, and you can find pieces made by other English firms, as well as German and French companies „ Ive even seen some rather sad-looking replicas that were made in Japan. And it was pricey, at least for the time. New pieces often started at $20 for pin dishes and ashtrays. Antiques, like Mrs. Coons pieces, could well have been priced in the thousands. Curiously, new pieces still fetch in the hundreds „ a single Jasperware cup and saucer set sells for $235 on Wedgwoods website. But the secondary market is another matter, especially in Florida. I recently saw pin dishes priced at $2 apiece at Goodwill and passed on them. After all, I didnt need them and, thanks to changing markets, prices for the pottery have dropped precipitously. Part of it no doubt has to do with all the pieces that are out there on that secondary market. As with Hummels and other collectibles, everyones mother, grandmother or aunt owned pieces of Wedgwood. Older, rarer pieces still command higher prices. But there just is not the demand for most of the workaday pieces many of us inherited from our parents or grandparents, and thats too bad. I dont know what happened to Mrs. Coons collection. She was in her late 70s when she moved from Florida to Massachusetts to be near her family more than 30 years ago. But Id like to think her kids and grandkids valued it as much for its shades of white and blue as well as for whatever monetary value it may have had.

Yes The past cannot remain buried forever,Ž Russell Crowes Dr. Henry Jekyll tells treasure hunter Nick Morton (Tom Cruise) in The Mummy.Ž And darn if that doesnt come true.This is a reboot that feels different from its predecessors (a 1932 original and a 1999 remake), and as a result has a freshness that allows for maximum effectiveness. Princess Ahmanet (Sofia Boutella) was mummified and buried alive in Ancient Egypt. Thats okay, she did bad things. In the present, greedy soldier of fortune Nick, along with his cohort Chris (Jake Johnson) and archaeologist Jenny (Annabelle Wallis), happen upon the princess thoroughly buried tomb and think its a good idea to transport it to London. Appar-ently the six statue watchers,Ž three chains surrounding the tomb and the fact that Ahma-net is buried in mercury werent enough to convince them to leave it alone, even though Jenny at one point calls the burial a prison.Ž So sure, its one of those movies in which smart people do dumb things for the sake of the plot. There are worse things, right? On the way to London, the plane crashes (the films best and coolest action sequence), and Nick and Chris die. Ahman-et has risen. Then Nick wakes up in the morgue, surprised to learn hes become Ahmanets Chosen OneŽ to help her take over the world. It becomes an internal struggle for Nick as he tries to protect Jenny while being lured to join evil. Admittedly, the storys a bit thin and Ahmanet could use a bit more malice. But theres a sense of playfulness about it that works. The screenplay by David Koepp, Christopher McQuarrie and Dylan Kussman treats it as the lighthearted horror flick it is, and credit to Mr. Cruise for conveying time-ly humor at moments that otherwise feel too serious. Overall, the action is decent, the story is easy to follow and its an amusing time at the movies. Isnt that exactly what youre looking for when you buy your ticket? You likely recognize the name of Mr. Crowes character, Dr. Henry Jekyll. Yes, at one point he becomes Mr. Hyde. Why Dr. Jekyll would be in charge of Prodigium, the organization that tracks and eliminates monsters around the world, is anyones guess. Rest assured, though, that director Alex Kurtzman doesnt cram too much into one movie. In fact, this is the first installment of a planned Dark UniverseŽ that Uni-versal Pictures is launching; the next film is director Bill Condons Bride of Frankenstein,Ž coming Feb. 14, 2019. No doubt Dr. Jekyll „ and Mr. Hyde „ will appear again. Future installments of the Dark UniverseŽ will star Javier Bardem as Frankensteins Monster and Johnny Depp as the Invisible Man. As for The Mummy,Ž its respectable. It might not get this hopeful franchise off to a flying start, but its certainly off to a decent enough one to warrant a follow-up. Q dan >> The tagline for “The Mummy” — “A new world of Gods and Monsters” — is taken from a line in the original “Bride of Frankenstein” (1935). PUZZLE ANSWERS

B14 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 15-21, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLYmost relaxed and free and all of my wor-ries and troubles just are gone. Just I feel the most present in that moment.Ž Hell have that opportunity June 17, when he plays Perfect Vodka Amphi-theatre. Its a good thing that Mr. Bent-ley feels at home on the concert stage, because when its come to music, hes made a habit of pushing himself out of his comfort zone and looking for ways to evolve and grow with each album, including his latest release, Black.Ž I think from the very start, we did something that was different,Ž Mr. Bent-ley, 41, said. The song What Was I Thinkin (Mr. Bentleys first hit No. 1 single „ from his 2003 self-titled debut album), it just, the sound of that record and the guys that played on it, you know, Randy Kohrs playing dobro. No one had ever heard of Randy Kohrs before. And his style of playing is like that aggres-sive attack on the dobro, and the way he played, that dobro solo on that song, I think we started off on our own course, carving our own path. And there are times when I got away from pushing and exploring and going for new stuff, and those are the low moments of my career,Ž he said. The times when I have gone after stuff, espe-cially walking away from country music for two years and making (his 2010 blue-grass album) Up on the Ridge, there might not be an immediate payoff on that. It might not be immediate chart success. But in the long term, what that does, what it did at least for my career, is it put me in a place that widened my box and what I can work in.Ž Mr. Bentleys popularity has only grown since Up on the Ridge.Ž He returned to country with 2012s Home,Ž an album that included two No. 1 singles (Am I the Only OneŽ and the title song) and pushed him closer to joining the top tier of country stars. His success continued with the 2014 album, Riser,Ž which added three more No. 1 Country Airplay singles to his resume (I Hold On,Ž Drunk on a PlaneŽ and Say You DoŽ), and BlackŽ has done well so far. Somewhere on a BeachŽ became Mr. Bentleys fastest rising single and topped both the Country Airplay and Hot Coun-try Songs charts. Different For GirlsŽ gave Mr. Bentley a second No. 1 Coun-try Airplay hit from the album, while the song BlackŽ went top 10. Ive been touring for 13 years, and for me to be just now reaching my peak and playing for my biggest audiences and having my biggest hits, its not how I thought it would be,Ž Mr. Bentley said, as he thought back on his career. I thought this would all be happening back in like 2008. But I wouldnt change a thing about it. Im having more fun than ever. Not only do I take it less for granted, I just put more into it.Ž Especially with the latter two albums, Mr. Bentley has continued to push him-self, crafting a sound that stands apart from much of what has been popular on country radio. On Riser,Ž he bucked the emerging bro countryŽ trend of hard-hitting, rock (and even hip-hop)-inflect-ed songs about partying, the charms of hot chicks and the virtues of driving trucks with an album that leaned strong-ly toward emotional ballads and mid-tempo songs that looked at l ove, loss and perseverance. Songs like (Bourbon in Kentucky,Ž Say You Do,Ž Pretty GirlsŽ and the title track) had a darkly hued, atmospheric feel that mixed guitar rock textures with twangy acoustic tones „ not exactly a sound that typified country radio. Heading into making Black,Ž Mr. Bentley didnt initially have a defined idea for the musical direction he wanted to take or for a lyrical theme „ until he started reflecting on his 10-year marriage. He realized that as a husband and father in a committed long-term relationship he could tap into a rich „ and largely over-looked „ vein of lyrical inspiration. The stories created by Mr. Bentley, his co-writers and several outside writers arent all what some might expect given that source of inspiration. Yes, there are songs that celebrate the lasting passion in a long-term relationship (the current single BlackŽ and All The Way To MeŽ) and appreciating the ups and downs of marriage from the perspective of women (Different For GirlsŽ). But Mr. Bentley and the other writers also examine darker emotions and scenarios that can exist in a marriage, such as jealousy (Pick UpŽ), deceit and deception (Ill Be The MoonŽ) and the rush and regret of chasing relationships with the other womanŽ (FreedomŽ and Roses and a Time MachineŽ). I really feel like theres a theme throughout the whole album, and it came just through kind of looking at my own life and my own relationship and trying to write something thats autobiographical and personal, but at the same time (also) try-ing to be as a songwriter exploring stuff that obviously I cant explore in my own personal life,Ž he said. I give credit to my wife for allowing me to make it all public. But I do feel like its an album in its entirety that really does have a start, middle and a finish.Ž The songs are given a distinctive musical setting by Mr. Bentley and his stu-dio team of producer Ross Copperman, executive producer Arturo Buenahora Jr. and engineer F. Reid Shippen. Once again, the songs come with a good deal of atmosphere and tension „ a feel Mr. Bentley said suits the emotional tenor of many of the lyrics. But the BlackŽ album rocks a bit more than Riser,Ž thanks to tunes like Freedom,Ž What The Hell Did I SayŽ and All the Way to Me.Ž Im not trying to do anything other than make records that interest me and reflect the stuff Im into right now,Ž Mr. Bentley said. But I do think these last two records have a theme, have a sound. Its not intentional. Its just who we are in a room, between me and Ross and Arturo and the musicians. I like a lot of the spac-es that exist in some of the songs and not trying to fill every gap in the sound. Like a good guitar solo, its all about the space between the notes as much as it is the notes. Its all the feels and the space. So I think the overall sound its a little more atmospheric at times.Ž Even if Mr. Bentley has been creating a more textured sound recently, fans wont have to worry about any lack of energy in a live show that figures to include lots of hits and a few songs from Black.Ž I never want to lose the audiences attention or break up the party, but at the same time, it would be weird not to do some new music,Ž he said. So well toss some songs in there we think make sense for the tour, but at the same time, well still do what we do, which is try to throw a big-ass party. Its exciting.Ž Q DIERKSFrom page 1 Dierks Bentley What the Hell World Tour With Cole Swindell and Jon Pardi>> When: 7 p.m. June 17 >> Where: Perfect Vodka Amphitheatre, South Florida Fairgrounds, 601-7 Sansbury’s Way, West Palm Beach. >> Tickets: $26 and up. >> Info: Father’s Day concert Still wondering what to do with Dad for Fathers Day?

Other design elements include waterfalls flowing over natural stone, an area for wading birds, and a wall covered with bromeliads. The garden was designed by artists Mags Harries and Lajos Hder in collabo-ration with WGIs landscape architecture division, and with financial support from Margaret Blume, The Batchelor Founda-tion, Hedrick Brothers Construction, Palm Beach County, Heartsong Waterscapes, A-Cut-Above, W GI, Dr. & Mrs. Pedro Diaz and the Friends of Mounts Botanical Gar-den.

As widely as I sample and write about wine, there has always been something of a vacant space in my wine appreciation, and its the wines of Germany. Our collection is packed with bottles from California, Washington State, France, Italy and some stranger places like Moldova. But Ive never been able to get my arms around the way German wine producers classify and label their products. Until now.On a trip to Germany last year, I set out to get myself educated about Riesling, which is the predominant varietal in the region, as well as some of the lesser-known wines, like Gruner Veltliner, Mller-Thur-gau and Gewrztraminer. I am glad I did. The problem has been that the Germans classify their wines „ and label them „ in a very unconventional way „ by level of sweetness. Second, a producer might make 15 or 20 different wines from various blocks in the vineyard. And third, until recently, German wine labels were gorgeously color-ful works of art with completely unreadable Gothic lettering. Add to that descriptive ter-minology like TrockenbeerenausleseŽ and Qualitatswein mit Pradikat,Ž and Ameri-can consumers (like me) can perhaps be excused for scratching their heads in puz-zlement. And, like many people, I originally believed that most, if not all, Rieslings were very sweet. But heres what I discovered. Not only are Rieslings at all levels of sweetness great food wines, but the winemakers have start-ed labeling their bottles in a much more contemporary „ and readable „ style. Our visit to the village of Bernkastel on the Mosel River was a revelation. We were hosted at a private tasting by Bart Kroth, whose family has been making wine in the area for about 500 years, though he doesnt look that old. Bart guided us through several styles of Rieslings that he creates from some of the worlds steepest vineyards. Many of his samples were quite dry, acidic and complex, but of course there were some sweeter styles, which are desig-nated Auslese, Beerenauslese and Trocken-beerenauslese, in order of increasing sugar content. Characteristic flavors of this varietal include peach, honey, citrus and apricot. In a way, its the opposite of Chardonnay. Its grown with great success not only in Germany, where its indigenous, but in Alsace, Washington State, Australia, the Fin-ger Lakes of New York and South America. But there is bad news and good news. Many of the best examples of Riesling from Germany are imported in very small quantities, often less than 100 to 200 cases. And they can be pricey. The good news „ Rieslings from the U.S. and other parts of the world are plentiful, respectably rated and reasonably priced. After some conscientious sampling, Ive settled on the following recommendations.QA.J. Adam Riesling QbA Mosel Dhroner 2016 ($36) „ This wine is from the Mosel region, the place with the really steep vineyards. It has an herbaceous style, featuring grassy flavors and creamy citrus on the finish. WW 90.QPenfolds Riesling Eden Valley Bin 51 2016 ($40) „ Nicely acidic, with characteristic peach and pear flavors. WW 89.QXabregas Riesling Mount Barker 2016 ($20) „ This offering from Australia tends more toward citrus flavors, like tan-gerine, with a nice long finish. WW 89.QSt. Urbans-Hof Wiltinger Alte RebenŽ Riesling 2015 ($18) „ For Riesling lovers, the Saar region may not be as well-known as the Mosel, but this alte rebenŽ (old vine) Riesling strikes a nice balance between bracing acidity and slight sweetness. We noted flavors of Granny Smith apple and Bosc pear, which would make this a great accompaniment to Asian cuisine. Nice. WW 89-90.Ask the Wine WhispererQ: On a recent trip to Sonoma, we loved the peaceful views of the grapevines rolling off into the distance. But I have a feeling that life in the vineyard isnt as idyllic as it looks. Can you comment? „ Bill R., Port St. LucieA: Youre right. Grapevines face multiple hazards that keep winemakers up at night staring at the ceiling. In addition to pests like the glassy-winged sharpshooter and the root louse that spread deadly diseases, theres dry rot, powdery mildew, birds, rac-coons and other critters, frost, hail „ the list goes on. You may have seen vines cov-ered with netting to keep the birds from eating the grapes that should rightfully go into the wine we enjoy. Growing wine grapes is not as attractive or relaxing as it looks from your hotel room balcony. Q „ Jerry Greenfield is The Wine Whisperer.

You may not be going through the physical changes, but youre probably counting down the days until the birth of your child, helping to get the babys room ready and already thinking about buying toys and gadgets. Because this is your first time, you may be wondering How will I know how to take care of a newborn?Ž The medical professionals at The Birthplace at St. Marys Medical Cen-ter have made it their goal to not only help families welcome their bundles of joy, but to also make sure mom and dad learn pertinent information prior to their childs birth. Prenatal education classes cover topics includ-ing childbirth education, breastfeeding, preparing siblings for the arrival of a new brother or sister, and helping first time fathers better understand whats to come. Below are some suggestions that may help facilitate the transition to your new life as a parent. Some guidelines to remember Take a deep breath and relax. Babies are not breakable, so dont be afraid to hold your new son or daughter. Ask a doctor, nurse, relative or friend to show you some good holds for newborns. Remember all those hours you spent learning how to master your favorite hobby? Practice makes perfect and the same holds true in caring for an infant. The more you change a diaper, give a bottle or soothe a crying baby, the more familiarized you can become. Safety is important. Ensure that you properly support your babys head and neck, and under no circumstances should you shake a baby or young child as this may result in brain injury. Its also important to learn how to properly secure a car seat and make certain that your infant is securely fastened. While mom is feeding the baby, you can still help. Since babies typically go through three to four outfits a day, you can take care of a load or two of laundry. You can also consider tidying up around the house, and even cooking or ordering a few meals. If family and friends want to bring over food, take them up on their offers. Until you settle into a regular schedule, you may both feel too tired to cook. To give your partner a break, offer to take the baby for the day so she can rest and catch up on her sleep. This also gives you some one-on-one bonding time with your child, and your little one will enjoy the stimulation of a change of scenery or activity. Just remember that things can take longer with a baby, so plan your schedule accordingly and make time for diaper changes, bottle feedings and naps. If your baby is crying, he is trying to communicate with you the only way he can. Listen closely and it shouldnt take long for you to know your babys different cries signaling a wet diaper, hunger or sickness. Call your childs pediatrician with questions or concerns, especially if he or she has a fever over 100 degrees, cries persistently for no apparent reason or if you feel there may be a serious health problem. And last but not least, take care of yourself. Follow a healthy diet, take a paternity leave or use vacation time to spend as much quality dad time as you can with your baby. Talk with other fathers about their experiences. Youll find that time flies after your baby is born and on your first Fathers Day you can proudly wear your favorite tee shirt that says Worlds Greatest Dad.Ž Dads helping dads One of the many prenatal education courses offered at The Birthplace at St. Marys Medical Center is Daddy Boot Camp. This one day course is designed to help first time fathers learn more about forming a family, caring for their partner during this new experience and life as a dad. The class is taught by fathers who were in the same situation as their students and want to help coach them through this exciting time.

In the United States, 29.1 million people are living with diagnosed or undiag-nosed diabetes, and about 208,000 people younger than 20 years of age are living with diagnosed diabetes. The SEARCH for Diabetes in Youth study is the first ever to estimate trends in new diagnosed cases of type 1 and type 2 diabetes in youth (those under the age of 20) from the five major racial/ethnic groups in the United States: non-Hispanic whites, non-Hispanic blacks, Hispanics, Asian Americans/Pacific Islanders and Native Americans. (The Native American youth who participated in the study are not representative of all Native American youth in the United States. Thus, these rates cannot be generalized to all Native American youth nationwide.) Funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Institutes of Health, the SEARCH study found that from 2002 to 2012, incidence, or the rate of new diagnosed cases of type 1 diabetes in youth increased by about 1.8 percent each year. During the same period, the rate of new diagnosed cases of type 2 diabetes increased even more quickly, at 4.8 percent. The study included 11,244 youth ages 0-19 with type 1 diabetes and 2,846 youth ages 10-19 with type 2. The study results reflect the nations first and only ongoing assessment of trends in type 1 and type 2 diabetes among youth and help identify how the epidemic is changing over time in Ameri-cans under the age of 20 years.Key findingsQ Across all racial/ethnic groups, the rate of new diagnosed cases of type 1 dia-betes increased more annually from 2003-2012 in males (2.2 percent) than in females (1.4 percent) ages 0-19. QAmong youth ages 0-19, the rate of new type 1 diabetes cases increased most sharply in Hispanic youth, a 4.2 percent annual increase. In non-Hispanic blacks, the rate of new diagnosed cases of type 1 diabetes increased by 2.2 percent and in non-Hispanic whites by 1.2 percent.Q Among youth ages 10-19, the rate of new diagnosed cases of type 2 diabetes rose most sharply in Native Americans (8.9 percent), Asian Americans/Pacific Island-ers (8.5 percent) and non-Hispanic blacks (6.3 percent).

C6 healthy living JUNE 2017 ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLYamphetamines. Each addiction comes with a host of complications when attempting to discontinue use of the substance. After admitting that there is a problem and committing to seek treat-ment, the next step is finding the right place to detox, which can make all the difference in the road to recovery. Detox is the process by which a patient removes the addictive sub-stances and toxins from his or her sys-tem. When working through medically managed detox, medical professionals administer prescription medication to help a patient stop the use of addictive substances in an environment and man-ner that is safe and effective. Medical detox is an essential first step in treating alcohol and drug addiction. Attempting to quit an addiction to drugs or alcohol can be extremely dif-ficult, and nearly impossible without the assistance of a detox center. Additionally, stopping the use of drugs and alcohol sud-denly can quickly turn into a medically serious situation. Symptoms of withdraw-al can include increased blood pressure, hallucinations, delirium and seizures, as well as a host of emotional and psycho-logical disturbances. In addition to the physical symptoms, abruptly stopping the use of drugs or alcohol without medical assistance will cause very intense crav-ings for the abused substance, making quitting that much more difficult. There are many important factors that go into choosing the right detox for a particular patient: the length of the detox program, the types of medications used, the size of the facility, and what kind of clinical resources the center has at its disposal. Choosing a detox center that is affiliated or connected directly to a hospital allows the patients to have continuity of care should they need to seek more aggressive medical attention during treatment. Having a hospital con-nected to a detox facility enables medi-cal staff to continue a detox program without interruption should a patient need specific medical attention. The best detox centers will have a high-quality monitoring program, including a 24-hour nursing staff, as well as a doctor who evaluates each patient on a daily basis. In detox treatment, the status of the patient can change dra-matically from day to day and changes to medication may be necessary. As a result, a patient should be continually evaluated by a medical professional that is trained in addiction treatment. Addi-tionally, providing a social worker can be key to helping patients with their life outside of the detox center. The detox process takes time and yet many facilities try to rush the treat-ment for insurance reasons. Completing the full course of the detox program is essential to mitigating the likelihood of relapse and falling back into old habits. Whatever size, style or type of detox an individual ultimately selects, the most important thing is choosing one that works for the patients needs and provides the best care and comfort. Addiction is not shameful. It is a disease. When patients feel empowered to seek out the assistance of medical pro-fessionals, they have taken the first step to getting back to the life they deserve. Dr. Raju Mangrola is an addiction psychiatrist and the medical director of the Lighthouse Detox at Jupiter Medical Center. For more information on Light-house Detox go to Q DETOXFrom page 1 No double chin, no surgery, no kidding! A re you bothered by the fullness beneath your chin? Youre not alone. You may be staring at your submental fullness or your double chinŽ wondering why it will not go away. A double chin is a common, yet undertreated facial aesthetic condition. It can detract from an otherwise bal-anced and harmonious facial appear-ance, lead to an older and heavier look, impact a broad range of adults and may be caused by aging, genetics and/or weight gain. Fortunately, KYBELLA can help. KYBELLA is the first and only FDAapproved treat-ment to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat beneath the chin (submental full-ness) by physically destroying fat cells. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBEL-LA permanently destroys fat cells. Once theyre gone, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. Your bodys natural metabolism then processes the fat cleared from the treatment area.

C8 healthy living JUNE 2017 ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLY Keeping your gut in check: healthy ways to stay on tract SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYNIH News in HealthYour digestive system is busy. When you eat something, your food takes a twisty trip that starts with being chewed up and ends with you going to the bathroom. A lot hap-pens in between. The health of your gut plays a key role in your overall health and well-being. You can make choices to help your body stay on tract. Your digestive, or gastrointestinal, tract is a long, muscular tube that runs from your mouth to your anus. Its about 30 feet long and works with other parts of your digestive system to break food and drink down into smaller molecules of nutrients. The blood absorbs these and carries them throughout the body for cells to use for energy, growth and repair. With such a long GI highway, its common to run into bumps in the road. About 60 to 70 million Americans are affected by digestive diseases, such as gastroesopha-geal reflux disease or irritable bowel syn-drome. GERD happens when your stom-ach acid and/or contents come back up into your esophagus (swallowing tube) or throat. This causes uncomfortable symp-toms such as heartburn and indigestion. IBS is a group of symptoms that includes pain in the abdomen and changes in bowel habits. People with IBS may have constipa-tion, diarrhea or both. Many more people have other digestive problems, like bloating and stomach pain. There are many factors that can impact gut health,Ž says Dr. Lin Chang, a GI expert at the University of California, Los Angeles. How your bodys built, your family and genetic history, how you manage stress and what you eat can all affect your gut. I see a lot of lifestyle-related GI issues, and there are often no quick fixes for that,Ž she says. In general, people do well when they create a more routine schedule, eat a healthy diet and smaller more frequent meals, add in some exercise and get a good amount of sleep.Ž Chang studies the connection between stress and IBS. Her research group has found that people who have early life stress are more likely to develop IBS. However, this increased risk for IBS went down when people confided in some-one they trust about the stress they experi-enced,Ž she explains. Finding healthy ways to manage stress is important for GI health and your health overall.Ž What you eat can help or hurt your digestive system and influence how you feel. Increasing fiber is really important for constipation,Ž says Dr. Chang. Most Americans do not eat a lot of fiber, so you have to gradually increase the fiber in your diet. Otherwise you might get gas and more bloating and wont stick with (the changes).Ž Dr. Chang says you should eat at least 20-30 grams of fiber a day for constipation. You can spread out your fiber in small amounts throughout the day. Start with small servings and gradually increase them to avoid gas, bloating and discomfort. Try to eat fruits and vegetables at every meal. A variety of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and nuts can provide a healthy mix of different fibers and nutrients to your diet. An added benefit is that the more fiber and whole foods you eat, the less room youll have for less-healthy options. But some fiber-rich foods, called high FODMAP foods, can be hard to digest. Examples include certain fruits and veg-etables, dairy products, and wheat and rye products. If you have IBS, your doctor may recommend a diet low in FODMAPS. Researchers are coming to understand the complex community of bacteria and other microbes that live in the human GI tract. Called gut flora or microbiota, these microbes help with our digestion. But evi-dence has been growing that gut microbes may influence our health in other ways too. Studies suggest that they may play roles in obesity, type 2 diabetes, IBS and colon cancer. They might also affect how the immune system functions. This can affect how your body fights illness and disease. Recent studies have found that microbes effects on the immune system may impact the development of conditions such as allergy, asthma and rheumatoid arthritis. You might have heard that probiotics „ live microbes that are similar to those found in the human gut „ can improve your gut health. These are also called friendlyŽ or goodŽ bacteria. Probiotics are available in dietary supplements and in certain foods, such as yogurt. There is some evidence that probiotics may be helpful in preventing diarrhea associated with antibiotics and improving symptoms of IBS, but more needs to be learned. Researchers still dont know which probiotics are helpful and which arent. They also dont know how much of the probi-otics people would have to take or who would most likely benefit from them. Certain food additives, called emulsifiers, are something else that may affect your gut health. Emulsifiers are added to many processed foods to improve texture and extend shelf life, but studies show they can affect our gut flora. Our work and other research indicate that emulsifiers and other food additives can negatively impact the microbiota and promote inflammatory diseases,Ž says Georgia State Universitys Dr. Andrew Gewirtz. His group has been studying the relationships between food additives, gut bac-teria and disease in mice. The team also plans to examine how different food additives may affect people. Based on what his team and others have found, Dr. Gewirtz advises, The take home message: Eat a balanced diet and less pro-cessed foods.Ž The GI system is complicated and such an important part of our health,Ž Dr. Chang says. It takes a real partnership between patient and doctor to get to the root of issues. Everyone has to find a healthy routine that works for them.Ž Q Scientists unravel how protein impacts intellectual disabilityYour brain needs just the right balance between excitatory onŽ signals and inhibitory calm downŽ signals. Now scientists from the Florida cam-pus of The Scripps Research Institute have shown that a protein helps balance nerve cell communication. The study, published recently online in the journal Cell Reports, could have implications for potential treatments of intellectual disability and other neuro-developmental disorders. This paper adds a new dimension to our understanding of the molecu-lar mechanisms that impact intellec-tual disability,Ž said Brock Grill, a TSRI associate professor in the Department of Neuroscience. Our study is the first to identify a defect in neuron communica-tion caused by alter-ing the activity of a gene called HUWE1, which causes intel-lectual disability, including JubergMarsidi-Brooks syndrome.Ž Studying neuronal communication is important because the brain needs to balance excitatory neurotransmitters (to increase signal transmission) and inhibitory neurotransmitters (to calm nerve cells down). An imbalance in the excitatory/inhibitory ratio is a central feature of many neurodevelopmental disorders „ which occurs through gene overexpression or a loss of gene func-tion. For the study, Mr. Grill and his colleagues investigated neuronal commu-nication balance using a simple model circuit in the nematode C. elegans, a small, transparent worm. Despite its small size, this worm shares half its genetic make-up with humans, which makes it an ideal model to study the genetics of neuron function. The researchers took a close look at GABA, the principal inhibitory neu-rotransmitter in C. elegans and the human brain. In C. elegans, the protein responsible for regulating GABA trans-mission is called EEL-1; in humans, the equivalent protein is known as HUWE1. The researchers studied the function of EEL-1/HUWE1 in the worm motor circuit and found that decreasing or increasing the protein alters GABA transmission, upending the excitatory/inhibitory balance, a shift that leads to impaired locomotion and increased sensitivity to electroshock-induced sei-zure. Using a simple model circuit, weve identified a key player required to achieve a balance of excitation and inhibition,Ž Mr. Grill said. This opens up a new concept for why HUWE1 causes intellectual disability.Ž HUWE1 affects only the release of the GABA neurotransmitter, not the levels or function of the GABA recep-tor, Mr. Grill noted. He said more research is needed into how this actu-ally affects the brain. The paper is an important step in understanding how increased or decreased activity of HUWE1 can alter circuit function and lead to intellectual disability,Ž said TSRI Research Assis-tant Karla Opperman, first author of the study. The study represents important progress in understanding the molecu-lar underpinnings of intellectual dis-ability. In particular, results from the study show for the first time that muta-tions that cause Juberg-Marsidi-Brooks syndrome result in loss of HUWE1 function and can impair nerve cell function. In addition to Mr. Grill and Ms. Opperman, other authors of the study, The HECT Family Ubiquitin Ligase EEL-1 Regulates Neuronal Function and Development,Ž are Andrew Giles and Rayna L. Birnbaum of TSRI; Ben Mulcahy and Mei Zhen of the Lunen-feld-Tannenbaum Research Institute, Mt. Sinai Hospital, Toronto; Monica G. Risley and Ken Dawson-Scully of Florida Atlantic University; and Erik D. Tulgren of the University of Minnesota.

C10 healthy living JUNE 2017 ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLY Hurricane Season: Prepare now for senior loved ones BY IRV SELDIN, JD President and owner, Visiting Angels of the Palm Beaches H ow can you keep your senior loved ones safe from the hazards of hurricane season? Hurricane preparedness can be complex with walkers and wheelchairs, hearing and vision loss, or when regular medical treatment and medications are essential. How do you find peace of mind when an elderly family member with age related illnesses or cognitive impairment is liv-ing alone, a distance away, or in an evacu-ation zone? You need to plan ahead. First, decide if the projected direction and strength of the storm will impact the ability of your loved one to remain in their home. If the deci-sion is made to evacuate, highways will be congested or flooded, so plan to leave as far in advance as possible. If the decision is made to stay, then make protecting your loved one and their residence a priority. Have an alternate residence lined up in case of damage to the home, and buy a medical alert device that can track an individual if they wander or go missing. If medical equipment that runs on electricity is required, if your Senior family member has dementia or a medical condition that needs monitoring, or if they require cus-todial care, register with the Palm Beach County special needs shelter. Transport is provided. Space is limited. You will still need to pack the items listed in #2 below. To find out more and download an application visit: or call 712-6400.Second, even if your Senior loved one should decide to remain in their home, they should still be able to protect them-selves in the event of a serious storm. Heres how to help them prepare properly:1) Gather a support network of people in the area who can check on your loved one in an emergency, assess their safety and provide assistance. Give each a key to the residence in advance, and be sure they know where the emergencyŽ sup-plies are kept. Plan how you will contact each person if telephones/cellphones may not be working. Texting is often available even if a phone call will not go through. Have a pre-prepared list of the Seniors doctors and prescriptions on hand, as well as copies of any advanced directives and insurance information. 2) Establish what are the essential items needed to survive at home for at least 3 days, and evaluate what might be required in case of evacuation. Bundle these sup-plies in a large travel bag with wheels and keep it in a handy spot. The Senior Survival KitŽ should include: Q Bottled water, approximately onethree gallons per day; Q First aid kit and a weeks supply of any medications needed; medical devices and supplies like oxygen, inhalers; an extra pair of eyeglasses, hearing aids, Depends etc.; Q Cell phone and charger; written list of important phone numbers and contact info in case the phone dies and the con-tacts list is not accessible; Q Flashlight or lantern, battery operated radio and a whistle; Q Protein bars and other wrapped or easy-to-open packaged food; Q Clothing and a blanket. 3) Make an emergency response plan to fit the Seniors abilities and physical limitations, and the procedures in their community. It is easier to stay calm when you know what to do! Try to maintain the daily routine as much as possible. Things to consider: Q Rehearsing an evacuation, the fastest way out of the home to the nearest friend, relative, or safe public area; Q Contacting the local township about how to arrange for evacuation if the Senior does not have access to a car or cannot drive; Q Keeping canes, walkers and wheelchairs in a central, accessible area; Q Figuring out alternative sources for keeping items cool, especially medica-tions; Q Developing a plan for cooking, garbage, and waste management; Q Pre-testing smoke and carbon monoxide alarms, know how to shut off utili-ties if lines are damaged; Q Making a contingency plan for any household pets and their needs; Q Finding out about long term care benefits, and home health services or care management options in the area if the Senior is alone; Q Putting passports, social security cards, wills, birth certificates etc., in a safety deposit box or other safe location, and making digital copies; Q Talking to an insurance agent in advance about homeowners or hazard policies in place. If your Senior loved one resides in an assisted living facility or nursing home, chances are a disaster response plan already exists. If they receive homecare, be sure to ask the Home Health Agency in place about their hurricane procedures and comprehensive Emergency Manage-ment Plan.Additional resources and helpful checklists can be found here in Eng-lish and Spanish: The Palm Beach County Red Cross provides food, shelter and first aid in emergency situations, call 833-7711 or visit their websites for additional resources and information: Q SELDIN Visit us online atS A LOT TO LIKE
